How France can avoid a “forever war” in the Sahel
"In twenty thirteen fronts sent soldiers to marley to stop jihadist advance seven years later and more than five thousand troops are still there in the region and despite their intervention twenty twenty was the deadliest year since the crisis began in the region known as a suhel avast sweep of land south of the sahara. So what is going wrong with the strategy of the so-called g five the group of five suhel countries became a facile. Mali mauritania initia- and chad. And of course a fronts will tell us more. I'm joined by the journalist and researcher in west africa and the sahel region. Pull me good morning pool. Good to have you with us. Good morning just explained to us how we've got to this state of did crisis what i think. We have to distinguish two things back in two thousand thirteen The jihad is already taken over the north of mali and they were launching a fresh push southwards and they had got down as far as the capital. Bamako that would have threatened security instability right across africa so the initial french intervention which was actually sent by Emmanuel macron predecessor. Phosphor alone which remember him that that may give you a sense of how far back in time. This was that was an almost conventional military intervention and it ended the jihadist the towns across the mouth of molly and remove that immediate threat but as so often in these situations a conventional conflict benefit of fragmented into more widespread terrorism localized attacks and some general instability. And that is much much harder to tackle. And you can't do it just with military means and so there's been a huge effort over really substantial seven years now as you mentioned to try and bring stability to the region but it's it's particularly difficult because you don't just have a ideology ideological jihadism if you're like fighting a terrorist war against a perceived international influence against the secular nature nature of these west african states. But you also have That mixed up with all sorts of local tensions and grievances For example between groups who depend on animal hooding and people who have commas and this is in this region the suhel which is just south of the sahara so it subjected to climate change water land grazing or in short supply. Population is rising rapidly. But the jobs aren't there to keep pace so you've got all her social and economic factors as well and that that's what's made it such a difficult challenge to bring this crisis under control but probably the most intense. The most dangerous situation was in the second. Half of twenty and nineteen when an armed group in eastern mali cooled islamic group in the greatest sahara pledging affiliation to die ish in the middle east staged a series of really very very bloody attack saw malia ninja army garrisons and the french also suffered heavy losses. And after that in january of last year there was a sort of strategic rethinking if you like and the decision to focus the military effort on them and to try and get up a stronger development have heard an peacemaking effort in other parts of the region sent. We have seen some progress since then

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out.

It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message.

And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone.

They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does.

Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us. I mean you could make a good comfortable but if money is silicon valley and they live in that world out there if you want to be able to go out and enjoy the great outdoors and have a comfortable lifestyle. Fishing industry in hunting industry. Got a better choice. you will never regret. it couldn't couldn't goodness it better myself. I have one more question and this is a really important question.

Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it. And i see this guy. Come out the come off the stairs. I see that it's outlander. And i'm like oh man that's that's all inter i wanna go say. Hi and say thank you. And so i get up and start to head that way and i kid you not. It was like a stampede. The ground shook. You know the sky got dark. There's all these people just came from every direction and kind of cut me off and you know it was like okay. you know. These guys are more important than me. These our sponsors. You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy. He's seventy six years old and he's still going and just definitely an inspiration to a lotta people and one of the things.

World in much better place to fight desert locust scourge UNs FAO
"It's been described as a biological time bomb the worst upsurge in decades this time last year. Swans of desert locusts started to spread across countries in the horn of africa devastating crops and people's livelihoods. Fa yours emergency campaign appealed for urgent action to avoid a looming locust plague and humanitarian crisis. Now one year on. I'll we winning the fight. I put that question to senior locust. Forecasting officer keith pressman case when we spoke a year ago or it was just as the desert locust swarms with starting to invade the horn of africa. Could you briefly sum up the events of the last you well. A lot has happened in the past year. The last time we spoke a year ago swarms or just invading kenya in the horn of africa. They're spreading through other countries in the region. And since that time now there has been several generations a breeding. So what that means is that the locust numbers had just increased further and this is mainly due to exceptionally good weather. Conditions for the locus. The the problem did not remain only in the horn of africa but last summer there is a very important threat to west africa. Fortunately that did not occur but there was an additional extension of the current upsurge in southwest asia so in countries like iran pakistan and india. Fortunately the end of the summer. I very intensive efforts of those countries. The app surge was brought under control there but it still remains in the greater horn of africa. So that means them. Kenya's mali ethiopia dan and yemen. And that's that's what we're facing now again this year. And it's very interesting because you know when we last spoke a year ago. I mentioned swarms invading kenya. Well that's what they're doing again now and they started invading kenya from the north from eastern ethiopia from central somalia. I'm just before christmas and this was predicted so similarly to what happened last year again is not a surprise. We were expecting this and are we in a better position now. Are we better place to fight the desert lucasville. Much much better. You know last year at this time. We're in a very very precarious situation. We had you know. Huge numbers of locust swarms had developed and were moving in invading countries. That had not seen logos for seventy years. You know such as kenya other countries. That was a worse situation and more than a quarter of a century. They just simply were not prepared to respond to such a large scale invasion. They weren't trained. They had no resources. I'm no vehicles no spray equipment. No pesticides no aircraft. You know no logisticians. You know all of the elements components that you need in order to invoke control campaign so we were really. Let's say trying to catch up very quickly. We had no funding you know. Let's say desperate collectively desperate. I should say and the country's nfl. We're obviously we're scrambling doing the best. We could have that time but it was not enough we had to really really upscale and that's what's been achieved so now here we are in january twenty twenty one. It means we have everything in place. Yes we do have shortages of funding to keep those operations going in. This is extremely critical. But at least we're not at the stage of having to look for aircraft or having having to order equipment from abroad and wait for it to be delivered. All of the countries have those Elements in place. The faa ledge. Emergency response has seen incredible. International support including the mobilization of funds to tackle the small towns and prevent a humanitarian crisis always succeeding in the fight against desert. Lucas that show. We are succeeding. Yes if we had not been what we've been doing for the past year we would have seen a play by now. You know swarms from west africa to india from the equator to the mediterranean. We don't see that so. I think that that's confirmation that we are succeeding. We have probably less locust swarms than we did a year ago. A doesn't mean that you know we can sit back and relax but you know. There's a lot of work to do but i think the response as you mentioned from the international community has been exceptionally good globally. A more than two point. Eight million hectares retreated and twenty twenty. And that's an extraordinary achievement. These efforts of course they've saved enormous amounts of crop production an estimated two point seven million tons of crops or save last year. That's enough you know to feed eighteen million people for an entire year. The cost of that That was saved is something around eight hundred million dollars and you put that into balance with you. Know what did it costs to save that production we received last year. One hundred and ninety four million dollars so with that investment were able to save you know eight hundred million dollars or the food in additional able to to protect and safeguard one point two million households their livelihood. It's so you know our desert. Locusts extremely devastating. Obviously the response in the pasture has been exceptionally good. And of course you have to remember. We're competing against other emergencies. Such as covid nineteen indeed twenty twenty was a particularly challenging year. What can we expect for the will. The current upsurge continuing the problem. Is that the weather. Continues to favor the locus and you know. In the past locus upsurges lukas plagues they collapse because of two factors on because of the human intervention. You know the control operations everything that. We're trying to do to reduce locus numbers and a failure in the weather at and so far we're saying the former i'm we see those upskilled control operations working very well. I mean more than twenty one aircraft or an operation in eastern africa. But we haven't seen the break in the weather. We had again an extraordinary event last month in the horn of africa. Right exactly where the locust were we had a cyclone in december. Cyclones don't occur in the horn of africa december. But this is the second year in a row where we've had that so until we see you know kind of a break in the weather. And what does that mean. It means a failure of seasonal rains essentially or very unusually cold temperatures or strange wins that might carry all the locus into the ocean and where they would paris but until we see that we still have the challenge to to manage. This locus upsurge and try to to reduce impacts on food security and people's livelihood so for this year twenty twenty one and basically from now until summertime. We need eighty million dollars and the majority of this would be spent on maintaining those essential control operations by air and by ground as well as protecting the livelihoods. That was cave craftsman. Faa's seniors locust forrcasting.

Maybe in tom a will be able to look back and think. Oh no she did do a thing. It went replace kate. Skepticism made me realize that considering what those who survive us want is court all this. I also had hunch that there were some tech options out there. That might work better for her than she might think. I'd like to now. Go talk to a couple of other companies and see what they're making and see if you would be on board with either trying them or seeing if they'd work for you must be great even if i don't use those platforms but won't give me ideas and thoughts of ways can make an impact and how legacy and why the not considered thank you guys so much.

The economic recovery has been slow and uneven
"When the economic shutdowns. I happened back in march. A lot of people thought it would just last for a few weeks maybe a couple of months workers would be furloughed for a little while and then maybe we all go back to work. Of course that was nine months ago and now in a lot of states a second round of economic shutdown so started. I think we are in long. Slow slog territory. Now how does your holtz is an economist with the economic policy institute and she says one thing has become clear. This recovery is not going to be quick and clean. I think headwinds now at least until we get a vaccine. 'cause then things will shift but at this point the headwinds are really dire. How'd he says there are a few different headwinds preventing v shaped recovery for one thing. A lot of businesses are just gone. They closed their doors. When a business closes like that there are ripple effects for one thing. The people who own those businesses are likely in rough financial shape and be who worked at those businesses are also likely to be in financial hardship. And then they're all the businesses that supplied those businesses split. The bakeries butchers and farms that supplied all of the restaurants. They are all seen their own. Bottom lines get smaller and so a lot of people are just spending less money right now and all of this together translates into lower demand and heidi sure hold says in demand even a small one has a huge effect on businesses and on the economy as a whole and gasset crowding right now because the man is low that means businesses see come up in their demand for goods and services so businesses need fewer workers businesses. See lower profits. It's it actually hurts. Everyone part molly moon has been able to rehire all of the ninety eight workers. She's laid off including her dad but even so most of them are now just working halftime or just way fewer hours than they did before the pandemic which means they're also earning a lot less. They're making about twenty five percent less. It's a lot less. Yeah when you live in seattle and a studio apartment is sixteen hundred dollars and you make eighteen dollars an hour. Which is our minimum. You can't really give up twenty five percent of that. I have a few single moms. That worked for me. That i just i wake up thinking about these women and i fall asleep thinking about them just like your says a lot of the people who still have their jobs have also seen their financial situations. Change technically mali's workers are lucky. They have a job. They have benefits but it does not mean. They're in the same situation. They were in back in january. Molly has zoom coffee date with different employee each day and she says everyone is always really kind in grateful on those coffee dates. But she's worried about what they're not telling her. You know people are proud and tough and resilient so to me who they know is working hard for them and cares about them. They're saying i'll be okay. But then i also know that those same people are e mailing our human resources email address for groceries support and we have a fund. Where if you email ask no questions asked. We will send you one hundred dollars gift card to safeway grocery store right now though. It seems like there's actually a light at the end of the tunnel inspite of winter and the current surge cova cases. We also have some vaccines now and those should be available to the public soon after that. A lot of economists including say a lot of economic activity will bounce back. We can start going back to offices and restaurants and bars and malls and ice cream shops there least for some businesses bounce. Back might prove to be too optimistic. Molly says she spends a lot of time these days looking at her financial projections and even in the very best case scenarios with a vaccine being available really soon people able to dine in. It doesn't look anything like a v shaped recovery. I don't have a financial model. That shows us back at two thousand nineteen sales until twenty twenty three. So i think you know it's it is not going to be a light switch. It's gonna be like a slow not even very steep uphill climb back to normal and this could be the case for the rest of the economy in fact the us federal reserve's projections are not much better than mali's. The central bank does not expect unemployment to be backed down to twenty nineteen levels until at least twenty twenty three and maybe not until later than that in the meantime molly moon is doubling down. She's just ordered a bunch of really nice outdoor furniture and heaters and umbrellas for her shops. She wants to create little patio areas. Where people can escape the rainy seattle winter and enjoy a dish of
The Molly Bish Case
"Molly bish was born on august. Second nineteen eighty three to parents. John bish senior a probation officer and magi bish an elementary school teacher in her early childhood. Molly her parents and her siblings. Heather and john junior lived in detroit michigan but when a young woman was abducted in their neighborhood while walking home from work and was later found murdered. They decided to move the bish family left detroit and moved to warn massachusetts a small community which they thought would be a much safer place to raise children in the summer of two thousand molly. Bish was a bright and well liked sixteen year old honor student and accomplished athlete and she was about to start her first job. Molly began work as a lifeguard at commons pond. A local man made swimming area surrounded by a forest. Her older brother john junior had been a lifeguard there and molly took over his position on the morning of june twenty seventh two thousand at nine. Am molly woke too bad news. One of her soccer team mates had been hit by a car while biking to work and was in critical condition. Molly was worried and upset but she had only been on the job for eight days and it was the first day of swim lessons at the pond. Somali decided that she go to work. Molly and her mother maggie headed out to commons pond. At nine fifty. Am they stopped by convenience store to pick up some water bottles their next stop. Was the police station where they picked up the required two way radio. This was necessary as there were no telephones at commons pond. The radio was the only way for the lifeguards to contact police or emergency assistance. If someone needed help just before ten. Am they arrived at the pond. Molly told her mother that she loved her left the car and made her way to her lifeguard post. Just before the first swimmers of the day arrived as the first people started to arrive at the pond. A mother noticed that there was no lifeguard on duty. When she approached mali's station she found her backpack a towel draped on the chair her whistle her sandals and the first aid kit which was open assuming that molly had wandered off with her friends and with swimming lessons having started. The mother sat in the lifeguards. Chair and assumed mali's duties for the rest of the lesson. She then informed the parks. Commissioner and mali's boss and that there was no lifeguard on duty at eleven forty four. Am when molly hadn't returned. Ed coke police. It had been just three hours since she dropped off her daughter at work. When molly's mother maggie received the phone call. She then called molly's sister heather and they rushed to the police station at first. The warren police department didn't take the incident seriously believing that the teenager had ditched work to hang out with her friends. They thought that molly was probably just upset about her teammate. Being hurt maggie and heather visited the hospital to see if molly had gone to visit her friend. But she hadn't been there. They then went to her boyfriend's house but he hadn't heard from her so maggie. Heather and molly's boyfriend went to commons pond. There were no signs of struggle at the scene. But molly's family knew that she would not have just wandered off and abandoned her post and all of her belongings.
Sahel of a mess: France's impossible peacekeeping mission
"Jihadists are entrenching themselves. Ever further in the suhel continent wide strip of semi arid land just south of the sahara desert. There are former islamic state fighters ousted from the middle east al qaeda associates and a number of ethnic militias. The sahel's hitter ends are far from any city state. Laws don't hold. Public services barely exist last year. Nearly five thousand people died in battles or acts of terror in the region six fold increase on two thousand sixteen. An estimated four million people have fled their homes this week. Sixty world leaders are among those who have gathered online for the paris. Peace forum where the crisis is being discussed. A united nations peacekeeping force has a rim to patrol and to help rebuild the embattled region but most combat missions against the jihadists are led by several thousand french troops. Some of whom are based this gow in mali. Well we arrived in gow by plane then took a french military helicopter which flew at low altitude extremely fast for about an hour to get to this advance base that they've built out there in the middle of the sahel sophie. Better 'cause our paris bureau chief. An extraordinary region absolutely vast nothing in any direction will miss no human habitation. A few acacia trees the occasional goatherd and a tiny settlement. But that's about it and then you arrive in the middle of this dusty zone read colored sand where the soldiers who've made it. All the way from france had just finished a month. Long operation against jihadist. So these were both regular french soldiers but also special forces the most recent of these operations. They killed several dozen jihadists. They seize weapons motorbikes fuel and to one of them just described it. Talk to me that it was intense. There were violent encounters on the ground. This is real proper combat that the french soldiers are engaged in there. And how significant is the french presence in the region. Well the french have over five thousand troops as part of this operation that they called it by far the biggest contributor to any of the operations in the region there is a un peacekeeping operation with over thirteen thousand soldiers but no single country contribute as many as the french do. There are two hundred and fifty british for example due to arrive. Soon there are three hundred and fifty germans there but in effect. What's is obvious. Once you're there is how the real combat operations fall to the french conditions. A tough is extremely hard. The sand everywhere is grueling. And it's risky. How risky last year was the region's deadliest for years. There was a particularly nasty incident at the end of the year when the french lost. Thirteen elite soldiers in a helicopter crash but local soldiers from nizhny. Molly have also been on the receiving end of terrorist attacks. Neo lost seventy one soldiers in one attack than there was another took out fifty from marley. So it's a constant vigilance. And there's a constant sense of vulnerability even for the armed forces operating out there. But why is it that francis chosen to take the lead to to be the country with the greatest presence on the ground. Franz historically has links to the region it is the former colonial power which also causes something a problem now because it gets accused of acting in a sort of neo clooney away and fronts also has permanent military bases out there so it becomes a sort of natural partner for crisis in the past. I think that the french have really tried to change their strategy. This year. emmanuel macron host to summit at the beginning of the year with the leaders of the five signs countries and the idea is to trained share some of the burden to make sure that the french show more supported on the ground by the european countries for example they i saw estonians their swedish officer but also to try and get the regional armies to do a better job themselves and that was very clear in the description that i heard of the operations where they were working really very closely alongside marlon and nigerian forces in some of these operations against the jihadists issue in june macron emphasizes commitment to the operation solo vehicle always mma which party about the the fight against terrorism. But it's also about the return of governance and development for the region in which he wanted to work with local governments that are much closer basis and is that big french presence making any real difference to the levels of jihadist violence in this. Hell when i think it's important to think of it in terms of different regions and where we were so that was in the sort of central new central mari. I spoke to general marquan rate. Who commands the oppression. Can't overall the some offered to trish. She tested in terms of often. You said he was very satisfied with recent operations there. I think the french sense that they've really dealt a blow to what they call a die ashley. Islam state in the greater hara premium capacity results. Iovine underneath the media and the general said they haven't disappeared is but they don't have the same capacity to cause trouble that they did at the end of last year. So i think there is progress in that particular zone where they've been conducting these intense operations. Of course. the problem remains that can operate in one area but they certainly can't operate all over the country and that's where she doesn't remains a big problem and so what prospects for for actually paring back their prisons. I think is incredibly difficult. You know. I think the the french Condemned in a sense to stay in the sahel. The no plans to leave or to withdraw all their forces tool. I mean it's more question of trying to share the burden more the adversity. they're up against these jihadist groups. They are incredibly mobile than a magic they move about on motorbikes and pickup trucks and they can just disappear into the bush in a way. That's for the french forces. It's just makes it very difficult to contain and to target and so it sounds as if the the only option than it is to draw in international help. I mean how. How hard will that be the reds Help on the grounds. The american particular provide ups a crucial intelligence support to the operation. The british operates three shoot. Kelly copters there as well as part of buchan and they if french beccles and troops into combat zones on special forces which is obviously much more declined to start operations but the estonians are there and there are some checks and swedish special forces due to arrive soon so european countries are helping franz. But they aren't at the same time. Exactly lining up to offer these combat troops. And i think franz sometimes feels that. It's doing this job very much alone but the situation you describe is probably not going to be massively changed by a few dozen or a few hundred special forces. Even it's an incredibly difficult situation. The best the fringe show hoping to do is to try and contain the threat to try and secure areas and enable millions to go back to their homes into a more sense of security in some parts of the country. But it's not about defeating the enemy across the entire country. I think that much is clear.
West African regional bloc lifts sanctions against Mali
"Molly and the transition government that has taken over a mixture of military and civilian personnel taking over after the coo of a few weeks back now to express their disapproval for the coup, the West African regional block Echo s imposed economic sanctions. It's now lifted. Those sanctions because of the appointment of a mixed civilian and military transition government. But the political crisis carries on particularly as regards the growing jihadist threat as well. There's all sorts of rumors back and forth about the release of militants and other people from prison. In return, it's hoped for two hostages. One of whom is a French humanitarian, the other whom a senior opposition figure, actually it's not quite clear whether that's happened or not. Andrew Levitch is watching the situation. He is a Mani watch it with the European Council on Foreign Relations asked him first off how the sanctions which have just being lifted, have bean affecting ordinary people in Mali. Phyllis ordinary people. It really depends on what sector you were, and there are many people who commented during son that they weren't particularly affected by sanctions. So it was a bit of a mixed bag for the impact on Mullins. But certainly it does mean that for many people, I think the process of the transitional government can move forward. And there's the less confusion and less back in port between Nikolas and Molly and then course also between the international community in Mali. And what do you think of the end of the set up as it is? Echo have Bean satisfied that there are sort of civilians in government positions, But there's still many, many military people in government positions as well. In terms of the transition government. Do you think they've done a good job? I mean, good figurehead. Is there a mechanism for the handover? Which everyone agrees on? All the truth is that we don't know. Right now. It is still very early on DH as I've written. This transitional process has been steered by the military wanted from the beginning. Embattled change their very song represented in some of the key ministries of transitional government. Of course, the head of the National Committee for the Salvation of the People is still the vice president of the tradition, and the president and prime minister really seem to have been hand cooked by the CNST. That doesn't necessarily mean That the transition won't go smoothly. It's just that what we're seeing now is that the military and the military junta has kept their hand very firmly on this process. And so we're going to have to see what unfolds over the next 18 months. There's a very ambitious set of reforms that have been laid out and the transition government. There are some people in a government very well regarded. But at the same time, apparently some cause to be concerned by how predominantly the winter is featured in this transitional government. Do the military have an incentive to cede power? They say they're going to go do they have an incentive to go? Well, so this is part of the competition because there have been a number of allegations of corruption within the security services wasn't she is? Of course, there have been some reports that The members were very unhappy at this corruption they've promised to fight. Some of the corruption that was alleged against the son of the former president, of course, was in the National Assembly but also was the chair of the National Assembly's Commission on Defense and Security, the transitional president promised in his opening speech as president after he's Forbes oath of office. To combat this corruption, but we're going to have to see if it actually happens in practice. That's when you did the hard part also about the kind of the reports and they are conflicting reports. We should say of the possible release by extremists of two figures, a French aid worker and the leader of the opposition as well, who was taken while campaigning in the Timbuktu area. Would this indicate on opening of relations between the hunter on DH militant forces in the north? What do we read into that? Because that would seem on the face of it to be good news. Certainly thank everyone is hoping that these reports are true and that the two hostages will be released soon. There's been a lot of conflicting information just today and yesterday about What was actually happening. This does seem to mark very significant concession on the part of the government. Of course, these negotiations have been ongoing for years off and on to start and then, of course, policy say they've been going on again off and on since he was kidnapped, So this isn't just something from the hunter. I think we can safely conclude that this wouldn't have gone forward without their approval.

Update On The Leadership Conference In Sweden
"The world is ripe and ready for restarting and looking ahead. So where better to get a clear and uninterrupted view than from the eastern Swiss Alps and that is the setting for the chiefs. Monaco's. Conference which welcomes visionaries, founders and industry leaders for look ahead how business and indeed the whole world could move forward from here well. Is, tyler lay and he students all through the day's event at Subaru in summer. It's and I'm delighted to say he's taken a moment out of the conference to join us now to tell us what is happening where he is tyler apart from the obvious attraction from the chairlift right to an Alpine dinner, it must feel good to bring people together again. Good afternoon. Good afternoon Emma absolutely, and I think that has been one of the probably. Comment people just feel so good to be out in the world again and just meeting people in a setting which feels pretty normal I. I don't think there's much going on here that would make you think otherwise that we are still in in the midst of course cases rising in Europe, we have Orrin teams being imposed and and and borders also going up as well. So I I think that is. One of the people are just happy to be together and be listening to great ideas and and and I think also to be challenged. A little bit as well. We'll Tennessee little bit more about these challenges because people are coming together facing momentous challenges. What is it the world trying to focus on here? Well number, we just had a failed bomb nora failed bomb is the CEO of vitro. Of course, one of the world's most respected design brands I imagine in many many listeners right now are right likely sitting on a beatrice AU faux or chair or stool or in front of a desk. Here's a business, which is which is completely focused on the topic of what is going to happen to our city centers you know will work from home account for fifty percent of the workforce is going to be twenty percent. So we tackle that issue. It. With her and it was interesting. You know she was talking about are we may be moving into a world of spoke Yes. They'll be a main office in a city that will there almost almost More like owned and operated co working spaces where people come together. So that was one topic but then we just had a our he's the head of the the intermeshed. With the Red Cross and the and he was looking at at the current crises. The fact that we have a pandemic Emma but of course, get thirty messy parts of the world is he talks about this hasn't gone away and he's just a literally almost fresh off the plane from a mission in Mali, And Burkina into Hell region. What I find interesting is is the names of the people you've gathered that. We oversee have world of of of of vitro, but then. We have the head of security policy in the Swiss Federal Department of Defence Civil Protection and sport you mentioned now we have the head of the red. Cross. These are figures from the world of dealing with emergencies. Does that reflect the kind of times that we're in? Will it does because you're going to have an informed view about about risk and where the world is going. Then I think you do need people who are at the pointy end that that point he and might be how is a small but very economically successful. Country like Switzerland, how is it going to navigate geopolitical issues that wide Switzerland potentially need forty new fighter aircraft at a time when people talk of drones and and country, which is known as being neutral, and at the same time, you also want to hear from someone who's the head of risk for one of the biggest banks who can of course, apply some of these elements as well to a of. Course, the end consumer, the person who wants to go in byproducts from that that bank and how does that impact your day to day? How are we able to look ahead at the moment I mean is what we're talking about today stuff that we need to deal with at that pointy end in the next six months to one year or is there any sense yet that people can sink a little further ahead? Well I think actually North Alabama interesting because someone else oppose a similar question about short-term. What are you doing right now with marketing just how do you look at advertising? How do you promote a brand right now how do you stay top of mind and then what you do long term and her response with where we're a family company from Basel we have time and and so of course, we continue to develop an invest in great furniture and we and we take we take a long-term view. And yes you also have to be mindful of of the realities of up today as well. I mean is she's a little later on the conference to be talking about. The chiefs as a future when you talk about sustainability. And yesterday, the president of the European commissioners of a funder line was saying that we will rebuild our way out as a covert pundit DEMOC following an entirely green agenda. But when you have things like you know you're orderbook isn't as full as it should be your staff coming back from furlough and you're thinking, how am I going to make it through the next six months and people are saying actually you need to be green a you need to think about this you need to think about that. The priorities become quite quite challenging they. Absolutely. And I think that you know that that is one of the topics I mean, how much does you could talk about sustainability all you want but you know does. Your does your program, which of course has the best intentions is that we need to take a back seat for because you know that was going to involve retooling your factory. You knew that it was going to actually mean of course, upping the prices or accepting a more expensive supply chain, and maybe that has to get not kicking the grass necessarily, but it maybe has to drift out maybe three years I according to your plan and i. think that is also something we've heard you today is well, if if you're going to do these things aren't easy a lot of his. Let's walk at first before we talk and try to either talk green credentials are sustainability agenda and I think actually on that probably the one thing that I think is really coming out of the conference so far I'm as is. Being a by the let's let's let's invest in things that last And it really interesting to hear. You have MS failed I'm talking about you know if you go and buy an eames chair and I believe you're probably sitting in an email chair right now if I know it studio you're in. Those comes with a thirty year guarantee. Extraordinary and you know that has to be now and again you know is the entire chair perfectly sustainable no but it's not going to be in in five years either it's absolutely not in it's been comfortable for very long time finally looking into this afternoon. You're taking the floor talking to us about a few things that have caught your eye that you like and that if it's inspired you I mean we we have to be lifted out of this somehow what are you talking about them? Well. After lunch I I do a spin around the world and of course, the look at some things that yeah. Basic things that I that I experienced in everyday life, which which I think are are interesting that we we might need we might need more of so and I think probably one thing I was going to slide them. And you'll appreciate this. There's a lot of Austria and they're the world maybe needs a little bit. You know even though of course I'm standing in Switzerland at the moment. But if I if I look across the the mountains look across the border I know that Austria lies beyond and there's definitely whether it's brands whether it's the urban interventions that the world needs a little bit more Austria it full of wisdom of real and I'm just Sitting next to our affairs at a Christian mccue is half Australian I've never seen warranties thumbs up in all my days time. Thank you so much.

"Government until an election Khun take place following last month's coup. Emily Hola reports. Over the past three days, the military leadership has held talks in the capital, Bamako with opposition and civil society groups.

It is not entirely his fault when the last coup was launched in two thousand twelve the resulting political instability allowed a range of Islamic fundamentalist groups to capture territory in the north of the country aligning themselves with various ethnic militias warring between themselves. Many. Of these jihadi groups were beaten back by French forces who with Kato blessing arrived to help restore order. But. The Jihadi threat was never completely eradicated and the country has spent the better part of the last decade struggling to keep the security situation in check the violence has only increased of late in addition to the mounting casualties and people forcibly displaced opposition leader and former presidential candidate. Somme lassie say was kidnapped presumably by jihadists early this year. Protests have been roiling the country for months. Now, the more immediate trigger for the protests was the decision by the constitutional. Court. To overturn provisional results in marches legislative elections handing ten more seats to Kato's party VAT brought the people out to the streets in force but the breaking point came on August eighteenth when a contingent of army colonels anointed themselves the National Commission for the People Salvation Arrested Keta, and various ministers of the government and Keta to announce his resignation on TV while wearing surgical mask doesn't get more twenty twenty than that. It's unclear whether the protesters were in league with the coup plotters from before or if the colonel's acted under their own initiative. Regardless, the junta seems to have the popular support of the Molly and people given the very real struggles of the country over the last decade. That's not shocking less enamored with the military coup or the UN, which has about fifteen thousand peacekeepers stationed in the country France with roughly five thousand troops on the ground the US which has a couple drone bases stationed nearby in.

While there is plenty of sympathy for the Molly and people. International actors have good reason to be worried by the recent developments for all his faults and there are plenty Keta was supportive of Western efforts to combat jihadism in the region and the ensuing political chaos will give these groups the opening to expand their hold on the country. Echo off has dispatched a team headed by former Nigerian President goodluck Jonathan to negotiate with the coup plotters and figure out next steps failure to reach an agreement could dent the blocks credibility but it is unlikely to offer the junta much room for compromise on the contours of a democratic transition..

There mediation was by many viewed as favorable to the president by completely ruling out any possibility of his departure from office but also by protecting the prime minister who was a caterer loyalist. So they were already nervous about the prospect of change coming from the streets there even more. So now that it's men in uniform who has taken control and For the reasons that we've discussed before I think there is a clear determination to to protect the rule of law and constitutional process, but also to protect Keta in the current form of government. As you said Echo walls of said, what they want is the elected president of Mali restored will they really be thinking that that is a plausible option? No, or are they just saying that because they feel like it's the sort of thing they should say at this moment, it's a good question and it is very maximalist position that they're taking to an extent you know even more so than the rest of the international community France on the nineteenth of August issued a statement. That was acknowledging Keita's resignation. So in a way, the French position is slightly different in that they had recognized that they needed to move on and go back to a transition echo..

"Welcome to breakfast leadership podcast. It's Michael Michael here and I have a very special guest with me today. Marie Elizabeth Molly. How are you today? Marie Elizabeth I'm doing well thanks. I'm happy to be here with you up either that you are here. We met at the New Media Summit back in February twenty nineteen and one of the things just to let people know I was a one of the podcast hosts that you know received pitches from a hundred and fifty people and There were a ton of awesome individuals in in that group including yourself And that all have this incredible story and in the work that you do Is impacting a ton of people's People's lives. And one of the key things that you you focus on in in the people that you serve and help is talking about relationships. And how they impact or how they're impacted. I should say With the work that we do so also a little bit about you in how you got into this this work and you know some of the things you're seeing your clients Struggle with well I You know we teach what we most need need to learn all right. So I've been someone who long prioritized work and my clients over my relationships chips and it took now being in my fifties and being in a relationship that's really the healthiest and best and most fulfilling I've ever had when I noticed that similar patterns started starting to creep in where I I was taking clients late in the day or was continuing to work on stuff after dinner or as an entrepreneur it so easy and I work at home so so it's way too easy to let work bleed into home life It's very hard to find a separation create separation and so when I noticed does that patterns starting to happen I really took responsibility and You know worked with my partner to find a way to have our relationship be as important and that is as prioritized as the work that I'm doing the world and so this is what a I end up helping other people with quite a bit Sometimes it's the reverse thing. They have a good relationship but something is off in how they're relating to their work and what I find. Is that the skills that we are. Naturally strong in in one arena can be transferred or fed over to the other arena And help us there too and a lot of times. We just haven't thought of it that way that that there's way more connection with how we are at home to how we are at work then we consciously realize and so I help people make that conscious and be more deliberate in. That's crucial in one of the things that I a hammer home with people people. When I'm helping people recover from burnout or prevent it is oftentimes? Were trying to be two different people assigned to be you know somebody a boss or an employee at work and then their home life is different and sometimes if we're going out with friends were different there and it. It just gets confusing as to who are we and we need to harmonize all of that because we are one being and yes. We're doing different tasks and activities Eddie's but at the core of our being as we need to be who we are and in harmonize those things in Anna in a work in life situation when I hear work life balance I don't believe of balanced Trying to balance an egg. It's like it's I use that word either. It's it's a harmony type of thing it is a harmony and a an an an integration. You know it's it's because is there are times where maybe you're in the middle of a launch and you are going to be pushing harder work and so it's not about balance but it's about Really integrating Yourself into the fabric of all that you're doing. I love that that you that you highlighted that because a lot of what I do with people's really helped them Connected to the truth of who they are and what they actually want which is often different than what they were taught to want what the culture says we should want what You know perhaps our religion or our our educational system says we should want and so I helped people figure you're out what the authentic thing is and then do that failure in all the areas and then you get so much happier and more fulfilled. Because you're actually being yourself and it makes it easier to kind of shift gears throughout your day because otherwise you you just so disjointed near in you're not being your true self throughout your day working mom I got an act this way in which we do we there's behaviors bureaus and cultural things. That we have to alignment. But it should be something it's an actual that we don't have to think about And as I joke with people it's a good the thing that our bodies naturally breeze on their own because I think many of us get so far into our head that we would probably forget how to freeze and we just And not you know not take that time to actually take stock of what's going on in life one of the things we talked about in the pre show as well is when you're doing the type of work that you do and you're working with a lot of people bolander dealing with all kinds of different challengers and you have all of these things coming at you. You face a dilemma. And I you know we've talked about you know we're kind of both in the same boat on this where there's just so much going on for us. The we have this dilemma of almost work overload for us and and the difficulty of trying to discern. Okay what do we need to be focusing on what we need to work on now. Now what do we need to take a break from. Or what do we need to say no to and we. We both talk about that. In in the work we do on having that permission to say no to make sure that our relationships in our lives are are well in tune and and better harmonize but even for us you know we run into those situations so it's a little bit about that. Yeah that's really up for me right now I I not only do. I love my work but I also have other passions that I love like underwater photography and writing and and and spending time with my man. You know so I recently realized the summer. We've been in a long long remodel of a home. That's the other side of the country And so we're going back and forth check on it. We thought we would move back in June. It's been delayed again mm-hmm and so with that on top of all the wonderful things that I love to do. I realized at the end of July I had scheduled way you too many things and or Inaugu and some of its rotation and some of its business related and I realized I I just had to cancel something. I really wanted to do it. It's it's a community I love. It's a conference that I really wanted to be attending and Dan. It's just too much and in the conversation with my partner what we decided to do for the time being which I think is a great way you too. If you're not good at saying no which I am not always good at because I love everything I do and so I tend to think yes. It's a great idea media to go diving right after we do this retreat or whatever it is and and then I realized that was too much right but so what we've decided to do is hold older a quote unquote business meeting between ourselves. ONCE-A-WEEK WE'RE GONNA start with once a week where we look over the schedule especially our travel all schedule and honestly evaluate every single thing. Do we WANNA do this. If I've scheduled something for business is that still aligned aligned. Is that something I should maybe cancelled to make more room for US ETC SO I. I'm a firm believer in enrolling and people to help you if you're not good at a certain thing and saying no isn't my strength. I mean it's my strength in certain places but when it's it's talking about all the things that I love to do I'm less good at it because I want to do it all and so I'm having to learn how to prioritize and I'm enrolling him in helping helping me to learn how to prioritize because he's got a clearer I in some ways than I do on my schedule so he'll ask me questions like really. Are you sure you only want one day. Turn around between this and that you know maybe you want to build in some extra time. Is that a spot where you need to take a day off or you need to maybe fly a day later etc etc.. So that's one way that you could have your relationship and your work be more integrated is actually invite your partner her into helping you schedule yourself. If you're an entrepreneur and you tend to have overload may be your partner has a as a better I than you do or would would ask the right questions that would help you remember that. You WanNa have downtime and you want to spend time with them or your kids if you have kids or whatever. The scenario scenario is that's absolutely precious information advice because they will see things that you won't in a similar situation where Mike partner. She's a whole lot better at scheduling than I am and she. She can see things That I often can't and even you in places where I've had to do scheduling of shifts for people work in an organization that I was helping out I would. I would have her. Let's do this because I'll have ten people at one shift then nobody at another and even if you color code it and you could see gaps. It's like I just I. That's that's a skill set that I Am Very very very weekend and I acknowledge that and then and I could spend time to try to make it better or I should say you know what I'm gonNA delegate off to somebody else that But yes but saying no and having the permission to do that make sense and and even with me with the podcast casts shows and all of that you know I look at my schedule and oftentimes I'll say automate A lot of the scheduling and there was one that I was using using for a little bit that was double booking which obviously doesn't work Had aside a you know had to fire that scheduler and go back to something that I was using before but you shuffled around and then you gotta give yourself enough time to To do those things and it's something that I enjoy but also not overload your day. Where you are you know interviewing thirty people in a day? Only Christians can do that that yeah he he's he's a marathon a definitely look him up people because he does some great work at.

He has an extensive background in international national peace operations notably in Bosnia Herzegovina Sudan and Afghanistan Ben Mailer from you. A news asked General Yoon spoarer to outline why the U._N.. Must maintain its presence in Mali first of all the U._N.. When Mission Imola is important not just from all not just for the region but it has implications for other parts of the world so it's a conflict that should do concern a lot of other countries and we see that manifest itself in the huge commitment <hes> in the force with some fifty five nations being dedicated to make a difference and second part is that is a very challenging mission that has <hes> threats that seldom come to to U._N.? Mission we have I._D.. Threats we have other ESA metric threats that makes it a difficult <hes> operation. It's serious in the sense that <hes> it defects population ocean at the end of the day the mall populations are the victims every day and in particular in the central region. We have a lot of attacks against civilians we see. The <hes> women receive children being attacked <hes> on on different <hes> in different locations and this is an environment that is unacceptable and we will do everything we can to to mitigate these threats. Somebody has described U._N.. Mission in Mali as probably the most dangerous peacekeeping mission in the world. What would you say to that? What is your view on that while I haven't found a comparison but it is <hes> <hes> it is a difficult mission and sadly we have had too many fatalities in the mission the way forward is to stay firm to stay proactive and to adjust to the threat environment and eh be unpredictable with regards to to these <hes> groups on groups that <hes> challenge security we will continue to do so we are determined and we are focused on our mandate? What is the greatest need for you who and the troops in Mali to be able to succeed against this violent forces in the country particularly in the north to make progress at the most important part for the country's a whole <hes> and also to ensure <unk> security is to to make sure that the government extend its authority throughout the country being pressed sent the providing social services including security that will be the best way to bring the country? Ah Back to peace and stability we will be there s a facilitator supporter but the government is too key actress for people who may not have the map of Mali. Can you describe how broad. Road how wide how big the country's because you mention govern presence in many parts is probably lacking describe how large and Iria covered in why that is challenged well. It's a large which country and <hes> it's some fourteen million people in the country comparing it to other countries <hes> in particular juror most of them would be divorced by by the size of the mall moving from Bamako grow up to the north where we have stationed take some three hours of flying and that's not at all at a very north of the country so it's a huge area to cover some parts of debt. Ah Danced in the central region southern part but in the north <hes> there are the people that live there are dispersed small villages and they are spread out throughout this vast area yeah. It's not just the U._N.. Peacekeeping mission that is active in Mali varies also the French counter-terrorism abrasion going on in Mali and we also have the G. Five Sahel joint force how how do you as force commander for the U._N.. Mission combined with all these other elements. Are there too many chiefs too many actors making things complicated how you manage well <hes> at the end of the day we all the have shared the same aspiration and bringing peace and security to molly we have different mandates and we have different reporting chains but on the ground we share this aspirational moving. Living things practically on the ground so I say with great determination that the corporation works very well be meet we discussed we exchange information on a daily basis on different operations. We will have to continue to do this even more in the future but I'm very pleased with a corporation that <hes> that we enjoy and it's a necessity to have different different <hes> missions because we have so different mandates the situation in Libya. A lot of people believe that is what has led down south to the deteriorating situation in Mali. How much is the situation in Mali affected by instability insecurity up north in leader aid? It's difficult to say to what extent but <hes> there is. <hes> correlation what happens in northern Africa Libya impacts <hes> molly as much as impacts the neighboring countries so molly and we will have to continue to monitor development there in order to better understand how security threats toward security will develop in the coming in coming months. If somebody's feeling hopeless thinking that the situation in Molly's just worse how would you as false command. Give them hope to tell them that you can see light at the end of the tunnel. What signs do you see? I see some very promising signs and I would like to emphasize the government's commitment now stepping forward realizing the urgency and the need..

"Any is most people for a couple reasons one he'd only been there about thirty six hours he walks in to the situation with these long term tensions in on one hand volunteers to join in hazing without really knowing anything going on. But on the other hand, wasn't the one that applied choke whole wasn't the one that had had sort of his long-term friction. So I don't know, for whatever reason they saw him as the lesser Fender. And like you said he'd been in seal team six for almost a decade he's been involved with some pretty high profile missions. Can you talk about some of the missions that he had been involved with? So they looted to a couple. They kept it pretty, pretty broad that they did mention specifically that he was involved in the rescue of an American who had been held captive overseas for more than two years. And that's bergdahl, right. Unclear a I, I didn't know whether or not this, there was a candle of a rescue operations. There was a doctor recovered at one point. So so I'm not really sure which one and then he was involved in some pretty intense fighting in the horn of Africa as well. Yeah he did. They brought a master chief up in his seal uniform with Trident and, and the dress whites. An EMMY starts talking about this operation in orange Africa where the parents that they were engaged, like ten yards away, at Matthews didn't take cover the way that the master chief said would have been acceptable. And, and the the fire pie with was ended. But they tried to a constantly circled back to sort of the more positive things Mathews has done over the last fifteen years, I think, to try and make them a more sympathetic a figure, and there is probably put some context to, to, you know, where we were when this all went down, and I wish you all these attention being paid to these guys who, who killed this soldier and I, I was looking online earlier and it's hard to find you know, that, that staff sergeant Melchior was also. Really impressive soldier and had done some really impressive things. Yeah. The whole thing is just wild. It's just a shame that it's something so stupid like that. Could could do this. So, yeah, this case is definitely been huge across our veterans Twitter and all the stuff that we've been seeing. So what were some of the aspects of social Justice? What actually got in the way of making the case drag out? So initially night, this went down basically, immediately after Melgar turned up dead. Matthews and deed off to seals. Based on documents. Also the testimony at this point. Apparently said, hey, we're going to own this. You marines that were involved in this basically, steer clear. So you know they initially when looking at the two sales, but over the span of several months, eventually, they moved in and realized that there were more people involves and they ultimately charged at two marine raiders as well. It will working with with the seal team. Six team in Mali. In fact, while I will to get you back on the show, whenever the case, actually wraps up, Dan, thanks so much for taking the time. And letting us know what actually happened. Please clap. The big takeaway after talking with Dan is I'm really interested in this e what happens to the other members? Two other seals on the two marine raiders who are involved, their punishment is going to be extreme. If the only the only the other guy only got one year right something, you just don't agreem- Barack can't die as a result of hazing from his superiors. And you only get several slaps on the wrist that right? Yeah. No idea how that's going to turn out, but definitely will be following along. Yup. We'll be following along with maybe that's one of the ones involved in these pardon stories that we're talking about to, which I think one more note about that before we skip onto round number four. I am also confused at how this is happening again with an act of trial..
