A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia
"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in

If you can't prove it, they can make your life a living hell for speaking out about it so not only that, but I feel like it's just been so ingrained in the history of humanity, where it's bits been passed on like generational where like a lot of the in a lot of homes, ellison, unlike the neighborhoods that I grew up in and. People all around me? Every single woman in my life had gone through some sort of experience like sexual harassment, experience, sexual trauma, and so when I was little, I actually thought that most women were just put on this planet just to go through these experiences like I I remember thinking when I was so young like hating being a woman because I'm like fuck, this is not fair that we have to put up with this. This and I thought that we had to put up with it like I really thought that there wasn't like I. had never met any woman that had never been through anything especially in like when their childhood, though like the talking about like a lot of this happened in our childhoods and I just thought everyone was tainted, and everyone was just meant to to be tainted, and we just had to put up with him. Stay silent. And live your lives as if nothing's wrong, but I always felt so. Tainted, I did and. It goes to show how women are treated in society and I've always will for a long time like I am terrified if I were to have Kennedy a daughter. I'm so scared of having Dr. is it so scary because you never know who is going to be could beat? It's not always stranger most of the time a lot of times. It's your family. Members trusted people that know. And that. Leads to another point I really want to. Really stress that if a child ever tells you comfortable around any adult at all, who believe them and don't be like. Don't be silly. Give them a hug and he goes up and do that Johann for this morning are. Absolutely take that seriously. Do not hang out with them. Like, we have a friend who has a daughter. She's really shy. She doesn't like hugging or kissing her nothing like fuck girl like stand your ground in. Don't get forced like if you don't WanNa, do it then good like I I'm just like hell. Yeah, I applaud that leg. Who encouraged that behavior? Absolutely I mean, but most parents is like all come on. What are? They see an innocent lens, but yeah I mean knowing that this is so common in like it happens often like we do have to protect her. Our girls and not just girls boys to for example is Isaac ever since he was. Like as young as I could like I had always asked him an always made that like number one priority like. please. Tell me if anyone has ever told you to touch them or someone has done anything to you or like if you were accidentally curious. I'm just like. Please please please. That has been my number. One biggest fucking fear is anything happening to my son because like I said, this should happen to be way too young. It was way I was I was way too? I literally have a laundry list of stories. I can tell you guys, and there is just it's it's. Too much. In is it too much to talk about those stories because you've the all these things just saying about how they you know. It's just a lot in life to talk about. The, to actually speak up and then when you do, speak up. There's a lot of consequences that happened from it. Yeah I can get into a little bit because I think it's more healing for me I think like to just stop like bottling all been because I did like open up about one instance on the podcast. Star from the youngest. I was I think it was like three or four. The first time that like as far back as I can remember when something like this happened to me and it was actually my babysitter's house. And my babysitter's bother was the one who had me like going to his pants and like. Him Up at inaudible dealers. He literally had me doing that and I. I remember like freezing and feeling like. I wanted to scream at because I could see my babysitter in the kitchen in..
"assault" Discussed on FiveThirtyEight Politics
"On the spectrum between. Hey this seems rock-solid even if you can't prove it to hey this seems totally out of left feel totally obviously fabricated. You know it's neither of those right. It's somewhere in the big mushy middle between being very credible and being not very credible and there's a whole big inbetween space there. Right and sexual assault reporting is very complicated. I mean I think that's also that's also what this comes down to I. I understand people's reactions saying like up. The left wing media wasn't reporting this. What's wrong with the left? Leaning media wasn't reporting this those criticisms coming from the far left of the Democratic Party or the right but when it comes down to it reporting sexual assault allegations is a weighty and complicated thing I think you read the stories from the news. The major newspapers about her about her story. And you do see some of the seams of the reporting and some of the conversations that are probably happening editorially about inconsistencies. Or whatever you know it's an it's an I do want to say here. What is troubling to activists or sexual assault advocate or victims of rape or sexual assault? Is that often? Americans interact with this dialogue via politics right via a partisan lens on something so we obviously saw the cavenaugh hearings right and we saw a huge gender split in polling between the way men and women viewed it between the Republicans and Democrats viewed it and Christine Blasi Ford was a quote unquote ideal victim. Right someone who appeared to be very earnest appeared to maybe not be in it for any personal gain a credible all this stuff right. There was a lot of talk about that. What a great witness terror read I think has has a more complicated background and I think we also have to talk about that. Which is that. The public does make these implicit judgments about people. And whether or not they're credible then you layer on the idea of politics and you've got the super soupy story that I do think is very different from the majority of sexual assault cases in the country which are not politicize. Their ordinary is a terrible word for it. But that's what it is. It's an ordinary phenomenon in America. Sexual violence so that's what I think it also makes it so difficult and journalistically. We have to take assault allegations carefully in part through them. Yeah there is a lot of political context to this as well in terms of women's beliefs. And so it's it's a complicated case. Put that way right. I do think the point that seems inevitable in kind of ballot to me right is it does make it clear that kind of liberals notion of okay well always believe the women right believe women. I mean that gets complicated clearly by by something like this. I mean that is a point where you can accuse left of. I think appropriately of like epoxy entered or they just have to modify that position going forward like does this act as some kind of turning point in how the left presents the metoo movement and talk about it in public baton. I mean look if you have. The Democratic nominee president accused of this behavior accused of sexual assault right and you have a lot of prominent liberal saying well. I'm GonNa vote for him anyway. I don't believe her or hey. She's not credible than that. Seems like it. It'd be potentially good turning point right you know whether it's a turning point two eight two. What place I don't know but like it seems like it would be it would have to have a more. I Dunno more complicated and nuanced discussion about how to proceed with stuff like this but yeah I mean you know I think there's also like the flip side whether people in the metoo movement who are like. I'm really mad about the situation. Because it is a messy accusation. Right with all types of political backstory tied up in it and that kind of makes a lot harder to deal with and so. I don't know I mean but yeah I mean it's in some ways the future of the me too movement I think is it more risk in some ways than than Joe Biden's candidacy. Why think galen was smart to drop in some stuff in our in our preparation channel that talked about the way? Women's groups were responding to this and sort of the report that the time's up group had sort of declined to help terror. Read in her case. There is an indication from within that movement itself that there is trepidation about getting involved with something like this because obviously there's discussion among people in those groups about what could this be risky could at risk our credibility with the broader movement would it get mired in to deepen in the messy world politics so it is yeah messy let me just turn a few things. One is if there is a okay. What is your default position? When an allegation surfaces and that default position for me too movement or democratic elected officials shifts from believe women to everyone should get a chance to be heard and all claim should be seriously investigated. What's important to realize that if that shift happens it will be a shift having to do with allegations surfacing in the context of politics and the reason that's important is there are reasons why allegations might service and politics that don't exist in everyday life false allegations in everyday. Life are exceedingly rare rare to the point where it's like. It's not relieving. We're talking about really in the context of politics that's a little different and so it's somewhat unique circumstances. The other thing is saying I'm still going to vote for Biden isn't inherently a contradiction of the believe women message. I was listening to the Political Gabfest and Emily Bazin was saying like wait a second as a feminist and as a woman. I get to be kind of real politics to like just because I'm a feminist doesn't mean I don't get to like make hard edged political decisions and if that decision is oh yeah I'm GonNa vote for the guy with Kinda one complicated allegation over the guy with two thousand allegations. That's not a refutation of a belief women message. Certainly they're going going back to the start of this though. I do think like there are a lot of people on the left right now. Saying things that people on the right were saying during the cavanaugh hearings and getting CH- those people right we're getting shouted down and now people on the left. Many of whom were doing the shouting down. Were are saying the same things that doesn't mean that the people on the right during Cavanaugh. Were operating in good faith. I think most of them weren't right. And it doesn't mean people are operating faith. Now I think mostly nobody operates that extremely pessimistic US. Any final thoughts were wrapping up here. I think the honest consideration that most democratic voters will make public the privacy of their own home or with the people that are closest to you. When they're talking about this is their consideration will be. Let's assume all of its true which is worse trump or biden which is what Michael was basically saying and I think the reality of it is a lot of Democrats will probably still vote for Biden. Because you know and then I and I think that there's there's a sat very vocal active people who are essentially party activists who will be who'll be litigating this online for a very long time but I think a lot of Americans. I mean poll showed that Americans are super disenchanted by politics and politicians in particular so a lot of people are kind of like. They're all scummy like I'll just vote for the one I think is less scummy. Which again was the dynamic of the two thousand sixteen election to if you looked at historically disliked candidates right trump wins amongst voters who disliked. Both I think twenty sixteen also affects the way that the news media handles it kind of affects the discourse that liberals have with the news media. We also see a lot of okay. I want to go into another story. Election where things are casting shadows and doubts and uncertainties for different right with Hillary Clinton in emails. You have something which was kind of proven but relatively minor with Biden. Something that if true would be very serious but is unproven may be hard to ever prove either way but still the notion of lingering and that kind of phraseology is something that I think. Democrats are wary of the way the media covers so there might become like more assertive pushback. Against how the is covering sourcing. Okay now it's going to be twenty sixteen all over again right. And that's an advantage to than his kind of worth.

"If there's another guy a person be who also has allegations levelled against him and in fact many more than the one allegation against me then surely that the allegations against the other persons should be taken more seriously or more time should be spent looking at those allegations. That is just a very very difficult Thing too I think publicly argue even if that sentiment might be based on the reality that it isn't exactly the same what he's being accused of is not the same of course as what. President trump has been accused of so MJ. Before I let you you have done so much of our reporting at CNN on these me too issues since the beginning of the metoo movement particularly with political figures. Can you just take us behind the curtain? A little bit. I mean this is a really hard assignment. And you're talking to these women who have in many cases in this one. I included really graphic really specific allegations that they're making and it's really to prove as a reporter and these candidates they are relying on us as journalists. I mean there's no FBI investigation. There's no you know official legal or law enforcement investigation. It's you know pressure but you know I mean that's what the former vice president said on more than one occasion in his interview this morning and he's right so just real quick talk about what that's like as a reporter investigating that it is very very difficult and this story is very very difficult. You're right that there is the pressure as there should be on reporters and media outlets to play a very important role in vetting. These claims looking for corroboration if there is any and presenting those facts and presenting it clearly so that viewers and readers are clear on what it is. We know what it is. We don't know and raising sort of the appropriate questions based on what we do know and what we don't know and I think with this allegation as is often the case. I think there's just so much we don't know and I think there are so many people who are in world who worked for Joe Biden at the time and I know Dan. Are you talked about this on air that on Capitol Hill and people who have spent time there no that often lawmakers have known reputation and what has been striking about the former Biden? Aides that we have interviewed in? This process is that they have been so unequivocal in in sort of the same way. That Biden was himself in denying this allegation that one. He is just not that kind of person and two that they never ever heard about any kind of sexual harassment. Is You let alone sexual assault so we have that and then on the other side of course? We have the people as we've discussed. Who HAVE CORROBORATED TAR. Read Story to different extents. So there's this competing the people who speak about Joe Biden. And how they know him plus obviously. Joe Biden's denial himself and then the tar read allegation and the people who say that. She told them about the alleged assault. And I mean this. This really is just the difficulty of reporting on this kind of story that you were saying. It's just impossible to feel like you're ever going to get to a point where there is an answer and a correct answer and you. Just don't get there. I think actually most of the time. It's it's impossible to establish that there is some kind of proof that emerges and I think that is why there's going to be just so much. Focus on the whole documentation National Archives University of Delaware issue. Going forward well. Mj We're really lucky to have you at CNN to be on the front lines doing this to be the one digging using your giant brain to investigate But also use the compassion that you know those of us. Who are your friends? Know that you have so thank you for that. Thank you for explaining. Thank you for taking the time. I know it's incredibly busy day for you and a special thanks to our listeners..

"assault" Discussed on The Psych Central Show
"We're back with Dr Amy L. S. and Doctor Joan Cooke discussing male survivors of sexual abuse and assault. Let's shift gears over to treatments? What are some common treatment themes for male survivors and foremost who are considering treatment? It really starts with defining trauma and traumatisation. So as I said a lot of men do not label their experiences as trauma. That word carries a lot of the seemingly apply it towards combat trauma or an accident and they tend to minimize experiences of unwanted sexual experiences so just starting with identifying it and then also kind of determining the impact of that on their life how the trauma has affected their relationships their work their symptoms of depression and anxiety et CETERA. As we're talking about it starts to also play into defining and understanding masculinity so really understanding how someone to find their own masculinity how they define it in their particular cultural influences and then what their goals are around that and debunking these misconceptions or Miss About Mao survivors could be a real focus of treatment. And then obviously it's treatment like any other treatment working on a lot of the other CO morbid symptoms. A lot of men will present with depression and anxiety instead of the typical symptoms that we see in traumatisation like post traumatic stress disorder. And so it just really boils down to focusing on depression anxiety. How things are playing out in every day hearing now and tailoring our interventions to make sure that they are considering gender-based principles. I think that people understand post traumatic stress disorder when it comes to war because we all acknowledge that war is awful. Nobody wants to go to war. We never want to go to war again. It it sort of has a good branding message rate. War is bad and it makes you sad whereas sexual assault. Most people want to have A healthy sex life and they've been traumatized sexually so I imagine that that causes some confusion. I think that it would be very very difficult to have something that you like hurt you. We are sexual beings so it's a desire that most people have so I can imagine all of those things working together and then of course you take in all of the barriers and misconceptions. I'm starting to get a really good idea of how difficult this can be. And how much work that you've had to put into narrow down treatments that work and that men respond to? Is this. What you found in your work? I think you're hitting it spot. On in terms of some of the sexual consideration you're nailing some other treatment themes A lot of men will come in questioning their sexual orientation or their gender identity because of the experiences that have happened for them and also exploring how to have a healthy sex life so sometimes both the like sexual activity or hyper sexuality. Sometimes we see Hypo sexualities so a lot of sex. Strive or difficulties with maintaining interaction as June had earlier so it is common for male survivors to come in and question and cope with some of these issues on a somewhat regular basis and part of what helps having that peer support knowing. Oh you too and not alone so I think really. The pure base support is what we have found really is aimed at healing aside from peer support. Which we've discussed and going to a therapist. What are some professional and community resources for men with histories of sexual abuse and assault? Well there quite a number of professional and community resources. Some of our favorites. There's a wonderful nonprofit organization. It's been around for at least twenty five years. It's called male survivor. It's based out of New York City. It provides online free. Discussion groups for survivors and family members chat rooms a therapist directory. There's another wonderful organization called men healing which is based out of Utah and they host weekends of healing. They call them and they're sort of retreats where you can go and meet other survivors and they're led by professionals certainly within the APA. Amy and I have been very active in division fifty six which is the division of trauma psychology and on their website. We developed free web based resources for male survivors and four psychologists who are looking to work with survivors clinically and research wise to shift gears a little bit along the same lines. What are some resources for family members and friends to help male sexual abuse survivors on those websites? Men Healing male survivor. They do have discussion forums and fact sheets that family members can go to and read about and see. I also like the. Va has what's called a national center for PTSD and on their. They have again free fact sheets web resources and they have incredible videos called about face and they feature veterans with a range of traumas combat military sexual trauma etcetera and family members. Talking about the pain that they have experienced and the pathways to their healing. Some of the veterans who have a range of trauma experiences don't receive the support and care that they deserve and there need understandably their family members don't understand or if they're jacked up with their symptoms and they're angry all the time. Those family members can be traumatized as well so sometimes. It's not as easy for the veterans to explain themselves to their friends and family members. And it's not too easy for their family members to come in and talk to a psychologist like me and amy and and receive psycho education and support so sometimes these videos can be really helpful so sometimes I will tell the veterans that I work with. Ask Your family family member. They're willing to sit privately and confines of their own home and watch some of these videos and see some of the family members talk about their experiences. And sometimes it's a little little easier to be more empathic to someone else than it is to be. Empathic Cheer Own lopped One Joan. That is so true. We see that in substance abuse. We see that in mental illness. I am not surprised to hear how powerful peer support is and I'm not surprised to hear how powerful it is to meet with other people outside of your friends and family to get the support you need because this is big. This is a big thing. And you you. And Amy have both taught me so much. Thank you thank you for everything. I really really appreciate it. You being a space exactly. We are in awe and extremely grateful. Thank you for helping us. Shed light on this very deserving and marginalized population. Does my pleasure. Amy I understand that you and Joan are running a study. Can you give us the details and where to find the study? Yes absolutely we have a large study going on right now where we're recruiting folks who are male identifying actual abuse survivors and we're going to be randomized them to groups of their peers led by Malley peers. Who have punters like thirty to forty hours of training? And it's six one and a half hour sessions that participants can go into so check out our website. It's www dot peers for men's health. Study DOT COM. We are actively recruiting through twenty twenty one and we will just be constantly running groups over and over and over again as we get more people and even if you're a professional there's our contact information on there were happy to console talk etc. You have people.

Why did Uber Release the safety report in the first place right lift hasn't done it? Why did uber feel it needed to or do to do it? Yeah sure so. I think you know there's probably the outer reason the reason the thing that hoover keeps saying. Look we're trying to make this the sort information public. There's not really a lot of information on on any modes of transportation. At least it's sexual assault physical assault that are not filed with the police. So this is kind of a move to urge other organizations to do so. I think you know another sort of Patchett reason. Though is that you know you read the the newspaper. or or whatever format correct and see infant of people being sexually assaulted and Uber's are lifts or or ride sharing and there's sort of a nebulous feeling that there's lack have safety on these platforms. So I think the idea is to get in front of it and play look. We're trying to do something in by publishing information urge others in the industry to help tackle accolade. Mike Obviously Uber particularly. And you've written a book about the company. Uber particularly does have a lot more safety features now both for writers and more checking drivers than it did say two two years ago or three years ago or certainly five years ago from your perspective. Is it enough right now. Is Uber where it should be in terms of checking drivers or are there things it could do you still that it should do cry. Where do I think they have come? Significant significant progress in the past two years specifically under were Dara has taken over just because safety In terms of really basic features to to attract How people are in cars and how they can help them was never really prioritised under your travel for a very long time and I think that's just you know you could chalk that up to a number of things growth or just the things that are happening inside the company so I will say that they've added a number of different features? That said I think this report actually underscored where a lot of the safety issues were and that was for riders as well as for drivers you know there were significant number of people who attacks drivers and you have to imagine you know if you take twenty or thirty different riders basically anyone who decides take a ride share the day. You never know who's getting into your car. So they're they're experimenting things with things like recording video audio recording but that brings up a whole other slew privacy issues. I still think they're going to be like trying under figure out what else they can do without creating a whole other backlash around invading People's privacy inside of the car. One of the pushes been for fingerprinting right of driver's perspective. Drivers is is that just never going to fly because I know Uber likes to onboard. Drivers very very quickly is. Is that the main reason. They're not doing it and can't technology solve that pretty fast. I I know this is the this has been a problem. Honestly since you know for years basically throughout the whole history buber their whole thing was look we have to provide liquidity and the driver ever base. Meaning get people in the classroom as fast as possible and there was a whole cottage industry around background checks. That came up that way. But the problem is they don't do the same fingerprint. Based background checks that the TLC or taxi drivers are required to undergo. There's debate on whether that is standard. That has any more safer at least from people in the industry but I think a lot of folks would say the more you add on there the better but there's been no real sign that they're that they're actually going to cave on that just because because it does take quite a bit more Jacci longer period of time. The one thing I will say is they are doing rolling background checks now so rather than just you know passing your initial background around checking the beginning You have to sort of have them continuously go. So if you commit a felony and in the meantime department approved You can get booted off the platform. So we'll play that at least some improvement and hoover does say it's it's taken tens of thousands of drivers off. I wonder if you mentioned the the TLC taxi limousine commission's am I correct in saying particularly in big cities like New York San Francisco. We don't really have good numbers on how many assaults have occurred within city. LICENSED CABS correct. That's correct I and I think that is the that's the if you WanNa give credit in something like this you know lifts doesn't have this out there and you know the taxi industry has never put a report like this out there unless you search for criminal filings or police reports and and this report showed a lot of reports. Don't go report it to the to the police so you you know. It's hard to really gauge. What Uber Stats are compared to many other different parts of the industry and hopefully we'll see a little bit more transparency on my final question for you there is a general option in criminology? That the number in general society that the number of sexual assaults and rapes are incredibly under reported. Did is it fair to assume then that when we hear this number from Uber that they are similar being under reported not by not not knocking over but just that drivers and riders are under reporting sales. No totally I think that this is part of the difficulty in any sort of study. Any sort of like methodology at scale is is look. It's very difficult for the victims to come forward on these incidents and you know the Uber has said they don't WanNA report them to police because of they wanted to allow victims to sort of do that so but even getting people to really flesh that out and say this is something that happened is difficult so it would not surprise me at all. It's a number actually much higher but This is probably the first step in trying to get at least a more realistic number over a period of time. I think this is really just the beginning if others follow suit Mike is tech reporter for the New York The Times and author of super pumped the battle Uber. Thank you so much for joining us.

US moved to block domestic carriers and infrastructure providers from using wall way parts. Something that's been kind of one part national security and one part trade negotiation leverage. It's also a major escalation in tensions between the two countries and has a better chance of sticking the last time China tried to itself off Western tech namely because its own homegrown solutions have just gotten so much more effective or remains to be seen though is if China also views this a bit like the. US views wall way and if it will give in if it can get concessions on trade and finally today it has been nearly a year since Amazon bailed albums plan to bring part of its massive H. Q.. Project to long island city after receiving vocal pushback from some local officials and residents who objected to billions of dollars dollars in related tax incentives from New York City New York state now some of those critics including representative Alexandria Cossio Cortez are claiming vindication. After Amazon announced it will lease out space in Manhattan's Hudson yards office park and employ around fifteen hundred people all without tax incentives. So three things to know. First Amazon's Hudson yards yards. Plans are not a replacement for Long Island City where twenty five thousand people had been slated to work to a quick reminder. That Amazon could have easily proceeded with Long Island when city. It's decision was more about her feelings than it was about. Elected official roadblocks and three as CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin noted today there is some real irony in progressive politicians claiming victory here when Amazon is leasing space and employing people in wealthy Manhattan instead of Working Class Long Island city.

We have assault rifle. This is a noun from nineteen seventy to to any of various automatic or semiautomatic rifles with large capacity magazines designed for military use and next is automatic. No assault weapon. I just saw the word automatic so I said that assault weapon is a noun from nineteen seventy-three any the of various automatic or semiautomatic firearms. Especially the one. We just read assault rifle next. We have a say A. S. A. Y. Could also be assay. I think hold on essay or assay yet. Both both Emphasis are correct. This is the first form. It is a noun from the fourteenth century. One is archaic and it has the Synonyms uh-huh trial and attempt number two examination and determination as to characteristics as weight measure or quality. Three three analysis as of an or or drug to determine the presence absence or quantity of one or more components also also a test used in this analysis for a substance to be assayed or assayed also the tabulated result of assaying. There's an I N G there and this is from anglo-french SI- A. S. S. A. I. OR ES SAI and there's more at the word essay with an e. Now we have the second form of assay say or say it is a verb Let's see yes. It is a verb from the fourteenth century. We are going to start with the transitive definitions. mm-hmm excuse me while I burp and scratch my lip. Number one we have these synonyms try and attempt to a to to analyze as an owner for one or more specific components to be to judge. The worth of synonym is estimate or estimate mate. Actually now we have the in transitive definition. It is to prove up up in an essay to prove up in an essay. Say or essay and Sayer is a noun next. We have asked A. S. S. E. D.. I'm curious to read with says. It is an adverb from nineteen twenty. Three it is often vulgar. Could've guessed that and we have these synonym of which is the third form of the word ass. Yes and it is used in combination as in sorry state of affairs And that reminds me. I actually thought about mentioning joining this earlier. Somewhere in my brain but I will say it here. There was a funny comic. I saw from X.. Cade was it s que. Si No ex- ex- K.. The CD DOT COM. I think I got the letters right. and it was one of the one of the comics that actually stuck with me It was just he said I like to change the hyphenation when I'm talking about things so if somebody said Oh that's a small ashkar he would change. The hyphenation sends a word at least in the way he says it and said and he would say that's a small asker and I I do that to this day either usually just in my brain but sometimes all say it out loud So if you were to combine the word ass with something so in this case Instead of being a sorry asked state of affairs it would be a sorry Asked state of affairs. That's a bad example. Though what was the other example we saw fancy ass. Well there's nothing to the rest of that sentence so never mind. We are going to move onto assegai acid guy. I think that's how it's pronounced A. S. S. E. G. A. I. OR OR A S S A G A. This is a noun from sixteen hundred a slender hardwood spear or light. JAVELINS usually tipped with iron and used in southern Africa. I think it'd be cool to see a picture of this one so we might have to put that on instagram. This is ultimately from the Arabic. Doc I'll show Gaya which means the Assegai and his from Al Which means the Plus Berber B. E. R. BE E R with a capital b at the front Oh wait I don't know. Oh Berber that's That must be a language. It's the Berber word. Chagai Which means spear and then when you combine those together thus beer it becomes the Assegai? I guess we are going to move onto the word assemblage assemblage. As I butcher the pronunciation it is a noun from sixteen ninety one. A collection of persons is or things synonym is gathering as in magic the assemblage number. Two the act of assembling this state of being gene assembled avengers make an assemblage of US three a the artistic composition Russian made from scraps junk and odds and ends as of paper cloth wood stone or metal three. Be the art of making assemblages assemblages and it looks like the pronunciation. Guide has two ways let's see assemblage or Asim Blige. ooh That's a fancy way to say it awesome lodge. I wonder if that's the the artistic one three artistic composition that would make sense. Do do people really say the word awesome badge okay we are going to move onto assemblage assembly gist or awesome blodget I literally the it has both of those. Those are both correct and man. I'M GONNA have to start saying awesome. Blige every time I say the word assemblage which which is probably eight times a day this is a noun again. We're talking about awesome largest or assembly. Gist this is a noun from nineteen sixty five. An artist artist. Who Specializes in assemblages? Man That's GonNa that blew my mind next. We have the word assemble. It is a verb from the thirteenth century the transitive definitions are I as usual one to bring together as in a particular place or for a particular purpose to to fit together the parts of now we have the in transitive transitive definition. It means to meet together convene is a synonym and another one is the word. Gather and and Let's see the etymology says. This is anglo-french awesome rare from the Latin similary which is from ad plus similar S. I M. U. L. Symbol which means together and there's more at the same S. a. m. e.. We are going to do one more for this episode. The last word on the page actually is mostly on the next page. So we're going to skip it. We're not going to skip it. We're just going to save it for later. Assembler is the last word for this episode A. S. S. e. m. b. l. e. r.. This is a noun from sixteen sixteen one one that assembles symbols to a computer program that Automatically Converts Instructions Written in Assembly language into machine language edge. I don't know what assembly language is. And to be we have these synonyms assembly language. I I I'm curious what it is. I haven't heard of that it's probably some programming codeine language. Possibly all right. What is the word of the episode while I have to pick awesome blog? Because I really don't think I've ever heard that before and that was fascinating. Thank you very much for listening I will be having some some guests readers soon In early December I got a guy who recorded a couple episodes on his own which I still have to listen to.

"Book is really the uh colonel of the messages really if you've been assaulted and not only sexual assault but if you've been through a trauma and if you've been through an experience like that where you feel like man i really did some things and i hate hate myself for it. No matter how bad it's gotten whatever you've been through you can always make choices to change and become another way and you can take take those bad experiences and the worst parts of yourself and let them teach you something just as an example. I was a horrible person back then and i'm a completely different person now now that is a way of disowning who i once was and trying to separate myself from something that's actually true about me right and so i think you know a lot of it is about about trying to like you know notice the shame that's in that and be able to hold that and let it go a little bit and just kind of be able to say like yeah. I did some some horrible things and i feel bad about it and i'm trying now and i'm doing my best and it's okay that i have these aspects of myself that i'm not so comfortable with because because i'm a human being and to ask yourself to make sure you're not bullshitting yourself. How am i going about making sure that i'm not that person anymore. Where am i doing yeah because my getting help. Am i reading books attending workshops. Am i finding set of friends that are more sensitive and keep me. He grounded disowned that person and pretend that never happened. You have nothing that you can learn from them right because that person that you once were is the person that's going to say you know. How does this look like what it was then like you have to be able to that that person just to again sort of as a metaphor that person that i hate and fear or whatever i need to be able to have that integrated into my body so that i know that i'm making different choices now that i'm not that person again and if i just try to forget got all about it. I'm just gonna keep making the same mistakes all over again. The thing that that i've discovered as as i've dealt with shame opened up to people the very things i thought would drive them away the things i thought that i needed to hide to be loved were very things that bonded meter those people because they loved me for my vulnerability and they were able to see past that and see something that i couldn't even see in myself. Which was that i with trying and i think we all love someone who's trying. It's why homer is such a beloved character. He's you know he's an idiot. He's selfish but he he tries and i think we forget that and i think that's one of your points to in the you're talking about the the me too movement and just kind of canceling people's lives rather than saying. What can we take from what let's communicate with each other. You know we're not saying that. Person should have consequences but let's examine the root causes of how this culture is becoming this way yeah absolutely and you know <hes> when i heard the interview that you did on the podcast. I survivor which i quote from in the book. That was what i really appreciated about your your point. View is really this nuanced sense of like ok. If something bad is happening. It's i call it. Monster is like when we we sort of pick someone and we say okay. This person is a monster they're horrible person and if we punish them and cancel them and get them fired and push them off into a deep dark corner somewhere that we never have to look at again we've solved the problem and that's not the case that scapegoating right. It's not it's refusing to look at how this is a systemic issue that we all participate and and because we can still have compassion and communicate with them while they're in prison. Yes you know that we can make sure a psychologist visits them. You know as our your support groups going..
