"This your real world NBA. Designed for the new now. I'm Kim as a rally and thanks so much for joining us today. The business world is full of pivots, but few have redirected their careers quite the way Christy Turlington Burns has done to have enormous impact. One of the world's most famous supermodels she has spent the past ten years creating and building a highly effective nonprofit mother counts. The goal of every mother counts is to bring down the number of maternal deaths worldwide, the death rate is unacceptably high says, Christie including in the US and most of those deaths are preventable. Every mother counts provides the education advocacy and support that's making a difference but getting the organization to where it is today was a long journey. It started with Christie's own experience in childbirth and her desire to make pregnancy and birth safe for every mother. Building this nonprofit has taught her invaluable lessons in leadership and had built an organization with impact. I sat down with Christie to her fascinating journey and what she's learned along the way. Kristie, thanks so much for joining me. Thank you so much for having me. Kristie you became world-famous at a very young age through your incredibly successful modelling career, and since then you have really used your power for purpose to address the critical issue of maternal health through the founding of every mother counts. For our listeners, can you tell us a little bit about every mother counts? I founded every mother counts in two, thousand ten and the impetus for getting involved in maternal health and becoming an advocate for global maternal health was a personal experience when I delivered my daughter grace who's now sixteen almost seventeen I had a postpartum complication. You know at the time, it was very ready and prepared for this phase of my life and I felt well supported in had lots of options for my healthcare. And yet the unexpected happened. But that experience really opened my eyes to a global tragedy,.

"Here's something good for today. You've probably seen her face even if you don't know her name Christy Turlington Burns rained for years as one of fashion's top models her face on magazine covers in every corner of the planet. But since two thousand and ten, she is focused on a mission that is strikingly different but equally global ensuring that every woman everywhere experiences a safe pregnancy and childbirth. As, the founder every mother counts Christie has been bringing positive change to the worldwide crisis of maternal mortality a crisis. So large that every year three, hundred and three thousand women die as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. Christie calls these quote stupid debts because they are so unnecessary. Every mother counts helping through its awareness campaigns, lobbying and fundraising that supports the ground organizations. Now the original impetus for every mother counts was Christie's own experience with the birth of her daughter grace in two thousand three. Christie suffered dangerous complications that led her to think about the situation of women who don't have her advantages or access to good healthcare. I talked to Christie for this week's episode of made by women. In this brief excerpt Christie tells about the moment she realized that maternal mortality was a much bigger issue than she thought, and that's a huge concern not only in the developing world but in the US well. Here's what she had to say. You started every mother counts in twenty ten. Can you tell us a little bit about the issue itself and you know we often think about maternal mortality being a developing world issue but I think you've educated us to the fact that that's in fact completely false. I think when I started to learn about maternal mortality I really like I was shocked because I thought you know I'm becoming a mom and I don't even know that that that. This is an issue still like in the twenty first century that women are dying bringing life into the world so that that first realization than like digging a little bit deeper for me I think once they learned that there was a problem I thought. Okay. Well, clearly, this is happening in in low income countries. If it's happening at all it's happening in places where you know there's an infrastructure and there isn't a health system and then I learned you know in that process of exploring was happening outside of the United States that the US was ranked or ably also, we are in our second decade where the term mortality rates have. Tended to be on the rise, and we are one of only two industrial. Industrialized countries with a rising maternal mortality rate back in two thousand and three. When I became a mom I think we're ranked forty first in the world and today we are ranked fifth. So we've fallen really far behind in just ten years just a decade. So you know I look at this issue as a global tragedy which it is, and still there's this education curve. Letting people understand that the United States is part of a global community. So before starting in the organization I, actually documentary film that thumbs called no woman no cry and so between two, thousand, eight, thousand, ten, I travel around the world really documenting stories of women and families, and really the film became this great medium for people to be able to see like their strangler statistics. But then to be able to see the faces, your women speaking about their struggles, their challenges but then also putting a framework which was look what can be done and so getting bad awareness and bringing people into that conversation notches, heads of state or policy makers everyday people. Christy Turlington Burns has had so much impact over the last ten years. Every mother counts has saved innumerable lives and has touch more than seven, hundred, thousand people around the world. So here's something good for today. Christy Turlington Burns shows us what happens when you use your power for purpose. Her story also reveals how important it is to keep an open mind to learn to grow and change as we become aware of new facs. There are lots of ways that you can.

"Your brain gets bigger your skin. It's blood so you look you know ten or fifteen twenty years younger you know. I'm ninety six. I looked pretty good. your heart gets more blood your sexual organs get more blood so all the ways that matter most were so much more dynamic and you can be experiencing these changes in ours not years and so then then the becomes an equation. Like oh what I gained so much more than what I give up. Yeah I like eating cheeseburgers with boy. I like having sex even better. Gosh I like not having chest pain anymore and I can make love with my spouse and I can walk across the street and I go to work. I could play with my kids. I can all the things that make fun and meaningful those are choices worth making K next question. You say in your book. That fifty percent of men who smoke cigarettes are impotent. If so why specifically and can quitting and eating plant based Diet reverse bodily damage from smoking? Yeah it's the same principle. Nicotine mix arteries constrict. So it's like the Anti Viagra so in your face and makes you wrinkle faster. In fact Christy Turlington. Supermodel has a wonderful website call. Smoking IS UGLY DOT COM. Because her father died of lung cancer is she said you know if you talk about. You know smoking's bad for everybody knows that it's too scary to think. Something battle happened so people don't WanNa think about it but if you say smoking makes you ugly because it makes your skin look ten to twenty years older because of the blood constrict since you get wrinkles and you get that great pallor. Well that's a different thing you know And so the same is true. Why guys ribbit goes it. Constricts blood flow to your penis and why smoking causes heart attacks because it constricts the blood flow to your heart so when you change things you know there are studies that have shown that people who quit smoking that a year or so their risk of getting heart attacks is as low as if they'd never smoked so these you can get better quickly you can get worse quickly within hours in some cases and certainly within days to weeks so part of what we've learned is that in the book. I wrote earlier called. The spectrum was based on the finding that in all of our studies. The more you change the more you improve and the better you feel in every way we can measure at any age you know. I thought that the younger people with less severe disease would do better but I was wrong. It wasn't how old they were. It wasn't how sick they were. It was simply a function of the more. You Change Your Diet Lifestyle. The more you improve at any age which is a great message to be able to give people. And that's why I love what you're doing because to me awareness always the first step in healing and so when people watch this and hopefully can be inspired to make these changes and they start to do it and ironically you know you can either sort of easier way into it. Which is what the spectrum was about where you can make really big changes all at once and sometimes actually paradoxically is easier to big changes all at once because when you make changes you feel so much better so quickly especially if you have an engine or other things like that and you can see from your own experience how much better you feel then it becomes worth doing again because it refrains from doing it to prevent something bad from happening years down. The road does I. Oh my quality of life is so much better user choices worth making not to live longer feel better. What are your thoughts on alcohol? Can people just get the same benefits of wine from non fermented wine juice? Which is grape juice? The whole great even better the grape is You know it turns out that there were so many studies it's become also mean actually has become a mean that people who drink moderately live longer than those who don't drink at all or who drink more than two glasses a day but there was a major review article that came out of the land set the Premier International Medical Journal a few months ago. That actually reviewed those. What they found was that it was an artifact that the people who didn't drink at all didn't live as long as those who had one or two drinks a day because often the reason they didn't drink at all is because they were sick and they didn't want any alcohol because they were they had chronic diseases. So if you control for that it actually every drink that you have increases your risk of getting sick now. That doesn't mean you should never drink. But don't kid yourself don't you don't start drinking to think because it's GonNa make you healthier and the polyphenols and the five dollars and all the things that you find in the grapes are really what provide the benefit and actually I also think that the reason why people who drink one or two drinks a day were found to live longer is because who are the people who drink one or two drinks a day. What are they doing their happy? Like the type of drink together. You know let's sit down let's unwind. Let's be with our social supported you know. I wrote a book years ago. Called Love and survival reviewed what were then hundreds and now tens of thousands of studies that people who are lonely and depressed or three to ten times more likely to get sick and die prematurely for pretty much everything when compared to those have a sense of loving connection and community anything medicine that has that kind of power impact. So if you want to hang out with your friends and have some grape juice. That's going give you the benefits. What about oil? How much more does that affect us than a whole foods plant based I can get the same effects or doesn't give us something super special well? The CD can help to reduce inflammation but sugar and fat and animal protein especially can cause inflammation so you may not need the CD doing all these other things and since most people are not eating a perfect diet then those things can can help times. Okay and what are your thoughts on? Saunas and steam bats. Are they helpful? Or Harmful Sodas Zine Bass and exercise in general. Make you sweat. You know most things that are worth doing make you sweat and so that accent it could be helpful but also because it that's how your body detoxify itself through through your your your nation and your feces but also your skin is your largest organ so anything that helps you eliminate things can be useful now. Obviously if you have heart disease you have to be careful not to spend too much time to sonner seen bath because it it brings blood to the surface of your skin often diverted from your heart which to help a person. It's not a big deal but in someone who's barely getting enough blood flow can be can be a problem for the same reason. Intermittent fasting helps you better fast as well because it allows your body to toxic Fai and get rid of what's already there as opposed to continually putting stuff in and one of the easiest ways to do that is just to have a really light dinner and try not to eat very late. So if you don't even say past six or six thirty and you don't have a breakfast until eight or ten hours later. Then you're kind of getting a fast and you're gonNA your sleep will be that much more powerful as well because instead of trying to process food your body is actually being able to heal detoxify. And it's one of the reasons why sleep deprivation so strongly with Alzheimer's because that's how your brain detoxify sleep. I love my sleep. Okay last question. How would you encourage people to eat and adopt a healthy lifestyle? Has you say how? Can we turn the fear of dying into the joy of living because of what we talked about earlier? There's no point in giving up something that you enjoy unless you get something back. That's better and quickly. And because these underlying biological mechanisms we've been talking about are so dynamic to the degree that you change your diet and lifestyle. You're likely to feel so much better. So quickly in ways that really matter dinner refrains the reason for changing them from fear of dying or something bad happening to joy and pleasure and love and feeling good. That's that's ultimately. What makes these sustainable. And so I would just think and you can do it. One of two ways one a small gradual changes you know To the degree that you make these changes. You're going to feel better so have me lose Monday. You know Which by the way we'll help the planet and also it turns out that it takes fourteen times more resources to make a pound of meat based protein plant based product and we have enough food to feed everybody no one ego hunger. I was the board of the San Francisco Food Bank. I was shocked to find that one out of five people in the bay area goes to bed hungry every night. It's pitiful it's unexcusable and we can actually do something about it..

"Are because I never present myself that way. I'm not I've never really the presenting myself in in any kind of way like that. I think with media certainly 'cause I think.

Thank you very much for being with us. Thank you really important important issue then. We turn now to another woman who was a lot of hats so to speak former. US Ambassador Samantha Power has been an activist journalist and author and into policy makeup her first book on genocide a problem from Hell won a Pulitzer Prize but when she served on President Obama's National Security Council and later Zomba's embassador to the United Nations. She found the too often the road to hell is paved with good intentions. She sat down with Walter Isaacson to discuss a new memoir the education education of an idealist Samantha. Thank you for being with us. Thank you Walter. This is an extraordinarily personal intimate memoir and really begins with your relationship with your father and sort of growing up reading mystery stories in Apar- in Ireland when you were a kid good. Tell me about that so the pub in Dublin was called hearkens still exists. It's a bit grimy. It's probably not the not the place I would want my children to be hanging out reading mysteries but there was some. There's something at least in my memory that's quite magical about my father who died subsequently when I was fourteen years old so who I don't have as many memories as I would like to have with but he would bring me to the pub he he would park me next to him that he was such regular of this pob and unfortunately with such a big drinker that the seat at the bar was called the seat of power for Jim Power My dad and I would sit next to him and then I would go down into the basement and I would just while the hours away reading my books and coming up when I was done with one looking for another he'd run out to the car. Get me another one and again no environment for a child but when you're a child the the fact that you can capture your father's attention when you need needed you know can end up being the the only measure of the man and that's how I felt at the time I certainly didn't feel at that time like I had a difficult childhood but what my mother and my father separated and there was no divorce in Ireland back then so the options for her she had met somebody else also an Irishman from Dublin and they wanted to build a life together so they decided to make their move to this country but it ended up in tragedy because after we came to America and really before I got to spend more meaningful time with my dad. My father died to me very suddenly and you talk so much about the anxiety that came out of that and that seemed very useful to readers not to that people like yourself. Yeah can be deeply anxious because yet in some ways choose to move to when you were in America between your mother and your father and then his drinking happened and then you're dealing you with the rest of your life you deal with. It and you don't even know what you're carrying you know. I think it's it's for me. It was years later before it really started to unpack. Just the sense of responsibility wants ability. I felt as often is the case with children who grow up to be adults and look back. They they exaggerate they they impose their adult cells on their a child selves and think that when they were children they had the power in the agency that they have when they're looking back and saw unpacking all that was really important but yes. I was I again whether because of these events or for other reasons but I found myself at different times in my life actually usually when I was in unstressed environments Armaments with just her riddick kind of constricted breathing and and it was often the case that I was this could could free myself these feelings only when I was for example a war correspondent or when I was operating under a deadline or you know even later in life when I was in a very high stakes negotiation whereas when things were still you know whatever lay within would sort of come bubbling up and and so you know I write about trying therapist understand that a little bit and you know. Sometimes you feel very alone when you're going through episodes like that or you're feeling I mean people have M- many more significant challenges I have faced but whether it's that or writing about our efforts to conceive a child and infertility IVF and all of that. It's just just life and this is what it looks like. It doesn't look like the veneer you know of of all these Polish people running around the great saying that I come back to in the book which is never compare your insides to somebody else's outsides and I feel like there's something thing deepen that but part of the open up the insides and then let people know out there that that you know everybody has their struggles. Tell me about getting to know the Obama came about because he read a problem from Hell the book on American responses to genocide and and I was surprised he was the only senator who reached out to me had reached out to me at that point at least having read the book and I thought maybe he'd want to talk about the book and its narrow sense focusing specifically on mass atrocities and what could be done on this or that but in fact he was really interested in it was a very creative read or kind of broader read in sort of what that set of responses indicated about the tendency of the US government not to think about human consequences more broadly on a whole set of issues and he was new to the Senate on the Senate relations committee and wanting to put forth already what he called a tough smart and humane approach to foreign policy so you become a foreign policy adviser to his during the campaign and you get to know cash son Stein who becomes your husband I do all rolled into one yeah well that one that was a bit of a miracle. That's more serendipity because I with sitting at my desk one day and casts a received a letter excuse me an email from Kazakhstan the gasoline whose books I've read and and the email basically was an email lambasting the state of the campaign or at least one subset of the campaign that worked on Obama's rule of law aw ideas and Santa last email. He didn't mean to blast Senate to one person mistake completely. I am thinking taking did he. Just send to that one person because it was addressed to one person. Am I the only one and then very soon I realized it had gone to the entire. Obama campaigns and that made you decide you wanted to marry. I would just like everyone else. Nobody else is going to marry him. No I thought to myself I've done that and it sucks in my heart. I just went out to cass sunshine and so I wrote him. I said I'm just don't worry about it and next time you're in Boston. Let's get a coffee. I promise you people will forget and next thing. I knew we were married well. He had to walk us through your big mistake. Yeah he which is on book tour you make the mistake of offhandedly using the word monster when you're talking about Hillary Clinton now our and so we have to step down from the campaign for a while in the penalty box the Sin Bin is my Irish relatives called it. Indeed is my first campaign. You know I was so emotionally invested I did not have a kind of distance or the experience of prior campaign so you know what we're probably in retrospect pretty traditional a a maybe not ideal campaign tactics but a bit run of the mill for me. Were just these transgressions these outreach and so basically I went off often was all upset about something that the Clinton campaign was doing and then reporter published it and it included the denigrating integrate comments about Senator Clinton and it was mortifying for the first time really since the community.

"And that's what makes it so urgent and we sat down in New York to talk about her campaign. Every mother counts Christy Turlington Burns. Welcome to of the program. We have just seen a really dramatic piece in my introduction to you of a very intimate scene in which you are in distress in labor. You've just given birth to your child and then it gets very dangerous. Few 'cause you hemorrhage. Remind us of what happened. When you give birth to your daughter grace yes so after very very good pregnancy complications at all lots of birth options a great team taking care of me and a supportive partner. the unexpected unexpected happened. I delivered grace. I didn't know that she was going to be a girl. So the most exciting thing was that I was meeting my daughter for the first time and then after we're having a you know a few minutes really bonding with her. She latched onto breastfeed. Everything was going well as it should be and I was you know sort of euphoric. I can feel the the feeling in the room just changed the nurses and the midwife got a little bit nervous and what I later learned was that after a certain period of time when the Placenta doesn't expel it becomes quite toxic inside the body and so so it needed to be extracted attracted and because I had an unmedicated natural delivery that meant without any pain medication or anything like that what about it talk to your activism because you could have thought well you know it was my bad luck. You know it took a little while to process. I would say the I think in those first few days as I was sharing my story where people would come to visit me or and I would talk about it and I learned that other people had a similar kind of complication or other complications that I was not aware of in my pregnancy but then I don't know year or so later when I was pregnant with my son I was able to travel to El Salvador which is where my mom was born and where I spent some in time in my youth and visiting an NGO and some programs there. That's where I had the Aha moment is about six months pregnant and my mother's country and on we're in very poor communities hours away from the capital city and in one particular site visit where we were visiting a water project a lot of women had come either with small children on their backs or pregnant and that's where I kind of put my feet in their shoes and I thought had I had the delivery with my daughter in this community where women had to walk miles to get to clean water where all of the homes were ten rude where there was no electricity with the roads were paved saved and where you're two hours away from a hospital. I learned that a woman could bleed out with the same complication I had if you don't get to that emergency obstetric care with into two hours maybe sooner and I was stunned to learn. I assume you were that in terms of maternal mortality the US is the only Western country where this is is rising exactly so in two thousand three when I delivered my daughter the global estimate was five hundred and thirty thousand girls and women were estimated to die every year and those numbers hadn't budged conduct decades it was only when I was travelling in El Salvador that I learned where the US was and I was shocked to learn that the US was ranked forty first at that time ah I learned also that really of all the developed countries in the world we are doing the worst we're one of thirteen countries with a rising maternal mortality rate and that was completely clearly shocking and I learned a New York that were also really poorly ranked in fact New York City African American women are twelve times more likely to die than Caucasian women and that's three or four times more than the national average which is shocking. Why is this happening here in the United States. What is it that makes this this this figure keep rising. It's interesting because the US is complex for many reasons it could be fifty countries versus fifty states when I was going through the exploration of figuring out how I would be a good advocate. I went back to school to work in a masters in Public Health at Columbia and then I started a documentary film and that film No woman no cry was really Kinda thesis in a way of my exploring lower the barriers and challenges in a number of countries and the US was part of that exploration process. There are a number of reasons why we're doing so poorly for one we have a lot of chronic health conditions that are on the rise such as diabetes and obesity that impacts the outcomes of pregnancy not only for babies but for mother's there's also racial disparities that are have been a problem for for a very long time but now we're really focusing on what's driving that and what we're learning from talking to women and hearing more stories from women women who experience near-misses which is very very common if women don't die there twenty to thirty others who will suffer lifelong disabilities related to childbirth and pregnancy and we're hearing from women that they're not listened to or their disregarded in hospitals. The stats are a crazy. Some doctors can enter the specialty of maternal fetal medicine even complete training without spending any time in the Labor delivery unit. I mean it's extraordinary. Serena Williams obviously a major star who had her first baby girl a nearly died in that process she also wrote about it and focused on what you're talking about. which was the racial disparity? What can be done about? What does your organization do well. We've been really trying to educate the public about about this as an issue generally at the local level at the national level at the international level but we've also tried to really invest in healthcare providers mid level providers not every pregnancy requires a physician. We partner with a lot of community led organizations. It's very important for women who are most vulnerable to see themselves and the providers that that provide care for them and so it's really important for them to be getting care pre. Nataly as well as throughout their pregnancies and postpartum. We try to educate people about family planning and family spacing which is controversial all but it is the most effective way to keep the mother safe. I'm throughout the rest of it must be gratifying to you to see and I think it's for the first time that all the major Democratic presidential candidates are putting this issue pretty heavily on their agenda. Are You satisfied satisfied with the way the Democratic candidates are pledging to combat this. I an I mean ten years ago. When I started every mother counts there were a few bills that were introduced. I and they just passed at the end of twenty eight ten years and years. I spent an early part of this year actually in May around Mother's Day on the hill talking to members on both sides and a lot of them had the attitude of what we pass these other two things. Why do we need war and if there are Democrats introducing these bills we you don't WanNa be on their side so we can't possibly so that's frustrating the way that it works at the government level you film and You you talked about no woman. No Oh cry and their scenes from other parts of the world where you were investigating this and we're going to play a clip and this one's from Tanzania and it's all about a woman in distress trying to get get to somewhere safe a hospital to have her baby. We're not turtle. Laurent Bio one idea particularly Wendy do neither did I but certain Janet's Labor is not progressing and the threat of death for both baby and mother is palpable with no money to pay for food food or transport the nurses ask us to help. We arranged for a van to take Janet the nearest hospital an hour away did did that shock you that you actually had to intervene. There was nobody else but your team to actually pay for vehicle to take this woman to somewhere safe clinic to have her baby. I mean I think if we hadn't been there. Probably the nurses would have come together and found some way to pull together funds and they do do that from time to time. It's very I mean I'm not a traditional filmmaker and that was my first film but we did break the fourth wall because the last thing that I wanted to do was sit hit by it watched if we could help at that time I really hadn't taken in that even a hospital. That's forty five kilometers.

"Politics at the moment but the country has to come to terms with the fundamental choices that are posed posed by the brexit referendum not least to the legitimacy of parliament because obviously Britain is a parliamentary democracy and pitted against that now is the result of a referendum and it taken three years ago and it really worries me that the the idea of a no deal brexit no relations with the European Talk Union at all after October thirty first. Should it be normalized in the process of trying to justify the pursuit of the goals set out three years ago and I and as I also said in the introduction the Prime Minister Boris Johnson went to Europe to the seat of Europe in Brussels first time meeting with the head of the the European Commission and by all intents and purposes afterwards. We were told there were no new British proposals put forth to even contemplate some kind of a new or amended deal so it looks like they hurtling towards a no deal. That's what people are saying. Boris Johnson's compared himself to the hulk and said that he'll get out of this not one way or another and get out of the EU one way or another so the question then is given what parliament has dubbed by majority not saying that we cannot have a no deal brexit. Do you believe that the prime minister might kind of break the law and and having no deal brexit anyway away that's a huge point of discussion and debate here in the UK. I find it very hard to believe that a British Prime Minister would disobey the law and and your viewers around the world I think would find it. Extraordinary that country renowned for its pragmatism for its stability should be taking leave of its senses never mind taking leave of his legal history in the way that you describe the good news is that there are parliamentarians willing to stand up for the rule of law aw and they will take this to the ultimate conclusion which eventually is to threaten their support for the government the government now does not have a majority of the ways tried to purge its enemies within the Conservative Party and the important point is the parliament continues to stand up for the for its rights because when the role of MP's MP's is subjugated than democracy itself is at risk and that's why I think the passions are so high and why the attention to the Supreme Court judgement of the Supreme Court case ace that you mentioned is so important there is a way out of this but it involves all sides acknowledging the in the end the people have to be the arbiters of this and so what a final final deal is done including no deal is put to the British people in a final judgment about how to at least end this stage of the Brexit Songa and very quickly quickly. We've only got about forty five seconds less. You've seen David Cameron's ebook the exits he has said he's very depressed and upset about this result and that he you know he accused Boris. Boris Johnson and Michael Grove Form Leave Minister of being economical with the truth truth twisting he said. Are you glad he's saying that now yes. I think it's important that he speaks out. Many people feel that it was his decision to Lawrence the referendum the goes into this mess in the first blaze and I think it is very important that someone from the Conservative Party's able to speak up in this way especially someone with his experience and background. I'm obviously sorry he's depressed rest. I can commend to him a work and international NGO as a way of at least mitigating the frustration that exploitations feel from the sense of impotence that comes from leaving office but there is a world outside politics.

"Welcome to the program everyone. I'm Christiane Amanpour in London where the Supreme Court is hearing arguments in what will surely be one of its most momentous decisions for these times and whether Boris Johnson broke the law by asking the Queen to suspend parliament ahead of the Brexit deadline next month the British prime minister met with e you leaders on Monday Monday who is still waiting a detailed proposal for a deal from Johnson. The Luxembourg prime minister pulled off a bit of political theater holding a press conference next thanks to an empty podium because Johnson didn't want to speak outside near noisy protesters. My guest tonight is David Miliband who served as both British Foreign Secretary and a leading member of the Labour Party. He's now president of the International Rescue Committee and so he's well placed to discuss the other global crisis the fallout from the attack on on Saudi oil installations tear on has denied is responsible and President Hassan. Rohani says that the attacks whoever is responsible are all about the devastating dating proxy war in Yemen a civil visual you now to look at it more as a question of security and stability ability rather than oil but the root cause of goes back to the Yemen problem those that attacked Yemen and in conduct daily bombardments and have leveled great parts of the country and taken hundreds hundreds of thousands of Yemeni lives and supported by waves of American and European armaments. They must be helped l. to answer. David Miller Band is joining me from New York now. Welcome to the program buying Cristiani goes to be with you so let's just take the president of Iran left off talking about the bombings and obviously he was referring to Saudi Arabia and the coalition with the United States and others in Yemen from your perspective Tiv- as President of the IRC and with such an obvious interest in what happens to the people there the refugees just give us a you know a layout of what's happening on the ground what this war is doing to the people that it's not a rescue committee has about six hundred stoff off in Yemen in the northern part which is controlled by the WHO `they rebel alliance and in the South where there are remnants of the Hadid government and a range of other forces else's who are in control. I was in Yemen Myself at this time last year and essentially what's happening. Is that the war strategy that's been prosecuted by by the Saudi led coalition over the last five years four to five years has comprehensively failed in its principal war which was dislodged lodged from sun which used to be the capital of Yemen. It's also failed in its secondary age which was to push back the Iranians. The Iranians are stronger today a than they were four or five years ago and then there's a third element is in the south of the country. The Saudi led coalition is breaking up the United Arab Arab Emirates have essentially backed some secessionist forces and so you're seeing fragmentation in the country and radicalization alongside desperate Humanitarian Aryan crisis twenty four million people are in desperate need of humanitarian aid to survive levels of malnutrition are unprecedented cholera had the largest outbreak last year and so we're that international rescue committee on humanitarian grounds but frankly the country is imprisoned by this political military stalemate stalemate so I mean really extraordinary to hear you even say for nearly five years that this has been going on the tens of millions of people at risk and those who've died and caller all the rest of it. Why do you think and what is your view as to. Who might have been responsible? Why do you think the WHO tease claimed responsibility for the attack on the Saudi installations given what might be the repercussions might hurt them or I think I think that the argument about the relationship between the Hutus and the Iranians is obviously the center of the geopolitics of this dispute a my own view is the WHO have longstanding roots in Yemeni society there a branch of Shia the so-called Zaidi branch of Shia. They don't have historic links things with the Iranians but over the last ten years or so five to ten years those links have strengthened and in the last forty five years the Iranians have seen a cheap way to tweak tweak the tale of Saudi Arabia and its Western allies by supporting the WHO thieves in this civil war of the claim of responsibility is obviously being looked at in a rather sceptical way because the drones that seem to have been used go way beyond anything that the youth of ever shown before for and there are some significant claims of from the US amongst others that the Iranians would behind it but his the terrible truth as a crisis of diplomacy not just in Yemen the Chrysler diplomacy applies across the Middle East and significantly revolves around the role of Iran in the region the US tore up the nuclear agreement agreement which tried to take the table the ultimate weapon that the Iranians were feared to be chasing and of course by backing the Iranians is into a corner by allowing the hardliners in Tehran to say that the reformers were wrong to believe that they could have come to a deal with the West. You've got a situation relation where Iran feels. It's got nothing to lose and so I don't have any background intelligence on the precise location of the the origin of this very devastating strike on the Saudi oilfield. What I do know is that there are more options for the Iranians than there are for the Americans or the Saudis as at the moment that's the case for two reasons. The Iranians are prepared to escalate because they're already being economically strangled and secondly they've shown or it's been shown own over the last seventy two hours that the Saudi defenses of their all important oil installations are very weak indeed and that leaves the American Administration in a real fix because they can talk about being locked and loaded as the president said in his rather unfortunate phrase the day before yesterday but but it's clear that they lack allies strategy for dealing with some pretty incompatible questions in the Persian Gulf so that's really interesting that analysis and and just to be clear after the locked and loaded statement the vice president's chief of staff denied that it necessarily meant a a military intervention but be that as it may and as you say the Administration seems to have a few allies and beef you options in dealing with the rahm nonetheless it's possible that Yemen and it's people could be dragged further into this morass. Here is what the U N Special Envoy for Yemen said about out this outta minimum. This kind of action carries the risk dragging. Yemen into a regional conflagration gratien because if one thing we can be certain and that is this extremely serious incident makes the trenches of a regional conflict that much higher and other personal that much lower and with Yemen in some way or other linked none of that none of that is good you so there is delineating. What's not good for Yemen. We know that Syria is still in the midst of a war Assad what is still trying to neutralize annihilate the remnants of the opposition and there is the potential conflicts and more war in the region you as IRC have put out a rather calamitous or envisioning the catastrophe. That's unfolding in some of the refugee camps inside Syria. We had a report from the ground from there just last week particularly with seventy thousand people many women and children at the alcohol can what as your report saying about that. Matsen griffiths just to finish on that point the U. N. special envoy for Yemen is outstanding a diplomat the only difference I would have with him is he says that Yemen is threatened by being engulfed with glue with regional conflagration. I would say it already is engulfed. That's what twenty four million people in the military need means and the pursuit of the war strategy by the Saudi led coalition is being justified on the grounds that they can't afford to uncompromised with iranian-backed side so Yemen is already the crucible for this The report that we've put out on alcohol is really devastating in reading it shows that over three hundred children have died in the alcohol camp. This is a place you'll right to say. Seventy thousand people that seven seven thousand of them are suspected Isis foreign fighters and they are in a secluded part of the camp where it's very difficult to get in to deliver humanitarian eight. We are there but we're literally seeing children. Under the age of five babies dying in the tents of malnutrition related diseases before they even even get to the health centers that exist in the camp so there is a real tragedy of enormous proportions because these are the innocent victims the wall he's all children under the age of five who are literally a off the end of the lives on the edge of death and our report ought shows that the rate of death has more than doubled since March this year around one hundred and fifty deaths in the run-up to Mars the rate of death has more than doubled and that speaks to the desperate conditions existed but it also speaks to this diplomatic stasis about what happens to the will. Some some countries have volunteered to take them back to face justice. That's the right thing but too. Many are refusing to do so and that leaves the innocent victims as well as the potentially guilty one's stuck so not not to put too fine a point on it but to pivot to to something that's happening right here. In Great Britain which is in the middle of the Brexit mess your former foreign minister foreign secretary on Britain used to actually take very interventionist actions in diplomacy and humanitarian care and trying to solve some of these great global problems and yet brexit seems to be taking all the oxygen out of all of those efforts having said that I just WanNa get your take on and what I said which was the Supreme Court here is about to rule this week on whether the prime minister broke the law in suspending parliament and getting the Queen to agree to that. What is your view on that. What are your right to say that Brexit has sucked the life out of British foreign policy. Let's see over the last three years and threatens to do so for many years to come my view is that Boris Johnson. The prime minister is on the run from parliament. He's on run because he knows he doesn't have a majority for the policy that he's pursuing the policy is that Britain will leave the European Union on the thirty first among Tober whether whether or not there's a deal he's ready to pull us out without a deal and not a single expert will tell you that there's time between the European Council on the seventeenth eighteenth and the the end of October to get through the necessary legislation and so that's why he's on the run and that's why he is flouting constitutional and political norms in such a cavalier way to see the state of British.

"Idea of the supermodel became really popular, you know, and this was a time in fashion where models Cindy Crawford Naomi Campbell. They're celebrities. They become almost bigger than the clothes. They're wearing you know, what was going through your mind. What was going through your head? When this was happening. Well, you know, what can I just say something in retrospect, those girls are more important than the clothes? They're wearing. But in the moment, what was great about supermodels is that they were able to capture attention without being greater than the close. Right. They were personalities but not more than the clothes. They were wearing. But in retrospect, we look at Linda and those images of her you kind of like you really focused on her or Christie or Naomi or something, right? Yeah. Seriously is a very important distinction. I think because a lot of young people. People are deluded, and they think, oh, I wanna be Christy Turlington, but you can't because because Christie really if you know her she's a hard worker, you know, and the main event in her life was not becoming Christy Turlington. It was actually modeling software. So so you say like modern Instagram models. They're focusing too much on the celebrity aspect of modeling. I think I think that they're focusing a lot on the stardom part of it, you know, as opposed to like, the beauty of loving something so much that you do it. You know? And you know, what I have to tell you something. Yeah. It's like, you know, for me, that's an issue in my life. You know, like. Fashion design. I'm just gonna come out and say this has been like sort of a great thing in my life. And it has brought me to the party. But basically it was like my escape. It was my plan. B right. Yeah. Like, my first love is show business at some point. I would like to be remembered for being this entertainer on stage. You know, I don't think I don't think you have to worry about that too much. I think you will be well, thank you. I worried worried worried like the difference between fashion and actually being onstage fashion. Right. You make a fashion show, you show, all of these ideas. And then in the end, it has a very weird negative effect on people like, oh, I'm too fat. Oh, my legs a too short. Oh, not the right color air or something. Right. I'm too old. I'm too young. Whereas like if I stand on stage and just like sing a song and tell a story I have done my job. And it is a beautiful thing. It's been such a pleasure speaking with you.

You want to say, I told you so. Yes, I'd like to I I'm not wonder see I told you. So it's not my phrase. But you know, it is it is fascinating. How it did? So quickly. Yes point, right. Yeah. I tried to summarize. But my mother was not convinced. So you see in if you can quickly convince her why pay less kind of put their money in the wrong place. Why that wasn't the right stunt, even if it got national headlines. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. So it could have been you could say it was your audience that actually was watching and listening to that may not have been there audience. That is a great possibility that people would actually saw the stunt, right? The people that are in marketing are the people that are maybe not shoppers at in the first place. And as we talked about him is that was working on the article the other piece of candlelight was. They were making fun of influencers. So you could say their audience might have enjoyed back a little bit. But really with a click dollars into producing higher quality shoes or higher quality shoes at a higher price the people actually valued. So they can have one margin and not have to face bankruptcy. Higher price shoes that aren't they defeating the purpose of who they are supposed to be. Do you have a did you have a challenging names? They say, you know, they start on already saying it's going to be the perhaps the cheapest you can buy maybe they change the name pale little less little. A good price. Yeah. No. It might have been from the beginning to the challenge of the name itself. But it's it's it's a challenging category in general shoes. Upshur dealing with DSW. It's been a fairly fierce competitor against them. And probably stuck in a lot of the oxygen out of the marketplace. And they they have a small footprint in mall, which are also challenged. Right.

What what was what's next? Oh, well, New York fashion week is kinda why? Yes. And there were just a couple of things that were interesting in this one was just it was just funny. There was buried. Right ending the Michael Kors fall twenty nineteen show. They had this whole collection that was sort of studio. Fifty four inspired disco kind of glamour, and there was berry with Bella Hadid and France summers another model, dancing and singing Copacabana. Oh my God. And he would have been selling. No. I mean, it was John comprise decides that he was wearing an orange jacket that was bedazzled and they said in rainbow jewels for his runway debut, obviously, it must have been made by Michael Kors design collection. And here is my favorite Harper's bazaar wrote. Nobody asked for a live Barry Manilow performance of Copacabana at New York fashion week. But sometimes the universe sends us a blessing. We didn't know we needed. I also one of the other articles. Maybe it was that same one was saying that, you know, by the end of the show it really didn't matter who cared. She just couldn't get Copacabana out of her head. She was forever. Right. Well, I mean there is that aspect of it for Michael Kors. Is it like when you have nothing left to say in fashion. You just call on Barry Manilow. I didn't know he was really still singing much. We saw him not that many years ago. Many years. Yeah, it is. And he's also had a few throat issues and stuff like that. And you know to be honest, and I love Berryman Manno. He he does not sound like he did. But I I really didn't know he was out there performing. But you do know you did see the pictures of him with your friend, Bella Hadid. Of course. Yes. Yes. She was. So they're very close, obviously. Yes. At least during dance numbers a lot of orange in the collection, though. Yeah. He he mashed lots of grays blacks and then orange. Yeah. Kind of interesting. Okay. Other. The other thing was a lot of Christie Brinkley's been out there in the past. We've seen the only Campbell and all that Christy Turlington. Yeah. Or as she's now known Christy Turlington burns, you know, who she doesn't use burden. Yes. Oh, she's married to Ed burns. Right. Yeah. And she walked the runway for the first time since the nineties, which is really quite a major school for Martin. I mean, she's done some ads even with her husband. Yeah. But it was her first catwalk in over twenty years. And she was she ended the Marc Jacobs show in a black feather cocktail dress and black leather boots and a matching fascinating in her hair. So this was. Yeah. It was a month after turning fifty which doesn't really sound that old of me. Well, it doesn't.
