"I think this has been a really good flight so far and we will continue with more in just a minute. Welcome back everyone here. Er just enjoying some really good beer today. Oh becky george so for those of you just tuning in hello. We are doing a brewery takeover of north coast brewing company in fort bragg california. And now we're gonna turn the dial a little bit and go a little tart. We're talking about the tart. Cherry berliner vice coming in at four point one percent. Ab so michael. Jackson not a musician. He describes berlin white beer as having an insistent sparkle of freighter freeness in the nose. A sharp drive pallet any frisian of quenching sour acidity in the finish raising moonwalk. The north coast tart. Cherry berliner wise is made from michigan amount morrissey cherries. If i said that right Who's addition softens electic finish of the beer and brings it a spring time blush and what a great color. It is in comparison to what we've been drinking and you know his historically the the the bit beer or the rather than burr. I'm sorry the berliner vice rather would be would be served with you know some sort of a fruit is like a raspberry or what is the bringing one would would. And that's in this. That's because it was so lactic. Yeah to start with kind of just so that would round that off a little bit. I just has baby. It's not my phone yes please you. Were talking to him. How beautiful lake absolutely beautiful. It's beautiful to behold sorry. Can't see this you guys out there. But only because of the mike. Yeah because the my you. So they've A few very variants of their berliner vice Another did quince. And a couple of others maybe plum. I can't remember. But i think the tart cherry the tar this year's berlin advice from them and i think it's the best one honestly. I think in the michigan. Probably at least as far as america goes produces the best cherries the most varieties and the best quality. Yeah you hear a lot about washington state and those are good but iago. Yeah smell hippies here so light and refreshing in clean and perfect and so but. This is so approach approachable. Like i don't want people to think that. Oh it's pro-enterprise is going to be really tartly superstar. Now it's gentle it's there but it lake it warms you up like a good blanket. It's it's easy. It's it's stunning. And i still remember. When we've when it first came to this area we had a couple bottles and we went like gaga over it right and then we went to this one restaurant and we were talking about beer and they said oh well you know. There's something in the cooler that you need to see and it was the lone keg of this area. It was like such a crazy moment. I think we all just like cool. Andrew enrolled yeah. I'll tell you something you could do with this. Like if you're at a wedding reception or what not serve. It really really really cold and dispense it. In champagne flutes and people would just brave. They would've known speier toward store. I think you should turn even colder and make an indoor slushy to an alcoholic tart. Cherry slurpee and that would be fantastic. Give that to my grandson. Touch is a little quiet. If he's teething it'll be perfect. Productions is not endorse. Any of the american association does not sign off on. This recommendation was any trouble dad now. He's been quiet all night. He's going to be really cranking morning. It's just absolutely gorgeous absolutely gorgeous. Yeah i think it's probably one of the better berliner vice out there and and you know it's funny like everybody goes for goza like everybody's you know a lot. Most of the brewers are making goza when they do these kettle sours and everything. So it's it's interesting the the that they do the berliner vice but it makes sense considering that they're more into classic style is kind of like doing alantic instead of a kettle sour. Yeah yeah yeah. And it's they. They really are replicating a lot of these baseline styles. Yeah and they do them so well are they. Do they do i and again like no fuss. No muss and they pick the right ingredients and they make it grape. Well the tart. Cherry berliner weiss from north coast. We are going to reach a four a flight. Moving on we are now going to go to the prankster. This one comes in at seven point six percent. It's a belgian style. Golden ale bell jails represent the height of the brewer's art sophisticated brewing techniques. Yeast blends and unique flavoring elements have elevated the beers of belgium to the status enjoyed by whine in other countries priced.

You think that got him in an antique store phantom and the grandmother's house so that could be cram microbes grown in the. I've confessed entire north line. This is always been my least favorite really. Yeah it's a good beer you know for the style. It's just kind of average to me though yen. It really doesn't compete well with the your your belgian and your your your abbey ales that were you know kind of a precursors to this. Yeah well this is not necessarily one of the most popular styles anyway and then it's also one of the the ones where the ones that are made really. Well our mazing this this style air like if you go and you find one that's great it's gonna be like blow your mind. It's not big enough to be a golden strong. It's not hoppy and dry enough to be a triple a. Feel it's kind of inbetween. And and i would want it to go one direction or the other. It's not a golden straw. It's not at all it's kind of same ab as a triple. But it's just it's a little sweet. And i i would like a little more hopping hop bye. Dryness it's almost like an under attenuated.

Let's get back to the beer. You and i shared on this episode. Which by the way. It was kind of fun. We we switched it up there at the beginning. I i never get to say the part about why we drink. I think i say that occasionally on different episodes you know just like on wednesday episodes but you get to say like every time we get to interview somebody going to fund to a little bit there But on this episode. You and i enjoyed a fruited berlin vice And this is a beer by new grass brewing company What were your thoughts on this beer. Yeah so this. This one had mango pineapple and passion fruit in it. It was completely one hundred percent. Tropical like put a straw in this puppy and let me drink it out of a skull shaped a- glassware nec skull on the label. There's a school here. It kind of makes you think like hardcore tropical. I mean this this makes me Feel like this is something i would drink at a tiki bar right. That's the kind of this is and I i love that. Man like super fruity a lot of mango and pineapple in this one And we have passion. Fruit shines through to Just a great blending of those fruits made this one like truly excellent like this is. This is really good. I wasn't expecting it to be as this good. But i agree with you had tons of fruit so much fruit that actually the longer we let it sit here and a glasses like we kind of have to get a little swirl to reincorporate the fruit like the fruit almost like puree of it would kind of settle down towards the bottom and to some folks out there that might sound a little bit gross but to the hardcore craft beer fans other. You know what we're talking about and it was really good concentrated liquid gold. We'll all the gave a warning here to you on this. I don't know if you saw that on. The side of the candidate says warning highly fruited without pasteurization. They're just telling you to keep it refrigerated and drink it fresh but it did have a ton of fruit but at the same time. It's still had a good amount of carbonation which always impresses me anytime you're able to have like a thicker heavier fruited sour like this. A fruited berliner vice but then it still has that bubbliness to it's. There's something magical. There's something special about this of beer. And i'm glad that you and i got to enjoy this one on the show today do me to great beer. Great condo Those a lot of fun. Well that's going to do it for this episode for folks who want show notes.

Even if very well saddened just that you know maybe not all of us. It's a bit of a statement but you know most of us are carrying of some condition.

"To something that would work and Then i had to think about newborn screening panels and what they detect in what they don't in. Pompeii was one of those that wasn't commonly put on the newborn screening panel. At least a few years ago. When i was writing a book and then so i changed the whole thing to pompeii and then in some of my research i discovered that there is now enzyme replacement therapy for pompeii and i thought that changes everything again. I'm not rewriting this so then it hit me all. I had to do a setback. Ten years. i did notice that. And then i started googling i was like and it takes place in vermont. I was one newborn screening in right. Yes because i was like well. I'm not familiar with the vermont. Newborn screening i practicing connecticut And then went to school in new york. So that's what i'm used to. And i was like well. Maybe it's not on there. I'm going to have asked janice because you know. I'm gonna look at the details you know i'm going to be coming on because you know. Generally people write about what they know. So you know if you read john. Grisham book is books are always set in memphis or jack like somewhere in the south. That's what he knows and jodi pa- cold sets her books in new hampshire that area. Because that's what she knows so. I'm from new jersey. I could've said it here. But then it wouldn't have worked very the fact checking. It had to had to be legit. So the other thing i was thinking about during this was cure and ryan met with a fertility journey kausar. You mentioned that earlier. Part of their workup was carrier screening. That's very standard. If someone is having fertility treatments that all right let's cover the carrier screening that way if we find that a couple as a carrier of the same condition that there's risk to a pregnancy that they have the option of choosing embryos that didn't inherit that disorder. So i'm kind of thinking okay. They're carriers cutting came back negative. So how is it. They could have a child with an inherited. Genetic condition like where where is almost the loophole for lack of a better term in terms of like having that negative carrier screening. It's a fair question. And kira and ryan asked that question. As well and in fact highlighted the book goes like ryan. And i are on the same page here. Yeah he's saying maybe there's a lawsuit going on here. I think he's just reaching for anything that will help him cope with the situation but the fact of the matter is a carrier. Screening is not foolproof. And that's not necessarily because it has ever it's because it doesn't include everything we can't put everything. On carrier screening panel there are thousands of different disorders so much like each year. A group of scientists decides which particular flu viruses should be included in a a flu vaccine. It's kind of the same thing except that it doesn't change too much year to year. But you know the ones that are deemed more common and severe. As newborn illnesses go are the ones that are included in their thousands of different ones so deciding what to do take some finesse. So.

"Book your console today with brand. We fast forward to as we can saying. Baby brooke has failure to thrive which is a kind of general term. What are some of the signs or symptoms when a bb has failure to thrive right. So like you said. It's really an umbrella term to describe inadequate growth or the inability to maintain growth which usually occurs in early childhood. It can be a sign of under nutrition and it may be caused by medical problems or factors in the child's environment such as abuse or neglect or in this case genetic disease those that are biological may involve genetic factors such as chromosome abnormalities like down syndrome or single gene disorders such as those involved with metabolism as we see in brooke and so one of the conditions as they're going through in meeting with a pediatric genetic counselor at that point right of pediatric cancer in geneticists at different points. Soap part of the work with that is they're coming up with different conditions. That could be there. So one of those is called pompeii disease What for those. That maybe aren't familiar with pompeii disease. We've been talking about like oh metabolic conditions. Can you break down what that means. Sure pompeii diseases. What's called a glycogen storage disorder. It happens when the body can't make a protein that breaks down a conflicts should burn called glycogen for energy so too much sugar builds up and damages the muscles in the oregon so it causes muscle weakness in trouble breathing and in more severe cases a whole host of other problems that mostly affect a liver heart and muscles and depending on the type can be very serious and when it came to figuring out like what disorders you're gonna explore in terms of what the characters were facing what led you towards pompeii disease. Was there any experience in genetic counseling that led to that. No actually not not my own personal genetic counseling or in my work It's actually pretty funny story. I had initially written it as a different metabolic disorder which is really unexciting. Renamed maple syrup urine disease because when a child is affected with this urine tests smell like maple syrup and that has to do with the metabolites that are are building up in the urine and when my son was an infant i noticed his that his diaper sometime smelled like maple syrup and of course. He was absolutely fine but as a genetic counselor. I know it's a real disease and You know. I just kind of had to make sure and my son has always been laughing at me that i was just using my genetics knowledge to make up something ridiculous. We lot so we're looking for things and fail. Numbers yelling so i was going to use that disorder in the book as an image to my son. But then i realized that maple syrup urine disease would have been picked up on a newborn screening panel so that the fact that brooke hadn't been diagnosed with it right away wasn't particularly realistic So that point..

"If you're gonna include all the specialties. But maybe that's a challenge giving you there so the first genetic counselor they meet with is a fertility genetic counselor. What is discussed in this session. I mean it's a scene in the book. Do we say scenes her books. I think we do. But you know it's a chapter it's part of you know going through like meeting with the fertility genetic counselor. What's the type of content that's covered in that maybe people that are listening. That are like i didn't even know genetic counselors work fertility. What does that the like. That's what ryan aguirre said to. Each other is what is it genetic. Counselor why are we here you know. They made an appointment with the fertility clinic because naturally they were having trouble. Conceiving i don't know why else you would and they didn't even know they were seeing the genetic counselor so we always experienced that with our patients so i thought that was important to growing up and so they meet with this genetic counselor who tells them that every couple exploring the option of assisted reproductive technologies and their clinic. Anyway meets with a genetic counselor in order to review the couple's medical histories to determine whether there might be any signs of why they're having trouble. Conceiving and what risks might be to a baby due to things like maternal illness medication exposure. Anything that the the parents might pass onto the child. It's also to discuss how the couple might feel. If they discover that one or the other was infertile and might need to utilize sperm or egg. Donor conceived the pregnancy and all the emotional ramifications and physical logistics of how that all works she explains that there are many ways to achieve pregnancy in offers them carrier screening to provide some extra security for having a healthy baby. Or at least. That's what they go into it thinking right and so for part of that you know. They're looking at the fertility treatment options and. There's you know some people think. Oh you just go in you do. Ivf but there's a lot of different options when it comes to it and one of them is that they were like focused on. What are you. I for people. That don't don't know of that intrauterine insemination so. Depending upon what type of fertility issues people are experiencing different processes that that can be used in kierra and ryan decided to start with artificial insemination or Insemination because it's one of the simpler treatments in his often. The first step for couples with unexplained infertility. So that hadn't worked. Perhaps they would have gone to the next some more complicated procedure but they didn't actually moved to right and sometimes it can take a couple rounds of doing that which we also kind of see inexperienced there which i thought was really great that you see that things are not as straightforward some people. Think of like. Oh you just one day. Try and then you're pregnant and that's not always how it happens. Show how that affects people. Psychologically you know it can be devastating particularly for people who've been trying early longtime finally to get their acts together but you know finally make the big decision to go for a for treatments and then it doesn't necessarily work right away and that can be a major setback. Psychologically and even for marriages can be really challenging. Yeah we we get to see that. Play out in brooks promise. It's just the relationship between ryan cure in the conversations. They have especially with other family members. And how they're taking that information of you know we're doing fertility treatments and you know how does everybody feel about that and what are their perspectives on it. How much do they understand about it..

"Is alive through dreams and flashbacks. We learn that one of the main characters whose name is julia had been assaulted thirty years ago at summer camp when she was fifteen and has no memory of it at all and now she's older married has a couple of children and her son ryan who's grown up and married pushes his wife into a pregnancy. She's not sure she's ready to have. And they have a beautiful baby girl who has failure to thrive and when they take her for a number of medical evaluations. They find that she has a diagnosis of devastating hereditary disease. In the background of all of that here is her. His wife is a defense attorney. Who was hired to defend a college kid accused of acquaintance rape his case as well as gears pregnancy helped to restore julius memories which ends up revealing a world of secrets that threatens to unravel the entire family. So you know. They're all forced to uncover these truths that that they don't wanna face in discover a pass. That's have life altering consequences for all of them so certainly as a lot of story lines that all kind of lineup and end up coming together in different ways and just have to say that one of the main character i mean you have the couple but one of the characters is named kira so that might be confusing during this interview. When i saw that i was like oh look at that. I don't see the name cure a coupla. You spell spelled with a wise a little bit differently but what inspired you to sit down and write. This is something you've been thinking about for a while. Was this something more related to just like. Recently in life of say you know what i'm gonna sit down. Write a book with genetic counselors. It's funny a lot of people. Ask me that in. It's not something that i had always dreamed of doing. And finally the time for it just kind of came to me one day in one of my favorite authors is jody call to as many of you probably know about a book called my sister's keeper in which she tackled the issue of a couple having a baby for the spits specific purpose of being a stem cell donor to save her sister and the ethical dilemmas in that really struck me and i've actually used that book for book. Groups of my students and my other favorite author is lisa genova who uses the phd that she has a neuroscience to make neurologic disorders like alzheimer's and huntington's disease accessible to everyone her book. Still alice in inside the o'brien's and others really bring these neurologic disorders to life. But in in fiction in a way that it's accessible and in fact on her website it says that she writes stories that are equally inspired by neuroscience and human spirit and so a couple of years ago. It occurred to me that i could do the same for genetic disorders. So you know as well as i do that people expect to be expect genetics to be really complicated and assume that they're not going to be able to understand the details. I wanted to make those details accessible and real to the person reading a fiction story so in brooks promised the genetic disorder is a metabolic disease in baby brooke. And i have another novel coming out soon. Where i'm exploring a hereditary cancer syndrome in an adult and it's great because in this novel burks promise you can go through like the fertility side of things a little bit of the prenatal and then the pediatric and then sounds like the other covering cancers. You got like three four ish. Main areas their genetic counseling. Which you might have to write a lot of books..

Berlin-Tel Aviv 2036 Olympics Would Be ‘a Mark of Reconciliation’

"Come to the promised. Podcast brought to you on t. Lv one the voice of the city. That was just proposed as a possible venue for the twenty thirty six olympics which will be the thirty sixth modern olympics now that the international olympic committee just decided that the thirty fifth olympiad in twenty thirty two will be in brisbane australia. The twenty thirty six games are now for bid. The proposal was floated. in last. week's berliner morgenpost in a column written by franck koale ski a lead organizer of the two thousand and eighteen european track and field championships in berlin and ricard ming. The president of the german olympic association. The two men began by observing. What maybe obvious that berlin could not host the twenty thirty six games because berlin hosted the nineteen thirty six weeks which were by then german. Chancellor adolf hitler and held in stadiums festooned with swastikas. You may remember. There was some unpleasantness back. Then so berlin is out or is it. Kurowski wrote quote so why not send a completely new strong signal of peace and reconciliation in twenty thirty six a signal that does not hide from history but takes up the responsibility that comes from it. It would be such a signal. If and israel apply together more precisely berlin and tel aviv with the sailing and surfing competitions on the eastern mediterranean but also with other sports such as beach volleyball in israel's lively metropolis as a clear signal of how responsibility arises from

Small investors turn GameStop into a Wall Street "David and Goliath" story

"David and goliath story but with social media yeah. A story of small stock traders outwitting big institutional investors and making a fortune. Doing it for the moment game. Stop who's star covered around four dollars a year ago over three hundred dollars with the biggest gains happening just in this past week and in large part due to the buzz on social media online brokers tried to put the brakes on the wild ride but yesterday there were many more twists entrance. Npr's berliner senior editor in our business has been following all this. Thanks so much for being with us. He's got can you give us a recap of All the ups and downs this week. Yeah well let's start with game stop. It's retailer video games and familiar story. It our time It was in a lot of malls wasn't a good place to be And a bunch of headphones said you know that it's only gonna get worse for game stops. So they they bet against the stock. It's called short-selling At the same time though the online communities where a lot of people have taken to online trading People who were They were game. Stop fan maybe they had boss stuff there as kids and there are a lot more people treat online during the pandemic and they started buying stock when there's really push down And it just started picking up steam totally proliferated this weekend. It became kind of a mass movement. It sends the stock price in the stratosphere and the big hedge funds took a lot of losses. I mean that's the point and people make money a lot of people lose money who who winds up paying the price well. So far it's the hedge funds the short seller's they've lost a lot of money billions But that could all change if the game stop stock tumbles back to earth like for example where it was at the beginning of the year. It could be really painful for a lot of people who join these. These of message groups in in a place called a wall street bets where they've gathered to push up the stock. It's been kind of a jubilant atmosphere but if the stock starts fine they could get hurt pretty badly. Should we expect greater controls on. These rollercoaster trades to come in well. We saw some during the week. The popular online broker robin hood restricted trading game. Stop stop people from buying the stock. There was a huge backlash against robin hood. People were saying there was a lady double standard against small investors Robinhood opened up trading again on friday beyond that we should be hearings in congress and the securities and exchange commission dot a warning to be on the lookout for market manipulation. But there's no public evidence of that so far in this situation. There's nothing illegal or wrong about being enthusiastic about his stock now. If there's evidence the stock price was artificially inflated that would be a different story. How much has wall street been shaken by this. By saying how i'd want to say how easy because i'm sure it's not easy but How this could happen so unexpectedly. It's a seismic shift The power was in the hand of small investors for once you know wall street. Firms have had a lot of advantages in markets. That's let some people think they're rigged and this time the emitters got the upper hand Where this goes. No there could be some bearing back of short-selling but really we don't really know

Imagine you can do your christmas shopping without the stress because you will walk over the christmas market in between shops and you get a hot spicy wine standing next to your neighbors who've just doing the same thing you have a little chat and then you just keep on doing what you're doing and it sounds by the way referring to this is not a touristy thing i mean it's to make it a popular but it's also enjoyed by the local people iris. Fob and just talked about communicate. What is community. Could say a unique service word. It's stands for coziness coziness. Yes warms quietness time off with your friends. So there's a conviviality and as fabulous said this hot spiced wine might add a little bit. It's a time where it's hard time to leave and go home because you don't want to leave that atmosphere and you find that at christmas market. When are the christmas. I'm not celebrated at christmas time. But how early do they start in the season. And when do they close down for most parts of. There should be starting on the first weekend of advent for sundays before. Christmas for sunday's before christmas exactly but also some chris markets. Now they're start towards the end of november because they want to have more of a season stretch the shopping season. Yes the united states is a big kind of discussion.

"The Berliner Gramophone Company of Philadelphia, founded by Emile Berliner. Was The company. That really was the focus of this this strife Berliner and gets the credit for inventing the first flat disc record before his invention, engineers would press recordings on two cylinders. So you had these cylinders that you would put on a school. Essentially, that would then rotate and you could play it back on various devices. This were much easier to store right. You didn't have as much space as much bulk as a cylinder dead. They were easier to ship and once the manufacturing process was refined, they lasted a lot longer than cylinders dead as well. It took a while to get the right materials, but Once they did those disks just seemed more practical. Berliner made a deal with an enterprising manufacturer and machinist named Eldridge are Johnson Johnson developed a wind up spring motor for Berliners gramophones. Previously those gramophones had relied on hand cranks. So you would literally turn a crank, which would then turn the gears inside the device and turn the platter so that you could listen to the disk. Being played back on the gramophone. Johnson did good work. He created a spring motor that worked reliably, but Berliner would enter into a sales agreement with a man named Frank Seaman. And this would lead to massive trouble. Frankie wanted more money for himself and eventually began to sell knockoffs of Berliners works while simultaneously bringing legal action much of its spurious in nature against both Berliner and Johnson. The process eventually prevented Berliner from selling gramophones in the United States and nearly bankrupted both Berliner and Johnson in the process, and this was infuriating to them. I mean, they were the ones who had created this technology, and now this salesman they had worked with Was claiming that they were the ones infringing on his patents, his ideas and his trade secrets. But in 1901 Johnson, Berliner and some other entrepreneurs got together and founded a new consolidated company that took Berliners facilities and Johnson's manufacturing plants as the basis for the new organization. And this was the victor talking machine company, which incorporated on October 3rd 1901. So the victor talking machine company was older than the Radio Corporation of America that would not be born until 1919. Sarnoff looked at the victor talking machine company and thought this is a way I could sell more radios. I could take this company and take their product. The The gramophones. Essentially, although they didn't call it that in the United States, they couldn't that they started calling it things like the Victrola that was one that the victor company made. I can take that I can incorporate a radio into the design of those machines, sell it as a new product and sell more radios this way. Also, just as a quick aside, the victor trademark is one of the more famous ones in business history. It shows a dog, specifically a fox terrier sitting in front of a gramophone horn and the dog's head is tilted slightly. From a painting titled His Master's Voice, and the artist was Francis borrowed and it was made in 18 99. The dog was named Nipper and once belonged to be roads, nephew Mark Mark had tragically passed away. And then Francis saw Nipper one day sitting near a gramophone with his head cocked, and that led Francis to wonder what the dog's reaction would be if they had happened to be playing a recording. His old master mark speaking. That was the inspiration for the painting. They tried selling the painting as a magazine illustration to no avail, and ultimately sold it to the gramophone Company for the princely sum of £100 sterling. Johnson got permission from the gramophone company to use it for his products under the victor company, and Berliner had trademarked the design and, at some point transferred that trademark over to the victor company. The whole story is super fascinating, and I'm sure I'll devote a future episode to the victor talking machine company. But for now, let's remember that it started in 1901 and Even though it grew out of an older a company and that would eventually get incorporated. Into R C.

Berlin abruptly curtails nightlife

"The last time Berlin nightlife shutdown was nineteen, forty, nine, but increasing. Rates in the German capital of forced another closure from tomorrow when bars restaurants and off licences will have to shot at eleven multiples correspondent in the city. Kimberly Bradley. is on the line can be thanks for joining us. Now, it makes for a good headline Berlin nightlife shots but in reality, the nightclubs have been shuttered for a while and the Baas may have to close earlier but this isn't a total shutdown. Is it? You know? No no the the bars will have to close at eleven pm each night. And we'll have to stay closed until six in the morning. But that hasn't happened. We haven't had a curfew since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine. So it is a big deal. Yeah. What are the the latest figures that have made this necessary? Okay the. Per One, hundred thousand people have been over fifty cases of corona diagnosed in the city. We do have a traffic light system, and that means that that particular indicator is a red light and it's been that way for a few days. People are a bit alarmed and there have also been concentrations in typically party neighborhoods like noise cone or fury signed. That are way over that well, over one hundred per one, hundred, thousand. So the city's reacted pretty quickly. Why do you think been this leap in infections? That's a good question I. think it's because the weather is shifting and people are moving indoors and secondly they've become a bit complacent because Germany's done quite well with corona. We didn't have any huge hotspots in. Berlin up until now. And I do see myself personally a bit of a laziness on the streets people being quite careless with mask use, etc. There's been a lot of discussion about this that people are just getting a little tired. There's chronic fatigue What other regulations are coming into place to help drive down the rate. We're kind of all sitting and reading the newspaper every day there haven't been any travel restrictions within berliner with other countries like Australia. Certain states, other states within Germany are restricting travel from Berlin lectures because Stein? And in addition to bars closing from eleven to six we also. Close these little shops on the corners that sell things through the night they have to close as well and even private parties are regulated. So normal, no more than ten people are allowed at a private party and only five people outdoors from two households. So you have to understand from a British perspective. This looks like she luxury. Here a curfew of PM has been much criticized how Germans reacting to early closure. Germans are actually quite obedient. The younger people who really need to go out more than somebody like me aren't happy with it economically, of course, it's a big question as to whether the clubs will remain open but. In general bigger populist Kinda wants to control the corona virus and we're. Quite compliance. So I'm hearing mixed reactions in most people just do it I think yeah. I. Mean. We know that this is a city that up slightly loves it. They. Go nonsmoking in some us. Yeah that's true. They just separated those out I mean we have smoker bars we have non smoking bars. But I People are getting a little nervous again so I would say the bulk. Of, the city population I think will comply or hopefully comply very quickly. So it goes away I. think that's the thinking. Do you think the hospitality industry can survive this? Let me crippling commercially. Es. I do see the city having taken different measures. A lot of the clubs that have been closed basically since earlier this year have moved operations outdoors. They've opened beer gardens or in the case of bear kind which we talked about a few weeks ago, they've moved art into the club. Hotels are suffering the long term effects I think remains to be seen but what people are saying is that this will probably go well into twenty twenty one. And the winter's going to be a tough haul. Yeah Yeah. So. As you say, the nightclubs have pivoted and all the rest of it, what do you think people will do in of late night Baas? I know that my circle planning very small. Dinner. Parties. Going to. Yeah, we do really count to a couple of them already they've been tiny and very intimate and discussing this very topic, but it's always it's about five people. Yes. And that's what I'm hearing at least in my circle younger people I do think we'll probably meet outdoors and maybe run their risks. I know the police get a little crazy when they see large groups gathering outside and it depends on how cold it gets throughout the winter. Yeah. Can really thank you very much indeed.

As pandemic stretches on, retail bankruptcies approach highest number in a decade

"Our lead story today is a tale of a balancing act of retailers in this economy trying to overcome simply terrible I three quarters of the year. By finishing strong, you'll hear elsewhere in the program today of indicators were watching to educate our guesses about where things are going but a report from the accounting consulting firm. Bdo chose twenty-nine big retailers filed for bankruptcy protection in this economy through August and that if things continue at that pace, we will match two thousand, ten the dark days after the great recession. So for all the retailers still getting by the last three months of the coming year, that is this year are going to be even more critical than usual as they go looking for some hope in the holidays marketplace's Justin Ho starts us off. The report found that bankrupt retailers have closed almost six thousand stores. This year retailers that have seen the most bankruptcies sell apparel shoes products. We just haven't been buying much during the pandemic stores in malls have been especially hard hit. You've got eight or nine hundred stores spread across malls. In the United States, you probably need about half the stores Brian Yarbrough is an analyst with Edward Jones. He says the big box retailers are spending more to attract consumers who just aren't going to the mall and WanNa shop online you're seeing the walmarts and the targets of the. World Invest. Billions of dollars a year in technology these small companies can't keep up but many retailers rely on their physical locations and are struggling to stay competitive and attract shoppers during a critical holiday season David.

Freelance work grows amid Covid-19

"Going around these days, The future of work is now the pandemic has turned million's of us into virtual workers. And there's another trend that's been less obvious permanent full time jobs, going freelance that severing ties between companies and employees as NPR's Orry, Berliner reports. Diana Gil was having her early morning coffee at her New York apartment when the messages started coming in from the boss's office. Can you get on a call this morning with the president? And then, of course, I knew what that meant. She was being laid off from her job as executive editor at Tour books. Gil was given a month's notice, and she had plenty of projects to keep occupied. So the new reality didn't register at first, but then May and I was like Well, there's Cove. It's so there's certainly not jobs right this minute. That's when it sank in. She was a freelancer. Her 24 year career as an editor at New York's top publishers was over. Now editing book, like Manuscript is a specialized skill. So Gil has been pretty busy so far. But she was thrown into the much less secure world of freelancing where the money and gigs are unpredictable, freelancing this feast or famine so kind of comes in waves, and I know at some point there'll be less of it, So I'm looking at that sort of what to do. I had to sort of make it. Work is a business making it work is a business becoming a free agent. That's the challenge predicament, however, you want to phrase it. Facing many Americans. The percentage increases are alarmingly big. That's Julia Pollock labor economists with the job site's IP recruiter. Zip recruiter tracks the proportion of job postings that are temporary rather than permanent, And it's kind of dramatically during the pandemic. The share of temporary job postings in communications, for example, was was only 12% prior to Kobe. It jumped up to 48% in April and May and though it's come down a bit, it's still very, very high. A similar story and feels like HR, and advertising and marketing. The junk was from about 8% historically, to 28% Post Cove. It part of the shift is predictable. When the economy is shaky and the outlook uncertain. Employers are reluctant to hire permanent workers and now tools like Zoom are creating more flexibility in the workplace. White collar jobs can be done anytime, anyplace by any capable person with a phone and a laptop work is untethered from the office. So workers don't build personal connections with their bosses. I think now you know, lots of companies are starting to think like, Hey, maybe we don't really need these full time employees. Stephanie Coddle is the founder of Black Girl Group of Freelance staffing agency. I think now you know these cos they're starting to see like, Hey, having these folks at home is saving me money. Hey, I don't see those people. So do I really need to be given them benefits as the recession dragged on the axis, fallen on a wide range of workers. And some workplace experts say a lot more white collar jobs will be done by contractors probably forever. But starting a freelance career after getting laid off isn't something people do by choice, says Connell. You almost begin a freelance out of necessity. You don't have time Tio, you know, cry or be down or depressed because you lost your job used to have bills to pay. And those bills don't care that you lost your job. The freelance economy was enormous before the pandemic. And has grown even larger during it. Two million freelancers have been added in just the past year. That's according to the freelancing platform upward upward study claims a majority of freelancers who started since the pandemic say no amount of money would convince them to take a traditional job. A very different picture emerges on the job site. Zip recruiter. Here's the company's labour economies. Julia Polic, the vast majority 90% of active Zip recruiter, job seekers are looking for a permanent full time position a job with benefits like health care. A job with a sense of purpose and mission where you make really connections with your co workers, Pollack says. That's what most workers want. Gauri Berliner

Members Of The Class Of 2020 Face A Brutal Job Market

"Just. A few months ago college seniors could reasonably expect to graduate into one of the best job markets in history. Now, because of the pandemic, they've graduated into one of the worst generations when members of the class of twenty twenty half landed jobs, the experience is odd NPR's Berlin reports. Twenty twenty was shaping up to be a great year for Golden. DACA, he be the first member of his family to graduate from college not only that he was the Valedictorian of his school. Morehouse College. ATLANTA. But in March, campus emptied and classes went online and then the moment he'd been waiting for commencement it was postponed I wanted to give that huge speech onstage with my family friends and loved ones who made it very possible for me to go to it came to an abrupt end been expecting rites of passage and celebration. Instead he landed in the pandemic, it's been a really difficult transition you know and it's been one that's a mocking allies with. A lot of uncertainty. A lot of self doubt. Worst of all, his grandmother who was supposed to come see him graduate passed away in their native. Zambia. Despite everything, there has been a bright spot dako landed a paid fellowship with the governor of Illinois after four rounds of remote interviews. So I'm more on the fortunate side and a lot of my classmates in other individuals across the nation are is a very challenging time to be a new college graduate through pollock is a Labor economist with the job sites Ziprecruiter. So compared with fee labor market in February before covert hit, we have seen job postings for the entry level positions most popular among new college graduates fall by seventy three percent. But even though postings have plummeted, people are still landing jobs. So even in a crisis, there are companies hiring eighteen million jobs have been posted. On ziprecruiter since covert struck, what has changed dramatically is how those new workers get hired interviews or evolving from those zoom skype calls and now to virtual video platforms where you record yourself answering the questions and then send that video in yourself. So you have no interaction with a person that all the lack of face to face human interaction that's been one constant for Danielle Kaplan she graduated this spring from the University of Iowa, and moved in with her mom it's been fine. But with a lot of activity around the house, it was tricky for her to find a quiet place for job interviews. So I, feel like my interviewer singing a different background, every single time with them. You know this is a very difficult, but as it turned out, backgrounds didn't matter. So I will be heading to Kansas City to work at a startup in. So I'm really excited about it. Kaplan's excitement is accompanied by trepidation because so much of the last few months felt unreal even disembodied. This is a huge major life transition that I'm about to undergo and it doesn't feel that way. I've been virtually meeting people. Virtually getting an apartment. So nothing feels like tangible to me all that is about to change this weekend. Kaplan will load up a rental truck and moved to a new hometown. Kansas. City. There won't be anything virtual about it.

How Berlin Remembers; Turkish Delights; Travel to Bhutan

"Berlin has become the high tech and cultural powerhouse of today's dynamic German economy but there are still plenty of Berliners who can tell you about the difficulties. They faced back in the twentieth century as a divided city and stories of life under the Nazis during World War Two. We're joined now by German tour guides older Timur and Fabien Muga. Look at some of the most impressive monuments and memorials. You can visit to remember the lessons from Berlin past gentlemen. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having to live in Berlin as a tourist. You just come and go to live there. You're surrounded by all of this history and all of these memorials when you walk down the streets. Does it become just background and you just see through it or are you constantly aware of this happened there? This happened there and so on holger is part of everyday life. Yes but it's not like you kind of oversee it because it is there it is right in your face. I've seen most of the memorials like many countless times. As a berliner as tour guide here but they still are some of them are really haunting especially when it comes to divided city to the wall or to the time of the National Socialist period and in the case of Germany. With your complicated history. The memorials are almost there to not go away to be in your face. I mean there's even something called stumble stones right Fabio yes. There are a memorial stones to victims of the Holocaust who had deported from particular houses. And if you have a friend or relative was deported from that house you can donate some money to this foundation and they will put stumbling stone into the pavement Princeton pavement. Like you need to trip on this to never forget the horrible thing that happened right there when you think about Germany. A lot of our fixated on World War Two in the whole fastest thing but of course there's many layers of the city that was the leading city of of the PRUSSIAN empire and so on Fabio. And when you think about memorials of the horns period and Prussia what is there in Germany to look at our Berlin. I think the most visible that everybody know will know. Is The victory column. That's in the center of the main park often. The victory column was built as a symbol of victory over the French. This is where history and Berlin connect. It was originally standing on the spot where it is today. The Nazis moved at there to make it stand in a more triumphant spot in the very center of the city. It was originally built near the rice stuck building and was not looking quite some one mental there today. Six major streets of lead straight towards the listen to that part of a big access isn't it? I mean Hoeger. The whole city is built on this axis which lined by memorials. The East and west access really is this fascinating thing. You look up. And you see Golden Angel Hair and you think. Wow that's wonderful. Then you close in you. See while this is all candidates made cannons French cannons French cannons. Like as a AS A TO Z. Boy To as spoils of war multiple. Yeah so it is weird thing. If you you would think that's nice to call between can look at it that it has a little jab at the French. It's a big Jab at Big Jab at the French or the Germans the French and of course I in the next century. We've got the whole Hitler situation and a lot of memorials relating to the nightmare of Berlin being the capital of Nazism. What are some of the memorials that you'll see when you go to Berlin that way what I found very haunting as the memorial to the burning of the books right near onto the Lyndon right near the State Opera House? And it's basically a memorial that you wouldn't really see because it's underground and you would just maybe pastas Query Newton. We have no idea what it is but quite often you see consumerist groups looking at nothing really and then you look there and it basically is a hole in the ground. It's a glass plate in the ground and he looked down and there is an empty library like five by five five meters containing empty shelves for twenty thousand books. Symbolizing was happening in the tenth of May Nineteen thirty three. When the Nazis took all the books and literature that they hated that it didn't understand they didn't like and were putting them in a big pile and burning him openly for people to see and that's now empty. Shelves are very haunting memorial to that.

Jim coyle who consults with hotels on customer experiences. When you get a guest key you will see the staff members. They will conspicuously white.

"Lots of change of course since the last time you were with me on the show as after news for you wonder what will make you very happy. United. I know. You don't fly united but if you were to fly again united as asked cabin crew to controlling to dimming windows of the liner essentially say allow the passengers do whatever they want these goal. I mean I understand why they dim them at certain points of a flight on mass. So the whole cabinet atmosphere changes especially when it's supposed to be time to to sleep what? I get frustrated by than when they're locked that's what management that it has to do not lock the system. Essentially I wonder if they're able to restrict the DIM nece. So if you say you can. They're unlocked but they can't be fully open which I would kind of understand. That would certainly a piece people like me. But that's interesting that they've had such volume of feedback that they've made that change exactly or they just listened to layovers. That's that's more likely exactly the second news I hinted at it in the intro did about you is that. Berlin seems to be happening actually happening because thunder as actually scheduled flights on October thirty first. Which is the opening. Apparently the soft opening date for a full opening November eighth. It's pretty unbelievable. You set yourself that you were not believing and I wasn't believing it either but it seems stupid will open I. I don't know why it is changed times. It's interesting. There is a third party setting a date for their moving as opposed to the airport authority or anybody on behalf of the airport saying this is going to be the open day. It's it's an airline saying this is when we're going to shift and it's all their operation right. It's not it's not just a test. It's this is when we're GONNA start flying out of that airport and remember when we did both of the airports of berlin-tegel and Schoenfeld lift as it doesn't fly there. They send eurowings. I mean does Fi of course but I'm wondering now if we will actually have proper operations as Frankfurt in they don't they don't really so far so I I still cannot believe it. I mean I don't watch. I just can't believe that he's going to happen. And you know we running Joe too was was going to arrive. I Will Italia Fail I. It seems that they will never fail. Will the Max Awry? I A berliner. After these two are still in contention the Mexico to arrive before Berlin. I duNNo. It's very because with strange times. We'RE LIVING. I don't lie about answer window. So there on office and depends on Crete where you sit and Jeez. I want to give up to Andrew. Curran is a writer for a site that we both read quite often called simple flying and so quoted us like mentioned us which is very nice. Exactly that okay. Because we were saying like who's going to be I you know the Max or and well. He said that we did. Put our money onto Max coming. I was still have a shot of that Andrew. You're basing northern New South Wales in Australia. I I'll show her friends will maybe having a strap. Is it coming up at some point this year? Maybe maybe so into you will have it. His favourite airline is a Singapore Airlines. Here you have very taste I was gonNA say fair enough. I'm just wondering what's Your airport. Because you say northern New South Wales Brisbane is probably close to you. But that's already Queensland believe so which one is it Andrew? Just reach out to us and thank you for for listening. And since I'm on simple flying they also have a podcast. It's a very cool podcast as well. Everybody's doing podcasts Alex. We're we're the okay boomers podcast now because we're like the og in like everybody does podcast. It's very close. The I think they started like early. Feb they also have like these kinds of thirty minutes once a week. Type of Schedule which is really cool for those who don't want to listen to US venture for two hours every odd weeks that we we. Do we do this? So simple flying. You can find it on apple podcasts and everywhere and this is Super Cool Bravo guys. Congratulations more the merrier. Since we're talking about okay boomer of Aggie podcasts. Ourselves to reviews I on apple podcasts. Five stars thank you. The title is where has this? Been all my life from BIG CASTS. Eleven from the.

I love their personalities. Spot guests is great for any AV geeks such as myself or someone who loves travel. Thank you so much and the second one is from already in MS ready in MSP. Of course Minneapolis which we now covered as you heard. Alex great details on Global Airlines Five Stars Great Show. I always enjoy your shows and look forward to the next one is interesting to hear where you have been and the airlines. You flown on question receive people. I love it that people use reviews. Us question looking at booking a trip to Rome on American Airlines with miles and seem to be able to get much better rate if I had to stop in either Madrid on you barrier or London. Nba would you recommend this? And if so which city in our line? Well Man Rudy going to Rome today not sure. I don't think that here experience. If you quite what you hoped it would be the. What would you do for when if all this stops because Italy for those? Who Don't keep track of isn't a full lockdown. So I mean I know that Ryan ourselves fly Suzanne set from Rome but besides that I think no one flies there. Would you if you weren't? Us would you fly direct with a? Would you prefer a barrier via Madrid? I know our love for Narnia and or we e throw with. I don't know the long haul product. I don't really know the shorthaul product either so I don't know but between the two I would still go a in premium an above but be a in economy. Yeah and if you really want to stop so meaning if as out of the question be. I think it's still a better choice in because you will not be changing terminal in Saudi throw. You'll be fine. Yeah passing so I. I know some people might disagree. But and it's not that we don't pay you better. I think the whole product I've done because I've done to Madrid three forty I think. Yeah it's okay. There's ochre like looking at each other as the be a business for instance but it's it's okay. I think still better. So how's your flu Alex? Well just waiting for the inevitable. I can't do this all any of us can do anything. Yeah exactly it's it's so strange man. Up China Eastern has introduced a new coronavirus glass. Oh on top of visas. Glass preemies coronavirus. The last three row after starboard side off their aircraft will be reserved for those who show potential signs of sickness. Now it's not called the coronavirus. Plus that's me actually making that up but they are actually segregating a bit of the aircraft for people that might have signs of sickness. I I don't know how it works but yeah people that develop the symptoms during the flight. Surely you shouldn't be traveling if you already have this and maybe an epidemiologist would be able to tell us if this is complete waste of time it feels like a complete waste of time. Yeah I said in my very long intro in the previous episode I'm sorry guys it was thirty minutes of renting that Yeah you should be flying if you if you're sick even James Von for crying out loud is my God. I'm like I'm so unhappy about that. That was you. Were not traveling. At least seeing James Bond like a month would have been called but no we don't even get get oil. You can't go. I mean people are not supposed to the movie theater anyway. That's what we're doing right now. Alex Social Distance. What exactly I don't know man. I I think I have a lot less apocalyptic view than this or more A. There's very little I can do about it. That's true however I think that's that's very true. I'm being mindful as not being panicky and I. I see people being panicky. I think that I mean we'll come to that. Actually know what planes it becoming the safest place for social distancing because they're at and the prices are dropping some of the. I mean I think what we see on. Social media is the extreme cases where there's four people on a flight to wherever it may be but the data is now emerging to that showing that these these flights are tanking. And you know now. These reports are coming out. That airlines are running virgin. Nba running empty flights. Just to keep the slots alive gump to that. Yeah Yeah it's not. I mean I think it was of all of the industries that could suffer the most initially. Who knows what the future holds travel and particularly airlines. We're going to be the ones that got hit

Berlin starts controversial rent freeze on 1.5 million homes

"The last decade or so the cost of renting a flato house in Berlin has risen steadily and sharply. It's led to fears that the city is becoming unaffordable to the very people who give it its young energy but this weekend. Berlin authorities introduced a Rent Camp. Landlords have been forbidden from raising rents on about one and a half million homes. The aim is to reinstate a sense of balance or Stephanie. Bolton is London correspondent for develop and joins US now Stephanie. Welcome back and how does this new ranked cat work while? It's a far more complicated than it. Sounds so The rent kept has come into force last Sunday and it refers to the To the level of the Ren SPEC in June twenty nineteen so if you are renting a flat in Berlin and You realize that actually So you can look at the index from June two thousand nineteen and you you see that what you're paying currently is more than twenty percent above the index. Then you can Actually you have to contact your landlord and say well. I'm paying over the Over the odds And therefore I'm now paying less to you but there are a lot of legal questions and the biggest one is that The opposition parties in Berlin half now called the Constitutional Court and score. And it's quite possible that Constitutional Court will say this This new Rent Cap is illegal because this has caused a huge amount of division in terms of whether it is a good or a bad thing. Hasn't it because those who wanted it introduced say we can keep affordable housing for people in Berlin which will then encourage young people to come will make sure those who are low income have a quality of life. That's not enjoyed by people in. Let's say London. Let rent in the center of the city are incredibly high. Those who don't want this to happen. Say That if you put a rank camp you'll drive away investment and there will be a housing shortage. Yes I mean. I'M A in everything. Probably the truth is somewhere in the middle but of course those who invest a saying if you cannot get the capital we need to reinvest that will actually make housing more difficult. They will not be more Especially social housing will not be billed. Because it's not attractive for an investment company want at the same time the the Senate in Berlin the Senate is the government in Berlin. I'm saying that's not true. We are actually building. I think something like five hundred new units of social housing every year and It is I mean after all is also Political questions a bit. It has become a bit of a populist question. Because last summer you've seen tens of thousands of Berliners going on the streets and protesting against the high rents and infect quite a lot of people claim that they are paying more than forty percent of their incomes now on for for renting. And you have to have in mind that Germany is a country where people usually rent. They do not own their flats so around. Fifty percent of people rent fled the whole life. They never buy a house and so it has always been something that You could afford quite well your your your house or your flat. It was maybe twenty five thirty percent of your income nevermore and in Berlin in the last ten years I looked at the index It depends where you are and what kind of house you got. What kind of lead? But if it was in two thousand eight five euro per square meter. It's ten euro per square meter so you cannot deny that has been a real rise in rents said tennis where this is going to end. I mean is the long-term image and identity of Berlin going to be altered by this change that's to be seen. It's really very very early days to say that and it They are already the first problems because there is not enough staff in the In the neighborhood councils. So the neighborhood councils are actually in charge is if you say you listen middle you listen wedding edition quarterback and you say hey. This is actually not dried ice. I'm paying too Too much you should call a contact your roof or council. The local councils do not have the staff to actually attend the people that decides Because he cannot just cut your. If you just don't pay your rent you actually get into a into illegal position so this is one thing then they have said they will be hotline. Running from Monday onwards hotline hasn't even cooked the stuff either Plus as I said in the beginning there will be several legal cases and the most important one will be in the Constitutional Court in Congress. Were in if they say. This is actually breaking The right of landlords in on Germany than the whole project is going to be put into question. Anyway Stephanie Votes and thank you very much indeed for joining us on monocle twenty

"Lash and James Berliner on the board if you wanna follow me on social media Twitter Facebook Instagram all that fun stuff you can find me a Ryan Igor men into follow Morgan at Morgan on the Mike I'm not doing Snapchat and I'm not doing tick tock I'm gonna do tech talk I haven't done it yet or non sentient yeah so that don't add me on Snapchat I don't want to talk to people there that's weird time now to get to today's top story the latest on the ongoing conflict with Iran let me start with what happened last night a break it down for you according to the Pentagon at approximately five thirty PM eastern standard time Arron launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US military coalition forces in Iraq the missiles were launched from Iran which is important and they targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting US military coalition personnel at all aside and Beale wasn't as US military affected by this it was coalition personnel as well there were no casualties any tax caused minimal damage shows a best case scenario for US department of defense official told CBS news that the US was alerted multiple hours before the attack given troops on the base plenty of time to take shelter the warning came from a combination of satellites and signals and communications intercepts the same systems that monitor North Korea for tax so we were prepared well ahead of time for what happened last night and this was an unexpected there were multiple reports that the thinking was sometime twenty four to thirty six hours after the end of the mourning period for a running in general Qasem Soleimani retaliation would likely take place and that was exactly what happened what was really notable out the attack was it a Ron took responsibility for the missile strike most of these attacks that happened over there that we know Iran was behind happen through proxies Arron wanted the world to know that they were behind this one it was also really no hiding in Maine these were ballistic missiles our bases in Iraq have been under rocket attacks before so this was in the first time again usually throw a running and proxies and part of a Ron wanting everyone to now they were responsible for this attack was for domestic consumption along with sending a message to the world and to the United States the fact that there were no American casualties was a huge huge deal because and I'm gonna get to the events that have unfolded sense but likely the events would have been much different over the past twenty four hours had any Americans died in the attack following the missile strike rather than doing an address to the nation which I thought would have been unnecessary president trump tweeted all is well missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in a rock assessment of casualties and damage is taking place now so far so good we have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world by far I will be making a statement tomorrow morning around supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei said in a nationally televised address last night after the missile strike that Iranian forces had slapped the U. S. on the face by attacking the basis he also said and this is important military action like this is not sufficient it is important is ending the corrupting presence of American the region so you can be sure that Iran is gonna be taken more covert actions in the region again through their proxies and possibly in the cyber realm here at home but their public military response the day took responsibility for was just that missile strike last night president trump addressed the nation this morning like you said it was going to do last night in that tweet I didn't think it was his best speech but especially the way it was delivered but it was the content of the speech what he said that really matters and the content in my opinion was generally pretty solid some of the key points from that address he said as long as I'm president of the United States or Ron will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon he said Iran appears to be standing down he announced new sanctions on Iran economic sanctions as opposed to more military action which was what everybody was waiting to hear he called on the U. K. Germany France Russia and China to withdraw from the twenty fifteen nuclear deal and begin working on a new more comprehensive one that includes dealing with Iran's behavior in the region and that's been the major criticism of Obama's nuclear deal was it was so narrow and only dealt with the nuclear aspect now of course there were some aspects of the nuclear deal itself dealing with chest Iran's nuclear program the people had a problem with that was enough oversight this that whatever but a big concern was that it didn't deal with Iran's behavior that's what president trump wants from a new deal he also called on NATO take on a bigger role in the Middle East this afternoon speaker Nancy Pelosi an ounce of the house is gonna vote tomorrow on a war powers resolution to curb potential military action my president trump toward Arron that followed members of Congress getting briefed by top national security officials on the intelligence behind the decision to kill a running in general Qasem Soleimani there's been a big question about this administration's claim that there was an imminent threat posed by selling money and that's why you had to be taken out now really nobody is disputing the fact this was a bad guy nobody's disputing the fact that this guy was causing problems in the region that he likely was involved in planning further attacks the question is been arounds the administration's use of the word in minutes that they had to take this action now because there was an imminent attack that was planned and they really haven't provided any evidence for that and again I've said this before in my opinion it didn't matter if the attack was imminent or not no we know what Solomon he does we had an American drone struck down we had Saudi oil facilities that were hit and attacked at an unprecedented level we had an American contractor killed we've had I have any rocket attacks on American forces and allies in the region we had an embassy there was storm is a riot outside our embassy in Baghdad I thought there was plenty reason to take out some money and send a really really strong message to Arron they need to knock it out the most notable comments following the briefing came from Republican senator Mike Lee of Utah he called it probably the worst briefing at least on a military issue the scene he described the briefing is unamerican unconstitutional wrong and completely unacceptable strong words here's a clip of what else he told reporters today.

Top things to do in Berlin

"I. I'd like to welcome the show. Audrey Scott and Daniel knoll from an cornered market DOT COM or at welcome back to the show I should say and we brought Audrey and and Daniel back to talk about Berlin Germany Audrey and Daniel Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having us back and I say welcome back to the show but I. I don't know if I could come up with all the Times you've been the show. We certainly done wonderful episodes together on prog and Bangladesh are the two that really stand out for me. I think there may maybe some other ones and there certainly some this. We can travels in there also but I put a list of all the shows they have been on in the show notes so we don't have to waste time with that but we have not covered Berlin Lynn Germany in quite a long time. I was really surprised how long it had been more than a decade since we've talked about a rather rapidly changing city Berlin has changed a lot lot since we covered it the first time in the show for sure and you guys happened to live there now. Yeah we've actually called Berlin are home now for about seven years. It's hard to believe Aleve and even within that time it's changed quite a lot so if we go back over a decade yeah. There's been a lot of changes well so this seemed like a really good excuse to have two of my favorite guests back on the show. Why should someone think about going to Berlin? Well it it certainly seems to be enjoying an another up surgeon ovulating. Correct me if I'm wrong on the statistics. I think it's the third most popular destination in Europe. And it's interesting because Berlin on the surface is is not a traditional European destination meaning. It doesn't have preserved old town like Prague Nick or even like many of the other incredible credible cities in Europe but when it has a has its dynamism feel to it and creativity and energy and so people don't really come to Berlin to see Z.. Beautiful old buildings there are still a few that remain. There's obviously really interesting history here but it's more for its creative field for its neighborhoods spor. There's also has a really big party scene for those who like clubbing. It's more about the feel of the place will. Then I think the other two most popular cities than would would be London and Paris. I believe you're talking about and compared to the two of them it's also had a reputation for being less expensive low. I don't know if that's still true. I think Jewish rush to a great degree. It is having just visited London. I think we can. We can vouch for that London. Right still a great city but yeah so yes certainly your dollar euro or whatever you can be carrying goes a little bit further and I think it's just a different city. Virginia from what Adriana said before I think when people come away their struck with the difficulty to articulate why Berlin sticks with them in a way that it does in the word they often use five. I love the divider that city. Such an interesting vibe that the atmosphere and I think a lot of s to do with the fact that religion is in a constant state of Flux Fox and perhaps in a constant state of Renaissance reimagining itself will in you mention concentrate of luck so the first time I was in Berlin. We've talked about this on. The show was a year after the wall fell and the the heart of the city. The center of the activity was Kurfurstendamm. Turn down on the western side and you could still see the bullet holes in the walls on. What was East Germany? You could hardly find any trace of the wall but you wouldn't meet. You didn't need it to tell what had been East. Germany was still fairly drab on that side of in a lot of the buildings and things I think the the last time I was back in a completely flipped the vibrant activity was where it traditionally was in the eastern part of the city buttered standard that continues continues to change since I have been there. Yeah I mean. The city is constantly changing in Berlin is a very neighborhood focused city so the neighborhoods are always experience in different levels of renaissance also in their hip when they're not hit but for especially after the wall fell East Berlin. What was formerly east? Berlin was the hub hub for heart for artists and the mayor actually was rather smart. He said we have all these really big industrial buildings. We have all this space and actually opened up four artists for basically like squatter communities and art studios and stuff and so that attracted a lot of artists in creative types to the city in. So you still feel let today but some of the traditional areas where that was like Mitte has now become a bit too expensive a little bit too gentrified now. Those artists communities are going a little bit more. Let's say towards the edges where there still is available space will emit a would be middle so literally the middle of the city. Yeah it's the middle of the city but it was the heart of former East Berlin and all the neighborhoods have changed quite a bit like we live in Nikon in the south and our neighborhood. We talked to Berliners who grew up appear in their thirties forties. Saying when I was young you never went there. That was considered a bad place to go. Someone joked it was like the Harlem like in the bad days but but now it's a vibrant community. We've got museums and galleries. But also it's still has this connection to its roots. which is a worker community as as well as an immigrant community? So it's this interesting dynamic between a little bit of gentrification which is a big issue in Berlin right now but it still has its soul in terms of the working man every day. Many hood is well excellent. Well let's start to put some structure on. That's what kind of itinerary would you recommend for someone who's coming to Berlin especially for the first time time. Okay well that really depends on the number of day. Well let's target. Let's talk about a week for Berlin and day trips from Berlin. I think the first piece of advice that we might give to. Someone has to understand that Berlin. Is I believe approximately three hundred sixty miles square miles in terms of landmass. So you're not gonna be able to cover the entire city so I think the trick is to figure out what are the core elements that you'd like to see in Berlin East and west and then maybe to identify a a couple of non-core that are out there in some of the neighborhoods so in terms of some of the usual suspects in. You're looking at things like checkpoint Charlie in the Checkpoint Charlie Museum which definitely definitely a although it is touristy at something that we often recommend to people particularly on those days that are not good weather days at the museum. Actual checkpoint appoint Charlotte's it's rather touristy and people are posing for photos but the museum is actually it's a private initiative and it has all sorts of stories and photos of life rush when the wall was up as well as stories of escape. And it's quite well done. Well let's dig into that a little more so checkpoint Charlie one of the famous checkpoints between East in West Berlin. There's the little guardhouse there which is a reconstruction because they tore down the guardhouse ray quickly after they down the wall and then realized Oh hey we we have this wonderful memorable spot so they. They built it back up again but the checkpoint Charlie Museum was there during the time of the wall all and it started as a private collection of memorabilia about escapes predominantly from Berlin and. I think it's a fascinating museum Ziam. Although I would have to say the last time I was there. It had a feel of grandma's attic in terms of organization. I don't know if that has changed. Excel Excel J. One of the most amazing wonderful collections. So hazardously arranged but you can see where someone took a surfboard. Gordon holiday it out so they could put people inside or cars with secret. Compartments were people who made balloons to fly over the wall. It's a fascinating collection especially in terms of Cold War. History doesn't Nice job of addressing cold order history from the stamp on Berlin that it also digs into some of the Cold War history elsewhere so with over revolution in Prague so the rising Hungary so it provides a broader context. Not just what happened here in Berlin which I think is really really

The East German punks who helped bring down the Berlin Wall

"Berlin Wall. Couldn't keep all Western culture out. And it couldn't keep old East berliners down inspired by the music born over the wall by radio radio stations in West Berlin. A spirited and resourceful punk rock scene flourished in the city's east to more author of burning down the House that's H. Cia. US punk rock revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall joins me to countdown his East German punk rock top five tim first of all before we stopped. Stop playing the songs. How did punk rock find? Its Way to East Germany. You could pick up western radio almost the entire country of Germany and so everybody talks about the first time they heard the pistols usually on KNBR forces radio or BBC and that was just a moment that changed people's lives. It was so different from anything that ever heard. NFL Ika switches me sore inside them. How soon did it take root the first hearings that people had of the sex pistols? So I'm guessing this is seventy six seventy seven. How quickly did jump the fence? The first punk in East Berlin was a fifteen year old. A girl who went by the name major and that was September nineteen seventy seven and within less than a year. She already had thirty five opened on her and she was labeled enemy of the state and in her case case. That led to constant attainments interrogation and despite that a senior rounder. They wait until she turned eighteen and they arrested or tried her put in jail offer year and Stacey prison and that she slept with what's called the Berlin fabled meaning that when she got out of prison they took her mmediately to a textile facility in the middle of nowhere and she was expected to work there for the next next five years. And be sort of politically rehabilitated. And would not see your family or friends. She ran away almost immediately. Back to East Berlin was rearrested put back and Stacey prison for eighteen months and then at the end of that term ex patriot. Meaning they to ship off the West Germany to Take care of problem. This first strike is called. MFS which is the determine initials for the Ministry for State Security which is the study by benkhaled nominal since from nineteen eighty to about four or five years after ground zero of companies Germany. You can kind of see how the Stasi on GonNa go for conquer. Well they also make a direct comparison between the dossier and Hitler's S S which did not overrule on an explicitly. Anti Fascist in the music was their tool that is just how they fought dictatorships of the music. Wasn't they weren't trying to be tickly. Artful I don't think it was all about the message. And whereas other activists groups had a more reformist approach let's change Environmental regulations are some of the legal system. The punks just said screw. The system was bringing down and that was a really powerful message especially for bringing you to their costs. One of the interesting things about normalises day ended ended up going to prison for almost two years for their lyrics in nineteen ninety-three and I think what happened to them. During that process shows why the scene became so important as far as being a significant it can force in the revolution. They constantly were offered to go to the West. When they're in jail the wooden really rather just go to the west and the member the kept saying no? We're GONNA stay here and fight because that was quite coleman wave dispensing with troublemakers. Wasn't yeah exactly but two punks mostly rejected that and they insisted that they can stay and fight. And I think that basically the big Goan in in a place like East Germany was what happens when you run afoul of the secret police. The Sasi and the punks did that experiment. And what they proved was in going through the jail terms going through the payments going through interogations the blacklisting from jobs in schools the conscription into army units specialising political reeducation and the fact that they came back and kept fighting. That was a game changing revelation. Because it showed that you could resist and survive and that's deal the resolve of a lot of the opposition minded people within the country in that in turn allowed the protest move out into the streets worker then snowball into the big mass protests that we know from eighty nine. Let's move along out to sean climate. At what point to divide join the revolution. They're very early. Bantu and there are unique because they come from a little farm town in the south of East Germany and end and yet they became if anything. It's not really a star type culture but there was closest star system. We're in the eastern or Pengzi. How big was it possible to get? I'm guessing terrifically it couldn't record you couldn't play except in churches and get on the radio so yeah it was very limited seen it first and everything had to be done very personally. So you couldn't do mail wasn't security consent flyers for shows. The phones weren't security. Couldn't call friends say you're doing a Gig so it all had to be done through what they call the whisper network person to person. We're doing a GIG. And he told that friend Ephron told another friend but by eighty three they were getting concerts in the thousands. And that's when the stuff you really crackdown but Shaun calm created in nineteen eighty-four after they had some the trouble with this dossier has resulted crackdown. They created the song called clue which means sort of like the tomboys the people that get beaten by the police and it has a line in there. We are the people. We are power and punks from Leipzig claim that that is the source of the chant. That became the sort of signature chant during the marches of eighty nine lexus. which was the people? The
