"I remember when my daughter was first. Born and throughout labor sort of reflecting on motherhood and daughters and mother daughter relationships. And i remember really being aware of the fact that my mom had given birth to me away from her mother away from her family in quite isolated circumstances without any english language skills without resources without independent financial security and without a supportive husband. So i remember being really aware of how i selected. She must have felt. And i felt some of that isolation myself because even though i did have support and i did have a load of privilege and access to information networks and things like that. I really felt the isolation of being away from my mother of being separated from her knowledge of wanting her advice over. Anyone else says. Because that's the that's the person who'd got an meese or this phase of my life through my infancy and he seemed that only what she had to say would be authoritative about what i should do. And so it was really hard navigating having a newborn going through all these grave and experiencing these huge sense of loss at the same time and feeling like i was going through all these experiences that my mom had herself and feeling connected with her.

"See him as an abusive or violent person. Even at times they fights would get quite aggressive. He would display aggression but it wasn't in the sense of punching her or hitting her so it didn't quite translate in my mind as a child as being violent and it wasn't until again further down the track. When i developed hindsight and the language of abuse that i was able to say how violence can actually bay through threat and intimidation and coercion not necessarily always physical altercation. Did you confide in you at all. That she was afraid. Fuel your father or afraid what might happen if she ended the relationship. Yes she did. So there were a few as i was growing up where my mom would express fee anxiety around leaving the relationship anxiety about even mentioning that she wanted to get a divorce so it was a very gradual purchase for her to begin to expressed her desire to leave the relationship or in fact she usually expressed as a desire for change. She wanted him to be better. She wanted things to be better at higher. She did share with me and i think as her oldest daughter. She confided in me in ways that she hadn't confided in the papal. I remember her sharing quite concerning stories. We've made that would have been red flags had i had. I had the maturity in the to really see them. As such as i was a teenager she began to disclose more and more of the concerning or alarming behaviors that she'd observed in my dad the way he'd made her feel And as time went by and she was also getting an education and becoming a counselor and booting up her earning literacy. She began to describe his behavior as controlling as gus sliding and she did share with me. Some really confusing and concerning things that he had done that i kind of put away. Didn't really know how to navigate those conversations or what kinds of questions. I should ask as follow up..

"Layla Mohammed Mo Kelly. Here with you. The Olympics are almost here, and there's more controversy. In advance of it. Then I think I've remembered in many, many decades. As a matter of fact, a lot of controversy. Yeah, let's start with chef Cary Richardson. I mean, everyone knows the story by now, you know, testing positive for marijuana, and so she will be out of the 100 M dash. She's such a talented runner. I mean, this was her moment could have been. It could have been her moment. We know the International Olympic Committee. They're not going to Change their mind. They're just not us Anti Doping agency. They did this not going to change their mind at this point. This petition right now on move on dot org is asking to sign this petition to let her run nearly 500,000 signatures. The goal is 500,000. It's at 4 99 409. That's my problem with these petitions. They wrongly present the idea that if you just sign a petition somewhere that that's going to affect change, be a legislative be an Olympic. What have you is just a petition. And that's what I want people to understand. If you were to conversations, there's the conversation of marijuana. Is it an antiquated rules? Should it be changed for the purpose of Olympic competition? Let's have that discussion. But if you're gonna change rules and guidelines, you got to do it before the Olympics Well before. Right. And so at this point, if you know how how the Olympics work, they're just they're not going to change their mind. They're just not On this or any other things that are up for discussion. Not because everyone else has been competing with those same rules. You're going to say Wait a minute. You're gonna make an allowance for her weeks before the Olympics and I've been training this full time and been tested. Does it suck? Yes, is the rule old, especially if it's if marijuana is legal? Where was she? An Oregon. However, she if marijuana is legal, Yeah, it's old, but they're not going to do it today, but it's also it's about competition. And marijuana is not about what you do in your private life. It's about having a drug free competition. Let's not forget marijuana mass. Ped use mass steroid use, and it also is a pain dampener. If you want to train and recover, it helps in that regard, So it's not just performance neutral, and she had said that she used it as a way to cope with her mother's death. Which occurred a few days before the Olympic trials. I hate to see her miss out on this 100 M Dash. This was her moment to prove She's the fastest in the world. And, um, it sucks. I'm sympathetic to her. Yeah, it sucks. But but they're going to were positive move forward and say Nope, not happening. Not changing. So here's the other story. Speaking of the Olympics, why is that the Catholic on only for men? Uh huh. Don't have a good answer for that. It's a good question. I don't know. But there's no good reason. I mean, obviously, it must be steeped in chauvinism. I no pun intended. I was like, Is that a punch? People chase? Yeah, guy. Uh, but there was a movement that, uh, Jordan Gray, who wants to bring a woman's decathlon to the Olympics? Let women to Cath Alon. Nearing 20,000 petition signatures in favour of adding the event to the Olympic Games in the name of gender equality and track and field, which I don't have an issue with that. It makes no sense. Talk about antiquated. There's no reason why the decathlon, be it a javelin throw. What have you or hammer or whatever steeplechase Is somehow reserve for only men. It just makes no sense, hopefully moving forward. I mean, this is I think it's a valid point. They can compete in other things that just can't compete in this. Hopefully moving forward. They can make this happen. Uh, but think about it. The the events individually. The 110 M hurdles, the long jump, high jump pole vault. This was throw shot Put Javelin, Uh, with the exception? No, including the javelin. There are Women equivalent events individually. Just not collectively for the decathlon. Weird, right? I didn't know I didn't know this was actually a thing. But you mentioned the shot Put and discus, So I don't know if you were involved in track and fill in your younger years. I was up until, like, high school. And after that I was too slow. So I was the person in high school because I was tall. Everyone wanted me to do everything you know. I've been 59. You're still tall. I've been 59 since I was like two. And my head was the same size. It just kind of grew into it had this big head and I'm like 59. I digress. But I did shot putting discus in high school because I played basketball. Another one of those things that was thrown into in junior high because I was tall wasn't any good at first. Still not that great, but I could rebound and block shots. I was valuable. And so in high school, I go to play high school basketball. And in the off season we all did. You had two people. Even at volleyball. They did tracks I did track. Not because I could do like 100 M Dash, but because I could go hang out over with the shot putting discus people. I was actually kind of decent. I don't know if I ever placed in anything. I can't remember. I filled in for the hurdles once. And I think I came in third place. Um, but Yeah, I did shot put in this because I don't know if I did it right. I felt like I was on the team because I was just on the team. I doubt that you seem to be pretty athletically talented. You're just obviously track and field as a spring sports, So it's not Getting in the way of basketball this condition that's what it was. We would run, you know, condition every run, run laps, run one miles and stuff to warm up. And so we had to do something in the off season. So I did, uh, track and field and Yeah, I was part of the team with shot Put and discus. But let's connect these stories. I might have a picture for you Keep talking about just texted me Some pictures recently. Go ahead. I'm listening. But let's connect these stories. So if you're going to include that the Kathlyn for women You start now you start moving forward. And then maybe for the 2024 games of the 2028 games. Oh, my goodness. There's a picture of you doing the shot, but you know you gotta You have to put that on Instagram. Yeah, I know. I don't know if I was any good. It doesn't matter. You see my form and this is when I played basketball. Had I had the Holly Berry short hair cutting in high school. Look at you. Well, don't look like that. Because that girl you're looking at his old movie girl of 17. Please stop. Not like I'm just saying, like version, okay? Now you gotta make it weird.

We're online and do not listen to news about it on radio or television. The court expects it will take up to three weeks to seat a jury.

Maybe ever and her event coming up tomorrow night. it's being called superwomen. Some are also calling it. Her story play on history. But i need you to explain to me. What exactly it is that makes all of this so historic well. It's a couple of things. Pablo i is. This clarisa shields is the headliner on a pay per view card and there hasn't been a women's fight. Headlining a paper view card. In twenty years. We're talking last time it happened. Was layla alley and jackie. Frazier light and I don't think anyone listening to this.

This is a car completely full of women's fights there's four fights on the card and this is going to be friday in her hometown of flint michigan in front of a little under. Maybe two hundred fans because that's what michigan is allowing at this point in this audience is going to have to come through paper view and this is again for classes. Shields and for promoter mostly because this hasn't been done before so there's no metrics on this there is no read on buys would be good or bad all of this is her taking a big bet on herself and who should be fighting. She's fighting marie eve to care who is also undefeated and they feel like. It's going to be one of the best fight in women's boxing this year and probably the best fight. They could have made for clarisa shields. And that's one of the challenges. Foreclosure shields right is. She is so good that it's tough to find opponents that are worthy of are very similar in some ways to. What can alvarez going through on the men's side if you watch that fight on saturday night because they are most just dominant so there are a lot of ingredients their them going to bite into but first off. When was the last time we even saw clarisa shields in the ring so the last time we saw her was january twenty twenty and that was against ivana hobbies in and she won a unanimous decision. Not twin make story the fastest fighter men or female to win titles in three divisions and choruses shields is plan was to fight for times last year.

City Attorney Dennis Herrera said he sued the San Francisco Unified School District and Board of Education as a last resort so more than 54,000 students can return to in person learning.

The Latest News On The War In Yemen
"War in yemen has been one of the grimmer stories unfolding anywhere on earth for roughly six years now for most of that time it has struggled fool widespread and much more so this year as the rest of the world was preoccupied with the obvious. One of the reasons that yemen has been under reported is that it has been difficult and dangerous to report from monocle. Twenty-fourth beirut correspondent. Leyla moulana alone has recently been to yemen and joins me now a layla. First of all the logistics at this point of getting in and out of yemen. How do you do it. The logistics arch freaky and there are multiple ways now. there awesome flights operating into yemen. And on the way in the way it was done. was through cairo's flying into cairo. And then going into an applet. Who'd you in the south now the flights of neuron a few times a week. They don't necessarily ron time. All hugely overbooked. Of course with people want to go on another extremely expensive as what happened with us. Was that when we lost one can can you then looking out as well because these flights are constantly moving. So it's very unsure when you go in how exactly oh gutting be able to get out and in all case We had to change into a land route option and dry options country which took days because the flights simply went operational on the way out so not necessarily the stable of travel. Itinerary will clearly once in yemen which parts of it. Were you actually able to see so. I was in shabwah. Governorate which is in the south is traditionally very Very tribal governor. At and at the moment it's now the only southern governor this fact compete under the control of the central government it was until the end of two thousand and nineteen ponti occupied by the some transitional council which is the nutritional southern separatists of southern yemen. But they were pushed out at the end of two thousand and nineteen alongside the shabani elite forces which were essentially local mercenaries hired and backed by the united arab emirates. Who of fighting that. They had been fighting against al qaeda terrorists forces that they will push out the two thousand eighteen so it is now backsitting under government control but of course at still a lot of controls over the different parties that some things. That isn't the right decision. So in that part of yemen is life relatively stable and peaceful on the one hand is driving around the capital city act. They're all going up. There are shop opening people walking around. That does seem to be a bishop. Prosperity come back and stuff. People was antony there were jobs hidden now. We can't find jobs in other areas with coming his to work so in on that side of things know that building tourist complex building hotels that very hopeful that the level of stability having now even things like went scoreless Address the that level of civility means that they will have increasing prosperity. The problem of course is firstly that the country as many said to me is still seen as water but also there are a lot of problems with stability they currently have posited is because there is oil. it's one of the three governorates that has a lot of oil in yemen and the governor has made a deal with the central government that they get a twenty percent cut. That goes straight to the governor at so they can invest in rebuilding infrastructure analytical houses in the governor at. That's a great deal. But a lot of people in southfield they should be getting even more not so much of it should be going to the central government that trying to encourage more western oil companies to come back in as also lots of liquid natural gas that the moment there is just one australian oil company functioning on The moment there is just one austrian oil company who is currently can shop. Hope that increase was fired. You enjoy -tunities Very unstable as i say with the political situation still going around. They're all active. Frontlines from the nearest one is in marriage to the north. That's fine with the season is also still frontlines. The southern traditional council as well given everything you've said about life in shaw born those soins reasonably encouraging signs of some sort of return to normality. Does it feel like the government is itself a self contained country at this point. Is there much talk about trying to put yemen back together. So this is the big question with some people are saying shove what is the example of how of federalist yemen could work. You know in which the different governorates level tournament. A certain amount of money to run that own concerns are loyal to a central government and of course contribute troops to a central government. Which is what's currently happening. Lots of shift one young men going and fighting own the nearest frontline that the government has up in a way in tons for its relationship that they have on say. The governor is a loyal to central. Government has a good working relationship barron which she has been given this level of autonomous theoretically that is hopeful future. The problem is that people are fighting for different reasons. This is something people kept saying to me that you know there are some people who had the interest of the money interest of the oil. The pool of calls many people saying that the uae and the arabia of that those reasons. But then you've got some transitional council bay come from a long line of people who believe that the south of the. Nfl is completely different from the nose. Should be united and shouldn't be wrong from the north which causes where at the central government is based although i should say that most of the people who make up the central government actually are outside the country right now because he ended so constantly moving on stable But seth me they're southerners new feel wouldn't at shouldn't be enrolled in the as the south bend. Of course you have. The who fees. Who are the shiite iran backed militia. Who are still fighting in. How occupied a lot of the north of the moment. They are running at sanaa city at the moment still and they of course flight final ideology and copy one of my money as many people said to me that it's not just about these business relationships on the national resources so while the idea the united yemen too. Many people is hugely appealing. And so many people that saying can you with retired war. We want peace. We want elections. We just want to get on with our lives and have yemen stop being associated with the idea of this ongoing horrific war which the united nations is called the greatest humanitarian crisis currently in the world but whether or not that's realistic the number of political issues currently butting up against each other both in tunnel and the proxy wars being fooled by international powers is is another question is obviously not short of problems but it was also burden this year as every country on earth walls by the covid nineteen pandemic. Were you able to get much sense of how that has affected life in yemen or how yemen with the resources it has has been able to handle it so the area i was in has extreme yellow covid figures at least in tons of what's being counted now going in i thought perhaps they simply aren't being counted all covered up in some way. One of the arguments is of course. It doesn't really make sense for the government to be covering up coach. Vic is because it's one way of them getting access to aid. Amy because so much aid money to other projects has been coastal this year because it will bring directed towards codex but in the area. I was in shock whistle. The numbers are extremely loads. They do have a new testing center in the capital of. Its just couple of months old. That's incompletely funded and built by the saudis very center. It isn't getting much use because they don't seem to be that many people coming in now elsewhere in yemen. The problem has been much worse. Part of the reason might be that there is not that much movement in the south. Where's the north in ogden. In saana a further away from that is a lot of moving there and we. Stephanie seen horrific numbers of people really struggling particularly ibp comps. Where who's it spreads wildfire. Now i did meet with several people who said that in the prisons. The situation is getting much worse as well. I spoke a couple of prisoners families who said that they the dominant co code in prison and the conditions were horrendous. They were not being freed Unlike many prisons seeing around the world who've been given a thorough from prison while the coronavirus has been spreading shouts great concern. The big problem really is as i say. That was not much of it to be seen at the moment. But the very worried about Of course we know that in the summer does seeing that the transmission. I'll in the winter. Once that construe immune systems are the health service simply The local hospital is absolutely overwhelmed. Ready mary i was having a den. Gay deng massive outbreak which is affecting a lot of young children in particular from the rural areas. You have to travel hundreds of kilometers to get to the hospital. So although right now where i was as i say not that big a problem if it does hit in the winter and docs saying they're concerned about that. It would be really really devastating.

There were women here in Jeopardy. You're feeling very sleepy. Oh, I'm sorry, Peter. We were looking for King Louis. The 11th. This automotive tool is used to tighten bolts.

Lebanon's entire government resigns amid anger over Beirut explosion
"A week after a massive explosion to. All parts of the Lebanese city of Beirut. Apart, the entire government has resigned the massive blast was caused whenever two thousand tons of ammonium nitrate which had been stored unsafely at the port for six years exploded killing over two hundred people injuring more than six thousand and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless over the weekend residents of Beirut demonstrated against the government calling for the removal of the entire political class due to their negligence and corruption. Joining us once again from Beirut is Layla Milana Allen Leyla when we spoke to you yesterday, five politicians had resigned so far. Tell us about the announcement made last night by the prime minister. So what we saw yesterday and the evening before session, all government ministers resigning. We also saw several NPR's goes well, Megyn went from protesters. Here we go one by one this many left to go. and. Then there was the resignation of the finance minister as he wasn't he just before that meeting that was supposed to in the afternoon that cabinet meeting in which prime minister the APP had said that he was going to a table a motion. To try and have the elections is at the State Petunia. So. How's it wasn't said that he would suspend his his resignation until off the meeting they went in and they spent two thousand not room. Getting. Rumors from quite early on in fact, the entire government was going to resign because there were two ways that this could happen. Either has MD could resign himself or if more than a third of his ministers resigned, that would make his cabinet untenable already looking at five. So essentially, just two more and they were already two minutes to said before they went through, they would resign if the government didn't as Walter a couple of hours they came out and those announcement saying that he would speak in the evening. And when he did speak, he came forward and he said. That they had tried their best to be transparent tried to Rama transparent government. She's January failed to impose some of the reforms that Lebanon. So desperately needed but endemic corruption in the government had made it impossible to do so had caused this tragedy. Now, of course, many people don't feel that's the case they feel that the government was not run transparently at all. Or none of the reforms that has promised January. Would be done in six months word done within six months, and of course we now know. That both the president and the prime. minister. WED Two thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of money not great was in the Port as worse excessive government none of them do anything about it. So the government's gone but is going to be a change in the system will the same sectarian politics driving the unrest still exist? Not at the moment now, sectarian politics is really driving some rest. There are a few elements here. Firstly, the the problem with the government system is not that it's impossible to run because the country says sectarian, it's the it's impossible to have a government which allows the country to not be sectarian young people on the streets is saying that's not what they want. They want to country that will come together and work together where people are elected based on their merit not based on what sector they come from but because the political system is original on these lines where each sect gets a certain number of seats innocent area firstly, it's impossible to have that kind of government that is responsible for the entire country doesn't have. Interest in certain places, and secondly, it means only a certain kind of person can be elected because there is such entrenched nepotism in politics and you need the money and connections to be able to run and succeed. So right now, what's going to happen is that as we saw late last year when Prime Minister I've had resigned, the current government will stay on in a Catholic capacity. There's not much they can do in that capacity they will meet rally and they will only be able to put in bills or emergency bills to keep the country going, of course, Lebanon ready needed proper legislation to come in and change things before this explosion now, really function of government. To get things moving the country who built and help people that's not going to happen under a caretaker government but the system is so complex in terms of trying to elect a new prime minister different block in Palm. As I say, these different sectarian blocks have to agree on the candidates and then he has to find a cabinet that pleases all of this -Tarian blocks each of whom will want their own cows come in that. Again, what we're going to see in the coming weeks is this political game. All aimed at making the right formation balance of people in power rob. Then a government trudy is just focused on what is best for the Lebanese people purchase street saying this is the same old system. Nothing's going to change a new election won't help us. Cabinet won't help us. We need a complete overhaul of its system which has dragging us down and letting the country move forward.

"Site but despite the happy mood in parliament square and despite three and a half years to general elections and three prime ministers the country remains deeply divided over brexit Layla Moran is a Liberal Democrats and P. whose party ran on a remain platform in December's election as remain as obviously very disappointed and sad today we've spent the last three and a half he is trying to stop bricks it from happening and actually the room today was of course he reconciled to the fact it's happening and that makes us very sad well joining me now is the B. B. C.'s political correspondent rob Watson robe to what extent is brexit now over it's only over in one sense and that is that Britain is formally left the European Union and that is a big deal I mean they're gonna be wrong it's a it's a developments Florek proportions a poll and and it means that sort of is Britain definitely going to leave will that be another second referendum old black stuff is now out the way but now the really the biggest challenge starts and that is Britain not just Johnson gets new relationship with the European Union but what its role is in the world what its economic model will be what its trade policy will be what its foreign policy will be because it's worth remembering the reason why this is such an historic moment is that for the last forty seven years membership of the European Union is that an absolute cornerstone of of foreign domestic and economic policy of British governments of of all colors the prime minister didn't seem to seize the moment by doing a grand speech outside Downing Street he released something that his staff and edited a few minutes long on Facebook that's right and I think that is the two reasons I think the first is any triumphalism would have seemed an appropriate given as he was saying this everyone acknowledges how divided the country is on the second reason why Mister Johnson wants to keep things locate is because they sort of want downing street the government they sold one politics to try to go back to playing politics as it used to be and not to have to use the P. word now that is a big off I mean the idea of the printer thanks it's politics I just going to go back to normal today and for the rest of this year the next four years I think it's pretty far fetched and the big task ahead in another box it's a very close deadline the end of the year for such big negotiations absolutely if if you if you look at the the European Union it's Rachael on trade deals it's taken an average of of six to eight years and people's reaction around the U. K. we'll heard mostly from a policy that in in parliament square that with the with vigils want that to the what the what people lighting candles to say goodbye look that's absolutely right Paul look this is an immensely divided country historians of said that nothing divided Britain like the division of a brexit since the seventeenth century what we were trying to decide whether king or parliament should be in charge and I think the really big question now is the camera's divisions be hailed as well as this business about Britain's role in the world that sort of international relations with a domestic issue and it's certainly true pull the motions of of of died down now now that we've left but those underlying divisions is still that I think we're gonna be hard to heal for this reason because it's sort of an expose the kind of a cultural divide in this country with broadly those room favor from main thing people are comfortable with globalization and comfortable with emigration comfortable with multi national organizations like the European Union and leave us the absolute office robots in many thanks that's the BBC's political correspondent US senators have voted against calling witnesses a Donald trump's impeachment trial a move which will bring the end of the process much closer the Democrats failed to persuade enough Republicans that witness testimony was necessary that leader in the Senate Chuck Schumer described the decision as a grand tragedy to not allow.

"It was end of Layla and his Pano melody. Gives you a better sense of who he was. Because that's Jim Gordon playing the piano. By the late seventies voices in his head became even louder. And is dark antics started causing many of his former best friends to refuse to be around him. He started showing up late to studio gigs and his mere presence once one of his best qualities. Returning sessions into corrosive events. Two marriages failed. Twelve trips to psychiatric hospitals improve nothing. On June third nineteen Eighty-three he picked up a hammer and an eight inch kitchen knife. Drove over his mother's apartment. And viciously killed her. Those voices had told them to do it. And if he did they'd go away. But they didn't. The next day. The police went over to his apartment not to arrest him, but simply to inform him of his mother's death. I found him curled up on the living room floor moaning in agony. He confessed on the spot. You see Jim Gordon was a highly functioning schizophrenic at least for close to thirty years. He's still got sixteen years lie for his mother's death. And today twenty nine years later, he still lives in a California prison, but many of the songs you remember most from the rock era. That's Jim Gordon. Playing the drums. And on Layla, the drums and the piano. Cory.
