"The match against Ecuador. They agreed following the practice. They then requested to chat with the president directly. They have a clear opinion until the president will make it public soon and at the proper moment for my opportunity. African champions Algeria, Mauretania for one in a friendly match in builder, two goals from Galatasaray midfielder Sofiane figure Lee, Adam Yunus and Baghdad Bernadette Beneath the Dodge. Sorry, scoring the attitude for the desert foxes. Cameroon will be looking to beat Nigeria for the first time in 20 years as they play in a friendly match in Austria. Next. We're going to be looking at the NFL. Uh, the National Football League has promised it will no longer settle concussion lawsuits using race based formulas that assume black players have lower cognitive function. Why was it using them to begin with? And how did it affect black retired players who allege their on field concussions have given rise to brain injuries and cognitive disorders like dementia? I've been I've asked Professor Catherine Post seen a neurologist at the University of California, San Francisco. To determine if a patient has experienced a decline in their memory or other thinking skills. A neuropsychologist compares the patients test performance to the average performance of a group of healthy people. These are norms, which choose a reference sample that is of similar age and sometimes same sex, same level of education. Well with race norms. The reference sample is of the same race, too. So is an accepted practice, and it's certainly lowers the benchmark that a player would have to meet to qualify for an award. In other words, by requiring that the black norms are used. The NFL therefore makes fewer payouts. Why is it only just being dropped? So there were a couple of retired players that led a case, Mr Henry and Mr Davenport. So we heard about this coming out last summer, where they accused the NFL of denying There are awards because race norms were not used. In other words, their clinicians diagnosed than with dementia, but didn't use the black norms. And so then the end they accused the NFL of them, requiring that the race norms be retroactively applied and in doing so, They no longer qualified for an award. So this is what really brought this whole system to light in the case of the NFL. Obviously, you can't judge someone's mental capacity based on the color of the skin, right. That's what's happening. People with black skin are being assumed to have a lower cognitive baseline and in terms of like the NFL's current players It's a majority Black League. There must be concerned that even though they said they're going to get rid of this system that does seem discriminatory. Yes, absolutely. I think you know, we are all very curious to see what happens next. And I truly hope that, um they come up with a solution that no longer includes race at all in the formula. I just don't think it's appropriate. Here is an example of racism. I think the way that the norms are being applied in the case of the NFL is racism because it's systematically making it more difficult. For blacks to qualify for a monetary award. And in terms of the next steps going forward. What do we What do you think will happen? Frankly, this case has really exposed. You know a major weakness in the field of neuropsychology in general, and I don't have the perfect solution to pull off a shelf to give the NFL Almost every NFL players. Certainly everyone that I've spoken to in clinical practice has experienced many concussions. So it's not a question of whether these players have experience concussions. The question is whether they have experience subsequent cognitive decline, decline in their memory and other thinking skills that is severe enough to interfere with their everyday function. That's dementia. It's caused by progressive brain disorder that results from repeated blows to the head, concussive and sub concussive blows. I think the best solution is going to be correcting for other social factors such as education as much as we can. But frankly, most of the normative data available on these widely used tests don't have, um, the all the corrections that we really should have for precise form of medicine. So the best that they can do is correct for some basic demographics like education, and I think, just take race off the table. That was a neurologist professor Catherine Post scene there from the University of California, San Francisco. Have a little bit more sport later on for you. Now. Mount Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of Congo erupted almost two weeks ago, and Goma's residents are slowly starting to return to the city. But how safe is it? Alan Cassie just started off today's episode of Africa Daily by speaking to James and Zavala, who runs the Goma Serena Hotel. He described his experience Of the eruption. Once the eruption took place for around 56 days, you could not see the view of the mountain was covered with ashes. But is that last Saturday is when Maori were able to see review of them. And so in the evenings when it's not cloudy you can clearly now see the beautiful lagoon was standing out of a shadow in Goma. So now we are able to see the mountain from the hotel and from the town. Meaning that the issues of clear I wonder when your Workmates your colleagues at work. The people who live in that area are talking and you're listening into their conversation. What does that teach you about those people? Why don't they leave that area? Why don't they evacuate? Because even if you know gaga is not A threat at the moment. It's just a question of time before it happens again. Uh, you know what people say, East or West home is the best is where they were born. Most of these people is where the live looter. I think people look at it as um There's a not a very big threat. And if you look at the past eruptions, 1977 was was then the one in 2000 and two was not as worse as the previous one. And then if you look at the events of this eruption in May 2020 One. They're less. I mean, the volcano didn't reach the town just covered some, uh few villages. Some people I think look at it is becoming less a risk as the the lover erupts and flows. It's kind of diminishing from the underground. The reason was so I think people are just optimistic. And this is their home. This is where they were born. This is what they call on for them. So even if the eruption came and swept the town like it did in the previous events, people would still come back. And they inhabit. They will still come and tribute. The gonna s specialists who are observing their almost saying that the volcano I mean, you know you could have died, but.

"This week with nancy yousef from the wall street journal also with us robert mora correspondent for it news. And daniel kurtz falen editor at foreign affairs well. This week president biden called for cease fighter. Fire in the tigray region of ethiopia and a white house statement on the seven month long conflict he said quote the large scale human rights abuses taking place in tigray including widespread. Sexual violence are unacceptable and must end. The statement went on to say. The united states is committed to helping ethiopia address these challenges building on the longstanding ties between our two nations and working with the african union united nations and other international partners in quote. Dan catches up. What is this conflict about so this was a conflict that started right around the time when americans were distracted by the drummer around our election. This the roots of this go back to the the previous theun government was which was led by the tigray people's liberation front it was then displaced by prime minister a couple of years ago. I'd be augmented was probably most on people's radars for winning the nobel peace prize a couple years ago from ending another conflict but as political tensions between the f. and then prime minister had started to certain to mount and tensions grew. He launched this offensive into tigray. Which is this region in northern ethiopia which has been created this terrible humanitarian catastrophe in the seventh month war as you said which has involved abuses not just by by the ethiopian army which is recipient of a lot of american aid and support but also by lots of other allies including including the airtran army including sort of regular forces that are that are aligned with the government that are committing lots of these abuses that that you refer to in your question and what you see from the us is during the trump administration. Think a little bit more resistance to getting closely involved in these kinds of conflicts abroad and you see this return to more traditional all kinds of american diplomacy where it's seen is the role of the administration to To try to do what it can to get a ceasefire in in situations like this anti the. Us pick now to weigh in. I think a couple of reasons. We saw Reports of Atrocity cnn had a really detailed report about people being beaten pushed out of displaced camps reports of rape humanitarian workers. Being killed and i think it created a a put a spotlight really on sort of the the level of violence and the of sexual assault in particular that is happening in that region we've seen Hundreds of thousands displaced. In this. In this time and i it was just. It was so graphic in terms of how they described it and then we've humanitarian work was killed just in the last week so i just think there was a feeling that the level of violence in our awareness of islands had really ramped up. Remember that throughout this conflict journalists have not been able to see The way many Would think new york times journalist for example was just Forced to leave in the week. And so it's not been easy to get a window on what is happening there and so i think that was part of it and also that the us has a special envoy for the horn of africa and that there's an opportunity now potentially to have that on void. Jeffrey feldman travel and backed with A president who wants to see a dialogue begin such that. We can see a potential into this conflict. Well let's move away from the horn to central africa. Goma is a city in the democratic republic of congo and home to around seven hundred thousand people residents they are still reeling from the eruption of mount near gone. Go this past weekend. And their troubles aren't over. Unfortunately large parts of the city have been evacuated because of fears. The volcano will erupt again. Robert what impact is this natural. Disaster had on the city well. I've had several reporting assignments in my create gomer. The breakers have always after the nine hundred ninety four. Rwandan genocide intenders tens of thousands of hutu refugees fled into goma and died all around us of cholera really traumatic scenes and a and blighted city at the best of times and now it has in addition to the political violence and the economic desolation. It's got this great sort of geological disaster unfolding. Once more i mean mount nyiragongo is regarded as perhaps the most dangerous volcano in the world is delighted. Just a north of goma just a few miles of it so it's got to a major but very impoverished city at its foot and most distinctively. It has this lava lake in its crater highly active. And there's always the fear that has this sort of frightening chemistry if you like. It can lead to a sudden release of of deadly carbon dioxide and methane. And i think in the last twenty four hours be new fishes showing that possibility exists again so in a way is not just the danger of lava it's also carbon dioxide and methane and understand that at the foot of this volcano is. This is this major city of over a million people with a really poor infrastructure. There's no easy evacuation plan all resettlement plan. So it is this perfect storm if you like of a natural disaster compounded by by politics and and desperately poor economic conditions well so no wonder that people are there pleading for the international community to give gomer and this natural disaster more focus and more attention well in case between royal dutch. Shell and climate change activists. The activists came out victorious. this week. The hague district court ruled in favor of friends of the earth international saying shell needs to reduce its emissions. Forty five percent by twenty thirty mark. Carney is the un special envoy for climate action and finance. And he told cnn it was a sign of things to come. There needs to be a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for heavy hitters..

"The world erupted. Mount nyiragongo is only around fifteen kilometers from the center of the city of goma. In the east of the democratic republic of congo as molten lava began to flow into gomez hurts. Many of the city's residents were caught unaware some were forced to flee for safety to neighboring rwanda. Many others remain missing most of all years. Just of wacky is it or cullum. Era is the head of a local ngo that has a shelter vulnerable youths. He's taken in nearly fifty children who've been separated from their parents and seen hundreds more families looking for their children on saturday night at a bite. Six thirty i was heading out for dinner and i started getting messages from people saying that near volcano was erupting. Olivia writes about central africa for the economist. The sky was glowing orange and filled with smoke and people were running in different directions. Trying to get out of the city since the volcano. I erupted but a lot of the actress turned off across town. A lot of the water supplies a cutoff. Water pipes have be melted by the molten lava. And we're having very regular earthquakes about every twenty minutes. My house rattles. I've got various friends who've moved in who had living in taller buildings. I'm gonna bungalow and we've been advised to get out of tall buildings as the earthquake seem to be getting stronger. And what do we know about the human cost so far anyway. The death toll at thirty four around five hundred houses have been flattened by the lava and according to unicef their hundred children who are still missing and separated from their families. I went to one of the sites which was badly affected. This area called behani and it had just been totally flattened by the molten lava burnt. High-seas used to stand there. Were just smoking black rocks and the sulfur smoke coming off them and one man. I spoke to charles come by not was taking amongst the rubble. He was picking up scraps of metal and he's sort of burnt scorched pans and pots. And he said he had. This is my house and ahead just been reduced to rubble a wedding. When the eruption happened with his wife and his two eldest children arabe his youngest children ages six and two were staying in the house being dumped by the neighbors and he hasn't seen them since also another thing to mention. is that in in goma. Most people keep all of their money in their houses. So you lose your house and you lose all of your savings and you've got nothing. Yesterday i was in various centres the centers that were looking after children who had lost their parents whenever on fled because it's complete chaos people fleeing in all different directions and i spoke to a four year old boy. They're very sweet boy at a red cross shelter and he said that he had fled with his friends but he didn't know where his friends are gone so he was alone and on saturday night he walks for twenty kilometers to a nearby time with a group of children and he'd been since rescued and taken to the shelter and was hoping to find his parents and the residents of goma must live in fear of this giant volcano on their doorstep going looms over goma and lost erupted in two thousand and two and it was much worse so hundreds of people killed and at least one hundred and twenty thousand people were left homeless. The volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. I spoken honest. He said is the most dangerous volcano in africa partly because it's incredibly close to densely populated city. It's only about ten kilometers away from the skirts of goma and the lava is also very fast flowing. Said the lava was one of the fastest flowing lavas in the world and what about the residents who've been displaced this time around to what's happened with what will happen with them. Throughout the nights on saturday nights families were fleeing towards the rwandan. Border lugging possessions behind them and kitchen pots. I was actually at the border. And that was just gridlock. Traffic and five hundred meters and at some point people started to panic and run across the border and people just running buddha there by about three thousand. Five hundred people crossed over that night but for lots of people in goma sadly. It's not the first time they've had to flee. This region's been affected by conflict. Over twenty five years there are lots of different armed groups hiding in the bush to goma at the moment iran five million congolese people displaced within the country as a result largely of conflicts. And how has that displays until about political instability affected goma's preparedness for another eruption. It's difficult to monitor. The volcano is boots of okinawa. Said that often the equipment get stolen from the topic volcano but unfortunate. It's not the only problem. The volcano center was funded by the world. Bank the funding. Tom run out in october. Twenty twenty because there are allegations of embezzlement within the organization and the world bank didn't renew their funding so the volcano center has received very little funding in the last seven months. They weren't monitoring the volcano pops. His classes they would otherwise have been. The eruption came as a surprise to most people. There were no warnings products that this was something we should prepare for. Most of the people whose houses have been flattened to probably just gonna have to melt into neighboring communities there no camps to go to. There's going to be difficult for the host communities and look after them because people in goma very poor most people survive on less than two dollars a day. Congress government is miles away in kinshasa the capital which is more than one thousand five hundred kilometers away and it has a long record of neglecting. Its people in the east. So i don't expect the people affected to receive a huge amount of support from the government. So you say that goma has been lucky until now butson is not out of the woods yet. No so tremors are still shaking the city on tuesday at around lunchtime. A building collapsed in the center of goma their earthquakes by every twenty to thirty minutes and all the windows and doors in my house rattle. The earthquake seem to be getting stronger. Which could be a bad sign. That pressure is building within the volcano. There's a fisher which is opened up close to the hospital. Small gap and people are worried. That love could burst out of that and that would really be in the center of time for now. The situation is very unpredictable. And we just wanna keep a close eye on what's happening. Are you not tempted to evacuate yourself. Not yet but i'm ready to evacuate if i need to. I have my cova tests. Said that means i can get across the border into rwanda without too much difficulty if i have to live highs on the lake so i've got a boat at the ready in case i need to float away which is actually one of the best escape routes by the lake. So i've got a kayak paddle say my housemate. Something i can get into the lake. We need to.

"On the 25th of May, George Floyd was killed by the police officer Derrick Show, Vin. Here on he's in jail now awaiting sentencing after being found guilty of murder after nearly one George Floyd's neck for over nine minutes. Torch. Floyd's death sparks protests against racial injustice across America and around the world. But how's it affected? The African American residents of his home city of Minneapolis in particular? Well, Dr Abdullah Mari is the founder off a M O enterprise. That's a training institute. Specializes in leadership development, diversity, equity and inclusion. I caught up with him a short time ago, and I began by asking him how the death of George Floyd had affected him personally. I did grow up in south Minneapolis. It's affected me, and I think a lot of other folks in a number of ways you know, folks have called it a racial reckoning. I think for many of us who are black African American who have kind of known these things over the years. It's a what took so long for people to realize this was happening, and then a mix of hopefulness but also a healthy skepticism about what might come in. A future. Where does that skepticism come from? Well, I think it comes from a history that has proven to us that we should not be overly optimistic because we've seen things that have taken place over and over again in the history in our context and the interaction between African Americans. And policing is a very, very thorny issue. Where would you begin with that? Well, I think we have to recognize that in general, if we were to take race out of it, there is policing that's happened in the United States that is overwhelmingly aggressive and then when you recognize the racial dynamics In a kind of dis aggregate. The data we know that the chances of say an indigenous person or a black African American person to have a violent encounter with police goes up even more. And so I think we have to be very aware. That law enforcement in the United States has a history of being aggressive towards citizens just period on then, if we look at the origins of policing in the United States, we also know that it began with Law enforcement attempting to keep black people in slave. And so that historical perspective is very important as well. And some of the tactics are still being used today. Give us an example. Well, so a zoo you think about terms of tightening the noose, for example, which was something that was on live television. During protests in the previous summer in 2020, even just the language to describe how we're trying to get a crowd to calm down or arrest them. Or what have you when you say something like tightening the noose that is direct lineage from nooses that were meant to hang black people in the history of the United States organization is all about inclusion, Leadership development, diversity equity if there was greater representation. Of the African American community within the police force will get another institutions as well. What kind of difference do you think that would make? I certainly think that would make a difference. And I think there's a level of empathy when you share experiences with people that come from similar backgrounds with you, that might not be shared otherwise. And so I think that that would certainly help things. I also think that you know the routes of policing that I was talking about earlier have to be front and center. No matter what. Racial background. Someone might come from who's in law enforcement on S O. Those things I think are important complements to one another for us to be thinking about as law enforcement goes forward. It's a huge conversation in America, isn't it? It's about societal change. And that takes a very long time. You were a firm believer as you've already illustrated about being honest about America's recent slave past and going way back as well with Native Americans on the land that was effectively Taken from them. Do you think that if we need to go back that far to have that reckoning to put America on a footing from which it can move forward? 100%. I mean, frequently in my work and personal conversations. People are asking questions like how did we get here? How did we end up in this situation in the reality is that we're operating in a system that has been built on dynamics that have been working well, and that's why we are actually in situations that were in and so having a conversation about the past, the things that have happened the systems that have been created to get us to where we're at what, actually, um My mind, answer a lot of questions for people around. How is this the case Because it will say, Oh, it makes perfect sense. And so then we need to either change the system that were operating in or try to create a new one. And so I think that that's absolutely critical. Dr Abdullah Mari there from AM Enterprise, which is a training institute specializing in diversity, equity and inclusion. Speaking to me earlier Let's talk once again about Mount Nyiragongo,.
