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

She is the ceo of johnson publishing company which published ebony and jet magazines johnson publishing helps give a voice to millions and chronicle the african american experience across the country.

Grubhub tesla estonians national museum of african american history and culture. Linda thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. Thank you for having me carly. I'm excited to be here and sounds to have you here so i think you know the first question. We start with the same one every show. Skim your resume for us. I most certainly. I'm happy to do that. I am still the ceo of johnson publishing company. So that is great and it. Is that the founding company for ebony jet magazines and fashion fair cosmetics all started by my family and for better or for worse i have never worked anyplace else and so i grew up in the business. Grew up in the in the magazine business in the publishing business and also in the beauty business but always surrounded by incredible people great parents but great staff who were very uplifting and all about aspiration and inspiration for the african american community. So i grew up in the business. I went to Born and raised in chicago got my degree in journalism from. Usc came back and got my masters in management from northwestern. And i got my masters in management. So funny i started out full time in school and then i switched and i went part time so it took me longer but i really wanted to work at the same time and i had the luxury to be able to do that. A lot of people don't have that. But i did because i wasn't looking for a job once i got my degree. I already knew where. I was going to be an actually once. I i got my masters in management. I actually became president a company like the very next day. But i do want to stress. One thing that i think is really important here and that is i have worked in a family business but it was not a given that i was just going to step into this role and if you know if you knew anything about my parents it was nothing was given. You've really had to earn it. And so it does seem like boy. That was a really fast. Reject re but This was decades and decades of work. I mean i spent more time at a copy machine making copies and doing all kinds of stuff that you know people do when you start out in in a company. I don't think that was any different for me. Something that people would be surprised to know about you that if not on your professional bio oh my goodness. Let's see on a personal side. I i love to ride. I have horses. I've owned horses all my life so that is sort of my luxury right now. I don't have one. But it's the way i can relax and i studied opera. We do you think. Please don't ask me to sing. But i did. I studied opera for for many years. Took voice lessons and loved. It absolutely loved it. We're gonna dive into the family business. Tell me about your family. Tell me about your parents so you know my parents. John and eunice. Johnson were part of the great migration of african americans from the south to the north. So my father came from arkansas. My mother came from alabama and very different backgrounds. This is so it's really interesting. My my father came from nothing. And when i say nothing his town great people but only six hundred and sixty eight people there. His mother believed in him so much and she just you know the love that she had for him she poured into just him and so for her. The best thing for him was to get out of arkansas arkansas and get education and the way to do that was you know they. They got on the train and they came to chicago. they had relatives in chicago. So a lot of people. With the migration from arkansas people came to chicago alabama. They came to chicago. My mother came from alabama so my father dirt poor came to chicago. Went to high. School became head of the debating team editor. The school paper graduated attended the university of chicago and my mother on the other hand came from a background. Where you have to think about this. Her father was a surgeon. Her mother was a schoolteacher in psalm alabama so obviously black african american back then prominent family. Her two brothers were surgeons. Her sister was a phd professor in english and my mother came to chicago to get her master's in social services at loyola. So now you've got these two converging people now completely different backgrounds you know and and they met ed dance. My parents met at a dance and my father. I remember him saying you know. Ask your mother. You know at the dance. Could i take her whole and my mother said absolutely not absolutely not it. She said. I'm going home with the person that brought me. And so for my father. Being the maverick entrepreneurs salesman was game on. That was
Sahel of a mess: France's impossible peacekeeping mission
"Jihadists are entrenching themselves. Ever further in the suhel continent wide strip of semi arid land just south of the sahara desert. There are former islamic state fighters ousted from the middle east al qaeda associates and a number of ethnic militias. The sahel's hitter ends are far from any city state. Laws don't hold. Public services barely exist last year. Nearly five thousand people died in battles or acts of terror in the region six fold increase on two thousand sixteen. An estimated four million people have fled their homes this week. Sixty world leaders are among those who have gathered online for the paris. Peace forum where the crisis is being discussed. A united nations peacekeeping force has a rim to patrol and to help rebuild the embattled region but most combat missions against the jihadists are led by several thousand french troops. Some of whom are based this gow in mali. Well we arrived in gow by plane then took a french military helicopter which flew at low altitude extremely fast for about an hour to get to this advance base that they've built out there in the middle of the sahel sophie. Better 'cause our paris bureau chief. An extraordinary region absolutely vast nothing in any direction will miss no human habitation. A few acacia trees the occasional goatherd and a tiny settlement. But that's about it and then you arrive in the middle of this dusty zone read colored sand where the soldiers who've made it. All the way from france had just finished a month. Long operation against jihadist. So these were both regular french soldiers but also special forces the most recent of these operations. They killed several dozen jihadists. They seize weapons motorbikes fuel and to one of them just described it. Talk to me that it was intense. There were violent encounters on the ground. This is real proper combat that the french soldiers are engaged in there. And how significant is the french presence in the region. Well the french have over five thousand troops as part of this operation that they called it by far the biggest contributor to any of the operations in the region there is a un peacekeeping operation with over thirteen thousand soldiers but no single country contribute as many as the french do. There are two hundred and fifty british for example due to arrive. Soon there are three hundred and fifty germans there but in effect. What's is obvious. Once you're there is how the real combat operations fall to the french conditions. A tough is extremely hard. The sand everywhere is grueling. And it's risky. How risky last year was the region's deadliest for years. There was a particularly nasty incident at the end of the year when the french lost. Thirteen elite soldiers in a helicopter crash but local soldiers from nizhny. Molly have also been on the receiving end of terrorist attacks. Neo lost seventy one soldiers in one attack than there was another took out fifty from marley. So it's a constant vigilance. And there's a constant sense of vulnerability even for the armed forces operating out there. But why is it that francis chosen to take the lead to to be the country with the greatest presence on the ground. Franz historically has links to the region it is the former colonial power which also causes something a problem now because it gets accused of acting in a sort of neo clooney away and fronts also has permanent military bases out there so it becomes a sort of natural partner for crisis in the past. I think that the french have really tried to change their strategy. This year. emmanuel macron host to summit at the beginning of the year with the leaders of the five signs countries and the idea is to trained share some of the burden to make sure that the french show more supported on the ground by the european countries for example they i saw estonians their swedish officer but also to try and get the regional armies to do a better job themselves and that was very clear in the description that i heard of the operations where they were working really very closely alongside marlon and nigerian forces in some of these operations against the jihadists issue in june macron emphasizes commitment to the operation solo vehicle always mma which party about the the fight against terrorism. But it's also about the return of governance and development for the region in which he wanted to work with local governments that are much closer basis and is that big french presence making any real difference to the levels of jihadist violence in this. Hell when i think it's important to think of it in terms of different regions and where we were so that was in the sort of central new central mari. I spoke to general marquan rate. Who commands the oppression. Can't overall the some offered to trish. She tested in terms of often. You said he was very satisfied with recent operations there. I think the french sense that they've really dealt a blow to what they call a die ashley. Islam state in the greater hara premium capacity results. Iovine underneath the media and the general said they haven't disappeared is but they don't have the same capacity to cause trouble that they did at the end of last year. So i think there is progress in that particular zone where they've been conducting these intense operations. Of course. the problem remains that can operate in one area but they certainly can't operate all over the country and that's where she doesn't remains a big problem and so what prospects for for actually paring back their prisons. I think is incredibly difficult. You know. I think the the french Condemned in a sense to stay in the sahel. The no plans to leave or to withdraw all their forces tool. I mean it's more question of trying to share the burden more the adversity. they're up against these jihadist groups. They are incredibly mobile than a magic they move about on motorbikes and pickup trucks and they can just disappear into the bush in a way. That's for the french forces. It's just makes it very difficult to contain and to target and so it sounds as if the the only option than it is to draw in international help. I mean how. How hard will that be the reds Help on the grounds. The american particular provide ups a crucial intelligence support to the operation. The british operates three shoot. Kelly copters there as well as part of buchan and they if french beccles and troops into combat zones on special forces which is obviously much more declined to start operations but the estonians are there and there are some checks and swedish special forces due to arrive soon so european countries are helping franz. But they aren't at the same time. Exactly lining up to offer these combat troops. And i think franz sometimes feels that. It's doing this job very much alone but the situation you describe is probably not going to be massively changed by a few dozen or a few hundred special forces. Even it's an incredibly difficult situation. The best the fringe show hoping to do is to try and contain the threat to try and secure areas and enable millions to go back to their homes into a more sense of security in some parts of the country. But it's not about defeating the enemy across the entire country. I think that much is clear.
Interview with Elizabeth Debecki
"The biggie on her tended co-star Kenneth Brannagh. While I've also been a huge fan of cans for many years I've seen him. Obviously in film intelligent but I've also seen him on stage lot and I always had this enormous respect cannon thought he was. sort of `can-do everything I was. So we'll come running do everything. He can write direct APP saying dance. It was sort of it's a bit much actually he should leave some talent for other people but working with him. He just has this ability to put you at ease. He's so kind actually and very. very, very generous as the same. But has an ability to sort of keep the energy around the scene onset. Very focused but very alive. And I actually think it's partly to do with his sense of humor which is. Pretty, spectacular I I actually. Once. Waiting to shoot part of the cost sequence, which is so high octane and the emotional car in between two characters in that moment of the film is so dark and it's so there's so much violence in the air in that moment. And we were sitting waiting to shoot a part of that scene and he made me laugh so hard that I actually split the same amount address, and so I could say that Cameron is genuinely side-splitting if you will which he would enjoy. But now he's a joy. The film has scope. The scope of the film what Chris wanted to do? With the movie was sort of create. Of VOSS NECE and an expanse and a sense of. Because the entire world is at stake. In the protagonists mission, we really had to branch out across the Globe and put all those places on camera and because of the way that Chris Works and hate him wanting to always capture the authentic article whatever that is whether it's the actual, the actual country, the actual boat, the actual human. So there's there was a sense of of of when I entered the film knowing that we would just going to kind of. Me Personally and as an artist just have my kind of horizons massively expanded, which was what the experience of shooting was. As I think credit to our crew really because the crew that made this film would definitely. I'm exterior extrordinary human beings, but they worked so hard and we would sort of finish shooting in a country and pack up at nine PM. In the next day, we would all be on this plane and we would travel somewhere else and we would start shooting twenty four hours later and I think the kind of rigor of that. But also the fact that I think really really bonded US travelling that much definitely as cost it really did Sometimes Jane I would sort of meet up in different cities Buran and we would Have like a cup of coffee and Estonian and three days later, we would be having lunch in Italy, and so it was so kind of surreal and bizarre and. A A massive privilege to especially because of. Where we are in twenty twenty when I think back to just being able to travel out in the world and capture that people. But now sort of fantastic we did really because when people see the film, they can be in all those places. She this and I max the only way to go in my book. I Max Cameras. Put simply really make the experience larger than life, but it's also the quality of the film and I think the way that Hoy towel cinematographer shoots and he is really such genius. It just immerses the audience into. The cinematic experience, but I think watching something on amax inevitably. It hits you in a different way. Literally, you access the film in a different way because. It's almost visceral sort of a bodily experience when something is that that huge captured with the specificity of those cameras that I think. I don't think it's comparable really to anything that people will have same before Janet is now playing the near you.
Deutsche Bank fined $150 million over Jeffrey Epstein ties
"Bank has agreed to pay $150 million to settle charges it failed to monitor its relationship with the late sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. NPR's gyms are Oli reports. The bank was also cited for its relationship with two European banks accused of money laundering. New York's top financial services regulator says Epstein was a client of Deutsche Bank between 2013 and 2018. By then, Epstein had served time for sex offenses, and regulators say some of his activities should have raised red flags at the bank, for instance, used his accounts to pay Russian models and girls with East European surnames. And made periodic suspicious cash withdrawals. He also paid for school tuition and travel expenses for girls. Regulators also cited the bank for acting as an intermediary for Danish and Estonian bank's suspected of money laundering. In a statement, Deutschebank acknowledged its mistakes and said it had learned from them. Jims AA Roly NPR NEWS.
No magic wand for business email compromise (BEC)
"Sadly, it's not possible just to waive some magic technology wand and Mike. Go Away is a complicated and diabolical problem but as a company with a specialty in email security per point is expected to at least help its customers and clients get on top of it now. Obviously, a lot of east stuff comes down to training and process and things like that right, so you can't just buy a product and it magically goes away, but there are things you can do as an email security provided to help right. So yeah in this conversation you'll hear us. Talk about about the problem and also about proof points approach in trying to minimize basie or try to make a dent in it. I'll drop you in here. Where Ryan is explaining that be scam is these days aren't necessarily trying to go fix giant paydays that can be clawed back right like there was that facebook one years ago with one stall. One hundred million people tend to notice, and you know they're not trying to do a million small payments, either it's really about hitting targets for just the right amount. He is Ryan Kalemba. It's really more about. About finding a sweet spot in between when it is too large to be easily transferable and too small to be economically meaningful, and what we're seeing now is a Q.. Twenty things like payroll, the version right payroll diversion. If you, if you add up the number of payroll diversion, social engineering attempts that we stop day, and just sort of multiply that by the average pay packet at millions and millions of dollars every day. But. It's those sorts of numbers that become really repeatable and really successful for the type of cybercriminals. We're talking about here. We're not talking about apex predators about something that is broadly democratized across the cyber criminal world, and is available to a huge number of groups operating worldwide. So what is the sweet spot in terms of monetary value? Right like where is the median level that you can do this and not set off fraud. Fraud controls. I guess you know. Let's do a step by step on how to do really good BC right. It is interesting because you have certain groups operating at scale where they really WANNA steal a few thousand at a time because they know that with a big company. That's just breakage, right? They're just GONNA call them at a minor loss and then move on. But that's it. There's a fair amount of them that are a little bit closer to the big game hunting trend to be ransomware side one. I, remember in particular was an organization, basically set up a very very convincing fake version of the contractor that was building a brand new hospital, and they spent months actually going back and forth before they knew a large payment was going to get moved, and then they knew actually how much time they'd have between the payment going through and somebody noticing the payment had not actually shown up yet and they social engineer. Engineer the payment to come across three weeks before the bill is actually do, and then they had three weeks to move that money in as many places as possible and none of that got recovered. So those are the ones and those kind of represent I think the two ends of the spectrum anyone who has as spectacularly unlucky or lucky as a as as what was the the Estonian Diner Lithuanian. They will also Indian guy that went after facebook and Google is probably on the wrong end of that spectrum, but that's just not happening that often lately.
One of the Boston Area's Latino Immigrant Cities Is the Epicenter of the COVID-19 Crisis in Massachusetts
"I I. You know I'm a journalist. I cover a lot of national issues but I'm also you know house live in the Boston Metro area on the south side of the city. You're up on the north side. Chelsea is the for me for a lot of laughing. Estonians Lead Latino Immigrants Section of Metro Boston in a lot of ways I looking at the statistics and seeing happening Can you explain the situation to people that don't under? You know our our our listening to this. The first time outside of Boston and put it into the context. Because I it's the numbers are just startling. They are they are really got it all and unfortunately for those folks who are joining to me and Chelsea a one point eight Square Mile Community. And as you stated it's done in that community that is just north of Boston and he had been an officially declared as having the worst outweighs a whole the nineteen cases the entire state so the numbers that we're looking at is as of the site and again the information. It's teaching still constantly by the time that speaking. I'm pretty sure he's number. Got Even higher but as a black knight part infections late is that a hundred and six per every ten thousand and the so and just to put that into perspective. The member I mentioned we're one eight hundred blasting. The are the second third largest city in the state to just imagine coupling the fact that we have working families that are living in apartments just up to fifteen people in three bedrooms treatment and on top of that we have families that in the fast economic signs have to three jobs just to make an and one of those jobs are either virtually gone so the folks are unemployed and on and on the other end of the also have other guys it in fourteen essential employees. These are folks who are in the front lines. They are working at Dunkin donuts. They're looking at market basket. Starch working at the services area so you have for that are essential workers who it's impossible for them to physically defense and the people that are trying to ask everyone to follow but you follow the physical distance so they stack you You can find it the and then you have other fault somehow completely knocked your job no income and on top of that you know we have been for. Decades has experienced environmental injustice shoes So wearing industrial city that has a high volume of chuck traffic and We're have coastal cities in the air force. So you couple of all of this and later on off and you have the perfect time for a five thousand of of this Epidemic what are your constituents saying. What are you hearing the story before because I do? WanNa talk about the state response in the federal response but I also wanted here with the voices of the community of the same cause. I do feel like for me being here in Boston. You know covering what's happening in the Boston area. I'm not hearing those voices. So what are those voices telling you? And what can you share? Because I think that's the numbers that you reach like those comparible your city. I mean this is I. Just. I'm just. It's mind boggling to think about this so sure from what you're telling you first before we get into sort of the response so let's see now the the experience there's been fighting there's a lot of exciting from my residents. I cannot tell you how many folks call me and me and to me. Facebook packages telling me of how they have been confirmed with survivor. They have been unemployed for over a year. I'm sorry for over a month. They've been unemployed for over a month. They have confirmed that the case they do not have any money to go shopping even before John for their children. She has no idea how they're going to get money. And that's one of the biggest concerns here you know. And not and not only my family's on the ensuing destroy them the trauma and shrimp farm our dispatchers who are taking these calls and taking these cases are also go into emotional breakdown when they hear The Need for money for the The the need for some families can't see them doing their chiefs. Get Emergencies Actors. They their kids. Which is true of freight is only out and spreading the virus. So again like it's heartbreaking and doing the best that we check on our end but we need more veteran wild and the city is under voluntary. Twenty four seven lockdown right now. Is that correct? That's our people Our understanding the the I mean are people you know following it or I mean I I feel Zaidi and then getting that. It's kind of like Whoa. I mean I feel like bishop happens like it literally happened. You know and you know people are falling Massachusetts. Although I think you're right I think when you have more people that are essential workers that are working in industries. That are feeding us in our. You know doing other things and taking public transportation and coming back to dense population. All the ingredients were there and it seemed like no one you know. We shouldn't have been surprised as as people in Boston that this is. What's happening People now you know I I think taking it seriously put tyrod or their language issues. Are Their immigration. Now is like what what did give me a more of a picture because I know there's a response. I never thought about the response that I I also think people don't understand can there? Yeah you know. There's y'all yeah people Boston. So a little bit more the for their cellular energy so and then you go back to that The leasing why city manager trump and see no decided. She's making twenty four seven because don't WanNa be political. Be and fog maybe blowing up all their population right. So that's one of the key things right so I know that other things they're doing is that they see waking the curfew. They are giving them a ticket for two hundred dollars is. Here's the penalty for chased. But again you're getting community that is real incomes who barely has money to afford luxuries is they're out of their jobs for listing want. It should be picketing folks three hundred dollars penalty for being outside and not falling curfew hours. So what we're focusing on is coming in. He emphasizing that and and I thank you for stage to continue this important dialogue which is getting very serious and as much as we are. Afraid to be alarming. The numbers are alarming. People are dying I last night because nothing that and we want that number to stop but he then you know my mom personally. She's a factory worker. My mom works. I think we'll hop factory and she has to go to work every day. Actually thirty in and you know she. One example of the other example appear in in Chelsea family has to choose between. You might go to work so I can get money and food on the table and and save a little bit team. Nice Munch or stay and a lot of folks who have to work as mentioned the happy. The public transportation is virtually honestly suitable to be physically spent in the
Another Peace Plan for Israel and Palestine
"This White House is certainly not the first to offer a proposal for resolving the nearly eight decade conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and judging by their response so far trump's proposal will likely not be the one to resolve this issue. That has been vexing. American officials and much of the world since the nineteen sixties. The understand understand why solution has been so elusive. It's less essential to understand the specifics of the current plan on the table. Then it is to understand those things that the Israelis and Palestinians Estonians have long considered to be at stake first. Israel's chief concern is its own security not only from conventional military attacks at the hands of its many hostile neighbors verse but also from terrorist attacks at the hands of non-state actors like Hamas a second but just as central concern for both players in this conflict is the borders. There's and the nature of a Palestinian state third concern is the status of Jerusalem specifically whether it would be an undivided capital of Israel or divided lighted between both parties. And finally there's the question of what's known as the right to return namely whether the estimated four million descendants of the Palestinian Arabs CBS who fled. What is now Israel and the aftermath of the nine hundred forty seven partition and subsequent? Wars should have a right to return not only to the West Bank but also also to pre nineteen sixty seven Israel. Obviously the questions of where to place borders and who ought to be considered security threats are interrelated concerns and making this already Herculean task. Only more difficult are the Israeli settlements on the West Bank. The Palestinian harboring of bad actors and a history of to put it mildly hatreds and distrust. The trump administration's plan is formerly known peace to Prosperity A.. Vision to improve the lies of the Palestinian and Israeli people. People it runs fifty pages offers very specific proposals. I it rejects the right of return a concern that's essential to Israel because of the potential influx flocks of millions of Arabs that threaten its identity as a Jewish state and homeland. This on the other hand makes the proposal a non starter for the Palestinians. Second the plan would award virtually all of Jerusalem to Israel while designating Abu d say village bordering Jerusalem to be the capital of the Palestinian state. Third the map in the plan details the contours of the Palestinian state. Granting to the Palestinians about seventy percent of the West Bank plus Gaza in parts of the Negev desert however the current Israeli settlements would remain also according to the plan. The Palestinians would not be permitted their own military. They'd be forced to renounce violence and disband moss in exchange for this step toward Israeli security. They would receive fifty billion dollars in economic assistance. It's over ten years. How has the peace to prosperity planned? Been received well Dr Jerry. McDermott Anglican Chair of divinity. School told Christianity today this. This was a realistic opportunity for peace. He also noted the significant Arab support for the proposal including UAE. Amman Bahrain and Egypt Gitte Joel Rosenberg. Co founder of the Alliance for the peace of Jerusalem told Christianity today that the plan was generous to the Palestinians while giving the Israelis almost everything they wanted wanted on the other hand others including Arab Christians disagreed Dr Salim Mounier of muscle ministries which promotes reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians based on biblical principles told C.. T. that no Palestinian leader can accept this deal because it doesn't meet our basic needs another Palestinian Indian evangelical. Daoud Kutab said that the plan sounded more like a surrender dictate than a peace plan and more importantly the Palestinian Authority's President Mahmoud Mood. A boss called the plan a conspiracy and added we say a thousand times over No-no and if this plan is conditioned on the Palestinians bringing Hamas online. Well it's just difficult to imagine that happening to paraphrase a former Canadian prime minister if there was ever a place with too much history and too little geography. It's this part of the Middle East. That's why it's difficult to imagine that this plan will succeed where others have failed still. It is possible that it could be a step. Even if a very small one in in a better direction so we continue to follow the dictate of Psalm. One twenty two and pray for the peace of Jerusalem
Nihaya Jaber a strong lady
"Could you make a noise oysters to be sure. We know you're there. I'm Ken Gordon. I run the refugee voices Scotland podcast. It's a personal project of Maine. We've been running for two years now and if your subscribers listened to for thanks it's really cool that we meet people who've actually listened to it so this is a co production between refugee. The Voice Scotland University of Glasgow UNESCO chair in refugee integration through language and the arts and refugee for the wonderful facilities. Ah Hijab or are you doing nice to meet you you're looking PhD student at the University of Glasgow. You're also an intern for the Palestinian Estonian Arabic online project. Yeah the higher. The one thing that we always do in these podcasts is just ask people. What's on their mind? What's on your mind today? In one hundred years ref we shop the first thing. That's in my mind that I'm happy. It's sunny today unlike yesterday. And the second thing that's in my mind since we're talking about refugees there's a I tell you a little bit of history. Yeah so I'm Palestinian from Gaza and I'm not sure if people know about the whole Palestinian Israeli conflict but it it started like in one thousand nine hundred forty eight and because Israel started their estate created their states. They had to expel people from their villages. When I say people I mean Palestinians who are living there for a long time and as they explode those people those people started to move to other areas and then eventually they became refugees? So Amirah Fiji Ah in one of the most populated refugee camps in Gaza. My parents are refugees. Migrant parents are piggies so it's like like three generation of refugees and you can tell like how many years we've been refugees and They you were Help those refugees get you know the main basics for the lives I with my grandparents and they give them tens and then people people started to build their own houses. Because sometimes when I say that a refugee and I live in a refugee camp I people will be like all and then I would. I don't understand why they they say that because in my mind it's not a big deal because a normalized and internalize allies in me. But then I started to get to know that even a refugee. It has like Norman normalize idea in people's mind that just that person and who lives in a tent. Well it's true for you know other crisis but for Palestinians. Just we tried to you know to move on on and I don't live in a tent. I live in house to floor house. So yeah this is me as a refugee third-generation third generation refugee. So what I want to talk about as well I said that everything internalized in me and then because I loved my I hope my whole life there. My parents live their whole life there so I didn't see anything different. That would make me compare between what I live. And then how other people live so I got a scholarship to get my masters in the USA and then spend their two years and then it was really really like the first two years of my life. So when when I when I started to have I was full of energy. Discover the World Meet New People and all these things and it's worked and then by the end of the second year I had like my own community. You know my friends and then I had to leave back to Gaza so I knew it is going to be hard because I will not see my friends But it turned out. It's not only because I will not see. My friends is because I will have something to compare to like. What's going on in Gaza and what what happened to like all these experiences I had in the USA so going back to Gaza? There's no no insecurity. There is no stability. There's no electricity. There is no access to clean water. Sometimes we wouldn't have have water at home like even all these things I wouldn't I wouldn't imagine that they're that bad but because I was exposed to new new environment that showed me what what are the basic rights that people from other countries have and we don't have so and and some of these things like for example access to water like I didn't I didn't I didn't say I didn't get it until until one of my friends pointed that out to me because in Gaza We get water for three or four hours a day and and during these hours we have we have like engine that will push water in big tank and sometimes would feel a lot of Like would fail the bathtub as well so that would have water to clean or do all these things add. It was normal to me. You know I didn't know this. This is bad but when when my pointed that out to me I was like. Oh yeah this is not right. You know so Besides there there were there would be a lot of collisions in Gaza. Like Bombini. And you know really horrible not not like war were just like is collisions. So sometimes I would go to work and then I would just freak out because there will not VC's fire so there would be skeletons and you know. Sometimes they would boom car and then just just in my mind that maybe AH car. I'm in maybe this guy in this tax is targeted. Maybe I'll die. And then you know just I go to the work and I go back mccomb and just the same thing until ceasefire is announced or whatever it is so yeah it was pretty hard like going going back after the. US spending two years in Gaza because it made me feel like how unfair the world is and help people. Just don't appreciate she it all these things in their lives you know and then After spending two years in Gaza enduring all these things like I was with my family and would live the same things but it affected me differently because I started to think that this is not right. This is not supposed was to happen so now I got another scholarship from the British Council to get my PhD. And let me tell you one thing. I think I started to recover cover from my reverse culture shock going back together up. Maybe like I started to feel that going back to myself. Maybe like a month ago because I think in my first year I wouldn't be like I don't know it say. I felt that I wasn't right because it was recovering. But now I feel I'm almost there. I started to recover.

Why Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace
"Over the past half century. Israel has built hundreds of settlements or Jewish enclaves on the land it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War of nineteen sixty seven seven. This land claimed by Palestinians for their future state which is why settlements are seen by many as an obstacle to peace the president of over four hundred thousand Israeli settlers living in the West Bank basically means that a Palestinian state cannot come into being is our Israel correspondent respondent Mason Jerusalem. Many of those settlements are stuck in between the main Estonian cities and towns so contiguous state cannot exist as long as they're there and their presence also means that it was obvious that so in effect they ensure that the military occupation of the Westbank continues the the announcement came just ahead of a key date in Israel. Today is the deadline for opposition leader. Benny Ganz to build coalition bowling. September's inconclusive election Prime Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu has already failed to form a government. Both candidates praised the trump administration's change in policy but the decision was America at odds with much of the international community. The international consensus regarding the settlements has been there in contravention of the full Geneva Convention. Attention which basically says that transfer or settlement of an occupied territory by the occupying power is against international law. And that's been the interpretation Shen of the Geneva Convention regarding Israeli settlements by most of the leading legal experts. There are some dissenting views of. Israel clings to those dissenting ending views in building the settlements. But that's been the broad consensus for decades now and so in that sense Mike Pompeo's announcement came as something of surprise. Well the competitive management didn't come as a surprise because certain elements within the administration were very pro Israel and pro the settlement lobby chief among them the US ambassador to Israel. Israel David Friedman who before becoming a master was both trump's bankruptcy la and financial backer of the settlements. They have been trying for the past three years to get a clear statement out of the administration saying that American doesn't see the settlements as being illegal and it has to be noted that in the past also the Reagan administration. Distraction made similar statements. So it hasn't always been one hundred percent clear what the American position on this has been. US public statements on settlement activities. In the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. The Carter Administration categorically concluded that Israel's establishment of civilian settlements was inconsistent with international law. However in Nineteen eighty-one president? Reagan disagreed with that conclusion. And stated that he didn't believe that the settlements were inherently l.. Legal actually most of the American administration's haven't even talked about the legality. They've called the settlements an obstacle to peace instead of diving into this rather controversial legal question so in a sense this kind of puts a finer point on kind of formalizes. Something that from the American standpoint had been kind of informally the case. What has been the case over the past three years? Because the trump administration had been very ambivalent towards the Israeli settlement activity previous administrations had condemned settlements especially the first Bush administration tried to limit funding to Israel while the tantamount building was going on the trump administration and some of its representatives have been much more friendly towards the past two years. The trump administration has made a series of statements and actions regarding the Israel Palestine conflict back in December seventeen nineteen. They announced that they recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital that in a few minutes later move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A few months ago we had the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. And in between these. We've had a number of steps. Was the Palestinians. We had cutting off of aid various Palestinian agencies to the United Nations nations agency which works with Palestinian refugees the closure of the Palestinian mission in Washington. All these things have put out a very clear signal where the trump administration restauration stands in the conflict. And even the timing of this announcement just a couple of days before the deadline for Bennigan's to form a government. Do you think it's connected to the current political the turmoil in Israel not directly connected to the current political situation for two reasons festival. It hasn't been times as some of the previous gestures were to help Out On the eve of an election other convenient junctures it doesn't seem to have been closely coordinating with Israeli government. That seems to have been something. which was it was very much an internal decision of administration? And do you think it's significant that it was Mr Pompeo who made the announcement. Well that's probably more about American politics in parents trying to show that he's not trump in many ways and loyal to some of trump's closest advisers. I think pump is also looking beyond the horizon of the trump trump administration and shoring up his own political bias. Perhaps his own run for the White House and this is a popular move among voters who he would also be relying upon one day if he runs for the candidacy and for the White House himself and now that Mr Pompeo has made this policy reversal. What do you think the immediate impact will be the speaking? Both Israeli officials Palestinians. No one's expecting an immediate impact even though they've been promises by Netanya before the last two election campaigns of going even further annexing parts of the West Bank. All those plans on hold because it doesn't a political deadlock there's no coalition in Israel. We have Netanyahu position bet against both failing instigate a majority Israel has been building settlements or the past fifty years regardless of what the administration positions being and on the Palestinian side. They've lost lost hope in anything. Good for them coming out. The trump administration long ago so for that. This wasn't a surprise. And they're facing their daily challenges whatever someone is saying in Washington it material to them but what about the prospects for grander scale change for the notion of annexation or in the other direction a meaningful peace process so the impact is perhaps lung It won't change anything the next few weeks and months. But when finally new government is formed in Israel. If it's a right wing government then the impetus to go ahead and AMEX parts. What's the West Bank will increase? Because now they seem to have a green light from the administration and even if the new government will be more central government under Benny Gansel some other interests lita. Yep It'll be much more difficult for them to justify so these ready public making any kind of changes on the ground baptists manning so because people will say them but the Americans okay so why make any of these changes if the settlements especially the ones which are deep within the West Bank or allowed to continue to grow that means the majority patient won't end either and any prospect of Palestinian statehood will be non-existent loop Israel basically in charge of one st with millions of Palestinians without optical rights and that's not the democratic say that Israel claims and takes pride in being so it's a situation which really is ready to have a solution Lucien right now and if anything compare announcement has made a solution for that even more remote
Racing's Drug Kingpin: Randy Lanier
"Let's get into the story of Randy Lanier the weed racer yes. Yeah Oh Randy. Lanier was born in Lynchburg Virginia on September. Twenty second nineteen fifty four. His family moved to Broward County Florida when he was thirteen. There were few things a good old boy such as randy loved more than pot. He would frequently sneak out of school just ahead to the beach and smoke smoke. Do by the age of fifteen. He was selling pot to his classmates. Even after he dropped out of high school he would continue to sell to his. GED Randy would say honestly. I didn't even think about it as drug dealing it was just a way. Okay for me to smoke without having to pay for Kumon tally. When did you first smoke? Pot Yeah Probably fourteen fourteen I think at that point I was too afraid of it because like there is on on my way to school. There is a tunnel that went under a freeway. Go through and like that's where like the the Estonians of the burnout so by smoke and they all kind of frightened me a little bit rightfully so they were kind of rough kids but I I it was never about that in high school. I thought like I think looking back on. It was pretty like dude intervene. Kinda like weird. I couldn't wait to smoke pot. Yeah Yeah I would've smoked pot way earlier if I were popular enough to have any friends. Yeah like years later I realized tons of kids I knew were smoking weed and they were like totally cool but it was just like those tunnel. Kids'll uh-huh scared me away from it is the first time I smoked was in college On top of a parking garage that was across the street from our dorm And of course like it was out of an apple. Of course yeah I think everybody's I Branches out of an apple and of course it didn't have any effect act on me and then the second time it did me and my boy tyler went back to our dorm room and we did freestyle raps over McNamara. She's a few hours. That's that's the way to do it. It was very sick. I mean when I was a kid like we'd culture was just so much it was just painted in such a different way. Yeah you know like it's fly out of lax with weed in your pocket. They were like we don't care some of these stores. La Look like the frigging apple store like men and it's crazy and it's like it's very convenient and you don't. You don't feel weird about buying pot but I feel like I definitely like missed out on like that. Like illicit elicit like. Yeah I used to smoke such crappy pot but the fact that there are people making billions of dollars off a weed right now and still people serving life sentences for possession national or selling is a huge problem that we should address maybe an another another day on another episode pats anyway it by the age of Nineteen Randy began working for construction company where he continued to sell it. Because he's not only a jug. Dili's Kinda just like a lazy like he's he jug dealer because like I don't know who's round man overtime it's clientele grew increasing the size of orders as well as prophets as sports illustrated. PUT IT in time. Joints turned into Baggies baggies. Turned into bag bags turned into bricks. rix became bales ails sales of a push. teed Johnston the BAGGIES. I can't do it slow anyway. Now it's hard. He's very good to the one thousand nine year. Old Randy drug dealing was the most promising opportunity yet he said. Let's just say I was definitely making more money. Then I made Neilan boards all day. I believe one of his last purchases on his first I just want to point out. How like good? This dude is at just sound clips. Yeah you know like yeah. Very romantic quotes. Yeah yeah one of his first purchases with his newfound wealth was a twenty seven foot magnum sports speedboat. He purchased for eighteen grand. Initially the boat was only. I used recreationally. He would jump waves and just you know cruise around there but before long an associate recommended he put that boat vote into quote commercial. Use like selling ice cream from the boat. James I doubt it. Oh I looked up these magnum votes This speedboat in particular is like so cool yeah just long as hell low fast. They're sick this guy's cool and and just like that Randy lanier move from being a low level drug dealer to a mid level trafficker in the timing. Couldn't have been better It it was the early nineteen seventies. It was a smuggler's Paradise Man. It was like the pirate days trafficking into the US specifically really from Columbia was still unknown. Threat that would soon become one of the biggest drug crazed sees in US history and a new exotic strain of marijuana called Colombian Colombian gold was being grown on Colombia's Guajira peninsula and it was beginning to flood the American black market. The arrival of Colombian gold fueled fueled a boom in America. Known as La Bonanza meeting. Better the mayor which loosely translates into the marijuana. Bonanza guys we gotTA Marijuana Bonanza Hands. Of course Florida was the best place to import such a large amount by the early eighties. About three quarters of the United States marijuana supply originated from Columbia Razi in his first mission. He he went to the Bahamas to pick up one ton of marijuana. So you're gonNA see like yeah I'm going to grab my boat to the middle of the ocean and pick pick up a ton of pot two thousand pounds a week it's crazy Randy showed up to these specified coordinates in the middle of the ocean and another other. Bigger boat would pull up next to them and the the we yeah. What's up guys like? And they transferred all the bales from the big boat into the whole of Randy's speedboat and then he would get the hell out of there all right thanks town to go back toot sweet right. I picture him just like wearing a cowboy like no shirt gene short. I'm imagining as not to become a in in the story from now. Yeah I think that's a good way to imagine This this technique was super common speedboats. Like Randy's were fast enough to evade the long long arm of the law and it wasn't difficult for smugglers to slip up the intercoastal waterway and hide a labyrinth of Florida swamps. According to a report one trafficker could earn a return investment of around one hundred fifteen percent so it made sense for randy to do this with a speedboat and naturally after you know I mean it sounds like this is like trying to get people to do it which they probably were you can get a return of one hundred and fifty. Why don't you come to this lunch at the Holiday Inn? And I'll I'll tell you all about a way that you can get up to one hundred and fifteen percent return on your investment with one Boron. We'll even Lisa the boat. Yeah very reasonable reasonable interest rates. Naturally ready was hooked. He did this trip. He did this kind of trip often. In spite of risks linear loved tempting fate eight and living on the edge of disaster for Kenny loggins lurk he had multiple close calls including one time almost sinking his boat as it was way down down so much by marijuana despite everything he frequently alluded capture by the US coastguard and received a twenty five percent. Cut of his delivery. Delivery seems like a lot. I mean he's taking all the risks to me. That's I guess he was just like a runner yes he wasn't dealing to the public anymore. Now he's there's like a guy from the ocean is a post mates for we. Yeah in a in a way. Yeah do you post Manson anymore. I use post meets way too much. I try to be waste free But you know sometimes you just you just want to pack of EMINEM. I know in one thousand nine hundred ninety six at the age of twenty two Lanier married his high school sweetheart. Pam uh-huh with her help. He opened a jet ski and boat rental shop near Fort. Lauderdale as a front to launder the money and present an air of legitimacy gene under the guise of a boat rental shop he soon purchased a sixty five foot trawler. I looked. I looked up with these are trawlers are basically really big boats votes There could be like recreational trawlers or fishing trawlers. Like just imagine a sixty five foot boat milk you can look it up Your you'll probably imagine the right thing. It's a big big boat with low. Yeah he got one of those with Got A lot of room. That's bigger than I thought. Yep Yep sixty five feet him with a boat this thing that is a thick composed he could smuggle directly from Columbia. No longer having to stop open meet a A mothership down to the Bahamas with each delivery he made with a sixty five foot boat he could smuggle over eighteen thousand pounds sounds of pot into the US that allowed sweet sweet dreams Enoug- soon despite massive quantities. He has now smuggling he was always smart smart about it. Never visiting import twice in a row. He would load up in the port of Santa Marta in Colombia and he would either doc in the US in in New Orleans San Francisco and sometimes bridgeport Connecticut Far Ways up the coast. Yeah I mean just looking at those three locations locations that's a huge spread Like some of those trips could take like a week. Some of them can take like three weeks to get there. You know that's crazy. Yeah smuggling muddling much like racing and comedy is all about timing Lanier loved loved the adrenaline rush of almost being caught doing something so illegal but he needed more one day while visiting an auto show that was taking place. Within the Miami Ame Convention Center Linear stumbled upon a booth that was sponsored by a local driving club. He immediately realized that racing would give him the high he needed and impulsively possibly signed up and that is when the racing career of Randy Lanier started in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight at the age of twenty four to the guys. I'm twenty six now. You don't even own one boat. I don't own a boat. Never smuggled shifts this dudes in his third career now. Yeah he started out as like get drug dealer. And he's a drug trafficker now owns a boat rental company. That's three and now he's like you know what man I think. I'm going to give this race car driving the try. It's awesome randy bought in nineteen fifty-six Porsche three five six speedster for seventy five hundred bucks and competed in the production class races at the SCC a southeast regional championships. Although he had no clue what he was doing he was a natural with each race. He proved drastically eventually winning the e production class in nineteen eighty at age. Twenty six. How old I am? I've never won any production class. Some feeling inadequate inadequate. But that's fine

"Let's let's come back into this you. I I know what I wish that twitter would integrate it in. I feel like twitter is it's doing harm to their people by making it easier for more people to get the blue. Check mark an unclear about what the blue checkmark means. I mean like it's it's so much important. Mike I think I don't don't even have to describe it so much teeth at how much we bought them to this really certain people think of Mike Catt twitter and all the things things I can imagine now going off on a terrier. There was somebody who is e mailing my past guests saying. Can I please use your software for free. There's no Kokoshin in email. They were sending messages. You can send a message on twitter created an at and whom Warner at Real Andrew Warner right on twitter start sending messages to my pass. I guess tank. Can I please use your software for free. They'll start doing it and there's no fricken verification and that's the problem. These are small issues that hit us a lot and we just accept does the price of doing business in the world today and there's more to it than that but I think count. This is actually used problem. You see all the great cough routes. Everybody are are connected to some extent S- and have been having dishes with a critic Garforth when the award point to spend step ghost wrong hands is two hundred billion per year and then you see how it's being fixed so far it's been by Judge Roy Moore and then we have to cover up there then meazza analyst people have to call up a business like fraught costs actually right way of getting boastings lines no meadow in which sector we look at it's it relies on the proven identity. Y- This is another thing we talk about you. There's a cost of everything that we buy online in that cost is what it takes him any factory another part of it is like the people behind it and then apart is the fraud that they have to factor in because they have to pay that and and they're passing it on to you. Let's come back then too so you started going after banks. Banks became your first clients. Yep because you were in Estonia. There's an advantage with banks which she's wet which I don't know even the waitress to Houston underage. I idea I understood. That asks have a problem that we have like stone.

How did shape your Your Business shaped our business locked in them so getting beer customer section was so he shared because then then taking the customers who never used identification before you had to give them an understanding our everything folks at at the time and the way we've been doing our seats has been slightly different than the these states databanks we've been under promising but they were delivering at and this is how we started off getting more and more action and that Tenda Freebie gave us an understanding that okay we can be to national company so so much faster and having to strong support from family do and great this monster so it's an example of something they did. They did that helped. You get my customers. I seed was APOPKA. Freely starting to build up our night again restarted wind up are are we are interacting. We have no VIP citing in a way we have some but who are really really focusing by being business business custer. Okay gave this in the background. The website wasn't doing much. It wasn't doing much then. We worked on getting so much more things I I can say it's not that they're saying like on on couple of things that we supported us. It was a bigger picture that made us made us seat to the position that okay we can really pull it off. Did they start introducing you to people at the method they did and they helped you get lines yeah and that saying that you're Y combinator back custom company helps you too in St Stephen's otherwise serhiy.

You're not based here. You're based in stone and actioning some people love when you think it out millstone now we have this and yet entity e-voting goal those thinks around us all ready for fifteen years so then advantage we have the beacon who've been billing up from Estonia it gives us unfair advantage of having the domain no-ho out to put it to the globus gay say I. I'm embarrassed now but I had no idea I I didn't realize now occasionally. Somebody would say something that Estonia is sticking to your computer art interesting this random experiments. We don't understand it. I mean like nick is such a neighbor forever business securite Miami all all the things that the neighbors to get them and I'm bidding up the phone and they were stood to have beaten who doing before and how to beat those things up now okay so let's talk about the city of Berlin right right what are they.

I got it I see it now so basically down sunny to get all the order desperate for one and two wrong transportation up the go mark. They have been away old. Transportation like come wouldn't want map whether you like wearing bike share in-car rain. Okay I see it all. Why did they need to verify lion because is very important in somebody's wanting a car person and and senior having developed Parvez license so things to get something which which very important to get them taste and I mean I have to say they're super proud of this cooperation with because it was a it was a big step towards if you can get the Germans armaments comfortable everyone else everyone else is comfortable. One of the ways that you've got customers was used started to say you would see you do what you'd basically show them that. Their systems aren't working by setting up an accomplished from credentials seed. Go Get example the company that you do that for I know you mentioned the the type of companies as a marketplace that or ridesharing company or what archer marketplace for lifting thick. You sat down for all these things so ride. I turning up and I've used this when I travel. I like to find the local bike in uses local data. They always asked me for picture mighty aperture mighty as done. I mean that Gal for mini. Mini competencies like compliance requirements were but to just to comply relations but in order to comply with regulations it doesn't prevent fraud so many companies have been doing as much as eighty seles possible to buy a regulation say. Take a picture. Id they doubt but it's not enough so so you would go in to what to a a ridesharing company and create fake Id. You're smiling as I say this create fake. Id and then then create an account and then go to them. They look created fake. Id with you.

We are able to also to to to pull the data from there so that they could learn more <hes> but also there is a value for the consumer so if you are a consumer of the bike and then your bike gets sold and then you can track down your bike you're helping them with that nearly as to which one which will you helping clients with just also work so that's that's that's where the company got the where we got the very first customers that they sort of value also in the fact that we have the chief yes inside of the bikes and the the people can track down the bikes which are which are stolen and then we have different deals with insurance companies as well so that if you're white get stolen than insurance company we'll go and pick it up or there's a promise that you'll get get your bike back but between fifty four hours or you'll get a new wife okay.

How The Danske Bank Money Laundering Scheme Involving 230 Billion Unraveled
"Money laundering is the way clever crooks hide individually spend all the money they've stolen in this tale about what's believed to be the biggest money laundering scheme in history. It involves nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars a very suspicious money from Russia and the former Soviet Union that was funneled into the western banking system, right, under the noses of major banks and regulators in the United States in Europe, who either facilitated it or turned a blind eye at the heart of it is a whistle blower, who found one loose thread in decided to pull on it. Howard Wilkinson is an Oxford man, cautious prudent and a bit of a stickler after his cover was blown last fall in a newspaper article is the person who uncovered the scandal he has spent much of his time wandering the British countryside. Trying not to be found. A whistle blower in a case involving two Russian money. It's not a good place to be you're still concerned, you've got to the very nature of the people who want to learn the money, probably means that not the so you want to go down the pub and have a pint with, but he did sit down with us and told his tale about a financial crime. So big it's hard to fathom and number that's reported for the whole thing over the six or seven years is two hundred and thirty million dollars of suspicious, money one Bank one Bank, two hundred and fifty branch branch Wilkinson had worked. There is a mid level executive for dansko back the biggest financial institution in Denmark, and one of the most respectable banks in Europe is head of markets for the Baltics. He worked out of a branch into Lynn Estonia, the former Soviet Republic now a NATO member right next door to the Russian bear. There were Cancian's, but also business. -tunities in Wilkinson, eventually discovered his branches. Biggest business was converting Russian rubles of highly questionable origin in the Chris clean on traceable American dollars customers will be calling every morning fleas. I want to sell twenty million rubles by Dulles. We would quote them the price that they would get the Dulles Doulos. basically, that was that was the last part of what we did. And there was nothing legal about that. Frank supposed to check the money coming in. Is it clean on the Bank supposed to check what does the money go in the end and you're saying it wasn't being done? Evidently, it wasn't being done. That's an example liberty understatement. International money, laundering laws require that banks know their customers and report suspicious transactions to thorns yet suspicious. Transactions would turn out to be the vast majority of the business in the banks non-resident portfolio, which was made up of clients from Russia as her by John and other. Former Soviet states, a lot of this money came into the Bank was out the door the next day, right? The next day or you think it was that slow. The customers would every everyday they would sell rubles dollas in that would be what we'd say we didn't, we didn't see where the money went, so your businesses really execute the traits, basically. The clients absolutely, not, not the clients job Wilkinson was assured was being done by a special committee that carefully screened, all international customers before they were allowed to open an account. He discovered otherwise almost by accident when a colleague asked him to help with some paperwork on one of the banks. Big customers, a British company called Lantana trade L, L P to me being British the face place to look for financial information about companies, the public register public apparently this was rocket science. This is rookie science and I wanted to have to pass it. Wilkinson consulted a British government website known as companies have paid while pound one dollars thirty. The company's financial statements and it was a bit strange because it said that the company was Dolman not Dolman means the company hasn't done a single transaction. He knew that couldn't have been right. Having looked Atlanta's banks tape how much Lantana money was passing through the back up to twenty million day, twenty million a day sometimes not exactly dormant is not to the public documents raised other suspicions, when panacea to be a British company in name, only with the postal address it an unremarkable office building in north London that it shared with at least sixty four other show companies with accounted dansko Bank, Estonia and connections to remote exotic places known for banking secrecy in money laundering. So we've got a UK company with a registered office in north London with an accountant, Estonian, Bank, actually, on by Russians and the, the onus of. From the Seychelles, and the mosh alliance to Wilkinson it screamed money, laundering, he explained what he found the people at the Bank, who handled the Russian accounts and was told that it was a simple paperwork. Screw up that would be fixed. Thirteen months later, he heard that Lantana had been told the take its banking business. Elsewhere, among the concerns was money laundering by a member of the Putin family sanctity, Mr. eagle Putin. Who's I think the cousin of the Russian president that are links to the FSP? The FSBA is, I think the success of KGB's some sort of secret police the people running the company have been associated with several banks going bust in Russia and absecon Tim stance. stances eager Putin, the president's first cousin is been associated with other Russian money laundering schemes, but as always professed his innocence, the Howard, Wilkinson hearing, the Putin name was further confirmation that something was wrong to do that. This needs to go to copay in this need to go to that head office. So I made a whistle blowing reports to full, very senior executives including one of the executive board whistle blogger, Paul about what's happened. What seems to be real concerned that others at the Bank might be involved in a cover-up Wilkinson decided to look into three more of the thanks customers that were registered in Britain up three pounds on, I took they counts for these next three and they will false your four for four full. Is it possible that people just could have missed this? Well, then went sixteen sixteen by looking at twelve so of which fifteen with the same address. So, yeah. Some point is stocks being possible to coincidence, not just with the account. So folks, they counsel basically look the same just change a couple of numbers where they will basically look the same when you started doing all this, what did people say to you at the back, nothing nothing? Exactly nothing. People stop calling around to say, is it true that a high ranking executive at the Bank told you, quote. The spank is not the police, the Bank has no obligation to report false clients accounts to the authorities. So frustrated with the lack of action Wilkinson resigned and took his family back to Britain. It would take nearly five years for dansko Bank to come up with answers after printing from the Scandinavian in European press after reviewing more than six thousand non-resident accounts, it, acknowledged that news conference last fall, that it's tiny Estonian branch was the gateway for what may be the largest money laundering case in history. I'd only scratched the surface, however, huge numbers saying to me back in twenty thirteen back in twenty fourteen unbelievably, I just scratched the surface of actually going on in the pike. Do you have any idea what percentage of that money was dirty? They said the almost all the customers was suspicious so far at least eighteen former dansko Bank employees are facing charges in the case including. Former CEO Thomas Borgen in his chief financial officer, the Bank itself faces four counts of violating the Danish anti money laundering, at Danske Bank itself, admits to a complete breakdown of every single internal control. This isn't one or two mistakes. This is a mistake of their entire system over years of which they profited, immensely, attorney Stephen Cohn, who has been representing whistle blowers for more than thirty years. And is Howard Wilkinson's lawyer says dansko Bank is not the only one that's profited from the scheme. Most of the two hundred thirty billion dollars pass through big, New York banks undetected for years. What does that sheer number two hundred thirty billion dollars? Tell you, we'll first off, it's almost impossible, but your hands around you dealing with major financial institutions, worldwide, who are complicit. When you sit complicit what do you mean? The. Moment. You're doing money laundering, and large amounts of money, billions, hundreds of
