freeCodeCamp with Quincy Larson
"To make as well so let's first just talk about products surface area. Sure so free co camp is really three different core applications. There's the curriculum and. Portfolios? That's one of the pillars. And that is all custom code part. That's when we say the platform nationally what we're talking about we also have. A free co Camp Dot Org Slash News, which is our publication and published several articles today they're often in-depth explanatory journalism about technology. Then we have the free forum, and that's the third pillar of Free Co camp now. All three of those run on separate servers, the free cocaine forum is powered by discourse, which is a really cool self hosted open source form tool created by the founder of flow. Jeff Atwood in his. And that's very well maintained, and you can get your own discourse running really easily if you want to. You can just deploy to the cloud, and it'll live on its own server in docker container, and there you go. Same thing with free. Co Camp Dot org slash news that is running on ghost, which is another self hosted open source project that just released version three of their tool, and it's like wordpress, but it doesn't have a lot of the baggage that comes with wordpress. wordpress is excellent. But it does have some vulnerabilities in it does have. A very complicated plugin system in wordpress is trying to do a lot of things whereas ghost is just trying to be. A publication tool. So we have maybe. Seven thousand articles on. Free Co powder slash news at this point and we have. Hundreds of thousands of posts on free cochem dot org slash. So those are those who now if you want, I can drill into what powers the frequent camp platform the core curriculum. Please do yeah, so we are running. React on the front end. We're running known. As the back end were running a tool called loop. which is. An API tool. It essentially turns your rap into an API where all the routes. Can, confess chase on as well they shemale. It's something that's already baked into tools like ruby on rails like with ron rails. You take any euro. You could just put dot Jason at the end of it and get a Jason Representation of that of the data in that route so. Does a lot of that stuff. We ease Mogadishu for database and we have managed cluster. On 'em lab and we're working on moving that over to Mugabe's new atlas tool. Atlas. 'EM! Lab was acquired by Manga to be recently, so they're kind of sunsetting 'em lab. I think so. We're in the process of moving everything over. To have a big sharded system because we have a lot of data. We've got millions of records, and each of those records has these of challenge completions. And a whole lot of other data that they've added to their portfolio and the portfolios themselves were working on growing them, and making them a lot richer in terms of just having a lot more data like you can submit a whole different projects you've built from. Outside of the Free Co curriculum as well if you built your own. Jobs script game for example you could submit that and turn that into a kind of like a Lincoln light four developers, so we're working on that the platform itself in terms of the curriculum. Is. A gatsby APP and you hit that. Euro Free Co Camp Dot org slash learn and the entire curriculum loads. And it stays in your browser. It. Of Challenges, and then when you complete challenges, it will post those to the server, and if you disconnect from the server for some reason, you can keep completing challenges than when you reconnected a push that back up to free Co camp servers, so we're very close to having be fully offline. Functional APP like a progressive

The satellite joined Bananas Salmon Marshall Absolute Pleasure to have you invoice. How we going is big really good Saif Sand and happy to be working side gang to be bringing you the best of Roseville this weekend and right around the country of course but I'll tell you something right now. Hug taught him how many has never looked better from the. Toronto's you look terrific today hugging Ka. That's the best I can but nausea to courtney love a band hall. At the moment we are in one. But we're going to get out of these we're GONNA roy stick fatty hiking winners. Send us only away from Josie. Now we know where we started. Tweet we stop at Joseph's track report the prohibit loss. Wait let's let's recap these second he said. You gotta be gotta be pies on spayed. Di Di all were. And they'll be coming off the route of the middle of the track. Josie absolutely not last week Josie placed hammers. She got something for this. Well hopefully we can get something Roy this week as well look ask seeks maters. We'd go at a little bit. Further soft seeks at the moment so expecting fifteen meals on Thursday fraud. I expecting I Ryan but Saturday expecting zero to six meals a gain so I think we're going to be in that soft seek seven Ryan Account. Expect these track to draw it really interesting to get further off the rile. Not so much the case he really own speed again but even horses. Just on the riles or a big advantage. When it goes eight six made is in the soft six Ryan. So don't be surprised. If the riles are the place to be. Look back to rile fullback rows. You could probably still win so darn expecting to get too far off. The fence are now. That's the pattern that was last week. And you sort of Virginia again. This week I think would be the case this week. Woy think they might go for horses. They're hard up against the rows one-two-three lines this Saturday. The Guy. We've heard that I very good Josie. Let's jump into the rights now. I rice. We're going to have a look at of course is the Tankard. I've a twenty four hundred metres very elegant. You're five and deservedly so to five followed in the market village. That five dollars Mugabe does muster g non does Mirage dancer in southern France both thirteen dollars tariff at twenty three dance area twenty-six truth at thirty one dollars Josie. We'll go to you and the map here. Really Secular Fahey woolley done. There's a lot of speed on Piper. Roy think very elegant will roll forward. We saw her roll forward last seven days ago when she was just beaming boy a dive. I think they'll roll forward John McCain take deposition Angel Truth Going forward I think four nail you'd expect to be at its fetus. Mugabe possibly could go forward. I think now it's had its second. Go at twenty four hundred meters. It could possibly roll forward. And there's a few days that just don't have the yearly gates paid to be able to do that with very elegant fourth. This time last year she was fourth option. One the CEO. She went really well. I think they said something really. Well spoke about that Rice where she finds finished second to die. He's a superstar. We spoke with these inform. One hundred and twenty-five die have absolutely gone extremely slow in that Rice lost weight but twenty two or three to eleven to seek time clearly the best laws four hundred lost two hundred of the die by far just close to half a second best boycot or. I think she'll win. I think she'll roll forward. John macrobiotic control the rice and she'll be two affiliates. Yea won this race last year. Two dollars sixty seven to a dollar sixty but that was off the back of winning the brain but somewhat unlucky in Australia Cup with issues. He's not going as well for me. Plus doesn't have the tactical advantage that very elegant will have always very elegant in the tankard. She proved a class. Last docked ships loomed up. It was a terrific Roy. Thomas macron Donna. Because he was able to take it up. A heated flat spot very elegant nosing front about he was able to fought back and Buddha. A love the way she held and she backed up once before that was from the white fool. Obviously into the Oxygen Victoria. Sh we know she's a two thousand four hundred made a win in the. She's charrier off by very elegant and I think rolling forward outside of Angel of truth or couldn't imagine she'd give up that advantage and get into a NAS rhythm and then settle for the twenty four hundred Mehta Gallup with that Mirage dancer and Moussagy. I think Mr. Jeez the best at solder in this field. He beat southern France over in Europe when they last met day. And I up. Winning these runs behind master on was terrific last dot. Ob It on a heavy non draw surface. He could improve out of the Ground Ivy. These trip most ability. He's not going as well Mugabe wait got group three. He comes up another level he so it's very elegant rice to win. Technically he bought oil Weiss. I look for a broad from one of these jockeys to get rolling at the item. I can take away that breeds and that turn of foot from very elegant and it might be the Rod on Moussagy. Just quickly you did mention. It was a really good. Pick up to mention that she did back up in the visa off the white full she actually filed she seven so there is. There's a slight knock. It could be that. Maybe she doesn't back up. She needs some link. Between Iran's bought. The profile was perfect but are just want to punish that you mentioned it so. It's really good to cy that she has backed up before she rented finished seventh in the works and she was four dollars. It was a foul issue variety wrong. That's the case. I think that animated well You guys know nothing more than when you hit the sign. That horse especially in a group want now. Let's have a look at the voluntary. Well I'll tell you what we're GONNA shorter Ye. Gentlemen Don Wait Funds. Ta Adults Seventy Five. So I'm interested. He chance they probably don't four. Forty MARKET GETS FROM THE PAINTINGS. Twelve bucks for say no and Missile Mantra. Both Iden- Does as got twenty shot about twenty. Six game of thrones. Twenty seven nudge. Forty six dollars and then just over the page aspect ratio. Best of the rest at sixty one dollars Josie funster very short but is justified. I think so. I think she's an absolute potential superstar. If she's not already there just with the Matt I think she had the barrel forward but again not a lot of speed on pipe. Pontes aspect ratio. I think we'll go forward and here. I think where the rights can be won or lost. I think that he's talked to clearly. Have between them they both exceptional phillies hard to knock either of them. But I think our probably roll forward as well and I just don't know where the problem beale has that tactical speed to be able to do that. Third up he fund star in the spring on the floor knocking off probably'll it was a dollar seventy four or five hundred one three and a half links. I just think these rice. It's up so much like that Rice They went extremely slow. Start yes fun. Style was in the advantage position and just had the technically vintage probably it was pretty good ren very close to debate and link not even that but they've come home twenty five twelve thirty four. That was the best of the die by a significant margin. They would've won the Kumo. They used to run the Cornell if they decided to run. They've got panels on the wrist. They got panels on the is the too serious racehorses going forward with both of them but I think fund star will have the tactical advantage and she's an absolute beauty. She will be but the last question overdrawn barrier right. She's she'll be in two minds early doors where the row. Ford and talking. Just come back and rod for a little bit of luck. I think that plays into the hands of probably joining soda. A breach of the China of probably Siamese. She's not based on a wet track in which funds stop later on last stat and she was able to technically outlawed on that occasion. But I love the white probably going fishy. V that she's had she's GonNa run a good tooth estimators. She can jump and lane close out and be wrought on fun styles hammer wherever she wants to sit in this field. These are clearly the 2-based horses in this race by five and ninety bad luck will bring one of these two undone because missile mantra as IAGO. Who won the Kimball Grind classic an Old Sisa painted and shout the Bio? Come through that time rice. This is another level up to Probably'll and found status. I based on that inside a barrier Kerrin mcevoy. If you're watching go and watch you'll lasting group one winners might and try and get to means Barack Obama. You just seen a bit of a hall.

What are Kenya and Somalia really fighting about?
"For obvious reasons the idea of an old fashioned cross-border dust up between two neighboring nations seems right now almost quaint and perhaps the kind of thing likely to prompt replies in the circumstances along the lines of at this point who cares or not now leads where a bit busy nevertheless despite the best efforts of covert nineteen the world will keep turning and its constituent countries will continue to but against each other from time to time in East Africa in recent days. Somalia and Kenya have gone very close to going to war with each other and may get close. Astill the battlefield is jubilant. One of Somalia's five semi autonomous states. It lies just across Somalia's border with Kenya. Kenya regards drew ballooned as a vital buffet. Between it and Al Shabaab the fanatical Islamist militia which wreaks most of its havoc in Somalia but has also been responsible for large scale outrages in Kenya including the two thousand and thirteen attack on the West Gate Shopping Mall in Nairobi and the two thousand and fifteen attack on a university campus in Garissa accordingly Kenya has cultivated friendly relations with Jubal lands regional government and with jubilant president. Ahmed Mohamed Islam known colloquially as adobe Kenya has trained Madonna obeys militia and has troops of its own stationed injury bowland as part of the multinational African Union mission in Somalia and is also believed to have many more still camped under Kenya's own flag. This is a continuation of sorts of the invasion of Somalia Kenya undertook in two thousand and eleven in order to chase al-shabaab further north. Can US troops injury ballooned are not seeing as style occupiers? However indeed President Mugabe's regional government seems to get on better with Nairobi than it does with Mogadishu. The most recent unpleasantness appears to have begun with fighting between drew balloons own forces and Somali government troops the jubilation soldiers retreated over the border into Kenya and the Somali troops followed them. At which point. Can you took an interest? The fighting appears to have centred on the town of Mandera a town wedged between the Kenya. Somali border and the Delaware River which delineates Kenya's border with Ethiopia attorney casualties on both sides left people. Each data to save bullets. Were one succumb today. A diplomatic exchanges between Kenya and Somalia. Since have been terse verging on abrupt. Kenya has jumped about an unwarranted attack on its sovereign territory by foreign soldiers and so forth. Somalia has retorted to the effect that this is a bit rich coming from a country with thousands of its soldiers parked more or less permanently on the other side of its border. Kenya's desire to put physical distance between itself. And the PESTILENTIAL MARAUDERS OF AL. Shabaab is reasonable enough but it may not be the only or even the main reason why relations between Arab and Mogadishu have deteriorated as far as they have excitingly for fans of obscure maritime territorial disputes and. Come on who isn't the two countries are also at odds of a sea border. Exactly is the area in contention the border of the two countries when it comes to the seats and the only way to explain where the disputed portion of Indian Ocean is without incurring angry correspondence from either Kenya or Somalia. Although to risk inviting saving emails from both is to say that it's either off Somalia's southern coast all of Kenya's Northern Coast. It will come as little surprise to listeners that the stretch of Ocean in question abounds with oil and gas deposits. Nineteen outbreak may focus Kenyan and Somali attention elsewhere and or it may offer a party to this argument what it perceives as cover for decisive action. There has been some suggestion. That Kenya has consented actually annexing portions of southern Somalia both to deter Al Shabaab and to further its claims on the ocean of what is presently the two countries shed coast or there may be the option of mediation by Ethiopian. Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Laureate Abby who has facilitated talks between Kenya and Somalia before I also accept this award on behalf of Africans and citizens of the world for whom the Rim of peace has often turned into a nightmare of war.

Why Do Cars Have Alarms If We Ignore Them?
"Mark lives in Chicago and loved his nineteen ninety nine. Honda Civic hatchback. Thieves loved it too apparently late nineties. Civic is worth far more than its blue book value in parts alone. Multiple people have pulled up next to him at stop lights and offered to buy a hatchback on the spot. Maybe should've taken them up on the offer. The first time his civic was stolen the cops quickly recovered it a few blocks away. The second time mark wasn't so lucky. He went out to search for the car himself and founded about a mile from his apartment under an overpass stripped of its engine and missing the entire front paneling. Now mark takes the train mark. Civic didn't have a car alarm because like most of us he assumed that alarm where waste of money if you live in a big city falsely triggered car alarms ours communist pigeons and just as annoying blaring car alarm in. Chicago barely raises an eyebrow. There's even a name for it alarm fatigue but does our collective disdain for car. Alarms mean that they aren't effective. We spoke with Christmas. Goey security consultant of thirty three years and host of the podcast crime school. He admits that we all have alarm fatigue to some degree but thinks that alarms still have their place. He said car thieves will tell you. They don't like the noise. They don't like the attention that it draws but it depends on the quality of the car thief. If it's just an amateur car thief the alarm goes off. They're gone to that extent. They work professional car thieves on the other hand. Don't even worry about alarms. Mcgowan says the pros can either disable the alarm quickly or use a number of tactics including dummies keys and tow trucks to circumvent the alarm system altogether. According to Interpol the international law enforcement organization car-thefts worldwide can be divided into two distinct categories widely available older cars. That's quantity and higher end and luxury cars. That's quality marks ninety nine civic fits squarely in the quantity category the type of car. That's irresistible to young street level car. Thieves parts for older widely available. Cars are in high demand plus most cars built before the year. Two thousand can still be hot wired. Mcgaughey said the old cars are a piece of cake. Modern cars all the keys have a chip built into them. That chip has to be married up to the ignition. You can't go in there and break off the steering wheel column like you would in the old days. The CAR WON'T START IF LOW LEVEL CAR. Thieves are more likely to be spooked by car alarms. Then it's worth figuring out if your car is attractive to low level car thieves. I check if your car is one of the ten most stolen in America. That's a sure. Sign your quantity category according to low Jacks Two thousand sixteen vehicle theft recovery report. The most stolen makes models are behind a civic and accord Toyota Camry and Corolla the Chevy Tahoe and Silverado the Nissan Ultima Cadillac Escalade Ford F to fifty and the ACURA INTEGRA. Again older model years are the easiest to swipe and have the highest demand for parts. Mugabe's rule of thumb is quote. Look at the most popular cars today. They'll be the most stolen cars in the country ten years from now another hugely important factor is where you live according to statistics from the FBI and the National Insurance Crime Bureau. Big cities routinely have the highest total number of car thefts. But that's because there are lots of cars in big cities a more useful. Statistic is car thefts per capita in that category. California is king. California is home to eight of the ten metropolitan areas with the most cars stolen per person in Twenty fifteen Los Angeles held the title for the most car stolen nationwide fifty two thousand five hundred fifty nine but these smaller central valley cities of Modesto Bakersfield and Salinas had far greater rates per capita. Another perhaps expected capital of car. Theft is Albuquerque New Mexico number two in the country for stolen cars per resident. There might be a simple explanation for this geographical clustering of theft rates. According to a twenty twelve reports from the Department of Justice. One third of all cars stolen in the US were stolen from four states. California Arizona New Mexico and Texas. That's because there's a lucrative trade in stolen cars and parts directly into Mexico. Although the smuggling rings are operated by large criminal organizations the report concluded that the cars themselves are mostly stolen by juveniles. So if you drive a popular car that's more than decade old and you live within a few hours drive of the border. It's probably worth investing in a highly visible alarm system. The flashy decals alone might be enough to deter thief scanning the aisles in the mall parking lot but if a car alarm does go off near you you shouldn't go investigate unless you're Blah enforcement or security personnel. It's their job to investigate. Alarms not bystanders.

Louisa Thomas on Writing About Tennis
"I'm delighted to be joined here by a longtime listener first-time guests overdue guests. Really I think Lewis Thomas. I'm so excited to be here. I am a very long time listener. And Longtime Meyer so bucket lists for me for us. We're very excited. Why would we see? Fairmount is third like I remember. You said to me couple years ago like why almost like why am I not on and I had no answer your only people. I didn't think whatever like stooped our level. Pretty much. But now that you are here. I am delighted that you here and we're GONNA do a pretty male baggy centric type show with you here. We got a bunch listener questions on twitter on e Mail on our patron on. And we'll go through these. I JUST WANNA start against with how you got into tennis. Bitten what your tenants sort of writing. Arc has been leading all the way up to we can skip speed ahead to this version of the most recent story did which I think was on Kim. Clijsters must recent tennis centered leader for the New Yorker Short version of your of how you got here. A short version is that I was a pretty mediocre high school tennis player but absolutely loved it and stop playing pretty much when I got to college and a little bit after and then picked up a racquet again. A few years after college started playing With a friend of mine and I just loved it and it was like the greatest procrastination thing ever. I had actually had a book coming out and I was like filled with anxiety. And so I dealt with this by playing tennis for like it took like four hours. I don't like several times because we would I would go to Brooklyn. You know like an hour span telling you basically I was avoiding work and everything else and out of that. are as us to rate For the Paris Review blog about. Us Open that year. And I had so much fun doing it and it was actually a really kind of a revelation for me. I really felt in some ways that I found kind of voice that I hadn't really been able to. Yes it was it was. It was both new and felt so much like me and there was something about tennis about sports in particular. I'm sorry something about sports in general but tennis in particular that really kind of sports sports so tennis is really kind of my like my origin. Story I'd I'd worked at the sports section actually in high school but that was a both a long time before and I wasn't a writer in the same way so this was really kind of and it felt experimental felt fresh felt new felt it was none of those things really but I felt like I was doing something that no one else is doing and that this was like me. You know that this was something that I I sort of was bringing into the world and It was really exciting and if it was in the sense that Alaska was my voice after that I did a little bit more for them and then this great land the sports website owned by ESPN started by. Bill Simmons started up right before Wimbledon. Actually and they asked me to do. A couple of stories not became kind of became contributor. Really just writing about tennis. I and then I started Raymond other sports and then I started working for them fulltime and became an editor there and then by the end of doing all sports not all sports but many sports tennis was still kind of my Mitra. Love unless you're gonna Cap Cross country skiing by to write that your first term it was was. Us openwork clijsters one. That's as good as well ahead into the future. So since then. Yeah you're right. The New Yorker now seeing Kim Clijsters come back. What did you think I think permits? Everyone who I've talked to WHO watch. It was super impressed by her ball striking. Which is like in even though she lost the match and was almost off it badly. I mean she was down six to four or three or four zero. In the second set fought back have a tie-break so in some ways you could be like that close but she's playing Mugabe's who just made Australian Open final had really nothing to lose in this match and played really well and just had a lot of a lot of things may people go. Whoa Mabel we'll realize why she was a special player for so long. I think I mean I actually even from the start of the match is one of those matches where the scoreline wasn't necessarily reflective of what was going on in the individual games sort of competitive and a lot of games that she was losing she obviously has big weakness. Game. She's not as in shape as she probably wants to beach. Her Serb was kind of a disaster at times by Yeah her boss. Striking was just thrilling. I mean it was so pure it was so I mean I like completely fell in love with her and fell in love with the sport. All over again it actually I mean. Even her announcement had summoned a lot of these. Kinda had made me think about my own kind of start in tennis writing sports writing in general and it became even more intense while I was watching her and I was just. I was just happy in a way that was really uncomplicated. And which was really interesting too because I actually had a lot of complicated feelings about her coming back and it was just so it was like such a pleasure to watch her and just to see someone kind of seize the moment and some sort of Lia really kind of. Yeah uncomplicated right. What are your complicated feelings about her back? Then I generally think that coming back when he said this. Mike feelings aren't really about her coming back. I mean she should do whatever she wants to do in. This is clearly what she wants to be doing. And that's like got on her. You know my complicated feelings are only insofar as like you know. I'm also trying to negotiate my own kind of ambition versus raising a small child. How and the expectations are being placed upon me you know from various sides and trying to figure out what what is it that. I really want to be doing and how do I WANNA be privatizing my life and and in some ways one of the things I find really kind of inspiring about her is that she's actually. Her story is more complicated than a normal kind of like. It's always an Serena Williams story where she knew she was gonna WanNa come back and it was just about making that work in a way that worked for her. I mean she. She left the game she came back. She left the game again. She came back. And I find the idea that you could have. You could sort of take a long view of your career even in a career that is necessarily short like sports that you can sort of view it as a kind of multidimensional thing where you can have different ambitions at different times and have different ways of judging success and have different kind of approaches to be to be really inspiring. Also hard you know. I mean because that's not how we normally talk about successor. How's how's IT philosopher clijsters? I think we'll have one question about her but this my last question her. How's it influenced you being a relatively new mom. In this sort of era women's tennis where motherhood has been a big sugar running storyline. From as Aranka to Serena to clijsters now like what is how. How does that? Because you've written about all three of those women I'm guessing sent in this time. What is that been like? Having your own personal life and of it informs how you see these stories and see the narratives rally stories for better or worse by life always informs. Whatever I'm writing about but I'm also not a person who's injecting my life story into I mean. I did a little bit in the classrooms piece. But I don't usually do that and I have a little bit ready. Mutt Serena but usually I try and step back from that. But certainly there's always like an undercurrent a kind of is to think of it as a secret story. There's something sort of like some You know wellspring of feeling or some motivation that I have to bring into a story. Otherwise it's just a it's not mine. You know that thing. I was talking about my voice like I need to be tapping into whatever that is to take that voice And for some of these stories about mothers obviously it is a little bit closer to what I've been going through but it's also again more complicated because I think we have a tendency to generalize a lot when especially we're talking about something like motherhood would it's such a particularly unique experience. I mean at least to prove my point house at least in my experience has been particularly in unique but of course it's one of these things that is on the one hand like is obviously not universal. But it's something Millions and millions of billions of people go through like trying to figure out how to balance these different things and that's just how to balance them. But how you know embrace them in different ways but at the same time like what Serena wants is different than what clijsters wants. And that's different than what as wrinkle on. And how do you do sort of justice to those stories without kind of flattening them or distorting them or you know assuming one thing for one and a different thing for another and I think can be really challenging. But that's also part of the important thing about being a writer in some ways as sort of realizing the variety of human experience for sure. Very nice to
A Complete List of Trump’s Pardons and Commutations
"Today. Donald Trump continued his full on assault. On the rule of law pardoning and commuting the sentences of several high profile criminals he notably included former Illinois governor. Rod Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat vacated because he was elected president in exchange for campaign contributions. Begovic had served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence. You may also remember the governor from the apprentice where he messed up the Harry Potter Challenge and got fired Donald Trump. We'll technically by the apprentice producers today the President Communities Sentence Response Members of the Illinois House Republican delegation released a saying quote. We're disappointed by the president's commutation of Robert Mugabe of federal sentence. Begovic is the face of public corruption in Illinois. And not once has he shown any remorse for his clear undocumented. Record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by the voters. Nbc News Correspondent. Tom Winter reminds us are eating. A jury found him guilty of trying to extort the CEO of Children's Memorial Hospital for a donation in exchange for increasing the payments to doctors. Who took care of Specialty Care Kids? Oh but Donald Trump was not done there he also pardoned former New York police department. Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients. A significant president prison term is required in order to deter others others receive clemency from trump today glued former San Francisco Forty niners owner Edward debartolo junior. Who pleaded guilty in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight two concealing an extortion attempt involving the governor of Louisiana David Savvy and the former Bush administration official who was sentenced to a year in prison for lying about his association with Jack? Abramov June grown the owner of a Mental Health Care Company. Who was serving a thirty five year prison sentence for running? A two hundred. Five million dollar Medicare fraud scheme to be clear. This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.
What Makes Champagne Champagne?
"Champagne is a celebratory drink. Effervescent drink toast whip but sparkling wine was once the scourge of winemakers the famous. I don't Perignon was actually hired by a French. Winemaker to prevent wine from bubbling. So how did we get here. And what makes Champagne Champagne. Champagne is a type of sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region of France under particular circumstances. But okay hold up. What's a sparkling wine. When does it contain glitter. No it's a wine. That's carbonated meaning. It contains dissolved carbon dioxide gas which bubbles out of the liquid. Unless it's kept under pressure. Her that's why you might burp when you drink. Bubbly or beer or soda. Your stomach is pressurized. Not Pressurized enough to keep the carbon dioxide dissolved so it escapes as the gas other sparkling wines. Shouldn't technically be called Champagne and in some countries legally they cannot be called champagne though. That's really for labeling. Being in marketing folks not for dinner conversations and the Champagne region takes this seriously because it's their livelihood so what makes a real champagne a lot a lot of things. Actually it's all out in the Appalachian Region Control Regulations. And I apologize for my French. It's a set of rules created by the French French National Institute of Origin in quality which is a regulatory group in France. Meant to control the quality and branding of agricultural products like cheeses and wines for champagne to be labeled champagne. It must be produced from the growing of grapes to the processing of the wine in Champagne region and from one or a blend end of three main grape varieties chardonnay pinot noir and Pinot Mugabe. There are all kinds of rules about how you handle the grapes. How they can be planted in pruned? How much fruit can be produced her. Hector how much juice can be obtained from the fruit by weight and how it can be fermented and stored. The process of making. The wine is called the been told whole champenoise or traditional or classic. I you produce bottles of still wine. That have undergone a primary from tation that means that you take grape juice called must in the industry and add sugar and yeast to it. East of course is a microscopic organisms that among other things eats glucose and excretes carbon dioxide. And ethanol all the carbon dioxide is released from the liquid is a gas and ethanol is the alcohol in the finished wine when Ph level hits a certain point on the acid end of the scale scale. You strain out the yeast and bottle wine. So how'd you get the bubbles that's done by creating a secondary fermentation inside each bottle by adding an in a bit more yeast and sugar whereas the carbon dioxide was a byproduct primary fermentation. It's the whole point of the secondary fermentation to keep in the bottles. You seal them tightly with crown caps. The kind that beer is sealed with when the winemaker thinks it's good sparkling after a couple of months at least the caps are removed and spent yeast called. The lease is taken out in a process called riddling. Each bottle is then topped off with a bit more still wine and usually a bit more sugar to taste this. This edition is called the dosage then hefty corks are inserted and backed up by a wire cage cap hold in the now highly pressurized contents champions run about about five to seven atmospheres inside the Bottle Aka five to seven times the pressure that we experience just hanging out around sea level so being inside the bottle would be like diving fifty eighty to seventy meters underwater about one hundred sixty two two hundred and thirty feet which is deep. It's also about the same pressure as as a semi truck tire. The final product must just then be aged for at least fifteen months for a typical blended champagne or at least three years for a single vintage champagne and must have a minimum alcohol content but the very first sparkling wines probably didn't happen in the Champagne region and we're very probably accidents of unintentional secondary fermentation the first historical Oracle record a sparkling wines. Being made on purpose was in sixteen sixty two when an English scientist named Christopher Merit present a paper to the Royal Society about how Sun Wind Humans Simmons the time we're adding sugar molasses finished wine barrels to create a second fermentation and thus bubbles ciders. Were very popular in England at the time. And that's how they we're made with this wind curiosity before then sparkling wine was an accident and a dangerous accident. Legend and or history has it that the monk Dom Perignon was assigned to stop this live in the job the devils wine the temperatures in the champagne region get cold enough early enough that seller Lord. Bottled wine would stop fermenting in winter before the yeast was done. Doing its thing. And then when the weather warmed up in the spring the bottles would undergo a second fermentation Asian dramatically raising the pressure inside the bottles and making them go fizzy and then making them explode and this was actually a weird and huge and scary problem. It was common to lose four to ten percent of a seller due to bursting and bad warm friends could lead to thirty to forty percent of your bottles breaking or entire tire sellers could be lost. A single bottle going off could start a chain reaction around the seller. Workers had to wear heavy iron masks padding for protection when they'd go down a couple of technological innovations sorted this problem out glass quality and let's glass quality. The British worked out how to make glass was super hot whole fueled furnaces by sixteen twenty-three traditionally charcoal had been these safer and cooler fuel of choice but it was commonly produced from oak trees trees at the time and King James the First Navy needed oak for its ships the higher temperatures and cosmetic but useful additions of iron and manganese to the glass made the bottles. Charles much stronger. This led to that boost in the popularity of sparkling ciders and merits observance of on purpose sparkling wines by sixteen sixty to the wire cap that hooks under the bottles lipid secures. The Cork wouldn't come along until eighteen. Forty four until then. corks were held in with tied string to varying effect the invention of the riddling process in the early eighteen hundreds by the cliquot champagne house also made sparkling wines quicker easier and thus less expensive to produce as for why we toast with it. That's a little trickier but it has to do with war. Because of the Champagne region location it seen a lot of battles in. Its time the tradition of French kings being coordinated in the Champagne region started after a battle there in the fifth century. C E end. The tradition of celebrating champagnes wines grew from there alongside the science audience. That made the drink

The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola
"Safai here with none other than NPR east. Africa correspondent eight Peralta to. Hey there ater. Hey mattie thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled but I want to open with a quick question who discovered Ebola and Google. It first of all. How dare you asked me a a question? I should definitely know the answer to and don't and yeah I already. Google bet came up was a Belgian. Microbiologist I but I think you're about to tell me there's more to the story there absolutely there always is right so I mean you cheated. Yeah what you probably saw is a bunch of White Westerners like Dr John Jack. Mugambi does not. Yeah he was not one of the people that came up yes so he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo. But back in nineteen seventy six. We we emberg he was the first doctor to collect any bola sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote. A lot of history has been written without your name. Yes but you on this Yes it is it not correct did not quite so today on the show correcting the record on a bola the story of Dr John Jock Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing its future to some in the medical community. It's a controversial move. Okay ater so we're talking talking about a Congolese Dr Jacques in his role in discovering Abullah. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa south he said we should start in nineteen seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD in microbiology at the Institute in Belgium and and he could have stayed in Europe but he decided to come back to Congo. But when I arrive here The condition of work were not I. I had no lab. I have no mice for experimentation so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah it's tough to do lab work without a lab you now. He said without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen nineteen seventy six we sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak It's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola. But no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever and he goes to this local hospital but he says he finds it completely empty was nobody there. Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and and people had died there but in the morning when they heard was sent from capitol. They thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital and we started seeing patients. So so what's he seeing. When the patients come in he was seeing people who were very weak with fever they had headaches? I started it to him to make the physical time but at that time. have no gloves you know gloves. And of course he had to draw blood but when I removed they're the city which Blood continued to spread out. It was the first time from two CDs momentum and also my fingers so with a bow. Wow Yeah so he says he he would wash his hands a lot but really really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on and he was able to not get it and at this point we MP. He was startled but then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village also got sick with a fever all the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point I was like. Oh it's probably not those things. Thanks yeah I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different. So he convinced one none to go back to Kinshasa with him so what happens next. She died at a hospital a couple of days later but he took blood samples and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end. That was Peter. Piot who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium. Aw The guy who turned up from Google Search. Yeah that's right. And so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit the CDC in the US US gets involved and they realize this is a new virus that caused hemorragic

Zimbabwe gives public sector protest the go-ahead
"Zimbabwe's protests have been spawned by years of deep-rooted economic mismanagement by the government. President Emmerson Mnangagwa took office in two thousand seventeen big promises to revive the economy. You after longtime authoritarian leader Robert Mugabe was ousted in a military coup country has to be it's different and our relations will be normalized. Peppy visit change in great shape working. It is good young yet now. Zimbabwe has the world's second highest inflation rate. Prices marked on a supermarket shelf can change by the time. The customer reaches the checkout. The crisis has brought back painful memories of two thousand eight when inflation reached five hundred billion percent wiping out people savings causing Mr Mugabe's government to abandon its currency empty shelves in the shops speak of a nation on its knees in today Zimbabwe. The situation is becoming more desperate by the day. It's already sparked plenty of rest. In January protests erupted after fuel prices more than doubled overnight. The security forces responded violently killing seventeen people. The question is whether Mr Mnangagwa's government comment will tolerate dissent at today's March. People are expecting thousands of people to go out onto the streets in protest in Zimbabwe. Jonathan Rosenthal is our Africa editor. There are some real concern for today's protests mater and violent in particular their worries about the security forces clamping down quite hard. The reason that people are concerned is that Zimbabwe's Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa has set loose. The police in the army on protesters in the past in January there were attempts to protest and people beaten again in August those very small protests that took place in it'd been banned security forces said they would arrest people who came out and small numbers did turn out and of course it's little more than a year since the election in August of last year. That also turned violent. twit the police and army shot demonstrators. Who is saying the election had been rigged and so the protests this time around? Who are the protesters in and what what did they want? The protests at the moment of very much driven by the economy. It's much more about people. Struggling to get by rather than an overtly political protests and the reason is that symbolic he's been in slow motion economic crisis for the past few years way. Its currency has been falling. It's used to have a currency was pegged to the dollar. The government is run. Run out of dollars. So it's been essentially printing it so in many it's been producing things called on notes. It's been producing a kind of an electronic money. All of these have been steadily losing value and of course Oh civil servants. Who are the biggest group of unionized employees? I have seen their pay rapidly falling buzz devaluation of the currency rampant inflation. And so does the government even have have the means to address those concerns in the short term. There is very little the government can do is broke. It is facing recession. The finance ministers expecting growth contract by about six to the seven percent this year. There is very little riddle renewed. The government's got to meet these demands to think of the notion of inflation and Zimbabwe's to think back a decade ago. When and you know you could get yourself a five hundred trillion Zimbabwean dollar note? Is there a link between what we're seeing now in the country and what we saw. Then that's absolutely right. Zimbabweans have memory memory of the rampant hyperinflation that the head in two thousand nine hundred absolutely devastated. The economy and many people are now looking at the inflation rate which the government has stopped reporting. So it's now take communists to try to guess and their estimates of around three hundred eighty four hundred percent and of course that not only brings back memories for some bog wins who are desperately trying into shot with what many they still have. We're also seeing disturbing. Echoes in the way in which the government's is responding to this so if one goes back to two thousand eight the finance minister at the time came out and said the normal laws of economics did not apply to Zimbabwe. And therefore he could printers matrimony as you want to do and that just fueled the hyperinflation and we're seeing again at the central bank in Zimbabwe as saying what it sees is a shortage of currency and it is therefore introducing yet another new currency which was going back to printing the old Zimbabwe Dolla. Paula and simply printing is not the way in which deals with inflation so the economic situation that Zimbabwe faces now is entirely down then to government economic mismanagement management or it is absolutely the result of economic mismanagement that goes back decades if one looks at the now late former President Robert Mugabe who ruled from independence in one thousand nine hundred ensler asked in two thousand seventeen Mugabe. Firstly overspent running huge deficits. He then decided the bigger idea to grab the most productive assets in the country. Entry the farms the commercial farms had mattis cronies who then mismanaged them. And we've seen ongoing economic mismanagement where the government is simply be unable to run a balanced budget control it spending and Risher investors that if they start putting many into irrigation on farms or mines or whatever it is that they want to invest in that these assets won't just get grabbed the of course the government is not taking the blame for it saying there is a drought and indeed. The rains have been bad. It is also being particularly genius when it blamed sanctions Western countries the US EU have imposed very targeted sanctions that are really targeted against the person and our punishment for being involved in gross human rights violations whereas the broad-ranging ranges and Baldwin Economic Commerce is a lot of continue unabated so if we assume that the normal laws of economics do apply in Zimbabwe. What should the government be doing instead? How could it pull itself out of this mess? The first thing to do is to simply get out of this crazy. Business of producing new currencies many people in Zimbabwe is somebody saying let's go back to the US taller. The government cannot be trusted to prince own money that would lead to quite as severe short term economic shock probably but it is something that a previous opposition government of national unity dead and stabilize the economy after the previous battle. Hyperinflation the second thing it needs to do is to come clean on. Its major export earnings Zimbabwe. Aubrey produces a lot of minerals in particular diamonds but there is very little transparency as to whether revenue from those governments control done minds ago. Many people suspect that it is disappearing disappearing into the pockets of senior people in the government in the military. Do you think that will that tells kind of wider tail. I mean what's your view on the outlook for the country. Now that it's shot of Mr Mr Mugabe and now under Mr Mnangagwa's aside from the current economic turmoil do you think the prospects are good but we has a real opportunity and that opportunity was offered search lost last year in July when it had selections and the West essentially lines up said. We're racist lending we're ready to support debt-relief and to get this economy back on its feet but in return. What we expect is a clean election and no human rights violations? And that didn't happen. There is an opportunity now. Given how deep the crisis says for governments to put his hands up essentially say okay. We're willing to take the steel into start. Enacting some real reforms in the process. Today we're really going to be seeing people coming asking for change a chance at hope and we will see today whether the government listens to that or whether it reverts to its old tactic of simply sending in the security perceive a schism piecing processes with the streets.
Zimbabwe Continues Its Economic Downward Spiral

The family of Zimbabwe's former leader Robert Mugabe burried him this weekend he was in power there for almost forty years and after he died people hoped for a new start but life subway hasn't gotten any better last last week city officials cutoff tap water in the capital city. Harare Andrew Meldrum is Africa editor for the Associated Press Sixteen years ago. He was expelled from Zimbabwe Walkway recently. He went back to look around at the country that he'd covered for decades. Meldrum told me the Water Shutoff in Harari is the result of both drought end economic economic crisis. There's no water going through the pipes. People were lining up to pump water from wells to wash their clothes in brackish streams or ponds so were seeing a city and a country that is really suffering from huge problems from an economic downturn as as I say you know no electricity in the capital for as much as nineteen hours a day no water. This is is something that was just unthinkable people. When I was living there I would imagine having spent so many years in Zimbabwe. You have lots of friends there. What are the differences in their lives since you've been. La well those of my friends who are still in Zimbabwe. They have experienced a roller coaster. Since I was expelled they they have experienced hyperinflation of more than a billion percent inflation Yaha and also they experienced something surprises in political situation they saw Robert Mugabe fall from power and there was a tremendous amount of optimism and excitement to think that that things were going to get better and now two years later at the death of Robert Mugabe. They're saying will actually things aren't better at all and the government under Emerson Mnangagwa's has has not achieved economic growth or an improvement in things so they're they're disappointed so the the question is why not I mean I remember the optimism awesome. People saying the country will be more free. The country will develop economically. It's Mugabe essentially. Many people said that's been holding us back and then you're saying but in two years nothing's happened why not well. Robert Mugabe left but the same party ZANU. PF and the same military military are running the show and they are not making the kind of substantial fundamental changes in the way the country is run that will will improve things for the average. Bob weigh-in one thing that was interesting that I'd like to highlight was a doctor who was calling for a strike to get higher wages. He was abducted he was tortured and he has now been released because there was an outcry amongst the medical community and throughout Zimbabwean of course it's great that he has been released but it it was one of a series of abductions of government critics in in recent months so it shows that there is a level of political repression still in Zimbabwe. What do you think happens next in in symbolic way. Is there some political leader political party waiting in the wings that has the potential to turn things around I don't see that political leader waiting waiting in the wings and it might be further in the wings than I can see at this point you know things are going to come together so that the country returns to the kind of prosperity that I saw it but I think it's going to take quite some time Andrew Meldrum. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you Noel Andrew Meldrum the A._P.'s Africa editor joined us on Skype from Johannesburg.

I see. the nice thing. the wide angle. well. anything I should note Scott is that this is a huge stadium in the capital city and it is half empty. what about people outside the stadium I understand you spoke with them too I did and you know the feeling outside is very different from the feeling here you know here he was remembered as a liberator as a. in Africa and you know. became a tight to his own people and right now Zimbabwe is hurting it's got the second worst inflation rate after minutes well and you know what woman I spoke to yesterday she was body she was in tears and she said her heart. I liberated from white minority rule and she was able to go to school to live in areas that were formerly all white but then she pointed to her legs they were stolen she didn't know why and she would get medical attention and she pointed toward the garbage off and then said that's because of him she was conflicted she was crying because her heart but also she resented. and and Nader. I understand British McGahee's not going to be put in the ground today there's been some confusion about when he'll be buried where he'll be buried Phyllis in on that if you could please. yeah I mean it's been a huge drama he was supposed to be buried at heroes acre which is a place where all of us involved with war heroes are very. family says that they were part because of the clean and they said that they didn't want. defensively they relented and they said yes will be buried there yesterday the apparently changed her mind and announced that the burial that was supposed to happen tomorrow has been canceled and that Robert Mugabe it will be very some point maybe in the next month maybe at heroes acre. and had a broader speaking with us from the national sports stadium half full he reports in or are a for these final services for Robert Mugabe ator thank you so much for being
Zimbabwe's Mugabe to be honored at state funeral
"But later today a state funeral will be held for Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe he was ninety five he died last week in a private clinic in Singapore today state occasion in Zimbabwe follows days of rowing over exactly where he will be buried let's get more details from our correspondent Andrew Harding who joins us live from Harari wait preparations are underway for this state occasion enter. that's
Robert Mugabe will have private burial at national Heroes' Acre
"Last week's death of former former Zimbabwean tyrant Robert Mugabe at the age of ninety five presented his country with a problem if from the worst problem with which Mugabe presented Zimbabwe during he's later decades of deranged misrule. How does one commemorate the passing of a figure who was both hero and villain in Mugabe's case indeed both with the founder and destroyer of his nation after an amount of agonizing it has now been decided that Mugabe will be interred in the National Heroes Acre in Harare Laura a public memorial ceremony will be held on Sunday one joined in the studio with more on this bond monocle twenty regular Georgina Godwin Georgina as our listeners are probably aware you are yourself Zimbabwean and I remember we spoke at the time of Mugabe's removal by coup data at how we had that atwells that he was no longer enough and what an I guess a big mental adjustment that was for generations of Zimbabweans. How are we is it adjusting to the fact that he's no longer here at all. You know I think people feel slightly cheated in a way that he went out really with a bit of a whimper not a bang that we and indeed he probably expected and he's no longer there but I gather that in his last few months. He wasn't all there mentally anyway. If you look at the photograph few months well I I mean from when he started wearing you know dribbles and chuck suits but and obviously as you point out his his last years were were he was in the grip of definitely something probably dementia but for him to be dead is something that's quite odd because what you're seeing in Zimbabwe's as you alluded to is people wanting still to hate him but also really wanting to acknowledge the role that he played in in in the formations the country and say so there's quite a lot of them big dichotomy between how people feel because us as I think we discussed at the time if Mugabe is say had sort of cheerfully stepped down from office circa the late eighties and sort of idled into a retirement of giving elections and writing books he would be regarded as one of the twentieth century's heroic figures wouldn't they completely and utterly and he would have got a hero's funeral. Oh hang on the funeral which does prompt the question though that who who turns up for Mugabe's Hero's funeral thousands of people have been attending the lying in state. At referrers stadium in Harari who still is Mugabe's constituency well at the formal proceedings. You'll have a lot of heads of state state. I think Cyril Ramaphosa is coming from South Africa and various other people from from around the continent impacts further afield but in terms of ordinary people what generally happens in in in situations like this is that people have Boston and their promised food and those are the two things that people have that they don't have any fuel in Zimbabwe so they wouldn't be able to get there by themselves. They don't have the money money for bus fare and they're desperate to eat so if you promise people all of that they will turn up much. I mean I'm sympathetic to an extent extent or to this extent with the current Zimbabwean government. You have to acknowledge his passing some how you have to do something if not not what is being done what other suggestions have people made there was an argument of course to whether he should be buried in National Heroes Acre. But where else would you put him well. He is family. It appeared wanted him buried in his home area of Qatar which is where he comes from and I think would have been one way around it but it appears that the government was really pushing to have him in heroes. Acre which apparently he had not wanted himself. There was another really interesting piece of not not legislation but something else he put in his will. I think which was that his wife Grace Mugabe was to stay with the casket at all times until he was buried therefore what he's doing doing that is guaranteeing her starring role in his final Hurrah. Do you get the sense that the current government and we should remind ourselves that the current President Emmerson Mnangagwa was for many years Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe's kind of conciliatory if you will are they trying to reanimate the myth of Mugabe the liberator to to their own ends. I think that that would certainly serve a purpose that the end but I mean at the same time time. Mugabe's very useful is somebody that you can up lay all the blame on and say look it wasn't us it was the previous guy where clean we're going forward and of course that's what the what Managua A and his cronies would like us to think that this is a completely new dispensation. It really isn't make no mistake.

He's contribution to the history of our nation and continent will never be forgotten. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

And personally, I hope that the latter is is is the part that people would. How much is the shadow of Robert Mugabe still hanging over the country. We heard reports today that an arrest warrant has been issued a full grace Mugabe the wife of Robert Mugabe for assaulting a woman with an electrical extension cool to in a hotel room a despite the crime that government did allow her to leave the country, but one expect with stories like that still generating press the shadow was still hanging quite lodge over Zimbabwe. I mean, the thing about grace Mugabe is that she's a great kind of. She's a great figureheads to hate to laugh at kind of Imelda Marcos. If you light with kind of hugely excessive behavior, and she did beat up this model Gabriella angles in South Africa, insofar as Mugabe shadow himself of couse, I think you can't separate him from the party in from the military, and all of those things that some bubbas still is in terms of this particular incident, well chicken, just grace can just stay away from South Africa. And then nothing will happen. I think one of the interesting things about what's driving. This arrest warrant is a group. Old Africa, former South African lobby group. Sadly, they are very much a associated with protecting minority rights, which sounds great. But actually what you really looking at is African rights. So you're talking about a very small white minority much reviled at this time. So I think in terms of of a credible lobby group. There is some issues surrounding that. And not maybe the way that she's able to to duck this Georgina Godwin. Thank you for coming in on the briefing today..
