"We hit five million US cases yesterday for some perspective. The first nineteen case in the United States is believed to have occurred on February six. We hit one million cases on April Twenty, eight, eighty, two days later. It then took just forty three days to hit the two million mark on June tenth. We hit the three million mark on July seven that was twenty seven days later then just sixteen days later we rich four million US cases and July twenty third and again it took us just sixteen days to hit this five million reported case number right here in the United States joining me now is Dr Tom ingles beans, the director of the Center for Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Dr Ingles. Be Welcome back to meet the press. WanNa get a little big picture here. You know last week you were you put out a lengthy list of ten recommendations. You guys didn't call it a reset, but sort of like how do we get control of this virus? Now another one of your sort of colleagues in the larger sense Michael Star home is an op Ed. He's basically calling for a reset of some sort New York Times today editorial page calling this. It feels though as public health officials are all calling for some sort of reset. Partial. lockdowns things like this and yet we are not having that conversation at all on the political side of things. Are, are we doomed to sort of live with this virus now if we're not GONNA at all look at your recommendations I DON'T THINK WE'RE DOOMED To this fate I? Think we we know what to do. Other countries have done it. I think the purpose of these resetting reports these for a kind of a reestablishment of the basics. Is that we know that another country's universal masking fiscal, distancing, avoiding large gatherings. Those kinds of things have worked. If we look at countries like Italy and Spain and France, they have a total of about seven or eight deaths today and we have thousand, but it's not magic what they did. We know what they did. So I think if we act together in national unison, we can get there and that's what the purpose of these many of these reports are I want to bring up the issue of masks there've been some people that said if we had ninety five percent compliance unmask wearing, we could get rid of we could sort of get this fires under control. Is that unrealistic and we do need to do more than just mandating masks Do. Not, alone. Not by themselves or alone the solution, but they are a critical part of it. We know that physical distancing makes a big difference. We know that large gatherings are places where super spreading events occur and people have the opportunity or the virus has the opportunity to get around quickly and for. Many people at once. So we have to do a number of things together in terms of you know simple things like diagnostic testing results coming back much more quickly. It's it's unacceptable for the country to have to have testing comeback a week or even two weeks later it's not useful at that point there's no point even doing the test. So a number of that we have to do, but they're not they're not complicated they may be hard, but we have to do them kind of in unison. And all of those, they're not hard except when you when the word politics gets involved, it makes everything a little bit harder and I wanNa keep you out of the political space here. Let me ask you a question about that scenes and to sort of set expectations doctor Fauci implied that the first vaccine that we get, he hopes it's seventy five percent effective. The FDA has said they will approve any vaccine that's at least fifty percent effective. Can you explain to the public what that means what it means and what it doesn't mean and what our expectations should be for the first vaccine Well, we know that many of the vaccines that we use are not perfect. They don't prevent every case of disease but if they prevent a substantial portion of disease than that can help us get to a point where most of us are protected, the disease can spread quickly between people anymore a concept that is called her immunity. Herd immunity doesn't mean we will won't disease anymore. It means it's not gonNA efficiently as efficiently spread in an epidemic form. and. Is there a percentage figure in your mind that you think will sort of give us a huge? Huge step in the right direction is at a vaccine that is at seventy five percent or does fifty percent do you fear that could be a false sense of hope. I think we would take fifty percent because it's fifty percent is a lot better than what we have. Now we've we've no tools to no no vaccine tools or medicine tools that we can use to slow this down. So fifty percent would be would be far better than what we have. Now of course I think we all want something that is seventy, five, eighty, five. Ninety percent effective. But we'll have to see what we get and I think for the amount of time has passed since the beginning of this pandemic to have a vaccine that's even fifty percent effective in in the coming months or the beginning of twenty twenty, one would be phenomenal. But again, we hope it's better but fifty percent would be better than what we have now. Tom ingles be from Johns, Hopkins One of our experts that we have on here regularly, really appreciate you coming on and sharing your expertise with us. Sir.

Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?
"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.

From France, meanwhile, new fourteen day restrictions have been imposed on Belgium, and you're and the Bahamas Katie as what would have it. You'll joining us from Paris. How likely is it? Do you think that you will be told to isolate when you return? My Luck's GonNa depend depending how the next few days go as it was interesting is clearly Francis the country where we've had corona virus infection levels are going up. I'm not just saying this because I like to go home and not have to self quarantine for two weeks, but it is not such a jump as we have seen in places like Spain. It could. He is the wrong direction, it's going in is high. High priority for the government to keep track of because if they were to miss something, they thought they needed a quarantine. It could actually have quite large effect just because of the number of British tourists who do tend to go to France. But also for that same reason I think while we have seen and we saw Spain the government is quite happy to make these decisions and just take the hit is interesting. Chance. This at this morning where he was saying, we will not hesitate of personally think that is quite like the Sweet Vegas and government that most air purchase at perhaps not in place by the end of the month. But I think this is going to be a graduating the data as it goes.
beirut explosion latest news
"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.
Patrick Mouratoglou and Andrea Leand
"Everyone John Worth I'm here is this with sports illustrated tennis podcast. Sweet. We have two guests, I. We talk with Patrick Rata Glue who of course wears many hats in tennis keeps the Tennis Miller's busy. He's a broadcaster he's a coach. He's a promoter Today we talked to him in two capacities. We talk about the the ultimate tennis showdown that he ran over the past several weeks. This was an attempt by Patrick to speed up tennis, make it faster younger draw a new audience. We talk about what worked what didn't we spoke with him in June and he invited us sort of wouldn't he said we'll do a reassessment when we're done and see what we did well, and what we need to work on, and so we took him up on that so. A conversation about the UTSA ultimate showdown, and then we talk about Serena. Williams. Patrick of course has coached Serena for almost a decade now, and we talk about where she is what she'll need to do to Win that elusive twenty-fourth major He is about to leave niece for Lexington Kentucky from the south of France to the land, of Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul but Patrick. is going to meet up with Serena and couture in Lexington on her way to the US. Open to we talk a lot about Serena Williams how she's handling pressure, which he needs to do differently if she were to get to the final and her sort of general disposition during during the Cova crisis. So good conversation that we talked with Andrea Leeann Andras a former top fifteen player. A commentator she also wants did a brief stint as an agent She was at the Greenbrier for the final of World Team Tennessee other day she was sitting courtside. So we talk a bit about tennis and a bit about what the US Open is going to look like under this sort of quasi bubble configuration. So good to good conversation sort of looking back but also looking forward. So let's get started in the south of France with Patrick. So we spoke a few months ago before. Before your events began and we said we would we would check in and you were open to suggestion and you sort of you wanted to hear how this went. So you you tell me first. Grade yourself what what work well. Most of it. I to to see the reality of something you've you've imagined is is amazing. It's an incredible feeling. And it was it was really impressive to see those those great champions play. As. I mean something that was difficult to imagine like play formats. So different from tennis. The accepting to be in such in this comfort zone at the start because it's very different it's very stressful. Is Very difficult in terms of physical because you don't have a lot of time between the much less so he can't recover well. You're so much more stress. To see them go through all that. In a completely new environment All the things that go is the software we had to give up this machine we had to develop for the JEREM buyers day so. I mean. The whole feeling for me was just incredible. To be completely honest, you you you sound to me like you you've written a screenplay and then you've you've actually seen it performed as as a movie. Perfect who put it What did you think first of all, what what did you think of the level play I mean this this was a different environment for the players. They were also coming off along break. What did you think of quality of Tennessee? I think at the start of Utsa one level was really so-so. After a few weekends decided to play well. the one birds for example, who on your gs? One I think is level the first two weekends was wow. Was Far from very far and then. He took off and then he started to play a some of his best tennis I think. Why he won and the level of I think for UTA. Finals. Men and women I. Think the level was really good. I think it was very good tennis. That's I really enjoyed so much watching.

"france" Discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast
"And another thing you're want to see. Is the Britain parliament building and like I said Brennan kind of the. Of Brittany, and so this parliament building originally had a little bit more autonomy than it does now now. It's really part of France, but they still do some court cases here it's it's basically a court of Appeals. The architecture that's there is beautiful. Especially, the grown Sean Code they have paintings and tapestries in there. It's all Gold Leaf. I believe the large chamber the grand. Okay Exactly! So, much better in French like anything harder to spell, but sound so much better. Yes, thank you. You'll have to stop me. I'm a French teacher to and so when I pronounce things I. Don't know I have to say the French pronunciation. Enjoying your French education, I am sure it is better than mine so. So the parliament actually has an interesting history too because. Before he talked about how it it used to be the court and have a bigger role, but in nineteen ninety four, there was actually a fire, and it was caused unfortunately by some protests from the fishermen. And they had come to Ren, and there were some fireworks. Some flares and something was accidentally lodged in the roof, and nobody noticed it for a few hours, and so by the time the fire alarm sounded men. They realized that it was indeed a fire, and not a false alarm. Most of the building was destroyed. But they did a great job of rebuilding it and looking at it today, you would never guess that that that had happened got you were able to tour the building? It's just open to the public. You are able to tour. We did a guided tour and I would definitely recommend that I think it does need to be a guided tour Oklahoma go through security, and then they need to know who's in the building and everything so. Fishermen exactly. N during the summer they have a special light and music show that actually takes place outside and in front of the building. There's a big square. It's late at night I. Think it was eleven o'clock at night partly because the sun seems to set a little bit later, so of course, it needs to be dark for the show. And they. Projected lights and projected kind of like a movie, but it was made to merge the parliament building, so you would see like children climbing the buildings, or like the windows opening, and it was a very very cool experience like I said every night. It's free I would definitely recommend seeing that. And, then if you are interested in history, the Brittany, museum and Cultural Center has an interesting museum that has some archaeological pieces, some traditional clothing and information about basically the history of Britney..
"france" Discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast
"Today, the amateur traveler talks about walled towns and standing stones, beaches, and folk festivals, pirates, and you boats as we go to Brittany in France. Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris? Christensen. Let's talk about Britney. I'd like to welcome to the show Kristen Montgomery from growing global citizens dot com who come to talk to us about the region of France known as Brittany Kristin welcome to the show. Thanks Chris and I want to say the Duchy of Brittany, but that's really not the term anymore so. It's definitely part of France officially where we talking about. So Britney is located in north western France, and as you said, it used to be a duchy, but in the fifteen hundreds it was incorporated as part of France basically taken over a against their will, so there's still a very strong regional identity. There are some people that still identify as being brought tone before their French slump. And why should someone go to Britney? Britney is a place that is not usually on lots of travelers lists. Obviously, if you're going to head to France, you think of Peres you think of southern France provence or niece, but there are a lot of really great things to see in Britannia, Britney there are beautiful beaches first of all, and it's actually sand beaches, unlike the rocky beaches that you find down south. It's a great place for a multi generational trip. So if you're traveling with family, it would be an excellent place to visit because it's a little bit less touristy, less crowded. There are more things to do that are in small towns out in the country. And it has this Celtic identity like I said the the Britain identity that really is not found in any other place in France, and so you're going to be hearing things like bagpipes for music. You're going to be seeing traditional dancing, even some of the Breton, language. and. I found that people here were really very very friendly. which is something that I hate to say, but sometimes and other parts of France especially, you think of Paris. They don't really have the reputation of being very friendly, but people here really took the time to be able to chat. And if you're someone that likes history or is into myths and legend Brittany has a lot of that, too. Excellent. What Are you going to recommend for us? So I would recommend starting in Ren, ren is in the eastern part of Brittany. And you can fly in, or you can take the train. The TJ evade <hes> from Paris. It's about an hour and forty five minutes. There are international flights into rent from other places in Europe, but I don't think there are any from the US or from north. America directly. If you're looking for a place, that would have more connections. That would be a bigger city. You can also fly into note, which is farther south and not officially right now is no longer part of Brittany in the administrative region, but it was part of that she. And there is a quite a bit to see there, too. So I won't talk about that today, but that's another option if you want more connections. And, so for the itinerary <hes> like I said you're going to start in Rin and then most of the things to see our along the coast, so you're basically going to do a clockwise circle, and you can go all the way around following the coast and then get back to ren okay. Excellent we'll let's jump in a little more detail. What are we going to Iran before we head to the coast? Okay so. Is the cultural capital of Brittany to university town, and it's really easy to get around. I will mention that you're gonNA. WanNa rent a car to be able to do this. Because there are a lot of small towns that you're going to want to be able to go in and out of. But when you're in rent itself, you don't need a car. They actually have a great metro and it's the smallest city in France to have metro. And this one is driverless also so it goes both underground and above ground, and it was really clean and safe and efficient, so that was that was something that I didn't really expect, but it was a very pleasant surprise. So, Ren is known for its half timber houses, which is funny, because that really I think we're on the other end of France over and. Also as lorraine or something like that when I see the half timber houses, yes, exactly <hes> that part of France and then Germany to places where you usually think of those, but it's very much native to the architecture here and I believe it's done in a slightly different way, but I'm not positive about that, but the half timber houses are usually the first level is stone, and then on top of that they're usually three or four other levels that have these big pieces of wood, and then they're deaf clan of plaster or mud in between them. When they're all different colors, and so when you see them all together for example, plastic undone. It's a big square where you can see this architecture and Ren, and some of these are incredibly old. They're dating from the fifteenth to Seventeenth Century. All the way back in the Middle Ages incredibly old by American standards is an exactly. Yes, thank you. Yes. It's all relative actually in Renton. They're kind of pockets of these and the reason. There aren't more is because like many other places. There was a big fire in seventeen twenty, and so many of them were destroyed, and so part of the town has this much older architecture and part of the town has more modern architecture. And another thing you're want to see. Is the Britain parliament building and like I said Brennan kind of the. Of Brittany, and so this parliament building originally had a little bit more autonomy than it does now now. It's really part of France, but they still do some court cases here it's it's basically a court of Appeals. The architecture that's there is beautiful. Especially, the grown Sean Code they have paintings and tapestries in there. It's all <hes> Gold Leaf. I believe the

Jess I was so excited for the day when somebody would say ten front fashion, Guy, Is Your. Family's proud now or do you still fight against that I? It was hard to I Yeah I'm spoken openly about a a moment. where it looked like they were, they might be disowned me. Very after the show came out. Because stocks to reach that home and my hometown is very racist, actually and so people were saying really horrible things. To them on the street and so. There was a time when I thought okay. I might not have anymore. It will on that. We were about to board. A flight to Australia professed press. I saw a message with my family. Saying we can't cope with this anymore. We don't know we can see you anymore. And so Antony and I acted very close I. Love all the boys, but engineer Salah. And Him, and I had. This arrogant, but it's just the way life is a Basque us.

People are raised by more people more than their parents and necessarily so tan. France says he wanted to read this piece for a surprising reason. The reason I wanted to read this essay a role I was born to play with is actually because it goes against the role. I truly believe I'm bought to play it. It talks about a man who feels like he's destined to not have children and being on call and that was something I thought might be my destiny when I was a kid lead over the last twenty years or so ever since I hit my teens I was determined that that wasn't going to be my lot in life and that's not to denigrate.
