"Yeah? I say the Belmont states do, but I'd say those away, I'm going to give you three, you asked for one. I'd say the Met mile, the Belmont stakes and the breeders cup classic, certainly with the Travers being right there. So I'm no different than, you know, the vast majority of other owners that are trying their best to operate at the top end of the business, but I think met Maya would be extra special when you look at the stains that have come out and the fact that it is such a stallion making race. So that is the first thing that comes to my mind. All right, thanks for the email, roger. We have another one here from Steve. And this one's pretty cool, Terry. He wants to know, let's see. How you apply what you've learned at the military academy to your ownership group, Steve says that he was bred a few miles up the Hudson from West Point and it's always a very special place to visit. He also goes on to say thank you for your service. So what have you learned at the military academy that you apply to your ownership group? Yeah. I do think that's a good question because I talk to other veterans in the business because there are quite a few that are in the ownership ranks or a couple of trainers, I think of John sheriffs who I just want to give a shout out he just got on nominated the Hall of Fame. He served in a Vietnam and we've talked a little bit, but it's about paying attention to detail. And it's about being focused on, of course, the horses, but the people, right? You have to be a platoon leader or a company commander or a battalion commander in the sense that you have people and you have to motivate them and you have to train them, you have to chastise them. And you have to build an environment that's fun, but effective. So I don't think there's one thing, but I think when you put it into the pot, the military in America is the best breeding ground and the best thing you could do to start your development into being a leader and to running an organization. So I give a lot of thanks to my military background. I'm actually in a Vegas with 40 of my buddies from college. We serve together. In a Germany. And we talk a lot about those kind of things, but the fraternity of coming out of the military, I think is extra special. And I think culture in any organization is really, really important. And I think that's one of the things. If you're paying attention in the military, you see with the right culture, there are a lot of things that a unit and a group of people can do. You mentioned being out in Vegas now with 40 of your military friends and classmates and teriyaki can tell you I had the distinct privilege and you were so kind to extend an invite to myself and Michelle when we were at the army navy game to attend a tailgate that you and your classmates do every single year. And it was so amazing to see the way that camaraderie still exists and that the brotherhood still exists and man, I am so thankful for that opportunity. I'll never forget it. So thank you for that. And I know that's something that's very important to you is to keep that camaraderie and the brothership alive each and every year through things like your Vegas trip through things like the tailgate at the army navy game. Yeah, you know, we're all in this and we're all competitive and everybody does everything we can to take great care of the wonderful horses that we have and trust it into us. But it's also about people and the relationships because our business is up and down, right? But you have to, you have to have a solid relationship with the people in your system so that when times get tough, you're not looking to cut and run, right? You're looking to come together as opposed to going away. And I'd like to think that we offer that to our trainers. We give them confident. We send them horses. I'm sure we talk, and we don't always agree, but I'd like to think that they know that I got their back and they have my back and our back too. And I think that's key in our business because I mean, just think about it, to train resources for a living. And to be in a position where you know if you don't run well or there's a mistake or say a horse develops a problem that the band is going to show up the next day at your barn and the horses are going to go across over to the other side of the stable area. I venture to offer to you that that's not a really good climate and it's not a good culture. So I guess thinking back to your other question, I think that's one of the things our people, like I'd like, I do demand that we support each other. And we address the problems that we have and the challenges that we have to address, but we have each other's back. And I think it's really helped in a very competitive business. These Terry Finley West Point thoroughbreds, Terry, really appreciate you spending time to talk to our listeners here on you be the host.

"Are in the upper echelons of if you were to ask that question to a racing fan or to anybody in the business. You know, they're probably going to say either keenly or a delmar or Saratoga. So I guess it just depends on the success that you've had at that racetrack. And or the region of the country that you're from. But I would say Saratoga in my case. But again, 888-966-4776, the number of the call. This is your chance. You are hosting the show. This segment is all about you, HR and nation. You call in. You be the host and ask questions of Terry Finley from West Point thoroughbreds. John is in New York. He sent an email to the program here, Terry. He wants to know what advice you give to somebody who is thinking about getting involved with racehorse ownership. I'd say two are at the top. I'd say one, take it slow. You know, obviously, we've all seen people that jump in too quickly. And it takes a while to kind of get your footing in the business as an owner. And they get frustrated because there are quite a few things in our business that if you look at them from the outside world that they don't make sense and they don't, you know, you can't kind of walk through it. Except after you've been around it and then day by day, things start to fall into place. And the other thing is you don't put too much money in to make you uncomfortable. And to really give you a pit in your stomach when you start to look at the at the P and L of your stable because we all know it's an incredibly tough business and endeavor just on the P and L side. But obviously we know that the lifestyle value and ROI is absolutely through the roof, especially when you have a good one. I'll throw the number out again. 888-966-4776, number to call 8 8 8 9 6 6 HR N your chance to host the show and call in with Terry Finley. Terry, I loved Georgia Naples question about, you know, you could only watch races at one racetrack. You can only go to one racetrack, whatever that context was. I think that's such a cool question. I'll spend it this way. Terry Finley can only go back and relive one race that you've been part of. What one are you going to relive? You know, I like to answer because I know we're on a time frame, but I'd love to give that a little thought, but since we're on live radio, I have to say that Kentucky Derby, we owned our partners on the very small piece of always dreaming, but I just, I'll never forget the last three 16 so a mile when we, I knew, unless somebody came from out of the clouds that we were going to win and my family all around me. So I tell people, if you ever have a chance to win The Kentucky Derby, take advantage of it fully. Yeah, I can only imagine what that moment was like, you and I talked several times afterwards and that had to be extremely special. Tom is in Virginia. Tom, you are on hosting the show with Terry Finley. Go ahead. Hey, Terry. Hey, your business. I assume is built on purchasing good two year olds. In general, what is the process from getting the book to go into the sale to the purchase of the horse and decide where that horse goes? I would say it's a working progress. So there's no set protocol. And I think from my military days, I think our team is always trying to make things better. So about 5 years ago, we brought David and gordo onto our team, one of the top bloodstock agents in the world, David thinks he is the best, and I love that. I love that in him. You know, you got to have confidence in this game and if you look at his stats, he's at the very, very top end of our business. But the person on the ground selecting the horses is the is at the Vanguard of the whole process. And I think then you have to put together the packages and you have to be able to put a nice presentation in front of your partners or your perspective partners, right? And then you just have to manage your budget, right? You can't go to a sale on spend a lot of money and then turn around and hope you're going to get things syndicated, right? You have to kind of balance that. I think we do a better job of that now. We've been doing it for 31 years. The sales are so fascinating. I still love I still love it. We're going to go down and we're going to start the two year old debris shows at Mark OBS. What in four or 5 days? So it's a great time of the year, all the consignors are pumped every one of them thinks that and actually tells you that they have the best group ever. And once in a while, they actually do. But the buyers are excited because we're coming out of our winter, you got the Triple Crown started. So it's such a fascinating and exciting time of the year, but we buy about 60% of our class at the two year old sales. And I think that will continue. We're starting to buy a little bit more at the yielding sales. And I think that's part of the reason why we're forming the joint ventures that we've done that a lot of people are doing because it makes great sense and I think it's a very smart idea for the group as well as overall for the industry. It attracts more people to get into better and better prospects. You have about 6 minutes left in this segment to host the show with Terry Finley from West Point thoroughbreds. I'll give you the phone number again. 8 8 8 9 6 6 four 7 7 6 8 8 8 9 6 6 hr, you get the you get to ask the questions you get to be the host.

"Mike pana baron of the backtracks kicking off our number three. You got to love live radio. I mentioned that if you did miss any portion of the show so far, no big deal, all you have to do is head back to our website horse racing radio dot net. You can check out the podcast at your leisure.

Any question that you have ever wanted to ask owner Terry Finley from West Point thoroughbreds, this is your chance. If you want to talk to him about what it's like to win The Kentucky Derby, he can answer that question. If you want to ask him about racehorse ownership, he's the guy to talk to and he is with me now for you be the host. Carrie appreciate you taking the time, my friend. All right guys, always always be good to be on a great show. Yeah, really excited to have you with me and I'm excited to hear from HR and nation and get their thoughts on some things. Racehorse ownership Terry is one of those things that is somewhat mysterious to people I think. They think that, you know, as the moniker goes and thoroughbred racing, the sport of kings, you have to be a multi millionaire to get involved. But man, that's just not the case. Is it? You know, I think the data shows it is absolutely not the case, Mike. And I love the fact that there are so many people different people that are doing it. And everybody's got a slightly different slant, but the key is that all the operations, either the ones that have been around for a while or the ones that are just starting, they're all trying to attract clients and our partners into our business. And at its core, that is very, very good overall for our industry. Well, again, this is your chance to host the show. So you can call in 888-966-4776 as the number to call to get in and ask questions of Terry Finley from West Point thoroughbreds. Terry, we do have an email here. This is crystal in Tennessee. So a diss staffer and she wants to know the first horse that helped put, let's see. The first horse that helped put West Point on the map. I would say it's Seattle fits. We went over to Dubai in 2002, and at that time they had a two year old in training sale right before. The World Cup. And ended up buying Seattle fits and we kept them over there with a Karen, but. I brought them to the states and he turned out to be a really, really good horse and he actually stood in Kentucky for a while and he went back to Argentina. He was an Argentine and bred. So I would say, I would say that Coke would be the first one to kind of push us into the next dome. Where did it go from there? Who is the next big horse? That's my follow-up question on this one, Terry, because I don't know the answer. I think people, you know, they like to talk about their first one, right? So we talk about our first Derby starter. And that was a flashy bull in 2006. He didn't do very well in the Derby. And we stopped on, we brought him back as a four year old. He turned out to be a grade one winner. He stood in Kentucky for a good number of years. So he was the first one, you know, that gave us a chance to do the walk over. And I think everybody knows when you do that walk over on the first time, it's in your blood and you try to figure out every single day, everything you can to try to do that walk over again and again. So I would think flashy bull would be the second iteration in our path. All right, again, your chance to host a show and call in and ask questions of Terry Finley. We're going to go out to the phone lines. George is in Naples, George, you are hosting the show. You're on with Terry Finley. Go ahead. Hey, Terry. As a fan, we appreciate all you do. I'm sure there was many years when you put more in than you got and we appreciate you. My question. Is yeah, one more race to watch for the rest of your life. This is the last one. And what racetrack are you watching it? At Saratoga? Me too, my friend. I'll see you there. Yes, sir. So I think there are a couple tracks, obviously, that are in the upper echelons of if you were to ask that question to a racing fan or to anybody in the.

I think it's not news honestly because it's like you said it's week one. I think the sample size for jalen hurts albeit impressive. it's very small it's very small so carson wentz. You know the ankle surgery that he had the procedure. This is a new team. I i let the slide one week but next week. He's gotta come out ready to go. Yes hot news hot news because of where jalen hurts his at how he got the job went into it. Lanta on the road. Atlanta's not a great football team. It doesn't matter but every team every single week in the national football league.

"You're in kansas city for the chiefs and the browns await. Who do we have. Kimberly kimberly here. You better there it is. They can relate there. You are kimberley's still. I saw kimberly before. And somehow she's down the whole on not enough space for me on set with. He's had that ego is just not. It's not gonna work home taking up too much room key. Oh so you're in. Kansas city kimberly. For the chiefs the browser. Let's start with it. what's your biggest takeaway from the browns side of things. Listen the browns are for real. I think we saw the. I covered the divisional loss last year. Between city and browns they played the chiefs tough. Patrick mahomes got hurt that game. This game patrick mahomes and that offense looked a little shaky. Browns came out. They could go told us with this team. That was the most impressive thing. Unfortunately for the browns. You see what happens when you give me the give patrick mahomes and the chiefs any sort of wiggle room. You make any mistake. They're going to capitalize on it. All right let's play hot news or not news. Kimberly i these comments from jamaica finley moments ago on this show this national football league Age offices you gotta work. Like if he last even and i just felt. See a work ethic in aaron rodgers that i have in previous years and I actually you can see right through. His helmet is in. The face tells everything the personality and i just don't see it that. Nfl hunger. and. I just feel hungry to go win another championship. I just think it's cliche and talk. that guys get up there and say i want to win a championship on. Sounds good. But i wanna see what you do on the field hot news or not news. Kimberly man that that. Wow that was a lot. I'm going to say it's it's not news. Only from standpoint of was one game now week to monday night football they lose to the lions or ann. Rogers doesn't look like the aaron rodgers we're used to seeing then it becomes hot news. Now we're hitting the panic button a little bit like what is going on with this team the fact that it's his teammate hikes. That his former teammate. That that's crazy to me. But i don't think aaron rodgers is worried about which michael finley sandra hodge news or not newswatch michelson said. I don't think it's a news for me. I mean. I look into it as something other than what. He's watching as a football player. I mean i think there's some underlying stuff. Their relationship wise. Not only with aaron rodgers would also with the green bay packer organisation jay. I'm gonna say hot news because whenever you have a player that is talking about the former. Mvp saying that he didn't put in the time in the offseason. Knowing that everything the off season brought i understand. It's one game but that just gives you something to think about as you watch the rest of the games and the back of your mind. I'm going to say not new simply because even if you're michael finley is right. The fact that it's drew michael finley saying it. People are going to discount it. Because they're expecting a negative comment about aaron rodgers carson wentz struggling kimberly while jalen hurts balls out of control week one top news or not news.

"I am just rested. Take off. he's really not take you. We don't see it though. Yeah body padded practices that stuff. But that's not him. That's the team. When aaron rodgers was off in hawaii some of these other places. I can almost guarantee you without even knowing. He was doing something something he wanted. Just sitting around drinking my ties and laid out on the beach. He was in the little weight room. He had a football throwing it against a tree. He was doing something. Because your body clock makes you do that even if you don't want to do it because they know it's time it's marched. This is what we do. It's april may and this is what we do. But i wonder to what something doing something. That's fine like me touching the basketball and dribbling it around with me against some shots up here and they're doing something but what to what to. What degree is that. Something is that next level something. Is that a burning desire. Something is that. Hey i could be in hawaii basketball or i could be for me in chicago. Back at the borough center training getting my team may. Mj was playing baseball sitting on the counter. Young guys a hey. Let's watch them take a different type of measurement as doing something clearly what he was talking about clearly j. He wasn't there watching film and take with them. But once you get into training camp and you sit down and do all of those things you now entrenched in the start of the season. I don't think preparation-wise they were prepared as a team. So therefore automated effected the individual. The where you will look next week or this week and next week this week on sunday will be able to tell what they were and then. We'll probably come in on monday and said well detroit. Who knows but that's the thing now if no one's immune to it and maybe if it takes more than the week as jay was suggesting like are we sure he'll be ready in a week looking at the schedule which brought up earlier in the show. You gotta go to san francisco. You gotta play steelers coming steelers. Come to lambo with that defense. All the sudden you look at that detroit game which is gimme early in the season. That's a very important game for the packers early as kind of must win week. Two game yes. It is because if you got the steelers in you look at that a forty nine steelers you go. Ooh wow you know. The forty nine is trying to win their tough division which is four and everybody in. There's one in rogers trying to get in game shape in the forty niners continue to beat up on the green bay packers. So it's kinda like point and also with the pass rush me from the forty niners in the steelers. He was under that kind of duress. Point against the saints. What do you think that's going to be against those who team and the niners at is set at the niners have played tough to meantime The other thing that you're michael finley said oh was that the name may need to make a change at quarterback. Yeah he went there and they have a high who can replace them. Listen to michael i. i'm not. I'm just i'm looking out actually. I just want to gaza to do their best and play soccer football and Once again brother-in-law and it doesn't do it and i think love is going to be ready for the job. You're putting some any reaction to that guy. yeah. I don't know what pretty soon means. That was pretty soon next. Year is pretty soon next. Week is pretty soon six weeks eight weeks. It's a good point soon. next year. this next year he graduates. Ain't gonna be there anyway. Of course really know what you're michael. I wish we could have kind of followed up there and see a win. Win is pretty soon. I don't think jordan love is going to be playing quarterback for the green bay packers. This season i think most likely if anything it'll be next season just because we saw him in the preseason and then we didn't see him in the preseason he didn't get a whole lot of reps so i don't think he would be ready at all and clearly. He's not getting any reps this year. Right now with aaron rodgers being the number one guy he. How bad would it have to get for us to see jordan jordan loving plan this year. Okay so there's no matter how bad it gets unless interrupts gets hurt. Okay yeah i mean. He was like a plausible scenario. Where air rogers did that for the next ten weeks what he did against the saints but he hit you still as dry. I mean look. That's not possible unless there's an injury because we saw the dude ball he was. Mvp last you don't go to from mvp. I forgot this like no not happen. Right unless aaron rodgers over the next ten weeks show you what he did against the saints and that same that same thing 'cause at body and they're out of so you might as well attorney jordan. But that's not going to happen. This not going to like me going in the east river trying to swim not going to happen. He can't swim in general. That's why it's not to. This is key sean.

Man on seeing how they play This sunday Seeing how the receiving core and ann. Rogers did not gel together and the defense did not make tackles Or make any turnover so The packers and look look to well First game season seeing what what went wrong with them. No i just think I didn't see preparation I didn't see hunger. I didn't see guys wanted to be out there And once again. I'm if you know a brother minded is i saw twelve bring in eighteen and then throw him the ball one time you know what i mean so I got told you guys last time on show. You can't bring your brother and expect to win championships. Yeah that's like bringing a family member to your business. So and i think that's air rogers. There would call. Yeah when when you when you look at as you say. Lack of preparation things of that nature. Do you attribute that to only seven. Padded practices is less than two hours. No preseason so they look like a team that was based on that type of preparation absolutely Like you said. No padded practices not enough padded practices. Like i said man you gotta get that. That game situation in practice going Because once again as you've seen And we want the. The packers wasn't ready and I seen a lot of guys that did didn't plan the preseason like i say back Couple of several years ago every bite fight the preseason. Everybody got hit and And i seen a lot of guys. That wasn't ready to uh to get on the field and play full speaking fin. You said something that really struck a nerve with me. You said no guys come out and play with that grit play with that hunger. And every time. I hear aaron rodgers. Talk seem like he kind of passes the buck as it relates to blame. Do you do you censor. Do you feel that. Maybe that same camaraderie. That used to be behind aaron rodgers. Maybe starting to wean tat from his teammates or no I do about once you gotta play.

The Inspiring Story of Margaret E. Knight
"So margaret louise night. She was a prolific american inventor of machines and mechanisms for a variety of industrial everyday purposes. Margaret was nicknamed maddie mit. She lived with her widowed mother and older brothers. Charlie and jim in a little house in york maine. she was born in eighteen. Thirty eight by the way so after her father passed away mattie had inherited his toolbox and she liked to think of things that could be made with these tools and she drew them in a little notebook that she labeled my inventions. Mattie demonstrated knack for tools and mentioned from an early age making toys kites sleds and household items in as little girl. She preferred to play with woodworking tools. Instead of dolls saying that quote the only thing she wanted whereas a jack knife gimblett and pieces of wood. She knew she wanted good for her so when she was eleven. Maddie's finley moved to manchester new hampshire to work in the textile mills there and so matty was going to continue going to school only going so far as a complete her elementary school education and she got to know the head engineer there while wandering around the grounds after school waiting for her family to be done with their like fourteen to eighteen hour shifts. Sure textile mills. Yeah including like her twelve year old brother and fourteen so at age twelve. She started working the mill herself and aloom ow function and injured a worker So it turns out that one of the leading causes of serious injuries at the mill that she had observed was the propensity of the steel-tipped flying shuttles so those were manipulated by workers to unite the left in the warp threads in their weaves. I'm so these shuttles would come free of their looms and they would like shoot off the machines high-velocity even at like the slightest employee error. So like there were people dying from this. There are people like you know basically like you're getting almost shot. Yeah basically tipped metal thing like flying off a machine you know so it was really dangerous and so matty what she did. She created a guard. That would stop the shuttle from coming off of the machine if it malfunctioned. So like the exact details of this device have kind of been lost to history but mentions of it came out throughout published stories of her work and her Mentions articles that will get into so again because this was the mid nineteenth century. And why would anybody document what they actually did anyway. So workman who installed these types of guards all the looms and all the males in manchester. So this sounds like a big deal. She clearly didn't make any money for sure. You know maybe save some lives so after she turned eighteen. Mattie left manchester for better opportunities She worked in several different factories on new england along with other short-term technical jobs too so that she could keep

"You have. There's a third you know this'll be another topic. There actually is the third party in every relationship of husband. Wife and the third party is love. It's what brings us together. It's what keeps us together and it is what allows us to see through the eyes of itself ways in which we can give ourselves up so that we can be better lovers better husbands better wives. You just said something. That's pretty profound you said. It's the negative emotion in the the pain if you will. It's the pain if you will that can lead us to the light. And that's again something you and i have touched on in the past that the darkness is important It makes the light all that brighter. Exactly again it's i mean you can go east or west scripture but you know the light in the darkness. The darkness doesn't know it. And so what we find out through love is that we brought these demands with us which is a form of darkness because they always express themselves in anger or irritation impatience and then to realize you know what i didn't know that was in me. Thank you patricia. My wife for helping me see that. Imagine what would happen in this world. Not just husbands and wives but governments people politic if people understood. I don't really understand the kind of pain. I'm in and i'm going to be grateful to you for helping me to learn about it so i can be released from it and literally be reborn moment to moment in this relationship with you. Well i would only say that. Unconditional love does exist between men and dog between pat and owner or pat and mail or human friend. but i don't believe unconditional love exists between human beings. There are conditions. But as you're saying if we address our own condition we can. We can meld pretty well with the other person and understanding. Look you just said you you. You kind of back stepped on yourself. If i'm if. I have all these conditions i bring with me. It can't be unconditional love but if you help me understand. I have brought this condition with me. I realize it is not helpful. It's harmful and die to it. Then now i am without that condition which means i am more unconditionally capable of loving. Were before the condition was a captive of my past so we can find out for sure that there is an unconditional love by letting love show us its existence. These are individuals that you've taught then had experience with me. These people in the book first names only of course. of course. yeah look. Life is relationship if we were smart and could use every last one of them we would be literally self realized beings which is the purpose of our existence on this planet.

"That if a man or a woman could understand that my momentary agreement to see the pain and myself and be aware of it is going to give me empower me to not throw that pain back on my partner. If i love someone do i want them to hurt exactly i do not i can feel that i want them to but if i really love someone love never causes pain to another human. Being love. Never blames nerve. Love never points. The finger. love is accepts the circumstance so that the consciousness itself can be to use the word expanded. And if i won't suffer myself i'm gonna make you suffer. But if i'll be conscious of myself that consciousness will include you not being part of the pain. I men then. I give myself up and we get into something very beautiful. And you're in a perfect laborious setting here to do this when you're intimate with someone you know meaning you'll either live with them when you're very close. It doesn't work as well. Sometimes when you're dealing with friends that you see only occasionally and you know you you get that you get that brush off and you think the worst and you you hold a grudge for a million years. Not as the more doable. But it's more enjoyable to know that there is a way out besides fighting and lashing and gnawing at each other all day long. That's a horrible way to get up in the morning. And live your life or my god and i can't stress it jordan strongly enough that as we gain new self understanding. We gain the capacity for compassion. We gain the capacity for kindness even with strangers. Because let's look at one bit of this. When i'm angry at someone who brushed me off and i wake up in the morning or i go to bed thinking about them. Are they in my bed with me. No we hope not be awed but yes. My wife looks at guy who the heck is. But i'm i'm laying there are you sure are an image and an experience in my mind. So what is it. That i'm resenting and loathing in that moment in my actually angry at the person or m my living again and lashing out at an image and an experience so that i'm actually allowing my mind to hit itself to to cause itself pain again by revisiting something that only exists now in my imagination so that the power of the past to punish me is a is a consensual problem to discover that is.

Twenty twenty and it is a data platform that seeks to make complex inaccessible data about covid and related issues more accessible to journalists and the public and researchers and it seeks to stimulate data driven journalism and decision making across the continent. Because at the moment there are a lot of data challenges around covid for africa. We see that in europe and america. There's a lot of data available on the continent. It's far more difficult to come by. How do we get individuals to trust the the data that they receive from from the media and from journalists in environment that currently living in trust both in the media and in government is at an all time low but one of the ways that we can overcome that is providing accuracy and credibility and by unpacking the sources in the make a dodgy around how that data is collected if we are clear that this is the reason data's being collected. We are clear that this is how it was done. Why who it was funded by that offers. A level of trust that audiences can then buy into
Rage, Rage Against the Dying of Moore's Law
"The tech industry is continuing to rage rage against the dying of moore's law. Ibm says it has created the first ever to nanometer chip which ibm says could improve performance by forty five percent at the same power or five percent energy at the same performance compared to seven nanometer. Chips quoting mantech. Every decade is the decade that test. The limits of moore's law and this decade is no different with the arrival of extreme ultraviolet or e uv technology the intricacies of multi pattering techniques developed. On previous technology nodes can now be applied with the finer resolution that e uv provides that along with other more technical improvements can lead to a decrease in transistor size and ebeling the future of semiconductors to that end today ibm is announcing it is created the world's first two nanometer node chip just to clarify here while the process node is being called to nanometer. Nothing about the transistor dimensions resembles a traditional expectation of wet. Two nanometers might be in the past. The dimension used to be an equivalent metric for two d. feature size on the chip such as ninety nanometer sixty five nanometer and forty nanometer however with the advent of three d. transistor design with thin sets and others. The process node name is now an interpretation of an equivalent to transistor design some of the features on the ship are likely to be low single digits in actual nanometers such as transistor finley protection layers. But it's important to note the disconnect in how process nodes are currently named often the argument pivots to transistor density as a more accurate metric. And this is something that ibm is sharing with us. Today's announcement states that ibm's two nanometer development will improve performance by forty five percent at the same power or seventy five percent energy at the same performance compared to modern seven nanometer processors ibm is keen to point out that it was the first research institution to demonstrate seven nanometers. Back in two thousand fifteen and five nanometers in two thousand seventeen the latter of which upgraded from sin sets to nanno sheet technologies that allow for a greater customization of the voltage characteristics of individual transistors. Ibm states that. The technology can fit fifty billion transistors onto a chip. The size of a fingernail reached out to ibm to ask for clarification on what the size of a fingernail was given that internally we were coming up with numbers from fifty square millimeters two hundred fifty square millimetres. Ibm's press relations stated that the fingernail in this context is one hundred and fifty square millimeters. That puts ibm's transistor density at three hundred and thirty three million transistors per square
Cuba is working on a homegrown COVID-19 vaccine program
"Cuba. The Communist run Caribbean island is soon to launch the third phase of clinical trials on its own Corona virus vaccine produced by government scientists. Government hopes the vaccine will not only end Cuba's cove in 19 crisis but become an important source of revenue for the cash strapped nation. Austria. Cuba had largely contained the outbreak. But after the country reopened to tourism, the number of daily infections and Corona virus related deaths rose to its highest point. So far from Havana will grant reports Some of the equipment Havana's Finley Institute, maybe a little outdated, but the science itself is cutting edge. This hundreds of vials passed through a sorting machine. They're part of Cuba's greatest hope for a solution to its Corona virus crisis. So but on a DOS Cuba's domestically produced cove in 19 vaccine made entirely in Cuba by Cuban researchers, so banana dos is a conjugal vaccine, meaning and androgynous fused to a carrier molecule to bolster the vaccine, stability and effectiveness. The island has much experience in this field. Having developed the meningitis B vaccine in the late 19 eighties with the same approach. Certainly the Communist run government his confidence so, but Anna dos is. The solution is already in phase two clinical trials and they aimed to vaccinate everyone on the island by the end of the year. In fact, says the director of the Finley Institute doctor, they sent their various Bencomo. There are ambitious plans to export it to the rest of Latin America commercial for what we're trying to have. In the order of $100 million during 2021. And totally will dedicate report of part of these doses to the full immunization of the country. That to happen, it will need the help of other nations. Doctor very says it's too early in the relationship with the Biden administration for the US to play a role just yet. Our make Europe Canada, So we have people participating in our drama from Italy and France. Fortunately, not today with the U. S. We hope that in the next fishery will be possible. We moved to a next step off rotation collaboration. And after, and Vasa pride, Barcelona Open son I don't know what for many Cubans, the vaccine can't come soon enough. The outbreak in Cuba was largely contained by the middle of last year after the government imposed strict measures from a curfew in Havana to daughter door health checks and an aggressive track and trace program. Anyone merely showing symptoms was placed into state run quarantine centers as well as anyone returning from abroad. Almost all flights were halted and tourism, the lifeblood of the island's economy, ground to a halt. However, eventually the economic picture became so bleak the government had to re open. Now visitors must take an obligatory PCR test at the airport and least in theory remain in home Quarantine for a day's Since the re opening, though the transmission figures in Corona virus related deaths in Cuba have crept up to their worst point since the pandemic began, one of the other girl, all those rebel in the government's daily televised updates, the covert 19 statistics have steadily risen to more than 1000 cases a day tiny in comparison to some nations like Mexico, Brazil or the U. S. It's still more than is comfortable for Cuba's overstretched health service has the island simply can't afford to buy millions of doses of an internationally produced vaccine, even from allies like Russia or China? The pressure is on the scientists working on sobered Anna dos. As Cuba's economic slump worsens. There are long queues outside most stores as people search for scarce basic goods. The recent coronavirus spike prompted the government to close down the tourism sector. Once again without millions of free spending visitors in the hotels, bars and restaurants, Cuba is hurting economically more now than at any other time since the end of the Cold War. So Madonna means sovereignty in Spanish and the government hopes the vaccine bearing that name will not only alleviate the island's health crisis, but its economic one,
Mini-Episode "Answer me this" Guest predictions: Bears QB - burst 2
"First time podcast. Guest longtime listener mark silverman. Espn one thousand co host of waddle and silvy two to six every day on espn. One thousand. I am going to go and i had a list the other day on the show of seventeen quarterbacks who could be hat or who could be on the move and out of all of those if i have to pick one. I'm going to go jimmy garoppolo. I believe san francisco's in a position. Right now where they have a really good thing going and they want to replace jimi g. since he's been injury prone i think you can get jimmy g. for cheaper than he's been whether he's caught you could sign up for cheaper free agent deal. He may want to go back to new england. Maybe bella jack doesn't want him but ryan pace eastern illinois guy also Fellow good-looking guy. Just like with trubisky could veer that way as well. So i'm going jimmy g. And as a close second maybe gruden gets rid of derek carr and the bears would trade for garrett car but those are my two if you force me to pick one. I'm going with jimmy garoppolo.

Google is facing the biggest antitrust case in a generation
"The Justice Department announced that they filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, accusing them of monopolizing the online search and search advertising markets. It's no secret that Google is a major player in these areas. The Justice Department is alleging that about 80% of American search queries go through Google. Also, it's chrome browser controls about 70% of the global online browser market. 85% of smartphones globally run its Android operating system. This is just a first step in what could be a lengthy and messy court battle for moron with the DOJ is alleging, and what it could mean for consumers will speak to Kyle Daily Technology editor at Axios, this pretty indisputable stuff, right? I mean, when you think of search you think of Google. I mean, there is myself being there's some other alternatives, but you know they're pretty. Finley used. The DOJ points out in the suit that Google controls about 88% of what it called General search, which is, you know In the open Web, searching Google maps searching for general information That's not like, Hey, I'm on Amazon and I want to search this closed platform specific product. And the challenge with bringing antitrust cases against the big tech companies. Is that a lot of them like Google, now free to use there isn't really clear, clean, observable consumer harm where it's like prices went up. Because of your monopoly. That's bad. We're gonna crack down on you. You know there are no prices for the consumer, so they have to sort of do two things here. One is define a market that's being monopolized which can be kind of challenging itself. So you know what you first have to do is establish. Okay, Here's something where Google Clearly has the monopoly and that is, as you say, online search and then be causing harm. So what DOJ is saying the harm is is really to competition, or sort of would be competition that Google has used its position and that it uses agreements that it makes With Apple with wireless carriers with Samsung and other companies that actually makes phones at one android toe lock it in as the default search engine on your smarts on are sort of core your carrier around your Web browser, and then it uses that to achieve this market dominance and shore up its market dominance, And then that sort of this self fueling thing, where the more ubiquitous Google is, the better it's product become. Is because it can feed the engine with more data, and it just sort of breaks away from the competition is definitely there. You know, you think of things like Kleenex or Xerox. You know those air the brand names or whatever the things that they kind of represent, now, you don't Here. Somebody said, Hey, go being that people say go Google that I mean, it's a product that we know and everybody uses all the time. What is Google say in response to all of this Because I was just reading some of it. You know, they said, Well, our product is just so good that That's why people like to use it and they have the other options and they just don't Yeah. I mean, that's why this is such an interesting case. And that's why, you know, we kind of expected continue seeing antitrust cases possibly brought against some of these big tech companies, particularly Facebook, but also Amazon, possibly Apple that there's a high likelihood that regardless of which party is in power We're going to keep seeing this. So they say exactly what you said. In response. They say they put in use the word monopoly, but they sort of copped to monopolize the market. But they say that's just because we're that good. You know, the other options are out there. You are free as a consumer to choose them. You're free to change the default on your phones so that its searching being more Google or doctor go. You do the same thing on your browser. People stick with us. This is Google talking because We just have the best search engine and we're not deliberately taking any action to prevent competition. And they say he's the same arrangements that they make with Apple to be the default in safari. They say. You know, the other guys are totally free to do that. And if they had a better product, and maybe they would have more more. These agreements like we have
"finley" Discussed on The LEAD Podcast
"Not one thing but we have different pathways into the community. We call this the narrow few principle the narrower your outreach into the community the few of the people you're going to reach the broader your outreach the possibilities you have and they're like different pathways from the church out into the community if i have one pathway to my church not many people are gonna walk on it but if i have ten pathways out there i've got ten opportunities so every ministry that we do whether it's a health ministry. My wife has eight or ten on her health ministry team and on monday nights. They're reaching out into the community with health. Ministry exercise causes stress. Management causes natural lifestyle. Food eating classes. You know naturalized a cooking classes in a variety of other classes. Then we have bible study ministry and we have seminars that we run in the community. There is social aspects of ministry music concerts that take place so the more those ministries we have and what we really try to do is create a culture in the church of evangelism so that people say Now do you hold four week. Evangelistic meetings there are times. we do But we do that. Only one we have a sufficient interest base. But i tell them. My meetings are no longer four weeks. I believe you need longer meetings. They say longer meeting jeff. Three hundred sixty five days a year so evangelism for us is not that one reaping event. It's three hundred sixty five days. A year are people are out in business. They're out in their engineering professions in their medical professions in their sales professions their students in university and high school and every one of them is a witness for christ where they are and then our programs help to support their ongoing witness in the community. It seems that you're trying to connect the church with the community. But not only that. You're trying to provide different not only the pathways for them to come in for them to serve us. Well right exactly exactly in your experience. What would you say is the purpose like the the effect the result and the final result. That evangelism should have in a person. I think there are two things first. That evangelism should be an witnessing so winning. I use evangelism. I use it in the broadest term. The sharing of christ the sharing of the gospel the sharing of the bible. The sharing of god's in time prophetic message. I think that I in our hearts the more we share the more. We want to share the moral of christ the more want to witness for christ the more eye witness for christ more. I love christ. So it's that bland. That beautiful blend. And i really believe that the ultimate effect is what it does in our own hearts as we get involved in the salvation of others. Our own souls are saved because selfishness is at the very heart of the nature of sin and soul winning starves selfishness to death I know we have very limited time and one last question before we get to a final word that we want to give you is there are new methods of evangelism today over -tunities that were not open when you first started you know. We have the media social media video youtube so many different things. How can we start galvanizing those opportunities you know not to just use them ass platforms to make people aware of we talk with michael lewis in a previous podcast about this. That twitter doesn't bring community engagement community engagement. This when you actually go in like. You're their incarnation lee with people. How can we use these resources. Vast amount of resources today. What's what's the future of evangelism looking like for you. Yeah well we used social media very regularly Every sabbath afternoon. I have a question and answer period on my iphone and my producers in his studio we split the iphone to sabbath so he had forty five thousand people that we were engaged with their in our every sermon. We put on post on youtube. We average between twenty five thousand one hundred thousand views Are better sermons. He'll be two hundred two hundred three hundred thousand views. We did one on seventh day adventists. That did four hundred sixty or seventy thousand views. So we're doing youtube. We're doing social media. And here's what my thought. His on that It is true that we you need that. Incarnation contact but social media provides you a platform to contact people that you could never otherwise contact and then you'd be an engaging with them through social media and in that way many of them can come to your church many of them so we do extensive radio. We still do television. We do social media. And here's what are thought is it is that you reach out in as many ways as possible as jesus said you throw out the net so we throw out the net in every possible way members. Witnessing seminars held programs held social media radio you throw that net out but i think social media has tremendous possibility for the future. One more thing As i listened to a lot of the things maybe some of the leaders listening to his bike ass may think i have four five church district. I don't have all this budget to these activities and bring all of that. What's one step that we can take to start that evangelism process us what you have in. Jesus didn't have a bread making factory but he had loaves and fishes and he multiplied those lows and fishes to feed five thousand people. And so you begin where you are because there's no other place to begin and begin on your knees asking god what you can do with the resources that you have used what you have and god will give you what you don't have a man elder finley. Thank you very much. Thank you we want to give you one final thought one challenge that you wanna give. The thought leaders are listening to buy gas. Go ahead couple things that we might be helpful. We have what we call the evangelistic training school living. Hope school of evangelism. It's in virginia about an hour from the general conference. I'm gonna give you a phone number if you have any interest in taking some of our classes We runs about seven sessions a year five days each from sunday to thursday. And if you'd like to attend we'd love to have you attend. We don't charge for our classes. You just pay for your meals and for your hotel. Here's a phone number. You can call my administrative assistant at the general conference. Three zero one. Six eight zero six six one nine three zero one. Six eight zero six six one nine. Her name is sonia howard and Ask her about our classes. She can send you material. She can send you brochures etc second thing. I'd like to make you aware of. Is we have what we call. The hope lives three sixty five bible study university. We have seventy seven courses now. We have courses in leadership courses in preaching courses in bible study courses in health. Some of them cost something but many of them do not. So if you log onto hope leaves three sixty five bible study dot com. That's hopefully it's three sixty five bible study dot com and you can get onto our university page and look at the courses. We have download them. Take them it'll help you in your own Ministry so we're here to support you. We have now passed or retreat center where pastors can come and go to a retreat of beautiful retreat center. We have school of evangelism. We have our online university. So we're here to support you as pastors a guys. Thanks so much for listening to the lead. Podcast my name is ryan becker.

"finley" Discussed on The LEAD Podcast
"Back to the league podcast today. We have mark findlay and you may know his name. He has been an evangelist for years. Now in the disturbed. And we're just going to be talking about the topic of evangelism doing some reflections. And what do we what has changed. I think that that's something that we're really interested. Elder finley But for those of you that may not know you. Just tell us a little bio of yourself. Well i've been a ministry. Flu is fifty three years a lot. Many of those years were in evangelism a lot of times in city evangelism but when we talk about evangelism we're not talking about simply an event. We're talking about a process. We're talking about looking at a city understanding its demographics and its background. We're looking at a comprehensive approach that includes renewal revival for local churches revitalization it includes the worship service inspiring worship biblical preaching. It includes equipping and training members community outreach in a variety of ways and of course public proclamation and discipleship of new members so we look at that evangelism really has changed in the last. I would say twenty twenty five years you know. You mentioned a lot of things they are. It seems to maybe a lot of the leaders listening to this bike is we've out of the members mean that's a lot for evangelism. How can we make it digestible for this generation. That is so accustomed to bite size responses and very quick things. sure And i did. I put a lot in one thing. bite-size responses People have have basic human needs. So let me give you some examples the when you look at a community. There are basically four fundamental human needs. Their physical needs the need to For example produced the potentially of cancer the need to reduce the risk of a heart attack the need to lose weight the need to get on a better exercise for those physical needs in their social. Needs new you need for social interaction. the need for relationships the need for friendship. Then there's emotional needs the need to be free from anxiety worry fear depression etc then there are spiritual needs The deeper need to know god. So what we've found in our evangelism is we structure our approach to meet the needs of the community so although we may live in a bite size generation when we meet the needs of people they that are at their interest point. They are much more willing open and responsive to participate in our outreach programs so for example if i'm running a program on a depression recovery. People are willing to commit one night a week for ten weeks to come to that if that's their point of need if a person who's trying to get on a plant based diet and they want to reduce their heart disease risk and they're willing to come out one night a week for five weeks. If a person is eager spiritually. They're willing to come out to our community bible studies so what our goal is is in our local church today that i work with and in my evangelism is to look at the basic needs. That people have ascertained. Those needs attempt to meet those needs. You you talk about your local church and you know there are a lot of local churches today that are not engaging in evangelism in all that have not done. Neither an event nor the lifestyle. How can we kick start evangelism again in our local church and make sure that we're meeting any of those four needs for groups of needs. Now we talked about. I think one of the ways we do that is if you look at evangelistic methods and try to superimpose methods on congregations. I think you don't increase vision or inspiration. I think one of the first things that we do in a local congregation is to get those people that have an interest in outreach and interest in evangelism. Maybe they're five of them. Maybe they're a ten. Maybe there are twenty depending on the size of the church and begin praying together. Begin seeking god together. Begin asking god to direct them. To the resources the materials the ministries the people and so i see evangelism and a local congregations a people movement. And we don't wait for the effort the whole church to get involved because if you do that. That's just not going to happen. What we long to do is move with the ones that are ready to move and the others they ultimately will come along so our goal is to get a group of people in a in a church what's supposed to the churches one hundred and fifty members and let's suppose you're five or six begin to pray together. Begin to vision together. Begin to work together to say. What can we do to make an impact for christ because the truth of the matter is if a church is not involved in community outreach of it's not involved in gospel ministry if it's not involved in evangelism that church ultimately is going to die. It's going to age and eventually die. But when you are passionate for christ and you see the lost or christ and you you desire to see them one for jesus then god moves through you to develop methods to reach them. Because without the passion methods become like Dry bones without without the passion without this heart. Love for christ. So we begin to pray. We pray for ourselves. We pray for revival in our own hearts we pray that god will move through us and that he will be the miracle working god in our communities. That's amazing and i think that you have a lot of years where you have cut into reflect on hall of these methodologies and things that you have done do you remember an instance where you thought things are changing and i have to change to you know You've been an evangelist for many years and even in school. I used to watch videos like you know that the have you when you were younger How do you think like do you remember that instance where you kind of re engage in evangelism in a different manner. I think that it was not at a specific point in time but it was a gradual growing awareness on my part and it came to me as we were spending money to mail out handbills and i began to notice that early in my ministry. I would mail out. Say twenty five thousand. Thirty thousand handbills would have one hundred people. Come out to the meetings. You'd get three per thousand four per thousand every thousand you mailed you get those three or four people. Then as time went on it became two thousand. Then it's time get onto get one per thousand began to sense that you know. We're spending this money on on on mailing and society has changed. People become much more secularized in our society and we were living in a post modern post christian society in some respects and so we began to think. And i've always been interested in what i would call comprehensive evangelism so but as time has gone on. I become much more convicted. If i can use that word that comprehensive evangelism is the way to reach these cities. It's.

Tomato Success with Craig LeHoullier
"You're also like a lot of people this year though you're sort of exploring new territory literally you are but a lot of people. There's been this enormous. I mean I was talking again for that story in. The Times talked to thome stearns of high mowing organic seeds and he was saying they had a three hundred percent increase in Gardner Home Gardener sales this year and some weeks. They were up as much as five times normal week to week. And and so many people gardening garden centers or having bumper business even though with the restrictions and so forth on on on shopping. And so you know you're a little bit of a new gardener too because you're new snow as you're absolutely right and the PRI the perfect timing of our move at a time where you know there are some really real challenges and difficulties with covert. I get to go through and share an experience of what it's like to garden in a new zone in a new area when confronted with New Space. New Decisions to make. So I you know all of us you and I are both and there was many of educators and in garden coaches and people who are trying to inspire new gardeners to stay gardens forever. So I'm hoping that opportunity allows me to share what I'm doing the things that succeed the things that go wrong. I'll be very open about all of it and then learn what. I can about gardening in Hendersonville in my particular yard this year. And we'll make some adjustments next year so I am you know. I've been gardening. Forty years to be able to still be as excited about gardening. Forty years into a hobby is just to me It makes it a very unique cobby. Don't you think and we'll also give people the heads up that you've been doing these really fun which I've been coming to. Instagram lives on Fridays. And sometimes at other times Friday afternoons and you're at NC tomato man on instagram. And you people can like ask you questions the new show us how you're doing things and what stage the plants are out and I mean they can just chime in and say what do I do about this. How do I stay that? What so? Let's talk about some of the things I mean I think in Raleigh you grew in Straw bales and in growing bags that were set on the surface of your very famous driveway. Your driveway driveways right. Yes and where? Where are you growing tomatoes and other things now? Are you growing in daggs in bales? Are you growing in the ground? What are you doing now? So we're we have about a quarter of nacre backyard that is quite sunny and but we have our septic field back there so one of the things I did not rush into is getting a shovel and digging up the soil I learned a lot about container gardening. Straw Bale gardening but will focus mostly in container gardening. And we'll definitely growing. I garden for years and years and years traditional garden. And so you never really forget about that experience. But it's it's a work in progress because I've got. Let's see twenty nine plants planted but another seventy or eighty that needs to get in there and they will probably go into ten gallon. Containers grow bags. You know. Maybe some going container. So it's you're catching me where it's a work in progress and figuring out day by day as I go along. What's the worst thing you ever did to a tomato may? Maybe the worst thing that ever did to to a tomato when it still rewarded me is we do seedling. Sales in the spring and all gardeners have lots of things that you don't sell. Don't get given away get forgotten. They just sit there so I had some sun goals that were at least two months past sales type they were. They were a foot and a half tall of just a stem with maybe a few leaves coming off it and they even. They didn't look very good. So I'd find those and thinking. Oh I've got space for another son Gold and they just bury. It is deep as I can and it leaves out in it produces delicious son go so I guess. The moral of the story is tomatoes. Tough gardeners I think in general especially new gardeners really. Don't WanNa make mistakes and we tend to maybe over care for and baby are plants. And I've learned through the years that tomatoes really do respond well to some tough love along the way. There's very few things that actually will kill them and make them disappear. Some of those things have teeth and But yeah they're very forgiving and You know we'll probably talk through some tips in this in this chat we have about what do you do? What are the things to do to help build in quality from the Front? And what are the things you do over the course of a season to ward off really sad stories and just put a smile on your face at the end of the season. Because you've you've succeeded you've got what you want. You've got delicious tomatoes and on the table in jars in the Freezer. So you just talked about that stretched out spindly overgrown overdue transplant of the Sun. Gold and how you can really deep also up north. We haven't planted because it's been snowing and stuff and even in a lot of other places people quite a bit to the south halfway between you and me or more people have had some frosts recently. It's been really nutty so not to worry. If you haven't planted yet folks I have a friend who even here up north one year. He was so busy with work assignments. He didn't plant tomatoes till July fourth weekend and he had the best rocky ever had but one of the things with an overgrown planners Finley plant like you said is planet really deep because they can make those adventitious roots off the stem right. There are plant. That can do that. So they can. Really root in Super deep not suffocating. It right absolutely and I actually also plant eggplant peppers deeply a As a few friends of call me I tend to be a bit of a rule breaker and yes. I read books and I read blogs but then I kind of put my thinking cap on and I think why can't I try this? And it has helped me to develop some new variations on techniques through the year and You know succeed more often than not. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA plant deep. I plant even a normal six inch. Kind of a seedling. Stout small seedling. That's maybe six weeks or so growing. Muno that I might have grown myself. I plant them deep. Do you take off the lower leaves. Do you create a splash like barrier to get prevents fungal spores from the soil from getting up onto that plant. Like what's your sort of I. How do I put it in the ground? And what am I thinking about? When I'm transplanting? So great question and it's a it's a really wonderful thing for beginners to consider as well because You may you may be looking to garden area. That's been gardened a long time he may be looking at something that you're just digging for the first time yourself. You may have a container. I think it's really good right from the start Your stand we're kind of soil you've got so is it. Does it dream? Is You if you dig a hole in? It rains that rain still there the next day or do you dig a hole in it. Rains and the water gone in five seconds. That tells you if you're to sandy during too quickly you're not retaining water so those roots are always going to be searching or if you've just got so much So much of a barrier to drainage that your roots are literally going to drown the plants. GonNa look like it's dry because it's wilting. But it's actually drowning because it's not getting oxygen so working organic matter and soil and maybe sending the sample off to an extension service just to get an idea if your three main trans n. p. k. nitrogen phosphorus potassium are in good balance At that point on you just dig a nice like you said Various much as the stem as you can or if you dig deep you can dig. How're you can dig diagonal and kind of been the plant in? Berry that stem because of photo tropism the plant grow up right. It may stick out of the ground bent but it will go right up toward the sun. It's almost like a trench and the two thirds of the stem is below. The root ball is at one end. Say at the left and then the most and sort of been the upper part in the upper couples. That's up and then you fill in that trench and your tomato will again. Can you say it will grow up
How I Built Resilience
"Hey welcome back to how. I built this resilience edition so we just heard from some industrial. Who actually started her. Culinary career at Chez Panisse in Berkeley and. Her Mentor was none other than Alice. Waters Alice daughter Fanny Singer. Join me to talk about how shape unease is doing during the crisis and how we can keep local farmers and business by buying straight from the source Finney. I know that you are sheltering place that your mom right now in Berkeley of all. How are you guys doing? How are you holding up? It's it's sort of strange very surreal. Moment I live in San Francisco and I do still have apartment there. But you know it's a one bedroom apartment and my partner and I are together. We both were working at home. And there's no outdoor space than being in Berkeley was not just to be with my mom who I obviously concerned about to. Just because I wanted to fee `sort sort of insane person about disinfecting nail and all the things in a little bit more German centric than my mother so these things were these work concerns of mine but also I mean to be Berkeley in a place that has really rich outdoor environmental NGO to walk through one hundred thirty seven pad this in the hills of the Berkeley into just feel to walk for ten. Miles is like the only thing I think kind of keeping me from total insanity. Alice tell us a little bit about. What's going on with Chez Panisse right now? Obviously you've been closed for five. Maybe six weeks. What's going on with the staff right now. We really paid the step their time off so that when it comes time to reopen that they would be there and available we had the good luck to get a kind of bridge loan from some wonderful friends of the restaurant that are helping us get to the point where money comes from the government to pay people. Some are on unemployment and some are being paid a portion of their salaries. But it's really important to me that people are paid at this time. If I have to ask my friends I have my friends Alice. One of the things I read about which is super cool. is that Obviously you work with a lot of small farmers all over California and a lot of these farmers presumably. I mean they supply restaurants so first of all from your conversations with with farmers that you work with you supply your restaurant and other restaurants. I mean what is their situation like I mean? How long can they go like this without having restaurants to supply? It's very serious. What's going on with our whole organic farm community because they really have a only the farmers markets to bring food to and the number of people that are going to farmers markets is not what it usually is so. We're trying to figure out how to buy that food from the farmers and we have a project in Stockton California The mayor of Stockton is very enthusiastic about getting or Ganic Food in the public school system and serve at this moment in time. He asked if we could help buy food from the farmers said that he can give an stockton and I thought that that would be a perfect way for us to begin building that network that we're going to need for the public schools and were putting little recipes into the box so that people know how to make very simple dishes and may given at least four thousand pounds of food away in Stockton Alice. I I mean you've talked about this for years that when you were a little girl. Your parents had a victory garden at home in New Jersey and that you really are encouraging people to plant their own. Things actually inspired me so much. I've got some ceilings. Here can you see some big lettuce there? You go and I'M GONNA hopefully. That'll be lettuce in a couple of months. I mean I don't have a big backyard. I have a small space and got a planter but for people who don't have a backyard who might live in an apartment I mean what are some ways that people can think about growing their own food that keeps looking at Brown Finley and he started by chanting food out in front of his house? In that little parkway between the sidewalk and the street and it caused a lot of controversy and he actually cited for violating. Some ordinance got any went to court. He wanted his case and he actually has planted that whole strip of land. So sort of thinking about him. I did the same thing I cup. That little plop right in front of my Bad I think you can plant like you have done and planter boxes on a balcony. I hope that the community gardens began to surge research and unite. My mom planted the little section. That's just in front of our house because even though we do have a garden in the back she wanted people to think about this victory garden moment and the potential for even the most throwaway pieces of land. It's now planted with a few different edible things and she's already gotten notes through our mailbox thanking her for taking this kind of actions embolic being encouraging people. And you've just seen this proliferation of gardens now in people's sort of little forgotten front yards and people sowing seeds all around the neighborhood now and way. It's really incredible. I've just never seen anything like it before you know. One of the things that you've talked about is the idea of buying local produce supporting local farmers wherever you are in the country around the world and you know one of the questions that that we're getting from folks on facebook Tuesday from Bell Zelezny also which what are ways that we can help. Small farmers are other ways of their places where we can go buy things from them especially farmers who are used to providing restaurants. I if you are at a loss for who you're farmers are do. The work researching call the pharmacy. Are you having trouble? Are you imperilled? Is there a way that I can help? You facilitate a network of deliveries. Can I help you deliver? But also it might be a question of just helping them figure out logistics or even knowing who they are. Where their farms are I mean? I have friends in. La The lines were so long that they weren't able to get any food so they just started figuring out who the farms were that they could drive out to so they could still got great produce. And I mean it's been a little bit more problem solving and resourceful and also knowing that the farmers are maybe really good at growing vegetables. That don't necessarily know how to work. A whole distribution network. And if that's something that you have extra time for facility with like make the effort because they do need us
NASCAR reveals changes for short tracks
"There's a new short-track package in use this weekend. And for more on that here's them. Rn's Kyle rigging while a lot of attention this week at Phoenix. We'll be focused on the championship race. Being moved there and what teams can learn from this race. That will apply later this year. There's another change at Phoenix. A new short-track package debut in for the first time in twenty twenty Stewart Haas racing. Eric Merola is up for trying. Anything that will help. Make the short track racing better. I think it could make a lot of difference. I think it certainly could make the racing. Better I I. I feel like Nascar really achieved a pretty good package for the intermediates to where it's a lot more racy the car. The car's are closer together the competitions tighter and so now on the short-track count lost that. We had that with the two thousand eighteen package where the races were awesome. And we were you know. We're racing side by side and passing the lead and all that and then as we got more downforce The cars were more gripped up to the race track and and then it was a little bit more challenging to pass this year so I feel like the marriage of the two. Now we're having the high downforce high drag on the intermediates but then the low downforce on the short tracks is really going to be good For our season and for those short track races teammate. Kevin Harvick echoes those feelings and says this could help S. HR dramatically whether the tires changed a little bit since two thousand eighteen Very similar to what we had in two thousand eighteen. That was a great year for us at Stewart racing. And and you know for US. We have a different car even been. Finley had in two thousand eighteen with with the Mustang now. So you know there are everybody's got differences chevrolets got a new car Toyota's probably the only one that got that. Got The same car but you know there are enough changes. That's going to be different but I think with the lower downforce obviously with higher downforce. I don't I think it's pretty common knowledge at this point that everybody knew we needed a change on the short tracks for us. That's a good thing because I felt like short track program in our road for stuff was probably the report of what we had last year. So you know I think as as we go forward You know I think there's a lot of things that point to a lot of bright spots for us is that could be positive but like you say you never know until you get into it. But I think it's GonNa it's definitely going to create better racing. What we had last year. T. May in rookie. Contender sole customer is hoping the package makes the cars closer to what the extremity cars were like. Yeah me I'm looking forward to the short tracks. The changes that they made probably for the aero side of it is GonNa help the racing a lot from what it seems like from last year but at the same time. I mean it's still going to be a little bit new to me but It'll be closer to what the extremely cars were last year. So I think I'm really looking forward to that and seem you know what the short-track package is going to be like. I think it's it is something that could probably depth a little bit better to sentence probably gone meal. The more simple Kurt Busch breaks down. Why getting the racing right at short tracks is such a big deal. The easiest way for fans to digest it as at at the short tracks where we have less speed have hardly any downforce so the slower the track the more we're going to be sliding around the faster the track the more the cars are going to stick other than Daytona Talladega. That's different RESTRICTOR PLATE. Rules there so just think of it size of track the smaller the more they're going to be slip sliding around. Just it's GONNA keep us jumping around a lot and I love to see the same rule package work at all tracks but it just won't put on good show that we need to have the side by side is if the short-track package produces the desired effect. Phoenix race. Fan should be in for a treat. Come Sunday
What happens after you expose a Neo-Nazi recruiter?
"Brian Thorp is the Winnipeg free press reporter who outed Matthews. Who broke this story and who has continued to followed? Hello rife first of all you are in the documents in court. Tell me about that that definitely Caught me off guard a little bit After news broke the Patrick Matthews had been arrested in the united. I states all of these court documents sort of being released to the public quite detailed document and so it was going through them piece together. These stories when I was still you know back cure and Winnipeg and reading this affidavit from an undercover FBI agent that was used to secure a number of the rest for and and all of a sudden. It's quite clear they're talking talking about me and that Patrick Matthews while he was down in Georgia and was hanging out with other members of the base Plotting various various things he got onto the subject to me at least according to this UNDERCOVER FBI agent Claiming that you know I was essentially just an anti fascist activists not journalists. And what I'd done should carry the death penalty. What was your first thought? When you read that it was pretty unnerving Having said that it was was I guess somewhat expected there's been blow back from my reporting on this story. Certainly some threats come my way and obviously I was pretty sure sure that Mr Matthews wasn't pleased with me and what I write and so maybe now I'll get you to kind of follow up on all the reporting hoarding. You've done here. The last time we talked to. You was right after you had outed Patrick Matthews as a white supremacist recruiting for domestic terror organization. Essentially and then he vanished gnashed from Canada. What do we know about what happened right? After you outed him. Thinks these Court documents that have been coming out. we've really filled the gaps in terms of what Matthews is up to who he was with and And how he moved around in the aftermath of him Disappearance so if the I who says the two members of the base Drove more than six hundred miles from Maryland into Michigan to pick up Patrick Matthews after he illegally crossed into the United States after the Winnipeg free press exposed to at that point. They're moving around a lot At times at one point there is there holed. Hold up in a hotel in Maryland. Another point they're living in an apartment in Delaware at another period of time there down in Georgia at one of these paramilitary military training events called hate camps. So the certainly quite busy while Matthews and one of his co-accused Brian Lumley junior are living at this apartment and a and Newark Delaware. They're alleged to purchased A number of firearm parts and you have a constructed manufacturer to fully automatic assault rifle. They're also electric stock more than one thousand six hundred fifty rounds of ammunition to got their hands on some body armor and according to the FBI you know tracking these people with really some of the most sophisticated counterterrorism techniques at their disposal. They were plotting and number thing. One Point Matthews was involved attaching. A murder applaud down in Georgia To be perpetrated against it a married couple that they'd identified as Anti Fascist activist and also while in Delaware Matthews News and his co accused. Mister Finley Are alleged to have repeatedly discussed various violent attacks that they could carry out at the pro. Gun Rally in Richmond. Virginia that was held on the twentieth. How did the FBI and up infiltrating the skiing so they deployed a number number of different strategies They were accessing cellular location data recording telephone conversations you know tapping into encrypted chat rooms rooms. They were times trailing as the suspects in-person they did Searches of various properties. While no one was present then installed audio and video surveillance and down in Georgia. At least we also know that At least one undercover FBI agent directly infiltrated fool traded the organization. So he was there while they were plotting things around the Virginia rally earlier than that. What kinds of stuff did did he see the in person so the undercover FBI agent was privy And witness to plot for the murder plot in in Georgia. So what the if your agent learned with that Patrick Matthews and another Liked remember the base who was arrested in separate incident identified at this anti-fascist couple and begun making plans to Samsonite them. Essentially but the FBI agent says that within a month after Matthews goes back to Delaware is Co conspirator begins this hour on them and says that he thinks matthews is incompetent and carry out the crime with him though collectively all get arrested so they decided to exclude them from the plan but That then posed a problem because the carried out the crime without him he was aware way or of it and would be able to tie into it so a member of the base down in Georgia then comes to the conclusion. That what we're going to have to do is if we're GONNA have to murder mass us and then we can go on to carry out this double murder against this activist couple So in this bizarre twist Matthews now finds himself across tare of this murder plot that he helped patch. How close do we know that they got to carrying out any of these things? I mean we know that they were arrested before the rally were a lot of this stuff was planned all the things that they discuss. It doesn't seem like any of them. Were that close to coming to fruition. Well in terms of the Virginia junior rally I mean they did a mass. You know not only a fully automatic assault rifle but also a sniper rifle They had gone A bunch of different materials that they plan to use they had base prepare You know nine your body armor all of these things and then they were discussing. You know various obvious different attacks that they could do at one point matthews is talking about you know quote literally hunting people. Mr Lumley had thrown up the possibility of you know we need to find. Signed a police officer WHO's isolated. We can south and ate them. They'd also discussed the possibility of opening up fire on this crowd from multiple angles No clearly the FBI was concerned enough about this situation. Felt they're ramping up Does something enough that they moved in a few days. Prior to the scheduled rally the they play these people under arrest in terms of the the plot coming out of Georgia that one was planned very meticulously in a very indepth way over the course missive several months so it seemed At least according to these court documents that they were indeed gearing up to perpetrate this double murder to do we have any idea From the documents or even just from anything the FBI has put together how connected this cell was to the wider network of the base. And how tied together this organization actually so. It's definitely a decentralized organization previously tries to create you know these information nations silos but According to the documents There was a number of gathering to gatherings in Georgia and another one planned in a different state that didn't end taking place Over the course of Matthew's time As he was illegally in the US At the one in Georgia I believe there's about twelve members members that arrive there so this would be you know it's several cells. It'd be converging in one location in order to train together and to build Camaraderie And in addition to this there also communicating in these encrypted chat rooms in order to establish connections amongst themselves so well it needs to be understood a decentralized organization and each individual cell has a fair amount of autonomy in terms of you know what they're going to carry out It's definitely certainly a a loose connection and certainly as we saw with Matthew. It's a network that has the ability to ferry You know someone who's subject the multiple national security investigations in Canada helped him escape to the US and then Successfully move him around about four different. US States and provide homeless safe harbor. Do we have any idea. What Matthew standing is there was in the organization as a whole You know when you met him I I guess he was. He was a recruiter but How was he regarded by the base in the United States? In general well there's some indication that At least sections of the membership looked up to him due to his military background and that he perhaps would have been trying to pass on. Some of his skills You know to other members of the network But it but it also seems like after his time of Georgia at least with the one. You know Munc- calm right down there who's WHO's Individual by the name of Mr Lane He certainly soured on him. And eventually you know as I mentioned came to the conclusion that Matthews was incompetent. You know what his current standing might be in the eyes of his fellow You know knew the base Kind of remains unclear at this point. Only tell me about when the FBI finally decided to move and arrest these guys they were taken into custody January sixteenth Matthews and Linley. My understanding is we're at their Delaware apartment the FBI begins to move in on them and as they realized that. They're about about to be busted matthews in Lear accused of smashing their cell phone then dumping them in the toilet and attempt to Destroy some evidence little little. Do they know this was being captured on. FBI Surveillance Video. One of the more disturbing things was that the FBI was able to get access to mount these personal computer and on their he had recorded a number of propaganda videos where he was effectively urging other neo Nazis to engage violent attacks in order to spark what he called older revolution for the white race in one of these videos. Matthews is wearing a gas mask. So it's a very striking image and And he's doing doing this. In order to try and conceal his identity and one of the the direct quotes that he says is something along the lines of derail some F. trains murder for some people poisoning water supplies. You better be ready to do this if you want the white race to survive. You're going to have to do your part. Jeez Jeez yeah it was. It was pretty unnerving stuff but having said that You know it fits with what we know from the about the base from my reporting and from the reporting from a couple of other You know journalist that that focus on this file which is that. This is an organization. That

Sky high expectations for Modi's second term
"Narendra Modi begins, his second term office this week after a landslide election win Justice sing discusses, what he must do to live up to the hopes of the armies of young people voted for him with Amy Kasmin. And Stephanie Finley we begin with the voice of one young supporter. The world should know that India has finally woken up. We are not sleeping anymore. And now we know what a right, who is the right person who is good for India. We don't think on communal basis anymore. We don't vote on the basis of costs on the basis of religion now, we would for the wlob India for development we vote for India and not a particular party who has always ruled India like congress, Amy, the sheer scale of his victory has surprised many. What is your assessment of Mr. Moody's triumph? Look, I think the scale of Modi's victory is down to really multiple factors. First of all the opposition was really an utter disarray. I don't think the congress party has really truly recovered from the battering that it received in two thousand fourteen I think, in terms of leadership. They didn't have a very clear electoral strategy. They were completely destroyed. Other parties were factionalized. So the opposition did not offer any kind of convincing alternative to Mr. moody, on the other hand, you had the BJP, Mr. Modi's party, and then crew ably well, organized, highly tuned, and deeply resourced political machine. They had a great product and Mr. Modi, he's a charismatic strong leader highly conscious of his image. And then behind him. He had this incredible machine with all its resources, Mr. Modi's government over the last five years had started a lot of social welfare, schemes they estimate that two hundred and twenty million people benefited from one Mody government scheme or another, this included things like distribution of gas, cylinders to people who had previously been cooking, highly polluting, cow, patties, or would door charcoal. They opened. Rnc accounts for millions of people they delivered toilets or funding for people to build toilets. There was funding for building low cost housing. Other governments have also had a lot of schemes in the past, but these were probably delivered more efficiently. But then the BJP party machinery was absolutely astute in maintaining contact with all of those who benefited from any kind of government program, and then the party with its machinery, reminding people who delivered these benefits to them and overall, Mr. Modi, just really projecting himself as the confidence strong decisive, and really one and only leader for India against a weak and fragmented. An unconvincing position led to essentially a massive landslide that we've seen really a historic verdict the first time in decades that any leader has. Two consecutive single party majorities on their own. Stephanie, you were at the BJP headquarters on the day election results came out. Did you get a sense that people's expectations from Mr. moody will be even higher this time? So the mood was just euphoric at the headquarters thousands of people had come they were dancing playing music, and they were thrilled to be part of what they saw as a historic moment for mister Mody. And also for India in there is Mr. moody, Ken deliver what the congress has failed to deliver in India for so many years, and many people repeated the line to me that it's only Mr. Mody that can take India from developing to developed country. Most young people were very confident that Mr. Modi could deliver on his promise to create jobs, and they said that Mr. moody gave them the motivation to get. Job, not necessarily that he would create government jobs for them. But they did expect that Mr. Mody would create a booming business environment that would take India into the future and them along with it. So Amy huge expectations. Tell us water the key challenges before him, the astonishing thing really about this election. What came as a surprise to many as the fact that in two thousand fourteen Mr. Mody had campaigned on a promise of reviving economic growth, creating millions of new jobs to absorb the young people in the workplace. In fact, Modi's track record on the economy is pretty patchy. And right now, there is actually a lot that needs to be dealt with India's economic growth is slowing down in the last quarter for which we have the data. It was six point six percent. There are some people who think the next quarter could be even slower that some growth may come in under six percent. So growth is really full touring and growth is critical because it's with growth that you get jobs, which are so badly needed. There's also serious issues in the financial sector these things called non banking financial companies. They're not really banks. But they provide a lot of consumer credit, which is driving demand and keeping growth going, but many of them are very, very shaky. One is already collapsed, if others collapsed, it will have an impact on the banking system because around five percent of all Bank lending is to these nonbank financial companies. The government's finances are also not in very great shape. The government wants to try to step up spending to try to revive growth. But in fact, they don't really have the fiscal space to do so tax collections of come in, well below expectations, and their plans for accelerated growth will be hard to meet given the level of tax collection. So there's a lot of stored up trouble. Meanwhile, private companies haven't really been investing in the Indian economy either throughout the whole term of the Modi government, and the banking system also has still weighed down with heavy non-performing loans. The question is really, what is the Modi government planning to do about these problems, because we haven't seen any clear indications of how they plan to tackle these issues how much they feel the urgency of the situation, Mr. Modi's foreign policy is considered one of the main achievements of his previous tenure, what are the issues confronting Mr. moody on foreign policy, and trade fronts, Mr. Modena's reached out to leaders across the globe. He's tried to avoid taking sides in some of the rifts that have arisen in the international system. Particularly rising tensions with the US and China. He's reached out to. Chinese president Xi Jinping. He's reached out to Trump. He's reached out to Japan's Shinzo obey. His tried to indicate India's willingness to be friends with everyone. I think I see a few challenges ahead, though, under Trump. America is really forcing countries into hard choices. For example, India has traditionally good relations with Iran, but the US has pressured India and other countries to stop all their energy purchases from Iran, because the US wants to put the squeeze in Iran. The US for longtime been rather tolerant of some of India's economic policies that make it tough for American companies to do business in India, and are seen as favoring Indian companies in the past, the US was willing to tolerate some of that from India because they thought India's a democracy. We want to encourage India to rise and grow strong economically so that it can serve. Some kind of regional counterweight to China, but under Trump, it seems like trade is everything and Trump will be more concerned about a twenty billion dollar trade imbalance with India than the long term, strategic interests of a stronger India. So the US is putting a lot of pressure on India. And this is a kind of a friction point, and generally, I think India is going to find the US is pressuring India to take sides and it's likely to get tough with India, Hindu nationalist vision of India has often clashed with secularism enshrined in India's constitution often during the campaigning heard that the election, this time was about the soul of India. Do you see any serious threat to India's diversity, this time around the idea that defined the first years of India in the decades after its independence, really as are related by Mahatma gone? Bundy and then his political heir job, Lal Nehru was that India was by its nature, a diverse pluralistic, multifaith society. The state was to be secular in the sense of not having a religious identity and not preferring. One community over another alongside that idea husband, another idea championed by the RSS formed in one thousand nine hundred five that India is primarily a Hindu country, it is clear that the BJP has been heavily influenced by this second ideology. In fact, the BJP was formed by the RSS to promote these ideas and carry this message into the political sphere. The election campaign, had a lot of costal anti-muslim overtones for many in the BJP one of the. Mandates for the BJP who's been elected to the parliament is someone who has actually been criminally charged with involvement of a bombing of a Muslim burial grounds where at least six people, including a young child were killed many were quite shocked that the BJP would put up such a person who still awaiting formal trial in connection with this case in the wake of his landslide reelection victory. Mr. moody did make a speech where he talked about. We want to win over the trust of minorities of this country. We want to govern for all, but I think given the divisiveness of the campaign while Mr. Modena's clearly made the right noise. You know, these conciliatory comments about winning Muslims trust, I think it will take more than one speech to reassure minorities, that they will be protected, and I think that it will be the actions. Finally that will speak louder. Than a few words. That was Justice. Sing took it to Amy Kasmin how South Asia bureau chief, Stephanie Finley, South Asia. Correspondent in Delhi?

The political cost of Pakistan's IMF loan
"Pakistan, says it has reached an agreement with the IMF on a six billion dollar loan justna sing discusses, what forced Imran Khan to seek help despite promising not to do so. And while the political cost is likely to be for his government for Stephanie, Finley and four hundred. Kareem Rasheed, Dr shave the TV new safe gooky held is. Assan IMF beyond Johnny was Stephanie. What are the terms and conditions of the six billion dollars package? That Pakistan is due to get from the International Monetary Fund. Do we know the details, yet, we don't know exactly, the agreement is still to be finalized, we expect that to happen in a couple of months, but we expect it will address Pakistan's gaping, current account deficit removed costly, energy subsidies and allow the rupee to float more freely is already fallen over twenty percent in the last year. But there are estimates that it may devalue another twenty percent and people are calling this one of the toughest IMF programs that Pakistan has seen because these reforms are expected to be introduced swiftly which will make it very hard for the average Pakistani who will have to cope with a rise in energy costs and a much weaker rupee Baucus on had already secured nine point two billion dollars in bilateral loans from countries such as Saudi Arabia UAE, an. China. Why did it have to go to the IMF, Pakistan thought that they could weather the storm when I was in his Lama Baden March? The government had said guests, they were in talks with the I m f but previously, they thought that they could get bilateral funding and sort of sort, the situation out by acting their own reforms, it became clear that, that wasn't enough. It wasn't enough money to address their obligations and Pakistan also needed the vote of confidence from the IMF that could unlock other funding and attract investors foot on Imran Khan had once declared he would rather die than beg to IMF waters. His government been telling the people of Pakistan now about the latest deal before the elections about a year ago, Imran Khan ran his political campaign promising to never go to the IMF for another loan. Now, this is something which has opponents are using against him because he's. Endeared words taken a u-turn completely gone back on his promise. So it's not an easy situation politically for the prime minister to handle, because it's a matter of record. There are video clips where he stood surrounded by thousands of people in political rallies, and promised, never to go to the I'm and today. He's doing exactly that because it's a very difficult economic situation in which he has no other options in the first eight months, nine months of his government. He tried to avoid going to the IMF tried to get loans from friendly countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE and China, but that has not been sufficient to restore what looks like very weak economic confidence. But halves the weakest in Pakistan's entire history. Ben. Ben just cook on the thought per up ninja member countries. Jauregui economic difficulty Maho on KOMO cut or up Cooper type John seldom see Pakistan economic situation. You high here. Did he facto finance minister, who's an advisor to the prime minister of the shake said, on record that Pakistan's economic situation of today has been fueled by policy failures under the previous government of former prime minister nervous Sharieff, so he talks about how Pakistan's exports crashed how Pakistan's previous government recklessly took foreign loans, and how they spent far beyond the topology of the Pakistanis feet to service. These loans to pay back these loans and future. Kluber bought a billion dollar Saul Kiara eighty to get so inches. Oh, good dictator, who? How might passed SE capacity eighty gam- buzzer? The hood cheesemakers take basically that was unavoidable. I'm John up. He has a point but I'm afraid such points. Don't really make a difference when it comes to public sentiment, and that is where the opposition is now going to try to fight it battle, what has the reaction been like in Pakistan has there been any reaction? Yet, the opposition has now confirmed that they're looking to St. agitation in the next few weeks, or a couple of months, the central point, the core point in the agitation campaign would be inflation across the country, as a consequence of Imran, Khan's agreement for the IMF, the only one point on which the government may have an advantage is that in the middle of Pakistan's scorching sun. But how many people would be discouraged from coming out on the streets? But we have to see we have to see how trends unfold in the coming months. Stephanie, how closely is the international community watching the situation in Pakistan? What are their main concerns if any the international community wants to see Pakistan, get serious about its economic reforms? It's not good for the region, if they are unstable and they really are putting on pressure for them to tackle terrorists operating on their soil in February. There was a terrorist attack in India, which put renewed pressure on Pakistan to tackle extremist groups, within its borders, which are threat, not only to region, but to Pakistan itself, Pakistan has a country of one hundred million people in a fast growing region, but Pakistan, has for so long squandered its potential. So the hope is now that this package could finally get. It back on the right track. This is now we can say the thirteenth package since the eighties. The IMF says it's the twenty first package since Pakistan joined the IMF, we've seen this before and Pakistan hasn't had a good history of concluding these programs or sticking to the reforms that it needs to people are hoping that this case will be different. People are cautiously optimistic watching and waiting to see if the government has the strength to carry out the reforms.
Modi plays Hindu nationalism card to seek re-election
"Election has turned into an ideological battle pitting an inclusive vision of a multifaith nation against the view, the Hindu should have primacy. Justin sing discusses the tactics. Used by prime minister, Narendra Modi and his opponents with Amy Kazman and Stephanie Finley. Nine the band. Police some of John Lear he DACA gig it out on a here. Niane to Don downtown. Why you are. Thank you cut it out. I turn on a. Yeah. League in Wadsworth. Go again in the sun. Are your go go to med goose multi? Somebody's at speak. And the political temperature is adding to the intense heat prime minister, Narendra Modi has been crisscrossing the country giving fiery speeches and so as mR Modi's main rival Rahul Gandhi, the president of the opposition congress party, Amy, it's long and staggered election. But Mr. Modi is a tireless campaigner, what are the main issues? He has been raising at his rallies for prime minister Narendra Modi. This has been mainly an election focused on national security in his first prime ministerial election campaign in twenty fourteen he'd been very very focused on the economy, and he talked a lot about how he was going to accelerate economic growth and get a lot of jobs created to absorb young people trying to get into the workforce. But as economic track record has actually been really patchy. So it's not a very strong ground for him to campaign on but the showdown with Pakistan in February in response to a terror attack in Kashmir that. All India law missiles to an alleged terror training camp in Pakistan, really switched the tone nature of the campaign and diverted public attention away from 'economics to issues of national security, so Mody and the BJP have essentially been campaigning tirelessly on this idea that India is under threat that it faces grave external and even internal threats and that Mody is the strong leader that Indian needs to cope with these threats. These threats include the threat of terrorism from Pakistan. They include the threat of illegal immigration from India's neighbour Bangladesh. And then there is this insinuation that. India is also under threat from internal enemies ranging from India's Muslim minority to secular leftists and Naxalites and that old together the nation needs a strong leader to handle these challenges and threats and that Mody. Who is very much seen as a strong strongman is the leader that India needs to handle these challenges. Congress bodies talk campaigners around Gandhi and his sister Priyanka how does their campaign compared to Mr. Modi's, and what are their main arguments? Modena's definitely an absolutely relentless and tireless campaigner he's a natural campaigner one gets the feeling he probably really enjoys giving these speeches in front of these huge adoring cheering crowds. I'm not sure that Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the congress or a sister Priyanka who's been drafted in as a star campaigner share that love of campaigning that the prime minister has they have struggled. I think to find traction with voters they were on a strong ground in December. When there was a lot of focus on the poor performance of the economy rural distress. And I think their campaign strategy gotta be able to knock after the showdown with Pakistan and the conversation turned away from. The domestic economic issues, but they have been trying to focus on domestic economic issues. Modi's alleged mismanagement of the economy rural distress they've unveiled the scheme that is supposed to see seventy two thousand rupees given to every poor household a kind of a minimum income guarantee scheme that is intended to lift the poorest of the poor out of poverty. So they've been trying to focus on the economy and bring voter attention back away from these kind of ideals of nationalism and some threat to the very real issues of their own pocket books. The best care. Wrong, glenn. He has also been trying to really smear Modi's image with a lot of allegations that he's a thief in connection with a controversial arms deal. We don't know. Which of these issues has really found traction with the voters was the congress able to bring voters back away from the idea of we need a strong leader to defend us against these various enemies. There was real dissatisfaction with Mody on the ground among many voters who had voted for him in two thousand fourteen they were unhappy with his economic performance, and they were inclined to you. I think vote against him. At least some what we don't know. What will only be clear on may twenty third on vote. Counting day is which way they finally went rallies are just one way to reach out to voters. There are also colorful posters multimedia advertisements. And song videos to make a strong push. But social media has emerged as a new factor in these elections, Stephanie how political parties using social media, and what are the factors driving up? It's using this campaign. So in two thousand fourteen prime minister Modi had already emerged as the king of social media in India. And from that time his party has been laying the groundwork for a sophisticated political propaganda machine using social media, mostly using what's up and speaking to party officials. They've said that they want to target every voter over what's app, and it's with very specific messaging speaking to one former data analyst of the party, he said that voters are targeted based on class based on caste based on demographic information based on past voting history. So what we have here is a very big very targeted. And very coordinated campaign from the ruling party and the opposition party. Just doesn't have the resources, and they haven't been able to keep up.
