Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha
"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone. You in south america. So what we're beginning to see. Is they celebrate to ship in. New york is named spear pm. He's now taken for neo his packaged. It's not just in its physical formats but in the narrative that used salads and last year. I think it's early this year. It got the national distribution across the united states in whole foods. You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet. But then we've sent entrepreneurs coming here and repackage it into something that selling like a lot because it resonates resonates with the health and wellness movements the big trend going on in the

"Tensions with china. Australia's tried stash with. China has escalated sharply with savage new tariff. Sit hit our wine industry hard from tomorrow.

Gough whitlam ushering in a new era of cooperation between beijing and camber that was in nineteen seventy three. However in the past year in response to cambridge calls for an inquiry into the origins of covid nineteen. The chinese government has launched an unprecedented economic retaliation against our export industries. We mentioned one. Is bali. Beef lamb cotton lobster timber call and so on. Now you might ask not unreasonably. Why can't cambridge just restore relations with china indeed. How often have you heard the critics. Say if only camera toned down its rhetoric. Restored a dialogue rebuild trust with beijing. If the government did all these things did more to accommodate china all would be well instead where told cambra native sleep provokes trade partner by implementing foreign interference laws rejecting the wildlife.

And is it really fair to say that when there's trouble it's invariably the fault of either washington's hawkish policies or a net australian diplomacy.

In the larger context the world has changed. We have gone from the euro than domination of world history to us. The ancient century and australia is very lucky that it is situated in the heart of issues now but australia still behaves culturally a western society in an asian dominated environment. And just to give you one simple example but you walk into an asian home. Most times you take off your shoes. That's asian culture. This not western culture the take off your shoes now with decide their fall to live and work in sight and asian home. Do you want to try and understand the issue norms or do you want to work.

No AAPI Cabinet Secretary!? (With Madalene Mielke)
"Madly milk. Welcome back to the motto. Majority podcast today. Thanks so much. Appreciate having a having having you have me. Yeah absolutely well. We love our previous conversation back in episode. One one to talking about your career your life story from the very beginning you know your political career dating back to al gore's presidential campaign. I believe so. I encourage everybody to listen to episode one until after this episode to get to know your personal story a little bit better but today we are going to focus on. You know some current topics. Niger say before we get into that. You are the president and ceo of the organization. Asian pacific american institute for congressional studies or apec. Could you give us a quick overview of the mission and the goal of this organization. You're leading which. I think actually is a good background and foundation for other stuff. We're gonna talk about later on in this interview. Well absolutely so apex down at twenty. Six years ago by former secretary norm annetta when he was a member of congress. He founded it alongside on the congressional asian pacific american caucus k. pack which comprise of the api members of the us house and senate and so apex mission is to increase a representation at all levels of government From community service to elected office and have them participate at all levels of the electoral process. Gotcha so it's interesting that you mention norman. Mineta who i think is one of the first cabinet secretaries of asia-american designed in our country. I don't know the first night check on that. The first right okay. So yeah. I think he was transportation secretary. He was actually commerce. Secretary and president clinton's administration got it and then went to transportation under the bush administration. Gotcha gotcha he has this. Unique history of serving the first cabinet secretary serving both administrations both parties administrations. And really i think started in important. I guess trend of representation that is about to end with the incoming biden administration. And we're talking about as we are a few days before job and becomes president to be inaugurated. This will be the first time in close more than twenty years that they will not be in asia. American or pacific islander as a cabinet secretary in an administration whether it's democrat or republican for the first time. And you as the leader of a pack which is a nonprofit has spoken out quite a bit about a lack of representation. Could you share with us. What is your view of what is about to happen with this. Lack of representation in the incoming administration sure dodge. Obviously we have an incoming vice president. Who is a pi asian american. She south asian descent black vice president-elect kamla harris and also to cabinet level positions. They don't head up an executive department of which there are fifteen. And that's catherine tie. Vr and near attendant. You know the to cabinet. Level positions obviously have a lot of influence and i will just use the word sides the congressional hispanic caucus and the congressional black caucus as well as k. Pack when they sent a joint letter over a hundred and fifteen members of congress to the by the administration saying close to equal equal. And so that is that those were their words and so And so you know. I cabinet secretary heads of an executive department. And there's only fifteen of them and so when you think about that fifteen how's that diversity including asian americans. It doesn't because there isn't one of the fifteen a. I applaud the administration for their work in trying to expand diversity in having openly. Lgbtq individual leading agency And native american woman of half of the cabinet will be women so all those great things. So if you wanted to find diversity and not include asians in the fifteen than i need to ask you. What is your definition of diversity. Because we seem we've seen this play out and other places where the state of washington. I think they're department of education. Basically categorized asian americans as white so obviously a different definition of diversity.

What is Citric Acid, and Is It Safe?
"Of this week this week. We're talking about a food. Ingredient called citric acid off. Remember that in gradient labels citric acid. Yes yeah we see it all in a lot of different food products and people ask you know. Is this safe. You know in what is it. Actually where does it come from. That's a good question. Yeah so citric. Acid is found naturally in citrus fruit. So that's kind of how it gets. Its name and its the particular type of acid that we typically find in a lemons and limes and it's what gives them their tart sour taste. So you would think that okay cool you know that's from its. It's natural is from lemons and limes right But unfortunately that's usually not the type of citric acid. That's in your food products because it would take a lot of lemons and limes to be able to get enough citric acid to be used in the food processing industry so the in in and around The nineteen fifties. It was discovered that it could be made from a A black mold called aspergillus. Djilas niger in when you feed sugar to this mold it creates citric acid of black mold. Not your house exactly. Well you'd be surprised. How many molds are used in the you know to create ingredients they. I'm not sure if i wanted to probably don't wanna know but this is this is how it's made so it's it's actually a odorless colorless compound And up until the nineteen hundreds. We got it from lemon juice but then researchers found that they could make it from this black mold so that is the type that is used in all the food products basically a synthetic manufactured form of the citric acid. So so what are some of. I mean some of the properties of it it. It gives sign of that sour tasting You know flavor to certain things and it's also a preservative. Zoe think about a lemons and limes the citric acid and lemons and limes. You know how when you put If you have a cut open apple if you put some lemon juice on or if you have an avocado you squeeze on some lime juice and that helps protect it from browning right so it has a preservation property to it stops free radicals from you know oxygen stops oxidation so obviously the the symbol of of making it not making it but what it looks like as a molecule citric acid is citric acid citric. Acid right yes. The molecule is the same. Yes so whether it is found naturally in a lemon or whether it's produced through a chemical reaction by combining a black mold was sugar. The end product is this molecule citric acid. Yeah and so. There's a little bit of debate in the natural food world about whether citric acid is safe or not in foods and so. I just wanted to touch on that here. We one is the there haven't been any like actual clinical studies showing that there's any kind of negative impact from citric acid in terms of like negative impact on the body However because it's made from a mold there may be traces of mold in it in like you know and we have to think about well. How much of it is actually being used in the product and how much mold might you know. If there's a trace amounts of mold in that small quantity of citric acid. How much of that is going to actually ended up in the food and will it really have an impact. So they do. We do know that. Some people are super sensitive to molds may have a reaction to it so like if people have food allergies or sensitivities. That might be one of the things. They need to avoid So you know that would be something and if if you get a really good food sensitivity tests that might even show up on a food sensitivity tests citric acid so but i think for the for the general population. That's something that may not necessarily be a problem but of course now there's other considerations the the sugar that's used in this reaction with the mold home is usually from a gmo. Beat oh so now. We're introducing g. m. o. citric acid into a product right. So you know so if that's something also you're trying to avoid gmo's that that would be something to keep on your radar about reading an ingredient list. It's ten it's going to be a gmo Created unless it says. It isn't so you you. You're looking at a product if the product itself says it's a non gmo verified Product than it wouldn't be from that you know they'd be using if they're using citric acid in the product they might be using it from an organic source of sugar so there are different. You know within the food industry there's different levels of quality that you can get with these things so but citric acid in the body. I mean actually has benefits has some impressive benefits and functions so It it creates something called with a once. You consume it. It creates something citrate which is the first molecule that forms during the process in the body called the citric acid cycle. Which basically is the cycle that when know when you consume carbohydrates your body converts those into energy within your cells so that that molecule of glucose which is basically your sugar from your carbohydrates it goes through this whole cycle within your cells called the citric acid cycle and then it turns that sugar into atp energy for every single one of cells so he citric acid is involved that and we need it in our diet who
Trump's achievements in the Middle East
"Donald. Trump's foreign policy is all too often met with derision or simply chairmanship? Isn't it? The critics Maki's diplomacy and they pan the choice of son-in-law Jared Kushner as a Middle East envoy. However just dies away from the US presidential election. Trump has had a few certifiable victories to put in his closing advertising pitch to the American people. I'm of course referring to the peace deals between Israel and Bahrain the United Arab Emirates and Sudan these have been brokered by the trump administration well to tell us more about the significance of these Abraham. Cords. For the Prophet of Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Let's tune to Greg. Sheridan, he's foreign editor of the Australian Gregg welcome back to the show. Glad to be with your. Greg, your assessment of trump foreign policy generally. Well I think. The media has done generally around the world agree poor job on analyzing trump because themselves have become. So polarized there the all against trump or a small minority of the mural for trump whereas I trump has had some wins and some losses. stylistically he's been very unorthodox and at times on counterproductive but you can look back inside that what trump has been a bath is being creating leverage. The United States in K. relationships is put tariffs on China, and that gives him something to negotiate with Jonah He's put sanctions on Iran that. Gives him something that Iran wants to get rid of an in every relationship? He's got leverage for the United States. Now I think he's done a lot of specific things that have actually been quite good. You can certainly criticize the way he talks about alliances, but it these actions rather than his words quite a lot of the things he's done have been very successful especially in Asia and the Middle East is increased the US military budget more than any other president and American allies. Niger very happy about that the allies in Asia. Have Been Critical of China and most inclined to stand up against Jonah namely Japan India Vietnam Singapore Australia a couple of Damon our full hours course I very good relationship with trump role. Bilaterally, a lot of his relationships been very successful India and Australia. His administration has built the quotes the quadrilateral security dialogue. He has recognized the nature of the Chinese threat to the international system and do American interests better than any other president. Andy's moved the debate along at the same time. There's been a lot of chaos in his administration, the White folks terrible but I think he's had some real wins and I think he's done very well in the Middle East. Okay. We're talking about the Middle East You have argued in the astride newspapers I amount to a major step forward in the pace there why these Arab states altering their relations with Israel is it because of the mutual fee of Iran or is it because the US has leaned on the Motley? Well it's by the size I think Tom plus some other factors as well, but you've just got to pause. And model at the size of trump's achievement in and. To even out of these words, probably you know get you sort of condemned by all international relax plots society at. A. O. Over knocks the of international relations would would excommunicate you for saying it. But you know Israel has five peace treaties with Arab nations. Three of them have come under Donald Trump. He has said we back Israel one hundred percent is move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem tremendous symbolic sign of his commitment to Israel. But he has said we all sat back the security of the Gulf Arab states and are opposed to Iran and we kind to put sanctions on it. We think the nuclear deal when far enough now, the Gulf Arab states all agree with trump about Iran. But also items cells to some extent lost interest in the Palestinian cause. They're certainly not going to allow Palestinian view of Israel to be a roadblock. Now, they say Israel is a very good security Patna and they are encouraged by the US administration to might place with Israel if you just change in your ABC's ready national with me Tom Switzer my guest is Greg Sheridan foreign editor of the Australian. Now Greg you've been one of Australia's leading defenders of Middle East policy for decades. Trump came to power on an America I strategic. He's goal a piece to be to reduce significantly America's military role in the Middle East. We just talked about this grand aimed Iranian coalition that can contain tyron wants the Americans have gone given that America is now energy independent moralists isn't this retrenchment from the middle. East if trump is reelected, isn't that a good thing? Well. I think. It's makes Grill Tom. I think it is probably a good thing. The thing tonight is about trump is that on the whole he has implemented a lot of his foreign policy promises. If you put trump's record on the Middle East, all together it's pretty impressive. The US defeated Isis and he's decided that the Iranian. Nuclear deal is a very bad deal. I agree with him about that because it recognizes the legitimacy of Iran's nuclear industry allows enrichment of uranium a whole lot of other things and then allows in a very short period of time I'm sales to rent said trump said that's completely unacceptable. He wants a new and much better they'll, and in the meantime he's applying sanctions to Iran. has significantly diminished Iran's ability to cause mayhem in the region but that brings me to the point about what happens if Joe Biden is elected knicks wiggle the polls. Many of the pundits the betty markets point to a Democratic victory next week if a bottom administration comes to POW, Greg dozen that increase the chances of everything you've just been saying being wound back, I? Mean wouldn't Baden for example. Revert to the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. Well Eight. That's what he says he'll do allow. Kind of the problem. So the final point from the past there is that trump is not engaged in any new military adventures whereas even Bama engaged in the regime change in Libya which had absolutely eleven offers consequences now, Baden. It's very unclear. What kind of Administration Baden will provide his advisors at the moment seemed to be dominated by retreads from the second, I. Bob. Administration Susan Rice and Ben Rides. But then his party has moved along why for an elect- with Anastazia. Cortes and Bernie Sanders and the influence of the crew he says he's going to make climate change the center of all of his foreign policy I think. He may repeat a mistake of trump's, which is simply to try to undo everything his predecessor is done whereas trump has left Baden assuming button does win trump was left on a lot of leverage tramples. Authorized the elimination of the commander of the Iranian could force SOMAINI and. The, Iranians, like everyone else are scared of trump and they're. Constrained by not knowing what he's going to do even though he hasn't done any major military intervention, I don't think I've boughten will WANNA put more troops back into the Middle East or anything like that. The story of the last ten or twelve years really has been Americans will will say trying to get out of the Middle East and finding it very, very difficult to do so but Baden would be. Tremendously mistaken if he didn't try to capitalize on the successes, trump might I certainly don't think he's GonNa WanNa Talk Sudan or by Ryan will will the United Arab Emirates? Out of normalization with Israel, but will is administration base smart enough to keep it going with other Gulf states in trump was saying the other day that he thinks Saudi. Arabia can might place. With Israel, we'll that would been shattering. That would be I don't tectonic shift in the Middle East and Baden if he's smart or his administration as. Will keep going down that road and then God bless them. They can get all the accolades for forever success they won't themselves. But if they get back to the Paragon the John Kerry paradigm, you've gotTa somehow miraculously solve the Palestinian problem before we can do anything else Well, I think it could be much less effective than trump.
Trump and 2015 McCain comments
"Donald trump is vehemently denying allegations made in a shocking Atlantic piece, which claims that trump refused to visit a US military cemetery near Paris in two thousand, eighteen because the fallen soldiers were in his words, losers and suckers. Now I say it was a shocking piece but to be honest with you not so shocking when you consider all the different times, he transparently brazenly said terrible things about members of our military who happen to disagree with him politically. But here he is denying it and then I'll give you what the facts are to think that I would make statements negative to. Our military and our fallen heroes nobody's done what I've done. With the budgets with the military budgets with getting pay raises military it is a disgraceful situation. By a magazine that's a terrible magazine. I don't read it by disagreed with John. McCain. But still respected him and I had to approve his funeral is president. We lowered the flags I had to approve that nobody else I had to approve it when you think I'm just thinking back. I had to approve either Air Force One or military plane. To go to Arizona to pick up his casket and I approved it immediately. So. Let's take a look at a trump tweet from two thousand fifteen because there's always tweet. This is from July two, thousand fifteen where trump referred to John McCain as a loser. I mean he tweeted an article about himself calling John McCain loser. So he was bragging about it also when McCain died in two thousand, eighteen trump refused to lower the White House flag back to half staff even though it's become customary for presidents to sign a proclamation calling for the flag to remain at half staff for members of Congress until the day of interment, and then one other piece of evidence to Kinda refute trump's narrative in that video take a look and I said somebody should run against John McCain who has been. In my opinion not so hot I supported him. I supported for President I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost he let us down but he lost. So. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like to lose. But. But Frank Franklin we're get doing. He hit me he's a war hero. He's a war hero he's a war hero presumed captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to tell you. That was from twenty. Fifteen event in Iowa. So. I don't know how to talk trump supporters anymore. That's why I'm done with them in my personal life and everywhere else because the guy. Ridiculous Liar. Does he know that he tweeted on John McCain's loser does he know he said on? Massimo you guys all remember when he said for people who weren't. But earlier, he said, I don't like losers referring to John McCain. So why did he come out yesterday and say no I never malsor. Each just unbelievable he's capable and so if you say, Hey, know what I love people who are Liars Okay again I mean do you boo okay. and. And look again. I. Blame the media. And Because So many politicians lie and they never call it out. They'd never they enabled politicians lies for decades. So eventually, you got one that. So over the top that even. Though. And remember you guys remember it took them like a couple of years before they finally gather up the nerve to say, well, what Donald Trump said, there was not correct. I'm forgetting the name of the CNN analyst who finally just said it and then went on this three minute rant fact checking trump. Fact checking trump's RNC speech but he started that three minute rant by saying trump lied he's a liar and I was like. Is. This CNN what's going on? And so yeah, you're right Jangling the fact that that excited me because it's so rare I think mean something and we'll get you the name of the person I'm talking about because he deserves all the credit I'm kind of blanking right now but look I actually think with this particular story and a few others. The media has done a decent job. So for instance, business insider had a very lengthy list highlighting all the different times, Donald trump attacked members of the military right and fallen soldiers. So I wanna read a few of them right now in fact, as you guys can probably remember in July of two thousand, sixteen trump attacked the family of captain who mine con a slain soldier someone who died. Fighting for the country dismissing a speech his father Kaiser Khan made because he said Khan's mother hadn't been allowed to speak the family said she had not spoken because she too emotional to talk about her son's death. And he just kept going after that family. It was it was honestly disgusting in October of two thousand seventeen trump forgot the name of slain US Army Sergeant La- David Johnson while he was on the phone with his widow, Johnson was killed in an ambush in. Niger. While while in active service. Misha. Johnson said the call was trump made her cry and trump told her that her husband knew would he had signed up for in November of two thousand Eighteen Fox News is Chris Wallace asked trump about his thoughts on retired Admiral William mcraven a former navy seal been. who was behind the mission that killed Osama bin. Laden. He interrupted Wallace and said Hillary Clinton. Fan. When Wallace continued trump did to excuse me Hillary Clinton Fan trump went on to repeat that mcraven supported Clinton which by the way he hadn't as well as former President Barack Obama and said frankly wouldn't have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that. I mean, there's so many more examples Jank but I mean I want to give you an opportunity to respond to some of them. By the way Daniel Dale is the CNN reporter that I was referring to earlier go ahead. So we've seen him call the generals, losers, thousands of times and so. I guess people are shocked at that. He would go and call the fallen soldiers losers as well, and not just stop a general's or veterans or captured soldiers. But is it really shy at all? He calls everybody lose them in his denial. He called the military people who were the sources for this story lowlifes and liars. If you're trying to deny that you'd ever call anybody in the military losers you shouldn't then turn around in your denial and call them lowlifes. Buyers. So I look. Landing brokers story with four sources. Then Washington Post back it up with three sources and the Associated Press also found sources all saying the same thing. I actually want to read a few excerpts from the Washington Post piece. Again, these aren't the same sources. These are additional sources who also spoke to the Washington Post about. Their experience with trump and what he had to say about fallen soldiers in one account. The president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such a high value on finding. Oh. This is so disgusting finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught in deserved what they got according to a person familiar with the discussion. Okay. That That part of the story like I don't know all of it is gross but that part hit me the hardest because he just doesn't value people's lives and think about losing a family member that way and knowing that the president of the United States does not care to find their bodies. A trump believes people who served in Vietnam War must be losers. They hadn't gotten out of it according to a person familiar with the comments. Trump also complained bitterly to then chief of staff, John Kelly that he didn't understand why Kelly and others in the military treated. McCain, who had been imprisoned and tortured during the Vietnam War with such reverence isn't he kind of a loser? Trump asked according to a person familiar with trump's comments. So. Look at Donald Trump says, this is outrageous synonymous sources. Donald Trump also, just a couple of days ago said that there was a plane full of thugs who are gonNA come and disturb. His, acceptance speech and caused violence and when asked, who told you that he said? I can't tell you basically it's anonymous. So. I'm supposed to believe your anonymous source of a trust me to go. You would know trust me. But we're not supposed to believe now it looks like about a half, a dozen military sources for that talked to three different publications all saying the same thing and all saying things that are very similar to what you said before and by the way yesterday show before the Washington Post Associated Press stories came out I said I guarantee you. that. He thinks that they're suckers 'cause he out of be fake doctor's note because his daddy bottom one and he thinks they're suckers for not being able to get out of the war his spoil less and it turns out. That's exactly what he said according to the military sources that heard him say. And remember when sources are anonymous to the general public that doesn't mean that there are anonymous to the reporters. Reporters have to vet their anonymous sources and corroborate what they're saying So maybe they're anonymous to us, but they're not anonymous to the reporters.
Cyber Safety, How to keep your identity protected using mindfulness and practical tactics
"How you doing Sandra? Hi. How are you doing? Thank you for having been your show. So, matty here. Right absolutely. So we're talking today about identity and cyber. Theft here. So give us a little bit idea on what that's about what does identity theft what is cyber theft? What does all that stuff? Of course? Let me start why I started. Niger, any may be. Definitely will get into into whether they cybersecurity are cybercrime or identity out. That okay with you. Sure. So I was returning a many many years ago I was returning from these things. Colombian. So I mean, the plane were landing in Miami and the pound announces that Homeland Security. Were boarding the plane. I course to ask for a handed to the to the agent and at the time I, head out these. It was relocated recently to the US. Ns I had my passport to the agents. then. He's next thing I know I'm the only one that being score of the plane by the two officers. And enthroning to the room you the. Famous rooms. that. Are In airports in I, don't know what's happening. Out. I'm about to connecting fighting my husband's waiting for Chico. So ten hours later and handed back my passport and is revoked. Few weeks later I mean Venezuela my native country and I'm trying to process my. Mom to processing again, you sign I had a lot of support from Maya Turks from my former employer journey. So we are in to again and. It was interesting officials. They kept asking me about China. Why we're doing China. China who is your contact? Like I never been in China. beating know what they were talking about. Some how when? S Model China go to hold of my information and was smuggling women into the US using my identity. Yes. So humid slate, you know everything I convinced, of course, a smuggler I gave my new visa and a back home two weeks later and returning from Euro my job requirement to travel a lot. And as we are going to. Control. I. Give My passport booth. I'm right back into that room. Because I have to. The, real me over and over that for six years. Yeah. So when I going everything was Chinese I. Mean it was really crazy at nobody wanted to travel with me a united in my almost wanted to travel with me. and. Finally. made the citizenship, my aspirin I changed my. Everything Courses Okay and at the time I was working tonight not. Having in the industry for over Twenty Years Community? It non no it was identity. It was not in the news. He was not like every day right now at breach or cyber drive or this or that. Back back in that day in that time, it wasn't so I couldn't make the connection. So few years later, I changed my career and I join cybersecurity cybersecurity? Area. Industry. And I realized what happened to me, and what happened you know when someone takes your identity with Tony, personage you for their gate. and. You know eat my corporate career I did that I? was very passionate about. Training and education awareness and Allison Park job that I enjoy the most. So I wanted to Redo it at a bigger scale as I left my corporate all by did your original question about what is at Know when stolen takes something from you. And wince when they break into your life, and that can be very dramatic experience and it can be for many reasons financial reasons it could be for. Someone inside your company that has. Either made a mistake or by attention. Jober that is you and ninety. Attack you could be for like in my case, there was a vying for for that criminal to have my identity so he can use it for him. So there are many life happens. It's It goes on all the time. We don't always hear about identity theft on the news I might do commercials about it. You know when the advertising different products, but it's something that a lot of us don't even really hear about. So how does that happen? How does someone? Get your information. So you can happen. Through many different things that can happen through your social media, it can happen through your email can happen through when you give out your credit card in a restaurant. It could happen when when when you ride formation with with a doctor. Often, office I mean, there are so many ways. Jury information can be obtained. We share a lot in social media share. Many different things. That are personal and that that is one thing that can use. Of you do that. You know sometimes we don't hear the news a lot about identity issue i. think we should do a because there's a new victim, every two seconds. A new victim I mean someone right now? has just being victim of identity DOPP and there's different decrease appointed. You know sometimes we someone let's say takes your credit car. And data charges in your credit card and probably most have had situation and the bank context you. Just have to get a new credit car. Scare of it. So it's a degree of identity theft is in the financial. Hesitation of identity theft, but it is. Your credit car on and bought things on your behalf. But it wasn't as faithful as many other situations are obviously. More were personnel or or moines more invasive.

A COVID-19 Vaccine: What You Need To Know
"Joe you have been reporting on the pandemic for months now and specifically one crucial part of this story vaccines right I think vaccines are pretty much the way out of this. Most people agree it's been so far the most successful tool in preventing infectious disease. But, of course we don't have a vaccine right now, and so that's why we're doing all these other things like shutting things down and social distancing and wearing masks in washing hands, etc, until we do have a vaccine that safe and effective and available right, and we're basically hiding from the virus in the meantime right, but I've heard that vaccines have traditionally taking years to develop. So, what are we doing to speed up the process well quite a lot actually and just to give you one example. Example a couple of weeks ago. I got a virtual tour of a vaccine facility in Baltimore. What you're looking at here is one step of multiple step process. It's run by a company called emergent bio solutions, and Sean Kirk overseas the manufacturing and technical operations and what he's doing, he's he's pointing a cell phone camera through a glass window into another room with several large stainless steel pieces of equipment. You can see the banks taken out. Talk you, so what's going to go inside? This bag is actually. Believe it or not insect cells that have been modified to make proteins from the coronavirus. That's going to be used to make the vaccine. The technicians are loading this bag into a fifty liter stainless steel vessel. That's part of what's called a bio reactor around the outside of this is the vessel itself it provides. The heating cooling. And with the inserted agitator, the mixing the cells, spitting out a protein that's going to become the corona virus vaccine. All this is being done with the strict standards of the Food and Drug Administration. The vaccine is from a biotech company called Nova Fax, and emergent says they're ready to make hundreds of millions of doses of it on a short timescale. Hold up Joe. Because I thought there weren't any approved vaccine's yet. So what's happening here with this manufacturing? Well, you were asking what's going to speed up the process and this is part of the answer. They're not just waiting to see if the vaccine works. They're doing what's called at risk manufacturing it. They're getting ready to make hundreds of millions of doses of vaccine. And when they finish testing it, it might not work okay, but the government says we don't have any choice because we can't wait until we find out of it works to start manufacturing it. Because that'll just add months and months to the process, so they're getting going right away. Sounds like kind of a gamble, but we don't really have much of a choice. Is that right well? That's what people are saying. I mean it's a gamble that health officials say we have to make if we want to have a vaccine that's GonNa be around in time to put a stop to this pandemic. Okay Today on the show what you need to know about the virus vaccine from how it works to the challenges of disturbing it to. The world. This is shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Joe Palca. Let's start with some vaccine basics I read. There are over one hundred vaccines in development for this corona virus, and these vaccines are trying to do the same thing trigger an immune response from your body without actually getting you sick. Yes, I've been thinking about it as a little bit like showing a picture to someone and say if this person comes to your door. Don't let them in and and that's essentially what you're doing with a vaccine. Right and I guess there are a couple of different ways. Occur virus vaccine can maybe trigger that response. Tell me about a couple of them. Well one thing you can do is you can actually kill the virus. What does that mean well? It's not really alive, but let's say treat it with heat or formaldehyde. It's no longer working and you inject into somebody well. It has the shape of virus and the look of a virus, but it doesn't do it. A virus does so the immune system can respond to that. That's kind of how the polio vaccine that Jonas Salk came up with. Or you can take the virus and modify it so that it's no longer able to make someone sick That's basically what the Sabin Polio vaccine did. It weakened the poliovirus. Immune system saw it made all the right responses, but didn't Cause Disease Gotcha. Since those two, there have been married of different ways. It's just the idea of getting the Munin system to recognize parts of the virus so that it'll have an immune. Without actually making somebody sick all right. Let's talk to about why vaccine development takes so long because we mentioned earlier, it's normally very step by step process and I'm guessing that's why it takes a while right well. Yeah I, mean there are lots of steps in the process. First one is to make sure that the vaccine is safe. You're GONNA, be giving it to a lot of people, so you WANNA. Make sure it doesn't cause any problems on its own important, and then you want to make sure it has an immune reaction immune response, so you measure the cells that people make are the proteins that they make from the immune system after you've given them the vaccine. And then you want to make sure it prevents them from getting sick from the coronavirus. None of these sound like easy tasks I gotta say Yeah No it's. It's all time consuming. It's all difficult. It all requires a lot of people and patients and coordination and You can't really speed it up I. Mean if you WanNa, see if something's going to work for six months, you kind of. Of have to wait around for six months to see if it's GonNa work right, and so with this coronavirus receiving manufacturers trying to compress the time line, but this takes a lot of money and a lot of financial risk, so does anthony. FAUCI of the coronavirus task force thinks we can develop a vaccine by the end of this year, because the government is helping these manufacturers financially through. An warp speed. Here's vouch speaking with NPR's Rachel Martin. It's risking hundreds of millions of dollars, maybe a half a billion to a billion dollars. The government isn't destined that taking that risk way insane precede, and you'll save several months, so joe aside from this. What else can be done to move the process along well I mean one of the things you can do. Do is just get a lot of people working on the problem at the same time, and then you can also do things that will make sure that the regulatory processes smooth so the food and drug. Administration is coming along with you in every step so that they don't have to review everything. After you've done it, they can review everything as you're doing it. But. This idea of having a lot of labs involved in something that's going to really be helpful and I talked with Dr Lewis Fellow over at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School his team is developing something. It's packed with micro needles that contain tiny bits of the coronavirus, and the Niger needles are so small that you don't even feel them, so you while slap on the patch and wait a few weeks and boom, immunity corona virus. Virus Patch. It works if it works, but this is just one approach, and I think that they will basically feed off of each other This is GONNA help us to do these trials both quicker, and to find vaccine. That's most effective when we start to be to be able to compare these different approaches seven Joe. Let's say sometime in the future we have a winning vaccine or a few vaccines that are fully approved. How on planet, Earth Are we going to distribute them like who's who is going to get it I i. m Evi one vaccination. Are Those people born on March tenth? This is a scene from the movie contained I know we promised we wouldn't play this movie again on the PODCAST, but. This scene is kind of how vaccine was deployed at least in the film. So Joe is there massive lottery drawing in our future to decide who gets the CORONA VIRUS VACCINE? I don't think that's going to be the actual way that it's going to be ruled out. Okay. Most of the people I've talked to suggest that it's going to go first to healthcare workers and people who are on the frontlines of combating the disease, but then you want to think about the sort of the societal infrastructure. I mean who makes things go and. I think a number of years ago. People wouldn't necessarily have thought of delivery truck drivers says people who are crucial to the infrastructure of the country, and yet more and more people are now relying on deliveries to get stuff, and so they may be considered critical people who need to be vaccinated or their people who are at high risk for the disease. But the fact is that at some point, we're going to have to figure out a way to get this to everybody. Right Seth Berkley, for the CEO of an organization called Garvey. The vaccine alliance put it really well. We're not going to be safe as a world unless everywhere save so even if you know, we had parts of the world that would have a low spread or no spread. If you had large reservoirs of the virus in other places, of course, you have a risk of reintroduction I like that we're not going to be safe. As a world, unless everywhere is safe. Okay, last question Joe. Will the corona virus vaccine be one that changes every year because the corona virus changes every year. If we know that, or will it be more like the measles are the polio vaccine? We don't know we don't know which I could give you a better answer. But the answer right now is. We don't know so. There's not enough experience with this virus yet to know for sure, of course what's going to happen? It's possible that they'll be a different version that they all need to make vaccines against for every year. or it's also possible, and this is probably more likely that. They'll need to be boosters from time to time, maybe not as infrequently as measles, but may be more frequently that some so that the it's not clear how long the immune response that you get from. A vaccine will work so. The trouble is just I mean it's so new. The understanding of this virus that the people aren't saying
Ancient Trees: Living on the Edge
"I hadn't research so when I started to do a research program I thought I need to find a place in southern Ontario which is far away for Hudson Bay. I had to find that place that had harsh growing conditions so that I could carry on with Mike curiosity about how plants living environments is exclude most other plants and took up and eventually I found that the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment run basically from northern New York state. All the way through a terrier over to Michigan had not only Lichens mosses and other plans but had these scruffy trees growing on edge of the cliffs. And that's why did you need to the ancient forests of scar. Of course. No one knew that they were ancient time. In fact in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. When I started the transition for like two trees I phoned. It was indication with the Ministry of Natural Resources asking if they would be interested in sponsoring research all on the ecology of the clips of escarpment and they wrote back and said well they were happy and by wanted to waste my time studying slips because he knew they were there. I have reminded them of that almost decade by decade. Since because Would they were disparaging where those little tiny trees growing the cliffs saying to themselves? Well Hey don't count compared with normal burnt tall forests. A scruffy vegetation on the cliffs didn't count so they could equal sign. Nothing is there and ironically but twenty years later when I was trying to confirm some of the early discoveries planned to do a sabbatical trip to France and I wrote to professor while palliate and asked him if I could come in at the cliffs in France and he said it was almost it was almost He said it was happy to host new but of course all their clips are there and in fact After we did the very cursory survey of the cliffs that he had we found the oldest living plants in France amid came Figaro He became famous because he then started a big research program. Events of living trees that stirred to grow for the Romans had left France shoe and it it freaked him out and everybody else said that he was a retrospectively so happy to have been rob his credit he was happy to say that to their discredit. Ministry of Natural Resources in Ontario. Even though they rode the ancient tree hobby-horse for years they never went. Service it oh by the way. We're sorry there was something there after all. Jeez wouldn't interesting trajectory on something that like you just interested. People wrote off and I grew up in that region looking at the Niagara Escarpment. And you see these trees they are small and I'm lucky that I grew up in a time where this was starting to be realized. And when you finally see the ages on some of these things that me. My jaw hit the floor. It's it's incredible to think of something that old in such a tiny package. Because you know you see three is or something like that in someone's yard and they're huge there but they're you know a couple of decades most but what got you interested in this idea of harshness. I know you said it started with Lichens. But to think about plants in harsh landscapes I mean you see them in asphalt you see them in gravel roads. Plants can handle it. But what made you want to study that you know? I think we probably need to have a shrink as part of the because what I've learned forty years during this is your personality. This is probably infected you right now to your personality guide to research ways that you don't even realizing now maybe this may be historical revisionism. But I think when I was a kid growing up I was the tall skinny guy that was always beaten up from school. Felt like I was the underdog in I always loved the idea of supporting anything in fastened with anything that would win by getting out of the way of the means of the bullets and those were often things cryptic where the things differently so I always tried to do things that other people were doing because then I wouldn't have to bump into that bullies that I didn't play sports. 'cause I was always the last one picked. I mean so does psychological component to working on high stress organisms whether they're plants or animals. Interestingly I fought against those buildings for years after ten years of working I actually got a H- site visit from the natural sciences and Engineering Research Council. They said by the way. We don't like the fact that you're working on rocks come and if you want to. This was a big incentive to move into the trees because they said if you WanNa have continued funding from us you have to work on something more real something more important like trees or higher plants but not Rocks Cup while many Lichen colonies several thousand years old and they said no one cares boy so with that encouragement lappy. We had all these people working in Allergy and we said okay guys. They're the writings on the wall. They don't want us to work on Lichens. What else grows beside them? That might gain some respect and one of the Grad students at whether trees growing on the same rocks. I mean maybe maybe we could just switch from the trees a A year later that we discovered on some of those cliff as trees that the rings were incredibly tight. We we had no plans to studying trees. We were simply looking at the way. Human Disturbance Influence the structure of these base forests. So to what could that. We decided a good thing to calculate was productivity enough to calculate the productivity tree. You have to divide its mass by age. Okay using architectural models. We calculated massive all the trees in climbed area in that massive all the trees in inclined area and then took core samples to find out how old they were Kazan. That would give us an estimate of productivity lifetime. Cry Tippety when we did that. You've got these core samples from the cliff face trees and we couldn't see any rings at all So then sanded them up more carefully. And that's when we realized reason why we couldn't see the richness is that they were too small and at that stage we with either. These trees are putting a tree ring every time it rains it because we were like an experts. Had We know the yet you know much about the biology trees at the time so what? We have a bunch of samples and said the sent them. Ed Cook It. Lamont Doherty in your you know in Palisades. Yeah Yeah just. North of the city in Ed. Cook wrote back and said Yes. Those are ancient trees where to find and I said well I can see Toronto from where they grow the sitting right on the edge of the escarpment facing the biggest city in Ontario. And it looks like some of them have over seven hundred rings in them. Whoa and he said well you got a good one expert instill as dendrochronology in the world. And so he he and I started to collaborate with some other lab partners and we did quite a bit work after that on the dendrochronology the series of the Niger. Escarpment but it was all accident really amazing. We weren't initially curious about ancient trees at all just wanted to see if disturbance influence productivity turned up the did disturbs make it. The trees grow faster because it was competition but that became a side issue once we found For us in a place where no one expected to find one.
3 UN peacekeepers killed in Mali
"The UN is morning three peacekeepers who have died in Mali after their vehicle drove over an improvised explosive device on Sunday. The attack against a convoy of the integrated stabilization mission for Molly or Minnesota in northern KC region seriously injured four. Other soldiers. Who were also from Chad improvised?

COVID-19, Chinas wet markets, and bats - is it US not THEM?
"And now we see Larry's outbreaks in the last few decades that are related to animal eating in China. What happens in China? What people do to animals in China how repercussion beyond Chinese border? Let's Professor Deborah Jar. She's author of animals in China Law and society and we're going to take a close look at the animals that find themselves in China's wet markets today and into the curious origins of this Almighty pandemic. I have to side. It's beyond anything that I could have imagined. It really is at bats. Worst CASE SCENARIO SCOTT AS FAR as I'm concerned and that's from someone who's worked in the area and someone is trying to increase the awareness that this kind of thing would happen. It seems to have happened so rapidly and we seem to have been totally unprepared for it. She infield he's with the echo health alliance as their science and Policy Advisor for China and Southeast Asia regions eventually and environmental scientist. Hey knows he's infectious diseases.

That's caused this cove. Nineteen pandemic one being that it came from the Wuhan Institute Veraldi Attain Hayes. Worked closely alongside. There was a big a lot of discussion about conspiracy theories either about manufacturing losses biowarfare about escapes from large raise. Excetera truth is trying to fiction.

Ease in bats and scientists have benches with bats have taken him all over the place. All over Italy David Heymann is professor of Infectious Disease Ecology at Massey University in New Zealand. And Yeah some people selling hundreds of back carcasses who to Yeah people wearing Jin as a libation. A bill offering to the bats in a cave. And there's no doubt about it is that's the galling but what I want to know is why beds in particular how the so many viruses that are so deadly to us and yet not to them and to do that. We need to get denied. That's a bit better which Mike Up About. A fifth of the world's Mammalian species the phenomenal mammals. Actually they're the only mammals that truly fly the evolutionary. Oh they've been around many tens of millions of years from fossil records. Basically they live live everywhere on earth really apartment article so that enthused New Zealand out here Hawaii three to take so they're very well adapted the lots of different spaces and the really good for the environment. So for example predation pests. They prevent crop and forest damage. Because I eating insect predators suck the hugely ecologically important. Certainly the the fruit eating bats are great seat disperses Italy to see elite fruit the C. Pass through the bat schedule intestinal system and then it puts it out in a new location. So that helps maintain I. They also pollinate Important crops because revolved for so long. There are many plants for example rely on best to do the pollination and all the seed dispersal for them. David Hyman Ward. Mike's bats such a distinct. Such prime reservoir for novel viruses that can then subsequently crossover and infect other animals than they known to humans. What is it about the laugh of bets and better species so there are many hypotheses one is just the sheer diversity of bats around the world so therefore they have a diverse range of ours is and we think that they've been around for a long time cheaply long lived species relatively speaking and I will live for years and tens of years. Not like rodents that live within a year. They're gone. They will like humans in cities. I mean they form very dense colonies with thousands in a small space so that's ideal for infection spill to transmit from one individual to another Peter Virus Heaven and what's more abet colony might contain multiple bat species so viruses can adapt and crossover between them. He catching a ride when the bats migrate onwards so then they concede infection into new columnist. These multiple networks and communities about spending vast lots of different viruses between them probably lead to them being great host for these viruses. You look at the things I well I if Laras then this is way are would do well it. All of this going from built the interaction. The numbers I felt the citizens either Tom etc etc and the range of viruses bets carry all that originated in bats is mind blowing. Yeah there's extra diversity and it's not just trying of ours. Is that seems to be the same for paramedics of our season. Rabies probably had bats and even things like measles and canine distemper virus. Which we now and paper will be familiar with. Lissa viruses herpes to ebola influenza. A Hendra Nipah that most viruses. That bets incubate don't seem to make bets seek rabies. Seems to be one of the notable exceptions. Why don't they get seek? You didn't quite a really hard to study some of the hypotheses of that because bats have evolved to repair the muscles for example that the tissues that damage during his flight is really intensive. They vote repair. Mechanisms enable them to repair cells for example and versus damaged cells and. There's lots of consequences to that. That doesn't tell the entire story. They ran the immune system. That means that they. They seem to have constant arts they. Immune system switched on during the dice and also they. They fly everyday that I get the core body. Temperatures are effectively. What we do if we're sick and feverish so if you can imagine that we as mammals we have to similar response when rail one hypothesis is that when we do our normal response to viral infections. Then actually these viruses evolved in that sort of environment. And they don't mind so they carry on replicating the things that we do to suppress viruses don't suppress the bat farces. But that's just one. Hypothyroidism is a few others clever little biological systems in a molecular clock analysis that said that Corona viruses and bats had been coexisting for at least ten thousand news probably hundreds of thousands of years and possibly millions of years so these are very robust and sort of long term. Evolution are of these farces within spats and the issue is not about changing to become infectious. Hatha generate to patriots getting from bad to the purse on Wallis taking him. Bats doing their own thing. There's no pro-woman's each bridge what we call an epidemiological bridge wants that bridges. Creator so the agent can get from the reservoir to the purse. So you pay. That's when the trouble starts and there is a perfect place for that Epidemiological Bridge to be built.
Staying Strong Through the Storm
"We welcome you to another uplifting today which I you. All are all ready to hear called staying strong during the storm. Because I know y'all might need a little bit of inspiration during these interesting times. We're living in Some of it. Good some of it bad and we're here to help you keep your eye on the Eagle. A you know keep flying. Hi Soren Higher. No one things to do to help you with your health your immune system your physical your spiritual wellbeing and to not take your eye off of the The light I guess is a good way to put it so Doctor Lewis. Can you tell us today a little bit about what you want to talk about and where we're going with this? I know we have a lot of questions. That are Very RANDOM THAT. There's a whole lot of different questions. Random a lot of different people but fortunately some of these questions came before all of this covert nineteen went into play so There's some questions that are not everybody's scared type question but some some other questions about some other health issues because a lot of you're probably tired of hearing about this over and over which I know we all are so We're GONNA try to mix it up a little bit and we're going to entertain you for a little bit like some of these artists have been doing that. Had Been so uplifting so Dr Lists. Can YOU UPLIFT US today? She always to me to be scared that I can't you know fulfill your fantasy of uplifting I guess yeah I've been at a lady yesterday because You know she was science. Da Da da Da. Da She is so full of fear. And it's like her and her husband take massive amounts of stuff. That's why both of them looked twenty years younger. What they are and they have energy like crazy. They really do look twenty years younger than what they are and I said you know. I can't believe that most people think that a virus is a lodged a lot stronger than God and it obviously offended her because she was full appearing chose to stay there. I said you're doing so much for it. Just take your stuff ask God to bless and move on down the road and you know now if you're not doing much or you don't know if you're doing the right thing you're taking sketchy stuff then yeah you might should be afraid. I just never been much to fall into fear. What the other people you know if the crowds doing and I'm a little suspect you know when I say you know this couple was taken some really really really good stuff. There's another couple of came in with a couple of products that they didn't buy here and I said yeah well at brands mediocre on a good day and I said what about this and I had to give him a lesson loyalty. I said well number one. It's Sonoko Balmain. The same thing I told you was wrong with your other thing you were taken from the world famous. Dhaka's Sonoko BALMAIN'S B twelve. It's not gonNA work. It has such low absorption. Right I said you know God rewards loyalty and is like a slap them in the bay so as long as you're making good decisions and you're getting your stuff from a trusted source and not even necessarily me but there's a lot of people making half way decisions and forgive me Pete up in Missouri for going in rabbit trails. It's IT AIN'T GONNA change but I'm going to talk about it. It should be out of your head. It should be out of your spirit and you know it gets really really really. I think as a You have to learn to master your relationships and I bet Jan is going to get in that in a minute but you've got to all this fear negativities because you've failed. Yes I said it. You failed to take charge of your emotions. We have a choice to think. Good or bad and I've said this before I've been called Pollyanna more than once and more than one way and it was not meant as a compliment his wall less. Just wring your hands and worry a Mica podcast not a podcast Janet. What am I GONNA do? She's fill me in a rocking chair worrying that she's up things I hope. I hope my grandmother can't hear me from heaven because I'm talk about her. You know she didn't or damn bit of good Sept- Gabar arthritis and wrinkly crippled hands from the worry. You can choose to be happy. I love my grandmother lowered Mr Cooking but low. She worried anyway. You ought to. You ought to see the video. Wherever JANET PUTS IT. She puts facebook. I'm not sure facebook. You know the thing about it is and and I've talked to people in foreign countries especially remember this conversation. I had with guy. Denmark is that will you? Americans are so stressed because you have too much stuff and you worry about your stuff and then I quoted a Chinese proverb that says man with keys has many worries and he said exactly if we're not over commercialized here in America and I'm sure this covert nineteen and all the fear and history is going to bring good about. We're going to get steel. We're having to stay at home. We're GONNA get still and know that I am got if we're not so worried. Then why does America who has about five percent five percent of the world's population but we snort percent of the cocaine? I'd never done cocaine. I know most of you have not but you know we. We consume vast amounts of alcohol. Janet not don't we're really Kinda latte drinkers and only talk about it? 'cause I'm Baptist. And they told me not to. Fifty percent of the world's cocaine goes to five percent of the world's population that scary. And you have to learn to deal with stress and most of its just in your head in your spirit you know there. There's the it's it's how you think. And one time. There was a guy that was trying to embarrass me. He said to another Francis. Everything comes easy for Stephen is like I said No. I said Yeah you're right. It does but it's because I expect to win when I go to these ducks unlimited. Nra BANQUETS ARE ALMOST ALWAYS. Almost always win a gun. I can't hardly go into casino without coming out ahead. I'm more times than statistically possible and I don't gamble much but still it's about having an attitude it's about Spiritual you know. You'll be in spiritual so what I'm going to say is when we're in fear and doubt you have to turn to your source you've gotTa Know God's bigger than a virus. Oh Good Lord yes. There's things you need to do. Yes it this is a deal yes it is but as I said in the last podcast a wise man foresees danger and takes precautions. That doesn't mean that we're supposed to wallow in our fear So the easy way to do and why things come to me so easily and it does look married to you know. I'm blessed you have to focus on what you want rather than what you have or what. You don't want the people who are sick. The ones that focus on what it would look like what it would feel like what they would here if they were healthy. Those people get well much much more quickly than people that write me a seventeen page letter on how bad they feel and and fourteen years of history yes. I want to know that stuff. But throw in these supplements. Do what your medical doctor says you know with the drugs and that kind of thing and expect good things You have to be inspired now. Look what's the word of inspire would be spirit. Then you have to find enthusiasm. The root word of enthusiasm I think this is. Latin is in Theo's which means the spirit with an or the Niger with an and I got up this morning super super early. I didn't sleep much in the first thing that popped in. My head was how grateful I him to have. Somebody buy me that so full of joy. So that's why we should be. She's over going all okay. He was talking about our dog. I mean I'm not sure we thank spur. Assume it would you? Because you're right you know if you think good thoughts you get good things it's Kinda SORTA sampling people overcomplicated. So you can choose joy or negatively. Yes I know. We have bad things happen. That kinda throw us for a loop too but sometimes you just have to distance yourself from eve or ignorance if they choose to remain stupid and reject you So you have to look for something well. The only reason we won't anything in life is because we have a perception that it will make us feel better

Atheist Experience with Jenna Belk & Phil Ferguson
"Actually curious to hear from Arthur from Canada. It says that you're going back to Nigeria to visit family for the first time since coming out and they have a plan to save your soul you. WanNa talk about that. Oh Yeah How you guys doing hi. I'm sorry this is Jen. You're on with bill you guys doing. We're dead head death perhaps but we're rate actually amazing. I'm the first caller. But thank you so I came to Canada about five years ago and I'll like religious back then. You have an argument with me about Jesus Christ. I was like that too. Yeah so I came to Canada and visit my eyes open because physically you know. Niger is just like Half Christian half Muslims. That person is a demon Wow but came to Canada in Other cultures and Just engines you know and people who don't just believe in anything and I was like. Wow under such good people and I'm like couldn't all bags are going to help anybody that doesn't believe in? Jesus is going to hell so it doesn't make sense. Is that question in everything on Danino here. I am today. Congratulations this. This was a well. I've been for about two years you know. I kinda down for five years like I said so anyway So now I'm going to Niger and I mean I came out to my parents because I I went to dislike Phase where I was just mad at everything I feel like half my life. Most of my life was taken away. Yes I thought this exact same way. Yeah so I was just pissed so anytime anybody wanted to have a conversation about it. I would literally be in that conversation and just argue and thanks to your show. I learned to lots so I just euro documents land from the show and also from my personal research and older who have it but at this point. I'm just like you know tired of it now. I'm going back home where my dad. Who recently disown me? Because of it he came back. And we're going to have a conversation here on this show where you know you usually say you know you don't have to have the conversation you can change the topic and whatnot the different the different by belanger where You cannot say no. Who's taking things I? I know it's kind of hard to explain. No going back to visit for a couple of hundred visit. I'm getting back to this. How long are you visiting? Nigeria for about two weeks okay. Who will well one possible strategy that no one else would tell you. 'cause I'm just weird like that is it's a it's a. God Damn Miracle You're born again just short circuit the whole damn thing. Go back raised. Jesus whatever you gotTa do and then two weeks come back to Canada. Oh Yeah I mean. That was assaulted. Wow I didn't think that solves it? That's like Dowdy like going to church and all this money devotion shit I mean. You're you're making the effort to call and you're worried about not even going on the trip because you already know how bad it's going to be. I mean you. You know your family better than I ever will cost setup for me they. They like to call the Pasta to the House villa. Like you could just fix all that right before you go just put on facebook that you're born again and make sure they see it and go and go to service to go talk to the pastor benefit if you want to have real fun turn on the recording. App On your phone record the conversations and bring it back with you. We'll we'll we'll put him on the show. Maybe Oh okay. Yeah I mean you gentlemen have a different strategy. Mean well okay so so to each his own. You know if you WANNA do that. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa Stop View but you want to know what I would do. I know I couldn't personally do that. Because I'm just the kind of person that I can't misrepresent myself like I switched from being life to pro choice Pretty quickly and it took me a couple of days while I was like. I have to come out about this because everybody knows that I'm pro-life and I feel like I'm living under this false pretense if I don't tell everyone and so I couldn't do that but in addition along the situation that I'm in right now with my family You know if we're getting together for Christmas or actually. I have my families getting together for a tea party soon. It's like a tea party. The women on my family have an annual tea party. And it's actually it's actually really cool But when we have these family gatherings if they were to tell me I mean. They haven't told me that they're going to try to change me or bring a minister and to try to deconverting or anything and I still have trouble going back there simply because I have trouble having conversations with them at all Because of this this toxic household that. I grew up in and I'm not saying that it's toxic because of the people but because of the system because of this this Dynamic about how this authority figure and and everybody else has to do with. There's only one way to do things so I already have trouble going and seeing my family without some kind of exorcism threatening me. You do realize that if they do some kind of exorcism things can go very wrong and they have lon-wrong for people in the past won't so what do you think they're gonNA. What are they going to? Do they just going to have a sit down? Talk is not. It's not surprising excess. Because yeah we know that though you know yeah I know The I call it coach by came from the this basically Christianity. It's called but like they're probably going to sink down and Does a bunch of things like Jesus loves you and You know need to come back to those. What about all these? Are these things that Jesus did for you. He made you go to Canada. I made you have the job. You have Blah Blah Blah and How good you man that he sent you to Canada. Yeah Yeah Well. One of the arguments. The only the only thing is that the only thing is that temper so sought and I can't say no because doing let me. I'm going to be living with them. So I'M GONNA I'm GonNa have to have these conversations where he's always going to end up with US fighting. I was just two weeks. You know what I mean. That's the thing is do. You actually have to go. Can they physically force you onto that plane crew? I want to go tonight for other reasons. No religion okay. I haven't seen him in five years so it would be worth it to you. Would it be worth it to you too? If let's say goes horribly as you can imagine because I don't know your family I don't know how bad it can possibly get so imagine the worst case scenario is it worth it to you to go and I would. I would go with that. Well even wanted to go because you know I mean family friends and actually I don't miss the country and all that but you know I I can definitely understand where you're coming from where it is probably know what but like you know. I guess I have to deal with it. You know I mean if it's just GONNA be uncomfortable put put up with it. Try to be as Nice as you can try to change the subject And live through it as long as you're convinced there's really no physical harm or mental harm. That's GONNA call okay. Then you know then I just run away right right as long as you're safe then I would say that whatever you feel like you need to do is what you need to do. You know if you feel like you need to go go if you feel like you know to something holding you back. I'd say go with that. You know a you know your family better than I do. Yeah yeah thanks. I'm well I'm okay. By one last it will take time thing. Okay so So like I said when I when I come back and everything I really I realized something about myself. Not just the religious aspect just from everything I I kind of question everything right so something happened like my dad. He asked me was the we knew that was was he asked me on a family group. Satchels like What did you think about what you think about God? I physically because I was so angry that time I was like I don't I don't keep it in about Jesus and I don't I don't I have no reason to believe that. A good exist I and then she instantly said Consider yourself disowned But then back in the day when I hit the word disowned. It was his big thing. Yeah but then when you say this time I was like okay. You know what I mean that I just don't I kind of. Don't give a shit about a lot of things now. Yeah and I'm worried that I mean the food. Great like I feel free the right word I feel free from like even thinking about things like hell all well even like disowning. That was so big to me on my dad. Just me yeah go to shoot me anymore. How do you actually been disowned? If they're paying for you to come back Home Oh you came back. Came back around okay. Well that's good. That's really good. I actually had a similar situation where I had Moved in with a boyfriend right after high school and He was a Catholic boy But we moved in together and I was disowned as well and for me it was like a big deal and then it was like you know what whatever I'm GonNa do whatever I WANNA do. I was taken back and later on something else happened. The family and my dad was like. Oh if you do if you tell anybody about this I'll disown you and then at that while you know what so the question is the question is like this feeling of not really caring by love things? Yeah and as the disown thing and I know also the Stuff like coconut people is so easy for me to just kind of people you know. We haven't this conversation and you know you talk about what I do. Respect my views. I'm like it's so easy for me right now to do. Yeah well. One question of can turnaround a bike to ask. Will you know? Maybe Yeah Sometimes I. I'm I'm a believer that there are some times where it's necessary to burn bridges and the one time just to just to pull out an example out of nowhere. When I was waiting tables I kept bouncing between restaurant and restaurant in restaurant and I kept going back to this restaurant back to that restaurant and after a certain point I realized I really don't need to be working in restaurants anymore so I need to allow myself to stop creating these. It's so easy to go back into it. You know so. It's kind of up to you when you need to burn bridges One thing maybe does your family think that God is all powerful and can do anything. Oh yeah definite Then you should inform them that You will genuinely seek out God and let him do his job and they can't possibly do a better job and they might actually be trying to thwart God's will and that It's up to him and they should Let go and let God do his thing and God God will fix you if he wants to come back with an argument like well we to do our parts might. You're GonNa reminds me that you can do straight assist them on them. Have you looked up street epistemology yet by Through Anthony MAGNABOSCO channel on Youtube. Have you heard of that? It's basically a way of questioning to where you're not telling anybody anything you're asking questions and it's a way of kind of exposing to the person that's doing the talking that they don't actually know what they're talking about at times And sometimes they do know what they're talking about but this this kind of questioning will basically exposed if they if they have an idea of how they verify things that are true or not.

And I don't know if you know this, but the technology industry has a reputation of being kind of of boys club not like it used to be. There are a lot of men on stage events, and there's a perception of that. And certainly when I, you know, twenty years ago when I started doing this that was definitely the perception. And here you are the MAC product Niger and not a member of the boys club true. This is I mean, I don't wanna make something that that is a like a defining issue or something. But clearly, it's something that you've had to think about about being a woman in a increasingly visible role at a technology company. That's very visible. Yes itself. Yes. That's true. So first of all apple is, you know company that prides itself on having a lot of diversity. And there are women at apple and who are great strong leaders and coming to apple I was able to. Pretty immediately. Find some awesome women role models for me at apple. I think that a lot of times when you talk about women in tech. You talk about women needing to help other women come along in tech. And so then then then there'd be more women to me being women in tech is all about finding role models and then being a role model..
