"estonia" Discussed on Let's Talk About Digital Identity
"Europe. That basically was announced. The ida's to it as the anybody neuro gun stolen themselves application. You can use to identify yourself and also most embarked on the great what if and it must be a fee for the people insured money got into you need to bay for the autozone Air to get back signal. Should god's smart god and free months to get it but then you have application. It's even easier for free and this is going to happen in snow and another trend east of let's take phoenix If i ask any bank or anybody in finnish government shade a little fund does option. Whitley no way how to a fake news any entity. We didn't defy using dismantled than you do to your tissues One who she says from that. Of course Why it is not different knee. E why aren't gun. Threes are not action thing is needs to accomplish tips on on site but often apt if you identify us uniquely then you also abe do issue. What if i if gates authenticity scarring of use intimidation. So even if banks do not want. What if i della tony. She showed the need to steal possible to use the same bank. Id and these wifi scientific for the user to sign the document. I find even less and less reasons to stick with simplisafe When you find Under news fights fully standardized. All over the european level is looking. You can always change the royal data. Son everything is like followers. Yeah if we would have some final reflections on this discussion. What would you say would be a good advice for business owners who do know that they need signatures and are thinking of what kind of solution to choose. I would say from my that everyone. We implementing electronic signatures in bro. Says says must have wonder wait a minute. Let the great qualified signature if they want to. Maybe dennis not everybody wants to each like saying bit corona vaccines some. But some people. Don't want especially bobby daughter in you'll have that involves qualified electricity senior The number i wanted to wear it meant stepped or local washable. Only fi delicto execution mantos must be included in that. Yeah i think that's good advice and from my side i would add to that. Let's say from public sector perspective that those that do procurement within for example the public sector for an electronic signing solution they have quite salute of power and the first thing i think they should make sure is part of the specification when they do. Public procurement is the signing solution. Should never add any extra or trailed page or any extra text to the signed document that would invalidate any certificate signatures that have been formerly added to the uploaded document. Every information should be only in the certificate signature and it's midsized data fields so with this point added into procurement specification. You will get a very long way because it will give you that flexibility that allows four qualified signatures to be used and then finally i think i like to give advice from the citizen perspective and that would be just start using the qualified electronic signature that you already have access to. This would be a non issue in estonia because you have. It's all rolled out to the entire population. Already since i would say decades back by now but for us in finland for example it wife would be for the citizens. Just start using the certificate the citizens to ticket you already have and if your laptop doesn't have a card slot then think about going that small extra step and order a card reader online for your id card. Nowadays they are not big and bulky devices with a cord but you can even get them a small esa memory stick. That's one thing then. Of course there are providers already that issued qualified electronic signatures not only for citizens of their own country but for any european citizens so that is also another possibility. If you don't want to use a card then all so if you use them and it is not accepted by a public authority. Let's say then stand your ground and referred to aid us because you are entitled to use them so a little pushiness might be needed sometimes to really get the awareness raced and johann also mentioned the audrey can actually say that most thought that beaten glass alike lenovo dell. Computers have the he has beaten. I know myself because there is a lot of used is data. So that's coming from nordics and most of them have so have resin experienced You even how gandhi that eve annual may be do not realize that you have menu field and then you have if great signage showed fuel go. Look you're goads. Where did you put them when you tidy good. Thanks a lot being a truly fascinating conversation thing.

What are Frontier Markets?
"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index. Morocco is twelve percent. Iceland's eight percent. Kenya seven percent. Kazakhstan is seven percent in looking at ways to invest the primary. Etf i found for us based investors is the i shares mci frontier and select emerging market. Etf i'm not sure exactly when i shares renamed it but the largest wait in that. Etf is kuwait at nineteen percent. And as i mentioned kuwait was upgraded from my frontier market to an emerging market.
Robert Atwateron Photograpy Formats
"You probably know his work from the first edition of frames magazine one of the featured artists that we have there. We're gonna talk about an awful lot to we're gonna talk about landscape photography. We're gonna talk about a life spent and just more than fifty countries. He's been in india. He's been in europe. He's been the caribbean latvia. Estonia even death valley and a small island off the coast of massachusetts robert. Welcome how are you today. I'm well thanks. This is a real treat to be able to discuss your work because so many of the the moods and the flavors that you've got close to my own heart. But i wanna start with something. That's a little bit unusual. You just for practical reasons for a lot of us. You have shot your work through your entire life was just about every format possible. You've got polaroid's you've got medium format you've got iphones in there. I mean just just right here at the very beginning. Dis- format matter ultimately. Probably not. And i can say that at this point in my career as a mature established photographers certainly along the line formats. Not especially when. I started moving migrating away from thirty five millimeter. When i first started out went to two and a quarter. My ambition was like. I really need a four by five cameron. Sheep fill and so you know. I went down that road a long time with some amazing results. Dance your question. In retrospect i don't think format makes that much difference. Why do we have such an interest in for. I mean there are obviously the technical differences you know and iphone is not a medium format camera in terms of the images that it produces. But finally what makes you say. The difference is not all that important. Yeah right so it's really about what you're making. A photograph of is the image itself. This guy what's his name. Chase jarvis the one who said the best camera you own the one that you have absolutely and i read that one hundred percent so i also belong to a bunch of other groups on facebook large format and you know. I'm amazed that there is still so many photographers out there. Using large format cameras. Larger than eight by ten and god level. You know it's like i love. You is the you're you're still doing that. And that's just not who i am anymore.

Estonia's first female PM sworn in as new government takes power
"Let's then continue to estonia. That has become the only country in the world with women serving both fest prime minister and president. The country's new government was sworn in earlier today. Officially making connel's the country's first female prime minister the previous government had to resign due to a corruption scandal. God relief cassini policy fellow at the european council on foreign relations wasn't to surprise that estonia goes new female leader. Let's hear what she had to say. Stone years to wherever always has been gender equality. Women have always worked as hard as men things with worried. People have always been such things but the united states men and women rob divide. I mean when i grow up increase of soviet was the big thing and dealing with that men and women were same. So i didn't see. That's a such a big breakthrough but of course i mean normally it is because it hasn't had that sort of thing earlier but i think it happened naturally because many of resumed women on the top of reform party. They are close associates of of kaya colossus. So it wasn't like set thick just because they were. We mean the patriots. Your pirates places. Politics code released mr union herself there denny on what does it tell us about a country if it has a female leader. I take what Qadri leak said there in that clip to heart where she talked about the fact that it's for people in estonia. They met understand a little something about equality or might look at their society where we there is a bit more equality but i think the symbol of having the leader being a woman is very important for any country and for the rest of the world to see. It does mark a step forward. I think calvi say looking at good press from different countries around the world from from new zealand. And beyond what's happened in the united states last week with comma harris. It's an important step. And i think it's it's good especially in this time where i worry about a little bit of backsliding on on equality and things really good Newspaper reports in the global mail in canada over the weekend illustrating What sort of The not the political sphere. But what the business sphere has looked like and and what has changed throughout the pandemic. and the there's really been some backsliding on equality in boardrooms and the c. suite level for businesses across the country. Where it's even more male dominated. So i think in the political sphere is quite important as well to see this and i think it is a step forward. It's it's it's real simple to not only the eu partners but people around the world that especially Miskelly she's a young woman as well so i think that is important for For the country and for the projects that they'll want to work on in the u. It's knowing that estonian. I was to female leader still does change the way you see the country. Can i just say great pronunciation. I take outs from the proximity between estonia and finland. You're probably the only person on the show getting that right The language is very similar. Quick question for you. Marcus to turn on you they are. We can't quite understand each other. Words have different meanings because those two languages separated thousands of years ago. But you can get a clue what i'm reading estonian. Newspapers don't always need many translate sometimes make sense in phoenix too. I mean i mean talking about estonia. I think it's just interesting. Look it's tiny nation of about one point three million people of course paul of the soviet union in the post. I think it will. It will make people turn their heads a little bit and wanted to know About a year. And it's you know it's been a country that perhaps people didn't not about until fairly recently but it's been doing a very interesting things it's oversee really tried to give it up to be open to Entrepreneurship of recent kind of quoting itself. the digital nation and and pioneering. This this thing could e residency which is basically allowing people easy access online. Things like banking and payment processing and taxation. So it's been very forward looking in that regard also in terms of Mobility in public transport. And things like that. So i think this will cement ready the fact that you do now have both the prime minister president who women just really We'll be good for for the. Brian will be good for. So powell will go online but those things i mentioned as well thinking. This is a progressive interesting european nation a. And maybe make people onto no more done not agree with us to this can be a boost. I soft power. You work with our business program the entrepreneurs and it mentioned residency for example. How estonia's trying to attract new talent do think this this indeed. The that's people read news at lies about estonian having to female leaders and they kind of want to know more about that country one hundred percent i think people will be watching this closely and thinking about what it means for their next move or opportunity perhaps a thinking of talon perhaps as a as a new berlin of course you create a welcoming environments and wait to see if people will arrive. I think back actually to a good conversation. I had with the founder of a company called your baticle which is based out of estonia and we had this exact conversation about how sort of a small nation like that can make itself attractive on the world stage for people to come. Obviously you pointed out the e passport there and the potential to to have people on there is it would be very attractive for someone working remotely of course for for perhaps a bigger multinational company based somewhere else For its quality of life. Great capital Close to a lot of other places and it's looking like a very vibrant startup scene. So i think you know you show people that there is a welcoming environment in a social sense. And it can do wonders marcus. I really think until a really help. The country selling itself abroad
Globalization is ending. What's next?
"We are at the end of globalization. We taken globalization for granted and as it drifts into history. We're going to miss. The second wave of globalization begun in the nineties and it delivered a great deal. Billions of people rose out of poverty. More impressively both prattled congress like vietnam and bangladesh increased by over six times in the last twenty years. The number of democracies rose in countries as diverse as chile malaysia. Estonia held free and fair elections. The role of women improved in many parts of the world. If you look at wages policy and companies like spain or access to education in countries like saudi arabia economically supply chains spread like webs around the world with car parts criss crossing borders before the final product. Coming into place is also changed the way we live now. it's changed our diets. It's changed how we communicate how we consume news. An entertainment how we travel and how we work but no globalization is on its deathbed. It's run into the limitations of its own. Success inequality a new record levels of business for example world to gdp is now pushing that was not seen since the polio wars. Two hundred years ago. Show us that. The advantages of globalization have been mis directed. The global financial crisis was the result of this mismanagement. And since then policymakers have done little but contain rather than solve the problems of our age. Now some highly globalised countries. Such as arlanda in the netherlands managed to improve income inequality in their countries by better distributing the bounties of globalization to higher taxes and social welfare programs. Other countries have not been as good russia. And especially the united states hub extreme levels of wealth in policy more extreme even during the time of the roman empire and this is convinced. Many people that globalization is against them and that the bounties of globalization have not been shared with the many a now in twenty twenty were confronted by the pandemic which has shaken the groaned under us on further exposed the frailties of the globalized world order in past international crisis. Most of them economic or geopolitical the hers usually ultimately been a sense of a committee to save the world leaders leading nations would come together but this time uniquely there has been no such collaboration against the backdrop of trade wars. Some countries like the. Us have outbid others for masks. There's been hacking of vaccine programs on common enemy. The pandemic has not been met with the common response to any hope that we might have a world vaccine or world. Recovery program is in vain. Snow worth the end over nira in history. An era that began with the fall of communism that set in train the flow of trade of finance of people under ideas
"estonia" Discussed on Rocks Across the Pond
"They come. They regularly to play there and And so you great one thousand. Unique visits. Sites. Same people who are coming. More. But in our case when we have, you know I think our record season was we had that over three hundred, the corporate events during the nine. We are open from a what from from at the end of. Until, the end of. May and we had three hundred corporate events. So the average. Corporate Events Around fifteen people? Are you great? The four thousand five, hundred unique visits. And do. Draft to this you know something we have around one thousand, five, hundred student visits. So also if you had these. Already six thousand unique visits these people are going to air. I don't know back to their families are back to their offices they talk about carling. So it's actually the snowball is getting bigger and bigger. So our strategy was like how can how we can get our woodhams bigger and bigger and bigger? That more people are aware of of curling and and you know. The Sistan. Get going to me or Changing all the time like what is this the right modal? I think we. At the moment where we are also finding our way, what is the right modal in Estonia the news there is some examples all over the world but the, but the every country's different there they have their own backgrounds it said there. So so think every country has to find their their own model what what works for them you can you can. You can add some things from from different countries but. Again. You have to find your your your own modal and. So. So some people have asked me that, okay, you have one, thousand, five, hundred student visits but tread the how many of them come back that are or or or become curlers, and and for me it's not actually important because it important for us how we can make contact with with the students..
Emails threatening Florida, Pennsylvania voters to "vote for Trump or else!" linked to overseas servers
"Voters in at least four battleground states, including Florida and Pennsylvania, received threatening emails falsely purporting to be from the far right group Proud boys that warned quote, We will come after you and quote if the recipients didn't vote for President Donald Trump. The voter intimidation operation apparently used email addresses obtained from state voter registration lists, which include party affiliation and can include email addresses. Those addresses where then used that and apparently widespread targeted spamming operation. The sender's claimed they would know which candidate the recipient was voting for in the November 3rd election, for which early voting is already going on. Federal officials have long warned about the possibility of this type of operation. Such registration lists are not difficult to obtain. Last night after reports of the emails first surfaced, Christopher Cribs the top election security officials at the Department of Homeland Security tweeted that the emails are meant to intimidate and undermine American voters confidence in the elections. He urged voters not to fall for sensational and unverifiable claims, reminding them that ballot secrecy is guaranteed by law. In all, state security researcher John Scott Railton, who examined dozens of the emails said they were sent by a group its identity unknown that put considerable time and effort. Into identifying vulnerable Internet servers in several countries, including Estonia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which they hijacked to send the e mails Associated Press obtained one of the e mails sent from a business address in Estonia. From a Florida voter voters in Arizona and Alaska also received them. And then late this afternoon, U. S officials said Iran's responsible for emails meant to intimidate American voters and So unrest in multiple states. Thie officials were calling out both Tehran and Russia for activities meant to interfere in the upcoming presidential election. The announcement of a rare news conference underscored concern within the U. S government about efforts by foreign countries to spread false information meant to suppress voter turnout and undermine American confidence in the vote. John Ratcliffe, the government's top intelligence official, who along with FBI director Chris Ray Held. The press conference insisted that the US would impose costs on any foreign countries that interfere in the 2020. U. S election.

The messages could be tracked back to some overseas server, CBS News determined The e mails originated from an I P address linked to servers located in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates in Estonia, But experts say it's not clear who was behind the stunt. Enrique Taro, a proud boy leader, said Tuesday that the group wasn't involved and that he didn't know who sent the e mails.

WFH From Barbados
"Global tourism as you might expect, has been way down this year the number of people going overseas on vacation declined by a massive sixty, five percent in the first half of the air. But this hit was especially bad for Barbados the Caribbean island nation has built its economy around tourism, and normally this is a really great business more than a million tourists typically visit. Barbados. And they're all these businesses that depend on these tourist hotels and restaurants and local farms that supply the restaurants and all of these people count on the tourism sector. It makes about a third of Barbados's GDP as people started to halt their plans for trips to places like Barbados those jobs and businesses, they took a huge hit. So the country's Prime Minister Mia Motley. She had an idea and I spoke to UC skeet about this. He's the US director at the organization that promotes tourism to Barbados Prime Minister Recognize that we have an opportunity to welcome these individuals who are working. Remotely to come to Barbados enjoy all that the Allen has to offer and stole be able to work. So what it did is it allowed us to look beyond short-term visitor and create lungs. The visitor is on the island and the government developed a special new visa twelve months long, and they're just a few conditions you have to work for your employer back home ending at least fifty thousand dollars a year that is, you know you're not getting a job in Barbados also, you pay two thousand dollars application fee and you need your own health insurance which travel insurance can typically cover. Application is approved Bam. You can sit up let up in a hammock overlooking the Caribbean on horseback. Emiko horseback take your pick and you know probably not very surprisingly daring after having seen this ad over two thousand people like, Sean. Have applied for the welcome stamp visa and it doesn't sound like a ton but using explained why this is actually a really important economic boost, they have to find a place to live. They have to eat this hurtling going to participate in a lot of the attractions and activities in addition to that. Then no become because I can guarantee you want to come into the welcome stamping Barbados they're not gonNA WANNA leave. So they're also become a part of the voice that tells their friends and families at that. You must visit Barbados and I think that then has even longer term benefits and I. Think that's certainly a win win. But of course, this question comes up in my head, right like, could it really be this easy I? mean if it is maybe the entire population of the world is going to end up in the Caribbean. But to check this out, we went to talk to Tim Burgess. He's the CO founder of an international workforce company called Shield Jimbo he's working internationally is not always so simple. There's there's a whole lot of compliance and I guess I. Sort of administrative issues that people don't think about in this context. Tim says, there are two main obstacles to international working from home. So first of all, if you're going for a long length of time like at least six months, you have to start thinking about taxes. If you're for example going to Mexico you might become tax resident in Mexico, your employment say hold on now where liable for having employees Mexico, and of course, this is not just income tax right? Example, Hanshin State health insurance. Yeah. All the different components of social security a few moved from the US. To Franz the employees accost goes from about fifteen percent on top of the salary to forty seven to fifty percent on top of the summer. So it's not as easy as just going to a we work in Paris. It's a very gray area. Barbados got around this particular snag. They said, you do not need to pay taxes in Barbados with this particular visa just keep paying your taxes and social security to home country but Tim. Raises a second issue, which is if you'll say working for an American company but want to work overseas the company you work for start to need to comply with your new countries, regulations and labor laws like say, maybe you'll be forced to take the minimum twenty four vacation days required by Jim. Laurie. If you relate to Berlin, which would be sad. Yeah. I mean that would be a struggle, but I would be up for tackling that. So Barbados, really turned this gray area into a very simple and clear invitation to remote worker. They saw this. And so Darian you know we started talking about this and we were wondering like, is this the wave of the future? I really hope and my hope is that people take it up. It would be a really wonderful initiative and a great model that people could follow and a lot of other countries have realize there is a huge opportunity here Estonia has launched its own visa. So has Bermuda and so Shaun the business intelligence analyst from Charlotte she's a tastes case company said, yes, and to visa was approved and the horses in hammocks wait exactly excited I I couldn't believe it.

The Fate of Refugees After World War II
"David NASA joins us. Now from New, York is the author of many books including several biographies, notably, a Pulitzer Prize, finalist Andrew Carnegie as well as the Patriarch, his new book is called the last million Europe's displaced persons from World War Two Cold War David thanks for being here delighted to be with you. So you've written primarily biographies. This is very different book I mean I guess you could say it's a million biographies. Some of them were clearly outlined individual late than others what made you decide to make that transition I. Suppose it historian. What we try to do is correct the record give voice to the voiceless fill in the gaps in our history. And one of the largest gaps I thought was the immediate postwar period after World War Two. You. Know we Americans have come to believe that when the war was over the celebrations began the sun came out to shine and sailor kiss the beautiful woman in Times Square and everybody celebrated got on with their lives to get. That was not the truth as I learned certainly for the millions of refugees who were displaced by the war had no homes to return to after the war or were unwilling to return to their homelands when the war was over, there were millions of. Refugees. Prisoners of war political prisoners concentration camp victims left behind in Germany. On the day in May of Nineteen forty-five. Within weeks those who were able. To walk home to get on a truck to take a plane some road bicycles back to France five to six million had returned but a last million, this subject of my book and the title of my book were left behind in Germany. And he's their story that I tell. I mean, it really is not just a single story obviously and not just a story of all of these individuals but there were so many different kinds of displaced people, different groups, not just in terms of country of origin whether they were from the Baltic states or from Ukraine or were Jews from other parts of Europe were from Germany itself. But also you had this incredible and very confusing mix of collaborators deserters. Survivors of the Holocaust how can you tell that story when there are so many stories even within that last million one of the challenges of this book was to tell the story of individuals tell the story of groups and tell the story of the debate that went on in the united. Nations elsewhere between the nations of the world as to what to do. With these last million were left behind in Germany they came from there there were. Three groups, we can divide them into. The Germans. Understood the to fight the war with six to seven million. Soldiers they were GONNA have to replace those soldiers with laborers with forced labor slave labors from eastern. Europe? Who Work in the minds who work in the factories who work in the fields to replace the soldiers on the eastern? Front. And from the very beginning of the war the Germans literally kidnapped. Millions of eastern Europeans the largest number from Poland and Ukraine. and. They were brought into Germany and remained there when the war was over many of them because they were afraid to go home again, they didn't know what they were GonNa find some were convinced that. The Soviets have been taken over Poland and Ukraine there would be no way for them to resume their lives those the second group they came into Germany. And these from the Baltic states from Latvia Lithuania. Estonia. Many of them came into Germany in nineteen, forty, four, hundred, forty, five at the end of the war because they had collaborated in one way or the other. With the Nazi authorities

I, come across I. didn't read into how it actually help you guys. Regain your independence I didn't come across that but it whole lot of singing festivals, dance festivals. A. Lot of patriotism. It seems when it comes to the people of Estonia because what things I came across that I found unique and it spoke about. How other areas plays in the world are adopting it. Is. You basically, you you guys have a day where you just stop everything and clean like world cleanup day or it has. Let's say yes. Where that's essentially what happens like I think it. I. Think the article I read specifically mentioned that more. So grade school kids do it. Not. So much adults I'm sure that's expanded to. Yeah. It was. A started. It has been a lone long tradition. When I was a schoolkids every spring with the rakes and go to the nearest part can public areas and. The. Spring Clean this collected some trash that was there during the periods and that was kind of a tradition just every spring with this. Classes. So this is your section here this off section here, the boys with wheelbarrows and. Sometimes small choirs, women do you know just to Burnett's of botts? Let's do eat something that has gone worldwide's. That was The first Saturday of May I don't know how many years now yet. Just, old adults as well. You've put up others events that whether you clean the nature or you do something together, you just come together and do something. So something that needs to be done, it doesn't have to be just. Collecting from the nature. Although there are of events. With that but he has it can be exactly the say. So it can be also like you WANNA. Put a building I need a lot of people to help. This is like a traditional way of doing things. Hundreds of years ago Even hundred years ago. So when you need a big work to be done, you get be put together the work you fade then sometimes you enjoy some music afterwards. So So that's that's the story behind his. You know just incorporating the old traditions in today to the current laws and making some. Aggravates Oh. Yeah I mean we definitely do more of that for sure. I've never heard of it till the till today I know. On away smaller scale here wildlife at my job whenever we have a new orientation class coming through like a new group of new hires. They send them out to clean up. I think it's like two days straight. Definitely a day for shore to clean out the the local Eric is where my my job surrounded by wildlife, enforce and whatnot. So they'll send them out, pick up trash because you know it's it's on a busy road. So people always throwing cups and garbage and all that kind of crap out. So they do that. But. We definitely more that. That's for sure and how do you mentioned? Is kind of going back to the old ways. 'cause here in the states we have you know the Amish the Amish people, and that's that's how they do like if there's a new house to be built, the whole town comes together and everyone chips in a little bit and I still get have a good time throw up a house in you know a few days or whatever yeah. Yeah. I can imagine that is kind of how it was way back in the day to because I, there were what we consider a construction companies. Had Your family, your friends, neighbors what not? Hey, I want to build a house. All right. Let's miss all get together. Make it happen for everybody? Makes Sense makes a lot of sense and yes like I said, does does some good coast? Yeah we need. We need a better cleaner everything. And it's always. Communication of bubbling relationship the you get to know people in a whole different level. On they also education you're just. A having that work cabinets and when children are in you. In this process from a very young age they alone the cleanup process and there is a huge coat that they will be the people who are not throwing the cartridge out of the car window because they being on the side where the clean up the trash.

Mobile Voting's Future
"Maybe you've heard there's an election coming up. If you're voting and you didn't manage to get an absentee mail in ballot, you may have to spend hours waiting in line at your local school or Church to vote depending on which of the more than ten thousand election jurisdictions you're in. You could find yourself lead pencil in hand trying not to mark outside the lines of the bubbles on your ballot. And while you're standing there, you'll probably be spending time playing with your phone, checking your texts or even doing some chores. You might be transferring money to a friend for coffee or filling out your grocery water or shopping for clothes. Then it may on you I can do all these things on my phone.

My hope is that this kind of becomes the Black Swan Moment for mobile voting, other countries including India away Switzerland and Canada have already taken up internet voting Estonia has been doing it for more than a decade. But some people have deep concerns and the resistance is coming from some of the smartest technologists in the room. So it is a great question if we can shop in bank on nine, why not vote online? Well, elections actually have surprisingly unusual requirements. An unusual risks which means that online voting would open up the potential for all sorts of new attacks and be really much more risky. But. While we're waiting in the precinct line on November third, our risk reward analysis of mobile voting might take a turn.

That's certainly a turned heads but the bulk of today's campaign features, regular folks and a ton of user generated content milk drinkers were urged to do silly things with milk and boy did they respond people open gallons of milk with their toes jumped into kiddie pools filled with milk and cereal according to the trade paper? Agra. News will this generation's got milk ads do anything to keep the cow's milk train going if the wildly popular ad campaign of your didn't work well. Be Hard pressed to say that this one is a better peashooter. The dairy industry itself is making predictions. They say they're simply celebrating the quarantine induced sales boost. What is true however is that the competition from those plant based rivals is only getting. Over the same twenty weeks that saw a twelve percent rise in dairy milk sales oat milk sales went through the roof up two, hundred, fifty percent. Of course, oat milk sales are still tiny compared to cow's milk. They totalled only one, hundred, thirty, five, million dollars, but other signs point to the continued aggressive challenge from those gentle plant based alternatives. Oatley the. Leading oat milk maker recently attracted two hundred million dollars in investment funding from blackstone and Oprah it hopes to go public next year according to Forbes, and on Monday good Karma, a maker of flax milk bought itself back from bankrupt dean.

Dr. Philippe Friedlich On Pediatric Surgery And Neonatal Therapeutic Hypothermia
"Welcome to medicine. We're still practicing I'm Bill Curtis of course I my friend and Co host Dr Steven Tailback He's the quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care these days he continues to fight on the front lines of the COVID battle in California for which we are eternally grateful Steve How you doing I'm well thank you. It's good to be. I'm sure you've heard of children's Hospital of Los Angeles notice. Hla US News and World Report has consistently ranked the H. L. A. in the top five nationally and the number one pediatric hospital in California for thirty years. Running this remarkable nonprofit children's care hospital is nationally known for Neonatal Research and care that is funded entirely by generous philanthropists. Dr Felipe Friedli is chief of neonatologist at Children's Hospital. He is also co director of the fetal and neonatal? Institute. And he is professor of clinical pediatrics and surgery at the renowned kept school of Medicine at USC where he's published over one hundred, fifty abstracts, Peer Review Articles and book. Chapters Dr. Freedland is a rock star in one of the world's most complicated pressure filled and delicate specialties that include newborn respiratory failures newborn pulmonary hypertension even surgery on unborn babies. Can you imagine welcome Dr Felipe Free Lick? It is an honor to have you here tonight and having me. So doctor. Can you just bring our listeners up to speed on C. H. LA and your mission there? Sharon's HUSK local Sandra's mission is to care for sick children's no matter what their background cultural background or insurance they have we are. Laced to gear for family and children's in babies when there's no other place that could care for them. Are we talking about like one of the few medical specialties that truly couldn't wait for Covid to pause that's a great question fortunately or many children's covid has not been has impactful. They are some babies are insurance that are sick but by four unless we compared to adults we. Are Really lucky so far. So we're not going to spend the whole show on Kovin because frankly I think people wanted to know much more about your specialty, but maybe you could tell us a little about what kind of a regimen as C. H. L. A. Developed uniquely for this pandemic and what are some of the special things that you do at your hospital to manage this. A lot of it has to do with making sure that became screen families in staff when they arrive at the hospital in make sure that they're the environment for caring for the Germans you regardless of the reason why they're in the hospital is is optimal until the hospital has and significant resources to ensure that we screen families and visitors and parents when they arrive psychologically, how do you get your clientele to feel safe under these circumstances that has been Estonia As you can imagine a lot of families or speared to even go close to a hospital. So said, only our data's suggesting that we can provide a safest environment to bring Ren's and care for them, but it is a concern. Certainly, we can see that visit to the emergency room are significantly down obviously a lot of the outpatient clinic. I've had to restructure their environment, but I think that honest conversations with family in trying to make sure that. Children can get the care they need. So they don't have complications from their Biz orders diseases are we tried to do our best to get the message across
Why Lava Worlds Shine Brightly (It's Not The Lava)
"Here. On Earth your best bet for seeing lava is to go to a volcano out in space there are entire EXO planets made of the stuff these so-called lava worlds orbit. So close to their stars that their surface temperatures can melt rock which might sound familiar says space technologists, Mikhail Celo of the University of Tartu in Estonia. So like for example, from speaking we now from Star Wars. Most Kind of like that. But you know without the light sabers scientists had noticed that some of these real love worlds were extraordinarily bright and reflective but why? Maybe this comes from the fact that love is basically a liquid. The smooth surface deflect light like. For example, so I use alone his colleagues did what anyone would do to test that idea they made their own lava. Here's MIT's Zara ethic who led the team when we remove the La from the furnace, you could instantly feel the heat wash over you even from six feet away. If felt like he was standing right on the edge of a roaring bonfire, the crucible, which was the container holding the lava was glowing. So proudly, it made my eyes water it was an incredible experience after producing the lava the researchers calculated it's reflected in both the molten and solid states and they realized that lava. Wasn't reflective enough to explain these bright EXO planets they were seeing instead success perhaps these planets could be remarkable in yet another way we think that lava planets could have exotic reflective atmospheres consisting of silica, which is the main component of rocks and metals like sodium or potassium that reflect starlight and make the planets a purebred. The work appears in the astrophysical journal, and if lava worlds feel very far away and perhaps irrelevant as brought up the fact that Earth too was once covered in sloshing lava early in its formation. So by studying planets around distant stars, we might better understand the history of our own.
Birth of the Urban Legend
"Today I am going to take a look. At myths and one in particular that is huge a myth that is regarded debated by perhaps perhaps millions of people and it starts in Rome. No one could talk about the Catholic. Church without mentioning. Vatican City. Balance City is an independent city state within Rome. Italy is under full ownership sovereign authority and jurisdiction of the holy. See the area that occupies represents the smallest city state in the world coming in at one hundred ten acres with a population of about a thousand. It is ruled by a type of theocracy minister by the pope while the Holy See dates back to earliest Christianity. The Independent Vatican City state on the other hand didn't come into existence until February. The Eleventh Nineteen Twenty nine this is different from the papal that occupy most of Italy from seven fifty six to eighteen seventy. The Vatican walls were built to keep out pirates during the ninth century. Pirates were pillaging much of southern Italy when they sacked. Saint Peter's in eight forty. Six Pope Leo. The fourth decided he needed a little extra protection. A thirty nine foot wall was constructed around Leone City. An area which included the current Vatican's territory gradually when the threat receded. Many gates were opened in the walls. It was shortly after the wall was built but no connection. Eight fifty five to eight fifty eight that a new pope came into power. The story goes that a lady pontiff rained for a brief time in the ninth century. Disres- was a young woman who disguised herself as a man and entered religious training distinguishing herself as a scholar. She rose through the church ranks and elected Pope John. Eight the year eight five. She went onto rule for two years. Her gender always concealed but he flowery holy robes. Her secret was only revealed. Eight fifty eight when she unexpectedly went into Labor during a papal procession. Some accounts say she died in childbirth while others claim that her and raged followers dragged her behind a horse and stoned to death. Either would've been an appropriate response for the Times before you scoff at the idea of a female pope. Let me lay out some facts. The story of a female pope surfaced in the thirteenth century. Chronicles written by a couple of Dominican Friars then in the fourteenth century. She was mentioned in a book about famous women. Her image eventually graced paintings sculptures and Tarot cards for a short time. She was included in a collection of papal bus in. Italy's CNN Cathedral. Some historians dismissed Pope Joan as a myth that we go. Here's our myth citing that her supposed rain overlaps Pope Leo fourth and Pope Benedict third. Some scholars believe that she was had been expunged from the church history. One ancient scholar provides her nationality place of birth length of her pontificate as two years. Seven months and four days. Then there are some who say she didn't die immediately after giving birth instead she was deposed after her confinement and did penance for many years after her death she was buried in. Estonia were her son held the Office of Bishop generally today all sources a pope. Joan are thought to be nothing more than an urban legend yet. There are hints of a female Pope's existence in both art and architecture on the pillars and Saint Peter's basilica in Vatican City seven sculptures showing a woman's facial expression while going into labor can be found but wait in the oldest surviving com copy of the pump typical the official book of biographies of Popes during the early Middle Ages Pope Benedict. The third is missing completely then are medieval coins that show the likeness of Pope Jonas Elias. Yes there are and this is suggesting that she may indeed have existed. Science had proved that these coins are not fake when archaeological find has documents that Pope Joon US crown. Louis the second of as a holy Roman emperor eight fifty six. Although the available evidence seems to cast some doubts regarding the existence of Pope John. It is likely that some would continue to believe that this figure was real whether it's a piece of fiction or history detail. Pope Joan will most likely on until absolute physical documentation surface. It finally and the
EU could reopen borders to tourists in Covid-19 recovery plan
"With many European borders closed because the corona virus pandemic the tourism industry already hard hit he's feeling a catastrophic summer but it's not just tourists are affected business travel has taken a hit to answer the European Commission the executive arm of the E. U. is introducing a rescue plan or roadmap today to alleviate the pressure on the economy I asked our Europe correspondent Gavin Lee how the road map could help the tourist industry the three elements to it basically it's about in the words of the the commission spokesperson at a briefing but I've had the rights of individuals for the need to rest relaxation fresh chat and see families in other countries not depends of course on the situation the commission says of how bad the extent of the virus is spreading whether it remains fairly common there isn't a second spike but what we're looking at the setting out a roadmap for tourism and travel and holidays as of this summer so some of twenty twenty I know what's and a couple of the areas includes making sure of course it's slow it's progressive there will be some kind which told of guys that if you're going on holiday somewhere in Europe there should be an indication of what all the coveted prevention strategies in each country that you might go to what all the hotel strategies and also there will be a recommendation the individual hotels start to advertise put themselves on the market in what they can offer your average tourist and holiday maker in terms of conflict prevention cleanliness ability to to sanitize things like that but that should be part of the you know the new holiday approaches for example of these old recommendations so that's one of them and the other thing is about analogs and number of countries fourteen countries have said that because of the pressure off the adult industry give you an exam well I am in Brussels the main advice here Brussels airlines have axed are they going to access a quarter will jobs a thousand staff will go into the open a third of the allied fleet will go as well all the giving money as cash back for people who need refunds for cancelled flights because of coverage the idea was to give vouchers no the EU commission will push back in the meeting today to say no you can make vouchers more attractive more appealing but that should be fundamentally principle of the rights of of somebody to have the money back instead so that service a couple of elements that are looking at as part of the the summer travel plan today so if you are within the E. U. and you want to go on holiday can you go anywhere this is a really good points on this is there are two words or phrases that you might still hear more more one is social trouble bubble a social travel bubble the second is a travel corridor so for example this Friday the Baltic states already putting the borders to each other so Estonia Latvia Lithuania what's been relatively few cases along with Finland already booked to travel in and out of each other's countries so for example Estonia relies on tourists from Finland forty percent of its tourists come up from that so this is a big thing and that will mean free movement for all of those people the Swiss national broadcast today have suggested that they will announce later on that the internal borders between Switzerland Austria Germany and France would also reopen for total travel between them so the idea is that that you you've got almost a either social bubble of of those countries innocent people in those countries going on holiday that briefly travel corridors was put to the E. U. yesterday by my Danish Coley there's been talk of Denmark for example saying that they've had a few cases could I have a simple flight path to Greece was also a few cases the commission says that will be up to member states but they will not recommend it and they would also not recommend quarantine if you fly somewhere but you should have to stay fourteen days in a hotel they said there should be no need for that with the way prevention for coverage I should in theory take place on the grounds of get home sometimes as washing it
The astrophysicist and immunologist who've dropped everything for COVID19 - Science Interrupted Part 2
"So most of what I did was a combination of data software and statistics. This is astrophysicist. Dr Sam Hinton from the University of Queensland in January Hey submitted his PhD so I worked on Supernova cosmology and that's essentially taking exploding stars somewhere in the universe and using that to figure out how far away they and once you figure out how far away something is and how bright it is you can try and map out the history of the universe. Obviously things that are further away are further back in time because it takes time to get to us so the idea was if we can map out the last fourteen billion years of the universe ended expansion that hopefully we can try and characterize the nature of dark energy and dark Meta. That's my main eight right and obviously that's a problem. That's all about modeling and Statistics. So I created Asian hierarchical models and other sorts of models try and encapsulate all the nitty gritty details. That happened in the universe. In some statistically robust way so just a little way project just a tiny one that managed to consume years of my life. And whether that's because I just wasn't smart enough or whether it turns out that the Hamid actually really is complicated. Well I have opinions on both if only I was smarter. And if only the universe was simpler okay so taking on the entire history of the entire universe right there. So how is this? Astrophysicist and software engineer now suddenly found himself working on another big but totally different problem. The cove nineteen pandemic today on the show too young scientists who have had to rapidly retrofit and translate talents in an unprecedented moment in history. Sam Foreign doesn't shy away from a challenge. If he's name sounds familiar to you. That means you might be a fan of this stamp. Tonight's GonNa play out that I wanted to crunch the numbers for this other man to do it. There's computer I don't know if he's going to go hunt. I didn't even know. Cross was going to play his idol. New Sam was a popular contestant in the twenty eighth season of survivor Australia but bravado aside what use is an astrophysicist in fighting a global pandemic after all as far as we know now corona virus has made it into space yet and that's a relief as poor people on the International Space Station. There's no ICU. Up there what essentially happened was once I started getting serious. Everyone just put out feeling the same. We need help looking at a whole bunch of these tasks and this happened at Uku. Enriches where I work and through the grapevine. People said. We're looking for someone with all these skills and then Sam supervisor happens to be the acclaimed dark energy astrophysicist and TV presenter Professor Tamra Davis She's also passionate about astrophysics people using their research knowledge and skills in non astrophysics domains. So Tamra put Sam's name Ford The first thing was surely there are people that are better suited than me and salmon just accepted a job offer in the US at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. That's a big deal. But when Sam was told more he went back to Tamra and said. Are you all right if I just take months off from my actual normal astrophysics project to work on? This and her response was absolutely fine. Don't worry about it. We'll figure something out. Get on the project and do what you can. It was there was no chance that I was telling this down. It was a way to make a real contribution and astrophysics You know we don't make significant contributions every day to society we may every now and then invent something like the digital camera and was like yes. This is amazing but covet is a right here right now. One hundred percent immediate problem so there was absolutely no hesitation jumping into it so just like that. In a matter of moments Sam's life has suddenly turned upside down. Oh yeah if I thought I had long hours before. There's nothing like the current hours that we have to deal with. Sam is now the lead daughter analyst on a really crucial international project rolling out in real time in intensive care units across the world during this pandemic. And if you've seen the footage coming out of those units you'll know that this is a hellish frontier and what we need damage. Dice seeing young patients patients people of all age ranges. Who are just incredibly sick. And you can even hear now as. I'm walking through patient rooms in the hallway. It just your oxygen the sound of the pulse ox this ventilator later. Dan has joined. What's called ECO car? The global project headed up by trail-blazing intensive care specialist professor John Fraser from Prince. Charles Hospital in Brisbane AIKMAN COD is a mighty Akron Rod. It stands for Extra Corp. membrane oxygenation for twenty nine thousand nine novel Corona Virus Acute Respiratory Disease a card so when your heart and lungs can't do the job of oxygenating your blood and it. Komo machine allows that to happen outside. If you body. We want to know essentially. How can we best help as many people as possible? So we have very finite resources with this outbreak. We don't have an infinite amount of nurses doctors and ventilation equipment that we can just put everyone on so we need to know. Hey if if patient x comes through the door and they look like this but is the best sort of ventilation can give them if we just give them a mosque. Are they going to be fine or is this a patient that needs something more severe because a nurse can generally do around ten c-pap mosques so the very easy ventilation but if they have to actually mechanically ventilate someone help out the longest mechanically and it's essentially one nurse per patient and we don't have that many nurses when we have so many patients coming in so we really want to be able to say when someone walks in the door that they're probably going to need this outcome will be x? Y. Depend however retreat them. So when someone comes in we take the age we take their weight and then we need to know what other things do have do. They have high blood pressure Do they have diabetes? Are they smoke I? What is the condition of their lungs? There's so many things so many different data points that you can gather in the medical world ten thousand different questions that you could ask but what we have in our data time series so for two weeks after people. Get to the ICU. How are they red blood cells evolving? How of their platelet counts doing what we want to do is compare their outcomes and Dan data with other people other healthy people or people that have different afflictions so that we can say this is the thing that's unique about Karina buyers. This is one of the predict is here. That's different from anything else. And it's very hard to get that sort of time. Series data doctors and nurses are working around the clock to keep people alive. They're exhausted so around the world. Medical students are stepping up and being recruited to help collect the data every day. You need to be updating the data. And that's why we need for example medical students to come in because it is such a large burden if anyone is trying to also treat patients on top of that. We have around five hundred different variables from the different patients. And about a hundred of those we have information hopefully essentially every day that they're in ICU. So that we can see how they evolve over time. I can't say too much mall because whilst I have a huge list of variables in front of me things like pro calcitonin. I don't know how they used in a medical context all that I can do generate the reports and then worked with the clinicians in real time to say. What do you want to see? What would you expect to see? And how can I best present these models and this information to you so that you can draw conclusions from it? The urgency of the situation means. This is being taken very seriously. Clinicians are working in the dark right now with this new virus so they'll benefit from a Biegel clearer picture of what's happening for patients around the world. Oh Yeah it's absolutely unbelievable. I've never been involved in a project this lodge and especially in the current predicament. All the usual blockades and the bureaucratic slowdowns that you encounter have just been removed. So we have fifty countries now from Estonia to Kuwait to the United States is coming online the UK Italy Spain strategies coming online now two tons of countries and then each country also has all the hospitals in it. So we've got around two hundred fifty hospitals and that number grows every day.
