"director general" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters

"They expected to show that the. Us is closing in on one million illegal immigrant apprehensions in twenty twenty one. So this data is expected next week but the washington examiner reported yesterday. The number of illegal alien apprehensions in the united states. Mexico climbed in june bringing these close to one million illegal immigrant encounters nearly one hundred ninety thousand illegal immigrants in june. That's a four hundred and fifty percent explosion over last june so if these numbers hold and they are expected to that means the sea. bp we'll have encountered nearly one million illegal immigrants in just six months and because of the biden administration has shown no interest in changing immigration policies. We could be on track to see even more than that. Does the biden administration care at all about what is going on here voter block. Ob fast it's made our life in fighting trafficking in same you just quoted a number four hundred percent from just think of all the so that means that the taxation on the healthcare system is going to be up four hundred percents right health and human services. This is insane. No they don't care by design. This is what he wants. A harris was supposed to investigate the root causes. Then figure out what to do. We really haven't seen any progress there. Like i said before he goes to show that they talk themselves into a corner. So i think is less about the policy per se and more about the fact that will you try to incentivize a bunch of people to make that trip that otherwise would not have and you were not prepared for it. I think it was something that was sexy to say on the campaign trail maybe to get votes but then a lot of people were in bowling. Say okay well. This person is in an office anymore. I can make the trip. They're going to allow me to do whatever it is and they. The system obviously cannot house they can. This is why they're flying people all over the all over the country and throughout texas because they simply don't have enough of let's say facilities in order to house them because of the fact that so many people have been emboldened to make the trip in the first place. That's the root cause incentivized to do it and that's the problem until they address that instead of talking around it until they address that in this oh forever. It doesn't even matter what because the other presidents picked up the narrative and ran with it and and and look the word on the street is go. They're not gonna stop you. I mean i just had a conversation with people in poland four days ago and they go if you wanna go to the us. Just go through mexico. It's common. They coming from over one hundred countries around the world right now again. This put it in perspective. A million people illegally crossing the border illegally. They're not leaving they're so here. We're not deporting people. Here that is the equivalent of the total population of the state of montana. You're talking in six months. We may reach two and a half three million by december win. We're not going to say enough is enough. I'm this is me saying. Abbott stood up. Buddy you gotta do something. Shut the border down. We're in republic. Texas is a republic maybe to go read our constitution just for a second and go shut the border down in challenged biden. Right in harris investigate. What women can investigate when in front out of our home can't investigate a thing. Come on man. She couldn't even find the border. She she was forty miles short. I mean come on well. All we're talking about incentivizing people. This is a really sad story so newark city sex workers. This is just running rampant in new york city because they are basically fostering and open-air prostitution market because the law enforcement there has become so lax about it. In fact this was bizarre to me. There is enough business going on in the middle of the night that the ways app the shows you know. Gps where there are traffic backups. And things like that. It's detecting traffic jams in east new york brooklyn because so many cars are stopped to talk to these sex workers because law enforcement is doing virtually nothing about it so it's incentivizing these and these traffickers to continue to have these women working because they aren't being arrested. The warrants are all being forgiven really disturbing In two thousand eighteen brooklyn saw combined thirty six arrests which were related in some way to prostitution figure dipped in two thousand eighteen to twenty six and now there were only two such arrests that year In june of this year hillary at the stroke of midnight thousand nineteen pre covert at the stroke of midnight. Go look what the blasios did go. Look what cuomo dick they released. Twelve hundred convicted and arrested pedophile onto the streets of new york at the stroke of midnight. If you were in jail in prison for abusing a child they released you into the street. Hear me today. Kamla harris ran on this. She wants to and will legalize prostitution in off fifty states. Federally this. you will see this coming okay. And it's always gonna come from either new york or crazy man on the west coast. Okay newsom either one of these two here we go again. It's it's in front of us. And now i ask. All the new yorkers we have some sense of value right. You go to vote for these guys again because this is what you get. No we need this coming. We need this was coming in january. One thousand twenty really sad. We'll only have just a brief moment. But i do wanna talk to you about twenty five thousand troops for deployed to crack down on the deadly riots in south africa so those troops have finally been deployed to help handle the violent rioting. You've got family friends living there. Can you give any information from there i did. I did service there. I know the military is a joke at the moment. You deploying troops who don't have training and by the way at the moment. Would teaching police officers in south african police departments what language. That's right mandarin. Chinese china has coming and ransacked that place. You're looking at a president. Former president zuma who was indicted. Forty times misty's court appeal almost a trillion dollars from the government himself. Exported money at the gupta family have corruption out the wazoo and the african national communist party. They call them congress now. He's out in sydell pause at the president's in these two guys are at war in the same party. Zuma rose again because half the party follows. Amy said i'm taking the presidency back. So ramaphosa said great buddy. It's time to put you in jail. Twenty days ago. He puts him in jail. So now you've got black on black crime like you cannot believe you're talking about forty million people in the streets going to war at the moment and a nonexistent police. Departments are yes. My family are there and they're self securing. I told you before the show. They're doing some things they making. Sure that but it's anarchy. And i got a point straight back to china because the people who are fighting in the streets zuma the corrupt individual who is bed with china to be back in power. So yeah it's a nightmare. It's it's watch alleged schaefer wednesday. We're doing a special on this video. You'll never see anywhere else real information and we'll see what happens. When a country south africa swings the pendulum all the way and embraces communism in the communist chinese port. Yes definitely check that out and we have to go to break but we're going to end today on a high note that don't go anywhere.

"Don't. We don't usually talk about era zona on this podcast but it's It sounds very interesting to me. And i really want to share what you've been doing with my listeners. So let me get to my First question would have been active in politics finance business israel advocacy name. A few of the hats. You've worn how all of that experience lead you to be. The founding director general of the arizona israel trade and investment office will of all. I just want to say thanks for having me on and more importantly i've been a fan of what you've been doing and in a way It's very similar in in many respects. Would you've been doing is building bridges between The united states and even beyond and israel maybe through taxes but beyond taxes. It's about relationships and people and you've been creating those connections For decades and this is very similar The viability and the future of our state in israel is going to be very much dependent upon term. i call economic zionism. Which almost the next wave of what's critical. Which is ensuring that. The state of israel and our economy has the sustainability and capacities and relationships with with partners and allies and friends around the world. And that's how we're going to ensure that israel's economic viability economic capacity is shared. And so that's why it's it's really important to build these kind of relationships if anything. The pandemic has shown us that when people can't get on a plane and they can't travel they can't make their own relationships having these kind of almost ambassadors or or relationship builders between entities and states is critical but the idea is is all the credit goes to the governor of arizona whose Who really turn the state around. Many people i hadn't heard of arizona as a place to do business they thought of arizona just like people hadn't heard of israel as a place to do business. They thought it was. The you know the the holy land and a great place of of spiritual significance but most people if you would ask them in the seventies and eighties wind up said israel's the place to do business but this country turned around the same thing happened in arizona. Thanks to governor ducey which is in a way he refers to the state of arizona as the startup state and israel the startup nation. So the idea that there are two states who share an understanding of the importance of of innovation and entrepreneurship It's really a natural natural relationship. So he he really wanted to set up this trade office and there's only one other country in the world where arizona has a trade office which is mexico which is its largest trading partner. And so the idea to build a bridge between the state of arizona in the state of israel His with these state with with the assistance. Of course of sandra watson. Who's the ceo of the arizona commerce authority who's the leading economic development engine. And so there's been. Arizona has has emerged as one of the tech centers And that's starting to hit the wires everywhere. And if you look if you just do a quick google.

Habima to Be Owned by Tel Aviv Municipality Following Financial Crisis

"Come to promised cast brought to you on t. v. One the voice of the city that this week announced that it is taking ownership of the national theatre habima and in so doing taking on one hundred million shekels in debt that habima has run up over the past years and in doing all this bringing to a happy conclusion a crisis that we first became aware of a year and a half ago in november twenty nineteen when a man named core case safron sued demanding that the company liquidated its assets and use the proceeds to pay the four million. It owed him for telemarketing services provided to habima by his company. Power dialing at the time the press made saffron out to be a grinch like figure shutting down the world's oldest hebrew theatre for something as unexhausted money filthy lucre. But the fact is you have to do a lot of power dialing. Run up a tab of four million shekels and it's like the old saying goes don't the cold call if you ain't got the windfall. It's the saying. I've heard a lot of people say that anyway. During the hearing it came out that the national theatre was much worse debt than anyone knew so much that that it was like an iceberg and the four million telemarketing chuckles. Were only the small little point. You see above the waterline. Which debt of course only got lots worse during the pandemic and of course the national government has an approved a budget since march twenty eighteen. Meaning that it would be complicated. And maybe even impossible for the treasury and ministry of culture in jerusalem to bail out the theater even if they were of a mind to do it and finally tel aviv mayor room the stepped up and negotiated a deal whereby the theater would become a municipal corporation like the art museum and the land of israel museum in the cinematheque and the camera theater.

It's just a few clicks. I have to say the product is just beautiful. Which is something. I haven't thought i'd say a financial software. You have to check it out and you can do that at digits. Don't come but that's quite enough for me. I'm very excited to hand over to quentin clark. Managing director general capitalist. You have now arrived at your destination quentin. I'm so happy to be doing this when they have before i had. So many great things from joe cutler from shoshee from brenton camille from hamilton. To thank you so much for joining me. Say thanks for having me. Harry feels like a privilege to be in such good company. You thought you climbed onto filming. But i do want to kick off with a little bit on you so tell me. How did you make your way into the world of venture. And how did you come to be. Md jps day. Yeah that's a good question. And i think it's an important question relative to how i got to journal catalyst as well in specific but i'm a longtime operator twenty plus years building software building businesses building teams etc and i was at microsoft and microsoft before sasha was a little insular like we're up there in the woods and seattle and we didn't really kinda get down to the valley very much when i moved here in two thousand fourteen friends that i knew people that have moved down. Here said you really should meet some venture. Capitalists like you should understand that part of the world. Just become the ceo of sap. And i'm like make sense. And i had friends set up meetings meetings number one and number. Two reid hoffman. And montage a kid and i sit down for breakfast with read and i'm like so. What does it do and he looks. He's like you are new here. Aren't you started chuckled ripe. But this was a great job because everyone took the call from. The ceo of sap is able to network. And i was able to learn. And when i left sap as always been a lot of time with people and a lot of time on things. I was interested in right. So i was able to kind of operate like an investor might spend time with including court show and catalyst looked at deals went to monday partner meetings helpless and board work dismay major investing so at some point i started to realize that i think i wanna do this professionally right. The nature of the scale the impact the diversity of the work the breadth of the people. You get to work with. It's just like really appealing. But i was not really ready so lucky to have so many successful people in venture like bring along. Show-me mentor me. Coach me along really fortunate. But i knew i wasn't really ready so by then drew house and i had gotten talking and to make that long story short. I joined him as he's cto for the last two and a half years before finally joint venture in january goshi. I mean there's so many things that i do have to unpack there and some of them on on the schedule so like fuck it. I'll just awesome anyway so she. She told me that that was incredible. War stories from the multiple different amazing companies. That you worked out from microsoft. Sap to dropbox when you think your favorite wall story. I'm just intrigued. Was the one that stands out the most to you in terms of the war story. Remember i mean look. Microsoft was a master class in everything building products building strategy building. A business building organizations leading managing. There's a lot of stuff that it stands out to me. Probably the stories that people find the most entertaining are the ones that evolved bill. Bill gates famously. Had a little bit of drive and impatience.

There is that it's people it's all about people and it's always about people at the end of the like you have no ability to win long-term unless you have the right people around you and over and over again in my career microsoft. I was fortunate to have these great mentors and these managers who helped teach me some skill in terms of building teams and leading people and recognizing that every challenge that you have at the end the day get solved.

"Program that already. Yes people take shelter in the cyclone shelters. That is what I have seen from the news. So among the people in very basic Shacks are about a million Hindu refugees who fled the ethnically driven massacres in Myanmar few years ago. And they've been living in this giant refugee camp Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh. What do you know about their situation? Do they have enough. Space to relocate will be list impacted area because it is like you to make landfall to the Western southwest that is in Indiana and border area so coastal area of Cox and Chittagong. I think that it will be affected. So the Rohingya people who are in the ten. I think they'd be impacted so much will be some thunderstorms rainfall. Something like that. What is usual during this time? I've read that across Bangladesh. Some people are hesitant to evacuate. Why do you think that is always in our country? All countries also what? I have seen that. The people don't like to go to the shelter sometimes and many reasons for this and the current is a new at each and it is a new and the pink that sensory not be maintained properly debt that may also among them. This government has requested that the people to use mats and increase the number of shelters piloting some social distance among the people. I just learned today that about forty percent of global storm surges hit Bangladesh. In fact some of the deadliest cyclones of hip long edition the past half-century. As you say now there's corona virus how prepared you think. Bangaldesh really is for the effects of the storm. The people are now than before so this is my thinking that the people will be going to the shelter and also take precautions in this case. Well we are very glad to hear. The precautions are being taken. Shumur Andrea car is a retired director of Bangladesh Meteorological Department. He's been speaking with us from Bangladesh's capital Dhaka Shumur render. Thank you very much. Thank you really as cyclone on pond barrels toward Bangaladeshi in India. There's new evidence this week. Proving that hurricanes and cyclones have gotten more intense over the past for decades. The world's environment correspondent Carolyn. Bieler is here to explain this new link between hurricanes and our warming world. Hey Caroline Hey Marco so we've definitely talked before about the link between hurricanes and climate change and when we did I would say something like hurricanes are expected to grow more intense as the world warms. That's because physics dictates and computer. Modeling also shows that as we add heat to our oceans. An air we're adding more potential energy to storm system so more energy that can turn into higher winds But this week for the first time scientists have been able to actually look back and say that as our world has warmed these hurricanes typhoons or cyclones depending on where you are in the world have already gotten more intense just so how much longer are we talking here so this new study which was published this week. The proceedings of the National Academy of Science showed that every decade for the past four decades basically the likelihood of a hurricane developing into a major hurricane category three or higher has risen about eight percent per decade. So this is something models have shown for years and it makes intuitive sense with the laws of physics. Why is this now just being proved well? It's hard to study hurricanes. There aren't that many of them which makes it hard to draw these big conclusions about them and it's hard to compare storms over the decades and around the world because the way we've studied them has changed. A satellite technology has changed and we also measure them differently in different places around the world so for example in the Atlantic. We still send these hurricane hunting planes into the eyes of hurricanes to measure the wind speeds. That doesn't really happen regularly and other places so the researchers who publish this study had to come up with a way to compare hurricanes and cyclones from forty years ago was ones. That happened just a few years ago and they did that by studying. Things like cloud patterns and infrared temperature readings on satellite images in order to derive these sort of apples to apples comparisons. The world's environment correspond Caroline Bieler. Thanks very much. You're welcome. Nocco Sudan must pay billions of dollars in punitive damages to victims of two bombing attacks in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight at US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that is the ruling from the US Supreme Court this week. The attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda operatives between the two embassies. The bombings killed hundreds of people and wounded thousands of others besides the payment. The court's ruling sends a strong message to governments at sponsor terrorism as the world's Halima Kakande reports. It comes as a Sudanese government is trying to get off the US terrorism list. It was a unanimous decision the US Supreme Court ruled that Sudan must pay more than four billion dollars to hundreds of victims of to terrorist attacks on US embassies in nineteen ninety eight most of the victims were Kenyans and Tanzanians. Who had worked in the embassy's they have been fighting in the courts with the Sudanese government for Years Gabrielle. Maryanne is one of the lawyers representing them. He says Sudan has not paid a single cent so far. Despite previous court rulings attack itself sets off a lifetime of other problems and other stuff rank. You know that they're all connected really. Sudan wants to get off the US list of state sponsors of terrorism. The State Department put the country on the list in nineteen ninety three and now many Sudanese say. Us sanctions tied to that listing or choking the economy Cameron Hudson is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council he also advised the Bush administration on Sudan policy. I think that she has to put these cases behind them once and for all if the requirement is that they have to pay then then that's the requirement that many in Sudan say that the country doesn't have the money to pay billions of dollars in compensation to victims. The government is saddled with large debts. Prime Minister Abdellah. Hamdani is the head of the new civilian lead. Sudanese government he spoke about the terrorism listing during a visit to Washington in December this issue of bidding on so many processes not to mention the debt investment both also opening the country the US State Department says it's working with Sudan to figure out a way to meet these obligations. Here's Assistant Secretary for African affairs. Tibor nausea in January. There are some thorny issues involved with have to be overcome we want accessible Sudan. We want to be partners for sedan so we are working together along the lawyers representing the victims of the embassy. Bombing say they're worried Gabrielle. Marion at tells me that the US has proposed a tiered payment system foreign nationals. Who worked at the embassies he says would receive less than ten percent of what American victims are expecting and he says that includes foreign nationals who have since become American citizens. It's going to be to discriminate against a against African Americans and Africans is gone and and pay US citizens ten million dollars and those guys either nothing or you know a couple hundred thousand State Department officials sent me an email today that said has reached a preliminary agreement with Sudan to settle. These claims that agreement been sent to Congress it would provide compensation to both US citizens and noncitizens. But it didn't say how much Cameron Hudson from the Atlantic Council says. The trump administration is trying to strike a balance between supporting New Democracy in Sudan and holding the government. They're accountable. There is a risk that Sudan will continue to keep this tied up in in courts. There's an opportunity to get some payment. Now you've waited twenty years to get anything. Any final deal on those financial claims would need to be passed in Congress for the world. I'm Halima condie seventy five years ago. The Globe was emerging from the second world. War countries came together to create a global organization that they hoped would prevent human rights atrocities from happening. Again I'm talking of course about the United Nations. This year is UN recognizes. Its seventy fifth. Year it's also evaluating how it needs to evolve at a so called People's Forum. The world's Rupa Shaw has more corona virus pandemic forced the United Nations to hold its seventy fifth anniversary people's Forum online allowing for what might have been the biggest conversation ever about the way the UN works. Some two thousand officials activists and advocates from dozens of countries attended and from the outset. One theme was clear. The UN hasn't been effective enough in getting governments to work together. Under Obama is founder of Democracy Without Borders Germany. Battle lines are shaping with some seeing an opportunity to feed nationalism xenophobia and focus on one's own country my country my government might might people and forget about the rest of the world. Several speakers pointed out that countries. With nationalist agendas were spreading disinformation on social media and marginalizing. The people who advocate for global solutions to global problems like climate change and the current pandemic song young noon is you and representative for the International Alliance for women. We are experiencing an assault on science an assault against our UN agencies like who and all processes like Paris climate accord not only has the UN struggled to corral nations to work together. It's also struggled to hold individual nations accountable for human rights abuses Amelia rays of the organization. Equa the handle. Mexico said that the U. N. Investigators who document these abuses are often ignored. The UN system is actually undermining on dismissing the recommendation of all of these very powerful human rights You entrepreneurs many argued that current structure of the UN isn't actually serving people. It's serving governments bridget. Burns is director of the women's Environment and Development Organisation in New York really the UN right now doesn't feel fit for serving the global good as opposed to serving the interests of nation states nation states. That aren't necessarily interested in protecting poor people or the environment fergus. Watt is executive director of the World Federalist Movement Canada. P Like many others suggested the UN invite more citizen engagement. Perhaps it's time that we think about ways that we can lift up the role of citizens representatives at the UN want a new system of elected citizen representatives who would take part in UN deliberations and have direct input perhaps through new technology but Silvio Gonzalvo head of the European Union delegation to the UN cautioned. There would be challenges to more citizen involvement. He said that some countries have opposed their citizens being admitted to UN conferences. In the past we'd be siging for keeping these conferences open to civil society. Osama member states do not agree with that they want to be able to object. We want objection poses to be as transparent as possible the UN General Assembly will consider that change and others that might increase that is an involvement over the next month. It's expected to ratify a seventy fifth anniversary declaration in September setting out a shared vision for a common future for the world. I'm Rupa Shenoy schools in South Korea.

"Slash freakonomics. Roberto Vado director, general of the World Trade Organization was appointed to the post in two thousand thirteen when the trade waters were considerably less choppy than they are today. So you were from Brazil and you studied electrical engineering before becoming a diplomat. I'd like to just very quickly here those three factors, Brazilian engineering and being a career diplomat how they inform your role as director general of the WTO Brazilian. Well, the good thing about being a Brazilian is that it gives me a very diverse perspective. Brazil has is a big economy. It's a big country with several ethnicities, very diverse cultural background, and it has aspect of a developed nation, very sophisticated industry, but also has important aspects of of developing countries, social. Challenges, and that gives me this different perspective engineer. I was always good with numbers, and I think it was natural for me to become an engineer. It was until I met my wife and she decided to get into the diplomatic career. And at that point in time I had to decide, you know, what would I do an engineer merit to a diplomat was going to be pretty challenging, especially when she was posted abroad. So I thought, you know what? Let's let's work for the family. So I took the the exams and I passed the exams and I joined the diplomatic career. I think that was a love star in its own rights. Can you give me a quick example of an engineering lake solution to trade or economic problem? So when I'm in a meeting or something like that, tried to understand the basic motivations in and then figure out a way. To make those motivations were together. And that's something I think that engineers do try to get very complex situations and problems try to reduce them to their mental constitutive part and figure out a way to make them work. Personal chemistry is very important as well. Even between the gauche eaters. I know some people think that everything you need to know your learning kindergarten. And I think that's that's quite accurate. But I, I found out that you're forever learning how to re relate to people how to take into account it, diverse personalities, cultures, objectives. So as long as the world still has independent nations and it seems that'll be the case released another few decades. We're not becoming one big global nation. It strikes me that there's an inherent friction around trade. In which every country has to strike a balance between protectionism and globalism. So I'm curious whether you agree or disagree with this notion and however you answer what's to be done about that. This stink tion that exists even today with regard to trade, it always existed countries that do trade and that have a cooperative relationship with other partners. They essentially gained from that. But it is also a reality that when you trade some sectors in the domestic economy will lose many gain. Many are better off with the with the trading relationship, but that some lose in the sense that they're not competitive enough. Sometimes the factories close in particular sector and you cannot ignore that. I think what you see today is something different. From this very traditional, very historic tension. Today, we are seeing a transformation of the economic structure of the global economy with producing things differently. We're producing things faster. We don't require as much human input as we did before, and this is increasing. Now. Clearly even for governments in football of Titians. It is easier to blame, you know, the foreign for these problems which are happening inside their own economies. It's easier to blame the imports for the loss of jobs when they are. They have a role of course, but they're minor in this structural change. And I think if we don't realize that and if we don't try to find a solution for this will be hurting much more than help it. Okay. So you've just described? I would argue beautifully and succinctly a big problem. That of course, a lot of economists and some others have described, but you're right, that's not the political rhetoric. So it's easy to think of what's the wrong medicine. How involved is the WTO in trying to discover and administer the right medicine? I think the WTO is already at least trying to help governments and public opinion to understand the situation and reach the right diagnosis. If we get the wrong diagnoses, you get definitely the wrong medicine. The important thing to understand is that whatever medicine we choose, it's not going to work overnight. There is no quick fix for this..
