But this this is when you get a fucking moyer and you sue the holy hell out of anyone and everyone nicklaus's employer businessweek sue them. The building managers sue them. The building owners sued them the security company. Sue them till they can't see anymore. Sue everyone sue the people who designed the lock on the elevator hatch. Get at least a million dollars per hour spent in that fucking box. Nicholas pieced out to antigua for eight weeks because that is what you do. After spending forty one hours trapped in an elevator with a functioning camera trained on you the whole time eventually businessweek fired him because he literally wasn't coming to work. Which like. I guess. I get but also come on guys have a little class. Nicholas ended up settling for an undisclosed amount which he said was barely six figures. He doesn't really talk about the whole thing much. And here's the thing. No amount of money would have solved the existential crisis and depression. That nicholas fell into after this. Imagine going out for a smoke and not coming back for two days and finding out that no one was particularly alarmed by your absence. You're a housewife. Whose husband went out for a pack of smokes and didn't come back until next week for eight hundred time and you're just like very goes again. Kids your dad won't be back till monday. Unless you're in that ship storm of life it's really astounding to learn you might be that inconsequential. Not only did. No one seem worried that he was gone but his toolbox of a co worker was mad at him. I mean the very people whose profession it is to survey the building and ensure it's safe and secure for all inside. I didn't even notice him and they had the feed right in front of them. I imagine it would be tough to come out of that situation and feel valued and cherished. I suppose it could have been worse for nicholas white. He could have been trapped in the elevator with the building on fire. He could have been trapped in the elevator with a shitty coworker or a birthday parties of little boys. He could have actually died. I mean that last one is highly unlikely it is extremely rare to die in an elevator we have. lsi which i assume is pronounced. Lsi and not. Kalisa otis to thank for that. In the mid eighteen. Hundreds otis was annoyed at how often elevator rope seemed to be breaking. Sending passengers plummeting to their deaths. There's not a ton of data on how many people died in elevators back then but it was a lot so many that was like fuck this shit. He invented the safety elevator which had fail safe in case the ropes or cables did break before otas if the elevator rope broke. That was it for you. The whole elevator plummeted to the ground hurling and crushing the people inside it.

"Slept fitfully on and off. Keep in mind. The alarm was still going. He smoked a cigarette interesting by the way that the elevator company had the foresight to lock the escape hatch from the outside but not to install a smoke detector at some point. Nicholas pride. The doors open again. He then tried to chip away at the cinderblocks guys. Can you He tried to chip away at a cinderblock wall with his fingernails. How fucking insane had he gone by this point. He didn't even have a set of keys to use as a tool he went back to sleep. He imagined he was a bug. He was having auditory hallucinations because of the alarm ringing away he had no idea how long he had been in that elevator. Had it been hours had been days. Finally finally voice comes over super chill and goes is someone in their nicholas pops up and says yes and the voice on the other end goes. What are you doing in there. Do you have any. Id i can't let this do you have any idea. Are you fucking kidding me. That's your first question the alarm going off and you ask this guy. if he has ide- i can't apparently nicholas couldn't either. He yelled back. Just get me the hell out of here. It took another forty minutes for the maintenance crew to get there but at that point forty minutes must've felt like a few seconds because nicholas white had been stuck in the elevator for forty one hours forty one hours. That's seven hour shy of two full days. It was sunday evening when nicholas emerged from the elevator into the lobby exhausted. Hungry thirsty and traumatized. Remember the co worker. Who was in the office with nicholas when he left for a smoke break remember. How at one point nicholas wondered if she was worried about his abrupt disappearance. Remember when i wondered if she had tried to find out where he had gone if everything was ok. Apparently she was not worried about nicholas. She was so not worried about nicholas that instead of trying to see if everything was okay with him when he never came back from quick cigarette she wrote an angry note and taped it to his computer screen for all to see good luck Lady businessweek seems like a great place to work. There is a beautiful and haunting time. Lapse video of nicklaus's forty one hour ordeal in the elevator. You can find it on youtube. Oh wait did i not mention. There was a security camera on him the whole time. There was a security camera on him the whole time. There were security guards stationed at the bank of thirty two.

"Treatment became widely known in the West, the W H O for many years Refused to endorse it, Mike luncheon reports. In the bloody battles of the Vietnam War. More than 50 years ago, there was a common enemy, causing devastation among troops on all sides. The malaria carrying mosquito, such was his concern that the North Vietnamese leader, hoochie men sought help from his communist allies in China. And so began a secret medical research program to find a cure for malaria. It was dubbed Project 5 to 3 to the back Then everything was so secretive, only government approved. Scientists could do this research and we were banned from speaking about any of it to anyone. Professor Lang going food was among the 500. Chinese scientists. Assigned to the project, which was launched by Chairman Mao on the 23rd day of the fifth month of 1967. Hence project 5 to 3 professor Sir Nicholas White is a malaria expert from Oxford University's Center for Tropical Medicine and Global Health, So they were pragmatic. They just talk anything that had, Bean said, too. Have worked in malaria or might work in malaria and testing it on one of the things that had bean recommended formal area was the extract of a plant that we would call in the West. Artemisia annua, and they called it Jean how the scientists began testing Artemisia annua, also known as sweet wormwood on infected live mice. With progress was faltering. Lee slow China was going through a period of intense political and social upheaval following Chairman Mao's Cultural revolution. But the scientists didn't give up on eventually, Professor Lang Ling food says they made a significant breakthrough. I looked through the microscope and couldn't see any infected cells. We couldn't believe our eyes were where we sing it wrongly. Well, it was there a problem with this particular mouse. There wasn't a problem on the country. Their results were amazing. But it will be several more years before Professor Lang going Fu and his colleagues got fuller results from testing on humans, and we're able to say that their cure was effective. The first communication too, If you like the outside world, or at least the first generally disseminated communication was until 1979. And then it was in a very Delight for the brief paper of I think five or six pages. That research paper was published not in Mandarin, but in English, says Professor White. The fact that it was written in English, I think clearly indicates that China Had realized it had got something quite remarkable. Andre felt confident to inform the rest of the world. Not that the rest of the world were particularly believing the distrust between China and the West was mutual. 1981 professor White. By then working in neighboring Thailand traveled to China, where he met the project 5 to 3 scientists. I don't know what the official position was. But one of the leading doctors is it was Professor Lee Joe Quiet, and he was very open and he gave me some of the drugs, he said. You know, happy to try and provide them to you. So I didn't get a sense that they were withholding anything. But the W. H O and the West remains skeptical for many more years. I think we wasted probably 10 to 15 years, which was unnecessary. And if we had just Taken the Chinese drugs at that time and then help them to make them to the quality and purity that we require. For general use. We would have saved a lot of lives. Was my clench in reporting. The media watchdog Reporters without Borders, says 50. Journalists around the world were killed in connection with their work during 2020. Annual report shows that two thirds of them were murdered in countries not at war. Rebecca Vincent is director of the international campaigns for the organization. I asked her what she found most surprising about the figures. I think actually, that the figures, although lower than in some previous years are still alarming, considering that much of the world was on lockdown for many months this year, and therefore fewer journalists were actually out in the field doing their jobs, so the fact that 50 journalists could still be killed is quite shocking. 68% of the journalist that were killed this year. We're in countries that are not at war. Countries that are meant to be a peace and 83% of the journalist killed this year were deliberately targeted that has sharply increased over the past few years. So it's no longer so common for journalists to be killed in conflict zones. But we're seeing a very deliberate increase of those who are being Sauce out, targeted and murdered. Many of those air investigative journalists on Iranian journalist was actually executed by the state, wasn't he? Absolutely. That was one of the most horrific cases that stuck out for me this year as well. That was Ruhollah exam, who was executed by hanging in Iran sentenced for corruption on Earth And we also saw some particularly barbaric cases in Mexico, such as Julio Valdivia Rodriguez, who was found beheaded in Vera Cruz and others in Mexico were hacked to pieces some really barbaric acts. They're so not only has the violence and killing against journalist continued, but the means in which this is being done is becoming particularly barbaric. On that really only speaks to the fact that this has been allowed to happen for years with impunity. So those who are doing this are now becoming bolder in their tactics. What about journalists that were detained? So this year at the end of the year where we're looking at a situation with 387 journalists detained around the world in connection with their work? That figure actually increased the number of journalists arrested increase during the first few months of the global pandemic. So we're looking at March to May this year, there was a four fold increase of arrests of journalists during that period, which shows that the pandemic certainly didn't stop those who wish to detain journalists for doing their jobs. In fact, some of those journalists were those reporting on the pandemic. And at the end of the year, 14 journalists were arrested related to their coverage of the pandemic remain in prison, and we also saw a 35% increase in women journalists detained this year. Many of the new cases of women journalists detained are in Belarus following the unprecedented crackdown there that continues, we hesitate to put the profession of journalism on a pedestal is Mark it out as something intrinsically heroic but tell us why journalism has mattered this year and does always matter, so journalism absolutely always matters. And it's not just a question of the rights of these journalists to do their jobs and you know, to exercise freedom of information and freedom of expression. But it's the right of the public to access that information, and that's an angle that doesn't get enough attention. When journalists are silenced when journalists are targeted and made examples of the impact is on all of us. All of us not get less information in the public interest that allows us to make informed decisions and hold our governments to account. So what effects are democratic processes around the world. And I think this year with the public health implications of that it became immediately obvious how deadly actually the lack of access to independent information. Can be so we argued earlier this year that had their bed, for example of free or press in China had those who attempted to report on the very early stages of covert the whistle blowers who spoke out courageously in the earlier days. If that information had gotten out freely, possibly a global pandemic could have been prevented. Certainly other states would have been in a better position to prepare and to react, and it wasn't just China either. We saw a real targeting of journalists in Iran and other countries where there were early high figures of Cove. It really states that worked to suppress accurate reporting on this, So this year, I think the fact that it impacted our health. All of us around the world has really highlighted how important it is to protect and support independent reporting and the people taking the risks to get out the information because it is a question of all of our rights. That was Rebecca Vincent, director of international campaigns for reporters without Borders. With the BBC World Service. This is news hour..

"Is this happening? New episodes every Tuesday. Wherever you get your podcasts as I said before we already know a ton about the trump administration's Ukraine scheme in fact everything we're finding out? I think the Democrats would say is kind of icing on the impeachment cake. There's one thing we still have some questions about which is just the exact justification and the mechanics of that hold. On the. Nearly four hundred million dollars congressionally mandate and authorized military in Ukraine. Which of course is a key part of this entire scheme one person who could shed light on that? Is the White House acting chief of Staff Slash Rush Office of Management and Budget Director. Mick mulvaney person who already said remember in front of cameras there was a quid pro quo but has subsequently refused to testify before the impeachment. Impeachment Committees in Exclusive Reporting The Wall Street Journal furthers. The case that will vein is directly implicated because the president's personal appointment on all this of course the legendary Gordon. Insulin looped Mulvaney by email on July nineteenth day before the president was initially scheduled to speak to the Ukrainian president. Mr Solomon emailed administration officials including Mr Mister Mulvaney and Energy Sector Rick Perry. Here's what he wrote. In that email quote I talked to the President of Ukraine. Just now he is prepared to receive the president's call. We'll we'll assurance that he intends to run a fully transparent investigation. And we'll turn over every stone. Mister Mulvaney responded. I asked the National Security Council. Set it up for tomorrow. It's important to remember the military Ukraine is the big CUDGEL. That's being wielded. This and Mick Mulvaney appears to be right in the thick of it for more on that I'm joined by Peter Nicholas White House reporter the Atlantic who writes that with impeachment trump is quote surrounded. A mulvaney strikes me as a sort of unique figure here because of how central he is in the whole thing because he has also been subpoenaed because he tried to join a court case to get a court to rule that whether he should come out there and seems to have in some ways the most direct exposure for people not battening. Donald Trump Giuliani. There's one more reason why such an interesting figure here is that trump has been talking to AIDS exploring the possibility of firing firing him. It's been asking him whether Mulvaney is really up to the job and can help whether this impeachment crisis so Trump has been told. You know maybe this is not the right time. Maybe no so so much that you'd necessarily don't necessarily want to alienate him making any enemy of him so for many reasons. Mulvaney is really at the center of the storm. Yeah that's a point. Here that I think is is is worthwhile to note there. From the point of view of the courts and precedent about who can and cannot be subpoenaed by Congress. There is quite a distinction between between active and former members in terms of the assertions the executive minute making them Mulvaney being out of a job would would his ability to contest weaken. That's an excellent point. The White House is pretty broad. stonewalled this entire investigation but one thing they've said is no acting official can testify because those conversations the person would have had with trump would be privilege but if that privilege we is weakened if a person is no longer working in the building persons all over in the West Wing. The the White House is hold it control over that official as attenuated. And that's the situation with Lyndon Johnson had an expression of clean it up a bit for TV. We don't want somebody outside the tent pnn. We want somebody inside being out. I think that's the way to think about Mulvaney at this moment. You know Mulvaney he's not the only one right. I mean one of the crazy things here and I think you wonder how much this is on purpose. And how much this is just a byproduct of everyone attending the presence of sessions. But you have Pompeo Mulvaney and vice president pence Rick Perry all of whom appear to be at some way shape or form connected to the fundamental thrust of the attempt to extort short Ukraine here. Yeah you have all the president's men I mean there are people who are acting at the behest of the president so Congressman Congressman. Well true we spoke to earlier. I think had a right. I mean the person really at the at the the origin of this is Donald Trump. Who has I guess? Yes Suggested that he might be willing to testify. Although I'll believe that when I see it we've got some Reporting about a Mr Merck Sandy. Who gave a deposition on Saturday? It's the the first time that someone from Olympia has assess defied. That of course is one of the offices that that a Mulvaney runs along with being the chief of staff. Sandy testified that he'd never in his career rear seen a senior political ownby official assumed control of a portfolio in such a fashion. That's referring to his boss political appointee Michael Duffy. Who Pulls it away? He also testified that he raised questions to the ownby general counsel about whether the move violated the Congressional Budget and impoundment control seventy four. There are further questions for the folks in this strikes me. Well well you know. The sad thing about this Chris this is not supposed to be a politicized process carnage approved. This aid is supposed to be delivered. Why wasn't it delivered? I mean is. It wasn't about the law so I think Oh. MBA officials rank and file career. Officials are wondering you know what is the holdup here. This is not a normal process. This should have been delivered. evered wasn't an apparently wasn't for domestic political reasons. The president was concert. Wanted some leverage over your frayne to get some dirt on Joe Biden. And you know there doesn't sit well with some point. The point is an important one because part of the argument to justify the hold as a kind of conditionality. That's part of the natural part of policy which I think doesn't isn't quite persuasive at all is overridden by the fact that the aid was already appropriated was signed the law of the Brunson. I mean Olympia supposed to just essentially dotting is crossing awesome that tees and then cutting the check right exactly I mean so. I think that's why these officials are important and that's why Mulvaney to get back to your original question is such an important witness Because because he is the acting director he really does understand this budget stuff And you know the this was the cultural. This was alleged that trump had to extract the commitment. He wanted from Zelinski the president of Ukraine. So for those reasons Mugabe's important witness but also embiid has been put in an impossible position particularly rank and file queer. People were the lawyer. Yeah that's a good point Peter. Nicholas thank you very much Still to come. The Republicans tried out so many arguments against impeachment. You might think they've party..
