"hodeida" Discussed on UN News

"Was chosen as the location of IHC, because it's close to around two thirds of the global population who can be reached relatively easily via sea or air. It's also close to the manufacturers of emergency and medical supplies, most of whom are based in India, Pakistan, China, or Malaysia. As I toured the warehouses, I saw everything from tents to clothing, water and sanitation equipment, and even a mobile TV studio. But as Giuseppe Saba, the CEO of IHC told me one emergency in particular continues to dominate operations. We are still responding largely to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year we responded largely out of $130 million of stocks, dispatch of 2000 were dedicated to the COVID-19 pandemic assistance. When the pandemic hit, how difficult was it to cope? Everybody remembered that quite a lot of wild crafts were grounded in media, nobody was flying anymore. Just some cargo aircraft were flying around the world. Now this is where not only the UN system, but the body is going back to request a systems by using military assets, what they can tell you is that the government of UAE made available a couple of military. To work through the program and flying between different types. So that's the first entertainment let's me saying shock that we had the collapse of the supply chain. Giuseppe Saba, the CEO of international humanitarian city, remembering the darkest days of the pandemic when it was very difficult to move essential supplies around the world, a situation that, thankfully, has drastically improved since then. Unsurprisingly, the World Health Organization has taken up way more space since the beginning of the pandemic. I visited the 20,000 m² of temperature controlled WHO storage space with Robert Blanchard. The team lead for operational support and logistics. He told me that the growth of the health agencies warehouses has been nothing less than exponential. So we're roughly ten times the size that we were in 2018. And the dollar value of supplies held has grown from 5 million to up to 70 million at any given time. I live basically completed more shipments to more countries across more regions than we ever have before. In fact, in 18 months, we've done twice the output of the previous 5 years combined. For us it began in February of 2020 and we began dispatching personal protective equipment that was here in Dubai for Ebola preparedness, but then was used to respond to COVID. And then the demand just took off from there. We found ourselves distributing laboratory supplies, diagnostic supplies, and of course additional PPE all around the world. The key countries are those that are closest to us. They're the ones that are fastest or the easiest for us to respond to in terms of time. But we've been able to deliver supplies across all WHO regions so that includes South America all the way to the western Pacific. The priority for us is always those countries that struggle to cope with their current health emergencies. Those that are experiencing conflict, countries like Yemen, Syria, countries like Sudan that have resource constraints or challenges with the supply chain. All of those countries fall into the categories of those that we would consider priorities for us. Over the last two years, everybody's been a priority. But it's striking that in terms of the volume and the dollar value of the stock that's been going out. The amount that's been going to Yemen. It's considerably higher. That's right. There's limited options for Yemen in terms of their supply chain. So because there are no commercial carriers servicing sauna. And the port of her data is closed. It's very difficult to reach the northern part of the country. So by pre positioning the supplies here, we can consolidate the goods and organize the shipments to Hodeida by C, and then it's trucked over land to the capital where our WHO offices. That's one of the reasons why they used to buy as a staging area for their supplies to cut down costs internationally for suppliers to store them. We've been able to store them here for them at no cost and then transport them when needed. Your quite a small team is only ten of you for such a huge space. It seems very small. How have you managed to get through it? Have you been working 24/7? You know, I wish I had an answer. We have a really dedicated team, the team was so committed during the curfew period here in the UAE. We literally had to sleep in the warehouses to be ready for the next morning, so that we could load trucks and get them all off to the airports on time. So it's been a tremendous struggle. But I think it's that humanitarian spirit and the commitment of the staff that have really gotten us through the last 18 months. Robert Blanchard of the World Health Organization in the agencies are busy warehouses, where supplies were being prepared for airlift to Yemen. Vivek Parmesan has spent 18 years as warehouse manager for the UN humanitarian response depot, which stores material for UN agencies and NGO partners. He too has seen a marked increase in activity since the beginning of 2020. After the COVID, the pandemic started, I can tell you the whole day, almost every day we have busy busy operations. But earlier, yes, of course, it was mainly when there is a disaster somewhere around the world. That's the time we get really busy. But these days always busy. Every year we are growing in terms of the facility, the size, the kind of items that we store the kind of responses that we do, they're growing. How is that made life for you and your team? As we are the frontline responders to emergency responses. And this during especially during this pandemic, we didn't have a chance to take a break from work for the last two years after the pandemic has started, we're continuously working. We never stop coming to work. The warehouse facilities far away from the main city area. So some of them the stuff is staying far away from our facility. So they used to do this sharing taxi and all. They used to come in the morning carpooling, but they had to stop at some stage and they had to travel themselves. They had to find their own transport. And those kind of difficulties they had. The work what I'm doing. I know that there's a course for what I do, you know? It's not just like I work for the salary. It's not that I get a satisfaction when I know that this aid, it's helping the people who is in need. Vivek Parmesan, warehouse manager for the UN humanitarian response depot, who, like many of his colleagues, has been motivated to go beyond the Call of Duty to make sure that essential lifesaving supplies get to those who need them. Those I spoke to at IHC think that in the short and medium term, the pandemic will continue to be a major focus. But what happens when the next global emergency hits? Giuseppe subber is convinced that a complete rethink of the way emergency supplies are prepositioned, or in other words, strategically located in warehouse hubs such as IHC is essential.

"That's how you sort of combat the forgetting by learning at intervals and that's what space. Repetition is so at Practica way of space repetitions to help you during exam. Week is by using A Li does retrospective timetable. So if you guys I know a lot of us. We generally use the prospective timetable during exam. When I say persuade tape. What I'm trying to say is that What we typically do is to kind of say okay. So today is what the twelve Exempts Thoughts on the Twenty Fess. Or maybe fast dream. What I'm going to do is I'm going to study What's I'm going to steady demand and supply Tomorrow new you probably say. I'm went to study economics from tomorrow's of finding then from Saturday to Sunday. Our steady the block. How many times they always say maybe mind be English Tuesday. Social Studies Butts Elite Abdali seen. That's not a good way decrees at timetable because revision is a function of time. It's it's a function of topics. What does he mean by that? The idea behind. His retrospect of Oh. That's I'm sorry for good here this someone into gun transgress and research can hear that but yes the idea behind Ali Abdullah Russia's because I'm able is that You predicts you know what's a steady on what's deeds you contradict on Monday. Just the English or to the ships ladies Yukon Yukon predict. That's and it's a snow at function of like revisionist my function of time in the sense that it's not about how much time he's into steady. This is actually about. What's you studying? Maybe I have algorithms. I have economics have English. We are going to do this. An Algorithms decided topics have steady Bruce Force vitamin conquered Greece and clunker ashes of improvement. While you do. Is you say so Monday. I'm going to study. Probably like Bruce Force In may be divided Hong Kong. And then you ask yourself if the exam was tomorrow would I be happy about like? What's up steady CD? Will I be able to reproduce at steadied to D if North they? You know that sometime in the you have to go back to steady boost force andy vitamin CORNCOB. Because maybe next week if yet as that only you will not be able to do that. And that's those dot that's that's is building on the idea of space or position. If he studied was wasn't an emmy programming on Monday on Thursday usually be studying again? If you are not sure that you'll be able to you'll be able to rights or reproduce enough information if you tested. Don't it's the next rise so it's more about. What yes that. He knew that time so there may be Tuesday kind of scientists that the GDP and How how countries measure productivity or something? You can decide suspended. Does they also asked us off on Tuesday while okay? If I'm tested on this next week would I be able to reproduce? It's probably notes so then you put it down again for Friday. Remind ourselves goal back to steady. Gdp off saying that so Monday. I'm the economics I'm done. Suzanne knew it doesn't work like that. It doesn't work like that you steady in spaced intervals. And then you steady seem things repetitively so at some point you actually know auto information that you studied. That's the idea behind space. Repetition does the idea behind. was called retrospective timetable. And I know that some people will do it. It's kind of like highlights guys about the Cornell. Not Matter what they will do is I did color coded so if they studied and they didn't really understand the do probably California's read. It is studied Measuring CPI and the understood CPI then become probably CPI in blue states or maybe agreed to CPI has the green lights so just if our steady CPI CPI in about a week with in read such studies into D's that's how they do the espy's repetition. So I mean there's no click on tweets do. It's you look at what works best for you and do that. So after space repetition we go on to leave practices and leave practices almost similar. But then we can talk about Active request position with thousand ten breakfast. So the idea behind the leaf practice is that you don't sit down to do three hours of algorithms you don't sit down to three hours of economics what you do is you sit down And your steady block. You do an hour of algorithms you do an hour of e corn. Maybe you do on our of text and meaning and the evidence. Yes shows that interleaving improves retention. When it comes to the Dean for exams so in the book make it stick which you should probably read I think is such a great book has so many good reviews and actually wants to read it. I'm so make us take the authors talk about hockey coach. Who would typically at least to? Smu So training drills and what you do is as soon as he realized that they were get the hang of a particular drew he would immediately immediately. Switch the drill up and he'll send us to like a completely different drill and even though a matron and Hotta because it's like your buddies adjusted to Appalachia drill and then now you are just immediately sent off to a different routine Like we were going to a hits yet but with sadness Buh Looking back the place acknowledged like that even though this may training Longa in Hodeida like does is the main reason why the OSCE achieved significant results. Because the thing is A Oh mind you be like okay. If I'm studying. Moth IS PROBABLY DO OMA. Thri now by then the evidence shows that that's actually know about for doing math for seeing an hour and a half of like focused time and then stop in and then went into English worldwide. Because if you are an engineering students you probably have very very very long. Labs like my roommate sometimes has like three hour labs before our lots of people have more six our labs and stuff you do realize at some point you're just not paying attention anymore. It's not helpful to you as a help. You seen anything Also Nathan Raga does so the thing is this this. This is true because Kansai intuitively is only when Lennon gets harder though we are actually learning and I know it sounds weird because in your mind you think that's when you know suffering land something you're actually learning by apparently north is way you're lending your suffering They actually let it but the idea is behind into leaving. Is that Whenever it gets hot a winner rights and whenever it gets easier here probably doing a wrong because at the gym the more we see lifts the more muscle you build and this is basically the idea behind intend even practices. Or it's leave your practice so we've talked about understanding EH remembering An who spoke about the feminine technique and I talked about actually recall speech repetition. We've talked about in practice. So the last thing was talking about is focused and honestly this is a bit of a hard one for me. Because in terms of focus I don't know I don't know it was kind of live. I don't know what kind of lie I can tell you when it comes to focus in. I don't know what I can see is going to improve your focus or give you some tremendous. I don't know I know. People saying suffering easy been leases. Honestly focusing is all about is about. You is all about you. It's nothing about motivation is not a thing about Was a accord. It's not as is really all about you. It's just discipline. Nobody can teach you how to focus. Nobody can tell you how to focus. 'cause I think we're muscle vision this year. You can wake up and be like wow. I am so in the mood like I am just in the mood. Rhino to was its fees to steady accommodating. Solve like all these questions on. I'm just in the mood for it but that's not will focus is that's not how you teen shoe focus should focus has been able to say okay. I woke up feeling like crap I will come nor in the Moussa steady but then I don't really have a choice. I'm going to sit. Down and steady does is focus. You being able to steady. I mean that's actually disciplined. And that's how you're able to focus you you focus because you are disciplined. You have made a promise yourself and you are keeping its. That's basically it so I don't know if I disappointed you. But honestly Samson Focus. If I tell you I'll probably just be lying to you like apart from the things I've said over and over again which would be like in steady music and stuff. I can't really think of any other way that you can focus just us again. That species into some calm music but then the thing is discipline so guys thank you so much for coming along with me on this episode I run a little longer than expected. Us always by Annesley. I'm thinking guys for this. I really hope that this is helpful to you. And your studying I would like to hear what you guys.

"The the news that's out there in a while we continue with these in nineteen thousand plus fabulous people here at the GM tech center in war and it's the launch of the the newly imagined twenty twenty one Chevrolet suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe were honored to be here with these people who are gathered around this vehicle and with great joy it's really something to experience very similar to what you'll experience come June of the new year and the new and re imagines north American international Auto Show in Detroit we're excited about that as soon as you might well imagine but here's another story and that's not a good one it's terrorism here in America terrorism in Jersey city New Jersey then the man who's following this for us is our W. J. R. news national and international correspondent Steve Qassam bomb in New York City nearby and we just wanted to say a good morning to you Steve and another bad story that you can give us some details on that shooting where we're now guessing that to these these the bad guys who are dead we're kind of keying in on a Jewish kosher market is I understand the latest yeah that's correct Paul W. this story still developing it really have been developing through the overnight hours and and continues to be investigated and and just to refresh everyone's memories in case of people aren't familiar with what happened yesterday there was awhile shoot out in a Jersey city neighborhood across the Hudson River from New York City it sounded like hundreds of rounds were exchanged between two gunmen and huge police response in the area after a detective was shot in the head and killed while he was approaching a van that he believed was connected to an earlier murder in a neighboring city the two gunmen as they were trying to evade police then ran into a kosher grocery store in a neighborhood with a growing orthodox Jewish community in Jersey city and that you may have seen from the video heard some of the audio the gunfire that erupted was just alarming it the truly sounded like battle in a war zone buy at at the end there were five people left dead the two gunmen and three innocent people who were inside that kosher grocery store now the mayor of Jersey city Stephen pull up who identifies as Jewish said that anti semitism has no place in the city and he wrote on Twitter that the kosher grocery store one forget it and that investigators reached this conclusion after examining video from security cameras in the area but Paul W. he did not elaborate and he's referring all calls now to the state attorney general's office of people don't know what he means by that the targeting what was there some prior connections between the government and the store war war or can can be discerned something from that security camera video that makes them believe they targeted this store because it was a Jewish owned store well that'll be fascinating because we kind of got the impression that when this hero of the fallen officer identified as detective Joseph seals of fifteen year veteran of the department approach to this van and as he approached it they shot him and it sounded like it all began there and that they ran for refuge and it just happened to be a Jewish kosher market but as you point out Steve Casson bomb the mayor is suggesting that maybe he has other information or maybe I I don't know what we're going to find out wait to find out how in fact he felt they were targeting this market because it was Jewish in the first place and A. as fascinating as as that's kind of a fascinating sidebar to a horrific story and you're right Steve for those of us who who captured some of this in the late news last night it sounded like an unbelievable long gun battle yeah it lasted for around two hours the exchange of gunfire and it wasn't just Jersey city police to work you know rushing into an unknown really you know they were facing off with two gunmen who they later said were using a high powered rifle that had a lot of ammunition you know they were rushing to an area knowing that one of their fellow Jersey city police officers had already been killed and then they were joined by police officers from surrounding jurisdictions and as well from the New York City bomb squad who came from across the river to help out because the you use the robot to go into the store once the shooting stopped you you know see if if if all was clear and then that there was a U. haul truck that was stolen by these government according to officials and there appeared to be what might have been an incendiary device in the back of the truck so they want the bomb squad to check that out as well so apple W. still a lot of details are to come out here and and that's the issue is still very much in the early stages well I I would just remind people and administration of go it was decided to take heavy armament away from our police officers on the street leaving them with an effect P. shooters to go against criminals who are heavily armed these guys were heavily armed the original officers on scene are not so heavily armed yes the swat teams come in with the heavy armament but but the idea of taking this away and say well the police are not military oh my god where have you been yes they are in our society today with the people out there that are doing bad things so that's right out of pocket although we are going to add to that of the V. two police officers who first engaged these government after they ran into the store they were just two officers on foot patrol with the their their service or service hand guns there thank you know their their service guns in the hole through that with it in the really engage that the government and are being held as as heroes for doing so less and then engaging each.

"Ten million people are on the brink of famine today more than fifty thousand have been killed since two thousand fifteen those are just two of the many ways to describe the human costs of the war in Yemen conflict that involves you support for a Saudi led coalition a rare bipartisan pushing congress produced a resolution to end American involvement in the Yemen war, President Trump has now vetoed it Trump called the resolution unnecessary attempt to weaken his constitutional authorities. I wouldn't say that it was unexpected Charene Daime was born in Yemen. She's now an assistant professor at Michigan State University. Many of us have expected Trump to continue to support the Saudis in this brutal war in Yemen. But I think it's still devastating given the impact of US involvement in Yemen and lost opportunity. I think for the US to finally take some positive steps toward ending this war. So it's certainly devastating and disappointing. But not unexp. Elected. What have you heard from your friends and your family back home in Yemen? Well, I don't think I think Yemenis have gone through multiple rounds of disappointment with different bills in the Senate trying to build support for those. And then then falling through it took at least two years for this Bill to even get through congress, which is seems to have been a huge feet. I think you know, family and friends were excited at first, but they seem to have not been paying too much attention. Now, they see this war many of them see this war as the US Warren their country as much as it is Saudis in the US's inside. I don't think anybody was really holding their breath. But certainly there's disappointment because people are still living under miserable conditions. They are still experiencing the devastation of this war. It's affecting their daily lives. And this is just one more step that is preventing them from hoping and living in a country where things might get better for them. That was Yemeni-born Sharon Daime at Michigan State University. David. Band has the International Rescue Committee. He's also a former British Foreign Secretary militant says the failed congressional resolution had a simple point the point was that the wall strategy America's backing some nineteen thousand bowling rates of being run by the Saudi led coalition with Americans that will start his failing failing in humanitarian terms, I sold myself with widespread malnutrition, the world's second largest cholera outbreak. But it's also failing in political comes in the precisely the people who President Trump wants to take on the Iranians the radicals, they're actually gaining from the wolf strong, Jim. That's why the decision of President Trump too sick with this failed strategy is so significant on so damaging what is this going to change on the ground? There's a complication and dangerous tinderbox really the results of the decision is to give a green light for a strategy that has been shown to fail now. It's important to of knowledge. The register that in January of this. Via the different parties came to talks on the UN hostesses to agree. A ceasefire agreement for parts of the country for the port of Hodeida, which is in the northwest of the treats who control, and it's an absolutely vital lifeline for humanitarian eighty percent of aid going into the country goes through the data. But it's it's a situation when does strangulation because because of the war that's going on around it. There is an inability to get the aid in never mind the bureaucratic obstacles put in place by both the Saudis, and the who and so the prospect now is that the ceasefire agreement hold we seeing increasing numbers of people losing their lives a hundred civilian casualties to- week in Yemen. Most Yemenis being killed home than in any other place because they have to this wall. The narrative out of Washington looks like this a lot of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle came together to try and end US partake. Patient in this terrible Yemen war, and it looks like Trump wants this war to go on. But is it possible that maybe the war will accelerate and get to peace sooner is that even part of Trump's calculation? This is the wall that isn't going to be sold by mobile is not going to be sold by greater supplies. Not going to be sold by more refueling, which is precisely what the resolution was trying to tackle President Trump's determination that the most important finished emptied support Saudi Arabia because they're opposed by Iranian. I'm afraid leaves leads Yemen to the precipice I mentioned the fight. But it's already had second-largest cholera outbreak in the world. It's the risk that ten million people will full from Richmond into feminine and the danger of this decision by President Trump is that it gives a green light to a failed strategy. And it gives such those almost decide who would say that it's possible to negotiate a settlement and therefore doubled down on the. Wall Street cheap. David Miller band heads the International Rescue Committee. He's also a former British Foreign Secretary. Thank you very much. Thank you so much. It took just a couple of days for nearly a billion dollars to get pledged internationally to help rebuild Notre Dom in Paris. Meanwhile, the United Nations is struggling to meet its goal of raising about three hundred million dollars for countries like Mozambique that were devastated by cyclone. It di- last month the storm left more than a thousand people dead and hundreds of thousands of people in need of aid. So what drives good Samaritans to donate a certain causes over others. I asked Michael Sanders. A behavioral economists in London who's written about this donate to charity is it's a rational act, it's a psychological and emotional and social act. So let me see a Kohl's. We have to make a decision. Whether tonight to a lot of the time that comes down to local social distance. So how can I relate to the thing the causes trying to save under support? So in the case of the Notre Dame fire. We. Can all imagine something most of Canada time leap it inside a very impressive cathedral in a western city. And how grand and how mazing that was. And how much that gives you a sense of history. Whereas the victims of a natural disaster half a world away. Even if we can all say rationally the mind that is much worse much larger tragedy more deserving of donation as port even though we know that ration late, psychologically, it's harder for us to to make that leap and that kind of decision to donate. It's ironic, isn't it that a many heart strings were pulled about a pile of bricks not to put it bluntly? But Notre Dame is a building. And in Mozambique. We're talking about a thousand people dead. So wouldn't you think people would find the suffering of other people more salient than a burn building? So under no circumstances all else being equal. We would expect to see more money donated to Mozambique than to some bricks and mortar in wooden some last being set fire to in Paris. I guess the point of sale. That was the old house is an equal. So I watched the news the other thing when the fire was happening. And there wasn't six hours of wall-to-wall coverage of the tragedy in be not speak ill of you. All I mean to be by the that that one's ability studied lies with Anita. How much does one dollar donated to Notre Dame in Paris fair versus one dollar given to Mozambique or any place in southern Africa. Right now, can you parse that out certainly dollar spent in Paris will not go anywhere near as far as adult spent in Mozambique, and send me what you're thinking about doing with that dollar. So investing in saving artwork or brick so much are building some sort of monument than the plan is is certainly not going to achieve. We wouldn't expect the same amount of human guy tightness in benefit society as one dollar spent on food or medication the best money you can spend in Jim Wilson's on a day today basis as on de worming bednets as. So de worming bednets at both been shown to have really really huge effects on the well being the health of people in the developing world, and to have huge spillover fence de worming in particular, Michael, how do you think we could start paying attention and giving to charities helping countries like Mozambique recover from natural disasters. I mean, I accept that. Some of that is on our shoulders we in the media. So I think as you say some of his shoulders. I think what we recognize the be shouldn't just buy candy or chocolate when we get to the checkout in the store just based on our emotions, we don't really seem to get that. We should do the same kind of liberty presence far charitable donations in the same way. You wouldn't think about investing your life savings in a fund without seeking advice, some independent financial adviser? Michael Sanders a behavioral researcher in the UK who's written about the science behind. Why people give money to charity? Thanks very much. Michael. Thank you very much..

"You're listening to the BBC World Service. This is news. The port city of data was brokered ceasefire came into force amid December. There were great hopes of that he could hold and then spread to other parts of the country, which has been a ball for nearly four years. And for the moment, a precarious calm is said to prevail in Hodeida. But until a nationwide ceasefire takes hope millions of Yemenis face famine and continue to be victims of the conflict between the Saudi led coalition backing the government, and who the rebels supported by Ron the European parliament has been discussing Yemen today subcommittee on human rights has been hearing evidence from among others Roger mature to co co-founder of the Yemen's Montanaro guys -ation for human rights. I asked her what she told them. These should know that their countries can do a lot to stop the war in Yemen and not only to provide humanitarian aid. So peace in Yemen is very possible. But it needs a political world and a pressure from the international community. And also there are some European countries hostile setting weapons so some parties to the conflict like this netted Saudi Arabia, and this is a kind of feeling the war. This is also should stop. How was that message received by the European parliament? I was just surprised how much they know about Yemen now because I was here in two thousand sixteen and a hearing about the drones in Yemen. They didn't know much about Yemen in general, but this time it is very clear that is a lot of attention in Yemen, and they were eager to hear more and they asked good questions. So I guess it's the moment for them to to move and also to do a pressure that can lead to something was very positive, but on that specific question of European countries. Halting weapons sales. Did you get a positive response? Yes. And they say that they. I have worked in this. And they have asked for this and different ways. And they want to keep the pressure in this and some European countries. They stopped sitting to us idea Arabia. Paxton many of them, so suddenly like, France and other countries. I mean, you say the the European Union or European states could do more Sweden who hosted those talks last December which have resulted in a ceasefire in Hodeida. What is the latest information? You have from her data, it's assists fire, but not confidences fire. So again, if the international community just kept its iron this and kept trying to push an parties to make the hoodie agreement at least succeed, then that this can lead to many steps toward peace. But the Swedes talk happened only after the political pressure after the hashtag case happened. So when they decided to push all participate conflict too good to Sweden, they just made it. So are you saying that the the warring parties agreed to that ceasefire simply because they were being pressured from outside that they didn't actually. Really want to stop fighting. Exactly. They don't want. They don't care about the millions. They don't care about any procedures that can make the situation this miserable. It happened only because the pressure they are really to p pushed and when I say pressure, it should be balanced pressure. If you have a biased pressure just against one conflict and not the other this kind of pressure didn't work and not work. I mean, you've spoken about the need for European states to stop selling weapons to the Saudi led coalition, but what about the role of Iran in this and the kind of support that they give to the Hootie rebels in fees. We call them like the cheap allies for Iran. So he'll fees are not Hezbollah Yemen is surrounded and all the imports is controlled by Saudi Arabia and the United so. Yeah, Iran, they have their own way to interfere, and they should stop this also. But the the power. Our and this war and desertion is in the hands of the collision more than Iran.

"Silence. Led by Dr j Allen Hynek and US air force in the nineteen fifty premieres tomorrow at ten nine central on history. It's seven twenty two. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Noel king. Good morning. Two thousand eighteen was a turbulent year both here in the US and across the world. So what's in store for two thousand nineteen a forecast for the coming year released today by the political risk consultancy? The Eurasia group says the geopolitical environment is the most dangerous it has been in decades. Our co host Rachel Martin asked its president, Ian Bremmer. What is so frightening about this particular moment? What's scary? Is it just about everything that could be trending badly in the world of geopolitics is and that's true. Both if you look internally at the increasing lack of legitimacy of political institutions and leaders across pretty much all of the world's advanced industrial democracies and at the same time, the geopolitics the relationships, whether it's US Russia US China within the Middle East those relations are all trending. Two. So your resilience your ability to respond to shocks when they occur is absolutely at the lowest level since we started the firm twenty one years ago. Yes. And yet and yet. Yes, give me the and yet and yet the global economy's doing pretty well, and the likelihood of anything actually blowing up this year is still comparatively low. If you're just taking a twelve month perspective twenty nineteen is probably gonna feel pretty good. But for you when I living in the world or raising kids were thinking about the future. This actually feels pretty scary. So that explains why a lot of these sections when talking about the rise of populism or the instability in America's political system that you begin those sections with the words, not urgent. So these are things that could get real bad. But we're not there yet. Exactly think about all of the major challenges that exist out there today, whether it's the U S China relationship or the sustainability of Europe the rise of populism and nationalism. None of these things are urging it feels like talking about climate change thirty or forty years ago. You know, where we knew science was there. But it wasn't urgent said. There was no need to respond to it that way, that's kind of the way the whole geopolitical order feels today. We're already in a trade war with China. How do you see that threat evolving in twenty nineteen even if you don't see it as necessarily urgent? How's it going to change in the next twelve months? I think that the likelihood of a trade war exploding is very low, President Trump clearly sees China and Xi Jinping the way he sees North Korea and Kim Jong on a tough nut to crack. But one that he's on top of he wants to get to a deal. So his willingness to accept something that is considerably less than his cabinet would except for example. I think is quite high. But there are so many areas where the world's two largest economies are going to be going at each other. And that's a real problem. It's a problem for the global economy over time. And it's a problem for all of those countries that aren't the US and China and have to decide how they held you balance these things how do you choose? Russia where do you rank Russia in the list of global threats? Well, Russia plays out in a few of these the big one is on the cyber side, especially because the Trump White House is now much more significantly talking about using offensive capabilities to more actively deter, and it's not gonna work, and especially with the investigations coming out where the Russians are gonna have a lot of their relations with the United States in ways that Putin doesn't like made public the potential at the Russians than us cyber to really come after the US in a way that is damaging and dangerous is going up. So I do think that Russia is one of the higher risk factors generally in the world this year. How do you perceive the political instability here in the US? I mean, we've touched on it. But when you've got a president under multiple federal investigations were expecting the special counsel, Robert Mueller's report out this year. How does this fit into a global analysis of risk? You know, after two years of President Trump, the single biggest takeaway that we should have is how strong American institutions are how little he's been able to actually break. How constrained he is how much he's kind of like a guy. I mean, he's the president. But the president's guy and he's not God. He's not Putin. He's not Xi Jinping. He's not even earned a one. But I do think that it's very clear when the investigations are coming down, and they're getting closer to Trump personally to Trump's family, and to Trump's wealth Trump's organization that Trump's modus operandi is to hit back is to s. Escalate and his willingness to use the powers of the presidency, both legal and perhaps less, so perhaps more questionably. I think that is going to play out in two thousand nineteen to a degree and the potential for that to end up in the courts and even become a constitutional crisis. We're an independent judiciary has to rule to constrain the president's asserted powers. I believe that if that does indeed happen that the president is very likely to be constrained, and the judiciary will indeed stand as a far stronger institution than an individual president. I was surprised to see where Saudi Arabia ranks in the list of threats and considering the destabilizing effect of the war in Yemen. The Saudi led and you supported were in Yemen and the rise of Mohammed bin Salman with autocratic tendencies in the Saudi resume. I I was surprised it didn't fall higher on your list of threats. It was kind of a smaller addendum. Yeah. It's a red herring. It's it's indeed where we put those things that people talk about his risk that we truly believe will not play out. And I think two reasons for that one is because Mohammed bin Salman is going nowhere the recent cabinet. Shuffle has definitely, you know, put more oversight around him. But they're also all loyalists they're close to the family there. There's not a question that Mohammed bin Salman is suddenly going to be out. Also, we are seeing progress as a ceasefire in the port of Hodeida in Yemen right now, which reduces the danger for the world's worst humanitarian crisis that deal was structured by Mohammed bin Salman in Bremmer is the president of the Eurasia group. We've been talking about two thousand nineteen report on global risk the and thanks so much. This is NPR news. And you are listening to KCRW. KCRW president Jennifer Farrell. I wanna take a moment.

The US air force in the nineteen fifties premieres tomorrow at ten it's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Noel king. Good morning. Two thousand eighteen was a turbulent year both here in the US and across the world. So what's in store for two thousand nineteen a forecast for the coming year released today by the political risk consultancy? The Eurasia group says the geopolitical environment is the most dangerous it has been in decades. Our co host Rachel Martin asked its president, Ian Bremmer. What is so frightening about this particular moment, what's scary is just about everything that could be trending badly in the world of geopolitics is and that's true. Both if you look internally at the increasing lack of legitimacy of political institutions and leaders across pretty much all of the world's advanced industrial democracies and at the same time the geopolitics the relationships whether it's US Russia US China within the Middle East. East those relations are all trending worse too. So your resilience your ability to respond to shocks when they occur is absolutely at the lowest level since we started the firm twenty one years ago. Yes. And yet and yet. Yes, give me the and yet and yet the global economy is doing pretty well, and the likelihood of anything actually blowing up this year is still comparatively low. If you're just taking a twelve month perspective twenty nineteen is probably gonna feel pretty good. But for you when I living in the world or raising kids thinking about the future. This actually feels pretty scary. So that explains why a lot of these sections when talking about the rise of populism or the instability in America's political system that you begin those sections with the words, not urgent. So these are things that could get real bad. But we're not there yet. Exactly think about all of the major challenges that exist out there today, whether it's the U S China relationship or the sustainability of Europe the rise of populism and nationalism. None of these things are urgent feels like talking about climate change thirty or forty years ago. You know, where we knew the science was there, but it wasn't urgent. So there was no need to respond to it that way, that's kind of the way the whole geopolitical order feels today. We're already in a trade war with China. How do you see that threat evolving in two thousand nineteen even if you don't see it as necessarily urgent? How's it going to change in the next twelve months? I think that the likelihood of a trade war exploding is very low, President Trump clearly sees China and Xi Jinping the way he sees North Korea and Kim Jong UN a tough nut to crack. But one that he's on top of it. He wants to get to a deal. So his willingness to accept something that is considerably less than his cabinet would except for example. I think is quite high. But there are so many areas where the world's two largest economies are going to be going at each other. And that's a real problem. It's a problem for the global economy over time. And it's a problem for all of those countries that aren't the US and China and have to decide how they held you balance these things how do you choose? Russia where do you rank Russia in the list of global threats? Well, Russia plays out in a few of these the big one is on the cyber side, especially because the Trump White House is now much more significantly talking about using ofensive capabilities to more actively deter, and it's not gonna work and especially with the investigations coming out where the Russians are going to have a lot of their relations with the United States in ways that Putin doesn't like made public the potential at the Russians than us to really come.

I believe that if that doesn't happen that the president is very likely to be constrained, and the judiciary will indeed stand as a far stronger institution than an individual president. I was surprised to see where Saudi Arabia ranks in the list of threats and considering the destabilizing effect of the war in Yemen. The Saudi led and you supported Warren Yemen and the rise of Mohammed bin Salman with autocratic tendencies in the Saudi resume. I was surprised it didn't fall higher on on your list of threats it it was kind of a smaller addendum. Yeah. It's a red herring. It's it's indeed where we put those things that people talk about his risks that we truly believe will not play out. And I think two reasons for that one is because Mohammed bin Salman is going. Nowhere the recent cabinet. Shuffle has definitely, you know, put more oversight around him. But they're also all loyalists they're close to the family there. There's not a question that Mohammed bin Salman is suddenly going to be out. Also, we are seeing progress. There's a ceasefire in the port of Hodeida in Yemen right now, which reduces the danger for the world's worst humanitarian crisis that deal was structured by Mohammed bin Salman in Bremmer is the president of the Eurasia group. We've been talking about two thousand nineteen report on global risk in. Thanks.

After the recent rash of mass shootings, including the one Thousand Oaks physicians across the country are stepping up their efforts to combat gun violence. Eric ticket off reports the American college of physicians, the country's largest medical specialty organization says the failure to act meaningful gun control legislation undermines the country, and it's healthcare systems foundational values. Dr Melissa Hagman is governor of the group's Idaho chapter and says she's had difficult conversations with patients about firearms. She says gun violence is a public health issue and should be thought of as an epidemic mass shootings. Individuals shootings people who lose their lives due to. Domestic violence where there's a weapon involved if epidemic gets people's attention. I think that's the appropriate word. It just seems like something that our country is too great to be having as many deaths needlessly due to firearms each of the most deadly mass shootings. This year have left at least ten people dead. The American college of physicians recommends laws that prohibit people with a history of domestic violence from buying or possessing firearms extreme risk prevention orders that allow families to petition courts for the removal of a family members firearms and a ban on semi automatic and automatic weapons opponents of these proposals say they violate Americans second amendment rights Hagman says it's important not to conflate people who commit violence with firearms with those who simply feel strongly about a person's ability to have access and carry guns, and none of them that I've ever spoken to have ever wanted anyone to be harmed needlessly. So I think there is common ground for people to continue these discussions and to work towards legislation and other ways to keep people safer than they currently are the ACP hopes there will be a shift in the narrative on guns and also has developed policy research. Gently recognizing that hate crimes are a major public health issue for public news service. I'm Eric take it off Democratic Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer said he would seek to tie a measure protecting special counsel Robert Muller to must pass legislation. If acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker does not recuse himself from oversight of the probe Schumer said keeping Whittaker in charge of the investigation would create a constitutional crisis and said if he doesn't recuse himself Democrats would push to introduce legislation to protect Muller's investigation Schumer and other top Democrats sent a letter to the Justice department that calls for the DOJ's chief ethics officer to disclose whether he had devised Whittaker to recuse himself from oversight of the probe. The Democrats cited Whitaker's past public statements which included an op Ed article in which he said Muller would be straying outside his mandate. If he investigated, President Trump's family finances. He also. Previously tweeted, an ex prosecutors opinion that described Muller Lynch mob and what she said was a worthy read, Los Angeles. Democrat Adam Schiff says the incoming chair of the house intelligence committee. He spoke to NBC we have every right to expect all of the employees at the Justice department to fall the ethics rules, and that means especially they turn in general, but, you know, wanna make this very clear if he doesn't recuse himself if he has any involvement whatsoever in this Russia probe we are going to find out whether he made commitments the president about the probe whether he is serving as a back channel to the president or his lawyers about the probe. Whether he's doing anything to fear with a probe. Mr. Whittaker needs to understand that he will be called to answer in any role that he plays. We'll be exposed to the public New York. Democrat Jerry Nadler, the incoming chairman of the House Judiciary committee described Trump's appointment of Whittaker as an attack on the Mueller investigation and said protecting. That probe will be his committee's top priority. Last week word leaked out the special counsel Muller has prepared a number of sealed grand jury indictments including one charging President Trump's son, Don, jR, Karen Greenberg, director of the center for national security at Fordham university's school of law told the Sunday shows Philip mulberry. She believes the perception that Muller is closing in has rattled Trump accounting for his firing of Jeff Sessions and his appointment of Matt Whitaker as a successor and his outburst last week's post-election press conference.
