The people from crete really see themselves as being a little bit different to the people from the greek mainland anesthesia. When you think of the pride of crete people and the traditions. How does that survive in their dress. In the way the look when we travel there you can find that still worn by older people in the largest cities bad. You find it definitely in out in the country and in small villages and the further up you go on the mountains the more you find that and you have this. Very particular scoff.

They have brown trousers. That up. The very distinct and to create and usually black boots and i was struck when i went to crete that these traditions survive more there than elsewhere in europe. I mean everything's becoming modern in the same issue travel around more and more but increased. You do find those traditions alive David i was an increase just last june and having been there for a while i was wondering with ride. See some of these things like the old britches and the long boots and the the coach but to my great surprise they have not disappeared in fact they've now become trendy and symbols for the young symbols for the young.

They have a long hike along the river with little places to swim along the way they reach a very very narrow part in the gorge where you can almost stretch your arms out and touch either of the sheer cliffs and then at the bottom you have a beautiful remote beach and boat waiting to take you to the next town from where you catch the shuttle bus back to your home. Base is still basically the routine that is still the routine la. They have come up with an alternative for the lazy person who does not want to do the whole walk. You can take a boat to.

No one's going to go against their incentives. That's not human nature. So i i think that there's always you know there's they can be lots of parties to kind of take blame but i think end of the day.

He said that the country's future is at stake and called on all Libyan's to continue to work towards a lasting ceasefire.

The business lvmh proposed to acquire November of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, no longer exists. What remains is a mis manage business with no end to its problems insight and it just gets worse from there dom now. Alleges there was a material adverse effect here it says that the pandemic created extraordinary damage to tiffany and this is important. There was no carve out in the deal agreement for pandemic. Now, the core of the complaint is really that tiffany has been mismanaged. It says that tiffany paid dividends when it shouldn't have that it cut marketing and s GNA expenses that will actually cost future. Sales and said that luxury companies in the US have a bleak future saying that ninety percent of Tiffany's sales are brick and mortar stores. You don't WanNa be that kind of retail right now and eighty percent of those brick and mortar stores that typically has our shopping malls.

Before whether they reach a deal at a lower price, a lot's going to happen in the next couple of months before that trial.
Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong
"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.

"We are going to discuss the situation in Libya so a few weeks ago, we had written about the one thousand Russian mercenaries that had arrived in country there, and the presence. Presence of unmarked MiG fighters, so I wanted to have Tony. Maybe you can set the stage for us. It's a very complicated battlespace that is emerging there with alliances that are very fluid, and what is really become a showcase or a testbed for a war of the future. So why don't you set up the security situation for us? And then we'll dig in and and talk about how the aircraft there are being used. Vive semis up. Pretty Fatty. That Jen. This harks back to the Arab spring, and the and the impact of that event across the Middle East and North Africa and also the fall of Colonel Gadhafi, and since then we've had this. On and off civil war, but now sort of developed into essentially two major sides who got the Libyan national? Army controlled by lethal halftime who made significant gains from his base in Benghazi sweeping across the country, and then we have the government of National Accord, which is a U N backed government which which? Controls Tripoli for a long time. Half ta basic swept across, took control of most of the oilfields on a much control of Libya, but then in recent months we've seen a resurgence of the genie's power, mainly, because it's backed by Turkish took a lot of effort into this campaign, and they've been fighting back, and we've seen sort of the GNA taking control of fields and towns across the area so particularly in the western half of the country the Libyan National Army Khalifa's army. has the backing of countries like the United. I M, Ritz Egypt and of course strain Russia, so it was sort of seeing this strange war. Complicated woman different sides. Some countries are undecided about which side to take. Which side is going to win. It's caught up in cobweb of mercenary groups and. Now introducing high levels of technology we're seeing. UAV's being used these Russian aircraft advance, Ground Base, defense systems, and also mercenary troops, being used in different ways and being bought in from different parts of of the Middle East to come and fight there. It's just it's become a little bit like Syria, but not quite the haphazard situation that has developed the. Brandon. Where is the US in this equation? A good question. It's The the best answer right now is that it's complicated. ostensibly the US does support the GNA because that is the internationally recognized UN backed. Government but It's important to remember that general huff. Tar is a creature of the United States in a sense He did spend eighteen years here in northern Virginia It said that he was working with the federal government for most of that time, if not all of that time and improving their understanding of events in North Africa during the latter years of the Gadhafi regime. So you know there have been a formal discussions between president. President, trump and half tar. They've actually spoken to one another there has there has been some limited at least diplomatic cooperation, but the US has stopped short of endorsing the as legitimate governments over the DNA so one more way Tony kind of had alluded to it a to it already one more way in which this is at all levels diplomatic, military, strategic, a very very fluid, dynamic, strange, complicated situation. That's unfolding there in Libya. Let's talk a little bit about the MiGs. We started to see satellite imagery of Russian aircraft landing on an airbase Dan. Can you bring us up to speed and give some detail about how they arrived in what happened to them after they came in? Yeah, so this is a the great. The great mystery of the conflict right now so in mid May satellite imagery showed that a MiG twenty nine had appeared at L. Giuffra. Airbase in central Libya and anyone that has access to the Internet can quickly find out. That Libya doesn't have MiG twenty nine fulcrum. So, where did this come from remarkably? Remarkably there had been some which essentially called rent a rumor intelligence, and the previous day's out MiG twenty nine, transiting from Russia to Syria, and then they just of stopped, and then a couple of days later. Oh, there it is! There's the MiG twenty nine in Libya and so people have been trying to piece I back, you know. Where did these come from? Who supplied them? And eventually on Africans in the US confirmed that they were rushing that they came from Russia, they flew through Iran and Syria and onwards syllabi. They went it. Was You know they say fourteen MiG twenty nine s you twenty fours. The mixture that is up for debate. There's been at least six twenty nine seen in Syria at the same time there was allegedly transiting. Their markings are painted over so these. Are you know I'm I'm going to be the first one to steal fray. Sorry guys the. Little Green jets. I got there first. So these. Are you know? Plausible deniability, whose are they really you know the most likely operated by Russians some people say that they're Belarusian. But they're almost certainly not. Unless secret training program kicks a long time to train foale. Gen fighter. These are not pilots in there. Almost certainly not Arab pilots in general. They were meant to tip the balance, but we haven't really seen them in action much so far. So what have you seen with them? Since and I understand, there are also some issue twenty fours in the region. Yeah so Brennan and I were talking about this. There's only been one confirmed action. They were used they hit a GNA convoy. Just recently that was transiting. Run the Oil Crescent, but mostly they seem to be kind of flying over top of their their bases, and they're just being held in reserve, almost a most satellite imagery of a Alqadi. That has the twenty fours in shelters. They haven't left. They arrived. They went into the shelters and everytime. Imagery passes over there, so they're not seeing not gone flying mission they just it was like a morale boost, and then they've stopped because I'm assuming losing one of the so soon into the conflict would probably be a PR move than when they arrived.
Both sides in Libya conflict agree need for lasting ceasefire: UN negotiator
"The UN negotiator leading talks to secure an end to fighting in Libya said on Tuesday that officials from both parties parties to the conflict have agreed on the need for a permanent and lasting ceasefire to replace an uncertain truce. The parties are meeting in Geneva of months of conflict around Tripoli between between the UN recognized at government of National Accord or GNA and these self-styled Libyan national army or Ellena which laid siege to the capital last April at a press conference Augustan Salami Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General said that both sides had accepted the principle of truth in January but it has not been respected. Did Mr Saleh may also warned that an international arms embargo has been broken incessantly since the UN Security Council agreed to it in twenty eleven with evidence of increasing thing find interference. We have evidence of new equipments but also new fighters non Libyan fighters joining the two camps champs. Therefore we believe that the arms embargo is being violated by both parties. And I also hope that those were exporting.

News in Brief 23 April 2019
"This is the news in brief from the United Nations nearly three weeks since fighting began in the Libyan capital Tripoli, the U N health agency want on Tuesday that large numbers of people are sheltering in medical clinics, while civilians continue to be killed or injured and refugees and migrants remain trapped in detention centers in an update to journalists spokesperson targes Revich from the World Health Organization or WHO said that two hundred sixty four people had died so far in clashes between the UN recognized government of national accord or GNA and the Libyan national army Ellena, including twenty one civilians echoing those fears above our Bella from UNHCR, the UN refugee agency appealed for humanitarian access to thousands of refugees and migrants believe trapped in state run detention centers, south of the capital. Our concern is for some six thousand who still remain in detention inside some of the detention locations. But also the. Major concern is for about three thousand six hundred refugees that are currently trapped in some of the detention center, which are very close where the fighting is taking place now in the past two weeks UNHCR has moved five hundred and forty one vulnerable refugees from the detention centers of are Casablanca Garcia IB Salim and genzer to a safe location in central Tripoli to the DRC now or Democratic Republic of the Congo where the World Health Organization or WTO says it has been forced to suspend some Ebola related activities following the killing of a N epidemiologist in Battambang last Friday, according to the U N health agency, the body of Dr Richard Valerie, Mizuko Kibben, a father of four will be flown back to Cameroon on Wednesday.

We Could Resurrect the Woolly Mammoth. Here's How.
"Is there a possibility that we could actually recreate a woolly mammoth the last time woolly mammoths were around was almost thirty thousand years ago could DNA our GNA knowledge at this point recreate that woolly mammoth in modern times. It's a very real possibility. And recently, it was found that there were a muscle cells in a Willie, man. Are found in permafrost with surprising frequency sometimes pretty badly. Deteriorated sometimes in better, shape, and muscle cells. From one of these not long ago was processed for their nuclei nuclei were inserted into the old. Of of mice believe it or not and there was biological activity. Detect it down to the DNA wasn't sufficiently good to create a pliable embryo, but we're we're getting close to that. And if there were better preserved specimen, we might be able to do that. But as you know, we're cloning dogs and cats and also polo ponies interestingly with great success, and and pretty routinely these days, it's not cheap. But it's eminently doable. And the other clones seem to be completely normal normal longevity and do fine. Now one thing that we should bring up just for discussion say that you, and I have discussed in in emails is the possibility of resurrecting clones of. Humans from times past and so that in theory, we could sign viable cells from some of the founding fathers of the United States or eminent scientists or people like General, Omar, Bradley and create clones identical twins of them. So tell me this is there any I'll frame it a different way. Ordinarily, people would say we shouldn't do that. I'm going to ask you this way. Is there any good reason why we shouldn't bring back and recreate a willy mammoth? I mean, even even if it's just for science, although I have a feeling on pay per view and into large zoo. It would probably be a commercial success. I don't see any any ethical reason or safety reason whatsoever. I think it would be an interesting experiment. We learn a lot more about the ancient history of this interesting animal whose habitat used to include most of North America, but between the end of the ice age and a humans hunting the beast for for their bones and tusks became extinct. Is there any way to know when we would you expect this to be done? I in an academic setting like a university or a laboratory somewhere or do you think private industry will take it on? I would expect that it would be done in an academic setting first. And then maybe the process or the. Where some of the early clones would be licensed to a a commercial enterprise that wanted to do it. And and to to us who do you expect to object to this idea? I I'm sure there's going to be somebody these days almost every ideas objected to no matter how good it is. Well, you can always depend on Peter to to a Jack to anything that's innovative that involves animals. I don't know that bio emphasis would get involved in this bio emphasis are often a problem in advancing human experimentation. But I don't think they would be involved in animal work like this there as you say, there are always a few a few cranks a few for ethical or pseudo ethical reasons to work, but I I can't identify groups right now, see I think the PD people could be dependent on. Object to this. But I I love the idea. I mean, the idea that you could take an animal that that didn't exist after about twenty eight thousand years ago and created today. I mean, it would be a real curiosity. But I'm sure the objection of some people would be well, but then somebody would own it. Well, an awful lot of animals are owned by people right now down again, the only group to really object to that would be Peter. But can you imagine what you might learn from that animal if you could and how let me get jumped to this while we got time. How accurate would the recreation be because what they're talking about doing is taking some the cell nuclei and putting it into the egg cells of mice. So there would be some of the woolly mammoth DNA, but would you have to combine it with some other animal DNA today to recreate the animal, and would you end up with something that truly could be said to be a, you know, like an original Willie, ma'am. You wouldn't have to use DNA from another animal, the the mice sales would be nucleated. So the patina would be calling from them. But of course in reality. You wouldn't do it in my cell? If you were trying to really direct the animal, you're probably to it in elephant cells elephant Ota, and then you'd have to find a a surrogate mother that were an elephant correlative, the woolly mammoth and that with coach through its station, and and and they're the the infant so that that's the way that it would be done, and it would be in under those circumstances. I an identical clone. Boy, that's a mazing because because and can you imagine the, you know, the the kind of public interest you'd have in that. Now, let me go for just a moment to my crazy idea the one where I want to see somebody genetically engineer a let's say a giraffe that doesn't get any bigger in its body than a great, Dane. So it always stays that size or say a rhino that doesn't get any bigger than say, a Basset hound doc is that is that possible today because I have a feeling if you did that there would be it'd probably be rich people who'd be able to afford them at least initially. But you've you, and I I think of already talked about mice that glow in the dark and things like that is a possible to to to engineer those kinds of animals. Well, you can certainly get miniatures of a lot of things. They tend to be multi Janik traits though to tendon on a lot of jeans, and so that's very difficult to do. But you know, I'd seen Australian shepherd mini Mini's that are about eighteen or twenty towns. It's quite amazing. So it's doable by conventional techniques, just by selection. You select you take the smallest of the litter and mate that with a small list of another litter and you keep getting smaller and

"To recycle. But, but they're like, for example, milk, and you can to recycle one you can make twenty five you milk, jugs and and environmentally. It's worse. So so does it make sense to actually do it that way? I mean, I I can imagine this. If you were to put a milk jug out there and say, this is a recycled milk jug, and we're adding a dollar a gallon to your gallon of milk or you can buy the one the virgin milk jug that was made from brand new plastic, and it was not recycled, and that one's a dollar cheaper. How do you suppose that little experiment would go at the grocery store? Well, people are so brainwashed. And on the other council numbers that I deal with. I've tried to say look at all this spend. We're small county we spend. Hundreds of thousands a year subsidizing the big garbage companies who make billions of dollars. And and I said, this is a make any sense for us. It's it's totally nonsensical and lease it. Well, we can't stop recycling. We got why not? Why not I mean at some point at some point if something doesn't make sense economically. You can choose to do it. Anyway, and say, well, I want to do it this way because I feel better about myself. Well, feeling better about yourself only goes so far, and and and and if you actually allowed people to make the economic choice, and there's the the example, I gave the milk jug that has the recycled milk jug for a dollar a gallon more. So instead of paying six bucks a gallon. You're going to pay seven bucks a gallon. I have a feeling that the vast majority of Americans say, I'm not gonna do it. And if they're not gonna do it on the local level or in the immediate level where they can see the cost and actually choose to pay it. If people want to do that if they don't want to do it. I don't see forcing them to do it. It doesn't make any economic sense. And I appreciate your insights on that. By the way. Let me talk to Andy in Idaho. A Andy you you had a concern about yesterday's Twitter poll. Welcome to the program, by the way. Taking my phone call. Yeah. Yesterday was all about the drugs, or whatever I think they should have. They should be able to make their own money. So I believe that they did have the path in on it. Right. So he didn't break. Yeah. Should they break? About a week ago. You said on the voting poll with the plea DNA. You believe they should keep a DNA total and they say on that. Well, me tell you. They're they're gonna make it a lot easier technologically for every police department when they book somebody on to be able to keep GNA. They now keep your fingerprints to identify you. They keep a photograph of you to identify you. They'll take a physical description. How tall you are much way. Other identifying March what's wrong real quickly because we're going to come after the break. What's wrong with keeping the DNA that absolutely identifies? You. And that point not my opinion, if you haven't been a crime they. What if you've only been arrested right now people who are arrested have their photograph and their fingerprints on their physical description taken what's wrong with keeping one more piece of identifying data. It would also allow you to sort out people who are not involved in crime, Andy that was the argument I made because I looked at it and said you already have the police collecting information about people who have only been arrested and never been convicted.

And that's why we initially got involved because of the Lindner family, Craig and Francis Lindner. You know, put this facility together, and it's phenomenal. I mean, it's phenomenal. And being able to have this party to raise money for their center is amazing. Know I rarely go to the Super Bowl game. I'm usually in the city all week, but to come back to this event is worth it. So I've been Atlanta for most of the week in a couple of weeks. I'll be back in time for the for the touchdown for hope that Sunday night and big screen TV's will have food and you're talking to the roses skyline. Montgomery and UDF ice cream on the good stuff here locally. But. And it's fun. We get a lot a great crowd and get a chance to like I said to raise money for this great facility. And that's why I do it again. I live in Mason. So this facility is not far from where I live not only knowing that this mental facility is there. But knowing some families that have had loved ones go through this facility, and it's and it's been phenomenal for recovery and for for the issue of mental health, and that's why I've gotten involved in it. There's a lot as you know, we all live here. And there's a lot of great causes a lot of great organizations that do wonderful things. But this is one thing that like I said I've been doing I've been doing since the beginning ten years ago, and we'll continue to do as long as they want us back to the facility help you. If you've got family member kids, parents, you know, folks like that that are going through mental issues. That's where they go and rehabilitation that sort of thing. Yeah. It's the mental health research center there. One of the nation's leading mental health treatment research centers. I mean, not just in this city, but nationally, and that's what makes it so special is that you know, families here and families across the country can benefit from from the Lindner center of hope so. Again. I don't know as much as I should about the mental health issue. But I know that it's big for serious. And when we have here in our backyard. This this center. We're doing what we can to support it and raise money to to continue this into an asset not only in this community, but nationally. Ios our guests at Anthony. How can you get tickets for this? Well, you can go to lender center of hope dot org or you can call five one three five three six hope that's five one three five three six h e and you can get information. It's gonna be a great event. I mean, I it's like I said the food LaRosa skyline. Montgomery, and you d f I mean, what more do you need? Does it go all day how it's actually at nighttime? But I mean, what time is it starting the afternoon before reception starts like at five and got goes on through the game. I mean, they'll have couches. They're like I said, it's in the FOX sport club there at the great American ballpark, and it's very comfortable. I mean, it's like sitting there with three or four hundred of your friends watching the the Super Bowl game. And you wear sports. I usually I usually bring out my either my Joe Nemeth or my John unites wool jersey because you know, where your. Long-sleeve? And you know, he's a kid. You know, you're one of those specialized guys I was alignment, but I played quarterback from eight years old eighth grade. I was a quarterback. The best. School in the coach says, what are you doing here? I said I'm gonna be your quarterback. He says no he says you're going to line up. You're gonna put your hand on the grind first of all you need to change your your face masks, right? Six. Few minutes, maybe a day. Then I realized this is kind of fun. You get to hit people not not obviously a much different scale than this. But a similar experience happened to me. So in high school, I I returned kickoffs. Right. Got record X so good and I at Notre Dame, and it's like, our we're going to practice practice kickoff return. And I started going back there. You're on the front line. Attention the football anymore. I know I know what you're going through who was your team growing up. Well, it's interesting. I was baseball fan. I wanted to be a senior as playing baseball. Yeah. I was a pitcher. So one Maher show the giants going up forty minutes from Dodger Stadium then as a third baseman. So Brooks Robinson who since fans know, quite quite well, yeah. But at the age of ten I played flag football like I said, but at the age of ten I became an NFL fan so quarterbacks Bill Nelson in Cleveland, then he Dawson with the chief Roman Gabriel. So all of a sudden I fell in love with the Kansas City Chiefs. I knew their starting lineup offensive defensive and I followed them when I start at ten years old. So I became a chief fan I became a football fan in the NFL. But I really watch the chiefs because of Lenny Dawson, well, so you have grown up in Callie wasn't the Rams or raiders. I watched the Rams I watched the raiders, of course, when I started playing offense line. I mean, the raiders Costa Rams had Charlie count and Tom Mack and Jochen belly. I mean all their offensive lineman. But then of course, the raiders I mean, we're the raiders Upshaw. Art shell me. Henry Lawrence showed up art. Shell was my guy. You know, when I started playing offensive line big number seventy eight left tackle for the raiders. So I I watched it all watch the Rams. I'd watch him go up to Minnesota and play in on subzero temperatures in that outdoor stadium. And so yeah, I watched him quite a bit was that targeted. And then or who was actually it was Joe cap cap. Joe kapp? Yeah. So it was in those days were the purple people eater. You know, Carl Eller Jim Marshall and all those guys. Pretty good. Where's your money on on this Sunday for these two games? What I'm guessing chiefs heart is with you know, I know it's it's tough to bed against if I was a betting, man. I don't think I would bet any money against the patriots that I'm not going to bet. So I'm just going to choose. But. I guess I'm hoping that the chiefs can get to the Super Bowl. And course at my age. I'm rooting for guys you root for guys in that. At least the teams, and and there's a guy that you'll know right away. There's a left tackle for the Rams. It is a heck of a guy. We had him here for ten years. And there's nothing more that I wanna see than Andrew Whitworth getting to the Super Bowl. So I'd like to see a chiefs ram Super Bowl. That would be a fun one is funny. I put out a poll question last week for the the Bengals next coach is going to be sacked Taylor with the Rams. I said, well, you know, what would you rather have fans? Would you rather have the Rams lose? And then we get Zack Taylor a week earlier. Or would you rather see big wit when his first playoff game in eight tries, and there's like twelve hundred something people voted overwhelmingly, it was the people. Fans wanted to see whit when when a playoff game, I thought that was pretty cool that is club right on social media. Go ahead and win the Super Bowl and then come back and sign here and retired. But you're right. I mean, it's been long enough. What's another two weeks? You know, have Andrew Whitworth experience that you know, what a great guy. I'm sure you you've gotten a gnome when he was here. But not only an excellent football players still playing extremely well. Still plan on the highest level. Right. Just a phenomenal individuals. So yeah, I'd like to see that rematch of that Monday night. You'll get it was a little bit of offense over under over under one hundred twenty five or so. Defensive guy that night. There was like oh my God. This is too much now and you played even before me before offense was allowed things had delivery, would you? Well, your mind there. You know, we talk everybody mentions the points. I mean, the the million point. But defensively they were responsible for a lot of points. Three defensive score. You see for an offensive guy. I liked that. I liked it through a lot of offense. But then the defense wasn't totally not there. Right. There were some defense on playing that game. So I just think you know, any of the any two of the four that are left. I think it'll be great. But I I really wanna see that Kansas City. Chiefs LA ranch the right Anthony, thanks for coming in man. One more time your event coming up on Super Bowl Sunday. Yeah. Lindner center of hope dot org and go there and find out about the touchdown for hope Super Bowl party. And it is a party a lot of great food. It'd be at the Fox Sports club. Great American ballpark little different. You know, you haven't in a baseball stadium. But. Club. And there's going to be a lot of food. We hope to get quite a few people there. You know, if you hear this, and you buy a ticket come on buying let me know that you know, you had a chance to listen to to rocky Nettie myself chat a little bit about this event, you go so yeah, thanks guys for having me on. I appreciate our pleasure. But he always Anthony.
