Global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in over 120 countries. I'm Michael Barr. This is Bloomberg. Now, a look at the front pages. What's making news around the world? Your daily roundup of today's headlines from major publications. In 6 23 on Wall Street, I'm Nathan Hager. Let's bring in Bloomberg Steve rappaport for a look at today's morning paper, starting with The Washington Post, Steve, and an inside story on how that Fox News dominion voting system settlement really did come together at literally the last minute. That's right, Nathan. Imagine this. It's a Sunday morning. You're cruising down the Danube river la la la la la suddenly your phone lights up with a message saying, hey, if you're not too busy, do you think you can come help us resolve a case with $1.6 billion at stake? Well, that's what happened with Jerry Roscoe, a longtime veteran mediator, both sides sent an urgent email when it became clear that talks for a settlement were at a standstill. So according to The Washington Post, he comes in and what he did first was talk separately to both parties to see where the red line is for both. Then according to The Washington Post, on Monday morning, he got both sides together on a conference call, one hour later, the judge pauses the trial or jury selection rather until the next day. And then before you know it right before opening statements, a settlement gets reached once again, proving the best lawyers keep their clients out of court. Was he really on the blue Danube? Yeah, that's The Washington Post says he was rafting on vacation and then suddenly he found himself scrolling through thousands of documents on his phone. Unreal. Let's go from the Danube river to Lake Buena Vista and the fight between Florida governor Ron DeSantis and Disney, the focus of The New York Times this morning. Yes, don't mess with Mickey seems to be the message from fellow Republicans to governor Ron DeSantis. They're saying might have overplayed his hand in the ongoing crusade of his against Disney. President Trump former president Trump on truth social wrote to sank this is being absolutely destroyed by Disney, and Chris Christie, according to The New York Times at an event expressed confusion as to why would he do this? Christy said something to the effect of, we don't punish people for who express public disagreement. I thought that only liberals do that. And according to The New York Times strategists are also confused, they're wondering why desantis would take on a company rich in resources and rich in popularity. More a Republican backlash apparently against Florida's governor. Finally, Steve, a story in The Wall Street Journal kind of tied to tax day because it's about the IRS investigation into President Biden's son hunter. Well, Hunter Biden has been a little bit of a headache for the Biden White House. There has been stories about business dealings, also the controversial laptop issue. And now The Wall Street Journal has an exclusive and IRS supervisor has told members of Congress that he has information suggesting the administration is improperly handling the criminal investigation this agent is also seeking whistleblower protection according to The Wall Street Journal. This person's lawyer sent a letter to lawmakers in it saying that this person has information that would contradict testimony from a senior political appointee and the supervisor also allegedly has info about a failure to mitigate clear conflicts of interest in the case. Hunter Biden is facing criminal investigation related to taxes and whether he made a false statement with regard to purchasing a gun. Back in December 2020, he set his tax matters were under investigation, but that he was confident a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that he handled those affairs legally and appropriately. One more thing that The Wall Street Journal points out, this investigation has been led by a U.S. attorney who was appointed by then president Trump.

"Well, I mean, what a privilege to go back to the same place where you served as a young missionary and to go back with your wife. See, there are not a lot of callings in the church that you can do with your wife. And so being a mission present where they come now mission leaders, leaders in life, that's a great privilege. I couldn't think of anything I'd rather do. Yeah. It was something that just came out of the blue. Yeah, you don't apply for those things and you get a phone call and they say, can you come in for a visit? Yeah. Before you know it, you're headed to Hong Kong. Yeah. And before that, did you have much leadership experience or in the church? I guess, yes, I've been a bishop and in a state presidency and high council and things like that. Yeah, nice. Nice. And what did you do for your career? I have a real estate background. I've been involved in real estate development with the firm and then I've had my own company that does management and consulting and sales and things like that. Nice. And were you working at the time of your call as a mission present? I was. Took a few years off to a few years off. Put everything on the shelf. Now this isn't your first book. What are some of the other books that you've written? First book was about cruising. We love to cruise, so I wrote a book about that. Then went about golf. I love the golf. Not very good at it, but I like to tell stories about doll. And then the third one is about Hong Kong. Nice. And then this one is the fourth one. As the Hong Kong connected to the church at all, or is it just for anybody who wants to go to Hong Kong? For anybody who wants to go to Hong Kong, it's not a true travel book. It's more of an experience book. If you were to go to Hong Kong, what should you do? And chapter about the minutes medicine in Hong Kong and about beliefs of Buddhists and people like that. And so there is a chapter that's very religious about religion in Hong Kong, but the book is broader than just religion. So let's just hit those three books real quick. What's the best Hong Kong tip if someone's going there tomorrow? What do they got to make sure they do? Well, don't try to do it in one day. I suggest two or three days and then there's the book suggests that itinerary of what you might want to do. Nice. What's the favorite food there? Something that you got to try. The cuisine number 33. Number 33. What does that mean? There's a chapter about that. Somebody was asked, well, what's your favorite Chinese food? And whatever number you used was I really, really like number 33. I like sweet and sour pork. And I love Peking duck. Wow. That's a good dinner. Not a big fan of chicken feet. But they're popular. Really? Yeah. I've heard that. I can't imagine. What about golfing? What's your best golf tip that you share in the book? Again, I'm not trying to tell anybody how to golf because I don't do that, but it's a book about golf about the experience and about the whole idea of playing golf talks about golf balls and how interesting they are. You know, for instance, that at any given time. This has been studied scientifically. At any given time there is a golf ball in the air, somewhere in the world. Oh my goodness. That's probably true, but I remember that. Yeah. Interesting. Yeah. So right now, there's a golf. There's a golf ball in there right now. Nice. There's probably somebody that's not hitting it very straight. That's right. It's probably going to end up in the rough side. There's always a golf ball in the world in the Lake. That I know from personal experience. What about cruising? I went on my first cruise this past January going again this coming January at any cruise tip that maybe I totally missed. Charting remember that cruises are like automobiles. So there are fancy cruises and there are less fancy cruises. There are chevrolets in there are Porsches. So part of the idea is to pick the right itinerary, but also to get the ship that you'd be comfortable on. Some are very young oriented ships that party a lot. Others as they call them. Yeah. Others are for people like my wife and I where we just enjoy seeing things and going to ports and having nice food. Yeah. Yeah, ours was I think the demographic was a little bit older. So it wasn't there wasn't like water slides or all these things. But it was really nice the food was great. Beautiful views and man, the spa was great. The gym was awesome. But yeah, I've heard that they vary quite a bit. And you'll find it's a real bargain. If you were to try to do the same things, without being on a cruise ship, go to the same ports and do the same type of things. You'd spend more than you really cruise. So cruising is considered to be a pretty good bargain. Especially now, for two years, cruise ships couldn't sail. They couldn't pay people to walk on those. So now they're open again and there are some deals out there. Yeah. So when's your next cruise? We just got back from but you did, where'd you go? We cruised on the Danube river in Europe. Oh, wow. We had a fun thing. We went to the ober armor gal passion plate. Held every ten years in the little village of over armor gal over armor gal in Germany. And as part of that, we spent the first week traveling through Germany and Austria and we went on a riverboat on the Danube for the last part of it. Wow. Do you know about oberammergau? I can't even say I've heard of that before. I'm getting you off course, but let me tell you about it. Four or 500 years ago, there's this little village in Germany, and there's the black plague going through Europe and it's wiping out villages and just hundreds of thousands of people are dying. So these dear people in the city in the little village of ober army gal, prayed to heavenly father, they said, if you will save our village, we will present a play about Jesus Christ. And do that faithfully. Oh, wow. They were spared. So then they began putting on a passion play. At first they did it each year, then it became every ten years. And so ever since the start into its like 400 years now, they have put on this passion plate in this little village, so it was supposed to be in 2020, but COVID postponed in the two 22, 2000 22. So to the year 2000 or two ten, 2020, it'll be in 2030. Oh, wow. You're in the rules. There are about 2000 people involved in this passion play. It goes all day long, and they put it on successive days. But it's a long thing and it's in German. But in order to be in the play in the Caster to do the stage things or be the singers or the orchestra, you have to build born in over opera gal, low village. Wow. Or you need to live there for 20 years. So it was very particular. So it's kind of cool. You see hundreds of people on the stage acting out the triumphant entry into Jerusalem by Christ, all of them are over all people. Well, how? It's really good. So is it hard to get into? As far as buy a ticket and go, tough ticket. You have to, is there a waiting list or a lottery or we first applied to go to it in October of 2017? Oh wow. So that was three years before the play. We arranged to get tickets. Wow. So yeah. It's a tough ticket. Interesting. Little factoid. You should go. I do. It's on my bucket list now. Over armor is great little city. Just really neat. Cool. Awesome. So this is your first, the sacrament historic view. This is your first church related book. It is. And was that intimidating in all or make it more exciting? It is. And I should say, I'm not trying to create any kind of new doctrine in this. So I hope

"Quality of life is getting way too high, and we've got far too many jobs. You don't hear complaints like that. But you can certainly have too much sprawl and too much resource extraction. So because of the size of the opportunity here to restore and reuse and repurpose and reconnect our natural and builds and socioeconomic environments. There are people getting into it from all levels. You've got giant corporations that are doing multi-billion dollar ecological restoration projects like the Everglades restoration or the Danube river restoration in Europe. You've got individual entrepreneurs, a friend of mine, Keith Bowers, when he graduated from landscape architecture school, about 20 years ago, he saw the opportunity in stream restoration, a lot of communities were daylighting streams that had been buried and or were taking the streams out of their concrete straitjackets and returning them to their natural form. So he decided to specialize in that and he's doing about $20 million a year now in his private practice, which is called biohabitats. Now, I think that's absolutely amazing. And I can only see that as a reward, and it makes, it makes no sense unless you know, I think one of the things that stops all of this happening is that maybe a few people want to make rich. At the expense of the rest of the world. Yeah, although there's so much of it to be done at the small level, it doesn't threaten the major corporations or the billionaires. That there's really no excuse for not doing all of these community level projects. Yeah, changing the way your federal government funds things. And the policies and all that can be a slower change because that can threaten some of the really big money interests. But there's really nothing stopping people from revitalizing their communities. I mean, look what happened up in Todd Morgan up in, I think it's Yorkshire. Where they started that, I think it was called edible Todd Morgan. And Todd Morton rather and they started repurposing all of the vacant or underused public property around the city and to edible gardens. And totally revitalized the city and greatly increased the quality of life and people's health. There's also, I don't know what country is, but there was a couple that they went to all these producers of orange juice and got all the orange peels and stuff that they didn't need. And they put it into a dead kind of forest, isn't it? And over like 20 years or something, it was all kind of mashed out. I kind of revitalized everything and there is this beautiful, a couple of the family acres, but it's beautiful space animal wildlife has come back and it's just absolutely beautiful. Why do when people try to do this read vitalization? Why does it fail or seem to fail? Yeah, that's the unfortunate thing is that although many projects are successful, most cities and regions and entire nations really do fail most of the time. I'd say the failure rate if you include both the complete failures and the partial failures in terms of not achieving their major goals.

That's how they could cover up such awful behavior so when you started questioning it did you do it through picketing did you do it through talking to others in the church did you do it through writings.

I did mention that. I like running but for whatever reason i totally forgot about this while lynn chatting but once upon a time in switzerland on new year's eve my brother and i did a midnight trail race to ring in the new year. And they do this every year. It's called the new year's marathon in german of course but it's called the new year's marathon. It's outside of zurich Because there's also a marathon. We did the ten k. I am pretty sure there's a half marathon option as well but it was just so so cool. The race started in a gym because it's middle of winter. It's actually cold so you start inside in the gym like gymnasium outside of zurich and we ran a big ten k. Loop over the river and through the woods and neighborhoods along a trail and because it was ringing in the new year we started right at midnight. We did a countdown in everything. And then everybody set off with headlamps and people like in the neighborhoods. Not just people watching the race but the all the neighborhoods were alive. There were ringing bells and fireworks going off the entire time. And because if you. I've ever run in the dark but because depth perception is totally off. We ran so fast actually. Pr my ten k. Time that night during that race which is just wild. And that means iran my personal best ten k At that time it was just so invigorating to be running with so many happy people in the dark that was ringing in the year. Two thousand sixteen And it's just hilarious. We just had such a fun time so all that is to back to starting with your interest. Think about what you like to do. What lights you up and consider where you can find that thing overseas even if it only takes an hour like a ten k. Something different start with a simple web search. You never know where it might take you okay. That's a wrap today. Thank you so much for tuning in. I hope you enjoyed this. Little daydream trip to europe's country.

I have a good a good friend in colorado has done. She's done a couple bike trips. I think she's done went through the dolemite's and i think she's done one Maybe kind of. I wanna see. Maybe in spain kind of probably near the pyrenees. She's used on some ship. Pretty hardcore dockland. I i don't have a bike all croatia with this october. Come so. I'm going to be in greece in october. Actually what are your. You'll be ready to up. Come with us come on. I'm not gonna stop. You need to try this it seriously. The best like youth think hiking is great. It is it really is but guess what even better. I think you're gonna tell me cycling. I i see so you know when i'm out and about you know traveling it's like so many people out biking and and you know to me. It's like you can do some of that kind of hard core stuff like you know. Like i'm thinking about my friend jenny. She's just she's hardcore. She's you know up in the mountains and doing all that kind of stuff. Then you go somewhere like you know somewhere. Flat like the netherlands or belgium. And you can just be gonna take a nice easy. You know cycle through tulips or something like that. That's out there for you. Also two words e bike electric. If you are of the energy that we'll take guess what they have a bike for you. And i saw those who went in Two years ago. When i was the last time i was in the dolemite's and i was up in albi de sushi mixer. Some roads up there and there's trails of either wide gravel or or little kind of using tracks. There were so many people on those e bikes. But i'd always be like judy. You know this allows me to get up here. I know no shave. Wanna you wanna mind. The trail. etiquette and e bikes aren't allowed everywhere. So you but i mean on the trips i'm talking about you know There they definitely are just. I didn't actually haven't used one yet. I have used one but not for one of these trips. But i have had people join me. Who wouldn't have done otherwise. Had they not had an e bike and that was really cool. Because you know. I was able to do some of these things with friends. They wouldn't have been there and so that is a nice thing about those about those e bikes is it does enable people like i know darn well that you know. I saw people on them. And i'm like yeah. There's probably no way that these people would be able to actually really kind of cycle up some of the hills because there's some there's some d. steve hills sleep pills. Yeah i rode through switzerland as we mentioned and The this hills in switzerland. Yeah but now. Did you use an e bike for that. Did you did you. I didn't know once. I did the first one in portugal. Knowing that i could do it i was like. Oh i'm also that was. I had been in really good shape that year i had just been. I mean that was like at the end of my three years of just being nomadic. Which basically all i did was run and hike and i mean for three years. I was just in super good shape and so because there's there wasn't a lot for me to do but explore right. I mean i was constantly traveling and so is just keeping that up and yeah and so. That's why i once i did the first trip and knew i could do it like okay. I can do this. I'm it's my own personal challenge to not use any bike. But that's i actually have one set aside for myself for this october in croatia. Because i'm doing two trips back to back. And i'm a little all of the mileage and also being you know the the host and wanting to be able to chat with people it's a different experience on an e bike. It's a beautiful thing really. Yeah it is. i'll try one. Maybe i yeah. I'm going to be in the dolemite's actually in september. So maybe i'll try when there. Oh my gosh chelny and say were probably that. Oh so so. Yeah so obviously for cycling. Doozy's europe's choice to go. You know and i. So i did. Let's let's see. I just want to mention one more of those. That ideas we haven't mentioned yet was in austria. I actually rode my bike by myself. All the way across austria danube. Yeah because the danube river it will be a river like it's flat you know and so that entire trail was pretty flat and i would recommend that particular route to anybody who wants to sample it because it's gorgeous and it's easy it really is and you can't get lost because you're following a river the hallway you know like either take a turn and end up in a town instead of on the bike lane where you're supposed to whatever you figure it out pretty quickly but You can go. I started at the edge of germany. Like in a town just on the just inside of germany and on the first day i crossed into austria and ended in vienna so i went all the way across on my own. It was a brilliantly beautiful experience solo experience. You know. I mean quote oncoming. It was super safe. I had a wonderful time. And i saw a lot of families out there and so that suitable for absolutely any who wants to have a taste of just a different style bureau and how. How long was that also week. Oh two hundred and twenty miles which one you were asking. They're all probably a little bit of both. Yeah yeah because i mean for some people maybe.

"Come yeah plenty as a similar one. Plenty of tax diminish viciously plenty also greatly benefited under domitian got special privileges from domitian plutarch. Also i and so what you see with. Domitian is a lot of the people we read that. Have the worst attacks on domitian are actually people who if we're being honest overcompensating for the fact that they built their careers around service to and we probably you know and then also the most and these are the best example and these are also. We just talked about tacitus. Swi- tony ass- plutarch. These are the most important roman historians of in roman history. Right so this talk. It's not just tasks this who's got the reality distortion field served shining things. So why isn't trajan all that great. Why isn't he all that. So i think what we see with. Trajan is a person who comes in and realizes rum has the capacity to do a lot more than it was doing underage mission and trade and uses that capacity to over extend the empire and so there are a few moves at the train. Makes that work out. He absorbs the kingdom the nabataean kingdom of rabia centered on petra and both strut in. What's now jordan and syria. He secures that without without basically firing a shot in. He uses this as a way to build a road network. So he can invade iraq This is also going on. At the same time that he invades romania. Now domitian had worked out a deal with the dacians. The people who are in control of what's now most of modern romania where he basically bridges and had rite of passage across station. So he could use this as part of his frontier system to keep germans on the other side of the under control with trajan did invade station in conquers dacia But the conquest of dacia and the invasion of iraq workout. About as well as you'd imagine there is a very good frontier between roman territory dacian territory. It's the danube river and very hard to cross very defensible. There isn't really a good frontier once you get on the other side and so you have territory. That's going to be very difficult to defend a lot. More difficult to defend than the danube river would have been in iraq The invasion of iraq just leads to the people who controlled iraq moving into the mountains of what's now iran and then launching guerrilla warfare tax into iraq Pretty aggressively and iraq is not something that the romans can maintain until with trade train. What we see is a person who's headlines are really glowing and spectacular. There are a lot of very important roman victories that he wins that are really impressed and the empire reaches its greatest extent under traded to the point where he is evil to even walk in the persian gulf as a roman emperor who controls the mouth of the person the mouth of the great rivers investments batavia the persian gulf but it's unsustainable and so when his successor takes over he has to withdraw from iraq. He can't maintain it. The war is not going well and he realizes that this was a mistake. A he wants to withdraw from dacia. He just can't because there have been too many romans who've coming as settlers to populate that area and so he has to maintain dacia but he doesn't want got either because he realizes it's a strategic disadvantage for row and ultimately the first territory that becomes a province that rome withdraws from his dacian because it's simply not defensible. this is hadrian. We're talking about who as people might realize likes walls and them and he hit some. He doesn't want he's marking the line. Beyond which rome won't go has yet to go any further than that So the golden age wasn't all that great And the point being here is that this is a period of decline of let's say crankiness in the structure and yet at this point..

"There is a kind of guess. You would say like a fifteen year itch. There's a lot of empress who don't make it for very long because they're not capable or they don't ever secure power then there's a group that make it but only naked into like their fifteen year or thereabouts. And then there's another burst of kind of assassinations right around that period where people basically got tired of the person and they get antsy and they realize maybe they're never going to the emperor this first sticks around and so there's a whole nother batch of people who get killed right around the fifteen year period and then once you get past that window. You're there for people are they're just willing to be stuck with you. Have a few emperors who go thirty four sierras but domitian dies in the beginning of the sixteenth year. That he's in power. It's three days after he celebrates the beginning of that year. And when you look at his career what you see this is a figure who was basically playing the long game who was young when you took power and was rebuilding rome in a way that was sustainable but making decisions that in the short term didn't look particularly good but had long term benefits and this greatly frustrated certain people some examples of kea giving example. Because my my vague center domitian was like proto secret police creep elements of that too. I mean he also as you get to your fiftieth year. You're sick of some of the behavior people. But i mean as frontier policy in its financial policy to go examples of this so his frontier policy along the northern frontier was not to conquer more territory beyond the ryan danube river instead what he did was he. He diminished the power anybody along those frontiers to threaten rome and then he built a sequence of alliances and got permission to traverse other people's territory so that he could defend rome against these people if these people got rowdy but he had no interest in taking that territory because he didn't feel it was in the best interest of rome to expand so instead what he did was he created a frontier system to opponents in the senate into later historians writing about this. This is seen as cowardice. Rome had the power to conquer these people. Why didn't they do it But we're domitian understood. Was it was better to build a system that had all in these parts that checked one another than to take responsibility for managing all this craziness on the other side of the frontier pay for the infrastructure would take the conquer it in his financial policy. Something similar where you had from the reign of nero on a curative of gradual depreciation of the silver currency and decreasing the size of the gold currency..

"Discoveries as we celebrate curiosity and explore interesting facts about history science and more in five minutes or less. Hi i'm luke and welcomed to the quiz against bob guest. Today is the last friday in july. So far this month we have explored rivers in south america africa asia and north america. Today we wrap up our river. Explorations with a european river the danube. The danube is europe's second longest river measuring one thousand. Seven hundred seventy seven miles long. It flows through ten countries starting in the black forest mountains of germany. The river travels through austria slovakia hungary croatia syria bulgaria romania moldova and ukraine before emptying into the black sea. The danube has over three hundred tributaries with thirty of them being navigable. Which means that you can take a boat on them. Many important european cities line its banks including budapest hungary and vienna austria. The danube was critical. In settlement of south eastern and central europe. Castles and fortresses can still be seen along the river. It was the way that people traded their goods and services with nearby countries it continues to be important to the economies of the countries it flows through freight is still transported up and down the river. Additionally hydro electric power is generated by the danube most notably near yugoslavia and romania at the iron gate power station after world war. Two canals were constructed to aid in the navigation of the river including the danube black sea canal. This canal connects romania to the black sea making trade more efficient many industries and residential areas rely on the river for water supply and irrigation like many other rivers. Pollution is an issue. This endangers wildlife in makes the water unusable for people. Greek sailors traveled up the danube in the seventh century. Bc e. later. The danube was the northern boundary of the roman empire with roman soldiers patrolling it and establishing strongholds on its bank. The river continued to play a vital role in history as more castles and fortresses were built during the middle ages as the ottoman empire spread. The turks used these fortresses for defense as time passed trade became the reason for the river. Traffic the treaty of paris signed in eighteen. Fifty six made the river an international waterway with the formation of the international danube commission in nineteen power to control. The river was settled. The commission had its own flag levy taxes and insured that navigational equipment was kept up world war two slowed river traffic with fighting and it did not resume until nineteen forty eight. Many different types of plants and animals live in and around the danube over one hundred species of fish swim in its waters sturgeons which can reach lengths of six meters and the danube salmon were once plentiful but are now endangered because of pollution and overfishing in addition to sturgeon and salmon many carpet catfish can be found in the danube birds. Like the danube kingfisher are plentiful in the forests along the riverbank as their name indicates these brightly colored birds fish the danube for their dinner. By swooping down over the water to catch their prey pygmy. Cormorants are another bird that makes its home near the danube. It likes to build its nest in the reads and sticks that surround the river. The danube clouded yellow butterfly can be found along the banks in may july and august. Like the fish. This species is in danger of becoming extinct european pond. Turtles make their nests along the danube. These freshwater turtles can live over one hundred years. They also are able to travel far away from the water. Some of these turtles have been seen over three hundred miles from the banks today. Many places along the danube are popular with tourists. The home of anne frank is among the many places museums and memorials. That people want to see river cruises make their way along the river allowing those on board to see the magnificent architecture from long ago the river has also played a part in several books movies and songs a lullaby called on the beautiful. Blue danube is one of the most famous. I hope you enjoyed exploring some of earth's most significant rivers with me this month. Thanks for tuning into the inquisitors.

"I've been listening to you guys talking. Quite a bit about new hampshire secession past week or salton. And i am absolutely started. Nobody has brought up the fact that there is a television show about a town in new hampshire that declares independence from the united states. What is this. It's called the republic of sarah. It's network and you can actually stream free on the cw. Is it any good. it's not bad. I think the the writers decided to sexy it up a little bit so they added in a bunch of stuff. That's not really related to this deception story but is it. Is it fiction or is this a historical kind of drama restriction. It set in the present day. Okay now and there's a corporation gets in bed with the state government and uses eminent domain to take over a bunch of land in this town mining operation and the residents of town make a discovery that apparently the land that they said on was never formally claimed i the us or candidate and they've just been acting like a us territory so they declare their independence. Cool a little bit like liver land where you know you've got over it. I think it was the danube river. If i recall correctly Between serbia and croatia. There's a little spot which is sort of dispute disputed territory definitely. This is a possibility right for up here. And in fact. We've had dave ridley calling in over the last week. Or so talking about secession. And his one concern was that it costs the state money to have a hearing so every time. There's a there's a bill that's put forward. And there's like eight hundred two thousand bills every year in new hampshire. It costs some amount of money for whatever. Bureaucrats need to be in the state house and the power and the you know the air conditioning or the heating or whatever to to have this hearing and somewhere ridley at heard that it costs around two thousand taxpayer dollars to hold just one of these.

"Often right. So what we're seeing is a lot of these one percent chance in a given year floods are becoming much more frequent those same provinces in china that are experiencing flooding right now had last year. What was considered historic flooding. And they've topped it. Studies have suggested that a two degree increase global average temperature would raise the risks of extreme flooding events from one in one hundred to one in twenty five in that part of the world and in germany. You have these insurance reports that have estimated that severe flooding on the danube river is gonna happen twice as often as climate change progresses meanwhile in nigeria there meteorological agency has been analyzing thirteen flood-affected regions over the course of like forty years and they found this rising trend in yearly rainfall. And they say that that is likely to be a significant factor responsible for floods there. So you're basically just seeing this pattern. Where climate change is increasing these torrential downpours. Which are increasing the flood. Risk in places that were already flood-prone. Let's move onto your next story. Which is also about climate change and specifically the plight of the monarch butterfly. We've heard a lot about the plight of the monarch over the years. What's different about this well. Some researchers did a study where they used citizen science surveys and weather data to try to tease apart. How much of that. Butterflies decline has been due to climate change as compared to all these other things that are impacting it including herbicides destroying its favorite food milkweed and migratory problems the models at the researchers built using that data showed that between two thousand four and two thousand eighteen the amount that rainfall and temperature deviated from long term. Averages was seven times more important than other factors in explaining the decline in monarch numbers. So basically they're kind of teasing this apart and finding that over the last twenty years it's.

"British author role doll rose to fame with books that became iconic works of literature and continue to be read by children. All over the world. Charlie and the chocolate factory james and the giant peach and the witches are all beloved for their colorful storytelling and memorable characters however shadow has followed these tales and their author since their publication doll was often described as being racist anti-semitic eh misogynistic in both his personal life and in his stories and how we approach problematic literature especially literature written for children is as complicated as the man who wrote them. Just ask those who were responsible for. Bringing his words to the world they often dealt with him across the ocean. And even that wasn't enough. Sometimes doll had grown up embodying this nickname of the apple which he'd earned due to his mother's adoration for him compared to her other children. He attended boarding school from a young age and dabbled in writing but his imagination proved far more developed than his literary skills. At the time. Still he enjoyed coming up with stories and conjuring new ones based on his experiences at school. Doll went on to enlist in world war. Two with the royal air force after sustaining an injury during a crash he healed up flew several more missions and eventually went home to start his new life as a civilian. He married american actress. Patricia neal in nineteen fifty three and together. The couple had five children. It was during her fifth pregnancy. Though when neil suffered three cerebral aneurysms. Her husband took over caring for the family but he also treated her horribly as she recovered he implemented a cruel recovery regimen to get her back into acting when she wanted something but couldn't remember what it was called. He would refuse to give it to her until she used. Its correct name and this went on for ten months. Several years later doll began an affair with another woman you see. There was a reason why his wife referred to him as roald of the rotten doll was also notoriously arrogant about his work and the money he made with it at a party thrown by playwright. Tom stoppard doll. Met kingsley. amos novelist who wrote adult fiction doll told him that if he really wanted to earn money with his work he should start writing children's books instead. The two men had an awkward conversation before doll left the party in his private helicopter amos despondently wrote about the evening later saying i watched the television news that night but there was no report of a famous children's author being killed in a helicopter crash doll just had the kind of effect on people but it was how he treated the ones who published his novels that nearly ended his career publishing house alfred. A knopf had been putting out dolls books for many years. In nineteen eighty the editor in chief robert gottlieb received a frantic letter from the author claiming he was running out of his favourite pencil. The american-made dixon ticonderoga. He demanded someone competent and ravishing. Those were his words not mine. Sent him a box of six. Dozen tonto. rojas. Gottlieb brushed the letter off as a joke and tossed it aside only to find out a few months later. That doll had most certainly not been playing around. So gottlieb's assistant sent him some pencils of different variety instead. But this only incensed the author further. He wrote back demanding. Not only the pencils. He had asked for but several other accommodations as well. And if gottlieb didn't acquiesce doll was prepared to go to another publisher. The editor had had enough. He composed a letter of his own in which he called doll uncivil and accused him of bullying. He would no longer tolerate tanks rooms or rudeness. Either and gottlieb ended his letter by providing doll with an ultimatum of his own. Unless you start acting civilly to us. There is no possibility of our agreeing to continue to publish you. The day the letter went out. Everyone in the office got up on their desks and cheered. Rawal dull had become the villain of his own story and he just been defeated.

It can be hard to tell which way is up throw in the unpredictable nature of an opposing force. And it's only a matter of time before a wrong decision. Turns deadly wars are new nor are their effects on those who fight them trauma disorientation and ptsd have affected soldiers for hundreds even thousands of years back in seventeen eighty eight. For example soldiers faced one of the most heated battles of the ostrow turkish war thousands were left dead or injured all because they had no idea what was going on. It was the night of september twenty first and roughly one hundred thousand austrian forces had entered the romanian town of karen. Seb's they've been fighting the ottomans namely the turks and had come to the town in order to maintain control of the nearby danube river. Turkish forces were close by and the austrians wanted to be prepared to make sure their position was secure. A small cavalry contingent scouted the area for turks. Everyone else stayed back at the camps to get ready for the next day's fight. The cavalry crossed the nearby. Tim's river hoping to surprise the enemy. What they actually found was a different kind of trouble. They came upon a group of romani travellers. Who invited the men to stop and take a load off. They offered them schnapps of which the austrians were only too happy to partake. After all they had a long day made longer by their night of patrolling. The cavalryman drank for much of that night's knowing tomorrow would be a day of bloodshed for both eventually though. They were confronted by a unit of austrian infantry soldiers who gazed upon the scene in both disbelief and jealousy. They demand the cavalry. Share the snaps with them but the men were drunk too drunk to make good decisions so late in the night and they told them no and rather than share their drinks. They barricaded themselves using empty barrels. A fight broke out. Fists were thrown and then someone somewhere fired. A single shot across the river. The austrians back at the camps. Believe the shot to have come from the ottoman army bay shouted a warning of turks turks which caused the partying soldiers across the river to panic to them. It seemed like the ottoman army had reached their camps so they ran back to help but the austrian forces had one major problem. Not all of them were actually from austria. Their army was made up of austrians. Germans czechs croat's serbs and soldiers from other european countries. Nobody spoke the same language so communication was difficult. This led to quite a few misunderstandings including a big one on this night is he. As the cavalryman an infantryman retreated back to their camps across the river. Awaiting officer shouted halt in german media. Stop some of the approaching men who did not know german though thought he was yelling. Allah pronouncement like that could only have come from a turkish soldier. The enemy after that an austrian commander ordered artillery fire on the incoming soldiers. Believing them to be the ottomans scared and unsure of what was going on the drunken cavalryman and infantrymen began firing back also under the impression that they were shooting at the ottomans. In other words each side that the other was the enemy and a firefight ensued in what came to be known as the battle of karen says they waged war all night and by the time. The battle was over the following morning. As many as ten thousand austrian soldiers had either been killed or wounded a few days later. The ottoman army actually showed up and without a proper austrian army to oppose them. The easily took over karen sevice. Some historians believe the battle to have never taken place since it wasn't officially recorded until forty years after the fact however it's also possible that no one wrote it down for a reason that just about all of us can sympathize with sheer embarrassment.

France enters a period of enormous upheaval. Tired of being treated like indentured servants. French workers wanted out with the wasteful monarchy and in with democracy so they take to the streets demanding change as they do. They chant and sing like the french national anthem gets written. In this period its lyrics. Call the working class of france to rise up and water their fields with the blood of nobility joie wasi the revolutionaries also kidnapped nobles and officials holding them captive and of course they trade with a little device called the guillotine which is made people headless about one hundred fifty years later. Another prediction seems to come true from the depths of the west of europe. A young child will be born. Poor people he who by his tongue will seduce a great troop his fame will increase towards the realm of the east sound eerily familiar in the early nineteen hundreds. There is an austrian born german who rose to power in western europe. His father died young so he grew up pretty poor and received little formal education in the nineteen twenties. This young leader starts giving these impassioned racist speeches which are unfortunately effective seductive even so seductive that people start to wonder whether there's a supernatural quality to the words rolling off his tongue because they appear to hypnotize people. Obviously talking about hitler. And he amasses a great deal of nazi troops many of which he sent to the east famously invading poland and later attacking the soviet union after world. War two breaks out nostradamus. Books really start flying off the shelves. A bookstore in paris sells three thousand copies in a single month. Everyone's looking for clues to what might happen next and one paw train has them terrified beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers the greater part of the battlefield will be against histor- into a cage of iron. Will the great one be drawn when the child of germany observes nothing at this point. The german army is heading east in tanks. Which are basically cages of to get there. They need to cross mountains. Valleys and rivers including the danube river which flows from southern germany into eastern europe. And guess what the old name of. The danube river is history and a child of germany who observes nothing sounds like a pretty good description of a ruthless ignorant dictator. That's not the last prophecy of the war as you probably know at the end of world war two. The united states drops atomic bombs onto japanese cities. Here are shema and knock sake. Nearly four hundred years earlier nostra donald wrote near the gates and with into cities there will be scourges the like of which was never seen famine within plague. People put out by steel crying to the great immortal god for relief and the eerie coincidences. Just keep rolling two decades later people start claiming that a train about a great man falling predicted john. And bobby kennedy's assassination in nineteen sixty three and sixty eight almost thirty years after that. People are wondering whether nostradamus predicted. Princess diana's debt in a quad train. That can be translated to the last son of the man with the prophets name will bring diana to her day of rest. The wonder far in frenzied grief delivering a great people from subjugation. Diana was killed in a car crash on a sunday. The day of rest alongside a man named dodie fayette dodi's father is named muhammad. Which is the name of arguably the most famous prophet of all time. Four years later after the september eleventh. Terrorist attacks nostradamus. His book starts flying off the shelves again. One barnes and noble brooklyn has twenty customers asking for the prophecies in a single day. Why are people freaking out all because of this poem at forty five degrees. The sky will burn. Fire approaches the great new city immediately. A huge scattered flame leaps up when they want to have verification from the normans new york. City's latino is forty degrees but new city is pretty darn close to new york city. So yeah there does seem to be a lot of evidence that nostradamus was this miraculous soothsayer. I don't even have time to get into the rest of his predictions. Like the great fire of london. And the rise of napoleon louis pasteur and charlotte gall before you buy his books to see what tomorrow might have in store. It might be good to ask if no one makes the connection until after the fact can it really be called the prophecy coming up all take a closer. Look at nostradamus.

And yes. Obviously it was a scary tragic event where people needed answers for what was happening looking back. At the supposed prophecy there are some very apparent holes. The quad train itself is undeniably vague. On he says is that there will be a fire in the great new city since nostradamus was writing this more than four hundred years ago any city in the us could be called a new city and fires happen every day and the other lines of the quattro don't have anything to do with nine. Eleven like they want to have verification from the normans. I have no idea what the medieval norman have to do with this conspiracy theorists got around the problem by just removing the line entirely the versions of the poem that went around after nine eleven were totally different from the original. There were added lines like in the city of york there will be a great collapse and to metal. Birds will crash into too tall statues ensure a little bit of fakery doesn't mean the actual poems are fraud too but this speaks to a larger problem. The fact is nostradamus intentionally kept his quad trains. Beg he wanted to keep it general so it would appeal to everyone in wall that ambiguity since for obviously still talking about his prophecies today it also means that his predictions are meant to make. Coincidences seem like fate looking at all the times where it seems like nostradamus predicted the future. There's a common factor there almost always times of widespread public uncertainty which fits with a trend when life is unstable doomsday. Predictions tend to get more popular. It's the same reason why. Conspiracy theories tend to pop up after major tragedies. It's a way to make sense out of the senseless. I mean think about it. Isn't it hard to accept that terrible. Things just happen at random for no reason. Doesn't it feel better to believe that. There's some grand plan. Four centuries in the making that all of the suffering and destruction around you is at least leading to something and then if you dig deep enough you can figure out when and where the next tragedy will happen and how to avoid it no matter how far fetched. It's seems though even if we know in our minds that nostradamus prophecies aren't true it's really hard not to buy into them his own kind of like ink blot tests. Once you see a picture in the chaos you can't force your mind to stop seeing it. And even if nostradamus his most hop your predictions are just confirmation bias. That doesn't mean we can close the books on him entirely. In fact the best evidence for him as a seer of sorts doesn't have anything to do with his written prophecies. It's just an average story from when he was alive back. When nostradamus was a doctor in france he was invited to a dinner party. At lord's house the host new of his.
