Sorelle Amore: A Central Digital Credit System Favors the Government
"I want to play one more cut for you This is sarella Moore explaining digital currency She's pretty popular on these video platforms Talking again about the danger of this stuff Folks it is nothing more than a mechanism to make your phone not only a homing Beacon and a location device but to make it a device to be able to shut off your money at a moment's notice So you can't escape you can't get out of a country you can't get out of a location and you can't buy anything if the government deems you unworthy deplorable or one of the Here listen to this The government is already able to program what its citizens can and can not spend their money on Over the last few years they've limited millions of people's ability to buy things like train tickets passports and luxury goods They're able to do this because of China's intense social credit system that links each person's identity and actions to their bank account Allowing the government to see and to control everything a citizen does with their money And it seems like the west is paying attention The nations like Sweden South Africa and Canada trials of programmable Central Bank currencies are already underway In fact almost half of the world's nations are at some stage of implementing this kind of programmable money meaning no matter where in the world you live this technology is likely only a few years away Ah there you go Wow that's not coming here Really Really it's not there I'm telling you there are some Republicans who support this Two No it is coming here We still got time to stop it She said something very interesting there too Did you guys catch it Did you mention train tickets And tickets and plane tickets The great way to keep dissidents air quotes from traveling out of your country if you're the Chinese Communist Party right Shut down their money so they can't buy a plane ticket out Then they can say oh is this a prison state No no it's not a they can leave any time
Fresh update on "africa" discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast
"Disadvantage of that is when you come out of the morning if you turn on your light in your back of your head because we were mobile camping, then you're attracting all the bugs. And so that part was not quite as interesting. But yeah, you're getting a lot of birds. The birds literally fly down from Europe because they're so many bugs that it's a feast. So it's worth going for. Yes. You really do have to when you're picking a trip, look at when you are able to travel and what countries what season you're going to hit, obviously, to spend this amount of money. You want to go in a season that's optimal for what you want to see. Right. So I might mention in the second camp that we were in in the you sango camp. It had just opened. We have booked all four of our safaris through a company called ATR, which is Africa travel resource. And the guy who helps me plan the trips, he had been to this camp, like the month it opened. And we were there like the second month, it was open. It wasn't fault a capacity when we were there. In fact, the first night we were the only people there. We were definitely treated like royalty. But the really cool thing about this camp is they've take a different slant on the safari experience. First, they have some of those newer tents in which one curved wall is all screen. And when you look through it, your eye focuses past the screen and it's almost like you're in the wide open. It's really beautiful. So instead of having all around you, except maybe one panel where you look out on your little outside section. These newer tents are really amazing. They're very beautiful to be in. But this camp also had a small research station there with a researcher who studies predators. On the vehicle, the first day we got there, we took two camera traps and set them up and a camera trap, you set it up near a dirt road. At least that's where we did it. You could maybe have it near a Lake or a river or wherever you think animals will be. And where we were the animals make use of the dirt road because it's easier to walk on than making your way to a scrub for us. So we set up these camera traps and what they do is they're motion activated. So when something walks by, it takes pictures. And so at the end of your stay, you go pick up your camera trap, take out the sim card, put it in the computer, and you can see pictures of the animals that walk by in the night. So you see a Lion walk by. You see a kudu walk by, you see a little mongoose shuffling thought. You see a lion with a collar walking by. It's really fascinating. I downloaded the pictures that it took over that two day period, and kept them. The other thing that this camp did was they had night vision camera that was synced to the iPad and they had an iPad sitting up facing us in the back seat first tier of seats. And so what he saw in the camera, we saw on the iPad. And it was really quite fun. They were learning the technology as we worked with them. My husband had experience in the night vision cameras. He was working with the guy on that. And it was really amazing what you could see without using a spotlight.
The Big Lie About 'Great Replacement Theory'
"Let me get back to finishing up my thoughts on the replacement theory. Some people believe that it's because of the color of your skin, which I think is an absolute most stupid thing that I've ever heard in my life that somebody believes that because you're black, you're dumb. You know, and it's a concept that I think people generalize others with. Like, for instance, if you're Kanye West, and some Jewish people screwed you over. They don't mean that every Jew is like this. That just means the people you mess with. Screwed you over and you have a disdain for them. Same thing with I know some black people that have done me wrong that have said the most hurtful evil things to me. Does that mean that all black people are like that? No, it doesn't. That just means these people are like that. The same thing when it comes to crime. Yeah, black people commit disproportionate amounts of crime in this country. It's not because they're black. It's because of culture. Because black people who follow the law and who are not engulfed in that culture, they are not out here killing and stealing and drug dealing. That's just the way it is. People who come to this country that are from India that are from Africa that are from, I don't know, Saudi Arabia, whatever you want to say these people are from the Middle East. People come to this country. Some people that migrate here that are brown, they do well. Why do they do well? It's not because the color of their skin is because they have adopted the American Dream.

Kanye West and Nick Fuentes Meet With Former President Trump
"So Kanye West visited the president Trump and he brought man named Nick Fuentes. I was not familiar with him prior to this. And my belief has always been that there is a special place in hell, and I believe in hell. For the people who deny the Holocaust. You have to be a particularly vile human being for your contempt for truth. And you're loathing of the Jews. I hesitate to even say that there is no more documented event of which I am aware. Than the Holocaust. You know, when I first heard that there were people who denied it happened I remember a guy called my show and actually said that. Many, many years ago. And I didn't yell at him, all I said was, so I assume that you'll call up a talk show now and say that no slaves were no slavery took place. That, in fact, the blacks came from Africa on cruise ships. He said, no, no, no, I would never say that. Said, why not? That's the same denying slavery is the same as denying the Holocaust. It's so, but it's interesting. They don't deny slavery. So that's why it's clear that it's clear that there's a hatred of Jews. Involved, but the hatred of truth is even more dangerous in some ways than the hatred of Jews. But the hatred of truth always leads to evil. That Kanye West brought this low life is vile creature to the white, not The White House. Tomorrow Lago. Is doesn't speak well for Kanye West. That he even associates with Nick Fuentes gives you an idea of the low level to which he has sunk.
Caller: A Theory to Explain High Grocery Prices
"Are my quiver a little bit? Because I'm nervous. I've never been on the radio talk show before. I think you might hit the nail on the head there with your first what's going on. We got people starving and all across the Africa. Ukraine is in terrible shape, for instance, being tortured, country, people in China being locked in their own apartments through the COVID, and to be honest with you, I believe those companies do what they do to cut back on payroll in order to do what they do to keep our prices low. That's why they do what they do. That's why they have self checkout and all that kind of stuff. I don't know, it's just kind of with everything else that's going on in this world. It's just kind of sad to see somebody get so upset and cry and complain about something. Oh, a lot of people are a lot of people are fired up about this on the social media's Troy, but here's what gets me though. I don't mean to interrupt. Here's what gets me Troy. Hold on, hold on, I'll let you talk. What gets me as I hear your point there, but they're not lower in the prices. And I only know that because one of our staff just paid almost 8 bucks for a little thing of strawberries.

Dr. Walid Phares Comments on the Relationship Between Russia and Iran
"So the big question, the reason I wanted to have you in studio in front of the cameras professor is to ask about this seemingly shocking news that a nation that was ranked second in the world only to America in terms of its military might. That's the Russian Federation. In a war against Ukraine, which was ranked 22nd, so second fighting 22nd and doesn't seem to be winning, we actually have photographs now from Ukraine and others of Iranian drones being captured by the Ukrainians that are being deployed by the Russians. What is going on? Why is a Middle Eastern country that is economically on its knees? Providing. Aerial vehicles to Russia to a superpower. You know, when that started actually and the Iranian regime is not shy about it, they're making statements. Oh, these officers, I call them the Africa corps take sent into Russia to fight Ukraine. And then I investigated by listening a little bit to the social media on the one hand, and of course some sources in Iran talk a lot. So it looks like it's much bigger than just providing drones to Russia. I mean, Iran providing it's Russia that's providing the ballistics to Iran. So there is a strategic reason. And that reason is the following. Iran is preparing itself to declare that it is a nuclear power. How? On the one hand, they're doing the decoy strategy, which is they are building that nuclear power. Reality is Russia is going to say, to their own people, Iran helped us in the darkest hours. They send their drugs. They were all good friends. They were a good friend. So is that what we're going to do when Iran is threatened this regime, especially now, we're going to stretch our nuclear umbrella

Crime and Punishment
"I saw a video just recently of a guy who was kidnapped and he was fear. He was kidnapping people and that's how he was making money on social media. He was acting like he was an entrepreneur, but him and his friends were kidnapping people. It was just in Africa somewhere. He was kidnapping people, and then he was extraordinary. And then that's how he was making money. But when they called him, they had him out there in the middle of the street in his underwear. With handcuffs on his hands, and I just looking at him on his knees, the whimpering, they probably was beating him. He was getting some lashes. And you know, nowadays, and I'm not, I'm not trying to dig and promote violence in it like that. I'm just saying, what are we doing ain't working clearly? You get the kids after they go to jail and they have a good time. They go up in there and they, they join the game, they have a little bit of protection. They are. Maybe if they don't join the game and get raped in there and that just what it is. But for the most part, they go to these prisons and they get three hots and a cot. They finally put money in their books. They get little meals and they get to read. They become Muslim and all this other stuff they do in jail. They ain't that ain't that hard for some people to do a couple years. It ain't that hard. That's why residency is that high, 'cause clearly when they go to jail, it's not they ain't feeling the pressure. Some of these countries man, they beat you. You get, oh, you get exposed openly. I remember when our countries do the firing squad. You know, now we don't want to let your chairs too much. Oh, no, corporation. No, death penalty is too much. Just let them live off taxpayer dollar for the rest of their life. When they mutilated somebody, we're afraid to give them the death penalty. Man, put these people to death and quit playing.
What's Happening in the Middle East? Mike Doran Explains
"So that's a little bit of credentialing here. What was your job in the NSC? Michael Duran? I was the senior director for the Middle East and North Africa. And he was the man for that region in the NSC and then in the DoD. I was a dazzy deputy assistant Secretary of Defense. He's using Washington lingo to go there. So this is your real forte your area of expertise. What is happening in the Middle East is this just another one of these cyclical low level pushback against the regime of the mullahs in Iran that will be quashed like all the others or are you seeing signs of something different here? Let's while Mike's talking, let's run a bit of B roll of these incredibly brave women, most of them very, very young, ripping off their hijabs, ripping off their scarves and just dancing through the streets of Tehran. Tell us Mike, what's going on? Is this different? It is different. It's a $64,000 question as to whether it will become just one more wave. But it is a wave of protests that's different from all of the others. How? It's, first of all, it's gone on longer. It's wider, it's in all the ethnic areas, all the different ethnic areas, Iran's a multi ethnic country, all Strata of society. In all of the cities, and interestingly, it's more obviously directly explicitly anti regime than any of the other protests. Because of the headscarf element. The head scarf is a symbol of the regime. It's not, this isn't just feminism. These aren't just women. This is oppression by the regime. Yes. And so that is the symbol of the regime. If you're against the headscarf, you're against the regime by definition. So

Democrats Cannot Answer THIS Question
"Extent is man-made activity contributing to rising global temperatures. They can not give you that answer. They can't. Are there any other potential explanations for rising global temperatures? Over the past couple thousand years have global temperatures risen or fallen absent human activity? Have there been other environmental changes regionally from the Mediterranean climate to north England to sub Saharan Africa that might have changed not because of human activity, but because of other actions, when you have a hemisphere, when you have a planet that is so large and so massive, isn't it rational to believe that there could be other inputs or other potential, let's say, other potential explanations as to why the earth would be getting warmer? Is and here's the other question to what extent extent to what extent are other variables factored in. And here's the most important question. Let's pretend they're right about the alarmism. Let's pretend they're right about all this, even though none of their predictions come true. One prediction after the other is exaggerated is elaborated. Does that then mean this is the most important question does that then mean we put into jeopardy our ability to power our hospitals, transportation, our economic engine so then we then satisfy the slight increase in rising global temperatures? Is that right? And if so, why are you then making a widespread moral argument? Because that is a moral argument. Under what basis do you make that argument that poor people in America now have to pay 30 or 40% more to heat their homes this winter? That working class people have to pay 30 or 40% more to drive to work. Why? Because while she says, we own the science and the world should know it.
White Farmers in South Africa Are Facing Land Seizures and Violence
"Don't know if you've been following what's been going on in the last well now several years. In South Africa, South Africa, now black majority country, ruled by the rule really by the party that was instrumental in overthrowing apartheid, the party that fought apartheid for decades, the party of the African National Congress sometimes known as the ANC. And now South Africa has a multi party system. There are a number of parties. The ANC party is the majority party. And it controls the National Assembly. And what's been going on in South Africa really quite alarming, disturbing in many ways, two things. One is the forfeiture and confiscation of the land. Of white people, particularly white farmers. Now, some of this is unquestionably a legacy of apartheid, but nevertheless, what you have is you've got black gangs showing up at white farmhouses and the second point is not just the confiscation of land, but horrific assaults attacks and murders. There have been murders of whole families in some cases. And so the white farmers are living, well, let's just call it on the edge. And let's remember that they are also in a black majority society. Sometimes it's tempting to make a kind of easy comparison between the situation in the United States. Let's say the situation in the United States going back to the days of segregation. Because in some ways, there is an analogy between the segregationists and the segregationists here would be the Democrats in the south. And the afrikaners who are the ruling party, the African or government, in South Africa, imposing segregation on the blacks in South Africa. But of course, the key difference was that in the south, blacks were a minority. It was the white majority. Run by the Democrats who imposed segregation, whereas in South Africa, it was a white minority of Africans, the Africans originally descended from the Dutch, who migrated to South Africa going back now a couple of centuries, or a century and a half. And so when apartheid was overturned, you now had a very unstable and dangerous situation because in some ways what the black majority wanted and it's not it's understandable why this impulse would be there is revenge.

"africa" Discussed on Future Cities Africa
"That allow planners to communicate notre day in the past but more and more you can be able to communicate with different types of audiences from the same sort of platforms portals in this really providing enhancing towards planners can and cannot do to to drive the different futures that we're hoping for so i was pointing to for example being able to visualization with its dues different types of data to project trends. But also just to understand what you're doing but also to speak to different audiences into connect them to the different types of future. We are achieving because yes such developments would only be achieved by by pulling pulling all these actors together to drive in the same direction and previously or on this highly previously. But even in the we we tend to see cities at the walk soul a very small number of people but not necessarily for also planning also has to contend with the with the nature in which about development happens sometimes tends to not being -clusive so it's not necessarily inclusive growth and and planners don't just happen and when as people planners really being general but i'm trying to find to ease that planning as to be between sometimes conflicting or contradictory expectations of people and that becomes a very complex pace. That's unfortunate i mean. Yeah it's how do you mediate the bosses or the different needs of people that sometimes can actually be pulling defender action. Figures expecting similar cities to reach mega city status in the near future. Is it too late to implement effective city growth for those cities. And how can they adapt and we pay for what is to call from the discussion. On african abundance -sition we can see that. africa's growth or the growth of urban areas in africa is going to number one is going to drive most of the organization for the next few decades so that is an interesting point to to to to to sort of book. The fact that most of this growth will be happening within this region in the next two decades but also this growth is happening at an unprecedented rate so it is not like any growth. That has been seen anywhere else. I think i believe and badly this This growth is so. We normally focused on the mega mega-cities so africa has i think three megacities also by now which is a population of ten million about but this is projected to grow. But i'm more in in most significant growth is also going to happen in his. Call the small and medium-sized cities secondary towns which have a smaller population of two hundred and fifty to three hundred pounds and at the moment but these are going to grow at is multiple projects in almost five hundred of these cities exists within the continental ready and is going to drive most of this growth in future so when we think about kind of an issue we should just focus on the huge ten million class cities but on all these other small areas that are going to that already here but that are going to be the next few decades and how do we begin to generate visual. How described can be can be organized such that then drives more equitable -sition inclusive from abundance vision in the continent. So it's not too late. I believe because it's never too late and also because as much as it's a binding last is also a lot of changes happened. Globally that we can tap into sort of leapfrog some of the challenges that the other cities went through. And this is This is i think exciting types to be to be doing any kind of planning in any of these towns because we do have the opportunity to capitalize all the lesson than all the lessons that have been launched from the other cities around the world. We can launch from them and begin to adopt some of these lessons for us specific context. That is very unique. So then how can we. I think the question that you asked that question. I can turn back to you into my fellow colleagues and planners how can we adopt all the skills that we have land to create a to produce different types of cities in future for containment than exhibiting opportunity. Believe in it can twitch to see what to happen. We don't have all the answers to daily cannot say that this is what the future will look like a twenty again as we can we can be able to use it tools and technologies at the present to project the kinds of growth. We can anticipate and and using some of these tools to be able to mediate a sort of more equitable sustainable future for for the continent..

"Make them special us plans walk together with economic aspirations with of the government for its people or may be improving on what people are doing for their own economic development and begin to connect how shaping the space without trying to leaving you begin to see some more coordination coming up so that we just building settlements that are not necessarily useful for people economic development but beginning to integrate some of us solutions so that we can combine some ism goals but at the same time this is being made easier and easier with developments that you see in daytime in technology and in the digital space because previously some of these coordination was hydrogen. Had to do in system. I would again. But when things i'm all coordinated and when we have a more coordinated connected system will decision making of collecting information over analyzing problems and of making different decisions irrespective of which department you're working on. We begin to see some synchronize action. That i think would not have been achieved otherwise for some reason of being achieved in the past so for example the growth and expansion of gis technologies and phone over the digitization of special information and land use information so just sort of jets of drawing maps but actually being able to understand the way. Space is being organized. The space is changing. So the spacious being used right now with trans happening and how is changing in how does imply what the implications are for the future development obesity. So geospatial information just special intelligence and being able to look and i think that has really been revolutionary adjust because it's been able to digitize our understanding of space but because we can be able to now to over late different forms of information different forms of understanding space and the flows of action in flows of humans in the flows of developmental vestment. So i think not so much that your special intelligence for the tools that it provides but for the ability that can admission within the different stakeholders players space. And we can see that mostly. It's it's really affects them not affecting but it's really been able to connect so for example the city departments in the city planner city of the different city departments of the defend provincial. National government can begin to a parade or rock on the same hotel than the same. Just paschel information systems. Then we can begin to understand who is doing what way and then. How can we all work together to make sure that had driving pulling or pushing in the same direction. That's one thing so it combined in allowed different actions to to walk to get the same told this space only the language but at the same time it also allowance it shortens the the the the time it takes to communicate information to access information whether it's residents trying to so for example the digitalization of a land registry something very small. It seems but he's very essential because it shot in the process through which citizens can access information about different land parcels. What zoning rules today rights on individual property parcels on. But i'll say you're trying to register property Well before you'd have to go through paper systems in find different records of different hassles from different sites now. He begin simply digitized process in that. Really shots shelton's at process and mixing them relatively which we shouldn't Greater coordination increased efficiency. Hopefully would drive more coordinated action in future. Why isn't it in place in cities. What do you think is inhibiting optic. Yeah so so. The uptick has been slow. But it's happening snow. Limit conceit being picked up in different cities for example lumps of encouraging news. That has come from from kenya whereby vacancy. The ridges cheers. Finally being digitized in this as we can see from the articles in the data is pointing to sort of a new form of management. Ob landed for visual system. But on top of that the planning systems are some sort of behind you systems the property management systems but also hopefully the future bendable systems would be ended up pinned by a sort of collective digital register that everyone can point to and walk from in the uptick may be slow because of something to do with intrastructure or something to do with the capacity in the uptick in obviously when it comes to transitioning some of the systems. I think they could take time. But i think it also points to the lack of capacity in the technical know how to use some of these tools to drive the future change that we pointed to what new modern skews to town planners need to cross powerful policies that will shape african cities. For example john is knowledge detente analysis technical proficiency and skill of planning requires sort of the ability to be able to to to read and understand what is happening at the present to connect to the different pulses of goodness here from the past and this could be geopolitical socioeconomic forces and then to be able to sort of imagine a different future if it's a different future and then guide the different actors to achieve that teaches. So so it's it's it's it's a combined set of skills than require sort of technical technical capacity to understand what to do in how to toggle which neighbors to achieve which desired end go but also the ability to communicate this designed and go out to different players and that becomes very interesting because in the different skills you amid we need. This planners is the ability to be able to communicate to different actors with its political actors. They economic players in the financial sector and the real estate sector that builds the cities but also then the citizen the residents that even this city needs to understand what is happening and where we are going though as is rented and citizens of space so i think i think some of the technical skills of being able to communicate this sort of So most of the planning education and trainings on sort of Being able to theoretically understand at conceptualize what is happening in how we have gotten in be able to to present different scenarios where we can go in future so explore like explore different pathways of development future. And how do you communicate this To different players. So i see isis skills for example such as jets data analytics technical proficiency to be able to to present different scenarios to different audiences coming in boy more powerfully but also being encouraged and supported by the developments that are happening technology. So we've been seeing different types of tools.

"Partnership with one map. Visit them at one. Mac dot co say. Maria mine is my guest down fiji cities africa. She's a postdoctoral research at the university of bit vodkas round. She's a town planner and researcher on african cities with a particular focus on the role of policy in shaping urban few just in africa meriem. Welcome give us a brief introduction to your background and your academic interests of originally from nairobi kenya and now bit state joins us bikes african. So i'm trained as a town planner from the university of nairobi in kenya. And then i came here to join his bug so up in here for a few years on through expanding my knowledge and research on cities. That's my background. In academic interests really have been on not just town planning this of projects of city building and especially how public sector planning and policymaking trying to achieve beto aben species for for all who live in it. So it's it's a research policy. Research on urban growth in the different dynamics that shape to development especially in africa in my focused in has been the two cities are of lived. In which is narrow be enjoyment on the topic of preparing for future cities. What is getting growth. This proactive town planning in city management. In which countries have you seen success in africa internationally from the data on african abundance which is sort of projected to drive most of the evidence in the next few decades it it. It looks like we are going to have a lot of cities and mega-cities in africa. Presently we have maybe. Three mega-cities bug is projected to grow in the next few decades but they abandoned in africa is also being driven from the smaller towns in secondary cities that have a population of say quarter million and most of ny liberal most of the discussions are about how this growth to be managed and traditionally. We have this sort of formal proactive systems. Town planning that attempt to prepare setup the rules of about how it is to grow before the city's urbanites but what you've been observing boy especially in african towns and cities more organic formal growth and development that is known necessarily planned which then creates this economy. Were to sit out for more planned a good city or ideal city and informal and planned by the to need to correct and i think what we can begin to look at his visceral ganic formal Growth and abundance is really what has driven most of the expansion of the cities in africa. And how do we use the formal tools that are supposed to prepare these spaces twin state adopts the cities that we have now so that we can have a more equitable accessible or organized over abundance -sition growth because as much as the organic is what we see it's not necessarily the most ideal and there are a lot of challenges this Patterns of growth. Come with that need to be addressed by the formal systems of planning so the question is how do how do we use a formal tools and systems to adopt this sort of less organized organics forms to create a sort of abundance space that is equitable especially and accessible to all residents. I wouldn't want to point to any city at the moment. But i do think that this is a conversation that will be having ball across african cities and in terms of nissan's sharing. Would you say organic growth is a good idea for african countries and cities and way has been the standard practice in africa. The organic city. That appears in plan to disorganized. Israeli something that has been pulled together by the energy of households and following just trying to get a foothold in the city. And when you try to transition these when you try to point that sort of by the bunnies issue that needs correcting then the systems through which we try to intervene. Sometimes end up disrupting the lives of civilians. We are trying to To help so pointing to it. As a good or bad. I think would be a contested idea. Something that we can continue to think about. But what's what maybe a more useful question is. How do we the picture that this'll organic forms of organization i incorporated into what we consider to be the rest of the of a functional plan efficient city that we're trying to plan for what happens to town planning policies who informs them. We implements them. Why policies always reach the goals in wives the need for improved policies. So in my my research on policy implementation we really find that the act of implementation requires the coordinated actions of remaining departments in institutions working together. So and this is one of the conceptions. We have with consider when when we talk about plans. Obscenely policies are not being achieved so that policy implementation gap that is normally very common literature and india analyses in discussion general. But when you come to really at park how policies a demented you find that for example something as simple as upgrading it fall settlement or improving a neighborhood that has not been provided with services requires the coordination of private sector public sector the channeling by budgets and resources to make sure that the plans that we make what paper can be made in a few years yeah in a few decades without necessarily disrupting the lives of the residents who repair and policy then becomes less about what to put on paper in more about how the different agencies are expected to gabba something walk together to make sure that this is achieved in the end so yeah it turns out to be more of a coordination problem or coordination glitch across the different departments are policies. Take very long to implement and things change so it's coordination but also how do you adjust you. Your goals in uc stems in means of implementation as you try to drive towards that agenda the on challenges while these things that no-one facility management success not in place for instance data collection existed technology lack of digital property registers silos and governments and funding and much. More so yeah narrowing it down again. Just to to built involvement typing. We estimate so that coordination problem or the sort silo based structure that we have sort of organized most of most government agencies. Not just here but across across the world. And how do you begin to breakdown. The silence to walk together in an integrated fashion for delivery from plans of projects of strategies. We have been seeing a lot of headway when it comes to for example the integrated planning that we have been seeing for example here but also the opening up different beta systems or technologies that i use within such department for example to understand how things are achieved but new begin to coordinate for example to look at On the land use which is like two of the two big things not well-coordinated land use planning and development and economic strategies or uplifting a iria residential space so if you begin to.
