But first let's tell everyone a little bit about who you are and what it is you do. Well thank you very much for having me and you said my name is monica. Carballo a botanist and they pay biologists and i started the evolution of tropical rainforests using the plant fossil record especially leaf. Oh so. I have undergraduate in biology which is in columbia and i always knew. I wanted to study plants so since i was a very very young little girl. I had this book in my house. You know basically told was reading and talk about you know these little green package that leaves had could turn on light into Sugars and it was just fascinated by that. Like oh my god.

Biden and Putin Agree to Extend Nuclear Treaty
"Biden had his first call with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Biden did not shy away from raising concerns over the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, cyber espionage and the bounties on American troops. That is a big contrast with the open admiration former president Trump expressed for Putin or joined now to talk about it by NPR's Lucy in Kim in Moscow. Hi there. Listen. Morning. So what exactly did Biden and Putin talk about in their first phone call? Well, The main thing they talked about was the new start treaty. This is the last nuclear arms control treaty between the United States and Russia, and it literally expires at the end of next week. The Trump Administration tried to add new conditions to the treaty in its negotiations with Russia that failed, and now there's not any time left and it looks like both sides are going for a straight five year extension as provided for in the treaty. As for the other things they talked about. The Kremlin emphasizes in its readout that they talked about cooperation in fighting the corona virus and bilateral trade. But the White House readout Aziz you mentioned brings up some of the more thorny issues like Alexei Navalny of Russian election interference. And the recent cyber attack on the U. S government. So the Kremlin was much more diplomatic and conciliatory and its tone while it seems the White House was much tougher, so some mixed messages, they're probably no surprise under the circumstances, though. And we know Lucien that Biden has met Putin before when Biden was vice president under Obama, But what do we know about the personal relationship between these two men? This is not an easy relationship. I don't think there's any love loss between Biden and Putin. But all the Russian experts I've talked to say Putin is also pragmatic and he's ready to do business. And in some sense, he's really desperate to get the attention of the United States. You know, Despite all of Trump's admiration for Putin, he left relations in a really bad place. The last time we know that there was a phone call between the Russian and American presidents was six months ago last summer. I didn't understand the U. S needs to deal with Russia and he's in a hurry to extend the new start treaty, but I think it's very telling how he made this phone call. He did it after Antony Blinken was confirmed as secretary of state. And as Blinken and the other foreign ministers of the G seven condemned Navalny's imprisonment. Besides that, quite symbolically. Biden also called the secretary general of NATO. Yesterday. This all sends a very clear message to Putin that the US is again working with its allies and will very loudly criticize the Kremlin. So as we've said new administration, very different approach to Russia and many other things. How should we expect US Russia relations to change under Biden? Well. Biden called Russia the biggest threat to U. S National Security and its allies during the election campaign, and the statement was heard in Moscow as well. Nobody I've talked to here expects and relations to get any better. So in the short term, it looks like both sides can agree that renewing new start is a win win situation. But in this phone call with Putin, Biden also alluded to a lot of the huge stumbling blocks that lie ahead. These are issues that won't go away and will dominate the bilateral agenda. NPR's Lucy and Kim, Thanks so much. Thank you.
How to Stand Out in a Fitness Revolution with Khalil Zahar
"Today we'll be talking about how to stand out in a fitness revolution because we are parts of a fitness revolution. I can tell you that right now. I mean i've got peleton in my gym right here on thinking about getting a mirror i mean. There's there's a lot of things that are going on. In this world it is a revolution so khalil. That leads me to my first question of why boxing like did you see a trend in the boxing space or is this more born from a passion for the sport. Yeah it's a great question. You know our story really tells that answer well so a lot of people know us for fight camp today but we actually originally started with a product called hicks so h. y. k. S which was like a terrible name But basically are. I started boxing in my life. Pretty late when it was about Twenty one years old and you know my background is actually more in soccer. But i really wanted yet. I fell in love with the sport. And i wanted to compete in studying competitive sport. The twenty one years old. It's it's you know you're kind of behind so at that point. I really wanted to shortcut my way to the east of lucien possible. That was very really adamant about you. Know having the best training regimen possible really tried to optimize single aspect of it and that led us know me to do you want to measure myself on a regular basis and there was not a lot of measuring out there for boxing specific stuff so we created this first version of the product. That's our punch trackers you with them on your race. The calculate the types of country throw measures the speed of every punch and you could recreate performance profile it and that went on to be a very successful product elite community you know. We had multiple olympic teams using it a lot of pro boxers in pro ufc fighters using it And then because boxing anime kickboxing Is a very special sports. Where ninety five percent of. It's not like ninety nine percent of the people that engage in it actually don't entering the ring and get hit but just do it for the fitness aspect of it so we can you know our initial products stuttered to spill two very different. You know typical customer and that kind of drought. It drew us into the fitness world. Fire nation. i really want you to just think that. Hey there's multiple ways to kind of make your start. make your splash. Is it because of a trend or is it because of a passion can it. Maybe be a combination of both. I mean that can kind of be where a zona fire lies. And they can really be a spark. And then of course lease to we can flag ration- and khalil for you. Since you started fight camp how have you seen the connected. Fitness industry evolve. How would just are connected to other people live or you know whether we've got stuff strapped on this. This is kind of connecting all of our stats. What we're doing here. I mean are people working from home. Instead of gyms is actually become the norm. Absolute thing it. It will be for portion of the majority of the portion of the fitness community. I think we're still you know like obviously with covid things have been accelerated loved. But you know we really believe that in the long run working out in a workout room makes a lot more sense to have in your home the same way. You actually have living room in the same way. You have a home theater in a big screen. Tv and a kitchen. We think it's going to be an extension part of our living spaces just because it's not something you you you're doing only once a month you know like a good fitness routine will engage in it at least at least three times a week so you know having to add friction every time that you have to do this with the commute and having to hit the class right on time where it starts. We just don't think it's aligned with the frequency in which you have to engage with it so that's one aspect. The second aspect is like home fitness. Home fitness is very popular today but it started a long time ago You know. And i'm sure some people remember jazzercise tai-bo that was really like the the beginning of the category but you know it led to a lot of like scan products especially specifically like in the late nineties. A lot of infomercial at the end of the night like black and white. And you don't train trying to target people that really wanted to buy a dream but now this silly inc a fitness and a healthy lifestyle and i can feel that this new generation of companies are lot more thin. -tic they're genuine. They're offering a better way and they're not targeting someone who's you know trying to press on the fact that you know you may not feel good about yourself. Look at all these people in shape. But they're they're targeting a healthy lifestyle. And i think they're building the products accordingly as well. I mean khalil. It's critical these days to stand up above the noise to be unique from your competition. I mean that just every industry a hundred percent across the board and let's be honest. Cop is fierce in the fitness space. So what specifically have you done to make fight camp standout. We're yet to see a serious competitor in boxing and kickboxing right. Like we. You know we. There's some concepts out there but you know when we started it was not about. You know trying to beat the competition. It was more. You know like there's a very unique opportunity here and being the first to bring a connected experience to boxing and kickboxing from home. And you know. We thought the power of teaching people how to do boxing. Well was also like you know a statement for you. Know the growth of boxing with a lot of franchise that were growing as well. You know like pre covid. Boxing gyms and kickboxing gyms. The nation were growing very very fast. It was becoming a very big fast-growing exercise that was gaining in popularity. But you know. Boxing is not easily. You know it's not easily accessible in terms of flake. There's a lot of technique you can just get a bag and hit it but it is not proper boxing. You actually have to develop the foundation you have to. You know work on your reflexes and then you have to know why you through a certain bunch and why you don't throw that certain bunch and how to move so we wanted to provide in the centric experience and at the same time naked interactive and. There was nobody else that was doing that at a time. Fire
Saudi women's rights activist sentenced to prison
"Used a BBC World Service. Let's turn now to reactions to the sentence, handed down to to one one of of Saudi Saudi Arabia Arabia is is best best known known women's women's rights rights activists. activists. She's She's the the Jane. Jane. I'll I'll have have flu. flu. Probably Probably activist activist who who campaign campaign for for women's women's rights rights to to drive drive has has been been sentenced sentenced to more than five years in prison by a special criminal court on that call was actually set up to try terrorism charges. It's an absolute was arrested in May, 2018 just before women were given the right to drive. Saudi authorities deny her arrest had anything to do with that issue. She was convicted of various charges, including trying to harm national security. In advance of foreign agenda all denied by her that speak now to her sister earlier. I'll have the welcome to news day earlier. Thank you so much for joining us. I mean, you had you and your family, of course for continuously Against this sentence against her imprisonment. So five years and eight months. What do you make of that? Hi. So first of all, it's five years and eight months. But if you do all the calculation because she spent already three years almost three years in prison on there for two years and a half she she voted Meteo stay in prison, eh? So it means that she can be freed by next March. 2021, however, Login T really was very, very sad when she heard the news that the sentence because for her, it means that the court consider her as terrorists. And that's why she's going on appeal. She will appeal. Um s O in order to obtain her innocents. Okay. And what do they based that on that charge on? What exactly are they saying that she's done to actually have this charge of terrorism leveled against her? So if you read the charges, it is. There are so many charges, for example, applying for the United Nations, Uh, tweeting on Twitter and using social media to advocate for women's right. There are everything related to her activities on also being in contact with international NGOs like A mysterious into a Miss Stanton on the international or Human Rights Watch, etcetera, but also contracting, for example, the UK Embassy and contacting that European Union representation in Saudi Arabia and they consider those two entities or was also Netherlands. Those three entities as terrorists of foreign entities. So it is a bit strange. They are allies and at the same time considered as a terrorist Indeed, yes, that's that's an argument that has got many contradictions in it hasn't it and also that the court dismissed planes that she had been tortured whilst She was held now you would dispute that. Exactly. So it was two other whole process and the acceleration off the trial started almost two weeks ago and into its ago. It was mainly about the charges against the grain. And when that don't say OK, bye. Next session, I will pronounce that the verdict. And she said Lujan said Okay, but you never investigate on the church. Er how? Come on. This is okay. We will start and the next day It was, um, a to the regular courts at trial regarding the church er and two days after they said Okay, we did the investigation and we are Conclude that there was no torture. So it was you say, and she says, And she says, What exactly happened to what your detail is quite horrific. It is extremely shocking. So it's impossible to imagine that such things could happen in prison. And especially, I mean When we say Saudi Arabia we know that the situation off women but also the women. We try toe over protect themselves. Sometimes it is impossible to imagine that men they do all these bad things to a single women on a so she was even sexually harassed, electrocuted. It's hard to eat. It'll, uh, getting very sick and yes, she was shaking a difficulty to breathe Exeter for a couple of months. And of course, she was incarcerated just shortly before women or her campaign to allow women were one of the things allow women to be able to drive in Saudi Arabia actually got the go ahead, so she hasn't experienced that. But she can Be released from jail as you say the release convey as early as as the spring next year, But I guess if she wants to carry on campaigning, that would be a problem for her. She may end up back in inside jail. So what is she communicated to you? She intends to do Who's she looking talk to to help her. Well, First of all the main, you know, you need to choose your battles, certain points. So the fight she's doing right now. She is T o to prove that she was tortured. So this is the first thing and also to get her innocents. So I guess, uh, doing those fights. It is her priority for the time being. We will see later on Okay. We're good to talk to you. And we will obviously be following that story very closely to find out what happens to Lucien. I'll have little on her release. That's a sister Talia. I'll have through. Thank you for talking to me today.
France takes careful vaccine approach to counter skepticism
"Happening. I in britain in america that simply because of the regulatory approval prices european medicals agency hadn't quite finished its testing. It wanted a bit more data onto the study studies little bit longer. And so the vaccination has been approved by the block and will be rolled out by the block in a unified effort. Yes what happened. Is that the eu father. European commission has set up a central purchasing arm which has bought roughly two billion doses. Vaccines from many different manufacturers. Among advantage of this system is that because of the enormous purchasing contracts the prices sometimes been a bit lower than in other places and having bought them as they become delivered they will be handed out to the european member states strictly in accordance with that population. And how about that sort of national level roll out how. How is that progressing. Already how do you see it. Progressing future well. The interesting thing will be with the benefit of hindsight to see what the best way of doing this. Every country is doing it in a slightly different way so for example in bulgaria. Medical workers got it first in germany and learns the very old. I in the czech republic. The prime minister andrei bobby. Scott i now he is himself ferry olden and somewhat overweight and probably did need to have the vaccine but he clearly jumped the here on the other hand. You could argue in countries. there's liable to be a bit suspicious of vaccines. It makes sense to have a high profile vaccination of a public figure because there's a fair bit of vaccines skepticism around this a great deal of vaccine skepticism around france according to the polls is one of the worst offenders here and they routinely i. I've seen number sang as high as forty percent of french. People say that they want to have this vaccine. And so all of this discussion is predicated on the biotech vaccine. But others are in the pipeline. I mean how do you see that playing into the dynamic here. Yes of course. The one that people are most interested in is the oxford astrazeneca. one because it's far cheaper than others typically costs about two two dollars rather than twenty dollars a day. Spur but patsy for more important it can be stored at normal temperatures. The fis vaccine have to be kept very cold temperatures indeed so it means the vaccinations can really only take place in hospitals or well-equipped centers. And it's much harder to get out into communities. There's a french well made by sun. Ofi which i'm sure will be pushing very hard to to get rolled out sued the other ones too including some wants from china and russia which some countries in europe a key to take because they're cheap and because they may be available but i don't think they will be very widely taken up and on that matter of availability. How is that unified distribution effort playing out eu solidarity over the purchase and distribution of vaccines is a bit of an issue. The european commission wanted this to be a great european project with everybody following the rules and the commission doing all the buying and selling the prices and having it out to everyone. And i think they sorts. I'm afraid to say as a great sort of propaganda coup if could pull it off and they more or less have pulled it off. But we've seen impatience in a number of countries germany in particular who say hungary actually one or two others. They're worried that the eu hasn't bought enough of the first one available. That's defies the vaccine said. They have bought their own supplies. That is very bad. In a way the whole reason why the eu went down the suit in the first place. Was i difficult to keep prices life but also to make sure that you didn't get into a situation where every country was bidding against each other by much more than it needed so there has unfortunately been a bit of that but on the whole the system seems to have worked pretty well. I think the biggest problems actually would. These drugs are log to be availability so much as ability to actually get the stuff out that and with that in mind then do you think that. This approach has increased european unity or just given more opportunity for divisions to arise. I think on the whole it's been a plus for the e you sort of as a central organizing principle that that seems to be pretty much the way the singers in brussels they see this as a bit of a triumph that they got everyone more or less to the start line more or less the same time. There's been a bit of teaching but not too much. The interesting thing will now be. Do they use this as a way to build up further. You wide healthcare competences. So will it be more of this coordinated by will be be more of this planning for pandemic preparedness and for instance declaring health emergencies on an e. You roll the leaving it to the national governments spaces. So yes i mean. The bureaucrats in brussels never miss an opportunity to build their empire fair enough. That's the business that they're in. And i think that if this goes well that will have helped that person long a bit and as opposed in in any case getting these things out and to the people throughout europe couldn't have come soon enough we all really at a very very bleak point in the even lucien of the pandemic in the second or even third wave. I've had three hundred fifty thousand people in the eu. Already dad's up. The death rates in germany are close to a thousand today that set the whole phenomenon of creating and manufacturing and distributing vaccine in under a year is pretty remarkable. We lose sight of that. But it's still been an awful awful tragedy.
Congress Passes Covid-19 Relief Bill With Funding for Live Music Venues
"In Congress, a split government putting differences aside long enough to vote through a $900 Billion Cove in 19 Relief Bill A B C's Elizabeth Chelsea in Washington for months of gridlock, Congress has passed a massive spending bill that will Keep the government funded and provide $900 billion in much needed economic relief. The bill is now expected to be signed into law by President Trump. The agreement includes a one time payment of $600 for individuals making up to $75,000 per year. A family of four could receive $2400. It adds $300 in weekly federal unemployment benefits and provides nearly $300 million in aid to small businesses, plus more than eight billion for distributing the vaccine.

Earlier this month, the mark is performing Arts center announced that it lost an estimated $7 million since the pandemic began back on December, 4th Governor Tony Evers announced $15 million in state grant funding that would be split up among 96 venues across the state.
Why Do We Seek Comfort in the Familiar?
"The band's. I love the books and movies of already read and seen the poetry that i love etc i wonder if there is existing research that explains that is common and also whether the need to find comfort in the familiar increases with age and conversely whether the desired try out new things requires both a positive outlook on life and the physical energy to do so. So let's start there. Angie what say you to that query. This is such an interesting and deep question. There's actually a lot of research on the idea of finding comfort finding enjoyment in things that we've done before so one early finding that's relevant here is called the mere exposure effect. This is the idea that merely experiencing something was second third or fourth fifth sixth seventh and eighth time the more you're exposed to it the more you like it without anything really changing so even if it's something that prima facie you may not have thought you'd like or maybe even didn't like that exposure makes you like well. The original psychologist is robert science and he would show people in his studies in nonsense syllables. They didn't really have any meaning. And the first time you see a probably have more of a neutral response but then the eighth time the nighttime it's like you like it and you like it more and more with more exposure which is really remarkable. It is remarkable. It's interesting question to me too because in a way it's obvious why. Why do you think that is well. Because if you're feeling uncomfortable you would seek out the opposite which is comfort and the familiar is more comfortable almost by definition than the novel right. I guess i was connecting familiar and comfort in a way that maybe is an obvious but to me it felt obvious but on the other hand you could also imagine that during tough or unsettling times you'd want to stir things up to read or watch or explore new ideas that may help you get into a new frame and take your mind off what's distressing so i can see both sides but i have to say i totally identify with masha and i do the same. I'm curious if you do angela. Yeah i mean. I like most human beings in times of stress tend to seek the familiar and the comfortable and the lower risk. Love actually probably the greatest film that's ever been made and every time i see it and i can't even tell you how many times because it's been so many i feel comforted. It's like a warm cinematografica hug. Is it a romcom what you've never seen love. Actually i've heard of it. You've never seen love. actually. I don't see a lot of movies. Maybe that's why i'm so uncomfortable. The gist of love actually. It's like several intersecting love stories. You had me intersecting. Okay that says and each of them has aspect which is bittersweet and get a humorous. But the thing about this movie is you know what's going to happen. You know that you love what's going to happen and instead of that making it a diminished experience. It's almost better the team at the time. I don't know if this is just a pandemic coping mechanism. Actually i think there is good research that suggests that's pretty universal so somewhat argue that emotions like fear and also emotions like sadness. Get us to withdraw a little bit to that which we know is going to work and conversely happiness and safety and contentment tend to get us to be a little more venture. Som what's called broaden and build theory. This is work. Barbara frederickson and others. So i think we're all in a kind of state of uncertainty. That makes us want to retract a little bit. Even if you're right even sometimes trying something new might be exactly what we need. Can you tell me a little bit about this. Broaden and build theory which. I've never heard of yes so well. We know why we have fear like if we didn't have fear we'd get eaten by a tiger and we also know why we have the cousin of fear anxiety. Like oh i'm anxious about this test or i'm anxious about this thing is going to happen so i prepare for it more. All the negative emotions had been catalogued understood in terms of their evil lucien airy function for survival. So barbara. Frederickson is a psychologist who wondered. Well why is it across culture that we have certain positive. Emotions like happiness contentment surprise. Like aw and so forth. And that led to broaden and build theory which she's spent the rest of her long and storied career studying which is basically the idea that when we experience these positive emotions they are assigned a signal. That things are going well. And therefore now is the time to broaden and

Early Mammals Had Social Lives, Too
"Six million years ago a group of small mammals huddled in a borough in. What's now montana. They were good diggers most likely furry and petite. They could sit comfortably in the palm of your hand. I mean if you saw them running around today you probably think it looks like a small rodent of some sort like a chipmunk or or a a mouse or or something like that lucas. Weaver is a mammal paleobiologist at the university of washington. These little creatures didn't belong to any of the three main mammal groups on the planet today. Which are the placental. Mammals like us monitoring like the platypus and marsupials like koalas and kangaroos. Instead they belong to another now. Extinct group called the multi to berkowitz their teeth. Is what really distinguishes them from. From any other group of mammals they have these really bizarre molars with these multiple bumps on on the teeth which is where they get their name. Multi typically it just means many bumps. weaver in his colleagues have studied the fossilized skulls and skeletons of these animals dug up in montana. And they've given him a name. Philippe amis prime. Mavis friendly or neighborly mouse. The details are in the journal. Nature ecology and lucien. Weaver says drought or climate. Change may have killed the animals though. It's hard to be sure. But the critters were fossilized together in ways that suggest they sought out each other's company. That's a big deal because it's commonly thought that social behavior didn't arise in mammals until after the death of the dinosaurs. Ten million years after these smokers hung out together the narrative for decades his been that mammals that were living during the dinosaurs were mostly solitary rat like creatures that were kind of scuttling the night under the foot of dinosaurs. In so the fact that we're finding these multi berkeley mammals totally unrelated ancient group mammals. That's apparently exhibiting social behavior means that this was probably not uncommon among these early mesozoic mammals. And it kind of changes. The narrative of sociology is somehow unique to placental mammals. Even today social behavior is relatively rare among mammals but these findings suggest the need for company in some mammalian species is an ancient
What Does A Biden Presidency Mean To US Foreign Relations?
"Might Joe Biden's presidency mean for US foreign policy with us, now three of NPR's international correspondents in some of the regions that are most consequential to the United States? NPR's Emily Fang is in Beijing. Lucien Kim is in Moscow and Jane Arraf is in Erbil, Iraq. Hello to you all. Good morning. Morning. So, Emily, let's start with you. The relationship between the U. S and China right now is quite tense. How was news of of President Elect Biden's win received in Beijing. Well, there wasn't much news because two days after the election results were called noticeably Absent is any official reaction from China's leader, She Jingping, He's not put up a message. By contrast in 2016. She congratulated Trump hours after the race was called this year. Foreign Ministry has dodged every question we've had for comment on their views about the election, and the silence is not because China prefers bite in over Trump, Trump of replied, And it's more out of an over abundance of caution because Trump has not officially conceded. Seven China's view It does not want to take a side if you will, and until someone is definitively inaugurated, and Trump still has more than two months left in office so he could put significant pressure on China. Still, if he's provoked Okay, So China's taking a wait and see approach Lucy and there was all of this concern about Russian potential Russian interference in this election. We didn't see much of that. How is Moscow, reacting to the prospect of a Biden presidency? Well, it's interesting. It's very similar to the situation in Beijing here. The absence of any congratulations from President Vladimir Putin has been noticeable today. His spokesman told reporters that Putin will wait for official results because Trump has not conceded and wants to dispute the the count in the courts. One prominent Russian who did congratulate Biden, his opposition leader, Alexei Navalny. He's recovering from a poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. The day after the U. S election. Navalny went on social media to say that the suspense about who Would eventually when the race was evidence that America's elections are real, but officially on state TV. The main message is that this election was marred by irregularities and fraud. So in a sense, not that different from Russian elections and the messier the transition of power is in the US, the better it is for the Kremlin because the US stops looking like a model democracy. Well, that's interesting. Jane, China and Russia both taking a wait and see approach did Iraqi leadership say anything this weekend? They did. They generally welcomed Biden's election. And, you know, there's not expected to be really a dramatic or immediate change in policy. One of the big issues here is withdrawal of US troops and Biden like Trump is in favor of those, But I gotta be honest Officials here are breathing a sigh of relief. You know, one of them put it. Will no longer be one tweet away from learning of major foreign policy decisions. And then there's the fact that Biden you Noah's head of a CZ, a member of the leading member, ranking member of the Of Senate Foreign Relations Committee and then the point man on Iraq. For then President Obama knows the leaders here and he knows them well, and that will make a difference. I spoke to one senior Iraqi official who said he's dealt with them in years for years. Sorry, and and the thing that stands out is Biden's essential decency, he says. Decency. OK, Lucien Joe Biden known for his decency, Yes, but unlike President Trump, he does not seem primed to like Vladimir Putin or to soft pedal things with Russia. How might his election change the U. S Russia relationship? All right. There is no expectation here at all that Biden will be easier on Russia. I spoke to one of Russia's leading foreign policy experts fielder Lukianoff about what he expects from a Biden presidency. They don't think that many people at Moscow believed that the U. S will be able to be back to the old good days of liberal order as it was in 90 Sorento Seldon's, But the rhetoric will be ah, muchmore like Obama or even Clinton spirit. So in other words, the expectation in Moscow is that Biden will bring up human rights and democracy and also take a greater interest in what happens in the former Soviet Union. There is no love for Biden in Moscow. He met with Putin when he was vice president and has been very critical of the Kremlin. But those negative feelings aside, there is also a certain trump fatigue in Moscow. There were really high hopes for years ago and today U. S. Russian relations are at their lowest point since the Cold War. So there is some hope in Moscow that Biden will be more predictable and be able to start a sober professional dialogue on pressing bilateral issues of the first one that comes to mind his arms control. More predictable. Emily might also be interesting or helpful to China, right because it's been four sort of madcap years of trade wars and overnight tweets. And yet Beijing's position in the world is different now than it was when President Trump took office, isn't it? Yes, it's gone from what was then A developing regional power, too, in the U. S has eyes and this is accurate. A global competitors and that growing more negative view has led the US over the last four years to sanction Chinese officials, major Chinese companies and to limit the number of Of Chinese people who study and work in the US, But within China, you have the inverse of this negativity. China's had this surgeon self confidence since 2016. It's controlled a corona virus pandemic. It's produced some truly global companies, and that gives Beijing a sense that this is China's time to shine. And right now we're at this hugely uncertain moment in the relationship trumps refusal to conceive means that there's even warn certainty because Beijing cannot decide what its next move is going to be right now. Okay. If China is under the impression that it is, it's time to shine economically makes a lot of sense. Does a president Biden change that in any way? He could. Biden is expected to continue to push China and human rights issues such as Hong Kong civil rights Xinjiang, where hundreds of thousands of people have been detained. Remember he called cheating Ping a thug during one of the last presidential debates. But many in trying to hope us under Biden will temper the relationship and cooperate on things like trade and climate change. But Biden could also have a much more multilateral approach and that could actually put pressure on China. And Jane. Lastly, I want to reach back into history. Joe Biden once suggested that Iraq would be better off his three separate autonomous regions Kurdish, Sunni and Shiite. How was that idea held up? Yeah, so he was suggesting autonomous regions, but still with the central government and here in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, they very much welcome that support for increase power to the regions, but in other places it was seen as fuelling Iraq's sectarian divide. And there's still a bit of concern about that idea. But a lot of it has moved on to concern about Iran. And on that one he's seen as not being quite a cz obsessed with isolating Iran. So even some militia leaders here have welcomed his election. Okay. NPR's Jane Arraf in Erbil, Iraq, Emily faIIing in Beijing and Lucien Kim in Moscow. Thanks, everyone.
World leaders congratulate Biden on projected win, but some await “official results”
"Joe Biden's presidency mean for us foreign policy with us, now three of NPR's international correspondents in some of the the regions regions that that are are most most consequential consequential to to the the United United States? States? NPR's NPR's Emily Emily Fang Fang is is in in Beijing. Beijing. Lucien Lucien Kim Kim is is in in Moscow Moscow and and Jane Jane Arraf Arraf is is in in Erbil, Erbil, Iraq. Iraq. Hello Hello to to you you all. Good morning. Morning. So, Emily, let's start with you. The relationship between the U. S and China right now is quite tense. How was news of of President Elect Biden's win received in Beijing. Well, there wasn't much news because two days after the election results were called noticeably Absent is any official reaction from China's leader? She Jingping, he's non put up a message. By contrast in 2016. She congratulated Trump hours after the race was called this year. The Foreign Ministry has dodged every question we've had for comment on their views about the election, and the silence is not because China prefers bite in over Trump, Trump of replied, And it's more out of an over abundance of caution because Trump has not officially conceded. Seven China's view It does not want to take a side if you will, and until someone is definitively inaugurated, and Trump still has more than two months left in office so he could put significant pressure on China. Still, if he's provoked Okay, So China's taking a wait and see approach Lucy and there was all of this concern about Russian potential Russian interference in this election. We didn't see much of that. How is Moscow, reacting to the prospect of a Biden presidency? We'll enter. It's interesting. It's very similar to the situation in Beijing here. The absence of any congratulations from President Vladimir Putin has been noticeable today. His spokesman told reporters that Putin will wait for official results because Trump has not conceded and wants to dispute the account in the courts. One prominent Russian who did congratulate Biden, his opposition leader, Alexei Navalny. He's recovering from a poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. The day after the U. S election. Navalny went on social media to say that the suspense about who Would eventually when the race was evidence that America's elections are riel, but officially on state TV. The main message is that this election was marred by irregularities and fraud. So in a sense, not that different from Russian elections and the messier the transition of power is in the US, the better it is for the Kremlin because the US stops looking like a model democracy. Well, that's interesting. Jane, China and Russia both taking a wait and see approach did Iraqi leadership say anything this weekend? They did. They generally welcomed Biden's election. And, you know, there's not expected to be really a dramatic or immediate change in policy. One of the big issues here is withdrawal of US troops and Biden like Trump is in favor of those, But I gotta be honest Officials here are breathing a sigh of relief. You know, one of them put it. Will no longer be one tweet away from learning of major foreign policy decisions. And then there's the fact that Biden you Noah's head of a CZ, a member of the leading member, ranking member of the Of Senate Foreign Relations Committee and then the point man on Iraq.

Mnuchin casts doubt on pre-election stimulus
"Let's get a look at the stimulus story in detail that doesn't mention their chances for a pre election agreement on fiscal relief appear to be in jeopardy now. Earlier, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin pointed to political dynamics that would undermine the month long negotiations with Democrats. I'd say at this point getting something done before the election and executing on that would be difficult just given where we are in the level of details, but we're going to try to continue to work through these issues. Lucien was asked whether Democrats air holding back out of optimism on controlling the Senate after the election. This would allow them to speed through their own bill, which is higher than what's being discussed with the administration. Lucien said. Well, it's definitely part of the reality from the other side today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and said that Democratic priorities would be cut in any deal based on the current White House offer.

Red teamers arrested conducting a penetration test
"So I know you've been on the promotional tour, you've you've recounted the million times but if you don't mind, could you walk us through the event yourself? If you don't mind, you can reconstruct the work you were doing at the courthouse moment you trip the alarm to the authorities and the response when they arrived. To Take Gee. I suppose. So see. If. We're just going over that portion of it. We we actually arrived at. Eleven thirty ish if I if I recall correctly. Kinda to walk lock around the building when I say walk around typically when you go to building and you haven't been there before you walk around and you check out our walk around was we parked in the back and walk to the front. When. We got there the the sheriff's department actually right across the street from the courthouse. So it wasn't like wasn't surprised that we knew that the the police were close by Yeah. We walked up and Justin was trying the door at the same time I was trying a badge that we had taken from another building just to see if they had multi- building access inside I was beep than Justin Open. MIC there. was. No is just open I was like Oh. Okay. Just just just shut the door. Then we proceeded to bypass the bypass the door just to just to give them the bit of another doubt. In this. Scenario this engagement. Overall, there was overlying theme which was real easy access to everything. And so this was another one of those times where you just kind shook our heads said, okay. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt. Let's what would happen if there wasn't a mistake or what would happen if somebody did leave the door wide open somewhere else. which again was a recurring theme. So we shut the door and then and then just went from there. Was it just that the door had like not closed all the way or something like that. Yeah. That was that was old more right old oral, real super super old courthouse right They still have they literally still have the. The the original latch on the doors from. Hundred years ago probably. Of course, they've up. There's my dog. Thank you. They've they've upgraded thing on the show today. They've upgraded things In. Putting a crash bar in the back of the door itself but the the actual old school locking mechanism of the door is is still there. And I think that's actually what what interfered was the old locking mechanism of the of the old door handle that was there and then to latch wasn't able to. Branch if I remember right I wrong but so you heard the alarm going off and you're like, okay, we're just GONNA wait until they get here and we're going to explain ourselves and then they they arrived in they didn't want to hear an explanation. Kind of actually there's there's a little bit more to it than that. We as soon as we went to the door, there's alarm panel around the side in part of what we do is to make sure that people aren't using default codes. Because a lot of people set up their alarm and they never changed certain. Or something, and it's always the same depending on on what what what company are using, what companies installed. Okay arpels. So that's the first thing we did was try make sure they're not using default codes. Usually have twenty to thirty seconds depending on the alarm system to to punch in said Code After we did that after we went through the the codes that I could remember. We actually suffer arms ourselves. I just kept hitting the same number over and over and over again to see if it had a lockout on it and probably the third code I tried to. Go I tried orange and say the third entry of the bunk code I knew it wasn't going to work actually sent it off. So did Iguana, about ten seconds early. So as soon as the alarm actually went off in earnest. And started blaring. I turn to Justin. Justin was actually there for. kind of I don't want say Training Regiment because the guy is brilliant but it was like the next step in the Lucien is he was he was supposed to take over the physical aspect of of testing coal fire, and so part of the winning the lead of that is to teach others, and so that is basically what it was for is is that was supposed to be Justin's Justin's. Way You WANNA say certification in iterating or. Whatever whatever you WANNA call it where I came gave him the ominous dominance. You're good to go and you can go train train everybody and take over the physical world. This is what it was. So yeah, I was making him making him. I was letting him make all the calls right and so what do you WanNa? Do you WanNa? You WanNA bounce or do you want to stay here and against onto the training is to see which which he would do but I, you know I helped. Trained because I definitely didn't do that but I helped train justin on a lot of things I know he makes the right decisions because I helped to make a lot of those. So. But again, once again, his decision making was impeccable. And he's like we're not doing anything wrong GONNA get out of jail free card. We're here under the owner of the customer solace. Let's just right in see if. Law enforcement shows up. That's what we did I mean and to be honest, it's the right call. There's a lot of a lot of people in the industry that would've left. Ryan and there's a lot of people in coal fire that would have left and that's the wrong choice never get your. Your sort of saying you're you're you're telling a different story than you mean to be telling imagine. Because Perpetrators running yeah. There's yeah there's this and we've actually given. We've actually given talks on this is there's a lot of people out there who have this this pride welled up of never being caught. And it's it's if you've never really ever getting caught, you're never really pushing the boundaries of your writing testing every aspect of the customer that you should be testing. You're you're letting your pride get in the way of well, I've never been God never been. Like you're not testing right if you've ever been caught. Identified that threshold I will. There's one thing that went into that decision making process to you. This was kind of midway or almost towards the end of week on. Working on and every other facility we were in no alarms were set off no response. So this was kind of first time we're hanging around with like all right. We need to see if law enforcement shows out actually response to this situation and he Yeah. That's. That's something for the report. Right there is. If you know if an alarm goes off in, they're like, oh, now it's probably fine. Happen before. Yeah. Light. Same proximity to the police station, they're not wired up the dial out.
Pelosi and Mnuchin take a last-ditch shot at a coronavirus stimulus deal

That's a fair deal and something that can help the American public Right now the neutron on Lou Dobbs tonight on the Fox Business network, and there are signs that the two sides could be closing in on a deal. Olive Branch of sorts, was held out by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Last night, she delayed a vote on the Democrats to $20.2 trillion virus relief measure. Pelosi postponed the vote until today after a 90 minute meeting with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Capitol Hill. The first face to face meeting between the two and over a month didn't produce any breakthrough, but both sides emerged sounding like there was room for negotiation. In a statement, Pelosi said. We found areas where we are seeking further clarification, Lucien said. We made a lot of progress over the last few days might grow.

He's a big big part of the team. Now part of the Doctor Terry Fisher brand team and election candidates for cells in everything that's going on and Lucien wants to as he said create a flash briefing and this is going to be an opportunity for the audience to listen in and hear about what goes into creating a good fuss briefing in the process in what you need to consider.

Do you have much of a presence on the voice devices because it's interesting to note people where you're starting from a complete scratch. Man I have no podcasts. Have NO FLASH BRIEFING GROUND ZERO RIGHT NOW all right? But you're on tick tock and I have to say that when we're in Chattanooga crazy you happen to run into a fan that new. Your doc is not true man so so huge style that actually super crazy it is amazing that you guys see that But Yeah Tick Tock. Video is my more my presence. Youtube is grim. And Tick Tock but man. I'm saying like audio being the next thing asked where I wanna be okay. Perfect and being a piano teacher. I mean it makes a lot of sense okay. So here's the so. We got the premise. You WanNA create a flash briefing. You WanNa get on voice so just share a little bit of your thoughts now like what? What do you want this flash briefing to do? What's the purpose of a vast region definitely so Every day I I WANNA be able to give advice to people trying to learn piano and so whether it's a tip that helps that helps you learn how to practice better our sight reading your training. It's something that will help you become a better musician. A tip that allows out of practice. I'll give you an exerciser play. Not In the name exercises everyday. Great Great and Annette's sounds perfect little short little bit little tip and somebody can can go ahead and so one of the things that I always talk about. When I'm thinking about you know creating briefings to help people help helping other people to create by sweeping is what problem are you solving and I that may be self explanatory for this but it sounds like the idea here is. You're trying to help a person who's wants to learn how to play the piano. Be More efficient with that is that is that sort of a fair statement hundred percent on all right and does it matter if they're like a beginner or more advanced person or have you thought about like who would who's going to be geared towards us right so this one is going to be geared toward toward the beginners the people who are jumping onto. Actually this APP called simply piano so many kids are so many new adults jumping into piano are learning from APPS and so i. I don't doubt that they would be the ones to be jumping on board with a voice device take advice and to learn more about Danone and transition from just an APP. Just a game that they play into an actual skill that they have so. That's right where I see appropriate That's awesome and obviously one of the things is you know if they're going to be listening to your first briefing. They wanted. They wanted to be listening to something. That's got some expertise and we didn't say this you have. You do have a lot of expertise. You have the credentials so maybe just share that with us. Like what makes you a guy that can teach piano appreciate that? Yeah man it's So my background. I've been playing piano since I was four. Twenty four years old right now. Seven plan for twenty years.

"Division Shen. Maybe it won't be just a truce the Olympic truth or maybe it's going to be more than maybe it's going to be the start of resilience process basis because I think that sports that the nation and and I think that when you support your nation to a team who cares if you were ordeal over its boggs the nation and I think that this is something that could be a great hope for this nation here in London because it's coming up in Rome tennis next summer so maybe it could be the moment ready to try to bring people together. You are an optimist only only by by my sense that well. I you know what you something wrong happens and it had to happen. You didn't suffer and when it happens. It's the same problem if you're a pessimist you a lot of that never happened and when the exactly the same so I prefer the first option insurers happier happier that way of course let's. Let's let's look at then you people know from this in the audience of this podcast. No you as the guy who was in charge of our sport entertainment for a long time and you were comparison. You came to London. what what was your sort of recall of that period in your your career. What did you learn about the difference between gene agency life or market sports marketing in London compared to Paris. I came to them because I realized that the markets was driven by this place when I say the market the international market because I started my life. This has asked by setting them the agency. I created years before lifetime. Rushing marketing group created this as part of sections shoot and then I I am took it over from such and such and then is only to have that twice in the beginning of the two thousand and I realize lies in two thousand and five actually in Singapore that was good to be a great agency having been able to raise two million to help pirates twenty twelve to put together a great bit and we did amazing things and everything was great but the story was that this story was to compete against international cities like New York and London and to win over those in an international competition and that was not done by the Frenchman and realizing syncopal apple that was a global network of people that were had been in supporting London has been activated very clearly by the London and that was the case of so. That's where that's where I was kind of a as you can say that if you want you pick here okay and then I started to realize that we needed a network so that's where I started athen too often agencies around the world. Can I just pause you say when you say the London bid had this network. What do you mean you mean so I mean the British philosophy of exporting your throughout the world where people speaking leash is a great strengths because you have a network of supporter in the UK from the UK to the US to Australia Singapore Hong Kong and all the rest of that's also a lot of English speaking people that are connected to the other English speaking people run the world and that's an health when it comes to convincing every icy he members everywhere whereas US kept thinking that we're a global relations where nobody's speak French out everywhere we are French became very proud of but it's so and I realized that was great agency with the other sports. Position didn't the trump international claims but from us so that's when we realized that what you've done having those people will run the one with something that we were missing missing in this business if you wanted to be filled solid and if we wanted to have a new way to win after we have debriefed on that disappointment of Singapore anyway so I built this network because I was thinking that and then we came to quite significant size agency's natural tonight Mexico Brazil and South Africa Australia in China in opponent Germany Italy Spain and the rest any in the UK where we realized that as the market sumo mature than forms to answer one part of the reason was necessary to started anything but to acqui- ah very skilled and reputed provisionals that's what we did with Sponsorship Media Agency of TCP and Marcus right and cake and March to into arrest but even having done that we realized that we were constantly as a a great French network French agency with an international network and you were not considered by global brands as global global network because we were not headquartered in so I decided to move the headquarters from Paris to London and just took this decision during the London Games when I spent in six weeks in London and the time to make it happen it happened to him just six months later and then I moved to London part of my staff might my international stuff and with family and yes then I was part of your community that could be the place where Global Brin came came to find their way to and that's exactly the difference between what we got in funds which was quite state of the art industry but really looking at the domestic market very out in the UK. Even if you are a big market you always have a global view of the opportunities and Renault that so they come and fetched agency in this place so that was a few years back and I think that when I arrived from Paris Greece even if I was commuting like every week without local team then I brought the energy of the network from Paris to London so we kit some kind of control accents I should say but we borrowed a lot of your very efficient way of working and a very creative approach to marketing which I really appreciate analytical skills existing this so when you look at that across the Lonzo stepping outside the Hamas experience and you look across the London agency who stood out who was doing well at that point sort of and Redo. Did you Amalia so actually when I was this a beat that has been a call by Bartlett. Yes for the event they had at the time is six seven agencies that wanted to merge everything the one single agency and so the open the competition to democratizing maupassant there was twenty agencies running for that bid and so we had to compete against everybody so yes and as you can imagine the finalist read the fuse sportsman's image was the octagon yeah I think there was also of course and see such an said she sports an intimate yet very great agency at the time and and pitch was yes. There was those agencies some some of the new ones I've seen recently coming up but it was really really a very strong group. What did you what did you learn about about the role of sports and entertainment agency and sponsorship within the broader advertising and media networks that you know and have us? I think he's the six largest possibly of those global networks but they will to varying degrees. You've mentioned views and you know in terms of being only calm within that network. What's one of the challenges because it's it's there's issues of incentives but there's also issues of of just the domino expertise expertise. I guess there's some there's a whole there's always been an issue. Isn't there about trying to make sport and entertainment agencies work within broader. God Yes that I've been different phases vets. I think that today everybody except the idea that this is a different culture sure this different expertise you need to be connected with the stakeholders of that world and as an agency. You need to provide to clients some connections with these. If you want to make your strategy the jeep applicable so you need to really not just think about great creative ideas but you need to make these creative ideas to implement them in the right talk be authentic vis-a-vis communities fan the as themselves the federation and so forth and that needs a special culture special expertise got you so within whole. Communications Group people would recognize that there is a sports parts or sponsorship group of people they would be the people who know what to do understand the fan culture can activate those levers to really make it so I think the problem expertise expected is is soaking and also the way people understand.

We haven't come across on. Oh, that's that's classic. Let's talk a little bit about the culture talking here with Lucien Greaves of the Tannock temple. There is a little bit of a rift. You addressed it in a general way near the beginning of our conversation as you see Jax who was sort of running the Detroit chapter and she held, and I think she continues to hold the idea that you can't work within a broken system to initiate positive change or to further positive change. And I think she just kind of has a a hope I'm not unfairly representing, but I just caught a burn it all down kind of vibe, whereas the panic temple as a whole is really more about working within the letter of the law within the system to try to establish and reinforce church-state separation or at least remind people church-state separation and enjoy individual private, religious expression. Yeah. And you're not radically paraphrasing. Anything she uses that terminology. On our side. You know, our attorney uses the terminology used to represent our position as well. Okay..

"Fred topel at we live entertainment said they're admitted trolling of evangelical Christians became an important protests to protect freedom of religion and separation of church and state. Now, they're doing the Lord's work as it were still with the showmanship of brilliant satirists and indie wire has this blurb from David Erlich, it says provocative hilarious and latently enraging documentary about the Tanic temple. Of course, we talked about the Tannen temple before. And I are profiled Lucien Greaves before they are a non theistic religion. They don't believe in a literal heaven or hell or God or Satan, Satan is an icon which represents rebellion against tyranny. And they use religious symbolism without believing in the supernatural Lucien Greaves is co-founder of the Tanic temple is featured heavily in the documentary film. And he joins me for today's show. Lucien good to have you back man scraped to be back before we talk about the movie. Can we talk about the Tanic temple? I mean, do you guys attract a certain personality type? Or kind of a common background. I mean, do you see commonalities in people who are attracted to the tactic temple? There's commonalities and people who are tracked of the satanism in general, even different brands of Satan as people are attracted to Afia stick sex, which are much smaller much less prevalent than not the aesthetic satanic practice, but just the kind of rejection of arbitrary authority is the kind of main underlying common denominator for people who identify with satanism is in that that does lead to different certain character type since kind of psychological co morbidity that you might not anticipate in some some of those. I'm not even sure where they come from. But I think from my experience being where I am here. I see there's a there's there's a lot of animal lovers amongst us. And that really seems to be a common common thread. No, that's on her body know, we heard you guys, you know, cutting off their heads and drinking the blood rate. Exactly. But I think think on common thing, you'll see a lot of lot of Satan is's that they're not they're not necessarily used to organizing groups can be very impassioned about social issues, but not necessarily the most amenable to team playing, you know. So it can be can be difficult trying to get everybody. Together, we see that in many eighth east circles, you know, they're like at you ain't gonna hurt this cat. I left one flock. I'm not gonna join another. You know, I'm an independent spirit. Right. Right. And there's a lot to be said for that too. But it was also a lot to be said for the idea that if we don't hang together, we'll hang separately. Especially now, we're talking about this documentary that was produced by magnolia pictures. And it's a big fish. And it's called hail Satan. It just released is it sort of. Playing in theaters around the country, or is it valuable now on like, I tunes Amazon.
