The Administration Is Doubling Down on Green Energy Projects In... Angola?

"Instead of actually focusing on the United States of America, we have Biden talking about how green a country like Angola can be. Listen to him talking about the importance of it here first. We need worldwide effort to invest in transformative clean energy projects. If you ensure that critical infrastructure is resilient to changing climate, critical materials are necessary for our clean energy transition. Okay, okay, so it's critical. It's critical. We need the materials. We need to make sure it all happens. And this is why we're focusing on Angola. For example, U.S. government just facilitated a new partnership between two American firms and the government of Angola to invest $2 billion in building a new solar projects in Angola. It's a partnership that will help Angola made his climate goals and energy needs while creating new markets for American technologies and good jobs and Angola and I suspect throughout Africa. Great. Great. Okay, I'm really happy for Angola. And that's great to see that the U.S. is working with Angola and these other companies and investing $2 billion there so they can have green energy. Look, I'm not trying to make light of that. I'm actually a big believer in having U.S. presence in a lot of places that are rich resources that would benefit us and I'd certainly like to see us there before the Chinese. However, at a time like this, when Americans are really, really struggling, why not have the green energy companies

And that has been accompanied by the government's greasing the minimum age for marriages but martha also notes. The number of girls go beyond secondary. Education is nowhere near high enough orderly. Nine per seat of the young people end up being in high education. This is unacceptable. We should make sure that we expand this. Even the tipline vocation educational training.

"And co author of the american slave coast navy also co-creator afropop worldwide hip-deep series and. He joins me to the if pe- playlist more about the episode and how cd's came to be. Thank you so much for joining us this week. I think i wanted to start at the beginning. As what made you start the hip-deep cd's afropop worldwide. I've been cuba specialist for many many years. I've been working in cuba for over thirty years. And i've been particularly working with the african side of cuban culture and fundamental to the afghan side of cuban culture is congo and congo is less well known worldwide than the yoruba religion better known as santa but congo might even be more prevalent in cuba. And when the portuguese came to congo back in fourteen. Eighty three and met with the money congo jingan coup. That was bonn so congo which is today in northern angola. What was it. One time called portuguese. Angola and was for many years called san salvador. And i went to meet with a cuban art. Historian anthropologist bought about oh martinez ruiz. Who has done more work than anybody on the ground in a monster. Congo and really the point of my trip was to visit in bonn so congo and to the seat of the ancient kongo kingdom and learn what i could about the traditional kongo cosmology and music and out of that came a whole series of four one hour programs supported. I should add by the night loose institute for reporting on global religion Which is important because figure the lot of the applications they got for reporting on global religion was about christianity or islam or judaism more to the world than that and in particular in cuba. We have very very close visions of the traditional religious culture of various parts of west and central africa and that was really what impelled me. Now as to the cuban intervention in angola. This is something that's been fascinating me for thirty plus years that i've been working in cuba and i had long wanted to make an afropop episode about it afropop worldwide radio program. I produced a sometimes. It's not my show but Produced over one hundred episodes of it in the years since nineteen ninety we created a series called hip deep which was a scholarly series which got underwriting grants etc to allow us to do a more elaborate production than we might normally do and indeed my four hours of angolan documentary was the most elaborate radio production. I've ever had the resources to do what i find so interesting. I want to get to the cuban intervention but when you took the idea that to trace the history between the country. Band centered as angola and cuba and to go back to the book on kingdom so faster by the idea that you created these connections and normally we look at these things. We park them in colonialism. What made you go straight to the original kingdom. There was no way. I would understand what was going on in cuba. If i hadn't been there very simple and i worked for years to be able to do this. It was one of the most difficult things i've ever done and one of the most rewarding things i've ever done. I think there's something really really important that hardly anybody knows has everything to do with how the not just cuba. But the entire hemisphere developed the congo. The large central african congo angola region was the most heavily slave region of africa for the longest time. As of fourteen ninety one the year before could slow bile cologne sailed west to kongo kingdom was cathal sized. The first missionary south of the equator arrived in bonn so congo and two of them. Congo was not converted at sword's point in the monte congo jingle and cool who became haizhu al prenatal received a marvelously affluent and well connected patron he in adopting christianity and in ordering the conversion of his kingdom to catholicism now in converting to catholicism what the congo the congo got was a whole new series of signs symbols and power objects but the traditional practice continued this traditional practice. Today in cuba is known as ballo or paulo monteiro. Paul palo miami and is very widely practiced all across cuba but throughout the hemisphere the congo people the buck humble were understood to be catholic. Which meant that in the united states. They were suspect. They were fifth columnists because the colonial united states in the early republic was very anti-catholic but in the catholic part of him as fear the congo were very numerous and is that i mean so numerous connections between cuba and even before the colonial project started so it's religious connection. It's the musical connection. It's the historical connection. And i was wondering when i was listening to a podcast part of the interested that this little known history and i thought well that's fascinating because here in southern africa we know full well what what cubans did for southern africa and angola in particular. Why do you think that history hasn't gone across the atlantic in the same way as in. Why is it that this history is still so little known on that side of the world whereas here in southern africa we know that all that the cubans played. Well this has to do with the image of cuba. I think as described and very poorly understood above all in the north american media. The cuban intervention in angola was completely misunderstood by the united states. Government is it was happening as pierre. Ugliest research demonstrates Henry kissinger was convinced. That fidel was the soviets lackey. It was a bipolar world. The united states and the soviet union. And you were with these guys are you. Were with these guys. And the idea that fidel castro could be acting on his own with his own agency. That cuba could be acting with agency in this. This was unthinkable in the same way that to reference michelle rav trio and his famous book. Silencing the past the haitian revolution has tended to disappear from the historical narrative because it was unthinkable. That such a thing could happen. This was equally unthinkable that this that this relatively small country could make sense. Have such an outsized impact on the other side of the world just.

A Gay Teen Struggles to Exist in 'Moffie'

"This is fresh air. Our film critic Justin Chang recently caught up with the new movie Mafi, which tells the story of a white South African teenager hiding his sexuality as a young soldier under apartheid in the early 19 eighties. You can stream it now on many major platforms. Here's Justin's review the brutal and mesmerizing new film Muffy takes place in South Africa in 1981 when white teenage boys are conscripted to fight in the country's border wars. Story follows a group of these young men as they endure the rigors of basic training and are sent to fight communist forces from neighboring Angola. The conflict that most concerns The movie, adapted from Andre Carl Vandermeer Vase autobiographical novel is the one raging inside. It's 16 year old protagonist, Nicholas He's coming to grips with his homosexuality in an environment that couldn't be more hostile to it. Nicholas, played by a quietly magnetic newcomer named Kai Luke Brummer feels like an outsider from the start, and not just because of his forbidden desires. He was born in England, as anyone can tell from his accent and gets hazed by some of his more loudest comrades early on. That's nothing compared with the verbal and physical abuse dished out by their commanding officers who make our Lee Ermey in full metal jacket look downright cuddly. Nicholas makes connections, too. Befriends another young man, Michael, who was quick to defend him against bullies. Nicholas Forge is a much more dangerous bond in secret one rainy night when the young men are forced to dig trenches and sleep in them. Seeing Nicholas Shiver miserably in the cold. Another soldier, Dylan gently persuades him to curl up next to him for warmth. What happens next is fairly tame.

Lawsuit calls Deshaun Watson a 'serial predator' with 16 lawsuits against him now alleging sexual assault

"Another day. More allegations, lawsuits and things being said involving Houston Texans quarterback to Shawn Watson. We're up to 16 lawsuits. Now. One of those lawsuits called the Shawn Watson, a serial predator. His lawyer, Rusty Hard, said in the statement that his law firm has strong evidence showing that one of the lawsuits alleging sexual assault against his client is false and that it calls into question the legitimacy of the other cases as well. NBC Houston sports reporter Vanessa Bridges and put on Twitter at Sports Vanessa. She reported details under Sean watching allegations and that multiple sources close to the situation told her the shot watching did have sexual counters with some of the accusers. But those sources insist those encounters were completely consensual. Ryan Smith, ESPN legal analysts in Angola Junior What is the timeline for when this becomes a legal process involving the Shawn Watson? All civil right now? For civil cases, it can take months or longer. We're talking about first, their service of process which I assume and some of these cases might have already happened. We don't know for sure, then typically to sort of watch inside will answer these claims. Then you go to the point where Norman. In many cases, you might see this. In this case, Shawn Watson's lawyers will ask to have the case dismissed. We'll see how judges view that then you go in the process of different like discovery. Proceed to trying to establish the jury or or otherwise. So these things take a long time. And typically, what you might say is well, maybe it settles. Maybe it goes away pretty quickly. It was pretty clear that John Watson said he wasn't Least initially was not interested in settling this. And now that you have such a large volume, it does seem like settlement is much more unlikely than it was in the beginning of this process. So this is the kind of thing that can take a very long time, months, if not longer. And now the NFL's also doing their own investigation here, Freddie I mean 16 civil suits now filed against the Shawn Watson from different 16 different miss uses. I reserve judgment until everything you know until everything it plays out. I guess that's the one the most responsible thing to do. Now, in the court of public opinion, that never happens. I mean to Shawn Watson is already you know it is brand. His name has been Just absolute tarnished by by most people across this country and in college, folk, college and pro football fans.

I don't know what it is said that when they heard it, 12 and a very rapid escalation to 16, and no criminal charges have been brought against the Shawn Watson yet, right?

China wants to go carbon neutral by 2060, which could mean kicking out some tech

"Inner. Mongolia is under pressure from the chinese government to reduce its energy use and the province has responded by cracking down on high energy activities. It's kerr tailing new steel and methanol production big data centers and banning cryptocurrency mining. That is notable because inner. Mongolia is a huge hub for crypto mining which requires a tremendous amount of electricity as supercomputers run millions of calculations to generate new coins. Jennifer pack marketplace's china correspondent. She says the environmental effects of crypto currency mining. Were in some ways an economic trade off. You have to understand that a lot of the latest where cryptocurrency mining is happening are poor places And so a lot of those local governments they want to attract these types of industries like crypto currency mining because it's generating economic growth for them and china's the biggest manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining equipment and also labor. These are the attractive features. Of and i don't think that just by one region in china trying to crack down on this would mean that china would no longer be a major player still will be. How will this. Crackdown potentially affect carbon emissions in that region at least in inner mongolia. If it goes according to plan it's going to go down but inner mongolia actually has a lot of Other renewable energies as well. It's just that cryptocurrency mining sucks up a lot of electricity but certainly china has committed itself to going carbon neutral by twenty sixty. And you can be sure that there will be a lot of pressure coming from the central leadership on these various places to get itself in line. You know all countries will have to reduce emissions to keep climate change on track for the goals that in the paris agreement big tack in general from bitcoin mining to these big power intensive data centers could be more of a target in the future right. Are there lessons. We can take away from this move. Definitely they're going to be the target. I guess There are other regions. As i mentioned where China also has cryptocurrency mining bases so in places like sichuan and they have rich hydropower So it's not always derived from coal but it is possible that could come from renewable energies. I guess it really comes down to the consumer right the demand because if you talk about the future of cryptocurrency mining it really just comes down to the profitability so it's likely that it will just keep shifting to wherever its most profitable the kind of mir's what's happened to labour-intensive industries right shoe shoe-manufacturing any other dirty industries that are undesirable. It usually just ends up to other places where the enforcement is rather lax if you will because they need the money for development. That's basically what the story is here in.

K. had a documented total of three hundred eighty two cases as of yesterday six people with the virus have died in the U. K. in the United States the total number of cases now has surpassed one thousand cases in the United States we have twenty nine deaths so far the the clusters are happening on the coast mainly in Massachusetts New York Santa Clara California and up in Seattle Washington the first known US front of Irish cases announced January twenty first in Washington state the pace of diagnosis has quickened significantly in recent weeks at the start of the month seventy cases have been reported in this country most of them tied to overseas travel since then new cases have been pouring in by the dozens and then by the hundreds the coronavirus updates are coming fast and furious the mayor of New York bill de Blasio he said that there are lots of cases coming in at like dozens per day in New York City as testing is made available it is obvious that there are a lot of people who are least carrying corona virus without knowing that they are carrying corona virus or the the German public has now been warmed up to seventy percent of Germans face the possibility of infection that's going to Angola Merkel and of course the top US health official Dr Dr Anthony Fauci he said this is going to get worse so Dr Fauci said all hands are basically on track with this thing these are really simple keep the workplace safe keeping the home safe keeping the schools safe and keeping commercial establishing safe this should be universal for the country everyone should be doing that where do you live in his own that as communities spread or not when you have community spread you obviously going to ratchet up the kinds of medications that you have but at a minimum this is the minimum that we should be doing so everybody should say all hands on deck this is what we need to do in a non shocking news thanks to again the up and down of the corona virus news the stock market in creamed again it's just up and down insanely was up like a thousand points and then is dumped again back down a thousand points pretty amazing how the stock market is bouncing around like a yo yo no we're not gonna know honestly where anything stands until the end of April Megan McArdle has an interesting column over the Washington post a lot of people might really like everyone is looking around going I don't see a lot of car owners out there yeah we had a grand total of like four thousand deaths worldwide if you look at the flu every year and kills like a hundred thousand people worldwide minimum maybe hundreds of thousands of people worldwide every year so why are we also worried about coronavirus Megan McArdle has this statistical dot experiment to remind you that when there's an exponential growth factor things move really quickly right you don't see anything in the C. everything right it let let's say you have a pond with lily pads example that you get statistically and it explains why were also worried today if you have a pond with lily pads and the lily pads are going to overtake the pond as they grow in each day the lily pads double the number of lily pads double so let's say that day one it's one to which to death rates for right to keep stumbling on the very last day the lily pads cover the entire pond the question is at what point did lily pads cover half the pond at what point it really has got a half upon and the answer is the day before they cover the entire contract if they're doubling every day and that means that half the town was covered yesterday and today boom suddenly the entire pond is covered that is how exponential growth works okay that is what people are feeling in terms of coronavirus is that we have exponential growth of coronavirus what you end up with is no one around me has it oops everyone I think that's it right that that that is what people are fearing is that sudden is that sudden object and this is what is being feared by the trump former homeland security adviser Tom Bossert he says hospitals are basically ten days away from being creamed he suggested in an op ed that we are we are in trouble in terms of our our hospital facilities as officials must pull the trigger on aggressive interventions said aggressive internet interventions put off and ease the burden on hospitals and other healthcare infrastructure and that of course is true as one of my wrists wells then the hospitals that need to be prepared as I already said mayor bill de Blasio said that things are happening intensely in New York City and the governor Jay Inslee has no restricted gathers more than two hundred and fifty people in king county as well as several as well as you know how much and Pierce counties which are the the biggest counties in Washington state that means no soccer games means no it means no baseball games it means that basically all major gatherings ought to be canceled according to Jay Inslee the governor of Washington state Dr foundry has suggested there be no crowds at NBA games so basically if you have tickets for opening day in the United States for baseball you can fairly bank that that is not going to happen why colleges are canceling events I would not be surprised if my college events this semester for example are canceled that would not be a great shock again I think that all of this makes a certain amount of sense like better caution and they have this viral outbreak you want to reduce the size of the the spread and the and the quickness of the spread is to give us time right now we're bargaining for time but we don't know what the death rates are on this thing we just don't and what that means is that every attempt to slow the spread of the virus buys a day for people to develop vaccines they're going to be more effective in slowing or stopping the spread of the virus of becomes just another seasonal problem instead of becoming an overwhelming threat to western populations so this is it it is in this light it is important to recognize that when the federal government fails along this along these lines you can be absolutely disastrous there's a a piece from The New York Times that is just devastating talking about how the federal government did in fact blow the month the president trump was a president trump said very early on we're shutting down travel from China and a lot of people unless I'm not this is racist on this is terrible ten people were saying you have virus when buyers is racist you can see when my wrist is a drum said no we're sitting down travel that was a very good thing it was a very smart thing was the right thing to do the problem is that only buys you time because it turns out that some people are going to get in and any other problem so what did the federal government do with a month and president trump bought them by shutting down travel from from when the answers basically nothing according to Dr Helen chew infectious disease expert in Seattle she knew the United States and not have much time in late January the first confirmed American case of coronavirus have landed in her area critical questions need answers have been infected anyone else according to The New York Times was the deadly virus already working in other communities and spreading as luck would have a doctor to have a way to monitor the region for months as part of a regional research project into the flu she and a team of researchers have been collecting nasal swabs residents experiencing symptoms throughout the Puget Sound region three purpose the test for monitoring coronavirus they would need the support of state and federal officials but nearly everywhere Dr Jew turned officials repeatedly rejected the idea interviews and emails show even as weeks called by an average margin countries outside of China where the infection begin by February twenty fifth Dr Chu and her colleagues could not bear to wait any longer they began performing coronavirus test without government approval but came back in from the worst fear they quickly had a positive test from a local teenager with no recent travel history the corona virus had already established itself on American soil without anybody realizing it Dr she recalled thinking it must've been here this entire time is just everywhere already in fact officials later discovered through testing the virus had already contributed to the deaths of two people guns killed twenty more in the Seattle region over the following days federal and state officials said the flu study could not be repurposed because it didn't have explicit permission from research subjects labs are also not certified for clinical work well now Jeannie affable questions doctor should others argue there should be more flexibility in an emergency very much so many lives could be lost this is correct I mean like if you give permission for somebody to do a nasal swab for flow and that is repurposed enables one for coronavirus I honestly fail to see how any reasonable person would consider that a violation of privacy I nobody must know that I had grown up at night they're not gonna release your specific rotavirus task it just allows the state to do something on Monday night state regulators told them to stop testing altogether the failure to tap into the flu study detailed here for the first time was just one in a series of missed chances by the federal government to ensure more widespread testing during the early days of the outbreak when containment would've been easier instead local officials across the country were left to work in the dark as the crisis go undetected exponentially now so I think this is from so now I don't I don't think trump is monitoring local level task I think this is the fault of the massive regulatory bureaucracy that prevents people from doing reasonable things it turns out that the federal government well it is well placed to issue brought national guidelines is not well placed to deal with local testing that has to be done it turns out the local communities maybe the the fastest to react to the sort of thing right voluntary shut downs right now happening across the country with regard to major public events and those are happening on the local and state level without the federal government even doing anything it turns out the people who see federalism is the obstacle to this sort of thing they're doing it wrong local and state officials are more answerable to local populations and are in fact more likely to request the people do responsible things in fact is that porn was yesterday in the in the Jewish community basically every pore institute that I've heard of in my area meaning every big poor meal with big gatherings lots of kids those were basically shut down voluntarily without any guidance from the federal state or local officials is so the notion that the federal government needs to be running this thing in extraordinarily top down fashion the federal government should be coordinating all the officials letting them know sort of the minimum of what they expect but standing in the way of local officials doing what they need to do to Tampa's thing down is a completely different thing and that is a testament to the stupidity of bureaucracy generally

23rd International Meeting of National Mine Action

"So here we are at the urine stool in Geneva and we are speaking about the twenty thousand International Meeting of Mine Action National Directors and United Nations advisors so basically basically unmastered say the United Nations Mine Action Service in addition to Sarah Jerry. He's a researcher. From King's College in London has been looking at research approach into on the link between climate change and vulnerable populations affected by unexploded ordinance stuck in the ground and elsewhere. Welcome everybody body. I'm going to just dive in quickly. Going to Richard Baltimore's Program Manager for South Sudan with unmasks wretched. Tell me the main thrust of the meeting being here at the United Nations in Geneva what you can to achieve this week well simply putting the importance of mine action back on the map. Reminding people there's a problem exists exists around the world that is being addressed but it needs constant support to keep his going a mine-free world is achievable. We simply need to keep doing what we're doing. Just talk me through what the process. Who says you go into a community in south Sudan? Can you give me a particular example of an area is cleared recently. How you've held community? We're helping hundreds of communities Aziz every single day we're going into villages where mines were laid possibly thirty or forty years ago wet forests have grown up around them. People wonder into those forests in search of natural resources to cut wood together the forest vegetables and plan selves up working to render the ground safe and the the the reality is the poorest of the poor go into minefields knowing they all taking a risk. Studying Cambodia showed eighty five percent of mine victims victims. New they're in a minefield at the time. They had their accident but they also knew they were going to be hungry at night. So they take the wrist to go and get it and not not. de-mining is not an option. People will still take the risk and go into the minefields. We need clear those minds to make the land safe. Just start with a level playing field being out to grow awesome food. It is astonishing it comes down to having to live from day to day and Edwin fake money. If I can come to you know you were in Cambodia. Do you share richards. Experience experience. There is that what you were finding radio program officer unless now but you were working for a long time with U. N. D. P. The UN Development Program. Yes you actually see that people take risks risks. When they're hungry they will try to the forest to find food if they have piece of land contaminated? They will try to farm it so that they can grow the rice. It's basically subsistence isn't farming for everything there. And if they contact us the land and they will take measures to go in and see if they can actually get food. What's your message to the conference? Is this week. There is a need for us to address this theory's hope for example specifically for Kamalia. Two hundred twenty five is a goal for them. It can be achieved there to clear. All of known remaining landmines by twenty twenty-five how many we talking about. It's there still about nine hundred square kilometers of land mines but it was like a lot. I mean look look and you say twenty. twenty-five it is a lot but the government has actually committed themselves. You know Wait I left Komodo last year. They committed themselves that they will give ten percents counterpart funding to any international funds. Subtle coming for Mine Action and you be assumed that in the sense that last year we got ten percent of those about about two hundred thousand dollars last year from the Komo government which is a first big step for them taking responsibility for the problem that they have so there is progress and hopefully by two thousand twenty five and quickly back to Richard. You said that South Sudan continues to be contaminated by mines laid out decades ago but their goal is twenty twenty. He's seven four title Clearance Twenty Twenty Six if the current peace can hold if we can get access to all areas then. It's reasonable with current levels of funding as long as that maintained that we we will complete clearance by Twenty Twenty Six but ordinance will continue to appear for decades. There is still ordinance turning up across Western Europe that was fought over a hundred two years ago. Being ploughed up in the fields of Belgium reality of any conflict affected country but in the short term you need sustained funding to help South Sudan Dan. As many other countries need to decontaminate. You cannot come quickly to use Aruna Jerry from King's College London research only be looking at the link between climate the change and unexploded ordinance or nine months contamination. Can you tell me a bit about what you felt. I've been looking specifically at the conflict context. I've been looking at mine. Action in how they interrelate from post conflict peacebuilding framework and the climate. He's something that I've come into recently looking at how that is adding the levels. Abelson wonder ability because I was in Angola in September doing some work where they went national saint for Humanitarian De Mining on a research project. Nick and what we saw there was that once fields are cleared that the farmers there are grateful because clear and provide quite a lot of land. And what they're doing is resorting to the cotton slash methods of cultivation now. What that does the environment is? Just at the the time the fires in the Amazon on but in Angola there was second highest fires when the satellite team. It is dance so while we can clear and and the farmers were saying yes but the drought has impacted so yes. The farm has been returned to the farmers. But there are other you know beyond the mine in action and my take into that is can we incorporate as a sector. Can we bringing other lessons for these people when we out there with them saying once we've cleared the farm may be a certain sense of responsibility in the ways. We cultivate and all so integrating being innovative in our practice to dealing with communities to reduce their ability interesting. So what you're calling for really is for broader approach to helping communities once the areas made safe. So I don't know maybe I could turn to you. Seddon Threat Mitigation Officer with the Mine Action Service so he didn't a lot of work into be at the moment. I don't know how house access you have there. Because we've had talks recently here in Geneva for ongoing between opposing parties fighting outside Tripoli to the South how are you UH helping communities get safer and be free of this sort of scourge that must induce mentality among populations yes. There are two real issues to addressed. ICED firstly is that Libya has the world's largest uncontrolled ammunition stop palm. It is estimated that there were between one hundred fifty thousand two hundred thousand tonnes of uncontrolled control munitions across Libya. Also what we've seen recently in the fighting which broke out in southern Tripoli in April of last year is the expenditure ordinance and the threat posed by explosive remnants of war as increased and sadly many of the areas that were previously cleared of you exit have now been reconsolidated as a result. The current fighting some specific concerns that we've got amendment relates to some of the more complex munitions that The Libyan's require assistance to dispose off. And the previous Qaddafi regime for example bolts some quite complex missile systems that use talks ick propellants and these toxic propellants pose a very considerable threat to the environment went and also to the Libyan people which live close proximity to their storage depots so one of the projects that are mass. Lear initiated with support from the German government his to safely dispose of some of these very hazardous liquid propellants in Libya. Thank you Bob for that. Now I'm going to turn to leave because you're the Global Communications Honcho Four. Unless you could tell me how many countries on Mrs Operating in I'm what stays sort of information sharing between those officers who are involved in making community safe and and maybe what are the new ways that we using computers not officially intelligence to help us improve decontamination. Everywhere yeah the United Nations by action service we of nineteen programs in countries and territories around the world the UN as a whole is a little bit over thirty so the UN is. We're mine action. United Nations mine. Action has the Inter Agency Coordination Group for Mine Action which we helped to service and facilitate and that's really is an information exchange so and this meeting that we're at this week in Geneva Leyva where we have the national directors from all over the world from every mine affected country. I'm comes in. That's a big part of it is to share lessons learned best practices and the technology which is very important specifically with with improvised explosive devices. I mean we've been working for years in Afghanistan. We've seen a lot of devices that were used in Afghanistan that show up in other conflict zones specifically today's in Somalia we've seen stuff in Iraq. There's an innovation there. There's obviously on the dark web. People have access to figure out WHO's building. What and how are they building yet? What type of charges etc.? So you have to stay alert and you have to be following that. Obviously that's not something terribly new military out there in the world The United Nations. We don't don't particularly do intelligence service things but we are starting a database now in order to try to bring in academics and the governments that want to share that information in order that we make our people on the ground safer so that people would have some type of place to go to look at the type of devices I see they can do photos of directly and put it up in this database and then people can look at it from other parts of the world and say immediately. I've seen that. Don't touch that wire. I mean if you WanNa get it simple or this is probably how it is or the or the charter is going to be. You know. Two hundred meters. There's away or is that kind of thing and somebody mentioned earlier today when we were speaking about infrared Is that you know the technologies that exist out there. They are extremely deadly. It's a little bit different than a landmine. I'm where you're just using a metal detector and you're going along and something beeps and you're saying okay is that you know a pop top or is that something more dangerous when you deal with. ID's there three hundred sixty degrees so you don't know where they are And I mean there was just an attack recently in Afghanistan for example where somebody stuck a charge on the top of the roof of a car which killed the UN employees it was UNDP and that's an example of something which smit this new database that's going to be soft launch today at this is meeting with look into. So what specs do you need for your car roofs when the UN by vehicles because that's obviously a weakness right when a car sitting in traffic and somebody puts a bomb on the roof of of it and nobody thought about that but there are ways to know if there's devices on a car magnetic sensors that tell you. Something's been added this car and that's the kind of stuff that we need to know. The the United Nations need in order to keep all personnel. And all NGOs safe. It is frightening. You could be totally paranoid radio studio. They want to step foot outside. Because it's you know I've read the English patient I've read the some of the mindset of somebody who's laying mines encounters and things. I think my goodness this is just extraordinarily frightening writing and terrifying. And I'm Bob you're saying earlier the the threat of mines is not going away. Sadly the very effective asymmetric form of Attack Jack and the effectiveness of the ID as technology level is now very much understood by. The extremists are employing days. I mean sadly that knowledge is now the Leah's mentioned the information is disseminated now across the Internet. It is relatively easy now for people with no previous experience or training to acquire The knowledge from the web to make homemade explosives and to build quite sophisticated audience systems from scratch. You know with any external intervention. So so you're suggesting earlier Bob that it's not just a question of getting the minds out of the ground. It's a broader approach. Can you maybe explain what that means. Yes certainly insufficient really just to deal with the the explosive threat itself itself when one considers the threat posed by ideas. You really look at the the. ID system so it requires an effective whole of government approach. And that's very much based on not just the entity that's dealing with the explosive straight itself. But you got to look at the forensic organization that recovers evidence the analysis of that of the good police squirt this required to identify locate arrest and then process the perpetrators through the judicial system and Libya. This is happening. It is happening. Actually the The Mass Libya team has worked quite closely with Libyan authorities. And we've been trying to develop the forensic skills of the Criminal Investigation Department such that the Libyan police. I can do this themselves. Thank you very much. I think we've pretty much come to the end of this discussion very brief Look at what your and Mine Action Service is doing. It's been a delight to have you here but I'd love often any final messages or thoughts that you have before you plunge back into the dark recesses of the UN Pele here in Geneva and share information which is obviously why you're here simply that clearing clearing the wolves. Lamont problem is achievable. It's very very achievable. I started de-mining in nineteen ninety-three when the world talked about it being a thousand year problem problem now it down to single digits of years with realistic assessments. Credible Clarence methods. We're winning this fight. Unfortunately the fighters moved on on the problem is not being replaced by problem. The crux of this issue is ending grievances. If people want to find a way to kill each other's they will do so but in those countries where the wounds have healed such as Cambodia. We can go on and complete the Job Sarah Jerry Richard. Bulte Bob Seddon ugly really would yeah. Many things
