Dead, that's in South Africa despite relatively few cases in Madagascar that country has been under lockdown for weeks and the shopkeeper his feeling the strain. Yes I don't know folks. The people are struggling. They have no more money. It's not easy because people have their rent to pay. Many of them have lost their jobs while this situation doesn't bother our rulers, but it hurts. Overall the continent has seen a slower rate of infection and deaths than other parts of the world, and some credit goes to the continent's experience with previous viruses. People say there are success stories in Africa stories, the Qatif those of US elsewhere a thing or
"capetown" Discussed on Blind History
"In terms of the scientific literature around this, they said it came from a triple reassortment of bird swine and human flu viruses for the combined with Eurasian pig flu virus. That doesn't sound gross to you I don't know what it's. Maybe it's worth referring to what worked besides quarantining in those days going through all the periods of history of people who survived often with ones who just had stronger immune systems that goes without saying a lot of people who kept themselves cleaner did a little bit better than the ones who were filthy, and there's a wealth component to that as well, but people generally had no idea. Idea until very recently of what the origin of these diseases were, and they had all kinds of theories in fact during the bubonic plague, people thought that Jupiter and Saturn had lined up in the heavens, and there was some kind of what they call them. A conjunction of the planets at that stage, and they blame that for the outbreak of the bubonic plague, which is crazy, but When you don't have any onces you jump to the next best conclusion, young man, maybe at work is maybe was stronger than the disease. Yeah I think some good ideas of come out of these plagues well when Europe was so depopulated, did kind of put a stop to a lot of stupid walls, and the big policies were forced to rebuild at home, rather than seek adventure abroad and tried to conquer territories, which they could no longer for. FOR TO KEEP IT obviously depleted the Treasury's of countries that we're collecting tax and the labor force was severely curtailed for technology to the foreign. It's actually driven technology while you look at this one that we're dealing with the moment I mean the way we're doing. This episode of blind history is only because when a to be in contact your in Capetown. I'm doug normally. We would do an episode in studio together. That's not possible in technology. To do no chance. And you know the things in the end the once again. This is not my area of strength but the. Airplanes in the sky, just think. What a difference make from pollution levels in other spinoffs of this incredible to see. Ya I. Don't know that there's any one of these that has a happy ending. Except that now. Of course, we've developed some scientific methods to arrest the spread of these diseases and to kill the bacteria responsible, and if it's a virus to sometimes cut down the efficacy with vaccines, but obviously what Fleming did in discovering penicillin was tremendously instrumental in helping us fight, bacterial infections, and to pasteurize things, and to be able to to clear disease out of food, which was also a major source of disease for a lot of people up to then.

Filling the gaps
"I'm Steven Seagraves. Joined by Seth Miller and Fayza Mood Gentlemen. How are you doing? Well Yeah are you. I'm feeling a little better. Not One hundred percent. But I'm getting there. Just good this. This episode is being recorded solely with your right year. Yes yes so. I have no since of Stereo should we? Should we record him on? Then that's what it feels like the spoiler alert. They're all mono gotta time production and that's where they always end. We should edit this so stevens voice only comes. I left to come out of the right now. The problem is I can't do that. You can do that man. Let's let's think that'd be mean to our listeners. Think it'd be really peel off for sure A. Let's just start off by talking about what we're doing to fill our time. I'm working from home Seth I'm guessing you are as well and I got a call at work call today and so I was like. Oh so you know how you adjusting us in that. You're going to work. I always work from home did I. And I actually don't even go out on a normal day anyways this really has to say it hasn't affected me because it definitely has but on a day-to-day basis. My experience is very very similar. To what normally as I don't go to the gym I was GonNa say how can affect you in your navy reporter. Well right I mean mentally. I'm a disaster but physically. I'm sitting in the same place. I would have been anyways this weekend though normally would be on my way to Hamburg Aircraft Interiors Expo that has postponed slash canceled. I think it will actually cancelled but they admitted that That was supposedly Friday. Actually somewhat pleasantly surprised. I was able to D M American Airlines and British Airways cancelled. The flight was booked on the American and American process. The refund. They. I want me to go. Do it myself And the American process for getting a refund on their website is crap but when I went click the button is. We're sorry you can't cancel this ticket online. Ibm's him back and last night. That took care of it for me and this morning got back in touch with me told me is getting one hundred thirty two euros refunded calls. That make you feel Stephen. That's the opposite experience of united. Yes I mean at this point. I think I'm just going to file a charge. Back in right at the OT complaint wasn't what our friends at the exact same issue five tickets United Future Refunds Fry Open disputes and FAU DOT complaint if they even had chesser columbine. But if I have issues. I do the exact same thing. So here's a question for you guys. Because I believe it or not. In a similar scenario scenario my ticket home from Hamburg was an SAS operated reward issued by united and again. That's flights aren't operating. So they're gonNA is. This is just an award ticket. At worst I pay seventy five dollar redeposit. Fina get my points back. But they've canceled the flights in theory in any other scenario the the points would just get refunded for free. I can obviously issue a charge back for the taxes which were not insignificantly than Europe. But do you think stand a chance of getting my points for free or just assume? I'M GONNA pay the five dollars and have not combined until dollars you'll be able to do without the Without the thing is they're dragging their feet on refund simply because they don't want they want to hold onto the cash right so their latest policy is they will. Your ticket will stay OPEN FOR YEAR. And then they will process a refund for you right. Which assuming they're in business assuming they're in business. I mean I would hope that. If the government doesn't give these airlines a lifeline that part of those stipulations they can play stupid games. This is just ridiculous. I had a a friend asking me. His parents were supposed to go. This pet last Wednesday supposed to be on the united nonstop to Cape Town and then from there to Singapore on Swiss and then home if you or whatever and then back to the states and was asking me you know how to get out of it. Essentially we've been going back and forth like a month trying to help him out on that and Donna Mile. Just wait. Just wait. Just wait as the rules as more and more cancels things will get better for you and he eventually got to the point where they took a voucher because I think the united out athletes still operated even though this we're canceled at that point but he said his his parents. His parents were concerned that the vouchers would be nullified in a bankruptcy. I would be too I. It's a fairly assumption is it? I've thinking back of other airline bankruptcy. I don't remember that being something that they went after as far as assets they haven't but there's nothing asserted that they won't. I mean this might be more dire than anything else. They've had to go through in the past we. We are certainly unprecedented in unprecedented Era The industry. But I feel like I feel like I get I get. Why United's trying to do it. I think that they're doing it in the wrong way. Like you know. If American like American said to us they cancelled your flight. They're going to refund the. There's no reason. United should be like. Oh well we're GONNA keep your money and you're gonNA get a certificate for that case like Eve. In my case I would say my cases the like the extreme in maybe so mine is they delayed thirty two hours and basically making me leave a day early to to make connections. Chicago incidents Thirty two hours. And I like that may be a scenario where it's inconvenient for me. I could see cancelling it and keeping a credit. I don't like it. I think it's wrong but I think cancellation of a flight is more important than than my scenario. You know what I mean like. Think it's more. It's more useful for that person to get a refund in comparison to me so I don't know I just. It's disappointing that united to doing it. This way You know just actually has a flight scheduled for Wednesday that she's supposed to Austin she's not going to take the trip but I mean there's four people on the plane and amazed. I'm amazed Alaskan cancelled. It was actually talking to someone earlier today. Alaska of all the US carriers. Alaska Airlines has reduced. Its schedule. The least yeah which is really strange to me If you WANNA put on your foil hat and go for a fun ride. One of the arguments was. Maybe they want bankruptcy to undo the mess they made with the Virgin America by how might be a little bit extreme. But yeah it's really interesting how little they've adjusted their schedules Compared to obviously the big the biggest airlines Delta American united have cut massive chunks. But a lot of that international and international that Alaska never did anyways but domestic loads crater. Like jetblue is doing whether calling rolling cancellations where a day or two before the flight. If the loads are too low. They're just canceling. The trips. Reminded one hundred one hundred fifty of the eight hundred flights a day. They're doing that too now because they literally I mean. These aren't flights with single. Digit numbers of passengers. And I've pilot friend of mine. They're posted on Instagram of thirteen souls. Onboard for crew was ninety four crew nine passengers. Which is you have to cancel it. I would think a one off whatever maybe not but this is not a one off. This is the new regular. Yeah and like. That's the thing with justice flights. Like if they really wanted to they could cancel her flights and re Booker via Seattle or San Jose City And maybe put more people in planes but from what I've seen is just been masking insulations on her plate where Whitley were full. 'cause it's break here and no one's traveling now so these are all regional flights This is Portland Austin. Non-south is one seventy five thousand guys. No no it's it's not to Airbus seven seven. Three nine on the way back doesn't do anything at the regional contracts. It's it's the hipster expresses usually full. Well you know what's funny? Obsessed mention keep to honor their nose. Looking Newer Capetown is going out empty. Capetown Newark is coming back full. Everybody's evacuating Africa. Yeah it's crazy. Well that would cause I was wondering why they're running that play all the way through the end of the schedule and they cancelled everything else. I started looking at the loads mccaw. That makes more sense. Yeah there's a lot of very symmetrical loads right now Someone was saying the China Southern puts three eighties back on L. A. X. Three times a week now for those you worry that the eighties never fly again. At least for the very short period of time China Southern brought back by apparently the the SCUTTLEBUTT is empty coming into L. A. And full gone out with three Patriots Knees China as well so take with a grain of salt. It was shared by someone who is a Chinese national by suggesting that the Chinese of the United States are fearful especially in Los Angeles area. If you're full of the medical system WANNA get back to China where they think they'll be treated better. I think at this point China's probably the safest China or South Korea Safest PLACES TO BE. Certainly the most skilled incompetent in dealing with the situation. Exactly I I did find it interesting. That Singapore has now banned even transit passengers. I mean that's kind. I mean that's a. That's a new one for me now. There's a lot of countries doing now Part of that is they're they're not allowing entry of non residence and as flights are being canceled and operations are going to how they don't want to get stuck with someone who is now living in the airport
Wolfgat, a Far-Flung Destination for South African Coastal Cuisine
"Just a few years. South African Chef Cobras. Fundamentally has is boosted restaurant Wolf cuts to the Toba many lists ranking the world's best dining spots located in the fishing village of Party Nostra a hundred and fifty kilometers from Capetown. This small restaurant with seats for just twenty diners as the reputation for serving dishes made of some of the greatest local South African ingredients. I met Cobras at Kadoorie House studio one to discuss his success the south-african cooling the identity and first of all how his background as a journalist has been free tamers arrest or two and chef working with restaurant news At the DOT website. You kind of differently. Open up your eyes and your ears to what's happening globally. So I think that must have definitely played so some small role in the output when I started applying myself restaurant sort of scenario if that makes sense in wait sort of yeah I suppose it stimulates your your thoughts you know in terms of what's possible and what what can be done. And what's a gap in the market. Because I think in South Africa we still only just starting to realize what amazing things we have on home turf and to appreciate. It are indigenous produce and to present that as something that can be on a global stage and we sort of forging a South African culinary identity not which hasn't existed. In my opinion you're also talking about the importance of good storytelling. You learn as a journalist your I suppose definitely am. I still still do a lot of research for menus for the kind of inspiration for the restaurant. We situated historic voting on a very significant archaeological site with an old cave. That's located right underneath. The building said there's a lot of storytelling these a lot of early history that inspires everything everything what we do and how we compare the menu. How while we'd like to serve the Food and what we want to think of when they when they eat these things? It didn't more about your cooking philosophy as you are already making clear. We're talking about very very local food super local ingredients and so forth. Yes very intuitive menu. In a way whatever inspires us you know seasonally from the landscape. The way they're the history very much of that coastline and then picking indigenous succulents seaweeds wild herbs the whole teams involved every morning. Literally we up picking what's necessary for today's menu and it's about a six kilometer radius around the village. Everything comes from that radius. Not Everything I mean. We do get flour away from a neighbouring village a couple of hours away and we get of course we get more dry goods supplied like like any other strong on all local but not everything is sourced from you know that six kilometer radius but in each dish we always highlight an element that we've picked in that. Very like hyper local location. What are some of your favorite dishes just to paint a picture of listeners of what you get served at this restaurant I like really simple food? I like the combination of textures and flavors to be the surprise element around like things is to be to overwork. Layered all complicated so often dishes have only three or four ingredients. I like to combine elements of the land and the sea. So it could be an alien being that we puree and then serve with and some local green succulents or on the current or the menu. That just finished because we're now in a break Our our ultimate menu. We actually served one of the simplest dishes ever for our main course which was venison with seaweed so yeah literally like two elements like a surf and turf with local Springbok served with a kind enough Nari same species what's used for Sushi that grows in our local rapports poor fire and we found out in sort of a happy accident went way of this very special technique to get really really sulky. So it's always quite a nice surprise for gas because you see the sort of big almost chunk of seaweed on the plate and it looks like it's going to be a textual challenge and there's like this really silky smooth Emami slightly smoky seaweed that just really complements the venison quite well so two elements on the mate and it looks really simple. I mean you can't really do too much in terms of plating even so it's very pared-down pared-down and minimalist dish but then the flavors are just completely unexpected. And I'm quite new. Well we're resolve African food. Now what do you think is happening in your home country. It's a very exciting time because for so long we've had a bit of a Lack of confidence in our own produce and We have so many different cultures in South Africa. It's such a melting pot of different cultures and histories and traditional foods that we don't really have one single so African cuisine but now finally people are realizing that we need to create this momentum and for us the way to start in a small more way was to look very locally so to do something regional because then at least you get a little bit of an identity already and that you can work with but I think in the bigger context South African shapes differently becoming a lot more conscious that these sort of collective thing that we need to work together to establish. Tell me about your principles at work. I was reading that in your restaurant. There is no really high rocky over there and and it's interesting what people you've been hiring over there they don't necessarily we have massive qualifications so I work with a team of five For Women One man all born and raised in paternoster. None of them have any for more food background. Whatever or restaurant work our training and yes? We don't have any hierarchy or any distinction between kitchen in front of House.

Our 2020 Travel Wishlist
"Talking about our twenty twenty travel wishlist. And what what I said to you how. I was attacking this list this year. There's a few things that I did. We did one. We did not look back at our twenty nine thousand nine wishlist. We didn't want to do that and I didn't want to look back and say why can't put this on against I wanted this to be. These are the place to go. I don't even know what my twenty nine thousand nine lists was. There might might be some. My memory's not great so you guys probably can't remember it. I don't remember exactly and there is some method to the madness here. TRAV- have I was kind of having a hard time thinking of places that I wanted to go next year and we do have a lot of it planned out so that also was kind of you know it makes it a little harder because we're more organized with our travel plans but had here's what I looked at. I just said if if you had if someone said Hey. You've got two free weeks three weeks a month. Whatever some of these trips are long would be longer or shorter depending on how hard they are to get to and how far away? But but where would I want to go so again. I didn't try to think of this from a realistic perspective of Kenai actually get here in twenty twenty or will I be going here in two thousand twenty. That didn't play into in my decision at all. It was simply. What would I do if I could do? Obviously we have two kids now. That changed our travel plans. As you mentioned we're more organized than we plan stuff out so we kind kind of know places. We're going to go in two thousand twenty already so a lot of these Saying these are my this my wishes. I know I won't get to that's fine. Yeah it's more of a dreaming thing here ear to inspire ourselves to inspire you in create that wanderlust. Because you know sometimes I feel as though even because we're entrepreneurs resume we can go whenever we want and leaving we want. We do get bogged down a little bit in the everyday work life and then the planning of a trip which I know a lot of you can can relate to out there because planning is hard so we didn't want to think about that in factor that into this dream wishlist. WANDERLUST wanderlust. You I WANNA go. We're here to incite your Wunderlist for twenty twenty and I'm pretty excited about my list. I have to say I'm excited to know you this. When we do these lists we never talk ahead of time so I have no idea what we would like to hear from you so hit us up on social at extra pack of peanuts on Instagram? That's easiest way. Let us know what your Dream Twenty Twenty wishlist is. So let's dive right into one real last note. I guess though before we dive into it I actually was looking us a map of the world all the time when I'm trying to there's so many places I wanna go. I really wanted to go ever trying to narrow it down so I just look at Google Map I do too. That's funny and I was looking at map. I scrolled over in Asia. I scrolled over over and got into Europe and American I kept scrolling. You how you could on Google maps you could just keeps growing. It just shows you you know it goes back to Asia and I literally sat out loud. That's it like. I went from Asia to Europe. And I'm like Oh yeah I just looked through the whole world so I just thought that was a funny anecdote. I there's obviously so many places you're going to be but it seems small when you're looking at it from such a bird's eye view that's right. Yeah I I was kind of feeling the same way especially when I was scrolling over Europe and I you'd love Europe and I was thinking we've been to almost every country in Europe. Where do we want to go? I do have some places in Europe. Don't worry all right well. Let's start with our honorable all mentioned as usual. You have to. I have to go ahead correct. So my first honorable mention is a place that we almost got to this year in Twenty nineteen and that is Charleston South Carolina because this city to me just seems like it exudes Southern American charm. It's beautiful historic. The architecture is just what you would imagine would be in a in a beautiful southern city and it just so happens to be on the coast which is always something that for me. If I'm if I'm glancing up at my list almost every single go place on my list. Somewhere in that country has a coastline off on purpose. When I'm just glancing up here at this you know I really I love love? Love the coast so to me Charleston. South Carolina is a place in the US. That I really WANNA visit. Because we've you've never been there and it's not even that far from Philadelphia but an incredible food always talk named and ranked as one of the top Foodie cities in America so Charleston in definitely. I'm glad you put on your list. It's going allow me to chance to bed. I mean it could have made the real list but I put it on the honorable mention. Because it's not is exotic as I like I like it's going to allow me to cheat all right my first honorable mention than what we'll get back to your second is we'll stay I'll stay in the US to domestically a New Mexico state that we'd never neither of us have ever been to place. We both really wanted to go. Just you know. We have not spent a lot of time in the American. Southwest definitely definitely a region of the country that that we have not seen near as much of as some other places in the US. And I've always wanted to get to New Mexico when we threw this out there you know L. A. couple months going podcast when we were talking about fall bus paces to fall Got Tons of feedback from you guys about Albuquerque. Santa Fe why we should go to New Mexico so so it is definitely on the list here so New Mexico and this seems like when we feasibly could get to. Obviously it's not near as far as some of the plates. We're GONNA talk about so New Mexico honorable honorable mention just for the fact that you said seems a little more realistic might actually go to in twenty twenty so not that. I don't want to all right. Let's get going and this the reason that you liked that I put Charleston on there. I almost put New Mexico on there. I feel like we talked about New Mexico last year on the on the twenty nineteen wishlist. I can't remember about own fall back with two weeks ago and then on our radar and we've both been wanting to go so awkwardly Charleston South Carolina. We're helping each other out so far on this list. Your last on my last article mention is on here only only because in the main list only because we have personally been there before and that is South Africa. Let me jump billionaire going there again. This is my running. Capetown is on my honor. Roll Okay for the same reason that we have it planned to go there. September twenty twenty to watch my mom. Interestingly enough in the field hockey World Cup she is on the US. Under sixty five or over sixty I forget which way they caught national team. She's the Golly. Maybe we'll win. MVP this year. I know you're listening. Mom You got to get in shape. Let's get better shape than I am. She's incredible and we are going to South Africa and we're going to keep town specifically we've been there before but I am so excited to go back as one of our favorite cities in the world. Also also the wine region Man When I was making this list a lot of my places are winds. And you're leading wine and coast go wrong. Oh Oh and Kruger National Park which is not near the coast. It's in northern South Africa. And I think that we're hoping to do a safari there in the National National Park. Would you be really exciting and I know that what is young. He'll be almost three by the time we go. It's a little young. I fry but I think he'll love it. Yeah Capetown and as you mentioned more broadly South Africa on my ro mentioned again. We are unless something happens. We are planning to be there. September into October twenty twenty twenty couldn't be more happy about that. That's our big couldn't like our beer couldn't be more happy. Couldn't be happier. That's our big trip. That's planned for twenty twenty. That's it's actually on the calendar so far so
It's complicated: Zimbabweans see Mugabe's legacy as mixed
"Former president of zimbabwe robert mugabe has died at the age of ninety five. He was is a schoolteacher turned guerrilla fighter who helped to topple white rule in zimbabwe. Only to then lead the country to the brink of economic ruin his successor president emerson managua said in a message on twitter quote commander mugabe was an icon of liberation a pan africanist who dedicated his life to the emancipation and empowerment norman of his people his contribution to the history of our nation will never be forgotten our deputy africa bureau chief gabrielle steinhaeuser is in capetown so gabrielle. Tell me a bit more about how mr mugabe ended up in power so mugabe came to power in nineteen eighty initially as prime minister of zimbabwe <hes> having sort of liberated his country from the british and and and also white minority government that followed and in his his first few years he really kept warm relations with his predecessor they would regularly have t- you know and he i think he was was honored by the british and he will succeed as this and of enlightenment need a he was a schoolteacher. You know he was educated. He we build a very strong education system zimbabwe but you right that the way he'll be remembered is a bit more complicated. I think it's a bit of a complicated legacy. I would say for most imbaba winds. They will remember him for the brutality and economic hardship of his final decades in power where the economy really spiraled and off any kind of opposition was brutally repressed but then you know you have other leaders in africa who really especially here in south africa really remember him for the support he gave them in their old liberation struggle so we had a very sort of hard shelled message from the ruling party the african national congress in south africa so the lauding him for his contribution to bringing the an and to apartheid and how is zimbabwe doing now. It's actually a really kind of sad adds to that because after he finally resigned resigned than i was in harare you know tens of thousands of people just storming the streets in celebration and there was so much optimism not only among zimbabweans but also among western governments who were ready and companies who are keen to engage in an invest. I think what we've seen over the last nearly two in years. There's a lot of that optimism plate fade away so it's hard to kind of look at mugabe's staff this this point to to a story of decline because it seems like the decline unfortunately continues

South Africa graft inquiry exposes ANC divisions
"Today. We're looking at South Africa and its battle against corruption which took a dramatic turn this week with former president Jacob Zuma a cool to testify before commission of inquiry joining me on the line from Johannesburg is correspondent jobs of cultural and here in the studio Africa editor David Pilling David Festival. Could you give us the background. This inquiry is into this idea of state capture. The role of some businessmen called Gupta's. How's it come to this will for a long time? There's been this notion of state capture which is really South African phrase or it's become a kind of Motif in South Africa really a term that denotes mass corruption the hollowing out of some some of South Africa's most important institutions in the idea that they've been kind of sold to the highest bidder including the family mentioned the Gupta's who are very close to Jacob Zuma when he was president this in the sense of the moment that everyone's been waiting for this has been ongoing testimony from from various people who are involved her accused or who have evidence but this is really the man who is said to be at the sense of the Fulcrum the man who innocence is alleged to have sold the presidency and really sent South Africa which was already having many difficulties really kind of sense it on a very difficult path of low growth corruption loss of faith in the A._N._C.. An government and therefore a lot hangs on this inquiry doesn't it I mean it's not just just about making sure that justice was dumb to some extent the hopes of President Obama poser to correct the course of South Africa to some extent today hang on this inquiry working out to some extent. Yes I mean I think there are two things I mean one. Is this idea that the people who were involved should be punished. Jacob Zuma has been doging what some people would say as justice what he would say as persecution for moving a decade those who think that Zimmer is guilty those who think that he is at the center of something that is corroded the whole South African dream think that unless he somehow punished then we won't be able to move on then there's also cost the kind of evidence that is presented the evidence that is needed to root out corruption from within the A._N._C. and it goes very deep according to most accounts and evidence. That's really needed for Sir. I'm opposed to get a grip on the party and turn it in the direction that he has claimed he wants to turn it into in his electioneering so Joseph this week the commissioner of inquiry weaker very important state with presence Zuma Call to testify how did that go started with classic Jacob Zuma Very Rivera performance as he opened his testimony and gave his side of the story and he said free. Anything's Fussy his enemies in the African National Congress auspice they are saying all of these things about the <unk> because foreign spy agencies which he didn't name but were to be the C._I._A.. Enough is instructed students <unk> and finish off. He said people trying to kill him. People have sent suicide bombers <unk> after him people trying to poison him so it's very dramatic but since then and the days the photoed he's deflated a bit as we've got into the nuts and bolts of enquiries questioning the inquiry has put to him specific allegations civilisation exits. You told them to lie about the Gupta's Minister Zet made this claim and immune response has been. I don't know I can't remember right and this conspiratorial stuff that he's used. Is there a ready audience written South Africa. Do you think many people will be listening to him and does he still have a financial support quarter. Can maybe prevent him being brought down bonus outside Africa and in most of the population. This does sound absolutely match. He's going back to allegations that date from the nineteen ninety s that the A._n._C. was infiltrated by foreign spies. Zoom himself was a former spy master in the A._N._C.. He claims to have lists of enemies. Were spies. It does sound like it comes from <unk> but there is an audience in G._N._C.. It's not big but it is exists. People do believe there is outside interference in South African and A._N._C. Politics and by that narrative that this position imposed by external forces Suma has not named but in terms of picking away at the credibility of inquiry picking away at the credibility of Roma pauses cleanup effort it works to create that kind of disinformation and David would there are people think within the N._C.. Whose face the tied up with Jacob Zuma so they're not necessarily people who believe in him? I'm sure there are in the wider population especially in KwaZulu Natal but within the A._N._C. There are people who depend on Zuma's version of events prevailing because otherwise otherwise the next nothing. That's quite important because you've got this fight within the A._N._C. and remember Ramaphosa only just won the presidency so you have this fight between these different elements and they've not been able to root out by any means all the the people who were pretty much involved in state capture. Some of them still hold high office if you look at the A._N._C. Network throughout the provinces of South Africa the kind of riddled with people who somehow benefited from a lot of what was going on and so there's a lot of steak and they're able to fight back to some extent on them. They've been able to chuck allegations the Finance Minister Probably Gordon and so on well. That's exactly right. I mean you have this kind of war of words and his war of parallel realities. It's important to note that there is very clear documentation mutation the backs up a lot of these allegations even though some of the investigative services were themselves compromise for example the protects the general to Lee Metal Seller came out with a report with names dates places the Financial Times itself reported reported a story where the then finance minister was offered a bag of money to take over the finance ministry and do various things that would have been off benefit to people connected to this sort of state capture network so I mean there's quite a few smoking guns there. But there's also the possibility especially I think in the world that we live in today of a counterfactual narrative that can be built up and if people arrested in that narrative than it's easy to believe it if their fortunes if their jobs depend on it then of course they'll believe John Beckett right and Joseph how is in broader terms the Ramaphosa effort to write South Africa to put it back on the right track. How's it going eighteen months ago? I think people would have been talking about remote Pouria about this sense that just a mere fact of having someone else in the presidency would unleash foreign investment and bring back South African companies to invest her as well that is not going well the economy's gutting with recession and they're very bad numbers at the beginning of this year. It's GonNa take a long time just because of the extent of the role just to take one example Eskan depowered monopoly which generates navy one of the country's electricity has just been for band patch of quite severe blackouts which obviously done the economy no favours as Davis had that is a smoking gun. One of the biggest intensive corruption under Zuma's rule but Ramaphosa team has been very very slow hello to restructure and s gone back honor bell fitting so that sense of urgency that was there a year and a half ago or Zuma was removed from power than dissipating and is that because the President Ramaphosa of the obstacles faces are larger than he imagined I mean how bad was the situation. He inherited actually we can go back to something. A former minister said at the inquiry about state capture itself which is don't over zoom denies denies it during make it all about Jacob Zuma. This was a much bigger network. The one president that are much more alleged perpetrators than the Gupta's so to route that out of the A._N._C. will be a bigot. It doesn't involve solve the tax collection agency the National Prosecutor even the public protect to David mentions had four against Corruption Zuma Bat has allegedly been captured by the quote unquote fightback so so it's not like things going on one way towards reform. It's a real conducting institutional fight so yes. It's not what about Jacob Zuma legacy so let's just finish by looking at the future both of the A._N._C. itself twelve and of South Africa. David background is that it's known about a battle within the end see the N._C.. The Positive Liberation the Party of Mandela has been losing popularity in their arrivals. Do you think this is an away a last chance for the Nancy and if they fail walk replaces them I think in says it is a less chance I mean you've seen its popularity slide. I think they won't fifty seven percent in this election fifty seven fifty eight and it would have been much lower had not been for the remedy fauria affect that Joseph referred to there is disillusion in the A._n._C. as a kind of typical liberation party which of course it never was seen as it was seen as this great transformer of the Rainbow Nation but it's unfortunately in many people's is gone on the way of other post-independence liberation movements got a monopoly on power and therefore abused its power. The one thing you're saying is that the South African economy which had been growing before Jacob Zuma five and six percents a year at least giving. Some room to do some of the social changes that the A._N._C. has promised to do an is the legacy of apartheid that does need to be addressed but with no growth with recession. There's just nothing to play with and in the end I think unless unless the A._N._C. can sought out its internal divisions standouts corruption at least to a certain extent and get the economy moving again then we will proceed at one pacer another in one direction that will be that the A._N._C.'s majority will old slipped below fifty percents. We'll move into coalition government. I didn't think we'RE GONNA lose the A._N._C. and power for quite a long time but you can see the A._N._C.'s total monopoly on power fading and in some people's eyes that would be no bad thing but some of the political forces I mean there are liberal democratic forces but they're also more left wing nationalist forces led by me and someone who might profit they're both you know there's a party to the right of the A._N._C. which believes in much more free market liberal economy of vessel but might be recognizable say in Europe but there's also a policy that basically says that the Liberation Movement in one thousand nine hundred four has been betrayed that is rallying around questions like nationalization of land or expropriation of land or that compensation because the the truth of South Africa the big truth that's looking behind all of this is that the disparity of income between the largely white population but with now black middle classes prospered on the one side and then a great divide with the rest of the black population that has really been left behind in his almost as far behind as it was under apartheid. That's the background and that's the social pressure that is behind a lot of this in which the A._N._C. in internal struggles in its moral corrosion is really unable to address and Joseph to finish the time I was in South Africa one did hear this phrase state capture but also some people muttering about state failure the sense that if this couldn't be turn round South Africa was really quite serious trouble and it statuses is the most advanced economy in Africa was under threat as we speak the army has been deployed in South Africa's Western Cape Aware Capetown is because of crime being so bad in townships around South Africa's second city not so as indicates for failure buses capture. I think that's a fad point to make state. Capture focused on major state companies focused on the Finance Ministry the very top of the state intensive allegedly the diverting resources to people Gupta's but from below rivers issues Davis has just been talking about basic service to the water at Trinity. I mentioned Eskom. Thurs indicates is old flagging as well. I I mean look at the end of the day of roughly infrastructure is miles edge of many countries on the continent on remains sir but this sense of urgency that was eighteen months ago about undoing nor anything capture but also bringing economic stagnation to an end Indorama poser that message has lost a bit amid the continued inflicting in the A._N._C. so that risk of failure stood

We probably here fringe fringe fringy like like a hundred times, you know, what they call us in the Bahamas konki Joe's concrete donkey fringy. But that's like fringy. I'd rather be Reggie Kanchi JR. No, I'm saying the same thing in before we split, but I want to I got to hear about just from a logistical standpoint. This this world marathon challenge, which for the listener is this just sit down is seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. Yep. Seven consecutive days seven straight days. Yeah. Right. If you look at the website, guys and gals. I mean, it's just it doesn't make any sense. These are not official marathon. I mean, there's not like your now, they're is they're not nice. It's an organized tour group by the world marathon challenge, Richard Donovan puts it on. He did such amazing ago. Now, he never saw him stress the entire trip. You imagine like leading trip. How many people people fifty people like maybe thirty people running and then a bunch of sap, but he was never stressed the entire time. Like the most laidback chill out super inspires the schedule. I don't know if this is it this month is that that's. Issue. So January twenty ninth everybody you get to arrive in Capetown January thirtieth Prija pre-departure briefings for Antarctica. January thirty first we fly to Antarctica at eight o'clock marathon starts at one marathon Capetown the next day marathon and pert the next day marathon and Dubai marathon Madrid marathon, and Santiago and then a marathon in Miami. At least you get to end in Miami. Well that was this year. So they keep changing they didn't change. I ended in Sydney Australia's are less. So how do you? They must have a plane that takes everybody around and the private jet. So that makes all the difference right gotten..

This is such a devoted summertime. Joyous. When you're watching stuff, and you just wanna be happy. It's really fun. It brings me joy. I'll watch this movie with or without pants. Joy, congratulations. Max looking forward to tonight. We're coming Thursday. Three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred is our phone number housesmarts radio with me, Lou Manfredini. This is Christo in Aurora. Hello there. Good morning. Lou. How are you today? Great. How can I help you? Well couple of years ago. I bought my house and are replaced all the the plumbing heating cooling debt. What what the Chicago company in the name? But last water heater started leaking. So they came out. They took a look at it replaced. It was still under or all after they replaced. It the water the hot water. It took about two minutes for the hot water to get hot to any town. No matter where you are in the house how close or how far after having come come out several times, I talked like sex. They did say it was a concern. But they didn't have any other than putting a recycling. All now the other houses lie neighborhood. Nobody has recycler. Nobody has this problem. One other thing that I'll say is the guys that came out in the water heater was hooked up long in the first place. So I don't know if that had anything to do with it. And I just want to see if there's anything I can do. He was hooked up wrong to begin with. So the way it's hooked up. Right now is still the way that they said, it's hooked up wrong. No one was originally hooked up. There was a pipe going from the bottom up to the water Pete. So you have your water in July route. And I don't know why that pipe was going from the bottom like where you normally would have like, a drainage, right? Okay. So it was the way way. Wait. So. So there was that the drain spigot. They put an they put nipple on the end of that. And then the pipe came down. And then the spigot was on the outside of that. Correct. Originally, there's a pipe so out of the drainage pipe. There was a pipe coming out of the leading up. Right. That was that was a gravity fed. Restrict relating loop. And now and now because that's been eliminated. That's why you're waiting so long for the water to get hot. So where is that pipe? Now. Let's have a pipe on the drainage pipe. It's just the right? But where where is the pipe? That was connect in other words it had to come from somewhere. Like when you are you home now? Yeah. I'm looking at the water when you look up. Do you see a half inch water line somewhere that has a cap on it that doesn't go anywhere? No, there's two pipes coming out of the top of the water heater the cold in the hot. And then look up there. Do you see any kind of smaller half inch line? That's running horizontally. That isn't connected anything. No. Look around. I'm looking there's two parts coming directly out of it one. I'm touching it. Well, yeah. The one that comes out of one of the pipes. And it's got an on off Alvin has done. It's got a little tiny nipple hype. No, it's on and off. Right. But it it's an on and off valve to nothing. There is one little. Like a little thing that we. Right. So helping. Right. That's it. So the way and this is a newer home. Correct. The home itself is probably nineteen. Okay. So what what I'm guessing. Because of the way you described that for when the old heater when you had all this plumbing, redone, the old heater before it failed. Were you waiting this long for hot water? No, no, the old waiting that long. But new here we weren't waiting that long. You know, my parents they would say. Past the hot water came out. Right because you had a they eliminated the hot water return. So in other words, the recirculating pump that they talked about you can do that same thing with gravity meaning from the furthest fixture, which I don't know what's the furthest fixture. The probably the upstairs master bathroom. There's a pipe. My guess that comes from that hot water side that gets piped all the way back down pipes to the bottom of the water heater where it was piped to that spigot. And so that creates a gravity loop. And so to your parents going. Wow, I can't believe how hot water this water. So quick it's because the gravity loop went to the furthest one and kept the hot water in the pipes by them eliminating that return line. That's why you're waiting. Shouldn't they have put it right back? How they had it before they have should I request that from them. Correct. This happened in may. Yes. And unfortunately, I gone here and there, and I haven't had a chance to get back to them. And I guess as you get my guess is you had some young plumbers that maybe have no experience with a gravity fed return line. Hadn't young experience holder younger. Everybody came out on six times. Right. And it was just getting a little bit older than ridiculous. Right. So I guess I'm gonna call them. One more time and say after that I'm gonna go with another plumber because literally two minutes to wait for the hot water come through even for the same. Probably. Right. A ball, right? Based on what you're based on what you're describing to me right now, and how it was hooked up before. And you're not waiting for that water. There's a hot water recirculating gravity fed line. That's been eliminated that needs to be put back, and it does get piped into where that it is at the bottom of the water heater. And I would have them come back and fix it for sure thanks so much for the phone. Call nine twenty in the morning. We'll be right back. I like Mondays. And.

And basically, it's a total total new area is just Brogel is open oven wasteland, and I was driving out cross with very expensive camera round, my neck, and my cricket, and it's very prancing. My favorite Rolling Stones t shirt, and there's going run up and said he wanted my camera, and he seemed to something couple of times and the leg and the impact of push me over I think. It was done. It's maybe he pushed me over an eye. Grabs him not moment. Any sort of found down kinds of behind me and started really kicking me in the back of the heads and the neck and in the back, which was pretty painful. So I kind of rolled around that which points kicking in throats and a little bit in the face. But also in the chest and reds. And I looked down twenty. I'm sort of my leg was covered in blood completely with blood bleeding quite quickly. And I like that point and realise that those two punches hadn't been punches tool. It actually stopped me. So that he got his I like my camera wish we were talking between us, and I think that's really really annoying 'cause when he stood out. He just kicked case kicked and kicked me. And then Reynolds. No one around. I wanna tool pooper back onto pavement. Yeah. So against your mind and something like that. I mean, you you you all take you late that event, but you know, it's not easy to even verbalize an attack like that. And then yet even begin to process. What's going through your mind? Have did you get out of that situation? It was beyond me to get something else happen that was shocking thing. Just lying. Comes from all the blood trying to look at the bloods. And I could feel my vision going mobile, run the engines live in Perth revision, those budge blood loss or shock probably both just thinking monumentally tired and just wanted to lie back and shut lines and have done without moment to be. But something my mind is telling me if I lie, they back shut my eyes. I'm dying. No one would stop for someone in that position. A my only hope was to prop myself up on the now, but and just try and look around and I did an out of nowhere, a pizza delivery cost g believe and the guy letdowns. I mean, he was civic, right? You mentioned for stopping someone not circumstance, the carjackings and all sorts of horrors. He saw me an extremist let me to my feet and just.

She could not talk. She. She just stood there. Math -solutely open wide in horror staring at me. And I thought about that for a long time thinking I want to upset upsets traumatized in such a way, and then the penny drawer unless thing why such an impact on me that vision, I can say now face really pretty thanks just face fruits, and then sort of home continous car, the reason that sector so much is because her face and not moment was not to mirror of my.

"capetown" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"The answer is that it is. I acknowledged there isn't a surgeon general report on this. Topic? But frankly, the national climate assessment that came out a few weeks ago is I- popping. And I think everybody needs to take a look closely at what has been reported there about the health impacts of climate which are happening right now in our own communities to everybody not just vulnerable populations. But also everybody so it's a fundamental issue that really threatens to reverse a lot of the public health gains. We've made over the last decades. Now, you know, a lot of people might actually take issue with what you said and said, why can't it be both a polar bear and Andy and a young person with worsening asthma as well. So just point takes aching for all listeners there, but I wanna play another just quick piece of of tape here. Because again to get a sense of how we're seeing these impacts on the ground. I wonder if folks remember that last year, you know, for quite a long time Capetown in in South Africa was was concerned about daisy row as they were. Calling it the day that Capetown would actually basically run out of water or have to start rationing it because of an extended drought they were having in South Africa. And so in January of last year CBS news, foreign correspondent, Debra patta. Spoke with on points, Jane clayson about Capetown's water problem and about at that time. The city was expected to run out of water in April of last year. It didn't. But nevertheless, at the time Patas had climate change is making matters worse for Capetown gauge, good rainfalls in Cape this. Yeah. It won't be enough. Because Cape Town is getting hotter. Temperatures on much higher than the previous year. And what you're seeing is the problem be back ration-. So the wool evaporates as the temperature increases so going forward the won't be enough water. So although they might not be via Wilshire restrictions in the future. They save me all going to always be some kind of restrictions in place in Kate zone. So that was last year before Capetown was concerned about hitting. Zeros they called fortunately began to rain there. So they never actually had their water emergency. But the threat remains we have so many callers who want to join us, and I have been neglecting them my apologies to you. But let's go to Victor who's been calling who was calling from Albany, New York. Victor, you're on the air. Thank you. I'm a physician medical acupuncturist who works in the trenches in clinical mouth, and I'm not an academic. But I see increases of allergy increases of severity of allergy asthma, and the nano eighty morbidity the film, and the cost the indirect costs that people are have to miss work or happiness. They have to take Africa's out of worked. He cares for children because of the heightened use of medical services, and that costs more money in terms of, you know, those resources can be used for other patients or other or other conditions in in things that I deal with you know, some of the rare conditions are another dress. If we have to folk it's more money on the more common, but very prevalent and the. Complications. We'll victor. Thank you so much for your call. Dr the rocket may turn back to you Victor bringing up a couple of things that we haven't touched on yet this hour, and that is of course, the healthcare sector is already an enormous part of the United States economy their victory saying that, you know, he's seeing perhaps even more resources going to manage care for these climate potentially climate linked health problems he seeing walking into his own office. And then he also talked about the productivity impacts perhaps on the US economy. People are missing work because they can't breathe due to exacerbate asthma, for example. Yeah. Absolutely..

In Africa, climate challenges and opportunities
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Climate challenges and opportunities in Africa. I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter. This is climate cast. You know, it's fourteen thousand miles from Capetown South Africa to Minnesota but climate changes in sensitive climate zones. Like Africa can have a much wider impact. I talked about that with Matt Brown. He's the nature conservancies regional managing director for Africa. You know, a lot of the East African countries are seeing significant changes in the rainfall patterns, maybe as predicted to get quite drier. And there's a lot of food security issues and north and central Africa. So Africa's a big place Paul. There's fifty four countries over two thousand languages as you know. So it's a little bit of different shifts and impacts in different parts of the continent. So how do you decide which countries need the most resources we looked largely at where we can improve large intact systems that have the ability to be more resilient to climate change. And allow species to move and shift protection is has a higher return on investment than restoration. So a lot of our work is focused on. On finding intact ecosystems, and they all include people, of course. But finding ways to make sure that those systems persist over time like many journalists this year met we reported on Cape Town's, low reservoir levels earlier in the year. I'm curious about your perspective on how that played out this year. And as the rainy season finally arrived, similar to California. There's a lot of issue with agricultural offtake both for fruits as well as for vineyards. And then there's the consumption domestically the days euro proclamation in Cape Town brought a lot of awareness to water issues and water scarcity, but I think it helped create more willingness for behavior change, but the threat is still out there as it was yesterday. So we're we're moving out quickly to put better adaptation and better practices in place to try and secure water for the long term. And I asked this question to a lot of different people in a lot of different ways. But we're seeing climate change impact the hydrologic cycle where it's raining and how hard it's. Raining is shifting. How important is water in the work that you're doing water is critical in the work that we do. And so the changes in the hydrologic cycle as a result of warming. Global temperatures can be pretty catastrophic unless we are able to reduce that amount and manage the movement of wildlife access to water for people living in urban environments and have better buffer systems. I do feel like that there's a lot of positive interventions that we can pursue but the water cycle, and how hydrology is potentially going to be impacted is quite severe. If we just sit back and maintain a business as usual scenario, Matt Brown nature conservancy regional managing director for Africa. Thanks for sharing your perspective today. Thank you, all my name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And then they come over here. See what we're doing? You know, one of it uses low hanging fruit that we learned the first year we were in Germany was they don't have any paper products, plastic product styrofoam products. So when we came back to the city, all we removed all of that. So now just kind of started it, and then now we have a mandatory curbside recycling program, but are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. When we were in Germany, you know, they would always say five hundred years from thousand years from now they're not doing their energy transition right now because of the here and now it's for generations later. And I guess that's why I think that this is important. Also is I want my great great grandchildren to enjoy the same quality life in northwestern Minnesota that we have and in the whole country the whole world. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is could make a difference for future generations. I don't know what's wrong with that. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul Hutton her.
