"On today's program, I am joined by monocle 24s senior correspondent Fernando Augusto pesche, who has just bustled in here with a bundle, if not an outright chief of Latin American newspapers under one arm. Fernando, are they all full of Colombia's presidential election as we were just discussing? Very much so let's join in Argentina. You know, it's a big headline. I think Colombia is an important country in the region. And it's interesting. I mean, I think there was as Anastasia was saying before a little bit of a surprise that rodo Fernández went to the second round. But at the same time, Alana xion, they wrote an article saying that it's not exactly surprised the Colombians weren't changed, either from the left or from the right, because we hear a lot of positive stories about Colombia in terms of economic growth, but nobody knows that in fact is one of the most unequal countries in the region. So although there is economic growth, it's very unequal in an already very like a region of the world as well. But yes, it is a surprise and maybe from the Brazilian side of things. People are seeing some similarities between rodolf Fernández and Bolsonaro. Of course, completely different political trajectories. Sorry, excuse me, my English here. Better than my Portuguese. Exactly. Exactly. But it's also kind of the decline of the center right, which is an interesting thing we're observing even here in Europe as well. I think basically the rights moving to more populist candidates. And that's happening Latin America as well. So are the Argentinian and Brazilian newspapers doing that thing of looking at the Colombian election, I guess, refracted through their own politics. Does it tell us anything about what's happening here? Very much so, especially in Brazil because we also have an election in October, which it would be basically Bolsonaro against Lula. Bolsonaro's Rudolf Fernández and Gustavo padre will be very much associated. With Lula. And one thing that not many people know is when Colombia they never had a leftist president. Which is quite rare in the region, which in the fact I think at the moment most countries in the region they are being governed by the left or center left. So Colombia would just join this group. So if rodo Fernández win, which I still think it's unlikely, you'd be kind of a in the region a little bit. Why is Colombia historically resistant to that, though, is it just because they plurality of Colombian voters associate leftist with the guerrillas they spent 50 years fighting a Civil War against very much so and we can also never forget about the connection between Colombia and the United States. The United States also saw always saw Colombia's their main align the region. So they always kind of send money to support us to kind of a candidate from the right. So I think they have a quite a unique connection with the United States in their way in that helped them to keep the writing power. Now under the arm in which you weren't carrying a sheaf of Latin American newspapers, you were carrying a sheaf of movie trade press. And there's a couple of cinema stories you want to talk about. Positive stories actually on deadline and The Hollywood Reporter as well. Top Gun, I think we were expecting good numbers, but they're being amazing numbers I have to say, a $250 million in the weekend for the box office. And that's been the biggest Tom Cruise opening ever. And that's incredible because, you know, he's got like decades of incredible films, including the first Top Gun back in 1986, and that just shows his power. He's one of the few kind of actors that people can go to this in, I want to see the latest Tom Cruise. This is becoming rarer and rarer because people go to see Spider-Man or dinosaurs or but not necessarily like a specific actor or actress as well. And we have a result from Cannes, a very controversial one of Ken is always controversial as well. Almost like they do it on purpose so people will talk about it on the radio. I think as well. And it's Ruben Oslo a second Palme d'or. He won with triangle sadness. I think you might be interested to see this Andrew. I mean, I was looking for a car choice. There's no car chase, but there's woody Harrison playing a Marxist yacht captain. Okay, okay. I think I saw the film for you, right? I will concede that I'm mildly intrigued by that premise. Fernando Auguste basche, thank you for joining us. That is all for this edition of the briefing. It was produced by Rhys James A. researcher was Lillian force it and our studio manager was Callum McLean. The briefing returns tomorrow at the same time, I'll be back with the daily at 1800 later today, you will listen to Monica 24 and Andrew mullet, thanks for listening..

"On today's show, nearly 200 million viewers will be tuning in to watch the grand finale of the Eurovision sum contest this weekend. Monica's Eurovision correspondent Fernando Auguste joins me now from Turin. Fernando first of all, congratulations for getting up. I understand it was probably a very late night for you. Very much so, but you know, I'm here anything for you, Georgia. Anything for you. Tell us because of course you were at last night's second semi final round. First of all, I have to say, you know, this is my 7th year vision. I have to say the arena was extremely modern, a very beautiful stage. So a good production for I, the Italian broadcaster, and that's also the stadium where they host the 2006 Winter Olympics. So overall, I think you looked very good for if you were in the audience. And in other words, and that's why it's good to come to your vision and in person. There are people from every single country. So basically, I was set close to two Irish girls. You're a bit sad because Ireland didn't go through in the end. And in front of me, a woman from San Marino at the back there was an Italian guy and me from Brazil. It was a very friendly atmosphere at the arena as well last night. And tell us about the performances. Well, I think it was a very strong semifinal. And even some songs, you know, for example, we all know that the Swedish track is amazing cornea Jacobs did a great job. But seeing her life, I can understand why. You know, the crowd reacted in such a kind of lively manner. But there was some moments of sadness as well, and I have to say, well, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit. But I will say that some arena didn't go through. With his songs stripper, because I mean, the crowd loved it. But perhaps the jury didn't like it. Maybe it was the 11th song that didn't manage to reach the top ten. But yeah, that's kind of the only set thing. Samsung's data managed to go through. And the jury then are voting that sort of in real time there as the performances go on. No, they vote, they vote the day before, actually. There's some artists they have to perform in front of the jury, and that's just for the jury. So apparently they have to vote for that performance that they've seen the day before. So I think it's more kind of the public reacting to the kind of live performances. Now, is Ukraine still the favorite to win? Very much so. And I have to say, you know, the collusion besides, I think it's actually a great track. Besides the sympathy vote, of course, I generally think it's a good song. It's a blend of Ukrainian folk with hip hop and all the vocalists of the ban. I think it's very stylish, who has those shirts of the Ukrainian motifs. But we've kind of some nice modern touches of zoos where like a pink hat. I saw a lot of pink hats in the audience. I have to say, so, you know, if you ask me like a few trends here and there, I think that thing hat is to watch out for. That's extraordinary. So people are really picking up on that really what has become a Ukrainian gesture of solidarity. Absolutely, even I was wearing some sort of shirt. It kind of reminded about the Ukrainian motifs and some people, even asked me that, oh, you're supporting Ukraine. And I said, you know, yes. Because how can I say it's an interesting one? Because a lot of people are also kind of saying, listen, we can't vote for Ukraine just because of what's happening. But it gets a bit confusing here because it is a good song. If he wasn't a bad song, I'll be the one saying, listen, yes, Ukraine deserve it, but you know, it's not their year. But I generally think it's a very strong song. But as I said, there might be surprises, I think UK and Sweden and Italy. They have very strong entries that could have been a winner in any other year. So there might be a smaller chance, but surprises can happen. And so tomorrow night is the big night. It is the big night. And it's nice to see Turing. It's my first time here. And I've been told by our colleague, from touring is a very gentle city in a way. Of course, it's not a big app to. So even though there are a lot of tourists around still feels fairly relaxed and I kind of like that about the city. But the irreversible has been a success as well. They are the part of a particle Valentino here in the city. So far, very well organized. And there's not €1 club this time, Georgina, there ten spaces around town. Usually there's only one space where you can dance to your vision songs. Now they're ten spaces. So I think it's my duty as a professional to go and visit all of them. Absolutely. And just before we go, what are you going to wear for the big night Fernando? That's a very that's a very good question. You know what? I have, again, this assured with Ukrainian motifs. I have two of them. So my word is second one, which is a bit more blue and a pair of shorts as well because it's warm here in Turing. You know, I think it deserves some shorts. Give us some wave because we'll all be watching on television. I will. That was wonderful Fernando Auguste, who check out speaking to us from Turin. And that's all we have time for on today's show. Thanks to our producers, Ben Rhys James,.

Earlier on the stack monocles Fernando Auguste posh echo heard from Alastair mckim, the magazine's current editor in chief Fernanda began by asking Alistair how his passion for ID magazine began. I was born in Belfast and grew up there in the 80s and 90s and moved to Nottingham to go to art school in 97. And the day after I graduated, I moved to London and the day after that I went and knocked on the door ID magazine on tabernacle street in East London, which is a very old school. It was kind of like, I remember at that time I only had an email for like a year or something. So that's why we used to do things, right? We'd go and knock on the door and introduce ourselves. It was my portfolio, and I ended up meeting Edward and in full who we all know is that editor in chief of British Vogue night. He hired me as his assistant when I was 20. So yeah, I guess he liked my design or my work or my photography or whatever it was in my portfolio and ended up giving me an opportunity and I worked with him for a couple of years. And my story with ID is very kind of old school sort of work your way up the ladder like apprenticeship, you know? It's like I started as I said as an assistant to Edward. It is very much a mentor and I assisted him on everything that we're working on at that time like ID, working on fashion shows, consulting, we were working on Italian Vogue, Japanese Vogue, you know, very much that kind of like working freelance career. So I got to really see.

"I sort of mentioned at the top, I mean, we've sort of seen a hive of activity over the last 12 months as people have regained confidence projects more projects have come online. But I think the thing that stands out for me and maybe it's less to do with 2022 for me, it's the fact that good design is probably the same as it was last year when we did the awards. And it's probably the same as it was ten years ago. It's about putting people at the center of your work and about quality and about proving improving quality of life. And I think that's what we've captured here. And I think what we're seeing is that there are plenty of designers all across the globe from Ghana to Switzerland that are working on projects that are delivering those sorts of outcomes. That's also a deputy designer, so Nick managed, thank you very much for joining me today. And don't forget to pick up our copy of Monaco magazine, which is available on all good newsstands today. It is almost 1226 year in London. You are listening to Monaco 24. And finally on today's bro Grammy's first day, which means that Monaco was Fernando Auguste joined me in the studio for this week's edition of the global countdown good afternoon. Fernando. Where are you taking us today? We are going to Portugal, which is a music market that I like not only because of the language, of course, is speak Portuguese being from Brazil. But I like that the Portuguese they're very open to all their loser phone countries, including Brazil, including Angola, Mozambique, among many others. So for example, the list that I'm going to show you, Marcus, perhaps there might be not too many Portuguese artists, but there are quite a nice spread here, including a lot of Brazilians actually. A lot of Portuguese language, sadly. Shall we start with the song that's number 5 this week. Number 5, it is a bit silly. What do you mean? Well, it's funny. It's one of those hit of the summer in a way. Well, let's have a listen to have kind of a plane after that. Oh yes. And number 5 we have Pedro San paio, a singer from Rio de Janeiro. The song is called galapa to gallop. I do watch and follow the quality of her dog listening to bands that they push through by the same people I see people go on style I don't care about I.

"Briefing with me, Andrew mullett, now the first round of France's presidential election is just two days away, and we have invited into the studio monocle 24s election aficionado, although perhaps connoisseur would be a better word. Fernando Augusto Pesci, who will tell us how this is being covered in the international papers. Fernando regular listeners will recall that in the first of our current series of monologues on the French presidential election, I did do one saying that it is kind of amazing that we don't pay almost as much to French presidential attention to French presidential elections as we do to U.S. presidential elections. This is an important job. It does really matter who has it. And given the likely alternatives this time, it really matters who has it. So what's your sense? Is it that the international media is beginning to get the idea that French presidential elections do actually matter? I think so. And you know, and I think in some regions of the world, I think perhaps they are actually covert pretty well. I would say, for example, in Africa in general in Latin America, I think it is an important election as you rightly said, because France is an important role in the world, perhaps. Huge, bigger than their size in a way. And you mentioned there are the United States. So I was looking at the American press. I mean, there are some articles I think they could be even more in depth, but I wonder if we can start to The Washington Post. Of course, it's a very not a regional look. But they are saying, what does it mean for the U.S.? And it might mean a lot. Of course, if Macron wings perhaps it's not going to change, much, but if you look at the other candidates, le pen, Mellon shown or Zimmer, if they win, the relationship of the U.S. will be completely different because as the article said, both have expressed skepticism of U.S. foreign policy in the past. And I do think if they do win, it will be a massive kind of break. And as you know, France has been one of the most important allies of the United States. Some people even say more than England. More than the UK in a way. So it would be quite interesting. I think it will matter for the American audience as well. Well, it is a global spectacle, and again, it is, I think, often forgotten that France does have a huge global presence and a global reach much of it linked to its own imperial past, much like the United Kingdom's. And a huge amount of attention is being paid in the Pacific and R and Z have been looking at it. They've been looking at it in a very good, very in depth article there with their Pacific coverage. Let's look at New Caledonia. They had a referendum last year to see if they want to become independent. They decided to stay to be part of France. So I'm looking here at the numbers. Apparently the pro independence parties, they are not actually commenting that much on the elections. They say they have no favorites. The anti independence and let's remember they did win the referendum. They are all behind Macron. But looking at the numbers and during the last election, Macron won 52% in New Caledonia, solar pan got about 48. So it is very close. So maybe le pen could have a chance there. So Macron, he wrote a letter to the overseas territory saying, you know, there will be more investment in the region that he didn't forget it. Other candidates did the same, but I think could be quite important from Akron to get that a vote as well. I mean, I'm mentioning you Caledonia, but you know, we can talk about French Polynesia and other areas as well. Well, let's have a look at how your homeland is covering it. Is it all being framed through the prospect of a bellicose populist ending up in charge? I got the S's and the S the wrong way around Bella coast populous. I meant to say bellicose populist, ending up in charge in France, as well as Brazil. A theme Brazil the story is all about, again, Bolsonaro and let's remember, we also have an election in October. And I think both candidates, they have a different view. So they're saying about the similarities between marine le pen and Bolsonaro of course. They are considered on the far right spectrum of things. But marine le pen interesting enough, she tried to say, well, I'm not as bad as Bolsonaro didn't say those things about women and gays. But I do think they do have a lot of similarities. But one thing I can tell you Bolsonaro would definitely he doesn't want a Macron victory because of course let's remember he was very disrespectful to Macron's wife. They have a little bit of a beef there. And in effect, even the commercial relationship between both countries. But if you're curious lulin Dilma, they are throwing their support to melon shone. In fact, there's been a long time friend from both former presidents as well. And just finally, France is, of course, plagued with a class of actors musicians and other celebrities. Whose opinions for some reason are deemed interesting at a moment like this, so what do we know about which French actor is voting for which candidate? I was curious about their one and thankfully four le poem magazine they decided to have a look at some of the French celebrities and who they are voting on the edge of my seat. Exactly. Well, it's an important one. Of course, she's not doing very well. But she got a vote of island alum. Well, that's something. I mean, he said that she's the only woman he would like to see for the presidency, even jihadi party, which I thought he was more to the far right, but he said he wouldn't mind seeing her in power as well. A surprise here is Brigitte Bardot. Yes, it's always a bit of a surprise. We all thought that she was going to go to Eric zamor, you know. The word we is doing a lot of work Fernando, there were those of us who simply didn't care. Exactly, perhaps I did. But she changed her voice. She's going to the ecologist Nicolas DuPont Ayman. And idol, of course, again, not doing very audible, but Elton John supports her account. I have a feeling that he's not afraid. But if you ask me, who are the president that would win, if only celebrities could vote, I would say Jean Jean Luc Mellon shown as well. But of course. Is Elton John the only just foreign rando they ask? Do we also have the views of, I don't know the bass player from Def Leppard and Christopher, and I don't know why I'm thinking of these people. I should do a more in depth look, but according to LeBron art school, to enjoy was the only foreign kind of artist they've asked their opinion, interesting enough. Riveting. Fernando, thank you, as always, that was our senior correspondent Fernando Auguste Pesci. You're listening to the briefing on monocle 24. This is the.

"On the briefing on monocle 24. And welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me Andrew Muller, at least 30 people are reported dead and more than a hundred injured in a Russian rocket strike on a train station in kramatorsk, a city in Ukraine's Donetsk region, thousands of people were at the station responding to Ukrainian government instructions to leave cities in the east as fast as possible in anticipation of a renewed Russian offensive. On the diplomatic front, European Commission president Ursula von der leyen is traveling to Kyiv by train, along with Slovak prime minister edouard heger and EU foreign policy chief Joseph borell to meet Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky. This is what the former Ukrainian politician had to tell the globalist a little earlier about the prospect of a fresh Russian assault. My brother sends me a message every day from the front line and yesterday's message was we're getting transferred. And of course, he can't say where, but I always ask where, and then you'll think he replied was to help. So I think that's what we are expecting in the east. Sometimes we have seen notifications being sent out to the citizens in the eastern Ukraine, especially in nipro. Urging civilians to leave their homes because I think they're expecting some serious damage to be done there. And when it comes to urban warfare, it's very difficult. I mean, especially for Ukrainian defenders. The destruction is going to be on a massive level and at least trying to save civilians would be the number one priority now. Speaking to us earlier, I'm joined now by lada rositi founder of black trident, a defense and security consulting group in Ukraine. Lada so far as it is possible to tell what do Russia's aims appear to be now. Russia's Ames have not changed. It is out for the destruction and over empowerment of Ukraine and its people. I mean, does it now look to you more like they are interested in actual conquest of the Donbass region or does it look more like this is going to follow the example of Mario pole and this is more likely to be just a war of plain and simple destruction. They're using tactics of playing destruction of cities, towns, people's lives. But we have to keep it in context with their desire to first and foremost create this. And that rusty mayor must contain that eastern part of Ukraine that they are going to be really hammering soon, including the basin so that the southern part of Ukraine on the Black Sea and what is very concerning is the movements that we are starting to get reports of happening in Transnistria, which is in Moldova. The Moldovan approach will make this a war even more serious because it will extend it into another sovereign state Moldova. If what you're saying is correct and it would certainly seem of a peace with Russia's behavior so far, does it suggest to you that they are abandoning any pretense even of wanting to protect the people of eastern Ukraine from whatever it was Russia thought it was protecting them from. I think that a country that has been removed from the United Nations Human Rights Council is the last country in the world that you would want to go to be protected by. And it's extremely cynical to believe even that the Russian Federation has interest in protecting human lives, albeit Ukrainians or their own. President zelensky, as you will have heard, has urged people to be prepared for the fact that what will be revealed in borodianka and other places in terms of atrocities against civilians is likely to exceed anything what we've already done, what we've already seen horrific though that has been. What's your assessment of what the scale of Russia's atrocities in the area in the areas it held is going to end up looking like? I think we're going to be seeing atrocities not seen since World War II. And these war crimes are committed systematically and each of those war crimes because it is systematic and targeting Ukrainians does amount to genocide. So it's extremely important to be looking at which countries could be leading an independent commission or investigation into what is happening in Ukraine. And to that end, the collection of evidence is extremely important. I mean, the Russians have formally come out and they claim that all the dead people are actors. And the charred bodies of children are also child actors or mannequins. So it's really important that we have integrity and objectivity while collecting evidence to show that this aggression is just inhuman. What's your assessment of what effect the revelations of these atrocities is having on the mood of Ukraine's people and Ukraine's government, this must surely be making people much less reluctant to engage in any talks or discussions much less compromises with Russia. Well, yes, Ukrainians are not ready to compromise with Russia, but the positive aspect of it is that there has been a significant shift on the international community side. So many countries which have been complacent are now actually quite shocked and horrified and agree that these atrocities have to be stopped. So I'm really interested in seeing how this will develop on the international scale. On the ground in Ukraine, we will see much death in much slaughter, but the Ukrainians are committed to protecting their own territory and their sovereignty, freedom, liberty, when other states, including Western Allies who promise to do so are basically leaving them out on their own to fight. Well, on that thought then on the international response, how important even at a cosmetic optics level is the appearance of somebody as high profile as the EC president traveling by train to Kyiv. I was incredibly important. And we have also the latvians, the Turks as well. Slovakian. So this is a very positive movement. And it's giving hope to a lot of people myself included, actually. And I think that a lot of people were disappointed with the fear expressed by Pope Francis of coming to Kyiv. So these diplomats who are making their move to Kyiv, their acting in a very heroic manner and May they be blessed to really do some good in bringing an end to this aggression. A lot of rositi in Ukraine. Thank you, as always, for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is monocles MSL with the day's other headlines. Thanks very much, Andrew. France's far right presidential candidate marine le pen is continuing to close the gap on Emmanuel Macron ahead of the first round of the country's election on Sunday, our senior correspondent Fernando Auguste Pacheco will tell us how the contest is being covered in the international press shortly. China's president Xi Jinping has celebrated the stars of his nation's Winter Olympics at an official bash in Beijing, the ceremony which featured senior members of the Communist Party has been taking place as authorities in the city of Shanghai, continued to battle a huge COVID-19 outbreak..

"Republican find themselves caught between the far right and the president, while on the other side of the political spectrum, melancholy can make the most of popular discontent with the rising cost of living, and the sentiment that Macron a one time socialist minister has sold his soul to the rich. If peck has failed to get into the runoff, her party is likely to split. Already some prominent members have peeled off, either to join the president's camp or to line up with the far right. Though Macron's reelection seems highly likely, French politics will remain turbulent. That was the author and journalist Jonathan fenby, you are listening to the briefing on monocle 24. And finally on today's broker and monocles, senior correspondent Fernando Auguste versus returned from his holy day and is here to unpack and action packed night at the Oscars in Los Angeles. He was very action packed, Marcus. Exactly. I think my first question is, do you think anyone will actually remember this year's awards ceremony for its winners? One easy question, a reply to, of course, not. And I will explain to you why, first of all, let's hear a clip which I'm sure many people have seen it, but let's have a listen. Jada, I love you. And two can't wait to see it. All right? Uh oh, Richard. Oh, wow. Wow. Will Smith is smack the shit out of me. Out your fucking mouth. Wow, dude. Yes. It was a GI changeup. I'm going to, okay? Okay. That was greatest night in the history of television. Okay. Okay. That was very awkward. Interesting to hear that again, markers because, you know, of course, I've seen it live and it was very confusing at the beginning of him many people agree with me that we thought it was staged at the beginning, but of course when Will Smith said his words and let's remember he was swearing on live television, which I don't think kind of is permitted. So it was a moment that it's almost unfortunate because we had so many great moments at the Oscars, but I think everybody will be talking about this. This is the main story. Apparently he apologized to Chris Rock. The academy said that they don't condone violence, but it was kind of weird because after this happened, nobody was kind of talking about it. It was kind of a changed the mood of the program for sure. You know, so the last hour of the show he felt awkward in a way. Changed, by the way, after that. I mean, I was a bit stunned. And I think like the members of the audience in a way as well. And as I said, Will Smith at least I had this image of him being a good guy if you know what I mean. You wouldn't expect this from him. But I think we'll be talking about this for days and days markers. Well, let's talk about the show itself, now how different was it for last year? Well, first of all, it's very happy to say that we have hosts because I think the Oscars for a few years they decided not to have hosts, which I don't think make it for a good show. I'm not saying that Amy Schumer vendor Sykes in Regina hall were the best hosts ever. There was some good jokes in there, like the joke of all the narrative, leaving the planet for his very young girlfriends in a way. But it's nice. It gives some structure to the show. And I think that's what the Oscars tried to do this year to be more kind of a old fashioned entertaining show. And the opening was a bit of a surprise as well, Mark, because they started with beyond the performing one of her songs that was nominated for king Richard. They knew they were dealing with a big star and they've enjoyed that. She was wearing an incredible lime green outfit..

"Business with Helen Morrissey, senior pensions and retirement analyst at Hargreaves lansdown. Helen, thanks for joining us. We're continuing to look at the impact of the conflict in Ukraine on economies around the world. What's happening in Japan? Yeah, it's been a really, really interesting couple of days with regards to the different central banks approach to interest rates. So we've had the fed and the Bank of England in recent days choosing to high interest rates and the both of them very, very vocal and saying that there's more to come, you know, inflation is spiraling out of control and that more interest rate rises will be needed to try and curtail that. Now the bank of Japan had their own meeting yesterday and they've taken a different approach and they've chosen to maintain their interest rate target after the zero minus the 0.1%. Now this isn't because Japanese consumers aren't feeling the impact of inflation and they do recognize this. We've seen kind of rising gas and electricity bills. They're also seeing rising food costs as well. But what the bank of Japan has said is that they see these recent kind of energy driven price rises as being largely transitory and so this is kind of part of the reason why they've chosen to keep interest rates where they are. They've also said that the economy is picking up after the pandemic and that there is also obviously very high uncertainty as a result of the Russia Ukraine conflict and they don't know quite yet the potential impact that's going to have on Japan's economy going forward. It May of course have a big humanitarian impact, though, on other parts of the world, the OECD is warning of huge problems if wheat exports are stopped. Yes, it's a really, really interesting report in that it says that while busher and Ukraine, their economies are relatively small and a global scale, they're absolute powerhouses when it comes to production of the likes of wheat. So Russia and Ukraine currently account for about 30% of all global wheat sports. And if you look at other countries say in the Middle East, they are very, very dependent. It could be like up to three quarters of their total we come from these two countries and so if they were to stop, that could have a really, really big impact on people, people being able to ease, and it was saying that could risk a sharp increase in poverty and hunger, another interesting thing that was highlighted is that obviously the real powerhouse is when it comes to supplying gas and obviously that's an important important to things like fertilizer production. And that if this was disrupted, then the coming years of agricultural output for some countries could be put under severe stress as well. So use some real long-term impact, globally as a result of this conflict. And this very, very quickly, Helen, could you just tell us what P and O ferries have done? Yes, a P and O ferries have made 800 of its staff redundant. Effective immediately, drawn over Zoom. And they also choose to cancel all of their services for the next few days. The staff were told that a big announcement was coming. They knew the company was in difficulty, but they were told that it wasn't going to go on but what they were told was that they were going to be major redundant. They had to get off the ships that they were on, and that they were going to be replaced by cheaper agency staff. It's really very bad look, isn't it? I mean, it's terrible. I mean, it's caused real to stay not only kind of among the staff themselves, but the unions, if furious, politically as well, because P and O did take quite a lot of money during the fellow scheme to try and support its business. And so it's facing calls to pay that money back. Helen, thank you very much indeed. That's Helen Morrissey. This is the globalist. And finally, we talk about the American song contest, which will debut on NBC this coming Monday. The show is hosted by Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson, it'll have one entry from each one of the 50 U.S. states plus 5 territories and the nation's capital. Well, how will the show look? Eurovision correspondent Fernando Auguste Pacheco spoke to the executive producer Audrey Morrissey, no relation to our previous guests to find out. Fernando began by asking Audrey if she was familiar with Eurovision. I get that question asked a lot. And so the truth is I, of course, knew of it. If you work in the music business, even just a little bit, you know of it, but I mean, I have to admit, I truly didn't understand the full scope and really what it meant. And how long it's been running. And so obviously after I signed up to do this show, I did a little bit of a deep dive. And the Swedish producers that have come over to bring this format over have been wonderful. They've been just such great partners teaching me all about it and really been a wonderful aid in helping mount this show here. And I think the interesting thing, especially for the U.S. market, that is a different type of competition. I mean, you've worked yourself with the voice, which is a brilliant, incredibly successful show. But that's kind of a different context, right? Because you'll be now state against state. So it's quite exciting to see how the U.S. will react, right? Yeah, exactly. I mean, the two big things are one, it's really a professional platform. These are for pros. These are for people who are committed to making music, their life's work, and what they do. And two, this state interstate inter territory competition is something very new for us. We really don't have much outside of politics, so this is a little different. And a chance for people to get out their state pride. Well, talking about state pride, which state are you from actually? I mean, who will be representing your state? Well, I'm very happy to report I'm from Connecticut originally and Michael Bolden is representing my state. So I'm feeling really good. About Connecticut in this competition. One thing that is quite interesting, our group, because I've been watching your revision for years. But the format, of course, there's some tweaks here and there. So for example, it would be quite spread out to show, right? So will it be for 8 weeks, correct? It will be for 8 weeks. Yeah, it'll be once a week for 8 weeks, but the show is in three phases. We have the qualifiers, which will be the first 5 weeks where we will cycle through all 56 artists and songs, participating and competing. Then we move to two weeks of our semifinals will cut from 56 to 22. And then after those two weeks, we'll move on to the grand final, where we will have ten finalists. I have to congratulate you on the choice of hosts. I think it's such an interesting combo.

"Opposition to his attempted economic reforms and anger over the cost of living, as seen in the so called yellow vest protests four years ago. If he is reelected, such domestic challenges exacerbated by the Ukraine war are likely to haunt his second term. Mary Fitzgerald, they're speaking to us from Mars day, you are listening to the briefing on a monocle 24. And find me on today's program we are going to take a closer look at some of the days papers from around the world with Monaco senior correspondent Fernando Auguste, good afternoon to you. Good afternoon, Mark, because I'll take you on a World War. Worldwide tour today. And we start in Colombia. I understand. Yeah, very interesting weekend in Colombia. We have LTM Po here, one of the bestselling papers in Colombia. They had primaries. There may election were being made. But in Colombia, they do every single kind of the left wing, the right wing and the centrist coalition. You know, they vote in the primaries. There's been no surprises here, Marcus, Gustavo Petro from the left wing coalition. He won with over 80% of the vote, so very much a favorite, and in the right wing one as well. Federico Gutierrez. So there's heaven being big changes. But the interesting thing here, Mark, was I mean, looking at Colombia and the elections. If Gustavo Petro wins is the first time the Colombia will have a left wing leader. And if he is one of the only countries in the region that still didn't get one, so I think we quite an interesting one to look out for. How do you think that would change Columbia if it caught its first left wing president? I think it would be an interesting experience like Brazil in 2002 when Lula was elected. And again, Colombia is a very strong ally of the U.S.. I wonder how much this will change things as well. And even though Gustavo Petro is a former guerrilla member and there are some concerns among some in the Colombian society, but I have a feeling that you will probably move a little bit to the center if elected president, but that's just a gas, of course. Well, let's continue then with news from the UK. You've been reading today's edition of the daily tiller craft, haven't you? Yes, so they are reviewing the BAFTA's, which I was watching last night as well. And I have to tell you Marcus, I always had a little bit of a problem with the baftas because I always thought they were a bit too fast if I say, you know, they have with their cirque du Soleil performances and long boring tributes in a way and join a lonely and steering fry hosting, which is quite boring. I have to say, but I think less wrong word. Well, I'm so sorry for that, you know? But I think it was a little bit better yesterday. A Rebel Wilson was hosting. I'm not saying she's the best host, but he added a little bit more vibrance to the whole thing. But let's talk about the winners here. I think The Power of the Dog no surprise here. They won best director best film. That could pave the way for success at the Oscars as well. But there's some interesting ones as well. For best actress, it's a film that I have to be honest, I haven't seen it. It's a very small film, a bit of a surprise here, Johannes conlan for after love, and a kind of like this type of surprise when I watch an awards ceremony, because it's like, oh, hold on a second. I haven't seen that film, so I might want to check it out. So yeah, the buffers were not all bad, Marcus. After British Academy Film Awards, let's continue with Eurovision. I think this is something that you have been supporting from many newspapers from around the world. Yes. And of course, now we have all the 40 tracks, 40 artists, there will compete in Turing this year, so Sweden, Iceland, and Portugal. They had their national finals, and they finally selected their candidates. And Marcus, it's interesting to look because I had a look at all the 40 entries. There's some quite exotic ones this year's Serbia, there is a song about kind of Meghan Markle's beauty regime. It's very remarkable because it says, oh, Meghan Markle shares healthy hair. I wonder if there's a critique about society, student understand the critique, but I promise you, by your revision time, I will know. And there's the Norwegians dressed as wolves as well, give the wolf a banana. Apparently they're the 7 favorites to win. Who are the other favorites? I mean, like, you know, you are a Eurovision expert. So you've heard all those songs now, so which country is going to win this year? No surprise here, but Ukraine is the favorite. It is a good track, but of course I think they have the sympathy votes for everything that's been happening. So I wonder how this will work out as well, because everybody, I mean, and I have to say the song is not bad at all. But I wouldn't say it's the best one as well. Italy is coming out very strong. They're the second favorites. I wonder if we're going to have a double winners. What about the Swedes? The Swedes, they're always good. Number three cornelia J cobbs had a very strong ballad and I had a lot of friends who were watching mellow the festival and they were like, you know what? We want her to win. And you know, they're always good to sweets. There's never surprise there. That's true. That's true. Well, finally, Fernando, it seems that the beaches in Rio are an incredibly happening place. Once again, you have news from there. I mean, you've been reading a global. That's where Brazilian society works at the beach. I think there's no country like it as Brazil because they're so close to the city, especially in Rio de Janeiro, but the story on no global today that they're saying that the traditional beach kiosks, their modernizing a little bit, which means, for example, if you want to parasol or chair on the beach, now we can use QR codes. You can pay with credit card. That's a big change markers because everything as a kid when I go to the beach, I always take money with me because, you know, if you want to buy coconut water, you always pay with cash, or if you want to parasite, I don't know, the price actually, they can be quite expensive in Rio, but now apparently become easier, but I am a little bit concerned. Why? Because it's fine, keep the QR codes, the credit cards. But I hope the cash option still remains. Otherwise, I don't know. I think I like cash. And I think a lot of people still like cash and they don't want to use QR codes. But have you ever been in a situation you've gone to that beach, for example, you realize you don't have cash? I'm very well prepared. I have to say, so, and to be honest, if you don't have cash, just don't use the chair, just stay in the sand. But you know, that's my view. Burn yourself without the parasite. Exactly. Fernando August, thank you very much for joining us today. And that is all for this edition of the briefing. It was produced by Emma Cerro and researched by Samson bogo, our studio manager was Chris devans with editing assistance from norah hill, the briefing is back tomorrow at the same time, that's us 2100 in Tokyo 1300 in Zürich midday hearing London.

"Heineken says that production advertising and sale of the Heineken brand will halt immediately, carlsberg, which is Russia's largest brewer through its ownership of baltica breweries, said last week it's halting new investment in Russia as well as exports of the country from other cars companies. It's really been ramping up this Coca-Cola at Starbucks temporary halting operations in Russia in TensorFlow that backlash since the invasion of Ukraine. PepsiCo was saying that it will suspend soft drink cells in Russian as well. But it has a slightly more difficult decision to take. It's going to continue to sell daily essentials like milk and baby formula. Of course, companies providing food and essential goods to Russians have a tricky balance to strike really because they kind of just pull these things leaving the population stranded. But yeah, PepsiCo is stopping soft drink sales. Yum Brands is temporarily closing all of its KFC restaurants that it owns in Russia. And it says it's close to an agreement with its franchisee to suspend a Pizza Hut operations there and PayPal saying it's suspending services in the country. Perhaps most iconic within the last 24 hours. McDonald's says it is closing temporarily at least all of its 850 branches across Russia. There is such a long list of businesses pots from Bloomberg. Thank you very much for joining us today. And finally today, we're going to take a closer look at the day's papers with Monaco's senior correspondent Fernando Auguste Bosco, how are you doing today? Very good markers very good. The first story we have to talk about is, for example, on today's edition of the Financial Times very interesting news, first talks between the United States and Venezuela since 2019 are taking place. I find this incredibly interesting. There's been talks over the week in the U.S. sent a delegation to Caracas to meet president Nicolas Maduro. And Marcus, here is a country Trump basically cut off relations with Venezuela in 2019. And the U.S. used to buy was the main buyer of oil from Venezuela, in fact. So I think that was the main point of the discussion because now the U.S. have to find an alternative oil supplier to Russia. But the problem here is Maduro is very much an ally of Russia and Putin. But I was surprised about what he said about the meeting. He said, you know, it was respectful, was cordial, so he felt that there was something positive about the meeting. We don't know yet what's going to happen, but I wonder if that's a way of the U.S. to move in as well. A little bit closer to the United States. I mean, I kind of very much doubt that they would be kind of strong allies so quickly. But that's being an interesting move I found. What is your impression how dependent is Venezuela at the moment for its alliance with Russia? I mean, that's how Venezuela in a way survived their recent economic crisis with support from Cuba from Russia and China. But now with this with the war in Ukraine and of course, there will be all sorts of economic difficulties. They might lose some of the economic support and maybe that's why Maduro is saying kind of this mildly positive words about the United States. Let's continue then with news from Brazil from oak lobo. COVID update. Yes. Some interesting COVID updates from Brazil or global, which is the newspaper of choice for Rio de Janeiro. Basically Rio became the first captain in Brazil to kind of say you don't need to wear a mask in closed spaces. But the interesting story here that even though you don't need to wear a mask anymore, most people were wearing a mask in public transport and Marcus, you know I was there back in January. It's quite interesting to see the differences between even the UK and Brazil everyone was wearing a mask. It's like a common choice. There's almost no, there's no movements. There's no anti mask wear or anti vaccine movements as well. There's some impressive stats as well. If you look at the city of São Paulo, 98.86% of people over 5 years old have been vaccinated. So in that sense, Brazil is doing quite well when it comes to vaccination rates. And everybody's kind of using masks. And it's always like the anti waxer movement is not particularly strong looking at that number how many people have been vaccinated. It's negligent. I'm sure there are kind of a few dozen, but it's almost, it doesn't count, which is quite interesting at any of it baffles many people because president Jade Bolsonaro, he would clearly be someone that you would associate with a kind of an anti vaccine movement, but even his supporters don't care. And I think that Mark was because Brazil has a long tradition with all sorts of tropical diseases. I think when it comes to health, even the most right wing of Brazilians would not listen to the words of jair Bolsonaro. Now Fernando, when we talk about Brazil and we have yui in the studio, there's one reoccurring theme that seems to pop up every now and then. You've been reading the magazine version. What's on the pages of that? That's respected magazine. Very respected the bestselling news weekly in Brazil. So basically the return of nudity and sex to television. Was it ever a way? It was. It was a way. Well, between the north is I would say, because the 90s markers was the peak of erotic trailers, the Brazilian soaps, in fact. I mean, there were so many sex scenes, but something has changed. People became a little bit more puritanical, but there's been a return to that on television, and that's not just a Brazilian thing. I mean, if you look at the series from the United States here in Europe, look at euphoria and just like that, you see much more nudity now. So TV, for example, if you look at cinema, everybody's watching the marvel superheroes. But I think cinema. Sorry, television is becoming a little bit, you know, spice here in a way, or kind of a sexier as well. Just quickly, I know you've got an opinion on this. Why do we need more nudity on television according to Ferdinand I was a Prosecco. I think it's part of human life. I mean, I can't imagine watching a soap opera without sex and nudity, I think you'll be such a shame. And that's why they did the story because there is an upcoming soap opera, which is set in the wetlands of Brazil, pantanal, and everybody goes to the river. It's a remake of a 90s soap. So I don't know if I dare to watch that to find out what's happening in the Brasília and wetlands. It's an interesting story. And it's a trend. It's a trend. I might come back actually and talk about this topic more often review markers. Okay, sure, Vernon I was supposed to go thank you very much for joining us here on the briefing. And that was all for today's edition of this program. It was produced by Rhys James, our researcher was Samson Boko and our studio manisha was Chris, a black one. The briefing is back tomorrow at the same time.
