Talk about the introverted yeah because I was so. The brilliance of the memes you send me are. So again, it's so sustained. It says everything in like an image, which is why I think like brilliant memes are so valuable they they convey everything but you intrigued me for sure it was like I never looked at the world this way. Thank you. But this this is a we're also investigating the compatibility of our personality types. For Yeah, we're very compatible compatible and I love it and basically, I, would just to bring everybody on the same page what I was realizing because I go I fluctuate between an NF and the NFL. But we're both like between me me we're both Weirdos but we love each other's weirdness that's the basic summary. It's grilled think I don't think we're weird I think everyone else get on our level. Thank you actually said thank you. So I agree So yeah, I have to up in my intro because door you and basically what prompted this whole thing can get everyone on the same page was even writing this dope blog that I've been consuming and you and I been working out so we can catch everybody up on all of that but it's kind of this general premise of the the journey we've been going on in Covid of like. Accepting ourselves and like being our best selves. Having this unique experience of actually like really thriving in the middle of complete utter chaos like not being blind to the chaos but. Yeah and that's why I've been bonding with you all year long and it's been really really great even though the world has been a dumpster fire. We've actually hung out more this year than ever before. Yeah. When people have been asking me how I'm doing like I mentioned you I mentioned our group workout. been a very significant part of my of my. Pandemic. So thank you for that. Oh likewise, likewise, you've been a great friend, a great sounding board and it's a pleasure being stuck inside a different place. All my God, it's the. Dream let us unite separately in different houses. Yes. Yes and consciously connect when it's could meet like it makes sense and it's comfortable. Am I? Yes say otherwise no. I. Love It. It's good boundaries and good. Emotional exploration and one of the themes like one of the entries from your blog that is super like I got very move just by the title was when you're talking about learning to like yourself. So I thought that could be a good jumping off point to kind of just dive into all the thoughts and feelings because there have been a lot. And I wanted to like lazy like can we just talk about the instagram because let's go back to the beginning shall we or like? Yes to contextualize who you are because we don't know if people have listened to our first episode together how how did you? What is your elevator pitch for me? Well now I'm a I'm supposed to be a photographer, but I'm stuck in quarantine shoe facetime and I work out a lot and retouched photos. That's. Like that's pretty much will pages right now. My background is in portrait photography in commercial photography, alive entertainment. My spare time was was spent doing nature photography and a lot of legs just outdoor exploration but you'll everything's kind of off the table now in can't do any of that. Like I'm a photographer. Photographer when the world says, I can be a photographer. Just, kind of retouching photos on a large scale and. I've been writing a lot dislike bogging more. So I things like this time has been given. The has a lot to be introspective and just. I had a previous blog that was more for my photography and I had a hard time writing on the blog released continuing to write on there just because I, started that blog in. Reich right. When I'm out of college my early twenties and it was more just trying to me setting myself up to. Seem like I was like, Hey, I'm of Darfur look at my work I. Know My Shit Yeah and. What I look back on it now I read it I'm like Oh. Yeah I'm I'm a coffee little twenty year old. which which makes sense it makes sense. Yeah So just out of this of quarantine, I started a new blog called now starving artists that it was a euro, I sat on for a while because I liked the name which came from this. There was a joke back in the day in right out of college where up to my close friends they would disappear months at a time and then they would never hear from me because I was probably like somewhere in La trying to do some sort of Hustler on a project that I would just ignore my phone's like Oh. Yeah. Milly died but then she'll come back and resume. A few months later so I I bought this year L. because it was a toddler blog at first I like kind of right. I would of write letters to my friends essentially like no I'm not dead. Yeah. I am not a starving artist. This is what I've been doing this to working on but then I eventually scrapped it he he became better staying connected to friends inside and With quarantine and everything I kinda resurrected that you're al again just so that I could reflect and be more introspective on things that I wish. I could I told myself back Beckenham starting and also It's been a good place for me costs like. What I feel what I went through and kind of finding just acceptance with the with the process and the journey and also like Morsel recognizing that things are not necessarily good or bad. They just are led. We project what we want them to be an they say hindsight is twenty twenty but really it's hindsight's twenty twenty because we choose the connect the events of the reasons and make it fit current. Yeah and I think just kind of being okay with the. See the world and not be so judgmental on our souls is a better state of mind via. A read. So it's just it's just kind of been my sounding board.

Sudan Signs Peace Deal With Rebel Alliance

"Has been signed aimed at ending ending 17 years off conflict, the signing of the peace deal in Juba between the government and the sovereign alliance made up of four rebel groups. Will be a huge boost for peace in the conflict hit regions ofthe dark, full South Kordofan and others and is expected to pave the way for ending many years off fighting between the central government and rebels. Speak to the BBC's African regional editor, Mary Harper. Mary just set set out the context for us, which has resulted in this deal. We're talking about conflict over a long period of time. Yes. The conflict in the western region of Sudan and Darfur began 17 years ago in 2003, when basically ethnic African groups rose up against what they saw as the more Arabic style domination and the government of the then president. The ousted President Omar al Bashir, unleashed this. Ferocious campaign against them, And in fact, Mr Al Bashir, under a number of others were indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity. As a result off that conflict, which even though it's reduced in scale still continues to a degree. You still hear about quite frequent clashes and up to 300 fact 300,000 people were killed in that conflict and More than two million displaced and then you also have slightly less lower intensity conflicts. Let's let's describes them as in parts of southern Sudan, so this peace deal is meant to encompass. All of those conflicts under one umbrella, and there's there, although two groups that are not included in the deal. How significant is that? It is significant. I mean, these groups One of the problems with the conflicts in Sudan is you get so many groups and splinter groups up even if you might sign a deal with some of them. There's always going to be others that breakaway and refused to participate. So unless these two groups sign is not really going to be a fully comprehensive peace agreement And also there's always the risk as this happened in the past that this peace deal was stopped afraid to fall apart on DH collapse because that has bean the repeated pattern off peace deals, especially to do with duffle on in that

"I'm excited I sit down and talk with here you man. I'm disappointed you can't see me dressed in my finest and freshly shaved respect for you. Yeah and doing looking at work and seeing some of the presentations you've done and just getting a a really good understanding of what your career has look like. I was really inspired. Not just by the work which I think is exceptional but I thought that you were one of the few photographers who focuses on the things that you that you do in terms of the environment cultural impact of socio economic issues around the world and one of the things that you really adept at is providing a sense of connectedness between all these what normally would be disparate things in the minds of many of our of Westerners tend to have such a topic and self absorbed obsession with the world revolving around us that we tend to sort of exclude things that we don't feel have a direct impact on us even though it does and I don't think that at least for for for Western people that that something that awareness that you have it comes naturally. I think it's something that at least for me has been sort of a learned. I've had to unlearn that kind of way of thinking and open myself up and I'm wondering for you. How did that sense of that connectedness? You know that I see in your work. How did you come to have that yourself? It's kind of interesting here just to kind of explore this topic right out of the out of the out of the gate here but it's just an overall feeling that we are all one connected human being we are all one connected earth country. There's no difference between myself. And someone number Wanda a first nations person in Canada. A polar bear were all part of this great mother nature all part of this earth and I see it. All is our earth our collective future art collective history that belongs to each and every one of us and all of us have a vital role to play in this world so for me. It's I see that connection point. I've seen the difference between a billionaire and someone who's on the streets having a tough time in their life were all these powerful magnetic souls that are all on our journey in this world. I respect an extraordinary operation for really each and every one of us who are on this path. Was that something you always had or? Did you have a moment of epiphany when you were younger? That sort of allowed you to see the world in that particular way is definitely something that was important to me from the streets of Belfast from my times experiences in Sarajevo some of those really powerful experiences in Haiti in the early nineties. When you're just experiencing something that is so powerful and so beyond anything that you could even imagine you'd be confronting in your life and the humility that is absorbed through every cell and fiber in my body as I photograph and spend time with extraordinarily powerful people. That frankly have the power have strengthened. Have courage that I do not possess. I am simply an observer a witness in that sense and I am a part of this journey that they are on in the experience of their life than you know. Ultimate humility to me comes from there in the eyes of the people that I've photographs from really understanding the depths. What their day to day realities like and then how I come back to this first world. It's it's a difficult thing. It was brutal that coming back in landing at LAX. In coming back into this world leading. When I just left behind That Internet itself is extraordinarily difficult to the least. I remember crying literally walking down the aisles of a grocery store and looking at their Sushi in all these meets and everything it's like my God and I'm in Saudi bullets. They're dependent on what food they can scrounge. They're taking their lives in their hands. Trying to get water for their family and Sarajevo not being shot and killed and he does understand life and such a different matter that it really comes down to a pitcher of water feeding your family for that day or providing one meal and then coming back here to realize you know what we have at our at our fingertips some so it starts to really bend and the beginning years of breaking May to a completely different understanding of other majority are. Have you know a lot of other people around the world on? That's an interesting term. You said breaking you in as if you had Basically Foundation that you basically emptied sort of destroy in order to build a a a new one with being way of describing. Yeah I also think that for me I had an extraordinary powerful desire within me to witness first hand the history as it unfolds being an apartheid South Africa before Nelson Mandela. Send it to presidency a lot of the different war-zones in and out of the genocide in Rwanda Darfur wars in the Middle East. A lot of fees experiences really changed me immensely and really broke down the nature of what I thought reality was for me and for my family and what that word means to me and how it's manifested within me and how it is indeed. You know change the way that I view the world. How did how did you see your work or hope for your work to be used during those those early years of your career and how change what was really interesting. Is that one of the first major magazines that I work with was magazine that you might have depending on where you're at school was called scholastic so that was the magazine. Went out to students I received when I was a student so lineup really establishing a great relationship where the editor they're Lee buyer and I really started to take on a lot of these projects around the world on children.

I'm Sarah, burn. Ohio just adopted one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country at bands abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. That's typically before many women even realize they're pregnant it's part of a trend here in some states to make it harder for women to get an abortion. But in some other parts of the world the trend is heading in the other direction yesterday. We mentioned that a South Korean court just lifted the ban on abortion there, and in Rwanda where abortion is mostly illegal. The president Jesse should apart into hundreds of women in jail for abortion, the world's Alison Atta has the story when Rwandan President Paul Kagami pardoned three hundred sixty seven women last week who were imprisoned for abortion, many women's advocates were surprised because it was the second time. He did it Chantal Muhoza is with the rights group spectra. It's not very often that people for different cramped support. This happened twice. It really showed us as. Activists that there was something that was to come into something positive coming. She says Muhoza met with some of the jail women after their release, and she says several of them told her they were arrested after they sought medical help for a miscarriage. They had leading then. Permitted care. Someone reported them had had an abortion undertaken prison. So it was up to them to prove that they didn't actually have induced abortion. And if you can feel that in some of these women would end up to present Rwanda used to have one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Africa. But in two thousand twelve the government revised the law to allow abortion in cases of rape, incest and danger to a woman's life. But even then a woman seeking an abortion had to get a court approval that changed last year says Asia Russell with the group health global access project, and that's important because as you can imagine women were experiencing life threatening consequences as a result of a pregnancy and having to wait for a Judah -cation to agree with what she already knew. And in some cases, there were devastating health consequences result advocates say they. They hope could pardons signal that the government may be moving towards making safe abortions more accessible to more women. No human should ever be criminalised for the health services that they require and abortion is ultimately healthcare. But Rwanda is still a conservative country says Chantal Muhoza she points out that even though more than fifty percent of the lawmakers are women. It doesn't mean that they support abortion rights for the world. I'm Alison had at a. Earlier this week. We told you about Haitian immigrants living in the US under temporary protected status. A quick update on that. Now. A judge New York has said no to the Trump administration's plan to cancel TPS for Haitians that could impact about fifty thousand undocumented Haitians who currently live and work legally in the US many of them receive TPS after the two thousand ten earthquake in Haiti which killed hundreds of thousands and created severe hardship for many people there. The Trump administration argues that conditions have improved enough to cancel TPS lawyers. Who sued the administration argued that the severe hardship continues in Haiti? They also cited derogatory comments President Trump has made about Haitians in yesterday's ruling judge William Kuhn suggested that the White House policy was racially based and he wrote a TPS termination should not be a political decision. Made to carry out political motivations the near case is one of six lawsuits challenging the administration's termination. TPS programs for people from multiple countries.

And what's new here is that they are being? Stopped here. Immigration officials.

Committed the parties agree to a settlement essence Airbnb was bullied into not following through with its own policies. They're built on land unlawfully seized, and they contribute to a system of discrimination. So the basis the underlying discrimination here has to do with Israel policy towards Palestinians. And not the fact that Airbnb chose not initially before retracting to be complicit in that abuse. Lightner also suggested that this deal listening policy was going to be enacted by people who have never been to the region. So they don't even have a concept of how people like Palestinians are being discriminated against their how do you respond to that? Is that a fair argument? Look, I mean, the reality here, these issues are quite clear, the UN guiding principle on business and human rights is quite clear business cannot contribute to and benefit from a serious rights abuses. Airbnb engaged in a lengthy process. We spent two years in gauging them of studying. I these issues understanding what's happening information is readily available. There reports information from multiple sources their UN resolutions that are out there. And they reached a decision November to the delisted settlements. And I think the important thing to understand from the decision that was made as there's all this element that they still have a pulse you're on doing business in occupied. Territories instill find settlements to be a foul of their policy, including because they contribute to existing suffering. They have. Not disclaimed that position. All they've said is that they're not going to follow their own factual determination to its logical conclusion, which is to delist instead, donating profits, essentially because they were bullied into it before the settlement, though, this all had been seen as a victory for the movement. But Airbnb now is actually stating that it's distancing itself from the Beedi s movement. Do you see that as a setback?.

"That were calculated to destroy the groups, and there was horrific testimony regarding children infants even being thrown into FIS the mess raves of of women. Torture, and and just a litany of -struction your I'm taking back to those horrific times. I mean, you worked and lived in Sudan in years as a journalist. Do you have one person or family that you know, that suffered under Bashir, and that made a particular impression on you? Gosh. So many. I think I think one that that I will never be able to forget what was interviewing a woman in a camp who she had just made it across the border, and Chad, and and she had her young young baby in her arms and she had recently given birth. She had other children that were running around. And just this overwhelming sense of having no idea what the future would look like she was a sort of Blad, I guess grateful that her children had survived when for so many of her neighbors that was not the case, but even having survived that there was a sense of total loss with respect to what the future would look like you're so the world Chen hold his breath for extradition, where do the cases against Bashir and his co-defendants actually stand in the Hague the ICC arrest warrants still outstanding. And until. Some state actually execute Ciara's forint and Bishop goes to the Hague then win going to see a trial now while we're focused on the arrest warrants by the ICC for the crimes in the four. I think it's also worth pointing out that this is the same man or al-bashir who presided over the second Sudanese civil war in south Sudan that led to the deaths of some two million people. So while the ice t t has only looking at crimes committed in the four his responsibility for atrocities within Sudan extends beyond our four into what is now south Sudan into the mountains and other areas, Rebecca Hamilton, formerly with the international criminal court now at American University in Washington, thank you. Thank you so much the ousters this month of Omar Bashir in Sudan and Abdelaziz Bouteflika ALgeria. They've got some similarities both men lost power after massive street. Protests reminiscent of the Arab spring of two thousand. Eleven but change of power raises hopes as serious reform in both countries. And that prospect is reverberating across the region. Magdi Abdelhadi is an independent Middle East analyst he's based in London. Let's turn I is Suzanne Magdi. We just heard how the country is now in the hands of strongmen cut really from the same cloth as the ousted Omar al-bashir. What do you think of the prospects for real change? Well, I think it's a difficult question to answer because the people protest on the streets have categorically rejected while the military of it the two years transition period on these seem to have learned from earlier protests in neighboring Egypt where there are very very many parallels. With what happened there in two thousand eleven the military stepped in toll the people we're gonna look off to the country where organiz elections and liquid Egypt is now, I think the Sudanese protests. Have been very aware of that. Some of the slogans actually were to defect that we not want a repeat of Egypt and very similar slogans were raised in Algiers. Where also the protesters that managed to bring to so far a peaceful end the reign of former president of that is is beautifully..

"I'm Marco werman under ousted President, Omar al-bashir. The Sudanese government was responsible for Tross cities in Dr for the consequences are still felt today for the people have for its was and continues to be totally devastated communities were destroyed and many have to this day not been able to pretend to land. But we'll Bashir be held accountable. Also, Mexico's southern border with Guatemala migrants continued across on their way to the US, plus Switzerland decides coffee is not vital to human survival. Although plenty of Swiss disagree. Oh, it's really sad. Because it has emotional gets a binding people together. That's why we feel that we won't have coffee. Always all that and more today on the world. I'm Marco werman. This is the world. Good to have you here today. Momentous times across North Africa this past week for the first time in years civilians, are feeling hope in Sudan and Algieria after they helped to oust dictators who'd been in power. For decades, though, big questions remain about what happens next in both countries. I to Sudan President Omar al-bashir has gone, and we learned today the shears defense minister who took the helm as the leader of the transitional government, Sudan, he's also stepping down other military. So sits in the former government officiel remain in power, though. And they say they will not allow Omar al-bashir to be extradited to the Hague. The Hague is home to the ICC the international criminal court where Bashir faces charges of crimes against humanity. Rebecca Hamilton used to work for the ICC. And now teaches law at American University in Washington, thanks for being back back. What charges does Bashir face in the Hague? Exactly. And what do they relate to he faces very serious charges of genocide? Of all crimes crimes against humanity for atrocities committed by the Sudanese government and their proxy militia force, which we know as the Jesuit enough for starting in two thousand and three the genocide charges in particular say that president Bashir is responsible for overseeing the apparatus of the state that was designed to destroy at least three particular ethnic groups within doff war, the four visit Gallois and the messily people, and it did this by killing them by causing serious physical and mental harm, including mass rapes and by inflicting conditions of life..

Sudan's military ousts president in face of protests

"Months of protests on the streets of the capital co two and other towns and cities the anger directed at President Obama shit who's been in power for three decades will go he's under arrest told in the army is taking over his the Sudanese. Defense minister general on what if speaking on state TV just about an hour ago would like five the time to chat of the Security Council that the regime of the regime has been removed being held in a secure place with within in the studio, the BBC's Africa at its Fergal, Keane, he's gone, but what happens next who's in charge. Carry the military who are in charge of the moment. You said a few moments ago. People will be wondering what the opposition's viewpoint is what I can tell you in the last few minutes issued a statement saying they reject any idea of military takeover, and they called for the protests continue I think that's because people have had the experience of watching what happened in Egypt. They've looked L geria- and the general tendency of territory regimes not just in Africa. But but certainly in swathes of of inflexible endurable, and Kenny if you like in the way that they can take over from a mass protest movement appear to. To be moving towards democracy. But essentially keep the same kind of system in place. That's what hugely worries people. Now, if you do get tens of thousands of people who stay on the streets, hundreds of thousands of people confrontation of some kind with this new military leadership is inevitable. Remember, they've talked about a curfew or people into those. They've talked about a state of emergency for three months people keep to the terms of the state of emergency and above all are they going to tolerate any suggestion that the future of the country is going to be defined decided by the military yet. Again, just thinking about the man who made that announcement, the defense minister, isn't he called the circle? Anyway, I mean, it's very hard to have been part of the inner circle of Omar el-bashir over the last decade or more not be contaminated with the extraordinary brutality, which that regime was capable of. We saw in Dr forest for myself on the ground in Darfur, we saw in south Sudan during before the country became independent in the civil war. There we saw in the new amount. Mountains, it is looking around there and trying to find the good guys was always going to be difficult. It's only in the in the hours on days ahead that we will see whether to cynic liberal to skeptical of whether there is the possibility of more moderate younger officers coming to the fore because remember they were the ones who went protected the demonstrators in the last few days when they were attacked by regime loyalists the fact that I'm el-bashir has been toppled. I mean again, and we we should minimize this is hugely significant given the his grip on power for so long. Absolutely. The only it's all about about minimizing minimizing is about recognizing that this is a really fluid dynamic situation. And we don't know if the protesters who started in December. I remember this is comparatively short space of time. They start into Semper simmering discontent over over years of corruption and repression no sparked into action by the tripling of bread prices. And then they gather force. They've become a very cohesive movement. You know able to articulate coherent demands and apply pressure where matters and critically capable of mobilising vast numbers of people so to remove him and to see the thirty years of that dictatorship has been through people power. Let's not forget how this happened through people power pressure on the army. It is immensely significant. But we now need to see where the people are goes where the pressure will be applied.

Okay. You tried me for that? I beat that case. I won. This isn't a court of law, obviously, she's trying to get to the bottom of weather. This is an ongoing issue for him. He's saying basic, let's be honest. What his translation of what he's saying is. Yeah, I did that before the remember he was charged with child pornography, which is and that was you can make us a legitimate case. There were ten counts of Darfur. They weren't all child pornography. That was that was part of it that was part of it. Because I mean, the big part was it was on video. And it was there was never a it was kind of one of those things where he was never during trying to sell his video to child porn connoisseurs. Just I was videotaped. It was a sex tape. Why if I remember, right? Here's why he lost that case because he won the case is because the girl said I was fourteen at the time and two other witnesses said that that wasn't her.

I'm talking about the other cases where women have come forward and said R Kelly had sex with me. When I was under the age of eighteen R Kelly was abusive to me emotionally, and physically and verbally are Kelly took me in a black room where unspeakable things happen. This is what they're saying about. These are old rumor schrool, whether they're almost new home with not true. Play cut three, please. And correct me. If I'm wrong that you have never held anybody against their will. I well, I'm stupid would never aren't Kelly with all been through in my way pass the whole somebody. Let alone for fast six fifty.
