It's going to have a about a 21 Ft Wide Mirror, which is three times almost three times the diameter of the Hubble. And it will be working in infrared, so you can see much further because it can see through Hubble's mostly visible and ultraviolet wavelengths. So an infrared you can see past all the dust and the junk that's out in the deeper parts of the universe. And really start looking back at the very edge of the beginning of time, which is very promising, and it's gonna be parked what they call Earth Sun l two or the Grange to which is a stable point out beyond, uh, Earth's orbit, so it'll be in the Earth's shadow all the time.

"I'm John that the John Batchelor show it is the spring of sixteen thirty and four ships are setting sail for the New World boards are purists one in particular is more important than any other because here we are in the twenty first century stills quoting John Winthrop the future governor of what will become the Massachusetts Bay Colony the bay colony itself the quote of course we shall be as a city upon a hill the eyes of all people are upon us a wonderful new book sweeping in and its understanding of the Puritans and America and the tradition of free warship freedom liberty is Roger Williams and the creation of the American soul church St and the birth of liberty John berry John M. Barry's the author congradulations John and a good evening to you John Winthrop at that moment saying goodbye at the lizard to England to the crown everything he's known who is he and why are they going to the New World good evening to you our first banks and what Winthrop was an attorney and he was a man who had tremendous leadership abilities but he was still himself failing in England he also felt as as most of the Puritans who went with him felt that England was going to help quite literally they felt that that god had made a covenant with with England that England was a chosen chosen land of god but that England had become so simple that a broken that cabinet and they were carrying that to the New World to New England and of course they certainly did believe that they were founding a Christian nation John would serve as a puritan and in order to understand his moment in history right then as he begins to step into New England we need to go back not all the way to Elizabeth but to James the first and James the first contest with a man man Edward Cooke and also for Francis Bacon what is cook and what will become bacon to the King James the first woke up is the greatest judge in English history and I doubt that many of your listeners have recognized his name but every American over the age of five probably knows his most famous ruling which is the house of everyone is as as castle and that ruling appeared in my eyes is great confrontation he had with the Qingming wanting James who believes and the divine right of kings that he basically had absolute power over England and and cook stood up to him and and he ended up in the tower of London although and at which time he said of the king desires my head he knows where he may find it but uses this incredible figure and the history of political freedom and in fact for the amendments in the bill of rights along with the habeas corpus clause of our constitution to send come directly from something that he had written at the time I was struck by that John I'm glad you make up and seize on it right away that the man that we home we celebrate as the founding fathers of more than US two almost two centuries later we'll use the language that cooking vans to go up against the crown and one cook goes up against the crown he's going up against a man who will cut off his head in fact you will torture him on the way if he crosses him but cook also uses parliament how how how does parliament challenged the king at the time cook is a jurist but parliament it represents the people what is fact challenge for well it was well over two issues number one was the with taxes not a surprise the authority of the king to collect taxes was supposed to be limited by parliament but but both James and and his son went forward without any parliamentary authority that was one of the issues and the other was religion in the lifetime of people still around in the early sixteen hundreds in England had been Catholic on the Henry the eighth and became Protestant then I went back to Catholic again then it became Protestant again and there was this threat that change games both of whose parents were Catholic and it was moving the church of England closer closer to Catholic warship Puritans believed that that the king was was gonna turn the church of England back into the Roman Catholic Church and and the two tensions over the political power whether or not the king had total arbitrary authority or whether or not he was underneath the law which cook insisted on that was one of the issues and the second was this tremendous tension over religion over the persecution of Puritans there are a lot of laws in England which were designed against Catholics but James stopped using them against Catholics and started using them against Puritans to force total conformity to more more Catholic style warship in the church of England James the first is a lustful and cunning creature he a he rules with an iron hand but he's challenged all the time by Edward cook and parliament now and again eight the challenge is over the puritan it comes to be over the Puritans but they are playing about warship they want your trip your warship having to do with the scriptures none of the trappings of the Catholic Church certainly and they think the church of England invented by Henry the eighth they think that's too fancy that's too close to the Catholic warship the book of Common Prayer why does that become a dispute between the crown and the Puritans well for the precise reasons that you're that you're saying they they also thought that that was meant if you if you've played according that book of Common Prayer that was road warship and they were very passionate and and their warship was very personal and they they the spot they despise to spot hypocrisy and self that boxy itself was it was sinful and road warship was one step toward that hypocrisy so there was great tension over the forced use of the book of Common Prayer there was great tension over wearing the surplus there was a kind of guerrilla warfare that a lot of Puritans carried on in in in terms of destroying crucifixes and wherever they were destroying stained glass and great cathedrals because as you said they wanted this plain simple warship is Roger Williams he's born in sixteen oh three and he is now a teenager and Edward cook this very very elaborate Joris adopt him in a fashion as if he's an apprentice at the time in sixteen twenty one cook spends a lot of money to put Williams in the Charterhouse school sixteen twenty three Williams goes off to Cambridge and he studied Hebrew group can laugh and he's a very gifted young man he's watching the Puritans contend with the king there's always the threat of an inquisition I have this wonderful quote from your book Richard Montague before god it will never be well until we have our inquisition the Puritans are where of this and they're aware that there is always at any moment a chance of a rest does that drive their resistance or not it does not empower them John absolutely well it it it's part of a big part of why they ended up many of them are tens of thousands of them during a couple of decades left England most of them for New England in the end that threat was certainly a major driving force that and there are economic problems in England there is a lot of disruption over international trade which was also a factor feudalism was was and named the modern age was beginning that was just tremendous displacement and a lot of other things going on that were also influences on on what they did but but I think number one was this religious tension the persecution the fact that they could be jailed and jailed after I need tremendous physical brutality and again if the the political issue was parallel and intertwined with that but a little bit separate it took was not a puritan but cook was the leader on the political front demanding that freedom B. B. honored the English traditions of freedom England was very different from the rest of Europe which it you know the snoring David all of Europe was going the way of autocratic rule the French parliament met in the early sixteen hundreds and.

F. they come from many countries and Simon follows all of their stories but we need to go back to the beginning of this style of love to drive if you seen the movie you know it's a special camp how is it constructed to keep men from escaping Simon yeah well I actually write it is designed specifically to be asking for and so they put in special defined features in the camp first of all the site where the camp is built is picks specifically because of the bill there is a fine serving yellow sand on the surface and beneath its like a gravelly grace soil so the Germans and all that digging is a favorite method of the skate by prisoners so they know that it in me to try to dig their way out the door that they have to get rid of underground is different than the dirt on the surface of the compound so it's going to be very hot difficult to hide different colors so that's one of the primary reasons another reason is that far away from the Swiss border so no escape term and would be tempted to try and make it to neutral territory and then some of the design features they put in to make the place that is in most cancer if you wanted to come all the way out all you had to do was why the floorboards up in your hot and then just started digging straight down in the ground it was directly beneath the floor installed with three they built the they built a hospital so they're raised from the ground and then each hot had to cement columns that posed as foundations almost beneath the kitchen area almost beneath the rough the restroom area so lemon did want to tunnel through the floor there hot in into the ground it affects the tunnel through the front man columns that service foundations and the Germiston think number one and wouldn't want to do that too much work number two if they did do it you know it would be heard some of the other things they did they sank subterranean microphones down in the ground microphones on ten ten feet down so if you did have to dig a tunnel you have to dig deep to cut the microphones with the ticket up they'll support trap doors in the fourth of the heart so guards could climb under the hot and stick their heads up into the trap doors and look into the house to see if any sort of secret activity was going on they also put trap doors in the roots of the hot so they can look at you know survey in makes their all these things have never been done before but you know at the start of the war if Kate plus the new science you know the M. prisoners with service learning how to perfect the escape trade and the Germans were learning how to detect it and so the dentist all of three seven took all the lessons that we learned in the past and some coalesced into this one camp none the less seen them none the less as they all come together in style of glove dry the officer our A. F. officers quickly form an escape committee almost as if they put together a start up operation made up of all of the best to skate escaped prisoners from previous camps all of the best were putting to this camp that's the nature of this this is the this is the brilliant five hundred and there is a plan put in place immediately to build Tom Dick and Harry don't you wonder sometimes I'm in as if this is being a written by a master novelist and yet these men actually did name that was three tunnels Tom Dick and Harry they start digging immediately despite all these obstacles that Simon is act has illustrated here and of the Germans are unaware of this because the men are so skilled at covering their steps and at digging how big is the tunnel that they build Tom Dick and Harry Simon the tunnels are several hundred feet long just to give you an idea you know I I previously mentioned that the Germans had some subterranean microphones down into the ground ten feet down so before the man could even start taking over the horizontal axis in of the horrors almost after the tone they protected the X. thirty feet down underground so they had to dig through the guilt concrete pillars that were holding out for the Hans Ritter of the several feet high and once they hit the dirt beneath that they had to dig thirty feet down and then start digging horizontal shaft now one of the security aspect of style of the three was all the hot replaced at least a hundred feet away from the main security gate the main security fence that surrounded the camp so he had to dig a hundred feet before he even crossed underneath the surrounding gate makan.

"I'm John Batchelor this is the John Batchelor show E. cigarettes having never looked at them seriously until this moment I puzzled that they were a way for people who are addicted to smoking especially cigarettes to wean themselves off of it so the day that they can be free of this burden of this drug but E. cigarettes are profoundly different in fact the packaging and marketing now suggests motives that net are necessary to explore metric tool is here for the New York times writing about E. cigarettes E. smoking and the promotion of this by the very same companies that sell cigarettes to the young and to those two will old enough to know better but you can't stop smoking matter very good evening to you was I wrong to presume that E. cigarettes were meant to be a remedy to get off the tobacco good evening to good evening good evening so yes very short us big snapshot is he a you cigarettes are a booming market they were started by people who said they would become or will become a an alternative to smokers they do not have the tall are they do have the nicotine and so they are the their promoters say that they're healthier but now among the biggest purveyors of them are the tobacco companies themselves raising lots of difficult questions Reynolds American Altria and we're looking at them marketing with these incredible labels I'm reading this label because it's reproduced next to Matt story this product is not a smoking cessation product and has not been tested as such this product is intended for use by persons of legal age or older it goes on and on making threatening remarks by the end of this I'm dead I'm I've I've suffered from every possible kind of mentality and I've done and I'm in a call I'm in a coffin do they mean to scare me I might like this well you're again you're asking questions we can't know the answers to because we're not in the tobacco industry. board room but to just summarize again what you're saying here comes this this a potential alternative sold by people who would compete against big tobacco no big tobacco's in the market and they're putting warnings on their versions of E. cigarettes that are much stronger even than the warnings they have on actual cigarettes it has led to the some in the E. cigarette industry to think just as you say that this is an effort to dissuade people from trying E. cigarettes as an alternative to smoking. I tell you what the the cigarette industry the tobacco industry says. they say we are giving you the best available science we want to be tres open and transparent and in fact all these things could be true at once one of the things about E. cigarettes right now is we don't know a ton about their long term affection they are very new it is generally widely understood that they are less harmful then cigarettes but it is not known whether they have what to what extent they all are risky. E. cigarette I don't smoke mad and I'm not sure I understand you take out what looks like a cigarette but it's made of something that's not paper it's plastic and in it is a chemical that you're absorbing does it burn doesn't have the smoke do you look like Humphrey Bogart when you're smoking well some of them do there is this market has exploded it is a true capitalist phenomenon to about three billion dollars in like anything that explodes there are lots of variations some are like the Humphrey Bogart image but many an increasingly many are these sort of refillable pipes that can take lots of different forms from these long digital looking hands you put in the lake would you inhale a computer chip prompts a battery to keep up the link would it which is a combination of nicotine and some solvents goes into your mouth. most of the nicotine is absorbed in your mouth in up into your brain but some of it gets inhaled into your lungs and then you bring it out in a big puff of smoke E. cigarette nicotine is the addictive drug as I recall from warnings about not smoking that I can recall the consuming forty years ago so this looks to be suggestive Lee addictive does he cigarette does the E. cigarette business or particularly Cynthia Cabrera you speak to her she's the executive director of the smoke free alternative trade association translation she's an industry lobbyists for E. cigarettes do they acknowledge that these are addictive well what we let's leave her out of it I have had a conversation with a drug addiction with her per se and I don't want to miss quote because I think she has a new wants to view but let me just give you the broad view. nicotine is generally understood to be addictive and depending on how it goes into your body one of the most addictive what I mean by that is when you inhale nicotine into your lungs from a cigarette it gets absorbed in small particles in your long tissue and goes very quickly to the brain and that makes it one of the most addictive chemicals that we know about however if you take nicotine in a gum or patch form which are basically medicinal tools to get you off smoking it's considered less addictive because of the way it's absorbed in other words nicotine is addictive the extent to which it's addictive depends on how you ingested let's be cynical now we've we've done the straight talk mad I recall very early on the street yeah that that very early on watching a World War two movie two heroes on the deck of a carrier they're going to make an incredible attack against the Japanese imperial Japanese navy and they're smoking cigarettes and one turns to the other and say have you got any more of those coffin nails that's nineteen forty three okay right I can recall thinking well that certainly tells people not to do this does it but it didn't work that way it didn't work that way for most of my young. when I was a young person in college people smoke people smoke frequently even though the warnings were there so let's bring this up to date putting this warming warning on E. cigarettes if it follows the same logic of coffin nails makes it more attractive not last or people ignore warnings entirely is it's just buzz alarm it's a great first of all people ignore warnings so so what's really what's really more interesting about the story we just put on the front page and then move we move to the front of the business section and for the second edition but what's really interesting is that why he why they're doing it but to your point yes it has these warnings have marginal value I just want to say something about the story you told about it was a movie right with a black and white a Hollywood movie of fighting the Japanese. more important it wasn't the first what's so interesting about that is no matter what the warning said you start still saw some cool movie actors like smoking a cigarette right so that so really the more the the the the this actually does go to the very question we're describing right now if I if I might just add something the biggest worry of public safety advocates some public health advocates about E. cigarettes isn't the nicotine is whether or not it will inspire and make cool smoking again.

"I'm John that this is the John Batchelor show space the final frontier but it requires organization and right now that is a debate in the United States the Air Force the space command really created and empower the trump administration and a vision for something that I like to call the space force what is to be done I welcome Peter Garretson writing most recently at the hill about the missing components for the U. S. going into space engineering and space exploration that is a vision a big vision Peter is an independent strategy consulting he looks very carefully at space and defense is a senior fellow in defense studies with the American foreign policy council most importantly his previous job when he was in uniform lieutenant colonel United States Air Force was director of the air university space horizons task force that's the think tank for our space he was also deputy director of America's premier space strategy program the Schriever scholars Peter a very good evening to you we have news from the far side of the moon it's not clear but the Chinese are indicating that you two two when it was powering down for a nap this is their rover that they've done very well with these last weeks part of Changi for a part of their overall program for space exploration you too to spotted something in its camera that had a luster and the color and us and a consistency gel Lyte that is it did in discontinuous from the surrounding lunar surface suggesting of course they found some that we don't know what it is but I use this is an example of the Chinese program going straight ahead ignoring or indifferent to where the Americans pose press the space program is are we in competition with the Chinese and it does space command or the airforce answer the Chinese competition good evening to appear. good evening John so I believe absolutely we are in competition with Chinese and I think overall that competition is going to be good for both countries and good for humanity because competition is something that typically brings out the best in the house and the ability to go faster. it's also competition the jury much matters to the future of humanity because how we among free nations would organize things is likely very different than how China would organize things is if they have the preponderance of power and so if we want to see a future where we have the kind of open commerce and protection of human liberties that we see on the high seas then it's in our interest to have in space we have honors which is a lady that can protect that and if we fail to do that then we will look back on it I'm sure in wonder or no appropriately where we've made that mistake exploration private enterprise is talking about Mars the lan must SpaceX's now entertaining landings arms on Mars that's all wonderful exploration however your piece in the hell suggests that that's not enough why isn't it enough Peter how how can it be more. well I think this is one of the great opportunities that exists for this generation of folks to think about what they want for the future so I try to contrast he works one is exploration and the others development and we think about exploration that war has the connotation of being experimental first of a kind transient. in sort of a in a sort you mentality whereas development economic development involves infrastructure it involves return on investment involves ever expanding levels of participation and probably the most important associated ward at scale. when you think about when you think in terms of exploration you're thinking about a destination of doing something once when you think about. development you're thinking about scale and in this case I'm talking. build it matters the global balance of power. so we're talking about a new industrial revolution in space with space resources within space manufacturing that will create well in the dollars of new economic opportunity and that well will accrue to the powers that pursuit and differentially those that have the best strategy. do the Chinese have a plan to monetize space and do we have anything comparable. the Chinese absolutely help what I think is an elegant clam first they directed the agency to to monetize space at scale to make use of its vast energy in material resources do we have such a plan I guess that would happen. yeah Basil's you one mosque they have in mind such a plan American new space how such a plan and has had such a plan for a very long time. but unfortunately they sort of never been able to break in to the the serious policy dialogues with in Washington which has been sort of coopted by this very narrow vision of exploration so you know what we have is we we have historically had organizational cultures that sort of look at this as their turf and and didn't particularly have an interest in expanding it beyond that now you know we're seeing particularly under this massive ministry a much greater interest in trying to involve many different players and I think that would be the talking points at the highest level are close but not quite there we do not yet have a clear national vision for space industrialization we don't have a clear national vision for space development the space command just stood up for enhanced augmented whatever the proper political term as does that have the makings of a vision of a monetizing vision because we're good at making money for given a chance. hi I think not and I think the problem is this week what a space command is is just like we have in the United States in number of combatant commands we have a cyber command we have a global strike command we have a transportation command more importantly we have the European command the US and the Pacific command and us and the Central Command and these focus attention either on a function or a function or they focus attention on the geography. in this case we we really haven't clearly enough decided what how we think about space in my view there's only one right answer you have to think about space as a geography and you have to think about how you protect not just the military aspects of.

"I'm john batchelor this is the john batchelor show rwanda immediately you think of an event in the late twentieth century you've heard about it you've seen the movie hotel rwanda you've certainly heard the conversation it permeates the united nations security council special when it comes into the thought of what was what was it that we could do what is to be done what if it happens again rwanda's small state it's almost impossible to find unless you're very careful about a a map of sub saharan africa it's to the east of congo the large place of congo it's people are divided you're told by the news reports between the hutu and the tuzi that is in articulate this is rwanda there many languages it has a population now having recovered from the massacres of some twelve million i go to rwanda this time however not as a geopolitical explore but as a reader of a new book that is exactly what you need to restore confidence in a country ravaged by genocide the book is a thousand hills to heaven love hope and a restaurant in rwanda josh ruxton is the author i welcome in congratulations josh you are professional and you run a professional restaurant called heaven in rwandan ca golly as well as you run a website because you're a lifer i believe is an n._g._o. you've volunteered early out of the crave is a cradle as i understand it josh your parents committed you to a traveling the world and doing the works of n._g._o. let's begin with your websites because then we'll go to the story of how rwanda got to be in recovery from the genocide what is health builders i'm looking at it right now what will people find when they go to that site global health builders dot org good evening josh good evening john thanks so much for having me on health builders is an organization that i founded with a number of partners to do two things one is to provide management interventions to improve health care and it services in rwanda and the other is actually to build brand-new health infrastructure which is turned over to the government of rwanda and managed by them the site is self explanatory so i plugged right into the book because we're going to build the restaurant but first we begin with a mystery that josh introduces me to in a chapter called bridge of death was that the same was that hutus and took sees and was and what brought it to an end in ninety two that explains the outbreak in ninety four in nineteen ninety-two actually thousands of people gathered at numata church and there was a nun there by the name of tanya locatelli and the interim way the genocidal killers were actually gearing up to massacre everyone as was at that time common practice every couple of years every several months there were these extraordinary massacres that had been happening since nineteen fifty nine in rwanda but on that particular occasion in nineteen ninety-two tanya look at tally manage to reach i believe b._b._c. and explain that this massacre was about to happen and a phone call was placed to the head of media within the government of rwanda and word went out halt that massacre that massacre did not occur but sadly for her she was murdered just about a week later in retribution so that was a theme that everybody carried inside them with for the april ninety four event they recognized that they knew what was happening they didn't know what was happening but as they had been saved in nineteen ninety two there was some thought that perhaps they would be spared again in nineteen ninety four but as we all know that sadly is not what came to all right let's go to rwanda you are an educated ngo worker that he is a profession i follow it very carefully i speak all the time about the successes are everywhere you right now are are connected to columbia university you have a direct a direct link to an excellent program lot of resources you and your wife however make a decision some years ago i believe it's two thousand six correct me josh to traveling to rwanda and to you go there first and you read a house i think you rent a house in the same part of the city the hills as i read ca golly they're hills and you run a house very near the original hotel rwanda what was your mission when you first went there i had an extraordinary opportunity to start and manage the millennium villages project which is a massive multinational poverty reduction program in well over doesn't places and the second was to run health builders which at the time would beginning to work at dozens of health centers improving the management of health care systems and basically making sure that the basics got done that nurses got paid on time if they got their fair wages and that the pharmacy was well stocked with drugs and would never run out that was the original mission and you go to a place that you know is pre weighed down by ghost because of the massacre in fact i think very early on in the house that you and your wife move into and you raise your children people came and knocked at the door and said there were bones in the in the yard is that correct very early on in our lives there there was a knock at the door and a very modest woman came in with some family members and explained that she knew that her brother had been killed in our neighborhood at the height of the genocidal frenzy and wanted to make the request that in a few weeks time the whole family would gather and dig up his bones and return them and you you provided them access and all of that but what did you think of it at the time josh that this was something you hadn't prepared for i had an i had a reaction as a reader like wow i don't know where this story is going what were your thoughts josh i'll tell you john at that time the genocide they'll felt so fresh in everyone's minds and it was written on people's faces and in the streets of kigali the transformation had begun but it definitely had not picked up full steam and so at that time that seemed that seemed could tidiane because when there were big rains there would be bones that would wash out in the streets and actually in the course of writing the book i actually noticed that the door frames on our house were all repaired and i i didn't know what had happened and i actually went to our next door neighbor who really deserves the nobel peace prize he saved thousands he literally purchase people's lives at the height of the genocide while he was serving the italian consulate his name parent tonio costa and i asked tonio what had happened and he gratefully told me that four people had been murdered in our home one more detailed rwanda's the product of colonial exploitation and brutality over the course of one hundred fifty years it's continuous as i understand it with the same brutality in congo the hutus and the tooth sees now that i've read your book and and and watch these people work together they're not actually separate tribes are they this distinction that was imposed by outsiders Distinction was completely a creation of colonization in order to have a ruling class and it was. impart based on features but more than anything else it was based on the number of cows that you owned and if you had more than ten cows you were a to z and if you had fewer you were hutu for generations and generations people had intermarried and outside of that creation people viewed themselves as rwandese i'm speaking with josh roofs and and we're going when we come back we're going to meet a remarkable man blaze kara bucci who worked right after the genocide with the minister of health and is part of the recovery program these many of these decades later for health builders and then we're going to go to a restaurant called heaven i'm john batchelor the book is a thousand hills to heaven love hope in a restaurant in rwanda by josh ruxton this is the john batchelor show balance of nature changing the world one life at a time on balance of nature since i started i have not gotten one cold i kind of fight everything i get a little tickle but it goes away it's just a amazing the difference i felt i want you to know

I think the most important today for us is to thank the United States as hosts contact for this Stokes because it indicates that Washington is getting involved and Washington is getting into it, and of course, the participation and welcome by best of Bolton shows a high level attention to this issue, which is by itself, important. I, I wish we would we would. Oh, I would always when there was the meeting will always hopeful more substantive outcome. Subsidies outs, of course, the hopes before Washington meetings, and I think I do think that meeting in Washington deserves and deserve the bet. But if I mentioned in terms of the moving forward towards substance. But the meeting itself is important, because that's shows because what is important that the United States and coaches and both sides today to support a commitment to the peace process under the always see musical, which is should secure that dish in. You means is the main negotiating buddy, which is cultured by the United States and has. This is why it's often potent. We the meeting went on a good point out that the to the Tico chose visiting Russia, fast and the United States. And I think it goes to kit. It goes in this case to host co-chair to and a chauffeur, who tied very hot to move the first when you somebody's today, they've very potent think of, oh, this is, of course, to achieve peace, but fundamentally that means of the soldiers to the barracks and was though I'm forces from two tiptoes, which Yoko pied vitamin. Yeah, that's an assistant. And that's of course, it key to any solution in the future. I mean, there's no, there's the way that I want to recover some of this, that I've learned from traveling to, as more than once and also reading about the matter this conflict that is. Not resolved the fighting stop nominally nine hundred ninety four so we're twenty five years later and the land Nagorno-Karabakh is fertile land. I could see it. I'm in the farmers on one side were raising huge melons and tomatoes. And the land has been abuse now for twenty five years, and there have been violent incidents along the border. There was one right before, I toured the front line, and there was one recently during wet. Oh S C inspection. Who gains from this help us in America understand who is who is advantage. You always look for somebody making money who's who was who profits from this tragedy that you can see where no one is eating, or, or prospering and the million people were disowned, so who, who sinister enough to say, this is a good thing for me. Well, I hope nobody owns the would say that, that's a good thing. But that oh, you, you put out absolutely. The most important thing. Nick question, we keep asking neighbors over thirty years of the conflict. So two thousand people that more than a million votes. Have you achieved what has been the achievement? The lead menia. What have you? I mean, what was the big benefit thought me other than immediately economic decline? And in fact, even a demographic decline. Which is declining compared to others, which will make a dose of population, you know, at some point, I mean, it's still fun offensive. I mean you mentioned he said, look, it's about human beings, and he's yesterday was a day, I so that you initially one million people who kicked out from their homes, you so that you saw the, that's technically people used to live there. Now the only in the G. Housing day, as she cannot go back to the homes. They cannot visit the game. So their families, they cannot come home benefits. So if people when you to specked humid alive, and I actually kind of puzzled you mentioned that in this conversation on what had the, the fullness of what it means as we need depend with peace to peaceful solution. We cannot certain on the other hand, the very same day. Defacements meanest says, I have personally ordered to kill. Jenny servicemen. I mean I I it's very difficult to understand. And unfortunately, I don't maybe people just don't understand the benefits and dividends of peace. That is something which I think might be one of these. Maybe they'll be some other about this, which benefit phone with, but that is definitely not. I mean definitely not the people definitely not the people look to the fact that this meeting in Washington, hosted by John Bolton is not as most promising because there's going to be another mayday. We didn't we weren't sure John Bolton visited the region last fall as I recall. And he was in Baku, and then onto Yerevan, however, this meeting in Washington now, we can see his part two, and they'll be a part three and apart for, and what I know about John Bolton is that he likes results he wants. He wants to see us sorry. And, and so once engaged. I think that you are now in the company of someone who will find a solution. I offer that as hope Mr. ambassador Jones from your lips to God's ears, the, you know, you know, the bible says blessed are the peacemakers. If, if indeed those efforts for peace, and you know there's a unique unique catching this, but the situation. Despite a testing this should between the United States Russia. This is one case in which they couldn't cope. The moat, peaceful solution would benefit not only the region, not only I mean, as a veteran, but also they're owned by what initially global seeking to set. A good precedent ovo together full peace. Instead of confrontation, I miss the voters if invested Bolton's commitment to this, this food, you know, God bless him. This is a this is a good thing. And I think.

"John batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. John mcmanus's new book is the dead, and those about to die, which is day, the big red walking I division, landing on the eastern side of Omaha beach. And the battle is for Rochas to understate at this point. It's still very much in the balance. A couple of units incomplete units have gotten off the beach out of the kill zone. Led by Dawson and Spalding working there ways without radios without good communication to the beach forward. The commander of the sixteenth infantry regiment is now about to land with his CPA. He's George Taylor's forty five years old. He's a west pointer, and he's not made general we're given to understand, because he speaks his mind. In fact, when he was presented with a general Clarence hunters plan. He was the one who spoke up and what did he say? John, too damn complicated. Right, right. He was right. Packing. The Higgins boats, and, and dousing their uniforms with Andy chemical weapons, that made them stink and weighing them down with all that equipment so that they couldn't run it was too complicated, depending on all these elements coming ashore, George Taylor hits the beach. He wades a shore, fifty yards through blood and body parts. He looks around him and he starts screaming at everybody to move. Why John George Taylor news much about him Fabius operations as any officer in the US, army to that point in time, he'd been heavily involved in them in the Mediterranean. He understood intuitively, what mattered most was getting off the beach getting off the beach was, basically securing the beach, and so when he comes to shore and, you know, he, he is about eight fifteen and, you know, he finds out quickly that is officer Lieutenant Colonel. John Matthews had been killed some twenty thirty minutes earlier, he appreciated. How bad the situation was like you said, waiting through body parts seeing all those troops huddling along the shingle. And he understood that this was. A situation of great urgency in which people needed to dissembling get off the beach, and this would improve situation. So, so he drives up and down along the shingle Bank, and a great danger to himself, basically saying kinds of people are going to be on the speech. You're going to die now. Get off the beach, and so there's a lot of people who just simply needed to hear something like that, to be given some urgency to be given some direction at that key moment. And so I really think this is this is one of the key moments for the the higher day, June sixth nineteen forty four because what happens is that, you know, the Spalding Dawson's, the Richmond's, all those, those initial groups that have gotten off the beach have done damage and they're dangerous to the Germans. But if they're not reinforced, they're going to be really vulnerable, and so Taylor's actions, reinforce them mightily. And also, of course clears the beach, a lot of lives on the beach because as I put it in the book an American soldier, who's on Omaha beach is a target one who is off the beach and moving inland. Tends to be a hunter and Taylor intuitively understood this. So I think you know, this is one of the things I found out in my research, which I think, was quite interesting. This was not a spontaneous phrase Taylor invented that morning. He had been thinking about it for months. I found it in a memo that he wrote some nine months before d day encapsulated, his thinking about fitness invasion, so in the longest day, the famous movie, unfortunately, they have those words spoken by someone else by Redford mitchum's character in the twenty ninth coach, the assistant division commander of the twenty nine. I hope for posterity sake. We, we all really begin to realize, George Taylor, who said those really rather important words, one other man urging them to get off the beach is the assistant division, commander of the of the big red one Wyman, and you, you present him as a very quiet figure off the battlefield. But that he was very much moving people on another sector to, to follow what Taylor was yelling at another sector Willard, Wyman and George Taylor were very complementary personalities and leadership Taylor with colorful lead from the front fiery wymen was a practitioner technician a it professionals professional courageous very courageous. He'd been in, in the war in Burma in the initial stages of World War, Two he'd seen a lot of combat. He was a great asset to the first division. But he was a little more understated softer-spoken. So he goes up and down the beach to directing. People, but kind of taking care of some of the logistics as well. And he's the one who gets some of the first communication to gentle, Hubner offshore, which prompts him to send in vital reinforcements from the eighteenth. Let widens role is crucial on. Let's mention there's several there, lots of DS's we're talking about. There's a couple of medal of honors one is Pindar tech five star technical sergeant John Joseph Pindar, who's killed in action, but it's his action, his conduct earlier that delivers those radios to Wyman and Taylor. What did he do? Pender was with a guy who was with the headquarters company in the sixteenth, infantry a radio man, and he understood communications are everything to commanders. We understood the priority to try and get that equipment ashore, safely and intact as possibly could. And when his unit comes in along with Lieutenant Colonel Matthews the that part of the group that was just decimated. Hinder goes back into the water time and time again. And that was one of those dangerous places to be at that point on d day morning and drags in radio. And if you can imagine trying to drag in an oversize window air conditioner amid these circumstances trying to get it in and keep it impact and keep it working in this, this salvages enough radio. So that Taylor and some of the other commanders can begin to communicate once they do come ashore, does all this inspite of having really about half his face shot off, and he was badly wounded, so he could just laid down and got treat. Instead, he goes in, and does this again, and again, that's one of the reasons why it gets the medal of honor estimate that he put together enough for three radios where those radio strong enough to communicate to the to Hefner offshore, generally they were not. And that was a real flaw in this whole thing that you were dependent upon Republic Jasko teams. Join us salt signal companies usually to communicate with the ships. I'm not saying that was one hundred percent. Always true. But that was generally the way it worked, and the problem is those Jasko teams are decimated along with everybody else. So this is a real oversight. I think that you don't have better secure ship to shore communication. So it's one of the reasons why Hubner is just in the dark, pacing around like a caged, lion throughout the day. Wanting to go ashore, but convinced by his key aide. Colonel Stanhope, Mason chief-of-staff. You're going to do more harm than good. If you do that. So humor doesn't get ashore until about seven in the evening that night. That's a point you make consistently about commanders making decisions when to stay. Back when to lead from the front, I would say that you got to be lucky. If you're going to be a commander and go front Dawson did if you lose the commander of any unit your, your risking incoherence and Dawson took that risk Taylor's of that risk some then took that risks unnecessarily. And it was not to the it was not show. It was success, so Huebner staying back is the correct decision. I wonder about Taylor risking himself to all that incoming running up and down the beach. He was taking a risk when he did that John. And many of his key officers were not pleased with that his, his battalion or regimental surgeon major pet Mayer take cover you're bringing in all this fire you're gonna get killed. But you're exactly right. That, you know, EROs tend to be lucky. And in this case Taylor was lucky Dawson was lucky. He ends up fighting it out inside the church with a German artillery, observation team face to face, and he certainly could have been killed in that circumstance. Let's go, let's go inland. John and fight it out with Germans who counter attack the dead, and those about to die today. The big red one at Omaha beach done mcmanus's, the author. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John.

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. I welcome Robert Cutler cutting university. Live politics report comment on two large stories turning on the question of can you deal with the Russian super energy opportunities? That is the gas and oil fields of Russia, given Russia's contentious relationship with the European Union and fractious right relationship with the United States of America. These last years, this is the global business report on pipeline politics, brought to you by the Republic of as John from food, to energy to a knowledge, a comic, the Republic of as by John in the Caspian Sea basin is a region. Well worth exploring, Robert, you know, I'm partial to as her by John. I've traveled there twice in three times in these last years, and they have a village angered JAL village, which is the pumping station for oil to Turkey and by ship than to. A Europe of the Mediterranean, bought the presentation now is to complete the southern gas corridor and Sanger child will be the pump station for gas flowing to Europe. Why because that will bypass Russia and also mean that western Europe and eastern Europe or not totally dependent upon Russian guys. So we start with the prospect of not only as a by John gas, but also Turkmenistan gas, and maybe even Kazakhstan gas right now, there is not a trans Caspian pipeline to carry the gas from Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan, right? Across the Caspian Sea. An article most recently points out in the national interest points out to the possibility of building that transcaspian pipeline. But starting with something stepped down from pipeline called an interconnector to connect Turkmenistan field with as Abidjan few what? It is an interconnector is different than a pipeline. Is this politics going slowly as opposed to the big project? Good evening to Robert. Hi. John and connector is what it sounds like it connects two points and the interconnector in question here, you have to remember is that Turkmenistan has offshore platforms and other by John has offshore platforms. And there's been the idea circulating for years, actually that one way to begin to get Turkmen guest to other by John from by John to Europe is to interconnect these platforms along the bed, and this is not a new idea. What is a new is the idea that it could be the beginning of something bigger Turkmenistan could have implemented this and other by John could have implemented this anytime in the past? But took minutes Don is holding out for a big prize. If you do the interconnector, you might get paid or ten maximum billion cubic meters per year. And Turkmenistan as you know, as we've discussed the trans the full-fledged transcaspian pipeline is three times that for thirty thirty two billion cubic meters per year. So Turkmenistan is not going to make take pick small change. They're holding out for the big pot. Russia and Iran following this reporting are reluctant to sign onto a transcaspian pipeline. Is that accurate? And why? It's not really true anymore. John, this is the received wisdom from the last twenty twenty five years up the people who say that Russia's going to block or not going to sign on or in front of transcaspian band, is one question that they don't address because they can't answer it. Which is that for twenty years, Russia's succeeded in blocking the trans Caspian pipeline without the Caspian convention. The league on the legal status of the Caspian Sea. But now there's a Caspian convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea, and it's because Russian diplomacy pushed for it for the last two years. It wouldn't have happened without Russia, getting behind it, and making it so and to do that. They also provided some convincing to Iran with economic aid and so on so and things have changed in the eastern. Caspian OSHA sea coast over the last twenty years, you have China there. There is present now where it wasn't before, and Russia's very concerned to block the Chinese influence. So they would even look favorably on a western energy presence in Turkmenistan. So this is really no longer true that Russia and Iran would block the trans Caspian pipeline because other by John Iran of made some side deals in preparation for the signing last August of the convention, Turkmenistan, Iran and Iran has no way to stop it in. Russia doesn't really want to anymore. We go to Russia, because the ongoing investigation of the contamination of Russian oil sent through the Transneft pipeline to eastern Europe, now brings in a number of states looking to challenge Russia, or get damages from Russia or deal with this contaminated oil, I mentioned bellarusse Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and Ukraine is looking to send the contaminated alter, Hungary, and Slovakia of these. These states are upset because of the original contamination. But the investigation of why the pipeline was contaminated is fascinating. Robert, I learned from an article an investigative piece that has been published recently that a real Russia of the real Russia today that there are private nodes, private knows that are connected to the Transneft pipeline. And the suspect is a private note in the Samara oblast. What do you take from this scale of argument that there are private investors, who have access to state run oil, and there's no quality control that this is the insider game in Russia, gone wrong by pumping oil? That was not filtered correctly. How do you read this? We have a few minutes to, to speculate. Well, all you say to John and there's more besides this story is sort of, like Russian dolls one within the other only, you run packing them in a hall of mirrors there, at least forced possible stories that not limited to Russia and all of them are possible, and they don't exclude one another the story to which you refer about the feft of negligence. They found someone to confess one of the four people who was arrested that you'd mentioned last week. But the problem with this story this part of the story is that you look at the scale of the contamination and it's not reasonable. It was to suppose that it came from only one node over a short period of time. Yes, it came from that one node came from a company that has changed hands three times in the last two years now has a share capital of Andre and fifty dollars. And according to the paper's is owned by veterinarian, please. And it gets even more outlandish. From there. So but, but yes, it's possible. But also there's a possibility inside Russia of a coordinated small oil company sabotage against the regulations imposed from the center, politically, that they don't like, because it makes life more difficult for them. There's that aspect of it too. But on the international angle recall that this first came to light in bellarusse. Well, Abella Reuss and Russia have had more and more difficult relations over the past time. In fact, oddly enough, this contamination was first detected in Belarus, only a number of days after the president of Belarus, Lucas Shanka hinted in public that he would increase the rates that he would charge to Russia, for trans meeting their oil for on westward to Europe. And he said that. That because he was annoyed that the Russians had increased the tariffs on bellarusse food imports to Russia, and Russia food exports to Belarus. And so there's this tit for tat going on between them then you have the election of Alinsky as the president of Ukraine, we have a minute. Robert, go ahead. Go ahead. Please. And what does also does is, it's retina fuel crisis in Ukraine. At least on the short term to have these four different stories that don't exclude one another that just get more and more complex and the come the countries that are involved. They could say, we don't want you oil, we're not gonna pay for it, but they don't have any alternative suppliers, lined up yet. So they're trying to settle for who knows twenty five cents on the dollar who knows. It's two point eight billion dollars worth of oil. So Russia wants its money, no matter that that was contaminated. Is that correct? That's correct. And Transneft is legally responsible, and it's rather surprising that there appears to be no insurance arrangement to take care of any of these losses.

"This is the John Batchelor show out of poem people does in beside the supreme court American jenex sterilization of Carrie, we're going to get all of the ones typically as possible that we need men in Lawson comes from island. He has the missionary about him. And by the time carry comes across. He comes across carry. He is deputy director of the genetics record office in cold spring harbor New York, I'm not making this up. I'm flabbergasted to learn these things it's supported by Carnegie money. It's supported by Rockefeller money. It's it's led by a at some point some version of it is led by Alexander Graham, Bell these men who participated in this. They're participating in something where the science is off kilter at best today. They explore or was this. Is seen as a public public of civic duty sort of like being on a board of governors of of your college. The believe they were doing something very important for the country. So yes, they they were actually doing research into eugenics and doing fieldwork and training people do field work. They were also advocating for eugenic laws, and they would bring people in and train them and things like how to measure the size of the cranial category cavity to determine the size of the brain, which they thought was somehow genetic and eugenic. So they believe that this was science that was helpful to the country. They were ideal lists in a way, I have a quote from nineteen oh four this is when Laughlin was in Kirk Phil not yet in cold spring harbor. I'm going to read the quote and ask you all to decide. Are we talking about science or something else? Laughlin rights. Eventually the world will be inhabited by an enlightened race, Caucasian and blood Christian religion free in government. I rest my case Adam this is not about science. Yes. He was he was a bigot. And you really called it to light there with that quote. Yes. Laughlin, however, pursues this with the deal of money and fellowships there they're fanning out, and they're investigating hires in a great number women, and they fan out to find what they're investigating courts, they go to Chicago. They go to San Francisco. What are they looking for? Well, a lot of times they're going into these communities of poor benighted as they saw it rural people and they're looking to see what's wrong with them. So they're they're sometimes they're asking the neighbors. They're saying, you know, do, you know, this man's father? Was he feeble minded, so they're doing what they see as important anthropological research on that people who have bad traits, but it was all craziness really Lawson publishes. Well. Chicago publishes for Laughlin a lengthy tract. And here's how it intersects with carry box live in Virginia pretty and his colleagues DR net Davenport, they're looking for a way to sterilize carry on. They're aware of the fact that many sterilization laws and other states have been swept aside because it's outrageous. However, they're looking for a test case. And so they want some support some scientific support Laughlin becomes their guide. Is that how it happens? Yeah. You know, in some states, there were a lot of states actually, passing eugenic sterilization laws at the time in a lot of them. They just began sterilizing people as you say in Virginia, they didn't want to just start sterilising. They wanted to see if they're law would be legally upheld to make sure that they were on solid legal grounds. They do create this test case, and they need someone to put in the middle of it. Someone to be the plaintiff formerly challenging the law. And as you say, it was the colony and just those people the Virginia Genesis who chose Carrie buck. To be the first person in Virginia sterilized and to make a really the plaintiff in this case. And they write Laughlin for what he sends esta Brooke one of his colleagues, what do they want from love the want to support their decision to sterilize Carrie buck, and they want to support their law to show that it's necessarily the genyk sterilization law. So they want science behind it. And at this point Laughlin was the head, you know, co-head or deputy head of the genetics record office. He had a PHD from Princeton. He'd been an agriculture professor. He'd all of the intellectual trappings that they thought would impress a court that this was the right decision. I detail here. There is a parallel course, that's being followed in America. At the time. This is between nineteen ten and nineteen twenty seven, and it's the shutting down of the statue of liberty. That's what's going on there the immigrants and the question before congress and a man by the name of Albert Johnson becomes the chair of the house immigration and naturalization committee. How does? He use Lawson. Yes. So they want to you know, at that time. It was not that hard to get into the United States, you pretty much just showed up at Ellis Island. And if you didn't have some horrible disease, they let you in. They wanted to start as you say shutting down the you've liberty putting up a barriers to entry. So Johnson was the chair of the house in relation committee. He was a leader in this movement and the decided that they wanted science tobacco. This idea of shutting down immigration, and they actually appointed Laughlin expert eugenics agent to congress letter. He tours Europe. It's a stunt the menace of modern immigration, another one of those bestsellers at the time. It is chilling connection to twenty-first-century. We don't have time for that. So we're going to stay with Carrie buck. She is to be a test case for Jinyan knows it Laughlin knows it. And at this point there were ranging the case so that they can have a hearing. Now, they want to hearing. For Carrie buck to be declared. What what is there intention well under the Virginia state state sterilization law? You have to have a hearing to actually show that someone should be sterilized. So they have that hearing at the colony for epilepsy. And feeble minded, the colony rules that she is a suitable person to be sterilized. And once there's that order that she can be sterilized. Then also under the Virginia statute, there's a goes into the state courts as Kerry present during this hearing, she is present. And she has a guardian appointed on her behalf as well. But it's not really a hearing. She does not have an opportunity to put on her own evidence to defend her shoe finish the fifth grade. Right. And she has no lawyer. We does not look like she can read and write write a man by the name of strode a mysterious figure. He's an esteemed lawyer in Virginia. The colony hires him to represent them. What do they want from strode? What does he do for them? So he's their lawyer really on routine matters as well. But he's their lawyer in this case, and he's actually the one who puts on the brakes a little bit and says. To them that he doesn't think that they should sterilize people until the laws been tested. So they hire him to actually test the law. So he becomes really the prosecutor if you will in the case he's driving for that. I hear east driving. He's he's the one saying she should be sterilized and making the factual and legal arguments Whitehead the representing carry. However, you're very analytical about how he presents the case, it's exhausting. What he doesn't try to do for example? He doesn't challenge this version that she's epilepsy. He doesn't challenge the her intelligence test whatsoever. They don't they don't have a conversation. Now, that's important. You've been to law school, I haven't. But I know this that case if it's to go all the way up the courts and strode expects it to they can't change the facts once it gets to the court, right? The facts are affixed in this hearing. Yeah. They're actually fixed rate in the first trial is in in Virginia in the in the county court that that's the place where yes, you put on all the facts. All the evidence. And that's what's going to be the record on appeal. So that's right. The fact that Irving Whitehead did not put on you know, factual case and do not present, you know, experts never have under have that made it really very hard for to win in the higher courts. At this point pretty steps aside. He's ill a man by them. John Bell becomes the superintendent of the colonies. So that's why in the supreme court case which everybody in law school knows this case very well. I'm learning from Adam buck the bell. That's where bell comes bells important, also because eventually he will do the sterilization, but we have to go the route of the supreme court did pretty no it was going to go to the core. He expected might he hoped it would they really wanted a very strong ruling. So he was glad you can never tell what cases the court will take. But he was pleased that it was taken their Adam Cohen imbeciles when we come back. Oliver Wendell Holmes. I'm John Batchelor..
