"Public gets to read it, and there was a collective sigh in the world of UFO's kind of a feeling of letdown. They were expecting something bigger and better. Something about Roswell and alien abductions and meta materials and the craft down at area 51 anything along those lines, alien bodies. There was none of that. Um, So how does it look to researchers? People have been at this a long time around the world. We picked out two of the best. They've been my guest here on coast to coast. In the past. It's been a while. Though. Paul Dean is an Australian researcher who focuses on government and military involvement in response to UFOs. He spent 20 years becoming an expert in regard to UFO files. Five years ago or so he began tracking the problem directly and and was instrumental in getting the Australian government to release classified previously unseen files. His colleague Keith Faster Field has done similar work. He's been interested in the UFO phenomena since the late sixties. His early research findings were in multiple publications, including the UFO Journal, The Move on Journal and The Journal of UFO Studies. And he's for the past 10 years published his research on a blog spot that we have links to on the coast to Coast website want to get their take on recent events and some of the files they've been going after.

Australia’s Never-Ending Travel Ban
"And firstly. The australian government has extended its overseas travel ban for yet another three months until now at least the seventeenth of september. Two thousand and twenty one and it's the fifty three month extension to the human by security emergency period restrictions under the biosecurity act in a row which places restrictions on international travel and cruises. But there has been some progress in restarting international travel. At least four. Some international students coming to new south wales. The new south wales government has announced a pilot program which could start in july and run in addition to the existing hotel quarantine program for returning australians and under this program an initial two hundred and fifty international students per fortnight will be allowed to arrive into sydney and quarantine indicated student accommodation for a fortnight last week. The guardian reported that the federal government is considering another pilot program which could allow vaccinated australians travel overseas and then face less strict quarantine requirements when they return if they coming from a country deemed to be a low risk of covid nineteen and this could start within six to eight weeks. According to the guardian although this report has not been verified by government and there's been no announcement yet so these kinds of reports do need to be taken with quite a large pinch of salt if ustralia deed remove. It's outbound travel ban for people who have been vaccinated. It would be just the third country in the world which bans citizens who are unvaccinated against covid nineteen from leaving but makes exemptions for people who are vaccinated with saudi arabia and kuwait. Being the other two countries with those roles although vaccines in saudi arabia and kuwait are now widely available and people who are ineligible. For vaccine in those countries such as children are exempt from the travel ban as it stands. Australia is one of just seven countries in the world with a blanket ban preventing all of its citizens from leaving the country without a specific travel. Exemption

Well when we look at creating frictions frictions video so that anyone who needs help on a website can click a button and talk to someone face to face and Back in two thousand ten was obviously reasonably novel and we had really good success with that. But it wasn't until you know we really rolling out. I've had several hundred customers that we started to save some bottlenecks and challenges with video agents. And how do you still create a strong value proposition. Where you you know. You've got still training shoes. You've got people challenges. Not iran wants to be on video with a human as well so all those kind of things that we were trying to figure out how does sky obita and we had the amazing opportunity with the australian government. Would talking to the about helping around People with disabilities and how they get welfare support through the government and the lead innovation. Chief innovation officer really bisi lighted out.

"A little bit about peace in australia. The australian government has agreed to amendments to its proposed media code and facebook says that within the coming days it will no longer block australia new sources on its platform. The amendments are going to change four things about the news media and digital platforms mandatory bargaining code. That's the one that says you have to pay news publishers in australia. If your facebook or google well. It might not apply to facebook and google anymore. The first is about how a platform qualifies for the law. One of the reasons only facebook and google qualified to be subject to the code under its original. Drafting was because of the way. They measured significant bargaining power imbalance. Now with these new amendments to designate. a platform is subject to the code. The government must also consider not only the bargaining power imbalance but whether there are commercial agreements being made with news companies. Already which as we know. Google has done and now it looks like facebook is about to start doing so conceivably the deals google has made could exempt them from being subject to the code at all and facebook makes the right deals. Sounds like maybe they could be exempt from the code. The government now has to give one month notice if a platform is going to be subject to the new code that probably is to give companies time to strike deals and avoid being subject to the law. Companies will not be penalized for striking different deals with different companies. Giving them some latitude negotiate ahead of time and if a platform was subject to the code they now have two months to negotiate a deal before being forced into arbitration so kicking. That can down the road a little even at the very end facebook got to work and reached a deal with seven west media already to provide news. Facebook has a special news section to showcase news partnerships in other markets. Besides australia and it's expected to launch similar features in australia. So seven west. The i expect expect nine entertainment and news corp follow along if this is all gonna go smoothly. The legislation is expected to pass as early as wednesday after which treasurer frieden berg would begin determining which platforms if any it applies

Facebook to lift Australia news ban, pay media companies for content
"Has resolved a dispute with Facebook about news content. The two sides have been at loggerheads over proposed legislation, which would force tech companies to pay to use news content in Australia. China, Khalil reports from Sydney in a statement. Facebook said the government has addressed the company's concerns about allowing commercial deals that recognized the value. The platform provides to publisher's relative to the value it receives from them, adding that they were now able to restore news pages for Australians in the coming days. The Australian government and the social media giant Have been locked in a standoff as camera pushed ahead with the proposed legislation and made a wide backlash against Facebook's blocking of news content in the country.
Facebooks Australian News Blackout
"We're gonna stop me on the side of the world We've news or rather the lack of news on facebook in australia uses. There can no longer cheryl read news articles from australian or international publishers in a row over proposed legislation from the australian government. Alex hold my hand here. What is going on in two thousand eighteen. The australian government regulator lotion inquiry into impact. Face what we're having on competition particularly around advertising and they found that there was imbalance of power between tech firms and the media and they recommended a code of conduct. That was very long complicated. But essentially it meant that they were gonna get share advertising revenue. Or there's going to be some sort of deal struck between those platforms. Giggle went okay and started making deals news. Koa is probably the biggest one and facebook is just pulled all of the australian new sites off its platform as a sort of nuclear option and basically said well. We've done what you asked. What do you want to do now. And it's almost felt like an empty threat when threatened to do it last year. Now it's real ever all they really did mean and that's a surprise you know. Isn't it clearly just abandoning the best. I think the most interesting thing. It's the perfect storm with australia. Because there are big enough country that that it's significant around the world. Everyone's watching to see what comes out of this. But the people in the world understands what precisely and but they're still not in the top twenty countries a facebook users so business of apps article said that australia's population twenty four male. So even if everybody in australia was facebook using adult they would still only reached nineteenth place of most popular facebook countries regardless of the politics. Heavy steve it just isn't good. Pr for facebook is it. And then i must have made the decision that it doesn't matter that is bad. Pr but i mean for one thing but extensively refusing to pay nominal tax you know despite being one of the world's biggest companies and for another thing when the middle of pandemic and that turning off news to an aging demographic who using service. You might want to know where they vaccines are at. I think when the period of time where the hall of this kind of disinformation machinery during the presidential election the criticism of getting rather just pull out completely out of australia doesn't send a good message to uses. All united see news. App is trying to get factually promptly check journalists and now it just smacks The valley it signed by. Maybe perhaps google is by by playing ball a little bit more with the content providers. I think in this convenient this information east of you want facebook to be really kind of suppose could quality journalism given alex is essentially while we're different to google search engines because publishes willingly upload their content to us and so they volunteering the information to us and why should we pay them to provide them with the platform. But it's not really true. I mean don't you have to basically have your content on facebook. I three years ago. You definitely did. i think. Now it's a case of across all publishers. Most of publishers facebook traffic will come from users sharing their stories to their own pages so they won't come from the brand themselves and so the bruns choices to publish that story. But it's not to publish on facebook necessarily. It's the question of whether or not then. Publishers have benefited by having face because platform so so particularly in all the users all the users go to facebook and then they click through for news rather than going to a new site for news which is something that the entire news industry is desperately trying to change. Probably new york times to the front of that bbc and the daily mail been leading on that for a while so the question is should facebook pay when people prefer platform to a news homepage. And that's difficult. All depends on whether or not publishers need. Facebook more than facebook. Needs publishes and i do not know the answer to that question also opposed goes to the heart of the origins of the open web. Doesn't it steve. Because the whole point of the way that the world wide web was built walls you can always linked to something for free. You can refer someone to something for free. That's not the same as publishing. That's how wikipedia works that's how other sites that are the facts about this work. Some applies in the state. Okay off the bolted. But i think we'll be interested to find out if that kind of sliding mole Content makers these big platforms whether that does really benefit that does is it going to increase the goss. Subscriptions by being late to secure gle by having that league that click from facebook. Is it going gonna financially benefit the middle lousy probably fund that journalism but also like who's getting the money and that's the other thing isn't it. Do we say in the case of google. You're saying google play pool. I mean that's true. That was a threat. Basically from being wasn't disable we'll pay in that kind of seemed to them a little bit. But do you say great. Journalism is being properly funded by google. Because they're going to give some money to news corp every time you click the link or do you say oh sorry open web. It was nice while it lasted but actually turns out we promote it was going to get the money anyway. The idea of the open wipe is tricky in anyway because as increasingly more sites are finding out a subscription model is is a way to have more stable income rather than appetizing income. Once it got a discussion there is no right. Answer that both valid but when it comes to how you fund journalism which journalism you decide is worthy of funding is stuff that is well read worthy of funding or is it only meaningful investigations. Take six months and nobody reads. Is that the sort of stuff. You should be funding. And who draws the line and where is that line drawn about what is worthy journalism. And what is just stuff that you found out that you're writing about and both valid like says it takes sports. Journalism is that valid journalism. And should that be funded. Is that less or more worth than a quick story about somebody who's been defrauded. It's a difficult thing about whether you make that judgment. The same as every publications editor is the story. Worthy should be a newsweek story. Is a bbc stories at wherever story. How do you workout. How you fund those things if you're a third party platform but also another reason that it seems that google have stumped up now as an an onion australia but the presumption is this might roll out elsewhere as well obviously is that they're launching. Google news showcase which is a new product isn't it. I think you need to google news app to see in the uk. So i haven't have you and also as a publisher as an editor. Does he really did these. Things really actually make any different. I mean how many links referrals do you get from sites like that and apple news really. I'm going to speak very vaguely about the level of traffic. That person's gusty. I think is the price of talking to say. I would puglia shame. The news traffic is significant across globally. So that it's it's not an insignificant patriot figures when you talk about the level of loyalty brings the branding. That's more difficult question. And there are no clear answers on that but take facebook facebook as you start. It's news initiative so announced the already launched in the us but announces launching in the uk. The next few weeks of that that plans to pay news publishers to be partnered with facebook so that that type of model is beginning already and we know that. Facebook and google provide huge amounts of traffic to publishers across the world. The ones where there're affiliate content and have been around for a while so we know so flipboard poker apple news. Are they actually significant. There's a user. They don't seem to me to be at yes that Flipboard is still flipboard user. Bases shrunk over the recent years because of google's controversial push towards its an platforms above flip boat but they are still all big traffic drivers. And if you're looking full patriots all of those are valid and can drive millions of patriot. Each month i think so once you get into the real multinational website so much sites. It's less of a percentage for this sites that that could be a huge jump in traffic. That could be thirty. Forty percent and on the smaller sites steve. A you mentioned misinformation an arguably. Actually if you've got kind of legit sources adding revenue for placement on sites like google. It away you can be sure about the quality of the journalism but at the same time you end up with a which is why the web existed you end up with that. A two lane highway. Don't you wear the smaller players and never given the prominence of the big players and it's actually harder to combat. Political narrative will propaganda that way than it would be otherwise it yet. I i suppose that's why you need to look a look at these other platforms. That are kind of imagine like capacity people having the different compensations. What you might get some full sensitive information beth. I wonder if that to access journalism days is always going to exist in some full and the people he won't say will find it but that he wants incentivized Look beyond really manny while they were
Facebook Takes A Hard Line Against Proposed Australian Law
"Facebook has abruptly cut off news to and from a continent. Facebook is blocking users in australia from sharing or reading news stories there several parts to this australian. Publishers cannot post links to their own stories. Ordinary citizens in australia cannot post links to any news stories and in fact people anywhere in the world cannot post news stories that come out of australia. The decision shocked australia news outlets in a huge change for social media in australia. Facebook has blocked news content from being shed on its platform from facebook has taken a stunning step of banning australian uses and publishes from viewing or sharing news articles on its website. What's going on here we've called. Npr tech correspondent shannon bond. I and before we begin we should note that facebook. It's a financial supporter of npr. We cover them like any other companies shannon. Good morning. good morning steve. What caused facebook's move well. Australia is weighing. This proposed law that would force tech companies like facebook to pay big publishers. For linking to their stories this law is trying to address this long running criticism from media companies you know that facebook and google. Npr sponsoring these big tech platforms. Have just sucked up so much of the advertising revenue media outlets around the world. Have these concerns that that's really hurt. The news business news websites just can't compete for advertising with tech giants which are so big so dominant and of course are an important channel to readers. I just wanna know what you're telling me. The law is not even law yet. It's something that's on. Its way to becoming law. And so it's almost a kind of negotiating tactic or lobbying effort. That facebook is said. We're gonna cut you off now right. I mean this fight has been brewing for months. This proposal is expected to become law soon and facebook is just saying it's not going to play with with the rules. Australia is setting which would require platforms to reach deals with publishers to pay for content facebook. Says this law quote fundamentally misunderstands. Its relationship with news outlets view. Is that news that lets choose to post on. Facebook and ultimately publishers benefit more than facebook does and we should say that as this is rolled out. Facebook has acted pretty broadly in terms of blocking things some australian government pages including a fire and rescue agency. Even the weather service had their swipe. Yesterday even facebook's own facebook page was blank in australia. Because it's restoring these pages that have gotten inadvertently caught in the filters are is facebook's response any different than other companies that might be affected by a rule requiring payment in order to to post links. We'll right so the other company could've crosshairs. Here is google which has taken a very different approach. Google had previously also threatened to shut down in australia. It's now reached deals with several big publishers. There most notably it three year global. Deal with newscorp which owns the wall street journal as well as several australian papers. I see. That's notable because newscorp is run by rupert murdoch. he is australian. He's a powerful force in media and politics there. He's been lobbying for years for the tech companies to pay for news content and he has thrown his considerable support behind this law once his companies to be any chance of a like this in the united states. Well i think that's the big concern here and why we're seeing facebook accident act like this. You know it doesn't want to capitulate australia fearing that. Could set a precedent elsewhere and we've heard from lawmakers in canada and europe who say they're open to this approach just last week another. Us tech giant microsoft said it supports version of the australian law and the us. And i think there is concerned that this is something that could we could see here.

Receive four times higher. Click through rates compared to average at as well as twenty eight percent higher engagement rate compared to standard company posts content is created by customers using filters that brands create on snapchat or instagram stories through tiktok videos or even to instagram orioles with the use of tagging and hashtags one of my favorite examples of a brand utilizing user generated content is by the iconic which made its mother's day campaign featuring images and footage of real mothers at home in lockdown struggling with home schooling crying children and so much more. What i love about this campaign is how it is not only unedited. Unfolded user generated content but that it is using this content to remind others. Today are not alone that there are so many people going through the same struggles as they do each day. User generated content is predicted to only saw in twenty twenty one with the use of tiktok. Instagram rails live stories are more. There are so many options for influences to create attention grabbing content. That is relatable fun to watch and so incredibly convincing it has water mouth marketing in a virtual space where word spreads faster than in the real world after all nothing says trust like content created by someone. You completely relate to an empathize with on social media number two in game advertising last march nintendo released animal crossing new horizons and it sold more than thirteen point. Four one million copies in just six weeks if you onshore. Why so many were sold. Some external research about now is advised if you are up to date as you or your son daughter niece nephew cousin parent or even dog plays this game. Twenty four hours a day. Then you can understand the hype about this game now. What is even more fascinating about. This game is what some browns have done by partnering with animal crossing for example marc jacobs release their own virtual collection online allowing users to dress avatar in the luxury clothes of the brand off so they entered a unique code. Only six of their favourite pieces were presented as they are a luxury designer brand off audible but one brown took this partnership to a whole new level. The branded gem oh in france in partnership with the agency caused beef decided that as physical shops are shocked. Why don't they opened a shop in a video game and that is exactly what they did. Their brand or ready to wear clothing was a hit in the animal. Crossing game as these types of clothes are exactly what people were buying obsessively during lockdown comfortable affordable and cozy. The video game was advertising in itself. And if you look on the blog of this article you will see the clothes referred directly to real pieces in real life role who wouldn't want a virtual shopping experience in their favorite video game. If you check out the blog page you'll see some images of the close in real life transported directly to avatars in the video game. This type of advertising is predicted only to rise in twenty twenty one number three product placement. This is thought to be the oldest trick in the book but we predict that. This trend has only just begun from stranger things to suits right down to friends. They're sneaky ways that bronze managed to incorporate their products into popular tv shows and movies. While sixty eight percent of product. Placements lasts for five seconds or less product placement is the largest in foster scoring market in the us generating billions of dollars in revenue which will only grow in twenty twenty one. The next time you sit down to watch your favorite netflix. Show look out for the cleverly place logos of brands to catch your is subconsciously. This is a multibillion dollar market in the advertising industry and it will expand to new heights in two thousand and twenty one for example. If you check out the blog page you will see that in a snapshot from the show stranger things. The logo of burger king could not have been less subtly placed in the image however other times the product or logo is so subtly placed that you might not even notice it the first time round. This is a multi billion dollar market in the advertising industry and it will expand to new heights in twenty twenty one number four nostalgia marketing the world. We live in is not only fast paced but driven strongly by looking towards the future. I also don't need to remind you of the struggles that our planet went through last year from the loss of loved ones due to covid nineteen the loss of houses due to bush fires. The loss of black lives in a fight for equality and so much else. I also can't put into words. The pain that some of us have felt during this year therefore we believe that nostalgia marketing will be boosted to new heights in twenty twenty one studies have shown then style gives our lives a sense of meaning and continuity there by having a positive effect on on mental wellbeing. It brings us a sense of happiness amid chaos and reminds people happier and simpler time thereby encouraging you to buy the product to remind you of all the happy memories nyc pepsi gucci. A mountain jew are a few brands that adopted such a strategy of marketing. And they use this. During twenty twenty. Whilst the wild was trying to navigate itself through unpredictable and unprecedented times for example cheetos included nostalgia marketing in that twenty twenty super bowl advert by introducing cheetos popcorn the advert featured the nostalgic feeling of eating a bag of cheetos up finishing with bright orange fingers. This is something that so many people who are watching the super bowl could relate to as they remember being in the yummy and messy situation when they were younger. We can therefore expect to see some blasts from the past appearing soon on your screens as brands triton transport. You back to the past with some old time favorites. This type of marketing is certainly not new. But walk goes around certainly comes back around and it seems like twenty twenty is where people can use a boost of happiness and a sense of nostalgia number five brand activism purpose driven advertising. We saved the best to lost. Twenty twenty was a year of so many surprises and filled to the brim with certainty and fair for the future. When the world was at a low point many brands were seen taking a stance by voicing their support for those that are struggling. Reebok twitter nyc vocally showed their support for the black lives matter movement through their social media pages. Some brands went even further by inserting brand activism. Into that branding. An even products for example ben and jerry's created the on fudge off future campaign in which they teamed up with the climate council and to fifty dot org australia to encourage the australian government to ditch fossil fuels and use renewable energy. Instead they created a whole new flavor of non dairy ice cream and passing allies it to address the australian prime minister directly saying day. Scott morris make fossil fuels history and a portion of the proceeds from each ice cream was donated to three fifty australia. This was ben. And jerry's way to voice that concern about their is about climate change and to use their power to drive a campaign to pressure the government to invest into one hundred percent renewable energies brand activism. Is trent that will grow to new highs. This year more and more brands are standing up for what they believe. In and this is what makes brands authentic nowadays at noon today we have seen firsthand that campaigns driven by a pappas gain not only ten times more engagement on their platforms but it also shows that browns are committed to
Imagine a life without Google
"Up one day and google. All of google is gone. G mail search. Google drive youtube google home. Google maps gone in australia. That world without google might not be that far off lawmakers. There are pushing for some regulations on the silicon valley giant and in response. Google has threatened to turn off its services in the entire country. Joining me discuss recode reporter and host of the new season of podcasts. You listen to called land of giants and it shrink affari history. Hey tiny so. The new season drops today. Congratulations everyone should listen to it right now. or after. this is over In this season you chronicle google's rise from tech startup to this global powerhouse that is now fighting with australian government walking. You tell us about australia. Tell me what's happening there with regulators and how this might play out. Yes so it's a real standoff between australian government and google and basically what the government wants is for google to pay publishers. More like newspapers magazines for new snippets. That show up. Google search but also and probably even more critically for google. They want google to open up their secret algorithms around how they rank results in search and notify any kind of news organization if they end up changing that algorithm and that is something that will really close chest and does not want to share and in land of the giants. We actually went into the origins of google's first revolutionary algorithm called page rank and You know why was it so important and something that you would never want to give away if you're google because that's exactly what makes you google. What would that mean to pull out of the country. Does that mean if someone in australia goes to. Google dot com. They don't get anything. Possibly it could mean that you cannot do a google search. You cannot Open g mail. I think that The full scope of it hasn't really been discussed because at this point they're negotiating right. It's a negotiation and google has said this is a last resort option. They would not wanna poll google's products. But who knows it could be something in between they could just block news articles from showing up so you could still find your local pizza hut. But you couldn't find an article about world politics. Yeah i mean it feels like this Matters to non. Australians which i assume is most of our listeners. apologies to those over there but for most listeners this is about one country. And you know they're fighting some tech giant. Whatever like. Tell me why i should care. The big deal is that this is kind of a template for how governments are going to deal with google in the future right because google and itself has become so powerful that it's almost like its own nation state and you know if a stray elia really wins in the standoff. It'll be a flex of power and so it could be something that we see happen. Not just a miss really about in england in the uk who knows maybe even in the us one day and it's a real test of who's gonna win and zooming out from this right. This is a conversation that's happening. Not just not just the united states but everywhere right about is google chew powerful. That's the theme. You look at during land of the giants. Tell me about how. Google might fair under a democratic administration that frankly like the republican administration that preceded. It is preparing serious. Antitrust action against the titans. That's rates for google right now. It is a very important critical and nerve wracking time. Because they're facing this historic lawsuit. The us government under president trump's administration has sued them. And said you know cues them being a monopoly and now this new administration under biden is inheriting that case and everyone is looking to see who is biden's new attorney general. Who is he going to pick to lead up. This google case is going to be even harder on google. Is he going to expand the scope of the case. How much attention is he going to give it. And we don't really know yet but we do know that there are really strong currents Within the democratic party pushing to be aggressive in breaking up google's power and that comes from people like elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. Who have campaigned around this idea and have a a strong progressive flank of supporters in the party so You know no one knows for sure. But let's say we do know that biden is feeling the pressure to take on big tech and to not be afraid to have his administration go after google and other big tech companies like amazon and facebook. So google is so big at this point that when we talk about antitrust action. We probably aren't really thinking big enough. Frankly i mean. Tell me if google were in australia or you know. Be broken up in the united states. Can you just give me like a sense of the vastness of google empire like. What are we taking for granted in this conversation. I think we take for granted a lot because we just use it every day. It's the calm this integral part of our lives. If google's products were to be pulled from the internet. I basically personally wouldn't probably be able to do my job or even get around with google maps or something like that right and google offers most of these products largely for free so to give google credit. You know they've made these tools. That are so incredibly helpful on the other hand. Are we to reliant on them should there be more competitors in the space. Those are the kinds of questions that politicians are asking right now.
Australian court rules terrorists can be imprisoned longer
"In Australia has ruled that a Muslim cleric who was jailed for leading a terrorist group can still be detained despite completing a 15 year sentence. Sharma Julio in Sydney has more details. Abdul Nacer Benbrika, a known supporter of Osama bin Laden, lost his appeal against the continuing detention order filed by the Australian government. The high court found that the law was valued as it protected the community from the threat of terrorism. Ben break, his lawyers had argued that his prolonged detention was unfair and that the federal government did not have the power to impose the order. The Muslim cleric and his followers were arrested in November 2000 and five after Australia strength and laws to detain those in the early stages of plotting terror attacks.
Is WA overreacting by locking down so much?
"Hello this is. Corona cast a daily podcast. All about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen. Tulloch position journalist alter norman swan. It's monday the first of february. That's right and yesterday. We were mocking the longest stretch. Nationwide without any luck transmission since february last year was fourteen consecutive days. But we've seen that stretch broken With a case announced in western australia yesterday norman male cortel quarantine security guard in his twenties. Who was working at the sheraton four points quarantine hotel and w i has not surprisingly jumped really hot on the web announced a really tough five lockdown basically. No one's going anywhere for five days until they figure out what's going on so one case and a really tough five day lockdown. Is this an overreaction. Or is this the right level of reaction. No i think it's the right level of reaction and the mandatory masks as well and they've just done everything to get this under control. It's one person but this person's been to a lot of different areas potentially a lot of contacts. Luckily so far his flatmates were are negative and they would be the people most at risk so the may well be very little if any spread here. But you just don't know and it's possible that he's got the uk variant of the virus since the uk very was on. That was on the floor of the people. He was speaking after him so one of the things they're doing is they're canceling weddings for the next five days like you say this Mosques are expected to be in place and a lot of other measures that have been put into place in norman. You've said basically since the very start of this podcast. If people can bear the cost him on set far back that the way to get on top of these fires is to go in hard into going to ease their limit to the hardness and early. Nece that you are prepared to endorse. This is still within your your realm if you want to control this virus. There's only one thing that works when you really when you when you don't know where the virus is and that is a longtime which stops people coming in contact with each other and running the risk of spreading the virus. You got to keep the virus away from other people. So the lockdown is what works now. There's no question. As new south wales has shown that guerrilla good contact tracing high testing ritz contact tracing. An isolationist required does make a difference and can get under control. But that's taken weeks in new south wales when there's been no uk variant the uk variant as people listening to chronic will know eddie homes on from the university of sydney a little while ago. Is that the wuhan. Virus spreads from one person to about two point five the uk variant spreads from one person to about three point four. That's probably the best way of thinking about it. Robin the percentage is a fifty percent or seventy percent more contagious so it is a lot more contagious and remember. This is a virus that spreads in clusters rather than evenly spread through the community. That's why these venues are so important to come to actually pin down get tested. Who were at those venues at those times published by the west australian government so it could be like southeasterly korea and queensland where it turned out to be a fisher on nice vizner to have and they're able to lift the lockdown early and that's great but a three four or five day locked on is much better than some stopping and starting not controlling the the virus which is what they've done and look what happens and the other problem and w. unlike new south wales and unlike victoria is they haven't had any community spread for ages knives since early be early last year and so people had returned to normal soon. Can't expect them to kind of do half of a social isolation process. You've really got to pull the whole population back. And then just your sees it up for five days and the you know the good news is likely to be that there hasn't spread but it's possible has in which case just got to give under
Google threatens to shut down in Australia over proposed tech law
"Google is threatening to shut down. Its search engine in australia. Over a proposed law that would require tech giant to pay publishers for news. Australia's prime minister fired back. Saying the country makes its own rules and doesn't respond to threats. The wsj's mike cherney has more this a pretty extreme threat. Google made and the reason that they made this is because they're locked in a dispute with the australian government over paying for news articles essentially paying australian media companies like newspapers for their content. This dispute also involves facebook because facebook also links to news articles on facebook social media platforms. So this has been going on for a while and what. Australia's trying to do is A world i. It's being basically watched locally because no jurisdiction has gone maybe quite this far as to try and compel these big tech companies to pay local publishers media companies in australia including local subsidiaries of newscorp owner of the wall street journal have supported that provision publishers. Argue that the law could help. Prevent the tech giant's from walking away from negotiations.
Australian coal exports reportedly banned by China
"Chinese state. Media is reporting today. That china has made official severe restrictions on the import of coal leaving hundreds of millions of tons of the stuff parked haplessly off the chinese coast in ships. That won't be talking. It is a severe and clearly symbolic expression of china's accelerating annoyance with australia. The two countries had long been profitably bound by china's fullness of australia's mineral resources the current episode of monocle. Twenty fours the foreign desk takes a broader look at the china. Australia spat in it. I speak to former australian. Prime minister and former australian diplomat to china kevin rudd. I began by asking him. Just how bad things are got most of us who have been but analysts said -ticipant in its relationship of the last several decades would site that in the near fifty year period since diplomatic relations were established in nineteen seventy two. This is the worst stage that the relationship is raised beds against all measures political diplomatic economic security human rights united. It's all gone right down. The too many contributing factors to this but indirect to question. It's a fifty year low. I think the way to analyze what's unfolding in. The of china relationship is to see it in terms of the normal outworkings all a great cow on the rise in this case but abnormally in this case the rise of a pow which is a one party state with an authoritarian political system. Fewing somewhat mckendall is taken on ole sees as well as seeking to adjust boundaries with its nighters maritime and land by his boundaries that is part of the reality but it does impact not just a straight but other american allies like japan the republic of korea in south southeast asia those in central asia even the russian federation bubble miata hand. What you've had is. An australian government said somewhat incapable differentiating between what i would describe as the operational characteristics of effective china's strategy and confusing that deliberately or otherwise on a continuing basis with a declaratory strategy which ends up being driven by domestic political imperatives. So it is. In fact the call these factors. In imprecise kerr relation with each other which actually produces the net result and frankly. It's an ungodly miss. The time for circuit breaker has well and truly come to prison. The mood for such circuit breaker has not yet arrived. But if you are not just necessarily this australian government but an australian government is there no grounds at all for concern about sinister designs. China may have on australia at this point. In recent months and years we've seen detention of australian journalists in china. There's been varies. Influence peddling scandals strode in michael burgess the director general of aco claims. There's more espionage. Dwayne australia right now than there was during the cold war. The key point here is what we conclude domestically in australia as constituting real threats to try national security by giving janis actions whether it's in state basis cyber cyber-attacks influence operations against his train. Politicians will the media or other such activities in dealing effectively. With each of those challenges it is not necessarily mandated that she didn't take out a mega fan every second day and proclaimed that from the rooftops is the constant differential i seek to explain between an operational strategy as opposed to a declaratory strategy. My advice to premise morrison repeatedly has been do more. Silas do more is in fact. A series of concrete measures enhancing on national security pows enhancing now intelligence assets enhancing fundamental economic cow enhancing out calculation growth in strengthening our alliances and relationships with countries. Around the world of just the united states but in southeast asia and beyond as well and that is gonna separate matter from proclaiming. I said every second tuesday morning. The original There's about two landing bondi beach by the chinese amphibious force. It's quite a different matter. Intelligent mature national strategy. Understand the difference between the two and the owners say practical example. The difference between the two look for example japan on a daily basis weekly bi assists in the last several years handled its relationship with china relatively stable notwithstanding the fact that japan is a annella. United states. Big is a liberal. Democracy see has tonners single loudest economic D has american military bases on its soil and e as a rolling territorial dispute with china chinese china sea of caucus data yet. Despite that the japan china economic relationship prestige relatively unmolested. Why because by the albay and supersonic plaisted looney eternal shall we say eastern virtue of shutting up from time to time as opposed to simply proclaiming everything from the rooftops that's effective strategy as opposed to opening your mouth full of time which is primarily driven ministries case by range of domestic political imperatives. Which in turn complicate the foreign policy agenda is saving to prosecute.

Trouble brewing for tennis in Australia
"We've had some news tonight from australia. That a lot of the plans that they'd had in place that we understood them to be from the interviews that criteria the tournament director done. All the idea. Was that players would come in. Mid-december do that. Two weeks of quarantine play all of the pre australian open tournaments in melbourne To reduce travel and potential spreading of the virus. And that has. We've been told tonight in reporting by tennis channel. Initially that is not going to be viable. That players are not going to be allowed to come into the country as things stand in december at all and the first day that they will be allowed to set foot in the country as the first of january. Which if they are required to do two weeks quarantine at that point would take them up to about three or four days before the australian open is due to begin which is hardly ideal at the very least and potentially threatens the entire australian tennis summa Certainly those preview those run-up tournaments that That they would hope to run whether the couple for some of the other events that they might bring over from brisbane and adelaide and sydney. We don't know officially wear tennis australia. Stand on this at the moment. We we've only heard this news in the last few hours and it does follow comments from the premier of victoria. Saying that it's absolutely not a done deal. Plays can come in in december you know because of the logistical issues of bringing all these people in and they've spent such a long time in lockdown getting rid of the virus dampening down to the fact that they've had apparently zero cases over the last couple of weeks new cases So we don't really know where we stunned. I think the what kind of expect they may end up doing if this continues in plaza not allowed to come until the end of december. The the first week in january is to try to coincide the two weeks of quarantine with those tournaments and be able to get permission for players to practice and play competitively. I would imagine in some sort of bubble whilst effectively quarantining and therefore that would make it doable for them. Not only to run additional tournaments but also to play the strain open. But catherine this is Just generally this is a pretty alarming state of affairs. isn't it given. it's not that far away now. Now we're talking about plays plays would have been booked in planning to travel in less than a month's time to australia significantly less than a month's time in in some someplace cases and particularly exum i think because because the tennis will the i thought okay. I mean the the barriers to entry to australian and the price of entry is incredibly high but once their once the tennis world is there and and post three days barriers. It's a it's a kind of safe haven for tennis to exist for while and and flourish for oil for that to be thrown into some uncertainty Is is quite discombobulating. Ready an i. I can only imagine how the players in the tools feel about it. I i completely respect the position of If the australian government absolutely i mean we are in a glass house in terms of criticizing the likes of australia's Approach to risk averse approach to To covid nineteen absolutely But yet the timing of it is is very disconcerting. Absolutely me i'd say something. I keeps coming back to me when we have in the events after the us. Open rome and run gar austin a couple of times match just mentioned. I'm watching this. And i'm still wondering whether it really is right. You know to see all this international travel when this is going on it. Just it's hard to put the two together as much as we love the sport and wanted to be out to be viable at the moment.

"australian government" Discussed on Here & Now
"From NPR and WBZ. I'm Tanya Moseley. I'm Jeremy It's here now and let's get more reaction to last night's debate which comes just two days before the Nevada caucuses. There were six Democratic candidates on stage last night but the newest one Michael Bloomberg is not on the ballot in Nevada. He's got his eyes on Super Tuesday. Which is coming up in twelve days and he took fire from all the other candidates Joe Biden Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren Amy Klobuchar and Pete Boot. `Age let's bring in. Npr's Osma holid- in Las Vegas. Hi Asthma so let's start with former mayor Bloomberg it was his first time on the national debate stage and many are saying he seemed unprepared for some of the pointed attacks. He faced including his support of stop and Frisk. Policies during his tenure. As mayor. Here he is. I've apologized to give nece but the bottom line is that we stopped too many people and we've got to make sure that we do something about criminal justice in this country. There is no great answer to a lot of these problems. If we took off everybody that was wrong. This office panel everybody. That was wrong on criminal justice at some time in the careers. That'd be nobody else up here. Even his own campaign staff have admitted he didn't do as well as expected. What are people saying today that he's actually having a rally in Salt Lake City in Utah today that that's going to be voting later in the calendar as you mentioned?
