The Most Dangerous Fruit in America

"To start our watermelon adventure, we called one of the world's great watermelon. Harry Paris he has worked on watermelon science per years as part of Israel's agricultural research. Service. Well, I think the first thing that comes to the first two syllables water right? This is a true rich table. which has a lot of water and which actually probably the first use by people of this particular natural products. Was To quench thirst I've spent summers in Israel, and it is basically watermelon paradise but that's not actually were Harry I fell in love with a watermelon it all started when his dad grew watermelons in the backyard in their home in Brooklyn in the nineteen sixties then Harry gave watermelon farming himself fifteen years old and there was a new variety called Crimson sweets that came out and plans at a few seats in the garden and Lo and behold by the fall we got one nice big sweet high quality watermelon fruit. That we grew in the backyard in Brooklyn and from then on I was just hoped. Harry was well ahead of the local war hipster curve in Brooklyn but the watermelon is neither from Brooklyn nor from Israel, in fact, its origins are a little bit of a mystery. One of the big headlines was back in the mid nineteenth century when the British explorer David Livingstone went to the southern African deserts and low and behold. It was the year in which there was more rain than average and he found a large areas just covered with wild watermelons. He's wild watermelons were hard but does the name says have water say to pound them and so on and so forth but you could squeeze the water out of them David Livingston was searching for the source of the Nile. But apparently, he was also as a side hustle looking for other sources like the source of our sweet watermelons and people thought he'd founded the wild ancestor but Livingston was wrong about the source of the Nile and as it turns out now. We know he was wrong about those wild watermelons to now that scientists can examine the DNA of melons. They found that the Kalahari desert wild melon that Livingston came upon is not the ancestor of our sweet watermelon. But DNA is just one of the tools that scientists are using to try to figure out where and when the watermelon was domesticated, you can't just use one approach. You have to use an archaeology approach you have to use clients science you have to use. Linguistics you have to go into literature some of it'll some of an ancient. And even more than that. Of course, with the latest that we know genetics and genome can assist us first of all the plant Science Livingston was at least on the right continent because there are wild watermelons of various different species all over. Africa. So the wild relatives watermelon their fruits are smaller and rounder not elongate. They have often perfectly round it small fruits the outside looks like a watermelon like little, green and white. But inside they all have this extremely bitter and usually white. Whitish pulpits azan Renner is a professor of biology at the University of Munich and she's another one of the world's watermelon expert Suzanne's as you could boil these Super Beta watermelons for jam or you could use them medicinally as kind of a purge to clean out your insides. Basically, the wild watermelon wasn't a tasty thing to eat raw at all. So where the desert watermelon comes from, there are two things that have to happen to these bitter wild melons to turn them into the watermelons. We love today to specific genetic mutations. The first one is a mutation. That switches off the production of bitchy chemicals and so this mutation occurs in nature as bad for the plan because the plant of course has this bitterness to defend itself not eaten so that the fruits would not be yeah for the plan is better to lose the bitterness but for us, it's good and we can only imagine that native people every once in a while tried one of these melons maybe for what may be hoping for something to chew on and found some that wasn't bitter Suzanne's scientists know what that mutation is and how to find it in. A melon they just to look and the second mutation is the one that turned it red inside rather than white the red colors also well understood this is well studied and it's a completely different set of teens. This is and other scientists know exactly which two mutations they're looking for. Those mutations aren't common and wild melon. So when did they happen? When were watermelons domesticated Harry says the place to look for those clues is archaeology in ancient Egyptian tombs. Archaeologists have found paintings of whole watermelons on a platter there oblong and striped watermelons today not round like the. Wild bitter ones but did those ancient Egyptian watermelons taste like the ones we eat did they have the mutations for sweetness and maybe for the red color the painting can't really tell you that. But fortunately, some other watermelon evidence has showed up in a four thousand year old Egyptian tomb complex the seeds and leaves from the tomb ended up at the q Royal Botanic Gardens in England Suzanne wanted to find out if those remains held any clues about whether the watermelon had already been domesticated by them. So she wrote to mark Nesbitt who coincidentally starred in our tonic. And who runs the economic botany collection at Q. and she asked if she could borrow a watermelon leaf from the tomb, it was in a glass box encased in a box and he opd mark opened it, and he said it hadn't been opened since eighteen seventy one or whenever singles arrived there then and her colleagues analyzed demand the leaf and I they were thrilled the watermelon leaf DNA did in fact, have the mutations that would have made the fruit sweet and read but then when you see fourteen Dating for this material that we had received for Mark Nesbitt, it turned out it was much younger than we thought it turns out the watermelon material in the two had been left there by a later visitor carbon dating showed it was from the late eighteen hundreds huge bummer.

July Mailbag with Jason Moser

"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I

Right so super excited about this session collapse. We can start with your childhood. What was it like growing up in your husband? And where did you grow up? I grew up near Hamburg Germany Two years old when I immigrated to Canada. and. So, what was it like growing up? I grew up in a very small city of about forty thousand people between Hambleton over. A city that has no post. Post secondary education, though virtually everybody after great thirteen, the Germans middle different from the Canadian like after great for you begin to specialize the either day in the General School, the Middle School until grade, ten or you early on Tuesday academic route Nicole was called high school, which is basically great, five hundred, thirteen, leading towards post secondary education. So virtually all my friends including myself degrade thirteen. We went somewhere else because there was no other place to study and I studied. At the university, of Munich for a year while it's actually not really quite true I enrolled in. In our school of law at the University of Munich, I went to one lecture and I thought that everybody else was like. Advanced compared to me and I decided to drive truck for year instead of going to university so I did that. And then I decided to study business administration and I enrolled at the University of Hamburg. I went to a few lectures. Derek got few credits and just couldn't wait for my ticket to leave. Germany, I was Prior to that thirteen years old spent a Lotta Time in France on exchange program. That's. That was A. That was very. Informative for me that Germany's a place that's really know for tunnel vision, and that's just very dramatic. Way is just like you basically almost like you just have blinders around yourself dislike like a horse. Pulling a cart in a way and that's in a way. That's the dramatic way of seeing you'd think of the way geographic on Germany's a wedge between East, and West Germany. That's just like the mind. Develop Sideway, though when I was thirteen years old I got the opportunity to do a debate in an exchange program. The French student and that was kind of my first. And my mind that there was also. A different wages. And absolutely loved it, and I remember like being We as a family are my host family I would go out with a with a fisherman on the little fisher boat are hardly tours and I thought to myself at the two year old.

"Fuel thing with me to talk. What was a very busy day indeed? Yeah. Let's start the top and work our way down. Bein ending the season than normal riga ways. On unbelievable season of volume. With thirteen points and it was some time ago. We thought maybe we could have a chance. Then winning signal do not park by an wanted without Kim h goal at the end of the day. They have hundred goals hundred goals directly from seventy one seventy two season. I think was hundred. One and eleven dusky getting thirty four goal. They've had a fantastic season, not only winning two titles so kind of dominant, but also getting a young team out there they have. They have a new generation of young players. There are more to expect to come on so that don't terrifically. I just thinking that the violence wasn't Nolan season that we would have had to Champions League. Finish there would be my great great favorite to win that one as well, but now we have to see how this July month and a half of the August would have to do on their form. If I know the Germans well, they would probably be unbelievable prepared for that, too. Meanwhile! How much do we give Dortmund apart? And then there was nothing state for this game. Or how much do we say come on? You know it's still a match. You still got pride that yeah off nine. Come in and do what they did. It's embarrassing the goalkeeper Burke you said after the game that maybe we attitude of course relaxed winning mentality that they. At by him, that was embarrassing. Rich, the strike of health finance scoring four goals in that game. What a day for them! Hoffman I'm coming into European League on Directorship position in a group stays there, but embarrassing of Dolt within we talked about that game before before the game started, and this was the start of a new season, top got the confirmation that it would be the coach next year by by Director Sore yesterday, but still this is so embarrassing that he was stocked with. With we kind of bad thing going into a new season to the Phantom, they've had a quite okay season. They ought second best in Germany after the team that everybody knows as the best team in the world. Still they have a problem winning the big points on the two last home games is said to against losing to nil against mines, and then no fort mill against a health and I'm on. Thank God for that. We're not allowed eight one thousand people in that stadium. That's the be. The parliament of the streets going on in their. Care by Munich, best team in the world, maybe a conversation for another day. I by Munich right now. I'd say Liverpool it pretty good. Liverpool. TASTIC game and agree with you, but little is not in the Champions League so data answer can't be answered properly anyway, but but you're right livable look very well in the in the last game very early winning Wynonna premacy, but by an at the moment doing brilliantly on your show holiday crashed out Chelsea so I think that was a Bundesliga primarily competition, wasn't it?

"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated tennis podcast hope everyone is well healthy wearing a mask not at a Belgrade disco topless, which I suppose is where we ought to start Jamie I'm glad you're you're with me today. How's everything in your world? It is good I. AM also not in a Belgrade club dancing around in close quarters. Shouting. Indoors So, that's a win I. You know I had wanted to do A. Normal podcast. We're going to talk to Donald Dell longtime agent. He had some very interesting thoughts about how to merge the ATP and the WPA we were GonNA talk about. The plan for the US Open and tennis getting back in there some events this week. We were talking about the Patrick. marauded lose event, and the Charleston ended in of course everything blew up metaphorically and I. Guess You could say in a sense literally with news from from the Balkans this weekend which we probably timestamped us, we are speaking on. What is today Wednesday morning the right as cracked. So we are seventy two hours into this Kindly, call it a narrative I spoken a lot about this. I've written about this I will say before we can talk. Specifics I'm very surprised at the stem, and this is really world news. I mean I was getting calls. From Aljazeera the BBC and then I just Mary. Carillo is on MSNBC Today. Mean is really become much more than tennis story. For better worse I would argue worse, but this really has been. The kind of story had ripples beyond the the sport and beyond sports period I think a lot of people are. Sort of trying to figure out how we eat back to normal I think we're trying to see I think we're starting to see some real. Sort of disparities in countries, and even here in the United States with how this is not only being managed, and not only with the data says, but just in terms of philosophy, so I think this is the story of really found its way into into a much broader story, and this has become absolutely world news. I mean this is as big as a ten stories we've had since there's been a match and I guess what why don't we just start there? I, mean Jamie. Let's start with. Top Line Impressions of the Adria Tour Novak Djokovic in the last seventy two hours. Yeah you're right to say that tennis exhibitions don't normally get this much press. I think it's always a funny thing with antennas. When people you know who aren't as familiar with the sport, they see results from from an Axa, whether it's early in the year late in the year, and you know somebody, beat, someone, and most people just sort of shrug it off, but it's as you said really interesting to see how much this has really gone across the world. World and everyone is talking about it and rightfully, so because this is a big issue in I think it was from the Gecko, when we started to see the photos and the videos of everything that was happening between the hugging and everything that was happening on the court, and then of course everything that was happening all off the court. All of those images in those photos are really going to be the mark of this event of this tournament. And jovovich whether or not he deserves all of the blame or not will also be the face of this issue for a long time coming he is the organizer of this event of course, and also the oldest in terms of the players that was there and for me. That was something that you know. He really needed to use his his advantage, and the the younger players thereof and born Cora and others even Dmitrov for what it's worth. You know are are younger than him. They look up to him and for him to invite these players to come to this tournament in for him to organize this in the way that he did end to have the results that we had is just It's not great, and I wish that the best tennis player you know the number one in the world right now had thought a little bit more about how he was exposing all these people. It's unsafe conditions and took a little bit more time to think about how what the results and the repercussions of this could have been. Yeah I mean I think no-one covered themselves in glory.

We hope everybody makes a a quick recovery from virus that we know you know. Six figures over is can be fatal. having said all that I think I mean it's sort of interesting in the grand scheme of things, people who are casual fans or not even sports fans at all. This is hubris recklessness, and here's this athlete who somehow has been living in. Sick enough bubble so that he doesn't realize it. You can pass this on other people and hey.

Premier League back with doubleheader after 100-day shutdown

"Premier league soccer is back this league in Germany had been back for a couple of weeks MLS deal is said to back low Liga just came back from Spain but now we have the UK's premier league beginning Tuesday which is the most popular league in the world at all their matches will be broadcast here in the states of the NBC sports family of networks one of the most popular soccer podcast here stateside is the caught offside podcast and it it's a phenomenal weekly look at all of soccer that includes international soccer and the here the state's MLS soccer it involves international competition and all of the leagues around the world they just do such a good job every time he joins us here on the show so many of our listeners absolutely love his sock reed said even if they're not soccer fans my friend J. J. devante joins us this morning J. J. good morning Hey what is going on are we supposed to be talking about your twenty twenty at the summer I should be in studio what you're wearing a flowery sharks and instead it's what seven o'clock in the morning on drinking a Cup of tea talking about the premier league back in June none of this makes sense I know it's so aggravating that we we are not on the normal soccer schedule or the normal sports schedule but such is life and today the the premier league's return follows the Buddhist leaders returning that was one of the first leagues to come back what is been your early impressions of the way that Buddhist league has returned and one of their biggest evasions which was the fox broadcast pumping in the crowd noise even though there's no fans in attendance I haven't wanted to get back at D. is beyond believable it it's being largely enjoyable except the inevitable happened on Bayern Munich have won it and I think a lot of that this team has gone out of it a little bit as for the the crowd noises and and that of being pumped in I mean we've got a mixed reaction from people on there are the purest they hate this but to be honest with you typically the Germans have done it in a way where even I you would just before the game to be played let's not pretend they're found in the stadium it is what it is I even being won over by it in the in the Bayern Munich Borussia Dortmund game they got things down to such a fine level of ice boys broadcasting back when there was a tackle and I free kick was given against Borussia Dortmund's working Dorman were supposed to be playing at home but there was no home fans they had the perfect noise for the fans jeering the referee so whoever is operating the system in the Bundesliga again as set such a high standard for anybody else to follow on to try and get right they were pitch perfect when the ball hit the back of the net the crowd noise sounded as close to what it would sound like in a real game which stands full of supporters saw that I mean the Bundesliga's got it right in terms of of having you know just soccer back to give the watch a diplomacy has been great D. A. it's been really good to watch now look one thing I I'm about to start reading an article that just just being dropped this morning by a journalist in England who said on average there's been more individual errors and mistakes since the bonus **** restarted in the stadiums without fans so that's really interesting to me if there isn't fans in the stadium because of course the players on the field they can't hear those fake crowd noises if there if there isn't style at fans in the stands does not affect the concentration levels and that the article basically says Dr probably be a lot of mistakes on the restart in the premier league which I mean mistakes are full and that's the honest and that's a fascinating psychological question if we're watching on TV it feels normal to us because as you said they're doing such a good job with riding the levels of the crowd noise it also they've had signage around the lower bowl of the stadium so we don't see a lot of the empty seats but that if the players themselves are creating or for making more mistakes because they're not as focused have you noticed that it's been sloppy play watching the Buddhist legal or even to your train die it hasn't really been all that evidence I honestly don't think I have noticed it per se what I have noticed this kind of a drop off in intensity a little bit I so you know that I suppose that's natural after a three month layoff when players come back that it's not quite as intense but I'm wondering if you play a pressing style of soccer if you're looking to press the full back the defender when he's in in possession of the ball just the crowd kind of carry you along on that because they'll be involved in that process you know they'll be screaming that bit harder they'll be shouting Baptist longer during the price when you went back then there's a big surge of excitement does this all key players heightened and when that isn't there does it slightly become a training exercise in the that there's another point is that it's such a leveling what we believe crowded you know crowd noises on taxes on Kroger such a leveling concept in soccer for example one paramedic one to play Niamh Berlin I think it was nil nil and only on had a chance to get a penalty that wasn't given and with no crowd noise if you imagine the jeering the hostility you know the referee would probably be you know under pressure although they had a video assistant replay maybe he's under a little bit more pressure but you know fourteen like union Berlin who are not a big side burn unit coming into town one of the things that they can do is have a really hostile crowd in a small stadium right on top of the field and they didn't have that and at four thirty if for example are shaving off ten percent of their there I suppose in their modeling for away games in the premier league ten percent because there will be no fans so obviously it's significant J.

Roger Bennett (Men In Blazers) on the Return of the Premier League

"We Win Stadium you will be at home. I can promise you will feel you support. Stay safe. We are still with you and. You'll never walk alone. That was liberal F. C manager Jergen KLOPP in a message released yesterday. That will bring a tear, not just the eyes of his supporters. The dare I say anyone who cares about the most popular sports league in the world. That's right folks. After a three-month hiatus. The English Premier League is back today. Roger Bennett from men in blazers fills us in on these frantic few remaining weeks. So grab a pint and US as sub optimal tour of English soccer. I'm sorry, English football. I mean it comes. It's Wednesday. June seventeenth. This is ESPN daily. Presented by marathon. Roger! Kim's. Are you relieved? Your any skin daily and not my NFL pod, talking about your beloved quarterback Mitch Trubisky You Know God Love Mitch. trubisky is an incredible pressure to be knowing that your whole life is just destined to pan out to become the answer to a trivia question in about ten years, who was taken ahead of Deshaun Watson Patrick Mahomes. Roger Bennett is suffering bears fan. He's also the CO host of men in Blazers on the NBC. Sports Network and the men in Blazers podcast by just braced for him to end up with the green. Bay Packers, leading them on a fourth quarter drive two feet, my beloved Chicago Bears, and I can't wait for that movement. They'll probably deserve it. And we're not talking about bears football today. The wait is over the English premier league. The most Popular Sports League in the world is back after a one hundred day hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic Roger I'm sure you've been getting your fix from Bundesliga but I have to imagine the return of English. Soccer is hitting a little different for you. One hundred days feels like one hundred years to be candid. I've been staring at squirrels running up trees in the park, and feeling the adrenaline burst of a run through midfield, watching raindrops charge down my window and feeling just an incredible wing-play into play of missed from the primarily, but yes, it's back today with its global ratings I mean in Britain for much of Europe for much of the rest of the world outside of the United States, it's kind of a seismic as the NFL and the NBA rolled into with the Pantheon of heroes and villains to moments of glorious ecstasy, searing dispath fuse with dodgy haircuts snack tattoos. One hundred days off. When are going to have ninety two games scattered almost daily over the next couple of weeks. It's coming back because we love it because we miss it. It's coming back for. Hard news commercial reasons ultimately to an economic decision. It's going to come back and ghost game situation where it's fabulous. It's going to be different. The lack of an audience will have an impact on the football. We watched, but most importantly it is going to be good enough. It's GonNa. Be Great enough to connect us to a ruling global conversation and that's ultimately I think. Think we will miss about sports as our calling them. Ghost Games I hadn't heard that got left the Germans. They have a name for everything. Lay. They Call Them Guy Bela. And that is what they will be. Sam Darnold knows a thing or two about those back to English premier league, so we hit positive with most of the season done with exception of Liverpool they're. They're still to be decided. The top half of the table. Seven teams vying for five spots determine who will qualify for Champions League and Europa League which for those who don't know are the midseason European tournaments to be held next year. Roger Liverpool have clinched Champions League. Spot Manchester City has of course been banned from Champions League for Breaking Financial Fair play rules so that. That spot remains open despite city being second in the League. Right now. Arsenal wolves Chelsea Menu Lester Tottenham Sheffield all in the mix. What are you expecting to see from the top of the table? When the race for Champions League qualification, which is a bit like football's march madness, it's big tournament in which the best teams in the world. You're rail, Madrid, your boss Alana's. Para Sanjay Man's by Munich's compete all. Big English teams won't be in that for brand reasons for competitive reasons for commercial reasons and is. And completely wide open at the bottom of the table. All say English football has some Incorr- ellegation, which is if you watch game of thrones? It's a bit like the moon door. Teams get flung through that in baseball, the worst teams every year like the Orioles in the mall in which is flung out of the major leagues, the mooted, and in that place. We had the Tulsa drillers around rook. Rook Express and that is, it's a searing. It is a haunting. It is a savage palm of the global football tradition, and you have six teams at the bottom who are fighting to avoid what can be economically devastating their revenue roughly hauls flung out. The Premier League is savage for the fan base. One Minute. You are watching your team. Take to the glamorous fields, Manchester United and Arsenal the next. Round Brentford Luton Barnsley barring a miracle the Jewish using Norwich canaries will disappear, but there's five teams Aston. Villa Bouma th what furred and West Ham amongst them, two of which will go with them for the big story line. Meena is Liverpool Football Club. American owned little football. Club owned by the Boston Red SOx owners, F S J and their yearning. They're dreaming of a return to greatness that was once titletown by when I was a kid growing up in Liverpool. Just six points away from lending the title that they have dreamed of then. That is the great storyline of the season. On that note. This Sunday. The team that you root for I'm sorry. I'm getting a producer this side you support. Everton, we'll be squaring off against Liverpool. They are twenty five points clear off the other teams in the League, and there's possibility they can clinch the title at Goodison Park Against Your beloved Everton on Sunday

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES.

"munich" Discussed on The World Next Week

"And instead the news media state run news. Media is now talking more about the Chinese government facing this challenge rather than putting the spotlight particularly on shake. Obviously China's not a democratic government not a democratic system. So there aren't a lot of well developed ways for people to signal their displeasure and ended up in in change certainly political leadership but even non democratic countries have politics. And it's clear that if the Kobe twenty. Nineteen epidemic worsens and it does have an impact as some people suggested may have on Chinese economy. That would go right to the hardest. She's claiming legitimate sake. Which is largely. And I think for the Communist Party writ large based on the notion that they're going to bring a better tomorrow. It's not clear how strong the Chinese system is how brittle it might be and again a lot of unknowns. You're not saying all of a sudden demarcus coming to China not my point but it could be something which the Internal Politics Indie Communist Party could be turned upside down depending on how things unfold down the road and it's especially interesting to contrast that with the coverage of this in Hong Kong. You know this is that we've talked about Hong Kong a lot. Lately because of the Democratic stirrings there and the and the huge demonstrations that have continued but they have a much more open media situation. They're much more. Open information flow. And they're able to go to the point to these foibles and word of mouth gets around and and even with the major lockdown in control and press. One could imagine that this the performance of she will Will be judged by many Chinese. Certainly will jim how about you. Who or what is your favorite? We Bob I'M GONNA go with a number and it's a really big number. It's four point eight trillion dollars and asked the size of the twenty twenty. Us Budget proposal that the trump administration put on the table this week and already mentioned one of the proposals in it which was to cut spending on foreign assistance by twenty one percent. As I said I think that's dead on arrival on Capitol Hill but a number of other things in the budget that are relevant. Number one is that it is going to run a deficit if it is accepted again. This budget is going to go through an arduous process over on Capitol Hill President Trump. Who on the campaign trail at talked about you know closing the budget deficit in his first term? And it's gone the other direction out about a trillion dollars worth of debt to the national debt. I will note that the Defense Department's going to get a slight point. Three percent increase the so-called non defense discretionary portion the budget which is about slightly less than fifty percent of the overall federal government spending up for a five percent caught if the trump administration gets way and I think for this budget as most budgets in recent years Democrat or Republican president. It is going to be dismembered and become the source of a lot of conflict between the two ends of Pennsylvania. Avenue one is become clear in the last decade is that the is is no longer able to pass. Its overall government funding on the traditional schedule because the fiscal year begins in October. One a lot of what's in this proposal is not likely. See the light of day because we simply don't have the kind of political consensus in Washington to get behind a move a budget according to the normal legislative mechanisms. Yeah that's interesting to juxtapose that Jim with what we just went through with the impeachment hearing whether you had a nearly party line vote With Republicans in the Senate to a quick president trump doesn't necessarily mean at least by initial indications they will follow through and support lock stock Merrill. What he's calling for in his budget as they haven't in the past they've as you said restored a of funding in areas like aid. I noticed a number of Republicans responding with concern. They note that was distributed by former chairman. Mike Mullen Mullen about you know raising alarms about reducing spending on an areas of sort of soft power diplomatic power because that supposed to be seen as part and parcel of us. National Security is is advancing on multiple fronts efforts to create greater stability and not sort of just hard power. So it's a bit of a debate about policy coherence and also about. I think you know what the party is will get behind right. And there's always this underlying question of what it is that you want the government to do and the trump budget particularly singled out the Commerce Department. Many proposes cut the Commerce Department's budget by thirty seven percent and a lot of that has to do with cuts for the Census and I suspect the appetite on Capitol Hill for those cuts is going to be minimal or non-existent but again it gets us back to this question. We've talked about how awful lot you know. How long can the? Us government continue to put its expenditures on a credit card. And again the way we do that. Is We borrow money and we can borrow a lot of money because worry big strong economy but at some point that can come back to haunt you and the reality is should the United States in the near future. Go through an economic recession. This red ink is going to hemorrhage why because revenues coming in or going to go down and expenses are going to go up because a lot of government programs are we call countercyclical think unemployment insurance in bride of other things so we we have a fundamental budget problem in this country and we're not dealing with it and it's not just the trump administration because congresses equally unenthusiastic about taking on the kind of changes that would sort of rights is or fix our structural deficit. Why because it means some people are going to have to pay more or some people are going to have to get less or both. That is not the kind of message. Politicians. WanNa bring to the voters. My fear figure. The week is only going to get larger Jim in the months to come it will bob. What about you? Who or what is your fingers? Week so figures a person is the former president of Sudan. Omar Al-Bashir who this week was seemingly offered up to the IC inertia criminal court to face charges for crimes against humanity and genocide. While he was in office was the first person in office to be indicted by the court for these charges he had been considered a fugitive. He's while he was in power he kind of dodged the court and through his his travel was sort of furtive For a while but the announcement. This Week was interesting. It's not by any means conclusive but it raised a lot of interesting conjecture and Analysis about where Sudan is going in the state of sort of international justice. It was the Sudan's ruling Sovereign Council that announced this week that all Sudanese wanted by the ICC would appear before so among those wanted of course our former president Al-Bashir so an icy official was unable to confirm that that was going to happen. There was a bit of qualifying about when these people wanted by the icy would in fact be handed over. So there's a lot to get to happen Jim. But it was welcomed. Let's say by the International Justice Community that sees the pursuing of of officials like Bashir. And let's just take a backtrack. He was behind by many many accounts. The atrocities committed in Darfur. And not. Just they're not just there as well but most notably in Darfur and so to be able to prosecute and have him face. Justice is seen as a crucial step for the country for continent navy for the international community to show that these types of actions cannot be met with impunity. There's a lot of debate about whether or not how effective that is. There's been a lot of debate in Africa itself about the ICEES performance. It's gone almost exclusively after African violators of these crimes. But they're also those in in Africa as well saying this type.

"You had a major party making common cause with the far-right off-day. Can I stop you right there? Because that was a really big deal and it led to the end of the political career. The person we presumed was going to be the next German. Chancellor that's Kopf I have the correct that is correct. You sort of just give us a little clip on that because I was fascinated by that outcome so she's apparently gave her blessing to a move in the state of during. Yeah Wear part of Germany. It's a eastern actually borders on Bavaria. Yet it's traditionally eastern it. I think it's a capitalist effort and there was enough of a change it was. It was a minute. Change actually in numbers but enough that created a space for the Free Democratic Party which is part it's often in alliance with this conservatives to step in and use even from a minority position to try to form a government there and they were given the blessing of the CD the Conservative Party to reach out to the FDA. The far right party that has been an athem to German politics. This is a big taboo. Jerem absolutely lying with the parties on the far right exactly and that did not go over. Well shall we say and caused such an uproar that I'll kick as admitted? A mistake is stepping back from her looming role as as the successor. She was Merkel's she was an picks absolutely urgent and party head. And this was this decision where. Merckel stepped down as party head seated to her and then she was seen as in running out so this was German politics into a mix. Also summons up another great compound. German were that I was familiar with when I lived in Munich for gun heights. Pavetti gung overwhelmed by the past. Jim Okay. Germans are overwhelmed by the pets. They are burdened by. That's going to be one of the driving sort of senses going on Germany as they seek a successor. So you have that playing out feeding into this west Lewis issue but also an enormous raft of issues. They're gonNA talk about everything from the corona virus outbreak in the steps being taken. They're going to talk about. What is the European security role in trying to bring peace to Syria to Libya and all sorts of other issues between Jim? So there's a lot on the agenda the role the United States As a bit of a disruptor in a lot of issues as well it will come up the US. And you mentioned the Afghanistan piece you might have the US announcing a bold peace deal with the Taliban at this conference but yet a lot of issues really sorted out in the role to which NATO might play a role needles being pressed to play on Iraq and we should mention as well. It looks like they are going to provide some assistance on the ground Iraq to allow US troops to to withdraw so this conference is always looked kind of a bellwether of of the state of the alliance in the state of the world. Really going to be fascinating this year. Do you anticipate they're going to be some conversations within the transatlantic community at least among foreign ministers and political officials in Europe in the United States given that Secretary Pompeo and esber both their Turkey. In light of Secretary Pales recent comments about China being the central threat of our times on this issue of whether the West should rally together in the face of growing Chinese power. I think so Jim. And it's going to come down to specific issues though look no farther than the ongoing discussions over who away. The giant Chinese tech firm that is at the forefront of providing five G. services in the US pressing its allies not to accept while way as their infrastructure builder they kind of got up somewhat of a compromise at but was not seen as announced by the UK recently about how it was going to go and how it was going to use while way and so that's going to come up. The greater theme of the challenges the world is facing will also encompass Russia although Russia. Is this kind of fuzzy matter. The US is committed to helping Ukraine Ukraine's at the center of a US. The rancorous impeachment proceeding that just ended in the. Us and Russia might be invited to the G. Seven meeting the summer host. Us So Russia's got kind of odd place in that whole discussion as well the US National Security Strategy Mentions China and Russia's main competitors to the US so we'll that come up and will they be able to come together and make some sort of common cause and that is going to be interesting another issue. That's throwing sort of a spoiler for them. All is Iran the main US allies the French and the Germans and the and the UK along with Russia helped negotiate the Jcp away agreement with Iran. That is now on its last breath. But it's going to require some formal steps. I think from the US allies to allow sanctions to snap back full-fledged sanctions a snap back against around USA's pressing for this and it's not clear it's going to happen in a smooth fashion well to go back to this topic of West listless and still not sure exactly what it is. But I do think that this year's Munich security conference is GonNa make clear how much division there is within the West. I think so Jim. I think these these conferences sort of follow a certain pattern but this one is going to be very interesting to see the reports coming out and also that the kind of the wraps is going to be blow by blow. And then there's GonNa be some interesting. Wrap Up Sunday Monday. And that'll be interesting to watch. While Jim leaving from Munich to continue on a very important trip is US secretary state. Mike Pompeo he's going to go to on Gola. Ethiopia and Senegal his trip to these African nations centers around two main themes youth empowerment and economic growth trade and investment. Jim Can you tell us a bit about the secretary's agenda for the Strip? Certainly Bob the main message secretary pompeo wants to convey on this trip is that Africa matters to the United States in that comes against the backdrop referred to pompeo's arguments than repeated variety of places that China presents a threat to Western values western ideas. Now I think the secretary is going to have some challenges in getting that message across number one as a lot of people pointed out he has been secretary of state for more than a year and this is first trip to any country in Africa as a secretary of state moreover there is the question of what is the United States willing to do for countries in Africa and this comes against the backdrop off the trump administration unveiling its budget this week and the administration posing yet again that it wants to slash spending on foreign assistance wants to cut that budget by twenty one percent. It's likely not to be sustained by Congress for the past three years with a controlled by Republicans or Democrats. Congress has refused to go along with these cuts but many African leaders will point out that China is in Africa. It's investing heavily in. Africa is bring something to table for Africans. What is it that secretary? Pompeii was bringing on behalf of the United States and to the extent African CBS's lectures. It's likely not to be received terribly well as one. African leader said when REX Tillerson went through on his trip talking about how African countries should in essence beware of the Chinese leader. Said Africans are mature enough to engage in partnerships on their own volition. So I think that macro argument is going to be hard for the secretary to make. Let's go quickly through the countries in Senegal. Yeah was going to say three interesting. Countries are chosen. Senegal is many ways. Success Story in Africa as long history of democratic governance. And I would imagine we'll be talking about security partnerships going forward tension for better trade economic investment. I think it's going to be a bit more difficult. When secretary pompeo ghost and Gola he is going to meet with President. Joel Lorenzo and I think it's going to be a big message congratulating him on his new presence. I think he came to office in two thousand seventeen tried to make corruption focal point of his administration. But as we talk just in the last podcast the daughter of the last president Mr Santos has been accused of some pretty extensive corruption and are just not in goal is a country. That's an difficult straight. This is a country about thirty three million people and when I was sort of reading up on for the podcast today I was struck by this one statistic. The median age in. Angola is fifteen point. Nine years that means half. The population is younger than sixteen. That's a remarkable talk about a youth. Bulge are the challenging goal of faces in the one in its considerable wealth. Lot of oil will concert something. Like fifty percent. The overall Gross Domestic Product and SEVENTY PERCENT OF GOVERNMENT REVENUES. Oil prices have fallen. So that's a country that is facing some very very big challenges and again. The question is the United States can urge anti corruption policies. It can clap for elections. But what can the United States do to prepare it to do? Perhaps the most interested in those GonNa come out. It's all about where. Secretary Pompeo is going to have discussions with the European prime minister. Avi Ahmed we recall won last year's Nobel Peace Prize for his reform efforts or ending the conflict with neighboring Traya. Big Topic here is going to be the status of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. This is a dam on the headwaters of the Blue Nile. It has been in trained for a number of years and the reason significant is it has the potential to affect the flow of water downstream and. What's downstream Egypt. And the Egyptians have bitterly opposed this damn the United States and I'll give the trump administration credit for this has been trying to sort of negotiate between the to broker an agreement because once the damn starts filling up its potential less water getting to Egypt and if you have any sort of understanding of Egypt the Nile is its lifeline. Is You get more than ten or twenty miles from the Nile Easter West it turns into pretty inhospitable territory particularly for anything remotely approaching agriculture. And the hope is that the be able to come to an agreement that will allow the feeling of the Ethiopian dam but not damage the situation for the Egyptians. A lot of national pride is in ball for the Europeans. This is not only survey major statement for them that they can put together such a massive infrastructure program but they see a great economic opportunity this dams going to generate a lot of hydro electric power. Electricity they can sell it to other people. They can also use it to power their own country. This is a country of ninety million plus people which has a lot of potential but also a long way to go so. It's going to be very interesting if there is one. Potential for good news on this trip is that we make some progress on bringing the Egyptians in the Ethiopian together. No it's a real test for governance you know you had this country celebrated rightly so so far. I think for a peaceful transition of power to a new elected government and dealing with an epic challenge in something that will need to be handled delicately working with a country that has gone backwards in its democratic progress. Such as it was In the post Arab spring phase. So yeah I think you're right Jim and that that will be. Maybe the single most significant part of the trip but the trip happening at all. I think is significant official. We've seen most often visiting Africa that that I've seen in reports the trade rep Mark Robert Lighthizer because you have trade development circulating as well with places like Kenya so it's going to be very interesting. We'll see what happens on that Front Bob. But now we're going to turn to the figures of the week segment of our podcast. GonNa Begin as always with our audience figures of the week. This week's figure coming to us from our twitter poll is President Xi Jinping. Why is President Xi figure of the week? Bob Jim President. Xi is facing what many see as the major humanitarian economic crisis of his time of his leadership period period which he has consolidated power in a way that we haven't seen since Mao Tse Tung and under his watch. The country has stumbled from the outset by all accounts on terms of slow to recognize and to acknowledge a problem with an outbreak. In Wuhan what we've had previously known as the Wuhan Virus Alcove Twenty Nineteen Cova Twenty nineteen slow and but also in the way unique to authoritarian governments. I'd also suppressed those voices that were trying to shed light on including The celebrate Dr who unfortunately passed away from the virus and not long ago and so precedes dealing with this recent reports today. Indicate that some Communist Party officials were removed from Wuhan and Hebei Province where one is located. They also did some updated accounting of the of the outbreak. I think raising the diagnostic threshold for what accounts for the disease. Partly because I think I've seen some reports that they don't have enough testing kit. So they decided to broaden the basis for considering the outbreak so they've added multiple thousands of cases they've increased the number of deaths by a couple of hundred over thirteen hundred deaths at this less reporting Jim and so it remains a disease mainly lethal and causing problems in China itself but China having such a huge role in the global economy and in so many other ways is This is having an impact beyond its borders. Certainly if not insertive of illness than in other ways so it is a huge challenge for she. I think as I said before the Munich conference. I'm sure it'll be issue that Chinese officials will be facing a lot of questions about and people will be looking to. This somewhat inscrutable figure. Pardon the Cliche to see what how he kinda handles. What must be an incredibly stressful moment? Certainly Bob one of the interesting things is how the Chinese state run media. And that's what the media are in China have been handling this early. On one of the new shows talked about president sheets of taking a hands on role in very quickly. The state news media changed. Its tone perhaps in part because if you're the one that's hands on taking ownership and leadership you then become responsible on if it goes in the wrong direction. That's not good politically..

"We'll take more of your calls. Danielle fatal in just a minute at eight seven seven three three three three seven four to five as we get ready to explore of Varia on travel with Rick Steves by email you can reach us at radio at Rick Steves Dot Dot Com and in just a bit wildlife photographer. Marty tells us about some of his favorite animals and reptiles that he's encountered in the wild Danila Beatles our guide to Munich and Bavaria Right now on travel with Rick Steves and Catherine's on the line from Decor Iowa at eight seven seven three three correct Catherine. What are your plans for southern Germany. I'm taking my sixteen year old grandson communicative area and that guy was one of the places that he would like to visit and so my question I too is there easy public transportation from Munich out tobacco and back and then how can I best prepare him for that experience. visiting concentration camps good questioned Daniele. You're a parent you want your teenager to get a respect for what happened. In the Holocaust that takes a little bit of thoughtfulness well I sixteen. I don't know what they have been taught at school maybe to find out already what he we know so far about well if he says he wants to go there. It's probably interesting to find out why he would sixteen wants to go there so he must know something about it. then if if I'm not wrong there is a show recently about the Holocaust but you didn't know we we made a TV show on interesting ashes people that would be a very good thing to watch beforehand Karen. If you find the Rick Steves show about Fascism and you can stream that on the Internet easily and then you have plenty of museums also dedicated to the Holocaust so probably would be a new docu center immune immune goal so yes for the Holocaust and you would see that before going out to doc. It's a very good good exhibit. right in Munich. What is important I find personally very important is to make sure that your son understands the rising of fascism and not just out of context Holocaust and it has happened in Germany so I think you have we. We should try to get it puts in the context and then to get to Dachau and Beck is very easy with public transportation it takes forty five minutes so you you should dedicate probably a day to this the whole subject theme Minimum Day also tours in hood offered by companies and it's the parental rental thing for a teenager. I can see what Danielle is trying to explain because as a tour guide I'm sure she's dealt with it and some kids can handle it other kids. You'd have to be careful about this. DACA is probably a good example of a concentration camp for teenagers more than some other camps but you would wanna be there with them mm-hmm and help curate what they're looking at because it's it's a powerful powerful experience and it's a valuable experience good for your teenager for having a curiosity about it and good good for you as a parent to help make that happen does that help. Catherine yes and I've seen on the show them and but I don't believe my grandson isn't has seen it so that's a good suggestion to make sure that he's he sees that before we go and Germany's doing a very good job of sharing the lessons from it's hard history for travelers these days much. It's better now than twenty years ago so as you travel around there's a lot you can see do i. I would say something fascinating is going to work discarding where there's another documentation nations center where people that you learn about it and then you can actually go up into Hitler's Eagle's nest and that's quite a fascinating experience without the graphic heartache of a concentration camp. Thanks for your call Katherine Amandus calling in from Concord in California Amanda. Thanks for your call. Hi Rick Hi Danielle. Thanks for taking my call. My husband and I are planning a trip and we're planning on bringing our six year old daughter so I was hoping for some recommendations of places in Munich and around.

You have of course along the easer river that runs through Munich. That is beautiful beautiful. You can stroll you can walk down. They can have a picnic down there. She can play. It's like a park yeah yeah yeah. It's it's wonderful. I don't know if she's riding a bike in Munich. Children with six years ride their bikes already that could be in.

Even the tram goes down to public transport it's the Bavaria Film Studios where the Never Ending Story was filmed in where they still food. who were you know the dog kind of fluffy one? It's there and there's also in the forest as some wildlife where they have years bore and all the animals and they explain about the forest animals in in Bavaria so that's nice. That's very close together again. That is extra slightest is st next to the Bavaria Film Studios so when you go there and it's it's next to it and there's a tram public transport ghosted takes twenty minutes in the park the English Garden English Garden Beautiful Place. You can see the People Surfing yes also. There's a river where there's a constant wave and people are surfing just like you know in in the ocean right on the river in Munich which is a lot of fun for kids to watch and it's not nature but it's certainly interesting the deutsches museum exactly and that's down at the river so kid oriented things a wonderful planetarium and and and that would be like going to the Smithsonian Institute but in Germany and then of course all the robot on all the year lose rights that are surrounding the Louis Rights to do so if you have a car in the hills of the Debit Yeah Amanda the Ski Lifts in the summer they still run but they don't take skiers.

That's going to be even bigger. More than seven million. People will then probably seven seven million of that's a lot of two weeks a lot of a lot of oxygen a lot of oxen on a spit. Yes a a lot of chicken. A lot of happiness call it. The fifth season in October. Pets is the fifth season of the year it overwhelms it takes over the city in a beautiful away just coincidentally because of my work. I've been in Munich two times for October fest in the last two years and both times when I went to octoberfest Daniela at occurred to meet. It's not really touristy. It's very local local people I mean tourists go there a lot but this is a chance for locals to celebrate their or clan their their friends their style. Each tent has a different personality. I think if you have the chance to go to the octoberfest on the weekend and also in the middle of the week then you see the two different worlds of October fest on the weekends. It's the tourists in there and if you go at lunchtime during the week that's wonderful. It's calm it's quiet. The weather generally is very beautiful still so beginning of October end of September. You have warm weather. You can sit outside and there it is common. The locals and people makes up and I noticed the security security is very good and injured in Europe. There's a lot of soft targets in Germany like France and and he has had to be careful of people that want to make a terrible event yeah and Germany is very good at not closing down but just making good security so the grounds would be controlled and there's one or two entries and exits in each of those you have police checking you and then I noticed beg check and so on and I think it feels it just feels wonderful inside and I'm so thankful they can still have big parties like that. Yes it is it is somebody told me the biggest risk is people fighting with a with a glass mug which was always which was always the biggest. I danger because some people when they get drunk. They're they're just crazy. Physical and these mugs are ounce a leader. It's a it's a liter of beer ear and when you are empty with that you've got it in your hand in your anger you can. I understood that it's like it's considered a a serious crime if you hit somebody with a Mug just because they have to. I'm very careful about that. They're even designed to the handle breaks easily. Yeah I talk about interesting things when you're sharing beer doctoral best so they want interesting still wanNA keep them up because at some point but it is dangerous so they have to design it so they handle breaks off if you hit somebody with it but they wanted to forbid one time was to stand on the bench is actually actually to dance which did not go through so you cannot smoke anymore into tents which you still they did not get through with not standing on the it was traditions in fact. I've got a photograph of my plate with the beautiful Sauerkraut and and so on and the pork knuckle with two big German boots right next to it because people were standing ending on my table and I was just thinking. Don't step on my crowd. Our crowd never step on tour guide. Dan Yellow fatal is giving us. That's a good taste of Bavarian culture today on travel with Rick Steves then yellow also lead small group Tours in Europe and Morocco and displays her beautiful photography work at had her own gallery in Avenue in France. Our phone number is eight seven seven three three seven four to five and Doug selling in from Bristol in Maine Doug. Thanks Spear Call Hi Rick and Danielle my wife and I are traveling to Europe for the first time and we're we get TAB TAB two days in Munich and obviously we're doing the research on what to see Munich and it seems like everything starts with Marian and plots and the Glock and Spiel but everybody then mentions you gotta go to the Hoffbrau House in that's the beer whole you need to see but here in Maine everybody wants to lobster and seafood in they want that quintessential seafood dinner and end phrases fine where the locals eat and that's where you're going to get the best seafood dinner at the restaurant that has the tour bus and so the Hudson how songs you know like fun but would you recommend like other beer halls in the area that maybe the Munich people actually have a beer at the end of a workday they were we could feel in meet some German people right all right doug. You know it's so important to see the hoffbrau speeds. It's historic. It's classic. It's got live music but remember. It's just a touristy thing. I really really enjoy the hoffer house actually for a lot of reasons. The history is there. It's too stretched in history but people have there's many beer halls and different people have their favorites Danielle. What would have different beer hall to consider a different one would be definitely and if you want to meet the locals and probably eighty percent of the locals agree on that the best Bayern Munich is to Gustin beer so augastine Augustina like the monks and so one beer garden is for example behind the train station can walk there from the train station Augustina via garden close to the train train station. You just have to ask people noise so there you have ever locals people from all over the place and then there are these gardens all over the city spread out in the different neighborhoods so if you who are adventurous and you get yourself a public transport pass and you go out and then applets is a good place w. e. n. e. r. Vena like Vietnam Edna written in German that you write it out and then you'll find it and then you go there. There's another Augustino Beer Garden and that is the one where I grew up flakes. Okay so Augustino. That's a very very good idea because it's great beer and Beer Gardens Nice evening. You're outside and you're going to experience this wonderful word that as a tour guide in Bavaria you always he's probably have to deal with Kate. Yes you'll feel that in the in the garden in the beer garden what is what is communicate communicate this phenomenon. We have I would say in Bavaria in the pre Alpine on the Alpine air is communicated coziness. You feel safe. it is if you're outside in a beer garden. Obviously this is not the case generally. It's a little bit too warm where it's community. because you are close together is a closeness cozy. It's sir you feel just comfortable and you time. Maybe there's no importance him. Every winter it would be shelly or somewhere in a hut in a mountain hut in somewhere so particular invade smaller space smaller areas so communities tied yes in the beer gardens with the music so that's probably something maybe maybe an in a small cafe or field he doug. Thanks for your question and enjoy your trip to Munich. Thank you one quick question. What's the Radler Rattler Radler a mix of sprites lemon sprite like you have it here. half sprite have lager beer and Radler is called a biker occur rod means spiker in Bavarian and so after that you easily ride with your bike through the city on the bike path didn't put that together rattlers for the bikers yeah. If you want to feel like you have a beer but you're not that interested in drinking cut it with your seven up and if a real beer drinker you don't order rod leads to sweet rhetoric and it's kind of the feminine drink to a lot of a lot of women will go for the radnor but the men will be insulting so that's like an English. There's publish and it's too. It's a Shandy handy but another good drink to know about is a apple surely absolutely apple all schol- as an apple apple means apple now so it's a mix of juice which generally are other sweet and we don't like things so sweet often and so we wanted refreshing and then you mix it up with bubbly water so so half half refreshing or insurer any any throw any choose mixed with a public water. I like Radler your woman. I'm a bike lake riding one he doug. Thanks for your call. uh-huh.

Bavaria was a distinct nation from the rest of what we now call Germany it had its own ruling family and its own favourite foods and culture culture from its capital Munich up into the Alps. Bavaria is a region that provides many Americans with the images picture when we think of old world Germany today nick is often called Germany's most livable city. I like that it's pedestrian-friendly historic core kind of makes the big city feel like an easy going Bavarian town. It's also where tour guide than yellow fatal was born and raised she joins us now on travel with Rick Steves to explore the highlights of Munich and Bavaria and they help us kickoff kickoff the October fest season with a look at what's unique about southern Germany Daniele del Carmen. Thank you for inviting me Rick Scott Gross Gut. There's a good example. You wouldn't say Truscott in Berlin. Would you know he wouldn't you would only say that. Chris got in Bavaria into southern areas particularly air. Maybe even over the border to titled. We'll tyrol in Austria Austria or in Bavaria. You would have that charming southern kind of dialect when we think Danielle of the dialect between the north and the south of Germany. That's the little sort of the little topping of a deep cultural difference between the north and the south. How would you as the Bavarian characterize the difference between somebody who lives in Prussia in the north and somebody who lives in Bavaria in the south so me coming from the South. That's probably a little bit subjective but I would say that in the South the language of ideas different language a little bit slower. We drop a couple syllables. Bulls were used the wrong articles and we don't mind that and everyone else minds it otherwise I would say probably people a little bit more relaxed than the idea of the German people take their time. They want to be outside. A Lot. People are Mubarak and when I say Baroque I mean it's always a little bit too much a little bit of too muchness whole Ed like oil the top. Yes we like to celebrate in the in Bavaria. Much I was going to say when you talked about your talion in the south and Bavaria and in Italy when somebody is over the top they're easy mo Maybe maybe the Bavarians a little bit you see see more often you hear even in Italy that people from New Orleans would say or Italians would say that Munich is the most northern Italian city that day is now that relates. It's also to the religion because the pope I think took good care of Bavaria because Bavaria was up sort of foothold of Catholicism in the land of the reformation and so the pope central extra dose of relics Tube Riveria to Munich so that they felt closer to Rome is very dense net of Abbey's Abe's we have Benedictine averaging particularly countryside in various so when you drive through the countryside the pre Alpine lands you have beautiful most of the time Baroque style counter reformation style. Abe's is simone is simone various. Does you see some church. Maybe the vs Kirk exactly Obama overall or go you know the onion domes the onion domes that you see all over the country sites that are very recognizable. I think that is typical for the Bavarian countryside and you would not see that in Hamburg no spire northern story Protestant spire and in Bavaria. You've got those elegant onion domes because also is that often think Germany is considered as being a Protestant country yeah because we connect or particularly in the United States maybe connect with Luther Luther and so we think Protestant. It's not southern Germany now. Everyone moves in so things generally in the south particularly in Bavaria. Varia people are Catholic. One of the most impressive relics I can think of is in Saint Peter's Church in Munich you walk into Saint Peter's Church just as you enter. There's this it's amazing jeweled skeleton. that was a gift from the Church you step into the church and he go whoa. This is not Martin Luther country. This is like Catholic Komo. It's it's way you have these baroque style on the ceilings to open ceilings with the Pastel colors and a lot of gold and richly decorated rated. Now you said on the dialect then you have some wrong. sounds like you're saying intentionally wrong is we're you know the standard. German the formal German his Hawk Deutsche Right. Yes and you can write in hall storage. Yes you probably have to write in high German. That's formal but you don't speak in like a Shakespearean Experien- actor exactly on the countryside so you mean what's an example. Can you give me a little a dialect to Berliner Hamburg. Let's say so we go to a restaurant yeah in dodge so in written German we would save again in festival. We used arresting go to we are going to the restaurant okay beginning restaurant and in Bavaria we would say McCain Gustov to begin an interest along so gear gang gang a person from another city would know Oh. This is a a bavarian. It would definitely whenever they have. I've traveled there with no notes from the person from the south somewhere or with the article for example it is we say the plate. The plate is Taylor right in the very thus Taylor. No you get the set mixed up. Yes totally. I didn't know you can do that. You can when you Bavarian because that's why I quit. Germany was because I couldn't remember if it was dared dior. Dust there is a male or female neutral pronoun and I was all stressed out about that but I could have just said hey hey. I'm very whatever you want you. Just celebrate that you have particular. You'll give you an exceptional. It's a declaration of independence. You know we're not been not berliner been kind berliner. I'm also a bill inner. Let's like that. I'm also besides that I'm Bavarian and I'm also villain okay so you've got your your independent spirit traveled. Steve's we're talking with Daniele Vidal and she's proud of ovarian. She's a guide who who gave to all over Germany and we're talking about the difference between Bavaria and the rest of our country when we're talking about this I almost think about how proud people from Texas are in the United United States and there's that sort of spirit that yes we can do it. We don't need to be told how to do it from New York or or California. Is there a little bit of that between Munich and Berlin Yep. I do feel I do think that there are some malaria as far as the perception and maybe also do consciousness between Bavarians and Texans in the way that there are similarities in the sense that its various rod a conservative Bundesland state religion place still quite important role then then Dr these islands Indus conservatism like I think in Texas too so the countryside is rather conservative very Catholic and then you have Munich for example as an island ray social democratic graddick government since Second World War so the state government of Bavarian could be very conservative and if the tourist goes to Munich they would think no this is liberal. What's going on well. It's that urban rural divide that we have here in the United States as well. The perception may be also from the outside what I experienced with the guests how Texans sends in Texas is perceived of course it's I mean they're wonderful people everywhere but it's the same thing that other Germans would see always with a little bit yeah uh-huh added today they are different and they want to be different to. We like like the lone star. Texas has Lonestar in Bavaria has the loan I do yeah. Ill make our rules. Do it your style now. When American thinks about Germany there's certain cliches but a lot a lot of times. Those German cliches are actually not German but very yes. What's an example well for example. I do believe that a lot of Americans think that all Germans humans eat pretzel or big the Big Pretzel yes or that everyone who is kind of in the folkloristic club has a lederhosen or whereas dwindle that in all the cities are may pull in when you're happy. Yodel and Yodel everyone and everyone plays the we say entered a music you say papa music the data and that's these are all things that are German but they are particularly are Bavarian and so you would never find anyone who eats a Schwann's huckster or pork walking Nakal in Hamburg. They hearing it's so funny because I'm just thinking of Hamburg because Hamburg is like close to Denmark and it's a long way from Rome. Yes and you don't have the dirndls. You don't have this lap-dancing. No you don't have the yodeling but the American would think all those things.

I love to take pictures so then I get away and try to find the quirky little things whether it's the lovelock's through the shoe's on the telephone wire or some other strange range states that I saw but all in all it was a great day. That's great well. Thanks choice for your for your call and your memories this is travel with Rick Steves or emails emails radio at Rick Steves. Dot Com and Jabe has emailed us from Titusville in Florida and JP rights. What are the taste treats of this region not to miss he. He says I remember the spicy grilled sausages and the seasonal fruits and vegetables are they're special tastes from your experience that we should plan on trying. Your plan is right in the middle of the country so really cut influences from all sides of Slovenia in Slovenia is small but it's very diverse so you get the sausages from the north and the the Sauerkraut Sauerkraut is actually excellent in Louisiana and on the market you have to try to for autumn winter times and then from the Hungarian influences from the East from the Atlantic coast wicket pastas center risotto's everywhere into Blanda. You will get all of that. It's all OK P ties excellent in Louisiana Ana but now this traditional blonde dishes are coming back to the city centre and one of them fried frog legs really if you're Louis Frog legs land not sleep right wow so when we talk about a cultural crossroads where Italian Germanic aw it's also the cuisine and also liberty was the green capital of Europe in two thousand sixteen so it's a lear in sustainability and climate change sensibilities allergies and so on what makes locally on a special from a green environmental point of view there was so many things were done in the bladder in the last last fifteen years. I mean according to the traffic regulation. We kicked out cars from the city centre. It's all bicycles Sustainability Green Energy in the city centre recycling product lots of trees. It's very green. Lots of parks and people love recreation. They all live with this project and also whatever was done into plan. It was done for the people who live there so not for the tourist tourists can enjoy it. Of course there are welcome but it was done on for us and I think it shows that's an interesting point because in Europe now there are many cities suffering from tourism that are just too popular and in Libya. You don't feel that you feel it is done for the people it is still down for the people I mean more people are coming but for now also I would say that there are so many little places to explore that we we don't experience the big line sent. You know that there is no rush to see one important. Thing is just you can disperse to different areas and just enjoy either side so cameron. You're an expert at knowing where the big sites are the marquee sites in these great cultural capitals and Liberals WanNa. There's not the marquee sites exactly exactly as Barbara was saying because there's not any big name sites.

"They have to go back to the basic of democracy instead of pointing fingers to other countries, they really should reform their political system. So that their political system will be more responsible for the dispute distribution of wealth and stability within their all society. So that global system can be sustained in the long run because right now, really the his is the fun. It's one of the biggest. Problems for populism. Thank you. Let's take a short break. Your coming back. We'll continue our discussion. You're listening to today. I'm joing come back to our panel on the takeaways from the Sears Munich security conference. Joining our discussion today Rick Donham, co director of the global business journalism program of Tsinghua University. Jal high research fellow was Chinese Academy of social sciences, and hence Peter Berkoff professor and chair of the banking and funds department at university of home Heim in Germany, also, Dr John would you like to finish on your point just now because so far we haven't touch upon one of the key issues for this year's security conference and one of the contributors to the current instability arrest in the west, and that is the development of social media and the rise of innovative means of communication, and in many ways a lot of the political figures nowadays criticizing the so-called fake news. And now, there's really facts free politics in many of these countries and particularly in populism. Ticks. So I think one of the things is that how do we deal with this rising tide of social media and also more and more, you know, face so-called, fake news or on real news. And how do we agree on a common sense or a set of fact or set set of truce, and so that we can base our policy on it? That's the challenge major challenge for times. Yes. Indeed. Let's look at the civic issues navy on Dr Donan German Chancellor and remarkable defended European nations decision to stand by. Von you clergy on this needing where do you think the Europeans and Americans are headed regarding the Iran issue? I think it's very important. What chancellor Merckel did of to stand by the Iran nuclear deal in the United States right now, there is very strong support for Donald Trump's decision to pull out. Earlier. I had said he is in the minority on some of the other issues with Europe. But right now there is there is strong opposition in the US to continuing in this deal. So I think it's very important for Europe to maintain solidarity. I mean, they the the deal has been effective. And if they if they back away at all, I think it could collapse and we could get into a situation of spiralling militarization. And I think that's dangerous at a time where Saudi Arabia is getting particularly assertive having a balance between Iran and Saudi Arabia. I think is important and weakening Iran serves the interests of Saudi Arabia and the Trump forces in the US to your events foreign minister on the hamlet, Jerry rejected. Mike Pence's call for Europe to leave the nuclear deal and set that Europe needs to be willing to get wet. If it wants to spend against Denver tired of US, let unilateralism what do you make of this?

So think if we'll be in the interest of great interest of middle power comeback to a more peaceful and less aggressive stance. Mean by his son? Middle powers believes middle Powell's like like the countries in eastern Europe. Well, they they will have problems there's Russia because Russia seemingly doesn't accept the borderlines. We had before China is definitely in very active in south East Asia at the moment, which is complex Filipino Indonesia might become a problem in South America, the United States seemingly interfere. There's no sympathy on my side for someone like Madura. But in a way, there's a higher level of activity guns is countries and the greater willingness maybe to use power again, these countries if they're in the way of some great power. And and if you look at this as I said, if you look at how much spent on on the fence how much spent on the army as he's powers almo big powers, and for me one of crucial question is how big is Russia truly. Recipe paneling. But if you look at the real power Russia number an over persuading, and that might get into trouble as well. Don't you just now with mention about the very different views from he was and the Europe on a variety of equal issues. And I think all of you have mentioned about the there are multiple factors contributing to the shifting of those waters. So do you think that maybe the US and Europe they the both should bear some of the blame of the withering of the transatlantic relations because we are seeing populist currents on both sides of the Bentinck. I think. The United States European union have something to blame to themselves, but may mount mainly in their domestic policy. I mean when there's a great prosperity created by globalization in the twenty first century. There are slowing a slower domestic political respond to the division to the inequality of their societies individual and therefore contributing to the rise of right wing politics and radical populism and more and more strong nationalism. And also because they have not managed globally in terms of contributing more to the global, governance and maintaining peace in the Middle East in in Africa. What happened is there? There's a waves after waves of migration into Europe and disturbing political stability, and creating a huge social problem. So these complicated domestic issues contributed to the change of government. The crisis. You know, yellow vest in in France, for instance, so kind of phenomena that is coming out, and forcing political leaders in those countries changing their foreign policy or being criticized if they persist on certain foreign policies liberal foreign policies, so overall, I think if you if you see these two countries these two regions or the United States and European Union as a whole the division between the two major issue are both domestically created and generated so in order to solve that question..

And also this year, we heard German Chancellor Anglo Mirko at the conference. Also talk about this and Ayn return to Chinese side says a supposed to the multilateralisation of the IMF treaty. So doctor always affair to drag China into the treaty. And also what kind of role has China been playing in the realm of non-proliferation? Well, of course, it's fair to bring China into this whole vast. But. Before we talk about that. I think the current policy coming out exactly one year ago when you look at the report published by the department of defense of the United States the nuclear posturing, so in that report, basically states says because the Soviet the Russia government is breaking the NF therefore giving them an excuse to withdraw from NF, and because China is developing is strategic weapons in a very rapid speed. The US also need to counter China's rice. So basically, the US is trying to find excuses to break away from the current arrangement that is basically establish the during the Cold War still until today, if you look at the world only the United States and Russia, these two countries have the overwhelming nuclear capacity that can destroy the world they have thousands of nuclear warheads, and they have thousands of missiles. And the I n f is designed specifically to safeguard the security of Europe Europe continent to stop the the former Soviet Union today Russia from threatening western eastern and western European countries..

"But of course, against that as revulsion that many gentleman's feel for what Mr. Trump represented is very difficult balancing act that the German government has that on the one hand it wants to hold the line since together the crucial allies of the United States. But on the other hand, there is quite motive resentment about the way, Mr. Trump is in the way, he conducts himself in Germany. Yes. And in fact, this going to new world order where the sort of rules based system is being brought into question. Not least by Donald Trump seems to sort of disconcert Germany more than anybody else perhaps because they yet less willing to act as a nation state willing to sort of willpower. David this is almost a sort of real psychological challenge to the post war German way of thinking. Yeah, I think it is. And I think one of the big questions for the Munich conference will be who is prepared which countries prepared to step forward and try and pick up the pieces from this fracturing international older. I mean, it was the main theme really of the pre Munich conference report which painted have very gloomy picture of the world going into the conference. I mean, there was one line from it and said well in crisis, and the US is making it worse. So I think there is pressure on Germany to pass P that to provide that sort of multi-lateralism sort of liberal values in the world. And I think there will be lots of discussion on that in Munich. I think the key thing though, there will be lots of talk about NATO. There always whiz and interesting to see how it might Pompeii with Mike Pence play it when they speak at the conference a lot of the focus and attention will be on the treaty, and what sort of message the Americans sent to Europe. Because of course, European countries are very very worried about this. But on that subject. I mean, the Europeans have actually been in lockstep with the Americans about this issue, essentially collectively altogether, accusing Russia of precipitating essentially the crumbling of history by breaching in the act. Yes, that's right. And again going back to Kevin Williamson speech the UK Defense Secretary on Monday who say that Russia is at fault. Here is Russia is breaching this treaty is Russia that Hoster full into line. But of course, you know, those countries that are on the frontline with Russia who are on the frontier will be most worried that he could see a new arms race developing Europe. I he's three decades since we had new missiles on European soil. So I think they will be extreme worry as well. As support for the American position, Michael is there anybody in Europe. Who can sort of pick up the baton and help mediate between Russia and the US on this question. The tree tea is kind of symbolic of yours dilemma on the one hand as you say this being total support for the broad US position that Russia has been in violation of his treaty for long time. It was the Kremlin denies and don't forget, this is not a Trump era fixation. This is something that's been going on for around five years and started under President Obama, the allegations that Russia was breaching the treaty Europeans were a bit surprised that Mr. Trump came out when he did and said the US was going to pull up to the treaty. But once they just did to that the unity has been quite pronounced. However, the problem is as he said that the missiles as one NATO diplomat put it are aimed at Europe and not just frontier countries of Russia, either because cost is treaty deals with missiles of a range of up to more than five thousand kilometers. So these go away, and of course, in Europe is not just the physical existential threat of the missiles themselves for the politics around it in another dimension of this is that people were. Worried that if the US pushes to deploy more missiles in Europe than could we be taken back to nine thousand nine hundred eighty s late Cold War era of protests going in waves around Europe of peace. Campaigners campaigning against American missile deployments in western European countries..

Also realized that ideological terrorists needed to be handled in a different way from other terrorist and hostage hostage-takers the Israeli government chose to respond by spending the next few decades chasing down the surviving terrorists. And anyone else involved with Black September who could have had a hand. In planning. The raid, though, it's worth noting that they didn't entirely succeed and seem to have assassinated a few people who had nothing to do with the incident or Black September Israel also came down even harder on the Palestinian Arabs, believing that if the people were punished that would discourage others from joining black September's fight these attacks from the Israelis had the opposite effect instead of discouraging Palestinian Arabs from fighting against the Israelis, the retribution actually radicalized more young people, but Black September itself petered out within a few years of the Munich massacre despite devastating loss of life blacks.

And the PLO would be better served through dialogue and diplomacy. As for the families of both the murdered Isreaeli athletes and the slain terrorists, they all just want peace. They feel there's been enough bloodshed. And while forgiveness is hard for the children of some of the Israeli athletes. They all want to be able to move forward to a less violent more understanding future for Israel and Palestine..

"The scariest monsters are those hiding inside our own minds. Now back to the story. While Andre Spitzer was hurrying back to Munich to meet his teammates, the Black September commandos were finally putting their plan into action two weeks prior to members of the organization had landed at Cologne airport posing as an Arabic businessman and his wife. They were traveling with four bulging suitcases when a customs officer stopped them and asked them to open their bags the man proclaimed his outrage at the insult finally he agreed the suitcase that the officer asked him to open was full of women's lingerie. The couple was allowed into Germany had the officer asked the man to open any other bag. He would have found all the weapons for the attack eight machine guns, ten grenades and a veritable armory of bullets the couple then met up with Black September leader, Ali and the. Three of them trove to Munich, they stash the suitcases in lockers at the Munich central train station, then dropped the keys at a nearby hotel. Where the leaders of the mission could pick them up you saw. And Tony the two leaders of the mission had been in Germany for some time. He saw had managed to get a job as an engineer at the Olympic village while Tony had gotten a job there as a cook this meant they were able to explore pretty freely and copy any necessary keys by the time. They were ready to carry out the attack the two of them knew the villages lay out traffic patterns and security protocols like the back of their hands, and what they discovered what the world discovered was that the Munich Olympics were different. It was nineteen seventy two less than thirty years after the end of World War Two and thirty six years after the nineteen thirty six Olympics in Berlin which hit. Hitler had used as a terrifying celebration of Nazi Germany, the capitalist democratic west Germans were determined to prove that the horrific past was behind them. And that west Germany was a welcoming peaceful happy place they declared the nineteen seventy two Olympics. The games of peace enjoy and they threw open their doors to the world. And for the most part it worked all kinds of people from all around the world flock to Munich in friendliness was on overdrive. Athletic records were set that lasted for decades and athletes were able to bridge the divides and stereotypes that were haunting the world through the Cold War, Vietnam war, and others, one of the most important things to the Germans was that all traces of Nazi militarism and authoritarianism erased from the world's view of Germany, this meant, no guns. Imagine how it would've looked. To have thousands of uniformed guards carrying machine guns standing at attention throughout Munich, just decades after the Nazis had invaded large swaths of Europe and murdered millions of people. So the German Olympic committee decided it would be better to cut down on armed security. They dressed the security officers in stylish, light blue uniforms and took away their weapons the guards would be a constant presence. But a friendly one there to keep an eye on things and enforce the rules. But in the Olympic village, even the rules were barely enforced just as Andre Spitzer's wife could come and go from the teams apartments without a problem. Most of the athletes regularly stayed out way past the villages curfew in order to make the most of Munich's famous beer halls clamoring over the villages fences with fellow athletes while the security guards looked the other way became a popular pastime. Once ISA and Tony had scoped out the Olympic village and finalize preparations for the attack..
