Nancy son and she and i had a pretty extensive conversation About a person did. I didn't name who had experienced a stroke and i was just kind of pushing her a bit to say well. How would you apply some of your coaching techniques to help people get past. Self cancelling self critical thinking. How would you apply to someone. Were they actually have had a physical injury happened to them and it's not something they can think away. I was already looking forward to actually having that unnamed person on soon after i posted the episode with coach. Nancy and so my guest today is that person. He's a former parishioner of the church. That i pastor for many decades he continues to be a friend and he is also a listener to this podcast and his name is toby so toby i want to welcome you to the podcast. Hello everybody had pastoral. Care is to call your pastor. Kent surrey oh habby you keep blowing my cover listener. First-time caller yeah. Yeah well you know. Did you ever think that you would be actually one of the guests one day. I was hoping yes but now hundreds of kind of circumstance which is very special for today. Well before we get into what happened to you. Tell our listeners. What your business was what you all about. Because you're one of the top people in your field of. What was that all about. I was ruining my mic production company. Doing visual effects and documentary film work for various corporations like entertainment and business and also nonprofit international ministries travelling to different parts of the world to document a workout. they're missionaries. Yeah that was happening near the end of this working. Part of your your life right. And and i was reading your facebook posts and you're pretty pumped you're saying if you had to do your career over again. You would love to do this. Because you're hanging out with people that were your now heroes and and getting to share their their work with the world yes. I think you're definitely one of the most influential person in that part of the journey. 'cause you even your servants seriously talk about joseph campbell and hero's journey storytelling technique. The very inspiring. So i wanna be a story town of himself by either doing social worker documents documentary work. Well you certainly excelled at that. I remember the excitement of the missionaries that were in dr congo. When you went over there with the team within pastor sharon and they'd never had anyone document with video of the work that they were doing out in the bush but also in the kinshasa in the city with the women at risk right. Yeah one of the most memorable shots that you took that. I think they were astounded. By was in you. Use your drone technique and you had the team going down that that big river in the congo and the jungle but you have to aerial view. That was amazing. That's fun yeah so you had just completed a trip. To thailand i think it was with international ministries doing similar work capturing for promotional purposes. The work of these missionaries and and they're doing a lot of social justice work. How would you feel about that well. That's very interesting. As i was in my filming to work of missionary kimbro. She ran the clinic for children with developmental diseases. Very moving to you. Yeah the provide like were down syndrome or learning disability physical therapy speech therapy and then you finish your work and you flew back home to culver city out out here right. The westside of los angeles pick up the story as it changed for you then will flew back. The next morning woke up too skinny ready to drive my son to school. I was still able to walk and drive those feeding kind of funny like little bit. Dizzy nosso weakness. When i came home. That's when it happened stroke. Yeah so when you were starting to feel funny. Did you have any thoughts. I wonder if. I'm having a stroke. Did that even enter your mind now than ever enter my mind though idea. Did you think it was maybe after effects of all this international travel. Maybe you cut a bug in thailand. Something like that. Will there a couple of little funny stories that can tell you about that. Yeah first of all the symptoms are just feel left we miss and what does that mean. Mike host left side of body feel very heavy like i was actually sitting on a toilet. Sorry maybe too much information. No i feel like. I'm i was going to fall off the toilet. I did end up falling off the toy onto the floor was able to push myself up. The funny thing is i was still able to walk
The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola
"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it

know what that that's a real commitment on my end because I really believe I should have quality ingredients in my products I don't think you should have a PhD in chemistry to read my labels I believe in butter flour sugar eggs yeah I think if we have good ingredients that go into the product we have a great product and then we feel good afterwards I think a lot of the times of people take short cuts because they want to have a fast monetary gain but people don't support those kind of places so I think it's very important that people that come to delightful pastries say we have Nielsen Massey vanilla which is the best vanilla in all of United States made right here in Waukegan by this wonderful family for three generations now so it's and you know we use all butter from Wisconsin thank you Wisconsin you know my flowers from Ohio and from Minnesota you know just a lot of local ingredients a lot of great ingredients I just think you know butter should be the foundation of an fresh eggs

that would put lemon oil in the W's milk we use barter and you know when you eat upon check in with you know like a Krispy Kreme donut it flattens into pancake yeah well up upon check the dough springs back and holds itself yet yeah and you really did it for the dough mostly you don't really you did for the filling like American donuts have this much filling in and it's just like you can really taste the dough and that's kind of sad because the the the beauty of it is the doe how delicious how delicate you know it's fluffy it's crunch on the outside deliciously moist and goodness on the inside and I love coming up with wonderful tart fillings like Weezer long potter we use nice I make passion fruit jam is a thing that's a Polish thing hello Mister he's thing I grew up with yeah Tom is a Polish thing we love our heart to heart fillings pulls people do not like sweet pastries we you know when we post people come and I'm there like I wanna see desert that's not sweet enough that's the first thing that comes out of the mouth and yet we believe in having something rich pottery full of group Belgian chocolate and walnuts and nuts and lots of beers in a post poll should point towards you know like there's one walnut poppy toward that I make that I literally one liter of vodka goes into the entire thing while because it's that busy but then it has to sit for four days before you can eat it so all that lot of that stuff veterans but the flavor is still there so lot of Polish pastries like our have tons and tons of alcohol and actually European pastries have tons and tons sure think of tiramisu think about fruit fruit cake think of a Kinshasa toward a black forest torte absolutely all have you know somebody said oh you're just you're just you know to contributing to the delinquency of minors I first of all if you don't want rid of them in one day that's pretty when you're cooking the stuff it yeah the potency is is gone by that time now there's you've got the traditional but you've also got some really cool gourmet flavors as well let's talk about some of the traditional ones that you have so the traditional ones are plum butter which we've mentioned before Polish people are crazy about plan which I'm not a guy that brings food and booze into the studio because listeners can't see they can't taste what what I'm doing in here but I will describe this the best they can and you were so kind to bring daughters your big highlight that's that's that's my favorite then rose petal jelly that's very very traditional very Polish and we use real raspberry preserves a local company here that makes the boss raspberry preserves there's just sugar packed in lemon juice and raspberries and if nothing else that plan has a beautiful flavor you know it's a great little tart but I'm I'm chasing sweet because of what you put into the dough surrounding it so I'm getting a little bit of both it is coming in and out that's really cool thank you thank we we try really hard and then some of the other it's nice and tight is good yeah yeah it's it's you know it's it's that's the whole point about plans you kind of want to make the jam kind of to

his front stop and he's it's are you the guy looking for moonshiners like yeah he brings out this carton of more of these Mason jars full of money it is like a hundred Bucks the drop that often like drives right off like it was it was like a transaction and have a little remote brings it back you say's Dover I found your moon shine so I said what flavor it would be really good for punchy with

The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola
"Safai here with none other than NPR east. Africa correspondent eight Peralta to. Hey there ater. Hey mattie thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled but I want to open with a quick question who discovered Ebola and Google. It first of all. How dare you asked me a a question? I should definitely know the answer to and don't and yeah I already. Google bet came up was a Belgian. Microbiologist I but I think you're about to tell me there's more to the story there absolutely there always is right so I mean you cheated. Yeah what you probably saw is a bunch of White Westerners like Dr John Jack. Mugambi does not. Yeah he was not one of the people that came up yes so he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo. But back in nineteen seventy six. We we emberg he was the first doctor to collect any bola sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote. A lot of history has been written without your name. Yes but you on this Yes it is it not correct did not quite so today on the show correcting the record on a bola the story of Dr John Jock Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing its future to some in the medical community. It's a controversial move. Okay ater so we're talking talking about a Congolese Dr Jacques in his role in discovering Abullah. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa south he said we should start in nineteen seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD in microbiology at the Institute in Belgium and and he could have stayed in Europe but he decided to come back to Congo. But when I arrive here The condition of work were not I. I had no lab. I have no mice for experimentation so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah it's tough to do lab work without a lab you now. He said without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen nineteen seventy six we sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak It's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola. But no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever and he goes to this local hospital but he says he finds it completely empty was nobody there. Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and and people had died there but in the morning when they heard was sent from capitol. They thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital and we started seeing patients. So so what's he seeing. When the patients come in he was seeing people who were very weak with fever they had headaches? I started it to him to make the physical time but at that time. have no gloves you know gloves. And of course he had to draw blood but when I removed they're the city which Blood continued to spread out. It was the first time from two CDs momentum and also my fingers so with a bow. Wow Yeah so he says he he would wash his hands a lot but really really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on and he was able to not get it and at this point we MP. He was startled but then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village also got sick with a fever all the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point I was like. Oh it's probably not those things. Thanks yeah I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different. So he convinced one none to go back to Kinshasa with him so what happens next. She died at a hospital a couple of days later but he took blood samples and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end. That was Peter. Piot who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium. Aw The guy who turned up from Google Search. Yeah that's right. And so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit the CDC in the US US gets involved and they realize this is a new virus that caused hemorragic

Africa And Seventy Percent discussed on All Things Considered
"Let's go now to the center of Africa to a place we rarely hear from Goma is a sprawling border city of two million in Democratic Republic of Congo it's trying to keep at bay what's become the second largest Ebola outbreak in history and Paris either Peralta is they're welcome hater hello Sir give us some context here because I understand this Ebola outbreak has basically remained in two provinces in Congo at least up until now but it's clearly spreading to Goma there been four cases what is gonna doing take to keep Ebola from spreading even further well lots and that's really important because this is a major transit hub and you notice it as soon as you land before coming into the airport you're asked to wash your hands with the bleach water solution and the nurse will take your temperature restaurants banks cellphone shops the squeeze hand sanitizer as you walk in and this is a country where three kisses are the norm and people are taking precautions they're giving what is known as the a bold look reading which means you tap your elbows to say hello and shaking hands are giving kisses and of course health authorities have vaccinated more than one thousand people in this city who they believe may have come in contact with the fires and I understand it to the people who survived the virus single member treated with new drugs what are these new drugs can tell us anything about them yeah I mean this is huge they are the first time that scientists have identified clearly effective treatments for people who have Ebola and these are two regiments which help the immune system fights the virus in the were in trials down here in Congo they were able to save about seventy percent of the people who were given the treatment you mentioned that health workers are trying to vaccinate more people but since Ebola was detected in Congo last year there has been difficulty getting more and more people vaccinated why that is in security there are more than one hundred armed groups in this part of Congo any bowler respond there's have been attacked and that is fueled by a lot of mistrust and conspiracy theories that westerners and the government have created Ebola to try and kill people here in in in Congo so how concerned do people seem in Goma right now about these most recent cases the whole tone is feeling the effects you can't move without seeing medical trucks and tents but I was in the neighborhood today were people they have set up roadblocks because one of their neighbors had been robbed in two of that neighbors children had been shot by police and they kept telling you look so much money is being poured into a bowl up but nothing is being done about the everyday skin security that we face I spoke to Fidel Buffy Limbaugh an activist here and he thinks this simple outbreak offers the chance for the world to look at how it has continually filled Congo one of the things that he points at is that the U. N. has its biggest peacekeeping mission in the world here and yet Congolese are still being killed all the time let's listen to a bit of what he told me I think we had come to a point where we realize in very high poultry see racism Hey true way of from the western wall to become less people this has been so since the first ever raw white man's cities sleeps on the Congress soil and it's never too people here in Goma they feel abandoned they have been betrayed again and again not just by their government in Kinshasa but by the world so she doesn't blame them for thinking that the people trying to help with the beloved are actually trying to
New emergency Ebola response chief in DR Congo promises more listening, to end frequent interruptions in fightback
"Newly appointed UN Ebola response chief in the Democratic Republic of the Congo DRC has promised to listen more to the fears and concerns of local people in a bid to end frequent interruptions, hampering the fight against the deadly virus response coordinator, David Gresley, who's also deputy, head of u n stabilization mission in the DRC Manisco told you a news that violence by numerous armed groups protests and demonstrations together with political mistrust had adversely affected the government and World Health Organization, led response, one thousand two hundred eighty died in the country's worst ever outbreak. Mr. Gresley is heading to the epicenter pretend bow to work closely with partners and local leaders to finally contain the outbreak. He spoke to you and uses Christina Silveira, it's a very serious situation on the ground were quite worried about the situation is continued for now. Ten months in terms of the response. But the democ has been circulating for over a year now. And one of the key problems that we've seen on the ground is that there have been frequent interruptions in the response, which gives a virus a chance to multiply and usually tend to days to two weeks later. We see a sharp increase after these interruptions, due to sometimes protests, sometimes attacks, physical attacks and demonstrations, override things that have disrupted the the response, and it's important to understand why the, the attacks are happening. Why protests are happening at cetera so that we can find a way to sustain a response in a way that it's not interrupted. And so that we can bring it to, to, to close. The virus doesn't care. We cannot just use a technical approach to the response to be eight show, a ministry of health in particular have the skills for that. They have the means on the ground for that. But it's not enough by itself. And you need a larger response, they deals with the issues that I've described of security, and resistance. If you're going to finally put an end to this epidemic. So B U N has announced that it's strengthening its operations and its strategy. You've been appointed coordinator for the urgent response against Bola. What are the changes that are going to be made on the ground? Is it just a merely of positions? No, that's not the intent at all the, the, the intent is to strengthen the broader support the technical response led by the ministry of health supported by WHO will certainly continue. But what will be put in place is a reinforced structure that will be looking at the security issues, the resistance issues more closely, and that will require a much closer work with a local population. He'll communities traditional leaders to understand where their concerns are why there might be resistance and build the confidence of the community and the support most importantly, so that we can create an environment allows the responders to do their job. And to bring this thing to an end. It's also a question of, of making sure that the people who may have been in contact with victims of, of Ebola are dente, fide and monitored in terms of their own health, and if they become ill that they can receive treatment that's, that's the key to actually breaking the transmission of Ebola. But when that is disrupted, and are those the and that tracking is lost, then the virus will continue to circulate we're fortunate that. It has not gone outside of the immediate area. It's not even covering the whole province. And I think there we have to think the very good efforts for vaccination has gone on that has helped contain it amongst some of the changes, you will be moving the decision making center, the operation center to Timbo the current epicenter, we will be moving the operational decision making to the center of the. Can timbo? I will go there myself, we will build a team around that to reinforce the team that are already there. There are senior UN and, and, and, and ministry of health personnel to ground already. I think we have to recognize that. So this is a compliment to what's already there, but was important is that we have rapid decision making on the ground that's not held up by bureaucracies of various organizations. And that's why the decision was taken to put senior leisurely ground who can take those decisions based upon what they see on a day-to-day basis strategic guidance will stay in concerto regional operations will be based in Goma that does not change, but the day to day response, and the, the adapting to each circumstances, that arise can only be done locally. What are you expecting these changes to mean on the ground concrete concretely for the population for the health workers? And for the attackers, obviously, we wanted to bring the Potomac to close as quickly as possible. But in order to do that. I think what the local community should expect is a much closer engagement on our part with them to understand their fears their expectations to provide clear information about how the epidemic is how it spreads. And how it can be treated and contained these are all extremely important that, that work be accelerated on the ground to, to build that confidence lifting. It'd be listening to the population. That's it. That is exactly it you have to listen to the population. They have to tell us what they're thinking. That's what that engagement means. You don't learn much by talking. You'll learn by by listening. So I think that's extremely important. I think people have been frustrated by the lack of, of being listened to, and, and it's important to overcome that. So that's extremely important. Do you have an idea of what is going on? Why there is so much mistrust, the situation. There is a bit complex of there's been conflict going on. For over twenty years. It's an area of political opposition, historically to, to the government in Incan Shasha. So there's a bit of a version of people coming in from the outside. Secondly, you, you when you see a situation where you have a massive response for one, one issue in this case of Bulla where other issues have been neglected for twenty years, people, ask questions, it's just a natural human thing. And that's some of the things that need to be talked through, and there may be -tunities to address other issues while addressing the ability issue talking about the issue of tax when there's a strong community acceptance and, and, and actual desire for something that, too can help on the security side. He started getting it from. Nation that tells you what, what may or may not happen, and how you may want to operate when that positive relationship is established. And as you as you rightly said earlier, you do that by listening to what people are thinking and feeling then you have the basis to move forward and constructive way. So we need to do this, it takes its own time to do this. We don't have a lot of times we have to find a way to structure that in, in an effective way and have an open door policy that allows that information and that exchange to take place as frequently as required for this to be resolved. You mentioned demonstrations before and political climate, which is usually contentious, or seize Kinshasa as other this area wasn't allowed to participate in the recent elections. Is that that is well they were able to, but only after the three months too late and. And that was a problem because when the announcement was made for the delay in the election in, in, in this in the territories around Binion boot Timbo, it was the reason cited by the, the electoral commission was the -able outbreak, which created a perception that bring me this as a political issue, and not a health issue those relations have now taken place. So that's less of an issue today. But that's only happened at the end of March. So that time period between did create that that perception, and it was unfortunate because I think it contributed to some of the delays and interruptions described.
Violence rife as Congo Ebola outbreak surges
"The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has reached a new record more than a thousand people have died since the outbreak began in August. There's been widespread community mistrust violence against healthcare workers by armed rebel glue. Br armed rebel groups. Do we know how that outbreak began back in August? Yes. The outbreak began with a single woman who had a funeral. She died of the abo- virus. Her funeral was held in a very small village called Mandela from there. It spread to a large town of about a quarter million people called Benny, it has since shifted south to to sort of twin cities that collectively have nearly a million residents, and this is a very transient region. And this is this is why this virus is spread across the area. It's a place where people commonly trade not only between villages and between sort of regional hubs. But also across international borders this region in the. Democratic Republic of the Congo borders. Uganda Rwanda, south Sudan all places that are susceptible to abolish itself. Why are armed groups attacking the healthcare worker? So this is a an area that has been beset by tribal violence and ethnic strife for decades, if not centuries, and they are very disconnected from the federal government in Kinshasa, the the they don't trust outsiders, basically because they are more connected to their own local tribal units than they are to anybody else. And the what we've seen in recent days is an increase in the mistrust between the communities that are suffering from the Abella virus, and these outsiders who are coming in trying to help them. You can imagine that. It's probably pretty scary. If somebody shows up in a spacesuit talking about a virus, you've never heard of him, by the way, you can't see with a needle that they want to inject you with with vaccine if you trust them that is that that's something that can stop an outbreak. But a lot of people don't trust outsiders, especially not those who come in in. Scary looking spacesuit. So based on what these outsiders are doing an offering if in fact, they're doing enough and offering enough we looking more in a best case scenario or a worst case scenario for this outbreak. This is getting closer to the worst case scenario, and that worst case scenario is one in which the virus becomes endemic to the region and continues to spread without hope of actually stopping the outbreak. We've never seen that happen in the past even in the west Africa outbreak few years ago, you know, more than twenty eight thousand people were infected more than eleven thousand died, but the good news is the virus was stopped in in west Africa. We haven't gotten to that scale yet in Congo. But this is an area that presents basically, the most difficult operating environment that public health responders have ever had to deal
"kinshasa" Discussed on 90.3 KAZU
"Addis Ababa. Six months since the latest outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo broke out have been something like seven hundred confirmed cases, making it the second largest outbreak in history response efforts continue to be hampered by insecurity and community resistance from the capital Kinshasa, the BBC's guys Cohen any joins us live six months in and given the previous outbreaks in the I in recent years have been contained very quickly. Are people starting to be quite concerned about this one? Well, it depends on who we are talking to and where these people are for example in the Benue region Benny and timber region word able outbreak is rather Jing some people don't believe that Ebola Israel, some of them believe that it's some sort of come for the government to to to get money from the international community or its partners. Or maybe they think it's a political thing that is done to to to prevent them from injuring their political rights, however in other parts of the world country. They take you seriously, and people are worried you will see for example, some offices. They have places where someone can go and wash their hands before you get in in many places. Now, they're taking temperature of people to check if they have Ebola or not. So it is taken seriously, but some members of the community in Benny and Bhutan. They don't believe that people as real. And the difficulty was that Secaucus is the the the difficult areas to operate because of rebel groups in in and around Benny. And so on it's not that easy to go out is it to certain places and convince people that yes voter is real. It's not that easy. Really to know. How many people have got the disease? It's it's not really easy, for example in in bay in timbale. NBC actually, some members of their of their response team have been attacked by community people who thought that oh these guys just coming to joke with us and not do anything. Right. They have been attacked. So there's a lot of work now being involved being put into sensitizing people. But also in rebel areas. It's quite hard to send people we know that they may be kidnapped by armed dribbles. So it's making things hard for the response team. Usually in cases, like these local officials foreign aid groups, and so on say that they're not getting the resources, they need they need greater resources. Let's say to deal with an outbreak on this scale is that the case here as well. So far, we have inherited the ministry of health or even the other members of the response team complain about resources, so far the two things they're complaining about is community resistance, and and insecurity and. That's those are only the two things we've had them complain about. But not really about finances. But the scale of the outbreaks about four hundred and fifty people dead. I mean, that's pretty shocking, isn't it? It is it is. And it's the most devastating actually outbreak. We've had in DRC dear democratic probably go ahead and had ten outbreaks since nineteen seventy six, and this is the most devastating one. Of course, if you look at this level rate, for example, you we see thirty seven percent is not the lowest survival rate. But the thing is fifty seven percent of seven hundred you have more people dead done sixty three percent of thirty five for example. So you can see that it is the most devastating guys reporting to his life from Kinshasa capsule, the Democratic Republic of Congo. You're listening to news stay on the BBC World Service with adding Kasuga in Addis Ababa James cardinal in London. Our main story right now the United States says it's prepared to make concessions to secure the denuclearization of Korean peninsula. But it's still demanding that North Korea's food. Details of its nuclear arsenal. And now with the latest sports news. Matthew kenyon. Good morning. Good morning to you. We're going to talk about the Asian Cup final. It's Japan against Qatar in the UAE in a few hours time, but it's just under twenty four hours since the Asian football. Confederation confirmed that they'd been an official complaint from the host nation about the eligibility of two players who seem certain to feature in that final few as time and we've still had no word from the authorities. Remember Qatar knocked out the UA in the semifinal with thumping four nil victory. Let's talk to the BBC's many jazz may who's been covering the turnament throughout many. What is the latest on? This say we haven't heard anything official was the last thing that we had simply confirmation of that complaint. Yes, I'm getting nothing from the AFC. They the tone of the messages back to me AS Roma's rather exhaust me asking the same questions all the time. I understand that the categories are calm about this. It's all it's all speculation. What the AFC disciplinary an ethics code says is that if a team fails United enjoyable player, then they will forfeit that the matching which they filled it them if they dean to fielded them after competition, then they could be suspended for the next day AFC competition. So the US is a last gasp effort by them to try and get into the final. But the trouble is, of course, that Catta have beaten six teams already with both of these players in in almost every every match and the the question is the nationality eligibility both of these players were born abroad. There's no question about that. But my understanding is that they registered with the AFC on the basis that their mothers were born in Qatar. And that is the point of dispute. You a website has published documents which it says proves that they were born in Iraq and Sudan respectively. But it's it's unclear we still don't know what the AFC we'll do about his appeal. We'll wait and say as I say only a few as till the final Ashim he catchall make you onto the pitch later on today. Many you would expect would you not Japan to come out winners the softening? Well, I don't think it's a foregone conclusion not at all. I mean, Japan, far less impressive and cata. They peaked superbly in the semifinal after being very scratchy in the early stages, but cats have the leading goalscorer who's one of these plays alley. They haven't conceded. A single goal yet. They have the leading assist provider all of the stats are in that favor. And they will ready beaten three previous champions on the way to the final. Where they'll meet a force fantastic. Many. Jasmine, however, it pans out of the failed on the failed. Manny will be keeping us up to date later on. Here on the BBC sport today is on your radio nine hundred thousand thirty GMT and world football presented by Manny is available now at BBC World, Service dot com. A couple of other football lines for you. In fact, it's almost all football this morning on the pitch carrying Benjamin scored twice to move up to six in rail Madrid all time top goalscorers list, his Girona to reach the Coppa del Rey. Semifinals in h Lee last year beat into Milan they needed a penalty.

They beat local rivals here clippers one hundred and twenty three to one hundred and twenty after overtime. Lebron afterwards called it the toughest stretch of his career Natalie. Thank you. Now we used to hearing. That Russia is trying to influence world events on social media. Now, it's there on Facebook is closed down nearly eight hundred pages and the number of groups and accounts apparently linked to Iran that describing them as inauthentic accounts aimed at influencing opinion in more than twenty countries. So as Facebook now taking tougher action against those believed to deliberately use it to influence elections or undermine democracy. Cybersecurity expert and the presence of secure mental and also author of advanced persistent security, IRA Winkler told me more what Facebook has done has been deleted accounts that have been tied to Iranian actors. And what these accounts have done was to space simulate create fake news sites that have been purported to put out real news. But really they were putting out prop Iranian propaganda along the lines of Russia, say or. The accusation against Russia and Russian linked organizations is they're very actively trying to change elections. For example, is not the case here was this more just pushing an Iranian view on the world. I think it's a little bit of both a lot of the propaganda, frankly is anti Donald Trump because Donald Trump has been going against the US intelligence services on his own, for example, and saying that Iran is still attempting to produce nuclear weapons, which was the exact opposite conclusion of the intelligence community. So they've been kind of focusing on that type of information simultaneously. They also want to change public perception of Iran as not necessarily an enemy of the United States. They also put out pro Palestinian propaganda as well as any of the other interests in the Middle East that they've been trying to push for their own interests in the region. So. All of that sounds like depending on your political perspective true, but not necessarily. Illegal or immoral to try and put those views out there. What what then was the specific problem with the accounts pretending to be something. They weren't. That's exactly the problem. They were pretending to be legitimate local news sources within the United States, like every, you know, every city of any size in the United States tends to have a television station, a radio station or something, and they and a lot of people trust the local stations more than they might trust like an international or national station like the equivalent of a BBC, and they think that the local news is more real than national news. So they try to give that fake impression that their local news is recording these incidents, like it's a fact frankly, either way, whether it's a legal or not these people are pretending to be somebody else on the internet and they're doing so four not good reasons..
Congo election postponed for one week amid political turmoil
"Underground, the Democratic Republic of Congo electoral authority has postponed Sunday's election. By a week. Already two years overdue and extends president Joseph Kabila's nearly eighteen year rule. The announcement triggered clashes in the capital Kinshasa between the police and supporters of one of the two main opposition presidential
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

It was the US Justice department and asked the judge to decide the case in its favor before trial. Now, the Trump administration has maintained that the question is needed to help enforce laws on voting rights, but documents show that it was the US commerce secretary, not the Justice department who had requested the question months earlier. Judge Richard seaboard ruled on Friday that the state had presented enough evidence to support its thirty to challenge the plan. And there was what he called a material dispute of fact over whether the question would affect the final population count. Now the state.

And that's the latest BBC news. This is from our own correspondent here on the BBC World Service. I'm PASCAL harder. Hello and welcome to the program that takes you to places others. Just don't reach in this edition. We've visit an elegant well established face of Catalan politics now behind bars and facing charges of rebellion. We also take a trip on a wooden canoe to see how the Democratic Republic of Congo is preparing for elections next weekend and for some lighthearted fun. We'll go axe throwing in Canada. Larry, apparently, it's a thing sweeping the nation. But our first stop is Iraq to meet some extraordinary women. There have been protests in Iraq recently calling on perpetrators of violence against women to be punished and calling for the state to create the conditions in which women can go about their lives without fear. This is partly as a result of some recent high profile killings. An Iraqi social media star was murdered by men on motorbikes in broad daylight in the center of Baghdad a female human rights activists was shot dead in Basra. But it's also in protest at scores of Iraqi women being murdered every month the justification that they were being immoral disobeying. Their husbands all bringing disgrace to their families shaima halio met some women willing to risk their own lives to protect other women and girls from this violence Doma is one of Iraq's most famous dishes. It's also one of my favorites. It reminds me. Of the stuffed vegetables. I eat back home in Egypt where I grew up, but it's much spicier Bessemer is a bit of an expert on Doma and during the last seven years, she's taken to cooking as a hobby, and as a coping mechanism takes my mind off things she tells me as she peels the onions, all my fear, my anxiety, my sadness. I turn this energy into cooking. Vessel lives with seven other women in a big modestly. Furnished home in a quite Baghdad neighborhood. Some of them are helping in the kitchen cutting vegetables, and washing rice, others, sit in a corner sorting beads to make bracelets necklaces a couple of children are running around. But this busy household filled with noise and laughter and the smell of home cooked meals is also a secret shelter for women who've survived domestic abuse. You're not Mohammed has agreed to show me around. But only after a lot of negotiation. She's the president of the organization of. Women's freedom in Iraq, an NGO which runs ten underground shelters. Only my producer a woman, of course, an I are allowed to visit. And we have to change cars on route to avoid being followed. The government refuses to give the shelters official status and can read them any time if they find them, but that's not the only threat in our in her organization face we shelter women from honor killing from trafficking and from abusive families. She tells me the shelters have to be secret because the abusers will follow the women and tried to kidnap them from us or even kill them. When I asked Basma why she's here her mood changes. And she tilts her head down. I was thirteen playing in the streets. When he took me dress me up and told me I was going to another house to get married. She says, I didn't know what was happening. I thought we were just visiting someone that I would come home the next day for the next three years. Best male was repeat. Tiddly abused by the man, she was forced to marry and by his family, then her story gets even more horrendous and surreal a man spotted her in the market one day and kidnapped her he said he was in love with me. And he was going to take me away from my husband's family. She says looking at the floor fidgeting with her bracelet. But her kidnappers father refused to keep her and best male was sent far away to a brothel in Iraqi Kurdistan. When I realized what was happening. I beg the women there to spare me she says. I couldn't do what they were asking me to do. I told them L beg on the streets. But not this. They let her go best managed to get a job in a cafe nearby. And after a few months, it's owner helped her get back to back debt to her family to safety or so she thought they said I had dishonoured them because I'd left my husband, and they didn't know what the other man had done with me. That's my says, I was just there. Waiting listening to their conversations about my fate. Even when I fought. My father's soften a little the men from our tribe would pressure him and say you have to kill her. It's the only way so one day with the help of a friend. I ran away. She says she was only sixteen seven years on best must still in hiding. But she now runs the shelter. She calls home. Yes. Of course. I get scared. She admits we're on the same boat here. That's why I helped them I have to protect them. You're not Mohammed tells me that across Iraq are fifty two women living in the NGOs shelters just a tiny fraction of those in need of help. She looks at her phone and shows me a message from a woman in muscle. If you don't get here soon. It says I'll be dead despite the challenges are remains optimistic and is proud of the women. She's helped many of whom have gone on to help other victims of violence, but best Ma is less. Hopeful she tells me she's come a long way she's married with two young daughters. I fear for them every single day. I don't want them to go through what I went through. All I wanted was to normal child. I asked about her girls futures. My biggest hope is that they leave. She says that they grow up outside Iraq. Only. Then will I feel that they're safe shaima halio next to the Democratic Republic of Congo? If you're Congolese the democratic base is sort of a joke. That's never been very funny and all the Congolese people I've known have tended to be pretty eager to laugh about most things Congo has a history of political strongman and multi-player wars next weekend. Though elections are due to be held Congo is also a vast country crisscrossed by rivers rather than roads with forty million voters living widely dispersed. So how'd you manage an election under those circumstances? Our correspondent Louise west has been following one man's determined voyage to bring democracy to his people a father and son paddling wooden canoe carrying a large black box as they pushed through the rainforest the some stops to take care of his father. Other next to that Congo an electronic voting machine. It's come all the way from South Korea.
