"Is this reputable source. I mean it's it's a lot it's not. it's not easy. No one said it was easy but The old saying is freedom isn't free nor is it easy so I think the challenge for all of us is to again investigate. You know as many perspectives as you possibly can. and some of them may even challenge your own operating assumptions. And that's the point That's what we all want. We all want to be informed of on a diverse group of and so the judge is here folks The name of the book is prior restraint. And you can get it at amazon. I downloaded it. I think it was wednesday or thursday and is from local. If you wanna get hardcover it's everywhere and it's a great book. I loved it and you know. Obviously i love those books. I read james patterson. And and vince flynn and Authors authors like that and it's based out of washington and it's based around Let me just set. Let him lane. That'll bicy- question. And then i'm trying to do this. Like they do on a professional show. Nearest you know you set up this offer on one side and it has to do with the media and the government and corruption yes basically this The theme of this book is a new terrorism in the media and the books starts off early with the nation's number one tv evening news broadcaster brutally murdered on pennsylvania avenue in the streets of washington. And it's just such a shock to the media establishment and the public at large but before that wears off within days the nation's leading newspaper. Column this in manhattan is also brutally murdered seemingly than fundamentalists so now the media's in absolute hysteria and they're scared to death to put anything on the air or or publish anything for fear it will make them a target and before we go further. Let me just give a quick definition for your audience of the term prior restrain. It's a legal term that refers to any attempt to you know censor or prevent publication or broadcast of any questionable material. It's also any action which creates a chilling effect on conduct or speech where such is suppressed by the fear of being penalized an individual or a group and finally it's the self censorship that's imposed by such fear so when we talk about a prior restraint where information is suppressed. Fear is oftentimes a major component to making that happen so back to the story line after these two very prominent public media individuals are brutally murdered..

"That's why it was developed this way. That's exactly right. And we've had instances throughout our our history where the court has been one-sided either way but we still managed to function once the court system in this country becomes then politicize. We've lost a great deal of our freedoms so the supreme court still is the last bastion of freedom in this country. And so i think it's important that regardless of who might be on the court any given time that we support again. The founding fathers vision of how this country should be operating and that is on the basis that we want to be a country where the individual is acknowledged. And not the government. Where does your personal opinion on the media well I don't know if it's my personal opinion. As much as it is just an observation. I think most of us realize and irrespective of one's Political bent I think the made. It tends to be very one-sided not always but oftentimes and i think it's incumbent upon the citizenry to stay informed. And i don't mean just by watching your favorite new show at night the internet's a great thing. There's a lot of access to alternative ways to acquire information and the best way to preserve. Freedom is to stay informed. And then stand up or what you believe. And i think part of the problem that we're facing is that people aren't making decisions for themselves anymore. They're just echoing may be what they hear on. Tv and radio so I think Again we're going back to these freedoms freedom of speech is obviously a very important thing and it's being impinged upon agree and i think We need to stand up. I mean everybody not. It doesn't matter what your political perspective is. But in order to have a free society we need to be able to have access to all points of view. Your honor in your opinion. Do you think that it was wise. For alex jones to be cancelled and for donald trump to be cancelled and or For whatever reasons politics aside you know the social media groups got to pick a trump because he his term was retiring and they were. They were all done with them again. That's just my opinion. And then alex jones certainly crazy kook but I think that was the right thing for those folks to do well. Of course not anytime you supress thought regardless of whether it's popular or it's in the Minority you've harmed everyone. I mean you know. People need to be exposed to a universe of thought and be free to decide for themselves what they believe to be true and so any time someone is banned doesn't matter where it's trump or anyone on near social media..

"To northern ireland now where violent protests have grit the region for almost two weeks. That's the sound of rioting which has involved children as young as twelve throwing bricks fireworks and petrol bombs at lines of police officers and vehicles in the last week. Ninety officers have been injured. This unrest relates back to brexit and today a court in belfast will decide whether to hear a legal challenge to the northern ireland protocol. That was part of the. Uk's brexit deal that imposed trade barriers between the region and the rest of britain to allow trade to continue seamlessly on the island of ireland. The bbc's john campbell has more on that story from belfast. Basically you have unionists. One of the men political groupings in northern ireland at the core of their politics is the desire to remain part of the united kingdom and to resist any attempt to reunite with the other part of ireland the republic of ireland. They want a judge to rule. Brexit deal for northern ireland would be unconstitutional. And they hope that would force the uk government to go and renegotiated. And what they are. Trying to argue is that the brexit dale breaches the good friday agreement. Peace accord because it changes northern ireland's constitutional position without the consent of a vote on the also says it breaches a much older law known as the act of union which says there shouldn't be any customs borders within the uk

So i don't know but other than that thank you. Now here's the thing no that'll before we go any further. Tim i want you to try them in on this. I just looked this up. Well well john's giving his answer. I was surprised number one that you kobe. Myers is the twenty first round draft. pick Right now in epa pc basketball Then i was even more surprised. See julian edelman is twenty third round draft pick. I don't think julian edelman twenty third round. Pick since his rookie year in best ball drive right now. So your thoughts on on the state of the patriots. As far as fantasy football value goes crazy value. That's all. I'm gonna say i mean come on again. I mean no one's going. You know what i mean. There's there's you know that's one thing you know in years and years of doing this fantasy football you know I think people tend to stay away from you. Know teams that are bad shape or know bad teams They're not. But i mean there's always production you know there. There's always production against someone always catches the ball. Someone runs the ball. So if you can get those few guys that do it late in around fantastic. You know i mean why not it is. You're exactly right guys. It is nonsensical elman's going. And i've i've drafted in four best balls now. There's some guys addressed in many many more but it w- it remains nonsensical. But i haven't taken that. That's why i i've contributed to someone being in the twenty plus rounds. But you know. The thing about myers that that concerns me. And they're concerned about the patriots in the red zone. Play last year reminders. one touchdown and He's he seems to me to be a great player between the twenties. But i don't seem getting open when we go red zone. So that's just my. Why should my one thing about meyers. My one caveat about meyers. But you know what guys. I think we all return to las vegas in play. There's there's gonna be some patriots moving.

"He looks scared. You looked like he had a lot of pressure on him you know. He lost his confidence. So i mean indianapolis can rehabilitate them. Get confident and what he can do. Make aggressive again. God then pittman has a chance. Yes god i'm buying into that. I think one season of carson wentz With that group in philadelphia last year a lot of quarterbacks would would have had a bad year at. He's some problems. I i agree with you there. And i will say that you're very very well connected and making good decisions when you link skills to the quarterback and it's gotta be a good match. I think wince even if he does not improve like we expect him to. I think wentz. I think pittman will improve just because of the different way. The quarterback distributes the ball. But i like your idea. And maybe you'll pull me down to earth but will you agree that in the tenth round just like your Landry that pittman is bargain. Absolutely i think you know if everything works out the way it should. And the way the coaches want it to work you know pittman has a chance to actually be up there in the at least top fifteen pittman actually For for what. It's worth enough. That pc drafts right now. Wide receiver forty five eleven to going into in the eleventh row. Now he's going in the tenth round right now so an insane value. He's going right after.

David twenty thousand dollar football guys playoff challenge number two winners of this past season tim. Let's throw it back to you and talk a little. Jk dobbins air guy that i think a lotta people expected at some point to take over the ravens backfield and twenty twenty and it probably happened a little bit later than i think a lot of high stakes players thought it would happen but mark ingram is no longer in baltimore. Talk about an extension with gus edwards to me that suggests they're probably not looking at adding anybody big in that baltimore backfield f. fcc players obviously of the same opinion on this one. Jk dobbins going at the to eleven right now is running back that spot that you and john would look at targeting him this year. You know what i like. Dobbins around that area You either enter the second again third. I've kinda see him go in that range like just looking at draft boards over the last couple of weeks. I mean yeah. He kinda showed up late to the party last year. But you know. I think it was week twelve or thirteen i mean. He took over the reins. He was scoring touchdowns.

"Football in high school got him they had more than once and that's when I found John Campbell and Johnson grew up in a working class neighborhood called park gross it's on the outer edges Portland near the airport not a part of town the tour spent a lot of time in there's a little more poverty here than the rest the county and a lot more diversity most kids at Johns high school or students of color Jonathan's family home is a small square nineteen fifties house with a tall evergreen tree out front and a big backyard I'm in the living room looking at family photos with his parents Jimmy is our oldest Jeremiah Jonathan in July that's Johnson's father Jim Bohlen he likes to joke around yeah I wanna hear something soon Jimmy was born in July your mind was born in June and Jonathan was born in January girl comes along messes it all up March yeah it is I put it that way Renee Jonathan's mother thanks Jim jokes around too much they're different in other ways too Jim is tall and white Renee shorten African American he drives trucks for a living she's an educational system in fifth grade Jonathan turns to his mother when he wants to do something that won't allow I found the team and took him there it was erecting flag football he practice with them that evening and weekend a carnal way home and I said you like he goes yeah I do but that's fine let me play I go well I'll just take you without that no one Jim didn't want his kids getting hurt playing football so Jonathan and his mother kept did their little secret and tell family had a game and I encourage dad to come watch him and when he came out to watch him he saw how good he was Jonathan was good at football from an early age but his neighborhood high school park rose was not very good in Johnson's lifetime they made the playoffs once the year before I started high school so they were on the rise and don't think came along at just the right time June thing more medium Jersey and a thin mustache he was sore for football you still growing but he was towns enough to play varsity is freshman year the next year he took over as quarterback so there was when I started to take playing quarterback seriously the say that going to camps in my own personal quarterback coach hidden waste heavy in court about rose everyday when Johnson was in games as quarterback sophomore year Parker's is average score per game doubled compared to the games he had to sit out and the team kept getting better all it has led the resurgence of the Bronco football team and it's again Kristofferson reports he doesn't want to stop until they reach the playoffs the wait Renee remembers one amazing play Jonathan pulled off the first play they hiked the ball to John he went straight down the middle and scored a touchdown didn't even look at anybody he just got the ball into five right ninety seven yard pass but he can't do it he did Missy that running the ball as quarterback did you get a lot everybody every single time I bought my scoring or phone are running out of bounds yeah I was in it you ever the first concussion is is back sophomore year yes concussion number one Johnson's tech will be the sideline to him concussions feel like this just the slowness the fog he was a sea star line C. stores but I'm not a stomach ache usually throw up after cursing stomach her the centers for disease control and prevention list those as classic concussion symptoms so what exactly happens to the brain here's how CDC expert explains it for parents and players on their website a concussion is a change in how the brain functions so it's not a structural injury it's a functional injury when the body or the head is struck the brain old slosh around inside the head and it changes how the brain works concussions can affect people's memory and make it hard to think clearly the CDC says they can trigger mood behaviour or personality changes concussions in youth sports is important because you're talking about a potential threat to the development of that youngster's brain when John think its its first concussion sophomore year it's three years into Max's law he was pulled out of the game as the law requires he went to a county medical clinic at Parker's high school ten days after getting hit note show he was given a cognitive test any had symptoms of a concussion but the test itself is not in the files and there's no record of a follow up tests three and a half weeks later Jonathan turns in a doctor's note clearing him to play it looks like the law was generally followed here but the paper trail is incomplete and in our review across the state my colleague Lee found that a lot of schools keep sloppy records when we got a hold of the request the condition of the records was in some cases just really rough like hand written notes and really inconsistent record keeping and of course good records it's not required but it certainly best practice and at the end it was really hard to be confident and how well the laws were being followed honestly that's just sort of a shame I mean who we have this potentially great opportunity to learn more about concussions and student athletes in our state and we're not really learning anything from it and we looked at Jonathan school Parker specifically these days park rose is among the best organized we found but that's under a new principal from Jonathan Stein the school says it's simply has no records other than what was at that county clinic they don't know what happened in the school's athletic department records on concussions for all the years Jonathan was there so after that first concussion Johnson's mom Renee started to see changes in her son he had trouble focusing on his homework at school he would go to the nurse's office when he needed a break he was allowed to lay down the grass as much as you need to because of the concussion that was an informal arrangement unlike some states organ doesn't require schools to have an academic plan to help athletes who had a concussion return to class gradually it's junior year and Jonathan is back on the field this team is a realistic shot at making the state playoffs it's Friday night in late October the plays a quarterback draw Jonathan runs up the middle two linebackers make the tackle on him and come down on his head Rene's in the stands and season go down he didn't get up when I got there is Hellman was our feeds is kind of land there the any the paramedics were talking to a me try to open up his eyes and he couldn't he said the light was too much and in all the the last thing he have sand was Iran coach mall you told me to run I ran you know he was apologizing now that he's injured he's apologizing concussion number two this time Jonathan went straight to the hospital he stayed overnight Johnson watches TV from the sideline the rest of his junior year hospital records show a doctor when when play or even work out for four months when that time was up Johnson went straight back into the gym training with the former Parker's assisting coach TV brown would become a mentor and friend coach brown says that it was slow going I mean with the headaches you really can't do too much hello the running the pounding on source you run a little bit and you walk in my left a little bit and then we're doing mobility work so wasn't as rigorous as soon all of us are normal trade regimen was Jonathan pushed through headaches to rebuild the strength he wanted to be a hundred percent for senior year and not just for the sake of playing football he wanted to be the first Kim this family to graduate from college any help the football who pays way for Jonathan that men doing anything to get a scholarship including downplaying skin questions because I know as a college because being around them they don't want to actually they have a lot of injuries you expressly concussions causing know how many you can get into you retire when Jonathan returned as quarterback senior year The Oregonian the local newspaper call them as good as new Parker's coach Maurice France noticed coach mo told the paper Johnson was back to his old self Jonathan's mom saw something else going on John was taking four to five I will profane or Advil before every game when I found that out then I was tellin because small about it I go I don't think that's healthy I don't think you should be doing that he has well over taker big would paint in and make some play better yeah but four to five I will prevent that's not good coach mo told us he thinks he would have send Jonathan to the school athletic trainer if Renee raise that concern he doesn't remember the specific conversation it's halfway through the season John takes another hit zones knocked off he sets out a bit with any returns to the field number more sun was this a gift by your trip in in your you yeah yeah his best about his friend marshon talks to the coach and John think it's pulled out of the game mark rose's athletic trainer goes up into the stands and tells Jonathan's father Jim that his son may have a concussion concussion number three things fall apart from there Jim forgets to tell Renee and Jonathan doesn't tell anybody in fact Johnson tells the school trainer he went to the doctor and was okay the school double checks with Renee she's gone to meeting and that's when she realizes Jonathan has been line she's furious I go there's only one thing to do you're not playing in the playoffs you're done right when I said that the athletic director and the nurse who works in the health

The History of Women in Science Fiction
"Science fiction has often been represented as a boys club but you have in particular studied and written extensively about history of women running science fiction if women have always been present in his own room why do people don't know about this why do we just think about the men who have written science fiction right i mean i think we we do think about women in the shocker but only like at certain periods of time right like everyone willing to admit that mary shelley is is one of the founders of the genre certainly one of the i think the first authored a write a commercially successful science fiction story and then you know you get fast forward to the nineteen seventies add a the revival of feminism an all of a sudden you at authors like her glennon joanna raw in margaret atwood and then people are like oh wow women right science fiction fiction and of course just this past year n k jemison right became the first author of of any gender race to win three she goes in award so now we see women in the john ross but there's a huge gap between like eighteen eighteen as they nineteen seventy they add i don't really understand where all the women were so i started looking around at turns out sure enough there they were there we've always had women in the sean raw on from the very beginning women constituted about fifteen percent of all science fiction producer third an we know that by the time they started doing reader's poll in the nineteen forties and fifties that women counted for at least forty percent of the readership as well an today i'm not sure where we are in readership but i know that the numbers of women science fiction have doubled so worried about thirty thirty five percent now but i think the reason that we forget that there were so many women in between shelly an a the revival of feminism in that the the growth of science fiction is because women were sometimes writing we were looking at the kinds of fiction they were writing and then we also can't find it because it didn't always get anthology eyes right it's it's really hard the early science fiction community were all magazine science fiction and add those magazines often got thrown away or they didn't laugh they weren't preserved so if you don't have access to a university with a huge science fiction collection like i do it's really hard to find these women and then you know it's exacerbated by the fact that even even if you have anthologies a lot of early anthologies were written by people who didn't necessarily include women in those anthologies for one reason or another yeah i mean it's it's interesting because obviously you have the the men who were writing in this pulp magazines same guy that didn't disappear people still about that and it's like it's just frustrating but then i mean i don't know if there's anything in it but things like james chip tree you know perhaps people don't necessarily know that that this is a pseudonym right right i i think james kept tree right that was probably a pretty well now one interesting thing i've found is that most women did not you nailed it and then most women went by willie decidedly feminine name an and usually their own name although sometimes they would also take other names like willis lorraine which is a lovely name she was born mary mod done you could see why she switched her name but really what i found is most women did not match courageous men an austin women pictures were printed printed in the magazine in the very early magazines author had catches of themselves with their draw with their with their stories so an even if somehow you missed that'd be editor were quick to correct a reader who missed took female writers from el writer but what did happen and that one very early in the shot like in the twenties and thirties right so white after universal suffrage and the first wave of feminism and i think a lot of people were really sort of on board with thinking about how the future my female as well is mel an but then in the late thirties and forties you the backlash against feminism in that time when the first science fiction anthologies are being put together and those were put together by a younger group of men who really did you find participated in that that minutes backlash rhetoric right john campbell who wore that no woman could write science fiction even though he'd been publishing in magazines women did you know he had it that's how to the male got her start in her career he told her no woman could write a story and she said yeah i bet i can write a story you'll like it so much you'll you'll back me from warren and that's exactly what happened actually but as anthology forgetting put together women we know they're anecdote on an app that that women have told that they were cut out of the magazine so luckily i've known her with one of the pioneering science fiction authors she gold lingers back and a was really popular with people's you're looking big creating space opera often she had been invited to be to include a story in one of the first big client fiction anthologies andover supposed to be a party for everyone who's gonna be on thala g and she was sick and she couldn't go so she sent her husband an editor said oh you must be likely stone he said no no that's my white i'm just here for her as a place called her and they're like oh that's very interesting and then within two weeks you had a letter saying yeah we decided to drop their story from anthology i'd really hard not to put to ensure together on that

"Are you optimistic about Nigeria's future? Particularly given the high growth rate Afaq may become the. The third or fourth most populous country in the world over the next several decades if you're being objective and detached the population is growing exponentially. So too is urban is Asian about half the population now lives in in town ships round cities, you mentioned Legos has population with two million and zoom. It doesn't. It doesn't. Look, let's say like Shanghai with lots of high rises and fisticuffs infrastructure. There's a cluster of high rises in the center of the city, and they're also open sewers in the center of the city. But we haven't talked about climate change and nine the the effects of climate change are obvious in Nigeria more so perhaps than most parts of the world. The Sahara is creeping south that displaces herdsmen herdsmen move south where they collide with farmers herdsmen. Our Muslim farmers are Christian quarrels over land use. But are they really quarrels with land use or they quarrels over ethnishity or religion oral three c levels in the Gulf of Guinea rise. Legos is on the Gulf of Guinea, it's more or less at sea level. You put all this together. And it becomes almost impossible to be optimistic. If you're being rigidly objective. But the funny thing about Nigeria is that they are extraordinarily flexible. They have an ability to adapt to pull a rabbit out of the hat, which means a purely objective. Look is in a sense misleading. Look at the success of the Nigerian expatriate community in the United States in many respects. The most successful immigrant group typically are virtually all first generation, right? Look at the sun is of the Nigerian expatriate community in China, and they're relational as was the large guts, huge again tied up with textile trade you had the sort of entrepreneurial spirit is moving in completely different unexpected directions. That makes makes me Optimus. Stay. I just don't know quite how we're going to get from point a to point big fair point on that optimistic note, we're going to close the president's inbox for this week. Again.

"That is poor and getting poor feels marginalized feels that it is has been ignored by the Nigerian establishment, either Muslim or Christian. This message has some resonance. There's a topping into both grievances. But also religious symbolism and try that's right. Also, the thing about terrorism, let's say the northern Nigerian population is some eighty million. Nobody really knows their estimates. That support for Boko haram or acquiescence to it is probably a little bit less than ten percent of the population that still between seven and eight million people that's a lot. So what is the current state of the efforts by the central? Government to Kurt tail or put Boko haram on the run. It's all a hammer. And that's the problem if you've you Boca haram, solely as a security issue that can be addressed militarily, Boko haram. Go on for very long time clearly to really counter, Boko haram is going to is going to require significant reforms in terms of governance in terms of economic development, and even the most enlightening than advance strategy and the current one is neither of those two things. It's going to take a long time as you look at this as you book from is it solely Nigerian issue is Boko haram crossing borders into neighboring countries across borders into neighboring countries for that doesn't mean very much because the boundaries on being very much. The boundaries were basically written by the French British. And then the Germans since it was before one, and they're just simply lawns on a map where where Boko haram is active is predominantly canary and the canary population is found all over the. The Lake Chad basin. So you said that went Mr. Bahari ran for the presence of the first time he had two planks Woolmer's and take on Boko haram to radically eight it second plank was to battle corruption and earlier in our conversation. You said that corruption is structural structural. Yes. That's right. So maybe because her tell me, what do you mean by structural, and in be has Mr. Bahari even made an attempt to or he's gonna tent alright, and there have been certain certain very high profile prosecutions Nigerians perceive Bahari himself as as being free of Krupp Shen boy has no interest in money himself. The perception is also widespread that he is surrounded by people who are corrupt. Let's explain that paradox. Okay. If you're telling me as an individual he's not corrupt. He's not taking money. He's concerned about corruption. Why would you surround yourself with people who violate his principles and his policy? Maybe I could give you an example of what I mean by the corruption being structural, and that means that. May shed some light on what we're talking about. Let's take corruption at the very lowest level Nigeria. This roads have police checkpoints almost everywhere to get through a checkpoint. A soldier comes up to a car or to a cart and says what do you have for me today? In other words, he's asking for a bribe to let you through the checkpoint. Okay. He more or less has to do that. Because police wages are so low you couldn't keep body and soul together further. Police wages are very often in arrears for months. Okay. So they're not getting paid. I owe us essentially, essentially, that's right that and even if they were being paid, it's it's too low to keep body and soul together project that through the entire economy. Another example when I was in Basseterre, my bodyguards came from the Nigerian police the embassy paid a supplement to their police salaries. They didn't get keep. That supplement at least not all of it. What they had to do was they had to pass it up their own chain of command. So that everybody got a nibble. Everybody can nibble of it. Everybody got a piece of it. You see again project this through the entire society. You see it's in parent on how you do business. But more to the point how you get from today to tomorrow against a background of a very poor country in which a large number of people are getting poor. Let me sort of try to give you my sense of what I'm hearing from you. You have a very large very diverse country, which has lots of potential issues that could be exploited that could render it apart in gimmick. Corruption sort of built in or baked into the system it's a country, which heavily depends upon oil. And right now oil prices are on the low under the factor rather than the high end of the spectrum is a very young population..

"The results are very interesting. It was expected that the election would be extremely close. It was not president Buhari won some fifteen million votes. Tcwu Boubacar one about eleven million votes. However, the turnout was extremely low. There were eighty million registered voters seventy two million picked up their voter registration cards, which you must have to actually cast a ballot. But in fact, only about twenty six million went to the polls voted extremely low. Typically, what kind of turn it would you get any Nigeria presidential election, some some somewhat below fifty. Okay. So this is higher. Okay. But let before we sort of plunge into the nitty gritty of Nigerian politics in what the various candidates were. Offering on the ballot. Can you help people understand a little bit more about Nigeria Nigeria's the largest economy in Africa? It is the most populous countries, but two hundred and five million people hundred and five million people, but it's a very young population. I was just checking the numbers on the median age is around eighteen years old just put that in comparison. The median age in the United States of America is thirty eight years old the country has his twice the size of California has five hundred indigenous languages, so conservative. Help us understand how Nigeria works. I point to make is that the populations increasing very rapidly U N S two mates that by twenty fifty. It will be some four hundred and fifty million people, and in fact will displace United States as the third largest country in the world by population more or less evenly divided between Islam and Christianity oil is by far the government's largest source. Of of revenue poverty, appears to be increasing the numbers living in absolute poverty now are larger than the absolute numbers living in poverty in India. Even though India's four five times, it's lar that was a significant development that was reported earlier last year when Nigeria had overtaken India. Yeah. Yeah. In the wrong way, as it were the Nigerians particularly say that it is the largest economy in Africa. It's really an oil economy. It's the largest economy in Africa. When oil prices are up when oil prices are down South Africa's largest Nigerian no imports food didn't used to it used to be major food exporter. Infrastructure has deteriorated remarkably the country in many respects is still recovering from a generation of military rule, which led to things like running down of the civil service the educational system and so forth. Indie miserable. Harry was one of those dictators. Wasn't. He wasn't in another very long for less. Than about two years. And at the time he was very much known for being a disciplinarian, which is one reason why there was a coup against him both as military chief state and now as civilian chief of state, he's put considerable emphasis on fighting corruption corruptions ubiquitous in Nigeria structural it's held the society operates you mentioned that the country is more or less evenly split between Muslim Christian. Can you? Give us a sense of how that's distributed across the country. My senses Muslims tend to predominate in the north of the country Christians in the southern part of customer. That's right. That's right with the western part of the country that is to say Legos, which now has twenty two point five million people. It's one of the largest cities in the world. The West End Legos are about evenly divided between the two now offering people talking about Nigeria about having a middle belt. It does that's where Christianity and Islam meat, and it goes right across the country, and in terms of the the ethnic makeup of Nigeria a large number of different ethnic groups. None has more than about. Twenty eight twenty nine percent of the popular. That's right. But three of them together are some seventy percent of the population that they are the abode the Uraba and the and the Fulani and those three ethnic groups tend to dominate the country. So how how does that all feed into this election that we just had do we have regional candidates squaring off against one?.

"The national Churchill librarian center is the result of a partnership between the university and the society and over the last two years. We welcome many students in visitors and shared with them access to primary documents books and exhibits about Winston Churchill clothing painting by Churchill, which you can see over there. For our Churchill conversations series. We've welcome to the library leaders, which is in Basseterre, Ron Dermer, David Rubenstein general David trans former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf actor Gary Oldman, distinguished historians, including Neil, Ferguson and many more to discuss not only the particulars of Churchill's life and career their application to our present day challenges for as Churchill himself observed the longer you can look back the farther you can look forward. But now let us turn to the main event tonight. We will learn about a figure utterly devoted to history who in his thirties wrote an admiring biography of conservative Victorian statesman, and he was chronicled the history of wars around the world amid a colossal output of non-fiction in his youth. He wrote a single novel featuring protagonist model rather closely after himself and engaged in a struggle against tyranny. Passionate polemicist his articles on a host of political and historical subjects appeared in newspapers and magazines in Britain and around the world, a fervent admire Napoleon devout drinker, polarization pain, a confidant of prime ministers in habitue of ten Downing Street and an honored guest at the White House. He is truly made his Mark on history. One of the reasons for many reasons, but Andrew Roberts. Maybe the perfect biographer of Winston Churchill the above description applies equally to them both. In his supposed to that. Coming up. His. You should read the novel in his please. That's what Churchill said about his in his memoirs of the second World War Churchill reflected on the moment when ultimate power came to him in may nineteen forty. I was conscious of a profound sense of relief at last I had the authority to give directions over the whole scene. I felt as if I were walking with destiny and that all my past life had been but a preparation for this hour and for this trial after decades of research ceaseless travel in the great man's footsteps and the use of new sources, Andrew Roberts is crafted brilliant exploration of Churchill's walk with destiny, but it's not the new sources that most distinguished is half. Breaking work rather? It is the calm and reason judgment than Andrew applies to the countless dramas triumphs failures and controversies that marked Churchill's nine decade life and six decade parliamentary career since its publication last month in Britain. Churchill walking with destiny has been declared the best single volume life of Churchill ever written by both the Sunday Times in the Sunday. Telegraph and in the new issue of finest hour, the international Churchill's society's publication review John Campbell, hailed it. As a heroic biography Andy Roberts is a PHD from Cambridge University is a visiting professor at the war.
