South Africa halts AstraZeneca vaccine rollout
"South africa has halted its rollout of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine just a week after the country received. Its first million doses. It seems the vaccine offers limited protection against a new variant of the corona virus. That's now dominant in the country. Salim abdul karim co-chair of south africa's ministerial advisory committee on covid nineteen spoke to a world health organization briefing yesterday. We don't want to end up with a situation where we vaccinated million people too. Many people would have vaccine that may not be effective in preventing hospitalization and severe disease in total more than one point. Two billion corona virus doses have been allocated for the continent. But it's not clear when all those jobs will arrive. The longer any region remains unvaccinated. The greater the chance that more variants arise vaccines though can be tweaked in a formulation of the oxford vaccine targeted at the south african variant could be going into arms by autumn. What scientists cannot address is the long run damage to africa both in human and economic terms so far continent to have been spared from the worst case scenarios predicted early on in the pandemic but the longer term picture remains bleak many ways the impact of the pandemic and africa is worse than it appears on the surface around the official numbers. Kenley salmon is one of our africa correspondent based in dakar. It is the case that having a young population has to some extent protected the continent from the virus africans and died from it that americans europeans but the true scott of infection. Death is really hard to gauge. Studying sudan recently showed the perhaps only two percent of all the covid desk for a quoted in the official tally and the economic impact is worse than it looks last year. The region's economy shrank for the first time. In twenty five years tourism has been badly hit as have commodity exporters things like oil in nigeria and taken together. Gdp per capita fell below twenty ten levels last year so things are perhaps not quite as bad as some other parts the world but certainly still very tough and things may get tougher house. What are the particular challenges to africa. Africa faces quite a number of challenges in the next few years as it tries to recover from the pandemic but the biggest i of the really is vaccines. Some african governments have perhaps failed to grasp the urgency of the situation in tanzania for example the populace president john food even casually cast out with a vaccine work but i do forgive aside claiming the postman precautions such as steaming nation were better than vaccines and even added that if the white man was able to come up with next nations then. Vaccinations for aids. Malaria and cancer would have already been found. So it's not so much a question than of supply. I mean given that quite a few vaccines have been essentially booked at the stage. A number of vaccines have been booked but the big question is when will they arrive because right now there aren't anywhere near the number of axes required forever on in the world and rich countries are of course the front of the queue for those vaccines have been produced africa's going to need perhaps two point six billion doses to vaccinate everyone and those are not being made locally so they have to rely on supplies elsewhere for the moment so that means joining the queue. All this means that whereas rich countries aim to vaccinate most of their people by the middle of this year the african. cdc a public health. Bali in africa's aiming for sixty percent of africans to vaccinated by the end of next year. But even that may be too optimistic. For the poorest countries. The economist intelligence unit sister organization estimates that in most african countries most people will not be inoculated until mid twenty twenty three or even early twenty twenty four and there must be serious consequences of it being that long until the continent is on average vaccinated. Africa is likely. It doesn't get those vaccinations into suffer. Further waves of the infection while after the disease may have amped in the rich world. And that of course will cause more death and more suffering. Doesn't risk that. Having the virus transmitting between people frequently africa could allow new variance to evolve. We've already got the south. African variant and these new variants could endanger people even in rich countries if they prove to be resistant to vaccines and then finally of course not having vaccines could force. African policymakers to continue with these very difficult economic lockdowns curfews even after many other countries around the world set free of those kinds of restrictions and if the public health concern lasts that long then surely the economic concerns will last at least that long. That's right in many african countries facing pretty severe crises at the moment just getting finance to pay their bills. Africa has very limited fiscal space on average countries in sub saharan africa. Spending more than thirty cents on every dollar. They raise and text revenue paying their debts. And that's up from twenty cents on the dollar before the pandemic on the debt side to over half of low income sub saharan african countries are now classed as in distress or at high risk of distress. According to the imf and what about countries with bigger economies the two biggest economies in africa nigeria and south ever both in pretty deep trouble nigeria for example was described by the world. Bank is being an unprecedented crisis. Recently the bank is not normally quite so blunt in nigeria. There has been a legacy of management for a number of years and pandemics really accessible that quite badly. Now focused suggested by twenty twenty three. Gdp per capita may go back as low as it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty time when the oil price was some high on so africa too is in trouble that have been in recession twice in the last three years before the pandemic hit of course now is dribbling itself with a particularly heavy toll from the pandemic so both countries in fact are facing a difficult road out of the crisis. And what about outside help in terms of financing has been quite a bit of outside help although the crisis of course is very big but in twenty twenty the imf for example provided sixteen billion dollars in loans most of that came with relatively few strings attached and this help frigging countries to respond to the pandemic to avoid some of the liquidity crises that were looming the world bank also dispersed another ten billion but many countries got that funding to if the imf under emergency allocations that came quickly and relatively easily and those allocations for many countries will soon be exhausted. The rich world has been trying to help when it comes to debt. They've provided liquidity to countries through some bits of suspension initiative that basically allows poor countries to put off debt repayments until july. Twenty twenty one. This is of course helpful but the trouble is that those payments just suspended and they have to be paid back with interest in about five years time so as the chief economist for africa the world bank put it to us. It may just be kicking the can down the road to. How do you see this playing out. Then how high could the human cost of all this be while the stakes are pretty high. The pandemic has already done lower damage to people's health and africa. it's hitting their economic prospects and they wealth and it's also affecting education of course. Hundreds of millions of students in africa have been affected by school closures. This increases the risk of dropouts and reduces the prospects for africa's largest every generation so overall the costs here really quite significant. There are some reasons for optimism. We may see vaccine rollouts accelerate. There's also hopes that commodity price rises could give africa real boost as the global economy recovers been on balance. The evidence probably points to at pretty difficult road ahead with several more waves of the virus hitting already struggling health systems and perhaps a form of economic long covert in africa. So you know africans have come through this showing remarkable resilience but it may be toughest years are still to come in. Thank you very much for joining us. thank you
Stellar Community Fund: Payments and Beyond
"I know there's been an explosion of partnerships you guys have a stellar community fund in in all kind of go down this path throughout the throughout the discussion. But first and foremost like yeah. Give us some updates on what you what you've been working on lately for the last few months sure Over the last few months the stellar ecosystem has really grown up in part of that has to do with just organic growth. More people coming in finding the platform figuring out ways to use it building. Cool things part of it also has to do with partnerships that the stellar development foundation which is really the nonprofit organization at stewart's network. We're also trying to find people and work with people to help them integrate on stellar into us the network to to great effect right so we've also had a lotta great Partnerships that have come together of the past quarter and a lot of those have to do. With anchors anchors on stellar are basically what we call the organizations that accept deposits a fiat currency and issue credits on the network. So they're sort of the on ramp from the network and for the stellar vision of the world. There will be the goal is to get anchors and all these different markets because the network itself is asset agnostic and represent any currency. So the ideas. You get all. These anchors represent different fiat currencies on the network because the network has built an order books. You can easily exchange does makes it really good not just for like currency exchange but also things like cross border payments so we were a lot on getting more anchors onto the network and some of the big ones are sorry. Go ahead no no. Yeah that's interesting like which is one of my questions actually down the road. You're touching on it. It's like what time of what type of assets are you guys focused on there. There's tons of fiat. Are you also looking at like other cryptocurrencies or stocks. You know other types of assets data from from the traditional world you know. Is there any kind of focus or priority from from an acre sam point. Yeah the first priority for the organization. Stf stellar development foundation. I'll just probably call it. Stf from now on foot on the sdf's focus primarily at this point is on the currencies. So you know we have. We work with anchors a lot of them. We have a usd anchor just announced a new partnership with us dc. So you'll see see is going to be issued on stellar. We have a euro anchor and then we have a lot of anchors in africa and latin america in the first priority is to get those fiat currencies a representative on the network because they're good on off-ramps and because they connect people in their real lights right if you have a digital version of a currency that you can spend in your life. It's a lot more useful and we're definitely focused on practical real world use cases however there are also some really cool projects on stellar that deal in other currencies are the issue other currencies. The first i'll mention is d. Stock d. s. t. o. d. stock essentially represents a stocks on on on stellar network. As it's an app that you can use and you can basically accent trade Digital representations of stocks tesla's stock school stocks apple stocks and. It's cool because they also partner with some of these On so that it gives access to those stocks in the ability to train them to people in in markets where it's not necessarily easy to get access to those stocks right so in in nigeria where you can use the nigerian naira anchor that we have to on ramp. That company called khoury. You can then deposit that money into an account with these stock in trade stock so there's also stock trading in. Finally you asked that other cryptos yet. There are Stellar well with any payment rail including other crypto other blockchain's because you can create a digital representation of bitcoin her either just as you can of dollar nigerian naira or apple stock so we have solid that basically you can hold a stellar is version of that asset and you can redeem it by deposit giving it back to the anchor who will give you that value on the other chain so yeah there are also criticized other cryptos represented for sure

How 'Bout Dem Apple Seeds
"Okay thomas we are talking about apple's today. Why don't you tell our listeners. Even got started down this weird little apple path so a few weeks ago i saw video of a dude eating apple from the bottom. And you know. I it up to the pitch me and at the time all i wanted to find out from the team was whom amongst us was with me in eating the entire. It was just way to start to get the conversation going. Yeah i remember. And i was horrified to find out so many members of our team eat the whole apple. We were pretty divided down the middle. Yeah that's right and the discussion led to the possible dangers of eating the apple seeds. Some of us had heard they might be toxic. Some of us hadn't so here we are chatting away about them apples and the science behind whether or not you can eat the core why we are here. Today is pretty cool. Yeah totally and i found a food. Scientists to help explain it all could also My name is islami outs. For last shoddy. I am senior lecturer in the department of food. Science outsider jackets ally investment technology. Islamia is a few scientists beast in nigeria and she told me on the one hand apples. Are these magical fruits. That are really nutritious. And good for you apple's Poplar fruits us are reaching nutrients such as anti oxidants minera house vitamese dietary fiber is an auditor nutrients but their seats are different than their flesh. Yeah exactly what i'd always heard. Is that apple. Seeds have like some amount of cyanide in them you know like generally not something that is good for humans i mean yes and no i asked islam yacht to explain it and it's a little more complicated seeds that is in the center of harpool copy above causing poisoning because the seed contains it compounds. That is called. I mean. I lean mick. Dolan is a compound that's found and lots of natural plants and things that humans eat such as apples but also peaches apricots and almonds. They're is a similar compound and cassava he staple in nigeria and on its own mattie in seeds a midland is usually harmless to people no concerns there but what is potentially concerning is when digestive enzymes in our bodies come in contact with the michelin and when they combine the enzyme breaks away the sugars in the dylan and leaves cyanide which could potentially lead to cyanide poisoning. What do you mean. Potentially thomas say more. Well the conditions have to be just right mattie for this to be more of a concern for starters the midland in apple seeds is encased by pretty tough outer layer in order to expose them make the land to our digestive enzymes have to chew those seeds really really. Well okay i get it and even whole eating monsters like you. Thomas are generally crushing those seeds down to a fine pace with your teeth right exactly. Mattie as much as i love that tidal more importantly though there's not enough apple seeds in one or two apples to really show in effect on our bodies the amount of cyanide that does get formed if at all our livers are pretty good at filtering out those hawks
What is "Unbanked"? CEO and Founder of Electroneum, Richard Ells
"You often described Trillion as a microbe aiming service. But i think it's a lot of other things as well. And i know one of the things that make you you. All unique is your focus on you know helping freelance for the gig. Economy third world countries right. 'cause you're actually helping them get paid in the etienne currency. So can you talk a little bit about. Have you seen any upticks in usage related to geography free during this time. I'm sure there's obviously many people looking for work and many people even Switching industries right. They just they just kinda want to survive in the best roy. Difficult cool about same. Things changed because because all dates are being pretty wild. We only launched pools during covid pretty much. Most of the february twenty twenty where mesa madness was going on and it has been a bit of a welwyn to win all suggest before cameras coors nineteen thousand and fifty talks. Fifteen thousand tubs on the platform fall off of more than than i thought we would be. They sites in all in a life cycle. And it's it's a really amazing thing to say that word of mouth which is which is now joining the whole ecosystem is it's been an actual rate thing so identity have data specifically A change i would imagine the likes of five hundred People who've been around for a long time next release deductible on Extrapolate specifically about cogan unfortun- got it's understandable because yeah sometimes in crypto. You don't have that direct data but why do you think you've seen such large growth in just the the community and like you mentioned. There's a lot of other alternative freelancing opportunities and focusing on this one thing. Because i read a lot about how people in the in the third world like you said word of mouth. They're all kind of talking to each other and accepting this currency as their new as their new valid currency. I think for a lot of people in the us It's sometimes hard to understand that perspective because a lot of our money and foundation is stays the same in its stable but when you talk about third world countries these people in many in many ways their skilled but they can't even get a paid inefficient raids right. So what do you think makes you all unique in that sense to to cater to this new generation. Maybe talk a little bit about that. This what is the effects of this new generation. When they start them they start to earn and work at Earning crypto per se rather than traditional Like what effect is half so first of all. We re still with your idea of every running freedoms platform ourselves. I mean we all. We don't select turning. We've this idea of having a very small highlands very very transaction fee to give you. The spirits appear payment system. There is insanely cheap to use almost free not want free but mike is microscopic fraction of a fraction of essent transactions. So it made you mike. You could make a two cent four cent transaction in a gun which is all twenty cent transactional fifty cent. Transaction solid transaction sizes. You couldn't possibly do on the on. The vase of mouse to coordinate Really very efficiently because most of the payment providers should providers charge of minimum of twenty or thirty cents per transaction so micro payments all really not that sixty two to traditional finance and then we shall ending slightly more helping to the twenty thousand dollar range which still to to the global twenty of thirty dollars. Sounds like peanuts bucks. A year said life changing of money for lots of people with good skills so but when he gets back. You still got the site of transfer. Bank banking system is antiquated. And it's antiquated evening. If you go to the united states want to save money from one place in the united states to another or in the fight from the uk to to else of the that. It's pretty good now.

6 essential lessons for women leaders
"And goes ten years ago. When i became prime minister of australia i assume that at the start they would be a strong reaction to me. Being the first woman about it would obeyed over time. And then i would be treated the same. As savory out. The prime minister head bain was so wrong. That didn't happen the longer. I governed the more visible the sexism became. I don't want any other woman to be blindsided like that. That's why i'm so excited about working with you to help. Women get ready to lead in what is still a sexist world. I share that sense of excitement. After i was finance minister of nigeria was overwhelmed by the number of women who wanted me to be the mental. It is terrific that aspiring young women are keen to learn from those who have gone before. But they're still too few female role models especially women of color now. As a result of the work we have done together. I can offer everyone. Class standout lessons. That tabbies just of my own experience. What on the global research on women and leadership and the candidate sites of leading women one of the things to share. Is that this joy in being a leader in having the opportunity to put your values into action emphasizing. The positive makes a real difference to the power of role modeling if we only focus on the sexist negative experiences. Women may decide that being a latest. Sound so grim. They don't want to do it on the other hand if we pretend it so rosy and easy women and girls can be put off because they decide. Leadership is only for super women who never have any problems. We all have to get the balance right but in ghozi. It's impossible to talk about role models right now without asking you. How does it make you feel to see. Camera harris elected as vice president. I'm delighted it's important to the association of girls and women that they see role models. They can relate to vice president-elect terrace exactly that kind of role model particularly for girls and women of color and every woman who steps forward makes small space for the women will come next of course both of us know from and experiences that even win women get to the top unfortunately too much time and attention will be spent on what they looked like rather than what they do and say and ghozi for women. Is it still all about the head. Certainly julia. I laughed when hillary clinton said she envied by dress style and particularly my signature scuff. So i don't need to worry about my hair. Like many of women leaders have effectively adopted a uniform. a colorful one. it's african. it's me. I have developed my own style that i wear every dan. I don't vary from it. That has helped protect me from endless discussion of my appearance. It's helped me to get people to listen to my words not look at my clothes. Hillary told us she lost the equivalent of twenty four four days of campaign time in the two thousand sixteen election getting her hair and makeup done every day but actually contemporary problems for women leaders go far deeper than anything to do with looks at better. Warn now about to use the would. Many people would find rude. My favorite funny moment. He now travels was discussing resting bitch. Face with prime minister earner solberg of norway. the global research shows that if a man comes across strong and bishops. Even so faking. That's fine but if a woman does it in the reactions against her can be as visceral as revulsion or contain. They pretty mind bogglingly. Strong words happy. They certainly are women. Lee does talk about intuitively understanding that to be viewed as acceptable as a leader. They have to stay balanced on a tightrope between strength an empathy if they come across as too tough there viewed as hard unlikable but if they come across as too soft there seemed to be lacking the backbone needed to lead the problem. Is we still all have sexist stereotypes wearing in the back of our brains. I was portrayed as out of touch. Because i don't have children as even compared to a barren cow in the bush. Distant to be killed for hamburger means. That's horrible at you. Face that stereotype. While i was worried that people will think i couldn't do my job. My family was young. I enjoyed token to new zealand's prime minister justin that dan about experience as its second woman ever to have a child while being national leader. I was very taken by. Has saying she doesn't think she gets the work life balance right

Of just the anguish at what has happened under the threat that it poses to protest.
