Even the intelligence community understand that various countries are driven by the strategic culture. Some western experts. Believe that everybody is the same. And that is just simply not true as you know leads to bad intelligence exactly. And that's why. We are in the situation. Not only with regard to russia but with regard to garner stan iraq and places like that all over the world because the so-called experts did not factor in the mindset and the strategic culture of the adversaries and opponents. That they deal with this i. I've seen it myself.

He was kid of marketing in percenter at a radio station byron three during the new economy. He hid they determine department at lycos europe. Hello renee welcome. I also my pleasure for this. Podcast is great talking with you. Thank you hope. You're having a great start of the new year and twenty one fed. Who like to hear more about. Would you particularly how you doing media in order very interesting things about technology. Your life ended in this world of the identity. If i knew that myself. I think it's quite unlikely scenario that panned out spent. Maybe you also heard that famous. Commencement speech from steve jobs. In haver that you only can connect the dots in hindsight. You can't connect them living your life. Forward and limited tried to connect these dots and you mentioned a couple of things how they volved in my life. Indeed in my first life as i tend to say i was sitting on the other side of our conversation i was a radio. Presenter was a journalist by tim my highlight. There was a war correspondent for german public radio in macedonia during the kosovo. Nine hundred ninety nine. I did this kind of on the side of my university education for economic management and then post graduation. I was more focusing on the media management side of things. And as you're right they said. I was head of marketing of anti by on three one of the top ten german radio stations. After that's the new economy came. If you might recall that time the boom and the bust very was Director entertainment at that time famous and infamous search engine with a variety of other services lycos europe and really saw a lot of this bust of this new economy which maybe take a year off in two thousand two and spent a year traveling the world in a sabbatical during all sorts of things. I always wanted to do from doing a pilot's license motorbike licence mode license. Learning languages like russian spanish during my tie and then i came back to munich and well. This was my first immigration then. Going to bangalore india. And that's very in fact i thought it. By entrepreneurial journey in businesses like e commerce selling jewelry on ebay then moving into an outsourcing consultancy for bangolo has been very instill is very famous for and then starting in detroit angel invest in into indian companies with these angel andrew a cold mumbai angels so an imperative is lots of back and falls into you mentioned that also. I helped build an echo beta in munich. Owned by a hot spring publisher called spring except where we created some thirteen companies in the span of four years. Then i really truly moved back to munich for a short period of time. Very co founded a social media agency and that crowd funding platform venture ag which we then sold a year later to a publicly listed company. Then came i second immigration. This time with my family to bangkok and then kind of opportunity presented itself better typical soon network connections to join the data flow group at that time it was headquartered in hong kong meanwhile headquartered in dubai and data flow is doing esp primary source verification. Since two thousand six. And i was given a quite broad mandate look at. How can this be more digitized. And let's face it. I'd say verification is not the most sexy topic on the face of this earth but maybe it's also reason why nobody has looked at that. So i tried to exactly that so i kind of became a co founder of true profile. I oh really put the individual and implement into the center so we launched the first version of something called data flow plus dot org some four years ago and that subsequently into a troop profile. I o which. I'm now running in a shared responsibility with my esteemed koha alejandro coca from spain. Who is focusing on the commercial business part while i focus on the product and tech parts so in hindsight maybe it is possible to the dotes. I'd say my personal motivation here in the common thread has been never stop being curious. Never stop learning and never stop willing to make a move into a new uncharted territory. I can see. I can see many changes in geography and also in the business. If i may just add. I think it's really interesting. Because listen to some eighty percent of your podcast. I learned a hell of a lot. And i think what you're doing. You're doing a great service of building. This industry of digital identity from identity for people identity for technical system like api is than also what our policies locations or. What is the identity of a legal entity. So i found this area's always very separate and you're kind of bringing them under one umbrella where they belong. And i hope that maybe today. I can contribute.

Amazon Deforestation Reaches 12-Year High

"In the Brazilian Amazon has exploded under president Gyre Belson ARO. New data from the country's Space agency shows the rate of deforestation is at a 12 year high. The rain forest is home to approximately one million indigenous people. So what's the impact on on them? them? Gustavo Gustavo Fella Fella does does is is the the founder founder of of Info Info Amazonia, Amazonia, a a data data based based journalism journalism initiative. initiative. He He says says illegal illegal logging, logging, land land grabs grabs for for farming farming and and even even gold gold mining mining has been encouraged by the Bulls in our government. It's threatening indigenous people. So you have a lot of land grabbing and invasions and territories, Indigenous territories by this illegal miners, while the discourse and in both arms of course it's him. I called this is our cat miners. You know these people need to survive and just find some gold in the river is not like that. It's real mining going on were like huge, expensive machines. We've done that need for Macedonia large investigations showing that this is a big business connected to Amster done or Miami and as the pandemic evolves, and gold gets the highest price ever. There's no way of getting out of this because people won't Stop buying gold. The pressure is coming directly to the Amazon and fueling this illegal activities asked me to Boston, hers doing something no, not at all. Both. An arrow has had an ally in President Trump in terms of supporting industry over the environment, But there has been a shift. Incoming President Joe Biden has threatened economic consequences if deforestation continues. Do you think more international pressure could impact both scenarios environmental approach one way It's clear that economic pressure trade barriers my change, but at the same time you see the recent to Abidin mention, kind of energized the base of both of my arms and like that's what they want. They want to our hands on, so he creates a kind of political environment that is prone for the kind of nationalistic discourse as well. Let me ask you this. If pressure from the United States government isn't going to do the trick, then I'm wondering how concerned you are about what is happening in the Amazon and and what you see in the short term as the future there. Look, My main concern is that while this is happening, you know like this back and forth and pressure, international pressure damaged ones get more and more illegal. We know about drug trafficking. Of the FARC in Colombia has operated for years in the Amazon and now the Ambien guerilla group. Exactly so now that they're all mostly done in Colombia, all this trade routes of cocaine have moved to Brazil. The brew and the south part of Venezuela, and the war is fierce there. I don't know if you have looked at some point the home side rates of the Amazon cities right now, they just like the highest in Brazil, because all the you know like a criminal activity off the big centers of the South had moved there because they're trying to control that. And this money is linked to a lot of other illegal activities, including the four station because it's a big way of mounting your money and getting land and it's moving into illegal mining, legal mining off gold. It's huge. Now it's the highest level ever in the Amazon, all the Amazon countries, especially in south part of Venezuela. Which is controlled by the same Gabriel is that left London And so we have a regional security issue that is really building up. Most powerful A Rose is in Sao Paolo.

"Because we like to do that we do so carries parents were Nancy and denny. And they fell in love with Nancy's just nineteen years old and then he was twenty one. They got married in nineteen seventy then in nineteen, seventy, two, their son Adam was born. Followed by Carey in nineteen seventy four. Nancy chose Adams name. So then he was to choose Carrie's name. Nancy wanted to name their daughter Kelly. Yes but after Kerry, well, yeah I guess Danny had seen this young girl singer on the Johnny Carson show I think it was really liked her thought she was talented and like the name Kerry. But then he changed the spelling to see a R. I Which I guess. Kind of. Plagued Carey in her youth because everyone was always misspelling her name. You gotta be careful with that. Right you do and this is before there were so many made up spellings like there are now me now you know that they're going to have special spellings of the kids names a lot of the time whatever whatever name you pick. Yeah exactly. The double E. The L. G. H. You know. All different variations, but anyway, Kerry had a hard time with people. Either mispronouncing or misspelling her name because of that. These were young kids when they got married they didn't have a lot of money at least early on. Danny work two jobs. And then finally he got a good paying position as an insurance actuary. This folks actually make pretty good money. Nancy was a skilled secretary. She is always organized and efficient. But like a lot of young marriages, it didn't last. So and Adam was four and can carry with eighteen months. Old Appearance got divorced. Adam maintain a close relationship with his father. Kerry was young when the divorce happened.

They used to go out on double dates go to concerts dances the whole nine yards. Yard then she met Denny and dump them right or are they broken up before I know of it was that simple? I mean, they attended different colleges. So mark was an art major in Missouri and Nancy went to business school in des, Moines Iowa, and that's where she met Denny.

Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track

"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

You are in the Slovenian capital. What is happening there? While we're opening up a bet here, marcus in fact, as Britain is going in the direction of putting arrivals and quarantine fourteen days, which is caused a great deal of Cathal over there. I'm here in Slovenia it's exactly the opposite. The country's just opened up. To arrivals from fourteen other European countries, and that's ranging from Switzerland to Iceland and Germany the Baltics, and that's in addition to its neighbours, Croatia Hungary and Austria. Restrictions on rivals from those places had already been lifted Italy those going to have to wait for a little while, but probably for about a week longer, and it's very bad news coming from north Macedonia Marcus, it's a compulsory fourteen day quarantine arriving from that, and that's because of a recent increase in a number of covid nineteen cases. Luckily I'm not coming from us. Part of the world's continuing to the neighboring country Croatia. What's making headlines over there now? We'd like railway journey Sony Marcus on Monocle, twenty, four and I. This is warm, which sounds to me? Like a railway journey that that I'd like to make, and it's one from the Czech Republic through to the Croatian coast, and this is being run by the Czech railway operator regular I think you pronounce it regular jet. Should we go with that? And they are running trains that I think we'll go with that the plan anyway as whatever they could they. However you pronounce that they're going to be running night. Trains from the Czech Republic from Prague directly through to the Croatian coast to be precise, the city of the reactor, which is actually one of the European capitals of culture this year, and from they'll be able to get connections to any of your coastal destinations, and this is a big deal. It's a big. Big Deal for people in the Czech Republic because eight hundred thousand of them every year. Go on holiday in Croatia apparently, the the advertising in in the Czech. Republic refers to Croatia as aw coast so quite proprietorial about it. They are number seven in terms of tourist arrivals in Croatia, so it's not an exaggeration, really but it's also a big deal for Croatia. Because twenty percent of their GDP is generated by tourism I'm said they're going to have to. Find ways of getting people from places like the Czech Republic that key tourism markets. If that is salvage any kind of a summer season at all, and this is exactly the when people are talking about corona corridors between countries which have low infection rates of which. Croatia and the Czech Republic A to well I think that A. Colorado, because let's face it this. This trains conjugate three tunnels Marcus that raw appeals to me I in terms of both an elegant solution and the word play, and the fact that it'll. Be a very beautiful train journey.

Croatia's ruling conservatives to analyze loss of presidency

"And Croatia's former Prime Minister Zoran on Novic won his country's presidential elections this weekend. The center-left candidate beat the defending center-right incumbent Kalinda grubber Qatar in a second-round round runoff. Mr Milinovic takes the reins just as Croatia takes on the rotating presidency of the European Union at the time of huge change within the EU. So so how will he manageable. This Guy Delone ISM is multiples Balkans correspondent and I'm delighted to say. He joins me on the line now. A guy a very warm welcome. Tell us about this new the president that Croatia has yeah. He's not exactly a newcomer to Croatian politics. He's not a fresh face by any means. He was actually Prime Minister for five years between twenty one ten and two thousand fifteen when he was at that point the leader of the Social Democrat Party And he was emptied out in two thousand fifteen hundred along with his government. Ostensibly I think because he the Presided over the bulk of never ending recession and it lasted for six years this recession. Although he was at pains to point out during the presidential debate that during during his last quarter in power as prime minister of Croatia had started to grow again economically speaking. You know you described him. As centre-left you describe. Kalinda Gra Qatada which is as a centre right. These things are all relative in Croatian politics. you you have both sides appealing at these nationalist tendencies save which have still existed even despite the fact that Croatia achieved its independence during the homeland war of the Nineteen Ninety S. They still think it's A. It's a winner to to drum up nationalist rhetoric. And we certainly saw Mr Milosevic and also script Qatada Mitch doing that during the campaign. Indeed I mean many people were quite surprised the fact that Kalinda grab architectural which has lost the election given the fact that she was extremely popular in so many ways. And also talking about the populist and nationalist point of view many remember her the World Cup final in two thousand eighteen when she was closing cozying up Vladimir Putin. And that's quite a statement to make who can forget those scenes When Kalinda quarterback Catava gloriously decked out in the checkable Jersey of of of Croatia during the World Cup final? As I recall she didn't have an umbrella but some I'm funky was holding an umbrella over over Putin's had but she looks absolutely delighted with the fact Croatia we're in the final and creations enjoyed the fact that not only their country's footballers footballer's but also their country's head of state regaining such an international profile. And you saw many profiles of Qatada in the international press after after that she certainly gained international attention and that was a big boost to her personal popularity For a long while and for much of last year you would have said that she'd be a shoo-in career election because you've really got to do something hitting quite unfortunate in order to lose the presidency and Croatia because it isn't a role the tolls a lot of executive power by any means means it's really a figurehead slash ceremonial role. But she made some missteps. And I think the key one among them was she made some sort of alliance with the mayor of Zagreb Millan Bandage Pitch. Who is currently on trial for corruption? Not the first time that's happened to him and needs to be said. And if there's one thing that voters in Croatia a sensitive about it's the idea idea of politicians troughing it at their expense and that seems to be in the biggest misstep which hit her popularity that she was in second place in in the first round of this. The presidential election to Mr Milosevic many people thought hoover up the right wing votes in in the second round. But it seems that wasn't the case against Milosevic assuming the presidency and a k next month I think as you said the largely ceremonial role but he does have influence when it comes to foreign policy and defense and security plus last Wednesday. Croatia took up the reins in terms of being the The EU presidency. It's assumed the six-month rotating position and has described itself. Is it being a historic event CRATIA and the most difficult test of its maturity since independence. That's an enormous job. I think that's actually Ahah comment because the issue we've seen had highlighted during the presidential campaign is the two candidates still hawking back to the nineteen ninety s and there was a think tank here in Slovenia which was looking at the issue and it said that the the both candidates were trying to prove which was the biggest Croat. And that's that's rather problematic when you think this is now almost thirty years on from the country's independence it's twenty five years on from the end of the homeland wars. They call it in Croatia unless still trying to prove who's more Croat than the other. The country needs to move beyond that and taking on the presidency of the European Union. Even if it's only for six months is a chance to show that it can be bigger than that and it does have an excellent opportunity to show that it can put all of these ethnic and regional squabbles. Behind it because of course the question of the expansion of the European Union into the Western Balkans is a really big live issue. Both Serbia and Montenegro are in membership negotiations. Albania north Macedonia would dearly like to be and would be were it not for manual macron. Vetoing them a couple of months ago so Croatia really doesn't have an opportunity here to stand up and say it'll be better for all of us in this region and in Europe as a whole if we he gets on the right track with these negotiations. This is the K. Isn't it guy the fact that when you do assume the EU presidency. You almost have to put your national interest to one side and thinking linkin terms of the greater good of the block. How capable do you think Croatia will be in trying this this task given the fact that it's issues of populism listen? Nationalism Migration border control a such a sticky issue for them. I don't want to make Zora Milosevic out to be an angel. He isn't he's he said. A nasty things about Serbia. Bosnia and Croatia has been locked in a border dispute with Slovenia a decades now However the fact that people wanted to vote for him him who is as we settle sensibly centre-left rather than Kalinda robot Qatada? He was supported by a right-wing Nationalist Party the party which founded Croatia the HD Zad that may be indicates that the voters think that they need to do something else. Now that this would be optimistic slammed on this it has to be said but perhaps people are thinking well. It is now time to move beyond that. The the arguments the politics and the ethnic arguments of the nineteen ninety s and try something different so so she would be optimistic in the New Year to think of Croatia moving in that direction. Why not thank you very much? Indeed guide

Obvious solutions for every child to be taught at least one African language at school. But somehow that hasn't happened yet. It is expensive logistical challenge for a young country, but there are some encouraging signs. I've come to a private, language course, that's university. My name is guy. So Kamado, I am one of the teachers at its limits. Generally, we come from a culture of not being used to their white South Africans wanting to learn especially from blacks. So the first impression is that. For the first time, I'm able to share something that I know that why people feel like they talked. So it's amazing. It's very good to see Andrew Harding in South Africa will look ahead to those elections in more detail later in the program. Staying with elections. The second round of presidential elections in the country known known as north Macedonia. Take place today pitch hysteria. Pendarovski and academic, representing the social Democrats against the more nationalist candidate Gordana Cillian. Oscar Cova correspondent guide is watching events from there. Tell us a bit more about these two guys. They ran very close today in the first round of this election. I don't think you could have had them run much closer rarely about forty two percent three of them in the first round of the election. So of course, neither of them passed the fifty percent threshold which would need to be needed to avoid the second round the differences between them all that sterile. Pendarovski is backed by the governing party, the social Democrats who were the party who arranged the change of name from the Republic of Macedonia to the Republic of north Macedonia and his pitches very much being let's keep moving the country forward. The name change will allow us to join NATO and doper negotiations. Membership at the European Union. Whereas Gordon Scott Cova on the other hand, she's an academic and she supported by the way, which is a rightwing nationalist party, which was in government from twenty six to twenty sixteen. They've opposed the name agreement and has slogan on which has been running as been very much all about. Opposition to the name agreement and the slogan slightly alarming Justice for Macedonia the fatherland calls as you hint. That name changes been very much at the center of things we'll show because it's it's been it's been at the center of massive north Macedonia's issues ever since declared independence from Yugoslavia in nineteen ninety one. So for almost three decades, the fact that it was called Macedonia caused a dispute with its larger neighbor to the south Greece because Greece has its own region called Macedonia, and the fact that green up agree subjected to its very name meant that the then Republic of Macedonia was unable to join NATO has been invited to do. So would have been more or less Riverstone through Greece. Vetoed that European Union membership talks also similarly starring Mead and for small country, like then Republic of Macedonia. This was in. Normally problematic. It's one of the poorest countries in Europe. It's the cheapest Skopje Orissa cheapest capital city in Europe. And there's a very good reason for that.

It's not particularly terrific. You're a young person living that and you want to future in your country. So changing the name to north Macedonia was away of unblocking all of that does.

"There's been a lot of concern for many years now about this issue of extra-judicial killings. And the reason why they would do this in many instances would be because the police would have been afraid the notoriously inefficient legal system in on. My set them free at some stage. There have also been accusations that police have done this in cases, where they're motivated by greed where they're trying to shake someone down for a bribe for a long time was this was an issue that people within the human rights community. We're very concerned about a lot of ordinary Pakistani seemed to accept it because there was such a level of violence in society, the ordinary people's priority really was to get a more peaceful country and in some quarters. This was seen as a kind of necessary evil now, I think as the number of terrorist attacks. That have been happening in Pakistan have decreased sharply. People are not so willing to overlook these kind of human rights abuses successor Kamani after twenty years. Matthew Nimetz is out of a job. And he must be delighted he's a UN mediator. And he spent all of that time trying to get Greece in its northern neighbour to agree on a name in nineteen ninety one. When Yugoslavia disintegrated after communist states in Europe collapsed, Greece found itself bordering, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, but a large part of northern Greece is also known as Macedonia and Athens objected to sharing the name this month, its northern neighbour amended its constitution to adopt. The name Republic of north Macedonia provided Greece agreed and on Friday, despite extensive protests involving thousands of people the Greek parliament narrowly did just that Maria. Margaret Ronan reports regularly from the region. This is a very very very old issue. And it. Goes back to when both Greece and the Republic of an oath Macedonia were part of the Ottoman empire and Bulgaria Greece and Serbia were fighting over the region of Macedonia, shall we call it both Bulgaria and Greece were trying to win over the Slavs speakers in the region to their own cause. And that is where the sense of a separate Macedonian identity emerged when the borders were finally drawn a population of Slavs speakers were left in Greek Macedonia northern Greece in the nineteen thirties under the Metaxas dictatorship. This population was quite violently suppressed, the language was forbidden. They were shut out of employment and then during the second World War, and the civil war that followed many Slav speakers of northern Greece fought on the communist side against the government, and some seventy thousand went into exile into what is now the Republican north Macedonia, and they have not been allowed to return in spite of the return of other civil war refugees. So it's a very painful old issue. And for modern Greeks that sense of their heroic history going back if you like to Alexander, the great and the assimilation of that Macedonian history to the modern Greek narrative is very important. And you have to also understand that Greeks have been through a deep humiliation. The last ten years with the austerity measures the crisis, the bailouts and so on. So there's a real sensitivity in Greece about this. It's not simply about a name. And the fact that the name happens to be used in both countries. No, it's a sensitivity about identity and history. And it's both the history that we don't know that we're not taught about what went on in those old forgotten warriors and a sense of wounded pride. But it's also, of course, become a very hot party political issue because the citizens Nell government would now it's just the government because they split over. This very issue has pushed this forward really with great courage, and it's. I think a great achievement after all this time to be able to make this deal and the opposition parties have been in this rather odd position of fighting very hard against it. But I think secretly rather hoping it would go through so that they can use it in the elections, which are due at some point this year, certainly by October and for prime minister Cipruss, yes who began his career on the national stage really is something of a disruptor in terms of European Union politics. He was an sense, the reaction to all those bailouts and all those compromises, and so on the we're talking about he's sort of been transformed over the intervening years hasn't in the sense. This achievement is all the more remarkable. When you think where he came from only left, prime minister could have done this. But in a sense. Yes. Supergrass who began as this little black sheep of Europe as the threat to the euro zone is all of those things has not only managed to get Greece out of the bailout agreement, but he has become in a sense, the sort of Representative of a sane reasons. Pro-western pro-european line because the EU is happy about this NATO is happy about this. Russia is unhappy about this. And this makes certainly, you know, the EU very happy Maria Margaritas. It's been Oscar's nominations. We can Hollywood which put a mind a feud a recent TV series which won awards of its own it documented the decade-long competition between two rival stars of the golden years of US cinema. Joan Crawford and Bette Davis in one of the episodes Crawford pulls out all the stops to ensure Davis doesn't win a third Oscar for best actress pride envy and RAF all rolled into one. It's the sin of envy, which Martin Bashir. The BBC's religion editor is hoping to avoid when he sits down next month in front of the TV to watch the awards as the handed out. The Oscar ceremony itself is only a small part of a six hour televised marathon, which begins with fabulously. Dressed stupendous Lee, beautiful actors and actresses getting out of limousines and walking along. What seems like an internal red carpet. It is the parade of the finest the March of perfection. It can also be the most depressing six hours of your life. As you slump on a sofa eating high calorific fast food and watch a display of high achievement. It's hard not to feel deeply envious. And yet there's another story about the ceremony that is largely untold for many actors winning the Academy Award is not the doorway to endless success, but the moment when their careers, take a dive. Halle Berry for example, won an Oscar for Monster's Ball sixteen years ago, but two years later, she was accorded worst actress status for her performances cat woman and since struggled to win critical acclaim offer the back consider f Murray Abraham who won an Oscar for his iconic performance as Mozart's bitter rivals salary in the one thousand nine hundred four epic Amadeus. One critic has described his post Oscar career as the equivalent of tumbleweed blowing across the desert road. So the red carpet on Oscar night. However perfect. It may seem can lead to nowhere very quickly. And winning an Oscar can also have a damaging effect on an actor's personal life. A joint study by the university of Michigan and the National University of Singapore found that success at the Oscars was often accompanied by marital problems, in fact, male actors with three times more likely to get divorced compared to other top actors once they picked up a gong. I guess the obvious lesson from all of this is that envy is regarded as one of the seven deadly sins for good reason because you never really know what's going on beneath the surface underneath the lights the poor the makeup. And while you may sit there watching the show thinking that you want to be one of the actors on parade. The medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas explains. That envy is the exact opposite of love because it's actually rooting for destruction envy. Rights acquaintance is contrary to charity for charity rejoices in our neighbor's good while envy. Only grieves over it. So this year, I won't be changing my routine, I'll be watching the Oscars slumped across the sofa, but I'll be trying extra hard not to envy the winners. Marcy share?

Now, where the parliament has voted to back on historic agreements with Musset Dona each brings an end to a beat the twin seven year dispute over it's no the neighbor's name bone editions approved the name Republic of north Macedonia by just seven votes despite widespread opposition from the Greek public and joining me full always motorcycles, Athens, correspondent Nathalie of erica's. Welcome to the program. So nastily what is the atmosphere like in Athens this evening, we saw a number of protests in the streets off the CD before this historic vote. I think most Greeks will be digesting the news. They've not been happy about it. The some poll suggests that up to sixty percent of Greeks are not happy about it. And we've Kaley seen it in the images of many of the protests, which some have even been marred by violence, many nationals descended on this treats to oppose this. But also more cool-headed critics, you know, who were kind of opposed at this deal because they were gonna feeling you know, that it wasn't appropriation of of their legacy. Another country will now call itself about, you know, partly will call itself after name of one of its provinces, and they're quite worried about it. It's kind of the only thing they felt they still could control, you know, their national identity, either culture their history and with this deal. It kind of felt that they were even relinquishing this. If you will. Why is it that the question of Macedonia? Name us Bruce up so much anger in Greece. Why at his why has it become such a heat to topic that has lost at full twin seven years this row? Well, you know, when I mean, it's obviously partied historical. I mean, one the small Balkan province are broke away from Yugoslavia back in nineteen Ninety-one it decided to call itself Macedonia now, coincidentally, it's infuriated its neighbour Greece because one of Greece's largest provinces is actually called Macedonia for millennia, an Athens worried that, you know, with this new country, it might, you know, start claiming it's territory and it history shortly after northern Macedonia's independence, the young Balkans countries, then nationalist leadership acted on on this very nationalist, pride it directed large Brown statutes of Alexander the great his father's well, Philip who are considered Greek. You know, very important historical figures beyond that the also printed schoolbooks with a map of great Macedonia. Let's kind of confirming Greece's worries aside of that, obviously as I mentioned earlier, you know, the the Greeks are feeling extremely proud of their heritage and their history, and their culture, and Macedonia and everything that it implies is sport of of who they feel they are over millennia and now with this smaller country to the north who they think is a Slavic country. You know, it has nothing to do with a history. They speak a Slavic language as well. They feel that kind of appropriating a part of who they are to the core. Exactly. It was quite hard to predict how the parliament would vote and politicians data breach. The name Republic of north Mazda Dona by just seven votes. So what is happening next?

"Obesity and that was professor set off for rookie of Cambridge University. You're listening to music. This is news live from the BBC in London. I'm James Menendez. Naps Seneca talk in that race. Well, that's the sound of members of the Greek parliament sharing after a majority voted to accept the new name for its northern neighbour. Macedonia will become the Republic of north Macedonia ending a dispute that goes back nearly three decades when it may sound trivial, but it is a dispute this prevented the country joining the European Union and NATO because of Greek moves over the years to block membership. Well, let's talk to the BBC's. Mark learn who's in Athens for us Mark how much opposition was there. One hundred forty six out of the three hundred MP's in parliament voted no, James one voted present. So the vote wasn't counted four against number on the streets of Greece. There has been significant opposition you from Syntagma square outside the Greek parliament, and I can see just a few hundred protesters now, but last night there were a few thousand here there were there were there was tear gas that was fired to disperse them. And last weekend there were tens of thousands who gathered here from right across Greece. Abacus Greeks are a nation that if the face the attached to district, and they believe that Macedonia is a quintessentially Greek name, it was the birthplace of Alexander. The great, and it is the name of the northern Greek province. So for twenty eight years Greece has been objecting to its northern neighbour using the name, Macedonia Republic of Macedonia. And as you say this blocked that countries EU and NATO accession finally disputes, which may seem rather obscure and sippy referring to to to countries in South East Europe and actually has taken a wider geopolitical significance because of Russia's involvement in the conflict and try to scupper resolution has finally been resolved. So what happens next is it all done and dusted. It will become Republican north massive in your, and that's it. Yeah. The country will officially tell the United Nations changing their name from the current the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia North Korea and NATO has already said that they look forward to swift accession for that for the country. And the reason why it has taken a renewed European Union. They have been worried that Russia has been meddling to try to stop Macedonia from joining NATO to try to keep the Balkans in the Russians fear of influence, and in return Russian politicians have have criticized the west for blackmailing and bribing Macedonian politicians in their word to join NATO. So so really after twenty eight years there was just intense pressure on Athens to compromise. And finally to bring an end to one of Europe's most intractable disputes, Marc many, thanks for joining us up was the BBC's Mark Lowen and apologies for the breakup during that interview. A few problems with that line to Athens. But let's talk now Georgio de vice president of the opposition party in Greece new democracy. Welcome to NewsHour. How are you feeling about the way the vote went first of all thank you for the invitation? I feel terrible as the majority of the great people today, you can see from London only what happened in the parliament that in all the polls that seventy percent of the Greek people is against of this deal. And you have to know that. And I hope I will be wrong. I'll be proved wrong. This would be a very bad day for our relationship with the so called not much Danica since the why in what way you see what you're saying before it was as if Greeks were the bad people that wanted to block firearm of entering to the NATO alliance or not see them be happy or anything else. Stop through rarely also. That's what's happened over the years. The only state in the region that doesn't have any claim against this country is Greece Bulgaria Serbia. They want to take a piece from the state only Greece want peace and stability in the region. But our main objection from day one, and they want is not when you pleaded they want as much before the second World War about the Macedonian issue from nineteenth century and from this date, it started when the communist leader, Tito, invented this nation. After second World War just because had the conflict with startling. Okay. I'll us bring bring it up to twenty nine hundred. I mean, the reality is is that. Just hold on a second. The reality is is that Macedonia has had to concede in a way and has had to change its name, which is a pretty big concession. Why isn't that enough for you? I will I will extend very easily to you. I was my father was born in Florida, this CD of Macedonia in Greece. And since my birthday, I know that I must have Donen I'm Greek Macedonian with this deal. I have except that I'm not must Donen anymore and Macedonians are the people of this is something I will never accept. This is something that will make me and the other people in their CDs of northern Reese of Macedonia real Macedonia that will feel very unhappy and trying to find a way of having good relationship with people that feeling very unhappy is a very bad very bad way to do it. If you yeah. If your party were to win a majority in in in future government, will you want pick this agreement will. Scrap it. Explained voters very clearly that for internet law. It's totally impossible to stop a deal that has been voted and has been an international deal because since the day, the state has taken some obligations and the state does not change just because there's a change of the government. But as our our President Mrs. Said yesterday to the parliament, we will use all the tools, we have and we will never let the Greek people feel with no dignity. You see since the day, the great people, and the vast majority and this something you don't see in London. They feel without dignity, and the majority is owned the parliament to our point of view. It was just a matter of personal deals of salmon piece that they were elected let's say for example with parties from new democracy want MRs Abubakar stat or from the Mesa communist party, MRs. During the elections where promising to their voters that they were never going to vote something like that. Yeah. Mr. tsipras offered them stereo chair. And they saw them change their mind. Okay. And that is the way that. It was just a matter of business of Mr. tsipras has nothing to do with people dignity, the prime minister, but that is the way parliamentary democracy works just briefly having lost the vote though in the future. Would you support north Macedonia becoming a member of NATO and the European Union? Since this deal is being voted. They will be a member of the NATO alliance because agrees with this agreement said that will not block it anymore. So. These days the firearm state will be a member of NATO after some weeks. Okay. Thank you very much for joining us. We'll have to leave with that time. That was I don't as Joji is vice president of new democracy yet one of Greece's opposition parties. Now, the production of homemade guns is big business in west Africa. According to the pan African think tank the institute for security studies ISS these weapons can be both for as little as nine dollars.

"The name of the country to north Macedonia and allow Macedonia to join the EU a NATO. And it's the NATO part of it that that's really crucial. The EU it's to be Franken bit of pipedream way when you consider where Macedonia has economically less alone, the state of its judiciary and its education legal system, all the rest of the things that would have to improve NATO. This would be very, very, very quick. I mean, my matter of months, I think it'd probably go for ratification with the Member States in the early months of next year. So this is a very clear and immediate benefit to Macedonia just quickly before we go guy, of course, Greece is behind this. They've said that they've reached the steel and if it does change its name than it will stop opposition to finish method any to to join NATO, but not all Greeks, a happy. The nationalist coalition partner, the the independent Greeks is threatening to quit the government that might trigger an election. If the name change has a head, it's a much harder sell in Greece than it is in my stone. I think I think in Macedonia, you can say they'll be economic benefits. They'll be security benefits. You'll see an increase in the quality of your life just by inserting the word north into the name of the country. It's a very good deal for Macedonia, Greece. It's a hard sell simply because people say hang on a second Macedonian. These people in the to the to to to the north in the former Yugoslav Republic only came here in the sixth century, you know, that's Slavs. They call themselves Macedonian and there's a very, as we know, you know, it's very strong nationalist element in grace. If that gets up, it'll be very, very difficult for Alexis tsipras to get the ratification. They need three parliaments and that's the one to watch. I think guys alone Monaco's Belton correspondent.

"You are back with Madari house with me, Andrew molester with me. I've Gabe and Robin Listrik in Greece where people have, of course, absolutely. Nothing else to worry about. There have been renewed protests slash riots over the question of what the country immediately to Greece's north chooses to call itself. The issue of Macedonia's name has been a thing for reasons surpassing understanding since the collapse of Yugoslavia turned to Macedonia into a sovereign nation, Greece objects that there's a bit of Greece already cold that the issue has floated Macedonia's hopes of joining the EU and NATO and forced it to Lieber beneath the unwieldy acronym FYROM former Yugoslav Republic ov-, etc. Though. Absolutely. Nobody ever calls it by that except when they're trying to upset the Greeks, IVA. There is apparently hit end in sight. There's going to be a referendum in Macedonia on September. Thirtieth on an agreement which has been reached under which if it is passed by Macedonia's, people in parliament will see Macedonia. Rebranded as north Macedonia. Is that gonna fix everything? No, and I'm not entirely sure it'd be both because there's significant part of the Macedonian should I say the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia population Ramiz for you? You said that not me. Who object to this bullyboy or the to the south, telling them to rename their country and only give it a sort of partial name of northern Macedonia like east he more. Has anybody ever heard of west team all part of Indonesia. But nobody talks about it and simply I think that and of course, there is a significant population, not least those living in the what would it be region state of Macedonia in Greece who similarly object. So I wish I could show up to MS and I think this one's going to run and run you talking about. To me, that is the optimistic assessment because I am a huge fan of nine Matic disputes that just get protracted for decades and decades and decades for reasons that absolutely nobody understands or is able to explain Robin in the pantheon of such things way. Do you think this rights? Do you have deeply held beliefs on this subject? Don't have deeply-held beliefs. I have degree of understanding of the people who live either in north Macedonia, stroke firearm, or in Greece. The Balkans are very special part of Europe and of the world. Well. Time in the Balkans. And as I say, I have some sympathy, it's a region which has its known walls since time. Immemorial voters have come and gone invasions and occupations have come and gone. People need to hold onto something they hold onto is their identity. We live in an age of identity politics in which names mean something in which people care what they're called, which people care who governed by that country is called. I don't. I didn't think that right to take it as far as they've taken it, but it's not for me to say, I hope very much that is wrong. I was hugely relieved when the governments of Greece and the country immediately to its north agreed on a formula which they were both prepared euphemism for Macedonia. To say, instead of being cold Macedonia, it's going to have to be called the country immediately to Greece's north. Now that might. Let's the acronym going to beat her. That's going to be TC. T. g. that's not good. Diplomacies just drag this discussion, but something serious. There are the Balkans which have been bubbling under public over thirty years is now going through a very odd time. There was in you, as you said, some hope of a resolution of the message of the dispute down there at the same time. And there was also news hope of some settlement between between Kosovo and Serbia where they tend to be agreeing lime swap with a walk, could possibly go wrong. Well, I'll tell you what so Sergei rone's book Bosnia was blowing up. I shouldn't use that to Bosnia is becoming problematic gain..

"The Bulkin for a round of the latest headlines Onis Monaco's correspondent in the region. And earlier he spoke to Ben Ryland and began by talking about Macedonia's name referendum to be held at the end of September. You may remember those those this deal. This much trumpeted handshake between Prime Minister Zoran Ziya of Macedonia, and prime minister, Alexis tsipras of grace that Macedonia would rename itself north Macedonia. And that was going to bring an end almost thirty years of dispute over the name of the Republic of Macedonia and allow Macedonia to start negotiations to join NATO and the Arabian union. But of course, still obstacles to class. No simple as a handshake and the big obstacle to Clare in Macedonia has got to be a referendum on the issue. And there was also of shenanigans. I've about the question in the referendum would be now. British people know that you have to phrase questions in referendums extremely Catholic. Otherwise people might vote for something not knowing what it is voting for. So the phrased it very Calveley Ben and the Macedonian name referendum. The question will be, do you support EU and NATO membership by accepting the deal between Macedonia and Greece? How do you think that's going down with the political position in Macedonia? Questions of never stopped anyone in politics before. So I think this one will out guy will move eighteen moving along to something else that might be a little bit troubling for some Croatia as attempted to build a bridge of troubled volt is not everyone is pleased. No, absolutely. Not. So this is the Palley shots bridge which links to pulse of Croatia, whichever along the dalmatian coast. So at the moment to be one of drive from split to debris of Nick, you actually have to nip into Bosnia for a couple of kilometers, and then out of Bosnia again. And of course you have full bowl checks potentially to cross as you do that, leaving one country entering another leaving than entering and this is a great big pain in the bum for all concerned and Croatia has finally got tactic on Monday the construction of a bridge which links the two parts of Croatia on the dalmatian coast officially started all know spades in the ground is yet, but the construction project is officially underway. Three price has started than the ball. On very happy about it, at least the the Bosniaks of Bosnia. One of the main ethnic groups in Bosnia who was saying that Croatia is dimming this in a way which is very damaging to Bosnias interests that were at that port of Naham, which is tiny sliver of Bosnia. Why they have this bit of coastline will be somehow blocked by the bridge and thing that just roll the feel that the crash has done. This weather busni likes to Alton all the cheese about it, but this has been the trouble all of these. Yes, we may yet see a nice, lovely international legal challenge to this bridge. Is it more of a case that they would have liked to have been consulted before the bridge was built? Or is there of the serious issues with Bridget's health? Well, this thing that bridge might not behind to allow big ships into the of nam. Now the facts matter as name is an extremely sleepy pool in any case. But the Croatians of saying, no, almost -ly wyking to build this entirely high enough so that any ship you like can get into little Haba what's more all the construction will actually be taking place. On Croatian territory, so you can't complain about it. I mean, frankly, you know, you know how Bosnia is on. I know one has to be Catholic cliches about politics and the Balkans and the rest of it, but really throwing some money at Bosnia might have helped. I really things I can just see them finding the world's tallest ship just to prove the theory wrong.
