Iran Executes Wrestler Accused of Murder After He Took Part in 2018 Protests

"For his life to be spared. 27 year old Naveed of Curry had been convicted for the killing of a security guard during anti government protests in 2018. Mr Curry said he'd been tortured. Into making a confession. Among those who called for the Iranian of thought is to show mercy where President Trump on the International Olympic Committee, which says it's shocked. By the execution. Tara. Separate FA is the researcher on Iran for human rights. What she's been telling me more about Navid of Curry and his standing is arrested in Iran. Naveed Afghan, participated in several national competitions and had run up position and the adolescence and youth national championship in Iran. Few years back, and was he taking part in anti government protests in 2018? So there have been several rounds of protests over the past 2 2.5 years in Iran. The protest that Naveed was prosecuted for took place in summer of 2018 in several cities, including in Shiraz, where he lived. So how did he come to be accused of stabbing to death? His security guards and so, according to documents Reviewed on DH news articles have been published about the case on the evening off one of the days that the protest was ongoing. Mr Torre Common who initially was reported as a security officer, but later was introduced as just an employee off the water Waste management company was stabbed to death close to his home. Naveed and his brothers were arrested about a month later. Naveed in one of his brother was also been implicated. And in village murder, were arrested in September of 2018, according to hand written letter by Naveed and that has been published, He experienced severe torture into different detention centers where he was detained. In issue Ross. He was facing dozens of charges in ST separate cases, but the criminal court sentenced him to death in October of last year. 2019 the evidence used against him was mostly confessions. Of him, his brother and a friend, And they all alleged that those confessions were obtained under torture. And in April off this year, the Supreme Court uphold the death sentence and quickly brushed over the serious allegations of torture and failed to investigate that, so there were no independent witnesses who Tied, Mr AFC hurried to the scene of the stabbing a cz faras, you know, according to authorities and footage is that been released? There's footage from one security camera. It is unclear if if the person in the video is exactly Naveed, and if that proves anything, anything beyond reasonable doubt, why do you think that the Iranian authorities decided to make an example off him? If you like on DH to execute him, even though there was this into A national outcry. I think that the rush nature off this sentence because Iranian authorities disregarded the procedural rules that they need to abide by and when executing someone shows that it had a political motive behind it, And I would say it's probably an attempt to defy the international and domestic outcry against the death penalty. So was there a campaign inside Iran to have him sped? Since July of this year, there has been an ongoing campaign. Online, mostly with the hashtag don't execute against the death sentence that have been issued in relation to the protest that have happened over the past two years. And it is a growing a domestic movement, and many people also try to raise awareness and work in different capacities to save Naveed is life arranging from people who were working on convincing the Supreme Court for a retrial to the ones who were hoping for.

Postponed Tokyo Olympics hit 1-year-to-go mark -- again

"The postponed Tokyo Olympics hit the year to go mark again, but many Japanese say they should be canceled by Stephen Wade of the Associated Press in Tokyo. The Tokyo Olympics have hit the one year to go mark again, but few are in a mood to celebrate. Tokyo observed the original date a year ago, that was before the covid nineteen pandemic postponed the Olympics and pushed back the opening to July. Twenty third twenty twenty one fireworks cascaded over Tokyo Bay back then and local celebrities unveiled the medals in a highly choreographed show. There's none of that this time. Organizers produced a fifteen minute. No fans event on Thursday inside the new national stadium, screening a video to promote next year's opening. They also teased the presence of the Olympic flame, which arrived in Japan in March and had been hidden away ever since. Low Key event on a rainy day captures the local mood a poll a few days ago from Japanese news agency. Kyodo repeated the results of recent surveys. Japanese are skeptical. The Games should go ahead and doubtful they will. The poll showed twenty three point. Nine percent favored holding the Olympics thirty six point four percent said the Olympics should be postponed again and thirty three point seven percent said it should be cancelled. Organizers and the International Olympic Committee of ruled out another postponement. The Tokyo Games would be cancelled this time if they can't be held

My name is Julius boy, cough and I. Teach Political Science at Pacific University, Oregon. Professor boy cough has written four books about the Olympics and as it turns out. He's also a former member of the US men's Olympic soccer team. and. That is really why the Olympics have stuck around and Ben so successful. Were it not for the athletes? We wouldn't really have the Olympic Games of course the money shuffle has become a big part of that. We can talk about that later, but for athletes in lesser known sports, sake curling in the Winter Olympics or maybe equestrian or something like that in the Summer Olympics, this is their one chance to make big. Now I think we have to remember that. The Olympics the Olympic Games themselves are a value or ideal driven event. I'm Katherine Moon and I am a professor of political. Science at Wellesley College I study issues related to eastasia particularly the Koreas and I love to talk about culture and values in international politics. As much as we say, it is about pure athleticism and fairer competition. It really was an is about ideals, human, being the human spirit to strive for excellence, and to do once best, and to be proud to be wist others who are excellent in their fields. And I think that's what drives people to go to the Olympics and to watch the Olympics. It's changed my life completely. Cultures and values together. Research big. So. It's July and we were supposed to start watching the summer Olympics in about a week, so what the heck happened! Yeah. The Olympics got corona virus and. They had to push back for a year. When you look back at that moment, there were calls to cancel the Olympics. There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success. What's at stake for Japan as the situation plays out. Well Japan has plunged a lot of money and prestige and human capital into making the Games happen if we think back to when they were originally bidding on the Olympics, they said that the entire escapade would cost seven point three billion dollars, but by the time this summer rolled around, they had spent some twenty eight billion dollars, according to an audit by the Japanese government, and so that's four times what they had originally planned postponing means adding anywhere from two to six billion dollars. Those are the best guesses that we have now. So what's at stake for Japan is they've already spent way more money than they expected and now they might not even get the Olympics to actually

Remember the Olympics?

"I'll be the first to admit that I am not a huge sports fan. I don't follow the NBA and I tend to wander away from the TV during Football Games, but I do love to watch the Olympics, and that's because it's actually super cool to see whole nations rallying behind one team. It becomes something more than a game. It becomes this uniting cultural moment. It's like a global holiday, and so with a little bit of extra couch time on my hands I was very ready to tune into this summer's Tokyo Olympics the perfect distraction. But the July twenty twenty Olympic. Games aren't going to be held this month. They've been postponed by a full year. This decision wasn't made lightly. And in fact, Japan is working around the clock to try to figure out how to keep their games. Despite a global pandemic, it's part of a long story for decades. Just like their athletes. Countries have competed fiercely to host the Games despite mounting evidence that they usually represent a significant financial loss, and that made us ask why, if not money, what's the games offer that so special and worth so much effort I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today, the Olympics soft power and the deep running politics of the World Games.

He's a CNN commentator. It's a big deal to have him calling us from his car. So welcome wash minivan respect and the Dad Boston okay. Here's the amazing thing dear listener. We are joined by his wife. She's a brilliant physician. Her name is Dr Sarah. She's a physician at Georgetown Family Medicine. And Hey you're married to watch you've done this for a while you're the euro. Welcome to the doctor. I thank you so much for having me and I'm calling from the cars. Yes so watches in the fan in our driveway. And I'm in the car in the driveway and they're watching the children from six feet away. This is about as social distancing as you can get this is the most socially responsible podcast in the world amazing amazing and I just love. What was just told me that he wants to do which is to wrap me up in bubble wrap so that. I stay healthy. Thank God I am healthy. In fact I just tweeted out today. I was just like how I'm going to be grateful for having a roof over my head husband. Who LOVES ME? My kids at home. home job. So we're GONNA start podcast on a note of gratitude and I'm just so thankful that was and Sarah are joining. Hulu me because this is a big deal. It's our first time to have a married couple. It's also our first time living through a pandemic so here we are. We're surviving there are now over three hundred thousand cases worldwide with over thirty five thousand Kovic in nineteen cases in the United States making this the country with the third most cases after China and Italy. We're actually just eleven days behind Italy in terms of trajectory. So keep that in. Mind as you guys know. It's putting such a strain on our healthcare system The CDC is telling healthcare workers to improvise when they have a shortage of masks. What we have several states multiple states that have you know basically placed some form of shelter in place or lockdown protocol. I have to say I'm surprised that not all fifty have done it so Sunday night. The president of the United States his name is president trump. You know he said this and it was really it was really It was a moment because he said that the National Guard is going to be deployed to New York California and Washington State. That made a lot of people of color really uncomfortable. Yeah and then also on Tuesday the Prime Minister of Japan. Avi Shinzo he said. The International Olympic Committee will postpone the Summer Olympics. They were supposed to be held in Tokyo this summer. Now they'll take place no later than summer of twenty twenty one so I just want to back up for a moment to understand. And we're we're laughing through this because we're we're releasing and because we're with people care about right now on this past but Every single day it's just like Oh my God. No joke like no joke. How serious diseases and why? We should have taken these measures back in February but Sarah Update us. What what we've learned so far about cove in nineteen you know. I just have to agree with you. I've just say we are already weeks late and doing everything. Normally when you're late to do things it's like. Oh the toll measured in something. That might not be that relevant right now. The the tragedies toes measured in lives loss. So every day that there's a misstep or delay it's going to be measured and more lives lost absolutely horrifying so where we're at right now. I mean at least in the US like you said we actually don't even know the two cases. Those are reported cases when you don't know the real official number because we've been under testing and we haven't been testing and we haven't been tracing and just like the World Health Organization said it took a think about sixty seventy s from the first reported case to reach the first one hundred thousand cases and then after that it took just eleven to reach the second one hundred thousand cases and then just four days to reach a third one hundred thousand cases so this is a horrible buyers exponentially affecting people all over. So this is scary and we are not overreacting or under reacting and as public health professionals. We always say if we do our job right then. People will say that we overreacted. And that's okay because then that means we're all okay but unfortunately that's not the case right now so sir one of the things that we did for this show because we have a real community of people who listen to us right so we're familiar even though we're not touching each other the ask our our listeners to send questions and one of our listeners on twitter reverberate wire asked if it is spreading through for example gas pumps and how long it lasts on surfaces. I mean sometimes when you're seeing this information it's its terrifying how long the virus can last on different surfaces. What do we know is is fact about this question? So we're always finding out new information. This is a new virus. Things are always changing but what we know as of now is it's highly effective so are not is the rate of infectivity of any virus and if it's greater than one then that means the virus is going to keep spreading and if it's less than one that means you're gonNA see decrease in number infections And when it's greater than one what that means is so far the SARS coronavirus two are not is. It's around three so for every one person infected you're likely in fact three other people And this is without without social distancing and all those measures so one of the reasons it's so infectious again. The flu is like one one point five so this is almost doubled infectivity rate of the flu. 'em Is because it does last on surfaces right now. What we're finding is akin lost on cardboard boxes or paper for anywhere up to twenty four hours and it can last on plastic or steel for two three days. Whoa WHOA Yikes. Yeah I want to say based on what I've been reading. The literature shows that that's not the highest rate of transmission can get transmitted that way but the highest rate is droplets through a person to person contact.

"The US Olympic Committee was broke and we made hundreds of millions of dollars. It's the infrastructure and people do things like build a new railway to so cheap. Well, that's not like the Olympics that was a fifty billion or whatever dollar railway that people put into the Olympics as that's inherent cost of boondoggle, and you're getting your boondoggles in early now so that they can't better than that. We delayed twenty twenty eight let periscope I and twenty twenty four and we negotiated one hundred sixty million dollars up front so sixteen million dollars a year has been going into doubling the number of kids, who get swim classes, and African American Latino kids over half of them, don't know how to swim, and it's the second leading accidental killer of kids under twelve. So we, we are putting into public good now and main reasons why can get away with it and other places are right to avoid, it is not building Olympic village. We're using UCLA. So we're just renting those rooms were we've got all the infrastructure, the most expensive stadium in human history has been built without public subsidy in Inglewood here for the Rams and the chargers we're gonna use that we have the call a Siham. We have the staple center. So we're just renting the incredible sports facilities. We already have here we have velodrome, we've got tennis court. So most other cities are smart to not bid, but we hope to get the Olympics to kind of chill out, on needing to build so many new things. So the moral of the story is the Olympics should only be held in Los Angeles. One person. I want to ask, and we asked this to a lot of substantial people, what's something that you believed for a long time to be true until you found out that you were wrong. Well, I mentioned it already. I think that was one of those Democrats always thought you can never lower taxes, and I think that I've seen in practice that businesses do make their decisions based on what we're taxes are. That's definitely one. I think the other thing I used to dismiss people's fears, and that let's say in a town hall meeting where people don't want a homeless shelter in their neighborhood, that it was okay to just say you're wrong, or somebody's racist about something this that, and the other, and I realized over time you have to kind of. Understand people's fears that they usually come from a real place. And until you understand that you can't transform. The mayor told us a lot of things about Los Angeles. Any facts, we need to be concerned with. So a couple of things that are interesting. He was rated one of the top five most dateable mayors in America. Despite the fact that he's married to the incredible Amy wake you, I was going to say I'm not dateable at all. I did want to say one thing about diversity, which was interesting. There is a large study that just came out that ranks LA itself, not greater Los Angeles. As the sixty third most diversity in terms of racial, and ethnic. Diversity moves up to the eight most diverse city when you take into account income education, language, industry class age religion cetera. The most interesting thing I think you talked about was how hometown buffets also have diversity. You'll be interested to know that in Canada. Some buffets offer jellied moose knows in Japan, you can get tuna eyeballs, but most impressive was a man in Springfield, Massachusetts who ate all the diversity and was kicked out of a buffet after spending more than seven hours, onsite eating more than fifty pounds of food. God. So it is possible to get all the diversity. Thank you, make them on. And thanks specially to mayor Erica, said he of Los angel-. Our next guest is a size. Malla gist to Caltech, and she's a leading thirty on earthquake risk. Would you. Please welcome. Lucie jones. Okay, lucy. It was so interesting to me that people clapped earthquakes. So tell us something, we don't know about our quakes start there. Most people think of California's a place with a lot of earthquakes. The reality is, we don't have enough. Now, maybe that's only something small just just going to say, but we can look at the geology, and see how many we should have, and especially the last couple of decades. Ben particularly quiet we call it earthquake drought..

"Hey, guys, we're about to get into my interview with the creative minds behind a film called Olympic dreams. And those people are Alexi Pappas, Nick Kroll and Jeremy teicher now Olympic dreams, you probably haven't heard of. But I am happy to evangelize for it. I saw a little while ago. And it premiered here it's off by south west down in Austin. And it is really like a small miracle movie. I'm sure it's going to get distribution soon. And you guys will be able to see it. But I thought that the story of the making of the movie was so cool that we would be able to share it with you. Now Alexi is a Olympic athlete. So she is actually out there. She ran in two thousand sixteen Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and she and her husband, Jeremy are filmmakers as well. Jeremy's a director and really accomplished filmmaker on every level because he is essentially on this film. Mm-hmm. Is his own crew. And here's what they did. They got in with the Olympic Committee who asked them to be artists in residence, and they went and made a romantic comedy in pian Chang during the Olympics. And it was really it's a really incredible accomplishment. Basic, the basic story set up is that Alexi plays a woman in Penelope who's competing as a cross country. Skier she competes early in the game. So she has a lot of free time afterwards. She's kind of feeling a little bit of an emptiness after competition, and she meets a volunteer dentist at the games. Played by Nick Kroll, and they kind of have this this worlwide end friendship slash romance throughout the the movie and every scene takes place in some part of the Olympic experience. Whether it's the opening ceremonies that dining hall at the Olympic village in the dorms in and around peon Chang going to the pennant behind the scenes of these ethnic events. I kind of have like a little bit. A frustration. Sometimes when I'm watching television because you can kind of see see the seems a little bit. You can see people they're shooting on sound stages. They're shooting in a lot of interiors because that's easy to control you DC to light you can kind of get things in and out. But sometimes it doesn't feel of the world. This movie is kind of remarkable because it feels both very of the world, you get to see all these incredible locations, and you know, they're running around in parking lots and in like food courts, and then they're like at a karaoke bar or a nightclub. But then it also is a world basically like ninety nine point nine nine nine nine percent of us will never get a chance to see. We will not be Olympic athletes. We don't know what it's like to train all your life to do something. So incredible..

"Terms and conditions apply. Now, we can get back to the show. I'm curious if you've done work where you know, it's actually like within a specific organization that, you know, it's not necessarily an entrepreneur trying to network, but perhaps it's like within a specific company of, you know, bringing people within that little community together. I'm curious if there's been any kind of work that you've done around that. This past summer in about three month span I was hired to speak to Lincoln and bell media, which is like a broadcast media platform in Canada. And then the Olympic Committee so miserable. Olympics like for Canada the Olympics here. So the Canadian Olympic committee. So I mean team Russia doesn't know anything about. Yeah. Maybe someday. So these are all large companies unique personalities and mutually exclusive from each other. And in each of them, I was basically just talking about appreciation recognition giving thanks at organizational level because me running my own business hitting the road a lot like right mound. Thank you cards. That's impactful, but highly different world from one of these companies in what's exciting for me is that I'm going into these massive companies. And I'm speaking people every time in my head. I'm like this is kinda like, I'm literally. Yes. Vote handwritten thank-you cards and every time even at fireside every time I get so my head. I'm like, I should have sleepy telling him something that's like powerful impactful and innovative because simple. Simple, basic, and so. It seems like it could be something that's very surface level. I could I can understand where you would maybe getting your head and like second gusts that and be like this is a big company. This is linked in. And I'm talking about. Thank you. Right. Yeah. Some literally coming in with these like boxes of blank, thank you cards. I'm heading pens and already like they're sitting there with their ipads with their cell phones. Or like, you know, getting thrown because go work to do. And I'm like you go to go. I mean, you experience it a fire set you walked in you got a blank card. You've got a panel. Everyone's like, okay. Yeah. Sure. I don't know what I'm gonna do it. This. But but there's some mistake to like. All right. I'm kind of listening in every time I speak to these companies. I'm reminded at the end like, oh, this this was the powerful impactful innovative thing because everyone's so focused on tech everyone so focused on scaling everyone so focused on speed in fishy in how can we just like copy paste? So you come in with this seventeen hundreds method of feather Panin piece of paper. Yeah. And it's so it in itself is innovative because innovation is just something different. And now the things that are old are now becoming rare which therefore become new, and I love it. Because. All it is asking people to pause and do a thing that they likely have done which is for nothing related to money for nothing related to job description for nothing related to deadlines. Think of someone that's important to you and tell them when they don't expect it, and it shakes people up like people, they get stressed state might like it might cry. They might get excited might giggle. I have people making live phone calls inside the company like I literally have people come on stage in their phoning like their sister. Their husband their parent their old college roommate in inviting them to just give them a random. Thank you. And it makes people freak out. But they're so excited to do with only I don't know. This is weird. And hit is weird. I save at this is a weird. But but it's important as the powerful stuff. The and these are the things that unfortunately or source, mentally when there's tragedy we do this like if there's a natural disaster, or if there's a sudden death or even a desk just that we knew would come in our family or life. Then people start gushing the appreciation. So I'm just trying to insert that before tragedy. Does what it always does? And one thing I love about it is that we've talked about it in terms of like your personal life. We've talked about it. In terms of being like entrepreneur, we talked about it in terms of organizations, and it really is something that people can do like a cross board..
