Did however, cost about one point, five, billion euros. The majority of which did come from. China. So there's been a little bit of tension. Surrounding, not just purely because of the fact that Pakistan as as a country has built up. Billions tens of billions of euro, worth of debt to China as part of its belt and wrote an issue. But if we're just going to focus on the project pretty good win for the city for an amazing if all of these developing nations need to kind.

Pakistan International Airlines flight 8303 Crash Data

"Let's start first with the Pakistan International Airlines crash that crashed on Friday the day that the last podcast came out so the twenty second of May early morning our time. About midday in Karachi, the aircraft had flown from Lahore and was bound for Karachi and conducted one approach, and then attempted to go around and crashed during. That attempted go around the information. The data that we've received from the aircraft was not aid. ESP, so unfortunately, there's no bazillion information included, but we did get a lot of extended mode s data from the aircraft, so that has provided a great deal of incites, things like altitude indicated airspeed, true airspeed, vertical rates, and things like that from everything I've seen. This just didn't look good. Yes, so we the authorities and I think that the French have taken the lead on the so far have recovered both the flight data recorder in the cockpit. Voice Recorder and have taken them back to France. They transported it I believe in Eighth HR. Thirty eight hundred neo yet is an interesting little bit of information. Do it that as you will. But they transported that back to believed to loosen, they were able to successfully download the contents of both recorders. which if you've seen the pictures of those is always. that. They're able to get anything off them because they look absolutely terrible I mean they they are. They're literally designed to be crashproof at, but it's always amazing that they really are in almost every circumstance now readable, and that's no exception in this case, but the data that was pulled from the extended. Mona's painted a not so great picture. They came in fast. They came in steep. It was not a stable approach. That's what the data is telling us. We're not making any conclusions, but the initial data does not look very comforting that. I'll leave it at that. We can say that for sure. The indicated airspeed Four for the aircraft on the first approach. Did Not. Go below two hundred dots on the first approach, and only went below two hundred knots when the aircraft was already conducting its go round after the go around was initiated, the aircraft lost power in the engines, and that is what led to. The that that's the direct would directly resulted in the crash. There's evidence based on markings on the runway. The aircraft did in fact touched the runway without its gear down, but we're still waiting for all sorts of. Additional data from the flight data recorder to to really understand what happened. Obviously, this is like any crash. Investigation will take a significant amount of time. And there won't be a final report for for. We'll say a year or so, but a preliminary report should be forthcoming in. Hopefully we'll learn more there. Yup So we'll say has always say we'll keep you updated as we hear am. I believe we'll have some sort of initial fact-finding report within the next week I. Think I think that's what they've said didn't it will see what happens at that point? Interesting to know some some of the finer details, hopefully that reporters issued speaking of keeping updated on things that happened something we talked about I. Don't know how many episodes ago, but this was in twenty, eighteen, the very serious incident with a session airlines, a three nineteen, where the first officer was rather severely injured because the right windscreen. Disintegrated came out, and and the the first officer was partially sucked out of the aircraft. That's a bad day. was a very bad day. And the final report by the safety branch of the Chinese. Aviation Commission. came out this week, and so the final investigation pointed to the likely cause as a long chain. Of tiny things going wrong that led to the windscreen shattering. So there's a power supply wire that runs underneath the windscreen to to keep the windscreen. To supply power to the windscreen heaters. And there had been a gap opening up that allowed water vapor to enter the wire. You know eventually corroded because of the the water, and so there was a power. Being arked off of that and the temperature caused the. Eventual rupture of glass when that enough the pressure changes enough and the window blows out and the first officer also blows out in this particular case, a partially bows out. Yeah, so was managed to stay mostly in the aircraft. And received medical attention when when they landed will link to the report though it. Yet good luck reading it. If you don't Speak Mandarin, you might have some trouble reading. We're going to try and track down in English English translation to put showed to if possible, but will link to to report nonetheless so yeah. We've always talked about you know. It's always a chain of things. It's never just one thing that causes an accident in the certainly was another example of that.

"Is coming out stories about cost about one of the most important conversations of your life. I'm Emma Gos- well top two from Britain's first out Muslim track queen a safer Lahore. This is a good example of someone coming out twice. A safer came out I as a gay man and then later as a trans woman. You'll have to excuse a bit of background noise in this interview. We were in central London and this particular. Turkish restaurant was the quietest place that we could find near. Leicester Square by didn't always believed I was female. I When I hit puberty I kinda realize I was attracted to boys and I guess the time because like trans visibility was so low. I mean I go there. I'm chatting about like the late ninety. S I didn't see any trans people around me born and bred London. So I do not see Trans people around me so gay. People just assumed that I was gay. And did you articulate it to anybody? Then those people that you were gay. Did you ever commit your family's Life Gordon? I obviously like I'm from British Muslim background My parents are from Pakistan. And I'm proud of those identities but when I was growing up I felt really conflicted and I felt like I couldn't be myself and coming out was good. It was never on the table. It was one thing that I don't think I would have. I feel the time I'd never have the courage to tell my parents about me. Being who I am boy what. What did you feel the reaction would be? I think at the time I just assumed that they wouldn't understand. They wouldn't understand because Number one in like my mother languages of Job Like there's no word for gay Although I knew of at the time you obviously know that you know the word gay exists the word lesbian bisexual but in my own languages I have no idea how to say it and the other thing I thought obviously was religion would play a part of growing up inherently knew that it was wrong to be gay but I didn't know why but I just knew it was wrong. Say I just kind of didn't tell anyone so were you actively going to the mosque researching involved in pro. Yes I mean throughout my life. I've I wouldn't class myself. As someone who's like staunch by the book Muslim many people would consider me very bad in the sense that you know. I don't pray five times a day. I'm lucky if I make the the mosque. Once a week fostering down I give to charity. I believe in Gods but many people would consider me quite a liberal Muslim. Shall we say so as a child who busy going to the most can not having this conversation presumably some point you came around and you know what I've got the strength and this is the right time to hardshell. Ticky light it until more star gay. Yeah and I'll tell you exactly when it was so I sort of came out in two stages as gay one was when my younger sister found my diary I was sixteen. She was ten and she came to me and she said look. I know I've been reading a diary and I was like she had found out. I tell me about sister really sneak into my room but yes. She basically kind of confirmed somebody known minds. I live shows. I look. I'm cool with it. Just turns out MOM and dad because they're not going to understand that and because a lot of trouble so Kensington myself and it was only when I was like twenty two twenty three and I was at university. And that's when I kind of came out and all hell broke loose. And what's so? Obviously my mom and dad did not understand what it was to be gay I thought maybe there was something you know something wrong with me sexually in the sense that maybe. I don't know I remember. My Dad asking me was. Is there anything wrong with your quin or something or having right but I am discussing so many like personal things with your mom and dad is like cranes sit down conversation in the front room talk in the front room in my bedroom? It was me my mom and my dad. I don't think they wanted anyone else to hear what was going on. But they ended up basically taking me to like the local. Gp IN THEIR WORLD. They thought okay. There is something medically wrong here. Obviously like the doctor who again was from an Asian background in his sixties really stood up for me and he said look You know there's nothing that I can prescribe your son and I understand the struggles and the challenges around like culture and religion. But this is something you're going to have to deal with as family so I was then taken to the mosque and I ended up discussing so many things with my mom including like though a few things on the table one was celibacy which was never going to happen. I mean that boy I mean I was not going to tell my folks and my community that I wasn't a virgin but I wasn't but you actually discussed this with the Emma Lee. Yeah I mean Celibacy was quiet. It was like if you remain Saliba and you know you don't have same sex relationships you'll be fine. You know that was. That was never ever going to happen. The second thing that was really put on the table was marriage to a female. And the idea that if you marry then it will kill you like. Oh you haven't had sex with a woman once you're married and you have sex and you have. Children is Kinda like that side of you. Will you'll forget side of you like it. Won't it won't have happened so you must have felt very isolated insensitive. Nobody understood what you really go. Through a yeah. I felt super isolated. I mean my gay friends did not really understand. They will allow you just reject. Until why don't you just leave family and my Muslim friends obviously did not really know about me. I mean I I was living like double life and under that pressure at the time of sort of coming out. I felt like a really dark depression on. I ended up agreeing to like Marriage to like my first cousin in Pakistan and I was in that engagement for good six months. Did you meet this play around my cousin like when I was young on on frequent trips to Pakistan there was a period of my life like in my early teenage years. I lived him back some for for years. So you know I knew her and We were always good friends but you know when this whole she bang happened. It kind of felt like into really dog depression. I knew it was only when you know I I was put in touch with like lgbt charities in London where I began getting counseling. I'm where I began getting support I began meeting other gay Muslims and other LGBT Asian people. And I kid you not emma up until that point I really believed I was the only Asian Games village really really really I did. And that's a hard place to be really really hard because I kind of like felt like I was like a soldier at the time. Battening everything on my own. And you can't like he contact all these things on your own all these issues and it's only when I kind of felt like okay. I've found my people I've found my tribe. I went back to like my mom and dad and I said look. I'm not going through with this. I'm definitely gay. You know I'm not going to be forced into marriage to my female cousin and although you know my mom and dad will okay fine. There's nothing we can. No one can be forced to do this. It did Craig quite rift in the family because my first cousin is such a close relationship and stop me like going to Pakistan for such a long time because I was kind of a bit of a bit scared ashamed a bit like why did I you know why did I do that. Did she. Accept it did her family except in the end at the time but years later like you know one side come out and once I'd gone once I'd like established a successful career once I was out out to the world and once I went back to Pakistan like a good ten years after the incident they understood. Then I mean now. I've I've I've made amends with my cousin in Pakistan. She's going to marry someone else.

Turkish police move to stop Greece pushing migrants back

"And this is the sound of desperation at the border between Turkey and Greece all you're hearing migrants were stranded pawns in a political standoff thousands of people have traveled there hoping to cross into mainland Europe after Turkey's government said that they would no longer blocked the border but they're being met with resistance from Greek authorities reporter during scaring has been talking with these migrants and she joins us from near the border thanks for being with us what are you saying thanks Rachel the border itself is close to press but what we're seeing what we've seen this week is people getting on buses from instable from elsewhere and they're dropped basically in a corn field about a kilometer from the border and they're told to walk they're being pushed back once they get to Greece by a Greek police who are using tear gas we've heard reports of live rounds and that's even though the Greek government is denying this but this is possible because Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has told the Turkish border guard to stand down and to not stop anyone from leaving for Europe so you've been talking with some of the migrants what are they telling you they're telling me some the stories of desperation I mean for the most part people are going because this is their last option Turkey's economy is faltering and policies towards foreigners have become more strict over the past years here's one father I met his name is Wally Muhammad he he's from Afghanistan and he shows me his two year old son's eyes at their bright red from what he says was being tear gassed at the border here's what he said but anyway you know hole but made a few lucky guy in Danish yeah he's speaking in dari and he's telling the translator that I'm working with that he's been living in Turkey for without papers for two and a half years eking out a living and he says he has no future when he heard erred once announcement about opening the border he used his last savings to get his family there's eighteen people and not to the border and other stock they had no idea what they were getting into so there are people like like Wally who are stock but have has anyone been able to cross the border yes some do make it it's hard to tell how many a Turkey definitely wants us to believe that a lot of people are going and Greece says not so much what we're told is that when people do cross either loaded onto buses and dropped back off on the Turkish side sometimes it's even more than that and that one group camping out by a river it that acts as the border between Greece and Turkey and they've actually gotten over and when they made it to Greece they were picked up by police stripped down to their underwear they said they were beaten and then driven back to Turkey something less I mean he's from Pakistan he says his mother had to wire money from Lahore so they could get clothing and get back on their feet here's what he said I'm a visual the real truth the cashier who I. T. ject because she gets and he's saying that Turkish organizations are coming by with T. and donations and encouraging them to stay saying the border will open so he's planning to keep trying even if it takes a month while so I mean what are you hearing how likely is it that the border will open and went I mean I get that question from migrants all the time and there's honestly no indication that it's going to happen Turkey and the U. struck this deal in twenty sixteen where it that you would pay Turkey to stop migrants from reaching Europe and they would give them money for programming in Turkey but Turkey claims he didn't hold up their part of the deal and last week Turkish soldier suffered heavy casualties in Syria everyone knows this is the one car he can play to get Europe to listen threaten them with human beings so you has dispatched delegations to Ankara to try and persuade everyone to reinforce the border but in the meantime it's creating a lot of confusion and false hope for a lot of desperate people who scare in reporting or the Turkey Greece border thank you so much

U.S.-Iranian tensions surge after Trump-directed airstrike kills top military leader

"When president trump ordered the drone strike that killed an Iranian military leader it cost most members of Congress by surprise presidents normally brief senior lawmakers of both parties but by all accounts that didn't happen to Ron has now promised to retaliate for the execution of general Qassem Soleimani the US says it's sending thousands more troops to the region joining us now is congressman walking Castro Democrat from Texas he serves on the house foreign affairs committee welcome congressman thank you good to be with you yesterday the administration formally notified Congress about this attack are you satisfied no not at all the president should have notified Congress before taking this action sure consulted with congressional leaders before taking such a dramatic step and having a very high ranking official in the Iranian government killed and knowing that this would escalate probably in the war what more would you like to know from the White House well you know there's the old adage in politics that you trust but verify but Donald Trump as president is literally told thousands of large so with this president and this administration we have to verify and then perhaps trust so we need to see as members of Congress what intelligence they were dealing with when they made this decision that's the first thing but second Congress will very likely take action to limit the president's ability to find any kind of war with Iran Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has asked lawmakers to hear the facts before passing judgement why not hold off before criticizing president trump Smith well because it the president's conducted his foreign policy are very chaotic in a radical way sometimes you'll logical way and in this case in a dangerous way so it's not a situation where the president makes any kind of dramatic action what he wants and then tells Congress it's got to be the other way around and what about this claim from the trump administration that there was a credible threat of attacks on US targets that justified the killing of still money have you seen any evidence of that I have not and Congress has not been offered any evidence or increasing about that to date of perhaps that will come up but again that's where the president's track record comes into play because this administration has literally told so many falsehoods so many lies and because the American people feel like they were duped into the Iraq war that becomes very problematic it makes it very hard to trust the district president the president says he has the power to take out terrorists and Congress has done nothing to take back that power you mentioned limiting funding perhaps but until Congress is willing to pass the war powers act to restrain the president what other options are there well the good congressman take going for example one thing your math that is not be done in about eighteen years out and quite honestly Congress has been on the sidelines of making decisions about war and it has put itself on the sidelines by not taking action if your call in twenty thirteen it on August the twenty thirteen September twenty thirteen president Obama said the proposed a year left to the Congress to take up and Congress didn't take it out and I think a lot of that has to do with politicians being very shy about taking positions or the use of military force because it can come back those decisions could come back to hurt people's political careers the way they have around the Iraq war but Congress has to be able to take a position and get off the sidelines we owe that to the American people but the president that the American people to inform Congress and inform Americans about what a story you're a member of the subcommittee on investigations will you be looking to investigate the president's decision to take out general so the money well I mean it's still early to tell whether they would beat mastication for the first of many of the subcommittee perhaps the whole committee will certainly have hearings on that to assess the situation to find out what happened okay but in terms of the investigation I'll have to see how the facts of that's congressman Joaquin Castro Democrat from Texas congressman thanks so much for joining us thank you the Pakistani city of Lahore has some of the world's worst air pollution Amnesty International calls it a violation of the human rights of every resident of the city for years the government downplayed the extent of the problem but now its citizens are pushing back including some so called scary mobs as NPR's DHEA how deep reports a

News I'm Rachel Martin and I'm Noel king good. Morning President Trump has been promising that his economic policies are going to launch our economy into. Overdrive he's even predicted that the country will achieve about twice the growth rate of recent years up around four, percent sustained annual. Growth, now many economists think we may actually see a blockbuster growth rate like this when we get the latest reading on the gross domestic product or GDP later this morning NPR's Chris Arnold has been following all of this joins us. Now, hi, Chris good. Morning, well all. Right so why is this number so? Important Well a strong number. Coming right now if it's up well above free percents annual. Growth that would show that. The economy is stronger than. It's been in at least a few years and there's also been some fanfare around this the president was out. Yesterday saying I'm expecting a big number his Treasury Secretary was at a few weeks ago saying this is going. To be a big number so there is some anticipation and. Like you said a lot of. Economists that the stars of kind of aligned here. Of the past few months and we very well may see a very impressive number in Shepardson. Is the chief economist with pantheon macroeconomics he's anticipating a number of above four and a half percent that would, be very big. Here's, how he explains it what's really happened here is a convergence of favorable factors which sometimes happens in any given quarter anything can happen and it just means that all the major components of GDP so that consumption business spending government. Spending, foreign, trades all. Of, those things. Together have gone in the right direction Of course the bigger question is how long can things keep moving in the right direction back quickly. Right okay so when you talk to a. Communist what do they say about, that that's the big question. Of course if the US economy really did of double, and growth from two percent to four percent. That might sound like a. Small change but it's, really it would be huge as they say I mean it would mean higher livers day living, standards for many Americans higher wages better public services as the government rate did more taxes but don't get. Too excited about this because most economists do not expect that. To happen pass this quarter. Certainly growth not at four. Percents is deeply disappointing why don't they expect more good news a bunch of factors are involved in this report. That are sort of one offs just one example this there's there's this kind of perverse situation where we're in. This trade fight with China so ahead of tariffs going into Effect on, soybeans. China but tons and tons of soybeans. I mean, so many soybeans that actually move the scale on our overall economic growth but now that. The. Tariffs. Are in effect that's going to reverse, right or we're gonna have a? Lot fewer if any. Soybeans going, to China so that's gonna be a drag instead of a boost and several other factors, like that that that just mean that, this is probably not going to be repeated and and. What about, the tax cut that was passed by Republicans is that contributing, here it does look like it's giving a boost to consumer spending, but the biggest impact from that happens right or happened right when people started seeing these. Boost to their. Paychecks so, that's already happened we're not going to. Be getting a big raise in our. Pay month after month after month so we've probably seen the big the big head. From the big boost, from, that in growth so tax cuts one time distortions like the soybeans economists I, talked to said this past quarter Was like.
