"This is the world In some parts of the world. Being an environmental activist can be a dangerous, even deadly job. According to a new report from Global Witness a human rights organization. 227 environmental activists around the world were killed last year, the highest number ever recorded. Reporter Manuel Reuter is following the story and joins us from Bogota, Colombia, meanwhile, lay this out for us. Where are we seeing these murders happened? I mean, which countries we're seeing. This murders happen in countries that have internal conflicts or conflicts where lots of different armed groups are vying for territory, for example, in Colombia and in Mexico. But also in countries where governments are encouraging companies or settlers to take over natural resources and then and orderly fashion. Which is the case, for example, in the Philippines or in Nicaragua, which had 12 murders of environmental activists last year. But since it's a relatively small country had the highest per capita rate of murders of activists, Hm, Is there a reason why we're seeing this uptick in murders of environmental activists? Well, if you look at the report from global witness says that there were 227 murders in 2000 and 20 Out of those half are just three countries Colombia, Mexico and the Philippines. Colombia has the most martyrs with 65. So in the case of Colombia, for example, the reason there's an uptick is that there was a peace deal between the government. And the fight guerilla group five years ago, which helped the country in general, But that also left power vacuums and some remote parts of the country where now drug trafficking groups or smaller rebel groups are trying to come in to take over that vacuum to take over the drug trafficking routes or the logging or the legal mining. And then that affects environmental activists because environmental activists who are trying to preserve the forest or preserve sources of water from mine, and, for example, get caught up in the new confrontations over territory by these armed groups. So in Colombia, for example, according to global witness is numbers. The number of environmental activist murdered over the past three years has actually doubled. What is being done to protect environmental activists. I mean, in Colombia or anywhere else, I mean, is anything being done given the numbers of them who are being killed? I think that groups like global witness with this report. What they're doing, which is very important is highlighting the should creating awareness about the issue. And then another thing. Our projects even by the U. S embassy to strengthen the local justice system when it comes to these murders of environmental activists or any other kind of activists. Really One important thing is to make sure that threats against them are investigated when these people are alive, and they're being threatened That they're provided protection in Colombia, For example, many human rights leaders have bodyguards assigned paid for by the government. And then if a murder happens, it's very important for prosecution to happen, because that's the only way you can discourage criminal groups from doing this again and again. So when it comes to doing something that's very important, for example, to strengthen justice systems in these different countries, so that they're more capable. To go to places and investigate together and process information in places like Colombia a huge backlog when it comes to prosecuting murders. Manuel Rueda is a reporter based in Bogota, Colombia. He's been talking about environmental activists under threat in many countries worldwide. Thanks a lot, man Well Thank you. In Afghanistan. The LGBTQ community is concerned about the future. While homosexuality has long been criminalized in the country, advocates fear the situation will get more dangerous. Under the Taliban's strict version of Islamic rule. Many members of the community are now in hiding and hoping to flee the country, The world's Bianca Hillier reports. I recently got on the phone with 24 year old in Afghanistan she identifies as a lesbian and for years has been a vocal defender of L G B T Q. And women's rights in the country. People have been targeted for similar beliefs in the past, so we're not using her name out of concern for her safety. She's been on the move for the past couple of weeks, trying to stay out of the Taliban's path. Now I'm staying with friends, but I cannot stay here for long time safely. I will still one week, but after that, for short, Taliban come to you at home Twice. Now she's been told the Taliban came to where she was staying. Shortly after she left, she says they've asked for her by name, and she believes they're targeting her because of her identity and activism if the Taliban government recognized by international community and other countries in G B T. A woman will not have future in Afghanistan. She told me. She saw this danger coming a while ago. So she reached out to a man who she'd met through an L G B T Q Facebook page. He's also an activist and identifies as gay. But in August, the two of them got married because they both knew they'd be safer under Taliban rule if they were in a heterosexual marriage. I didn't want such marriage based on fear based on escaping from Taliban were just husband and wife to be saved from Taliban. The future of LGBTQ. People in Afghanistan is unclear as details of the new government and what laws it will enforce, remain vague, But advocates say there's reason to be concerned. Between the years of 1996 to 2000 and one many LGBTQ members were executed by Taliban. Artemus BlackBerry is an LGBTQ activist whose family fled Afghanistan during the previous Taliban rain. For example, in March of 1998, they killed two young men again because of some Um, sex relationship. They broke down the wall over them, and I do believe that with the arrival of the Taliban, this punishment will be repeated again. The history will be repeated again. A Taliban judge said as much in July, he told a German newspaper. There are only two ways to deal with the gay person, stoning them or crushing them with a three M wall. Name at Sadat believes the judge is telling the truth. Sadat is a gay activist and author from Afghanistan now based in the US, But he doesn't think the Taliban will carry out these punishments in public. They know that they need foreign aid money and then international legitimacy. And so that's only going to happen if they abide by international norms. If they're like killing women and LGBT people, the world is not going to stomach that, so that's why I think whatever policy they do, that's going to be hush hush. Nearly 400 people have reached out to Sadat for help. Including this 22 year old gay man in Kabul, whom I spoke with over the phone. This situation for gay people now Afghanistan if too much danger where protecting the man's identity for his safety through tears. He told me he's not only scared for his life, but for his family's My father lives My mother left. My sister. Love is danger because of me Because I'm a gay Every day I crying with my sister every day. Is it dead? This man is one of the thousands of LGBTQ Afghans asking foreign governments for help. So far, Canada and Ireland are the only countries who have specifically offered refuge to the community. More than a dozen U. S. Senators and 16 members of Congress have urged the Biden administration to do the same. For the world. I'm being a hillier..

"Hat to be the cfo for a client and that meant that they could be an expert. I'm using air quotes in estate planning and insurance and investment management and financial planning and. You can't expert on all of those all of those things. So a lot of advisers are partnering with company but well or back in the day a lot of firms. Just didn't do that stuff. I think in the back in the nineties. A lot of what you got was you picked mutual fund. Right right right right. Yeah so now that. I think we've made this really big shift this century to financial planning being front center. I think a lot of advisors are trying to figure out. How do i integrate that stuff. Since i'm not an expert. Yeah so one of the things that hillier stars for advisers and their clients is it provides it provides. I don't wanna see simple estate planning because or there are human beings involved so i think what you did this or how. How does that work. You put your stuff but we we mentioned on our show awhile ago that neither had an estate plan and we got shamed for it pretty good by the listeners and so i went through the helius process which you have to do with an adviser in since we are an adviser. I got to go through the process and it was very simple. It basically they ask you a series of knockout questions to see if your if your estate planning needs are more complex than what they offer and they say you know. Eighty percent of people probably just need their simple estate planning solution in the twenty percent of people that have more arduous problems or complexities or whatever it is. They have to go to an expert or lawyer or adviser who does handle those comp- complexity so it's basically just a way. I think for advisors to have a conversation with their clients in also provide a service shamefully. I still haven't done this. So i'm going to hold myself accountable of the next few weeks i will get this done. I'm gonna. I'm gonna use for that and i will report back on how that process was so with out any further ado not to step onto material which we've already done. Here is our conversation with chris shuba.

"Two of top level international sports. The Paralympics opening ceremony was held today Organizers are embracing a human rights campaign for people with disabilities. So why the pedestals on the pity tolerated? We're not special. That's not what it's like. That's a clip from a video for we, the 15, meaning 15% of the world's population having disabilities the stigma attached to disability changes when you watch the sport That's, according to Craig Spence, a spokesman for the International Paralympic Committee. As he says, these games will change your attitude toward disability. So let's get to the sports more than 4000 athletes competing across 22 events. The world's Bianca Hillier is on the Olympic and Paralympic Games beat for us So Diego we saw a few new sports at the Olympics this summer or any new sports showing up at the Paralympics. Yeah, there are two new ones. Badminton and taekwondo are on the Paralympic lineup for the first time for bad men in Japan's own Huma Yamazaki is a fan favorite to win both the doubles and singles events. And the taekwondo competition is really stacked. You're going to want to be watching Amy true, stale from Great Britain, who is a clear favorite for a medal this year and also bowler beard and gunboat from Mongolia. He's got a lot of credentials under his belt. He's currently ranked first in the world and is a four time world champion. Which has earned him nicknames like the Mongolian Monster and the Unbeatable Mongolian fighter, and it's important to remember these bad men and taekwondo athletes have been at the top of their game for years and decades in some cases, but they've never gotten to compete on the Paralympic stage for such an international audience and For some of them. A gold medal is kind of that last empty spot in their trophy case that they want to fill. So Tokyo 2020 is going to be a new and major opportunity for these athletes. Yeah, that's exciting. Definitely gonna be watching out for those new sports and players. But let's not forget the repeat athletes coming back to the Paralympics who are the reigning champs on your radar? Lot to choose from here. First. There's Fanny Militia, a swimmer from Hungary at 16. She was the youngest athlete to represent her country at the 2000 and eight games and Tokyo is her fourth time at the Paralympics, and she's only gotten better. Over the years in 2020. She was even named female athlete of the year by Hungary's glamour magazine. I reached out to her after she landed in Japan. And she shared why the Paralympics and her sports swimming are so important to her At my very first swimming competition. I'm asked for the first time people the same impairments. That was the point. When I said I found my group, my spot and my go in Tokyo is to finish as the least at the Paralympics. As you can imagine, Marco, That's a goal I heard from a lot of athletes, including Brazilian. Some are Daniel Dia's Who is South America's most decorated paralympian ever with 24 medals already to his name. He's actually announced that he's calling it quits after Tokyo and retiring after a successful career, But he says he doesn't want his legacy to just be about his trips to the podium. Okay, the Phoenix architect the androgynous you did. Your boss is issued by forcing more into Grange. Partial is a great songs, grand subject. Speaking about Paralympians, Diaz said. What defines each one of us is what is inside of us and inside of us, There's a very strong force capable of achieving big dreams and big goals. Dis added that he wants his legacy to be about breaking the barrier of prejudice that sometimes surrounds Paralympians. That would certainly make a mark are their sports Bianca included in the Paralympics that are not at the Olympics. Yeah, There are two of them. The first is Bacha, which is played by athletes with neurological impairments that impact their motor function. This is really similar to the Italian game of Bochy. Athletes throw balls at a target on the ground and try to get the ball as close to the target as possible. Then there's also gold ball. It's actually one of the oldest Paralympic sports. And was the first sports specifically for athletes with visual impairments here. Each team has three players who try to throw their ball into the opponent's net, which is a big net kind of like a soccer net. Turkey and Lithuania took gold back in Rio in 2016, But Israel's women's team has made some serious strike since then, and they could possibly get their first gold ball medal this summer in Tokyo. Go Ball and Baca looking forward to that, and much more. A lot of action. The world's Bianca Hillary has been covering the Olympics and Paralympics for us, Bianca Thanks for raising the curtain.

"By on that's underground so we kind of have to rethink and we made this decision after while that. Let's have a cave by oems adapt to whatever terrain they find. Let's let's let's make the caves generate independently of by oems like the cape shapes and everything and then the biles will just be placed independently of of whether they're big large caves there and they'll just adapt and and that reduce the amount of code. We have to write but also gave us basically infinite variety because you could find the a lush cave inside a tiny tiny tiny little area. Where a massive mega cave. Both can contain lush caves. We just have to be a bit smart with the the the feature placements of they'll adapt to whatever is there and the result of that was really positive we were like. Wow this is really cool. We got really incredible variation here and we need to create a bunch of special. You know large caves smallish caves et. Cetera is just one by ohm which adapts so inspired by that we. We kind of realized that since we're now placing big mountains on the surface. We need to figure out how he played by oems and how we can make that less. Those mountains less kind of Clash with with the terrain. Luckily make the the train generally hillier first and then have a big mountain instead of just having a big melting plop down on existing terrain. So we make this kind of fit him and that's what we decided that. Hey let's take this this little trick. We did of decoupling the bio from the from the train shape. Let's apply that in above the surface as well so that's kind of where we ended up. We ended up doing so. We basically said that instead of saying the the multi noise parameters have decided that this is gonna be jungle because it's humid area and in a hot area so that means jungle And because it's a jungle it's going to be flat instead. We say these multi Decide that it's a jungle and the same voltage parameters also decide that it's going to be a hill area. And therefore we get a hilly jungle and it and this gives us just incredibly should start. What were you going to say not any. It's it's so fascinating now walking around the terrain and seeing how different some of these blooms. Look that haven't had that terrain variation before. It's i've got a couple of screen shots where there is a jungle just on the side of one of the new mountains and yeah and and that's the kind of thing seems completely alien to play who've been you know playing this game for the last decade because we used to the way the world works now and i think he's kind of feedback into what we were saying earlier about it providing new challenge and disrupting the way players typically expect the game to go and i think that's one of the things that's made exploring these experimental snapshots so fascinating for players is because microsoft is doing stuff that we're not used to doing and people who've had as much experience with the game..

"Where co production of GBH NPR EX lesson six months now until the Tokyo Olympics with a lot of unknowns. This week, though International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach did make one thing clear. We are not a speculating off whether the games are taking place. We are working on how the games will take place. In other words, how to keep people safe from the coronavirus. The IOC is encouraging all participating nations to vaccinate their athletes. That's raising logistical and ethical questions, though even from the athletes, here's the world's Bianca Hillier. Rumors have been flying about if how and when Olympic athletes will receive the cove in 19 vaccine. The controversy started when some suggested that athletes would get priority access IOC president Box says That's not happening. There's no blueprint for this, and we are learning every day, but we are not in favor off athletes trumping the Cube. President. Bok emphasized that once health care professionals and vulnerable groups are taken care of then athletes should be offered the shots. Many athletes agree with this stance, even though it jeopardizes their chance of competing three time Paralympian meal. Fahey from the UK says he sees both sides of the coin. Certainly you know, you start to ask those moral questions of well if it was Between yourself and annulled early relative. Then who would you rather gets? The vaccine is quite a difficult one to answer difficult, he explained, because people devote years of their lives to the games, and for some Tokyo 2020 is their final chance to represent their country on the international stage. Then his mind goes to friends and family. You know, I had much rather see my parents vaccine before me because I'm far more worried about the potential health risks for them. As far as when athletes will be offered the vaccine. IOC President Thomas Bach has asked the 206 National Olympic committees to lead their own charge. It is upper tow each government to decide. About the vaccination about access to vaccination in their respective countries. Israel's Olympic Committee says it has already inoculated half of its athletes, while Denmark and hungry say their delegations will get vaccinated in a couple of months. And in Belgium, the country's Olympic committee has already asked its government to pledge 500 vaccines for Olympians and staff. Johan, Bellman's chief physician of the committee, told local media. He doesn't see this as asking for preferential treatment. So Zeke again voting tonight sister from the physical properties that made it started moving, he says. The intention is not to preempt health care workers and vulnerable groups. But we do want to protect our athletes. Obviously, we don't want our athletes to be at a competitive disadvantage. Meanwhile, other countries haven't even started administering the vaccine to essential workers or vulnerable groups, including the host country. Japan itself. Medical workers there are scheduled to get there first shots at the end of February. In the U. S. The CDC considers more than 60% of Americans to be essential workers or otherwise vulnerable to the virus, meaning healthy. Olympic athletes have a long time to wait until it's their turn. Well, it all happen in time for the games. Vivian Reef, Berg spent more than 30 years figuring out operational challenges like this in the health care industry, she says it's possible the number of athletes coming from any one country is on the one hand. Small number relative to the number of vaccines that could be going on. A few 100 athletes, she says, isn't a lot compared to a country of millions. But on the other hand, the distribution and availability of vaccines is very uneven around the world. And even within the wealthiest countries is not widespread referred added that unless more vaccines are widely approved and available, adhering to the IOC's timeline will be a challenge. British Paralympian Neil thought, he says to him. The timeline doesn't sound feasible when you consider how many of the population would be ahead of me. In reality of the point I would be offered. The vaccine is so far down the line. I'd be long past the games have happened, so I think it's inevitable. For US athletes were gonna be jumping the queue to some degree and I guess it's how much we jump it by is the question. I asked the IOC that question once essential workers and others in vulnerable groups are vaccinated. Will athletes then be first in line? Will they be prioritized over the non vulnerable general public? Via email. They declined to comment. The IOC is expected to share more tactics to safeguard the Tokyo Olympics next week. For the world. I'm Bianca holier and one more Olympic related note to share. The IOC is upping its commitments in the fight against climate change. It's setting a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by the end of the decade. IOC President Thomas Bach made the announcement yesterday. In addition to reducing our emissions, we will offset more than 100% off our remaining carbon emissions. The IOC is doing this through the Olympic Forest project combating desertification in Africa Suhel region Within three years. The IOC says it will actually be removing more carbon from the air than it emits, and we're not just talking wonky numbers here. The Olympics have a massive audience and the IOC and host cities are using their bullhorn to show off what they can do that next year's Winter Games in Beijing. All the venues are aiming to run on 100% renewable energy. Faster, higher, stronger and now greener. So let's talk about how carbon offsets exactly work like the one IOC president Thomas Bach mentioned that's on the agenda in our weekly look at climate change Solutions. The big fix way.

What comes in the collection so our Fathers Day. Mavi collection comes with no three really unique products so we have versus. Burma the lobby touch All Hillier with Net back second is used bath bar so unlike previous years. You're doing a whole that bar with the Amami used inside and then the third part is a dot kit so toiletry bag but the thing about this bag is it's one hundred percent recycled t. from US water bottles. Wow so excited to be bringing something by mentally conscious. Tr Father's day line. Ah that sounds so amazing and having that you know recyclable that you're being back good for the environment but great for everyone who gets to how one as well so my next question would be. What was your thought behind the development of the Ahmadi Blend? Where did this come from? So the the origins of the Amami blend really were to have an opportunity for men to take part in Central L. experiences. Well I think sometimes we feel like it's a very much a woman oriented you know experience but men are also welcome in more than welcome to be included in using essential oils on from many different reasons. And so what we wanted to do was really create a blend that could really tie into men's usage so it has a lot of really cool earthy woody aromas part of it that really created this wonderful experience for the men in your life absolutely and it is such a beautiful combination of those earthy. Woody smells. It's just warm and wonderful. I love it personally. Yeah so why? Was it important for To bring this collection. That is more geared toward men like I was saying having everybody included in essential oils is amazing part of your personal life and you know even your business is to be able to target. Everybody needs natural health in their life and this one specifically is helping men feel more grounded in their lives. All of these would blend would essential oils. That bring this calm to your your personal lifestyle and having an opportunity to celebrate them in in our life is also a huge part of what we do here dough tear. We want everybody to feel loved and included in. This is a great way for us to do that within essential oil So you've mentioned those incredible oils that are inside a couple times. Can You let us know? Exactly what those are. Yeah what I love about the lobby blend. Is it off it features to woods would oils that we don't always use all the time so he know key doesn't come all the but we have. No kin are mommy blend and Buddha would and as well as Balsam fir black pepper the chewy when they come together to create this really fortifying Glenn we know it's fortifying blend in really. Do feel confident. Whenever you had on your body or your enhancing for that aromatic affect it really does create this whole change in your your attitude in person Easing these unique blend. And I love that. You brought up those two oils. That people don't really get a see very often for anyone that was able to get the when it was the product of the month earlier this month. It is such an incredible smell and have it as part of this blend. I'm sure is just adding you know sprinkled on top of the cake though one hundred percent it's such a unique smelling essential oil that I love that we get to feature it again this year so I think the bath bar is probably self explanatory for people have had to use that. But how would you recommend using this touch oil? The mob detached so touch royal is something that I would recommend looking up different like touch points on the body. Obviously but for men. I would really recommend you on your wrist. Ten of right there because it it really grounding place on the body can be a really grounding in fortifying aroma in supporting on the part of your body. Just your wrist right through here that is going to be a constantly being Abdirahman therapy perspective of that as well loser. That's the place that I would typically put it on my body not also behind the ear to the best places using that essential one. I love that and because it is attached it so convenient people can carry it around with them. Have it with them when they're meeting it? It's not something that you know you forget it home and then Ono. This is what I needed today. I could have had it in. My pocket is just so convenient when it's in that touch bottle. Oh exactly super portable and I carry mine with the ninety eight percent of the time just because it's so simple and I need that oil on the regular basis. Oh Well Chris.

Shake, rattle and swallow snake is on the menu
"Take your seat with the rest of the class and let's get right to today's topic by now you've probably recovered enough from Saint Patrick's Day to hear the truth. Saint Patrick did not drive snakes out of Ireland there were never any stakes in Ireland. Drive out you see. The weather is too cold for snakes and the water. They would have to swim through to get to Ireland's to Coal Ireland. Is the last place a snake would go on vacation. The Mediterranean would be nice. But that doesn't mean I won't take advantage of folklore therefore we're going to talk about eating snake now the first comet you'll have formulas hey stupid. Don't you know? Some snakes are poisonous. Then I'll give you a wicked little grin and tell you that you're wrong. This will annoy you but hear me out. Snakes her not poisonous their venomous. So chomping down on a snake won't hurt you but when it whips around and bite you best know where the nearest hospital is. It's the venom that's dangerous when it's injected into the skin. Heck you could swallow venom all day and it won't hurt you unless you have a cut in your mouth your best course of action before you get ready to have a delicious plate of Cobra stick cut its head off. A chance of being injected with venom has now dropped dramatically. Unless you pick up the head snakeheads have been known to reflexively by up to ninety minutes after being severed when you cut the head off. Let it fall into a bucket. Then stay away from it until the next morning and be careful not to prick your finger on a Fang now. There's this guy who likes to kill his snake biting its head off. It seems to me that he has some serious male insecurity issues. But I'll put a link to the video in the show notes. China consumes the greatest number of snakes. The most favored dishes snake soup. And it's considered a delicacy in the Cantonese region. It contains the meat of at least two types of snakes. The soup tastes slightly. Sweet because the addition of Chrysanthemum leaves and spices more. Modern recipes include pepper vinegar and thin wafers of fried dough to enrich flavour and texture. A bowl cost you around eight bucks and you should plan on getting a bowl soon as those who make the soup aren't finding many people who want to learn how to do it because it requires the handling of venomous snakes. If you're in Hong Kong look for the restaurant Snake King Law on Hillier Street. It's been making the stuff for more than one. Hundred Years Water. Snakes pythons typical stars of Snake Soup but Chinese Cobra banded crate Indochinese rat. Snakes try rope beauty snake and the hundred pace viper as popular as well in the. Us rattlesnake is most popular variety but with the proliferation of Pythons in Florida. You're likely to see that on the menu as well. Three and a half hours of snake meat will cost you ninety three calories which is half the calories in one third of the fat that are in a Sirloin steak. Those figures can vary depending upon the type of snake. Snakes like other animals may contain parasites and other infections that could be transmitted to humans they can be neutralized by proper handling freezing and thorough cooking as for the taste. And you probably already know the answer this. It tastes like chicken although some say frog legs or a better comparison rattlesnake in the US often battered and fried the New York Times called Desert Whitefish. The writer said it's tough full of little bones and not much meat. So it'd be no snake stakes for you. Now we're going to travel to be at Phnom where you can enjoy a live Cobra heart. When you're in Saigon grab a table at the jungle barbecue guavas weasel porcupine in other tasty treats when you arrive they take you to the back where you can select your very own snake after your appetizer. The snake will be brought to your table by two servers. Bearing large knives and a half full bottle of rice vodka since the snake is still alive to head comes off I. The Venom is drained into the bottle. Then the blood from the rest of the body is added. The Heart's still beating is placed on a saucer and offered to the most important person at the table. Censure from out of town the offer may well be yours proper manners dictate that you then drop the heart into the glass of blood and venom and down the hatchet goes. If you're quick enough you may even feel the beating heart. Go down your throat by now. No doubt your stomach rumbling. And you're ready for a snake. Snack in Nashville. The closest you'll come.

Here's the Real Reason Why Australia Has Bubblegum Pink Lakes

But Australia does in fact have lakes that have a vivid pink color, the most famous of these lakes is probably Hillier which is located off the southern coast of Western Australia on middle island in the past people speculated that the color could be due to high salt, content or micro algae. But here's something you might have missed in two thousand fifteen a team of researchers from the extreme microbiome project decided to investigate the exact cause. Of this pink nominally, they collected water samples, then performed DNA analyses on what they found and they found ten species of salt loving bacteria and several species of algae that were some shade of pink or red and get this a single species of bacterium called Salan a b-actor ruber was responsible for thirty three percent of the DNA collected. Scientists suspect that this bacteria is the most likely source of the pink color, not micro algae looks like mother nature. Can't trick is for too long, despite bacteria being the reason for the strawberry milk color. Leakier is totally safe to swim in in fact, the lakes high salt content lately makes the water so dense that you would be able to float really really easily though will you win the Dead Sea.
