Ex-adviser to first lady: Working for Trumps was a 'mistake'
"This is from page. One eleven of Stephanie. Winston coughs. New Book Melanie and me thirty five days before the inaugural. She says back in New York. I attended a meeting with president-elect trump in his office. The space was packed with. Boxes Trinkets and piles of paper and I thought I was a hoarder his office looked like a garage sale. Stephanie Donald, said tell me, what's going on with the inauguration planning Ivanka joined. Donald than me for the meeting I presented to the two of them. I grabbed my binder over to Donald Side of the desk and sat with my knees on the floor. He sat in his red leather chair leaning back clasping his hands ready for me to proceed Ivanka hovered over me. I. Went through hundreds of pages covering all eighteen events Ivanka made comments and ask questions will there be a red carpet. Where do we walk during the prayed? What about seeding at the swearing in after party? After the parade on Pennsylvania Avenue? Donald said quote I don't want floats. I said, okay. The president continued quote I want tanks and choppers make it look like North Korea There was no way. He really wanted goosestepping troops and armored tanks that would break tradition and terrify half the country. When he vodka North Korea she didn't Bat Ni-. I walked out of the meeting ruffled and worried. I texted close friend and colleague quote. North. Korea style military parade. Bad idea. That's just one of the anecdotes written in the new book by Stephanie Winston walk-off Cough farmer friend an adviser to first lady Melania trump smoke off. Of course, also played a key role in organizing the trump inauguration and twenty seventeen that has led to so much consternation and so much legal trouble ever since she has written the most detailed account of all of this in her new book, New Book called Milania and me the rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady joining us. Now for the interview is Stephanie Winston Will. Cough Miss walk-off I really appreciate the the trust it takes to be here I know you could be anywhere talking about this. Thank you for being here. And thank you for having me so much Rachel really. So that wouldn't rather be anywhere. Else Else I you to say that. Obviously there's a there's a lot here. There's a lot that's very raw here particularly about the distress. About the dissolution of your friendship with the First Lady of circumstances under which he left the white. House. I want to talk first of all though about something what you describe about the inaugural, which is really never been publicly described by anybody involved in it before you're pretty frank about the idea that there's a lot of missing money unaccounted for money in terms of what was raised for the inaugural versus what was spent. Do you feel like you have a general grasp how much money that might be do you have a theory or any knowledge of where it might have gone? Well I do know that at the time that I questioned where the money was going or how much everything costs I was asked to not attending meetings. So. It took me a few years to figure everything out. But it's just you know. People need to just follow the money. In terms of who is following the money it's remarkable that you describe the the difficulty and the decision that you made to cooperate with these multiple ongoing investigations including the Attorney General and. Having received a subpoena from Southern District of New York I know that those are ongoing proceedings and you're limited what you can say but do you feel like the people who are investigating this at various levels? Know what happened to the money? Do you feel like the investigations are on the right track in terms of them, figuring out what happened to these millions of unaccounted for dollars? Unfortunately with our Justice Department right now, I don't really know entirely what's going on, but some of these investigations and that's really sad and challenging place to be especially since this elections right around the corner. I do know that Joan Cari scene is still estimating is still open but as far as the southern district, I don't know where that stands as well as the intelligence May. Have you been has the White House contact you since your book was on track to publish since people started to realize what was going to going to be in this book has the Justice Department or the White House anybody else in the trump administration contacted you. I've actually been contacted by both the White House and the. The Justice Department. Can you tell us anything about either those communications for starting with the White House in terms of what they, what they wanted to communicate to you or what they asked if you? A couple of months I had to cease and desist as well as. Again, the last thing that any of these people want is for the truth to be told. I have lived with this shoulders for the last several years trying to make sense of it all trying to understand what happened. While I was working at the inauguration, but also what happened? While pressure fielding amounting around. Your nine ninety and releasing of where hundreds of million dollars was spent. This is you know it's like Donald Trump is the best game three Card Monte, right? It's like. Everything's a shell and everything's going in different directions chaos is just part of the game. As you said earlier I love it. You know only the best and Quite, a bit quite a bit of the best. You drive in, cow. Sorry didn't mean to interrupt. Please carry on. No No. Politics. This delays very awkward. The satellite delays made all the worse by all. Kofi driven Gremlins in terms of remote studio. So that was my fault. I'm sorry. Let let me just ask you first of all to go back and say whatever you wanted to finish in terms here thought there and I'll just ask another question which is If. The White House was telling the truth when they put out public statements denying that first lady, Melania trump, and the president had no role in planning the inaugural and that the when the White House when the White House said, they didn't know about any concerns about budgeting or how much things would cost or how things would be carried out during the inaugural. Your book would seem to give lie to those statements and make clear that the when the White House said those things that those aren't accurate. The machine of the false narratives that gets created by the White House is so overwhelming and so. Powerful and the fact that people really believed when you look around of the people that were actually involved in planning inaugurations if they're gonNA, pin it on me, is that was Milan. His friend. Works Right. Right in the quarter Malaga's friends the only person willing to help her and. You that's fight light show right on me without in calling me and asking me if it was So my integrity, my reputation everything was destroyed in a matter of seconds and. It was as if no big deal just flip, often move on. And I wasn't prepared to do that have I didn't feel sorry. Having the opportunity to tell your side of the story and to explain what happened during the inaugural to explain even what you could tell was happening with the financials of the inaugural being able to put in this book. Does it make you feel. Not I guess not protected in any way but at least does it make you feel like you're in a stronger position because at least now, you can articulate what you saw where you came from and what your side of it feels like a lot of the frustration that led to this book is feeling that you weren't allowed to defend yourself. And I'm still relying on First Person Council I'm still not allowed to say everything so I'm saying as much as I can within the law I. Think that being muzzled with an NDA for all these years it has been Ostra phobic to say the least I stopped living regular life by a free children a husband I really I sort of locked myself in. And it's amazing to me that I'm part of the three different investigations yet I'm witnessed all of them and it. It really is a raid of Shenanigans and I feel that the trump presidency is just leasing our country and I had no choice to not tell the story. I had to be here. Do I feel protected? I actually do feel more protected because now everyone knows the truth. and. I've been able to share my life story with what happened because it took over my life and. Am I you know. It's complicated.
WWE Payback: A new Roman Reigns has arrived, but now what?
"A quick wrestling that we're watching Smackdown here, just kind of watching and Yeah, they're starting to push B E. They actually believe it or not, You said Summer slam that another paper view coming up this weekend payback or something like that. And it kind To summer slam and then a little twist ending to this show tonight with Roman reigns coming back in this then the other will be part of the triple threat on doll the Senate stuff, but I agree. I saw some man Twitter say. Why don't they give biggie a push right now? And they're starting to a little bit. Give him a solo push. Remember last year, you know WrestleMania. The buildup to Kofi Kofi Kingston was fantastic. As as the as the heavyweight champion. I thought he was terrific about the story leading up to it was great. I thought kind of overcoming the odds. And you know how long you've been with the company in this day and the other? I thought I thought the story was great. And I thought he had some great matches. He's a great worker, and I really enjoyed that story. But there's been, you know, people wondering about okay when they're gonna give Gigi a pusher man. He's got that look. He's got the personality and especially in the times that were given if you don't know Biggie is part of the new day. I mean, he's He's an African American guy. And he's big and muscular looks great, great personality. I really enjoy the new day that street profits man. They are as lame as Khun B. They are the absolute poor man's new day. They so want tohave like the fun, Cool, hip tag team for Ring. Like what they had was smack down a new day. A New day's fantastic. Those guys are great man. I mean, I really think Kofi and biggie, especially when those two guys are attacking that they are terrific. That street profits is dreadful. They are the lame assed act out there. But why not give Biggy big singles push right now? Why not give him a shot at the Universal title in and give him a big push as a scene, especially given the culture in the times and everything going on and he's deserved it and he's earned it and he's there's no question about he's a big enough personality. He's got the look and everything and Vince Love, so he's got all that. He's got.

Wanna give Biggie pushed, But of course, you know Roman's back. So that's Vince's guy. Gotta push Roman right?

"York York City City must must submit submit it. it. School School reopening reopening plan plan to to Albany Albany Mayor Mayor De De Blasio Blasio talked talked about about it it at at his his daily daily briefing. briefing. He He says says schools schools will only open if the city's infection rate is below 3%. It's been under that percentage since June 10th parents can opt for distance learning for their Children. Otherwise, they'll be in class two or three days a week. And learning from home on the other day. If you're not feeling well in the morning, you have to stay home, and I want to emphasize that were saying that all parents if your child is sick, you must keep your child home. Everyone in school staff and students will be required to wear a face mask and maintain social distance masks will be provided. Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza says all staff will have to be tested before school starts. City will prioritize free testing for school based staff with 24 hour turnaround time results. For at any of the 34 city run testing locations. School based staff members are also encouraged to opt into monthly Covad 19 testing, which is critically important. If a case of Corona virus should crop up in the classroom, that room will be closed and remote learning will be implemented and if there are two Kofi cases at a school from different classrooms The entire building will be closed for at least 14 days.
Trump threatens school funding, demands new CDC guidelines amid reopening battle
"The president wearing a mask in public for the first time at Walter. Reed on Saturday faces a leadership crisis of his own making with new use cases spiking more than seventy, one, thousand on Friday and daily death tolls in Arizona, South Carolina and Texas up by more than one hundred percent in the past month. The worst is yet to come. Come as we work our way through that massive increase and people testing positive Mr. trump is at odds with his top infectious disease expert on the trajectory of the virus. The current state is really not good. We are still knee deep in the first wave of this Dr Out. She's a nice man, but he's made a Lotta mistakes of the federal response as a country. When you compare us to other countries I don't think you can say we're doing great. We're just not is the united. States losing the war against Kofi, no, we're winning the war and we have areas that flamed up and they're going to be. Fine over a period of time, and on the death, rate or mortality rate is right now at a level that. People, don't talk about, but it's down ten fold ten fold. It's a false narrative to take comfort in in a lower rate of death and president. Trump is threatening to make the already difficult debate over school reopenings, his latest front of the culture wars after the CDC published new guidelines Mr. trump called them very tough and expensive within hours. The prison said today. We don't want the guidance to be too tough. and. That's the reason why next week. CDC's going to be issuing a new set of tools. The president warned may cut off funding if not open pointing to democratic governors. They don't want to open because they think it will help them on November third. I think it's GonNa hurt them on November third. Open your schools I don't see how we do anything, but remote education of the federal government doesn't step in now with less than four months until the presidential election. Mr Trump finds himself under siege. To conservative justices he appointed, joined the Supreme Court majority to dismiss his claim to absolute immunity from investigators, seeking his tax returns is a political witch. The likes of which nobody's ever seen before a tell all book by his niece hits bookstores this week near reaction to Mary. Trump's books and many republicans worry as political standing will hurt the party down the ballot in November late on Friday. Perhaps looking to his post-presidency, MR trump commuted the sentence of his longtime friend campaign advisor Roger Stone who was convicted of lying to Congress, witness, tampering and obstruction all to protect the president, and the president has saved my life, and he's giving me the opportunity to fight for vindication.

Nature, or nurtured? A politicised virus-origin hunt
"The origin of the novel Corona Virus Wear and POW. Actually I infected. Human has become more than a scientific question yesterday. President Donald Trump claimed he had seen evidence that the virus came from a laboratory in China will look at exactly where it came from who it came from how it happened. Separately and also scientifically. So we're going to be able to find at my question is. Have you seen anything at this point that gives you a high degree of confidence that the Wuhan Institute of Urology was the origins virus? Yes that's not what Mr Trump's own intelligence services have suggested they say they've seen no evidence of genetic engineering and that's what scientists are saying so far too but the story is nowhere near complete before the initial outbreak. In a Chinese city of Wuhan. The trail goes cold. There's much more than a blame game at stake here. Finding out exactly how. This latest corona virus made the leap into humans is vital putting a stop to future outbreaks over the last twenty years. Humans have been hit three times by Corona viruses that cools fatalities. Natasha Luder is our health policy editor. The first signs of trouble were in two thousand two. When saws entered human population. The second sign of trouble was in two thousand twelve when mesmerized somewhere in the Middle East and now the question everybody in the Raji and epidemiology wants answered is where exactly Saws Kobe. To the virus that causes coded nineteen came from are the potential origins of this corona virus. Well the main theory is that this virus jumped from an animal probably in the city of Wuhan towards the end of last year another theory. Is that the spillover event as they're called happened somewhere else and the virus actually has been spreading in humans unnoticed for some time and it arrived in the food markets on was simply kind of amplified in the unsanitary conditions that the Wuhan Market was Warren of little shops. The animals are being gutted that kept in cages on top of each other and it sounds really kind of unsanitary. The third theory which is seen as less likely is that it leaked from Lavar trade. That was handling viruses. And why is it so important to address that question specifically the origin question? A number of reasons the most important being that if there's a precursor virus that is circulating currently in an animal now in China it could jump over into humans again and could cause another outbreak if we can find out how this virus jumped over into humans the maybe we can stop these kind of things happening again in the future. Where does the research point so far with the current state of play in terms of an origin most human corona viruses like saws covy to have animal origins both saws original saws on murders that ancestral virus was about that bat virus then transferred into an intermediate animal and then jumped into humans? We already know that there is a bat virus that look similar to size covy too so we have some clues that are pointing in that direction too. Why is the hunt on for an intermediate animal? Why is it so certain? Hasn't come directly from bats. Well it is possible that it came directly from bats but the fact is the humans. Don't have much contact with bats. And so the way that we have had viruses before that have ultimately oath origin tobacconists through an intermediate species with Mas. The Bat virus jumped into camels in the case of Sauce. Kofi we don't know what the intermediate species is this being a lot of speculation people wondering about penguins. We know that it's the virus could transfer into cats. It could be any of a number of animals. You keep saying jumping and transference. How exactly does that happen? I is it changing all the time. And so if you imagine you've got a virus in a bat and every time it reproduces though be an era a genetic mutation and so they changed. Just slowly through random mutation. That's one way but if there are two different viruses in the SAIMAA animal on Bass do carry a number of different current viruses. What happens is the two different viruses can exchange genetic information through something called recombination and recombination allows for kind of big shifts in the way that a virus works and so you can exchange loss of genetic material between two devices will unavoidable questions. Here is the line of inquiry about not having been a complete random event about it being engineered in a lab some conspiracy theorists would suggest scientists have looked at at theory Eliana and they dismissed quite quickly and said it just doesn't like it's been genetically engineered if you were going to genetically engineered virus you would take bits of. Barr says that exist you Bolton together to create something new and that isn't the case this sequences completely novel. It looks like it's the product of some sort of naturally evolutionary process. So we can rule out the genetic engineering but we can't rule out is a laboratory release a tall. There's no doubt that to laboratories in will hand were working with back Corona viruses. But some people have pointed out that with lots of people handling bats in these laboratories. Isn't it possible that the bat virus jump straight from the baton to human who is infected in some kind of laboratory accident and who then carried it into the city of Wuhan Festival? It's very difficult. Proven negative and so one of the concerns about this hypothesis is while it's a completely reasonable question to ask. The question has become quite political. Nasty Way I'm not ready to rule out the possibility of a laboratory origin but I think it has to be one of the less likely options that we are pursuing. If we'RE GONNA get distracted by essentially politicians trying to score points win. Lose sight of the science questions which important public health will permit to be distracted. Though you say people are in these high security labs that is to say these leaks. Don't happen I mean truly they do. Yeah I mean we get leagues all the time. You have leaks from arteries around the world. The math outbreak in Britain came from laboratory. You've had saws escape in China twice. You've had outbreaks in US laboratories. I mean remember the Dod. It managed to send live anthrax in the post to over two hundred countries around the world. I think you need to take a step back Jason. When saws broke out when I broke out when AIDS broke out there. Were PEOPLE READY WITH SERIOUS. These genetically engineered viruses and they all turned out not to be true and so it is a very human thing to speculate that that's swear novel virus comes from but all I can turn back to is science and say while it doesn't look like one. Do you have a sense of science will ever pin this down? We'll we know what the intermediate animal was or or indeed could be or where we might expect to see future corona viruses pop out and be able control that in some way. So I'm not to mistake. I think we will get to all of these questions. One thing we do is we can start looking at blood samples from humans going back into November and figuring out if they have antibodies to saws copay. And that would give us some idea of whether this virus really did start on that focal point of the Wuhan market which it may not have done or were circulating more widely in Wuhan off further beyond what scientists also need to do is interview in detail. The early cases for that. Some cooperation from the Chinese would be very useful. I do have concerns the that the charge nature of the debate is making it more difficult for the Chinese to be supportive open and welcoming to outside scientific inquiry exchange of information between scientists happened before this and it will happen after this. I would guess it would be happening. A little bit more consistently and openly. Were not for the fact that this has become such a political hot potato
How did BC successfully flatten the curve?
"Columbia and Ontario where the two provinces had I by Kofi Nineteen. They recorded their first cases just a day apart back at the end of January and BC. In fact was the first place but evidence was found of the virus spreading in the community that was march fifth at looked like BC might have just as much trouble as Ontario at that point. But it hasn't since then. British Columbia has been a model of how to control a pandemic and in the past couple of weeks. The province seems to have successfully flattened the curve and in the process. It has made a star out of its provincial health officer as of Monday British Columbia had less than two thousand cases of cove in nineteen four comparison Ontario had more than fourteen thousand and Quebec was closing in on twenty five thousand. Yes the Central. Canadian provinces are two and three times the size of BC but those numbers are much lower than the population would suggest what happened and British Columbia that didn't happen and Ontario and Quebec. What can other provinces learn from? Bc's approach how much of this was preparation. How much was response? How much was luck and will it stay that way because the curve flat for good and BC or is a new spike? Bending it back up right now. We'll ask somebody who's been covering the provincial government and public health response every day during this crisis the soon as Claire takes us around the whole country for everything you need to know about this virus today. Worldwide the number of Kovic nineteen cases has now topped three million. The head of the World Health Organization says though some places are starting to ease restrictions. The pandemic is far from her and they're still a lot of work to be done. The organization is mainly concerned about trends in Africa Eastern Europe Latin America and some Asian countries. Here at Home Quebec Ontario. Have both released plans for easing restrictions around Cova Nineteen in Quebec elementary schools and daycares? We'll start reopening mid-may while high schools colleges and universities will not reopen until late August in Ontario. Three stage process was announced at will start with reopening select workplaces and allowing small gatherings stage. Two will involve opening more workplaces and outdoor spaces and allow some larger gatherings and the final stage would be to open all workplaces and allow pretty much all public gatherings each of these stages will last between two to four weeks. And it's not known yet when this will all start that all depends on when the province sees a steady decrease in the number of cases. Prince Edward Island is expected to release a plan as well this week on Monday. The province had reported no new cases for twelve straight days as of Monday evening. Forty eight thousand five hundred cases of Cova Nineteen in Canada with two thousand eight hundred and seventeen deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story we used is the legislative reporter for news. Eleven thirty which is a Vancouver radio station but she is based in Victoria at the legislature. I Lisa Hi and not at the legislature right now working out of my my living room in my bedroom. Yes well these are the Times. There's windows here. There is a windows at the legislature. Where I work. So that's a big upside for me. Well why don't you I for those of US outside the province? Can you explain how he's doing? And where the experts think. You guys are in terms of flattening the curve. All we hear about outside of the provinces praise right now well I think is had a few things that have made life a little better for us. Though we've still had one hundred people die and I think any amount of death is not is not ideal so we started early. I I think there was a few things that helped us out. People seem to have bought into the restrictions that we've had here we started because we had our case. I case early we also had Washington state to our South King County. There in the Seattle area was really hard. Hit at a care home. So those numbers skyrocket quickly which I think raised the alarm and we have the benefit of having a provincial health officer who has been on the front lines the situations like this before Dr Buddy. Henry was part of the SARS response in Toronto. She worked for the WHO. She was in the front lines of battling Bulla in Africa so she has a lot of experience which I think has held this province in a very solid position in the way that she's approach this but there was also some things that aided vc that you would just put down to luck. We had a later Spring break plan for students here which allowed our province to learn from the tragedies of other provinces and other places where the spring breaks were earlier so travelers went abroad and brought cove in nineteen home before we knew what a disaster it was going to become right so our curve your has eased our peak was at the end of March. There was one day that we had on the weekend there. Twenty Eighth March Ninety two cases and then a couple of days later seventy cases and then we've slowly been coming down from. There

"kofi" Discussed on First Things First
"The Patriots that's the real psychos your word. That's true role model where it is a role model for Brady. It's good it's good role models role model to go down and live in a place where with winning walls and winning foundation and he found jeeter's James Howson he's setting that's where he's GonNa be gotta take a break coming up. Wwe superstar Kofi Kingston joins us to discuss this weekend's wrestlemainia action. That is next. I'm I I. Wwe superstar Kofi things in joining us this morning. Kofi Good Morning. Thank you for being with us. I want to jump right Aulia. Yeah yes yes off a raise it speaking of that. I raise it all the way up. Kofi which you won't be doing at the event tell me about the opportunity to be able to entertain people during these difficult times clearly. Europe personalities ready just SORTA jump out there. Yeah for sure. This is something that we take a lot of pride in being able to entertain people throughout any kind of tough times that they might be having a wwe pretty much one. Oh one for you know however long. Yeah we it's just important to be able to provide a sense of levity and to be a person that is on this wrestlemainia. It's probably like one of if not the most unique wrestlemanias in the history of wrestlemanias but at the same time you know crowd many or whatever but at the same time it's something that like we are is just so you need to be on that card is it's going to be and you know we take a lot of pride and just bringing that energy and still wrestlemainia for us so. I think this is going to be great. It's going to be two days which has never happened before either. Gronk as the host. You know me being a patriots fan and as a matter of fact so I just want you guys at segment just before and like when I was thinking about the questions that you guys might ask me for this interview I was like all mandated probably might ask me about Brady. That might ask me about the Patriots. I'm like man what if we got to? I got hand the Gut you know and then I wake up. Send the Boston Globe. Has This article about this possibility. So this is why you like you put these things out into the universe you know you affirm my mom always says affirmation is key and now here we are you know. I don't want to get my hopes up but man come on man come on. Let's go well. I know we're going to get into GRONK and the Tom Brady or to a later in our discussion. But I want to ask you about this week. And in this regard huge part of your story has been the embrace of the fans the fans have embraced. You not only from their couches but in the arena. The pop you get in. The crowd is one of the things that really skyrocketed you to real superstardom Wrestlemainia. This year is in a very unique place. As we all ours were dealing with this pandemic. How much more incumbent is it going to be on the superstars to bring even extra energy? Because there's no crowd. And how much tougher is that as a superstar when you don't hear the crowd chanting or booming but you've got to deliver it because people are doing that on their couches. You just can't see him in hero. It's definitely different. I'M NOT GONNA lie. We were out there. You know it's different like you said. We thrive off the crowd. It's such a huge part. Probably the biggest part of what we do but at the same time like his performance we have this internal sense of I. Guess where the crowds should be and for myself like I told you when I was on the so like a while ago. This is all I've ever wanted to do. So anytime I get into a ring and I start getting in there again with guys like the use os or guys like Ms Morrison. Who are so good what they do. You can't help but feel energized and that energy just carries out throughout the arena regardless we always say like we put on the best so if you have one person in the crowd or you have a million people in the crowd. The energy from us is always the same. You always want to go all out. Obviously the crowd helps that but our energy doesn't doesn't really change you know so and then at the back of our minds. We know that we are providing that sense of relief for people a distraction you know in a sense of entertainment that the wwe always brings so you you feed off of that you know and I think that people are going to be pleasantly surprised with the way that Wrestlemainia is this year even though it is if Kofi talked about the historical importance of Wrestlemainia you of course one your belt last year at Wrestlemainia. How important was it for you to win at Wrestlemainia? You could have one in a lot of ways but you want to at Wrestlemainia heroes that you saw growing up. Yeah for me. It was a stereotypically childhood dream that came through. You couldn't have written a better story the way that it happened. It was just so organic. It wasn't supposed to happen and it was the crowd that gave the fuel and energy for it to to progress week after week. Koffi mania is what a lot of people referred to last year's Wrestlemainia as and as a performer. That's what you strive for. You want to have a moment that reaches so many people that affect so many people in so many different ways so for me. That's that's what that was like. I'M GETTING GOOSEBUMPS HERE. Like talking about it in my house with nobody in the room. My kids my walk in at any given moment by the way they'll probably about wake up pretty soon but it's still blows my mind that even a year thinking about the effect that that match and my victory winning the wwe championship had on so many different people. I get messages on twitter all the time. It's hard to believe that it was a year ago because it really does feel like yesterday when I was in there with woods and e and eighty five thousand people in my family in the crowd and my my my kids getting in the ring with me and my oldest son throwing out a t shirt. You know to everybody. It's just it's it's incredible. It is truly incredible and even like I said a year a whole year later. Here we are and it still feels as amazing as it did the night that I want coffee. This is really cool on top of everything else. You're doing your now starring in a Netflix Film. Called the main event about an eleven year old boy who discovers a mask and goes on to become a wwe superstar. Tell us about the experience. What was the whole thing like? What was it like filming this? It was awesome. I think a lot of people the natural transition like from being a wwe superstar post WWe. Everyone always talks about. Oh what are you going to go into acting right? You're going to go into Hollywood and to me. They're very different things. They're very different entities. In the way that you approach it and I wasn't sure if I wanted to go that route but I think that this is the perfect way to kind of get my feet wet. I'm playing myself in the movie. I had an amazing. There's an amazing cast their You know it was. It was crazy it was awesome. And you know myself. I'm in it same as a story about a boy who finds a magical Lucia mask and he gets all these wrestling powers. You know what I mean. And he's able to go out and like live out his dream and I just happened to me the catch that he looks up to the movie. So He's wearing my shirt is his grandmother is in love with me knows. It's an awesome like just a fun story. That comes out on Netflix. And the timing couldn't be any better because with everybody being indoors. A lot of people are watching Netflix. You know so. I think this this story is going to be able to bring people a lot of just a lot of you know just a lot of joy. It's good like if you're a kid who wants to be a wrestler. This is kind of a story you want to be involved with. So I'm looking forward to it. I think it was. I think it was Kofi our colleague at Fox Sports Future. Nfl Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski. You mentioned him earlier. He obviously has a huge part with wrestlemainia. I am curious if he decided to go. Full Bore Oh look at. That guy didn't.

Espresso May Be Better Ground Coarser
"Making a cup of coffee isn't exactly rocket science but a new study shows that a background in math and analytical chemistry doesn't hurt because researchers who applied their skills in materials science and modeling to Brewing Espresso have made a groundbreaking discovery contrary to popular belief using fewer beans and of course grind. We'll give you a more consistent shot. Their work appears in the Journal. Matter if you're a coffee AFICIONADO. You've no doubt noticed that some days you may get a great espresso other days not so much even with the same coffee machine the same settings to understand that variability the researchers developed a mathematical model to explore. How coffee is extracted or dissolved as water passes through the bed of grounds basically. What we did was to start by writing down some equations which apply to just a single ground. Jamie foster a senior lecturer in mathematics and Physics at the University of Portsmouth so less intimidating task because in a real Kofi bed you've got millions and millions of politics Packed together in this very complicated way and so more track to the problem is down the equations on a single ground to model the entire coffee bed foster and his colleagues copied that equation millions of times stirred in a bit more math and then poured on the theoretical water. The model tells us what we should expect in an ideal situation where all of the copies being contacted by all of the water equally. Christopher Hendin a computational chemists at the University of Oregon who also took part in the study and indeed the model describes reality very well for particular grind settings where there's a sufficient amount of large particles so that the water can flow freely through that bed. But when you grind sufficiently fine. That's when we started to see in real life a divergence from the expectation that the model was telling us with the fine grind. Some shots were stronger than predicted but some were considerably weaker which flies in the face of conventional wisdom thinking. If you want a strong a cup of coffee as well outgrowing it. Fine because By doing that will have smaller politics in grounds. Unassuming Apostolos will have a higher surface area and dishonest Extraction from the grains but what the researchers found is if you call them overdue. The grinding will ends up. Happening is the associate The clog up the gaps where the waters trying to flow on that actually hampers the extraction role than helping in the same is true for the amount of coffee. You start with so that less. Can counter intuitively end up tasting more since this article has come out. There has been a tremendous amount of activity on twitter arguing discussing just general excitement and interest in the project and independent of whether this helps make more reproducible. Coffee or not. This is a tremendous success that we have got millions of people to have read a scientific article in engaged with Science Butts. Great Success for scientific literacy and we can all drink to that

Chiefs hang onto perfect record thanks to last-minute comeback vs. Lions
"Let's start with the chiefs patch genuine this we can then Detroit. We gotTA GOTTA get into this trump to the fourth quarter undo to play. He's down by three four at the name. mahomes scrambles fifteen yards for the crucial first down later in the drive. Dr Daryl Williams punches it in from the won his second score of the day cheese. Take the four point lead one last shot for the Lions who played well yesterday yesterday but Matthew Stafford's hail. Mary is knocked down chiefs. Hold onto win thirty four thirty to remain undefeated undefeated can't even start with you. How were the chiefs able to rally for this win against Detroit. It starts with the back to back gold ago. Situations wasted where the chiefs defense was able to stand up and force turnovers yet crystals fumble recovery and you had to be shot Berlin fumble recovery which ended up being a touchdown. Everybody on the Detroit lines offense was asleep at the wheel. Nobody decided to finish the play. There wasn't a whistle blown ended up putting six on the board so that's where it starts for me but when you look at yesterday's game the Detroit Lyons had an opportunity to win that game they had an opportunity to take control of it because for the first half of that football game the lions defense played pretty well against the Kansas City chiefs offense. I mean you saw some of the things that Matt Patricia was doing some of the bracket coverages on Travis Kelsey. You'll Sammy Watkins a lot of men coverages to eliminate those open window throws. They tried to make it tough on Padma home so when you look at that defense they did their job. The Detroit lions offense didn't do their job and that's where it starts. You've got to be able to capitalize on those back back to back possessions with Golda. Go to stem the tide to put momentum in your favor and dictate the complexion of that second half. They didn't put the chiefs away when they had an opportunity tremendous point is for is Detroit's Defense and Matt Patricia Defensive Coordinator in Kansas City. I'm doing plan against Kansas City last couple years. You can believe he made a phone call in that first. Half Game Plan looked a lot like the first half Game Plan New England has had against Kansas City and the two times that they were able to hold Patty mahomes down amount so that right there that was very very good Detroit. I believe is a better football team that NFC north. I believe now might be the best division. F- F- Detroit is the worst team. Let's see Minnesota is going to do but tremendous tremendous playmaking by the defense I see I don't mind if you have a bad defense. If you're GONNA have a historic offense you gotta be either. Get to the quarterback or you got a bill to make plays force turnovers interceptions in fumbles and in this game those turnovers what were they were to save him with you. Give Patty mahomes just enough just like Aaron Rodgers in this prime if you give him just enough time on that clock they they are going to march down the field in those two minutes situations in score because you can't do enough things defensively if you give them that chance but the chiefs chiefs defense you gotta give them credit. They made just enough plays that the offense was able to add to be able to steal this win because the offense oddly was the part that was holding the chiefs back early in this game you mentioned the lions turnovers and those were critical turnovers in the most critical spots but the chiefs themselves fumbled the the ball four times and lost three of them. The chiefs had three fumbles lost throughout this football game that stymied their own drives and this for me. Detroit deserves a lot of credit for playing as well as they did holding that chiefs offense. I know they scored thirty four points but one hundred yard touchdown return. You'll the chiefs offense to twenty seven. That's about as much as you can. Ask Your defense do held them debt. Winnie for the first fifty nine and a half minutes until the touchdown at the end but on the chiefs side of things good teams lose this football game great teams find a way to win the Kansas. City chiefs didn't play well. They turn the ball over a bunch of times. Pat MOMS missed you. Were right about the coverage. I totally agree for the first time this this season the chiefs you could see. They really miss tyreek. Hill Damarcus Robinson didn't have a huge Game Sammy Watkins Nabet huge game. They could use tyreek Hill and Patrick. MOANS missed some early passes asses were guys were open but in the ball back two and a half minutes left down three even when they get to a fourth and eight. Patrick Mahomes sees the right play way to make goes and runs and makes it is similar last year against Baltimore in a game. The chiefs didn't play well and Patty didn't play great for the nine that when he threw a pass tyrod kill this this when he ran himself the most critical play after that and the drive the one that put them inside the five yard line he finds Byron Pringle for his second career catch which one of eight people to catch passes Kansas City right now. They're playing their opponent every week and they're playing the Patriots record like there's there's two teams the league that are foreign oh Kansas City in New England and if you you give away a game like this if we do think the pats are going to be fourteen into and we know how important in theory homefield event could be then all of a sudden your plan from behind the eight ball so despite not playing a great game despite Patrick Mahomes for only the fourth time in his career not throwing a touchdown pass the chiefs found a way to win against previously undefeated team on the road in Detroit Kenny the same way the Patriots were able to expose their the the rams a little bit last year. Is there something to the fact that the lines did the same with the chiefs yesterday sort of put out there a game plan of how to do it and how to get to the chiefs. I mean they he did keep Patrick Mahomes from scoring a touchdown Jimmy. It's a Copycat League and Pat Mahomes was working on a street of fourteen consecutive games where he had two touchdowns or more thrown. I mean he's one shy of Peyton Manning's all time record at some point. Pat Mahomes is going to clips that record but when you start talking about the Kansas City chiefs offense. It's not a matter of if it's just a matter of win and so when you look at twenty three games sample size that we have as pat mahomes being the starting quarterback in that offense you recognize. You're not going to win a game against them. Twenty one seventeen you're going to have to to be able to score some points and that's why you have a razor thin margin of error when it comes to red zone possessions and that's why I go back to those two possessions that the Lions had in the beginning of the second half Accu- have to be able to capitalize on those plays if you don't eventually Kansas City is going to make the requisite plays to be able to win the game now as far as the game plan that Matt Patricia employed. I think it's good for the Kansas City chiefs offense to struggle like this against that game plan so you're young quarterback develops answers when he sees those looks later in the season and as we get to the

I don't know if Seth Rollins wanted the velcro on it or that was a Brock Leser thing. And there's just still velcro on it. But I believed the last person who had velcro on a championship title was macho man, Randy savage. That's the way he wanted his winged eagle title to be if I remember correctly. So I don't I don't.

He's great at the new role. But it was it was funny to watch it on how how things have turned around. You know, the the our completely flipped over. But I, you know, there was a lot to like on the show. I thought the work ethic of the show was great the mizzen. Shame man. They over excelled that Brel could have been any promotion at any time. And it felt like a real brawl didn't feel stage wrong guy on the wrong guy. One wrong guy. You know, what I understand why you say that I will disagree with you on that. Because MS went above me.

Rwanda genocide: Nation marks 25 years since mass slaughter
"Now today marks twenty five years since the start of the genocide in Rwanda which killed nearly a million people in just one hundred days in nineteen Ninety-four about eight hundred thousand people with slaughtered by ethnic Hutu extremists. They were targeting members of the minority Tutsi community as well as their political opponents, irrespective of their ethnic origin, the massacres mostly by gangs. Wielding machetes swept across the country groups of people were killed in their homes in churches in schools places where they sought shelter. The United Nations was heavily criticised for stepping back and the United States for turning a blind eye to the brutality in a desire to avoid intervention for years. After the genocide the US President Bill. Clinton and the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, both apologize to the victims for not attempting to prevent the atrocities that took place. It took a twenty year operation for UN backed court, the international criminal tribunal for Rwanda set up by the UN Security Council to bring some of the perpetrators to Justice. When our correspondent Ferdinand Amande is live in the in the capital of Rwanda Kigali an Ferdinand talkers through some of the events that will begin today. And then last I think over many days coming up. This as you mentioned was one hundred days of slaughter and on the twenty fifth anniversary. Rhonda begins a hundred days of mourning. It'll start this morning at the Kigali genocide memorial. We are more than a quarter of million people are bury their president pork Gama with other dignitaries from several countries of confirmed. The attendance will be there to light 'em memorial genocide flame after us. They will have a walk from Kigali convention center. All the way to the Amohoro national stadium. Amore is a place that is translated to mean peace. These we are many people's was shelter during that period of the genocide, and they're going to have some sort of commemoration just remember the twenty five years going on since the bloodshed death and plunder where the country is always going on. Now, mostly I also understand that during this period for the over one hundred days for seven days, then run that will mostly be very solemn. Calm. No loud music. No, loud shouting, even in some cases. None of the English football is very popular.

I'm told Rhonda stays really really come to remember the dead, what of moves towards reconciliation. How does that look to you twenty-five years on? What Rhonda has made great strides. I would say ever since the genocide of festival prison polka gunman is money to govern is the country to be largely peaceful compared to his neighbors even ruined weather with the killing this variance table, but right now in Rhonda, there's generally are a lot of sense of peace at the same time ever since the genocide ended a prisoner.

"All right. And then dating Brian and Eric grow come out and cut up promote about Kofi Kingston, not deserving the opportunity and saying you people comparing copays rise to my rise five six years ago. They're totally different. He was hand picked out of a tag division and given an opportunity he never earned and he's just nothing. But it'd be plus player throws that word back at Kofi. What you think of this is a hill. Promo for Brian. Good problem. Okay. And then Kofi Kingston gauntlet. Did you play four square on the playground? When you're a good way. I thought it was too early. If I saw the girls played, yes. Going on. I don't know if you're if the idea was. We'll investigate that another time. So watching the Kofi segment, and I was watching an I was just bored. And and so I started thinking about why? And yes, they did another long gauntlet recently that doesn't help things and yes, the faces constantly being against the odds has been done so much for twenty years now that it's tiring demoralizing, but the biggest issue to me is that they've taught you not to believe in anything to be tells you because it's run by these he'll thority figures who I all the time. They said Becky would get a title shot if she apologized, she apologized and they took away or title shot. Anyway, vincit coffee, we've got a title match, and he didn't. And so why invest emotionally in a long match. If you know that they they're likely to just change the rules at the end, no matter what happens. And then that's exactly what happened which just further cemented that like you were a sucker for if you were carrying about this thing because the whole thing is just, you know, just a waste of time. I mean, if you beat Brian Vince could've just set up some new obstacle. It's it's not it's not a matter of needing to heal to be fair. But you have to have some semblance of a sense that their rules to the game in order to came to care about the game. And that's where foursquare come said. When I was when I was a kid. I'd forgotten about that. It's like a callback already in fifth and sixth grade we used to play four square where you had four squares and yet a ball, and you basically try to work your way up to the top square. And I don't know if other people play this way, but the big hook the way we played it in my elementary school was top square got to make the rules. So they could basically screw over all the other players with rules that benefited them and nobody else and. Convoluted rules at that. Yes. And they could make up these new rules as they went along, you know, changing things. And so you'd Wayne in line to get in the game and try to work your way up to the top. Because if you're at the top, you could screw all the other players with your advantages of the rules, which was a big deal because it was like being the king of the whole thing. And you know, you could, you know, take advantage of you know, of other people so. So sometimes it's like it's like a metaphor him. So. Times the person in the top square, though, would take it too far and the dictate rules where not only did they have the advantage. But they'd basically make it so that it was basically impossible for the other kids to compete, and this this would happen on a regular basis. They'd set it up and people, you know, after scoring this person, and that person to other people would just be like Africa. They lose interest in the game. And they'd go play something else..
"kofi" Discussed on Cheap Heat
"So it's almost perfect that here we are again rolling into wrestlemainia with that energy around the whole atmosphere. What also it's only a certain kind of person who can really beat Daniel, Bryan. And have it seem really cool and surprising. Because Daniel Bryan's we are to be a he'll because he's so small himself. Yeah. But these still sold threatening though just like how skilled he is in the ring. Yeah. And with having Rohan his heater. So. That would be very cool. And hopefully, it's good news that we're not gonna see Kofi Faslane. I saw a tweet. I wanna get your thoughts on this. Do you think? That sammy's. Eighteen could come back and costs Kevin all the W championship and join up with Daniel, Bryan and Rowen in like this environmentally conscious. Dushi social Justice gimmick that they got going on. And that's the way they get Kevin Owens out of the title and clear LA for Kofi headed into mania. And then Sammy verse KO? Yeah. Yeah. Are they that's logical? That's. I don't remember what? Whereas Cao's story gone. Did they have a full series of batches? On they they did. But it was like it was sort of sporadic. It wasn't like a full-on feud. It was just like I wouldn't even say was stopping go. Because was just like when they ran across each other on site with hands, which I bought was always that was kinda cool like whether it was in the rumble, or if it was in a fatal four way match or like a multi man match. Anyway, they saw show the they will throw in hands. And the last time we saw them both on screen. They will like they will do in the whole best friend thing. So you would have to really they really do some work to explain what Sammy's issue with Kevin Owens is now, but. I feel like they have a a rivalry few that they could they can always pick it back up whenever they want. And it'll always be hot. I didn't that's an interesting way to bring Sammy back into the fold and get KO away from Brian to clear room for Kofi. I feel like I would want Kofi Daniel Bryan stipulation of some sort though too. Like, a grudge match type of stipulations know, how how about how about a good old fashioned blue cage cage match. Classic Kofi coming off the top of the blue cage. Yeah. And hopefully, he hits the splash. This tom. Mahar can't handle him missing that splashed. We know it would be too much for you to take. What else? What else what else is there as a major takeaway from this week? We Rick ricochet analysis black continue their random as a tag team. Yeah. They they they announced the the dusty classic on annex t and ricocheting out the black art team competing, dusty classic. So it looks like this is a way for them to get some chemistry as tag team. But also, I wonder if these guys are even like actually called up or if this is them. Sort of integrated annex t as the third brand if that makes sense. Yeah, we kinda talked about the guys on an TV, right? As one of the emails last week. Technology truth brought to you by echo. Truth. You will certainly send any text about your supervisor to your supervisor. What's Janet's fangs?.

"I don't think every time. You crown a champion. It has to be because you're committed to them. The top guy for the next seven eight years. And he can I think have good run that might be on the level of AJ AJ did, but fresher I think people would look forward to tuning into sea Kofi journey and how long would it last? I think that's a story in the palm of their hand that I don't want them to screw up because it was unexpected or they get cute with it. I think it's an organic story, and they should go with it and not complicate it. I know they gotta fill TV time fill it with Kofi Kingston, cutting spirited baby-faced promos in lining appeals for him to knock down. Yeah. I mean, you could definitely do that. And I'm he does show that and that was why I was kind of disappointed in that moment where those guys left because that was the to me that was the moment. And hopefully, we'll see that moment, you know, in in the weeks to come where they go from being, you know, we're here to entertain you too. Grown men championship rustler's, particularly Kofi. And it just didn't see it seemed like just seemed like they were just complaining under their breath and leaving and that that's the worst. So yeah. Yeah. He's got he's got that there, and it is because of it is because of the fans took to that two week push. And that was. That was the idea was to make Kofi in defeat with Daniel, Bryan. And that real, and they did a really good job with that and make Daniel Bryan be continue to be a credible credible. He'll champion whose hard to be what you want to see him beaten. And and so, yeah, I mean, I think that I think that the least will have out of this as Kofi Kingston as a challenger whom down the line and bound Alon not so long from now on could be that WWE champion, and and have have a chapter the way. Daniel bronze having a chapter right now playing playing what you described as a baby face champion that that people like, and and think is think authentic..
Palestinians trapped in coercive environment, says UN rights official
"This is loose. Graffiti of UN news, many Palestinians, living under his rarely occupation suffer from a course of environment were settlements expansion has made people's lives. So unbearable that they feel pressured to move according to a top u n official there James Heenan, head of the UN human rights office in the occupied Palestinian territory said that permits for building in the West Bank were almost non-existent now for Palestinians, speaking to Reema Bauza of UN news in Jerusalem. Mr. Heenan explains the challenges Palestinians routinely face today in the West Bank and east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip was buying and then he's truce Lamon Gaza will have their own different types of human rights challenges. But some of the challenges of calling across the whole area. One is use of force another is freedom of movement. Another is the way in which space society and human rights defenders dramatically, and if we talked specifically about Gaza, what are the issues that were you the most widely the buzz is really hope for the population Gazans feel and are under pressure from old photos at the moment, they are suffering from an eleven year blockade and closures imposed by Israel. They suffering essentially also under the split between the West Bank and Gaza, the political split and the the factor thirties in Gaza, Mike loss, very hard for a number of people, including human rights defenders for us. The concern for Gaza is all about. Allowing people to have an adequate standard of living, which is a human rod under the ICCPR international could covenant uncivil political rights and towards that end. The UN is working tool to humanitarian response to what's going on in Gaza. Ultimately, of course, it's a political problem humanitarian, what are the other human rights challenges specific to the West Bank and east Jerusalem at the moment, the biggest human rods challenges are generated by settlements the expansion of settlements. And we produced two reports a year on this. In and of itself creates a number of human rights violations. So for example, severance themselves are violations of international, we know that. But when you establish a settlement in areas c in the West Bank, he generally brings populations into proximity brings a settlers into proximity with the local Palestinians, and we know that that proximity generates things like settle of items the take over of land blocking the freedom of movement. The Palestinians nearby things like the blocking of access to services for Palestinians nearby. So the settlement enterprises people call it doesn't just have a problem with the Silverton themselves, but the impact on human rights. The biggest thing that's happening. Most recently is what we call the environment where you have a desire to move, Tulsa and communities for the purposes of settlement expansion or creation. What's happened at the long pass? I communities would have just been forcibly moved. Now. What's happening is those communities are put on the enormous pressure. So feel I have no choice but to move, and that's what we call. The course environment. This comes from the jury's prudence of you hate Trump troubles on the former Yugoslavia this idea that you can make lifestyle bearable for people through combination factors. They feel they have to. So for example, if you have a community near settlement sky to expand they can be subject to settle labontes. They can be subject to demolitions. So they cannot build in the West Bank term ability in the West Bank. But I'll sit ins are almost nonexistent. So any expansion they come undertake the young people get married. They can't start the village because there's no it to live. They can't expect access to services are blocked a firing zone can be declared by military nearby, which will mean that they can't access they land. And it can also mean that there is actual live far near the village which is dangerous last year. We had a sixteen year old boy killed by unexploded ordinance of this in the field. A combination of all of these factors all of which are human rights violations as well. Jen at their base makes life extremely difficult for people, and you see that people are leaving because of this. We know type in the West Bank of people on the huge amount of pressure to leave, and we know cases in Hebron where families of decided to move. Now each case has to be looked at all it's merits businesses, very serious mental. And the thing is Palestinians have a very very strong resilience. So they don't move easily. But it doesn't mean that the pressure is not there for them to move. And we're concerned I'm concerned that saw these communities will feel they have to move at some point. We'll talk about the courts environment. What does your office do on that issue? We have not see role an illegal role. Yeah. I think the office has been instrumental in bringing together this idea and making sure that there's a common understanding about what environments based on the jurisprudence of into. National tribunals, we track the quiz environment that patents to see what's happening through the violence. Not just the instances of settler violence. But also, the trends, and we analyze trends, and we publish them. We are mandated by the UN to be public about these things. What is the final message would like to express? I think the involvement globally. Is not supportive of human rights to seem to be. Since some places ideology, the pasta or system in the past. And you hear a lot said about that these days, but as Kofi man once said, it's not it's not people who so human rights is relevant. It's usually governments he said even real and for us. It's more relevant than ever that not just our office. But everyone stands up for human rights because the car is very very worrying.

Obama recalls Kofi Annan's integrity, persistence, optimism, the former president honored the former United Nations leader following a non Steph on Saturday by Hillary Hanson for huffpost. Former President Barack Obama paid his respects to former United Nations, Secretary General Kofi in on Saturday after a non Steph at the age of eighty Kofi Annan was a diplomat and humanitarian Wim bodied the mission of the United Nations like few others. Obama said in a Facebook post, his integrity persistence, optimism and sense of our common humanity always informed as outreach to the community of nations. Long after he had broken barriers. Kofi never stopped his pursuit of a better world and made time to motivate and inspire the next generation of leaders, Michelle, and I offer our condolences to his family and many loved ones the Ghana-born and non had publicly congratulated Obama on his two thousand eight presidential win saying that the election demonstrates America's extraordinary capacity to renew itself and adapt to a changing world a non who won the Nobel peace prize in two thousand one for revitalizing the United Nations. And giving priority to human rights also praised Obama when he won the award in two thousand nine, it was an unexpected, but inspired choice. Non-statement read in an increasingly challenging volatile world President Obama has given a sense of hope and optimism to millions around the world. But he also criticized the former US president when he deemed it necessary including calling Obama's Libya policy, not very helpful in two thousand eleven more recently, a non, his spoken out against president, Donald Trump's, foreign policy decisions in may announce that he deeply regrets Trump's choice to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and encouraged other signatories to renew their commitments. And though a non did not mention Trump by name in an agency, France press interview. Late last year, many interpreted his comments about the possibility of starting a nuclear war by accident to be in part a dig at the president. Honestly speaking, we are in a mess. Anon- said at the time. Thanks for listening subscribed to the briefing share with a friend so we can build a bigger more inclusive conversation.
"kofi" Discussed on PRI's The World
"Patrick Chiffot knew that side of in very well. Shit pot is a cartoonist in Switzerland who draws for the New York Times as well as some European newspapers. Patrick Cuffy on cartoons as hugely influential. They can make us laugh. He said, but they are no laughing matter. What did he mean does I think you connived the power of cartoons and the fact that indeed they make the day may contain. They can be dangerous to people have power and they can get cartoonist into trouble. So that's something that is not widely known of Kofi Annan we know his many commitments to peace and from a better world. But what we don't do that he was really committed. To the defense of freedom of speech, and he was a real fan of political cartoons. You helped create a group that was in part inspired by Kofi. Anna, it's called cartooning for peace. What is it? So cartooning for peace was born from a meeting between the few cartoonists led by my friend to Ramones and caffine in precisely more than ten years ago at the UN they gathered to think about the role and importance of political cartooning and the necessity to defend freedom of speech in spirit of dialogue. So from that meeting was born a movement, which counts now more than one hundred eighty cartoonists. And so you have a century Paris and you have foundation engineer and from two thousand ten Kofi Annan accepted to be deacon, canary chairman of the curtain for peace foundation and cartooning for peace was really created in the aftermath of the Danish Muhammed cartoon scandal. What position did. Coffee on take in that controversy. Well, you know, he was. He was diplomat so he would not take a position a you just trying to be helpful. I think that's one thing that scene is hold career trying to find solutions rank to find dialoque and trying to be helpful. He he was. He was wonder, say he was prince, fool of humanity was the end amount of race was the smoothest guy on earth. But at the same time he had this quality that you don't find in in every diplomat politician. He was really, he was a thick and genuinely kind caring. So we were blessed to have him as honorary chairmen any was it was not honorary he, it was genuine was really committed than really interest. What was his continued involvement in cartooning for peace as the years went on. So the team foundation, since two thousand twelve has established price that we award to cartoonist in the world authority for their talent, but for the courage, one of the very important commitment of coffee he would, you would end the prize to the winner, and you can't imagine how important that can be for curtness that is Trittin in his country. That is under the reason of three. Or sometimes sentenced to prison, which was the case of our latest Lorette and cook. Shannon was there and he stood by the cartoonists that was incredibly important. I can temperature something. The latest winner of the award in two thousand eighteen is moves out card from Turkey and muzo cards has been condemned. We just learned that the week before he received a price. He was not able to come to Geneva to get his prize because he's condemned to three years and nine months in jail in Turkey. And when we met Kofi Annan asked him, what can you do any said, I'm going to write personally to president, urge going to Turkey, which is what he did. So I can't tell you that story because because there's no more, they're not throw it and he was still with us, but he was going to great lengths to show support to freedom of speech patterns. Japan is a political cartoonist who lives in Switzerland. He draws for the New York Times and other newspapers. He's also vice president of cartoon for peace. A foundation that Kofi Annan was instrumental in founding. Thanks so much Patrick. Thank you support for this podcast comes from legalzoom. Most Americans don't have a will twenty years ago.

"Gutierrez said Mr. Annan was a guiding force for good and the South African president. Serum opposes said Mr. Annan had championed the African calls at the UN. We were food with pride to see an African leader dealing with world problems and finding solutions for them. So we dip our heads to him in great memory of him, and we will remember him for live. But he is left a legacy and legacy of peacemaking in the world. Colleague Jimmy, and Marshall's been talking to Edward Molsem Kofi Annan's chief speechwriter and his director of communications of the UN. And he was asked about his full of bosses softly spoken stone of diplomacy. I think it's true that he was very castle near us kind of fess new hap- soften thought before he spoke and he knew that in his job, you know, Xiaojing at people would not achieve any results. He was quite good at not saying yes in when he didn't want to. And on ho ho the quieter. He went to the mall, you knew that he was not comfortable, and then you unlikely to get anything. I appreciate that it was before your time, but people often point to Kofi Annan's behavior over Rwanda is being a considerable failing at the time that he was head of UN peacekeeping operations. Well, again, I think it was a failure failure of the United Nations. And I would say particularly of its key Member States because when the genocide stops huge and some Belgian peacekeepers were killed by the Hutu extremists. The other western countries Belgium imputed who had peacekeepers that withdrew them and the Security Council went along with that Kofi Annan was desperately I think he rang a by eighteen different governments to try and get more troops, but nobody was willing to send them what they Kofi Annan himself think were his major achievement says UN secretary general. I would say that what he thought was important was to show that the UN was at the service not just of governance, but of the peoples of the world. And he did a lot to lead the battle against HIV AIDS. Particularly getting the pharmacy big pharmaceutical companies to agree to make anti retroviral drugs available in poor countries at Ford -able prices. And I think he did a lot to make people more aware of the danger of genocide and ethnic cleansing war crimes crimes against humanity is and the responsibility which doesn't stop at national frontiers and would multiple with duty and Marshall now to Italy..
