Many great people see many great musical under the types of entertainment. And it's been a real privilege to be involved in a place. Sometimes i was your first memory of it actually.

EU places export controls on coronavirus vaccines
"Has criticized the European Union's announcement that it will bring in export controls on vaccines produced within the block. It again warned that vaccine nationalism would only prolong the pandemic. Senior wh o official, Dr Mike Ryan urged those protecting their own supplies to think of health workers around the world who may be in more need. They're right down the end of the queue right now. They're looking up to the top of the Cube on the figure at the top of the Q are fighting about where they're on the kids. I mean, that's what it looks like. Fighting over the cake when they don't even have access to the crumbs. You introduced the measure amid around with vaccine manufacturers over delivery shortfalls, But it was forced to backtrack on plans to override part of the Brexit agreement and imposed restrictions on the export of vaccines across the UK border on the island of violent after a diplomatic row. Kevin Connolly is in Brussels. The European Commission's readiness to impose border controls to restrict any flow of vaccines into Northern Ireland flew in the face of years of Brexit diplomacy, in which it claimed repeatedly that avoiding just such a hard border in Ireland was one of its key diplomatic objectives. Extraordinarily, It seems the threat to invoke legal powers in the Northern Ireland Protocol was taken without consulting the Irish government. There was talk of deep unhappiness in Dublin. It seems clear that the European Commission's anger and frustration at falling behind in the race to vaccinated populations prompted the sudden sharp escalation in what has been referred to as a vaccine war.

Are Probiotics Ready for Practice?
"My first faculty position was a minority turkeys was introduced a college in dublin and was a gastroenterologist. They're not keeling was a very good friend of mine. He persuaded me that. The brain got access was relevant in relation to psychiatric illness at that time. Dopey really considered microbes within the got to be relevant in relation to the brain got access. And when i came back to cork seventeen or eighty years ago. A group of micro biologist and gastrologist decided that they're going to set up a new at brain got institute which we set up so i was involved in setting it up and at that stage. People thought michael might be important in relation to the brand. It wasn't at all clear so we begun researching the area. And i've been working in that area now for the past seventeen eighteen years. I'm a psychiatrist. And i decided at the very beginning that if we were going to engage in this research that we are going to publish the best journals out there because it's an emerging discipline. There's a certain degree of skepticism. About self our initial publications would have been been john peony s to the nineteen nineties. The general sense i got was that the brain is protected from the rest of the body by a tight web called the blood brain barrier other than stroke and a crane disorders and a few infections. There wasn't much that got in their back then. Psychopharmacology was all about synoptic festivals and neurotransmitters. But things have changed one landmark that stands out to me was two thousand thirteen. That was when dr trolls raisins group at emory published. The first randomized controlled trial of a medication that treats depression without even crossing the blood brain barrier. How did it work with saudi getting into the brain. The thought was that it treated depression. By reducing inflammation in the body. The medication was to the crisis factor antagonised inflexible and worked for treatment resistant depression but only in those who had elevated markers of inflammation like crp. You're probably not going to be using inflexible matt in everyday practice because it has to be given. Iv among other things but in this journal we featured a few articles lately on how to treat depression by reducing inflammation and dr dina's work on probiotics and the mind gut connection is one of them. But first let's hear from dr dean about what the gut microbiome is. The god microbiome is essentially the collection of micro organisms within the intestine. Now the majority of them are in the large in stein and the beat assed volume is carried bacteria. Now there are obviously viruses and fungi. There there are a variety of microbes. But we've largely focused on bacteria the golden microbial over navarine adult like you are. I is at least a kilo gram and weight. So it's it's quite a large wage. It's it's pretty much the same way. As the human brain really traditionally. We've always taken the view that their commencement. They don't do anything any harm there. There we feed them because we feed these bacteria as well but it really is only one in the last fifteen years that people have begun to realize that in fact there really is a synergistic relationship between these microbes and dos and was we might feed them that they in turn produce chemicals that our brain and other organs in our body absolutely choir how these gut bacteria influence the brain when i think they influence the brand in a variety of ways that be one of our database of boll is big areas of research over. The years is trying to anything. There are lots of unknown questions but the narva security very important majority. It's a long meandering nerve. It sends signals from brain. To got it sends signals from the brain we showed in taper in peony s their own twelve years ago. That sir microbes could only communicate with the brain. Is the vegas nerve was intact. So we did a gossipy in an animal. The microbe couldn't communicate with the brain. So the vegas nerve has very important author important.
People on FBI terrorist watchlist came to DC on day of Capitol riots
"Of the washington post this afternoon. The headline dozens of people on fbi terrorist watchlist came to dc the day of capital riot quote the majority of the watch individuals in washington that day are suspected wide supremacists who past conduct so alarmed investigators that their names had been previously entered into the national terrorist screening database. A massive set of names flagged as potential security risks. Now this is. This is not the no fly list that keeps people from boarding airplanes for one thing. This is a larger database of people People who are on are automatically barred from any public or commercial spaces but all that said it is still a sort of shocking revelation. Why exactly did they put people on watch lists. What's a watch list four. If it's not going to trigger any sort of alarm dozens of people who are on that same list all for the same reason all travel to convene at the same place at the same time. If that doesn't trigger the watch lists utility what does reporter devlin barrett and his colleagues at the post report tonight that current and former law enforcement officials are now arguing that the presence of so many watch listed individuals in one place without more robust security measures to protect the public is another example of the intelligence failures preceding last week's fatal assault that sent lawmakers running for their lives. Joining us. now is dublin. Bertie covers national security for the post. He's one of the reporters who broke the story earlier today. I should also note. That devlin had another big scoop earlier this week. Detailing an internal f. b. i. Report issued the day before the attack on the capital that warned that extremists were preparing to travel to dc to commit violence. And what they called. War mr barrot. I know it's an incredibly busy time given that this is your beat. Thanks very much for taking time to talk to us. Thanks for having me. There's been controversy. Over the years. In real civil liberties concerns and lots of glitches and worries about various. Watch lists that come to learn about as as americans particularly since nine eleven. What's this list that all of these dozens of people were on who ended up at the capitol attack the this list. The tst is shared primarily between the fbi and the department of homeland security. And it's it's very important understanding. This is sort of in. Some ways a throwback issue to post nine eleven era and a lot of people thought wash watchlist watchlists would protect them from everything and prevent Threats from from ever coming to fruition wireless our tool their information gathering tool and there are an analysis tool They're not perfect by any stretch. And you have to do a fair bit of analysis and understanding. And they're still not going to predict the future for you. I'll ever was. I think interesting about this this situation and the what happened with these people on this wash last is that it's part of a larger conversation going on inside the fbi some other federal agencies about whether or not or could and should have been done or january's well do the fbi and homeland security and whatever other relevant agencies may see this as their remit. Did they believe that they had set up systems. That would raise the red flag that would sound an alarm that would signal something that needed more attention from them. If multiple flagged extremists traveled from all over the country to the same place at the same time. didn't they think they had a system. That would alert them to that as a problem and it turns out those those alarms go off or did they know that. They didn't have capacity to monitor extremists. In that way well think two things happened. One it worked. In some instances we know that the f. b. i. Went knocked on doors before the event and to certain extremists that they have been sort of keeping tabs on interested in and gently suggested. You know it's not a good idea for you to go to washing. So we know it. Worked in some instances but it's not full truth. It's not her. And what we're told is a number of folks who are of concern to the government or happen of concern to the government traveled to this anyway. That's obviously a concern. I think there's going to be a number of discussions going forward about you. Know are we not combining this information fast enough. Are we not contemplating the degree of danger. That some of these people pose because look there's hundreds and thousands of people on this particular list. It is not practical to track them all all the time. Equipment so the important question for investigators. Which ones do we care. Most about that. I think is part of the conversation where they may they may ultimately decided to have to recalibrate that answer right and when they move in aggregate how can our systems be set up to let us know so that we don't have to be watching each one of them individually but when we see lots of them all move in the same direction at once. That tells us something. It's a it's a. it's a systems problem. But it's a fascinating. look at. how law enforcement approaches devlin barrett national security reporter for the washington post. Thank you for helping us understand this reporting. I appreciate it

Don't try to find a way You Know Karma through this and. Understand how are you guys done it and the and and I guess. I mean. Tennis. Just a little bit about through factions. What it does a little bit. Why did you join trip actions when you see among a DVD? And you you know you to join trip absolutely better. Yeah. So trip actions is a full travel management system from bookings expense. So you book your travel than we have travel agents that support you while you're on the road, and then we have a product called trump actions, liquid that corporate card for expenses and and managing anything on the road or even at home you know some of our companies are using it to expense office supplies, stuff like that and software I joined. Last year weather reside is one it's a massive market I think One thing when you're looking at companies to join is to look at their size of the market it's a one point, five, trillion dollars just business travel online as one point, five trillion even if we cut that in half with Cova, let's say it only comes back to half the levels in the next year. That's still an eight hundred, billion dollar market, and there's a lot of legacy players in it that haven't really innovated in a long time. They were all born before the iphone they weren't there in legacy technology and infrastructure outdated models. They're dispirit systems They're not designed around the traveler, the user, and they don't usually have very people don't love those solutions typically. So I love going to a player that's very disruptive. That's modern that was born after the IPHONE and designed around on new technology is very similar to to be born after the iphone they went after a very large forty, five, billion dollar database market that was growing to sixty billion and they're taking on a large incumbent which was. Oracle and they were bringing a whole different way of doing it and tractions doing that it's a very, it's one platform. It's just a very different model than what's out there, and so I was excited to join the company and we were growing quite fast. We added a thousand employees last year until we had to hit the brakes with covid and that definitely was a punch in the gut I, think for the entire industry and we've had to make a lot of pivots and moves in order to adjust for this environment. But we know ultimately travel will come back. Businesses are reliant on meeting in person and accelerating deals and so I'm here to help us get through this external. Event with the pandemic and build the right product and support our customers and what they need now, and then
Politician, Eleanor Rathbone
"Today we're talking about one of the first female members of the British Parliament who used her position to push for gender equal legislation. Please welcome Eleanor Rathbone Eleanor was born in London on May. Twelfth Eighteen, seventy two. From a young age, she grew up in the world of politics. Her Father William was a liberal member of parliament. And often entertained other politicians and intellectuals. In eighteen ninety, three at the age of twenty one. Eleanor. Left home to study at Somerville College Oxford. There, she studied classics and was allegedly nicknamed the philosopher by her peers. When Eleanor realized that her college refused to give degrees to female students, she took matters into her own hands. He joined a group of women called the steamboat ladies who sailed to Dublin. To get honorary degrees from Trinity College. After graduating eleanor worked alongside her father investigating the working conditions of Industrial Liverpool. After his death eleanor continued her work in the city she volunteered for the Liverpool central relief, society where she dedicated her time to helping families in poverty, improve and change their living conditions in the eighteen nineties. Eleanor became a supporter of the women's rights movement, which she saw as integral to widespread social reform. Eighteen ninety five, she was appointed secretary at the Liverpool Women's suffrage society as well as the women's Industrial Council. Eleanor didn't agree with radical tactics to promote women's suffrage and instead pushed a more moderate approach in nineteen. Oh six, the Liverpool City Council Open. It's elective positions. Two women in nineteen o nine eleanor ran and was elected as an independent candidate a position she held until nineteen, thirty five. In nineteen thirteen, she co founded the Liverpool Women Citizens Organization to promote the involvement of women in politics. When World War One broke out eleanor organized association to help wives and other dependents. She continued that work when soldiers returned home, she saw mothers were struggling to provide for families and advocated for the installment of a family wage system. This method would pay family allowances directly to mothers, helping them to support their children and simultaneously fighting against the notion that men had to be the breadwinners. In nineteen eighteen at the end of World War, one British women over the age of thirty. Got The right to vote that same year eleanor established the nineteen eighteen club the following year eleanor became president of the National Union of Women's suffrage societies. And renamed it the National Union of Societies for equal citizenship in Nineteen, twenty, two eleanor ran for British parliament. She lost that year but was elected in nineteen twenty nine as an independent member for the combined English universities. She was one of the first women to hold a position in parliament. There Eleanor continued her lifelong activism in her first speech. She criticized British colonial ISM, and it's anti-feminism. She specifically called out the inhumane practice of female genital mutilation in Kenya. As. The Great Depression loomed she campaigned for the People's rights to cheaper milk and better benefits for dependents of the unemployed. Eleanor was also one of the first politicians to warn of the danger of fascist uprisings across Europe. She spoke candidly about her disappointment in British neutrality concerning politics in Germany Spain Italy and Czechoslovakia. She joined a nonsectarian anti-nazi council to support human rights and set up a parliamentary committee that took up individual refugee cases throughout the war at one point eleanor allegedly tried to charter a ship to cross the blockade of Spain Rescue Republicans from the country. Later, in the early nineteen forties, eleanor devoted resources to get an Jewish people out of Poland.

However it was initially passed on the stipulation the allowance be paid to fathers rather than the mother she fought for. Eleanor's rage was short-lived.

"Ireland fought for its independence from the United Kingdom Between Nineteen Nineteen to nineteen twenty one in a grueling war fought with guerrilla warfare. It was the IRA which is the Irish Republican Army. They were not terrorist organization will maybe they were in the in in English? Is You know? But they fought the British army then so just think that was like right after World War One, and then you know yeah, interesting on November, twenty first one. Thousand Nine hundred twenty. It's known as bloody Sunday so I'd like the Youtube Song. Blurry Sundin. Thanks Rebecca. Definition I'm sure Bano is listening to this and he really appreciated. US, right, now yeah, right. bloody Sunday was one of the most significant events to take place during the Irish War of independence. On this date, thirty people were killed or fatally wounded. Not so much the amount of people, but how everything happened and it's both sides to. Most of the assassinations occurred within a small middle class area of the south inner city of Dublin. It started with the IRA seeking out members of an undercover British intelligence agency in Dublin, the IRA members went to a number of addresses and killed or fatally wounded sixteen men. Then the English retaliated by opening fire at a Gaelic football match in Croke Park, which killed or fatally wounded fourteen civilians and. Wounded at least sixty more. That evening to Irish Republicans Dick. McKee and Peter, clancy towns, good It's spelt differently than how you spell Peter. who had helped plan the earlier assassinations along with the third man, a civilian named conor coon. That sounds like Scottish name. On so they happen to be caught with the others they were beaten and shot dead in Dublin Castle by their captors, who claimed that they were killed during an escape attempt. In May of Nineteen, twenty, one Ireland was partitioned under British law by the Government of Ireland Act, which created Northern Ireland. Later on December Sixth Nineteen Twenty one. There was a treaty called the Anglo Irish Treaty that was signed, which gave Ireland its freedom..

"So we're back and now it's the history time. Let's do this. Let's do it so the history of Dublin Very Long, unlike most US cities, we have a really deep well of historic facts to draw from. So I'm going to kind of go through a highlight of its history, so this episode isn't like four hours long. Okay, good 'cause! You have me a little worried there uh-huh Anna's like are am. I. GonNA re novel or it's going to seem like it maybe. Dublin was actually founded by the Vikings in eight, forty one. That is new new information to me. Wow, already righty. They named it Dube Lynn two words, which means Blackpool, and that sounds like something straight out of game of thrones or Lord of the Rings. Interesting? Yeah, it was fortified with the ditch in wooden gate around it. The Danes erected an artificial hill where the man of Dublin do. Do Blonde do blinn would meet to make laws and discuss policy. Of course, the women folk weren't allowed definitely making. that was wrong already. The Vikings living conditions were very primitive, though the houses were wooden huts with thatched roof, no chimneys or glass windows. Could you imagine the bugs? Yeah and there was no heat or air conditioning. There I could imagine that right now. Hey listen for most of human history. This is how people lived yet, but not in Pats, history pets. History's always had a see attached to it well. We have a new saying now. Pat FACS pet facts that facts and that is, that is one of them. Yeah, Dublin head, blacksmiths and carpenters jewelers in make combs from bone or But they also had a relatively large wool weaving industry. Slowly the Danes were converted over to Christianity, and the first bishop of Dublin was appointed in ten twenty eight. That's that's a long time ago. Time ago, I there were many wars during the vikings rule of Dublin every time, though they recovered in May Dublin even better, Dublin grew to be the largest and most important town in Ireland. By the eleventh century, it is guest to have had a population of about four thousand people. That is a large town by those standards that day. Yeah, I suppose. That's true, I mean. I Guess Yeah Yeah I mean it doesn't seem like like here. It'd be like little rural place, but it was pretty big for them. Yeah, okay, they would trade with the English town of Chester and Bristol. In eleven sixty six MAC murrow king of Leinster was forced to leave his kingdom and flee abroad in eleven sixty nine. He enlisted the help of a norman the earl of pembroke..

Our with tips for a walking tour of Dublin with nearly two million people in Greater Dublin. Ireland's capital is by far its biggest city and it thrives with Arts Entertainment Food and fun just taking a walk through Ireland's capital. You can see and experience so much of its charm. That can know where to look and if you know where to walk. It's even better. That's why we've invited to Great Irish guides. Joe Darcy and Karen O'hare to join us in our studios for a guided stroll through Dublin. Joe and Karen thanks for being with us. Our pleasure great to be here so if you're going to take somebody on a walk through. Dublin where we just start. I think I'd probably start up. Stephen's Green which is at the south. End of Grafton Street is a pedestrianised shopping street and Stevens. Green is a beautiful manicured Eighteenth Century Park. It reminds me of when you get off the platform and suddenly. You're at hogwarts step out of the middle of this busy packed city into a beautiful manicured park actually reminds me of London. Very much so probably. That's because it was designed in a time when Dublin was actually the second city in the British Empire. Oh without question. In everything. From the the wrought iron fencing around the entire park to the style of landscape architecture inside the park is very very limited those parts in London and Joe when we think of Saint Stephen's Green. Today it has some connections with Ireland's difficult fight for independence Jordan. The nineteen sixteen religion on Easter Monday called eastern evasion and there was one. Contingent of artists rebelled swear in command of Stevens granddaughter. Job was to mind. Stephen Greene barricaded streets on prevent British reinforcements from getting into the city centre and amazingly their only experience of warfare. Because he's not. Soldiers was watching the pathway news from World War One and where everybody was digging trenches all over Belgium France so they dug trenches in Stephen's Green. Hold out but of course British army caught up to four storey buildings all around the Gresham hotel. They had a clear line of fire. Is like they're digging their own tombs. Yeah Yeah So. They retreated from their interface called the Royal College of Surgeons. Which is just when you come out with Stephen Screen through that gate around. He'll after all colleges charges and you can still see bullet marks into whole memorial to mention. Yeah Yeah Yeah let host reminded of the the blood that was last is Ireland one. It's independent that was no easy feat the more understanding of history you bring your visit to. Dublin the more. You'll enjoy your sightseeing today when I go to Saint Stephen Screen it's Of course you've got the history but it's just a festival of of youth and families in life. People are feeding the ducks in the pond. There's a little theater there. And it's and it's the kickoff point for Grafton Street Karen mentioned Grafton Street Joe when he walked down Grafton Street What are you gonNA find? You're gonNA find a multitude of small shops as well as the big retail shops. Actually strangely enough when you come down from Stevens Gray and one of the first big shops you say you left US Disneyland. So there's a store you know. This is the High Rent Street and you have the high rents treated drives out the local businesses and it brings in the what. Are you gonNA see Karen when you walk down Grafton Street well I think the first thing that you notice is the street is seething with life there's wall to wall people coming and going in either direction and you know living in Dublin. You're always if you live there you're gonna run into someone you know in that street. You know when you walk down it you don't see any churches right on the street but hiding a little bit off. The way is a Catholic Church. Why would a Catholic Church be hiding off the main street in Dublin? Well Saint Theresa's Church right off. Grafton Street was One of the first places that it was allowable. I believe for Roman Catholics to openly worship after the period of time in the eighteenth century known as the penal laws when open practice of Roman Catholicism was officially outlawed by British rulers in Ireland so that churches write-offs in Stephen's Green and it's very much an oasis of tranquility in the city as it has been since the eighteenth century Saint Teresa's. It's a beautiful church to depend to end. It is interesting to think that in Ireland. Dublin was sort of London's second city and it was very not Catholic but when Catholicism was allowed you could worship as Catholics in Dublin but keep a low profile exactly so these great churches are tucked away in the back streets although they were allowed to openly practice. That wasn't really opened. That was in inverted commas. The church still had to be kinda hidden away. They weren't allowed to build churches on a main street. That's why it's down outside. So it Joe at the bottom of Grafton street you come to a very important College Beautiful College Trinity College and originally for the elites for the Protestant kids but of course today Everybody's welcome as it traveled. How do enjoy Trinity College? Well the best way to visit is to go into the front main entrance on an area called college dot Grafton Street just continue on straight over to your right hand side and you come into a beautiful Georgian Square. A huge amount of Dobbin was rebuilt. George an and that's like neoclassical screams. British Empire Eighteenth Century he and George W was rebuilt in the eighteenth century in Georgia. So we're one of the best Georgian cities. In Britain colleges SORTA like the elite colleagues for Ireland. Even go to college was founded in one thousand nine hundred hundred nothing left of the original college. It was almost totally rebuilt starting in Sixteen Ninety S and then Roy Eighteenth Century Karen my favorite thing when I step through that Grand. Entrance of Trinity is a little table where our students offering tours? Yeah that's right and I used to live right across from that table when I was in college and Trinity. Right in front square and there are students known as scholars of the college who've passed a competitive examination to have free tuition at the college and they give tours of front square dressed in the academic gowns. That were still common among students until recently and they are really eloquent. Fun-loving students giving you a candid. Look at student life. It's very inexpensive. It's a great way to get a sense of Trinity College absolutely in a great way to get a sense of the tradition of wit in Dublin. It goes back to one of the most famous Students at Trinity Oscar Wilde are guides to Dublin travel with Rick Steves are irish-american Cure. No half he attended. Kennedy College is an expert on the Ellen pipes which he performs with the company trio opened the door for three Joe. Darcy provides custom walking tours of Dublin and was recently on the board of historic Sweeney's pharmacy. Where James Joyce readings are given throughout the week when we go to Trinity College? Of course you've got to go to the library and see the book of Kells and so one of the most important medieval art treasures in Western civilization when you leave trinity when I was really struck by is a bank that used to be the parliament step in there and you get a little dose of British rule of Ireland Joe. Tickets into that the most important building built in Dobbin Jordan rebuilding eighteenth century was a new bike camera. Houses apartment one of the first purpose built house the parliament certainly in Europe. If not the world took about forty years to complete S- between seventeen forty. Seven hundred eighty and housed. Two Chambers House will come in the House of Lords very much along the the British can step into one of those houses to this day. It's open during banking errors free and and you really got sense of that little after the act of union and the first of January eighteen hundred one we became part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the Bank of Ireland. Arden's forced commercial bank. They took over the building paid for the House of Commons. Hot To be put out of use never to be used as a place of assembly again but they said nothing about the House of Lords so the Bank of art and has maintained. And it's a beautiful room. It's mostly open Jordan banking hours occasionally there's functions and there you'll see a sign outside that it's either open or closed. I stumbled into it just this last year. I never knew about it and it was great now. Joe I know that you take tours of the bridges of Dublin from this Trinity College in the Parliament Building. You can walk basically through temple bar. That's the party's own. All the pubs are and all the drinking and so on at night and all the tourist go there for their classic Irish kind of fun. You go through temple bar in you get to the. Hey Penny Bridge. Tell us about the bridge. The river and the other bridges that Lease North and South Dublin. Together hate me. Praise was built in eighteen. Sixteen what's over two hundred years ago and it was forced pedestrian bridge amazingly replaced a ferry service across the river from the fashionable northside. Still Fashionable Dan to the new partier temple.

"Then we get into transportation Russian insecurity and education and identity in all of those things but it all the concept of the smart city was was really I get. Yeah Yeah Yeah and when you look at the digital identity project what were some of the barriers that you were faced with. And how did you manage to circumvent invent them. Well one barriers perception when you use the term blockchain and I'm sure guests so when you talk about people here cryptocurrency gap and they hear Bitcoin and they hear that they don't hear blockchain and so we do try to that we started just calling it digital identity and and not so much blockchain because it distracts people and they think of it as the flavor of the day and Hype and all of those things. So that's an issue. We don't have a lot funding There's no funding for these kinds of innovation so you kinda have to partner and do public private partnerships and and explore a really Lee low budget kind of experiments in. That's why we done a proof of concept at a very limited way So those are a couple couple of barriers. There's not a lot even the most advanced smart cities that you're hearing about. There's not a lot of funding there and there's a lot of doubt Dublin in our recently at an event the other night Two percent Many of these advances to residents has a very active in supportive residents base. So my advice is for other cities is if you are typically in the stance of telling your city you really are no good and you doing everything wrong. And we don't trust you. They're not going to innovate a whole lot. And you're not going to bring a lot of ideas to you but if when they do bring a new idea to you you say. Hey We support this. We want you to continue. You're likely likely to get better innovation out of your community and I get a lot of out of the people of Dublin. Ohio route excellent excellent. You're taking a very customer. centric took approach. You have a community. That supports your initiatives. This is really good stuff it's You're acting a lot like a start up by the sounds of it. Yeah absolutely absolutely there is co creation and I actually do use startup concepts and principles. We use agile. We talk about iteration in in. That is very difficult. Vocal for government Yes to interim governments have budgets. They have you have to have your idea fully baked and then you present it and then you get budget for and then you must be successful. There's a very rare situation where you can try something. And that's an education thing that we really have to work on a lot definitely definitely so. Can you describe to us a little bit about your digital identity solution and for example how how was it designed. And how did you enter your partners owners to build a solution that I'd like to hear more about it please. Yeah we actually created a group before we thought about developing solution here called the Dublin blockchain group. That was my attempt to plant a flag A few years ago a couple years ago Where we said we want all all of the tech companies in the area to come out? Sit Down Hackers. You know People in the back rooms there companies. Who are really experimenting in? SORTA keeping these these skunkworks in secret. Come out and amongst friends. Were just going to discuss them. We had a few meetings of that in a few companies emerged as really just being compassionate about this I started talking to one. It was a software verde and we started conceiving of what would be great use. Case for how government could be using blockchain. What's a value to citizens and we did go through an RSP process and they were selected But it started with the Dublin blockchain in grouping in doing that I do WanNa mention to you some of the characteristics of our digital identity. Because I think that's also what you're asking and one of them is just the identity we're using a qr code and some encryption which allows you to use public private key kind of scenario so that you walk into a government building lingers Qr Code. There you use your phone to scan it or to be scanned by it and certain personal information would be able to be passed. This is in my view personal identifiable information or P I as a service so that data is data that we have on you you as a citizen we WANNA keep it in one place not in file cabinets all over the city putting one place so that when you scan your digital identity you can be identified forums or two interim meeting to do any of those things. There are two other aspects of the identity that I consider applications. One of them is a points based system that we have Dublin points so that you can use your digital identity to undertake activities which is consistent with the values of our community such as sustainability or cybersecurity or volunteering or something like that and you will gain points from from the city that you could regain for some cities swag or for some benefits or something of a arbitrary value and that's an important part so the token go ahead. It starts at this point in a token format. I'm assuming they are in. It's an arbitrary value. So if I give you five points that doesn't Correspond to fifty cents or five dollars anything like that. You can only use them in coins. Trading and the third application is around polling. Need to as a city vehicle to ask you a question as a citizen and you need to be able to answer and you need to have trust that your answer Sir or your polling question. Your vote has been taken seriously that it is cure. It's not tampered with those things in meeting to know that you are a citizen that you actually answered this question with that functionality. There's a number of things that we could be doing as a city that currently under our democracy interesting we only use othing for votes for people for questions inferred certain taxes but don't express our desires to our government comment more frequently in a very reliable man so that is part of the experiment as well. So there's a digital identity. A token of value and Poland are all three applications of this excellent. Now how long has has been Live and what are some kind of the re- The The data points in terms of the results on. How often is it being used? I'm trying to get an idea of you know of of how well it's being accepted by the community while again we're taking an interest in stance and so we had done a significant amount of testing we tested with internal it staff of the city first. And then we test was city city. Staff were not outsiders and we had another session which we tested with volunteers who are not members of city staff with the residents residents of the city and then we just the other night had of a mortgage consideration kind of thing with members of the public so it is not widely in use has been live and in production for only a few weeks. Now actually And we're going slow. which is something that most governments don't have the ability to do you have have to show results immediately but because our project is not dependent upon life safety or anything like that? We didn't spend a huge amount of money on it. We can get it right A.. And take our time so I don't have. It would be less than ten people using it now because again. We WanNa work the bugs out. And we're having people experiment with entering the eighty eight of the feedback that we've gotten from residents and all across our region is a huge amount of positivity just for the experiment and we WANNA to make sure that we're not representing this as anybody in the city of Dublin. Hasta this or will ever have to have it. It's not a requirement it is strictly voluntary. I WanNa make sure that there's a comfort level with people at we're not usurping or taking over what the identity system that is not the case so this is a slow moving okay okay And in terms of the actual infrastructure picture that you use. I understand that you built this on Bitcoin cash. Could you explain to us some of the reasoning for that. Sure while it was presented to me. I am not a person who is part of the global battle between the coin. Bitcoin cash or different various crypto currencies currencies. In in in those kinds of things. I am more practical just in terms of stability availability Installed base and some of those things so as it was presented to me I looked at bitcoin. Cash as up something that just worked I am not concerned about joining into a global community although there is one for all of these crypto currencies do like other crypto currencies games. I like a theory I like. I think that there's a lot of advantages to them but part of the reason for us. Doing this project is for us to learn as well so I don't need the selected elected infrastructure to be perfect or for it to last a hundred years so I don't need to get into those arguments or questions what I need stability not in availability and I found that the bitcoin cash community has the technology that we need in order for these information transactions to be a highly available highly secure and. I don't spend a lot of time talking about it or evangelizing about bitcoin cash specifically of. But I can tell you that it does everything that we asked to do have had no stability your or security questions around it and I feel really good about that choice. EXON EXON and when you're looking at the T. cited you consider self-serving identity platforms such as ones by bill bill by sovereign or others or What was your thinking with regards to these kind of platforms? I did not only because of their ultimate goals. At at the end of the day we are government and we are attempting to create something that allows us as a government to hold onto I personally identifiable information and interact with residents self sovereign identity as I understand. It is highly independent of Any type of government interactivity and so it just didn't fit for what we were trying to do. In terms of applications. Like when I'm talking about polling and points in those kinds of things however I believe in the self sovereign identity concept and we want to make sure we're we're developing a platform that can be integrated with other forms of digital identity especially where blockchain is concerned so. We didn't go in that direction election for this particular experiment. But I remain open to the possibilities of integrating with or you know eventually just sort of melding these various Identity scenario of course. Of course now I understand. You're still in the early stages of your project. But what have you given some thought. In terms of some of the additional features you would like to include an into your project. Absolutely we it. You have to be careful about Matt Dreaming Big Fast and sometimes you've got a platform that works in the immediately start thinking of under different applications. And you don't have the money a Europe those kinds of things so we we are spreading this in evangelizing about it. In looking for private partners there is a very interesting use case in which a private company bunny could utilize. Pi of individual with their permission without having to store it. So I think there's some Public Private Evan partnerships that could come out of this Initially for us just as a city we see the ability to go in make a request for a service from your city any by just scanning. Qr Code as being one of the simplest basic things that we just want to spread across all sorts of different services that we offer today. We also I WANNA get into our public school system. There's immediate applications there so that some of the Business Education and nonprofit kind interests are able to take advantage of the existence of such a thing about this is all experimentation in those are very attractive to of course of course nine nine again. I appreciate you know that you're still in the early stages but you probably you're gonNA get already have or will be getting very fast. Some learnings regarding you know the project you're working on and do you believe that your platform or at least your learnings could be part of a larger state digital ought entity program or perhaps even part of federal one absolutely and we've actually heard from states other states that are developing theirs and They find that this platform is a very interesting one to go forward with so States are looking at that some other states and the federal government I believe are independently developing and designing some of these things. If you figure a small suburb was able to do it. Certainly the federal government can come up with scenarios. Well they they cannot move as fast as we can and so again we wanted to plant a flag and make it so that we didn't get frozen out because once a state decides that this is how it's going to be. It's going to be very difficult for cities to experiment and do those kinds of things again. That's our brand. There are other cities around the state of Ohio. Who who are looking to throw in with us in and do some of the same things and we see? The collections of cities can be as powerful as states are and so so. It's Kinda up in the air how this is all going to shake out but we want to be at the table. We don't want to hear from another government that hey we figured it out. Just do do what we tell you to do. WE WANNA be..

"Leave there it is. That's okay Stephen. I'd mark. He's listening to you right now but in the future it. Does you ride your bike. There flower bike wrote it. So nice okay but the bar. I'm basically it's called Dark Kelly's pub on Campbell Street in Christchurch Dublin. And you'll find when you go there you'll find a plaque with an inscription exception that reads this building was eighteenth century. Brothel run by Madame Dorky. Kelly who in seventeen forty six was publicly executed for the alleged murder her child. Oh Shit Yeah Okay but the real story is a little bit different than that. I'm GonNa tell it to you. Great so her real name is Dorky. Kelly no jokes. We don't do that. We don't make fun of People's name it's weird. It's just weird though that that name has survived a test. Time this is my son. Mackenzie and my daughter Dorkcast. The problem sounded great with an accent sure. So nickname was Dorky. which is problematic as well so the thing about history history about us? I'm really fucked up. Shits happens to many many people one of them. Okay so I'm going to call her because she deserves that okay. She ran a brothel called maiden tower in the late. Seventeen fifty s in an ironic name the tower our part in copper alley in the southwest part of Dublin. Okay she ran it seventy you saw. Yeah she had retired by the time. I don't know data hang. You're done. Lucky Gal at the maidens come into the tower right. She's like I'm going to run this shit. I did it. I'm done with it now. I'm in charge of PAT hanging it up so she had retired by this time and was just the proprietor. The woman who ran the you know the proprietor proprietors if appropriate tricks so man do this. She said that she had one customer that she was the only person she saw. And he happened to be the sheriff of Dublin named Simon Latrell. L. Let's see here's a photo of her little Demi Moore going off real always. GELS did people that can do a center part. Oh yeah ask those of us. Who are the Big Irishman Ken on my hair right above my ear like Donald Trump? I'm jealous of people who can look over it. Even in a painting like Shimon so over that the pain paint me all you want. This is bullshit okay. Then here's her lover lover. I could never give up Simon. The Trout Shariff Somboon okay what's he doing. Is it Christmas. Here's the thing about him. He was a fucking crazy person. Okay so bad. His nickname King of hell polled them written about him. Which I guess in those days it someone wrote a poem about you to slam it was like super duper slam? Like wasn't just talking shit like I wrote a poem about it because I also think back in those days it might be wrong. But that's you would get up recites so it's like it wouldn't just be like are you ready for the king and help tonight author or six. Let's do this here. Whatever spread it around? Not so that the poem was that if Satan ever we needed to retire higher Simon to take over but he was because he was a member of the notorious Hellfire club. Gino about it tag. Tell me tell me. It's bad bad. Good bad bad so okay it was in named for several exclusive clubs for High Society Rakes. And it was like what's that it's shaped short. Rake hell which also means hellraiser Sir rich high-society dudes who just wanted to you know caused some trouble and B's rich high society. I mean what else do they have to do this. After you buy a bunch of boats what is there for you to do meet up with other dudes. They're doing whatever they wanted to that. They needed a club so because you whatever they wanted to with the devil the devil so it was it was these men were habituated. Immoral conduct particularly womanising and it was established in Britain and Ireland or Lyndon Eighteenth Century and they were rumored to be meeting places of persons of quality who wished to take part in socially perceived immoral act. So I think there's just like a ton of boning and drugs drag and stuff like that so just kind of like the Internet of the past the dark web. The dark web at the pass is that the Dublin chapter was headed by. Richard Parsons who is a founding member of the Hellfire Club. He was known to be in the black magic. And the club members were known to be super into partying and having to Botch Sacra and there were rumors. That members were Satanists. Like they were so bored by just being bad that they were like. Let's bring Satan into this party seeing like Yom boring me and they would have these crazy rituals where wrote earmarks Stephen. They would sacrifice cats. Oh I know Facing thank here the wrong place. The box streep box tickets eating garbage. And it's like a popcorn thing but absorb it and let me show and I love to Dabble They would they would set a place for the double at their table. That's not very scary. The devil is Ludi treble oil. I ask the the suit that dorkiest only down with yes. She then allegedly became pregnant with his baby and according to Simon Jude she came into him and demanded money and we don't opens either for helping with the child or to keep it quiet. And so his response to that was very sane and normal sang. She was a witch problem saw and he convinced his anti-arab friends stays in the law ecosystem back. Then you know sure to try for being in a witch problem song so so he gives her witchcraft and he said that she sacrificed her baby. But then it's rumor that he actually sacrificed her baby. Then it's rumored that shells so maybe wasn't pregnant at all so let's go with that one okay so at the trial she was like. You can't kill me because I'm pregnant and then because it was true that you couldn't kill sacrifice someone they were pregnant but not sacrifice you know assassin hang drown. Yeah whatever they were going to do put under a rock. That was the thing they just kind of smash you. I don't mean of course I wish you would. How power she on trial for sacrificing your baby and then she said but I'm pregnancy account account? Well a bunch of midwives for like she's pregnant so it's not known if she was or was it or what but the witchcraft thing was got it. Got It okay. Simon testified that she had been casting spells on him to extort money and to make fun with her. That's how love works is not witchcraft. Amass feeling as you deal with that no he doesn't doesn't double whatever so even though the body of this alleged sacrifice child was never found and darkness was found guilty of witchcraft and her punishment was death so in seventeen forty six. This is how they put her to death. She's partially hanged. And then publicly burnt alive at the crossroads and bag at Fitzwilliam Street in Dublin city centre job. I think there's an ancient. I'm there now which again great job. I'm so that they may hang her first and they said it was like women didn't just get burnt at the stake. They also like did something beforehand. But then I was like I saw another thing that was like they. They have killed her. She'd be unconscious when they burn her. Because the people boohooed allowed to watch public executions didn't want to hear the screaming of the people being burned at the stake conscious which is actually like better than being burns the snake I would guess you know the specificity a poor hangman having to hang up so that they're only on conscious. This is a lot to ask site from the bag. Of what a bummer. It'd be it'd be hangman anyway. You have to get it. Just empathy lies with the hangman. Always John and then go to Durkee Kelly's after here. Yeah okay.

But if you happen to be going to Dublin people there is a road called depending on where you're starting. If you're in Dublin, they call it the Dublin Galway wrote if you're Galway they call it the Galway Dublin road. It reminds me of the surface of the road number of lanes and whatnot similar to the mass pike in Massachusetts. Similar to the New Jersey turnpike. I don't know what to compare it to in the west coast for all of you listening out there. But it's it's a highway the difference is that while the mass pike in Massachusetts has absolutely gorgeous scenery along the route. As does the Galway Dublin Dublin Galway road. There are things they do in Ireland that'll blow your mind. So if you happen to be in Dublin is a two hour drive. Just like the jersey turnpike, just like the mass pike. It's a two hour drive from one extreme end to the other extreme meant. But in Ireland, you're driving along and all of a sudden, you look up and are statues of horses and their sculptures of snakes. I guess to remind you about Saint, Patrick, and there's there's all this artwork. Yawn inbetween looking out at sheep and cows and horses and greenery and mountains, and what have you? I mean is it. The coolest thing ever. So if you're in Dublin, it's no big deal to get to to Galway. But don't go out for the day. You know to the west coast to see the cliff Samoa and turn around and go right back to Dublin. You gotta spend some time in the west coast people.
