"On the next piano show yes there is an interesting mayoral election in New York It's in Buffalo Well here why centrist party leaders are not supporting the woman who won the democratic primary Also New York Times book review editor Pamela Paul with her own new book 100 things we've lost to the Internet These range from privacy to punctuation to blind dates The Brian May show at ten a.m. on WNYC It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Noelle king and I'm Rachel Martin good morning Social media is responsible for cyberbullying violence even eating disorders among teens That's what a Facebook whistleblower told a Senate committee earlier this month Today that same committee wants to know if other social media companies are safe for kids Executives from YouTube SnapChat and TikTok will testify today We'll hear from senator Amy Klobuchar in a moment But first NPR's miles parks is here on what we can expect from this hearing Hey miles Hey good morning Rachel Safe to assume that it was the revelations from Francis Hogan that Facebook whistleblower that's prompted today's hearing Well that definitely expedited the process but senators honestly over the last year have really focused on this issue is one of the most bipartisan important issues when they think about reforms for big tech You know this screen time has only become a bigger part of all of our lives over the last couple of years The parental control software company custodio released a report earlier this year that found overall screen time for kids was up 36% last year Kids you use TikTok we're using it for almost an hour and a half a day Kids who use YouTube kids were using it for an hour a day Could you use SnapChat We're using it for 45 minutes a day I imagine all of those numbers are very familiar to a lot of parents I mean yeah the pandemic meant a lot more screen time for sure Miles wondering though if there is actual data out there about the effects of kids spending a lot of time using these social media apps It's hard to drill down exactly and just say you know these apps are screen time generally is really bad for kids You know a recent study from the University of Colorado Boulder for instance looking at 9 and ten year olds found no association between screens and childhood anxiety or depression But as we mentioned a second ago a large chunk of the recently leaked Facebook documents do focus on the mental health effects that platform has on kids One internal slide found that 32% of teen girls said that when they feel bad about their bodies Instagram makes them feel worse and SnapChat and TikTok share a lot of similar features to Instagram Bottom line here is that we all are still learning exactly how these platforms affect us affect our children but we're learning on the fly since tens of millions of kids are already using these platforms all the time Right So the executives from these companies no doubt are going to be on defense today Do we have any idea what they're likely to say We do NPR acquired the opening statements from YouTube and from SnapChat The biggest takeaway is that these companies are going to keep pushing back on this idea that their current business model prioritizes profit over the wellness of kids That's always been the central concern here If these businesses make money based on how long kids and people look at them and research indicates that some of those kids would be better off looking at them less and it seems like there is an inherent conflict there But in our opening statement the VP of SnapChat talks about a moment in 2017 where they realize that a part of their platform was leading to users making negative comparisons about themselves They said that they redesigned the app it may have hurt user growth but that it was the right thing to do for our community That's a quote the tough part here is that that was in 2017 I have to imagine all of these companies have had similar moments to that in the time since but we don't know about any of those moments I imagine lawmakers will want to hear about more of those moments There's a lot of chatter about regulation Congress's role in helping protecting kids here Is there any sign of that to come It definitely feels like we're inching closer to the possibility of regulation and the Facebook leaks could potentially move that even further or even more quickly But it's important to note that for how little we know about the effects of Facebook and Instagram on kids we know even less about some of these other platforms So hearings like this like today are important I expect lawmakers are going to want to drill down on what internal research these companies have about their effects on kids In Paris miles parks we appreciate it miles thank you Thank you Rachel We're going to bring in another voice now Democratic senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota is one of the senators who will be putting questions to those tech executives today She sits on the subcommittee for consumer protection product safety and data security Senator Klobuchar thanks for being here Well thanks Rachel It's great to be on again So your committee was the one that spoke with representatives from Facebook about how their platform also Instagram which they own affects kids What specifically do you want to ask ask the executives from TikTok YouTube and about how they are managing all of this Well this is the first time we're going to hear especially from snap and TikTok We've heard a bit from YouTube before But this is our moment where we're going to say okay we don't have all your documents like we've been seeing with Facebook But we know it's the same kind of thing And I was listening to reporter talk about the lack of data that we have on kids on these platforms So that's a good place to start right We know adults spend three to four hours a day on apps of some.

Could This Be the End of Benjamin Netanyahu's Political Career?
"Of Benjamin Netanyahu beyond wise to strike him off, But it looks like a key Israeli opposition party has backed Unity government, excluding Mr Netanyahu, Man in question is the ultra nationalist leader Naftali Bennett, who announced that his party would join talks to form a governing coalition with the centrist Party leader Yah Lapid. Mr Netanyahu's reacted saying the proposed deal would weaken Israel. Oh, in ultimate is senior correspondent at the 24 news child in Tel Aviv and joins us now. Oh, and thanks for coming on I mean, most people if they know about Bennett, they'll know that he has more in common with Netanyahu, uh, with the anyone else s. So why is this happening now? And will it work? Do you think It's happening now. Because over the course of two years, Benjamin Netanyahu has lost more and more pieces of the Israeli right. And there are hundreds of thousands of Israelis who have gone to the polls again, most recently in our last elections and have said they are right wing, but they would rather have a government that is dominated by the center left then have Benjamin. It's now return to power. A number of political parties went to voters and said, You have two options. Option A Netanyahu staying in power Option B, a center left government even though you voter are right wing voter and hundreds of thousands of Israeli right wing voters opted for option B on so that basically led those parties to become a balance of power and then cooked up with the center left. And put themselves in a position on the cusp of ousting Israel's longest serving prime minister. Right. So you suggest that this has been going on for a while, anyway, a sort of Ah, drift or removed. But hasn't he been able to present himself as Mr Security? That's who he's always presented himself as we've heard his comments, saying, Who's going to look after the settlers? That kind of thing? Doesn't that count anymore? Accounts among the large spar thought that Israeli voters and again don't forget this coalition if it's formed, has a very narrow majority. And Netanyahu still in every single poll has a plurality of the votes when the public's asked who they want to be prime minister, But it's not enough. It's not enough for him to get a majority in the
PJ ORourke and the search for the centre ground
"These last five years or so have been rough going for a lot of people. Among, them have been those who think of themselves as occupants more or less of the middle of the road, the zealous, the bipartisan the consider as of arguments on their own merits compromises count we all just get along is. So. Polarizing have these times being that even some of those who might in less crazed and Febrile Times have been considered ideological out lawyers appear suddenly reasonable. Special. Guest this week is PJ O'Rourke, the journalist foreign correspondent and satirist who made his name as a conservative contrarian in the nineteen eighty, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s gleefully winding up the liberal subscribers of rolling stone and writing bestselling books including Republican, Party reptile give war a chance and peace kills a rock became if possibly despite himself, the favorite conservative of American liberals being about as much a liberal as American conservatives could stand. His latest book a cry from the farm middle dispatches from the divided land fines rourke. If not exactly standing afford history yelling stop. Then at least flailing gamely at the on rushing tide of dogmatic foolishness with the broom of measured reason and not once does he mangle metaphor nearly as grotesquely that this is the last episode of this program which will be broadcast before a rox fellow Americans make a fairly fundamental decision about what their politics is going to look like from here on can the centre-ground be retaken and is anyone still there? This is the foreign desk. The anarchistic Listrik point of view that is common at the end of the teens in the beginning of the twenties and on for those of us who matured very late. Reality shake you out of that I mean anybody who tells me are an anarchist I'll invite them to revisit Mogadishu with me. Let me show you what anarchy really means. Now non nealer hand is sort of like armed nitwit trump supporters. Maybe should have had a little goal at Northern Ireland back in the eighties. Where that road leads, if you WANNA take that road all the way down to the end of that road Belfast was. Enlightening experience as we're the Balkans and so and saw that light goes to mitigate. Once absolutism and certainly once anarchism knowle's. Page or you welcome to the foreign desk this episode may end up appearing as either the last signal before the ship sinks or the fanfare perhaps of some new door and we need to frame our conversation accordingly indeed find a middle ground which I think is appropriate to certainly the theme of Your New Book the title a cry from the Far Middle Does seem to book in Republican Party. Reptile from Nineteen eighty-seven to an extent. But the question is can the middle ground be made to sound atl sexy and exciting? No. I'm Sir Short Answer. Thank you for joining us. PJ. House that was a quick interview of Frank Answer and a One one been looking for a certain amount of honesty in politics. I just saw something the other day I saw the first honest yard sign that I have seen over here in the states this election campaign, it said settle for Biden. If it weren't for the pandemic I would've gone knocked on their door and give them the big. Hug. But is there a way you think that centrism can be made to sound at all exciting could there be a centrist party reptile. Yeah, it would be very tough, but you know it really I just want to go back to US fighting in our usual way I don't want to put an end to our quarrels with some sort of sweet and mushy kiss on both cheeks wall befriends from now on and forever no I want to go back to a good strong fight between the left and the right. Trouble is to fight has gotten away from the issues. You know the coral it's one of those things like a good old family feud. Coming from an enormous Irish family I am plenty familiar with us. A good family feud where the cause of the the anger is long forgotten and people are just screaming and yelling at each other and threatening each other and misbehaving. In general we want a period where the left and right really had to confront themselves. They had to confront the failure of communism, which is leftism taken to its greatest extreme. The left had to confront the failure of that Ed to confront the failure of their socialist economies in western Europe in in the UK and so on. The right had to then confront the fact that it was much less fund should be empower under Reagan and Thatcher. Then it was to be standing outside pressing your face against window making grievances and obscene gestures and turned out that the free market. Lovely thing though it is, it doesn't solve all our problems magically either so we had to fight that album. It's now been. So long ago since we had those substantive fights that we've forgotten how to argue. So my comparison I don't think actually put this in the book, but missing about sense is that. Are Put aglow arguments have ceased to be real political arguments about real issues as say, no, do we increase the scope of the national health improve its funding and operation or do we modify? It means tested? Give a little larger scope to the private sector Blah Blah. Blah Instead. It's one of those things and anybody who's been in a marriage or partnership it starts out with shall We re Slip Cover the SOFA and it ends up with, and then there was a woman you were flirting with that party in Nineteen ninety-one to which the other half of the partnership response I hate your mother I'd never settled out but I hate your mother, you know. And here we are

Top CEOs say companies should put social responsibility above profit
"We're joined now by allen murray president and c._e._o. Of fortune and in full disclosure my former boss you write today that as political leadership becomes more polarized having companies more consciously focused their power on solving society's biggest problems albums is good development so i can already kind of see the warren sanders critique here which would be these companies are in part the cause of some societies biggest problems albums. How did the c._e._o.'s seem to respond to that critique. Well i think they're certainly aware of it and looked and you know full well. They may be the cause of some problems. There also the solution solution to an awful lot of problems. People want jobs. People on incomes people wanna growing economy that comes from the private sector. It doesn't come from government so i think they're two ways to look look at it. No question that this development is a result partly of partly the great recession partly pressure from employees partly of good intentions on the part of some of the c._e._o.'s but also partly as a political response to a deteriorating political environment and a sense that they have to to do better and just to keep the system. I wonder ins impossible. I guess to figure this out numerically but you know you talk about the difference between the old mission statement which was basically shareholders above of all to this being shareholder value important other things important also. Do you have any sense on how these ceos balanced that because sometimes those things come into conflict conflict no question they sometimes come into conflict look. I think this has been developing for a while. I can tell you that a lot of the ceos of the business roundtable looked at this nineteen nineteen ninety-seven statement their predecessors had adopted and said oh my god that's not the way i run my company. What are they talking about so i think this thing has been building for for a decade as c._e._o.'s come under pressure from their employees to some extent from their customers and to some extent from the political environment to do a better job job focusing on maximizing their positive benefits for society and i think you're starting to see some results from that. That's why at fortune. We do the the annual change the world list. We'll get examples of companies that are really making progress addressing social problems as part of their core business activity you made the comment in the peace and fortunate that more and more ceos have been worrying way you put it was public support for the system in which they've operated is in danger of disappearing is that a real clear and present danger angel the ceos flack from american capitalism as we've known abdin float in different ways and change but the way we've known it for your career for my career is actually in danger of disappearing. Oh some of them definitely feel that way. I don't know that it's a universal feeling but i've had in the last three years any number of private in conversations with ceos who've talked about fear of losing their license to operate one c._e._o. Of a fortune one hundred company said to me. We have about two two years to figure this out and if we don't were in trouble now what does that mean. Does that mean that all of a sudden capitalism is going to cease to exist. The companies are going to be shut down no but even if you look at the ramp up of regulation that occurred in the last few years of the obama administration in a way that's a sign of it you talk what about elizabeth warren the kind of the leftward lurch of the democratic party. That's a sign of it too. I mean the way the operating licence gets retracted is not in in one simple move but in gradual moves eroding the foundations of our capitalist system so i think it's a very real fear so you think of warren on the left and trump. I don't even want to say on the right call trumpism which is obviously not yet really in line with traditional american. Capitalism is kind of some of these c._e._o.'s are saying. Is you always hear you know who's the centrist candidate. Who's a centrist. Party are the kind of thing that's us. Yeah i and i think in fact that's the case you know. Twenty sixteen was critical year for this corporate movement because two things happened. One was the brexit vote in the u._k. When the entire political incorporate establishment was saying you must vote yes and the u._k. Voted no no and then at the same time in the u._s. For the first time in my lifetime you had this election where on the one hand you had donald trump rejecting globalization shen that had driven business prosperity since world war two and on the other hand you had bernie sanders a self proclaimed socialist almost getting the nomination you had a lot of business people say hey wait a minute. There's no one in this race who represents my views and it is interesting dan on many issues the c._e._o.'s <unk> are far more. Let's say progressive than the republican party. Climate change equal opportunity diversity gay rights issues abused human rights issues. You'll see now the corporate sector actually being way out in front of the republican party but then when you move to the economic okay issues they certainly aren't going where elizabeth warren and the green new deal folks are going so they have really emerged as kind of the center of the u._s. Political inspector how much of that is the person and i don't know how this is all balanced this. That's obviously different from company to company but how much of that is the personal politics of the c._e._o.'s do you think is you know because we work together. I spent a lotta time interviewing ceos. There are some of them who personally feel this and feel it quite quite passionately. There are others who may be more reactive but it's pretty hard to ignore. We're an economy today. That has a very tight labor market where talent talent is the most important differentiator where companies really have to compete for talent and this is one of the ways they do it. They know that millennials in particular one of worked worked for companies that they feel are doing good in the world and so they think it's important that they get their positive stories out there and hardly any big company is immune from that trend dan dan. There's a whole group of companies that use to sort of try and say out of the limelight and keep quiet who now want to tell their stories because they think it's important their employee's think they're doing good in the world. Coke industries is an interesting example that companies like bacterial that never liked to talk to the press. Now wanna talk because they i need to get their story out because they want employees to come to work for them. I think it's been pretty hard for people to resist the strand one hundred eighty one c._e._o.'s sign this revised is with this new mission statement for the business roundtable but there were some notable folks who didn't sign against eight companies that didn't sign and it's not sector-specific financials like blackstone industrials like alcoa a healthcare like kaiser permanente insurance state farm and he sends a why those companies didn't sign because they are by far in the minority here. I wouldn't want to speak on their behalf half. I think some of those are companies that are facing significant shareholder pressure. If you really have a shareholder movement organized against you. I suspect it's not a great idea yeah to sign a business roundtable statement that say shareholders don't matter as much as they used to so. I think that's part of it. I couldn't tell you why <hes> company like kaiser permanent. They didn't assigned because in terms of the principles reflected a saving. I know they operate by those principle so but i just haven't done the reporting to have specific answers for you allen murray c._e._o. I am president of fortune. The latest issue is on newsstands which are things that still exist. You pick it up. Thank you for joining us. Thanks dan
Yeshiva Student Found Stabbed to Death in West Bank

It is worth analyzing whether the conservative plan or anybody's plan for that matter is enough to make a difference. Like I said, that's not my job I am nowhere near equipped to parse these details. A neither probably are you, but I do know someone who is. Jordan. He throwing 'em. This is the big story. Katherine heyhoe. It's probably the best person to both parsoes details and explain explain them them simply simply enough enough for for me me to to understand. understand. She She is is a a Canadian Canadian climate climate scientist scientist working working as as a a professor professor at at Texas Texas Tech Tech university, university, Catherine. Catherine. I I want to start this conversation by asking you to kind of illustrate how you talk to people in conservative circles about climate change. And I know there was a particular incident. A couple of weeks ago, the kind of made some headlines. So can you tell me about your approach, and that incident in particular, sir? So a thermometer, isn't blue or red or even green. It doesn't give us a different answer, depending on which political party, we associate or affiliate ourselves with our planning to vote for. And when we look at the science, the science is very clear. Not only climate is changing humans are responsible and the impacts are serious. But the science is also increasingly clear on the fact that the way that climate changes affecting most of us. Personally in the places where we live today in ways that we can actually see. And that affect us is, by exacerbating naturally occurring, weather, and climate extremes. So just as an example, we're seeing that heat waves, like we saw last summer are becoming more frequent and much more severe. We're seeing that heavy rain events, which we've been experiencing across the country, the last few years have become a lot more frequent and also a lot more severe. We're seeing that wildfires are burning greater area because we have hotter and drier conditions. And of course, we see that sea level rise is threatening our coasts and permafrost in the Arctic is melting faster and faster every new study that they publish. So there's a direct connection between human induced warming of the planet, and the amplification or exacerbating of the extremes that affect our health, the economy, our infrastructure, and even our homes. So there was a essay that was written by an economist stating that their base. Weekly was no link between human induced climate change and extremes. And that piece, was put on Twitter by Lisa rate and by Andrew Scheer. So I replied to Lisa. And I said, that's really not true. No hurricanes are not increasing in number. We know that in. No scientists have said that they are. But, for example, they're getting stronger and bigger and slower. And they've a lot more rainfall associated with them. And there's all the other teaches in extremes that we've seen before. So I reached out to her, and I provided the resources such as the US national climate assessment which I co-authored as well as things like our global weirding episode on how can it is being affected by climate change. And she responded, very positively. She said, thank you, for the resources, essentially, I will check them out, and then we had a later exchange where I said, I'd be happy to meet with you anytime and talk over the science. And she said that would be great. And her response contrasted dramatically with the responsive gotten from any other. Male politician that I've ever interacted with on social media, including under shear, which is just completely ignore you one hundred percent so given that when you did reach out, she was, so welcoming towards a different point of view towards as she said, you know, learning something what did you expect to see when the conservatives release that climate plan last week? Well as far as I know she was not a major architect of the plan. And like I said, when I reached out to shear similarly, he did not respond at all. So I wasn't sure what to expect. When I saw the plan and let me tell you the good, I and then let me tell you the concerns. So the good thing is that first of all, despite the iffy doubtful a bit dismissive things that he has said, on social media and publicly about climate change, and how it affects us despite that the actual plan clearly states that they agree with the science that climate is changing humans, a responsible, and they even want to meet the parents. Agreement target. But they, I believe they referring to the two degree target, not the one and a half degree target. So that's that's good. The fact for sure. Yes. And that's the way it should be. Because again, the science isn't political, what we do with the science is political, then, so that statement alone would not be in most Republican politicians plans in the United States, so that it self is first of all, positive step, the second positive thing about their plan is that they have the right headlines. So they talk specifically about all the different sectors. And Canada are emissions come from. They talk about adept Haitian and resilience. They talk about indigenous peoples. They have the headlines, they have the topics that we need to address. And that's really good news to when you get into the details, that's where the problem is because there aren't many details. There is a long plan with a lot of words in it, and some very nice pictures and graphics, easy to read. But there isn't a lot of detail. How exactly are they going to put a cap on industry? What does that cap gonna look like? How is this plan going to actually reduce our emissions? There's no estimate of that. So how do you know if you're going to meet the Paris agreement if you don't even know how your plan is going to reduce emissions? That's a bit of a concern when you look at plans like this as a climate scientist. What are you looking for? Well, the climate system doesn't care how we cut our missions. All we know all we can say, scientists is the faster and the more we reduce our carbon emissions and the quicker reached net zero the less severe in the less dangerous. The impacts will be on us in Canada as wells and others around the world. So from a scientific perspective, the more we reduce the faster. We do that the better now as a human. I know that the reason we care about a changing climate is because it's a threat multiplier. So it takes the issues that we already struggle with today. Whether it's health issues economic issues issues of. National security, infrastructure, and more. The exacerbates them are makes them worse. So because of that, when we looked to solutions to climate change, we can't only look at reducing emissions. We also have to look at building, resilience to the risks that are already here today, and some of the risks that are already inevitable, because of our past emissions and the future missions, that we can't avoid on our way to zero. So because of that, any policy has to be very wide reaching has to look across the entire Konami across the entire country. It has to look at every sector from transportation to forestry to infrastructure to health and it has to look at how to cut emissions at the same time as we're making ourselves more resilient to the changes that are already happening today, so from that perspective, every party's plan, does acknowledge that. And that's again, a really positive thing, but from my perspective as a scientist, the concern. -servative plan not having any specific targets. Not having any specific numbers. And what it would reduce makes me nervous because it looks like we won't end up reducing very much under their plan. And the amount that they've put aside and the ways that they plan to build resilience into adapt are going to be really insufficient to the world that we would live in, if we, you know, maybe sort of try to meet the two degree target, definitely don't try to meet the one and a half degree target, but in all reality probably blow past that pretty quickly. Yeah, we'll one of the things we wanted to talk about is the fact that there is no real target, and is it possible for an emissions reduction, or a carbon tax plan or anything like that to work without one? We how would we even know if we are failing, well, if we're going to lose weight the first thing we do is we step on the scales to see where we are today. And in the second thing, we do is, we set a target if we don't have at target. We don't have anything to. Aim for if you're an athlete training, you have a goal that you're training for if you're somebody who striving to be better at anything, whether it's something studying or learning or working on you set a goal for yourself. That's just how we as human beings operate. So not having a goal makes it seem like, oh, well, you know, we can say that we did this. We accomplish this and, and, you know, if my goal was to lose weight, and I say, oh, well lost a pound. I accomplish my goal. Yeah. But I'm still way above where I actually should be. So that, that's why I'm concerned is that there's again there's a lot of pages. There's a lot of words. There's the right titles, for sure. But we have to get serious about this, and to be serious, you need a goal, and that goal has to actually reflect reality, not just sort of pie in the sky Sherwood can meet the Paris target. We have to look at, well, what do we actually have to do to meet the Paris target and can we do it? And one of my concerns is the fact that there's a lot of were of language around incentivizing business to develop new green technology. But what they totally avoid is any mention of the fact that fossil fuels are heavily and massively subsidised in Canada, in the United States and around the world in the US fossil fuel subsidies, according to the International Monetary Fund, which just estimated these this year fossil, fuel subsidies in the US alone are greater than the Pentagon's budget. Really? Yes globally. They are subsidized per second to the tune of somewhere around. Hundred seventy thousand US dollars per second. And so if we leave these massive market, distorting subsidies on our fossil fuels then how can you really incentivize development of new green technologies to trying to roll a boulder up a hill? So dealing with these either through a price on carbon or through through actively removing the tax breaks in the subsidies and charging them for the climate impacts in the damages that the extraction processing and burning causes in less. You do that. It isn't a level playing field. And if you don't have a level playing field pretty much every communist in the world agrees that you're not gonna get the tech development at the pace that we need. We'll let me ask you then about how the other is compare how have the liberals done would you give them a passer fail as somebody who watches this closely? Okay question. It's so funny because of course in Canada, the liberals are actually, the centrist party, right? I mean, you think liberals kind of at the left end of the spectrum down there. Yes. Yes. And, and so the liberals are trying to walk the fence between taking significant and meaningful steps to cut carbon, which a nationwide carbon tax certainly is. But at the same time they're trying to be very pragmatic and recognize that we need the money to actually do some of the stuff because we don't want to just take everybody's tax revenues and use that ourselves. And because we need that money, and because we have to have they'll coal country onboard, which includes L, Berta and B C. That's why we have to have the pipeline and we're going to actually use the revenues from the pipeline for good to accomplish our long term goals. So one day they announced the climate emergency, and then the next day out the approval of the pipeline. And what does that mean? It means that they are standing on the top of very narrow. Fence getting shot at from both sides will. Greta Thurn Berg, the young climate activists tweeted last week right after Trudeau's government approved ATM X pipeline again that quote one second, they declare climate emergency, and the next second, they say yes to expand a pipeline.

"Point five WDBO ABC's Jonah Miller is joining us this morning from Jerusalem and Giordano the elections. There seemed like a classic American issue at least lately, and that is no real clear winner. But there are people declaring themselves winners. That's right poets is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his challenger general bennigan's declaring victory. But as the votes were counted overnight, a clearer picture is emerging. And that is that most likely it looks like Israel, Prime Minister, the incumbent is about to embark on a historic fish term in office. The valley the vote tally. Now seems to be putting his Likud party at thirty five kind of his challenger centrist party. But here it is a parliamentary system it's all about the parties. And if we look at the right wing parties, they performed very well, and they have a larger lock in the left wing parties. And that means that only Netanyahu will really be able to put together a ruling coalition. It's highly doubtful that any of them will defect and join up with the left. So it's we're still waiting for the official results. But it is quite clear to most people here in Israel as the sun came up that Netanyahu is going to be the next prime minister. He will now become he will he's set to become is longest serving prime minister. Are there any announcements scheduled Giordano from the challenger is is he has he conceded. The race. His not a conceded. The race of any guns. Did put out a statement to his followers saying, we we we had a great night. And we are considering our next steps he will now be in the opposition. Which also here in Israel. It's very important blow, obviously in the political scene. He does deserve some credit. He really gave Netanyahu run for his money. But the electorate here in the end rallied around Netanyahu, the potential criminal charges against him. Simply did not dissuade them from their support. It's in caused them to abandon him in a sense. They really rallied around him his Likud party actually picked up five seats, which means not only his base was there for him.
