"This is something Europe has been doing for decades. I don't really like it when the Europeans do it. I don't really like it when we do it. But who is he to complain, really? They create an entire airplane company out of government large S to compete with our private sector companies. For years, the Europeans have been doing this. The French in particular, to me, is not a really a legitimate complaint from our very good ally. But they're going to, they're going to tweak this, though, to make sure that everyone's included, I guess we included Jeannie the language free trade partners, so as to not have China, for instance, get involved. But they didn't mean to exclude the Europeans. How does this end? Well, you know, it is not sitting well with Macron and most Europeans. I mean, to your point, that he described it at one point as a super aggressive, and he has said it will kill a lot of jobs in Europe and it has to be synchronized and to Lester's point they're talking about adopting by European provisions, right? They're saying you're going to do this, we're going to do it back. So it's something that's going to have to be addressed and we heard John Kirby say that they have every expectation it came up in the meeting today and that they would continue to talk about it, but he is, I think, reflecting as his leader of Europe now that he has become this is the sentiment of the Europeans as they look at both the chips act and as they look at the inflation reduction act and what Joe Biden has been pushing, this build and buy in America. Yeah, it was interesting to hear from Emmanuel Macron on this issue. And a number of senators yesterday said it was certainly not their intention. So France and simply did not contours for an exemption or another for our economy. But simply to discuss the consequences of this legislation. What do you make of that comment Leslie? Hey, we didn't come here, you know, for you guys to change it. We just wanted to talk this out. Well, you know, this is inevitable when the government gets in the business of supporting one certain part of industry vice another part of industry when we move too far away from a free market, we're going to have issues like this. This is the conundrum of centrally managed economies. This is very small compared to what a country like China is confronting, which is why they're running into a bus saw right now. So I think my old school Republican lesson from all of this is, boy, we should really hesitate before we do any kind of industrial subsidies. However, we do them. It should only be of the last resort. Because there are so many unintended consequences of them, and then you get into this micromanagement, which is never going to work out terrifically. Lester and Genie stay where you are as we turn to the rail strike, it's not happening and it's un fem. This is Bloomberg.

"Place if they have dollar denominated debt. I'm wondering in this kind of bizarre world that we're living in right now to what extent you're worried about emerging economies being left behind, even more so than they have been historically. As a result of what's playing out in the global financial system. Yeah, I think that's a great point, right? And it's incredibly challenging. And I think it speaks to like, this is a truly globalized world, and what happens in the U.S. and what happens in Europe affects every other country, right? And I think when you think about your ability to raise capital and one environment and bring it to bear in another, all of these things become extremely complicated. Well, you know, when you think about what's really wonderful, is reading about Stanford and just the coverage that we've done over the years, the experiences that students have, the experiential learning that is such a big part of what you folks do. And I think about the real life events, just this year, the crypto market. You know, how do you guys incorporate that in what comes up in conversations that ultimately may help you guys develop different courses you want to teach or different programs that you want to have here at Stanford. Yeah, that's a great question. We're the curriculum is a living thing. It's moving very quickly. And that's where the practitioners and the lecturers can be very helpful because they can jump in and add topics in a way that the faculty, the academic research market, is a little slower.

And our now having said that our finance professors, of course, are adjusting and talking about crypto and the relevant context in their classes. So we do stay on top of that and students ask for oh, we want to learn about crypto. And we try to add courses or content around that.

Apple Possess More Power Than the Federal Government

"Must take a step back and be honest about what Apple is currently doing, not just what Apple is doing in China. But also at Apple is threatening to do to Elon Musk. Now, Apple has successfully diversified. Their business model from controlling the App Store to making hardware laptops, and obviously they're very successful iPhone. To being really controlling the vast majority of podcast market, there's so many different sectors that Apple has been able to successfully get into. And because of this, there are multi $1 trillion companies, right? Multi $1 trillion company. Apple is more valuable. Than several countries in Eastern Europe. It's just hard to even wrap your head around. In fact, apple is more valuable than I think you could combine 5 or 6 African countries. Just a single private company. Apple has now threatened to remove Twitter from the App Store, effectively ending the company. If Elon Musk continues on his free speech crusade. All the while Apple has just limited and restricted. AirDrop, which is an ability in the midst of protests to share information, share videos, share location, in the midst of all of the anti CCP protests. Right now, Apple, and I say this with a lot of thought, Apple possesses more power than several parts of the federal government. Apple is more powerful in many different ways than the Department of Justice. The Federal Trade Commission. Apple has the ability to involve themselves in an anti CCP movement. And then all the while say that we are going to act like the CCP in America and prevent Elon Musk from continuing to liberate Twitter.

Inflation eases in Europe, but still in double digits

"Inflation in Europe has eased for the first time in more than a year, as energy prices drift down from painful highs. Despite a modest easing, the double digit rate still hovers near a record that's robbed consumers of their spending power and led economists to predict a recession and EU agency says the consumer price index in the 19 countries that use the Euro currency hit 10% in November from a year earlier that was a drop from 10.6% in October, the first decrease since June 2021 out of control inflation is being fed by a high energy prices caused by Russia largely cutting off natural gas over the war in Ukraine as well as bottlenecks in supplies of raw materials and parts and rebounding demand after COVID-19 pandemic restrictions ended.

Winston Churchill's Warning of the Iron Curtain

"To get this visual idea of a curtain coming down, when this speech came out, this was a fault that had been around that you used a mini, this separated the two sides. This iron curtain is a movable object that is coming down in which the east and the west were separate. If you read deeply into the speech, you can see that Churchill's desire, is there not to be a separation. I think he believed inherently that if there would be more cooperation, there would be more influence. There would be more contact. There would be more of the freedom contacting the non freedom that the freedom would win out. Of course, the USSR did not want that freedom. They did not want their influence, the people influenced by free invest you saw this iron curtain is Churchill. So poetically put, crossing the continent of Europe and taking what was free on one side as he talks about and then what was not free on the other. If you look at this today, the concern that is out there among many. Is that we are seeing communist states. Our totalitarian states who are seeing more and more of an opportunity to expand their sphere of influence and expand opportunities. We're seeing them become more closed in. You see North Korea that is one of the most backward, small countries in the world that terrorizes all people for it's living. And a very existence. You have China who's spreading more and more and putting pressure on its neighbors. You see Russia who is taking armed aggression into those to provide a quote buffer, real or imagined in Putin's head to keep the Soviet Union or the Russia and protection. This is seems in 1945 or 1946 in this speech but I believe Winston Churchill laying out the facts. That in a world in which you have divisions of beliefs in freedom and expansion for people that the governments of the world are going to have to be able to cooperate with each other and experience the benefits of freedom, the benefits of a government in which you have a legislative executive you have a judiciary that is on its own and not try to keep people in the dark or behind the curtain of freedom. This is going to be the battle as we go forward. It was the battle then. And it's something now that you hear a great deal of spoken of whether it's in the Ukrainian president zelensky, you hear it with the other country surrounding them, is that if this happens in Ukraine, what is next? Is it simply going to stop here?

How Modern Russia Is Mimicking Post WW2 Tensions

"What we're dealing with is the speech by west and Churchill, what is known as the iron curtain speech it was actually the title sinews of peace, but it's known for the iron curtain and by the very famous words that Winston Churchill used as showing the iron curtain had fallen across Eastern Europe, and that was under Russian control. One of the things that is said in the speech and I want to bring it up because if you fast forward from when the speech was given 1946 in Fulton, Missouri, to now, one of the things that he mentioned in his speech is that Russia would be very concerned about his western border at the time because of Germany and others, but that is very the same thing that Putin and many of the Russian leaders have been mimicking for years about NATO, Putin has decided to invade Ukraine. He's decided to annex Crimea. There's so many things. And he did so with the very much of the effect of saying we do not want to see NATO expanded because for lack of a better term, we view NATO as a threat to our country. And so what was happening now was very much mimicked right after the World War II when we heard this speech to begin with.

I don't care your provenance, they don't care if nation of origin, if you can get a hit, or you're a good person to be alongside in a war. That's all that matters. So it has gotten worse. Oh, but on purpose, they have introduced these ideas into the most, I would say that the American military was the most integrated institution in the country. But I'm talking about, in general, I'm talking about America written large. Oh, yes, of course. All we think about is race. Oh, we think about it. By the way, we have made, I have been here since 1974. We have made enormous strides as a country. Good strides. You know, we, you know, I lived in New York as a kid. Everybody was some things.

Bill Federer Shares the Story of Squanto

"One of the stories that we have to include is squanto. And if I have a few minutes, I'd be happy to share that. Continue. So the pilgrims were religious, but there were other groups that weren't and they were pirates. So Spain had a monopoly on the new world for at least a century, and they had gold from Inca Peru and portobello Panama and they take it to Cuba and ship it and these Dutch and French and English pirates would raid the gold, but they would also sail up the coast of North America. Lure unsuspecting Indians on board, lock them below deck, take them over to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. So one of the Indians that was captured was squanto and the story is he was purchased by some monks in Spain who gave him his freedom. He hitchhikes his way across Europe, gets to England. He's there for a dozen years working, learning the language and the family finds some business that takes him to Newfoundland, right? A fishing type outfit. And then he gets the boat to drop him off at Plymouth, Massachusetts, only to find his whole tribe is dead. They were wiped out by a plague, William Bradford writes that three years earlier, a French ship was shipwrecked off the case, the coast of Cape Cod. Sailors got ashore, Indians never left watching them and bogging them, till they got the advantage killed them all, but three or four maybe sport with them worse than slaves. Anyway, one of those French men must have had an illness and the Indians didn't have immunity and it wipes out the tribe. So sort of in a reverse sense had squanto not been captured in kidnapped. He most certainly would have died. But squanto is living with the neighboring wampanoag tribe and then that fall is when the pilgrims show up. Half of the pilgrims die the first winner. They wouldn't have survived another year. Spring of 1621, walking into their camp is squanto. And you can just picture the conversation. I mean, he's in his loincloth and he goes up and he goes, oh yeah, you guys from London, I used to live there. You know, oh yeah, the pump down on war street or St. Paul's chapel. He goes, oh, yeah, yeah, I know that place. And then he says, oh, this place here, I grew up here. I know this place like the back of my hand over that hill is a spring. And William Bradford says he taught him how to catch fish. He said, you know, that they weren't successful, but he says, don't use salmon. They spawn this river. It's going to be packed. And then he taught him how to plant corn. They said, we tried it. He goes, no, you got to dig a hole, put some fish in, then put the kernel of corn and cover it up. The fish decompose fertilizes the soil. You have a nice harvest. Bottom how to take the corn and put it in a pot, shake it and make popcorn, right? And then he taught him how to go down to the riverbank squeegee in the mud and catch eels and clams and lobsters and then how to catch beaver skins. It took 40 years worth of beaver skins to pay off their debt for the boat ride,

The Origins of Thanksgiving With Bill Federer

"Bill, tell us, why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? What is the story of Thanksgiving? Well, the little background. So the king of England was a globalist. He was a one world government guy with him at the top. The British empire controlled in the Australia New Zealand Hong Kong brisk ionic Canada Barbados Bermuda Jamaica and America. And so America's founders wanted to break away from this globalist one world government king. And so they flipped it and made the people became. And so where did they get this idea that you could rule yourself without a king? Well, it came from the pilgrims and that it came from the calvinist Puritans that came from the reformation and then they got their ideas from ancient Israel. That first 400 years out of Egypt, it's called the Hebrew republic. And it's the first instance in recorded history of a nation with millions of people and no king. And there's around 1400 BC up to about a thousand BC. And it worked because every single citizen was taught the law. And they were personally accountable to God to follow the law. So this period of history is called the Hebrew republic. And these calvinist puritan scholars study this so intently that they were nicknamed Christian hebrews. So in 1517, Martin Luther starts the reformation and for about a century before the age of enlightenment, you have these scholars in Europe studying, not just the Bible in their own language, but this particular first 400 year period, this Hebrew republic. And that's why they taught Hebrew at Yale and Harvard. They were amazed at coming up with a form of government without a king. And again, it's based on this idea that you teach everybody the law and then everybody walks around aware that they're accountable to a God who's watching them watch them to be fair and it's going to hold them accountable in the future.

The end of angela merkel's era german chancellor after sixteen years and the beginning of a new era for german politics as well. This is a very very different election to the ones that we normally see which makes it very interesting but also very difficult to predict because we mentioned it correctly when we look at the at the polls surveys. It's all changing very quickly in may. For example in the spring we were talking about the greens leading in the polls. We've also spoken about the conservative bloc leading in the polls and now we're talking about the social democrats leading in the polls which basically means that it's all wide open and it'll be very interesting to see what happens twenty six so an election with angela merkel thomas.

They knew what they would get from the chancellor so that is certainly one of the key elements to understand what michael meant for germany. We could do a whole program on angela. Merkel's legacy and i would just say that the legacy is very different if you look at it from an internal perspective here in germany and from an international perspective what angela merkel meant for germany and for europe. There are certainly important things that she did this. There are also certain aspects that you can criticize about angela. Merkel's lakers. But i will say mercantilism could continuing certain aspects. I think germans still want a certain stability germans and not particularly interested in any type of very controversial politics. That's not my view of this. The candidate the other conservative block army is seen as a candidate of continuity but it is unclear now if you look at the latest polls to what extent he will be able to lead the conservatives to victory in the upcoming elections something also interesting which is very unusual here in germany. Is that the candidate for the social. Democrats was also the vice chancellor now. The minister of finance in the german cabinet is seen as someone who to a certain extent could follow certain aspects of merkley. In fact he was seen and the front cover of a magazine or long ago. Doing the very famous mack. How right so. There is the iconic gesture that michael developed so thumbs and forefinger join into a diamond projecting calm and strings and continuity as. You've been saying this messaging. It seems surreal. Doesn't it because of course continuity at the moment is not an option. We're coming out of a pandemic we are in the middle of a mass extinction events talking to hunger striker last week. A youth hunger-strike over the climate. He was saying things simply cannot continue as they have done before. I would say there are two key issues when we talk about the german election. There obviously more issues and that's something that we saw for example in the most recent debate on on television there were all sorts of different topics that discuss there. But i would say that there are two very big issue very immediate issues. I would say the first one. Undoubtedly the corona virus pandemic the fourth wave of the pandemic germany's vaccination rate which is still a concern for many here in this country and also the medium to long-term economic impact of the corona virus. Pandemic this something that the next german government will certainly have to deal with on the second one undoubtedly the climate crisis. I'm gonna michael herself stressed that more needs to be done and it's become an even more urgent topic if you consider those recent floods in the western part of germany in in july which really revealed the urgency of the matter. So i would say that. There's no way that germany can continue as it has continued. Maybe some policies will continue from the previous michael era but germany will certainly have to increase its fight against climate change and not only on its own but also with other countries in particular with other european countries that thomas eben german newspapers. At the moment. You're gonna see a whole load of articles about traffic lights and jamaican flags. Can you explain what is going on. What's all this about. Well the interesting thing about about germany's election is that the election does not end the day. People go to vote but it starts when people go to votes so after september twenty sixth we will see the main german political parties transform. Coalition coalitions here in germany have strange names to help people understand them a traffic light. Coalition represents the parties with a.

This summit with two heatwaves in france temperatures have soared to iran forty six degrees celsius or one hundred and fifteen fahrenheit in much of the country one of the responses water. Lots of us to drink and to swimming. But this is not without its dangers. As john lawrenson recounts in this postcard from france san gave me a and you had heard that name before but it was only driving out to that town on a scorching heatwave morning in the old low extinct volcanic hills of the ovarian that it clicked seen combat voire bottles below the road. We were driving along with alone with the name of that mineral water written in big white letters. And in the middle of the loan pavilion with people milling around it. Stop shouted my wife and we pulled off the road down at the spring with some empty bottles that were kicking around at the bottom of the car. We joins one of the happy swift moving queues of people with a slightly giddy. Look the people have when they getting something for nothing locals mostly who had developed a bad worst bring etiquette many come with crates of empty bottles to fill but when they go to the front of the queue they feel one bottle that went to the back again. The water was delicious naturally sparkling but with fine bubbles less aggressive phys than the bottle stuff you buy which has added. Co two sparkling water. That's where we were heading into the med- the rivera even we're swimming family. We swim in the morning. We swim in the evening and every so often when the waters particularly flat we do what we call the exploits and swim from one bay round the headland to the next bay a more back even on stormy days we go muck about waves so when the wind started to blow this year. We hit the water as we always do. There was no orange flag up beach. Flags like traffic lights green for go red for stop and our interest speed up or you might not make it before it goes red so there. We were bobbing around having an all right time on the edge of the water and after a while i had the idea questionable in retrospect to swim out a few strokes to where the waves were bigger and immediately found myself being swept out to sea. I swam towards the beach. As hard as i could. But i was going further and further out. I could see my wife increasingly terrified as she realized what was happening. Pierre my sixteen year old a strongest women me had understood quicker than anyone. He been out near where i was an had felt that current and he swam out towards me. I was exhausted and drinking a lot of water going under every time. Another wave crashed over my head. Most of our memories of visual. I now have a very powerful one. That is tactile hand pulling me towards the beach. I reckon another three minutes out there. And i would have been dead. The lifeguards arrived as supported by my wife and son was staggering. Back up the sand. They've been saving someone else.

So what should you do if you find yourself being pulled by riptide to woods watery grave wave with both hands if you manage that once. You've been seen to exactly as i didn't do go with the flow. Don't try to swim against the current conserve your energy beyond the breaking waves. It's easier to stay alive and easier for the lifeguards to save you all even.

"Accords can't be trusted and that again armed. Struggle is their best option to effectively. We're going back in time. You know stops the hard border. It gives some republicans contemporary justification. For you know it's not just ideological saying this is an abstract anymore. Look with dole's pope's along not border. This is differentiating. What they see as does part of ireland from the rest of under boom as ominous as that is donnelly underscores. It's a minority position on the republican side. And of course a hypothetical for the moment but there's another minority in play here remember. The majority of citizens in northern ireland did not want brexit preferring to keep their status in the eu. So there are signs. Even some former staunch unionists are reconsidering their traditional opposition to a united ireland. At this point the only conceivable option for remaining in the u. and there are those hoping to capitalize on that possible change in attitude among the most prominent the new lord mayor of belfast. john finucane. who's warning everyone involved to watch their words. There's responsibility on all of those. Who are part of this discussion to be mindful of their rhetoric. Ns because i think some political discourse around brexit in particular ryan. The problems that are fears as a result of brexit hasn't been helpful on new day. Brexit doesn't automatically mean that unification will happen. But what i do think is that means that the conversation hoste happen because the conversation has already started not just from people within the north but people all over the island of ireland uncertainty within europe as well because they they look at that possible solution to a problem for those who carry european identity but realize that those rights will be given open the event of day. Brexit finucane's a member of xinfang which has been advocating a border pool hoping for reunification for years already but the prospect of violence is something finucane doesn't take lightly and not just because of his current role is lord mayor. He was just nine years old when pro. British gunman killed his father. Prominent human rights lawyer in front of the family also wounding. His mother finucane hopes. A methodical approach can preserve the fragile peace in northern ireland. What we need to do is we need to prepare. We need to research on be able to be in a position to answer people's questions this isn't going to be about. We have an a flag in front of people visas or panting ally on the side of the ball on asking people to vote for something. When they the wall of the circumstances on brexit i think is a referendum that was disastrous in a sense. That people probably didn't understand exactly what they were voting for or certainly hideout with transpired over three years and i think that's primarily the reason why we're in the mass that we're in so i think all of the all of the questions that people have arrived. Pensions education health system. What their rates would be. What the ship of what division of would look like. I think that those need to be answered on the other side of the fence so to speak. There's still a lot of concern about that prospect over in the protestant neighborhood of shankill road. I meet billy. Hutchinson a belfast city council member from the progressive unionist party people are entitled to vote for for a united under remain part of britain. There's going to be a very large majority who are against whatever. The komo's violence majority of learn is very very dangerous. And i say that in a sense that you think could happen. Hutchinson knows a thing or two about getting caught up in a violent mindset. He served sixteen years in prison for the murder of two catholics. During the troubles. I took a decision at the time. The you don't say this as an exclusive to as a reason. When i watch people been pissed being blown up and children's limbs being put into the plastic bag by paramedics. I felt that the british were up to appear. Hutchinson was among the protestants who voted against brexit. That doesn't mean he'd vote for a united ireland but whereas he wants picked up weapons to prevent it. Hutchinson does now disavow violence as a mean to achieve a political goal. He's just worried about those. Who haven't what i'm concerned about is The people try to use result from brexit or result from the border patrol as an excuse to start another war but things have changed since those bloody days of terror and that could point to a change in the appetite for unification for the youth of northern ireland troubles. These days most likely means difficulty finding job. Add to that changing demographics. Protestants are losing their majority ireland at the same time however the elitist surveys show that most northern ireland residents want to remain in the uk for now but no deal will hit northern ireland hard economically. And that says queens university professor colin harvey is perhaps the biggest reason to start the debate about unification now in earnest. The british government has behaved recklessly and irresponsibly in relation to this region for some time many of us have spent their entire lives and the sense trying to hold things together here but the debate is happening. And i think. I'm just a boring person in the room. The academic thing rather than just pretended as preparedness plan. Let's of the academic studies that's of the forums to. Let's make sure people know what they're voting for. If we ever do these things so harvey is even daringly suggesting publicly that the border pull scheduled for the twenty second of may twenty twenty three. That's twenty five years after the good friday agreement. Creating the conditions for such a vote was approved. Teri schultz d-w belfast keith. Walker in bomb were starting with northern ireland. This half hour on. David hunter is news. Editor at radio in belfast. Just how fragile is the peace in northern ireland at the moment day was. It's always kind of in the forefront of people's minds. um to be honest keith. then i think pieces fragile It's also very cherished but it needs protecting An suppose.

The most of the panels were destroyed. The french diplomat found one on the foot of the parthenon and then shipped it to paris. Where has been on display at the liuw for more than two hundred years. Another fragment remains in athens and fourteen others at the british museum part of a controversial collection which lord elgin a british aristocrat hold of centuries ago in which greece has been demanding back for decades. Numerous negotiations have failed to solve. What's being called the world's most complex and longest running cultural dispute but throughout the years public opinion in the uk around the globe have shifted in favor of the return of the so-called elga marbles and while many here applauded fronts is agreement to lend the prize parthenon fragment back to athens diehard restitution.

Also coming up re-migration high safest syria for returning refugees syrians under temporary protection. Here we can't be sent back to a country at war and you can't deny that there's a war in syria. We're being deported to a war. The stories and more coming up on inside europe german chancellor angela merkel and the british prime minister boris johnson madden berlin. During the week they discussed among other things away forward on britain's exit from the eu. It was boris johnson's first trip abroad since becoming prime minister. Dwi political correspondent. Thomas spiro has been following events on fold in the german capital. at what do the two leaders say. Thomas i would say. There was a cautious optimism from both leaders that there will be a deal in the end. Both leaders stressed that they would like the uk to leave the european union with a deal where the difference is however is how they intend to do that. Because there are plenty of differences between angela merkel and boris johnson when it comes to some of the elements of the withdrawal agreement in particular. We're talking here about the the irish backstop and it seems that both readers have very different views when it comes to resolving that key issue of the irish baxter but in particular i would say that there was a certain willingness to compromise a certain willingness to find common ground. The big question however is how they will manage to find that common ground. I think once that willingness is there are i think that's looking very very positive on that irish backstop which requires but sides to keep an open border between northern ireland and the republic of which of course is an e member state the republic violence. I wha what is going to happen regarding the irish boxed-up well. boris johnson. Clearly stated that he doesn't want that backstop to be part of britain's withdrawal or exit from the european union that he clearly stated. He mentioned that there are problems with the irish backstop. he had previously that. It is anti-democratic that it ties the uk too much to the european union on the other hand angela merkel and not only anglo markle but many other european leaders as well believe that the irish pub is a very good solution. Eliza temporary solution to try and make sure that there is no heart border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland. That's exactly where the sort of key element lies how they will manage to find a way for boris johnson to get what he wants and the european union leaders to get what they want. Because something that i'm gonna markle. Clearly stated is that there is no intention from the european union to reopen the withdrawal agreement. There is scope to negotiate when we're talking about the document on the future relations but that that will draw agreement such which was negotiated between boris. Johnson's predescessor theresa may and european union leaders is a compromise between both sides and the european union. The european commission believes it is a good compromise. Something that i would just like to add many people in united kingdom say yes. They have to go to berlin to paris to try and find solutions when it comes to brexit but from the german perspective it is something that is above all happening in the european commission in brussels. So i'm gonna merckel can say a lot. But it is ultimately up to the twenty-seven to come up also with proposals when it comes to solving these diseases so michael seems to be flexible and open to renegotiating certain parts of it but then jr with other areas. She seems to be inflexible. Am i right in saying that. Yes you are right in saying that. Obviously it's in the best interest of the european union. I think that's absolutely clear to have a deal in the end. The european union does not want the uncertainty that would come with a no deal brexit at the same time they have said clearly time and time again. Different european union leaders are they are preparing for no deal scenario but they are preparing for a deal scenario as well and deal to narrow as well would mean some sort of compromise. Some sort of change because there is no way as boris. Johnson has clearly stated that they're going to accept the deal that includes the packs of as it is right now so anger markle on the one hand says we believe that what has been negotiated is good but at the same time whereas the open to more discussions to see how we can come to a common ground how we can come to a solution to resolve this very tricky issue of the irish baxter. And how has germany being preparing for any scenario. Be a deal or no deal. They had been a lot of preparations. Keith because something. That is as i said.

One thing to keep in mind though is that they both share a common interest. They want to spend more and they agreed that they will ask the european union for the more flexibility on the twenty twenty budget and this create problem because we know that the european union is very very concerned about fiscal deficit and they will pressure because government to lower that if i saw movement and the democratic party at least united on the tissues they want to spend more so that that's why we think that will be a clash between rome and process around the poker so in terms of the government.

Continue to mount. Its past half billion euros already. The ransom was not paid which experts as crucial. But the criminals who stole the personal data are still threatening to make it public. Teri schultz d-w brussels. The italian government has announced that large cruise ships will be banned from sailing into the center of venice from the beginning of august. The move follows years of warnings that the ships caused damage to the venetian lagoons ecosystem and the city's historic foundations and buildings. The decision came after unesco. The un's cultural organization proposed putting venison negative list of endangered world. Heritage will joining me. Is our italy correspondent andrew. Van schaik angelo. It sounds like a victory for locals and activists who have been trying for years to get. These huge ships banned from the center of venice. But does this decision go far enough. According to many venetians it doesn't you're only banned the really big cruise ships like the giants to ones that way more than twenty five thousand tonnes longer than one hundred one hundred eighty meters and thirty five meters. Those the giants that contain up to six thousand passengers. Those are not allowed to dock invent anymore but have to go to porto marghera which is still in the same quite fragile venetian lagoon venetians belief that this is only anesthetic solution so basically venetians wonders cruise ships to disappear completely in terms of the timing of this decision. Now it came. Just before a unesco meeting that could have seen venice being put on a list of endangered world heritage. To what extent did that force the authorities to introduce this restriction on these large cruise ships as you already suggested. The timing is not really coincidental. Unesco already had worn italy they will take venice after the world heritage list if the country will do more to protect the city this friday starchy annual unesco meeting this in china where amongst others. The venice case will be discussed. So i believe the italian government just quickly pass this bill to influence unesco's decision because it would be really embarrassing if the un organization will take venice. Maybe maybe the most beautiful city in the world and it would have taken it off of this world heritage list. You've reported on this issue just last week for inside europe. Can you explain why the authorities in venice have been so reluctant for so long to ban these ships from the center of the city. The answer is is is quite easy. It's an economical issue. Cruise ships take millions of tourists a year to venice. Many venetians own shops restaurants and live on tourism in two thousand nineteen cruise. Passengers spent four hundred million euros in venice. So that's that's the main reason. The downside is that these people spend relatively little money although five four hundred million euros seem a lot but much less than tourists that stay overnight but still use. The city's sewer system is go to the toilet and they trash collection system as they throw away to empty water bottles for example so for the city of venice. Type of tourism is cost for local entrepreneurs. It's their livelihood and That's dilemma caught in. But because of these many venetians live of tourism. The city has been very reluctant to bando ships from from venezuela a locals and activists worried that this new restriction will keep unesco happy but the nothing more will be done by the authorities to to further protect the lagoon under city. Yes they are As i said these these join ships will have to go to porto marghera which is in the same lagoon. We're talking about ships twenty five thousand tonnes and one hundred eighty meters. It means that in the lagoon. The has to be created new fairway which damages the lagoon itself and not to mention the pollution from research shows that the forty seven forty seven cruise ships from the world largest cruise company. Which is america. American company called carnival. Have a ten times more sulfur oxide emissions than all two hundred sixty million cars european union combined in two thousand nineteen more than five hundred ships docked in venice and proably the next year there will be five hundred again but just a bit further away so i think they're worries are really justified. As you've pointed out tourism is vital to venice. The city's really suffered economically during the the pandemic of the locals optimistic. They can bounce back from liz. Yes they are optimistic. But many of them don't want to return to the over tourism of the years before the pandemic in two thousand and nineteen twenty. Three million tourists quit squeezed themselves through the narrow streets of venice. Twenty three million. Only fifty thousand people live in venice Venetians they do want tourism as the city for almost more. Maybe one hundred percent is depending on it but they want different tourism people that stay overnight at gopher dinners on the canal. Not the ones that come in the morning. Bring your own lunch and leave before dinner so to speak quality tourism but the big question is how are we gonna do this man. That's a big challenge for the future. Allah italy correspondent andrew.

Amanda coakley d-w. Zagreb i'm keith. Walker in bomb. This is inside europe so come. Spain's ambitions to become climate neutral by twenty fifty first. Germany has formally recognized as genocide the crimes committed by its colonial troops against the herero and nama people. This genocide took place at the beginning of the twentieth century in. What is now the southern african nation of namibia. Dwi africa correspondent. Kite neighbor is following the story for inside europe kite. Colonialism is Somewhat and neglected chapter in germany's history. I mean even germans know little about their colonial past. Can you fill us in. yes keith. Unfortunately german colonial history is seen as something of a forgotten and in some cases neglected post and this could be to do with the fact that german colonial history probably was a little bit shorter than that of the other colonial powers of the time. Germany lost all of its colonies as a consequence of the treaty of versailles at the end of will one and then in german classrooms anyway. A lot of the focus has been on what happened during world war two and of course the holocaust which essentially means lot of teaching in a history classes spends a lot of time focused on those events rather than looking at germany's colonial history. But that doesn't necessarily mean. The german colonial history is insignificant at the of its colonial empire. Germany had the third biggest colonial empire in africa. One of those colonies was namibia. Can you can you just explain what happened in the past and the extent of the atrocities sky. Namibia was one of the german colonies. The other ones being tanganyika in east africa togoland and cameroon in west africa but namibia in south west africa was one of germany's most important colonies as it were. It was also the place. Where a lot of germany's colonial brutality actually played out and the land that is now known as namibia became annexed by germany as a result of the eighteen eighty. Four eighteen eighty five berlin conference and as german settlers and forces moved in. They removed many people that were living there and seized land. And what. This essentially culminated in was a very dark period of colonialism between nineteen o four nine thousand nine hundred eight which is now known as the herero nama genocide by the German colonial forces and there is no way to overstate the absolute brutality. Of what happened with talking about the Herrero losing up to seventy five percent of their population during this period of time and just to put it into context talking about a time when german forces actually seized land. There were people shot an armed refugees within put into the first concentration camps of that period and forced to work on german colonial Projects to build up their colony so it is a small matter even though it did happen. More than one hundred years ago Let's bring you up to date on what what has been agreed between the two governments germany and namibia. Germany are already in two thousand and four agreed that it had a moral responsibility towards and especially the victims of the herero nama genocide and what has transpired is. The germany has decided to officially say that what happened between the years. One thousand nine hundred four nine hundred ninety eight was in fact genocide and that german forces were responsible for this and the key thing of course is that there was always a question of. Will there be reparations involved and to be clear. Germany has not to pay reparations to the descendants of the victims. what they have agreed is a one point. One billion euro aid package essentially to be paid over thirty years with the namibian government and that has essentially been agreed on on what has the response from the leaders of the herero and number of people being. It's a sensitive question this because throughout the negotiations. The negotiations themselves were criticized right from the start by certain leaders within the herero and nama communities because they did not see the namibian government as the vehicle in which to carry out these negotiations because they wanted to deal directly with the german government itself and the german government specifically wanted to deal on a bilateral basis with the namibian government herrero leaders as well as now leaders have said. They think that this aid package were is an insult and that this is not enough to compensate for the Land losses the loss of humans or dignity that the herero nama people suffered. Thanks a lot.
