Refugee Resettlement Numbers At an All Time Low

"Resettlement numbers are at record. Low this year the refugee agency. Unhcr said on wednesday with only fifteen thousand four hundred twenty five people resettled in the first nine months of two thousand twenty compared with more than four times that in two thousand nineteen this is one of the lowest levels of resettlement in almost two decades and blow for the ability to save lives and protect those most at risk said unhcr's assistant high commissioner for protection. Gillian triggs syrians affected by nearly a decade of fighting. Make up forty one percent of all those resettled. This year and sixteen percent are from the democratic republic of the congo drc other nationalities you have been given shelter in a third country include iraqis burmese and afghans. Unhcr said that three and ten violence or torture and nearly two in ten are women and girls at risk although the covid nineteen crisis has delayed the movement of asylum seekers to a third country. Unhcr said that the fifty thousand global quota for the whole year was disappointingly. Low in the first place.

DR Congo announces end of latest Ebola epidemic

"The latest ebola outbreak in the democratic republic of the congo. Drc has been declared over nearly six months after the first cases of infection were reported in northwestern ecuador province key to this success was the vaccination of more than forty thousand people at high risk of falling sick from the frequently fatal hemorrhagic disease the world health organization. Who said on wednesday. The un agency added that the lessons learned from having to keep the antiviral drug super cold temperatures would be helpful in bringing a covid nineteen vaccine to africa since one of the corona virus vaccine candidates that has completed testing requires similar deep-freeze handling to keep it from spoiling the. Ds's eleventh recorded. Ebola episode which was first declared in the dock area of ecuador province in june claimed fifty five lives the who also hailed government and local partners overcame significant logistical challenges in tracking cases of infection and providing treatment to communities scattered across dense rainforests as well as crowded urban areas. This great achievement shows that together we can overcome any health challenge said tedros adhanom ghebreyesus. The director general of the world health organization in a tweet

China Treats People Deemed Vulnerable With Experimental Coronavirus Vaccine

"China, hundreds of thousands of people have already gotten shots of the vaccine is being developed Their NPR China correspondents Emily Fang and John Ruit, take a look at why China's pressing ahead on what's at stake. On a chilly morning earlier this November. Hundreds of people line up and wait for their names to be called summer from the state owned China Railway Group are waiting to get their second shot of an experimental Corona virus vaccine produced by Sina Farm. China's biggest state on vaccine maker. We'll pay you as a China railway construction worker about to be sent abroad for a project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, qualifying him for a vaccine. Don't worry. There is no problem at all. Lots of our colleagues have a shot very early as early as July. They had no problems whatsoever for cool access to a Corona virus vaccine, albeit one without regulatory approval and which is still undergoing the last phase of human trials. Is a perk that comes with a state job. Your company is giving a guarantee of safety in exchange for sending you abroad after all, if you don't have your health Who cares how much money you earn of the hundreds of thousands now inoculated 56,000 vaccinated people have already gone abroad, but deploying unproven vaccines carries huge risks. For one, China's covert 19 vaccines target the disease. The vaccination prevents bad outcomes from infection, but it may not prevent infection itself. That's Jerome Kim, director general of the International Vaccine Institute in Seoul, South Korea, and that could mean that a person could still transmit the virus after they've been vaccinated. The worry is that vaccinations will give people who've had them a sense of invincibility. And that could actually help spread the virus. There may also be unexpected reactions to the unproven vaccines or late complications. China justifies the experimental vaccines for what it calls emergency use. Shot into the arms of people deemed vulnerable to Cove it such as frontline medical workers and critical service providers at home. China has four experimental vaccines now going through the last phase of human trials sign a farm in sign of AC are two of the major contenders and they make the vaccines being used on an emergency basis. Tinge away a director. China's CDC, speaking in November, said this was a necessary measure Number woman she won't call it. The decision to approve emergency use came after rounds and rounds of strict debate in evaluation after relatives show regulations were fulfilled What Jim did not specify how the emergency vaccines are being distributed. At the vaccination site in Beijing, NPR met a wide range of people who were lining up to get a job. They included dozens of state employees such as white collar bureaucrats and office workers, with no plans to travel abroad. And even a Peking duck cook at a state owned restaurant chain, a Peking duck cook. It's inoculations like these that have some observers concerned. Indonesian researches molecular virology at Hong Kong University. There is no emergency in China because there are basically zero confirmed cases over many months already in China, rolling out vaccines without all the data is a gamble for China. Already a string of quality scandals over the years has people inside the country and out skittish about made in China vaccines. If something goes wrong with these vaccines, it would be a PR disaster. Again Hong Kong University's Jin If they choose to do this, shock her and they ruin the reputation that will just make things worse. And no one there to use a Chinese waxing anymore.

More than 50 women in DRC allege abuse by Ebola aid workers

"REPORTER ONIS AOL Kerry. Restart today here in. Africa more than fifty women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have accused international aid workers of sexual abuse. The women reported multiple incidents of abuse that happened during the twenty eighteen ebola crisis. He told me to come to his hotel and Phil illegal if. We had heard splint thinks about this four winless. The men worked for organizations like the world, Health Organization and Doctors Without Borders five women said, their abusers worked for the Christian nonprofit World Vision the women said multiple men had coerced them into intimate acts in exchange for a job or fire them. When they refused some reported, the abuse happened as recently as March. The World Health Organization promised a full investigation and serious consequences for abusers. The allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse by aid workers are deeply heartache and heartbreaking. World Vision also launched an investigation into the allegations. Next we go to. Asia. Plantations in Malaysia and Indonesia a facing accusations of human rights abuses that's according to a recent report by US investigators. The report found that Malaysian palm oil plantations use forced child labour abused their workers and house them in inhumane living conditions. The industry has been built on a backbone of modern slavery and it's being built on the backbone of these companies being our to violate human rights norms, left right and centre with no consequence. As a result US costume officials said they will block all palm oil products from one of Malaysia's largest producers. US manufacturers use palm oil in more than half of all packaged consumable products everything from cosmetics to animal feed. Indonesia and Malaysia of the world two largest producers. Tequila. Next to the Middle East. The United States has threatened to close its embassy in Iraq following a string of attacks on American troops in recent weeks, number militias. Groups have targeted Baghdad's Green Zone. That's where the Iraqi government and several embassies are based a rocket attack killed six women and children last week. The next day, a roadside bomb targeted a US led convoy south of the capital Secretary of State Mike pompeo warned that the trump administration may close the embassy. If Iraq doesn't take steps to halt the attacks last week, Iraq's foreign minister said if the United States shuts down its embassy other nations might follow. He also said the move might encourage extremists to increase tax. Addict. And finally we end today in. Euro. A massive storm, hit the border regions between France and Italy over the weekend. It brought record rainfall and heavy floods that swept away roads. Two people died and nine are missing. One hundred homes were damaged or destroyed officials.

WHO to probe 'sexual exploitation' by aid workers in DR Congo

"Take you back to those allegations. We were talking about earlier in the programme of sexual abuse by eight workers in the Democratic Republic of Congo Investigation by the new humanitarian news agency on the Thompson Reuters Foundation has collected interviews for more than 50 women. Who say they had to have sex to get work with relief agencies that during the recent Ebola outbreak we had earlier from two women who said it was doctors from the W Wait Show World Health Organization who demanded Six from them. That organization has responded, saying it is outraged by the allegations in the report, and we'll investigate. Let's talk to our correspondent in Geneva, which is where the W H O has its headquarters. Emergent folks. So imagine shocking. We heard the testimony of these women earlier. What is Thie is saying Well, so moved very, very quickly to respond to this investigative report and basically had to because you know the issue off sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation among the humanitarian community. We know Was in the headlines and we thought was being very seriously addressed. Years ago. Now we have allegations again. And so the W H o respondents said We are outraged. We will have an immediate investigation threatening immediate dismissal for anyone. Proven to be involved and saying that the betrayal of people in the communities we serve is reprehensible. We do not tolerate such behavior. So they moved quickly. Nevertheless, I think it's obviously in the middle of a pandemic where the W H O is in the headlines all the time. It is absolutely not the kind of news story the W H would like to be dealing with right now.

AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial, shares slip on rollout doubts

"No Work? No pay no food coronavirus lockdowns have forced many people all over the world to wonder where their next meal's will come from according to Matthew True. Scott Oxfam International's head of Humanitarian Policy About one hundred and twenty one million people have been pushed to the edge of starvation. This year not of course is across the main hotspots you would expect Yemen Democratic Republic of Congo of Gunston Venezuela, south. Sudan we're also seeing hunger coming up in otherwise middle income or developing countries. India South Africa Brazil CETERA. Look at a situation in the world where you have about sixty sixty, one percent working in the informal economy when that denied that daily income forced to stay at home they no longer get that income and that forces them into some of the negative coping strategies and that's what makes this crisis so unique. People. Couldn't travel to work which meant they couldn't make money and they couldn't buy food but this isn't just a short term problem. Is it Yeah and it has sort of long term impacts where, for instance, if you take people who are living day to day selling milk, if they can't sell milk for a few days, it gets point whether then have to do something to have food and income then have to sell their means of income. So selling the cow which had been providing them and then conquered back to generate income and same happens instead of urban areas where people who had been, for instance, taxi drivers after. So long of not being able to take fares and give taxi rights eventually then have to start selling off assets to cope and that's where we're really. Seeing potential long-term structural breakdown, and as you say, this is a problem that existed before the pandemic. So how do we tackle it this time around does it require new solutions? It does with sort of proposing three solutions. The I of course is that we need to increase humanitarian aid drastically the U. N. Global Humanitarian Appeal has called for about ten point, three billion dollars in humanitarian aid. But only about twenty, four percent of that is funded. So less than a quarter, the second thing that we can do is cancelled some of the debt that could free up up to a trillion dollars, and then of course, the final thing is. Exactly, as you say, we do need to change how system works. We need to build a more fair and more robust food system. We need to build a system that's ready to deal with the climate shocks that's able to produce sustainable food.

Portland Protests: Local Leaders Urging Feds to Leave

"In Oregon Governor Kate Brown and other officials are calling for the removal of federal law enforcement officers from the city of Portland. The Trump Administration deployed those forces, saying they are there to protect federal property in the city amid ongoing protests. But this week, officials from across the city and state and their congressional representatives have raised serious objections to their tactics. After camouflaged federal agents went into the streets with tear gas and tactical gear. Arresting protesters and taking some away in unmarked vans without the protesters have said explanation among those critical of the federal deployment in Portland, Oregon, Senator Jeff Merkley and he is with us now from Portland. Senator Merkley Thank you so much for speaking with us today. You're welcome, Michelle. Good to be with you. Well, you and three other members of Congress wrote last night to Attorney General William Barr and the acting Homeland Security secretary, Chad Wolf calling for these agents to be removed from Portland. Tell us briefly why you issued that calling. Have you gotten a response yet? This is an extraordinary circumstance. The customs and border protection and the marshals are deploying people to the streets of Portland. They're doing so at least the CBP forces, customs and border protection. They are marked just with a generic police. You have no idea who they who they represent. And then they're outside beyond the boundaries of the federal buildings, grabbing people on the streets, throwing them into unmarked vans, not disclosing even at that point, what agency they represent. This is the type Of unmarked paramilitary presence that you would expect in a dictatorship, not in a Democratic republic. It's absolutely terrifying to people. It's unacceptable. It has to end.

So, let's start off with the the really broad question of what is make path. Path is a spatial data science. Shop we focus a lot on open source tools, and we bring our passion from various domains. To gs and we aim to build. Inclusive communities around you as tools, and specifically we have a project X. Ray spatial, which focused on roster based spatial analysis, we combine a rationalization pipeline with a set of universal functions which apply an. To Rosser data and also are named in ways that Gif professionals recognize things like surface analysis tools slow hill shade, aspect on these are the names of these tools in the s domain that people recognize. And we offer those tools As a python based library that anybody can access read the source code to and contribute to. We we take open source tools, and we help solve our clients problems by applying open source to their their specific domains. These these domains are very diverse working in areas from healthcare to environmental conservation. Finance Natural Resource Management. We know that geography and the science of of place is very important, too. Many domains and we find ourselves learning about these different domains as we apply open source geospatial tools to their challenges. We we basically bill. We love building open source, really powerful tools, and then if we have clients are like. Hey, what else can we do with these tools? Can you help us apply these really complex problems and what he help? So, how'd you guys come together as? Building this new path path. That was that was bad, wasn't it? Sorry. That's okay well. It's all good. We'll take it. So I WanNa talk about what you've been doing before and how we can. Yeah so I got involved in GSA in the mid to thousands being the S. lab manager for the Center for Sustainable, development, which is a kind of environmental science group in Central America. Working a lot with agriculture. And then moved on to work. As part of the team at the Nature Conservancy looking at site selection for projects in the red area red in this context is reduction in emissions from deforestation and I. Ever Dacian where Zeh countries that have high carbon output can find carbon credits in developing nations to incentivize them to protect vertically sensitive ecosystems, tropical forest is a great example of that, so a lot of these projects occur in in the main tropical forest areas of Brazil Democratic Republic of Congo Indonesia the top three countries for tropical forest. So using I was using DIS to help. Do Site selection to maximize dollars spent? Two or environmental protection through the conservancy We Pablo night. Live in Austin We started to connect in the music scene. Both of us are musicians songwriters. We go out and play open open mics and so that's how can Pablo and I met, but then we quickly realized that we had a lot in common apart from our music background, and over the years as we would spend time together and hard about things it just made sense to get together in work together as a 'cause. We were hitting the same problems, but Pablo represented us. More! Experience on what it is to create a company and create a culture and I represented a bit more of the technical side, and so we were good partners in kind of coming together, 'cause we represent those different areas. in filming kind of some of some of the. The rounding out the breath of our skills, really we we both. We both think we are easy to find and the other one is a really great fun. So I came out about I came out of Stanford about ten years ago, started a company So I had a lot of experience. Products Scaling a company and I. Really liked.

It's a little bit of my. Time and I love it the physical world and data to to solve problems in the s really exciting to work together and. We've been applying for some of these tools and really really interesting ways, and I'd love for brethren. Talk with it. This is a blog. A very big piece we're working on.

Coronavirus antibody testing, explained

"Antibodies. What exactly are these? And how are they different from things and people may have heard of like convalescent plasma? Yes so convalescent. Plasma is the idea that you had the disease he recovered. And you can pull the plasma out of someone that has a commissioner of antibodies. And then give that to someone else. the monoclonal idea is select the best antibodies out of that commission. Or you can make those antibodies in mice or you can make them synthetically. Monoclonal means one clone one thing. We're going to just make a bunch of it and give it to people. People typically just an antibody is a thing. Well you know more so than I scream. Store has ice cream you know there are lots of flavors. Antibodies and and some are far more effective than others and some can even cause harm. You have to be careful right and this is not like a vaccine. Where you're you're actually injecting a person with a piece of a virus or the virus killed and then the body is producing antibodies. Right so whatta vaccines doing. Is it's artificially teaching your immune system how to make an immune response including antibodies. With a vaccine you get the vaccine. Your body then knows how to make the antibodies and other immune warriors with the monoclonal antibody treatment. You have to keep getting it. You can use it either as a preventive like a vaccine or as a treatment. If you're going to use it as either you have to keep getting it because it wears off right. How do you administer monoclonal? Antibodies to a person for treatment. You have to do it. Iv IV DRIP for preventive. Where you would get it before you got the disease you can do it. As an intramuscular injection has been used to treat people for other infections or other disorders. There's a huge industry of monoclonal. Antibodies for cancer and for Autoimmune Diseases. But there are very few monoclonal antibodies that have made it to market for infectious diseases. The rarely used to of Mer for anthrax for example. Which just isn't a big problem. Right and another one that's on the market is for HIV infected. Who FAIL ALL DRUGS? And then there's one other on the market for respiratory virus for a certain subset of infants but that's it so this is something that's been done and that people have taken but it's not why lease for infection at this point not yet but we're right. On the precipice of an explosion of monoclonal antibodies for infectious diseases. Several have moved very far in clinical trials and we just had this great success story in the Democratic Republic of the Congo with Ebola where everything failed all these drug treatments failed. Convalescent plasma failed but monoclonal. Antibodies two different monoclonal antibody. Preparations worked. Well let's talk about how this is going to be applied to corona virus. Actually before that we should take a little detour to neutralizing antibodies. These seem to be the goal of lot of the research. That's going on. Can you talk a little bit about those? Yeah they're the superstars of antibodies. Basically what neutralizing? Antibodies do is when they latch onto the virus they prevent that virus from infecting a cell. In this case the virus that causes Kovic nineteen has a protein on its surface called spike. And you have a region of spike at the tip that is really and needed for the virus to get into a cell because it binds to a receptor on the cell surface that small and that small region of spike has to hit the receptor just so so the neutralizing antibodies by-in-large target that small region of Spike. You know basically. It's like taking a key. That's heading for a walk and putting chewing gum all over it. So he mentioned what an antibody that is not neutralizing monoclonal antibody. That's not neutralizing would do to prevent infection. Antibodies combined all over spike. They can also bind to the human cell when they bind to the human cell they can tell the immune system to turn on a separate arm of the immune system that brings out T. CELLS. We have a mop-up system of t-cells that can identify infected cells and clear them. And you really want these two things working in concert with each other. There are lot of approaches that you investigated in your story. Lots of researchers going down different has to try to get this treatment working. What are some of the things that they're trying to optimize about the antibodies? There are about fifty. Different efforts underway to make monoclonal start with the simplest thing. Find Somebody who's recovered and then try to pull neutralizing antibodies out of them. And then you can actually optimize their neutralizing antibodies. You can you can mess with that stock of the antibody to give it a longer half life so it lasts longer in the body. Another thing you can do. You can take the spike protein and injected into mice that have human b cells in them and they will produce antibodies. That you can then fish into the pool you've made and find the best ones that are neutralizing whom you can then modify those by making their half-life longer. Lots of fishing going on right lots of fishing going on you can also create a library of antibodies with a completely synthetic system. These are not naturally made an animal. You can then stick your fishing pole in there. I mean you. Basically stick bait into their like spike protein or just the region of the spike protein that the neutralizing antibodies attached to. That's Your Bait. That's your worm. And then the antibody jumps on that you can have two at about that. Both find the spike protein but different parts. See you kind of have the backup. In the case of one of the Abullah monoclonal antibody treatments in Congo. That worked that has three in the cocktail. There's no real limit to how many antibodies you can have. But there is a limit because of cost and manufacturing rights. There's there's one other limit. That's interesting Sarah. That's I mentioned. The spike protein has a small region on it that is where the neutralizing antibody wants to attach. That small region can only handle probably two different. Antibodies don't overlap with each other and as you mentioned there are what fifty different teams chasing this but now there's an organizing force out there. This is a consortium started near near you. Yes so the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has funded Erica Omen Sapphire here in San Diego to try and sort through all the different. Antibodies being made in help prioritize triage with one's look best. These consortium ideas make a lot of sense in practicality. They're often hard to run because not everyone's cooperative. I'M OPTIMISTIC BECAUSE COVA. Nineteen has led to more cooperation than I personally have ever seen in the scientific community that you know these are companies. That are competitive. But they're all pledging to work together so we'll see a lot of what we talked about so far as a mechanism so we know where it should bind. We know how to improve the life span of these antibodies. What about translating these ideas these experiments into the clinic? How optimistic are you? And researchers about this working in people so antiviral drugs are a big ask when it comes to respiratory diseases. We don't have a lot of them that were in fact for viral diseases in general. It's it's tough to make drugs monoclonal. Antibodies hold great promise. We know the structure of spike protein. And how it attached to human cells. We know how to make monoclonal much better than we ever have. Because the technology has improved greatly through and autoimmune diseases and we have some hints from convalescent plasma. That can work if used early enough so I think there's high hope that these monoclonal. Antibodies will prove their worth and the Ebola experience where everything failed other than the monoclonal adds to the enthusiasm I'm GonNa keep picking at this a little bit longer so you mentioned that. Ebola had three monoclonal treatment but that people are aiming more for two in treating corona virus because these are expensive. They're not necessarily easy. To produce is going to be a problem if this does prove to be a really good treatment. Yes or no of first of all in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A second MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY. That worked was a single monoclonal antibody. Okay yeah so it's not necessarily better to have a cocktail It might be better to things like resistance that could build but both of those work the triple Combo and the single against Ebola. Are THEY EXPENSIVE. They have been in the past but the cost has dropped. I've been told tenfold in the past ten years. Just as manufacturing has improved. We also are seeing a rush internationally to provide support for treatments and preventive for Cove. In nineteen and my hunch. Is that if something does work. A lot of money will pour out of wealthy countries. Will there be a problem. Getting these out equitably to poor people and they're also hard to deliver yes inevitably inevitably. It will be a problem and there's also the risk of rich people getting it. I right so I think these issues are very real the bill and Melinda Gates. Foundation's consortium is trying to address this upfront. But these are always sticky. Sarah you know back historically if we look back at what happened with pandemic flu vaccine. They're the rich countries of the world. So will will donate ten percent of our vaccines to the poorer countries. That's not the real solution to the problem. You talk about a race with vaccine so if a vaccine comes to clinics for the antibodies do. Is there any call for them? At that point so the antibodies can be used both as a preventative and as a treatment in theory. Antibodies are going to enter the clinic in June. They probably will have an easier time proving whether they work and are safe than a vaccine so in all likelihood if antibodies are effective they will prove themselves. I necessarily who knows? But that's how it looks to me today and on May first. That's how it looked. Thank you for putting the date in there. Yeah Yeah 'cause you know this is where we're living in corona virus. Dan Our everything is so accelerated. Who knows you know weird? Things happen every day. Now Yeah and it could be that we never have a vaccine

"So that's the headquarters and again well-worked visiting but not an absolute businessess itchy. And I suppose the final Kinda Ford cited like people will do at the moment at which is kind of a natural onto the volcano particularly is is the island of Chitra. It's it's a unique taking. It's kind of separated and removed from the pack itself. So all the itinerary. So far you've spent the park that would end the conference rainforest disdain you head back towards goal Megan and out down to Lake Hebrew which is one of the great lakes aches and Central Africa and power just happens historically to a small uninhabited island on lake. It's actually remains of Pharma Pharma Volcano. So if you Google is look it's actually a very strange de Kinda crescent shaped island and that's because there was a volcano here at one stage h which has since got submerged and you're actually sitting on the lip of the island is mainly used as kind of a relaxation after near near Dongo Ongo so again after hiking up all day sleeping on the top of this you come down you use just wanted shower. You want Nice bathed you want the year Wifi. So that's kind into what the united mainly offers Durr's a chance go kayaking on the does kayaks. They're just a lot of authors birdlife. So it's one of those areas where you can just kind of chill and I think maybe relaxed Ted your folks back Home Dash you've made a true to DRC in your standard is well. Let's talk about that a little bit actually before. We say that we should also mention that the whole park that you're talking about and you haven't got into everything for instance all the different animals that you can see in the park or even just the range of geography you talked about jungles. You talked about Volcanos there snowcapped. Oh Kep eeks. There's a lake. There's a lot of variety in that hundred miles or so we're talking about and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but as you said Eh. You told people you were going to go. They probably told you you're going to die absolutely to the folks under good. You're absolutely right. It's a UNESCO site. It's actually the second oldest national park in the entire world and it owes its creation to yellowstone sort of the influence there to the Americans obviously came open still and I think the first Ersan entire orange and when King Albert of Belgium went to visit the US in the early nineteen hundreds. They took him out there to see us and ensured off and that always stuck with him and debate in parodied over traveling and so a couple of years later after they came back. They Kinda win searching for her I suppose what was the equivalent in the Belgian sphere of influence where they could do something similar and they said on this rotor spectacular piece of land right on the Congolese Rwandan uganda-border and so it's the second oldest in the world and as you said it covers almost every type of Landscape landscape imaginable. So I was I've talked about now. Is What's available to current visitors booth at different stages and depending on the security. Here's the situation to park. It's actually is a loss of voter things to offer so so many listening to this in years totally would hopefully be able to actually do a proper traditional safari various park so the central sector is actually more like a savannah so you would have your traditional loins leopards elephants Buffalos hippopotamus possumus. That is dare and it is opened depending on the situation and I suppose that Indian the situation probably rounds me back to the point you made about people being slightly concerned so Friday one who is thinking going to I think it is accidentally Portnoy at Disneyland. Fortunately it are some fairly significant issues both historically and at present that you need to be aware aware of to the first in terms of if you were to Google the area is diabled epidemic is probably the first thing that's going to pop right and I I'm I'm not a doctor so I'm not going to give anyone any very specific advice on that but I suppose to just maybe give people since of how comfortable going and how much my fiancee fancy night. We're happy to to visit us. I suppose first of all it kind of goes back to distance again if you actually look at. The map doesn't look all that Farrukh. Main outbreak is is around. A place called Benny in reality dati's for most locals like being on the moon so when you're underground there's not a lot of people who will own cares. Almost I know one with old cars. Very few even have motorbikes allotted locals rely on these traditional wooden scooters Toronto bet awards on motorized voiced so people don't really travel beyond village so someone who is an operator's one hundred fifty kilometers away is is not like one hundred fifty kilometers in Europe or American absolute chance. You actually come into contact with anyone is quite remote. I suppose the second part of it was I suppose it bullet sports. It's a very high profile because it's very very serious. Illness and is very very high. Fatality rate is at the same Transmits is really by hands on contact. So it's a huge risk for families of people who are affected priests you're dealing with doctors. Nurses it's not really unlikely to affect the tourists. It's just not something that you're going to be getting involved in rated. It doesn't mean that we ought to look for places with a bullet outbreaks for your next week. Yeah absolutely so. It's something that you should APPs. Take very seriously and the do your research and and talk to the voters put again. It is is quite a long way from the power to open to tourists and it is torchwood in remission at the moment and so it seems to be that going down so actually thought also hopefully by the time lock people. Listen to this. It will actually have kind of petered out and gone away. Well and we have very good news just within the last week there was an announcement Samantha. There was a new series of drugs that seem to be effective in treating so one would hope that the mortality rate for this disease disease is going to drop because it sounds like they were having some progress with it again. Something you still take seriously. And that's one of the two issues that we've had in the one of many so then the other one that people will come across is security concerns so the parakeet says is indeed. DRC DRC country is a little bit more of a concept than a athlete folk shinning country in the traditional sense Nokia could a map. It's absolutely enormous. It's almost impossible to govern robbed capital city on the other side of the country to regions in the east and unfortunately fortunately for day most people want to be in very rich areas with nodes of minerals and gold and diamonds for this region. That has been a bit of a curse. I and it has transitioning brought conflict to the area so you have a lot of armed groups now particularly in the Nar to the park so where tourist tourist currency is. I think as a kind of rule the thome you can say the further north you go further away you go from the tourist areas debris skewered becomes butcher is absolutely a Nigga gacy of challenges in the area DASS can flare up no. The park has a the rangers who are completely weekly in charge of the travel and transportation within the park so you will have an Arab discourse at any time when you're traveling between occasions they also are linked linked in with the army and they are monitoring the situation so they have very very talented inexperienced people in the area who quite into shutdown tourism. If there is a concern having said all that as you've said about her a lot of people out there you might just not want to go to somewhere where this is a conversation in the first instance so for people who are interested in who are willing to take the risk is with us this is spectacular. And you get to see it again. With which reduced tourist numbers. There's but to be realistic are reasons for that. I just need to go and we should say just in terms of getting a sense for how big ah the country is for those who are coming from the states if you picture the size of Texas which is our largest state that is not Alaska Alaska largest state in the lower forty eight. We're talking about a country that is about more than three times larger than that. And so. That's why if there are problems in one part part of Congo of DRC specifically than it might still be safe to go to a different part and so we just need to do research and look into it as you do that. And it's GonNa be a changing situation. It is. They haven't had specifically something called a war in a few years had some conflicts Including some conflicts in Goma. That happened across the border as well so something to look at as you. If you're listening to the show and it's been a few years I I would definitely do even more research because it will change over time and honestly we don't know what directional change but this did one of the reasons I wanted to do. This particular episode is we are talking about a pretty spectacular spot and hopefully we're talking about his spectacular spot that will stabilize and get some good tourism revenue and support the economy there of the people of the DRC absolutely excellent anything else. We want to cover before we get a couple of our wrap up questions I know. I think that's mainly is I think just to mention to people. A lot of people might not travel all the way from the states just to do. DRC So it's worth mentioning kind of tags intuition whistle again. The airline to fly directly into Goma is Ethiopian Airlines. So if you're visiting Ethiopia it is actually an option to fly directly into Goma and and you can arrange with the power to collect you from their alternative. The awful lot of people do it with an actual more traditional safari so eater in Kenya. Nya would be quite accommodating place because you can slice from Nairobi to Kigali in Rwanda and travel. It's only a tree drive to the bar and you can be with Indepao within kind of four or five hours a touching down so that will be the traditional add ons for people who are doing maybe a two week or a bigger trip to Africa good too and we have another show on on the deer see and we have chosen. Uganda Rwanda Tanzania and Kenya. I don't know if we have one one I'm Barundi. which is the only other neighbor near there that you can answer after this question for me? You're standing in the prettiest spot in the park in the national park were standing. What are you looking at? I think it would. I have to be the creator of near Dongo now to maybe make expect more interesting answer do supposedly and I haven't tested all all noticed. I'd have to do a lot more traveling. But supposedly near Congo has the most spectacular view from any tight. Its seat on art. Which I can't say I am an absolute expert on that but it it's a pretty spectacular view suggests down from the hosts maybe five or six meters down from the crazies age? You you have Detroit which faces out back across away from the volcano out over the landscape over the park down on the city of Goma and Tiezzi? There's no doors so you quite spectacular view. Not for everyone. Maybe definitely one for Instagram at some stage well there was an answer I wasn't expecting and maybe we've already answered this one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Virga. National National Park is an interesting one adult maybe to mix it up. I suppose we're we're on Cheek Era Island we write both asked you to a Bo comes out and you that the island and the manager wanted to introduce us to the island and said we have this May of these authors in these birds at an at the end of it just kind of almost as a troll way comment meant as we have a single blue monkey and you don't know quite how to react to the idea this monkey and how he might have got there but it was one of those Daybreak four to the island and released pretty quickly than monkeys.

I don't usually sing because he's a Republican. But that's that again he is a libertarian. And now you know, I was hoping that by now three days after his initial Twitter rant that some other. Principled. Republicans would join the cause so far that hasn't had. In fact, the freedom caucus even voted to censure him. Unbelievable, these people these people by people, I mean, the Republicans who are putting their party over the future the survival of the country of this Democratic Republic. We'll, we'll sadly. I think they're writing their own legacies. I think just in a mosh will probably go down in history, as perhaps a brave martyr, because the already the Republicans of announced their primary ING him. And the rumor is that, that Ammash will run for president as a libertarian. Bring it on. I say, bring it on by the way, somebody in the chat room, just as I was beginning to read, the, the Ammash Twitter, stream asked, why is cure Ston cinema meeting with Bill bar? That's a really good question, and it's one that her office will not answer. Let me refresh your memories. If you've listened to this show for any amount of time you've heard Howie Klein rant about Kirstin cinema, and how she was just the worst member of the house of representatives, and Chucky Schumer plucked out of the bunch and said, you're going. To be our senatorial candidate in Arizona. The worst of the worst. And again, Kirstin cinemas meeting with Bill bar, but she will not tell us why. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Okay. Let's see someone just asked laugh. He's not here today. Gotta laugh is usually our special guest every Tuesday. Lafayette old, dear friend of mine, she's got about a zillion followers on Twitter, and we normally we just we shoot the shit about the news and we mind, a lot of material from Lafayette Twitter stream because she she basically lives on Twitter. She's got twin sons who are grown men now. They're adults. They're young adults. And one of them had to have surgery yesterday. So Laffy is at the hospital with her sons here. I just got a message from her. She said, kylie's doing great tired and sore, but otherwise, fine yet. So that's good news from Laffy, the sad news is, she won't be here today, but she'll be back in her stead. I have great guest coming up in fact, he's someone who's been on the show before you know him you love him. His name's David daily. He's the author of the book called rat fucked. Yes, that's, that's the actual name, a lot of shows can't say it rat fucked, while your vote doesn't count. And he is basically an expert in gerrymandering and actually last week. Dave had a couple of pieces published at the new Republic. And at the Los Angeles Times, kind of drawing a parallel between these horrific new antiabortion laws that are being passed throughout the south and partisan gerrymandering, and he said, one, one of them lead right to the other. So we'll talk with Dave daily in about ten minutes or so, before we get there, you know, I like like many, I think, in the country.

Do it's an hour's flight from Kinshasa to the east. If you think deal seeing the size of western Europe. Then get into Bandundu is just a halt. Sara Lee is the health editor at the guardian. This was the attraction of the story for me people think of the Congo as a disastrous place place of violence and war with it bowler taking off we don't hear about anything. Good anything positive. She traveled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa to meet this, man. Through. You. This is Dr Victor candy, and he's a magnificent, man. He's really quite revered by all those people I met who were actually working with leaping sickness. Sara thoughts a candy in a hospital in the town of mushy in the Bandundu region. They referred to him as the father of sleeping sickness. Sometimes it's the godfather sleeping sickness. He was the first director ever of the national sleeping sickness program. India see? What what is sleeping sickness sleeping sicknesses parasitical disease? So it's passed from one human being to another by the bite of the Tezzi fly the parasite enters the bloodstream, and the first stage is really unremarkable, it's headaches and fevers those sorts of things it could be absolutely anything. And then actually it might even go away and not go way, but disappear completely for two or three years. And then suddenly this person can become aggressive. He might start to shout just act out a carrot to completely. And so people think it's a soldier form of insanity that set in and then after that they start sleep a lot an awful lot. And then gradually from sleeping this loop into a coma and then invariably without treatment. They die. At the beginning of the century. In the Diaz e that were around thirty thousand cases of people with sleeping sickness Dr Condie. Now runs a government program that tests for the disease teams of screeners head out into often very remote areas with a mobile screening unit sometimes packed up onto the back of a Mehta bike. There are a lot of villages. That's not actually map at the moment. And the effort of screening people has led to finding ten thousand villages that nobody knew was there ten thousand. Yeah. And some of these villages actually move to escape from sleeping sickness? So if number of people were ill and redeeming, they would often take the village somewhere else in order to get away from solo. So what? So what sort of people? Did you meet Sarah who were living with sleeping sickness dealing with it? And there's a man called Alfred who is living with his mother. He was a fisherman. Here's a Fishman by trade. And I really that anybody much knew about it was when he was becoming very aggressive and shouting lot. He was beating up his mother who was in the house. I met his mother who said I ran away from him because he was hitting me and they diagnose leaping sickness, and they gave him treatment and a trial of new drug. But unfortunately, what he was there. His wife left him with one of their children his arm and leg on one side were paralyzed during the disease. So he can't work. And that means he's not bringing money and his wife and child will not come back until he can actually provide for them. Sleeping sickness has been destroying lives in killing people in the DRC and surrounding countries for centuries with little hope for survival. But there was a point whether disease a lot of attention. Diaz was colonized by the Belgians. I think every effort was made to develop drugs for sleeping sickness while the colonial regimes were existence..

"The Democratic Republic of Congo DRC is to hold elections in December. This is a two year lapse since president Joseph Kabila's mandate expired, the country is in the midst of a constitutional crisis this widespread insecurity in an ongoing humanitarian catastrophe optimists say the polls could possibly mean the first democratic transfer of power in the country. But if there's no legitimacy to the vote there could be further destabilization, which is looking increasingly likely freedom from torture has just published evidence of brutal and rampant torture by authorities in the DRC as punishment for engaging in legal, political and human rights activity. Well, I'm joined by Steve crucial who is the policy and advocacy director at freedom from torture on the line. He's one of the people behind the report a tool to silence torture to crush dissent, which is to be launched at Chatham house tonight. Steve what is in your report? And what does it mean? What it is. I think deeply shocking findings even for those who follow many of the terrible things. It'd be shopping in the Democratic Republic of Congo in post years. What was seeing is torture on democ scale? We're focusing here note so much on the conflict zones in the Eastwick clearly has been terrible terrible violence over the years environment continuing, but in contrast in that region, and above all is as you said reductions, it's punishment. She's not torture, it it simply tortures form of sadism. If you like basically, and is coaching one of the one of the survive, torture, survivors were south doing it. As a tool in order to silence, others torture. As a tool to silence we've seen. Gang. What we've seen rate of the rolling. Movin ninety percent of the women who were held raked wouldn't two thirds of the men were right. We see gang. We see range of other tortures, which is really if you like a full move encouraged mitchen sadism with I think, what's notably clearly absolute impunity, the sense of these people in authority the gods or the others who are holding these people in arbitrate attention feeling that they will never be punished for something absolutely needs to change who's been targeted are the victims politicians walks, particularly notable bound this is it on these people who ban put the head about the he's clearly intended to send a signal. So these are not launch scale is not the leaders. These people who become involved in some kind of civic engagement or human rights engagement or work. For women's rights. And sometimes for example, just simply putting on a T shirt, which carries the name of political opposition party. That is a reason to get picked up one phrase that was used again, and again, the torture survivors quotas, so routine torture in the tension says is sentenced perpetrators were two foot fission taking that tea or teaching them morning coffee. This is just a routine which all of them were facing. Now, we know that the DRC has suffered since the eighteen hundreds. I mean, king Leopold aside there's been huge conflict conflict there for years if we could just have a very brief recap of what's been going on. I mean, we know that the opposition. Now has has just a rejected a unity deal don's. Exactly. Right. As you say this goes back into the history of Congo goes Bank into colonial times, the most brutal of any of the colonial rose anywhere in Africa or the world, really. Terrible unto under Belgian rule and kind of the person's bones. We've seen a war in the east when millions of died over the years.

"A reasonable access to the ballot box. But we also have a civic duty to make sure that the safeguards are in place to make sure that to guarantee a legitimate vote is not negated by in an illegitimate or illegal vote. And so the the fact that we are Astings state states are the guardians of the ballot boxes and elections and our in our system because we don't have a federally control system. We have a state by state manage election system is so states have a responsibility to make sure that voters are who they claim to be and they are indeed eligible voters to cast their ballots that would protect and that does protect intake. Equity of the ballot box this strong resistance to something as simple as a voter ID is almost mind-numbing. Are you just think about the things that we have to show a photo adea for in this country? You know, anything from taking out a library book to good getting on our airplane. It is goodness. Route chain that people show that they are indeed who they claimed to to be. And so when you talk about the most precious element of our Democratic Republic, and that is the individual citizens, right devote and duty to make sure that they individually, and we collectively protect integrity of our elections. Just come to see how ridiculous the the the opposition is when it comes to some of these safeguards, and I I really. Take this assumption. I go right to the point with most Americans. Do you believe that banks show wait until they're robbed before they safeguard your money? When there is there. There are logical steps to to take that would safeguard your funds will your your your right to vote is as precious. There's your pressure funds because you're right to vote establishes the context in which America has become the most adverse the most prosperous Democratic Republic in all of human history. Can you you mentioned that voting is up to the states election is elections are run by the states. And as your report points out in two thousand thirteen North Carolina passed a set of laws legislation called the voter information and verification act to try to reduce voter fraud, including a photo ID requirement in that law was then struck down by the fourth circuit court of appeals, very extreme. Case of judicial activism where in fact, the legislators in black robes overrode the safeguards that the guardians of the election system and North Carolina had to staff list. I think that that has to be challenged because it is an overreach by the fourth circuit. And. It comes down to this. In this election in twenty eighteen of there are four or five or maybe a few more states where elections are going to be decided by a razor thin margin. And I use the example, I go back in history. So that people can be a little bit emotionally detached from it back. I take Ohio and the Jimmy Carter Ford race in seventy and seventy six of Carter won Ohio by just shy of. Seven seven thousand seven thousand votes, excuse me, just shy of fourteen. Out of fourteen thousand votes that was less than about one vote per precinct. In a state of Ohio. So if you had to change seven thousand votes by a that's less than one voter precinct. You would have had president Gerald Ford instead of Jimmy Carter. So one foe pro Prec can make a difference in the direction of the nation. Take. Can you don't I'm from Minnesota. Right. This is the state where Al Franken got electric to the Senate by three hundred twelve votes. There is no question. There is no doubt that there were more legal votes cast for norm Coleman, then for Al Franken. But once those illegal votes have been recorded by the voting machines. You can't take them back as a result of Al Franken's election. He was the sixtieth vote for ObamaCare. This is. That's that's a more even more recent more, dramatic example of just how important every. The vote is and how how important it is that we protect against one illegal vote being as that will change the care the outcome of elections. And that means it it it changes the policy direction. Of a state of a region or country. And that's that's important for us to keep in mind. And and you look, you know, we have people now are that many people in the caravan on its own it's slow March to to our southern border have a half constitutional rights that and that's a mind numbing argument. How can the constitutional rights behind Dern illegally entered the United States for welfare benefits? That's that's a constitutional right? I never found in their hours that so when you start to think about the nature of elections in our country. You start to think about the importance of e every vote counts, particularly and elections that are decided by raising fan margin. You begin to see the importance of fighting back against this nonsense. Because if you don't we will have voters without borders, and we will have a nation state with poorest borders, and that will have consequences in are very communities and the safety of our families. We're talking with Ken Blackwell, Ken this report that your group just put out has got some some very good. And frankly, rather frightening illustrations of of the loopholes of of the lack of voter security in North Carolina. Now that the first circuit court of appeals has overturned the the voter security law that the legislature passed in one of those areas is non citizen voting and. I'm looking at your report. You're just it's stunning to me tell our listeners how it is in North Carolina. Look, I if in fact, you don't have to show a voter registration. If in fact, you can get into the state, and you can have a state sponsor, driver's license. You know for a so-called non-citizens. Yeah. And and and if if if you happen to Chicago any put it this way, Chicago is not the only jurisdiction with the history of the people voting. The the the the reality is that is so easy to game the system if in fact the system has no safeguards, and that's what the fourth circuit has has has done. And and it really does have consequences across the state. So it's not just the American civil rights union. It is the Heritage Foundation. There is now a a Bank of data and resources that exposure. The the the creeping rise in voter fraud in this country. And it doesn't have to be, you know, in the tens of millions of illegal voters, it it can it can make a difference in swing states where the margins come down to three hundred sixty votes three thousand or thirteen thousand and so in North Carolina as your report says if a non-citizen just shows up at the polls, there's no mechanism to to check that. And and potentially prevent him from Boeing all they have to do is get the voter registration form Sanday registration and just check the box. That says I'm a US citizen as they do that they can vote. I mean, there is no control whatsoever. No, no, control. And and again, I I, you know, as a former secretary of state. Eight. As a as a person who understands the importance of voting on election day are voting within the prescribed period where you can cash about it. It is so important that we take the time to make sure that these nine expensive safeguards are put in place. There's no tremendous financial burden. On citizens who are eligible to vote to get an idea the poorest of poor can get free. Right, right. It's unbelievable. There's a reason why one of our major political parties does everything it can to block all measures that would provide for voter integrity. And I think we can all pretty well figure out. What that reason is Ken Blackwell. Thank you very much for being on the program. We gotta run to a break and will return with your calls. Eight five five forty Laura. The Laura Ingraham show.

"Information five seventy eight AM and ninety six point three eight to Ben Shapiro show. So we now have a real gas lighting attempts in effects Democrats openly, stating that mob politics are okay. And the media suggesting that Democrats have said, no such thing. And there's no such thing as a democratic mob. Take for example, Don lemon. So Don lemon last night. He had on GOP commentator named Alice Stewart, and she was talking about President Trump who's ripping on the Democrats is an angry left-wing mob. And here is how it went down. So Levin said so so Alice Stewart said that calling these folks a mob was actually accurate pointing to people who are banging on the doors of the supreme court and people who have wrath Senator Cruz and Heidi Cruz as well as yelling at Jeff flake, and Susan Collins and elevators and lemon said. But that doesn't mean people don't get to object. That's your right as an American to object. It's covered in the first amendment. It's like the first one and then Louis again chimed in and argued that anti-castro protesters engaged in my behavior, which they did they went into the actual Cavanaugh Senate hearing room, and they screened until they were removed. They shouted until they were moved that's called mob behavior. Okay. So lemon says no that's an odd behavior. It's people who are upset and they're angry with the way the country is going. Those two things are not mutually exclusive mobs typically are angry and upset with the way country is going the reason the media are trying to cover for all this is because the media are beginning to realize that shouting Republicans is not actually the best strategy for winning. And so they're simply going to try to convince you that the person who is shouting in your ear is not real like Harvey the bunny giant bunny? Just imaginary. It exists only in your imagination. It's not a real thing. So the media doing their best to try and tamp down he perception of the public that Trump is actually correct about all of this. And the Republicans are right when they said Mitch McConnell, of course, is pushing this forward. Mitch McConnell says listen this behavior, and this this Hillary Clinton comment about civility being out of bounce. This is unhinged stuff from the Democrats. And that of course is correct. No peace until they get their way. More of these unhinged tactics. Apparently, this is the left's rallying cry. But fortunately, the American people know that they've fact free politics. Oh, hey, fear and intimidation or not how we actually govern. At our Democratic Republic. Well, this is right. I mean, the Democrats acting like pure Al children is not going to help them. And that's why the media trying to convince you that's not actually what's going on rand Paul got himself in a little bit of Twitter water yesterday for comments that he made that are exactly correct. He said that political assassinations could rise in the United States somebody could be killed. Thanks to all of this bio rhetoric on the part of folks like Hillary Clinton Nelson. I'm somebody go back and listen who condemned this sort of aggressive rhetoric from President Trump in two thousand sixteen in two thousand sixteen the president of the United States when he was just a candidate when he was going to rallies and saying something like punch somebody, and I'll pay your legal bills when he was doing that sort of stuff. I said that's bad. That's ugly. He shouldn't be doing it. Well, Democrats are the ones doing it today. And it's just as bad. It's just as bad, and they're being more explicit about it too. I mean when Hillary Clinton says civility is not required with anybody on the other side of the aisle. It's pretty damn explicit. Rand Paul says, this sort of stuff is going to get somebody killed it doesn't mean that Hillary Clinton is going to get somebody killed, but the rise in temperature is likely to reach a boiling point at some point. Here ran says that she gets all sort of flat all sorts of flat for it. I feel that there's going to be an assassination. I really worry that someone is going to be killed. And that those who are ratcheting up to the conversation knows who are actually getting their face. We have to realize that they bear some responsibility of this elevates to watch. Now. People are saying, well, what about Trump? What about Trump? Okay. Let's talk about ran for a second. Since ran is one who's making the comment. Rand Paul had six of his ribs broken by a neighbor who allegedly didn't like his politics and literally just tackled him on his property requiring months and months of recovery. Rand Paul also happened to be one of the people present at the congressional baseball game where a bunch of congress people were shot at and Steve Scalise was nearly murdered. So I think that ran actually does have a certain amount of credibility on this particular issue. The direction the country is going is really ugly direction. And it's got to be stopped coming up if the solution to what ails us his gratitude. Maybe we ought to take a.
