"Scott speed was raced all over the world and all these different road courses. Help me help us understand. Like how does he take that and make that so productive in winning at cinema. I think there's a lot unpack here. Start sort of the beginning of all this where we're going. This and first and foremost. I absolutely you know understand where he's coming from. Which is the at the side of things that you jeff talked about what he's talking about with all the homework that is absolutely become in the last i'd say decade and especially in the last five seven years. If you're not doing the homework putting the work as a driver could come series. You're not going to be successful. There's so much information available at this time to a driver that didn't exist fifteen years ago that you can't help but have to be you know look at certain things and have were your disposal than you did. And if you're not taking advantage of that you're just going to be successful. It's just plain simple Church will be hit or miss but the ones that really rise up to become you're consistent. Champs senior consistent winners are the ones doing the homework. Because you know as i said. Everyone's very close in. The country's drivers are very close cars. Close what becomes your edges. The little st- tiny things. You can find the outdo someone who's at the same exact count levels you. That's the the cup series is really the only place. Where if you're a top twenty worldwide driver. You're going to get into position where there's nineteen others that exact same talent levels. You saw how you're going to be right. That's what nascar cup series racing it so back. My what a lot impact. Their fifteen years ago. I started working with a coach at the time. And this was a new concept in racing to have a coach and then one was on the first major motorsport series to really accept having coaches. They've driver coaches that. Come in on the teams and there was always a stigma driving where especially in the nascar world where drivers she just figured it out right but then you look at other sports like football and you have a qb coach simply for the quarterback because he's a very integral port position who needs some help figuring out some outside. Is well drivers. It's like there's no more position driver. It's the rubber meets the road. How could they not have held. So i think a trend. We've seen the last five years has been drivers searching for that help. Searching for those outside is the knowledge routes is that can guide them in a direction or help them figure out. Things be here at often. Drivers saying i put into work or talk show and they they went and worked on a simulator in bulbous. Because it's no different than football or other sports where you need a coach and you need it. Helps to have an outside said is doing any project. If you're doing a school project you'd like to have Outside is will when you're professional rates. Go to the top of the cup series lead. You like to help. I mean that's that's pretty normal. So i think what tiles talking about working with scott speed. You know other guys out there. Other professional coaches indycar. There's still a lot of those many professional coaches because the driver is so important. The fractions of difference between first and twentieth is so close driver. Coaches are are integral. There i think in the coming decade especially the next gen car. That will almost become a position on team. Which is you will have driver specific people that are about dr reforms driver coaching driver data going through the driver data zone on and so forth. That will be a one of the most integral parts of the race team. Here in the next era and the departure is the the reason. I want to start fifteen twenty years ago. Was that a driver coach. Fifty twenty years ago was some guy who wanna race or something getting on the spot or stand and being like. I don't think you're doing that right. I don't think you're doing that right now. It is far more to the football level of understanding how you get the best performance out of a driver. And that's who that person to be and they might have dr inexperienced or they might not but they will be someone that's designed to get the best performance out you'd be and the reason it's become so much more finely tuned that you're talking about like versus the guy standing up on the spot or stan jason. Yeah it looks. It's because of that data. It's because they can look until you exactly. You're getting beat right here in this. Turn because you're not breaking hard for in the pits. You're you're you're getting beat on your rolling speed here here and here in these sectors is at essentially what the data gives you a one hundred percent. That was a big. You know that was a big unlocked for the driver's side of things to have the and t. data or the just to have driver input data that we only have testing before that before about twelve years ago. Thirteen years ago. Dr fish came around. That was one of the big breakthroughs from the guy standing on the side of the track. Telling you what to do. Two years overlays of university of cards. You could see line. Differences speed differences a little bit that would serve the evolution and then when asked him data came in driver input data all the time that opened up a floodgate of right now. We can see exactly what you're doing. What the other guy is doing plus combined that with the when the car will combine that with dark fish the overlays and they have these massive That breakdown everything.

Nagorno-Karabakh truce frays amid reports of new shelling
"Alliance to mano, and we're joined by Professor Brenda Shaffer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. I begin with the news. This is Reuters. Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old. Body off his daughter. There's a girl who was killed whose birthday was on our additional day, which is the way it is October, so Visit when we go into a cease fire when we're going to come into a negotiation, I want people to understand. If you look at the emotions on the outside when we go Talk to people who do this kind of thing's Ah, Professor. There is a video I have seen

Fighting Breaks Out In Disputed Territory Of Nagorno-Karabakh
"Nagorno-karabakh is a disputed territory that's internationally recognized as part of. Azerbaijan. But it's populated and governed by ethnic Armenians between one thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, four as a by John and Armenia afford a war over the clave which killed thirty thousand people. Fighting. Between the two sides has now resumed and there's concern the conflict could widen Turkey which backs Azerbaijan has been accused of stoking tensions. We'll joining me is a Dorien Jones our correspondent in Istanbul. Doyenne. What's the extent of Turkish involvement in this latest fighting or Turkey is by John's closest ally and they have very close military links have something region of ten military exercises every year volving air force soldiers, special forces, and there are deep deep military ties between the countries and also turkeys one of the major arms suppliers for as John in particularly drones which have been used extensively in the fighting but it's also allegations from Armenia that Turkish fighter jets have shot down one of Armenian planes. That has been denied by Ankara, and also that he's also been sending Syrian fighters to backup ZAERI forces in the conflict again, acclaimed nine by. they've to be growing. Independent evidence to support those claims. Now why has the fighting flared at this particular time? Well, this is being this conflict is being simmering for decades. Now, it's much colder a frozen conflict and a has been frustration by Azerbaijan in the lead up to this latest outbreak in fighting the base of the international community had ignored efforts to resolve this, and it's not only this in Clave nagorno-karabakh that is. Occupied according to Baku by on menial separatists but also a large swathe of by Jan is under Armenian occupation since fighting the nineteen ninety s and there's well over a million. Refugees from that Conflict Bucco has been saying that there has been no attempts really to end this situation and the suggesting that the conflict was pretty much inevitable and I think that this fighting particularly given the fact that other by John Reid does appear to be on the offensive is a frustration that basically the international community hadn't resolve festering problem.
"Offers an intense perspective on the issues and feelings most prescient in the poet's mind to that end Ellie Ellie Sada's latest collection towards the end challenges a range of concerns troubling our contemporary world today. So Ellie welcome back to three. Ci Thank you. Thanks for having me Nev- it. The title here. Seems a little ominous towards the end leading to the end of the world as we know it but the world as we know it I you know I think as I was. Finalizing the book Earlier in the year. And I'm thinking well. This is a bit of a melodramatic title. And then I turn on the news now. Actually I just step out at you know to the back yard and I can't breathe because of the ember storm you know. This is interesting learning new language. Courtesy of the Times. We live in so there. Is You know parts of Australia. Burning soon have another of the horse. Men of of the apocalypse disease being unleashed in Wuhan China. At exact same time we had you know trump trying desperately to start the Third World War by by killing that Iranian General I thought well the four horsemen are here so my title was in to a to an in some ways necessarily see the physical demise here. It's it's more for the values and concerns that we hold dear if I may I'll just read the first poem and we can discuss it in a little more detail. It's called the singer. This is how I croon my son singing Humpty dumpty a melody. He screams out in the absence of my song. I wasn't nearly as loud toddler. My voice vanished from the void of my father's car father's es sorry. I remember him having vaguely while driving wrapped up in his own world in mind. My son's medley moves onto Jack and Jill recalling the tune. I whistled yesterday. Did it ever exist? Did I ever have a voice? Even as an infant to seek to mit a whimper. Our member dad crying out the lyrics of an old Persian. Dirge wobbling from the speaker's not long after moving to Australia homesickness. Haunting his larynx like ghost howling in a haunted house. So much for parenting the loss of the music I never could muster. I'm here for my son's nursery rhymes to enact the presence unsung words now. My interpretation and this is the thing about poetry. It's open to all sorts of possibilities. The music the music of the child the music of the father and the music of your father and your music seems to get lost in there somewhere and your voice. Because there's your father recollecting purge at the music is a wider connect with these past life your son Humpty Dumpty Jack and Jill vs the medleys all Utah of the future. So but this is my interpretation. But I'm just wondering if that coincides with your intention but also then the question Your Voice. Your music Great I just want to say that you read it very well and I think I would like you to do all my readings from here on if that's okay look into. I guess I wouldn't call it an ironing. It's too weak word but I guess the contradiction is that it's actually written in my voice. The whole poem is actually in my voice. It's a little bit like Plato in the Republic. Saying all this nasty things about art but the Republicans written as a play with characters. So you know there's that sort of again i. I guess this is paradox. I guess is the word so so here is a Paul supporters. You know saying I don't have a voice but it's actually nothing but the poet's voice I think that that's sort of the lost there and it's something that identify in the rest of the collection is not so much for voice of personal you know emotional autobiographical identity. But one of something deeper something more more meaningful which are identified to be the voice of universal human subjectivity. Now that's one of the oldest things that poets tried to do scene at a time of the great epic poets. They want. I wanted to speak on behalf of humanity. Now this is something. A modern poetry mob has certainly rejected strongly beginning with romanticism. Which says look you know. It's just you the lyric I expressing your feelings. All the way to sort of like postmodernism and which says the lyric is bad but any mention of we is also not okay. Only he only express the immediacy of language. And that's all you ever do and I kind of feel like well. I don't I mean I I mean that's a tall these traditions but the quest that I guess I felt as I was putting the poems in this book together on a road some additional poems and arranged upon where particular wide at Kinda tells of sort of a story and is not so much about finding my personal voice. You know how do I how do I express myself? But it's about well. What is the voice? That's is needed for our times. And I think that's the kind of the big universal question which is perhaps even a political question. Wouldn't you raise some very mighty topics vertical philosophical social There's one called saga the more obscure and undesirable the more palatable. Ice Scowl still bothers me. And she's been dead for at least a decade. Her husband comically defendant. A downtrodden man wants a Communist. How much more fascinating radical with? My grandparents emigres escaping style and coming to Iran to found a trotskyite cell instead of Banal Matriarch and dull ethics patriarch immersed in gossip and religion. As a child. I hated any a few things more than being left alone with him. He once believed in the dictatorship of the proletariat when he died. I couldn't some in a single tear from my added on to his grandson. He'd being so simple meaningless as for Anna perhaps not really possible that she migrated as a teenage girl from Baku to Iran for more exceptional reason than giving birth to a son. Who'd made a woman who didn't give birth to me? Jeans are poor substitute for the fable of revolutions that universal family. Thank you but this notion of needing a viable needing a sag that's momentous and yet the irony or the opposite is the sort of mundane Mundane missive life Yeah totally I mean. I think you know this is my third book of poems. I kind of exhausted. That's sort of like Again reflection on the personal and familial and the mundane I know. That's what a lot of poets do and they do. Well you know since I mean who's to say that William Williams was wrong to talk about her red wheelbarrow on K. Good not yourself that and I've done that but I kind of feel like especially the Times though was writing this collection of putting it together and I kind of begins around the time that I live into by and this is two thousand and eight and I see the global financial crisis at that really impacts me and I feel like perhaps there is a tradition of poetry that is much more easily impacted by what's happening in the world by the economic social and political. Then there are other traditions. You know the the great sort of I mean this is this is again. It is also paradoxical thing we think about romanticism. We think well. It's the poetry of you know some some English Dandy wandering around and looking at daffodils. Okay it's that but it is also the poetry of the same Dandy as a young person going to be a part of the French Revolution. So so you know that sort of again. I feel like there is a a traditional poetry. That is more public. That is more We can talk about its political. Buddy and what what sense of the word is as as people listening to this and listening to your excellent readings of my poems that. I'm not a preachy person. Nevertheless these are poems that express a desire for universality of the human experience. I mean you've got some lovely lines at times. I mean the economy's manifest destiny and that juxtapose -sition manifest destiny was part of the American agenda expansion prearranged by God over an indefinite area and yet now applying that to the economy as that he's now want is determining allies those sorts of images and juxtapose that you've created. I forget which one that was in their alphabet city Alphabet yeah so that. That's sort of those the images that you're able to provide to make us think more profoundly more deeply. Yeah thanks I I mean I mean you know it's Yeah it's a kind of again referenced. Historical things look as you said manifest destiny but that that particular Isabelle a cafe. They used to being in North called alphabet city. And and and you know I mean I. I was away from Australia for some time. Then I came back and didn't move back to Northcote. Couldn't afford it but but eventually when I went back and also well I go to this cafe where I used to hang out and it's just not there anymore and and I will on why you know what what is happening here. Look really and I thought well. It's there is to concreteness of the city. Being being pulverized due to the forces of capital and nobody I mean. It's it's an absurd thing to say what I don't want this old. You know cafe to be knocked down and replaced by auto residential flats built with you know to to enhance the value of capital for investors. Who Am I to say no to that? But I mean that's a very symbolic and visible way in which our lives are being impacted by this extraordinary juggernaut of capital to use a Marxist term the jagged of capital in many ways destroys the spirit of a place. I mean one of the things I've noticed in my son is that when I first moved in the dwellings were sort of seventies style and such like and now they being pulled down and two story brick mausoleums going from fence. Lan Events Line What is the old quarter Acre block and the veggie patch in the back? But it's it's a Y Y of how life is represented we see as leading allies and it's being destroyed in many
How Coronavirus is affecting MWC 2020
"GSA UPDATE ON CORONA virus. That is the subject line of an email that was sent out to registered attendees for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which is happening in just a few weeks. Hello everybody and welcome to the pocket now. Weekly podcast hosted by yours truly judge of Gara. What's going on everybody all right? So we're GONNA get a little bit more abundant this particular episode because yes we have to talk about the corona virus which has literally affected so many portions of the world and various various different sectors including tech. Now I'm sure that most of you are aware of the different stories that have come out of Baku Rona virus in general but there were some very interesting stories stories that happened within the last week or so in regards to the different people who are going to be exhibiting at Mobile Congress. Obviously you're listening to the pocket. Weekly podcast so you are probably aware of what NWC is it is literally one of the most important shows throughout every single year where mobile technology is given the centerstage pretty much every company that has a hand in the creation of smartphones tablets wearables infrastructure five G. tend to go to Mobile World Congress and many of their big announcements happened in Barcelona. People like myself in high Rivera and many of the people that you know in the tech world go to the show every every single year and it is generally a very good time. Barcelona is a wonderful city With a lot of character and actually mobile world congress as far as the venue is concerned. The fear of our CELONA is one of the coolest venues when it comes to these shows that we go to every year but this year. It's going to be incredibly difference because with the News Corona virus spreading in China and in certain parts around the world. A lot of people have had to make the executive decisions to either attend or opt out of of 'em. WC without naming names. I know a few people who actually opted out of going. And it's going to be a bummer. Not Seeing them in Barcelona as it is basically a tradition for all all of us tech friends to get together at this show and I know a couple of other publications that have actually been giving their people some early notice that if they don't want to go to Barcelona they can actually say so. And of course this all started when the corona virus first sprouted in the WHO Bay province of China particularly the epicenter. Being a place is called Wuhan that is part of mainland China but because of the level of travel that we have in today's society and today's High-tech Society. Let's say there are people both traveling from so many places around the world that not only would people from that province moved to many other places via air travel and whatnot. They're also many visitors. Who might my end up going to? Who Bay province and they are also part of this huge quarantine or huge tracking of people who might be affected by this corona virus us? And as you're going to hear later from the email that I mentioned at the beginning of this episode Whether or not you have actually stepped foot near or in Wuhan Matters. But let's just talk for a little bit about the impact that the GM A has on the mobile industry. Mobile Congress is like I said one of the biggest shows of of the year it is one of what we call the Big Three Ceus. 'EM WC and EPA in Berlin. You're all aware of CAS which just happened about a month ago. And then Eva In Berlin happens usually every September near the end of the year when some final announcements are happening but at the beginning of the year basically in the first quarter. This is when you set the precedent precedent for the rest of the calendar year at 'EM WC by announcing some really big devices in Barcelona back in the day Samsung used to use. WC The as the jump off point for their galaxy S. line they used to go to 'em WC with the new devices but overtime Samsung decided to hold their own shows. Handy events Of course now we call those unpacked. And those are the shows that Samsung uses in order to announce the new devices but pretty much every other company attends Hans Nwc along with thousands upon thousands of other exhibitors to show off their latest updates to just highlight some of the big names. You have everyone from Xiaomi. A two Vivo and honor to Qualcomm Lenovo Motorola sick imagine how everybody felt when. LG One of the most recognizable names and mobile tag decided to pull out and of M W C completely. There's a certain hall in the fear of the venue for Mobile World Congress where all of the phone manufacturers tend to sort of clump together. And it's there that you can walk from qualcomm and just maybe take a two minute stroll over to Samsung and from Samsung you can take a quick stroll over to lg but now that huge huge portion of that hall LG tends to take. It's just going to be empty. It remains to be seen. What would happen with these particular companies booths and spaces basis now that they're not actually going to be there? But of course there are varying degrees to which companies are actually taking themselves out of the show Z.. T. E. announced that they wouldn't be at the show show but what that actually meant was they. Were not going to do a press conference but they would still have a booth and have representation on the show. Floor Ericson would then follow suit as the next company to to leave Mobile World Congress over concerns of the corona virus. Ericsson a name that you might remember from these Sony Ericsson days of those particular. Let's say dump phones as it was before the smartphone. smartphone era is still a major player in telecommunications and probably the biggest blow to GSI may so far when it comes to 'em WC. Andy's exhibitors was invidia video announcing that they would no longer be attending the show. This one's a big one because according to the verge in video was going to host ten sessions and actually have a place called the a innovation center now I have seen Invidia at a number of different shows and they always talk about the power of their cards and processors especially in terms of ai and and videos AI is starting to pop in so many different places even beyond computing and mobile They actually started talking about autonomous driving and getting into the five G. Game but the market detail here is that nvidia was also a major sponsor of the conference in general and they have partnered with the conference to have a bunch of different sessions every single year. But it's probably the biggest headline mainly because video was one of the major sponsors of 'em. WC Twenty twenty on top of everything that they were supposed to be hosting the fact that they okay and three other companies so far at the recording of this episode have pulled out of mobile world. Congress means that all of the topics they have been part of are no longer going to be in the discussion. There's going to be less. Ai There because of invidia less mobile devices because of LG Z..

but if you could in a minute to the younger people who are listing what is what is the problem that needs to be self we can't solve it but what is the problem that needs to be solved well the problem is linked with territorial claims that Armenia have towards as of a John and the occupation of the Azerbaijan's one fifth of the Azerbaijan status race including not gonna cut up often surrounding seven regions by Armenian armed forces so currently these those risks are on the military occupation of Armenia and hundreds of thousands of ethnic Azerbaijanis historically living in these areas have

a security council resolutions of nineteen ninety three four resolutions demanding to stop the occupation of the Azerbaijan it'd trees to free the salons and calling back the IDPs and refugees to go back to their homelands unfortunate the negotiations which are on the way already more than twenty years between Armenia and Azerbaijan with the mediation of the free biggest countries United States Russia and France are continuing but without any tangible results the recent meeting between the ministers of foreign affairs of Azerbaijan and Armenia took place at end of January twenty ninth and thirtieth of January in Geneva the discussions continued by the way that you never discussed discussions were the most intensive probably discussions that we had latest tia's and there the two parties discussed how to implement the agreement reached during the last two years specially with the humanitarian projects in order to prepare both as a be Johnny and Armenian populations to peace and we hope that to Armenia in lost will will withdrew their armed forces from the occupied lands of Azerbaijan and the two communities as a janitor minha communities will leave a gain in peace and prosperity in Nagorno Karabakh region of Azerbaijan because we all understand that it if we want and sustainable peace sustainable progress in the region we have to make concrete steps for the settlement of the conflict a positive story I'm here at in Baku and I observed at my hotel a ministerial meeting yes and you tell me and I saw your foreign minister happily yes and a cheerfully leading a happy conversation of Turkic peoples that have a look yes that's right we've got a few minutes here what is that looks like what is not sure yesterday we had extra ordinary meeting of the

speaking countries including Azerbaijan Tookie because I could stand could cause is that an inspector said as member states and lost you hungry joined as an observer states because they believe that

of cooperation with international organizations or granting the other states observer or the partner state was also the implementation of the decisions made lost some meat in Baku last October in vocal we we see the rays of the influence of the Turkish consulate in international level and we are happy that we are chairing disorganization throughout this year is it prospering do our people please that the Turkic peoples after all these centuries are working together in date yeah date you can understand each other catch you you're different dialects of course with the different dialects but they are old torching speaking at country so the main point here is a gate to bring together these Turkic speaking and Turkish at at countries together now there's one elephant here that's Turkey it's a giant accommodates a giant it's a giant geo political sovereign state is it eager to participate with these much smaller countries well what is important here is that B. two B. quarter beets malt the for the foundation of the organizes chin is is to have an equal opportunity patient as an a sovereign state in the union in an organization called Turkic speaking countries organization so I don't think that the size of the country really matters and is organizing should the first thing is to have an boot it quill partnership among all participating states it occurs to me because I think any any uniform body like this has opportunities to speak out about injustice and also to recommend prosperity to support people it occurs to me that what these countries also share in college common is that your surprisingly secularized given your Moslem foundation absolutely right and and that means that your launched into solving the problems of some of the countries that have been secularized or suffering is that a fair generalization for less that that's very important a point that you have rights to secularism that we have in our countries and of course from the other side there are some

The Legend of Pokou
"Are stories today highlights leader whose life was surrounded by legend magic. She overcame significant. Hardship stood up to an army and eventually established a new homeland. Let's let's talk about Queen. Pokou Poku was born around seventeen hundred likely in what's now Ghana to a noble family of the Ashanti People. They were a centuries old African tribe with roots dating back as far as the year thirteen hundred poku was the niece of. Oh say two known as has the greatest Ashanti King because the Ashanti monarchy was matrilineal Poku was included in the line of succession during his rule. Oh say to united in many smaller kingdoms into the larger Ashanti Empire when in seventeen eighteen he was ambushed and killed Howard passed onto poku brother their day. Calm during day Khan's rule who selected a husband an attempt to produce an heir. It didn't get pregnant. Who was quite brave? Leave one day when day Khan and the army were away from the Ashanti. Capital enemy troops ambushed the town and killed all the royal princesses except Recoup Kuku arranged for others to escape but decided to stay behind and defend the town however she cut the enemy. Warriors took her hostage. d-conn soon returned from war furious to discover the besieged capital. He appointed a warrior named Tano to lead Loku's rescue party. They successfully successfully defeated the enemy group and got poku back Tano and Poku then got married. The new couple had a baby boy together. The heir to the Ashanti anti thrown Dakin fell ill when Poku son was still only a baby so we attempted to appoint an older air but day. Cons choice was murdered by his rival. Who who hoped to seize the throne himself after killing the chosen heir? The rival tried to gain favor with Poku to secure his place on the throne but she refused to endorse him. He was determined to seize power regardless so poku left the shontae capital altogether to establish her own kingdom. She invited anyone anyone in the Ashanti Empire to come with her and many of the smaller kingdoms previously united by her uncle Osa to to decided to follow her to a new land. The story of Baku's peril filled adventure to a new land has been passed down in legend. For centuries in many ways echoes the story of Moses and the Hebrews escaped from Egypt and Pokou and her followers fled the capital city with the soldiers of the guy who wanted to be king on their trail. They had to navigate a treacherous jungle filled with snakes panthers and giant elephants many of them also fought illness through the hazardous journey coup and the fleeing subjects reached an impasse. Thank thank Komo River which was to deep and violent across. According to legend the group decided they had to make a sacrifice to the river gods in order to make the crossing crossing possible Poku that she would have to sacrifice something hugely important to her in order to save for people in anguish. She sacrificed her son to the river. Ever different versions of the legend claim. A variety of magical means helped Pokou and her people cross the river including an enormous tree bridge and the help of crocodiles and hippos regardless the refugees cross. The river narrowly escaping pursuit. When Poku Oku safe she cried Bali which means the child is dead because of this new group of settlers came to be called the bow? The the exodus from the Ashanti capital occurred sometime between seventeen thirty and seventeen fifty. Migration took the ballot into what's now Cote d'Ivoire their err poku conquered territory established a new homeland for her people. She was known as a leader and an expert mediator not long after establishing doing this new settlement around seventeen sixty folk who died per legacy lived on and in the years following her death.

Euro 2020 draw: England in group with Croatia while Wales meet Italy
"Thank you very much God. Meanwhile in Romania the JOE is made for the Euro Two thousand nine hundred finals next summer here it is on its glory in group. Eight Italy Wales and Switzerland or Jones again in Group B Denmark Finland Belgium and Russia in Group C. It's the Dutch Ukraine Austria and then one of the four teams will qualify via the playoffs in Group Day England Croatia and the Czech Republic will also be joined by a team entering via the playoffs in group e Spain Sweden Poland then another playoff win a group F. That's the big one is Jimmy France Portugal and and then another playoff win at for a lot more on the jaw gap. It might take some people a while to fully wrap their heads around euro. Twenty twenty of course This tournament unlike any other at the anniversary tournament. It's not going to be hosted at one place. It's spread all over Europe from From Glasgow and London in the West all the way to Baku Ho. That's all the way to the to the east so these groups that were drawn. There's different dynamics. The top seeds get a whole bunch of games at home which of course is also is also going to impact things. I think tremendously so if you're the likes of of Spain if you're the likes of Italy Holland and of course England Then it'd be pretty happy. Tell you. WHO's not going to be happy? Germany Portugal and France the last two World Cup winners with of of course the defending euro champions Portugal sandwiched in between. They're all in the same group we don't know who the fourth one is. Because that's another one of the vagaries of of this draw that there's still issues to be settled via the playoffs but it presents a really interesting dynamic. Now remember a this is a two thousand fourteen year old like the last one which means that some third-placed teams will advance Portugal. Of course advances the third place team last time around they. He did it without winning a game and of course they went on to be crowned European champion so doesn't necessarily mean one of these big three Portugal. Germany and France are going out early But it does mean that you have to be careful whoever whoever that that fourth-placed or that the fourth seed in that group is going to be you know that teams are GonNa go all out against them because you simply cannot even contemplate dropping points if you want to advance as third seed so all to play for and it starts this summer and tell you what some people don't like all the traveling around but it's going to be different. It's going to be good

I've also been into Chris, and I have talked about these capitals. And when you travel to here to test, Ken, do you see them following the same trajectory that we see in Baku? I mean, if I were to say, I would guess that Bach who's about ten years ahead of Tashkent. I get this by cutting the building cranes. And also the, the, the new housing this going up in Baku. It hasn't arrived here yet, but it's on the same does that is that how it feels to you living in Baku that when you come here, you see in ten years this'll be this'll be where we are now. Well, I it's my first time. In I arrived yesterday, and I was very, very impressed with the vibrancy and the dynamism that I felt in the town, we I met a lot of fellows from Becca STAN. So in the personal level, I had a lot of respect and I'd narration, but to see it on the streets to see it with with everyone that I interact with what was very impressive, even from the moment, Ugandan airport now is becka. Stan also has a silver in fund, and I'm very proud to see I think they have about twenty billion dollars of assets under management. And it's fa- me, it is the sign of long-term responsible. Vision for the country. So I'm very happy to see that now obviously they see a lot of reforms and we see the, the immense interest that STAN now arises in people, and as by Johnny citizen. I'm very happy for my Baker, France. But I'm also thinking that, that means that we need to work harder now because we have this, this competitor, now in the region who is doing all the things right. Which means we need to do them, even better to, to keep up with the level of interest and to keep up the level of investment. So we need to speed up with our reforms. We need to deepen them. We need to make the most historic more impactful, only one thing that I hope, and that isn't a completely personal level that I hope that the route that was back STAN will not necessarily copy it as in. I, I noticed that the town is incredibly green. So I know. That I was actually I heard that, that after the earthquake in nineteen sixty six they made a decision not to build highrise buildings.

And Chris being the grandson of president Nixon was often present for the conversations that president Nixon had with his old, foes, the photos, and the communists world that would be in Russia. This is early Yeltsin the nine hundred ninety s and that would have been in Beijing as well the transformation of the Chinese economy where he's just returned from China. We're joined by professor Stephen f Cohen because Steve's new book war with Russia is about the tragedy of the collapse or crumbling of the detente and success and transformation of the of Russia. Into a Konami that is integrated with the west. This tragedy has happened over these last four or five years and Steve's book is about that tragedy. Week-to-week Stephen I talked and he would write it up afterwards from Ukraine to Syria to the Baltic states. And Steve I come with you with the question tonight that occurred to me as we were corresponding earlier today that once upon a time, we we didn't exactly just, but we speculated that there was a war party in the Kremlin and a war party in Washington. And that these war parties were eyeing each other and contributing to the esscalation when we moved to Syria when we moved to NATO, but now from your remarks earlier about the Muller report being the beginning of the democrat Democratic Party pressing the Russia gate story, despite the lack of facts has the Democratic Party become the war party. Is this a party that's going to prosper in the new Cold War the way once upon a time, the Republican party prospered in the first Cold War, Steve? Well, a lot of. Leaders of the Democratic Party. Evidently, thanks. So they think that Russia gate is winning ticket and they're doubling down. I guess you heard the news that Nancy Pelosi the leader of the Democrats in the house has invited the head of NATO to address congress. This is nothing short of astonishing in Moscow regarded as a provocation. First of all the head of NATO an appointee clerk is colorless not a political entity and himself, and yet when be thank of foreign leaders who have addressed congress. We think of Winston Churchill. So we wonder what the heck Pelosi is thinking, and we know what she's thinking Trump has said and rightly I think maybe not eloquently that we need to rethink what is NATO's mission. The Democrats think that this is an attack on NATO and therefore to symbolize their opposition Trump. They're inviting this guy to address congress if this happens, and apparently it will. It will be taken as a very bad sign even a provocation in Moscow. But this simple reason, but NATO's only Michigan since the end of the Soviet Union has been to creep to Russia's borders from the from the Baltic region down to Georgia. And as we talk as you know, we've discussed this on your broadcast. There is an unprecedented NATO military buildup on Russia's borders in the north Baltic in the Baltic region, which Russia regarded as a as a major provocation so to bring the head of NATO to address congress. Just despite Trump shows the recklessness of Democratic Party leadership in regard to our national security. So I think this is not over. I think it's going to get worse. Very bad for our national security. All of a sudden now, though, the American left is condemning the Russians is bad guys is not an authentic evolution of thought. Or is this simply crass ranked opportunistic politics. You know, Monica. There was a French prime minister, you malay- think many many years ago, even before my time who when asked because he was the leader of the French left if you identified with Moscow, which was then the Soviet. Laughed. He said Moscow is not the left. It's the east. I think that's pretty smart. The American left's part of the last long history unwise history with Moscow in Soviet times mistook the east for the left. So what the left bought and dad and the word leftist geography to me. In the past. However, you're right. There's a kind of anomaly here in that. There was a time. When the Democrats wanted to present itself the party as the party of peace. I think we've got a situation now, although American Paul, you would know better you, John and Chris where Trump? Go to the country in twenty twenty if he's got decent economic numbers and a working agreement. He could go to the country as the president of peace and prosperity. And I think the Democrats were have no answer to that. And, you know, Russia's not the Russia gate has reintroduced Russia as a kind of very bad thing. But not to the degree that it was when it was communist, it just doesn't sell that Russia's a capitalist country. Now, some kind. Chris. I just don't see how the Democrats find this to be a winning issue. Again. I think Americans are gonna wanna talk about the economy, and I just don't think that when the Democrats are screaming about Russia. Russia Russia, and there's nothing there. In fact, the president has been tougher on Russia and Ukraine than his predecessor. How does that translate to political? I just don't see it. We've got about a minute. Well, there's this expression going the rounds, which you probably heard it called, I think Trump derangement syndrome. Have you heard that expression? Every day every day. I guess it means that the mere fact that Pelosi thinks it's a good idea to have the head of NATO address. Congress shows you national security thinking on the part of congress just despite trunk. It's trump. It's the only reason for it. Steve I want to give an opportunity to speak well of your Senator from Kentucky rand Paul because he is the exception to the rule about the enmity in Washington towards Russia. So I was in Washington in search of members of congress who shared my view on the need for a new detente with Russia, and I'm sure there are at least six or seven, but I met two very disparate lines. Actually, I knew them before their politics may not be to your collective collectively liking. But on this issue. They're both very good one. Of course is rand Paul. He is the statesman of the Senate in my judgment regarding foreign policy, and the other is a woman not very well. Well known, but who is declared herself to be a candidate for the democratic presidential nomination. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii. Maybe that's something to build on.

How was it that the Soviet people's these hundreds of different ethnic identities? All of a sudden realized that the Soviet state was a falsehood that they've been living under the boop of pretenders for decades. A good place to start for that. Answer is Baku the capital of Azerbaijan. I go to an event that is remembered unhappily as black January or black Saturday. It is Baku as John, and you know, I've traveled there, and we'll again this year Baku is on the Caspian Sea is the capital of Azerbaijan, a very tolerant Republic democracy that is critical to the success of the Caspian Sea basin all of the nations of the Caspian Sea that is neighbors with Iran with Russia with Armenia with Kazakhstan with Turkistan, but once upon a time it was under the Soviet boot until January nineteenth and twentieth. Nineteen ninety and to help me tell this story because fresh today is the embassador to the United States from Azerbaijan, my friend, a Suleymanov. Mr. ambassador, a very good evening to you people died when make our garbage I've told the defense minister Dmitry has off to open fire to stop an uprising in Azerbaijan. The uprising was spontaneous. Although it was after years of abuse. Where were you when you heard that the Soviet military the interior police had opened fire on your compatriots between the nineteen thousand nine hundred ninety s when did you first hear good evening to you? Agreement. Jones good to hear your voice back on do. They do. I hope everything's going. Well, I. Absolutely. Correct. I think it was nail in the coffin of the Soviet Union was put in Baku when the Soviet military decided to open an indiscriminate fire and an attack on. I was a student at a time. I was in Moscow. And I have to tell you that before January twenty very often people will discuss a configuration is some form of continuation over the Soviet Union in one way or another. I think January twenty the virus pitcher under orders of Mikhail Gorbachev who is very popular but quite despise back in the Soviet Union. And actually we did our show today. I think I. Boatswain they decided that I could not be any longer. So I think Minneapolis anybody. I know I talked to understood that the independence over is the only way for how did you? Hear your mom your mom was back in Baku. Did you hear from her? Yes. I got a phone calls from members of our family. We saw some videos and reporting, unfortunately, the TV build Cussing station in other Johnny was blown up. I notice of the Moscow. So what happened was that people have to smuggle out videos VHS, and I tell you those hit by journalists and by TV personnel by others to bring out this horrible Holyfield videos of people being over by tanks and everybody else and. I mean, that's that's the same horrific. But at the same time it sends a message of holidays. My people could be I don't know if you know two days after that. About despite the orders and despite the standing. Mid active military beat the tanks, helicopters overflights. By by the jets about a million people came out for the funeral and put his spontaneously earlier Mattis, which is up in Baku, no up on the hill. And and people who came out were led by our the of the Muslim community, but also by leaders of the Jewish Ashkenazi and Sephardic communities, and by the national deduct church leader because all of them came together United and that would put the basis for the new independent today where did are one hundred and forty seven civilians to were gunned down eight hundred people were injured five people were missing. Where does it take place? Baku is not that large of a city in in nineteen thousand nine hundred have I have I passed that site, Mr.. Yeah. Yes, you you actually have best at.

He just went in number of our doctors emergency doctors personnel, the shot. David, thanks to assist people deliver urgent medical care. They were shot in within inside the emergency vehicles. It was a very brutal attack. And I think it changed. But it's also changed the Soviet Union at the time. It was very obvious that while they tied to protect. The union at the time the US would they actually have done. They made sure that it would no longer exist. And. Like that on the smallest giving Gioja you before nineteen Eighty-nine related events in in the Baltics republics twenty the twentieth. And also there was in nineteen eighty six event in in in. Which good personally ordered use of force against civilians on every occasion. But the most brutal the most massive which involved not just police with actual actual new focus of the entire Soviet military machine. Was Michael did they teach the massacre to the children today to is it a lesson for the younger people? Yes. I think I think it's a big time of unification in Baku. You could see that.

This was the first occasion on which the Icelandic entry had not been performed entirely in my slander owing to the free language rule being reinstated on from that year on hoods on this was the only first verse Icelandic entry not to have version recorded an Icelandic by the original artist <hes> and <hes> basically it's such a fantastic song the performance of Egypt to backing dancers wearing trench coach a trench coaches and described by BBC commentator Sir the late Great Satori wagon as the to Egypt's in pregnant coats North Very Noyce as it now at the close of voicing it received Andrea and forty six points placing second field twenty three Aisin's Heiss contest placing to date which was equally by your Hannah in two thousand nine with with a sit true it got to number one in Iceland but it sadly in Kuala it didn't chart in any other countries <hes> off often the contest or even before the contest so that's a shame but in mind good hotel one an amazing ox landed gentry now Wigan Bruce Liu slightly further away from Israel over to Azerbaijan and the two thousand twelve Eurovision Song contest was held in the crystal hole in Baku purposely built for eurovision are still standing and <hes> apparently still have many large concerts taking place there in Baku in the crystal hole and <hes> one of these one of what are these songs of the grandfather and in the semi finals. was them not tip to do that great there.

How to access your pay before pay day? New apps making this easier for everyday workers...
"Me now. In our Bloomberg ninety nine, one studio here in Washington DC. Bloomberg news economics reporter. Show, Chandra who's got a story about this on the Bloomberg terminal show the. The blogger they're almost makes this sound like a payday loan that you get from your boss but it's. Not quite, that is. It no it's not that at all in fact this is one way around payday loans and you see this. In the gaining popularity that at such as the one from instant financial. And from daily pay those are becoming popular hourly workers as you said and yes you earn your money and then you have access to it which, has been. A problem especially for this segment of. The labor market and part of. It is because wages just. Haven't been rising fast Enough, according to analysts we spoke to so here's a case of technology really stepping in to help workers. Albeit in a limited way where the labor market has disappointed any right in your, story that part of the, objective here? Is, to help employers reduced churn. Among employees, it's very high and the restaurant and, fast food industries is is are these apps working are they reducing churn for the companies using them yes one assistant. Manager to Wendy's that we spoke with said it's. Really helping, deals charm and he seemed that right from the time he, joined which was late February, and now he's you know he said from, that time on the company started to roll the instant financial app They they've not only retain all the. Workers they had, they've. Actually added two more and about twenty four of, thirty workers already had this up so everybody there was, quite happy with. It and you know it's not just a good thing for employers, remember this is helping employees to be able to tide over that gap between paychecks and. That is what gets to why these apps may increase in use sorta gets. To the point of persistent issue that you alluded to earlier when, it comes to the? Plight of low income workers in this country I? Mean. They are still dealing with the struggle even on a, day when we had four, point one percent quarterly economic growth they still have to, make ends meet day. Exactly and you, know so, so one takeaway from today's numbers was that yes the economy's ring really fast did Very well in the second quarter but not everybody's benefiting from it in. Fact there was a recent recently released Federal Reserve survey and that had, shocking number in there it said too in five American. Adults lack enough savings to cover even a four hundred dollar emergency expense so you can. Just imagine how important it is for workers. To at least, the able to access through some of these. Financial apps the money that they have already earned by working hard and just to give you a sense of how these apps worked as one way you can get fifty percent of your what you've earned the prior day and it's for free so you just text on your phone and you can. Get the, money onto your debit card that's another one where you pay a Baku depending on whether, you want the money right, away the next day and you can get. All. Of the money, that. You've earned so they're these different models if you, will that are starting to. Come Up in the market and they're all targeting at not penalizing workers. Just to be able to get the money, that they have actually earned Show just in our last minute or, so here how do the apps make money on all this the apps make money by charging companies in the one case in instant financial but, they wouldn't disclose to. Us what they charge the employers. To be able to offer these apps to the to their, workers and another case which is daily pay the company that's offering this app daily pay is charging the workers themselves to use the app and they have a very interesting Way to attract more millennials millennials actually you can, text and emoji you can choose If you could pick. A house if you want to you know get some money towards your house red you can pick a money bag or if you. Just happy Texan emoji for a smiley and you get twenty bucks, with each emoji so what they're trying to do, here is get, more people involved whether it's younger workers or just regular. Hourly workers, make it simple get. The money that you have earned emojis to it I mean that's a slam dunk but in? Our our, last couple seconds here is this a risk for the payday loan industry I mean what did you. Say of, Bucker to, these these apps charge for for, workers to, access their money I mean that's a that's, that's peanuts compared to. The you know double digit percentages that payday lenders, charging, interest, not just payday lenders remember credit card expense Also add up if you can't pay bills at the end of the. Month so yes there is a risk provided these apps become widespread and by all accounts a my reporting. Showed that these are gaining rapidly, of course there still, mostly in, the healthcare sector in restaurants those kind. Of industries but there could be a day when this becomes a widespread phenomenon through the economy and then payday lenders better watch out. All right show Chandra thanks again for telling us more about this, really appreciate it that's Bloomberg news economics reporter show, Chandra now let's, get the latest world and national headlines with Bloomberg's Nancy. Lyons thanks,.
