The Australian Wastewater Treatment Plant Powered By Leftover Beer
"When lockdown hit much of the world in March forcing bars and restaurants to close a lot of them were huge supplies of food and booze. They couldn't sell here New York City where bars are just put in big orders for Saint Patrick's Day. They released able to fulfil delivery and takeout orders for several weeks. Many bars added entire cases of beer at steep discount to their delivery menus. It was actually pretty awesome. But in Australia, they got even more creative in the state of South Australia local breweries sent millions of leaders of stale beer to the Glenn l wastewater treatment plants just west of Adelaide and that beer has been converted into renewable energy to power the plants quoting CNN the plant mixes organic industrial waste with sewage sludge to produce biogas, which is then turned into electricity to power. The whole facility usually generates enough bio-gas provide about eighty percent of its energy needs. But the recent influx of beer has boosted its energy generation to new levels reaching six hundred, fifty, four megawatt hours in a single month Lisa Hannigan manager of production treatment at Sa Water, said in a statement beer worked. Well for the plants digesters, hat said referring to the large sealed concrete tanks where sewage sludge is heated in an oxygen free environment and decomposed to produce methane rich bio gas. The booze is high calorific value. The amount of heat released during combustion makes perfect for anaerobic digestion process she added and quotes and add further said that the three hundred thousand, some odd cubic meters of bio gas being generated month now is enough to power twelve hundred houses and is also a joker saying in the statement quotes honorably, our thirsty digesters have been doing their bit for the environment by drinking themselves silly and was such a horrific diet. It's no wonder they produce so much gas and quotes. And this is just the latest example of people creatively innovating on what was previously thought of as waste beer is particularly difficult to dispose of in any environmentally friendly way. So finding a sustainable use for it like this is beyond awesome and I hope there is a way to make a continue even when breweries don't have as much extra beer line around as they did this past spring.

So used to saying how are you and just getting good it's like the usual flow. Yes. How are you? Good how are you good and then we move on but actually liked that you said that you're not doing well mother I like they are not doing well but to your point, it does kind of open up an actual. Exchange of feeling. And it surprises people. Like Oh okay. Interesting. Goodbye. I don't have the tools for on the later like I'm scared and I'm out. If, your new welcome to the show, my name is Krista and I'm Lindsay and we started almost thirty a few years ago when we were almost thirty and it was the at that time where. a big transition lots happening lots of questions and fears, and just again, kind of this feeling of like not being well. Yeah. And being just it's funny too like I've noticed the threat and I don't know if it was marked groves or another interview we did recently but someone else was saying like, yeah. When I was thirty shit really went down, it feels like such a consistent theme, not only in our lives as being transformational but in the interviews that we have where people just have these lake yet extremely profound. Moments or like coming to Jesus times when they turn when they're going through their Saturn return and if you feel that way, it's kind of it's like a a truth that you can no longer ignore. Yes keeps knocking. On the door finally opens and you know what? What we saw you know in our late twenties early thirties was like happy to do with relationships and our health and our careers and just looking at what was working, what wasn't and being very honest with ourselves which sounds like, yeah, that's what we do. But it's it wasn't for me. There was not being honest with myself in so many ways and it was actually really painful to finally be honest with myself, but the work is worth it. Still going on. And then you know a few years go by you get some some listeners than your back. You're back in it and you're depressed. Yeah I was like I watched love on the spectrum. Seen It on my list it is. I have not binged some binged I. Remember the last time I've been something was insecure when I was saying when I like few years ago. Watch the whole season it is on real I've heard and it was a perfect because I really needed to cry and it was such a great impetus for my crying evening. It was so beautiful. The families are so unreal. So love on the spectrum is about it's an Australian show. It's an Australian dating show in quotes based out of are based out of Australia somewhere and these people on the spectrum just finding love and dating in relationships and it was it's just so beautiful like it is not. Patronizing it is like powerful and just loving and like Vaughn and everyone just has fun like, no, it was just so beautiful but then it was hardly it's heartbreaking at times to. Such great. I don't know just usually ice. I. Shy away from shows like that I'm like I'm gonNA feel too much coming up get really emotional when I was like let's do this. Good. I love not looks for that in terms of just them bringing what is Normal for someone on the spectrum to be dating and having just these real life and real time experiences in moments and making it.

Gene-Altered Squid Could Be The Next Lab Rats
"Okay Nell. Greenfieldboyce last year, you visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts. Tell me about it. What was it like? So it's sort of beautiful location right there on the coast of Massachusetts and you go inside. In you know, they took me to this room full of kind of burgling aquariums everywhere and. All of our exotic animals, the guy giving me, the tour was Brett Grassy and his official title. There is manager of Cephalopod operations. It's amazing title. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight PAJAMAS, squids. These ones are native to Australia. We've got our octopus church, which is the pygmy zebra octopus, their native to Nicaragua small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than table. A. Table Grape. Nice. Yes. So they're they're looking at all kinds of squid and octopus is to try to find ones that you are easy to take care of that reproduce. quickly, that are going to be good to be sort of like the next lab rat and their work involves everything from the very latest high tech kind of gene editing tools to just like a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor. Why rocks? Well, they use them to make like little habitats in the tanks but they also use them to way down some of the lids. So octopuses are notorious for being able to kind of escape out of their enclosures. I've heard of this in aquariums. Octopus have been known to climb out and wonder around. Yeah, they're clever. You know. So when I visited Bret told me, there were roughly around three thousand cephalopods under their care there. But honestly walking around and looking in the tanks, you can hardly see any because they like to hide in those rocks and you know other little things, little containers. Keepers put in their tanks at one point read opened up this one plastic container and reached into the water and pulled out this little like like terra cotta pot and inside was this California two spot octopus. She's right down in there. Because see her eyeball, fairly see her. Yeah, and so basically, this is a kind of a common Dan either they're gonNA find rocks or. Some sort of basically dark enclosure sometimes. So this was a female octopus sitting on her eggs, and while we were looking at her, she's sort of shot out some water at us. She's of trying to skirt some water here. She thinks that I'm going to give some food or she's just trying to say you know I'm sitting in here taking care of my eggs and You know come back another time so now. Now. If you had a podcast called nell spies and octopus I would listen to it will we would have a lot to talk about because cephalopods are pretty crazy i. mean they have these sophisticated brains, they can solve puzzles, they can change their skin color like an instant. They can re-grow arms, they travel using jet propulsion. I. Mean. Some people have said they are as close to aliens living on Earth as we've got. that. is so cool. Honestly, we do a whole episode just about cephalopods, but I WANNA go back to this research question about using them as model organisms. So why CEPHALOPODS in particular? Well. It's all those odd features that makes them interesting to biologists I. Mean, for example, I mentioned their brains, you know the they're clearly sophisticated problem solvers, but their brains just look completely different from our own like they showed me one in a glass vial that looked almost like a triangle shape and you know there's brains that look like doughnuts that wrap around the Esophagus, you know at the same time, we know that some of their brain chemistry. Chemistry has got to be somewhat similar to ours because there have been experiments at how octopuses react to the drug ecstasy. Right? It seems to make them like little more friendly and cuddly to. So you know it's it's just fascinating to look at these creatures that are on the one hand. So different and on the one hand similar and studying, them could help scientists see what's necessary and what's not for being able to perform you know amazing mental feats. Feats like the ones people can do, and apparently you know some cephalopods seem
Solving the mental load update
"When we first spoke about the mental load on this podcast, there was a fringe cartoon cold. You should've asked that was going viral. It explained the mental load with such clarity that when I first saw it, my reaction was fury. I wanted to. Shift to the ground. It showed a woman with a baby and a hapless male partner who was kind, but needed to be told how to help and it so familiar. So common. So exasperating and so profoundly unfair. Journalist, Tracey spicer new. What I was talking about. It was an absolute lightbulb moment for me, I sir, Clementine, Ford's facebook page. I share with everyone and I knew that went viral swear words and it happened in the time when I realized that my life with my wonderful husband who's fifty fifty with the housework fifty, fifty with the childcare, but it was just the little things. I'm always the one who organizes school holiday care or who takes the time to look after the kids or rangers everyone's Christmas presents or birthday present in his extended family and my extended family. So after reading that I, decided to go on strike in the household so he had to do it drove him Berserk. He said this is crazy. Such little school holiday cared Australia. I said now you know my pain. Jenny talk about the mental load in your life. I think when I saw the catching was like, oh, no added that to my mental learn. About. How often I think about the mental load? That's Jenny Leong amp in New South Wales Parliament I was very lucky and I consider it to be like that. My partner was able to access paid parental leave. So he was the primary care for a significant amount of time and in that case he did take the mental Lloyd and a lot of that was then there that the what's interesting is once we're both Both. Back at work where the default position falls back and the expectation of WHO's supposed to know those things to me. Then you feel like part of it is also all of my being bad feminist because of that because I think then adds another level to it to how much you should make a deal of this or not I noticed the gender dynamic with my. Friends that are in. Relationships, they're both men they quite comfortably into stereotypes, gender roles that old without all of the challenges and the. Doctor Leah. Repent on a lecturer in sociology at the University of, Melbourne. She racist as domestic labor, and this idea of the mental load is her field of expertise. I'm going to start and say a little bit controversial. Say That everyone actually carries the mental load. So some portion of your mental load may go to thinking about your career. Some portion of it may go to thinking about your family and some portion of it may be going to thinking about your personal life and the differences, the balance across men and women. So you could imagine men are spending a lot more of their mental load thinking about how do I advance my career thinking about the day to day challenges of work. That is a very different mental load than who is going to pick up the child from daycare. or WHO's GonNa Organize School holidays or who's doing the housework wise. House a mass. And one leads to economic outcome, career mobility and one is just unpaid sometimes recognized sometimes not recognized labor. And I think that's really the difference. How do we shift the ratio? Definitely does seat more with women the. Yeah, I, K-. So we're all in agreement about that. Absolutely. Absolutely, the balance in terms of unpaid in terms of thinking about the experience is disproportionately shouldered by women. Yes. Absolutely. Once, you get your head around the idea of the mental load. You start seeing it everywhere in the lives of your friends, colleagues, your mother, your self. It. Happens to women in all walks of life and age and six urology, but it seems to hit hardest when there's a baby. So. Now, we have a name for the mental load. But. The problem is naming, it doesn't make it go away. As I was sobbing thinking. I used to be able to manage employees teams. And now I'm too overwhelmed to even manage a grocery list. And more importantly. How did I become the default for every single child care and household tasks for my family? It wasn't supposed to happen to me. This is a road ski shades La, and she's written a book called Fairplay, which is all about fairly distributing the mental load aves marriage nearly ended when her husband center, it takes saying. I'm surprised you didn't get blueberries. She was furious at the assumption that she had gone from high powered lawyer to full-time Default Blueberry shepper. Eight. Knew she had to do something about it? She says, there are a few ways to look the mental load. My favorite was a term from nineteen eighty-seven and American sociologist named Arlene Kaplan. Daniels. coined a term called invisible work. In why like that term so much is because that's the only one that had a modicum of a solution in it. Because I kept thinking to myself. Maybe. Maybe if I can make. Visible all the invisible things I was doing from my home and family for my husband, Seth? Maybe then he would value what I did.

Bytes and Pieces: Americas Chinese-Tech Attack
"As the heads of Amazon Alphabet facebook and apple were being berated in Congress, last month how many competitors did facebook ended up copying we called it Amazon heroin. Why does bny steel content from honest businesses tiktok the goofy funny video sharing app was having an altogether better time of it. Golden. Do. Not, so much anymore we're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. Thursday the trump. Issued a deadline of September twentieth for ending all American transactions bite dense to talks parent company as well as with. China's second most valuable, Tech Company ten cent with Para companies based in China apps like Tiktok we chat and others are significant threats to personal data of American citizens not to mention tools for CCP content censorship. China's government called the executive orders a nakedly hegemonic? act. By dense is looking for a fire sale buyer for some of its international Tiktok operations and it seems Microsoft is checking pockets. But the administration's zeal is likely to harm America's interests as well as the Chinese tech champions. We knew a band was in the offing at is still everyone by surprise Thompson booth is the economists technology and business editor I. Think most people were expecting president trump to wait until a a TIKTOK deal had gone through to reach a resolution on whether there would be a ban on not and it's also quite surprised that he's gone after we chat and tencent. And the reaction from the two companies has been quite strong. Bite dance has said that it's GonNa fight the executive orders in court. Well, as you say, there had been some expectations around Tiktok by dense. Why? Why was ten cents included in the end? Well there isn't a certain unfortunate logic to this. If you're going to say that you're concerned about Tiktok on national security and espionage grounds, you sort of have to be consistent and we chat has about nine hundred, million daily users in the US and the executive order basically bans people from making transactions on we chat which it's a sort of super APP. That is really widely used in in China and Chinese diaspora what is the trump administration's rationale for these orders? Do you think so the stated reason from the administration is the Chinese government is spying on Americans and hear the evidence is Circumstantial. So the worry is that Chinese spy agencies have stolen massive consumer data sets from various companies over the past ten years. So from Mariot Equifax anthem health insurance TIKTOK has been downloaded two billion times. It's the mother of data sets. There is no hard evidence that bite dance would ever cooperate in such an endeavor but the idea is that if you've got engineers with access to Tiktok by Don, service than the government could lean on them to get the information out. So that's the stated reason from the trump administration. Think that's enough for the American government to threaten to ban the APP. I gather from investors case to buy dance at the real reason is a level playing field issue as much as the spying concern. So one gathered that in particular. Mark, Zuckerberg of facebook has been outlining pointing out to trump that take talk is wildly successful in the US and yet facebook google than allowed into China. It's sort of the idea of why should tech top able to come to compete with us when we can't do so in the other direction? And as things stand now, Microsoft is the evidence suitor for for Tiktok operations at least in a in a few countries what's in it for them? I think for Microsoft is really stunning opportunity on their part. So bite dance reckons that the TIKTOK US asset is worth in the realm of two hundred billion dollars oversee the pudding, very generous estimate on that. So the price being talked about now that Microsoft might pay and that it's on the block for more life fifteen, forty billion. So it's just a real steel in terms of the price. I'm talking to the hottest social media property out there right now it's uses incredibly highly engaged and Microsoft you out of stroke gets into territory of the social, the digital media giants, and it gets a massive data set on teenagers daters the new oil. Attack, there is lots of sketches in the Microsoft just is kind of getting out of its core competence that it won't really know how to get and keep the teenagers. The other risk for Microsoft is just kind getting dragged into the Mile Strom of content moderation and hate speech and all this kind of stuff that attracts more political scrutiny and then regulatory scrutiny having said that Microsoft is regarded as a really high quality acquirer of businesses it generally tends to do it quite well. Microsoft. CEO Sachin Adela notably is currently probably regarded as the best big taxi. Oh so now we've got this deadline of September twentieth what happens between now and then Firstly, Microsoft going to carry on negotiating to try and buy Tiktok we're seeing more suitors for Tiktok on the scene over the weekend the reports that twitter is definitely interested I know that Netflix's on the coolest the venture capital backers of Bite Don's possibly even Disney I do think the likeliest thing is still the Microsoft probably strikes a deal just because it's got the deepest pockets will also be really interesting to see whether Microsoft manages to get more markets at. The moment, it's only going for the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. It's not buying the UK having the actual executive order from trump will create more uncertainty around Tiktok and there's no doubt that it is already harming the asset. It's no joke said, the clock really is taking on that deal and what about ten cents? It's unclear. What ten cents is going to do it's unlikely to try and sell international we chat as by dance is doing with Tiktok. It's possible that it could come up with some kind of structure to address. US concerns. It's a complete unknown how tencent now is going to react but I guess the question is, is the right way for America to get its concerns addressed with a problem with. It so far as that feels completely sort of ad hoc on his whim. Really undermines investor confidence in the US is the place of the rule of law. And there are alternatives and I think there's three main steps that we would advocate versus to strengthen the vetting procedure that's already in place. So the Committee on foreign investment in the US surface that probes should stop properly and quickly. So in the case of Tiktok and musically the US APP that bike dance bought therefore triggering this whole situation, they took two years to start looking at it and then did it in a rush which guarantees Robert chaotic ad, hoc situation. And overwhelmingly, the US needs to tighten up its own data privacy regime. So the reason that tiktok is such. A worry in terms of spying theoretically is that US firms, your facebook's Google's and so on her normalized that the slurping just masses of personal data from Americans. So what's required is a strong federal data privacy law. The third element is displayed to you can do in. Terms of requiring transparency into the Algorithms being used auditing code that's coming in from overseas for now, the question for those two billion or so people who've downloaded tiktok whether their favourite platforms going to survive or whether the current chaotic procedure that has affected, the company will mean it. It's rivals take it over and teens leave. Thanks very much for your time Tamsin it's been a pleasure.
Dr. Will Bulsiewicz On Optimizing Your Microbiome (In A Pandemic)
"Great. The only thing that would be better is if we were in the same room, but that's not possible. I was hoping I was holding out hope that we would make this happen in person, but I couldn't wait any longer. So Nice to nice to see you through the computer screen. It's good to see you too, I, wish I wish we were together in person and I look forward to someday. You know hanging out, we'll do it. We'll do it as soon as soon as this lifts will get you out into the studio and and we'll go around to because there's no way that we can explore. Everything that I wanNA talk to you about today, we're only going to scratch the surface but. This is long overdue. So supersized. Where you're gonNA take this, I have great confidence. Well. The first thing I want to say is that. I spent the month of. December in Australia and I spent quite a bit of time with our mutual friends, Simon Hill and every time I got together with him. He's like you gotTa me Dr. Be you gotTa, you gotTa be the best and I know that you've been on his podcast. I think five times at this point. So I went back and listen to all of those episodes, and well, there's a lot. There's so much good information there. So like I said, we're only going to scratch the surface today, and if people are left wanting more which I know they will be, they can go and check out Simon's excellent podcast plant proof, which is really that was that was kind of a launch point for you initially, correct. Yeah, I had. A. Head. Ten thousand followers going into that podcast. And doubled that in a month. and. It went viral I, mean, that's still the most downloaded episode that he's ever had in over. Two hundred fifty thousand downloads for him. Yeah. That's great. So many things to talk about. I think an interesting launching off point for this would be. To. Kind of contextualized your work with what's going on currently in this pandemic era that we're all navigating through. And what I've been thinking about lately, and I'm interested in your thoughts on. is how we square this. You know. Need to socially distance and sanitizer environments and kind of cloister ourselves from other human beings and restrict our exposure to a variety of environments with this paramount need to increase our bio-diversity, not just with the foods that were eating. But with the environments that we visit and the people that we interact with like these two things are at odds, the importance of bio-diversity maximizing that with this need to kind of over plans everything at the moments. Yeah. I feel like health is never been as important as it is right now. There is a direct connection between your gut microbiome and the strength of your immune system. and. For that reason it. It becomes imperative that we take care of nurture a healthy gut microbiome and. You know the the the thing that stands out to me rich is. Yes. Like excessive cleanliness. Sterilizing environment not being allowed to socialize and connect with humans like all those over there. But to me, the most powerful influence is the stress. Stress. Stress. Is. Something that is affecting all of us. I mean to you know we are living through a moment of collective. Stress were all forced to take this on. There's no avoiding it. And that actually has an impact on our gut microbial. And drives us to this place where we all sort of have different ways that we cope and deal with that stress. And for many, it's turned to unhealthy habits. And that includes unhealthy food. And in many cases alcohol.
Letters Q&R: How Much Context Do We Really Need?
"Start with the question Fr Thompson in Australia Hey. Guys I'm Tamsin from Kalinga in Australia. Now that we know that there's a lot of interpretation involved in understanding what the lead is trying to say is this still a role for devotional reading in our lives? Can I pick up my Bible and just read a few S.'s and meditate on them and pray about them? And get value out of that without having to do a really intense Bible study look commentaries and expert opinions and cultural stuff. Yes. Thompson the the very practical question. Yeah I thought it'd be good to kind of start with us because we have done a lot of really focused work on method and putting on our our learning and study hats. So to speak you know when we read the letters so I think it is good to back up and to say that study Mo- intense study mode is, of course, not the only way to engage your Bible I. Think it's an important way that It's important that we grow in, but it's it's not the only way and actually I always appreciate this question even though I'm. A Bible Nerd, I'm guessing you do to. Chris. Because our temperament is already given to study the Bible really intense way but it's important to say out loud that that's not the only way. Yeah. You didn't engage the Bible. Yeah. I think what I really like about this question is that it emphasizes integrating scripture indoor lives in a devotional way. So I think yeah. Maybe some people tend too much towards studying not integration but I think that like devoted study and devoted response to scripture have to go hand-in-hand. So I, do like that a lot about this question that. Emphasizes that may be the Holy Spirit could be working through multiple ways as we read scripture. The big thing about not seeing Bible or the estimate letters as a grab bag you know of of inspirational one liners I was not trying to say that you shouldn't look for amazing sentences and paragraphs that meme and memorize them in the letters i. think that's actually a really great idea i. do it myself. But the point is is when we are due when we are reading and studying in that mode to the neglect of reading a whole letter as a whole or at least trying to do some mirror reading, which is looking for the situational background, the letters to I think then that sorta like the carts drive in the Horse Yeah. where, what I want to get out of the letter is does not a charitable way to say it but it's my desires what's driving the agenda for the letter as opposed to letting the authors agenda and what they're trying to say, let let that drive how I read engage with it. So both modes are important that what you're saying I really affirm that too. Yeah both mountains. But yeah, like being aware of the whole literary context and knowing that to really understand communication the more context we have the better the threat. Yeah. That's just like a natural principle cam occasion if it's ancient communication than that requires a little more work, right? Like if I don't understand what you say I can just ask you. Yeah you're right here. But if we don't understand what Paul says, we have to figure out some other ways to get contact cats right. I WanNa know the genealogy of the word. Devotional. The way to describe a way of reading the Bible a devote devotional time or devotional reading. Yeah. That is interesting temps a new use that phrase never lots of people use it before and I think it refers to a certain way of reading the Bible that has developed I think in Europe and the West after the printing press namely sitting by yourself in the morning reading the Bible, not in mode but just in. Listening for something personal from. God. About ten to twenty minute chunks. Yeah. Yeah. Pervert early in the morning with Cup of Tea Right? Is that does the yeah I think devotional means do that's probably yeah how I understand too and there's a good side of that that maybe is rooted in the word of the word devote devoting our whole selves to God but I don't know if that's where that comes from it really is. That reflective listening but I think the dangerous side of that is that sometimes if we're doing devotional reading, we're just really quick to jump to response or application without asking what was happening in the original letter or what what the context was it all yeah. Yeah. I think the basic way is we're not trying to replace one mode of studying the Bible with another way of reading like what we're saying is we need. A. Balance. Yeah, and as you balance a more contextual reading of the letters with a more personal integrated, you said earlier devotional reading I think what you find is your own personal takeaways or the one liners that you do get you know from the test letters they don't become less meaningful. They become more meaningful. Yeah. Because you actually know the the context of the paragraph of wherever secure. So that kind of thing. So thanks.

Thank you that means so much to me. Yeah, absolutely, also I want to check in because in addition to use servicing your online community and your patience. Your family you've been very vocal about this has had first-hand experiences with Cova nineteen and we're gonNA talk about that. But I just WANNA check it on a human human level. How're you doing during these times? You know I mean it's crazy times everybody. My son and daughter for those of you who follow me they actually contracted co bid on. I mean really it was about a week after we wanted to quarantine. So we all went to quarantine from school Friday, the thirteenth, and then maybe seven to ten days later my daughter got sick cough fever search you have a little trouble breathing. Thought well, this can't be Kovic she's been in quarantine right? We haven't been in contact anybody in as far as I knew there was nobody at school who had had covid Right, around that time when quarantine was happening, I had a little bit of a sore throat and a headache nothing major but I did my usual kind of functional. Medicine Integrative Medicine dosing that I do and I get sick and I teach families. My husband had something similar but we we were fine then a week after Kenzi got sick she recovered ten days fever cough you know not feeling well little bit alot ish tonight a similar. She got maybe about ninety four, ninety, five percents but that's literally on Day ten. It was like the switch flipped she she bounced back and she was completely like nothing ever happened. A few days later, my son starts to get a fever and I'm like, oh no, it's going on here. Right at the time. Remember early in the days of the pandemic testing was really not available I mean that available. Right so but then even more. So I managed to get a swab and do swab my child, which is not fun experience and the Senate to quest four days later it came back negative. Okay. Maybe she caught something. Weird, right Then when Bodey start to get, he had a fever and stomach ache his tummy was hurting him so much that was his symptom and that in the fever little bit a sore throat and so I thought and even back then the early days remember we we know so much more about covid nineteen than we did back in. February march and remember this is March back in the early days we still have so much word learn right but abdominal pain was kind of maybe a symptom maybe not subdue might. So I'm thinking maybe he's got a stomach flu but in the back of my mind, I, think, okay this has to be Govan. So he he then so developing abdominal pain fever really bad headache a little bit of a cough. He started seeing things and hearing things, which is really frightening He sought a wall. Yeah. He had auditory visual hallucinations. He heard voices in his room. He would see the wall moving in and out and kind of scary people in front of him. Here's H-. You really mean people saying I mean he he said he was embarrassed to tell but really bad words right? Like you know words you wouldn't use in polite conversation and so and then he got a rash on his face and pink guys, right Thank goodness back. Then the really weren't reports of this Kawasaki Like Disease Right. Multi-system. Inflammatory Syndrome associate with children. Because if I had known about this phenomena I think I would even more freaked out than I already was right but his oxygen levels dropping he did go to about eighty eight percent at which time I did bring him to the ER. Now I was low dam up with all the supplements that I had researched. You know for Kobe nineteen both preventatively am for support. Active Illness and I fully one hundred percents. We're GONNA talk about some of the things that I did but that the interventions that I was able to do for him through the through the research really helped him to bounce back very quickly.
Daria Gavrilova on finding out what makes her happy
"Daria Gavrilova Dario Welcome or should I say Yeah Dasha that's about it. Thanks. Thanks for having me. I really excited to have a chat We've been in the lockdown so. As like yes. Sure. Chat. You guys probably not a lot of people to be honest right now not seeing too many people and. Also. Look at ten spicer were trying to be even Loris say. Because we are still allowed to go to training, but we're just being careful. So we create our own Babul within this bobble. There's another bubble it's just like. Crazy but that's okay. It seems like Australia's taking the quarantine current Ivar. So so so seriously because you were out of lockdown on your back in lockdown yet because our K. went up again. So they're probably GONNA keep going up for the loss while before gone back down but. Yet, wherein stage three right now is Toria somewhat every state. So even though you've been quarantined and all that I mean, have you actually stop training at all during this whole lockdown quarantine thing or have you not really been able to train as much? The first lockdown were lucky. We got all the gym equipment and. Hope back home and I just did my own workouts but I had like everything I had barbells ahead. You know all the heavy stuff. The chain I had the what black. Though I was able to train almost as normal, and we're allowed to go outside and do sessions outside and then yet. We're allowed to get back on the tennis court on a few weeks later. So that was the case and now. With tennis they restrictions noticed straight. So we're able to still come to the tennis and train. What's your thoughts though in when you will play a tournament because I know we have a scheduled tentatively starting from August onward where do you plan to go if anywhere? Well. I don't know to be on the I still have no idea I think many people due to illness. It's like the two options either starting in the in America or go straight to Europe. But I haven't decided. Let's talk about if. Everything everything still up in the air like ribs the. If it's all happening or not. So I'll just decide as light as possible. I think the one thing that I've taken from this whole quarantine whether or not the WTO starting again is just we know nothing that's all I know is that we know nothing there's nothing that's concrete. There's nothing written in stone at the moment though are. Able to come to the US like if you were to leave tomorrow for tournament, if there was a tournament, Mar, would you be able to head allows way? I'll will have to have an exemption and how hard is that to get well, we apply for an exemption to go overseas So we I think we're allowed to come see West but the de Straton government doesn't really want us to travel. So we need to have an exemption and we all applied for it and we still haven't had the answer but well, for example, arena already that shit got. An exemption, a world's intense. So quarantine what have you been up to staying sane I know not just training surely there's been a lot of new hobbies fun things to get into out of TIKTOK FU talks. I don't dance take talks 'cause I can't but I just. Make Fun of myself in posted anyway because it looks hilarious what else Well, I'm always been a bit like artsy artsy. I. I've been painting a bit I actually bought. Some real clay and been making like clay pieces and going to stadium than firing them of Maddie. Few they're all on my instagram few on the hub. And you know playing with the puppy and smashing natural lakes. You know I don raid much. But I've just that like rating Lena's book I was always intrigued on like how everything works in China how how does how does the federation work and how Cana tennis player come through and like she was the first one to come through and yeah, it's actually a real good book. It's awesome. Have your. Wedding plans taken a bit of a pause because of this whole thing. Yeah. We actually decided pretty early decided lack marsh that registered a postponed until next year

They learned that you needed to be improved needed to be addressed so that it started was as prepared as it could be for for a pandemic. So comes in the the first one in two thousand and six eight actually hired actors to pretend to be people coming off. An international flight in that slot ended up being. You know a plague ship so to speak with people on board who were ill so they i. They manage pretended to manage this of people and then the scenario extended suggesting that the illness had been moved into the community and there was community transmission so very similar. Frankly they helped me right. Yeah exactly what happened? This time slightly. Different Disease. Influenza pandemic influenza Very similar but what they found as you'd expect in an exercise like this is. I found issues that needed to be addressed to who had responsibility for for particular areas. You know making sure ahead enough. Ppa a whole bunch of little things that needed to be done.

Yes other the role of the exercises throughout that period was really to test the planning that had been put in place at that point in time and as a result of that to try and then identify whether or not they were any gaps or weaknesses in. How Australia would respond to a plan. So there really were a culmination of a lot of planning and preparation that going on for a number of us and then we saw the actual exercises themselves which revealed further information to help us prepare for the event of a widespread panic but two thousand and six thousand eight the period when before that went Tony.

Tony Abbott took it quite seriously and we over a period in the early two thousands through to the late two thousands we. I created a stride is first pandemic plan for influenza. That was the Australian Health. Management plans for pandemic influenza knows the ampy that was created in two thousand six and then later that year we Australia ran and stride. You're on made everyone So this is the Commonwealth states even down to the lowest levels of government. We ran a huge exodus called. Come with Satyam precisely to take what we can david logical evidence instead so we're looking for H. Is like changes immigration period to check to send your time is that did was essentially simulate. The outbreak of an influenza pandemic Kind of you and then spread through the so well what the same as code ninety s size to. It was very similar. You know the same kind of things that will say the last few weeks people wearing masks concerns about people coming in on planes shot against schools etc. They really bring that exercise in two thousand and six and then what happened was some of the things. They realized from that exercises. I needed to Beta so two years later. In two thousand there in another exercise another national level exercise.
"australia" Discussed on Buddhist Society of Western Australia
"Hello Everybody Nice that. You're watching to be as w a Buddhist Society of Western Australia as Youtube Channel and makes me really happy to know that people are watching Buddhist teachings here on the Youtube where so much stuff that you could be watching you chose to watch to some trauma and just any thinking of that. All these people watching these videos and makes me really happy. So thank you for joining us. My name is junior and I am currently staying here in Albany in little place together with another among Moto you may have seen yesterday on the on the on the channel and we are living here together peacefully and doing meditation and the Buddha Society of Western Australia. He's trying to set up a new place here for amongst to live and practice and I moved here about three weeks ago. I came here and one of the people drove me here in the car. They asked me federal. Are you not afraid of the corona virus and I said and my immediate response? I said No. I'm not afraid because the mind cannot get corona virus only two body can get corona violence because as monks and also as bookish today people and also you don't have to be booed as we develop our minds and find a happy place where we can dwell inside. We got your meditation so meditation. There's no need to be afraid of anything so today I will give you a little short talk. Maybe ten minutes. We'll see we'll see how it goes and then after that we will do a thirty minute meditation about thirty minutes together and I'm a safe. He was a bit weird. I'm just talking to this camera. Motives sitting behind it but Let's see so just Just stopped around move at government of Western Australia where we are. They started closing down to regions between between cities. So then I now. I can't easily move back to the honesty anymore where I live and it just thinking. Now I'm SORTA stuck here and also Western Australia itself also closed borders around. You stuck there as well and I was planning to visit my parents in in amongst time from now. I haven't seen them for years and I was looking forward to seeing them again and now that can't happen property so I felt a bit. Yeah I felt sort of. I couldn't do what I want it so I felt a bit stuck in a corner and I realized as many people now on the on the in the world who are stuck. They're stuck maybe in a country where they don't want to be because of all the measures against Corona virus a maybe stuck inside their house in quarantine stock in a city and that sounds really negative to be stuck but I realized that many good meditations. I had an insights where all when I was stuck. So when you're stuck as as a good opportunity to let go because why because when you're stuck you can't go anywhere you can't go left you can't go ride conjure up down so there's only one thing to do was just let go and make peace with the situation. So that's why I think it's a beautiful thing now in the world. All the people are stuck in their houses because it gives us a great opportunity to make peace and let go of all the things that are outside and worrying us and Israel minded me of the little quote by Christian monkey called the Desert Fathers. And he said stay in your cell and your cell will teach you everything and the cell is like an old Christian word for for meditation or prayer room for the Christian monks and I think what this Trying to say was if you set limits you stay inside your room you will have to learn to live with that and then to let go of everything that is outside of that and and then you will. That will teach you everything that you need to know and also reminds me a little story. I don't know where this comes from our wedding as somebody thought it before but I just made it up but this is the story of the the postman and the angry dog postman comes to deliver a message to a letter to somebody's house. I mean just walks up the house. No worries opens up the gate and outcomes this angry dog jumping at one of these big rottweilers. You know with these. We call her on with all these spikes and he chased after the postmenopausal and got scared and run. Run Away and run through. All the streets left the ride run everywhere. He true true is packages at the dog. Trying to get rid of the dog but the dog kept chasing after him and deposed still come running and he was just just quick enough to keep away from the dog. The dog he never never lost any distance between him and the dog but then he took a turn and what was there. He turned into a dead way in the back of the alley. That was a big wall to the right of him. That was a big wall to the left of him. A big wall below him solid concrete and he couldn't climb up. You couldn't go left. It couldn't go right. He couldn't go anywhere so he turned around. And face the dog and the Dog Game Adam and jock dog jumped on and the dead moment to postmen. He'd let go. There was nothing he could do. He was GONNA be bitten by the dog all destroying the packages. All the running had no use so he let go. Let me be bitten by the dog victim in the face and ran off and that story that story the postman is a good Buddhist. It's like a Buddha and the dog is similarly for suffering suffering chases us around and we tried to get rid of it. We tried to run away from it. We throw stuff at it rerun. Someday we'll get stuck and we have to face the reality and then all we can do that. Go so this letting go also is what we do in meditation to try and find peace and accept our our lives as they are and the situations we are in. Now we're stuck inside quarantine or not and and sometimes your mind can do really funny things going stuck in a situation and I remember one time I was living at a layperson and in the Netherlands where I'm from and we did a lot of Buddhist friends did what is called Meditation Flesh Mall. Don't know if you know what a flash mob is but it's not a people come together and do something unexpected in a public place so we were doing. We went to the biggest train station in the Netherlands which is in the city of lot of train stations. All the train network from the Netherlands. They all come together in that city. It's really busy station. And there's all these messages all the time of train delays people running around and shops and bill boys and everything and we decided to do meditation there too. So people about these. So unexpected group. Meditation in the middle of the hall and this was to be about twenty minutes. I think I can't remember exactly what I do. Remember getting down there when we started the group meditation on the hard concrete. All the loud messages going around and I thought how this is. GonNa be worse meditation ever. I can't sit here. I don't have a cushion. It's hard floor and it's allowed. How can meditate here so when the leader off of US talk thinking? What's called Sunday when he rung a bell? I come meditate here. Why am I even try? I don't have to try. I like oh I'm going to happen. Is A mind go really peaceful? Because I wasn't trying to do anything and it got so piece. I didn't couldn't even feel my body anymore. All I noticed us just happy. Mind far off in the distance. I heard took very far corner of the hall. I could hear something. So meditated for twenty minutes like that and just to keep it a bit short for the talk. I went back home and I looked up video that they made of it. And what was the song that I could hear? Very far away was actually a lady on High Hughes who rent right in front of me so she was the right could be just an arm's length away so that's the kind of thing that your mind can do. If you let go hang out of your minds can do as well. When you let go meditation you can get these beautiful piece and withdraw from the world so hope that gives you song. Spirit or some thoughts to reflect upon. So let's do some meditation together and we have to stop the video hair. Resume it again because the camera can only record thirty minutes. So I'll see you opted reset.

"I think the Australian fires though open people's eyes Ziyang. Okay this is really important. We have to start addressing this immediately because we are now seeing the direct impacts of our inaction. Yeah Wow okay. So I think we're GONNA end here because honestly it's innately like listening to this podcast you're going to hear these types of conversations again because that's just it is what we're talking about. It's the most important issue of of our time so we have the video about the Australian fires. We're going to continue to make more videos about this topic and sort of navigate this conversation with you so let us know what you think using hash takes. podcast talked to us about climate. Change in general. How you talk to people about it your opinions on it? What this conversation is maybe sparked for you because it is a complex conversation in no way? Do I think I have the answers and just sort of like piecing things together from what I've read and just trying to think about this as much as possible. Yeah I agree. Let us know I'm interested in. How people's in especially in different countries perceive higher governments receive it? How it's even these fires as a specific example? How is that viewed from a global perspective because obviously Canadians made me feel somewhat connected to Australians? Oh my gosh remember. We went to Australia. I I and I was so like you fly so so far. Twenty hours of ten years ago we flew to L. A.. And then you find so far a lot of diesel fuel you got off the plane and you're like I'm in Canada handed about warm. I was so frustrated. I fly this four. I want this. I want some sort of culture shock. But they're different but yeah very similar architecture of the Honda Hondas and my Toronto reared experience so I do think we are connected to Australia. Similar like sort of like recent history. Uh well thank you guys for eliciting as always and we will talk to you next week for another podcast say..
"australia" Discussed on Sidenote
"It's smaller Mahler than the state of California so in order for our country to have like movement and really get behind politicians or get behind things. It's it is easier because the numbers are smaller. You hear about countries like Sweden Norway being progressive. There's not nearly as many people there so it's easier to sort of have grassroots movements. Really take over. I think one thing that America America as an outsider is important to talk about is it is so huge not only geographically but yeah like three hundred four hundred million people all and there's cetera largest country in the world. Sometimes we look at China and India and go. They're huge. They have a billion people. But then you go wait. America's not that far behind that there's so many people so many different cultural backgrounds so much intertwined into American culture that makes people have such different opinions and all of Canada's provinces offenses are run by the federal government in a way where the federal government has a lot more power than in America in America. Every time go a different state. It's like you're entering a different country. And so so when they all come together to vote or like make a decision as a country. It's really challenging because what's happening in. Oklahoma is so different than what's happening in California but they're all falling under the umbrella of Americans and I think that is like a big issue whereas in Australia again it's a smaller population New Zealand. Like I really think that Australia can figure out what their small population away to really hopefully curb desk and work together. And I think this will be the energy that they need to do it because it is so oh devastating it is so thinking about Canada. It's interesting because I do think Canadians. Australians similar We define ourselves as Canadians. I don't really really define myself as an Ontario in I mean in some ways I'm sure people look Alberta look at BC and look at Newfoundland say like their distinct which they are of course is different. Cultural backgrounds. Sounds interesting geographic. Whatever but as a Canadian I'm Canadian whereas I think in America you often? If you're asked where you're from you say your state I need Americans. They said our tidiane I'm like where's that I don't have any idea that is. I'm assuming it's America's No one else in the world have you ever are traveling leading. People will be like. Oh I'm from Canada. I'm from Belgium. Then they'll be like I'm from Chicago one other thing. I was thinking about these fires because part of me every now now and then. It's unfortunate to see that certain animals become poster animals right so we we see polar bears. We see panda bears. We see Koalas. Yeah and they're often not the biggest problem like some of them are but they're using the biggest problem or there may not be the most threat so like what. I'm trying to say the most threat to them. They may not be at. How do I say this does not like on the verge of extinction necessarily compared to other animals? That might be ugly that we don't get to see little marsupial the talks but then at times like like this. I'm like no use the qualas. 'cause in proportion okay. A billion animals have died but they said like when it was five hundred billion five hundred million had died this at eight thousand Kuala died. That's a way different number like eight thousand qualities. Nothing compared to five hundred million but those videos have made exactly i. This is very interesting because it does make me think about how when we talk about climate change and we do research about climate change. Now it's true something like a bill saying a billion animals died. It's like your brain can't grasp a can't have an emotional reaction to that. That's what we need to do is create emotional schnorr reactions in people to make a change. That's just how revolved animals. We don't take in literally. The scientific part of your brain. Gene is not linked to the emotional part of your brain whereas the emotional part of your brain which actually leads to change is more linked to storytelling. It's linked to we all know what it's linked to that experience experience you have with other people. Those qualities are an amazing example of an emotion. You probably felt that led to you wanting to make a change so is much easier to care Arab out. Some sort of seems a little more human like Ben an aunt. Say if you're like a one hundred million aunt died and even if you saw them it's probably not the same impact because Koalas have is. That seemed like human like they have. Yeah they remind like watching them. It's like there's qualities that remind me of Ernie Dog. Yeah but there is but there is something something to be said. I think about a focus that happened for too long on polar bears with climate change. I do think that like Greenpeace on a lot of these places decided to focus on that for that reason they probably did the research. We did. Not Okay this emotional reaction is really important and I. I do think that at a certain point it got to we. Have you have to be really careful. Because if you do focus too much on one thing a lot of other the nuance aunts and the complexity of all these issues can get lost. And you couldn't then maybe give ammunition to the other side in a sense. You know what does I can't. I don't know what you mean by ammunition but it does leans too heavily into one simple explanation when this is actually really complex and there's so many different species that are human in line are using human lives and like I just have read like two particular cases where people talked about the focus on polar bears taking away from the fact the complexity of the issue and sort of making people go. Oh Save the polar bears like Roy is like what does that even sort of like mean and because it is interesting. You're right like planet earth that ends with a polar bear swimming into oblivion and the middle of the ocean. It's impactful like you see it that that narrative they've for climate change has existed for about ten years. And so I just think this Koala thing is important for right now. Such a conversation out is is important for right now but we also have to figure like we can't just fully rely on it and make sure that we are always one step ahead of the the negative criticism or are people who are denying climate. Change right and it's so much more than just just hearing stories so I was listening to a hidden brain podcast about habits. The other day and one thing that stood out to me was that they were talking about smoking habits and how much money. They've put in different countries into educational programs or even like eating vegetables. These kind of things like and realizing that what worked most to stop people from smoking wasn't educating people wasn't putting pictures on a cigarette cigarette packs to show you how bad it was for you. Teaching people how bad it was didn't change it. What made it more effective was banning it from inside not allowing you to smoke in certain L.? Making it making me literally have to walk ten feet this. This is why I'm so scared for climate change because climate change. It's it's inconvenient. And how do we have to think about that because if you think about the smoking example. Yeah if people are don't care about their own health and I'm not trying to like shade smokers too hard here. I just mean if if the risk of your own mortality death isn't enough to change people and make them stop smoking. Why would the risk of nature and animals and other humans on this planet Senate do it? Yeah so I think we need to start. Of course we should be educating is impactful especially if people who already care about it of course these this image is GonNa make a difference but will it change. I don't know I think what needs to happen is how do we build systems that allow us to make it. Incan what is more inconvenient. Like how do we stop doing things. That are contributing to climate change. So whether that's meat consumption. How do we make it less convenient how we make it more? Well that's that's why this sort of trend of fast food is like really great at least happening. Canada like these DASU. Oh beyond me. Burgers is making it convenient and tasty for you eat something a meat alternative people. Oh I think WanNa feel good about it if it's easy and and we've talked about this before net flex was provided people away to pay for things and not illegally stream in the same way it was more more convenient. It was the right price it was convenient. You didn't have to go through all these loops to pay for cable. That cost one hundred dollars so there are now you're saying people will download last which yeah that's what they said like the Netflix streaming companies have actually created a much different system that existed before that finally people go okay. You know what. I'm willing to pay ten dollars a month for all this contest. So carbon tax is a good example of of sort of doing this from a political to a company standpoint like doctors important. It's trying to make it inconvenient. The economic inconvenience. That was another thing for cigarettes. Tax On cigarettes actually also decreased people's likelihood of smoking. So it's why I think a lot of people when having these conversations about climate climate change it's like we talk about obviously. There's things that we can do in our personal lives but we do know that it's up to politicians incorporations because if you think about about that if we WANNA make inconvenient for people to say by red meat that's a challenge economically it's like okay. Then then they're going to have to. It'd be some sort of regulation where we tax yes. There's a lot of layers to those industries in people who work in them and it just being complicated yes and fast. It's like every we sort of like you hear about lobbying from corporations because they don't they wanNA continue profits for their shareholders and a lot of the green new deal and moving forward about how we change. Climate change is about the government having more power over corporations to do things like that to make things inconvenient for the consumer and for the company to potentially Ashley make less money for the good of the planet. I think that is what we need to have happened with. My research is that we need something like the green new deal which involves regulation and so I think that is interesting because it relates to that cigarette thing we need to make it inconvenient for people to consume and purchase certain things and I think the scary part is that that's GonNa come with a potential shift an economics which I think is. That's where we're at right now in history is how is that not going to play out and you think that I can't tell if you think that do I think what do you think that what I'm saying like science. Yeah I think it's I. I think it's both I think we have to look too big institutions and corporations and governments in the ways that they're regulated as well as our personal actions because our personal actions while maybe I'm like minimal on the side of how things get done as a society. We decide which things were interested in which by I know. It's a complex relationship because obviously not everyone. Everyone can afford to choose more sustainable environmentally friendly thing and not and sometimes it's so confusing like reading book now which. I read inconspicuous consumption inconspicuous picky with a lot of these things like the Internet uses so much energy and will continue to you so much. We're part of that. How do we how do we escape? So it is very complex and I agree we need you too as a society really allow governments and companies to start regulating in a different way. That will make bigger. Larger guilt transitions. Because it's hard for individuals to make that choice when one things cheaper than the other one thing that we can sort of end on that is so important is voting for science. We always have talked about this. It's like look at your politicians Titians look at how they wanNA handle the environment and science and make a decision in that way because we're not talking about government's needing to have more power and yet we were we're also talking about the Australian government being ignorant do science and Donald trump is ignorant opposed to sci like that is really really really scary and so we do need as a collective where there's democracies voting for science and holding our leaders accountable. Yeah you you just opened up a whole loop that I. We won't talk about it but just yet realizing that's also some people's fear about giving government power. What if they're doing things we don't want them to do? What if it's a government that we've given so much autonomy to that is actually doing things that they're regulating things we don't want them to or I don? Everyone has different opinions on. What is the right way to govern so it is jeff is to say a very complex issue that we don't have a simple solution for but it's probably talking about it all?.

"Today. New Prime Minister of Australia is calling for a high level. Investigation into how. The country's government has responded to the devastating listing wildfires. That my colleague Livia Allback Ripka on the events that led up to this. It's Monday in January thirteenth. Live you. You're on the ground in Australia covering these wildfires that have been raging throughout the Konin. What have you been seeing these past few weeks so the scenes that are unfolding here in Australia a totally unprecedented? You and we do have bushfires here in Australia. But what we're seeing now has not happened before it's been labeled the worst fire season ever recorded an and apocalypse a nightmare and like looking into the gates of hell. This is being the hottest and dryest year on record in Australia. Several bushfires burning outside of Sydney of combined into what's being called a mega blaze. It's not really one lodge but hundreds if not thousands of smaller Fayaz has its dotted across various states along the South Eastern coast of Australia. They traveled down the coast just becoming more immense yes and ferocious officials. Friday warned the bushfire was too big to put out there over one hundred fires burning in this day and so these fires have created smog smog and smirk Hayes. Sydney skyline is renowned for being one of the most beautiful in the world but it was fired from its best today. You probably saw images of the Habat totally covered in smoke that iconic Sydney Haba view that we all know in Lao virtually invisible by thick smoke highs in Canberra. The EPA Lucien was recorded as the worst in the world Western del even pollution's levels in some parts and more than seventeen times above hazardous levels while major landmarks including parliament house barely visible through the smog and some estimates put these fires at more than eight times larger than those in California that wiped out the town of Paradise.

"australia" Discussed on Pantsuit Politics
"Escalation of conflict with Iran. We're going to talk about the wildfires in Australia. In greater depth and Beth has grudgingly agreed to talk about Harry and Megan's dare I say shocking announcement about their future inside the British royal family shocking. It is shocking. Listen it's it's shocking. Okay that is as an accurate description of what happened. Why don't we start in Iran before we moved to this breaking news out of the UK? There's been a a lot this week since we were last with you. There has been the Iraqi parliament's decision to ask US troops to leave the non-binding finding decision. But it was fairly significant. Our administration's gross display of incompetence in sending the administration in now says was a draft letter to Iraq. Saying yes we do respect your sovereignty and will in fact pull our troops out a draft letter already translated into Arabic so. I'm a little skeptical of that explanation. Not as first draft. I'm betting and then the attack by Iran on on an Iraqi Air Force Base Message from the President on twitter assuring us that all is well with that statements on twitter from on both US Iraqi officials indicating that everyone feels perhaps like we're even and so we can maybe stop doing this but not forever ever because we still really don't like each other. Is that a fair summary. I do think de-escalation is accurate. If you're only paying attention to the actions that Iran is claiming right so I think that they felt it was necessary to to openly take action and claim it which they did which is unusual for Iran. Right right and I think they did that and I think that that they did that while having their foreign minister on twitter and many other places saying we don't want war. We don't want war. We don't want war and so there was is an effort to de escalate the forward facing part of this conflict but I think the the back end of this conflict any forward movement on keeping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon cyber Weber attacks any interference in our elections or proxy battles with militias in Iraq or Syria. or or Lebanon. I think that has only heightened and become more dangerous and more problematic in there is even less. It's room for compromise or agreement or mutual understanding part of the reason. I sound so cynical about this. Is that we issued. You'd another round of sanctions in connection with the president's announcement that things are de escalating. And I agree with you. Sarah that the motivations of of a whole group of very loosely affiliated actors are certainly dialed up against the United States for the foreseeable future. And I worry about the economic pressure I read a really illuminating interview with the president of Iraq in the New Yorker. A number of pieces of that interview really struck me the one that I can't stop thinking about is the president of Iraq. Said you know American politicians constantly campaign on a message of jobs jobs jobs how important it is to keep adding jobs to the United States economy in he. He said think about what we need here. We need that to an exponential degree here because we have this fragile economy economy. That is trying to rebuild. We have so many young men who do not have access to good work here and the opportunities for those young men uh are not favorable outcomes for our country or yours so we got to have a minute economically to get things in order. We've got to have some foreign investment vestment and by continuing to squeeze Iran economically. We harm the entire region not just Iran and and we increase I think the likelihood for the next militia to spring up that decides it's going from regional actor you're to global extremist perpetrator of terror. Well and the other part of this conversation that's really bothering me. Is this idea idiot that well no lives were lost. Everybody move on when we still lack so much information about the a Ukrainian airplane crash in Iran. One thing that I read. That really helped me put this in. Context was An article with aviation expert. Saying hey you never know. Why plane crashed that quickly? A plane doesn't crash in the moments later. Everybody says Oh mechanical air moving on on like that's not how it works. It takes weeks and months to figure out what happened and the fact that the Iranians are claiming that it's clearly mechanical error that they have taken possession of the black box is really concerning to me and I don't think that we are even at the beginning of understanding standing what happened to the one hundred seventy six people who lost their lives on that plane or what caused the plane to go down and so until we have a better understanding I think think like dusting if our hands off and saying nothing to see here no lives lost is It's a little preemptive in my opinion and I understand understand that the connection to Ukrainian plane seems like maybe we're getting into conspiracy theory territory but it's it's hard not to do that. When like the United States Russia certainly uses the Middle East as ground to advance its own interests and we know that Russia has has been allied with Iran at least as it relates to Syria and in other ways and so for Russia to take advantage of the mess that I think our administration created over the past? Couple of weeks would make sense. It would follow a playbook. And so it's not as attenuated as maybe it seems well and even if it was an accident because of of heightened awareness and escalation in the region and everybody being a little hair trigger that still matters. Upset still should be put in tally of what this cost us. What this cost the world and not just sorta filed away as an accident? It doesn't really matter I still think that is really important. And I think the other part of this conflict that isn't over is the conflict between Congress and the president over her the justification for the assassination of General Sulejmani and the ongoing conversation about just which branch of government. It has the authority to make these decisions. There are reports that the briefing West contentious. You have some of the strongest language that we've heard word used to emphasize the administration. Yeah from Republican. Senator Mike Lee who said that. This is the worst briefing. He attended his nine years. I don't know Sarah I have such mixed reaction to that. There is a part of me that just listens to those complaints from Congress and thinks this administration has expressed nothing but contempt for the institution of Congress since the day that president trump was sworn in. And so. What do a you expect you know when you start to cede power authority people take more and more and more and that's what the administration's doing they're just taking more and more? I saw quotes in the dispatch this morning. Newsletter that I read about how Staffer said that the members of the administration who were there to brief Congress acted like they were doing congress a favor by being there and that it was an annoying favor that they really wish that they weren't doing that attitude is wholly unsurprising if you look at the track record of the last couple of years. Yeah I definitely understand what you're saying that you know and I think we began a part of this conversation on Tuesday. which is is if you have a congress that has acquiesced in the expansion of executive power? You're what role do they have to play. Or what justification do they have in trying to take back some of that power and I think it's complicated i. I don't think Congress is ever one body I think particularly with the House of Representatives. You have a new Congress not just a Democratic Congress but a Democratic Congress composed of many freshman members numbers many freshman members with intelligence experience who most likely have a very different view of Congress's role. And you know you have a new generation of Congress just that grew up under this or authority. That's been in place since two thousand and one. Their almost their entire our entire adult lives looking at this with fresh eyes and I think we need to give them The benefit of the doubt or the leeway or the freedom to push back and reclaim that power for Congress and then there's also a part of me and with regards to people like Rand Paul and Mike Lee which I think is sort of a different conversation I believe me I understand the instinct to say too little too late guys. Give me a break. But I'm really trying to lean into that. You know the conversation we had on Tuesday and the idea that you know we need conservatives and not to shut someone down completely. Because I I think they've been a part of the problem in the past There was actually a really good conversation about this on friends like these with Ana Marie Cox and they were actually talking about Christianity search and Brin recommended it to me but should this great conversation about never trumpers and like she was basically like you know it's really hard to listen and Bill Kristol and not think about his role in the lead up to the Iraq war and the his role and all the sort of conservative long-term conservative intellectuals and in in some senators as well and their role in this expansion under Bush and even Obama now all of a sudden you know cry now in the face of a problem. They helped create but She was like I still believe that. They have a right to participate in the conversation. I don't WanNa shut them out completely. I just think we also have to hold them responsible. And I think that's what we have to do with Mike Lee and and Rand Paul and people especially key to say we need your voices we appreciate you recognizing the problem. We also need you to take responsibility you for your role but we can have them take responsibility without pushing them back into the arms of the trump administration by shutting them down so hard and so quick that let me take this will bother approach right and I think that's what's really difficult to do. I think I'm looking at this in a little bit different way. 'CAUSE 'CAUSE I don't disagree with anything that you just said my problem and maybe this is a little bit of a departure. As you're talking about the freshman members of Congress I think a fundamental all source of the difficulty in Congress exerting its role is that it has allowed itself to be animated by individual personalities instead of by collective action and this administration has talked to the American people consistently about Congress as WHO's with us and against us on an individual basis and win someone like Jeff Flake before his retirement would make a speech criticizing the administration instead of talking about. What are the problems here? The administration just turns its IR to Jeff Flake as an individual and Jeff Flake as an individual who'll retires and on we go to the next dust up and for me. I care a lot that we have the information that this briefing was is inadequate. And I think Senator Lee for that and I also recognize that until you have congress as a body willing to act to who exert its power collectively regardless of who is in the majority in that power. But we're Congress says we care about our power over declaring in war we care about our power to issue subpoenas and have them complied with in connection with our constitutional oversight role. We care about the administration trying through Executive Branch rulemaking to Undo Statutes that Congress has written we care about all of these things enough to sometimes come to a conclusion that maybe doesn't align with our party platforms because the power of Congress as a collective body matters. It's just hard for me to feel super optimistic because I see this is such a large issue that has been laying dormant for so long while speaking of collective action. It looks like Nancy. Pelosi is getting very close to sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate which will trigger the Senate the trial. There's been a lot of discussion this week about the rules for that trial and we wanted to give you a heads up that we will be discussing Senate impeachment roles in detail on Tuesdays episodes. Look Fort that listen. Here's the thing I've been thinking a lot about this and I don't want to make this about Harry and Megan and just their individual like a Celebrity Gossiping. I know you're not into that and I don't really think that's why this is important but I do think for better or for worse. The British Royal Family.
"australia" Discussed on Post Reports
"From the newsroom of the Washington Robert Samuels from the Washington. Post Kaplan Hi this is this is post reports. I'm marteen powers. It's Thursday January January ninth today. What fires in Australia tell us about climate change trump's success in remaking the judiciary sorry and the unfolding royal drunk? Hundreds of wildfires are burning across southeastern Australia. The fires of the size of whole countries. We're talking twenty six million acres. That's nearly one hundred nineteen thousand square miles of land which have been dissipated summation by fire. The fires have destroyed thousands of homes the decimated wildlife the Australian government says thousands thousands of Koalas have been killed. Australia is already a huge country geographically so on top of several years of drought. There's so much fuel in the country tree that can burn and these fires have become vicious and ferocious because of the dry material. That's being swept into the path of the Fire Kate. Shuttleworth is a journalist analyst based in Melbourne. She's been reporting on the fires for the past two months. I've reported natural disasters earthquakes in New Zealand. And I've reported war and this was enlightened. Nothing I've ever seen. We chartered a boat and traveled nearly six hours along the Australian coastline through the best straight. which is an extremely rough patch of say and all along that coast? There was a haunting yellow orange backdrop and the air was thick with smoke at times and really difficult to breathe in. The whole coast was on fire. And that was. When I realized the scale of things FIS you could see the burning it was haunting that was apocalyptic.
"australia" Discussed on Pro Rata
"Robert and takes us ten minutes to get. Yeah you smarter on the Clinton of Tech Business Politics. I'm Dan primack today. Show Softbank Shaft Startups and trump's twitter threats but first Australia on on fire so sometimes you hear Democrats say that America is the only country where climate change is a debate rather than an accepted fact. But that's untiringly true. It's also been hotly contested issue in Australia. Where current Prime Minister Scott Morrison won election last year with a coal positive climate change skepticism message? That sounded a lot like president trump with whom he has something of an international bromance but Morrison may soon have no choice but to change course as his. The country is in flames after its hottest and driest year on record. Nearly fifteen million acres have burned so far twenty. Four people are dead. Thirteen hundred homes have been lost with countless. More threatened and local colleges estimate that half a billion animals are dead and speaking of animals. Listen to this so that's not an actual siren. That's an Australian Magpie type of bird that mimics sound and and right now it's not hearing much else to mimic. Obviously what's happening in. Australia is a human and environmental catastrophe and comes on the heels of the two thousand eighteen wildfires in California. Yeah and last year's massive burn of the Brazilian rainforest all three cases involved countries were leaders tend to treat. Climate change is a punchline but the question now for Australia is if the flames have finally reached the political tipping point. If fifteen seconds we'll go deep with the Washington Post Andrew Friedman but first this actually is chief technology elegy correspondent enough free chairs breaking news and analysis on the most consequential companies in players in tech from the valley to DC. Subscribe to get smarter faster at sign up dot axios DOT COM and now back to the podcast. We're joined now by Andrew. Friedman the deputy weather editor editor at The Washington Post tweets talk a little bit here. There have been wildfires before in Australia. These are obviously much larger. What can we attribute just the breadth arrests in the ferocity of this too so Australia has never really been as hot and dry at the same time as they have been recently twenty? Nineteen with fair how this is the year. December was one of their top two hottest ever month. It had their to hottest days ever on record for the country three in December so you've had just tinderbox dry conditions throughout the vegetation in southeastern Australia in particular and that really primes the situation for any spark that comes along could create some sort of explosive fire development speaking any spark. We don't have any stories or any explanation yet and what technically started this right whether it be lightning striker camper lighting a campfire. We don't actually know that yet do we well. We know that are thin has been involved is suspected in in several of the fires which is not all that unusual is that what's behind this. Huge outbreak affiars. No but that is involved in in potentially intentionally sitting a believes a couple of these fires others are lightning others are started by other fires themselves. There's a term in Australia in some some of these warnings. That is actually really frightening. And I hadn't seen it before which is known as an ember attack where in a period of strong winds some of these fires I have been sending out burning embers miles out ahead of the fire and what that does is essentially 'cause spot fires ahead of it to the can then turn into major fires and then I can merge into what you'd call Mega Fire Jonathan Swan. WHO works here at Axios in this from Australia? He texted me this morning. said that what he's hearing from family and friends is one of the big issues there and it's not surprising is firefighters are simply do not know how to handle something. This large is just beyond their scope of training. What happens next here? Is there a way we'd actually stop these outside of pray for rain outside of pray for rain. No it's likely that these fires and this week is actually a better week weatherwise otherwise but outside of appreciable rainfall. This is not gonNA end anytime soon with. They're hoping for is that they won't get many any more days of extreme to catastrophic wildfire risk. They're not gonNA put these out they've been asking for more aerial support board. They've been asking for more people to come to the front lines. Australia has a lot of volunteers in their firefighting force. More than the United States does ah the. US has both a federal force and state forest and there have been some wildfire. Firefighting planes flew in from California to Australia Australia. Although one of the weird things is that because of Australia's fire season started so early California's on fire at the same time that South Eastern Australia. Israeli was so that they weren't able to call in out from the companies and the people that they normally call in help from from your perspective. How's The Australian government responded from a qualitative basis has it been doing qualitative basis the federal government meaning? The government led by Scott. Morrison has been a disaster. I've been talking to people in Australia. Triumphs of various political persuasions. And they're telling me you know he's not shown a proper amount of empathy. He arrived in an area That had been decimated by fires. The people basically heckled him to the point where he got back in his motorcade and laughed. And you guys actually the Washington Post for folks who want to see if there's actually a video go up on your side. Yeah there is and you know if you look on the Hashtag Scott for marketing which is kind of a lot of Australians. derisively call him because is he used to be the head of Tourism Australia. You'll see a lot of kind of the waste. They think about him now. It's complicated because Morrison was reelected somewhat. Recently he is very pro co-development he is very. I don't know that I'd call him at climate denial. He's more skeptical of a lot of the mainstream science ants on climate and denies a lot of the linkages between climate change and these fires. So He's vulnerable on two points. He's vulnerable on not giving enough resources to firefighters our fighters and not being apathetic and being caught on vacation in Hawaii when this all started shamed into coming home and only coming home one day early the state governments are really the ones that lead fire response in Australia and they've been much more on the ball and then the people that Australians are into for leadership. But you know when I've asked. Australians what they figure Morrison Right now. They've basically said he doesn't speak for me when we think about the big California for new wildfires from two years ago that didn't seem to create any change in the political climate debate in the US. When we see what happened in Brazil that does not appear at least to have made any political impact yet in Brazil? Or maybe it's too early. Do you believe from what you've seen so far and says some crystal ball gazing and some foreign policy. I guess what we're seeing in Australia. Failure is that going to actually change the conversation Australian make Australia more like Europe than the US at the very good question. I think that this could be the turning point Australia. Just because this is so big and so dramatic in terms of the visuals and so many people are suffering and everybody knows somebody who is affected however you also have the influence of the Murdoch owned press empire in Australia And they are really striking the tone similar to what president trump said about California. When he said you know they're not raking the forest enough and in Australia Charlie They're talking about how they are not doing prescribed burns because the environmentalists won't let them and they're not you know thinning out the forests and lobby lobby enough so there are some similarities to how this played out in the United States and the last three or four prime ministerial elections in Austrailia have turned on climate change to some degree and I wouldn't be surprised if the next one did. We're expecting a pretty large protests protests mounted the end of this week in Australia by those who are want climate action so it remains to be seen. I mean I'm some of these a little bit pessimistic. Anything anything is going to change. In countries that have really entrenched climate denial interests and such fossil fuel based economy and Friedman deputy weather editor of The Washington. Post thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for having me my final two right after this. There's more news out there than ever before but these days it's harder than ever to find it and to know what to trust axios. AM takes effort out of getting smart by synthesizing. The ten stories. That will drive the day and telling you I. They matter subscribe at sign sign up dot axios DOT COM and now back to the podcast that was done for my final two and Softbank the Japanese investment giant known. It's big bets. That's in companies like Uber Slack. And we work. What's new today is an axios report that Softbank his walked away from investing in several startups after having submitted term sheets and telling the companies that delays were only procedural this matters for companies not only because they lost out on hundreds of millions of dollars from Softbank but also because they lost an enormous Chris amount of time which is one of their most valuable resources and for Softbank? It's a huge reputational hit. That will make it harder to invest in highly sought after companies. So why is this happening. I think there are two theories one is that Softbank simply doesn't have the money or at least as much money today as it thought it would have. When it signed the term sheets? The firm's been trying to raise its second one hundred Billion Dollar Vision Fund but today has been unable to hold even a I close from outside investors. The other theory is that this is shell shock. From the we work situation with Softbank recalibrating its philosophy and risk appetite either way it is a very bad look and finally president trump over the weekend use twitter to publicly threatened Iran including warning that the US could target cultural sites in apparent violation of international law. This is prompted the usual calls for twitter to pull the tweets and Orban Orban trump believing that his threats violence are in violation of the company's terms of service twitter though isn't playing along with the critics instead relying on a policy of leading political article leaders tweet things that normally wouldn't allow other people to tweet the tricky part here. Though is the last year twitter publicly announced the policy that could let it add warnings tweets it deems to violate its rules so keep them up but put a little warning sticker so far however twitter has an added any such warning to tweets from trump. Or anyone else. And we're done vic. Thanks for listening. It's producers. Tim Show Naomi Shaven have a great national shortbread day. And we'll be back tomorrow with other pro rata podcast..

Today we played peninsula kings would very different experience experience. I think incredibly pleasant surprise. We didn't know much about it through the first time you turn in. It's just more luscious. That's the first thing the AC- luscious greenery. It's significantly more green. It's on the it's not that far from Kingston Heath but it's right on the border between the Mornington peninsula and wear the Australian sandbelt ins so it is still firm. Don't get me wrong. A lot of the tee shots shots and all that still firm. It's still rounds. But it wasn't as severe and firm and fast as Kingston Heath blatantly and the Greens. I thought were nowhere near the same firmness. They were just faster faster. Yup but which is very fast and they're pure insanely pure. Oh maybe this pure screens ever seen. I really like anything. We saw. pyner Stephen Pure they were perfect. They had little backstops which was just made it more fun. We did it years. We did this at pioneers. Like pioneers number two was like the core just like Kingston Heath was and it's the same thing like it's a little more flat than the ones that we liked or for me. I'll speak for myself like it was more flat. A little less characteristic but like the golf nerds and like all the architects. They love those types of golf courses. Then we went to pilots number four for which was just more luscious had like character to it. I like character. It doesn't have to be everything that you know. Makes it a top one hundred golf course when we got to this place today peninsula kings would I knew just from driving in. I'm like I'm going to enjoy this a lot better. It was spectacular. I had so much elevation. Change range a lot of holes that really stood out a thirty six hole facility. They just redid a bunch of it over the last five six seven years they redid the clubhouse just opened like six months the house is Tony. Macula substance clubhouse is liberty national level. It really was. They have to all they have have. They have like Grass tennis courts that Right Lurch Yep Grass tennis courts. The had a bowling like outdoor bowling. WHO's a lawn? Bowling Mall was the most most like manicured perfect. Everything artificial turf. They had all the lines out there. They had this just like off. The wing of their main. Clubhouse was just a glass room with your Olympic sized pool inside strew so all of that combined with these two incredible golf courses. We played the north course to when we got to experience variance in right off the gate. We just could tell like okay. This is different. You could see the You could see the city of Melbourne in the background. Oh cool which was so so awesome. It was clearly twenty miles thirty miles away or whatever it is but you can see from two or three different teas. You could see the water so it just kind of it wasn't that's sort of water views but again on four five Ts. Maybe you can kind of see it off. In the distance we started on number five. Start at five because we MR teatime. Yeah big we showed up and they said you're late that's the only thing they said they took care of us. They were great. We'll drive out to number five and then you can just play one through four after after so you have plenty of time to film and all that which we did our guy. Harry joined US club. Champion You know a couple of people throughout the day. Where like driving? Now you could tell that we are the dumb Americans and I don't know if I'm just like self conscious about it or I think that like everyone's like thinks that we just look like it like we have a target on our back but like I just feel like everywhere. We've been so far even when we go to lake. We went to McDonald's we couldn't figure out a pay like the credit cards weren't working like everyone's GonNa Workers Idiots also today and everybody else was doing the Pushcart pushcart pain. Yeah everybody was still catching up. Golf carts were slow in the people down where we got. We got the drone fine everywhere with I bless God bless you might pick that up or not plus I try to put it all do very well at trying to hide it trying to hide the sneeze trying to hide the Mike. Okay bless you But yeah I thought like a couple of times that people are just looking at us. I A couple of guys on the T.. And like were these guys doing like making cracking jokes but then we had Harry come along and he didn't really say much just to begin with you just like appeared after green like whatever like eleven or twelve and he stuck with us the whole day we found out that he's two-time club champions. Yep He's a plus one and he's just the coolest guy ever saying that we're going to get fingered and all this stuff and just like super like you could tell he's a successful dude and like really like like he's like he's just like successful you could tell he's got a great attitude and he's also kind of like shy but then hilarious Lewis got like Frisbee but it's it's all hidden but when it comes to you also maliciously love to laugh at our demise and he would laugh and he would cover his mouth like it was a giggle but he would be like gasping when we look back. Look like Harry's just laughing faces I. It's quite entertaining quite entertaining. Yeah someone would hit a downhill. PUTT thirty feet off degrees. It'd be quiet and you could just hear him cock like thirty five but it was maybe thirty feet off. Line that one that we were talking about. We're like oh no. It's one definitely has a spring right to left and we thought it was like ten foot break. He's like you idiot. Says he let me hit the ball just completely wrong way and he goes. What was what you see there? I don't know Harry. Why don't you just shut the fuck up? Just Blue Ridge was at the bottom of the green saying period. Tell him a word and the two of us out there like the way out to the right. I was reading the PUTTIN. I'd look in the corner like Harry's lacking on now I think six feet the other right it was a poker a poker game trying to beat your yellow yellow information so that you can then determine Rita Harrah's react you can also tell that like at any moment he could grab one of our clubs and just stuck a ball to and from the Penn.. They just had that like he had that confidence where like golf was a joke to him. Watching US play. It was like funny. Yeah though I t that I saw him I was he he he just was there and then I was like he's like this is a tough hall of your plan for the back and I was on our plan because your plan from one joke. Yeah and then we all basically probably made both we. We were doing this trousers video and we get people to talk about everything. That's GonNa be awesome when you see like when we do the drone work and then when we interview the people and we got Harry to talk about it but we also gives us a little like a tidbit of each hole like one hundred eighteen and it was funny when you watch this video to listen to him when he's talking what about home eighteen. He's talking about it as if he was playing. He says every single holes easy. He's like it's just a driving down the middle easy chip up and then a two-putt and it's no problem. It's it's like you know I mean there are some times where his plus one seeped into it where you're just like it's GonNa be hilarious to see how easy he makes it sound where he's like you just want to get it up. There was watching thus making eleven two on the whole eighteen that he was like. Oh this is going to test you with the driver and we'd let so many fairways go perfectly on Tahoe. The worst hit what shots when he wants to. He explains on this video. Exactly where the prime shots are. Hit where you're landing spots are where your second I should go and we don't do any of it no and you'll see on of it also was like yeah. It's a pitching wedge for their fire right some of the things you were saying. We're embarrassing like like he was he was like yeah. It's like five hundred four hundred and fifty meters which is like five ten thing. We'll see you have to blast a driver and then from there you'll have like you. He said like seven or something like that. Like your reputable. That's another thing we're playing meters. We're not doing your switch lenders and absolute grind for you boy over here we're doing. We're doing meters. This is not your forte. No we've already played thirty six holes and I'm just GONNA I've guest every single time. I don't know the at all I asked you every time I've never once Mike Lynch was that we've not yet once on this trip played two rounds of golf. We haven't had a yard and we're not allowed to the whole play meters always switched arrange finders a few meters and that's all it is shadow depend. I think the ball travels further. Here it's hot. It's warm. The ball was flying handed off as war but bounces. It just goes hit one hundred sixty five yard nine iron today. That's just that's just out of my game bomb. It's a bomb out of my ex. Not good that's well. No I mean like I think I hit it flushed I. The wind was behind me but like the ball. Is Flying Club here. I mean you hit a drive today. That was what was two hundred ninety meters. There was bomb. Whatever it was you hit it like what was that The one for a four year lasts you kill them with Vala just went through through the air it was like you hit zero. Gravity thing was ripped. Yeah I will say like. I don't hit the ball very far as everybody knows. And on that whole to like I a three iron that usually goes maybe to ten for me it would like to seventy..

Recover the President's Cup we've got credentials we're working with the PGA tour four. They run the President's cup. You can follow all week at four played pilot on instagram on twitter and putting up videos photos live coverage of rounds of all kinds of stuff. That's going on. We landed Australian. We pretty much go straight to the golf course. By the time we get the car rental car which I'm driving arriving which turns out the steering wheels on the right side of the car and you drive on the left side of the road. Terrifying almost killed everybody. What three times? Yup Dude you at least it was taken a a little bit too long for you to get adjusted. I was getting nervous and like I don't think I could drive. I don't think the mental capacity to because there are some moments where I was like man I definitely would have hugged that corner and turn right right into that trap right. It's turning turning into the right way of direction. Yup because it's obviously it takes a little bit too left journey hogging the corner corner you hug right curve from the other side of the car a right turn. It's so tempting to just go into oncoming traffic right so trump that you just can't do it now. This is a dumb American of me and like an I think like America just runs the world which like a lot of stuff we do does but like to me. I said this to you guys. I think that there has to be more head on collisions. In countries in which the driving is on the left side like we're doing right here in Australia as opposed to in America. I just like I think that people will just get used to the way we drive when they come here for some reason like. I think it's harder for people to learn on the fly. What we're doing in Australia than it is in America for some some reason? I know we're used to it. And that's the reason why I feel that way. I just think like any tourists that would come to these other countries. I think Americans are more. I think Americans organs are more like the odds are that we're going to turn into Europe those like right but when we're in America we're not thinking thinking that Europeans are going to be flying down the highway at the wrong way ever. It's never on my mind but I got something on their mind here right. Do you think that way or no. That's like something that if they're conscious of that American that's GonNa drive the wrong way. Like like rigs went the wrong way down a street. I literally was having down the wrong way win. When does that happen? Ever in America had no point is like somebody coming at me. I'd be like a European. We'd never be your own. They'd be like they just psycho like going like murder-suicide what's going on here. I'm just I just went into the American like on his way to McDonald's which we had today we did you. I went to some good Australian. Me yeah I said to him. I said the China said.

It's always what the fuck is customary to Australian food like what he's Australian Food Alpach. Nice I don't know steak I think are really good. Australia is very good red wine. Yeah interesting yellowtail tale free adds nothing. But it's like when you think of Australia. What do you do any sort of like food? Come to mind now. Yeah shrimp on the Bobby. Right except like stereotypical stuff like kebabs. Yeah can we talk about Christmas and Australia would love to. So we all understand and if you don't back home it's summertime in Australia right now. It's ninety eight degrees today. Ninety nine on boom ninety eight on my phone phone shots and ninety degrees one hundred one. Shay Yeah I'm trying to think of it was one hundred won't transform degrees the Middle Summer. I mean it gets dark at eight forty five pm and something like that. It's it's the longest days it's the middle of summer. We are wrong go. I do I was thinking of I like girls Abercrombie and Fitch had won wish. And she'll be back summer. That's that's I think so. I don't think that Oh all right but degree sounds different. I feel like that song. This is their number one song. That's that's that's nickle they're Cincinnati's I used to watch the Nicholas and Jason Show Chicken of the sea. Okay so that was still early and like the reality. TV is to those tickets. Right tuna catoon as June so Christmas in Australia. It's the middle summertime yet. The first sign that we saw was like Merry Christmas and it just had snow all around the side. That's right there. People that decorate their homes have like snowmen on their roofs. It's fucking summertime. Who says rough like you say roof roof they'll go? They'll rough rough rough offers on fire like doggy daycare or something.

Like it's very funny getting along check lane so Christmas is weird here different. It doesn't make sense but I get it. We're trying to think about where that comes from.

How is Santa Ana fucking surfboard with his presence? Right with the toys or something. Why is he in a Salei ghetto? You've got a good point about Europeans and it could have been made up and it seemed correct where you send the car about where Saint Nick and Santa originated in Europe. This was like a colony where people came or whatever and then just stuck I mean I mean that's a good deal of that law fly and was not as head like I'd be something like the marketing of it right like there's gotta be like like the old time I'm just like somewhere. Somehow like books were written about just like Santa Claus giving gifts coming on his sleigh with reindeer like had to be or Australia's driving around the car listening to like winter wonderland. Yes Harden Chris Paul Long Probably. That's crazy that is Santa roof degrees out. It's going to go get him. I think the the place where we all bought water on the walkover somewhere.

"At that point the Up until that point the only why people could come to Australia from Latin America where we had some post World War Two European migrants who went for example to Tina and if they'd been in Latin America less than five years they still count as European. And we're allowed to come to Australia. That was there was very limited. A skill functional solid land from non-european areas But it wasn't up until nineteen seventy-three that they had that op and allowed people to to come in so the first wide would say. I think the pus while migration action from spine from Latin America it would be following the nineteen seventies Where we had a big big migration from southern Alvin kind actually would would it be now I group it would be from Tina from Uruguay and Chile? The Australian government offered assisted packages for travel. The end paypal it setup migrant hostels people came and lived in these hostels the night moved to the surrounding suburbs and when you look at the distribution of the community across Australia you can say that these older communities are primarily in Sydney and to a lesser degree in Melbourne. And it's because I think their original placement in these hostels in these major cities ladies and then I moved out to the suburbs. I'm so then. Sheila came just slightly lighter than that and then more recently. Well then we had el El Salvador came off to that that was in the eighty s with a special humanitarian program. That was set up that yet I was talk Dorian migration and then more recently way saying as I said migration from Columbia massive increase in migration. So Catherine. Thank you for mentioning the White Australia policy. Because they'll they'll sunk you. I was GonNa ask you in a moment there and obviously the If you follow the news here in the US but the immigrant community here in the US is going through difficult difficult times and you know so if anyone needs a valuable frame of reference as to where the current administration might be you know looking at or how what their view is of the world when it comes to immigration and Migration Policy Interesting frame of reference would be the white Australia policy from from back back in the day now one component of the White Australia policy that I'm curious to know if it was active or part of or still part of Australia in in the nineteen seventy s as this community was developing is distinct. Called the dictation test was still active during this time in the seventies or was that are already already obsolete and ticket out long ago. Unfortunately I dont know win. The dictation test hissed was taken out but certainly having a high level of English is has always been a priority In Australia and if anything. It's actually strengthening more recently. Just recently there was quite a bit of discussion about rising. The level of the English tests that people people native to pass in fact some people said that rising to a level that was equivalent to getting into you having university level English And there was quite a bit of debate. What about that in in the end did it didn't go through? Fortunately but certainly language has long been used as a way to to to discriminate against against people I guess another interesting point about languages. And we think about these waves of migration jury the at Margaret's from humanitarian reasons were often unskilled. They often had a low level of of English. They had little economic power and we've seen a massive change to that now. The kind of migration that we saying is very highly skilled For example from Columbia from Venezuela very highly educated title very highly skilled have some level of English and also have sufficient money because Australia has right is continually rising amount of money that you need to demonstrate that you've got and the the criteria so it's very very different social group that we're seeing a massive social change in out-migration which of course for Australia. It's it's a massive boon to get these very well educated very motivated people in. It's obviously just a massive loss for the for the countries that coming from. Yeah you know what that's interesting that you mentioned that that does sort of the intellectual brain or the brain drain as one might call it whenever they are crisis in places like the aforementioned El Salvador or an orange Chile. It's the intelligence of the country. That's leaving because of some form of persecution from wherever wherever country there may be in question here in the case of El Salvador. It was is a horrendous civil war in the eighties that led a lot of people including my own family to immigrate to the US in one thousand nine hundred eighty S. Not Noise noise. We knew that Australia was an option. During this time suddenly we can see that as Spanish speaking population is very high. Achieving in some ways it was just looking at the census to compare EDUCATION LEVELS FOR PEOPLE WHO report speak Spanish at Hun with those reports speak English at home and interestingly Al Spanish speakers much higher proportion has completed high school and a high proportion have also attained a bachelor's degree at University University. So I think this is consistent with this is very well educated people who are coming out to a Stra Interestingly a lower proportion in have attained a postgraduate degree so I'm not sure whether we saying some sort of ceiling affect their or Oh what's going on with that but certainly any. We can say it very clear to say the high high status of education.

"But nuclear physicist. Heiko says we could earn more if we start storing it the moment the uranium let's exporters from Australia overseas process for example in Canada enriched enriched and then maybe use in a react to in Japan and once the fields expired the fuel elements often kept on site next to the reactor infecting Infocom Shaimaa when the Fukushima catastrophe happened that was one of the issues that not just the reactor melt on but also there was all expired fuel right next to it in Walter Pool which was kept. They're not only could we make money out of taking Roy uranium back once it's being used and it would also fulfill in environmental for this because taking it away from unsecure site if you imagine it being stored if you mentioned the fuel elements being sold in Japan in an Earthquake Zion. It's much better to put wooded underground somewhere in Australia. There's also ethical aspect to it because giving the uranium to the world and we taking it back and of course you can also provided hi did badly against I will give you the uranium and we also make sure that once you've used it it can be stored somewhere. You don't have to build your own facility. We doing that for you. So there's a there's a radio radio commercial aspect to doing this right now and that could be explored. The doesn't have any lead time but storing nuclear waste in Australia isn't isn't such a great idea to everyone.
