"The announcement that the UN. World. Food program or W P as one the twenty twenty Nobel Peace Prize is being described as an amazing day for its workers in the field. Put their lives on the line to help at risk communities. That's the message from Matthew Lyndale head of the agency's South Sudan operation in these interview with your. News Johnson. He's been explaining how the one thousand in two hundred strong humanitarian team there has been helping communities hit by the worst flooding in decades ongoing violence. So we're thrilled today to have received the Nobel Peace Prize for Twenty Twenty there are a thousand, two, hundred, and fifty will food program start working in south Sudan. Relieve your hunger for and feed more than five million people a year and clearly south Sudan for the World Food Program is one of the most complex operations. A country that's face decades of violence. But it's also having to Manage Economic Downturn Cove nineteen locust infestation more violence which continues persistently and now more recently floods have affected more than eight hundred, thousand people. So for all of WFP in south Sudan a country where we were very hard to to demonstrate the link between violence and hunger and try and stop that link rake that that relationship so that we can actually change people's lives for the better future for us. This is just an amazing day. It is certainly excellent use agency for the more than twelve hundred workers on the ground. You say, maybe you could give me some insight into what they're doing not just in terms of the emergency following the devastating flooding that had which has been the worst in decades. I remember you briefing is just a couple of weeks ago on this, but also in terms of the development projects on the ground to help. Resilience for these communities can go home. So in South Sudan Kaley, there is a massive emergency failure of work given the enormity of the food insecurity problem that the country faces and only in the last five years we faced thirty one pockets of famine. It gives you an idea about how significant the problem is here, but it's not the only problem that we need to face and it's not an emergency response is not the only tool. In all too. But obviously what we're also trying to tune in south Sudan is really the poster child for bringing Emergency Response Development activities and this building activities together as warm and part of that obviously is to change the fundamental problems that are faced by so many south Sydney citizen's issues of isolation, the issues of inequality and yet criti- and marginalization all of which creates the breeding ground or conflict and violence. So through our programs where we`re Supporting rural farmers to be more productive to have enough food for their own communities. But more importantly to create a surplus that they can trade with other communities to link those communities together to link farmer's markets and other markets and thereby creating a positive relationship across ethnic divides US Mutiti divides. Can Act they bring people together these. These that we want to invest more. Easily. Recognized I think in this these fries today and it's not just south Saddam redoing these things but also fundamentally desperately trying to show but those that would manipulate burst the time and have manipulated in the past I held accountable so that this change in south Sudan, it's a country that frankly we've been in for fifty years too long and we aim to make sure that we are not needed in this country. We've talked to make those linkages between development aid and is go and obviously we wish you very best to that and your teams in very difficult circumstances millions have been experiencing displacement and conflicts just last week the Human Rights Council highlighted a report that talked about the use of starvation. As a weapon of war, we've heard even worse than that soldiers being offered the chance to rape women in communities in you of payment I mean, you just can't imagine the kind of conditions. But when you go into a community with the WFP Bana, what is it that the agency brings? What is the agency's added value? So in South Sudan because we've built relationships with communities of the decades of presence here because we are, you know twelve hundred plus strong organization with presence across ten states and a deep relationship with the communities we serve where known entity and we have the logistics tools in our toolbox to be able to access areas. We the helicopters, planes, all-terrain vehicles, canoes, bogs, boats you. We have an enduring sir. We're able to meet people's needs when they're the worst, but we're also able to support organizations other organizations as well as community leaders themselves to make a difference in their communities. So what we are. From perspective able to do is anyone really Priam? Times as a facilitator to bring you a organizations to bring communities together that typically have had problems coming together in this country since twenty eleven since its independence country who vicious periods of civil war and has persistent national conflict local conflict walk WFP has is now trying to do is trying to ensure that our food security presence. Can Be used by other partners because we in this on our own to really facilitate a change in this environment, a fundamental change in what is causing an enabling violence to contain one

Prime Day deals amidst COVID-19
"Prime day Amazon Prime Day, which they said I think they sell more stuff than Christmas. It usually happens in July but was postponed because of Covina, right because of the crazy Dan last week when you were not here. I did let listeners know that while you know it was still on the Q T. Yeah, that I had it on good authority that it would be coming up on October 13 Fantastic 10th, And indeed, it is widely confirmed. Heard here first Worldwide, Exactly as as usually is the case. S So do you want to give just a few details since it is coming up so well, I mean, they're you know, they're they will have all I can't get to my story actually on it. So if you can do it, I can't get to it. Okay? Did you talk about targets? Respond? No, because that that's new and the well, I'll tell you that if you've got the prime story, but target just it's just It's such a coincidence that they are going to actually have their deal. These October. 13th and 14th reaches the same exact days that Amazon prime today is going to isn't that just amazing? But anyway, it it makes sense and and they will be having the return of that right through black Friday, and they will be doing all kinds of special so that people don't have to feel They have to get in on. You know those days because things will go on. They will also do extended price matching policy, so that you know is a good deal. So obviously the idea is to make sure people don't feel they have to crowd into stores on black Friday because there will be deals going on early, they say, by kicking off our holiday deals. Earlier than ever offering Black Friday pricing throughout the full month of November, extending our price match guarantee we're letting guests know they don't need to wait or face the crowds to get the best deal, and obviously there's no membership fee with their red card and you get, you know an extra deal. With that you get an extra fast The that's the optimistic, thoughtful community leader. Take on it. The cynical take is they just are worried that people aren't shopping as much and they're doing everything possible to extend sales and get people. Yes, and I tend to be cynical lot of times, But in this case, I think they're being responsible, too. I really do. I mean, I think I think it could be both. I think the answer is both. Okay? That's
Australia's Victoria reports lowest COVID-19 cases since June
"It's really encouraging to see the numbers really coming down quite low in Victoria we've been waiting a long time for it people in Victoria have been waiting a really long time for it, but there does seem to be the stubborn tile. What does the last push of the Victorian plan to get rid of COVID? What does it entail? Well, it's entails really. Targeted approach because it's not evenly spread across Greater Metropolitan Melbourne. So if you look at a map southeastern suburbs around the local area of Casey those an increasing number of cases there, or there's a steady number of cases they are The sole interest of active cases got fewer active cases in the northeast corridor but the northwest corridor seems to be coming down a bit and when you match Casey with Mobility Datta People armour mobile and it tends to be related to the fact that people. Don't have as much money that area. They've got poor quality jobs more casual jobs need to travel, and they're out and about in public transport. So the potential for spread in somewhere like Casey is much greater than say in the inner eastern suburbs of Melbourne where people tend to be staying at home. Not traveling quite as much. Does that mean that there is maybe a a welfare solution to this if the people they're not able to stay at home for socioeconomic reasons is there more intervention that can be done there. Well, they're already our interventions in Victoria in terms of support if you're tested positive I think that there needs to happen is already happening, which is more intensive testing in those areas and targeting you need to have I. Think a system that similar to New South Wales. May Well, be that there's the retorted but I haven't seen it. which is that if you live in New South Wales, you know exactly which Jim I mean people aren't going to gyms but the the May will be tram or train that somebody got onto or a shop that he went into and much more alerts. So that people who've been in the same area know that they are it also needs community development dense the community onside community leaders people to come forward. We actually had a question on this from David. Saying. What are some of the epidemiological reasons for the stubborn tile of the reduction in infections that is cases dropped swiftly after lockdown but then they flatten out it is these the reasons that play into this you can't really separate epidemiology or biology from the way we live pandemics are not a biological phenomenon purely, yes. You got to have a bug that evolves, but it's all about our behavior and how interact with the JEREM whether it'd be tumor virus. So. Epidemiology that exquisite junction between society and biology, and that's what you've got here. The more biological reasons here is our that almost certainly the still virus circulating circulating amongst younger people who are either to matic or don't have very many symptoms all not coming forward for testing and that asymmetric spread that that iceberg phenomenon is what might be driving part of it but it's not driving it strongly because numbers are coming down

Sitting down with the Kotlin Advocates
"We are all develop had for Katelyn. Some of us are for areas that are better well known some of us of areas that are less known some of US offer areas that say oh. Oh, you mean that Kotlin is more than just android So talking starve aside talking Kotlin Jaaz stalking everything else that is not android and so I wanted to discuss a little bit. What life is like as a developer advocate at jeppe rains as a cotton develop advocate jeppe brains, how we work, who tells us what to do what not to do well. Before, I I would say that it was mostly we would decide and then sweater you decide now for us right? I wouldn't put it like this. No I'm just kidding. Like I know you're laughing there you're muted it doesn't make sense. I can record my life and you can after add it. On the places that you want. Yeah I'm like are we gotTA have a back? Channel on slack that I keep pressing a button that says you know now laugh and then everyone loves so this is I think to the vision death like long time ago so But anyway. So No, let's let's discuss a little bit like what what color advocacy implies. So especially, nowadays that you know a lot of times when we talk about when we talk about advocacy in general. People immediately associate that with going to conferences and giving talks and. Engaging with people in the community and stuff like that. And you know right now the situation in the world is a little bit. and. So people kind of ask me sometimes, I what do you do all day because you can't really do your work can you and we're GonNa Bust this myth right that developers are more than just about going to conferences. And to bars and to. Having Beers and and the. And the podcast yes. So what do you do? What? What do each of you do on a daily basis try to out a lot with a on on twitter and kind of A feeling for how people feel about technology, it's it's pretty known that that Cutler Jay s for example, has a couple of rough edges them So I tried to kind of see who is trying to adopt the technology try to help them get started and can either be on an individual basis reaching out to people asking them for their feedback to the technology, and then bring that back to the team. But it can also be in the creation of materials than the people can just consume at their own pace. So for example, on play dot, Copter Nine, dot org, we have our section of hands onto orioles, which are kind of long form to`real, you've go through in interactive fashion and we of course, right those we keep those up to date and we always allowed the community. What kind of topics should be covered. And also keeping with the Team that actually developed technology right Shanyou well. As, we know that the Greater China? Region is huge. So for me I think it's more important to facilitates with community. So basically I Love connection with the community leaders. Mostly East our cutting user. Group. Part of. Confront you. And I tried to arrange some Webinar, to invite sound speaker to share their experience about calling. And the in order to. Make more people to learn calling I arranged. Study Group. Study Jen. that. We have on lies degen that Basically teach people how. Write calling coat. And we also have their coating practice. that. Encourage. People to use calling in different way. For example, we use calling in beckon you can have a new can learn how to write calling. Using Kato War or even in Spring boot. You can use calling in enjoy can use calling in data signs. Et Cetera so we provide. The possibility to poke to calling is everything. So that's why we do every for every day.

"Is by and large a really good police force for folks that are committed to the work and committed to the work of community policing and building meaningful relationships within our community. What we have to be able to do is hold people accountable when they are not contributing significantly when their when their behavior is inconsistent with that that's true for frontline workers that required discipline or something like that. It's a drain on the ninety nine percents or whatever percent of police officers that are trying their best to do a good job to see one of their colleagues get away with stuff over and over like, we need to be able to speak truthfully about you know, and hold police officers accountable who are not. Who are not acting in the best interest consistently with with with the city. That's true as well. For for our chief the chief really needs to have. I think we need a police chief to to be thinking first and foremost about the role that they play as a community leader and the importance of building trust and bridging relationship and ensuring that young that that everyone who lives here feels like just as you need the mayor to speak for you, you need the police chief to to be able to speak for you. And I think sometimes we get caught in this sort of divide where folks interpret the police chief is speaking for the police department, and I think that's where that that bridge and that trust becomes problematic. When I talk to young people in our community. I just had a sit down with a dozen young black men teenagers in. Who said, you know, we we don't wanna be.
"community leader" Discussed on Sports? with Katie Nolan
"Like, look, this is the way things are, and so I'm just not going to stream with women. It feels to me like it solves the quote, unquote problem for ninja, but does nothing. To fix the problem in the gaming community, which is a very again on the outside of it, but they are very toxic elements to the video gaming community. And I think as a community leader, like ninja, he's uniquely positioned to fix some of that. I'm not saying it's his job to fix all that. 'cause it's a pretty tough task, but I don't think that the solution is to be like, well, people are immature and make up fake rumors when I stream with women. So no more streaming with women. I think my overall take is like ninja, has the ability to address and fix the problem and he's young. I'm pretty sure, and it's a huge ask to be like, hey, instead of adjusting the way you work to the toxic community, change the community and make it not toxic that's tough ask, but I feel like it would be. It would be the better move this. It's like when people when me to started happening and I don't remember where read it and it's really not important. But I remember a guy company being like, well, you know the only way it seems you'll be able to avoid this is by never hiring women. So, and it's like, that's not. That's that is a solution in the most basic sense of the word, right? It's not a solution that like the only way men can stop sexually harassing women is to remove them from the like, it's not. It fixes the problem quote, unquote, but it doesn't address the problem, which is, why are you always doing that feels like furniture. This is a band-aid of like, I don't with women. This won't happen instead of being like, why does this happen? Every time I stream with a woman? Why is everyone always harassing me and being this way in? Why am I comfortable with allowing this community that I make all my money off of to continue being that way instead of wanting to change it or affect. it in some way or tell it to, you know, screw skew. I'm gonna do what I want. I think people are quick to. We've had this conversation before about how labels are not a good way to start a conversation about change. So I think people are going to jump to ninja is sexist. And I wanna say, from what I know, his wife is his manager. I believe like he's not. This is a very sexist solution to a problem, but I, I don't think he's doing it from like a women are bad games like women, let's keep him out of the community. I just think he's not thinking through the gravity of the decision that he's making. You could even make that decision and shut up about it. You could even make that decision and like every now and then stream with like one woman. And then when that happens, the cool not doing that again for this many, but there's a weird thing to coming out and being like, I, the most prominent video game streamer whose name transcends video games like people outside of the video game community. Do. No, who ninja is I am never going to stream with a woman that story, especially when you're complaint is celebrity and how people write stories about things. You say it seems like he doesn't have a grasp on just how big that platform is. Especially when he says things like I'm not streaming with women because now every streamer you and I have never heard of never will hear of. But who are moderately big in that community like ninja doesn't stream with women's onstream women either. And then this could become a thing where it's just acceptable because well, the other option is to deal with people constantly saying sleeping with this other girl, and I'm not it's it's so I don't think we understand the community will enough to speak on it fully. But you know, from, you know, we were asked the question and that's my read on the situation..
