Israel Evicting Palestinian Families and Letting Jews Move In
"More construction money for us. So whatever you know will. There won't be any dead palestinians but at least my cousins construction company will have worked for the next two years. So hamas taking advantage of that. The israelis don't care because they don't pay for the reconstruction of an empty building that was destroyed the some european. Ngo does the whatever the belgian committee for the reconstruction of palestinian the high rises destroyed by the evil jews or whatever and it wouldn't surprise me if that actually was an ngo probably poland and so let's fast forward to what started earlier in the week. Hamas began firing a larger salvos of rockets than they had before. Plus there were new. Industrial mass produce rockets out of iran. So instead of the basement rockets with bad iron pipe and bad welding and all that that would launch out of a launcher and then veer off into the mediterranean or to egypt or whatever or more often than not a block down the road into a palestinian building. A whole bunch of casualties are self inflicted by by hamas over the past week so all of a sudden now. They're getting better precision rockets coming off an assembly line in in iran. So that at the point of that is that if you're going gonna mass fire them if you're going to sow them you want as much concentrated destruction in their impact zone as possible. That's the theory of the american. Mls multiple launch rocket system which now have guided warheads and all that but there. Its initial iteration into into the defensive. Europe was to imitate frankly as soviet tactic of of mass rocket launch with almost simultaneous impact.
Fighting Intensifies Between Israel and Hamas
"And Hamas militants in Gaza intensified further today when Israel leveled a 12 story building that housed several media outlets, among them The Associated Press and Al Jazira. Israel gave a now hours notice before launching the Rockets that turned the high rise into rubble and the people in the building were evacuated. CBS NEWS correspondent MTs T. AP reports Israel is under increasing pressure to agree to a cease fire. We do know that Hamas said to Israel Hey, we're ready for a ceasefire in Israel said No. In fact, we spoke to Mark Regev, who's a senior adviser for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, just yesterday, and he said that's a ceasefire wasn't on the cards. But with this international pressure growing, we have a number of Arab countries really pushing for this. We have a number of European countries pushing this for this. Now the kind of concern we're hearing from Washington. There could be some sort of what's described here is the cessation of hostility, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. On social media. We have communicated directly to the Israelis that ensuring the safety and security of journalists and independent media is a paramount responsibility. The Israeli military claims it targeted the building because Hamas intelligence agencies were using the media offices as human shields. Gas supplies. They're starting to

It's list dance. The janik crust material and therefore floats on top of it unlike previous research which is based on strontium isotopes and marine cabinets which are usually either scarce or altered in rock more than three billion years old new study by scientists from the university of bergen looked at the mineral barrett which forms from sulfates emotion water mixing with barium from hydrothermal vents and thus holds an unchanging record aversion chemistry. Going back through time. The authors calculated the ratio of strontium isotopes in six different deposits of barrack from three different continents range in age from three pointed three point. Five billion years this allowed them to determine win with continental rock populated into the ocean and was incorporated into barrett the authors determined that the weathering started about three point seven billion years ago. That's around five hundred million years earlier than previously thought. The findings provide a new understanding of early ocean chemistry.

Pipeline Outage Forces Airlines to Add Stops to Some Long-Haul Flights
"But today is day five of that largest fuel pipeline in the country being shut down because of cyber attackers who reportedly seized control of the computer. Networks of the company that operates that pipeline. The attackers then demanded that the company pay a ransom of some kind to get their stuff. Back we know how much ransom was demanded. We don't know if the ransom might even have been paid by the company. The fbi is investigating this as a crime. The fbi says they've identified a russian and eastern european based hacking group as responsible for the attack but even with that though this pipeline is still down five days into it and this is the biggest fuel pipeline in the country. And you can't shut down something like that for five days without feeling it. And we are now feeling the first effects on the ground of this sort of frighteningly successful attack gas stations running out of gas mostly in the southeast but increasingly up the eastern seaboard. Some of that may very. Well just be hoarding. As people are worried about supply shortages and so there effectively causing them by filling up every tank. They've got but hoarding can't explain. Why airlines now are having to reroute planes and add new stops for long-haul flights because they can't get the fuel. They need to fly their regular schedules.

They set out in fifteen nineteen only twenty seven years after columbus first landed in the bahamas in fourteen. Ninety two the magellan voyage really just set out to achieve with the columbus expedition tried to to reach asia by sailing west. The difference was that this time they knew there was a gigantic landmass in between europe and asia. And this time they were gonna go around it. Magellan was portuguese so many people assume that his expedition was sponsored by portugal. But that wasn't the case. It was actually a spanish expedition sponsored by king charles. The first the spanish wanted the western route because portugal had a monopoly on the eastern route around africa in through the indian ocean. The expedition consisted of five ships with supplies. Last two full years the total crew consisted of two hundred and seventy minute at the start mostly spanish but with crew from many different countries. The expedition took a major toll.

American Judaism Beyond the Synagogue with Rachel B. Gross
"Is really. I think fantastic to have you join us and talk to us about your book which is just such a fun book. It's such an interesting approach and it might be great to start out by talking about the title of the book which is to say that this is like the best title where you look at the title and you understand immediately what the book is about and what the argument is from the beginning. You talk about jewish religion beyond synagogue. Can you say a bit about what is the meaning of the big idea here. Know the the comes out in this idea that you're talking about religion outside of the synagogue and what is powerful example. That really illustrates this trend. That you're thinking about so. The book is about american. Jews nostalgia for eastern european immigration to the united states around the turn of the century and how american jews have represented and institutionalized that nostalgia. I look at four case studies from the nineteen seventies to the present and i making an argument that nostalgia has become a way of american jewish religious practice so i'm not saying that traditional forms of jewish religion and community organization aren't important. I really like the term beyond. Because i think it encompasses the synagogue and also includes things beyond it. I'm not saying that synagogue practice is over in any way. I think the forms of religion. That i'm looking at in. This book are compatible with traditional forms of jewish religious practice so building on many american religious history scholars. Basically i think of religion as things that are meaningful to people. I think about religion as texts and practices and even emotions that connect us two big

Principles Of Success For A Lifetime: Going the Extra Mile
"The extra mile is the theme here. Going the extra mile is rendering more and better service than you are paid for with with a positive mental attitude about Iraq. And in fact, in thinking of Richie shortens, the positive mental attitude and refers to it as watching European. A so, I think that's interesting that there's two parts to this rendering more and better serve. But also with a positive mental attitude, feeling good about it. So, I wrote down just three, you know, thoughts from that one is the it's my pleasure attitude. And if you program yourself to always say, when somebody says, thank you to say. It's my pleasure, that reinforces your positive mental attitude, just by saying it. Even if you don't necessarily feel it subconsciously, you're going to start feeling it. But I'll tell you where you were reading that point where my mind went dead. In the extra mile is rendering the more and better service than you. You're paid for with a positive mental attitude that is a sort of, I guess a cousin to doing what you don't want to do when you don't want to do it the same level. But the last bit of are saying, is really where I think that success for it at the highest level, right? And so it's interesting when you are going through the process of learning something, when you're wanting to be really good at it, you can shown up, you can go through the motions. You can, you know, like say, for example, you're learning to pick up the phone and you're going to start a directly soliciting contacting proactively communicating with perspective sellers right home. And so a lot of you will, you know, load blade go through the actions of maybe forcing yourself to do it, you know, you'll go and you'll get the list, you'll start making the calls, you'll read the scripture, go through the process, but you're really not doing it with any sort of intensity. You really not doing it with the intention of helping people. Let alone setting a listing appointment and as a result, you don't get any results from it and maybe log, Have, you know, you're being forced to do it or course to do it. You keep on doing, you keep on doing it. And eventually, what's going to happen is you're going to make one call, you're going to feel a little bit different. Maybe the caffeine is hitting at the exact mileage when you're supposed to be asking. If the appointment then all of a sudden your energy levels going to take up a few notches. And all of a sudden you're gonna start feeling like, you know, you're you're really in tune with wanting to help this person, solve the problem with the house and all of a sudden you suck

European Commission Unveils Plan to Tackle Foreign Subsidies
"It block deals with foreign companies if those companies get unfair subsidies from their governments.

Seems to be waning event marketplaces to replenish or has that one European leaders are increasingly worried that China's state heavy economic system is threatening their own companies. James Lewis is with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He says China and Europe have a history here about a decade ago. The Chinese through a combination of industrial has been nauseous and economies of scale from the local market and huge government subsidies, basically ate the solar panel market and drove the Europeans out of the business. Europe's new rules are trying to level the economic playing field. Concern over human rights is another factor. Other governments also concerned President Biden is reportedly circulating proposals targeting China. The G seven summit David Dollar is with the Brookings Institution. We and the Europeans we can control who invest in our economy Who's able to do mergers and acquisitions in our economy that there lots of other areas where we just do not have any leverage. Anything that China does within its territory from subsidies to human rights is probably out of reach, he says Jennifer Hillman with the Council on Foreign Relations. Says China's growing influence as an investor and infrastructure through its international belt and road initiative has made it harder for some countries to confront him. And Hillman says the U. S is partly to blame. It's very hard when we're going around the world telling everyone don't use wall weighs five G when we do not have a five G alternative to offer we're concerned about the degree to which China is building all of this high speed rail around the world, but we do not have a high speed rail alternative to offer.

"On its own. Mantilla's there is a question about United States' position on Brexit So what is the trump administration's position and? If Biden wins and takes office what would be his attorney between the two? Yeah that's that's an excellent question. I. Think on the minds of many of you I mean obviously you brexit happened and it's often linked with the advent of trump in the United States had because they seem to at least invite similar currents in Anglo Saxon capitalism or an anglo-saxon Society for that matter right so both had an anti immigrant bent both had sort of anti establishment bent and answered similar forces that drove. The British people to vote for Brexit voted many Americans to vote for Donald Trump. So the president, the American President has been very supportive of Brexit right? He he sees he sees the EU as a competitor. He believes in sovereign states and he wants to do deals with states rather than with something like the European. Union this famous meeting with Angela Merkel, but he kept asking, let's do a deal. Between Germany and the United States and she kept saying we cannot do a deal with you because our trade policy has done by the European Union and after the fifteen time he said, okay well, let's do a deal with the EU in that in that case. So I think that the main sticking point right now and Joe Biden himself has repeated this but even someone like Mick Mulvaney who's the former Chief of Staff of Donald Trump Ben, and of course, the special representative in Northern Ireland. Now, half play the Irish cards. So it's very clear that the Irish American and the Irish lobby in Washington DC has more swayed in the traditional special relationship, the anglo-american relationship between London and Andy See. So here. Nancy Volusia said it many Democrats some Republicans even have said there will be no trade deal with the United Kingdom if there is a threat to the Good Friday, agreement right so and the context of this of course is that in in September Boris Johnson's government ruled out what's known as the Internal Market Bill.

"The same as they treat France or Germany which means you know the the the tariffs Say you know if we have to high tariffs that will be inflationary bad for our economy and crystal drive up prices of all the kinds of things we import. So let's just keep zero tariffs, but that will wipe out automotive industry. The agricultural industry and farmers fishery so because they suddenly will face tariffs with the rest of the world. The way to face with the rest of the world, right so that's why your point about alternative markets is is important but that being said, the European Union has hundreds of trade deals with all kinds of countries right and an association agreements and so on and so the UK has benefited from that negotiation because the EU is always in a stronger position because it had a much bigger market, the UK will have to renegotiate every bilateral a deal with the EU has for itself. And we've seen that they've done this in the case of Japan and what you know right away is that when it comes to the UK Japan Free Trade Agreements Britain has had to accept worse conditions than the European Union to accept tweeden certain things like quotas they stay where you can have the rest of the Yolk you quota unless the US, the full quota, and then your quota goes down for example, right? So that's why I don't see there to be a great many. short-term opportunities because nobody will WANNA make a deal with the UK unless its relationship with the European Union has been has settled. Thank you. I'm going to go next to a question in the chat from Peter Revich at UC St University of California San Diego, school, Global Policy, and strategy who are the interest groups in Germany and France pushing for a deal. What will they give up to get one? That's a very good question from Progressive Gurvich, and very much expected. You'll be happy to know we just discussed Dixon hard times yesterday by convert bliscoll Columbia Class. So the the main interest groups pushing for a deal in Germany are the usual suspects, right? So it is automotive mean everything that's that's having scenery exports that has a substantial market in case they're about his tariffs on their. On their on their products end up immediately made them less less competitive. In to some extent, a certain. Services are also that rely on A. Lot Of. Imported. UK services whether it's legal whether it's financial, they use. They also want to maintain good relations into are are pushing for he'll. As. Well, I think in France it's more complicated right because and that's where I think in these negotiations you see Marco playing pushing for the pushing for a deal with any cost but still staying optimistic staying the course you see well, not cool of France being much more pessimistic and much more taking a hard line on this especially fisheries right? He wants a very much a a good deal for his because. There's all these coastal villages all over. Brittany Normandy name it. The whole French coast that will be destroyed if there's no deal. So from that point of view, he wants a deal from the point of view of level playing field. He very much wants to deliver very strong dealers while because he's worried about unfair competition for Francis National Champions and and and so on. So what would it will be interesting to see? Is is who wins this tussle of of strength it seems to be the case that France and Germany have a new understanding since covid nineteen and since the European recovery funds and..

So I thought you could begin by talking about where negotiations currently stand and what no deal means for the European Union. Yeah first of all, thank you enough for a for inviting me to to this seminar and of course, welcome to everybody's joining. States. There is a kind of short-term pressure point here where we have reached the point in the negotiations between the European Union and United Kingdom words basically the the beginning of the end if you want to, that's now kind of. In place there's all kinds of deadlines being thrown around Boris Johnson wants there to be a deal by October fifteen. Well, that's an reach. It seems unrealistic and it looks like the European leaders are a little more comfortable pushing into the second half of October maybe even early November because everybody knows the real deadline is December thirty first. Maybe it's worth standing still for a minute at how far we've come right in these in these negotiations in how many things had to happen to get. US through this point right and so I think I mean Brexit is an event that will be analyzed by academics and scholars and thinkers for for years to come but it is kind of striking from kind of historical `institutionalised point of view how many things have to happen for us to get us there right. So first of all, of course, the vote. That was very divisive in united. Kingdom because obviously discounts and the Northern Irish voted to remain in the European Union while the Irish. Sold a majority of England voted to to leave. That's of course seeing. Cameron resigned threes. A makeover may trying to make a kind of deal that would keep the United Kingdom very close to the European Union and basically exposing the contradictions of Brexit's right and so in. Many ways was settled when Boris Johnson took over than couldn't make a deal at first then made a deal and on the withdrawal agreement and then won a big general election, right? The basically said, this is what the British people want. They will leave the European Union and they did leave the European Union is often confusion about.

A lanky Lancastrian and a member of the London Mountaineering Club. I didn't know him Until I found myself in a group of about fifteen climates who flew and drove and even bust themselves to Azure Teal La Mesa. They say a small village in the heart of the French Alps and one of the world's premier ice climbing destinations assess. Is the voice clothing place national of again. The man who organized the trip is die richards a welshman. I think this might be jere of Latte you holes valley mm-hmm but always hearsay to some sports iced of the Golden I. This is my first London mountaineering running club trip on some kind of strange officiation. Rod saw should expect them. Yeah I mean obviously Defense ship you have to carry on our early. Outings are up to the cliffs at SAIC with Gullies in summer run with water which are now frozen solid recreational clubs a real title thing in the UK from the beefsteak club which was formed in seventeen. o five with the express purpose of you guessed it eating steak to the southeast London.

Who Happen to like to sing Gregorian chance because in Britain does she have any real friends? He's joining clubs pathological loneliness after I logged into its website. The London Mountaineering Club offered panoply of adventures from rock climbing in Spine to heal walking in Scotland and in January. Twenty twenty a week scaring in yourself silly scratching your way up cascade is in France. The highlight of the early part of the week was a route.

Move to London from Johannesburg back and spins every summer climbing in the Alps on the Y.. Down died sponsors shortcut basically looking at the snow getting right. Now we're trying to descend from the top. The route from the top of formed the chaos. And you know just tomatoes off of it easier to save our aging knees. You know.

Is there still do get. And the fee. Filled described is a common thread in every nuts conversation. The rate we climbed today has a big chunk of ice at the top like a hanging icicle about twelve foot long icicle. which at some point is gonNA fall down and very likely to fall down when underneath it but you never know what might do? That's Dave Wigley. WHO spending the winter leaving out of his car in the APPS but I think on the risk fund it's taking calculated lated risk conscious decision based on the information?

You acutely aware as the risks facing and doing everything you can to mitigate. Ah The anxiety about protecting yourself from harm is climbing 's defining Motif for me. You don't get anything for nothing so you have a negative feeling for hours before you climb up. This morning was pretty bad for me. except I wasn't quite with it. Look declined and while you're exhilaration accelerated for you know it's like you don't get a free you go through the pain. Many climates described that exhilaration nation as being so powerful.

The route is called captain courageous and when I stood at the bottom of it looking at several several hundred meters of ice and listening to the water still running behind it. I didn't feel too much courage. But then I thought would've Jones words and taught wrote to my Hana's said I hope of the pitch elmo's Leka the kind of energy energy like this.

I don't see what if anything had surprised him in terms of what was discussed. But I think one of the great things about this conference is the way you're directly from central bankers Akerson former central bankers and I think what apprising was how strongly the central bankers want to defend Asset for banking as an independent Regime focused on monetary policy. And why this is interesting is because monetary policy Assey in near the zero bound around the world and therefore what comes next if we have another crisis is a question and I think A little the debate was about you protecting this institution versus Is Not the primary goal of investors even if it is of central bankers I investors have to kind of look through the central bank policy and think about levers like this policy that may be deployed if we get more of a slowdown. Is there an argument. More carefully that global investors have been perhaps overly pessimistic in two thousand nineteen if you look at indices near an all all time high and you look at positioning and you look at active fund managers and you look at what we see on a proprietary basis about the cash holdings of many private clients well and there is some reading the thing that it's been very difficult for people to price in political risk that has been raised around how things like the US China trade conflict on the other hand You know the year is over yet and we still don't know and I'm not sure that the trade renegotiate or even know what president trump is going to do about the next round of terrorists so that is really the swing factor that has markets Grip markets right now well on that point about trump.

What would happen typically what we do mostly every year as fact we are invited our family? That's the night before Christmas. We have a great dinner. Are we get together and we open up presence at midnight at midnight. Yeah is that after Church turn regardless of it depends if you go to midnight mass which usually started around eleven. You'd be out run midnight. Go back home around midnight. half-price midnight and then you open your present so kids are staying up pretty late that time. It's fun to talk to both of you about this.

That's still ahead on today's travel with Rick Steves chiefs right now. We're joined by a friend from Budapest. George Farkas heritage shared the Hungarian vision of a magical Christmas. George Merry Christmas. Thank you Christmas Christmas to you. How do you say Merry Christmas in Hungarian bulldog Karachi? And what does that mean literally. Merry Christmas George. If you think back to your fondest memories as a child growing up in Hungary Christmas memory what would it be. Preparation for. Christmas is always exciting. And obviously or excitement of trying to find out what you'RE GONNA get gets You know and then your parents hide your Christmas gifts in the House and then obviously once they go to work and you're already off from school. You going through all the cupboards and trying to find you know what they prepared for you kidding so the mom and dad are away at work. And you've got you go through. A couple isn't trying to find what they've prepared and there was one time when There was a box walks of But there was a gadget of some type which I didn't really care for and I was very very disappointed to receive it and then I founded that it was hidden and For the next door neighbors do whatever and I thought. Oh No don't tell me. This is likely but but the gifts were just hidden until they were ready to who to give the words. Yeah I understand it starts with what the eve of Saint Nicholas. Yes and that's that's the fifth of December and that's one of the big days in The night before the fifth you have to Polish your boots so they have to be spotless and clean and then you put them in the window and then you go to sleep and then products morning you get up and the first thing before you do anything you actually run to your boots and see what Santa Claus brought you over tonight and in your even boy good boy or girl you got the present if not some you got a couple of pieces of tree. Branches tight together together. Usually sprayed silver or gold and that would be a red ribbon and then that would show that you were not really behaving well and then this is what you gotta get hit. Twitter you chased with this is on December fifth. Yeah is that a way for you to sort of if you've got the sticks to become a better child a nicer child and then on December twenty four th you'll get another supposedly that's a mess. Yes then then you must not imagine gifts you would get maybe a chocolate or you. We'll get tiny baby. A pair of gloves. Something like that and then none of the parents would missed. Put One of these little tree branches in because there's always way to improve so always he's a little room for their descend. Have a partner in this in this little activity. Well our sort of other character that we would have that would be eh campus campuses. Most of the Times is a female and she would be dressed in black and white have long tail and and black love zone jury and it would be scary so if again if you got those within branches and then you could expect to be changed by the campus all also your terrorized. You could say that this is traveled. rix talking with George Farkas. He's from Budapest in Hungary towards. Let's go right up to Christmas Eve. Now it's it's Christmas Eve and understand. The parents will take the family out and by the tree on the twenty fourth and decorated with very traditional. And then how does it then play out for the children. What is them? So you basically your decorate your tree and then ozone huge preparation to clean the house and get everything decorated in ready and set the table. Poland mummies cooking dinner. And then you go and sit down at the dinner table you wait to finish your meal because after the meal This is when he actually receive. Receive your presence. You kids are trying to be polite and make conversation at dinner but all you want to be. Oh Yeah so if you can even think back to that already be seated presents many times you see the presence under the like. Imagine yourself sitting at this table and then you have the Christmas trees. Old Boxes are under the Christmas tree. And you're thinking which one is GonNa be mine. And what would traditional food items be on the table that would be a poultry or Most of the Times it would be fish carp Karp. Yeah so we would have a car soup which again with Hungarian traditions would be fairly similar to gouache color texture? Type type of a Goulash yes. You could say carbon. Shall we call it a fish soup but all you care about us those gifts before you the gifts what would be the most popular or most beloved dessert for Christmas time spent six are automatically. It's called Begley and you should imagine like Ado due listening on your Pan then you put filling in and you roll it up and feel you probably would be surprised. The most popular one is poppy seeds puppies here so so we eat a large amount of poppy seed big quantity of poppy seeds and I usually make a joke that it nearly stops entering the European Union. Because they wanted to control the amount of poppy puppy season and I usually say you know we stood up and said if you want us to be happy. We're coming if not swear stay. In Hungary with poppy seeds or not at all and for a a lot of Americans The Candlelight Silent Knight is the most beloved Carol what would be the most popular caroline. I would say the the Hungarian version of that silent mating on garrison during certain that she really seeing that she turned she. But I don't WanNa do anymore with my beautiful voice. George thank you very much and tell me again how to see. Merry Christmas in Hungarian bulldog Karachi bulldog.
"european" Discussed on Talking Politics
"Now obviously the french empire in africa collapses axes bike quickly after the treaty of rome assigned and it's one of these late imperial episodes that people don't much like to draw attention to these days but pay attention to these episodes reminds asif how contingent the creation of things like the european union are but also how many different ideologies play whether religious or imperial <unk> own limo or along. Do you feel if this one fails there are still when you look at the long history lots of other ways we could do it. What do you think we have now. Wrap this idea up in this this version of it because there are still lots of other ways we could do it but it's not clear we can get to them all back to them so i don't know enough about about the politics especially of international banking i mean i think if the current european union fails it will be because some banking crisis blows up the european financial system tom this podcast helen thomas the person to ask about that wherever as a european union mark to to replace the current one i think will depend on what form break-up takes what former collapsed aches and how long people try to keep a failing institution going because that will set the scene for the next phase of the story but i would have thought that if the current european union collapse as for whatever reason there's enough legal harmonisation and after the political ankle class has instincts towards cooperation my guess would be there would be an attempt to european union two point bert exactly what format would take. We'll have to depend on the way in which exist in union fails we will tweet links to some of christie's writing on this subject about rousseau and many other things at t.

"european" Discussed on FT World Weekly
"Hello and welcome to wealth weekly from the financial times i'm gonna in rockland today when discussing the new leadership of the european union selected earlier this week in lake nona summit joining me on the line from brussels correspondent spot on that jim brunson and here in the studio is europe editor benham jim i described as a light not something i mean they are but this one seem particularly fraud i mean watching from a distance i did not see wonder whether they would be able to find a compromise and therefore find find the new head of the european commission and the european council and someone how long ago was it yeah exactly i think that's what sets it apart i thought she is summit where they had a total cops in total failure on the modern day in each then pull things together i'm still by the cheese day so you know we used having all that summit talks very difficult and then they have a chip to know that and they're about to announce so they found a compromise on everything from greek bailouts to maybe at least part of the solution to a crazy some kind of migration system fear for example on this occasion they took all the way through the nights on sunday into monday morning and basically and then pretty made the decision to carry on trying and so then another three or four hours and see which diplomats described to me as being chaotic take crazy groups of leaders sitting around trying to come up with a deal completely bucket kind of way than i think they took wilson's petitions go get a few hours sleep and then finally the deal was hatched don't choose day says the deal is eventually hatched came out where they present the european commission assertive underline the german defense minister had been completely undiscussed beforehand how much did she just sort of image suddenly is somebody is brain wave and how much was this always in retrospect in the background on probably more important jim once you're gonna be nine can the commission president yeah us the underlying was owned the very long list if you'd like of potential alternative candidates for defense rights i say alternative because they official candidate for the sense rights also nine in brussels of european people's policies this is the grouping of christian democrats in central leaders their official candidate manfred veda member of european parliament when it became clear that wasn't gonna fly which is apparent before the summit they needed a plan b and her name us dylan's name was in that conversation but to be honest the main people who were mentioning it was the french french president emmanuel macron who ready pushed her kohl's and put forward their idea of building a package round which is well avenged e books and break the deadlock in the talks so i'm told by one source the jury in the negotiations her name did come up as earliest stages sheila's mentioned as a possible high represents to foreign policy so easy for minnesota role but really i think the fact that she emerged from if you like slightly from left field really helps in a way because it completely changed the dynamic of the discussion up to them all joining the summit they've been trying to solve this 'nigma of how to build a package around friends timmermans a dutch socialist as commission president's manfred favor of the president's european council this is climate been hits appalled and it wouldn't work and i think bringing her in completely change the dynamic not least because both the ac be much more essentially into the discussion with christine lagarde cutting baptized just shifted the tectonic plates bad grades some breathing room for discussion in terms of what kind of commission president's since she's gonna be they don't really know she's very strong integration is views some people fettes hers european federalists but there's no idea in brussels watch jeopardy we're moving from shown coach jim komi who is an old school european federalists but also very pragmatic donald tusk who is by no means european federalist it's a generally a much more avowedly old school you're filed if you like team michelle michelle from belgium leading the council on muslims align leading the commission i think maybe we can expect to see some clan it's just projects coming back on the table on pops and quite controversial ones so you solidarity southern european countries on migration in the form of compulsory migrant crisis may be very difficult and also maybe some ambitious projects but here's i said man i mean obviously they see the one package age are we right to focus on the line at the head of the commission as the headline or maybe in retrospect decide that it's costing the balance moved to the european central bank will make a break this package i suppose were focusing on those underlying partly because of course he is at the center of the political control the cnn political action but i agree i think christine lagarde is the most significant appointment and may have a big role in terms of shaping the future of yours and us on the line at the end of the day and it's also an appointment which has some controversy or at least questions because of course christine the god has no experiences a central banker has no experience of monetary policy is northern economist but she clearly he's a very talented two small charismatic woman with very very good politicals skills and she surrounds himself with good technical people since mario draghi is ready sort of setting the coolest monetary policy for sometimes they come maybe she's a success and ben jim sent the the french should be pushing us love on the line and generally this whole package is being seen as a bit of a trauma from manual macron so you have a french woman is the head of these e b canada they propose the the head of the commission you gotta francophone belgium as the head of the council do you think that's the right way region and if so is it a technical front porch the french basically monster shape they decisions but did she get anything out of it in the long run in terms of the mumps and francaise it's national and i think it's definitely a win emmanuel macron thing that is beyond out especially when you put it in the context of his recent sort of faded goes to build alliances and to make any headway on yours on reform for example i think this is k a big win for him he has used his influence within the european parliament ways policy within the european parliament to good effect he's established a good liberal beachhead in european policymaking which i think will be important in the years ahead but at the end of the day these are just a few people in a few very important critical posts about all the underlying problems at you and yours and remain as do many of the fundamental tensions between france and germany on how to solve those problems they know so by these appointments and what do you think will happen jim actually you mentioned there may be more of a federalist push now do you think that line to make much headway given the center of any federalist push it seems to me has to be attempts to build more of a knee conomic union around europe and the resistance waxing come probably from germany from mrs underlines and country well again i think this goes by tibetans point i think there's a risk if you're stating the importance of these appointments getting someone who's you'll put its carlisle shed geopolitical to political vision into a tough job in brussels doesn't mean your gender is now gonna carry the day simply because this is a system where anything significant has to be approved by national governments the most important stuff us directly by national leaders and then you've got the european parliament to contend with as well but it certainly helps i mean my crawl has come along with a very ambitious agenda the u of centralizing economic policy on the forging very strong corporation in other areas and having basically you'll mates in key coordination roles kind of any help microsoft income and isolated figure you summits but now his political best mate michelle michelle is not gonna be sharing some it's so anyhow brady in terms of just kind of greasing the wheels of processes endless brussels prices and imaginations you need to go through to get some kind of result i think it certainly does mean is that you've got leaders who want to push europe forwards inquire ambitious ways in assimilates mr macron say just just counter example you have a goal it's very cautious conservative leader from central and eastern europe coming in and taking over major prosecution with an agenda say robot coney udall making slash easy regulations on basically rewind policy you integration you've got people coming in who could have a very positive agenda to try and keep building new european project and i'm not sure you watch the favor of dislike manual not only wants to exactly that and then i mean not does uninteresting when it seemed to me to imagine the summit which is that it is accounts and they outside seems like a bit of a defeat the central and eastern europe they used up all around munition to block friends timmons she'd been taking some companies such as potent cold but now that faced with an intern in western european federalists team would geographical you're not you're not certainly not like yes they seem to take so much pleasure in looking timmons and the hungarian rocking manfred very bad that they saw as a triumph for them and for the unity of the vinograd for cool but i agree i mean they clearly can be an effective negative fools but still they have anything positive out of it how do they move forward their agenda now will if she lives on the line be any self thrown rule of law where she's i doubted so to it felt like a pretty fleeting victory for them and it shows you that they're gonna need to do a lot more to be able to build opposed to the lawn and maybe it's not just these new york eastern europe undoubtedly they need to figure out why they can actually use their influence better yeah i love the sense where nothing we obviously have to discuss stuff's brexit the neighbors government will be shutting up quite soon property led by boris johnson asking for rocket adjustments to the brexit deal otherwise we're gonna end with a no deal brexit now it always seemed to me jim that it's unlikely were gonna get any adjustments but the law steve somers had shown a reluctance to embrace no deal brexit on the palms with e you maccarone quote some pushback when he seemed to be proposing that but now we have shown michelle at european council does that make action no deal brexit slightly more likely it's ready instincts no the donald tusk the man who shot michelle will be succeeding is european council president i think he's often portrayed in the uk press as being a part of the sports in because because he's been very outspoken against breaks to such as boris johnson united states most famous quotes is the breakfast is have a special place in hell because they cars uk tonight's leave without having a way described at the time is a shred of aplomb but i studied donald tusk is fundamentally anglophile the file politician who was devastated the uk to leave i desperately wants to be uk tribus the decision so the uk undue influence in europe hot very very strong friend in donald says he's not being placed by shell michelle if you opt now has played the role being the most outspoken julieta when it comes to expressing frustration about you case approach to brexit when it comes to saying that you should be ready to take a new deal if necessary when it comes to pretty much ridiculing to be honest the way the uk is gone about the negotiations so he's in by the mind the person the politician saying the things the other leaders such as i'm gonna go called say now he is the one who is gonna be sharing these summits when you british prime minister will be attending zillow's western they used when you leave and afterwards and even joined that will be charing meetings twentyseventh e you leaders say it's a very very interesting change i'm pretty quite worrying one you yeah yeah yeah so although i suppose the show michelle will have to motor right his frustrations izzy council president but i suppose were the stage and the prices were even mind you change of attitude and temperament could count for quite a long yeah because to push back against macro and michelle one i don't think he will known certainly no the beginning okay well after leaving now but will get a sense of how this is playing in the coming months the new team take that places in brussels but for now thank you very much indeed the gym runs in brussels tobacco home here in the studio london that's it for this week until next week goodbye this financial times podcast is supported by capital.
"european" Discussed on Worldly
"So we had this shocking result in the European parliamentary elections. But what is actually tell us about the continent's future Alex, you happen to be on said continent in Vienna? So why don't you kick us off? What does this mean for Europe? So, yeah, I mean, I think it's worth taking a quick step back to remember that these elections, you know, usually not the biggest deal, like there's a feeling among tons of Europeans here that this is the election where you kind of put your protest vote in right? If you're if there's a vote for like, president in your country or even know local Representative you kind of haute in that one normally when it comes to the European parliament, because it's such a supranational body. It's kind of out there nebulous, if you feel like you wanna throw a wrench into the system like that's where you do it. And so it's not so surprising in a sense that the more sort of left leaning parties in the more right leaning parties gained, some power here. This is likely where a lot of disaffected Europeans throughout the. Continent, kind of went, I'm going to I'm going to totally mess with things here. And, and kinda shake things up. That does not mean of course, that there won't be actual implications from those protests, votes or or from these results, right? I mean, what we're going to see now is a lot more dysfunction in the European parliament. It's already famous for barely working because it's just because it's just got so many different kind of ideologies represented. Sounds familiar to Americans. Yeah. Exactly. Right. And so now that we've got even more polarization, stronger parties on the further left stronger price on the for the right. There's a lot less room for sort of compromise here. I think basically what Alex said is rate on the money, and what will really happen, or it looks like now the big questions, are how much power will the greens have now other sort of smaller liberal parties now that the center majority has kind of caved a little bit there. Going to really be reliant on those other pro e u parties to pass legislation. So the greens are kinda kingmakers potentially in the new European parliament, which will be an interesting development. The other thing is what will the far right? Do will they actually be able to organize and if so what will that look like, will they just be an obstructive force? They're basically trying to stop in block a European parliament from getting anything done Orel. They actually managed to somehow unite that seems unlikely just because when you're nationalist party, you're automatically looking out for your own interests. So cooperation isn't exactly the name of the game. But it will really be interesting to see what they bring to the European parliament when it starts its new term in July one thing that kinda wanna make clear before we move forward and talk about the center here. Is that like? Are we sure what kind of policies are gonna come through? No could they be surprised shore?.

"A mole. European politicians, keep these some judgment, I think, to date, the things that it just a very temporary. I mean situation for these relations. But at the same time I sink to maybe two. I mean. Mean situation for Trenton rations is. Trump is not a single voice. Go single figure in United States to have race. We got on transatlantic relations because once to keep American I become a successful I mean policy, especially in is of Mr. Trump and also in some. People average people even in the United States, I think this situation will keep going on you. Mr. Trump will drop down in next election. Another issue I could now Foley's, issue between e- European countries and United States. I sent it at the same time, it's a major member sleighs for European Union, including Germany, and France, tried to take the issue, the so-called a strategic autonomy and against the United States to play Zo. I mean to push forward European decoration, because we know because of a lot of divergent has now within European Union. It looks like it's more difficult to get some dynamics from internal I mean, from European Union herself, so too. Shape. China's law show United States as a kind of a compensator or kind of arrivals from outside. We'll be perhaps goot for his own Newton amick for your integration all miss your book nine talking about the strategic atonomy, how realistic is that given that Europe still relies on Washington for security? It's a very good question. And actually, I think it's more realistic than many people think if we just look at the security aspect, because yes indeed Europe relies on a lot, but it wouldn't really have to because the military threat towards Europe, even without NATO is not that big. I mean who would militarily try seriously to attack? You're up the Russians surely not. I mean, the French have nuclear weapons as well. I don't see anyone in tradition. War, who would try to engage a major power, like the European Union. So the question or the reason why I don't believe Europe is ready to Thomas is because it's not able to act as a political body. It's so divided. Also, institutionally between national states between a lot of institutions within the European Union, that there is no one who has a vision. What should Europe be where is it going? What does it want in the world, and it's very easy for other powers like the US like China like Russia to divide Europe time? And again, and that's why Europe is not an autonomous body in the international politics. Well mister Perry on what is the kind of European future that you'd like to see. Well, I would like to see an issue that we touched on. In fact, that small and medium sized countries and businesses for country is pass of bigger block, and we are going to see they shoe where in the future years to come. The will will be made up bigger blocks like the EU. And so on the world thing, each a person of sixty million people, whatever it is cannot be a major player, I don't think in future, but within the EU it could exist, great influence. I mean, the EU has p- hundred million people unless much bigger than Britain will ever be on the world faith e you can't quite possible Britain will not count in years to come, and that is something that our main within Britain up pushing big. Time you know that we all should be part of bigger block like this like that. You you have him so the reformed and basically, but have the influence which Britain as a small country would never have in pitcher. Let me serve Okinawa. What about you once? I would hope for more United Europe, that has a really strong leadership, and most of all has vision for its people. Thank you, Mr. Buch, man expert on Chinese and international politics.

"Have a love influence in the European parliament. And so that is a great source concern. Well, Dr Trifon. When did we start to see this latest fragmentation of European politics and the rise of nationalism and euroscepticism? If we look back to the past year. Shogo special euro-zone, that's crisis would be a very big stimulation to listeners ROY so for populism in Europe because we know this that crisis explored a lot of. Contradiction. So a lot of the problems or challenges will in European Union, especially so far, as we, if we can find out the situation in European Union, especially the very peak divergencies between the so-called lost part of Europe and south part of Europe, and especially eastern part and the western part. So I think it gives a I mean, the earth or soil for ROY so populist because it take a chance. Thea. To find some more, how to say extreme policy on annoys extreme principles in the name of people. I think Jessica Oakham hokum mentioned populace to parties Misir, too. Very big disappointment with his establishment parties, and those comments because they are not, they could not they are not successful to deal with the issue of the development and also that crisis. So he gives a space for populist party, another issue, I think to the change of the political situation in Europe with the feature of the voice of populist me center, it's also a part of the huge change in western countries. Indeed. It's kind of result of these. We have a very short break here coming back. We'll continue our discussion. You're listening to world today. I'm joing stay with us. I am on car sharia. I teach at the university in today has organized its programs, and it says, on bringing in a lot of views from all over, it is an extremely good platform for information and analysis than I should all success in the future.

"So I think the resort of the election for this European parliament will give a very, very pick. I mean impact on French politics in future, and also toured the Italian politics on this yearbook. No, we know that for quite a long time. The European politics had a fairly stable, alignment, is two or three major parties holding sway, but how much? They rake configuration of party, alignments and party system. Are we going to get coming out of this election? I don't want to speculate what's going to happen. But indeed, the rise of these so-called, far-right populace has been a theme over the last few years in all national elections across a number of countries. And it's worth to talk about that, and why I want to stay clearly did I don't endorse some of their especially anti-foreign rhetorics and the way they talk politics. I think I'm not as worried as some commenters in Europe are, and the reason for that. I recall a few years back, there was is congress between people like the builders marine lapenne foul Kapit of German, French Dutch, and other far-right populist leaders and I found that a huge change for the better because if we think just one hundred years ago, these. Right wing parties from France, Germany. They would call for war against each other to defend their culture against the other culture. Now, these countries sent their right-wing people to a congress together in order to debate how they can protect their common culture. Of course, again it's against foreign influences against Islam against the Africans against Middle Eastern immigrants cetera. But still it just gives me the sense that even the right wing parties to the vast majority. They're not trying to dissolve the European Union, and then end up in a state of pre e-. You -times of independent countries or even longer before Europe has been at war for centuries. Most of history of Europe is small countries fighting against each other. And I don't see any of these new populist parties one. Wanting to go back to that. And the second statement, I want to make is about this term populism, which I'm very unhappy with because. Populism comes from the word populace, which is people, right? And the biggest part is the European People's Party, which is ironic because it refers to the same route of people and the Greek term for people then is demos, and from that re is, is the word democracies. So it's about the rule of the people, and populism takes this majority rule, and turns it negative, which I find risky, because it just gives a very, very strong opening for these parties to say, yes, we are populous. That's a good thing because we stand for the majority of the people, which don't but that's what they're claiming. So I'm very careful with this term populist. Well, Mr Perry, how'd you look at this, this issue this rise of populism or nationalism on a continent? Do think they have perhaps become softer compared with one hundred years ago. Well, it's very very definite the'd as you be airing. And. Is absolutely corrected far better to how have the past all far better? But it is a great concern for those who are in power that we are seeing an issue, where in Hungary, for example goal band, and, you know, Farrar Britain, the Brexit party. We're going to staying a issue, where policies driven by parties of extremes. And they want to be the EU influences anyway, they won't tend to laugh intend to write, but they want far-right fall, and they say she populism, which appears to be and. There are different variations across Europe, but it appears to be sweeping across the year. We have kids builders in Holland. We have all we have Faraj. So it is to conceal low, historically, much better than it has in the past in relation to what is happen. But it is also concern for those people in power, the these parties such as for our break the party, we should likely to hold sway, and we'll top the poll in Britain holding sway. Have a love influence in the European parliament. And so that is a great source concern. Well, Dr Trifon..

"They don't want, they don't want to be positive, and they won't hire the voted to leave those who remain one day head. They don't bureaucrats over that number across and that had been hearing, split Britain, and is having a huge effect on Europe as well. Well, we serves how do you look at the low turnout and do you think it will go up this year? Indeed. The now turn out fully saw European parliament, you'd action. I said in a past. Many because of the, I think real. No. I mean competence via European parliament in the decision making process in the European Union institution. But since Lisbon Treaty, I mean, especially refitted fake in a year for two hundred ten at night. It looks like a European parliament, got some more competence, only decision making process in European Union. But I think who lots also first time we witness to voice of populace party in European parliament. So this year, I think, maybe there will be some different because absolutely no firstly establishment parties. Try to defeat the populist party in his election. Perhaps, they will have some more mobile. Relation in various states and other I think the reason is because of the now the European parliament get a Parisian also house. The co on policymakers along these European Union commission and no-show European Council. So I think maybe some more confidence to voters to. To active more actively. Yeah. Well, Mr. man, how does the general public think about e you these days, especially the young people in Europe? I can't speak for five hundred billion people. Of course, what I feel as myself below forty in Europe. Is that? There has been a massive rise in European identity, especially among the higher educated Europeans, it's, it's very natural to travel between European states and no people across borders. And so there is something coming up that people start feeling of themselves as Europeans, even though it may not be a patriotic feeling. But it somehow irrational feeling of we are all somehow connected through one European Union, and at the same time, I would like to talk about this concept of procedural, legitimacy versus material, legitimacy, and in my view, the west has much too much focused on this procedural legimacy of government. What I mean is, we only talk about how does the government get elected, and as long as there's a free and fair election? Nobody questions whatever happens afterwards and the Apas. It would be to say, well, a government is only legitimized, if it does something good for the people, which, for example, be a socialist. Take not only, but also socialists, and that second question is, I think where people are very unhappy with Europe? And with a lot of national governments within Europe, because time and again, people vote for higher wages for normal workers for less power to large corporations for not giving billions of euro two big banks to save them. But then when common people get in trouble, you know, they don't get money. They don't get retirement money. They get cuts. They get all these kinds of challenges of common people, and so from this material perspective, what the governments do is not satisfying. A lot of people. There's not been enough positive economic development or social development in. General in Europe. And I think this is what gets people more and more dissatisfied makes them feel, powerless helpless. And that's when people start vote voting for extreme parties just to show. Look, if it doesn't matter anyway, what I say, then I just say something because I know it makes you angry you being the current politicians in charge. While Mr. Barry, just now Mr. Buch mentioned about all those problems facing the continent right now. And with own noticed the rise of nationalism and populism, what is think are the key issues that are likely to sway the vote in the elections. Well, the terms of Britain, they are wrongly nasty. Issues. So people vote, according to how they warm, the policy in Britain be pursued generally, there are also issues in relation to climate change, and all is a cross-border issue. But the main thing is, as much as I don't want it to be the main thing is that the voting coats to national politics..

"Doctors say, how do you look at those think the Brexit party has been doing so well in the European elections? Saw ROY Sophie Mr. Rogers party indeed. We can find out. He not only some very specific background in bracket, because so far, they the lot of disappointments from Aggie people in your K, about the conservative party and a neighbor party and the in Tallahassee of push for wadley some practice process. But of course, I think, generally, we can find out the environment recently special written years as we know that the pope Latam as the voice for Mr. Faraj and his party. And there was a very big showcase forty some general Trent. But now of course, I agree with optimism point is to a large degree the European parliament election has to be regarded by most of our European people us. Us as a secondary vote, which means it could not be decisive by resort daily life, by the daily life. But of course, it will become very, very cute opportunity to express the disappointment, and they are companies about of the politics about the European Union. Well, Mr McMahon, could you explain to us more how the European parliament elections actually work because that really looks of it complex or confusing for outsiders? Yes. And you asked me, I mean, I mostly focused on international politics, and, of course, preparing for tonight, I have looked at the elections also and the institutions of the and I totally agree with what you just said, it is extremely complicated. Simply put the elections are national elections all across Europe, and in each country, people vote for the parties that are available in their countries and these parties, try to kind of form you repeating parties. They are aligned across countries. But in some places they have different names than in others. They tried to have this one bitten candidat, which is like this one head figureheads to drama voters, but it's, it's not really unified parties with an authority across Europe. So each national party can do whatever they like Indian. So, for example, Merkel's German. Cd party is the same European party as Hungary's rather. Centerfold, anti-foreigner anti immigrants party there in the same European populist party. So it's, it's very confusing set of many local elections, put together Nash, a European parliament, which, of course, is not the official explanation of the process, but this is looking from a distance at how it actually happens. Well, Mr Perry, actually, the voter turnout has gone down in every single European parliament elections since they began in nineteen seventy nine on, do you think the low turnout main stat EU has actually failed time, and again to unite Europe, Ian people with Brexit, perhaps being approve of that. Yes. The Turner has been very low as you said, for well election to the EU, Paul, but, but it conceivable we done the exact truth, yet possible that the turn out will actually be now, we'll be higher this time because being the news people want to bend their anger. Again, the slowness of breath as you airing because galvanized people to have a not, oh, breakfast or to come. I need all those remain to day in though, it's possible the turn will actually go up, I but you're absolutely correct, the Turner, happy, very low therapy, and that tied into this whole drama, the undergoing now because it the EU is in. By many as a remote organization institution that is full of bureaucracy..

"Will the votes change the makeup of the European parliament? Are we going to see an explosion of populism in these elections?

He's an expert on Chinese and international studies and Phil Perry editor of the eye and investigative news, Beppe side in wells UK, welcome to work today. Day. Well, I think before we move on to our discussion on the European elections. There's breaking news this afternoon. Theresa May is stepping done as British Prime minister she anals to quit as conservative leader of on the seventh of June. So Mr. Paracha, study was the could you bring us more on the latest of this? Yeah. Basically, Theresa May lost control of the cabinet. In fact, there was a very major resignation leader. The palm tree party in the Commons, unrelenting them few days ago, and she's out, she had no where to go. She has tried and failed on several occasions to get he withdrawal, they'll through pollen. And now she's been told he has to go and she has plying resigned after one of the shelties ten years post second World War as prime minister in Britain, so Mr. power, we know UK was supposed to have deft the by now because the government has failed to reach the old that satisfies either the British parliament or the EU. They're now holding the elections as usual will cost more than one hundred million pounds. To choose the MVP is to take up seizing apartment that you're not into part of. So how many Brits are actually going to vote this time? That's very good question. I mean. Theresa May really didn't want these elections. They are distinctly old in Britain because, frankly, any Ps will be lactate, possibly Rhodia few weeks to take this before Britain comes out of the EU, and he didn't quite conceivable and the poll suggests that the tower is could come behind, for example, the glean, and that election result, which will compete. They election wall yesterday Britain, but the results coming on some day would be absolute anathema for the Tories and one of the reasons why she I think why he decided she had to go. And I think she decided she wanted to go now before the results come in on Sunday, which would be bad for labor after the polling poll, the toys. Yes. And if we believe in the pools, Mr. bug. C'mon. The pools actually suggest the candidates in the UK, that's most likely to be seated in a European parliament are actually those school are most determined. That Britain was leave the issue with the Brexit party that by Nigel Farraj expanded to come up on tops. Are you surprised by that? Well nine away. Yes. Great good come pain. I think. Yes. Mr. Volkmann was her take. From looking maybe from a bit more a far away from the UK. It's I wouldn't say surprising, in that many European elections have always shown that parties on the fringes get elected, much easier much more because voters may not fear so much that they're more extreme election. Choices have any tangible consequences. The parliament is very far away. It's actual powers limited, and national government have remained very strong autonomy above the European Union parliamentary decisions. So people may feel free to vent anger at their own, national government by voting some extreme parties into the European parliament. And I think that's something that's also happening in the UK with the special case, of course. That this Brexit has been going on for so long, and from all I hear is people are really fed up. I mean half, maybe half the Brits would like to have a revote and not leave at all the other half is saying, we should have left two years ago, and people are really fed up and they want to really show their government that they're really not happy..
