Naomi Osaka Offends Swahili Speakers
"Naomi Osaka, the kind of player who is just a real big pain in the ass. I like to fire up cross court shot of her face, Naomi Osaka announced last week that she's partnered with LeBron James company Spring Hill to start a new media company. A media company from the girl who doesn't want to talk to the media. And you explain that to me? Naomi Osaka expressed the hope that it would produce TV shows and documentaries and branded content. Again, this is the fraud who doesn't like attention thrust on her. This is the woman who had to step away from competitive tennis for her mental health sake. She said, and then she went on to do a few magazine covers and went to the Met ball in New York City, dressed like a fucking peacock with feathers in her hair. Don't believe anything she says. Now get this, the name of a new venture, she called it Hannah kuma, what she said means flower bear in Japanese. Hold that, hold it because it didn't take long for the Japanese Haitian Osaka to discover, oh, that phrase has another meaning in Swahili in Swahili. I'm not even sure why we care about this Swahili content, but it's why Healy it translates to women with that of a giant. Let's not forget there are 200 million people who speak Swahili, which is the majority of East Africa. So dozens of losers on Twitter in Africa piled on her and they begged her, they urged Osaka to this reconsider that name. They called it offensive. Of course they did. Of course they did. Everybody's offended now by something.

"The battle and the involvement of the Haitians. He said, this moment is not going to be on some obscure square. It's not going to be some square that's off the beaten path. He said, this square will be in city market. That's an open air market that gets a lot of foot traffic. So that way everybody that comes to Savannah, they go in the city market. They're going to at least see this money right here. They're going to see this moment of African men who fought during the American Revolution that some old walk over there, they can say, well, what is that right there? The Haitian monument has 6 individual statues of soldiers, all elevated on a stone platform. Four men aim rifles, then there's one man on the ground holding his chest as if he's just been wounded, and the last statue is of a small boy to the side who's beating on a drum. When the statue was unveiled, Jamal was surprised to find that he recognized one of the faces. And so that long, but I not look and see myself on the monument. Most of the figures on the statue are nameless soldiers. Their names and faces lost to history. So sculptor James masten used some of the men involved in the statue's creation, for inspiration. So for me, that was an even more personal right now. Now, it's not just about me showcasing what my ancestors have done that after people have done what they got to tell them that the fullness of America history that now am I saying, this is even more personal because that's me up there. Jamal's face is on the soldier. That's the furthest back. Now the one that's in the back, with the rifle pointed in the air, that's the historian. That's the one who has to tell the history. And here he is telling me the history. Like I said, most of the soldiers on the monument are nameless, except one. The drummer boy. Sculptor James masten said, this drummer boy represents the youth who must live on to tell the story, and he's also based on a real drummer boy. Unre kristof, who was only 14 years old during the siege, but would go on to become the king of Haiti. A couple months ago, we actually did an episode about Andre Christophe and his famous fortress, the Citadel. If you want to learn more about his story. After the siege of Savannah, some of the Haitian soldiers make it back to Haiti and later join Hades own fight for independence. But some of the soldiers who went to Savannah wouldn't be so lucky. There's a ship of them that I captured by the British. And guess what? The old man, I take him to Jamaica. And they take him to sugarcane plantations and America. They've now been making back to Haiti. They're not put in captivity in Jamaica. So here you go, some man who was not sending out here to fight for the freedom of the United States and others would make it back to Haiti, but guess what all this will not make it back and they now are sent to Jamaica and then now on plantations there. I just want to let that sink in for a minute. So, recently freed Haitians who came from Haiti to fight for an independence that wasn't even theirs. Were then captured and enslaved again. I asked Jamal why he felt the story of the Haitian assistance. The so often left out of the teaching of the American Revolution. Most of us do not know American history. We know American mythology. And so someone was like the promote, the goal of the wing history. Again, these nice sanitized versions of history. And so it also not going to show some hypocrisy also because what occurs is that we don't want to talk about it because again, we don't like to, we don't like to showcase IIT plus proper place. But Haiti wasn't done helping the United States. In fact, you could say that without Haiti, America might be a fraction of the size it is today. You see, a couple decades after America won its war for independence, Haiti would do the same and gain its freedom from France, and Napoleon, emperor of France at the time, didn't take the loss of Haiti so well. Haiti was The Crown jewel of France's colonial holdings in. After losing his precious Haiti, he was a lot more willing to part with his other North American assets. When the Poland now loses Haiti, the pulley is despondent and May he is pissed off he ain't happy at all about this. Katie was the jewel of North America for France. So he like, I don't even care about North America. I don't even care about that. Napoleon had big goals for his North American empire, and when he lost Haiti, his dreams were crushed. At the start of the Haitian revolution, Haiti was the world's top producer of sugar and coffee, and among the leaders in cotton, cocoa, and indigo. As you can imagine, that's a lot of income loss for France. And with that income lost, Napoleon changed his mind about having this large empire that includes the new world. His vast Louisiana territory even became a lot less valuable without it also being paired with the economic powerhouse that was colonial Haiti. So Jefferson, my mind able to go do something in American history, I'll call the Louisiana Purchase. The Louisiana Purchase comes about directly from Haiti, gaining independence and Napoleon is not fed up. He don't want to have anything to do with it. And the United States will gain 14 states out of the Louisiana Purchase out of get what we know with regard to the Haitian revolution. So but because Haiti gazes at the United States is able to double overnight. So that's not once, but twice that Haitians contributed to the building of a young America. It meant a lot for me to find out about this history, my history, all through a statue in Savannah, Georgia. And that respect, I guess the monument is doing its job. If you want to visit the Haitian monument, head on down to Savannah, Georgia and go to Franklin square. And if you see Jamal, other than on the statue, tell him I said hello. Special thanks to doctor Amir Jamal tere for fulfilling his role as the historian, and sharing with me, and now all of you, the story of the Haitian monument. This.

"As the revolutionary forces prepared for a battle, a battle that would later be known as the siege of Savannah, they told these Haitian men to stay at camp and essentially do busy work. Like digging and moving around supplies. The Americans didn't want to fight alongside these men or share the glory of the victory that they were expecting from the battle. But then, the Patriots started losing. Badly. And they desperately needed help. And who do you think they called?.
The Left's Lawless Immigration Policies
"So I want to talk about three small wins and I also want to talk about a very telling admission by Mallorca himself. So here's the first win and that is that the big uproar about all those Haitians who were descending on American shores. Obviously, these are not people at the southern border. They're showing up from Haiti. And they're showing up because the estes poverty in Haiti, but there's poverty in many parts of the world. Our immigration policies are not based upon your poor, therefore you have a right to come to America. So here were the Haitians and they were basically being seen on mosque coming across the southern border huge public relations scandal horrific images for Americans. Who are these people and even though the Biden administration tried to turn the tables? Look at these Texas Rangers rounding them up on horseback cowboy style. Nevertheless, the Biden people realized this is a very serious problem, and so they began to then deport the Haitians. Expelling thousands of them in sending them back home where they, of course, belonged. Victory number one. Here's victory number two the Biden administration as I mentioned on this podcast a couple of times was getting ready was on the verge of making gigantic financial settlements to families that said, oh, we were families who were separated at the border, even if the separations were brief, even if they were temporary. Oh, they were so traumatic. Why not use to this at all? This is emotional hardship and pain. We need to be paid $450,000 each. Not even for family. Per person. And the biodiversity was like, oh, yeah, you know, this song's reasonable. Yeah, yeah, I think giving family is taking taxpayer money and giving America Mexican families a $1 million here a $1 million there so they can basically go hit the Mexican casinos. They thought this was kind of a fair settlement. Well, once again, the public outrage over this. Made it impossible politically for them to go forward with this. And so they have ended those court negotiations over these financial compensation, victory number two. Victory number three is a court victory coming out of Texas and Texas. I have to say, has been the center of the resistance to Biden's immigration policies just a flurry of lawsuits filed by taxes really by attorney general, Ken Paxton, who's been on the show, and this is forced Biden to reimpose, even though not fully Trump's remain in Mexico policy. It's even forced Biden to continue some border wall construction, which is to say to close some gaps in the wall not to build new sections of the wall which they flatly refuse to do, but at least to patch up the wall in places where they were sort of gaping holes. Now, let me turn to the statement by orcas. We have fundamentally changed immigration enforcement in the interior for the first time ever our policy explicitly states that a non citizens unlawful presence in the United States will not by itself be a basis for the initiation of an enforcement action. Now this I think is really significant, you've got a top Biden official basically saying, it is our stated policy that we will not enforce the law. If you've got a guy in the United States illegal, you know, he's illegal. He admits he's illegal. But he doesn't have other violations. He's not a gang member. He doesn't have a criminal record. He's just an illegal. Not by itself, is not sufficient to initiate return or deportation proceedings. So what we have here is a truly lawless administration in the clinical sense of the term, there is a law system says if you don't like a law try to change it, they can change the law they're using the technique of quote enforcement to say, we're going to enforce it here, but not over there in effect what they're saying is we're going to at least in these important respects,

The U.S. Southern Border Sees Migrants Enter With NO Resistance
"Regarding the borders, this was on Fox News this morning. The thing that jumps off the page to me the most is that wild situation we saw in Del Rio over the summer with all those Haitians who showed up under the bridge you can pull up that video right here. Keep in mind, remember, the FAA had grounded our Fox News drone. So we went up in a Texas DPS helicopter and we were live on the air for about 30 minutes or so trying to show the country. What was happening on the ground in Del Rio and it was just a jaw dropping situation. We were watching thousands of people literally just walking across the dam in the Rio Grande and just showing up in the United States, no resistance whatsoever and then camping out underneath the bridge. We were watching these people just walking in from Mexico, no resistance on either side, and you can see the ground video we shot as well. 15,000 Haitians ended up showing up and camping out underneath that bridge looked like a third world refugee camp at some points and keep in mind DHS secretary of my orcas, he showed up he had a press conference out there and he said he put a message out saying, do not come, your journey will not succeed. You will not be allowed to stay. He then later admitted that more than 10,000 of those migrants were released into the country, pending their future court dates. Another thing that jumped out at the page, if we can pull up this video, this was from August in the city of McAllen. This was when the city literally had to build an emergency tent compound for COVID positive illegal immigrants. The reason they had to do it is because they said the federal government was releasing so many migrants in the city of McAllen, so many of them were testing positive for COVID-19. They just didn't have the infrastructure to house them, and there was a risk of them walking around in public, so they literally had to build this tent compound in the middle of a public park, and they'll do us park to house thousands of these COVID positive, illegal immigrants, keep in mind, the Catholic charity out there had been quietly trying to house COVID positive migrants in hotels without telling local cities, that all blew up when some of them went into a water burger and started coughing on

Mainstream Media Ignores Massive Migrant Caravan Heading to US Border
"Right now there is a multi thousand person caravan heading straight for our country, right to the southern border. Between all the mainstream activist networks ABC, NBC CBS CNN MSNBC, zero, mentions on their morning show. This morning that there is a multi thousand person caravan heading for the southern border. Let's go to cut 40 build illusion reporting on how migrants are hiding in cars on trains on their way to San Antonio high cut 40. What you're looking at are Texas state troopers finding 19 illegal immigrants hiding inside of brand new cars that were inside of a train being shipped to the San Antonio area. You can see the troopers looking at those migrants panning up and down Texas DPS pulled 5 other single adult males off of this train arrested them as well. They are all going to jail as well. Again, they are not being handed over to border patrol. And now cut 25, Fox shows how many Texas has deployed the state National Guard as caravans gather in Mexico, heading for Texas, play cut 25. What you're looking at is the Texas National Guard deploying to the area in and around the Del Rio international bridge. Why are they doing this? Because they've seen that migrant caravan that's on the way to the United States as we speak. Texas governor Greg Abbott says he is not going to allow another Del Rio situation to happen like we saw with the Haitians last month. He is pre deploying resources out there as a Shoal force to say if the federal government isn't going to secure that area, the state of Texas will step up. We will fill that void, and they are sending a message to that caravan saying, you will not be allowed to enter Texas. Texas is learning from their lesson of the last lesson I should say are their mistake where they allowed Haitians just to walk right into the state of Texas with almost no one stopping

Biden Wants Open Borders Because He Wants New Voters
"The biden regime comes out and says this is all under control. It's going according to plan their plan. They're actually telling the truth because their plan is open borders as many third world people as possible to come into the country that will remain obedient democrat party voters and people on welfare. Even though that kind of calculus has been put in jeopardy. Thanks to all of you. S hispanics and latinos are actually trending more to the right than they ever would have imagined. But they're going with the strategy anyway that they want more guatemalans in nicaraguans and mexicans and el salvadorians. And let's just throw in twelve thousand haitians by the way with four hundred pregnant women who if they give birth year. That child gets a us citizenship certificate immediately. And so we have this crisis in front of us that i don't think many people here like the leadership of texas. I don't know if they signed up for this but whether they like it or not this is the question and the left is already told us how they answer this
Do You Do the Right Thing When the Federal Government Refuses To?
"Texas is now in the middle of the greatest constitutional question of the modern era and outside of the constitutional question because the constitution is a moral document. It is a moral question and the moral question that texas has in front of them is. Do you do the right thing when the federal government refuses to do what they're supposed to do. That's the question. Secretion collins over there dic- christian great event hosted by the way about a month ago. Great to see you. So that's the question in front of you and front of texas right now where we know that one point eight million people have illegally crossed from the southern border so far this year but i think all of us were kind of activated into kind of into a place that we haven't been in quite some time where we saw twelve thousand haitians in del rio texas cross illegally into our country for five hours. Dhs and border patrol sat there and did nothing now ought to be very clear. Dhs border patrol our american heroes. They are under orders to do nothing. It's not on them but the people did do something. The border patrol that decided to get on a horse get criticized by the national media of whipping these criminal haitians even though it's a rain. Or a bridle horse number on a horse in her life. So i don't know what they're talking about and they say maxine waters comes out says this is worse than what we saw in
Biden's approval slumps after a slew of crises: AP-NORC poll

How Democrats Really Describe Third-World Countries
"Henry remind you that Pew Research did a very thorough Survey and evaluation What 8 months back 6 months back or so And you see the people coming on the border there's about 20,015 to 20,000 Haitians behind the first group of patients They came to the country And most of those Haitians came out of Chile they were already refugees in Chile And many of these are the same thing In other words they're not escaping Haiti and by the way The Haitians don't even want to go back to Haiti Why is that Why is that When the Democrats talk about these countries they say they're filthy they're impoverished They don't have a rule of law the crime is through the roof You can't blame these people for leaving such a country And then when Donald Trump tells one of them it's as whole culture or a country he's called a race So I guess the Democrats are racist right But we always knew that So there's more coming And the board is still open and Joe Biden and his hacks tell us the borders secure The board is secure and $5.5 trillion doesn't cost you anything And at a single one of my generals told me to leave a footprint in Afghanistan And I graduated in the top one third of my law school class So it's important when we look at immigration To remember something You have an open border the country dies Because it's not a country anymore It's a global territory
Biden Says Border Agents on Horses 'Will Pay' for Treatment of Haitians
"Biden is still ranting and raving about the border patrol agent on the horseback. Do you realize that biden inadvertently has just sort of cleared that guy. It's been reported that because of biden's slanderous schmeer of the guy on the horse with the haitian illegals that has already been debunked by the photographer. The photographer said he wasn't he wasn't lashing anybody. He wasn't whipping anybody. He was using this range to control the horse. That was the photographer took the picture. But this guy is being targeted by the president of the united states. Here's biden himself. Threatening the border patrol again more heroes border patrol agents heroes. These are whether it's law enforcement. Healthcare workers the left is going after our heroes. Of course i take responsibility. An president but harbor. What city is you saw to see. People treat it like. They're dead horses very right in people being strapped. It's outrageous. i promise you those people will pay. They will be investigation. Under way now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences. It's an embarrassment but it's beyond embarrassment. It's dangerous it's wrong. It sends the wrong message around. The world sends the wrong message at home. It's simply not who we are. I promise you those people will pay. Are you kidding me.
The US Border Crisis Defies the Rule of Law in Our Country
"The united states constitution being the greatest political document ever written and the longest lasting constitution of. It's kind it stood the test of time because it was not written for the times it was written to stand the test of time. It was analysis of human behavior. And as we see this breaking news over the weekend we ask ourselves the very serious question. Do we still have the rule of law in america. Do we still have the rule of the written universal truth. Do we still have the rule of the eternal principle will this weekend. The head of department homeland security alejandro may orcas admitted on fox news sunday that ten thousand to twelve thousand haitians have been released into the interior of the united states. He said it could even be higher. The number that are returned could even be higher what we do follow. The law is congress has passed that we know. That's not true. May orcas saying oh. We're following the law you're not. The secretary said the administration will make determinations whether they'll be returned to haiti based on our public health and public interest authorities. But it says here that twelve thousand have now been released into the interior of the united states and twelve thousand four hundred have been given a little certificate saying you gotta go see some immigration judge. You think they're gonna come back and do that. They're gonna come back and see their the. The judge for their hearing may orcas said on fox news. I wouldn't call this a flood. Statements like that does violence to the english language to say that twelve thousand haitians is not a flood you see if we were governed by the rule of law not the rule of man we were governed by the universal principles that if you break into a country. You will be deported quickly. This wouldn't even be a question.
"haitian" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"And the haitian diaspora of course the biggest population is in the united states and enough people have come in the decade since the earthquake that in may of this year the biden administration offered what's called temporary protected status for about one hundred fifty thousand haitians without papers. What did that the migrants that i talked to. I asked them whether they knew about that. That people had gotten tps in in may temporary protected status basically means that people who were in the country didn't have permanent legal status now are allowed to stay legally and there are a lot of rumors and the migrants who are traveling because it for some of them it takes them almost a year to get from south america up to the us border so they don't know exactly what the policies are. Almost no one knew what title forty two was or remain in mexico or any of these. us border policies. They just hear things on the news about families getting through whether it's haitian families or or central american families and think that that means they might have a chance molly if the haitians you talked to hadn't heard about all these different legal and political maneuvers by the united states. Why the recent rush to get into the us. So those that i talked to you said it really was more of a push factor than a pull factor. Obviously there is the pool of being able to earn more money and send your kids to public school in the united states and live near your family members but the push factor was like some of the folks i talked to who were in chile. Said they had had gotten death threats from gangs. They stand out and they felt like they were becoming a target of the frustration of people who weren't able to get jobs or lost their jobs because of the economic conditions. There.
"haitian" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"There are a few different images that have made it out of the makeshift camp. Where nearly fifteen thousand haitian migrants have been living. There are drone shots. They showed the sheer number of people crammed together waiting to be processed their pictures of the border patrol response men on horseback seeming to violently heard these desperate humans in some way there are images to of long lines of people trying to wade into this country one after another balancing water bottles and take out bags in their arms but many journalists have been kept away from the camp itself which means what's happening to these migrants is happening in a black box so you have to understand the the the make this can't desist. It's a no-man's-land so what does that mean meaning that it is so far away from the ice to see. So if you're standing at the bridge to bottom of the bridge you're looking through Sort of offense but you cannot see anybody. You don't see anything all you see now or border patrol vehicles so you cannot see the camp. Nobody has access to it. And in fact when i as journalists walked from the mexico side to the us side we were met by border patrol agents when we asked if we could go through there and they said no you can't you cannot go over the last day or so. I think a lot of people have seen these images of border patrol agents on horseback and some of them appear to have something like a whip and their hands like. they're kind of trying to move migrants. I'm wondering if you have any information. What is going on in those pictures you know. We the department of homeland secretary. I handle my orcas. Who was del real. Yesterday was actually acts about this so he says that they are going to do an investigation into it. I was horrified to see the images and we look forward to learning the facts that are reduced from the investigation and we will take actions that those facts compel we do not tolerate any mistreatment or abuse of a migrant period. That picture that image you know when they say that a picture speaks a thousand words. I mean it may be cliche. But i think it's relevant in this in this point for a lot of people whether they're haitian or whether they are black It has triggered a lot in terms of there's a lot of symbolism and not very good symbolism. I mean listening to you. Talk about what's happening in del. Rio and how. The camp is hidden from sight. A little bit really. Got me thinking. Because i think seeing something means you can respond to it but right now it doesn't seem from outside at least that there is a lot of response. I was wondering are americans. Providing any provision for the people who've crossed like toilets or showers or food or medicine i spoke to advocates. Who did get access. Who got in one of them said i did see porta-pottys as far as my eyes could see. I've talked to people who have been inside. And they said that food is being is being provided that we've heard you know we heard reports that you know. There wasn't fooled at that. There was water. There was concerns And i think that that's what the problem is. We need to have access to these to the camp so that we can fully understand How it is structured What's going on so for instance on the mexican side. I met a gentleman. Alex who was inside and he left to come get food for his wife and child while he was out in on the mexican side. That's when he started to hear the quota Rumors that they were starting to deport patients. When i met out alex he was at the dam on the mexican side in a kuna and he was sitting on this concrete slope. And i started to talk to him and i said what's going on. And he was explaining to me that he was inside waiting to be able to get a number to present himself and his family for the opportunity to see if he can come to the united states but then he left to come get food and as he heard they'd started to deport people and for him who had left haiti in two thousand thirteen. He just could not go back to haiti. Haiti was does not an option for him. He was telling me that he feared for his life if he were to return to haiti and so he was sitting there contemplating whether or not to rejoin his wife and child or whether to stay in mexico. It's a heart wrenching decision. And i said you're willing to let your wife and child take that risk of deportation. A you not join them and he says yet but if they get deported they would have a better chance at living than i would and so. I've thought a lot about the sky. And i hope to call him in see ultimately you know. What was the decision that he made because the way he framed it was between his life and it was between this family. This man jacqueline met history is not unusual. Lots of people are facing impossible choices. But there's something else. A lot of these migrants share. They haven't been in haiti for years. Many of them left way back in two thousand ten. After that earthquake hit port-au-prince they resettled in brazil and chile. When jobs and money ran out they moved again many travelling by bus or even by foot to mexico in other words these folks have been on the move for a solid decade. So how did so. Many of these migrants suddenly decide. Now is the time to begin to cross into the us. I think that the again word of mouth that oh this port is is is open. Had mexico become untenable and we'll mexico was difficult so for a lot of the haitians who have arrived or newly arrive They were not being given papers to be legal in mexico so finding was difficult finding a place to live as difficult so mexico has been a very difficult place For for for these patients and so that desperation on top of everything and then when they left chile brazil. They spent a lot of money. I mean people have spent thousands of dollars To get rule you know. Eleven twelve countries in the region in order to to get to mexico so imagine being mexico not having any money not having any prospects for work not having a place to to to stay What do you do next. Do you go back through that journey that you just did were probably somebody in your family died or somebody in your group die or do you try to make a run for the us. If you hear that does border is open. So people heard the border was open and that is why they ended up underneath the international bridge and del real and now that they're here in the us. A lot of migrants are surprised that the border patrol is jailing and then swiftly deporting them just a few months back. The biden administration extended temporary protected status to haitians.

Lots of stories to be told and most of them haven't been including a bet. You didn't know the story you're about to learn now. Toby harnden is a former foreign foreign correspondent for the telegraph and the times of london and he's written a new book. That's just come out a little over a week ago. Entitled first casualty the untold story of the ci mission to avenge nine eleven. Tony i'm at toby. I'm gonna give you the floor. Take five six seven minutes to just tell the story and then i'll follow up with some questions. But i think this is a story you have to tell in its entirety without me interrupting. Well thank you so much. Michael great to be on the show and that's very kind. Yeah i mean we've seen this sort of tragedy in the turmoil of recent weeks we've had twenty years of war and so i think it's really important to go back to the beginning and look at the mission we had done Immediately after nine. Eleven to go after al qaeda and also to look at the man Maybe mentioning man on the ground. Who were so extremely successful And you know stories great stories. A timeless and these eight members of team was sale. is they weren't all power military's To the mckay officers there was a guy called. Tyson who's essential thing when the book was was an opec. Linguists a former professor and academic He was part of the team. Jay seaga who. Dari speaking Case officer who'd worked with the mohideen in the nineteen eighties He led the team Mike spann who was one of the time. He was a former marine corps officer. This was i mean. These were elite people They went all elite warriors. Some of them are kind of elite intellectuals. If you like on this team was was put together very short notice. Some of them badly knew each other before they go into afghanistan and they dropped into the mountains. South korea suri. I didn't know what they were gonna face And so you know. We know that the taliban was toppled nearly as quickly as the outgoing government collapsed last month. But success was not guaranteed. Plan was improvised Was lots of adaptation on the ground. they were working with abdulrashid dostam. An os beck warlord with certainly with blood on his hands. And he's four. Four the soviets against mujahideen which is by the eye on the us government at the time and they didn't know whether he was gonna shoot them or whether he was going to be that friend. I mean they certainly hope for latin. The intelligence indicates that the latter But they have to work with him. He had a rival haji Warlord the next all who was sort of nominally an ally but was also a rival. And there was you know the potential big dust up between those two groups we see. I could've been caught in the crossfire. So jay i'll see you guys had to work that They brought in three million dollars in non sequential one hundred dollar bills. So that kinda helps you know. Get people to switch sides and point people in the right direction Which was literally sort of towards mazari sharif to the north They wrote on horseback And know the saddles were built skinny. Afghans and these were sort of big beefy americans Twelve hour rides. You know they had to. You know pissing that saddles basically. You know. i mean this was pretty rough. Ready an uncomfortable stuff and you know the time we have just hundreds hundreds of americans on the ground in afghanistan instead of one hundred thousand plus we ended up with They were very much to the size. It was an afghan fights. I mean it was awesome. My of us airpower above and that was the crucial factor. Those ass strikes Instead of winning this This sort of battle but Cia was very focused on al qaeda and gathering intelligence about al-qaeda they want to kick house tiber out al qaeda out. They didn't really care about the taliban and the white house. I'm wearing the waste. Needs to get him out of the way so he gets all kinda and of course everything sort of sort of changed After this period but you also had An incredible to talk to these guys what they went through and sort of will like talk about the quiet professionals. He's guys just. They didn't wanna talk. They had to be persuaded and they should remain silence in the shadows but for for the past twenty years but you know they the sort of complexity and the danger of afghanistan we saw over the subsequent twenty years. I mean they. They faced all of it. I mean they had allies the worth kind of krizner's who shooting villages. And they have to sort that out. you know. This is afghanistan you know and everybody's got a pretty Pretty lovey tr- track record. But you know you have to work with these guys and keep them on the straight and narrow who was a fake surrender Which From from the taliban al-qaeda which which leads this uprising College i need a full outside mazari sharif and so what you really You really have that. Sort of crescendo of the book Where everything sort of came together. You had british british. Special forces sb s. You know with a g g. G general machine gums sort of killing al qaeda in industrial quantities. You had us s strikes went to stray and you have this uprising which led to the death of Cif's johnny mike spann. I'm david tyson ended up killing dozens of al-qaeda because he was in this incredible situation kill. Ob kills so you know. I'm a great believer. That the best stories are true. And i and i really feel that this was one of them. How did you learn of this story. So i was i was i was in washington dc on nine eleven as a reporter and so i was covering a lot and i very much from him but mike spann being killed and that was public pretty raffarin opposite to be made public even in death and being very affected by the words shannon spann at his funeral and she has sort of grace And then i. I was in iraq a couple of years later and somebody sets another me to see that footage of the cio running for his life and in afghanistan. I said no. I think i did and so i looked at it and it was david. Tyson He had an ak On a pistol times. You just killed all these al qaeda guys. I watched the footage. And i thought. Wow what was that. What that guy just being through what was going through his mind. And that sorta never left me. And i tracked him down I i met him about eight years ago and it turned out. He was living in vienna. Virginia in the dc suburbs. A few miles away from me. We mess it up panara brad. I think he was still serving in the cia. So he said you know i can. You know i can tell me a little bit but not too much But we kept in touch and then The beginning of last year. I got an email out of blue. And he's like. Hey toby david You know i just retired. I'm ready to talk. And so i kind of took it from that. That's awesome. thanks for being our guest. Toby harnden the book is first casualty. The untold story of the i a mission to avenge nine eleven.

You know in the old days blacks would be kept out of school or jobs or the water fountain or bus travel for being black in. That was wrong today. They're being denied treatment because they don't have the vaccine. It doesn't make it any better that some whites are being denied. Equally are as well. Some blacks can't get service. Some blacks are losing their jobs. Some blacks can't be hired not for any legitimate reason but because they're not vaccinated and that's when this fellow pushes back listen to this so you're refusing to service.

She talks about how that's become normalized doctors and nurses refusing to heal patients. The sick because of flaxseeds. For years ago. As you would've told me. Doctors would be verbally wishing their patients died based on their vaccination status or choice they made. I want to believe you told me. Nurses would no longer be advocating for their patients rights in autonomy. I went to believe you and quite frankly. I don't think i would be in a spot. I am live or during the career hand. I don't think that i would hear pierce say they wish all vaccinated people die now. I don't think i would believed you. I'm just so disgusted by the state of the world right now.

"I understand that you're asking the federal government to speed up immigration for haitians. Why is that a priority for you because you you have a lot of people who sponsored their wife their husbands bachelor this is very heavy. You have people who should be here but they are waiting on their papers two years three years so we asked to fasttrack who's people. I think it's a lot of people living with fear and it's a lot of suffering y y y than suffer row people to sponsor their family who lost everything in the country. What else do you want the government to do to help eighty right now. Well they can do something very quickly for the emergency ed. The canadian army can be very useful in the situation in an area had very remote area. I the canadian army can get there very easily because they have the equipment to do that. And there's a lot of people of haitian origin living in the country. Looking at the government is doing. What can we go there and help. There have been been a lot of concerns over the years about foreign aid going into haiti especially after the two thousand ten earthquake. Some say that it was kind of turned into an ngo republic. That resources didn't get where they need to go january thirteenth. Two thousand ten just twenty four hours. After the earthquake his ambulance disabled. We found ralph senecal treating as many victims as he could from the ruins of his collapsed. Paramedic clinic later. It's hard to believe how little progress has been made after receiving no ngo assistance or government funds. The damage caused twelve months ago. Still hasn't been repaired. I know if that money went in to the asian government that will get done this to give it to all your organization the organization this organization. They have no secure. No one his supervising so they'd whatever whatever they wanna do and hayes had this legacy of foreign intervention in its politics including from canada. So how can countries like. Canada support haiti while respecting haiti sovereignty. Well in we. What about emergency ed. And red cross around the world when there is a natural disaster they are. They're talking about rebuilding the country talking about development and i would never see give the money to read trust to do the the rebuilding of the country of the development of the country. Well escaping expose released by propublica. Npr then that that despite the red cross raising half a billion dollars they only built six homes. Yes six that sounds. Shot technology now us to speak directly to the condition the country so we went in his. You mentioned yesterday. Half of the people were living in montreal and half of the people in the were in the country in the south of the country explaining to us what they need back village this is the situation then religiousness situation. We have to listen to the population. And i think the problem of the ngos usually is that did not listened to the people ask permission. What other niece. I think i can understand the distinction between this sort of immediate emergency aid and the long-term planning for development to prepare for say feature earthquake. I guess under that context. I wonder where you make comments from francois. Odette who's on the board for the haitian canadian organization campaign. He says international support is important but it has local organization as to pass through local civil society local governance as well so international relief. International support is important is essential but he has to pass through local organization. And what do you think of that. We we think the same technique because yesterday we were speaking with the population in this. This what we meet this village have to rebuild the school. We have you know we need one. We have to build the wear for the water and this is what we need. You not meet food because we knew how full with but we need this this and that and we have to listen to them and we have to work with local organization. And i think it is very important to listen to the people so after twenty ten. I remember that there was so much attention from the media and from artists and from celebrities. They're all collaborating to raise money. For haiti that is that is not happening now. Why do you think that is not happening. Now because i think the intensity of a quick is very big but the density of the population is less. So it's less spectacular because it is in a very remote region the suffering is the same but but the fund alleviates that spectacular to the It's not three hundred thousand. People dying i would say to that. We are not the only country with natural disaster this year. I don't think that people don't want to know what is one thing that you want people to understand about the haitian community in canada as they try to process story. Well i think the first thing is like the other people the way for haiti on my goodness. What am i going to do. But i think this is the reality. We have to deal with every day. This is our geographical situation agents. The reality of richie. It's like saying for canada winter again so we have to deal with it. The thing that is very important is how can we have the country to build good houses and.

I'll like where it's like. Stop that that's all you see when you when the show haiti. Yeah i mean. I woke up sunday morning and eat my first email was from. Save the children. And it's like an image of kids in like you know what you mean it's like nah. Let's stop that shit Portray haitian people with dignity Invest in haitian capacity support locally identified Priorities Specify the project the local partners and relationships. That's huge Coordinate with or notify the relevant government ministries and local officials register with oh c. h. A. if you are You know ocha. I don't know what it stands for. But i think it's like human humanitarian response or Which works in direct support of the haitian Doctorate civil protection And these are some of the things that they that you that goes into the importance of focusing on more haitian base organizations than these you know and there are local horgan like go also to community look if if if these haitian based again avoid those big ones go to your local haitian community center organs like in your city and ask them what to do. I think that these larger like save. The children can organizations they kind of make it easy for people to alleviate themselves of guilt right so like there's an earthquake. In haiti they see this ad go cabinet. Dropped twenty dollars on here. Jimmy but if you care than i would say like do a little bit more research where you're going to get more bang for your buck. Yeah jimmy yeah you find out that your twenty bucks can put like a you know you know meals for families than they give it there. Yeah like I'm gonna after the show. I'm gonna share this. Pdf there's a pdf called You know groups that are thinking about working in. Haiti should contact the department. Emergency coordination centre. Ceo ud for the area in which they work and in that pdf. You actually see not only in what part of the country people these emergency contact people are emergency. Coordinators are located in the country. But you have their phone numbers you have their names. These are people who are organizing on the ground ready to receive supplies and things like that in these specific areas of the country. So i was like wondering like what they do and the things that they do is they serve as the coordination hub for incidents response and their facility this facility although identified by many names which you will see in the pdf provides a central intelligent arena for decision makers and response team personal Personnel to gather critical information. Coordinate response activity activities and manage personal personnel as the emergency situation dictates. They're safe location. Equipped with effective technology allows for communication with staff and response team..

"Equipped with the linguistic cultural and social know-how and they have the relationship with the people they are trusted partners And part of Impact communities who should be one one to define their own priorities and and create their future. And another reason too that you want to give to these local haitian based organization a lot of time. They are like they are so transparent. There's no guessing where their money goes compared to big ngos. It's hard to get the papers to see unless like tom. I don't know unless they put it out there and it's really well somewhere in the small fine print of their website but smaller haitian based organizations are very transparent. You see the tax numbers. You can get an idea of exactly what they're going to do with the money right you know and the barriers of helping people is is so far li like it's so much more direct because they are they speak creole. They understand how people communicate. You know right you know haitians. We're gonna stubborn okay. But i mean you don't say wanna talk about it. I mean every country are every place has their own way of speaking in their own way of doing things their own way of understanding. And it's the same thing with like driving. It's the same thing like every local area. Has the you know a a slightly nuanced culture that involves the same kinds of activities right. Because you can drive here doesn't mean you can drive in shanghai right me but you're right it's like you have to learn. Well what's different. What are the rules you know like. Do you drive left. You drive right like what is the sense of drug exhaust totally. Hear you and see what you're saying so too so again like please give to base ngos that are responding to earthquakes and also if you're thinking of helping reach out and contact departmental emergency coordination centers There's a pdf everything. I'm talking about. I'm gonna put it in the show notes. I'm gonna share it in the facebook group sharing it in my own social media just to kind of give you some examples of like local haitian base ngos at ngos. I mean are like Organs like Lobby fund haiti which is l. a. n. b. i find dot. Org website and a point of contact is shows ed pair off sounds judicious scared or focal with stands for believe phone.

Google local You know people who are on the ground who understands the language who understands the culture who understands how things work and where to go because they've been there and they've build the trust in the community with the people with the citizens so you're saying lake The most bang for your buck is not with the ngos at all at all at all It says like those an article where it says You know before sun saturday's quake. Haiti was still recovering from the tuten earthquake. The two thousand ten earthquake as well as hurricane andrew. A matthew back in twenty sixteen and now with the president's assassination last month it sending the country into this whole political chaos and while there have been some success stories of haitians building more earthquake resonance structures. The country has lacked a centralized effort to do so Said mark schuler. He's a professor of anthropology and nonprofit and ngo studies and he said haiti's government has become increasingly week while non-governmental organization focuses on their own Compartmentalize projects There's a technical knowledge. in haiti. There are trained architects. There are city planners in haiti. That's not the problem. Schueler said the problem is a lack of funding for coordination and a lack of political will from donors to organization providing eight so invest. Instead of giving it to these big ngos. And i'm going to call out like red cross. Save the children and all these kind of like you know what i mean. Big orbs Invest in reinforcing haitian capacity not only our local professionals and community based organizations are better.

"haitian" Discussed on UN News
"This is Matt Wells with you. A news in the days following the earthquake ten years ago that killed around two hundred twenty thousand Haitians. The sounds of praying shouting. Not yelling filled the streets and a sense that this was the end of the world. Well that's one of the powerful memories from survivor. Michele Montas that former UN spokesperson who just returned turned home to live in her native country when disaster struck within hours she was working with the UN peacekeeping mission Nusa helping coordinate a huge international aid effort it the UN having lost one hundred and two of its own staff on that fateful day to mark the tenth anniversary this week she spoke to News Christina Silvio one aftershock after the other the initial one was in my house and lived with I saw the walls being just cracking. We all went out to nobody. Stayed in the houses of Forego `about to three nights. I spent a fulling three nights with a group of a school children in a Catholic nuns who across the street from me and nobody will go inside buildings and dissents that listening to people praying shouting yelling with the sense that this was the end of the world and that will not can that really marked me and we'll stay with me rest of my life. We realized how many people impacted only the following shoe days. The following is that's when I was called to join minister so I was retired from the UN. So I thought and I I was glad to join minister because dealer the only one we're capable of actually playing the coordinating role to help the aid. That was pouring into Haiti. While all the infrastructure was down including the airport. How really was able to a channel that eight and distribute that it? Can you talk a bit about what it was like that first response and the rescue and the emergency response what was it like. During those first days is to get it off the ground there was at the heart of it as well as you just said. Yes yes it was. It was about digging people out of of rubbles also which way which was not easy to Haitian government was all the administrative buildings had been destroyed. There was no national palace. Government was just is functioning inside a police station and the His government could not react had no means to react and the UN was there to actually get that aid even to the where troops coming from the US from Canada from different country are just arriving but it the first responders where people from the UN troops from the UN who actually were helping to dig people out of the rubble. We're we're helping also to evacuate people had been wounded and helping the medical teams coming into Haiti to set up emergency clinics in the street. That's where people were had to be amputated where had to be then transported to hospitals. They were not hospitals was that were really makeshift ones because the real hospitals had collapsed fifty centers in hospitals collapse. That day and there was no way that he's an infrastructure. Could take those people and do you. Employ extraordinary role in evacuating. Some people. Were actually as soon as it was possible. Possible to fly them out to fly them to different places where it could be taken care of the wounded even though the UN had also itself itself been hit quite hard yes the UN was was still trying to get people out of the rubble over the Christopher hotel we lost the UN lost one hundred and two people pulled that day and the people who were from the civilian mission. We've been working in that hotel in new almost vicky few people actually managed to get Out Alive. How long did that emergency response last in terms of the organization until it became less of an emergency response and more into to rebuilding? It took a while to it took a while because even rebuilding was done on a temporary basis. I we had a tense. For the people we thought lodging then we had a temporary lodging that were built we had camps that had to be installed with water supply and it took civil civil civil months while I would say up to six months before actually you know people could be taken care of six months in which they are to be taken care of the camps to be set up the food had to be distributed. Water was a great problem. The distribution of water and Dominica. Help all these where everything was urgent. Everything meanwhile the aid was being flown in could not cog was clogged into the airport report and to get that out to people who needed it took weeks and weeks. They were number of NGOs there and I have to say a lot of them came. Would you know wanting to help but not always knowing how to help. And that's a good thing that the UN was was there with the infrastructure. The agents for UNICEF was there all the agencies of the United Nations were there within the civilian mission. They were not at that building collapsed but they were able to react pretty fast into of a helping with the water with food and with the emergency response wants. What was it like for you to go through such a catastrophe and and live through it? What does that brought you? Well I think it marked my life and is very difficult to forget it. I don't think I will ever forget it. I don't think any Haitian can forget it. Every time they reverse we like the tenth anniversary three there was a fifth anniversary was marked. People can tell you exactly where the where when he happened. They can tell you exactly what we're doing they can tell you who the lost and in what circumstances they can tell you about you know waiting for hours for your loved one to be taken out of rebels they can tell you with great precision season and I can tell you we quit precision When I got friends out when I had to go tools when I saw buddies bodies being dumped in trucks and being taken to make shift a grave? We're we're dumping buddy because They cannot could not keep track because as the bodies were coming out they had to be taken. Some weird could not stay in in rot. And these you never forget this sniffer. Is there something about human character trait. That you've learned from that experience celebrity solidarity with it was destroyed idea from Haitians. Sion's was amazing as you had people with the bear Hanes d I d trying to get people out from under the rubble. solidiarity of people from slums rushing to help a people at the university that had collapsed students. Who are better off the way international diety I think the number of people who are in the US in Canada in France or over the world who contributed as much as they could for people for the first food aid for wooder for things that were immediately needed and also the solidity of countries remember one Medical team that from Israel Immediately to in started operating in a tent in the street and Taking care of people that need needed to be amputated because they were going to be effected. It had been taken out of the rubble but they had been there seven days. Four days or more do you think today. Haiti and Haitians are better. Prepared appeared to face catastrophe of that magnitude. It's difficult to see There were some things done. Do we have shown under protection civil. which is the organism in charge of the prevention of disasters that has been very efficient? had been efficient before four. Are doing different hurricanes hurricanes and we're really enforced by support from you in deep For instance and the are better able to D- to to predict for instance hurricanes and better able to respond to hurricanes and have been better able to within the last ten in years to respond to hurricanes. But you know would it be able to face a new earthquake. I'm the true reason being that. Essentially people try to rebuild. Once the international aid stopped people started rebuilding their homes. Do we the way they could With makeshift material. Some of it with a rebel from the earthquake in two thousand unintended in those affordable and will probably collapse in case there is another earthquake. Heat is better a way that it can happen and you have hasten especially saying the the out we have another possibility of another the earthquake coming to the north of the country and people are aware. And that's that's part of part of winning the battle of making making people aware of knowing what to do in case it happens of course in something as catastrophic as The two thousand ten earthquake. We'll meet a population with even more than their abilities. People report today in Haiti then the way when the earthquake happened in two thousand and ten the different things we have gone. True have increased inequalities in Haiti of increase defin- believability of the population. So it's difficult to know whether you know he should be able to better react but at least people are aware in a at least there is a sense that you know we can even do you. Everywhere you have signed of the two thousand and ten earthquake broken churches building that had the destroyed in port-au-prince but at the same time when people see that I think the big aware that can happen again in that they have to do whatever they can to avoid it together. Final message that you'd like to say for this tenth anniversary you know it's a it's a sense of hope it sense of hope because as is a Haitian I know that He always banished no matter how hard they are hit to get up and stand up. They call it resilience. It's a word at. I don't know if I want to use because sometimes resilience means that you accept your fate in at the the same time. Hope and pride of having been a member of the U._N.. At the time it happened..
"haitian" Discussed on Pet Life Radio
"Haitian after the past is past so it can be of course it is always best to plan and dance and I had the biopsy samples taken while the pedestal that gives us our best chance at a successful cell culture under certain circumstances we cannot Bible cell run tissues taken after the tenth has passed away and on our website which is my agent dot com we have a tab that says emergency and this is for the situation where the pad is unexpectedly passed away the client didn't have a biopsy can on hand but they do want to preserve samples dead veterinarian can follow these emergency instructions are biopsy kit is not absolutely needed so they can take the samples without our kit the most important thing is the temperature of the body so once that pet passes those cells will start to die so we need a living cells to continue to be able to grow living cells so refrigeration of the body will slow down that cell death process so the sooner the body can be refrigerated the better of the bodies refrigerated within a few hours of passing away in those tissues can be viable for up to five days but it is better the sooner we can get the tissues are better chance of success so you've got about a five day window if the bodies refrigerated now I will say that unfortunately we get a phone call almost on a daily basis where are the clients in the past passed away the clients has decided they want to cremate the pet so the pet is at their veterinary clinic the waiting cremation and the body has been frozen and unfortunately that is detrimental to the tissue so that freezing can damage the tissue in just a few hours and there may be still some viability left there but if it's more than a day or so chances are those tissues are no longer viable so that happened so very often so we are trying to spread the word and let veterinarians know about this service so that they can can be aware of that before the bodies frozen check with the client see if there's any if there's any possible they might want to have this pet genetically preserve some day and then they can know to take tissue samples where the body it's rose lane Rodriguez another scenario the cat passed away several months ago was cremated maybe they have some of their Cremeans the had a lock of here that the you know slipped from the pet's body before it was cremated can that material be used for this cloning preservation process because we watch you know all these crime shows on TV where they're extracting DNA from these little bits of tissue a little bit of blood can that be used by a variety of pets so and that's another question that I get on almost a daily basis so the answer is no not with today's technology we do have to have a living viable growing cell to use as a source for cloning now you're right from the CSI shows we know that there is DNA in the running Jurassic Park two that's right that's right so there's DNA there but it's not the type of DNA it's not that old now that we need for the cloning process we hope to one day be able to clone from blood we're not quite there at that point yet but there's lots of research being done in that area and that would really change thanks a lot so reserve today with today's technology we do have to have a French cheese you one of the things that always impresses me is with the internet this podcast is what are we heard throughout the world so here you are based in Texas and people in the United States can fax samples back and forth quite easily and get that hobby or kitten popped on an airplane what happens to for one of my clients are one of the listeners I should say who's in Europe or in Asia who is hearing this going yes I want to do this for my Pat is five agent pets really the only source of cloning for pets right now or how did the how can you help them we are one of the only companies in the world that clones dogs and we are the only company in the world that Khan's cat so we do have lots of international clients or both are learning in our clinic now for pet cloning or pet DNA preservation the process is really simple even for international clients there's a little bit of extra paperwork that's involved to be able to get the tissues into the country those tissues as I said you need to stay colder during shipping so shipping from your Europe for example can take about two days and that's fine we have the client add a few extra ice packs in with the samples and that will keep the tissues cold during that shipping back to S. so so yes we can do a genetic preservation for clients who may live outside of the United States it's a little more complicated for worse is because it import permit is required so you do have to plan in advance and have those permits in place before the tissue biopsies taken back her pets it is a very easy process Mylene you mentioned that to go ahead and to initially get the biopsy and I'm sure there's going to be other fees for your veterinarian to do the procedures but just for them by agent hats aspect of it you get the biopsy E. U. culture the cells you now cryo preserve the cells I believe you said it was about sixteen hundred that's right yeah and then there's the a yearly storage fee all this goes to the cloning if you decide to do it okay I've decided I want to clone my cat this little Kitty in the whole world I know that it's going to be the Siamese twin behavior may be the same not exactly okay what kind of a check to I need to write to you so right now that the fees are quite high it's it is fifty thousand dollars to clone a dog and twenty five thousand dollars to so it is quite expensive but this is we get questions people say your can I make payments on that in so essentially with your genetic preservation in your your yearly storage fees you're making a little bit payments along the way when it comes time to cloning that cloning he is broken up into two installments so the client will pay half of the cloning fee up front as the deposit less any fees that they had paid today so this initial preservation and storage fees does get deducted from the deposit and once we have that deposit against their client goes on our waitlist so we do have a little bit of a wait list for the cloning it's about one to two months with the dog cloning before we began the actual embryo production work cat cloning because we are the only company in the world it's cloning cats that cloning weightless for cats is quite a bit longer about six months wait time before we can begin the cloning process for cats so and the client pays that deposit when we get to their spot on the wait list it will make those embryos and transfer them into the surrogate dog and if all goes well still get pregnant right away sometimes it may take more than one round of embryo transfers that usually takes just a few and then she will have a normal just station I normal pregnancy and she will nurture those puppies or kittens until they're about eight weeks old and then that's when the final cloning payment is made is just right before that puppy or kitten is ready to go home so that final happened the payment is paid at that time the cost of love is a little on the high side but that is your puppy and kitten back again with you it's hard to put a price tag on that are there any questions that people ask that I haven't asked you that you think my listeners need to know about no I think you've done a great job of covering most of our frequently asked questions I think the one of the most important things for people to be aware of it when they do you hear that high price of cloning rather than shutting it down and saying oh no that's not anything I could ever afford is to just think about having that preservation done and now because the price for cloning we hope will drop the coming years as I mentioned we've been cutting horses for seventeen years and that price has actually dropped from a hundred and sixty five thousand dollars down to eighty five thousand dollars so while it's still quite high it has dropped substantially almost in half because we've been able to improve the technology and lower our cost so we're always doing research trying to find ways to improve the technology to be able to decrease our cost and then we would pass that on to the rant so get those cells preserved because you know if you if you don't and then those prices drop you don't want to have that regret I had a cat that was my best catch ever and she lived to be eighteen years old my first cat and had as an adult and she has been gone about fifteen years now and I I always think oh my gosh I wish I would have known this technology was available fifteen years ago I just didn't know about it I wasn't in the field and she's the one she is the kind of a lifetime she's the one that I would have earned some always wishing that I would have preserved ourselves I may never have been able to afford to call her but just having those cells preserved and can get the kind of peace of mind and some hope these cells are a living part of that yet the cells are frozen and then when they're caught they're growing in the cells are still alive so for a lot of clients may not even be able to afford that cloning process just yet having those cells preserved to get some help lean one question I just thought of right now you're talking about aging as we age the process that goes on with our DNA what actually causes us to age is still being investigated so have you found that you have a I shouldn't say more viable is the hell well being success rate of cloning from younger cells different from Colleen cells that you obtain from an older animal very good question we have we don't expect there to be any difference and the corn ability or via elodie as cells taken from a pet when they're young verses when they're older and as you can imagine most of the cats that we are cloning are older cats you know that's when we think about that scene there think about the end of their life and what's going to happen in the nets when we think about having those cells preserved so the majority of the pets are those older and and you know what we're seeing from those older animals is not any different from cells that would be taken coming on because who knew when they were two years of age at that this was going to be the best pet that you ever had you're not going to know until all this and they become that mature Pat that's right yeah well my guess is bin Mullane Rodriguez client service managers provide Jim pets in equine based in cedar park Texas lane thank you I have learned a tremendous amount today I know that my listeners have also.
