A statement says 11 Italian and 19 Hungarian soldiers have sustained multiple injuries including fractures and burns from improvised explosive incendiary devices. It adds three Hungarian soldiers were wounded by the use of firearms, but their injuries are not life threatening. Kosovo police fired tear gas to disperse the crowd as they tried to let new officials into the offices. Serbia put the country's military on high alert and sent more troops to the border with Kosovo, the two countries have been foes for decades with Belgrade refusing to recognize Kosovo's 2008 sovereignty.

"Let's shut down the trains. I agree, banning away fans. I need to see the other scary element. And for people are outside Europe, they may not understand there's people who aren't very familiar with ultra's networks. There's a cohort of people that like to fight around football matches. And a lot of these ultras groups. And by the way, I'm not saying I'm director worst monopoly, not believes ultra groups have gone into ton of troubles. They've also been banned in Italy from going to way games and stuff. There's some really bad elements in there. But there are cohorts of these people who ally, who want an excuse for a fight. Yeah, for sure. So as you said, there was a suggestion that people coming from I think red star Belgrade, ultras, were rumored to be coming down, fine art, ultras were rumored to be coming down. Each one picking sides, okay, we'll team up with eintracht. You guys team up with Napoli. This is a city that people live in. You know, we're in our football bubble. If you're an elderly person, you don't want to get caught up in this. There's an argument to be made two Cox payer resources going to pay for all this. Once you get that Intel, problem is from the outside when it's the chief of police unilaterally making the decision. It's never a good look. Abdel was a man. The manager of anger has been sacked. Jules, what did he do? Yeah, that's another crazy story. There's a player anger yesterday the left back who has been charged for sexually assaulting a girl in a nightclub. And the manager was a three was a good idea before the game. The weekend where we knew of the charges to send his team talk before the match to set to the players, well, Shetty is starting the game. I left back because it's not that serious what he did. We've all touched girls before. Which, as you can imagine, went down pretty badly within his own dressing room with his own players who were shocked by the fact that their manager could use technology like that and was like that saying sexually assaulting someone is okay. I think we've all done it pretty much. There's nothing wrong with touching girls. I think most people have done it. There's a little word called consent in there, which seems what's in dispute here. It's incredible. I mean, it was a terrible manager on top of it. How did this come out? If he said it in the players at some point, it could not let that go. I mean, already they knew that he was completely out of his depth as a manager. He hadn't won any single game in the 12 games in charge that he had or 11 games in charge that he had. And they were very, very happy. It was a table scene, but they were happy to leak it because they knew they would get rid of him and rightly so and I didn't deserve to be a coach on it. It doesn't even deserve to be at that club anymore. This is a club, by the way, anger who had another players charge recently for exhibiting himself. Exposing himself again and doing weird stuff. It's a crab that the owner, by the way. Kyle walker of a French cousin. Maybe. But the owner of anger in June, his trial, we start for sexual sexually harassing some member of the club as well. So the owner is not nor a regret. He's another guy. There's a lot of things going wrong at that club right now. Juventus are hoping that a procedural error will help them overturn the 15 points penalty that they receive for force accounting Gabor is this about. So basically there's another, it's like an administrative tribunal that said that decided to allow some sort of evidence without getting too loyally and complicated. You know my feelings here. They allowed you to submit this kind of evidence in the sporting tribunal, which will decide whether to uphold or to throw out their appeal against a 15 point penalty. It all centers around when basically, if you're a prosecutor, if you request evidence of official evidence from the case it was the financial control body retirement football, you then have 60 days to open an investigation. Apparently or the suggestion here is that they requested the evidence and then sat on it for more than 60 days, which means then you can't open investigation. And this would mean you are getting off on a technicality. You've been getting off on a technicality while it's good in the immediate, if they get their 15 points back, I don't think there's a clean outcome. I don't think it's a good outcome. I think it leads all the suspicion of wrongdoing. I hope, and by the way, this would invalidate some of the evidence against them not all of them. You should, yeah, of course, pursue this because ultimately needs must and his financial stakes, you know how to do, you know, look at their shareholders. But hopefully you can get this overturned in a way that everybody understands and not answer kind of to show that you will encounter to show that you and to show that this case, this idea that it's a system or whatever, is nonsense. And there's something wrong, by the way, with a legal system, which doesn't give you a pathway to do that, that actually encourages you, well, no, there's too difficult to prove. So much headache. Hey, let's take this technicality here, we'll let you all. Is back in full training for arsenal. How excited should go to be? Very excited because he's returning to an attempt to make the team better. Of course, they were still good with our him. They'd be better with him. It's another option. It's another body. He's a very tiny player, especially when he gets back to full fitness to his best. Like he was before his knee injury. So it's great news, of course, because you always scared that maybe there'd be a setback there or a muscular injury following up him, being really eager to come back and to full fitness, et cetera. So for now, it looks like he's on track and then whenever he can start again, maybe at you expect him to go, maybe get 15 minutes there, 20, 30, you don't want to rush him either. Europa League tonight is too soon. Yeah. But maybe a cameo this year. Yeah, it's only I think so. I think so. It says that Bruno Fernandes will continue to be much the united standing captain when having Maguire is now around. Gap, is this a thing? I mean, this is so stupid. He's kind of behavior and body language. Oh, so you can't be standing captain. No, no. The people, I blame the people who make this a thing on social media. I blame us in the media. We should have the news judgment, not to follow up. Not to ask Eric ten hogg. These stupid questions. Unless the united player comes out and says, even off the record, I'm not comfortable with Bruno Fernández being stand in captain. What does that even mean? It reminds me of like when Marino's decided, oh, Paul Pogba is no longer one of her four vice captains. Eric should be made to answer this. Yeah. You know, Eric and Han will give the captain's arm band, do whatever he wants to, right? I mean, Harry Maguire is a club captain, but he doesn't always play. What do you expect to have to say?

I'll battle the kids for pal on sleds and my pals are for. I do not need to be at a resort. But I don't know. I think there's a way to throttle it and to do it. But back to your chairlift ride a little bit. I think what was important that you didn't maybe even realize that you did is you were in uniform, I'm assuming you were patrolling. And you stopped and spoke with that person. Whether or not you knew that was important to me a consumer, someone in a uniform who represents the ski resort. Taking the time to stop and say that is so important on changing our industry. I don't know. I think that's so important. Like I think that guy went home and was like, you know what, a ski patrol came up to me after like a shitty lift ride and was like, hey, that's not cool. Like as simple as that. Hey, that's not cool. I think that goes so much further. And I think that's what we as industry people or just I'm not an industry person. I just scale a lot. I'm a consumer. I don't now I guess they work for the skin industry, because I have this podcast, but I photograph weddings. I photograph weddings so I can ski a hundred days a year. I don't want to work, I don't want to ski patrol, because I don't want anyone to ruin my day. I'm selfish. I want to go skiing. So, but so if someone in uniform says something to me or like me who maybe some kid looks up to at my local resort can like say that's rad or that's not acceptable. I think that goes a long way. And I think we're at that point in our ski culture where we can finally speak up. And not to be jerks, speak up to be like, hey, that's not cool. Yeah. Yeah, and I think one thing that I took away from that whole interaction was like, I don't think that in that moment, if I had tried to shut the abuser down, it probably just wouldn't have been received very well. And especially like being in uniform being a patroller and being like, hey man, that's not very nice. He would have just been like, yeah, ski patrol nerds, like, whatever, you know? Or like, yeah, well, I grew up in Belgrade, so like, I have the right to say whatever I want. And it's like, well, no you don't, but also if you can just take that person that was getting straight up like pretty much verbally abused is what I'm gonna call it. If you're just like, hey, that's not how everybody thinks fuck that guy. Nah, you're fine. Keep doing you. Yeah, I think it goes a long way. I really do. And I do think someone will put that snowboarder in his place. I had a recent experience. I was in California last weekend, and I was working with a bunch of people I didn't know. You know, sometimes you just get into groups. And I said something that was insensitive, but not in the right circle, but just 'cause I didn't know. It was ignorant because of my lack of education. And I admit that and I'm not going to say what it was because I would never want to get canceled publicly. But the guy called me out and I was like, holy shit, I've been saying this for a long time. And it was something stupid. It was like a joke, but he called me out. And I'll never say that again. But it has to be the right scenario. Like it just has to be you in uniform on a chairlift who's not the right time to call that personnel. But this guy who's like my peer who I'm working with and again, it wasn't like, it wasn't like a horrible thing, but it was just something that he was like, hey, we don't joke about that. And I was like, you're right. I'm 100% wrong, and now I know that. And I can move forward. And I think having the confidence, that guy had the confidence to call me out as a peer, and it was so refreshing. And that was me getting called out. And.

"Largely silent on the subject of gun rights for more than a decade But now it appears that the newly conservative court will go where the justices have been reluctant to go in the past The court is poised to rule that there is a constitutional right to carry handguns outside your home During oral arguments the conservative justices were uniformly critical of the New York law that requires a special justification to get a concealed carry license Here are chief justice John Roberts and justice Brett Kavanaugh You don't have to say when you're looking for a permit to speak on a street corner or whatever that your speech is particularly important So why do you have to show in this case convince somebody that you're entitled to exercise your Second Amendment right Why isn't it good enough to say I live in a violent area and I want to be able to defend myself Joining me is a leading Second Amendment scholar Adam Winkler a professor at UCLA law school What's your take on which way the justices are leaning after oral arguments Well it did appear that there were a majority of justices that were prepared to strike down New York's restrictions on concealed carry It's always hard to figure out the tea leaves just from oral argument but there was considerable skepticism from all of the conservatives off court towards New York's restrictions How restrictive is the New York law New York's law is pretty restrictive Well the laws of most states allow almost anyone to get a permit so long as they're a law abiding person But New York along with California and a handful of other states make it much more difficult and only give permits to people who can show a special need or good cause to carry a firearm And what that means is you need to have an individualized reason to carry a firearm not just I'm generally scared of crime but maybe I've been a victim of a stalker or I've had death threats or I work in a very high crime area But difficult to get a permit in New York and some other states So was that the conservative justice concern that it was difficult or more that it's a constitutional right And anyone should have the right to carry a gun Well it remains to be seen exactly how the court goes with this decision I think that it's unlikely that the court will say that as many people in the gun enthusiast world say that the Second Amendment is the only permit I need to carry a gun on the street I think the Supreme Court is likely to say that states do have authority to provide permits under required permits for concealed carry but they're going to say that it must be readily available to law abiding people There are questions about whether guns could be barred in subways Yankee Stadium NYU campus What was the import of that Well I thought that was really interesting You know the court in the Heller case said that the government has the authority under the Second Amendment to keep guns out of sensitive places like government buildings and schools The question is how many different places does that cover How broadly do we define sensitive places It did seem that if you could say that the subway and Times Square in Yankee Stadium were all sensitive places then that might be a road map for New York to revise this law should the Supreme Court strike the current restrictions down New York could allow more people to carry firearms but broadly defined sensitive places to make it very difficult to bring your gun for instance on the subway or in the Times Square or other areas of New York that are heavily populated and busy But private organizations can ban guns Well that's right I mean anyone's constitutional rights generally stop at my property line You don't have a right to exercise your free speech on my property and you don't have the right to exercise your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms on my property I don't think this court will go into at least in this case the balance between Second Amendment rights and private property What we're really talking about in the near case is the ability to carry guns in public generally When you look at the history of the limits on guns there seem to be two different views of it just as Sonya Sotomayor said to Paul Clement I don't know how I get past all that history without you sort of making it up and saying there's a right to control states that's never been exercised in the history of the United States As to how far they can go and saying this possesses a danger So how are they reading history differently Well it's one of the interesting things about this area of law It's one in which the court really does seem focused on history and tradition And if there is historical precedence for a particular safety with law then that law might be constitutional preventable And if there are not historical precedents then it's likely questionable on constitutional grounds But history really is complicated in this area There is a long history of restrictions on concealed carry and both parties were arguing in this case about how broad and what the scope of those historical bands were What just the sort of Iowa referencing was the fact that over the course of American history there have been a lot of different concealed Carrie regimes and the Supreme Court has never interfered with those judgment calls And what she's suggesting is that the conservative justices are going to create this new edifice of the Supreme Court striking down state gun laws on the grounds of history and tradition even though the Supreme Court doing that would be historically unprecedented Coming up next I'll continue this conversation with professor Adam Winkler and we'll discuss the impact of a decision in the case This is Bloomberg The names We're all.

"Does a really good job at all of those. It's very easy to get access to a car. They have probably the best range of cars. If you want a luxury car you wanna porsche. You wanna test you want any of those you can easily get it And i know. I looked in my area which is new york city which probably has more cars and other places but i did some random searches in other remote areas of the country. Just to see what it's like. And it's kinda the same so they do have a really good network. Their customer service was pretty good. What i needed. It wasn't amazing. But i don't think that was their fault and their app actually is easy to use. And i can't say that about any about most of the other apps. And so i think between all of those it i see why it's trying to ipo. I don't if it's actually going to explode. I know i've talked about a whole bunch of ipo's and Some of the ones i thought would explode. Didn't and some of the ones that didn't that. I didn't think would explode actually did so. I'm not gonna make any calls on this. I think it's way too early to tell. And i would love to see what kind of numbers they share when they eventually Announced their ipo. But until then. I'm not at all surprised that this is happening. And i think that's a good step considering everything that's been happening in this industry and last but not least is pudgy. After neil a year pudgy is officially back in india. If you remember. The title was banned last year because of its ties to china mostly but also for extreme violence the reason that caused a whole bunch of other countries actually punt it so last month after switching cloud providers from ten cents to microsoft separating it's account system so he users now need a new account system and they even had to change the color of blood. Degreen bell rounds mobile india. Which is the new name of a new title. That's really pudgy. Launched in india in its first month on google play. The game has seen twenty three million dollars according to our estimates the trend sloping down. But that's pretty normal launches in game revenue is somewhat low for such a name at an estimated six hundred and sixty thousand net revenue so far but now a revenue is going through google. Play so that could be related now. Belgrade's mobile india is currently only available on android. But i saw leak earlier today. That saying that the iphone version is coming very very soon. Maybe in the next few days. So that's going to be something to keep an eye out for. I know india is android heavy. And so i don't expect the irs released do any any amazing to have any amazing impact on download tone revenue. But it's going to be interesting to see how that plays out. Especially when we have numbers to compare from. Google play also also interesting is craft in which is the company behind pub. Gee just went public last week in south korea and they weren't really doing all that hot in opening week but i think that's going to change. Pudgy is huge. If you think about it it's in a whole bunch of countries in. It's it's got a huge following. So i think they are in a lot of trouble in some countries especially the countries that care about extreme violence and that's kind of what happened in india. They also were banned in china. Which i thought was crazy when i first heard it. Mostly for extreme violence so they had to make some changes including blood turning green. And i read somewhere that People wave off as they die. Which i thought was funny.

"Will stop the food on project, Kerrison said. And we will take a stand on every single issue where we see the government representing the interests of the 1% over the 99%. Carson has already taken his own stand against the project. Last week, he named four new streets in the city after the victims of the Chinese government's policies. There's now a Dalai Lama street, a free Hong Kong road, a road of wigger martyrs. And Bishop C. Shuguang Road named after persecuted Chinese Catholic priest in response to Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman called the action disgusting. But according to Stefan Vladislav Iev, foreign policy analyst at the Belgrade Security Forum, many Hungarians are disgusted with Prime Minister Viktor Orban's cozy relationship with Beijing. It is seen as the country in the European Union that has the most favorable stand stores. The partnership with Beijing. Apart from the Fudan University campus, flatter, Savelyev says many Hungarians are also angry about a nearly $3 billion Chinese backed high speed rail project that will connect Budapest with the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Hungary will pay 15% of the costs upfront for its portion of the rail line and take out a loan from a Chinese bank for the rest of it, while a company owned by a childhood friend of Orban's will help construct it. Then last year at the beginning of the pandemic, Hungary's parliament gave Orban emergency executive powers. The majority in Hungarian parliament used the state of emergency to push some of the aspects of the railroad contract and some of the other countries that he had been tied to the Chinese. One of the measures made the details of the contract with China classified protecting them from public scrutiny. Catelyn Che, a member of the EU parliament for one of Hungary's opposition parties, says that's why there is so much popular angst over the $2 billion plan to build the Chinese campus in Budapest. The first of its kind in the EU, and in general, it seems like a very, very bad deal for Hungarian taxpayers, Hungarian students. That's where everybody who character that democracy general in response to the protest. Orban's government has back pedaled the plan, saying that after the cost of the university are finalized, Budapest residents will be able to vote on a referendum that would determine the fate of the project. She says. This rare concession from Orban shows he's worried about losing votes in next year's national election. Almost the population lives in good effect. So of course they don't want to lose the vote on the Chinese University. So there's a bit inquire maybe to be more lenient on this issue, but this is really, really unique because they don't usually back down and the opposition protests. More bands. Conservative Fidesz party is facing its first real threat in the elections next year after three successive landslide win since 2010 and according to public opinion polls, support for the Chinese campus in Budapest is low. Hinting that a referendum on the project could be the end of it. Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Sarah McCammon..

"Sean Mark Macon is here. His new book is July 1914 Countdown to War and in his epilogue. He looks at what if what if Sarajevo had not happened? Would these men have maneuvered toured European catastrophe In any event? What if Franz Ferdinand had remained because he certainly was in place because he was certainly was a block to back told in Conrad's intentions to declare war on Serbia many times. Franz Ferdinand had had stopped their efforts to declare war and March on Belgrad many times. But in Germany, Germany's relationship to Vienna is hard to read. It was an alliance. But it was a strange alliance that Germans and their superiority of warfare and the number of men they have and how they were prepared to fight a two front war. Looked upon the Austrians as allies but weak allies to be manipulated Professor. Let's start with the question of the Kaiser. Right now, the Kaiser's on holiday when these events happen, he certainly is kept informed. He doesn't return to Berlin until the 28th does he want Does he bear responsibility for not stopping? What we know is going on in Vienna, could he have reached in there early and turned it off? It's quite possible that he could have the curious thing about the kind serious people can say all kinds of things about him because he put so much down on paper. They were the famous marginalia that if he would get these documents from the military men, the Admiralty or his diplomats, and he would scribble these comments all over them. And so for a century Because the Germans kept such good records, we've been able to kind of Pour through these margin, Alia and even some of the official documents and you can come up with almost any view of the kinds or you like he was belligerent. He was hotheaded. He was ultimately a pacifist. He was a coward. He was neurotic. In a way it sold through. I mean, it was all of these sex and he was a man of immense contradictions. Before the actual July crisis began, however, he was first and foremost, despite his reputation for being erratic. He was ultimately something of a voice for peace alongside France Ferdman that is the military men in Germany. They had been talking for years about the Russian threat, and so on. That Russia was getting stronger every year. We need to strike. They even have a discussion about this in the first Balkan war in December, 1912 the Kaiser said. Absolutely not. I'm certainly not gonna have us go to war because you know some problem that the Austrians are having the Serbia. The Kaiser was, if anything, even oddly pro Serbian by German standards. The assassination, really degeneration. That's said by the end of July. For the most part, he had begun to view things somewhat rationally. It wasn't in his early stages of kind of outrage from the assassination that he did authorize this so called blank check. That is that Germany would offer support for Austria. Get in whatever she did against Serbia By the end of the month, though he had begun to have second thoughts about this, especially after is we were discussing earlier in the program. He actually read Serbia's reply to the ultimatum, which, while not by any means and unambiguous acceptance, was fairly conciliatory on many points theme kind. You're actually wanted them. Intervene and to mediate in Vienna to mediate some sort of settlement where the service would be forced to give way and possibly endure some humiliating occupation of Belgrade with the Austrians might have to back down on some of the points, too. What happened then was actually somewhat contingent because The kinds of actually gave these instructions. And as I was saying earlier in the program, his chance for bet mom undermined him. But some of it was also simply because the kind of there was not a man who was in the habit of using the telephone, and so his instructions were actually sent by private courier. So it took them over an hour to get to Berlin before they could be sent to Vienna, and even then, because he thought they were so sensitive. He wanted them to be sent essentially again, by way of the males. Just say not by telegraph. So the kinds of didn't realize the urgency because he had just been told the Austrians were not going to actually declare war for another two weeks. Some of it was a pure accident, but as far as his intentions I do think that the kinds of with the so called hold on Belgrade initiative towards the end of the month. I do think the kind sir would have white to mediate some kind of a settlement. When he was undermined part with by accident, partly by timing, partly by his own chancellor. And then there was a lot of undermining simply because what they're told was up to in Vienna. You know that is it, Bear told basically gave the world instead of complete, which undermine any possible diplomatic initiative. The determines would have wanted to pursue just quickly here, Shawn because I want to move on to France and Russia. Bat men, the the chancellor and Yongle, the state secretary. They conspire it one point to maneuver the Kaiser. Are they guilty of that? Does he know he's being maneuvered by them? The 28th in the 29th. We just have a minute, Sean. I think that's right. If the chancellor and part of me the only thing I've seen Bet Mom's defense is that once he realized the policy at dawn wall, he did offer to resign. The Kaiser is, in a sense, the Kaiser's worst act of the entire week was probably not to accept the resignation of the chancellor. You know, he actually put it Very colorfully. You know, you said you've cooked this broth and now you're going to eat it. You know, that is you're going to deal with this policy that you've unleashed, even though the Kaiser himself enough to unleash it now, bet Mom knowing it was sunset Impossible Policy dilemma. He was in a difficult situation, but yes, he absolutely did try to manipulate the Kaiser s O did ya cow? Although he was really, I think more in the back seat. I think it was the chance for her really was driving policy and on the 28th. When Vienna does declare war on Serbia doesn't do anything about it because their armies not mobilized until the middle of August. Once that passes, we can say that the Kaiser and Bettman and Yago at that point were plunged into a situation that they could have turned off. Is that fair to say they could have turned it off after After the declaration of war by Austria. Well, they did try. In fact, Bittman tried to turn it off even after the declaration of war. By the time he got these messages through to Vienna, though they had to some extent become overtaken by events. All right, the Austrians had said Stop paying attention will turn to events. They were really trapped. By that point, there was very little the Germans could do to slow down. The mechanism will will turn to events in Petersburg next because France and Russia are on top of a place to look for fresh opinions off who's at fault? The Germans, The Serbians and the Austrians is certainly accused. What about the French and the Russians? I'm John Bachelor. This is the John back position..

"Aid because they're aligned and France will come in on Russia's side and Germany and Austria will be isolated and they will have to seek terms all right. That's what Russia thinks They start preparation for war. At this point, I want to stay with that month. Badman knows that the Austrians have made him have made cereal mistake's here. They've threatened war without being able to do anything until the middle of August, which is the worst of all worlds. Fine, But badman deceives the Kaiser. If I follow your book correctly, the Kaiser Kaiser returns on the 27th. Monday. The 27th the 26th on Sunday. Everybody knows the terms of what's going on in Moscow. The Russians are preparing for secretly. In other words, they're doing exactly what would instigate the Germans to panic. The Kaiser returns. On Monday. He beckons Bettman and multi, I think other ya go had to be there. Also, he beckons them to Potsdam, and he says, What's going on? They tell him but they don't tell him the whole story. They don't tell him that the Serbian note is concessionary that the Serbians are ready to make a deal. They deny the Kaiser this information. Why I condemn belt A Bettman. Unless there's a reason for denying the Kaiser Well, the only explanation which would execute eight were to some extent again, the you know, get death Mom off the hook. So to speak. If you're talking about the 27th of July is that he didn't have the full picture that some of the really disturbing bits of news that only started coming in during the day, and he didn't have the full picture. On the other hand, it is clear. He did deliberately withhold the text of Serbia's your plot. Now this reply in and of itself was actually of course, quite ambiguous. It was made to sound as conciliatory as possible. But if you actually read it line by line, you can see that at times with the Serbs are actually saying is not. We regret having done a but rather, we regret being accused of having done a day, in fact, made it sound as conciliatory as possible. But they made sure to reject it least one of the points of the ultimatum unambiguously so that the kinds of when he reads it finally, and this is it's withheld from them all for the day on the 27th, in part because Bettman, who self apparently has not read the text. The kinds of doesn't finally read it them because they don't give it to him until after he's going to pet. Basically, he doesn't finally read it until after he's gone for his morning ride in the morning of the 28 when he reads it. Again. I think he's he's somewhat falling for the Serbian manipulation. But again he response. Probably many reasonable people would because I'm reading this. Well, that sounds conciliatory. In fact, it sounds like this serves you no want some kind of a deal. Enter than the kind he says. Look, you know, we should get the Austrians to negotiate. You know, Best mom at this point in time doesn't want to negotiate. And so he actually waters down the Kaiser's proposal in historical shorthand. This is the diplomatic initiative referred to is the holes in Belgrade. The idea being that maybe the Austrians good stage a kind of Theatrical occupation of the capital because it's just right on the Austrian border. Just don't sit the river and then they can negotiate some sort of a face saving compromise. I'm speaking, however, the key terms the kinds are actually wanted them to back down on some of the points of the ultimatum. Where is the way that month that they would not have to sew? People literally undermined the Kaiser's own peace initiative? I'm speaking with Professor Sean MCM ikan July 1914 is the book. Countdown to war are Jewel to study these critical days of July 1914 because it breaks Europe apart, and it's still not put back together. It leads to the mass murders of the 20th century.

Serbia, Montenegro expel each other's ambassadors
"Neighboring countries expelling each other's ambassadors is not normally the prelude to anything good so montenegro. Booting out serbia's ambassador. On saturday with belgrade responding in kind raised alarm bells in the balkans which is the way of alarm bells in the balkans raised alarm bells elsewhere but serbia has now decided against declaring montenegro ambassador persona non grata amid much talk of goodwill between neighbors. So what is behind this spat and is serbia's man in pod. Grits still packing his bags. Well let's get the latest from our man in the balkans delaunay guy. Montenegro kicked this off by throwing out. Serbia's ambassador so let's start there. What had serbia's ambassador done to upset them. He said what they thought the provocative things about the notion of the montenigrin state. And he's like saying they sort of things and he said them once too often it would seem his most recent touch rent so this is a guy called vladimir bolshevik. Choose serbia's man. In montenegro he described this is the raw the flowery way that they not oppressive poverty. That the decision by montenegro authorities in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine to unify with serbia was a liberation and a free expression of people's will to unite with fraternal serbia Now the one thousand nine hundred union of montenegro with the what was then the kingdom of serbs croats and slovenes clue. There's no space for montenegro. In the name of that particular state Has not ever gone down. Well in history with a certain section of people montenegro Least of all those who say that we are an independent state became independent and twenty six and are larger neighbours. Should stop meddling in our as i mean. This is not terrifically. Diplomatic behavior from an ambassador. Was he going anywhere with this. Or was this the consequence of having perhaps over enjoyed one or two receptions. I couldn't possibly say on this. There's a lot of very undiplomatic behavior in this neighborhood. The those one diplomat in in he used to boast about spearheading a digital diplomacy initiative and this digital diplomacy initiative seem to entirely consist of insulting serbia on twitter. So that's that's the level of things. Here and keen. Listeners may have noted that in the past year relations between serbia and montenegro have been a little bit more tense than the normal in large part because of the montenegrin presidents decision to to launch an attack on the serbian orthodox church montenegro. He lived to regret this decision when his party. Then lost the parliamentary election in august. But this this rows being going on all year and the being little pokes and nichols and needles Going backwards and forwards between the two sides. Serbia as i read it has now currently given the montenigrin representative in belgrade. A reprieve at which point. I think we do need to give it up for the montenegrin ambassadors name. How can you refuse. A man called tarzan milosevic willing to in any religion be wrong. Any relation to any relation to either taza and milosevic is what i'm asking. I didn't think so. And this is not unusual. Balkan name by the way so. He's got very unusual parents. All these parents who thought that their son would go on to do unusual things which in some ways he has. I mean serving is montenegro. Ambassador to belgrade is something that wouldn't have been on their minds. Perhaps when taunton was A came into the world as some sixty years ago say but anyway He's got his reprieve. It would seem launch because of serbia's president alexandrovich There was a press conference in belgrade on sunday evening. At which prime minister. John boehner delivered. The word from the president's office said he decided the some things are more important than diplomatic protocol and he would extend the hand of fraternal friendship To montenegro which bearing on everything that's gone before was a little bit ironic. So is this actually going anywhere. This wanna are poised for a new era of rancor between serbia and montenegro or is this more one of your teacup the storms. There's actually something going on behind the scenes. Which is we're bound to have. A new government installed in montenegro. So i mentioned the election in august. We the government hasn't been installed yet. It's due to be installed tomorrow and this new government is fairly serbia friendly. It's it's a funny old coalition. The largest party of which is very friendly towards serbia and russia and they've accused the outgoing administration which is dominated by miller djukanovic. Even though he's the president and not the prime minister of stirring the pump basically they're saying the trying to increase divisions within montenegro society between ethnic serbs and montenegrins and with neighboring serbia before they got booted out of government formerly Tomorrow and i think that's quite a reasonable analysis.

Aircraft Delivery Founder Steve Giordano (Co-Founder and Managing Director of Jet Test & Transport)
"But I started jet test. Kind of as a hobby while I was at allegiant early on even when I was based in Vegas. The idea and what does it do? Well so I first and foremost at the time jet test didn't exist. I just blind the line flying de Moines and flying to Bellingham Washington and Fargo and might not you know in the MD eighty and I was flying with this is what I was photos the beginning I was flying with the captain and he said you know we hit it off and he said Hey this weekend I'm burying a D. C. Nine thirty over to Belgrade Serbia and I could use I could use an F. O. and I was like Yeah County, and I've got a passport and I get paid. was. Very. Done for for I L F, C at the time. I don't as they don't remember it could have been. We did a lot for C. we still do for air cap, which is now let's see but I don't remember who the customer was, but we were basically. So he was like a like a freelance. Highlight. For Higher. He just went in and jobs and I had no idea that existed and so it was an opportunity for me someone that just loves to travel I had never really had the experience of flying internationally besides Mexico and Canada and stuff. So of course, I jumped on that opportunity and I I still remember that whole trip like like it happened yesterday because it was my first time flying across the ocean. Sure. It was show. You. How long were you gone from the time started to the time you returned home. I think it was probably done about three or four days. So we got over there, and then of course, we hung out that we hung out for a day. You know nowadays we get well forget it. I, mean cove it makes it impossible to even leave the airport for the most part, but that's another story. But you know at the time. Even, we're so busy we we generally move from trip, but at that point in time, I had never been to Eastern Europe and I had gone wants to Ireland and wants to Germany as you know as a as a team but. Anyway. It was it was awesome. We walked around drink beer and had good food at the restaurants and and it was just it was just such a cool experience that the first thing that I did when I got back with say what's next? When can I do this again? And it turned into, you know I was I was I made myself available and I was ferrying airplanes mostly DC nine, some dash eight, some MD eighties because that was all I was typed on. And I was doing a trip every couple of months and whether it was domestic ferry you know or flying over to Asia. Started kind of doing the same thing as him and. What happened from there is you know I started getting type ratings I just I wanted to do it more and I wanted to make myself available on more more equipment. So the first thing I did was I went out and bought a seven thirty seven type. Crossed when you did it. I think it cost about eight nine thousand bucks. Yeah. It's really almost about the same as it costs today but you know I did it in an old seven, thirty, seven, two, hundred simulator which you can't find nowadays right And then and then I flew right seat on a lot of ferry flights until I got the experience and the confidence to to
Xbox Series S and X preview
"All Right Tom. You have just like dummy xbox at your house, but what is going on? You just plastic shells. He's just making videos with like should I tell you the story of week? So. They arrived on. Monday morning and like like I'm grumpy wouldn't say old berm like it and I knew phone and we get new laptop and he does know me I, know that sounds like. And and I'm like I mean a really fortunate position. But like once you've seen so much stuff once visited location. So many times he just doesn't. It's not exciting, right? So He's very me to get sight about technology but like Jane genuinely when opened up the series was like, wow, this is. Not. Excited by a brand new laptop with the latest graphics card a super fast processor and a ton of Ram Beautiful Four K. screed but you were excited by a plastic dummy box of the xbox series. And I don't know why. But it was late is is a deny it sounds really like fan boil some. It sounds like he was like Christmas I was like Oh this is so. Because I haven't seen it before. And I knew other people hadn't seen before. So is an element of that but it was also just like Michael being so small like how did how did they do this? That was my immediate thing was like how like will? It right. They haven't told me anything about it at this point. So they just sent me these damn dummy units and I was just like. BSO The dummy units arrived they respond to be I mean there was supposed to be announcing this thing next week. So there's going to be a bunch of like. Honey. Technical. In Belgrade, sessions where briefings for the press, so they give us the full information so that we'd have our goals like informative for people to read. That's great involved because like it just means that I can explain things better. readers get better pitcher and but then it leaked. So I woke up I can't even remember which day it leaked because it's just been such a week. But it leads at some point. Jews Wednesday. Up, and I was like Oh God like zoo happen, and then like that will C- kick Mike soft intellect panic mode we need to announce everything because everything's leaked. So they like just dumped the whole thing. The experts pricing everything. This is a trend because Google does this now and the thing leaks that just like Oh. Yeah. Okay. That's Just did it with the wing? Yeah. Well, I mean L. L G announces every single practice makes fifty times so. Count. But it's a pattern. We might as well, just announce it. We're done I think I think with Marxist cases that I've been. Flight. Will to years. Alongside bunch of reposes will. But like I think for them, it was like they needed to explain his fingers like the thing suspending. Well, this is the experts series S. His basically a smaller more budget friendly and and let's say less performance. Experts console than the bigger experts series X, which I'm sure most people listening to this probably familiar with Bono and it's basically designed for fourteen Philippi gaming. So like that's I, mean I'd say the vast majority of Mona's out there today that people gaming on the moment. East acton on the TV's and stuff but like this is a pretty good. Sweets book fully Philippi right now, spy from the PC side and. It's like a good talk. And they basically promising a symbol of architecture and all of the next gen premiums from the series. Excellent. CPU cloud under two hundred megahertz. The thing I care about is, does it have the the fast d at the series extras? Yeah. It does but it's five hundred, twelve storage instead of one terabyte. So there are no right. There's no Dr. Discloses all digital. Is Two hundred, ninety nine buffs, which is, which is good. I think it's like that's a pretty impressive for us but this is obviously the the the drawbacks to it. No disks will do diesel prices. If Games are typically higher yields, he can't use use games I think a lot to see Sonia my soul. In some way I'd love to just say my district sorted signing just digitize as well. I think we spoke about that on the way I look at like this series s is I think he's great life. If you kid you place fort like twenty, four, seven in bed, remove ten ADP TV because you haven't spent. Two Thousand Bucks on the Keio lead for them. Surprisingly. Like. I think I. Think it's great for that sold market like having. By that for Free Hundred Bucks and they get the new CPU the new ESA stays below times and the performance overall will be like way better than expos one. Like it just depends how it compares to the to the series x I. Think like they're doing some upscaling stuff for four K. if you really want to touch, it's a four K.. By Donna, how good that's going to be. That misses the point like. Different market. But what is the market for fourteen forty game I mean When you say monitors get it but most people with fourteen forty P monitors plugging PC's into them not consoles I is fourteen forty pm out. So I think the market is really ten API. which which is the TV's. Still turn EP like I would probably imagine the forty percent Stilton apr there at the moment. And I think that goes wildly up when you look at bedrooms and like kids rooms like where you're buying a typically smaller TV and you're not gonNA get e can't even by like a smaller lighter the twenty. Shit Four. K. TV. It's just they just don't exist. Although maybe they do but like. Just don't sell volume and I think that that's the market. That's the market ICS. Definitely. Going for like the MOMS and the POPs the shopping around at Christmas and they want to get their gear console they want to get something this noon and stuff, and these things only gonNA come down in price. So to me the market for the series S is. Why definitely have to buy a playstation because I want to get those games and if Playstation maybe I'll get the best one because I don't know what's going on the cheaper one about they're going to do there. And so if I've done that I still kind of want an xbox because I'm thinking about getting this Xbox game pass thing because he all these games on it. But I don't want to have to big ass consuls my living room saw the the cheaper xbox. I'll get the cheaper xbox to play Xbox Game Pass Games, and then I'll get the more expensive PSI to be like my main console that I get like my kick ass four K. stuff on it is. So blindingly clear which one of you has a child in which one doesn't. Just putting. Very obvious. How your perspectives shifted. Like I would say game passes Tom to your point you the game passes the thing here right? Like, yeah. If this is a Fox for your second TV or your kids TV, then what you need is a cloud gaming service. They can address all the xboxes right. And if you don't have a disk, doesn't matter because all the Games on the cloud anyway and you're just moving licenses around and maybe you're going to get to to streaming games in this thing, will be able to stream the games right like. You kinda see where they're going is these are just sort of client units for an xbox service with different GPS. Yeah. Exactly. It's different. Slight different economic you a bunch of specs and people who've been tweet me thousand times a minute this week. But you can argue a bunch of stuff to the essential differences between the two is the once targeting Larry's Lucien Melissa's and TV's and the EVA's talkative. Okay. Like that. That's that's basically the basic gist of the if you were really simplifier. And I think the cheap one is really gonNA appealed to the experts getting pulse market. Like that. Is Probably the best for you and gave me right now like I. Think it's very. Apple, arcade. Lately, just added a play or that it didn't add it to base expos game policies to the almost see have to you have to pay the all of the xbox names are bad and confusing. And then there's the P. C. There's the version that you can also play it on PC, which now costs more, right yes. Let's give me ten bucks a month by feel like that's I mean if you experts came all that covers you on anyway. So feel like you just. Denies. People go for the old anyway I think. So you've got the the series as the that will call the ten ADP model because I think it's functionally what it is even yeah basically forty nine. To Ninety nine, the series x, which is the four K. high refresh rate. Refrigerator refrigerator model. Model model is four ninety nine, which is actually still very aggressive and my mind and just based on what can do and then experts expensive. The Ninja xbox Game Pass Ultimate Yep is twenty five bucks a month in. Fifteen a month. But if you pay more and then you get a box out of it to write for twenty four months, you you you pay the subsidize. It's like a phone plan. Basically you get you pay a little bit more and then you a paying down your hardware and installments and it's basic. Tech Industry only has one business model which is. And T. in two, thousand and four. Yeah. But right. But that's a killer deal right that she ended up paying less over the twenty four months than you would. If you bought them separately right when you can get either right for the Yup can get the X. which I think is four, nine, nine a month I think. Five month or twenty five, the S. I I see that I'm like I'm just GonNa. I'm just GONNA, X.. Whatever like I am going to do the dumb starbucks, which is it's three coffees Erlich whatever. AM. And that is just a brilliant move for Microsoft, right? Yeah. Basically make an expensive thing seemed cheap even as maybe in the end, it's only slightly cheaper than buying everything out right?
Civil Rights Activist, Patricia Stephens Due
"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is encyclopedia will Manica. All month we're talking about activists. Women who stood up against injustice and four a better world. Today we're talking about an American civil rights activist whose work began as a student and extended throughout her life and beyond. She was one of the leaders of the sit in and Jalen movements continuing to fight for a more just society even when faced with serious harm. According to The New York Times her FBI file was over four hundred pages long. Let's talk about Patricia Stevens do. Patricia Gloria Stevens was born on December ninth nineteen, thirty, nine fifteen months after her sister Priscilla who would go on to be partner in many organizing efforts. Patricia was the second of three kids born to Lottie Mae Powell Stevens, and Horace Walter Stevens. The Stevens family lived in Belgrade Florida for most Patricia Youth. By the time she was thirteen years old Patricia was very aware of the discrimination she faced for being black and was ready to protest. She and her sister refused to go to the designated colored window at their local dairy queen. Instead, they stood in line for the window marked whites only. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, seven Patricia started school at Florida Am University. Two years later in Nineteen fifty-nine Patricia and Priscila attended a workshop put on by the Congress of racial equality or core on nonviolent civil disobedience. Patricia then started a local chapter of the organization in order to continue the work, she tried to tackle it just thirteen years old integration. The following year on February. Twentieth Nineteen Sixty Patricia, her sister, and some other students sat down at a whites only lunch counter at a Woolworth Tallahassee and refused to get up until they were served. Nineteen days earlier, four guys sat down at a similar lunch counter in Greensboro North Carolina officially kicking off. Since movement across the South Patricia and ten of her peers were arrested rather than paying three hundred dollar Fine Patricia and. Out Forty nine days in jail. Their determination to serve their time as a statement became a norm when others were arrested and charged on fairly. Patricia leadership and courage caught the attention of people around the country support of the cause including Jackie Robinson Eleanor Roosevelt Harry Belafonte, and James. Baldwin. Dr Martin. Luther King. Junior. Sent the sisters telegram that said. Going to jail for a righteous cause as a badge of honor and a symbol of dignity. After she was finally released, Patricia continued the fight to change her city and country. One of her fellow activists was a man named John D do junior. He was law school at Florida Am University. The two got married in nineteen, sixty three and would go on to have three children together for their honeymoon Patricia and John went to the march on Washington and heard Dr King's I have a dream speech. The following year in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, Patricia took on a new role in corps. She served as field secretary for a voter education and Registration Project in North Florida under her leadership. program. More. Voters than any other regional program in the south. Patricia also worked to improve the lives of workers, the poor and other underserved populations in the US. But her activism took a physical toll on her. After being hit in the face by a can of tear gas, Patricia is were injured and she was forced to wear dark glasses for the rest of her life in nineteen sixty, seven, ten years after she enrolled. Patricia graduated from Florida Am. University it took her all of a decade to get her degree because she spent periods of time traveling around the US to rally energy behind the civil rights movement. She was also suspended multiple times by the
Serbia and Kosovo normalize economic ties in U.S.-brokered deal
"Have agreed to normalize economic ties is part of a U. S brokered talks that include Belgrade, No grade moving its Israeli Embassy to Jerusalem. And mutual recognition between Israel and Kosovo. At the two days of meetings with Trump Administration officials, the Serbian President Alexander Alexandra Vacek, and Kosovo's Prime Minister Abdullah Ho T. Agreed to cooperate on a range of economic funds to attract investments and create jobs announcement provided Trump. They should've written President Trump with a diplomatic, went ahead of the November presidential election and furthers his administration's pushed to improve Israel's international standing. That's the
Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track
"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.
Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings. He's executive director of the Australian strategic pulsing suit by skill professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Melissa Commonly Tyler. She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

The Chess Grandmasters Extreme Workout
"I. How did you get on the chess? Beat in the first place? So I get really interested in these really need sports that. People are super invested in Ashwari. Kumar is an international features writer for Espn Lake if you're going to which. Of People Are Watching these chess tournaments that you wouldn't even know where that's happening in. Iceland. Or Finland, and so I had this curiosity so I was thinking so Bobby Fisher was such a huge part of chests in the US what Ron Labor is tennis. What Jack Nicklaus's to golf? That's what Bobby Fischer is to chess. Bobby Fisher of the United States will finally meet Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union in Belgrade Yugoslavia, but the chess championship of the world plus a purse of one, hundred, thirty, eight, thousand five hundred dollars, the richest prize for a head-to-head confrontation in any sport, but boxing. So who is the next Bobby Fisher? So I went to Saint Louis last year to sort of figure out what is going on in the chess world, so saint Louis has sort of become this chess capital of the country. Let's start with the basics here. What is a chess grandmaster? And what does it take to become one? Usually what happens? Is this International Chess Federation F. And they have this point systems so chessplayers. Lead different tournaments in accumulate these spines that. Gets them to a certain level of expertise, and they are then title the grandmaster, which is in fact, the highest I do that. A chess player can be awarded by International Chess Federation usually these. Players between the age of ten and fourteen, and so they go through these rigorous tournaments one after the other parents take them all over the world. And the get the title by around thirteen fourteen, and then they start to perfect the art of being perfect, just player. So you mentioned Bobby Fisher. Who is probably the most famous chess player all time? Actually is definitely the most famous chess player of all time. Who are the stars of the field today? The poster by of chess is at the moment Magnus Carlsen. Calzon is the best in the world. The youngest number one ever and no one can explain to you how he does what he does. It seems to come from another world, which is why he's become known as the Mozart of chess. He's from Norway. He sort of had this. Has this bad boy live to him? He's like interesting. He'll drop these nuggets about other players. You make jokes about his opponents. He talks trash social chicken. How do you not? He's GonNa do the same. Yeah the lack of comas is astounding. And quite disappointing. He talks acts. Yeah for sure sorta like that kind of Worcester wise. He's called the golden boy of chess. And then this. Is. Bobby Ana crew art, there's this Chinese grandmaster Ding Laren and then USA's Wesley so and Kara Nakimora. Really Good Armenia has live on Romanian so these are some of like the famous players at the moment that go up against each other all the time. So I the grandmaster that you decided to focus on with your story, the one who lives in Saint Louis is actually Italian. His name is Fabiano Caruana. Who is in? How did he get here? Fabiano Caruana is the number two seed in the world. He's an Italian American chess grandmaster. He became a grandmaster at fourteen years of age, fourteen years, eleven, months, and twenty eight to be exact, and he at that time was the youngest grandmaster in the history of Italy in the United States. E was sort of beg to be the next big thing in in US chess and he came back now. He has an apartment in Saint Louis. He lives there and he sort of boot. BOOT his life from scratch, and he was never like the big personality like Norris Magnus columnist. He's the guy that will is very chill loves video games and let us work to the talk to his justice stories about that call in the next Bobby Fisher like the next big thing. He's the one person that can actually dig down. Magnus, Carlsen in the world championship and become the next world champion. So what does? Chess match in a grand masters tournament. Actually look like. How does it play out? Okay so two grandmasters shake each other's hands. sit down across from each other is chessboard. This o'clock next to them that the are constantly looking at. This goes on for at least six hours right every day, and so during these six hours, the brain has to have most oxygen supply. Which means your heart is functioning three times faster than on any given. And because of that sustained higher blood pressure, and sustained higher level of activity by the heart and the rain, the body goes through intense physical. Energy lost during. A chess game that lasts six to seven to sometimes eat hours said.
Novak Djokovic and the Adria Tour Antics
"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated tennis podcast hope everyone is well healthy wearing a mask not at a Belgrade disco topless, which I suppose is where we ought to start Jamie I'm glad you're you're with me today. How's everything in your world? It is good I. AM also not in a Belgrade club dancing around in close quarters. Shouting. Indoors So, that's a win I. You know I had wanted to do A. Normal podcast. We're going to talk to Donald Dell longtime agent. He had some very interesting thoughts about how to merge the ATP and the WPA we were GonNA talk about. The plan for the US Open and tennis getting back in there some events this week. We were talking about the Patrick. marauded lose event, and the Charleston ended in of course everything blew up metaphorically and I. Guess You could say in a sense literally with news from from the Balkans this weekend which we probably timestamped us, we are speaking on. What is today Wednesday morning the right as cracked. So we are seventy two hours into this Kindly, call it a narrative I spoken a lot about this. I've written about this I will say before we can talk. Specifics I'm very surprised at the stem, and this is really world news. I mean I was getting calls. From Aljazeera the BBC and then I just Mary. Carillo is on MSNBC Today. Mean is really become much more than tennis story. For better worse I would argue worse, but this really has been. The kind of story had ripples beyond the the sport and beyond sports period I think a lot of people are. Sort of trying to figure out how we eat back to normal I think we're trying to see I think we're starting to see some real. Sort of disparities in countries, and even here in the United States with how this is not only being managed, and not only with the data says, but just in terms of philosophy, so I think this is the story of really found its way into into a much broader story, and this has become absolutely world news. I mean this is as big as a ten stories we've had since there's been a match and I guess what why don't we just start there? I, mean Jamie. Let's start with. Top Line Impressions of the Adria Tour Novak Djokovic in the last seventy two hours. Yeah you're right to say that tennis exhibitions don't normally get this much press. I think it's always a funny thing with antennas. When people you know who aren't as familiar with the sport, they see results from from an Axa, whether it's early in the year late in the year, and you know somebody, beat, someone, and most people just sort of shrug it off, but it's as you said really interesting to see how much this has really gone across the world. World and everyone is talking about it and rightfully, so because this is a big issue in I think it was from the Gecko, when we started to see the photos and the videos of everything that was happening between the hugging and everything that was happening on the court, and then of course everything that was happening all off the court. All of those images in those photos are really going to be the mark of this event of this tournament. And jovovich whether or not he deserves all of the blame or not will also be the face of this issue for a long time coming he is the organizer of this event of course, and also the oldest in terms of the players that was there and for me. That was something that you know. He really needed to use his his advantage, and the the younger players thereof and born Cora and others even Dmitrov for what it's worth. You know are are younger than him. They look up to him and for him to invite these players to come to this tournament in for him to organize this in the way that he did end to have the results that we had is just It's not great, and I wish that the best tennis player you know the number one in the world right now had thought a little bit more about how he was exposing all these people. It's unsafe conditions and took a little bit more time to think about how what the results and the repercussions of this could have been. Yeah I mean I think no-one covered themselves in glory. I mean there's already been a lot of finger. Pointing joke of its father have having moved on from from fettered. Baby is now pointing fingers at Dmitrov as the culprit, I mean this is just ugly stuff I. Mean I think we ought to pause here in and say we do hope everyone makes. A speedy and easy recovery as as nick, curious I wrote. Nick curious turned into the the Wiseman of tennis Munich. curios thoughts on all of this have been. A lot more reasonable and responsible than anyone else's and the nick curious very rightly says this virus is not a joke, so. Go further. Let's be clear. We hope everybody makes a a quick recovery from virus that we know you know. Six figures over is can be fatal. having said all that I think I mean it's sort of interesting in the grand scheme of things, people who are casual fans or not even sports fans at all. This is hubris recklessness, and here's this athlete who somehow has been living in. Sick enough bubble so that he doesn't realize it. You can pass this on other people and hey. Viruses are really contagious and things like masks really work
Djokovic Has Coronavirus
"We'll fake. He said we might be back with an emergency podcast just amid twenty four hours after according to last one and back, we are because there have been developments in. The covid nineteen crisis that's been developing on the Adra tool. For probably over the course of the past two weeks, but is only presented itself to us over the past few days. We've obviously been following an extremely closely. We're expecting a statement from the world number one and one of the organizers of the Adra Tool. Novak Djokovic today and we have had the statement. In fact, we've had to statements from the world number one. Read you the first one just now. It starts off by confirming that Djokovic has indeed tested positive for Covid nineteen immediately upon his arrival in Belgrade he was tested along with members of his family and his team He wasn't showing any symptoms, and he says that his result is positive as his wife Yelena. Both tested negative. He goes onto. Say Everything we did. In the past month we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. All Tournament meant to unite and share message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region. The tool has been designed to help both established and up and coming tennis players from Southeastern Europe to gain access to some competitive tennis while the various tools are on hold due to the covid nineteen situation. It was all born with philanthropic idea to direct all raised funds towards people in need, and it warmed my heart to see how everybody strongly responded to this. We organized the tournament at the moment. The crisis has weakened believing that the conditions for hosting the tool had been met. Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with i. am hoping things will ease with time, so we can resume lives the way they were. I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection. I hope that it will not complicate anyone's health situation, and that everyone will be fine. I will remain in self-isolation for the next fourteen days and repeat the test. In five days now, already going to be a busy day today for we'll certainly for the British tennis media because it was the first day of. If Jamie Murray event the battle of the Brits. But obviously with this huge kind of. Story transcending the sport developing It's an even busier day. So what does I'm? Briggs want to nine PM. He wants a message David Law, saying Don't close your laptop to seen Simon. Join a common. The tennis podcast Hello Simon. We, can he Simon? As a slightly weary voice, but we're. We're very glad to have the house he day been. Well, actually I. Play tennis this morning Mitch was. Day because in. About, one o'clock PM. statement dropped in just actually almost as the first big hit in. What you might describe elite tennis in the UK in Twenty twenty. Almost simultaneously as Jamie Murray went on colts. Who Doubles match? The statement jobs and the news course navy tested positive. I. Mean The I think if you're talking about the address. It wasn't as big a deal today. The positive tests were concerning But the how many do we hereby stay ahead? Five hadn't made by the end of the end of the day and I will on Sunday night. so today it felt like a continuation rather than being quite the bombshell yesterday when. Magi my busiest every day on twitter. What were your initial reactions were? It's joke Richard subsequently released a second statement on instagram tonight, which we will come onto. But what were your reactions when that first statement came out and how? Much, did it. Differ or not from from what you were expecting from him, not in terms of necessarily the results of the test, but As somebody responsible for that tour in that tournament, his sort of degree if the responsibility is prepared to take etc.. Yeah well I mean. There was a sort of Was a source of slight cheesed-off tone to it wasn't at the. He was sort of disappointed that we hadn't seen his pure intentions. For what they were a? and. Almost implication that that should have been enough to satisfy. On, lookers than indeed know the mysterious workings of the virus, and it was a bit of a mystery that has not recognized his pure intentions for the. Positives that they were. So, he kind of sounded a little bit. Petulant in the first statement, and then by the time the second one came out, he was a lot more. Apologetic fellow somebody might have had it worse.
A Tennis Star Catches COVID-19
"Welcome the no challenges remaining. It is Sunday. June twenty first twenty, twenty I am Ben Rothenberg I was working on posting are editing an episode that I recorded a couple days ago with buddies and frequent guests, this show remobilize into all and Louisa Thomas also this episode for the beginning of it. round table talking about the open their plans etcetera etcetera. Then a couple less than an hour ago, there was a posted popped up. I think I dream and remained Toumani. Join me again hello. Hello. Irene was the first one is. If I saw a post, this poster came up on your instagram feed, and can you describe what you saw instagram? Basically posted a photo of himself with a mask, announcing that he is back in Monaco and tested positive for covid nineteen an he apologized for possibly endangering others so yeah, it was him basically disclosing that he has positive, and as we know agree, gorgeous got back from Croatia where he was playing in the Adria tour and a couple of days before that he was playing in Belgrade as well, so he's playing Novak store, and yeah, and we mentioned that obviously on the podcast we recorded two days ago. I it it should be noted that we've seen many patriots of Griego over the past couple of weeks. But that's the first pitcher. We've seen what I'm wearing a mosque. Stu Point to money no I think. Yeah, so this is sort of tenses. Thing hopefully it get to a Rudy Gobert moment in tennis where Gregoire realized I have nothing fallen close attention, paying close attention to the Adria tour, but grew on court yesterday a Saturday in Croatia playing a match inside our Croatia as part of this Adria series traveling around the Balkans he was in. Serbia and we talked about this. A bunch on the show and I think I will probably still. Post the show recorded before, but I feel like this will change the tenor of its I want to post these. Get this one up I throw show that we are connected to reality more than maybe the other episode from two days ago because I think as Louisa, early people say on the show like. In these times a lock change short period of time, this is obviously a big moment for tennis.

Quote Unquote was Georgia Djokovic of ex brother. It was being held in Belgrade and a few other planned stops around the Balkans They just actually after the news of Dmitrov positive test. They just can't sold the final match of today's session in. Montenegro which was supposed to host next weekend had already said thanks, but no thanks to Adria tour canceled their leg of the event. We sort of imagined Asia tour, which was an event. Whichever one you twenty? How about you described? He described what what we saw because he posted a bunch of photos. From recent days what Adrian Tour Bend like the got people concerned something this. Business was sending. The optics are not good. Let's put it charitably that way.

Will these images that would be normal in normal times, but these aren't normal times, and it makes you cringe a bit. And so there there there's been tons of criticism and. Of course. Rich kind of. Received a lot of criticism for an we actually spoke. To US ball. And he said kind of that. He's aware of the criticism from the West. But you know what while things may be bad in the UK or the, us, it's not. It's not the same in Serbia. And, yeah, and for that reason you know people have been kind of reacting to that and reacting badly, and that's kind of where we. Can I add? They also had a kids day. That had a lot of kids. We've seen the photo of that as well and they've had a football match, and they've had a basketball match in Croatia. They went to a concert with Donovan John August the new version others the other day, and the thing is you have players who came from countries. Who aren't Serbia and Croatia in that? You have you have players someone like Gregoire? Who flew from the states, then winces Bulgaria, possibly also to Monaco. You also have such as Vera. Vera who's traveling from different places Sasha's also saddlebrook for quite a big portion of the quarantine time you have people traveling from different places, and they got off the plane, and you see the video of them getting off the plane and immediately hugging Novak, and immediately being welcomed people into walking around the no masks I don't understand how you can get a flight and already know that that person that person didn't have time to get tested, so that already was
