Priya Parker on the Art of Gathering
"So my mother comes from originally banaras. Which is the sort of you know. One of the oldest cities in india and her father who actually would have turned one hundred today. Pass away about a few months ago. Her father worked for the indian government and so she and her four siblings traveled around india lot and when it was time for her to kind of get married she decided she didn't want to earliest not didn't want to have an arranged marriage and she can secretly applied to graduate school and the us and got into a few places and at least in that generation virginia versus iowa vs minnesota. You're sort of just you have no idea what is what and you just say yes and she ended up at iowa. State university begged her parents to let her go and they allowed her to. Was that unusual for sort of that moment. In time it was unusual that she was a woman so the us immigration laws changed in sixty eight and allowed for a changed from country and orc origin to family like unification and so it was after that that a lot of indians kind of came into the country and but the majority of the i kind of indian to come of those families particularly to graduate school. Were men so is very unusual for the first person to be a woman of a family and she went to iowa state and met my father who was born and raised in waterloo iowa. Though the family came from south dakota and a white american like in every way you look at his high school pictures and it looks like the kind of americana like prom picture but he had just recently come back from the peace corps. He peace corps and cameroon and then stayed an extra year and hitchhiked across the sahara and came back and didn't sort of in reverse culture shock and his teacher has professor at graduate. School or from undergrad said. Why don't you just come to graduate school with me and to kind of get over. Your culture shock volunteer at the international students office and i actually recently learned that culture. Shock originally meant when people came to their own country after having experience abroad so essentially mountain reverse culture shock but anyway
Record 29 Million in the Sahel in Need of Humanitarian Assistance
"That almost 30 million people in this a hell are in urgent Need of assistance? Yes, that's a rise of five million in just one year. Suffering is driven in large passed by ongoing Islamist violence. The newsroom's Peter Coffin told me more The hell is this broad stretch of West and Central Africa just south of the Sahara Desert. This statement by the U. N and some international charities has specifically mentioned Burkina Fasso, Chad, Mali, Neige and parts of Cameroon and Nigeria, and it said there are now a record 29 million people across those six countries who need humanitarian aid. 14 million are living at crisis or emergency levels of food insecurity, and included in that are an estimated 1.6 million Children experiencing severe malnutrition. Now that's a hell already faces challenges to food production. It's a new, arid place. The Sahara is expanding. But as you mentioned, the U. N has said that violence is really driving the increase in hunger. We know that governments in the region have been battling Islamist militias for the past decade. There are parts of the region under militant control. Just last week, we reported the Chad's president died leading his army against one of these groups, and in the past 24 hours, we've learned that a pair of Spanish journalists and an Irish citizen were killed in Burkina Fasso. But the U. N says it's civilians who really bear the brunt of the fighting. You have those numbers

The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers
"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes
Africa's Great Green Wall to combat desertification secures $16.8 billion in international finance Impact
"Now we have science writer. Rachel danske with an update on africa's great green wall project which will soon see an infusion of billions of dollars from the world bank and others this project. The great green wall is intended to serve as a bulwark against desertification of the land south of the sahara desert while at the same time supporting communities that live in this region. Okay rachel how're you doing. I'm doing well. Thanks for having me sure. This is a rape big wall. This is a big project. It's basically supposed to be this green band that spans about seven thousand kilometers across the whole hop of africa. It launched back in two thousand seven. Rachel what would you say. The progress has been since two thousand seven now to two thousand twenty one almost non-existent which is why they launched this new round of funding last month. There was an assessment that found that a fraction of the goal had been achieved so far and the goal is for twenty thirty so they realized that time was running out right throughout this piece. You make this really important distinction between planting a tree and growing a tree. Why is that so important to think about when you know thinking about restoring lands or planting trees to help prevent desertification. The first time. I heard it. I just thought well. That's a really good way to put it. And then when racer after another would phrase it that way that we don't plant trees we grow them because that's been one of the missing pieces in restoration. Efforts globally not even specific to the great green wall but just in restoration landscape and forest restoration. Generally there has been this focus on planting trees but little focus really on looking at what gets planted in the first place in paying attention to the species diversity in the planting material and making sure that it's the right tree for the right place. There's also last follow plus maintenance of the tree then there needs to be talked to someone in west africa who was saying that. He's traveled to so many countries throughout the continental. Seen so many trees planted. But where the forests. Yeah that's a really interesting way of thinking about it. Basically tree planting mania that's been happening has come from all these different projects foundations quotas. That are saying oh. It costs a dollar to put a tree in the ground and we're going to offset our carbon. We're going to green the world but no one's looking after these trees and making sure that they live beyond that for sheer gas so now that we know that. That's not a good way to go about this. There's actually a lot of research. That's found some of the best practices for restoration projects. What are some of the recommendations have come out from research. In the past ten years when paper published last year talked about ten golden rules for reforestation. And they think those summed up a lot of the recommendations really well in addition to just protecting existing forests which probably sounds obvious. But there's a lot of research on the new. I don't have the same benefits that existing ones do and it's hard to replace that beyond that involving local communities has been just incredibly important component that researchers are saying was not really part of the focus before because the restoration ecologists are focused on the physical research and they aren't trained to think about how people play into the picture and it's just so important to the survival of the trees because it's people who are planting trees and it's people who are maintaining the trees and if you don't have community by an investment in rye these trees there and interested keeping them there. The trees aren't going to last and the trees only have their benefits when they last going back to trees here for a minute you mentioned keeping old us in place for protecting them. What else is being looked at. So that's when using a diversity of species so that there can start to be restored. Biodiversity rather than just monoculture of trees. They're starting to be focused now. Also on the quality of the seeds. And what you're actually planting. And how do we build. The systems and infrastructure for collecting and improving. Seeds is going to be the most resilient seed for that species but then it's also about the genetic diversity because there can be inbreeding with plants. If you're not collecting from wide enough geographic area than you can start to sort of limit. The gene pool and that can be problematic. You talk about this example in ethiopia of a seat initiative a network that is supposed to improve the quality of seats. Can you talk about how that would work. And how it would involve the community. The provision of adequate trees deep portfolio or pets. Bo is a project in ethiopia that they're calling it a functional trees seed system. It's a multi-pronged effort. They're trying to develop standards for seed collection and sharing that. There's high quality seed that will ensure that the trees that are planted can be their most resilient they're developing maps for how to source those seeds they're trying to strengthen the research system the infrastructure and the the research system to improve seed quality and they're linking all of that to the people who will use the seeds seeds there's technical training for farmers and the local language and there are diagrams of how to store different types of seeds. They're really trying to get that knowledge to the community to farmers and local nurseries to scale up the capacity of local decentralized infrastructure. Is there another model project that people might be looking at to expand as the money comes in. Are there other areas. That are doing good things. Yeah there was one of their project that i came across the one billion trees for africa project. And it's led by this man from cameroon tabby jota. He talked about how he grew up in this thriving economy system and he went off to university and when he came back the lands that he new as a forest with no longer for us. He started planting marina cheese and cola nut trees and mingo trees and all these different trees that would restore some of the soil health that he thought had been lost but also produce food and income generating opportunities for people so that they would be invested in keeping the trees there. He called his approach. The contagion approach. Because it's just sort of caught on. He got a bunch of men and women in this one community to be involved in the tree planting the neighboring communities saw what was happening and he was very clear that it's not like a drastic change where their community sedley rich where they weren't before but the small benefits were noticeable and so the neighboring community wanted to do something similar. And so it's just been a word of mouth approach so as he developed this very grassroots success he's gotten funding from more international sources than use it to do the work on the ground in these different communities mostly in west africa. And he's starting to do more and more with the great great wall which seems very exciting so there are a couple of different findings that we talked about that suggests the way forward for this type of restoration project involving the community diversity of. They're planting making sure that they're not just putting stuff in the ground but they're actually supporting plant growth and the communities around it but another thing that comes up a lot in your story is now we kind of what should happen. Researchers have come to a lot of conclusions that are very useful. But then there's the practice what's actually happening on the ground and maybe even what will happen on the ground. What are some of the biggest impediments to implementing the results of this research. One interesting comment. That i heard was that the implementing partners people with the money don't have scientist on their teams. They don't realize how complicated it is to plant a tree into get it right and to make sure that grows the lack of knowledge in the right places and the lack of communication between the people with the money and the people with the knowledge and also the community who is going to be involved. Those conversations aren't being had something else that a here is the expectations that donors have. They want fast results. And that's not. How trees in general work. But it's especially not how effective restoration works because all of these things need to happen and they take time getting communities involved. There's a lot of upfront investment. That needs to happen. In developing all of this infrastructure and research systems with a lot faster to just go and say just plant a bunch of eucalyptus trees. Because that's what they have the seeds and planting materials for. There's a disconnect between the speed that donors want to see results and the reality of what needs to happen. I've seen that you've written about this project for years now. What do you think you're going to see if you check back in two years. I hope to see that things. Like the pats project and this other effort the one billion trees for africa a hope that they have scaled and and that they inspire or serve as models for other projects. I don't know where. I'm placing bets. It feels like there is enough of a resounding message coming from the research community about the importance of this and the importance for the effective ecosystem function restoration and the community development but also for the climate benefits and if the global fenders governments who want to plant trees for the climate benefits if they are serious than they will start listening to these researchers. This is like thousands of miles. Four thousand miles. That's like the us plus another third right east west a huge huge area to cover an across countries. And all these different people's. How is this. possible. Rachel i mean this is a global scale. This is a huge project. it's huge. It's huge and that's probably why it sounded like the great idea when they announced it. And why didn't go anywhere for ten years but it's the partner agencies that i've spoken with involved in this project. The great queen wall are really clear that it's an environmental program but it's also the social alliance when that's meant to economic development but also really impart some resilience. See into these communities. Who are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. That's why they're really ramping. Up this funding now because they see the value for the planet from a climate change perspective but also for the millions of people across this gigantic area. Pinks rachel thanks for having me.

Saving Sea Level Records: What Historical Records Tell Us About The Rising Ocean
"So lauren you sent me a picture of one of these century old title logbooks and it's so cool. It's really detailed. You can see where it says one. Am someone's written thirteen feet one fifteen. Am fourteen feet one inch in this. Really lovely old penmanship tracking tied. Did people really do this. Twenty four hours a day every day of the year they did. They had technology. That actually made it easier though In the late eighteen hundreds they developed an automatic system which had this float that rested on the surface of the water and then fed information to kind of a pen that recorded the movement so then people just had to read off the values and put them into the ledgers and this was done in other places to lake near hillary island. The port of liverpool also has a really long running title record. That makes sense because this was the era of ships rights. Watercraft was the way that people and things got around. Yeah exactly you had a lot of ships going in and out of port and so they were shipping companies. That had to keep track of the tide so it can be done safely two day. Some of those old records are archived at the permanent service for mean sea level which is an organization in the uk that gathers ocean data worldwide Andy matthews a data scientists. There told me the data are pretty reliable. You know most of the time. Those woman over on point is a little hand square school saying they. They sweet because the Tyja for was sick. You get little insights now with him. Everybody needs a sick day right. Of course andy says they're trying to organize a bigger effort to find these records. Because you know since kind of obscure they're hard to find yet but it can be anywhere these kind of things now in libraries from people that we all kaisei done coin. Doug well they are. Yeah this is quite the quest and an even bigger issue. I imagine is that when they find them. The data is still stuck on those pages. Yeah his colleagues scanned about sixteen thousand pages. But the numbers are on the page and they haven't been digitized so they're really not usable by scientists. They're trying to use computers to do it through character recognition. But i mean you saw that writing right. It's kind of like the script and the formats can be really hard to decipher so india's hoping that the public will help he recently put the images on zoom verse. A website and so volunteers can kind of in and and read the numbers. Type them up. I love this approach. I mean we're all bored at home looking for something to do this pandemic so why. Not some historical data as tree right. Yeah i mean data entry for a greater good seriously but to get into the nitty gritty of it. Why exactly is an important to look at data from the eighteen. Hundreds to understand sea level rise today an into the future right. What does that matter. Yeah right. I mean it has to do with how complex sea-level rise is because it's been caused by a number of different things. I mean i. You got glacier's melting temperatures causes them to shrink and that water runs off into the ocean and the same thing is happening in greenland and antarctica. Where there are these massive ice sheets on the land and there's so much is melting in gigi tons tapping increasingly fast. And i know that oceans are also rising because the water itself is warming up and hotter things expand so the water slick taking up more space. Yep you got it and actually. This is kind of cool. Sea level rise did slow down in the nineteen sixties and seventies because that was the era of dam building around the world. When you know when these big reservoirs were being constructed. They held back so much water. It was actually measurable. Ooh that is so strange and it really shows how we humans do impact the oceans. That's like a tangible detail of how quickly we can do that. It's a huge scale. But it's not really a factor anymore because you know dams aren't really being built at the same rate these days got it. Yeah anyway since one thousand nine hundred there's been about eight inches of sea level rise and by the end of this century. We couldn't be looking at three to six feet of sea level rise or even higher depending on how much carbon humans emits but. that's globally. The water is rising at a different pace depending on where you are. Yeah how exactly does that work. Because wouldn't the phil evenly kind of like when you fill a bathtub. And here's where it gets a little weird. The earth is slowly changing slowly getting a different shape lake. You know when you've been sitting on the couch while and you kind of get up and the cushion rebounds like morphs back into its old shape. Yeah not all couches but sure theoretically Well okay that same thing happens to the earth's crust During the last ice age Kind of started waning. Eleven thousand years ago. There was a lot of ice on canada and greenland super heavy and was pushing down the earth's crust since that melted the crust has been slowly rebounding. And that's actually not good for the east coast especially around the mid atlantic region. Because you know it's on the same tectonic plates as canada and greenland and when one side goes up. The other side goes down So what you're saying is where i live on. The east coast is on the lower end of the see-saw basically your thinking about that slowly. I mean the east coast is seen more sea level rise than other parts of the country. And then there's a whole bunch of other things that can cause that to you. Know ocean currencies big things that span hundreds of miles in the ocean. They cost the water on one side of them to be higher on the other side. You know so. Because of currents and gravity the oceans themselves are just kind of lumpy which is why sea level rises different everywhere. I am learning so much right now. You're basically saying is that sea level rise is local essentially and if cities want a plan for this and figure out what an who is at risk they'll need tailor-made information for their location. Yeah that's where these historical records come in. You know they reveal what these geologic processes and ocean conditions are doing in each place right right and i signed us refine their computer models. Which are those high powered ways that we get forecast about climate change. I spoke to scientists. Tomas friedrich's at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory about this and he said local records really matter. If we don't have that information for these see to be like a few feet off the local records of sea level so especially when we try to projects like high water levels of like extremes sea levels that's how we call them It's very difficult to to get an accurate picture of that but there is a big issue with a historical records. They already have almost all of the ones that have been digitized. Come from europe and north america So what you're saying is we gotta find more places. More hillary islands so to speak with historical sea level data all around the world. Yeah and this is a problem across many kinds of climate data. actually the southern hemisphere hasn't been covered as well with things like whether stations and other kind of data collection historically So there's just this big effort to find these historical records outside of europe and the us in argentina. They're working to digitize records from nineteen o five that were taken at the port of raise But to go back farther in some countries it means looking at the records of former colonial powers that took control because when countries like the uk and germany and france extracted. Huge amount of resources from colonies often through force. They did it largely through shipping colonialism stealing and keeping a record of it yeah pretty much so right now in france the national hydrographic service is digitizing these title records from dozens of their former colonies from madagascar vietnam Some of those records though aren't as long running you know they were gathered. As part of geographic mapping or you know to study an area where they were putting in port project. But i spoke to one person who is working with the french to stitch together a longer running record dating back through his country's colonial history marbella unika for seafood unique is from cameroon and he's a phd student in france right. Now he started in german archives. Because that was the colonial power in the late. Eighteen hundreds until france took control so he's gathered the french records as well and then he the cameroon records after it became independent in nineteen sixty. Yeah that's really interesting. Project and just a clear example of how the legacy of colonialism continues to impact science today. Yeah yeah i mean. It's digging through. His legacy is how he's kind of finding these records And there's really only one other long-term record in africa and that's from the car senegal so he knows cameroon could be crucial for improving global climate models But it could also be really helpful for cameroon itself. Nieto's just told me that. The country's largest city douala right on the atlantic coast and estuary and it's extremely vulnerable to flooding already. I'm just last year. There was a huge flood that displays thousands after really heavy rains. So when you add sea level rise to that it just makes the flooding issue worse. So he's hopeful that the historical records he's finding will lead to more detailed forecasts about just how fast the ocean is rising there because twala like other cities needs to start preparing now communities need to decide whether to move out of the way or build some kind of protection and
Central African Republic: Surge in violence and displacement
"And insecurity in the central african republic or see a are linked to recent nationwide elections have forced more than two hundred thousand people from their homes under two months.

Tennis Player to Watch: Evan Furness
"Guy. I want to talk about today. Who i think has been if not the best player one of the five best players at the it level since the start of the twenty twenty season. And that's evan furnace who you look at his career trajectory for those of you. Who don't know about edmund furnace furnace twenty two years old going to turn twenty three in the frenchman had a career high in the junior rankings of number thirty six so again. That's not gonna blow you out of the water right. Furnace was in this junior slam champion. Who much was expected of. Yeah he made a third round of junior wimbledon in twenty sixteen lost his devan. ac- pass. Yeah he made you know play. A bunch of the junior slammed had good enough results to become a top fifty junior in the world. But how many top fifty. Former top fifty. Juniors in the world have never heard of pro circuit. The answer is quite a few and you know for furnace. It was steady linear progression. You look at you know. He played his first pro tour match all the way back in two thousand fourteen when he was you know a i think sixteen or fifteen or sixteen years old played. One match. Didn't win it. You know you start to look at as he went through the years in two thousand fifteen he was able to play twenty matt or twenty one matches when eleven and ten. That's he's in twenty sixteen. He goes sixteen and thirteen. You know so again. steady progression. His first full season as twenty seventeen.

A four evan furnished during his first few seasons twenty eighteen he makes his first two It finals he bought ends up winning in portugal. Next up david gaz in cameroon. In the end of november he ends up losing two skandal mansuri than hong kong. He ends up knocking off. Julian lens makes another final during the twenty thousand nine hundred season although it is safe to say twenty nineteen you look at the results. Furnish was able to put together. That season You know relatively unsuccessful compared to previous years human thirty three and twenty nine during that twenty nine nine season now during that twenty nineteen season. I believe he also played his largest amount of challenge matches and challenger level events. He really struggled during one thousand nine hundred eighty play you know. You look in his career in his cert- currently six thousand nine hundred nine in challenger events during the course of his career during that twenty nine th season he played i wanna say ten challenger matches and i believe he went to in two hundred eight in those ten challenger matches so that's why his record fell a little bit. He started to try to make the jump at the end of twenty nineteen but then in twenty twenty in the midst of a pandemic given it was very difficult to find playing opportunities. And if you were in the vomit zone three hundred five hundred which normally you probably get into challenge qualities given the limited playing opportunities. You're lucky to find futures events to play last year. That's what a furnace had to spend a lot of time doing and guess what that is. Where evan furnished thrived. You look at what he has done.

He was always suggest to me. I haven't seen him for about ten years, but I managed to get in contact with him through a couple of other people when we were researching and trying to set up interviews full at tennis, relived series, particularly the French Open, so that we could tell that story, and you'll have heard an excerpt perhaps of this interview when we covered his run to that nineteen, eighty three French Open title, but the entire interview. It's just joy, and it will improve your mood, and if you do enjoy the into you tell your friends family, let your social media, and what's that group's now about it because it will just leave them happier than when they started listening to. It has Yannick Noah. I'd like to go right back to the beginning of your of your career, and even before your career and the reason for your career and. I believe a meeting with Arthur Ashe.

And they happen to play one day my club. During the clinic they decide. They played with the kids. And I played with Sir and Liked what he saw. I was slim press. You know he was my heroes. At the end of the clinic gave me a racket is racket. Head competition that worth like. Probably Probably what my parents would making every month. and it was you know it was like a dream for me to meeting. Dr Racket Sonya poster. Saying To Yannick I hope I'll see one that. So that was very funny. But the next thing that happened is after this story went to the French Open and he talked to shut. It was the president of the Federation. I told him that he was a little kid was playing. Or was in French. Speaking. Country and And I I. The scholarship came to friends because of author I played in niece for few years. And? The first time I played in Wimbledon That was nine years after we met was in Wimbledon because as for wild card. That was accepted and we play doubles on center court. So that was a beautiful story, so yes, the so mean Africa. And he was a big part of my story. Because and after that you know. For some reason, he was always like you know. Not Too far helping me when I was younger growing up, and then you know played with him at Wimbledon, the first tournament. Back in the days. It was called Super Seris.

"Span radio by some cars that I'll take one more question there was a lady just behind you I believe my name is Adelaide Mateus highland Cameroonian service so I'm leader of an organization to call and get back to you as a soul as a person coming from Cameroon I'm wondering how considering the situation going on right now in camera because there have been talks softly genocide grand on in the southwest and northwest of capital and if you look in the issues in Cameroon I think a broader strategic geographical location of Cameroon into golf of DNA hi I'm wondering why there was no mention of those issue I see that if if Cameroon does impresarios is going to be a major issue in the whole region and talking about as China was still we just learned recently that China has acquired a lots and lots of lands in camera and as a US citizen also for me that's a concern concerning now we do have a military how in Cameroon and you has has been really invested in the fight a danceable coal have around so I'm wondering what is the US position as the one well and all of the other political crisis in Cameroon our concern at this time well are you planning on holding another image meeting on this issue very soon thank you this is a repair she spread radio programming from Monday we've already had two requests for more conversations and I know we we have about twenty three minutes left if I'm reading without great and we've got a lot more questions to get through and ask our panelists to take the questions we've just been posed on education on women on faith and on the situation camera in the role of kind in Cameroon you don't have to take all of them and and you don't take any of them if they're not questions you you want to but who would like to start I'll pass I'll start by passing I'll start so obviously I mean I think the questions give us a real sense of the complexities of the issue of security in a in a sort of both local level national and regional level Justin speaking briefly about the kind of education I mean when I teach my kind of intra African Studies course one of the things that I emphasize to my students is it actually when you look broadly at African governments and and particularly local level investment education has been one of the major investments that that Africans themselves have prioritized Matthew cartoon of the St Lawrence university sent and vast gains were made even though the the starting so many people didn't have access to education at independence a lot more people do now it's not enough and I think it does contribute to instability there was recently a a report by believe the international crisis group that was talking about northeastern Kenya in relation to the al Shabab question saying how basically the instability has teachers of lead local schools and kids are not being able to go and get that education that's actually long term helping people be you know potentially susceptible to to these radical ideas and and recruitment to these extremist points of views so I I certainly agree that that education needs to be a priority in the foreign policy issues when it comes to the continent the the issue of conflicts Wilmer mention either Cameroon decide how or back in East Africa there is a regional dimension there and I think we've our panelists here I've talked about this on and off but the role that regional organizations play is really important and so if we think about the role of the African Union and perhaps the inability of the African Union historically to intervene in security questions there is a history of non intervention there there's recently been tried to address but not fully and I think the afternoon has played as prominent a role as it could have played in many thanks but there are bright spots right on eco lost in West Africa intervened in cultivar in two thousand I've been intervene in the Gambia in twenty seventeen and helped transitions there so I think that that shows a lot of promise in this in these regions if we think about women's voices for instance that's extremely important not just in you know counting numbers of women parliamentarians but in how they are being voice within civil society and so recently for instance in Uganda a very prominent female activist on Yonge he was arrested and and given an eighteen month prison sentence for writing a column to the president certainly I know of the officers association which I'm a member of has has been outspoken about that but regional issues has the Kenyan government sort of reached out to Uganda to express discontent of that kind of level of prosecution of an economic for freedom of speech I don't think that those isn't that level so that's just one example I think of many where you know you can look at those kind of individual cases but really think about the more broadly in terms of policy love so I will try to answer very quickly education extremely important but I think I think I'm sure also take ownership of your own policy we are no applications important when I'm guessing with head of state and government the knowledge that fox was being as fish ID trolls civil society and elections on old order thank those important for free can do I will get an important budget versus expecting external players to falls on trees that's exactly what I think and I have tried to avoid like with the city of that that's African going sometimes we did around African Union Iman older populace beds at different ATV I think the license on grazing offer kind you guys to invest more in education so we have discussed about this I had we had invited to prison of muddy did you attend when he was there is sort of personal money came here to do the topic was about this I had a and if you set up with this address to my her and I think too many of the finalists here are soul and we cannot speak enough the body so I think we have decided to focus on six countries today and even those six countries each of those phones with rob being a topical but I'm tired day of the conference all of the binder but but very good one you have to keep talking about those challenges because if they had a full meeting solutions for governments so into movement I'm Paul men and gender extremely important one that is an issue of which was in one of the recommendation I hide but I you know the time to elaborate but speaking but when I'm Powerman I think one of the very best way is to include women in fall my decision making processes such as what happened for example in one that's out of the car now and each OPL with fifty percent of the woman bottle I mean it and through in the US also member of parliament extra so we should not just to look at women and Garson's at he is very in a very five to ninety stick weight into it let's do things fall down you have to put up all we have to get it to work to ensure that everyone is whether a present date and I think the outcome of these these are likely to be bitter finally in terms of covering we can I think I briefly connected the situation with the book what Rahman now also highlighted the challenges and enough west and southwest region regions of Kamerun so yeah I seen the organs or slip from a piece called my numbers at all in focus of income around for some beside all in so my after a very long time so but yes defeat chiefly does issues our critic are but as you can see we don't even have enough time to speak about the six countries that you have identified quickly mind will present more than fifty percent of the African population so no one should ever be overlooked just briefly I think on a couple points here one on the education question a very good question and let me just say it's great to see one of the Ali fellows here this is a wonderful program that invests in young leaders from across the continent and also the organization you're associated with not too young to run is a really great effort in Nigeria to encourage young people to run for office in a country where there aren't enough of them so I would encourage everybody to check that out John Teman of the Freedom House estates is gonna make a lot of progress by telling leaders you should invest more in education and I think it goes in one ear and out the other I think the progress is gonna come when we invest in civil society organizations and probably people like you were going to agitate for that domestically who are going to organize around those issues were good demand those things from their national government and from there local government and of course in Nigeria has thirty six federal states they can be quite powerful themselves and that might be where the advocacy needs to be but I think those kind of vestments and civil society in national available ability to advocate for these things ultimately gets a lot more than whatever sort of rhetoric we might use about how other countries should spend their own money just quickly in a very important issues on gender dynamics I want to highlight what's going on in Sudan right now which is not gonna country focus for us but which also is undergoing a remarkable change one that is very much driven by women who have been leading the protest movement who have been taking great risks and who've been really been out in front in the change that we're seeing the story is yet to conclude in it could go in either direction you know the challenge there is that women when playing such a prominent role in the protests then things get to negotiations and it's all men.

In the end it comes down to when fica expanded the tournament in allow for more teams to get in. But what it did allow for these teams to get in are usually, unfortunately, with exceptionally European teams, the rest of them are the ones that are underfunded. And this is a problem as whole as you're going to get games like this, because there aren't enough. There aren't enough countries that support their teams. The level the England doesn't I'm sorry if your support at the same while the, the way that US in Germany and England are supported it is your responsibility to handle it the right way. And to move the game forward. Right. Because what today do now, your team thinks that, oh, that team was dirty, you know, our coaches would do one in to touch, you need to play faster. If you do not play faster, is your fault because you're getting kicked instead of blaming somebody else. So the now you, you are an agent in the game instead of being the victim in a game. The manager for Cameroon align Junfa called it a miscarriage of Justice after the game, one of his players rice fhu, Joe said we didn't want to play anymore. We just wanted the game to be over after the second goal there was kind of, at strange moment of protests. Let's focus in on England real quick because they are moving on. I think Cameroon were more dangerous against England than they were against New Zealand against Netherlands against Canada. How would be real work? Moving forward. If I was England, mum about how threatened they were today that back line. Right. Yeah. Yeah. That back that's centre-back pairing a bright and holding a slow and their cavalier on the ball. They like to build on the back. They're very Norway next site. But the problem with Norway is there left side is weak and it's been weeks since Nigeria played on it's been week when France played them and the Mindy is the left back and it has been the problem coming into the tournament. You don't see some opportunity in the middle of that English defense for Norway, I do. But the question is what Norway did so well against Australia was, how quick they transitioned and they transitioned so fast and expert long balls, especially Savak that ball was unbelievable to her sloven to give him that goal the first goal can they do that, because I think this backline can get caught. It's going to be a fascinating match up. It's the first quarter-final that is set in stone, and I'm very, very much looking forward to Norway. And England, of course, we still have one more match to talk about on tomorrow, schedule. That's Canada and Sweden.

"Like I think Graham Hansen is like she's just she's now a star while you've been talking about this is now the next starred. They have thirteen players under the age of twenty three. So this is a topic area and they call come the Norwegian league. And then they get drawn out people have criticized the top sorry not being as good, or, and people criticize Soberon for this style play. It's very like they wanna keep possession. In fact, all my Norwegian friends are like we're not going to go very far. We're gonna lose not the other, and yes, they have problems on the outside backs are outside backs are slow, and not good enough, especially Minta like you know how every single team attacks. They're left hand side. And there's a reason for that. Right. We saw France to it. We saw Nigeria do it, and my, my first tweet, I was like that left hand side is a problem. It's going to continue to be a tax. You're gonna see England. We assuming going to get over Cameroon because they are one of the top teams in the world. They're going to have imagined that against Lucy Braun Makita parish. So a very good team. But this team is just building like Germany as the seventh youngest team. These are two teams that are just getting started in terms of their dominance. Caroliina Graham Heinsohn used to play for Wolfsburg's. She's just joined Barscelona. So think about that, like Barcelona attack. If, if you will, you got Graham Hansen, you got, like a Martins. You have I'll show. All you've got a Tony Duggan in there, some of the stars that your liking of this World Cup, plus like half the Spanish national team is in there. So you know that, that, that Barcelona attack is going to be a fun, one to watch once the club season gets going over in Europe. All right. Enough on today's games. We still have the rest of Sunday's action to preview. We'll do that in just a moment. But first, this quick break back here with more ESPN ABC's coverage of the two thousand nine hundred women's World Cup in France. K Markgraff Sebastian Salazar time to preview. Tomorrow's matches we've got England Cameroon and France against Brazil England, the winner of group d Cameroon third place out of groupie. We remember their dramatic late winner against New Zealand that put them through Kate. This is obviously a match for England is the huge favourite where do you think this game will be decided? Ooh. That's a good question. Where does it come down midfield comes onto midfield there? So midfield, heavy right? It's a four three four five one depending if they're in possession, or not in possession. We got to see some different people, they do a lot of squad rotation that one England strength is their depth the other are there wingers Tony Duggan got back in Beth Mead. We saw provided a critical assist whether friend. Kirby will come in, or Georgia's stanway, who was excellent outside of the foot passes on me up Ernie. It was so good. Yeah. She was so exciting, and then the Catholic parish back. Right. So this is a team that in the midfield is so explosive that they are going to find Ingles to play around Cameroon and Cameroon recall. I mean there on that same emotional roller coaster there. One of the third place teams to get in. They won on the last kick of the game. It is a team that has a lot of confidence the team that believes in one another and a team that has gotten better. So it's going to be interesting. But they were they were the lesser of the group link thing about who they played, I think England is better than Canada. And I think I think England is. And those are two teams that Cameron struggled against you but dangerous on the counter-attack right off in in shoot who scored the two goals. Engand the number seven the number three in the number seven are really those wide players to watch for Cameroon. They're very, very dangerous and both of them like to cutting sometimes they can be dangerous..

"So that's something I'm interested to see and New Zealand obscene physically fit they pride themselves on their ability to put teams under pressure can Sinclair, who is one of the many weapon weapons, but everything revolves around her with Jessie, Fleming, standout, and then. New Zealand is competent they can come back. Yeah. I wonder about this New Zealand team. Right. Like they put in such a good performance in that first match against the Netherlands, and then they give goal in the ninety second minute. Yeah. I think when you talk about group plates, always like, well, what do you do? Next. Right. Like, how do you recover? That's a huge emotional recovery for the for New Zealand. Isn't it that disappointment has to still be lingering, but then you have to turn it into motivating and be like, okay, we can do this. We know that Canada is maybe more vulnerable in this area because New Zealand had their chances. They had core finishing. They could have won that game. Yeah. The definitely New Zealand had their chances. And I think Netherlands, very much failed to impress in that same question to you, that asked about Kenda for, for the Netherlands, they're going to face Cameroon, and it'll be it'll be obviously Canada against New Zealand. What is the Netherlands, have to do to get that front three going because they weren't really dangerous at all in the in the first match either. I think they're going to stick to what they. Really do go back to van and coming in. She gets subbed out after a poor performance against New Zealand. I think they'll continue to grow into the tournament, and they started slow in the euro ended up winning it in two thousand seventeen this is a team that needs a little bit of shifts here and there they found a way to win. And that is a huge confidence boost when you're not playing well, my concern with them is their back line. They played against the South African team in lead up and gave up two goals on the attack South Africa forwards are not collectively. When they break it isn't as fastest Cameroon breaks. So I wonder how they're going to handle that, because that back line is very, very slow who concerns you more with their opening day performance Netherlands or Canada orlands playing it's Cameroon was incredibly difficult. I think they might be the fastest team in the tournament. Someone said today Jamaica was I don't agree with that. I thought the way in which they break with so aggressive in so pacey that. I mean, there's a difference between like a player speed and team speed. Right. Like what a team does. Right. Like to make them may have faster players, but Cameroon may counter faster. It's gonna be fascinating to watch. It's going to be huge tests for Netherlands in wonderful opportunity for Cameroon because the way Cameroon places the exact opposite of the way Netherland plays. And Netherland does not wanna play team that place Cameron place. So US fans because we always, you know, in the end talk to an American audience. We do turn this back to the US women's national team. Here's why this group matters. If the US Wynn's group f they'll face runners up from group, b in the next round, that'd be Spain or China. But if the US finishes second in group f was dried, now we can affectively say, all right. That means they're gonna lose Sweden. Right. Because the Titus Sweden with goal differential. Looks like it'll go the US this way, that means they would get the second place team out of this group, and that would be there at this point, Canada or the Netherlands, severe the US who would you rather play their round sixteen. Netherlands, union say that very confidently. I just brutal matchup playing camps you'd rather void. Right. That rivalry weird stuff. It's it's they're just incredibly hard to play against actually. I think they're the best organized offensive side in the tournament by far they that they are unbelievable cannon is a good player. So I would avoid Canada. I think Netherlands, I think the wings can handle Netherlands, veteran interesting. I mean, all these groups are just getting more and more interesting. Every time a game day goes by. It looked it feels like you look at the standings in the morning and then you look at them in the evening and there's been movement..

"It really is interesting how the underdogs now don't seem to be as big of an underdog as they were even three or four World Cups ago. Again, that is due to the growth of women's football. Yes, it is not due to some of these federations. Let's always just keep that in mind. Let's move on to the second game from today's doubleheader, Canada and Cameroon. And it almost almost gave us another shocking surprise, again, Canada wins the match one nothing, but they come into this tournament as the fifth ranked team, according to fee for Cameroon forty. Six. So another huge ocean between these two teams. And yet the theme of the tournament, though, set pieces is really the only difference at least on the scoresheet between Canada and Cameron Kate, would you see? I salad Cana. They're giving up a lot of possession unnecessarily, but they're giving it up because they were put under pressure that they weren't used to seeing, I think I was almost kind of laughing in my head because when I don't mean that mainly but when you play Canada's the United States player, you know, the first thing you need to do is to match them in tally because they are coming for you. They're getting the ball. They get party you so be it. But they have this physical presence that imposes on you. And it does it does make you a little bit tentative, you're like, okay, I have to match that and you have to amp yourself up to be prepared for it. I saw Cameroon side that said alright. Can't here you go. And I thought Canada really struggled. And so the key when you playing a team that super fast and physical is you have to match that mentality to start with. And then you had to put the ball on the ground. If you have that capability to do so. And they struggled in that first half in the second. And half. I think they didn't see possession so easily upon physical confrontation. They are able to hold the ball a little bit more. And I thought they played better in the second half, and yes, they were awarded by can you should be can not being marked and Cameron almost scored in the same exact set up on the other side with the player not being marked back Cameroon was much better and more organized, and again that mental endurance piece, I think, is the biggest difference with these players able to play overseas and not in their domestic leagues because a lot of times they don't have them. And if they do they're not professional is, especially for Cameron and Argentina is they have developed a mental endurance to withstand, a lot of these moments that they didn't four years ago and definitely not eight years ago. How worried would you be from a Canadian perspective based on their performance that you saw today? And the fact that you could only get one goal past a camera inside which we should say, yes, they're ranked forty six in the world. They did get out of the Dacian be ranked. He's okay. But they got out of the group phase the last time. Around. So we rented sixteen they have they have players like we mentioned on yesterday show, who are playing all over Europe there, they're not maybe the super underdog. But, but how would you be about Canada? I'm not worried if you're Canada, because Kansas score. A lot of goals to start with right. Like they don't. I mean, they've had you didn't think they would dominate this game a little more easily a little more healthily than they did. I thought they would dominate the game more on the wings and they did. I thought the thing that I saw missing from Canada was a realization that combination play can unlock teams at our super aggressive because nor to be aggressive, you need to end -ticipant where the ball's gonna go. That means to me, you're watching the ball, a little bit more than you are maintaining your shape. Right. And also that takes discipline, when you are prepared side, that comes with months and months of experience of training together, which we know Cameroon came together, five months ago and has had limited preparation, right.

But there was one factor which deterred people from voting to go to Nigeria. It was what we call the Inca factor in Nigeria egos were the third largest ethnic group in Nigeria and dominated the politics in the east of the country and over the years, many egos it settled just over the border in southern British Cameroons in the fear of Ebo domination became a prominent feature of the campaign, the Ebou community income maroon was a very dynamic group.
