How the Biden-Harris ticket will impact the 2020 race

"Joe Biden's choice of Camilla Harris as his running mate is being met with excitement and hope from many women in and around Sacramento. KP CASE Joe Michaels joins us Live in studio with more Oh Bill Bynes decision to add California's junior senator to the 2020 Democratic ticket brings a smile to the face of the only woman currently sitting on Sacramento City Council Councilwoman Anjali Gash be calling the choice, exciting seeing yourself reflected in leaders. Is just so empowering, not just for young people, but for all people. Women have never seen themselves in the Oval Office. In the White House. Never so to see a woman actually get to vice president of the United States of America would tell women and girls everywhere that it is possible and it is possible in our lifetime. Kendra Montgomery Block of the Sierra Health Foundation, is pleased to finally see an African American woman chosen as the running mate of a major party's presidential candidate as a black woman, how we are constantly looked upon as the backbone of the entire country, and in doing so So making sure that you have not only just a seat at the table, but a voice at the table means a lot in our democracy, and Camilla represents that voice, not only for us before the people Montgomery Clark believes Harris will also serve as a rule model for young African American girls. You always want to be able to look at folks and say, Hey, that's a path that I could take two And now that's incredibly connected to black women, Indian women and two women of color that we can take this path that we can build strong families, built strong education connections and then be able to take on top leadership role in this country. Councilwoman Ashby says Harris is well prepared for the opportunity. This isn't choosing a woman for the sake of choosing a woman. He was a candidate for the presidency herself. She's been the senator for California. She's been attorney general. She's been a D E A. There's no doubt that she's qualified to do this job. Ashby understands the possibility that Harris could be polarizing and doesn't out W naysayers were choosing the next president and vice president, United States of America. We get to look at them through a critical leads, but we need to look at them through balanced lenses, and that is what the people of this country are asking for. So many ways through protests through support of candidates. The things that you're hearing is a nation that just wants equity in its decision making. They want to see women and men have equal opportunity they want to see people of every race have equal opportunity. When you look at American history, it's been a long time in coming. From the women's suffrage movement that ultimately gave women the right to vote 100 years ago this month of the civil rights movement aimed at ending racial discrimination to 2020 when an African American woman now stands as the running mate of a major party's presidential candidate,

Harris shared a special relationship with job Eden's son, Beau Biden. They both served alongside each other is as attorneys general in their home states and developed a close relationship from that.

Ah Harris makes history is the first African American woman and the first American of Indian descent to be nominated on a major party's presidential ticket.

Joe Biden Picks Kamala Harris as His Running Mate

"Much of a surprise this is to everyone. Some people seem surprised Other people like Well Yeah, No. Duh. But Joe Biden announcing yesterday his running mate will be Kamala Harris Thie. Senator from California, and Biden did say early on that he would pick a woman as his running mate, and Harris now makes history as the first ever black woman. To run for vice president on a major party ticket. Her mother is from India. Her father is from Jamaica. So some people are saying she can't call herself African American, but I think she certainly can call herself Black Charlie read and we'll start with you. Are you surprised by the pick? And what do you think about the pick? No, I wasn't surprised because this her name had been floated quite a bit in recent weeks, and she had kind of gone into a little bit of a hibernation for 72 hours or so. Which is it? Something that vice presidential candidates who are really close to it do so they can avoid, you know, last minute questions and all that. And you know, she certainly has a wonderful story as she is the daughter of immigrants, and she Has became a U. S. Senator, for goodness sake, and I don't want to diminish anything about her at all. But I don't think that her role is that important because I think it's all basically whether or not you like Donald Trump in 2020 I think he's the big factor there. I'm not going to say that Joe Biden could've picked Attila the Hun and one but right now, I think it's pretty much Donald Trump or not, and the vice presidential candidates are not that important. They never really are, in my view, and when you think about it Issue. Let's say Is she going to bring people of color to the ticket? Well, I think many people of color, especially African Americans were going to vote for Joe Biden anyway, so I think it's a solid choice in the sense that she As a lot of energy, probably a lot more energy than Joe Biden. Really, and she's She's very good on her feet. She's got a few issues that could dog her. We'll see. But overall salad picked by Joe Biden.

Conventional wisdom is the Biden campaign wanted a V P who would represent the future of the party and be a minimal target. President Trump.

Aardvarks are Ailing Amidst Heat and Drought

"The aardvark is a rare animal alphabetically at least whereas the first creature listed in English language dictionaries. And they're usually rarely seen in their African home. But. That's because they're not terminal solitary and live in underground burrows. They're actually fairly common at in recent years there being seen more frequently while that may be fortunate for tourists and wildlife enthusiasts. It's not really good news for the vox themselves. Southern Africa is becoming gradually hotter and dry due to climate change, which is occurring the more rapidly than other parts of the world and I therefore chose to dedicate my PhD. To investigating how climate change affects the artifacts in the hottest and driest habitats in Africa, in which they occur, which is the Hari semi-desert Nora vire from south, Africa's University of the voters Ronde. For more than three years she and her team the activities of a dozen aardvarks in the Kalahari via tiny tracking units they implanted in the animals. aardvarks generally sleep during the heat of the day and emerge during the cooler nighttime hours to eat and termites. But vire found that during a drought, they were likely to be active during the day. The Kalahari is always aerated, but one summer lack of rain caused a big vegetation dial off. And terms disappeared, which made the aardvarks go hungry usually the period of the year during which very little food is available. It's winter. So if you come up during winter, day it's nice and. Wall mish and not too hot during the cold dry winter. A hungry aardvark has trouble regulating body temperature. Stay warm. The survival strategy they evolved is to become more active during the day when it's warmer outside. But virus aardvarks were going hungry during the summer. Their strategy of being active during the day, which is a smart move during the winter became a trap. During the summer they face hunger, heat, stress, and dehydration. The findings are in the journal Frontiers Physiology these energy saving mechanisms that aren't chuck showed not always enough for them to save energy during droughts and several artifacts of our study. Also other artefacts died climate change is expected to bring more frequent droughts and heat waves. So the Kalahari and aardvarks might not be able to cope aardvarks are ecosystem engineers. Their burrows are used by war hogs, porcupines, Muir. Cats, and even by endangered pangolins as shelter from heat and Colt. If aardvarks can't survive a hotter Drier Kalahari Of it mean for the rest of their ecological community. Thanks for the minute

So perhaps you could set the record straight firstly in what context did you say the words Jewish people are among? The cleverest in the world. It came up in conversation. About Physics I've always an interest since I was a boy in astrophysics. because. I couldn't believe that one hundred years ago almost. Albert Einstein we're talking about such abstract subjects as light being affected by gravity. And he works out the speed of light, which was a phenomenal thing to do in the nineteen twenties. How did this man come to realizations about what actually control the will then what does control the world? And the whole universe that we live in? So. My interest was based on this philosophy. On physics. And when the lady Mico sleater told me that she was a qualified physicist and she was American. It was almost involuntary question for me to Oscar. She was Jewish and again, this was a private lunch at a private lynch over Cup of coffee. Now, it was also reported to say that you said that black men on the privileged needle help that they can get. Yes. I did say that. Because I've worked all over the world of work in Africa I worked in South Africa Mozambique worked in North Africa. And I realized that a lot of people in Africa are culturally disadvantaged. Cheaper to anybody else. But. The coach or they grow up in doesn't give them the advantages that we have in the West. And therefore, I was always prepared to give them extra help. In addition to this, it was reported in the Times by Phillips that you told Dr Burner. Most Nigerians did not have it in their DNA to be engineers. Is this true? Absolutely not true. This was one of the spiteful comments made by my course. Lita. In a fifth of of temper to get me set knowing. It would certainly get me ten. She also alleged other city things.

The Most Dangerous Fruit in America

"Start our watermelon adventure, we called one of the world's great watermelon. Harry Paris he has worked on watermelon science per years as part of Israel's agricultural research. Service. Well, I think the first thing that comes to the first two syllables water right? This is a true rich table. which has a lot of water and which actually probably the first use by people of this particular natural products. Was To quench thirst I've spent summers in Israel, and it is basically watermelon paradise but that's not actually were Harry I fell in love with a watermelon it all started when his dad grew watermelons in the backyard in their home in Brooklyn in the nineteen sixties then Harry gave watermelon farming himself fifteen years old and there was a new variety called Crimson sweets that came out and plans at a few seats in the garden and Lo and behold by the fall we got one nice big sweet high quality watermelon fruit. That we grew in the backyard in Brooklyn and from then on I was just hoped. Harry was well ahead of the local war hipster curve in Brooklyn but the watermelon is neither from Brooklyn nor from Israel, in fact, its origins are a little bit of a mystery. One of the big headlines was back in the mid nineteenth century when the British explorer David Livingstone went to the southern African deserts and low and behold. It was the year in which there was more rain than average and he found a large areas just covered with wild watermelons. He's wild watermelons were hard but does the name says have water say to pound them and so on and so forth but you could squeeze the water out of them David Livingston was searching for the source of the Nile. But apparently, he was also as a side hustle looking for other sources like the source of our sweet watermelons and people thought he'd founded the wild ancestor but Livingston was wrong about the source of the Nile and as it turns out now. We know he was wrong about those wild watermelons to now that scientists can examine the DNA of melons. They found that the Kalahari desert wild melon that Livingston came upon is not the ancestor of our sweet watermelon. But DNA is just one of the tools that scientists are using to try to figure out where and when the watermelon was domesticated, you can't just use one approach. You have to use an archaeology approach you have to use clients science you have to use. Linguistics you have to go into literature some of it'll some of an ancient. And even more than that. Of course, with the latest that we know genetics and genome can assist us first of all the plant Science Livingston was at least on the right continent because there are wild watermelons of various different species all over. Africa. So the wild relatives watermelon their fruits are smaller and rounder not elongate. They have often perfectly round it small fruits the outside looks like a watermelon like little, green and white. But inside they all have this extremely bitter and usually white. Whitish pulpits azan Renner is a professor of biology at the University of Munich and she's another one of the world's watermelon expert Suzanne's as you could boil these Super Beta watermelons for jam or you could use them medicinally as kind of a purge to clean out your insides. Basically, the wild watermelon wasn't a tasty thing to eat raw at all. So where the desert watermelon comes from, there are two things that have to happen to these bitter wild melons to turn them into the watermelons. We love today to specific genetic mutations. The first one is a mutation. That switches off the production of bitchy chemicals and so this mutation occurs in nature as bad for the plan because the plant of course has this bitterness to defend itself not eaten so that the fruits would not be yeah for the plan is better to lose the bitterness but for us, it's good and we can only imagine that native people every once in a while tried one of these melons maybe for what may be hoping for something to chew on and found some that wasn't bitter Suzanne's scientists know what that mutation is and how to find it in. A melon they just to look and the second mutation is the one that turned it red inside rather than white the red colors also well understood this is well studied and it's a completely different set of teens. This is and other scientists know exactly which two mutations they're looking for. Those mutations aren't common and wild melon. So when did they happen? When were watermelons domesticated Harry says the place to look for those clues is archaeology in ancient Egyptian tombs. Archaeologists have found paintings of whole watermelons on a platter there oblong and striped watermelons today not round like the. Wild bitter ones but did those ancient Egyptian watermelons taste like the ones we eat did they have the mutations for sweetness and maybe for the red color the painting can't really tell you that. But fortunately, some other watermelon evidence has showed up in a four thousand year old Egyptian tomb complex the seeds and leaves from the tomb ended up at the q Royal Botanic Gardens in England

All African regional blocs clubbed together after all the benefits of infrastructure projects spill across borders. Third African leaders do not have to choose sides as they did during the Cold War. They can do business with western democracies and also with China and Russia and anyone else with something to offer because they have more choice now than ever before. Africans should be able to drive harder bargains. And out siders should not see this as zero sum contest as the Trump administration when it pays attention to Africa.

Yeah. Green. I remember fucking peppermint lifesavers breath mint commercial with that shit. But yet, and I know that they were like the process, according to producer, Nick, stump music historian of saying, you know, they jammed together, and like they were very much in the room for the creation of the music. So it wasn't sort of like, hey, I sampled this album or whatever. But then I then I guess you find where they cut it on the publishing and all that. Give him writing like he would sit there. They'd be jamming. And he'd be like wait that thing you did five seconds ago. I'm going gonna sing over that. And then they didn't get writing credit. But, but then argument is that's how albums your studio musician you come in day rate. You jam when we get some inspiration. You get your check. We all right in. Yeah. But I guess, you know, the bottom line is the more you can you're transparent about where the inspiration comes from give credit to it.

And you you got their voice out there. So it's I guess it's just a gray area. It's not all black and white. And I think some of the controversy was just the sort of boycott because of South African apartheid to that crossed over. And they're like, yo we got a we're trying to have a United front against that. But you know, he was like I'm dealing with artists and just as a contrast to like some less gray area stuff.

"So we cannot just say it's all about Chinese state capitalism to exact com cho-, you know, in Africa, Morocco. I certainly agree with that. I would say that there is a role for Chinese consulates to play in making sure that Chinese companies in the countries are registered that there can be a recourse mechanism. If there is any breaking of the law government, I think in Beijing needs to rope these people in because even though they may not be, you know, pressing the buttons and making these companies behave in a certain way. Unfortunately, for. Them the blowback is being characterized as the Chinese government is dot dot dot. So there is a role for them to become more proactive, especially given the exponential rise in trade aid and investment that China has put into Africa and the amount of natural resources that it's pulling out almost as a direct result. It's a very delicate relationship. Just add to that. China considers Africa as not j.

"From the BBC with me Ed Butler. We're looking at the story outer gang show. Today. I'm more generally about the state of cultural relations between China and Africa. I've referred to the burgeoning trade relationship between the two continents already isn't worth hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Most African mostly, of course, it's African oil and minerals heading east to supply Chinese domestic industrial production. But is this seen as the equal partnership that some political leaders would like to imply all these latest controversial measures in Guangzhou, symptomatic of something bigger. I've been talking to buddy barracuda. She's a digital financial services adviser at the World Bank group in Ghana. She's also spent years working and studying in China and also been speaking to Dr Jean goo. She is Chinese born research fellow at the institute of development studies at Sussex university in Britain. The incident in Guangzhou potentially could be perceived as at all face Chinese state. I I to promote greater cooperation between China and Africa. Cultural exchanges are crucial for Chinese and African people to understand the each other. But at the moment, in many cases, China and Africa learn about each other through western media rather than directors through contract activities. What are you say that? But I mean the the learning about each other face to face across the African continent on there. I mean, buddy Barocco went to bring you in on this. How would you characterize the relationship that you see across the African continent? It self between local people and the Chinese who've made Africa home of of of invested in the constant. I would say that although Africans in Chinese in Africa are by now very used to seeing each other still, there is a sense of a divide. And for many Africans that the Chinese are taking over -tunities away from them. For example, I currently reside in Donna over the past few years. There has been a swathe of deportations of Chinese who are illegally engaged in gold mining, and this was seen at the time as rather an aggressive move on the part of the Ghanaian government. But it was in response to domestic politics. You know, the population was getting frustrated with what they perceived as Chinese taking over -tunities away from them and also leading to environmental degradation. And we've seen that in other countries in Africa as well. I would like to make a point about Africans being barred from hotels in China. I did live and work in China myself, and I must say that I did feel that foreigners were welcome, but only a certain type of foreigner. So it was very difficult for me, for example, to get my work permit processed on. It was really. Because my passport is an African passport, and I understand too that in Guangzhou, weather, loss of Africans and many of them have overstayed their visas. So they don't have the right paperwork. A government has the right to clamp down on illegal immigrants, but in that case, the Chinese government should have requested that people show a valid visa and then treating them like legitimate visitors as you would treat visitors from the west. Dr j. people do feel some degree of separation from Chinese communities in Africa. And actually a lot of them haven't been an integrated population in those African countries where they operate very much. Well, in my research, I actually found that the required close relationship between the Chinese workers and local African people. Quite often, you know, I witnessed friendly football game between the Chinese and African workers. The more than one hundred fifty thousand Africans levian China, much author of them in Guangzhou and nearly one million Chinese in the African continent. So we cannot just make a sweeping statement. There's not close relationship. I think part of the problem perhaps here is that some people in Africa are concerned about the nature of this economic relationship because it doesn't seem like an equal one. Obviously, China is by far the rich, a partner in this relationship and some are even talking about it as a new form of economic colonialism. Yeah, there are lots of criticize mill, the Chinese Englishmen. In Africa, especially from the western media. But when you look at the African girls in risen two years, it's very much driven by the Chinese investment. And also when we talk about China will have to think about not just the Chinese government, but you know, the Chinese investors and traders and they're there to do business for their own, say not their to represent the Chinese government..

Did issue a statement though a few days ago, it said the situation that some Africans including Ugandans were refused to check into budget hotels in Guangzhou, purely resulted from the self made decisions of isolated hotels. Local government has instructed the involved hotels to stop these improper practices immediately and gave grave criticisms and education to these hotels at present. There is no hotel in Guangzhou which refuses to accommodate Africans measures have been taken to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. Chinese and African peoples are good brothers and the isolated cases of improper practice by some hotels should not impact the good relationship between us. Well, that's good. Isn't it? Except it appears not to be true reporter. Danny Vincent is in Hong Kong. He's been checking this story out for us. Hello, Danny, you've been in Guangzhou this weekend. I understand. Now what have you found our hotels still blocking entry to African passport-holders checks out many hotels in the area and area known Shelby, which is where many of the African community live in the city. For more I saw there were several hotels that was still rejecting people with African passports everywhere to go to the desk and ask to book a hotel room for the nights. They would ask what nationality we were. If it was an African nationality that simply say the Africans are not out to stay here for the time being we asked the question, why are Africans not allowed to stay some said they didn't know others said that there was a. Quest and order from the police and other authorities, demanding the hotels were not take African bookings. So we think it is an official judgment of and it looks like it must be, doesn't it because it's a city wide phenomenon. This applies not just to Uganda, NHS, not just a Nigerian. We think this is all Africans then the seems to be some dispute. Some of the hotel staff that I spoke to, they would say for Nigerians they would say it's Ugandans, but many would also say that anyone from any African nation simply wasn't able to stay one hotel staff at she said to me that even people from Columbia and also not able to stay in hotels in Guangzhou, right people from Columbia, presumably of dark skin. We excuse. The I was given was that this parent policy was really related to crime. No one was speaking semi officially, I'll speak in members of staff and sometimes security guards, they felt the African community perhaps committed more crime than.

"Business daily from the BBC coming up today. The strange story from China of a blanket citywide ban on visitors from Africa. I think it's a very racist policy. I don't think that is right. I don't think that's how states can build their relationships. So why is this lady so upset and what does the band say about why attitudes towards Africans? By the Chinese, there is a lot of racism, so I personally have experienced that myself, but I've also experienced that in Europe. I've also experienced that in America. Yup. Strong views coming up on business daily from the BBC. Sometimes in the world of news stories that just land on your lap. They just seem too big or too extrordinary to ignore today's program is all about one of those. I came across it on a recent trip to Uganda in Africa, it's a story that till now has scarcely been reported anywhere else. As far as I can see. We all know about extraordinary growth of China's role and trading activities. In many African countries we won't gets less talked about, perhaps is the position of Africans in China. Guangzhou is the center of China's southern industrial powerhouse. Its third richest city and its recently seen a rapid growth in the number of African migrants living and trading that concerned at the African presence. It seems the city authorities in Gwangju have introduced an extraordinary ban blocking all Africans from checking into the city's low and middle range hotels, even those who were booked weeks in advance. Take this lady Juliet her tangas. She. As a senior magistrate. From Uganda, she's an important lady. She was visiting Guangzhou last month, partly for official government reasons, and she recorded the moment. The hotel turned away. So that's usually happen. Is it as a happen before little weather's to throw you Jerry and is the first time and they did not give any reason. This is just ridiculous. But is it, is it possible for the police to just tell you don't take guess even those who are really boating if this possible in in China? No. It doesn't ever happen people. This is very sad. Yes. Well, on her return to Kampala I spoke to Julieta Tanger about what had happened. I got more details about what she'd been told when she reached a Gwangju hotel. It opened the door for me. I told them my name, they come from the huddle room. They asked me for my passport when I give them my passport, the told me that sorry, they could not host me. And when inquired why they told me that you see, we have all those from the police. The police told us not to host anybody from Uganda. You're no longer wanted. I asked him if there was any place elsewhere. Van put me in no, Madame, we see the guts meal of mop of Welsh. You omit around suckle of which they told me, you can only get accommodation fifty kilometers out of this suckle. Why had the police blacklisted all Ugandans from staying in hotels now, apparently someone was suspected to have committed a crime which someone suspected to be either Ugandan Nigerian or Kenyan. So all of those nationalities nationalities and without confirming it was female on male, just because one black person suspected to come from one of those countries. So all of us were on them. So then they told me I had one option either go back to four Shan a one sleep in a five step hotel. Now I had trouble on a budgets. So recall the embassy again the consulate. They've been hearing this was happening for three weeks. In fact, one of the consulate limbo sent me picture of a hotel, whether it puts a notice that block are not welcome, blurt guests are not welcomed African guests, why not welcome in the hotel. So basically everyone was being thrown out with a lot of other Africans around who you saw, who are in the same situation as you. Quite many because people of African descent a north wanted in the area. It is one hotel that almost got in, but then I realized that the reception is was looking at my American visa..
