"bahamas" Discussed on YouTuber News: The Podcast
"Let it get you down with youtube. Unease and i'm also required now to editions for those terms conditions Just so we get sued my lawyers at doing a big thumbs up helpline mentioned before about. Ppi is not real you can. Use does not maintain any kind of business. Do not find that number. It is not a real number if it is a real number. Please not voted anyway. You should not take anything. I say seriously. Tempting conditions apply although i think them so you already know what they are but they still applying and with that we move onto story number two and this is about charleena demilio and i wanna to you guys about a sickness. It's been going around not covid. Nineteen of about that. But it's a It's a related sickness and it's been mostly afflicting celebrities. It's really sad. It's it's an illness that's affecting celebrities and it's called vacation fever and so many of these celebrities seem to be coming down with rita ora. Dua lipa kim kardashian. A now the tiktok stars and it's it's terrible condition where basically even though we're in a global pandemic. these celebrities are literally incapable of taking a vacation for five minutes. So they decide to get on a private plane break quarantine and just fly abroad and it's a very sad very sad affliction and unfortunately it has affected charlie demilio and her friends who went abroad to the bahamas over new years. Even though i don't know how you missed this. We aren't a global pandemic and speaking on the subject. Previously noah back said quote. It is what it is. You know which is a great great explanation. He said quote. I think especially in the business that we're in the business of being extremely rich and getting to do whatever you want all times especially in the business aware and it's like you need some time to disconnect for lil. You know that's what it was meant for a little trip to get away. Yeah i understand the concept of a vacation. No he's like guys. I don't think you understand what this was was. We wanted to get away from where we were to like a different place. Does that make sense. And he tried to excuse their behavior by saying quote we took a private jet so it was just us win on a private part of the island. We had a whole little cabana like. No one was near us. So that was his explanation and now charlie has angered some fans with her total non-response after being asked about the situation. Paparrazzi was questioning her very recently. And astor you know. Hey would you want to say about your trip. To the bahamas. And she replied quote no response as she said no response and that's annoyed law fans because it's like you don't even going to discuss this. You not going to own up to it. And hey i know people are going to rush to defend her and be like look. They took a private jet. They will distancing on a private partly eyelid. It's still so irresponsible to just get on a plane fly to different place. And it's so unnecessary lake. Here's a question. How many times did i go to the bahamas with my friends. When i was sixteen. The answer is zero times right. These people are like teenagers. they don't need to go to the bahamas and also if they want to home. Go to the bahamas in like four months when things are a little bit better. They all live in california. Where covert is absolutely rampant. Get on a plane. Even the possibility that they might spread covert to someone else like the pilots on the plane. The pilot said they're they're in a confined space with those people. They go to read the same as those people. Maybe they'll give the pilots covert. Maybe the pilots will give them covered. You don't know a remote part of the island. What's he didn't come into contact with any other human beings and you might be no they didn't. It was totally sites but why risk it. Why risk it and on top of that. I got annoyed about this with julie as well. It's like you have all these fans at home. Most of whom are just trapped inside bored out of their minds and then they look at you and you're just like rubbing in their face. You're in the bahamas. Having the time of your life like no one wants to see that stuff and then when questioned about it to just be like gardiner response is just such a cop out like not have a go at when people go oh benz yelling. Sixteen year go. Her age is irrelevant here. Like people are rich celebrities. You'll even lovely giant houses. Just stay in the giant house for a few more months until this global viral disease has died down. You don't need to be in the bahamas right now. You can wait a little bit longer. All the rest of us awaiting all the rest of us are bored and he is crazy. Noah beckoning know with this business where we need to get away. Yeah what about all those people work in other no health care about all those nurses. What about even with as delivery people who are considering stuff. What about all these people who are working nine to five every day through a pandemic the nurses would have gone to the bahamas. You don't think the doctors wanna go to the bahamas but the no go to the bahamas because they can't personally because they required to work and secondly because we're global pandemic man. I'm getting mad about this. Because i'm seeing so many celebrities do it and they never get away with that. They always get caught just just way way a few months and you can go wherever you want.

Is Tether a Fraud? Its Bank Says It's Not
"Last weekend. A medium post by a pseudonymously former bitcoin investor going. By the name crypto anonymous made the rounds on crypto twitter and elsewhere it was titled the bit short inside cryptos doomsday machine and alleged that the stable coin tether which is supposed to be bagged one to one. Us dollars is a quote highly probable. Fraud there are a lot of different. Strands that crypto anonymous wove together to present his or her hypothesis. But the one. That was people's zoomed in on concerned whether or not tether is fully backed so tether is run by tether limited and limited bank is deltec which is out where you work and that's a bank based in the bahamas and the part of the peace that people are concerned with was a section where curcio anonymous showed some tables of the foreign liabilities of domestic banks. And here she wrote quote from january twenty twenty two september twenty twenty the amount of all foreign currencies had by all the domestic banks in the bahamas increased only by six hundred million dollars going from four point seven billion to five point three billion and so the bahamian dollar is pegged to the us dollar one to one so it's the same in us dollars. Then he or she wrote but during the same period. Total issued tethers increased by almost five point four billion going from four point six billion to ten billion so great. Can you explain why this discrepancy exists. Well i've seen that article. Actually i find it very interesting that there's someone that apparently have time. Perfectly buying and selling crypto actually is often the case those article of so-called experts. They usually have time to market like geniuses and then started claim scenes that are kind of unpacked especially in that case they went to that. I think it's the digest central bank of the bahamas and it became overnight a banker expert which i loved because we always look to recruit but in that case they didn't deal it further about how that works first of all. They should have known that the bahamas is what they call them. Offshore jurisdictions so what it means offered ratings soon as you have domestic bank and international banks into domestic banged there is to type of licensed linked to it. You have what they call the authorized dealer license and you'll try agent license deltec dual own authorize agent license which is a license that allowed him to custody. Bahamian don't have what we call an authorized dealer license so when it comes to cash on deposit we cannot old any in dollars cash deposit and at the same time because we cannot all those dollars. Behave in dollars. We cannot serve local customer so what we have is we have along that authorization license. We have an international bank license. Or i think it's called restricted license as well so in fact for that report and i'm sorry for that person because i guess he thought he was onto something. We are not a domestic bank for a reported deposit and actually if he went and the little effort to go indego bit about the size of the bahamian market of thinking would have found out that the entire massive banks have around two hundred billion dollars in assets. I believe and we are part of that. So we are not a domestic bank aside of authorized agent license but that is irrelevant business for us and maybe be much must be reported. We are an international bank and that is part of the international aspect. That's why i did answer it to some people asking but you are domestic within no because we cannot take domestic customer and we cannot hold domestic him daughters so that report is actually a nut relevant and nothing to be in there

She would make my school uniform. She would make her clothes for work. She do home to core. Whatever we needed she would just whip it up and made it seem easy. I i remember some watching her. Do the pleats. My sister and i went to private school. And all skirts were pleated and she would just sit at the machine. No pattern no markings. Just follow the. Please fold aplly all the way around and had whip on the beltway spanned and ham up at it just seems so effortless and that's what sewing was for me. It was it looked effortless. It look utilitarian.

It was a drama ministry through and we would put on drama sketches our school and go to churches and travel around the schools in the bahamas and then ultimately part of that drama turned into a clown ministry where we would perform for younger kids in schools at parties and some of those parties actually funded trips to cuba and the uk in wales.

The Bush lands of Australia had rough years when it came to natural disasters and reported on these developments in real time but we got thinking what happened when the camera crews packed up and went home. What does it look like then? We'll that's what we're going to talk about today because throughout this week as we mark the holiday season start here is GonNa take you to some of the places that are forever changed by the events of Twenty nineteen. We're GONNA find out what has happened since we're GONNA start with one of those natural disasters. I was talking about a place. Were thousands of lives will never be the same residents in the Bahamas Gracie for a near direct hit of hurricane. Dorian forecasters predicting eighteen wins at least as high as one hundred and forty five miles per hour and the storm surge up to fifteen feet. The Bahamas is a huge collection of islands. But as Hurricane Doreen approached approached. It grew way bigger than anyone they're expected and it did the one thing you do not want a category five storm to do it stopped. It just hovered hovered directly over the small flat. Chain of islands known as Avocado homes shredded violent winds ripping off roofs toppling trees and of course taking power and cell service concrete structures. What turned to dust as if a massive bomb had exploded loaded with atomic force? And you might have heard of the horror stories. You might have seen some of the pictures but we had one of the only teams on Avocado as it rolled ashore. It was our correspondent respondent. Marcus Moore and his producer Scott Shulman and Kristin Otto and recently. I gotTA check in and ask them to describe the day that they've not even really discussed with a lot of our colleagues here at ABC News Eight guys. Thanks for being with me Marcus I remember you checked in with us during the storm from like this. This utility Liddy closet you guys were holed up in for hours just concrete on all sides of you. Can you just take me into the moment where the eye passes over you guys. It's finally only calm for a minute. At least I chance to see how bad it is. What are those moments? Like the the first opportunity we had to go out go outside side was when the I had had arrived you can see in rushing by down there. I'm sure our car is gone. No word for this well. We had endured those We along with the the residents people who who stayed on the islands had endured these two two hundred plus mile per hour wind gusts in these sustained winds and the rain and the first thing I saw when I stepped out was the storm. Surge the The torrent of water that that surrounded the entire building that we were in and water for as far as the I could see and then we also saw that the building directly next to us it had collapsed. Yeah the storm just sat over the Bahamas for at least twenty four hours. Where just didn't move? The freight completely moved in. The Fridge is out of the thrash so after being in that utility closet for about five hours we poke our heads out and said okay. I think it's safe enough for us to try to get upstairs into her condo. I wanted to see what was left of my Our our rental van wash here so I looked outside died and I saw a guy sitting in the van in his underwear weights. Scott there's a guy in your rental van. He came out and and we were. We were talking to him Yeah because I don't like anybody. He explained that he was in his house and move from one closet to another he. He was in his kitchen closet when the whole house began to collapse around him. I'd better get out of here. And he was literally being washed out to sea. He grabbed onto our van There was a broken window. He was able to open the door and he sat in our van for two hours during some of the heaviest Wind over a two hundred miles an hour and he's sitting in our van with You know like three or four feet of water rising around him and as we're talking to him on the balcony of of our condo here this screaming we have some people yelling The screaming over here there in the water and Marcus told me that it looked like there were three or four people yelling for help I don't think we can we get over to them. Can we get it over to them. Is there any way to on the other side of this rushing river. There really was a road but the the water had risen so much it was rushing like I like like a river in I mean it just seemed clear that if somebody go over there to help them they were going to die. So guy grabs on your van. Keep from drowning. You help him. You're taking him upstairs to get to safety. And then more people are asking you for help and you go to them. Initially I was I was so afraid for for Scott Because you know he jumped and straight into action a ran across you know through the water jumping a fence and clearing all of this debris that was around and and you don't know if the if there's power lines that were active if you were to get electrocuted or if there's some bit of debris that you know he could get caught on and in and be injured swam sweet. Just just yelling at them. Swim Swim Swim to me. I kept screaming. It seemed like an eternity. I was screaming at them for probably ninety ninety seconds maybe two minutes they were like we. Can't we need a rope. I said I don't have a rope. I don't have time to go get a rope. I said you need to just jump jump in the water and swim this way. He swim this way. This way. I mean what was going through. My mind was that I was telling them to jump in the water and swim but thinking you know my God. What if they get washed out to sea enough to live with that for the rest of my life that I told them to a jump in and they they all jumped in and they swim toward us and thank God we were able to pull them out of the water? Don't be don't be afraid. You're going to be fine. When he finds one of them was bleeding from her leg they were all panicky? Yeah we'll be the woman the older woman was missy. She was in her underwear because the storm it literally played their clothing off. It was a frantic scene but it was. It was also just incredibly gratifying. That that that that they made it across and you know we could. We could could save them because it was just. I'm sure they would have been swept away at the time. You're GONNA be fine. Listen to you hear me. You're going to be fine. You're going to be case. Signed a looking back on this Once again reminded of the insignificant I am but at the same time time. How when these opportunities present themselves these these these massive storms or whatever it may be you have you have one small chance? Even though you're in significant to make as significant difference I went for a walk to the hotel part of the building go get something with our affiliate w. p. l. g. from one of their rooms and someone came up to me and said look. I used to live now down the road. We're all here together. We WanNa make sure you guys have everything you need. If if you need anything please let us know because we know the longer you're here the more video is GonNa get out in the more The rest of the world is going to know how much help we really need so it was just a really. You know you're there to cover story but now you're kind of part of the story and you're part of the community even just so briefly I've got to tell you. I've covered a number of storms storms. Not As many as Scott but every single storm is is a reminder of how fragile life can be and you have a community that has been will be starting from a clean slate essentially and They have a long road to recovery.

"The first thing that has not happened which really concerned the international community is there's been no esscalation. Hostilities between india and pakistan listeners may recall that at the beginning of the year indian pakistan almost went to war after the suicide bombing of indian paramilitary forces in kashmir that led to an upsurge in ever fair but fortunately both sides decided to exercise restraint so at the start of the month when india took this action. There was obviously agree deal of concern about nuclear powers going to war but i think all of this is bluster. Both sides recognize that the cost of war would be devastating. So what do you think this tells us about the state of india today hindu-majority majority country but a very large muslim minority that feels i think eclipsed india's in the same category in turkey as china hyper-nationalism mm-hmm. We are living in an era of hyper-nationalism. I've been struck by the fact that this so little international condemnation to india after it carried out its act in a way states are able to act in a daring fashion really recognizing. The condemnation of the international community is not going to matter much. How much did modi's he's revoking a article three seventy start or maybe restart a conversation in kashmir about independence the two ways of looking at this the narrative within pakistan stunt has been the kashmir needs a referendum that kush media should decide whether they become an independent nation with a did remain part of india over the they become a part of pakistan has changed over time. There are a number of disaffected young schmead yesterday who i think if you go and speak peak with them who don't like the idea of kashmir being about of pakistan but at the same time there's a puget polarization on the ground on what independence would actually mean what would an independent kashmir actually look like a landlocked state with very limited access to trade so not really in this surreal state where they're suffering on a daily basis all the depredations brought to them by the india nam forces and the police on the ground at the same time.

"By the united states as very reminiscent of the peres peace talks to end the vietnam war <hes> before we sat down out of the table it was already clear that these were surrender talks and it is the afghan government and the afghan people that are going to pay the price in the piece. You wrote ambassador ambassador with eight other former u._s. Ambassador you say that it is not even clear whether peace in afghanistan is possible which is in itself kind of a stunning statement but you also say a major troop withdrawal must be contingent on a final peace so if peace is lose of how long will u._s. Troops stay in afghanistan. We need eight eight right-sized force which i think we have had now and a long term commitment. There's not a high price to pay neither in blood orange treasure. I would see it as a pretty good insurance policy against eight return say of nine eleven to maintain that presence as long as we need to and a return to nine eleven i a as as a safe haven for terrorists and extremists to kind of plot but that's the key security point in all of this is the taliban is no kinder gentler than they were prior to nine eleven when they ran that country they seek to run it again so when they come back. It's a pretty safe bet. Al qaeda will come back with him. We've seen in this movie before and to set the stage for what we saw. In nine eleven to me is incomprehensible and indefensible all that despite the pledge in the deal to to break the alliance with al qaeda the taliban will say anything. We want them to say right now because they know once we go. We're not gonna come back. There is a next step in this piece deals. I understand that would be the taliban negotiating with the afghan government. Does that encourage you not at all. I once we have signed our surrender. Our withdrawal agreement the taliban is not going to concede anything to the afghan government and frankly. I would be surprised iced if those talks ever take place ambassador. We're just days away now from another nine eleven anniversary. What was it like a writing this opinion piece knowing knowing what the roots were of this war well.

He's the one who invited no but he says this year. The environment is too sensitive to bring an israeli on stage. He lists a number of reasons among them. The fact that israel just bound to u._s. Congresswoman who support the boycott israel movement went from entering the country on an official trip. One of them was representative rashida to leave a palestinian american. America's comedy is about pushing boundaries stories but there are limits. We don't offend people you know <hes> we do want to push people to think and push people to expand their horizons a little bit but that doesn't mean you want to offend end the sensibilities of a hole so we have to be careful earlier on the way to the show no. I'm told me she understands the sensitivities. I don't wanna wanna avoid the reality. The reality sucks you know. The palestinians are living under occupation. Were naughty but the palestinian comedians invited me because they believe i believe that there is something to be done so maybe it's not the right timing right now and i still have to wait a bit but it's the beginning of something a few days later norm. No i'm leaves for the u._s. To develop her trilingual show but even though she might find more receptive crowd there for her sharply political humor she's not planning to stay. She wants to bring her comedy back home. For the world naomi's jerusalem the center.

"A lot more about the moon and it would only be after after that that we'd start talking about actually sending a mission to land on the moon <hes> and then drill under the ice and explore under the ocean there so we're talking it could be a few decades so i couldn't hold my breath for news about aliens on europa anytime soon. No not quite yet but you can stay tuned for something else. That actually might strike a bit closer to home this coming season <hes> in just a few weeks. Actually britney is going to be heading back down an article this time to the thwaites glacier. I know the world did a big series on thwaites this this past spring. This is a glacier that at risk of catastrophically collapsing it could trigger a rise in sea level of up to eleven feet so now now brittany is hoping i spend can get to that spot where thwaites glacier lifts off the seabed and starts floating so this is a very delicate in crucial point for that glacier. That's incredible incredible so this tool. It's not just about europa millions of miles away up in up in the sky. It's using it to help us figure out antarctica with well exactly if they can get it down there it can make three dimensional maps of the area down there and <hes> tell scientists the physics of what's happening there and now bill tells a lot a lot about the stability of the glacier were motivated in the long run by getting the state of that will send us into space but there's important climate problems and really elitist unknowns about the earth that we live in and so by thinking about it like a spacecraft problem. You're actually able to see the earth and kind of a new way so by using this attack that we're developing to eventually go to other worlds were able to get to these places where we wouldn't otherwise get to here on earth and enter some pretty tricky questions about our own planet and its future caitlyn sacks from nova.

"Rope. Oh because it's the most earth lake place i can think of in some interesting ways and the reason for it is because it's one of the only places that has had geologic geologic activity and an ocean over the history of the solar system schmidt hopes one day to be able to explore the frozen over ocean on europa to search for signs of life but i she's testing out the kind of equipment that might help her do that here. On earth our colleague caitlin sacks from nova interviewed brittany schmidt kaylin. You talked with her in a rather unlikely place. Yes about as close to europa. Certainly i will ever get britney testing of robot underneath the ice in antarctica and it really does feel like another planet. Her research is a forty five minutes snowmobile ride away from mcmurdo station which is the largest u._s. Research station on the continent and it sits on sea ice and so this frozen ocean shell is very similar similar to what we might find on other worlds in our solar system and so the spot in antarctica is a perfect playground to figure out how even start to explore explored these icy moons those moons such as europa which is our main focus are thick ice shelves on top of a global ocean and so we're interested in one day being able to explore are those environments in the meantime. We're trying to work here kind of in our backyard to figure this out. I wouldn't exactly consider this backyard well. When you think about europa all day long it's not so weird to think of antarctica as your backyard so what does the work that schmidt is doing an aunt arctic. It's going to eventually translate to you this moon. Her team has developed. A robotic vehicle called ice fionn. It's about twelve feet long and it looks like a torpedo but it's loaded with scientific typic- sensors and what they do is they bring it onto the ice drill a hole through the ice shell they were going to start going down and then the launch under the ice <music> explore underneath the ice. They're all figures this ice that they're drilling through right here. It's about twelve feet thick on europa. It will be much thicker and what's remarkable about this mission. Is it really does kind of feel like a nasa mission. They have mission control. It's little ten right out there on the ice. Protest members of the team are communicating over radios as they launched the robot launch they pilot it using of all things a playstation controller over towards a nearby glacier for slowing along the front of the glacier. You're getting an idea of the depth of the ice in front of us and explore the underside of that glacier or follow this feature staying under the sea ice so there you've got the land what they're trying to do is find out what instruments are actually most useful for exploring this under ice environment. We have four analog camera up down h._d. Cameras because we have four three maps of the hard to reach spots that we couldn't get divers or boats too so in the case of antarctica. We're using it now. What have they been finding a lot of what this mission is about is just starting to figure out what technology works and what doesn't for exploring such an environment <hes> what information is useful to collect. What sensors would they want to load onto a robot that they then launch into outer space but in addition to that they're also learning more more about the physics of ocean ice interactions. The physical processes are the same here in antarctica as they would be on europa so coming to an article that gives us the physics that we need to improve our models of how europa works. It's interesting because the physical processes may be similar to europa oba but of course we can't do anything till we get this tool way up there. In how close are we to that what we are still a ways off. There is commission launching in the mid twenty twenty is called the europa clipper mission and that will be a survey mission from <hes> from orbit which tells a lot more about the moon and it would only be after after that that we'd start talking about actually sending a mission to land on the moon <hes> and then drill under the ice and explore under the ocean there so we're talking it could be a few decades so i couldn't hold my breath for news about aliens on europa anytime soon. No not quite yet but you can stay tuned for something.

"Rifkind. He's a former foreign secretary and former conservative member of parliament. He's been a vocal critic of bars johnson's handling of brexit if you were still an m._p. Would you voted against boris johnson yesterday. Would you be victim of johnson's johnson's purge right now. Yes i would've voted against the government essentially because i think we are a parliamentary democracy and parliament must have the loss word not the government one of the expelled m._p.'s told the bbc that the conservative party has become the brexit party rebadged. I'm guessing that means rebranded. Do you agree with that. Well i agree with that. As long as it's not misunderstood what that means in the case of the conservative party we have this massive subdivision on brexit on european union if and when that is resolved even at this moment in time there's no noticeable division within the conservative party <music> on oldest social issues that normally dominate the political debate social and economic policy <hes> foreign policy defense policy the conservative party and the government is extremely united but when the prime minister boris johnson is expelling members because they don't vote his way. I mean isn't that existential. I mean that's a crisis well. It is the crisis but it's a different kind of crisis. It is not an unacceptable in principle that if a if a government makes an issue a matter of confidence <hes> if it's an an ps or some of them do not vote with the government then there's certainly precedent for the whip having been withdrawn what makes it this footage on this occasion that we're not just talking about the individual and of course of the last two years johnson and his colleagues many of whom are now in cabinet who were themselves defying three line whips and voting against their own government on brexit policy and edward penalized in this way political parties do change over time. I mean the republicans in the u._s. Used to be the party abraham lincoln <hes> of teddy roosevelt roosevelt bailed because has it got to conservative <hes> so do you accept that. Maybe a similar change is happening to the conservatives in the u._k. Remember dr conservative party is the oldest the political party in the world and why is it survived because it's constantly changing to the changing needs of society. If we were having this conversation twenty years sokaia the labor party was too hostile to the european union and the conservative party was strongly in favour. The tory thought he served a party has has never really been ideal. I idealogical ideologies socialism communism fascism. They come to go disappear. The conservative party's been more about principles. Invite us and some people are worried that on the brexit issue the conservative party does sound ideological and as for these twenty one members of the rebel alliance who went directly against their party's leader johnson is his direct instructions and threats. Do you see that act as one of political courage the way that diverted cannoli be admired what they were doing was in the best traditions of democracy regardless of whether you agree with it or not. I have to ask lee wondering why republicans in the u._s. Have not done the same to president. Is it in trump well. I i do ask that question. I mean i know the united states very well and i have a lot of admiration for the republican party but frankly none of them virtually none the months mr trump or thought thought is a suitable candidate to be president of the united states and they've all caved and i can. I speak personally. I'm very sad about god malcolm rifkind foreign secretary and former conservative member of parliament. Thank you very much there. Malcolm appreciate it. Thank you very much.

The winds were one sixty one eighty gusting. We had some one ninety s even as we've got record of two hundred when we're on around one hundred miles an hour we eat. We went out out. We went out and chat. That's okay okay here. We go again yeah yeah. You're good.

How will you be able to receive this material. Though with the airport is completely -pletely submerged. We have harbor hair that we have tropical chip and sales here. Mediterranean chip sales here small ferry out of fort lauderdale call paul bulgaria sales here we have we have plenty of ocean transport to make it happen. The air is only dire emergency. Get it here now. Food supplies light stuff that you can put on an airplane. What about drinking water presumably a lot of the water right now contaminated it could be we haven't <hes> haven't secured that information nation yet but now we have wells here that are fairly good. We might be okay in the water department. We feel like we welby <hes> but again. I won't know that until i walk into this meeting right now final final question at a <hes> so many discouraging reports from people on the islands. Where are you finding hope right now. We're christian community where christian nation we're very religious god's support and he's it's by his grace that i'm even on his phone.

"Rescue effort for devastated did island nation also today. You've heard the phrase. I didn't leave my party. My party left made for a large group of conservatives in the u._k. Their party has actually picked them out and are you in the market for a new job. If you're a man on the shorter side speaks some french and willing to relocate to a remote island. There's a gig for you so i'm looking for somebody who is obviously interested in napoleon somebody c._w._c. I'm marco werman. The stories are more today here on the world. I'm marco werman. This is the world the aerial footage we're now seeing from. The bahamas is astonishing desperate. Residents stranded on rooftops ops homes hospitals other public buildings and an airport underwater entire neighborhoods that look like they've been put through a wood chipper. Hurricane dorian is is one of the most powerful storms ever recorded in the atlantic. The prime minister of the bahamas hubert menace said some parts of his country have been decimated. Communications are also down on throughout much of the bahamas. We spoke with eddie juan two days ago on monday. He told us that he hadn't heard from his family. Including his twelve year old daughter in abaco one of the islands islands hardest hit by hurricane doreen. We managed to get through to eddie again today through his watts app account. He's the chairman of the bahamas air and sea rescue association in grand bahama homma. I asked him if he's been touched with his loved ones. I've heard just through the grapevine that they are okay but as far as physically talking to anybody eddie. No i have not well. We'll keep our hopes for them up. We also know that grand bahama just in terms of infrastructure and damage was one of the hardest artist hit islands in the bahamas. What are you seeing today. Hi eddie you there. Hello hi eddie. It's marco and i think we just <hes> got cut off. The what's app is hit messed. That's okay. We'll keep going until we get as many questions as we can ask in terms of just sheer damage to the island's. You're in grand bahama. It was hit pretty hard. What have you been seeing today not total destruction but probably eighty percent of the flood was our biggest concern which is our biggest problem is well just flood flood flood flood. We had people in home. Some people who drowned hide in their addicts and we're talking about two story buildings in some cases that the water just kept rising and rising isan people were a ten foot ceilings and their homes are in the addicts in the water just came up in certain areas. I mean beyond. I can't talk about it without getting choked up for the most part but <hes> the baz recited me. You know you have to work. You have to do what you have to do but the human part of me is devastated. My sister and abbott lost her home and nephew lost their home in this family my daughter again. I haven't spoken with her alright. Every time i think about her as you just mentioned her name r talk about her. It's choke me up until i can hear her voice or at least talk to her on whatsapp or some sort of communication of of any sort whatsoever. I'll be happy with but right now. Running around him actually caught me right now walking into what we call command emergency center because obviously being batra. I'm going to meet with the minister of grand bahama mr crazy thomson <hes> dawn cornish ireland administrator and several other people right now in the government to try and formulate what we're going to do how we're going to do it. How are we going to get some food supplies over here. How are we gonna feed a lot of people who've lost their homes have lost primarily everything. They had other than what they were wearing. It's a bad case grand bahama and i can only just imagine abacus. They're they're fifty times worse than us. Well let's start with the very basics and and that's just rescuing people who have survived the storm. I mean i know on monday. You were trying to get people out but did the storm mean that you had to suspend rescue operations nations we did when it became possible and probable to do it without risk and other human life the rescuers to rescue people dan yes. We had to hold off and stand down for a couple of hours here in a couple of hours there but virtually we're out there at times. We should not have been out there. The winds.

"The next thirty years most of that electricity comes from burning fossil fuels so that means more greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change and it's a cycle right hotter temperatures lead to more air conditioning which could lead to even hotter temperatures. The growth in air conditioning is going to come from places where the weather is hot and incomes are growing so thanks sub saharan africa and especially india. I visit my grandparents in mumbai in india <hes> pretty much every year every other year than at the time i was growing up in canada so so i wasn't really used to the heat much so i would constantly complain. That's uh swath rahman. He's a scientist at u._c._l._a. He studies how materials interact with heat and light and he can trace some of that interest back to those hot summers with his grandparents in the eighties nineties he says at the time practically basically no one had air conditioning and certainly not his grandparents for them. It was an unimaginable luxury. You know associated typically with like five star hotels or the very rich now pretty much every apartment around where my grandmother now lives has an air conditioner. These days rama's working on ways to make air conditioning more energy-efficient. He developed a material. That's inspired by something pretty old. How ancient persians made ice in the desert so they'd pour water water into a shallow pool and then at night the water would freeze even though the air temperature in the desert was above freezing that's possible because because all objects give off heat most of that he gets trapped in the atmosphere but a small portion goes up to space. I kid you not not so back to that pool of water in ancient persia. It's just sending out more heat than it gets back from the skies a whole and so because of that the surface that's facing the sky will naturally go down below the air temperature. The caveat is this national. Cooling effect only happens at night because during the day the son gets in the way so romans invention. Let's heat escape into space but also reflects the sun when you combine these two things you get very counterintuitive fact so it's a material which when it's outside facing the sky and the sun is actually gonna stay colder than the air temperature rahman's company sky cool systems is making roof panels coated in this reflective material and the panels can be incorporated into a building existing a._c. system making it about twenty percent more proficient. Rahman isn't the only one working on ways to cool us down. There are tons of ideas out there like a giant lung.
