The International Reaction To Joe Biden's Win

"Farm minister who has now tweeted. Congratulations joe biden. On your spectacular. Victory joined with other nations. Latest around the world congratulating congratulate and on behalf of new zealand. Vicky nice including lights. I want to congratulate president-elect buydell and vice president-elect harris. us allies around. The world have moved quickly to congratulate president. Joe biden vice president-elect kamala harris on their win even as president trump still refuses to concede the election for countries like canada france and germany. Biden's victory could signal a return to cooperation on alliances like nato and treaties including the paris climate agreement but the prospect of a biden administration seems less promising to more authoritarian leaders with whom president trump ford strong relationships during his time in office including north korea's leader kim jong un brazilian president jair bolsonaro chinese president. Xi jinping who so far have all refrained from publicly congratulating biden and harris. Joining me now is yes means. Sirhan london base staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us again. As mean thanks for having me also with us. Clouds ladas professor of history and international affairs at the university of north carolina. chapel hill. Klaus good to have you with us. Thank you hello. How are you doing all right. We are in very interesting political moment right now. The president trump has refused to concede and yet president-elect biden is moving forward and the world is noticing clouds. How would you describe the scope. So far of the international reaction to biden's victory well on the whole thing that has been a lot of rejoicing a lot of applause for biden. I think people are hugely relieved that the trump administration will not have a second term and most people are most leaders in in europe and asia and of people in that country's overjoyed. I six they were really getting fed up for the trump administration. It was too dramatic too. Chaotic to unpredictable and people are relieved to see a new administration. I cost you said the administration was dramatic and unpredictable. And i think many americans would agree with you but it continues to be dramatic and somewhat unpredictable. Given the fact that the trump administration is now calling for recounts and investigations into what they allege voter. Inconsistencies are world leaders looking at that and saying anything about that. The fact that they're still Has not been a concession from president trump. Well del shaking their hands. Most of them are shaking the hats but the key for that sorts to themselves because it is no point to interfere in businesses seen as domestic american politics very few people at least very few democratic leaders have any understanding for what is going on in washington. It seems to be pretty obvious that the was of a free and walls not done in a fraudulent way at all and over. Four million people can vote for biden Rather than for trump's majority will lots of for millions of popular vote. He won miss. Four million people and the people have accepted. That biden is president-elect. And booby the new president but they are. You know wondering what's going on in washington but hardly anyone is actually surprised. At the trump administration would embark on such a course of action because that fits in with what is administration was like chaotic dramatic unpredictable and quite irrational to some extent mean given what klaus just laid out there in terms of the continued reaction to the world leaders at least us allies. Saying you know okay. We'll watch what's happening and see how this all plays out. How much of the reaction you think is excitement about biden himself versus relief about removing president trump from office. It's a great question. I mean it's worth noting An and i thought can of clauses overview spot on that you know for a lot of world biden is a very familiar character He certainly not new to the world stage. I think it was in. Benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime ministers congratulations that he noted that he's known biden for forty years. And i think a lot of world leaders know biden. So it's i. I think probably if i had to guess my assessment would be that it's probably the latter. I think a lot of i think a lot of the protests you are seeing in the us in the days after the result was finally announced was probably fell at least to me is an american observing from afar like a lot more relief than necessarily you know excitement. This isn't to say that you know. Folks don't like biden or unexcited to see him at the helm on his set a recognizable figure. But i think the world generally kind of just took a big sigh of relief that you know here returns a. Us option that recognizes. The us is traditional role in the world and will hopefully be kind of retaking that spot on the international stage. And yasmin. you are in london. Where prime minister. Boris johnson has had a strong relationship with president trump. How do you think this relationship between the us and the uk will evolve under a biden administration. It's a really good question. There's certainly been a lot of chatter about that very thing here kind of leading up to the us election and now after that we knew the result i think there is some conjecture that you know obviously as you just said President trump and prime minister. Johnson had a pretty good relationship. I think a lot of that stemmed from the fact that president trump was quite a big supporter of brexit. And you know. I think kind of quite appreciated the sort of comparisons between him and johnson superficial is some of the may be particularly. I think he quite liked references to johnson. As britain trump some remembering correctly and there has been some talk about some potential tensions between biden administration and johnson's downing street. I'm particularly with regard to brexit. Biden has been very clear about his support for the good friday agreement and opposing anything that would undermine it. And i think there's also some talk about how you know johnson before he was prime minister had made some comments with regard to president obama's support for britain staying in the eu. Where i think he made comments about obama's kenyan ancestry in how he had an ancestral dislike of the british empire so these are no doubt comments that administration would probably remember well. But i think it's worth noting that you know. These are things. I do not think are going to shake up the uk us relationship. In a major way. I think there's a lot more that And biden share particularly with regard to issues like climate change like the iran deal and. Yeah i mean. I think more broadly i would expect pretty good. Relations between the us and the uk going forward While it's certainly true. That trump and johnson had had a decent relationship I think you know the uk is is certainly a country that would see its relationship with the us being important irrespective of who's empower claus does not same theory hold true for other. You leaders like angela. Merkel for example and wilma call who themselves had troubled relationships with president trump. And who i can imagine so far are somewhat relieved to see this New administration elect. Yeah the But regarding johnson outside that johnson dossier a little insecure. He was the first international leader. I believe who fold up biden and congratulate him. They said i think that shows the level of insecurity and also abidance irish background. Bill make him wonder how. how how much you consult poured onto the united states in the future and the united vendor the united kingdom needs a trade. Deal the us. And i think he is for it. You know i think he would probably have seen a second trump administration as being more helpful regarding angela merkel and other european leaders. They certainly were relieved. Undiplomatic led a very bad relationship with trump or with raza. Put it the other way. Round a macro tried in various locations to make overtures to trump it was trump really rejected it who couldn't really in the end stand. Angela merkel nothing kid. He had a problem with female leaders. You had the problem as lead us. Who voted much more open to immigration and to do something about asylum people who were looking for asylum in their countries and he could understand and he also criticised the eu including germany for its huge trade deficit of us united states or rather to the united states of course had trade deficit busy you and he almost criticized the eu and it's trade policies. As much as he did china he called the eu. Actually a foe. Which is you know really surprising that you consider your most longest standing allies in the world that you suddenly regard them. As foes at least in trade relations. So underline michael and the german establishment as well as the french and other foreign policies tablets in europe are usually relieved that they see the end of the trump administration and us yes-men just that biden has a very good reputation. He is regarded to be quite honest as perhaps a little too old for the job but on the other hand is a centrist is not extreme is on the last notes of right people know him they a appreciate his his personality is a people person you some would say. Here's a backslapping sort of politician but much more extrovert much. More outgoing and much more ready to compromise than Trump was so all that shouting at nato summits or g seven summits all that Very bad atmosphere attention. The you know the almost talk about to break up of nato and talk about that trump wanted to undermine the quesion of political union of the european union all that will be a thing of the past because by and his administration can be expected to be very constructive to what nate to enter to you however having said that may the last sort biden will also insist on the european spending more money on their defense efforts so he will not be softer regarding nate and regarding the defense efforts of the europeans and here europe really needs to do something because that is an old complaint which goes back to the obama administration and before that wasn't actually unique to the trump administration. And the you know that they are very reluctant to spend more on defense. But i think a practice the president biden will actually be more successful in persuading them at. That would be the right thing to do as you mentioned. Joe biden's age. And i think that that's something that we must talk about because if something happens to joe biden we could be looking at a president kamala harris. And i'm wondering this is something that came up yesterday in our conversation about The role that black women played in american democracy in electing joe biden. We've seen kamala harris the first woman of color to ever sit in that role that i wonder how she will be received by world leaders. Yasmine your thoughts on that yet. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. Obviously that history-making of of her being elected the first female of vice president of colors obviously huge certainly noteworthy among a lot of the congratulations. that were received. I think it was prime minister. Narendra modi of india who actually dedicated an entire tweet just tacoma harris herself And i think the reason for that is is obvious. Obviously her indian heritage. He he sees that is is an opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between india and the us. but yeah. i mean. I don't know i would anticipate We as you say. Given president-elect biden's age that kamala harris could have a more hands on role than previous vice presidents that we've seen In in for that reason we may find that world leaders will quickly get to know come harris in a way that perhaps they didn't get to know vice presidents of the past and it seems just based on the comments that we've seen uncle mirko also an a made a comment about looking forward to meeting a kamala harris that we could expect that you know the world will be paying attention to both of them very much. Not just biden klaus What's been the reaction From china and president xi jinping so far there hasn't been much of a reaction. Xi jinping has kept quiet. We don't quite know why this speculation that perhaps xi jinping want antagonize the trump administration while it is still in office. The course and ten weeks you can do a lot of arm. And he knows that relations between china and the united states are difficult as they are that will continue to be difficult under the biden administration. So he's keeping a low profile on the social media in china have however been lots of comments. Some people really regretful that Trump is leaving because it made the united states weaker. It created a vacuum in international affairs which was appreciated by some observers in china as us believe you know it is much better to have a more stable more predictable government even if that government is perhaps more strategic in its relations with china. But they appreciate that proper possible predictability and international affairs so essentially. It's difficult to say what the leadership actually things and we will have to wait until eventually shipping and The foreign ministry in beijing will come out with a statement but they will do so nothing at the latest one set to mastic insecurity about the election. Outcome has been resolved than they of course will congratulate her joe biden and kabila harris now of course Clouds one country that we know has been watching the disarray In the united states or at least the tension in the united states has been russia. What have we heard if anything from vladimir putin and or his administration so far the gun russia's keeping a low profile putin hasn't congratulated i them and He is keeping quiet. Does not much coming out of russia but the they of course are disappointed. That trump did not win the second term. And there's been talk about disinformation campaigns. Not quite as much as two sixteen but russia did its bid to perhaps enable second trump victory and trump. However the to be quite. Frank hasn't been soft on russia. The administration perhaps not the president. Personally who always had such soft spot for putin and very confidential talks with him and no one really knows. What when on doing these talks but when you look at his policy his administration's policies towards a russia that wasn't soft all imposed over forty times a new sanctions on russia. So he the administration actually hasn't been soft on putin. But i believe that russia fears of fields that the unpredictability and the chaos and the. Let's say less focused way. of the trump administration than what could you can normally expect from an american administration that that in the end helped a russia that often the president Closed both ice and that influenced also of foreign policy. Make us in his administration like the state department. Yes maine another Interesting figure here is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has been a very close ally of president trump And that even translated into votes here. In the united states for the president from certain jewish orthodox communities. He congratulated joe biden and comma harris this past weekend. What do you expect to see from. Benjamin netanyahu in the near term when it comes to us. Israeli relations under a joe biden. I think this is something. That doesn't just apply to benjamin netanyahu but leeds had good relationships with president trump. I think narendra modi also falls into this category. And even figures like victor or bonham road regurgitate both of whom have also congratulated President elected biden But you know. I think he's a netanyahu in particular is a leader who obviously has a vested interest in maintaining a good. Us israel relationship irrespective of. Who's in the white house. It's no secret that obviously he benefited quite a lot. From having president trump in the white house the the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem being obviously one of those Kind of hallmark examples of a win for him That said He obviously you know. He recognizes that an admin the administration is changing. And i think he wants to shore up that relationship. But you know there's it it's been reported That the trump administration is hoping to kind of work with the israelis to sort of applies more punitive measures on tehran. Before trump leaves the white house in the form of sanctions to kind of make it more difficult for biden to return to the iran nuclear deal and try to bring that back it. This isn't to say that. Netanyahu and biden would necessarily see eye to eye on a lot of things i think we would probably see under a biden administration a return to the bit of the more traditional tone that we've known the us to take these israel Opposition to settlement expansion. That sort of thing support for a two state solution but indeed it will not be as rosy of friendship As we've seen between that and your home trump that's for sure we should also note that President trump's administration was also very close with bolsonaro of brazil. Both are considered to have really supported Populist movements and i'm wondering whether or not Desirable not who's also refrained from Congratulating harrison biden on their win and other populist movements across the world are looking at this and saying well maybe this is signals a change. Here i think it's definitely a loss for them. It's a setback. Because you know. I think particularly for leaders like bolsonaro. Who really sort of you know played on his relationship with president trump domestically I think this is a loss because you know even before particularly with populist movements even in places on like brazil where they aren't in power they could turn and look to president trump until their supporters. Look you know he's able to achieve this in the united states so we can achieve at here if know the greatest the most powerful leader in the world can do this that we can do this where we are so without question. I think it's it's a setback for them They lose that. You know that key ally in the white house But that said i think you know populous leaders like minded leaders to trump. Who could potentially take that narrative and sort of utilize it in their favor so While it is a loss for them. I don't necessarily think that it will end. Sort of their relationship trump or or will end them using trump is sort of an example to their benefit. Yes means seer. Han is a london.

Amazons Luna, new Echo and indoor flying drones: What you need to know

"Wouldn't these benchmarks ribbon has been all over this welcome band hey. So you spent the last forty, five minutes basically live tweeting in catching every bit of news. There's a lot to break down but let's get to what most people are familiar with the those are echoes speakers. Talk about the new Echo Speaker that looks a bit more globe ish or roundish yet it's a spherical design and Amazon definitely did a good job of keeping a lot of its hardware. CHANGES UPDATES quiet this year there were way more rumors last year, but this year the just you know there wasn't that much that we knew what to expect. We were hoping for maybe a home robot and that didn't really happen what I would argue about these spherical echoes is that people probably aren't GonNa WanNa bother updating their existing echo line with these products they you know unless unless the audio quality and the quality of Alexa, being able to understand you is so significantly better than it makes sense to do that Kabila stick with what they have except for the echo dots for kids which are ridiculously adorable in. are like you know there's like one that looks like a Tiger I. Think there's another one that looks like. Zebra. So I think they did a really good job of making them lot cuter in fetter for kids. Yeah. I noticed that that those are the the process of stuck out my eye because were so unbelievably adorable Annika see my kid like having a conversation with them that sound super. Precious. they did a lot with kids. They offered a kids profile talk about some of the kidnappings as relates to so that the family aspect of Amazon customers yeah. The kid's profile was probably the most significant one which basically. From what I understand about it if you create a kids profile then. You're echoes throughout the House will respond to your kid in kid friendlier kid appropriate fashions that something that you can already do with an echo doubt kids if you set it up that way, this way that feature could in theory follow the kid around the house. So you don't actually have to set up each device specifically for that, which is annoying for parents in case you want to. Listen to music that is in specifically or explicitly kid friendly so that that I would say it was like. One of the more significant amount announcements related to that, and I'm just curious if there were any other any extra privacy features that come with the kids mode. Just so folks don't have to be worried so for for the kids mode. They've they've done that quite a bit already where it's just much more targeted for kids So there are fewer services there are fewer skills You can't ask it a variety of different questions. So that it's much narrower, much more targeted for kids and it's been like that the whole time so. Just, basically, Alexa but much more curated version

"Now I know both of you are all about encouraging the voice tech world to think beyond whether music why do you think. The voice channel is underutilized in spite of the exploding adoption and Sunday. Start with you. I think the basic reason here is this. Particular Channel is still clearing that you glazed brands to brands ousted. Lot really last. This particular channel to engage with the customers veto to their customers in a meaningful manner which again brings gloves to the question. As to why are they not using the journal would effectively which we believe in this basically comes from interaction what action with a number of prospects and planes that have been working with right. I think it boils down to three things. One is. People are obeyed off off the exploding adoption of ways and smart speakers and You know the numbers are published regularly. But this didn't understand as to what is the use case that they can today the loss lack of education especially when the decision because as to how they can meaningfully engaged with the second Christian that the always face redoubt prospects and customers Hobie blue that skill or election exists somehow been only I believe that if they have say still have to market but some of that doesn't do for the voice skills our actions that they have still not able what do we aligned with the fact that that would also require a marketing make glove air in and there is an action awful brand with that that you can get into things and last but not least is the vision of Ottawa Everyone says okay. If you do this what is the auto identikit. And because of the spill Waverley as merely. Don't have a lot of the Matrix two pools that okay. This is what okay your customer kicks. Rabin Please Bay explicit all your amd market your brand of interest would increase planes and so on and so I think education and the understanding about marketing. His skills in action is also part of creating these things and the absence of metrics on three things instead. I believe that brands are not really placing the battalion. The Nicholas you know one more part to be added to that if you really look at that Voices relatively new. Oh and boys get be heavily utilized once you know part of our day to day life credit union. Now if you really look at that There is a slight I changing day. Track to scrape. That happens with the venue started jumping into the computer and the mobile revolution.

You know all these and be really comfortably asked it. Takes some behavioral changes for me matter of time to exploit and it is happening slowly and the the product British on. Yeah I think all the points both of you made are very true. I think that we're seeing that quite often. So what are some real use cases that brands can explore floor. That maybe they haven't thought of and can you share some of the interesting use cases you're dealing with large clients around the world. I think we have been grateful to look on pretty forward looking use cases when somebody nights claims across the blue out example Bank in Singapore and this is pretty large bank one hundred ninety billion dollars in assets under management stock use case we want to build a basic prisons on Weiss Sunderland.

The Fatherhood Playbook - The Elementary Years

"This podcast is for men husbands and fathers in all stages of life where we promote and advocate Ruben Biblical principles relieving a lasting lasting legacy lance last time we talked about these stages we were on phase one and early development and before we get into phase two do which I'm thankful that I am out of face to which as you ages five twelve years elementary years we kind of wanted to do a little bit of I don't know if we want to call it house cleaning but maybe we'll say home focusing and some different stages or styles of parenting the along this journey with that Lance. What do you think yeah just for all the listeners if he didn't hear the first podcast first podcast uh-huh. What was this is crazy Africa era over here? I don't know what's going on now. If you guys didn't hear the first per cut podcast. Why can't I say that word today podcast if you didn't hear the first podcast either by to go back and listen to it but it kind of talks about where this thing came from essentially what we're looking for when I started off in parenting parenting else look for two things and authentic biblical parenting philosophy apparent gloss visa had a proven track record of producing children. WHO become christ-centered adults in the first one? We talked Dante member. We talked a lot about Barna research. It's just a lot of the research out there. That said hey listen. If you WANNA raise kids who grew up to be Senator Dole some certain things you can look at that are actually based on research evidence based practices that will help you get there so I invite you guys if you didn't listen to that. Go back and listen to it but today. We're GONNA Kinda that was the first one was birth through five years today. We're going to cover her five years through elementary and will be a good idea to you know so. We'll put some of these books so these links. Maybe it'd be WANNA buy them on Amazon Lance. If you can link it up revolutionary parenting yeah yeah it's going to do if eighth tim show some timmel stuff sure and get resource for our listeners. I won't I won't even put those like annoying. what do you call it like. When would if you buy it through us. We get a kickback type. I would just be like hey go on Amazon finding if you came into like money or you WanNa you know do a legacy dad's retreat you know and you just want to donate that to to the Bible one three C. You know we'll get that up and running out in Idaho or somewhere like that. If you get a million dollar resort you just WANNA. Give us what will work. We'll spend the rest of our day's work in you know fulltime with Dad's getting this stuff straight but for all the other listeners like like Lance and I you know we don't want a nickel and dime you and Hey we want you guys getting as much from from this as we do and were accountable to you guys as you are to us so we hope that what we say what we do and going forward especially in these next few moments. We don't want to offend but we definitely want you to test what we're saying against scripture absolutely so so to your talk about this so I wrote that it's been about ten years now since I wrote that original blog post on overprotective. Teke parenting and Matt. I remember when I wrote this thing you know. I was talking about the dangers of why this parenting style it. It just had long term implications everything that I read everything from you know Biblical stuff that my mentors were teaching me said this is just a bad route to go down to but man. Can you tell you what I would. I wouldn't into some of the popular Christian parenting forums and I was talking about this like hey this overprotective parenting stuff is really bad and you would the thought I went in there and burned Bible because I had literally you know parents coming out of the woodwork mom's coming out of the woodwork. Just basically saying like you are absolutely wrong. You don't know what you're talking about. We have to protect our kids. We have to do you know and and it was just like I think maybe because they were probably in and that overprotective phase they didn't want to hear it but you know so low behold a lot of researchers come out recently that was in the last is ten years since I wrote this podcast had says stuff is just destructive and if you don't know what we're talking about so overprotective parenting and over protective parent wants to protect the child from harm hurt and pain unhappiness bad experience rejection hurt feelings failure disappointment sin those types the things so but the way they try to do it. They try to create this unrealistic environment like environment. That's completely free of any sin or outside influence or media and they use really get involved in the over management of the decisions and lives of the children so for the guys out there like me than the android also wetlands is saying that the parents don't like the fact that there's winners and loser's so they'll take the score out of a kid's baseball game and everybody wins and everybody gets trophies at the end of the game layman's yeah yeah and I think some of it's not even that some of it was crazy stuff like you know I'm not GonNa wit. Let my kids watch Disney movies because you know like like I remember this this slip big topic. It was like I'm not going to let my kids watch a lad and because there's a genie and it promotes magic and analysts stuff like that and I was kind sound like that is that is that really is that what we're afraid of is that I mean with all the things you know. We're going to be afraid of Disney's Aladdin but you some of the critical things you see. I think is like a lot of times. Were let's see the kid. The kid falls or gets hurts or something like that and it's like like mom running into took like comfort the kid when there's no distress or what I saw a lot Christian parents is to is trying to create these overly really strict rules that if you know to try to keep the child from doing anything wrong or punishment that didn't fit the crime. Abbas like overly harsh discipline for really minor offenses in them make any cognitive Kabila's no decisions yeah no you're not you're not developing their cognitive thought in the sense that they have to ask you to go to the bathroom and I mean yeah. I actually know parents that legitimately hear kids ask mom. Can I go to the bathroom and you know and Dante. I'll say I mean we're we're. We're we're kind of you know being tongue in cheek in beating these parents l. but but I I honestly believe this because I used to get really harsh and I was like why can't you see this is so destructive obstructive but you know when I was doing the parenting conference and I would actually talk to parents I on this was a mean I'm being honest here and being graceful and I think a lot of these parents like like what while I think they were trying to be overprotective really out of a sense of love for the child. The problem was is that there are philosophy and their methodology that they you you tried to accomplish with was flawed and it often had disastrous results in it and it wasn't based on anything Biblical I don't know where in my Bible Dante too I read over and over fear this fear that fear that you know fear all these things of fear. Yeah live a life of fear and make sure our kids grow up to know that they need to be fear based of everything in the world and what I believe the Bible commands us over and over his fear not fear not fear not now. If if you're listening don't get me wrong. We're not talking about you know telling three year olds to go hang out in the bad part of town. Send them at the mall. You know at six years old I mean we there's boundaries that kids need every child needs boundaries. Yeah it's age appropriate but but I think we in yeah yeah and I think look what you were saying on to. Its if the child is of the age where they can make a decision for themselves but the parent is still making that decision for them. That's that that's kind of an issue. You know so you know. I was thinking about this when we were going to do this podcast and I so I just looked up because as I really haven't looked a lot at the overprotective parenting stuff or you know years and years now so I just punched into Google to see what I come up with and the crazy thing is is for as much grief as I got for writing that post ten years later we now have a bunch of peer reviewed research and results of the negative effects of this style of parenting and some of the research and these are actual like peer reviewed clinical research that was done in some of the stuff. I saw is pretty scary. It's like overprotective. Parenting parenting has been proven to increase levels of like social problems hyper aggression children becoming more antisocial increase lying to parents against developing anxiety disorders having greater dependence on parents as they grow older greater risk-taking as they get to the teen years lower self esteem him and actually higher rates of being bullied so I mean there was not anything I could find that was really positive about being overprotective overprotective or coddling your children so yeah I throw that out there and and Dante it sounds like you've had some experience with this and like I said said I really think I think parents are there. They think this is they think it's they're doing it out of love but they just go overboard in some of these areas what do you what do you think on that. Dante yeah and it's almost to the point like you almost wish for a moment in time you could just pull them up out of that tree of that child well that's in front of them and have them look over like the gamut of all parents and all kids and just to see you know what like some good processes says versus bad processes and you know if you you know if you're Kinda resembling or you're getting a little bit offended that we're we're poking into your backyard here on the overprotective detect apparent you know likewise. There's the other side of the spectrum on the parent that is completely disengaged and bold. Have you know negative constraints and not good for the child development. You know whether we like it or not. Children do need boundaries. Mom Dad you know if you live on a busy street and you're over protective and you know that going into the middle of that street you know will cause pain in your helicopter on that. This is not what we're talking about but we're talking about the things where you're having the child live out of fear in this case we're apparent literally up until like eighteen year olds asking their their their mom if they could go to the bathroom you know in having me say of course you go to the bathroom. You're you're a guy you want to go right here. I would suggest you don't do that in front of the women but go behind Bush and having the mother look at me but basically knowing that hey look you can try and practices at home but I have a relationship with his child to that aim flying Ryan and and so it wasn't me being a jerk or whatever but just having fun with it being lighthearted leading the kid relax and showing that hey you know you gotta grow up you gotTa to pass that torch and and the the caution that I want to say if you are finding yourself that you're micromanage everything of to this kid where they go to school what sports tape and or your overcome packing their schedule realized that as much as we think that we're developing the child as land says scientific aim typic- and this isn't just christian-based this is you know pure raw data that you are in that we are inadvertently causing distress and just worry and that can metamorphasized into a whole bunch of other things

Our Super AvGeek Week

"And welcome to episode sixty six of ask talk. I am passionate here as always with Jason Rabinowitz and we've got a good one this week. This is a really good show. I mean it might possibly be one of the most exciting at least for US episodes of the podcast we've ever done now. We obviously haven't recorded yet so we can't quite vouch that. It's going to be good as we think it's going to be but I think it's going to be as good as we think it's going to be. Portions of this episode have been prerecorded and reformatted to fit your ears exactly so here's the format of the episode. We did some things in the past couple of weeks. We're going to definitely talk about those. We've got some special guests coming up by won't ruin it quite yet. Ian Left his house I did. I left my house twice in one week. I didn't even I didn't only leave my house twice choice in one week. I went to a different state twice in one week. You went to three state. Why I left the state but yeah yeah we'll get to that a little bit later on the show because we've got some some real special stuff coming up but in the meantime news waits for no podcast her and that's right so who it has also been an incredibly busy week on that front and I think we should just dive right in with what happened in in Miami with the American Airlines mechanic in that he was arrested for sabotage yeah yeah you shouldn't do that so so if you're you're not aware if you're not from the United States or or hard to imagine you don't keep a close eye in the industry if you are listening to this podcast but American and its its mechanics union aircraft mechanic union have been going at it quite hard for the past few months over contract renegotiations uh-huh and it has not been subtle the leader of Americans mechanics union has not so subtly called for blood and and unfortunately when most people is see this kind of rhetoric. Can they negotiate a tactic. They brush it off. There's always that few percent of if people who take it to heart and do really really really really stupid things and unfortunately this stupid thing happened to be a the American Airlines mechanic at Miami International decided. I really don't like the way the negotiations are going. They've hurt me economically in some way. I'm going into sabotage plane to get overtime to fix the plane I sabotage in not only did he do that but he went about doing it in a very stupid easy to catch way and and there is a a very large investigation into how this happened why it happened why he would do it and I hope he sees many many years of prison time yeah. It's so what happened was is he sprayed or I don't know the exact method of the foam delivery but foam ended up covering a piece of the navigation system that corrupted the ability of the system to function properly. The pilots began their taxi Acsi out on the tax that they never even made it to the runway. This was a pilot or taxing for departure and something's very wrong with the navigation system so they turned around and went back to the gate other mechanics opened up the plane and said bulled that's not supposed to be there and things kind of went from there as as far as the investigation beginning thankfully the other mechanics didn't keep to themselves and keep it in the family they contacted the authorities and corporate security in Mia Miami police and they tracked down very easily who did this. I read the FBI complaint and the employees who sabotage aircraft had a very pronounced the limp and they were able to find video of going to the aircraft that he wasn't ever supposed to touch he typically never left the hanger but in this instance he actually went out to the gate and tampered with the aircraft left and they were able to trace it all back to him and he just outright admitted it all which is I guess good mix prosecution easier but I guess the saving grace of this is that the aircraft work the way it was supposed to it detected an issue at as in described that he disconnected a cable or some sort of air sensor and physically sabotaged it putting Styrofoam in gluing it in the unbelievable that he would leave so much physical evidence behind but the aircraft sense that there was something wrong long and it returned to Gates but there have definitely been cases in the past were not having the proper airspeed data has indeed caused fatal accidents. It's several incidents with Boeing other manufacturer aircrafts and thankfully the aircraft in this instance did what it was supposed to do. Identified the issue and they went back to the gate right but his intention was not to harm the aircraft of the passengers but very easily could have whether his intention was to or not to do so right exactly. It doesn't matter what his intentions were matters. What could have happened and I asked around you know is this was a serious surfing obviously but was this something that that could have easily led to an accident and the answer. I got was not conclusive mostly because we don't know exactly clearly kind of what he did. It wasn't them thankfully. I guess Kinda broadcast hide but like you said I mean there's always the possibility buddy when we're talking about aircrafts that any issue could compound itself especially once the aircraft's in the air and thankfully the American Airlines mechanic seed has thrown own this employee under the bus and completely condoned his behavior that could have gone the other way. The union could have defended him or who knows what but it was good to see them very quickly. Put out a release saying this guy sucks. He doesn't speak for us. We obviously never condone tempering with an aircraft. I don't think that's actually with with the release said that would be some refreshing honesty not a direct credit anyone but at the same time I feel like his actions were directly influenced by the rhetoric coming from the Union. There's that one video from a couple of months ago where the head of union literally calls for blood and declares war on their own airline so if that wasn't unsettling enough this this really shines a bad light on the union unfortunately on American as well because this just can't happen. It should never happen. It is terrible for passengers used to see this on the news and think oh their mechanics on rogue and they're back to be sabotaging your craft. It's just a one off case but man. That's a battle yeah it shall we switched is to a much happier story involving what involving a pilot who just wanted to go on vacation see there are bad employees like be be mechanic down at. Miami and there aren't good employees and this may be easyjet pilot for Manchester Yeah. This may be a bit of a self serving. Good deed read hot air. No no absolutely not it was self serving but it was also kind of amazing and apparently this has happened before but this is quite amazing in that. I'm an easy jet pilot was was ready to depart Manchester. I'd go down to vacation. I think in Spain was it yeah I'll I'll contact yeah yeah him and his family and unfortunately unfortunately one of the two pilots for his flight that he was a passenger on did not show up whether they were operational issues or crew scheduling this was the Monday following the Sunday Sunday French air traffic control issues. I think that French had radar issues and so a lot of easyjet flights got cancelled and and the ones that did run ended up you you know how the Easyjet operates a lot of flights where they go out in back or they go one two three and then they're supposed to end up at three but they were only able to get to two and so they their operations were a little out of sync the following morning yes so this pilot rather than leading the fight be cancelled and vacations ruined. He said screw it. I'll fly the plane. I got pilot's license. I got my ID. What's fire this thing up in get down to Spain yeah. That's got to be one of those things where you can't tell. It's a joke at first. If you're a passenger there was a woman who recorded video of him making the announcement about what was happening and I guess is is this guy serious. Is this actually happening and for the plane high Bill. I don't have a uniform but I'll be flying your plane today basically what he said Yeah. I mean let people know the pilot. Wasn't you know the the captain was able to make the flight and then all of a sudden. He's he's in a perfect position to fly down there so they went. I think one of the articles I saw the airport ops had called the headquarters and said hey we won't operate this flight with with the off duty pilots and I said Okay we'll call you back in about thirty seconds later. They called back and say go get the flight out. Just go just go who cares what he's wearing. Yeah it's a lot of e U two six four compensation that they will not have to pay the bills willing to operate a flight on his precious vacation die that thought about that you competition will never even occurred to me but yeah I guess I guess that that was some quick math that they did. Whatever we have to pay you it's far less than we would have spent the passengers singers so the reincarnation of the fourth or fifth version of the wild brand this week. Maybe we sort of yeah really a this is ludicrous. Did you watch the press conference. I couldn't get through the whole thing it was it was to Joseph Heller esque. I think it was also very trumpian and a lot of ways where she look. Let's back up a few steps. Assure bio meets yeah so there's a is an investment for a woman. I don't really know if she is an investment firm what but but she is very much of the opinion that wow air is a brand worth salvaging and salvaging now while come back now so they sank like eighty six million dollars which is half of the amount due or something along those lines but they think a lot of money into buying the how the remnants of wow air air and apparently they want to relaunch service between Iceland and Washington Dulles next month this coming October with the two unidentified aircraft. I guess they have them in mind. Along with dedicated cargo freighters they have two that are ready to go to to bring they're beautiful fish and delicious water out of Iceland as she kept saying what they're beautiful flight attendants majestic skies and the whole thing is I don't know anyone that thinks wow Ariza brand word saving came and went so quickly in spectacular fashion stranded a lot of people and brought Icelandair to the brink of financial ruin by its back. I guess maybe kind of I think this is going to fall into the category of Kabila. Leave it. When I see it type thing the yeah the whole idea bringing back wow I get it was a a very easy easy brand to understand. I mean wow the planes are per bowl. You've got you fly to Iceland and you fly back and forth. I get that that proposition is very easy. This seems to be taking that ease of recognisability and turning it into this weird hybrid hybrid like the cargo thing why not just start cargo flights. I don't understand how that's a wild thing I don't know and the whole thing of of wow is supposed to be an ultra low cost carrier. That's what they were. That's what SORTA worked for them but at the same time she's talking about. We want to have a a lounge Catholic for all our passengers. We don't charge for water and we want to have Michelin starred Chefs Lady. That's not how ultra low cost carriers work. You have to pay for all those things so you can make money. Unfortunately our didn't make enough money. Even being ultra low cost a bottom barrel pay for everything. I don't know if she's ever operated braided airline in the past. I don't believe so but an airline cannot on the one hand the ultra low cost and at the same time have lounges for everyone and give you free Ramillo's on a five hour transatlantic redeye from Washington to Iceland it just none of that bath checks out but it sounds like a recipe for a very very nice ace airline that will operate for one week yes so. I don't like to throw them. Throw them away so quickly but do not book a flight on this airline. Let's start offering offering it because I don't understand how they could turn around to start offering flights this October so damn quickly. It doesn't make sense. I don't do that unless it's so cheap you can just throw the forty bucks fairway not care. I mean if I'm going to get a trip to Iceland free water. 'cause I mean okay but the water is delicious and Michelle Starr meal and do wait a minute. Wait a minute. I just figured it out. The whole cargo think they're gonNa make you carry the cargo in your hands into the seat. Aren't that's a nice value add proposition. That's you're going to have to hold the fish yeah. That's going to be so cheap so we can't eat the fish we have. Have you just have to hold fit. You are the cargo carrier. Oh well yeah the whole thing. Is it reeks of like eastern nine or something like that just but I don't really know. We got to see this week but that lead story for later in the episode yeah so yeah while coming back second apparently very quickly. I don't buy it. I don't see the need for its but shore speaking of airlines which are a little confusing confusing and usually on our radar we continue to question whether Norwegian will exist in the medium term future yeah or even short turn this short term future yeah. They are having worse financial issues than than usual usual. They've really a bunch of external factors of really hit Norwegian hard for when they started long operations. Boeing was late delivering the seven eight seven which was unfortunate fortunate so they started operations with their craft from anyone who had them and then the Trent went thousands broke and so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone that could have than the seven three. Max grounded so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone who they could find sensing a pattern here. I'm getting the pattern here and so speaking of wet lease just a few of the current wet lease operations operating on behalf of Norwegian a euro-atlantic seven six seven the high flight eight hundred eighty a high flame three forty develop a

Disbelief, dysfunction, disaster: Congos Ebola outbreak

"A year ago today an outbreak of Ebola began in Congo. It's grown into the second worst anywhere ever. Some two thousand six hundred people have been diagnosed of whom about two-thirds of died last month. The the World Health Organization declared a global emergency fearing further spread to neighboring countries the challenges of fighting the outbreak are telling of the broader troubles of this vast unstable stable country. We were in Congo pursuing Barati of story but one of the things particularly interested me was looking at the east of the country the parts that are afflicted both by Bola and by Conflict Robert Guests is the economists foreign The volcanoes is surprisingly thinly populated and you see visible signs of rebels of militiamen hiding in the bush. You See <hes> illegal thumbs in in in in nature parks. What you don't see is paved roads through hardly any in Congo and quite often when you're flying places. You don't see much in the way of light either. There are whole cities of a million also the don't have grid electricity and you see their checkpoints on on bridges where people made to wash their feet and the hands to try to stop the spread of the disease so how can <hes> a proper response to the Ebola crisis happened in a place that has so little infrastructure structure what you can do is you can spot people who have high temperatures put them under observation test them to see if they develop a burger if they do you isolate them you can put them behind and <hes> clear plastic whether their families can visit them and see them but where they went catch anything from them and then if someone does have Ebola you track all the people they've been in contact with you. Ask them you find out so you you you have to emphasize the people that they can be cured. If you get an umbrella treatment center within a couple of days as of contracting the disease you have more than ninety percent chance of being cured but if you wait until the diseases is fully fully developed after a couple of weeks you all very he probably going to die so it's essential that you get that quickly and that's very hard place like Congo whether a very few good roads on what roads that other often gunman blocking them and so a gunman on the roads are are connected to what you're really there for the the attacks on the clinics absolutely might colleague Iraq London. I flew into Tembo to talk to the people at the clinic said there had been burned down now. You might think that's bizarre thing for anyone to do but nonetheless there have been like like two hundred attacks so far this year on the workers and clinics and it's actually quite common for the gunman to destroy these places. Dr Who'd been there when one of the clinics were burned down. What was it the Dalai is talking to and she overheard the attackers explaining if you liked what they would do to set up a ski sponsor this should Vicky? They were accusing the health workers of enriching themselves two why would they why would they think that doctors trying to solve. This disease are enriching themselves off the people in the voters. Don't believe that Bowler Israel they think it's something that's been made up their intensely suspicious both of their own government which is always oppressed them and of outsiders they've been invaded and brutalized many times they assume that people in power are using their power to steal money and so when they see these foreigners coming in and big full by fours fours and armoured escorts and with clearly lots of money they assume that anyone working in it must be profiteering and some of the local warlords and politicians are. A keen to encourage these kind of dangerous myths because they want peace at the action and today we believe stirrup attacks against a bullock clinics clinics to punish and deter and if the NGOs who make it too difficult for them to get a piece of the action to get a piece of the money that's coming in and propagate the myth that Ebola isn't even real yes which David Gresley the U._N.'s Big Honcho coordinating the response and and he talked about another conspiracy theory this came about in part because of the postponement of the elections here in the communities affected by a bullet the end of December last year this is during the presidential election action and this was perceived by many because the rationale was was that it was due to the epidemic that bullet was manufactured as an excuse to deny them the right to vote for the presidency in fact they were not able to vote for president that was a source of much misinformation disinformation by political local leaders who who wanted to emphasize that so there is this resentment. There is <hes> this this misinformation about the the virus itself there is this lack of infrastructure. There is ongoing violence including against the very people who are trying to solve this. I mean as someone who's been there. What what do you think should be done? How could this be perfect? All the time. The thousands and thousands of people being killed in Congo's various civil laws. The world didn't pay very much attention. They imagined that it wouldn't affect them now. The other epidemic has shown that insecurity in Congo does have consequences for the outside world. Finally people are starting to pay attention but it'd be great if they pay attention to the underlying causes of why it's so difficult to stop a boater epidemics in the country where it an interesting political cove point in Congo now they've had an appalling larcenous dictatorship for the past eighteen years under President Joseph Kabila and the good news is that he's not president anymore the bad news is that the guy who's replaced him Felix. She's a Katie didn't win the election. In December the was a stitch up and there's now a kind of power struggle between the president and the current president and there's an opportunity because it's effectively a new regime for the outside world the have some influence here and it's up to the outside world to be in there to push them in the right direction to give technical advice to help with sudden emergencies like Kit Bowler to keep the U._N.. Peacekeeping Forces keeping a lid on the east of the country where the government doesn't really control what's happening and to hope that we can push the country in a direction frankly the Congolese people want to go but what about right now the World Health Organization has declared this as a global emergency today. There's news that Rwanda is is taking steps to close its border with Congo. What's the smartest policy at this point the knee jerk response from a lot of people in the outside world as to say that if you've got a boater over in one place let's seal the borders and stop it from getting out? That's exactly the wrong thing to do. I you can't possibly seal the borders of gigantic and ill-governed place like Congo. What you do is you would make people who wanted to get somewhere to their secretly is very easy to do and then you can't keep track of them? The way you stop something like Ebola going around as you keep track of WHO's going where and if you catch someone at a border crossing at a checkpoint who's got a very high fever diva. You can check to see if they've got bowler and then you can trace all the people that they've touched if

Menendez, Netherlands And Fifteen Years discussed on BBC Newshour

"Menendez let's turn to the Netherlands now where the international criminal court has found a Congolese warlord busker and two Ganda guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity judges of the Hague decided that and again it was guilty of all eighteen charges against him including rape murder sexual slavery and the recruitment of child soldiers those charges date back to find two more than fifteen years ago in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo were missed and again the lead an ethnically based militia he had described himself as a soldier and not a criminal well the verdict was read by the presiding judge Robert from the chamber having heard all of the evidence presented by the pot this finds you S. concerns come one guilty of murder this crime against humanity S. concerns come to guilt the of murder as a war crime S. concerns count three guilty of intentionally directing attacks against civilians as a war crime we'll talk to ties back next is a historian of transitional justice at the university of Amsterdam he's been following this case and the work of the ICC first of all what is his reaction to today's verdict we've been waiting very long for his verdict because most going together was charged already in two thousand and six and we only have a verdict in the first instance now in two thousand and nineteen having sense does it is was the ICC's biggest trial so far so it included the most charges the most heinous crimes were committed I'm in two thousand and two and two thousand and three in the jury the Democratic Republic of Congo this is also the fourth conviction since the I CC was established in two thousand and two so we don't have many convictions and so far do seems to be the clearest and also the most convincing one and also it includes crimes that we haven't seen prosecuted before including for instance the rate of child soldiers so is that why this is significant it sends a what what a message that there's an end to impunity or some sort of and to impunity for what happened back then the ice is C. crimes itself off promising that these trials world and violence as we know there is currently violence in the Tory so perhaps it did not materialize in dose respects what it did to do is send a signal to potential offenders that's there is a courts and in investigating units in the Netherlands death continues to monitor what happens on the ground what was he trying to achieve in that part of the Democratic Republic of Congo it's going to go on that goes way back to the one that he was actually an soldier already in the one in pressure fronts in the nineteen nineties and with that army he helped stop the genocide against Tutsis perpetrated in nineteen ninety four and his mission and this is what he said during trial was to protect to see and from nineteen ninety six onwards he basically moved his activities as well to the Congo and he was basically protecting hand my people which are in people closely connected to the to see people and he is always centers he he's a revolutionary he also says that he was fighting against the dictatorships first of Mobutu to enough to to Kabila us and then he basically wanted to establish peace in the region but for most of its protect Tutsis under what point though did his activities from that to actually just power money in control of that region in control of its resources I mean is that is that what happened later on first he was of course a proxy of often won an army in Congo later on when he rose in rank you actually became a general things started to become about control of the region including its minerals their skulls on there's gold basically everything is there and he was a high up not only in the U. B. C. but also in the sea and the pain of movements that arose later under the leadership of loud conduct and as we notice was a proxy forces in one that as well and we also noted they were dare to control minds and also to exploit people he handed him himself in didn't he walked in to the US embassy in Kigali why why did you do that he did it in in March two thousand and thirteen and everybody was surprised he was also the first person to hang himself into the international criminal courts he walked into the US embassy and of course the US is not a supporter of the R. sissy but rumor has it that he fell out with other warlords in a region and also in within his own movements so he wasn't secure and sure anymore does he would actually be a regional leader and many people say now did he it just floats conger and he sold this as his only way out also to survive it's and I think that we're ready for him was a reason to hang himself in most of the time I spent the next two studies transitional justice at the university of

Let's talk it over Michael Bauer. A lot of things on the agenda today. What's the latest? Good morning. We're looking at the president joining the Queen, as well as prime minister of England in Portsmouth England, the launching point for the troops that went off to Normandy, for the day landings on June six. So this is all part of the commemoration of the seventy fifth anniversary of the d day landings on this, the final day of President Trump's, visit, you'll be joined by Theresa May's going to host fifteen world leaders to honor the largest combined land air, and naval operation in history in those figures from every country that fought alongside the UK will be there to make a joint statement, pledging to ensure that the. Horror of World War, Two is not repeated other signing thing called the day proclamation, sixteen signatories, including the UK and US committing to work together to resolve international tensions peacefully, which is sort of a reiteration, if you will, of the standing of NATO, which is an interesting element, because the president has been critical of NATO has been critical of our traditional European allies as well. And yesterday you saw a press conference Theresa May indicate that those NATO allies have been paying up in regards to the volume of money for defense that the president had been asking for and the president seemed to recognize that yesterday as well.

"kabila" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"Himself says his father's legacy guides him. Absurd him on Pat Lam Dijon league, I have. No ambition to be easy call. He is the master. I will try to perpetuate his dream his dream of a state of law of a better, Congo Congo. Where the sons and daughters of this country can be fulfilled. The legitimacy of Chiquita's presidency is in question as downs remain the bounty accuracy of election results. But for now, many even those who didn't vote for him seen to be giving him and the change could represent a chance. The reasons to us reporting from Kinshasa well Joseph Kabila was set the reluctant to give up power his mandate expired two years ago, but he refused to stand down despite nationwide protests. His preferred successor came a poor third in the presidential election, but pro Kabila parties control the national assembly and amid accusations from our town that the election was rigged to allow a power-sharing deal between Mr Kabila, and Mr. Tissa, Katie will mR Kabila now be the power behind this frame. That's a question. I put to a Stephanie voters head of the peace and security research program at South Africa's institute for security studies. Absolutely this outcome is one that allows Kirby led to maintain essentially control over all the key areas. Notably the army and the police as well as the economic sectors in the DRC and the key ministries of defence far. Affair. So there's no question that kepi low will continue to be a significant presence in politics in the Congo. Why will Mr Kabila continue though to have that influence when he doesn't have an elected post because he is first of all going to be a Senator for life in the Senate that is a privilege accorded to former heads of state. He also continues to be the head of his political platform, the FCC, and the FCC has a majority in the national assembly, and it is also garnered the majority of the provincial assembly. We anticipate that the key ministries I will remain in the hands of cubby, the loyalist, and it's also not very easy to dismantle the kind of patronage network that you have in the DRC that has been there for for decades, even under Mobutu, that's not something that anybody could dismantle overnight and certainly not a president in as we position as Felix to security finds himself. Would it be any different though, if Martin fi you had been declared president, well, it would have been diff. If Mata Udu had been declared president as the result of the electoral commission, actually, putting forward the real results of the election. And we could then perhaps also assume that the electoral commission would have put forward the real results of the legislative election. But we know that there were significant irregularities in particular at the counting process of the legislative. So we might have seen a very different outcome in the legislative vote, and that would have given for you perhaps a different kind of setup than the one. That's tshisekedi. Now has there's obviously tremendous expectations among supporters of Mr. Kennedy that his presidency is going to result in change. But from what you're saying that is unlikely I do think it's very unlikely. And I think it is something that, unfortunately, people in the DRC will realize this relatively soon not just to security supporters, but also those who maybe supported a different candidate. But decided that this outcome is better than what was there in the past. They may then realize that this election has in fact, not changed anything at all Mr. Tshisekedi himself. Do you see him serving his full term? I think he can serve his full term. Obviously this arrangement is going to lead to friction. I think fairly quickly.

"kabila" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"Riot police on standby opposition leader, Felix cheeses Kennedy was named as the winner by the constitutional court. Well with me now is ugly to covers west and central Africa at the Economist Intelligence Unit. Thanks much for coming before we discussed the wind. Can you just tell us a little bit about the circumstances under which these elections were held share? So the less term of urges f- Kabila outgoing president's where supposed to end two years ago in two thousand sixteen but that didn't happen because basically. It's Whiteley believed that he was trying to to stay in power. But the brusher domestically and internationally really increase quickly, and he had to announce that he was going to have election, and he announced that petition he will would would run for the for the FCC. So that happened a couple of months ago, we had election in Semper. And we strongly believed cherry will be the the front runner, but at that plan for for caveat to have his potato winning this election in order to protect his interest face difficulties. And this is because we had results on social media media that began became widespread and that was ring clear lead for one of the obsession leader who was. So there were two main opposition leaders facing it was fixed security who has been provisionally the winner of elections. And so that was an expected for the Cadillac camp. They didn't expect such strong support for you. And these these results on social media was carry for them. So they decided to cut into nets, basically. So so that prompted widespread fear that they would manipulate results. One of the turning point was when the Catholic church responded to that. And they basically said that they had observers everywhere in the country forty thousand observers actually, which is massive. And they said that with the results they have they could say who could be the winner of these elections and the Catholic church in the important is really powerful force. So that increased the pressure again regime so over the. The best couple of days. I would say that that there was there were rumors of anew option, and you plan for the Kabila regime, which was to approach chickadee. So that's not official, of course. But that could be the least bad attorney for the Cadillac regime, basically because a presidency with Tshisekedi is more manageable than presidency for you presidency. With Vialli would have come with big risks for the regime, and delete and inner circle of the of Kabila because he's he has been constant in his position to the regime, basically one fixture security. It's a much more manageable alternative in the sense that if he becomes a threat to the Kabila regime or to the his inner circle in way, he's still has an option which is the. The fact that the diploma of security has been announced as maybe a contemplates diploma. So to get has diploma that he passed in Belgium, and I think it was yesterday or two days ago. There was an announcement that the in Brussels that they did not have a record of diploma. So you need a diploma this diploma to be able to run in the elections in the so basically, there's this kind of an ano how say leverage on chicken. So now, we have these provisional results. The problem is that there are big risks. The first one Lou has rejected the results this Kurds Cho's popular like poplar unrests of his supporters, which seems to be a massive. Amount of people. But most importantly is what the Catholic church is going to say now. So as I said, they are a really strong and popular actor in jersey. So yeah, so America has ordered its citizens to leave the country. There's already been so much violence in the lead up to this poll, and so many cases of fraud. Anyway, do you sit and riot police were on standby full? This announcement is violence likely. I mean, you talking about the supporters of fairly that's apparently around six point four million people potentially very explosive situation. Finance is likely. You're right. I mean. When when you have an election with such a week, and fraudulent a process, it just likes credibility. And when you have a process that lacks credibility opens the way to a rejection of the results, and therefore protests, and and this if it's the case will be met with harsh crackdown spot.

Delayed Congo poll offers slim hope for change

"Elections on Sunday were set to herald the country's first transition of power by the ballot box with President Joseph Kabila stepping down after seventeen years in office. But an explosion of violence has caused the polls to be postponed. All the Ryan discusses what happened and why it matters with the F T Africa editor David pilling. David how much violence has been in the run-up to the polls and who's behind it wouldn't immediate run up to this election. There's been a gradual build up a violence. A number of opposition rallies have been broken up by security forces. There have been people shot dead and numbers a quite hard to come by. There was a rally there was supposed to have taken place earlier this week in Concetta by the opposition leading candidate Martin for you, which was broken up by tear gas, in fact, never took place, but one has to go even further back because this election is really been rumbling on for years. It was meant to have taken place in two thousand and sixteen and if you count the election violence, the protests against the election, not taking place and the authorities reaction to that. Then there have been dozens indeed hundreds of deaths that this election has already been responsible for as to who takes blame for this violence. A lot of it is security forces of the. Administration of the state, which is really not permitted opposition rallies, which has overreacted to demonstrations people being very frustrated at the slow pace of these elections. And now, of course, the further postponing of the poll from Sunday because that postponement is not only because of this violence is also an Ebola outbreak in the east of the country. There's voting machines which went up in flames allegedly anyway, and the electoral commission has used this as somewhat say an excuse or pretext to push the elections out a further week until December the thirtieth who are the main candidates in. What are the prospects? There are really three candidates. First of all, you have a man code Emmanuel shoddy who is running really as the proxy of Joseph Kabila, the man who's been in power for seventeen years his prospects. Most observers of Congo thing that he will win by hook. Oh by crook because the regime that's been. Power wants him to win and Kabila has shown no sign of really wanting to relinquish power. And that this is his chance to hold onto power by using what the Congolese are calling a dolphin. The opposition had briefly United on the one candidate Martin for ULA who's an oil executive who has the backing of two other politicians who would have run for the presidency. But for one reason or another worthy not allowed into the country or not allowed to run those struck down by a constitutional court. So in a sense, he's also a proxy for them. Unfortunately for the opposition the opposition split just a couple of days after agreeing to put up a United candidates, and there's another candidate called Phoenix Tshisekedi who represents in a sense, his father who for years and years and years was the official opposition who ran against not only Kabila, but Joseph Kabila's father, Lauren Kabila and bef-. For him even against Mabuza cisa cycle. He died before this election was able to take place. And so now Felix who has really the name recognition is also running can you tell us a little bit more let Mr. Sharara, then what kind of person is he well, he's not very well known in the country. He was the interior minister. And he was the interior minister at a period of some volatility when there were demonstrations in the streets of Kinshasa, December two thousand sixteen that was the first time that does Kabila at effectively refused to hold an election as he ought to have done because the constitution dictated that. And then the Kasai region also erupted into violence, and there was a very brutal security crackdown as a result of that should Dary is now the subject of European sanctions. Because inefficient he's been blamed as the head of the interior ministry for these crackdowns, which involve many, many deaths apart from that he is thought to be very loyal to Kabila. That's why Kabila chose him. The assumption is that he will do Kabila's bidding, what's at stake in this election. Why is it so important? Well, the DRC the Democratic Republic of Congo is a huge nation in the center of Africa in the Great Lakes region. It's a nearly European sized nation covered in rainforest. Very poor communications it can be impossible to get from one part of the country to another. They're very few roads. But what it does have is huge minora resources, for example, cobalt which is needed for a mobile phones, and which is needed for electric car batteries and really the green revolution. That were also expectantly awaiting in the west is really cannot happen without the resources pouring out of conga, but congress has been very poorly run to put it mildly. It's a state in a kind of near state of collapse. The somehow been held together by Joseph Kabila sort of patched together. So who runs this country? It is important for the outside world. And I would argue more importantly is very important for eighty million Congolese who despite sitting on all this huge wealth have been so poorly governed there among the poorest people in Africa with really terrible statistics. If you look at the health statistics life expectancy to disticts access to education access to hospitals and access to anything. They've really been let down by leadership has acted more as a kind of an extractive leadership to extract wealth from them than as a leadership. That's really there to serve them. So the hope for anyone is that at the very least Joseph Kabila who has been in power for seventeen years has agreed to step down. And although he is certainly trying to control the situation via his proxy, Emmanuel Chaudhary, maybe it'll get out of hand. Maybe he won't be able to control the system, and may be this in this, very messy difficult complicated. Way is one step towards a more Representative damore. Crecy given the way that you described Congo and electro system, there is this really likely to be a free election. Who's monitoring the poll it's not like to be free election tool. It's being monitored by civil society by the Catholic church by the African Union, but that doesn't have a great record in calling out elections and decisively saying that election has been stolen the expectation is that as long as the violence is not egregious as long as the theft of the poll is not obvious, then they'll be enough constituents, even including western diplomats and western representatives who will say look look stability of this country is more important than plunging it into a kind of post electoral crisis. So the expectation is that even if the process is as unfair as many people expect it to be that somehow enough people turn a blind is who it and the country. Will stumble on citizens effectively looked like the status quo continue with Mr Kabila remaining in power behind the same. That's what I think is not exactly the status quo because once you've stepped down you stepped down the president of the country. Does have a lot of constitutional powers should area said to be an absolute stalwart of Joseph Kabila. But who knows we've seen in neighboring Angola? When president does Santos gave up power after I think, it was thirty seven years in office and chose his successor gel. Lorenzo suddenly, and so has turned on the dos Angeles family as clamped down on a lot of the structures that had been set up over the previous nearly four decades, and we're seeing real change there. So I think once you relinquish the levers of power, you may try to hold onto them, and you may be successful in doing that. But we don't know what about the people on the street. Do you think they accept the result of medical Bilas choice whims? I think some will. But they'll be whole areas that weren't Kinshasa is an opposition stronghold. They've never liked Kabila who kind of holds up in the presidential palace playing. Jio games and on his farm driving around in his motorbike, very rarely appears in public even when the country descends into its near perennial crises. He's a kind of an invisible figure in the capital. And there are a whole other regions is the Kasai region, which is a huge region in the center of the country, which certainly belongs to the opposition then going to happily accept Kabila's nomination being elected. And then there's the whole east of the country a thousand miles away from Kinshasa very hard to reach the only way you can reach. It really is by plane or by boat along the Congo river. Maybe by motorbike all the way across the country. There you have minora resources, you have dozens and dozens of militia groups rebels. It's a very volatile part of the country and part of the world. And who knows what they're going to make this election. You've talked a lot about Congo's vast wealth. What do you think businesses will be heading for from this election? I think businesses really hope for some measure of style. Ability. I mean, there's a lot of rhetoric about paying tax in about being there for the good of the Congolese people about adding to the Congolese, national wealth. But if you look at the history of the Congo right from the time when it was the property of king Leopold than a Belgian colony and then in the post, colonial period, it really is a story of exploitation where these kind of minerals wealth rubber before that pours out of this vast country. But almost everybody in the country is left impoverished. Thank you very
