Flying During a Pandemic
"Were you traveling from. Where were you going and when did your little adventure take place. Yeah this is one of those that i like to describe as to fly or not to fly. That was my question. And i had the opportunity to not opportunities. Probably the wrong word Isn't doing well. My mother lives in florida. And i had the Decision to make. Do i see her. And do i see her now. And you know. Possibly this. Be the last time that i that i see her. And so it's a really really tough decision. Part of my The decision process was actually. If i go how to travel and travel safely and not keep safe but keep her safe as well and An awful lot of thought went into that so this was not a spur of the moment. Hey let's get on an airplane of fi like nor would have done the. That's that's the kind of decision that i think. Many people have been forced to make in these times. Where you especially with elder parents where you you really want to see them. You're you're uncertain if the last time you saw them. We'll be in fact the last time you see them And and it's a. It's a tough decision. But i guess everybody's got to make their own determination based on their circumstances and You know a lot of different factors. I think so Yeah i think that this had made it especially tough because the of numbers here in the us are in and doing this trip. Wild numbers are going in. The wrong direction was was difficult choice Her condition was a m- fortunately or unfortunately i had separate doctors appointments one. My annual physical with my regular gp and then. I had a an appointment with my dermatologist. I asked both of them i said. Hey what about what. What are your thoughts on travel. And both of them said that you probably have a greater chance of getting covid. Nineteen grocery store the new airplane and after and i'm sure we'll talk about my experiences on the airplane. It probably agree with them I probably felt less safe in the airport. Dolph than i did on the airplane so that was really interesting and the other thing that made me feel a little bit better about the. My gp is Is married actor who has actes in michigan. And he does monday through thursday michigan for his practice so he flies home for the weekend and he's been did every week and the outbreak here in the us. And she said what he does is whereas ninety five mask and puts it on when he gets in the short and doesn't take it off till he gets out of the airport and doesn't have anything to eat or drink along the way and the worst face and he feels very say in doing so with those in words I choice of of going to fly. And that's exactly what. I did on my three chips as well by the way but i put on ninety five before i to the airport didn't eat or drink anything. The entire period of time while in the terminal or on the airplane. I totally agree with you. I mean the terminal is just scary. Sometimes i mean some of them are empty. Some of them are massively crowded. And i agree. The airplane felt like the the safest part of the whole trip. How about at the airport Brian did you encounter a busy airport with lots of people. Where they wearing masks and social distancing. What did you find so at the airport. Saiful out of lax and i- pearly chose a mid day flight so departure around one pm in the airport itself was fairly empty There was one person in front of me. Tsa and again part of part of the experience As i think the time listeners know i've i've traveled an awful and i basically forgot how to travel so was very embarrassed. Me a in packing. It was just weird packing again So there are stuff that i forgot. Everything would normally put in my suitcase that released when i get to the tsa owner driver slice. Don't have to hand them the ticket and so it's nice having that added convenience for the tsa pre which which i belong with. But you haven't forgot. I just felt discombobulated the trip But the airplane counters were fairly empty. The airport itself was was fairly empty. i'm a member of the united club. So because i got to the airport a little bit early because i didn't know how long you would be Went to the club and that was really deserted as well. They're probably be ten people in the club and instead of having the normal buffet. They had a bunch of prepackaged foods. Dansk the the bartender for the the food or snack items. They could care less how much you got. I think they were actually kind of excited to talk to to someone

"So now the wise people w wise he'ii have a $20 smart watch. You. Would You tell that story again? This looks like I mean, I'm not a wouldn't. I bought it in an apple Watch once for Barry. That's the only time I ever bought one of these things. I don't know. I never really quite understood how they were. I love my apple. Watch their great so this This is the smart home company on this is their first foray into smart, wearable technology technology.

See, here's the thing with Cove in One of the first signs that we've been seeing throughout the whole pandemic is what people's blood oxygen levels have dropped below. You know what we're supposed to be, which is in the nineties? And so yeah, And so that was one of the first signs that people saw even people who felt totally healthy where their blood oxygen levels were well below where they should have been, and so wearing this mama's watch Yeah, it's a number one wearing this Wise watch will actually help monitor that.

Eventually, they said that they're going to connect it to other products so you can use the wise watch to control your smart light bulbs and other things
NASA & SpaceX Testing Safer ‘Green’ Rocket Fuel In Space Mission
"In the year since launch gp im has successfully proven that a never before used propellant and its propulsion system. F- are practical options for future missions. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shaped our future while all rocket fuels can be dangerous to handle without the proper safety precautions. The fuel being tested on nasa's green propellant. Infusion mission is easier and safer to store the innovative chemical. Propellant requires fewer handling restrictions compared to the toxic hydrazine. Currently being used to fuel rocket's propellant has a higher density more of it can be stored in containers of the same volume. The fuel also delivers higher thrust and does not require heater power to prevent freezing throughout the mission researchers have conducted orbital maneuvers to demonstrate the propellants performance and the effectiveness of the tanks valves and thrusters used to deliver the fuel and ask the mission nears completion. Gpa im has demonstrated that this propellant can be used for anything from small cubesats to full-size rockets all while being safer for workers on the ground and increasing gas mileage after launch
The Utah Monolith Has VANISHED
"An update on the monolith. You know the monolith the silver column that was discovered in the middle of a deserted cove in utah by government officials last week. Well i despite the state of utah not wanting to say exactly where it was that amateur hikers when an injure themselves trying to get to it the internet was of course able to locate it and some folks used earth historical imaging data to determine that the monolith has apparently been there since at least two thousand fifteen or sixteen. The monolith was located near the filming sites for several movies and tv shows including westworld indiana jones. The last crusade and one hundred twenty seven hours so the going theory now is that it was some type of prop at one point or may be placed there by a crew member for who knows what reason and specifically said was located because it's gone just completely vanished. Here's what utah's bureau of land management said. In a statement quote we have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure referred to as the monolith has been removed from bureau of land management or blm public lands by an unknown party. The blm did not remove the structure which is considered private property. We do not investigate crimes involving private property which are handled by the local sheriff's office the structure has received international national attention and we received reports that a person or group removed it on the evening of november twenty seventh and quotes according to the associated press. Several parties including the salt lake tribune have against the department of public. Safety's wishes traveled to the site and verified that it is indeed gone quoting the ap spencer owen of salt lake. City's said he saw the monolith. Friday afternoon encamped in the region overnight but as he hiked to the area again on saturday people passing them on the trail warned him. It was gone. The tribune reported when he arrived at the spot. All that was left was a triangular piece of metal covering a triangular shaped hole in the rocks ricardo marino and his girlfriend zero van meter were traveling from colorado to california on friday and decided to stop and see the object after finding the gps coordinates online on the way they passed a long bed truck with a large object in the back and he said he joked. Oh look there's the utah monolith right there. When they arrived at the spot it was gone and quotes. So maybe it was in that truck in an instagram post marino. Alleges that in the monoliths place was an inappropriate message. Written in the dirt and quote a fresh piece dane according to the guardian ever since it disappeared visitors have been stacking rocks in its place. I don't know if we'll ever know what happened to it why it was there who took it. Maybe it'll pop up on ebay soon. What a strange strange story
Nvidia's Graphics Cards Drive Growth
"Let's talk about invidia guys and video. In the news this is a huge story. from venturebeat and the headline is and videos. Q3 revenues rise fifty seven percent to four point seven three billion as gaming and data center. Stay strong huge numbers And a huge sort of just increase in revenue given the size of invidious business. Right this is not like a small startup that has grown fifty seven percent The article goes on and talks about earnings per share and things like that But basically the thrust of it is gaming and their new. gp's used their new graphics. Cards drove much of this growth. That basically they're they can't keep anything in stock they continue to be out of stock This surprising for anyone. This story is i. it's quite pod like they're bigger than intel right now from a market cap. I was staggered by like normally when you see fifty seven percent growth. It's like three million dollars face or like this is like a billion dollar base at. It's you know what stunned me about. This story is not that their business had improved. Because obviously there are a lot of factors that would lead you to think they would have another strong quarter. It's that it had capacity to improve this much right like i. i would have told you that. A billion dollars the business. It would like there. Wasn't this much headroom to add to this. But i think it does show look one is interesting. That data centers are a piece of this results. Right we can't say this is entirely gaming driven so we do call up fundamentally. I think it's next generation cards and consumer adaptiveness in this environment. Like it's unbelievable how much that's proven to be corporate results. I just unbelievable to me. Lindsay are you. Are you surprised at all. I mean i don. I don't know how much you followed the hardware market or has anyone been trying to buy an nvidia graphics card over the last like two months but in some ways the user experience has been very telling like in probably could have predicted the stock price increase. Yes so i'm invidia has actually been in the news as a chipmaker completely. Different reason in the policy world in a not so good ones are gonna glaze right over that i have to be the news good ball but no as someone who has been looking at graphics cards seeing that they're completely sold out everything and just the fact that the home pc market i think has grown since coronavirus i. It's not surprising at all in videos. The top dog and they also just acquired when someone starts with an a. Dna acquire the other chipmaker. This i think they were talking about buying arm. I don't know if the deal is done. Arm arm makes is like a cpu or chip architecture Which is interesting because the there may be. You know if nvidia gets into sort of the cpu market or at least like a total system on a chip kind of solution where you have cpu and gp one same silicon. That could be interesting like And especially also because apple is now producing laptops with their own arm based yet so it seems they can do no wrong and if you look at the stock price it seems like they can do no wrong. We're where does nvidia end up. William in your mind like two or three or five from now like even continue this kind of gross well it. It's a challenge. Because this is you know it's not partly it's just. It's just a cycle in the chip business. And you do well like when it's almost like there's console cycles and console sales spike in those years chip cycles so i do think it's. It's not like they're going to sustain this result. Quarter to quarter right like. It's not like this. There is gonna be a tail off. It's natural. I think navidi is even messaging that right now. Like hey guys you know. Don't don't expect results desist. But i do think that for nydia. The path forward is through something like the arm. Acquisition right like the way for them to sustain this level of growth and success is basically to position themselves as the like the v. computing company. That's it. They have to be a solution where they start looking at more integrated software solutions more like expand their category of products right and they have to really be entering across the hardware market and my prediction for sort of new video on the back of these results as they have the resources in the success. I expect you see them. Moving into other types of chips in development. And i wouldn't even be surprised to see to be moving into actual or some types of actual hardware production like beyond the what they do already. Yeah they do. They do but expand expanding that like expanding our hardware lights more

Pilot Holiday Gift Ideas: The iPad
"Why don't we. Why don't we start at the top end of the price range and and i say that You know we we. I'm looking at my list here. And i have about ten things on here and Probably the most expensive thing and probably in my opinion The the most useful thing that we have on on the list here is an ipad You know we talked about paper vs plastic on previous podcast on whether The the way to go as paper charts or plastic chair or or electronic flight bag if you will and Obviously we go with the f. b. Which is that's that's that's the wave of the future Pad is necessary so there are lots of different options with ipads memory size Cellular cellular versus non cellular. And what i will say about. That is If you are looking to purchase an ipad you definitely want to buy one with cellular capability and the reason is an ipad with cellular capability has a gps chip built into it and That way as you're using your ipad In the airplane you'll have your position your position will always be displayed now. You you don't have to activate the The cellular service on the ipad. So you're not. You're not having to pay a monthly subscription to that but you definitely want to buy an ipad. That has the cellular capability. And it's usually another hundred and thirty dollars extra for that particular ipad in so i think i was confused even early on. I'm kind of tech guy the the value of that additional chip you really instead of buying a third party external card that would provide that. Gps information you're getting that built into the ipad. So if i don't have a gps source by chance than the ipad will give it to me and you don't ever have to turn on the sailor services what you're saying correct that's exactly right. And and the occasional time where you might be at an airport that's may be out in the middle of nowhere and you don't have wifi capability You can very simply Get cellular service. You're going to pay for it. You're going to have to put a credit card in it. You may have to commit to twenty dollars for a given month but it's always nice to have that backup. I do activate the cellular service on my ipad And I i don't use it a whole lot because most of the time i am on wi fi but there are where you're out Somewhere and you don't have wifi available and you you'll want to file a flight plan or or or or or whatever Check the weather. It is nice to have that ability. But again you don't have to activate it so you don't have to pay the monthly fee. And as i'm sure varies by carrier. But i think mine's ten dollars device so if you turn it on its ten dollars you can turn it on and off pretty frequently if you wanna twos. Well you're just going to be hit with that ten dollar so maybe you don't fly much in the winter turn it off. Turn it on the summertime It's great so let's talk about size and size so screen size and memory size probably a personal preference thing. I wish the there was almost something in between the mini and the the eleven incher. Right eleven inches. Just a little too big for the board pad for me. Kinda thing the minis great. I have an old mini. It's time to upgrade my new to the newer mini for sure Because it's running slow. But i like many in the cockpit and i carry my larger ipad. My fly bag is a backup Any thoughts or suggestions there. Yeah i i it it's definitely personal preference though. The one thing that i do like about them many is It is it does mount easily on the oak In in our one seventy two it fits right between the two Handles actually and it fits really nice on the yoke I'm not a mount it type person. I usually just keep the ipad in my lap. I've i've never really used kneeboard. I most of the applicants that i gave check rides to use knee boards and they use them very effectively. It's it's just something that Forty years ago. When i was learning to fly it just wasn't a part of the The norm for people using the board so It's just something. I never really adapted to but my i have the eleven inch. Ipad pro I think the super-duper ipad the twelve point nine inch or whatever it is. I think it's just a little bit too too big too bulky I said i kind of wish. There was one between the mini and the eleven inch because maybe about an I don't know a tween ipad with would be would be nice You know. I i do find that. The older people like the bigger ones. The younger people liked the smaller ones. And that probably has something to do with the vision but You know are obviously able to pinch out to make make the the things bigger I would say the with. The ipad mini To me reading text Isn't as as you know. I don't like it near as much As i do in my eleven inch ipad so it is a personal preference and just keep in mind I think most people are not going to buy an ipad and and dedicated strictly to aviation. You're going to use it for other things. You're gonna find all kinds of other uses for it if you don't have an ipad already but It's a great device And as far as the other size. It's you know the the memory. How much memory you have on your ipad is is Is something to look at. And of course the more memory the more expensive so there are economics involved in this

College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games
How Tall Is Mount Everest REALLY?
"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world. Hey that's a great
Chinese and Korean Esports Player News
"Moving into some china and korean player news with charge making two signings. One kaley from billy billy The joe or notes the hong academy and then choice a one the eps from ellen mystic both getting picked up to round out the charges new eps. Line the little bit. We got to watch of choice so want. Pretty good yeah. I'm digging that for the charge. They just kind of wholesale off let go of a big chunk of their host of their us their roster. You know all of the English speaking players. I believe have been let go so We've got a little bit of news today about the way the going. So it's pretty safe to say that some of these asian Korean teams rob. Not picking up too much any talent because it looks like we're going to be doing the two regions split again so we've got atlanta rain signing pelican from Oh to blast I believe it was one of the ones that stuck out in the matches that we spoke that we watched. I mean both o- had really good dp s line improper and pelican but properous believed to young which is unfortunate. it is what it is pelican. I think a lot of people are agreeing is going to be like a pretty solid Dps pickup for him. Really can kind of play. Everything and hopefully will be utilized better than they utilize or who is also incredibly talented. Gps plant but they only played a minute weird spots. I don't do and completely disappeared there towards the end of the season then another bit of sad news. I think he'd only been out of retirement for like less than a season. And that's visibility. Yeah announced retirement. Maybe one season. I think it was just this contenders month. Basically he played from july sui a the very end of july and then he played about four months from july to november. After taking only only two months. So hit i mean he really does a very quick retirement Unfortunate to see. But i think this could be one of those like okay. Maybe i'll come back like knows right to return the first place now. He's probably out now. Like i think that this is the official okay. I'm i'm out. i'm done good now. Retirement so unfortunate to seize incredibly skilled player but if he didn't have a good performances last couple of months on the last couple of teams. It's not meant to be i guess. And then we've got the spark signing man laghi the leash the no. We'll go with each. I like that Tank coming over from the are yet shanghai dragons academy team team cc and then mc de coming over from element mystic issues like we still don't really know what's going on with former element mystic is. It's weird but i'm digging the m. c. d. pickup for the spark player too bad.
Retailers are turning to virtual storefronts this holiday season
"Shopping is big part of the holiday season. We go downtown or to a packed mall browse the store windows smell. The chestnuts roasting in the street. The pandemic has obviously changed all this but some retailers like gap ted baker and ralph. Lauren are trying to deliver that experience to our computers. I just clicked her. A virtual tour of ralph lauren's beverly hills store at the entrance. There's an archway decorated with christmas garlands and a marble fountain with mannequins posed in front of it. I think that that this dude is supposed to be riding a horse or something and there is a saddle next to him. Yeah a saddle. Part of the ranting. I guess. I don't think that it's for sale. And i tried to click on it. But now i ended up in another somewhere else. I don't know where i am. Now let me go back. Oh god okay. I talked about the virtual storefront experience with joe toro a professor at the university of pennsylvania and author of the book. The aisles have is the thing that's weird about it. One is that there's no one else in the store and two. There's no sales people so it's essentially a store after the rest of the world has been destroyed. And when you click on a particular marker next to the goods you see the price of the goods you can actually purchase it. We've seen the companies that make these virtual stores sell themselves during the pandemic as a way to get people in store despite the lockdown Do you think brands are hoping this will drive sales or is it. Just more of a pr move well everything. They're hoping we'll drive sales. I think what it is is an attempt to use the architecture that they have. The stores are brands. The physical architecture says something about store the idea that when you walk into a ralph lauren. Store it's not macy's that's the kind of idea they want to depict find interesting. Is that retailers. Were launching these virtual storefronts even before the pandemic which to me indicates that they think people will want to use them during normal times. Why do you think. Shoppers would go to a virtual store if they could go to one in person because it's easier sometimes because people have gotten used to the idea. The habit of shopping online and because those stores wanna differentiate themselves from amazon. If you can actually walk into ralph lauren. In a way that makes you feel good about what you're doing instead of going on to amazon and just going through a regular kind of standard catalog. Maybe would find more interesting. I mean occurs to me that stores are not always accessible or comfortable for everyone. And don't forget that. If you live in new york los angeles there are stores for just about every brand and so what they're doing is reporting the expensive architecture and branding that they created for these flagship stores in big cities and allowing people all over the country and even the world to go into them. So you've written about. How retailers are remarkably good at tracking us in store figuring out our preferences what we might wanna by using cameras and smartphone apps and gps's how might the data collection process look different in virtual storefront. Well the great thing about that. From the standpoint of the retailer is they can actually follow. Your is particularly if using goggles right. They know what you're looking at. They know where you've gone it has the counterpart of walking through the store. So they can actually see. Have you passed the shoe aisle while maybe if we give you a virtual coupon you'll go back to the shoe while they're that level of lineal activity that they can follow and they can see what you're interested in which is partly possible to do of course on a regular website but in terms of the movement across the store and maybe the the trying on of things and putting them back and all that eventually you'll be able to see in this kind of world That's gonna be useful for Stores to know also where you start when you go to a website you pretty well have search for a particular good and then you put it down or you purchase it when you walk into a store. You may wonder you know. If it's a virtual store the same thing and companies will be really interested in how people wander. That's one of the major issues of creating stores organizing stores figuring out how to get people to buy things. Where do you place your goods based upon how people wonder do you think there's any additional data a retailer might be able to get if you're shopping in its virtual store rather than its in-person store will say say what you look for is one thing if the voice becomes part of it for example if they include a virtual sales people who talk to you the way customers talked to the virtual sales people could become another important piece of data what companies infer from the way you speak and even the literal voice tones that you speak with can tell them things about you. Joe torre wrote the book. The aisles have is
COVID-19 vaccine distribution faces logistical challenges

You are doomed if you want to build a gaming computer right now
"If you're trying to build a high end gaming rig you're doomed right now. is you can't buy gp the five thousand series amd cpu's were available for like at launch day and haven't shown up again three thousand series. Gp's all over the map. Amd six thousand series gpu sold out Within a heartbeat at felt like. I'm sure it wasn't quite that fast. Other stuff has been back and forth Ton of televisions available projectors are available. You know set. Top boxes are available. apr's have been in and out. So maybe ours. That i expected to be out of stock until a biscuit before christmas are actually now in stock on us by amazon You know other things not so available Couplings like remind everybody going into black. Friday is especially if you shop on an amazon Camel camel camel. Dot com is incredibly useful. Because sometimes prices go up before Right before black friday. So there is a discount From a price that was actually higher than the normal sales price for the normal. It's or in some cases The really crazy ones are some vendors will actually create an entirely new product skew on amazon. So that there is no older price data so the earlier you check the more likely to have accurate pricing information for something you're looking for and if you are if you are in that desperate hunt per cpu a gpu or console from You know microsoft or sony Now in stock dot net is one way to try and track what's available and where it's available If you're trying to console christmas i have no idea what your likelihood is but it feels like if you find one you should buy it I don't want to encourage anybody to go out there and and pay the the the people on ebay that are charging two or three times. What it should cost But if if christmas is going to be ruined if there's not a console i think it's going to be really tough holiday shopping season for you. On the flip side in terms dot net to know win stock dot net. It's yeah it's tough and the cpu the pc stuff. I we were talking about this earlier. Daytime it's like you know and video always you know they're like you know cheapie us and then they always sell out and there's always this kinda mad dash but this is the first time i really remember nvidia being likes you stock. Will we have a limited supply of of and bbn like wait a minute. Are they getting honest. Or they basically have like eight and once those eight or sold out You're done but in twenty twenty a little bit of both right. Yeah yeah it could be. I mean if you're building a sort of a mid range gaming. Pc inexpensive gaming pc you want to build a you know a plex server. There's ton of hardware out there that's fantastic and is reasonably priced. It's just if you want to high end gaming. Gpu or cpu. It's really really tough. If you want consoles the new the new consoles from from mark shopping sony. it's really really tough Not so bad. But i would definitely definitely definitely shop early and ship early because the way have been going. This year inventories kind of been all over. The map and shipping has been kind of all over the map

"This is gps the global public square. Welcome to all of you in the United States and around the world. I'm Farid Zaccaria today on the show Bill Gates the head of the world's largest charitable foundation. What do we now know about this strange virus and its Effects House? The lockdown work is America. Ready to open up for business again. Will we have a vaccine and when I will ask bill these questions and more also where in the world that the virus come from was from a wet market for Chinese lab? Will we ever know we will get the latest science from one of the world's foremost virus detectives finally in this Earth Week? I'll tell you about the silver linings and the Cova crisis for mother Earth. But first. Here's my take foil Brian Kemp. He obviously didn't get the memo when the governor of Georgia announced on Monday that he was going to begin opening up his State's economy. He must've assumed the president trump would lavish him with praise. Afro just days earlier. The president has said publicly. The country was starting our life again and indicated that some states were ready to open up again. On Wednesday trump tweeted states safely coming back all countries starting to open for business again and yet hours after that tweet at his daily press conference. The president announced that he disagreed strongly with Kemp's decision. Welcome to Donald Trump's reelection strategy where he is both the government and the fiery opposition to that government. Populism has always fundamentally been a protest movement of outsiders railing against a corrupt elite that runs the country right wing populism additionally makes a distinction between the real people and the others who tend to be foreigners IMIGRANTS BLACKS. Jews and other minorities now. This strategy works. Well when you're out of government once you're inside though you face. The challenge politicians who win. Elections usually try to broaden their base and unify the nation. But populism depends on division and dissatisfaction in addition in times of genuine emergency people sober up across the world. Many populist parties that frivolously attacked the establishment have struggled to make their voices heard in a pandemic. It turns out. Many people want their governments to take an active stance preferably based on advice from experts. Trump's solution is to play insider and outsider simultaneously one day. He announces a careful plan devised by public health officials that announces a step by step process for opening up the next day he sides with street protesters against governors who are following those very guidelines. It's a complicated dance. You can watch the to trump's at his press conferences. He begins the session. As president trump. Making the days officials pronouncements reading in a dreary monotones from a script. He doesn't appear to have looked at forth phase and then from time to time. Donald TRUMP THE POPULIST ICON. Suddenly pops up commenting on his own scripts for example to say after recommending. The use of masks. This is voluntary. I don't think I'm GonNa be doing the Dr Jekyll. And Mr Hyde routine continues. Throughout the briefing as his own health officials stick the podium to make substantive trump would jump into something that is at odds with the message. They're trying to convey without see trump. Seems worried that this dance may not be enough to win him. Reelection especially as unemployment mounts the president has surely noticed that his approval ratings remained roughly where they were before the pandemic which is astonishing given that crises usually boost presidential approval enormously so he has doubled down on the attack strategy against the usual scapegoats the media and what has become an absurd daily routine as well as blue state governors liberal cities international organizations. And now of course most pointedly China. He's also returning to his favorite target immigrants. The president's ban on immigrants seeking green cards from coming into the country for sixty days is strange since the US has already largely halted immigration. But it's not really a policy. It is a political symbol. A reminder to trump's base that they can always count on him there is of course another path. Donald trump could have used the crisis to rally the nation around a common foe. He could have provided calm. Sensible leadership stayed on message with his own health officials and fostered unity rather than division. That's the approach of German. Chancellor Angela Merkel who now has a seventy nine percent approval rating. It is the strategy of Emmanuel Macron. Who moved up ten points in his very polarized country but it turns out that Donald Trump knows only one dance. Call it the populism hustle and he seems uninterested in learning any other from we'll go to CNN dot com slash. Farid and read my Washington Post column this week and let's get started..

"Let's get right to my guests this week. Hillary Clinton I will of course talk to her about the twenty twenty presidential race and the current occupant of the White House but since I started with corona virus and since it has the world on edge that is where I will start with her as well. Hillary Clinton pleasure to have you on thank you very much. So Donald Trump says there been a hundred thousand cases of corona virus worldwide. And yet just a very small number in the United States. Should he get credit for that? I don't think that anybody should get credit for that. We are a long way from knowing how this all play out. It's really just beginning. Let us all hope that the numbers stay low the fatalities stay as low as possible. But what I'm worried about is the attitude that has been taken by the president himself and his administration trying to downplay the risk not being prepared initially pushing the experts out of the picture. Now thankfully there back in and able to not only talk to the public but help to better manage how we are responding. He the president has said that so there are some things. The Obama Administration did That he questions. He says that The Obama Administration didn't handle the swine flu Well he talks about how change change some of the parameters of testing. Or what do you think? Well I don't think the facts support that assessment in fact. What we do know is that The SARS epidemic which happened in the very beginning of the Obama administration because I was secretary of state at the time Really was a full court. Press by the administration to be sure that at every level not only national state and local but globally. The United States was part of the response. The Centers for Disease Control had been given the responsibility under the Obama Administration to Be Vigilant and try to get ahead of where viruses like this. We're formulating especially if they were animal to people transmission of viruses so there was a lot that was done under the Obama Administration and in fact the trump administration Severely cut back the CDC BUDGET. Cut Back on this program of overseas vigilance. But I don't think it's time to point fingers whether it's from the past or from the present what people should expect. Is that everybody from. The president on down is focused on one thing not on name calling and blame-placing but how are we going to make sure that we prevent the spread of this virus in as much as that is possible and be sure that we support state and local health officials particularly on the front lines doctors nurses and others so that they are fully equipped and ready to take care of those people who get seriously ill? I think the experts have all told us that there are probably many many people walking around with the virus by now that it has been transmitted in many places of the country already. Many of them will not get sick. Or we'll get only mildly sick Others it will be a a more acute experience and so we've got to be sure that we're prepared to take care of those who get really sick. Another big thing that's happened. Recently is the deal with the Taliban your secretary of State dealing with exactly this issue. What do you think of the deal from what we know of it? Well I think what's more important is. What do the Afghan people and their government? Think of the deal and They were pretty much. Cut Out of the negotiations Immediately after it was signed between the United States and the Taliban in Doha the Afghan government. Which has been elected to represent? The Afghan people said they did not agree with the very large prisoner release that had been included in the agreement. there was supposed to be a cessation of hostilities. Apparently that did not hold and American forces were part of bombing a couple of sites in recent days where the Taliban had resumed fighting. So I think it's difficult to have a peace agreement when you leave out the government of the country that you are expecting to uphold and live under the peace agreement when you look at the broader region. Are you worried that we are on a on a path toward greater conflict with Iran because the the tension has mounted the sanctions on Iran running economies is being strangled but there is no negotiation? Going on I think it was a very serious error of the trump administration to pull out of the Iran. Nuclear deal I started the negotiations on that. We were Determined to put a LID on the nuclear weapons program of Iran. And we did now. I can understand a new administration might come in and say we don't think you got a good enough deal. We WanNa make it even better. I would argue with that but I can understand it and because of that. We want to reopen negotiations to add even more elements to this deal. But that's not what they did what they did was to say. It's a terrible deal. We're pulling out so what has happened. We now know that Iran has gone back to Enriching Uranium It appears they have increased. Their stocks of highly enriched uranium putting them closer to the development of a weapon. That doesn't make anybody safer and while they are doing that. There are no discussions as far as I know going on. Iran is also facing a real crisis with The Corona virus that has hit its people and its leadership Very hard there could be an opportunity to try to open some doors for cooperation None of that is happening. So what is happening? As a result of what I think was a quite short sighted decision on the part of the trump administration. They're getting closer to a nuclear weapon which to me is a disastrous development because of what it will mean in the region and the encouragement it will give to others just pursue a weapon as well next on. Gps Hillary Clinton says she warned America. About how bad President Donald Trump would be now. She says it's worse than she imagined. Back in a moment with that when you look at the trump administration went out three years in You campaigning against somebody would never held any government office And you will worried. And you sounded the alarm honestly. Do you think it has been as bad as you thought it would be. It's actually been worse. Because when he was elected I did hold out hope that despite all of the the rhetoric the bomb bast and everything we heard in the campaign that the job has a way of encouraging people to grow into it to accept the awesome responsibilities. That one has but when I heard his inaugural speech The divisiveness of it the continuing to set Americans against America's language carnage in the streets. I knew that he had no intention of trying to be. The president for the entire country was still very much focused on those who he had brought into his base and I think as a result he has made some very serious missteps as president. And you link. It hasn't gotten better over the economy that he inherited was on the right track and it was important that it remain on the right track. I'm worried though that we have seen some unfortunate detours for example with the trade embargoes and trade wars that he's engaged in and the failure to make any investments for the future. The big tax cuts have not produced the kind of big investments. That are going to make us richer and safer and stronger We were talking a minute ago about the virus. You know there's a lot. We should be doing to invest in infrastructure here and around the world to protect us against the spread of disease with climate. Change a lot of disease is going to move further and further north out of tropical climes. And are going to be posing threats to us. We're not thinking about the future. And it's all transactional what's in it for the president and his allies his cronies and his reelection. The thing I'm struck about as when he attacks you or Democrats it's always. It's about the character of the person. It's very personal. So he's asked by Sean Hannity. Would you think of Mike Bloomberg and he just goes on about how short he is very little which is actually not even that true five eight but in that he wanted a box for the debates which of course again is not true but he is trying to get at something very simple and the that goes to somebody's character. I mean a sleepy joe or or you know with Israel. Crooked Hillary lie many Mike Not Always rooted.

"On Thursday. The United States Senate did something very unusual. It went against the wishes of president trump when it passed a bipartisan war powers resolution on Iran. The resolution comes in the aftermath of the killing of the Iranian general money and attempts to curtail the president's power to attack Iran without the approval of Congress. Trump's interest in military intervention in Iran goes back at least in one thousand nine hundred eighty when he told an interviewer that the United States should have invaded the Islamic republic during the hostage crisis on the other hand the president is cozy with Iran mortal enemies. Saudi Arabia Riyadh was. Interestingly enough trump's first foreign stop as president. I want to talk about all of this with Kim Catis. She's a veteran with lease reporter. The author of a new book about the Cold War between Iran and Saudi Arabia called black wave can pleasure to have you on. Explain how you came to to write this book? Because there's a personal angle. There is a personal angle. I was trying to answer the question of what happened to us. Because unlike what most people think today particularly in the West the Middle East wasn't always this torn. We've always had people but not to this extent. And there are three misconceptions. People have about the region one they believe that Iran and Saudi Arabia have always been enemies. It's not true. They became rivals in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine after the Iran Revolution before that. They were twin pillars. Us policy in the region they were friendly competitors the other mistake that people make is thing that Sunnis. Shah's the two main sects in Islam have always had sectarian violence between them. Died is also not true. The theological divide Israel but over the course of history so nissans have probably killed each other less than Catholics and Protestants is just that these are the headlines of today and finally the cultural intolerance that seems to dominate and that makes the headlines was also not the norm in the region. So the question. What happened to us is what drove me to write this book. The opening of the book and I think the question of what happened was as important because I talk not just about the geopolitics but about cultural shifts about the norms that shift about the values that shift and I think the question what happened to us resonates beyond the Middle East today. Why do you call it? Black wave because that gets at the cultural shift it does get at the cultural shift in particular. I look at veiling of women that became much more widespread after nine hundred seventy nine as both Iran and Saudi Arabia tried to export their version of much more fundamentalist much more literalist puritanical Islam. You had the rise of you know the veil in Egypt in a way that had not been present before the black guy by the door so explain what we're black wave comes from that is where it was the cinema director of cinema director. Yusef Shahin who I used the term in the ninety S. He was complaining about the fact that Egyptian women were dawning. The Saudi style Niqab the face veil and the blackhawks by but it is the rise of a trend that is that is dark joyless and you can trace back to that year nine hundred seventy nine when these two countries started to use all the tools at their disposal including religion to try to rally the masses to their and they also heightened sectarian differences and turn them into sectarian divisions and violence so explain what happens in. Nineteen seventy-nine wise at this pivotal year. Well Nineteen seventy-nine is the year of the Iran Revolution. One Idaho Mania returns to to Iran from exile is the year when Saudi zealots takes. Take hold of the mosque in Mecca. Leach to it for two weeks hundred people or more are killed. The the let's put to death. It's also the year when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. And it's the start. It's the first Modern Day g hunt in our times. An effort backed by the United States. These three events with one one piece I think needs elaboration. Which is the takeover of the mosque in Mecca was done as you said by zealots who were attacking the Saudi monarchy for being too lax to learn and the Saudis. Took that as a sign that they needed to be more concerned they absolutely. They looked at what had happened to the Shah. We'd been overthrown by a theocrat for having been too forceful in his efforts to westernize the country and after Nineteen seventy-nine the Saudis decided. That what they need to do what was keep the clerics on their side and they did that not only within their own country but they started proselytising in pushing that beyond their borders just as the Iranians were doing. You know what I'm struck by. I think you agree with you entirely on the Q. Describe and it's an IT's political and it's and it's done for exactly the kind of reasons you're describing but it has changed the culture you go to the Middle East and women wearing the abaya everywhere. It's it is a black wave particularly in places like Egypt and certainly in the Gulf. How do you reverse course how does how does that happen? I think it is already receding. I think the black wave is receding because the young generation wants a different future because religion doesn't have the same appeal anymore if you look at the polls it'll show you that more than fifty percent of young people in the Arab world want religion to have less of a role in their country in their life and their politics. The characters I profile in this book are conservative. Muslims. They're devout but they're progressive thinkers. It's just that they've been silenced and they're not a westernized elite. I really do believe that. They represent a majority. And what we're seeing today on the streets of Baghdad or Beirut or Iran even in Algeria and Sudan is the young generation that is saying we're done with sectarian politics. We don't want to be hostages anymore to all systems of beliefs. We don't want to be hostage to nine hundred seventy nine so I have great. Hope I think the black wave is receding which is why unfortunately the Saudis and the Iranians are now resorting to nationalism to keep the muscles mobilized so I think we need to build things bottom up. I The people are the answer. Their hopes are the answer but the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Will I think continue to mutate and continue for now Kim because pleasure to have you on thank you for having me up next from Franklin Delano Roosevelt or Donald John Trump morality and immorality in the Oval Office? A fascinating study by an eminent Harvard scholar. When we come back once upon a time this was the news. The Earth is flat. Devil is real and that is everything that we not reckless in Stephen Semi Dirk Ages. A Miracle Workers Anthology Suzy's at ten thirty nine thirty central on TBS. It's an eternal question for scholars of foreign policy. What is the main driver behind? Big Decisions is national interest. All that matters when a president decides to say go to war or enforce sanctions or sign a trade deal on the flipside. How much does a morality play a role in such decisions? Do Presidents worry about how many people are going to die? Starve or lose their jobs should they? Well the great foreign policy scholar Joseph Nye was inspired to look at what fourteen presidents from? Fdr TRUMP considered when making such decisions and he's written a thought provoking book about it called do morals matter. We are joined by Joe Nye. Welcome thanks to you. So give us an example. We think of America American presidents following the national interest. Doing what they needed to wended morality. Change a big decision well great examples Harry Truman. Truman dropped the bomb on Hiroshima August. Sake it said he didn't lose any sleep over it. People don't realize that he also had a third bomb and refused to drop it because he didn't WanNa kill women and children and five years later when we were losing the war in Korea Douglas McArthur said. I want the right to drop twenty five to forty bombs on Chinese cities and Truman said no and he said no because of moral concerns now mentioned that he had decided yes and nuclear weapons became normal weapons. Were look very different today. That's a case where malls mattered. And in many cases that were that were the presidents who were sort of trying to navigate between doing what they thought was the strategically important thing but but still worried about morality right. That's right I mean it's rare that you can have a decision which is purely moral or Sometimes presidents will try to think of something which is in between which is where most of the things are Henry Kissinger once the hardest choices really are those which are between fifty one.

N. All new episodes of forensic files follow the evidence and crack the case forensic files to Premiere. Sunday February twenty third at ten only on H. L. N. now from what in the world segment late last month? President trump expanded his travel ban to six more countries effective. Later this week the new countries include Kirghistan Myanmar and four African nations. One of those is the continent's largest economy and its most populous country. Nigeria officials justified. The ban on the basis of national security concerns as the Washington Post reported. They say that each country has gaps in its security protocols surrounding travel that expose the United States to terror threats. But that argument doesn't really make sense. As the Cato Institute found no one born in Nigeria Myanmar Tanzania or every three or four of the countries have been responsible for a single terror related death on American soil between nineteen seventy five and two thousand seventeen and if the administration were really worried about lax security it would ban all visas from these countries. But it's only targeting pullman. Immigrant visas leaving temporary visas from those countries untouched which suggests that something else is going on here last year. When trump unveiled a new immigration plan White House aides told The Washington. Post trump wanted high-skilled. Well English speaking immigrants who could assimilate easily and give back to the country. That's an understandable wishlist for any world leader. But if that's what trump wants he should know the Nigerian immigrants who make up the largest group of sub Saharan African immigrants in the United States. As of two thousand seventeen. Check all those boxes. They are some of the most educated immigrants in America. According to the Migration Policy Institute fifty nine percent of Nigerian immigrants h twenty five or older in the US. Hold at least a bachelor's degree that is nearly double the proportion for Americans born in the US. It is also more than the proportion for immigrants from South Korea. China Britain and Germany and Nigerian. Immigrants tend to work high-skill jobs. Fifty four percent of them are in largely white collar positions in management business science and the arts compared to just thirty nine percent of the people vote in the US that means of course they have significant spending power. According to a new report by the new American Economy Research Fund in two thousand eighteen Nigerian immigrants in the United States made more than fourteen billion dollars and paid more than four billion dollars in taxes and the Nigerian diaspora around the world. Set back almost twenty. Four billion dollars in remittances in two thousand eighteen contributing to a Nigerian economy that is more dynamic than many people including maybe trump himself realize. Nigeria's wants to be just an oil economy but today services account for more than fifty percent of its. Gdp technology is now ten percent according to the Center for Global Development a growing middle classes increasingly educated and aspirational Nigeria's America's second-largest African trading partner and the US wants to double existing trade and investment in Africa as the former ambassador to Nigeria John. Campbell notes that goal taken alongside the ban amounts to quote policy incoherence unquote in terms of politics. However it has an obvious dark logic. Trump is often made it plain. He doesn't like immigrants from poor countries filled with Brown and black people as the New York Times reported in two thousand seventeen. He complained to AIDS. Nigerian migrants would never go back to their huts the next year. The Washington Post first reported that in a meeting with lawmakers. He said he wanted more immigrants from Norway and fewer from Haiti and Africa nations or as he famously dubbed them Shithole countries throughout the two thousand sixteen campaign trump described Mexicans as criminals and Muslims as terrorists. The Nigeria travel ban reminds us. I suppose that Donald John Trump is back on the campaign trail next on. Gps ABO versus Iran.

"Also the Middle East. Today's stuck in a new cold war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Will that Cold War? Turn Hot I'll talk to a veteran Middle East reporter INKATA'S WHO has a new book out about it And while all eyes were on Iowa the White House expanded trump's travel ban to six nations. This is America's loss and I will explain to you what but first. Here's my take. The prospect of Bernie Sanders becoming the Democratic nominee has startled many people who worry that his brand of Democratic Socialism won't sell and would pave the way for a second trump term. This might be true but surely the more important question is not whether his programs would be popular but whether in fact they're good programs. It's time to stop grading Bernie Sanders on a curve and start asking what the country would look like if he would have become president. Let's consider the topic that he argues is the single greatest challenge facing America and a global emergency climate change. Santa's wants to commit the United States to achieving one hundred percent renewable energy for Electricity and transportation by twenty thirty. This is a laudable. Though ambitious goal the question is how will he go about meeting it? Us carbon emissions fell almost fifteen percent from two thousand and five to two thousand sixteen. According to carbon brief the single largest cause for that was the switch from coal fired power plants to natural gas ones thirty three percent of the reduction the adoption of solar power by contrast accounted for just three percent nevertheless Bernie Sanders is opposed to natural gas. He opposes all new fracking and he seeks to ban it nationwide within five years. He also dense shutdown rapidly. All gas plants now wind and solar account for less than five percent of US energy consumption so his plan would require an exponential jump in renewables in just a few years and even if that happened it would be extremely difficult to replace gas as a source for electricity. You see solar and wind are intermittent sources so they require a backup source. In order to provide electricity to homes offices and factories. Twenty four seven sanders has a solution storage and if we had the means to spoil atrocity on a massive scale such as batteries there would be no longer need for backup power but we are not even close to having the kind of storage capacity. We would need to make this work one example. The Clean Air Task Force calculated that just for California to reach one hundred percent electronically from renewables. It would need thirty six point. Three million megawatt hours of energy storage the whole state currently has just a hundred and fifty thousand megawatt hours of storage now. There is another path to clean energy source that has zero carbon emissions and provides a continuous flow of electricity nuclear power. It generates about twenty percent of the electricity in the US and a majority of power and France and a large portion in Sweden to countries with carbon emission rates that are among the lowest person in the industrialized world but Bernie Sanders opposes nuclear power. In fact he plans to shut down. All America's nuclear power plants within ten years fears about nuclear power are largely based on emotional reactions to a few high profile accidents. That have taken place over the last few decades. Such anxiety knows the millions of people who die each year due to fossil fuels according to one study. Nuclear Energy is two hundred and fifty times safer than oil and over three hundred times safer than coal. Let me be clear. Natural Gas and nuclear power have drawbacks and costs. There is no perfect energy solution on hand today but I believe that we do in fact face a global emergency and we need every means possible to reduce carbon emissions now the sanders green energy plan is magical thinking it presumes that we can reduce emissions electricity and transport two zero in ten years while simultaneously shutting. Down the only to low emissions always available sources of power that collectively provide nearly sixty percent of America's electricity today. And that makes me wonder. Is the real problem that Bernie. Sanders will lose or that he might win for more go to CNN dot com slash read and read my Washington. Post column this week and let's get started president. Xi Jinping said on Friday that the corona virus outbreak is a big test for China. That may be the understatement of the so far the question that remains to be answered is will China. Pass that test. Let me bring in my panel and field. The Washington Post Bureau Chief Rana Feroza global business columnist and associate editor of the Financial Times. She's is a CNN. Global Economic Analyst and Dr Colleen Craft is an infectious disease specialist at emory university. School of Medicine and let me start with you. What does it feel like on the ground there this week compared to last week compared to the week before? Yeah well it feels quite strange This weekend all of the previous weeks as well that hasn't been really that noticeable difference. It's incredible to see this country of almost one point. Four Billion People essentially shot at stores. So when I've been traveling around the country this week around Beijing you see that shops restaurants. Everything is closed. There's hardly any traffic on the streets. Seventy thousand movie theaters still closed. Despite this call for everybody to go back to work this week in areas that have not been particularly badly hit by the virus. So it's still very much a country on shut down country that's trying to Struggling to contain this virus from spreading and I can I ask you about that that movie theater point because the government has asked people to go back to work everywhere as as far as I understand other than who bay province What does it tell us about? China that the government doesn't seem to have the power to reopen movie theater. I mean this is the real strange market Leninism. China is it not. Yeah well the rules are a little bit blurry in some places. The public gatherings are still and movie theaters fall into that Tenement Square. I drove through. This week is empty. Any places where people gather still supposed to be banned but we see it happening in all sorts of parts of the country where factories are supposed to be reopening but migrant workers are stuck in their countryside and their hometowns and the countryside. They haven't been able to get back to work so there are many hurdles to trying to resume some sense of melody here. The government is extremely concerned about the economic impact of this virus and almost trying to will the country out of this outbreak. Dr Kraft is it from what you can tell. Is it sensible for the Chinese government to start trying to get people to get back to work normalcy and such or should they still be this sense of almost kind of national quarantine? I think it's hard to tell because we don't know how many how transmissible this diseases and so it's unclear if they Closing down the shops and everything that they've been doing if that's really preventing this from getting larger or if it's actually not making any difference if it was already going to sort of And on its own but when you look at the number of cases abroard and things like that compared to SARS compared to other things what are you what are they tended if conclusions you can draw. I think it's hard at this time. We are very early. Much like we were and they Pandemic H One and one of two thousand nine. Were trying to really understand what. The mortality rate is from this. What the Trans Miss Ability is from this? We do know that the other two severe come Rona viruses that have happened in this decade which are SARS and Moore's this is Alex outstripped the number of cases that we have had. So we're we're over sixty thousand cases for murders. There was only a total of almost three thousand cases confirmed and so right now. I think we're still in the high transmission of this outbreak. And I think it's important for us to make sure that this doesn't continue to spread dramatically. Rana what is your sense of how the Chinese government will handle the concern. They have to cause a major economic. Well I think they're going to throw as much economic stimulus that this monetary and fiscal as we've ever seen I mean I wouldn't be surprised if you don't see this stemmed quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if you see an even bigger Amount of stimulus than we did. Post two thousand and eight financial crisis. There's a lot of fear and there's fear in the global economy too. I think that the key point.

"Prime minister. Boris Johnson won a resounding victory career on Thursday. Giving him what he called powerful new mandate to get brexit. We'll start there with today's panel. David Melvin was the foreign secretary of the UK. He's now now. The president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee. Ian Bremmer is the president of the Eurasia Group of Political Risk Research and consulting firm and re slaughter was the director of policy planning at at the State Department. She's now the CEO. The think tank New America David Apt to start with you because you were out campaigning. Your former Labor leader in in your personal capacity. What what do you think was going on? Why did Johnson get? What is the largest majority since Margaret Thatcher in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven? I think essentially it's quite simple labor. Corbin Kuban ISM were repellents to large numbers of voters the unpalatable fixture of the election was to vote for Johnson who did not have a greater support but Kuban and his policies. His incredible policy program was simply unelectable and I saw that on the doorstep Labor voters saying I'm Labor to my call my dental turn in his grave but I can't vote if you and I can't even vote for you when you've got a good local Labor candidate. A A part of my theory is when you present voters with clarity versus murkiness. They always go for go. If you wanted to vote for Brexit it. It was absolutely clear what you'd you voted for the Conservative Party. If you didn't want breaks it what were you meant to do Labor. The CORBETT himself had been of two minds. You know it wasn't wasn't which we should devote Liberal Democrats. Everything was muddy on one side and very clear for Boris Johnson. Essentially you can see it as a vote for certainty and sovereignty because the Johnson got an awful lot of the people who had voted for Brexit They now flipped to Tories. Because I agree agree with you I think Corbin was unpalatable. But I really think it was. We voted for Brexit. We Wanna get brexit done sovereignty certainty and change and market seemed to react. Uh even positively saying at least it's now clear. The uncertainty three years of being in limbo is over. They want to get through this. And it's very clear that Boris Johnson. Some gave them that. He said I'm going to get brexit done by the end of the year. Corbin certainly was not going to do that of corporate had one this would have been the most meaningful negative election in in Europe for decades. Let's keep in mind. This also means the Scots Scottish National Party. They really want out right and then it costs them an awful lot of money to do it. It's not clear. Yeah how easy would be for them to get into the EU. They're demanding a referendum and when their parliamentary comes up in two thousand twenty one. I suspect there's going to be very strong. Mandate for that so this could be the beginning inning of the long one long-term unwind of the gaming people voted for the end of Brexit. But of course it's not going to be the end of Brexit. It's it's the easy bit of which which is getting getting out of the European Union. The hard bit. What's the future economic security political educational scientific relationship with the European Union? They haven't even started Tom. And that's why there's trouble brewing on the European front as well as I agree with you on the domestic from let let me ask you. What do you think of the lessons for American politics politics because you really now had? The toys have become. The populist Nationalist Party of the left is trying to figure out what it does. What did you hear that Democrats Democrats should know about if you confuse your own twitter sphere with the real world? You're in trouble if you'll policy program is incredible. People won't vote for it. Even if the individual components are popular the more radical change. You want the more detailed incredible. You have to be about how you'll make it happen. I'm I'm finally and most importantly you need a very clear vision of the future. The offer that could Jeremy Corbyn made better yesterday was not going to deliver for the United Kingdom. You've got to be able to unite the country to go forward not to look back. It struck me. Also that again immigration you know the the left is incredible on immigration that the country feels what. We're not supposed to have borders. We're not supposed to control the flow. Anyone who wants to come in and and that I find it's a very common sensical level voters say. Yeah we need borders. We need to have much more control over our destiny. I think that's right right although actually I think in the US election immigrations going to be less important this time but I definitely think the. US electorate of the Republicans are going to say. This is two thousand sixteen all over again. Britain voted for Brexit in June of two thousand sixteen. Nobody thought that was going to happen. Nobody thought trump was going to get elected. Those two things were tied and trump will now say and again you know the elites are just ask. David puts an a better yesterday. We are the future we are ashamed. I would I would bet you. That trump will vote for the Democratic Party. They're going to let anyone in across the southern border and they can all get free health care and an in education and and that frankly is what a lot of Democrats are. The primary debates have been saying over the lesson for the Democrats is exactly unity and a very broad tent and we don't. I don't see anybody right now in the among the Democratic candidates. Who can can do that? What do you think is the is the danger here that we're missing the slugger? Replay that just as brexit foreshadowed from getting elected. Boris Johnson foreshadows trump getting reelected. I wouldn't go that that for I. Don't actually think they're big lessons for the US election twenty twenty simply because Corbin is such a uniquely bad candidate he makes Bernie Sanders. Look look like Tony Blair. But but I do think that Boris Johnson is as a governing. figure much more normal than trump is is international. You saw that. He was one of those European leaders then Justin Trudeau that was mocking. The American President didn't WanNa have that meeting with trump during the NATO summit on climate climate on immigration on a whole bunch of issues. Boris Johnson's actually a lot. Closer to a lot of other leaders around the world than he is trump. I think play out now. That has a five year term quick taught on the final Tauron on British elections. The Labour Party leadership might be open. Would you consider running for leader of the Labour Party. Obviously see this is here to set up the campaign team. No the you're going to be a member of parliament I've got a job. The needs to be a vacancy needs to be filled by someone. WHO's in parliament? But there's a deep thing hit Kuban without Kuban is still unelectable. You'd have to take out the mind but you've got to change approach as well. You heard. Here he's running the next on.

"China the US Japan Germany find out later in the show. But first here's my take on. Its face the impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump might seem seem to be a specifically and narrowly American matter. But if you look around the world you see this taking place amidst a deeply worrying global trend trend in country after country. We're witnessing an astonishing wave of attacks on the constitution institutions norms and values that have given democracy strength and meaning. Consider what has been happening just this week around. The world as Congress debated charges against the President in India. The world's largest democracy the ruling party passed an unprecedented citizenship bill that privileges certain religions over others a move that one Indian intellectual described as a giant step to officially convert a constitutional democracy into an unconstitutional ethanol crecy Israel which boasts of being stable democracy in a sea of dictatorships appears paralyzed and polarized as it heads into its thirty election in one year. More disturbing the prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu has launched an extraordinarily vicious attack on the Israeli judicial system which he claims there's been plotting against him in fact. Netanyahu faces indictment because the attorney general. Who is from Netanyahu's Party and was chosen by? Netanyahu was following following the existing laws and procedures in Hungary. Prime Minister Viktor Orban who has spoken openly about building an illiberal democracy has Pushed for laws to make it harder for opposition lawmakers to band together and to protest legislation. He's also moved to curtail the power of local governments after his own party. We suffered a severe setback in municipal elections at the International Court of Justice nearly thirty years after she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize as pro democracy discipline me on Mars. UNSUNG SUCI staunchly defended her government against charges of genocide against a Muslim minority group. The Rohingya Inga U. N.. Investigators have found evidence of mass killings gang rape arson with genocidal intent. And this is all just in. And this week if you broaden the lengths were living through. What Stanford's Larry? Diamond has called a democratic recession.

"The leaders news of the Western world gathered on the outskirts of London this week to celebrate the seventieth anniversary of later and to continue a debate that he's been raging recently a by the future of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was founded in one thousand nine hundred forty nine with twelve original members. The big four at the time of course was the Soviet that union today NATO has twenty nine members who face threats as varied as Russia Islamic terror and cyber and space war. President trump has shaken the membership of the organization by Waffling on its raison. d'etre it's most important reason for being the collective defense of its members Article Five states that an armed attack against one or more member nation shall be considered an attack against them all now. The president of France also believes that NATO they do is in very bad shape so I sat down with the head of NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the summit. This week Mister Secretary General Pleasure should I have you on. Thank you so much well having so I heard some of your Defenses about many of the things that have been said the summit you know. President President trump after Elisa candidate said NATO's obsolete now the French President says NATO is brain dead and point out there. have been disagreements in the past but this time time in the passenger was over policies or Suez or the Iraq war. This is a almost a disagreement about the existential nature of NATO itself itself should it exist is functioning. Well the message from this meeting the leaders meeting this week has been that all allies also those those who have expressed some critical concerns they are committed to NATO onto to the idea of a one for all because we are safer when we stand together and not only committing words but the reality is that North America and Europe. We do more together now. Then they're done for many many years increased Enzo so forces for the first time I've used to have combat troops in eastern part of the Lions European allies are investing more in defense modernized local monster and for the first time in our history where interesting for instance the consequences Over NATO for Of the rise of China also so needless NATO is changing. That's and that's what we've done for decades that what's we continue to let me ask you about the points macron made one. was that if you listen to president trump he is saying I do not take responsibility for European security. I do not think the threats to Europe threats to the United States when he talks about terrorism in Europe. He says those are your problems in a sense. He's saying that the United States under from is detaching itself from your concerns and president trump. This Week said we've benefit the least from NATO of all countries. Do you worry that. Without the anchor of the NATO will not be what it used to be. I am confident that the US will remain committed to NATO for several reasons. First of all that is something the president has expressed expressed a meeting the twenty eight other NATO leaders In London this week second is that the US Congress the Spring and it was the very strong bipartisan support to NATO in the Congress thirdly if you look at opinion polls in states actually record high support support for a NATO and then top on that the United States it's actually not decreasing but increasing its military presence in Europe and the US uses leading won the battle groups In in in the eastern part of the alliance so the fact that there are more. US soldiers in Europe. I can hardly think about an stronger commitment to European European security than that so president trump was asked about natives purpose and he said well you know it used to be that we were. We were allied against a a full of so-called foes. We said who may not be a faux anymore. Do you think Russia's no longer foe of NATO we don't l'Ouest foes we don't we don't define Russia's as an enemy What we see is a more Assertive Russia which had used military force against neighboring Ukraine We see more unpredictable security landscape with the Russell tiresome of vices we see cyber threats we see a EH global bond so power-shifting with China and in in uncertain times we need strong international institutions like NATO but but is Russia for now. We don't define we don't we. Don't divide the world into either false or friends would use to be said you know Lord is. May's famous is line. The purpose of nature is to keep the Russians out the Americans in and the Germans down. What's left just to keep the Americans in then that doesn't apply today? The first of all NATO is to keep all of us. It's good for us. It's good for for for Donald is good for Europe that we stand together Russia.

"Coming to you today. From London on the show today NATO the Western alliance lines celebrated seventy years at summit. This is the sub two genera and organizations suffering as president. mcfaul claims just can't go around. It is obsolete as president trump's than during the friendy sixteen campaign NATO is. I'll talk to NATO's secretary very general and as Britain heads to the bowls. Brexit is now a real possibility. We all now going to get brexit. I I sat down with the man who started all the head of the BREXIT party. He always colorful Nigel farage. asser complete total rub it also unrest any wrong rising up again and the review is reacting reacting with deadly violence. I'll talk to the Iranian journalist. Masha Buhari who was arrested in the uprising and crackdown during the two thousand nine. The Green Revolution. But first here's my take. Republicans have rallied to Donald Trump's defense with a vigor and ferocity. That might even have surprised. The president it was only a few years ago. That many of them suggested he was not really a Republican and certainly not a conservative but now all Republicans love trump and purest conservative groups. Like the tea party Patriots. Freedom Works and the club for growth on mobilizing them millions supporters to fight for the president. Why the answer given most often is that when you look past the circus and the history onyx? The president has been a reliable able and staunch conservative and while this is undeniably true in some areas. It's mostly in the realm of social and cultural policy appointing judges tidning rules relating to abortion immigration and asylum in what Republicans used to call the core of their agenda limited government. Trump has been profoundly unconservative. Take the issue that produce the tea party. America's Runaway Debt and Twenty Twelve Future House Speaker Speaker. Paul Ryan said in this generation a defining responsibility of government is to steer our nation clear of a debt crisis while there is still time in his first year in office. Trump would eager assistance of a Republican House and Senate blew up the American budget with a tax cut. The balloon the deficit this year to almost one trillion dollars and will add nearly two trillion to the national debt over ten years now. The hypocrisy of Republicans applicants about deficits has often been noted. But what is most striking is that this. Abandonment of limited government and fiscal conservatism is. Part of a larger remake of conservatism itself trump has now added more than eighty eight billion dollars in taxes in the form of tariffs according to the tax foundation. Despite despite what the President says please remember tariffs are taxes on foreign goods paid for by American consumers this has had the effect of reducing using GDP and denting the wages of Americans even the administration acknowledges the pain caused by straight wars responding to one bad policy with another massive Asif subsidies to favoured victims for example farmers bailout to farmers just under thirty billion dollars now dwarfs the twelve L. billion that the two thousand and nine auto bailout cost the federal government more even than free trade conservatives have believed in the idea that governments should not pick winners and loses in the economy and so fundamentally republicanism that trump tweeted it out in two thousand fifteen soon after announcing his candidacy yet. The trump on but ministration has behaved like Central Planning Agency granting waivers on Tariffs to favored companies while refusing them to others salmon cod awed bibles and fracking. Chemicals are among the products that have escaped being taxed for now in True Soviet style lobbyists lawyers and corporate executives now now lineup to petition government officials for these treasured waivers which are granted in a totally opaque process all this favouritism fits very well with trump's trump's designed to engage in industrial policy but shape to fulfill his own personal agenda not some national economic one he consistently helps companies and workers in key battleground battleground states. He hopes to win twenty twenty when he decided that he doesn't like a company. or its Chief Executive Jeff bezos. He adopts them. By name on the core horseshoe that used to define the GOP economics.

"A new report from the European Commission warns that subdued growth is ahead as traditional economic drivers like Germany stagnate but a google of Eastern European countries once hindered by Soviet communism is now outpacing most of the rest of the continent and fact of the eight countries with growth three percent and this year all but two were once part of the Eastern Block.

This week is is d Hungary with projected. GDP growth of a whopping four point six percent this year Poland and Romania followed four point one percent for context.

"Of populists if you will. There's really nowhere to go because the choice is between a conservative party. That's has become a brexit party and the labour party that is led by marxist and so there's the question is kind of how big will the shift to the center. How well will the lib dem's in particular do and the hope i think is that you end up with them. Either constraining kuban led government such that it can't do too much damage or if you have what's called a hung parliament and the tories of the biggest single party limiting what anything that can happen in terms of no deal so the the choice itself. It's a horrific joy search for the country because it's it is different though the choice between a prime minister corbyn why he become prime minister if he was unconstrained he would do unbelievable unbelievable damage to the UK. A hard brexit crashed out which seems to be what the tory party under boris johnson once would also do enormous damage so it's it's the rock and hard heartbreaking for many many people particularly remain towards but centrists that all stripes there is not a natural home in either of the two main parties. This will sound familiar to a lot of the people in america. David in the sense of people fear that bernie sanders gets the nomination you confronting the same drifts. Why is it not not possible for the left to be a kind of open. Ca cosmopolitan liberal free pro-trade party is is the is the dynamics on the left such that you have to move left. I think there's a simple reason and there's a more complex when the simple reason is that political parties are getting taken over by their extremes <hes> <hes> one of the conservative. MP's refers the talibanisation of the tory party. I wouldn't use that phrase myself doc given afghanistan's tragedy but you can you know what he means in the labor ponti. It's <hes> far left. There's no no doubt about it this taken over the commanding heights of the body the deeper questions though are about the extreme inequalities that exist in all scientism whether they can be addressed from the centre-left rather than from the extreme dream left and that's where people are my version of got work to do to come up with compelling ounces because from my point of view being anti-trade is you puts. It doesn't do anything for people in my former constituency. We've got to make sure that we have an inclusive form of growth. That actually does deliver for them. A many of my friends all of many of them have stuck with the labor party but they think is the only only vehicle to in the end can deliver however. They're acutely conscious. That boris johnson secret weapon at the moment is jeremy corbyn and that's the problem. If there is an election will you go and campaign for labour yeah and also campaign to make sure that i mean there was a one a labor. MP who left this week luciana berger excellent <music> <hes> MP.

"Let's keep this discussion going. I have some of the smartest folks i know. On the subject of british politics politics george osborne was the chancellor of the exchequer he is now the editor of the evening standard. David miller band was britain's foreign secretary he's now the president and CEO of the international rescue committee and zanny minton beddoes is the editor of the economist zanny. Let me start with you. Is this all now proceeding. In a way that boris boris johnson wanted which is he's forcing an election between him colorful but popular and a very unpopular labor leader jeremy corbyn or been or has this all exploded in his face. I think there's a bit of both i think some of this was where he was trying to get to the lord's exploded in in his face and i think it became increasingly clear that he was not really serious about trying to get a deal with the european union something crushing out or something he had said a couple of months ago was a million to one chance <hes> but it became increasingly clear particularly over the past ten days that that was actually you know what he was planning to do. I think what he didn't bancorp unkown was when he announced that parliament would be prorogued to use the jargon but effectively suspended that a band of tory. MP's and ex-ministers administers now now become known as the rebel force <hes> what determined to stop that and they worked rather effectively to pass legislation with the opposition that would essentially actually prevent britain from crashing out october thirty first and would force the prime minister to ask for an extension he then sacked them summarily and in so doing living showed that to be a tory nowadays you have to be in favor of crushing at the tory party's become the brexit party i think he underestimated the reaction within the rest of his party. <hes> of disquiet at at this extraordinary behavior and then the other surprise has been the discipline shown by jeremy corbyn the <hes> yes awful leader of the opposition at not nautica mmediately agreeing to an election and saying that they would not be an election until this legislation was on the books and essentially wanting to leave boris johnson dangling to force him to to be the prime minister who asked for an extension so you have this completely weird thing in british politics there are loads of weird things in british politics but right now you have a prime minister who has always said he didn't really want an election desperately to try and have it and a leader of the opposition who is desperate being desperate to have an election now trying to prevent one happening. This is the topsy turvy world that we live in a george george. How deep is the rift in the in the conservative party. Is it conceivable that boris johnson could face an internal rebellion large enough that it could unseat him. He will be unseated. Although he is a bit like one of those greek tragedies that he often quotes he is is cursed to got the job always wanted and now's a find it impossible to do the job because essentially an important section of the conservative served department has been fired by him now i think he will reverse that because he called govern without their support and i also think the big picture certainly the need for an audience around the world is the britain's about to have another general election. <hes> the timing is being disputed but essentially in october or november probably november britain will go to the polls because all political system is unable to deliver on what was perceived to be the instructions of the referendum a few years ago which is leave the european union without pain and since leaving the european union involves pain and no one's prepared to admit to that alter to compromise on that you essentially now have this this electoral contest between the undeliverable which is a pain free brexit and the unelectable which is this marxist leader of the labour party and so it's probably not gonna election that resolves the situation much to everyone's frustration here. David is the labor party going to be able to be resolutely the party that wants to stay in the european union will be able to present the public with that clear choice. I think that <hes> it's unlikely to be able to be wholly convincing them. Because obviously jeremy corbyn zone history in respect of the european union he voted against joining nine seventy five on fairly misbegotten grounds that it was a capitalist <hes> club but also he's acutely conscious. There are a number of labor voters who want want to leave and he's tone electorally that i think at the end of this week we know that brazil all strategic genius. We know that we're not gonna leave on thirty first of october and we also know that the next general election is completely unpredictable because on the one hand you've you've got a conservative party that will be united but divisive in the country the kicking out of churchill's grandson many of georgia's friends have i've been kicked out of the conservative party so it has become the brexit party and so the tactical voting people who wanna vote liberal in one place to defeat the tories won the labor or in other ways could defeat what will be the weight of the conservative message all right if you're all confused <hes> just stay with us going to sort it all out become <music> hi. I'm bill kristol feeling confused about politics. Who isn't that's why i host my podcast conversations. Che's with bill kristol. I have thoughtful conversations with leading figures in politics and public policy. We reflect on where we are. We consider where we're going. Our latest releases with foreign in policy expert eric edelman who discusses the dangerous world. We live in please subscribe today to conversations with bill kristol no spin no soundbites just thoughtful real real conversations. We are back talking about britain's brexit mess with david mill abandonment and beddoes and george osborne david david. If you were the leader of the labour party as many blairites devoutly wish you were. Would you agree to allowing an election. It seems this to me and you know. It doesn't make sense right now for corman to do so because if you believe the polls he loo. I think the line is very clear. There's got to be an election but it's got to be an election. That is cool. Once we know that sufficient time for new government to take its own approach to european policy shoehorning an election in before the third verse among tober or even giving ving the current prime minister the chance to change the date of the election which he is allowed to do <hes> on advice to the queen. I wouldn't be why so that's why i think georgiana zannier right to say we're looking at a november or december election. Although i don't want to register it's not completely inconceivable that actually the fear of an election dries is some tories and labour. MP's to revisit dare. I say it theresa may's deal when i was lost on this show six months ago. I boldly said yes. Her deal will get through. I was completely -pletely wrong but incredibly. It's not totally dead yet george if that happens if if david is right in the labor sticks out and says i yes you have to get an extension from the european union. Only then will we agreed to an election and you do have an election in november or or something like that. Does that landscape again does it. It looks good for boris johnson. <hes> because labor is unpopular. Could that change well on the one side boris. Johnson is a communicator unlike his predecessor. He actually got off to a good start as prime minister over the recent weeks <hes> but he's collided with the reality of a parliament. There's not prepared to leave the european union without a deal and he is going to be forced to break this central pledge edge which is he would not be prime minister and allow britain to stay in the the thirty first october. Did there's some rumors he might even resign as prime minister and contest the election from outside number ten being office when that happens but he he's got a clear message. He's a he's a he's a natural and charismatic politician but he's got a big problem and the problem is not so much the labor party which is mass and very unpopular leader. It's actually the other parties in british politics. The liberal democrats what's the sort of third force in british politics scottish nationis in scotland all of whom are expected to do pretty well against the conservatives and giving the consensus starting at zero arrive you go down against liberal democrats down against scottish nashes. You've gotta make that up against labor just to stay where you are fundamentally. I would argue as one of the few remaining x. Chancellor's allowed to be in the conservative party fight a couple of them earlier this week that if the conservative policy just becomes the brexit party she is david correctly describes. It is unelectable. We need to be the broad church. We need to win in middle class areas by the definition of middle wells professional areas of the south of england and here in the cities like leeds as well as in the former industrial towns and essentially that trade which is is trading the professional areas of the country for the more depressed and left behind areas is is not sustainable for the conservative buddy great to win both but you shouldn't trade one for the other and if we go into this election in the current situation there is quite a risk that the conservatives will be out of office zanny so does this look like looking at it from the outside. Is this turning into another kind of referendum. If you will on on populism of a kind where the conservative party is now moving more toward this you know what would in british politics would be the populist side which is get out of europe and labor ended up it ends up with some kind of pro european component. Is that the big. Is that the big divide in britain now. I think it's i wish it was that simple. I think it's a little bit more complicated than that because for people who are sort of open internationalised centrists the kind of opposite.
