"The tube was out of his nose, and his nurse in a way looked like he's going to be okay. So fast forward three years, first time out, the horse wins at May 25 long at pimlico. And the horse broke is made. That's probably one of the most memorable wins for me as well. Again, not because he was a great resource, but because it was a because it was a situation with my dad and I and we read it and we raised it and went through everything that we went through to get him to the races and finally against all odds. He did not only get to the races and study he actually could win a race. So he is probably one of my more memorable ones as well. Yeah, thank goodness for your wife. I know. If she had stopped you from making that decision that story, I sound like a heartless, you know, whatever. But yes, thank God for rumsey. So anyway, but that was just some of the memories you have over 25 plus years that I've been doing it doesn't seem like it's been that long, but I guess it has been. Where does a horse named split decision rank with you? Jeez, split decision with a wonderful horse. How did you remember how did you get the name split decision? I remember when you joined me on the show in 2014 that you had talked about split decision is the first horse that you ever bought into. Yeah, it was my neighbor across the street when I lived it when I was a kid living at my mom's like I was 14 or 15. I was working at a farm up the road after school and I'd saved up a couple $100 and my neighbor Joan across the street. She had a couple kids and she was in her late 40s, early 50s. And she used to ride when she was younger and she knew my interest in it. And she says, look, he says, if you want to go and partners with me, I'll go to horse together and I'll ride it during the week when you're in school and I'll try to do the horse shows and you can ride them on the weekends and or shows. That was a great. So we hooked up down at the farc year county

"First full-time bilingual education program for migrant children at the U.S. Mexico border. Stephanie, thank you for being here. Hi, Alicia. Thank you so much for having me. It's Stephanie, I want to talk about all the work you're doing, but I feel like we can't talk about the work that you are doing without talking about the personal experiences you've had that have really led you to this theory of change. So I want you to take me back. What is it you remember about growing up in Colombia? I moved here when I was ten, so for me, it was a very hard experience to have to leave my home and be forced out because that's essentially what happened. My dad, his life was threatened, unfortunately, and within two weeks our lives completely changed. I remember being in school, I used to go to two and all girls Catholic school. And it was really small. So it was literally my family. I grew up with those girls since I was 5. On when this happened, my world got destroyed. So I remember being there the last day of school getting called to the office. It was a weekday. And I was like, what's going on? And my dad was standing next to the principal, and they said, you know, we have to go. And I was like, what do you mean we have to go like, I have a test? I can't go. And the next day, my family, my dad and my little brother and I went into hiding. So we wanted to a family's house in the country for about two weeks, and while we were there, my sister and my mom actually sold all of our belongings. And when we came back, we literally went to my grandma's house. They were 5 duffel bags with our clothes in there, and we were gone. The next day, we were at the airport, and I literally remember seeing in the movies when you say a goodbye, my whole entire extended family, my grandparents, my aunts, my cousins, my everyone, saying goodbye. And that was the last time I saw them. And now it's been 20 years this year is our 20th year anniversary of my family, leaving Columbia. What did your dad do that you were subject to those threats? Did you have a sense before that moment that there was potentially danger? And to what extent did your parents share with you what was happening in real time? And then to what degree did you really learn about it later? My dad was a lawyer, both of my parents are lawyers. My dad was also a university professor. He taught international law. And he is also his first dream was to be an astronaut, so he was very involved with astronomy and Cali, founded an astronomy team and represented Columbia in different NASA conventions around the world. So he was kind of a public figure, he was well known and a community leader, I would say. I don't personally know why my dad was targeted. The story is that at that time, so this is the early 2000s. After the fall of the cartels from the 90s, the khali cartel especially. And the farc sort of the main source of income and business, which were the cartels, was kind of falling, so then they opted to kidnap people for ransom. Whether it was a wealthy family or a political figure or sort of anyone in the community that stood out, they were targeting those people to then kidnap them and ask for ransom. So that's sort of the common knowledge that I have of the situation. I'm not sure if it's the full story and my family we are one of those families that don't really talk about problems. And we know they're there, but we quickly move on because it's painful to confront those feelings. And to this date, I haven't really spoken to my parents about what happened. So there's a lot to unpack within our family and our story. And I think to this date is still affecting me because a lot of confusion, a lot of answer questions and having to experience this as a child and then a teenager and now an adult being able to process all of that trauma, which is what it is. It's still something that I'm trying to go through. I appreciate you sharing all of that and we will talk about how that trauma and that pain has really informed your sense of empathy for other young people who find themselves displaced for whatever reason. What then was it like ten years old landing in Miami, Florida. Oh my gosh, I always feel that it was sort of an alien experience. So for me, going back to coming from an all girls private Catholic school, just even the clash of being in a school with boys was a big issue because I came to 6th grade, so you know girls here are starting to develop and get into, you know, boyfriends and middle school and all of this concepts. And here I was coming in with like, you know, my skirt up to my knees, my two finger distance for my socks. My rolling backpack, which was not cool at the school I was going to. And arriving at a school and my teacher, miss Robinson, was this a beautiful African American teacher who was so funny and she had a huge laugh and I remember being in her classroom and she it was the first time my name was pronounced wrong. My name is pronounced as stephania, but in America, people usually say estefania because it's spelled with an F and I didn't get it. And I was like, then they told me, no, she's talking to you. And these are all like who would become my friends who were like Cuban Americans who knew that I didn't understand English. So they were like, no, no, it's you, like you need to go right now. There was a special bill that rank for ESOL students, which are immigrant students that go to a separate classroom. So that rang and then I left, and I was like, okay, where do I go now? It was a complete loss, and I remember coming home that day crying. And I was like, mom, I can't go back to school. I need to have the backpack everybody has. I need to, I can't wear this long sock. So I need to have like the tiny socks that go to your ankles and it was chaos for me. So it took me a long time even to I remember my teenage years always denouncing it I think is the word. They're not seeing like, oh, you're American. And I used to be really angry about it and I would say, no, I'm Colombian. I'm just here for a while. And I even had the thought, I'm only going to take Colombian voice. It was this whole identity crisis I was having very young until you know I got older and now I understand and I appreciate the journey my parents took and I can now say, you know I'm equally American and equally Colombian because of my life experience.

Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu

"You want. You have total freedom. There's no guide. You can do anything you want. You have that freedom. And you move forward with that. And then you start to make decisions, and you start to take on obligations. You might get married, you might have kids, you have jobs, and you take on that. And the least happy period in life by surveys of happiness is 45 to 55, okay? Because then you have the work life balance and the obligations and too many things to do. And then maybe it's not as ideal as idyllic as you want. You know, you get into the marriage and whatever it is, and then maybe it's not the marriage that you expected or the things that you're having in all of those things. That's a difficult phase of life, that middle part of that phase in life. 45 to 55 and so on. And then people transition. It's interesting and opposite than what I would have expected that the happiest phase in life is between 1680. And the funny thing about it, which is really funny. They ask people. How good how good do you look? And they rate at the highest at that age. Now that's not true, right? But what happens is people at that point feel more comfortable with themselves in various ways. When you make that transition, you're eliminating all of those obligations. You're eliminating all of those things. You're giving yourself free. I don't have to take care of it. I savor my family's well without me, or whatever, as ah, I've got the free time. I could do whatever I want to do. That doesn't mean life isn't exciting. I find life very exciting. I'm very vital. I like those types of things. But totally free of choice. And you also savor the life arc, you know? Even as people approach their death, they approach the death in a whole different way than what death seems to be for people in their early years, right? Oh, you're terrible, terrible thing. No, it's just part of that particular process. And how do you do that life arc and ah, the curtain goes down? And that is a different phase in life. So, you know, my responsibility now is to pass along what I'm doing. I got plenty of money, so I'm not working for money. I'm giving away plenty of money because it helps and whatever. And I'm just passing along. I'll have that up by farc. And then I'm going to go quiet, and I'm going, and I save her life. And you go, I could just, I love nature. So I go out aside in nature. Okay? That has a big effect on me. I love it. So that's what the third phase of my life looks like. Yeah, man, that the whole notion that you're living in arc that there are phases I think is really important. And I don't think enough people recognize that your frame of reference will change as you move from phase to phase and what was important to you in one phase will not be important to you in the next. And to because I was thinking as you were talking, I was like, I personally don't believe that you can skip a phase. I don't think that certainly not with my personality and probably not with yours. It's not like you can skip the accomplishment phase and go straight to the saver phase. And I thought about that. My wife and I have made enough money, we could buy an island and retire and just be done with it. And when I really thought about how that would make me feel, didn't seem like it would make me feel the way that I want to feel, because I still want to be in the jungle. But as I hear you describe the savoring, it's like, yeah, I get how my life could get to a point where that's what I would crave. Yeah, you see when I'm hearing you do well is you're looking down on yourself again. You're describing. I'm looking at how I feel. I'm looking at so you're connecting the feelings with the thinking and so that's true. And in terms of no, of course, there's a sequence to that life. What I did in the book, which would be fun for people to do, is I show all the different markers and all the different phases and little boxes next to them. And so what they can do is they can check where they are. They know exactly where they are. And then also by showing that I am showing them what they can expect. Because if you're here on that arc, you can expect these things probably as you're going to check, check, check. Those are the things. Now you can start to imagine where do I want to be in ten years. And also, where are the people I love, who I care about, or what are their relationships, where will they be? Where will my children be in ten years? And what will they go through? Or what we're not parents, where will they be in ten years? And how will that relate to how I want to have my life go? Because and it's the same thing that you'll see the same things happen over and over again. All these lives are basically kind of the same thing so. And when you put that in perspective and you step back and you look at it, it's really great. The notion of it's another one of those, like, and I say that in a way, designed to remove fear and uncertainty, which is something that paralyzes so many people. And I think one of the things you've really given certainly me and anybody who's really deeply come in contact with your work is that sense of there is that higher perspective that shows that you're not the first person to have a child. You're not the first person to embarrass yourself publicly and not the first person to go through whatever heartbreak or heartache that you're going through. And when you can contextualize it, then you get to another thing that you've said, which of course Buddhists have been saying for a long time. This too shall pass. Whatever hardship you're in the middle of or whatever joy you're in the middle of. It's all part of a cycle. And so all of it will ease in the end. And so your preferences will change. Realizing how it works is so great because like the thing you love at ten is different than the thing you love at 20.

Rudy Giuliani: Our Security Programs Worked in Colombia
"Our greatest successes were in Colombia because in Columbia, South Carolina. Sorry, South Carolina. Columbia South America. You're talking about bringing this to places that are famous for their culture. To the cartel center of America, which is no longer the cartel center of America. But I knew Columbia well, from my work as a prosecutor, because I did a lot of prosecutions of Colombian drug dealers. I have the great I have the great distinction of having two contracts put out on me by the farc to slip my throat. Which means I was getting I knew I was getting somewhere when that happened. And I knew Columbia so that that helped also. And they were willing to make their police department honest. That's the biggest thing. That's amazing. If I do a comp staff program and the police promise crooked, it doesn't work very well. So we got some great reductions there. We did a lot of work. I did work in Ukraine. You know the city, they talk about car cave. The one right on the border, but we did the crime management program for them. And we designed emergency management center for them. And I knew they would hold out. But you're telling me that people around the world were willing to use this to bring crime down and that American mayors have not used this. Except for friends who I have advised off the cuff. No one has ever really taken us in to really do our program. I know it would work. I know if you gave me and three or four people like Bernie Carrick. If you gave me 6 months in Chicago, I could cut the murder rate, I hate to predict. I always predict lower. 20, 30%.
"farc" Discussed on WBUR
"Joined by Paola Gaviria a former presidential adviser on human rights in her home country of Colombia and current director of the peace building foundation also Mariana cassi is a lawyer specializing in transitional justice and the rights of victims She is an associate at the institute for integrated transitions and Bogotá Julia Zoller is an academic specializing in women's response to conflict and violence in Latin America Her new book high risk feminism in Colombia will be published next year To start off I'd like us to listen to the words of Camila that's not her real name We agreed to keep her identity anonymous as she is an ex farc combatant She voluntarily joined the organization in 2004 when she was just 17 years old and now in her 30s she's rebuilding her life with her own business fixing phones and studying languages at university Camila told me she joined the farc because she really loved the camaraderie the friendships the political principles of the organization And I asked if she had seen combat I was detained for a time and I was captured it really difficult it couldn't I was the only survivor of a clash My comrades died near me Very near me So I could hear cries They are moves There was another process after this but I'm the only one who survived that situation So how is Camila feeling now 5 years on from the peace accord Today I feel a bit more alone More isolated as an individual The reason that possibility to speak openly anymore They are more rigs now If you compare it to before I have protection and security I felt calm and I could trust people Now the situation is very different Everybody has to deal with their problems on their own I created this idea in my head about this moment when the peace process will be signed And what it will feel like Coming back to normal life But things have turned out very different and I don't tell people about my personal situation at all Paola when you hear that from Camila how do you reflect on what the 2016 negotiations were trying to achieve And how successful was it Yes I would have to say that listening to Camila brings me to this certainty that female ex combatants they face triple rejections I would say but their families by communities by the political parties and by the government So it's critical that their integration process has sensitive to those identities What she's saying resonates to me what you hear of their experiences in the jungle They were not only combatants using weapons or doing different activities They really were women experiences that there are different roles You know and they gain some experience as we will combatants that those experiences have to be taken into advantage I would say in the implementation phase And that doesn't always happen And as you know in the Colombian farc gorilla at least 30% of the combatants were women so it's very important that their integration is takes into account those different identities And I'm really sorry that she's feeling alone And I think if I could send her a message there's a lot of people here for you And there's a lot of people here that really want you to make your dreams come true And you're not alone I would say that to come in She's not alone Mariana Paula mentioned those who gave up their weapons Can you talk about how people who surrendered after the war were incentivized by the peace accord to lay down those arms There is an issue that is super important if we're talking about Colombia and we're talking about women and the struggle And how we manage to achieve peace Which is how did we manage in Colombia to get women's voices at the negotiating table And this issue is actually an issue very much I would say I would dare to say a very special in Colombia almost unique because the reason why we managed to have such a representation in the negotiating table by women was because of women organizations civil society movement victims organization made out mainly of women Moving the streets asking to be represented demanding to the government and the different delegations at the negotiating table asking to be included And asking for the delegations to acknowledge the specific harms that they had suffered and the and we say this year the exaggerated struggle and the exaggerated harm that women and girls had suffered within the conflict So this is something very unique in the sense that it wasn't necessarily the parties at the negotiating table who said you know it is important to have women or it wasn't necessarily because of the push of the international community It was a push of grassroots organizations a victims organizations of women organizations that pushed the litigations to include them Julia women were involved in negotiations as we know so did that translate to actual action on the ground There was a real push to get them at the negotiating table and to have the creation of a subcommittee on gender And the result of that was that gender and women specific issues around women's rights around rural reform and access to land around women's political participation around victims rights were included throughout the final agreement And that was a real win That's why internationally the Colombian peace accords are often referred to as the most inclusive of gender to date That being said whether or not that's translated into reality over the last 5 years is a different question And the crop institute which is an institute run out of the United States which takes care of independently monitoring the implementation of the peace accords has a report that they release every once in a while on women and whether the gender commitments within the final chords are being reached and whether the government is actually making good on the commitments that they said they are going to make The most recent report I read I think it came out maybe in December of 2020 said that all of the gender commitments there are about a 130 out of 578 commitments within the accords themselves It's said that around a third of those related to gender hadn't even been initiated And that about 45% had only been initiated to a minimum standard That's not to say that nothing has been achieved There absolutely have been some bright spots and some steps forward in terms of women's access to land in terms of women's engagement in political empowerment activities in terms of victims rights but for example when it comes to the women peace builders who we were speaking about earlier we know that they are facing particularly in rural areas attacks from armed groups For various armed groups who are clashing for social and territorial control Camila is an ex farc combatant I wondered how women like herself have been viewed since she laid down arms 5 years ago is there still a stigma The paramilitarism In Colombia the topic of the paramilitaries is very controversial and by talking about it we are supposed to forward this ourselves and our families So there was always a fear of talking about it Today there is a still a lot of risk because the system has been able to identify us So there are a lot of risks I feel annoying when the same thing is getting repeated that women in the work were raped abuse because it was actually the contrary Enemies of the peace process has always been a woman who was a big thing who say how they were mistreated to paint a completely different picture of what really happened And this generates a stigma because it makes us victims of other people It's important to understand that sometimes during the heat of the war people may mistakes but it's important to understand that for the majority of the people that were fighting for something political and that ultimately made us equal and we were assigned jobs regardless of our gender So society in general doesn't accept us They don't care about finding out what really happened in the conflict Regardless of how difficult the stories might be they need to be told They don't understand there is a healing process At the end of the day we all lost There are no winners here Mariana what are the challenges of dealing with sexual violence Camila says she did not see evidence of sexual violence by farc combatants Is her experience typical Actually the challenge of dealing with sexual violence is often the.

"I mean, I was probably top two, three runner in the whole 200 people that were there. How much you weigh going in? Probably one, 85, one 90 or something. And there's pull ups like they could do two, three. If I did ten, I was like, wake seating, push ups, their standards for push ups a lot lower than ours like 50%. So if I max stars out, I was maxing that out, sit ups. They did set up different way than we did, which is easier. So you can actually swing your arms. Anyway, so how long is the school overall? Forever. It's like ten weeks. It might change, but it was ten weeks, and it was from September to halfway through December. And they have three phases. I think they have four phases now, but they had the kind of city week kind of learning all this stuff they had a mountain phase, which wasn't very mountainy. And then they had jungle face. And the jungle phase is rumored to be in a jungle area where the farc may or may not operate. So you get actual real ammo, and you have to put the right ammo when you're attacking the op four that are good guys. Acting like that. So if you mess that up, it can go poorly. There's some serious content. And also at night, when you guard your patrol base, you put live Emma win because. And then you know, at least you're going to be able to sleep because no one's going to attack you because they're going to attack you with me. Put your life on it. And I was like, I could sleep tonight. Put your finger in my hands. We're going to be attacked. Now they didn't have blanke adapters for their Gilles. It was really good. Okay. That were basically, you fire it as it's falling apart and try to put it back together. They're pretty old. And they didn't apply adapter. So when you're doing a raid or array, it's like, bang. Bang. Bang, you know, it's pretty. You're doing more stuff. It's kind of lame. But anyway, so it was hard physically. Walking through the jungle that rhyme is true. That is no show sucks so bad. And every day at 5 o'clock, humidity wise or just sucks. Walking up a mountain of mud, sliding down a mountain of mud, and every day at like four 45, we'd stop to watch the wall of rain come towards us and wash over us, you know? And if we're not camped by then, then we're wet. So we're and we got to worry about trench foot and everything like that pretty bad. Yeah. I'm pretty confident I broke my thumb and reset it myself and the other guy broke a rib because there's some stuff with the hand to hand is like they don't teach you very good hand to hands like basic judo throws and stuff. But then they're like, you and you go. And I want to see blood. So it's just like, bam, bam, bam, bam. The Colombian that was the Columbian American. That was with us. It's just a huge guy. Yeah.

"And so I look at what happens with pfps, and it just seems so obvious now. You know, I regret taking as long as we did with Reddit gold and actually not doubling down on those community elements even sooner. Because it was actually drew Curtis at farc, who I was complaining to over drinks in like 2008, 2009, who said, dude, ad suck, you should just run a system like we have. They had a tote. It was called total farc. And I think it was $10 a month you would pay 15 bucks. And you would just have a little logo next to your name. When you posted on farc, that made you feel special because you were a part of this club. And so it was a status symbol, just a little fave icon size, like 16 by 16 pixel image. Next two username, whenever you posted. And you get access to a special forum. And I'm like, dude, drew, I mean, really, people pay money for this. He's like, no, you don't understand. They pay money for this. And then once you allow them to gift it to one another, they will spend even more. And it blew my mind and so I come back to the team. I'm like, hey, we gotta do some kind of total farc thing. Eventually this ships as Reddit gold, although it was shipped on April fools as Reddit mold, but regardless. I keep going back to web three, but the flywheel I always wanted to create that is happening right now. And this is probably a controversial thing to say. But I really believe that we're going to look at this blip of web two as this weird mistake where we just did the best with what we had because you know yeah, 2005 running online billboards on websites seemed like a pretty good way to make a sustainable business. But mixing it with community, mixing it with social dynamics, mixing it with all the wrong incentives that it creates when at the end of the day you just want engagement and if you had to say, you just want people coming back and clicking and hopefully seeing some more ads. It's actually really unhealthy. And I relish the fact that this system is going to lose quickly because of better user experience is emerging or has emerged. Now that the revenue models actually are aligned between the platforms and the actual creators. You guys have really hit home that web two to web three is a big shift. What should somebody starting a company today, keep in mind.

"A was right next to the bathroom for family. Be something that we wouldn't put up with today. That's old style yeah. Are there any other stories about life there about the keepers and their families. The that standout you. Oh gosh over the years. We've interviewed several people who have come back. Who were kids in the twenties and thirties and lots of Adventures they were sort of free range. Kids i think living at the top of this rock. They did eventually build a road to the bottom but just getting to school for these kids in the late eighteen nineties before they put the road and they put the road in to the top in nineteen hundred for the first eleven years it was just the tramway to get up and down from the top but people didn't ride tramway That was for important stuff like wood and materiel and and not the teacher actually boarded with the head keeper and she would have to walk down the four hundred steps to get to the horse barn at the bottom and then take whatever kids were going with her to school. And that was a three mile track with a horse and buggy and then of course come back the four hundred steps. The kids moving on into the twenties and thirties. They fished off the rocks.

It's not like the bad press is going to mess up his social life for future opportunities for employment right. I'm about due process. But i'm thinking if they're hauling a guy into court who was born like a decade before television existed for potentially being a nazi either germany's court system is more fucked up than ours. the guy's a nazi just like what. Let us know his name. Isn't it though like amazing. How much better other countries are keeping this kind of stuff on anonymous. Us you can't do it.

I turned back around left Deployed again to we went to the sinai peninsula for the multinational force and observer mission. If you're familiar with that it's gosh created in like one Independent the un as a peacekeeping force between egypt and israel. So they're kind of like monitor that strip land but it's fourteen nations a lot of people. You would expect a lot of people you wouldn't so i knew somebody that did that. But they did a lot of scuba diving. Is that because you're right near the. Yeah the red sea's right you could do that I knew somebody did. Yeah so there was all your english speaking commonwealth countries. But then you had like columbia had a battalion over there. Okay which is vacation for them. After fighting the farc fiji maintains the battalion fiji as a huge contributor to un peacekeeping missions. Yeah there there were That were on their fourteenth deployment to this mission or to a un mission. They basically just live abroad. Doing peacekeeping for the un and send remittances back Who else is there. There's excellent assignment. Right nor way in italy and all kinds of interesting groups so i i got to be the units liaison to like the multinational headquarters and stuff at separate camp. That was up north towards the mediterranean closer to the gaza strip. And so i like a separated from the flagpole and spending all my time with other other foreign military partners were you still assigned to three. Ac you're you're you're Attached to basically i was i was still part of like our squadron i was on solo job different camp. How'd you get selected for that. How'd you well sure i guy Pushed his luck with alcohol and was tempted by some of our new zealand and australia. And up. next man up. I've i was working the night shift in the talk. And they're like casey. We're sending you up there and i. I was a little resistant. But it's the best thing ever happened And that was where i realized like. I don't really care about intel at all. I've never really done it because i was maintenance officer now. I'm in egypt working in a talk. And now i'm liaison there's no intel function like. I don't really even know what. I'm doing as intel officer. So how do i find more of what. I'm getting after right now with all these foreign military partners and the answer was ourself. Um so that's when. I put in my paperwork to become a civil affairs officer. It's somebody introduce you to that route. Or how did you find out about it your friend or well. I mean it was. I mentioned to me by there was only one other lieutenant for my unit that was actually on the north camp with me Because we had a military police platoon that was doing security for the north camp. That was part of our squadron so he and his like twenty guys. Were also up there so i was like i had lieutenant buddy from the unit that was there. I was kind of doing my own thing. He was focused on security. Use me for that camp But he wanted to do civil as well. And he mentioned it to me and then out didn't take but like you know a quick read on google. It'd be like well. That sounds pretty interesting. And it fell under the sof umbrella which is something that always interested me because as a cadet i got to spend time with tenth group One summer which was like life changing experience. We did safaa all the shooting and all the school stuff but i realized i really really like the culture where it's certain things are relaxed but more professional community of adults for the most part so i was like okay the this would be a great way to get into soft The kindly gentler side. That works for me what was going to say. What attracted you to civil affairs. But i think you kind of yeah. It was the well one. Like i said i was always interested in trying to get over the soft side but also the opportunity to work with partner nations right other militaries and stuff like that on non connecticut problems. How did the guy that you knew. How did he pitch it. The made you think civil coming. Because there's there's a lot of different i off. Yeah i think he just told me he was looking into it house. Like what's that and he told me about it. I i really don't even remember were you were. You were at a An assignment that s- pretty similar. Yeah and then and then assignment right working with multi nation yeah more than national or civilian component to it it's a peacekeeping thing versus like a i don't know non kinetic type environment. There's still some weirdness going on. Because when i was there. This was right as isis steamrolling. Iraq's so we're all kind of watching from across the water like and then they created an affiliate in the sinai too. So it wasn't it wasn't like there was some element of danger but not really in to an extent. A lot of people were frustrated by that because a lot of the rest of the regiment was on a deployment afghanistan and i. I was kind of disappointed that i didn't get to go do that. But a lot of the people. I knew over there.

Speaking From the Heart with SLP Lauren Sharpe-Payne
"Lauren. Welcome to the wo- med. Thank you in fact i to be here so for those of you who don't know morin. Sharp pain is a speech pathologist. And i have been dying to get speech. Pathologist on the wool med. So when you tell people what you do what's the first thing that they automatically assume. No people automatically assume i work with kids. I just can't sit kids and teach them how to say either s.'s. Or their ps. And i mean with all this do that but i actually work with adults since i think. The stereotype with speech pathology sitting down playing games working on different sounds But there's so much more to it than that so yeah well. I'll admit one of my good friends is literally dreading the day that her two year olds list goes away. It's really cute though because right now. Her z's literally come from the back of her mouth. Like all the kerr molars and she's just adorable. It's really cute it is. Oh my gosh yeah so you mentioned that you work with adults so did you. Is that kind of where you got started with. Everything or your passion really was but actually started my career working with kids. I worked with kids for about two years. Two and a half years and i liked it initially But i quickly found out. Just it wasn't like farc me like it wasn't my passionate area and so i worked really hard to kind of tradition over to the medical side of each pathology and i started working at outpatient rehab. I was seeing a lot of patients who had had strokes in like traumatic brain injuries and swallowing disorders. And i really found that that was really my passion and that's really what made me feel fulfilled at the end of the day. And so that's what i've been doing. Ever since that point. I love that i feel like i. I mean the only real interactions and stuff that i've had working with with speech was i used to work in the nikko. Nice and so. We'd have speech consoles all the time you know. We had like paralyzed vocal. Cords or you know. Cleft lip or palate premiums just couldn't quite figure out how to suck swallow breathe. Exactly yeah echo cool. Yeah so there's just it just sounds like there's so many different fields within so p. wrote there are there are. Mike said i think most of the time. Most people associate s. l. p. With you know working with kids like in the school. I think the school was really popular. But like you said there's so many different areas you know. We can work in hospital. We can work in nursing homes and you know fools and fire practices. So there's there's really a lot of different options in terms of you know where we can work which is really cool. So what led you into this career like how did you first hear about it and you know get interested in it so it's funny excellent to be a lawyer up until my senior year of high school and i remember i had already declared my major and a second of sociology class in high school and their story about the young girl. Her name was genie. I don't know if you've heard the story. But she was locked away for twelve years that her parents never interacted with hers. Get no human interaction and yeah it was. I saw that and like she had no communication at mike whatsoever and so she worked with the speech therapist and he was able to communicate. It wasn't all verbal. Nonverbal buys using pictures. But i thought that was so neat that there was something out there. You could help people communicate and the rest is history. I just fell in love from that point. that's really beautiful So greenwich some little video. Yeah what's the school pathway lake like do you guys have to clinicals. is it Like a bachelors. Is it a doctoral degree. Now or like how like if you're going to coach someone through eight or tell someone you know what they're in for. Yeah so it's four. Years of undergrad And then you have to go to graduate school so for me. My program was in graduate school. But if you don't have speech as an undergraduate degree typically a two and a half maybe three years for the graduate program and then after that your life and your certify after a nine month period. There's no doctoral degree right now. That recommended or like that's required to be a speech pathologist but you can most certainly get them back degree that not in my pets whatsoever But after getting your master's degree through what all the clinical fellowship here and so that nine months after you graduate where you're essentially practicing. Slc like getting a salary and everything. But you're still technically under supervision and so after that nine months Once you have all of your hours your than a certified speech pathologist so you don't need any supervision or you know no one's giving you feedback just kinda on your own completely after that point. Wow yeah is there different routes that you take if you want to be more on the medical side of things versus you know in schools or or working with pedes a good question so i know in graduate school. We do externships so typically if there are two externships one is medical. One is typically pediatrics. might be in the school. There might be private practice. But i know that's alive. Students really kind of narrow down where they want to be in terms of their career so a lot of students. We'll just try to warm more relationships with people a medical they feel like they wanna pursue medical side or vice versa with school side and then with the clinical fellowship years so that nine month period actor graduation many students will try and get their cf wire the clinical fellowship your and that desired area of speech that way after they're done they can't hopefully get a medical job or a pediatric job. You know what they don't need this revision to

"Factions of the FARC guerilla shipped cocaine and marijuana to Brazil. The geography here is harsh and difficult to navigate for outsiders. Locals say the dissidents need guides. People who know the landscape. That's why they come after the indigenous communities that line this river. Because they've lived here forever. Enough. One tiny settlement I meet 14 year old Liliana from the Kobe Oh tribe. She escaped the ranks of the dissident FARC earlier last year. These guerilla factions that either refused to disarm or that have rearmed since their formal demobilization in 2016 has begun to reassert their control over several parts of the country. Miss Dalia and then it quickly you calm your mind. I was dreaming when seven could release a right and told me and my sister that they would kill us if we refuse to go with them. I was very afraid. Liliana says She and her 16 year old sister were taken to a training camp in the neighboring state of Guaviare. E. Macedonia will see they give us a rifle and I felt really bad. It was the first time in my life it ever seen a gun. He taught us how to shoot. I started crying. After three weeks, Lillian and her sister decided to try and escape under the cover of darkness. They made a run for it with several other Children have been abducted. Karima zero Hamas put into you Across the river screaming. We took off our clothes, boots and everything. The others couldn't make it because they didn't take off their boots. They were killed and we survived. Liliana is just one of dozens of teenagers recruited in the Amazon last year. In November alone, 18 teenage boys were abducted from the town of Karu across Colombia, armed groups of fighting over the lucrative elicit drugs trade. The young and vulnerable have become easy targets, especially during the pandemic. King High schools have been closed in Colombia since.
Amazon Deforestation Reaches 12-Year High
"In the Brazilian Amazon has exploded under president Gyre Belson ARO. New data from the country's Space agency shows the rate of deforestation is at a 12 year high. The rain forest is home to approximately one million indigenous people. So what's the impact on on them? them? Gustavo Gustavo Fella Fella does does is is the the founder founder of of Info Info Amazonia, Amazonia, a a data data based based journalism journalism initiative. initiative. He He says says illegal illegal logging, logging, land land grabs grabs for for farming farming and and even even gold gold mining mining has been encouraged by the Bulls in our government. It's threatening indigenous people. So you have a lot of land grabbing and invasions and territories, Indigenous territories by this illegal miners, while the discourse and in both arms of course it's him. I called this is our cat miners. You know these people need to survive and just find some gold in the river is not like that. It's real mining going on were like huge, expensive machines. We've done that need for Macedonia large investigations showing that this is a big business connected to Amster done or Miami and as the pandemic evolves, and gold gets the highest price ever. There's no way of getting out of this because people won't Stop buying gold. The pressure is coming directly to the Amazon and fueling this illegal activities asked me to Boston, hers doing something no, not at all. Both. An arrow has had an ally in President Trump in terms of supporting industry over the environment, But there has been a shift. Incoming President Joe Biden has threatened economic consequences if deforestation continues. Do you think more international pressure could impact both scenarios environmental approach one way It's clear that economic pressure trade barriers my change, but at the same time you see the recent to Abidin mention, kind of energized the base of both of my arms and like that's what they want. They want to our hands on, so he creates a kind of political environment that is prone for the kind of nationalistic discourse as well. Let me ask you this. If pressure from the United States government isn't going to do the trick, then I'm wondering how concerned you are about what is happening in the Amazon and and what you see in the short term as the future there. Look, My main concern is that while this is happening, you know like this back and forth and pressure, international pressure damaged ones get more and more illegal. We know about drug trafficking. Of the FARC in Colombia has operated for years in the Amazon and now the Ambien guerilla group. Exactly so now that they're all mostly done in Colombia, all this trade routes of cocaine have moved to Brazil. The brew and the south part of Venezuela, and the war is fierce there. I don't know if you have looked at some point the home side rates of the Amazon cities right now, they just like the highest in Brazil, because all the you know like a criminal activity off the big centers of the South had moved there because they're trying to control that. And this money is linked to a lot of other illegal activities, including the four station because it's a big way of mounting your money and getting land and it's moving into illegal mining, legal mining off gold. It's huge. Now it's the highest level ever in the Amazon, all the Amazon countries, especially in south part of Venezuela. Which is controlled by the same Gabriel is that left London And so we have a regional security issue that is really building up. Most powerful A Rose is in Sao Paolo.

National Labs Respond to COVID-19
"Joining me today. Chris Fall Director of the Department of Energy Office of Science Chris. Welcome to the show. Thanks or currently facing the threat of cove in nineteen which the World Health Organization has classified as a pandemic when people think of the to an infectious disease like this they usually think of agency is like the CDC or the Department of Health and Human Services. How is the Department of Energy? Been involved in the response to the virus. Well first and foremost the Department of Energy's responding by taking care of its people. I mean we've got a lot of people not just here in Washington but around the country at our labs and sites our first responsibility and what? We're very focused on is making sure they're okay contingency planning for what might come but in any nationally sensitive situation emergency or otherwise. The Department of Energy is here because we've got some responsibilities to the country into the federal system. One is energy right. Our responsibility is to make sure the electrical grid is resilient and working and working with the the private sector that runs that and other elements of of the energy system. Another thing we do is we maintain develop and build the nation's strategic deterrent. It's not something you just walk away from so we need to make sure that's okay. The materials involved with that or secure and so forth and of course we do a lot of science and technology for the country. And so that's an opportunity and in one way that we're responding in particular to this crisis so tell me more about the work that the scientists at our national labs have been doing to understand Covet nineteen sure great question and boy. They've been fantastic in two ways one. Is You know they're always doing science? And technology including on things like viruses. And so they're ready to respond to something like this particular outbreak but they have been doing some particular things. One thing they've been doing is using our x Ray light sources to take pictures essentially of the virus understand the structure of it. And that's a one way to understand how we could impact at virus with drugs for example to shut it down Hand in hand with taking pictures of the next light sources modeling structure of the virus on a computer. We have phenomenal supercomputers we use them for things like modeling viruses. We have the capability to do. Some biochemical characterization in models of disease for example is basic research about how viruses spread in cells and tissues. And how we might measure that so things that could lead to better testing or to vaccines and then the other thing. We do which is actually really interesting as we use supercomputers for something else and as evidence so we can model the spread of a disease like Cova Nineteen in population in our country in the world and so forth and so we use our computers for that four ways. I'm sure there are some others. I'm not thinking of but for big Broadway's that our scientists are working to help with code nineteen right and this is happening so obviously we have seventeen national labs. This is this is happening all across the country at all these different labs who are doing work in these different fields correct. Yeah that's right a different labs have different capabilities but we do have light sources at a number of labs. You've got supercomputers at a number of labs some of those are off society slabs that work more directly with me some than others nuclear labs. They still do work in biology. So not every lab is working on this. Not Every lab has the capability but they are all participating together in a working group that we've put together ask questions. Hey have you thought of this? Did you try that? And experts from all of those laboratories are getting together to answer those questions in response to this virus outbreak. And I think that leads into point I wanted to make about the national labs. Why are they uniquely suited to respond to a crisis challenge such as this? So we do have again. We know we've got When we're talking about a specific crisis like this virus we do have some very special capabilities to handle dangerous things including viruses. Let me talk more. Generally the Department of Energy has some sport. I like to call a super powers when it comes to science and technology and one of those. Is these big user facilities when I say an x Ray Light source? We're talking about something. That's vast bigger than a football field. Could be much bigger than a football field. In diameter a synchrotron that produces special x rays or other instruments are user facilities or one superpower. Scientists scale There are a lot of agencies that are part of the US Science and Technology System do science that fund science uniquely really among all of these agencies is our ability to do big science. Lots of people working on a problem. They know how to work together. They know how to share information and data. So that's a superpower. And then the other thing we really bring relatively uniquely because we have these laboratories we have these physical places that are doing. All different kinds of work is convergent. So you know at one laboratory. We may have biologists. Yes but we have chemists and mathematicians and computer scientists and and physicist and all of those people bring different perspectives to a problem. And so convergence is again is a superpower of the Department of Energy so convergence science at scale and then these world unique really user facilities that we build and maintain and operate on behalf of the country. Can we talk a little bit about pass challenges that the national labs have helped us tackle as anything come to mind you know at the scale of of scientific or human health challenges that the labs have responded to in this way in the past? Let me start by saying. There's something we did that. It wasn't really about a human health challenge but it has completely revolutionized our understanding of humans and human health and human biology. And that's the human genome project. The Department of Energy started the human genome project and then went on to collaborate with the National Institutes of Health. To scale it up and and sequencing entire human genome and now of course that's become routine but we've been in similar situations before and we responded pretty much in the same way when there was the Zeka outbreak when there was the Abullah outbreak are x Ray light sources were used to characterize the pathogens. Take pictures of it we modeled. He is on computers. We did the same epidemiology modeling. We know how to do this stuff. And so when these crises occur people calling the Department of Energy and the disease is clearly a global threat so how is the Department of Energy Coordinating with other agencies? Both at home and abroad sure. That's a great question Let me let me say there are two parts that we started out by talking about responsibilities of the Department of Energy so obviously we are connected with other agencies like homeland security or FARC on things like the electrical grid and making sure we have power and you know if those people get sick or impacted. We have backups. For All of that. We obviously are in constant contact regarding as most agencies. Are this emergency response. Stuff was going on with our people. What's going on? With our sites folks like Homeland Security folks like health and Human Services that are coordinating. The federal government response plugged into all of that and working with them and of course their science and technology and so already we have a long standing deep relationship with the National Institutes of health. I talked about these. Phenomenal world-class user facilities that we support while they're used by the National Institutes of health. All the time routinely notches for a crisis like this But we're absolutely plugged in. You can imagine a crisis late covet. Nineteen a lot of folks are asking what we could do. Including scientists and across the federal government we are coordinated talking to those folks who is best equipped to answer a particular question. How can the Department of Energy help? So we're right there at the tape in times like this. What is something that inspires you or gives you confidence about our ability to rise? This challenge sure That's an easy one. It's the people is the people in the Department of Energy. I gotTa Tell You And not just you know here in headquarters but out across the labs and sites you know. This outbreak popped up and it wasn't a What should we do? Can we go home? sort of Response it was. How can we help and it was more than just? How can we help? Here's all the things that we think that we can do to help. How do we get started You know can we move forward and so that inspires a lot of confidence? When when people see a problem they don't run from it. They run to it and want to know how to help solve IT Director Chris. Fall with the Department of Energy Office of Science. Thank you very much for your time. Thank yous

Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk
Colombia's Uneasy Peace
"The columbia peace deal of two thousand sixteen looked at the time like an unalloyed good news story. It ended more than half a century of civil war for which had left than two hundred sixty thousand people dead and millions more wounded displaced or terrorized. It won a nobel peace. Prize is four columbia's president of the time on manuel santos. Columbia's piece was not perfect indeed the first deal between colombia's government and the colombian rebel group faulk was rejected by colombia's people at a referendum but no peace every is perfect peace requires compromise forgiveness us and patients commodities often in short supply in places recently at war this week. We were reminded of how fragile colombia's peace is. Two former farc commanders announced that they were taking up again was vastly more difficult to stop than start. Every lesson zain about peacemaking has been learned the hard way but in columbia and elsewhere. What do we know about what works and what doesn't if peace is is obviously preferable to war. Why do peace processes so often fail or falter. This is the foreign desk very very few few people people voted voted attended attended for for as as far far as as a a political political party party they'd they'd been been waging waging war war against against the the colombian colombian state state for for fifty fifty years years and and many many colombian cedefop walk as simply narcotraffickers and they couldn't terrorists so they don't have popular support among those colombians rent. A conflict is in in the public attention. That'd be more support when it isn't. There'll be a few international agencies. I'll be a lot of locals still pursuing the goal of peace against strong forces that are reluctant to give up weapons because they're reluctant to give up their power and they're fearful of what it means to give up their how they wear a lot of immediate causative effects less violence more investment stock market than escrow went through the roof and lots more palestinians could cross the border and work in israel but the the enemies of peace force became much stronger than the end. They won the astro. A court was too vulnerable given the counterforces <music>. You're listening to the foreign desk with me andrew muller well. Let's start in columbia and i'm joined from there by monaco's qatar correspondent anastazia maloney anastazia these two former faulk commanders who now proposed to become once again farc commanders hastened sandwich entre yvonne marquez how significant ave as as figures within the movement. They're really significant figures particularly by marcus who go that's his wartime alias. He really was the key negotiator in cuba for several years where he negotiated worth the colombian government government the terms of the peace deal and he appeared on t._v. For years in civilian clothes saint colombians. We've reached us peace a cold world. We are betting on peace so for many people he was the face off peace accords so the fact that he goes on video last week and says i'm. I'm calling on followers to take arms again. It's real bitter blow. <hes> for the peace process will come back to the question of his followers presently presently but first of all his motivations when he says he's returning to war against whom and why so he said that he was disheartened with the peace deal he believes that the government has betrayed the peace deal that is being far too slow to implement the terms the peace accord and he points to the fact that there is no security ford mobilized fighters which the government had promised so he says that demobilize fighters who gave up their weapons were willing to support the peace deal he says about one hundred and fifty people have been killed so far and he said that the government promised to guarantee them securities. That's one of the games that he feels hasn't been addressed by the government. He's also also saying that. He doesn't believe that the government is really committed to this peace accord and those are the main reasons why is decided to go back to to the struggle way scoring a second phase or the armed struggle when he talks about it being a second phase he has also made some reference to this sort of of clandestine political movement that he and his his sandwich claim to be launching as he spelled out what he's ultimate aim actually is does he basically basically just want to resurrect the farc of the half century long civil war recently ended or is he thinking of this as some entirely new apparatus autos and it's really not sure and he wasn't clear in in the statements that he made on the video about his real intentions and how it's going to pan out but what what is clear is that he does have followers there are people who never gave up their weapons and join the peace process and there's about two thousand dissidents as they're known <hes> so when he talks about his followers he's really talking to those dissidents to join in him and as far as who he's fighting. He said that he will be on the offensive and that means that any attacks carried out by state station security forces state military he will respond. It's perhaps not that surprising given how recently columbia's war theoretically ended that somebody with the cachet of his contract and yvonne marquez might be able to find two thousand armed malcontents contents willing to follow them once again but beyond that do they have any actual popular support among the colombian people if they do resurrect a campaign donovan violence anything like what farc wants wrought across the country. Will they have any sympathy at all. Hardly have any sympathy a tool ooh and in fact in the last elections when the far became a political party as a result of the peace accord they did really really badly very few the people voted for the as a political party and their ideology so they'd been waging war against the state for fifty fifty years and many colombians see the farc as simply narcotraffickers and they call terrorists nocco terrorists so they do not have half of popular support among most colombians and support you remember in fact public referendum that asks whether or not the favor of the pizza called it was not passed by half of the voters so the peace accord started off being a very unpopular simply because many colombians don't trust in the fall from their intentions and the fact that even marcus comes video dressed in only the teak surrounded by many guns just basically feeds into the fee he is a skepticism about seventy communes had this peace process of the very beginning so he's that perhaps it right there that the real reason why this faction of faulk faulk at least is contemplating a return to violence is acknowledged -ment on their part really. That's all they've got. I think what they're saying to the dissidents and what they think are their supporters is that we are with you and we are. We are still going to fight for what we believe in and they thought they could do that without arms are now. They going to have to go back to ours because as far as they're concerned they're faithful to the the peace accord so they want to see what they have signed. I should be put into practice and they're saying that we are trying to not going to sit idly and just watch the government do nothing and that's why they are taking up their own again
