"Be the first consumer product to come from the area since the nuclear reactor catastrophe in one thousand nine hundred six. Don't worry though we're told. The vodkas lanka's safe to drink. Jim smith is a professor at the university of portsmouth in the u._k. He led the team of scientists that distilled vodka as part of a three year research project so i started studying the accident in one thousand nine hundred ninety when i did my p. h. A. and i started working ukraine and belarus in about nineteen ninety-four so we don various projects since then but this is for me the most exciting about three years ago we decided to look at the transfer of radioactivity into crops within the exclusion zone. That's the area that was evacuated of about four thousand square kilometers around this site after the accident and what did you find out about radiation transfer transfer to plants and crops they important to know is that radio activity in the exclusion zone barry's a law who's a few spas but in the rest of the exclusion zone a large proportion of radiation is no different than what you might get in some areas of elevated natural radiation like colorado in the states parts of india talks with the u k so that means that if you made bread from gray and it wouldn't necessarily be dangerous it will be a slightly elevated rhys so how oh did brewing vodka become part of the project well. We thought we'd go this gray and let's do something with so we <unk> and distilled it to make alcohol is every chemists knows if view distill something allows impurities in it. Stay in the waste product very few get through the final product so when we distilled it three times we couldn't find any any sonoma will radio activity in the final product so this vodka has a label called atomic vodkas. I said even have a company now. The chernobyl spirit company. I gotta say it does feel a bit like a gimmick tied to a tragedy but the noble spirit company does plan to donate seventy five percent of the profits back to covering communities around chernobyl i mean how much money would that actually raise for the people of noble well. We're very aware of if you go to the exclusion zone now you go to the entry point barreled tourist of the k._o. Selling to me will quite tasteless things solve skulls on radioactive symbols and things. That's what we're trying to avoid really league. We genuinely are trying to do this to support the local communities to bring some investment into the area the first year we're aiming for a few hundred bottles which isn't going to change very a much but we hope that in the future this might grow people might want to buy and try this vodka and we can make some significant profits to support the local vanden lands where people people are still living and unemployment's high people can't use the land so we wanna stop helping support. Finally jim mckee question. How does atomic omic vodka taste. I assume you've tasted it. I have tasted it yeah. It's a moonshine is a high quality moonshine. We really like only for jews. We did a tasting tasting at the state agency of ukraine for exclusion zone management working with on this project that bosses tasted it and they know they vote and what they said was said. It doesn't taste like a standard volker really liked. Asthma flavor at the moment is very limited. We've only got one boss the moment but we are hoping to get in small scale production well even if it tastes like moonshine. I still have to say thank you.

So remembering that, you know, there are nearly two million new infections a year even thirty percent reduction on that would be you know, several hundred. Words of thousands of people would be sped HIV infection. So we're talking about enormous numbers. Here. What is the reality though, for patients on the ground because the treatment and prevention path looks ideal from the outside, but there must be difficulties for patients that you've encountered testing for HIV and living openly with HOV is highly stigmatized still and just physically accessing K requires people often to take an in time morning or even a day of work. I mean, one of the things we're very keen to do is new how scalable this might be an, of course, whether it's cost effective and providing treatment for people living with HIV is a lifelong requirement, and that sort of links together some of the things we've talked about. But that's why people all very interested in kill freight's Ivy because all the medicines rate, a very very effective do need to take every single day for the rest of your life. And if you're a healthcare provider in a results limited setting where one in five if you'll population lives. With HOV that isn't enormous burden in terms of provision of caz when it's funding. So what else do you wanna see from cases? Like, the London patient that will give you some more. Hope. I mean, I I also work condition in the UK and the London patience is very interesting. As Richard says, it's exciting inspiring. This might happen that it is actually postal to curate IV.

And if one of the things that he thinks is right is going to hurt somebody else. I'm going to take him to task for it always. But I'm not going to try to obliterate him as a human being, you know, his music has been a trumpet for many, many people whose pain he speaks and sings and articulates in a very important way. Chin?

"Thank you so much for your interest. Finally today state funeral for George H W Bush got me thinking about a speech, he gave to a joint session of congress when he was president September nineteen ninety Iraq had just invaded Kuwait because of Bush's response to the invasion. He was about to enjoy a period of massive popularity. Iraq will not be permitted to annex. Kuwait. And that's not a threat, not a boast as just the way it's going to be. Speech was titled toward a new world order. The Berlin Wall was down the Soviet Union would collapse the following year. But was already in disarray by nineteen ninety both saw several objectives in Iraq with operation Desert Storm, and it's this moment in a speech that today really stands out for me. The crisis in the Persian Gulf is grave as it is also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times are fifth objective. A new world order can emerge a new era freer from the threat of terror stronger in pursuit of Justice and more secure in the quest for peace a new world. Order George H W Bush gave that speech on September eleventh nine thousand nine hundred eleven years later to the day the hope of one world order when give way to another closing fought for you on this Wednesday in the world comes to you from the non Bill Harris studios here at W H in Boston.

"And finally today a story that caught my attention this weekend. Maybe yours to Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have now officially tied the knot talk about warm and fuzzy so what happens when a heartthrob American singer weds a Bollywood superstar to wedding ceremonies for starters, one Christian and one Hindu and several other super exclusive events Javi such Dev is in Mumbai. So the wedding happened in Rajastan, which is north of you just give us a few of the spectacular. Details that you spotted. Well, you were watching the reports from Mumbai unless you got a last-minute invite Javi. No, sadly, I was not on the guest list. I actually have friends who work in the reading industry. And I've heard that everybody who is not a guest has been ost to tape over the lens of their phone camera. It's true. They're like only ten or eleven photos out there if they're out there they're coming directly from their bianca's. And Nick, I'm talking, of course, like I'm with them. But yep. Jonas's accounts and their designer. So it was happening at the Royal residence in jobs for one of the largest private homes in the world. Also, a hotel three hundred fifty rooms. And it sounds like there was a lot going on for the Indians as well as the Americans that was even cricket match for the families and pajama party and have Indian media come up with any good, married. Couple names for Nick Jonasson Priyanka Chopra I've been saying the young cub. But the worst one is Nick Janka, it's just so unsexy. A little weird Nick Janka cookie shoddy which is strongly it's to Branca's wedding is the more popular war trending hashtag here. Well, it seems the only scandal are the fireworks that went off during the wedding what happened there so last month. India celebrated Diwali festival of lights, which is also the festival of noise. We set off fireworks. And it's usually quite loud and quite smokey. And because we have an air pollution problem. These cream court crackdown on fireworks going off. So everybody is really up in arms that Priyanka Chopra who was on TV last month asking people to please refrain from bursting firecrackers because she has asthma. It's really unhealthy at scares the animals, and here, we are at this wedding where the fireworks are incredibly large grand and noisy and definitely not safe, by any standards. So hurry, outraged. This is the big wedding season in India and in Pakistan, do couples try and outdo each other these weddings. And is there any way anybody could outdo Priyanka Chopra Nick Jonas as wedding. Of course, you have to keep up with the Joneses. But I don't think they could outdo this Lund. The bedding season will go through December a little bit into January and wedding planners, and all the peripheral sort of hospitality and service industries. This is the time they do make their money. There are weddings every day. Sometimes more than one at the same venue in the same timeframe. Well, the weddings will keep up with the Joneses. We're keeping up with Jonas's and the choppers Javi such Devin mom bye. Thank you. Thank you. We're going to leave it there today. I'm Marco werman from the non and Bill Harris studios here at W H in Boston. We'll be back with you tomorrow. Our public radio international..

"You're joining the company of many great artists and leaders politicians who've gotten the roads, Kris Kristofferson, former Senator Bill Bradley, President Bill Clinton. What are you looking forward to most at Oxford? What do you want to do? So the thing I'm most looking forward to is. There are these really really broad foundational questions that every political. Society has to define for themselves. Some of which are who are the members of of your community. So in America would be who's American. How are we going to define membership? Is it going to be just citizenship or we can include some other aspects within this idea of membership? And to whom are we going to provide the full benefits of membership? So these are really kind of even maybe theoretical question. But I think in America, regardless of who the president is that's where we have to keep the focus because if we don't define those questions for ourselves any semblance of a fair, and just and procedural immigration system doesn't exist. And so that's why I wanted to spend a couple of years thinking about what that means. You know, I it sounds like being a DACA recently is going to play into what you're going to be thinking about it Oxford. Yeah. It's doubtable that my life experiences a doctorate sapient feeds into all that. Because if you're undocumented this social condition forces you to engage with this thing called the immigration status. You're always thinking about. Questions. I've always known. There was something stranger off about immigration status and reckoning with that as a child and coming of age forces you to engage with those broader question, and I want to do it in a formal sense when I'm at Oxford. It is a tough time for Dhaka recipients that Donald Trump still wants to end the program. Meanwhile, a federal appeals court is keeping him from doing. So I'm guessing these days some dreamers don't even want to announce that they're dreamers. What is your advice for other DACA recipients just about keeping hope alive that opportunities still exists despite the negative news about DACA? Yeah. And it's really important question. So few remember where your roots are that's where you can derive your strength. So for me, I always go back to my dad and the restaurant, and like, I feel his hands right there blistered, and and really hard. And when I think about my dad and his sacrifices that always keeps me rooted in Y M doing all this to begin with the other thing. The reason why I'm optimistic. Spite all of this is because positive social change doesn't always come from the top. And so like thinking about positive social change in a way, that's not just feeding into the political discourse. I think is important that there are things that we can do outside of our political practice that can really change some things Harvard University student, Jen park is the first DACA recipient to be awarded a Rhodes scholarship. Congratulations. Again. Thanks very much for coming in. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me. What a great story wishing Jin all the best at Oxford. And that's going to do it for us today.

"Long-term Christopher Belus owns the Cran more in built during the civil war in north Conway, New Hampshire. He's worried about how things will change his two kids grow up individual trees. Don't get up and move of course, but the classic New England forests and ecosystems as a whole may shift over time as the climate changes and even in the here. And now Bella says, the milder climate is a mixed blessing. They may be good for my foliage business, but climate change is not necessarily good for my winter business. North Conway is a ski town and like all businesses around here. Bellas also relies on cold. Snowy weather, and that's a worry as winter's here become steadily warmer and less predictable, but back to the fall and the leaves. Yeah. Tea Draper. I. Co botch co owns the snow village in a bed and breakfast with mountain views in Eaton New Hampshire. Says more unpredictable seasons combined with weather apps that we all have in our pockets. Mean, people are waiting to the last minute to book rooms and then they all drive up for the weekend or they come up for a day trip or they'll come up for one or two nights. All of this can make her life stressful planning, staffing and supplies on short. Notice it's far from an existential business threat. Nearly three million tourists came to New Hampshire last fall from around the world, but Cova sees warning signs. We serve local maple syrup for breakfast, and I want that to continue. But they're saying that the Maples are a little bit distressed and that's up setting. Maple syrup is a big part of the local economy. The trees aren't just pretty to look at when the leaves change. When the weather gets too hot. It's harder for the maple trees to produce sugar. Warmer weather is also allowing insect pests to flourish putting forest at further risk right now. The changes are slow. Moving. Still coach says, we all need to be paying attention. We noticed. Settle changes, like maybe with different birds here, but it doesn't affect enough people to may be recycled a little bit more changed kind of car they drive or whatever else. I mean, we live up here because it's beautiful and we are surrounded by nature and you kind of fall in love with the maple trees. And so have countless others right now, New England's leaf peeping economy remains robust, but at some point climate change and it's slow. Moving impacts on the forest here will take a toll that is unless the world takes drastic action soon to tackle the problem for the world, Jason Margolis Eaton New Hampshire. And on that note, a quick preview of Serie we'll have for you on Monday about climate change and tiny Alaskan town. Shish Merav is tightly knit community that's quickly being eaten away by the sea residents wanna move and the Trump administration says you're on your own. Yeah. Well, they'll, they'll be saying the same thing to Miami pretty soon. Right. Let me what happens up. There is an important bellwether for what's going. To happen in the rest of the coastal areas of the United States, the latest in our series on the Arctic and climate change from the threshold podcast produce with support from the Pulitzer center that's coming up Monday here on the world. And finally, do we take music requests? Yeah, you bet. We do. Supporter of ours. Reema Hyder listens to the world in Boston and wherever she travels to around the globe. She tweeted at me the other day that one song captures current mood. The same mooch he's had since French Algierian rocker Rushie Todd died a little over a month ago and remain. You actually gave us a great idea mood music music to reflect your mood or maybe music to adjust your attitude. Right. I know a lot of people who definitely feel the need right now. So what is your mood tweet it to me the song I met Marco werman and we'll try to make it to air global mood. Music requests. My friends remiss request today from a live album of Russia, Taha along with singers lead and foot del. This is the track Abdelkadar.

"Here's the world's Caroline. Baylor team would Mejuto lives in Charlottesville, Virginia. It's so obvious to him why young people need to lead the fight against climate change almost laughs when I asked him about it, definitely young people are the most accurate climate change. If we just keep going as usual like, oh, it's just no more than crummy changes. No real. I don't know if they'll be a planet by the time. Forty. There's clearly some hyperbole there, but the twenty year old college student does worry about the world that currently are leaving. His generation Migita was on the organizing committee for tomorrow's main March in DC. More of their big demands is that elected officials stop accepting money from fossil fuel companies. It's sort of the same argument by the puck, Lynn kids who were protesting against the NRA. They use climate March was in the works before the school shooting and parkland Florida. But organizers say they were inspired by the March for our lives. Earlier this year, especially we have both asking the same thing, whether you a bunch of foia lives or watching for like a livable planet, we just throw on politicians to be held accountable by corporations, went into how to come by the people who let them power. Medusa was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo where he knows a mining industry feeding western markets has had a big environmental impact if has really shaped the way that I view climate issues. It's not just an American issue, but it's a global issue that we all as the world have got to address because it's a global issue. The March is organizing team have reached out to young people worldwide, who planned sister marches in the UK Kenya, Brazil, Germany, the Netherlands, Nigeria, and India in India's drought-prone Rajastan region ram cho- dri says they're not marching tomorrow, but planting drought resistant trees, connecting this plant and tree planting. That is like much for us here in the US. Younger people are more likely to worry about climate change than older folks, and they're also more likely to want the federal government to step in to limit greenhouse gas pollution, Bella lack the fifteen year. Old co organizer of London's climate March says, she sees the same trend in the UK. By the time we old the planet is going to be at the west is I have a beaten, I think in my generation, I see in them passion and desire to protect. But many of locks generation can't even vote yet. Say this much is really the means of giving us a voice to speak up. The world was captivated this spring when parkland survivors lifted their voices. But months later, there's been no change in national gun legislation. Lack says she doesn't expect global climate policy to change overnight either. We already talking about the March next year because we realize that sometimes a singular event contract people. But if they keep seeing that, we do have optimism and hope then maybe they'll change their ways in realize that was serious about this. Marches are scheduled for tomorrow in twenty one US cities organizers have spelled out lots of actions. Young people can take themselves from buying less stuff to growing some of their own food, so they don't have to rely entirely on politicians to make a change for the world. I'm Caroline bealer. And it's the weekend probably felt at times we wouldn't make it to Friday, wouldn't we come to you from the non and Bill Harris studios here at WGN agent Boston.
