Highlights from the First-Ever AJC Virtual Global Forum
"This week thousands of global Jewish advocates were supposed to have been in Berlin for the AJC Global Forum. Unfortunately, the pandemic had other plans, but we weren't just going to cancel our critical conference, so we took the global forum virtual all week. Thousands of people from around the world have been tuning in on AJC DOT ORG to watch high level addresses, intimate conversations and fierce debates over the future of Israel, America in Europe over the course of. Of this episode, we're going to bring you. Parts of those conversations Dr Anwar. Gosh is the United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs this week. He joined the J. C. Virtual. Global Forum for conversation with his friend and our chief policy officer Jason Isaacson in doing so he became the highest level official from an Arab country without relations with Israel to publicly address an American Jewish audience. Let's listen in to some of that conversation now. I want to begin by thanking the distinguish minister, not only for taking the time to share his insights with AJC and our many thousands of guests on this virtual platform, but for the multiple times that he and his colleagues in the leadership of the UAE have met with AJC over the twenty plus years that we have been regularly traveling to his country in pursuit of regional peace and cooperation and understanding or meeting with government officials when they have visited the united. States Dr Guard Gosh. It's very good to see you again. Thank you, Jason. Thank you I'd like. Like to begin by thanking you for boosting need today and I that this would be opportunity for a frank and constructive discussion, which is much needed I want closer to take the opportunity to thank ag see for what has been quite remarkable bridge to the ridge. There has been an octave work that was done to numerous visits to all the countries of ragent, all the countries of the Gulf and I think this sort of visiting and understanding the food of Fiji sees. Look over this city has been quite busted sounded, so thank you very much for that. Thank you very much. His remarks Dr Garg. The has a proud tradition of philanthropy including major charitable dishes here in the United States. How has your country contributed to the global fight against Akron bars pandemic, and what is your assessment of international cooperation in this fight generally closer to home, please talk about public health cooperation across the Middle East. How successful has it been? How can it be improved going forward? What specific role has the UAE played and I note by the way that the has twice in recent weeks, Asakusa and medical aid to the Palestinians by Israel feel free to discuss that as As well. I would actually agree with lock analysts who have said that our national responses have been more important than what I recall regional responses or googlers, every country, really as sort of look into its own and thermal situation, and this raises a lot of issues rarely about global cooperation, regional cooperation on issues such as the CAL now. If you look really adept policy, it's interesting, because in my opinion, we have come with a very I would say organized which nationally which is allowed us to actually and pry and help others and Binat relations originally and. We I think done something very successfully. Separate. Elliptical from the humanity so here for example we have no relationship with is ran, but at the same time we have recognized that this isn't Adia that we need to cooperate together because it is one that edges human beings finally from the religious affiliations at. Let's look at the long term effects of the pandemic on. The long lockdown of the widespread in deep economic disruptions, the effect that they will have on regional stability and security. Not every country in the region has the kind of resources that the UAE. Does you throw in the recent plunge in oil prices on the crisis across the region really is amplified. Are you forecasting a regional power relationship restructuring a potential conflict between states, says spike and out-migration, perhaps from the Gulf states. Where do you see a softer landing after the pandemic? I would say that things will change and things will stay the scene. To suppose that fundamental issues that we have not been able to tackle for forty and fifty and sixty s will suddenly change overnight I think is expecting too much unfortunately, but at the same time I think that we need to try and work at the edges of. So clearly I think we need to avoid rhetoric that leads plus colletion. We need to avoid confrontation because everybody will be affected the dubs. Demographics guns. Economy and so on so

Horizon Zero Dawn might become a trilogy
"The website video games chronicle dot com has recently become home to a lot of interesting rumors. That all seem entirely feasible so far and its latest scoop is related to guerrilla games as Horizon Zero Don series and based on the rumor. The word series may be entirely accurate. Moving forward Andy Robinson reporting for video games chronicle dot com rights multiple sources have told Fiji that Sony Interactive Entertainment has green lit ambitious plans. For the post apocalyptic open world franchise which debuted in two thousand seventeen with the ten million selling zero Don Amsterdam based guerrilla had always desired to deliver a series of Horizon Games and a multi part script was written but the plan was only officially agreed upon after the original games. Strong debut on playstation four so speculation of a sequel potentially a playstation five sequel has been kicking around for a while. But this story adds some potential veracity to everyone's assumptions Robinson continues in their article writing the next installment Horizon Zero dawn to started development soon after the first Games successful. Release sources said. Initially the game was planned for playstation four. However it's thought that development has now entirely shifted focus to Sony's Next Generation Console Horizon Zero Don to is said to be gigantic in scope with a larger game world and more freedom to explore it than its predecessor. People with knowledge of the game also indicated the inclusion of a CO OP feature although. It's not clear. If this is delivered via the main story or a separate mode at one point guerrilla was planning to release a STANDALONE CO OP game preview with progress carrying over to the later full version of zero don. To One person involved told Fiji however it's not clear. These plans are still in place horizon. Zero Don was an interesting release. Guerrilla Games was a prolific talented developer. But after its first release. Shell Shock Nam. Sixty seven and two thousand four. It pretty much became a kill zone exclusive developer and released five kill zone games. Kill Zone is fine. They're not bad games at all. They're just kind of forgettable while being technically very impressive horizons. Zero Don represented a huge departure for the studio going from linear first person shooters in an established universe to a totally original open world. Third Person Action game and it was great. It was a big bat that paid off in a big way. I definitely want sequels. But the first game did end in a pretty conclusive way. The larger mystery about how the present time line of the game lined up with the past was solved. There is still lots to explore in the present time line of that world but I think the more interesting narrative stuff was everything that happened in the past so hopefully guerrilla can take the story in an interesting direction. If a sequel is in fact in the works which I think is a pretty safe assumption. I have confidence in them. And I am eager to see what's next and I'm just generally excited to see what guerrilla can do on a police station.

"Let's start with you. Who's your MVP? Or this one. Sarah in a blowout. She decimated the poker alliance. Got Jeremy to play his thing made him look bad in front of the jury. Got a person voted out from his alliance and flushed out NEIDL. I think Sarah owned the episode last night. And of course we gotta give another. Mvp Bow to Fiji Airways. Yeah LE- are you giving? Mvp TO JEFF probst. Yeah I I didn't have a clear-cut. Mvp from this episode. Although I will say for two weeks in a row now denise has ended pretty strongly without really doing anything. She got protected from being from being voted out when she was just sitting there doing minding our business. So that's pretty good for her So yeah I I didn't. I didn't feel anyone really sort of stood out. You know in this one for me to give so I'm just going to go with Jeff because he could win okay task. What about you denise also protected when big bird slash Quentin Tarantino slash giant I'M GONNA go with another giant. I'm GONNA GO Tyson. I know it sounds stupid. But he played it smart when his family got their Bergen. His daughter came up the burgers are coming are coming and he saw that she was big guide and didn't know what was going on so he's played it safe with her didn't jump on her smart move yes. He's been eliminated again. But as my friend Kelly Clarkson says what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. So we'll either comeback for a third time and I don't think they're gonNa vote him out again. They would be so stupid if they don't if he comes back. They need to get rid of him as soon as they can't because he will win. The game yes easily. I would argue that anybody would win. You think so I think so. Yeah because the jury is all edge of extinction people. Yeah yeah well I think some way some somehow Tyson is going to get this edge of extinction somehow eliminated from the game. I don't know how but I'm giving him. Mvp because it gets back to third time and doesn't think there will be a banishment of edge of extinction. So that's why he's my. Mvp you can lock that into acids. It's gone says all it is the road. Tyson wins this game and they're like oh we've got we've now had someone come back and win this twice. We gotta get rid of an. Mvp runner up to Jeremy for reading the room and walking out with his piece out advantage but I'm actually going to give it to Tony. He won his first immunity challenge individual amusement immunity. Challenge found very surprising. We all did And the thing I love about survivor is watching. People grow. And sometimes you watch from the very beginning you guys like the Meeker guys like Mike White or Cochran or the the rocket scientist Christian. They be at eight. Sorta come into their own during the game. Will we've seen Tony grow over the course of three times? He's played this game. He's learned patience. He's learned to play it cool. I mean this. This is going to blow up next week. Probably but for now. I'm going to give him the MVP. Because good on him. And I love seeing people grow I have a question. Do you guys think when we were talking about all? These giant family loved ones. I heard rob fish back talk about this. Could there be this thing of the three people that didn't have kids come out? You didn't see like there. Wow they're beautiful big family with all these young ones and I'm talking about Michelle. Who had her sister and nick who just had a fiance I guess or girlfriend. And then sophie sort of the same boat. Should those three kids alliance honestly think about sort of teaming up to help their chances of winning this game like I guess my point is can either those three get to the end with these other people with these big families beautiful families young families at times and like I don't know convince the jury to give them the two million dollars that's a hell of advantage for your people with the kids? I think I think they should think about and that's an interesting point. I mean if you're sitting there if Michelle is sitting there next to Jeremy Who's a firefighter and has four kids and you've when you see those kids kids yeah you've spent the afternoon with them. It's totally different than hearing about this family back home trade. What do you think I mean? That's a good question because yeah you're right. I mean it's an easier pitch for Jeremy to be like. Yeah I've got five kids and I'm a firefighter. You should give me two million dollars. I gotTA support all you gotTa feed a whole bunch of people but you look at it. It's like Sophie sitting in a pretty good place. Maybe she decides to to bow to to join up with Nikki. Michelle who've been voting with her. The past couple of weeks could be an alliance there. I mean people are getting together over playing poker away from survivor. Kids is just as good a Burris it. Yeah I don't know some something to watch those three to you feel like all three of them would look at the other two and go. I could beat them. I think I have a case to be here sitting at the end. Maybe it'd be a little bit more difficult if you're sitting beside a Tyson even a Sarah Kim of course or something like that. Yeah something to keep an eye on so well like we said Tony. Looks like he's GonNa lose it next week and go bonkers. Do you think that's a little fake out here by the editing or is Tony Maybe in threat of being voted out? I'm asking who do you think goes goes to the edge of extinction next week if you had to make a guess. I don't care who answers this. Don't trust any of the editing. I don't think that really does goddess in any direction but I think that without that immunity auto that he had this week I think tiny modest pain in trouble anyway so I think that He could be a target next week. So you know It's so hot though it so how to get confused between each episode they al. Here's the question. Here's the question. Will this alliances voting block that? We've seen the five of them. Tony Benn Nick and then Sophie and Sarah next week we sit down to record this. Are we still talking about that? Sort of what appears to them be now a power alliance and that there are still good. Will one of the other four be going home next week? I guess it depends. What in the world is in that bag? What you've gotten that bag jeff. Probst is telling us that survivor. Capitalism is going to be huge and when that bag shows up at tends to be somebody sent you something from edge of extinction. Do you want to buy it for your fire tokens? So I don't know I mean. Tony seems like he is always in danger of being voted out doesn't have something around his neck but maybe they're sending them something around his neck. I mean Nick was talking last week about wanting to back stab somebody. I think the vote wasn't necessarily backstab last night so I don't know maybe him and Michelle as their twosome are able to flip to the other side and say. Let's see you later Tony. Let's see you later. Sarah S-o-f-i has the idol. So perhaps she's a little bit safe but the game's afoot again. I think nick should get a little bit of credit he was potentially a runner up for me for MVP not because he did anything exceptional this episode but last week he got some votes. If I'M NOT MISTAKEN. He was on the outskirts and easily. Been One of the Hyenas. Tony said but he stepped up and tribal council last week and said I wanNA play the game. I want to be in an alliance and all of a sudden he isn't it alliance and Novotes were him and he's he's on a team at least and now he's got some outlook at the very least. I am worried about my a survivor winner. Pick Kim for next week. I yeah because you know. Of course we already saw Sarah and Tony have that big discussion of like Maybe it should be Kim. We Gopher Kim and if she doesn't have anything around her neck. I'm worried for her that they're going to be like she's another big player. Get her out. If that alliance does in fact stick together but maybe she can work her magic in sort of. Would you say that way back in? Jeremy is ahead of Kim in the threat level. Because that's the thing that Tony is certainly ways. Who's the bigger meet? Shield would be Jeremy Overcome despite the fact that Kim wins more challenges. Wow that is yes. That's a great question. I don't know they're neck and neck in both being threats for different reasons. I think I would put Kim a little bit higher than Jeremy. Right now and I think a big part of it is. I like her chances to win a challenge. More than JEREMY'S. Yeah Yup and you know you you you know you have to consider yard found an idol. Is that in the back of their minds. Like damn does she sort of have a a good read on where those ours? Could she find the one she just played? Yeah I guess I'll put him just ahead of Jeremy but does feel like one of those to be in the crosshairs next week. I'd say yeah. Cam is definitely a bigger threat than Jeremy Right now simply because she has Super Tight alliance with Denise which was fully on display when she played her idol for Denise Inexplicably And she's a challenge beast and people seem to like our. Although Jeremy is very well liked guy on in the game but he also seems to be a free agent so I think that Sophie if they don't start targeting Sophie soon then it's she's going to win the game she. She has an idol. Yes so but do they know that. I don't think they know that But so I would I would be targeting her or whoever her number two is which seems to be Sarah so put me down for Sarah. That's exactly what Kim wanted to do right. Yeah that's what Kim was saying. We got to break up those two. They're powerful right now so yeah. It will be interesting next week to see if Kim Jeremy try to sell the each other out right being on the on the On the ropes. Do they just like turn their back completely on each other and be like try to make their case of like why you gotta get rid of the other? One could be something. We'll see maybe denise in that mix too but denise digital probably wisely just like Lilo another week yeah and uh and let them maybe take a shot at Jeremy or can't we'll see all right. Get your questions. In for next week's no buffs episode email. No Dunk that. The ATHLETIC DOT COM. Make sure it's real survivor. In the subject later tonight the final two rounds of MBA Horse Challenge ESPN. We just learned before sitting down to record this one..

"Tribal Council like you know when when they apply. Win Jeremy What's it going with the The Palo but no no parallel Geoffrey. Garin okay right right when he had that and he and Sarah were both like now you told you know you told you this is great and then there was another twist to come afterwards with Sophie. Right Sara Sara. Who Played Her idol right travel council and then we can get to the questions because we get all the whispering. We get all the whispering and I knew I don't know about you guys. But as soon as the whisper started up again I was like okay. Jeremy is going to get the hell out of here because definitely whatever I was told does not happening. So I'm out of here and we can get in a little bit later whether that was a good decision or not for him so we I love we get a shot of the jury trying to figure out. Who's working with WHO I know? It's such a great shot all pointing like okay. Those people are together all those people together so germy says you know I am GonNa go eventually. And that's after we had that little. Hey Jeff standoff between Jeremy and Sarah which was no you hang up. I know you know you hang up I so jerry places advantage. He's out of there so now that that smaller group is sort of screwed and we even get it did seem like in this tribal council that that big alliance that big voting block. The one led by Tony that they were probably going to go for Jeremy. Right because we get them saying well what the hell happens now. One hundred percent and that's why Jerry's move was a good one for him for him in that moment. No doubt Sophie. I mean takes whispering to the next level she literally stands up and goes team huddle. Let's call t meeting behind the torches. Yeah I can't believe that either at Tyson or a Kim. Let's say why didn't they just go over there and refused to let them huddle up without you? Being able to hear. They wouldn't be able to done anything that's true. I couldn't believe that so they they instead splinter off the four of them remaining and are basically left with Kim trying to figure out. Who Do I play an idol on? I've got one in four shot. I don't you know she's trying to figure out she's the poker player. Who do I go with and then Sarah to help their chances even more plays? The steel vote takes. Denisa virtualshield voting. So now it's really if my math is correct. Here it'd be like six votes to three and again Kim's gotta figure out who to help play the idol on. She played herself. Did she play for Tyson does she? Play it for Denise or I guess in theory maybe even like a Michelle or something like that but I thought she completely blew it. I thought Kim Him. One hundred percent blewett considering earlier in the episode. She was sitting down with Tyson. Jeremy and said we got to protect ourselves. We got all stick together and then when it came time to it. She didn't protect her three. She could easily put votes on Tyson. The guy who came back from edge of extinction who wasn't in the crosshairs but once Jeremy Left you had to be thinking perhaps Tyson is going to be going out here. He knew he could possibly be going out here when Jeremy told him about the peace out advantage. But I don't know maybe she was just convinced that since. They're Sarah took denise vote. She was the target nonetheless. Kim For being a poker player got completely plane. I thought Gee I thought she was terrible last night at tribal council. She should have either. You just play that damn thing for yourself one or I'm with you. I don't get playing it for denise after. They stole her vote. That's a classic like they're not going to be going for her really. In my opinion to it's easy I guess for us to say now but yeah. I would've I'm wishing that she should have went herself or Tyson it was. It was odd to me that she was seen to be hell bent to play it for somebody else. Like right from the beginning of the strategizing of that this episode. She's like she's basically telling people. I'M NOT GONNA use it on me. Use It on somebody else. She said that to Denise Yeah maybe that was a part of her poker play though back right like trying to fake them out. They're like no no when they're huddled up. They're like well she's GonNa play for herself so let's not put the votes on him which I guess they didn't but yeah well. This is just trying to swing for the fences and make a big move to impress the jury. Maybe I don't I don't know if it impressed. The jury is just as much as like. Try and keep our alliance together. We're SORTA screwed now like if those fiber tight. They're they're basically running the game but are they. Here's the one part though and a lot of people are confused by this people were like. Why didn't that five-person Huddle up alliance split their votes? Because they had six votes after they stole the nieces. Why didn't they go three? And three case as we saw an idol. Like put three on Kim and three denise or whatever because that's not what happened I guess Michelle actually flipped on what you thought was her alliance and she threw it to a vote to Tyson as well so it was like. He didn't play it all that well either. Because of Kim it properly played the idol on Tyson. It would have been if Michelle hadn't flipped. I should say then. It would have been a sophie going home. She would have had more votes right which is crazy that they didn't decide to school. Cover THEIR ASS and go three three but then again maybe they knew. Michelle was going to be turning their back on them right. And how did Michelle know to flip and was not in? That little huddle whispered to her when she came back or maybe she just If you go back and they didn't show it on the show but on. Cbs Dot Com. They show the video of the vote. And Michelle shot. She's you don't hear her say anything but it's just her slow motion in the biggest shrug you've ever seen like just. I don't know I guess. Tyson is odd. It was a wild but we did have all these advantages played so that that is that is good and it did feel a lot. More like survivor was being played for sure. I thought it was the most fun tribal council I've watched just as far as strategizing goes. Was You know the whispers? Not Fun circumventing. The whisper rule by speaking at volume. That's acceptable away from the council. Not Fun to watch but the simultaneous Jeremy and Sarah Awesome and then yeah I think I think the one I think there was three things played in in the tribal council. Jeremy's Power Yelm the immunity island Sarah the two votes. I think it was one for three. I don't understand why Syrup laid votes when Jeremy. Walkaway seemed like a mistake and then Kim's mistake but so much strategizing within five minutes. I thought it definitely felt like survivor was being played. That was I was fighting the most fun tribal council I've seen so if if we don't like the whispering what should they do like how do you how do you sort of police it. What is Jeff to do or through? Just leave your stool. Maybe I would just say okay. Whatever you know because it doesn't that doesn't really mean anything gives you to student really know exactly what's going to happen because they've all been making so many little side deals and back deals with each other anyway. Who knows what. They are actually whispering to each other. So don't hold on hold on hold on so if their plan was to vote. Jeremy which felt like this guy says by. I'm Outta here. Didn't know that it was going to do that. And they were like well. What do we do now? I hate that. Then they're allowed right there on the spot to literally get up as a group and huddled together like okay now. What should we do? The beauty of survivor is like they came in with the plan. Oh my God this guy's planning advantage can just leave and like we are now. There's like they should be at a disadvantage because they got they got played there because of this advantage. And it's like instead. They're like well okay. Let's just pretend we're back on the beach for a second next plan. You should have that plan already in place. Yeah or Indian place but I hated that. That's when the the chess game is supposed to start right you can't you can't just make have a makeshift war room and discuss you know. I mean although it was jarring to see a physically the line in the sand like it's literally our alliance is going over here. Which is you never get to see tribal council but that was a real almost jump. The shark moment for the whispering at tribal especially especially right after Jeremy plays his advantage. That's where the hits the fan and everybody has has to rely on their wits. And you're playing chess at that point. Sarah has to decide on the spot. If she's going to use her steal the vote and if she is who she using it on and also anyone with an idol in their back pocket has to decide. Am I going to use this idol or myself or at all or who am I going to play it for? It's way more fun to watch that way when the scramble is happening. And it's like this massive game of Of Chicken basically totally. You know how they say. The grown virus may change the way we act in public for the future. Well it should change. The way survivor is played in the future as well self distancing at tribal council six feet apart. There's no whispering to him. You can't move from your seat and I still think you can achieve a decent shot to rose six feet apart. You just can't talk. I don't get it. They're just they're just it's just not allowed number one and number two. I think you should force these people to switch up their seats as well. I would want to sit in the back row so I can take in everything. I can possibly take in but like Sophie. She's a front cedar. She's always in the front row. There's always people in the front row. That's production I think decides that like where they said. If I'm not mistaken I think you're they don't pick their slots so it does. Yeah I guess. Production has in mind. Sometimes they want to split it up like okay. Well this factions over there in this factions over there. I'm with you though tasks like the rule is very simple for me. You just can't leave your seat like you could still in theory over. Sit next to you care. That's fine I don't mind that because then you can play broken telephone if you really got to get that message all the way over there and you don't want to say it aloud. We'll have that whispered all you want to the next person beside you to then maybe moving on to then move we move on but like the getting up and having these files and all that. I actually hate it like a big advantage for the taller people. Then you're right you're right you're right And GETTING BACK TO JEREMY. When all this is happening he absolutely made the right move. I mean as a firefighter. He said Yeah. We're I'm here to help people but as a firefighter. I know when to leave a building when it's about to collapse on me. And that's exactly what he did so good on him totally yeah. The question is now with him doing that. I mean he really turning his back on his alliance there. Can He win this game at all now? That's that's the only thing to me like you're right. He saved himself and it looked like you had to is like I. Just don't know blow up. Did he blow up the long game tonight for him? I'm skeptical. He can win the jury votes now or even his own people's votes. Yeah I thought it was just a brilliant play by Sarah because first of all you she kind of got him to play his piece out before she even made her move then. She made him look bad because he left his alliance then. She took an idol from another alliance member and eliminated another alliance member. So what lions even left from Kim Tyson and Jeremy Right now are they gonna read like okay got to that?.
Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs
"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.
Rumors point to a Resident Evil 4 remake
"A remake of resident evil four is already in production according to rumour I feel like the show has turned into a focused resident evil rumour reporting show in the last episodes. But I'm not really complaining. I like resin evil a whole lot in the last few rumors including this one have all seem to have some veracity to them. I like still emphasizing that. This is a rumor though but according to Andy Robinson reporting for video game chronicles. It looks like a remake of resident evil four is already in production over at Capcom Robinson writes multiple development sources have told Fiji. See that the resident. Evil for remake has now entered full production. An estimated release window in twenty twenty two development is being led by ASAKA based 'em to the new studio founded by former platinum games. Head Tetsuya Manami. Which has been preparing for the project since two thousand eighteen however similar to how twenty twenty resident evil three was directed by company. Read Works Cap. Calms internal teams and other external studios are likely to lend significant development resources? Some other details from Robinson's story. Shinji Mikami the renowned director of the original Resident Evil and evil four has apparently lent the project his blessing after declining the offer to work on the remake himself. This rumor has sparked a discussion on the Internet about remaking resident evil four. A game that many argue does not need to be remade. I played resident evil. Four on switch as recently as last year and it holds up remarkably. Well it was one of those games. I bought on sale for switch mostly just because I wanted a great portable version of the game but after playing the first hour or so. I didn't WANNA stop and ended up seeing the game to its conclusion. It's still plays great. It still looks great. So I understand those decrying a potential remake but I've always approach remakes and re imaginings 's with the reminder that a new version of something does not prevent the original from continuing to exist with that perspective. I would love to see a remake of Resin Evil Four. I love resonable four and if Capcom wants to create a new version of that game with modern visuals. I'm all about that. And if it doesn't hold up to the original resident evil four is still one of the most ported games of all time so it will be remarkably easy to find an play the original version on whatever platform you have. Robinson had a few other interesting small details in their report. The remake is apparently being directed by a resident evil newcomer and the studio creating it m to
"fiji" Discussed on Ghost Town
"Didn't episode island Dr Moreau. I've been thinking a lot about tiger king as you might. Although by the time this airs I think it might be be long. Watched and back in our net flicks shared history. But it reminded me of. I was kind of obsessed with Barnum Bailey. Growing up BARABOO. Wisconsin is a lot of circus happened. So that was really on my radar at that point. Because I've seen ringling brothers named New York City. I believe at Madison Garden. Wow Yeah and circuses. Like they're just not like we all hate them now which we should we should bad. They're abusive whatever. But I think as a kid growing up at a certain time you know maybe like twenty years ago. It was still such a fun exciting thing and before that side show world of circus. We reminds is on that because the greatest showman was very charming. And it just showed you Jackman being real cool guy accepting of everyone not explaining anybody really well as someone who didn't see the greatest showman I agree disagree. Agree Zafran is very charming. Howard is APPS. I only see them. But you know you know. They're they're they're they're under whatever as costumes. I don't know really turn this century. Bullshit is alright for today's fail. I'm so delighted to discuss the Fiji Mermaid which is a staple of sideshow circuitry in the mid eighteen hundreds. What was it where it came from it so bizarre and it's so indicative of people being like I need entertainment. I am thirsty for looking experiencing anything that might seem like exotic might seem bread in a strange way or something that I can't find my own tiny region. I wish I was still like that. I wish we still were like wanted to be voyeurs and look at like freakish things we don't. We're not true or not interested in that the simple times where we just wanted to check out some strange. You know to headed baby pig. I do not have the clouds look inward ally cleansing. Brett's me I'm made of cat hair onto Tino's pizza rolls so we're both doing our work that we were supposed to be doing during this time of quarantine. I'm very happy for us. The Fiji Mermaid started with an American Sea captain named Samuel Barrett EADS. He got completely money struck when he bought what he believed to be. A Mermaid from a couple of Japanese sailors in eighteen twenty two for six thousand dollars which is about fourteen thousand dollars. Now which doesn't seem that much really so take that for what it's worth. It's already crap you know it's not like you're not. It's not like you know like some British Museum. Come on me like at this time. Everyone's really obsessed with endangered species. They were obsessed with antiquity. They wanted artifacts. So this guy a off the truck Japanese sailor sold Bargain Bin Mermaid. He used the money from his ships expense account and took it to London where people surprisingly lost their shit over it. The Fiji Mermaid was displayed in London. Eight to twenty two and was advertised in a publication by J limbered in the mirror which is a big big press for that time and for now twenty years later captain he'd son took possession of the Mermaid and sold it to Moses Kimball of the Boston Museum eighteen forty two and he brought it to New York City and showed it to Mr P. T. Barnum so at this point the Mermaid was circulating in Europe brought to America. People were like really responsive to it there and P. T. Barnum saw it was like okay. This seems fruitful. I'M GONNA take it to a naturalist to examine it for authenticity. The naturalists was like this is bullshit. This is insulting and he's like you know what let's still put out there so I mean the authenticity part is really just a formality. Yeah it's it's very performing if I think to be like. Oh I'm taking it to this expert to make sure that it is what I am saying that it is and they were like. It's not sue don't and he's like okay. Well thank you so much for your time and service so barnum believed that the relic would draw. The public to his museum kimball remained the creature sole owner while Barnum leased it for twelve fifty a week so he would lease this mermaid take every once he was not the original owner but he was sure that he was going to make something out of this barnum generated publicity for the object by having an agent sent anonymous letters to New York newspapers from Montgomery Alabama in Charleston South Carolina contending that Dr j Griffin hadn't an object which he had caught in South America Griffin was actually being impersonated by lyman one of Barnum's associates to keep the one working griffin checked into a Philadelphia Hotel then showed the mermaids the landlord as thanks for his hospitality. The landlord was so intrigued. He begged Griffin to show it to some of his friends. Many of whom were big editors kind of a roundabout way to get press but it happened and it was very successful. Griffin traveled to New York with the Fiji Mermaid displaying it for five days in concert venues before Barnum had convinced Griffin to bring it to the American Museum of Natural History Barnum printed ten thousand pamphlets which described the mermaids in general and how his specimen fit into mermaid science history whatever mermaids were perceived ever whatever bullshit he had written in these beautiful pamphlets so what was the mermaid. Well The Fiji Mermaid was an object composed of the torso and head of a baby. Monkey sewn to the back half of a fish. The original had fish scales with animal hair glued to its body with gigantic human tits onions. Fish chest so it also had like fake. It was a lot of things fish. It was monkey. It was like paper mcshea fake women's anatomical boobs the mouth was wide open with its teeth bared usually the right hand was against its right cheek and the left was tucked under its lower left jaw. The Mermaid was supposedly caught near the Fiji Islands in the South Pacific. That was the history around it after. Barnum got ahold of lots of people had their own cobbled together monkey fish carcasses kind of in competition with it. It's hard to know who had the First Fiji Mermaid specifically because there's a lot of people that say that they made kind of this mermaid type object before the first one was made famous by P.T. Barnum or somehow the original version had not gone to him. It was bought by someone else from Captain Eddie's AIDS exhibits at Ripley's believe it or not Coney Island sideshow by the seashore and Bobby Reynolds. Traveling sideshow all lay claim to having the First Fiji Mermaid. They were tiny ones. That were once with fish. Won't like fish parts that were like little goldfish with fake plastic on them with monkeys ones of total Haberman Shea and modelling putty seal with wallpaper paste and one of them that was made out of like doll parts and fish parts? Whatever could make one people would make them and try to make a buck off of it. Tony James Bond author of the Fiji Murray another essays a natural and unnatural history and Stephen C Levinson author of PT Markham and the Fiji Mermaid inflation calculator because every time so it was back in one thousand nine fourteen Six thousand dollars in nineteen fourteen. Not Eating Twenty. Two is one hundred fifty seven thousand dollars in two thousand twenty. There's no way. Six thousand would only be twice as much in a hunt to invade math in two hundred years six thousand would be only fifty five percent more. Maybe I just forgot to zero or something and my calculations you call yourself a Jew. I'm a bad Jew. I'm the Fiji Mermaid of Jews. Have you seen him nearly splash? Yeah that was like the timing culture and I feel like early. Nineteen eighties was perfect to have Tom. Hanks Fall in love with Daryl Hannah as the Mermaid. Yeah agreed man. I'm still sorry I'm still reeling about my bad math calculations it wasn't a bargain bin knows very expensive. Very Pricey Fun. Cool sideshow thing. I take.

"Got a really interesting story today about shopping in the future right like have you noticed that the shopping experience for you is just different right because we can go online and then like two days later. It's outer doorstep about some. If you're in New York City some deliver that day. I Know Amazon. Prime now thank you say Mr Port like they think coming on over Christie absolutely true and rent the runway which I am wearing right now you can order stuff right to the store and get it that day but our story today about shopping in the future right. What's IT GONNA be because have you seen any of the AI? Stuff Ryan a have or not the sorry the A. R. Stuff augmented reality. I've seen it when I was furniture shopping when I was designing like a hair studio and I needed a chandelier. And what have you? I didn't love. It wasn't perfect right. I have I kind of have vision for that stuff anyway. So that's not right. It's like a never mind. Just like I know they need but I think will really truly help someone who doesn't necessarily have the I in design Who needs to kind of see it in the space? I throw a lot of people like that and I think it's I think it's amazing and I remember the first time ever saw it and it was shopping on guilt and it was just great like I i. It was fun. It helps you make out you pull the trigger on your purchase when you weren't sure on a personal note like how do you feel about these brands knowing everything about us? You know what I think of my kids. I think of my daughter who gets to go into a makeup store maybe for fun with her girlfriends and she liked sets up for email and the now they have everything on her from jump because like and then they're going to pitch in Stuff and she's not going to know I agree with you But one of the things that also kind of scares me is that Is that sometimes? This stuff works right where it's like. I didn't WANNA spend one hundred dollars on this little fashion top that came across but now that I'm thinking about it a really needed and we do know that our phones are listening to us. They actually know that now and they'll pick up on keyword so if I'm like I need a new bikini 'cause we're going to Fiji That will pop up and it's getting scary. 'cause used to just be like. I don't want that. Fidora is not Fedora Bowl But now I feel like especially with certain places re shop a lot. They really they now. They know how to get you and they know how to hit you in the wallet and they know how to hit your at hurts because you know over over the river and through the woods they have to drive sales some. How some way? And if you're not going into the store all the time they still need a way to get you when you're not there. Yeah and hey guess what? Our next guest is going to explain to you how they're also lowering us back into the store. We've got retail strategist Melissa. Gonzales who's GonNa tell us what the future of shopping is really gonna be like that when you think of how malls curated and we were. We were younger man. You went to borrow maybe to get some pizza. You hung out all day That was how you saw your boyfriend or girlfriend because you probably shouldn't have had one but Envision and and and it was a really focused on a retail. You're in first and foremost our security should. But now it's like. How do we create these multi use environment? And you know it's leaning into F. and be a lot more leaning into experiential. They're looking at You know more of the Museum of ice cream kind of activation to be at the property And you're seeing a mix of office even coming into malls now though it's really interesting how it's really becoming these multi nations all to help drive foot traffic. And now I WANNA talk about you know some of the use of a are right because I I noticed it on the Sephora APP where you can actually try on colors. I mean where. How are we going to actually be be buying beauty products in the future? You know the beauty industry is probably the most intuitive used for with pay that in furniture And I think that you're going to see it and it makes a lot of sense because you think about it in that environment and restore you WanNa see on Nail Polish looks on you. You're going to want to see how different Washington pigments are. GonNa look at you and you can't always sit there and and take it off and go through that whole process of it that actually becomes more time consuming and then you also want an opportunity to remember what you try it on so a lot of times in store. They're integrating augmented reality. Not Letting you see what you look in the mirror. It's also taking a snapshot of it and then sending you a follow up email with links to all the items you tried on. She just shot from the email later. And it's a really seamless way for you to not only remember everything tried on and how it looks. You'd have a picture right there but also on the retailer side even while the things they're learning they know that amber tried on all of these things and then they know what you convert it to now they also know what resonated with you and what you like. Follow up a few leader. Wow I mean for some people see that scary and I guess it could be I kind of love it. I mean look. It's scary if it's it's not with purpose and I think that that's a fine line. And that's why retailers and brands have to make such a concerted effort and really understanding. What's best for the customer and making sure that it's serving that purpose because if it creates off moments of like wow you made my life better right now. Then you're going to be more open to that exchange because it's beneficial.
Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker
"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing. A movie has been made about her experience called maiden trip and she wrote a book called one girl one dream. It's pretty amazing. What people can accomplish

Tony Robbins, Russell Brunson and Dean Graziosi: 4 things I learned over 4 days in Fiji
"And this actually comes from Russell Brunson in is all about. Are you resisting making serious bank. Are you resisting and making dollar dollar bills. Are you pushing money away because it just doesn't quote unquote feel rights. I love when Russell stood up. And he shared the story of some of his failed launches and when he looked back those failed launches and companies and products. One thing was a consistent theme. He didn't have nearly enough focus about making money about generating revenue. He didn't look at it as an obligation allegation and guess what his company's ran out of money. His company's ran out of time. His company's ran out of ways to pay wages to pay salaries to pay all of those things ads for amplify etc all because he didn't make it a focal point of focus and just embraced the fact that yes you need to make serious bank to run a successful business and and then if you want to do all those amazing things you WanNa do be philanthropic. Give to your favorite charity. Go travel the world. How about your family members wherever that might be that all becomes possible symbol when you start making serious bank able to run a successful business and so when Russell Move Ford and shared about when you launch click finals completely different mindsets and that mindset was? I need to make serious bank. I need to make product in the service. The starts making money and his cash flow. Positive is creating a net profit for me and my business from day one so that I can put more money into ads into able vacation. I can pay Greek emissions for affiliates. I can sponsor podcast and sponsor conferences. Maybe throw my own conference which he's done many many times now and finally I can live is a hugely successful conferences. Actually had twenty one hundred. Come and Speak Multiple Times that has three thousand. Five hundred attendees. Didn't start that way. He started with three or four one hundred dollars at his first conference but still he was able to invest in that conference and make it happen to get that momentum going and that's really the message that he wanted to share. was you have to be focused on making revenue in your business from day. One it has to be a priority. It can't be something that you shy away from because it just doesn't quote unquote feel rights. If you you want to amplify your business your message make a bigger impact. It's all going to happen much much faster. And in a much more impactful way when your company is generating healthy profits with entrepreneurs on fire. I got to a point where I'd sponsors approach me and some people say John Don't you sponsor is because then everybody's going to get tired of hearing the sponsors. They're gonNA stop listening to your show. And and then that's it up to that and I'm like putting so much effort into this. PODCAST is a daily podcast on pouring my heart. My Soul my blood. My sweat my tears into this podcast literally. Seven days as a week. I've got to make some kind of return on my investment so I can pay my bill so I can continue to grow my business so I can take out facebook ads to grow my business so that I can invest in my infrastructure restructure. I can hire more people I can do all the things with equipment etc.. All those things happens one. I brought sponsors onto entrepreneurs on fire and I was able to amplify the message and and guess what of course. There's a couple people that complained. There's always a couple that complained when you try something new or when you add something to your product your service your podcast. Your Youtube channel rather might be but guess the vast majority they either understood or they didn't say anything because they realized that is going to make a buck that I need to have a business. That is Jerry healthy profits so I can keep producing this great content that this content is not going to produce itself. There's some get up and put in the hard work and that person needs to be generating some kind of return on investments so fire nation. I really hope that this quick tip from Russell. And then my example with entrepreneurs on fire and bringing sponsors onto my show has just really opened your heart your mind your soul all to say you know what whatever it is. And I'm doing my business right now. I need to make sure that I'm putting a strong emphasis on. Generating healthy profits are making series bank. And and that's why our upcoming five day challenge called. Think like an expert has that as one of its three core components the first component is building your confidence. You need to build your confidence you need to be you. Leaders need to step up and say this is my time. Then you need to be able to attract the right customers with that conference that you now have. And then the third thing that we're focusing on today is making serious areas bank because once you have the confidence and the ray customers now. It's time to make serious bank. We're GONNA teach you how to do those three things in that order myself. Kate
Nihaya Jaber a strong lady
"Could you make a noise oysters to be sure. We know you're there. I'm Ken Gordon. I run the refugee voices Scotland podcast. It's a personal project of Maine. We've been running for two years now and if your subscribers listened to for thanks it's really cool that we meet people who've actually listened to it so this is a co production between refugee. The Voice Scotland University of Glasgow UNESCO chair in refugee integration through language and the arts and refugee for the wonderful facilities. Ah Hijab or are you doing nice to meet you you're looking PhD student at the University of Glasgow. You're also an intern for the Palestinian Estonian Arabic online project. Yeah the higher. The one thing that we always do in these podcasts is just ask people. What's on their mind? What's on your mind today? In one hundred years ref we shop the first thing. That's in my mind that I'm happy. It's sunny today unlike yesterday. And the second thing that's in my mind since we're talking about refugees there's a I tell you a little bit of history. Yeah so I'm Palestinian from Gaza and I'm not sure if people know about the whole Palestinian Israeli conflict but it it started like in one thousand nine hundred forty eight and because Israel started their estate created their states. They had to expel people from their villages. When I say people I mean Palestinians who are living there for a long time and as they explode those people those people started to move to other areas and then eventually they became refugees? So Amirah Fiji Ah in one of the most populated refugee camps in Gaza. My parents are refugees. Migrant parents are piggies so it's like like three generation of refugees and you can tell like how many years we've been refugees and They you were Help those refugees get you know the main basics for the lives I with my grandparents and they give them tens and then people people started to build their own houses. Because sometimes when I say that a refugee and I live in a refugee camp I people will be like all and then I would. I don't understand why they they say that because in my mind it's not a big deal because a normalized and internalize allies in me. But then I started to get to know that even a refugee. It has like Norman normalize idea in people's mind that just that person and who lives in a tent. Well it's true for you know other crisis but for Palestinians. Just we tried to you know to move on on and I don't live in a tent. I live in house to floor house. So yeah this is me as a refugee third-generation third generation refugee. So what I want to talk about as well I said that everything internalized in me and then because I loved my I hope my whole life there. My parents live their whole life there so I didn't see anything different. That would make me compare between what I live. And then how other people live so I got a scholarship to get my masters in the USA and then spend their two years and then it was really really like the first two years of my life. So when when I when I started to have I was full of energy. Discover the World Meet New People and all these things and it's worked and then by the end of the second year I had like my own community. You know my friends and then I had to leave back to Gaza so I knew it is going to be hard because I will not see my friends But it turned out. It's not only because I will not see. My friends is because I will have something to compare to like. What's going on in Gaza and what what happened to like all these experiences I had in the USA so going back to Gaza? There's no no insecurity. There is no stability. There's no electricity. There is no access to clean water. Sometimes we wouldn't have have water at home like even all these things I wouldn't I wouldn't imagine that they're that bad but because I was exposed to new new environment that showed me what what are the basic rights that people from other countries have and we don't have so and and some of these things like for example access to water like I didn't I didn't I didn't say I didn't get it until until one of my friends pointed that out to me because in Gaza We get water for three or four hours a day and and during these hours we have we have like engine that will push water in big tank and sometimes would feel a lot of Like would fail the bathtub as well so that would have water to clean or do all these things add. It was normal to me. You know I didn't know this. This is bad but when when my pointed that out to me I was like. Oh yeah this is not right. You know so Besides there there were there would be a lot of collisions in Gaza. Like Bombini. And you know really horrible not not like war were just like is collisions. So sometimes I would go to work and then I would just freak out because there will not VC's fire so there would be skeletons and you know. Sometimes they would boom car and then just just in my mind that maybe AH car. I'm in maybe this guy in this tax is targeted. Maybe I'll die. And then you know just I go to the work and I go back mccomb and just the same thing until ceasefire is announced or whatever it is so yeah it was pretty hard like going going back after the. US spending two years in Gaza because it made me feel like how unfair the world is and help people. Just don't appreciate she it all these things in their lives you know and then After spending two years in Gaza enduring all these things like I was with my family and would live the same things but it affected me differently because I started to think that this is not right. This is not supposed was to happen so now I got another scholarship from the British Council to get my PhD. And let me tell you one thing. I think I started to recover cover from my reverse culture shock going back together up. Maybe like I started to feel that going back to myself. Maybe like a month ago because I think in my first year I wouldn't be like I don't know it say. I felt that I wasn't right because it was recovering. But now I feel I'm almost there. I started to recover.
Healthy Disciple-Making Churches
"Does a healthy disciple making church Look like And that's we're we're GONNA talk about today and it's funny because I had a discussion with a guy On instagram awhile. Back and he was like hey kind of frustrated with where he was in his church. And he's like I've been at this church a long time but I just feel like I'm not growing. I feel like the church. Leadership is holding me back from using spiritual gifts and and Some of the things that he was kind of questioning to leave. Do I stay. And that's always a hard question to ask so I'm going to start to sing Donte. I'll tell you this is something I learned from for What's his name Tom Ranier and we went through this and we planted a church? But how do you. How do you determine what a healthy churches and then Donte you can dive in. We'll talk about not only. How do we a healthy church? But how are we a disciple making church. And what is the discipleship Look Lake In a church so I'm going to start off with just five quick things. I'll tell you when you were looking at any church have to realize that the church has one head and that head is Jesus Christ You can go go to Fiji's one twenty two twenty three or First Corinthians twelve twenty seven to see that okay number two. The church has to authorities the word of God and the Holy Spirit K.. Go to second timothy three sixteen and Seventeen or John Fourteen twenty Twenty six to see that the church has basically three servants. And I would say I would call that. You have your elders and have you deacons And you have your what they call priests which is really every believer so elders and deacons guitarist about an axe fourteen in first timothy. Another big one in Titus And then we talk about the the servant as every believer as a pre story Doer of the word to spread the Gospel in First Peter two nine. Revelations one six and fusions for eleven now we're talking about what is a healthy church look like I think there's four marks of a healthy church search you have a church that has to be self-governing and has to be self supporting. It has be self reproducing in has to be self correcting okay. And then I would say there were five functions when we look at a church and these five functions can be you can look at them from Matthew Twenty to thirty seven Also in Matthew Twenty eight eighteen in the book of acts in book two but five functions of a church we're worshiping abiding expressing love towards God were involved in evangelism vandalism were engaging region loss involved in discipleship which. We're going to talk a lot more about. That's helping believers grow into Christ's likeness in the process of sanctification and then Search health and multiplication developing sustainable. Christ centered or Chrysler communities and also reaching loss and then multiplying leaders equipping leaders leaders who can equip other leaders who then equipped leaders and multiply and so forth and so forth and loving God and people through character knowledge and practice So that's that's what I kinda lay out. And that's what I learned or the five elements of a healthy church Donte what's your take on this and I know you're GonNa talk about the Road Dumais. You may us. But what is What a scripture tells about this? Yeah I I mean we'll cover acts eleven in a moment to but like if God truly wanted the download you know to us you. What discipleship is an understanding? The Authority of the word you know two disciples after the crucifixion were saddened they were trodden and and they were walking from From you're on the Road Mayson as they're walking on the road to me at ten mile walk you know all of a sudden Jesus Jesus shows it up he hides his his identity from them and then he begins to explain to them why you know from scripture from new why we had to have Masai Y Messiah had to be crucified. Invite why the Messiah Rose again any opened their hearts you know. In a way that was less than ten miles a six mile walk ten kilometer walk to the point art work by the time they were done walking with his men their hearts were burning and understanding and and totally gravitating toward the word of God and not only the word word of God. The very word that was in front of them and not asking him to leave but to stay with them and Lo and behold before he departed Jesus at his you know he revealed old whose true identity to them and their hearts were burning for for God's true so that was a model of Jesus just showing us his awesomeness that if he just wanted us to just wake up one day and have him download discipleship and download truth and the and the understanding of the word. He could easily done that.

"I'm Deanne pen with UN news. UN agencies are assisting authorities in Samoa as they battle a measles outbreak which has killed more than sixty people abo- mainly babies the World Health Organization. Who has flown in emergency medical teams from across the globe who are working alongside local colleagues in a mass inoculation campaign using vaccines supplied by the UN Children's fund UNICEF the UN also supporting a national awareness campaign aimed that were building trust following the deaths last year of two babies during routine vaccinations. Simona Marinescu the UN Resident Coordinator in Samoa Discusses Discusses these developments and plans for long term recovery with Julia Dean from the UN Information Centre in Canberra. As you're not only are student. A state of emergency the source declared on fifteen November where the mass vaccination campaign that started on the twentieth of November and was a two day shutdown to ensure that all people who are still not vaccinated gets demonization from dedicated medical teams. We have four one thousand two hundred seventeen. Measles cases recorded today and sixty two deaths unfortunately and in in their vast majority Babies and other nineteen babies are fighting for their lives. Seen the ICU. So the situation remains critical and medical teams. Sir Are Mindful of the importance of rapid vaccination across the country. What is the UN been doing in the field trump the very beginning the united Nike nations through UNICEF supplies of vaccines across the country. We have been supplying today to over two hundred hundred thousand vaccines to ensure that these mass vaccination can take place W. H. O. Abroad in-country emergency medical because teams from all over the world and have been assisting nurses and medical personnel more. Broadly in all of eighty facilities where people get vaccinated and today where in the field was the one hundred twenty eight. Medical teams deployed assisting them to run. The vaccination would all support a needed on top of that the entire U. N. team provided funding the systems for national awareness campaign with teams organized with the Ministry of Women Community and Social Development the Ministry of Health the Minister of Education to knock on the doors of people everywhere in the community to make them aware of the importance of vaccination as you may in always having country anti vaccination groups. We had A horrible story last year when two babies where codes during the routine vaccination so to rebuild confidence reveal trust we had to run Campaign and also the United Nations applied for the the Central Emergency Response Fund for the two point seven mediating tall tall some on the Pacific to be made available for the response. The last piece of Super Suppo- argues putting together the appear. I also want to mention that with our support We have organized an online of real time monitoring monitoring of vaccination system with an application that was developed by local technology companies that it allowed individuals in each of the medical teams to record alive in real time. People who get their vaccines per her age group or geographic location for Sex data credentials. That would allow us to have a management system in place for vaccination in the future richer appeal. What defense be useful. First of all The Central Emergency Response Fund already allocated one point and five million for the emergency response in some more and one point two million for the Pacific we do have an increasing number of cases in Tonga and end in Fiji as well and we are mindful of the fact that the epidemic can spread very quickly throughout the region but this is just a response bonds to the current reality as all individuals get vaccinated. UN's hopefully Everybody who is still fighting gotta got a measles We'll be back home. We need to face the vulnerabilities that this country has was the scene of very weak. house he stemming place no management See stemmed up to allow us to know was actually vaccinated by name and agents accent Geographic Africa location as well as Mobilization of community so that as we move forward we could first of all Support Communists Communist have been affected but we also beyond the culture of immunization and a culture of respect for collective health across the country. The government of some are launching with the support of the United Nations and national response and Recovery Appeal to again address the Shortage in resources. That we have to still deal with the epidemic while also getting ready for recovery so we are supposed to Use some of those resources to ensure we build an immunization Sean Management System in this country that have digital records of people who get vaccinations that we are able to bring back the babies without route. One shot to be receiving the second shot at the right time. And that's again we manage the even is scheduled for the a baby's of this country in se stomach Way In addition to the to the appeal is also meant to provide maternal attornal services for women who are pregnant and to got measles or who are at risk to deliver babies with measles and we will also see the appeal of funds going to a psycho social services for those who lost their babies their family members and also in stating a network of services across the country that do not opt exists right now services that would look into prevention again Making sure that families Follow the schedule of humanization but also all services that will support in case other people get affected. What will final thoughts be your call to action? I think we have all learned Painful lesson here. Speak about the nation that literally had no vaccination for a certain number of months that happened on the ground of the very sad story that happened last year with the two babies skilled during a routine vaccination. The crisis revealed a horrible lavar abilities on gaps in in capacity. So we can't continue like that so we are going to prioritize moving forward the reform of the house a system and reviving the senior society organizations to help us saw literally leave no one behind when it comes to access to healthcare.

"All right kwong scientists show and tell tell me about our geologists Andrea Dutton well we described Andrea as like a CSI investigator of sea level rise but I would also consider her a time traveler to she looked specifically for fossil coral goals from this period called the last interglacial one hundred twenty five thousand years ago Oh so bp what before the podcast gone it's terrible joke anyway last interglacial earth was a little warmer than it is now and her work suggests that oceans were twenty to thirty feet higher than they are today Whoa yeah and by gathering data from the last time Earth got the swarm the last interglacial win ice sheets melted and sea levels rose Andrea can offer insights into how it could all go down in our present day okay that that is very cool and seems relevant Is there anything interesting that she's learned so far okay well Andrew told me about this one trip to the Seychelles this island nation in the Indian Ocean where her team found fossil corals at a really high elevation really high and that freaked her out why's that that's because Andrea new in that moment that in order for the corals have been that high for the ocean who've risen to that point put them there the Antarctic ice sheet must have been melting at that time that's the the single biggest massive ice on earth so when we got this result in the Seychelles I did walk away from the outcrop and I sat down on the beach and I thought myself you know what people are not going to like this because I knew right away meant that in artists have contributed a lot of ice melted and that was not good news for our future because it means that we may be headed in the same direction meaning the Antarctic icesheet may melt and contribute to sea level rise in the same way in our time so we have some clarity on what the future could look like because Andrea is traveling back in time to gather this information from oceans in the ancient past I'm into it I'm nervous about it but I'm into it yeah okay so tell me about the other Macarthur winner tell me about Stacey Stacey Jupiter I'm forty three years old and I'm the Melania director with the Wildlife Conservation Society Melanesia is a region in the Pacific Ocean home to all these island nations Fiji where she's located Papua New Guinea the Solomon Islands just to name a few the water is just beyond her doorstep and I'm trying to get out as much as I can and take my three year old son out as well we love to go for puddle and just show him the crabs on the seawall and we'd go look for sea snakes or raise that might scoot off as we go over them so it's a nice place just to look out and be inspired by the Marine Environment Fiji is spread across three hundred islands stacey lives in the capital Suva where she thinks a lot about how to work with locals around conservation okay how does she do well she not only looks at the hard science of what's happening to say the fish the coral reefs but the environmental factors human activity to for her conservation means not only protecting the land but the people who live on continuing their need for sustainable jobs access to natural resources their physical health or mental health sometimes this looks like formal programs other times it looks like this Oh okay this is my favorite type of sites communication what you're watching is a youtube clip of one hundred twenty five people disco dancing in the streets of Suva organized this flash mob with the motto Moran eggs more fish like all flash they're calling on the government to protect areas where fish come together to reproduce they're kind of like discos okay this frenzy of fish movement as they release their eggs and that's why it was a disco inspired flash mob this is some solid science outreach right here so fun that's not all Stacey has done she's commissioned a comic book why is she having so much fun during science I did not have this much fun well it's because you didn't help commission back in the river so they have this epic journey they come across all these obstacles on the way and to explain this whole process to kids she created a comic book called the adventures of Joe Jacobi he's a little bit precocious he gets lost from the rest of his school and he ends up having to go back upstream with this kind of crazy inventor scientists crab and his sidekicks now and through the story of them trying to get upstream defined his home they encounter all of the different hazards of human impact all along the way like fishing and dams and river sediment and then the Wildlife Conservation Society's Fiji program which Stacey used to run turned the comic book into a puppet show routed to schools and kids loved it I was onboard until puppets got involved you would love this matty in the moment right after the DOJ Gobi puppet encounters Barracuda are you sure it's just not them screaming because there's nobody knows the mysteries of children all the kids were given river-monitoring kits afterwards with the idea of encouraging there virtue of the land one day as adults indigenous people have tenure over about eighty seven to ninety eight percent of all of the land in Melanesia until it re the is those kids when they grow up they're the ones who will be looking after the place because they they own the land and they have the rights to say whether or not they're going to sleep this is pretty amazing like the level of creativity here and engagement and fun I am all for this sands puppets yeah over the phone in before our interview Stacy said to me look I'm trained in science but what moves people is stories each creativity is a big part of how she approaches commercialisation and your field and try to stay within one field and say you are the expert on this one particular topic but for myself I always didn't rebelled against that I really wanted to be more of a generalist and able to look across disciplines across different habitats and I think that and that's what's needed stacy's to tackle these seemingly intractable global problems stacey and Andrea they work on opposite sides of the world but they know each other and Andrea actually works with another macarthur fellow in this cohort Jerry Metro Rica at Harvard he interprets her data about corals so that it can

And of course, that's happening. Of course, that's up the ultimate representation, and they're trying to sue the brand for using her image without permission. I guess or. I do. Funny that Fiji like it's so evil and Larry's effigy was like, okay. So what about this made it viral such? She's just standing there. So we don't need her anymore. We just need a cardboard cutout of her holding water, and we'll just put it places that people will stand in front of it. And they did and they did. So she's mad that they're doing this without permission. They're calling it an unauthorized marketing campaign. Mike question is I'm not a lawyer. But all of these photos were on Getty, and you can buy rights to any like I could spend thousands of dollars on any Getty photo. And put it on a carport come not a lawyer. But what they're doing is like before she was just like a random model in the Fiji campaign. And now she's kind of like the main star of the Fiji campaign. So it is a slightly different like designation of use it's different. But that's what that's what that's what Getty images license up access to that. I don't think you're thinking just like on image use level, but this is like a bigger level. Like now, she's become the Fiji girl like the, quote, unquote, Fiji girl is like a spokesperson for the water versus being a girl in a photo. So I'm just saying, then the lawyers are just trying to get a quick little settlement because they know they're wrong, but they know fees, you probably doesn't want bad press. So they're going to settle out of court. The Fiji water is going to get a nice Fiji water girls going to get get a nice little check. And then oops. He's going to have to get give most of it to our lawyers. And then we're never going to hear from her again, my favorite thing from this this, On I this. really. I really I feel like there's I mean again, not a lawyer. But I feel like she has a point here in terms of them not using it to this level. I think she sort of has a point. But I think you probably don't realize what you're signing away. When you sign your image away. Like, that's definitely like she. She got taken advantage of. I'm right. I I would say gig for the day became a nightmare because of this like she had a good gig. And this nothing going to happen. That's good from an overall. I think this is win win for everyone involved.

"The stopping in in Fiji and picking. The specific place read was was that was based on all been of szeswith island. Laser, my long awkward pause in our life. He's, he's probably going to bring up I land. Well, the funny thing is I, I'm beginning to see. I'm really into nooks and crannies and I'm really an islands, and I got to experience both. Is there an island get full of nooks and crannies? That would be absolutely incredible. We flew into Fiji on the mainland and then we took a what they call a speedboat just a really fast boat still took thirty minutes to go. It was dark. So it was hard to tell exactly what we passed. Some islands, and then we went to the island called castaway island which is based. I don't know if that's the proper name of the island, but it's the name of the resort on the island, which is the only resort on the island, which at low tide. Just to give you an idea how big island is you could hike all the way around the island in an hour. So it's pretty small. This the only resort on the island in there's like sixty individual huts where you can stay. That's all that's extending when we were planning this trip. I first of all Fiji has over three hundred islands, and I've always wanted to stay on on an island that small. I felt like I was stranded. Right? You think it might be the the the huts on stilts that are over the ocean water, but that's like Bora. Bora that's there. Well, there are. We did pass somebody that's not really what it's known for, but are the travel agent that we were using actually was like, well. Oh, you guys got kids. You probably should do a resort on the mainland, you know, because they're going to get bored or whatever. And I was like, listen, I, I don't know if we're ever going to go back to this place I want to do. I don't care how board the kids get. I want to live like Robinson Crusoe on an island that I can walk around and that's why we chose this this place. And so the boat pulls up to the island and the guy is like, is going to be a wet landing and we really, and then we realized that there's no doc. The boat and we had all our luggage, the boat just pulls up to the sandy beach at I two foot of water and we and we have to literally take our shoes off, enroll our genes up and walk into the ocean to get onto the island because there was not doc. I mean, that's how I learned this island is, but there's resorts on all of these little islands because they're all protected by Barrier Reef from huge surf. So there's not surf crashing on these beaches. It's like totally swim. -able just mild is still got windy, but there wasn't the waves crashing on on the beaches ever, especially on the side of the island where we were luxury aiding. I mean, I've never. I've never. It's just the best place I've ever stayed man. It's like you stay in this hot. You see these on car, you like, I've I, you know, I'm szeswith islands, but I'd like see these postcards or these pictures on the internet. And and I'm just like, I mean, we've been to Hawaii in Hoy's. Incredible and beautiful. Yeah, but at least the parts that we went to, it wasn't like that picturesque like beach with the palm trees in the hammock, but that's what this was. It was like that and it wasn't just palm trees. There were all types of trees that grew right up to the beach and in the huts were like in it was just really amazing. It was perfect man is what I everything I hope for. So then I'm like, I'm sitting on my lounge chair. I got my little drink from the bar that I just walked down there too. And then I'm in the shade 'cause I don't. I don't like to sit in the sun. And now my, you know, I'm getting kind of. Cold. I'm I'm just going to go out there on the sand and I'm just going to split out and I'm just going to get warm. I'll come right back to my seat.
