He was the first power figure that united the world of football says kantor everyone regardless of their nationality wanted to see him play because of his magic. He made argentina famous around the world. He made napoli famous around the world. It's very hard for any reader to understand what he meant for. Napoli the very poor southern city in italy that no one paid attention to and suddenly this kid put napoli on the map playing soccer and rebelled against the industrial north and beat the powerhouses of milan and event events. An inter. who were the more important and powerful teams not only in italy but in the and europe especially maradona hailed from a shantytown on the outskirts of buenos aires and made his professional debut with the club. Argentinos juniors when he was fifteen. I was in the stadium for his first game. Says in reggae mail. A florida psychologist. Who grew up in buenos aires. Now that's become a myth. A million people now say they were there. But i really was.

He is the greatest player of all time says cantor. He played in an era much different than today. It was more physical game. He was butchered in every single game that he played and he excelled. He had the ball glued to his left foot. His center of gravity was so low. He was just a magician with the ball. An artist poetry in motion.

They love him anyway. They love Donald Trump, because no one else loves them. The country they built the country their ancestors fought for over hundreds of years has left them to die in their unfashionable little towns, mocked and despised by the sneering half wits with finance degrees, but no actual skills who seem to run everything all of a sudden. Whatever Donald Trump's fault he is better than the rest of the people in charge. At least he doesn't hate them for their weakness. That's Tucker Carlson, trying to explain the trump phenomenon.

Is the entire media against him? Yes. Was the Russian collusion hoax? Something close to an attempted coup? Yeah.

"Floor. We had a balcony and it overlooked one of those parks. I kind of call it a pocket park. It was probably a square block. We had never seen anything like this. This park was used from sunup to sundown and on the outside of the park was a walking path where people would jog or walk dogs and then inside there was an exercise area that was used by the younger more athletic person in the morning and then middle of the day. The local senior would come out and use the same exercise equipment. It was the most remarkable a neighborhood to be able to watch James. How realistic is it that we travelers can go and connect with that slice of Buenos Aires that Karen Talking About Well as very realistic. They have great Little parks in the renaissance. They were created most of them by a Frenchman in the end of the nineteenth century and whatever hardships US ours has endured in the past Say fifty years or so. They have always kept up their parks. Very well so So corks are very unadorned. Meant to the city Karen. Thanks for your call. Thank you happy. Travels sits calling from Atlanta. I said have you been bonus areas in? What was your big memory? I have been to blame us. Iris and it was fabulous in the same way. That James Gardner is is talking. Our son had taken a graduate internship in Chile and we so we opted to explore Argentina and we love cities and we're so blown away by the European and reach dance culture and vibrant color. Everything about it. One of the things that made it particularly special for us was that we got to go to the Cathedral where Pope Francis had been a bishop believe before he became right that was his Perish before yes we felt like we were there just at a moment in history when things were going to be changing and the other Min Mini delightful experiences but the reckless cemetery for me as someone who loves art and architecture it was just such a an extraordinary place to to go in and to get some feel the history the pride all things which richly adorned it so James's at the major national cemetery in the city then or what does the wreck collector. It's it's not the biggest cemetery but it's The most interesting and strangely enough for cemeteries. It's an extremely happy place. It's probably the main tourist. Draw the one thing everyone who goes to win us. Ours is going to see it doesn't have any greenery strangely enough. It's not like a usual cemetery what you have instead are. I think something like five. Thousand discrete mausoleums Right each of which has done in this extravagant architectural style ranging from gothic to classical to Baroque to modern All around it. You have bars and restaurants one of the best views you can get. It is from the McDonald's across the street. There's a mall and there's McDonalds on the fourth floor. And when you look down you overlook this cemetery so you having your quarter pounder and just kind of marveling at the beauty cemetery spreading below one of the interesting things we've learned. Is that much of the wealth that can be seen so vividly in the wreck. Cemetery actually could be traced back to refrigeration and since Argentina was such a beef producing country. The fact that refrigeration could spread that beef all over the world. Many many families gained enormous wealth. And so when you look at the a cemetery you see based on coal storage kind of that's true is is is one of those first countries in the world and they have on the pompous these vast plains they have cattle and the cattle reproduces itself every three years at doubles in size. Say how this enormous wealth but until the introduction of refrigeration and the eighteen eighties. They couldn't really exported. There was nothing they could do other than to sell the hides but with refrigeration suddenly they could send that to the rest of the world and it was that which not only paid for the mausoleums in the cemetery regulator but all the great avenues all the Great Parisian architecture that you see there comes from refrigeration. I think he can say oh so. It's the city the beef built You can see that. By the way they have great beef if you're a carnivore for carnivore of right. And it's inexpensive beef. Very good and inexpensive said. Thanks for your call. This is travel with Rick. Steves TALKING ABOUT POINT. Azeris with James Gardner. Who's written a book on the city? James when you think about the city beef built and this sort of WANNA be European capital. I know your passion is architecture. You mentioned the architecture and the city is largely quote derivative. Can you just give us a quick little? Walk down the main boulevard and describe just from an architecture point of view what we're GONNA see. Let's say you were to go to the plus of the Marsh. Oh the main square. What you'd see is first of all the Cathedral where Pope Francis formerly archbishop that glow Yo use to preside And that's a neoclassical building from eighteen. Twenty two more or less than you have the Kosovo Zodda Pink House. Which is the seat of the executive branch of the government? This is associated with Evita Peron and Juan Peron. And that's where the president is now and it's called the pink house because it's literally painted pink. That's an early stage of the bows are architecture from around eighteen. Eighty two then actually facing it. You have something called the Cup below. Which is one of the few remaining structures that has anything of the colonial period? The oligarchs of the generation of eighteen eighty tried to abolish any trace of colonialism. That means throwing off their Spanish Yard. Their independence states to eighteen. Sixteen the structure. The Kabila there now is a much smaller version of what was originally there. It's been cut down by the way it's been cut down to create this vast avenue cold. The demar show the May Avenue which is Beautiful Parisian Avenue. It's literally to the centimeter the same size as Baron. Osman's avenues that was intentional. Obviously and decree h this great prospect. Where you see on one side. The Cossutta Zodda the pink house and a mile to the West. You see the Great Bose Art Congra- so the Congress building which is equivalent to our capital in Washington. Dc and you could argue.

But I writer Wendy. Simmons returns to travel with Rick. Steves to help us look forward to our next long airplane flight in coach as a photographer and contributor to Huffington Post. Wendy's traveled a lot so far she's been to eighty five countries. She doesn't read the overseas flights at all in fact she joins us now with her tips on enjoying your next flight. Wendy thanks for being here. Sorry my so you write that long haul. Flights can be more fun than short ones. That's pretty good trick house. Oh I travel all the time as you said and I've come to really not lake. Short flights feel long only. They're not so I can't get anything done and instead you know. I look at long haul flights as uninterrupted me. Time just ten twelve hours of time where? I don't have any guilt that I should be doing something else and instead I can use the time to do all the things I wanna do that. I never seem to have time for one on the so that takes a little bit of intention and thinking ahead. I do the same thing when I'm planning a trip to Europe and I know my departures a week out. I've actually got a little list of things I'm going to do during the flight because I will get hours of me time. What are some of your meantime activities that make that flight actually blessing? Well it can be fun stuff and it can also be stuff that I just have to get taken care of that. I never have time to do so. For example it's a great time. I listened to a lot of music. I love music and I am always frustrated. That can't find the song I feel like listening to her playlist and that type of thing so it's a great time to clean out my tunes library and get rid of music. I don't like or create playlists. It's a great time to go through my email inbox and just finally cleared out. You don't have to be online to do that. Those things take a long time in our lives are so busy and never get render so tedious and who wants to do that on weekends. You know for me. A related thing would be Hall the piles of photos. I've got packed into my iphone. You can just go through in down. It's actually it's the perfect time to do all the stuff you don't WanNa waste time doing during the weekend or at night. Also you can just do something that you would normally invest time in other ways. Absolutely you know I'll to things like if I've always wanted to read about the history of someplace or I've been wanting to learn a few key phrases in the language of whatever country I'm going to you know that's the perfect time to catch up on movies or season of television shows all season of whatever or watch a movie that you wouldn't have exactly those are the exactly the kind of thing so it's really about mindset or a movie that your partner wouldn't WanNa see with you exactly are the ones you'd be so embarrassed ask anyone to watch with you. If you're anywhere else I love to walk up and down the aisle and just look at the way. People are spending their time and see how they're really getting into all that trash on the screen. I mean I've watched some of the most embarrassing movies ever on airplanes humiliated if anyone knew but it's the perfect time and I think you know people go onto airplanes dreading it and if you just you know if you make a few simple changes and you bring a neck pillow and you dress in layers and you take your shoes off and you have a glass of wine and you sort of look at the airplane is your you know your personal private space albeit. It's not comfortable but it's not permanent. I know people that would they would travel less in order to go first class and makes no sense that ultimately. I don't know how much more I think you'd pay five or six hundred dollars more one hundred dollars hour or something at least just sit in first class and just makes no sense to me because what you can do is you can creatively work to make your coach seat. Feel a little more elegant. And there's ways that I always say I would rather sit in coach with my noise reduction headphones than to sit business without them because the rumble of the airplane is. It's just exhausting to me and I can have my own little cone of silence and when I put my headphones on nobody talks to me and I do have that meantime I remember this interview that the CEO of Spirit Airlines did one time after a poll came out ranking them dead last in customer service and seat size and space and all these other statistics and he basically said listen. We get you from place to place really cheap. You can spend the money where you're going and I thought you know what a brilliant response and that's how I look at it. The airplane isn't part of the vacation. It's to get me to the big Russian affordably. Say money to it up and uncomfortable for thirteen hours so I have an extra thousand dollars when I get wherever it is that I'm

Australia GP Cancelled - Heres 5 Times Other Races Were Halted
"One's twenty twenty Australian germ-free was efficiently tussled after McLaren member tested positive for corona virus. This Wednesday twenty Chinese free was already postponed after the strain of novel. Corona virus was believed to have originated in the country. Bahrain status is currently unknown. While the spread increases globally further races may be cancelled but these were not the first counseled races in Formula One. So let's take a look back at a few cancellations from Formula One's past and dig into the reason why each race dropped off the calendar after it got there. In the first place the most recent example a race cancellation the twenty eleven bar. Ingram pre was scheduled to be that year season opener but on the fourteenth of February. Twenty eleven a number of uprisings took place across the Middle East and North Africa known as the Arab spring as numerous citizens protested against oppressive regimes and the poor quality of life with us in mind embar rain. One such country experiencing civil unrest. The race was postponed until the end of the season. The plan was to reinstate the Bar Ingram pray to the thirtieth of October and in the process move the Indian grocery to December slot but unhappy with the logistics involved on the seeming disregard for Human Rights Implications the Formula One teams association photo vetoed the plan barring GP officials then subsequently dropped any plans to host the race that year instead wasting for its reinstatement in twenty twelve. The twenty twenty Chinese impre- is not the first race in China to be cancelled. The nation was penciled in Fritz inaugural F one race. Back in one thousand nine hundred nine back then then F ONE SUPREMO. Bernie ecclestone announced in nineteen ninety eight. The Joe Hi International Circuit was to host a Grand Prix on the twenty first of March. Which would make it the second round of the nineteen ninety nine calendar just months after its announcement. F. One announced that the Chinese Grand Prix would no longer go ahead as the FAA had been insufficiently impressed by the facilities at the second which needed work. If it was to appear on the following year's calendar however this never happened in. China had to wait until the two thousand four season to get its first Grand Prix. How'd Shanghai? Well they feel like the Joe Hi circuit describing similar to the Spielberg sects in Austria. We never got the chance to see it in f one action another race supposed to be on the nineteen ninety. Nine calendar was the Argentine Grand Prix but unlike China it had been a mainstay on the F. One shut you off the Argentine greats depression which began in late. Ninety eight the organizers of the race with feeling the pinch and were unable to much the funding that China promise to host a race but as we've previously mentioned the Joe Hi race was cancelled. The Argentine Grand Prix was reinstates the calendar with Provisional March Twenty Eighth Slot pending talks with parameters Formula One. But by the end of January the Argentine Grand Prix was also knocked off the calendar after formula. One was unable to come to an agreement the race at the Buenos Aires Sec. It was deemed not financially viable as several upgrades were requested but no ultimately produced the nineteen ninety eight Argentine Grand Prix. Then was the lost f one race out in Argentina and will they efforts were made to organize a street racing motto. Plateau off at the twenty thirteen season. It never came to fruition. Asterio at nineteen ninety-seven having been on the calendar for over a decade. Esther was one of the more scruffy venues on the floor. Shedu and the EPA had been battering the circus owners for years to make some upgrades but when the FAA formally requested a few safety changes ESTA ZONA scoffed after they've been on the calendar for years without having to make renovations why start now but in response. F. One cude is often pulled esther off the calendar replacing it with the Herath circuit in Spain. The caveat was if astro could make the safety changes required the FAA offered a loss on the calendar on the ninth of November. But the fixes weren't made in time while Ferrari and McLaren would believe to vetoed an eighteen race calendar. How things change as it stood. Herath hosted the season finale. And we know how that turned out South Africa. Nineteen eighty one. Despite the backdrop of apartheid South Africa was due to host the season opener of nineteen eighty one formula one season however the year began under the cloud of political wrangling between Governing Body Fisa led by Yomiuri Ballast and the Construction Association. Fokker led by Bernie Acoustic Visa. Wanted to change the date of the season opening race. Kyle Lami to April the eleventh two months after the original February seventh day. That had been previously agreed. Foam consisting largely of the British teams on the grid also had an agreement with Kyle Lamis Management for the February date leaving the two governing bodies in a little bit of a pickle. The race wasn't council per se but it was run as a formula libra rice rather than a formula one race meaning that it didn't have to adhere to the one thousand nine hundred regulations. We should heavily restricted ground effect dynamics so the focus teams ran it. Kyle Army with all the bells and whistles in a non championship race won by Williams driver Carlos Roitman but the race was ultimately stricken from the F. One record beforehand but with the threats of Krona virus rapidly spreading worldwide. More races may be cancelled their season. We'll have to find out if that's truly the case

One in two Venezuelan families on the move face drastic choices to survive
"This is Matt Wells at U._N.. News continued flow of Venezuelans out of their countries to be expected U._N.. Humanitarian said on Friday highlighting the many risks faced by families on the move such as begging child labor and even so-called survival sex in in an interview with you and uses Samuel Mungai U N Refugee Agency spokesperson. It's th Russell explains that one into families have encountered problems on their perilous journeys. Well it was a survey that was done about just under eight thousand families and we're asking and the about what they had gone through on the journey from Venezuela to whatever country they were in and I think what we really highlighted is about half of the people we spoke to the veil. Their family members suffered specific risks because maybe if the range. Because of their gender because of all the needs all because they'd had to resort to what we call negative coping mechanisms that essentially means resorting to things like begging sending their children to work in some cases view of in some cases resorting assaulting two survival sex many of them reported having to use up all their savings to make the journey to ask for loans so we're identifying what the risk thing going through from that point of view but we also asked him what kind of experiences they had bottleneck journey and they talked about maybe facing robbery being assaulted facing intimidation and threats so that's what we were looking at what they had faced on their journey and how many people have left Venezuela no well the calculation. which may have is the three point? Three million Venezuelans are currently in countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. That's a calculation. That's made approximately since about twenty fifteen. Globally overall four million Venezuelans are outside their country entering but that figure goes a bit further back so they're not all refugees and migrants to neighboring countries are struggling to shelter the influx of migrants. What has the agreement achieved so far well? This was a regular meeting of what's known as the Kito process which brings regional governor together to discuss issues. I'm one of the aims of the Kito processes to elaborate coordinated responses because it's very important that the treatment the documentation that the different countries give to Venezuelans is coherent and doesn't differ too widely now that. Meeting the fourth meeting of the Kito process was in Buenos Aires on the fifth of July. They agreed a roadmap to really drive forward this regional response so I would say it's early days yet but one of the things that both we and the international organization with migration highlighted because we worked together. Venezuelan situation is the agreement to harmonize their processes to have documentation process to really work to strengthen Louis access of Venezuelans to basic services aid groups that helping these migrants and refugee people well. There are many partners. The refugee agency works with the region response plan itself involves ninety s partner's different agencies NGOs civil society. Society it will vary U._N._H._C._R. in conducting the survey was not just U._N._H._C._R. staff it was also partners carrying out the interviews according to standardize model so that the information can be gathered can be put into a central database and can be analyzed in order. I have much better informed responses to help the governments themselves in their decision making in how to help Venezuelans and the host communities where the Venezuelans silence of living is there any local authorities that helping out is the local government ticket initiative on top of the international community in helping migrants but we would say everywhere the work of municipalities have local governments is absolutely key because they are the closest. is to the local people who live that the local people who are hosting these Venezuelans so the role of municipalities is absolutely key. Were highlighting this across the world the U._N.. Refugee Agency has a program. That's called cities of light and two hundred plus so far have signed up for it is whether the municipalities really committing to helping refugees within their midst and also working to support the host communities the local people who are helping the Venezuelans as well look in terms of the solution to this people well. I think what we're looking at is a continued flow out of the country. The situation is clearly evolving now something that's been happening for the past few years so some of the Venezuelans will be.
The return of Peronist politics in Argentina
"Argentina's, Cristina Fernandez decay. Now is back at the full populace president left office in two thousand fifteen with the country on the brink of economic collapse. But if posed to be believed she has a good chance of returning to this in October, as vice president alongside her namesake and former chief of staff, Alburto Fernandez Jonathan Wheatley discusses, how history may be repeating itself in Argentina with a correspondent Benedict. Mander. Living with the. Going seattle. Get new put them meet there in, then they're gay three hundred fourteen dollars. We realize as individualize see noise when a p really says dune associated that was Cristina Fernandez decay, Schnur extolling the virtues of collective action. And so there can be no individual triumphs. In a society based on the kind of social contract that she advocates, but her parents policies left the country in dire state. Then it can you give us a picture of the economic situation, when she left office? Yes, when macrey took our. He find an economy with twin deficits, both in the budget and candidates, central Bank reserves running on Mt. And so you basically had a country that was under budgeted balance of payments crisis at the same time you had very high inflation. They no one knows exactly how high is they still publishing reliable statistics. There was no growth speak of high poverty. In the order thirty percents. I mean it was in a bad way, and it's proved very difficult for macrey to correct that situation. I what he's done. I was one of the big things he's done is turns the IMF and Argentina's being the beneficiary of its biggest ever bailout fifty six billion dollar package, but the IMF is still deeply unpopular in Argentina. Was that? Yes, I mean, it's like a comic book villain Argentina. I mean, it's had a very checkered performance in Argentina over the past sixty years. There have been more than twenty programs pretty much all of which have ended badly. Most recently, the two thousand one crisis was probably the west all that ended in the biggest ever sovereign debt default at a time. Anyway, huge devaluation that triggered very high employment. Those sibling arrest people shot on the streets, and so on having was disastrous. So it's understandable that people have bad memories if the funds engagement in the country. I Fono money Taddeo. This realm integral Montreal remove scenario Torello necessarily casino much of Argentine was brought to a standstill last week by general strike in protest over the government. So stereotype measures are we just had one of the organizers, Kellyanne Rupak Anini describing the IMF is being the Bermuda triangle, sucking in salaries work, health and education? So things apparently haven't improved for the poor under the reforms agreed between the current president Mauricio Macri in the IMF. What are people telling you about the hardships? They're facing at the moment. The first thing that people say that they just are able to make it to the end of the bone, and that's those that are employed, right? Because there's a huge amount of releasing Jones, but those that are earning salaries which not keeping up with inflation, finding it very difficult to pay for just the basic items food, prices have been up extremely fast and utilities as well have been rising several times over. So people just. Yeah. The month and that is obviously, causing significant social unrest. And you'd be not speaking to small businesses on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. How are they putting up with things the slums and the working class area's been particularly badly hit where there are lots of factories and workshops which not very competitive and been competing with impulse China. The defended the local markets, a lot of have been closing down. So that's leading to mass unemployment in the poorer areas of the city, which is causing big problems on against those are large part of the electorate, exactly. That's the heartland of Christina Fernandes occasion. And she is likely to do very well in that part of the electric ended makes up about a quarter voted. So it'll make significant difference. Deana. See my settlement brother shit. I mean goon Dino. And. Taylor. That was Christina Fernandez running mate, berto Fernandez. No, relation saying it rally that his coalition would eliminate Argentina's debt without making any Argentine suffer the cost with promises like this, how, as Mr. macrey can fight fightback. Well, it's not easy. The big thing that maybe hadn't his favorite, the beginning was that he was supposedly better, managing the economy, now that is not really proved to be the case or at least not over these four years. A lot of people, and I find themselves in a worse position night and they were four years ago. So he's having to look the other areas to sell himself, so recently, they've been inaugurating public works, major infrastructure projects, roads bridges sewerage signs, rather present, but these things do make a big difference to another people. And that, having that will help and also you have to remember that there are no infrastructure projects under the previous government that they're started. We wouldn't have. Completed. So this is also a reminder of the corruption that supposedly happened under the kitchen as you mentioned corruption that Benedict. What about all the court cases that are going on what bearing will that have on the election? Well, that is the million dollar question Argentines have known to vote into power politicians that have been accused of corruption in the past. So it's not gonna be the Bill and endle-. It will certainly have an impact on the margins. I think that polls show that the NFL this is a supporters. Don't actually believe the corruption charges identing that's going to affect that sector of the vote, but in the middle ground, perhaps it will and the extent to which it does could even decide the election another problem that obviously Argentina faces is that foreign investors very quickly lose trust in the country, and we've seen the huge devaluation of the currency last year again, this year, one of the problems that we often hear about is that Argentines themselves. Don't trust the currency. How do you fix a problem like that? Well, this is one of the great dramas of Argentina, and it's not clear to anybody otherwise. They might have six up more ready. It'll take years, perhaps decades of macroeconomic stability for trust in the currency to return or even appear. So the first thing that needs to do is kill inflation, which has proved incredibly hard on democracy. He thought it was going to be very easy, but it's not higher than it was when he came to power looks like it's beginning to go on a dine with paws, but it's going to take a very long time to get rid together at any then I think we'll people say, they're encouraging Argenta on politics have been compared to a circular firing squad. Is there any sign that, that passing could be halted in that Mr. macrey could engage with more moderate parents elements to win a consensus for his reform programme? Well at the beginning of this government, he did manage to cooperate with the mall, mudder elements apparent ISM and was able to pass some important. Reforms, more recently, the last year or even two that has not been so successful, but doesn't no reason why if he does win he couldn't do that again. But the polarization of Argentine politics is a huge problem. It was something that macrey promised to fix and he hasn't. Debatable as to why. But this is going to be a problem going forward without a diet. And why has Christina finance chosen to run for the vice presidency rather than as president this time? Well, you need to. That I mean it's impossible to get inside the head, but some people suggest that it may be because she thought she couldn't actually win. But then again, it's not clear that the person who is running in place on both the mandates will win either. So it could also be that, perhaps, even if she did win. She thought that she might not be able to govern efficiently at least as she might have liked to how she did in previous governments, which were current terrorized by the FTA amongst others is the populist politics. And as we all know populism doesn't mix very well with all sturdy, and that is the situation that we're in at the moment. So she might have decided to pass the buck. Thank you very much. We will certainly be watching with great interest as we get closer to the election. That was Jonathan.
Understanding 'Gender Impact' in Canadian Construction Work
"Might not say what is a gender lens have to do with building this new highway or this new pipeline or something. Well, there are gender impacts. When you bring construction workers into a rural area, there are social impacts that was last year and Buenos Aires, and you may remember some of the immediate reaction. We don't think that you need to have some kind of gender-based analysis when two thousand people come to create jobs to work to support hotels and restaurants as small businesses and families. It's unbelievable to watch. This prime minister refused to acknowledge that his arrogant and self righteous comments are an insult to tens of thousands of Canadians who work in construction in our communities across the country. Here's what that all comes down to whether or not you support pipelines and dams whether you think Justin Trudeau is a modern progressive example for the rest of us or a fake feminist who doesn't understand the real world. These construction projects which employ thousands of out of area workers for months at a time to have an impact on the communities that host, and yes, some of that is a positive contribution to the economy and local infrastructure, and yes, some of that is negative and when it gets bad it can get really bad. There are a couple of ways that we can measure these impacts one is with numbers, and that's being done. The other is the old fashioned way. You send a reporter he talks to everyone. And he tells us what he found today, we have both of those things. So we're going to try to answer the question. What are the real costs of Canada's worker camps? Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Kyle Edwards is a reporter from mcclain's who spent time at a massive worker camp enforce Saint John and British Columbia. Tell me why you went to fort Saint John. Well, it started in. I think it was August twenty eighteen there was this story out in Manitoba. After kind of this arm's length and agency provincial agency in Manitoba had released. A report they're called the clean environment commission, and they had released a report that had gained a lot of media. Attention, basically detailed allegations of sexual abuse. Dating back to the nineteen sixties at a work camp up in northern town called Gillam, which is just east of a city called Thompson Manitoba, right? And the it was involving several first nations communities one in particular was the FOX like creation, and there were members they kind of detailed these horrible issue. These horrible stories of sexual abuse at the hands of. Manitoba hydro workers one person in particular had said that the RCMP organized gangs back in the nineteen sixties. And so it was this very explosive report. I guess I guess you call it. And it it gained a lot of media attention in in Manitoba last year. And so we were talking about it at McLeans. And we want us to do a story we actually discussed the idea of doing a story on industrial camps last year around the time the report came out, and so that was kind of the time that was kind of when I started thinking about it. And I put in some f allies and started asking people if this was an issue that they're really concerned about and that took me to fourteen John which is where it's a city that is known for having a very large transient population. Which is which basically means there are workers that go there for work. What do we know about what happens these camps, or I guess what's kind of the? The popular stereotype around them. Because the the reports detailing what allegedly happened in Manitoba is not kind of the only one of its kind. Yes. So in thousand seventeen a report from this organization called or this consulting group called the Firelight group. They released a report that basically raised a bunch of warnings about when there's a particular camp near in an area by other communities. There's a increase in issues like sex trafficking in the sex trade. There's an increase RCMP data and the report showed that there was a thirty eight percent increase in reported sexual assaults in Saint James fourteenth, James BC in two thousand and eleven and there were other issues like an increase in S T is in a particular area as well as other concerns regarding rampant drug. Use in alcohol use in in in a lot of these camps. And this is has been really as I kind of looked into it a little bit more. This was something that a lot of people have a lot of scholars and academics. Researchers had they've kind of looked into this issue for many many years. Yeah. And and it just seemed like it was nothing new and a lot of people kind of knew that there were a lot of social impacts to industrial camps. So that's really kind of drove the story. So you went to Ford Saint John to essentially see what the situation was like on the ground, and and what kind of social construct springs up around these camps. Exactly enforcing John. There's a huge strain on. So there they call them. They call it the shadow population. A lot of people that's a term a lot of people use the province of British Columbia is not really sure how many people are going to northeastern BC for work who live. Who live elsewhere who reside permanently? Elsewhere, right, and one of the challenges with that is s- things like health services and social services, the those those sort of things are funded by the province based on the resident population, and without taking into consideration, the thousands and thousands of people that most nearly double the actual population. When I got there. A lot of women spoke about a lot of indigenous woman, I spoke to you spoke spoke a lot about racism and sexual harassment and use and it was kind of alarming. Really? So can you tell me about some of the people you met in fort Saint John and some of the stories you heard so I

Global news twenty four hours a day. Day on Aaron take talk on Twitter, powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries. I'm Markus Karlsson. This is Bloomberg Stingray who knew let's talk about the trade picture Shelly. Chinese officials are said to have begun preparing to resume imports of US soy and liquefied natural gas Ellen g is the first sign confirming President Trump's claim that China had agreed to stop buying some US products immediately for more we're joined now by Bloomberg's executive editor for economic Simon. Kennedy. Good morning, Simon. This is important this development, isn't it? Because for a couple of days we've been scratching around trying to find one is the Chinese take on. What was agreed in? Buenos Aires finally do seem to be getting some official statements. I mean beyond the the initial one we're getting a little more detail. We'll flesh on the bones. A slight amount one of the issues apparent in the early days of the week was the president. She was still doing this glue Tor in Portugal and backspace than there was this feeling in Beijing. They couldn't communicate or couldn't commit to things before he and his entourage. It actually in Argentina turned up. And then today, we're starting to see a few more details. The government promising to implement the the, oh, no one's quite sure. The actual details of the deal, but that promising to implement whatever they are. And yes this sign that they will. Beef up imports various products that have kind of gone on the wayside which is quite important for Trump. Soybeans a big a big product for for some of the Trump state. So this is probably bring some clarity to what markets are starting to worry about yesterday was where was what was China's Trump was because tweeting China administration waiting fishy to combat is how instrumental is a deal in there. Sort of recovery or China's growth getting back to normal. I mean, they had been hit really hard by the trade war. So far hasn't they probably versus China versus the US. I think China's felt the pinch a bit more. What you saw was this change from the government and the central Bank which began the talking about de leveraging bringing stability to their economy that way, then the trade warheads an and they started to introduce some some forms of stimulus to to provide a flow may be under the economy, and you start to see various ways that there's some support there. What about the latest data? I mean, we've had a PM is PM is and all sorts out of China haven't we do we do we get this sense that the that the Chinese are going to do more is going to be the next step more stimulus would we get the sense that they're doing enough to turn the the Chinese PM story around? So we see the PM is now for manufacturing just on the edge of contraction just above the fifty. Mark which signals the difference between growth and contraction. So that's obviously a concern to them. I think what you're going to see from the Chinese is more of these kind of piecemeal stimulus stimulus that provides key supports for key parts of the economy. What you're going to see at least yet is this a big bang stimulus. You've seen in previous episodes of weak growth, where the central Bank of the government of together come to the rescue with sweeping fiscal support and monetary policy easing. We've not seen any rate cuts the headline level from the Chinese. And I think that's probably a. A need or internal need to avoid doing that. For the moment Simon. What's the outlook for the trade war now because we in a story, I think a couple of days ago saying that the truce risks extending and not ending the trade war is this the kind of thing that we're going to be living with throughout the Trump presidency. Yes, this is a permanent trade war, and it could could run beyond Bill and Trump if if he maintain if that approach finds find support remember, there's a lot of people in congress who are not very happy with China doesn't have to be Donald Trump or Republicans who on happy with China. They might disagree with the way the White House is going about things, but there's a lot of support for cracking down on China. When you look at. If we get details, as we hope there are a lot of big differences that will not be closed anytime soon. Go to the very heart of the structure of the Chinese economy. When Trump wants China to crack down on intellectual property and things like that. He's asking you a lot of things he's asking. China continues to maintain its a developing economy developing economies tend to to borrow the success of other economies. That's that's the history of economic growth. They were treated in a certain way, unto WJ rules, isn't it? I mean, this isn't just about tariffs anymore, as we know who suggest IT cybersecurity is

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.

Russia's Vladimir Putin that planned meeting fell apart around the same time that the president's former lawyer pleaded guilty to lying about President Trump's former business delays in Russia. Here's one thing. The president will be doing. He is expected to sign a trade deal with Mexico and Canada. What does this summit say about US relations with the world's other large? Economy's NPR White House. Correspondent timbre Keith is in Argentina's capital. Buenos Aires either town. Okay. So what does this signing ceremony supposed to be like this trade deal is the theory the celebration of the completion of negotiations? This is the first chance that they've had with all three of these leaders in the same place at the same time to sign this new NAFTA known as US MCA, but it's not a fully resolved situation there still questions sort of separate from it. But not entirely separate about US tariffs on steel and aluminum, and also it's really not a done deal yet because congress and others need to sign off on it and president of Mexico is like literally has one foot out the door, although we should note this is fundamentally NAFTA again, right? This is changes to NAFTA, including to the title and some of the labor and other provisions, but the idea is to maintain. Rather than eliminate this this free trade agreement the president has criticized for years. Yeah. So the president says I tore it up and we have a new one in reality. It's it's really new NAFTA. It has a the contours of NAFTA. It has some small changes around dairy around labor some modernization, but it is fundamentally the same thing, but it has a new name. So there may not be full agreement. I included whether it's gonna stick. But US MCA the president keeps saying at one point recently. He said US MTA like YMCA and started saying. I've actually been thinking of the village people Tam, but I wouldn't have brought it up. Had you not brought it up. How much does a guilty plea in the United States loom over this meeting for the president Michael Cohen did plead guilty to lying about Trump organization business contacts with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign while Russia was aiding the president's election, in whatever way that it could. I guess cancelling. The Putin meeting tries to get that out of the picture for the g twenty but how much is it still there? Oh, it's definitely still here in that. President Trump still has a Twitter account, and and he's been tweeting about it. He says, oh, I get it. I'm a very good developer happily living my life when I see our country going in the wrong direction, console is I decide run president and continue to run my business, very legal and very cool. And that was that was the first tweet of the day. But but he and and that is like right before going to a meeting with president Macri of Argentina. So the president is talking about it and thinking about it was watching Fox News, Sean Hannity last night soon as he got in and tweeting about that. What do you suppose it does to the president to have this news story looming over him as he prepares to for example, have dinner with the president of China and talk about their trade difficulties? President Trump would never say that it fathering him. So he does tweet about it a lot and also in his first meeting of the day with president Macree. He he said something like, you know, back when I was a civilian and I did development project.

I'm not gonna fill in the blanks because I'm joined by my colleague, and co-host, and friend. Gordon Chang who has much more to say about the unless he has a new article in national interest in which he is advocating a resolution to this conflict in Buenos Aires that challenges China's business model, and that endorses Trump's so far very straightforward confrontational ks that China must change or there's no future in trade between the US and China. That's what the tariffs are. Gordon? I read your article very carefully because your position at this point is that there is no deal in Buenos Aires, and that that will be a good thing in in the United States. If there is a deal in Buenos Aires that will be a bad thing. Have I read you correctly. That's right, John. I don't know what President Trump will do. But I do believe that there should be no deal. And the reason is the only long. Term solution to the problems in China intellectual property theft, as well as trade violations is that we disengage our economies. And at this time, what is mentioned in the article is that there are a number of manufacturers who are looking at what's going to happen at the g twenty. And if there is no deal. Oh, a no deal on the horizon. They're going to start to move their supply chains out of China. But if they think that there's going to be a settlement that they will stay in China. So I think that this is a perfect opportunity for President Trump to accelerate the disengagement process. We welcome our friend and guide on manufacturing and trade. Alan Tonelson, Sunday blogs at realitychek. Allen, a very good evening to you. Okay. High noon here they are sitting at the table. Does China have a way of satisfying, the Trump administration your measure before those two hundred billion dollars of tariffs accelerate good evening to you? If Trump is slow. Lord about this. And if Trump really understands China as well as he claims, he does, and I kind of think that he does. He'll recognize that. There was absolutely nothing. China can do to satisfy US demands in any real world way. And I say this mainly because even Z Jing Jingping. Had an epiphany and decided to repent completely and told Mr. Trump, you know, you're absolutely right about this intellectual property theft, and this technology, extortion, and these trade barriers of these legal subsidies. We're going to stop it now because gosh gone we we want to change. There would be no way for the United States to reliably verify any of this. How could we really hope to understand what's going on? Inside China's bureaucracy, which is vast and secretive, and we know that that US corporations operating in China have a long history of being very very afraid of raising any public of Jackson's to any of China's electoral property theft, or even technology, extortion, which is slightly less extreme, but still flatly illegal, and in fact, violates a bilateral US agreement that was reached which back in the early nineteen nineties. They just don't complain because they know they're going to get their age chopped off Allen, first of all I gotta say that you're the first person who I heard talk about disengagement of the US and Chinese economies. And when I first heard it, I thought you were extreme, and as you know, we've had a number of arguments on this show about that. But I have to say, and I don't like doing this. I know it's hard. Actually, it is hard. But I had to say that that I do agree with you that the only practical solution for the United States is to disengage because everything that we have tried has failed negotiations. WTO engagement heads just all absolutely failed. And the stakes are essential for us because this is the question of technological leadership in the twenty first century. So we've got no choice, but do this. So I wanna say thank you for talking about this persevering when a lot of people would have caved in the question. I guess is. And this is maybe a little bit unfair. But just to look at what's going to happen at Saturday's meeting with President Trump and see Jinping. Do you think that there is a way forward for President Trump in some sort of arrangement with the Chinese or do you think that that's just not going to work and shouldn't work? Well, actually, those are those are several different questions. I do think there was a way forward politically precisely because. American leap public opinion, the mass media politicians, etc. Have such a poor understanding of what China is all about. And what these negotiations are all about therefore their definition of success is any kind of deal that four Stolz tariffs for whatever length of time. They are just closing their eyes. And hoping like heck that if enough time passes, that's so cold temperatures will cool. And the problem will somehow magically go away. Let me let me just stop you there. Because you know, I think that, you know, you're absolutely right almost everybody believes that agreement would be a good thing. But you know, clearly, the Chinese are not in a position to honor any agreement. So that's why I think that disengagement is the only solution and also let me make a prediction, and I'm probably going to be wrong about this. But I would think that in about a year from now there's going to be a substantial portion of the American public and also of policy elites who are going to come to the tunnels in position that yes, we need to disengage. And in fact, well, thank you, Gordon, and I I can think of several very concrete reasons for this one. There's no doubt that US China military tensions in the South China Sea and elsewhere in. East Asia and southeast Asia a going to continue rising and the prospect the odds of some kind of military incident. However, accidental keep rising too, and that's going to completely inflame American public opinion. And you know, the one thing about trade is that by trading with the Chinese. We are giving them the money to build up their military to to commit all sorts of crimes against humanity in the northwest with the week. We're just enabling all of this extremely dangerous behavior. And and in so many instances, we've given the Chinese the technology either voluntarily or because it's been extorted or because American companies operating in China have put themselves in the unavoidable position of being victims of China's intellectual property theft. Yes, on the one thing is that I can understand why President Trump's upset at General Motors. But the point is this not the job of Mary Barra. The CEO to further the national security interests of the United States. It is the job though of one Donald John Trump to make sure that the incentives for General Motors are not to export jobs to China and his not to take Chinese production and sell it into the United States. This is Trump's job and Allan Allan. We have. We have to remark. It's because we need your thoughts in these last hours. Something changed something the Federal Reserve indicated going to a neutral status perhaps as early as twenty nine thousand nine not the four rate hikes. We expected that may have been a trigger. But in any event, the market rallied sharply from an oversold position. Does that signify at areas that Donald Trump now has a healthier looking stock market? I think that going to be a very crucial element in the president's thinking if only because he has so determinedly use the stock market as a. Major measure of his economic record. And so if for the time being the specter of of further major stock market declines is off the table. I think he's going to feel freer to hang tough with China because the financial penalty won't be nearly so great. Sounds pretty good to me. You know, let's let's I don't normally cheer on the financial markets. But this is one time where it's really important to do that. And so even though some pretty ugly people on Wall Street are gonna make money out of this. I think that this is in the interests of the United States that we actually have that strong market. So that Trump can sit down with siege in paying and tell them where he gets off way. We'll talk to you Monday Allen after we have some results from Blerta's areas. But right now restate your position in thirty seconds. What do you believe we'll be resolved at the dinner table? If it happens, nothing will be resolved. Although it's possible that some very general cosmetic state, then to try to calm, whatever waters or perceived to.

"Twenty summit in Buenos Aires. We're joined by Diane Swonk, chief economist at grant Thornton here in Chicago. Welcome back to the noon business hour, Diane the market's really move today on the feds. Statements. Tell us what we heard. Well, I think the markets move because chair Paul J Paul actually said we're very close to neutral to that tipping point where the economy is neither accelerating nor decelerating and that gave financial markets some comfort that maybe the said won't have to raise rates as much as some had feared in two thousand nineteen. I think that might be a little over read of what the chairman is trying to say because many was in the spectrum of us within the Federal Reserve, and how they view not only the neutral rate, which something is close to three percent something is higher than that. But also whether or not it will be appropriate to go beyond that neutral rate once they get there. So certainly financial markets there taking some solace idea that maybe close to what they think is an end endpoint while the debate within the fed is nowhere near as certain financial markets are just in time today pal said, the fed was a long way from neutral a month ago. And today, he said the interest rates are just below. The level that would be neutral and Wall Street likes that it's it's fed talk. What what does that mean to consumers? Well for consumers. No matter what the third team's pretty committed that it will raise rates in December nineteenth another quarter point, which is a doubling of short term interest rates in the last year. So we are going to see higher rates. No matter what given what your power has said today, and at least one more rate hikes in twenty nineteen. I think we're going to see much more than one more rate hike in twenty nineteen that we probably move to two to three rate hikes in twenty nineteen that said. The site is now also getting very cautious about how it tragic doesn't know that it's close to neutral. It's going to need to calibrate whether it wants to go above or below that. And it's going to be very would it cost data dependent? It uses this word data dependence whenever it's uncertain about where they're actually at an uncharted waters. Don't know the exact neutral rate they have a spectrum of us on that. They gotta corral the cats and come to conclusion on that. And so in doing that, but going to be I think some solace for Wall Street and for consumers is that rates are going up, but that could be more cautious in their rate hikes in twenty nineteen. And they were in twenty eighteen there is some talk that the president may seek a trade truce with China at the twenty eight trade truce is that good enough. Or do we need some of these tariffs to go away? Well, it certainly would be a step in the right direction. And we do need some of the terrorists to also go way. The question is whether or not the administration will. Move forward with the twenty five percent tariffs on another two hundred sixty seven billion dollars in goods from China will Mark up basically all the goods coming in from China at a very high tariff level, and that'll be a big change for the start of the year. The president said they just to do that. We don't know there's a lot of mixed messages coming out of the administration, whether this is a negotiating tactic. But I think one of the things that's very important is even if we had to pause button and don't add a lot more additional tariffs at the g twenty which would be welcome news to maybe take a little bit of tension out of those trade tensions that we're seeing with China. There's still a long way to go here and getting to an agreement that everyone's happy with China. I think it's very important to understand that we're still on the geopolitical situation where we don't like a lot of what China is doing. And it's not clear that China be willing to compromise in a way that we would like it and given that huge gap geopolitically, and we're trying to want to go in its dominance in the world. That makes it much harder because trade agreements are automatically diplomacy as well as economics. Yeah. In really getting them to the point where they agreed that. It's time to make some changes in. It sounds like some of these tariffs are not really at least at this point not having the intended effect. They're not having any effect in terms of getting China to fully capitulate. And in some ways, there is this issue of, you know, president Xi in China in his role and holiday scene preceived at home is he seen as he's being bullied. There is a real pride issue here.
