White House Announces New Security Pact With Australia and UK
"Let's just talk briefly about this new partnership between the us australia and the uk. Casey it was announced yesterday. Just explain what it's intending to achieve. Guess there's it's an e packed in in theory and is a security pact. We have a situation where australia will be making new submarines with health in the us. Osa the caper in the us technology in us intelligence. And it has created a diplomatic steph or a number of reasons one. Because obviously you have the five is and this appears to be a breakway from the fives. Some of the countries have in it meeting on coming up with the rain plan. And i think that is seeing even though it's not specifically as a response to china and this is a group trying to tackle they think will be chinese aggression in this area. I think that you use saying the allies or the allies of the uk. Australia and the us. I'm unhappy because you have a situation. Where france had been quite a public their annoyance over this land because a french company had previously had a contract to let australia on submarines and that has now gone in favor of lectern with the us. And that i think are new zealand. A member of the five. Is you have a proper. Because just into autumn relating to rules they had previously in place is saying that these submarines won't say. Hey kennel enter. Newseum waters and i think that is just suggesting a tilt. In towns case foreign policy in the areas it's focusing on usa allies most values
U.S., Australia and UK Unveil New Security Partnership
"The biden administration's efforts to counter chinese dominance in asia and support allies in the region is gathering steam. This week the us uk and australia agreed a landmark security pact in the indo pacific. The move will see australia.

Monaco's contributor in canberra ardebili. Gary sent us. This report the news that ustralia is going to be getting nuclear-powered submarines came out of the blue five years ago. We signed an agreement with the french to provide us with diesel-powered submarines. It has since become clear that these technology would not be adequate to meet security challenges. Plus they wouldn't be delivered for almost twenty years at the same time. Need security partnership between australia. The us and uk was announced called aucas. All of this is pretty big knees. Even if you're not someone to spend a lot of time thinking about submarines the full details haven't yet been announced but it is clear that it's all about sending a strong message to china. Tensions between australia and china has been increasing over the past few years so this deal is all about australia. Proving to beijing that it has big and powerful allies that it can rely on but it will get australia. Offside with other friends new zealand and pacific countries are avowedly anti nuclear. Oh new zealand has already said it won't allow the subs in its waters. Australia is a signatory to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty.

Facial Recognition Tech: Open Your Eyes to Radiation
"So infrared radiation. Which is the thing that we're using the tool that they're using for this facial. Recognition is thermal radiation is more electro magnetic radiation spectrum and a certain wavelength above red visible light between seven hundred nanometers and one millimeter. That's the wavelength and then there was a study done on and this is brutal. I'm sorry that this happened to the rabbits. However i am anna site. This study in service of the rabbits that unfortunately were brutally killed in this process. A hate that studies are still doing this. But this is something that was done study was done in new zealand to look at potentially harmful effects of this infrared radiation. This i are standing. For infrared radiation on the either rabbits were exposed to varying amounts of the i. r. then were unfortunately. This is where it's brutal. I'm just telling you they're heads. Were cut off. So then they were able to look at the lenses and the retinas and all of that stuff immediately after that and they concluded that the protein of the islands is very very sensitive to this infrared radiation. And that's the difference. Infrared radiation really doesn't do much in this form to the scan into the body but when it's directed at the i that's where things can go sideways and actually can contribute to cataracts. The exposure of the rabbits was up to ten minutes and keep in mind that that is not the exposures usually ten seconds for the phone. But what we don't know yet is how little and how much will create the damage. But if you're opening your phone multiple times a day than that adds up and then over time over length of you using your phone and weeks months and years and decades. Now you're starting to get the hint. That infrared radiation going into your eyeball is not a great idea. According to the international commission on non ionizing radiation protection is c. n. i. r. p. They made a statement of the i. r. energy from ira an i. r. b. poses a risk to the human eye the penetration depth of these. I are bands varies from one point. Two and three micrometres therefore the corner the lens and the retina can be damaged due to the thermal effects associated with the i. r. exposure

These are all real tweaks. Yeah breads had a lot of fun with the side effects. Petro is tweeting to and she couldn't tell who the ads were. Even for really so i didn't understand. The advocates ought to sow the medicine to the public. And somebody replies to the tweet saying it's not to sell sell it so that you go to your doctor and convince them to give that to you.

One is there's a tone basin which is where like there's all these boats docked there that are gorgeous. There's little clock museum which i mean. If you like clocks go if not just looking from the outside window you could see enough. But there's a sculpture trail and quite large. And that's where. I mentioned chris booth. He did a walk and wave sculpture there in partnership with another artist if you walk around as the whole basin and waterfront cross a bridge go to the other side can take you a good hour or more. And there's tons of amazing sculptures and then the other thing that's there is there are hikes that are gorgeous. The sculpture park. It's called the who tail loop sculpture park. So it's an actual loop that you take to see that. And then i did the mount par haka walk. It was a bit long in. It's uphill both ways. That's the thing here. I gotta tell you. I feel like in new zealand like it's always hill. Even when it should be downhill. I feel like i'm always walking up and it's insane but that must be why people here are in such great shape. 'cause they're just doing a lot of walking at the top of mount power haka. Is this beautiful view of fugger. A and there's a sculpture of immoral. It's a maori woman. That's a beautiful sculpture up there and there is a cross like if you got the sunlight correctly and i put this on my blog post to another blog post about gray. The sun shines through this cross and it glows red. And it's absolutely beautiful so that's a beautiful walk and that will take you..

"They are so new that there are. I've met new zealanders. That have no idea what i'm talking about and have never tasted one or her to one and they are as i understand it working to be able to freeze them somehow. Also that they're available all year round but for now just two months of the year and they are delicious. So highly recommend that in kerry kerry itself. There are five waterfalls all of which are so. There's two of them that you can easily do in one day. So i mentioned we. We talked about that f. Sound there's far pook eighth falls and rainbow falls. And if you go down to the carry inlets which by the way has a wishing well which also is to me any town with a wishing well right is just you gotta go and so right by that inlet. There's the stone store which has a museum up top highly recommend seeing and you can also from their visit. The campus the campus is the oldest building in new zealand. Serves a lot of rich history. Right here in kerikeri. There's a restaurant called the plough and feather which is now kind of pub style and it sits right on the water so you can have a beautiful view and also eat mostly pub food and sometimes they have like other food as well. I also recommend if you like drinking have a phychi sour fit. Joe is one of the fruit that grow up here. And i think it's originally from brazil and i had never tried. I didn't know they made look her out of it. So if you're familiar with fiscus our firm like chile or something. This is that that but with joe which is sweeter and they have them at the plough in feather just had one the other day. They're really good. And then as you walk towards where you'd pick up the trail for the fire pook falls. There's also the honey house. which is i believe. In the olden times they actually stored honey there. But now it's a cafe which is also lovely there's ducks and kuku and beautiful birds right out front. That i think are used to being fed by people. And then there's this bridge that crosses over the water that's the inlet and if you're lucky to be here during rainy season so right now it's winter and it's raining a lot up here. I've never seen in my life so many rainbows which is another reason to come to new zealand. The rainbows here are stunning and last year. Some friends and i came out after a storm and we saw a rainbow. And i've never in my life. We we saw four rainbows. It was three separate vans right. Three separate bows with space in between them and one of the rainbows did the color spectrum like back to back purple on one side yellow. Whatever the colors in the middle and then it was like a double band of yellow and it went all the way out through the spectrum to the right but it was like to band together. And if you're over that bridge and you can see that. I have a picture of a rainbow while i'm standing at that bridge..

"Won't to wet collaborative late. There's lots of activity like The nasa sophia infrared aircraft comes to new zealand to observe the southern sky in on the aviation side. There's been a lot of support for Experimental testing there's been balloon testing and large scale the testing and things like that. in fact. there's there's even a recent agreement in in the area near christ church for a a new current space testing area out near earnings flat and so there's a support across the board in the areas that make this a friendly place. in fact we have talked to several people in moving companies here from europe that they just couldn't find a place in europe for their flight tests and they wanted to come to new zealand just develop their airspace. systems is there. danger guys could become too crowded. There's potential there. The i mean certainly We're talking just in the aviation and High altitude areas Right now it's not much traffic for the it's much less than other parts of the world but and then of course satellite orbits a global. And so there's the other concern about the increasing number of satellites that are in the sky that have both plus minus aspects of that with the stratosphere getting more crowded and the danger of space debris increasing. We need to know where it all is. So it's incredible this point tracking facilities being set up Nina esp and that's really contributing to how well we know the positions of all of the things around the earth and if you're launching satellites You really need to know the information because the last thing you want to happen is a collision which would be a disaster. I small piece of debris just a couple of centimeters in size has the energy of appiano moving at sixty miles per hour. We are often called. Google maps of space. We're building the base layer map of the low-earth orbit environment. It's a dynamic map. It's changing it. Shows where the satellites are where the debris is where the new satellites are going. And we're satellites are being taken out of orbit. The company labs in based in california has four radar tennis around the world and one of them on this on the south island here is eland and they have a unique partnership with the government in new zealand. provide tracking for anything launched from new zealand is part of the new zealand's obligations to minimize space debris under us agreements. And i'm really impressed by what new zealand has been able to do in this area by partnering with a commercial satellite tracking provider there. Actually i i hear about my friends that are connected with the us tracking system in the the us military and and they're stuck using computers from the nineties and struggling to keep up with new satellites whereas leo labs is providing really modern tracking to the new zealand government. And so i think a couple of new zealanders laptops has about the same capabilities the us space force in this area. Many many years ago. I used to work on the hubble telescope program nassar and you know you travel around america and goes all these amazing places and see incredible engineering and i to say what i moved down to. The you know few years ago if you told me. I'd be seeing similar activity here and using and that's gonna happen but he has an and the pace of is quite impressive And these are serious companies. They don't like small up. Some of them are doing quite big business and i are actually really contributing to the local economy in the regions of new zealand. Then again that's another aspect of this all of the developments. The senate in auckland or wellington they are out in the regions and there are opportunities out in the region for people to set up these new businesses. And of course the other thing we go through member is the opportunities to launch spacecraft here There's not much to south of us. So if you launch threat south you pass over any populated countries until you get on the other side of antarctica. So that means if your rockets do crash. They don't do any damage so again. Museums are pretty good. Place to be able to launch rockets into space attracting people from i think it is. Yes and i think given the amazing performance of this country during kofi Living in new zealand become a lot more attractive than the last year or so And i think if you couple that with economy that is Willing to kind of adapt the relative ease of access to government and the people who make decisions it does make this country a very interesting place for folks to come and work and you can see that. There's a lot of investors trying to move down to new zealand at the moment. And and of course a lotta talented engineers and would love to work down here in this part of the world. I think the thing we go to think about here though. Is you know the future museums. Economy exporting milk to china. You'll probably making you know certain amount per kilogram but if we stop exporting ideas to the wool. The the property that we're doing is really valuable so you know instead of paying whatever is maybe sixty seventy one hundred bucks for kilo of of milk to go somewhere. We might send kilo of high tech stuff. That's worth tens of thousands of dollars and there's real opportunities. I think here in the new economy and of course able services economy. We need to education system that generates lots of people have the talent that we need in this new era and not just scientists and engineers. You know there's also ways that folks office can contribute towards this as well designers and that kind of thing so I do think all of this activity does mean that it's up to us now to join education system. He can produce people who can serve this new economy. That's all for today. I'm alexia russell. Thanks to ian griffin erik. dalstrom and maria.

Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. . The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. . I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, , forty, , nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, , which is called the national policy, , which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, , and that is the first time that any he's been. .

System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, , thousand, , nine, , hundred, , sixty, , they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, , ondon rich city areas, , and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. . 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. .

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. .

"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..
