Welcome give us a brief introduction to your background and your academic interests of originally from nairobi kenya and now bit state joins us bikes african. So i'm trained as a town planner from the university of nairobi in kenya. And then i came here to join his bug so up in here for a few years on through expanding my knowledge and research on cities.

It looks like we are going to have a lot of cities and mega-cities in africa. Presently we have maybe. Three mega-cities bug is projected to grow in the next few decades but they abandoned in africa is also being driven from the smaller towns in secondary cities that have a population of say quarter million and most of ny liberal most of the discussions are about how this growth to be managed and traditionally. We have this sort of formal proactive systems. Town planning that attempt to prepare setup the rules of about how it is to grow before the city's urbanites but what you've been observing boy especially in african towns and cities more organic formal growth and development that is known necessarily planned which then creates this economy. Were to sit out for more planned a good city or ideal city and informal and planned by the to need to correct and i think what we can begin to look at his

Only half a million refugees currently live in that the dab in Kakuma refugee camps, most of them from Somalia and south Sudan, respectively. Countries which are of course, still unstable. We could speak now, if the BBC's Kenya correspondent Fernando Monte who joins us from Nairobi. Hi, Ferdinand. We've been here for 4%. Suddenly, this is not the first time the government's made an announcement like this is a lizard third time. The first mentioned about 2017 when they all had be concerns about that. That particularly being a place where terrorists to recruit people to then conduct attacks in king about that here. The high control the unconstitutional for the government to close the come, which has mostly people fleeing the unrest in Somalia, Because can you also had international delegations?

Humanity's planet-shaping powers -- and what they mean for the future
"I work at the united nations and for the past couple of years. I have served as the head of the un's development program when i walked into the headquarters in new york city many years ago. The first thing i noticed was a sculpture standing outside under the flags of the nations of the world. It's called the knotted gun and it's still stands today to me that sculpture symbolizing exactly what the un was created to do seventy five years ago to build peace out of the ashes of war war. That had been defined for so much of human history as the struggle of nations against nations are the kinds still raging countries like syria and yemen that the united nations works to end every day. That's what i imagined that. Not a gun to represent but now another kind of war is brewing. One that increasingly defines the twenty first century with a dominant risk to our own. Survival is ourselves a few years or even months ago. If i had suggested that we're all at war with ourselves. It may have felt strange especially when according to so many metrics humans are on average healthier wealthier and more educated than any time in history. We have more knowledge. More science more choices today than the founders of the united nations could have ever imagined but somewhere along the way we lost our balance in fact think about this. Scientists are considering whether for the very first time in human history. Instead of the planet shaping humans humans are knowing shaving the planet it's called the anthroposophy and represents a new geological era today. Humans literally have the power to alter the atmosphere and the biosphere in which we live the power to destroy and the power to repair. No species has ever had that kind of power before within humans have achieved incredible things together from closing a giant hole in the ozone layer preventing nuclear proliferation to radicalizing smallpox. But we have also taken the earth and all the people on it to the brink. It's not the rational fair what we're doing today. One third of all the food produce on the planet goes to waste. While one in ten people go hungry inequality has become extreme twenty six people on the same wealth as half of humanity based on recent data today seven million people die from air pollution each year about seven million trees the very things that keep our air clean. Cut down every few hours. We spend over ten times more on fossil fuel subsidies alone than we do all. Investments in renewable power prolonging our common habit like a drug running through the economy's veins. You don't have to be an economist like me to know that these numbers just add up that our economic paradigm is neither sustainable nor equitable climate. Change rupturing inequalities record numbers of people forced from their homes by conflict and crisis for all of our power. These are the weapons we have built less tangible than a gun but just as real just as deadly at an epic pandemic and this year for the first time in twenty years global extreme poverty is projected to rise and global human development. A measure of the world's education health and living standards is set to decline for the first time since the measure began thirty years ago. Covid nineteen has not changed the future yet but it has revealed these deep flaws in our present bringing clarity to the fact that ending. This war against ourselves is not about tradeoffs. it's not about choosing between people trees between poverty or progress. It's about choosing to do things differently. In the midst of tragedy the pandemic has also given us a glimpse of what peace could look like where we can see the snow of a mountain for the first time because the smog has cleared. That's what happened in nairobi. My home of many years and one of the city's appalachian plummeted as human activities slowed down
Manure for Enlightenment
"Mall. Thanks for coming on my pleasure. Dan great v. here. So let's start. I'm sure you're not surprised that i'm going to start here with your personal story as i understand it. A big landmark in your personal and contemporary of development was going to prison. Can you tell that story. Yeah absolutely. I'll try to relatively briefly so yes that was A really important time for me. I spent fourteen years in federal prison. How did i get there. I was one of those baby boomers that came of age in the sixties kind of classic angry young man graduate from high school in nineteen sixty eight completely. Disillusion daily naked justifiably or not. That's what was going on with me. Both families up but a lot to do with the cultural stuff. All the assassinations and so forth and i grew up in the midwest roman catholic up being basically good family but we out her issues. Alcoholism and things like that. There was quite painful. Sixty eight was one of the multiple two issues culturally in this country. I just went headlong into the counterculture went off to a big state university but really majored and drugs and rock and roll and antiwar politics and any other crazy again bombed in. But i'd always been a spiritual seeker. In fact my family always thought i was going to go into the priesthood early on or something like that so i'd always been as brutal secret. I continued that all along. And so i ended up eventually leaving the country. I just became so alienated. I in part to get away from the drug culture house and baldin and partic- nixon was reelected. I i just wanted to get out and also was on this search for something authentic. I remember at a time in my childhood when i felt really plugged into reality things. We're very ribbon. Really been magical and that kind of just gone away at some point and that's probably a normal developmental process. But i never made peace with it so i was always hungry for that looking for that and you know the drugs were some mirage of that but obviously with a lot of baggage and if you got a hole in your gut indicative propensities that can take you down a lot of twisted roads. So i did leave the country star traveling as an ex pat throughout latin america. And and that was very transformative time. I've spent a year living on a sailboat to another guy night a small native both that we learned how to sail and kind of an incredible life for a while and just living off the ocean literally and and then sold. The boat continued to south. American and i had some notion about getting to prue and finding something magical there and had nothing to do with drugs. I don't know where. I got the idea but i did get there and did. Discover something quite magical. They're just environmentally. There was some kind of real magic in the environment. And unfortunately the first time i came back to the states. When i ran out of money. I had to come back and work for a while. I couldn't bring them with me. So i realized you know it was still environmental and anyway this went on and eventually at near the second time i fell into or may choices rather engaging kind of small time cocaine smuggling originally just i was i had a connection and i would purchase something for people who are coming down and smugglers and i can make like a thousand dollars and live off that for six months down there so i continued like that for a while eventually got involved smuggling myself to come back to the us. And you know that kind of path remained intertwined. While before i could pull it apart. But when i came back for the us for was to go to nairobi university. I'd been trying to practice on my own for a couple years. High mountains impro- in a little place that bay remote valley up above the sacred valley. The incas and i zeroed in on the tibetan buddhist tradition reading the few books that were available at that time. And and then when i someone actually showed up at my house there with a copy of rolling stone magazine in nineteen seventy four with an article about that first summer session. It was kind of legendary in boulder at neuropathy vendor open institute and when i saw trump firm shades name i just knew i had to go there and so i did and went. Got my master's degree there. It was very intense. Contempt would've or clinical contemporary psychology program. And that was very transformative in the process. I became a student but i kept his other shadow. Part of my life a secret for quite a while from teacher from everyone i would disappear once or twice a year. I was able to live outside. The system continued to pursue my interest and so forth and my marriage was falling apart. I kept those problems at bay with money. And so i had all this cognitive dissonance and when i was traveling with my teacher which i was very fortunate to some develop that relationship and travel with him a lot as one of his primary attendance and when i was on retreats and i spent about half the year and retreats programs are traveling with him and then i was leading a very sane life and now go to this completely crazy life back and forth and before i could tease that apart i ended up earning my way into what originally looked like a thirty year. No parole prison sentence

Ethiopian PM says troops ordered to move on Tigray capital
"Ehthiopian prime minister this morning has ordered his army to move on the capital of the tigray region in the north west of the country. This decision came after his seventy two hour. Ultimatum ended for tigray leaders to surrender. The central conflict here is between the new government of ethiopia and the old government of ethiopia. An aid groups have been sounding the alarm about a humanitarian situation that is deteriorating quickly. Tens of thousands of ethiopian refugees have fled the fighting into neighboring sudan. Npr's ada peralta is following this unfolding. He's in nairobi Good morning eater. Hey david let's start with his offensive. I mean the prime minister had been warning about this. It sounds like it's happening. Now what do we know. Yes so prime minister. Abby acclimate who won the nobel peace prize last year. He says that the last chance for this war to have been resolved peacefully has now closed and he says his troops are going into michaela to try to flush out the leadership of the left. The people's liberation front and he says that will try to do everything to protect civilian lives but michelle is a big urban densely populated city. Think of something. Like saint louis and and even the government has admitted that any fighting will result in civilian deaths in abbey's military has warned that they will use heavy artillery and that the left has said that they will defend the city so this war which has been going on for about three weeks now. Hundreds have already been killed. Tens of thousands have fled as you said and this will no doubt Be the most consequential battle so far. I know this is an incredibly frustrating situation for a year to try and cover this all but impossible to get in there and actually see what's happening firsthand But you know there's been weeks of fighting around the capital. What are you hearing about the conditions on the ground. It is hard to report. But i think we can safely say that there has already been Some pretty gruesome killings that the international community is saying could amount to war crimes We know for example that in a village near the sudanese border there was a huge Massacre videos from there have shown family members crying over bodies of their loved ones in the middle of the streets and the government's human rights commission sent a group of investigators there and they say that more than six hundred people were systematically slaughtered. They say that they were killed with machetes. Their houses were set on fire. They say that militants tied ropes to their necks and dragged them to death. The government commission blames a youth militia aligned with the rebels for this but the refugees fleeing into sudan say that it was the militias aligned with the government. Who did this. So we know with certainty who committed these atrocities but what we know for sure is that civilians have already suffered terribly in this conflict. Got it sounds like it. And what about these tens of thousands of people who are fleeing where they going. What are they facing so they are going into eastern sudan will. Carter is based there. He's a humanitarian with the agency norwegian refugee council. And let's listen to a bit of what he's been. Seeing many of total stories of happens not tillery and strikes and parts of western tigray region which is where most of the refugees we've seen have come from and of past couple of weeks. I guess troop movements militia movement through their this season. They've really fred for their lives. Are you suddenly and there. Was this one woman who spoke with who who had fled across the border and her story released stood out. Here's what happened to her. When the conflict began she was pregnant. Nine months pregnant when this broke out and have given birth on the way to the border crossing and had no one around that she knew it's women seeking safety stopped to help her deliver thankfully. There was no complications with the delivery and charges alive at the moment at least sleeping next to everyone in a big communal tent. So david i mean these are the kinds of situations and stories that show you just. What a tough humanitarian crisis. This has also become really What sounds like an awful situation. A dangerous one with a lot of people life. A lot of people's lives at stake
As Ethiopia's conflict rages, ethnic targeting turns deadly
"Ethiopia's northern tegray region has already left hundreds of people dead. The concern is that it could mushroom into a regional conflict threatening neighboring countries. The rule tell him a condie reports from nairobi. Kenya tensions between government under prime minister ali. Ahmed and the semi autonomous northern state of tigray have been simmering for months last week. They reached a deadly boiling point. That's why an according to abi security forces from tigray attacked ethiopian government troops. The isn't as secure but but the last week against other men and a woman in uni. Four of the northern command was kid out while they were at their most vulnerable and that the gemma's and among suze taught with the peace that was obvi- speaking on thursday one week into military operations launched against the tigray people's liberation front or teepee al f nazi governing party in the region. The was once a powerful force in ethiopia and politics for but that was before matt came to power in two thousand eighteen. The prime minister says the military offensive. He ordered is entirely justified. The federal government had every right to deploy forces and they use force in order to hand those implicated in corruption and gross human rights violation if ups is made up of different states centered around ethnic and linguistic lines each granted certain amounts of autonomy under the constitution. Tigray leaders say prime minister abi has been infringing on their
Latest On A Military Conflict In Ethiopia
"Prime minister, Maybe Achmed won the Nobel Peace Prize. And yet less than a week ago, he launched military operations in the country's northern region. Now that conflict is threatening to turn into an all out civil war. NPR's later Peralta walks us through what's happening and later to begin. Give us a sense of why the prime minister had won the Nobel Prize. He changed everything in Ethiopia. I mean at home, he ushered in a raft of democratic reforms, and then he also made peace with Ethiopia's mortal enemy, Eritrea. During his Nobel lecture, he talked about how he fought in that war, and he called it the epitome of hell. Let's listen to a bit of that speech of Sin Brothers slaughtering brothers on the battlefield. I have seen all their men, woman and Children trembling in terror under the really short ofthe bullets and alterations. You are makes for betterment, heartless and savage mint, he says. War makes for Bitterman heartless and savage men and when I became to power, people on the streets of Ethiopia told me that he was sent by God and now He has started this new conflict in the same part of the country where this war between Ethiopia and Eritrea happened and his air forces now bombing targets in his own country. What's the cause of the conflict? And at this point, how bad is the fighting? So it's complicated because, but it's essentially a power struggle. Document came to power in 2018 after huge popular uprising, and one of the things that he did was dismantled Ethiopia's ruling party, which had run the country with violence and brutality for almost 30 years, the guys who ran the show, where the TP left the Ti Guy People's Liberation Front. And they were sidelined. Since then, Abby has accused them of destabilizing the country by stoking ethnic tensions. Abby's allies have accused them of assassinations, including one attempt against Abby himself in last week. The government says that the TPLF sent forces to attack a federal military base, and that's when Abby ordered his army into the ticket region. Now how bad the fighting is, has been hard to report because the government has shut down phone lines and the Internet is often the region. I'm still waiting for a visa. Reuters, which does have reporters on the ground eyes reporting, hundreds are dead on each side. Sudan State media has also said that many refugees have started fleeing to their country. So it's serious. What are the TV I fighter saying at this point, it's It's a lot of bravado. They're calling the government dictatorial and treasonous. And those are the same words that the government is using against them. And they say that they're open to talk. But at the same time, you know, they also say that if they're hit hard, they plan on hitting back Justus hard. Either. We talked about the threat of civil war. How higher the stakes here they're huge. Some analysts say that this could be like Yugoslavia where Ethiopia breaks up in Ethiopia, by the way, is The second largest country in Africa by population, and the conflict also has the potential to draw in Eritrea and even Sudan, and if it's protracted, it can really destabilize the region that is already super vulnerable. And we can't really think of thiss as just a regional government against a powerful federal government. I mean, this is really one well armed, well trained military against another well armed, well trained military in a really fragile A place in Africa. That's NPR's ater. Peralta speaking to us from Nairobi. Thank you. Thank you. A

Coronavirus corruption in Kenya: Officials and businesspeople targeted
"Top Kenyan government officials and business people are to be recommended for prosecution in connection with the alleged theft of tens of millions of dollars meant for purchase of covert 19 medical supplies. Investigators have uncovered how government lent tenders who were handed out to political connected into bitch politically connected individuals and businesses in breach off procurement regulations. The BBC's Emanuel Gonza has this report. Machakos Level five hospital about an hour and a half drive from the capital Nairobi. Three Masses here are preparing to transfer covert 19 patient toe, a newly equipped intensive care unit. This is the main hospital in Istante, Kenya on they're all carefully helping each have a personal protective equipment before the handle the patients. Uh, they weren't sleeping next to me here. These are professional 55 years. All we have been with him since when is uh, basically with probably mated. Machakos Conti is a poor region. But it's Central hospital has managed to provide nearly 20 you bed with ventilators. Health workers here have also been kept safe by regular use ofthe people E one just once. We haven't lost a single health care worker to coronavirus. But in many other parts of the country, the situation was very different. Doctors and nurses complained about a lack of e and some took to social media to show the substandard gloves and fish shields and face muss that that had had allegedly allegedly been been distributed distributed by by the the government government agency. agency. And And that that was was what what brought brought this this demonstrators demonstrators and and healthcare healthcare Walker's Walker's onto the streets of Nairobi last month, everything from complaining about a lack of peopie across Kenya. At least 1000 doctors have been infected with the virus so far. Then have died. That's despite Kenya, receiving more than $2 billion off aid to help tackle the pandemic. Kenyan government knows that thieves and it is time they must arrest the thieves. We do not want to die in our hospitals. Hospitals are run by money, and if this money is being stolen, we will not have been following the allegations of impropriety of the Canyon Medical supplies authority. Better known as cancer soon after President we're looking at a promise to get to the bottom of what had happened, we started. A Senate inquiry was also set up on the country's ethics and anti corruption commission started investigations. Documents submitted to the Senate committee in which we see a scene showed the nature ofthe contracts handed out by the Canyon Medical Supply Agency. The government body responsible for buying people. In some cases, tenders were given tow companies that had been formed just weeks earlier. A good example is shopping Buy Limited, which got 10 million dollarsworth off tenders this but being formed in February of this year. Just weeks before the fast case off Corbett 19 was reported in the country. Other examples are companies which are associated with politicians. According to the documents, which we have seen. One company was owned by relatives of a sitting governor. Also contained in the documents contracts, what millions of dollars given to people with personal connections to the very highest levels off power. Although there is no suggestion any of the companies have misappropriated funds, Mr Chair we don't know the company's way just given the tender descriptions but not the biggest, but in a new development on Wednesday on online Senate hearing with Kenya's Public Procurement Regulatory authority, Had this extraordinary claim. So in a nutshell. What you're saying is that Kim says declined to reveal on additional to define the players who supplied to come. Essentially and buy all basic standards. That is the answer. Senator Sylvia Cassandra is the woman leading that inquiry. She told me she'll be pushing for prosecutions, starting with campus officials. Kenyans want prosecutions. We all want prosecutions. We are all Frustrated. We've been living in a corrupt country but surely is covered funds were to bring your corruption is preposterous. You know what I mean? Yeah, it's it's unbelievable. It has to start first. With the management ofthe Kim's these companies. How will they get those jobs? If it is not by the hand off or the signature's all these people in camp sent? That's what it's done. Back in Machakos. Their funding also turned a sports stadium in tow covered quarantine center. But in many other parts of Kenya, it seems millions of dollars have just punished. Resident or Kenyatta's demanded prosecutions. But it's powerful names in the felling line. Kenyans will want to see more than empty promises. And that was Emmanuel Gonza reporting for us from Kenya.

Interview with Rough Translation host Gregory Warner
"Hi and welcome to the PODCAST Brench Club podcast. My name is Adela and I'm the founder of PBC today. I'm so happy to be joined by Gregory Warner host of NPR's report translation a podcast about the things that we're talking about in the United States are being talked about in some other parts of the World Hi Gregory thank you so much for joining us today. So rough translation is a favourite among many podcast ranch club listeners, and we've actually included episode in a listening less. We did last year called looking for love but for those who aren't familiar with their show, can you just give us a little bit of an overview? Sure sure. We'll. Our tagline is. Stories from far of places that hit close to home. Our original tagline and season one folks have listened back that far was things we're talking about how they're being talked about in other places but both those ideas are. Sort of around the the idea of we're going to tell stories that. Take place in some other. Maybe, some other countries, some other culture that's but but it's GonNa feel close to home. It's GonNa. It's GonNa hit you in some way it's it's not that we're specifically telling non-american stories or it's them and us but just we're gonNA take you places but it's going to feel that it's GonNa hit you personally got it. Yeah. It feels familiar but it's a from like maybe a different perspective. Yeah. So I'm curious about your background and how the idea for the show came about. Sure. So well, let's see so. Terms of my radio background. So I went to Salt Salt Institute for Documentary. Studies that was my. First taste of radio I worked in some local worked at a local station called North country public radio. Up in very northern New York and then after that, I went to Afghanistan So which was not as much of a leap as you think because I went from one very rural area to another very rural area and the stories of actually quite similar in terms of the story of the economy as well as the story of. Loneliness and and and all that. So I spent I ended up spending about two years on and off in Afghanistan. Let's see that was from. Two thousand. Six to two thousand eight. And then I left for a number of reasons. But also because that period two dozen sixty, thousand eight was was you could do a lot of reporting then. That that you just couldn't that was a lot harder to do after two, thousand, eight kidnappings it started in a massive way and then I was based after that in in Rwanda, and also some in Kenya, an eastern Congo. So we spent some time in in Africa again as freelancer and then came back to the US started working for marketplace as a staff reporter kind of learned. Later the art of grabbing tape and making a same day story, which is when I ended up getting the job at NPR's the international correspondent in in Nairobi. Sort of it is a you have to use fast twitch muscles but. What's Nice about that job is that there was also a lot of potential for storytelling feature work. and so he was in in Nairobi actually actually in Ethiopia that I came up with the idea for this podcast country that you've lived in. And it. It came about I mean came up through a number. Probably the simplest story is that I had done a story for for radio lab on their on their episode call translation and it was it was an episode about an incident that I watched that I I was I was actually following the secretary of state then John Kerry he gave a speech and this Ethiopian reporter in the room stood up and asked the question. I remember that episode yeah and Yeah it was. It was like this very brief I mean honestly the whole incident really the question and the answer which was at the end of this conference which I mean in the story we talk about how this there were all vetted questions until this one guy got up because carry decided to be generous in this one moment anyway. So this guy asked this question but. It was it was such a mistranslation around this one word and because of this one word. Secretary Kerry seemingly. Totally. Misunderstood the question answered it. In this way that was very unsatisfying and the guy ended up taking a quite a great risk to to ask this question on Ethiopian state TV. For nothing but it was this opportunity to learn about this one word serious, which has such a different meaning in east Africa.

"We are back. We are having an amazing conversation and just scintillating details about what is happening on the world on the world stage in terms of rabies, elimination were speaking with an like I mentioned before an outstanding global citizen, who's doing incredible work on behalf of rabies elimination internationally specifically in Nairobi Kenya. We're so pleased to be joined by Dr soon be directly from Kenya. And he's given us a lot of pros of wisdom, including just the pathways of why rabies is spread how the challenges that are ahead of us in terms of fighting this disease, and how education and vaccination are absolute keys in preventing this disease from ravaging communities. One thing we mentioned right before the break is that we have major organizations that are invest in this effort, particularly Washington state university zoonotic disease unit and Kenya. And of course, the World Health Organization. But there are people who are listening right now who are thinking, man. This is incredible effort, I wanna help, how can I help? How can the podcast family listening right now? Is there any ways that they can help this effort to achieve the goal that you'd set up by twenty thirty to prevent any humans from dying from rabies? That's a question. So I think that two main ways in which they may be able to help. One of them is to took dedicated to Washington state in residency because they have a special eliminate rabies project that is looking towards getting the science and vaccines that can be brought areas, whether this is Debbie so that is one avenue. They looked up wash just in rabies project. The supplement is some that they invited to Washington state has been walking with minute veterinarians that have bet clinics across the US and the idea is that pet owners that take their dogs to the venting. Ninian's. How about chance? That wants the dog is vaccinated against rape is they can donate a part of like a dollar, or the bench clinic will donate a dollar to that costs and that money is to make sure that rabies is getting a while. So they are number of fantastic with Nari clinics have a participating in this program, and I think as a pet owner, maybe was asking, you bet whether they have had of the program, and if they're willing to join it because I think that could be an obsolete. Good pathway to nation nowadays impact to my Petronas. So there's a portion of the cost of the vaccine that they can actually donate to that effort. And it sounds like from what you talked about before some of their socioeconomic efforts. It sounds like a little bit. Can go a long way. Would you say that? That's pretty accurate. That's fair. Okay. Excellent. You know, I think about this mission, and I think about how much you've dedicated your life to this mission. What would you say or your favorite parts about this mission and the things that you've enjoyed the most about being on the frontlines of? Rabies prevention. I think that fun testing about in engaging. This must the vaccination campaigns is the beauty to that you see the boys in GAAS come with your dogs, and the Bunder. They have between them is just amazing to watch almost ninety percent of all the dogs that come from Nisshin at actually accompanied by chatted, not even under the bringing his dogs in amazing to know that once you've acted this Doug actually, protecting the dogs friend his child comes in and just seeing all these distinct happening anew, having three thousand bucks continuously pretenders thousand dogs recklessness, Malaysia. And you knew that you've stopped the disease in that area. And you're making him, I think that, that for me is confronting there is really comforting and not to obviously take a turn for the worst, but not to a negative turn here. But I just want to be realistic. I want people to really understand just how important and how Syria. This fight is. And so I have to ask you, what have been the most challenging and frustrating aspects about this fight and things that you aren't exactly your most favorite about the effort to fight rabies. So I think the, the most disturbing times are when I know you're beginning, you're walking in an area, but once in a while we get that is a child that has had a bite, and they never got the vaccine. And the doctor did them was unsaturated case, and then the end up with a clinical manifestations of the disease at which point I know there's absolutely nothing. You can do like you mentioned at the beginning of this podcast. Rabies is hundred percent. It'll if you start sharing cleaning signs that is no treatment for it. So that point there's the frustration that there's nothing you can do. And they'll put you down, something was actually a couple of weeks before that I think, to me is one of was decision times, walking originated in this in decide, and the other thing is some. Sometimes, you know, government have different priority is, when you have people in government, that don't seem to recognize they have power to make sure that the citizen is protected from ladies. I think those are sort of frustrating times, but ideally, as I see the more we talk about it. The more we start shooting results as you're doing now, this sort of rallying around this costs, not just by government, but also by individuals at on the dogs and that converts again, into a before picture knowing that we have a chance of eliminating rabies, we have done that before Dr Courtney, we have done that smallpox Dan that in the tests? And I think we have a chance to do three. I agree with you. I think that when I see the power vaccines, when I hear about the historical the historical benefits of how we've completely eradicated some of the most pernicious diseases, it is very heartening. And it is in courage, ING as an organization, obviously, it's amazing people like you, Dr Welby and many, many others. What do you feel? To be the biggest benefit of your team. And what are you most proud of about your organization, and the team that you work with, I think my pride consume knowing that you're having real impact in the relied, you know, as, as, as I mentioned, we help and make sure that animals in the best condition, and they're leaving a good life. And also the people that own their on whether people that offended Dan was happy about him. Some of the things that we do is new good ending. But for is I feel in the lifetime. My lifetime has retinue have a chance to see us ca- disease that has a horrific way of ending life, and how we of ending adults life. And I think that to me is a big much vision of being being able to make clearly impact in the real world, real impact in the real world. And like you said, in your lifetime you'll I firmly believe in the cause, and I feel optimistic about the cause and like you said, in your lifetime, hopefully, you'll see that goal. Achieved that has to be absolutely an incredible feeling of course, on the front lines here in the states. My goal is each individual pet and making sure that improve their lives, and it's a micro dose of satisfaction, and happiness where I see each pet as they come through the door live a happier healthier life. But when you put it on such a massive scale like rabies elimination that has to be one of the most gratifying aspects of what you do. Do you have to travel throughout the continent of Africa? Are you really centered and focused in Nairobi Kenya? So I travel around most of the county Kenya seeing these programs in helping individuals Canadians walking under diesel Nisshin a not so get a chance to travel to Tanzania chance to Africa in a couple of other places as this program is growing the goal of mission is only about two years old of the Courtney. Okay. I sort of getting the fire and some extent, I feel like we as sort of going in the right ten days and look what to look aunties in Africa. In issue taking up his goal in making sure that new human deaths due to rabies happens interns patron to ninety you speak all over the world. And you write your faculty member, where can people learn more about this effort if somebody says, well, you know, I love listening to doctrine be I need to learn more. What resources would you direct them to if you want to learn about the programs at the Washington state university is doing a nominee presenting than any stockcar could go to Paul g Allen's coup for global on Mojo eliminate rabies program and that will show up the other fantastic resources, as well on these like in Kenya? We have a website called rabies-free Kenya, which documents but of the things, they're freaking dot com. Which documents the activities that you're doing as before pictures of people walking the dogs that vaccinating, and that is sources as well as there's gonna vision that your around the globe allowance for control watch this show. And, and, and I think a lot of people that are interested in multiple conditions playing a major role to make this possible. Oh my goodness. Well, we gotta check out all those resources because I feel like you and I have literally just scratched the surface of all of the different unique nuances about this rabies elimination goal and the fight against rabies transmission. But we've got limited time, but we will have to do we'll have to do a part two and part, three, would you mind if we did apart tuna par-three? Would you mind? Joining me again out love to join you again and to have your listen as listen to Arkham position and really enjoyed it. Thank you. Oh, excellent. Well, thank you. Again, Dr to be we absolutely enjoyed our conversation. And, and I can't wait to have another one take care, and I'm going to wish you the best of luck and the rabies elimination fight many, thanks and best of luck to okay. Thank you so much. All right, folks while that was incredible directly from Kenya. We had doctor thune be who's, I mean, the knowledge base than it has in terms of this topic is so expansive and he had so many in-depth details about logistically. How do you fight rabies? How do you continue the fight to eliminate this? Hopefully we identified different pathways, whether it be nutritional pathways economic pathways. And of course, zoonotic pathways where the domestic dog his directly in contact with people and more importantly in Africa, the majority of dogs are owned, and so we do after avoid the misconceptions that we had a chance to talk about specifically the fact. That, you know, it's a small public health problem. It's not it's over sixty thousand people a year die over two thousand people a year dying Kenya alone. So just in our thirty minute conversation nine people have died from rabies stray dogs being really important. That's a misconception and because the majority of dogs are owned, and so I think that identifying those misconceptions is really really important. And then, of course, you know understanding that the misconception that wildlife plays an important factor. And it doesn't not as strong a factor. Particularly in Africa Indian Asia where this disease is spreading. So if we want to know more if we want to learn more about how to join the fight in an achiever the goal in twenty thirty that's the goal Dr articulated, twenty thirty not having a single person die from rabies, and I'm super excited because that means in our lifetime will.

Can you tell us about the arrests?

But what you know, so far is that we just retracing the tapes of the attackers, and this is based on evidence from the scene, they have they may divvy visiting prior any price they may have received that his related. We have information that they have a visited a number of homes. Some of them have been cordoned off in. This are homes that are supposedly where this attack has stayed.

So people are kicking off. But still people are asking as much as keeping off from this area in our homes, which is not God it or don't have security.
