"What's it going to look like. They're going to be a normal amount of fans across the sport so there are still some unknowns but we are slowly getting there and i'll tell you i've never been more excited. It is something that we we've taken for granted. What would we. I mean there every single. Who'd ever think this would happen. Never never never never but now even going to games. I remember thinking how the last thing i want to do. Is i've been to a million in my lifetime. Not sound like a spoilt brat. But that's what i did as a kid. I would always go to these games now. We're working we're covering it. We're watching it when i'm off. I want to kind of take a little break from ghana game now. I can't wait now. I want to take a break from my wife. Ain't gonna take love you honey. No but it's true right your wrath and go to the game. I haven't traveled. I usually go to a couple ballparks year and couldn't do that last year. I'm dying do anything to the world series. Actually you couldn't have been allowed to have gone in texas. I don't remember what the rules were. They did allow fans right dead.

How Effective Is The COVAX Scheme?
"The vaccination program in britain is by accounts going extremely well. The country's ordered four hundred and fifty seven million doses of the job or enough to dose the population. Three point six times over. So what happens to the surplus until the world is protected against the virus there is little hope of eradicating karuna. Well this is where the kovacs scheme comes in led by the world health organization it also involves the global vaccine alliance gavi and the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations and hopes to deliver more than two billion doses. Two people one hundred ninety countries in less than a year. China and russia are also racing to provide inoculations but is this altruism or a soft power push men will martin is medical innovation and policy advisor at msf's access campaign and joins me on the line. Now man will thanks for coming on. We're seeing this program begins to roll out. Globally garner has become the first to receive vaccinations through kovacs. But how effective is the scheme proving so far. Good morning So so far. It is delivering doses as you save the i also have been delivered to ghana however it is only delivering thus far vaccines of two different manufacturers. One of pfizer and one of his of astrazeneca and so far the numbers are quite limited. It has not yet secured enough doses in binding agreements to come through on. Its promise to deliver two billion doses of kobe. Vaccine's towards partners people are countries that are participating in colfax and also. Another big problem is that it's been incredibly transparent about the way that it signs deals. We don't know the prices that have been paid for these vaccines and we also don't know what what kind of concessions these agreements have come between. Gabby which is negotiating partner. Go backs and pharmaceutical industry. Who's at fault. Here is rich. Western countries hoarding or the venue vaccine manufacturers themselves. I think it's a bit of both so obviously the country's securing large volumes of doses to vaccinate as you've said multiple times their population is a big part of the problem but the other problem is also that pharmaceutical companies have been willing to sign. These deals when could imagine a different scenario where pharmaceutical companies prioritized deals with the kovacs acidity over signing bilateral deals with countries precisely because it's a pandemic and because global solidarity the only way we're going to get out of this. I mean britain. You have pledged to give their surplus supplies with that plug the hole so far what i have seen has have only been commitments to donate some doses once. They've reached a certain threshold. I think the you is aiming to back. Say seventy percent of its population by summer britain. Somewhere close to seventy five percent. And i mean let's just be clear what that means that means that in these countries low risk young individuals will be back soon aged for many developing countries can even max innate just their healthcare workers in their elderly the truly. They're at risk. The other problem that we're seeing is and is that a vaccine in particular the oxford astrazeneca vaccines that these countries have bought are now sitting around not being used. Because people fear that they're not as effective as they should be so with these stockpiles. Just sitting around. I really fear that they may actually go out of date before there used and that would really be a shame when there's so much need in the developing

"He said that it was proven Suren unrealistic to think that the pandemic might be stopped by the end of the year. And he said the world singular focus right now should be to keep transmission of cove in 19 as low as possible. Right, And that's I mean the first world countries. They're doing exactly that. It's a third world countries who are not getting vaccinated. What was that? About Three weeks ago, we reported that in sub Saharan Africa, there were exactly zero Vaccinations, and I think it was last week that we reported that Kovacs, which is the the organization that a whole bunch of first World countries have joined to get those vaccines to those countries. Ah, Ghana, Ghana got its first shipment of a real amount of doses that might make a difference. That's it. So far, it's gonna be a while. I mean, we're going to be at full blast come summertime end of summer were basically done other than the anti vax people. I We're all going to have our vaccinations s so we're gonna be in pretty good shape. We're gonna have herd immunity. But people traveling yesterday, for example, the in the UK they had three or four new cases. The Brazilian variant, which right now is the most dangerous variant and they were all people coming from the Manaus area into the UK And they're scared about one is going to go around and on and that is they think they don't know yet they're doing the testing may be more resistant. I mean, it's a given. It's more transmittable. That we know like the UK version. What? We don't know if it is, If it is resistant, they doesn't seem to be right now. But if this thing mutates literally every day That's what viruses do. Well, there's a local nursing home that is in big trouble. Don't let us.

New Law Changes With Tom Black
"Hello and welcome to your retirement solution with tom. Black good morning tom. How're ya. I am doing great. It is a beautiful day with lots of opportunity absolutely happy new year by the way. This is our first recording. You and i in the in twenty twenty one. Yeah it's going to be Should be really interesting year. I we it has to be different. I don't know better but it has to be something has to change. I'm i'm really hoping for better and speaking of changes you're talking about that today a little bit. We're going to talk a little bit today about Proposed changes under the new administration and things that people ought to be thinking about nassir panicking about yet but just thinking about because of the lightning what we could see some changes dealing with the last couple of years all right and what kind of changes are we talking about specifically today. Well there's there's kind of a basset of multiple different ones. We've you may or may not have heard about the we're going to be seen some increases in taxes or some individuals and some of that depends on what happens with the so called trump tax break of twenty eighteen. One of the things have benefited everybody. That was included in there was a was the twelve percent tax bracket and that's been really beneficial to absolutely everybody who pays taxes and they're talking about on reversing those trump those tax bills. Which would mean that all of us. Potentially you know three percent more in taxes. Ghana still up on. These things are all in the air. But that's one of the first things we look at. We started talking about. How is this going to affect all of our clients in general or just individuals in general taxes. And that's the first thing that i was thinking about the other. Now that we know where georgia falls is that we could potentially be seeing other attached changes that can affect how you've been planning for your retirement or for the passing of your assets the next generation one of the ones that i am most interested in keeping an eye on for our clients is somewhat People either they've heard about it. They have no idea how this works. And it's called a step up in basis that you heard of this before i have but i don't quite understand all of it okay. So let's start with that with the basic idea. Let's say that Your parents bought calf dozen stocks in the sixties. And and they've held them ever since then. Well if your parents died in leave you those stocks you might be able you would be able to today. Turn around and sell those and pay no taxes on the gain you know. Maybe it's a million dollars with the gains okay. Yeah yeah yeah so i. If my parents were to sell them they'd have to pay yet. But if i if i inherit them then i don't that's correct. Well okay. that sounds good basis and you imagine people who are retired been retired for a while. who have some of these positions stock positions. If up well hail hold onto it. And if i die owning my kids will have to pay taxes on part of their narrates not a bad strategy. If you didn't need the money yeah problem now is all we're doing now is kicking the can down the road because if that does get refilled and that is really high on the list That can change. How you're going. You know how you plan on passing those assets so the kids. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah yeah and i was gonna say it seems to be almost a double edged sword there. Because if you're saying that they may change that and then if i in twenty years let's say i passed these stocks down to my kids and they have to pay taxes on them. We've we've already kind of seen the writing on the wall. That taxes are most likely going to be higher because we have to pay for all the debt that happened this last year with kobe. The relief and everything else in the trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars so that really changes the game not only does it bring those taxes back it. they'll probably higher. Don't you think absolutely. Oh boy i had this conversation with one of my clients In december and and in that situation they had About two million dollars in capital gains. And what was trying to get him. Understand was the taxes weren't going to get any cheaper and and we were better off to take the beating at which is approximately twenty four for them would have been about twenty four percent in taxes taxes any real by the stocks back but if pay taxes on it because it won't be cheaper in four years to pay the taxes mondo stocks if the gains continued to go. So it's it's a lot more complex than than just the the idea that you're right. It's going to get more experience so we know it is. It has to yeah not even last year. I mean we've been we've been spending money like drunken sailors for

Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha
"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone. You in south america. So what we're beginning to see. Is they celebrate to ship in. New york is named spear pm. He's now taken for neo his packaged. It's not just in its physical formats but in the narrative that used salads and last year. I think it's early this year. It got the national distribution across the united states in whole foods. You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet. But then we've sent entrepreneurs coming here and repackage it into something that selling like a lot because it resonates resonates with the health and wellness movements the big trend going on in the
34: GANGS, Crime and MENTAL HEALTH
"Hello cruel world. I am your host for a psych for sore minds. My name is dr shahad. Madonna's consultant forensic psychiatrists. I live in here in london. I assess mentally disordered offenders. So you don't have to so. This episode is part to a three part series about gangs last episode. I told you about real life case of a gang related murder of a teenager by another group of teenagers. this episode. i'm gonna tell you something a bit. Different something unusual. I'll tell you about a young man. Who assessed who is the target of a local gang and he became mentally unwell in the next episode part three. I'm going to tell you about another case where i'm pre show again exploited a vulnerable young man and they got him to do that dirty work on half and he ended up with a very serious weapons related charge. But first let's make this educational are going to very quickly. Talk to you about why gangs commit violence. So there were several reasons. It could be to protect their territory from the gangs for example in drug dealing hot spots. It could be to enforce the collection debts. Obviously the mark is more likely to pay up. If there's potential pressure and violence coming from dozens of people in all directions and other reason would be to extort money so that's usually a local businesses or shops and can be nightclubs. Casinos with the offer of protection from other gangs are trying to do. the same. Another reason might be to respond to a slight to a gang member whole to the entire guy. That's how boys start and also to keep the status up in the community and to be feared because gangs only work if they have fear in the territory. We all this. We've all seen wire. Finally another reason might be protecting owner of a gang member or their family and to prove the gangs toughness especially to establish themselves in the hierarchy of a prominent position in again in fact. Violence is so serious that in some gangs they a blood in blood out policy so blooded means that to get into the gang in the first place you have to really hurt somebody and some gangs yet ashton. Kill somebody to get a blood out. Means you have to give a written confirmation within the two week cooling-off period of starting the contracts. only kidding. it means the only of the gang is by death. In terms of forensic psychiatry. We do see gang members once in a while they quite rat but roughly quite kind of limited in our ability and our resources to do much about it. After the person's discharge refer them onto other specialised agencies substance. The work with the police who offer gang members away out the obviously that needs to motivation from the individual and it can equal a death sentence in some gangs as per behalf of mentioned very decisive blood out policy. While patients are in patients when they're in our secure frenzy hospitals.

I'll be joined in this episode by irena family as well as our special guest. Evan king. evan is a twenty eight year old chicago native who is currently ranked outside of the top. Four hundred in singles and just outside the top one hundred doubles. His current situation has led him to crossroads on deciding whether or not to pursue doubles only and leave a singles career behind after being ranked inside the top. Two hundred a couple years ago. He tells us what the twenty twenty season has been like for him and why he's not planning any event in europe or even the challenges in the us as he battles with what he calls an identity crisis. We caught up with him while. He's in austin where he moved to an airbnb for a little change of scenery. It really makes sense as we get to learn that this guy who embraces the nomad lifestyle and enjoys seeing new places from mexico to pakistan to china to everywhere in between so without further. Ado our chat with evan king art f in king. Welcome to the show. It is awesome to catch up with you hide in no dumb doing well preceding of mu on so we want to ask you where in the world you are for those not watching. You have a very interesting setup in your room. And where in the world are you currently in airbnb in austin texas of got here at the beginning of the month and yes you can see on under a bed on the bottom part of a bunk bed right now. That only has a top and two other guys. Here migrate lakey buddies from michigan. And i was the last person in the house. So i ended up with this room with the upper bunk died and i did not really wanna sleep up there because honestly appear in the middle of the night i gotta go down you going down the ladder by get like my head. My hit the top. You have all this cushion it inside. Put the mattress on the floor so it was kind of my set up the next like monkfish. So it's cool though so you pretty much just decided on austin because it was. It was literally dislike a new city. That i haven't really explored none of us really explored so i was playing a bunch of little exhibition matches saddlebrook out there with mike ready in than that ended in both had nothing to do his lisa ended. And then i'll song to one of my great friends from michigan and she lives in new york and he's working remotely till next summer in like the same kind of boats so we were talking about like lincoln up somewhere in those perfect. 'cause i admire silverlake china's my buddy you out so yeah. We landed in austin like honestly. My vote was west. Because i haven't spent the decent amount of time west like in my life about a pretty cool in all these amount of people out there but i mean everybody raves about austin this a great first impression on these pretty outdoor active city. It's been cool So yeah we. We ended up in austin and actually got kinda lucky. 'cause there's a money term next week here too so i get to like hopefully pay for the airbnb that way. You're getting to do stuff that you probably would not have imagined you're doing this year but you're still training and practicing and competing. Yeah it's it's such a weird balance. Because i was thinking about it before i went to austin. I don't think i've spent that long time in the same time zone. 'cause either in florida west virginia from march until the end of september. Like since probably young junior tennis. So it's like very very slow down gone through different phases of of things to keep my mind occupied. Keep my by occupied. Go through like little waves of being motivated not motivated so gotta stay in shape regardless plans score so not think for the most part of ghana pretty good balance but yet super weird. Have you picked up any new hobbies and stuff like that. You talk about being entertained off court and stuff like that so Started a couple books. That i haven't finished There's a koby Biography not abide a biography on him. That started in another one. And it's not a new hobby. But like i'm really interact battles. It's like the most random thing. So i will go on just sprees of dislike watching rap battles and it really entertains me. Because i was like either crazy disrespectful. Or they're just like crazy creative like how they dislike mess look at english language like pick it apart and stuff now knows kind of cool so i think that's what i'm currently into right now but honestly we have this conversation next week among change.

Full of people that looked like me. Where so many people were born my color. Nobody has any feelings about The. Only thing that's hard about the Spanish though is that I have so little to go on. I never been to the continent but I was taught wasn't true and what I see most often the beautiful savannah's the crowded markets tribal celebrations. Gorgeous. But it doesn't say much about what it's like day to day. I need a little snapshots of life and Africa's stories that are small enough ability. And storytellers know what they're talking about.

Painted the African Kingdom of my American dreams with people that felt like cousin struggles and triumphs I know so well, Warrior women I wanted to be. And Beyond the his throne May he rest in? Come. I read everything about making Black Panther when it came out and I learned how they relied on African storytellers to build their fantasy of Kanda. So I followed in their footsteps. In parts of West Africa, these storytellers called Gross. They put on these live performances where everyone will gather around outside and the grill the storyteller will stand in the middle of a circle. And they'll tell stories that path along values and traditions. The people understand the context that they've been born into. Their world builders. PUT US FLASHING This summer.

My Name. Is Fiona. So the first trip that comes mayes the trip that. I took back to Ghana and Brandon with me when he was thirteen, my son who's twenty one now.

In the city and They were very accommodating waited on his literally hand and forms a little strange because he had like cokes and maids, and all I'm like, no I can do. My own dishes.

Remember your parents and then we rented this big SUV gotta drive when into the townships other little villages.

A bunch of new amazing episodes were exploring big ideas about reinvention making amends and the psychological effects of climate change our first show drops March thirteenth. Please join me. This is one A. Returning now to our conversation with Jacqueline Woodson and her year of return experiences Jacqueline you write about how you experienced a kind of double consciousness. While they're belonging at at the same time not belonging and I think you started to allude to this a little bit a minute or two ago. What does that feel like to you is is that feeling? That that you feel can be reconciled. Yes I think it is. I think it is feeling I have here in this country right. I am of this place you know I. I'm from this place but I really I'm in this place but my I of this place I don't know I'm very American in so many ways and in so many ways. Not You know the same with New York. I grew up in the south until I was seven. And so those imprinting years. I'm very southern so I feel kind of outside in New York all the time and so getting to Ghana and seeing everyone who is my complexion Or darker or a slightly lighter Walking like ideal you know our language the way we speak is different but the openness is the same feeling very southern to me And then it not being my place. Right it. It's kind of For me in the end it did feel like yes. This this is this is how I will always walk the world and yeah in more than one place. Talk a little bit more about that. That two feet in two places or feet in multiple places feeling because it's fascinating you know it's a it's a it's it's at once Kind of A. It's a gift right when you look at it. Positively if I didn't have feet in so many world I wouldn't have been able to write thirty two books. I mean you know it's it's kind of it. It's what bills empathy is how we begin to understand And at the same time I do wonder what it would be like to exist solely in one place in one body as one being and that's never been the case for me So so going to Africa. I didn't go to Ghana. I didn't feel like I was going to be completely outside of simply by the color of my skin I knew that some part of me was going to have a belonging there But I didn't know that I would at the same time feel This outsider ness and where the outsider would play out. It played out You know of course in economics. It played out in language. I feel like I can't I played out. I moved differently than a lot of African women even though my daughter moves like the African women so that was all very interesting to me. Will you said that there isn't enough space in the New York? Times travel section to to capture the enormity of this experience. I hope we've gotten closer in this time we've spent together On the air. But if you could go down a road that you haven't explored yet in writing about your trip to Ghana or your children's experience or your experience with your partner I don't know of. What do you think that would be I think I would. I would want to go down the road of my children who identify as black and biracial right. You know. They always say we're black and Biracial to to make sure both of those parts of themselves are are acknowledged. And what does it mean to be black and Biracial in Ghana What it mean to be completely immersed in an African culture for say five years ten years. What would that look like for them? I think there are so many roads and I also think I want to hear other voices I wanNA. There's so much room to write about this to write about our experiences. As African Americans Caribbean Americans and as Africans So so I have the roads that I would like to explore but I also am always so interested in the voices of other writers telling these stories. We've talked on this show before about how American journalistic views of Africa can be so very narrow you mentioned before the idea that Africa's one thing of course it isn't. This sounds like an opportunity to broaden that perspective make it even more granular than before to get more voices talking about the personal experiences visiting Africa exactly. Well we talked a little bit earlier about what you really wanted to get out of. This trip was some truth. I I suppose that's what writers are always looking for whether they're fiction or nonfiction writers. At least I hope so. I think the truth ultimately is what you're looking for do you. Do you think you got it. I think I got some of the truth. I think there are many of them and I think each time I go back. I'll get some more but for me. I feel like the truth that I got was that I am of that place to and And that matters that that I can go there. And and even with the sense of belonging I felt to also feel that sense of belonging and next time to go and explore what that truth means and how that truth manifest with more time there with knowing more people with doing more stuff So yeah you're it's you know I think as writers we're constantly searching for the truth that matter to us and by extension matter to a greater good in a bigger world and I'm I'm at the beginning of him and I think sometimes that that sense of belonging that you get a little bit of a sense of your first time you go to a place that can give way to a sense of longing to go back and be part of it and maybe that's in your future to Jacqueline Woodson author of Brown girl dreaming and read at the Bone Jacqueline.
