South Korea lifts ban on imported sex dolls

"The South Korean government has formerly lifted a ban on the import of full body sex dolls. The move ends years of debate over how much the governments can interfere in South Koreans personal life, although there were no laws explicitly banning the import of sex dolls, hundreds, if not thousands of the products were seized by customs, custom officials cited a law that bans the input of goods that harm the country's beautiful traditions and public moral, importers took the case to courts most of which agreed that the dolls are used in people's private spaces and don't undermine human dignity, Korean custom service have since issued a statement saying its guidelines on sex dolls have been revised.

"In the future. So it may make their operations more difficult, though, again, my guess is if this goes through a whole appeals process, some of the effects would be much later down the road. So it's a bit of a slap on the wrist, if you will, but I'd say symbolically the verdict is telling a notable. Now, as we know, Trump himself has not been directly accused of this crime and you mentioned other cases that he is involved in. Just run us through those because there are many, many legal challenges that he's facing at the moment. There are several more in New York a probe by the New York attorney general and then also within Manhattan that are again looking at these business dealings and looking at Trump's role in particular within them. There's obviously the Mar-a-Lago documents case, which is ongoing just yesterday, two more classified documents were found at yet another storage place that were handed over to justice. So that's an ongoing investigation. And of course, the larger investigation of justice around January 6th and Trump's role in that. So those are the main ones as well as several other personal cases regarding kind of misconduct with the different individuals. But so there's a lot swirling around Trump right now. I will just note, however, that he's still very popular in the Republican Party. His ratings have dipped a bit, but about two thirds of Republicans, if not more, still view him favorably, and he still coming out ahead in the polls with who people want to see run in 2024. So I would say it's these legal cases are important, but he's staying above the fray for the moment. And the result in Georgia didn't affect his popularity at all. I think we'll see if that takes a hit. Again, among I would say more elite or mainstream Republicans, absolutely. Obviously, Christian walker, the Republican candidate was strongly not only backed by really elevated by Trump, even to run initially. So I do think that is a bruising for him, but again, Trump will just flip this and say, well, this is why you need me personally on the ticket. And he won't really take the blame for individuals who he backed, but who weren't him and who lost or underperformed. So again, I think the party is really going to be fracturing around this and a lot of voices want to see him out. But he's still this carry. You're very strongly about a third of the base and another third who are kind of okay with him. And what about the constitution? What does it say about somebody who's accused and possibly by that stage maybe convicted of various crimes? Can they run as president? Yet, this is so interesting Georgina, because it really would come down to the kind of court of public opinion at that point because the constitution in most cases does not bar someone from running. There's a few exceptions for that, such as treason and not kind of thing, which is one reason why many are very fixed on January 6th. But for the most part, someone very, very well could run, even if they were indicted at that point. And I think Trump is very well aware of that. I don't think that would make it very difficult for him to actually get the nomination. I think that would maybe be the final straw, but technically he could still do it. And again, his narrative of being this victim of the state and if he was doing that from the image of handcuffs or something like that would probably just drive that narrative for him. And finally, his tax returns. I mean, he fought so hard to keep those out of the public domain, but they now actually have been submitted. Could this be a little like the way that the mafia were finally caught? Could his tact return be the thing that brings him down? It's quite possible, and this was really noted about me. That was a years long effort to get the tax returns as shown and seen. And I would know even the Supreme Court did not support Trump in trying to suppress that ultimately. Yeah, it's interesting because when the calls for those started that was before all these other investigations had launched. So it would be interesting to see if they shed some new light on the investigations or open new things or if with everything else that's emerged since then if they're kind of a bit of a nothing burger. But the fact that they are available, I think, will be very useful for attorneys and those involved in these other legal cases. Julie, thank you very much, indeed, Julie Norman there. Here's what else we're keeping an eye on today. The German Chancellor Earl of Schultz says the risk of Vladimir Putin using nuclear weapons as part of Russia's war in Ukraine has decreased in response to international pressure. Meanwhile, in a televised meeting on Wednesday, mister Putin said the risk of a nuclear war was rising, but he insisted Russia had not gone murder and would not recklessly threaten to use such weapons. Google says North Korean government backed hackers used the sole Halloween crush to distribute malware to users in South Korea. The malware was embedded in Microsoft Office documents which were made to look like a government report on the tragedy that killed more than a 150 people. Google says the hacking group targets South Korean users, North Korean defectors, policymakers, journalists, and human rights activists. And The New York Times is bracing for a 24 hour walkout today by more than 1000 journalists and other employees. It would be the first strike of its kind at the newspaper in more than 40 years. Employees say they're fed up with bargaining that's dragged on since their last contract expired in March last year. This is the globalist, stated.

Very nice of him. Well, the leadership of both parties in the U.S. House are changing soon. And while Democrats have settled on their leaders from the coming year, Republicans still have a ways to go. We get the latest from WTO's Mitchell Miller today on the hill. New York congressman Hakeem Jeffries, who was unanimously elected to become the next democratic leader, says he's ready to work with every member of the party caucus. Whether you're from the north to south, the east, the west, the heartland of America, whether you're in the center, the center left. Just as progressives have sometimes been at odds with the democratic leadership, the house's top Republican, Kevin McCarthy, has been trying to address the concerns of conservatives in the house freedom caucus. Some still don't support him to become the next House speaker. But McCarthy and his allies continue to believe he'll get enough supporters when the House votes in January. Still with his election margin razor thin, a historic floor fight remains possible. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO news. Coming up after traffic and weather.

Friends of Keith you urgently request that you stop is unjust extradition. The extradition request is made in bad faith by the South Korean government. The U.S. State Department has the power to help Keith by refusing this extradition request. The apprehension of Keith is a political move by the South Korean government, blaming Keith and his entire family for the sinking of the sewell ferry has been an attempt to cover up their own duplicity in the tragedy. The South Korean government has a long history of human rights violations and connections to military dictatorships. Keith is an honest and contributing resident of the United States.

So this compensation, but will you pay interest? No, I don't think we're making any yield on the underlying tokens now. So we're not generating interest. So there will be no interest. And would you ever contribute your own personal funds to these reimbursements? Or to this compensation? My personal funds are not significant enough to make a difference to any of these distributions. You've been through some extreme highs and extreme lows in your young life.

You became, I think, the biggest crypto star in Korea, now you're probably one of the most notorious men in Korea. The South Korean government wants to arrest you. How do you feel about the direction that your life has taken? So Laura, to be honest, I think it's going to take a couple of years and some sobriety retrospect. For me to fully internalize everything that has happened. But one of the things that I want to clarify is given some of the jokes that I made on Twitter or anything like that, but it was never really about money or fame or success quite in those terms. I'm sort of like a person that likes making toys. So what I mean is I drive a lot of enjoyment from just simply tinkering with things. So Friends, for instance, like even outside of programming, I enjoy building furniture, for instance, or these days, I guess sometimes to cook. So from that perspective, I think one of the things that I hope the next few years would clarify is what happened with Tara was, it wasn't a scam. It wasn't a fraud. It was a massive market failure.

"Juliette Sully. And I'm Doug prisoner at the Bloomberg interactive broker studio in New York. We have trading now in Hong Kong and on the Chinese mainland as well, Hank's hang is down one and a half percent in the opening moments generally speaking, haven assets seem to be in favor. I'm speaking about the Japanese yen and U.S. sovereign debt. Brian Curtis will join us momentarily for a closer look at all the market action right now a few of the sours top business stories. Will Apple tap the U.S. high grade bond market today, the cell will total 5 and a half $1 billion and come in four parts, we're told the longest portion of the offering is a 40 year security, it could yield around a 150 basis points over U.S. treasuries. Apple has $60 billion in net cash on the balance sheet, but Bloomberg's Anna Rana says Apple still needs to sell bonds to buy back shares. The cost of money is so cheap, it does make sense to model it and keep it because their net cash is about 60 billion. And they spend about 85 to 90 billion in buying back stock so they do have to borrow that money. And today's sale comes during a rally in the broader credit market in December Apple received the highest possible credit rating and it's taking advantage. Well, there seems to be no shortage of scammers trying to exploit the crypto industry, and that would include North Korean fraudsters. We are told they are plagiarizing online resumes and pretending to be from other countries with a goal of getting jobs in the crypto industry, and it crypto firms. Cybersecurity researchers at Mandy and tell us the aim here is to access funds and then funnel money back to the North Korean government to support government weapons development programs. Now back in May, the U.S. government warned of a similar scheme, by the way, North Korea has consistently denied involvement in any cyber enabled theft. China's economy weakened further in July as the COVID-19 situation worsened, this according to the China beige book international. In CPB's later survey, it said China's factory output a new orders are at their weakest since mid 2020, retailers facing the brunt of the impact and revenue growth fell for a fourth straight month, borrowing by retailers rose slightly last month as companies struggled to stay in business. However, pent up demand for credit eased in manufacturing and services industries, while loan rejections jumped for services firms. 33 pounds the hours we crossed to Hong Kong Brian Curtis is looking at markets. You know, a short while ago, a lot of the price action on the equity side was somewhat muted, right? I mean, most of the price action we were getting in currencies, some of the U.S. sovereign debt I mentioned a moment ago the haven bit, but boy, is it turned around now and we are moving to the downside. Particularly you see a pretty strong reaction in Taiwan. You could expect that the Thai X is down 1.7%. And you always get a very strong reaction in Hong Kong because this is a place where a lot of investors actually resign. There's a lot of money put to work here. And so we're down 2% in the Hans index. And the Heinz tech index down more than 3%. And as you mentioned, government bonds getting a bid. And so we see the yield on the ten year down to 2.53%. But what's interesting is that the dollar is actually trading lower, whereas the yen is higher. Now we used to always look at the yen as a haven play, but it disappeared from that role for quite some time. And the dollar got a lot of strength over the past year or so, but right now with the dollar of the bloomer gallery spot index is down about two tenths of a percent. But the yen is strengthening 9 tenths of a percent up against the greenback dollar yen here, one 30 47. The Euro at one O two 81. And in terms of other equity markets, the CSI 300 is trading down 1.6% in Singapore, the straits times index is actually higher. It's up about a tenth of 1%. And the Nike also taking a tumble today off 1.3%. That's a drop of 372 points. So the U.S. China tensions are getting a lot of the blame. However, deepening concerns about a global economic slowdown are also a very big part of that. And that's something that we see playing out as we speak. That was born out a lot by the PMIs yesterday. All right, 34 and a half minutes past the hour, Juliet to you. Thank you, Brian.

"So give me an idea how did it start? Can you sort of take us back to that? Yeah, so this happened in April. I got an inbound. I actually directly to my calendar from our ATS, what's called an applicant tracking system. And that's just automated human resources software. That's John whoo. He's the head of growth at a cryptocurrency company called Aztec protocol. It provides a kind of VPN for crypto transactions to make the more private. And this past spring, he gets a job application from a guy named Bobby Sierra, who says he's from Canada. So I take a swing through the resume. It doesn't look that crazy. It's pretty solid. It looks like. The resume looks workman like some experience in crypto mining, a little gaming, and there's a cover letter. It feels like a relic of a different age, but this applicant happened to have a cover letter. I think what was really strange about the cover letter was the sign off. You know, a bunch of platitudes and then the sentence, the world will see a great result from my hands. Instead of looking forward to talking or I can't wait for the interview, this guy writes the world will see a great result from my hands. And that's like the type of thing someone with a laser cannon arm and a microchip for an eyeball would say. You know, like really deep, Bond villain I live inside a volcano. So it's safe to say that John whoo is feeling a little uneasy. Then, when the interview rolls around, Bobby Sierra apologizes and says, sorry, he can't use his camera. It doesn't seem to be working. But this person was purporting to be a capital R real person. And so to interview someone like that and not have the camera on is a huge red flag. According to Bobby's resume, he's from Canada, but his accent sounded really heavy, and John couldn't quite place it. I asked him where he was based. He said Hong Kong. So red flag number two. And then I asked him where he worked. He couldn't answer that question at all. In fact, when pushed on where he last worked, he actually muted himself for two minutes. Like he was muting the phone so he could ask someone for advice on what the correct answer was supposed to be. So when he finally came back on the line, John couldn't help but notice that it sounded like Bobby Sierra was sitting in a really busy office. There were all these other voices who also sounded like they were either in a call center or interviewing people or something that sounded like he was one of many. And then something made his heart skip a beat. He recognized the language in the background. I heard a mix of both English and Korean. I kind of freaked out a little bit and I logged off and I kind of shut my computer down and I turned to my team and I said, I think I interviewed in North Korean hacker. I'm Dina temple Reston, and this is click here. A podcast about all things cyber and intelligence. Today, the wild and woolly world of North Korea's hacking program. Turns out that weird interview was likely part of something much bigger. The North Korean government is not just trying to plant operatives in foreign crypto companies. It is set up a network of hacker hotels and other countries, and launched a slew of high profile crypto heists. All done in a bid to fund the little hermit kingdom's number one priority. Its nuclear arsenal. Stay with us..

But what do you make of of the development of afghanistan's government. Well i'm glad you mentioned the south.

And and i thought this every day is national security secretary We were never able to get a hand on their corruption. And we're never able to get a handle on the drug trade there's no doubt about that that full stop and it did Undermine and erode confidence of the afghan population in their government there. There's also no doubt about that but they aren't alone in Being a government that was That had a problem with corruption. And i thought that this last government was trying to to deal with some of those problems. It takes time sometimes through corruption. But whatever you think about the afghan government and their problems with corruption their problems with the with the drug trade. Their problems with tribalism They were far cry from the taliban which was executing women in a soccer stadium given to them by the united nations and when they were asked about this these taliban leaders they said well actually you need to give us another stadium so we can continue to execute people in this one and then we can play games in the other one. So you don't. Let's let's look at the comparative perspective. Here yes. this was an afghan government that was challenged but it wasn't the taliban and it was afghan government that tried to help us When i hear people say well you know. The afghan people obviously didn't want us there You know we see how many afghans hundreds of thousands of afghans were willing to sign on to the american effort to try to build their country a better way who were willing to give their lives to try to build their country in a better way and who. Oh by the way we're willing to help us to build counterterrorism capabilities. That made us safer. I hope when the history of this is written that we will remember that this twenty years that we bought because we were on afghan territory fighting the counterterrorism fight alongside afghans alongside allies from nato using intelligence assets that we had developed to find bin laden and kill him in pakistan that that twenty years bought us a piece that i did not think possible on september twelfth. If you had told me we weren't gonna have a big attack like september eleventh again. I would have told you you were out of your mind. And so let's not forget what this twenty years bought for us.

"A related thing is like a like steam link like absolute you access your desktop remotely have been you know sort of in the zone. And they had to amend the rules around that. I mean back way up. There is an argument to be had about whether or not there should be competing. App stores allowed. There's an argument to be had about whether or not the side loading should be allowed. But you know wherever you land on those arguments. I think it's pretty clear that whatever path apple is currently on the app store is making everybody miserable except for apple. Who's making somewhere above ten billion dollars a year on apps minimum. Bet there are some miserable people at apple over this. I bet i bet the the lawyers who are having to come up with these rules. Are you kidding me. Eighty six years from the tickets. Add letters to clauses. Oh bad they're just having a blast. Somebody i refuse. I've there's at least one person at apple. You know how i like to argue about whether or not things are computers. What the definition computer is lawyers. Get to argue about what. What an enterprise services they want nothing more than to just have spend all day getting high talking about what constitutes a difference between an enterprise service at a person to person service. I do not wanna sit in on that conversation. Okay so we mentioned south korea. We should close that circle as well. So this was the in theory. Biggest thing Although it hasn't quite happened yet which is that. The south korean government passed a bill which has not yet been signed into law. But it is expected to be that would require that major platform owners including apple and google would no longer be allowed to restrict app developers to build in payment systems. So in theory. That would require apple google to in at least in south korea to offer some sort of alternative payment method either within their app stores or outside their app stores and if they fail to comply with that law they face fines of up to three percent of their south korean revenue which is a lot. That's a lot i mean. It's not as much as thirty percent. But i don't know if that applies to hardware and software or just software but yes so google has said you know that it costs the money to maintain this store that it's going to figure out how to reflect on how to comply with this law while maintaining its model will reflect on how to comply with this law will maintaining a model supports a high quality operating system and app store. And we'll share more in the coming weeks. I mean share more in the coming weeks is like that's like i mean they made as well said it's early days with this new law but man will reflect on how to comply with us laws like man you just got smacked by an entire country. And your answer is we're gonna go like we'll think about it. I mean if the fine is only the software and the fine is up to three percent and you make thirty percent. then that doesn't quite work out. What was apple's reaction. I'm sure they were also very pleased. So apple's reaction they'd given us a statement before the law was passed. They didn't respond to requests afterwards. At least in this post on on the verge but be responsible for was they were protesting. They said it would undermine privacy protections make it difficult to manage purchase and make all the things that make the app store good less effective that app store purchases will decrease and they'll be fewer opportunities for the you know four hundred thousand plus developers in south korea who make you know trillions of korean with with apple today so they're not happy either haven't said what they're going to do or how they're going to do it. I imagine like google. They're they're probably figuring something out but again. If this does pass it would only be in south korea but it could be the sort of thing that could very much influence legislation and other countries if it does pass does force the kinds of changes that it sounds like it will. Will we get a samsung app store on the iphone. Well so that's what this is about. This is i mean. This is like an anti google bill primarily. It's also like this is about you. Could maybe use samsung pay inside the app store. That could be fun. This is like when you're checking out at the app store instead of paying through apple. Which is the payment systems. It's not the whole app store..

"In most cases in terms of what types of payment processor you use in most cases. Because i don't believe that the government's adequately understand that businesses. I don't believe they have the users best interest. I don't think the developers best interest you know because there are a lot of questions i think that apple and google bring up. There are good like google says. Look we need revenue to operate these stores on the one hand google you make revenue and other ways. You could make this a loss leader if you needed to. But it is a fair point that these are certainly not without costs and then apple points out the trust aspect and anything. That's a fair one which is to say okay if anybody can take a payment and you can make a payment through kind of method you want if a developer chooses an unsavory payment method and their payment processor gets hacked or they're doing something else unsavory. This is now taking place at the os level and the novel would have nothing that they could do. There'd be no recourse like one of the advantages of the way. The system is now is that is all in one place and there is i. Think a a safety arguments made there. It's also you know. I think negligible to be seen okay not negligible. I think. What's interesting is that. It seems like the south korean government. And they call it an anti google tax which is interesting We've been talking about this in terms of apple but you know the vast vast vast majority of the app store sales and and the payments that happen in mobile phones in south korea are on android and so google really seems to be the target here rather than apple but of course both both will be impacted but it is interesting. There seems to be this completion between the thirty percent cut which is what the company's take and saying well this is what the payment processors charge as if allowing people to use different. Payment processors will will make up the difference. And that's not true as we've discussed your payment processors.

"Additional advertising to monetize your company and it doesn't matter how that advertising is engaged. It doesn't matter if there's an inconvenient way to dig through settings disable that kind of advertising and also we should be even more critical of consumer behavior being monitored monitored in services like samsung pay. So have i have payment app on my phone that is selling off my data to advertisers to then serve me ads in the samsung pay app. That should never have been okay again. It took legislation in california for samsung to just disclose that. They had a monetary arrangement with other services through samsung. Pay and that your user data was being monetize like that. Samsung was never going to disclose that on their own. It took a law for them to say. Oh by the way you've got to opt in or you can't use samsung pay so it's a thing which is dumb so anyway. This was eventually the correct place for samsung to land. So now i'm going to be curious all the people that it's not a big deal or it's really a good that they're making ad recommendations on your actual behavior or if it was just like well it's really your fault if you even saw ads because you should never have turned them on when you were setting up your phone. I'm sure they're all going to be sort of congratulatory of this. But i think that changes the tone of their arguments whereas even samsung is walking back from this terrible business decision. I feel like now. The next thing is to pressure samsung to get rid of ads on other products like the third screen ads. I get when i'm switching inputs on my stupid expensive samsung tv which the panel is now starting to fail on. So i'm like. I think i'm four years on this tv which we spent more money on then we should have. We don't use of the samsung smart features. The server connection is now broken. it's connected to the wi fi. We've we've switched to the two point four gig in the five gig signals. We've tried to update it. We've tried plugging it in with the cable. Tv won't communicate with anything so the first thirty seconds that we turn it on. There is an inescapable pop. Up saying oh. We can't find the samsung server anymore. You need to connect to the server. We don't know what that means because we've dried connecting it to everything we can and now literally were getting after images so when you're watching a you're watching kids shows on netflix. And the next episode is getting ready to stream and you see like the main screen strength down to like a little preview window. Now it's glitch glinting in those preview boxes where they are in different streaming services so then the next episode plays and the screen is just showing this rainbow garbage in that many box in this tv can die in a fire. I hate this tv. So much. I never going to buy another samsung tv. I like anything i can do is if i needed another reason to not enjoy samsung products. From their business practices collusion potentially throttling consumer phones components. Their influence over the south korean government where they operate kind of like mafia like entity punitive. Pr that likes to chill out. Conversations on their products from entities that they deem undesirable and now they're tv is just hot garbage..

I go back on my statement australia. What's what's going on man you got you. Chuck norris Your your ozzy chuck norris. Why are you putting up with this. Where's where's the knife this. I don't know but let's hit the photo. We also learned that there was a third crocodile dundee. Yeah i've never seen any of if i have. I was a real little little data. Watch at least the first. The first is a classic. It's just a straight. it's probably haven't seen it since i was a kid. I probably should watch it again. The second one is is i. Don't even remember it so is probably gonna be you. Just skip that one but just watch the first one as for classical sense of of what it was like in the early or late eighties. Early nineties was weird. People dressed weird really weird. He is remember that from ninety. Sitcoms right how does he. Eighty one is old old. Dude yeah well. We've got john's probably from noise. He's probably healthier. And most americans maybe john. You're freetalklive jeremy. Coin from down under. Hey go ahead now. I'm calling from sydney australia. Okay yeah house. What time is it there now. You have police. Tuesday's he's not really. I'm putting pretty late. Yeah a. for effort. We've also got robbed from vermont calling rob. You're on free talk live. Hi guys how're you doing are you. Hey hey You know this Virus and everything has really made wanna noise going around the world and stuff but has been affected by north korea or south korea. And all i mean like. I never see any mask. I've never heard think come from either one of these countries. Are you asking what you're not going to get news out of north korea at all. Are you asking whether or not those countries were affected by cova. yes purportedly at least. Obviously we're not there so we can't know to what extent but yeah every government government in the world basically with few exceptions used this to seize more power over there. People and both south and north korea are not the exceptions crow. Okay 'cause it's never been on the news or anything was never reported on uses very difficult to find from north korea. The only news so world's gets is directly from the north korean government. So it's not reliable but there's very little immigration into north korea so there's very little prospect for the for covert nineteen to actually make his way to north korea. It probably did. It probably killed some people. It probably hospitalized people and it probably caused a large number of healthy people to get a virus. That did not do anything to them. As of august sixth south korea has extended their toughest covert nineteen restrictions for another two weeks. The he's maximum level of restrictions. So same crap going on there in south korea and north korea. We don't know much about. But i've heard that they've got you know whatever. Bs going on there well. North korea had that bs before kovic it so it wouldn't surprise me at all but there is certainly news about these places like me south korea. At least you're just not going to find anything on north korea. Regret everything from. North korea is government news and. That's all straight propaganda. It's really fascinating to me. How the north korean government healthy chinese governments have managed to control so much of what their people know. And don't know like i don't know i can't convey it but people from these countries who fled them have written books about. It's about their experiences. And it's it's alarming when they control all of the information that you get about the world of what they can convince you of and you won't know that they convinced you of anything. According to let's see here the national interest national interest dot org north korea continues to claim zero corona virus cases though they were scheduled to receive nearly two million doses of the astrazeneca vaccine though negotiations. Stalled at some point. I have absolutely no reason to doubt. North korea's zero covert nineteen cases. Which apparently being facetious of apparently new zealand claimed they had zero cases before last week. And i don't really have any reason to believe them either. I mean there were probably plenty like you pointed out the first guy who was infected here. The fifty eight year old who wasn't vaccinated. He called it from somewhere So by definition he cannot be the first cova nineteen case his wife. His wife was vaccinated. That's right right. She could have been carrying it. What does she was the first case. Oh that's the thing. There could have been a bunch of people carrying it but they never got sick so maybe a bunch of people. They're just never got tested because they weren't sick. They've had it for months and then all of a sudden this guy you know he he he got a cough or whatever and so he got. He got a test that he's feeling sorry for himself. Now while the question is where was the rest of the test from this from six seven months. What if why would it. Why would a healthy person get tested. Well okay now. Here's another thing to look at if they're saying only twenty percent of the new zealand so this is official number twenty percent of the new zealand populace has the vaccine that suggests that you've got a large percentage of the populace. Just they're not interested in this. They don't wanna go and get the backseat a positive case in six months of therefore they're not likely to wanna get tested either right like i don't want like if i come down with something. I'm not going to go get a test. I'm going to beat it or i'm going to die you know and i'm probably going to beat it so and it's not and if you don't beat. It is not going to matter to you whether it was pneumonia or covert nineteen. So i suspect there's if if eighty percent of new zealand isn't getting the vaccine probably close to eighty percent of them. They don't care if they get sick. Which would suggest that a lot of new zealanders even if they were sick. Probably didn't go get tested Because i wouldn't either well it'd be why they have zero cases 'cause they have probably look if you get tested and you come out positive country nail in the head right there. I think you hit it. That's why the hell did they know this ladies and power dictator and not the last thing we want to do is get get under her feathers down this fifty eight year old. Who's the one case that kicked all this off now. Obviously it's not his fault with the governor. Pat hope is friends are given a hard time. Looked sammy ulli oak. You're locked the whole country down man we hate. We're not you're not. You're up at a bowling team yet. Well things aren't much better australia. And but it's okay. The new.

Don't feel like any commercial. Passenger airlines should be figuring that out. I don't think they're going t- us passengers them but like i said i don't think they're going to be using some was with passengers on it. I don't think it's going to be like soul to los angeles and by the way we're gonna circle third theon rocket go but i mean it. Did they test the airline to do the study to figure out if this is something you can do with. Its seven four seconds. It's no longer using the i know. Yes yes it's a you have some for sevens. We would like to use a few of them to test this out. Let's see if it's feasible. And you have the engineering prowess in order to do this so please help us understand whether or not this is something. That is both possible ahead wise. We know it's possible. Is it wise. Is it something that we should be doing. Okay well seven four. Seven is a versatile aircraft. I'm sure they could figure something out in the us. Military strapped giant laser to the nose of what blow up missiles. Yeah anything is possible that and what is now. What is it now orbital. At k which before was was racy. I forget which defense contractor was but the l. ten eleven that has the market. So i mean this is nothing new. It's just i guess bigger and possibly better it'll be interesting to see.

South Korea Faces Third Wave Of Coronavirus

"South Korea, one of the most successful countries and fighting the pandemic is doing worse now, case numbers are growing during a third wave of infections. NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports on the debate over how to respond. For the past week, South Korea has tried to discourage year and revelry by banning gatherings of more than four people and shutting down ski resorts and tourist spots. But new case numbers and deaths remain stubbornly and or near record highs. Those new infection highs of around 1000 today in a country of more than 50 million are, Of course, nowhere near is bad is the US, nor are they as good as save New Zealand or Taiwan. Dr Kim Woo ju and infectious disease expert at Korea University's Good. A hospital in Seoul recalls that when the first wave of infections hit in February, fear of a new and unfamiliar virus gripped South Koreans, Ah Kitana. Sarah's got so scared. They started wearing masks and stopped going outside even before the government mandated it. But as the pandemic were on, people loosened up and mobility went up. Meanwhile, the government listen to a crescendo of voices of exhausted citizens and struggling businesses. The government hesitated to raise the social distancing level when it should have and was too fast to downgrade it when it shouldn't have. Kim argues that the government has got it backwards. It's not the counter measures that are hurting the economy. It's the pandemic. Experts also point out that the third wave is going to be tougher to crush than the first two. This time. There are more undetected community transmissions, more smaller clusters of infections. China and me, a respiratory disease specialist at equal Women's University in Seoul, says South Korea relied on testing and contact tracing to beat the first two waves. But this time that won't be enough, she says, would you guys how does have a right to take that and that you can only cut the chain of transmission if we cut social activity? The government won praise early on by putting health authorities and experts firmly in charge of the pandemic response. But John says this has changed socially with their table got him over there we go in there. Aside From a few exceptions, most medical experts have been calling on the government to raise social distancing restrictions and warning that hospitals are under a lot of strain E few that our opinions are not reflected very well in the government's decisions. South Korea's government denies that there's any daylight between politicians and experts. Or that it's gone soft on the virus. Speaking on December, 22nd Health Ministry spokesperson Sonia Hong Lei acknowledged that some people are calling for raising restrictions to the maximum. Could you two get engaged with only days ago? Who does those calls are understandable, he said. But regarding occasional claims that the government has violated his own criteria for raising restrictions, he added, We've never done that. Just before Christmas. U. S troops stationed here got the country's first coronavirus vaccinations. Most South Koreans won't start getting theirs until February. The government insists there's no delay. But at Korea University Hospital Doctor Kim Woo ju says the government seems to have dropped the ball. E don't understand why the South Korean government didn't start actively negotiating advanced purchase agreements until November. The government announced Thursday that it's secured more than enough vaccines for his population. And, according to a recent poll, nearly 90% say they'll take the shot.

Tensions rise after North Korea blows up liaison office

"On Tuesday north. Korea blew up a joint liaison office on its own territory. Clear the border with south. Korea this comes as relations on the peninsula have deteriorated exacerbated by cross-border propaganda, floated into the country from the south. Young has cut all communication with soul, and threatened to move troops back into the boards own the South Korean. Unification Minister says he takes full responsibility for the worsening relations and has offered his resignation well. Joining me on the line from Seoul is Timothy. Martin. WHO's The Wall Street? Journal correspondent in the city. Tim, wondering about to two thousand eighteen. There was a period of intense negotiation between the two careers. So what went wrong? Well, yeah, that was the apex of this modern approach meant on the Korean Peninsula. South Korean President Moon jae-in met with conjunction three times that year everything seemed to be moving in the right direction, but many of us can recall what happened in Illinois. last February. US and North Korea did not reach a deal on nuclear talks, and basically it's been on a downward slope since then. North Korea had basically ignored South Korea offer much of the past eighteen months. Sort of placing Moon in south, Korea and the timeout corner but in recent weeks. Kill young has reemerged quite angry. Over variety of issues and now they've taken action. So why did young blow up the Liaison Office? It was empty, so it was clearly only a symbolic move, but doesn't mean at least in the eyes of the north at any hope of future collaboration is over. Metaphor call statement to make about their belief of what Korean relations are at the moment literally sending it back to Ground Zero I, think the. Target of this is twofold one the the spokesperson. If you will for this anti South Korean campaign and violence, we saw at the Liaison Office was headed by. Jones Sister Kim Young. Has Risen in prominence within the regime. This allows her image her brand to rise within the regime. In among the North Korean people I think it also sends a broader message to South Korea. about its displeasure with where. economic assistance sanctions relief any type of deal making with the US, the north likes to to lean on south. Korea to try and do. It's bidding and I think what we saw earlier in this week is expressing some of that frustration. So what are the latest military developments from the north? They're coming in almost by the hour we've seen North Korea cutoff official communication's the hotlines with South Korea of this. We have liaison office with Korea has moved some troops closer to the border, and into some civilian posts that had been vacated as part of this twenty eighteen run-up in diplomacy between Moonen kin us, so we're seeing some Increase, heated rhetoric. From state media on North, Korea saying increasingly medicine things day by day. So how has the South responded? What's the line from moon? Yesterday we saw pretty startling about-face from the mood administration. loon in the South Korean government had been. Out stomaching the northwest behavior and tried to play the role pacifier. but yesterday they finally had enough. The North had been antagonizing them. For weeks and months, and so yeah, we saw the presidential Blue House come out and call at some of the state media remarks, rude and Ignorant The military South Korean, military say. If if the Kim regime takes any type of military action, there will be a price to pay. this has been. This is quite a stark shift in the tone from South Korean side. And what about Washington chump has skin in the game, but also has his own problems now. Is that creating a window of opportunity for Pyongyang? I think right now. From widely seen that is priorities. Is Birds do not include North Korea I think if you take a much broader view, North Korea still has tested a nuclear weapon have not launched an ICBM into the skies. That's the red line for the trump administration, so to a certain extent, this status quo where Korea's not conducting type of long range weapons. Testing, There is some comfort with that from Washington's perspective, but again for both sides, trump and Kim. Third they might only have five months or so left to to deal. Make with each other so i. think what we're seeing in terms of inter-korean tensions. This could be part of a much broader play to try and move North Korea higher up the priority list in the White House.
