Fawn Weaver: A Woman's Self-Made Journey
"My father when he was alive, But I'd still tease my mother that we were his their pastors, guinea pigs and so so pretty much because they came from being in the entertainment industry with wild parties and sex and drugs and rock and roll and all the rest of that stuff, And then you come into this Southern Baptist. Type of situation like out of all of the denominations to choose they chose Southern Baptists. By absolutely would not listen to anybody, Thea, unless unless you could actually make the argument to me as to why what you are saying is correct Or why what you are saying I should do? I would not do it. And so I had authoritative parents. Who said what? You should do it because I said to doing Oh, yes. Oh, that's not gonna work for me. I'm going to need you to tell me the thinking behind why you're telling me to do What you're doing. So needless to say, I bumped heads with my parents more than a little bit and it really came to a head when I was 15 years old and I left home and I left home and I moved in with some folks that were in the projects an area in what's called Jordan Downs, so They're sort of two projects. Main projects. One was home of the Grape Street Crips, which is where I was, and then across the way was Nickerson Gardens, home of the Bounty hunter bloods. And so I at 15 years old move into this environment, not really knowing anything about it on Lee knowing that these kids at high school they had parents that let them do whatever they wanted. And I wanted freedom. I wanted to make my own decision. So I move into the hood and realize very quickly Number one. The hood has ah lot of cockroaches. I had never seen those before. But the second thing was, I realized very quickly. How I did not fit in. And I did not fit in it for a couple of reasons, one of which my my grandmother is from Germany. My grandfather was fighting in World War two and he was stationed in Germany. My grandmother is a blond hair, blue eye woman growing up under Hitler's regime who does not see things the way that Hitler saw them, obviously, because she fell in love with my grandfather. She couldn't speak English. He couldn't speak German. And the entire time they were alive. Neither one of them could explain how in the world they got together when neither one spoke the other's language. And so they got married. They had my mother and my mother is very fair skin as as a result of that relationship, So then I am not fair skin, but I've got, you know, bright green eyes and light colored hair. Andre. And so when I moved into Jordan Downs, I didn't realize I look different. But I was at a concert at in the projects one day and literally the guy from stage. He's rapping and I'm enjoying And he looked me dead in the eyes with all these people around, and he says, we have a half breed in the house. I didn't even know what a half breed wasps and I'm looking around and everyone's looking at me. And it was a very pivotal moment for me because I realized, OK, I don't I don't fit in, and I did not realize I didn't fit in. So I'm in an environment where I'm surrounded by African Americans, but realized they didn't see me. As fully African American, and that was an interesting lesson. So I go from there and I go and I stay with another person who I had met through school similar situation. And then she had a abusive boyfriend who came over with a knife one day so that didn't work out. And so I moved at the age of 17 almost about to be 18 and to a home called Children of the night, But I didn't fit in there, either, because Children of the night a specifically a homeless shelter for people who were prostitutes and people have been trafficked and things of that nature. And so I'm in this environment because it's the only place that had a bed for me. And rather than go back home, where I would, you know, go toe to toe with my parents. I really wanted to set out on the life of my own. So I made that decision. But Children of the night when you turn 18, you must move. And so a soon as I turned 18, I moved to a place called Covenant House, which is an amazing organization for kids who are 18 and older who find themselves homeless. For whatever reason, there's no judgment, so we're all in this. This location, Covenant house and they had a program where it's set up where you go out every day, and you look for a job. And you come back. And if you get a job, they hold your money for you. Basically in a savings account to allow you to say for your own place, which I absolutely loved. There were two things that I discovered. While being at Covenant House number one that the current theme of I didn't sit in, and I did not seem to be the same as the people around me. And I learned that on my first day of being there, we all had to go out and look for jobs. And so we all went out. We look for jobs. We came back and we sat around this sort of campfire and this I mean, this is not a small organization. This is over 100. Kids that are, you know, 18 to. I'd say early twenties were all sitting around at least 100 of us and everyone is talking about their challenges. Of getting a job that day and how they were able to get a job that day, and I literally sat silent and the reason I sat silent as I went out to get a job, and I came back with four and The second thing that I discovered is in my relationship with money. I didn't care about it other than to have the ability to have to be able to be free and to have my own place and things of that nature, so I saved up money. Very quickly and was able to move out because every day I went to multiple jobs, and I saved my money and I went out. I was able to get my own place and to begin Living my own life. But that was my road through my teenage through my teenage years, and then I started my own company. After saving money and working multiple jobs rather than going and working for someone else I realized so far I have not been like everyone else. I've been a leader and every single situation I've been in since I was a kid. I think this is the way I'm wired. And so I started a PR And special events firm and not surprising because of the circles that I was in that when I did special events. There was usually some type of celebrity involved in it. And so in that regard I definitely had a a head start. In that I also beat my office was actually my father's office in Pasadena. He wasn't using it, and it was just sort of a vacant office. I said, Hey, I'm going to start a business. You're not using this office. Can I can I take it over for my own company? And so that is that is what I did, and that's how I began. I was quite young. And like most young people, you don't know what you're doing. And so you're going to fail a few times before you actually get it right. And that instant I hired I think I think I 10 people working for me before I was like 20 just absolutely absurd. And so I've I've learned how to do things better to say the least, leaving home so early and to really fend for myself. It gave me a I think it underscored the confidence that I already had. And I don't think that that would have happened if I had gone the normal route of staying at home until I was 18 or 17 and going to college and four years in college and And going that path. I don't think that the way that I look at life my optimism in looking at everything and saying no matter how difficult things are, they can absolutely get better and they will get better. And I know this because I've been there and so having that background I think allows me to be My husband refers to me or when he's describing to me to other people, he'll He'll refer to me as unflappable, and I think that that comes from that upbringing and everything that I saw once I left home.

Airliner Hit By MANPAD!
"So i wanna tell you about an airliner a airbus. A three hundred guinea hit by a man pad. So you're wondering probably wondering what is a man pad that is a man portable air defense system. mp a day that's Looks like a bazooka. It's a shoulder. Mounted sam surface to air missile. And it can be carried by antibody. Because it's not very heavy and has a three pound warhead now. Three pound warhead. Doesn't sound like he'll do a lot of damage what it can knock a big airplane out of the sky now when i was in vietnam We were called. Destroy la back. Then the sa seven and it's picked up the name grail also but in russia they still call it destroy. It's a russian Device and back then. It was heat-seeking only work only hit your airplane from behind what we were would home in a basically on a heat source which typically is the exhaust but now they have a new version of the strella which can home in on an airplane from the front. Also so here. Is this eighty three hundred Taking off from iraq going there. They're headed toward took out from baghdad. Headed toward bahrain and a three man crew of was seen firing one of these mad pads and it struck the airplane. There's a picture in our our in our Web page of what. It looked like after that airplane got struck it was struck in the left wing and fortunately it was right after takeoff so the left wing fuel tank was full so there was no fuel air vapor in the tank because if they've been vapor that would have been highly explosive but it was bernie and The missile in addition to punch a big hole in the wing took out the hydraulic system. So now the the crew is flying this airplane with no flight controls. They're doing like what united airlines flight to thirty two did. They're using differential thrust to manage the the the altitude the heading the airspeed. They're using that to fly around and try to come back and land back at back at baghdad and it took about ten minutes for them to get back around now. The flight engineer on this flight was doing a magnificent job because if the left if the source of fuel to the left engine had run dry. They wouldn't have been able to control the airplane anymore. They needed all of their engines for differential thrust. They needed both engines to be able to to operate so that they could maintain directional control. So he's constantly monitoring the state of fuel in the left wing when the state of fuel is leaking out dramatically. And he's using crush meeting to get fuel back to the other engines so that they could continue to power both engines so they brought it in. They made a landing. They didn't incredible job made landing. They were not able to control the airplane. What's it was on the ground than it went for. Like a thousand feet off the runway. But but no one was injured. The airplane was substantially damaged and it eventually was scrapped. So why do i bring this up. Well man pads are available everywhere They ever virtually every country where there's any violence you will find that. There are men pads. If you look on on wikipedia you'll see a list of countries where there is is documented documented. Proof that they have man pads somewhere there and all it takes is one person who's been very briefly trained in how to use it. You turn it on. Turn the machine on and you're aiming at an airplane and squeeze the trigger. That's basically it and so you could be. You could be at risk especially when you fly. Overseas special show fly to third world countries. You could be at risk of a man pad anywhere you fly. So that's something to think about a three pound warhead. Doesn't sound like much but it can do serious damage in its knocked airplanes. Who even back. When i was flying at four as there was a foreign. My squadron got out of this guy by by estrella

Ancient Dogs Had Complex Genetic Histories
"Dogs were the first animals to be domesticated stuck with us as we changed lifestyles from hunting gathering to farming to city living. The dog is a species that is intimately linked to hyun history. Anders bergstrom a post. Doc at the francis crick institute in london. He and his colleagues studied the genomes of twenty seven. Ancient dog bones dug up around the world. They found by eleven thousand years ago. We see the dog to start to diversify united kalihi so we find evidence of at least five major lineages of dogs already at this time. Dog remains have been found in europe asia in the americas in a pattern similar to help. Humans moved mixed to a large degree. The history of dogs dog seems have been shaped by human history. So like the reflecting. How what you must moved. They would have brought her dogs with them. Ancient humans clearly found dogs to be very useful in the arctic. Evidence at sled. Dogs actually emerged very early on people. Use them for the purpose of leading perhaps as early as ten thousand years ago. A few modern breeds like the african basenji new guinea singing dog or australian dingo are similar to one of the five ancient lineages most other modern breeds derived at least in part from european dogs which came to dominate dog genomes. Back for five thousand years ago. There's a great diversity of dogs in europe but at some point there was probably a single population that expanded in basically replaced other populations in europe. So this was something that we did not predict sunday. You couldn't really see just from studying. Archaeology look the dna with all this diversity. In the past that is not represented in present-day dogs. The study is in the journal. Science where you'll find maps of dog migrations over time one odd finding about eleven thousand years ago it looks like dogs. Spread more widely than humans did does actually opposes. We don't understand. So how could the dogs spread so quickly widely. We're we're not aware of any human migrations. At this time that could have facilitated this spread of the dog but some of it spreads very quickly to two human groups all across the world perhaps because he was a very useful thing for his early human together. The groups humans were also useful to dogs prehistoric. Petco didn't exist so dogs. Probably humans did and is human started to form oath species quickly adapted to digest more grains. The number of copies of a starch digesting gene in both humans and dogs increased in the generation following the invention of agriculture. Yes oh that. That's a very striking example of convergent evolution between humans. And dogs. way it's gonna be interesting to think of the dog. As kind of a evolutionary experiment that runs alongside human history and undergoes. Same lifestyle changes that we do
Why Now Is the Time for Infrared Photography
"I have one two three walks. That i take daily in every time i head out the door. I have a camera with me hoping to capture something new and unique. These walks important because my jobs as a photographer have all been crushed by the virus. And i haven't traveled for work since march twenty twenty so each day. I hope to see something new to record and possibly share with others in lately each day. I've been disappointed. So one of my friends herald is a big fan of infrared photography and he's shown me a lot of different things that you can do with it to go beyond what i've dabbled with the years so i go all right. This is kind of exciting. So i decided to revisit. What's happening in. I are and to tell you the truth. What's going on right now. Blew my mind. It did in the me excited about my daily walks again now. The big leap that i took this time. And i'm gonna talk about a pun intended the full spectrum of photography In a few minutes here because you can start versus simply. I done that. And it's very satisfying and then there are more options and more options more options and each time you go to that next set of options everything gets a bit more exciting but in the beginning any of it is exciting. Believe especially compared to probably which you've been doing or haven't been doing lately the big leap that i took was guinea my hands on a olympics. Emt mark three that had been converted to full spectrum by kalari vision now. Kalari vision is a company There about three companies. You know three big name companies. That are doing these infrared. Conversions and kalari vision is my favorite of the three. I have a camera by them. I've talked with them. I mean these are terrific folks and they really know what they're doing and all you have to do is click on the link in the site and you can go over there in you know read All sorts of background information really understand what's going on with infrared photography learn about all the filters learn about all the cameras you know by converted cameras. Get your camera converted. I mean it just goes on. And on and i'll go into more of that right now but when i referred to kalari vision that is the company that is doing the work you know for the gear that i'm using and they provide the filters that i use with that gear so getting this ten mark three converted to full spectrum camera just opened up this whole new world for me beyond what i had experienced before with. Ira photography because by using different filters a different points in the wavelength I was able to create completely different effects for example now on i take those daily walks over familiar territory which i'm doing still right because things haven't really changed to tell you the truth. It's like i'm in a different world each day on monday. I can shoot with a seventy two filter for stunning. I are black and white photography and then on tuesday take the same walk with the i. r. chrome filter and get something completely different this delicious world of complimentary oranges in blues. So every day is new. Thanks to photography. And now i'm excited. I'm excited i'm excited to go on the walk. I'm excited thinking about okay. How am i going to approach today. And because you don't know how certain things are going to look until you actually look at them through the camera. It's like this adventure in. You have like this magic set of glasses to unlock the view into this different world. And sometimes i'm very surprised but what i see. Sometimes you can kind of anticipate a little bit. What you're gonna see but every time it is then fresh and exciting. Now this backup a little bit on you know getting started with. I are so you can start small and ease into i r or go big with the converted camera and then you know there's like lots of options in between what i'm going to do now is give you five helpful tips about. I are photography to help you. Kinda shape your approach right now anyway and then you can plot your path forward after that but kind of help you figure out where to start right now with this if you are indeed interested in it. Here's the first thing you can test an existing camera for i our sensitivity. Some cameras just right out of the box are more sensitive to the i. R. part of the spectrum then other cameras. Which is you know the i parts of the higher end of the spectrum. I have like for instance one of those. It is a older fuji film. X twenty is just a regular x twenty s a little Range finder camera. That will super popular when it was out because it was small enough to put in your pocket but you know it packed some really nice kind of professional level features in it so. I've always liked this camera. In fact i believe it was the first fujifilm's digital camera i own so one of the delights with this camera is that it also has pretty decent i are sensitivity

So you know kind of like those questions that women ask all the time one another when they were together having lunch for dinner and just like having Chai but trying to actually provide good information. So not just what they heard from someone bits and pieces and basically sort of give them some an authority on what they're hearing. So they know what questions to ask what might be normal, what's not normal and what options are sometimes people just don't have any idea what's going on what the possibilities are. So I think that's where the Guinea pig was born. And otherwise I'm a mom to two am away to my husband. Played. That's probably the bottom of the list these days. Wife mom CEO, ocular plastic surgeon podcast or what are you doing with your day. Gentlemen. And Fiona, you come to us with the background in journalism. So right I come with a background in journalism but actually pre journalism I come with the very kind of distant background as a makeup artist because I was a Very very poorly educated not not through lack of effort on my parents but I refused the educated on my father said if you went. Get an education you while Lana trade and I thought well, why not? So I had I've been a little bit around. The fashion industry as a kind of. Muddling when I was very young and I'd like the people I like the atmosphere like the whole Kinda Camry of it. And so I became an assistant to make up artist and Praia. That might my life is a makeup artist radio led to might finding myself in the corridors, Burgoyne Day and. I ran into new editor at the time. This is maybe not nearly thirty years ago. Alexandra Schulman. He'd been just been made the abstract where she spurred I was carrying my pretty average makeup work in input failure sharing.

She allowed me to come in three days a week and see if I could find a career somewhere in the magazine and on islands jettison my land on the job I lent I had a voice I wanted to use it silence right? So that's a very. Story. To to explain by the time I can't. MIAMI. I had a very, very experienced i-it. At knowing what a faith look like what I felt beechy will was because I've been around. and.

"Dogs to Exercise. And so far you know this is something that has has been a very recent intervention, but we are encouraged by the twenty six percent reduction in dog infections in Chad that we've seen so far in twenty, twenty twenty, and so while we may not have. All the answers or a perfect intervention or silver bullet just yet we are excited about some evidence that that these new interventions to target dogs might be working. It's yeah, it's fascinating I. think There's there's a lot to uncover their, which is which is really cool and so the last question that I want to ask is about you. So how did you get involved with the Guinea were medication program and I was wondering whether? You could share with us any memorable experiences that you've had while working with the Carter Center when I was doing my masters in in public health, the rollins school of Public Health an at emory university. There was a professor Stan Foster who had been a big part of the smallpox eradication campaign and one day I was in his office. We talking about something else and he said, you know I think you could do it. Do. What he's I, think you could be technical adviser for Guinea Worm. So. Few months later, I found myself signing up for a six months. contract. With the consumer education program working in south Sudan that turned into six years working with the program there, and then now in this role here a total of seven years later. And I think for me you know initially going into this what interested me was that this really seemed like an opportunity to apply field epidemiology, you're collecting data. And making decisions in real time, and it's really an honor and it's really a privilege to be part of a program and to work in places where the community has invited the program to work there with an and the governments themselves indeed had invited. The support of Carter Center and other partners in their national ratification campaigns and so I think that level of discipline and diligence that's required for everyone in the program is really incredible and to just imagine how many. Tens of thousands of volunteers and help workers around the world that have all displayed that level of commitment to support their communities to get rid of Guinea worm is is I think truly remarkable and for me as I said, has been a real privilege to be part of that. That was so great. Thank you so much. Sarah. For taking the time to chat with me about Guinea worm. It was great I. Loved it Oh. It was so great. It's how amazing that we get to interview people who have actual experience working on these things like that's incredible. It blows my mind. Thank you so much for taking the time. Yeah. It's kind of Nice that we get to end this episode on on a happy note. Yeah. It's not often that we get to do that. When we discuss diseases particularly neglected tropical diseases. Yeah. It's. It's a really think and you know we could actually make this episode even a little happier if we wanted to move we, of course, didn't episode on polio way back in was it two, thousand, seventeen I think it was our first season. I'm and there's been some new news on the polio eradication front that is absolutely thrilling. So. We now are even closer to polio eradication because as of twenty twenty, the World Health. Organization African region has been declared free of wild polio. They haven't had a single case of wild polio on the continent in the last four years that is remarkable I mean I know to hear that it is on the verge of? Is absolutely incredible. There's only two countries left in the entire world that are still left to be erotic, aided Pakistan and Afghanistan. So incredible like so close we're so close. That's very cool. Yeah. So so so is that it should we dive right into sources I think we ought to. Yes. Okay. Cool. So. I read a few things One was a couple of chapters in a book called a history of human helmet allergy by David Grove. and then a few papers that I found Super Helpful were Qr spinning and treatment of Guinea worm by. Miller in Nineteen eighty-nine. And by Taya at all twenty Seventeen Guinea worm from Robert Leiper to eradicate action and I also wanted to shout out a couple of really interesting papers by Amy more in Thomas One titled Salvage Ethnography of the Guinea worm and another called the creation of emergency and afterlife of intervention and these I thought were very interesting discussions on sort of the merit of targeted approaches to disease eradication or elimination versus like a more integrative bigger scale infrastructure approaches very very interesting papers I feel like those are really sort of important discussions to have in the context of these kind of radical campaign. So. Shout out those papers. Awesome. I have a number of papers for the biology as well. We'll post the full list of all of our sources for this episode and every episode on our website. This podcast will kill you dot com just click on the episodes tab and you can find all of our sources there. Thanks again to Sarah for the time to chat with us by Guinea Worm and also thank you to emily for helping set that up. Yeah. It was really incredible and thank you to bled mobile for providing the music for this episode and all of our episodes and thank you to you listeners for still tuning in and listening to US talk about disease. We really appreciate it. We hope this could be like a small little ray of sunshine in your September twenty twenty. Yeah. Well okay. Until next time wash your hands you filthy animals..

"From programs staff in affected villages, and it requires building trust and that something that takes time and it's not going to be able to be bought with any amount of of money, and so I think the success of this campaign is really credited to the endemic communities themselves the actions that they've taken to stop Guinea worm. In their communities. So. After transmission is broken. The the second phase of the ratification campaign takes place in country, and so after reported zero, they go three years without reporting another case of Guinea worm, and then they can apply for certification as getting word free from the IC, which is the International Commission for the certification of Drunk Elias. Eradication. Gotcha. Awesome. So. You know one thing I wanted to ask was about how there are these certain of large-scale infrastructural changes that would make not only Guinea worm ratification more possible but would also greatly reduce the prevalence of other diseases, particularly, waterborne infectious diseases to how do you strike that balance between investing in the underlying infrastructure, such as like a consistently clean water supply versus a more targeted approach like the use of those filters that you mentioned that prevent Guinea, worm transmission, but not of other waterborne pathogens. Two things here won the Guinea worm. As you've said, the Guinea worm program has to remain targeted on Guinea worm disease in order to be able to demonstrate success. But at the same time, the program is training and developing a group of volunteers and health workers who will be prepared to provide other health services. Once Guinea worm is eliminated in that country. And in some countries. Seen that these health workers and volunteers have gone on to be involved in in programs, the river blindness or coma control, and some places they even been absorbed into the National Ministry of Health Helps System. Once Guinea worm is gone. So they that's one good example of of. The. The. Effects of campaign that are beyond just the targeted disease eradication and the other thing is Guinea Worm because it was is a waterborne disease. The presence of Guinea worm were in endemic. Guinea. Worm endemic communities has been an opportunity to leverage access to safe water, and so the Guinea worm program in many countries has been able to work with ministries of water and UNICEF and others to prioritize certain villages or locations for provision of safe water because Guinea, worm is an indicator that safe water is is not present in that location. Gotcha. Okay. Yeah. That makes a lot of sense. So throughout the history of the program, there has been an absolutely incredible amount of progress made towards ratification. So for millions of cases in the nineteen eighties to just like you know dozens in the last few years. So can you bring us up to speed a bit with the latest numbers and especially the biggest hurdles that remain fellow as you've said, since nineteeneighty seen a ninety nine percent reduction in cases, which is phenomenal. So said twenty one cases so far in twenty twenty which is a fifty six percent reduction. Compared to the same period in twenty nineteen at at this point in the campaign, really a biggest challenge is transmission in animals and mostly in domestic dogs in Chad and just to give you a sense of the numbers in twenty nineteen, we had almost two thousand infected dogs that were detected globally and only eleven that were detected outside of Chad. You know we've talked about Guinea worm being transmitted through drinking infected water, but we also have some evidence that dogs in particular are could be getting infected by eating aquatic animals or aquatic animal waste that contains infective larva. And so as tackling the problem with dogs we've had to think outside the box a little bit. And try to Taylor's our interventions to better target dog infections, and so the program is also working with the communities to kind of figure out what works best in each location, but to provide supplemental food to the household so that to feed the dog with and then also access to veterinary care and good access for the.

"Emerging from the body and then also during the healing process, and particularly if there has been a a secondary infection associated with the emergence of that worm and so this disease is something that was debilitating communities and they're even parts of of West Africa where it was called the disease of the empty granny. And so with. Simultaneously, we're having the success of the smallpox eradication campaign in the late nineteen seventies the global community was looking for what might be next, and so now you have Guinea worm disease, which is devastating community, and it's also a disease that potentially meets the criteria for eradication, and also there was an assessment done by the World Bank where they determined that actually the cost of Barack vacationing campaign would be less than the costs that are associated with the socio-economic impact of not radically. Guinea worm and I think that's a critically important part of that consideration and there's also there was also sufficient funding and sustained political will, and so all of that factors and the devastating impact of getting on communities That's how it was taken on as as the next disease. To try to eradicate. When we talk about setting up a surveillance system to address Guinea worm, we're talking about two phases of Guinea worm radicalization. The first is breaking transmission, and then the second is certifying a country as Guinea worm free. So currently, we've gone from over twenty one endemic countries in Africa, and Asia in the nineteen eighties to five. Now, we have South Sudan, Mali if opium Chad, an goal that remain endemic for Guinea worm. and. They are still working to break transmission. And so endemic.

Populations almost seven, hundred thousand, and all of it is from mid Polk County north. So it sparsely populated area that's made up of cow pastures. Orange Groves beautiful lakes, and they very very low crime rate in the frost proof air. They said three arrests made one of the best kept secrets. And one of the safest places to live any place in the nation get to it, but but all of that came to a crashing halt. On Lake Street, he rode. When we found these? People are victims massacred literally massacred. We thought my goodness. What could have happened there? Will we know now? I'm going to introduce you to the people that were responsible for that that I'm going to give you a time line. So this is going to take a couple of minutes and you pick from it what you need. Okay here are. Hit the microphone. Head but it. Just smashed. The poster indirectly the damage, his name's Tony Wiggins. He's known as Tj. twenty-six years of age. This is Mary Whitmore She's twenty seven years of age, and she is the girlfriend of Tony Wiggins. and. This is Robert Wiggins. He's twenty one years of age. And he's the brother obviously to Tj. But. Let me stop for a minute. Mystery on Tj. TJ someone who his criminal history should shock your conscience. It does mind. TJ started to be arrested when he was twelve years old. He is currently only twenty six years old. TJ has two hundred and thirty. Felony Criminal. I didn't stutter. Two hundred and thirty charges in his arrest history. Fifteen convictions.

But the local tips that came in that we're filtered and there were hundreds that came to us. The! Predominant information we got was look at Tj wiggins from frost proof. It's not that they had any idea that he did it. So it looks like this guy is just the worst student frost. And Bad habits TJ wiggins. He's usually responsible for this stuff. Up the other two don't have real big backgrounds in terms of arrests, but apparently they were involved in this to remember there were three people out fishing and frost proof these friends they're all found beaten badly, and then killed obviously gun point and the father was of one of these people on the scene hearing his last words, so maybe that was something that led to this. You Look at the Florida statutes. As. It appears with criminal conduct. He's got some arrest history. Everything from burglary and theft. To aggravated battery. To resisting law enforcement officers to battery on law enforcement officers to battery on people that are sixty five years or older, the elderly. There's got a long history. I'm going to stop this here. Keep an eye on this during the break, so we could see if they tell any more details about the time line expected three arrests in this murder, mystery and frost proof. Proof that we've been following a crazy case interesting one one of those ones. It's definitely ended up on a date line or something.

"And all thirteen mercenaries were arrested. They were three thousand miles away from Equatorial, Guinea? Around nineteen seventy, seven and GUAYMI fear of a legitimate coup became all consuming. Rarely did he travel to the capital of Malibu afraid that the bubby population there would make an attempt on his life. Instead. He barricaded himself in his bunker in Mongomo. WAYMO essentially locked himself up in the Soviet style bunker, surrounded by searchlights guard towers and barbed wire fence. Roughly two hundred of Guaymi, most trusted men guarded the fortress while he was holed up. Two hundred miles from the capital and Waymo left the duties of running. To his cabinet, which was mostly run by his family. One of his most trusted men was his nephew Teodoro Obiang and gramma. Sogo. During his time it Ingraham Aside Teodoro Obiang held many positions including the leader of the country's National Guard. He acquired a reputation for being one of the pillars of the regime of terror. But Obiang loyalty began to waver as his uncle's paranoia grew once weymouth started arresting members of his inner circle, including family members Obiang was understandably a little worried. Obiang was a lifelong military man. Having been trained by the Spanish military during the colonial period, so similar to Idi. Amin Obiang had gained a loyal following among key members of the military, especially those stationed on the all important Fernando Poo Island. The tensions finally came to a head in June of Nineteen seventy-nine. Had refused to pay members of the security service for the past several months. It's unclear if this was a blanket decision across the entire armed forces or a targeted attack at Obiang specifically, but the fact was officers were getting fed up. So Obiang sent some of his officers including his own brother to Mongomo to negotiate. When they arrived and made their demands, the fifty five year, old president for life was irate. He responded to their pleas by having all of the. Shot Including Obiang. Brother Word got back to Obiang. He was overcome with grief. He never imagined that his. Whom he had been so loyal to would execute his brother. But GUAYMI clearly didn't care about familial bonds, not anymore fearing that his nephew was starting to become too powerful in Goma or the Navy to attack for Poo to make sure Obiang, soldiers stayed in line. Unfortunately it was too late. The bulk of the military already believed that Ingraham had lost his mind. Most of the Navy forces switched over to Obiang. Side and Waymo was left with only a small cadre of loyal men, not nearly enough force to hold onto his power. On August Third Nineteen seventy-nine Obiang went to the capital, and announced that his uncle Francisco must see us. Gamma was no longer the leader of Equatorial Guinea. Instead, the Supreme Military Council with Obiang as its future president was now in control of the government. Obiang then ordered the military to advance on Mogoma to arrest his uncle and grandma, and his small group of loyalists resisted for the next few days, but in Goma realized that if he stayed, he would be executed, so he fled into neighboring bond with a couple suitcases full of foreign money. Two weeks later on August, eighteenth and Waymo was captured in the forest and sent to Malibu to await trial. His reign as leader of Equatorial Guinea was officially over. The Supreme Military Council made up of both Fang and bobby people decided that instead of exiling and grandma or throwing him in a psychiatric hospital. He should be allowed to stand trial. On September twenty fourth and grandma and ten other lieutenants face charges of genocide embezzlement of public funds, Mass mass-murder, human rights, violations and treason. As the charges were read, and the evidence was brought forward, and Ma and his men denied everything. Of course it didn't convince anyone. Whenever a defendant denied a specific. The tribunal would turn to the audience and asked if there was a witness who had evidence against the accused almost invariably someone did. In a twist that shocked almost everyone in the courtroom and grandma's men all turned against him blaming the dictator for everything. In gamma defended himself, insisting that the other men were acting of their own volition as he put it. I was the head of state I was not a prison, governor or prison guard. This was not just a way to deflect blame onto the other accused some of whom actually were prison guards. It was also job at his nephew, Obiang who had been head of black beach prison where some of the worst torture occurred. To in Goma, the trial was a ludicrous case of the pot calling the kettle black.
