Taliban says women banned from universities in Afghanistan - Al Jazeera English
"Afghanistan's Taliban rulers have bound to female students from attending universities. Afghan women in Kabul changed the slogan, do not make education political. But the latest Taliban edict effective immediately cracks down on women's rights and freedoms. A member of unity and solidarity of Afghanistan women says, once again, the university is banned for women. We do not want to be eliminated.

Al Jazeera journalist shirin Abu akle was killed while covering an Israeli arrest raid, a United Nations review and some media analyses found Israeli forces likely killed her. The Palestinian authority this weekend gave the bullet to a U.S. representative who oversaw an examination. The State Department says the bullet was badly damaged and the forensic examination was inconclusive, but it said the U.S. has reviewed Israeli and Palestinian official investigations and concluded that gunfire from Israeli army positions was likely responsible, though unintentional. Israel has not endorsed that conclusion, Israeli defense minister Benny Gantz said quote, Palestinian terrorists operating in a civilian population are chiefly responsible.

Would the Russia-Ukraine War Be Happening Under Trump?
"Debbie and I were in Florida the last couple of days and yesterday we had a very interesting one hour with Trump. We met in Mar-a-Lago and my family was there, Danielle, my daughter was there and her husband, so it was the four of us with former president Trump. And we talked about a bunch of stuff and I'm not going to go into it all. But he was very exercised, as he should be about the brutality that is being meted out by Putin in the Ukraine. And he rightly pointed out the obvious which is, this wouldn't be happening if I was in charge. If I was in the saddle, in fact, it didn't happen, so Trump doesn't have to prove it wouldn't happen. It didn't happen. So it's as the marxists like to say, it is no accident. It is no accident that this is happening under Biden. In fact, the last time the Russians acted up a Democrat was in The White House. Now, there's disturbing escalation at all levels in the Ukraine, perhaps most unnerving here is the foreign minister Sergei Lavrov. He's actually talking about the possibility of nuclear warfare. He was interviewed in Al Jazeera and he says, well, you know, who knows? It could be the start of World War three, and he goes World War three is going to be nuclear for sure. And unbelievably destructive. And so to have such an apparently casual references to nuclear war is disturbing to say the least. Now again, we should always think that these could be rhetorical tactics. It's a way of telling the west. Listen, it's very easy for you to talk about doing this and doing that, but don't forget that you're not your dealing here with a nuclear tipped power.

"Freewheeling about their day. This is during a task that is designed to create conflict. When the paint when the subjects were stuck on the task, that's when they would get the stimulation. And in both treatment groups did better than no treatment, then no stimulation, but the closed loop artificially intelligent driven stimulation like prodding them when they're stuck did significantly better than the random stimulation one. Interesting. Did it? Yeah. Can I just ask sorry, this is a random aside, but you did have any motor effects on them? I would be worried about that if there were zapping the internal capsule. Yeah, yeah. I know. I agree, but it didn't note any. Oh, interesting. Okay. Yeah. Yeah, it's not like they physically twitch when they get when they get shocked. They probably it sounds like they were targeting the more sensory pathways. Gotcha. Yeah. So, that's, you know, this is pretty interesting. Is this still a fairly crude, but when you think about it, you know, if we're using AI to read brain states and then provide either spatially and temporally targeted electrical stimulation to the brain and all in order to alter its function, even something as a high function, such as cognitive control, that's pretty amazing. We're hacking the brain. Again, even at a basic level, you know, we're doing it legitimately, you know, as part of therapeutic intervention here. And this has a lot of promise, this approach. Any risks with this approach, Steve? It's invasive. I know what infection. Yeah. There's an electrode in this person's brain. So although we've been doing this safely for years again, this technology is advancing and it's pretty well established now. How long does it stay where it needs to stay? Before it moves too far. That's always a good question. There's always the risk that there'll be fibrous tissue, which will degrade the connection and that it could migrate a little bit because you remember the brain's pulsating. Right. But in DBS patients, tell me if I'm wrong, Steve, but I think the bigger risk is that the actual implanted remote kind of dies. Yeah. Like that happens sooner. It seems like the electrode implants are a lot more stable, but the other power supply to them that's like usually in somebody's chest or their shoulder area. That has to be replaced or serviced or whatever. Yeah, although that can be done, so it's not like a limiting factor. But yeah, at this point, you know, you think about like there's three components to this. There's the brain machine interface. There's this software, and then there's just the technology of the electrodes. And all that stuff, the batteries, the powering. Right now, that last thing, the electrodes in the battery and the power. That's the limiting factor. And it's getting better all the time. Yeah, but that's the thing that really I'd love to see significantly improve. The AI is way beyond what we needed to be to accomplish what we're trying to do with it. And we did we also need the electrodes themselves that connection to improve. But we already have electrodes that are very like microfiber electrodes that are work really well. Yeah, they're soft, they're flexible. It's pretty cool. It's coming along. It's coming along. So I'm really hoping within like 20 years or so like with 20 years of like you know, you think about where solar panels were 20 years ago, they were terrible compared to what we have today. And there was no breakthrough. It was just 20 years of steady incremental advance. I think that's kind of where we are with this technology. And I think in ten, 20 years, it's going to be pretty significant. And the bottom line is there's no theoretical limit using this kind of technology to our ability to hack the brain to alter whatever functions we want, because the brain is a machine. It's just a sophisticated machine. There's two things that come up for me, Steve, that I think maybe I want to ask or I want to highlight or I think it's important to point out and question. The first one is that people who are listing very often you'll hear us debunking like headbands and these consumer marketed products to hack the brain. And I think it's important to sort of highlight the difference between this very clinical research, where there are implants and there's usually you're hooked up to these wires and there's like a computer thing and there's versus this like slick looking head set, like headband that you put on and then you're supposed to wear it while you read and you're going to be able to focus better. Yeah, there's always the fake consumer level knockoffs, you know. And I wouldn't use knock off brain hacking. I just wouldn't recommend that. I agree. There's always going to be that layer though, because anybody could produce a device that does nothing, make whatever they want, claim whatever they want for it. The industries really support poorly regulated. And the thing is the technology isn't there yet for us to have what they are marketing does what it does. It doesn't do what it does. We're not there yet. Yeah, but what if you go, what if you extend that to the other side of the coin is externally manipulating the brain using technology like magnetic fields, which we know can be used to. We're doing that already things. Right. So can that connect type of technology replicate any of this stuff that you're talking about Steve with the electrodes? Yeah, theoretically it depends what you're doing. Not reading the brain activity that you need electrodes for that at this point in time. But stimulating different parts of the brain at brain absolutely. It's not as precise as having a wire next to brain tissue, but it is transcranial magnetic simulation. It is a treatment reality. It does work. But again, these devices are huge. They're not they are huge. Just slick little headbands or anything. That's fine with me. I don't sit in a go sit in a chair. There's also a smart for two days. Well, that's the thing. It doesn't make you smarter. Like, and I think that's the important thing. Of course not now. Superpowers. Yes, is another example, right? Transcranial direct current stimulation is another example of a quote unquote brain hack. And one of the things that was sort of eye opening for me, I remember years ago, going and visiting labs, I did a story for the Al Jazeera show. I worked on where we talked about CDC, both in the laboratory and also sort of in the hacking covert community of people who are doing just that trying to do some DIY brain hacking. And sort of the safety implications. I mean, there's so much to talk about. And I remember when you look at the literature, it's like we're testing it for cognitive control, we're testing it for depression, we're testing it for mathematical capabilities. And you're like, this sounds like snake oil. How could it possibly do all of this? And I remember speaking to a researcher and he said something that was effective for me and Steve, I'm interested to hear your take on it. He was saying, it's because you're thinking about it from a categorical perspective that's not quite right. Of course it sounds like snake oil if you're trying to say, for example, this pill hears all these different things. But if what we're talking about is drug drug can work on your heart, drug can work on your brain, drug can help with cholesterol. It's a whole new platform. Yes. It's and so it really depends on where are the electrodes. Where are the leads? How have you mapped the brain? And what is the task that you're doing while you're stimulating? All those things kind of come into play. I've actually independently used that same analogy. I love that. It's like saying, yeah, how could drugs do so many different things? Because there's lots of different drugs. They're all different. These are all different treatments targeting different parts of the brain with some with increasing function or decreasing function or whatever in different disease states in different in different patterns, et cetera. And again, the other thing is the thing that really grips me is that with pharmacology, there's a theoretical limit about how precise we can get because the brain is kind of biologically messy, biochemically. It looks like too. But with electromagnetic hacking of the brain, there's no theoretical limit. It's all a technological limit. But there's no biological limit. And it will get to the point at some point we'll be able to make the brain do whatever we want to do without them. Yeah, I mean, imagine a self replicating little device that can basically hitch a ride on every neuron in your head. I mean, I don't want that. That sounds so scary. Oh, I won't be the first guy with that, but I might be the 5th. Knowing that there would be a potential then for somebody else to seize control of that choice. Just keep your firmware up to date. Well, let me take a quick break from our show to talk about one of our sponsors this week bombas socks. Bomb misses mission.

We're following one couple sorting through the aftermath of the financial and emotional crisis. Listen to financial therapy on death, sex and money wherever you get podcasts. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep in Washington and I'm Leila Fadel in Culver City, California The U. S military has ramped up evacuation efforts out of Kabul. More than 16,000. People have been flown out within 24 hours. The Democratic chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff says that may not be enough to get every American and Afghan allies of the US out by the by the August 31st withdrawal deadline. I think it's possible, but I think it's very unlikely. President Biden is facing pressure to extend the deadline and he's meeting with G seven leaders today to discuss the withdrawal. Meanwhile, Afghans who have made the harrowing journey out of Kabul are being taken to transit centers and military bases around the world before moving on to a third country. One of those places is a U. S air base in Qatar. Joining us now is Jamal Elshayyal. He's a senior correspondent with Al Jazeera in Doha, Qatar. It and recently visited that base. Good morning, German Morning. How are you guys? Thank you for joining us. So you were at the L RD Airbase walk us through who's being housed there now. So it's a mixer. There's two kind of operations that are taking place in conjunction simultaneously. One is being led by the Qataris themselves. Battery, Uh, Air Force planes that are going in bringing in mainly students, women and family. From Afghanistan. Those who want to leave and they're coming in the arteries processing those number in the hundreds close to 1000. Maybe. And then there's another operation that the Americans are doing in the American military is doing but being also facilitated or helped by the potteries, and that's bringing in people in the thousands. And those are mainly translators. Those who worked for either the U. S military there or the embassy and Other collaborators or those who who worked with them in in different fields. I say it's being facilitated by the country's because on the ground in Kabul, for example, the Qatari ambassador is ensuring through negotiations with the Taliban safe passage for those people to reach Kabul airport and then when the plane comes here, the American base, although it's a US military base, obviously it's being hosted by the Qatari. So in terms of certain equipment and other things like that, that's something that The batteries are assisting with two. So you're talking about thousands of people on this base. So what are the conditions? Well, initially, there were a lot worse than they are now. That's based on both testimony of those who first came in, as well as the military personnel and officials that we spoke to when we were at the base and simply that is because it's a military base is not equipped to house. Thousands of civilians, Certainly not in huge droves coming within. You know the space of hours, if not just a couple of days. So initially, what was happening was, you know, hundreds of refugees were being put into these airplane hangars, which weren't equipped, not we're not equipped with toilets, not equipped with beds not equipped with air conditioning. The temperature in Qatar in this summer month is probably the highest it is throughout the year. Um, but swiftly the Americans have tried to bring about some sort of Assistance in this, so they've portable toilets. They've housed them now and maybe holes gathering calls, but still, it's nowhere near ideal. There was a really warm food and stuff like that. Sounds like a a scramble to deal with incoming. Um people. Does the U. S personnel does U. S personnel have enough staff to process everyone they don't And that's that's by their own admission. Um, I think a big part of that is because even you know, from the President all the way down to the generals and those on the ground. Nobody expected things to develop a swiftly as they did, and therefore The warrant equipped. They weren't equipped either from the basics that I explained in terms of living services or nor were they equipped from a security perspective in terms of processing these visas. So we are told that the people at the base here and an audit are hoping that there are T s a staff and other immigration officials and security stuff that are meant to be flying in from the United States here to help process These thousands of refugees. Germany and with Al Jazeera reporting from Doha, Qatar. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you. We should note here that Al Jazeera is funded by the government of Qatar. Some of you have been asking about the fate of a man known as Reggie, an Afghan who served as an interpreter for U. S troops. He was on this program last week on the phone from Kabul. Listeners were deeply affected when he said he was simply grateful that Americans remembered him. My family. My kids is telling me that bad guy is going to come and is going to kill you faster than us. And I keep telling them them know there are a lot of good friends that I have in America have made a lot of good friends and they're gonna take us baby. You don't have to worry about it. We can now tell you that Reggie was right. He did have friends. There's a constellation of Americans trying to get out those who served with them in Afghanistan. They sometimes seem near tears when you talk with them and then turned back to their efforts to leave nobody behind. One of those people is captain Flo Groberg of Washington State. He spent recent weeks pulling every string he knows to get Afghans onto planes. Groberg. It's a recipient of the Medal of Honor in 2012. He was serving in Afghanistan when a man approached wearing a suicide vest. Groberg shoved the suicide bomber aside into the ground, saving other members of his unit. The vast detonated. Groberg lost some of his hearing and much of the use of one leg. Reggie the interpreter helped him to stop the bleeding, even though Reggie had been wounded himself. In recent days as Kabul fell to the Taliban. Grossberg and others were working to get Reggie out. Groberg called friends and also counseled Reggie. He told him to take his papers to the airport. Reggie says he tried to push through the crowds. Every single again. We're trying to get in. So I was unable to get in because I have kids and I don't want my kids to get hurt or die because people are horrible running when The police are the guards Security government airport were charging the people. Reggie went home and called Flo Groberg back in America who made another call to another friend and gave Reggie fresh instructions. Take your wife.

Saudi Arabia says it seeks a way to end dispute with Qatar
"I think that we should talk about the gulf because the gulf cooperation council due to meet in riyadh on tuesday to discuss a potential end to the blockade of qatar. That has been going on since twenty seventeen And obviously this is provoked Quite a bit of coverage about whether we will finally see a deal and see an end to this blockade So if for example you look and you have to look pretty hard but you will find coverage in the saudi daily arab news Which started with statements from the kuwaiti ambassador to saudi arabia. Says there is a for tunnel and positive atmosphere ahead of the talks. And how credible is the report of fraternal positive atmosphere Extremely good question. A lot of the coverage that we see so for example if you look At some of the coverage online at fronts. Twenty four Aljazeera tells aljazeera which is Very much the focus of some of the irritation from Blockading countries for that coverage They help they also covered this story. it took me a while to find that story to interestingly enough But they both they give different reasons for how close or how far this this group of countries might be to a resolution so if you look at france twenty. Four they mentioned A coach an analyst is saying that bahrain hasn't signed but the other blockading states have They quote The abu dhabi minister for foreign affairs on walker gash a big figure saying that political and social atmospheres in the gulf are looking to end the koto crisis. If you consider that to be a meaningful statement But if you look at what. Al jazeera is doing They kind of casually mentioned that you know any deal. won't be a comprehensive agreement it will be a set of principles and they say the pressure is on saudi from from the us To come to an agreement But the the uae has. It's own agenda so quite different versions of the same situation. What will break this. Because there's no way surely that kosovo will say we supported terrorism. Yes we're too close to run. That's very true. I mean previously. There was a list of i believe it was about twelve points that The blockading states for trying to get caught up to agree to that. Included things like shutting down Their state broadcaster aljazeera And qatar essentially said well. We're we're going to wait it out and did nothing as far as we can tell At least from the outside And so i think that what the customers have shown is that they can outlast this. So i mean i think it will really start with the idea that any agreement has to be a negotiated on more reasonable lines Looks like it will be about things like use of saudi airspace for example And so things you know if they start negotiating along things that where you might be able to reach agreement then an agreement perhaps could be on the horizon.

"So, Senator I want to close by talking about covert relief. You helped lead Georgia on its recovery with the first virus relief bill. Now the new one is here. What difference does that make for Georgia voters? I think it's an impactful. You know, everybody the baby thing right now he was it was. It's impactful for the people of Georgia. They need it. I mean, we save the meet and have jobs in the first round of cares. We've got $47 million to the state. This furthers that and it re programs about a half a trillion dollars from the original. Here's that redirected the people who need it back. Seen school's P P p people who are really hurting in the state, So that's the real reason the president. I wanted to do this. So the Americans You would have done it months ago that the Democrats have been obstructed. Not saying I want to close my time out. Jon Ossoff's Who You're running against. He's 33 years old. When I was 33. I'd put five years into the Reagan administration, and nobody even asked my opinion. I had jobs to do and I carry briefcases. And I learned from Ed Meese and Bill Smith and Ronald Reagan in front dealing, but nobody cared what I thought that they hadn't done anything. Honestly, goodness, a 33 year old empty suit with ties to the Chinese Communist Party money funding him. How is this even possible? You know, I understand. Raphael Warnock has got The you know, emotional support of the black community in Atlanta, but I do not understand Jonah's off having anybody vote for him. It shows the Democratic agenda. What they've done is they picked you actors, either one of these qualified immunity Nice. They did it. They don't have any life work. They don't have real experience. John US off in his career. He's only really done. One thing goes himself a documentary journalist, his biggest client. The last nine years in a business that is daddy bought for him was Al Jazeera, the spokes people for terrorists and Isis in in the last two years, this is shows bad judgment, and it's a real dangerous thing on the back of the swallow. Scandal and also the motorbike scale and shows what China's doing. They're finding John impressionable liberals. They're developing strong relationships with them. This is the scandal, but I think it's out there that are soft is not complete on for two years, he worked for them and he hit it got caught. And and then he lied about it. So these are these are very dangerous. Things that are being exposed right now and join us off is really not answered any of those, but it goes bigger than anyone, she said. He's really got the life experience. Bring. He's a career politician wannabe. He ran in 17 against Karen Handel and lost in the House. Hey, morning mail, and he's known as the incinerator. I mean, he's brought up a lot of money. So far, I can tell you that it's not just Georgia but the entire country. Looking at the Senate races, there are implications better dramatic nationwide. Ohio congressman Jim Jordan discussed the race with Bob France, My friend and colleague on am 14 20. The answer out of Cleveland, January 5th obviously is the Georgia runoff. There have been millions of votes cast already and in the early voting as well as in absentee ballot request. What is your feeling? What is your feeling right now? Raphael Warnock and I can't speak. You know, it's funny. I usually speak to you. And ask you what is the one of the ramifications if we lose those races, and the Democrats control the Senate, But I don't ask you about the individual candidates right often. These are very, very despicable, disgusting people and more than just the big picture Senate control. Having these individuals in Congress is a big problem. Yeah, right, Senator Senator for doing Senator Lott for our great candidates, And if the Democrats get in there, you know what's gonna happen is there's gonna be more attacks on your freedom more. The cancel culture mob attacking you online more than mobbed in the streets because they believe in the people in the police concept more of attacks on your First Amendment liberties and you're second in the liberties and that that's that's what's been a steak so much with the left. They left. It's about taking away your liberty. So this is important that the polling numbers look better for our candidates over the last several days. I think that's a good sign when I spent three days down in Georgia a couple weekends ago. I felt good about the races I did. A couple of insects with senator lost her and five other events just to kind of rally Republican voters and I think we're gonna win because I think the I think folks in Georgia and around the country know what the steak I just hope people understand. Like I said, more than just Hey, we need to keep control individually here. John Assad has some serious serious China Communist Party ties here. We're talking about financial ties. We're talking about the kind of things that you know the Democrats. They cannot seem to get a well, actually, they get away with it. But they can't get away from this China prom between 100 Biden and Joe Biden and all of the information that came out that was ignored by the media prior to The election to Eric Swalwell, sleeping with the enemy, quite literally sleeping with a Chinese spy and sitting on the Intel committee. Now you've got China on a soft hair away from being in the United States Senate with all of his Chinese financial ties. I mean, Congressman, I hope people understand the voters of Georgia and the people around the country the other early that is our greatest threat to national security. And quite frankly, you know, geopolitically, the communist Chinese. No, It's very scary. I do think Americans get it. I think Georgians get it when I was down there doing seven different events over three days talking with with people there in the great state of Georgia, they understand it. They understand that in the end, it really is about freedom. I always say there's a reason we we We found this just caucus here in D C and in the house. There's a reason we called it The Freedom Caucus because it's really in the end about freedom. We think of virus that 99.8% of people recover from, and yet we have probably how many millions of Americans under curfew right now. You think about that? You know how you know and they're telling us when you have to be in your home. They're telling us who you could have in your home and what you what you're allowed to wear while you have people in your home that's going on in this country right now. So in the end, this is really about freedom. And I think, as I said earlier, I think Americans get it coming.

So let's start with the black lives matter Protests over the summer They popped up in thousands of places around the world after George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis back in May. Social was a significant part of this movement, wasn't it? Honey, I'm going to say that social was a critical part of this movement. I'm going to tell you about a youngster called Die Nella Frasier. She was 17 in mid May, and she was heading to a grocery store with a little cousin. She stopped when she saw the police surround a black man who was being pinned to the ground. That man was George Floyd. She took out her phone and she started to film. When she got home. She posted that video on Facebook and she posted they killed him right in front of cup foods over south on 38th and Chicago. No type of sympathy. Two broken hearts, Emoji hashtag police brutality. Of course we all know that video was shed so many times that we know not. We now know George voice name how he was treated by police. Want videos like this. They create huge big ethical conversations. Should you film people being hurt in danger or in distress? Should you document their distress or should you put your phone down and step in to help them? So on done. Ella's Facebook page there lots of criticisms about what she did Marry A sheen, for instance, says, Couldn't you try to help him a sort of obscenely filming? His last living moments with your smartphone? Was that just social networking more important to you than the man's life? Locked.

This was the first pandemic grow. We have technology and social media to help us but also to hurt us. So the World Health organization called the infidel Mick on over abundance of information, both online and offline, that he's potentially dangerous.

Then we saw $10,000 then then Instagram had only one that needs to be viewers. You couldn't do more than that, right? So they were like, oh totally what more we want more and then we said we go let's go and let's have horses were being as you know, let's have physical classes.
