COVID-19 Question Answer Session with Dr. Amy Baxter

"So let's chat cove in nineteen. You know what what? What are some of the myths out there that you want to help us bus than you know? Guide us through that. Sure well I think the scariest myth was one. That was introduced to me by my bank teller. I put on a mask. She had on a mass. And we've known each other for years and she said confidentially. Is this really a thing? Because I've got a friend in Brooklyn says he drives by the hospitals in no one's there. Is this really happening? So the biggest myth is that coveted is not a serious disease that it's the same as flu. A study. This week showed that there actually are twenty one times more fatalities from Kobe in New York were from flu so the biggest Smith is is this going way and is is really a thing and the answer is no and yet Yeah no I. I definitely appreciate that. And it's real you know and a lot of us in the healthcare space Definitely feel it but there might be that out and so as we as we think about it. You know What what are some of the questions year getting and seeing that that you feel? The listeners could benefit from knowing around the around this virus. Sure I think that the interesting things are how this virus is different from other viruses and some of those attributes we could leverage for treatments and for care and some of them may get really scary because we don't have One of the papers I read yesterday said this virus is unlike any other and I think it's true. This pathogen is doing things that other viruses haven't so first of all the biggest difference is in infectivity by age. Usually we have what we call A. You're a where the very young ages we have a lot of infections in morbidity which means bad things happening and at the old ages we have a lot of corporate entity mortality. And we don't see that this one is very much a a along J. It's very very low. At young ages goes way at the top other than it. Strange about. This is how long it takes to become infected and how precipitous drop is when people have a problem so. I think that you probably know that. From the time of infection until you show symptoms can be five to seven days so that incubation is very long the scary part is that forty four percent of infections come during that a symptomatic face. So it's very easy to spread without knowing you have it. Which makes it harder to track. Hard to trace and hard to know who detest. Yeah it's It's different and and so how about the ideas of like where it came from and and you know why any thoughts around that sure well. It turns out that bats are natural reservoirs of grunted irises. So for example a Bola was initially in a bat in a cave. That a young boy outside the incident town was playing with. And that's where the virus team from as habitats change as the climate changes. Bats go out of their normal territories and they happen to have grown viruses as a very common infection. It doesn't kill them so it can be transmitted directly to humans now. The certainly the time that this virus started wasn't Wuhan an was from a back but it looking at the strains and the genetic typing of it it seems to be mutating fairly slowly and it makes it very easy to see when it started where it came from so the wet market in China is still the most likely it came from but no matter what. This is. The kind of virus that comes from that directly to humans. I'd heard that and I wasn't sure if it was true or not. I'm like is it. Is it really from Batson mean and then I also hear people saying it came from a lab somewhere? It's a chicken egg thing or a Atlantic yet. There was a there is a lab in Wuhan because of the risk of corona viruses. It had been studying. Bats heavily said SARS and Moore's so both stars and moons are Corona viruses and there had been increased studying bats in that lab. But it's because they're dangerous and because there are risks not because they're trying to create run irises or create infections. It's the fact that somebody was looking at it in researching yet because it was dangerous not that it became dangerous because someone was researching fascinating fascinating. I didn't know that connection. Thank you for that. So as we as we explore this J shaped curve. You know. I'm curious right. I mean I've got a three year old and I've got you know aging parents will tell me more about that and and particular things that you'd recommend for safety and and You know just things that we need to keep on our mind share it. Will I have a couple of theories about why the J shaped curve is typically the U shape curve has to do with mutagenicity so how well your immune system protects you and young? People don't have very weldon alter union systems so they tend to be more vulnerable to respiratory diseases and older people also have decreased immune systems so the the very heavy incidents on people who are over sixty five which seems to be where the cutoff is to have a dramatic increase in risk. That probably isn't due to decreased. Immunity one of the theories is that due to increased immunity. That there were the two grown viruses virus alpha and Beta cuddling named that were circulating in the late fifties and identified sixties. And so it may be that those people were alive in the fifties and sixties before it. Kinda petered out has some immunity that was developed that point which causes an excessive immune response in older patients. Now the other possibilities are this. Virus doesn't seem to enter the body and then get into the bloodstream and spread everywhere. It seems more like this virus comes into the body and marches a bit at a time. Almost as if the the troops come in and they set vacations and it's like World War Two and so the battalion's multiply and spread on a time. So with that being the case the interesting thing is that paper nature last week determined that tissues that this viruses attaching to before the lipid fatty layer of the virus. Fuses with the cell. Can the news in the nose? There's something called an ace two receptor. That is where the little spiky protein hops onto and holds on and their ace two receptors. All over the body but the ones that were interested in the nose and children don't have big noses they also don't have sinuses. You don't get a false at sinuses teenager interesting so because of that. Maybe that's why they they're less less at risk to to get this. Yeah absolutely if what we're talking about is something called viral load which is literally hell many virus particles. You have That is going to be difficult to accumulate in a small child. One of the interesting things I found out was that the nasal cavity size is dramatically. Increased over the age of seventy and it's Moammar nails. Oh is that right. Yeah certainly we've seen that males can be more at risk of catalyses more at risk of catching the virus than females. The ratio is about five to three some studies on about sixty percent of males. Were the ones who are affected by an only forty percent cements

Tripoli crown: the battle for Libya

"Yesterday Germany hosted an international conference aimed at bringing peace and stability to Libya for actors said they would again respect an arms embargo after nine months of intense fighting. The summit failed to secure a lasting ceasefire the conflict in Libya has festered. Ever since Moammar Gaddafi was toppled in two thousand eleven margin. McShane is are Middle East editor today on one inside you have the. UN backed government in Tripoli on the other you have Khalifa Dr a renegade commander who controls much of the east and south of the country and many of the country's oilfields oilfields in reality. Both sides are really just collections of militias and both draw heavily on foreign support. The Tripoli government is backed by Turkey. I'm and half doors backed by Egypt. The and Russia and as things stand on the ground heft ours. Forces are knocking on the doors of Tripoli but they have been since April and the frontlines aren't really moving that much. So that was a situation on the ground lenient to these talks in Berlin. It's a standoff. That has again drawn the attention of western Western powers who had taken a step back from the turmoil but the diplomacy in Berlin didn't go as far as it could have. The sides did not agree to a ceasefire. And that's a big deal but the foreign powers that back each side did agree to stop arming the combatants which is to say. They've agreed to stop ignoring a decades old arms embargo put in place by by the UN and that is meant to start the longer negotiation over a peace deal and will that work. Well that actually get closer to peace. T think it's the most helpful whole thing to happen in Libya in some time and yet I'm not very hopeful at all. Each side has just too much at stake. Here start with the foreign powers. You'll get Vladimir Putin. He's trying to build on. His success in. Syria extends influence in the eastern Mediterranean. And he thinks by backing Khalifa Abdur. That's the best way to do it now. Turkey on the other side has has even more on the line. Which is why it sent troops to Tripoli this month before all the chaos Turkish construction companies were heavily involved in Libya to the tune of something like twenty billion dollars dollars it would undoubtedly play a big role in rebuilding where peace ever to break out in Libya and signed a maritime border deal in November with the government in Tripoli that gives Turkey a decisive Zeiss of say in gas exploration in the eastern Mediterranean? Now these construction contracts that border deal these are things that get ripped up if half hour winds so Turkey. Rickie has a lot on the line and backing the government in Tripoli and let me just say word about half Dr here because he is the definition of a spoiler. I mean he's the reason why so you don't have much hope for Libya he's completely uncompromising believes Libya needs a strong man and of course that it should be him. He walked out of a conference in Moscow. The other week and we we said to be acting in the same usual stubborn way in Berlin he did not meet with fires. All Suraj the Prime Minister of the government in Tripoli and on Sunday his forces closed down to big oilfields in the southwest of the country. That was an attempt to show what kind of leverage he still holds over the government in Tripoli and so why has this come to a head now I mean dental half stars moves have been going on for some time and now it looks like there is this grand. International push for reconciliation think European countries have gotten more involved volved now because they see things getting out of control and they really want to stop that from happening and they want to do that because it's in their own interests to keep the conflict from really spiraling their. The biggest concern is really migrants and Libya had become a jumping off point for African migrants heading across the Mediterranean to Europe and there has been a downturn in the flow since two thousand seventeen nineteen when we got more involved and I think now they don't WanNa see another uptake and that's why you're seeing more action from France Italy and Germany also like Turkey. France and Italy have big energy interests in Libya and until now that has actually put them sooner on opposite sides of the conflict but recently they seem to be singing more more from the same hymn book and I think it's also for Germany and for Europe a test case of whether they can take a leading role in world diplomacy. And so. That's that's what the Berlin talks are all about you also saw at these talks. The European Union's foreign policy chief even hinted that you're might be willing to put troops on the ground if they're able to negotiate a peace deal and what about the Libyan people themselves which they make of all this jockeying for power and the international interest I mean Libyan. They really just want the fighting to stop. That was the main sense I got when I was in Tripoli last year people are just tired of a decade of chaos and instability. But they also see weakness in Tripoli government I mean fires Al Sir Ause the Prime Minister he is hostage to the militias. Who are supporting him? He doesn't have any real power and so many seem resigned to the idea that Libya I can only be ruled by a strong man and they're not so much rooting for Khalifa. Dr They just wanted to be over and think that will eventually come out on top. And what about the prospect aspect of Mr Half dark coming out on top as you say he's entirely uncompromising and seems to be the spoiler for multiple sets of talks here. How does this play out? If he's just simply not going to play the game. I mean you see this sort of grinding siege of Tripoli and I don't think he consider win this war on his own. He's been at the Tripoli since April so he needs foreign helped it all comes down to whether sort of Russia continues backing him and sort of how involved Turkey actually gets on the side of the UN back government in Tripoli if if the foreign powers cheap to the agreement reached in Berlin. Then you could see an end to this quite quickly. I don't foresee that happening. I think this war is going to go on on for some time yet and I think the foreign powers are going to get more involved from here after. Perhaps a momentary lull on the back of the Berlin Conference.

How Kim Jong Un is 'playing' President Trump

"Well. It's been more than a year since since Donald Trump and Kim Jong UN at Singapore and a month since they meeting on the North Korean side of the demilitarized iron. This is the first time a sitting U._S.. President has has ended the hermit kingdom. It was an extraordinary visual as president trump took the final steps north toward the line separating north and south South Korea a smiling Kim Joan walking briskly to meet him the first time a sitting American president has ever stepped foot inside the reclusive estate another handshake before the cameras will historic events to be sure but the jury is still out true Pyongyang has released U._S.. Hostages halted nuclear and until last week missile tests and signaled a willingness to at least talk about denuclearization. It's is a far cry from two years. AGO is an remember trump's foreign fury threats North Korea best not make any more threats to the united rated states they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never ever seen before thank you or rocket man's provocations rocket man should have been handled a long time ago the little rocket man. We're going to do it because we really have. No Oh choice in data one point North Korea's foreign ministry even warned Australia was coming within the range of the nuclear strike that said Pyongyang Anyang has hinted it might resume nuclear and missile tests if the U._S. South Korean military exercises continue well. Let's get an update on North Korea as well as its thirty five year old dictator from N._F._l.. Field She's been in Asia correspondent for the Washington Post and before that the Financial Times terms for several years she's being closer than almost any journalist to the North Korean regime having visited there regularly over the past fifteen years recent book is called the great successor the secret rise and rule of Kim Jong UN as published by John Murray when my colleague Hamish Macdonald Interviewed Food and a few weeks ago I actually rushed to the bookstore and I bought a copy of it and I have to say it's an absolutely outstanding book. Anna welcome to between the lines are thank you very much. Tell them what a great introduction. Don't do it often but it's very good now. Pyongyang's last nuclear test was nearly two years ago it lasts launched a long range missile all in November two thousand Seventeen Tissot a few short range weapons since then Donald Trump would say that's that's gripe progress. Isn't it yeah I mean He. I would say that that's great progress. I mean certainly as you said it's a shop change from where we were two years ago but I think this is all very tactical from Kim engines perspective and really he's been in the driver's seat the whole time he has been calling the shots here so through two thousand seventeen he was firing missiles at seemed like every second day he conducted these two nuclear tastes including one that was a demonstrably a hydrogen bomb and then in when he was ready at the end of November two thousand seventeen when he said he'd completed his nuclear program he was signaling that he was ready to. I'm back on this charm offensive that we saw over the course of last year and that's because he feels like he's in a position of strength now he he's showing that he's made astonishing progress with missiles and nuclear weapons and he wants to be seen now as the responsible and respected leader of a nucleus date and of equivalent to Donald Trump and she's paying and let me a potion and that's where we're at now in Washington has made it clear that it wants Pyongyang to make concrete steps steps towards denuclearization before it's willing to as I sanctions that limit North Korea's tried but you know until recently the consensus was that Kim Jong Hoon was was really a madman because he really wanted these nuclear weapons. is He really crazy. He has not crazy he has coldblooded and ruthless but he is definitely not a rational not a nutjob as president trump wants colt him and you know to point to the evidence for that is the simple fact that he he is still in power almost eight years on he's defied all the expectations that he would be too inexperienced and too young to take over this this regime and he's done it by acting in a very rational strategic way <hes> to take control of North Korea so a part of that is embarking on this nuclear program which enabled him to both fend off the outside world as well as kind of a AH show strength internally give the general something to be proud of gives the ordinary people something to be proud of and they are proud of it. North Koreans have told hold me that there are especially proud that have managed to do something that <hes> South Korea and Japan have not been able to do so this is like old pot of his is plan I think and and now the face to of that plan is this charm offensive that we're now into try to be seen as an international statesman to be the <hes> you know normalizing his leadership and coming out into the outside world and most of all now he's turning to the economy and trying to develop L. at North Korea's very very backwards and decrepit economy because he knows that that's where his legitimacy could have trouble that if he is not able to show the people of North Korea that life is getting better under his leadership he may begin to have trouble keeping crowded you along kimes primary goal here is survival but let me put this to you. Anna surely the only way the North Koreans Happens <hes> no way whatsoever that he feels he needs them for his security. <hes> you know when he was taking over just two months before he took over the leadership of North Korea Moammar Gaddafi was dragged out of a ditch and Libya and beaten and killed in a very brutal way that must be seated on Kimberlin's uh-huh brain that this is what happens to a leader who strikes a deal with the United States to give up their nuclear capability so I cannot say anyway he would relinquish everything but I think he may relinquish. Something and I actually think president trump's doing the right thing here. It is time to talk to North Korea because decades needs of isolating North Korea have not solved the problem of isolation has allowed North Korea to develop nuclear weapon so you're in agreement. He said that in the trump era it's clear that the political consensus consensus including in Washington it's come around so trump's view that talking to North Korea is a good thing but could trump shift the consensus further if he decides Washington can actually live with a nuclear North Korea well. I'm not sure that Washington has come round. There are many detractors in Washington and of president trump's approach and many skeptics about denuclearization but I do think that this current phase is the right approach to be taking because we should be engaging with North Korea. There should be some progress here. You know maybe they can't get them to give up his nuclear nuclear weapons that you know they can get him to stop firing them. That could get to stop threatening them. You know if there was more engagement with North Korea the people of North Korea would have more exposure go to the outside world be able to open their eyes to the truce which they get precious little off in North Korea so there are lots of benefits to be had there that you you know not necessarily denuclearization per se that is a very very tough thing to reach but there's a lot of wiggle room between nothing and full utilization so Kim plying trump here. He's he is getting all the attention but he's conceding nothing yeah in many respects. He is playing trump. I mean trump is waxing facing lyrical about Kim jong-un explaining why the human rights abuses talking about how they fell in love assures an opinion that Kim Jong UN does is not share Kim's on pragmatic about it but can learn his won him over without having to do anything at all other than show up. You know it's old style. Dale no substance so the question is how long Kim Jong and can continue to string donald trump along like this. He knows that Donald Donald Trump is a very unconventional American president. He's unlikely to get anybody else like him again. So if Kim Jong UN is going to cut any kind of deal he needs to do it while Donald Trump is power and actually one of the things I discovered in the course of reporting this book was that the North Korean diplomats in New York had actually gone to visit a very very famous Korean fortuneteller in Manhattan to us as president trump would be reelected. That's how concerned they are but how good is the word of the United States because as as you will know the George W Bush administration did a deal with Gaddafi that he relinquishes nuclear program and yet Bush's successor. Obama helped sleet if it's to topple Gadhafi well. That's why I think that Kim Jong will never give up his nuclear weapons because that's the thing about democracy right we change. Litas is so he cannot be assured than whoever succeeds Donald trump whenever that is will stick to the same line so yeah. He's not giving those up. My guest is n._F._l.. I feel she's the author of the great successor the secret rise and the rule of Kim Jong on intriguingly the U._S. subtitle for the book is the divinely perfect perfect destiny of brilliant comrade Kim Jong Un. Let's turn to your book because clearly this is a secretive and paranoid regime that makes it very difficult to find reliable information about king John on now based on your research including interviews with defectors and members of the family. What can can you tell us about Kim. Yeah I sit out to talk to every person who never met him are to be able to put together this portrait of him and the picture that emerged this child is person who lived such an ebb normal antisocial life came from such a dysfunctional family emily. There's really no way he could've turned out any differently from the ruthless person we see before us today as a when he it was growing up in North Korea's little princeling he lived a life of absolute luxury but also of isolation in these royal compounds that scattered around North Korea he had xbox games or whatever the equivalent was then and imported food and watched movies and and his own zoo his father had a car adapted for him so you could drive it when he was a small child so he wanted for nothing except for friends he had no friends he did not go to school. He had a Tutu came to the house. He didn't even know his half siblings from his father's other relationships so he he just had his only tuneful siblings. That's only at to play within that led him to latch onto anybody he could and one of the people who became a kind of playmates inmates to him when he was seven years old was this Japanese Sushi chef who I interviewed several times in Japan and he had gone into the household there and Kim John had let sean to him and he used to the shift used to take him fishing and flying kites and they listen to Whitney Houston on the shapes Walkman way back when in an <hes> you know he he really was starved for company and so then at the age of twelve he went to the Swiss capital of burn to go to school there and the idea there was that he should be able to live something of a normal life so he did go to school. He did live you know as the son of a diplomat so he was able to have friends and enjoy going swimming in the French Riviera and eating pizza in Italy and all these kinds of things that an expect hidden Switzerland's can enjoy but even there he struggled partly because of language <hes> festival studied in

Walmart raises U.S. tobacco purchase age to 21 starting in July

"WalMart is going to increase the minimum age to buy tobacco products to twenty one years old starting on July first that is according to a letter that they sent to the FDA.

If you keep going north through the Bronx, the next thing you hit is Westchester county. New York with great towns, you'll hit first on the road like Yonkers and new Rochelle. But if you keep going going north going deeper into sprawling Westchester county, New York, you will eventually get to a place called Bedford. And Bedford New York is pretty I have been there. It's a nice part of the state of New York. It's a nice part of the country. Bedford also has some interesting historic sites. It's got a place called stepping stones this home.

Not far from there is the massive Bedford hills correctional facility, which is actually why I have been to Bedford New York. I used to work on prison reform issues in a previous life. So I have been to that prison. It's the only maximum security women's prison in the New York state correctional system Bedford New York was also briefly the focus of national and even international attention in two thousand nine when. Then Libyan dictator Moammar khadafy made plans to travel to the annual meeting of the UN general assembly. He sent a large advance party to pitch him a tent on the grounds of an estate in Bedford New York, literally they're going to pitch a tent on the lawn of that estate and Qaddafi and his entourage plan to stay in that tent while he was in New York visiting the UN general assembly that was the plan until town officials in Bedford decided they were not into that idea at all they sent somebody from the town over to inspect like the the extension cords and the other little temporary electrical connections. They had set up to service Kadhafi's would be living quarters in that tent on the lawn and the town upon inspecting, those electrical facilities issued a stop work order. So even though the Libyan government rented that place for him, the Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi never actually ended up staying in that. On that lawn at that estate in Bedford New York, but the specific location of that weird three days sort of small scale diplomatic crisis over Moammar Gaddafi in his extension cords the specific location of that. In Bedford New York was a place called seven springs that was that was the estate where it we're Qaddafi plan to stay on the lawn at the time of that Qaddafi controversy. Seven springs was owned ended is still owned today by president Donald J Trump. And that tonight is where we get to the crime part of this story, the maybe crime part, or at least the crime question this property in Bedford New York seven springs as you can see it's big mansion, it's just over two hundred acres. Mr. Trump bought the property in nineteen ninety-five when Trump bought it in one thousand nine hundred five he paid seven point five million dollars for it. And there's good evidence reliable public records evidence that that property that's silver that seven springs property has appreciated nicely over time..

Muslims Are Having A Hollywood Moment

"Is changing on American television and online streaming services. There are more Muslim characters and more nuanced portrayals of Muslim communities NPR's Leila Fadel starts to story on set in Los Angeles. It's one of the last days of taping for a new web series called east of LA brea, all ROY. It's a show about being your twenties and figuring out life, and it's told through two main characters roommates who are Muslim, but that's not the entirety of their storylines says Samir Gardezi, the creator of the show it's about paying rent. You know, having a dead end job. I'm having issues with you know, your your family life going to families the first project from powder cake, the company founded by director writer and actor Paul fig known for films like bridesmaids and the recent Ghostbusters east of LA brea follows the friendship of two women a black Muslim and Bangladeshi American will slump in gentrifying, Los Angeles Gardezi says, it's one American Muslim story. There's so many different versions, and my hope would be that everyone gets a shot that tell their version of a Muslim Americans story. So it doesn't feel like, oh, this is the one show that needs to make it all the way. We had to the next location for taping an LA mosque the scene deals with racism black Muslims, sometimes face within Muslim communities. The character. I show Hudson played by Geoffrey Maya is praying when her phone starts ringing with a song like this guy. You gain the director tells the other actors how to react and ladies look at her little shady in the next scene. A woman skull Tessin, assuming she's a recent convert and tells her her prayer doesn't count. We have lessons every Thursday one in conflict with it's something that happens an immigrant Muslim, assuming she knows better. And it's one way the show explores identity, and he's still brea creator Samir Gardezi says he's glad there are more projects involving Muslims. But he says there isn't going to be one breakout moment, but hopefully, there will be many moments and the more stuff that's out there, even the bad stuff. The better. That's that is the flexibility and the privilege that I think white communities is that they're allowed to fail and Hollywood and no one really bad tonight. It's like, okay. It's okay. You can you can jump back up and here let's throw millions of dollars again for you to do your next project. So that's the point that we have to get to. It's a struggle a lot of communities of color and minorities face in Hollywood, the two thousand eighteen Hollywood diversity report from UCLA found that despite progress minorities are still under a presented in key jobs from lead actors to director. Two writers right now, there's an appetite for shows about Muslims in parts because Muslim writers like our daisy who's written on modern family and outsourced are creating their own content and their support for it. He got a grant from pop culture collaborative to create the series and some of the interest is Hollywood reacting to anti-muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment from Donald Trump after he announced his candidacy in two thousand fifteen the Hollywood bureau of the Muslim public Affairs Council got a lot more popular the phones were ringing off the hook that sue Abadie. She leaves the bureau and consults with studios and production companies on creating more authentic Muslim characters were up against decades of storytelling. That is inaccurate many times that is racist often and very stereotypical among the tropes women are chattel and don't have identities or Muslims only portrayed as the gas station owner or the taxi driver Obeidi says, it's an uphill battle. But today the list of characters on mainstream television. In is longer than she's ever seen a Muslim third on Grey's anatomy, a superhero on DC legends of tomorrow, a LGBTQ hijab e Muslim on on the bowl type a pork loving alcohol. Drinking Muslim on master of none. When writers come to her for advice. Obeidi reminds them that these Muslim characters might be the only Muslim some people ever meet. She tries to help them. Get the language, right? Like scripts that used the term alot Akhbar, which means God is great. So you've seen many TV and film projects that have LA walkabout being used in very violent scenes how baiting a Goshi it's studios to try to get them to change it translated or offset it with happy scenes like saying God is great at a wedding or a dinner party because for Muslims. It's a beautiful phrase portrayed as ugly. You know? So someone Sears hook bud when they're dining out. And all of a sudden, you know, they're calling nine one one because they think of family is doing. Something bad. When all they're saying is God that was a damn good meal hawk bud. And I've eighties excited by many of the projects now being written by and about Muslims for large audiences. There's soons eight a Palestinian American comic with cerebral palsy writing an autobiographical sitcom for ABC Moammar a comic with the recent Netflix special and Rami Yousef who I met on a night. He's headlining at the Hollywood, improv. He jokes about how in L A's. Suddenly people think Islam is cool juice shot of getting some juices ten song. It's woman I'm telling her about Ramadan. And you know, she works in my God that sounds so I wanted to do with this weekend. She said Coachella. The New Jersey native is following in the path of many comics who've gone from stand up to sitcom like Seinfeld. Rami Yousef is writing ten episodes of show cult Rami for Hulu it will reflect who use of is in gypsy in American a practicing Muslim who like most people wrestles with trying to be good after a stand up performance. He jokes about how he and his friends approach religion a little like a menu. We call it a LA carte where we're all kind of just picking and choosing like wool. This is my deal with God helps Rami reflects how all kinds of people have their deal with God. I like to get dark. I like to get weird. I like to get uncomfortable. And I feel like when an immigrant family, or when a family that is maybe, you know, group that's not well represented when people try and put them on television. They go out of their way to make them. Look amazing and look perfect his show do that. I just was really excited about the idea of making Muslims. Look imperfect and not create something that was like some PR thing, but create something that was you know, really just a realistic portrayal of what we go through. How we are. He says that people connect with others when they see their flaws not when their hero of villain or exactly like everyone else

Hundreds of prisoners escape amid chaos in Libyan capital

"To. Libya now and a country in the throes of terrible conflict there, have, been renewed clashes between rival groups in the capital Tripoli casting serious doubt as to whether the, war-wracked country is ready to hold planned elections later this year there is an official u n backed government known as the g. a. the government of national accord. And a rival government both have militia fighting on their behalf Nubia is of course where many migrants end up hoping to make the journey to Europe and some migrants have been caught up in this fighting and four hundred prisoners many. Who were supporters of Moammar Gadhafi have escaped from a prison I've been speaking to Fawad Gerges from the London School of economics, where he is professor of Middle Eastern politics and international relations not only four hundred prisoners. Have escaped hundreds of illegal immigrants and Tripoli were let go the authorities have made Clear they cannot protect them they cannot feed him there's chaos all of his city is. Not even a single neighborhood of Tripoli that has not really been, hit, by missiles it seems to me it's all out war but the most important point to keep, in mind is that the UN recognized government seems to have lost control of its own forces that is the militias under the control of the UN legitimate government. Basically is waging a war against the government itself and this tells you about the complexity and how dangerous and how grave the security situation is in Tripoli outside Tripoli as well so you'll you'll suggesting that some local militias who've been. Supporting the government of national accord have we've seen a lot of fighting between those militias and the militias of the alternative government, those militias have now turned against the government of national accord yes some of them in. The brigade number seven Which used to. Be the. Spearhead the national accord government now seems to be waging war against some of the forces still under the control. Of the national accord government the only word. Really that basically captures the essence at what's happening in Tripoli sky us no one seems to be in control the militias are changing. Alliances the hour and no longer the so-called Islamist and. Nationalist and neutral labels don't make any sense at all you. Have war in Tripoli you also have major fighting's in Donna you also have major fighting in other parts, of the country might. Fear and I hope I am wrong is that what we are witnessing really is a. Spark that could really plunge Libya into allow because it seems to me fighting spreading to most. Parts of Libya and militias are taking action into their own. Hands, everything that you'll suggesting seems to. Also point Due to the fact that the government of national accord declaring a. State of emergency is is somehow meaningless unless there is a call for active external intervention. Of some sort sadly the ceasefire which. The national government has called for really did not last more than an hour no one is listening to the national government the national. Accord government does not really. Seem to have the authority and the. Forces to basically impose order militias coalescing against each other and against basically imagine and real enemies fighting spread. All over Tripoli prisons refugee centres who is becoming various and yes it seems to me that only the UN and a force organized by the UN could impose order but I doubt it very much whether the. United Nations is basically willing and capable of Intervening in this, chaotic scene significant is, it that the four hundred prisoners who were held at the islands ARA prison who are supporters of the late Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi how significant is it that they are now on the news it's very significant because, this is not just a separate piece of information you're talking about the son of the cycle Islam. Is positioning himself to become the leader leave. Yet he has many allies in Libyan outside Libya in Africa and the Arab world people are saying that he is the only leader who's capable basically a bringing order into Libya but we should not, really make a, big deal out of the escape, of the four hundred political prisoners because hundreds of illegal refugees have also been released by the authorities. Themselves in the meantime it seems to me the danger is for civilians because missiles based Basically being fired all over Tripoli and this is a city that's inhabited by one or two million.

Watch Obtain government documents that show the US government was quite has quietly spent millions of taxpayer dollars to stabilize the democratically elected center right government, of, Macedonia. By, colluding with left-wing billionaire George Soros yeah we talked about this. When it was going down, as well indeed Obama's ambassador to Macedonia Jeff Bailey worked to funnel millions of dollars. From the State Department in US aid. That's. That you USA slash United Nations crew the groups created by Soros which recorded Judicial Watch, working to overthrow the conservative, government Yeah that's because they didn't like the fact, that it, was a center right they were trying to finance, a left wing agenda let's go to Libya two. Thousand eleven and there's, more to this a lot more, to this? Detail in Macedonia we'll let. You dig in but just the fact that this is happening and it is not only happening it is evidenced it is sourced out it is documented how is it that the federal government hasn't come down under let's, say, the. Watchful, eye of John bainer and or Paul Ryan and said you. Know we're going to look, into this and after all we're the ones who write the check on this so. In other words they have bought on. Their. Hands don't they that would be the swamp that would be the Republican swamp party Libya two, thousand eleven Obama and secretary of state. Hillary Clinton not. Only inter- interfere politically in Libya but military LA's well militarily? As well, by orchestrating a series of policies designed to remove Moammar Gadhafi from, power while, it would be a stretch to call call Qaddafi, US ally he was cooperating with USA and fighting. Islamic extremists at it, turned over all of his weapons, of mass? Destructions to destruction to American. Officials western investment was flowing into Libya Country was becoming more westernized Emo certainly no. Longer a threat to the US All that vanished when Hillary. Clinton Samantha power Susan Rice ordered the bombing the turn into a terrorist paradise one explanation for the new abrupt tack on Libya was that Qaddafi was a rival to the Saudis over the leadership of the Islamic faith. Since the. Saudis have contributed at least ten million dollars, to here we go, hang on you know what I gotta get the right Sandra. For this one. Hang at at least ten million, dollars to is it here here we go The Clinton foundation the, Saudis contributed ten million to the Clinton, foundation and, saw Moammar, Kadhafi as a. Arrival so secretary Clinton had as. Usual a money motive to intervene in Libya the opposition to Qadhafi's regime was led by the Libyan transitional national council whose leaders include many radical Muslims such as Abdul Hakim Bahamas because also headed the Al Qaeda affiliate. Called the. Libyan Islam ick fighting group which was designated, a terrorist organization by, the State Department so there you go now again there's more.

"Quote unquote rapid denuclearization is that a realistic goal i mean let's just say even as an intellectual exercise is that possible it is not in any scenario it will be a matter of years before north korea is free up nuclear weapons there are technical reasons for that it takes time to obtain these weapons diffuse them and above all to ensure that you've got all of them for north korea to prove that they have given us the entire inventory and then secondly as a matter of political reality highly unlikely in my view the kim jong un we'll give up his nuclear weapons he might allow them to be inspected but he will certainly demand for a period of years access to nuclear weapons because he fears if he gives them up you will meet the same fate as moammar kadhafi sodom hussein and others who have given up weapons of mass destruction so look for this problem to stretch out before we let you go may i ask you what's your overall sense of what this meeting means to the world i think there is a seventy percent chance we can ultimately negotiate a fairly positive outcome here i think there is about a twenty percent chance that will slip back into the old ways of doing business which is kind of the history we've been excited before about potential agreements with north korea none have come to fruition and then my last ten percent is kind of the dark side of the spectrum which is that this breaks down completely and in frustration and anger one side or the other actually commences hostilities low percentage but very dark end of the spectrum so let's focus on that seventy percent potential positive year i'm cautiously optimistic that's admiral james to rita's he previously served as supreme allied commander of nato currently he's serving as dean of the fletcher school of diplomacy attempts university admiral thank you so much for speaking with us thank you.
