"fifty ton" Discussed on One Life Radio Podcast

"But you know so. Let's go back to vitamin c. Concerning what hospitals are doing our most hospitals using vitamin c. To treat these diseases today or is there still a resistance enormous resistance. I must say though. One unintended and beneficial consequence of this pandemic was. It is focused a spotlight spotlight on vitamin c. As is never occurred before and sort of like The expression goes to cat got out of the bag and a lot of vitamin c. Started being used early on the pandemic and in my judgment quickly. Got out there before the fda could start issuing mandates as to don't use vitamin c. for this or don't use vitamin c. For that and too many people are already getting dramatic results very early on the pandemic and entire network of hospitals. Some twenty plus hospitals in new york began using vitamin c with excellent results. Still not as good as they could have because even the hospitals that are using the vitamin c. And the positions that are out there that are fighting the establishment of using vitamins. D still aren't using high enough doses. That's another story. It's also very interesting to note that. Virtually all of the significant investigations on high dose vitamin c. and treating clinical disorders comes from china. About the same time that the Will hand area started getting heavily infected with colbert or whatever this infectious pathogen is or whatever this agent is one of the areas in china shipped manufacturing vitamin c. Shift fifty tons of vitamin c powder to wuhan kinda tells you that the chinese new right up what the best thing was to deal with that if you ship fifty tons of vitamin c powdered any city in the united states would have sat on the warehouse until the turn brown. I believe that. I read in the epoch times that they didn't article that covered it back. I don't know probably six months ago. It's a weekly newspaper that i get. I don't know if you're familiar with that but Yeah they they featured an article that said that that's what Went china was using to fight. Fed was vitamin c and vitamin of course but yeah and very effectively. Yeah well so. So what type of vitamin c. Cause i do the liposuction. We'll packets and i am also have bought. Dr mccullough's liposuction vitamin c. By the way he was on the show yesterday and he said he's a good friend of yours. so how. how awesome is that back to back that you guys sir. Yeah and so are you. Is i greatly respect his courage because he's out poking the bear in the eye and that was that's what needs to be done and he needs somebody brave to do it. So hats off to dr where cola and is long-term fight for medical freedom and doing things correctly as well as he's fighting against the political consequences which is unfortunately inextricably interwoven with everything that we're doing here. I mean you have on. We talked earlier. And i mean healthcare. Make no doubt about. It is a business and foremost absolutely. I mean just anybody i mean. Nobody likes to take that. Their doctors doing anything less than what's in their best interest. Well i'm sorry that's the exception and not the rule okay. I don't know why this shocked so many people of the pharmaceutical companies placed enormous pressure on doctors and doctors. Don't like to be hassled. So they just promote the pharmaceutical drugs. Make a lot of money. Say well this is what Our new england journal medicine said to do which is also supported by the pharmaceuticals but unfortunately the docs take it too far. And i can't tell you the number of emails. I've had over the years with desperate individuals begging begging their doctors in the intensive care unit to give their loved ones..

The Archeological Dig of Gobekli Tepe

"When close schmidt began his excavation of go. Beckley tempe in nineteen ninety-four. He had no idea what he was going to find. And by the way the name go beckley tempe in turkish means pot belly hill. The spot was a hill. That had been previously noted in an archaeological survey conducted by the universities of istanbul in chicago in nineteen sixty three. They noted the presence of stone tools as well as some stones sticking out of the ground which they thought were gravestones based on work. At previous sites schmidt realized the stone sticking out of the ground might not be headstones but could be ancient monoliths as he began his dig. He realized that his hunch was correct. The stones work gravestones but were in fact carved ancient monoliths as the dig progressed over the years. They discovered a much larger complex. There were multiple monoliths with elaborate carvings on them. Some of them had pictures of animals and people. The large megaliths stood about fifteen feet or five meters tall. These were surrounded by circular walls. In the at twenty of these circular enclosures that have been discovered so far. The largest megalithic which has been discovered is seven meters or twenty three feet tall and is estimated to weigh fifty tons. The entire complex is located on the top of a hill which has a great view of the surrounding countryside and it isn't near any source of water. There were cisterns found at the site which were designed to collect rainwater. Whoever built this clearly had some form of societal organization in the ability to move large stones in addition to doing artistic carvings. If this was all there was to beckley tepi this would still be incredible find however there was more much more. They found embers from cooking fires on the site and did radiocarbon dating on them. They were also able to date. Many of the tools found at the site. What they discovered was astounding. They were dated as being eleven thousand years old.

The Story of Miss Baker - Space Monkey

"Okay so what was the plan. Were they going to do with these. Twenty-six tiny cute monkeys already worried about them. Yeah so nasa wasn't a thing until nineteen fifty eight so for years. The army and the navy have been running these tests to see if it's safe to send humans to space and that's where these twenty-six tiny monkeys come in. So were they going to send all twenty six of these monkeys into space or was there like some kind of training tiny centrifuges how they just please imagine for a moment a monkey training montage. They had to go through like stimulated flights and lab testing. And you know stress testing like they were looking for the smartest calmest monkey to send to space. Yeah i'm totally imagining the monkey version of the right stuff. And i'm sure this isn't isn't true but i'm picturing like tiny silver jumpsuits and little monkeys walking down the tarmac in slow motion for sure. That is what i'm picturing. So it all sounds really cute. Little monkey nuts blazing a trail to the stars. But actually the us government at this point has been trying for a decade to bring a monkey back alive so starting in nineteen forty eight we had albert. The i went down to the tail. Explosion albert the second valve failure alpert. The third parachute didn't open i. I mean it's interesting and this is like it's both totally awful but gives you some sense of why they're doing these experiments right because they're going to send people into space plans to send people into space years out from sending people to space and so far there just you know. Just a bunch of dead monkeys. This is i mean so. This is pretty grim up until we get to miss baker. How did they end up choosing miss baker. So it's spring of nineteen fifty-nine. There's all launch scheduled. And so the navy basically narrows it down to one candidate and its tiny female squirrel. Monkey barely on adults. And she's teeny tiny. You hold her in your hands She has this adorable little like white mask on her face. You know tiny little like bear shaped ears a long tail super long fingers. Ucr your heart just goes out to her and the researchers really liked this particular monkey. The even named her tlc for tender loving care. They basically figure if she she was the smartest the most docile and that she was the best candidate for this mission little known fact nineties hip hop group. Tlc named after her frie- you music box out there. Score that one away. That's that that's not true so the mission was coming up and all higher ups like we. We can't call her. Tlc that's not. That's not going to sound good over the radio. And so they renamed her baker specifically they renamed her miss baker and her co pilot for the mission was another monkey and they call her. Ms able and so finally. It's may twenty eight one thousand nine hundred. Ninety nine launched a cape canaveral. They load miss baker up into this really scary looking contraption it's like a water bottle or metal thermos and she's wrapped up in there like a mummy in this little jacket and she able or walked out onto the tarmac where they launched all the ships and they're loaded into the top of a rocket fifty ton jupiter rocket fifty tonnes for two tiny monkeys. Okay so they're on top of this building sized fifty ten rocket they're tiny they're cute and this giant rocket this big launch. It's all for them. There's nothing else going on today so owning to thirty five. Am one lengthening. We have looked up thirty monkeys strapped in escaping from the gravity of earth and into space at one point. They're moving at ten thousand miles per hour. Just imagine flint would be terrifying for anybody much less a monkey in total they spend about fifteen minutes in space and then the nosecone detaches from the rocket and it begins the descent. Forty-five minutes after the launch. The nosecone splashes down about two hundred fifty miles off the coast of puerto rico. Just after five. Am that morning. The uss kua pulls up at picks up the nose cone and everyone is very nervous. They were desperate for these monkeys to have survived. So one of the guys aboard ship popped open the nose cone and both the monkeys were alive. Everyone was just everyone was so happy. They radio back to cape canaveral and they said able baker are perfect. No no problems after unwrapping her from her coat and her thermos one of the guys on the ship gave miss baker at a little cookie. And so it was. It was a huge success because these were the first monkeys to return alive from space. Oh wow yeah and these were like the first american animals to kind of come back in one piece and you know like at this point. This is the middle of the space race. There's a lot riding on this as a very very geopolitically important little tiny monkey yeah she was a big deal and you would be for the rest of your life so immediately miss baker in her co-pilot miss able are shipped off to washington. Dc for a press conference because our what do you mean a press conference the monkeys you gotta understand there now vip very important primates but four days after the landing something really sad happens miss able dies in a freak accident and so now. Miss baker is the only the only monkey to return alive from space and america's only animal astronaut to have survived. And so that just kind of makes her even more special there. Were you know newsreels about her children's books printed about her or she gets fanmail especially from children. She was on good morning. America at one point. She got double billing with the jackson five. That is famous. Yeah i also. I also love post her career in science her life kind of like moves into the gossip pages. A little more public figures like that like they do something you know like kind of given a title. She's called america's first lady in space. That's how she was seen so miss baker after her flight. She goes back to pensacola. You know there's a yearly parade in her honor but mostly she settles down. You know her handlers. Even get her a companion. Another squirrel monkey named big george and after a while the hands even hold a wedding for them so like many young couples miss baker in big george moved to a bigger place. The newly built us space and rocket center huntsville alabama and by. Now it's nine thousand nine hundred seventy one and it's been more than a decade since miss baker took her spaceflight so big george eventually passes away and miss baker immediately married off again to another monkey. And it's very celebrity. It's very tabloid. The space center even sends out engraved invitations and has a real judge into the fishy eight And they dress up miss baker in like a train veil. She actually rips off a couple minutes into the ceremony. Good for you good for you. Miss baker and so she you you just get this idea of like how precious she was to people in nineteen eighty-four. She dies of acute kidney failure. She's twenty seven years old and at this point. She is the longest known living squirrel monkey in history. She at this point. She's broken every single record for like the average lifespan of a squirrel monkey. So miss baker's led this long life. She had like an official wedding when she died where she given. The same treatment was a funeral. Or what happened. Oh yeah she was sent off in style she was buried right outside of the. Us rocketed space center and three hundred people showed up just to witness her being laid to rest. I saw some pictures to like flower. Reason like these signs saying you know like miss baker america's first lady of space born nineteen fifty seven died nine hundred eighty four. And you know she was that day she was laid to rest next big george who had been buried there for a couple of years now. That's nice that's nice

Is Student Loan Forgiveness A Good Idea?

"Right now on the. Us government federal balance sheet there's loan receivables over a trillion dollars of student loan debt sitting there as a receivable for the fiscal year ending nineteen total assets of the federal government worth three point nine trillion of which one point one trillion was direct student loans. But here's the thing. Three point nine. Trillion in assets twenty six point nine trillion in liabilities. The difference the deficit is twenty two point nine trillion dollars. The us government is effectively insolvent. It does more than its assets. And if the us government road off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans it would just increase the level of insolvency. It would not sink. The government by any means the education department according to some private consulting work that they contract it out understand what the potential losses are on their student loans found. According to a report by the wall street journal that losses on the one point three seven dollars of student loans outstanding at the time this report was compiled would equal four hundred and thirty five billion dollars. Only nine hundred and thirty five billion would be paid back and that didn't include about one hundred fifty tonnes originated by private lenders that are guaranteed by the government each year. The government lends a hundred billion dollars to students to cover tuition to more than six thousand. Colleges and universities doesn't look at credit scores or the field of study or whether students will make enough after graduating to cover the debt. The wall street journal article reported that between two thousand five in two thousand sixteen four intent student loans. Most of them federal went went to borrowers with credit scores below the subprime threshold. That's assuming they actually had a credit score. Which at the time. That i took out my first student loan which i'll talk about a little later in this episode. I didn't have a credit score. Nor frankly i know what i was doing. But here's the thing. The consultants found out that a major driver of those losses were students. Who went on some type of income driven repayment plan. An income share to wear they only had to pay a percentage of their income and ultimately the loan could be forgiven after a number of years. If a loan isn't paid back in full because the payments are based on income in income isn't growing and ultimately the alone is written off after twenty years or so then that will lead to a loss in addition that study found that there are millions of other borrowers that would default on smaller amounts typically less than ten thousand dollars after the drop out of a community college or a for profit college one of the comments in this wall street journal article on the private consultants conclusion regarding the potential losses. For the us government. Student loan program is that taxpayers would be on the hook for this if the government off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans. Us government would receive less interest income and principal payments annually interest if we assume a five percent interest rate on one and a half trillion dollars of student. Loans is is only about eighty five billion dollars. now. I say only because total. Us government revenue is three point four trillion dollars. Interest income from student loans is only about two and a half percent expenditures in fiscal year. Twenty twenty six and a half trillion dollars. The deficit was three point. One trillion fourteen point seven percent of economic output or gdp nominal gdp and fiscal year. Two thousand twenty was twenty one point two trillion dollars. This deficit was fourteen point seven percent of that number the highest since the great financial crisis where the deficit was nine point. Eight percent the highest deficit ever was in nineteen forty three at twenty nine point six percent of gdp. The us ran three point. One trillion deficit in twenty twenty and the federal reserve increased the amount of treasuries on their balance sheet essentially funding that deficit. Two point two trillion dollars is the additional treasury bonds that the federal reserve bought so two point two trillion of the three point one trillion dollar deficit. These student loans are tiny percent of what the government is spending much of which the federal reserve financed indirectly. Veterans are didn't just give the money to the treasury. they went through the county mechanism of buying treasury bonds. But that's what happened. The federal reserve created the money out of thin air to purchase treasury bonds to plug the deficit now when i started hearing about forgiving student. Loans cancelling them. My impression was the student loan. Burden is as high as it's ever been. That students are struggling tremendously compared to when i took out student loans in the late eighties and early nineties. What i found was the average student loan and again this is based on data from marc canter wits. This is just the average student loan balance for graduates with bachelor's degree when they leave school in one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety-three. It was ninety three hundred dollars. Forty six percent of students had student loan debt. That's about how much i had little over ten thousand dollars in student loans. When i left graduate school today. The average student loan balance is twenty nine thousand nine hundred dollars just for students. With bachelor's degrees sixty nine percent of graduating students have student loan balances. That amount going from ninety three hundred to twenty nine thousand. Nine hundred was a four point. Six percent annual increase. Now that's a burden no doubt and if it growing at four point six percent it's growing faster than inflation yet if i look at what students are making when they graduate in nineteen ninety-three or year after they graduated so in nineteen ninety-four an engineer. Starting salary was thirty thousand. Nine hundred dollars. A humanities graduate was making twenty one thousand three hundred dollars so if we compare that salary to the amount of their debt engineer made three point three times. The amount of student loan debt they had and the humanities major may two point three times the amount of student loan debt they have if we look at what engineers typically make coming out of university. Today it's close to seventy thousand dollars or about two point three times the amount of their student debt back in one thousand nine hundred. They made three point three times the amount that they owed now. It's two point three times so they own more relative to their salary but the interest rates are lower now. So they're able to handle that. But it's not this huge change that i had expected for the humanities graduate. They went from earning two point. Three times Student loan balance to one point eight times now. Part of that is pell. Grants which are grants given to low income students to essentially pay for school. I got a lot of pell grants when i went to school. That program has only grown about three point nine percent per year the maximum payout amount per student so it has not grown as fast as student debt levels. Now we can say well may be. College graduates are able to find jobs. The unemployment rate for recent graduates was five point one percent in nineteen ninety-two it was three point. Nine percent before the pandemic hit in february twenty twenty and so a greater percentage of recent graduates had jobs in early. Twenty twenty then back in nineteen ninety-two now. The unemployment rate at least in september was nine point one percent according to some data from the new york fed which suggests that yeah Graduates are struggling to get jobs. It is harder today than it was in nineteen ninety two but not that much difficult. And i don't recall calls to cancel student. Loan debt back in the early to the mid ninety s

Lebanon tribunal names 4 suspects in Hariri killing

"Is more than. Fifteen years since Lebanon's Prime Minister Rafic, Hariri was killed in a massive car bomb along with twenty one others. Later today an international caught near The Hague will hand down verdicts in the trial of four people accused of planning and carrying out the attack the four accused of of the Iran backed militia and political party. Hasballah. Hezbollah itself is not formally accused. Well, let's hear from the journalist and multiple twenty four regular contributor in Beirut Leyla Milana Allen Lali you're standing outside the very hotel in front of which Rafic Hariri was killed. What sense is in Beirut today that the justice will be done. There is very little sense. the families, all of the twenty one people other than because eighty who were killed as well as the nearly three hundred injured have waited as you say, over fifteen years justice taking a very long time this commission to come through with this, and the problems are a few of course many people here feel that the responsibility lies with the Syrian regime and through has through then has one. and. The five men on trial here all labeled as Hezbollah supporters because they found it very difficult to actually find evidence to show that they his bumbling members because, of course. Is So secretive I'm one of the biggest problems is that must have budgeted dean who was the main sort of ringleader debt these indictments who was accused of having set. The whole thing was known very well as the military imam to Hezbollah was killed in two thousand sixteen an attack on Damascus APP while his was helping Bashar Assad's regime with the wool there. So he was the one person who is very easy to link to Hezbollah and the only evidence they have all circumstantial evidence from these mobile phone networks. So as we expected, the indictment will come through the verdict will. Saying that before remaining men all guilty lane attempts about those who are accused of the murder of the prime minister. said a five men who stand accused have all been labeled Hezbollah supporters and that's because it's incredibly difficult to prove that they were in fact, Hezbollah members everyone in Lebanon believes that that. The majority of people believe that Kennedy was assassinated at because he was starting to pull away from supporting the Syrian regime who'd had troops stationed in Lebanon nearly thirty years all the way through the civil war and afterwards, and of course, we now know that Hezbollah very heavily H. Two zero. But this was all just sort of starting not link between Syria and Iran and Hezbollah but the main man was accused of being the ringleader. Organized the whole nation is most of that that the WHO was very well known as the head of the military wing of Hezbollah but he was killed in two, thousand sixteen and attacks Damascus Apple, which means he's no longer in the indictments and he was the only person. It was very easy to direct the link because there was evidence that he walls a top commander in. Bola. So I, the that means that it's very unlikely has itself will be named in the verdict today it will simply be. These men and then these men haven't been found the Lebanese government has been able to find. Her Bella is a big portion Lebanese government and the chief of Hezbollah nationalize long maintained that he absolutely does not see any of independence in this inquiry he says that it's funded by Israel and he says that there is no way that they will ever hand over these suspects old they will ever be found and historic has very good at hiding its top guys who've been involved in operations in. Lebanon in Syria and even Iran many think that these four worship over to Iran. So even if that comes through in the verdict is guilty as we expect, there's not really going to be any justice indeed has on Rolla said that Hezbollah isn't worried or isn't remotely concerned with today's verdicts but what will the repercussions be? The repercussions are unlikely to be much at this point, and that's for a few reasons I, Ne- as I said standing outside the. Hotel, which at the time in two, thousand and five win this thousand kilograms of TNT when pages devastating crater in the middle of the road and destroying all the buildings around loons lodge in the public consciousness here you there had been assassinations in the years off the list of this by the largest active. So many people because whoever was responsible really wasn't taking any chances and it was enormous copy. And other than the two thousand, six war with Israel, which was very different because it's a war in terms of an explosion going off in a very recognizable. Popular Ponte. out of nowhere that was the one that was remembered. Of course, until two weeks ago, two, thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. In the port, just a few hundred meters down the road from this hotel. Injuring seven thousand people or more chilling up to two hundred, and still don't have a full body copy. What is still missing Susan now is far more would have. Done that assassination the other thing is that at the time, it was very shocking that people. Had Eighty was really associated with post for Lebanon. He was the symbol of course will Lebanon deeply loved by international leaders around the world as well as many Lebanese and so the idea that the Syrian regime would dad's kill him has would dare to kill him with. So shocking even though of course, assassinations were quite common but he was he was such. An important figure now firstly, since then of course, we've seen brushing Alaska wage a almost decade long bloody war against his own citizens in Syria we've seen very clearly now those strong legs between Hezbollah Syria and Iran Hezbollah work soldiers full bachelor says regime in the civil war in Syria. So nobody would be remote. You surprised now that that they all responsible. And the other issue of course is the fact that. Sad had eighty I think Kennedy some kind of stepped in his stead very much because he was the son and that's why he was given so much faith especially young age and has become such an important figure in politics here. But in the last year, we've seen a rudy seismic shift in Lebanese. Politics. People say that happens every fifteen years the lost round with two, thousand, five, thousand, and six before the civil war ended in one, thousand, nine, hundred before about. It started in nineteen, seventy five, and now of two, thousand, one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty weeks but newest protest movement Saudi the is very much seen as one of those political elites people out. So the younger generation at least don't have that same attachment to the family and time to seeing them as such an important force a good and for future movements, which is what that party is called Ford Movement in Lebanon So really this bird apartment, of course for the families. Of those killed and injured is not really going to have that much of an impact with so much else going on right now.

Lebanon's entire government resigns amid anger over Beirut explosion

"A week after a massive explosion to. All parts of the Lebanese city of Beirut. Apart, the entire government has resigned the massive blast was caused whenever two thousand tons of ammonium nitrate which had been stored unsafely at the port for six years exploded killing over two hundred people injuring more than six thousand and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless over the weekend residents of Beirut demonstrated against the government calling for the removal of the entire political class due to their negligence and corruption. Joining us once again from Beirut is Layla Milana Allen Leyla when we spoke to you yesterday, five politicians had resigned so far. Tell us about the announcement made last night by the prime minister. So what we saw yesterday and the evening before session, all government ministers resigning. We also saw several NPR's goes well, Megyn went from protesters. Here we go one by one this many left to go. and. Then there was the resignation of the finance minister as he wasn't he just before that meeting that was supposed to in the afternoon that cabinet meeting in which prime minister the APP had said that he was going to a table a motion. To try and have the elections is at the State Petunia. So. How's it wasn't said that he would suspend his his resignation until off the meeting they went in and they spent two thousand not room. Getting. Rumors from quite early on in fact, the entire government was going to resign because there were two ways that this could happen. Either has MD could resign himself or if more than a third of his ministers resigned, that would make his cabinet untenable already looking at five. So essentially, just two more and they were already two minutes to said before they went through, they would resign if the government didn't as Walter a couple of hours they came out and those announcement saying that he would speak in the evening. And when he did speak, he came forward and he said. That they had tried their best to be transparent tried to Rama transparent government. She's January failed to impose some of the reforms that Lebanon. So desperately needed but endemic corruption in the government had made it impossible to do so had caused this tragedy. Now, of course, many people don't feel that's the case they feel that the government was not run transparently at all. Or none of the reforms that has promised January. Would be done in six months word done within six months, and of course we now know. That both the president and the prime. minister. WED Two thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of money not great was in the Port as worse excessive government none of them do anything about it. So the government's gone but is going to be a change in the system will the same sectarian politics driving the unrest still exist? Not at the moment now, sectarian politics is really driving some rest. There are a few elements here. Firstly, the the problem with the government system is not that it's impossible to run because the country says sectarian, it's the it's impossible to have a government which allows the country to not be sectarian young people on the streets is saying that's not what they want. They want to country that will come together and work together where people are elected based on their merit not based on what sector they come from but because the political system is original on these lines where each sect gets a certain number of seats innocent area firstly, it's impossible to have that kind of government that is responsible for the entire country doesn't have. Interest in certain places, and secondly, it means only a certain kind of person can be elected because there is such entrenched nepotism in politics and you need the money and connections to be able to run and succeed. So right now, what's going to happen is that as we saw late last year when Prime Minister I've had resigned, the current government will stay on in a Catholic capacity. There's not much they can do in that capacity they will meet rally and they will only be able to put in bills or emergency bills to keep the country going, of course, Lebanon ready needed proper legislation to come in and change things before this explosion now, really function of government. To get things moving the country who built and help people that's not going to happen under a caretaker government but the system is so complex in terms of trying to elect a new prime minister different block in Palm. As I say, these different sectarian blocks have to agree on the candidates and then he has to find a cabinet that pleases all of this -Tarian blocks each of whom will want their own cows come in that. Again, what we're going to see in the coming weeks is this political game. All aimed at making the right formation balance of people in power rob. Then a government trudy is just focused on what is best for the Lebanese people purchase street saying this is the same old system. Nothing's going to change a new election won't help us. Cabinet won't help us. We need a complete overhaul of its system which has dragging us down and letting the country move forward.

beirut explosion latest news

"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

A broken system, a broken city: Beirut

"In Beirut yesterday countless people began the painful work of fixing homes devastated by a massive explosion on Tuesday. One woman who'd mlk posted a video of her mother-in-law playing the piano as others swept up broken glass. The music is bittersweet, the city is reeling. The moment of the blast no one was quite sure what had happened there was a deep bass sound for seven or eight seconds there was a rumbling. and. We thought it was a localized explosion, maybe a gas main that had blown up across the street or a car bomb in the neighborhood. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent. I A cafe. everyone, of course, left the cafe and started making their way home and it was only on the way back down towards the three Indian towards the ports that I started to realize the scale of the damage. There was, of course, broken glass everywhere carpeting, all of the streets all at the sidewalks pass through an intersection where there were several women sitting in the median holding cloth scraps of fabric bleeding from the head they'd obviously been hit by glass. And every building that you pass by not only the windows blown out but the aluminum window frames blown off. So. You realize that this was not a localized incident, but rather something that had affected the entire city center. The blast was felt as far away as Cyprus it registered as an earthquake in Jordan. It had come from the port of Beirut or something had set off an explosion of staggering size sending up a white mushroom cloud then a vast bloom of orange smoke. Yesterday the government placed a number of court officials under house arrest and again investigation. Declared a two weeks state of emergency. Residents are still coming to grips with the shock of the blast. Felt like it went inside us like a best our soul the way. I saw something bright and I lost my hearing for few seconds. An explosion just went out. The human toll of the explosion has been catastrophic the death toll officially more than one hundred so far, and that number continues to grow as rescue workers find victims who were buried in the rubble more than five thousand people injured by the blast and many of them had to go into a hospital system that was already stretched thin. We've had a spike in corona virus cases in Lebanon over the past few weeks, some hospitals themselves were damaged by the explosion hospital Saint George Hospital across the street from where I live. was so badly damaged that it had to halt operations and when I went by the hospital, you saw patients some of them still wearing their hospital gowns with intravenous lines in their arms bloodied from flying debris and shrapnel for nurses were killed. Fifteen patients on respirators died when the machines failed the other immediate impact is according to officials in Lebanon about three hundred thousand people were left homeless by the explosion. About five percent of the population of the entire country and what do we know so far about what caused the explosion? It seems to be the result of unbelievable negligence even on the scale of the perennially negligent Lebanese government back in two thousand thirteen customs officials in Lebanon confiscated the cargo of a Russian ownership that was traveling to Mozambique. The cargo was two, thousand, seven, hundred, fifty tons of ammonium nitrate, which is highly explosive chemical that is used mostly to make either fertilizers or explosives from mining and quarrying and other industrial uses. So this material was confiscated, it was put in a warehouse at the port and for six or seven years it just south there there was some talk of maybe exporting the stuff for giving it to the army to use but this required approval from the Lebanese judiciary that approval never came you've had officials at the ports and with insecurity agencies who warned this was tantamount to keeping a giant bomb on the doorstep of the country's capital. Those warnings went unheeded and of course, tragically on Tuesday it all exploded but I mean what kind of government would ignore warnings about tons and tons and tons of explosive material just sitting in a city centre the Lebanese government would it's almost par for the course for Lebanon's political class. This is the government that for more than a decade could not agree on a budget. This is the government that for almost thirty years allowed the same central banker to run the Central Bank Lubin, and to run effectively state-sanctioned Ponzi scheme to defend the currency peg it's a country that created a political and economic model that was totally unsustainable. Invested hardly at all in basic services even in good times, Lebanon can't provide twenty four hour electricity routinely struggles to pick up the trash piles up in the streets. It is a perennially negligent government and this is of course, a catastrophic example of that but it's of a piece with the behavior of this government over the past thirty years. So this is a population economy that was suffering quite a bit even before the blast it was the country has been slipping into a profound economic crisis since October the the currency. Lebanese. Pound which for decades has been pegged to the dollar. Began to break away from that since October? It's lost about eighty percent of its value on the black market which has contributed to runaway inflation in a country that imports almost everything from food and fuel to consumer goods. So, inflation running around eighty percent right now and for food around two hundred percent prices have become astronomical this summer we've had fuel shortages that have caused blackouts in Beirut normally three hours a day stretch as long as twenty hours a day this summer and the backup generators that people rely on to provide electricity when the state cannot those are either burning out from overuse or running out of fuel just one crisis after another point. which has led to widespread poverty in the country the the official figures the government thinks around half the country is now below the poverty line that could rise as high as seventy five percent. By the end of the year, there's been a spike in petty crime driven simply desperation. There was one man who was caught on TV robbing a pharmacy for diapers another man who robbed someone at knifepoint on the streets and a once busy part of town, and then came back to apologize for doing it and said, he he needed the money to his family. So it sounds a a years long problem has gotten really quite a lot worse very recently mean why hasn't the government been able to sort of keep things from getting so much worse? The current government was installed in January meant to be a technocratic government that would tackle this economic crisis and negotiate a rescue agreement with the IMF but. Six or seven months later it's made almost no progress. The negotiations with the IMF have really stalled at this point they've had about twenty rounds of talks. But is not even really negotiating with the IMF yet it's still negotiating with itself. You have the cabinet on one side. And the parliament on the other backed up by the banking sector. which are having this very arcane dispute about the scale of the losses in Lebanon's financial sector about how bankrupt the country is effectively. And so you have this surreal situation where instead of Lebanon negotiating with the IMF Lebanon is negotiating with Lebanon. The Fund has told Lebanon that talks are not going to advance unless there's an agreement on the size of the losses or if the cabinet pushes through a few meaningful reform of capital controls, law changes to the electricity sector things like that. Neither of these things have happened and there are increasing calls for the government to step down. Do you think that's the way forward I? Mean, what do you think should be done here to to bring Lebanon back to? A functional state though the problem is if this government steps down what replaces this government and a lot of the pressure on the government right now is is coming from the traditional powerbrokers in Lebanon the sectarian X. warlords who have divvied up power in this country for decades since the end of the civil war in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, this power sharing agreement they have it was designed to keep the peace and prevent a return to conflict after the war. But it's been captured by the. Hands up power based on sect, which runs a massive patronage network The World Bank estimates that it costs the country about nine percent of its GDP each year but if it were to step down without broader changes to the country's political system in this power, sharing system would simply be replaced by the same cast of characters who have ruined the country over the past thirty years. But that power sharing system was was there to to keep the peace to prevent a return to civil war, and that was the argument for years for decades when people in Lebanon would complain about the corruption and. The negligence and the inefficiency of their government, the response would be well at least this is better than a return to the bad old days even before what happened on. Tuesday even before the explosion though that argument was beginning to lose its weights with a lot of people here you have a younger generation of Lebanese who don't have the same memory of course of the civil war that their parents or their grandparents had, and so as the country slipped further and further into crisis over the past year, people have been more willing to to break away from this system than they were before. And I think the argument that well, there could be violence if the power-sharing system was stripped away after what happened on Tuesday after half of Beirut was destroyed by the incompetence of this government I think that argument is not going to carry with a lot of people.

Negligence probed in deadly Beirut blast.

"Probing the deadly blast that ripped across Beirut focused on Wednesday on possible negligence in the storage of tons of highly explosive fertilizer in a waterfront warehouse while the government ordered the house arrest of several port officials. International aid flights began to arrive as Lebanon's leaders struggled to deal with the widespread damage in shocking aftermath of Tuesday's blast, which the Health Ministry said killed one hundred and thirty five people and injured around five thousand others. Public anger mounted against the ruling elite that is being blamed for the chronic mismanagement and carelessness that leads to the disaster. The Port of Beirut and customs office is notorious for being one of the most corrupt and lucrative institutions in Lebanon with various factions and politicians including Hezbollah hold sway. The investigation is focusing on how two thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. A highly explosive chemical used in fertilizers came to be stored at the facility for six years and why nothing was done about it losses from the blaster estimated to be between ten and fifteen billion dollars with nearly three hundred, thousand people. Now, homeless hospitals were overwhelmed by the injured one that was damaged in the blast hat to evacuate all its patients to A. Nearby field for treatment fueling speculation that negligence was to blame for the accident. An official letter circulating online showed the head of the Customs Department had warned repeatedly over the years that the huge stockpile of ammonium nitrate stored in the port was a danger and had asked judicial offices for a ruling on a way to remove it the head of the Customs Department confirmed that they were five or six such letters to the judiciary. The Congo had been stored at the port since it was confiscated from a Russian ship in two thousand, thirteen on Tuesday it is believed to have detonated after a fire broke out

Notre Dame Fire; Pilgrim Trails

"Let's start today's show remembering the impact of the fire. That damaged Notre Dame cathedral in Paris one year ago with thirteen million visitors a year. The medieval masterpiece had attracting more visitors than Saint Peter's Basilica Elaine Sciolino correspondent in Paris since two thousand and two and she describes how the river that surrounds Notre Dom came to the rescue in her book. The Sam the river that made Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Where were you and I know how much you love Paris? What was it like when you heard about the fire at the Notre Dame on April fifteen twenty nineteen? I live in Paris Rick and I happened to have been in New York at the time and I was in an office building and suddenly looked at a TV screen and there was CNN with the Notre. Dom Inflames I mean my city by cathedral and I was so my first questions were did anyone die and was it terrorism and once it was just established that it was a terrible accident and no one died. I was relieved because I was confident. Even at that very moment that it would be rebuilt. Maybe different but it would survive. It had to yeah now you were probably celebrating the fact that you've got this wonderful book. The send the river that made Paris just coming out in actuality in a Lotta ways. It was the send that enabled the firefighters to save the Cathedral. Well I got a phone call from my husband who was watching all of this on French TV in Paris and he said Lane. You're not gonNA believe this but I'm watching television and there is a boat that seems to be pumping water up to the firefighters on the land into the Cathedral. And I knew at that moment I had to write another chapter about the Senate and its role in helping to put out the fire at Notre Dumb. Thank God they had access to all that water when you think of the structure of a Gothic Cathedral. A lot of people don't realize it but there's huge oak beams there's a whole structure between the ceiling and the roof and it's the network of Oak Beams. The roof would be a lead covered roof. Eight hundred years old. I've seen in museums gargoyles with molten lead spewing out their mouth you know cooling and freezing their when you've had a fire like this. I mean it's just a nightmare when I've got the cathedral bursts into flames. I agree one hundred percent with you. It was an absolute nightmare and it affected people in very strange ways being people who had no real religious connection with Notre Dom we're weeping in the streets and people around the world were mourning the fact that this edifice that too many represents the heart and soul of Paris was on the verge of destruction. No I understand that the nineteenth century spire which in your chapter you you say has five hundred tons of Oak. Two hundred and fifty tons of lead fell three hundred feet crashing to the ground. It's amazing that the entire church didn't collapse A lot of people don't realize that stone gets compromised in heat and giant stone. Buildings can fall down because of a fire with the firefighters who belonged to the French military. They're not part of the city of Paris Force went into action as if it was a military operation and the commander of the firefighters sent some of his team into the burning north tower risking their lives to try to cool down that tower. Which we still don't know one year later. Is it completely intact or does it need to be supported in some way? Now that must have been quite a dramatic decision because you can stand back and make sure nobody is endangers way and then the tower would have collapsed or you can send your firefighters in risking a situation like on nine eleven when the trade towers collapsed and all the firefighters inside would perish again. Thank goodness five. Hundred firefighters participated. They took the bold move they rushed in. They called the church and they say the north tower will general galet. Who is the commander of the firefighters spent time in Afghanistan and he had studied also the nine eleven tragedy in the United States? But he had to go to the president of France to get permission to send his firefighters in. Anybody told the president is if we don't do this. We're half an hour away from Notre Dom collapsing. That is amazing. You know we can more in the church. We can love the church but as hard get into the heart in the mind of Parisians. What does it mean to Paris? I mean it just seems like of course. You've got the zero point in front right. Everything is majored in France from the Notre Dame. Its place where they're kings have been coronated through the centuries in so many ways it's the cultural heart of the city even back before the advent of Christianity there was a temple. Can You Peter Right there? Can you talk a little bit about the Notre Dame as that heart and soul of the Great City of Paris? Notre Dame is on the field unless he tae which was where Paris was created. It's the very origin of Paris. Need sits there as not only a beautiful historical monument to museum but it sits there as the absolute essence of Paris So for French Catholics. It's a place of worship but for the rest of the French nation. It's really the origin of their capital city.

about how dirty a lot of these protesters and this site is. in service of activists have cleaned up fifty tons of garbage in liberal Los Angeles. all right to not getting a lot of media coverage but this is in the home was areas to now they started this in west Baltimore remember that big fight with president trump going after Baltimore the thirteen is the broken down on all that stuff this is the group that started there apparently they're doing these clean up efforts around the city without the help of the city on Monday at two hundred volunteers picked up fifty tons of trash in nine

mention of this for your generation. and you were told this the end is near you only have twelve years you heard the one girl say eighteen months and it's gonna be redeemable. it would drive me nuts and they keep on piling along with this stuff. as if this is going to have a good outcome. but I told you the columnist who wrote. yeah I'm not as worried about the end of the planet and all these things they talk about as I am about these kids in the park going kids in these others that have been if they continue on into adulthood like this you can just imagine what this is going to be like. they believe they're right they want anything done they don't care what it is they don't care that we're a Republic not a democracy don't I don't care that it's not rob rule they don't care there's a debate about all this stuff going on they don't care about any of this they just keep on saying their houses on fire and that's it. get out of the way we're not taking any prisoners put down that lamp chopper that pork chop or whatever stop eating meat stop driving. and we're coming into deal with all this so it's an unbelievable concept to put it mildly and look some people run kind on Twitter they're wrong to go after the sixteen year old girl in this manner no need to pile on but I like what some of the people responded to this McFarland woman. stop hiding behind her she's the victim it's like a hostage video stop using her as a human shield. you mean you're using her as a prop angle discard or immediately upon outliving our usefulness that's the one that you're accusing us of cyber bullying and some people are going wild some people are saying this reminds me of **** youth and all you know no need to do that don't beat up on the kids still okay only sixteen whatever the issues are however she sees it. you can be the adults you can push back on this you remember Dianne Feinstein there is a famous video the sunrise if you ever see that name the some rights movement there the group begging is on nationwide it brought in these kids they're gathering at her and she told them on the adult in the room I've listened to you I differ I was elected to office I'm going to do what's right I'm not gonna you know getting to anything more with you that's it. that's the way to deal with it push back as the adult. you know I'm trying to think of which parent who would be the parents from all the sit coms that we've seen that we know how to deal with this person is saying wild stuff and just attacking this girl that's not right there's trouble here with her in a background god only knows what's been inflicting here as far as the indoctrination the what she's been taught what she thinks she's been taught she comes across the Atlantic in a sailboat she speaks to a hundred members of the UN General Assembly I get all that right trump is coming into the room she's eyeballing and there's all kinds immediate tonight looks like she scowling at him he's the one causing all this. so it's hard. but she's a kid. so challenge what she's saying without getting into it and really go after the adults they're the ones that have a lot to answer for here. this will fade with her she apparently even think set a sees green new deal doesn't go far enough I just imagine that. just imagine while going after her she doesn't go far enough. that is pretty stunning stuff all right we have a great guest coming up here on James show we have emini S. always who is the author of the great society into history this is the woman who is the Primera person when it comes to talking about the big movements in America the economics of it and all that stuff and her brand new book. looks at elle beach I never thought LBJ gets the discredit gets the negative of what he inflicted yeah FDR started the new deal and all that okay. but Lyndon Baines Johnson created these programs that have been with us for the last well fifty four fifty five fifty six years just think about that what he's unleashed on America. what is the verdict on the so called great society still with us today it's so permeates all the big cities and all the rest of it. it is still just. incredible I think the damage that's been inflicted on everyone so will break that down with her a little bit later in the show is a big story out tonight NBC news or Wall Street journal poll what's the number one of the top policy arguments Democrats are making that Americans overwhelmingly reject might surprise you I I don't know why this gets the juices going.

I. their books and knowledge are passed down from generation generation in only the orders I personally there's very limited information I have on the year texts secret society but there are you know to me what's interesting is that all of the war about the different like you know kind of heard the so called they all kind of spring up from freemasonry because rating the lords of Adam Kendall a scaffold of law place where you can hang your hat or build your own infrastructure or your own scallops and of a society from but you know as far as the you know promising riches and all these other things now the acting that goes back to the old old alchemical saying of you know it's real which is you know chancery fifty ton Terry our tele right condo a baby a closer look PM which is present the interior parts of the earth and through wrecked rectification also find a stone so it's about you know anything that you want to achieve in life really it's about going deep within the self through whatever methods that are comparable to you that could be meditation that could be reflection that could be ceremonial ritual of that could be reading philosophy but as far as the the the books go not specifically the I'm not very familiar with it but I think that all of them kind of translate and try to convey the same across which is that you know it's about growing up in the cell to find the truth because you know walls here spending on a rock that's moving thousands of miles per hour on in any of those black around a nuclear bomb think about that and when you go with consulting you you don't have fear of going with the doctors that's where you find the true light of the self yeah I I would say that they have exhausted but the question I have to and and Joseph maybe your lab right on this you know the Illuminati has long since been dead you know nearly you know well two hundred years or so it's been gone and yet today we still hear about the Illuminati and every once in awhile I see on my Facebook page Hey here's a phone number to call you what rich is material wealth and what have you I mean what is going on with this I mean there are many Illuminati websites out there there are people claiming that there with the Illuminati I mean how is it that something like this is continuing after it's long been dead for two hundred years yes Sir it's like really like you get the contemporary conspiracy theory of Michael's books were written by John Robison and Augustine bar well yeah they will have their own agendas not publish the seventeen ninety eight a collie store for awhile then he got the protocols of the elders of Zion on in like nineteen hundred not nesta Webster stuff then the John birch society comes in and so basically what it is the woman out here the first group to have their whole ritual system it completely expose from top to bottom in the only books we had an English on the subject we're conspiracy box in the conspiracy people like them like their history books but they're not and so what you know every couple generations someone add some new narrative tickets are girls from like Illuminati wanted over so the church in this day and then like in the modern iteration Illuminati or the centers of communism and global governance it's just kind of like it's like a big onion right except for works the other way around so the Corbetts actually the group was that people just keep putting layers on top of it and using it for commercial purpose so what we're really looking as an exercise in viral marketing probably yeah I would say so I would say that there's a lot to do with that I just you know I I I tell people all the time in in a lot of things it will gets me is when I hear somebody say I was once a luminosity you know there there's some sort of conspiracy researcher that says I was once Illuminati if they say I was once Illuminati what are they saying Johnny I mean if there's no Illuminati group what are they saying they're saying I was once Illuminati I mean to me it's a very kind of thing the thing that I would want the luminaire or light and that the kind of a negative statement what's this yeah saying that your your wireless enlightened our limit you're not anymore I do think that me sometimes like for example I had a researcher on the show and she's going on and on and on and she says and by the way this stuff was pretty much put together by the Illuminati and I said oh okay with the Illuminati what do you mean in and she said well you know obviously this is some stuff coming right down from the hierarchy of the Illuminati and I said well you know the Illuminati doesn't exist anymore so they exist they exist and so you know I I begin to wonder about that old saying you know the bid good biggest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist I mean is that something the limit on he's doing not at all again so when you look at the origin the or fuel Menotti work it was about you know making the world a better place through and light Minera thinking and and philosophy and yeah that's not a bad thing though anybody that says anything negative or to the contrary of that that that you want to explore the idea of aspect of the knowledge in metaphysics three without blind to the truth and I I would I would I I I I think that Joe would agree with that tell me what do you what do you say about that and you know like I said I run into people all the time say or you see them in their in their bios when it when you want to interview him on conspiracy shows they say I was once a member of the Illuminati or I know something about the Illuminati I was involved in their rituals and what have you so are the liars would you say are they part of some group that they think because the Illuminati I don't know first things first are they trying to sell a product well I gotta get a funny answer when you're asking generally like we were going to move ahead with you meddling kids national big dog that clean these rings are dead Scooby doo level we only thing yourself okay well you know if you know anything about the history of the secret societies you know there are darker I I would say they're darker orders that probably mainstream masonry knows nothing about and they're practicing the rituals and are doing so it I mean you know you go back to people like I don't know Jack Parsons for example what he was doing rituals that Alistair Croly didn't approve of and and you know you get other groups are doing it and they don't say much in but they go around in a post things on the internet like all and by the way I got all these rituals in my life all the women I want all the drink I can get everything I need all you gotta do is just call this number you have all the cool things I have to it's like the Nigerian you know email that you get worse is all by the way if you do this and you give me your bank card I can get all this money out for you will be happy to say it's the same things I have to go in I have to the race or otherwise that take away from my Facebook page these people beckoning or lease begging for calls release emails about the Illuminati eight.

"Five years the center free nuclear plant is shutting down for good thanks for joining but what's happened to the three and a half million pounds of nuclear waste still sitting on that site a site that within a fifty mile radius millions of people live utility officials have been transferring all that waste from its wet pools in the canisters to put into dry storage but then something happened almost a year ago the put a stop to that a fifty ton canister of radioactive nuclear waste got dangerously wedged inside a storage cavity and was left suspended an unsupported for up to an hour well this week after getting the thumbs up from federal officials Edison announced it will restart transfer operations of all that waste in here to bring us up to speed on the story and to talk about the future of nuclear waste removal and nuclear power in general is Greg asco he was chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from two thousand nine to twenty twelve Greg thanks for being with us well it's a pleasure to be with you you bet we we talk about nuclear waste what exactly are we talking about I mean what what's inside these heavy canister as of spent I guess we called spent fuel right yes of the spent fuel itself is kind of like a pencil fin rot of of what used to be primarily uranium and is now a mixture of lots of other different kinds of materials most of which at this point a radioactive really it's pretty dangerous stuff what's inside these canisters yeah the the material that's in there would give you enough radiation to cause you to die I if it weren't shield it and so it needs to be behind some type of material water does a good job of shielding the radiation concrete very thick metals can do that as well so it did need to be protected because it is material that's very very hazardous as I mentioned reports are that there's about three and a half million pounds of that waste it Centeno free where the keeping all that stuff well right now there's a good there's a combination of places there's something called a spent fuel pool which is basically a a big giant pool of water where this fuel goes to after it's been in the reactor and of course the reactors are shut down so all that fuel has been moved into this pool in from the pool it then goes into what's called dry cask storage which is basically a way to store this fuel that is not in water that's in some type of of concrete bunker essentially and the ones at seven OO for you right now is a newer type of system that takes this fuel and puts it into a kind of a concrete bunker that's underground so it what what went wrong with the process a year ago weld all of this involves very heavy materials you have these shielding containers that as I said help partially shield the radiation is we have to lift this material with cranes or other other devices that can lift very heavy objects and when they were taking one of these canisters and lifting it up to put it into the hole in the ground where it would go it got it got jammed in cobwebs to little bit and that prevented from going directly in the ground the way it was supposed to and that's not something you want to see we we've heard all about nuclear fuel spent fuel being moved about the country by train or by truck or you know whatever means possible what about this stuff is it gonna stay at Santa no free they gonna move it somewhere else well right now there is no place to move it and that I think is one of the biggest challenges that the community is facing and and sent over is the system that's there for this fuel is not really designed to store it permanently it's really only designed it stored for a couple of decades and then it could be reevaluated in maybe last a little bit longer but it's really not a system that's a bear to store it for hundreds of years for thousands or even the close to a million years that it needs to be isolated from the environment so it it's really kind of a very confusing situation where you've got this fuel that needs to be stored for almost a million years and we're putting in a place where it's really and designed to be stored for a couple of decades I'm gonna play captain obvious here and say we live in a seismic zone here on the west coast of the United States of America and something could happen there could be in our we had a couple of earthquakes a couple weeks ago right here big ones in southern California what happens if something had it is close to to the plant to this de commissioned or future decommission plant and all that spent fuel is there or there's a tsunami a lot Fukushima in in Japan you think the two biggest worries you have with this material one is kind of a long terms slow release of radiation and and that what happened through corrosion as the the canisters that are designed to hold the fuel start to corrode in the fuel itself starts to corrode in in that leaches down into the ground water in and around the site and potentially then into the ocean do you have that potential which could come certainly if you had the site inundated by a tsunami you had some type of earthquake in that could change where the water table is and and move the water levels higher these canisters could fail in without you you could get a a more significant release of radiation the most likely concern is really this long term release of radiation into the environment as all of these materials corrode and and really out live what what is a as I said a very short expectation for the lifetime of the storage facility let's let's talk about the plan because you say it is shut down I'm in it's in the process of being decommissioned was that means the commission so it did sensually means you you clean it up you take all the buildings you tear down all the buildings you remove all the material and you return the site to the condition that it was in before the plant was ever built and that's a a process that can take a long time partially because a lot of the materials that are in that plant have become essentially radiate radioactive or or mit radiation now as a result of being in this radioactive environment for so long you were in Washington and the Obama administration of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission when when this incident will the when the steam generators and and the failures of those began in in twenty twelve and then and then of course the decision ultimately to to shut it down for good what was going through your mind and all that was happening I mean you had sort of a gosh you you've had a an inside view of what was going on and and you know we're you like a whole boy this is really bad well it it really was a very it was a bad situation this was really a failure on so many so many parts of the industry and unfortunately I think in that the agency as well because what happened there was they put in a new steam generator that steam generator was not well designed in the steam generator is important because it is what we call of a safety barrier so it is one of those areas in which you've got on the one side you've got radioactive materials and on the other side you've got the clean environment so when that steam generator ruptured and it's basically up a big system of very thin tubes you actually were releasing radiation to the environment and unfortunately what I saw was really a a an effort not focused on trying to under stand what went wrong and why it went wrong what really an effort that was very much focused on trying to get the plant restarted trying to bring power back trying to basically start generating revenue again because that's ultimately what happens when you generate power and the more I saw of that the more I realize that that was just a mistake I mean it essentially what you're saying though is it these companies these utilities is for profit utilities are saying you know what we we we want to generate electricity through the nuclear process it's gonna make us money maybe we're not gonna be quite so you know like to the letter about everything that's going on and maybe we don't know what's going to happen in the future I mean that sounds really risky you know it with this particular situation they had an opportunity with this new design to send it to the NRC to have the NRC review the design and they chose not to do that that turned out to be something of course that was a mistake both from just an operational perspective but also alternately from really a regulatory perspective they really should have sent the design to to the inner city of the NRC really should have reviewed the design and perhaps in our C. would have identified the the problems with it and before they installed it in the incident never would have happened but that would have slowed down the process it would have cost money and it would have potentially found that the design was not acceptable so they chose not to do that and I think that was a mistake certainly from a safety perspective and at the end of the day it turned out to be a mistake from an operational perspective because a wound up destroying the plant I mean what is a talisman about operating this plant safely in the future is nuclear power still an option do you think going forward is a clean energy source quote unquote clean yeah and I mean nuclear is really not an option in this country anymore we have a dog and a hundred plants right now ninety eight plants operating most of those plants are are getting close to the end of of their operational life for the probably see that in the next fifteen to twenty years and many of them are are simply too expensive they are more expensive to operate the new sources of of clean energy like wind solar hydro so the future of nuclear in this country is really one of a declining industry a contracting industry over time and as a former safety regulator of course that in my mind races a lot of concerns because as the industry contracts as the price pressures get even stronger and greater the chance of having incidents becomes even more significant nuclear energy may not be generating electricity but certainly all that spent fuel is still there and will be there for decades millennia Greg Gaskill who is chairman of the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission also author of the book confessions.

The boyfriend says he went to police when the woman also said, she wanted his daughter killed the estranged husband. Isaiah Carvalho says he found out about the plot when the FBI asked him to stage. His death had me sit in my car. They put glass on the floor and all over me and had me hunch over into the passenger seat.

"But I didn't know the depth of fashion pollution. I didn't know it was the second most polluting industry in our world and the layers of certain oil second to oil and then the layers of of the pollution. So at its first of all who makes your clothes, right? So what kind of work environments are these humans in that make our clothes, and what kind of dyes are used to die are different clothing, the chemicals that first of all these humans have to touch and breathe so becomes a public health thing, and then all these colors running into our oceans, and then the factories that take to produce. This the cotton that needs to be grown. So that's land pesticides water. And then you pack it all up in its individual plastic than you ship it to the store, and then we buy it, dude. I was one of the ones that was like five t shirts for hundred. Oh, yeah. Oh, it's one of those people. So that when I met Christina dean and saw what she was doing with re dress and and studied more I was shocked. My was almost. Disgusted at myself that I will. I just didn't know right. I was like. Wow. Now, you know start walking your talk if you're gonna become passionate about this. You've got to also walk the talk so upcycle for me or repurpose is a circular loop. For I do buy a few things new like underwear. That makes a little bit sense swore me that clear in there have probably been in the past two years three to five new items like brand new off the shelf, but apart from that it's been a conscious effort to buy up cycled, repurpose fashion. So when I do travel, I am one of those travelers that will look for up cycled repurpose fashion stores and do the fun thing of hunt. I still get my little kick from Mike Lu. I'm buying something new. And it's amazing that some something someone has worn. I get a buzz like this sweater. If you see it in the video this is from re dresses pop up store, and it's a very well known Italian fashion label, cold Massoni, and I saw this. I've always wanted to earn a misogyny a could never Ford one and be when I saw. This as like what one hundred and fifty dollars Hong Kong for a sweater that probably would have cost I know two to three grand. Well, you I end, and then this is my style. Like, I don't think I'll ever out I think I'll wear this when I'm a grandma. Probably think it looks like a grandma's carp knows. So it's about the circular loop. Okay. So repurpose upcycle is don't try your best not to buy anything new and take care of it as well. So you don't necessarily have to buy a lot of things. It's also the care in what you already have. So you're not just mistreating your clothes. You know, there's there's a respect for everything that you own not because it's replaceable because in a world the world we live in you can always buy something to replace it. But actually pay respect for that object that was made and that you own and wash it with care folded with care, you know, like there's a little hole so it already so there's a whole for me a holistic concept to even an article of clothing, then I'm not always this deep, but we're having this conversation, but that's really how I'm trying to im- by. That's what I'm trying to imbibe in my life. Well, it's a major polluter in landfills. Like, I was shocked her one hundred fifty thousand tonnes a day. Oh my gosh. I think it's one hundred and fifty tonnes a day just in Hong Kong, which is astounding. And if it's just a matter of a no H M dozen Zara does it which are major clothing manufacturers. But they've got these boxes now where you can just drop close off no questions asked. I think it's and they'll recycle it and use it for new material. That's great. And I love the idea of, you know, going to a store it's not just about like in the US. We have goodwill which would typically. Last Salvation Army. I've found some good pieces. There's some there's some cool stuff to be found. But it sounds like maybe what redress does is. Maybe this is what up cycling means if I understand correctly is is finding or sorting through some of the items in bringing up more of the high end. Right. At basically, rescue them, for example, redresses business model, which I understand which you know, the depth that I understand it's it's repurposing clothes that would have otherwise gone into the landfill or be burned. So they have tons and tons of clothes that are still on trend trendy enough to be worn now and giving them a whole new life and the work that they do is phenomenal. And there's more and more pop ups like this. I I had my own little stand a few weeks ago with I cleared my wardrobe and was just there with the community. Just a little pop up in Shamlan here. In Hong Kong. There's another one on the second of March called hand-me-down collective that girlfriends doing so it's because it's trendy. It's like we haven't even touched on plant based eating and all this stuff. Because of these trends necess- necessary trends, it's becoming the movement is growing into. To business models or even grassroots concept. Just like, let's have like the old lemonade stand on on the sidewalk, you know. Now, let's have a racket clothes, and there's a place I walked past. And it's not clothing it's books, and it's very rare. I think it's only when I've seen they literally just have a bookshelf help yourself for free. Really? Yeah. Wow. In Hong Kong in that's cool. Because I I see where I come from New Zealand. There's sometimes even just like help yourself to Apple's if there's or charter or books, but they don't call it. Just like goodwill like goodwill. We need that. It's so cool. And how did you feel when you give and how how good do you feel when you when you take knowing the intention is like this is just for you. Yeah. That's nice. So we should kind of do that with close as well. If if it's excess but redress the clothes that they sell it just goes back to different funding. So. Business model? It is. It's great. I think that that's probably going to be attractive to somebody. Maybe that's new that's used to sort of shopping at the bigger Gucci's or whatever. Yeah. You can find all the stuff he can find some cheese. Sounds like they've kind of fun too. Yes. This is a question for you. This is a question for you. I asked the same question of green queens Nali. Maybe nine new to the game. I'm I started out plant based five years ago. It's still the best thing you can do to reduce your carbon footprint proud of that. I'm trying to inspire people in my own way to to try. That's my whole thing. Just trying to things I'm I'm volving now into looking at the other parts of Mileit of my family's life and trying to do better with reducing plastic in those sorts of things. So I'm

"Here in Hong Kong. No sorry globally. Three fourths of our clothing ends up in landfills K crazy here in Hong Kong one hundred and fifty tons of clothing is incinerated or put in a landfill daily hundred fifty tonnes that's a lot. So Edwin he's with Hong Kong Rita. He's doing all kinds of really cool stuff with with his projects. And in his lab if you will. And so one of them was there taking clothes recycled close, they're breaking them down and getting all the different five or so, that's I guess the hard thing is if it's a piece of clothing, that's like cotton and polyester they actually have to separate those they separated out and just make really cool yarn that people can use that's pretty swim. They along with the H M foundation and the Nova tax which is Nova Texas. The is Hong Kong and Asia's probably biggest yarn company so all three of. The and then Hong Kong Rita is supported by the Hong Kong government. So it's the Hong Kong research institute of technology textiles and apparel. So their job is to kind of advance the cause of innovate with textiles, which has Edwin Edwin their leader in spokesperson, and then you've got the H M foundation who has made it their mission now to really address the problems of the fast fashion supply chain. This is agent him the big yes, h m the bake. So if you listen to the past Hannah, Holland was there. She's the head of sustainability for H M in Hong Kong in greater China. Super fantastic lady. I mean, all that was a really all star panel. As to be honest. They all are that one of the reasons I think you you asked me why did I do this podcast? It's just another thing I have to do. And and I have a lot of my plate. So why and it's because when I realized that the zero waste concept an topic had become so attractive unpopular. I realize, you know, everyone in their on coal was saying okay here here you need to use a metal strong set of a plastics raw. And that's great. That's a really important part of the conversation too. But I realized that there wasn't enough go of going deeper. So the podcast to me serves to have a conversation with three experts the and who are really leading in their fields on the topic. And I try to get different points of view. And we go deep we're not just saying, hey, use a metal strong run your explaining. You know, what is the first episode was you know, what is this plastic problem? Why do we have a plastic problem in the ocean? You know, the second episode was how does this recycling Hong Kong works, and that was really interesting because we had an NGO fellow. We had a a social enterprise that that recycles, right? And then we had. A government. Representative. Well, the district councillor. So he's elected for his for his for his district. And you know, it's amazing. How deep you can go with people who really are experts. Yeah. So that's the point of the podcast. It's to really go one. I love audio. And I was inspired by my co host, Regina Largo. Who does the hashtag impact boss cap podcast, when she's the one who really made me believe that, you know, Hong Kong could have podcast and people were interested because I've been listening to podcasts before from the US from the UK. But I didn't know that I didn't know that there'd be an audience here. But when when she inspired me, I thought, okay, let's go deeper and instead of doing this like zero waste digging. With with words, let's try audio and it works really well. And it's it's a really, you know, there's an organic feel to the to the dialogue. Obviously, there's some preparation, but we also allow the conversation to go where it will go. So a lot of great stuff has come out of that. And. Then episode four was about food waste. Yeah. That was really interesting as well. And then finally episode five we were doing fashion ways textile waste, and really what what one of the main topics during that episode was about Hong Kong's. First recycled yarn mill which has just opened in. That's what they were all talking about those, and it's really interesting to have against we had three different stakeholders. We had Edwin who's from the innovation side with with there's some government backing behind what he does. You know, Hong Kong Rita is sort of somewhat sponsored by the government. And then you've got Hanna who's working for the biggest fast fashion company in the world. And then you had Sarah garner who was a who's the founder of retail. So she is an example of an entrepreneur who is, you know, innovating in the way, she's doing business. So she runs this platform where you can resell your luxury kids clothing. Wasting it. Right. And she there's a whole story on how she doesn't. She has a really great job. I think she's created a huge market for herself. But again, those are three different ways to solve the problem. Right this. And that's what's really important to me. For each episode is to show that you need different stakeholders to solve a problem. Yeah. It was really interesting, and I appreciated the content that each one of those guests provided and I learned a ton. And I think it was an hour. Maybe just a little bit more. But to your point like this audio long form that sort of popular right now, it it gives maybe your reader won't read more than eight hundred words, necessarily, but they'll go listen to long form because they can listen to the show while they're doing the dishes or long or whatever. So I think it's great that you have that as an additional option for people to go deep rights only grand right now, I'm doing the series on euro as but I think I will explore other. Other other topics. It lends very well to profiling interesting people audio does. But it's it's super important for every every episode to really see how different people are tackling a problem and to show the collaborative nature of our global fight against climate change, and environmental destruction all of it. We can't do it alone. No, no. We need governments. We need private industry. We need NGOs. We just need people to to be inspired really just generally be inspired, exactly. Which is why for the food waste article. I had the writer the food writer. Ginny slang Hayes who is really passionate about food ways. And she's you know, if you look up food waste and Hong Kong, she's written so many of the articles and she's brought it to people's attention. Because at the end of the day. It's great. If people are doing stuff in their labs or in their charity offices. But we the public need to know about it. Yes. So she fulfills an important role, you know, along with we had daisy from from Hong Kong Baptist university whose basically Hong Kong's foremost food waste expert. She's just got awarded a Fulbright scholarship and was just in Massachusetts for a year doing research on a food waste platform solution. Oh, that's awesome. Oh, go listen to all of the episodes a couple of things that I took away from from this, the fashion waste one was obviously we are putting way too many clothes into landfills. And you know, the solution with retitled is great because how much of that has kids it because they're growing so dang fast. Yeah. They don't last long tear through him. Whatever makes me crazy all the kids staff. One of the other things that Edwin at Hong Kong Rita was working on that. I thought was just amazing. Remember how he was talking about how they're creating this polyester out of food waste. That's so cool. So food waste is a huge problem. It's like tackling two birds with one stone. We're handling this issue with food waste and making new clothes from from the importance of having multi multiple stakeholders in this question, and and the collaboration operatives because it's all linked. So this is polyester that's not plastic based this is polyester from. I think he was saying that they actually. Break it down, and and it's amino acids and sugars, and they feed it and grow it. And and it's totally plastic free, which is really cool to it's nice to recycle plastic and a new clothes. But it's also nice to tonight. If you saw, but we just did a profile nece a wonderful Indian start up called him ally. And they're making coconut leather all in leather made from the waste of producing coconuts. Yes. Like, those shoes are really cool, isn't it? So and then you've got the wonderful Spanish lady who created Pena tax where she makes pineapple leather from pine up away from the pineapple leaves? Let's incredible. Yeah. In the Philippines. So, you know. There are other solutions out there, and it usually nature. We're actually at a spot now where it's not, you know, ho- home. This is cool stuff. Like, it's a cool company. Yeah. Twenty twenty four they said that all their shoes and apparel. We're going to be made out of recycled materials. Wow. That's that's I mean, how many they've shown a million pairs of those shoes with the made from the plastic bottles. Oh, yes. That's right. The whole upper is plastic. They're putting it on their boosts platform. Let me their stuff going on. There are solutions we have to buy into them. I mean this week was an exceptionally exciting week. I don't know if you saw my editor's letter in our newsletter yesterday. But basically, so obviously Davos has been going on the World Economic Forum Davos, and a huge announcement was made that about the zero as movement. So this this this company source social enterprise called the loop. While actually they're they're original companies called Tara cycle. But they created this loop platform, and if you saw this so they joined up with major food companies like Unilever, Pepsi. I mean, sorry Coca Cola Procter and gamble. Nestle. All the big food all the FM CG companies. Right. And they convinced them to get involved in this circular packaging economy. So now instead of getting your

"It is supposed that his final resting place is near the wrecks of two British ships. The Elizabeth and the delight which scuttled in portabella, ping. Yeah. Yeah. He was planning on this in advance. He said a die when I die sink, the ships sink me. To bury me in a coffin in the dark depths of the ocean. Because I do not want those Spaniards to get their hands on me. He was also buried in full armor for his request. Because he he really did like his his plan was that if these ships were purposely scuttled if he were buried at sea in a lead lined coffin to keep his remains from somehow rising, right as they decay in separate that he would be able to prevent the Spanish from finding and desecrating his remains. And that was his genuine fear. Like have you ever? Anyone listening? Have you ever been at a point in your life? Where you think there are people who are interested enough in your death that they would desecrate your body. I don't know that seems strange though. Yeah. That's that's out there. But in his case. Yeah. People would definitely want to desecrate his body. Some like those. Those people are living very high stakes lives. Yeah. Definitely. But yeah, I guess the whole point. I mean, I didn't even realize that you could seal I guess, yeah. It's obvious. You could seal of a coffin at that point in time in history. Millette loin coffin actually get that much sealer water isn't gonna seep in where the weight is going to keep him at the bottom. That's that's intense for interest rate. Excuse me, sir. That's right. That man sailed around the world robbing people blind. Can't forget about that fast. Forward. Two thousand eleven is a guy who owns sports teams is also a pirate enthusiasts. He reads a book about Francis, Drake. And he says, you know what? I'm going to find this fleet. And this guy's body this pirate enthusiasts and sports team owners named Pat crochet like Jim crow she and he claimed that he and a team of his treasure hunters had discovered. Two ships off the coast of Panama and. The ships that they found they believed to be the Elizabeth and the delight which you mentioned earlier, no Elizabeth being one hundred ninety five ton ship and delight being fifty ton ship. And as you know, most speculation places Drake's body and coffin somewhere in that area. And they focused on Portobello bay after they hired a guy named Trevor mckenry to pinpoint areas where the ships might have gone down, but very quickly. They ran into a gray area. When it comes to the protection of British shipwrecks when it comes to anything from the age of empire. That's right under the protection of military remains act of nineteen eighty six British naval vessels anywhere in the world are protected from exploitation. However, there's one little caveat here. The the act only covers certain ships which sunk since nineteen fourteen in only British citizens can be prosecuted under it which. Is a bit of a problem that right there? So there's a lot of history and ships that sailed before nineteen fourteen and if it's only British citizens anybody else who's outside coming in. Doesn't have to worry about this. Yeah. So this is where the gets an interesting thing. I'm there's an organization called the joint nautical archeology policy committee sexy name, right? Still my heart, and they have been pressing the United Kingdom's government for years to ratify some international agreements on the protection of what they would call underwater cultural heritage in. So the guy in charge of the joint nautical archeology policy committee has got him Robert York. I don't know if he's a relation to Tom. But he told the BBC if these are Drake's ships, they are presumably, sovereign and immune. So why isn't the British government telling these people to go away? If we ratified the convention. We can make sure they were properly conserved and looked after but Panama did ratify the convention. So it's government might act to protect the wrecks of the ship. And what they mean when these. Say protect the wreck is not not to allow someone to attempt an excavation or to to attempt an analysis of this site..
