"That server specific though. Emojis. Yeah, I think that doesn't work on mine or at least I haven't seen it on accounts online yet. And it's okay. X wax out there says you can put it in the location field and get up as well. Do you have an example of that? That'd be great to see what you're talking about. I can pull up. Oh, you don't think you can put URLs in the YouTube chat. They will be filtered out. Yes, you're right. Of course they will be filtered out. It's probably the geographical location field. Maybe your user location field GitHub maybe. I just hope that GitHub would see the light about the importance of macedon verification and allow us to either add the Mastodon account there or just more than one homepage link within well equals me thing there. And I've poked them a bit but so far sadly nothing, but I'll keep poking them. There's an open issue about that or a conversation somewhere right. I saw that the other day, but I didn't call it the URL. So yeah, I think the internals lag. And X wax said, yes, the location field. There's a couple other things I want to follow up on here before we go. And Gina, this one might be particularly relevant to you. Here let me put this in. So apparently the German government has set up its own Mastodon server. You probably know more than I do about this. Yeah, they created this social dot Bundy and yeah, more and more ministries and official places. So what you see there in the screenshots is the or was the BME Bond, which is our ministry of inner security and such. And then, yeah, data protection freedom of information. My own county, as I just said, also or rather my own state actually also is apparently now there. The hesitation. So hey, cool. And yeah, they started doing that around the time that Elon bought the thing. So two weeks ago or three weeks. I don't know, maybe the server is older, but the influx of a ten of official accounts started something around that time. And what I also recently learned is so we have this international emergency broadcast thing that is not as an S based, but rather an app. I don't know how official that is, but there is also a server dedicated to just subscribing to the so called Nina notifications for your location so that you get a message on notification when there is some kind of emergency like really bad weather or I don't know some pump that was found from World War II. Again, which also happens all the time here. And that is kind of neat that they integrated that. So I immediately followed my local X one. A little terrifying now because that means make matters on a safety critical system. You know, when my cues backed up for an hour, suddenly, I'm getting nervous that these messages really do need to be delivered in real time. As you're looking at the rubble warning, earthquake coming. But this is a really, really cool. I absolutely love this idea. And I think other governments should also consider this seriously. Now, two more areas, we're getting short on time. I want to make sure we focus on. First a little bit of programmability, there's a thing called toot and a python library, which you can program, hold toot. So the Tutsi, is that what it's called? Yep. This is it, and it's a massive on in the terminal. Which is pretty interesting. But it has a python library. Has anyone done anything with this? Not yet. Now, I've complained with the API directly because masked on your local server has an HTTP API. It's super, it's a very clean, very well designed API. One of the things it can do is it got a streaming API so you can hold open a connection to a URL and every time a new toot comes in, it gets fed to your script. So I've got a little script to the gist, which I've just been to you in the private chat, which listens to my server and writes to a SQLite database every time something happens. And then I can analyze it in dataset and run SQL queries and so forth. This is going to be the basis where you scroll down. So you went python stream dot py and give it a database. That's the schema. And this is the whole thing. It's what, like, 30 lines of code. Because all you have to do is stream against that fairly dot sign wisdom, that API V one streaming public. And then every time a new line comes in, it is JSON right at the database. So when I talk about building my own algorithm, this is how I'm going to do it. I'm going to be sucking all of that data down into a little SQLite database, and then running SQL. There's against it. I was really impressed on how easy this was. Another thing I don't even need an API key this one. This is just

"The office of foreign asset control is the Department of the Treasury. You guys have to worry about why. Because they are behind sanctioning tornado cash. Tornado cash is open-source software. The majority of the time. No, all of the time, when the department of treasury, the office of foreign asset control sanctions, they sanction individuals and the sanction countries. They do not sanction open-source technology. Now, why would they want to sanction open-source technology? Because if they can get that precedent, that means eventually they will and can go after Bitcoin. They're already using the OFAC to center Bitcoin, Ethereum transactions. More than 50% of Ethereum transactions after the migration from proof of work to proof of stake are actively censoring for the office of foreign asset control. Moving on. So good news this came out a couple days ago, maybe a week ago. Corn center is suing the office of foreign asset control over its tornado cash sanction. Now let's check out the reasons the four claims as to why they are suing them. Today coin center, along with a group of normal privacy seeking years, donors and activists and public figures filed a lawsuit against the Treasury Department to keep privacy normal to delist tornado cash privacy tools from sanctions and to enjoin treasury from enforcing against ordinary Americans exercising their self evident and basic rights to privacy. Our lawsuit makes four claims. First Congress gave the president very specific powers when it passed the international emergency economics power act upon which a treasury sanction rules are based. Sanctions can block U.S. persons from transacting with a foreign person or a majority foreign entity of the property that person or entity, when we or our plant coplan tits used tornadoes, we do so as normal, privacy seeking Americans. We do not engage in transactions with any foreign person or entity or their property instead we use immutable and widely available software on the Ethereum blockchain to move our own valuables from one place in cyberspace that is fully under control to another place we also control. Keep in mind, do not be distracted this is simply Bitcoin, guys. But they are attacking open-source software. If they get away with this, they're doing it on Ethereum now, it's just a matter of time. Before they go after Bitcoin. This is why this lawsuit is so important. Second, even treasury's own regulations and pass executive orders, limit the applicability of sanction controls to transactions with persons, entities, or their property, the tornado cast sanction was made without statutory and also without regulatory authority.

"Talk one O 5.9 WAL. Making sense of the news. It's right I already know he's heard curly and I'm Gary McNamara 8 6 6 90 Rudolph let's go to gene in Virginia about a transferring college debt. Gene, welcome, you're on what I radio hi. Hello, Gary. Hello, Eric. Thank you for a wonderful show. You're welcome. Listen, I invested 6 years of my life in the army to pay for my college. I graduated debt free so I'm very happy with that. As far as the cancellation that debt, I don't hear anybody mentioning, if you see power to the presence to be able to cancel this debt, what's to prevent him in the future from going ahead and starting to impose debt on individuals arbitrarily. Well, because the law he's using, I don't know a law that gives him. I don't know any law from Congress that gives him the ability to individually impose debt on any one Congress passes tax laws. He's using the 9 11 law, which says he can cancel debt. There's nothing that says he has imposed that on individuals, but technically he is imposing debt on every individual here when he cancels the debt. We're taking that. They're right. The result is, but for him to say, for example, that tomorrow I'm going to put Jean into debt, he can't do nor can he sit there and say of a certain income, these people are going to have to pay more because that's how would you put somebody in debt. You tax them more. So if the president can't come out and set different tax levels, different tax rates. But he really can't do what he's doing now because again, it was meant to be international emergency like a war. This was post 9 11. He doesn't have the authority to do this and I believe that the Supreme Court, if it gets that high, which I believe will likelihood will, thanks, Jane. Because this will be fought because I think the Democrats believe this is a winner for them. I don't believe it's a winner for them. I don't think so either. I told you during a break, maybe the pre show meeting, it seemed like the administration was on the ropes very defensive from the get go when the president announced yesterday. I watched the announcement live. And he was, he's always defensive. That's just kind of the nature of who Joe Biden is a person is, these days, but then I saw, you know, Jean Pierre, and then others did that were and these are high profile liberals that were trying to defend it, but they were just, they seemed like they were on the ropes. And what was interesting is the breakdowns. And we played the audio from CNN earlier. And I think that's important to note is that they are and it's not all the liberal media, much of the liberal media's. Oh, this is going to be a great thing. And this is going to be, this is how they're going to be able to spend their money and this is how many things you can buy with the savings $10,000 will

On February 21st of 2022, Russian president Vladimir Putin gave an hour long speech where he not only recognized the independence of two Russia backed territories in eastern Ukraine, but also de legitimized the sovereignty of Ukraine itself. A Putin expanded the idea that Ukraine's borders were drawn up by the Soviet Union's founder, Vladimir Lenin, and still exist only because of the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. After the speech, Putin ordered troops into those eastern territories under the guise of them being peacemakers. Many experts in global geopolitics were concerned if not horrified by these speech and invasion. Suggesting it was Putin's way of rewriting history, as well as of providing a reason to launch what could become the largest war in Europe since the end of World War II. The speech came after Putin had spent months building up Russian military forces surrounding Ukraine. He's also demanded Ukraine not be allowed to join NATO, the defense of alliance that currently includes 30 countries. So how is the world responding? The NATO Ukraine commission met in Brussels on Tuesday, February 22nd of 2022 to address the situation. NATO secretary Jens Stoltenberg said it will stand by Ukrainian sovereignty with force, if necessary. But hoped Russia would still choose diplomacy. So, aside from a full on war, what else are world leaders doing to deter Putin from invading Ukraine? They're imposing sanctions. So today, let's talk about what sanctions are and how they're imposed, and also what sanctions are supposed to accomplish and how they work. Very basically, sanctions are sort of economic versions of weaponry, designed to turn up the pressure on another country and its regime's leaders by hitting them in their wallets. For the article this episode is based on, how stuff works spoke with Ellen Leipzig back in 2020. She's the director of the masters in international security degree program and the center for security policy studies at George Mason university's char school of policy and government. And a former vice chair of the U.S. government's national intelligence council. As she explained, a sanctions are any penalty or disruption in the normal economic relations between two countries. Usually, sanctions are supposed to target a particular bad behavior or send a signal to an unfriendly country. Sanctions often involve freezing any of the target's assets such as real estate or funds and bank accounts that happen to be inside the U.S. and threatening to punish any financial institution inside or outside the U.S. that does transactions for the adversary or helps in some other way. But sanctions also can take a variety of other forms as well, from interrupting international trade to closing a border to suspending arms sales. Sanctions can even be tailored to hit a specific industry or part of another nation's economy. At any rate, it's a form of what's called coercive diplomacy. Sanctions come down to this. How do you get their attention so their feeling some pain? And give themselves incentives to change their behavior. Here in the U.S., the president has sweeping authority to impose sanctions on other countries and leaders under the international emergency economic powers act of 1977, which allows him or her to impose them to deal with any unusual and extraordinary threat. Congress has the power to hit other nations and people with sanctions as well. Back in 2012, for example, legislators passed the magnitsky act to impose sanctions against Russia. The law is named after a corruption exposing lawyer who died in a Russian prison cell in 2009. A Congress imposed additional sanctions against Russia for an invasion of Ukraine in 2014. Given the current Russia Ukraine crisis, president Joe Biden announced on February 22nd that the U.S. would impose sanctions that extend further than those implemented in 2014, including sanctions that will prohibit American financial institutions from processing transactions for large Russian banks. This will effectively inhibit those banks from transactions involving U.S. dollars. Leaps and explained that Congress often resorts to sanctions to avoid having tensions with another country explode into armed conflict. She said, Congress often believes, let's go carefully at the escalatory ladder. Let's express our disapproval in a resolution. If they don't pay attention, we'll then threaten sanctions. If they still don't pay attention, we'll impose those sanctions, and then we'll impose more sanctions. It's a longer continuum from peace to war. Either way, once sanctions are imposed, the Treasury Department's office of foreign asset control enforces the restrictions. Of course, other countries can impose sanctions as well, though according to Leipzig, nobody utilizes the economic weapon as frequently as the U.S. does. Instead, most only want to participate in multinational sanctions, such as those imposed by the UN Security Council, which have included economic and trade sanctions, as well as arms embargoes and travel bans. Since 1966, the UN has used such measures 30 times. Punishing regimes ranging from apartheid era South Africa to North Korea. Okay, but so do sanctions actually work. Leipzig said, there's always this range of opinion about whether sanctions work or not. It depends on what your intentions were. If your intention was to punish, then just measuring the economic pain on another country is a way of saying the sanctions are working. If your intention is to truly change the behavior of the other country, you have to use a very different metric. And in that case, most sanctions fail, and because countries become resistant, they're willing to absorb the pain for a nationalistic reasons. They don't want to concede to a more powerful country. Instead of giving in, for example, a targeted nation may find another more powerful nation to act as its patron. For example, after the U.S. imposed a sweeping embargo on the communist regime of Fidel Castro in Cuba in 1960, the island nation relied upon trade with the Soviet Union, which for years bought Cuban sugar at 5 to 6 times the world market price as.

"G Chang. We've just got a couple of minutes left, Gordon, I know president Trump is running. He will get the nomination if we can prevent voter fraud he will become the 47 the president of the United States unless Kamala comes in in between and then he'll be the 48th. Either way, he'll be back in The White House. What has to happen day one? Of course he'll just flick the switch and he'll, you know, reinvigorate all the things he did with regards to China when we were in The White House, but things have developed since then. We've got to supply chain disaster 200,000 containers off the coast of California. What else needs to be done? What else would you like? If you were there in the oval, what would you tell president Trump is the next phase of dealing with this threat? Invoke the international emergency economic powers act of 1977, or I would prefer invoke the trading with the enemy act of 1917 to do what you talked about before, which is to cut trade to prevent investment into China to throw out China's agents in the U.S. to prevent Chinese nationals from our country from committing espionage to end all technical cooperation agreements with China and to prevent China from buying any of our companies, especially tech companies, but also one final thing. And that's reciprocity. China doesn't allow our media into China. So why do we allow Chinese media into our country? Yes. China bans our apps. Why do we allow TikTok in our country? And one of the things that president Trump did was to ban TikTok and WeChat, although those are overturned by the Biden administration. And finally, you know, we can't have a Reagan institute in China. So why do we allow Confucius Institutes on our college and university campuses and by God, we've got to get rid of the 500 Confucius classrooms in our secondary school. We must impose reciprocity. My expectation would be if that were done if the 1917 law were invoked if we demanded reciprocity if we played even harder, hardball. I think the international community would follow. Do you concur Gordon? Yes, they're going to have to follow because of the strength of the U.S. economy. You know, everybody says that China is the engine of global growth. Well, yes, China has had growth. Not now. Has had growth, but it's not the engine of global growth because to be the engine of the global growth. You got to buy the goods and services of other countries to create growth elsewhere. That's the U.S. because we run these trade deficits. And by the way, China with its criminal and predatory trade policies takes growth from other countries. So other countries need us because we are the engine of global growth. Their economy needs ours. I wish we could continue. We're out of time, but you will be back. I just want to say thank you again to you to Lydia to constantly telling the truth with courage. This isn't a question of economics or national security alone. It is primarily a moral question..

"It is free talk. Live six zero three two eight three sixty one sixty. You're more than welcome to join us at six zero three two eight three six one. Six zero last caller wanted to ask them questions about bitcoin. Always a favorite topic here on the show being. I mean we were the first media outlet to accept advertisement payments in crypto currency. And of course. We've been promoting cryptocurrency heavily since i think two thousand twelve. I don't recall. I say we as we use freetalklive. I wasn't on the show then. But i'm pretty sure that the show was aware of bitcoin. As early as two thousand ten two thousand nine two thousand ten so. It's always been something that we've talked voting shortly thereafter 'cause crypto currency. It's world changing information. And it's it's important for people to learn about and not just learn about it and thinking they're going to get rich or whatever but to actually believe in the things that are trying to achieve if you remember the two thousand seven recession. You might see why we'd want a currency that exists beyond the control of the banks that call st- the two thousand and seven recession and are very quickly working on creating a new great depression and ironically was developed shortly thereafter. It was motivated highly by the two thousand seven recession as soto sakamoto revealed in the newsletters. But let's go to the funds. We got diane calling. Sorry diane colley diane. You're on free talk live. Oh thank you yeah. I did one apologize for interrupting. The last time i called the first am i called. And i i wanted to ask about the nazis. Because i'm so sick of them but you've called right wing when i know darn well. They were socialist national socialists. That that's what the word means nazi. Y- you are correct For whatever reason we do consider not cease to be right wing. I guess the the way that we characterize the wings. Now it's just a matter of social conservatism versus social liberalism progressivism however you twist to characterize it right wing of the same bird. Well i would say that the difference between your right wing. Authoritarian and your. Left-wing authoritarian is primarily rhetoric and secondarily. Certain and secondarily methods. So you're right wing. Socialist is a nationalist that wants to expand and possibly covered the globe. Your left wing. Socialist is someone who just wants to cover the globe immediately. What's the different nationalism. Timing timing okay. Nationalism especially in terms of rhetoric and yet timing so so the left socialist want just a global government without the national identity rising while a right wing socialist once the national identity to consume the rest of the world. Yes okay either way. I definitely agree. There's nothing liberal about either of those approaches. And they're both you know as far as i can tell hard authoritarianism but the whole left right. Political compass thing is fundamentally broken in the first place because are we talking economic right and economic left or social right and social economically. I'm about as far to the right as a person get totally pro free. Markets voluntary interactions between other people. No regulations that person doesn't consider it too but on the other hand when it comes to social issues. I'm about as hard left as you can get. I don't care what other people do. So you have this group of people that are being labeled like right wing nazis. And if you don't want to ascribe the nazi term to them what would you use instead diana fascist. Does that change any well. And so i mean. Fascism is considered to be on the right because Corporations are generally considered to be a capitalist phenomenon now a fascist phenomenon. So you you fascist right on the right and then you have the president of the white house. Being democrat left right but he intertwined with facebook and he's also fascist right. He's demanding businesses act a certain way in relation to their customers in at this point The the democratic party is actually right of center. Okay i mean if you look at the way that they treat the market the way. They treat specially corporations they are actually right of center. Well what does center. And what is left. And what is right. This is part of the whole issue. I see okay. I preferred just think of it as you know. Left is freedom. right is authoritarianism. So part of fascism is that you have Nominal control of corporations by People who aren't the government even though the government tells them what to do right like the white house. Tom facebook wants to do whereas on the left. The government just directly controls it. Yeah but to me. They're just different forms of authoritarianism. Yeah i think. The authoritarian libertarian Dynamic is the only important one honestly the rest is just flavoring. Yeah i would have to agree. They're all hard right. You know the fastest that is joe. Biden is no different from the fascist. Donald trump they both are using corporations to run the united states and when that fails they just use the united states. Government run the united states but facebook very clearly doing the work of the us government with this recent recent extremist. Nonsense seems to be and not to mention the covert nineteenth stuff. And let's let's talk about how these three pharmaceutical companies in the united states. These major corporations that people know not to trust. Because we've been talking about the evils of big pharma in the united states for the last fifty years at least suddenly they're the saviors and beyond reproach because they created this thing in the. Cdc the government said yes. We love these things. You should take these things and suddenly. Big pharma stopped being evil. Well and it was pointed out that like we had to give up everything because this was a global pandemic it is an emergency. It is an international emergency.

They don't have to tell anyone else how to make the vaccine. That's that's an excellent point. I i look forward to thinking about that later but Yeah that's exactly it.

"You see tucker. Carlson was getting onto something about how our intelligence community very well might have been involved in january six with that. Be an emergency. The nsa may not target really us citizens but if they happen to get your data they can keep it and then they can mine it without a court order. That explicitly authorizes the targeting. You see this statement was intentionally written for the simple minded person. What about a climate emergency. If tucker. carlson was tuck texting with nigel garage. About how climate change not existential threat that very well might validate the nsa spying on tucker carlson. Everything's always in emergency to the left so therefore unless it was an account as the nsa define an emergency. I guess under certain court orders were still living under an emergency. Covert right emergency measures. We're able to say you have to wear a cloth on a federal regulated airline over your mouth. So why can't we monitor tucker carlson's text. It's an emergency isn't it. you see the. Nsa thinks that you'll read that statement and then all of a sudden you'll say. Of course tucker. Carlson is lying. Or maybe when tucker carlson. All of a sudden came up with vaccine skepticism. Could that warrant spying. Because that's an emergency because mandatory. Vaccinations is an is a collective good. Sit down shut up take the vaccine and if you don't we're going to spy on you that could be an international emergency. What happens if all of a sudden german or uk or french intelligence agencies are spying on tucker and they give that data to the nsa. What if a different agency like. The australian intelligence agency does the spying for the. Nsa immense sends that data to the nsa and the nsa sends it to the fbi. What's to prevent that from happening. They don't deny that in fact they don't deny anything that tucker carlson alleges they say this allegation is untrue which allegation of the as in the business of taking cable shows off the air that's probably untrue because that motive is impossible to prove. I want to reemphasize this. This is all illegal. We need a new church committee. Senator church type reset is needed right now. And the way they worded. This was to try to to avoid a congressional subpoena or being caught up in a cross examination by members of congress where are the republicans. Well lindsey graham in the type. They actually love big brother. They have always loved the surveillance state. But what's been remarkable to see what's been so telling is how the media who used to always be at war with the intelligence agencies are now carrying the water of the cia. They are now carrying their now. Defending the very same intelligence agencies use to try and expose and orwell predicted this you see the democrats have now become the party of big brother. They used to challenge over the top spying. They used to not like anti-constitutional measures done by our government. But now they enjoy it. I'm going to show you. How orwell predicted this and why he did. Did you know that. Eighty percent of grass-fed beef sold in the united states is imported from overseas it's staggering and it's a problem you need to buy meat made in america that's why i get my meat from good ranchers dot com so look. I talked to good ranchers on a phone. I said send me the box that you send our listeners. And i do not. I got a box that you wouldn't believe this could feed the hundred first airborne. There is enough meat for july fourth memorial day labor day thanksgiving christmas new year's valentines day saint patrick's and tax day. And i know you need to eat a lot on tax day. Because that's not a good day and sometimes you gotta eat but my friends are good ranchers. They've traveled the entire united states and met with actual people real farmers not the corporate tax. Look good ranchers. They love their country. Unlike all these woke stirs and they sell you. Fake vegan meet made in a laboratory with bill gates in underwater. Or whatever he's doing this is real because their product is one hundred percent american when you buy steak and chicken from good ranchers not only getting amazing but you're also supporting american farms and backed producer. Connor i went back to go into the freezer and all the meat was gone. It was gone. I said what did you do. He said it's good ranchers. Good.

"Just collapsed like that? Miami Dade County officials say they have begun a 30 day emergency push to audit older buildings to make sure they're safe. It's important to note the engineering study, performed in 2018 may not have identified any of the structural issues that led to this disaster. Outside. Experts interviewed by NPR, said that report clearly raised important red flags that warranted further inspection and expensive repairs. Stephanie walk up. An engineer who specializes in structural collapses at Villanova University, said the painstaking probes now beginning and Surfside could find an entirely different triggering event. I'm sure there are many hypotheses right now, but until the data actually demonstrates that that yes. Could cause a collapse, which would then in turn cause a progressive collapsed in the structure. I think you're probably at least 4 to 6 months out, and it may be longer. State and local officials urged patients for these investigations. They say they're still focused on the search and rescue effort and on recovering remains of victims. Meanwhile, yesterday, the federal agency that helped probe the 9 11 twin towers collapse in New York City announced it's sending a team of scientists and engineers to help with this investigation. Brian Mann. NPR NEWS SURFSIDE, Florida We're joined now by a guest who knows firsthand why this rescue and recovery effort and the investigations are so painstakingly slow. Robert Jensen is a disaster management expert who dealt with the aftermath of 9 11, the Oklahoma City bombing and the Grenfell tower fire in the United Kingdom among many other mass casualty events. Welcome to weekend edition. Thank you. First your reaction to this collapse. Is there precedent for something like this in the United States? Yeah, There's there's unfortunately non any new disasters. And it has happened before. There's I'm really afraid this will be probably the largest non intentional collapse of ability. Last big, non intentional collapse. What's the walkway at the Hyatt Regency in Kansas City in April 1981 that killed 114 people? I don't know what the final number will be, because, of course, if they're still doing rescue, and they were always started recovery well, let's talk about that This building went from a 12 storey structure to a pile of rubble. That's only about two stories tall. Took us through briefly how you work on something like that, especially when the weather's bad. I mean, this is dangerous work. It's very dangerous Work, and Miami has a good team, and there's there's other teams in the state of Florida. Think of it as a couple of different Simultaneous operations that occur at the same time, so you have a building that's partially collapsed. So you have to stabilize the part that hasn't collapsed, so it doesn't Fall or drop debris on people working. You then have to to go to the pile. That's the term we used in Oklahoma, and usually you have the best success coming from underneath. Garages are safer and you just go very slow. It's not a question. Do you have enough people? Too many people don't help. Because you can't have jackhammers and heavy equipment. If you're trying to use microphones to listen for sound. Every action creates a reaction for moving pile or rubble pieces, so it's slow. It's painstaking. In a certain point, though, they'll switch from a rescue to recovery. Well, let me ask you about that. At what point do they switch to recovery and who decides? Well, there'll be a task force leaner. That's in charge of the the building site, and they'll make a determination that says, Look. We've gone to every void that we think we can. We're getting a point where it's not possible to sustain life because the pockets of air too small or there's just no voids, and we don't think we're going to recover anyone else. I mean, that must be a hugely painful thing for families to accept. I mean, how do you talk to them about what comes next? It is hugely painful for them. But you need to be transparent and you need to be direct. And you say Here's why. We don't think we're going to find anyone else living and you can bring in an architect and engineer. Four planes a map. You show where you've been. You show them what's left and you say at this point we don't think we're going to recover anyone alive and we're very sorry for that. What are the constraints, though, when an investigation is also underway, as it is here to determine what exactly happened? Well at the same time you're doing this. You should have an engineer or an architect. That's part of the investigation. Who's probably looked at the videos and say We're we think that we once start on four number axis, the primary location. And say, Okay, this is where we need to stop and we need to pull out this piece more carefully because we're going to have to do some analysis on them. We have to look at the concrete. We have to look and steal the rebar. We want to look at how the reverse tied together all the pieces that investigators will look at. And then you'll pull some of that out and it will go to or should go to a secure facility that's protected so you can go through it and then do proper analysis on the material. And how long does this take? Do you think for something like this months or years, and that's really months or years. It's not just one person. It's several people to people now who are probably going over the building buy ins. People who are looking at all the permitting process is people that are looking at all the previous inspections. And then people would be looking at the physical evidence and then they need to come together and say what our conclusions. They have to be careful as speculation is rife in these things. We don't want people going into a scene with a preconceived idea. You want people going into the scene to quite facts? Because we have to learn from this. Well, what are the consequences? Do you think of this? I mean, people in high rise buildings all over Miami are worried. My mother's condo building sent out a note saying, um, that the building was safe, assuring everyone that they were safe from all the disasters you've seen. What do you think? The repercussions Maybe. Well, they're being in different boxes, if you will, so there will be as the investigators go through. If they find something that's concerning. They certainly should ordered everyone else immediately. And if they find stuff that's reassuring. This says this is a one off. They should also released that so people are reassured. Miami Dade has good building codes. Now they end to win a big change in the early nineties, when Hurricane Andrew he had this building was built before that, but they still have very good codes. So I'm not sure you're gonna see a huge change in building codes like you did after again. The Hyatt I think what you will see is the ramifications are that they're going to have to decide what to do when they bring the rest of the building down. Those people have property. And there's people who evacuated who haven't lost a loved one. They certainly lost their neighbors and friends. They have to decide how they're going to get their life back to the new normal. And over B. What does the community want to do with this? The space? What about the families? It's not right now. As if you can do things for a lot of people to proof. The proof they need to start that transition to the when I call the new normal is it is seen as a body and a funeral. Because then I know this person isn't coming back. And so the consequences for each one of those families will be how they deal with that until there's a recovering identification and that again can take weeks or months. That is Robert Jensen. His company. Kenyon International Emergency Services deals with the aftermath of mass casualty events. Thank you very much. You're welcome. And you're listening to NPR news.

This is not the same as any other vaccines that anyone is getting at any point because we are not. This is akin to the polio epidemic. This is a kid to the You know the flu epidemic of 1918. This is a This is a national international emergency, and so everyone will need to get this vaccine on. Do we have a big public health list to show? People why it's safe. Why you should be doing it. And there's a lot of leading from the front. That has to happen. Um, as far as whether to give one or two doses. You know, the question is, is the science fair for that? And I think how she is rightly concerned that you know that deviates from the trials and the studies out for performed, and we don't know if you space that booster out If you space that booster out, you know, several months later, theoretically, that may be okay. But that has not been studied.
Apple reveals lower cost watch and updated iPad
"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week. We'll get to those in a bit. Want to get an Apple Watch for your kid but not give them an iphone worried that mom or dad may have a slip and fall or ended up seriously directionally challenged apple has a plan to watch the whole family. Selling points as far as apple's concerned with family setup, you can stay connected with family members without an iphone from making and receiving phone and facetime audio calls to sending and receiving messages and emails, and even connecting with other Apple Watch wearers over walkie talkie. Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that. And finally school time and downtime or front and Center for children while optimizations focused on health for older relatives take precedence at the other end of the spectrum. Now the news that will make family setup less useful for many. It requires cellular models, of Apple, watch series four or later or Apple Watch S E running watch os seven paired with iphone six s or later running IOS fourteen. Apple also said that kids and older family members of the household using family set up, we'll have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. So, while you don't need to get GRANDPA and the kids their own phones, each cellular watch will come with a tone cellular plan and. Associated Bill. Family setup goes live today and so by the way does watch Os Savon. that. was kind of surprise more on that a bit later. With such an emphasis on the health, it's not overly surprising that the new Apple Watch Slash Watch Os Combo brings a few new health studies. macrumors runs those down starting with an asthma study being run in conjunction with the Insurance Company Anthem and the University of California, Irvine. Second the peace says Apple has tied up with university health network and the University of Toronto to learn more about how Apple Watch metrics including blood oxygen can be used to manage heart failure. Finally macrumors says apple is partnering with investors at the Seattle, flew study at faculty at the University of Washington School of Medicine to explore how changes in blood oxygen and heart rate can be early signals the onset of influenza and Kobe nineteen.

Trump Wants U.S. to Get Cut of Any TikTok Deal.
"President of the United States signed two executive orders, Thursday under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and a couple other justifications forbidding transactions with tiktok owner bite dance, and any transactions with ten cents related to their Super App we chat. Each of these orders takes effect September twentieth. You might recall Microsoft has until September fifteenth to reach a deal to buy some or all of Tiktok from by dense. So there's a little bit of a gap there between win Microsoft's deadline is and when this executive order takes place.

Trump Executive Orders Target TikTok, WeChat Apps
"President of the United States signed two executive orders Thursday under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and a couple other justifications forbidding transactions with tiktok owner bite dance, and any transactions with ten cents related to their super. APP We chat. Each of these orders takes effect September twentieth. You might recall Microsoft has until September fifteenth to reach a deal to buy some or all of Tiktok from by dense. So there's a little bit of a gap there between win Microsoft's deadline is and when this executive order takes place. So that's the first thing to remember is they didn't ban the APPS they banned transactions with the companies which could cause apps to disappear and it doesn't happen until. September twentieth. So there's forty five days to figure out how this is going to work. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross will identify which transactions will be considered prohibited under the order. So that's going to change a lot of people are looking at the tencent order and saying, well, wait could this band transactions with other ten cent industries and so that will be important for the the definition from Wilbur Ross to decide is it really just we chat? The use of the emergency act is generally applied to terrorism or sometimes international trade and will likely be challenged in court. In fact, tiktok is pretty much said it's going to do that. The order claims the APPS access to user data including location browsing messaging payments, and search histories. Quote threatens to allow the Chinese Communist Party access to America's personal and proprietary information potentially allowing China to track the locations of federal employees and contractors. Bill dossiers a personal information for blackmail and conduct. `corporate espionage. This is considered in both cases, a threat to national security foreign policy and the economy of the United. States. So there's the justification they're going to have to find out in court. While, the order against we chat is likely to be narrow if it's not. It could affect ten cents non we chat businesses. In fact, some companies may just out of an abundance of caution decide to back off ten cents non we chat businesses just in case. And Ten, cent owns riot games, which makes League of legends they wholly own it. It's there's. Ten cent is also an investor in spotify snap. Read it.

The Executive Order To Ban TikTok and WeChat
"He went ahead and did it president trump has signed an executive order to block all transactions with tiktok maker Bite Dance, as well as all transactions with Chinese tech giant tencent beginning on September twentieth. Now, it's worth noting that September twentieth would be five days after Microsoft's deadline to acquire the non-chinese parts of Tiktok or not. Quoting the verge, the spread of APPs controlled by the Chinese government continues to threaten the national security foreign policy and economy of the United States. The order reads the United States must take aggressive action against the owners of Tiktok to protect our national security and quote a parallel order. Banda transactions with we chat a texting APP in China that maintains a small user base in the US in both orders, the president names, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act as authority for the move, as well as the national emergencies act effectively naming talks continued operation within the United States as a national. Emergency such. A move is highly unusual and will likely be subject to a legal challenge. The executive branch has the power to levy sanctions against individuals and corporations by them on the entity list as the US did against Y. and Z., t. e. last year but such sanctions are typically put in place by the Commerce Department rather than the White House and Senate to specific rulemaking procedures that seemed to have been short-circuited by surprise executive order. The president also has the power to force the divestiture of US companies from foreign ownership through the committee on foreign investment in the United States or. But doing so also requires a specific process that seems to have been discarded in favor of a broader executive order. It's unclear how the order will affect talks ability to operate in the short term unlike Weiwei Z. T. The company does not require licenses to operate its network and nothing in the order seems to require APP stores to seize hosting the APP. However, it explicitly covers subsidiaries of by dance specifically, the US based TIKTOK division, and we'll apply to any and all financial transfers to and from those subsidiaries as a result. TIKTOK. Likely to seek a stay of the order in court or be forced to abruptly discontinue services as it takes effect and quote. So everyone basically scrambling to figure out what all this means. There does appear to be a loophole in the order because the order has a clause that reads quote to the extent permitted under applicable law and quote. But also, as Alex, tweeted quote, if I'm reading this correctly, it obliges apple to remove chat from the Chinese APP store, which would effectively kill the company's phone business in China. China represents a little under fifteen percent of Apple's global revenue. But at the same time, the order says we chat quote has over one billion users worldwide, which means it's counting Chinese users as we chat users given the references to chat having more than a billion users. It's clearly intended to apply to the APP globally I. think that would be substantially more damaging for apple in China then losing Google services was for way in the West. I. Think and yet this is the US government doing it to both and quote indeed, Bloomberg has a piece of art that we chat is banned from the Chinese APP store. The ramifications would be huge because we chat is a communication and transaction cornerstone in modern Chinese life. Being without chat would be a big enough deal for Chinese users as to essentially possibly kill the iphone business in China, and at the very least would probably be a big deal as to go to China into some major form of retaliation. Now tencent owns wechat tencent has a market cap of six, hundred, eighty, seven, billion dollars. Its stock was down more than ten percent afterward of this executive order came down. As Dan primack tweeted quote the tencent we chat order maybe more consequential for us tech companies because it seems to ban any transactions with tencent tencent invest in lots of us, companies including fortnight maker EPIC Games. Let's play this out. tencent has an investment in read it tencent can't do transactions after forty five days. So must tencent divest within forty five days if not, how would it ever sell trying to get clarity on this to end quote? Yeah I WANNA put aside the questions as to whether or not Chinese apps represent a security threat for the moment. I for one have uninstalled Tiktok on my phone because I don't trust it. But more immediately, I think most in silicon valley are watching to see if there is. Any immediate cascading of retaliatory actions by the Chinese that could put a cramp in wet silicon valley can do globally. Sources are telling buzzfeed news that an all hands meeting Mark Zuckerberg told facebook employees that banning tiktok would set a bad precedent code I. Just think it's a really bad long-term precedent and that it needs to be handled with the utmost care and gravity whatever the solution Zuckerberg said. I'm really worried. It could very well have long term consequences in other countries around the world and quote. While noted that tick Tock Band in India in June was being hit. Now he alluded to the idea that facebook products could become a target for another country. Later, he did however sympathize with the trump administration's national security concerns. Quote. I. Certainly think that there are valid national security questions about having an APP that has a lot of people's data that follows the rules of another country government that increasingly is kind of seen as a competitor Soccer Berg said quote.
Trump effectively bans TikTok, WeChat with executive orders
"President trump had a pair of executive orders that would ban all US transactions with tiktok owner bite dance, as well as the popular messaging APP. We chat beginning September twentieth both orders site, the International Emergency Economic, Powers Act, and the National Emergencies Act as the authority for the ban claiming a band would address the national emergency with respect to the information and communication technology supply chain response from TIKTOK says, it will seek to challenge the order in court.
TikTok may get banned or sold
"Emerged that take talks China's parent by dance. WAS GONNA be forced to sell the service. Then things are snowball. We'll talk about that answer. What's gone on since? Yeah. So it's it's sort of been a rollercoaster events when it comes to what president trump wants to do. With Tick Tock Early, on Friday, it seem like the president was going to force bite dance to divest, take tectonics a US operations. But then it seemed like he changed his mind because on Friday evening, he told reporters on air. Force One that he was actually planning to ban TIKTOK and you wouldn't be in favor of the. US. Company acquiring talks US operations So I, don't know if that was more of a negotiation tactic but now it seems like a US company acquiring tiktok is back on the table dance, declare a Chinese company, and so I'm curious how. The US or what authorities the US have to force a foreign company to sell US operations. How does that work and so there's actually federal law called the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which gives the president, the authority to regulate international commerce, but they have declare a national emergency in response to a threat against the. US. So we've actually seen president trump tell US company to sell a US company that it's acquired in this happened in March there is a Chinese company that acquired a US hotel, a company, and president trump said that it poses some sort of national security breasts and basically told the Chinese company, the force, the sale of its US acquisition. So it has happened before. President trump has told reporters that he has. Some authority over this

World Health Organisation delays call on coronavirus
"So the World Health Organization supposedly was gathering this past day why they were unable to come up with the decision I'm not exactly sure I guess they're saying there's a criteria that has to be met they say what they will decide today Thursday whether to declare a global emergency over the outbreak of this new flu like virus that originated in China but it's ready if they do it would be only the sixth international emergency to be declared in the last decade that would include the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Congo those Zeca virus in the Americas back in twenty sixteen the World Health Organization director general says the decision is one that we take extremely seriously he said that he's only prepared to make it with the appropriate amount of consideration and information it isn't any involving complex situation they held their day long meeting with a panel of experts in Geneva this past day so what is the definition of a global aboard a merging the according to the World Health Organization it is in it extraordinary event that constitutes a risk to other countries and requires coordinated international response the chairman of the emergency committee was ask what gave the panel applause for moving forward with that recommendation he said it was the question of assessment of severity N. transmissibility there's questions we don't have answers to yet there's three criteria apparently for an outbreak to be clever declared an international emergency first it must be an extraordinary event which that's what to me that's all subject to interpretation to begin with number two there must be a risk of international spread I think that's already been bad and number three a globally coordinated response would be required deaths from the new virus jumped to seventeen on Wednesday more than five hundred seventy cases conserve confirmed this particular virus previously unknown to scientists was thought to have started in an animal market in that central city of Wuhan a new case detected as far away as yes the United States Kentucky I believe is the latest now this province of Wuhan is closing their transport networks in the revising citizens not to leave the city according to the report it's yeah there well into a Thursday on that part of the world bus systems subway ferry and long distance passenger transport networks are being suspended US starting at ten o'clock this morning which I believe they're already passed that in China airports and train stations will be closed check out bound passengers they're essentially looking to quarantine the the Wuhan province I believe there's something we can do eleven million people that reside there other asking people not the leave the city without specific reasons they commended the the decision to close transport this is going to help the country try to contain the outbreak not only within China but hopefully minimize the chance of spread elsewhere most of the cases have been right there in that particular province but dozens of infections of popped up this week around the country they've got millions of people traveling for the lunar new year this was one of the world's largest and you will migrations of people as they call it but we know at this point Thailand has confirmed for cases we've got a case Taiwan South Korea Japan have all reported at least one case what I found interesting is that there are British experts now they're saying now there's an unconfirmed report of a case in Mexico but they're saying ten thousand people could already be infected but we can't rule out the possibility that there could already be a case in the U. K. this new strain is currently in their words quote as deadly as the Spanish flu epidemic the nineteen eighteen outbreak the most severe pandemic in recent history wiping out an estimated fifty million people across the world this expert at the imperial college of London says more deaths are to come as fellow experts said the outbreak has reached the threshold of an international public health emergency they're saying that before the World Health Organization actually even got under way yesterday they didn't they didn't Percy but that they could declare this virus a global health crisis as their experts hold their emergency meeting in Geneva again for whatever reason they held that on Wednesday the old make some sort of an official announcement they tell us today and they were talking early on about the eleven million people in that room Honda province being put on lockdown stop traveling avoid crowds so that's that is officially under way but I was looking at one of the headlines kind of breaking down that the scientists I guess I guess scientists around the world are looking at this virus and there's there's five questions that they're trying to get answers

Headway Is Being Made But We cant slow down in race to end deadly Ebola outbreak in DR Congo,
"Is Connor Lennon from UN news. There are positive signs that the government's lead effort to end the deadly Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has turned the corner but there's no room for complacency. That's according to the. UN's emergency Ebola Response Coordinator David Gresley who was at U N headquarters on Wednesday used to take part in a ministerial level meeting to assess the more than year long efforts to end the second worst outbreak Evan he spoke to UN uses Matt Wells well. I think we're we're kind of at a more promising place than we certainly were a few months ago. When we saw a number of attacks against Ebola responders particularly in the city of Timbo uh things have advanced I think the main difference now is that not only as a greater security for responders input Timbo outside with Tim O. Vinnie. There are a lot of areas that were inaccessible in the past where where a lot of groundwork has been done to try to gain community acceptance for the response which has had a very positive impact getting into areas where the viruses circulated on a regular basis has allowed an effective response to to follow and we're seeing the cases decline and in some cases dramatically from very high levels down to practically zero so I'm increasingly optimistic with what we see in the Beanie Timbo area. We just need to see this extended to other areas where we're seeing the virus continued to circulate now a lot of different parts of the UN are are involved in this effort from health officials nice to to blue helmets from the mission is the response is joined up and as coordinated as it needs to be from your perspective. Well coordination is always a work in progress so I think it's it's coming along like I would like it to There's always more that you can work together on that. We continue to find ways to collaborate share information but I think there's a good good good spirit and I think the most important thing is that we've been able to drive that coordination down to to the lowest level where whereas most effective it's really the people on the ground that make the difference so whether it's. who or it's UNICEF effort the World Food Programme UNDP UNFPA all involved on this I o M is involved evolved on this We're seeing really good collaboration we WANNA bring our NGO partners on board all of course supporting the government of DRC who continues is to leave this response and and we're seeing I particularly I would cite the city of coordination there where I really think that has come together very nicely and it's also where we're seeing the lowest level of transmission despite the fact that this is where the epidemic generally began Health Organization chief Doc tendrils said on Wednesday the risk of spreading across the border of DRC was still high. What are you doing to try and help. This effort to limit at the risk of the way to do that of course is to eliminate the virus itself this is a very very urban area. people are surprised to hear the Timbale. Oh has more than a million people at these are large cities and it's important to understand that it's also very mobile population which allows movement between Benny Kimball but also to Ugandan border to Goma quite quite easily one or two day trip very routine and that that becomes the problem so what needs to be done is two or three three things is good preparedness around the border areas good preparedness in provinces adjacent in case the virus gets into that area. wore importantly is really just dry up the source of the virus in that central area. That's been feeding into the Ugandan border feeding into Goma and then the threat will go down. Considerably on vaccination has been some criticism. UN responses being too cautious to selective and their needs now to be a much wider wide a program initiated. What what's your view on the right way on that now. Well obviously vaccinations are very useful to think is also important to note. That vaccination by itself is probably not sufficient to end the epidemic. It can put a brake on on the spread slow it down but I in itself is probably not gonNA stop the epidemic but also also saves lives that's extremely important so that the best use of the vaccine is a constantly evolving question how best utilize that which populations are at greatest risk and I think as as Dr Tendrils says we learn as we go along as we adapt as we see the situation as new tools become available like therapeutics extremely extremely important tool to add to the arsenal against Ebola a bit by bit. We're making a bullet into a more normalized disease. and I think ultimately ultimately what we would like to see is that the bullet treatment centers themselves be seen as a place where you go to get cured of Bulla not die every bullet which is often the perception that totally turns and transforms the psychological aspect of bill as a disease. I mean Katie there have been some serious obstacles to be able to reach suspected suitcases and bill to clamp down on this outbreak most obviously the the ongoing violence at the hands of armed groups and the Phibro political situation in that region engine house the effort going there and in terms of countering that and also how successful the effort to try and win hearts and minds of people to get the trust of local people especially in rural communities where they are quite understand very very distrustful pretty much anybody in authority on the political side of the election of president. She's Katie with a long ways to offsetting the the politicization of Boll back at the end of last year when people have been put timber were not allowed to vote for the presidency and there's a I take a new opportunity and and you see it even talking with local militia groups of an interest in finding a reconciliation with the government in a way to move forward. It's very early early in that process but it's a different attitude at this point in time that makes it a little bit easier to work with so I think all the political side some very positive things now on the on the security side. It's a little bit different different. That's a mix you have on the one hand the Allied Defense Forces a Ugandan led group. That's based in the DRC has used extreme means of of attack only military police targets civilian as well terrorist acts basically and killing tens and sometimes hundreds of people full That's a very serious threat that disrupted the response late last year that has been less of a problem since MANISCO together with the Congolese army led a an offensive against the group in late last year November which pushed them back far enough to longer and have a direct impact but they remain in ongoing danger to the response and military action will still be required to keep keep them at bay the more domestic militia groups groups locally known as my my are different kind of threat they they are very much embedded in the communities. They're not in opposition to the communities and they are very suspicious and distrustful of national security forces which is where a problem comes often in the communities. There's a big distrust over over the Bulla response itself so it's a difficult combination but not an impossible and and engagement of the right people who have influence over leaders of these groups can make a difference to try to open up access quite frankly where Ebola has circulated for a period of weeks six people have died from Bulla that to demystify and takes the myth away because people see real and then then it's another opportunity for engagements very tragic way for that to happen but what we're seeing particularly benefit timbo areas that many of the areas that were inaccessible where there was transmission one by one or opening up with acceptance and that's the key is acceptance. It's not overcoming insecurity with acceptance you get security with acceptance you get the ability to treat people people with acceptance you get to bring this to an end most recently in in the city of Benny there was one area health area that had the highest rate of transmission of any healthier in the country twice that of the second highest that was only a matter of weeks ago at the beginning of August by middle middle of August with a lot of work on the ground with governments and an NGO and UN support that area opened up to full acceptance now. There's hardly any case of Ebola there in one by one. We're seeing these health areas come around for that. and that's leading to what we're seeing on. The dramatic decline in cases is between Benny and Timbo the very area that fed all these other localities in Uganda Goma on the Rwandan border and South Cube so we need to they do now the same province which is now has the largest number of cases in the country to gain the confidence and acceptance of populations there that's incomplete and that I work at least intensifies we can protect those communities but also prevents the spread east and West from tour. I mean that's a real threat as we speak today today. So what more support what will help does the government and the UN led response needed a stage from the international community. I think first of all it's important to note the the the technical leadership of government for the EVOLA response is extremely well qualified. They know he bulla as well as anybody. In the world led by Professor William Bay so they have the technical expertise what's required is the kind of support that I've described of course financial support ongoing support and coordination locally. I think is important. The neutrality and impartiality the peacekeeping force brings national security forces often cannot bring in that kind of environment. These are all different aspects that that are important. I what I think we need to see as well as a continued improvement and preparedness sadness both in the country and outside we really don't want this to spread any further and if the the important thing is to detect early if you detect early rapid response as possible and you close it down very very quickly so we need to make sure that happens and the and the other thing is really required. Is there still areas that are inaccessible where there's no known transmission but we're not sure because we're not there isn't endemic diseases yeah well. It's not there's no evidence that it's in these areas but we should be there to make sure it has not come in and circulating quietly secondly it would be good to get into these areas in the event that infection does come into that area better to be there ahead of time working with communities supporting them in other ways so that when the infection does come where a far better position to deal with quickly quickly rather than allowing to come up as another hot spot possible the international emergency state status that the disease has now the outbreak has it at this point that that could be lifted some time in the in the near future as soon as it's a radically aided and it's clear that it's it's a radical that of course that will be lifted at the appropriate time I think we have several well several weeks at a minimum to go. We need to get probably well into the end of the year. There's a forty two day period at at the end of the last case before. It's finally declared so we're we're weeks and weeks away from that one thing. That's not require right now is complacency. Success is good but it's incomplete and it's always at risk and we can see an explosion of cases if we if we stop the the kind of support that's going on. We need to be everywhere all the the time with everything going so we just need that kind of support internationally to keep going until we finish the job one last thing. I would think that's important is that we need to start thinking about the postie bullet period. It's not too early to do that. We need to start thinking what we're going to do to support number one survivors because they will continue to have health problems after this is over secondly. There's the possibility that they still carry residual amounts of the virus. You can have a new cases uses. come up later on so the surveillance system needs to be there to make sure that that's detective quickly probably more importantly is the recovery of the of the systems on the ground whether it's health education have been affected by this and then a broader support to the public health system. The bulla outbreak of nature of this outbreak is a function of poor governance and poor public health systems. If those causes are not dealt with effectively then this the whole thing could happen once again so we have to the root cause of why this became such a large epidemic.
The Facts You Need to Know About the Amazon Rainforest Fires
"Arjun pleased to save the rainforest as the amazon burnt. Forest fires are raging in the rainforest. There have been nearly seventy three thousand fires this year already a more than eighty percent increase compared to last year with international crew taste but world is demanding action the french president emmanuel macron has described as an international emergency. You were seeing presidents residents. You're seeing celebrities and actor. Leonardo dicaprio working to help combat the wildfires in the amazon rainforest climate. You were seeing these really alarming posts hosts and these photographs of patches of rainforest on fire. The smoke is traveling far and wide. I think many people understandably were left with the impression that that within a few days amazon was going to be reduced to a pile of ashes the amazon rainforest the so-called lungs of the world are now filling filling with smoke the think in many people's minds there was a clear billion in this directly blaming the record fires in the amazon on brazilian president should the president into brazil jay naidoo who has shifted his government's approach on the environment in a really traumatic way for since scientists warn this could be a devastating blow to the fight against climate change there have been and this is certainly a story about climate change and it's a story about president wilson i do but it's a far imagination origination the amazon forest right this is the save the rainforest camping and does this movement have an effect in brazil it does but but i think it's important to note that it is greeted with very deep skepticism and to an extent paranoia in some circles. I think there's long been of you you among conservative nationalist brazilians that all this outcry about the fate of the rain forest was really a veiled attempt. Take keep brazil from developing its god given potential <hes> i think many brazilians saw these calls to preserve the amazon as infringing fringing its sovereignty and for many years they were pretty dismissive about this and they said that the fate of the amazon was only for brazil and and its neighbors to think about debate about and decide on so what happens to this development of amazon during the nineteen ninety s and the early early two thousands we see deforestation reaching really staggering levels concern around the world. I think reaches a point where the brazilians can no longer ignore what people outside of the country were saying about this so when president lula a leftist is is an office in the early two thousands he appoints a woman who was from the rainforest to serve as his minister of the environment her name is meena arena silva and she came up with a really bold in ambitious plan to reign in deforestation and create more conservation areas you know she was somebody who was lauded across the world for doing something that people thought was almost impossible to sorta stop these loggers and these miners and these farmers from reaching deeper and deeper into the amazon year after year after year and for while brazil was pretty successful

Trump orders US companies to stop doing business with China
"Trump said that american companies are hereby ordered to stop manufacturing in china despite trump himself and his daughter ivanka doing tons of business with wait for for it china that tweet led to a stunning reversal on wall street c._n._b._c. posted eleven o four stocks plunged followed by a series of tweets showing join the markets tumbling down down down the time span of the c._n._b._c. twitter chronicle of trump taking the stock market all his own one hour and forty three minutes and all because has trump had a temper tantrum about his trade with china resulting in a spooked stock market trump ordering u._s. companies how to do business and trump's fed chair labeled an enemy for not doing his a bit perfect. No i'm not happy with jay powell. I don't think he's doing a good job at all. I don't think he's much of a chess player. Oh you i want him to resign. Let me put it this way if he did. I wouldn't stop dude. You hired him. Joining me. Now is korean air coupon. I don't work elliott was style of above the lot dot com john harwood of c._n._b._c. the aforementioned juliane malveaux economist author and rachel bit of biblical for of the wason jason center for public policy go for being here. I'm going to come to you first on this elliott because donald trump is i hereby order kim jong un style order to american companies. What did you stop doing business with china right now. Name companies take their stocks. Does he have such a power. We have this arguing comfortable with the fact that donald trump can do whatever john roberts says he can do there and if y'all don't like that y'all should have gone to the mattresses garlic because that's why we're here now. The authority that trump is arguing that has is under something called the international emergency economic powers act it works much like the national emergencies act which means that when the president says i feel like mrs an emergency he gets wide latitude to do all kinds kinds of crazy things much like essentially planned economy like china would have the authority to do but there is an important supreme the first of all there's an important part of the statute which says that he can only declare the emergency the unusual and extraordinary circumstances china existing extraordinaire right. It's just a thing uh-huh so there's there's very little very little legally binding precedent to suggest that trump can declare national emergency and national economic emergency yeah based on china existing time to them have been used before was against iran when they took actual american hostages. That's the last time that's one of the last times this was used and and they're a supreme court precedent on that one of william rehnquist's most famous decisions is upholding the presidential authority to do whatever he wants to stop iran dan but very limited to the situation where iran has taken aggressive unusual extraordinary action against american citizens. There's nothing to suggest that that's what china has done right and if john roberts understands that there's nothing to suggest that trump can get this done well. It's john harwood. I'm gonna go to you next because i did varo the c._n._b._c. tweets which was extraordinary. I was watching it on twitter. It was happening and there are the markets up with the market's down. Oh my god he's taking like it happened in order on this same issue clearly clearly someone told donald trump hey in nineteen seventy seven thousand nine hundred seventy seven act that is ellie points out was used against iran. Maybe you can use that against china or maybe they said f._d._r. Doc was able to make steel companies make planes right and so he thinks he can just do it because somebody told them i doubt he's ever read the history that we just espoused right right and the question is donald trump a willing to invoke emergency powers and sanction american companies as the united states sanctioned iran in the hostage crisis or this law was also used to freeze assets in the war on terror after nine eleven is he gonna put u._s. U._s. multinationals in that bucket and treat them that way.
