"We're GONNA hit record there than injections can can do more and then you can. Yes go on that on live fear. You are listening to hold on. We got this. Our second podcast. I'm Alison and Jason. And today we are going to talk about fear versus having fixed in times when you want to be really read all those challenging times that you experience in business and it seems very right. Now yeah yet. We were talking today a little about. Obviously we're still sitting in the middle of a corona virus situation where businesses are shut down. Our business has been shut down. People are dealing with being fearful of catching this virus family members who had it fearful for their finances their jobs just a lot of over Wyoming fear and uncertainty. Almost you WANNA to make it simple a simple solution right like where it's you said. Fdr only thing to fears here itself. And then everything's okay. Anything feels that. It's okay now because we've used that quote over and over again but in reality we all have our own individual experiences alison. I had an interesting conversation that car. Today 'cause I woke up frustrated today got a mood almost immediately even though I slept fairly well and we're out trying to DOOR DASH. Today was a slow day. And so we kind of had broached the subject of of our you know our at all. It's morning how we were feeling how he came and the perspectives in which we found ourselves for one thing that I have always been is using in young yeah. It's been a huge balance in throughout our entire lives together and yet again here. We find ourselves but we had not found the balance because we hadn't really discovered each other perspective. You know I think you know. We have different expectations of what? Those perspectives are. And how we're dealing with those and even though we essentially have the exact same problem How we're handling. That problem is totally. Yes and how we feel better is totally different. What triggers is totally different. I hate the orchard. The word trigger tricks me. It never used the word. It's always been a thing. What we experiencing horse the raider now but what we expose no silver loaded trigger was. I didn't watch gene autry. I think it was so anyways. The feeling that we're feeling has been in existence feeling being anxious all of a sudden after something happens or feeling feeling fearful. Now there's just a twenty-first-century where it's being triggered and I mean obviously shame or no judgment to people feeling not way. No I just personally hate the word. I don't hate the action a seat the work. We don't hit the emotion. Now we just and banana. It's been beaten to death. Just ya all that much anyways so we were talking today about that. It's different for both of us and and just trying to you. Know when you're when you're with your partner and you want to take care of your partner and you want to make them feel better and feel and help them find security or help them find feeling better and you can't always achieve that and it's frustrating when you can't but it happens it's so frustrating just because you know it goes back to. I guess you want to try and constantly be fixing things early. Do the male side tends to WanNa fix things you know not broken gutter fix gutter right. Yeah and it's become really frustrating for me because I look at this and there is nothing that we can do terrific sense like there's literally nothing and every time we're trying something new to quote unquote fixit if feels even more frustrating and even more triggering for me with anxiety and just like this is also not going to work get the business and our lives and the country back to a healthy place. This is going to make cove in nineteen go away and it's fucking tight and it makes me frustrated but that's not helpful to you because you are fixer. You like to fixing to do security where it gives me insecure ads like secure about something. I'm going to even if it's something around the House I'm GonNa fix something and then but you know it's like right now. I can't even do that. You know just because it's it's there's so many challenges with regard that because we're trying to cut back on expenses so there's certain things are on those lines this morning you big part of my life is working out. That's how I keep my sanity when I can't fix things because guess what I'm fixing my body and so this morning I I use this programming Near the plug called Thunder Bro. It's David Lipson From Cross Fit H. Q. Or formerly has Functional Bodybuilding Program. That I've been doing. We have been doing for about a year. Give or take and and they've been really good about adjusting. The programming for those of us that have work at home and it was my first day. I looked at it. I'm like I'm lacking equipment and the gym. I work out at platform. Strength here in. Denver was enough to lend me some equipment. They've been really great to their members. Amazing lending some things out that you know win. The Gym Reopens. They all go bathroom. We all get together and they're posted workouts and things like that. You Know Jim. I was affiliated with point time across Colefax been doing the same thing remembers members communities Denver. Just BEEN EXTRAORDINARY TIRED. Though and it's it's very frightening for those companies to because as much as they're able to do right now in what they're doing their trench retain the membership fees that they have health and we're not getting any new memberships. It's just like we're not selling any new ticket. Yeah it's it's a very similar vote. They were know you know whether you're Jim Restaurant or a dinner theater. You rely on your your customers coming back or or you know making those purchases and you know gyms it's relying on your growing your your membership and right. Now they're members are having to pay for a service that they can't use and tried to add value to that envious of that you know for any of these gyms sits. It's it's very difficult for them. It's really interesting like I really do like the innovation that's happening. I think that's kind of exciting. It's just it's just innovation coming from frustration. I think it's like no matter how innovative these gyms are. There's probably a big part of part of them that they're like great. We're being innovative. But it's still not going to make sure that this we come out of this alive and I think that's I think that's what I'm experiencing so much of every time we try to do something fix something it's like okay. We'll do like what is this really going to do? And that's negative lake terrible thought. But that's thought coming out of or because you feel like Christmas right and I feel afraid. I think when we started dinner detective in Twenty nineteen arbitrary in two thousand nine we. I was very fearful. I actually was very fearful person and I still definitely carry that in in myself but I S- gotten a lot better. I'm much more. I'm more interested in taking risks than I ever have that and so with this it bringing up so much of that old fear and I do this cycle in my head when I'm fearful I do the cycle of what if so it's like it's just like what if people stop buying tickets and what if that leads to us not being able to open chosen. What if that and it's just a downward spiral of constant. What if so? Which are it's completely unhealthy? Because again I can't do anything about it and I already have this gigantic antic plateful of Cova at one thousand nine that I can't do anything about so it's like I'm really trying to get my brain wrapped around. Don't add to the full of Shit you can't take care of. You like just eliminate the thought of fear and have a little better faith. Will we started? We were both will you were leading real estate and I was going to maintain my real estate business which I did for another six years and I did a vision board. When you're I instead of a New Year's resolutions I always try to make and I have a new year's slogan or a New Year motto and so one of the years my motto was face not fear and It was one of my most successful years getting over fear. Because I where I'm not maybe showing faith to a specific religion just having faith in myself having faith in my actions having faith in the people that I choose to work with having tasted Casey makes that fear fueled lot more manageable. And so right now this would be a great topic for the podcast talking about how you step away from being fearful and you're focused more on having in anything you can find. Yeah I think that's one of the struggles that I have faith and things agnostic to begin with. And so that's that's that's a struggle and and you know that's that's that's an area of weakness for lack of a better word era of opportunities court of inaccurate very gross. No no no. It's good it's good. It is an area of opportunity. Yeah I feel like if we continue to be just super fearful and sit in that spot. There really isn't room for anything to happen There really isn't room. Feel better because you're just continuing to perpetuate emotion of fear and it's like you're leaving no room within your synapses and within your brain or in your in your being to feel anything other than that fear and and that's what's been driving me. I'm constantly trying to go back to fix problem or situation. I'm just trying trying to come up with some sort of solution and you're kind of helping me along with that instead of giving me some ideas but the reality is you know there you know you have to stop breathe. Have faith that all the systems you put in place is going to play out of this thing when the time is right verses you know trying to count the solution in the moment because you know for ten years you know ticket. Sales are low. I take action if private Sales are low. I take action. I know the certain steps that I need to do to make those actionable steps worthwhile and to have actual tangible results and right now. I can't do any of that. It's driving me crazy but it's a hey I mean I really. I'm honestly wondering like he kind of hinting at this succeed but I honestly wonder because I think that everything happens in our life reason I think whether you believe in God or do you believe in the universe or whatever. I think that everything comes to you because it needs to. You need it to happen and I wonder as a country if we didn't need this time to take a fucking break I don't know. Did we need to chill the hell out and stop spending money for a second? Did we need to sit at home and enjoy our family and be grateful for our health because a lot of these things that we do in our life like every day? We're taking for granted and I mean I hate to say like we're all being punished because I don't think we are. I don't think this needs to be a punishment. Needs to feeling punishment if we're able to fake it till we feel like if we're able to look at this from the perspective of life. This isn't that bad. It could be much worse. Well it can be so much worse in line with that you know just kind of put it out there and this isn't the political or anything that danger no. It's not but I have since Obama was elected I haven't seen this country so divided it started with Obama. You know because you know for political reasons the right there was division happening and then it's just gotten to an apex with with trump in office and that's his brand is divide and conquer right and so from the perspective my limited perspective..

"Well adjusting to life in adopted country can be a challenge for the ABC's intrepid correspondence but some countries are more of a challenge than others. And it's not always the ones that you might expect. Lipson recently made the leap from Indonesia to America and he's starting to think that the in USA stands for swindle. It was meant to be a simple day out. Hirakata gopher drive have lunch come home but in the United States and certainly here in Washington. Dc nothing is simple. Everything it seems is in fact a swindle. I The hire car online. The quote was about sixty five Australian dollars eminently reasonable so I booked but going in to pick out the keys the price had inexplicably gone up to one hundred fifteen dollars mice double. I had chosen to limit liability for about ten dollars but the Matt's still didn't add up. This is life in America where the price never the price taxes fees and surcharges and never included in the quoted price. Even when you ask what you need to pay for Sandwich or concert ticket or phone plan your told one price and then watch the cash register magically throw up an extra ten or twenty percent and to be clear. This is before the much maligned cheap. Anyway I booked the car. It was a Friday afternoon and the Hayek Office was about to close for some reason. It was open every day until seven pm except Fridays when I closed up shop at five so I asked if I could prepay for an additional hour or two on Saturday since returning the car by four thirty in the afternoon would limit our options for such saying. I was told that would incur. Another one hundred fifteen dollars even for a few extra minutes a full day's charge of course that's why the office shuts at five on Fridays. They know people are more likely to book an extra day or get distracted a winery and perhaps missed the deadline. Like we almost did so to swindles before. I even put the key in the ignition. We drove to hop ferry and historic town. Where in eighteen fifty nine abolitionist John Brown through gasoline on the flames of civil war by instigating a revolt by armed slaves. We set the map to the visitor's center and just before we arrived Lo and behold a toll booth. It was thirty dollars to drive onto the side told myself well. We pay for National Parks in Australia. So I suppose it's reasonable. He will give him some great assistance by a real American Park Ranger in a real smokybear style hat. He very helpfully pointed out shuttle bus. That would take us to the side but as we shuttle past the toll booth and down the road to town. I realized this was the same road. We'd just driven on anyone. In the know had just driven straight to town and avoided the thirty dollar fee swindled number three felt even worse because smokey. The Bay was the culprit. We bought some hot dogs for lunch and then with tip paid double what the number on the chalkboard suggested then eventually got shuttle bus back to the car and headed for home since we had a bit of time pass leave. I thought why don't take the scenic. Route turned off the freeway but they once again and other toll booth scenic route was in fact a toll road no warning sign of a fee ahead no way to reverse out turnaround just slot for our credit card. Another nine dollars enough to three kilometers and other toll booth and other credit card slot and another six dollars as a straight talking strengthen. It's hard not to get upset at these constant traps here in the United States. After my time in Indonesia wrongly concluded it was the Bali's street Hawker had to keep your eye on it turns out it's the overly polite American. That's the biggest threat to your wallet. I guess it's the logical conclusion of capitalism running rampant combined with undefended social services like national parks and roads. Even smokey the bear has had to become. Shall we say street smart to keep honey on the table? It seems you have to be shock just to get by. Gold knows how someone who struggles with English or numbers would cope. Maybe they don't and it makes a little more sense to me. How the nation's most famous shock a dealmaker who repeatedly dotted contractors secured? Hundreds of millions of dollars in questionable tax breaks and delivered subpar apartments to customers could be revived by his supporters as a very stable genius that was ABC.

"Well for museums around the world the Smithsonian brand in Washington. DC is considered the gold standard five million visitors stroll through the Carlos of the museum team of national of natural history every year one of them is the ABC's north. America correspondent David Lipson who recently stumbled upon a surprisingly Australian Ralian exhibit on a recent New York Times list of fifty two places around the world to go in twenty twenty Washington. DC came in at number one on that may come as a surprise to those who describe it as Canberra on steroids. Not Me all the sights and the newly buzzing nightlife shore but for me me. The museums run by the Smithsonian Institute of the clincher. The air and Space Museum Museum of Natural History Museum of National History Street to name a few all full of wonder and free thanks to an Englishman James Smithson who died almost two hundred years ago leaving behind a giant pile of money. Mike Lawrence is the Australian director for exhibits the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History visit and had never been to the United States So it was he who gave his inheritance to our government Back in the early years of the Nineteenth Century for the increase and diffusion of knowledge. it was fairly vague bequest. Our Congress debated for months and years. Did that mean to start a university city in fact even wants his own was founded. Nobody was entirely sure. What are broader mission was But it gave us the wherewithal to than Both sponsor expeditions Sponsor searches for specimens to sponsor scientists themselves and then to put some of our wonders on displays so so those displays today is a new exhibit uniquely Australian Sir Joseph Banks and triple team scientists and illustrators. That's a snippet from multi-screen immersive video show. That guides the museum go through the journey of the endeavor as it sailed into a body of water now known as botany bay you in April seventeen seventy I think banks felt like it was all his Christmases had come at once. The creative director of the exhibit is Cacique. You see maps that that for this palpable. This monster still on the map. They say I've never seen before and they're just thinking. Wow this. Is this incredible. This is so other worldly as you walk out from. The video showed slightly dazzled there sits a small somewhat unremarkable. Remarkable glass cabinet that took me by surprise inside a few drawings and a small bank Zia Branch and flower snatched from the Bush two hundred and fifty years ago and still perfectly preserved discovered by chance in the Smithsonian archives. What what was your reaction when you heard? was that specimen this in this very I couldn't believe it because you know the embassy staff brought down here to talk to you the Smithsonian and they said we've got Collections of plants from banks as well collection. I'm thinking really. That's just incredible tossed Marc Lawrence from the Smithsonian. How specimen came to be here in America? Well that's a mystery and I'd like to do some more investigation of it. Our guests is is just talking. To one of the curator's it was that so much of this came back to Britain and I imagine that because perhaps because of smithson coming from the UK and then as as the Smithsonian was sort of growing its collections. Probably made an appeal to collectors and Might have been a swap. Maybe we sent the Brits something thing in got something back either way. It's out of the volt and on full display now on the often. Feels like the poor stepchild here because it's not as dramatic as dinosaur bones or fish in pickle jars or something of that sort. They tend to be sort of. Did Dryden desiccated things and so to bring them To remind people oh of the kind of the beauty and the wonder and the enormous variety. I think it'll be just a delight for audiences just as it was for Joseph banks one of the original foreign correspondence respondents. That was the north. America correspondent David Lipson..

"The NBC is Indonesia correspondent. David Lipson has just wrapped up a relatively short but intense posting in the world's biggest muslim-majority nation since at the start of last year he's covered a period of significant chaos and upheaval punctuated by synopsys earthquakes and political unrest his his is last dispatch from Indonesia for Correspondence report my first story reporting from Indonesia was about a more green in January twenty eighteen and a group known as Pi the Islamic Defenders Front had marched on facebook's Jakarta office to protest with excessive AC- of noise and fury the social media giant's decision to ban a bunch of their facebook groups for promoting hatred or violence in Indonesia we reported the mob had moved online and it was defending its Earth by protesting in the real world it also told a deeper story percolating through so so much that happens he first attempts by the mob often successful to dictate decisions in business the courts or parliaments but more more on that later second fees the famed and glorious diversity of Indonesia's brand of Islam was being painted over by a homogeneous conservative even intolerant and at times radical variety July last year. I covered an Islamic exorcism awesome known as a rookie ceremony here. It's being performed on a former street. Urchin named what's your who's reaching and riding on the stone floor went went into the room skeptical and came out genuinely unsettled it was we were told all part of Islamic cleansing process that includes the removal revolt of all tattoos and the apparent expunging of homosexual tendencies and business was booming this creeping conservative theme popped up regularly in my time here from the somewhat comical take the mermaid statues at a theme park which after fifteen years without controversy was suddenly deemed obscene gene and had this stone breasts covered in cloth and much more sinister Liana and ethnic Chinese Buddhist who complained about the volume of a mosques call to prayer in response a mob ransacked and torched more than a dozen Buddhist temples those involved in that were never punished but Malian. A- who made the complaint was jailed for eighteen months there are regular examples of religion being used by the powerful against the week here she learned to dislike the expression God's will with an added by parents who refuse to vaccinate their children because of fears the serum wasn't halal it all by victims of disasters from Pollute Lombok to the sooner straight who told their suffering was God's will win. Please help went entirely unanswered unanswered until long after the voices of their loved ones trapped under the rubble fill silent the competing forces of Indonesia's religious character with perhaps most starkly on display in this year's presidential election. The Islamists had fallen in behind the challenge pro Serbian to his final rally felt like a chis- feeding exercise for conservative Islam starting before dawn with morning prayers into Carter's main stadium with everyone dressed in white it featured across via jumbo screen to the exiled firebrand cleric Habib Riddick the leader of the Islamic Defenders Front which had protested tasted at facebook more than a year before the President Joko Widodo rallies rallies were in contrast a celebration of color and diversity but even this apparently progressive president had been compelled to install one of the nation's most most famous conservative figures modeled Amin as his vice presidential candidate the deadly riots that followed the election were heavily tinged by religion as well so much so that rival forces effectively laid down arms five times a day to pry this brings me to the other element of that first I facebook protests story recovered in the thick of the violent post election rallies swore up close the power and resolve of the Indonesian and more those involved for months being Egged on by the losing candidate truly believes they could overturn legitimate election results through she numbers spend determination after all they done it a few years before with Jakarta's Popula Christian governor a hawk who was ousted and ultimately jailed after demonstrators strikes on mass claimed he committed blasphemy when adopted audio recording went viral in the post-election protesters were repelled the biggest and often most violent mob of all the state apparatus of police and the military but to keep the police chiefs and military brass on side the president. It seems had to make some big concessions in the lead up to election day. He promised to allow active military members back into civilian posts sweeping away hard-won reforms aimed at keeping soldiers out of government and more recently he allowed the appointment of a police officer who was facing facing accusations of ethics violations to lead the powerful corruption eradication commission critic sort as a nod and a wink to the notoriously Oria sleep corrupt police force to continue its shakedowns at the same time the president endorsed parliament's revision of laws governing the commission were plainly. I it's stripping. It's independence and hobbling its ability to conduct crucial wiretaps protest we attended attended at the PK turned out to be rented out who were supporting the challenges effectively campaigning for the corruption flood gates to be opened the same time the parliament was also trying to push through a complete revamp of the Criminal Code that could see couples jailed for six outside of marriage and turn turn insults against the president into a criminal offence my final weeks here in Indonesia were filled with some despair. It felt like all the hard-fought progress that started with riff. Massey twenty years ago with being washed away even more galling since it was all happening in the days after the death of former the president. BJ Habibie the man who sit Indonesia's new course after decades of dictatorship the first protests we attended against all of this works for me. Disappointingly disappointingly small Indonesia seems is sleepwalking toward an uncertain and much more conservative future. The president it seemed was either disengaged engaged. Ill informed or powerless to stop the so-called morality laws being rammed through parliament after years of pressure by Islamist mobs CBS. Then finally the students woke up tens of thousands flooded the the streets they were the spark that lit the riff Massey Fire in nineteen ninety ice and they weren't going to let all that bloodshed back then be for North Josh so a mob of Islamists was my first story. A mobile students fighting back was fittingly my last and as I write this it seems the students may have won the die but nothing is certain found Indonesia to be a wondrous chaotic country where those who are meant to be in charge right up to the president buffeted and bullied around by whatever mob is projecting the most power at the time but I've found Indonesia's greatest asset reminds. It's people are on CA- chill the workers and of course the students who when the chips down will stand up to perhaps just save this awesome and underappreciated neighbor of ours from itself.

Riot police, razor wire and fans with flares are regular fixtures in the Indonesian Premier League

"I so let's start as we always do without international correspondents. And when it comes to football fan violence, most people think of Europe or South America, very few of the stray straightens lying on the beach in Bali have any idea that just a few suburbs away? What of the world's wildest sporting leagues is in play in the Indonesian Premier League riot police razor-wire and fans with flares regular fixtures and entertained rivalries are sometimes deadly as David Lipson discovered while shooting at episode of foreign correspondent, it was meant to be a friendly match between Bali nodded and Jakarta's team procedure. But even before we got into the Bali stadium abroad between rival fans breaks. As the fight rolls through the crowd. We start recording piece to camera, but the angry fans don't want us to film and try to grab it our equipment. I know the. Breakdown. Indonesian Premier League. It's common for only one teams fans to be allowed in the stadium. Such is the fear of violent, holy Egan ISM. But in September twenty three year old hunting Assira, a member of Jakarta's fan club. Jack mania had gone to a match against bundle in defiance of such a ban. He wasn't wearing his team colors, but one of the rival Vikings supporters recognized him as a member of Jack mania he was set upon by a mob and beaten to death as hundreds watched on filming the attack and sharing it online. The first time. I watched the shaky video ahead to close my eyes. But I knew immediately. It was a story we should cover the lynching of a young fan aside. There was much more to this story worth exploring the promise of spectacular. Pictures of fans running amok in the stains and surfing, teen wolf style on top of buses on they to games. The history of the entertain rivalries that have led to play as being transported to matches in armored personnel carriers for their own protection. It was a story made for foreign correspondent. So we'd go into Bali to meet the parents of Ari the twenty three year old who was killed. They'd been invited to the match as guests of Jakarta's fan club. Jack, mania cameramen, Phil. And I went into the stands to film Ariz parents and then met up with one of Jack mynas hotline commanders. That's when we noticed what was going on in the knee. Abide Bali, STAN. Douses of supporters had taken this shirts often, we're getting seriously rowdy. I started lighting flays and throwing them onto the field bringing the match to a standstill armored police trucks moved onto the field with water cannon at the ready. Dozens of riot police with shields also moved in. But it did nothing to calm the Bali United stands we wanted to get closer to the action. So we made the long walk out of the Jakarta stands around the razor wire outside and moved into the Bali United zone. But as soon as we emerged from the will and talking listening to sickens were set upon by enraged fans. We've pushed us back down stairs as our brave fixer Ambrose held them at bay footage of them. Misbehaving could lead to long lifetime bans. So they didn't want us filming. So much for that idea. We didn't get a single shot. So we figured the next best thing was getting onto the field. The problem was our media passes didn't allow us access to the pitch. But hey, this is Indonesia, so we thought we'd give it a crack and low and behold the gate closest to us that opened directly onto the field was not locked. We just wanted straight in past the riot police and onto the field so much for the league's claims of heightened security, what followed was bizarre constant disruption flares integration from the Bali stands. Dozens of riot police just leaning on their shields watching it all unfold. One stage about ten fans with their faces covered jumped down onto the edge of the pitch and still no reaction from the police as oppose the police were just letting the anger burn out on its own. I hope they would have sprung into action. If there was a pitch invasion of things really don't have hand. But for an Australian who's used to fan. Being frogmarched out of the cricket just for making a snake out of empty, plastic cups. It was eye-popping. And a reminder of just how long the arm of the law stretches back home after three or four stoppages to the match due to the rowdy fans. The game finally wrapped up Takada one and were now on their way to taking home the premiership Cup. What only realized once I reviewed the tapes back in Jakarta was the Bali fans chanting mafia Unggie mafia dogs. We thought Noah gunning for the Jakarta team or the Jack mania fans, but it was their own team officials and the riff that had sent them into a rage. A rumor had spread that the match had been fixed. And then when the score played out exactly as they'd heard. They went wild since then experts in gambling patterns and match-play have claimed that the match was indeed a setup and there's now a cloud hanging over the Jakarta teams entire premiership season. The league bosses stepped down the claims of mismanagement his replacement Joko Drina who was also somehow allowed to be manager of Jakarta's winning team last year, a clear conflict of interest has this week been arrested by an anti-soccer mafia task force that was set up since the season finished. He's accused of destroying evidence relating to match-fixing. He's had his passport confiscated if. Only we'd had wind of that. When we interviewed him Indonesian football on and off the field is nothing if not entertaining. And despite the deadly rivalries wild fans end corruption we will always welcomed with open arms into the thick of the drum beating choreographed raw of the teetotalling crowd puck from a few minor run ins at that Bali game. So next time you're in town, chick fil it's well worth getting along to a match and a safe bit. You've never seen anything like it. He sells it well, doesn't he David Lipson reporting from Jakarta?

Oh and the passenger. He's also wanted by the Lebanese army. He's got thirty warrants out against him. He says is we pass through another chick point the pita Tauch road trip might need a different soundtrack right is on the storm. His brain is where Mike. Eventually after asking for directions.

But Chuck Schumer actually lowering his original offer of one point six billion dollars for border security to one point three billion dollars. If I wrote a book called the art of the deal. I don't think I would take an offer of one point three when you had previously offered me one point six since his presidential campaign. Trump has repeatedly promised he would get Mexico to pay for the wall in the end Mexico's gonna pay for the wall. I'm just telling. Today. More than two years after I making that pledge Mulvaney acknowledging the money won't come from Mexico. None of that is Mexico paying for the wall.

Sources tell ABC news, the president has become increasingly angry after prominent Republicans sided with Mattis, and that family and outside advisers encouraged him to move Mattis out now, but today the drumbeat of criticism continued I'm devastated by this.

Indonesia a haven for heavy metal

"A pretty tantalizing reckon there for story that Chevron will eventually emerge from the jungle to fall for the IB say that out the family, she found they will have a great story to tell. We'll be hearing that some time down the track. Guess you'd have to say. For all the abbey's as foreign correspondents. That job can take them too strange and unfamiliar worlds, and a touch of culture shock can be a common affliction. But sometimes their assignments too far like hell's can bring them reminders of their own origins. Let's see now from Indonesia correspondent, David Lipson who found himself getting his head bang on in Jakarta, recently, LIPA, Don, these black shirt and ripped jeans to attend the recent guns N roses concert in Jakarta in his search for Indonesia's heavy middle. My him. My wife spotted the tickets in the Jakarta Facebook group guns and roses, reunited, most of them anyway and playing in Indonesia's capital. Just a stone's throw away from the mall known as Sonoran city with the grass is paved in the air is greedy. I was in. I'd seen them in nine hundred ninety three at Eastern Creek in Sydney's, western suburbs, aged fourteen gun is infamy end decadence was at its peak just before they imploded in disappeared for a few decades concert was described by the media at the time is the biggest gig Australia had ever seen. It'll be remembered as a day of heavy metal mayhem the estrange. Impress were obsessed with the band's reputation for causing trouble. If they press conference even Norman Gunston got into yet. Gunston roses. A few decades later presumably with a Bank balances depleted nave reformed axl slash Duff. Dizzy back on tour and willing to sweat it out on stage in Jakarta's swampy heat. He'd make HAMAs a surprise to hear, but Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, which is facing a rash of religious. Conservatism is something of a haven. The heavy metal groups of black clad longhaired, locals can be seen huddled around their phones in parks all over the capital. And as a nation Indonesia is prolific when it comes to producing noise that I'm told is pretty well respected on the middle. Saint. This is all female all Muslim band. Betcha approach which this year gained worldwide attention for the unconventional attire headlines. Like hid bangers in jobs. Pleasant. Little Diddy is by band called Berga kill from bundle. I've previously played heaving crowds at the big day out and sound way concerts in Astrid, just wrapped up another successful European tour with Philo minstrels dead scored on this night, though in Jakarta, g NF and IRS was the name up in lights and among the crowd.

It was a gift from Denmark's, prime minister and Under Indonesia's anti corruption laws couldn't be accepted without a price. I knew the president's attendance of the stadium was sure to cause even more traffic havoc than usual as his motorcade would shut down all the roads near the stadium. So it set aside a modest two and a half hours to get to a nearby restaurant. Grab a quick burger with some friends and walk over to the stadium. I'd massively underestimated Jakarta's infamous much it or traffic jams. When the taxi finally arrived to pick me up. It took two hours to travel the three point seven kilometres. Why didn't you get out and walk? He you ask well idea. Eventually with no footpath had to weave between cars and motorbikes on the motorway in a slow motion race to get their time walking down the middle of the road. Twelve lane road. I think I'm chugging along when the traffic guys bit faster. And then going back to a walk when when things. Resume that crawls after twenty minutes of inhaling exhaust, fumes miraculously bumped into my friends who had the tickets, and we made our way across the overpass above an ocean of red brake lights honking homes eventually into the stadium sitting down just in time to be welcomed to the jungle. So who's written about LA yearly eighties? But it could just as easily be Jakarta 2018. The gig lasted a full three hours.

I realized like those on stage, and like me the gun is crowded gained a few years and a few kilograms since the early ninety s may have been twenty years between concerts, one thing guns and roses fans have always head.

"This is an ABC podcast. Hello, and welcome to correspondence reports until Toma. Sarisi. I to Indonesia and a story that stall mated the headlines for days more than a thousand people have been confirmed date after an earthquake in soon NAMI on the island of silhouette, Waseem and Indonesia correspondence. David Lipson and end Barca have been reporting on the story at every stage, but behind the scenes covering disaster. Like these has its challenges earlier. I caught up with David Lipson right now. I'm at the market in color city which are starting to show some early signs of returning to normal. People are buying fish chickens, corn, vegetables around me, the prices of vaseline flighted about three times, but at least there is a little bit of communist going on year right now. Now let's take a step back for a moment. What was your first reaction when you heard about the earthquake and this NAMI boarding at the time? Did you have any idea to come to this now? We didn't realize it would be. Like this because often to NAMI warnings issued and listed. In fact, that's exactly what happened with this one. This NAMI warning was issued. We knew it was a big quake, but then the warning was lifted and it was shortly after that after sort of raiding late that we started to say a few videos because these days everyone has smartphones, and, and so unlike times as possible, you've seen these disasters in this region anyway, they're very quickly shade. So very quickly we were saying they horrific videos of the ocean surging into the city, but we weren't able to verify whether it was indeed this this area, the city of hollow and it was actually a billboard that showed a local politician in one of the videos that concern for us, that guy that that stiffly pollute, he's a local politician. So this is this is real. This is happening and you have intially ghost there, but you're of course based in Jakarta. So how did. You get to the areas can step us through that journey show when we said out first team live by in Bhakkar and still Hemingway eating, we knew it would take them a couple of days to get this. So I stayed into Cada hoping that Holloway would open for commercial flights. It didn't. So in the end, we were booked on a fly, but we got kicked off of the blood. So we had to find another way in the short version is it took a full forty, eight hours of traveling at one hours played the first night hours the Knicks not. And that involved a fifteen hour drive through the mountains, skimming around big land, floods wedding bulldozers to clear the road and fighting just horrific traffic. And then when we arrived, finally in Palou inverted commas accommodation that the others had been saying for a couple of nights involved them sort of sleeping on the driveway of a hotel and having access at least two one toilet between about thirty people and and a bucket that you could sort of wash yourself. With that when we got there. Unfortunately, the owner said, I'm really sorry, but, but you can't stay. He me with full. We've got thirty children arriving shortly and and you can't stay. So we ended up. I not pitching a tent on the on the footpath out of the front, which was, you know, pretty hot. There are big to show that not. We lifted chin, fair that following night and when returned it had been stolen. Pickler in great need and well in the strategy, I could probably be lifted chains on the night too stupid, probably by the end of the day as well. But they met minted not just the change that scene mattress that we had and and also things like my towel and then the lock had gone as well. So as a result of of kind of paying them height to horrify your your listeners. But nothing drying myself after wash with a bucket with dirty. The water of you've had now, the impact of the disaster is settling in what people in pilot doing at the moment, how they responding to all of this. Just extrordinary. They just causative talk to people very religious people that kind of just take everything in stride even disasters like this. I mean, a lot of the people that fleeing absolutely look shellshocked they, they've always been severely traumatized and you can see that written all over this ISIS and occasionally, though come up to you and woman's pick you to tell their story to the world. But the vast majority of hollow TV was not actually damaged by the quake. Oh, the Sonam and maybe that something that's not too many Bigler aware of. It was really just the shorefront that was that was smashed and rightly so interested at great attention matched by the phenomena that is and then random buildings. But sometimes really huge buildings were brought crashing down by the quite so those people that still have their homes doing what I can to help others. Trying to get on with things, but it's very hot in a city where the hasn't made our communication deciding to say huge mountains of trash piling up on the streets. And you know, it's going to really be some time before you get any any real sense of normal. And can I ask was it wasn't that long ago we were speaking to you about the quake seen loam book. How is the response if it from Indonesian authorities different this time instead of wasting? Well, they seem to be much more aware of what needed. I think Lombok was a little bit of a lesson. It wasn't as big a disaster, but there was a lot of criticism of the president poll is his response to Lombo because he refused to accept international. I and you know, we return about a month off to the the big quickly, and people were still really struggling. And you know a lot of people with flicks about why he didn't accept nationalized well, have accepted this. Time, but it's been very slow. And in fact, there is this process that goes on where the government who wants to fully fifteen before like start deploying, I and resources tower appease and you lose a few crucial days doing that rather than just having that. This is a big disaster we need to send everything we've got and just been working out the details like saying, you know, it has been just so hard to get anything in Iraq because the airport was closed for Diana off. All the roads were blocked, and you know the ports destroy there was there was really no way to get into those first few from hilly and the like, and I were kind of in short supply here. So you can give them some sympathy that the Indonesian government for that. But again, president Toco coming into some criticism and looking at those logistical challenges in terms of the journalism, what challenges have you come across in Tim's of using the technology to. Stories, what using your mobile phone at the moment, but that pain, reliable, for example, it's been awful. That's been one of the biggest challenges and big stresses because we're here to do a job and you know, there's not a lot of wind us being here if we can't get the message out, and that's how it was in in many ways for the first couple of days. So we were really restricted to occasional phone calls. You couldn't rely on them. The signal were just come in at various times for for the few minutes or an hour at various points of the Diane use that time to make the phone calls you needed to make to file anything could true those means. But we're also using satellite phones to contact Sydney when we needed to and began, which is essentially a little mini backpacker uplinked to a satellite to send out a television pictures. But it's very slow and it's also very, very us. We don't have an. Unlimited budget either. So you know, you're restricted to certain number of minutes day that you can use technology and, and you have to make it all work in that window. And it's a story that's obviously making a global headlines David. Is there a sense of cameraderie between journalists working on the ground there regardless of defective, working for different meteorite. Let's absolutely all sort of normal hardcore. Competition goes in many ways out that we know and you would give us, for example, out journey from the village of pulsa through the mountains to do. We actually went in convoy with nine all international media. And the reason for that is that we were hearing that cars were being stopped enrolled in lucid and all the rest through the mountains. So we decided to go together and in that way, if if anyone broke down ropes and we'd be able to help out, we also had we actually intonation police. Who we had managed to secure to come on the tune with us. He was armed and told them civil that drive as well armed as well. So all of this kind of working together scenario like sure that all of us could get in and get the message out to their respective country, Indonesia correspondent David Lipson speaking to me from the markets in policy in United States allegations against supreme court nominee Brit, Kevin, ah, have reignited debate about six, you assault and women speaking up about years old incidents of misconduct the Senate committee testament, he given by Brit Kevin and Christine Blasi. Ford attracted a Super Bowl sized audience in the tens of millions and has coupon the national conversation if a since. But the matter of who's telling the truth remains hotly debated and as the gap in a deeply divided nation, Washington correspondent Zoe. Daniel reports few periods of reporting in America have made me feel. No more deeply said than the events of the last couple of weeks. The allegations have been confronting the impact on the accuser and the accused as being a mints but more broadly, the deep divide between people in this wonderful but precariously balanced country has been horribly stuck. Partisanship is a given here. Political collaboration is rare. The media is compartmentalized into Russian, lift debate is vicious. In this case, it's degenerated into a rice to victory rather than a quest for truth. I believed he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help when I did Brett put his hand over my mouth, stopped me from yelling. This is what terrified me the most. And this had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me this whole two week f. Effort has been a calculated, an orchestrated political, hit, fueled with a parent, pent up anger about President Trump and the two thousand sixteen election that emotional testimony from both Christian Blasi food and bread.

Orphee challenging to side a least militant groups have discouraged the potential for mega tourism, boom, but one of the most glaring and pernicious economic did whites here is corruption. On a recent trip to the outskirts of Jakarta. For story about farming, we came across a big new grandstand in the middle of field. It looked somewhat place because the only path to it was a disused almost undrivable dirt track on closer inspection. It was totally bizarre because the grandstand looked over get this. Absolutely nothing. I don't just mean no goal posts or line markings on a pitch. I mean, no pitch at all. There wasn't even a flat piece of ground, just lumps of earth and all their aggression channels overgrown with weeds. A few laughing teenagers were sitting up in the stand, perhaps wagging school to use it for the only thing it was good for these days. Watching the grass grow despite its freshly of pint, the grandstand had already fallen victim to damage from vandals and graffiti another year or two. And it would be close to unusable as a journalist, I must admit a failure when it comes to investigating who was resp-. Sensible and whether they gained financially out of this grandstand just don't have the time to look into everything. I say he, but what took me aback was the casual acceptance that the locals had to the grandstand ought to just be some politician or party that needed to raise some funds or his told that have got one of their own construction companies to build it with taxpayer funds and skimmed off the prophet. No one I spoke to seemed to upset by it. It was just another unfortunate element of everyday life in you see and hear about corruption everywhere. He, whether it's expats debating the right price for bribing Jakarta traffic cop or the recent muse story about the Milan city council in East Java with forty one out of forty, five counselors when implicated in a bribery case with so many locked up that the council was unlikely to achieve a Corum, the government institution responsible for waiting out corruption in this target. Rich environment is the key. EP k the corruption radicalization commission, and it's done some brave and impressive work since it was established in the early two, thousands barely a week goes by when the KP k. isn't in the media for busting some low level politician public servant, and I've caught some big fish to in an address to the Jakarta, Foreign Correspondents Club recently Indonesia's most famous corruption-buster at the KP k. novel bus Weeden didn't his words go pleaded on this year, has your ready? No. He said corruption in Indonesia is not a secret. It's quite massive. It's pervasive. It is quite prevalent everywhere across the country. He explained the efforts made to fight corruption going back decades. And the reason they've largely failed political intervention at the problem remains the same. He says, intervention recurring again and again, but at this time, the intervention interventionist become more substantial and conducted in a more professional way. Novel best Weeden knows more than anyone. The danger of speaking so plainly while investigating a major embezzlement case in April last year, he was walking home from morning praise when two men on motorbikes through hydrochloric acid in his face burning the side from his left eye after ten months of surgeries and treatments. He returned to work as a corruption BUSTER at the KP k. in February this year, more determined than ever to shine a light in dark corners after hours. He's also investigating the very acid attack that left him partially blind because he claims. It should have been sold or ready. Again, he suspects intervention one mile and says there autumns of evidence that were eliminated. They were CCTV records that were not used a witnesses who were intimidated frighteningly. He says the cases of intimidation of KP k. officials at the public is aware of just the tip of the iceberg. He cited bombs attempted murders and kidnappings that have never been disclosed as election season heats out p tackling. Corruption will no doubt be a promise made by each of the many political parties running candidates. But even before the campaign propagates underway, there is caused for despair. The supreme court has just overruled KP k. regulation that would have banned x. corruption convicts from running for office. The general elections commission the KP use is around forty fomer. Corruption convicts are on the ballot papers for legislative seats in the house of. Representatives the regional legislative council and the regional representatives council that Yukata post even published a handy graphic. So you could compare and contrast which party was running the most ex-convict candidates for the record Arinda the party of presidential challenger propose Bianco topped the list with five while president Joko Widodo his party PDIP had none, but it gets worse. The election commission says it had previously disqualified around one hundred sixty other candidates because of their criminal records in graft cases, the supreme court's ruling Macy all of them back on the ballot paper, two hundred crooks in all convicted of corruption running for office as a last resort. The commission is considering putting marks on the ballot papers to indicate which candidates were corrupt in the past. I'm thinking an image of a little pair of handcuffs would do the trick. So how does Indonesia compared to the rest of the world on corruption. Likud into last year's corruption perceptions index compiled by Transparency, International. Indonesia actually does okay by world standards better than Vietnam, Philippines and Thailand, much better than Russia Ukraine and Mexico, and why better than Iraq Cambodia and in last place Somalia ranked from best to worst that is least to most corrupt. Indonesia came in at ninety six out of one hundred eighty countries. New Zealand was number one. Astrology was seen as the thirteenth cleanest nation in Indonesia. It's nice to know there are people like novel best Weeden, willing to put his life and his eyesight on the line to push his country further up those rankings. But everyday Indonesians could do a lot more starting by refusing to vote for any candidate with a picture of handcuffs next to their name. This is David Lipson in Jakarta for correspondence report.

"This is an ABC podcast. Hello, and welcome to correspondents report. I'm Nick grim. In today's program, Indonesia, car spun. David Lipson gets a grandstand view of the nation's corruption problems and national indigenous affairs correspondent Bridget Brennan stint in the US, provides a new perspective on how disadvantaged communities are helping themselves. They're does reports coming up, but we'll go straightaway tonight to our. I report filed by new Europe correspondent Linton Besser has been settling into his London digs, and it's been a busy few weeks since he hit the ground there with a real life. Spy drama taking center stage in the UK turns out the intrigue and drama of those events conveyed him back to his first experience of the city within the pages of a book and sure enough. It's a real page Turner. The ring of footsteps down a, coupled alley, the fog rolling up of the teams and unassuming man in a grey overcoat moving off his park bench in Battisti, but leaving a rolled up newspaper behind him. This is the London is I venture to a labyrinth of grimy allies, opulent government offices and drab curtained safehouses. It was a London fashioned from the pages of John Carro. If one tells the truth, what is Sean sooner or later to be found out that's la- carry quoting Oscar Wilde and reading from a delicate truth. One of his thirty five books, short stories and plays la- Carey is of course just his pin name. He was born David John more Cornwall in nineteen thirty one and was forced to adopt the namely CARA when he began to publish his writing because in his day job, he was a spy for the British secret intelligence service. They tell me at a seasoned member of the service that, right. He says accusing the it is carefully nurtured. Glaswegian accent after a head to toe inspection that seems to confirm his worst fears. I moved to London only a few weeks ago as one of the ABC's Europe correspondence, but it was really John Kerry who I transported me here decades ago from Regent's park to Hempstead heath. He carried me in the back of government town cars and rattling black cabs to and from clandestine meetings. So now I'm here, I've decided to retrace the steps of his most loved spies and bureaucrats and blowhard ministers of the crown. All right, here's my question. If you had any direct experience of secret intelligence work, you. Absolutely. It won't says there is another you who is less personal direct in what sense with that, be minister cloak and dagger stuff. What you think in most of the Carolina vols the center of power in this secret cloak and dagger world was dubbed the circus. So I went out this week to try to find it. Woke up from list squid Jude station. I'm come to Cambridge circus and I'm in front of a building which is number nineteen Charing Cross road. And this appears to me to be exactly the kind of building John. I described where he plies his fictional British intelligence service one, two, three, four, five. It's a six story. Red brick building. It's got does glorious white sash windows, and there's a Union Jack fluttering from one window and part of me wishes, of course that this was the at least once upon a time where secrets were exchanged in spidery offices, but it never was. And now it never can be. Of course, it's been sullied forever in my mind. Now across the bottom, there's a tapestry restaurant. A cute looking musical instrument shop the office at which you can buy tickets to some of the musical theater in London, and worst of all underneath the building, there's a brand new McDonald's restaurant Lacaille fashion to city

Now enrolling nationwide visit kitty academy dot com for locations and to learn more a six point, nine magnitude earthquake struck the Indonesian resort island of Lombok yesterday it killed about one hundred people. Initially, there were fears of a possible to NAMI. There have also been intense aftershocks. David Lipson covers in Asia for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. And he spoke with me from Lombok. A difficult die. We started at the air force which is sort of the south and in the of their, we saw many walking wounded and other tourists just disparately try to get off the island. We started weeding out why the west coast of Lombok and the further north, we went closest to the epicenter of this powerful earthquake, the mobile destruction we discovered. I was on the island of Lombok last year, and I remember very hilly terrain and roads hugging the edge of the coast with small hotels or larger ones that are being built. What does it look like as you try to drive through it now? Are we talking about landslides cracks in the road trees in the pathway wh what does the image look the road that waste show was pretty glued. There is certainly a a lot of rocks on the side of the road. The trees are tied. I seem to have held up, but it's mostly the man made structures that are a very big problem. And. By the time you get sort of an hour north of mushroom, there is no building. There's no structure that is untouched. They they range from athlete destroyed to lodge cracks, broken glass, but absolutely every building is damaged. As far as we could say. The locals are huddled together in whatever shelters that can find. Some of them are under large ethic, top hole and others huddled in whatever remaining structures have survived. And interestingly, it's a very small structures the the kind of touched roof, ambush structures that that have been okay, it's it's the Wixom mortar buildings that have come crashing down. So what's the greatest risk right now? Do people need clean food, fuel? What's the most urgent pressing need? The locals that we spoke to were saying that they needed. Water, they needed food. They needed clothing too scared to go back to their homes, but the situation in regards to supplies isn't yet disperse. I'd have to say the big dangerous seem cues aftershocks and and just the general dangers that come with with rubble in law and the like it was just a year ago that volcano was threatening the general part of Indonesia. Is this an area that is accustomed to and prepared for earthquakes and natural disasters of this sort or to this really take people by surprise with quite a regular occurrence stuff. This was a big one, and it said shops the locals here, and also the fact that it comes just a week after another very large earthquake, the locals that we spoke to eighth or the end of it was a week ago. They did not expect to see such a large quite good that we've. Sore here in the last twenty four hours and being to have it accompanied by the Sonam e warning really just sent many people over the edge. David Lipson is in Asia correspondent for ABC Australia.
