So how can you say. I'm crazy crazy. Everybody's crazy crazy driving me crazy. Stick me in institutions. Said was the only solution to protect me for my worst enemy myself. Yeah that's a great role Now it's like you know a lot of times people they just keep doing the same thing over and over and they just expecting different results. You know it's like it's just go through a cycle you know and it's like okay here we go again you do it. And maybe things will be different and non. They end up the same result. It cycle you end up blaming somebody else or look at me. I did everything you told me to do. Or or try to walker or a line and then fell off a fucking. Why what's the point in trying to get excited psycho cycle man. You know like you know it's like a psychopath. You're you're doing what everyone tells you to do. Because that's the way it has to be done. You doing things the way the society tells you to do because that's the only way to fit in. That's the only way to be but you know what what if it doesn't fit you. You know what if what you keep on doing isn't showing the results that everyone else is saying is going to happen and it starts messing with. You starts messing with your mind. Starts messing with your body starts messing with your friendships. It starts messing with. Your family. Starts messing with your money you know. Where are you at your the people around or making you insane. Because it's not working for you or or rather in know that's definitely one way to look at it but also the country has at some point. You're responsible for your own actions and your own behaviors. At some point. You have to learn that you have to take that leap you have to grow and be able to Take control your life. I totally understand that. Maybe he didn't have the tools and the developmental support. Not maybe you were in an abusive family abusive relationships or whatever. The situation is i totally get it. I mean i know plenty of people to see plenty of people in your cycle to well. I know people in my experience where yes. They came from abusive Families and maybe they dropped out in junior high or whatever it is and they didn't have those tools and support networks at all and you talk to them now. They're stuck in junior high. Mander mentality is totally stuck in. Junior is just kind of say. Hi doing and you just move on. But at some point dot person if they're able to wake up from where they're at and realized that he. I need to do something today to grow and improve myself or to break. That cycle cyclic. Behavioral situation. We're talking about here in. That's the first man. Because if you're too far gone then you're basically clinically insane right. You know that's where we're talking about In terms of doing the same thing expecting different results. That's the definition of of insanity. But we have folks that that we all grew up with There at that border where they're using this as a crutch or an excuse to say You know a do all these great deans. And i'm still a failure.

What Next Year's Redrawing Of Voting Districts May Look Like

"Year year is is a a once once in in a decade opportunity for all 50 states to redraw the lines of state and congressional voting District's In most places. State lawmakers are in charge of drawing those maps. So both parties poured money into state legislative races this year, and the result was a major disappointment to Democrats. Republicans won in almost all the states that will be key to redistricting. We've got three reporters with us to talk about what these fights will look like in different parts of the country. Ashley Lopez from member Station Kut in Austin, Texas, Dirk Vander Hart from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland and Steve Harrison of member station W F A in Charlotte, North Carolina. Good to have you all here? Hey, Ari. Hi, sorry. Actually, let's start with you in Texas. The state's getting more diverse, and it's one of many places where Democrats had hoped to take over the house and didn't what happened there. Yes, so those hopes were totally dashed. Democrats are hoping to gain a majority in the Texas house. You know, at least one chamber so they could have a seat at the table this time around because they've been completely shut out for decades, but much like every other state that Democrats were hoping to flip a chamber in they were unsuccessful. In Texas, they had their sights set on flipping nine seats. That were quite frankly, just out of reach for them, largely because those districts were drawn to favor Republicans by Republicans 10 years ago. So in case you wondered if, like redistricting was important. This is a good example. Why So Republican lawmakers are again completely in charge of the process, You know, from top to bottom and because of the U. S Supreme Court decision recently that said that states can gerrymander for partisan Basie's than they really don't have any reason to hold back. That makes it sound like Democrats in Texas have no tools at all. Is there any kind of check or balance on Republican power in the state? Yeah, well, like the last time the courts are really the only check they have right so Even though partisan gerrymandering his legal, which is drawing districts that favor of party over the other, drawing maps that discriminate against people of color is definitely not. That's illegal. And because race and partisanship sometimes go hand in hand, it might be kind of impossible for Republicans. Jerry Mander, based on partisanship without running afoul of racial discrimination laws. So and in fact, Stephanie Swanson with the League of Women voters of Texas, she said that this is actually been a persistent issue in Texas. So in the past 50 years, Texas has been found to have racially discriminated or violated the Voting Rights Act and every redistricting cycle. They could very much still do the same thing on Toe. Stop it. Yes! Oh, Texas has like a pretty bad track record with this and because of so much of Texas is growth in the past few years and decades has been overwhelmingly because of growth among communities of color groups say they're looking to make sure that those political lines draw like retain that political power and population growth that has accumulated over the past few years. All right, let's turn from Texas to Oregon because Republicans next year are going to have total control of 20 state. Legislatures, with Matt making power and Democrats are only going to have total control of seven, but Oregon is one of those seven. So Dirk Vander Hart, What does that mean for redistricting in your state? Well, that's right. Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree on how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process, and actually, in the past half century, the Legislature has failed to pass. They planned much of the time. So that is one reason Republicans were really adamant about hanging on to the secretary of state's office. In this year's election, there would have been at least some path for them to have meaningful influence in redistricting. Instead, though, a progressive Democrat named Show me a Fagan won the seat. So does that mean Republicans are totally frozen out in Oregon? As the Democrats are in Texas? You know for 2021 that absolutely looks like the case Earlier this year, there was an effort to try to establish a nonpartisan redistricting commission that would take control of the process from lawmakers. That's something Republicans were pretty supportive of, but it failed to even get enough signatures to make the ballot. So show me a fake in the new secretary of State has said she would appoint an independent commission to help advise her. We have not seen a lot of what that looks like. All right, let's head east to North Carolina, which has been the site of many high profile gerrymandering cases over the last few years. What things look like now in Charlotte, Steve Harrison. Yes. So I think it's safe to say North Carolina has been one of those bitterly contested states over political Jerry Mannering after Republicans took control here in 2010. It was a North Carolina case. It was heard by the Supreme Court in the summer of 2019, in which the justices said that Jerry Mandarin based on political party was not unconstitutional. And that was a decision that Democrats across the country said was bad for democracy. In North Carolina. There was also litigation and state court that was successful enforced Republicans to redraw legislative and congressional maps before the 2020 election. And with these new maps, Democrats were really hopeful they could win at least one chamber and have a say and drawing the new maps next year. But they had to win in rural and suburban areas. And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps the Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said you were pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. But the state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country, and Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have the possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall. That is Steve Harrison of member station W F A E in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with Ashley Lopez of member station, Kut in Austin, Texas. And Dirk Vander Hart of Oregon. Public Broadcasting in Portland. Thank you all.

And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps that Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said We're pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. The state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country. And Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have. The possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall.

"That Jerry Mander legislative district so that they can choose their voters rather than allowing voters to choose their representatives. Corporate property that the Supreme Court has declared to be persons with Bill of rights protections federal and state statutes that privatized public governance and prohibit democratic limits on the uses of private fortunes. And local governments declared to be property of the state and made unavailable to communities for municipal law making. We live deep within an undemocratic matrix of law that masquerades as a Democratic republic while it legalizes an aristocracy of wealth. The U. S constitution was written by men who came from a uniformly privileged class. Charles Beard argued this point in his book and economic interpretation of the Constitution of the United States. Beard analyzed the economic interests of those who met in secret to overturn the articles of confederation and concluded that the federalists were motivated by economic self interest to establish a form of government. It would protect their wealth against an excess of democracy. As Alexander Hamilton put it, the federalist to replace the articles with the U. S Constitution were not fully aligned with liberating agenda of commoners who risked their lives to throw off the hierarchical chains of Great Britain. Were wealthy men educated in British law with opinions that harmonized with there is aristocratic sentiments. Authors of the U. S Constitution are often called the Founding Fathers cause popular history lumps. The Federalist counter revolutionaries in with the likes of Thomas Paine, with this firebrand writing this against monarchy, nobility and special privilege for the few Inspired the people to demand independence. Popular culture counts. The Federalist is American revolutionaries, no less fervent for liberty and the men whose ideas of leveling the social class system inspired American farmers and day laborers. To pick up their muskets and take on the red coats. This conflict shin in the federalist counter revolutionaries with whose with those whose spirit of 76 is reflected in the Declaration of independence and absent from the U. S Constitution. Is a troubling reminder. The popular history too often preserves false memories. What's the evidence that the federalists intended a Constitution? That weaponize is law to protect the accumulation of property and raise wealth and out of reach of public governance? Well to begin with their own words recorded in Philadelphia and 17 87 by James Madison and Robert Yates. Damningly. That record head was held secret until every delegate to the clandestine conclave had died. And the Constitution they wrote, had been the law of the land for two generations. We have that evidence, and it tells the tale all share in Chapter two. We also have the product of their cleverness to consider the Federalist established a quasi monarchical judiciary. Politically appointed judges wheeled the power to veto any legislation that departs from the federalists original intent to protect wealthy accumulation from Democratic oversight. We have the arguments of the anti federalists who called out the would be American aristocrats for betraying the revolution. If not for them. We would not have the 1st 10 amendments to the Federalist Document. The bill of Rights, which many identifies the soul of the U. S Constitution. More immediate evidence that the original intent of the U. S constitution was to immunize position of honor and property from public regulation could be found in the anti social way. The document is interpreted by the courts. How it operates on society today. My argument. In a nutshell. We're faced with social, political and environmental problems that resist resolution because law empowers a wealthy minority to govern based on priorities, often at odds with the general welfare. Constitution and its interpretation by the courts amounts to an arsenal of weaponized law, able to deliver special privileges to a property in class. Certain legal mechanisms, let those seeking to profit of the public expense block policies they compete with their interests. He's legal doctrines operate by a two step process. First, they removed democratic rights in the public sphere and deposit them in concentrated accumulations of property, the oddity of attaching legal rights to property itself rather than the people. Roared into public consciousness with the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling that affirmed corporate properties personhood and free speech rights. Although the ruling shocked the conscience of average Americans, it was not the first time the court had best with civil rights within inner property Nowhere corporations the first type of property be given legal rights. The second step is for property imbued with rights to deliver those rights is an extra layer of legal privilege to the property owner when civil and human rights are deposited in property that property is placed beyond the authority to people to govern how it is used by its owner. This nullifies the majority's ability to decide directly or through elected representatives. What public policy will be As a result, we aren't allowed to resolve issues of media concerned every community. Even when we understand what needs to be done, we're often blocked. And then he goes through the whole list. Benji.

Here's what to know about Georgia's recount of presidential votes

"Is one of the big stories of this year's election in Georgia. In 2000 and 16 around 4.1 million people voted this year It was around five million votes there are still being counted. Joe Biden is leading. But there's going to be a recount and both Senate races in Georgia will go to a runoff in January. Lauren Grow War Go is the CEO of Fair fight Action. That's a group based in Georgia that advocates for voter rights and participation. She is backing the Democratic candidates running for those Senate seats. And she told me that flipping Georgia has been a goal for a long time. This is not some flash in the pan. We have been building this for the better part of a decade, when Stacey Abrams became minority leader a decade ago, after an undercount in the census and a Republican Jerry Mander, she made history by preventing and denying Republicans a supermajority in the state Legislature by winning four seats drawn for Republicans, and that is really where Georgia State legislative dense began building building building along the way. There's been this whole proliferation and building of excellent Second brown community groups working in the Asian American community, the Latino community. There's a larger demographic change happening in Georgia, and now we're gonna leverage. All of this infrastructure know how advocacy and voter contact to win these January run offs. We feel really, really good, and we're gonna make it happen. I did some coverage of voter registration efforts in the state of Wisconsin. And one thing that came through very clearly in the city of Milwaukee, in particular, was how many people felt That their vote didn't matter, particularly when it came to the black community in that city. Is that something that you and your organization are up against in Georgia? Do you have people who tell you I don't feel like it matters or do you think after 2020? It's gonna be real hard to hear anyone say that anymore. I don't think there's any doubt we have beat Donald Trump by 14,000. That shows that every vote does matter. And that we have to continue our work. There are still hundreds of thousands of Georgians who chose not to vote and we have to continue to do our work as an organization to reach out to voters and meet them where they are and listen to them. We learned this week that Georgia will do a hand recount of all of the ballots cast in this presidential election. There were about five million of them. What are your thoughts on the recount? Look, Trump knows he can't reverse the outcome to this race. This is an organizing tactic to attempt to energize Republican voters for the January runoff. Okay, that's what this is about. This is about their disinformation campaign as a political strategy. And finally, I want to ask you a question that we have been asking many progressive Democrats over the last week or so. Joe Biden is a moderate Democrat after he won the Democratic primary progressives did line up behind him. But there are some real differences in policy between what Joe Biden wants and what progressives want to see in this country. How do you feel about Joe Biden right now being the head of the Democratic Party or progressives going to need to push him? Joe Biden, just one Georgia and Joe Biden is about to have two important colleagues in the U. S senate with him, Jon Ossoff's and Raphael Warnock. And so look to them and their message here. They are out there talking about health care. We're talking about the fact that it is a human tragedy that we're having hospitals close and on the brink of closure in Georgia. This is about people's lives and on Lee Joe Biden with the Democratic Senate have any hope of getting something done for the American people on covert and the economy.

"That is used to allocate seats in the Congress. Among the states, which makes not only who's elected president and senator but who's elected to State House is really critical this year as they will do the redistricting based on the 2020 census. Former Attorney General Eric Holder who is now the head of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. Says there's a lot on the line when people head to the polls this year. Yeah, I mean, I understand I get it. This is an existential election. However you decide that you know you want. This is obviously very president, very important presidential election, But we really have to focus on these down ballot races. We're going to go through a redistricting process in 2021. The people elected this year will be the ones will help draw those lines on the head of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, and we're trying to make sure that the process in 20 One is a fair one and that the lines are drawn not to protect incumbents but to make sure that elections are competitive. And then we end up with representatives at the state level who will represent the interests of the people enough to special interests. And people understand that on a day to day basis you probably impacted by who serves in your state Legislature. Then you are by the president of the United States when you concerned about criminal justice reform, protecting a woman's reproductive rights. Protecting the right to vote. A lot of health care decisions, these air decided, Asai said more in the state legislature than they are in Washington, D. C. So this comes up because the census according the Constitution has to happen every 10 years, and this is one of the 10 year And ironically this time it's with the presidential, which doesn't happen that often. I guess every 20 years that happens more or less. What happened 10 years ago. Well, 10 years ago, we ended up with a process that Princeton University said was the most Jerry Mander redistricting effort of the last half century. Republicans use the power that they got in the 2010 midterms to really draw the lines in a way that favorite them and we had to deal with that, over the course of the last 10 years. What my organization is trying to do is to make sure that we have a fair process one that doesn't favor Democrats want doesn't favor Republicans, one that doesn't Jerry Mander either. Just follow the lines in a fair way I worked with Arnold's fortunate on this effort. You know, I have Ah, pieces out in Missouri trying to protect something that we helped put in place there. Would you say, a nonpartisan we districting commission that will draw the lines to take the power away from self interested politicians and put it in the hands of a beautiful body. Passed by the citizens of Missouri politicians there are now trying to weaken. It didn't hop it, They said. Don't do that. Push back against thes politicians and preserve that neutral, But so you took this just where I wanted to go, which was to say No, You're representing the Democrats on this. Would you be willing to take it out of the political sphere and give it to a bipartisan commission? Or is it more a matter of we want to make sure our Democrats control the state houses? So that we get to Jerry Mander? No, I actually think that the best way the gold standard is to create these nonpartisan commissions they already exists for have existed for some time in Arizona, and in California. We were instrumental in getting them put into Michigan, Missouri, Colorado and Utah. And they will be doing the redistricting next year. I think that's the gold standard. That is the best way to do it. Politicians. Whether you're Democrat or you're a Republican aren't going to try, you know, protected there. Our district's protect their party put it in the hands of these non partisan, these nonpartisan body's That way you'll end up with I think the fairest line drawing and you'll end up with legislatures that arm or beholden to the people as opposed to the special interest, and I think if we have a fair process could be very clear. I think Democrats on progressives will do will do just fine, but I don't I don't want a jury manager for, uh for Democrats. Let's let's let's Independent Commission's doing the lines. Erica. The Supreme Court is very much on all our minds right now. We have Judge Conti Barrett being referred to the full Senate for what looks like it will be a confirmation next week. To what extent does the Constitution limit or the Supreme Court limit the degree of gerrymandering? I know that for some reasons, you cannot Jerry Mander, for example for race, but what I want comes of politics. Could that be a limiting factor? Or could it be actually the reverse of that If we have a 63 conservative majority, which is what some people call it. Yeah, I mean, it's pretty court, in a decision just this past year was wrongly decided, said that the federal courts cannot hear partisan Jerry Mandarin cases. The court is still federal court. They're still open here. Racial jury Mandarin cases and so as a result, we had to bring lawsuits in the state courts using the state constitutions when we wanted to attack partisan Jerry Mannering schemes. I think that decision was wrong, I could federal courts are uniquely situated to deal with questions. Jerry Manning, Whether they be partisan or racial in nature's of the court's cruelly have a n'importe role to play here. My hope would be that the course will stay open Tio hearing racial gerrymandering case is, My hope also will be that ultimately, the court would reverse itself and recognized the decision that they made in the roots grow case was a wrong one. Open the courts. The federal courts up Tio partisan gerrymandering case is a swell Eric more generally. How concerned are you as Ah, Formerly our foremost lawyer in the country about legal challenges and disputes coming out of this election. Are we going to have a clean election? Yeah, I think we are. I mean, I think we gotta be prepared. You know, for cases being in the election, part of the election being decided in the courts, and I think you might see a lot of litigation leading up to the election when decisions are being made about, you know, Signature matches on on on on vote by mail. How long polling places should stay open all those kinds of things, but I actually think that the turnout is going to be sufficiently large and I suspect The decision of the American people is going to be pretty decisive. So I don't really anticipate that the courts will play a significant role post election, But it is clear that both campaigns are getting ready. Have lawyers all around the country and prepared to litigate. Whatever might might might surface would be awfully nice to let the voters decide rather than the courts. I think we both agree it would be a good thing. Does it surprise you that Iran and perhaps Russia would be trying to send disinformation to really tamper with our elections? So it didn't surprise me at all. And I think that you know we had We need to be prepared for these kinds of intrusions. These kinds of attempts Tio interfere with our electoral system. What structures of those frame was just the press conference was held with the information that was sharing was not particularly something that was unanticipated but to try to spin it. As away as an attack one of the Trump administration on the Trump campaign, as opposed to an attack on the American electoral system, I thought was just a little a little, a little different and unexpected. That was former Attorney General Eric Holder coming up going beyond the damage to the economy from.

Google search is the same as an intersection said a defining part on the intersection of US tech and business and then in the middle of magic you there. That's what they call the product management.

But there's no immensely add tate's the product manage. I feel like being being a product manager.

Iran and Ukraine begin plane crash probe

"Start this hour with the series of events that have led to the accusations that Iran shot down a Ukrainian plane by mistake killing everyone on board a week ago today a US drone strike killed. Iran's top military commander Mander in Baghdad. Iran responded with its own missile strikes on basis in Iraq where American troops were stationed hours later that Ukrainian jet bound bound for Kiev crashed shortly after takeoff from Tehran. Iranian officials deny they shut down that jet although the US and Canada have publicly said they have evidence to the contrary for the latest on all of this in the crash investigation. We're joined by the BBC's Joanna Fisher in Kiev and Jona what are Ukrainian officials officials saying about this today. Well it's been very difficult. Actually to get comment out of Ukrainian officials. I think they are in a very difficult position here. They we have a team on the ground in Tehran. That was sent there in the immediate aftermath of this crash on Wednesday and they are trying to do everything they can to make sure that that team who are in Iran at the moment get access to the crash site and to the debris that has been collected. I think they are concerned. -cerned that if they immediately come out and echo what has been said In the United States and in Canada an in Great Britain very firmly pointing the finger at the Iranians blaming them for shooting down this plane that that will make it too difficult for for these investigators who are now inside drawn to do their job said they'd been walking something of a of a tight robe yes definitely a tight rope. in a very delicate situation more than sixty Canadians died in that crash crash reporters yesterday press Canadian. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on whether the United States was partly to blame because this was all created by the volatile atmosphere miss fear the US caused by killing General Qassam. Sulamani is there at the same sentiment in Ukraine about that. Look I think the overwhelming sentiment here in Ukraine is naught again because you have to cost mind back five years to m h seventeen. The Malaysian airlines that was shot down in eastern Ukraine crane. Shot down by a Russian missile almost certainly by Russian forces with the death of all nearly three hundred people on board and I think lots of people here their immediate reaction was surely. This couldn't have happened again and not to our country Has Horrible echoes for many many people about what happened then and the idea that Once again what appears to be happening on the ground in Iran is that they going out of their way to make it very very difficult for a proper investigation take base in that once again echoes. What has been the experience of the seventeen investigation that Russia has done almost everything cancer trying and make it very difficult? This has been a miserable flashback for many Ukrainians to what happened five years ago. We also shouldn't forget that this is a human tragedy how are the deaths of that. Those Eleven Ukrainians resonating there. There's been a memorial setup at the airport. Boris Bill Apple which is where the plane was due to arrive lots of passenger cruise Of other airlines have been going. They're paying their respects. The president has also been. They're extremely the extremely sad scenes around around the airport on Wednesday and on Thursday as well the voss majority of the actual passengers on the plane and they weren't going to End Up in Ukraine. They were transiting onto candidature about one hundred and forty also Of One hundred and seventy six people on board the plane we're going to fly on later that day Onto destinations in Canada. Basically this route Was One of the most efficient to one of the cheapest pissed ways for Iranian Canadian Air Iranians to get from Tehran to to various places in in Canada I wonder to to what thoughts there are about Ukraine again being in the middle of this huge news story because the country is also connected to impeachment here in the United States involved in a military conflict with Russia as well. There's a lot going on in the world that really affects Ukraine. Your thoughts on that. You have to say that Ukraine rain has found itself once again in extremely difficult geopolitical position. this is a country that history is not kind to and Ah once again it finds itself in an impossible position to be quite frank in the last twenty four hours or so Ukraine's friends in the West have not not been particularly helpful towards it. It seems almost that Ukraine was the last one to have access to this intelligence from from the United States pointing to it. Being a shoot down I think it's only in the last few hours. Actually the American embassy here in Kiev has come forward and given that information to the presidency. Here that's the BBC's Jonah Fisher. Kiev Jonah thank you so much. Thank you well. As tensions rose this week between Iran and the United States dates. Saudi Arabia was watching closely. The country is a US ally and a rival of Iran. Joining us. Now from Riyadh is Vivian. Near I'm WHO's a reporter with Bloomberg News Vivian. Welcome thank you would. How has this recent flare up between the US and Iran affected Saudi Arabia? Well something that a lot let people forget because Saudi Arabia of course has in the past taken a very hawkish tone toward Iran. Is that if we're we're actually going to break out. Saudi Arabia would be among the countries that would face potential retaliation could actually be severely hurt security-wise economy wise. So what we seen during this last flare up is Saudi officials really setting a message far and wide that we walked de-escalation. We do not want to see this turn into a military confrontation you know can wiser heads prevail. And let's think about the risks to the region because obviously if there were to be sort of a retaliatory attack to one of the Gulf countries or Saudi Arabia itself that would really heart Saudi Arabia and particularly at a time when they need things to be peaceful when they need things to be good for their economy because they're hosting the g twenty this year. They're trying to bring in foreign. Investors are trying to bring tourist wrist. This is not the time when you WANNA have a war right around the corner and it was just a few months ago that missile in drone strikes on Saudi oil facilities did a lot of damage to oil production there in Saudi Arabia. Arabia blamed Iran for that attack. Although Iran denied responsibility do you think that the Saudis were caught off guard by the killing of Sulamani by the United States. So it's an interesting question because there have been a couple of media reports suggesting that Saudi Arabia was not Informed or consulted ahead of time But I it doesn't seem surprising that perhaps this was a very quick attack. That Saudi Arabia was not informed about was caught off guard about about It's interesting that you mentioned the attack in September because Saudi Arabia actually so just stopped short of blaming Iran for that attack which was really interesting at the time I and a lot of people took that as a sign of Saudi Arabia trying to de-escalate and realizing we don't actually want more so they did go as far as to say Iraq had weapons were used in they even said the attack was launched from the north but I remember being at press conferences where we asked them was around behind this and they would not quite go there they would stop short of that. Okay and and in terms of the killing of Sulejmani were the Saudis happy about it do you think or do. They think that it was not good for them. Well there's been a real mixture of feelings because on the one hand so Damani is somebody who is widely viewed here as a war criminal in a state sponsored terrorist who had caused mayhem around the region through proxy wars supporting militias. So there was actually quite a lot of celebration in the Saudi media and from Saudi pundits and commentators but at the same time you did see simultaneous kind of concern and worry about the potential for that to escalate into a wider conflict. So you saw people saying we're glad so. They money's dead but let's be careful that this doesn't turn into a war you know. I was wondering as people were talking about General Suleimani and the fact that he was really The military commander for all of Iran's activities what effect His death will have on the war in Yemen which has been kind of a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. It's a bit too early early to say but we've already seen even before his death steps and effort toward ending Saudi Arabia's his involvement in the war in Yemen thought at this point. The war in Yemen has really devolved into this complex civil war. You know merged with famine and this horrible humanitarian catastrophe. So I don't think we can really talk about an end to the war in an easier way but you do see that. Saudi Arabia does seem to be moving towards trying to disengage and trying to kind of end their role in that conflict which seems to be part of a broader strategy to take a step back from some of the crises and conflicts that the kingdom has gotten involved in over the past couple of years. Does it appear to so you that because of the recent of flare up in tensions that maybe there is a chance right now for the longstanding rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia to kind of cool down for them to move toward a detente. That's a very good question and something that a lot of people are asking in the region right now now for two reasons first of all because there have been reports of some sort of talks perhaps going on between Saudi Arabia Iran whether those have been through intermediaries perhaps add Oscar Pakistan or whether they have been more kind of tier two unofficial think-tank level engagements has not really clear clear. But there has been a lot of chatter about our Saudi Arabia and Iran. Actually engaging in talks over the past few months prior to this killing and then the second question is whether the killing of Damani Johny ultimately could perhaps open up some space for Saudi Arabia add on to have some sort of talk because he was a large roadblock in the view of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries towards any kind of negotiated when the Ron because they viewed his role in these proxy wars and it Cetera. Something they just couldn't stomach and now he's gone. Vivian near I'm reporter for Bloomberg based in Riyadh Saudi Arabia. Thank you thank you so

"A moment of silence. About what majors most basic and subtle shapes the winding back and forth, s curve of meandering river. It's a peculiar kind of curve. You can spot it easily on a map anywhere to peers, for example, along the Mississippi River between Arkansas and Tennessee, the curve is not a series of pieces of a circle connected together and is not one of the familiar curves used in science and engineering to describe waves. It's something different. It comes about because a river, in a manner of speaking, does like the make sharp turns sharp turn offers resistance to the flow of the water river seeks the path that distributes that resistance to flow as evenly as possible along the length of the river so the path is not jagged like the letter w but curved in a particular way, something like the letter s you can see that curve elsewhere, for instance in the him. Completed curtain the police at the top of the curtain, try to bend the him at the bottom into some kind of zigzag, but the fabric resists bending makes a smooth even curve like the curve of meandering river. The ruffles on a ruffled blouse and loops of ribbon bow make versions of that beyond river curve. All these examples have in common. Is that whatever it is, as being bent offers a uniform resistance to bending and that determines the final shape, of course, a lot has been left out of our description of rivers.

The return of Peronist politics in Argentina

"Argentina's, Cristina Fernandez decay. Now is back at the full populace president left office in two thousand fifteen with the country on the brink of economic collapse. But if posed to be believed she has a good chance of returning to this in October, as vice president alongside her namesake and former chief of staff, Alburto Fernandez Jonathan Wheatley discusses, how history may be repeating itself in Argentina with a correspondent Benedict. Mander. Living with the. Going seattle. Get new put them meet there in, then they're gay three hundred fourteen dollars. We realize as individualize see noise when a p really says dune associated that was Cristina Fernandez decay, Schnur extolling the virtues of collective action. And so there can be no individual triumphs. In a society based on the kind of social contract that she advocates, but her parents policies left the country in dire state. Then it can you give us a picture of the economic situation, when she left office? Yes, when macrey took our. He find an economy with twin deficits, both in the budget and candidates, central Bank reserves running on Mt. And so you basically had a country that was under budgeted balance of payments crisis at the same time you had very high inflation. They no one knows exactly how high is they still publishing reliable statistics. There was no growth speak of high poverty. In the order thirty percents. I mean it was in a bad way, and it's proved very difficult for macrey to correct that situation. I what he's done. I was one of the big things he's done is turns the IMF and Argentina's being the beneficiary of its biggest ever bailout fifty six billion dollar package, but the IMF is still deeply unpopular in Argentina. Was that? Yes, I mean, it's like a comic book villain Argentina. I mean, it's had a very checkered performance in Argentina over the past sixty years. There have been more than twenty programs pretty much all of which have ended badly. Most recently, the two thousand one crisis was probably the west all that ended in the biggest ever sovereign debt default at a time. Anyway, huge devaluation that triggered very high employment. Those sibling arrest people shot on the streets, and so on having was disastrous. So it's understandable that people have bad memories if the funds engagement in the country. I Fono money Taddeo. This realm integral Montreal remove scenario Torello necessarily casino much of Argentine was brought to a standstill last week by general strike in protest over the government. So stereotype measures are we just had one of the organizers, Kellyanne Rupak Anini describing the IMF is being the Bermuda triangle, sucking in salaries work, health and education? So things apparently haven't improved for the poor under the reforms agreed between the current president Mauricio Macri in the IMF. What are people telling you about the hardships? They're facing at the moment. The first thing that people say that they just are able to make it to the end of the bone, and that's those that are employed, right? Because there's a huge amount of releasing Jones, but those that are earning salaries which not keeping up with inflation, finding it very difficult to pay for just the basic items food, prices have been up extremely fast and utilities as well have been rising several times over. So people just. Yeah. The month and that is obviously, causing significant social unrest. And you'd be not speaking to small businesses on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. How are they putting up with things the slums and the working class area's been particularly badly hit where there are lots of factories and workshops which not very competitive and been competing with impulse China. The defended the local markets, a lot of have been closing down. So that's leading to mass unemployment in the poorer areas of the city, which is causing big problems on against those are large part of the electorate, exactly. That's the heartland of Christina Fernandes occasion. And she is likely to do very well in that part of the electric ended makes up about a quarter voted. So it'll make significant difference. Deana. See my settlement brother shit. I mean goon Dino. And. Taylor. That was Christina Fernandez running mate, berto Fernandez. No, relation saying it rally that his coalition would eliminate Argentina's debt without making any Argentine suffer the cost with promises like this, how, as Mr. macrey can fight fightback. Well, it's not easy. The big thing that maybe hadn't his favorite, the beginning was that he was supposedly better, managing the economy, now that is not really proved to be the case or at least not over these four years. A lot of people, and I find themselves in a worse position night and they were four years ago. So he's having to look the other areas to sell himself, so recently, they've been inaugurating public works, major infrastructure projects, roads bridges sewerage signs, rather present, but these things do make a big difference to another people. And that, having that will help and also you have to remember that there are no infrastructure projects under the previous government that they're started. We wouldn't have. Completed. So this is also a reminder of the corruption that supposedly happened under the kitchen as you mentioned corruption that Benedict. What about all the court cases that are going on what bearing will that have on the election? Well, that is the million dollar question Argentines have known to vote into power politicians that have been accused of corruption in the past. So it's not gonna be the Bill and endle-. It will certainly have an impact on the margins. I think that polls show that the NFL this is a supporters. Don't actually believe the corruption charges identing that's going to affect that sector of the vote, but in the middle ground, perhaps it will and the extent to which it does could even decide the election another problem that obviously Argentina faces is that foreign investors very quickly lose trust in the country, and we've seen the huge devaluation of the currency last year again, this year, one of the problems that we often hear about is that Argentines themselves. Don't trust the currency. How do you fix a problem like that? Well, this is one of the great dramas of Argentina, and it's not clear to anybody otherwise. They might have six up more ready. It'll take years, perhaps decades of macroeconomic stability for trust in the currency to return or even appear. So the first thing that needs to do is kill inflation, which has proved incredibly hard on democracy. He thought it was going to be very easy, but it's not higher than it was when he came to power looks like it's beginning to go on a dine with paws, but it's going to take a very long time to get rid together at any then I think we'll people say, they're encouraging Argenta on politics have been compared to a circular firing squad. Is there any sign that, that passing could be halted in that Mr. macrey could engage with more moderate parents elements to win a consensus for his reform programme? Well at the beginning of this government, he did manage to cooperate with the mall, mudder elements apparent ISM and was able to pass some important. Reforms, more recently, the last year or even two that has not been so successful, but doesn't no reason why if he does win he couldn't do that again. But the polarization of Argentine politics is a huge problem. It was something that macrey promised to fix and he hasn't. Debatable as to why. But this is going to be a problem going forward without a diet. And why has Christina finance chosen to run for the vice presidency rather than as president this time? Well, you need to. That I mean it's impossible to get inside the head, but some people suggest that it may be because she thought she couldn't actually win. But then again, it's not clear that the person who is running in place on both the mandates will win either. So it could also be that, perhaps, even if she did win. She thought that she might not be able to govern efficiently at least as she might have liked to how she did in previous governments, which were current terrorized by the FTA amongst others is the populist politics. And as we all know populism doesn't mix very well with all sturdy, and that is the situation that we're in at the moment. So she might have decided to pass the buck. Thank you very much. We will certainly be watching with great interest as we get closer to the election. That was Jonathan.

Empires. Meade's sort of in the area of Persia and the other word the lydian empire that control the big chunk of Asia Minor, including a Yoni. So the Iowans were Greeks who had been there for centuries because the Dorian invasion had pushed everybody all over the place, and they were living along the coast of Asia. Minor Annalong those those islands along the coast and the Libyan's were controlling them. And they wanted it into the war, and knowing these Sarah cycles from the Babylonians Staley's was able who is also a mathematician, he was able to calculate the likelihood of an eclipse. So he probably didn't know the moon was getting in front of the sun announcements causing it. But he knew the mathematics of it. And he turned out. He was he ended up being ri-, and he went to the commanders of both sides, and he told them the gods are really upset about this war. We need an end to the war and to to demonstrate that the. Gods are gonna dark in the sky on Tuesday at three o'clock, whatever and he was he got a little bit lucky because these cycles don't predict the eclipses that note map precisely but a little bit of luck. Also, got it. Right. Whoa. This guy knows what he's talking about. And the war came to an end and Staley's was also able to negotiate pretty good terms for the Onians, which is good for Iranian business. 'cause basically, I only were business people. They were maritime traders all that dailies himself had a certain amount of celebrity status because he predicted a really good olive harvest foreign urine. So he bought up all the olive presses. And you got to be really rich guy because he had this money, and you had this fame by ending the war and that helped him establish a philosophy school on the island of militants in people were flocking to come and study with him and some people eat that we hear about were students affair. Phillies address, for instance, puts agress was one of daily students. Eventually had a really didn't agree with dailies whole approach to how how you obtain knowledge, but he started out as when if they Lee students yet another student in accent Mander who is the earliest person, we know of to come up with an volition area theory about the emergence of humanity from fish that we started out fish, and he reason that fish don't need their their their mothers just come out of an egg in they either get eaten or they could survive. And so he reasoned that human infants couldn't have reclaim them in humans all time because infants can't survive in the first human would have be an instant in, you know, the chicken and egg problem. So he he reason it back to back to fish next week will jump ahead to the middle ages. And here fascinating story about the origins of astronomy. In the meantime, Dr David warm flashes.

"And I mean, historically when we were foaming anti-poaching unit working with one the men that we would employ would be employed from places far away we bring them in. And that's I went living next to the working store to cousins brothers, and even my of wis it and hoods of animals are going to be because I've worked with some of the best units in African corruption. Always creeps in often say gun African getting upset with with corruption under the beach and getting pissed off with the sand. It's dares. It's how we how manage it that that determines the difference between success and father of a program, and if you can walk in and take corruption out of the equation already halfway on and. You know? So we with the women we haven't seen corruption yet, we with fifteen months into we haven't seen in an incident of corruption and that allows us to employ a hundred percent from the local community Ron stowed away where will working and that turns the because lawn out and we haven't conservation, which is Lauren Folsom into a direct community investment and putting money that would otherwise be dispersed around the country directly into the local community at household level into the hands of women and just politically I mean that makes it a lot easier for you to get on what you're trying to get done. And then these women are empowered and they can buy land, you know, raise their kids. It's amazing. What ching the transformation H? One of these women has a has a tough story a tough background. They will savant of abuse domestic violence sexual sexual violence. I often single mothers abandoned, so they've when we put them through training. We you know, we thought we were being tough on them that. Really been through them Bex. Yeah. Just seeing the way that they transform themselves. Absolutely. No handouts that have been given on this program. We might bloody tough anything we might tougher than we normally would because we reputational risk Moen's of employing women. Now, putting me at this. We thought we you know, we really going to test them. And once we saw the potential capabilities toughness resilience, it became not jump to try to when you got the first group of women and began the training. Did you think like, you know, this could go sideways like or did you think this is gonna work right from the outset noth- from three die one? We knew we had very special somehow. I can just see, you know, you learn the most about someone when when that I think they're being watched. And some of the stuff would putting these women through and seeing how they worked together and just cracked on with minimal Foshan and getting the job done. And and was a pretty obvious diners environment at the time. So how many women are part of it now? So we have forty seven stuff that are employed around forty of those women we got seven guys that are working on building roads and doing construction at in the Bush, and we've got James so James was the skin for the hunting relation that used to be the and so when when someone would come in and shoot an animal, which doesn't happen anymore. We've we've bought the company will the the area route working with the the other stakeholders this we've bought out the options to to help they ever again putting different models in. But. The giants who lift over that. He's now being trying to as vegan Schiff. So he used to skin animals. He's getting tat doesn't care at. All. These women are eating vegan. Right. Yeah. The programs vegan and we took that stance by making the program being necessarily making the women vegan. But giving them the opportunity, and the understanding of why we think conservation should be leading the pack in terms of driving a vegan message around the world people that saw out for conservation. Because I love the environmental animals are coming to what bid away to take down almost district in your math. Yeah. I saw the sixty minutes piece that just came out recently, right in Australia. Yeah. On Coscia, and it's emotional. I mean to see these women coming from the circumstances that they were in to this incredible place of empowerment s-, and then to be recognized and when they go back to their commute. Unity's or they go to schools like everybody knows who they are. Like, it's it's a it's a big thing.

"What's happening ritual? Here. Your host on the podcast, welcome. Or welcome back to the show the show where I do my best to have conversations that matter with the most inspiring people positive change makers that I can find or I guess I should say at least that I can convince to sit down with me. Right. I jest. But look I feel like the show is off to an incredible start in two thousand nineteen David Goggin doctors act Bush killing and today's episode extends that trend with a truly remarkable human being the vegan sniper himself Damien Mander, Damian is a guy respect deeply a guy that I've wanted to get on the show ever since I watched is incredibly powerful and moving tedtalk, it's called modern warrior back in around two thousand thirteen I think I urge all of you to watch this video it just might change. What? And how you think about what it means to be a man. And of course, I'll put links to that in the show notes. Damian is a former Australian Royal Navy clearance diver and special operations military, sniper, basically, this Gaza massive bad ass who after several years in many deployments in Iraq, experienced what I can only be described as essentially an existential crisis around how he was living his life and this catalyzed a complete lifestyle. One eighty he ends up liquidating all his personal assets that he acquired from twelve tours of duty and ultimately founds, the international anti-poaching foundation, which kind of punctuates this reinvention of himself from modern warrior into African wildlife crusader, leveraging his tactical warrior experience to advance the cause. Of animal, welfare and environmental conservation. This guy's a very outspoken vegan alpha male soldier turned activists who is now on this amazing life mission to end poaching and trophy hunting. Damian's work has been featured in National Geographic, sixty minutes animal planet, aljazeera voice of America, Forbes and the Sunday Times, and he is prominently featured in the upcoming James Cameron produced vegan athlete documentary game changers. But please don't ask me when that documentaries coming out do not know in any of that Damian is the real deal and his transformation from being this meeting man's, man. Mercenary into hardcore animal conservationist is absolutely riveting, and you're not gonna wanna miss it. It's all coming up in.
