"more than five hundred days" Discussed on Slate's Hang Up and Listen

"Platform after sunday night's instant classic between the men's national soccer teams of the united states and mexico. Our friends spencer hall tweeted a guy jumped off the broadcast and presumably straight into hell and it wasn't the tenth wildest thing i counted at least fourteen things that were arguably wilder not including first time commentator and longtime us hero. Clint dempsey's camouflage sports coat in the end. The usa came from behind twice to win three two on a christian pulisic penalty kick in like the four hundred and thirty third minute of play and collected the very first concacaf nations league championship trophy. Joel you never forget. Your first concacaf nations league championship the relatively low stakes however should not obscure either the utter insanity of this match or what it indicated about the future and even present of the men's team which sir rather significant i think you watched. Did you order a weston mckennie jersey right after the game because you should have you know he was born in little elm texas out a you know a. I'm just now learning this weston mckennie person but you said low stakes. The way people reacted yesterday. I thought that this was actually meaningful in some sort of way that admitted you qualified for the world cup or i don't get confused because there's so many concha caf competitions in the. Us team is on tv every few months. And everybody gathers around the tv to root for them and everybody gets really excited dramatic about the result. And then you find out. Oh wait actually doesn't have anything to do with welcome to soccer. Fandom joel matters because there are so few games right so this was an actual competition though and there is this distinction that between like a friendly match or match where you know where the managers trying out new players and something that actually has a title so you know i said relatively low stakes because no it's not qualifying the world cup. This was a bullshit manufactured tournament that is designed to generate some tv revenue in the absence. Sort of instead of a friendly match that has no prize attached. But josh there were real stakes here and that was like are all of these young terrific european-based players who are being thrown on the field together for basically the first time in any meaningful competition and in the run-up to the qualification for next year's actual world cup. How would they do. How did they do. Are you getting ping pong back and forth between calling in meaningful and meaningless about six to eight times getting meaningless. The the game itself and the what it portends are meaningful. It is possible to hold those two contradictory thoughts at once. Yes we're a complicated people with complicated thoughts so it was the first quote unquote competitive match for the us. Men's national team over five hundred days and it was meaningful for the fan base. Because there's been this sense of anticipation of will this be the generation fan to both kind of redeem it. The failures of the team that lost trying to add in two thousand seventeen and didn't make the world cup but also in a larger sense to bring the united states. Men's team to international glory and mexico is the measuring stick and has always been and probably will always be the measuring stick for the usa. Men's national team and it's gone back and forth of who's been the most dominant in the region. But i think there is always this anxiety about how we stack up against the mexican national team especially team. That's been really strong in recent years. And so that's why there is so much anticipation around this game. And that's why this victory i think is meaningful and not just to fans but you get the sense joel from watching the game and the reacting to it that it was really meaningful to these players to like. These guys had never played together in a game like this. And the fact that the goal scores were christian pulisic weston mckennie gio raina who are sort of like the leading figures of this new generation that also felt meaningful. We have to take your word for it right. it's meaningful familiarizing. Myself with the fee for international rankings. And because i was like okay excited about beating mexico even though this is a meaningful or meaningless match. We don't quite know the stakes. But i was like okay. Well let's see how good mexico actually is in. Mexico was ranked eleventh in the most recent fifa rankings. Us was number twenty. And i'm like okay. I guess that sounds pretty good. Like if the us is ranked somewhere between ten and twenty. Does that mean that they're returning to glory. Or you know what i mean like. I don't i just don't understand. I think the rank the fifa rankings are always kind of fraught but in particular since they haven't played a competitive match in more than five hundred days. I think the number of data points that we have to rely on about how good the uss but how good like really any team is right now. So i think this was kind of measuring stick for them. Obviously like you said. I mean the players were obviously hyped about it although i i can't imagine like as an athlete if you play and so international competition with some attached steaks and you win and that dramatic of a fashion that it wouldn't resonate to you not make you excited like i can totally get that but guess the thing is for me. Is that american soccer. fame's are always like living and dying by the results of the next game and it means something fans of any other team actually not because like basketball baseball. Maybe less football but like each week doesn't necessarily mean that you're gonna it makes it reflects onto the legacy of the upcoming team with it. The trajectory of team. Sometimes the game is just a game but in soccer. I'm finding out in particularly with the us men's national team that we don't feel that way that every game is a referendum on the status of the national team status in the world. And i mean. I guess it's sort of confusing to me to keep up with the last time. We did a segment on the us national team. They in one game and lost the game in the same weekend because there were two different thing than like people were frustrated with the us national team and all of a sudden. They weren't so like i guess. It just seems sort of exhausting to figure out which of these competitions actually matter in. Which should i take a lesson from because it just seems like every time it's different that's the beauty of international soccer. Joel i mean it really. Is you got to ride the wave of of emotion. A sort of a sign over value to every game. And that's kind of what it's about because look if you're the coach of the men's national team gregg berhalter of the us in this case who was not a beloved choice. He's like the brother of the one of the chief executives of us soccer at the time when he was hired. He's an american when there was a lot of clamor for the united states to go hire a prominent international coach who could nurture stars who were playing on top clubs in europe. The biggest collection of americans playing in top leagues overseas ever. So you don't play that many games. His job is largely recruiting and planning so every game does have this added meaning and then the mexico rivalry which i think you have to be. Blind not to see is incredibly intense. Both in the stands and on the field players don't like each other even if they don't know each other that well i mean. I mentioned that. I mentioned spencer halls tweet at the top but the game was insane. I mean mexico's scores a minute into the game..

"And said the spread of covert nineteen is inevitable after three deadlocked in divisive elections a year and a half of political paralysis and another three day delay because of political infighting in his Likud party prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu finally swore in his new government on Sunday. The Knesset Parliament Pasta. Vote of confidence. In Netanyahu's new administration to end over five hundred days of upheaval over the weekend both Netanyahu and his rival and partner. Benny Ganz announced their appointments for the new government. The most bloated in Israeli history with an expected thirty six cabinet ministers and sixteen deputies Netanyahu against a former military chief announce last month they would be putting their differences aside to join forces to steer the country through the corona virus crisis and its severe economic fallout. They're controversial power-sharing deal calls for Netanyahu to serve as prime minister for the government's first eighteen months before being replaced by Ganz for the next eighteen months despite the criticism. Ganz argued that teaming with Netanyahu offered the country it's only way out of the prolonged stalemate and prevented what would have been a fourth costly election in just over a year.

The Five Most Important Movies at Sundance

"The game we made up is essentially the five bio-pics you meet in heaven so we tried to find the five different kinds of stories that are told in the biopic format. Thought it was pretty fun. I think it's useful to play a game like that at Sundance because there are a lot of homes on not all of them are great in fact some of them are great but when one is good it can be a kind of transformative experience and they usually come in a in a particular kind of package. Now when you think of of a sundance movie what do you think of. I think of a quiet often heartwarming family or rip character-driven dramas with maybe a little bit of quirkiness added to them. That is definitely at least one of the Kennedy talking about this episode also documentaries that's the other one lots and lots of documentaries so she should we dive right in. Okay let's dive right in the first and the most classical example of the sundance movie is exactly what you're describing. It's essentially the family family drama. The sometimes lighthearted sometimes deadly serious as we go through these we'll talk about Some previous examples of films that have played at Sundance that fit this rubric. So when you think of this movie more severe example of it might be winter's bone or fruitvale station or affliction more lighthearted example might be big night a genre fight example might be like take shelter So these movies I think Are the most derided of the Sundance archetype. That's true I was trying not to be dismissive when I was describing off the top of my head but as soon as you say Sundance movie there is just a as soon as you're categorizing categorizing rising things in. You're being unfair to the things which I guess we're going to be unfair to every single move. We talked about to extend. This is a podcast and we need buckets. We need segments. We need to push the conversational says. I wasn't totally totally trying to be dismissive of the family drama. There are good ones. There are bad ones. That's a fact You and I had the good fortune. I think this year to see one of the best movies at the festival and one that falls pretty squarely into this framework. So the movie's called minority We just got out of our screening of minority. What was your takeaway from this film? This is a story about out a Korean American family who emigrates to Arkansas in the eighties and there is a little kid in this movie movie that just absolutely ripped my heart out and and all the performances did and I thought that it is. It's the best case version of this because it's definitely moves you but it's also funny as you said right before we started recording. It's beautifully shot. Well written it smart and not to truly if that makes any does it's an eight twenty four or movie written and directed by a man namely Chung and he has an interesting gracefulness with what what appears to be his own story. I actually don't know anything about where the story comes from but when we were discussing earlier we identified that. There is an incredible level of specificity in the story. In the setting in Arkansas in a family trying to create a new life for themselves a new state and a new country trying to figure out how to stay married trying to figure out how to be good parents trying to figure out how to be good. Children had to be good grandchildren. It's a very complex. WCHS portrait of a family living in close quarters. Not Totally. Sure if they're going to be able to go forward with their lives in the way that they wanted to and all that stuff I still. I'm kind of does a disservice to the movie because that just sounds like Sundance Hokum And I think the movies a little bit more special than that now. Are We experiencing the festival high on a movie perhaps. Perhaps it's possible but as I was watching it I think you'll probably see a lot of comparisons to the farewell about this movie as the year goes on and not just because it's from an Asian and filmmaker but because it's a particularly a story about three generations and how three generations interact with each other and some of the confusion that happens when one culture collides with another culture in place that they don't fully understand the farewell. It's obviously Luang main character. Visiting China Grandmother. This film is a Korean American family moving into a rural place. The thing I liked about it the most is that it doesn't apply the usual tricks that you would think a movie movie like this about a non white family. Moving into the south in the eighties. Might incorporate a little bit more subtle and sophisticated when I heard the word Reagan Reagan early on in the film. I got a little nervous. And there is a lot of thoughtfulness about the socioeconomic aspect of the story. But it's not there. No burning crosses in this movie there is no. You know vindictive vitriolic language about the family. It is really just a family story which I was kind of relieved about honestly it's really insular and it's explores the relationships between between all of the members of the family pretty specifically and individually and but and that's enough that kind of fills up the movie. Yes so since. We've you've never been here before. I kinda wanted to talk about a movie like this. I think this movie might fit into another category and other sort of bucket. We've created here but I've never been able to witness in real time. I am the life cycle of film. That May Be in the consciousness for the next twelve months and to be on the ground floor when that thing happens did you have that sense when you're watching this or did you just feel like well. I've been seeing a lot of movies this week and I'm doing my best to take stock of all of them. I think it was the ladder with their recognition that I thought this was a very good film in one of the best films. I've seen this week. I'm I'm trying to protect against festival buys. I don't I don't know. Do you feel like so. You need to to start some festival buzz right here. I don't think I'm capable of such a thing. I need to know my own power which is minimal nor do I and I think I'm more I have never been to sundance either and I'm treating it more as what you said. It's interesting to watch it happen. And I'll be curious to see how other people respond to it and what it is like to watch it in the screening leaning room whenever people get to see at. Were you know in a movie theater or at home. I don't have a sense. Totally of how those things translate yet and yeah I don't either. I mean it's the sort of film that You know on. Its face. It Star Steven Jahn who obviously had great success actually not utterly dissimilar story burning in two thousand eighteen. There are some kind of thematic and visual references. That kind of match interesting double feature. I just don't know a lot of the Casas. Very Unknown Hania replays his his wife. Stephen's wife who you know. They're the sort of the lead couple in the family. And we'll patent plays a minim. Paul who is is a local aid a spiritual man who works with the family. He's giving what I would describe it as a very sundance. He performance he's anti character is sundance character. Maybe ripped from real life hard to say but this movie is like sort of very quiet and subtle and Paul is not not the most subtle. You're in the world. I don't think Paul will be competing for any awards but Stephen. I don't know he's really turned himself into quite a quite great leading actor. I will say I already mentioned the kid at this is an all time great kid performance and we were talking about after seeing the movie like. How do you get six year old to do what the six year old does? And I don't have the answers to that. I hope to discover them at some point. But we'll say really good kid. Performance goes a long way. It's true in people really love to see a cute kid up on the screen. Uh Ribbon hearts out yeah. He's like a charm vector and an empathy machine. You know that every time he's not screen you're looking at that. I really just feel for that so we didn't attend this party. Apparently he was here at Sundance. Walking the carpets at cowboy outfit. Yes big big park city energy from seven year old Allen Kim. We look forward to more things from him in the future. Go to the next kind of category. Yes okay so I. I've described this as the adult oriented comedy. Now I think that also sounds a little bit dirty like like not not not scatalogical your sexually dirty but just sort of like corny. I'm not sure that adult oriented in comedy is something that you want go together like I said as soon as we're applying larger categories to these things that invokes branding evokes marketing. It invokes all of the things. That aren't a work of art so so I think that's why we feel the way we feel but also this is how the world works and it's definitely help I've gasworks keep going so I would say some of the movies that fall into this. Category are among our favorite movies so four four weddings and a funeral plate sundance many years ago. John Have you seen for weddings and a funeral. I've seen thirty eight minutes of it. What is why do you do this to me is well? It's just the film that I started to watch movies. I watched the whole movie well. This isn't Chris Ryan. I watched the Irishman on three consecutive nights. Nonsense think of it like this life life is one big screening okay more in a continuous stream viewership and happy with you. One day I'll get to the conclusion of four weddings and a few I wasn't going to post host. The picture of you tweeting on the shuttle earlier but now I'm going to is a threat. I want people to note that for the record. Another example of this is significantly different from four weddings and a funeral. The movie like in Bruges which you know well before Martin mcdonagh was being canceled for three billboards outside ebbing Missouri. He was writing really nasty. hilarious assassin in comedies. I hope he gets back to this style very soon because I love that movie very much the next two though I think are more closely associated with a kind of tree. Cly Sundance Story. Now these movies are both huge hits and are kind of emblematic of something and I will admit when I saw them for the first time I was like I liked this movie a lot. The two thousand wild different time very different time the two movies. I'm talking about our five hundred days of summer. But you may recall is the so additional Joseph Gordon Levitt Rom COM com.

"Driven by hatred prejudice and rage. They want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it not acceptable. It's not going to happen. Typical re election message would be to talk about what the president has accomplished and to talk about what he'd like to accomplish in the future. But that's not where his passion was his passion was in talking about various grievances talking about Hillary Clinton and the the locker up chance. And, and when he talked about the economy and trade and taxes, he really stuck to the script this accusation about Democrats wanting to erase people's votes. It's really interesting. What is he talking about there? He is talking about the rush investigation and Robert Muller's report and Democrats in congress still continuing to investigate him. And, you know, as he says wanting a do over with the investigation has very strong echoes of what he was saying, twenty sixteen about people, potentially stealing the election or rigging the election. But he continues with this. I in a way he is. He is taking his his upset and concern and, and worry about the investigations. And, and making it about his supporters pudding, taking it and placing it on them as well. I know that you talk to a lot of the president's supporters at the rally what's on their minds. Do they care that he's not saying that much that is forward-looking? No. Not really, what person I talked to was, like, you know, the rallies are all the same he'd been to sixteen of them. The rallies are all the same, but now he has more complements to talk about, you know what I heard from a lot of people both at the rally and in reporting leading up to it was a lot of talk about socialism. This is something that he talked about in the state of the union address and has been talking about in the many rallies held since then but his supporters are now talking about it, too. And in very personal terms. And we should say that, even though the president says that this election is going to be a choice between socialism and freedom. None of the democratic candidates, even Bernie Sanders who calls himself, a democratic socialist want sort of traditional, socialism, they're talking about social programs. Yeah. In a couple of seconds. We have left. I mean, the election is more than five hundred days away. We just expect this going forward. Yeah. The rallies will sort of slowly ramp up to be more frequent at this point is about one every two or three weeks. But this is what this is it. All right in for the long haul. NPR's Keith in Orlando.

"New poll shows Trump trailing Biden and four other Democrats from AMP, Brian Olten via Yahoo news. Very straight. I guess you this sort of aggregate, or the aggregate page that just takes neutral wherever again, they're only grabbing headlines they think fit their platform. That's why you see from Washington and nationwide. Fox News poll released Sunday shows President Trump trailing. Former vice president, Joe Biden, and no, fewer than four other democratic contenders. As early campaigning for the twenty twenty election begins to gain, steam a separate survey of battleground states by CBS shows Democrats strongly favored, Biden as the candidate most likely to be Trump in next year's elections. Well, wait a second. Wait a second. If you asked me, who's the democrat candidate, most likely to be Trump, I'll give you an answer. They did there with the wording. I missed that. If finished saying between Joe Biden, Donald Trump, who you choose betting say that what they said, was of the Democrats running who has the best chance to be Trump. I even answer that, too. And I'm not gonna vote for a democrat vote for Trump. I could say Bernie I could say by and I could see Harris. I can say Booker I could say any of them Buddha. Judge? Are they literally asking me if I think they'll beat the president? No. They're asking me who I think, has the best chance to did not saying between President Trump and Joe Biden who wins, that'd be a fair poll, wouldn't it? If. Okay. Here it is again. If you've listened is clearly because this is this is interesting to me, the separate survey of Belgrade states by CBS news shows Democrats, strongly favored, Biden as the candidate most likely to beat Trump in next year's elections. That I say he will that you say he's the most likely candidate to do. So the FOX polls showed by leading Trump by forty nine to thirty nine percent among all registered voters nationwide. While Senator Bernie Sanders, held this nearly the same advantage over the president forty nine to forty holding edges of one or two points over Trump, albeit, with the pulse report margin of error were senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala, Harris, as well as mayor Pete Buddha, judging, by the way, he's gay of south bend, Indiana. The polling comes more than five hundred days. Third twenty twenty election and attorney the political world one widely viewed tweet this week shows five presidents will Kennedy's recent decades, who trailed this point under campaigns including Trump, but who went on to win. I'm scrolling down. I'm looking for information. This is one of the only holing stories that have ever seen that doesn't show him anywhere. Polled warranted. The rise of dish. But does not say how many people were pulled, it just says of all voters. There are hundreds of millions of voters in this country. They can't possibly have pulled all voters that just isn't true. But there's a while, but the science really shows if we just ask seven hundred fifty people what they think that is indicative of what the country thinks give or take three points. Zogby recently said that the president was losing to Biden, and I believe, also, Bernie Sanders. Holiday. No Zoghbi set in two thousand four when it came to George W Bush, and John Kerry. I'm assuming that John Kerry was gonna win. On election day, not a year and a half before on election day, Zoghbi said John Kerry in landslide. He would have over three hundred electoral votes. Because people have the of this, but they have the ability to lie. So the exit polling was people would walk out, and they voted for Kerry, even other really voted for Bush. And then the news organizations knowing that it was unscientific slow reported it as if it was a landslide. They could not believe George. W Bush won rather easily over Jong. But he did. And it's the same thing, people were not going to admit they voted for Trump as they were walking out of the polling place. They didn't wanna be harassed him a hard time. They weren't wearing making great again. Hats. They walked out. They said they voted for for Clinton or they said, I don't want to say, and then they had a very small number of people actually entering the survey. And then they act like it's indicative of everything. First of all, it's done to do surveys versus Trump, this far out. They should be doing surveys. Clearly, only the Democrats versus the Democrats to see who the most popular democrat is, including Trump is dumb. He's busy being the president, although tomorrow he's going to be making a big announcement in Orlando. Your thoughts on polls, your thoughts on how they come up with this and next. We're going to have the, the secretary of the VA, Robert Wilkie you're gonna wanna wanna stick around for this on the Joe pags show. Stare don't.

"The Trump campaign's own polling suggests some problems for President Trump and key states and outside polls confirm that CBS news director of elections in surveys, Anthony Salvato says many Democrats think Joe Biden is the candidate who can win Democrats say they think those swing voters, the ones they got to try to lure back to the party might be more inclined to want a moderate, and even a white male for those swing voters. They think it'd be concerned about race and gender, even as the Democrats themselves, of course, have the most diverse primary field in history. Course elections, more than five hundred days away.

Care, a higher minimum wage. A two percent wealth tax on people worth over fifty million dollars and plans to help middle class families of college childcare and retirement, the kind of restraints on free market capitalism, that America has been debating and sometimes acting for a hundred years as. As a matter of fact, says Republican strategist Bruce Melman the corporate leaders he advises talking about the same basic question how to make capitalism work the way it's supposed to spend a lot of time, working with businesses and entrepreneurs and the long term challenges for the most successful capitalists in the world are making sure the capitalist system remains affective remains inclusive and remains demonstrably better than alternatives. Melman says when he listens to the Democrats, here's this Bernie AO see and some others aggressively suggesting that capitalism's time has ended. But the bulk of the party and certainly the bulk of the voters are looking for ways to improve the system as was done in the gilded age as was done around the great depression to have a more inclusive growth, back in two thousand sixteen even Donald Trump sometimes sounded like he was talking about this like on the very first day of his campaign when he wrote down the escalator at Trump Tower and said, sadly. The American dream is dead. One of the great ironies of what's happened. Is that the national numbers and the economy were pretty positive in twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen and candidate Trump really focused in on stagnant late is particularly for people who didn't have a college degree Democrats, like Tandon acknowledged that Trump painted a picture that resonated, with some voters, American capitalism, wasn't living the American dream for enough people. But then Democrats say Trump offered the wrong answer to the right question attacking immigrants. Starting a trade war, and cutting taxes, mostly for the wealthy. Democrats say they have better solutions to make sure the system provides more growth, broadly shared person. Hey, the democratic nominee is going to have to demonstrate the key or she will be good stewards of the economy and produce better results for more people, and they'll have to defend their plans to save capitalism from itself..

They saw this as an attack on the whole community. Really? And I think it had a chilling effect. Because also people thought that they could have ended up in a prison cell if they were telling the truth trying to do the right thing as they saw it. Well, this reminds what happened here because just last month a Myanmar's supreme court rejected their appeal. So what changed? Well, it's it's really haunts us to say what change, but it does seem that own sense Suci the. Effective leader of Myanmar. She's made a decision that there's been enough international condemnation here, and she and her mind is decided that these men should be freed as you say. There was a long legal process. They had a I appeal which was rejected a second appeal, which was then rejected and what we've seen today is an amnesty. And basically this is all to do with the Burmese new year often, you get political prisoners released as a good will gesture this has been a pretty unprecedented third wave of releases. So we are waiting for the last couple of weeks to see if they be set free and today, they have in jubilation for their friends and family and outside court where we were just a few hours ago chaotic, but also really happy scenes as they will return to their colleagues and family, well, and you spoke to alone, and he told you he never will stop being a journalist. But we wondering now how can they possibly the pressure on them as they work? Now seems to be pretty. Credible. Were this is I mean, these guys who came up with this investigation, which was really forensic and it St. tail they won as you say the Pulitzer prize for their efforts, they basically forced apology from the ministry if not an apology on admission of guilt that soldiers murdered ten Ranji men in Rakhine state in late twenty seventeen.

They should never have been convicted under rested in the first place. Arafat's you may recall had put out a report in September last year right after their sentences were first confirmed and that. Port detailed, the very dire situation or freedom of expression in Myanmar. And this has not changed. The report the Tumen authored featured testimony from alleged perpetrators witnesses and families of the victims. It was awarded the Pulitzer prize for international reporting in may as well as the twenty nine thousand nine UNESCO. Guillaume O'Connor weld press freedom prize. U N chief Antonio guitarist has said that he's following with great concern. Intensifying clashes in northwestern Syria that have claimed it yet more lives and displaced thousands in recent days, the secretary general's comments come amid reports of aerial attacks on population centres and civilian buildings within a demilitarized zone in southern rural. It live and northern rural hammer that has been guaranteed since last September by Russia and Turkey mister Gutierrez said he was alarmed at news that hundreds of civilians had been killed and injured in fighting between Syrian government forces supported by the allies and armed opposition forces, including isolate Filat at terrier, Al sham. He's called for parties to uphold international humanitarian law and protect civilians as the holy month of remedy and begins the UN human rights office. OH Chr said that at least seven health facilities have been struck since the twenty eighth of April along with several schools. Here's OH Chr spokesperson Ravina shandra Sahni, again, at least twenty seven civilians have been killed. And thirty one injured since twenty ninth of April. Although there are other estimates out there that are much higher. These are just the numbers that we have been able to fully verify. And this includes many women and children yesterday on the sixth of may government forces started to advance on the ground and captured villages from non state armed groups in northern Hama. Additionally, non-state groups carried out counter attacks in Latakia. So the violence is very much escalating and finally news of a global bid to stop snake bites killing or disabling hundreds of thousands of people year, according to the World Health Organization or WHO, which is leading the initiative snake bites effect up to two point seven million people annually and forty percent of victims are children the UN agency wants to cut that number by half by targeting rural communities and ensuring that victims have access to safe effective treatment often several anti-venom treatments on needed to cure snake bite victims WHO's at Dr Bernard at Baylor. Ridha told you a news one dose of anti. Venom currently can cost up to two hundred dollars a violent and an adult person needs at least four if not much much more. So it's a very very expensive product. So we need to try to influence the market get safe products and good products out there that are appropriate while agricultural workers and children are the most effected by snake bites. WHO says that children often suffer more severe effects than adults are into their smaller body mass one of the problems in treating people who've been bitten is a loss of confidence in available serums by health professionals and patients this has a road to demand full the medicines. But WHO intends to address this and other challenges when it launches its strategy for prevention and control later this month in Geneva. Daniel Johnson UN news.

"I can't wait to get back to my newsroom to roaches. Journalists jailed in Myanmar after they were convicted of breaking official secrets act walked free from prison on the outskirts of young after spending more than five hundred days behind bars to carrying they were ready to go back to work in those five hundred days, they have won a Pulitzer prize for this story, which proved army responsibility for massacre carried out in reclined state the area at the center of the ranger refugee crisis. The two I have become international symbols for press freedom, but they had this seven year sentences confirmed just a few weeks ago by the supreme court in Myanmar. But now, what known and chart sue out part of a general amnesty? However, not particular case speaking to local gender, just what Carol asked him, whether it was the international campaign on their behalf which might have been a factor in their release. Yes. The government says in the would hate to be perceived as our into international pressure and even before this release happened. I think some people will worry that in San cases. He paints national pressure on the government. My actually be counterproductive because they didn't domestically want to be seen as doing international news organizations or doing more western governments were telling them what to do. And I think there's a case just for being generally a bit cautious about attributing international pressure. As the reason hearing it certainly played a factor. I think the other factors dating with Harry's. It's customary for the government to release prisoners around this time of year anyway, because we've just had the water festival the new year. And I think we shouldn't lose sight virus. There was also some domestic pressure. You know, there was a campaign led by local journalists, and and some other human rights activists inside the country. So it's not as while enjoys caused with only being taken up abroad internationally by foreign dignitaries. And celebrities like a clearly, you know, there were journalists and campaign is underground speaking out on their behalf. That's an interesting reminder. I mean, one thing that is interesting is will the Myanmar government or any arm of want to take credit for this because it was such a headache in international perceptions of Myanmar as well who is going to claim credit for it. Can it be and sound sushi who has not supported them vocally a tall? Will it be the army? What is the effect of this going to be? I think you're touching on something that happens a lot. This is a bit of a merry go round ready because people will be arrested for criticizing the government for reporting that the military didn't lie there. Human rights activism, and they'll be giving these very harsh sentences, and then periodically released in these kind of while plans while stage public amnesties and for the military and for the government, they kind of get the best of both worlds because they get silence that critics they get to scare people off of this case doing reporting that they don't like that at the same time. They get to a pin nine enormous by saying for the good of the country for the good of the people. We're going to be pardoning prisoners now. So they're kind of worked by ways for them. And I don't think it's not they would want to explicitly claim credit, especially not for the release of these two journalists who are very very controversial inside the country. I mean, I talked about that being domestic campaign for their release. But that doesn't change the fact that a lot of people in inside me shed, a lot of animosity towards right in a lot of animosity towards journalists who have been reporting on this afternoon. Let me ask if it's had an effect on journalism and reporting this, of course, the case brought against them. Was highly controversial with a policeman. I seem to remember actually admitting that he had pretty much entrapped them. There was general acceptance that the incident that they had revealed had in fact taken place the army seemed to accept that. So what has the effect beam of their let's call it persecution? What's the effect of that being on other investigative work and general journalism in Myanmar? I think it sent a very loud and clear message to both local and foreign journalists work in this country. That was being described as genocide against the range at investigative work on that story is a red line for the military. And if you're going to go up to resign and stop digging around and looking into things like massacres and gathering evidence of the military's crimes against the rigid. They're gonna come down on you, pretty hard. So when so when they say that they they come out, and they want to go back to their newsrooms as seeing that children and their families. But they want to go back. They want to carry on. I'm working how difficult is it going to be for them to do that? I would be surprised if any journalists is failing gung ho about going up to refined. Stay and continue. This kind of work any journalist is is going to have to be extremely careful.

"I think there's one at a message from the something that that I think Jay alluded to earlier, which is the smartest small business. Marketing strategy is a strategy not tactic. And a lot of times. What you find many small business owners who are not marketing professionals will do the latch onto a tactic and say, okay, now need to just like amp up my Facebook page, and that's all I'm going to focus on and you know, one of the things that I try. Why share in the book is like there's a strategic way to use these different platforms. So for example, you know, there's probably three ways that you can use any social media platform way number one is a parking lot. Which is you register your brand name. And then you just say, look, I'm not updating my Twitter account because I don't use Twitter that much so visit me over here. So it's literally just a redirect. But at least you own the name, right? The second is to use it to gain understanding about your audience. So maybe you're not actively posting, but you're listening, right? You're lose using it to gain insight, and the third is to actually engage people actually post stuff into post content. And I think that the temptation for every not just small business owners. But everybody is to do everything on every platform. You know, not all of us can be as prolific as you know, as J, right? I mean, you know, we can't all be like posting stuff all the time. We don't have the personality for it. Right. Or we don't have the Dr. In the passion for it. And so part of the show is like, you know, I mean, you'll appreciate you guys will appreciate this. I started a Twitter account back maybe five years ago four book that I'd written and it was not my Twitter account for me. It was my Twitter account for the book. And I was tweeting as if I were the book, and then, you know, six months later, I was kinda done doing that. So now, I've got this other Twitter account, and it's like this traditional problem like him I to keep to Twitter accounts, right? Did one post on that Twitter account? They actually tell the story in the book and that one post said, hey, thanks for following me. I'm not actively updating this anymore. Why don't you follow road Bhargava over here on Twitter 'cause he tweets a lot more than I do. Clearly, he has more time. And it was kind of like this parking lot thing. That said, hey, I'm not updating this anymore. It's done go over here detour deter sign. Yeah. And I think has were frayed to do that. Like, it feels like this, man. I started this tutor account. Now, I gotta keep it going. Forever. It's funny. That's one of your trends in this year's trend book is deliberate downgrading, and it feels like that's what you have done with your Twitter account. You have downgraded it deliberately and turned it from. Way to you social number three into way to social number one. Yeah. I mean, you know, I've been blogging the fast. It's fascinating for me to think this. But I started logging in two thousand four so it's been fifteen years now that I've been blogging and couple years ago. I I stopped taking comments on any of my blow. Plus, I just removed the commenting me too. Yeah. Because I wasn't finding any value from it. And you know, if you had asked me back in two thousand four I would've told you the most important thing about social media's conversation, what kind of person wouldn't allow comments on their blog. Right. And you know, here we are more than a decade later saying, you know, what conversation is good, but like people posting stupid crop is. You know, I'm not the arbiter of that. Like, I don't need to create a place for people to be stupid, and those conversations happen in other places right at happens on like happens on Facebook and happens. They still happen. They are now in a different venue, in some cases. Yeah. I mean, you have to we always say as a company that does a lot of social media strategy, Adam as well is if you have a strategy that is more than five hundred days old, you don't actually have a strategy that you do. And I think, you know, blog comments is just one proof point for for that kind of thinking. Right..

And he happens to be the greatest fighter to ever fighting out. So I think that Jon, yeah. I think the John John's too, many coincident, I do think you're right that you have to go with the fact that at one point this guy was doing something. Right. And why we're saying that because it? Like, the exact reason there was that's what the results say. However is he the greatest fight at every step in the octagon one hundred percent degrees. Prove that without unequivocally yesterday. One hundred percent did he prove it without drugs yesterday in my opinion, one hundred percent. He's he he is. He is a phenomenal. Well, he was pop December this month for the picograms will. So how you get there? Probably another substitute wasn't performance enhancing. Nobody has taken them in the past. I believe he probably has. But still I just think he's beyond a shadow of a doubt the greatest fighter ever stepping down. Yeah. Yeah. But he looked so impressive. I was let me ask you this. Let's say his next fight. He fails again, it's PICO Graham levels even higher when we do that. I don't know does not count. I do just give them a flag. He's the science is going to tell us what we have to stick to the science. And I think we have to stick to independent labs, which is what's happening. And we'll let's let's see what the experts really on the science. Remember detailed stuff that scientists are. Let's let's go only with what the scientists say. So the signs said trickier study was like only with Cuomo phen-, that's the closest thing they can go, right? And then their study ended at like two two hundred something days John Jones pot more than five hundred days afterwards with there's no. The study that shows that they did one study actually Novitsky said that this is not unprecedented that there has been long layoffs where you were still seeing residual results for two hundred days or two days.

Yes. And I I get what you're saying. However, in my opinion, John j-o-h-n fights in my opinion. No matter what like in that situation. I let them fight and situation. I say your cloudy. I'm sure everyone's cloudy. I watched it. But at what point do we just if he lets every this is every fight does. He just get a free pass to figure it out. They have to figure out what them their system because if you don't think view deal keeps popping PICO. But no one else does. Yeah. That not just a free pass to pop on those people grams. We know we know according to independent people like the McLaren report because there's not enough matter stars enhancing. There's no done. But we know that that that that according to the science and experts out there that these this is not an and this is why he was exonerated. It's not performance enhanced time of it.
