Footprints and Vodka: Recounting One of History's Greatest Mysteries
"Unfortunately, no one attempted to save or record the tourists' footsteps near the Diet Love Pass because no one anticipated finding them dead. The precise number of persons in this pass on that tragic day is still up for debate. However, based on the statements of those involved in the search, there were unquestionably eight or nine tracks of footprints left by tourists, who were wearing essentially no shoes. They left distinctive columns of crushed, snow with a footprint on top after pressing the snow with their feet. The gang was walking in a single file, with a tall man at the back. His steps somewhat obscured those of his pals who had preceded him. Overall, the trail gave the impression of being well organized and smooth as it descended the mountainside. Several trails would diverge from the main path before coming back together. Additionally, additional footprints were found and documented. It is difficult to tell if these were abandoned by rescuers or someone else. They radioed back about their find at the Diet Love Group's final encampment around six o 'clock in the evening. They were advised by UPI that a sizable search team will be flown by helicopter to their location. In addition, two enormous military tents would be delivered for further security and comfort. Colonel Urtyukov would join the search and rescue operation together with the detective. They promptly skied downwards back to regroup and share what they had found with the rest of the searchers. Sharavin brought out the flask of vodka he had discovered in the tent and offered a toast to the well -being of the Diet Love Group later, as they sat around the campfire for their evening meal. We shared it out between us, there were eleven of us, including the guides, he recalls. We were about to drink it when one guy turned to me and said, Best not drink to their health, but to their eternal peace. The man was Ivan Paskin, a local who was assisting in the efforts. He was actually beaten up for his comments. No one could or would admit that such learned hikers could perish so easily. The same day that the tent was found, Nina Sergeyevna Anasumova, sister of Alexander called it on, signed a telegram that was addressed to Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev on February 26th and pleased for authorities to launch a rescue effort.
Scarred by war, Ukrainian children carry on after losing parents, homes and innocence
"UNICEF says an estimated 1.5 million Ukrainian children are at risk of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. In lviv near the border with Poland, Ukrainian children dance with adults trying to bring some joy in wartime, one of the kids playing 9 year old Andrea recalls the day their house was shelled in Ukraine's eastern Donetsk region. We ran out of the house but everything was in a white fog. I was wounded right there, then we didn't see dad. When the fog lifted, he found his father on the porch, motionless and covered in blood, after being struck by a Russian projectile, their foster mother, Nina poliakova, told the AP and three is usually calmer than his sister Olga, but that's.

Who's Being Targeted With 'Black PR'? Mike Benz Explains
"Back to what's happening internally and the story that you broke on Tuesday. But explain these two concepts black PR or crisis PR and who's being targeted with regards to that mic. So the idea is a democracy is a struggle for hearts and minds of the public who in turn picks their government representatives. And so that is essentially a struggle between, you know, what's sort of known in the PR space is sort of white PR, which is positive press about someone or black VR, which is sort of negative press or leaving a mark. Or inducing a crisis. Crisis management crisis PR. These are terms for destabilizing a political figure or a region in order to open up opportunities in order to replace that person politically. And so for example, in the integrity initiative, there was a Spanish vox party of general official Pedro bannis was his name. And the UK intercluster cell of which Nina jankovic was the part, as was Anne applebaum from the Atlantic, as was Ben nimmo from the Atlanta council and from now, by the way, head of threat intelligence at Facebook. Top sensor at Facebook was a part of this as well with Nina jankovic. They bragged in their own internal reports how they organized a crisis PR set of hashtags and rumors online coordinated through their stakeholder group in order to create nightmare press for Pedro banos. And then take that press and run it straight to the prime minister of Spain in order to convince the prime minister of Spain that it would be hugely unpopular to have Pedro banos in this national security position because of all the bad PR that

1984 on Steroids With Tracy Beanz
"Tracy you have an article here, bombshell court order outlines proven government big tech censorship to tell us about it. Yes, this is Missouri versus Biden, one of the biggest cases that's going on right now in the country. It is so huge. Well, basically, the states of Missouri and Louisiana decided they were going to sue the federal government because they said the federal government was stepping in to censor American speech on a myriad of topics from COVID to vaccines to the Hunter Biden laptop to election integrity, all kinds of different stuff. They stepped in, they asked the judge if he could file a temporary injunction to stop the government agencies from discussing this stuff. Any longer with the social media companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google, all of them. So in order to get there, to grant that temporary injunction, the judge gave them expedited discovery and deposition power, which is almost unheard of generally. But to do it at such a high level of all these government agencies was absolutely bonkers. They did it. They granted it. The government kicked and screamed and fought. But ultimately, the heads of sissa, the CDC, you know, Anthony Fauci was deposed. Elvis Chan from the FBI was deposed. All these people were deposed in this case. And today we're getting the filing finally from the states of Missouri, Louisiana and various plaintiffs to make the case for that temporary injunction. The judge has already said they've basically made their case because the discovery they've received has been absolutely off the charts insane. So remember that disinformation governance board that they tried to spring up, Nina jankowitz, who's now begging for money. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Yeah, she is to sue what Fox News. Is that what she's doing? 100,000 bucks, yeah. Yeah. So she, that disinformation governance board was actually just a cover for what they're already doing at sissa. Sisa declared they learned through this lawsuit discovery. Your thoughts, cognitive infrastructure. So cisa has declared that your thoughts, the things you type on social media and what you think are part of their infrastructure. Therefore, they can regulate those things as they would any other piece of critical infrastructure that they are in charge of.
How Will Nikki Haley Handle Our National Security?
"Battery, there's been some differentiation among the Republican candidates, both declared an imminent, on weapons for Ukraine. Governor desantis is warned against a blank check. Former president Trump has denounced warmongers. Mike Pompeo and Tom cotton are sort on the other end. Send everything they need to win right now. Where's ambassador Haley on that spectrum of Republican support for the people of Ukraine and president zelensky. Don't send money. Don't send troops send all the equipment and ammunition they need with our allies and make sure that they have everything they need to win. We can do it by way of equipment and ammunition and working with our allies. We don't have to do it with checks and troops. Would you send F-16s and a tens? Yes, everything they need to win. Right. Nina, Iran is close to breakout. They're at 86% of what they need to have a nuclear weapon. Would you support U.S. acting with or without Israel against Iran to destroy that program? Well, I think we need to work with Israel. Israel is already onto it. Israel's already looking to move in that direction. I think we need to work with them. But we also need to work with our Arab allies. Saudi Arabia very much doesn't want Iran to get the bomb either. We need to work with them the emiratis, the qataris we've got to make sure we work with more countries to stop Iran and we have to call out China for helping them. But matter ambassador, they're less than a month away. They can have a nuclear weapon within a month. If you were president, would you have already ordered a military strike on Iran to destroy that capacity? If I was president, I would be having a meeting right now with Israel and the Arab countries saying, what are we going to do to stop it? This isn't just our fight alone. This is all of their fights. They are destruction to all terrorism. They are the number one state sponsor of terrorism. And we have to make sure we do everything to stop them. You don't just quickly say, oh, we're going to go to war. What you do is you get with your allies and see what that force is going to look like. And you get strategic in how you're going to do it.
"nina" Discussed on Latina to Latina
"Nina Turner Graf knows how to change course while continuing to move forward. She did it early on when she opted against law school and instead chose to pursue a master's in political science, then again as she pursued a career in news that would take her through the halls of ABC NBC and Entertainment Weekly, digital opportunities that gave way to on air opportunities. Before Nina made the biggest pivot of all, picking up her young family and moving to Minneapolis to bring her love of storytelling to Target Corporate communications. And here's the thing. If you know Nina, which I do, we came up together through news, she is not a sit still type. She is continually reassessing how to best align her values and her skills. Most recently, making the leap to lead pipeline manager for target accelerators. Nina is here to share what she has learned from all of these pivots and the work she's doing to change the future of retail. Nina, thank you so much for doing this. Thanks for having me. Nah, I realize as much as I know about your story, there is a key piece of it that I don't know, which is what it was about your upbringing that made you want to be a storyteller. I fell in love with storytelling because I knew I had a story to tell. I think I was the beneficiary of hearing stories. Almost that nausea, if I'm being honest, around how my paternal grandfather fled through, he came, you know, from the Dominican Republic to Washington heights with nothing. To this day, I don't even know really. What's true, in fact, beyond that simple fact because he told his own story the way he wanted it to be understood and shared out. He created his own legacy as did I think everyone in my family and I'm the beneficiary of that. You know, they made certain choices so that I could have the freedom and privilege to create my own story. And truly, I think it was the simple things around my childhood that kind of influenced my journey. You know, my parents didn't let me watch a lot of TV as a kid it was PBS and 60 minutes. Yes. And so when I was a little kid, I had this really vivid memory of sitting down with my tape recorder. Remember those and like recording myself, doing fake newscasts like Peter Jennings, all the while not really connecting the dots and thinking like I could do that. When did you finally give yourself permission to consider journalism as an actual option? It was way back when I had graduated from college. I had taken the LSAT when I realized I'd have to pay for her said law school, and I wasn't really a 110% engaged in that. I took some time to work, and I was working at a law firm as a paralegal. And at the time, it was a Great Recession. So I had all the time in the world to read. Read the internets, and it was such a cool time, like New York magazine had launched a bunch of blogs, you know, The New York Times was taking a more relaxed style to sharing out the news in tandem with really embracing the power of digital. And honestly, Alicia, it was me reading and consuming content and being like, I could totally do this. I could do this. And so I did apply for law school a second time trying to get those scholarships, but I decided to simultaneously take the GRE and apply for my masters and take up some media internships. And that's kind of like the long story short around how I was able to accomplish my first pivot, the first of a few, and change the trajectory of my professional career. You talked about the first pivot, I would argue no one know if you see it the same way that the second pivot is getting into journalism, becoming a writer, doing a lot of work in the digital space, but then both opportunities organically coming to you to be on air and then your own desire to be on air. I wonder one if you see it the same way. And two, if you can sort of pull back the curtain on the amount of thought and effort that goes into that critical pivot. I've really been the beneficiary of others seeing a lot of potential in me. it's been that coupling of being overly prepared, giving a 110% showing up and being old, but also being surrounded by the people who want the best for you and who want to push things for you. It worked at ABC for a while. I had been an assistant, eventually ended up in the digital newsroom, and I had a variety of beats ranging from general news to entertainment and the girl who had been covering the Kardashians went to cover Hillary Clinton. She was like, I'm a serious reporter now. Like, I'm not, but all that to say, you know, landed at NBC, and I was still very much doing digital writing, digital media, as you had mentioned. And the quote unquote big break came when the singer Jenny Rivera had died. And I think it was a slow news day. Like there wasn't really else going on and someone was like, I hear this shitting river person was a big deal to the Aladdin Latino Latino community. And I think someone probably in the broadcast space, you know, the floor below me at 30 rock was like Googling the news and they saw my headline and were like, oh, she's in the building. My editor at the time, she literally was like slapped some lipstick on me and she was like, go downstairs, like, tell them that you wrote the story. Like, tell them you know everything. And yeah, I did a couple of hits for NBC affiliates. And it all snowballed from there and the fact that I was at NBC. And I was in in-house acid, and there were so many properties, you know, whether it's NBC learn or the affiliates MSNBC and I loved it.

Rep. Lauren Boebert: Washington Is Worse Under Pelosi's Watch
"This was Washington what you expected to be or better or worse You know I would say both It's definitely a lot worse than I thought because Nancy Pelosi controls every square foot of the capitol That is no longer the people's house That is Pelosi's house and it is devastating We saw that at the beginning with the fences and the razor wire and the 26,000 armed National Guard because armed security and walls work the elites get that But also I think it's so much better because I thought I was going to Washington D.C. and I would find maybe four other members of Congress who were actually there for the right reasons And I found a lot more than four And so there are a lot of men and women who have stepped up to answer this call Many of them are serving in the House freedom caucus And these are the members that I surround myself with who I spend time with who I learn from And really pursue saving the country with many of the things that have been exposed under the Biden administration is because we have got out in front and we've had legislation to reverse course to expose what's happening to stop what they're doing And we really put that out there as the tip of the spear And we were successful in getting some of that undone I mean look at the board of propaganda the 1984 ministry orwellian ministry of truth We came out heavy against that And now the board is paused and Nina jankowicz has resigned So these are some of the exciting things that have happened just in my first year of Congress serving with great men and women who are there for the right reasons And some of those stories are in my book as well My American life which is also available on audible dot com my story in my voice to your ears

Nina Jankowicz' Analysis of 'Colour Revolution'
"Cut 5 go First of all color revolutions have nothing to do with race The term was coined in the early 2000s when countries like the republic of Georgia and Ukraine had spontaneous peaceful democratic revolutions that had colorful nicknames In 2003 the Georgian opposition protested the opening of a new session of parliament based on fraudulent election results They did it while carrying roses hence the rose revolution In 2004 and 2005 Ukrainians protested their own rigged election Candidate Victor Yushchenko's campaign branding was orange hence the orange revolution You get the idea Color revolutions have earned bad rap though mostly thanks to Vladimir Putin because they brought in democratically minded governments that threatened Russian influence in the region Putin likes to suggest they are CIA organized That is not true Believe it or not sometimes people get fed up with having their voices silenced for decades Putin's narratives intentionally rob protesters of agency They discount the grievances that brought them to the streets risking their lives and ultimately they undermine the resulting governments and now we're seeing the same narrative cropping up here in the United States Here's why it doesn't fit First of all in case we've forgotten protest is a democratic right you are entitled to it Second of all color revolutions happen in autocracies When people are fed up with the indignities of an entrenched regime while we have witnessed some democratic backsliding here in the United States we are not an autocracy We still have checks and balances We still enjoy democratic rights Certainly we are not Georgia in 2003 Ukraine in 2004 or Belarus today

Nina Noble Discusses How HBO Were Leaders in Diversity
"Well, just from my perspective, oddly, our other shows are becoming more like us. In the old days, we were the outliers for always integrating what are popular concepts now diversity and inclusion and equity into our productions. It was just sort of part of our workflow. And so now just recently is the first time that people are actually starting to look at all this stuff we've done in that area and wanting to become more like that just in terms of staffing in terms of how people are treated. And so I'm tremendously proud of our history in that area.
David Simon and Nina Noble Are an HBO Production Powerhouse
"In 1998, HBO aired its first big scale miniseries from the earth to the moon. It was originally budgeted and roughly $40 million, but the network followed Tom Hanks passion and wound up spending more than 60 million. Band of brothers, the Pacific, The Sopranos, and many other HBO projects would be beyond costly as well. But David Simon's HBO shows have proceeded down a different financial path. In large part, due to the acumen of his right hand, executive producer, Nina noble. Saunter down the halls of HBO, talk with their production experts, and you're bound to hear the word trust a lot. Trust is a vital ingredient for any network, but particularly so in HBO, where creators and producers are made to feel largely empowered to bring their visions to the screen without being micromanaged. While there is obvious financial supervision, the network wants to be in business with partners who are financially responsible and not spending their days desperately trying to exact more funds. Nina noble doesn't play such games. She has been working at HBO alongside David Simon for more than 20 years, and is part of an MVP triumphant of female powerhouse executive producers at the network, which includes Eileen landress of Sopranos fame and bernadette caulfield, who operated his field marshal on Game of Thrones. Think of all three women as CEOs of these shows, not in the writer's room, but often everywhere else. Noble is known for being a woman of her word and a complex problem solver. You can say she's in the solutions business, and that makes television life infinitely more agreeable for David Simon.
The Larger Significance of the NPR-Sotomayor Story
"I'd like to talk about the larger significance of this NPR story about the Supreme Court and masking. I wasn't going to cover the story. I thought it was kind of dumb. But Debbie's like, no, people are talking about it. You should cover it, and I want to do it in a way that draws out. What's really going on here? Because you see the essence of fake news. And it started out with Nina totenberg, the kind of longtime court reporter of NPR. Saying the following, she said that according to sources at the court Sotomayor did not feel safe in proximity to people who were not masked. Nina told mug reported that justice Roberts, understanding that, quote, in some form as the other justices to mask up. And then says tort, they all did, except Gorsuch, who as it happens sits next to Sotomayor on the bench, is continued refusal to do so has meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justice weekly conference in person, joining by telephone. Now, this article was just picked up because it suggested this kind of, wow, even at the Supreme Court, you've got all this insider Garfield going on over masking. So right away, CNBC was all over at MSNBC, CNN, and then of course all the pundits began to weigh in. He has made a Hassan. Why is it that the public figures on the right who claim to be pious Christians and believers and morality and decency turn out to be awful awful people? So you got the statement and then all the speculations on top of the statement presuming, of course, the statement to be true. And then justice Roberts put out a statement basically saying I never asked the other justices to be masked, boom. And after that, this was even more unprecedented. There was a statement that came out from Sotomayor and Gorsuch. So what are my says? I never asked that gore such be masked. I never, I never made that requirement. Gorsuch said I never heard anything of this sort from the chief justice has never been any such rule. The whole story was made up. The whole story was lies. Now, the killer. Here's a Nina totenberg tweeting after all this after three statements think of the how unusual it is for three justices of the court to come out and directly dispute all of them, saying the same thing and say meeting Nina totenberg's reporting as follows. You think she'd be like eating crow, right? No. Quote, NPR stands by my reporting. In other words, the three justices are liars. Either that, or some analysts have tried to cover her by saying that in an original report, she said that the judge Roberts quote in some form as the justice system makeup as though in some form means he didn't really. He just sort of implied

And i'm hopeful that high. I hear little glimpses of things that maybe we might be going in right direction. Well you know it's it's true we are. I could focus on all the good stuff.

It we are truly you know there's a perception out there of water scarcity and in fact that is the case in several places And i can. I can come come back to canada and and water scarcity and canada which is an odd thing. Because that's exactly what my book is about. Right irony of water scarcity in canada which is of water rich nation. We have a fifth of the freshwater at any given time waters always moving never staying put even even if it stays put in a glacier for thousands of years it's still eventually moving melting often and re reforming but yeah we To be honest in a water is essentially the main main part main driver of climbing the and therefore of climate change. What people don't realize is that water is everywhere. It's not just on the ground surface waters not just groundwater we forget about the groundwater in furs and it's movement there but waters in the air and there is such a thing as an atmosphere river that drives water around the planet And so we have you know. Climate change of course Any aspect of climate. Change that you're thinking of is going to be water-related the storms hurricanes tornadoes the movements. The the ice melt of course. The glacial ice melt has kept melt and the rising sea levels is all related to something going on with water but the bottom line. Tony is our our oceans are acidifying and with with terrible terrible results there with Not just a coral reefs but generally speaking. It's changing the dynamics of plankton in the ocean. Which are amazing primary producers for us and and creating a lot of oxygen. It's changing And temperatures are changing as well as freshwater input and permafrost melt. It's all related right. All these things are happening are raising the freshwater input into the ocean which also is affecting the great ocean conveyor the movement the great movement of the currents throughout the globe the global oceans and and in fact if that stalls which my book suggests the possibility were were indeed do massive phenomena debt. Our water driven netters happening. These are big giant machines. That you know. We can't just fix like you know like that just like that now. Having said that there's some cool lots of cool things that people are doing name. One thing is to do with climate change. Which of course is still do.

Fifty percent appear to have no disabilities and the jokes need told. Everybody laughed and i absolutely knew that. Many of us with disabilities ra- laughing for a completely different reason. And i loved that experience which i think is the only time i've actually been in a room where there was disabled comedian. Who is really the main act and to see the learning and the laughter. And i wished we would have had times. Of course we didn't really break into groups and have a discussion about the jokes. And why we laughed.

There might be a little bit of a comedic exaggeration. But i've had people tell me that sex could your mice tottering. And i've had people who have said that. True love has cured their friends chartering so like the all of that needs to be made and i feel very lucky to be able to do that in front of large groups and dive bars because they both get it in a different way and and i have fun shoshee sharing it. So could you tell me. And the audience. The story of the young man in his twenties who. I was seeing a psychologist. Who told him that he was a virginal.

We need to look at the vote of expression in very ways that you can do that kind of work academically. You can do that on a tv show. You can do that. in common. Me and disabilities studies deeply impacts me in comedy because i don't necessarily joke about Stutter although sometimes it does happen But i really try to take aim at the barriers emmy attitudes that i encounter instead of like look at the way i top highway and you address comedians. Who make fun a disabled people in our disabilities. And how do you feel about it. What have you. What do you do in that regard. Try to address it on. I try to have a surplus of things that i say and so if the comedian goes on in front of me. Ma use the r. word. I also learned that. I can't lecture comics on you know the our word is very hurtful.

So that's huge. We don't take both immediate a long term recovery measures then The consequences will outlast the pandemic for sure and of course when one tries to raise the question of quotas in the climate in the uk.

"I've spoken not encountered many young women who have come up to me and shared and that's another reason that inspired of my book was countless women. You know. i began advocating on behalf of women in iran and it sort of segue into the international community. Because i met so many amazing young women who would share stories with me how you know of their obstacles they wanna go into certain fields A lot of young girls. I encountered actually gone into the stem fields. And a lot of these young women leave after the first year and so i began researching And i saw that in america. For example. Thirty five percent of women get jobs in the stem fields. End up leaving. After the first year why predominantly because it's a male dominated fashion on their contributions are undervalued. They're never taken seriously and confirmed uncorroborated a lot of the stories. These young women had told me specifically when i was appointed you women trump in train ovation which is part of the work that we do is advocate for opportunities for girls and women in the stem fields as well as the obstacles and barriers and in geena nations like the us the uk the obstacles and barriers are not lost hold women back but again these male dominated passions that really don't Take their work seriously or undervalue. There are no one wants to be in a field where they don't feel appreciated even included. So you know these are these are issues. That are very difficult. Unfortunate knee to Not only challenge but to how do you overturn something. That's not a law absolutely presumably. It's cultural shift an in your role for the un. How well received all your suggestions. Very well were small group. We were very nicely together. We all have different platforms that we use to advocate and support. Un women's you know endeavors to worse increasing. The number of women in these tippy male dominated fields. So you know one of the most important ways to get around this is You know enforce quotas systems you know In these fields if you look at the countries so one way you can start to make a difference is you can look at the countries that continuously ranked in the top ten on the global gender gap index. Those countries are island. Ireland norway sweden iceland nicaragua rwanda and water. Accounts for their successes. Why has for example iceland Top the global gender gap index for eleven years in a row. Now what accounts for their success. And it's always the fact that they have quota systems for example in iceland Demands and enforces a forty percent women on their boards in norway. You have ninety. Five percent of women in the workforce what accounts for that. Well they have a paid family wrongly value family's contributions to society and they make it possible for parents to work and raise children If you look the. Us is actually. He talked about paid family. Leave is actually a except for sticks states No states actually has by federal is not obligated by federal law to give paid family. Leave so if you compare that to norway or finland for example finland new mothers get up to three years eight family. They get ninety one weeks. So you know you're you're enabling making it possible for women to work and have a family and contribute to the workforce and that accounts for the number of women going off and for the gender gaps to be reduced those arena. So you have to enforce quotas. You have to have a budgeting place. You have to account for equal wages for equal work if you globally factor in women's still on average with equal education and equal experience on.

Because not one person or one organization is responsible for them and you mentioned the problems that assist in the uk countries like the uk and america fully fully to so-called developed countries. Are you concerned that there is a backlash happening. Now you know if just roughly speaking you're talking about the pandemic and the ripple effect and how it's impacted women's rights and strides. That have been that have been made so far if you just look just prior to the pandemic two thousand nineteen I always say you know. Words mean one thing in statistics in a whole different things so if you look at the global gender gap index which is published annually by the world economic forum. They analyzed a one hundred fifty three countries. With respect to the extent of in advancements they've made for women specifically in the political economic -education health survival sub index and prior to the pandemic. You know when. I talk about this. You get a home moment. Usually a talk about women in iran. How are held back on. But when i say the us In two thousand and nineteen ranked fifty one so doesn't even rank in the top ten not even close And the uk had come in at on fifteen on. What's more alarming. is that the. Us had dropped twenty three points since two thousand fifteen now fast forward to the pandemic. The uk has dropped again. It is now comes in at on twenty one and the us dropped again comes in fifty three so then you look at other countries that have advanced despite the pandemic you look at spain which was number twenty one on the world economic forum gender gap index and. Now it comes in at eight. And what factors account for such setbacks in advancements you know you need more women in leadership positions so the more women have that are You know serving ministers parliamentarians. political figures The more You can advance you to advance. In that accounts for spain making the strides despite the pandemic currently spain is the most females has the most female centric in the entire world in fact They have forty seven percent of women in congress. Sixty five percent ministers ehthiopian has closed seventy percent of its local Of its gender gap. They have actually reached complete parody. In their health and survival sob index.
