"It sounds like a nineteen eighty. But there's no kids and usually less joy it's sort of a haven for middle aged men to go and smoke and play and the kind of lose themselves from this trans in fact if you ask a reputable person like Mr Tiny Ohka the president of a university do you like to play Pachinko I I don't like they may sound taken aback. Pray uncles too. Noisy and sometime to smokey. I don't like those environment so I don't play but a lot of people do. This is not some fringe thing. There are fewer than one million slot machines in America but there are more than four million Pachinko Pachinko machines in Japan and Japan is a smaller country. Some estimates say the amount of money going into the industry is equal to four percent of Japan's GDP four percent the amount of money would circulate through the machines is a jaw-dropping figure. We're talking two hundred billion dollars per year but Pachinko has seen better days. Most young people would rather stare at their phones than pay to stare at some machine. Michael Penn says this decline means. Many shops are scared to close right now. Even briefly these companies which are already on the edge of bankruptcy may get pushed over the ledge in fact if parlour does stay open they get extra business because they're more responsible rivals are not open but what about public shame what if reporters show up to the Pachinko parlor like this news. Crew did recently in the city of Sendai filming in the parking lot located annual ticket. Aid Cindy Sheehan anal matching well. Michael go industry analyst. He says that just lets the hardcore gamers know that some shops are still open. The defiant companies may in a morally dubious way be benefiting economically from their social irresponsibility. Hearts of Japan are now looking to relax the state of emergency which means more Pachinko joints could open soon. Whether the more casual players will come out choosing to pack into a smoky parlor with strangers during a pandemic that remains to be seen for the world. I'm Patrick win with a star spangled mask covering his face. Us Secretary of State. Mike pompeo arrived in Israel today for a lightning. Visit the official focus of his talks with Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu was Iran and the corona virus. But pompeo did not miss the opportunity to take a swipe at China your partner you share information unlike some other countries trying skate and hiding that information. We'll talk about that country to unofficially though. Pompeii EOS visit focused on Israeli plans to annex large parts of the West Bank. Netanyahu says the plans are subject. Us agreement POMPEII says it's up to the Israelis to decide and both sides are pushing to move forward on the issue. Dan Shapiro is a former. Us Ambassador to Israel under President Obama. So what does it actually mean for both sides for the Israelis and the Palestinians plan? That actually has no chance of ever being implemented as the president presented it. There's no Palestinian leader and virtually no support among the Palestinian public for a plan that would leave the West. Bank carved up into disconnected chunks That have really none of the elements of a sovereign state. So there's not extra going to actually be negotiations around this plan. The part that's implementable in the near term and the part they seem to be pushing for is for Israel to annex thirty percent of the West Bank the Jordan Valley and all the West Bank settlements. And that would have the effect of Israel controlling In sovereign way territory that essentially makes The West Bank accomplish Swiss cheese map so no negotiations. Palestinians are not at the table and according to the State Department Pompeii. Oh came to Israel by invitation of Netanyahu plans to bring annexation to a vote as soon as July first. So why the rush? There's a new Israeli government that will be sworn in tomorrow just power-sharing government between Prime Minister Netanyahu and his bank rivaled blue and white party. The Prime Minister does have the authority to bring up the annexation issue as early as July. First now they have said. There is a joint committee between the United States and Israel to determine mapping process to figure out exactly what areas Israel would annex. But it's a very technical process. The United States committed to support thirty percent. But there will certainly be some Israelis who advocate more. And so. I don't think they're going to be able to do this by July first but I do think that president trump would like to see some form of annexation. Take place sometime before the election. There's no groundswell of support for Israeli annexation on the American public or even American Jewish community. And there's a lot of mainstream opposition but it is popular among some parts of president. Trump's space in a certain evangelical voters and right wing members of the Jewish community and president. Trump seems to be focused on trying to excite and energize that base. They'll come out in large numbers in November. It's it's anything more of a priority for the trump administration than for this divided Israeli government to proceed with annexation in the next few months over the past. Twenty four hours. European leaders have said they're considering economic sanctions on Israel if they move ahead with annexation but it sounds like you don't see this actually going forward. I don't see it going forward by July. I if the Israeli government take some time to try to determine these technicalities which very complicated and that process slides into august-september much closer to the American election. They have to grapple with another concern. That is that vice president biden the presumptive Democratic nominee in virtually all democrats have expressed. Opposition to unilateral annexation. So this is a somewhat risky. Move to take a step that as really no international support except from the trump administration in what could be the final weeks of the administration so to put it in blunt terms ambassador regardless of when unilateral annexation would happen. Israel would get everything at once. The Palestinians don't get anything they want. Where does that leave the Palestinians in fact there are some Israelis to think that the trump plan is insufficient That what they really want is to reject even the notional idea of a Palestinian state. But it's very likely that the Palestinian Authority would find it difficult to sustain itself in the years to come. It wouldn't necessarily collapse overnight but it will soon undergo a leadership. Transition President would bosses in mid eighties. He's not in great health and when a new leader emerges it would be very difficult. Perhaps for that leader to justify sustaining a Palestinian Authority. That is not on the pathway toward independence that creates this situation of binational state with roughly equivalent Jewish and Arab populations. It's not likely to be a very stable environment or really healthy for either of them But that's the direction that unilateral annexation leads to F- Former. Us Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro. Thanks very much. You're welcome. It's official Cova. Nineteen is feminine in the French language. It's a lock coveted Disner. If not look of it yes. It is time for a little French lesson as with most other romance languages. Every Noun in French has its own gender and the body that polices the language. Adamy says was sick of people. Waffling between the masculine and feminine. When talking about the disease like me is a centuries. Old Secretive club led by men exclusively until nineteen eighty. They're known as the immortals and they dictate the grammar of the French language their reasoning for making covert nineteen female makes sense they say that because cove nineteen stands for the Corona Virus Disease of twenty nine thousand nine hundred and the word disease in French's Feminine Lot Malady therefore so is covered nineteen so we get LACO VID DIS Neuf. Interestingly enough if you wanted to say the corona virus that is masculine Lou Villas. Apparently Quebec had been using the correct form. All along as for the rest of you.
