I think in should be thought of in the same category as an ozzy in terms of like being equipped for swimming and just being equipped for camp life. I mean tom gets all the glory because he he kills the shark and he wins. The of unions by aeon is one of the best lakes survival. Is i think we've seen on the show up until this point.

Were they questioned. Everything to create the best tucson ever like does survivor. palau have emerged. Technically do you call it emerge. I'm not sure these are the kinds of things that they are thinking about over at hyundai where they're questioning every single thing. Because every inch of the all new tucson has been completely redesigned resulting in an suv that is a loaded with available innovations both inside and out from design to technology to safety every aspect of the new tucson has been improved upon. The suv has been completely redesigned. Inside out to create the best tucson ever with all sorts of innovations starting with tech like digital key. That lets you use your phone as a spare key. Which is very impressive because There's so many times where you lose your car keys. You lose your phone too. But what are the chances that you lose your phone and your car keys almost impossible so great job by hyundai then. They've got user profiles like ten and a quarter inch full touch infotainment screen which is very impressive. Because if it was only partial touch would not be as great the quarter inch screen. Nothing to laugh at either an led daytime running lights there stylishly hidden.

Example bay having bama of twenty five is it example say having fifty kilos of lean muscle mass. Is it being able to around five kilometers.

Ferrari now in favour of F1 engine freeze from 2022
"So on the need someone needs to make you some more space but elsewhere in the news. I suppose We should probably start with ferrari. I guess Today they have suggested that it would now back an engine freeze now. This is something that rebels been asking for because as we know home there is expected to undergo palau at the end of two thousand. Twenty one and red bulls ideal scenario that to kind of take on this the engines. But it needs an engine. Free said it doesn't have to fronts the cost of the development itself and ferrari been against this when asked previously and now it's made this year ten john. What's what's changed its mind. Maybe some ferrari engine donna figures. I twenty twenty one engine. Perhaps if you're is classic from london if you're the team in front than you'll be more than happy to freeze anything to stop your rivals have the ability to catch up. And if you'll behind you want everything you put in development totally free so you can make the the steps forward that you want Was very interesting. Ferrari of basically said that they would support a potential freeze from twenty twenty. Two still get some scope for improvement next year under certain conditions. Which are that the the all new engine that formula increasing. Whatever this new hybrid will be from. Twenty supposedly twenty-six comes forward to twenty twenty-five and efan commits heavily to sustainable fuels of this biofuel carbon recaptured fuel. Or whatever that that final full mattis but so it wants to see you. If one heading in these this direction the engines in on that front will accept a freeze on that front but then kristen hornets spike in tonight and was asked about furrer situation said he always very happy. This is really important at then said but it's important that There is freedom to develop engines in this freeze. If you're behind the to catch up so to me. That's not a freeze. So i think you know may be one of those scenarios that we have in having the coronavirus world especially with the uk government. We come out of lockdown into something. That's still lockdown. Down isn't cool to lockdown so is going to head to a scenario of an engine. Freeze isn't actually an engine.
Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs
"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.
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.

Right. Except for one of the returning players one didn't they know well, no, no. It's a little confusing, so then. There was also the place called the edge of extinction where people got voted out.

Why Did Japan's Emperor Abdicate?
"Now, our main story this morning, the abdication of Japan's Emperor Akihito Peter Landers is our Tokyo bureau chief so Peter who is Emperor Akihito tell me a little bit about him. And why did he decide to abdicate Emperor Akihito's eighty five years old? He was eleven and a half about when World War Two ended. So he did experience a little bit of the war and had to escape to the countryside. Because Tokyo was being bombed so severely and that really shaped his whole life. He inherited the throne from his father, emperor Hirohito in nineteen eighty nine and has been on this road for thirty years and a big part of his reign has been about remembering the war, and what it did to Japan. What it did to other countries in Asia? He's gone as far as the island of Palau in the Pacific to commemorate the war dead and remember some of the battles of the war. And at eighty five years old he was suffering from. Lining health. Although he still is in fairly good health for a man of his agent is able to walk around and attend ceremonies speak and so on so he's in relatively good health for a man of eighty five but several years ago after having been hospitalized for prostate matter. And so on maybe cut that breast that it was president but several years ago after some health troubles. He told the nation in a sort of indirect way that he felt it was his time to to abdicate and a law was passed allowing him to do so. And so on may I the throne will pass to his eldest son Crown Prince Naruhito about Nara told what's he like he is a very mild mannered fellow from all accounts plays the viola. He studied the history of river transport at Oxford University in the nineteen eighties. And. So and he has an has expressed an interest in in global affairs, and it was interesting to read the transcript of his press conference a year ago when he was asked about events in the news that have made an impression, and he cited a very specific figure for the number of refugees in the world and talked about global conflicts that were increasing the number of refugees, and he mentioned this year that he would like his wife ground prince's Moscow. The next empress to take a greater role in in helping him talk about some of these issues and address them. So I think he'll bring a more global perspective to the throne. There's been some criticism in Japan that the current rules don't allow for a woman to take the throne. It seems to come in contrast to prime minister Shinzo Abe's efforts to try and get more women in the workforce. Yes, it's an obvious contradiction with prime minister Abbas policy, he talks about a society. A women can shine. And yet here is the symbol of the nation. And only a man can shine in that role under the current law.

"Movie dot com. All right Palau, the movie dot com. You know, I know a lot of you on this program. We love movies that Hollywood doesn't do. We like different. I've been saying the the the golden era the golden age of Hollywood is dead gone and buried and one of the reasons for this is, you know, everything in terms of communications boost so fast. There are now so many options and choices available for people. Well, it is now brought a new level of of creativity to moviemaking where Hollywood always use to get to decide on their own. Well, okay, maybe we'll have Jennifer Aniston fall in love for the four thousand time with a different guy break up then get back together. Then Mary, and then somebody dies or something like that. I mean, how many more times can we say the same movie and one variation there of or, you know, I guess superman and spider man, and Batman and bat woman. You know, okay. The comic series of everybody is it's all great. And I like all the Star Wars movies. But when I go to a movie, I want to be touched. I wanna learn something I want one of the things I've learned being three hours a day on radio one hour day on television is the two most powerful forms of communication and not radio. And TV, you know. I it's it's music, and it's also movies. You know, I sit in the back of a movie theater when let there be light came out and literally watch people sobbing at a level. You just can't believe that for me was success because that was the whole point to save you can touch people's hearts. And movies. Do it all the time. There are certain songs. You play me a song. I'm just you know. Wow. It just hits you write your solar plexus and adjust. It's amazing. But you know, when you think of Amazon prime and you think a net flicks. And you think of, you know, five hundred channels and on demand this and on Hulu in. I mean, you have more choices options than ever before. And that means the networks don't have the power. They once did thank God. That's why Fox News on big news. We beat all of the networks regularly. They did a special the other night on Muller in the investigation. Hannity our show. Thanks to all of you. We beat them like three to one and they are on the network. Paulao the movie dot com just to give you a little synopsis. This is an amazing movie. I found out about this from Linda it's about a ten year old kid, and obviously it's named after him Palau, Louis Louis Powell hours his name, and how the families changed forever within a few years of the father's death, Louis siblings mother. They're destitute and Louis was forced to discontinue his education at an elite boarding school in Argentina provide for his family as they slip into poverty, by the way. I go back to my grandfather's. They were poor nothing. They arrive in America with not a penny. No government help either. And then anyway in the years that follow you you you're on this journey with Louise he devotes his life to God. He begins to preachy launches a radio show, and he's ultimately invited to the United States to study become a missionary and his decision to study in the US is, you know, obviously, not easy. He's got to leave his family. His mom behind a sisters behind. But he's following what his heart is calling him to do during seminary school. He's encouraged to plant churches, and and teach you know, he's still a child then he gets a vision from God about good news and about the gospels and to fulfil the vision, he's got overcome a lot of challenges, by the way. Lice not easy. Read the book the road, less traveled starts life is hard. You recognize that fundamental truth, and you start realizing life can be easier. Just by seeing that truth anyway to fulfill this vision, you go on this journey with him an unexpected encounter with Billy Graham at one point. Look, I don't want to give away the whole story. Luis Palau the movie dot com is really worth your time. And you know, it's gasden Paul's or gastonia phone to use the proper pronunciation Paul's you, play the older Palau. Yes, you're right. You play. So you played the older version and also with us here, we have Santiago Ashoka. Yeah. That's right. Okay. You play the younger one. So this is a real life story. Right. Yes. Yes. It's Lewis's life and through Liz's life. We'll talk about hope we'll talk about God, we talk about love in this particular moment of the world, we need to talk about that. And through all those words in through a Louise we'll talk about God, our relationship with God with second chances life, and it's an honor for us. It's tough for any kid to lose the data. Ten right. Yes. Of course, an end to be pulled out of a boarding school have to go to work for your family. That's actually the story of my father. Really? My father's mother died after childbirth three months after she gave birth do complications of that. And his family had no money. I mean when talk about dirt poor it was real. I always say stand on the shoulders of my parents, and my grandparents Santiago, how did you like how what what does this movie do for you? When mean for you this? This was huge for me like my relationship with my father is one of the most important things that I have in fact, probably the most important thing when I read this something was like really important to me that when I realized then when he lost his father something when I read that something hit me like I said, I need to do this like I was. So so amazed with their relationship. They had and is this particular scene that I had in the movie he's already gone, but he's he's talked to remember the things he stat tell him, and he remember him like into theatre like seeing these movie about a lot of things they talk about. And I was reading these seen on the bus going to work, and I start crying like little baby. So realized like this this was for me this. This was a message that I need to communicate to people not just about their relationship. It's about love. It's about a message. Let me let me bring in because Luis Palau is actually on our phone right now. And also joining us as Rebecca Hubbell who helped put this project together you by the way, you work with people like Mel Gibson and over the years. Yes. So you can answer that is shaking your heads met. Yes. That's how we met and how long have, you know, Mel because I think he's one of the best movie makers in Hollywood by far few years working on some projects with. Luis Palau what a life you've lived. I don't know. How old you are? Now. Hold are you? I'm an old guy. But you know, I mean, it was a pretty brave journey you've had and and the trials tribulations the leap of faith that you've had.

And I happen to be close. I'm an old guy. You know, something I will tell you this. I always say every time I want a wind in life or complain in life, and I don't let my kids get away with that. Either. I went on it because they had it so much harder. What you're what you went through so much harder. But in the end it defines you like if you take away people's struggles in life, and that's what I don't like about socialism. Because you're literally robbing them the opportunity to dig down deep within themselves and pull out stuff that they never thought was possible or even knew existed within them. Absolutely. Yeah. I agree with you. You know, the answers basic answers at night. If you have a God centered life, you have a pathway to follow, and you can actually overcome all these obstacles and even make it a stepping stone to encourage people. And that's what I've been trying to do all my life. Sean just a hope other people who are going through tough times. Rather than complain and blame somebody else.

"Movie dot com. All right Palau, the movie dot com. You know, I know a lot of you on this program. We love movies that Hollywood doesn't do we like different? I've been saying the the the golden era the golden age of Hollywood is dead gone and buried and one of the reasons for this, you know, everything in terms of communications boost so fast. There are now so many options and choices available for people. Well, it is now brought a new level of of creativity to moviemaking where Hollywood always use to get to decide on their own. Well, okay, maybe we'll have Jennifer Aniston fall in love for the four thousand time with a different guy break up then get back together. Then Mary, and then somebody dies or something like that. I mean, how many more times can we say the same movie and one variation there of or I guess, superman and spider, man, and Batman and bat woman. You know, okay. The comic series of everybody. Is it's all great. And I like all the Star Wars movies. But when I go to a movie, I want to be touched. I wanna learn something I want when one of the things I've learned being three hours a day on radio one hour a day on television is the two most powerful forms of communication and not radio. And TV, you know. I it's it's music, and it's also movies. I sit in the back of a movie theater when let there be light came out, and literally watch people sobbing idle level, you just can't believe that for me was successful. Because that was a whole point to see if you can touch people's hearts and movies. Do it all the time. There's certain songs you play me a song. And I'm just you know. Wow. It just hits you right in your solar plexus and just it's amazing. But you know, when you think of Amazon prime and you think a net flicks. And you think of, you know, five hundred channels and on demand this and on Hulu, and I mean, you have more choices options. Than ever before. And that means the networks don't have the power. They once did thank God. That's why Fox News on big news. We beat all of the networks regularly. They did a special the other night on Muller in the investigation. Hannity our show. Thanks to all of you. We beat them like three to one and they're on the network. Palau the movie dot com just to give you a little synopsis. This is an amazing movie. I found out about this from Linda it talks about a ten year old kid, and obviously it's named after him Palau Louis Lewis Powell hours his name, and how the families changed forever within a few years of the father's death, Louise, siblings, his mother, they're destitute and Louis is forced to discontinue his education at an elite boarding school in Argentina provide for his family as they slip into poverty, by the way. I go back to my grandfather's. They will poor nothing. They arrive in America with not a penny. No government help either. And then any way in the years that follow you you you're on this journey with Louise he devotes his life to God. He begins to preachy launches a radio show, and he's ultimately invited to the United States to study become a missionary and his decision to study in the US is obviously not easy. He's got to leave his family his mom behind sisters behind. But he's following what? His heart is calling him to do during seminary school. He's encouraged to plant churches and teach you know, he's still a child then he gets a vision from God about good news and about the gospels and to fulfil the vision, he's got overcome a lot of challenges, by the way, license. Not easy. Read the book the road, less traveled. It starts. Life is hard. You recognize that fundamental truth, and you start realizing life can be easier. Just by seeing that truth anyway to fulfill this vision, you go on this journey with him an unexpected encounter with Billy Graham at one point. Look, I don't want to give away the whole story. Luis Palau the movie dot com. Is really worth your time. And you know, it's guest in Paul's August stone, if I'm gonna use the proper pronunciation Paul's you play the older Palau. Yes, you're right.

Liz life and through Liz's life. We'll talk about hope we talk about God, we talk about love in this particular moment of the world, we need to talk about that. And through all those words and through. Louise, we'll talk about God our relationship with God with second chances in life. And it's an honor for us. It's tough for any kid to lose the data. Ten right. Yes. Of course, an end had be pulled out of a boarding school have to go to work for your fam-. That's actually the story of my father, really. My father's mother died after childbirth. Three. Three months after she gave birth complications of of that and his family had no money. I mean, he did talk about four. It was real. I always say stand on the shoulders, and my parents, and my grandparents sago, how did you like how what what does this movie do for you would mean for you this? This was huge for me like my relationship with my father is one of the most important things that I have in fact, probably the most important thing when I read this quip. Something was like really important to me when I realized when he lost his father something when I read that something hit me like I said, I need to do this like I was. So so amazed with their relationship. They had is this particular scene that I had the movie he's already gone, but he's he's talked to remember the things he stat tell him, and he remember him like into theatre like seeing these movie about a lot of things they talk about. And I was reading these seen on the bus going to work. I still crying like little baby. So. Realized like this. This was for me. This was a message that I need to communicate to people not just about like your relationship. It's about love. It's our messages. Let me let me bring in because Luis Palau is actually on our phone right now. And also joining us as Rebecca Hubbell who helped put this project together, by the way, you work with people like Mel Gibson over the years. Yes. So you can answer shaking your head. Yes. That's how we met and how long have, you know, Mel because I think he's one of the best movie makers in Hollywood by far few years working on some projects. Oh, yes. Yes. Luis Palau what a life you've lived. I don't know. How old you are? Now. Hold are you? I'm an old guy. Eighty two. I could be. But you know, I mean, it was a pretty brave journey you've had and and the trials tribulations the leap of faith that you've had. Your life stories very inspiring. Have you seen the movie yet? You know, I have seen snippets. I haven't seen the final chronic. I'm a leader as you are. And from I've known you Sean because I watch on television. And I liked the quotation that you often let not your heart be troubled that helped me when I was a kid. That was exactly it's John chapter fourteen when my father died, and I said to my mom when did he go where we see him again? And she said yes museum again without doing comes to go to don't let your eyes be troubled, you believe in God believe also me. So every time you quote closing some of your shows. I think I'm one with Sean things are going to lead him on the air. Here we meet I thank you so much. It was a beautiful life. I've lived in over now. My son's on following another right? I'm so excited. Your grandfather Winston similar situations because we've had it so beautiful in the latest generation has not suffered as much as some of our full did. And I happen to he goes guy. You know, something I will tell you this. I always say every time I wanna wine in life or complain in life. And I don't let my kids get away with that. Either. Because they had it so much harder. What you went through so much harder. But in the end it defines you like if you take away people's struggles in life, and that's what I don't like about socialism because that you literally robbing them of the opportunity to dig down deep within themselves and pull out stuff that they never thought was possible or even knew existed within them. Absolutely. Yeah. I agree with you. You know, the answers basic answers in nice, if you have a God centered life, you have a pathway to follow and you can actually overcome all these obstacles and even make it a stepping stone to encourage people. And that's what I've been trying to do all my life. Sean just on people who are going through tough times rather than complain blame somebody else. Look look to God he has a plan work it out. We'll card will open doors. You know? So. That's why I'm excited. All right. Rebecca going to give you the last word on this and how people can now see this.
