An Expert's Guide To Curly Hair

"Welcome to. I'm sharon hunt and this week's look dropped by. Guest is the incredible ruby aka the guru of curly and afro hair. Ruby is originally from zimbabwe but nowadays. She calls australia home. The originally self-taught stylist fell into hairdressing by accident. After witnessing friends and families struggle to find someone that understood this strands so she wound up doing it herself in her lounge room eventually she took up an apprenticeship began stalling out of multiple salons before finally opening up her own place. Rooming co in two thousand four room. Be thanks for dropping by. Thanks so much for having me sharing now. When i was a kid i distinctly remember being told if you ate all your crusts. Yo hey would go curly and i really badly wanted. Kelly has a you better believe i was gobbling down the crofton. I of course realize it was an old wives tale. That parents just tell you to eight year food. But i have to say. It's not the only myth that i've come across when it comes to curly hair. So why do you think there are. So many misconceptions about kohl's. I think something is misunderstood. There's a desire to want to make it a lot more palatable to each individual like answer for that very reason people come up with their own anecdotes around what this complex appendage actually is so people come up with so many things now yes i mean you told your cross for me. It was like eat your vegetables. And your hair is going to be straighter. You know what i mean like. Oh my gosh eating those so yeah. I think it's just because people really want to understand something that is complex and so yet this is where a lot of myths have come along and i hear them all the time. I've got lots of them to ask you about. Oh let's go. I guess to start with with. Kelly has to understand that. There's not just one type of co run us through just as an overview the different types of kohl's because you can tell by looking at someone calls not the same to the next. So why should you treat them the same one colleague on one hundred percent. So there's three curl types wavy curly in africa's how we sort of break down but then when you're looking at the typing system you've got type two which is wavy and that's lusa curls and there's three subcategories of that you've got to a to b to c and two c would be the tightest within that range and then you've got type three which is curly and within that again. Abc and c. And seeping tighter and then same thing for africa harrah's well after or coyly hair. Because i guess everyone who has coyly hair has an effort background. He is another curly myth. I've come across curly hair. Shampoos a marketing hype and normal shampoos worked. Fine let's start right there fact or fiction fact. They all marketing hive. Well okay no no no let me put it this way curly hair. People shouldn't shampoo their hair. That's a myth. Okay great stafa. Let's start there because that's actually. What's more commonly said trump who your hair. I've heard condition as well really. Yeah stop it. Maybe straight hair. How should you be carrying the curly hair. When it comes to washing its really simple. One of the things that i say to my clients often is you have to get rid of straight hair tendencies right. And how do you do that. It's just simplifying it. And which is part of what we do. We try and simplify everything for our clients. Because if you don't do that it's as though you're eating soup of the fork and that's gonna be very frustrating. And so how do you shampoo we take people through this whole process and it's like pretty much. Get the right shampoo first of all what you need to have the right product. Because not all sham periods would then be the same. Most shampoos actually stripped your hair. Which is why in some way. Yes don't shampoo your hair. I get with people. Come with that myth because it doesn't leave your hair as hydrated but then when you've got shampoo that is specifically designed for curly hair. It's supposed to cleanse but also hydrate to leave your hair feeling very moisturised. Soft supple and clean as well without streaky. Feel that you get when you get a deep cleansing shampoo

FDA says Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine meets requirements for emergency use authorization

"To get a third Corona virus vaccine and not a day too soon as current vaccine supplies are short. This morning, the FDA the Food and Drug Administration released its evaluation of an application from Johnson and Johnson for emergency organization for its vaccine. NPR's science correspondent Joe Palka is following all this and joins us this morning. Hi, Joe. Morning, Rachel. How are you? I'm doing well. We have been here before. We have had this conversation before and every time it's good news. What does the FDA say about this vaccine? Yeah, it is. It's pretty good news day. The data come from three countries, the U. S. South Africa and Brazil. These are big studies, some 40,000 volunteers who had no evidence of having been infected with covert before joining the study. They got a single shot of the vaccine, and then they look to see who got sick and who didn't and the efficacy after 14 and 28 days was close to 66%, so that's preventing moderate disease. And after 28 days there was I'm sorry, 85%. There were no serious covert cases and no vaccine related deaths in that group. So 66. I'm sorry. Covert related covered related deaths, right, so 66% advocacy for moderate to severe disease, So it's not Is good at preventing covert as the other two Madonna and Fizer, But we have come to understand that even 66% is still very good, right? Yeah, that's true. And I think I think a bit of perspective would be called for here. I mean, at first, everybody would have been ecstatic to get 66% because they were hoping to get at least 50%. So first of all, this is good. Second of all, the numbers for preventing serious disease and death are very encouraging This 85% Efficacy and third. The nature of the pandemic is changing new variants of popped up, and they have popped up since Visor Madonna were tested, so we don't know how well those vaccines will work against the new variants. And, in fact, part of this study was done in South Africa, where there's a new and very concerning very antithesis come up, and the vaccine seem to do relatively well there, so that's a good thing to consider. Yeah. So the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is also just one shot, right? Yes, And we've talked a lot about the logistical problems of getting this vaccine or getting any vaccine. Two people, and it's certainly more complicated when you need special freezers and what have you and it's also more complicated when you have toe have people come back for a second shot. So having a single dose vaccine that doesn't require extraordinary refrigeration eyes a very good thing. So after this, and the FDA still has to make a final decision, right? Yes, And the way it works is that the FDA has said Look, we're going to get advice from this independent committee that we have a standing committee that reviews such things and we will wait to make any decision before until we hear from them. The whole idea's T reassure people that it's not just the FDA saying, Go ahead with this. It's FDA plus Independent advisers who are taking a hard look at this or careful Look at this. And the this committee meets on Friday and you could have an approval the day after. You don't know that's about how the timing of the last vaccines, so I nodded to this in the intro, But vaccines have been in short supply. I mean, winter storms have made delivery worse. How many doses of vaccine does Johnson and Johnson have ready right now? Well, they're talking about four million, I think is about the number some few million's anyway to begin with. But they've promised that by the end of June, they will have 100 million ready and remember, that's 100 million doses. That can be used in 100. Million people. So you as he said, We don't need to come back for the second does one dose will do it? Good news, NPR's science correspondent Joe Palka. Thank you, Joe. You're welcome.

The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers

"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes

Australian PM is vaccinated as rollout begins

"Today is the day that vaccination start to roll out across australia but we got a little preview of that yesterday with the with the prime minister and world war two survivor and a couple of other people getting the vaccine yesterday. Yes they go to i. Those of the pfizer vaccine which also followed a day on saturday of anti xers demonstrating and being talked to list in one city by pete evans. Some people criticizing the prime minister. Full so-called jumping the queue to get the vaccine before anyone else does but maybe leading by example. I just don't think you can criticize our leaders for having the it's not as if whole parliament skating it. It's really just showing their confidence in the vaccine. I think it's really important. Thing down the track. You'll see the health minister leader of the opposition getting the astra vaccine or the chief medical officer. Getting the astra vaccine to show that the our leaders are. You do have trust in this. And do you do believe in science. And i mean it's like laser immune to getting the virus either. Pay dutton got covid early. Jia by tribe and you you want your leadership cupboard and there's tens of thousands of accents that are gonna roll at in just the next couple of weeks. So i suppose people sort of is on the horizon going cool vaccine zahia. That's a really big comfort in a time of pandemic. When do we start to see things going back to normal. That's the critical question. And it depends what you call going back to normal because in most parts of australia. Things are pretty normal. We've got very little if any covid. Nineteen virus around in australia and new south wales is going weeks so has so have other jurisdictions so available around so we're back to normal internally back to normal means opening the borders having international travellers and tourists coming to australia us being able to go overseas listening. You'll becoming part of the world again. I think that's what we mean by becoming not becoming normal and covered that on tonight's Seven thirty program by talking to a mortar spoke to chris. Murray who heads the institute for health metrics and evaluation and he's of the he runs one of the world's leading modeling groups and covered on the health report back in november. He predicted the dr the global downturn in cases of covid nineteen that. We're seeing now he. He predicted almost to the week and his was. That was going to be nothing to do with. Thanks to nation and everything to do with season. -ality that really. It would have itself out in terms of the winter surge in covid nineteen. Because it's so seasonal. So i decided to go back to him. Seen other vaccinations going out. What what what's your modeling moving forward and it was quite sobering. He says he's not as bullish. Nah as he was back in november the variables that he's taking into consideration people's behavior. Now remember we're talking about the northern hemisphere not stralia new zealand but of almost no virus. And we've got close borders visit. If people's behavior goes back to normal before you get down to very low levels of virus transmission then you. He believes that you could. Well see a third wave evolving at the end of the northern summer. Pretty much like you saw in in twenty twenty and what could make that. Which is the second variable that he's worried about our vaccine resistant. Very variants of the virus escaped the vaccine and that they could really muddle the muddy the water considerably. How does that fit with other data that seeing coming out saying that the vaccines are reducing transmission in places like i and that's a place where the at least the uk variant is very prevalent on the uk very sensitive to the vaccine it's african variant and other variants than meyer is including the brazilian variant. We're not much is known. And you'll remember that. We spoke some days ago. About the brazilian city minnows. Seventy six percent of people had been infected with the virus. There were only five hundred admissions to hospital in the beginning of december beginning of january first nineteen days of january. Three thousand five hundred hospitalizations in so vaccine trials a very high percentage of people where had had covid nineteen when they were into the trial and in the placebo group they got reinfected with the south african variant so these vaccine escape variants are really worrying in terms of reinfection. Saw the vaccine does is turns covered one thousand nine hundred common core. Which is why. I'm gonna take the astra and we're five. We'll take whatever is given to me. Because i don't want to die of covid. Nineteen but if what we are looking for an opening of the borders and international normalization at least in australia. According to chris murray. We've made the wrong bet with the astro vaccine. He says you really do need to be immunizing with pfizer or madeira. Or perhaps even novak so that still to be proved in the real world. We're much higher. Degrees of efficacy and reduction in transmission and remember the other issue reduction in transmission is that these new variants emerge in countries. Where there's a lot of spread where the virus is multiplying and replicating all the time. And that's where these new variants are being thrown off. They won't be thrown off in austria. Where there's no virus around they'll be thrown off in low income countries like sight words middle income countries like south africa. They'll be thrown off in the united states in britain and other places if the virus keeps on circulating. So what we've got to do is get to very high levels of immunization very very quickly with highly effective vaccines and hope that that minimizes these of virus. Which is resistant to the vaccines. And then what we gotta do. And it's got to be done right now actually getting vaccines op through visor. Moderna novak's which are designed to cope with the resistant variants. That are around. Perhaps the brazilian one certainly the south african one and within a few months star boosting with them. This is really demoralizing. When with sort of on the cusp of vaccine. Roll out of here in australia woman. And if i'm just an average person sitting at home listening to corona 'cause what should i take away from these. Iud urging people from getting vaccine that they often no. Because i think it's really important that we all get covered so that shoots so first of all we're going to have a layer of protection. The international evidence is increasingly by the pfizer vaccine prevents transmission. So that means with hotel. Workers bar workers being immunized and hopefully their families to and that's a really important part of the story. We are creating a ring of confidence around the hotel borders. We've also got to institute with the pfizer vaccine. Not the astros vaccine ring vaccination around outbreaks so that we are controlling this any outbreaks there and everybody else immunized with the astra vaccine so that we are turns it into the common colds. We create a very safe situation. The problem is wayne. Do we open up to international travel and windy relax on hotel quarantine and with a country. That's largely covered with the extra astro vaccine. Which is not very effective somewhere doggy. Effective at all against the south african variant certainly in terms of transmission. Then it becomes a very nerve wracking decision to make. So that's why we've got to be planning in twenty twenty one for a booster. Does of vaccine resistant covid nineteen. That's actually a question that we had from john who's in australia who leaves in the us. And he's basically asking now. The australian vaccination program is rolling out. Do we expect. When do we expect the quarantine might be lifted. And what kind of factors go into that decision making so you could be quite cool about it if you think that we are all. We've turned effectively. Destroyed population susceptibility to covid nineteen into the common cold. And it does look as though the it's pretty effective at doing that with you're talking about african variant or indeed other variants. So we're pretty protected so you could say well maybe sooner rather than later but you know. It's just a very nerve wracking theme because we variants from all over the world and we are not donating vaccine to low-income countries. At the rate which will get van covered quickly enough and they will be throwing off variants and those variance will come to look at hiv hiv started around contrast saw in zaire and then you tens of millions of people have been infected with. Its an died. It doesn't matter where these variants arise from. They will spread to other parts of the world. So we've got to get the globe immunized as quickly as possible otherwise. It's very hard to relax just when you thought you had this thing pinned down at escapes again. Norman so so becomes really does become a bit like flu where the first vaccination does protect us to very significant extinct in terms of dying and serious disease. That's why i'm lining up. For whatever vaccine i get and i would urge other people to do the same. But it means that the government has got to not be complacent about this any shape or form and has to star ordering what's called multi vaillant vaccines are trying to ranging them now so that by spring summer of this year. We're getting boosting booster shots with multi valent vaccines that will covers against the current range of resistant. Variants around the world and that swing will open up borders.

Deputy Political Editor of the Spectator, Katy Balls, Discusses Where the U.K. Stands on COVID-19 Vaccine Administration

"Yes and katie. Boris johnson is trying to lead the way on this discussion. What does the u k position. Severe macron is Five percent of the current vaccine intake. I think that the strong sense she got from ministers involved with this is that they don't want to give away vaccines until they have been able to offer a vaccine not just to the most vulnerable. But ideally everyone in the country and tens of the adult population. And i think this goes to a desire by the uk to almost tried. Reach head mean free. Immunization see something happening in israel. I think it's probably easier said than done. And even though we all very lucky to be high vaccine uptake country if you looked is rather as where we could be going the beginning to see slightly when for example at vaccines fatigue characters. I think the age group you go. The uptake still very good uptake. But no expansion to see the level you get say eight year olds amongst thirty roads. Now i think that when it comes to giving away vaccines. Dj very much does want to do that. And i think that they can see that. You can emerge as a global player by coming gossip benevolent as james touch and actually right near copies. Various governments have ready. Go ahead startled that. As to whether i think there is still some debate to be had because there has been idea at the senate. Mtv countries and food scheme at has been talked about the idea of countries in africa. And beyond. But i think that that has also been to airmax. Mp's such as if the public violence is very far behind the uk. Actually as close allies neighbor. We should be stepping in there now. I think what might make this decision. Earlier is ultimately what is the desire what is demand for some of the vaccines. The uk has given hearing more reports of various european countries. Saying they don't want the oxford vaccine may be actually some the things he geeky has to offer an received. But i do you think the senses that this will stop being a problem soon.

Boris Johnson to pledge surplus COVID-19 vaccine to poorer countries at G7

"British prime minister will urge other wealthy nations to donate their surplus covert. Vaccines to less well-off countries. A virtual meeting of the g seven johnson will urge more money to be given to kovacs. The un initiative aimed at making sure global distribution of vaccines is done fairly. His call comes after accusations that nations who can afford it have been stockpiling for more doses than they actually need which joining me as a political reporter monocle. Twenty four regular events in mckinney. Good morning many demoting. What is boris. Johnson expected to say at the g seven this the first time that g seven has met since april twenty twenty s head of physical meeting in cohen will in gene and the prime minister. Getting to try and kind of lift the is above the horizon. He's going to say that between them. The g seven countries have ordered about a billion surplus vaccines and they need to make sure that they get these out through the kovacs scheme which will distribute them around the well to poorer nations in order to stop the creation and spread of new variants. The kinds of which that we've seen coming out of a particularly south africa and brazil. Which a have these variants which seemed to have some kind of Resistance to the current stock of vaccines. So he's going to be encouraging them that it's in all of their benefit to get those supplies out. This is an interesting move. Boris johnson because up until now there were seeming presidency of the g seven. But boris johnson hasn't really shown his face as a world statesman yet. This is his first real show outing. Yesterday as prime minister being about eighteen months hasn't because of the crisis brexit hundred have real kind of trips around the world going to these kind of big conferences. It's being accident entitled focused. So it'll be interesting to see how he deals with us. We have had an experience with him as foreign secretary before way either.

"It's great to have you on the program again. This extraordinary book. And i want to start here. I want to start in two thousand six because you talk in the book about having an almost eureka moment in terms of realization and. I think that there's still some people in this country that haven't had that realization. I wanted to understand what brought you to this place in two thousand funded. The gates foundation and started traveling to africa in seen only the lack of electricity but how the weather is getting tougher for the farmers there and that led me to learn about climate. I haven't spent time on it. But i was kind of horrified to learn that over time. It's just going to get worse. And worse. and the sources of the missions are are very very broad and so that in a brought me in to think about actually do a ted talk in two thousand ten five years before. I did the pandemic talk in the book. You warn that. The economic damage caused by climate change will likely be as bad as having a covert sized pandemic every decade. What do you think the role of business should be in solving this business you know. Businesses are paid to think ahead and They consumers will be looking at the carbon footprint of the companies. They buy from They will be looking for business to be part of the dialogue about shifting these systems around and so climate climate is big the younger generation. I think their energy already very high. But i see that going up Even in a bipartisan way and so measuring Footprint being open about that and being willing to devote resources to getting those numbers down over time i think no matter what business you're in that that will deserve a lot of attention but can the problem be solved if big businesses and microsoft and apple and google and others have have announced very ambitious plans. But they are all idiosyncratic mean. They're doing it on their own. Can it work. Everybody's doing it on their own or does it effectively require regulation and laws over time.

How France can avoid a “forever war” in the Sahel

"In twenty thirteen fronts sent soldiers to marley to stop jihadist advance seven years later and more than five thousand troops are still there in the region and despite their intervention twenty twenty was the deadliest year since the crisis began in the region known as a suhel avast sweep of land south of the sahara. So what is going wrong with the strategy of the so-called g five the group of five suhel countries became a facile. Mali mauritania initia- and chad. And of course a fronts will tell us more. I'm joined by the journalist and researcher in west africa and the sahel region. Pull me good morning pool. Good to have you with us. Good morning just explained to us how we've got to this state of did crisis what i think. We have to distinguish two things back in two thousand thirteen The jihad is already taken over the north of mali and they were launching a fresh push southwards and they had got down as far as the capital. Bamako that would have threatened security instability right across africa so the initial french intervention which was actually sent by Emmanuel macron predecessor. Phosphor alone which remember him that that may give you a sense of how far back in time. This was that was an almost conventional military intervention and it ended the jihadist the towns across the mouth of molly and remove that immediate threat but as so often in these situations a conventional conflict benefit of fragmented into more widespread terrorism localized attacks and some general instability. And that is much much harder to tackle. And you can't do it just with military means and so there's been a huge effort over really substantial seven years now as you mentioned to try and bring stability to the region but it's it's particularly difficult because you don't just have a ideology ideological jihadism if you're like fighting a terrorist war against a perceived international influence against the secular nature nature of these west african states. But you also have That mixed up with all sorts of local tensions and grievances For example between groups who depend on animal hooding and people who have commas and this is in this region the suhel which is just south of the sahara so it subjected to climate change water land grazing or in short supply. Population is rising rapidly. But the jobs aren't there to keep pace so you've got all her social and economic factors as well and that that's what's made it such a difficult challenge to bring this crisis under control but probably the most intense. The most dangerous situation was in the second. Half of twenty and nineteen when an armed group in eastern mali cooled islamic group in the greatest sahara pledging affiliation to die ish in the middle east staged a series of really very very bloody attack saw malia ninja army garrisons and the french also suffered heavy losses. And after that in january of last year there was a sort of strategic rethinking if you like and the decision to focus the military effort on them and to try and get up a stronger development have heard an peacemaking effort in other parts of the region sent. We have seen some progress since then

"Today into being a lady who's pretty well known here in south africa. Her name is maryanne sheera now. Maryanne is a woman before had time. She wrote a book called the natural way more than twenty years ago. An only now is the way of life. She advocates going mainstream on apart from being an author. Marianne is a motivational speaker. And she runs a very successful pekan restaurant as well as running natural health programs. I'll begin by asking maryanne satele to bit about herself. I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes. It was just all like niggly stuff that was affecting our relationships and was affecting the way we functioned from day to day. And i have always been interested in the human body i prob- i might have become a doctor. But i'm i'm glad i didn't because it made me look for answers and other places so i was fascinated with the human body studied physiology anatomy and chemistry in the sciences and i was fascinated with the how the human body worked. So we're not. We started having these problems and we were being treated traditional medical way with anti anti-inflammatories and antihistamines for a head allergic dermatitis. On my hands and the kids with antibiotics just didn't make any sense because nobody actually got well. all it doesn't seem to do is suppress symptoms. And then they'd come back two weeks later. I saw the athol up. Gotta find answers. This was long. Before the era of google that really dates meet And just go and do a search on google. And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else. Give the small lobe to somebody else in the big global grow and then you've donated your smaller that logo groesbeck like this is the most amazing thing and yet when it comes to lever cancer you told is no cure for it. You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states.

"What practical strategies can africa implements thrive in the post pandemic world and all the any silver linings for the continent. Yes so. I think what this pandemic is done exposed. That the the old ways of doing things Were in many cases not fit for purpose. We've had to kind of come up with more creative more innovative and more dynamic approaches to doing things. I think one of the one of the concepts. That that i came up with along with bronwyn williams was The concept of this five economy. Which i think africa needs to look at to to to come out not only surviving but also to be successful Not in a very very brief Summary we've identified kind of five g economic as the blue economy which deals with oceans tourism maritime issues Which we believe is underexploited. Africa has about forty thousand kilometers of coast. Coastline eight island coastal states. And this is something that i think can be really catalyzed. Can help in terms of employment can help in terms of energy security And it's untapped so number. One is the blue economy. The next quite logically is the green economy. Where you know this is something that can address africa's issues around food security around renewable energy Again significant potential Underdeveloped agricultural potential. has a huge potential employment impact as well and i think focusing on agriculture reprocessing using technology and integrating this into into the african continental free-trade agreement can can lead to significant Positive developments in africa. I think the the next one is the is the pupil economy which not many people actually know about. This is the cultural economy. Which globally represents two trillion dollars economy If we look at the examples of some of the other countries in the world In japan and south korea which which exports k pop as a a a a cultural product. I think there's significant potential here. And we're already seeing through the likes of trevor noah after the likes of bernard boy through the jerusalem challenge through various kind of avenues that There is an appetite for african content african cultural content. And i think developing these value chains which allow us to monetize. These will be. We'll be ready important particularly because this is the potential to foster creative industries foster innovation and to young people. So that's the economy moving on. I think the the to others which i think are really important to flag white economy obviously with reference to do at coffee but this is the digital economy and we're seeing significant progress in silicon savannah will we're seeing You know a huge innovation coming through to adopt to the fourth industrial revolution. And the hope is that the pandemic rates that that trend last of the five committees the grey economy which is the the informal economy..

"Your given the the acute development needs and the needs to spend on health care on education To to catalyze the demographic dividend that the continent has this really could be a massive setback if these very limited resources already Strained and we get a series of defaults. So for me. That's the big thing. That keeps me up at night. And i think the continent now has to navigate the three ds which is diseased debts and dysfunction. Hopefully we can start doing that quite soon. I know these predictions that by twenty one hundred. Eight of the largest cities will be in africa and they talking about mega cities with fifty million people city. What are your views on that. How do we get the you know. The the very unique situation. That africa finds itself in is that it needs to industrialize. But it needs to industrialize undo very unique sets of circumstances so one is being asked to industrializing democratize similar simultaneously. But also this is happening.
