Belarus' Post-Election Crackdown

"Nearly 7000 people have been detained in Belarus after protests erupted on Wednesday. This follows the presidential election results that came over the weekend. Several demonstrators who were arrested have sense accused the government of torture. Jen, What's going on? Why are people upset? Well, so this basically kind of started going back a little bit before this election, so they had an election on Sunday. But a little bit. Before that there were some protests going on and Is a lot of had to do with Alexander Lukashenko and his he's the president and his kind of failure more long term in terms of the economy in terms of managing the Corona virus. But then there was this election coming up. And because Lukashenko he's been in power for 26 years now. He was basically elected in the first, you know, nationwide Democratic elections in the country. After you know, they declared independence from the Soviet Union. It was the first nationwide really free and fair election. It was also the last nationwide free and fair election. Hey, has since then consistently crackdown on all forms of opposition. He's rigged all the elections to make sure he stays in power. And this coming up election that was coming up this past Sunday. He was planning to do the same thing. He detained the opposition. You know, the key opposition leaders. But he didn't factor in that there was basically a homemaker, a woman named Svetlana ticking off scale. She's a 37 year old former English translators stay at home Mom. She's also the wife of one of the lead opposition figures who was detained and she said, Okay, fine. You want to arrest my husband? Then I'll run for president in his stead. And she took to the streets and basically said, You know, I'm not gonna let this happen. She basically helped unite the opposition and thousands and thousands and thousands of people came out to the streets in support of her. In a way that had not been seen basically in its entire post Soviet history on DH. Then, of course, the election was rigged. As expected, she, you know, contested the results. She ended up having to fleet of Lithuania she was feared for her Children's lives. But people are angry and they're back in the streets in the thousands and tens of thousands and true to form, Lukashenko's government is again cracking down brutally and trying to repress it. Well, Courtney, we got this message from Dave, who says the situation is so fluid. How will the US respond to Lukashenko's efforts to be seen to be looking for a political solution where he still stays in power? Well, General. I mean, the U. S. Has already said that they don't believe these were free elections. We heard that from Mike Pompeo just this week, and the EU has said that I mean, pretty much the entire international community has condemned these elections. It's interesting because this comes at a time when you there have been terrible relations between the US and Minsk for years. In fact, In. Lukashenko has been under sanctions by the U. S. Since 2006 after another round of election irregularities, so knows general saying free and fair elections that have been a thing of the past. In It has been a thing of the past there. But earlier this year in February, Mike Pompeo became the highest ranking administration official to visit there. In years. He went to Minsk. He met with Lukashenko in April. The administration nominated ambassador for the country, Julie Fisher, would be that she would have been the first ambassador there in more than a decade and actually just went up for her confirmation about a week ago. But now it looks as if there are some people on the hill who are saying while we need to hold up this nomination, If we send a diplomat there, it would appear that this is an endorsement of the crackdown. There are others who think well, if ever there's a time that we need someone there Help advocate for democracy. It's now but it looks as if that nomination is held up. So what's interesting is this All comes at a time where there really was this effort, toe warm ties between Washington and Minsk, and now it looks as if once again, Lukashenko going back to his ways of Trying to rigging an election of really maintaining his title as one of Europe's last remaining dictators that may end up destroying any chance for some kind of riel. Diplomatic relations between the two countries. Well, David on Thursday, thousands of women wearing white flooded the streets to protest that violent crackdown on demonstrators that happened during the week of protests. What comes next in Belarus. Well, it's going to be obviously down to developments inside batteries but also kind of slightly grubby great power politics because how his Alexander Lukashenko survives the dictator of this country. Just on the 10 million people for 26 years. It's part because he has been incredibly adept at playing the West and Russia off against each other. So he's taking a lot of money. Over the years from Russia, he has had Vladimir Putin as a patron of last resort, but he is also Occasionally flirted with Europe in first with us because he doesn't want to be taken over wholesale by Russia. China is also a player. President Xi Jinping of China was the first major leader to congratulate Alexander Lukashenko on this kind of grotesquely rigged election as though it was a perfectly good election. China is poured money into Belarus. It's one of its hubs Fishy Jinping's Bolton Road project, so This kind of constant playing back and forth. But the problem is that he is running a road because if he gives the European Union what they want, which is for him to liberalize on back down from crushing these process. You'll probably get swept

"All sorts of cities where ice cream parlors are your local ice cream parlors being affected they've actually taken the nila off of their menus and so i actually have a quote here this is from the bbc so they talked to this woman julie fisher she founded an artisanal ice cream maker called ruby violet seven years ago and she said that quote vanilla was off the menu in her london based outlets for the foreseeable future because she can't afford that pounds it would cost this is like significant and i was reading all sorts of stories from other vanilla producers they're trying to scramble to figure because they have to change their basically how they make their ice cream they have to change intermediaries yellow ice cream producers yes and so they're looking for all sorts of products the are trained to there are companies that are trained to develop other forms of vanilla that can be called on natural actually i thought this was really interesting so standard biotechnology involves inserting gene from an organism into another organism but some biology which they're actually using the energy markets for the next one save for okay for the knock on affect will so this until stuff lake inserting computer generated dna sequences into living cells so basically creating new organisms altogether and that they made a major breakthrough this company called of hoping for nelson that currently they've managed to know they've managed to create a the compound vanillin grow not an vine but rather in a culture of synthetic he's and so growing in vanillin this is still just known yes it's still just been on but all the other vanillin is considered synthetic so this artificial coats on actual maybe it's like some natural technically but they that's natural because of the rules and regulations and how it set up this can be called on actual alright evolve like come on but that would be huge right now it's not as cost effective as needed to be to change vanilla market you know i oh maybe i should finish before i go ahead i get into this but i think that what's so interesting about this and and we we talked something similar with how is that you're putting into chewing on we talked about something similar with we another flavor one this is really good when you chew on it yeah actually we talked about the bug the coca neil so now what is the rent die right now what's interesting is that i think i wish and i wonder if this will happen i okay you really going going to him on this up all here i wish that instead of vanilla would be call to is cultivated maya gas guardianship to this woman who runs his june bug whatever place in the uk and you know she imports vanilla madagascar she imports who knows out okada's mexico you know safran from broccoli making these but and then she her job is to make the ice cream yes you know as we move toward a world where we care more about the actual components of the food and things being on actual which is really what this thing's all about i wish that they just made that that we just let you know the rockin rockets the madda gas are reaons charlotte make up the make vanilla ice cream rather than just make the vanilla because also it's so much better once shipping the benelli you lose all the flavor you might as well just just make the ice cream in you know freezing resin metaphorical resonant and so like i think we will and i hope we do and also for the sake of these people madda gas rocco who are making all the core ingredients but don't get to do the finishing which is where so much of the money is made in the food industry you know i i wish they would just finish the ice cream there that make the ice cream there it would make the chocolate bars and kenya they would they would you know roast the coffee in sumatra rather than shipping it to san francisco to be roasted well it's a huge part of the vanilla market the farmers actually even though it's like record prices they're not paid those all those record high price so what it comes down to middlemen it comes onto all sorts of other things but also the companies so mars is actually going directly to farmers screw moore's that's what i'm saying i wash him but the.
