The Early Days of Esports: Competing in the Championship Gaming Series with Scott "Boomser" Bednarski
"I'm excited to talk with you after I talked with Aaron last week or two weeks ago. He was like you need to talk to Scott because Scott has some awesome stories from back in the day. So first first thing to start take us back to the days of the championship gaming series and set the stage for people who weren't watch sports at the time. What did that event look like? So back then with the championship series was first and ousted the Oceania region, there wasn't much news or information about the the series there was no like real announcements a TV show all these large Acquisitions that they are doing in North America and in Europe of these top teams back then so the the whole Prestige of it or the whole the whole production value just wasn't saved from the community in Australia and the Mets game in Australia still was Cal strike 1.6 and the game was to be played in Counter-Strike source. So when that news came out along the top teams of the top players back then didn't really have much of an interest in converting just to be into this red tournament that that was to be played in Asia in in in the Malaysian reads. So what actually occurred was minimum exposure to it earlier about six or seven teams from the Oceania region was to play this qualifier with not much, New Jersey. At all, I was actually part of the winning team. I was actually playing Counter-Strike 1.6 and I actually retired around that stage and when they realized that they had to go to Malaysia office. There was an age limit the chip should gave me serious said that you must be eighteen plus I'm assuming this got to do with the contracts that people have to sign but there's no mentions of salary said full-time work and and all that type of stuff that we professional player. So I was actually called out of retirement from my brother who was a part of the proud that when he came home and said you want to come over to Malaysia and I was like, oh free trip overseas that was like the bee's knees and Esports in Osceola and there wasn't many opportunities to travel overseas. I've done it a couple of times at least age boasts really rare. So I decided to come out of retirement and go over to Malaysia and we just knew nothing about anything. Even our manager knew pretty much nothing and we had one team Utility from Australia. Both Counter-Strike Source teams were flown over to Malaysia. We had the ballot bailed out between us on stage to determine which team would represent. Oh Chicago but where we got there. We're in this bus and we're just had no idea where we go. We were taking all these back roads in Malaysia. We just like, oh this is going to be one of those events that you read up about where everything's not organized and you know, the conditions are you know, fantastic but we got there. They took us to the most to this day. It's pretty one of the best hotels Resorts I've ever stayed in my life. It was a fantastic facility and they had all the teams from Asia there as well. So we had china we had to buy we had Malaysia we had Korea we had see a poor off all those countries were they're from Asia representing their their regions, and we're the only region that yet to determine who was going to represent the cows truck side of things. But yeah, we first got there was just fantastic and long story short we end up competing against the New Zealand team. It was meant to be telecasted but circumstances happened where we couldn't get home video tabs that we had to fight a red of net cafe in Malaysia that would accept us to play against each other with the CGS or officials and then we ended up defeating the New Zealand team quite convincingly off next minute reader that we get told that we played all the televised live production that's going to be sent all over the world to play against all the Asian teams. And yeah, it was a roller coaster from that. That's what everything pretty much

This is a wake following site. That incident is so get a wrap up of what we do on free dies. Well what julie did. She did a lot more than what we did. But we tried our best and without further ado. We'll bring in julia emigrant a site. Commissioner julie. thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me and thank you for getting involved in safer n that day last week. Yeah look we we. Our best in did reach out to try and get you on on the actual david. Maybe tell us about the die is well like you. Everywhere you tycoon. Various strategies tv channels on the day that you had a little guy. It was great. We've continued to really gather some really important momentum and what was really important for us to bring the whole broader community along so we have three thousand organizations that officially signed up. And i think a lot more than engaged and it celebrated in one hundred seventy countries and due to the time zones we in new zealand together kind of set the tone for the whole day. And you know i guess ten to punch above our weight in terms of what we do so Here we we had a sub theme beyond better internet Which was start the chat. Because we think it's really important that we're actually giving all of our citizens Some actionable things that they can do And certainly we focused around a couple of different deliverables this year and the first was the release of some of our research around the digital lives of ozzy teams But then we also released two new novel resources on one was a picture book about swish glide and rule number. Five there little australians. Sugar gliders that. Tom you know dealt with issues with tablets in in the woods and we had jimmy reits rebe read the book for us and he was fantastic. We also have a my family rule song by lala who's another children's entertainer And i found it Almost more infectious than baby shark or fruit salad yummy yummy by time it catches on and we hope that mothers and fathers around australia will forgive us for that. But i of course what i think drove a lot of Coverage in the interest was the research around them to. Jill lives of ozzy teens. And there were some pretty concerning findings in there certainly Now we were talking to teams themselves and so you can take this with a grain of salt but they told us they spend an average of two hours a day online but they are using up to four different social media sites at any one time and then forty percent told us that it made had at least one negative online experience in the past six months between march and september so really during the lockdown and the most concerning stout of course is that one in three had had a stranger contact them online. And that's up from one in four back in two thousand seventeen. Did our broader national. You survey there were other unwanted experiences. They were having To antenne had unsolicited Images whether they be Horn graphic images or a violent extremism content sent to them stops that they can't see stuff that they told us very distressing so that that wasn't great news updates Combative full them. It's it can be combative Even just monitoring a twitter fate. It can be Interesting rating at of the least amongst professionals that line. What it's like. And one of the things i wanted to read chapter in terms of things like hong gaming platforms Sort of made some comments around. That is well one of the key things on on this Fame was online safety and public awareness and maybe public around that cohort of teenagers. How how prepaid by when the coming online do you think by outside compared to five years ago. Do you think these is high. And it's time to start to engage in that conversation with a a young a to decide. You're going to say some things that you need to be able to company and comfortable to come talk to us about his parents so you heavy heavy find that developing no spoke with a very good observation because one of the things that we've seen in terms of engaging with young people but also through this research is particularly after a young person has an aide negative experience online. They're developing empathy and they wanted to have more information about how to stay stay safe online and keep their friends online now a concern of ours for a long time is that the vast majority of young people out there will not tell a trusted adult when something goes wrong online almost fifty percent An yeah that's not surprising. When we we get to our teenage years we're trying to establish Dependence from our parents. I'm a i'm sure. A lot of kids are concerned about device them or getting in trouble. They may feel bit of shame but they also told us they don't talk to a trusted adult because they don't think It'll be taken seriously. There is anything that can be done. you know of course. A lot of teenagers are morfey with technology than Of adults but i think what we need to get across to young people and again. This is why the start. The chat theme was so poignant so important here is that we as adults do have the judgment maturity and life experience to be able to help kids know. Solve a range of problems problems whether it's reporting to the platform or reporting to safety but it's important that we start the conversations early and often. It's never too early on. Its particularly not too early given that we know that forty two percent of australian two year olds have some kind of access to a digital device usually through entertainment by the time. They're four years old. It's up to ninety four percent.

It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, , I to China, and , then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. . For, , what was a very, , very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, , Bara brief surges pretty much. . Succeeded I. . Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. . Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, , this weekend. . So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. . See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, , and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. . That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. . Labor a was looking the polls. . The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. . This election would have been a one term government, which , is not very common in New Zealand central a being. . Overseas particularly, , for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, , they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. . The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. . So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. . So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. . To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. . She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. . I, , think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. . So in a way that has served her well at home. . Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. . In key, , we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. . But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. . What about sort of kitchen table politics? ? This is. . Just. . On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. . Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. . It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. . Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. . The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. . Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. . So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, , but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. . So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. . But. . She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. . She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. . Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. . There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. . They don't need. . Them might be handy have degrees inside the government say they're not handling the sidelines said that could either be a formal coalition or a more informal arrangement in which the Greens folks with Labor early onset issues. . So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. . But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? ? I mean new. . Zealand certainly must have suffered economically from the pandemic if not quite so much as elsewhere in terms of the human cost, , it is in a recession. . Now the economy is going to contract by about six percent. . This year unemployment is rising the wage subsidy that is coming off. So . Wild New Zealand has done very well at keeping the virus out there going to be lots more questions about what that has caused it, , and how it is going to drive a recovery how it's going to get out of that mess. . The Prime Minister says that there is a plan for recovery which includes things like building lots of roads but to her pregnancy looks quite incremental. . They out there in no big plans for tax reform for example of just third some income tax hikes. . But only on the talk to percent of workers say theoretically might think that with such strong majority, , they pressure more radical agenda but there are many people in New Zealand see that. . So to be so popular, , you've got to be fairly uncontroversial owner. . Thank you very much for joining us. . Thanks, , Jason. .

Of July an every day you wake up and you something else change and be different, but the reality is. This is new. Zealand we might be ready to open. the state's wine. Open a big blockbuster if they cinemas on so not only if they had to deal with covert, but now you've got mass protests. The last thing anyone is going to do is a open a cinema. Regain obey. People aren't really interested in going to the Cinema Z eight. I think the stat that I heard was at least eighty five percent of domestic cinemas in the states must be opened before wonder brothers will consider releasing tenant. So, what does that leave the state of the New Zealand Cinema Industry? Struggling events obviously. Publicly having to make quite a few people redundant, the company and and strategic The income has been flipped zero. I mean they've had to close the doors They want to get open as soon as possible. Points will be the same as Aaron combined. Strident Company the signs of autism and am I think they've had a couple of little cinemas Australia open, so it's says already saying they were ready to go as well so that what vein China is going to do as it's, they've got licensed for a couple of really great big screen old school films. They've got diehard They've got alien and aliens. They've got the Matrix and they've. They've got the Gulf Gremlin. So that'll probably open the doors and Shiduan a few of those table back in which for someone like me I'm pretty doggone much aliens on the big screen any day, but it's not the same rates as opening a fast and furious or black widow. It's just it's just not we at the behest of America that's at the end of the day. It's not like they're gonNA say Milan can show in New Zealand. Because of course they want to show in China Nikki Curry's been very specific about this at the story having come from China to be a film that they will embrace and cinema sort of. Cars, but the New Zealand there as a potential big upside. But how big is that I mean we head the Avatar crew? Arrive and we've made a big deal of that. American producer Jon Landau has made the cut. He's making the sequels with James Cameron. I'm in New Zealand on the set of the avatar sequel. Restarting the three point, three billion dollar film industry, which provides CD, four thousand jobs can't come soon enough. Is that the beginning I mean? How realistic is that that this could be a real bone for for making New Zealand I think if we get an Thurston getting hard the. The question that we could take advantage of this situation and Einar NFL from from the film commission has been talking about this, but I've also been speaking to a lot of hits of production houses by stable New Zealand, is obviously people from screen time and around the traps that have big co pros at corporate productions that are shaping up and down the country that would instantly put on hiatus, and all I need is one or two people own honesty I think there was one production that needed just three Canadians to come back into the country for the entire production of. I I. Two hundred people I'm to kick back into into action and I know when the the covered. The new protocols were released by the New Zealand Film Commission in Ed slutty started to get kicked back off. I know we side Fatih Three's production kicked off last week, and then narrow from running for the final season, the casting again for ads, which means casting agents awaking again, and you'll have location scouts out, and about the power of the dog started again today, the giant campion one at so. Those are ones that were already in production kicking off We've always been looked at as a great place to shoes. If we're able to let people into the country, that's the biggest cave. There's absolutely no reason why they can't be a bone. You've got those brand. New spanking studios have just opened as well which I'm dying for a snake Baker and we still up. And we need to. We need to capitalize on this because. It's a big industry, and it also means if we can't blanket late hold of internationals, and even to be on cruise. It means we have to look to new. Zealand people to to fill those and I know a lot of companies will recasting roles was looking for New Zealanders because they could get their internationals beckon. So. I haven't been asked to be customer waivers. As Weaver and etta. Consider and it's great having their Avatar people back in here. It's a huge production, and it employs just hundreds and hundreds down through the tracks, but they'll be all sorts of other little ones cruising bacon as well. I certainly hope so. That should be entitled to that same exemption. So, what do you think the future is for international film festivals I'm so interesting and what can has announced last week? Week as it headed selection and couldn't show them the festival. Obviously, they cancelled the still, but they've given it as a kind of a badge of honor with Anderson's French dispatch might go to white to say this film I'm at a host of other international films I've fifty of them have been given the CAN stamp of approval so that they can go out and be released as a can. Qualify as sedating when you look at the the cover or the poster, and it's got the the Ken Competition or out of commission in can am which is rents massive badge of honor. But you've also got an opportunity for those films into use to market themselves, which is really really really great thing to do. Venus sounds like I'm not sure. If you saw a story at the weekend. focusing on in it's just it's just nobody there in the city. Obviously tourism's it's. It's only way of making money and the Venice film festivals, Joe and September the governor has said that that phone will go ahead. And if it does so, the feast is confirmed it will be the first big major festival, so everybody's diversified, but everyone wants the film festival circuit back up and running well as Kate Rogers sees the international film. Festival circuit is the life blood of entertainment, reporter and filmmakers distributors the entire industry. Some have canceled this year. Others have gone online New Zealand's is just weeks away from going online for the first time in its forty eight year history, but getting the it for the new boss. Martin Ray Bouts has been tough the. Interesting thing was was finding US sales, each of us in different roles dealing with. The anxiety that came with covert the not knowing what the future might hold from all different corners, all of our partners in everyone that the fistful normally interacts with. They didn't know what the future was looking like, and they certainly didn't know what a digital online fiscal future was looking like. Are you talking about sponsors? And all sorts of says he s and the rights holders industry it is both internationally and locally because it it had never been done before, and there were a couple of vegetables internationally, that will sort of jumped on the online format before us better yet. We've been making it up as we go along and it take like all of lockdown to get their the. Where we, we started before lockdown, we had made the decision to go online before lockdown with Sydney through all of lockdown. I've never worked so hard.

York. That I'm talking to people in Christ church. I'm not sleeping with US moving into one now. Is this a mistake that you've made this decision that? The New Zealand filmfest was going online rather than. No I'm so glad you asked me that because. It gives me a chance to to have. People understand that it takes six months to set up a film festival. The work that goes into actually takes a year like we've been.

"Today New Zealand prime minister just into order said the country had stopped couvert. Nineteen and it's trucks and Sunday officials recorded just one new case. There is no widespread undertake community transmission in New Zealand. We have won that bet. Oh but we must remain vigilant if we keep it that way. So at midnight tonight country will begin to loosen. The strict lockdown measures put in place a month ago in Crete safely retuning more New Zealand to work enabling businesses to reopen allowing some of the recreational activities. We've missed in the past four weeks New Zealand's ambitious strategy has been to rid itself of the virus altogether. It's not the only country that's nearly cove and Free Australia. South Korea and Taiwan are also now contemplating life beyond the virus country's policy responses to the pandemic vary widely but New Zealand's approach may provide an anchor for a virus free region of the world. The mood in New Zealand today on the cusp of the lockdown listening I think is one of cautious optimism. Kimmy Salmon is a staff writer at economist. People are also just looking forward to a bit more. No melody being able to get things like takeaway food again which hasn't been possible for five weeks one enterprising New Zealand Did manage to freeze a box of Kentucky. Fried Chicken at the beginning of the damage. He's been enjoying at his leisure. Almost everyone else has been cooking for themselves for over a month and aside from Fresher Fried Chicken. What changes today? What is moving down a level where they will still be a number of restrictions in place but the government says that about an extra five hundred thousand people will be able to go to work. That's about twice as many as we're able to go in the last month when it was just essential workers and things like construction manufacturing will reopen as long as they can put in place acceptable safety measures. Schools will open at least for students who can't stay home and other activities. Some of the fun parts of life will be a little bit more possible again so Kiwis can fish again and they're allowed to go surfing as well other. The Prime Minister perhaps doubting Kiwis Natural Surfing ability. Did Caution New Zealand does. This is not the time to try out a potentially dangerous new hubby and so New Zealand has had quite an unusually strong lockdown so far. What has the prime minister's objective bannon going about it this way. You WANNA sit itself. Quite a unique goal eventually eliminating the virus entirely from its shores. The hope is that this would bring really significant benefits. Whilst many other countries risk cycle of lockdowns preps gregory openings and then maybe fresh restrictions as another wave of infections hits New Zealand's government believes it may be able to send New Zealand young and old back to work without having to worry that the number of cases will surge again altogether. Because it's actually gone from the country completely. This could mean your schools shops restaurants operate without special social dissing requirements live. Sports with an audience could begin again and this of course would potentially provide a lot of Sydney the businesses who could then hire people invest in new equipment without having to worry the couple of weeks. They might be shut down again. And the prime minister itself has really emphasized us in warned that oscillating between different levels of lockdown could be much worse than what they're hoping to do with the strategy of elimination. And how achievable does that seem to be? Well there's no doubt that finding every last cases of the virus will be very difficult currently this testing of workers that don't have any symptoms but that are in jobs which might be risky supermarket workers or health workers. That kind of testing will need to be expanded. A lot at it's been described as finding a needle in a haystack by the Prime Minister. Herself preps most significantly though elimination is a strategy. Means that really strict border requirements will have to stay in place so today almost all foreign as a bad from entering New Zealand and even returning citizens are placed in quarantine for fourteen days in monitored hotels and the government's own economic models assumes that New Zealand may have to stay close. We'll have to stay close to furnace for. Of course those some do doubt with this is feasible or even worthwhile to do for such a long period. Well worthwhile is certainly question. That's being asked all over the place everywhere that there is a lockdown these sorts of trade off questions. What will the cost be of a virus free island but one that has exactly zero people passing cross-border one it's important to recognize that of course? New Zealand will be effective regardless of what it does with. Its borders. It's going to be hit by a global economic downturn just like ver- but of course these controls do add some extra complications. A big one is with tourism which was Zealands biggest exports sector. Four million people visit New Zealand most years and this kind of strict border controls could knock about five percent off of GDP and put potentially one hundred thousand people out of work and similarly exporters need to still get their product out and while the border is open for goods there are far fewer planes leaving to take those products out with them and before this crisis New Zealand had eighty percent of its airfreight freight go- and passenger planes but ninety five percent of the flights of the national carrier and New Zealand have been cancelled and says now a real struggle to find space to even get your horticulture products out to the rest of the world. And how does newseum compare regionally? I mean there are a couple of other evident success stories. Not Too far away. Let's right there. All the countries in the region that also having real success at keeping the number of new cases down to very low levels of South Korea and also Taiwan although there recently struggling with a new outbreak coming from a naval vessel Australia for example has been able to reopen its beaches. People Are Swimming and surfing. Again they're opening up elective surgeries and dental CA- and South Korea's even allowing people to take holidays domestically but it is true that in all these places officials cautioned that it's not going to go right back to normal quite yet but also in the region there are places that have had no cases whatsoever. Right I mean other countries that presumably also have their borders closed. That's right some of the Pacific islands have had no cases or in some places only very very few and they've also taken very strict border measurements to try to protect populations and simply keep the virus out in the first place. That's working quite well. It seems of course. Many of those countries rely on tourism. And it's not easy to keep your borders closed for a long period to do that. We'll is there. Some capacity for the notionally virus free countries and territories to essentially coordinate their efforts to cooperate under a virus. Free Banner there absolutely is number of these countries Beginning to talk about potential virus free zone the Prime Minister of New Zealand and the Prime Minister of Australia. Scott Morrison of already discussed a potential trans-tasman virus free bubble. And this would only happen. Of course wants they were certain. In both countries the virus was truly in verifiably under control and and frankly almost non existent and then there's also hoped that could be expanded to other countries preps Pacific islands as well so that could be a broad virus free zone in the Pacific but a course that does depend on whether that truly is no virus in the region and that remains to be seen.

The face of the crown is still a human face specifically in this case rick pockets face Mavis. Inner team decided they were going to try and win over Rick Barker. They launched a kind of soft diplomacy campaign. They invited him down to their area. It took him to the forests to the lakes to Mount Bruce Buca and they put rick in front of the very people. Mavis was negotiating on behalf of how people could come and look them in the eye and level hate them as well have a look at this guy you know what's Rick Baecker. Rick Remembers one moment in particular from one of his trips because he just didn't seem to get why sharing all of these cultural sites was a bad solution so Mavis had rick come over to her local cafe. They order their coffees. They sat down. My was very good. She can be very succinct and very clear about what laws that she wanted she said look. We need a place which has for us. A place for us to stand in for is to be proud of sometimes. Just turn the knob on the microscope and suddenly you're the images shop and I thought well I get that I just Moved me it? Apparently moved rick so much that he went to his boss and said look I think with Mount Bruce Pook we cannot split it needs to just go to Mavis eweek and also about that official name. Mount Bruce that needed to change to now. This was the moment that Mavis could have fought to tear down all of those Mount Bruce Signs and replace them with the original name Puka but when Mavis thought about this she was like look erasing. One history with another is the original sin here so completely replacing Mount Bruce with PUPA. That is just another version of the same problem and save. An team agreed to a different kind of solution. They agreed that the official name of the mountain should be Puga Slash. Mount Bruce it is still members Pakeha Slash Mount Bruce so. I doubt want to be disrespectful of syphilis. Whoever Mr Bruce my bane who knows but it but it is about being respectful of all of this. Sorry pook amount. Bruce Fantastic love it but on the side of the negotiations. Mavis enter team. We're a little less compromising. Remember their initial offer from the government was around ten million dollars. She and her team were actually able to get that number way up. It's a little complicated. But in essence Mavis team beat the crown at its own game if the government was going to use a formula. They were going to scrutinize just about every number getting plunged into that formula and in the end the government conceded quite a bit that initial ten million dollar package tripled Mavis e wound up with thirty two and a half million dollars worth of money and land including of course Pakeha slash mount. Bruce of a satisfied was I- throat and I talked to my uncle. He still thinks we got the rough deal and and I don't disagree with them but the settlement was I felt the beast we could do with what was in front of us and offered the way this works. The government doesn't cut chicks to each individual member of Mavis Z. We all that money goes into a trust controlled by the way that they invest the money and then each year. Mavis zooey is able to withdraw a little bit of that money for things to help the community start to rebuild things like additional education health social services so money land changing the names of things. Frankly those are things that government can do fairly easily but the third and final part of each settlement is something that bureaucracies are notoriously bad at apologizing as in actually showing up and saying we are sorry and what was being planned was that a group of government officials would come to save US hometown. That's it up a massive tent. It would be packed with hundreds of members of Mavis e we the Treaty Negotiations Minister Rick. Back his boss he would step up to a podium. And then after one hundred and seventy five years. The crown would officially apologized to Mavis Z. We Netanyeh but look Mavis. Already knew what that apology was going to say. Because the actual words were part of her negotiation with the crown and each side was supposed to review those words before the actual apology ceremony. And Frankly Mavis didn't think she would care that much about the apology because remember in her own words. Words are cheap but we received the apology draft. And I got it on the email and I set a learn in the hotel room reading this apology and just cried all of a sudden these document that says we acknowledged that we did this and reserved. Sorry for all of this even now it. It's still still crates reaction and May Do you want to just read it? Is that okay? Yeah Gortat for hyper cried. Undead guys have crybaby. We're not.

Eliza in Wellington we passed in the street and he said to me stop. Anita have coffee with your cousin wasn't just grabs you and pulls you into a coffee shop. Yeah that's how it started.

"Amazon for through to your economy and it starts hitting even homeowners because you know that kind of net migration to fix prices in so you head although there was a kind of migration in You head the clock government who came in afterwards and Ramped it back up. And so you have this continual tension with the New Zealand government which is an New Zealand politics. Which is as a country. Our economy does run on a lot of migration is traditionally run. And we're not quite sure how to run it without steady inflow of migrants coming in but it is electorally is about You know some people say five fifteen percent Some say more voters who are very concerned about Levels of migration an impact on the cultural issues around New Zealand New Zealand's cultural identity so deliver this issue of false expectations. I mean we need the oversea students. We need those people who come in from the Pacific nations to pick fruit. But does it create problems because they have the expectation that that will lead to residency. Yeah well I mean you know a lot of these migrant exploitation scams this is normally the key calls of them which is the disconnect between the way that the lucky hood of getting residency has been portrayed to many of these people are applying for it. This is the reality as it has changed over time and the thousands gathered like a another surge of immigration for example that was a time when about eighty percent of migrants came from offshore. And today when you're talking about people applying for residencies it's the other way round. It's people who are already here and who are on work visas who are now applying for residencies and that is a situation where people have given up a lot to come to a foreign country and with the expectation that Yes it's going to be difficult and they're going to have to jump through a few hurdles but this is still a likely pathway to residency but those opportunities of basically shrunk if you looked at the number of work visas versus the number of residencies. They were kind of planning for I. Think in two thousand and eight. They're about one hundred. Twenty five thousand applicants On work visas for a planning range of that. Kinda hit about forty seven thousand a year. And now you're looking at about two hundred and nine hundred thousand people in where he visas. Applying for about Thirty Seventh A playing range about thirty seven thousand. Wow so yeah I mean. It really illustrates the pressure on on immigration New Zealand and appreciate from migrants to won't be citizens a New Zealand and I think that it's a New Zealand cultural thing as well. I mean I think that we like to see ourselves as a nation of migrants and as a welcoming country for migrants so we have traditionally been very reluctant to put in place schemes that you know schemes to say Some little Dubai. Where in Dubai they have. A large number of migrant workers come in and they have no expectation that they're going to become citizens or residents of Dubai on a permanent basis. It's just the way it is. Yeah that's the way it is but New Zealand culturally. I think that we have very much shied away from that kind of system because I guess we see that as You know creating effectively a migrant underclassmen ironically arguably You have created a similar situation if you are Basically putting people in work visas and they get they're able to keep renewing them fourteen years but they.

"In what you're hearing there some of the sound that I recorded last year atop mount meager north west of Whistler BC that hissing sound is a mix of steam poisonous gas and the scientists who took me there. Is Glenn Williams Jones. He's a professor of Vulcanology at Simon Fraser. University and the CO Director of the Center for Natural Hazards Research Search. He's been studying the sights sounds and rumbles of mount meager to predict when May next erupt Glenn Williams Jones joins me from our Vancouver Studio. Hello Hi hi there lent Glenn I should correct myself. That was two years ago when we were up there but the smell of that gas is still I can recall it so clearly. What were your thoughts when you first heard heard about the deadly eruption on White Island You know sort of shock and fear for for the people that are going through that. That situation Some of my former graduate graduate students are working in in the New Zealand Sort of response and you can just imagine the crisis situation that they're in just trying to you know to to get in there and try to to find the the remains of those that have been been lost. This eruption eruption could have been predicted. No the Hate the term predicting Because it's both see. How will we do Predicting whether a few days in advance take that same complex complex difficult situation put it underground. It's just a chaotic Pretty almost impossible situation to predict We can forecast these things. And what makes this worse is this very what is really a small eruption It was a steam driven eruption eruption. These are really very very subtle signals before they erupt so almost impossible to predict well in that sense. Then what do you think of the the idea volcano tourism again. It's sort of mixed emotions You can see the up. The positive the upside Better better education of the broader population. you know the positives of To the economy the tourism component especially in Other developing countries this this is an important resource but at the same time. Of course people are being exposed to To some dangers. A as your your former guest Allen mentioned and Other adventure tours are typically much more dangerous so you just think of some of the accidents that happen Hello Skien in the mountains and things like that. Yeah well how can tour guides mitigate the risk then remaining informed working closely with the the local agencies be park officials or in this case You're the science team and the Unit Network that monitor volcanoes in New Zealand. And just trying going to be As as much informed as possible. Have you yourself ever stood On a volcano was erupting or close to it yet. Actually a go worked on Volcano in Costa Rica called Renou that would erupt about every half hour or so smaller eruptions and we were down on the lower flanks where we could observe it And do that safely I've been into active craters filled with acid lakes again. You try to to be careful It's easier to be careful if you have that knowledge right okay. So so. Is there any chance of us in Canada facing similar eruption of won't maybe again the the most likely the if there was to be some kind of activity would be Where we went to mount meager north west of Whistler and Pemberton Different type of volcano. we're looking at their something where we've got gases moving their way up through a glacier from the hazards perspective. It's very very difficult to get to. You have to fly in with a with a helicopter and there are some guided tours that do go in there And they're the big risk as as you mentioned is the toxic gases so they take the precautions. They go in with gas monitoring equipment to make sure that they're not At at dangerous levels but this kind of eruption this sort of unpredictable Steam blast we. We've not seen anything like that in Canada. Not to say that we won't sometime sometime in the future. How many active volcanos do we have here? Active ones will as far as we know one But we need to do a better job of looking king for them and and this is where I'm hoping we can leverage you know the citizen scientists in Canada who are out in the back country just observing gene and looking for abnormal Behavior Abnormal Things in the ground the hot areas or areas areas where snow has melted. Where that typically doesn't so you know? We don't know a lot about our volcanoes. They're big they're remote. They're they're hard to get to in their costly to get to now. There have been fidelity's from volcano eruptions in Canada. Haven't there yes in fact The the one that we know the most about is as a project that we're working on north west of terrorists at the CFO candler fester NBC. Northwestern British Columbia. That's right and US far as we know Back in the late seventeen seventy s And the oral traditions From the people suggests that Three villages were were destroyed by this This eruption in this case a along fast moving lava flow. Let's go back to mount meager. What does your research? They're looking at at meagher. It's A. It's a complicated system because we have this active volcano erupting at the moment but gases are coming out so we're we're trying to bring all sorts of different tools together to look inside the volcano using geophysical and geochemical measurements of the gases mapping of of the Rock But the other bigger problem too for from a hazards perspective is the mountain is very very unstable stable and so there's a calling it rotten. It is very very rotten because of those same acid gases that we're seeing coming out of white island that that turns the rocking to very weak kinds of clays and so it's a super unstable system and in fact the site of Canada's largest landslide in in twenty ten so we're seeing areas that using satellites of that are moving at centimeters per month and potentially ten times the size of that that twenty ten failures so it's a very complicated Difficult place to work because it is so big but we're getting there. How how what impact breath? Climate Change had on Mount Meager and on other volcanoes and. That's that's really an interesting Subject that starting to to try to tackle Because as we see this at meagher as the glaciers are receding the meltwater flow is changing within the the rock and again as we saw at at white island that water interacts in the subsurface forms that we call hydrothermal systems. And this interplay between the changing dynamics comics can start to potentially Increase the the deport the destabilization of the mountain. So this is this is something that we're trying to due to grapple with it at meagher But you know similar problems are potentially Occurring and other ice-covered volcano say in the Andes for example. So we've got about thirty seconds left Glenn Should we be monitoring all volcanoes in Canada. We ever system absolutely But it's a difficult thing. It's a costly exercise. However if we don't look than we won't know and the key thing is we need baseline information so that we have a chance at forecasting forecasting the next eruption?

The helicopter pilot moved around the island and did so for some time and so baked report that unfortunately there was no sign of Life New Zealand. Prime Minister just into Delivering the grim news about White Island. Six people are confirmed. Dead at an eight are still unaccounted for. After Monday's volcanic eruption information about the victims is still coming in. We do know tour. Groups went to the island that day to you. See this specific volcano. Some of the missing are part of a tour group on the cruise ship. Ovation of the seas. SYLVANIA's is a Canadian who took the cruise trip. We reached reached him on that ship in Tauranga New Zealand. Hello Hello Laura. What did you see? I was coming down Mount Manganelli which is right by the ship ship. It's a famous landmark Mountain and I came down and as I came down I was taking pictures of the beaches and the ocean that could see in the distance. This island highlands is about ninety kilometers from where we are in Toronto and I could see these huge white plume of smokes going up in the air and they were quite large and and I thought maybe there's industry. They're probably their smoke smoke. Stacks and one of the locals. Who was jogging there? She stopped and told me she goes. Well it's your lucky. Okay you get to witness one of our volcanoes erupt and I was like I was amazed I was excited and so happy. Be Able to capture and see that with my own eyes so I just kept looking at it until until I walked back to the ship thinking we great. I just saw volcano erupt. And Wow how lucky I was until the bad news camp right and the captain makes made an announcement. And what did the captain say. He advised us that you know for those who do not aware. There was a catastrophic eruption of the volcano where guests and crew were on a tour. But he did not have any updates and one thing that stuck to my mind is he said the ship will not be be leaving this port until every passenger and crew as accounted for. What was your reaction? When you heard that I had tears in my eyes and I was holding back and I was shaking and he just telling you now it's getting emotional again? It's it's a surreal feeling to hear this where people that I talked to the night before four were supposedly on that tour is just like it hits close to home. Even though you don't know these people personally there there you know you've crossed path. Where all here you're on a cruise? Having a great time and here you want experience something sectional and then just took kind of put myself in their shoes. They're just completely surreal. How are the other passengers reacting? Everybody was really really quiet. And everybody was turning on their their devices to to to to listen to stream life New Zealand news because they were having copters the the prime minister who is adored. Here she did a wonderful wonderful job like trying to console people and informing people that. That's I think when something critical like this happens the most support thing getting information. People Crave details same. Same as a on the ship. We want return to know just because we feel shaken by this emotionally. What went through your mind when you started to hear just how serious it was? Yeah I didn't realize at what point seriously was until captain made that announcement and it just hit me and I just remember putting my hands on my face and just holding my mouth and the tears were welling up is and it was just like wow. This could be good have been anybody that decide. Hi to sign up for this tour and these starts was three ahead so fast like having lost lost close people to me and and then some people now are going to experience that most likely and and this being one hundred fifth crews on Royal Carribean the last ten years. I've made a lot of friends that are true members and there were true on there and he's just don't know your friends are actually caught up in that it's the rollercoaster of emotions that goes through through a hundred miles an hour inside of us is it's hard to describe as it's unbelievable. So what is the mood on the ship. Right now It's a lot more somboon was before this happened considering we're halfway through twelve day cruise today is day. Seven of the twelve days The mood definitely has changed the the amount of passengers going to venues. I went to a show last night at ten o'clock and there was a lot less people than normally was in previous cruise. Because I've been on your since November number twenty third and it's definitely changed. I mean the only thing that has not changed and I hope we can give a shout out is to the crew of the servers the entertainers everybody on ship. They're performing as they were before and smiling and taking excellent care of spoiling US twelve hundred thirteen hundred crew members on ear over four thousand passengers. And it's it becomes once you leave port you start your crews. He already started making connections talking to people people seeing the same people over and over and then you always wonder was that person part of it were they part of the couple. That was in their honeymoon that I spoke with two nights ago in the concierge ears lounge the guys I cruise ever and the wife was so excited said. I'm making sure that we do an excursion. Every single port. Stop that we go to. They haven't been seen since the incident in the lounge last night. How long are you going to be on ship? Well supposed to end on the the sixteenth of December. But right now. We don't know what's GonNa Happen if it's going to continue or go back to Sydney we have no idea. There's just so bunch of rumors going on Sylvan. Convince thank you thank you lower. Sedan was in Tehran. New Zealand volcano tours. Like the one on White Island happen all over the world. Allen clue runs volcanic Hanoch experiences and he's been taking people on tours volcanoes for more than two decades. He's in Bromsgrove England. Hello Hello Laura. You've been to white island in New Zealand. What is it like? That's what a scary place you can't but feel the force of nature when you Get onto that that island or as you approach it and You know it takes an hour to get there If you go by boat looms large group gets larger and larger with constant plume of steam coming out of it in large quantities. It's a landscape that is is very difficult to describe quite or inspiring the fact that you're stepping into a crater the live volcano. What makes it scary though? I think it's a combination of the landscape itself which is is You Know Bright Yellow Sotho. Lots of steam Bolinger hot springs water. Also the the feeling the evil force you do feel that he could erupt at any time during normally do that. I would say you know the lies. They would never take take tourists stab but the the ground does feel alive for their safety precautions. Then when you went there is safety precautions in that When when you first arrive the company which organizes that particular excursion gives you a phone breathing on safety They tell you what to do. In the event of an eruption they provide you with Hollard helmets and face masks to to keep the the gas out of in your face which is quite accurate so frus guys which does make you cough and dumb. It does make your is smart as well. What did they tell you to do in case taste of interruption basically to try to find some shelter behind rocks to make your way back to the harbors cook? This is possible. I'm curious on the tours that you offer. Do you get up close to love a happy trips. That done For for example Kill the way in Hawaii where we've got fairly close to the law or in the past and also on Mount Etna in Italy but quite often lava although it's hot and flowing it it does flow more slowly obviously but it flows like a river in a particular channel so so you can approach it from the side. Although the wool of heat will keep you some distance away from it You get a good view of going past you. It's not going to change course and come at right you a tool. What do you do to keep people safe on your tours Well I am take people on to places where there are well used. I used footpaths with proficient local guides these tools where there are tens of thousands of visitors Those guides are licensed by the national authorities and They they don't tend to take you to places where there's any real danger. Every volcano is has the potential to erupt but some do have a propensity to erupt violently and produce it's more explosive eruptions And if that's the case then the guides would keep you well away from the crater areas where any explosions. I would be likely to occur how common then our injuries or deaths in the volcano tourism industry. I would say in comparison to other types of Tourism Buddhism. They probably very very low that there was one person that I can recall earlier. This year to killed on the island of Stromboli Trombley erupted but they weren't to guide they'd gun up on on their own and used path which was not used by to restrain. Easy I would say that. The accident that occurred yesterday is really the Very very unusual. Well it changed the way you do anything with your work. I won't change anything personally. Do I think hindsight is a great thing. And for for example ten years ago it was possible to go with guides to the very top of Mount Aetna the main crater and and You know the the authorities following eruptions which didn't actually kill anybody The Italian authorities stopped people going some distance away from from the main crater. I mentioned Stromboli before which erupted earlier. This year I've climbed up to twenty times or more. Well you know since the eruption that took place this summer than what's happened is the Italian authorities have stopped Any access to the upper parts of the volcano here. You can still observe the eruptions but what I'll be doing next year. Risk taking the group to view eruptions from below other than from above Mr clueless. Thank you Allan. clueless is the owner of volcanic experiences. He was in Bromsgrove England volcanoes. Those are risk all over the world even here in Canada there are more than two hundred of them in this country..

Jan Dole's calls that's the The New Zealand word for flip flops and it was coined by Kiwi businessman. Who was inspired by the footwear? He saw on a trip to Japan so soon after he and his son started started making their own version of the rubber slip on in their own garage in New Zealand and as a way to pay homage to the culture that inspired it all they name their product. Gender handles which is sort of like a Portmanteau of the words Japanese and sandals. So you know the kids show power rangers right it. Of course the power rangers. I can explain it to you so you know the show was massively popular. It was filmed with us like existing footage in Japan. And then a new characters in California another Mrs but but The show is a massive success and got imported all around world but not to New Zealand. the show is actually bad there for being too violent and and this was true even after production for the show shifted New Zealand in the late nineties. Ladies more than a dozen seasons long running show were filled their ears but kids in New Zealand. Didn't get to see any of it until the ban was lifted in two thousand eleven. Thank goodness was lifted. But you've probably heard all the rumors about all the crazy laws that New Zealand supposedly has like the one that prohibits quote militias bell ringing being a unfortunately while that was really a law New Zealand. At one point it is no longer on the books in fact the country has been pretty good about updating. Its laws and doing away with weird eared outdated stuff but there is at least one exception. Though according to the New Zealand Herald it is still against the law to say no questions asked when advertising advertising a reward for missing property so if your dog drives off with the car one day you can't post a flyer asking them for their return. No questions asked if you you could actually be slammed with a fine of up to two hundred dollars. Here's a Nice feel-good story from a few years back in two thousand and sixteen forty thousand New Zealanders banded together and bought the country of brand new public beach and when the eight hundred meter stretch us in up for sale early that year. Two brothers in law. Adam Gardner and Wayne major major decided to launch a crowd funding campaign to try and keep the beach from falling into private ownership so during the campaign individuals incorporations pitched in to help by the park. The New Zealand government even got into action. They threw in a two hundred twenty five thousand dollars a US dollars to the effort and in the end donors raised about one point seven million dollars which which was enough to by the beach from the original owner and today the beaches run as part of the Abel Tasman National Park where it's free and open to the public. Yeah it's definitely a feel good story but I Actually think I can top this story because one thing I learned this week is that New Zealand is home to the first of its kind a nationwide secret. Santa Gift Exchange so this program started on twitter back in two thousand ten when one New Zealand user suggested that anyone interested should connect through the site and then dig through the post of they're assigned person in order to sniff out clues about the kind of gift that they might like the first couple of gift. Exchanges proved so popular with the public. That in two thousand thirteen thirteen New Zealand's postal service actually signed on as the official sponsor so the program continued in the years since even adding a physical warehouse to help deal deal with all the packages now. Thousands of Kiwis take part each year. And it's all for the sake of making a strange holiday just a little bit brighter. Oh I really like and and I think it is better than my story and it's also seasonal which is I- richest great. So so congratulations. I think you get the trophy all right. Well that's going to do it for today's part our time genius for Myself Mango Gabe Lol. Thanks so much for listening. We'll be back soon with another episode..

Who is the owner of the New Zealand? Breakers is already talking into high school players about taking the same path and having the same conversations with other parents that he had with Rj Hamptons. Parents were gonNA hopefully develop ourselves. Rj Jason that. He is such an amazing experience that we are the teams. If you're going to do this you come place in the New Zealand breakers. I think they took a huge risk. Here you know saying come to our league and you're going to have this amazing experience and you're going to get ready and you're going to get drafted and it's going to be. It's going to help you mentally. What if RJ Hamptons stock falls for whatever reason what his stock falls and he's not drafted as highly as he might have been or what if he comes back and says you know what that was all right but it wasn't great you know this doesn't go well for whatever reason? What are their kid is going to try it? Yeah and so Dana you've been doing on the courtly lied. Seen him first of all in two exhibition games one against the Memphis Grizzlies one with the Oklahoma City thunder first game against the. The Grizzlies was an epic disaster. At half a block by Grayson Allen. I think he was nervous and forcing things and he did not play particularly well he got yanked late in the third quarter for kind of failing to go back on defense and do not play in the fourth quarter and some might argue. It's an exhibition game. Why bother but it was a lesson that needed to be taught since then? He got better when he got to New Zealand and steadily. He's been better as we talked about. Rj didn't move there by himself. You know his parents and his little brother there with him and while you were there. There was a documentary film crew following the family around. And I want to ask this question carefully. Did the situation feels feels strange or at all exploitative to you like his parents clearly have attached a lot of their hopes and dreams to RJ and his basketball career and they've really pushed him out into the spotlight here. Did it feel like this is something that he wants that RJ wants. I didn't get the sense that he felt forced forced at all to be doing what he was doing. I did get the sense that he was. You know it's hard. I was like Waco and all I did these twenty eight Games James and then when I get home I got that I totally someone gave me a wish like say. Are you gotta live whatever outcome but you can go to sleep wake up tomorrow and those twenty eight game or played yeah. I understand that one of the scouts. I spoke to me degree point. That had he gone to Kansas or Memphis or anywhere else especially as is a point guard. There would be sort of an education at some point on how to run a team how to make sure you're being a really good team leader team point guard will the pro ranks. There's not time for raw teaching. There's an assumption that you know what you're doing at the professional level and he doesn't and I think he was having a difficult time at the time coming coming to grips with all of that. Like being benched deservedly so in some circumstances not to say he regretted it but just he understood that okay. This is different than and it would have been if you know go self call me into his office five times a week to have long conversations and heart to hearts and things like that. I don't have that here and Dana. You also also got a chance to talk with Terence Ferguson from the o'casey thunder who also played pro ball in Australia instead of going to college. What did he tell you about? RJ's decision yes so he talked to RJ and his family quite a bit through it and he. His advice to him was do you. I mean he didn't WanNa really sway him one way or the other he said. Did you know he did not regret it. I mean it did not hurt Terence Ferguson one bit. He was drafted first overall by the thunder. And he's playing. He did admit that he was in Adelaide. Eight which is I guess not been to Adelaide but it's a smaller town. I guess in Auckland. Auckland is a pretty pretty cosmopolitan city and he was bored of Auto Ping the best thing I did. I learned a pretty against the wall. I hit off the wall and uh-huh everyday and he got so into the Ping Pong that all of his teammates bought Ping Pong tables and they had tournaments in the locker room based on Terence's playing ping pong like for hours on end funny thing was I told. Rj that's during his eyes lit up. I'm like you should go get a ping pong table and he's like Nah just fortnight. All right so you know. Rj definitely sounds a little lonely over there but overall Dana. Do you think he is happy with the decision decision to go play in New Zealand. Yeah I mean I think happy is a tricky one right. I think basketball wise now that he's playing better and he's finding himself. I think that's a better circumstance. I definitely think that there is sort of a and I don't think he's a regret. But there's this sort of like maybe college would have been kind of fun guys my own age after the game is over we go back to the dorm and instead of playing fortnight and it's I'm seventeen hours ahead of the guy. I'm China play with a match the time I'm sitting next to him in some apartment -ment goofing off being a college kid. I think there is definitely a sense of of missing that definitely a recognition of I've given up something in exchange for this and we'll see if it's worth it. He said more than once because I asked him more than once you know. Is this a good decision. I think this route I I linked route is good good route just depending on what situation. You're in Kenya. And he said I won't decide that until it's over because it's not fair to the judge it right now. I'm going to decide that when it's over in February or March and what about his parents did you get the sense that his parents are happy with the decision Marketa. The being dean much more reserved was the one that said. There is no point in tracking basically in regrets. And you make. That's right right. You've made a decision. You made a very calculated decision to live with it you know. Rod insists that even when he played poorly in Memphis in kind of rebound and played a little bit better in Oklahoma City and played veteran New Zealand. That that's that's what he would not have gotten in the college game that he was getting a baptism by fire frustrated because he wants to do more. And if you've studied RJ seven years. You know he's a killer and but that's part of growing up in part of being a pro and real introduction to what pro basketball would be like that he could not have gotten at the college level I think in in Rod's mind this has been a success will then I think the main takeaway from the story is pretty clear. One of our listeners needs to open up a chipotle in Auckland because there's a very hungry eighteen-year-old there who will put away a lot of Britos. I think actually I'M GONNA I'm gonNA trump the listener and I'm going to do it myself because I think I could make the money and I know exactly where the houses so I know what corner to put it on. I'm not that information that's priceless well Good luck in your next career. Dana and Thanks for talking with us. You can read Dana.

"And so I heard about this this weekend while I was driving north into wine country. And I didn't originally I this is how this is how accustomed IM to hearing about these types of shooters. My assumption was that it happened in New Zealand, and they said, oh, we were attacked not because we are open to people because we're closed off. But because we're open, and I my initial gut reaction was oh, we've had another another Muslim shooting like somebody's a mad at New Zealand now, and they're out and know, they've had some sort of mass shooting and killed fifty people turns out that's not the case at all turns out, it was a white shoot or white nationalist who shot up this a couple of amok. I read one mosque here. This is part of the problem. I wanna get to shot fifty people in a mosque. But I got back this morning and started looking I wanted to read through what had happened. And so one of the things that I try and do is I don't I try not to comment on this stuff until there's been a little bit of time. So that I can analyze what's really happened because as Matt pointed out a little later on earlier this morning. He said there was what did you say? There were reports of multiple shooters and pictures of them on as it was happening live. There was stuff on Twitter. There was pictures that were posted of multiple different guys. Fatigues being arrested, and it was an official multiple reports. That went out that said that there was four people who are arrested three men and one woman, and there were multiple different reports of multiple shooters, and is interesting because a lot of these mass shooting of insolently that's happened where there's been reports of multiple shooters and the officials come out and say, it's just one one shooter, and that's it and I can understand like in the Las Vegas shooting where there was multiple different hotels reporting from miles apart. That there was people coming in saying there shooters nearby and in an area where there's lots of large buildings stuff, you could get on the sound of gunfire could be reflecting and weird ways stuff. So people could think that there's multiple shooters. There's only one in this one it was pretty cut and dry. There's multiple shooters going on. So they caught the one guy. So when are they going to catch the next one? But now supposedly there was only just the one. So is your is. It sounds like your contention is that there was some sort of conspiratorial cover up of more than one shooter. Well, I would say what would be that the is a conspiratorial cover up. But just that there's there seems to be a lack of transparency and the the biggest focus right now from the perspective of the New Zealand government. And the media is rather than dealing with the issue and covering perhaps about the victims and discussing the situation itself the media the narrative pivoted to white nationalism gun control and trying to wipe all evidence of the shoot. From from the internet to eliminate his his manifesto that he wrote they're trying New Zealand has made it a crime to possess footage of the event and someone's already gotten ten years in prison for it for possessing footage of it. And that's weird priorities. Hierarchy will let's let's talk through that..

The ladies room was on the right side. So all the ladies were there, and my wife is a Louis leading person for ladies. She headed Phyllis aficionados is to tell me I don't want to hold a new position. And I want to prove that you don't need to have any position to help people. She has like a magnet. And they're exactly the same thing happened shooting started. She started instructing several ladies and children to get out. And she was screaming come this. We hurry up this and know, she was doing all this things. And then she took many children and ladies into safeguard then she was coming back. Checking me because I wasn't who share. Asking why you're in the wheelchair? I was run over by a car. He was drunk river in it was nineteen ninety eight seven sorry. She went out to the mosque. And then she came back. Yes. She was coming back. And we'll once she was approaching the gate, then she was so she came back into the fetch. You is. Freed learned hours later that whom so was one of the forty two people police say or killed at the mosque. So she was busy with saving lives in a forgetting what herself. And there's that's what she's she always has been like this. Six minutes after firing the first shot and as police raced toward Eleanor mosque looter drove to a second mosque the Lynnwood Foschi four miles east.

The gun bullets and our screaming to come here. I'm here. Just want to put more focus on me and go inside the Mazda, but unfortunately, just called himself to the heart. Shooting found shooting the jet. Moments later when the gunman went to his car to retrieve more weapons Aziz followed this guy, tried to get more gun from his sky when this on chasing the gun is that this got just got that the intro. Window like arrow lost his window, and it'll probably short game or something and the cans come back in just drive off Z's used the gun to shatter the gunman's car window, which many witnesses believe is what prompted him to speed away rather than re enter the mosque and kill more people rather. You was there. Have you? Minutes later video shows the suspect being pulled by police from his car two and a half miles down the road where two more guns and homemade explosives were also found. I want to speak specifically about the firearms used in this terrorist act. They would to see me automatic weapons and two shotguns on Sunday. New Zealand's Prime minister just into order said that the suspect an Australian citizen would be tried in New Zealand, and that her government would meet today to discuss the country's gun laws. I can tell you one thing right now our gun laws will change.
