It's not a small beach web in Malta terms it's more. It's popular but's it's not overcrowded like some of the beaches are mortar. The beaches in Gozo tend to be far less crowded. So it's a really nice spot to swim. One other nightspot if you're not done with archaeology would be. Yet ended another set of. Temples, Goto. I believe it's a bigger complex than Hajer EAM vonleh throng I'm not too sure about that. But the name again young as the name implies it's giants, spreads, giants lived, and the reason is because it's built with stones which are so huge that they would be very difficult to put in place even with modern technology. So it's a bit of a mystery how the stones have been quarried and placed in such a way and that place. So, as you can see, there's a little bit of everything a little bit of everywhere. Well and what I'm seeing that that is a one a UNESCO World Heritage site and two I'm seeing that it's the second oldest religious structure in the world but. We'll talk about the Turks there. Some of the time that they have someone that's claimed builder, but we're going way back to thirty six hundred. In fact, we taught was we're always told it was the largest and A. Free standing structure in the world. But I went to look that up and it seems it's not anymore than we do have to verify that claim we're very. That's okay. I always look those up because I find that tourism board sometimes exaggerates a little bit. That's right. Then in the summer months every town and village more has his own fest. Village. There are, of course, some other and additions, but it's mostly conditioning feast where the patron saint of that parish of that city is celebrated. So you get bent club or a number of bent clubs decorations along the road and atmosphere of festivity in that particular week. But depending on when you come over to motown the tourism authority has a website which gives a calendar over. One could supplant. Maybe visit this feast especially close to do weekends, Fridays or Sundays where there's a lovely show of fireworks. We love our fireworks displays yet. So they can be noisy for some but I believe they're also beautiful containing. So that's something which if you're visiting Morton some period, you should probably put on your dinner. Season is usually between May and September I believe. So it's easy to get the into that. Well, the country goes crazy probably in Santa Maria which is fifteen.

Shama spoke to the director of arlos decent work team for South Asia based in the UN's India Office Dot Malta. We have learned from two thousand eight nine. Financial Crisis at the coordinated. International Policy Response will be much more effective in getting out of this crisis and limit The rise for example in an employment. And what I mentioned before. So really to protect workers in the workplace to stimulate the economy and employment and also to safeguard income for workers. So that would mean for example extension of social protection also finding ways of part-time work fulltime work teleworking and see how how the social partners can respond to this and likewise with the government help to extend actually schemes so how is assisting the countries especially India to fix the situation which is vast right now. Yes we have two major tools. That really can help also instill confidence and trust in the population in particular to favor social dialogue dialogue between the government workers and the employers about the measures solutions to be put in place and at this important actually to have Workers and the people really to idea to them so that implementation becomes effective likewise we have seen before in crisis situation how international labor standards are proven instruments.

Of course they are kind of hard hit because the global economy supply chains said for a grinding to a hole in this scenario. And what we see is that existing schemes that are already there can be used to be topped up and also in particular reach out to more likewise micro small and medium enterprises are really the backbone of the economy in the unorganized sector here in India. And it is important that they get support from the government in terms of for example in benefits that can be extended to also that the balance and the private sector can support this economic local economic tissue. Really that is so important also for for building but really to save these jobs and for social cohesion in particular any message that I would like to give. Yes really I think.

Russia is looking to help Trump win in 2020

"What is Russia doing to interfere in the twenty twenty election well that question came up in a briefing the intelligence community's election securities are gave house members last week in Malta reports say that the meeting focused on Russia's supposed preference for president trump as a candidate the suggestion that so angered the president that he replaced his director of national intelligence and today we're learning from the Washington post that US officials told the Bernie Sanders campaign that Russia was trying to help him too we're gonna talk through all this with someone who studies how Russia interferes in elections around the world in a jungle it's of the Wilson center welcome back thanks for having me Audie I want to start with the news from this afternoon this reporting that U. S. officials told the Sanders campaign that Russians are trying to help their candidate are you surprised by this development no I'm not surprised at all you know in twenty sixteen we saw Russia support Bernie and trump equally as well as other candidates on the fringes rushes I'm always to pull apart the fabric of society from the sides and cause distrust and chaos in our electoral system can you talk about what you mean by that is this about information I know in Sanders statement he said some of the ugly stuff on the internet a tribute to our campaign may well not be coming from real supporters what do you know about how Russia actually interferes while Russia uses the fissures in our societies in order to kind of so that just trusting chaos so we're not actually talking about fake news and we weren't talking about fake news and twenty sixteen either they're using real misgivings in society eighty eight cents to get people at each other's throats so yes I'm sure some of those supporters are the those that those comments that Bernie Sanders supporters are making online might be Russian trolls and bots but there are also some real people making those comments to all of the best disinformation is rooted in a culture so this is not about the ballot box or voting machines or anything like that so now I'm truly not this is this is information warfare sometimes it comes in the form of information laundering that sometimes we are seeing you know act campaigns coordinated in secret and closed Facebook groups were seeing advertisement spot although the social media platforms have managed to crack down on that somewhat but we're also seeing information wondering where narratives are going through homegrown actors and that's the sort of thing that the Sanders campaign is insinuating and we're seeing that are supporting the trump campaign as well based on your research why would Russians want to help both president trump and senator Sanders we know I think Putin the Kremlin's goal here is to increase Russia's standing in the world and when when Americans got its own problems what we're looking inward fighting with each other worried about participation and discourse our democratic discourse it looks better to Russians Russians can points to American say no that democratic project over there isn't going so well aren't you glad you've got this very staid authoritarian system here in Russia and it increases Russia standing in the world in our final moments what do you make of the actions by the president upon hearing this news well I worry about what message that sends to Russia certainly we have not imposed costs on Russia or other bad actors that are seeking to influence our discourse ahead of the election but not only that it means that the good work that's being done by many civil servants in the federal government to fight against malign information tactics that it means that that is undermined as well without that recognition from the White House that disinformation is a threat we cannot counter it and twenty twenty that's managing codes of the Wilson center her book how to lose the information war is out this summer thank you for your time thanks for having

Where's that we have clients from everywhere in the world but When we first started out we mostly Chinese exchange however Two years ago we expanded internationally translated lots of languages and we now have op a lot of international desserts while three million users that's That's the excitement going on two thousand thirteen. Of course that's like five decades space moves so quickly. What are you guys doing at the moment? That's what do you see onto bill that exchange. Let's make it more user. Friendly Bradley was off more products targets. What what are you guys doing to to connect the next three? Got It so when we first started out. We're really focused list of back in that day. It was mostly retail traders. Since then we've had a lot of institutional investors coming and more higher end traders. Come in when I I sorted out We really focus on providing a great user experience so for example we're able to Ten thousand transactions per second so you know so typically we only process a thousand Ten thousand banks will process or algorithm is thought powerful Were experience is seamless. We have two million on her up. So we really focused on having that seamless experience and then about a year and a half ago we started adding in all all of the new features like margin trading margin lending derivatives trading investment plans and. It's been proven really really popular with all of our users. The newest thing that we launched in that's been incredibly popular has been our hoddle Hold right eight and And earn and with this functionality. You're able to take your funds and either stadium so typically when you state coins you you have to run a special programme. But on our exchange you can just simply Input it with that functionality. And you get a return directly from that or you can walk your points for a set amount of time and you're able to earn up to thirty percent annual returns per year. So this is that what you're getting thirty four your module driving. We've got a lot of liquidity we've been around for a really long time plus yes and Besides from that we also have a very advanced. VIP system so you get like discounts on fees and stuff like that and so so that keeps all the liquidity providers interested To make sure that you know they support us for the two hundred plus cryptocurrencies owner owner. So I tried I love you. Get the mortgage. I can get the better as long to go with it. Leverage slippy dental. It's very very much so warlick's offering module trading on and what level of modulators orders right So for more than trading we offer two hundred so that's quite strong in on all of the margin trading it is unclear to we do not handle anything we just take a fee of but It actually means that if you do more lending You can earn up to to seventy three percent annual returns per year. That's not all the time. Jose depends obviously when there's a origin bitcoin people want to typically want to borrow USD t to To Buy Bitcoin and then they return it. And and did you can make a Lotta money actually from just doing margin lending. Wow that's pretty special. So what are you guys do in the way of helping other tribal base it looks obviously respected. Elected is Mike Walker's lost to US exclusively volatilities inside we educate people we teach them how to try. What are you guys doing to do so help it become educated on so on our one of our trading platforms for perpetual contracts? We actually have a task last night so I think really important because when you do a perpetual contracts your I mean it's it's very high risk right so oh you want to make sure that you know what you're doing so we really encourage anybody who's not like a professional professional trader to I. Try everything out. Yeah and you're able to you know type things out. We all come out with like educational videos and stuff like that and we're always looking to pair up with like influencers to To kind of show how you can use as the platform in general we've seen users find the platform easy to use And everything can be automated for placing orders and stuff like that so Yeah I think traders find the platform really great invited if I raised in order to stop close links to older as well as well. Well I I if I get triggered tried to stop and think sleeping. Yes ourself accountable. Important function for sure will realize how long Obviously you're doing something right. Where are you based out? All remaining speaking with a little bit is as we do. It's just interesting to see where the action set up the show. Whereabouts really sort of? I guess exchanged friendly out there. So we have offices in Korea and Canada in Malta in Singapore and in China and and we serve Are Three million users in over thirty countries around the world so Be Close for while to a a certain countries where we've reopened up because you know we've taken precautions when it comes to regulation So in general. We're taking if you look at southeast. Asia is one of our big biggest markets. I think in general this market street. We're always looking to do new partnerships and and explorer Newton's work in the states with another traded in the US to access do next. Is there a way around rather than because of too hot too hot books four. US Traders Margin trading is closed unfortunately But it as soon as regulation comes up we will definitely Be adding that feature. I know it's one of the most popular features it's wild to because in the the US trade revenues of anything really look shares bonds commodities. I let us leverage and a great deal of leverage. Why would we see this space to acids assist me? Anything different markets market. I just I understand whether to shut that down. Everything else has gone so melting Rainsy Saga Dick Yasu research on God. So what would you and exciting things coming up for so get the Myo is a centralized wise exchange but we are going to be launching or new blockchain at the end of this year. That will also be fuelling or decentralized exchange so one of the common misconceptions exceptions that we see in the industry is that people feel like centralized exchanges are trying to keep their funds and that can be further from the truth because any eh quality exchange would rather you keep your funds in your own wallet because actually it provides us with more risk in more liability so we always he's encouraged users to keep Funds Safe and so our blockchain the real innovation is that there's going to be standard wallet. Let so you know the typical wallet just like you see when you keep your bic. BTC You know any other cryptocurrency but we're also creating a vault account account revolt wallet and in this Wallet you're going to be able to revoke transactions transactions unless you sort of slow going but he's like cozy issues when people buy something and it's like how do we get around that. Okay okay so a very very great question We obviously recommend that when you trade a revolt account you trade to your standard account from the standard janitor count you will then trade with other people is we'll be written in the tax. Id Revoke -able transaction So people will know that this transaction can be revoked. Vote but why is this important of the Volta Count is important because you can keep your funds safe if hackers come in and steal your funds uh-huh or if you are a little forgetful and you forget your private key as long as you've signed up with a gate chain and put a password and stuff like that you're going to be able to revoke those transactions. You're going to be able to retrieve those so we are solving a huge industry problem. Well that's really exciting. I mean and everything else. We've spoken pretty cool. That's really really exciting to give us That safety that feeling of confidence around there are digital asset amateur. Able it really takes away. A lot of the power of the packers have so Willed on

It's zoom in. You cannot argue with that love the people everybody doing all sorts of things told you about. Hr what you guys are doing We should push from AIDS into Australia. Goes you've been around for a long time business. So what's the draw Australia. Australia's beautiful market lots of amazing people. And I think a AW. I've always held high opinion of Australians for sure but it's a great market a lot of good people and people like to trade and that's what we're all about opening up the financial the markets for everybody to be able to trade in excess of. What took you say buddy long? Well we always. We've always been interested in the Australian market. No doubt I suppose that regulatory and budgetary concerns. But we're here in Very happy by the pleasure to have you here. We look for to say what you put into the space. So tell me about the training. I mean you know you recently reporter digital assets into the space as well So what have you got for a crypto sample. I know you've got equities bonds commodity stocks all that sort of stuff full suite of of Package of Trion a lot of great margin project so I love the Great Magic Products Because Waste Traders Lot wrought. But what are you doing. The child asset spice so eternal Toro is a social trading network And there's over two thousand different assets that you can trade on and that's anything from currencies commodities et theakston indexes stocks And of course crypto so That's the main idea. Is that just to allow everybody to have that freedom and as as you'll notice it's a very user friendly platforms as soon as you download the APP or go to dot com. It'd be able to to just see how easy it is to open an account and opened a trade and to see and copy other other people and that's really for us. That's the foundation. Well that's the interesting thing about Ataur was can I mean those are the inventors. You possibly could be that social trading writing aspects. How does it work tell us about how that social trading following copying have that system works as a ranking competition? How does a whole will follow may work? Yeah so the best way to do is just to experience it right. You go costs try it out. Is that the way to think about it is. I can facebook for finance where everybody who opens an account automatically uploaded picture you can see their portfolio. What are what are they holding obviously in percentage terms the amount and if money but you can see what are they trading on when they opened a position when they close the position and their stats? Right you can see their stats and their risk score the wrist. Everybody's risk risks you over from one to ten. You can see how risky they are And then you can see their stats. How consistent they are basically a traitor? You can just allocate money to them. Say a thousand one dollars thousand dollars whatever you like And then that money will automatically mirror whatever they're doing in their portfolio. How does that work from the tribes perspective? I mean obviously take those out there. I mean I'm sure the students and you know probably falls in wall showing her they actually are. But how does it work for the try to benefit so first level If anybody wants to amass large following tomorrow they do need to show their real name DOC. It's really good to hear. And they do need to have a significant amount of capital from their own money in order to In order to rise up the ranks the as the system is called popular investor program. Okay where anybody who wants to a massive following is going through tears so you start out at the lower tier you can have Up to a certain amount of assets under management and then once we see that they are performing okay okay and that they're hearing to the community standard Then they can rate rise up the ranks in the top. The top tier is the elite traders. At that point they're already making a percentage of of the total assets under management so two percent on an annual basis are they can make directly as reward being. How's it worth a Torah and you'll just sir BICYC- money off? The transactions of the Bronco were broker. We have the spread fees. There's no Fees for opening an account or anything like that. It's it's just when you make a trade you're paying you're paying a spread commission on the trade and When your copy trading it's the same additional fees for copying anybody? It's just the system suspense is that does it go across the Bitcoin as well as it does to stocks cause if I tried US equities and other platforms on piling in on paying Out I'm not gonNA become quite expensive when it comes to scaling out to manage you're risking your position because you've got to have two or three different positions with two or three different sets of commission Thomas to the age of your introductions how does that work because justice spread or is the phase on trading certain markets like the US equity market for different depending. On what your trading obviously trying to make it as transparent it's possible we also introduced in some region the free stocks with Zero Commissions. And we've seen that just after we did that. Charles Schwab did the same thing wrong. We're we're cutting a trend in the market here but you can always go to the agency exactly what it is and then As far as if there is any kind of rollover or something like that you'll be able to see very clearly on the opposition itself Or even dividends or you know if you're if you're getting money for holding a physician you'll see it right there on the position it's always transparent. I look when it comes to back to talk about Australia and businesses doing now. It's a it's a global business now. It's huge but how many staff have you guys go around the world. I'm not entirely sure sure I know that are Australia. Is relatively new one of our our players our Soma he's been he's been in He Toro for years already in a very good a friend of mine and We send them over there and of course the managing director Robert is an amazing guy So I'm very confident that they'll be able to that'd be able to introduce And scale the region in the proper way to help more and more people Trade how long have you been in this four. I mean I've I've seen the ADS coming up some amazing using odds by the way well done. How long have you been getting off? They they know what they're doing. Absolutely nailed it okay. How long have you been driving? And how's it going. Traction was a new player in the saint. Obviously a lot of power a very strong brand I an. Hr is a new you concept to what we have currently in Australia. It doesn't exist in that sense. The following of people in that sense right neither copy traffic. So I've I've known has been around for a long time but not in a strong trading itself is relatively new. It's something that was born inside of e Touro Justice away of us. Listening to user feedback to the first implementation of property trading was actually a chatroom. O Our our customers came to us and said Hey I wanNA talk to other traders dip and you know that was like two thousand ten. Two thousand eleven tantrums were popular back then and we just put one right inside the platform and we saw people you know. Interacting with each other the next level was obviously you have people saying hey I just bought apple stock went up and people. Hey I wanted verify that is he telling the because everyone's obviously post moves haunt tried as plenty of exactly anybody can say anything to chat room right so At the at the moment we did that we built a separate website. The open book don't use for Tracking People's Trades AIDS and then you can see exactly what their trading their portfolio and their stats and everything like that and then obviously the next step in the evolution is. Hey that guy's doing really well will be him so. This copy trading is not something that was boring boardroom. Rather it's an evolution of some of social media India which is all around us and something that is step by step by step and then obviously two thousand fourteen. We put it together the open book and the platform and we put it all into one. Mobile trading was getting really popular then and we said okay single experience of Torah dot com or download the APP on Android or Apple. You'll get that same looking feel and you can log into the same account in multiple devices just makes it easier. It's handy to monitor your position to move stops all do it for my arbitrating super. Because you're good you're fine with you all the time that's right. It's dangerous dangerous man dealing with what you're saying I mean how's how's the uptake going in Australia. Sifi there is. There is a danger of over trading. No doubt for me you know. I'M GONNA be by the computer when I'm doing my. I'm always going to be checking the market cajal phone. See what the prices are doing and see what's moving. What's not Many things that I think that for everyday person. If you're if you're endangering over trading the best way to take care of it and the deal with that is diversification. You've got hundreds of different positions. It's okay if you tweak one or two of them every okay that's fine right. The problem with over trading is if you're all in on one thing then you're paying huge commissions and others your emotional. Yeah exactly but if you've got hundreds of different trades it's okay you can take your time. Say Okay I like that position the me add to it or let me see. I don't like that one subtract from it And then you don't. You're not in in that position of over trading

"Number of people how to pronounce the name and I was wearing my cap which has sort of a phonetic guide to saying this this this this name B. U. T. T. G. I. E. G.. I think most people look at that in the US and go. I'm not even going to try to pronounce that that is an unpronounceable set of letters. So so very early on the campaign it was boot edge edge and I have a cap that says that so people know. Give me the thumbs up and say hey you know love that Cetera. Well I get the feeling in talking to people here in Malta that there was a little bit of liberty taken in simplifying the pronunciation pronunciation of the name to boot edge. If you say it quickly Buddha judge you you get pretty close but the people that I've asked here how you you would pronounce that fairly common name here in Malta. They say something that sounds to me like Buddha judge but `age and that the last syllable is more like J I g footage and I think I heard Anderson Cooper pronouncing it that that way and I thought well Anderson That's wrong it's boot edge. It's not big but I have a feeling that Anderson and some others that I've heard pronounce. It must've gotten a little bit of a more detailed guidance. In the Maltese way to say Pete's name and and that's that's how it comes across i. I'm perfectly happy saying Buddha Jr and I think that's how most of most of us in the US are going to be saying it and if his improbable Adventure from being three seven year.

"I've been talking about the technology and whether or not technology enables us to Just keep travelling even though We're getting older. I'm getting advancing age of you. So so all that's been talked about. You don't have talked about the pick. Although I interested in your desire to have apple pay your watch and your phone told me about that. Why did that seem like good? I think he'd know why it is. I mean just because it's just so much safer I never have to let my car and onto my hand never even have to reveal where my car is stashed. Because I I just do that. Click on my watch and then I can pay apple pay. So it's absolutely absolutely fabulous. It makes me feel much more secure and We're not messing around with money. We're not opening wallets and counting out our money and But I have to say it feels me at least the places we've gone to here. It's very very safe Well and back home. You weren't that interested in it. I think you thought it'd be more trouble for Rabi just because you feel safer going to whole foods in Cambridge than you do some random restaurant in Malta. Oh absolutely really. Do you think that you'll use it when you get back home. Just because you've learned how to navigate it here sure I mean because I'll use it enough that I get used to it so it's not any convenience or here it's kind of a luxury just part of my my safety issues. What's your sense of what we've used it at a restaurant people's feeling they see a lot of people pulling out there apple watches paying that way or that? It's something that's rare well. I think it's more rare. Usually you'd have to point out to where it is on the little machine and I just know the location. I don't really know what it looks like the little icon but But everyone has the exact same machine machine to the table. We're bringing to the table. That's exactly the same they want and they would use that same machine to process of physical card right if we have the going this way and you don't have to have a watch. You could do the same thing holding iphone to the screen. But I think it's easier not to have to pull out the iphone either. If we tell them how much typically went on ahead of time before they run it then we don't even have to sign fine. Yeah that's what it was because it seemed like sometimes you signed it sometimes. Don't because if you have to sign then you have a chance to put the tip on and in total but what if I just say put a six dollar tip on her six year old or whatever then Yeah then you don't even have to sign so that was really nice right. Well what did you make Valetta. We spent all day in the letter. Full it's an interesting city. I mean it's I like the narrow streets reads and the really old buildings and kind of odd we've been no sidewalks you can't even call it cobblestone or whatever it's just just like kind of a mess but And the people seem nice. Everyone seems very friendly and it doesn't. There's not a lot of people here. It doesn't feel like I'm sure it's just packed hacked the summer and I don't like the rain that much but Yeah new I I'd like it. I'd like to come back again when it's a little bit warmer and see there's a lot of things we haven't seen I mean it's can't see much in a day really get a little feel for if you want to come back at it. I like it better than I thought I would. I just didn't think the pictures and stuff. It looked interesting. It's From the moment we flew in and you fly over these huge walls to get in. It's really kind of magical. It's really densely populated Eh. Like you say. The streets are narrow and the cars are tiny. I mean you don't soon occurs here where all the people I mean you know I mean if all all the people and all these houses around us for on the street it would seem very busy but we walk up the street to arrested or something we may be past five people and yet. It's not that it's not safe. They're not it's not. That's not why they're not out. I just I mean it's the time of the year and they're all big winter coats on their cold This is really cool for them. But I kind of call to so and I. You know their houses or anything like where we're staying it's very minimal and it's it's lovely but it's It's a house made for warm weather. Yeah and so. We feel cold and I've got they do to. They really feel cold. They're not used to call. Who is the woman at the pizza place? She said. Oh this cold with I think she was from Serbia Abia Serbia really cool back and it could be ten or something but I think she's talking Celsius or ten or something. So yeah I I don't even know how cold it was because I was wasn't Fahrenheit so I I don't know the the multiple enough to immediately. There are a lot of people who aren't Maltese. They haven't grown here. People aren't that we've been meeting. Yes the old people are older people already a taxi driver. I in the man that button shop or whatever ribbons and buttons and things. He was from here but yeah I'm surprised applies to all to see where the people from that really. Great Coffee Shop for from Ukraine Ukraine's then then we ran into someone. They were from Ukraine. Okay Yeah and then Serbia and take the waiter last night at the first place we had he. He was from another country. I can't remember what it was though and the young guys that we're GONNA fire the cabin one. Cannon was from Germany and one was Italian eighteen so further cannon new his cute uniform But Yeah it's the most of the people in the restaurants Even if the owner have come here to make their fortune from some of the stories we heard from taxi. Driver coming in is is after the war it was the reverse because there's been so much bombing reduced to rubble and people were leaving just because they had to find work somewhere somewhere else. Yeah and I don't think there is enough food or housing or anything so the government actually paid them to go to different places. We're thinking that maybe maybe Pete's father that's maybe why he went to America and he ended up staying but our taxi drivers parents. I think came back because is he was born in England he was. They came back when he was too right. Yeah yeah so I suspected what you see all these people that move here start restaurants and there's one thing named island of Gozo we haven't been so we've had enough of a taste here to come back at some point. Yeah we haven't really found the artists we've just you know we've seen just regular stores stores of clothes and shoes and tourists chunk but yeah I feel like that. We really haven't seen the magic of this place in terms of what people have created besides the art or the architect to Mavis race. This is a little jewel. Yeah suburban did you tell him that he designed to bed frame and Shell and even the chairs that we were sitting in and then had the made and Lot of metal all work and Would it just. It's really very minimal. But very pleasing and nice prints the walls. It's spotlessly clean to be a nicer place to state has a very funky door entry system though scary really I could never get it on my own heard out of a locked box and then you press the current against this doorknob and you hear a click and then you can turn the doorknob enough because otherwise it just spins ahead. I think he's to the first time we left. We weren't sure we'd ever get back in well all these things I mean. This sounds like this is all like the top of the line technology. All of this stuff looks like it's about to fall apart and it looks like something from the sixteen hundred. It's the doors themselves or certainly from the scene even all these knobs nothing. Nothing looks really up to date. But that's a little unnerving and of course.

"Is I think d'orleans finished watching Jack Jack Ryan or Jack Reach F- I forget what his name is but anyway I brought along a fire TV stick which is the way that you can watch a prime TV on smart television. There is a smart television here. It took quite a while to get hooked up. I neglected to have fresh AAA batteries in the clicker that came with it. So we guest some of those today I had a lot of trouble getting Amazon Password to work but then when I switched to a different. HDMI slot in the back of the TV. It worked quite well. Didn't seem to be able to get net flicks to work but all of the Amazon prime programs including Jack Ryan came through just fine. This is a very small. I put it in a baggy. It's just this tiny little stick that goes into the back of the TV and there's a plug you plug into an Outlet and that enables the television to connect with the Internet and find dollar Amazon stuff and sometimes for relaxing after a day of the tourist. That's that's a pretty handy thing to have and that that worked pretty well I I think that with all of these tools I I've aware era of a downside which you know it's the other side of the coin I remember traveling in the past that You leave the country. Go to France or you go to Ecuador and just by not being in touch with the home country It opens winds up a sense of the adventure of being away and on this trip. Because everything's working so well and I can just text at a photo of what I'm having for lunch and get a text from him I love that and it adds a dimension to travel because personalizes it. I'm sort of sharing it as I go. You get a nice text for my sister tonight thanking me for doing the morning journal report keeping everybody up to date on what's happening but I'm losing a little bit of that off into the void sense of travel which I remember from when I before I had all of this technology that was connecting getting me and I think I'm certainly willing to live with that. And part of it's my new discipline to try to not be looking my iphone as much especially when I'm in the presence of another human. That's sort of my latest practice but all in all I think it's it's to the good and the other thing is I i. You know I'm in my seventieth year darlings seven years younger than I am but I think we both have a feeling that to head off when our memories and always it was ten or fifteen or twenty years ago When do we get too old to be taking trips? Like this totally on our own. Own as opposed to being part of a group where all these itinerary decisions transfers are made by professionals. Nothing really too bad can happen to you if you're waddling along with a group of other people in in that kind of a safe group environment and you know frankly. I've just not ready for that. I hope I can stay alert. And that the advances in take continue so that she and I can travel on our own Well into the future and so far. Knock on Wood I'd say that that seems to be the case. I my confidence in our ability to navigate At least from Boston to Malta. The first part of our trip is is pretty high. I hope I can report that much confidence when we get back on December twentieth. Of course we have kindles. I'm I'm on the Kindle Oasis Charleena's on the paperweight not really sold on it yet. She misses her original oasis Because she misses those physical page buttons I I brought a fire. HDA that I haven't used yet Actually on the flight from London to Malta. I got a paper copy of the times and the Guardian for that three three hour flight and I really enjoyed kind of awkward to read a newspaper. That big when you're in the middle seat on a plane but I enjoyed the writing and I read about a new podcast. Checkout called Red Square and I read a term called the podcast verse referring. To in the world of PODCASTS. I've tended to use potus fear in in my rendering of that and so So so far. I haven't needed that or just haven't used it because there's been lots of other things going on. I don't know if you can hear the rain. That's he's been coming in waves tonight and it's falling on the roof of my little balcony. Alcove here that I'm recording. Let's see if Darlene arleen would like to join us and we can talk a little bit about her impressions of our day in Valetta..

I'm looking at Republic Street which is a main thoroughfare. We're kind of at the end of it and if you walk down take a right out our door. It goes all the way up through town climbs. Pretty Pretty Big Hill and lots of restaurants and shops and and we ended up in a very good place for this very affordable AIRBNB AIRBNB and.

That's a good economy for saving electricity city. it's about fifty five degrees tonight. It's raining and windy. You may hear when makes a nice sound in these windows in the little balcony balcony ports that I'm sitting on and at night that's been pretty restful For sleepy except for the fact that it was most of the night Anticipating anticipating what we were going to be doing here in Malta. Before we leave for Germany tomorrow We just got back from a Nice Pizza Supper and and I'm going to Thursday night so I'll get the show put together so that Tomorrow Friday I'll be able to not be worrying about it. I know that it's making its way over the Internet to wherever you are what I am going to do for. This episode is divide. Ride the what you hear in three parts of I. I've had a lot of chance to compare travel technology on this trip with the last time early in and I were on on a major trip About ten years ago Well five years ago in Ecuador maybe ten fifteen years ago. We had a number of trips to France ads. And so in that you know in the last five to ten years I've noticed some real differences and mainly improvements in and technology that you use when I travel so I thought just talk about some of the specifics of that case you're planning a trip Maybe I'll have some ideas that would help you to navigate your version of traveling in the age of lots of technology to help out there Lena's in the other room watching Jack reacher on the smart TV. That came into place. And I've got her hooked up with Air Pods so she's she's listening every once in a while. She makes as a scared noise. Because somebody's about to shoot Jack but Otherwise I'm able to record without listening to the TV so she'll join me about fifteen minutes talk about her impressions of our day Malta. And then I'm going to end with What I thought was going to be a big part of this trip namely learning possibly about Mayor Pete's family his father emigrated from Malta at the age of twenty and I made some attempts to connect with that family? History They really didn't pan out much. But I will have some thoughts on that before I sign off hopefully in time to get a good night's sleep so the little bumper music do do do do Technology the benefits of travel technology. See that I took advantage of started when I was putting the trip together and over the past few months we put the pieces of it Together and I was mainly working on it online something like orbits as an example That has been around for quite a while now and I found it a very useful way to make tickets for our flight from Malta to Munich. which is what we'll be doing tomorrow? Found a really great rate one hundred twenty dollars and it Pretty pretty simple and also there was an APP that I could use or on the IPHONE. That was handy to just double check the the flights and all of that. I did run into a challenge because as we get closer to the trip I realized that I was having US alive arrive. Theun fu-san two hour train ride from Munich at about ten o'clock tomorrow night and I. I've made a rule that I don't like arriving in new cities after dark. It's disorienting any way to do it in. The dark is not optimal so I was trying to find a flight out of here in Malta earlier and there was one at eleven thirty would have been just great getting in around one thirty two Munich but it was going to add about a thousand dollars to the the price of the trip that I had booked online at such a good deal I did call Orbits to figure out how this might work and I got a lot of really great Phone help from them in which they encouraged me just to check the price of that flight. Ah to Munich to see if the price drops and which number to call from Malta. So that I'd be able to connect with orbits and I did that this morning. And we kind of worked out the understanding that it just wasn't going to work out but both in booking a good flight and then also having orbits as My mediator or a resource for adjusting itinerary. I found it to be really successful. Expedient was also helpful although I did have a probably did not as good an experience with expedia that was how we booked a room at hotel. DASS Rubas all in food. That's where our niece Louis and Jamie are going to be married on Saturday Wonderful looking place and Just looks looks like a great stay. After that two hour train ride from Munich but there I realized that I had us Leaving leaving the hotel at four. AM following the wedding in order to catch a plane to Athens so that we could go visit a friend of mine the increase so when I realized that it was a late enough so that it looked like it was going to incur some kind of a penalty but I called the hotel and explain the situation. They said you know. It's okay with us if you want to stay three nights here instead of four but you will have to have expedia make that change. Because of the way EXPEDIA was connected to the hotel they needed to Have Expedient initiated. I said okay. I'll do that called. expedia waited quite a while to get a hold of somebody and the expedia Rep Contacted the hotel and basically we. It was a perfect loop that at that point. The hotel expedia was saying that they couldn't change the reservation. And even though the hotel was in favor of it There was just no way to do it. So with the REP on the phone. He walked through cancelling the original reservation. Assuring assuring me that if I immediately re booked for three nights it would be okay. It would cost that much more That was a little nerve wracking because they thought great. If I cancel this reservation at the place where Living Jamie or staying right near the wedding and then we can't get there then that would be a major fail. It all turned out okay but I found that link between EXPEDIA and the hotel to be a little problematic. They the the hand off. There just didn't seem to be very smooth especially when you you were trying to change something just checking to make sure that I phone is still recording. This looks it's like we're good. The other category of technology which I found really useful and advanced compared to last time I was travelling are the number of APPs available on the iphone. The best example of that was when I was planning our trip to from Boston to Heathrow the first night and then changing Air Malta. I found out that there was an APP that he throw has just the airport. And I downloaded loaded to my iphone and then it was on on my watch and it generated notifications for When we were about to Need to pitch to the gate for Air Malta. And what happened. That was quite pleasing was darling was really worried that We work going to find the gate soon enough to get to it in time. We were in a coffee shop. A Preta Maget in terminal four at Heathrow and there was a board sort of outside the coffee.

"And focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter allegations nations high level corruption have convulsed Mediterranean island state of Molten and shot the rest of Europe public anger has unleashed by dramatic recent developments in the investigation Gatien into the killing of the investigative journalists. Daphne Caruana Galaxia a car-bomb attack in October twenty. Seventeen he with me to explain what's going on adjusting Kumbo and Michael Pill Joe. You know multi very well you have lots of family there and you were there recently to report on the recent events in your familiar. Elia with the case of Daphne Caruana Galaxia. Can you tell us a bit about her. And what. She was investigating at the time of her killing. Daphne was described as one one of motors most important visible and famous journalist at the time if a death at the age of fifty three she ran a popular blog and it was called running commentary trey which investigated allegations of corruption and other criminal wrongdoing which allegedly ran to the highest levels of government and business. And she did so without outfielder favor and she upset a lot of people at the time of her death she had dozens of libel cases against her and her family was subjected to threats quite quite frequently due to reporting now in October twenty seven taint. She was just minutes away from her home in molter she was driving when a bomb exploded in her car. Since then molter has been rocked by allegations of who ordered and who undertook the assassination months before her death she had been investigating a company called seventeen black which she alleged had links to Maltese politicians. She she was not able to identify the owner of this mysterious company but after her murder leaked emails showed that seventeen black was due to make payments to people very close to the prime minister of Mortar Joseph. Muscat and that was his chief aide case Shembe and Conrad Mitzi who was the energy minister at the time lime but more importantly the investigation showed that seventeen black was owned by one of Malta's most prominent businessman named Jurgen Finnick now before a desk S.. She was trying to find out who owned this company. who owns seventeen back just three weeks ago? Jurgen Finnick was charged with effectively masterminding. Being the murder of Daphne. So that's where we are at the moment with the investigation killing caused shock and revulsion and horror across Europe and obviously in multi-rate itself but the investigation sort of run into the ground. A little bit didn't it and the public reaction in multiple is clearly one of anger but perhaps not quite the sort of uprising that we've seen in recent weeks. Yes for almost two years I would say the investigation was sluggish. There wasn't a lot going on in the summer. There were three men arrested and charged with planting and detonating the Kabul but the family had previously been making allegations that this went a lot further that this was a contract trek killing and that there were people involved higher up in government and business who connected to the assassination of Daphne but nothing was moving up until the middle of November. When taxi driver was caught at the airport a sniffer dog on covered cashew? Lada cash bag and he was arrested and he was later identified. Ah allegedly became the middleman in the case in in return for impunity for a pardon he said he would tell all about what was going on on. And what happened. With the killing of Daphne and at that point he implicated case who was prime minister chief aide and also the chief chief businessman Jurgen Finnick in the killing. He accused Monday both denied involvement but once those two allegations came out. The family felt vindicated and people started to wake up to what was going on now that there was evidence given by this middleman and I think the turning point really was at the papers in Malta. The main newspapers who had been sitting sitting on the fence in regards to the case went sort of backing the family started to take an opinion that there was a cover-up pay. We needed to know what was going on. I think that really energized the population and got people who wouldn't ordinarily be out in the streets through fear of repercussions or because it is a very small island. People don't want to be seen to be doing things which might lead to repercussions out on the streets. I mean you know multi very well and as you said it is a very small place only a few hundred thousand people. The smallest member state of to what extent does size. He's matter here. Do you think it's conditioned the culture has made a place that tolerates perhaps cronyism and the settling of schools so the trading of favors. I think one thing you can say about living in a small places that everybody's involved everybody seems to know everybody and everybody seems to know everybody's business and that might lead to a culture of complicity in some senses. Because if he puts your head above the parapet. You're exposing yourself from WHO I I spoke to on the street. Certainly in the aftermath of the resignation of the announced intended resignation of Joseph Moskow said they feared repercussions if they spoke out. But but what I think happened with the testimony of this middleman is that it unleashed and energize the population and once the newspapers started doing it a Torius to say it's time to get off the fence. Basically and to take a stand on this people felt emboldened to come out onto the streets and what we saw. was that these remarkable scenes in the streets of a letter. This very elegant European capital of culture people walking down the streets I'm talking about pension is holding signs saying killer. Government Mafia justice. Daphne was right. They were angry and they were angry that there was a cover up so I think this was a really pivotal moment. In terms of Maltese society. Eighteen terms of them getting on the streets and expressing themselves. Michael What can you tell us about the businessman Yoga in Phoenix and his ties with the upper echelons of movies politics. Well Yoga fanatic as break high profile businessman in Malta and he involved in businesses from property. You too energy and indeed was involved in the joint venture which had an international dimension to run a power station in this government awarded contract and Ziemens that German company was also involved in this joint venture and as a result of what's happened and the allegations that have been made against him. He stood down from is corporate roles and indeed was intercepted by authorities while trying to hit away from the island in his luxury yacht. So it's been a rather dramatic fall from grace from Mr fanatic in terms of the connections with people in high levels of governments is joe mentioned earlier. A lot of attention is focusing on a Dubai company named seventeen black lack belong to Mr fanatic. And it's alleged Roy. TSA's did a very deep investigation on this that this company was expected to make payments. MM STU company set up in Panama by two senior government officials. Keep Shembe the prime minister's chief of staff and Conrad Mitzi a former tourism and peniche administer the officials involved of all denied wrongdoing. But clearly. That relationship hasn't been fully explained and the officials officials Mr Shimbun. and Mr Mitzi have boasted down from that government coasts. So there's a lot still needs to be fully understood about the connections here in the relationships. Here Michael Molterer is only the latest in a number of EU states to come under the glare of scrutiny over backsliding sliding on the rule of law can you just put it in that broader European context such going on in Europe will. This is a really interesting case that relates to this anxiety there is that the EU all of his proclamations about the values it holds and espouses indeed spreads around the world and human rights transparency furnaces have full that maybe it's routing from within so a lot of the attention has focused on the autocratic creep in countries such as Hungary agree on Poland and governments capturing institutions and so forth and oversee. Pick two or van. The Hungarian leader has been very outspoken in in creating more equal the so-called illiberal democracy but multi is slightly different and most people and in some ways we'll revealing case in the recent recent. The Bat is that Joseph Scott. The Prime Minister of Malta has not taken the belligerent approach of the leaders of Hungary and Poland often have to criticism. He's being being a very good European very cooperative. In summit some has good relationships with other leaders and home has hailed failed reforms that government is made in areas such as same-sex partnerships which is seen as very progressive so in a way the criticism is is and campaign is against what is happening in Malta. Will they would say. Is that Mr Lescot by presenting himself in this way has got a bit of a free pass when that should have been in a lot more scrutiny of him at a European level and it's only now with the new commission headed by a sea level and the lion and what's been happening in Malta that starting to slightly stronger language from Brussels about the concern that the situation in Malta is closing but still no tangible substantial action from Brussels. Let's hair clip from Sophie. Infield head of a European Parliament delegation dispatched to Molter to review the rule of law on the island last week. We have serious concerns about Mr Moss. Scott staying in office we have. Let's say concerns about the integrity of the murder investigation Of course everybody is innocent until proven guilty but there are just in the period the next forty days are going to be crucial for murder investigation. And we don't want any risk or even a perceived risk which is just a serious that the investigation may be compromised in any way there has to be absolute absolute confidence in the process. And I think when he is in office that confidence is not there. Michael if the European Commission in has treated the Maltese case with kid gloves do you think the European Parliament might actually weighed in and possibly even initiate disciplinary proceedings. seatings against Valetta. That's good question and suddenly. The parliament has been activist on this. Although it's not clear that that's going to move forward straight away and obviously chosen. Lescot said he will stand down as prime minister in January people overseas of waiting and seeing to an extent. I mean there's a bigger problem here which oversee goes well beyond the scope of what we're talking about about which is the EU disciplinary procedures over the rule of law which have already been launched in the cases of Hungary and Poland. They don't really work very well because they need unanimity. So so if you're targeted as a country by one of these as long as you've got at least one ally to watch your back you will never face any sanctions Joe. What's quite extraordinary in the Maltese? He's case is the powers the direct powers that the prime minister the has over the judicial process. I mean that is really quite unusual in the European context. Yes it is. And it's the source of a lot of concern within the Council of Europe. They've called for reforms in the Maltese constitution. Basically eighty prime minister has powers unlike most countries he can appoint the head of the judiciary he can appoint judges. He can point the police commissioner and of course that kind of system opens up to claims of lack of impartiality by the judiciary and also the police commissioners and political interference. And I think this really drives to the heart of the concerns are currently that the longer that messed Mosca stays on an office that there is a risk of political olitical interference in this investigation and indeed the public inquiry that has been launched so until there is a complete separation of powers in Valetta in multiple thing. I don't I think this problem is going to go away in that. Brussels needs to address this fundamental issue with the way the country's run JOE's of Mosca has said he will stand down in January. Very do you think he will be forced out before then by public pressure well. I'm not sure it's going to be public pressure. I think what will happen is that Brussels is going to have to step up up to the plate to apply more pressure on Valetta on Mr Moss. Got To step down immediately. What we've seen over the past week is no let up in protest protests from the streets? In fact it's intensified. We saw one of the biggest protest ever in front of Castille. which is the Prime Minister's office just a few days ago but the protesters are also becoming coming more targeted on Monday? There was the extraordinary scenes. Were dozens of protesters launched sitting in the Prime Minister's office and they were locked walked in there and journalists were locked out. I can see that The people love fairly angry about what's going on I don't see any letup in the protests but I think what Mr Muscat needs to consider now is that while the world's attention maybe unfilitered it is also turning to Brussels and bustles response to this growing in crisis which is social political and it's constitutional. How long can Brussels afford not to do anything about this? Other world is watching on Thursday and Friday of this tweak. Mr Mascot is expected to attend European summit in Brussels the other leaders at the blocks of that could be pretty uncomfortable.

Glitzy is murder has traumatized molter and dominated. The tiny country's politics takes for more than two years. It was well known that she had enemies at the time of her death. She was facing at least forty two lawsuits for libel her. The home had been targeted by arsonists and a succession of pet dogs poisoned stabbed or shot.
