The turkish lira fell as much as seventeen percent against the dollar ultimately landing around ten percent down. Turkish stocks also crashed the benchmark borsa.

"What's going on guys. It is monday march twenty second and today we're discussing when currencies fail bitcoin. Google searches in turkey. Quadruple as the lira. Crashes i up however let's do. The brief is backing. Down from their crypto ben. The central bank of nigeria has issued a clarifying statement. A couple of weeks ago. They came out with a statement. Basically saying hey. Guys look crypto currencies have been banned for the last three years banks. You have to stop servicing. The people with crypto accounts this clarifying statement however said that they had never in fact ban cryptos and indeed had never even discouraged people from trading them instead quote what we have just done was to prohibit transactions on crypto currencies in the banking sector. So they're trying to say that this was specifically about a replacement i think for the naira in financial transactions. That's what they had prohibited this. Nigeria situation has been really interesting to watch as many in parliament reacted. Not positively to the cbsn's new ban or new band talk but instead called for them to come and testify before parliament at issue. Was the number of nigerian youth. Who seek crypto as a means to economic opportunity and this could be an example of the force of youth in particular for driving policy shifts or at least as it seems reinterpretations. Speaking of policy. Are we in the least responsible fiscal policy in forty years. That's what larry summers had to say about. The biden administration stimulus and really everything else going on economically right. Now larry summers is a former treasury secretary. Former dean of harvard and he pointed at both dem's and republicans as at fault quote it's fundamentally driven by intransigence on the democratic left and intransigence in the completely irresponsible behavior in the whole of the republican party. He said there is a one in three chance that inflation will accelerate. He also said that. There's a one in three chance that the fed would hit the brakes. push the economy to a recession. His final one in three possibility. Is that the fed and treasury will get the rapid growth. They're looking for without inflation. Now even if you agree with him summers is a in the words of one former professor of mine. One of the world's galactic douches and be super salty that he was looked over for any administration role however he has the relationships and reputation to get on tv whenever he wants to because mainstream financial media so there is a big grain of salt here third scaramucci and the fifth live bitcoin etf application. I trust advisors and skybridge capital which is the hedge fund run by former white house calms director and recent bitcoin booster. Anthony scaramucci aka. The mooch has filed a bitcoin. Etf proposal this follows wisdom tree. Neither vow korean van and van is currently in. Its forty five day open review period in an interview last week. Scaramucci said the increase in the money supply was a quote silent tax on savers. He also said that companies are going to have to look at assets like bitcoin for their treasury. Quote a responsible. Cfo or responsible treasurer will have to think about other assets to hold as a potential store value for their companies. He also said that. Bitcoin has the potential to quote. Start to standardize money again and that will be better for the working.

Turkey’s Lira Plunges After Third Central Bank Chief Sacked

"Now to what's going on in Turkey. The lira absolutely tumbling after what the eighth 10th 45th central banker dismissed by Erdogan. I believe he was the third in the past two years to be kicked out after having tightening policies to try to shore up credibility. In the Turkish currency. Evidently, it was not what Erdogan wanted and he was ousted. Damian SAS are joining us now, Damien. What's your sense of whether this will get remedied in some way from the political operatives around President Erdogan? Because right now? You got a currency problem? Yeah, well, I'm not in the wheelhouse of President Erdogan and new Central Bank cover Cappuccio Glue seems to be a critic of the rate hikes. I mean, he came from the crew of government newspaper Yeni Safak. So you know, he seems to be just another pawn. He seems to be cut of the same cloth as Morocco Whistle who was the central bank governor before? Most recent sacking of Nazi oddball somebody who basically thought that cutting rates was a good thing to do in the face of rising inflation. And this is really what we're talking about here, ELISA. The inflation impulse in emerging markets is far stronger than anyone's even realizing certainly more than we're seeing here in developed markets. And so look. I mean, you've got Turkish locals who have moved their money off short into dollars into gold. And then I'll bring you back on shore anytime soon. And that's a real risk. Alright, Gaming. So for the smart Institution. Investors that you speak with Damian is Turkey. To what extent is that even investable? That's a great point. It's not. It's not as investable is that once was certainly and you know, it's probably only 1% of Ah e m local currency debt allocation. If that, certainly on the equity side, I think there's a little bit more there. But you know, you see the horses stumbled down 10% today. I think the currencies off now about 8 8.5%. It was down. You know as much as 10% earlier on, so it seems to be snapping back. I think the real risk in the real question is What does this mean for the broader, um, complex or we're going to see contagion into places like Egypt, the Nigerian South African Right now, we're really not seeing that Paul. I mean, CBS five years spreads are double that of South Africa. South Africa's Haven't really moved in lockstep with the same goes for Nigerian Egypt in some of the other high flyers, So you know, right now things seem to be relatively well contains, but the verdict is still out for sure.

Talking about my girl taylor. Swift sold her music catalog to what's his name scooter braun. Oh yeah and then complains. After bob dylan sold his music library for three hundred million dollars. That's right And by the way He sold is popularly. Seventy eight which is another one of those amazing miracles. The bob dylan still around still kicking. Well did you hear what he said about this jerry region. But here's what's going to happen you me. We'll be watching You know football game. We're watching wednesday night football thursday night football tuesday night.

That's a good one apple amazon target. And it'll be Some of my friend is blowing in the wind blowing in the wind or something blue. What's blue some blue jet blue. And they'll be tangled up in blue. You'll go what bob dylan. His stuff is going to be of vera readily available companies to put in tv commercials. Because bob dylan sold out. It's bob dylan's if you don't like it if you think you know that he's Not that kind of guy that he wouldn't ever seventy-nine by the way he sold out. He took the money. God bless him his family's gonna why he needs the money but his family is going to be fabulously wealthy for generations but companies like target nap bullen and whatever flow what is flow sell insurance. Press gress yes i defense. They're going to be able to play. Dylan's pay whatever the going rate is and they could play it and you'll hear it all over the place just like you here. You know the rolling stones in some cases or taylor swift and other artists who was amazing. When i read the story it was about some of the other artists of fleetwood. Mac sold theirs for like. I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time.

My wife was pretty much on the other side of it where traditional ways. Yes. But the same way to that was raised by her immediate family in the sense in our sisters was mom and dad was pretty much using a lot of substance abuse. So she kind of was raised in a very independent. She didn't. She doesn't really know about the traditional ways of teaching, but I was groomed pretty much into that. So when he came together. Through a dangerous Rodeo this how That we came together. But we got to know each other and she stuck around. I. Soda Job Medifast I would say that was given the job. A job that with a big corporation IBM. Then spent twenty years with the company. But one thing that I want to stress his about my mom, my relationship with my father. When I was a kid that you know, Lilla one that Probably about four five years old. Every time when he comes home, he always comes home drunk. He always said my number one son. He would play with me. Always being rough with me to be a man. And always makes me cry. A remember that. Whenever he comes home and on close to home it. Oh, my aunties Manco used to hide me different hiding places. And by the time when I was about probably about four or five years old. My Dad chose alcohol over. Over my brother. Ni- he left us a never came back. All, these years growing up. Just kinda strange. As. I said, know went to a new family GRANDPA family and what to boarding school. And that the. Holidays. Kiss been picked fathers or their. Grandmother grandparents. And there was nobody. A see that water school for about nine months. Nobody will come pick me up. And that the grandparents raised me The very, very, very strict. There was hardly any love was mention. Saw Yearn for that. For that word that relationship never had that. And finally that I want to run away. With treated very harsh. When a runaway but to. I known anybody besides my mother there and that the this new family. So I was lucky prisoner, you might say this family here. For Years Pass. I find. Realize that you know they really know how to express. Love. Verbally in their actions. What of my life of unrealized. Love Me. BELIEVE THAT'S A. Beginnings since I was a kid that. Never.

A Mother & Her Newborn Separated by COVID-19

"I scare. It's so great to talk to you after all this hard work on your film. It's it's it's really good to be here. So thank you so much for having me. Yeah, I. Mean, we're so we're so excited. I know this is your first frontline. So congratulations on making over the finish line with us together. It feels really good I to be honest I'm also a view or an an a big fan. So it's It's a real pleasure to be working with. Such a talented group of people. Thank you. So I I was hoping you could set the scene a little bit for us. This is an immigrant family from Guatemala and the Mother Zoo League. Is close to giving birth to her second child when she's hospitalized with the virus. So what happens next? So it's it's April first and was eight months pregnant and Kobe positive tool doctors determined that he had to be intimated to perform an emergency c section. Baby Mazel was born on April second baby was Kovic negative. The real problem here was that his father Marvin and his seven-year-old brother junior were also covid positive. So there was no way he could go back to that that that environment that was a real problem school. Before it being intimidated solution was able to. Ms. Luciana. Lira Luciana Lira is juniors. Schoolteacher and she said, help my son help my husband and my baby. Massad listen, Marvin I am willing to help one hundred percent I really do not know this family. Zilly just came to the United. States. I think a year ago and Marvin has been here for six years and junior is my bilingual student. And that's how I met them. When we were able to test marketing engineer, they were both Cova nine hundred positive. This baby would've not stand a chance if he went home with his father with Covid nineteen and junior. His, just a preemie baby. I think that that tells you so much about Miss Lewis character and and her her personality for you to receive a phone call like that I really need to take care of my son, my husband and my baby and she did I mean, can you imagine you received the phone call? She thought that it was a joke that that it was a prank I. Mean. What's amazing is actually that was the first footage of your documentary that we saw the really truly remarkable scene with MISL- era and the baby, and you know she's holding the baby and she's telling you this incredible story about why she took all of this on. To be honest I I'm living. Sure how? I was able to get that that access because she was not letting anyone in her house and she told me, Hey, not even my sister is allowed to be in here. And I'm like well, I'm going to try to be. Is Just GonNa be me I'm going to have a camera. Ms Lira trust me I'm going to try to be you know as cautious as I can be. I think just important that you share that story and I think she wanted to share this story otherwise wouldn't have been possible at all. I went to the hospital with Marvin. Wasn't easy because you know he saw his son for the first time. You couldn't even go him. To. US. And it really broke my heart. After going through such a big trauma not even knowing if your wife was gonna make it, do Pakatani communicated to be. A month of. On the Nights at the baby home. Right, maybe. It was amazing seeing those those early scenes that you had filmed. You know obviously, you guys didn't know how this was gonNA turn out and I remember talking to you sometime before mother's Day and you were telling us that maybe Suli we'd get her baby back. I mean you certainly didn't think it was going to go on for as long as it did was actually five and a half weeks. So tell me about the emotional journey that Suli and Marvin her husband were on you know I think that The story was so unexpected and it had so many twists that I think nobody was expecting it Ms Lear thought that she was going to keep the baby for maybe two or three days. It was very emotional to witness the lives of and Marvin all of them were were positive at that time and the pediatrician said if the baby is going to go back home. Everyone in that house need to test negative, otherwise, it can happen. So you can imagine that the minutes felt like ours you know in the our failed like days to them it was really difficult for for for Suli it was very, very difficult for her because she was going through a lot. You know she said that she had night Mertz pretty much every single night and that she she was not able to get any risk at all You know it's not easy. Imagine that that she said, I didn't have a chance to look at my son you know in I just have A. Faded picture of him and that the only thing I know they do a lot of video conferences. So to say, watts up, that was their main way of communication and missle era. You know she was sending videos every day calling them. You know just to make sure that that bond was was still there you know kind of like a virtual bond. That moment, but it's the law of mom. There was a very powerful connection and you can see it when you see in the scene when they when when she's holding the baby for the first time, I mean, it's just an electrifying moment.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads

"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen

"The right songs all the time. What's your process life stuff going stuff going on in my head? All the time Right now I'm I'm kind of writing all the time. Yeah it comes out very very slowly slower than slug in a trance but But keep at it. Yeah in the past. You worked a lot with lyricist and I understand. He passed away. Is that How do you fill that gap? Or How do you magic working going forward? We'll have always you know always working with John Birla liras host but I always road like half of alerts or usually wrote half alert as and would you have come first. And he would finish them. Generally speaking yeah Generally speaking I would come up with whatever it was that Mary that lyric to that music understood and and you'd have already the framework Melania. Leave yeah the phrasing. Yeah or you know some big notion of that yes would would. How often would a song change from the initial spirit? When writing it does not alone. Sometimes you get way different and a song as a I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA die right in here as long as a life form. It's a you know an alien life form It's organic Actually had a dream A few weeks back while Jerry came to me in the dream and Introduced a song in this song came in and it was like it was kind of it looked kind of like a great big. Rec Room sized ethereal sheepdog and it was big and friendly and came up and stiff me and I did a little bit. Came back at me and it was. It was interactive and and and then we you know then we started playing and singing the song that we we were in it. We were in the song part of it. We were part of that functioning organism tests and the dream. Sort trailed off into whatever into wherever dreams go but That just confirmed my sis. My my notion that held for the longest time that they're a song as a life form in a coming visits us and a income through certain people for whatever reasons are S and it or whatever attractions are and when it's time for it to come it's GonNa come through. You're through someone else. Yeah coming coming to this world and has come into sniff around in visit and And and hang yes and you know those goose characters in those songs you know they come in they tell their stories and and they're they're you know they they just WanNa be heard. It's beautiful just beautiful too when you woke up. Did you remember the song Not Very well. It was a jazz ballad We were singing. We were doing a duet on it when you don't hear many of those Dalit But in this particular case you know jazz ballad do do songs often come to you in in dreams. A lot of MUIRA. That's great the good ones. Yeah what a Gift I. Sometimes I'll have someone come into dream. It's hard for me to to keep them. You know it's hard for them to hang around right. Yeah you gotta get right on and what. I've what I've found is I've sort of made a deal with my little deal with my muse. Yes were you know no matter what time of day no matter what? I'm getting up I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa you know I'm going to PICK UP MY GUITAR. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA get enough of it down so that You know otherwise. Refrigerator taught visiting. Yeah and with the way you'd get it down to record something or might it meteorite. Saw generally a phone makes it real easy these days? Yeah so you'll sing it into the phone. Yeah singing and playing into your own. How did how would set lists work in in the band? Well that's interesting though the way. The dead the grateful dead used to do it is Janna would be his to start or my turn to start and take turns back and forth. We'd take aways yeah and then While we figure out the first couple of tunes that we were GonNa do maybe I three and then would generally come up with what we're GONNA wrap the setup with says right here on paper and then Then while Jerry was singing I had all the time on earth to figure out what I wanted to do next and often as not. I'd try to coax that tune out of the when we were planning when when it was done to route that went up and then he'd be doing the same thing when I was in. And would they always come or did you? Did you have a list of things to draw from you? Just always have him enough looking around or the end I you know toward the end. It was handy to have a list. Because you're the repetoire pretty expansive and and we try to stay up on all the tunes that we've brought around so we have you know the way we did things we you know. We never got around to tune. Maybe once a week. Yes how we'd cover songs work their way into the set Sometimes they just came up. You know under a signature liquor or something like that would Oh we're planning that okay. Here goes nothing. I know that there's some covers that would work their way into work their way around often in over a long period of time. Are there any that that just didn't work? Plenty plenty of weed trial ones. Who Ethic went. We tried to Pig Pen tried zing. And this is a man's world yeah I think we actually did that twice just to make sure that we it was. That bad is in theory. That sounds like that could have been good. Yeah Yeah you know we have no control over those never till you never tell how different were the members of the band. Would you say from each other like music? Wise taste-wise well. We had pig pen. Who was very very funky. He was all about blues and not much else. And then we had phil who was Into classically classically trained and And and Sort of sort of moonlighted in the Jazz World Mickey was a Marshal Drummer. He played martial. Music was a national champion rudimentary. Snare drummer he played one of those big field drums in Hindi while marching billy's I finally figured out who billy's a major influence was and he never he. I pointed it out to him. Any E allowed as I was spot on Was There was a certain era of Ray Charles that that drummer. Yeah I am. Billy Billy captured that lilt and. I don't think he I don't think he even knew he did it. I don't he. He was thinking. Consciously doing a consciously attempting to do that. It just happened and then jury was. Jerry was all over the place you loved Hilo. But he's I think is deepest.

"Jump streit in and speak to a little bit about what you've done leading up to This Istanbul blockchain wake. You had US pull something like this off the PRI. Obviously now a lot of papers tell us a little bit about how you got into the spice and what you've been up to. Yes so I'm like yeah okay digital's been around for about three years now working in the crypt side. We've we've represented some of the largest projects Exchanges want it's you name it like Really really wide wealth across the world globally. And so as you can imagine where we we we're going to events all the time I'm also we have what we have a youtube channel. Tv where I've got stay safe what your parents households big names on that kind of got us into the conference circuit. We would offer like summit and mold some big events in innocence and variance around Europe. And after a while you know another is events when us is more thing you know. Can you help us get speakers? Can you help us get on says? Can you do something I love? You May as well start doing everything at this point. I mean it's not far off apart from the edges logistics. I'm anti. Yeah you're not moving excited. I'm has like a useful. No matter crypto no matter what we say and so. I'm traveling from blockchain blockchain. We of course the conference obviously. I'm promoting my agent. Pr Agency and our clients and it was he trying to win new players. And you know that that really made me understand like what made a conference good. What MADE CONFERENCE BAD? And you know what what what kind of speakers would help educate the space and You know what people want. Keep out and now we're GONNA pull those lettings into Istanbul bunch and I'm really really excited. Excellent my will pretty obvious progression into that through the payout year. At every how you do it I really don't. It's you single. You got kids. I suppose that's probably a pretty good formula for success in that my in that means but trump look why why Turkey. I've got to ask the question. Why is Dan Bul main? It would seem like it's a bit of a stretch for anybody outside of Europe. Obviously anything straining on here in Moscow the world to get a custody your side of the wall off from Europe but zones wrought so why why. Istanbul why why Turkey. What's what's the profile. What's the reasoning behind that so techy as a framing community for football chaining CRYPTOCURRENCY In the in the last year so there's been various reports coming out about how Turkey is leading into the doctrine precursor blockchain and these are opposed by you know leading leading companies like I and J. He's not reports that you know people just putting off Switzer You know there's a lot So for example. Let me just read this off. I mean so. For example the chain things that government is launching the digital Lira. Turkish lira next year. So now it'd be the second company behind China to do so And also they've launched a national go train infrastructure project which is how in Quebec services and various municipal services. Use the chain within Turkey. Now cost you know. Obviously you know this about you. Know to keep politically. But you can't deny that. They are now trying to lead the pack. This could be something fantastic with its economy because you know on twenty six since the failed coup has been struggling You know they had various sanctions They which which vary was was so volatile which lead singer of adoption into bitcoin trading over people trying to make money because they were it was just evaluating so much twenty five invasion as of Ottawa between eighteen which is a huge amount that he's and Yeah then obviously there's also they're also planning to get regulation in this year so that the capital markets or have been advised by the government to come up with Clear Regulatory Framework Kentucky which will allow companies to move INS incubate to to welcome contracts which is very exciting then addition to all of that That's Konya which is the seventh biggest sake. Two and a half million people never actually just announced the launch of a cornea coin. You will to us And you'll be with us up for your services like transport you'll be able to use it for other municipal services you know maybe even taxes stick them now and you know what. We're hoping that our elegance will be able to hear more. About how conference shall we say Look I mean look I think people don't realize outside of possibly Europe and Turkey. Just how big that actually as Ming. I'll looking around searching icy point. Eight one million populates in Turkey and for country like the major not third world a shorts health problems. That's it it does board US problems agents it sort of bring the door full this sort of adoption of the technology and actually using crypto in a sense and building out the blockchain solder things. It millions a lot of people and if we compare that to do by wedgie by. Has I've been talking about. I'm not sure how much progress has been made. But having that you know blockchain's CD digital city or whatever they want to turn they've coined Minnie's temples much large populace than Dubai and would say probably a much greater need to pick this up cost. So it's really groundbreaking. The such a large country is really taking those steps. Do you think Turkey could be or is one of the latest leading countries regard cryptocurrency use and blockchain development. It is it is it. The people don't know about it. And that's another reason why I'm doing this event to showcase Turkey to lead us to put them out I am. I didn't even mention has techie at twenty percent of people abused cryptocurrency so Alabama eighty million. Which I think he has an eighty million now late speakers. That's you know that's a lot of people influence the leading in the whole report including the US Australia all of Europe And then you will sixty two percents of opposed to the currency so so the way that I see things here is not all of these projects. I'm speaking to other in. Asia represent software. Whoever they are the missing huge market here they come up and open shopping Turkey. They could get. They could potentially get adoption that they've been hoping for so long and becomes clear they'll have a a really a safe environment to do so and the other cement. I detect people like they. They deserve this. Trump's been for the last few years You know like you've unemployment is at twenty seven percent which is ridiculous Even Women Supports Sam. Now if you compare that to the you can. Us We're about three and a half so it really shows the for me personally like my intrinsic feelings of this event is that we can help this nation industry. Bring bring growth in employment growth in jobs. You know like we all work remotely these days you know. Let let us help. People get less help. Educate has come into this space And really just grow grow. Grow tikey Gordon Turkish budgets float. Because like. I said you've got these amazing statistics. I've go around Singapore Adams. Say Hey can you name me one Turkish project like no one can do that really annoys me because it's like how how how we getting tough decision and no one of the projects as yoga? It hasn't even more so you know. My name's really is to shine a light on the Turkish ecosystem using the connections that I have that have made of the last three years And then also built strategic officer took his puts on encouraged to build took his communities as we've seen by the way from license of open to office until he into office in Turkey. Various exchanges opened office in Turkey to that they won't release L. Conference by the way which you'll hear more about near the time and it's just getting more and more It's just getting more and more adoption and I'm just I just can't wait to invite friends and family really these days into Turkey to show them.

Regulators Allege Christian-Based Health Care Provider Broke State, Federal Rules

"Nearly men. one million Americans rely on health care sharing ministries to cover their medical bills members of these Christian organizations typically chip in money every month with the expectation that they will be reimbursed when they treatment but multiple state regulators have accused one company of violating federal and state requirements. New Hampshire public. Radio's todd awed. Buckman reports on the efforts to rein in one of those companies spread out on. Keith means kitchen counter. There's a mess unpaid bills with very large numbers. Eleven one thousand eight hundred eighty six for looks like an anesthesiologist. The surgeon eighteen thousand eight fifty four hospital. Stay hundred and fifty two thousand fourteen dollars. Sixty nine cents. Mehan is forty nine years old. DIVORCED DAD living in Rochester New Hampshire his job as an international. Rice salesman doesn't provide health insurance so last year a broker sold them on a company called L. era that markets what's known as a healthcare sharing ministry. It's not traditional. Oh health insurance clearly not Which I've I've come to find out? Meeting signed up a few months later. He had back surgery he says Lira. An entity at contracts contracts with called Trinity healthshare assured him. The procedure didn't need preapproval but afterwards it declined to pay close to two hundred thousand dollars in medical bills contending. His back pain was a pre existing condition. I feel like I was sold a bad bill of goods. You know just I had no idea. After receiving a wave of complaints claims from customers like me in New Hampshire's insurance department issued a cease and desist order last month against a Lira and Trinity for selling what the State calls illegal health insurance points earlier this year regulators in Texas Colorado and Washington also took action against a lira. The company declined an interview request but in a statement L.. Era Forcefully denied the allegations and says it will appeal. The New Hampshire cease and desist order other healthcare sharing groups say Elliot's actions are harming the reputation of the broader industry these ministries have seen rapid growth in recent years in part because of their lower cost. The cost was typically a fraction typically. Well under half and usually closer to a third of what the cost of conventional insurance was. This is Fenton Gruen and New Hampshire contractor. Who's been a member of a ministry great since the early nineteen nineties? He says along with the savings. Many Christians are drawn to ministries because they don't cover abortion services and offer perks like like prayer hotlines for their members grew and says he supports regulators stepping in to stop a company like a Lira. If it's violating the law given the explosive of growth of health care sharing ministries. It's not surprising to me that somebody would try to cut in on that investigation by the Houston Chronicle earlier. This year noted that the CO founder under Valera previously served time in prison for Securities Fraud the company is facing a proposed class action lawsuit in Washington State for alleged deceptive practices. Joanne Wind Volk with Georgetown Center. On health insurance reforms says some consumers are drawn to ministries because of the belief that they'll be better taken care of there's a lot of frustration with insurance companies and some of the hoops.

Troubling: a death in Northern Ireland

"South This economists podcast is sponsored by linked in jobs. Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economists radio. I'm your host Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. A minority of South African people have steadied formal jobs too many, including a large fraction of the country's youth do piecemeal work or are unemployed altogether. We look at the efforts to bring the young into the workforce. And there's a lot of talk about public figures particularly candidates in America's upcoming presidential race speaking, multiple languages, what's with these polyglot politicians. But I. A funeral will be held today for a young journalist from Northern Ireland who was shot dead last week all for the loss of lira. Our hopes and dreams all of her Mazen potential with snuff type a single Barrick. Lira Mckee had been reporting on violent unrest in the city of Londonderry. We believe this to be a terrorist act. We believe it's been carved violent Republicans yesterday. A group called the new IRA took responsibility for the killing it even apologized. The incident was shocking reminder of the fragility of peace since the end of the Northern Ireland conflict known as the troubles. This was an attack on everybody in northern. It. Doesn't matter if you're Catholic or Protestant. British are this is an attack on democracy? The troubles began in the nineteen sixties and painted mostly Catholic Irish nationalists against the British army Northern Ireland police and mostly Protestant loyalists. For three decades violence and terror was a part of everyday life, the turmoil claimed more than three thousand five hundred lives, but in nineteen ninety eight the Good Friday agreement largely brought an end to the conflict today is about the promise of a bright future. Dave, and behold, a line can be drawn bloody past some low level violence continued, but this latest killing has fear and outrage. The funeral today of Larry Mckee is going to feel in many ways. Like, we'll most states occasion. Tom Wainwright is the economists Britain editor where expecting to see the Irish T show that the prime minister will say the president of island the secretary of the UK as well as low two local politicians from Nova Nyland, of course. And so it's going to feel like a big deal, and it really is a big deal in Northern Ireland. This kind of killing of innocent civilian in what seems to have been a terrorist attack something that really has shocked people. It's by no means the gnome since the peace agreements of twenty one years ago. This kind of thing is much less common than it used to be in people here really really shocked by what happened last week, and Tom what can you tell me about the group responsible for misbehaves death, new IRA and its relation to the other groups with IRA in the name, it's it's a bit confusing. Picture it is it really isn't. I think to understand that you've got to go back to the Good Friday agreement of nineteen ninety eight and. What happened? There was that the IRA and most Republicans agreed to end any kind of struggle and take their fight for the United Ireland to the debating chamber of the streets. But at the time there was some Republicans who disagreed with that to this represented, a capitulation, and these guys who are now widely noted dissident Republicans have continued that struggle on a fairly low level. But nonetheless, they are security worry five the security agency raised the threat in Northern Ireland is severe they have continued trying to police officers, for instance. And so why do the new IRA kill Lear mckie? Well, she seems to have been killed by stray bullets. She was watching a riot taking place in the city of Londonderry Derry as it's known to Republicans, and she was watching from next to police come and she was shot in the head and later died, and this riot was kicked off really after police had been raiding homes in the area shortly beforehand seems that they were concerned on the. The Easter rising some local Republicans might be out to coast trouble. And seems that some cycle dissident Republicans is this as a excuse to get that people on the streets and co some trouble and the new IRA said it was an accident and apologized there's some significance to that. Right. There. Is yet seems that they really feel as if that on the back photo of this that agreed which has said, the it's propensity is violence to said that the Republican coups, but they seem to be well aware that locally these kinds of acts of violence in which older NRI innocent civilians killed or injured go down extremely badly and really risk setting that goes back, and we've seen evidence of this already in dairy, the headquarters of a local political party, which is supported by the IRA people being smearing red painted handprints on their offices a form of protest and lately various Republican murals have been graffiti as well by people saying things like not in my name. Name. And so they think realize that this could set them back in a big way. Police also reporting that moving one hundred people have sent them with information about the killing and in a city like Derry, that's really unusual. This is not a place where people have historically been happy to talk to the police about Republican activists. So we could be seeing Quanta change. So do you get the sense from all that then that there is just simply less tolerance for the kind of violence that was so common during the troubles. I think that's right. I think since the Good Friday agreement which was almost exactly twenty one years ago. Many people in Northern Ireland of come to see the peace that's being achieved is enormously valuable, and the idea of going back to that is something that really worries a lot of people. And I think most observers thing that the chances of returns to scale violence, very slim, but any sign that violences on the rise is obviously a worry, especially at the moment with Brexit going on which is causing all kinds of problems for Northern Ireland. We've also got the problem of the Northern Ireland assembly having been suspended now for more than two years. So there's a feeling Northern Ireland is inevitable position so events like this do concern a lot of people that people worry that things are being destabilized that, but you mentioned Briggs in in passing there. Do you think that all the negotiations and the degree to which Northern Ireland has been such a lynchpin of the negotiations has sort of reignited tensions? It's certainly reignited tensions. Yeah. We haven't yet seen a big kicking off of large scale violence or anything like that. But tensions absolutely have been heightened. And it's not surprising because the peace deal made back in nineteen ninety eight really hinged in many ways on the UK an island shed membership of the European Union that help to enable these countries to have a border, which is not just open. But invisible, I mean, if you go there and drive between Northern Ireland and their public of island, you can do so without even realizing that you've crossed the Boda, and of course, membership of the EU means the two countries of members of the single. Markets, and so no customs checks needed and since nineteen ninety eight people know of Nyland being able to choose whether they take Irish or UK possibles in many ways, they've been allowed to feel as if they are either Irish Oprah show oath if they want and so the UK now leaving the European Union really will subject that to strain. And it's clearly pulling the UK an island upon a way that nobody on typically to twenty one years ago and many people particularly in the Republican community. Most of them voted to remain, by the way, think that Britain is in some way reneging on agreements that were made or hinted that twenty years ago, so it is a time of heightened tension. Yes. Tom. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you.

Lyra McKee: 'New IRA' admits killing of journalist

"Last thursday. Twenty nine year old journalist Lyra Mckee was shot dead in Londonderry twenty one years after the Good Friday agreement was signed to bring peace to Northern Ireland yesterday. A group called the new IRA released a statement taking responsibility for the killing and offering it sincere apologies to liars family who holding her funeral today to find out more about the situation on the protests that followed liars murder, I'm joined by Rebecca black who's a journalist with the Press Association based in Belfast, Rebecca who are the new IRA and holiday different from other branches of the group. Morning there and the IRA they're a dissident Republican dissident Irish Republican terrorist group, but they Kim together to eleven grew together. A lot of these smaller groups that were sort of sloughs ING steam and the come together though, they're small numbers. They have being described as the threats by the police service of Northern Ireland's some of their members were involved with real array, which listeners will probably remember, and they responsible for the ball in nineteen ninety which which killed a lot of people. What has the public's response being to the group's admission of guilt? Well, just order discuss. I think the statement yesterday came quite a few days after it was very much enough to fold on an even though it shouldn't apology still seeking to justify what it has done. So buro- responses being. It's not enough. If you're issue any sort of statement, it should be that you're going to spy on the late stage. What would what possible justification can there be? What do they say? Well in their Russian they're blaming the police service and on the on the night. It's all on the night. That killed 'em was a police operation going on. There were searching Heis and based on intelligence and Abida terrorist suspects. The police have combined actually since then and said the review intelligence before the search and they're perfectly happy. It was the jet on should have gone ahead. But these dissident Republicans they say the by the peace coming into an area such as Creggan, and it some way provocative that they're suppressing them. They're perfectly entitled to riots Super Four lire Schultz and was ride in helping that was that was quite a number of petrol bombs thrown up police, and then in the battle this Amana merged, but yet in their Russia there, they think it's acceptable to close riots on to ultimately their Jackson to any sort of any sort of doctors objecting to out of being part of the United Kingdom and there. Of the mindset that learned Heil do Coyote violence until Northern Ireland's part of the United Ireland and their their philosophy. And is there any sense that this sympathy for that point of view, and that people aren't supporting extremists on either side? Well, very very little sympathy far. I mean, it was very different buck in the nineteen seventies. When the provisional IRA were going because they did have somewhat support. This group has very little support. I think after the carrying of killing of narrow in particular, a young female journalist who was competing political opinion chill. All she was doing was just watching that night. That's close to even more discussed. A main there seems to be even a split within the discipline grip themselves because ever since Thursday there have been a number of incidents where Petra ball miss that side, a dissident members Heiss the shots fired another person's heist in Lurgan county, my yesterday, do they seem to be disagreement even within themselves as you said, we know that Staunton the power-sharing agreement broke down of two years ago. I wonder how far the up since of a working assembly stoking, more extreme fringe groups.

It may escalate base home comments from Turkish president who are Turks to boycott was Johnny goods now has been something of a recovery in the Turkish lira. But do you think that could convince Turkey central Bank that it doesn't need to raise interest rates as many analysts have called full, maybe he's good. Convince policy-makers Bob is not going to convince the market that a rate hike is still urgently required that he remains vulnerable. And until the central Bank decides to raise interest rates quite substantially. It's difficult to expect the Turkish kind of stabilize in a sustainable way about from rising interest rates, diplomatic spa between Turkey and the US I would have to be solve tension would have to ease, and it's difficult to be up. Domestic is going to happen based on recent comments from both sides of the conflict. Simitis. Let's do the numbers. Global stock markets are mostly mixed while Turkey's main share index is up more than one percent. Meanwhile, fresh figures from Germany show the economy grew zero point, five percent in the second quarter slightly more than expected boosted by a household and state spending after decades of fuel subsidies prices at the pump. Look set to jump in Venezuela, President, Nicolas Maduro has said prices should rise to international levels. Rinaldo Trump better is Venezuelan journalist based in London. I don't think it will be a particular shock because it's something that has been brought up over time by both the Madero Chavis government. I do think though that a lot of people will see it as proof that Madero has practically given up on trying to have the support of the Venezuelan people. Inflation we know in Venezuela has sought to rates close to a million percent, but the price of oil was really unchanged for many years. Yes. Clearly the Venezuelan economy is in a lot of trouble. Mostly because the government tests completely decimated the ability of the oil industry to produce an increase their production of oil. So they're very few money coming in. And at the same time, the government has nationalized more than five thousand companies that should be producing food medicines. And now those companies have gone bankrupt when announcing this fuel price hike. Mr. Madera said that smuggle is cheating Venezuela out of millions of dollars of oil revenue. Is there any credibility to that claim that's been going on pretty much for the past thirty four years as Venezuelan. Oil and gas have been subsidized by the government.

It's over three percent. It's the envy of the world, but does GDP accurately reflect how the country feels about wealth and financial security. The answer is no.

So what we did is we made a mouth and that mouse eat fat, but it doesn't get fat. So fad, as you know is taken up in the gut, and it is taken up by lymphatic vessels in these are called lack tears. So in normal cases, the fat particles enter. For the electives very easily through easily penetrated pores called buttons.

Now, Jihadist groups which can cross borders easily, but where the information required to stop them does not always do the same reports by our scares e car spun don't Gordon Carreira now to China, where hundreds of people have taken to the streets to protest. Against the demolition of new mosque. Asia Pacific editor. Michael Bristow told me more. This is taking place in a region of China, cold Ning show, which is home to the way Muslim minority. And over the last couple of years, they've rebuilt a mosque is quite grand. It's got minarets and domes who's completed last year and everything seemed to be fine. Then they received an order from the local government to say that it was going to be demolished. They had to demolish by Friday, and if they didn't demolish it by Friday and the authorities would move in local people saw this notation decided to essentially camp outside the most to prevent the authorities getting anywhere near it. So there's been a standoff negotiations are taking place and the reports that perhaps the demolition is being delayed, but there's been no clear conclusion to that yet. Our unusual are protests on the scale in China will lots of religious protests across China. I think the difficulty with this particular case. Is that the authorities say they wanted to knock it down because it hadn't really got the permission that he ought to have, but others the same. Well, you saw it being built. Why on earth did you not say something earlier? I think what's happened here is that the thirties have seen the scale and the styles by Middle Eastern style and got slight slightly would what they try to do is allow religion bookkeeper foreign influences out of religion. And so the style might have with you thought is we see in eastern China when when religious communities have put grand churches with crosses on the that seems to annoy the authorities as much as the fact that these communities exist in the first place. I think the style is a big reason for this dispute. In fact, there have been suggestions that the authorities say, look, if he just tone it down a little bit will allow you the the monster continue standing how to the Chinese authorities in general, feel about Islam, quite wary, really, particularly developments across the rest of the world. They fear that radicalism extremism. Some will will slip across its borders and add fuel to a lot of donning independence movement serve. People won't moral tawny particularly in the west of China weather in lots of Muslim minority. So the very, they wear in. That's why they want to try and keep a, not a leading religion but control it. So for example, there's prescriptions on how long you can wear your beard or whether you can wear reveal or trying to stop school children, not eat enjoying Ramat. I'm really controlling how people react and how people treat religion and to try to make it more less extreme.

"Absolutely. And one of his latest challenges is that abuse President, Donald Trump has signed into. To an amendment to the sanctions that went imposed on Zimbabwe in two thousand and one. Essentially, what they saying is that the one they want free and fair elections, but they also want an improvement in human rights so that they can support any kind of financial assistance in future Shingai Neo cut in Zimbabwe. Hundreds of flights with the budget airline Ryanair have been cancelled because of a twenty four hour strike by pilots in five European countries. The walkout at the peak of the holiday season is the biggest so far over pay and conditions at Ryan air Emily Darshan was one of the passengers hoping to travel today am. I was meant to begin to Gothenburg in Sweden. I was going to one of my best friends, weddings. And as you can imagine, it's her once in a lifetime opportunity that unfortunately we're not going to be able to attend. So we were given two days notice by Ryan. And when we looked on the website that would no alternative flight. When I then cooled Ryan, are they. Aren't able to give us an alternative route. And unfortunately, all of the other flights are in excess of four hundred pounds per person, and we just can't just pay Kathy Lee who's in Brussels reports. On the scale of the strike around four hundred Reiner flights have been canceled today affecting up to seventy five thousand passengers across Europe, pilots in Sweden, the Netherlands, and here in Belgium won't let contracts to be governed by the laws of the nation where they are based not by Irish legislation in Germany where two hundred and fifty flights have been canceled pilots or striking overpay in Ireland staff of walkout in a separate row with pilots arguing, they should have more rights to choose the locations. They're transferred to while working away from their homes. Ryanair has described the strike as unnecessary and unacceptable at harbor is a spokesman for four, sir. The Irish pilot's union. Dan, Damon asked him if the strike was Orion at problem, or perhaps a more general issue with the local. Cost flight industry. I think it's probably a Ryanair problem in the way I say it is this that the airline announced last December that it would for the first time in its history that it would recognize trade unions and deal with industrial relations. Three trade unions representing pilots and other stuff. I think that that was a genuine change in policy and I and we accept that. But I think the line struggled to change its culture to one where rather than simply telling staff that this is what they're expected to do on certain issues about working conditions and so on. They have to discuss with staff and come to an agreement by finding common ground. I think they're struggling with that. The pilots in island today are on their fifth one day strike over the last month. We've made very little progress in negotiations during that period or before it and pretty much dealing with any other company in the Irish industrial relations system over that period of time, we would resolve this problem long before it came to industrial action. One of the specific complaints by pilots is the threat of having their. The home base changed. You know, if you're German pilot, suddenly you're told by the company, all of your flights will begin from Portugal, for example, how how is that happening? Yeah, this is the specific issue that the Irish pilots are in dispute over. So we accepted in an airline like Ryanair which has over eighty different bases across Europe, running from North Africa to the Baltic countries to the Nordic area. And of course, on the west to island, we accept that they're going to have to move pilots between bases from time to time, and that's a common feature of the industry. What we've been looking for now is we we want to see a fair and transparent criteria for doing that. Just now a pilot can be moved thousands of miles from home and family. Simply apparently at the whim of a manager or in in the manage manager could just say, tomorrow you'll move in. We're looking for system that gives some older to that and demonstrates that there's fantas in this election. This occur terrier the that exists and that all pilots have been treated with. Within that same criteria..

He's just tweeted that he's authorizing a doubling of the tariffs on steel and aluminium with respect to Turkey that's just come in in the past hour or so what's impact with that Huw. Well, that will hurt because aluminum and steel apparently will be targeting deter cash construction sector and the recent economic boom in Turkey. The economic growth in Turkey is very much dependent on the construction sector. And if the construction sector is hurt, then Turkish economy will hurt and already because of the fluctuation of the Turkish lira because of the loss in its value, dramatic loss or ready there had been issues in importing of these materials.

That is how a lawyer of the opposition MDC described the disputed vote. At the end of July, the MDC is submitting its case to the constitutional court today with a deadline under Imbaba and law of midnight, an MD Senator David Coltart the international community to put pressure on president Mnangagwa to abide by Zimbabwe's constitution, and he warned the president of the consequences if he called the opposition MDC has a long history of being committed to nonviolence of being committed to the rule. Law of committed to respecting the constitution, and if he listens to to us, then we can still stabilize this country and take it forward. But if he decides that he's going to go to learn that he's to rule by means of coercion. And then we, we have a very problematic future hit. Meanwhile, the opposition politician Tendai BT appeared in court in handcuffs on judges of inciting violence by rejecting president, Mnangagwa victory in the election, at least six people were killed two days off to the fighting clashes between the security forces and MDC alliance supporters who alleged leader. Nelson Chamisa had been roped victory. I'll stack correspondent. Sin guide Neo is in Harare for the latest on the MDC's legal challenge. The deadline is creeping ever closer, but there is still no sign off the MDC alliance lawyers. We understand that they might file after. Lunch, but it's not clear what time that will be, who does have been camped outside. And and the question is, what time will they file? Would they leave it to the last minute or will they will file on time? So this this me Mr. Mnangagwa is still going to go ahead as planned with the swearing in ceremony on Sunday. As he said, he would do. The invitations were sent out to various heads of states around the world, and we understand that fourteen had confirmed that they would attend, but the government has always maintained that that Sunday date was tentative by law. They cannot go ahead with an inauguration. If the MDC alliance files, it's papers today because the traditional court might dispense with the case as soon as possible, either today or tomorrow, but they have fourteen days to to give a judgement. So it's likely that if the NBC does go ahead and file that that inauguration will have to be postponed. Until this matter is resolved in court, what to make of ten diabetes detention and subsequent release on bail. Interesting that president Emmerson Mnangagwa wins out on Twitter yesterday and declared that he had intervened to ensure that tend not was released. MS raised a lot of questions here assured, some people that perhaps he wants to abide by the rule of law. But the other issue is that how much the Christian is how much influence does he have on the judiciary that he can intervene in matters of the court as David Todd, stay in via the MDC hugely influential, especially Tendai Biti. He's a former finance minister. He's influential in Washington. He has the era. So what happens now essentially depends on what happens in in government in the courts here today, but also with the opposition will contest at these results and what comes out of that briefly still many challenges facing the new president?.
