"Today we had to Afghanistan to the remote rugged mountains of bamiyan province In 2011 these soaring peaks became the backdrop of something unlikely and uplifting in this struggling water and country because bamiyan is where Afghan skiing was born A lot of people skiing here Yeah Fuku skiing Arkansas I've done some internationals Really When the BBC's least a set visited bamiyan in 2011 she was thrilled to see Afghans having fun on the slopes These Afghan boys tagged along with us Taking to the slopes with whatever they can find at home Look at that a bit of wood A rubber boot a bit of metal The littlest is sliding down the slopes In his mother's shoes One of the first Afghans to embrace skiing was Alicia for hang He became one of Afghanistan's top skiers a winter Olympic hopeful He grew up in a small village nestled in the Cory Baba range It's kind of rural area So my father is the former and Maya 5 6 7 generation They were all forming in the village You know like taking the ships on the mountain Before skiing started in bamiyan in the winters people tended to avoid the mountains because of the danger of avalanches and wolves So elisha was amazed when on a cold sunny day in February 2011 he first caught sight of a figure silhouetted against a snow hurtling down the slope towards him It was something not only for me but for the entire people of the village it was something magic they were doing on this snow He would soon discover that the magic he'd witnessed was called skiing and that a new travel agency supported by a development charity had started offering ski holidays to tourists seeking a unique adventure Bamiyan was relatively safe for foreigners back then and its mountains have perfect snow So it took a couple of days for me to get closer to this year and ask them finally but it is really interesting to learn this I was really excited to throw his skin An Italian ski guide employed by the agency agreed to give Alicia his first lesson It was in the most experience Even walking with those boots were not so easy But of course we didn't have a proper skin commute and it was in waterproof So all the glutes were hit and afterwards it got freezing cold You just feel so strange with your legs and especially when the skies go under this snow and you struggle to take it back I already got the signal that it's going to be at a sport So after that first day you've fallen over your wet you're freezing cold Your boots don't fit You thought I'll try this again It's slowly slowly you know like it got better As soon as you know like I could go a little bit faster make a tour then it felt like this is something nice Aesha was soon hired as Afghanistan's first professional ski guide There wasn't a ski lift so his first job was to lug heavier equipment up the slopes I was quite good on going up Helen carrying a lot of weight Yeah I guess being a shepherd going up the mountain all the time it makes you very fit Yeah The job was fun and he loved meeting skiers from all over the world But some of his neighbors in the village were suspicious of westerners Because of the lack of information People consider the foreigner role at the infidel As infidels Yeah they were talking to my father that your son started working with the infidel So he will be converted to another relation And he is working with dirty people A couple of them actually they didn't let me go is scheme because they say you're destroying this node There's no will get mailed soon We will not have enough water In the future because you destroy all these snow with the infidels They are dirty they will make these nodes in the snow will be gone We will not have any water Sometimes they felt G lists with me that I'm working with further making money but most of the time it was just because of this relationship this year Alicia didn't give up He was hooked on his sport He wasn't alone More and more local young people and kids wanted to try skiing A small ski school was set up with international support and Alicia became an instructor Things really took off with the start of the Afghan ski challenge An annual race with skiers from all over the world competing against homegrown talent The.

"To legally protect hyman and potentially pursued. Local landmark designations status now. So why chicago about it doing this. I have no idea. I mean there was there was a there was an instant. La instance last year where thankfully rather than demolish a right house. They actually put it on the back of a truck and shifted it to another part of the city which i mean it does take away. I guess the historic significance of the home in the fact that it's no longer in the in the in the sort of the context that it was meant to be you know that it was designed for granted. These home was a freestanding cottage. That i think right actually worked from but at least they kept the form of it and i guess the concern here is that you could lose it completely because there is actually another good news story from that. It's the highly clark mentioned in the end. Some in chicago. And a that has now been spearheaded by the writer or jennifer negga and she has managed to save it and turn it into what they're calling the artist's book house And it's going to be a place with with books and people right in music there and everything. But she really had to fight the council's get that. And i think that sounds like a beautiful example in terms of you also giving people access to these homes so people can understand and start to appreciate why they're important. I mean in terms of these frederick bagley house. The reasoning significant is not in a rights characteristic prairie style with a long horizontal and and cantilever roofs But rather it's sort of dutch colonial affair with with gable roofs Certainly completely different to what you would. Typically what is typically knowing. But but the reason i like it and the reason it's significant and the reason it should be preserved as you can start to see the development of his style so so there's a there's a library an octogonal larvae that shuts off the back of it. That he's has since used that he then used in other projects including his own home studio park another part of chicago land And seeing that narrative saying that is on narrative evolve is incredibly important and giving people access to it to see it in person to actually understand. It isn't using incredible absolutely nick. Many thank you for coming in and getting an early start on the day. This is the cleverest on monocle. Twenty four now twenty years ago. The taliban deliberately destroyed the sixth century. Buddhas of bamiyan world heritage site and now the the militant group is in charge of the country. There are concerns that similar acts of cultural violence will occur. Unesco has issued a statement calling for the preservation of afghanistan's cultural heritage in its diversity will join me on. The line is rodney harrison professor of heritage studies at university. College london rodney. Thanks for joining us. What are the main cultural heritage sites in afghanistan. Morning georgina yet. So there are currently two World heritage sites which listed in afghanistan and four additional thoughts on. What's called the tentative list. Which is a list of places which state parties to the world heritage convention expressing interest in ultimately having assessed for world heritage site listing and these are the six sites which unesco has expressed particular concerns about the two listed sites the archeological remains of the bamiyan valley which was listed after the destruction of the two buddhis- by the taliban In two thousand three and the sixteenth century minaret jam and there are another full sites on the tentative list which a to ancient cities at hayrettin. Bob a national park on amir national park. Which is a protected natural area containing lakes and travertine deposits and the garden of baba. Which is the resting place of the first mogul emperor and the other sites which unesco have identified as as being particularly you potentially vulnerable the national afghan museum which has seen a really significant program of refurbishment and renovation and the repatriation has stolen and looted objects from throughout the region as well as phen abroad over the past decade and. So what exactly has unesco said. What are they calling for. Well the calling for the preservation of Old of afghans cultural heritage all of its diversity. And obviously here. They're harking back to the destruction of the bamiyan buddhas in the very sort of politically motivated Kind of strong media campaign which the taliban engaged in in the months leading up to the destruction of the buddhas in two thousand and one which obviously then To some extent preempted and then prefigured the september eleven attacks and helped to justify the us late invasion of afghanistan as well as various cultural interventions which followed the invasion and the establishment of the new government But i think it's worth thinking about. What the real risks are. Because i think this sort of politics at that moment were quite different to the politics of this moments. And i think it's. It's quite helpful to look in more detail at the events of the Destruction the the events leading up to the destruction of the buddhas in the first place because actually the taliban were engaging with quite positive about the restoration of the buddhas. There had been some threats that were made by local taliban leaders to destroy the buddha's early nineteen ninety eight and the supreme leader of our own said in fact that they went to be destroyed an issue to decrease supporting the restoration and it was only really much later once the planning for the restoration began that this decision seems to be reversed And it seems to have been at least partially due to the influence of al qaeda possibly even osama bin laden himself but also what they said was disbelief about the huge sums of money that could be allocated by the international community for the restoration statues whilst children were starving in the streets and there was significant needs for reconstruction other areas of the country. So i think if if one is to learn any lessons from the past there were two lessons to be learned. One one is that Although there are a series of international conventions which make the intentional destruction of heritage sites illegal the most important being this the nine hundred fifty four hague convention These are only applicable to recognize governments and recognized governments that have signed up to these various international conventions so the international community needs to become a much more diplomatic with with the way in which it's engaging with the taliban engaging with these newly emergent governments very much indeed that was rodney harrison there..

"We're at a crossroads on our real story panel is going to help us to look in all directions. Let's meet them. Omar Samad is a former Afghan ambassador to France and Canada, and he's currently a visiting senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. Welcome to the real story of us about the conflict in Afghanistan has played out for the past 20 years. But in your experience what describes the challenge facing the country? Where we told her 20 years since the Americans came in, but 42 years really, since the tobacco's started in Afghanistan, 1978 so most of my lifetime I remember when I was 17 and My closest friend in high school was taken away by the communist regime and never heard of again. And that was the moment when I decided to get engaged and remain engaged, and I did. And I also remember prior to 9 11. When I used to go around Washington as an activist, young activist and in war people about the dangers posed in Afghanistan off having a clear policy leading to some settlement or solution before their terrorist attacks, And then nobody was listening. We really need to put an end to this war, but do it responsibly and in a way that works for all sides, But There is no several bullet to say that. So what you're describing is a long story, one that began with the Russians some 40 years ago and continues with the United States on NATO allies today. Let's meet our next Panelist Habiba Sarabi. She's a negotiator from the Afghan Republic team. She's joining us from dough. Hardware talks are taking place of the Taliban over the framework of future negotiations. She's also a former governor of Bamiyan province on a former minister of women's affairs. Welcome to the real story. Habiba Sarabi for you. Is there a story or anecdote that you could describe That encapsulates that the challenges that Afghanistan still faces. Thank you very much, miss Sure. The challenge Afghanistan. Always pacing is the geographical location of Afghanistan that this located between there's so many superpower. It's the war is not enter war in Afghanistan. It is a kind of proxy war. That's why we are always suffering from war in Afghanistan. So the challenge that as a negotiator I'm facing here now is the the upper hand off Taliban that the U. S Taliban agreement that and do her They give a kind off prestige tow the Taliban that they are not easily coming to the negotiation table to talk about the problem in Afghanistan. They think that they are the victory and they will remain the victory and they are the one defeated the superpower and Afghanistan. That's why they are not. Coming to the negotiation table, and that's a no. So he will unpick Chur. In course, this program that's Peter. Next. Panelist Christopher Collender is a former senior policy advisor in Afghanistan to the U. S. Army General Stanley McChrystal, and he was the first American to both fight the Taliban as a commander in combat on also to engage in high level negotiations with them. He's also the author of the upcoming book Zero Sum Victory. What We're Getting Wrong about War. Risk a lender. Welcome to the real story for you. Is that something that happened a story an anecdote that encapsulates the challenges that Afghanistan faces. Thank you so much for having me brittle. I think the one that best characterizes the American experience, at least in my mind for Afghanistan is when I was a commander there we had deployed to one of the Most deadly places in the country at the time, and we're fighting what was essentially a local insurrection of we're about 95% of the people were fighting us. And after about nine months of a 15 month deployment, we finally were able to start putting a lot of the pieces together. And it turns out that the insurgent leader Who was fighting in this release. The main one L call him Ahmed shot. It's not his real name, but I'll call you Mama to. He was an insurgent leader against the Soviets in the 19 eighties. And when U. S forces first came to the area, some people who had a blood feud with Ahmad Shah Began reporting him is al Qaida, which he was not, and government officials joined in this and then suddenly, US forces and Afghan militia began paying him a visit in the middle of the night, and I'm a shod had a choice to make whether to surrender or fight back. He decided to fight back and 95% of the population was with him. You know today, thanks to a lot of good work from our soldiers and Afghan civilians. He's now fighting on the side of the government. But for me, it shows just how difficult it is in Afghanistan for Americans do to manipulated intelligence, predatory corruption by the government and civilian casualties. Real insight there into the complexities of this war. Let's meet a final Panelist and if Alzheimer's is a retired U. S diplomat who served in Kabul when the Obama administration was formulating its Afghan strategy back in 2009. She then returns to the city is deputy chief of mission as the Trump Administration is formulating its strategy in 2017 to 18. And she's now at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Think tank. Any Pforzheim a welcome to the real story. What for? You would be a story or a necklace owed that really encapsulates the challenges for Afghanistan. Thank you so much for telling for having me. I think that I would put the two examples that you note from my background as one sort of singular anecdote, which is the desire for US policymakers. Band reality to our U. S domestic political circumstances. So over and again we have reassessed the war, the direction of it the troop levels the development levels. In a way not based on circumstances on the ground, but on whether there has just been an election or is going to be one in the United States and the opposite of what we should be doing, which is demonstrating publicly strategic patience. Or problems set that has been as it's been discussed. Going on for 40 years is very complicated and affect so many people, and instead we're looking for simple responses on a four or two year.

Marianne is a motivational speaker. And she runs a very successful pekan restaurant as well as running natural health programs. I'll begin by asking maryanne satele to bit about herself. I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes. It was just all like niggly stuff that was affecting our relationships and was affecting the way we functioned from day to day. And i have always been interested in the human body i prob- i might have become a doctor. But i'm i'm glad i didn't because it made me look for answers and other places so i was fascinated with the human body studied physiology anatomy and chemistry in the sciences and i was fascinated with the how the human body worked. So we're not. We started having these problems and we were being treated traditional medical way with anti anti-inflammatories and antihistamines for a head allergic dermatitis. On my hands and the kids with antibiotics just didn't make any sense because nobody actually got well. all it doesn't seem to do is suppress symptoms. And then they'd come back two weeks later. I saw the athol up. Gotta find answers. This was long. Before the era of google that really dates meet And just go and do a search on google. And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else.

You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states. The funny thing is it seems to be taking of now first published in the states in two thousand five fifteen years not getting traction. So it's like if it does take off and i happened to reach the new york times. Basically nobody can ever say was an overnight success at this pathetic years. So you're a woman before your time. Someone emission to really help people if i can get rid of my bipolar symptoms and be completely sane And and thinks straight and have a brain in and and bow bowels and bladder that works properly all the time and be living in that sweet spot of health than anybody can do it. Because i had terrible problems. Janet listening to all calls from weld without wine. Marianne take me about you just mentioned alcoholic parents. It that intrigued me wondering if that was one of the reasons why you want it to research to health unle- to healthier lifestyle was that of a trigger. I think it. I think it was. I think you know even mentioned to some one time that i want to try to get drunk when us fourteen and jank moms cara pheno one and didn't like the way i felt i felt out of control and i think that sense of not being in control of my immediate environment and i wouldn't say i'm a control freak but i needed to be common working properly and audley at the sense of order i think that comes from growing up in the chaos of alcoholic appearance at home and my mom was a party animal. She was functional alcoholics. She could party all night and go to work the next day in absolutely fine my father however party will not and he wouldn't work for six months and that was you know he'd worked for six months and then not work for six months to a year or two years so we grew up with that sort of chaotic and then my parents got divorced because my mother said she had four kids anita fifth one. My father married. Somebody was crazy as he was. You know do things like pour petrol over my stepmother and threatened sitter a lot this crazy stuff that chaos does makes you want to live an ordinary that the thing. That really got to me when i was a kid. My mom had this medical encyclopedia. And i would pour over at the age of four hundred. All these gory. Pictures of people as innocent large thyroid landed was like the size of pumpkin and the knicks and these open ruins and at sit there and cringes kind of not. Wanna look at them. But it's fasten. The human body fascinated me from a very early age. My mom was kind of forward thinking as much as she was a party animal. She told us we couldn't chew gum or drink. Physical because our brains would fry and and we went lottery comic books either. So i had the sense of trying to do the right thing I think it also grows up with you know you grow up with a parent. That's a bit narcissistic. i think. Alcoholism in a sense is a narcissistic habit. Because you just carrying about a million myself. And i'm trying to numb my pain. You know not thinking about the responsibilities of life you know growing up with it. I had the saints. That i wanted to please my mom and do the right thing so i was considered the goody. Two shoes in the family just always trying to do the right thing in an nfl had to take it back to pregnancy was a need to just have off in my life Feel like yeah. Things went as chaotic. As they've seen. We moved a lot as kids. You know doing a geographic alcoholic. Parents do that things. Don't work you just move somewhere else. Yeah i've i've come across two different reactions when people have Parents they are do what she did. And react against the kale. Some won't control an order in their life all they they tend to say well. You know sin family. I'm bound to be that as well and then kinda give up unsolved drinking as well so Is that been your experience as well. Do you think people tend to go. A different one of two was party. Animal ended in two brothers. That partied hard. I mean they crashed a few calls when they were aided. And that god they've grown up and grown out of it and They've so but very working my two brothers especially very sober and very hard working And and i just think. I think what you you learn the learned behavior sydney. I look at myself is it. I may not have been addicted to alcohol. But as very addicted to sugar so ahead addictive side to me that anita to the sugar made me feel good in that space. So i suppose in a sense. I was doing much what people do with alcohol when us feeling unhappy or was feeling sad or on feeling like a done something. Well i would reward myself or console myself with suga whether it was fragile candy or cake. So is scream. It didn't really matter how much as i said. Even propane sugar staying out of the sugar bowl. As i got older. I became health conscious. South for made fudgy using brown sugar. That was really good. But you're that that that needs that sense of of you don't you you know parents at properly as if you growing up in an alcoholic home so you learn. The navy is that that it's a k. To satisfy yourself for full let need with a something in a with some people it could be gambling. All pornography will with made was shook end and food as a compulsive overeater. And the only reason we're glad clinically obese of always been physically active and and if i was not eating properly and exercising. I wouldn't ever sleep. I would. And i think that looking at having dealt with so many people in our family and with people have met of the years that alcohol sometimes puts people to sleep just eventually knocks you out so eventually do sleep when you're very active brain not taught how to look off draw brain. How what does alcohol do to bring. What is caffeine due to the brain so one minute drinking coffee over here and then that's like over stimulating central noticing. Make all your nerve cells five. Ab rapidly and then you'd having alcohol too. Because that's a natural depressant than you take the to calm you down and put you to sleep and then you wake up the next morning and you hung oversee start with the coffee again in the brain goes into overdrive. Then you would lots of sugar into the coffee. So you just getting on this treadmill and i think i think if we were taught the staff about how everybody body reacted to sit and things from when we were kids. Part of the reason assorted school is that we would understand how our body worked and figure stuff out pretty soon and make good choices. But that's me probably being idealistic as well if you were talking to someone. That was drinking super too much. They weren't really aware of what it was doing to that office. That brains. what what would you tell them. How would you summarize the home that it does to us. Gee i'm the first thing we know. Is it really damages the central nervous system in the brain. And we've now these quite a lot of research showing that parkinson's disease which michael j. fox got a really young age and he has a. He was a big drinker. Huge drinker everything. I've read on him. The alcohol played a big role in. He's laughing was younger. That can damage your central nervous system. and it doesn't do it alone. Units alcohol and sugar and bed diets and bed living but alcohol plays a huge role in that. It really affects a whole lot of things affect your central nervous system in your brain so you don't handle stress well and lacewell you handle stress. The more you're going to drink because it numbs you. Eugenic feel you can just numb yourself. you stop feeling in dozen courage assistant behavior because it becomes all about my feelings and my stress and my money to numb in. I mean we all know this. We would go without food in a hassle appearance drink and i've seen it in other families. The mother a single mumble drink because she's lonely or because she feels a failure whatever. Her reasons are and there'll be no food in the fridge. Another normal alcoholic friggin. Look on his nets moke in there in a piece of cheese. And that's about it if you lackey Most just don't have food in them. And i know as kids if they was cheese enough ridge. We would flatness in like half an hour because he's a no win. The food was going come which didn't help but encourage things like a compulsive over eating so a central nervous system and that's the one side the other side that in a fix and impacts really badly as the indicating system and that's a system that controls every single part of the buddy janice it controls your liver your lungs your kidneys digestive tract your muscle tone. You sleep your menstrual cycles. Your facility these nothing. It's not in your breathing. Your lung function your hair. Growth your nails. You'll skin it it. It affects every single part. The endocrine system produces hormones in different parts of the body in those hormones may chemical reactions take place which makes the body function properly. Have alcohol's interfering with it function because what it does is it actually pushes your blood sugar up really really high so you feel like good on alcohol woo and then your blood sugar over produces your body produces over produces insulin. 'cause you're about to go into a diabetic coma and in your body's designed to repeat itself over produces the insulin brings it all the way back down and as it starts to slide mcdonagh feeling really tired immaculate and sleep and pass out if it gets really bad And then you you. You might have something like coffee or tea or another drink to try and raise your blood sugar again so when you blood. Sugar fluctuates fitting brain and central nervous. System your endocrine system and your immune system and you can understand the not explaining this very well with the whole covid. Nineteen they send. People are drinking and having caught accidents but alcohol suppresses immune function. That's what it does. So the government instead of educating everybody in showing us adverts over and over which i think would help better than just locking everybody down and telling you you know these content touch alcohol reagan so ridiculous. You can't buy alcohol during the on the weekend so everybody's just by way more so every restaurant selling wine under the counter to the clients you know because they can't make money selling food during lockdown. It was bizarre to see the activities that going on at the end of the day understood. Exactly what it does. And how it suppresses immune function we must take these things a little bit more seriously than being wrecked on the knuckles suck educate people that teach them the stuff so i think other thing that it does and this is fascinating. Refined sugar does exactly the same thing is alcohol does just desert loose something called reactive hopper blah seamier. Which when the blood sugar shoots up to high we over produce insulin and brings it right down so down so far down your blood sugar that the part of the brain your frontal lobe that controls moral behavior planning and forethought will just shuts down completely. Okay and the part of the brain that takes over as part of the brain that controls aggression appetite and sexual function. And i think this is probably really important to help people understand these blackouts that they have so you can have a blackout but you not passed out you just living life. I mean. I know a girl that poured wax all over yourself. Hot wax in that state couldn't remember how she got burned from this x. She took all our clothes often. Did this is absurdity. Because the people that were they told her what she does. She could not believe she did something like that. I had a woman that came and spoke to me. Because i was when i speak often speak about the stuff because it played such a role in my life and how important it is to make. Sure you're getting the right kind of glucose about in a while. And she came up to me after she said. I'm embarrassed to raise my hand and tell you what i do but cannot speak to you privately. Acid short can understand when she told me the story. She said i'm going to tell you. I'm very very committed. Christian person go to church regularly. my husband's actually involved in the leadership of the church. We go to bible study on wednesday nights. We go to between one and three services and the sunday we we're involved in the charitable work and stuff but she says periodically. I wake up in another town or another suburb in strange man's bid. And i have no recollection of how i got the and i say to you consume and she said. Nah don't i said are you a sugar addict. And she said yes osama title sugar addict and it does the brain. What alcohol does we. You just black out completely. Obviously you've got to be extreme amounts of sugar to do this but alcohol does the same thing you drink. Extreme amounts you'd binge drink and the knicks thing you wake up and you in somebody else's bid and like how the hell did you get in the shame of all of this is worse than you start drinking again and this whole thing goes on so what happens is when the primitive brain takes over. You either going to get aggressive. You're going to just eat and eat and eat canoe appetites. Just nothing's gonna be enough or you. Could your sexual function could take over. And you become extremely promiscuous and that's clearly very dangerous because besides possibility of fathering all mothering a child you could end up with terrible sexual diseases. So it's it's a huge problem and people don't know this until somebody like me comes and tells him and nobody studies this. Because you take the average psychologist or psychiatrist. Dr they studying medicine and how to cheat you when you sick with medicine and surgery than looking. And what is the cause of all these problems and vivian often. It's a physiological or physical course an and utrition is something that's kind of just ignored and net. That study was done with reactive. Hoppy glycemic was done by women. Called baba read stood. She lived in the united states and operated in stable municipal area and she was in charge of the juvenile delinquent and criminal juvenile delinquent and the prisoners. The adult prisoners in the end the juvenile delinquents and she found that of them something like ninety three percent of the people that she'd work with suffered from this reactive hypoglycemia and in that state of blacked out. Where you can't remember what went on people will kill the family. They'll the children we ask you. Yeah then they will beat somebody into coma they'll be do the most. They'll they'll commit a crime. And they have no recollection of course when you committing crimes being something people like as easy to say you lost your mind and you can't remember but it's an actual condition where you had no recollection of went on. It's completely blacked out. You listening to reply to alcohol. The podcast from world without one if eat lights join our tribe. Please check out website. That wine don't cold so yeah. Apparently those many people in child but have done that have a blackout killed somebody. You cannot in jail recollection too. Many people in jail i mean. Can you imagine Horrendous but blackouts very common in all community. We talk about the loss of people have blackouts. I used to have the have them as well Boston is like all it was a walking talking blackout because I was with some friends for afternoon. And apparently i seem quite normal. You know i was walking around talking. We'd walk quite a long way together. I have no recollection. I mean we'd been drinking since frightful Drink but i. It just hit me over the edge. I lost an entire. And you know i used to have blackouts where the end of the evening was a bit fuzzy Quite remember how it may be. But this one was really serious Hated the idea thought woking talking blackout the fat my brain was so alcoholic couldn't even make memories nazi Absolutely terrifying and here's the thing that people don't understand is that you'll cells and your buddy a designed to consume glucose. Nothing works in your in your at salable. You got thirty seven trillion cells in your body. They desperately need glucose they needed to make. Atp a denison triphosphate which is what creates energy your monaco andrea desperately. Need that your every little organ nelio in the plasma critical in these tiny little things inside the cell that you can't even see with your naked eye it needs glucose your brain and central system can't work without glucose and if you're not getting enough you going to crave alcohol or sugar and barbara read stood say we knew feed children refined sugar growing up on any level. She said you're actually preparing them for alcoholism because they get into the cycle. The blood sugar going up and it's coming down and they feel that the sugar satisfies and then you you graduate from a kid to adolescence or young young person in your twenties wait sitting stuffing faced with ice cream and chocolate says locked kind of interdict so will have a drink and it does. What sugar to to you. And now you recognize that. Except that the alcohol gives you even a bit of feeling takes you higher disrupts you lower so if we understood that we need need proper glucose for body's natural glucose and and so often when i've done a talk i actually say to the audience and i remember reading this one year at a secrets convention at sun city outside johannesburg. The were probably five hundred people Woman and i said to them. Okay if you do any of you crave sugar and they've just everybody put the hand and i said when you craving sugar. What is it that you put into your mouth. What is it you put. And what is it that you actually craving an attempt to get the point across. Imagine yourself in the garden of eden and you craving something sweet. What would you eat.

After woman in that last episode i mean i mean the whole series. I mean that was definitely one thing that was consistent from bamiyan series. Two new batman adventures. The music is really great. Oh yeah because you gotta be some the best music or cartoon kinda get that slower without me Wing of course you get the faster and yeah some of the some of the best a cartoon out there. I mean because it's a real orchestra. Oh i imagine along cartoons stole budget for reward. Only because i remember like mayo in the animated series. I started their everyone just rave this long. Just the animation in the story. It's like the music and it's like adult in those first couple of seasons like adults can watch kids can watch it you know. Yeah i mean all those all those shows that universe or like you know even like the superman and the justice league stuff by i mean. Yeah i mean i don't think any animated universe since then it's gone it as it as well was like the batman universe the animated series universe even the new adventures. I think is it's good. It's i mean. I've watched the subsequent batman series but again maybe old but i always liked the animated series the do adventures over anything. All i think if you hadn't had batman the animated series then i wouldn't have anything i mean if if intermission had always been the way it is with new batman adventures. I'd be like yeah. It's good it's good. They did in the intimated series version. Who are and that is just more to my face. Yeah like you said the score like those you know. I think the stories were deeper and more in depth with the first a couple seasons. And i don't think they had some two partners Part the now had any importers. And i think it was like the first two or three like they were worried about. I mean there were probably like okay. We might sell some toys. That's nice but i don't think they were as worried about selling toys. They were just like tolkien stories. The camera one is yet definitely good. Old wounds good but yeah. I mean i've watched.

To watching Rachel Maddow or either reading a book about White Rachel White Fragility like it takes years conversations in years of development and years of our work, and we're not gonNA barely touch everybody in this lifetime but we have to be also very patient with the fact that as a society we're going in a better direction time-honored is really law.

Did it have access to running water or told his death flush? At fifty sixty years that has changed a great deal childhood mortality has changed a great deal.

You know one hundred, fifty years from now that we have to be okay with that except for climate change. I. Love You used the word educated because I hear that as the answer to everything like people just gotTa, get educated. Once we get people educated then everything will be better. I don't even know what that means like. I know people with Masters and. Doctorates and they say the most racist things I've ever heard saw everybody's education is different so It's not education that we need. It's empathy. It's sympathy. It's like really giving time to learn about these things. You ask how was phrased but I've given time to research that slavery didn't end in eighteen, sixty, five I've given time to research that black people were still discriminated against getting mortgages in the nineties we just talked earlier about how black families are convinced to sell their homes for cheaper than white families or a appraisal rates are higher for whites than blacks these are systemic. Racist issues that in twenty twenty still carry on I one time share that there are more black males in prison. Than there are that live in thirty two states combine I didn't think it was true I had the double check triple check. You posted at yeah, and that blew my mind like I had to double check that myself. I thought that was like a gross exaggeration at it's sadly true.

But whatever on in my opinion they don't really Well I mean I guess you could say this I mean you could always say. Tim didn't know Dick was back in Gotham last that last story but yet no. That's horrible wonders is where it really starts. Yeah because while Batman Batman Batmans trying to set a trap for two phase dictates Tim to the manner.

But I'll be like the other years they were together. Always kind of nebulous. Everybody just kind of does we are right here. I think they were going for like twelve eighteen or thirteen and nineteen. Yeah but it's just weird because yeah. The timing was all off in the comics at this point because like Batman Year one they had Batman had no robin and then like Jason from the technical at that made your to there is still no robbins. They're like you know they really condensed that six years ticket to get Jason and they're right right well but you know Robbins six years from Batmans but yeah whatever but yeah he's like you know we're the dynamic dooby took down every crooked Cross our path but then we get the scene from Batman four zero eight till the day. I got careless to pull in and then like zoom responsibility but then you know this kind of makes sense picked a great big hole in life. couldn't even say you couldn't even say goodbye case reading how this because in other originally he was already in college so in this regard they're kind of changing up and so yeah one thing.

I kept my Robert sued and I decided to have a new outfit new name and yeah so even then even though bruce kind of kicking him out you know it's still which is which is kind of funny because you can you know bruce has been keeping an eye on because you 'cause he knew. Dick wasn't robin anymore. So you give the identity to Jason here without asking Yet well then you see then when you get to the next day. I saw with outsiders. And he's got this smile smile on his face so yes roses proud. Get it. But Yeah but Bruce. Bring Bruce. Didn't tell anything about Jason.

It's alright to take on a side. Geic bruce that doesn't even make sense with your Deleo. I think I've a right to know why. Tusla using question the answer will want. She got the damn mask and give it a try and and he really gets it some good emotional stuff. You Know Bruce. It's time for you to step out on your own. Which is why of course you know. There's really Exempt. They're making it nicer than the not so to speak. You know the best thing to do is drive me out people from getting too close you man. I love this line of it really captures why this was such a big deal and he says did matter to you did. I didn't have any live other than the one share. Yeah think about it. I mean Bruce Amanda that the Dick would was on call twenty four seven and then it's like oh warning I know us for me is basically pushed him out of his life. It's like the two extremes bruce's no no middle ground right and that's why it was saying that's why I had to leave. Because that's what makes it these things. So hard is because he Bamiyan Rob in the euro thing but also the father son thing is what the Heck Bruce when he goes about it you know. Cavalier fashion. Yeah then. It's it's not like you're just saying hey stopping my sidekick Gobi something else it also feels you know these kids that you're kind of get out of my life in all the way and that's really a Why the new kid sweep Jason's origin very very quickly. I mean this is the post crisis origin. Where he jason was the street kid stealing the tires off the batmobile. Can you imagine if it was like he was a circus acrobat? His family was really terrible. Then he's like all Dude Okay Batman Robin Phone set what are the truth. Bruce during talking like that drew what a great breaking because he can play case open. Yeah Okay I admit it. I was lonely. I miss you but then Dick's kind of surprised expression if you look. It wasn't totally suspecting a bluff now because of course now that admitted again like Dick said earlier you push people to anyone who gets too close to you. Bruce always them before they get the chance to hurt you and then once. He admits I miss you. And he's like I love. Now get out so like Kinda put him away again but at least we know so. This could do this. Conversation happened quickly or did it take all day because we see Jason outside now Jesus coming home from school housing long they talk about what's GonNa say he's either just leaving school where he's coming home. Yeah Yeah Must Jason skipped or something? Yeah so then. Now this time Batman whose narration beginning on page nineteen. Maybe that's wasn't they're not doing as good a job in these older comics of mental brain there in a week. 'cause I think I think at the beginning it's Dick. Who's doing the near who doing the narration. Maybe many or maybe or. Maybe you're supposed to think it's Dick. I've been waiting but he says I've been waiting for you. Find A lab Hey this makes sense. He gives him his last robin outfit. You'll grow into it and Solves that problem but love gives them his card. I love this part. There's going to be. There's going to be times when you WanNa talk to someone like you know. I've been where you're adamant good listener. Jason thanks Bruce is not much of a talker. He's like Dick. I know that's the biggest problem. Don't let it be yours right. Yes so yes you know. Yeah Jason didn't really interact all that. Yeah so it makes it kind of question. It's kept. He had had the kind of relationship with Jason that he has with like Tim. And even Damian what Jason's have not died. I duNno 'cause one. Yeah I mean he was looking for his mother Gavitt but he he was Kinda hot head and in the story line were like the one before he died like him in that member facing this guy who was like basically harassing this woman but he had diplomatic immunity. So the cops couldn't do anything thinking also drug dealer but like Jason Catches up to him. Before Bruce Bruce shows up in the skies like falling off his like I don't know like tenth floor balcony or something. He's Jason. What happened and Jason like Oh. He's slipped us. They'd never admit it but I think Jason Killed Somebody before even became Red Hood. So what's up? Don't let it be yours. They the bad guys in one hundred and twenty seconds. I know that's so cute. God The price on that side cake duly noted old timer guns whatever they taken down two minutes. No problem right to privacy might smiles. Thanks so bruise. Like thanks for being okay with Jason. Even though I gave him your sous and you know about it so yeah I always think of it in. I like speak about four sixteen as yet digging. Jason didn't have nearly as close of a relationship with the other. Robin does not like the hated. No on never met and they just weren't as as close. I mean I think the big reason was because you know. Dick wasn't in the Batman. Books that much so there really wasn't in a lot of opportunity for cross. You know like the to them. Hang out I mean. By the time I started hanging out with Tim fulltime yet. He's in he's like a regular member of the bat books again right. Yeah Yeah I mean it. Definitely a lot of stuff to do with the way comics were than I mean. I'm not sure when the switch wins which game but eighties right wasn't new new titans. That was the best seller So yeah so yeah having Yeah so in. Yeah of course like why would you have Dick as much in immediate make sense Big As much in the Batman Comics because the whole reason you made him Knight Wing was to get him out of comics. You can have in the defense comics. So yeah that make sense. Why was in? It wasn't inasmuch. He's still trying to figure itself out with rose On character level. Jason doesn't want his help as much want me yet? Yeah totally WanNa Dick Sell. Jason didn't want as much So yeah I don't think yeah it's not like everybody eight eastern or whatever before I'd and I think most out of its started plotting his dash it just seemed like the starting making him more surly and more brat the closer they got the death in the family. Some of the writers who were riding. Bamut in this period really. Didn't like the idea of Robin and so I think they didn't want US Robyn and they didn't really like Robin. I believe I heard. I don't th- I believe someone said that Might have been on a podcast or something I heard but I think I heard somewhere that like starling. Didn't like the idea of any Robin. He what he thought Batman would be better working alone. I mean although I think overall it's very good issue And it's really good. And I we and Robin issue but yeah I think after the seventies when they finally sent Dick Sued College in through the back of things I mean some then one then you get a lot of writers. I would say who comics reading in some some vague grown up on. I guess was Batman on his own. Yes so I think that some of those writers they had read a lot of comics in the seventies. They were more used to Batman On on his own and so they may be working as Jez. The idea now and the closer they got to Batman Eighty nine. I think it was more along the lines of. Hey batmans alone. Yeah Yeah Alright. So anything else on these. I think that's everything all right. Well speaking of Robin's stay. Well we're about to get in the good run of some of my favorites next episode Batman Year Three. Yeah Awesome Batman. Four thirty six thousand four hundred eighty nine followed immediately of course by lonely place.

I mean you have to think that the president the national security adviser secretary state have something planned for the inevitable response to the the devil retaliation that comes you gotta think they got a plan wouldn't you think I would rather blame bait down is that what is the big concern is for a long term one think your listeners need to understand is that with the target in also a mini we have moved to a different phase of the history of the Middle East for for years to come and that's where the with the big problem is think of it this way Mike speaking for example of how the tensions between US on the running game and on the geographical location all level for that matter I know you're gonna have to think in terms of where Ramsden a target the U. S. interest when you consider for example our presence in the Gulf in Iraq in Syria in Lebanon in Yemen in Pakistan in Afghanistan and even today Indian subcontinent we cannot manage older through there are the same time and the runner has that reach if you will truly rates proxies and this is where my concern personally I speak for myself year where my concern is what is the strategy for the next day was the administration does not have what let me ask you doctor well Lou what why do you say that and do you know that for a fact that they do not have a strategy I mean yeah I hope that they would but doesn't sound like you think so what of course we hope that they do and I am sure if it is something is gonna be basing on some local dot we are not going to consider what the part because we don't know what the possibilities open run we spoke on no thank you take into consideration jokes today the discipline deal reiki parliament to expel the US military presence from Iraq which usually is going to prevent us from even dealing with the region close by because by the thought of your forces are withdrawn from Iraq a lens with a feeling that thank you and the decision or in a strategic the Mormons from around perspective will be launched from the area would be launched from a right would be launched from Yemen and and that's where my concern personally is because if they were a strategy in place we wouldn't know what to leave it to understand that okay I do we have a plan that the FAA happens this is what the answer is going to be if the beer happened this is what the US is that the so far because the decision all star game so I many will happen though yeah without the consent of preparing for the plan well what the after action is well let me ask you this doctor while Lou and it's a tough question if you don't want to answer I understand do you think that president trump's actions were morally justified in your opinion if you want to give it well I got six hundred Americans and he was if you believe secretary state Pompeii OO he was planning another imminent attack well loaded based on my conversation with the owner of the pro for that yet so we need to American has an American are you have to see the facts before the making that kind of call of that decision without judgment well because it's been that question all the faulty intelligence to what degree the we believe what the government saying on the other hand so they many a day he is not a good guy either all the blood even though all he's in orbit the battle for American soldiers in Afghanistan bidet in Pakistan be there in a ragged beat in Yemen beating so he's not a not a photo of an easy man to think a band like this or that right he he has blood on his hands of the Americans and is so on the one hand we see is that we all the owner and we gonna think in terms of target in the individual like that a high rank using within a mellow within a sovereign state or whatever in a sovereign country unlike a lack of because that's what's going to create the detentions for a week awak waves with the church and I am sure they will reach the decision of the spelling of your presence the military presence in Iraq all together under the present us from major platform from which we can manage certain aspects in a minute let me ask you this you touched on this a little bit by how do you think our allies in the region are going to react to this now I know already prime minister Netanyahu is come out he was very supported by the rest of our allies over there and how they can react to this thing in the long run do you think well there is a big concern over the islands and this is where one of the issues I believe when the news came out of my thinking was located we coordinate with our allies because which something like it is other thing you need to thank for what the next day your you have coordinated with your allies and our partners and so forth the Israelis not enough for one country is not enough and this is now the allies in the region is gonna be thinking in terms I don't want to be caught in the middle of all this because I learn operates and we actually use would be existence not only in our land but also in Yemen bottle free Syria Lebanon Iraq and Kuwait and even in certain aspects within the southeastern part also the Arabia hello so the big picture is well we can't do this alone we have to have a life to manage the governor and you look at a one and a half two weeks ago actually we want to go conducted naval exercises with China and Russia and what the hell to me are the geopolitical analyst is that the already forty nine in order and with some other key players that we've been noticed on the global stage there have been burned in they always spend in their presence that run through the rely upon in dealing with the United States so you can just see how the complexity of geopolitical landscaping abilities get anywhere photo complex more than it's already a well let me ask you I guess this sixty four thousand dollar question here based on your background training and it's an experience which is which is vast do you have any idea or if you thought about and have an opinion as to what form rand's shorten reply reprisal is gonna take what are they gonna do to us do you have any idea Dr that comes to my mind are one of them is cyber first year the attacks which should be already I believe they were the last one this morning I believe on the one of the federal government site because I was on the U. S. federal depository library program it was hacked with the picture over bloodied president being punched in the face that's the fiber parts would be one the second one will be there for the range and medium range missiles that's gonna be targeting certain care area where the US military presence not the civilians because here is why because all ran and their stern how long does the target the military element yeah that would be sort of okay with them but not sun and those are the two the third element would be around gonna increase now its nuclear program as well as the wind blew he which basically is not just really helpful in any international ties up out of the nuclear program and does so we I learned that I see is that I'd be happening soon well let me ask you this in in it may be the most important question of all he touched on a little bit with your last response I mean you wrote the book literally volatile state Iran in the nuclear age what is the status doctor if you know of their nuclear program at this time could they hit us with a nuclear device that I know you just mentioned maybe the allies but what is the status of their nuclear program well one thing Mike I put in the book at the end of the conclusion is that I would not close the door are we not fools before on a run region the region is serve probation of your program but acquiring the bomb I left the door open because there is the possibility for that and now we'd be targeting also recently many a run would justify it supposed to speeding up the program to acquire the bomb and or not even doesn't have to be a full of bomb it could be some sort of capacity that could create some sort of dramatic dramatic outcome to its explosion and so forth so the delivery of programs that have been out speed up very very fast I'll tell you what it's some scary stuff doctor Wallace did indeed and then the the just to let your listeners the the landscape in the Middle East now has changed a hundred eighty degrees I will have to be vigilant doctor while Lou we really thank you for joining us tonight you've helped immensely in trying to break this thing down my pleasure my cover letter thank you bye bye bye bye yeah that was Dr David wala Lou cool man he puts a pretty serious face on this thing as it should be and the man based on his background training and experience as we lawyers like to say certainly knows the area so some sobering stuff Hey we got to take a break but we'll be back Mike Allen in for bill Cunningham live on Sunday night will curry chief strategy officer at your talk you essays here to tell us how easy it is to switch to peer talk and save up to fifty percent on your.

Again, I'm here with my Afghan colleague swipe Chevy who's a journalist enough ghanistan in two thousand and one when this destruction happened you remember that time like a load of these shattered Luas, you see what put on display as a no move until that Buddhas, and the statues wasn't something forbidden. So what happened to change the telephone mind? We had all of sudden this decree of Milomar came. The Taliban leader back then decree hand written decree came from Kandahar. This is a decree Malone says in judgment day, when I get I want to be known as the idol destroyer, and it ended with the statues of commune in Buddha's should be destroyed.

"bamiyan" Discussed on The Cycling Podcast
"That's unheard of in a country like that. And so I think that scene with these women were doing for what seems very basic just the simp-. Act of getting on a bicycle it was pretty crazy to realize gosh, there aren't any women doing this in the country. They real- it really is just as handful. And then obviously looking back. I think as we got deeper into the production, and I started researching it more, I honestly didn't know the role that the bicycle played in our own women's suffrage movement, definitely here in the states. But as I've looked into it in many, western countries, it is vehicle that gave women freedom and independence, and mobility and all of that good stuff that we have today. And so seeing those parallels was really fascinating as we were digging deeper with the women won't striking watching the the writers you focus on his they're not just riding their bikes there, actually, there's are so competitive drive. They're they're quite keen to be proper cyclist rather than to just use the bicycling utilitarian way, they seem driven by a desire to to be good into unto compete, and ultimately some of them do compete. Yeah. Definitely the national team in Kabul. Our main story arc there. Most of those women do want to compete on the international stage, while there's always the thought in their mind that they just want to change the culture in Afghanistan, I'm generalizing here. But most of those characters want to be competitive cyclists, whereas Bambi on when you know, our little our sub story that we cut to a couple of times in the film, those women out in the mountain Neo central region of Afghanistan the ferry mountainous, and and spread out, you know, they just wanna be able to ride a bicycle the way that the boys and men do in their community. So that they can get to school faster and run errands more efficiently as that characters are our main character in Bamiyan says a bicycle can get you out of a bad situation faster. You know, so there for them. It's definitely more of the cultural shift, whereas the national team in Kabul is wanting to they have dreams of going to international races.
