"Parents are naturally worried for their children and it doesn't seem to take much to send them into a tizzy. and. It's not just parents. We as people are pretty prone to overreacting to the first piece of information we receive. Modern media makes the spreading of these new urban legends basically effortless. But false panics and hoaxes are far from a new invention. Always. been with us. Most people know the story surrounding Orson Welles radio play the war of the worlds by H. G. Wells. No relation it was presented in the form of a newscast detailing the invasion of earth by beings from another world clearly bent on our destruction. Listeners thought the broadcast was real. There was mayhem in the streets as as many as a million people fled their homes or armed themselves and made ready to fight off the alien hordes. We know all about the panic that this radio play cost it was in all the papers. Therein lies the problem. Newspapers of the day greatly exaggerated the situation. To begin with not that many people were tuned in to the Mercury Theatre on the air that evening only two percent of households with radios even heard the play. which repeatedly identified itself as such during the performance. Some CBS radio affiliates even cut away from the broadcast in favor of local programming further shrinking the potential audience. Most people were listening instead to the ratings, Juggernaut, ventriloquist at Gergen. I still fail to understand how a ventriloquist act really worked on the radio. If it makes you happy. So. Why then if so few people. and. Fewer still were confused by it did newspapers separately and independently make the situation sound much worse than it was. They were motivated by fear not of aliens but of the radio. The wireless radio was the first real threat to the superiority of the newspaper as the public's primary source of information. Reporters and editors saw this as an opportunity to prove to advertisers and regulators that radio was dangerous irresponsible and not to be trusted. A similar thing happened in. England. Twelve years earlier with a fictitious report that an angry mob of unemployed workers were running amok in London looting and destroying everything in sight. The National Gallery had been ransacked the Savoy hotel blown up. The houses of parliament were being attacked with trench mortars and the Big Ben. Clock, tower had been raised to the ground. Like any good radio play? The narration was accompanied by sound effects. Of Fear Few people did take to the streets, even fleeing past the famous buildings that had been reportedly destroyed while others desperately clogged police phone lines. The BBC tried to ease tensions by reminding people that the report was a comedy skit entitled broadcasting in the barricades. anding their message with London is safe Big Ben is still chiming and all his well. You can't trust the BBC at least we can still rely on armed forces, radio. People fought until nineteen, forty seven. When in May W v TR in Tokyo began to issue a series of bulletins about a twenty foot high monster that had risen from the sea to lay waste to the area. Bullets were useless against this dragon like creature listeners could hear terrified shrieks, people shouting orders over bullhorns, heavy weapons and Massu vehicles rolling by. When the beast reached downtown and the intrepid reporter who provided the play by play snuck closer, the monster opened its mouth. And congratulated T.. R. On its fifth anniversary in a high soprano voice. That's right an hour's worth of breaking news to pat themselves on the back. During the broadcast police phone lines were tied up with people trying to get information.

"Thanks so much for joining today Dan. Thank you so much for having me. Greatly appreciate you have on your podcast. Well, I, love talking about sales. That's one of my favorite subjects. So I I am thrilled to have you here I'd like to start by asking you. We're GONNA. Be Talking about B. Two B. Sales and B. Two B. Buyers and. I'm wondering. What kinds of pain points Do, they typically have during a purchasing process. That's a that's a great question, and I think a lot of things that B. Two B. buyers have is just uncertainty and we're kind of also in a world of uncertainty as kind of going on in the current situation, and that just adds more uncertainty and where the BB seller or the salesperson helps with that kind of to help alleviate that uncertainty, and typically what we see is kind of falls on a couple of key areas. One is consistency in quality of the product. Product, information the accuracy of product information, and as a company that sells these products as it start selling multiple different marketplaces the consistency of the quality and the accuracy of that information diminishes and as a buyer in a lot of the BBC base you're creating engineering products, chemical products, and it has to meet very specific specifications, and when you get into a world of uncertainty, you start to really worry or or question whether or not that product is going to work for you. and that's really what we started to see when I beyond our be report where we reached out to those `buyers and said, what are the things that you run out and see When it's really that. And we saw that ninety, two percents of those B2B buyers say if they get qualified salesperson that will really help them make it through this downturn and bring certainty in this this time of uncertainty. That's so interesting. Okay. So What do they mean by qualified salesperson mean someone who's knowledgeable about their circumstance as well as their own product, and when I say there I mean the the buyer. Yeah No Totally. So, we'll people really are looking for when they qualified is a strategic advisor, and when you think about what strategic advisor does is that they're helping guide you through purchasing decisions. They're looking out for your best interests. They understand what you're in the business of and starts to make recommendations on the products that make the most sense they think about how they can. Can help you reduce cost of doing business. They help you think about how they could be a part of your your revenue process. They start to tell you these are the things that we can do that. Make your job easier, and when they look at that, we saw that seventy one percent really want someone who knows their own products and. And Services and can go in there and say, Hey, listen, this is exactly what you need in order to be successful. Here's why what they don't want is someone who's acting as a sales per it's the sale, right? Like I want to I want something to I, want this transaction to go through that completely turns buyers off where it's like, Hey, look. Look Oh. You want to buy widget one. I'll sell that too because that's what you want. What they really want is someone who comes in and says, this is what really needs to happen in order to be successful and I understand your business. Here's why and here's how I can alleviate some of the uncertainty around what it is you're trying to do.

Is Part of it. Yes, you are correct on both counts, so that is pretty. Well. You know what that was more than I knew when I started researching this topic so congratulations. I didn't know about Britain but I did not know about. South Africa and I will not be referred to it as that from for the rest of the I promise so to begin with the conflict is commonly referred to as the second bower war. Since the first war, which was December eight, hundred, eighty, two, Martini one only lasted. A couple of months was smaller. It was just it was really a war. It was kind of a battle. The Word Bower B. O. E. R. means farmer. And it's the common term for Afrikaans speaking white South Africans descended from Dutch east India Company's original settlers at the Cape of Good Hope, so these are white. South Africans who speak Afrikaans which is. Like a sort of a weird hybrid between like Dutch and then. African it's kind of a cool language. In South Africa it is officially called the South African War. And, they also sometimes called the second Anglo Bower War and in fact, according to two thousand eleven BBC report. Most scholars prefer to call the war of eighteen thousand nine tonight to the South African. War, thereby acknowledging that all South Africans White and black were affected by the war, and many were participants all right Yup so. Why, why why did they go to war? So here's the war far away. Though so far away so it as as with many wars, there's a long history to it. So the origins were complex, and they stemmed from more than a century of conflict between the bowers and Britain, so let's with a little background, the first European Settlements Africa was founded at the Cape of Good Hope in sixteen fifty two. And thereafter administered as part of the Dutch Cape Colony. The Cape was governed by the Dutch east India Company until its bankruptcy, the late seventeen hundreds, and thereafter it was directly by the Netherlands. The Netherlands took over when the Dutch east India Company collapsed. The British occupied the Cape three times during the Napoleonic wars as a result of political turmoil in the Netherlands and the occupation became permanent after British forces defeated the Dutch at the battle of Blouberg in eighteen o six. So at the time, the colony was home to about twenty six thousand colonists settled under Dutch rule and a relative majority still represented old. Dutch families brought to the Cape during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. However close to one fourth of this demographic was of German origin and one sixth of French huguenot descent, so you got a little bit of a mix. It's mostly dislike dissenters like descendants of Dutch people from way back when but also a little bit of German a little bit of French.

Welcome you with weekend from the BBC World Service. My name's Paul Henley coming up later, the politics of social integration. Why the Danish government is keen on forcing parents in high immigrant neighborhoods to put their toddlers into daycare centers. If you have children with very very poor language skills. Very very poor social skills who have been isolated for five years before coming to school. Then we need to help these parents to realize that it's important to learn dangerous. It's important to get acquainted with Dana society. We'll discuss the pros and cons of that policy soon. Now, this wouldn't be weekend. Without the presence of two guests to give their personal perspective on the news and issues we discussed today, I'm joined for the rest of the program by Chitra Nagarajan, who's Nigerian writer and human rights activists. She's in our Legoff off studio and Matthew green is here with me in London, British writer and. Journalist for Reuters. Now Chitra welcome as a guest on this program. You've been an interviewee already when you talked about a literature, and theology that you put together how would you describe your your job these days, give us some idea of where you're coming from who you are good morning. Good morning. Mathew. It's a pleasure to be on weekends again. So I live and work in my degree in northeast Nigeria. I spend my time working on issues of human rights and peace building in northeast, Nigeria and then increasingly in the other countries of the Lake Chad basin. There are issues of human rights where you live onto. Yes. Unfortunately, as in many parts of the world, unfortunately. But I think it's fair to say that most of the guests on this program tend to come from well more metropolitan areas with perhaps fewer social problems than you come across on a daily basis. Tell us the kind of issues that you tackle. Well, I mean, no, 'this Nigeria has been experiencing conflict now for a long time. It'll be ten years next year since. Since we have seen violence in in the states of the northeast, and this is violence between armed opposition groups, commonly known as Graham and the Nigerian states, and then in the last couple of years, the other countries in the region as well to the work that I do really looks at promoting and protecting the human rights of women in particular, but also working with civilians on ways that they can protect themselves from an engaging with hepatitis as well, so am I spent a lot of time talking to you security agencies, the Nigerian military as well as community militias on human rights international humanitarian law answering protection and ways they can reduce the likelihood of harming civilians during the course of their operations. Welcome to the program. Chitter live from LEGO says Chitra Nagarajan much more to come from her ass from Matthew green, Matthew you've worked in some thirty countries for the for. Times and for Reuters over the years, and you've lived in Lagos haven't you? That's right. It's wonderful to be hearing from Nigeria. I was back in Lagos about a year ago myself for a couple of weeks, and I do miss the place, although I was disappointed to find that after returning officer about a ten year absence. That was still notable shortage of electricity. If any progress is being made on that Chitra, but it'll be great to return to Lego's one day and see the place lit up. What does that mean? So several hours a day without telling. Yeah. Yeah. No long long powercuts there. But it was fascinating on my last. Visit I I went to report on a small company called rent sauce founded by Nigerian entrepreneur who's working to install solar power across Lagos, which is long overdue, but really holds out the promise of a real revolution in energy in Nigeria. So it's exciting times as well. In the city Matthew urine, author of aftershock, which is a story of surviving pieces. You put it it's about post traumatic stress disorder is it. Yeah. That's right. I spent many years working in conflict zones. As a journalist including in Iraq and Afghanistan, but then a few years ago, I returned to the UK to rights aftershock, which documents the struggles of British military veterans and their families looking for ways to recover and heal from the trauma of war. And it was an amazing journey. I discovered some people doing some really fantastic work life saving work. A lot of people who although they've been through extraordinarily painful experiences had really come out the other side. And I think shows that former survivors where the military all civilian can make remarkable recoveries when they give him the right kind of support. Thank you, his office topic on the program today, the plastic straw, a little bit wider than that. But it's an example of something that could be consigned to history in European Union countries soon on Wednesday, the European parliament voted in favor of a ban on single use plastic products that would apply to such items as straws plates cutlery and cotton buds, which make up more than seventy percent of waste material in the world's oceans other plastics such as drink bottles will have to be collected separately and recycled at a rate of ninety percent by twenty twenty-five under EU law speaking during the debate before the vote the Irish MVP look mean Lukman Flanagan described encountering his first plastic cutlery in the nineteen seven. And he said nobody thought then that it will prove to be such a threat to the environment. At the time. We were worried our main worry on this planet was a nuclear holocaust little did. We realize that the plastic fork and spoon that I had in my hand was actually going to turn out to be more dangerous. And I say that now even with who we have in the White House by twenty fifty would be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish by wish one hundred thirty different marine species known to have ingested plastic could ban like this work elsewhere in the world, specifically could it work in the US? Peter Morici is an American economist and business professor at the university of Maryland. I asked him if he welcomed the legislation from the European parliament puzzled as to what the objective is if it's to reduce carbon that's fine. But you have to consider that a sweeping ban may cause producers or manufacturers to come up with solutions that are. Even more harmful to the environment. Let's take airplanes. There's a lot of plastic inside the cabins of airplanes that may never get reused is that single use. And what will it be replaced by you medal of some kind also and takes resources to make that metal just like it does plastic takes energy, and it's heavier as a consequence that may cause the airplane. Take get less gas mileage so to speak and carbon footprint. So those people who carry around a metal knife and fork in their bag when they go to work. So they don't have to use a plastic one. They're doing the wrong thing are they I'll I know things. So I don't think that's quite the same thing. I think avoiding the use of disposable plastic is not a bad thing to do. However, I don't know that just banning it outright. Across the board is necessarily going to achieve the most desirable results while it's not outright is it. It's just in the European Union and Chile that's a good start. No, it's outright inside the European Union. What I'm saying is that alternatives will have to be found, for example, if you don't use a plastic bottle, then you'll have to use a glass bottle. How much energy goes into the use of that glass bottle? How much energy goes into either recycling or destroying it in the landfill? One has to consider what the alternative is for each use of a single use plastic. I thought the whole point was that they were single use plastics and a glass bottle. You can take back your shop and refill and used as many times as you want at home. I mean that is the perceived wisdom, surely well, not necessarily. I haven't seen many returnable bottles in the United States had about twenty five years. Well, there are a lot modem in Europe. I can tell you. Well, that's fine. Also costs money those bottles up in use them. Again. It's not that single use plastics should be used. It's not that getting rid of them isn't a good thing. But you have to be careful about being sweeping. I'm just curious as to what the alternative to sweeping is. I mean, if you introduced legislation to ban single use plastics, it either bands or a dozen is it a good thing. Or is it not in your opinion? I don't think it's a good thing to have a sweeping ban should such measures be expanded. So that it becomes written into global trade deals that European Union. That is certainly not good for the world. I would like to see fewer single use plastics out there. Right. So what's your plastic forks or are going into restaurants, and being handed styrofoam cups and things of this nature? However, one was has to be judicious about this and think it through you have to be careful about how you go about this because you might end up using more energy rather than less. It depends on the energy use of the alternative. That's the problem. Right. You decide to just blindly throw a regulation on something. This is a good example of why is Brexit is this kind of unthinking mandate added parcels that as far as people to vote the way they do. But surely it boils down to whether it's better to use reusable items again, and again or to use plastic items if the science shows that you are damaging the environment less by not using plastic forks, surely there isn't much of a debate about it. Unless you represent the interests of plastic fork makers, I don't represent anyone's interest, by the way, I guess I've said over and over again to you getting rid of most single use plastics, probably makes pretty good sense. But getting rid of all, I don't know. And that's when bothers me about this legislation because they may be circumstances, which the alternative material actually causes more arms the environment because in the nature in the way, it's used Peter Morici who's an economist. And business professor at the univer- university of Maryland in the US. What did you make of that Chitra? Well, I understand what he's saying about having to look at the energy footprints of tentatives. But I do think that environment degradation and climate change that we're seeing in the world today if such a pressing issue, and we need. Sweeping urgent action at scale on this. Of course, looking at plastic is not new we've seen plastic bags being banned on the African continent, for example in Rwanda Kenya. Martiniere and Morocco. And of course across the world. We've also seen taxes on plastic bags. I think it's a very welcome development. My flight reservation is around the ban on plastic strollers in particular, and I've been reading the concerns from disability rights. Campaigners about this. And who talk about how many people with disabilities. Need plastic jaws in order to be able to drink liquids?.
