Sahel of a mess: France's impossible peacekeeping mission
"Jihadists are entrenching themselves. Ever further in the suhel continent wide strip of semi arid land just south of the sahara desert. There are former islamic state fighters ousted from the middle east al qaeda associates and a number of ethnic militias. The sahel's hitter ends are far from any city state. Laws don't hold. Public services barely exist last year. Nearly five thousand people died in battles or acts of terror in the region six fold increase on two thousand sixteen. An estimated four million people have fled their homes this week. Sixty world leaders are among those who have gathered online for the paris. Peace forum where the crisis is being discussed. A united nations peacekeeping force has a rim to patrol and to help rebuild the embattled region but most combat missions against the jihadists are led by several thousand french troops. Some of whom are based this gow in mali. Well we arrived in gow by plane then took a french military helicopter which flew at low altitude extremely fast for about an hour to get to this advance base that they've built out there in the middle of the sahel sophie. Better 'cause our paris bureau chief. An extraordinary region absolutely vast nothing in any direction will miss no human habitation. A few acacia trees the occasional goatherd and a tiny settlement. But that's about it and then you arrive in the middle of this dusty zone read colored sand where the soldiers who've made it. All the way from france had just finished a month. Long operation against jihadist. So these were both regular french soldiers but also special forces the most recent of these operations. They killed several dozen jihadists. They seize weapons motorbikes fuel and to one of them just described it. Talk to me that it was intense. There were violent encounters on the ground. This is real proper combat that the french soldiers are engaged in there. And how significant is the french presence in the region. Well the french have over five thousand troops as part of this operation that they called it by far the biggest contributor to any of the operations in the region there is a un peacekeeping operation with over thirteen thousand soldiers but no single country contribute as many as the french do. There are two hundred and fifty british for example due to arrive. Soon there are three hundred and fifty germans there but in effect. What's is obvious. Once you're there is how the real combat operations fall to the french conditions. A tough is extremely hard. The sand everywhere is grueling. And it's risky. How risky last year was the region's deadliest for years. There was a particularly nasty incident at the end of the year when the french lost. Thirteen elite soldiers in a helicopter crash but local soldiers from nizhny. Molly have also been on the receiving end of terrorist attacks. Neo lost seventy one soldiers in one attack than there was another took out fifty from marley. So it's a constant vigilance. And there's a constant sense of vulnerability even for the armed forces operating out there. But why is it that francis chosen to take the lead to to be the country with the greatest presence on the ground. Franz historically has links to the region it is the former colonial power which also causes something a problem now because it gets accused of acting in a sort of neo clooney away and fronts also has permanent military bases out there so it becomes a sort of natural partner for crisis in the past. I think that the french have really tried to change their strategy. This year. emmanuel macron host to summit at the beginning of the year with the leaders of the five signs countries and the idea is to trained share some of the burden to make sure that the french show more supported on the ground by the european countries for example they i saw estonians their swedish officer but also to try and get the regional armies to do a better job themselves and that was very clear in the description that i heard of the operations where they were working really very closely alongside marlon and nigerian forces in some of these operations against the jihadists issue in june macron emphasizes commitment to the operation solo vehicle always mma which party about the the fight against terrorism. But it's also about the return of governance and development for the region in which he wanted to work with local governments that are much closer basis and is that big french presence making any real difference to the levels of jihadist violence in this. Hell when i think it's important to think of it in terms of different regions and where we were so that was in the sort of central new central mari. I spoke to general marquan rate. Who commands the oppression. Can't overall the some offered to trish. She tested in terms of often. You said he was very satisfied with recent operations there. I think the french sense that they've really dealt a blow to what they call a die ashley. Islam state in the greater hara premium capacity results. Iovine underneath the media and the general said they haven't disappeared is but they don't have the same capacity to cause trouble that they did at the end of last year. So i think there is progress in that particular zone where they've been conducting these intense operations. Of course. the problem remains that can operate in one area but they certainly can't operate all over the country and that's where she doesn't remains a big problem and so what prospects for for actually paring back their prisons. I think is incredibly difficult. You know. I think the the french Condemned in a sense to stay in the sahel. The no plans to leave or to withdraw all their forces tool. I mean it's more question of trying to share the burden more the adversity. they're up against these jihadist groups. They are incredibly mobile than a magic they move about on motorbikes and pickup trucks and they can just disappear into the bush in a way. That's for the french forces. It's just makes it very difficult to contain and to target and so it sounds as if the the only option than it is to draw in international help. I mean how. How hard will that be the reds Help on the grounds. The american particular provide ups a crucial intelligence support to the operation. The british operates three shoot. Kelly copters there as well as part of buchan and they if french beccles and troops into combat zones on special forces which is obviously much more declined to start operations but the estonians are there and there are some checks and swedish special forces due to arrive soon so european countries are helping franz. But they aren't at the same time. Exactly lining up to offer these combat troops. And i think franz sometimes feels that. It's doing this job very much alone but the situation you describe is probably not going to be massively changed by a few dozen or a few hundred special forces. Even it's an incredibly difficult situation. The best the fringe show hoping to do is to try and contain the threat to try and secure areas and enable millions to go back to their homes into a more sense of security in some parts of the country. But it's not about defeating the enemy across the entire country. I think that much is clear.

Connecting in isolation: Indigenous people create, find and share community online
"Good afternoon I just wanted to show everybody what I had for sale tournament. Some quick cash. I have tons of these hoops through the loops. Dangles anything that's like Brick stitch dangles is thirty. Five dollars for me. Anyway come on my staff level. This is for those of you. That can't get out and smart yourselves. He's allow sacred smoke. Sage runway all negative feelings negative energy Tyler Nizhny late and I'm GONNA be dancing with today are affected by Kevin. May this stent from the protected by stay safe in the hope? That was a little bit from the Social Distance Powell. Facebook group page which was created to bring together people who would normally be hitting the PAO trail pretty soon but earlier this month. North America's largest power. The gathering of nations in Albuquerque made the difficult decision to cancel. The event powwow season is a community stable for first nation people. It's where different nations meet and also where indigenous vendors make a large chunk of their annual income. Dan Simon's the founder of womp somewhere usually heads out on the road to sell his jewelry and Art Ed powwows but because events are being canceled he decided to launch a digital Powell which he's calling the social distance Powell. He joins me from Montana. Hello Hello recently. Gathering of nations cancelled their annual general gathering. As I mentioned as a Vendor Palau's are where you sell your jewelry and art. So how did it make you feel to find out? The POWWOW was cancelled so for me. Personally have had different experiences with this. This is all felt like a dream. Hopefully I think I'm waking up from soon because Kind of amazing that this is all of our reality right now. Not just one person who is experiencing this. Everyone is around the world you know and a lot of vendors. I don't want to speak for myself. Many vendors rely on POW income for a living just like myself just in two months of the spring. A lot of vendors lost between TEN THOUSAND AND THIRTY TO FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. Tennis became general bracket there that income that we're losing and I was really depressed about this because I try to provide for my family. And this is a damper on me. You know myself and I know it's heard a lot of other vendors and there's not really a platform for all of us to sell their wares and not just vendors but no singers that are affected by this dancers that are affected by. This theory was not really a platform to share our voice. So I'm blown away and that's taking off. And it's pretty amazing supporting love all the support and love outweighs anything that's negative absolutely so vendors like you. How much can people make on the Palo trail? Typically I don't want to speak for myself but Most vendors bracket would be anywhere from twenty five thirty thousand up to one hundred two hundred fifty thousand. It just depends on what you're selling. And so how? Do people participate in the social distancing power? So we are on a group page on facebook right now again. This is just a week old so things are transforming as I'm talking. We're trying to focus on live feeds. There's a lot of people that are sending pictures in you know. We all are kind of used to Facebook and getting those likes and comments but for us in the group. This isn't what it's about it's not about the likes and comments it's about people having the platform in all being heard and One thing I've learned to withdrew pages on facebook. There's with people trapped in their houses. Right now is a lot of negativity and this is a lot of negativity. So it's coming out at us in. I know people don't mean to direct it at us. It's just what happens with humans. That's what we do a lot of time. We attacked ourselves now. This is the time to kind of sit back and reflect on. How did we end up in this space that we're in right now so Dan? How does the FACEBOOK group work exactly? Okay so anyone. That's on facebook Join the group There's about a reaching about seventy thousand people on there right now this past weekend. We had her first Powell online. It was kind of a test. No-one some you're on there I mean all the everything's up there on the group it's been really positive in. I hope it continues in a positive way. In on dangle that I have helped so many people there are so many people stuck in their homes and this has been an outlet for them to not feel like they're in that space to connect with others and all the people at is brought together has been kinda magical. I wanted this to have the platform where we area this week were featuring storytelling so there are some people sending in videos just upon their stories their traditions you know from their own tribes so you had said earlier that you've received a lot of love and support but also criticism. What kinds of love and support? Have you received from community? And how is the turnout been? Read you a one that I just sent in my other founders today on this motion to tribal enbrel human name but he says thank you Sam. My mom is able to get that medicine from your page. She's an eighty four year old elder and she loves what you've created so getting those messages. I like. I said it's definitely outweigh the negative things we've received on this. So is this something that you're planning to continue this is in its infancy so This is a platform. Want to keep in create. We're kind of still deciding what route to take. This is definitely the world right now. We don't know what's going to happen with this virus. This is definitely going to continue as long as it's virus continues and then from there We're GONNA see what happens. Know as one of my elders. I'm from the peak while Driving Connecticut myself so one of my elders tall oak. Just WanNa give him a shout-out He always told me. We can't plan for tomorrow. You never know what to expect for tomorrow so I can't plan just kind of do a creator guides me to do so. During the pandemic indigenous people are gathering together and getting creative of how they do it over the Internet. Is this something that you've been seeing a lot of in the United States well after this platform launched? I've been seeing people all over the world a lot of Canadians. Well in the states So it's been quite the outpour I mean just in an hour. We get a hundred posts people wanting to post you know if you look online anything you'll see a social distance. Pow is now a movement in. I didn't expect us to become a movement. I've had other groups online. This is the first one that went viral. It's just again all kinds of crazy. Well certainly speaks to a need right as indigenous people when we have to gather and be loving with each other Well thank you so much for your time today. Dan Welcome is pleasure to be here and I hope it continues in a positive way. That was the point of all this suggested. Kinda spread. Light love and positivity with everything. That's going on.
Samsung is Z FLIPPING out... and so are we
"Last week was not the heaviest heaviest news week. There were a lot of leaks in particular of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy. S Twenty s twenty plus as twenty ultra and By golly There are so many leaks of this phone that we're going to see in basically a week and I'm sure that everyone's really excited for it so I don't blame anybody for really going into the lakes and trying to get as much information as they can before unpacked But I'm going to be there in just over a week. Actually in San Francisco which is where unpacked. Is this time time but it seems that everyone else is just trying to get as much information as possible. I like to be surprised at these events. Actually trying my best not to look too far into into them a night anymore that I need to especially for the content that all eventually be making about the phones and it doesn't look like we're going to have to wait too long after unpacked to get our hands on the twenty s especially as consumers are able to preorder the phones right now like. Apparently there's already a page for people to start pre ordering an s twenty s twenty all trust when plus but we don't even really have concrete evidence of what the prices are going to be. The work of few tweets again little leaks from various places a couple of people said that t mobile representatives lives. Were telling them that it is going to start at nine thirty nine at a thousand dollars. That's the s twenty these smaller version. And then it's going to go up from there and any nine for the plus eleven ninety nine four the S. twenty Oltra so while we were all looking forward to phone starting to lower their price points insight as time went on it is that will be the case. And I'm actually not too surprised by this personally if this is the case because the note ten light and the S. Ten light are things like they are in existence and I wouldn't put it past Samsung to still go for the very high premium price price points on their flagship phones. And later on they're gonNA make like a s twenty lights. That's why I found it interesting. That even though the ten and the s ten e were interesting phones in in and of themselves even though everyone went for the ten plus generally That was the review units that we all ended up getting after all But yesterday was one of those phones that everyone was like really into because it did something a little bit different and it was more affordable. Now we don't get an S.. Twenty e we just get a regular s twenty then they went ultra with like the the crazy big version version of the phone That said later on. That's entirely possible that we're going to end up seeing something like an S. twenty light and honestly that's one thing that I'm really hoping to get my hands ends on pretty soon. Is the light models we did see them for a little bit at. CAS by even Samsung themselves are kind of being withholding when it comes to a release information on those this particular phones if I were to check real quick right now a lot of stories about the light models still don't have any price or release date information. The only thing we really know right now. Is that the headlight. Models have started to come up in India so that is kind of cool. That's something that literally happened at the beginning of this week which again. I'm happy that I kind of waited After this past Super Bowl weekend I'm not gonNA talk about the Super Bowl but that's what this past weekend was. I'm happy that I waited through the weekend before I did this. Episode because It's not that I knew there was going to be news coming out over the weekend but it just felt like the topic. I wanted to talk about on this episode from last week. kind of a heavy once. I wanted to give it some time and see what pieces of news. Mike come out that I have some opinions on and there was the Samsung Galaxy Z.. Flip was leaked on a video. Now this this is really interesting and is it is how going to lead this episode. Because I'm sure a lot of you want to hear some thoughts about these particular phones. The flip phones the smart flip phones the foldable. Whatever were you WANNA call them and as excited as I am for something like the Z flip and I know a lot of people out there are really jazzed about this form factor? One thing that I find interesting is that the foldable market seems to be so nizhny and while we were so excited for it from the galaxy full to the main ex To the to the modal razor which is starting to get into people's hands around this week and then finally them the Samsung Galaxy Z.. Flip which might be at unpack next next week. We're not too sure yet. It will be cool if it was or if it is What I find interesting is add the foldable foreign factor? Kind of dictates whether or not it's Ultimately useful so the types like the mate ex and the galaxy. Fold those make perfect sense from from a usability standpoint. Now I get that the screen on the galaxy fold is it's still not ideal the outer screen when you have the phone folded onto itself. I get that that screen is not really ideal but you do get a little bit of usability on there still and then when you open it up you you get a full screen that is bigger than what you would normally get on a smartphone. This is nothing that's new to anybody. I know a lot of people out. There are still opining over the the galaxy fold because what they really want is that larger screen form factor. That is possible that makes perfect sense to me but there's something that the clam shell. SMARTPHONES are starting to the show That might be their undoing. There are some Videos and pictures from maxine back over at X.. Da He's been running around just like he's been one of the main catalyst for Alavi leaks for Samsung phones for next week by the way he has also been just sort of running around and messing around with a lot lot of different phones especially the ones that are coming right now And he has a quite a bit of insight on all of this stuff in particular He went to take a look at a modal. Razor and uh-huh it's bold of this particular store to have put the motor razor on a stand Not just behind glass but like a demo unit that was there and that thing was destroyed Loyd and not only because people probably didn't know how to properly handle a phone like that with a screen that even moto themselves said has a bit of a bump to it or Bumps rather to it. There might actually be creases and curves to it because that's just the nature of the rather flexible display. They have on there Well I guess people were. We're just like digging their fingernails into it enough that eventually the screen just started to peel off and it just got really bad. The fact Motorola is even warning people about how to use the device. Outright doesn't bode well for that particular. Form factor now. The Motor Razor was exciting. It's still is and I would love to try it on myself. Early reports are not all that favourable at the moment especially considering that a phone like this with a twenty five hundred million power battery and The fact that has a flexible display mean that some some of the flagship phone experiences that a lot of us are. Let's just say use to. I don't want to say that we're all spoiled or anything. But we're all kind of used to these flagship phone experiences. Green says it's just not going to be the case in the razor. The specs are not really up to par. In that case the processor's not super powerful. The battery goes out in like three or four hours of screen time at the most host and then of course the screen is something you Kinda have to. You have to baby it a little bit. I do give the motorise or a little bit of credit because it has the screen on the cover which still allows you to do a few things especially when it comes to notifications. Maybe you can think of it. Like a smartwatch. Just on the outside of a phone perhaps But even though it gives you a little bit of of that connectivity and that type of usage you still need to open the phone in order to do literally anything else. And that's the reason why I might be a little bit skeptical all despite my excitement over the galaxies Z.. Flip see I actually have a lot of faith in Z.. Flip that it's not going to have the same problems as the modal razor at least problems that are. It's kind of conjecture but it's kind of clear that some people are having issues with build quality on those and if Modo has to come out and say it themselves well I mean that kind of is a precursor to a lot of stuff. Samsung on the other hand already went through their problems and when they sent out the original galaxy fold to a lot of people on his start to break. They addressed all of those issues. I got to see myself the updated version of the galaxy. Fold yes it did seem to be a sturdier device and a lot of the stuff was addressed so I imagined agenda that same level of thought is going to be put into the Galaxy Z.. Flip and that means. It's going to be a sturdy device but the form factor alone is more novel than it is useful useful in my opinion. See what the galaxy fold. You're not gonna like the outside scream but at least you can use it in that way. And then if you're just really into those big screens or if you just want I want to see how applications will start to adhere to the tablet form factor. More well then you have a tablet in your pocket easier to pocket and literally any other tablet in existence but the Z.. Flip is a smaller version of a current smartphone and were also used to having smartphones already That just being able to fold it down down is novel. It is useful from a USABILITY standpoint. But it doesn't necessarily add to its usability now. Don't get me wrong I know that probably Lee. Some people that I know and including Rodriguez or probably screaming at their Their audio systems right now. I mean because obviously one of the reasons why this form factor you were so important is because there are people out there who want to have smaller devices in general and then it'll become something like our current smartphones When they needed to be? That's it's perfectly fine. It's the same concept that I just presented with the galaxy. Fold where that person wants something. Bigger a tablet a big viewing experience and then they can use it when and they want to it's on demand It's just kind of funny to me. The two different ways of looking at foldable as this is an interesting dichotomy that we're starting to see right now. And the Z flip is going to further that at least in the case of deflate. You're not gonNA have as many problems as what the modal Razor Potentially the Z.. Flip is going to be as expensive though and I'm not looking forward to that but I can almost forgive it a little bit more because the galaxy fold has proven That there is some demand for that phone and the price point is not going to stop certain people I mean. Just look at any any of our friends on the tech twitter sphere and a lot of them have actually put on their own money to get the galaxy
