Update On The Leadership Conference In Sweden
"The world is ripe and ready for restarting and looking ahead. So where better to get a clear and uninterrupted view than from the eastern Swiss Alps and that is the setting for the chiefs. Monaco's. Conference which welcomes visionaries, founders and industry leaders for look ahead how business and indeed the whole world could move forward from here well. Is, tyler lay and he students all through the day's event at Subaru in summer. It's and I'm delighted to say he's taken a moment out of the conference to join us now to tell us what is happening where he is tyler apart from the obvious attraction from the chairlift right to an Alpine dinner, it must feel good to bring people together again. Good afternoon. Good afternoon Emma absolutely, and I think that has been one of the probably. Comment people just feel so good to be out in the world again and just meeting people in a setting which feels pretty normal I. I don't think there's much going on here that would make you think otherwise that we are still in in the midst of course cases rising in Europe, we have Orrin teams being imposed and and and borders also going up as well. So I I think that is. One of the people are just happy to be together and be listening to great ideas and and and I think also to be challenged. A little bit as well. We'll Tennessee little bit more about these challenges because people are coming together facing momentous challenges. What is it the world trying to focus on here? Well number, we just had a failed bomb nora failed bomb is the CEO of vitro. Of course, one of the world's most respected design brands I imagine in many many listeners right now are right likely sitting on a beatrice AU faux or chair or stool or in front of a desk. Here's a business, which is which is completely focused on the topic of what is going to happen to our city centers you know will work from home account for fifty percent of the workforce is going to be twenty percent. So we tackle that issue. It. With her and it was interesting. You know she was talking about are we may be moving into a world of spoke Yes. They'll be a main office in a city that will there almost almost More like owned and operated co working spaces where people come together. So that was one topic but then we just had a our he's the head of the the intermeshed. With the Red Cross and the and he was looking at at the current crises. The fact that we have a pandemic Emma but of course, get thirty messy parts of the world is he talks about this hasn't gone away and he's just a literally almost fresh off the plane from a mission in Mali, And Burkina into Hell region. What I find interesting is is the names of the people you've gathered that. We oversee have world of of of of vitro, but then. We have the head of security policy in the Swiss Federal Department of Defence Civil Protection and sport you mentioned now we have the head of the red. Cross. These are figures from the world of dealing with emergencies. Does that reflect the kind of times that we're in? Will it does because you're going to have an informed view about about risk and where the world is going. Then I think you do need people who are at the pointy end that that point he and might be how is a small but very economically successful. Country like Switzerland, how is it going to navigate geopolitical issues that wide Switzerland potentially need forty new fighter aircraft at a time when people talk of drones and and country, which is known as being neutral, and at the same time, you also want to hear from someone who's the head of risk for one of the biggest banks who can of course, apply some of these elements as well to a of. Course, the end consumer, the person who wants to go in byproducts from that that bank and how does that impact your day to day? How are we able to look ahead at the moment I mean is what we're talking about today stuff that we need to deal with at that pointy end in the next six months to one year or is there any sense yet that people can sink a little further ahead? Well I think actually North Alabama interesting because someone else oppose a similar question about short-term. What are you doing right now with marketing just how do you look at advertising? How do you promote a brand right now how do you stay top of mind and then what you do long term and her response with where we're a family company from Basel we have time and and so of course, we continue to develop an invest in great furniture and we and we take we take a long-term view. And yes you also have to be mindful of of the realities of up today as well. I mean is she's a little later on the conference to be talking about. The chiefs as a future when you talk about sustainability. And yesterday, the president of the European commissioners of a funder line was saying that we will rebuild our way out as a covert pundit DEMOC following an entirely green agenda. But when you have things like you know you're orderbook isn't as full as it should be your staff coming back from furlough and you're thinking, how am I going to make it through the next six months and people are saying actually you need to be green a you need to think about this you need to think about that. The priorities become quite quite challenging they. Absolutely. And I think that you know that that is one of the topics I mean, how much does you could talk about sustainability all you want but you know does. Your does your program, which of course has the best intentions is that we need to take a back seat for because you know that was going to involve retooling your factory. You knew that it was going to actually mean of course, upping the prices or accepting a more expensive supply chain, and maybe that has to get not kicking the grass necessarily, but it maybe has to drift out maybe three years I according to your plan and i. think that is also something we've heard you today is well, if if you're going to do these things aren't easy a lot of his. Let's walk at first before we talk and try to either talk green credentials are sustainability agenda and I think actually on that probably the one thing that I think is really coming out of the conference so far I'm as is. Being a by the let's let's let's invest in things that last And it really interesting to hear. You have MS failed I'm talking about you know if you go and buy an eames chair and I believe you're probably sitting in an email chair right now if I know it studio you're in. Those comes with a thirty year guarantee. Extraordinary and you know that has to be now and again you know is the entire chair perfectly sustainable no but it's not going to be in in five years either it's absolutely not in it's been comfortable for very long time finally looking into this afternoon. You're taking the floor talking to us about a few things that have caught your eye that you like and that if it's inspired you I mean we we have to be lifted out of this somehow what are you talking about them? Well. After lunch I I do a spin around the world and of course, the look at some things that yeah. Basic things that I that I experienced in everyday life, which which I think are are interesting that we we might need we might need more of so and I think probably one thing I was going to slide them. And you'll appreciate this. There's a lot of Austria and they're the world maybe needs a little bit. You know even though of course I'm standing in Switzerland at the moment. But if I if I look across the the mountains look across the border I know that Austria lies beyond and there's definitely whether it's brands whether it's the urban interventions that the world needs a little bit more Austria it full of wisdom of real and I'm just Sitting next to our affairs at a Christian mccue is half Australian I've never seen warranties thumbs up in all my days time. Thank you so much.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Resigns Due To Poor Health
"In a parallel universe where things proceed more or less according to plan Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Albay is basking in the glow endowed by triumphant Tokyo Olympics. The games however postponed a while ago for reasons requiring no reiteration, and it now appears that Shinzo Abe's victory lap has also been canceled obey Japan's longest-serving Prime Minister has announced that he is to stand down for health reasons he offered the Japanese people, his apologies for failing to complete his term I'm joined first of all by Monaco Tokyo Bureau Chief Funeral Wilson. Is this announcement is surprise. Well, everybody knows that Shinzo up as being well, it's been rumored for long time. We who's been in hospital a couple of times in the last fortnight. So that's not the surprise I. Think the rapid resignation did come as a surprise to many people including people quite close to you know there was a Cabinet Office meeting this morning and I think that really. has taken a lot of journalists who follow the story pretty closely by surprise when he explained why he said simply that you know he's he's had a recurring bout of. Ulcerative colitis which he's had since he was a teenager, he said it's not going to get better without some serious medication and you felt that that made it impossible for him to continue. Is there any cause at all to be cynical about this? It's not untidily on heard of four politicians for whom things are not going well to plead ill health. No doubt people will say that I mean his excuse for the timing was that. It's a corona virus pandemic. We all know that he said number going down slightly for winter is coming and going to be another. Whatever wave we're up to. There's also going to be seasonal flu and he felt that it was time to to pass the baton. You know you've got a new diet sessions coming up possible reshuffle. It just was a very packed schedule ahead and he said that he just felt his health was not to it and he wouldn't be doing right by the Japanese people he stayed in his position. How Japanese media generally reporting this? What kind of tone does the coverage of? Well I. Think it's. Absolutely blanket coverage his speech was live everywhere. I think, yes, we had to notice surprise. You know they say it's a sad fact in politics that once you've announced your resignation, the big discussion as well who's going to take over so that's really where it's going. Now I think the analysis about his legacy and he was asked about his legacy actually the press conference. And he was quite frank about that. That that will come in the next few days. But at the moment, the big big issue is who's going to take over him. He's from him. He said he'll stay in power until somebody takes over and I think they're now you know trying to quickly get some kind of election together it may not be conventional Lt P. Presidential election may not involve all the local Party members. It might just be the Diet members, the two houses and So that's that's the big question who's going to take over the does kinda preempt. The final question I was going to put to you do we actually know yet? The likeliest next Prime Minister of Japan. Well hundred we don't there lots of candidates, lots of potential Kansas pluses and minuses to all of them I think a lot of people look looking at some very, very reliable solid candidates, Yoshihiko suge who's been chief cabinet secretary absolutely loyal up a stalwart for years he seen as a safe pair of hands and heavily being backed by the LP secretary general Mr Nikai who's WHO's extremely Influential behind the scenes, his name won't be known too many people but he's very very important. He's one of the names you've got Fumio Kishida policy chief of the L.. DP? He's been a foreign minister. He may be a little bit considered a bit too dovish. They said bit too soft on some of the constitutional issues on China and Ibar who has been a longtime rival of. Shinzo Abbas. Maybe. This will finally be his time. People are saying he has a loss of local of grassroots support and he he could finally see his moment. Now
The Democratic National Convention Was Virtual
"And we're crossing to the United States. Now for date on the Democratic Party's National Convention this year's event was a virtual affair. Monaco's US election correspondent. Tomas. Lewis stayed up late so you didn't have to. My honor to represent Milwaukee in Congress into kickoff. The Twenty Twenty Democratic convention. Well this first ever totally virtual convention, an opening night of major party's convention. There is certainly a a slightly surreal add proceedings. The reality of watching a speaker on stage in front of a roaring crowd is really quite different to watching a series of speakers speaking directly to you through the camera lens to those viewers sitting at home, and there were some moments of real poignancy. Perhaps the most notable among them were the brothers of George Floyd who spoke about the need to end police brutality and racial injustice in the US. Is the hidden legacy for our brother. Josh should be allowed today Brianna Taylor should be alive today a mart arbor should lose the torture of a man who had voted for Donald Trump but had succumbed to the corona. Virus. The coronavirus has made it clear that there are two Americas. America that Donald Trump lives in and the America that my father died in the human stories as well. Videos posted from voters around the country which I think really effective in fulfilling the slogan of the Democratic Convention, which is we the people and I think that is what Joe Biden's campaign in the Democrats trying to get across in this convention is that this is a party for everyone and this election really is an election of consequence for everyone to no matter who you vote for. The most notable speeches of the evening came first from Bernie Sanders John Hayden's former rival for the presidency. Our campaign ended several months ago. But our movement continues at is getting stronger every day. Many of the ideas we fought for that just a few years ago were considered radical on now mainstream denise sanders have been criticized at the start of the campaign for not really doing much to quell the movie trio lakeside of his support, a pretty unflinching in their criticism. Those who are running against Bernie Sanders. He did quite a lot quite explicitly to try and bridge the gap between the Progressive Side of the Party and the more moderate more centrist side. He said that he was willing to work with anybody with Republicans conservatives, moderate Democrats and progressives to saying that to vote Joe Biden in would be the most crucial part of furthering the progressive. Agenda and he listed some of the policy pints in quite some detail that he said spoke to a progressive agenda but were Joe Biden's policy pilots together we must build a nation that is more equitable, more compassionate and more inclusive. Now, it'd be interesting to see how much sway that will cut with a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters whether the anger they felt in two thousand. Sixteen when he lost the nomination to Hillary Clinton this kind of sense of betrayal they fell to the Democratic Party at having allegedly skewed vote towards Hillary Clinton instead of Bernie. Sanders. We'll see how potent ideas this time around but the final speech of the night came from the former first lady Michelle. Obama really was an extraordinary speech is whenever we look to this White House. For some leadership or consolation or any semblance of steadiness what we get instead is chaos division was sitting presumably in a corner of her home in her living room and the speech really covered a huge range of topics. She she offered a riff on a very famous phrase she gave at the Convention for years ago. A lot of people have asked me when others are going Solo. Does going high still really work. My ass you went on to be explicit about what she meant in that she said that by going hi, it's not just about saying good things were thinking good things that actually have to act. You have to explain you have to debate. You have to be proactive and being engaged with your neighbors and those in your communities and it's really rose to a crescendo being incredibly personal. You know that I tell you exactly what I'm feeling no, I hate politics. But you also know that I care about this nation. I really very effective. It was one of those speeches again, sort of made slightly surreal by the fact that this is a very prominent, very popular person speaking directly to you into your home via the television screen but that actually she managed to pull off this idea that she was I think talking directly to you and that is not something very easy to pull off I. Think it is. A speech that will be cited going forward through the weeks of the campaign by Democratic voters and I. Think it really was the kind of finale if you like of the first night of the democratic. Convention the Democrats were hoping for this is an unprecedented election campaign and a Democratic National Convention like which has never been staged before whether it has the potency when all is said and done. The usual in person conventions whereas the power and the noise of groups voters all gathered together before speakers on the stage remains to be seen but I think there will be much to be taken. The will be positive about the first night of the convention this evening. Tell us. Thank you. That was US election correspondent Thomas Lewis Virtual Convention I imagined Thomas. We'll be tank while virtual work. In. The days and weeks ahead.

We've been talking a lot about Serena Williams we had Sam Clairon last week. but I wanted to get the perspective of a teenager who had a lot of momentum and then it suddenly stopped. So that's a lot of this conversation at the risk of tainting the jury pool this a lovely lovely kid. He is prone to storytelling in a way that most teenagers are not and you just hope he. Never changes. So we talk a little bit about what this year has been like for Free Onic Center. He talks a bit about his unlikely backstory in his unlikely tennis geography we we do not route in the press box zoom call but. It is hard not to like this kid. So without further ADO here from Monaco about to board a flight to the US here is young, Jahic Center I there. Thank. Thank you for. Thank you for spending some time. Good afternoon. No thank you.

A lot better than walk in April but. How how of the last How have you experienced the last six months? What's it's been like for you? Well, when I've been in India wells obviously man. I've been blamed to challenge there and preparing the mass serious. So I've been practicing quite a lot there and everything was fine aunts and normally when something happens. You know like stump players say something in. Oh. And in the locker room and everything was. Will silence and everything, and then one day I don't remember which they. Exactly. They cancelled the tournaments and I think not many players knew that. And from that bond rally. Little bit confused because. We were not sure if we stay for Miami and I was even evangelist in Phoenix Challenger. PHOENIX. And yeah. That was a little bit confusing. So we didn't. We didn't know what to do. Exactly. So we we decided to stay there. a few more days to correct this, and then when when they cancelled Miami, we went back. By. Calm, I came immediately here to Monaco. And with been lockdown quite a long time. I. I bring with me the physical. Coach. That practice at home with him. For, the First Month And then after we started to play tennis a little bit because in Italy, we could round little bit. So we went the back four is like twenty five minutes by car. So with practice the yeah. Not every day but treat three times a week. And Then after two and a half miles of lockdown and. was like no Yeah. Normal practice Twice a day. One day a week off said was quite tough. Obviously, it's tough but You know I think every Blair's missing the competition and the that's like the most. That would what we're missing me personally in Seattle competition because plankton is it's it's okay because it's that what I choose to do in my life and instead what what I like to do. So it's a blank tennis, but we elect last a compensation and hopefully in. Their New York. It's It's going to be good.

But after one, hundred, twenty, eight episodes who the hell's counting you know I can't keep track a lot of beer my friend, a lot of beer. For Beard's we try to do a different one every night, but I'm probably going to start running out of him after some point. All right. Frank.

We've had audio people we've had musicians we've had directors and producers. We've had a lot of different people on the show. So. Give us a bit of a background about what you do where you work how long you've been there and you know anything else. You'd think people would enjoy hearing about you your job and and you know we could get into some fun stories and after that well, I've been at Warner Brothers studios for thirty years. This is my thirtieth year. Wait thirty, thirty years. They don't give people that much time for murder. Thirty years and I actually in the summertime I keep everybody. Cool. So we take care of the stages we take care of the office buildings we take our sound stages I I did Ellen for like ten years controlling her temperature I in the wintertime we take care of the heat keep everybody warm and that's what I've been doing for the last thirty years. Yeah and you've been I. Know You've been nights for a long time and that's like when people would shoot most often or yes. A lot of long hours Jim I worked seventeen years at night and I remember for example when. Brooke Shields had her pilot suddenly. Susan. On bring anybody remembers that show. But yeah, I remember that show. Yeah. So I remember they shot the pilot and then they wanted to recast one of the actors it's been. So long I don't remember but I stay two weeks till six in the morning. A Lot. That's one thing about working nights in these shows you're gonNA. Stay a long time with brick shields the one in like blue lagoon the. And Blue Lagoon she was. Married to a Agassi the tennis player. Okay. And I remember seeing him a lot on the stage always had his tennis racket in the stage. It was funny. He always used to swinging inside the stage while she was shooting was. The hitting hitting a ball just swinging it no wants a hit a ball. He was just swinging. It is practicing I. Guess that was like in his prime I. Guess. Yeah whenever you need to I guess it's like a gull for just dislike shoot blanks, golf balls or something you know exactly but no, but he was he was really cool and. One thing about working in, Hollywood, is you work a lot of hours, lots of our. Our friends and West Wing and they'd be there to four or five and Gilmore Girls I. Mean I was there to four or five in the morning every single night especially like well, for example, if they have a call time at six on Monday, two days going to be eight o'clock and then Wednesday is going to be ten o'clock and then Thursday's going to be you know noon and then Friday comes and their start time is to always do fourteen hours usually. So, I was there like every Friday I knew was there till four or five or six in the morning? And the actors and everybody there the whole time there the whole time. To work harder something and it's like a hard work. Well, it is. It is very hard because I remember once Gilmore girls were shooting. So I went over to my buddy and he was a sound engineer, the sound mixer at the time and I said Hey much longer got goes we'll be done eleven o'clock. So I go over there eleven o'clock he goes now we're still shooting I ended up staying till five in the morning. One of the actors couldn't get his line and it was very basic line and I remember he. Producer. He goes. Okay that's it. We're done just printed whatever it takes. That's good enough. We're going home I was there to five in the morning they're supposed to wrap at ten thirty. In the morning. That's good enough. That's what he said. He was just so fed up because it kid couldn't get his line I mean it was like and everybody on the show was really getting frustrated and they said that's it. That's enough. I mean, I'm like craft, service and food and everything is going the whole night. Oh Jeez Jim off while let's see friends used to ship in a while when friends had their audience. I think it was on Friday or Thursday it's been so long but they would ship in philly cheese steaks from. Chicago Chicago like pizza from. The.

Oh has some food Chinese food. philly cheese steaks You you'd be surprised what kind of food they had some of these shows and this is friends. This is friends Oh man, and so the main reason you're staying so you can help shut down the stage at when everything's over is with the heat and air conditioning. Well, you gotTA consider though With the middle of the summertime, these stages with these lights before they had led lights, they didn't have led now they got led lights that run a lot cooler than the old lights used to run. But yeah, those stages the gut to one hundred degrees if the air was a non Oh man because of the lighting. Yes. Because of the lighting I'm not exaggerating wow. Yeah it they'll stages got hot. So we would have I'd have all the pump until they were done. I couldn't leave until they.

Had this scroll through all my other videos to find out a comparable to find out that they were doing good something. We've got some cool ally interesting news about The McLaren announced that well, the Gordon Murray announcement that we wanted to get into. So we sort of got this job. So we can I hit that before we get started. Just, another word from our friends at Dodd's it's A. IT'S A it's time for dodge power dollars and that means for every horse power. You get ten dollars off your purchase on dodge challenger Dodge Charger and Dodge Durango come in and save dodge power dollars for pretty sweet deal. So as we As we are sitting down to record this.

With Dario Franceschini taking a touring ordinary designs during Gordon, Murray on a moto and they took the wraps off this car and It's it's. It's pretty it's pretty cool. Gordon Murray's thing has always bands. About lightweight and from this car from. The initial design in his head all the way up to what it is. Now he said a goal of no more than one thousand kilos in weight and he hit nine eighty I believe puts it somewhere around twenty one, hundred, seventy, maybe twenty one, hundred, seventy, four pounds. This is extremely lightweight way in in. Today's world. Under twenty two hundred pounds. Of. A modern day car it. The Way to do that. And explain it when you go and you watch the videos, you read the press about it. Is. You have to design this thing from the ground up. With weight savings in mind every single step of the way, the the CAR IS MONACO CARBON FIBRE the entire bodies carbon fibre everything. That could be carbon. Fibre is carbon fiber of. The the engine he went to Cosworth and said, it needs to be naturally aspirated. It needs to be the twelve.

L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club
"Hollywood Tangalle to the shots or Mo monty set to become a members only hotel by twenty twenty, one, the owner Andrey Bellagio announced last week his plan studer and the ninety one year old hotel into an even more exclusive place Monaco's own report bounds who is no stranger to drink or two at the chateau school yards pass more on this story. Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau.

Jay Z. and beyond say three parties, the Chateau Vanity Fez bash was held that all these people were following the lead of Jean. Harlow Arrow Flynn Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart who used his labyrinth of rooms, terraces, bungalows, and conveniently dense foliage to conduct love affairs track notoriety while the angry spouses and nosy gossip columnists. architecturally, the Chateau is a weird dark gothic thing but as far more in common with Hollywood. With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar. He was unsanitary green light, considered it a waste to be. So, you could become a member why not? You could just turn out and smile. Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.

Thailand reports 1 new coronavirus case, no new deaths
"Thailand has a population of seventy million yet. The country has recorded fewer than three thousand, two hundred fifty cases and fifty eight deaths, as of Thursday there had been no cases of transmission for about seven weeks. So how and why has it been sped the full devastation of covid nineteen well to tell us more I'm joined by Monaco's Bank correspondent. gwen were Robinson welcome back as ever. GWENT good to have you on monocle twenty four, so this seems to have been a country sped. Well I mean this is a very good question and it's obsessing. People particularly in this region, it should be said though that. Countries have also done like surprisingly well, including the and Mar Laos Cambodia these are all countries with very very fred the health system, so it's just as well. There were sped. And they were very slow some of them to actually look down, and in fact in the beginning some of the leader, for example in Cambodia was scoffing a little bit like Donald Trump at at the. It, so they were very slow to act and I like a lot of people, although experts will not say it There's very strong theories that he didn't humidity. Do have something to do with it. Clearly Kobe likes cold climates, and does not like warm, but humid climates. You can see in the Middle East in hot areas. They've succumbed quite badly, but that's very dry, so I think there's a theory there, but of course in Thailand with a a sort of. Not exactly a military government, but a government stuff full of former military officers they take great pride in their efficiency under claiming credit because of their excessive caution and This is now a real point of debate about how much it's Thailand prepared to kill it to coney for an obsession which has become an obsession with zero infections, and you know they are understandably proud that there's not been any local transmission for nearly seven weeks, but you can see. The fallout has been immense and the projections for unemployment for example. Example horrendous in fact, even the government's open economic forecasting think tank 'cause predicted eight point four million jobless people as a result of the code lockdown by the end of this year and an economic contraction of eight percent, which is huge, so I think you know, there are some cost-benefit these that really need to be done here, but as a as some people may be with. There's a lot of paranoia about meeting foreigners back into Thailand now. Indeed I mean we've seen some internal disputes within the authorities in Thailand. Resignations of economic ministers there's. Is there a sense that Thailand is very good at coping with stopping the spread of a pandemic, but has rather miss rather underestimated the huge economic damage that this could do. Well, I think you nailed it. With that point, that's right. It's a it's a trade off, and but interestingly the surveys I mean I don't know where the hell they're interviewing these people but the government released a survey last night, claiming of interviewed more than sixteen, hundred or around sixteen hundred ties throughout the country, showing that ninety eight percent of them feel that it is not yet time to let foreign of back in meanwhile, of course, you've got a tourism industry in freefall. Thailand is nearly twenty percent dependent for GDP on tourism and basically close to zero. Zero now they had forty million visitors last year and I think it sort of town around I. Don't know I mean. Nobody's getting in a very few foreigners or allowed him. Of course we enforcing the paranoia. I should've mentioned with the disclosure last week about the sort of very strange visit by an Egyptian military delegation, but promptly landed and took itself off for Jolie to the seaside resort of Rayon and turned out that one or gypsum military officer with infected with Kobe and tracking his movements seems like he went every. Shopping malls entertainment complex. The hotel restaurant. So the government has now tested about six thousand five hundred people in that Rayong area. It's all going into lockdown Ola hotel. The under strict guidelines and shopping malls are closed schools, and that has now spread to the resort area. Poppy are as well and these places that would just reopening after lockdown was lifted and struggling to basically domestic tourists, and now you know they've been set back, but you know if. If polls are believed to can be believed. I, you know it seems that you know. A lot of tides feel that you know they should still be cautious and that would imply that they're supporting the government. Meanwhile as you said, there's a lot of political turmoil and four key economic ministers resigned last week on group, and of course they were ousted following an internal reshuffle of the ruling party leadership and that SORTA quite. I'm not sure they're taking a rap for poor economic management. It's really more I think internal politics, but definitely the new team has a huge job ahead, and interestingly they haven't been very quick to announce the new team. Because apparently they're having a lot of cody getting very credible people to fill those shoes because It's going to be a very tough jaw. Publi. Couldn't Robinson in Bangkok?

British Airways Announces Immediate Retirement of Boeing 747 Fleet
"Airways has just announced this morning a little bit in line with Qantas that effective, almost immediately They're going to be retiring. Their whole fleet of seven forty sevens is currently have thirty one still in operation, which be taken out of the fleet, now of course is because a few passenger numbers and less capacity needed because all of these airlines are very well. They kind of need to get to a point of being carbon neutral they they need. Need to be of good pr, so the older planes get out of the fleets much earlier, but I thought it was exactly that there's still four hundred sixteen flying around the world at the beginning of this month, and I love how many had been manufactured and fifteen, one, thousand, five, hundred, fifty eight from fifty years ago. So when you think one in three of those planes is still in active service is an extraordinary number, and when you think about the seven forty seven hundred. If we want to sort of get a little bit. Nostalgic, there's there's really no other airline air aircraft that that's come close me yesterday. Three Eighty you know came out as as a full length, double decker but when you think about the the golden age of flying, we can go back and look at seven Oh sevens. What those meant to Pan and and and Flying Clippers and concord, but there is something about the seven forty seven as well it was, it was quite democratic to with an airliner of charter charter brands as as much is of course. Some of the world's leading carriers got you around the world. Yes back in the fifties began when the airlines began to say the US. Airlines began to sites by. Can you build us a plane? Maybe that's two and a half times bigger than anything else we currently have. They came up with the Boeing. It was tested in the late sixties. It went into service in nineteen seventy, but there's something about that shape. The court, every kid's imagination you. Remember being young and looking up at the sky and you'd see that, Silhouette. You could be the most useless plane-spotter in the world. You knew what you were saying. And there's something also just was glamorous about the notion that you could go up the spiral staircase and and up in another floor of a plane. And oddly we may have seen double deckers committed with the a three eighty. It doesn't have the glamorous. Double Decker bus. There was something about being in that little secret part at the top, it was almost like being on a private plane attached to a regular commercial flight that was that was glamour, and there was there was kind of sexiness about, and there's something side I mean depending on where we get. Over the coming months I do wonder if there's an opportunity 'cause we've seen Qantas have been looking at. Marketing sort of these these last flights on on on the seven forty seven, and of course they're still other carriers who still have them We'll see move. The Japanese are lens some years ago. They retire the for a lot for all of the same reasons. I mean for the fact that they are gas guzzlers. They don't have the most efficient engines that they they are. They are allowed. There is of course a new generation of a seven forty seven and it seems that the president of the United. States will be getting a few of them, but Do you think that this is all a bit knee-jerk or this is? This goes with the Times or do you think maybe be able? Look at this in a few months? Things improving or maybe we shouldn't have retarded them quite so quickly. Well as we've just said you, you just look how reliable they are. The the they have been evolving crashes in the past, but very rarely for technical reasons or design flaws to the plane and the. Great work is often many than there's. Versions, which is still being used in Kaga, but here Monaco. We've had some great stories. We flew on a seven four seven weeks in Andhra all the way from Tehran to Caracas via Damascus. With with Iran. We went on the emperor's plane. In Japan so the seven four seven has so many kind of extraordinary stores to is sad I think kind of going out service as you said still roughly four hundred. We'll be up
Turkey reconverts Istanbul's Hagia Sophia museum into a mosque
"Eight acres court is expected to announce today that the conversion of Istanbul's world-famous argue severe into a museum almost ninety years ago, it was awful. The decision would pave the way for the building's Restoration Mosque and we'll represent a victory of sorts for president recipe type one, but it may cause anger elsewhere, including in the Kremlin and UNESCO HQ, joining us on the line now is Hannah Lucinda Smith is stumble correspondent of the. Times Hello Hannigan off new thanks for being with US I. Guess this was what we had perhaps predicted nevertheless. Oh, that's not gonNA. Stop a number of people being pretty disappointed with the outcome. Yeah well. Absolutely I mean affair is such a symbol, not just in Turkey or not just in the region in the whole world at points it was built in the sixth century. It was the biggest cathedral in the world. It was the seat of eastern Crescenzi for more than a Millennium and then it's really been kind of the symbol of the struggle for the soul of Istanbul. I guess when the autumns took control of the city in fourteen, fifty three, they converse into a mosque, and then when Kemal Ataturk the first president of the secular republic. Took over the country he then. Signed an order basically deconsecrated intending into museum in nine, hundred thirty four, and that's the status it. It's hard since then, but it is such a powerful symbol for Muslims. Christians and also for the Turks who are really bondage this idea of a second second they sit. It's kind of one of the ultimate symbols of their secular country. Just when you're out, and about as it sounds like you are indeed right now, is this one of these things where people are talking about it, and it's upsetting people, or is it one of these strange things? Actually seems to be much more stark much more controversial through the prism of I'm in London or etc. People looking on from Moscow which maybe we'll come to in a in a minute it does it excise people out in about. March she stood in the courtyard. Safia right now. It is a few Tori style. It's actually quite quite mean that's mostly because of the current virus pandemic coming normally at this time of year that would be crowded with tourists actually took his most visited tourist attraction, but I think the interesting thing. Is that inside Turkey this debate? That's not new. It's been going on for a couple. Couple, of decades, it's a question that sort of comes around quite six. In fact, you know I've I've been in Turkey for seven years. Now is the ton. This is come up in my time here and so there is this of feeling of fatigue I you know this is just the same policy policy again but I think it's undeniable, the for certain positive the Paul is. Very, much behind prison on the move is part of the society would be seen as. A big victory pick symbolic victory, but I think in terms of the kind of. The opposition to it. A lot of that comes from outside country. As you mentioned that the star obviously the Greek government's in holy. They still see Istanbul Constantinople. This is the as the center of Greek Orthodox also the Russian Orthodox Patriarch earlier this week, voiced his objection and of course UNESCO Ted. This is a world heritage sites listed by UNESCO. That's partly because of the The mosaics that were uncovered once this was ten years. In the nineteen th that is. On. The big questions is of course. If this is ten back into a mosque, what will happen to those mosaics depict Christ pizza version married picked him of the apostles. You know seen in, Islam, FIT Is is not allowed inside mosques. So this is the kind of places where the real objections are coming from, but it's quite interesting I'm you know it's? Really doesn't feel like much. Is happening at the moment here high? Sophie, let's see. We got the announcement in June a couple of hours. That's what we're expecting so. Possibly something will happen after that, but it's kind of. Yeah. It's still the same very peaceful, very unique. Is indeed sort of an eerie call just on some of those other international stakeholders. And he'll be watching on. We mentioned already you mentioned the Russian. Orthodox Patriarch of course. What about the relationship mean does this tell us anything about the relationship between assemble in Moscow more broadly, maybe more politically because there's various other sort of proxy disagreements agreements. There's other places Libya that seemed to sort of muddy. The waters is this. Does this need to be to be viewed in that context in your view? Show, I think the relationship with Russia is actually the one thing that might give president or pause for thought on this now what we see as I said before the Greeks are. Very opposed to this the US. State Department might POMPEII stems as well, but you know that's kind of old hat fred when he doesn't really care about. Stoking rows with Greece and with the US. Because he's got huge amounts of disagreements with those countries anyway, but when it comes to Russia, it's been quite an interesting situation in Russia. Turkey for the past five years on one level as you say in Libya also in Syria they're. Backing opposing forces, but at the same time, the personal relationship between two President Putin has gone incredibly close, and in other ways. Russia has been backing sick. I guess trying to woo. Tick to a certain extent away from its more traditional allies in the West, so we've seen for example side of the one hundred defense system. From Russia Turkey we've seen many many pets meetings in about trade and defense mutual security between. One impeach him now. The question is if this. Decision goes ahead and the conversion goes ahead then how much opposition will come from from the Kremlin? Clearly, the Patriarch Russian Orthodox Patriarch. Expressed his opposition. That's to be expected, but we also know that religion plays a big part in Russian. Politics today, so would it. Would it carry on further? The featured does it were? Would President Putin be the next person's kind of expresses displeasure, and how would that affect the relationship Tweeden's? I stopped really great to speak to you and thanks for reporting for us right from the scene of this Hannah Lucinda Smith In estan standard joining us on the briefing Monaco Twenty Four.
Singaporeans vote in snap election under coronavirus cloud
"It's a little after two PM in Singapore reverted to taking part in a snap. General election announced a little over a fortnight ago. The ruling People's Action Party has ruled since independence in. In one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty five, and it is expected to win big again. Even the leader of the country's only elected opposition party in parliament has warned of a wipeout that could see the sitting government win every seat. Well, let's hear now. From Monaco's Asia, editor James Chambers will. The election is due by next year. but everybody knew in Singapore that the government would call an election this year. Year at some points so even before Kovic. Struck, the plan was to to call a general election but back then before the pandemic, the idea was to capitalize on Singapore's economy, because it was still doing well but they could foresee time because of the trade war without would no longer be the case that they were going to try and get the election in before the Economy Turns Sour. And as you mentioned you might, you might have thought that's given the pandemic, and and the fact that Singapore is facing its biggest recession. In decades they have postponed that and perhaps for for next year, but they've gone ahead with its and the strategy now is to I guess play up the crisis I mean the Prime Minister Lisa Lomas, calling this the crisis of generation, and I guess he's appealing to votes. His kind of stick with who you know, stick with the. Because, they've guided Singapore to got to so well since independence so take you know it's not time to gamble now. you know stick with the party that you can depend on? was there any chance that people would take a gamble on anybody else other than the People's Action Party? The People's Action Party as you mentioned, has won every election since independence and we're talking about. Huge majorities. Of the the worst ever done, it was getting sixty percent of the votes. And last year last, sorry, last time around in two thousand fifteen. It got sixty nine percents. So the only question we we're all waiting to see the answer to is how big the wind will be this year the prime minister has been calling on, Singaporean say to give. His party and him a strong mandate which would suggest that there for aiming for something you know above seventy or eighty percent. And that's because because of. The crisis face facing Singapore, but also the party is having this major generational transition the Prime Minister Lien Long. He's the eldest son of the founder of Singapore. Lee Kuan Yew and he's planning to step down. He's sixty eight now. He wants to retire by at least seventy. So this is his last election and he's he's. He wants to be able to hand over his party to this next generation, and you know with a with a good mandate. The I. Guess what the opposition is worried about is is they might get you know wiped out because. He's the prime minister's has made a lot about him. and voters may may rewarding for for the job that he's done since becoming premise in two thousand and four. the opposition in Singapore is is quite weak, even though there are ten opposition parties standing this election, the the major ones really running for about twenty seats out of about ninety three, so it's not as if even if they did well, they could take control of the parliament. But there's there is a quirky quirky system in Singapore. So even if the opposition lost all seats, and they only hold six in the current parliament, even if they lose all their seats, they would then be given some. Because the. Doesn't want to have. Total control. It feels like it needs to have at least some opposition to hold in account in parliament. Otherwise it it ends up in the ridiculous, and this opposition seems to have gotten a little bit personal. Let me talk about this sort of the legacy and the. Family almost family firm that seems to be established. The way that Singapore runs its government, but the strange brother of the prime minister has actually but. Li Yang joined the opposition progress Singapore Party and has openly criticized the way that Lee. Long has handled the coronavirus pandemic also has said that there's a natural aristocracy inside the People's Action Party and it's not great when members of your family decide to. Wash your laundry and public. You're you're exactly right? Mrs Definitely in a case of airing your dirty laundry in public this this kind of family feud in Singapore's first family. The lease in this is this is all come about from after the death of their father I and how they they deal with his his bungalow. legally wanted it to be demolished but it's still standing. Could because the prime minister wants to keep it as as a kind of a almost like a shrine. And the brothers have fallen out, so the younger brother has thrown his support behind this new party. The progressing party is only form last year by a former member of the People's Action Party. So there's a you know a former heavyweight from the people's action. Party is fronting it and it's been supported by younger brother of the prime minister so very very embarrassing for the prime minister. But. It's not expected to have a major impact on the the number of votes that the prime minister and his party gets. It's not something that. You Singaporeans a used to seeing. But. One thing's for sure this isn't going to. This isn't going to bring about the end of of the PAP the the the one question I mentioned that we're all waiting to see just how big the majority is that they get finally It's the news broke overnight. about the death of souls map park won soon I, mean he? He had been tipped as a as a very viable candidate for the twenty twenty two presidential elections. Yes this this news. We're following in Asia last night very closely. and the the police were tipped off to his disappearance by his daughter, because she received quite cryptic message from him on her phone which she then shutoff now he was You know he's been married since two thousand eleven, and he's one of the the big heavyweights in the Democratic Party that the the President Moon jae-in belongs to, and so he was you know. One of the heavy favorites to. To run for to become the next president when Moon Jae steps down. In a few years time so this. Caused a you know a big shot. And Even, though the the circumstances. And the facts are all still up in the air. It is looking like it's It's related to these. Allegations of sexual harassment that was against him the day before by his secretary, and these these allegations are doing the rounds of of social media in in in career. I have seen them myself, but is best not to speak about them right now, but it does feel like, and it just looked like The two are linked. He was a new. He billed himself as a kind of a male feminist and he he did a lot to. Promote women's rights in Korea. So if this turns out to be the case, it's going to be a big. Full, from graceful for him and. It just highlights the the extent of this. Problem in career I, mean the metoo movement of started in the US and it has I guess being overshadowed recently by the black lives matter one, but I mean in in create is a huge issue and if a man like mad park is embroiled in this then it just shows the the extent of the problem and I do hope that it has. The same kind of effect as the black lives, matter. Movement has in getting people to finally kind of talk about this and address it James, chambers. Thank you very much indeed for joining us on monocle. Twenty four stay
Google joins a group of major tech companies in pushing back against Hong Kong’s new security law
"Welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me, Andrew Malone when China imposed a new, security law on Hong Kong it doubtless understood that they would be widespread anger, and perhaps even actual consequences and calculated that the cost to his one it could meet. The bill has now begun to arrive. Several giants have announced that they will pause cooperation with any requests for user data from Hong, Kong police including such behemoths as telegram, Google twitter, facebook and WHATSAPP in a perhaps more dramatic development, voguish video up. TIKTOK has indicated that it will stop operations in Hong Kong, entirely one join with more from Hong Kong by Monaco's Hong. Kong Bureau chief chambers. Joins first of all I was intrigued by this announcement that they would pose cooperation with Hong. Kong's police. Do we know what kind of cooperation was underway before? We don't know exactly and it was quite funny that one of the APPS you didn't mention signal said they would stop cooperating. If only they they'd started cooperating in the first place, and they said they don't hold any data, so they wouldn't have any to handover. So We're not quite sure what kind of data the Hong Kong. Police Force has been requesting from these companies in the past. And what they've said is that they're going to pause any cooperation. In to assess what I guess, what this security bill means, and what what it means if they do handover this kind of data to the police I mean. Loads of people use WHATSAPP and that's. That's got end to end encryption so It's not clear what kind of information you know. Facebook, the owner of what's up. What's sense of what the tech giant's trying to figure out here? Are they acting out of genuine concern at what China is doing, or is this an attempt I guess especially in talks case to be perceived as being on the right side. I think that you could say that that being on the fence right now because they're in the same position as most of us in Hong Kong. We don't really still know what this law. Requires them what it involves. It's a very. Very thin piece of legislation for something as dramatic as a as a national security law in we're talking thirty odd pages and sixty six articles. And in those articles require the the Hong Kong government set up certain bodies, and then those bodies and need to pass certain implementation rules to bring this into being now. Those are starting to come out, so we're starting to see what this might mean. And so one of those rules came out yesterday, which says know police can. Search a premises without a warrant. If it's to do with his National Security Law which has got obviously alarming for a lot of people. So. Companies like facebook and Google that they just waiting to see. What this actually means. And so they don't want to be seen to be handing over. Information right now to the government. If that's going to lead to prosecutions, and as you said, that would definitely leave, leave them on the wrong side of of public opinion at at least outside of China all the tech giant's also concerned with trying to balance that against the prospect of upsetting Beijing. Well know they're all banned in China. The the one tech giant that. Is Absent from that list is apple, and that's the one tech giant that is allowed to operate inside of mainland China. So. This is not a matter of them, not wanting to upset Beijing I think this is more a matter than not wanting to upset bag global audience. Because obviously this. This whole thing has been huge news around the world. And these tech giants have nothing to lose in terms of upsetting. Beijing so I definitely seem see, this is holding onto all pleasing that their audience around the world, and at the end of the day Hong. Kong is a city of seven and a half million people whereas you know, these companies have hundreds of millions of users around the world so. As as we kind of seeing Hong, Kong might just just find bearing the brunt of a lot of these things. You said earlier that you and everybody else in Hong. Kong was still trying to figure out precisely what this new security law is going to mean. Have you noticed that having any direct effect on day to day life already whether that's been in actual implementation or manifestations of at all in reaction to it in terms of protest demonstration etc.. There's been zero protests. I mean this. This seems to be one of those piece of legislation that has. Is having more of an impact. On People's. Minds and their conversations rather than any big physical changes, there'd be no protests, but for the majority of this year because of covid nineteen and they're still not allowed to go ahead. Because of the covid nineteen restrictions, so we'll, we'll have to wait and see if if when those get raised and police, perhaps do grant authority for. Illegal. Protest Rally with huge numbers of people will turn out, but as of today, and since the law came into effect this time almost on last week. It's been very normal on the streets in Hong Kong. Everyone's been going about their business. But there I mean been just news coming out every day. That's just causing more and more alarm like the the the libraries taking books off the shelves to to see whether they fall foul of this security bill and this latest news today that that Tiktok the is is pulling out of Hong, Kong, and pulling its APP off of the APP store. Even, though that's I, that's a bit of a red herring because it is after Chinese. Company and I imagine this is more a corporate strategy than than anything else it does. Continue to to raise alarm bells here, but when you when you go out on the streets. It's it's very. It's like Hong Kong in two thousand eighteen. You know before before all the protests last year, so it appears very normal, but I think the damage being done here is very much in people's minds James Chime busy now Hong Kong Bureau. Thanks for joining us. You're listening to the briefing on monocle twenty. Four.
Hong Kong marks handover anniversary under shadow of security law
"Could Beijing finally getting it away and silencing Hong Kong's democracy protests once and for all the Chinese President Xi Jinping has signed off strict security laws, which critics say will place the likes of the right of free speech and an independent judiciary at risk. The law has already had an effect one of the leading voices in the pro democracy. Movement Joshua Wong said he's left. One protest group what I'm joined by Monocle Asia editor and Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers by Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue Welcome both backed Monaco for twenty four at James, let's begin with you. You are in Hong. Kong whether has been A marking of the twenty three years since British rule ended. What's the atmosphere like today? Yes, what was meant to be called establishment day a day of celebration for Hong Kong returned back to mainland, but for a lot of people here it's a solemn day to protest against. Beijing and usually there's a big march that takes place around three PM Hong Kong time in about an hour and leave from Victoria in Causeway Bay and on March to the government headquarters that hasn't been given permission to go ahead to see the police because of the COVID, nineteen restrictions but there are people starting to gather in Causeway Bay. and the police have already made their first arrest under this new national security bill. On the question, we're all asking waiting to see how this bill would be enforced. And I guess the the worrying onset is. Enforced very harshly. The first arrest was a guy who's who had a flag that just said Hong Kong independence on it. So there's no doubt that the police are going to use their full powers under under this bill to dampen down any goals. For Hong Kong independence, and it's going to have a massive impact on the ability of of activists and pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. To to to operate as they have done. For the last twenty three years. Where unlikely to see a big march this year like we did in years before because the police on hand, the right police are on the ground and are very quick to to arrest people. Isabel. It's not long since we were all given the details of what's in this bill. Could you just summarize it for us? Please well indeed. I think almost nobody outside the National People's. Congress was given the details until after the bill was rushed through a rigorous fifteen minute session. it criminalizes any act of secessions, version, terrorism, or collusion with foreign are external forces. The problem with all of those is who decides Schwarzenegger as secessions, version, terrorism, glues, and and exchange, said the question of how the law will be enacted. Is ABS will be? We'll be applied is absolutely critical including which judges. How will the? How will the legal authorities in Hong Kong React Carrie, Lam has the opportunity to appoint judges that she chooses. And the bill, also the acts now also contains a rather sinister provision. Which says that in got his described as complicated cases at Beijing can simply takeover the prosecution of the law now again. All of this is is. Subject to subjective judgment from Beijing, Beijing designs what collusion with Foreign or external forces Beijing decides. What subversion is and Beijing, can prosecute cases? There is no guarantee that they will be held in. Public is provision for them not to be and. Given the state of of the rule of law in China. I think this is really really serious concern. It's also we should remember the. Legal State in Hong. Kong has been robust and widely respected and indeed lawyers have frequently taken to the streets to defend their. That profession and the application of the law in Hong Kong in very large demonstrations when they felt that Beijing. was encroaching on it, and so the capacity to appoint different judges to these cases is signed that I didn't think Beijing trusts Hong Kong's lawyers who are after school didn't principles of rule of law and equality before the law and all those good things.

"Time to run. This Day's top retail luxury and fashion news with Monaco's fashion editor Jamie waters good morning to you, Jamie. Warning Jordana now of course, wearing black, as long been fashionable, but now the black in fashion council along with some other organizations is moving to make the fashion industry accountable for its race problem. Wearing black has never been more relevant. Tell us what's happening. Hi Yes, but there's a few initiatives and organizations that are being launched at the moment. And blocking fashion. Council is one of the biggest ones, and that's sufficiently launching these wake, but it's founded by Lindsay. Papers Wagner whose the editor in chief of Teen Vogue and Sudden Sandrine Charles is a PR executive basically they wanting to to make the industry accountable. So you know we've seen in recent weeks that were. Browns posting duck towels on instagram and sort of pledging. To the black communities, but now these organizations is saying Kay. We a lot of brands of said this, but they don't actually have representations in terms of their employees on in terms of your mortals and things like that so waking waking to call you to account. So black fashion counts who? Is doing what they're saying is a yearly report cod to hold brands accountable and so every year for the for the next three years, though sort of released this report card that shows. You represent the number of representations of black employees across different levels in the company's on. That was a good qualify paypal's wagner in times of the weekend and she said. We're in a state of cancer coach for right now, but we want to move to accountability Coccia any brown complex, one million dollars to the NASA pay on Instagram, but who will follow up and check that they did. So I think it is the idea of of really putting your mouth is and an If you can make the post on instagram and things like that, but what are you going to do about it? Let's take a felon Tino now. who have who are suing their landlords to try and break the Fifth Avenue wrench contract. Yes, this is an interesting case at the moment west of in this in this position, where over the past couple of months has been kind of. Danz between landlords and retail landlords and tenants in terms of. It's been the kind of case by case basis, but they're in various instances. Landlords have delayed, rent reduced or sometimes. Not Made Brown's pay rented all, but now getting into a situation where things as starting to open up and we're seeing landlords. Say Okay. You need to pay off now and Valentino is suing swing. It's landlord on its Fifth Avenue Flagship in Manhattan. Because it wants to break. It's it's lace contract which I think. He's due to run until two thousand twenty nine I'm basically the brownies saying but. It's such a drastically different retail landscape from when it signed the contract, two thousand and thirteen that. Basically can't make this work in this is just not tenable situation anymore and these these interesting case because. reports saying that the outcome of these. Early lawsuits. we'll really send a signal as to which way the courts are going to go. I think Victoria's sacred is falling different following a similar path. And basically. Whether what irrespective of what happens in the courts? There will be this tussle anyway, because if if brands say that they literally compay. What it's leading landlords in a difficult situation because there's no. in some ways because the the landscape is so decimated, landlords aren't really in a position of power. Because there's no one else is going to fuel they slots. No other people are going to be wanting to retail tenancies at the moment, so it is this kind of interesting tussle. Absolutely I mean it means that the whole character of Fifth Avenue, the kind of beating heart of luxury in the middle of new. York will change completely. Slowly I mean I I think you know obviously things are starting to open up in New York at the moment in terms of shopping, but gear I mean it's the one of the biggest things is that there's just no tourists and I think even if even as the shop so the open an an work how to make these shops attractive to shoppers. You're still not going to have the tourists that make up a huge amount of sales at these flagships in in your in power in the big in the big cities Jamie. Thank you very much. Indeed,
A Tennis Star Catches COVID-19
"Welcome the no challenges remaining. It is Sunday. June twenty first twenty, twenty I am Ben Rothenberg I was working on posting are editing an episode that I recorded a couple days ago with buddies and frequent guests, this show remobilize into all and Louisa Thomas also this episode for the beginning of it. round table talking about the open their plans etcetera etcetera. Then a couple less than an hour ago, there was a posted popped up. I think I dream and remained Toumani. Join me again hello. Hello. Irene was the first one is. If I saw a post, this poster came up on your instagram feed, and can you describe what you saw instagram? Basically posted a photo of himself with a mask, announcing that he is back in Monaco and tested positive for covid nineteen an he apologized for possibly endangering others so yeah, it was him basically disclosing that he has positive, and as we know agree, gorgeous got back from Croatia where he was playing in the Adria tour and a couple of days before that he was playing in Belgrade as well, so he's playing Novak store, and yeah, and we mentioned that obviously on the podcast we recorded two days ago. I it it should be noted that we've seen many patriots of Griego over the past couple of weeks. But that's the first pitcher. We've seen what I'm wearing a mosque. Stu Point to money no I think. Yeah, so this is sort of tenses. Thing hopefully it get to a Rudy Gobert moment in tennis where Gregoire realized I have nothing fallen close attention, paying close attention to the Adria tour, but grew on court yesterday a Saturday in Croatia playing a match inside our Croatia as part of this Adria series traveling around the Balkans he was in. Serbia and we talked about this. A bunch on the show and I think I will probably still. Post the show recorded before, but I feel like this will change the tenor of its I want to post these. Get this one up I throw show that we are connected to reality more than maybe the other episode from two days ago because I think as Louisa, early people say on the show like. In these times a lock change short period of time, this is obviously a big moment for tennis. One that I think it's fair to say that we all feared was very possible with looking at Adria series, which is exhibition event sort of started by Novak Djokovic determined director. Quote Unquote was Georgia Djokovic of ex brother. It was being held in Belgrade and a few other planned stops around the Balkans They just actually after the news of Dmitrov positive test. They just can't sold the final match of today's session in. Montenegro which was supposed to host next weekend had already said thanks, but no thanks to Adria tour canceled their leg of the event. We sort of imagined Asia tour, which was an event. Whichever one you twenty? How about you described? He described what what we saw because he posted a bunch of photos. From recent days what Adrian Tour Bend like the got people concerned something this. Business was sending. The optics are not good. Let's put it charitably that way. Yes essentially what we've seen is What is a very regular event in very abnormal times you know? Whether it's you look on twitter on on streams on on Youtube big crowds in the stadium at Novak's Club scene players. And hands and invading each other's personal space and Interacting with fans you've seen videos of. Them are on the out in a club stripping together. and. Will these images that would be normal in normal times, but these aren't normal times, and it makes you cringe a bit. And so there there there's been tons of criticism and. Of course. Rich kind of. Received a lot of criticism for an we actually spoke. To US ball. And he said kind of that. He's aware of the criticism from the West. But you know what while things may be bad in the UK or the, us, it's not. It's not the same in Serbia. And, yeah, and for that reason you know people have been kind of reacting to that and reacting badly, and that's kind of where we. Can I add? They also had a kids day. That had a lot of kids. We've seen the photo of that as well and they've had a football match, and they've had a basketball match in Croatia. They went to a concert with Donovan John August the new version others the other day, and the thing is you have players who came from countries. Who aren't Serbia and Croatia in that? You have you have players someone like Gregoire? Who flew from the states, then winces Bulgaria, possibly also to Monaco. You also have such as Vera. Vera who's traveling from different places Sasha's also saddlebrook for quite a big portion of the quarantine time you have people traveling from different places, and they got off the plane, and you see the video of them getting off the plane and immediately hugging Novak, and immediately being welcomed people into walking around the no masks I don't understand how you can get a flight and already know that that person that person didn't have time to get tested, so that already was
Top Stories From The Balkans
"We're going to get around above stories making news in the Balkans now I'm joined to buy our correspondence in the region at guide to Lauraingraham. Good afternoon to you. You are in the Slovenian capital. What is happening there? While we're opening up a bet here, marcus in fact, as Britain is going in the direction of putting arrivals and quarantine fourteen days, which is caused a great deal of Cathal over there. I'm here in Slovenia it's exactly the opposite. The country's just opened up. To arrivals from fourteen other European countries, and that's ranging from Switzerland to Iceland and Germany the Baltics, and that's in addition to its neighbours, Croatia Hungary and Austria. Restrictions on rivals from those places had already been lifted Italy those going to have to wait for a little while, but probably for about a week longer, and it's very bad news coming from north Macedonia Marcus, it's a compulsory fourteen day quarantine arriving from that, and that's because of a recent increase in a number of covid nineteen cases. Luckily I'm not coming from us. Part of the world's continuing to the neighboring country Croatia. What's making headlines over there now? We'd like railway journey Sony Marcus on Monocle, twenty, four and I. This is warm, which sounds to me? Like a railway journey that that I'd like to make, and it's one from the Czech Republic through to the Croatian coast, and this is being run by the Czech railway operator regular I think you pronounce it regular jet. Should we go with that? And they are running trains that I think we'll go with that the plan anyway as whatever they could they. However you pronounce that they're going to be running night. Trains from the Czech Republic from Prague directly through to the Croatian coast to be precise, the city of the reactor, which is actually one of the European capitals of culture this year, and from they'll be able to get connections to any of your coastal destinations, and this is a big deal. It's a big. Big Deal for people in the Czech Republic because eight hundred thousand of them every year. Go on holiday in Croatia apparently, the the advertising in in the Czech. Republic refers to Croatia as aw coast so quite proprietorial about it. They are number seven in terms of tourist arrivals in Croatia, so it's not an exaggeration, really but it's also a big deal for Croatia. Because twenty percent of their GDP is generated by tourism I'm said they're going to have to. Find ways of getting people from places like the Czech Republic that key tourism markets. If that is salvage any kind of a summer season at all, and this is exactly the when people are talking about corona corridors between countries which have low infection rates of which. Croatia and the Czech Republic A to well I think that A. Colorado, because let's face it this. This trains conjugate three tunnels Marcus that raw appeals to me I in terms of both an elegant solution and the word play, and the fact that it'll. Be a very beautiful train journey. If you can see if it's not to. Dock sounds very promising. Let's continue our tour next to L.. The obeyed and authorities are facing legal action.

Junior and senior years of high school, the last two years of high school and it was a life forming experience for me. I lived with the family for six weeks in the far north of Sweden. It was the summer so It was pretty much daylight. Around the clock and It was a rural kind of experience. We were living outside of a smaller city and I just remember mosquitoes and lingering sunsets and pine trees but it was an experience that really kind of got me out of what I had known up to. Then and I've never stopped really seeking that adventure

"The word surveillance has a negative connotation the one area where people use surveillance as a unambiguous positive is public health arena. Where they you know they talk about surveillance as a good thing and this. Is those two worlds colliding where you actually have the surveillance state using surveillance in the most negative sense of the term for public health surveillance in a in a way that is not wholly negative. All these masks are gonNA really mess up the facial recognition and a algorithms You know color devastating all right all right so Lisa. You were talking before about the structural lack of functioning of coordinating mechanisms in the US. Federal government and their impact on an environment. Like this select. Bring that down to brass tacks for EXA- for a minute like what? What do you mean by that in real terms so give you two concrete examples of that you referenced? The job I held his White House Homeland Security and counterterrorism adviser. That job was created after nine. Eleven to have one person in the White House focused a hundred percent of his or her time. Twenty four seven on issues like terrorism. Cyber threats pandemic disease natural disasters things that have a direct and immediate impact on the homeland. the national security adviser focuses on national security foreign policy issues but after nine eleven president. George W Bush thought important to have a senior person in the White House directly immediately accountable to him on these transnational threat issues with a direct impact on the homeland so created the Homeland Security Adviser President saw the wisdom of that role and kept it and occupied it for the entirety of his second term. And what was your nickname in that capacity? My nickname was doctor doom and as the Portfolio implies I did not have a lot of good news to deliver him Every day and I met with them every morning and I rarely had any good news to give them so. That's that's how I got that nickname but the point of the role was to have somebody who has responsibility to be thinking about these issues every day. And when something really bad happens to coordinate the government's policy and other responses to it and in the case of Ebola that as you pointed out that was my role but I also had lots of other on my to do list throughout that time it was also the time when Isis was on the rise. Any number of things were going on so the president also ended up appointing in a bulla response. Coordinator Ron claimed who did a fantastic job. And at the end of all of the Full of response got under control etc. Ron said to the president. You should never have to appoint another kind of disease. Czar and he recommended that there be a unit inside the National Security Council a Pandemic Preparedness Unit. That is focused on these types of whether it's flu whether it's Ebola whether it's corona virus and so we set up a structure where we had a global health security entity in unit within the National Security Council. Just like we have one for counterterrorism like we have one first cyber Issues and that is a structure that was put in place to be constantly thinking about these issues and preparing for them those two issues homeland security advisor role. This pandemic preparedness unit within the National Security Council. Those of both been dismantled in the last three years said the role that I occupied in that President. George W Bush had somebody in that role for all eight years of his presidency. President Obama had that role filled for eight years. That role has now been erased. The name little little quiz for you Ben. Can you name the Homeland Security and counterterrorism adviser? No I've I aware that your successor Tom. Bossert was dismissed or and my impression is that it has not been filled sense. Is that right I effectively? It hasn't I think they had a person function at that. Deputy level at one point But I think it's it's now been raised right So you don't have somebody who is At the most senior level in the White House who's talking to the president every day about these issues and more importantly you no longer have this pandemic preparedness unit within the White House That's been dismantled. The very capable of Rear Admiral. Tom Zima who had occupied. That role was reassigned. A couple years ago and that unit has been disbanded. So you don't have the kind of the arm of government that the kind of engine of government the experts the subject matter expertise resident in the National Security Council focused on these issues one hundred percent of the time. Even though we've got those things for other threats terrorism cyber you name it and pandemic disease is something that very knowledgeable and thoughtful folks Believe is the thing that will kill the most people in the shortest amount of time over the next ten years. Sophia I if I were the Chinese government right now In addition to putting together Lego hospitals and and seeking to manage a one point four billion people's movements and interactions with one another. I would also be super sens- sensitive about information flows Because they are dealing with this apparent discontent. Among large numbers of people and eruptions have expressed anger. They recently expelled. A bunch of the Wall Street Journal reporters Which is you know a move. They do periodically and I'm curious to what extent that is or is not connected to this larger environment in which they operate that expulsion China expelled three Wall Street Journal. Reporter's got five days to get out of the country in its community killing a Lotta with just one stone heart of it is in retaliation to the world outside of China to the. Us announced a few days ago which was decided it would treat five major. Chinese state run media organizations basically as an extension of the Chinese government requiring them to disclose information to the State Department about what they're doing in the US but at the same time. China remember is dealing with the public anger issue at home about the government's response so there is the sense that this move to expel. The foreign. Reporters is a way to distract. And it's a way to redirect public anger over how the Chinese government handled or is handling the epidemic to stoke this anti-foreign very nationalist sentiment at home and it's something that they've been fanning. Carlisle says it was upset about this opinion piece of the Wall Street Journal had published. It had a headline that was Kinda is the real sick man of Asia and if you around in China a lot of people they will talk about the doe that this headline was published by an American newspaper and so they have done a lot of messaging but the Chinese government about this particular issue and so by putting this blame you know saying. Hey we're trying to best we can but you know outside world you're just poking holes at us and you're hurting us were when we're already on the ground you know like a bit of a wounded animal reacting. I think it's a way to distract from how people here are feeling because they can harness that that energy of people being upset to this other issue. That's kind of a tried and true when that China falls back on all the time US versus them. So it's interesting to see how it's all played out because they were very public about it with different about this expulsion compared to other ones that we've seen recently a foreign journalists is that China announced it very clearly they did it at the daily press briefing that the Foreign Ministry holds so they wanted the world to know often they don't they simply just don't renew your press accreditation so it's not a very public very loud affair. It's just something that happens and they just kind of you know they're like oh well you know times up for you. This is very different. They clearly wanted to make a statement and I think it does different things that accomplish different goals for China at home and abroad as Donald. Trump would say we will see what happens.

"Properly so the scale of this in some respects. We don't have the full picture. I agree with what sophy I just said I think early. On the mortality rate that people are focusing on was about to percents And roughly in the same range as SARS right in the past SARS epidemic that China also dealt with about a decade ago and there are some folks who think that some of the information flow within and from China is such that. It's it's hard to tell. Just how much confidence we should have in that two percents number and a Sufi indicated. There is some reason to think that it's it's picking up. I think the bottom line of this is and I said this and the piece that I wrote for Law Fair on the corona virus. We need to be quite humble about what we know at this juncture vis-a-vis the legality and the incubation period. Etcetera of of the virus was fair enough. But it's fair to say that the epidemic that you dealt with was a very high lethality relatively low transmissibility event or or organism and this one is a very high transmissibility and comparatively low lethality. Though we don't know how low I think that's I think that's fair. In the in the other issue is the mode of transmission is obviously quite important right the fact that this is a a respiratory virus communicable which we know vis-a-vis droplets through sneezing and coughing. That makes it a much more difficult. I think to to address transmissibility issues. All right so let's turn to. We've talked a little bit about the Chinese government response. I WANNA come back to that in a moment but let's talk about the US government response Donald Trump said publicly. That were doing just fine. And it's all going to go away when it warms up anyway and Wilbur. Ross the commerce secretary suggested this may be good for US manufacturing. I am curiously search for your sense of first of all how the changes in posture to address it that that have taken place since you laughed but also power we doing in the preventing. What is a clearly epidemic level Infection RATE IN CHINA FROM SPREADING. Here in a way. That is more than incidental. So I'll I'll take this first from kind of a release zoom out posture right. The administration the current administration in my view is not approached pandemic disease like the Corona Virus and other emerging infectious diseases with the with the type of priority that. I think it deserves because I think pandemic Ziza's is one of the greatest threats to global stability and security that that we can face and we're seeing some of the ramifications of that. Why do I think they haven't placed the right priority on it there? I think there's a few data points here one the budget which is the best edition of prioritization They've historically cut prevention funding to things like the Centers for Disease Control. And although there are some indications that they're changing that posture. A little bit in the latest budget Organizationally they have gutted the structures that have been put in place over time to address things like emerging infectious disease both in the White House and elsewhere. So that I don't think they're looking at it as on par with other National Security and homeland security threats. And that's dangerous right because you can't turn on a dime and be prepared for something that one of the foremost experts in this country on these issues Tony Voucher. Who's at the National Institutes of Health. Has said is on the cusp of becoming a pandemic right right. Now we're talking about epidemic But it is on the cusp of coming up here. So you've gotTa have those structures in place at the Front End So that you're not playing catch up all the time so I think that's I think it's it's profoundly dangerous that We've kind of backslid from the ability to coordinate. A response and the coordination pieces is critical. Because think of all the things we've just talked about visa via Bola and that you'd want to have in place and be able to put in place. Should we start seeing more spread here and other places around the world? Those don't involve just one single agency right this. It involves everything from border issues to screening questions. To in some instances we had a massive deployment of of military capability into West Africa to help the Africans control the spread of Ebola. All of these things have to interact and be coordinated. You can't do that with kind of one in name. What seems to be in name? Only Task Force of the trump administration has said they've created a corona taskforce headed by secretary as are the secretary of Health and Human Services. There was that announcement a few weeks ago. But we haven't seen anything else. Come from that. We don't know how that's running what's being done and you know as capable and individuals secretaries are may be He's got a full cabinet agency to run and the Department of Defense doesn't take orders from secretary. Days are all right so just in case people who are listening. Say Yeah Hindsight's twenty twenty at the time you left government. I believe it was the first piece you wrote after leaving government was a piece for law fair warning about exactly. This issue too is kind of pretty clearly addressed to your successor. Who of course has since been removed? I'm curious you know but you basically said this is the issue that took us by surprise. Don't let it take you by surprise. Is it fair to say that this is not a hindsight issue? This is something the administration a should have been had every reason to know to worry about including that you told them you gotta worry about this. Yes and it's actually something. We focused on in the transition. So it wasn't only the peace and you're right. It was the first thing I wrote After leaving government and born of profound concern of the types of transnational threats. At Work Getting I. I always assumed that that piece was a public version of a transition memo that you road. Yeah and in transition ma'am. It was included in transition members but it also importantly was part of a exercise. Right up a a tabletop. Exercise that we conducted with the outgoing administration national security team and the incoming national security team. So this was done. I believe in the last week or two of the Obama administration in January twenty seventeen and it is a I can't claim credit for doing this. I actually was taking a page out of the Bush. Two Obama transition which I also was a part of because at the time in two thousand eight thousand nine. I was the chief of staff to then little known. Washington lawyer named Bob Muller and I so I participated in the transition of administration that rule from the Bush administration to the Obama Administration. And something that I think President George W. Bush did he played a very high priority on this. He directed his team to have a very professional. Comprehensive handover and part of that. And it's something. President Obama later talked about that he really valued and part of that process was sitting down for multiple hours. The incoming and outgoing teams national security team sat down and through a series of scenarios. If you will to say here's the types of issues. We the outgoing team faced. Here's some of the issues that were on the table. How we approach them lessons that we learned and talked through with their successors to kind of give them the benefit of their experience in their insights. So that they're not reinventing the wheel when they confronted these issues and you talked about this specifically in those contacts and we did the same thing so in my fast forward to two thousand seventeen as the homeland security adviser. I was responsible for Certain aspects of the transition between administrations obviously notably the homeland security focused pieces of them and I organized and Co chaired with my successor. At the time Tom Bossert a exercise a tabletop a series of scenarios. Where we we got in a huge room in the old executive office building on the White House complex and literally sat down side by side with the incoming trump national security team or those who had been named or or kind of anointed as such and we had all of the outgoing national security cabinet members of their deputies and we walked through a series of scenarios and we specifically included a pandemic disease scenario. In fact it was flew a new strain of flu. Was the hypothetical that we worked through precisely because I was and we were so concerned about this issue. So we've talked about Ebola the thing if you talk to homeland security experts and public health officials. The thing they are most concerned about is a new strain of flu precisely because it is so communicable in fact I was moderating a panel yesterday at Nyu Law School for the recenter online security. That I'm a senior fellow at and on that panel was Howard Zucker. Who is the Commissioner of Public Health for the State of New York And he talked about the state's approach to preparedness for Corona Virus. But he really emphasized that thing. They're most concerned about is flu. Right all right so sophia. Let's compare this sense of the. Us government response to the much more difficult problem that the Chinese government has faced and how they've dealt with it they don't do the whole you know peaceful transition of power thing. At least I was describing but they do have a precursor to this like Lisa had to deal with a Ebola. They had to deal with SARS. It's roughly in the same timeframe a little bit earlier again. This couldn't have taken them completely by surprise Their initial response seems to have been to cover it up and now they are have sort of snapped into action. So how would you describe the the trajectory of the Chinese government response so far so in the beginning it seems like local officials in China? Maybe already knew what was going on but hadn't reported fully to higher authorities. No it's a. It's a bureaucratic system. I mean it isn't one party system but they're the way it's set up. Is that if you as a local official. I mean. It's your job manager patch. If you don't do that very that might mean you lose on the next promotion. And so that's why you see things like maybe data massaging when it comes to the economy or things like this so it seems like there may have been some disconnect in terms of how quickly local officials accident whether it was deliberate re capacity. Inexperience shoe. That's not clear eventually. Obviously the central government got wind of this and there are requirements in China at the local level to report when they're more than five cases up to the national level so there is a mechanism to be tracking sorts of health occurrences and where the risks.

"Episode of stay tuned in the crazy impeachment. News cycle many important national security stories. Seem to have gotten lost so I asked two of my good friends. Lisa Monaco and Ken Weinstein. No more about this stuff than just about anyone to get together kind of like and I do every week and make sense of what's happening. Kalisa encounter both longtime public servants and interestingly they've held the same set of hugely important jobs in law enforcement and national security they were both federal prosecutors in. DC both served as chief of staff to FBI Director. Bob Muller both went on to lead the National Security Division of the Justice Department in fact Ken was the first person to have that job and it was created after nine eleven and then both served his homeland and counter-terrorism advisors to the President Ken to President George W Bush and Lisa to President Barack Obama during which time one of her many any responsibilities was to coordinate the response to the Abullah outbreak. Lisa of course has been a guest on stay tuned before. So I'm excited. They have agreed to debrief us. On several important issues is making the headlines including the corona virus encryption and the controversy over the Carter Page size awards members of Kathy insider can hear Lisa and cans full conversation and and access other exclusive content including my weekly podcast with an milligram at cafe dot com slash. Insider that's cafe dot com slash insider. Or help you enjoy the special edition. Initiative stay tuned and be sure to catch this Thursday's regular episode with my guest John Dickerson. Who Help US break down the latest shade of crazy in the world of politics Good to be with. You can good to be here talking to you about something. That is not impeachment related Amen. I think I'm up to the eyeballs and the impeachment and radio back to national security. Exactly right we do actually have diverse backgrounds and that we spent a good bit of Time Justice Department seeing the world from a law enforcement spend perspective largely and then post nine eleven sort of moving more into the national security world as the priorities of the day dictated and the focus and the Justice Department the move toward counterterrorism and the threats from nation states and the like and so both of us sort of moved more into that area and then ended up in the White House doing an interagency process. Not Together though because that office wouldn't have fit. Both of US probably closet. You know we're sitting here having been asked by pre to Get together other and Spend a little time on issues that frankly I think this and I don't know what you can but there's a bunch of issues I think aren't getting enough attention these these days absolutely and it's too easy to get focused or remain focused all the time on the the most politically controversial matters that are going on and playing out in the front pages and forget about out some of the really important national security issues that are often lurking behind those headlines. So as we sit here today. The number number of cases of the corona virus are exploding exponentially. Actually we've got lots going on when it comes to the intelligence community and and questions of whether or not they should be giving their annual worldwide threat assessment actually in public there some indications that some of the intelligence community leaders. You don't WanNa do that for fear. Potentially of angering the president lots of controversy around the Pfizer process and the encryption issue is back in the news so lots of stuff to cover. If I could start and actually I look to you on the Krona Virus Lisa. You handled Ebola when you're at the White House so I think you uh up close and personal with these issues involving outbreaks. Luckily not that personal with a bullet but Now look the news about the corona virus. I I guess we should talk a little bit about what is it and should people be worried about this and you know one of the things that I think we we see particularly now coming out on a lot of these stories about Corona virus and we saw happen In two thousand fourteen when the Abullah scare happened in the Ebola pandemic happened is it's really hard to separate out fact act from hysteria quite frankly and that was a big problem with Ebola. So you know. The Corona virus ever now is was probably heard about this and seen a lot of On news reports. It's a new strain of virus coming out of China and it is basically a flu like illness. It has spread spread really exponentially. It looks like it was started. Came from a from a bat actually and then ultimately has now shown that it is spreading reading from human to human. which is what's really really scary? The now the focus in the last couple of days has turned to what is the US government doing about it. And I know from my experience that a lot of attention got paid at the beginning of the Abullah scare in two thousand fourteen with house. The government organized. That's right. WHO's in charge right? I mean you know from your own experience whenever there is a big security crisis whether it's a terrorist attack whether it's a natural natural disaster or a pandemic event the question very quickly turns to. WHO's in charge? You were President Bush's Homeland Security Adviser. Liser I think you all handle that. In a similar way as President Obama did which they said the Homeland Security Adviser the job you had for President Bush and the job I had under President Obama. This issue fell squarely in my responsibilities. Same with me. Same with my predecessors in the Bush White House and maybe you just step back for a second helmet visor still exists that position still exists. It's been reconfigured Under the trump administration but for both the Obama and Bush administrations and we had a portfolio that covered counter-terrorism general nature of the threat being any threat to the homeland but that covered terrorism pandemics pandemic planning continuity of government county operations in the event of a crisis port security and then as you mentioned dealing with natural disasters so it was quite a range of issues. You know people listening to this discussion might understand why President Obama had a nickname for me. What was that? He called me Doctor. Doom Yeah Kinda surprising doesn't doesn't make you feel welcome you walk in the Oval Office and the President Calls you Dr tended to say it with a smile you know exit. Yeah but the but it turns out you know Every time I talked to him every day right every morning I would meet with him. I know you met with President Bush every morning as part the President's Daily briefing right that morning meeting where we would talk about the issues of the day the biggest crises facing the country From a national security in Homeland Security Perspective and unsurprisingly. I never had good news to tell them right. Yeah that's not. Our job was never my job so he he took to calling me doctor doom because I came in talking to him about a Bolo or terrorist attacks were cybersecurity threats nickname for President Obama. Pray tell that's classified pacified. The leak we want a tribute to just between your mate thousand podcast listeners. You and I come from from a similar background as a law enforcement person in a national security person focusing mostly on on counter-terrorism about you but it was it was a steep learning curve when I walked in the White House and suddenly had to learn about the statutes governing federal assistance natural disasters or how to deal with the public health issues presented by an outbreak in. You got to be doing a bunch of things now to make sure that you do contain and minimize the impact here. So how prepared are we today. I guess I'd answer. Answer that in a few ways organizationally at the federal government level the secretary if health and human services oversees the Public Health Service right now. That's secretary as czar. That's a that's a big job for the secretary of Health and Human Services so you would think okay. That job falls to that person that Cabinet department but the reality is something like a bowl of something like this response. This needs to be government wide. It's not just a question of where the the medical facts. There's lots of questions about travel right. How do you deal with screening? Incoming passengers a lot of people listening to this probably have. I've seen pictures on the news about incoming passengers travelers from China or other places being checked having their temperature taken as they get off the plane to see if they might have fever and my show signs of infection all of that has got to be coordinated with the Department of Homeland Security with the folks who deal with customs who deal with the border they have to be coordinated with the local officials wherever that airport is so it is a big big undertaking and isn't confined to just one department or one agency. It really takes what we call a whole of government response. And that's why in my experience during when when Bulla was really escalating. There was a big controversy over whether or not the president should appoint a quote unquote. Czar seemed like every every problem at some point. Whether it's people in Congress or on the news starts saying well who's the czar who's the person in charge and you know frankly some of that that I think is political posturing sometimes but there's actually some a bit of wisdom around the question whatever you call it whether you call it a czar. You're or not at a certain point problem becomes so complex and so wide ranging that you need one person who can focus his or her attention twenty four seven right. And that's what we decided in a bola and so President Obama appointed a ron clean. Someone you and I both know Oh to be the Ebola response coordinator so that he could focus one hundred percent of his time on coordinating from the White House across the interagency originally across the different departments agencies thus far there has been no one who's been assigned to be a corona virus twenty nineteen czar I think the latest news we've got coming out of the White House is that there has been a task. Force appointed led by Secretary as are the secretary of Health and Human Services assist with a number of other cabinet secretaries who are on that task force and that the National Security Council in the White House is coordinating needing the work of this task force. But that's being done by the Deputy National Security Advisor the question of whether you rely on a CD do it or appoint point. Czar can have very real life implications in terms of how well Crisis Response is rolled out so one one question you hear about people being quarantined which sounds to me like you're taking oftentimes US citizens or citizens foreign lands who have rights who Presumably can be mobile and go wherever they want and they're being told by force or threat of coercion that they have to stay in one place. Is there a legal construct in our laws laws state and federal laws for that action in his out. Something that's happening here. Yeah so people will be surprised to learn that actually in a public health emergency local officials initials and federal public. Health officials. Have a significant amount of authority so in fact right now in the last couple of days people may have seen a story about route. There's over one hundred people. Now who are being quarantined for lack of a better word in Riverside California right where a a number of people who've traveled back who've who've come out of China where the where the virus started have returned to the United States but there's concern among public health officials and local officials that they could still be within the incubation period the period about to to fourteen days during With this virus that they could still be contagious. So the local officials have the authority to keep them in one place. So it doesn't compound the spread of the disease the sobering and even more sobering if you sort of extrapolate that out and think about human human contact here in the United States in this these are just the people who came in from China now. What happens when people get exposed here? Her and that population grows here. Could you see Corentin being done at a much more mass scale than one hundred whatever it is now so so bring in and Shows you the links that the government is to go to try to protect the society from these kind of bugs. Another issue can that I noticed in the news of late is I. Guess yes you might say an Oldie but a goodie or A not so goodie and a not so only but Is the issue of encryption. You and I both dealt with this in multiple incarnations I think when we were Chief of staff at the FBI when we were in the Justice Department heading the National Security Division at different times and then of course in the White House and it's a perennial Daniel issue that only seems to be getting more complicated and a harder one to solve and it just got into the news again in the last week or so with with attorney. General Bar really sticking out a pretty hardcore position we think our tech sector has the ingenuity to develop effective ways to provide secure encryption. Well also providing secure legal access and. It's well past time for some in the tech community to abandon the indefensible posture. That a technical article solution is not worth exploring and instead turn their considerable talent and ingenuity to developing products that will reconcile good cybersecurity. Hyper security to the imperative of public safety and national security. This was in the aftermath of the shooting down in Pensacola the FBI has determined was a terrorist attack in the fact that The government was not able to get into the phone or phones that were owned by the shooter charter. find out whom he was in touch with his dad bad. He's killed on the scene. But of course you WanNa know who's confederates. Were who might have been providing them support might might have been casing the location L.. All the kind of questions you would have not only as viscous or not only to prove the crime but also in this case to find out if there's anybody else out there who is looking to do for their crimes further further terrorist attacks but this issue is you said is a perennial issue and it goes back and various forums decades but in modern times it's gotten the terms terms the term Ford has been coined as going dark and the idea. Is that for one reason. Another in this case. Encryption the government's ability to surveillance in other words to intercept over here wiretap communications by phone or by email or chat electronic medications their ability. You do that gets narrowed for one. Reason or other and some parts of the spectrum of communication becomes unavailable to the government and our old friend..
