"They might just control the game. I'm going to see an edgy one Liverpool win. Meanwhile, after a number of seasons, away from the competition spurs return to the Champions League and interesting opening time for them as they take on a Marseille elsewhere, I'm trying Frank for the open league winners entertain sporting. Let's get the former captain of Marseille, shall we on the show to discuss this tie. How do you see it going, Frank? Well, it's going to be interesting to see much coming back to the Champa thing. They have a very bad records. I think they lost the last 13 games of the competition, which is a very big record, a bad one. And I think they want to stop that. And they will have to count on three. I think a couple of former arsenal players to do so against stock Nam is going to be a big task for the Marseille team because I think Tottenham is superior to his name in names in, I guess, in talent, but they will have to but Tottenham will have to play against a fantastic spirit in that most state team. So is that going to be easy for spurs? I think he's going to be even more difficult for Marseille, but everything is possible for the mastery is. And it's going to be very interesting to watch that. Go work some computers outside our studio here. So why don't you talk about spurs more? In the show. And it's like, well, there's not much to say about them at the moment, because they're just kind of ticking over under the radar. I've never said that to me when I walked past. You have this air of unapproachable abilities in the building. That's not true. I was eulogizing about talking south of the season to him. The other day. When he was slightly frustrated, they're getting a job done by just the odd goal. But they're getting the job done. And I think that's why this is going to be another good test for them. This is a decent group for them, but I think after having a spell in the Ural polygon, the conference, whatever it was that we're in the last year or two, to go back in here amongst the big boys, even though it's not the strongest of groups, just to prove to themselves that they can be in there and keep their momentum going. Yeah, I mean, they've got the squad to do it. It's not a game I'm looking forward to, I have to say, I don't think any Tottenham game is. That's not to say that not got a good squad. They're just not an Antonio Conte is never a super exciting to watch. And I don't think Tottenham must say is going to be up there with the people that are more controlled, flicking on to watch that one. Luckily we have many screens, and that one is in the top corner. Let's remind you of the other game showing there taking place on Wednesday just an addition one. There are some decent ones, not this one. That's also in the top corner. It's not even on.

"Progress. You need to improve. But you kind of quickly realize how good you are. And then eventually you sign up for a team like Khan, which is a professional football club. And then from that moment, you know, also, you know, you becoming a young professional. So I was lucky enough to have some quality that's quickly made me realize that I could do something into the job, but like I said, you going through phases where you grew up faster than others, you get injuries, more often than others. And it was my case. So every time I was hitting good momentum, I was getting injured. My back, my knees, my ankles, and then quickly realized that, you know, football life is good, but you know you have hubs and downs, but like I said, when you sun for a team like arsenal, which is well, you know, more than me, what arsenal used to be at that time. You need to work saying that in the industry, you know? Before you arrived to arsenal, there was something big that happened in your life that has nothing to do with football. It's that incident you had when you were a bit younger before before the move where for people who are listening to the show, they won't see your hands, but we see them because you're not wearing any rings, although you marry to the lovely Shaolin and all of that, but there's no rings on your hands, but that day you had a ring on your hands and if you could just tell us what happened and what you remember of the day where you had that accident that could have changed pretty much everything. Well, I remember clearly and you'll be laughing, but I remember it was a Friday 13, which is in France. It's a day where, you know, it's a little bit of butter. I remember that that date was Marseille piaget, you know, the game big one. And we were all excited.

But i can't always explain away everything that people claim and that's part of the the joy of this show when a lot of ways we're exploring these topics were looking at it from different angles were challenging people who claim they have these what some might call outlandish believes but even more mysterious. Why do they think the way they do if it is just a quote unquote delusion a delusion.

It's a new thirteen so roughly the same spot. Yeah it's a first episode that we've had in a while that we've actually agreed on. It will kind of like that wasn't like is going to be in the bottom somewhere. So yeah we went through a little bit of a rough stretch there What's the next episode is okinawa. I think oh. Yeah okay which should be pretty good. I think the and it's still i know. At least that's still relevant. Because the whole thing is like i think a lot of the okinawa episode of our remember correctly is them talking about how a lot of locals don't like the us military presence there because the us soldiers usually go out get drunk and stupid shit and they were supposed to move there. Were trying to figure out how they could move the military base to like a different part. But then i think they wanted like okinawa. Pay for some of it off to do some research before we watch it but yeah there's a weird thing with trying to relocate the base. I didn't know and that's been that's been going on for years. Okay about that makes sense. So but checkout chefs and guess episodes So tomorrow be episode with riders at suzy's chef. At the optimists and nashville last week was matt swint.

Two guys traveling around eating good food exploring the city that neither one of really been too and I did have so would they would show in like this.

No but i remember it as you saw that i was like wonder what the mindset has to be to get a ribcage pistol tattoo see. I was thinking it was more abdominal. I'm just kind of like wrapped around but it's like down like just above the hip. Yeah but that was and then you know what else i thought. There's probably a lot of guns in france compared to the us which i guess comparing any other countries to the number one yeah had a regardless but yeah it was pretty interesting. That's a a power move. I guess you also can't get that tattoo like you're severely overweight like you have to be in good shape. You can't really get any time. I mean it's harder to make tattoos local. You know what i mean. You can do arms and stuff kinda feel like regardless of yeah but like the torso. Yeah you gotta be ripped.

Family-run shop for like seventy years. Yeah that looked pretty awesome. Boom as it should have metro. Pass day or something like that. I think it was what it was called is hard to kind of pick up some of the names. So did he from him. that there. Because i don't think of cured me when i think of northern france and all that but it might just thinking wrong. He just made a point that like that region makes really good. Cured meats. I think it was probably more because it's just been handed down family member to family members. Probably all right. I would be kind of my assumption. Because i mean every everybody makes cured me everywhere. Yeah but i mean like known for it though like Maybe i'm stupid figuring that out a lot with this episode.

There's not like a tourist boat. Like people aren't throwing coins in the water or anything. It's just this dude who's like yeah like jump off cliffs. Okay do you think they picked it out 'cause like they were going to get there and like maybe one of them would want to jump off and then they saw like fuck that no little sense but still little. But i mean. They weren't yeah. I don't i don't think they're doing gotcha stuff like oh we're here. You want to jump off you know unless that was supposed to be like an interview and stuff to just went horribly terribly bad and they just cut it and really show jumping off a cliff.

I don't think logically and you know that about me so i thought another thing that was funny and that scene is that people have no idea who serving them pizza. Yeah because he's not.

Said he never made a pizza up until then that blew my mind like living in new york and he's never had an off day where he's like. I'm gonna bobbly crust cans of tomato soup. Nothing i guess.

But he's like like you just gonna putter around. So i was curious what your ideal retirement looks like and i guess we could call it like. Let's realistically we're not retiring tiller seventy probably i mean i don't know with inflation and everything else. Let's hope and social security. Yeah let's hope it sixty or sixty five fifty five if we're really really lucky. What does that look like for. Well that depends though right. So it's like are you still getting me up and up. And adam at seventy that's going to be a different thing than sixty five or sixty. I don't know like. Are you going to be like gardening. No it's also very depressing to think about having regretting asking the question to strain on your back gardening. Yeah i don't know. I don't i've never really thought about retirement. Just because it's it's always like i just way out there like obviously save for retirement stuff like that. I have a 401k and whatnot. But i've never thought lake. Where am i because it's you know at least thirty years away so it's just it's a worry about it when it gets closer. There's a lot of land to cover between there now right and you might not even make. That's the other part. While jesus man we were just talking about that. You gotta live a little because you never know when Yeah it's all going to be over you know so that's like the weird thing is like you're trying to save. Everybody just assumes like yahoo til ninety. It's usually once you hit. I think it's usually try. Remember the stats. But it's like when you get in your mid forties. There's like for the average person and the people that they know like once you get near forties like. There's usually a couple of people that you know like unexpectedly die I think it's usually like heart attack stuff like that answer. And then there's like another blip when you're in your sixties early sixties. I think people start dropping. Yeah like the sixties seventies and then. It's just kind of like just randomly sporadic. After that my person passed away at seventy two making me wanna go eat a bunch say eyeballs or something. There's really change change my ways. Did you ever hear about. I think it was. Maybe he was probably like a vice documentary or something or one of the one of their tv shows before they went off the rails enough. They're still on tv. Yeah i don't know either.

Yeah i'd go there. I think i i never been to paris so i go to paris. I but then it's like kind of a toss up between marseille and leone. I guess maybe the edgewood beat leone. Because i think it has more kind of restaurants marseille. There's only like one three michelin-starred restaurant which they go to which look awesome. Was i love that. They had like tiny elevator just for the dessert cart more. Maybe it was to bring out the russians the cheese. Yeah but they probably brought everything like that. I don't know but it did. You see how like it. Maybe it's how they filmed it but it looked like it only moved two feet but it was just like it was just like. Yeah this is like we put in whatever we want like. Yeah we're gonna have a two foot elevator so that we can get this cheese guard out here like it was ridiculous. Yeah lepetit niece the name of the restaurant. But it's pretty cool like they have their own fishermen like they have exclusive fishermen that go and catch. They went on a boat with the Longliners five guys left to do it. They didn't catch anything which is pretty much par for the course on every fishing seen that they have we. Can we talk on something there because ordained shared a fear of his. That i share. And that's i just really am afraid of fishhooks. I'm always convinced they're like because you know they're barbed right. So i'm just always convinced they're going into my finger and then i'm gonna have to push and then clip it so i can get it out. I mean at least you know that you have to push it through. Yeah yeah but it's still. I don't wanna die like i'm just always convinced that that's going to happen to me so i'm scared of him too. Irrational as if it's like it's going to touch me the barbs inside of me already like i hate it. I think that just comes with not being around fish. Like fishing and fish expert. Yeah see kids like my brother's friend growing up now like a professional bass fisherman like he won whatever. The big tournament is for that a couple years ago but one of his friends or him. I can't remember it's sponsored by bass pro shops. Yeah no it is yeah. It'd make pretty good money doing that. funny pm.

It went through his went through his eyelid and to call like an ophthalmologist. And like it actually went into his eye but like didn't blind him somehow Pretty crazy yeah. I think that's why most like. I mean obviously out in the sun too as well so you're gonna wear sunglasses but i think even if they've just wear like clear lenses too. I think that just absolves wear of some kind just to me because especially if you're around like other fishermen it's i think it's one of those things where it's always like. Does that guy really know what he's doing. You really paying attention. Like i mean there's like it's not..

He was on was peru episode. I believe which was the first season the first or second season who has been a little bit since he's a popped up but pretty much second largest city in france older city in france on the mediterranean. And it's kind of the overarching question is is it really france because nobody in france likes the people of marseille and vice versa. Yeah it seems that way there. They don't necessarily feel french as much as they feel like. They're from marseille. They brought it up later in the episode. They're talking about Like dane he didn't say it but like someone said like gm loyalty to new york over the loyalty to new york. I and then the us. He's kind of like yeah. I mean kinda do.

Because it's like there's all that influence from all those other countries you go there. You're like it's a different place than the rest of the country. you may even have like just. There are huge swath of the city. That's like you better speak spanish or yeah good luck getting an order in or whatever. That's i mean. That's yeah. I would say that's a pretty good equivalency. Yes i'm done for the episode. That yeah i mean. There's kind of a melting pot because it was the port city for when france had a bunch of different colonies before they became alter independent nation so like morocco Everything like anything on the coast. They listed off like three or four morocco's one of them turn remember the other one's with Algieria denise maybe now. But i think so. Yeah i mean. Tunisia i just trying to think of the map Maybe even libya. I don't know how much of a french influence there wasn't libya back in the day. But it's all that stuff kind of on the northern coast of africa and and stuff. That was once you know their colonies and everything and then they became their own countries. So people people from those places kind of migrated across the mediterranean and landed in marseilles to as well but once all that kind of talk about it and once all that kind of happened. That's when marseille kind of had a bit of a downturn because it was like they've lost all this kind of all business that you would have with being a port city essentially and once all those cities kind of went away didn't have a direct attachment anymore to france and kind of some jobs went away and stuff like that so there are sections of the city. That are fairly poor..

In 'Stillwater,' an American Oil-Rig Worker Seeks to Exonerate His Daughter
"It's a familiar story. The stereotypical American goes abroad crass and brutally honest, but with a heart of gold, who breaks all kinds of rules to save the day. But while the new movie still Water may wink at this formula, it has its own story to tell about America's place in the world. You're innocent, so we gotta keep fighting. It doesn't matter that I'm innocent Dad. It's not about justice about finding peace. That's Matt Damon as Bill Baker, a former oil rig worker who travels to Marseilles, France, to see his estranged Daughter, Alison, played by Abigail Breslin. She's in prison accused of the murder of a local French Arab girl, but claims to be innocent, and Baker struggles with the unfamiliar language, culture and legal system as he attempts to free her The movie is out now in theaters and its director is Tom McCarthy, who won the Academy Award for best original screenplay for Spotlight in 2016. I began by asking him if the real life case of the murder of MEREDITH Kercher, which sent American Amanda Knox to an Italian prison in 2000, and seven before she was eventually acquitted. Inspired this film. I would say the seed was there. I started the script 10 years ago, Really? And I was sort of fascinated with that case, particularly the idea of An American student being imprisoned and then ultimately focusing on the relationship between as you point out her and her estranged father. So it started there and worked on this first draft of the script with another writer, and I just got into a place where it just was straight up thriller. I just felt it lacked dimension and Maybe authenticity, and I sort of put it down. I made the decision is director not to pursue it. Put it in a drawer for about 67 years and I picked it up again and I re approached it sort of from Page one with two new French writers. And we really talked right off the bat with Tamar. But again, in the way Debray about exploring the sort of you know all the dimensions of this story, the human dimension of it. The thriller Dimension suspends

Matt Damon Runs Deep in “Stillwater”
"That take people into unexpected and difficult places. And that's the case in the new film. Still Water starring Matt Damon, I'm trying to get my little girl out of jail. That's all I give a damn about. You sound very American right now. Good. I am. Yeah. And you're also a stranger here. What did you do? You just have to trust me. Well, let's talk about it with Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday, who joins us on Skype. It's great to have you back in. Thank you so much. Hello. Hello. So the premise of this film seems to have been inspired by real world cases of Americans who have been imprisoned overseas. Tell us about it and how this this film takes it on. And how does it do? Well, it is, um Sean is based on the Amanda Knox case, which I'm sure a lot of people will remember that Amanda Knox was imprisoned in Italy for murdering her fellow exchange. A fellow exchange student and filmmaker Tom McCarthy, of course, who won the Oscar a few years ago for the wonderful movie spotlight took that as a jumping off point, but really only that this does not. This is not a retelling of the Amanda Knox story. He focuses on a father character here, played by Matt Damon, who, as you heard in the clip comes to Marseille, where she's in prison. And and, um, first just on a routine visit, but then following up on a lead to maybe get her released and I think you know McCarthy is a wonderful film maker that's been as well established in his previous work, but He does slip here a little bit only because he wants this to be a lot of different movies in one way. It's an international thriller. Almost in that tradition of taken with a guy you know, trying to do the right thing by his daughter, Um, and then it also turns into a love story. The the wonderful French actors Camille Catan from a terrific Netflix series called Call My Agent.

That is tied up with tommy lee jones at the cia. And there's all sorts of questions about privacy and how the government gets involved in different spheres. They definitely responded to how culture had change since two thousand seven when twitter wasn't even a thing yet and facebook was barely a thing and now it's just a completely different world now technologic technologically speaking. Yeah yeah that's true and certainly there are some bad remakes and bad continuations. But if you do a good job. I'm here for veronica. Mars continued on hulu. Heck yes just august. It love it. Yeah but one thing he did say was that getting in shape was a little more difficult for the movie but that he says i am a better actor now so that part was easier while he definitely one thing. I perceive these movies is they. Do not glam the actors up. And i mean matt. Damon looks older in jason bourne. He does not look. Like the fresh baby-faced two thousand and two matt damon who was i mean already established as an actor but he was still really young and up and coming and i mean he has grey in his hair when he comes back in jason bourne and he looks tired and he has bruises all over him. And i even like the women like of course. Pamela landy is more dressed up in the office but like she and Nicky parsons aren't super glommed. Up in when nikki and marie get haircuts to disguise themselves. They don't like come up with this like super ya baa. Both of them get really shaggy. Bad hair dye jobs.

"And there's another part in the bourne identity where they go to his friend's house and he has children and there's a part where she says. Well i he wants to get out of there because there are children we stay here. They end up staying there and she says something like if anything happens these children in he is so firm. Nothing will happen to them. It is fine. I will not let anything happen to them. in there i think one of the best scenes in the entire franchise is in the second film at the end when he finds who was a young child at the time when he killed her parents but now as a young woman and he finds her and explains to her what happened in that he killed her parents and i think it is one of the best scenes in the entire series that he has that conversation and that is just like the recurring thing like he has a weakness for children in compassion. Yeah you know. I didn't pick up on that as a theme throughout. But you're right and even that he went to go see that you know she was a girl now young woman when people were like right on his tail but like that was where he was heading. And it's because he set up the crime scene as if the girl's mom had killed her dad and then herself is how he made it. And what an awful thing to think about your parents or you know you're one parent that they killed themselves and your other parent like that. That would just be horrible to to believe especially when not true they died. I don't night. I want now. My my mother didn't kill my father that she didn't kill herself.

Either they're seeing how much time and how little effort she is putting in and getting these lawmakers to like. Pay attention to things.

Will a face mask keep you safe from viruses on a plane?
"Months now, health officials in Hong Kong have meticulously tested contract all passengers who land in the city. So they know which passengers boarded a plane infected with cove nineteen and whether or not the infected anyone else. David Friedman is an infectious disease doctor at the University of Alabama. At Birmingham he's been analyzing this data with a specific focus on one airline Emirates Airlines where since about April they've had very very rich masking emerets not only requires masks but ensures passengers wear them. Friedman. Examined the airlines flights to Hong Kong, in June and July what he found is telling. During that time Emirates had five flights with at least seven infected people on board and yet on off I flights no one else onboard got infected. Those are flights that you should be high risk and where there was no transmission on another flight at a Dubai Twenty, seven infected people boarded a single plane for an eight hour trip. Guess how many other passengers got sick there Appears to have been to invite transmissions to Friedman says that without the masks he would have expected many more cases. In fact, scientists have not documented one super spreading event on a plane since airlines began to require masks together all this suggests masks are working. There's encouraging evidence from a number of flights that masking does helped greatly, but it would be nice to study at better. If, feel like the risk on the plane with masks is low, the circumstantial evidence is that risk is low if you have Richard Masking in that last part is key to keep the risk low on planes. Everyone needs to keep the mask on the entire flight why Lindsey Mar? At Virginia Texas Plains have excellent air ventilation systems which can remove corona virus particles from the air about every six minutes. So the only opportunity to be the virus that's in the air as if it gets to you before it goes through. That ventilation system, and so that's only going to happen if you're sitting close to the person who's sick because of planes ventilation systems, your risk comes almost entirely from the people sitting around you. That risk is lower when they have on masks. If someone is sick, they could be releasing virus into the air, the mask blogs that it prevents the virus from getting out in droplets and aerosols. A mask also reduces how much virus breathe then and it stops big drops spit from hitting your mouth and nose for these reasons Marseille's. Flies, she carefully chooses which mass to where if I'm flying I use my best mask. It has a couple of layers of hupa filters that remove more than ninety nine percent of articles on the plane I want the best there is to if you have access to an in ninety five mask or even a P. One, hundred respirator use that just make sure it fits properly in keep in mind it doesn't protect your eyes though. So this is where you might WANNA consider wearing a facial or goggles or some other kind of protection also remember to keep surfaces around you clean, avoid touching your face and be quiet. When we talk, we can admit ten times more virus particles than when we're silent. Finally Friedman says, don't forget to wear a mask in socially distance throughout the whole travel process including well boarding and exiting the plane I mean you can control people getting on getting office just because everybody rushes off. For this reason Friedman says he and his wife aren't flying this year for Thanksgiving.

France holds defiant rallies after murder of teacher
"Have been held across France in remembrance of the Parisian Schoolteacher Samuel Patty Mr. Patty was beheaded on Friday after showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his pupils. The crime has shocked the country a little earlier. I asked our Paris correspondent Tom just watson about the mood in the French capital. Ask. was the sound of thousands of people gathered in Paris's plus the levick public on Sunday paying tribute to the teachers. Some you patty who was killed two days earlier. While his beheading has shocked this country and demonstrations have been held far beyond the Paris area including the cities of Baldo Leon Marseille, and to lose amongst other places. Patty was killed near the school way worked Asaba about three kilometers north of the French capital and it's understood the motive for his killing was that he showed his students caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. Caricatures published by the weekly Shali Abdul back in two thousand fifteen and that triggered deadly attacks on the satirical newspapers headquarters. At the time those characters were then republished by Shali Abdul to coincide with the trial of the accomplices in that two thousand, fifteen attack. This is in fact, the second terror related incident since that trial began because last month a man armed with meat cleaver tried to storm. What he thought was still Shalhoub does headquarters in Paris and two injured two people in what was a botched attack. President, Emmanuel. macron has immediately condemned the killing of some party and he went on to describe this shocking act of violence as and I quote an Islamist terrorist attack. assassinate. Only. One of our citizens was murdered today because he was teaching at is teaching students about freedom of expression, the liberty to believe and not believe. Local booklet. Dealer Schmaltz compatriot was flagrantly attacked. He was a victim of an Islamist terrorist attack than that. Don't always. What more do we know about the alleged assailant? Will the police shot and killed in eighteen year old man believed to be the Ataka in a town close to the scene of Friday's beheading it's understood that the suspected killer was a refugee from Chechnya who'd only been France for a few months. We authorities say that the MOM was not previously known to the meaning that he wasn't on a terror watch list. Although he is believed to have a relative who is a member of the Islamic state group in. Syria. Will, a French anti-terror team has launched an investigation on a number of arrests have already been made amongst those arrested the suspects, parents and his brother. So as that investigation continues, no doubt more details will emerge about who this eighteen year old walls and whether or not he acted alone. I'm what about the motive Tom. Tell us more about what happened prior to Samuel parties horrific killing will before he himself was killed by the police the suspected attack posted a photograph of his gruesome crime on social. Media. With the photograph he wrote the caption, I have executed one of the dogs hell who dead to put Mahama down. What is understood that earlier on this month, the forty seven year, old history and geography teacher. Samuel Patty had held a discussion with his pupils about freedom of speech and the issue of the caricatures depicting the Prophet Mohammed had been shown in the context of that discussion. However, it should be pointed out that Patty told pupils who might be offended by the caricatures that he was about to should them to them and he said they could leave the room if they wanted to. But nevertheless, all of this prompted complaints from some of the parents of Muslim children in that class and as the issue drew more and more attention, the schools thought had receiving threatening phone calls and the father of one particular schoolgirl is reported to launched an appeal on line calling for action to be taken against similar petty. We'll all the while these school offered its full support, the teacher and tried to engage in dialogue with the parents who complained. And then on Friday this eighteen year old attack came to the school asking the people to point out the teacher in question which they did, and he then killed him. So. Does been shocking sequence of events has been disbelief at the barbarism of this crime, and the fact that someone should have been beheaded for raising the issue of freedom of expression, which is such a core tenet of what it means to be.

The Hippie Trail Killer Charles Sobhraj
"We're all born with the need to be nurtured and loved we cry out for our parents when we're hurt or when we're scared for those whose please go unheard however, the desire for affection is sometimes unbearable and can lead down a dark road. Charles Sobhraj. Never felt the love and support of a stable family. He was born in the spring of nineteen forty four in Saigon French Indochina better known today as Vietnam. His mother was a shop girl named Chen Lang Fun who went by Noy and his father Hotan Chun Sobhraj was a wealthy Indian textile merchants but the union wasn't to last when Charles was only. Two years old noise took her son away from Hotan after learning he had another wife back in India. Fortunately, for Noye, she found a new start with French army Lieutenant Alfons Doro they fell in love and married in nineteen forty eight when Charles was four but Charles wanted nothing to do with his new stepfather and long to be reunited with coach and his real family. He got his wish in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine when they moved to France with Alphonse and sent five year old Charles to live with his father. But the reunion didn't go as Charles expected just like his mother Ho Chun had remarried and started a new family amidst the growing number of half siblings. Charles struggled to compete for hotel son's attention and felt unbearably neglected. Vanessa's going to take over and the psychology here, and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, but she has done a lot of research for this show thanks Greg unlike some of the serial killers we've discussed in the past Charles never faced physical or sexual abuse. Instead, he endured a different kind of childhood trauma. He was ignored in favor of his half brothers and sisters according to psychiatrist Bruce, Perry, feelings of parental neglect can lead to increased aggression and cruelty. He adds that one of the most disturbing elements of this aggression is that it is often accompanied by a detached cold lack of empathy. Charles started showing signs of this developing aggression over the next three years. He joined a gang of street thugs who attacked and robbed on spending tourists. Unsurprisingly, his criminal activity didn't win his father's affection. In fact, when Noyon Alfons returned to Saigon in nineteen fifty to poach on sent eight-year-old Charles. His mother it's likely that the feeling of being unwanted by both parents haunted Charles for the rest of his life. In Saigon, Charles was still a handful. So in an attempt to curtail the unruly behaviour, Stepfather Alfonse formally adopted Charles, but it made no difference. The young boy was beyond caring about the acceptance of his family worse as he got older Charles started showing signs of Machiavelli Anisim the psychological trait based around manipulation and his favourite victim was his half brother. Andre. Andre, idolized his older brother which made him. The perfect target for Charles's machinations when Charles was ten years old, he convinced two year old Andre to steal from a shopkeeper when the toddler was caught under a confessed to their mother that Charles put him up to it to which Charles proudly scoffed I can always find an idiot to do what I want. It was clear to know that something had to be done before things got out of hand. So in. Fifty Nine Nov moved the family from Saigon to Marseille hoping the change would help to manage Charles's behaviour and further his education she enrolled the fifteen year old and an agricultural school, but it didn't help though he did display an industrious nature that December Charles tried to make some pocket money by selling Christmas cards on the street but his sales tactics were aggressive. The troubled teen was arrested for threatening people with a knife when they refuse to buy his cards in another bid to reform her son noise secured Charles a job at a cafe in Paris perhaps, some menial Labor would straighten him out that year.

Restaurant Closings And Curfews Divisive As France Grows Weary Of COVID-19 Restrictions
"The full blown second wave that France's now experiencing has many restaurant tours panicking that they will not be able to survive a second shut down for weeks. The country has relied on a regional system to implement restrictions in areas where transmission rates are high. But. Then on Thursday the health minister for the country said Paris could soon join the maximum risk category, which would mean a complete shutdown early next week of bars, restaurants, and cafes some cities, notably Marseille or already on the list Peres has so far avoided further restrictions since it's lockdown was lifted in mid-may. Overnight massive demonstrations of restaurateurs in Paris who don't want to close down they fired flares. To show protests, but the health minister says that in the last twenty, four hours, the capital city cross multiple thresholds that make it a maximum risk environment. Transmission rate in Paris has risen above two hundred, fifty cases per one, hundred, thousand and the percentage of those who have tested positive who require intensive care is now hovering somewhere around thirty five percent one in three
Why 1 million coronavirus deaths is only just the beginning
"Yesterday Norman the world clock devote one million deaths from covid nineteen since this began less than a year ago it's been reported by the Johns Hopkins University. Dashboard, which is a pretty morbid side that keeps keeps an eye on all this sort of stuff apart from the one million deaths we've got thirty three point three, million cases in counting. And it's amazing to think that this all started from one person probably about less than a year ago. Yeah. Ten months ago November, that's the smart money is one person in China from a Bat Or Bats and moved into on ESPN. Is, an extraordinary number. And this is not necessarily going to slow down as many countries go into the second way. So we're at one million. What's the chance? Do you think we'll get to two million? Oh, I think that we'll get to two million without too much trouble unfortunately. We've got view of the United States figures on that Hopkins sites the United States numbers are going back up. There were going down a couple of weeks ago or through a few weeks ago and other going back up. Second Wave Solidifying in Europe France, not come back to France and a minute. So I think that we will get to the the the second million sadly tragically and low to middle income countries are really just getting going with this and there that just don't have the medical facilities that we do into in terms of helping people who've got severe illness. So unfortunately, this is going to go on. So when you look at also where the number of deaths really have. occurred it seems like about ten countries account for more than seventy percent of the debts. Obviously, the US is the big one there nearly a fifth. That's about two hundred and something thousand followed by Brazil India Mexico the UK Italy, where do you think that the new deaths will likely come from? Where is the the virus currently growing? It's going to come from those countries probably because they're the one seeing second wave in the second wave could well be worse than I. I wouldn't be surprised if that looks pretty similar. In some other countries, you're not necessarily going to know what's happening because they're not doing enough testing to really be sure how much corona virus they've got many people are dying of it. So I think it's in countries with doing testing that you're going to see the effect and it's likely I mean you see a million? It's likely that it's seven to ten million in reality. Because we are underestimating the amount of coronavirus around. So one million is just what we know about seven to ten is probably what the real figure actually is, and that's really scary. You mentioned the the second wives coming through a lot of countries and where in Europe, in particular saying a lot of cases suddenly jump up a lot from where they were. But. We're not actually saying the death toll yet follow. Why do you think that is all and do you think that it's likely that that's going to continue that trend so one reason you see a delay in the deaths appearing is that it takes a couple of weeks. People become seriously ill, and then we can be seriously over quite a long time. So that's one reason why it's a delay. There's probably a reduced death rate as well because the getting better at treating people in intensive care with decks meth zone, which reduces death rates by twenty percent nursing tummy not using ventilators and also the older people are so socially isolating themselves wearing masks. So they're tending not to get infected, and so the bias infections towards younger people who tend not to die of covid nineteen of Ova can get long-term effects we've spoken about. On Kurna cast before and you mentioned France before what did you want to say about France? France. Is reporting an upsurge and the authorities there are really getting worried in its report there that for example, one of the senior doctors and France as told newspapers that they're worried that there's going to be enough medical personnel to be able to deal with the the record number of cases that are appearing in France and that they may run out of intensive care beds. And it's patchy and it's also into an underprivileged areas such as Marseille where there's a lot of overcrowding and there's the worry that the capacity of the French hospital system to cope with could be welcomed a very good hospital system. So you mentioned testing before and there's been quite a few announcements recently about testing the other day we saw one from the World Health Organization about rapid testing and I think we also saw demonstration at the White House by President, trump what's the rapid testing? All about what what's it hoped that it'll achieve take overseas before we get to Australia, what the World Health Organization has done through the gates. Foundation is purchased one, hundred, twenty, million test kids rapid test kits. and. These test kits. One of them in particular is a bit like a pregnancy test where you do a swab, you shake it in some liquid and then you Putin liquid on a test strip and you went fifteen minutes into the. Shows the line or to bend your positive for the virus and it's pretty accurate. It's not quite as accurate as the PTR tests the wonder doing the moment but you don't need the artery. You don't need cars to take your samples to a laboratory then get an Aq- and wait for the results. This is done on the sport fifteen minutes. You've got an answer. So it's a way in resource poor environments to get an answer and it is cheaper than doing the PC artists. In countries like Austrailia, these tests could be used as a way of controlling the pandemic moving forward. What are we going to do in states like Batori and you South Wales even Western Australia with US tonight breaking the ship off the coast of port hedland where everybody's vulnerable to new infections coming in from overseas in particular? HOW ARE WE GONNA? Make sure there's no virus circulating that we're not aware of and mass testing particularly where people gather in large numbers is one way to actually see whether it's almost like screening the population see if you're missing any virus. And you can't really do mass screening with the existing resources because you're just going to clog up the system. If. It's instant testing people are more likely to agree to it because they don't have to hang around. They don't have to isolate themselves until they get a positive result. And it's a way of quickly finding out what's going on in an affordable way. Do you know any plans by the Australian government to get any of these rapid testing kits and and instigate that that type of program with therapeutic goods administration has stralia has approved several of these I think it's four or five of these rapid testing kits so that all they're already available in Australia. The one ones that w chose bought, which is like the pregnancy test. By Abbott, his is still under consideration for approval and there's no reason why wouldn't be approved. So the the tests are available here and available affordable price. The ideal here would be one that self contained. We don't need a little machine sitting on a desk some of them do you have to put it into machine? This one is a shake squeeze onto a strip and just wait for the result and there are others do that as well. So there's no reason why not? No in Victoria the DAUGHERTY institute is testing a way of doing mass testing using the PR test, which is the old test if you like the accurate using using saliva and they're testing that in the thousand members of the police force just to work. Out, what is the most efficient way of collecting the saliva? So you could mess testing with the old way of going about it, but the rapid testing is probably more flexible,

Coronavirus cases rise as Europe begins to see second wave
"Europe's covid nineteen cases are spiking. Here's how four different countries are trying to stop a second wave by Melissa. A resurgence in covid nineteen cases as gripped countries across Europe leaving politicians grappling without a curb. The spread of the virus governments are now strengthening regulations around mask wearing limiting the number of people that can gather in public spaces and honing in on areas with particularly high numbers of cases. This week Europe experienced a record high number of new Corona virus cases reaching seventy one, thousand, three, hundred, sixty, five on September twenty first according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and control more than half of European countries have reported a greater than ten percent increase in the past two weeks. Hans clued the World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe said at a briefing. Even countries that had largely avoided the first corona virus wave such as the Czech Republic are now seeing surges stricter regulations to try and curb the spread of the virus could remain in place for the entire winter in the United Kingdom, for example, where case rates are doubling by the week prime. Minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions yesterday that could last six months warning that the country is at a perilous turning point. Many. Of the new restrictions however look different to those imposed at the beginning of the pandemic rather than implementing uniform nationwide regulations. Many countries are now opting for more localized approaches. Why are governments in Europe locking down by region. Countries are wary of nationwide lockdowns that would have crippling impacts on their economies. Local restrictions allow governments to curb the spread of the virus while keeping parts of the country and the economy open. But restrictions are also different this time because the nature of the pandemic itself has changed new infection clusters appear to be linked to younger people who are less likely to die of the virus. The result is that this latest surge of cases has so far been less deadly than the first back in March and less burdensome to healthcare services. Even if the number of cases are high, the impact in terms of hospitalization and deaths is very different compared to March says Dr Jacobo Mendiola Ross, the Director and coordinator of the committee responding to Corona Virus in Catalonia. Rather than calling for stay at home owners, many new restrictions, target bars, restaurants, or other public venues that young people may be more likely to frequent. But the new restrictions could change if older people began falling ill and greater numbers already, there has been a significant increase in the number of older people testing positive for the virus in France and Spain of the past two weeks leading to upticks in hospital admissions rising case numbers threatened to overrun hospitals and healthcare services if not managed carefully. We are not in the situation we were in March yet says, Dominic Costa Yulia, a member of the French Academy of Science and the Vice Dean of research for the Faculty of Medicine at the Sorbonne University. Here, how four European countries are responding to the recent surge of Corona? Virus. Spain. Spain has been facing a resurgence of covid nineteen cases since July and now has the highest infection rate in Europe. Over the past two weeks one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand, new covid nineteen cases have been reported with close to a third of cases occurring in Madrid the country's capital. The total number of confirmed cases now stands at more than six, hundred, forty, thousand and hospitals are reaching their maximum capacity. On, September Eighteenth eastbound de as a USO. The president of the Madrid region announced a partial lockdown of the thirty seven most affected parts of the region which came into effect on Monday the measures which affect close to eight hundred, fifty, thousand people many of whom live in the poorest parts of the city require individuals to provide justification for trips out of their neighborhoods and has limited the number of people allowed in restaurants or retail establishments. The News of the lockdown sparked protests in Madrid where hundreds gathered on. September twentieth the groups that organized. The protests said in a statement that the government has done little to protect vulnerable people in the city and have instead opted for stigmatisation exclusion and territorial discrimination. France. On September twelve French health authorities reported ten, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, one new cases the highest number since the pandemic began in March since then daily cases have risen to more than thirteen thousand, the cumulative number of covid nineteen cases is now at four, hundred, fifty, three, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, three, and continues to rise. It has the second highest number of total cases in. Europe after Spain. The government has delegated the task of implementing new regulations to regional authorities. Currently, the outbreaks appeared to be occurring in certain locations and not in others and a nationwide lockdown would have unnecessary economic repercussions Prime Minister Jean Castex has said. In Paris, Marseille and Bordeaux. All major hot spots for the virus authorities have implemented local measures to curb the spread and Bordeaux and Marseille visits to care homes have been reduced. Dancing has been banned at bars, weddings, and local companies have been asked to make their employees work from home if possible in Marseille and Paris, the sale and consumption of alcohol on the streets after eight PM as been banned.
