"We had now to New York to check in with Brooklyn Grange, a company that operates three of the world's largest rooftop soil farms. Mongols Henry rich Sheridan recently visited their newest farm on top of a shopping mall in the Brooklyn neighborhood of sunset park. He was shown around by Brooklyn Granger's cofounder and chief operating officer Anastasia, Cole, farming a rooftop is a real estate play as much as anything, and it's this is a pretty unusual site to walk into en route to a farm. We're in the lobby of a mall. We're looking at a Bed Bath & Beyond marquee. And kiosks selling coal oven pizza. There's a Captain America statue as well. That's what we're known for. In fact, it's a landmark on Google Maps. Head over here to this elevator bank. Even more rustic. So we just stepped out of a very polished elevator bank with a sliding glass door, and we're looking at a bed of perennials. This is an incredible portion of New York City's upper bay. We're looking straight away at the Statue of Liberty. We can see quite a bit of the ports of New Jersey and Staten Island. And then as we make our way down to the west side of the farm, you'll see all of Lower Manhattan and the skyline. It's really quite something. Before we even discuss the roof, it's worth noting that we are on lenape land. This was an incredibly rich and valuable piece of lenape earth, and we consider that as we steward and cultivate this section of New York City. So this greenhouse is was a huge undertaking for us and our first foray into hydroponic growing. We had previously grown microgreens in soil in small hoop houses at our other locations, but this greenhouse was a massive investment that we made to increase our year round growing opportunities. So we do have quite a number of fans in our greenhouse because on a day like today it's so sunny. It really warms up in here. And of course, the humidity levels tend to rise. So traditionally, hydroponic growing, greenhouse growing is controlled environment agriculture or CEA. And that's really about controlling the temperature, the humidity level, and your nutrients in your soil or in your hydroponic or aquaponic or aeroponic growing medium. So yeah, again, these are the sounds that you hear. When growing in sort of less traditional spaces. And there's some herbage popping off in here. What we're looking at. Yeah, so we are surrounded by a sort of tables that are covered in flats of mostly pea shoots. These pea shoots are sold via a retail market. This space used to be filled with microgreens for our restaurant accounts. Microgreens were really a priority for us as we served. And here come here come the fans. Our business used to service about 70% of its harvest. So anywhere between 70 to 80% of our food was being sold to wholesale customers mostly restaurants mostly in Manhattan. And that's changed significantly. It started before COVID, but COVID really gave us an opportunity to reinvent our model. So what you don't see in here are a thousand different types of microgreens all grown to chef specifications at different heights with different stages of growth, what you do see is a very efficient pea shoot growing operation for one large retail client, as well as some nasturtium, and then behind these tables covered in pea shoots on the left, on the right we've got the first seedlings that will be transplanted into the fields for spring quite a few onions, as well as I don't actually have to walk over there and see what we've got. And then beyond we've got our germination chambers or germ chambers, the warm, dark closets, where we put trays of seeds to germinate, and even farther, you'll see a sea of hydroponically grown basil being grown in NFT chambers for our hydro nerds out there, and again, that's a crop that's being grown for one retail client, a restaurant, and we're also experimenting as we embark upon a USDA research project on some organic hydro growing practices. Yeah, so we're walking over a bluestone pathway that is actually in and of itself a stormwater management feature. Underneath this farm is a traditional roof membrane. We love to install our farms on newish roof membranes, leak free is really the critical piece here, spoiler alert. If you're roof leaks before you put a green roof on it, it's going to continue to leak after you put a green roof on it. But for the building owner who has just re roofed their building, you're spending a tremendous amount of money. It's costly financially, but also environmentally to re roof a building. That's the perfect time to put down a green roof because the number one cause of damage to your roof membrane is UV rays. And a green roof will protect your roof membrane and extend the life of that membrane by at least four times, but nobody really knows how long because nobody's ever had to rip off and re roof a properly installed green roof. So we really urge building owners out there to consider, especially if you are re roofing your building, put a green roof down as you do that, and it's a long-term investment for sure, because green roots are not cheap to install, but not only is it an investment in your building, but it's also an investment in our environment. Green roofs, you know, one of the reasons that we started farming rooftops is that green roofs have these incredible intrinsic environmental benefits. I talked a bit about actually the reduction of sound, which is maybe not environmental, but social benefit to all of us who live in cities. But the big ones are really that we manage stormwater. New York City and many older cities that have combined sewer systems are plagued by combined sewage overflow, CSO. Combined sewer systems are processing rainfall and human sewage use and in times of heavy rainfall, the systems we have in place are insufficient to process The Rain, so we basically are venting untreated wastewater along with rainfall directly into our local waterways. It's an environmental crisis. It is hugely damaging and green roofs can really help to mitigate this issue by, you know, not completely absorbing all of the rainfall, but by holding it in reserve. The soil itself saturates, but the system underneath our soil about 12 inches of it on this farm is layers of drainage material. It can be a cup system, monofilament, small stones, sandwiched between layers of filter fabric. If we can replicate this if we can scale this, if we can implement these models in tandem with other incentives and initiatives across cities, we can start to build the cities that we know we need to build as we enter into this sort of new climate. That was Anastasia Cole. From Brooklyn Grange, speaking to Henry Reese, Sheridan..

"So welcome to our best of tool stories of the year. We start today's grand tour on the east coast of the United States. New York saw the opening of a brand new park in 2021, which stood rather uniquely on concrete stilts emerging out of the Hudson River. Monaco's New York correspondent, Henry re Sheridan, sent us this story, taking a closer look at the forces behind this odd edition to the city's public realm. A few years ago, on my first visit to the Whitney museum of American art, I gaze out of the window and took in the view of the Hudson River. A bizarre structure caught my eye. It looked like a cluster of giant concrete wine glasses, shooting out of the water. Their stems were a varying length, but the tops of the wine glasses melted together to form a continuous surface. I thought it was some kind of large scale art installation connected with the museum. But what I was actually looking at was New York's newest park and construction. The park called little island opened earlier this year. It's built on the site of a derelict pier in the Hudson River. By the standards of New York City parks, little island is absurdly well appointed. It's got landscaped gardens containing hundreds of different tree shrub and grass varieties. It's got scenic observation posts overlooking the river, and it's got no fewer than three performance spaces, including 687 seats amphitheater. The design of little island is a collaboration between the English designer Thomas heatherwick and the French American landscape architect senior Nielsen. Of the pair heatherwick is by far the more famous. He's already left a very visible mark on the west side of Manhattan in the form of vessel, a 16 story tall, honeycomb like sculpture in the middle of the gleaming Hudson yards development. Nielsen's contributions to public space in New York City have made fewer headlines. But they're much more substantial. Since 1978, she's worked on hundreds of urban projects directly, but she's also been instrumental in shaping the intellectual climate around public architecture in New York. She's contributed to books and design manuals for various city departments and served as president of the New York City public design commission. Little island fruitfully combines heatherwick's flashiness with Nielsen's sophisticated public mindedness. It's both eye popping and tastefully integrated into the surrounding environment, offering an unobtrusive sense of spectacle. But when it comes to the people behind little island, the most important is neither Nielsen, nor heatherwick. It's Barry diller, the media magnate, and multi billionaire, who footed the project's $260 million Bill. In addition to paying the upfront costs, dealer has promised that his family foundation will cover the park's maintenance for the next 20 years, making icy and Expedia chairman, Barry diller, and the benefactor of this remarkably special place seems too large. You have a crowd here with folks screaming out saying thank you, Barry. I know. It's about you can hear it right now. It's embarrassing me, but it's quite something. But it's nice to hear. Nothing remotely resembling little island could or arguably should be attempted without an enormous injection of private money. But it's difficult to look at the achievements of little island without feeling a pang at the contrast between the quality of this small, privately funded green space and the size of the parks built and maintained by the city. Many of New York's parks, especially those outside of Manhattan, are poorly maintained and lacking in basic facilities. This was the case even before the pandemic. Things haven't gotten any better since the budget of the park's department was cut by $84 million. That's 14% of its total revenue, as part of the city's response to the pandemic. In addition to being poorly maintained, parks are also an evenly distributed across New York. Poorer and less white neighborhoods are typically much less well served than richer ones. According to the trust for public land, the average park size is 6.4 acres in poor neighborhoods compared with 14 acres in wealthy neighborhoods. Little island does nothing to alleviate this problem. Not only is it located in one of the richest neighborhoods in the city, it is contained within a preexisting green space, riverside park, which stretches for four miles along the Hudson River. Dilla's gift is a generous one. Little island will be enjoyed by thousands. But those looking to build parks in New York in the future be they government officials or munificent billionaires might do well to look beyond wealthy and already well provisioned neighborhoods. My thanks there to Henry Reese Sheridan..

"Well, it's time now for a letter from New York City this week, Monica's correspondent in the Big Apple, Henry Reese Sheridan runs a much needed background check on senator Joe Manchin. Senator Joe Manchin has a positive leader that he will accept his family. Because of opposition from senator Joe Manchin. President Joe Biden has been frustrated. He's been frustrated by Joe Manchin, the democratic senator from West Virginia. The president needs mansion's support to pass a bill that would fund some really big domestic policies. Biden wants to spend loads of money on infrastructure, climate change and social programs, but to do that, he's got to raise the dash. Biden's latest plan to fund his proposals is a so called billionaires tax. Without going into too much detail, it would work by taxing the 700 very wealthiest people in America. Manchin says he doesn't like the idea of targeting these people. To expand social programs when you have trust funds that aren't solvent or going inside. You can see the job creators who contribute enough to society as it is. It's unusual position for a Democrat. I want to find out where Manchin is coming from, so I decide to research him. I open mansions Wikipedia page. I'm quickly distracted away from substantive investigation by two bizarre biographical facts. First, Manchin's surname is apparently derived from the Italian name Mancini, munchie, which according to Google Translate, literally.

"But then they forget like in the human rights violations and the the savar being trade trained by the cia and we saw and the secret police coming in and arresting in students and then torturing them to death in prison. So i think there's always there's this nostalgia because i think there's just a the decades pass and the you only see the good things. Well let's leave along finally for our panel to an item which we will cheerfully admit is an idol office conversation from earlier today which we thought would be fun to put on the air. A lesser program would would've attempted to contrive some sort of actual news hook. The question at issue is this. Is there an argument for the dedicated. If artificial capital city your canberra the islamabad the washington. Dc the brasilia. astana the. Nep your door. The whatever indonesia is going to call its new one do they foster political concentration will do they instead foster popular alien nation. We were talking about this because we were talking about. Canberra john for some reason. I a city on you will. In fact where i spent part of my childhood and i can see. How camera appeals to the australian. Sarkin that we just built this remote kind of settlement for our politicians and park the all this so they'd leave the rest of us alone but does it however necesssarily then main that those politicians will be out of touch with the people. They're trying to represent should the capital bee's mac in the be in the middle of the biggest city like it is here for example. I think that i a politicians democratic politicians at least will go to great lengths to keep in contact with people who vote for them and from that point of view. It doesn't actually matter that much whether you're looking at what a half hour flight. For example from from cameron to into sydney or an hour train ride out of central london workers. We have our parliament to Most constituencies are around southeastern. You don't think there should be a new capital johnson. Villa referral shop built somewhere in the shi'as no no current arrangements. Thanks very much but in general. I think that these artificial muscles a bit of an undeserved bad name I mean cambra Years ago this reputation of being a really boring city not not under entirely unjustified not entirely unjustified things moved on since then and i have a broad thesis that if you want an interesting city what you do is to build somewhere that looks reasonably okay aesthetically and why people are safe where they feel able to come out at night to enjoy the celtics with people have a reasonable standard of living and just let people get on with creating life clubs. Cafes whatever an incumbent in brasilia these pass laws now they've done brantly and brasilia was designed entirely by accountants. Its quays lumpy. it has no architectural merit. Whatever and yet it is. Also now deeply human is been invaded by brazilians. Who johnson in the street in mice irrespective of the fact. That was more like a lego. Cuban house. I was looking at this list of artificial capitals. I obviously i can. I know quite well. Washington dc. I've been to great museums horrendous weather. Islamabad is very boring. And i think if i recall roughtly the hotel i stayed in. There is literally the only place that has ever tried to defraud my credit card. So i think. I feel a little bit. Ill towards islamabad for that reason. Holy do you have a favorite artificial capital at all. I mean i. I'm right now. I'm kind of like enjoying the whole. Dc thing. and i must say. I know based in london but are eventually we plan to move to washington and i talked to some people and they're like oh i hate washington dc. But i really think it's changed in the past ten or fifteen years and it's become a lot more vibrant an interesting and There's a lot more things to do. And i think that's what's really important having things to do. Not just museums but fun restaurants Cultural cultural and art things to do on the we can go to the theater. Farmers markets and whatnot. So it's definitely become a much more interesting place but yeah the weather sucks. I do want to ask you do want to ask you just finally leaving aside the the category of capitals if either of you would care to name the most actual boring city you've ever visited. I do want to shout at this point to my home country where they newspaper round of competition some years ago to find the most boring town in australia. I if memory serves it was a town in new south. Wales called duga And they won because somebody wrote in said saying that every hour. We like to walk across to the petrol pump to see if the numbers have changed. I i was going to nominate a town in denmark called linda's cove Where i was sent on assignment by multiple magazine for reasons. I no longer quite recall but I went to a bar in the evening to have a drink. And i asked the bartender what people do for fun. And he replied. And i don't think he was being funded. We have a pond so so that that's nomination john. What is actually the dullest city you've ever visited. You can deal with all your own. Hate mail here okay. southall in uruguay. Which is way up all along way even for montevideo is not a very big city it's adequate prosperous of full of mice people who never do anything evenings because they're all fall too busy watching videos on on on the television where i remember my last visit there the local paper card on its front page article saying the police were called out in las might because somebody lost a cat but the cat was found again it was all right and that was the event of the night outs i do. Also i very much love propaganda local newspaper story. All what's the actual must boring city visited. This probably nobody from listening. Probably that's a tough one probably. Oh god i. i'm not even gonna go that way. How about boring cities that i've lived in i'm gonna just a nominee jerusalem and dealing with And i am. But when i say boring i don't mean boring as in bad i i mean. I just think there's a lot to do. They're in but i have to give it some love. It's the most cosmopolitan city under a million and in that regard. I really Enjoy that there's Much culture there. And i actually appreciate chaba or The sabbath The twenty four hour. Shut down much of the city. Because there's a quietness.

"Andrew cuomo on the brink. I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. I am sixty three years old. That is just not who i am. Fresh amount on the new york governor to resign after damning sexual harassment report. We'll have the latest also ahead. One year on from the devastating blast in lebanon. How beirut's creatives coping and a little later in the program we'll have a flick through some of the latest optimism. Stories with nick minnie's nick. What's on your radar today. Well there's a new highway in cairo causing some uproar and some football and urbanism looking forward to the at all that and more ahead here on the briefing with me comment wits. President joe biden has joined other democrat lawmakers in calling on andrew cuomo to resigned from his post as governor of new york. The state's attorney general released a damning report yesterday which found the governor had sexually harassed eleven women. So what's next for cuomo. And what will happen if he doesn't resign. Well let's get the latest with our new york correspondent henry sheridan who joins us now. Good afternoon and good morning where you are henry. Brian kelly on your side of the pond. remind us about the main findings of this report so this report was more than four months in the making terms of the duration of the investigation. And yeah came out yesterday. It's main findings with that. Andrew cuomo the new york governor sexually harassed nearly a dozen women including current and former aides. Some of this harassment to perform the suggestive comments but cuomo also touch some women without their consent including a state trooper who was working. As part of his security detail. Report also said the cuomo created toxic atmosphere in office. The left these women afraid to report the governor's harassment for fear of retribution. In the attorney general of yorker to shames as the welder report reveals deeply. Disturbing picture of the governor's actions at the matter is civil in nature does not have any criminal consequences. Appreciated that it would be the purview of of other prosecutors to pursue criminal charges essentially in the future well henry regular listeners monocle twenty four on the show and of course others will have heard your frequent chronic cling of this story. It's kind of continued to unfold in recent weeks a month. Does that give you any particular insight in terms of what might happen next given the complexity of the civil versus the criminal aspect Also this factor that this is not really a an established Impeachment process were an established process for what happens should the sorts of of claims and accusations be found. Do you have any sense of what the next steps might look like the same considering the next steps is the pressure for cuomo to resign which was significant. Even before this report was released has now reached a kind of fever pitch an interest to indicate how how much pressure is under the president. Joe biden. who's who's a longtime friends. In fact that the governor has has cooed him to resign in light of this report house speaker. Nancy pelosi us. He's been a longtime associate of quo. Family knows only the governor also for the first time who has called for him at step aside in light of this report so he'll have to resist that immense pressure to resign if not power if that is able to do that that he may face impeachment proceedings at new york state's itself taken forward by the state itself now unlike other states new york doesn't have his to remove elected officials via recall instead an impeachment process unlike the the presidency so that would start in the assembly the state's low at chamber if the majority of the assembly votes to impeach equipment. The matter will then move to impeachment cooled at consisting of all the sitting state senators except the majority leader and at seven members. Of new york's highest court. The of appeals they. Would they need to vote. I woulda two third majority to remove cuomo but as you mentioned. There's very little precedent for this. Not really impressive. At all of the fifty. Six governors state as had only one was impeached has been impeached. That was back in nineteen thirteen. His name was governor. William soul sir. An evening in that instance cases controversial sorts defenders say he was innocent and that his impeachment orchestrated by the time all political machine put him into power but which here which he later define and there's essentially no case law the matter at passage in the state constitution addressing. The matter is is vague about what falls into the category of an impeachable offense. So it's all very very murky going forward this at this juncture pretty murky and the mist of time. You still in short trousers went you henry back in nineteen thousand thirteen Let me see. Then let's say that cuomo cannot ride this out and it does have the feeling like the these these of controversy keep on coming any sense of what. The succession story could like. If that were to happen yeah. He goes succession stories. Pre clear he'll be replaced by the lieutenant governor. Kathy hokuto hokuto would become the first female governor if if if that does take place and been elected on a ticket with cuomo twice but they seem to have too close of a working relationship and who has cooled cuomo to resign herself. Might have this repealed. Now hendra. I mentioned earlier. That you've been tracking the cuomo story oversee from your vantage point. in new york city and i'm sure our listeners. If they want to kind of track back and hear those chapters they'll be able to find them on our on our website wherever got their pokers etc. But just remind us about this fall from grace. Because it's pretty well. It's pretty spectacular. isn't it. i think he's definitely worth casting your mind back to supposed the first quarter of last year. Where at the beginning of the of the corona virus outbreak in america of which. New york was at the epicenter cuomo. Really it kind of was able to to use his handling of that crisis as springboards to kind of boost his profile to to to a national profile really kind of became a national dawning and the back of his widely viewed televised corona virus briefings. That went onto win enemies in fact but the beginning of this year his his golden boy reputation began to be tarnished with a with a series of scandals of one of the most of the was that he had a concealed the extent so governments abusive conceal the extent of nursing home. That's new caused by troy virus. Another extremely series strands of the allegations against him with sexual harassment allegations which is now being investigated air but which began back then. There was also a bizarre strands that he had Used state resources to compose a self-aggrandizing book giving account if his handling of the pandemic american crisis so it. Really things have really snowballed for him over the course of the last year and has comprised the a really spectacular fall from grace. Yeah absolutely well. Eve chronicled so much of it for us. Henry and i'm sure we'll him from you as this continues to unfold in the days ahead. That was acting new york correspondent. Henry reese sheridan. My thanks to him.

"I'm interested in ending by talking a little bit about the trajectory of modernism. In general over the course of the existence of your company because you developed your own modernist philosophy and approach to making stuff feel the last twenty years modernism as an aesthetic has gained a degree popular attraction which hasn't had previously. How has your work related to that kind of explosion interest. Well i think that when we started we were all about mixing the principles of modernism. The sort of core principles that people like dita roms and others have talked about. We're very much modernised and believers in those core principles but our take on him was a little bit more warm a little more comforting little bit more comfort and mixing it with craft. We were really big. Proponents of craft in the early two thousand win. The whole sort of explosion craft hadn't really quite happened yet. it was really just being talked about. There was a lot of craft aspects in food at that time. But now we've sort of you fast forward. Almost twenty and the whole idea of the resurgence of craft is kind of everywhere so we've watched that evolution of modernism together with craft really sort of grow and become more and more popular. I think that that's really been the evolution. That mixture of craft with modern principles. I think business central quality to modernism. And i think that it's not based on the novelty Of a stylistic approach even though it gets colder style now. I think that the roots aubert are about the structure and actually the essential elements so pairing things back. And i think that's a very timeless idea. It translates through time. Because as you live and us because it's also designed around functionality. It's not just designed around and aesthetic as you live and use things thailand believe. You're i get tired of them. I think that whole idea timelessness that you can still be inspired by these things and look at some of the furniture that you still have available today. Design was launched sixty odd years ago plus there still is beautiful today and there still is meaningful and still inspire people and i just think that simplicity just is really really important and then as we combine that with natural materials and people always have a connection to natural materials so there's always a fascination with that and there's also obviously a timelessness around that is the beauty of any kind of detail you get you get from the material whether it's grain of the wood or the banning of a marble or the weeding of kane. I think that's why that modernism has been with us for such a long time. And i don't think it's gonna go away anytime soon. Obviously that wars craig. Bascom and scott fellows there in conversation with a new york correspondent. Henry reese sheridan. The exhibition carve curve. Kane is currently on at eighty two franklin street in new york until the twenty seventh of august. Paris fashion week recently took over the french capital and a number of brands returned to the runway debuting their collections for spring summit. Twenty twenty two with live showcases joining me to reflect on some highlights from the event which wrapped up last week is fashion journalist and regular monaco. Twenty contributor dana thomas dana. How are things in paris at the moment. Well it's been very rainy. Which makes it kind of difficult to get around and the traffic is back. It's epic traffic. So whenever we go anywhere in town. Now we're back on our bicycles and trying to dodge the raindrops. But it's really wonderful. Be back in paris and see paris opening up an alive. I was riding my bicycle through the maui the other evening and just seeing all these particularly young people who've blossomed. They're like tulips opening and springtime out in the streets dressed sue fantastic and just walking with purpose to their social engagements and the cafes are full in the terraces are full and you can hear parties and you don't mind. That sounds absolutely amazing. I'm feeling like a lot of a lot of europe is getting back to that point. Which is which is so lovely. So we're talking about a fashion week in paris before we got on. I was talking to you about milan. And it's been a bit of a tentative start in terms of shows. Not so many brands are getting back to live shows but few are. I think there was any three in milan. But i believe that was six in paris. What happened in terms of physical shows and then digital shows. They were handful in paris and the ones that were on. You know. we're the ones you want to be on the last show i went to. Before lockdown was dior womenswear at the plus concord. And the first one back is dior. Menswear at the place. La concorde and it was just great. It was a partnership with travis. Scott the rapper and it just was alive of course. The music was fantastic. He did a hold soundtrack himself and included a new cut of music. That was really really happening. Going to the shows was like going to a rave in person and online. There was great music a lot of color. We've been dressing down because we've been home in wearing. You know muted colors soft close and baggy clothes and trying to nestle and swath ourselves to get through this period and now we're back out and like i said those kids in the street that i saw on their way to parties and social engagements the shows were just all about embracing hedonism again and we saw that particularly. The husband is just incredible. Footage of travis scott kind of be mobbed by fans is this just you know in line with with the mood of everyone right now. Everyone that's lucky enough to be in this position where we all getting back out into the world. You think fashion designers are really channeling this making something exciting from it. Obviously you know. It's great to celebrate this but the craft of defining a collection with a sense of celebration is not easily done right. No it's not. in fact you know. They had an impromptu street. Mosh pit in front of the tent where they had their show a dior. It was just you know enthusiasm. I guess is the word that you you want to apply to the close the energy the everything and some retro looks you know. There were flared pants. There's psychedelic influences. There's sun bleached pastels acid colors some graffiti and big names and words blasted onto outfits. Lots of neon. It's just like somebody turned the lights back on. It's just great. And i'd love to hone in a little bit on the business side of things because there is a reason why these shows do need to happen in person. You know it is a lot about buyers coming and seeing what. They're actually going to be selling into shops. And it has been difficult for a lot of people it seems from reading up on the power event. The big french names the ones that did exhibit and have physical shows us saying you know there's a real business case to this. We can't do everything online. You know we need to satisfy by as across europe because it's only europeans that can go to these events at the moment but obviously the rest of the world to follow soon. So can you take us through that side of things. Why these big french houses saying so important to have a physical show. Well it's not just the french houses. Even mr armani said you know it's really because you know it's important for the city for him to have a a show in milan. he's you know. The hotels or half full storefronts are vacant and the paris. There are a lot of places that are empty that businesses. That just didn't make it through.

How of approaches for treating lung cancer evolved over the years and how is our understanding of the disease in our ability to treat patients also advanced and gm myers. I would really say there have been several stages of our understanding a lung cancer. All kind of coming down to this notion of really. What cancer is which are cells. That are growing when they shouldn't be and where they shouldn't be and our very first medicines for lung. Cancer really focused around chemotherapy. Which are medicines that really target cells that are growing faster than other cells in the body and in fact chemotherapy can be quite effective for lung cancer and can result in some benefits for patients but over time we recognized that the cells lung cancer actually sometimes grow for different reasons. Not all of them are growing because of the same reasons. Some of them have proteins that change caused them to grow and we recognize this and there were very specific. Medicines than have been developed for these very specific changes so such names would be far which can be activated and caused lung cancer to grow or alc- can also be activated and caused cancer to grow. And we now have medicines. That are very focused on these very specific ways that lung cancer can be grown so that step really allowed us to see that lung. Cancer is not just one cancer. It's actually multiple types of cancer with different reasons that it can grow and then the third evolution that really has happened has been the recognition. The cancer can have means to hide from the immune system and our normal immune system can help to attack cancer but the cancer can have means to hide from this particular line of threat and new medicines called checkpoint. Inhibitors have really allowed lung. Cancers to now be seen by the body in further augment the ability of the body to fight the cancer andrew mirus global program head of lung cancer at novartis and enduring commitment for more than a quarter of a century. Novartis reimagining back with the briefing monaco. Twenty four now new yorkers will head to the polls today in the city's first ranked choice merrill election the fiercely contested democratic primary is being closely watched as it will likely determine who will lead america's largest city out of a harrowing year of pandemic induced lockdowns. Let's get the latest on this with our new york correspondent. Henry reese sheridan who joins us now from the big apple henry. Good morning to you. Good morning tom. Thank you very much for having me very good. Speak with you again. It's been a while set the scene. Where are you. What are you doing a cup of coffee on the guy. what are you wearing. For example you will the personal seen rather than the the political scene picture with your words henry. Us of about one sixteenth of glass of coffee left by one sixteen to the coffee in the glass left. Not one sixteenth of the glass yet and seeing here wearing clothes. I describe as normal. I think that that does enough. Let's jump into this really really fascinating stuff. I mentioned this ranked choice elections really interesting In terms of what that means and how that's going to manifest the decision making at the ballot boxes. Tell us a little bit. What have been the kind of the main themes as the final days of campaigning have been taking alone. I'll begin by introducing you to the front running candidates the way shaken out in these final days. So four real contenders. There's eric adams who is the brooklyn borough president. There's kathryn garcia. Who's a former sanitation commissioner. Maya wiley who who's a former counsel to the current mayor bill de blasio and there's andrew yang who is a former businessman and democratic presidential candidate. Now for a long time the majority actually if the official compaign adams and yang have led the pack and according to an episode poll. That came out yesterday that still the case but the race has tightened significantly so adams is the first choice of twenty eight percent of democratic voters. And i'm going to explain why i'm using the terms first-choice hopefully if you give them the chance he's followed by andrew yang at twenty percent. Kathryn garcia has fifteen percent and maya wiley has thirteen percent. So it's a fairly tight race now. The poll shows adams eventually beating young fifty six to forty four percent in the seventh round of a ranked choice voting simulation and they were nasty. Words exchanged between young adams yesterday. But that is probably best explained in the context of of this of this ranked choice voting system. Well yeah obviously. I was going to ask you about The the first time. I i'm right in saying that. That's been used in a democratic primary and in essence. Henry mean it means that you number your preference preference of states in a descending order one through five and you continue down if nobody wins fifteen outright. Then you look at the second choices if no one's out right third and so and so forth do do we know how that is going to change up the stretchy. 'cause i gather we've already seen certain candidates trying to band together gang up on one another in order to sort of play the ranked choice system to their advantage. It's a complicated picture right. And that banding together is actually one of the Intended effects in a way at least an indirect intended effect of the ranked choice voting system because basically by making elections less zero sum compared to first past the post systems by reducing the number of votes which are wasted because they're simply not counted it ranked choice voting is mentor reduce nastiness between candidates and encourage collaboration..
New York State Is Set to Raise Taxes on Those Earning Over $1 Million
"It's time to check in with our correspondent in the big apple. That's henry reese sheridan. Today he delves like an over caffeinated accountant into the controversial plan to raise taxes on the rich in new york. Take it away henry. New york contains an enormous number of very rich people. The figures for twenty twenty onto yet but in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred ten thousand four hundred thirty five ultra high net worth individuals. There's people with more than thirty million. Us dollars in that worth called the big apple home. That's more than any other city in the world. New relationship to its rich residents is fraught one on the one hand. Presence of very rich people brings prestige spending power and lots of tax dollars on the other hand. New york city's rich are extremely good as segregating themselves from the rest of society particularly in the fields of education healthcare and housing when not extracting a service from them the less wealthy of new york no the richer here and they're told by politicians from the right to the center of the political spectrum to feel thankful for that but it can be difficult to understand whether tax dollars of the wealthier going when the city's basic infrastructure is in such bad shape politicians a scared to tax the rich as individual careerists. They fear wealthy donors will abandon them if taxes are raised and all but the most leftist governments tend to be swayed by the belief that the wealthy will leave if they are taxed too heavily. Decimating the tax base. This is why historically new york governor andrew cuomo has been soft on taxing the rich in fact cuomo is so scared of the rich leaving new york city. He's willing to go to extreme measures to keep them here.
