EU could reopen borders to tourists in Covid-19 recovery plan
"With many European borders closed because the corona virus pandemic the tourism industry already hard hit he's feeling a catastrophic summer but it's not just tourists are affected business travel has taken a hit to answer the European Commission the executive arm of the E. U. is introducing a rescue plan or roadmap today to alleviate the pressure on the economy I asked our Europe correspondent Gavin Lee how the road map could help the tourist industry the three elements to it basically it's about in the words of the the commission spokesperson at a briefing but I've had the rights of individuals for the need to rest relaxation fresh chat and see families in other countries not depends of course on the situation the commission says of how bad the extent of the virus is spreading whether it remains fairly common there isn't a second spike but what we're looking at the setting out a roadmap for tourism and travel and holidays as of this summer so some of twenty twenty I know what's and a couple of the areas includes making sure of course it's slow it's progressive there will be some kind which told of guys that if you're going on holiday somewhere in Europe there should be an indication of what all the coveted prevention strategies in each country that you might go to what all the hotel strategies and also there will be a recommendation the individual hotels start to advertise put themselves on the market in what they can offer your average tourist and holiday maker in terms of conflict prevention cleanliness ability to to sanitize things like that but that should be part of the you know the new holiday approaches for example of these old recommendations so that's one of them and the other thing is about analogs and number of countries fourteen countries have said that because of the pressure off the adult industry give you an exam well I am in Brussels the main advice here Brussels airlines have axed are they going to access a quarter will jobs a thousand staff will go into the open a third of the allied fleet will go as well all the giving money as cash back for people who need refunds for cancelled flights because of coverage the idea was to give vouchers no the EU commission will push back in the meeting today to say no you can make vouchers more attractive more appealing but that should be fundamentally principle of the rights of of somebody to have the money back instead so that service a couple of elements that are looking at as part of the the summer travel plan today so if you are within the E. U. and you want to go on holiday can you go anywhere this is a really good points on this is there are two words or phrases that you might still hear more more one is social trouble bubble a social travel bubble the second is a travel corridor so for example this Friday the Baltic states already putting the borders to each other so Estonia Latvia Lithuania what's been relatively few cases along with Finland already booked to travel in and out of each other's countries so for example Estonia relies on tourists from Finland forty percent of its tourists come up from that so this is a big thing and that will mean free movement for all of those people the Swiss national broadcast today have suggested that they will announce later on that the internal borders between Switzerland Austria Germany and France would also reopen for total travel between them so the idea is that that you you've got almost a either social bubble of of those countries innocent people in those countries going on holiday that briefly travel corridors was put to the E. U. yesterday by my Danish Coley there's been talk of Denmark for example saying that they've had a few cases could I have a simple flight path to Greece was also a few cases the commission says that will be up to member states but they will not recommend it and they would also not recommend quarantine if you fly somewhere but you should have to stay fourteen days in a hotel they said there should be no need for that with the way prevention for coverage I should in theory take place on the grounds of get home sometimes as washing it

I'm a little more into it so I'm giving it a little bit more thought than next to nothing survivor. Winners at forty something. I've been waiting for for twenty years right. You're such a nerd. And then I look at the sheet of Mike. How am I losing? Heather's killing me so hopefully get some revenge in today's show because we're doing it throwdown showdown our third party she? She don't think you're going to be vindicated here because this is my country others already said she's going to. She's said to me multiple times in the last couple of days as we been getting ready record this I'm going to crush. You is what she said. I feel very confident. I baby on the underdog guys. Maybe you're rooting for the underdog. Here today I would say my country is definitely an underdog because today during our throwdown showdown we are doing Croatia vs Slovenia. So obviously. If you've listened to the podcast you know which one I'm choosing heavens Croatia. I am Slovenia and during our throwdown showdown what we do is we take opposite sides and we debate which one is better so if you guys like this format we've just put out the last two weeks we we did.

So there are some goodies in there as well so check those out and then of course let us know on social at extra pack of peanuts on Instagram. Who won this battle so half were Croatia Verse Lavinia? Today we save this to last of the part series because this like this is the day new mall the Climax Actually Dana Ma I think goes up to the climbers either way. This is the climax of it we are. We both love these countries but you know Croatia has a very special place in your heart so he has a very special place in my art. So I'm ready to go to war. I'm ready I'm ready for you. I mean when people ask me what my favourite countries I stay Croatia and it hasn't changed in years. We've been there three times. I love it so much. Sure tell us why started off you again? I'm not holding back here at all. I have is actually legitimately stretching out right now as she. I'm radio I'm not holding back here not hold back. I know you all because you say you want to crush Croatia. Well I don't even know where to begin because there's nothing really bad to say about Croatia. It's a gorgeous country. It has so much coastline. I mean it's okay so geographically. It's across the Adriatic Sea from Italy. Italy gets a lot of love for its coast cities all of that. It also is heavily touristed so Croatia. We'll becoming very popular and mortar should still has less tourists. I think than some of the bigger countries bigger most populated or not most populated most touristic countries in Europe. But it just has this vibe where people are friendly. It's just as beautiful if not more beautiful in some of these other countries. I mean we're talking a thousand miles of coastline if you like if you like the beat if you like being near the water this is the country for you. So it is beautiful. Of course I love creches. Well I think Slovene is even more beautiful. Why because it has more going for it as at least as far as for its size so this country punches above its weight more than any country I've ever been to. It is the size of New Jersey New Jersey so means this is New Jersey and yet it has a little bit of coastline very minimal. One town one mile coastline. And it's gorgeous so you can. You can get it you can go to the town of Piron. Cute Little Town Great Food. So you've got coastline there but what makes Lavinia so gorgeous to me is the fact that it's got everything else as well. It doesn't just have the coast. It has lake bled to this day. One of the most beautiful place. If you've ever been in the world and when I saw the picture of lake bled when I was like fourteen or fifteen years old I remember seeing it having no idea how to pronounce Lubiana. No idea where Slovenia was but saying I will go there one day. There is a lake with a church on an island in the middle of it. I will go there. We went their lives up to the hype in person cool so people know about that lake bled. They might have heard about you. Know they might not have known so. Many had a little bit of coastline. Same coast basically as Croatia. Just a lot less of it but what a lot of people don't realize is has the Alps in it as well so you go up to cranks Gorga. You got to some of these errors. You're in the Alps. We stayed at a hotel or this little awesome guest at the foot of the Alps. So you can say in a country. This is New Jersey. You have the Alps. You have stunningly gorgeous on you have one of the best lakes in the world and we haven't even gotten to the picture perfect little posted stand capital of Lube Lithuania. So to me. That feels like a rehearsed arguing. Were you practicing map before we did this? Podcast I thought this was be no preparation. No rehearsal it's been in my head for a long time. I told you on common with the big guns. Come with the beginning. Well for your lake bled. We have in Croatia about you know. I don't know a thousand islands. Yes that's right. Well over one thousand islands one of which has its very own little monastery on an island in the middle of the sea kirk monastery. We didn't actually go there. But I knew you were going to bring up like blood and when we were in Croatia this time we tried to go to put. Bj LAKES SO Croatia while it may not have the elps has so much natural beauty and it does have mountains are much smaller and if you drive quite a ways off the coast you can get to put bj leaks. We went however because it's so popular now we weren't able to get in because it's better to get a reservation. The next time we were able to go in the park was going to be like five hours from when we were there so we just decided to skip it however when we left there somebody said well. You should go to kirk waterfalls because there are actually bigger than put. Vj they're just not as touristed so you can see some of the most dramatic national parks in Croatia with these waterfalls in these pools of just like beautiful greenish blue water. I mean it's just stunning stuff. Just Google at people. I mean Lake Bled. D You have waterfalls.
Number of coronavirus cases continues to grow in Switzerland
"We're waiting today the Federal Council of the Federal Council In a rather extraordinary move from burn last Friday you had four council members Standing up doing live broadcast of the country were expecting to hear from them at a later point today and everyone believes at that point. Switzerland go into proper shutdown a big rise in the number of cases in Switzerland announced today. Eight hundred. I need cases. And what's the mood like the moment? Well fortunately the sun is out. I think this is GonNa be the great savior for many of us throughout this Fortunately this part of the hemisphere moving into proper springtime. So you right now. I'd are set up here or there is There's there's life out on the streets There is there's been no we were talking about over the weekend. Poll everywhere pockets of panic. Panic buying I think there is that sense though that to shut down Is is coming now. What that will mean something different. We haven't seen the same type of situation That we've Does occur elsewhere in Europe. Shutdown down his so far meant that the people that is this is our closing but kiosks allowed to remain open. Gas Stations Banks can remain open. Post Offices Command Open But it does mean of course any points of large gathering That would be closed down botch will there be life that closing parks for example so there in other parts of Switzerland. There is life out on the street. It's just that they don't want mass gatherings in confined spaces were one thing. That could help a little in Switzerland. Is it civil defense system? Well absolutely and what? We're seeing right now That there's been talk that there will mobilize up to two thousand Troops at some point they. They're also looking at standing up. One of the four Military hospitals as well so these are large scale military hospitals six hundred staff in one battalion. So these are really like almost getting a proper regional hospital up and running so one of these will come online as there has been discussion this morning whether Lebron more online but also over the weekend are Marcus. Hippie is out here producing at the moment. He was talking to our colleague. Carlos stillbirth something else which exists your poll which is also civil defense as well so of course people can get called up Of course you know. Men of a certain age can make a choice If you want to to bear arms and you go into of course The military Side of things or is the civil side as well and there has been a simple call up even have someone working In our shop and cafe who got the phone call the other day It had to go and report in so We had a conversation With our car over the weekend whatever. Listen the civil defense system is a group of people which are neither part of the military service but they've actually been selected through the military recruitment to come in to help emergency situations so the civil defense system and the for example in Zurich. It's part of of the emergency organizations such as police or the fabric. They're part of this kind of emergency corpse and the civil defense system. What specialists that the people they have to regular ups and only get called in in case of an emergency. The system is designed for extreme emergencies. Of course this could be war but as well as national catastrophes may be an airplane. Crash could be a case there. Also other cases which to civil defense system comes in to help. One example is desire extre- Parade Big Techno Party in town where civil defense system helps and supports the existing Rescue services or maybe even the police how important and tell us police this system for Switzerland. The system is designed to come in to support and help. When when there's really big demand and in the past assessor quite well worked for example when we had stems overflowing or big national catastrophes so it's definitely still an important piece of emergency preparation and to what about. During the corona virus outbreak in southern Switzerland. To Civil Defense has already been called into support on transport to bring from A to B in the rest of Switzerland. Currently a special unit of the military has been called in but it could be that the government decides to further Colin more civil defense personnel collar. Silversmith talking to Marcus Hippie. Let's go back to Tyler. Briefly Airlines Tyler. Now warning that if they don't get state support on top of what seemed to be absolutely massive job losses in the cases of many carriers a great many of them could be broke within two months. Absolutely be. We've Seen Air Baltic courses the carrier for Lithuania Latvia and Estonia. They've completely Grounded their fleet Same situation with lots And of course probably those high profile stores Scandinavian Airlines Really keeping a couple of essential routes open letting in ninety percent of their staff not go but ninety percent of the staff Of course are also grounded as well then. There has to be then. Of course you know huge discussions right now Paul. I think this is the one thing that we're waiting for you on one side you have. You got the of leadership coming out and of course talking. But what are those medical measures What the containment measures that are happening? But I think a lot of this also needs to be done at the exact same time it but it needs to be sort of second third item when you have these failings of people's understanding from the microphone. Say by the way. What are we doing for for business? In general what do you do if you are a small business owner or a mid size business owner or even own airline it? What type of support is going to be there? And I think that's what we need to see. Certainly the speech writers and the advisors really talking to leadership about because we know this is awful. What is happening in terms of from certainly from from health issues? But I think there's also going to be a serious round of also mental health issues For anyone who sees their jobs under threat multiples editor-in-chief tighter play in

"Was the first woman to get a modern doctorate in mathematics. She was the second of three children an born into a family of wealthy Russian aristocrats. Her father was in artillery general in the Russian army so the family had to move a lot when she was young but when she was around six years old. The family settled at an estate near Russia's border with Lithuania. They're Kovalskaya learned under her English. Governess an Polish tutor. She was good at an enjoyed writing. And even though too much intellectual stimulation it was deemed unhealthy for girls. At the time she read. Ed Books that were in her family's library in fact she said that her father had a quote strong prejudice against learned women and when she was caught with books exc. He punished her still. She continued her studies in though she wasn't the best at math. Initially Sophia had a lot of scholars and mathematicians in her family lineage. By the time she was fifteen she had garnered more interest and proficiency in mathematics. She began taking lessons from a mathematician at the enable school in Saint Petersburg but even though she clearly had a talent for mathematics she could not continue her education in Russia since women were not allowed to attend in higher education institutions. Sophia was able to attend lectures by academics. But she wanted to go to school abroad something. Her father did not support but she needed to get permission to study abroad from her father or a husband so she decided to pursue her goal by getting married to a man named Vladimir Sciutto a paleontology student at the University of Moscow. The agreement was that the marriage was a platonic one. They married in eighteen sixty eight in the next year. They moved to Heidelberg Germany. There Vladimir studied geology in Sofia took math classes at the university her professors had been students of the mathematician. Carl T. Buyer Strauss. So Sophia traveled to Berlin to study with him herself. Her husband stayed behind the university. versity their forbade women from attending fire stresses former lectures but vire Strauss agreed to teach her privately and he did so for the next few years. Kovalevsky ended up writing three doctoral dissertations Envir- stress submitted her work to the University of getting the dissertation on the theory theory of partial differential equations which expanded on ideas I posed by mathematician Augustin. Louis who she is considered the most important of the dissertations so she got her doctorate degree in eighteen seventy four but she still had trouble getting a teaching position so she went back to Russia to live with her husband. They had a child in for a while. They put aside their academic work but Vladimir died by suicide. Eighteen eighty three and soon Kovalevsky began Dan working as a lecturer in mathematics in Stockholm. She taught about inverse functions elliptical integral 's billion functions and. She also wrote more papers. Some of which won her awards she earned a lifetime professorship at the University of stock home and she was the first female mathematician to hold a chair the European university and her later years Kovalevsky pursued a career in writing authoring a play novels.

Food Discoveries from the Baltics
"Food of the Baltic Nation Stone Latvia and Lithuania unknown for many. But the three small countries all have their interesting interesting distinctive culinary culture. So it's about time to get a cookbook. That showcases all discoveries to be made in the region by the North East Coast the Baltic Sea Australian Food and travel for soccer for and shift Simond but judd has written the book called Baltic New and old recipes and he talked talk about it to Monaco's fed onto our Gestapo check I am. I've always been very interested in foreign cuisines and I visited Latvia. Think is two thousand eight two thousand thousand nine and there was something that I found incredibly interesting seeing a buffet of these dishes. I had no idea about and it prompted. Make no more about them and took some notes. And then since living in Sweden visited there numerous occasions and just started to look a little closer and cursor each time and I started compile research and realized there's not many recipes from these countries not documented so well anywhere anywhere so I started to have my little collection of recipes and spoke to my publisher about the idea and and they they liked it and we went for and his interest. Does he live in Sweden. Because I'm curious as I said I don't know much about the Kuzina from those countries now. I know a little bit because I've read your book but is it influenced by Scandinavian cuisine or Germany. Or do they really have their own kind of ingredients and and what what what. What kind of the influence is there? Yeah I would say it's a very interesting mix of the places you just mentioned this. Certainly Nordic touches and the Soviet period had an influence on the cuisine and also Prior to that there was a German influence like recipes. Going way back seem to have more of a German influence. It's it's really the quad mix and then Lithuania. More southern and just above Poland also has little Polish influence. It's really a melting pot of what's around it and I. I think it has some dishes that that are quite unique in that we see in the neighboring countries and I think that has a lot to do with this period of Soviet rule where it almost time stood still and there was a limited pantry and the the amount of ingredients against was obviously not plentiful sir so things would develop that made use of certain products and there awesome unique things and I was certainly taken by drinks desserts. They seem to be very interesting as a foreigner. Because there's things in there that the win familiar things he's like kvass which is also rushing. Meade is very popular being wine. Made from honey. And that's a very strong was strongly admired in Lithuania. I mean talking about honey. There's quite a lot of recipes. We we've hunting. There's one that I mean it's quite simple but I I would never imagine the combination of those two which is basically cucumbers enhance. Have you tried. I would love to try now. Yeah fantastic he have that watery Christmas and then and sweetness of the honey in my research I spoke to obviously shifts producers growers stallholders. Everyone and I had a series of questions and one of them was Naima dish reminds you of your childhood and for many Lithuanians that would be the answer. I remember remember start a summer in the fifth cucumbers and corresponding is. He's honey and so they would sit in the garden. Have honey on cucumbers compass and I got to try that when I was there and and it was a special occasion was really nice visiting some bee keepers and yeah it was delicious and I love those kind kind of simple kind of childhood dishes as well. I mean there's another one that caught my eye because it does look delicious which I think the PG or you're I g it just it just looks so simple. It's kind of some sort of pastry tomatoes inside and that right there like a moon shaped crescent dorm inside they just simply bacon and onion and It's a latvian recipe. That's made around midsummer traditionally but it's eaten all year round. I think but yes. Every sour cream's creams very simple very delicious. Freeze well so it's a nice recipe. Yeah and we're talking here about three countries. Tony Lot fairly twain. You know the books of all all of those countries but what are the main differences or even similarities. Between those three I think they share a similar past and background. Obviously these small differences between them. It's hard to generalize but two of them share similar language. That being this Indo European and then a steiner in the north shares a similar language to Finland. So there's a difference there obviously Estonia. I feel has a little more Nordic influence. That's probably just geographic location. Lithuania further south is Catholic and Latvia and stone. Your Loser Lutheran say this. Some small differences there and let beer is twenty five percent. Russian population stayed after the Soviet time and Lithuania. Lithuania also has little Jewish influence. I'm not sure about it certainly in the food but as the population. I'm not sure today. But that's things as I picked up on him my in my travels and I have to say you being photographer. Of course the book is is just incredible. Pictures are really really beautiful. You know sometimes times you. Of course the recipes are here with beautiful images. But sometimes you think you're looking at you know like a nice story on travel magazines as well or so. He makes me want one to visit those countries way. Yeah that was the idea. I really want to entice people to the region and and for them to be more interested. You there's three very small countries and for some they. They might have never heard of them but interestingly Lithuania was a superpower at one stage it was I think the second largest empire in in Europe and they just have a very interesting history and and a good future ahead. Yeah I think if you could choose you know. Perhaps a couple of your favorite recipes as I said I I want to try the cucumber and honey and also there's beautiful fish we've a beetroot source and page seventy. I was quite tempted but that one is actually was tempted by many of the recipes but I wonder if you have any favorites. Yeah for me I I love I think if you look at seasonally. I love the chill beet root soup. I'm not sure if you saw that striking pink color and it's incredibly incredibly refreshing in summer. It's very much like a good spot show in a way and I think it's a dish that really typifies the region. It's it's got the dairy element which is very strong part of the cuisine and there's a sweetness from the beats and uses horseradish which is very typical ingredient. So I think that for me is is one of the favorites but it's very much a some addition winter. I there's one recipe love which is the hot from Latvia from a coastal town where it's simply smoked cod with cream in potatoes so the quite rich but it's very simple when delicious breath and someone else talking to stolen friend and the only thing he said he felt with frustration to the people you know. Let's say you're in the UK or in other countries. Imagine Baltica has been kind of boring or storage. There's a kind of a PR problem there. But do you think it's changing. I mean you just released. This book. Defamed perhaps could be one of a nice two two thousand twenty trend when it comes to food. The rise of the bout accusing I think certainly the chefs in the Baltic countries. They're excited they're motivated Divided the inspired by what they've seen the Nordic countries do recently and I think more than anything we as those that are cooking at home we have changed our taste in people. Love the pickle things now you know this. This movement of this northern European cuisine is a little more every day than it was say ten years ago after the success of the dining chefs etc and those sort of pickle dishes smoke dishes. which is I think? The pallets of general public those that are interested in food has changed and that changed brings them close to what the Baltic countries cooking so. I think there's recipes in there that people will appreciate you

ECB announces more stimulus and less growth
"Now, starting with an ECB preview central banks takes takes center stage, this morning that descends upon Vilnius Lithuania for his rate decision today's Caroline, just said Bloomberg's peo- skill. Most ski has the preview. The expected to offer generous terms on loans to banks when policymakers. And now they're this after the meeting in Vilnius prison. Mario drug Ethan, like escape questions about slowing inflation and the impact that is going to think pensions could have on the year area Konami with any cutting rate and opening the possibility to follow suit. The could find himself under pressure to deliver more stimulus down the line in Frankfurt gives cutting Muskie, Bloomberg daybreak Europe. So let's just say well Cranfield for my markets. Live team joins us central banks as we say taking center stage, the decision. Will it bring an end to the valley? Very good question. I'm sure a lot of people would like to know about it. Probably depends how the equity market in your decision today. What people are expecting as was mentioned. There is size stimulus of mareo druggy coming towards the end of his term. So he might not get many more chances to help out in terms of supporting European economies, which have been underperforming. So it's expected to offer some fresh long-term loans at decent rates for people that may help to stimulate things, but really the equity market reaction that would probably determine where we go. So if you're a paean stocks take it. Well, I live, so they can get a bit attraction than probably the, the rally we've seen in European bonds will probably take hold. But if the equity market is a bit more. So fit shrugs the decision than the ready will probably continue. So really how other asset classes perform moti Termine, but certainly, a lot of jitters around because also the Europeans are watching. What's going on, of course, in America, as well and trade talks on various fronts. So there's quite a few moving parts of the moment, right in as the Italians kind of puff up their chests, and, you know, double dare the EU to really do something about budgets. It's, it's really a fascinating game

There was an unexpected frost and Turkey that wiped out a huge chunk of the crop. And prices jumped like sixty percent and threatened a worldwide. Tele shortage that's like the fifth horseman of the apocalypse pestilence. Plague no new tell. And I mean, even in the best of times Turkey is, you know, a little bit of an unreliable Rulli. Turkish lira goes up and down the price of hazelnuts can fluctuate accordingly, and it, you know, it just leaves Packers and producers on the hook.

Tom Molnar in his office at the Rutgers University ornamental field lab, he was surrounded by these big plastic Finns just filled with thousands upon thousands of pavements. For example, here's one that has has ridges and lumps and to me. That's that's kind of an ugly looking hazelnut. Whereas something like this here, the really, shiny. And smooth for the past twenty three years. This has been Tom's life. Just sifting through endless piles of hazelnuts in search of that one perfect. Now, we mentioned that the hazelnut industry has a supply problem Turkey has a stranglehold on production. So the obvious solution to that problem would be to find a new place to grow hazelnuts and the east coast of the United States would be perfect perfect growing conditions, except for one thing we would have had a hazelnut industry in the northeast. If it wasn't for eastern Filbert play eastern Filbert plight. It's a fungal disease. It's native to North America. And it it grows under the bark of hazelnut trees, and kind of rots them from the inside infected trees, they develop these tail till cankers on their bark Tom actually took me out to his research orchard and showed me some of them firsthand. So as we look down here, you'll see that there's little fuss Joel's that poke out through. So those are like little mushrooms, those are the fruiting bodies where the scores. Actually be objected from and spread to other trees fruiting body, fungal pustule, go from new talent fruiting bodies. This fungus has been Tom's sworn nemesis for twenty three years that was when he got involved in this ambitious project to develop hazelnuts as this sort of like utopian post climate change food source. Yes. Because hazelnuts in addition to being delicious are this kind of miracle crop there. What is known as a low input crop. Meaning they can grow without irrigation without chemical fertilizers pesticides. And they can grow on. What is called marginal land? Landa would otherwise be useless. Plus, the harvesting of hazelnuts can be mechanized. So it doesn't necessarily require that much labor and a single hazelnut. Tree can be productive for up to a hundred years. The only problem they needed to solve to make this happen to cover the east coast with hazelnut. Trees was eastern Filbert blight and Tom's plan to do that was based on very simple yet revolu. Idea. See his aunts. They've grown naturally all over eastern Europe and central Asia for thousands of years. And so Tom figured that somewhere out there among the many millions of hazelnut trees, the gene for disease resistance that he needed was hiding like a needle in a massive haystack. So he set out to find that gene, we started in Moscow travelled south going through Krasnodar into Sochi and then into Crimea than we flew up to Romania and Moldova. The Poland and Belarus follow that up through the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia Lithuania for seven years, Tom traveled, all over the native hazelnut range collecting specimens, and this was not your typical horticultural fieldwork. I mean, it could involve everything from like haggling with merchants in a bizarre and who's Becca STAN to like sharing a glass of homemade vodka with little old lady at a roadside stand in Crimea once while crossing into Ukraine with eighty pounds of nuts in his suitcase. He. Even got shaken down by the local police they start screaming at me. They start screaming at my colleagues have guns, and this is silly. But at the same time, I had a suitcase full of all the nuts that I so desperately did not want to lose. So I'm nervous about the nuts. I'm nervous. We're gonna get robbed or worse. But you were more worried about the nuts than the money. I was very nervous about the nuts. Those were my babies. Those were his babies band is is really Portas heart and soul into this project. And he knew that in order to make a commercially viable nut. He needed that perfect combination of traits. And so after years of collecting all this genetic material he came back to New Jersey out to his research farm at Rutgers and he got to work breeding. Yeah. Apparently, Tom planted thousands of trees, and then expose them to the eastern Filbert blight and then just waited and season by season. He meticulously catalogued the growth of each individual tree. Taking note of you know, nut quality looking out for signs of disease.
Swedbank chief sacked over money laundering scandal
"Executive of sweat, bang has been fired by the Swedish banks board paying the price for a Rapidly-escalating money laundering scandal. She is the second Nordic Bank chief to lose their job ever Bank laundering scandals which should Millns. How's the FTE's financial editor patching Jenkins? What's nice? I fall. Richard, I gather you're just out of the sweat Bank AGM, and if we can hear any background noises. It's the stage being taken down as neat metaphor for some of the rather dramatic news was revealed earlier today. Yeah. It's been two days of immense drama at sweat Bank. Yesterday was kind of surreal it was just one new allegations after new allegation. The Bank was raided by police prosecutors in Sweden upgraded their investigation from just looking at whether sweat Bank broke insider information rules, whether they'd committed aggravated fraud, which is you know, an extraordinary probe. And finally, we revealed the US regulators probing sweat Bank over the money laundering allegations. And so therefore this morning just minutes before the GM. It was kind of no surprise the sweat banks board decided to fire s- chief executive, but get two bonus on the former chief executive now used to be head of sweat Bank in the Baltics, which is where most of these allegations of money laundering. Come from an really she just paid the price for what's now turning into a hugely de. Imaging's scandal for sweat Bank. And you've been reporting also on the government reaction to this which is pretty extraordinarily harsh as well. Yes, I think it's fair to say that really Sweden's reputation is on the line here. Just as Denmark's reputation was on the line in these countries that pride themselves on extremely low levels of corruption inside that borders that also pride themselves on very high level of trust between individuals between individuals and government, but also between individuals and companies and the problem with the sweat Bank scandal as with the dunce Cabana scandal beforehand is it puts all if that at risk. And so I think ministers in both countries are extremely worried about this trust dimension that if a road's people's trust in society, not just in the specific Bankin question. It's very dangerous. And I think what you see from the government in the post few. Days here in Stockholm is basically swiped Bank his turning into something of a case study in how not to handle live money laundering scandal. So Richard, I know the legal limitations on exactly what we can say here, but what is swept Bank accused of doing. So it basic level. What is come out in an investigation by Swedish public TV SP tea is that internal documents from swipe banks suggests that what they called the high risk non-resident portfolio. So this is risky customers from Russia. Another ex-soviet countries the hundred thirty five billion euros was moved through sweat Bank in the stone you now it's the market leader in the studio, but it's also the market leader in Latvia, and Lithuania. So we're talking about dozens of billions of euros of questionable money flows. US regulators of Austin, whatever its connections to do with a number of no money laundering. Scheme such as the Russian laundromat, Panama papers on offshore companies and Danske Bank and some failed banks such as Latvia's Avio, LV and Yukio in Lithuania. So we're still in nearly stages of really building up a picture of exactly what's going on. But it's fed sakes. What Bank is facing allegations from sort of also school nece reminders of the background to this. Because as you say the done ski- Bank, money laundering scandal blew up several months ago. Now, I'm dates back many years. Of course, how is what happened there linked to these what Bank revelations? Well, it is definitely linked. They both would not banks that went into the Baltics in the early two thousands late nineteen, you know, this was the new land of growth and opportunity, and they were extremely hauled. Hit in the financial crisis. Bowl ticket conham is totally decimated. And so in the recovery some of these banks started making pretty good money. Dansko may just sort of extraordinary returns in the stone year and sweat Bank. Did well is the largest Bank in the Baltics and suddenly the head of dance Kerr in the Baltics and the head of sweat Bank in the Baltics both become chief executive at the Bank together. And then the hit by these allegations, which is basically that Russian oligarchs criminals and people from other ex-soviet countries have used these banks and others to move hundreds of billions of dollars of money through the financial system and into the western financial system and out twelve nobody really knows where the money's gone. It sounds very much as if tempers are running high in the background there. Richard executives perhaps blaming the other for everything going wrong. But just a final Woodham way, you think this is going next. I what Bank or indeed for any other banks in the region. Well, we contain this movie before with dansko. I think it sets the pattern for this. Which is really the you need to change of leadership at the top, and is dense ca found out a change of chief executive isn't sufficient really, you need an outside to come in the head of the board. So I think sweat banks bold is facing enormous questions. Enormous pressure this widespread dissatisfaction with how they've handled this with how they've communicated about it. And then beyond that what you're looking at is investigatory work from US regulators, which can obviously impose very heavy fines and also counterparts in Sweden Estonia Denmark, Latvia, which you take is to go through everything. So, you know, this is a problem that it's going to stay with these banks for very long time and finally other banks gang drawn into this as well. Do you think well today, you'll sing some signs of thatt's as we speak both SEB an Handelsbanken, which the two other. Big Swedish banks a down seven percent percentage. Under those Bankin is unusual because it's the knee wall. New really the big Nordic banks full stock not to have gone into the Baltics it chose the UK. Instead, but regulators in the various Baltic Nordic countries of criticized really all the banks for that controls at one time or another. So it seems you know, the after the financial crisis being a Nordic bang with seen as by postitive thing right now with these money laundering, allegations being a Nordic Bank is a bit of a liability. We'll
The view of Brexit from outside Parliament
"It's been a day of swings and roundabouts for British Prime Minister, Theresa may as she tries to steer Great Britain out of the European Union. The party that's been propping up her government said they would no longer support her deal. Meanwhile, the leaders of her opposition say they may have no choice, but to accept it. Marketplace host KAI Ryssdal is in London this week talking to different people about these uncertain times. And what all this means for the British economy. Kyw good to have you on heard, Kimberly Horia? I'm all right. Where do we catch up with you? I am standing actually in parliament square right outside the houses parliament, Westminster Abbey is around the corner came down. I I guess number one to make point and number two to give you a little bit of a scene. There are some protests going on here. But the point to be made is that these people are just tired and the protesters are looking a little lackluster. They're standing there waving their EU flags or their Brexit. No deal right now flags people here are well, they're tired of this whole story. I got to tell you that. And I have to imagine the folks in parliament are tired of it to action last night, supposedly more votes coming tomorrow. What's happening there? Oh, yeah. Way more votes coming tomorrow. So first of all, let's be clear. This is a political story, but we're going to cover the economics of it. Because no matter when Brexit happens, and frankly, that's in some doubt. Now, the economics of it, the economic impact the business impact of it has already started and is already happening. Just to the politics of it. For a second though, trees me is is in some political jeopardy here. There are votes happening tomorrow that parliament is going to decide maybe what it wants to do and then probably on the twelfth of April. But maybe on the twenty second of may who knows the UK is scheduled now to leave the European Union. If you know nothing changes in the next forty eight to seventy two hours, which is a gamble, right? Things seem to always change with Brexit. But speaking of those changes we expected that deadline to be this Friday, which is why you're there right now. So why? Are you still there right now? Well, we're here because as I said, the economic story has already started, you know, we've been out talking to people for what three or four days now here just to snapshots. We went out yesterday and talked to a guy. He's an Italian gentlemen working here for fifteen years runs, a fashion company. He imports fabrics and designs and materials from all over the European Union. And he says he spends twenty five percent of his time dealing with Brexit and the ramifications for his business talk to another guy at a pub last night, who's in the food importing exporting business. Right. He says eighty eight zero percent of his time for the past year has been spent dealing with Brexit. And so when you think about not only the government concentrating on Brexit so much, but businesses concentrating on Brexit. That's real impact. When these folks are having to do this at the same time as they're trying to run their business, right? It must be exhausting. But at the same time like what what other vibe are you getting out there? I mean, if there are protesters, I'm guessing there's some anger. To there is some anger. I think more than anger really there's frustration. Right. There's great political frustration. There's great as I said economic frustration. And then you look at the people who voted to leave, right? And who knows when or if it's going to happen? One of the things we did Saturday when we got here is we took a train up to Boston England. We went to Boston because that is the most pro Brexit city in the UK seventy five percent of the people voted to leave for them. It's a migration story more than anything else. Right. The folks in Boston have seen an influx of mostly eastern. European emigrants lots of folks from Poland and Lithuania. And the catch for them is this they are a labor force. Those folks are and they have revitalized parts of Boston which has fallen on some economic hard times. But also the locals the the folks who have been there for a while. They're seeing crowding in hospitals. They're seeing crowding in their schools. And so while they want that economic gain that they get the labor force that they get from these eastern Europeans. They don't want the crowning that happens with extra people in their community. Right. And so we are now looking out for those votes tomorrow. Yes votes tomorrow in

Danske whistleblower says big European bank handled $150 billion in payments
"Scale and scope of the Danske Bank, money laundering scandal. We open with a clip from whistleblower. Howard wilkinson. Not to spend too much time on this chart, but you can see this ten banks ten banks there. I think how many countries are. We got Russia. This you Ania Estonia, Denmark, US, we've got European subsidiaries is a lot of countries involved. And in the case of this Danske Bank, money laundering, scandal, they all failed. It's not just stonier and not just their Mark. Every single one of those banks had an obligation to check the money that was going through them and every single one of them failed. Think is important to remember that we're not just talking about thirty money going through Danske Estonia thera to other Danske units in vote Lithuania and Denmark, and I think very important is to look on the foreign no one really knows where any of this money went all we know is that the last people to see it with these three banks in the US there. The last the last check. And when that failed the money was into the global financial system. It was clean. It was free.
