Microsoft Said to Be in Talks to Buy TikTok, as Trump Weighs Curtailing App
"President Trump has given Microsoft until September fifteenth to negotiate a deal to buy a piece of Tiktok that's a step back from trump's threat on Friday that he would ban the popular Chinese video APP, which he calls a national security risk. Let's bring in Greg Remai- Otas he's an editor at Reuters and was one of the reporters who broke the story and Greg Microsoft said in a statement that it's committed to acquiring tick tock but there are a few things that they I need to work out what are some of the main concerns over the next few weeks? So, they need to convince US national security officials that TIKTOK will not offer any backdoor to China's government were to be separated from its current owner by dance and be owned by Microsoft. All of TIKTOK data on American users is already stored in the United States, but because talks platform. It's algorithms is code are shared by other by dance APPs US officials need to be convinced that if the word to be a sale to. Microsoft. By then sworn, be left holding the keys and still have access to the APP let's break down just a little bit. So talks parent company, which is a Chinese company has taken steps in the past to try to appease US regulators on this front. But president trump still says it's a national security risk just remind US briefly how we got here. So we wrote a sexually broke news last year the Committee on foreign investment in the United States had opened an investigation into Tiktok. This is a US government panel, the scrutinises deals for potential national security risks. But of course what has happened since then is that relations between the United States and China have deteriorated. The president told reporters less last week that she was sexually looking at banning tiktok. But we reported yesterday that he will now allow this process to run, and if process will basically give forty five days for Microsoft and bind them to see the negotiate a deal that can you know a piece US national security officials So, this Microsoft deal would involve them buying tick. Tock Service here Canada Australia and new. Zealand so does that mean that this parent company would still operate the service in the rest of the world? How exactly what that work? That's the key question show. We understand that as far as those countries are concerned, Microsoft would be taking over but like the the. will be in the detail because this is being don show by will have no access no backdoor TIKTOK and to be fair that's probably why you show the president and some of his in the White House not being able to make up their minds because it's been like a very big question mark can you know that the -nology of Tiktok really be taken away from by them in a way that satisfies US concerns. Microsoft owns linked in, but otherwise, it isn't really well known as a social media space. How big of a deal would this acquisition of Tiktok for Microsoft I mean would then put it in the same space to compete more directly with the facebooks in the snapchat. So the world absolutely would be transformative and you may have noticed at the congressional hearings last week when. Four big technology company CEOS attracted the ire of lawmakers Republican, and Democrat Microsoft wasn't there. Beyond Lincoln Microsoft mainly focuses on. Business Software and and this you know and map that both hammer million. Users in the United States, would you know give Microsoft one of you the social media industries, gems, and? Turn them into. A very big player she'll be. To see how the president navigates the politics of this deal with his own base menu supporters are suspicious of big technology companies. They perceive any inherent bias against conservatives, social media, and at the same time you probably over the weaker many of his you know Republican supporters, Lindsey Graham, particular tweeting, making statements, encouraging the president to clinch the deal with Microsoft show. You be very interested to see how trump navigator this. Yeah, I mean some of the speculation is that trump backed off of earlier threats because it would alienate the party's younger users ahead of the election do you think that this deal will actually happen? The big unknown here is this technology issues we discussed this you sure absolute seperation back of suddenly has the cash to pay for this. The question is, can a deal be put together? That appeases the hawks in DC. That's Greg Room Yoda's editor of corporate finance in Deals at Reuters Greg. Thank you. Thank you.

Animal Crossing adds bad luck and Valve's Gabe Newell prefers Xbox Series X
"Animal Crossing New Horizons Ads lucked into the game which may have larger implications regarding its future valve boss Gabe. Newell says, he prefers xbox series and X. playstation five but doesn't really explain why and CD project red warns against clicking links in emails about a cyberpunk twenty, seventy, seven, begum. Animal Crossing has been updated to include bad luck animal crossing received a second summer update recently after adding swimming a little while ago. But this one will make you fall over in drop balloons more, which is weird and further proof that maybe animal crossing isn't for me specifically but I suppose I, could see why adding that random to the game would be. Fun. Basically. As you're running around the island, sometimes you might trip and fall, and if you're holding a balloon, a newly added item, you will drop it. It will fly into the sky. You will also apparently be able to now create a King Tut mask if you find some gold but if you wear the mask, it will make you trip more. The implication there is that luck and specifically bad luck may have been introduced to the game, which is something that has been an animal crossing games in the past Patricia Hernandez reported on the update for Polygon and explained how this mechanic was implemented previously writing on a good luck day everything is amazing. You'll get more money from rocks. It'll be easier to befriend villagers and you'll have a better time avoiding bees because they'll. Move more. Slowly, the world's your choice. Ter- on bad luck days. It's the complete opposite you'll find fewer resources it'll be harder to raise friendship levels the money rock will become stingy and just to pour salt on the wound you'll trip and fall on your face wearing the King Tut mask will immediately lower your luck which is why you'll trip way more often it's probably an Easter egg hinting at the masks cursed nature The full story complete with some embedded video showing the tripping mechanic and action is linked to the show notes. This is such a strange, but this is kind of where animal crossing tends to shine weird little additions that make the overall experience more interesting, and in this case, a little unpredictable. Valve's Gabe Newell says he prefers the xbox series x when it comes to next Gen hardware. This is a quick story because. Honestly, there isn't a lot to report on here but Gabe Newell Generator of Countless memes and the boss over at valve appeared recently on a New Zealand talk show called the project and he was asked which next generation platform he preferred and he said without much hesitation the xbox series X. C. Nets Daniel von Boom reported on Newell's preference and wrote in their story appearing on New Zealand talk show the project Newell was asked by a host which console would be better the xbox. He said emphatically to a year from an audience member when pressed on whether his preference stems from his years. Working at Microsoft, he added I don't have a stake in that race we do most of our development on personal computers but the two I would definitely go with an xbox that story is linked in the show notes. But that's all knew really had to say in the past he has been outspoken about not being a particular fan of playstation not in a vitriolic way or anything, but it just mostly because it was difficult to develop for playstation three for example, in Valve Games do just fine with their PC releases but valve and Sony did for some steam applications on the playstation three not. Came from it but for a time, there was some compatibility between certain steam games like portal to Andy playstation three version of portal two, but it sounds like. Relationship was there has just not sustained. There are plenty of suctions that can be made here. Of course, maybe Newell and Valve are just million with the xbox series XS development tools since they do all stem from pc architecture, maybe newell doesn't like how Sonya's investing in unreal and how epic is using the playstation five to showcase. The next unreal engine epic and Unreal Do Represent Valve and steams biggest competitor in the digital PC. Game storefront battle may be newell just pates Ratchet and clank. It's all currently unclear. But if you're a valve fan and want to see more valve games on consoles, it sounds like xbox series x might be your better bet. Here's what released today liberated is out today on it's a puzzle platformer game that takes place inside a comic book. I actually gave it a full proper review on the June fifth episode of the Gaming Ride Home podcast. It has some cool ideas, but ultimately, kind of came up short for me when I played the switch version, some of my complaints were related to technical hiccups though. So maybe the PC version will be a little smoother

Had you know half lives of their nucleotides pads of of only twenty minutes so the? The test was was ineffective for this. These rabbit tests just sounds so inefficient. How did we get from there to using what we use today? Yeah, so be. It was really I. Forget the time it was wasn't really about replacing. The rabbit test is about five minutes Dr Cooper needed for these nuclear medicines, and and and when he did it, and he made these first crew preps, and they were, and he published that. That in nineteen, seventy two. He was actually he was actually on a grant from NIH so it wasn't something that was patentable. it was public knowledge at the time public information because it was a h grant that funded the research when he published that in nineteen seventy two I. Don't think he really thought anything of it and as the FDA solve the the value of this test replacing the the rather. Test. They also realize it would be the first time that a an animal model, but whatever be replaced with a regulated in vitro tests, so they decided to reunite the test itself, and what's interesting is even today where the only quality control tests that's actually regulated by FDA and we have the same license. Our licenses eleven ninety seven. We have the same licenses of. Of biologics manufacturer vaccine manufactured right, and we're inspected by the twice a year. All our products has to be submitted and approved by FDA. So we're extremely regulated in the space, which is also important when you think about new technologies, and how will a new technology be developed when we're so highly regulated and controlled and the amount of testing? That was necessary to just. Show equivalency to the rabbit, but long story short as the evolution into safe. When I ended up in graduate school, I ended up going to a into safe working for Dr Cooper. We were very small. I was just four of us in the lab. And you know obviously one of the main things we needed. Was Horseshoe crabs. Charleston was known for having horseshoe crabs, but two things about Charleston one is the population or or South, Carolina population is very strong in addition to the the the largest physical more shoe crab. There is the. Female one time that from tail, the whole link. The female was basically a meter. Long thing so very long right? YEP, so so they're big, so you don't have to handle nearly as many to get the quantity of blood we needed, but back in those days the crabs were were a nuisance. They were considered pass. they tore the fishermen's nets ups, especially the fishermen, and when they were bottom, dragging which was warhorse, pass laced for ill and cough. That was a byproduct that they just didn't want to deal with many times. They would just throw them up on the bank. Let and die compost them. Grind them as fertilizer the only other commercial applications for them at the time was to be used as bait, but again thinking about just the pure amount of work, and it just wasn't worth the fisherman's time to do it so again, not very well like creature that. So going back. You said you've. been working in the industry, your entire life and that is very unique, so can you? Tell me about working for for your dad and doing the early fishing long story short so when I when I left Graduate School I was given opportunity the company wasn't doing really well at the time, although the tested then mandated by the FDA to replace the rabbit, it was still a difficult competitive situation so again for us. It was tough. That's why they wanted me to come. I was one of the first ones to get you know three or four o'clock in the morning and go gathered the horseshoe crabs. From April fifteen to end of June. We bleed only when they coming up at high tides, and mainly they come up at high types after dark. Full Moon and a hot crabs. You're going to be there, okay. The southlands in thousands in early days we couldn't handle all the crabs that were coming up, so it'd be kind of surreal I can imagine a beach full of crabs. It is and we you know. We had very selective fishermen that we work with because again. They a lot of them just didn't see the value of them. It took us a long time to get the get the attention of the commercial industry. Get them to realize the value of the crab. Eventually we did I would actually drive to the docks during shrimping season If they caught him as byproducts I would just leave our car business card and say hey, call us if you catch any byproduct I'll come, pick them
From Rabbit to Crab to the Lab
"Today. I'm joined by foster. Jordan, the CSV of Charles Rivers Endotoxin, Europe foster has spent most of his career, working with and around South Carolina's horseshoe crabs, strange creatures, whose blood keeps US safe. He joined to discuss how his career parallels. The changing attitudes towards horseshoe crabs as well as the future of endotoxin, testing and recombinant technology. Welcome foster. Thank you join the conversation. So, let's begin with you. Can you tell me about your early experiences fishing for her? She grabs sure it was funny, you said. My. Most of my career actually I kid people because it's only job. I've ever had Your career then. I don't even I don't even have a resume so. The way I got involved with this was my. My father was an investor in a small company called in safe back in the mid eighties when I was an undergraduate student at Wofford College. And I heard him talking about it. I was studying organic chemistry, and he had partnered with the person who had originally used the test for pharmaceutical application. His name was Dr Cooper Dr James Cooper. He used it at John, Hopkins. University, he was a a radio nuclear pharmacist who is making nuclear medicines and the test at the time for bacteria. Linda toxins was called a rabbit powergen test.

Summer Stargazing Special
"Time once again for to be has to go on hiatus. You've got a couple of months on your own to explore the night sky, but before we say goodbye. We'd like to make a few suggestions. And I think it's important that we are going to have a totally northern hemisphere. Perspective here. Sorry. We're sorry, but we. We live in the northern summer. Is the Warburg time in our minds? July August that's when the heat arrives for the folks in Australia These Zealand. South Africa South America, we understand that these recommendations will not be quite as relevant, but we'll try to make the change what things you can enjoy as well. Nights with your longer nights. Yeah, many of the objects you see the same fix, but it's just it's colder. It's not it's not. It's not as fun to go outside and hang out. What can people see this summer? I think the most important thing to go out and try, and do is just observe our milky. Way Find Yourself a Hammock Alon Chair someway to dislike back and relax. Use Your binoculars borrow someone else's binoculars if you don't have any. And just explore that band of light that goes through. Is the summer triangle, which is AL, Tair Vega and the NAB. Really will help you find well. One of the cooler regions. Angle. Well we have the Ring Nebula not too far away from Vega. cygnus is home of Algeria which is one of the coolest double stars in the sky with one extremely red. Star in one extremely blue star that become visible with. Maser. Just just explore as starting point make no plans sub to figure out where the Milky Way is and just scandal lawn along looking for faint fuzzies, and and this is. For, you I'm not sure how good of a Milky Way view. You have there. I have a very good view to the sky, but I still it's worth heading out of town. To get away from the light pollution to get to those truly dark skies, and I know for a lot of people you look at the dark sky maps for the folks on the East Coast and it's it's a nightmare. You you will have to go, but but this is the kind of event that that if you have not experienced the milky, way with your own eyes or If you have not. And, you're looking for something to do this summer, it's a perfect. Like socially distanced activity, because you can take your family hop in the car plan and evening where you drive out. Maybe you're going to take a couple of hours, but anywhere on the east coast. You can get to dark skies within a couple of hours even from the core of New York City. If you're able to to drive this, some forest that are. A couple of hours away where you can see the Milky Way, no problem and just go. Plan a night of it. Leave a little late. Let people sleep in the car. While you drive out there and so you can arrive at like. In the evening. And Get a beautiful view of of the night sky, or set up early and then everyone pass out, and then have an alarm clock go off at like one of the morning and get everybody up to be able to see it. But. You should do this and it's. There's no reason not to camping is somewhat safe. Yeah, yeah, outside away from other people. Yeah, it's it's the restrooms you have to worry about, but campgrounds are open, and some of the primitive campgrounds are about as safe as you can get. Away from everything, except for the raccoons always hang your garbage up freight. Or lead in the car. But. Yeah I think that is great, and so what are the? What are the ways that people can get the most out of the Milky Way? Honestly the best thing that you can do is start out where you know where you are on the sky. This is where using the summer triangle in the extremely bright star Vega as a starting point can be a great way to get yourself oriented. Find that Bright Vega. Use It to figure out where the NAB is Cygnus the swan use it defined tear for Aquilla once. You're oriented. Stick your Benach in the middle and scan, and every time you find something, faint and Fuzzy. Pause and then either use your phone or finding chart to figure out what amazing Nebula it is. You found this time. This is the cool thing about just. Streaming through. With your binoculars is, you're just GONNA. Keep finding nebulous star cluster nebulous star cluster one after another. Is Is global or star cluster season, so you can see a in Hercules. There's a couple a bunch all scattered around, and because we're seeing them above and below the disk of the milky, way into warmer, able to start seeing the core of the Milky Way. These are all starting to rise up in the sky as well so again, so Milky Way and again. If you have not seen that, knock that off your list. This is your chance this summer time and Sagittarius and the heart of our galaxy is up in the evening for part of the summer, so it's perfectly timed for the family. And and this gives you a chance to say. I am looking at a supermassive black hole right now. You can't see it. It's black hole, but you're looking in the correct direction, and so that's just one of those. Moments of finding your place in the universe of I'm standing here on this planet, looking at the heart of my galaxy, and in that direction there's a supermassive black hole. When I was in Australia in. July so I guess it was around that time, and it was their winter, but it was still very warm, because I was fairly far north. You could see the core of the Milky Way just passing directly overhead, absolutely stunning, and then because where I was, the skies were so dark. You could see those Nebula? Does these little faint? Reddish patches in the sky when you looked with Benach healers, and when you took a picture with your with your camera, you got to see.

"And the lock, so the revenue from broacasters traditionally being the the major Anna. Last thing was the that changed and sponsorship and licensing outweighed Brooks. They also get money from world rugby, the Will Cup, as the jewel that that funds the willgame basically so last year when they hit the World Cup. They twenty million in compensation from world rugby, because they couldn't play. The same amount teaches that they would are the is, and then they geeks amount of the funds that will cut generates. Sponsorship and licensing as as as massive a og whose sponsorship comes to an end eighty days, Gatorade, all these brains, they leverage, and and promote on on a global scale yet it's Big Business Butts New Zealand's problem. Is that they? They spend more than they earned. I think they've made one sue plus in the last five years, so it's expensive business you know the players in a lot of money, and they have an agreement with thirty six point five percent of income show me. The money remained the scene from the film Jerry Maguire. Tom Cruise as a sports agent, negotiating a deal for an American football star, played by Cuba gooding junior. It's not quite so drama filled for the rugby stars, but they do suck out a big chunk of the income. The player payment poll takes more than thirty six percent of New Zealand rugby's. About Sixty eight million dollars in the last year and the topple blacks. They take a large share of it, but they say bring in the lawn chair as well. You know without the. US be wouldn't be able to operate the driver of revenue. They fund the game. Essentially they ticket sales their appeal to sponsors it that the absolute top of the tree they drive the revenue so while you've got a number of those players winning great money, an excess of one million, a year in salary went before you take into account their endorsement deals which they generally do on on the. The side with your agents and things they own a great work it, but on a global scale they could even 'twas much abroad in Japan and Europe, and the like so yeah that they take a massive chunk of their revenue, also put a law, and that does back down through the super rugby, and then there's the provinces the fourteen provincial unions. They get six, hundred, fifty, thousand eight. And a one off grunt from New Zealand rugby. That's been cut by fifteen percent. In the wake of covert but what you see pre, even pre covered, there was. A lot of things need to be streamlined. Kidneys and marketing, but it is a modal that needs to change in terms of the reliance on the lakes to fund the game. But how do they changed how to stop being so reliant on the OBE legs? There are avenues you can explore private investment as one. It's not A. GOLDEN TICKET BECAUSE PROVIDENCE MAN AS A. Anytime you invites somebody else until business. Who is looking to Mike Steak? Iverson amount of time? And you and you have to give up control, so it's a very. Space H superb same in new. Zealand, five teams have pardon investment, but it's a very control fishing with New Zealand rugby, still own and control the impact, the players and what they do is they sell licensing, so the Department of visas can invest in the law sensing of Super But the Super Bowl teams. Don't get a direct stake in the broadcast revenue. In the restricted to a certain degree and sponsors, they can leverage and various other things, so it's a that spices being challenged at the moment you know the super rugby teams to to attract more private investment to take some of the cost away from New Zealand rugby. They want more control. They want more flexibility what they can do, and that's probably we would see these rag. Be Welcome more. More private investment answer. The championship is a tournament or super, rugby or direct investment into these super teams, which would create a a bit of an inflexible of revenue. What kind of private and visas would she gives? We have seen in Europe as a company. Will one company in particular cold CVC capital partners they based in Luxembourg, and they previously invasive and the the Formula One in the lock. The boat up stakes and the English Premiership rugby, the pro fourteen, which encompasses teams from. Italy Holland's while Scotland's and South Africa. Financial Company yes there. Private embarrassments company. That's his invested in various things over the years we're. We're investing behind the change in media, Consumption Sports, so everything we do is behind that chain gambling dot gambling. It's change in how people consume content that can be designed companies that can be activation companies streaming companies technology. Identified rugby as a real growth area are also in talks to invest in the six nations. That's big money. You're talking three hundred million pounds some of these deals. That's one avenue. There are other companies. This silverlake news rugby has his held informal discussions with CVC ends. So like is another one. So for Laker a US based investment company as well and they. They have caused a sport previously with the UFC. There are a lot of opportunities out there and the spices, just a matter of navigating it where you get that embarrassment, but you don't lose total control when even then it's, it's a bit of a Fort Spice. What would be about it that they would want some sort of control and some area? If you look at CVC, they claims when they visited Formula One that they pillaged the. The Sport and they were very direct about the control, and yeah, it's I guess it's important to have a relationship. We you WANNA be on the same page with the of for the game. The other direction with these investment companies, a lot of them have expertise on and marketing, and let's be blunt about their. Don vs thing just for a laugh. They're investing for return on the. Investment so. This things and rugby, the looking to develop like a super bowl champions. Play the beasts of the north in that game could be staged Barcelona. Stadium and markets global broadcasters, and so these are the sort of things that you know CVC attracted so they see these potential avenues to grow the game to garner interest. No sort of deal it's imminence, but also feel like to a point. That's inevitable. Now he's GonNa be. I. Think we'll be very cautious about Any direct private investment and into the old black spruce say, but they would be a lot more open to. The at super rugby level, because it would take some of the costs away for them, and allow him to to do something with that competition, because at needs an major article, the sponsorship. With Aig going. They looking at a deal of around three hundred million is certainly sounds that way. The I. Think Gee. Sponsorship was with about one hundred and twenty million over five years..

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. As in lockdown very sick of my friends, telling you what yet? Another Netflix's series that Binge Watch like. I don't want to hear that. Looking twenty, four, seven I'm talking to people in new. 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.

"So the thing about any negotiation is that at the end of the day. You're still sitting across the table from a human being. 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. We're not cry baiting. I promise okay all right all right the crown is deeply sorry for its many breaches of Tateishi or White Tangy. The Treaty of Weitang units principles and for the fit that these breaches have cools two generations of Ronnie tiny. What up and Langi tiny automa- Keanu Leandra the crowd unreservedly. Apologize spending your of anytime. They are what am I wrong? Itani automic he knew and for not having altered negations to entirely or wire rack up. I just think New Zealand is incredibly brave to even play in the space. Because it's so much easier just to shut the box and I carry on even if it is flawed. Even though it's frampton frustrating it's it's a familiar to Junie of voting something. The crown will fold to developing a relationship that has mutual respect and trust as its foundation..

It's basically into us that we never spice to Brag but we're also meant to always tell it like it is and I find that really hard myself may mullins on the other. Hand is unusually deft. This she has this disarming honesty that let's just cut to the chase about anything and you you will like her even more. It has made her a great negotiator. Her friends know this about her her business associates and apparently her cousin because one day Mavis was on a trip to New Zealand's capital city. Which you just happened to run into this cousin. 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. Mavis knew it was about to come and to some degree had been actively avoiding very conversation. May this is Maree an indigenous New Zealander and she knew that her tribe was scheduled to sit down with the government for one of the most important negotiations in. Its history and negotiation for reparations. The more accurate word for tribe in New Zealand is e we May Miss E. We have been working towards this reparations movement for decades and at this surprise coffee meeting may cousin essentially was saying we need you Mavis. We need you to drop some of that jet set business life and come help the tribe come help. The every politics isn't always very pleasant. I'd rather be in business with the lines are pretty well drawn. So it's it's just a whole different ballgame. Did you say I'll think about it? I said I'll talk to you later. Wise Move Below.

The name polka comes from a model where that means flock of hawks all Windy Mountain. This is where Mavis is travis from her e we we see People Mountain People. We were people of the forest.

They were using leaves and seeds that now show up and Commercial Pharmaceuticals. Mavis remembers being sick as a little kid. Her Grandma was able to just collect ingredients from the forest poultices and potions things like that where you like now. I don't want to drink that. Grandma was it would you? You didn't really have too much of a choice. You sit down and have this this'll help your tummy for Mavis. Ancestors way back. The forest was everything but then the European settlers came F. I just a handful of settlers who wanted to tear down some of the forest to farm. Sheep Mavis Z. We figured great. We can charge these settlers rent. They'll tear down some trees in some small plots but the we can preserve the rest of the forest but then the New Zealand government got involved after a series of bad deals unfulfilled promises outright deception by the colonial government almost all of the ease land ended up in the hands of white settlers and within just one generation. Mavis his ancestors went from being landlords. Four the white settlers to being there laborers their farm workers and sheep shares because of their own government. Wow just happened so quick. Without regard you would not good partners. We're not sincere. You're not true Be Nice to have you say sorry. Damage Mavis ancestors had gotten everything from this vast swath of forest and almost all of that forest was chopped down when the land was sold to white settlers. In fact there's really only one big chunk remaining now. Who is all? That's really lift of the forest. This is the last real remnant. That's an one pace. Fukuhara is the last real place where Mavis can go to see and feel and hear what our ancestors would have experienced but infuriatingly it was no longer controlled by Mavis E. We Pukhov fell into government ownership and to add insult to injury for all of us as life New Zealand. Maps did not use the name Puka. Mount Price was mount.

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.

That was a place for people to ask of questions and get answers. But it's become a hub for New Zealand. Aviation folks quite a community. They even hold forum meets two or three times a year round different parts of New Zealand. Now the podcast called the wings over New Zealand show or the ones show went live in twenty eleven Kevin.

It was kind of a joy to see your your full bio Because it included some parts that I wasn't aware of so there's some more connections there that That I hadn't made so that's That's really great great just want to mention All of us here have been very concerned about the wildfires the bushfires there's in Australia and devastation that that's That's causing so dave. I understand that New Zealand has provided fighted some assistance yes Three about if inch ninety helicopters have just departed on a Rothstein. Nathan will see saving things coming to pick them up from hockey and They'RE GONNA be out of a melee service now our which us just at the Sydney and with all sides sent I think it's a two companies I think it was Abby engineer so we're going to be golf tee and there's actually already loads of Kief off on his over there as well and is more prepare into guy is just an absolute nightmare going to be the worst fosse's and the head Johny just the beginning of summer united. We've got another couple of months of this. It is not been gone since September. So yeah it's absolute disaster and New Zealand's also Bain really saying the effects of this because we've had the smoke from the ause drifting across the Tasman Sea which is a heck of a long way to drift and win gets it it's been with highs right across the whole country which is a believe Affected quite a view. All it's done canceling flights fears things. Not The airlines but proper pilots but two days ago in Oakland The whole sky would read Because it was filtering the sun it was that second filtering Assam site was like the world saying the fight is of the rates sky in Australia a New Zealand seriously. That just amazing. We know we have a lot of New Zealand and Australian listeners. And so our Our our thoughts are with you guys. Hope everyone is safe. Stays safe and We're definitely thinking about you guys. We've actually I just saw on the news just before we started recording. This is a big Bush fought just down on oaks by an Air New Zealand as well. And that's a lot of helicopters funny made at the moment and so it's a disaster all right well before we begin the news. Just a quick clarification because I well we were confused because well the national air and Space Museum website was a little confused about the date for this year's innovations in flight day at the Hoover Housi- center. It's always been the Saturday of father's Day weekend but David David North. What what did we finally learn about the date for this year's event well after some frustrated co-host I won't mention their names panicked and wanted me to find out exactly on New Year's day we discovered that yes? We don't know why yet I haven't quite found dat out yet but it is being moved to the Saturday after father's Day so it will be the twenty seventh so Max was right right even know that there was different places. We've always said it's father's Day weekend wallace year. It's changed but there's a lot going on at the museum and a lot out of it has to do with the renovation downtown etc so you gave the correct date Max. Last week of June twenty-seventh But that's great because that means that on father's day we are having family fest at the American Helicopter Museum so I it can get to enjoy both things and there's a possibility that the airplane geeks will be covering not just innovations of flight but the American Helicopter Capture Museum family fest. I had a certain guest visit. But we'll talk about that later. That was interesting and Made eight my boss very happy. Well then let's With that underway. Why don't we jump right into the news? Is everyone ready. Ready from the north from the West Rady from Dan all right. We'll our first story story comes from. CNBC US airlines are set for ten year of Prophets. More Than One hundred twenty thousand employees water want to raise Max west. What's going on here? Well in times of good everybody wants a piece of the action and I can totally understand it because there were many many many years were there were a lot of givebacks by Labor in the airline industry and I would imagine though. I don't know for sure that most of the employees are back to to at least where they were before. All the cuts occurred over the past two decades but still prophets have been huge airlines. We still remember. What was it just a year era? So ago I think it was American Airlines CEO. WHO said that the they will there will never be a time? The future when they will be unprofitable again which I think is pretty a pretty amazing that they would even say that But yeah I I think that we're probably see increasing pressure to rewrite contracts at higher levels and hopefully that doesn't lead to Any strikes. I'm guessing that Both sides know that That would be not very good for the American flying public to the airlines crowded because the strikes but I think that You know I think the employs. Oh He's probably have a pretty good leverage at this point to get a very significant raises. Now I was talking with someone about a week ago was telling me that at Delta some of the very top captains and I think he was talking about flying eight three fifties. were making as much as you want. I guess finally I get in trouble if he said that. If you were the top guys are making a million bucks a year. Now I know I was. I was stunned. That's about four times longer are four times more than I was GonNa Guess Anyway Certainly Whether or not that's accurate or not salaries have gotten much higher than I had realized they were now. Typically I think the some of the captains are looking at numbers numbers that are you know a third of that or or you know certainly half of that or less but apparently For the top folks man. They're really raking it in and it's not just about it salaries We we see here that the mechanics at American Airlines WanNA limit outsourcing to foreign bases uses for example which is that could be That could be difficult Where Repairs Pairs and overhauls are sourced is kind of an interesting topic in and of itself but Some some of it is logistics. Some of it is price and quality and so forth forth. But that's a a non-wage type of objective for the American mechanics Also the American pilots. Apparently you're looking for some improved the scheduling processes fewer pilots on call and more flexibility to change. The trips is that they fly on. So there's some You could say quality of life As well as job security as well as wage issues in in in all these but yeah I think I agree that the The Labor has kind of a strong position. This time around I mean we always used to talk about the sort of the cyclic nature of the industry and Throw it hasn't been cycling for quite some time now. Well same with the stock market has been up into the right for ten years and I think what I heard was. We've now gone for the longest period of time in at least modern history without recession. So ten years is a long time not to have any kind of economic hiccups and of course we all know that when the economy gets a cold the aviation industry industry catches the flu. Yeah yeah great guys. You guys just condemned us to twenty twenty six months from now. We're going to talk about our first recession congratulated. Both the has been the airplane geeks. PODCAST for twenty twenty. We now move you onto your next special. Who who knew that we had that kind of power? But you know we'll take it. What the heck all right? Well let's get caught up a little bit the seven three seven AMAC's crisis. I'll call it a crisis sodas dominic gates Writing in the Herald Dot net. Seven three seven crisis leaves Boeing badly behind in race with Airbus Dominic calls nine twenty nineteen a disastrous year. And he says twenty twenty. We'll be deep precarious so We we have a little bit of catching up to do Max would've you would've you see we talked about previously the Boeing Stopping production this month in January of the seven. Three seven Max but some other big things have happened as well. Yes in fact I read that I think consis spirit which is one of the big suppliers for Boeing in from Wichita is also doing Suspension of production. Apparently GonNa have some layoffs in Eh January as well too but the thing is that this has really knocked ed going for a loop in terms of orders I would say in the past. Yeah they they were pretty evenly. Split between Airbus and Boeing. You know one would be on top one year another would be on top another year Dominic points points out that through November. This year Airbus had seven hundred eighteen. Net orders while Boeing had fifty six net orders. Let's that's about about what fourteen to one ratio that's that's pretty bad and Airbus delivered. Seven hundred twenty aircraft Boeing delivered three hundred and forty five. Now they had about four hundred more Max's that were built that they couldn't deliver. And if you add those four hundred zero three seven three forty five Nia now Boeing would have shipped more more than the Airbus But I think The momentum has clearly shifted toward the The Airbus side even for Some of the suppliers I was reading recently about the The engines for the the maximum past the consortium between what Ge what the CFM engine. I believe anyway used to be about a fifty fifty fifty split when they ship their engines between the two but looking forward they're looking more like about a sixty forty split so Airbus now going to be a much bigger for your customer You know for the for the engine manufacturer. Yeah and there are some issues at least as being reported by the New York Times with the CFM. I engines They.

"I'm Laura Lynch. This is the podcast from the the December tenth edition of the current. 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..

"All right so like I mentioned earlier. I've been really digging Kiwi Slang this week and so here's another word. You can expect me to slip into our conversation soon. 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..

The ball in New Zealand here in the US the NCAA is under increasing pressure to reform college. Sports do you think if more top High School basketball players start going overseas like rj that that will put more pressure on the NCAA to allow college athletes to get paid. You know the NCAA did come out with sort word of this statement saying that they're going to allow athletes to be paid for their names images and likenesses but then there was a sort of asterisk if you will and if you read between the lines as I did it's not gonna be exactly what people think it's GonNa be. It's not going to be hey. Rj Hampton car dealership X.. Wants to give you twenty five thousand dollars it's going to be much more legislated and much more limited I would think so. Yeah I mean at some point the. NCAA is going to be pressured by somebody somebody I would think to change things but my experience with the NCAA is. They could be pressured for a long time before they actually act. And so what's at stake here for for the New Zealand breakers and for the Australian Basketball League the NBL. I Know Matt Walsh. 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.

"new zealand" Discussed on The Jason Stapleton Program
"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..

"New zealand was but i wonder if part of that is because of how people like barb were perceived on the show you know how they got vilified for taking out fan favorites or for doing certain things and as a result it's sort of affected their personal life i do feel like they thing about this cast is that a lot of them really do seem like normal people which might sound innocuous on paper but coming from someone who has been watching reality tv for going on twenty years at this point it's kind of rare to find in some shows nowadays of them just seem like regular run of the mill people that you could pluck out of the middle of nowhere and put them on the island but i do wonder what part of them might be saying in the back of their head like oh i can do this it's good for my game but how will this affect the way that it's shown on tv and the way i'm perceived by new zealand at home i mean definitely echo just so bob and just solo they lassoed getting rate the calls i guess social game and also strategy when she was she was strategic fullest in some of the prima you know she orchestrated the biggest blind side of the season sala so i think they described it as physical versus strategic the social in the three finalists streaming bob and then so to be obvious physical being tom and flow flow very clearly one out in strategic lost a lot and that might have just involved but that was the way that they frame the whole thing having these people big enough to advance kind of drive out of that hey it's a cave jake like we won't necessarily rake you over the coals in a jury format in that might take it in a different direction how are you feeling about the location.
