"On 60 minutes. With close to a million species now threatened with extinction, it's not often you hear about a conservation success story. But as we first reported in November, the mountain gorillas of the East African nation of Rwanda are just that. When America naturalist dian fossey moved to Rwanda, half a century ago, to study mountain gorillas, their numbers were dwindling down to just 254 individuals. But today they're up to over 600 with another 400 in neighboring Uganda, the only great ape whose numbers are actually on the rise. How they've done it, a joint effort by scientists and government to save guerrillas and help the human communities around them with a key role played by tourists. These are the virunga volcanos, home to most of the world's mountain gorillas. Dian fossey aptly called them gorillas in the mist. But when the mist lifts, they are gorillas in the sun. Doing what mountain gorillas do. Eat, rest, eat some more. And snuggle. When you look in the eyes of a gorilla, you see a Kindred spirit looking back at you. They are so much like us. They have friends. They have enemies. They love to play. They love to eat. They love to nap. They are incredible moms and incredible dads. So we're gonna pull this one out. Primatologists, terrorists, stalinsky, heads the dian fossey gorilla fund, a nonprofit research and conservation organization that grew out of fossils work. How many years did she live up here alone? She was in the forest for 18 years. Fosse was sent to Rwanda in 1967 by famed anthropologist Louis Leakey, who had also sent Jane Goodall to Tanzania to study chimps. The people in the region they gave her a nickname near a mat chiburi, which meant a woman that lives alone in the forest. I'm sure they wondered, like, what was she doing up there? Strange woman. I'm very tall. She is 6 foot. This is actually from 1969. What she was doing as to winski showed us was observing guerrillas for hours a day. What she would do each night is come back and type up all of her notes. There is some soft pig grunting herd from the silverback and gases released. And this just goes on and on and on. Fosse's research and her appearances in National Geographic help change the perception of gorillas from aggressive King Kong brutes to the gentle vegetarian giants they actually are, but gorillas back then were under assault. Why were there poachers? Why were people interested? Well, at the time, people unfortunately wanted parts of gorillas as trophies. So they wanted a gorilla head for their mantelpiece or a gorilla hand. The gorillas habitat was also being eaten away as thousands of acres of forests were cut down, so farmers could plant cash crops up the mountainside. The demarcation line between farmland and forests stands out like a bad haircut, showing how little land gorillas have left. We cut down their homes. Yeah, I mean, unfortunately, that's the story for wildlife around the world. But here, that story is getting a rewrite, and the new version starts at volcanos national park headquarters every morning, where tourists gather to trek to see guerrillas, led by expert guides. They can live up to 45 years. The Rwandan government regulates the visits no more than 8 people per group for just one hour with the gorillas with precautions taken to protect them from human illness. The price tag is steep $1500 per person turning Rwanda, a country known for its horrific 1994 genocide, not so much for its beautiful scenery into a prime destination for the wealthy. Some of the most luxurious hotels in the world have opened here, generating tens of millions in tourism revenue. Other countries have diamonds, oil, would you say that gorillas are the most important natural resource of this whole country? Definitely, definitely. Definitely. Yeah, it's one of, if not the top source of foreign revenue, is tourism to see the gorillas. For the whole country, the whole country. The government gives 10% of the money from those guerrilla tracks to districts that border national parks in a program called tourism, revenue sharing. As you see, this is cool behind. That was before. Chief park warden prosper Owen gelli, met us at a local primary school behind him was the old school behind me. New classrooms paid for by tourism revenue sharing funds. It costs $1500 to go see the gorillas for one hour. Special experience. He admits it's a lot, but says it's made a tremendous difference in his meetings with local leaders. And we listen to what communities want the 12 energy adding to support. They decide. Yeah, they decide. This village built a health center. This one new housing with water tanks and electricity. Here a new marketplace. The 10% gives communities up to 650,000 U.S. dollars a year. Good morning. The one galley devised his time between greeting tourists, managing his rangers and traveling around these villages, talking, cajoling, and celebrating what tourism revenue has achieved. A few years back, this community chose to get milking cows, which have since had calves so the cows are now being given to new needy families. And those colorful striped sweaters, they're a product of tourism revenue sharing too. One year, this community used its funds to buy knitting machines. A lot of the guides, porters come from these communities. From these communities. And some of them are former poachers themselves. No. Some of the porters and guides were poachers that come from poacher families. So has all poaching of gorillas stopped? Yeah. In, yes, confidentially, yes. But gorillas can still get caught in snares set for smaller animals, like antelopes. So the Fosse fund dispatches a small army of trackers every morning, 365 days a year. When we go out into the forest, we know every gorilla in all of the families that we monitor. We check and make sure every one of them is okay. If one looks ill, we'll notify the veterinarians. And we call this extreme conservation. It could also be called an extreme workout. Oh boy. We sent off on a gorilla trek with sto winski, who in gelly and a team of porters. Visiting mountain gorillas is no walk in the park. It's an uphill hike from more than an hour. At an altitude of 8000 feet through that farmland that once belonged to the gorillas, can we stop here just to get to the park? Yes. Is it just me? Then just as we reach the park border. Oh my goodness. I can't believe it. A silverback used to seeing tourists sat calmly eating. He's right here. Yeah, come come. Unfazed by our gawking and pointing. Told us he's an adult male named Lee sanga. Fosse fund country director Felix and djimon taught us how to signal that we come in peace. That's very good. Inside

"Oh, that looks like it might be Chris there. Or at least we see his face. I recently met up with Anne and her daughter Mary, over Zoom from their home in Canada. They were patiently waiting for me to get on the call. We were looking at his website. We're like, okay, this guy loves bears. Once in a while, he would get into orangutans, but then he'd get back to bear stuff. I do love bears. You're right. With a little side foray into orangutans. Hi ladies. What's up with the orangutans? Mary is here to help with the conversation and her mom is 88 years old now and sometimes needs a little help with the details of her remarkable story. I dove right in with Anne to learn about the first time she got her spark for the giraffe. She remembers when she was four years old, going with her mom to the Chicago zoo. And the two of us looked at the draft and I knew I'd love it forever. Just a wonderful animal. I just couldn't get over it. Anne's curiosity was never satisfied when it came to the giraffe. She tried to look them up in her local library, but couldn't find any information. Well, my father said, there weren't any books about draft. And so that was when I thought, well, I'll make a book about a pen. But all through high school, all through the university, we never talked about draft. Ever. So then I realized when I graduated, I have to go myself and find out how they were. No books on giraffes? Fine. I'll go to Africa, learn about them and write one myself. And so is this what triggered you? What kind of gave you the idea? Okay, I'm going to go to Africa to learn about these creatures. Do you remember that moment? Oh yeah, I remember thinking and telling my parents I'd be going to and they looked doubtful, but I thought, you know, I know better than they do. And if I could just get the money together. And then I did get some money and my mother gave me some money. And then I could go. But going to Africa in the 50s as a woman was not just as simple as buying a plane ticket. This was something that just wasn't done back then. And sent out letters to universities, boarding schools, any place in South Africa she could think of, asking if she could stay there. But the reply was always the same. No women. So Anne tried a new tactic and then I started giving information with an a instead of Anne, and that worked a little bit. She would sign letters of introduction with just her initials to hide the fact that she was a woman. You weren't pretending to be a male, where you were pretending to be a man. But you weren't giving away that you were a woman at the time. No, if you can get away with that, but then they find out that it was a woman and a canceled again. So, yeah. I know you reached out to leaky as well. Doctor Louis Leakey was a Kenyan British paleoanthropologist, whose most famous for helping Jane Goodall get her start in Africa. Anne had reached out to him, but even he was a no. And he didn't seem well, he had Jane Goodall in his mind. Well, that was three years later. Mom was before, Jane. I would just like to make sure people know that. Mom was before Jade, yes, that's good. Let's remember who the trailblazer was here. The initial trick finally worked. A man named mister Matthews replied. He owned a citrus Orchard near Kruger National Park in South Africa and gave permission for Anne to come and stay with him. There were plenty of giraffes on or near the property. But mister Matthews said yes, thinking Anne was a man, so and then had to respond with a letter to clarify. And he wrote back and said, well, you can't because you're a woman. And then I had to start again and say, well, then please please sort of thing. And then he said, eventually, well, the problem was because his wife and three daughters were often California. So he was alone in a big house. And so he said, of course, you wouldn't want to be there. And I said, oh, no, no. I'd be fine. This was definitely an uncommon situation for that era. A single man and young woman staying together, but Anne had no problem with it. She had to find a way to spend time among the giraffes. Mister Matthews finally agreed. Zoan packed her bags and she was off. Africa bound..

said back in April of last year 2020 so no two years ago 2020 that any V subsidies would be cut from 2020 to 2022 by 10% 20% and 30% of the seems to be the first indication that they'll be cut

that it will cease to qualify for government subsidies for new energy vehicles because those only exist for vehicles below ¥300,000 And that is check of the media was shot All right well let's get over to our regular guest in the first time he's on this show on 2022 Eric Belgium has seen an ETF amateur blooming intelligence talking about those exchange traded funds Eric welcome as ever tell us about the end of the year that was and tell us how perhaps things were positioning how the market was positioning itself for the new year Yeah Happy new year guys And yeah this is a monster year for ETS We talked about it all year The end of the year at about $908 billion the annual record was 500 billion So almost doubled it and most of the flows came really throughout the whole year There really wasn't much of a break perhaps value ETF had a good Q one and then leveled off a little bit perhaps emerging markets had a good beginning of the year and then leveled off But largely U.S. equities in particular really saw flows the whole time And what's interesting is U.S. fixed income ETFs which were suffering the fed front running outflows that people bought L two D and HIG were cashing out So they were had a drain on them They still had a record year And I think some of that is that people are continuing to use these structure ETFs and they're allocating but also when the market is up that much 26% was the S&P people are going to rebalance they have to keep their portfolio allocations somewhat in the right percentage So they're going to move over to Bond So bonding TS actually had a pretty good year despite the ag being down on the year but they took in $210 billion because a lot of rebalancing happened So that's sort of where we're at I mean everything just seems pretty fine Everybody's upbeat I think they trust the fed has their back I think they think the economic data is pretty good So I think we're going in pretty optimistic The only thing going against it is can the market really return this much every year I doubt it Yeah When will we know if well I guess I've got a few weeks in the better part of the month to see whether or not funds flow out of U.S. centric companies and into either emerging markets or other developed market stocks because the U.S. is outperformed for like three years in a row Well that's interesting So this is what makes interesting flows aren't all performance chasing It's a lot of rebalancing And IMG which is the I shares emerging markets ETF Listen the top 15 for flows even though it was down on the year K web which you guys know China Internet stocks took a beating It was down 48% yet it took in $8 billion That I think is by the dip thing going on there So just because you're down doesn't necessarily mean you're going to see flows And I think this speaks to why you're seeing so many asset managers move over to ETFs The fish are biting everywhere And so even when something down it usually flows whether it's by the dead people or people rebalancing For example the Vanguard international ETF VX U.S. has seen flows every week this year even though it had a rough year And again a lot of that is people rotating out of U.S. equities into international in order to keep their portfolio allocation percentages somewhat where they want it And so you're going to see more flows into beaten up areas I guess also here we're going to see Eric a lot of focus on Kathy wood given that she probably like to forget 2021 and give us a sense of how bad the shines come off her to put it diplomatically Yeah she really took quite a beating both performance I think the fund was down 40% in February high That's a lot She took a beating on me in public domain and Twitter and it's been tough here That said I mean the lack of outflows is compelling although we called it I got to say I think a lot of people really have bought into her trust me for the 5 year outlook premise And I also think she holds her portfolio only has 2% overlap with the S&P and so they think okay they got the S&P covered with Vanguard And.

"No one would blame you. If you weren't hopeful at all, and yet you are, where does that come from? Well, let me back off a bit by saying that if we all lose hope we're doomed. So I've found I've met so many people who don't have hope who say they feel helpless and hopeless. And I say to them, well, that's because we're always being told, think globally at locally. But quite honestly, if you think globally, you just so depressed. I mean, every day where bombarded with bad news socially politically environmentally. But turn it the other way around something that you feel I'd like to do something about this. And either you're hopefully you and some friends get together and start doing something. And you find you make a difference. And then you realize that in other parts of the world, people are feeling like you are doing like you because they're being advised to take local action. And you've made a difference. So you want to do more. And that's inspiring other people. So it's an upward spiral like this, of growing hope with action. So for me, hope isn't just something where you sit back and say, oh, I hope everything will be okay. No, I don't look at the world through rose colored spectacles. We've got to work to make what we hope for happen. The book divides your reflections on hope into four different categories and human intellect is one. You say that our own human capacity to intellectualize through problems is a place where you find hope can you explain that? Well, we differ mainly from other animals by this explosive development of the intellect, chimpanzees, and other animals away, way, way more intelligent than we used to think. So how bizarre that the most intellectual creatures ever lived is destroying its only home, our planet. That is crazy. So now, scientists beginning to come up with all kinds of innovative ways of coping with some of the at least environmental problems, like clean green, renewable energy, for example. So that's why the human intellect is one of my reasons for hope. You were not classically trained scientist, luckily. Why do you say that? Do you think it gave you different eyes to look at the world? Well, that's one of the reasons leaky was so keen that Louis Leakey paleontologist anthropologist was so keen study tombs. He wanted, because at that time, the scientific attitude towards animals was so reductionist, you know, only humans had personalities, minds and emotions, and animals were not sentient beings at all. You shouldn't have empathy with them. Well, I didn't know any of that. I hadn't been told it. So, you know, because the chimps are genetically we share 98.6% of our DNA with them. Scientists began to have to change that to. During an event, a couple of years ago, and this is laid out in the book. You were asked what your next great adventure would be. And you said death. Which I have to assume probably caught some people off guard in the audience. Oh, we did that. There was a gasp, then some nervous Tito's right. There were about 5 to 10,000 people. And a huge auditorium. And explain that answer. How you have come to that perspective? Well, when you die, this either nothing, in which case, fine, you're gone, right? Nothing, your mind, your consciousness, everything gone. Or, as I have come to believe through various experiences that I've had in my life, there's something. Don't know what it is quite. But if that's true, can you think of a greater adventure than finding out what is beyond death? So as you think about where you have come and the next great adventure ahead, they are just generations of people whom you have inspired over your life. And young people, in particular, you evoke something very special in them. And they really look to you as a guide in their work and advocacy on climate change and how to protect the planet. How do you talk to them about that? It was because of that feeling that I met in so many young people, hopelessness, helplessness. That's why I started the roots and shoots program for youth, that's now in over 60 countries. And when they came up to me, they all said more or less the same. This is in four continents that we feel this way because you've compromised our future older generations. And there's nothing we can do about it. Well, we have not just compromised the future of young people. We've been stealing it. We've been stealing it, stealing the natural resources that they will be relying on. Many of which will now not be there. But it's nothing they can do, was that true? No, there's always something to do. So roots and shoots is based on the premise that a group will get together and they'll be interested.

"Krista tippett and this is on being. Today I'm with the primatologist Jane Goodall. Over 60 years ago, she first went to the Gombe forest in what is now Tanzania and transformed the understanding of western science and culture about the closest kin to humanity. We're exploring what she's learned and is still teaching about our species. She's been talking about her more recent adventures, which took her out of the forest. First, advocating in the human habitat of research laboratories towards ending experimentation on great apes. And then into a unique method of holistic community based conservation around Gombe called takari. Three decades ago, she also founded the roots and shoots movement with the inspiration of 12 teenagers on her porch in Tanzania. It's now in more than 60 countries. Did roots and shoots emerge out of takari? No. To marriage because takari was expensive to operate. We were already starting in some other African countries. So I was going around the world gradually further and further around the world, talking to people about the problems in Africa and the reason for them. And hoping to raise certain awareness, maybe some money. And I kept reading the young people in 1990. Young people who seem to have lost hope and talking mostly about universities students, some high school. And they were mostly just apathetic, but some were depressed, really depressed, and somewhat angry. And when I asked them why they felt that way, they also more or less the same, and that's in Asia in North and South America in Europe by then I hadn't gone to the Middle East, but I know they say the same man now. Because they said you've compromised our future and there's nothing we can do about it. So you've heard that saying we haven't inherited this planet from our ancestors. We borrowed it from our children. But we have been borrowed. We've stolen. And we're still seeing today. Yes, these themes are as alive now. Would you all of the nuance of the title of the name roots and shoots? I think also really speaks to the philosophy of this. Would you just describe that? I'd love to. Yes. I've already said how I love trees. Yes. I think my property my very favorite individual tree has to be beach and my garden. And when beach began to grow over a hundred years ago, actually, the pretty tiny seed, and if I had picked it up at that time, it would have seemed so small and weak little growing shoot and a few little roots. And yet there is what I call magic. It's a live force in that little seed so powerful that to reach the water that the tree will need. Those little roots can work through rocks and eventually push them aside. And that little shoot to reach the sunlight, which the tree will need for photosynthesis can work its way through cracks in a brick wall and eventually knock it down. And so we see the Greeks and the walls as all the problems social and environmental that we have inflicted on the planet. So it's a message of hope, hundreds and thousands of young people around the world can break through and can make this a better world. And we've got members in kindergarten, university and everything in between. And it's my greatest recent pose. Everywhere I go, these young people are telling me showing me shining eyes, what they're doing, what they're being doing what they plan to do to make the world better. In your book, reason for hope. You use the language of moral evolution and even spiritual evolution as your hope for our species. And I wonder what that means for you and how do you think about the contours of that challenge? You know, that was in 1999 that you're at that book. Yeah. 20 years on. In a changed place in an estranged, strange time. Yes. Well, I think that during this time, we've seen a very big move towards more moral behavior. Greater understanding. And you can just trace it very clearly and as it was to animals around the world, the growth of these organizations that are protecting animals, the cruelty. And then, on the other hand, you've got proliferation, organizations trying to help victims, human victims of domestic violence and orphans and refugees and migrants. So we're getting there, but some people are much more like much further advanced than others. Well, I think that something that you became aware of in your study of chimpanzees over time and that you've always been aware of in the human condition is our capacity for great empathy and play and creativity and intelligence and also cruelty and atrocity. Okay, I was shocked to find chimpanzees have this dark aggressive side like us. Make them more like us, but I thought they were, which is a pretty sad statement to have to make. But I think only humans are capable of true evil because a chimpanzee will kill, but it's a spur of the moment. It's an emotion. It's an emotional response to a situation. Whereas we can sit down far away from an intended victim. And in cold blood, plan out the most brutal forms of torture. That's the difference. And that's our intellect that has enabled us to think in those terms. There's irony that you have spent these years, these decades now. Since that Damascus experience of, as you say when you realize you had to be that you became not just a scientist but an activist. And you needed to be working with human beings in changing our relationship to the natural world. There's just kind of this inverse, you know, the stories, the early stories in your early writing and the films. There's almost this dream like quality to the fact that you, this young English woman without a college degree, who had always wanted to go to Africa and always loved animals that you were able to go work with Louis Leakey and become a scientist and be in this extraordinary place where you're so at home and then you have ended up as part of the calling to that same purpose spending most of your time outside that forest..
On Being with Krista Tippett

"Well, when I first went to Gombe, nobody else had studied chimpanzees in the wild. Right. Uncharted territory. And of course, the first problem was that the chimps ran away as soon as they saw me. They had never seen anything like this white ape before. And it was very wonderful at that time that my mother was there. The reason she was there is because the British authorities take any covers and last outpost the crumbling British Empire back then. And they wouldn't take responsibility for me coming on my own they said, I have to bring someone with me. So she volunteered. And so she was there to boost my morale and those early days because I get back dejected, the chimps had run away again and she was pointing out that on this peak that I discovered. I used my binoculars and she said, you know, you're learning how the chimpanzees make beds at night bending the branches over. You're learning how they sometimes travel alone and sometimes in small groups and sometimes in big excited gatherings. You're learning the foods that they eat and the calls that they make. So you're learning more than you think. And really sad that she left just two weeks before that breakthrough observation when the one chimbo had just begun to lose his fear, darling David Arabia. I saw him using and making tools to fish for termites. And you know, that was the turning point. That was what enabled my mentor, Louis Leakey to go to the National Geographic society. And they agreed to fund the research when the 6 months money ran out. 6 months, money came from a American philanthropist, and grateful to him still. And they sent Hugo van now to take photographs to make film. He became my first husband and it was his photographs and film in the geographic magazines and documentaries. But forced science to believe what I was saying because before that, many of them had said, well, why should we believe what she says? She hasn't read the college. She's just a girl. But when they saw Hugo's film, then they had to believe. When they saw what you saw, but I do think it's worth underlining because it's so hard for people now to imagine that as late as the latter half of the 20th century. Human beings thought that we were the only creatures who made tools. That's what some science believed. If somebody at that time had gone to the pygmies in the rainforest in Congo, they could have told you, I've sat and talked to them. They've watched it. Right. It was, you know, man, the toolmaker. It was Osman hill, who defined us thus. And so it was a shock, I think, to the scientific world. And when I finally was made to go to Cambridge, university by Louis Leakey said, I needed a degree. He wouldn't always be around to get money. And then also you were the 8th person in the history of Cambridge to come and you came in to do graduate work without an undergraduate degree, which was almost unheard of. Yes. Yes, I did. He said it was the time for that. Yeah. I was waiting with signed to said, well, you've done your study wrong. You shouldn't have named the chimpanzees. They should have had numbers that science. And you can't talk about personality, mind capable and problem solving or emotions. Because the unique to us, but the dog you mentioned, rusty, he taught me when I was a child that that certainly wasn't true, and not the only beings on the planet with personalities, minds and emotions. And we are part of a not separate from the rest of the animal kingdom. I was actually taught in it in the textbooks that the difference between us and all other animals is one of kind. Right. That's such an important distinction for you. And would you elaborate on what you mean? You write so important that there isn't a difference in kind and kind. What that word hold. The opposite of it is degree the difference is degree. In other words following Darwin's theory of evolution, you know, the species gradually evolve. And we just one of the species. And so, you know, I just could not believe that the scientists were saying that and talk to many of the religions talk to the Buddhists and talk to the indigenous people. They believe that we're part of the animal kingdom. They believe animals are our brothers and sisters. Right. And western science. And I think it probably stems from religion. God made man God made man different and God made man to have dominion over the birds and the animals and the patients. So on. But that is a wrong translation. I put Hebrew Friends law he grew word, which I do not remember. But I've written it down. One of my books meant something more like steward, not dominion. Right. The dominion. But that point of view that way of thinking and seeing also penetrated western science. It seems to me that the significance of your work in the self understanding of our species there are so many ways to talk about it, but it also these observations reconnected us. As you said, that we are part of the animal kingdom that we are part of nature, not just in our bodies, has in other ways, say that there's social and emotional continuity with the natural world that we're creatures rather than all the other creatures being creatures as another way people talk about, I think those genesis stories. Yeah, well, just very arrogant to think that way. And, you know, some people still do. The other thing which very dangerous about science, I was told at Cambridge that you have to be absolutely objective and you must not have empathy with your subject and to me that right from the beginning was so wrong because when I was watching a chimpanzee family, for example and one of the young ones did something a little strange. And so because I was empathetic towards them, I thought, well, if, you know, if they were human, they do it because of whatever. And that gives you a platform and you can stand on that platform. And then try to analyze what you've seen in a scientific way. But it's the empathy that it gives you notes that intuition that aha moment, which you wouldn't get if you didn't have empathy. I don't think and also the cold scientific approach, I believe has led to a lot of suffering on this planet..

And i say that tongue in cheek but certainly enough influence and enough presence in the community and in the state that that's a big deal to arrest somebody like that especially for the type of charges that we were arrested him for and i don't recall what all judge james may have said that any bond hearing we had and i don't recall exactly how the megan dollar amount came about but it sort of was a compromise between the idea that we that somebody's been arrested. That is well known and possibly well respected and at the same time.

"Okay louis and mary leakey also found in bed. One of olduvai gorge bola stones and an apparent leather working tool that might have been used a fashion leather cords for the bolas using bola stones to capture game would seem to require a degree of intelligence and dexterity beyond that possessed by homo habilis. This concern is heightened by the recent discovery of a relatively complete skeleton of homo habilis. Which shows this hamad to have been far more apelike than scientists previously imagined and. That's the other thing i noticed. They'll find a couple of bones of something and then they build skeleton out of it and then eventually some and you see it it's supposed to be human ancestor and it's some blend of ape human but then when they finally find a complete skeleton of that thing with those same bones you find out that it's actually pretty much an ape way more than they were building out of their model based on the couple of bones that they found far more than what they built. It doesn't it doesn't look nearly as much as as a missing link is what they made up before they had the complete skeleton. And that's what they're saying here like the discovery of a complete skeleton of homo habilis. It shows that it's far more apelike than they had previously imagined. And so was it makes. That doesn't mean it couldn't make tools. Yeah that's what i was about to say. Is it like you know the morphology of it doesn't really i mean.

Taking a long break from streaming and content creation in general, and then recently pokey released an apology video discussing topics that range all the way back to twenty eight eighteen. But she did talk about some of Leakey's criticisms directly. Specifically, her relationship status and comments about her appearance if video is to address freezing comments, criticisms that I perceived I know this video is long overdue. I've seen a lot of people talk about the way that I look recently. There's WanNa. PUT It out there. I don't think I'm the prettiest person in the world. But I think that's okay everyone's entitled to an opinion I personally made the decision seven years ago whenever I got into streaming that I don't want my personal life to the part of my content and that's just what I'm GonNa stick by until I and whoever I'm dating whatever time decide otherwise that video was released on August eighteenth and then three days later on August twenty first Levi's entire youtube channel was gone. Now you choose policy when it comes to violating the rules Is very similar to twitches that we talk about all the time on this show it's three strikes, and then you're at each of the first times violated a policy you get one, and then the third time the channel is just deleted. Youtube cited quote multiple severe violations of Youtube policy prohibiting content designed to harass bully or threatened end quote as the reason for Levi's ban according to tweet from slasher. Now, when the story about lease Van I broke, there was some speculation about. Whether or not he was notified. But as I two strikes at all a representative from Youtube told Julia Alexander a report from the verge debt quote, his channel was terminated because it violated the company's harassment policy three times over a period of ninety days. No specific videos were identified, but they did confirm its permanent when I asked specifically about length of Ban and quote on August twenty first after he was banned leafy tweeted a youtube asking how he could get his account reinstated. In response to the news another Youtuber Cabos tweeted that leafy had never been notified about his first two strikes at all and that his account had just been banned out of knowing leafy himself also claimed keep never been given any strikes in a later comment that said back on June fourth leafy actually tweeted that he'd received two strikes on his account for harassment. There have been some people commenting that those strikes were reverted but that hasn't been confirmed by leafy himself or Youtube. On August twenty fourth leafy tweeted this still looking for his account to be reinstated. And when team Youtube responded, he had some choice words as recording this video leafy channel still nowhere to be found on Youtube and he's actually started to stream on twitch. So I, guess he's trading places but dr disrespect. Now with this whole story mind it's worth noting that Youtube has recently made massive changes to its policy requirements for users. Specifically, the way that content creators are supposed to treat other content creators. issue. In, many different ways and I think we have seen many we've seen some high-profile examples that we know have been Alec and that has caused us to take really hurt look at our harassment Halsey as I'm sure many of you know since like the beginning of time, one of the easiest ways to become popular on youtube is to make you videos about other youtubers. This is specifically true about what we would call drama content where creators be for call each other out. An extremely cringe boxing matches. With. That said, this latest situation involving leafy really seems to show that Youtube is taking stuff seriously and trying to figure out what's fair game the what constitutes harassment at this point with this story I? Think we're just GONNA have to wait and see if Lee will ever get back on Youtube if he'll be able to stay on twitch and if this new stricter policy is going to have long term implications for other creators as well.
Japan postpones 2020 Summer Olympics to 2021
"But with the children thanks the games I have to be rescheduled based on everything that's going on because if nobody wants to go and compete in and nobody wants a gold watch then Tokyo is going to really you know be tanked financially from this so prime minister Shinzo Ave spoke to the head of the IOC and proposed the delay it's going to be rescheduled beyond twenty twenty but not later than summer twenty twenty one now the Olympics have never been to lead up before I thought there was a delay one of the Olympics and forget I thought it was it had to be delayed into October of one year the summer Olympics once I think was in the sixties had to be delayed to October forget why but they were canceled back in nineteen sixteen nineteen forty and nineteen forty four I'm C. nineteen forty nineteen forty four was during divorce will work till so the gains have to be rescheduled to a day beyond twenty twenty but not later than summer twenty twenty one accord the international Olympic committee I guess that we they write the rules as they go originally the rules work you will have to deal with in twenty twenty and they realize well then it one of the summer Olympics if we have to wait till after the summers of the cold so Tokyo governor Yuriko Cole Leakey said vads the name of the delayed Olympics will still be Tokyo twenty twenty well because that's what all the gear and all the you know swag and everything says so it's not going to be called the twenty twenty one I think it's really really important for Olympic staff even number years even numbers on there so he made a comment to reporters or she'd made the comments are part of the vision part minister Shinzo abi spoke to the head of the national of the committee let me see here IOC president Thomas Bach has agreed one hundred percent of the falls from a proposal and then said the decision was about protecting human life fox said the new dates for the new games to be postponed during peace time would be decided by an IOC panel overseeing the gains in Tokyo organizers yeah it's very expensive we've talked about how cities take a big hit whenever they do Olympics because Olympics village the stadiums it's really hard to get your money back Atlanta has a really nice Olympic area it it it has like you know Olympic village and you know you get to see it except I just don't know how much money they make off of that but the average you know state country city whatever it doesn't seem to do well post Olympics from what we understand it's an absolute mess when you have all these consumers come and spend money and then you know they leave so what do not have an Olympics after spending all that money to prepare and it takes years to prepare that alone can just crash Japan's economy without even talking about you know the Olympics or the court of ours so when they see the current pandemic has already helped push Japan towards recession the GDP contracted one point eight percent in the October December quarter an economist at research firm Fitch on Monday revises twenty twenty growth forecast for Japan to negative one point one percent from negative point to and he said the postponement will worsen it significantly and impact their GDP the three point five point eight percentage points hence the postponement would badly affect Japanese consumer confidence they do not know what it would do to the two hundred forty billion yen if Japan has issues then we have issues obviously because we're all you know in an economy together Tokyo twenty twenty organizers declined to say how many foreign visitors expect to visit Japan specifically to watch this one action I remember they still have aftermath of Fukushima not so much a literal radiation aftermath but you don't have a lot of people very excited to you know also go to an area that had you know the tsunami and then you know the nuclear fallout from that so my guess is even if the Tokyo Olympics are postponed I don't believe that it's going to still be as much of a economic you know windfall as people
Jane Goodall: The Woman Who Never Gave Up
"Some people just don't quit. It's okay to quit occasionally, it's best to, but let Dr Jane Goodall be an example, to us, all sometimes you have a far fetched dream and instead of dismissing it, you do it anyway. And when you've cheered what you set up to do, just when you're at the top of your game, your dream might change based on what you've learned along the way your knee dream is bigger and more difficult to realize, but you do it anyway. Repeat into old age never slowing down. And you might even get nominated for a Nobel peace prize. The key to Dr Goodell's persistence, seems to have a lot to do with knowing what she liked from a very young age. And then just insisting on doing it. Her father gave her a stuffed chimpanzee when she was a baby. And she took it with her everywhere, even though it was by all accounts terrifying. She grew up loving to observe and catalog animals, and dreamed of one day living with African, animals and writing books about them for a living. Her mother, who was a novelist herself told. All that, that seemed like a perfectly reasonable idea, even though it was the nineteen forties and not at all. But middle class English girls were expected to do after she finished school. Goodall couldn't afford to go to college. So she worked odd jobs in London for a few years until a friend, invited her to visit her family's farm in Kenya at which point Goodall, immediately quit her job, and waited tables, until she made enough money to pay for the price of boat fair to Africa. While in Kenya. Her friends, justed, she contact the paleontologist, Louis Leakey curator of the corn did museum in Nairobi to discuss. Primates Aliki was interested in studying primate behavior in order to better understand early human species leaky hired Goodall as his field assistant on a paleontological dig and later asked her to return to England to research primates and raise money for a long-term observational study on wild chimpanzees, the gun base stream, national park in Tanzania into live nineteen sixty twenty six year old Jane Goodall began setting up her field station at Gumby, which would become the site of the longest running. Wildlife research project in history. British authorities initially balked at the idea of a young woman doing this kind of work on chaperoned. So Goodell's mother van accompanied her for the first few months Goodall observed, the chip head See's daily for two years before she earned their trust. Her method was just to watch the animals, and imitate their actions, recording everything that happened in a field journal. Two of Goodell's most important discoveries during this period, had to do with what chimps eight and how they went about getting food Goodall was the first to observe chimpanzees killing and eating the meat of small mammals prior to this. They were thought to be vegetarian and perhaps her biggest contribution to our understanding of primates was the revelation that chimps used collected and modified grass stems and sticks as tools to fish, termites out of their nests Goodell's discoveries were so significant Leakey said, now, we must redefine tool redefine, man, and he arranged for her to write a dissertation at Cambridge University on the behaviors of wild chimpanzees. It was accepted and she became one of only eight people ever to graduate from Cambridge with her PHD without first earning her undergraduate degree in nineteen sixty four Goodall married. Hugh on, Loic a Dutch wildlife photographer who leaky sent to record her activity in the field. They had a son in nineteen sixty seven who spent his early life with his parents at Gumby after Goodell in Loic divorced in nineteen seventy four. Good. All Mary, Derrick Bryson in nineteen seventy five who was the director of Tanzania's national parks during this time Goodell published books about her experiences in research at gone BEI, including in the shadow of man, which was criticized by scientists because of good old habit of naming subjects of her research. She called her most famous study subject, David greybeard, but the book was Beilby popular and has since been translated into forty eight languages as she lived and worked in Gumby. She began to notice changes to the chimpanzees habitat deforestation and mining practices forced the animals out of their homes and into spoiler in smaller areas. More than one million wild chimpanzees lift in Africa hundred years ago. But today, only a fifth of that population exists Goodall saw the writing on the wall. Which is why in the nineteen eighties Goodall changed her focus from observing chimps to working to protect their habitat.
