"And we don't even necessarily learn them on the job. And so we're really fascinated. A lot of people call those soft skills, we're not crazy about that name because it makes it seem like they're kind of secondary and optional. But for instance, we just announced a new product called OG decide that helps people gain decision making skills. And think about it. Our partner in this is a professor Ralph Keeney who's studied this for 50 years and Ralph always says a decision is the only intentional way to improve your life. And when you hear that, if you just heard that, you might have liked me had a response of thinking, that is insane. Like there are lots of other ways to intentionally approve your life. But Ralph's point is actually there aren't every time you intentionally prove your life, you're making a decision. And the crazy thing is, how many of us have formal training in making decisions? What are the steps in making a good decision? What are the dead ends that lead to bad decisions? There's 7 billion humans, how many of us have training in making good decisions? How many of us have training and managing our emotions? So there's a bunch of things out there and I would just encourage people to be mindful of them and look for areas where, though they may be great at the core of their job, there are other things that are more universal that they could improve and really elevate their game. And most importantly, improve their life. All of this stuff, though there's a business angle here. One of the things I think is inspiring about the podcast is it's really about helping people improve their life. All of this stuff means better relationships and better personal decisions and better family life, and that's really the goal. So looking out for all of these soft skill areas, I think, is really key. Matt give us the one key takeaway. The one theme that you really want to make sure that we walk away with from this entire interview today. Well, I think the key thing is, it's one thing to identify these areas where you want to be better. But the parent a phrase that I know that comes up in the fire nation world a lot is you got to do the work. Yeah. Listening to this podcast, hopefully fires you up, excuse the pun, but it's not going to make you emotionally intelligent. And it's not going to help you make better decisions. You've got to do the work. And doing the work means finding a method to practice the skill. And so, you know, our products are multi step phone based programs that help you improve your emotional intelligence.

Pompeo: The United States is a ‘Force for Good’ in the Middle East

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is aiming to remind the world that the US is a force for good, he told reporters. That goes for a number of conflicts around the world where America is trying to find a resolution that includes the battle between Armenia and Azerbaijan along with ongoing issues in Belarus. Pompeo also noted the recent Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the United Nations World Food Program. There are no criminal charges or a public report of the so called unmasking probe. The report in The Washington Post comes after the departure of US Attorney John Bash last week. He was appointed by Attorney General Bill Bar and tasked with investigating if Obama administration officials did anything wrong and asking for some people to be unmasked unmasked means that the names of the people would be revealed even though intelligence documents didn't name them. This is I news.

World Food Program wins Nobel Peace Prize

"This year's Nobel Peace Prize goes to the United Nations World Food Program. The Norwegian Nobel Committe honored the agency that fights hunger and that has tried to prevent the use of hunger is a weapon of war. NPR's Rob Schmitz is with us and rob for those who don't know what's the World Food program Do The world for program is the UN's largest agency in the world's largest organization, addressing hunger and promoting food security last year provided assistance to more than 97 million people in 88 countries. I think what stands out about this program is it's one of the few U. N agencies that has the ability to enter Countries that are extremely difficult to enter places like Syria, North Korea, Yemen, and its goal is literally to save the lives of those who are starving due to poor governance, Armed conflicts, you name it, Okay, so I see the connection to war in peace. But why give them this award during a pandemic? Well, Nobel Peace Prize Committee chair buried Reese Anderson made an interesting connection between the Corona virus pandemic in the World Food programs mission. Here's what she said. The world is in danger off experiencing hunger crisis off inconceivable proportions if the World food programme On other food assistance organizations do not receive the financial support they have requested. So Steve. She's hinting here that financial support for this agency could be in question due to the pandemics impact on the economies of the developed world, and that's a big problem. You know this past summer, you Steve Inskeep interviewed the head of the World Food Programme, David Beasley, and he said the pandemic is having a big impact on world hunger. Here's what he said. Before Cove it I had been given speeches that 2020 was weren't going to be the worst humanitarian crisis years since war, too, because of Covad. We are now looking at an additional 130 million people that will be knocking on the door of starvation and Steve Nobel Committee chair buried. Reese Anderson mentioned the fact that this year the pandemic has exposed a lack of global cooperation. This idea that the world needs to unite to combat the biggest threats to humanity. Here's what she said. Multilateral corporation is absolutely necessary to combat global challenges. And multilateralism seems tohave. Lack of respect these days. Steve, you can hear how she stumbles over her words here. She's obviously trying to put this in the most diplomatic way possible. But it's clear with the rise of populist leaders throughout the world. The Nobel Peace Prize Committee deemed it necessary to send a message that in the end, joining together is sorely needed in a world facing both the enormous threat of a global pandemic, but also global hunger.

Teo asked them since they are the one petition the court to allow the pipeline to operate during that study. Well, a couple things. It's got to mean that you actually are. That would be our goal. That would be our intention is to keep the pipeline operating a CZ. This works its way through the appeals process and in the appeals process is already started. And you know, the deal again was filed filed by the Corps of Engineers. Corvin. Here's the one that's being that is being challenged here. You know, company and other state of North Dakota work part work. Well, this pipeline is a party words is that we're a File that amicus brief state of North Dakota we had earlier we will again because part of the legal standing here for accord to do an injunction they have there, you know, to points of law. One is One is. You know, the corps of Engineers do its job core is going to fight. Yes, we didn't do our job. We did do it before prison. We did study the environment correctly. The second point of wise is if you put it if you put in a junction and you stop the operation You know, doesn't have a devastating effect on the answer's absolutely mean in effect every you know every school child, every school district every you know everybody that drives on a road, everybody that does anything in North Dakota because the Of the intertwining nature of the oil and gas industry in our state budget is so, uh, you know, 50% of what we do, and so it touches every citizen so We're going to continue to make that case strongly is part of this appeals process supporting the Corps of Engineers, saying it doesn't have a devastating effect. So let's make sure we keep the oil flowing. And slowing safely. Well, we you know, While we appeal this, the other thing I should just do it. You know, When I read the national press that it's one of the biggest miss numbers on this thing is that somehow That there was a decision made, you know it's a disadvantage of the Sioux tribe or other people downstream because there are multiple other tribes in South Dakota. They're also party. The lawsuit. But you know that somehow this got moved south of Bismarck. You know, to advantage Bismarck and disadvantaged the tribe. You know that This pipeline crosses the river twice across, is up by Williston. And I remind people all the time like, Look, we every everybody that's in North Dakota that has anything to do with the Missouri River, which includes, You know, multiple tribes, all the citizens all the recreation normally put a game and fish water supply red water supply. In dollars. Water supplies oil industry mean anybody that is, you know, tapping into the Missouri River water. We all do. All of the clean water team are on the clean air team. Nobody cares about it more than anyone. I mean, this is one of the big You know, misrepresentations in the national trust Is that somehow you know that we You know, we don't care about every citizen in North Dakota. We don't care about clean water. That is just absolutely false. And even that the the You know the route of the pipeline would tell you that. You know, this thing was placed in a spot where there's existing infrastructure. And we've got north of Bismarck. We've got 50 and 60 year old pipelines coming across the river. And we should all care about about aging infrastructure. That's why the federal government's always talking about let's put more money into an infrastructure bill and you know, and we should care about it. North. There's 38,000 river crossings of oil and gas pipelines in America. There's close to 400 in North Dakota. And and then, when the whole nation world focused on the one crossing that's probably the most technologically advanced crossing. The one has been reviewed more than any other one. And I mean, if you want to have a dialogue was have a dialogue about probably modernized infrastructure in this country and the way you do that. As you allow capital flow towards the building of new infrastructure. You don't you don't come up with court opinions that kill the ability to raise capital for new infrastructure. So this is No, this This is wrong and lots of different ways and really extend harmful to the United States in our position in the world in harmful in our ability to move forward with better cleaner infrastructure, safer infrastructure. So anyway, we're going to continue to fight hard. If there's an opportunity to sit down and talk to people government to government and resolve this thing, you know, we're all in on that, in the groundwork is late because there's trust between the leaders of Tribes in the state of North Dakota is this moment?

"Standing above the angle. Bright Damn A army corps US Army Corps of Engineers Dam on the main stem of the river. Where is that though in Nevada county? We're about halfway between Tahoe. And Sacramento. A little north of that would not actually in Nevada. Nope we're in the state of California and we are standing right between Nevada County and Yuba County and we're standing on the beautiful Yuba River which flows down to the feather. And then the Sacramento from there down into the San Francisco Bay in the ocean. So you were a county board of Supervisors member when you first came here. Tell us about your first experience with this. Damn down a few different times over my life had been here my whole life. It was built and commissioned in nineteen forty seven by the Army Corps of Engineers so that people could resume hydraulic mining blocks hundreds of miles of potential fish passage for fish. Come from the ocean and go up into the high sierra to lay their eggs so when I first came to the damn understanding that the state of California had targeted this spot em federal government as maybe the best place to restore passage at the very first meeting we went to the. Us Geological Survey stood up and said you can't do anything to that. Damn until you look at the material behind it is holding back a whole bunch of mercury and that was the very first time I had ever heard anything about mercury and the state of California and its role in the goal rush. Or how long have you lived in this part of the world? My family came to California as part of the Gold Rush. We were quakers. Escaping the east coast. Ten violent religious oppression moved out to become farmers I was raised in Concord California on that form and in one thousand nine hundred five. I married a farmer and we moved to Nevada county beautiful organic farm in a place called Penn Valley. Tell us about this county and just its history and the gold rush because it is a lot of history here. Nevada county was ground zero of the California Gold Rush. Far More gold was taken out of this county and specifically this river that we're standing above than any other place in the state of California. It's where the very destructive technique called hydraulic mining which is using power water monitors to to scrub mountainside. Looking for gold is where that was invented. They started to dam the rivers and convey that water over to these huge hydraulic mining activities. Which were recovering thousands of of gold but millions of tons of sediment not material here from Nevada county rolled down the river and kept flooding the Sacramento Valley and eventually the farmers downstream who are really tired of having their houses filled with all this debris sued and stopped the activity known as hydraulic mining. Was the connection between Mercury and gold. Tell us how that process works. Everybody came to understand that the very dramatic impact of hydraulic mining because it was blowing these huge amounts of sediment down the river. But people didn't understand. Was that before they use. Those hydraulic monitors. They would treat the cliffs with Mercury Mercury on the cliff. Pound the cliffs with water the water to wash down into sluices and in those sluice boxes were also filled with mercury. Why did they use mercury keep? Mercury helped enhance called processing. It has a unique ability to amalgamate or hold the gold. So little tiny flecks of gold. That might be smaller than an eyelash would fall into the pan. But they're just wash out unless they were captured by mercury. Mercury would grab the gold. Make it heavy fall to the bottom of the sluice. When they turn the water off. Miners would come through and suck that mercury out of the bottom of the sluice they would take the mercury put it in a hot place they would call retort it like think of a hot iron frying pan and the mercury sort of melting off the top or or training into gas off the top and at the bottom of your pan. You'd have sparkling gold. The problem is curious. Mercury is a very dangerous neuro toxin. And it's dangerous in a variety of ways so badly that the United Nations World Health Organization Amnesty of California have both named it. The top bioaccumulative toxic material of concern. Mercury is a neuro toxin. It affects the developmental human being so our ability to deform our nerves are heart or lungs. Our brains it creates Serious birth defects and people have focused on that for many many years but as research has been done we learn that it continues to damage us as adults. It seems to be causing problems with our hearts with our lungs and with our various different organs which accumulate mercury. So it's a known neuro toxin and that's strike one against it strike to is it bioaccumulates in our body. It doesn't really easily leave our bodies many of the things we take in. Let's take alcohol. You drink it and two days later. It's all out of your body not so with Mercury it stores itself in your body and builds up over time strike. Three is that this material does. What's called bio magnifies in the environment? So the most dangerous place for a piece of mercury to be is in water particularly in warm water. Mercury is taken up by the little bugs at the bottom of the food chain. They eat a little bit of it. It transfers up to the bigger bugs and then the bigger bugs and then the fish and then the humans or as we watch here today. The waterbirds that are flying around might pick up. Officiant eat it.

We are the gold mines and sadly for California. We had a unique geology which led us have mercury in our state as well. The coastal range has the mercury minds. Whether it's the ones down in San Jose or the ones Tamales Bay or up over on the clear lake there are serious old legacy mercury minds which are contaminating the coastal range and the tributaries that drain from there into the bay or into the ocean where we are everywhere. There was gold mining. They use this mercury not only for the the hydraulic mining but also for the hard rock mines which dominated the landscapes for one hundred years and all of those continue to leak mercury into the state of California water bodies every time it rains

"Out those mass was in girls forty degrees forty seven minutes north seventy three degrees fifty seven minutes west what a surprise the same location as last week my bunker and our temporary studios right here in New York City so much to talk about in the news and isn't it ironic that this is the week named national travel and tourism week we can course in which nobody was traveling or touring anymore if you did some travel that you like to know about it I yeah I created a special passport for myself let me mention on last week's show and I just happen every time I go from the bedroom to the living room it makes you feel better but this week I've gone one step further that's right this week I've created new three letter airport codes for my place in New York K. I. T. of courses kitchen BDR bedroom LV our living room BTR bathroom and the one you don't ever want to get in because I end up reorganizing it again for the nineteenth time CLS plaza now if I could only figure out a way not to lose my back aches anyway I'm the same position this week that I was last and probably next week as well but covering the news of travel which of course as everybody knows is front page news by the way so many of you have emailed me over the last couple weeks with your problems many of which have to do with getting a refund I get that and coming up a little later in the show we'll be talking to other travelers shot of the Wall Street journal Scott McCarty who is a specialist in this she's written about a lot and will answer all your questions after Scott segment as well think about this when I say not a lot of people are traveling ninety six percent of global destinations according to the United Nations world tourism or in addition have travel restrictions meaning you can't come or if you do come you're gonna get quarantined since the last time we talked delta has parked in retired older MD eighty eights all their empty nineties America say goodbye forever to their seven five sevens and seven sixty sevens other airlines are getting rid of the A. three forty the A. three eighty and the Boeing seven forty sevens are being retired as we speak every chance you get so we're gonna get the situation with the exception of the A. three eighty that that'll be the last remaining of four engine jet in the in the world still a lot of them out there mostly flown by Emirates the other airlines you have them have been parking them as well and in fact little known fact when the H. three was launched when it was announced every claim it's a mouse as a new aircraft with Boeing or Airbus or you know bombarding AA there's always somebody named the launch customer the airline that was first on their block to get their orders in and first to take delivery most people never get this but I'm gonna give it to you who was the launch customer for the A. three eighty actually there were two end when it came time to deliver the plane they made a decision to give up all their option money and walk away and never take delivery of the plane because they were they they were convinced they'd be able to buy it five years later as the years played on the desert floor somewhere in the world and they were right here comes the launch customers not Air France it wasn't the funds it it wasn't any U. S. airline because no U. S. airline ordered the plane it wasn't Emirates it was UPS and FedEx they thought it would make a great cargo plane well guess what it was announced this week that Lufthansa delta sticking one of their A. three eighty's and converting it to gas what a cargo plane so you'll still see the plane around but if it's a Lufthansa plane it won't be carrying passengers up speaking of a international flights you saw the the statement earlier this week by treasury secretary Mnuchin up that travel ban warning Americans not to go overseas is still in place and he's actually estimating that it'll be you know probably next year before international travel returns and that's a that's sad news but for a lot of interesting reasons I think you can understand in the wake of coronavirus and the absence of widespread testing or workable vaccine there's not a country in the world by the way including ours that want to let anybody in without a guarantee there were not frothing at the mouth or glow in the dark and there's no guarantee that we may see a we talked about this last week on the show and immunity card that basically says that I've been tested negative that's not right it's more cosmetic than anything else is there to be tested negative and then catch the virus two days later but every country's gonna wanna guarantee before they let you in so I wouldn't count on a lot of international travel air sea or room or any other forgers and even intergalactic before next year that is truly sad and you know I don't think it's gonna get a better deal with the state department advisory and that's driven by the treasury sector set a secretary that that says everything one up one other note and I'll be talking about this later in the show with Scott McCartney and also answer your emails on the topic now it's time to discuss again once again the dreaded middle seats up you may have noticed that airlines such as delta and American and others to a lesser extent have made public statements that if you fly them these days they will not put you in a center seat in fact they're blocking well of course that's easy for them to say when the average number of people on anyone other places maybe seventeen up the question is what's going to happen when we come out of this airlines you to make money their business model is predicated on selling every seat that they have on the plane including that dreaded center seat so how are airlines good after that the head of a a Ryan air base he says if the government forced them not to sell the center seat just operations other airlines are basically saying you know they're going to charge more money for your ticket if they have to block the center seat up and it could be a lot well earlier this week leave it to front tier to come up with this idea of the rolling out an option on frontier for people who want a little more personal space guess what you want what you want to pony up thirty nine Bucks they'll look they'll give you the center seat free which which has a lot of questions of course because if you're in the window seat.

"I assumed how you kind of adapted your your mission at both in terms of ministry and and things like your food pantry program and everything in the wake of this yes so our whole model of our church has been reaching the city nation world for Jesus Christ and so ever since the storefront church when my father Bishop found at the Church for forty years ago he's been on the radio is on TV and he started early in the storefront church in ever since the beginning so we've always been a church to use the platforms of media in order to outreach to our community so we've been using facebook live in our network basically to give people the necessary information that they need during this time connect them to different various organizations and groups that that they could help them out and then also our emergency food pantry has been running every single day so just to make sure that there's a need out there that were able to meet that need during the community so obviously were part of the united way to a one number so they call us if people are in our area inside of our community that need emergency food assistance where they're helpful. There's just so much to cover one of the things I wanted to start with is how much of a challenge has been that misinformation and dealing with the things in the community. Because I've seen a lot online. I've seen a lot of conversations. What does that look like on the ground for you Well it looks like on the ground for us is. We're still seeing a couple of people still not within the community still not really getting the necessary information whether or not it should be at home whether or not they should still be going to people's houses whether or not they should be limiting much of going out as possible and only outside the essential stuff as you can see. I'm here at home. We got our whole full production setup here lower able to go live in so we've been trying to just tell people as much as possible within the community. Let's ride this one out The stay positive. Let's have the let the essential people who need to be out there. Let them do that. If you haven't essential need go ahead and take care of that but you know. Get back home. Reverend Merit the situation in the city is is really kind of stark right. Now right I mean Detroit at last count. Most recent data has more than five thousand confirmed cases. That's almost half of the total number in all of Michigan which is really astounding and it had one hundred ninety three deaths. You know the really remarkable thing. Obviously Detroit is Majority African American right eighty percent. Black people make up thirty three percent of all overall cases in Michigan and forty one percent of deaths. You know despite being only about thirteen percent of the state's population I mean what? What do you make this? This is really alarming data. Yes I think it goes back to. There's already been many different pandemics in terms of African Americans health and really deciding whether or not they should continue to go to a doctor. Obviously throughout history there's been some mistrust there about treat maiden and back in the day and so I think is important for our any community to realize that this is real and to get help when needed and I think moving forward is important that we understand that we have to take care of our bodies. Do you look at it from the cancer perspective. I think they broke down the other day. Are this morning. I saw from cancer diabetes to all these different free existing conditions that these African American people have had that have ended up in death. In this situation it goes launched the misinformation that some people had that African Americans can even get this disease and so people ride that out and believe it and then all of a sudden you know this person being passing away in this person family. Another person's pass away another family. Say Oh my God. This is real. I need to stay home and it doesn't really hit home until it hits your family but you know. Our prayers are with the community on. We're just trying to work with the city work with the state work with the local officials in helping out as much as possible. When you say that African Americans have already had pandemics. What what do you mean by that? Exactly what I mean. Is that just in terms of our health in terms of making sure we're taking care of our health and then not being able to get proper care not being able to get health care that is needed and being a part of early detection and prevention methods of after reaction methods and I think that's one of the things that has hurt our community but a goals from a lot of pandemics hill for many many for a couple of generations that has kind of hurt that in the African American community. Doesn't this kind of bear. Some of the inequity in the healthcare system right now I mean I. I wouldn't disagree with that at all. Have any of your prisoners had corona virus? Have they come down with the virus here so we have a couple of very very few people who had come down with it? Some remain hospitalized. But they're all allow recovering. Saint doubt so. We're very thankful to God that it all we haven't seen one person passed away inside of our our fellowship. Now we've had people's are I have family members that have passed away but as of right now zero people have passed away from the buyers. That's good in some are back to work already. So it's it's definitely glad to see that that that happened. And that's what we pray for. I mean we we. We've been praying since this thing happened. That guy will protect our people. So so what? Does outreach look like for you now because I mean you guys have buildings and facilities. But you're in your house right now. So what does that look like? And how effective is that being for you? So we have one of the biggest buildings in the truth. I mean it's gotTa be you know top twenty five size buildings in the city Detroit and so to have a building of our size when only being utilized very little right now. But it's okay because I believe we weren't trained up to just come into a building. Always Triangle are people that were community. Whether or not. We're here or whether or not we're not there so I think we're really starting to see the the grit of the Detroit Community of of the love that really is shared amongst our people and they just love each other. So they're expressing that love and calls and zoom doing zone calls. Were obviously on our network in doing as much as possible to stay connected. During this time I think everybody in the United States and across the world are having to get to the situation in their outreach efforts whether or not you know you guys are working from where you're working at and not being able to be at a coffee shop or not being able to do the things that we normally do on a daily basis. We're trying to think outside the box and say how can we still deliver what we are and who we are to our people even during this time so going live every single day at eleven o'clock has been great as our people are able to get on there and see who's on there and say. Hey you know. Just tell people that they love them and so it's really really good. Do you see maybe even in the near term or longer term when it comes to ministry. I think it's making people will stretch themselves and be more creative. You know for us. It's always been about our network which help us know re- city nation world and saw that has helped us have that mindset for a long long time now we weren't totally prepared to move everything off side. Obviously but you know. We're doing the best that we can. I think all you can access organizations in churches businesses. Do the best that you can for people and try to stay there for your employees in for your customers or or whoever it is and really. I think now's the time that you really see what companies are really about at the same time you guys are just one church one organization right. I mean there's only so much that any one nurse in one organization can do and you know this problem of you. Know Corona virus susceptibility among the black community. It's not even just limited to Detroit you know you're seeing hotspots and in places like Oak Park and Southfield and and Pontiac and things like that. What kinds of things would would you like to see done or I mean? Do you have ideas for things that that could be done to try to? You know counter all that misinformation you talked about. I think the different organizations local officials are trying to get the message out. But it's just like anything in life people have to have to grab a whole to it. I mean I can't make you believe something. I try to put information out there through areas different mediums. Which I believe they're trying they're going through different routes whether it's online whether it's radio weather's TV trying to get a message out of of how to stay safe during the situation but then again I still can't force people and I think people are also getting cabin fever's will of being holed up in a home when you're not used to you know some people are realizing if they're married. Hey I gotta I gotTA Like I saw one being as it does. She likes the Color Green. I didn't know that. Oh She's Nice but you know. I think that during this time is very important that we just hone in keep generation safe because is very important for us to come out of this. I believe we will come out of it. I just think that people sometimes have to hunker down and realize they don't know it all and let the people who are there to help them out. So you're also very involved with the narrow cafe over on Livernois Avenue. I remember. We talked last year about streetscape improvement and the challenge that brought and then the benefits. Now you got another one here you go. How are things going over there? Just for context people in case they don't know narrow way cafe is on liver annoy between seven and eight mile. Amazing Service like you guys have really done something very Professional there how this impacted things. How is that transition been for the small business? And how did you deal with it over? Time as what we knew shifted in what became known shifted. So it's interesting that you ask that. So last year we dealt with streetscape. We're basically the whole street was basically torn up. People come park right. People had to walk quite a few ways. Maybe sometimes over dirt gravel mud snow just to get to our door and now we're faced with a situation that we had to shut our doors for this time here and we're still delivering our coffee beans those. I WANNA buy bags of coffee or by gift cards and help us out Bernstein..

Gardening the Permaculture Way: How to Create an Abundant Perennial Garden

"Guest today is Morag Gamble. Founding Director of the PERMACULTURE Education Institute Morag is a permaculture teacher and designer based in Queensland Australia where she lives in a permaculture eco-village when Morag is in educating or designing. She can be found in her award. Winning Garden Morag has taught permaculture in twenty countries and is the host of the popular. Youtube Channel are permaculture life. Welcome to sustainable World Radio Morag Gamble. It's so wonderful to have you here with me today. Thank you Jill. It's lovely to be here to today. We'll be chatting a bit about your no did guard method. Which is really appealing to me. Is the Lazy Gardener. Then we'll be discussing some of your favorite permaculture plans to put into our new garden beds or into pre existing gardens fantastic. It's one of my favorite topics. I think the ninety got any something that has just ever. Since I started doing permaculture gardening ride in the early days when I helped to get the north St city farm going in Brisbane about twenty five years ago the neither method was something we started doing there. Because well you couldn't actually get anything into the into the ground OUGHTA shovel. I think you used a pick. It would bounce back. Army way was up and that time every almost saying. Let's do it this way. Let's do it that way. And so we tried all these different methods and over the years. I've evolved this particular way that I create the ninety gats and I always do my God C. Span. I've used this method around the world and is kind of a bit of a twist to the way that I do that. I think it's an interesting part of it to explore because I think it makes all the difference. The four we embark on that journey. I just wanted to ask you for your definition of permaculture in case we have listeners here thinking what the heck were they talking about? Wolf Ame- permaculture is essentially all about design and my simplest response would be designed for regeneration designed sustainable living. It's about reconnecting with nature and living a more simple low impact life and surrounding ourselves with Wonderful Food. Great community doing things in a way that a regenerating the US Amer generating communities regenerating ourselves to. Because it's it's we. We're in a process now. I think where we need people. Who have they kind of? Healing the planet so permaculture Regeneration as well seems like your life and work are all about permaculture and I did read online that you discovered permaculture as a teenager so permaculture has been a large part of your life for quite some I I was at I remember at when I was in high school. I was sorry passionate in as a as a peace activist. There's a lot of things happening at that time. There was the I think. This should notable incident Though at the same time cities. We're getting captured by massive dust storm so the landcare movement was studying. There was all these massive movements happening around me at that time and I spent a bit of time kind of being a peace activist and an environmental activist. And I. I still call myself that but I got to a point where I was feeling that was fighting against something all the time. And and a lot of babble on you see me coming and turn the other way. She's going to start talking about that again. I E to I you know what I may not and so I. I was really looking for something that was that was a positive solution art. If it's not that we don't want that world what will do we want. I remember my my parents. Kinda brought us up in a really natural and and You know a really low fleet locate life and my dad was always reading about coach and he kept handing me this book. Saying you've gotta you've gotta read this. This is this is where it's at and I think it was because of that I ended up going doing Landscape architecture and Environmental Planning Union. I always worked it through what I was doing. And yes so it's kind of being there guiding and and I guess driving in a way what what I have done with my because it made so much sense. It's just really good common sense and sometimes we we overlook the things that seem to be the most simple approach thinking that they simplistic will actually think it's not. It's they often the simpler approaches. Which can have the more profound impacts on a mock sensible to more people? Yes definitely and you know you took your skills as a landscape architect and you created this verdant using permaculture as well but created this verdant gorgeous oasis. I believe your garden has over two hundred plants. Can you tell us a bit about your garden? Your climate and where it's located. Well I'm I'm in subtropics. I'm in the Jaffe of of Australia Dole. I'm on the East Coast and about halfway up the coast of Australia. So about one and a half north of Brisbane and a place called Crista waters which is a permaculture village. And I've been living here for about twenty years this this place. It's an amazing place. Actually because we have six hundred forty acres. That is the Chris. Awards and within that we have one AK- that we have the tower owned freehold title so most of the land is common land for forests for the Rypien Zion's this kangaroos hopping around everywhere and wallabies and platypus. In the rerun. The other day almost bumped into an occasional wounding through the bushes and it's this beautiful natural oasis with surrounded by National National Park. And so this we have a group of about two hundred people who live here and and and work together in different ways. You know From little cow collectives to cafes to All different sorts of things. It's quite an ECLECTIC group of people. And all different ages and backgrounds at last count sixteen different nationalities so krista waters in itself is an interesting place and it has received a United Nations World Habitat Award for demonstrating low impact. Sustainable ways of living I think was there the tag back in the nineties. And so within that context. If it's kind of like a place where people look to come and see what does Pimco Timothy Look like? What does it mean to leave a culture life? Because I think and that's the reason why I'm here I. I came here in the nineties because I realized in e conscious be talking about. Penta cultural people need to see it feel. It tasted touch it experience. It see how it kind of looks what does it. What does it actually man and I wanted to explore that too. So that's what I've tried to create he and we built around hyme And we've created Dot Gardens in the whole way of life that we have here to do that and it's and it's turned out to be this beautiful thing. I didn't have a full plan when I started. I had those guiding behind it and so of being able to create we have a higher Menara Garden and I work with gotten a debt. It's just been an starting out from that point. I actually think the no debt thing has been a huge thing. That's been able to free up a lot of the possibilities for creating this so Gradually just saving up a bit of money and and building a little bit more building a little bit more finding local resources Engaging with my friends and my family to help us build and my house is almost finished. It's finished enough. You

Airlines suspend China flights because of coronavirus

"Now in the meantime everyone is too busy talking about how it is discriminatory to not allow flights to China flies China this is so American Airlines and Delta have stopped flights to China night they're stopping that next week apparently they're doing it for one month because of the coronavirus Beijing is mad and this is after the very biased United Nations World Health Organization W. H. I think is garbage and I think the on garbage too they said that the rapidly spreading out break is a public health emergency of international concern but don't be a bigot and not fly there if you don't wanna get the corona virus you must be a big hit which that ultimately would suggest that they are bigots then right that okay the state department also issued its highest level warning against travel to China that came in late yesterday cases are almost ten thousand globally Sweden Russia today the latest countries to report the virus there's another case in Germany at the death tolls at worlds if China is if we think China's being honest is at two hundred and thirteen they did at least admit that they were too slow to react I think that they knew it but it was just something that they couldn't control anymore and then so delta and American Airlines said that they're suspending flights to China through March twenty seventh delta is gonna stop service next week they said they've got ongoing concerns their band is going to go all the way to April thirtieth and Beijing is mad they fired back after the advisory saying it was a quote inappropriate response and they promised that the corona virus they're going to get it under control okay yeah sure because you haven't been able to do so now and the the situation with American Airlines that's a pretty significant decision because they all are it's the world's largest passenger airline I like American and they flown more than two hundred and fifteen people million people in twenty nineteen and there's a lot of travel is eager to China that's that's going to have a significant impact so that's it I think some of the concern that some people happen there but some people have is that what happens if heaven for bed this disease head to countries that are not in any way established with the infrastructure to be able to even moderately deal with us then there's a major concern especially since it is so highly contagious and also why can't countries decide for themselves where they want to travel based on that type of information yeah that's wrong with that and apparently what is it if you those who were able to come in like on that last flight what do they have to work from home for four weeks because they have to be quarantined so they're not just like letting someone had message me about that like why don't they put them in quarantine will they do I mean a when they come back they do and here's the other thing this is another reason why don't really trust China on all of this check the story out whistle blowers in Wuhan and I've seen this reported in three different places not just Daily Mail I actually was in F. P. peace I think to I which I have somewhere whistle blowers who sounded the alarm about the corona virus were up nearly arrested that those of the report they were were they were reportedly arrested yeah U. K. expert doctor Kumar believes that they arrested by the state for a quote spreading rumors he says people could have been made aware in late December because apparently this all started late last year yeah and it started late last year and the people who are blowing the whistle on it were the ones who they were arrested good night so maybe I don't really trust them so much yeah another quarantine yeah the quarantine isn't an over

"Who reminded us last week that since he took over from Mike savage a couple of weeks ago three to six everyday on our station, the ratings have gone up dramatically now. Of course, we had a double check because you never know exaggerating. But to your credit, Ben, we did go back to management look at the numbers and Yuma right did exaggerate it. All you're doing fantastic. Thank you. I'm glad I'm glad checking my work in that that sort of thing. Well, you know, we like, but you never could believe anybody anymore these days. Anyway, I was reading some of your columns the last couple of days, and I went to Brooklyn college one of the four schools. I went to on Saturday. Just last Saturday. Bernie Sanders started his presidential campaign at one of my alma mater, Brooklyn college, and you wanna call him about Bernie that you actually gave him some credit. I believe at least for the way he feels about race. Is that right? Yeah. That's right. I mean if you look at the democratic field right now, it's breaking down into two lane. Intersection Wayne and the progressive weight and interpreting what's scary for the country intersection scary. For the country. Bernie Sanders would be a terrible president would be good at any that would be part of the appeal is that you actually get done. We're Bernie actually distinguishes himself in sort of a good way democratic field that he does have this older school when we? MLK dream of moving beyond race and send him in trouble. With a lot of the members being sexual Bates. Bill he'll be like using slavery reparations should happen. Not practical. It's thing I think should happen. And you'll get ripped up and down by date. He'll say they'll ask him. Do you think that America really needs another white president? He'll say well. Yeah. I mean, I'm here. And. Going insane. Over view of race is better than the rest of the democratic used field. A great. Very spike class. But I think the class in the United States tend not to be quite endurable as race relations in the United States, mainly in the United States. I've never really been a thing. I mean, the fact is that America's overwhelmingly middle-class country for the Daphne forty distance whereas racial differences, and and you know, hatred based on race has been a very real teacher is history. So revivify inadequate easier than doing what Bernie has been trying to do and dividing us based on income. That is true. But I would say this Ben Shapiro that Bernie Sanders still he still virtue signals in that vein in that he calls Trump who's the most success, homophobic, the other day. So he engages in that himself as well. Even though he claims, hey, we shouldn't do that. I totally agree. Do get the feeling. And I think the democratic base that it's all pro forma in reality. What thirty actually believes is that his socialist principles are going to not only win the day. Karen rate. Here's what he really means redistributionism pogo and most of the people minimal prior to face. No that which is serving a probably for him on the one hand because Yemen wanna members in base who believe in the intersectional ideal, which is that you have to look at people based on what you have to divide people based on right? And then you have to design solutions that are race based solutions. Begnaud was thinking about you yesterday. Talking about Bernie Sanders he falls into this category. So have you checked my Facebook page Rosenberg? Oh, the Twitter writes Roosevelt. Here's what I posted. I said any Jewish person that empathizes with the Palestinians and criticizes Israel is the worst kind of Jew, and they exist in big numbers, especially in my neighborhood on the Upper West side of New York City big numbers. Bernie Sanders is one of those guys. So as we hear about anti-semitism every single day coming from that party. You'll be with what I said if you're Jewish person. There's no way you can be critical of Israel and sympathetic or empathetic. I should say to the Palestinians. Kanye. I mean, it comes down to a binary choice enforcement. Right. I mean, if you have to choose between Israeli government, which happens to be liberal, which is leading human rights or Chapin's to guarantee the right to Christians and Jews between that and the Palestinian terrorists government, obviously that's insurgency and to equate the two talking about various IT that Israel, not being great. Sure. Can do that in the United States can raise role as well. But the general generally placed question that it asked on polls each implies near Israelis and the Palestinians, the answers alestinian westerns and being McGrath. And if the answer is as you, I don't understand what your principles would lead you to undercut the only Jewish state in the history of the world that protects Jews the world over and also happens to be a westernized country that believes in principles of the United States in favor, Ed legitimately, eight terrorist organization that runs the terrorist. Eight. Excuse me. It's it's sort of inexplicable. But don't let me ask you this question. Ben Shapiro regarding. This Representative Omar Ilan, Omar and her statement and the resolution that the Democrats are supposed to put forward then we're gonna put it forward two days ago. They they may put it forward today who knows but they're not going to name this lady by name. Plus, they're going to include anti Muslim stuff. I know the water it all down. So here's the thing that I want to just say is that at least with Representative, Omar and even to a lesser extent. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez and Talib the silver lining is they're exposing the left as the America, Israel hating socialist that some of us knew that they always were including President Obama who is all for single payer healthcare. He was anti Israel. We knew it. But he knew it wasn't politically expedient to announce that to the public. He hit it kept it on the DL. But now they're exposed. Why did you look at the faces faces the Democratic Party and their score Gerald open about their dislike for Israel hatred for Israel are there their willingness to? Ails us on the phone with opening. Bragging about it on Twitter. There is no distinction between the new wave Democrats and the labour party in Britain and management committed socialist party. No doubt. They let me ask you this one of the stories. I don't believe it's getting enough coverage. It gets I guess on a national basis. Some is this crisis in Venezuela. We know what President Trump stands you wrote about this just a couple of days ago. Ben shapiro. He's on the right side. You know, what he's asking Americans to be on the right side. This the guy that's been there. The president. He's just a really bad guy to quote, Donald Trump should Americans be concerned. Well, what what is what is the major crisis going on in Venezuela right now that should keep Americans on top of it? I mean, obviously, the message human rights prices camping in Venezuela does result out-migration, which starts having impact on America's southern border. But beyond that needed me, separating Venezuelan people are been relegated to eating dog. This oil rich rich nation world is pretty astonishing. The fact that again to get back to those fresh faces of the Democratic Party. The fact that all of them universally come out and said that that one who is left wing alternative to the evil socialist dictator events, they don't back that they're they're gonna sit still and let me duties doing. Dislike for American intervention. Pretty astonishing position especially because President Trump, and and nobody else in the west really has the incentive military intervening in Venezuela. Ballpoint is great economic and political pressure from the girl leap, right? And just the fact the juxtaposition right now, these people espousing a, you know, socialism, while socialism is failing miserably they're eating out of garbage pails than dogs as you mentioned in Venezuela. I think it's I ran it doesn't cover inexplicable. Once again final question on the way out Ben Shapiro the border. The New York Times calling it a breaking point at this one and Trump's national emergency may get voted down in the congress. I mean, what's going to happen? There is is he going to veto. It is the Republicans voting against it. The is it a good thing. Or what do you think about the national emergency? I mean, I think that Republicans registered against it. And I think it is a national agency. So both things are being that. There's no question that what's going on in southern border emergency. It's been a slow rolling emergency for for decades. Now rearing its head again. That's nothing. New the problem with the president's national emergency legally start declaring national emergencies anytime, you can't get legislation in congress, and it's pretty bad precedent than it is institutional order without say Blakely out could hear Republicans vote against it president from beat as that Bill, and then and then somebody and presumably the courts either stopped him or they don't stop it. That's that's the most likely waited this works out. Again. I I would have preferred the President Trump just declared authority under and UFC two four and said this drink corridor and have to secure the strength corridor. He wouldn't have had to declare a national emergency. But I think it's all going to basically go according to according to his plan, which is the national emergency Republicans signal, they're they're non support. And then whatever happens happens there. A man we enjoyed this spot every Thursday, Bernie and the listeners like it very much as well. And wish you continued success afternoons here at the station and look forward to next week, buddy. Thank you so much. Thank. That's Ben Shapiro. We'll take a short break. Bill o'reilly's coming up, Bernie and said we're coming right.

"Goes. I what about this. I want to ask you earlier. I made a note to ask you about this. And by the way, my. Who's that? What about depression? Distress anger. Eared ability just generally people seem to let it out in traffic more than anywhere else. Because they think they're. They're anonymous. They're really not forget about the license plate and everything else. I go Gus. But. It seems that people go off quicker than they than they ever did before. Is it the food or is it the times that we're living in now, it just seems that people's fuses are a little bit shorter than in other years. Yeah. You have to great point. And I think it's a little bit of both. I think the food. Yes. But I think the times more than anything. We're leaving on edge. And everybody's on edge editor is trying to survive. You both mom and dad, both working people pulling double shifts longer hours shorter lunch breaks taxes are high and a lot of situations that may not be you know, you look at all the add on taxes, people are just under the gun and. And you just talked about the tax people are going to church too. Not getting that week spiritual food they need to keep them center keeping grounded instead, they're being inundated with negative fighting on social network that fighting atler at fighting at home. And so, you know, there's a lot of depression. After people feel trapped feel no way out. Jesus, you know, look, and they asked him a question about the end times in Matthew twenty four he said well in many mining Christ many, and you shake your voice that you be not troubled for all these things must come to pass at the end is not yet so long as we talked earlier about the Arab the enterprise. Ky-ko's goes through this whole thing. Again, don't be troubled. Don't be shaking in mind or word or letter because the day of Christ is it. Okay. So it's like a top player. Constant reminder be Dr. Last days. It's going to get intense. Calm down take a deep breath on your side. And so. Things always work out in the end. I read recently somewhere. Good things have not worked out. It is not yet. The end. I guess that's true. That isn't it? A lot of truth in that. And and look, you know, every storm we all have our we're all going to have trials we're all gonna go through storms. And it's it's how we handle I preach a message. God doesn't really chilling about what you're going through. He worried more about how you're going to have. Because storms will come. If you trust. God. You don't go off the deep end. It'd be pull yourself together. You will come to the storm and you'll be better for it. At the end of the day. What saying it feels good? And so yeah. People kill entitled they get in a car. Like, you said I like, I'm always afraid Saturday morning. I won't go. I won't go to a shopping. Look, I don't want anywhere near a grocery store. Walmart you get run over. Okay. There's there's some of these folks are just absolutely destination shoppers. It's more than that. This is my time. And if you're in the way, you get hit and so people are. Title. They feel like everybody else in their way. And that part of that in traffic is just the release of the frustrations that already the and this is a life coach need to get. It's been a little more time relaxing. The more time train book Palmdale coffee and take it one day the two. That's beautiful. I wanted to ask you about. We're not hearing so much about toxic masculinity these days, but if we were going to hear about it. I would suspect that men being the the head of their household, but more than that the spiritual heads of their households. What about that? What can you say to us about men recognizing and retaking their position as the priest of their homes, certainly if we're war with the devil. These are warrior priests if they need to dress it up a little bit, but the priests of their homes, what can you tell us about the pastor? Yeah. That's a great thing. Great point. I mean, the toxic masculinity thing I realize it's just one came out. And and everybody's talking about this is a lie. This is the the tearing down of America to just literally to is the head of the household is is in direct. It's weakening the okay, it's all about weakening and men's got. Well, we got this man step up and say, look, I'm on husband on the father. I'm responsible. I take on the provider on the protector. And if you want someone to protect you you wanted to be strong wanted to be wide you long to be courageous not you don't want to take away that low from them. And so this is just a lie. I mean, this this is a this is a horrible lie. That's being pushed upon the American public. And I think actually the whole world. And who's doing the pushing? And why are they pushing it? The question. I think the people that are pushing are those walk to tear down the structure of the greatest nation world tear down democracy, tear, down Christianity, tear down morality. And this is how you take a nation. I mean, you're not gonna take America with the military might there's no nation the world. We can do it. We're we're superior about farm.

"Thirty five on this Wednesday afternoon. President Trump delivered his second state of the union address last night on Capitol Hill joins us now from Washington to recap that speeches CBS correspondent Steven Portnoy. Good afternoon, Stephen and to you. You know, the president was in a good mood today. You said he offered loving words words of compromise. In state of the union last night. He says they've been very well received. The White House is pointing to our CBS news poll taken overnight. Which shows that those who watched the speech seventy six percent said they appreciated. The president's message about twenty four percent said they disapproved of what he had to say the poll was comprised of people who told us in advance. They intended to watch the speech and skewed more heavily toward the president's supporters was not necessarily reflective of the broader population in the country. It's a self selecting population that told us in advance as they say, they're going to watch a speech, but of those who did watch the speech, they told us in the survey that they generally liked what the president had to say. So Mr. Trump was in good spirits today as he was asked about one of the lines in this speech. He issued what he called ridiculous partisan investigations at the top democrat. The chairman of the house intelligence committee announced today that his panel will expand its probe of the Russia inquiry in and essentially get into the president's private business dealings. President Trump said today that Adam Schiff is a is a partisan political hack who has no basis for digging. Into the president's finances. The president also said no national emergency yet. Well, the president didn't mention national emergency. But he again called for the wall. He talked about the onslaught of as he put it of migrants heading to the country and the caravans and the big question that hangs over everything in Washington the next week and a half is whether the president will declare a national emergency the pressure that he's going to face is not just from Democrats, and those who might take to court, but also from Republicans because what could happen is the democratic controlled house of representatives could pass a resolution of disapproval putting the issue right in the Senate where Republican leader Mitch McConnell does not want to necessarily have to put his colleagues on the record as to whether they believe that there is a national emergency in effect. I it's very rarely if ever used power of the congress to overturn a national emergency declaration made by the president. But Democrats say they're prepared to do it in this case, and it might just force and on the record vote in now are there enough votes to? Override a presidential veto such a resolution to actually cancel the emergency declaration. No, perhaps not, but it would put Republicans on the record. And that will put them in a very uncomfortable place. Stephen. Thank you very much. That's CBS's. Steven Portnoy, joining us from Washington this afternoon on WBZ. Well, the World Bank may be poised for a shakeup with President Trump planning to nominate a critic of the Bank to run it. President. Trump says David Malpass has the tools to be ineffective leader. In addition to his current service overseeing the IMF and actually overseeing the World Bank as undersecretary of international affairs at the department of the treasury David brings forty years of experience in economics finance government and foreign policy to his new assignment, the one hundred eighty nine nation World Bank provides low cost loans for projects around the world mopus has called for curbing the World Bank's financial reach and his criticize its lending to China, which provides a lot of.

Yemen on the brink

"We're looking at the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The US this week called for peace talks to begin within a month to end hostilities depicted a Saudi led coalition against who rebels a Middle East correspondent spoke to lease grandba- the UN's humanitarian coordinator in Yemen about how bad the crisis is. I want needs to be done to stave off a catastrophic famine. We know the UN has already warned that there is a risk of a big famine in Yemen, like half of Yemen is are at risk of big famine. How bad is the situation right now out of the entire population? In Gaiman more than fifty percent, close to sixty percent of all the people in the country are food insecure. That means that they're struggling to support their families out of the eighteen million. Who we classify as being food insecure? There are eight and a half million people right now who when they wake up in the morning, they have no idea where they will find their next meal, or if they will have won a we have warned that he's conditions. Do not improve improve very quickly. We think another five and a half. Maybe even five point six million more people will be in those pre-famine conditions. And this is why the United Nations last week invoke secured. The council resolution twenty four seventeen which obliges the UN to warn the members of the Security Council when we think that there is a conflict related famine. And we took that step last week that demonstrates how seriously the UN regards this crisis as the UN conjugate futon if free single month, the United Nations World Food program, his distributing food to eight million people the work that they are doing with the frontline NGOs is absolutely heroin. Now, we know that because conditions are deteriorating. So quickly that we have to do even more. Now, I'll admit to you that the operation in Yemen. It's the largest in the world. That's also one of the most difficult operations were working under dangerous, very complex conditions. It's going to be hard for us to continue to scale up. We are committed to doing. So we know that literally millions of lives are at stake and millions of people depend on the United Nations to. Do what is necessary is there enough food in the country? But people don't have access to it or there's just no food. We characterize this as an income famine. And what that means is that what is driving the famine our economic conditions, many destitute families, simply do not have the money that they need to buy the things that they acquire in the market. There's also the problem of the importers ninety percent of all food in Yemen is actually brought into the country. It's imported well for importers to do what they have to do they require foreign currency. And there is a severe shortage of that in Yemen. And that's one of the factors that is driving the depreciation of the currency. And that is limiting the ability of importers to bring in the foodstuffs that will keep people alive. One of the reasons the UN came out last week and said, we are facing pre-famine conditions in Yemen is because the value of the real has depreciated so quickly and to such an extent. That tens of thousands of families. Just can't afford any more what they need and the real depreciates heave him by just a few times, literally tens of thousands of families are thrown out of the market, and they have no option for food except us do militias grab the food. Or once the food is out there. You're able to distribute the food operation that we're running in Yemen is being done under extremely difficult conditions. Now, we bring in hundreds of thousands of metric tons of food, and then it is transported to the areas of the country where people are most at risk. We then use partners on the ground in order to distribute that food now, it's the responsibility of the UN to do everything we can to make sure that the food reaches the people who need it when we know the food isn't getting to the right place. It's our top to take steps, and we do recently in a very hard hit area. We halt. The operation until we were able to get in place the parameters that were necessary to get the food where it had to go. So a militia was not allowing this food to reach people will he was thirties on the ground who wanted the U N to use a certain partner, and that partner just didn't have the track record and didn't have the capacity to do the job the way it needed to be done. And so we insisted that the partner, which we knew could do that work was the one that was chosen you'll this is something that the UN does everywhere we have an obligation to the donors were accountable to the people to do things the right way. And that's why we will sometimes take steps to say, no, we can't go forward with his operation until the right conditions are in place. What is the situation with sports because presumably the food is Shipton what's happening in holiday, then other ports. So the port of data, and that's just north of there solid. These are crucial ports that we described them as the lifeline for. Northern naming eighty to ninety percent of everything northern game and needs comes through these two ports. And because most of the population in Yemen is in the northern part of the country. The ports are just disproportionately important announce why it's been so important throughout the entire conflict that those ports stay open their functioning now, even as fighting escalated in who data starting in June, all in the last three months, those ports of remained open in the UN is continuing to bring food and we've made the point in. We've made it a strongly as we can that. If those ports close even for just a few days the impact will be immediate. And it will be catastrophic. They are the lifeline for millions of people and the coalition were blockading the port is that no longer the case. Now, the ports are open, and we have received commitments from all of the parties to the conflict that they will stay open if they closed millions of lives are at the line. Obviously, it would be great. If a political solution could be reached that would solve problems. But in the short term to avert this famine, what are the steps because the famine is being driven by economic factors. The key to stopping the spread pre-famine conditions is to stop the depreciation of the currency. Stop inflation, make sure that shippers half the foreign currency that they need. So they can bring in the food that people depend on. We also have to make sure that families have income that they're part of public works program. So that they're earning income that they can spend on the market, and those really are the constellation of factors that have to be in place. So this situation doesn't deteriorate further. The how can you stop the depreciation of the real in practical terms, it's very clear that the government of Yemen, and the central Bank of Gaiman really they played the decisive role here if the government of Yemen is able to inject liquidity. Into the economy. So that importers have the money that they need to bring in the shipments. This is gonna make a huge difference. We've also made the point the impetus need the lines of credit, and this is something the central Bank knish you right now these are two steps which would make a huge difference. We know that the government of game and is deeply committed to looking at these issues to solving them. The point that the UN is making is the time to solve them as now that's why we went to the Security Council last week and said Yaman is facing up famine that Khun Gulf the country and be one of the largest in recent memory. We've made that alert and we're hoping that everyone steps forward and find solutions so that the people of aim and have a chance for the future. So this is the government and the central Bank in Aden. That are protected by the coalition. Well, certainly the government of Yemen and the central Bank based in Aden. They're the ones that play the. Sisa fall. They're the ones that are responsible for monetary policy. And because this is an income famine everything depends upon the handling of the currency the handling of monetary policy. That's why they're role is so crucial. Just now the food that you are able to distribute is that enough to sustain people the United Nations provides a supplemental ration, so it will keep you alive, but not over the medium to long term. It's a supplemental emergency food ration. That means that if you're destitute, and you have absolutely no way of surviving except on you in food. You cannot do that for the medium-term. And this is one of the things we're most worried about in Yemen. There have been literally millions of people who have had no other source of food men the UN for several years now, and these people will they are in terrible trouble. Their immune cycles are breaking. Down. These are the people that we worry the most about right now. Our children already dying of starvation. It's very clear that there are millions of children that are malnourished across the country seven million people are malnourished and three million of those are children. If you go to many of the hospitals in the therapeutic feeding centers on the mound nutrition centres, which you see breaks, your heart. It absolutely is devastating to see young boys and young girls that don't have a chance. They're starving to death. We see it every day. You get the impression that the world is not paying enough attention to Yemen. His very clear that the crisis in Yemen is one of the most dramatic and deeply warring crisis in the world, the UN characterizes what's happening in Yemen has the worst crisis globally. Seventy five percent of the entire population needs some form of assistance, and there's no other country in the world who are higher percentage of the population needs help. If this crisis is not resolved will the consequences be bad. Just full the people of Yemen humanitarian crisis or are there? Other reasons why the words should take notice humanitarian crises are rarely self contained. They have consequences that extend far beyond. I think in the case of game. And what's absolutely clear is that the magnitude of the crisis risked, so many things that we care about you know, when countries breath. Down when they fall apart. But we see our mass migration human trafficking, transboundary, epidemics, the breakdown of law and order creates conditions that allow for the spread of insurgency it can allow for the spread of terrorist groups that have international aspirations and intent it's so important that he Ayman is stable. It's important for the people came in first and foremost, it's important for the region. And it's important for all of us.
