Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny in grave but stable condition after suspected poisoning
"Alexei Navalny, the face of Russia's opposition, a lawyer, a politician and a harsh critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Today, Navalny isn't an intensive care unit in Siberia. Suspected of poisoning reporter Charles Mains joins us from Moscow Charles How did all this play out and hasn't been established? That someone did indeed. Try to poison navalny? Well, it's still a developing story. And as far as whether you indeed was poisoned or not, is still an open theory, depending on who you talk to. We do know that he was fine home from Tomsk in Siberia back to Moscow. Along the flight. He didn't feel well, which prompted an emergency landing in Omsk not to be confused with Tomsk. Navarone now is actually in a medically induced coma on a respirator at the hospital there. Doctors say he's in serious but stable condition, although their quote fighting for his life Also lets his wife Julia, and his personal doctor now there's well that there were reports have some delays in getting access to Navalny initially with lots of police on the scene, So how did this happen? Have you heard any theories? Will his spokesperson I care? Young. Bush made comments to media here. So she says he just drank some black tea at the airport before the flight, and it's obvious that he was poisoned at that moment. Idea here being that hot liquid was more likely to absorb quickly into his body. You know, In fact, a passenger named Pavel Lebedev took a photo of navalny sitting at the cafe in the airport before he got on the flight. He appeared to be drinking tea and later the two of them ended up on that same flight. Andi. It's interesting that some point heat this level have noticed Howl's coming from the laboratory realized that the cries were coming from Navalny, and he ended up detail ing all this in a post to social media once he touched down in arms. So that was at the airport. What else can you tell us about the suspected poisoning? Is there any talk of a possible suspect or suspects or or a motive? No suspects yet certainly know among Navalny supporters. They find this to be no accident. Not surprising. They think it's politically motivated. Navalny has made his fair share of enemies with Siri's reports on corruption in the highest rungs of the Russian government and off Russian business. He's certainly been attacked numerous times before, including in 2017, when provocateurs doused him with a green dye that partially blinded him for a period. Then again in 2019 when he was exposed to some toxic substance while serving a month prison term, which caused some skin lesions, But he made it. Okay on course, there's this troubling pattern of enemies or perceived enemies. Of the Russian state being poisoned, Attacked, sometimes killed, you know in this prompts this constant debate here over who's really behind them, and specifically whether Vladimir Putin really gains from these brazen attacks on his opponents, and that the Kremlin says they're designed to make Putin look bad, and I want to bring in another voice here. This is Andre Kalashnikov, an analyst with the Moscow Carnegie Center here. Even if Kremlin doesn't know anything involved Squad Strange because it means that this kind of events are uncontrollable. FSB local If his B Saman emus off, no one could do it. Without essentially from Kremlin Now. The other option, says Kalashnikovs that the's orders or indeed, coming from the top from Putin. The point is, we can suspect but never seem to really know and interesting enough. The reaction to today's news from the Kremlin spokesman Was to wish Navalny speedy recovery reporter Charles Mains in Moscow. Thank you very much for this.

My first job the way I felt around him was just remarkable and the way around. Barrington's Roma for so respected invalid. And they women saw and I remember just before and it was a week before we we shot my heart out an aunt and I just. I just said it's taking me time to get to where I wanted today by.

Indirectly your mental. I think the thing is lovely is a great thing in Kabul good will. Hunting has always been a young reasons. I think it came out a time when I started to believe that this is possible. The story these two guys Believing in themselves we'd rather take money and being in because we believe in and an and writing something that they could be as well which was brilliant and it's just a wonderful lady but for me to this day I still stand by this in.

Sometimes there they live up to that and sometimes they're very difficult to that.

He's someone I've listened to be years and now we have a mutual of love. Didn't care three dates and that's how kind of weak because yes clubs and what an incredibly kind generous man he is and he was incredibly supportive of all film and continues to be to this day. It's for Since it was originally released so I think this is some of that. Us's opinion respects in and then for them to speak their kind of thing. That was lovely. But you're in some ways that was that was the way he thinks about film Very much the way I think about film. I think you know I think that's why as as Christie Find him say a good gauge up. T. For many many years and again so you can be uplifting many many different ways from three different material. They're people in my everyday life. That inspired the mental me. They're all the people at Khalid a mentioned earlier that he already when the Ryan Film Stories Magazine The I think it was about him because he just was sung inspiring and I think he was a massive tiny putting off.

I love my hair because one she says because when dancers loved sunset and he used to play. The sunset plays the clarinet beautifully. And that was that was that was this kind of thing he would say and do and and again. Just recognize that. It's not always about your technical ability. It's about your belief in your reason for doing things and nothing but you never saw the reason you're doing it. And you invest in courses you will achieve it. May sometimes posture titans by not.

It doesn't have to be hard aggressive fast or any of those things. It can be gentle calm and nice. Which kind of goes against those viral videos of older people achieving success and that that kind of thing and I thought really for me is the thing that is I mean every single conversation develops blossoms in my brain over time and I take lots of things racist but in the first instance I really feel like that's a real gift that you give an actually is that it doesn't have to be and I think so too. The backdrop of the fall in the film industry is an interesting one because shame that it has to be aggressive and big and loud and Brash end.

"Duncan pay so nice to have you on the podcast. Thank you for joining me. Thank you for having me. It's lovely to be honest. Well I think back to. Why started the Magan show and much of it was about finding inspiration in the stories of people behind brands? Because you know my background is as a beauty and as the show was growing it was full a couple of weeks ago it was. It's it's really grown and expanded. But it's never really lost that seed of inspiring stories from inspirational people. And I think your story is wonderful because you are someone who has turned a passion for film into your job and I think a lot of people would probably say feel passionate about films my passion for the Marvel Movies for example. I think should get me into all of the marvel after parties the entire. It doesn't work like that and would be but you have. I think it's extraordinary. So for the context of we'll tell the entire story but in your thirties you wrote a film that went onto a win win awards and that was I. Guess the beginning of You. Starting appro appropriate Film career but the journey has not been. You're someone who did film studies at school and it was always going to be your destiny for a long time. It was something. Did you feel. It was inaccessible. I think I think from a young age is something that always had an interesting and back to the first. Vhs I watched was Indiana Jones. Like an Best friends at school. We were about six years old or whatever it was and his dad worked for radio rentals and he had video play and we watched it and are just remember dislike. It was amazing. Then start watching movies. I I was quite sane some sense any thirty two kid and which we spend a lotta time growing up watching movies. I think always had a love and interest for it didn't really until my maintains con considered that you could actually be something around that and I think even at school. I felt that it was achievable. Because I wasn't academic Necessary like I loved English. Our loved stories and storytelling. But I couldn't advise spend it would be difficult time to kind of get is ideas out. So Yeah I think definitely at the time so inaccessible and it's a passion as well. I think you can say it's interesting. You said they had an interest in it but an interest doesn't mean you can then go on to make a career out of it like I have an interest in being an actress. I'M NOT GONNA go and do it like I never did but what I mean is I think is a real a really interesting moment when an interest become something more. I wonder whether it's because it defines the person in a way. That is just more than a hobby. I think there is. I think they were kind of like several of my supposed to one big one. I think the obviously the biggest one was was when we finally got you know when we finding my decision to to to make But I think before that there were little steps and in between my phone and my fellow hopping the movie that went on to win awards and claim yeah. I mean it's still. Yeah many still during like in. Somebody's would we think about kind of wear and how it was received But I think there was a belief from the start of it when we go into the it would find an audience at I will we? I think Louis always hype. It would have the kind of response it did but tens of believing in what you're doing is the most important thing and working with people that has a similar kind of belief for similar kind of place in time was really really important but I think before then it was a step suspect I mean for a long time as a kid I was very sporty. Played cricket play Connor Representative Cricket from the age of fourteen to twenty six light Different counties I'm when I was younger I thought that would be my cough. That was I was GONNA About I'd say no insane had the opportunity to to came very close to earning a contract to adopt. You can't cricket club and the that had invited me off want to meet be policy plans Between the winter and the summer when he got the sack so y kind of dreams of that way within had a change of personnel and a might have different ideas and it didn't fit and I think probably. That's win even though I played rips into cricket for another five or six years it wasn't with the same kind of mindset. I felt that that was probably win. That shifted and that was way not stop to think about of film and and and such but initially I was working in The Job Oh what can he can stop around that time but Oh side. I mean my very first job was very fortunate in the sense that through my studies. 'cause did eventually find my way. I did today levels. I mean I I struggled through Jesus English I did. I level deceased Idaho say English while the media and that's when I started This can see this happening. And unfortunately tonight the composer balance in Salem through Allegra quickey club and he lived down the road and just was one of those things and Eventually before the ecology of new jobs anew nothing about music at the time I about film using the film. Tv So I went to what for him? What fame for a couple of years and it was my semis experience. I go to see filmmaking. Tv from another point of view clown but offset that I was still kind of still in my twenties steelhead distinct so I went to Australian play cricket so A season Hasso like five seasons effectively inroads off And then it was like that it was almost like that was when I realized that that was how my life is going to pay and it wasn't going to school and then I was kind of had to get into film. Did Not say I'd left the kind of the industry slightly with having Barrington for that time and then ended up. I took some working care so I started doing what. Jump with learning difficulties and special needs and just started to walk in that field for a few years and then went back to London to work in film for Bit I think again. It was You know I had this experience of kind flitting between the things into the point. I think winds up working for a company could make films which is the time was started by Cyber Frost and had this month period. There and I thought that was going to be. This is this is. This is what we're going to happen and it didn't quite work. Count that wife various reasons I left not decisions but I learned a hell of a lot in that time but it wasn't. It didn't go spice to plan. I suppose it didn't. It didn't take me to where I thought it was gonNA Date because was was was far far more important than I thought. Well what? What was the key learning from that experience? I think the thing I realized at that point was festival myself wanted to write secondly how I would want to work and how this kind of relationships at want to build it people You know and also in terms of timing.

"Have our eyes open if the difficult time hours or so used to being able to interact? And maybe help or go somewhere. I don't know how you guys are feeling that to me is the most difficult thing is to not to sail. Okay there somewhere. We can go and go help out or pitch in. I guess we're going to have to find ways to do it. In in other methods agree that you know what credit is such a wonderful message. I can. That was interesting. That's the first thing that my wife said to me on on on Day web quarantine cheese and she's we'd put the kids to bed and she was sort of sitting there having teen sort of staring off into space outside the window and I'm like what's the matter she said. I just can't imagine being someone who's in an abusive relationship right now and physically cannot walk out the door. They can't leave. They are forced. And I know that there have been efforts. And I've read about a a bunch. Jeff and as you know for anyone that's been on the forefront of a lot of our communities say they're making efforts to bring places where you can go so I don't anything specific in front of me to point to but my heart goes out to those kind of situations and I think that's something that you know all the different good things that will come out of this environment there are there are equally negative. And that's one I think we can't let go and we have to make sure that you know somebody's there to help and for people who feel helpless relationship where they feel. They can't get out. We gotta find a way to to make sure that there's a place for them to go because at that scares me the as as this turns from three weeks to month or two months. Who knows what it's GonNa be that that'll be something that we have to be on top of for sure. It's it's a fantastic thing you do in coordination with the Edmonton Police. Because the more people that make everybody aware of it or say this is a concern. The more chance there is of something positive getting done absolutely. It's a hard pivot after that however Craig I'm skeptical at Best Lia that there will be any hockey in the upcoming months I've been wrong plenty in my life. I've never wanted to be wrong but this time. I really do want to be wrong. Where are you on this side of the Of the conversation. I'm with you Jeff. I I've been pretty realistic as my wife will tell you I. I'm pretty serious realist. I research I read a lot and look at patterns in things that have gone other. Where other places and right from the beginning of this. It's been a huge concern that you know. I think it's naive for us to think that it'll be any different. I think here in in Canada. We've done a fairly good job as you know in our league in our business were tied to the United States to which I think is is GonNa be on the beginning of of some serious problems. So I'd like to be positive. Jefferson think that You know even two months the span might be enough. But I I'm. I'm actually more concerned about next year. And I know from the League's perspective you know. All the League's ultimately love to see a completion of having the Stanley Cup having the NBA Championship. But I'm at this point quite frankly really nervous about even getting next year on the goal I just think with a look at the timelines from around the world and how this has gone on. I don't see a an opportunity for us to be in a position where you can hold these events and even if you have them without fans in the stands which as you know Elliott that doesn't necessarily create a business model that works for anyone either but even if you're able to do that and then from television perspective I think our ratings would be the best that they've been at any point but I just don't see how you coordinate that and keep the the health and wellness of of all the people involved with it To a level that that's safe enough so jeff I'd love to say you know maybe we'll get a playoff tournament going in August and finish this thing off and then get started in October but man. I hope we're right in that regard but I'm really scared that we might get to September October and still not have a sense of when we could get started. I just decided to look at it this way. I don't think we're GONNA have any idea about where we're going to at least June. Yeah so I'm just saying the best I can to keep saying until the beginning of June to try to enjoy life at home as much as I possibly can and I'll see where we are then because the uncertainties the toughest. But we just don't know forget about the life and death that is at the forefront. I mean that's where every time you have a thought or discussion on sports go well. What does that even matter? You know so. Putting this first and foremost did since the health of people that mattered the most. But if you are looking ahead I think it is important from a mental standpoint to not go into every day going okay while I was going to be over next week or not. I think you're right. Elliot you have to have a long-term scope and just say this is the way it's GonNa be well in you know take July first as a as a reset button and see where we are if you can do that. Then like we just talked about with the kids in school or your activities or your energy or your workouts. Whatever you to say. This is the norm that we have to create a pattern that allows you to be feeling mentally sharp and not depressed to not upset I think that's a hard challenge for everyone in everybody will handle it differently and I think even my mother who's in the Chelsea Park in London who now they're going to quarantine them for another fourteen days and now she's eighty four years old. She's on her own and for the most part her life hadn't changed all that much because she didn't do all that much From a going out perspective but not being able to go to church on Sunday not being able to go down now to have dinner and lunch and you know you worry about someone alone like that and even my sister. Christy lives on her own. You know all of a sudden three months of just sitting in your house by yourself. Talking is out in all those great concern. So I think that's the right mentality. Elliot to just have it in your mind that we gotta look forward to the July area and sort of reevaluate where we're going to be that Craig. We all know your great analysts. I.

"The podcast Elliott as we continue check ins around the sports net in hockey night in Canada Camp. Here's a good news story Greg's Simpson is now a grandfather similar. Welcome the PODCAST and congratulations. How does that feel other than perhaps maybe a little bit old? Yeah well thanks Jeff. Thanks Elliott that you all. It's been a great ray of light and sunshine and for our family everybody involved Dylan in Haley. Welcome Stevie on April first of all as you know as Dylan said to have a baby in the middle of a pandemic on April Fools Day. It's quite a combination but as you can imagine it's you know we're all nervous of how long heard her due date. I believe is today and so To have her a few days earlier Sort of settles. Everybody down. Allow things to happen before it gets worse. So we're all just absolutely thrilled Craig. I'm curious how many people have said to dylan or to Haley that Stevie and thirteen years. We'll be officially called a quarantine. Yeah absolutely yeah. I think there's no question about that. And you know. The uniqueness of them of the whole process hit them. What in like everybody will March Eleventh March Twelfth in that range? Where at all of a sudden it was realized. Okay the Cleveland monsters who he plays. Four Columbus's foreign team had a nine day a trip Plan you know on the road trip so There is a lot of nervousness there he was going to be gone and on the road and not quite as accessible as an NHL player because most of the Times they bust so the fact that that all changed. I think sort of changed their perspective. You can imagine guises in a when you're waiting for your first child. The thoughts of for Haley. Her Mom For Dylan his mom being able to come in and maybe be a part of it than the fact that they ended up just being in isolation on their own on some ways was difficult for them but another I just kept saying Dylan. This is beautiful. It's it's about you too and about you to sharing this moment together and overall you know wet so well and They're just thrilled now. And it's better than sitting in a in an apartment and looking at a five day old all day. You know. There's so much fun. They change every day. So it's a pretty exciting time for both of them You're fifty three years old. You look terrific. I'm almost fifty. I looked like a bag of chips. Like what's it like I? I'm curious I have an eight year old so I I'm not anywhere. Close to becoming a grandparent. But you know I remember my father telling me how excited he was to be a grandfather. But it's weird hearing grandfather harvey in front of Your Name Your Grandfather Craig now. How does that feel? I know while you know what feel very proud. And the year your firstborn was Dylan. The back in nineteen ninety-three into to have him have the first child and be in a position where it hopefully sooner rather than later get to share in the joy of that is amazing and as you know. Elliott in a. We have a six year old as well so sammy is now an aunt which I think is probably more strange for her of is for me. She she kept saying. I'm not sure I WANNA be this ad thing. Dad I'm not sure I can handle that but I'm also having Samantha. This last six years has kept me feeling young and feeling energized and you don't take for granted I think going through it again. You know with another opportunity to have a little one around as giving you the given me anyways the sense of you know. How much different is this time? I'm not in my late Twenties early thirties. I was in my late. Forties early fifties in dealing with the second time around. I think I have a greater appreciation for it. And I can't wait for the opportunity to have a grandchild I mean I even said the Dylan Haley. Jamie and I were looking at the pictures three days later goal. My Gosh like she's changed so much though We have no idea when they get a chance to actually see her but It'll be amazing. How much she would have changed. I just couldn't be happier. It's a This has all been such a change in I. I looked at the timing Jeff Elliot and I thought we have our last game April Force in Toronto and then have a few days before in planning pre planning. I thought I gonNA leave that Sunday. Open to see if maybe even fly into Cleveland and if she is over has arrived get there while it worked perfectly but as we know. That's all that's all out the window. Okay similar me ask you the Canadian question then. Left shot or shot. What is she? She's got to be? A righty I hope. But Dylan. Dylan's a lefty. He's a lefty both in hockey and golf And so you know. He's a unique one in that regard. So maybe those genes will wear off Riley are other sons righty Kennedy or daughters. Righty Samantha's already as well. So I take the writings have a chance. Maybe to win out. You know what I thought you're GONNA ask when she's able to play for. The Olympic Team Michigan to play for the US. All that's true. Yes got an American good one Canadian Dad and born in the USA so that that that will be an interesting intriguing time so We got lots of time to sink in. We'll have to see where it leads to for sure will simmer. Just what's yeah? What's keeping you busy? Yeah while as we sit and talk. Now we have our scheduled I'm officially now a grade one teacher and he's having an. I will start our grade one class in we usually go for about an hour and then have a little lunch break in an hour or another half hour forty five minutes and then go outside for quote unquote recess. We've just tried as best we can to. You know. Make some routine found early on. You know this all happened for us. I'm not sure what your schooling was in In Ontario but our spring break was the twenty third week and so we had the week before when we didn't Go everything was closed off and then we had spring break. So we've Kinda take a little departure from getting back into the school and just found that you know the kids love some free time but they also are really struggling a bit without having that routine and you take for granted. You know Jesse's in grade seven he's twelve and a half years old and just missing the fact of going to school every day in interacting and working and having some real regiment to your day I think everybody from whom I've talked to in the other families you know you. Maybe took that for granted just how important that was for the kids routine in their mental health. So we've tried in the last seven to ten days to get on more of a schedule and just get them into the mindset of you know. Even at times with Samantha Right. Now she's GonNa Dad. Can I sit on your lap? And did I go hon? Were in school right now. Known you we got another fourteen hours where you can be cuddling sitting on me and watching something but again just trying to get them back to some normalcy. So it's been challenging. I must say I have an incredible amount of respect My our daughter. Kennedy is a teacher and she got a placement literally in the last two weeks before the Everything was canceled but they've kept her on and she's doing online teaching and I'm really impressed. With how the schools have tried to handle it and tried to bring some normalcy. And try to help families you know. We're we're very fortunate that we have lots of space. We have lots of technology to do things with the kids. The thing I'm concerned how many families who don't have that in are struggling to keep the kids busy. A small enclosed area without the kind of you know means having communication. I think that to me is probably the biggest fear and we don't take that for granted all here the the situation where you know. I think Craig that so well said because we're lucky to like our school it gives given Max Three online classes a day which makes a huge difference. And it's the same rules for us like you have to prepare from nine. Am to three PM. You're in school the whole day and your task Nascar then. We're not giving her that log. Spring he gets break like no video games no IPAD during that time and now. The weather's gotten a bit better so we can go outside and we can play catch and we played some cornhole this morning. But generally I don't know about you but I'm correct like from nine to three. We try to act like we're in school as much as possible and thank goodness. They provided some online courses for it. You know you know I live in Edmonton. Gosh the last two days. We've had snowfalls. I'm looking I'm looking out my front. I've got abode three and a half feet of snow on our front yard. That's still got to go and huge mound. So that's been a challenge as well. I think the the weather you know my Younger Son Riley who's finishing up at asu online in a Arizona State. I'm looking at him and he's facetime in me and it's like thirty degrees and sitting outside while at least you can go in the backyard and enjoy the weather. That's been a challenge year West because the weather has been you know not really turn and I think what that does at least now. Our property in our backyard becomes open. I don't know if you saw earlier. We posted Jesse and Sammy had little Ski Hill. Going down the back side so they made the best of our environment. And I think that's what's important but you know the thing guys that really concerns me the most and you know not to be too somber and serious note but Jamie and I have talked so much of you know not under estimating how difficult is there are so many families that you know. My worry is domestic violence and kids who have been in tough situations. Now who are stock can families who are stress than mother and father who are struggling to make ends meet and if we can do anything around our society is to try to protect those in. This is going to be for me guys. The biggest challenge going forward is to protect some of those who can't be protected themselves and I talked with the business friend. Edmonton is talking with the chief of police in no sadly one of their biggest things need not one of the biggest thing they're dealing with now is domestic incidents and that's one of the things that it's just flooding into their network. And so you know that concerns me alive. I think we have to be aware that..

"No wool. Explain the story around a so. Okay well it looks like in this story all right sure. There's a there's a. There's a few in there but it's a great pitcher great product I think. Part of being a General Manager you got to sell a little bit when it comes time to try to get a deal down here to negotiate a contract so we've all got a little bit of salesman when you become a manager in the league you got a little bit of salesman and you I love that answer and can Thank you so much for your time before we let you go one question because you mentioned Sergei Federov A couple of moments ago. He's come up a couple of different times in the interview And I asked you about writing a book before one thing that I would love to know. If Ken Hall on ever wrote a book I was told that a nineteen eighty-nine after Detroit took Sergei Federov fourth-round. I think it was either in the fifth where you guys took Akasha believe or in the fifth. We took Dallas Drake. There was some discussion at the table about taking Pavel burry. How close were Detroit to getting both Federer off and Beret at the draft We were going to take ray on her. Fifth picks a meal Smith. The chief scout walked up to the desk central scowling desk and asked if it was a different time we know all that now and they had told come back to the table and said if we take pavel burry. It's going to be an ineligible pick. We took somebody else and then Christopher Rostrum who was eropean. Scott spent the next thirty five minutes convincing. Jim Devil Anna when Neil Smith to take burry because he had to play I think seven or nine games in the Russian men's leaked to be eligible for any rounds and if he played last he was only in the three first three rounds. We were GONNA take on pick six and two picks before we picked Vancouver. Took them improved? What Christa Rostrum was convincing us. That we could so it would have been something else Federov and Berry but we did take. Constantine of in the eleventh round. Certainly that eighty nine draft for the red wings getting Constantina Drums Federer of all in the same draft he added added to Steve. Eisman really changed the fortunes and the history of hockey in Detroit Sir. Twenty years so would have been nice to have the two of them together but feel fortunate with all the ones. That's all the players we did. Get three in your book can. Yeah that'd be very started scouting and eighty five eighty six so I went to the world junior championships in Alaska that year and they had a line of burry. Fedor oven mogilny and They were dancing. They won the gold medal. At the first time I'd ever seen all those players play and the great job by Neil Smith and KRISTA rostrum those the two people responsible for Nicholas Being drafted in the third round by the by the Detroit Red Wings so Meal Smith did a fabulous job as the chief scout the Detroit redwings and then obviously went onto a wonderful career with the New York Rangers. So that story definitely's GonNa go on the book. It was a great day for the REDWING FRANCHISE. I had a bit part Neil Smith Than Jim. Devlin KRISTA rostrum had the lead parts. Great Stories Listen. You've parked a Lotta time for us today. Thank you so much. This has been a delight. Thanks so much. Thanks guys all right Elliot. Everybody wants to know because it is a great one. What's the vacuum cleaner story? So Ken Holland's last year is a pro was eighty four eighty five. He played four. Nhl Games he was drafted by the police in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy five. Who did he play for the American Hockey League Adirondack First Broome county dusters the broome county dusters in the broome dusters and then he went to Hartford's organization where he played one game. And then you went to Detroit where he played his last three and his last season was eighty forty five. He was a member of the Adirondack Red Wings and it wasn't going anywhere for him and he was deciding the next phase of his life and at that time also he's coming up on being thirty years old so his mother wanted him to be a vacuum cleaner salesman. She sent him an and she also promised him to be her first sale. He's thinking about it and basically what happened was the red wings. Made them the offer to become a western Canada scout and that's where his career as executive began. But that's how close he was to becoming a vacuum salesman. And that's why I asked the question. I think he was also pitched. At a number of people from his family would buy vacuums. Like five or six people are already lined up to buy vacuums. We had a base to start working from that. This they really wanted Ken to sell vacuums. And get out of this crazy Hockey lifestyle. Great story you know. It was on that broome county team by the way and that was a slugging. Lee. Paul Stewart was Was was on that team. I remember talking to We there's some which you get on. The podcast has H on pause right now for great stories because he was the first one to tell me about Ken. as a goaltender in the In the minors through it'd be a great guest. Thanks Ken Holland for stopping by the podcast today and thanks to the Edmonton oilers. For making him available we turn our attention now to one of our own Eliot Friedman. I'll tell you what Craig Simpson and Jim Houston mentioned. Jim Going back to that. Eighty four game on Global Sports Sault greyhounds in Oshawa generals Jim Houston and Craig. Simpson have been mainstays on hockey night in Canada. For a number of years The are the Cadillac Broadcast Cruz. Born I think Craig Simpson. I think of someone that took so much physical punishment in the NHL just to stay just to stay in the game. And I think of someone who probably spent far too long in physical pain then. He should've considering how skilled hockey player. He was our colleague. Craig Simpson when I say that name. What comes the Elliott? Friedman's mind? We did a piece on preparing for the play offs years ago and we talked to the equipment guys in Edmonton who obviously were very well known. Berry Stafford being one of them and he talked about all of the extra padding that he had to put underneath of Craig's Simpson's Jersey because they knew the abuse that he was to take in front of the net and that was one of the things he really talked about was how much extra work he had to do with Simpson stuff so he would be able to withstand the punishment. So when I think of Craig I think of that conversation Craig. Simpson has a lot of different titles and has had a lot of different titles In his time player broadcaster father. But he's added another title. Let's find out what that is. Here's Craig Simpson.

"Coach tip it Broke them up and had Leeann centering one line connor centering other lines. So you got to superstars and you and you can do so many things with them that I feel so fortunate to be manager of a team that has to play twenty three and twenty four years old just turned twenty three and twenty four late slate last year and early this year so the best years are still ahead of them and Both great great players. I wouldn't WanNa have a vote but I feel very very fortunate to be able to manage a team that both are on the team. Can I want to ask about you? Blue Line and you talked about players like you know Evan. Bouchard in Phila- Broberg a couple of seconds ago and those players that are on the horizon two players on your Blue Line this season. I think really moved that Blue Line along. Maybe considerate found money. Maybe they're right on track. I'm not sure where you had them in your mind. But in your words what did Ethan Bear and Caleb Jones do this back in the season well Jeff great question when I took over here on? May the six and met with the people here. They talked about Ethan Bear Caleb Jones William Legacies and the way Bouchard had played so I think we had seven players defense on one way contracts. I wanted to create an opportunity so and also we needed some caps basically by sequeira and he went from five five. Kept number two to five on a BIOS. We opened up three million dollars of cap space which we went out and signed some three four. Reads it around a million bucks and then we went to training camp and early on Ethan Bear. Sorta grabbed out spot and found some chemistry found real good chemistry with Darnell nurse and he's been top four minutes all year long in some. He's been in our top two in terms of minutes played so And then when the cleft got injured in February or whatever. We're losing the guy that was playing the most minutes on our team. You're never really sure. Caleb Jones stepped in there and played in our top four and played great. So I think you've nailed it. You know great job by the order scouts from the past if you think about think. I'm not sure what you're around four five and six. They took their Jones and Marino. Unfortunately we couldn't sign Marina. We traded him to Pittsburgh. But you got three. Nhl Defense but in round four five and six of great job by the by the order scouts in a pass drafting in order to be competitive a salary cap world. You gotTa have a push of young kids for a variety reasons but obviously you need some players on the team that can really contribute either. They're on entry level contracts with Iran. Low second contracts and. That's what certainly what what Ethan Beer ditz rest and also also Caleb Jones so both. They're young mobile PUCK MOVING DEFENSEMAN AUTHOR. Competitive Kayla. Jones is really. He played left defense or right defense. We played them quite a bit on defense at times. When you got a guy that can play left and right now. You can carry seven cents. But if you've got a defense when you're comfortable playing right or left. Carrie meek defense just because if you lose a righty. He can slight overweight. If you lose a left he can slide over on the left. So certainly Caleb gives us some versatility in some depth the not only for this year but heading into next year but very good surprises for the Edmonton oilers. Pleasant surprises for me. It's I'm just curious about your relationship with mcdavid. You know you start and we find out he's got this significant injury which he battles very impressively from to get back but one thing I've heard is that you've really worked hard on creating a relationship with him through his agent Jeff Jackson because you know you recognize his importance and you recognize the two of. You are going to have to do this together. How do you go about that? How does your relationship work? First off? Coach Tippett talks to Connor. Everyday you know and I know he talks to. Leeann one of the things that I've been in the world that we live in today the communication between the coach and the player and you're top players so important and it's one of Dave Tippett strengths as a coach Mike. Managing Salafi really is. I want the players to understand the coaches their direct. He's they're bossy up the ice time he makes the line combinations. Since I'm in charge of the twenty three man rosters as. Who's on the team? I work with the coach and talk about it but I think it's important that the players understand that. The coaches got the authority to play people. Lots or not play people as much so my relationship with connor is. I'm not talking to him on an everyday basis. I talked to him over. The course of the year St Nicholas terms that are bird with the three captains that I had in Detroit three or four times a year. I'd have a called a business. Meteoric call him in and we talk about leading up to July for leading up to the draft. Get The captain's opinion abode or the end of the season when our season was over shortly thereafter spent two or three hours one day getting the captain's perspective as to what he thinks are team heading into the offseason as you during the season. If you're floundering at some point time maybe get a get a feeling. Certainly two or three weeks before the trade deadline to meet with the captain to get his opinion. I have talked a lot to Jeff Jackson not as much to connor but enough to connor and know what he's thinking I know what But his thoughts are about the team and you know talk a little bit but at the end of the day the person that has done a great job of building up a really everyday relationship with connor is Dave Tip Bob. Gainey wants An interview talked-about handling different players and he said You'RE GONNA be a pretty dismal team if you don't have any difficult players to handle because good players are not easy to handle in your experience now with Edmonson and of course previous with Detroit. Is that an accurate statement. I ANYTHING BOB GAINEY SAYS I agree with the guy's been a managers meant he's in his vision and and I mean he was talking about things in the game fifteen years ago that we're doing today at the managers level soul dealing with top players. You know first off. It's to coach. You get back to the coaches is there every day in the coaches got A. There's a fine line between pushing and pulling back and trying to figure out a way to get the most out of each individual player and then the team. I think most if not all the best players that I've dealt with either in in Edmonton in Detroit. They WANNA win. They're motivated to win. They push in. What makes them great number one? Obviously their skillset. They've got a great skill set. But what separates them to go to? The upper tier is the mental toughness. The determination the desire to be better than everybody else and so. You got a harness that the coach the manager have to make sure that it's harnessed. I kind of think back to the relationship between Steve Eisenman and Scotty Bowman and house. Steve wanted to win. Scotty wanted the team to play a certain way. When Steve was all in everybody else was all in so. I just think that the great young players coming through peewee and through Banham and through midget and through whether it's college or Europe or major junior hockey they've been superstars and they continue to be superstars. Now they're gonNA come in. They might play a little bit less ice time where you want them to make adjustments to their game and that's where you gotta communicate and work that player but the great players. They're great for reason. And certainly you got to be very respectful of their skill. Set of their determination of what they want to accomplish. Because the bottom line is they want the same thing that we do they wanNA THEY WANNA win. We got us. Make sure that everybody is on the same page. Because ultimately it is a team and We have to win as a team. Everybody's got a different role. Bigger roles lesser roles. It needs to be a team can win you. I met with the oilers as a group at the beginning of training camp this year. Some people have told me you gave a really good talk about how Detroit was once a down team and how they built themselves into a champion and a number of people who are in that room and they told me I could never say who they were said. It was a really inspiring excellent speech that explained to everybody how it was going to happen and how important everybody was. Can you give us an idea of what you told them? When I knew that was near the end in Detroit for me they know Steve is minute. Step down and I talked to Chris. I I just know it's time you. I just knew it was time. I had an unbelievable run and I wasn't sure where I was going with my career. The Owners in Detroit Mississippi Chris me an incredible offer to stay there as senior vice president and I talked to Steve. Steve wanted me to stay and I had to decide. If that's certainly a possibility because I'd been with the Red Wings for thirty six years and then when this opportunity came and I met with Bob. Nicholson talked about going to going to Edmonton. You know everybody's in the game. I think I thas speech theory. We're all in the game. We want to win the Stanley Cup or compete for the Stanley Cup. And you WANNA BELIEVE. You've got a chance if you play your very best. That is good enough to be better than everybody else. In the last three years in Detroit we had missed the playoffs and we have twenty five years making the playoffs and when you make the playoffs you got a chance and then and I just talked about the building of of the redwings late eighties. Early nineties how we built into a team. And you know the confidence that I just. You know for me personally. I I haven't been you know talked about how exciting and dino they know from two years ago when they think the beat San Jose in the first round and lost Anaheim. How exciting the playoffs are you want to be in that tournament every year? How every city you know you watch the Stanley Cup playoffs in the final four in the finals and you see people outside the building in the people on the streets and there and it's overflowing in the energy of the city and I remember when Edmonton knocked us out no five zero six one hundred twenty five one hundred twenty six points out game six. Thank you remember game six. We were up one nothing after two periods and then they scored to make it one one and then there was just an onslaught of the motion from the fans pouring out and and the orders cranked it up and then they knocked Stanley Cup. Playoff.
"pavel" Discussed on 31 Thoughts: The Podcast
"Are you Dana White? You saw that right. Yes he's coming up with. Us coming up with with more the the updated reality version of mortal Kombat who would be the NHL's subzero. Ooh great question. That's a great question for twitter. That's a good point. Jeff we can let the twitter's answer who the NHL version of sub zero is the wrestlemainia ratings. Were apparently really good. I haven't seen them. I was told that no surprise. I watched it. I go up and down resting but I watched it ache because there's not much else to watch and be because I wanted to see what they would do you know. How can you make something that has your atmosphere taken away entertaining and exciting and I think those guys deserve a lot of credit? I thought they did the best that they absolutely could. But like I look at the USC thing and I look at the wwe ratings. As I've been told they are when we're hearing that. Mlb WANTS TO START UP AND MAY IN PHOENIX. Which I think is a crazy plan. I don't think they're going to be able to do that at all. But I understand why everybody's saying we have to be ready when we're allowed to do it because people are going to be starving for something to watch and the moment you're told you're allowed to do it you're GonNa have to flick your switch like that you have the captive audience and you have. C. is going forward with UFC. Two forty nine Tony Ferguson. And just engage he. The car looks really good. I'll just be blunt. Looks like a really good card. On on April the eighteenth era going forward with it. We saw Dana White deer point musing about fighter island Mortal Kombat Island. Whatever you WANNA call it and flying fighters in putting on fights Every week because you know that you will have a captive audience right now. The you have sports fans right now. That are thirsty for anything right now. Just give us something new baseball fans football fans basketball FANS HOCKEY FANS NASCAR. Whatever gives us something and we will go. You will have everybody's attention so I'm not surprised. Wrestlemanias numbers are good. I won't be surprised if you have see to. Forty nine with Ferguson engage. He does a tremendous number for. Ufc people are starved for something. Which is why. This should not be surprised if anybody if you're then just for the purposes of this podcast carried Batman Commissioner of the NHL. Of course you're marveling for different scenarios. What happens if we can come back on the first of June? What happens if it's the first of July the first of August the first of September I would imagine there's a number of different models because to your point when the health authorities say that it's safe to go back to work to go back to play to resume your league. You know when when the merit amityville says it's okay to go back into the water. They WANNA be ready and they want to be able to maximize right away because people are coming out this thing thirsty. I think that's all true. I think that's all true now. One thing I just wanted to mention so the other night we talked about how North Dakota's on the list of places they could potentially play this and one of the issues there is going to be hotels. There simply is not the infrastructure hotel wise to do it so that is the big strike against it but they're arena is spectacular. If you've ever been there or you know it it's beautiful and dabbled lords marble floors Elliott. It's makes total sense. It could house several teams but wouldn't all be North Dakota. Maybe it was my fault for not writing it clear enough. I did put in more than one site would need to be done but people seem to read it as it's all going to be there. It wouldn't all be there. There would be multiple sites. I don't know four or six or eight or whatever but there would be multiple sites that way that it would determine the runoff to the Stanley Cup final. If we could have it but this is completely out of everybody's hands we'RE NOT GONNA LIKE JEFF. Like I've said this we're not gonNA wait 'til May or June what we're capable of doing. I duNNo. I remain skeptical to the point about I. I would be concerned about next season. Jeff this is an optimistic podcast. I'm getting two down. I'm getting too cynical now. I don't want Downer Jeff. Here this is an optimistic podcast. Now look people out. There are listeners out there. We know it's tough and I don't want to make light of that in any way shape or form but I just believe because the way I live my life is you have to believe that at some point the best is going to happen. That's the way I have to live and I realize it's not in the short term like I think Major League Baseball saying May is not realistic. But I think we have to understand that we don't know anything until the end of May beginning of June and then we'll see and Jeff. You might turn out to be right doctor. Negative may turn out to be right but until I know okay. I'm hoping for the best. Okay you know what you know. What's positive through all of this because we've all had a lot of time now on our hands go investigate vintage games to watch rewind events godown. U2 wormholes that you can't win the hockey season his odd because there are always games on every single night and and we watched them and you watch them as well gentle listener Nord.

They've hit by saturation point. You're still working out though. Are you yeah working out riding your bike? You're reading. What am I missing here? That's good yeah no no no. I know it is good but I've also been doing a like a lot of work. I'm working on a couple of projects of the podcast so but I'm just saying that like I'm getting tired of the television. I don't know of anybody else is getting this right now but I'm getting tired of the TV I don't watch until the evening right now because we have a a nightly routine now with the kids After three rolled goes down I'll make a little bit of supper for me and my wife and we will sit down with our two boys ten and eight and you let me know whether this is good. Parenting or knots K so. I've never seen the walking dead series ever and our kids are fascinated by zombies. So last week we started episode one season one of the walking dead and we'll watch usually two sometimes three episodes before the kids go to bed. I thought there would be nightmares. I thought there would be. I can't sleep dad but there hasn't been quite the opposite has happened will my wife and I beyond the cover of next month's edition of today's parent magazine Elliott. You see I have to tell you that I think in this day and age. There's no such thing as bad parenting. There's no such thing as bad parenting are there is. There is bad parenting. I think now all the kids are home. Everybody you know. What if if walking dead gets you through and I got no problem with that would if I may or may not have told the kids at the beginning of episode one that were showing you this because we want you to know where all this heading with that make me a bad parent Deli. That might scare them a little bit the Alta. I played cornhole with Max Today. What is that Cornell's when you throw the beanbags into the ground okay? So he was getting mad because I kept on making him shoot from farther because I want him to improve his aim like he can hit from close.

This was bad parenting and I wasn't even getting matter of like you know. Hey as long as you try and give it a good effort you'll figure it out eventually. I think that might be.

The European Drinker
"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eighty eight one day at a time in this episode the third story in the personal story section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine. It's entitled the European Drinker. The story was also published in the second and third editions of the Big Book but does not appear in the fourth edition and now the European Drinker Preface. Beer and wine were not the answer. I was born in Europe in house to be exact shortly after it had become German and practically grew up with good Rhine wine of song and story. My parents had some vague ideas of making a priest out of me and for some years I attended the Francis in school at Basel Switzerland just across the border about six miles from my home but although I was a good Catholic. The monastic life had little appeal for me very early. I became apprentice to harness. Making an acquired considerable knowledge of upholstering. My daily consumption of wine was about a quart but that was common where I lived. Everybody drank wine and it is true that there was no great amount of drunkenness. But I can remember in my teens that there were a few characters who caused the village heads to nod pityingly and sometimes an anger as they pause to say that sought on Ray or said Pavel. Israel's who drank too much they were undoubtedly. The alcoholics of our village military service was compulsory. And I did my stretch with the class of my age goose-stepping German barracks and taking part in the boxer rebellion in China. My first time at any great distance from home informed parts many a soldier who has been abstemious at home learns to use new and potent drinks so I indulge with my comrades and everything the Faris had to offer I cannot say however that I acquired any craving for hard liquor as a result when I got back to Germany. I settled down to finish my apprenticeship. Drinking the wine of the country as usual many friends of my family had emigrated to America so at Twenty Four. I decided that the United States offered me the opportunity. I was never likely to find in my native land. I came directly to a growing industrial city in the Middle West where I have lived practically ever since I was warmly welcomed by friends of my youth who had preceded me for weeks. After my arrival I was faded and entertained in the already large colony Alsatians in the city among the Germans in their saloons and clubs. I early decided that the wine of America was very inferior stuff and took up beer instead. I soon found work at my trade in harness making. It was still an age of horses but I discovered that harness and saddle making in America was different than anything I had known. Every man in the shop was a specialist and instead of having a variety of jobs to do every day I was compelled to sit all day long at a bench. Doing the same thing and Leslie. I found it very monotonous and wanting a change I found it when I got work as an upholsterer. In a large furniture store fond of singing I joined German singing society which had good club headquarters. There I sat in the evenings enjoying with my friends. Our memories of the old country singing the old songs. We all knew playing simple card games for drinks and consuming great quantities of beer. At that time I could go into any saloon. Have One or two beers walk out and forget about it. I had no desire whatever to sit down at a table and stale whole morning or afternoon drinking certainly at that time. I was one of those who can take it or leave it alone. There had never been any drunkards in my family. I came of good stock of men and women who drank wine all lives as a beverage and while the occasionally got drunk at special celebrations. They were up in about their business the next day prohibition came having regard for the law of the land. I resigned myself to the will of the national legislators and quit drinking altogether not because I had founded harmful. But because I couldn't get what I was accustomed to drink. You can all remember that in the first few months after the change. A great many men who had formerly been used to a few beers every day or an occasional drink of. Whiskey simply quit all alcoholic drinks for the great majority of US however that condition. Didn't last we saw very early. That prohibition wasn't going to work it wasn't very long before home. Brewing was an institution and men began to search fervor shortly for all the recipe books on wine-making but I hardly tasted anything for two years and started in business for myself founding a mattress factory. Which is today an important industrial enterprise in our city. I was doing very well with that. And General upholstering work and there was every indication that I would be financially independent by the time I reached Middle Age. By this time I was married and was paying for a home like most immigrants. I wanted to be somebody and have something and I was very happy and contented as felt success crown my efforts. I miss the old social times of course but had no definite craving even for beer. Successful home brewers among my friends began to invite me to their homes. I decided that if these could make it I would try it myself and so I did. It wasn't very long until I had developed a pretty good brew with uniformity and plenty of authority. I knew the stuff I was making was a lot stronger than I had been used to. But never suspected that steady drinking of it might develop a taste for something even stronger. It wasn't long before the bootlegger wasn't established institution this as in other towns. I was doing well and business and in going around town. I was frequently invited to have a drink in speakeasy. I condone my domestic brewing and the bootleggers and their business. More and more. I form the habit of doing some of my business in the speakeasy and after a time did not need that as an excuse. The speaks usually sold Whiskey. Beer was too bulky and it couldn't be kept in a jug under the counter ready to be dumped when John Law would come around. I was now forming an entirely new drinking technique before long I had a definite taste for hard liquor new nausea and headaches. I had never known before but as in the old days I suffered them out gradually however I suffered so much that I simply had to have the morning after drink. I became what is called a periodical drinker. I was eased out of the business. I had founded and was reduced to doing general upholstery in a small shop. At the back of my house my wife upgraded me often and plenty when she saw that my periodical were gradually losing me. What business I could get. I began to bring bottles in. I had them hidden away in the House and all over my shop and careful concealment. I had all the usual experiences of the alcoholic for I was certainly one by this time sometimes after sobering up after about of several weeks. I would righteously resolved to quit with a great deal of I would throw out full pines. Pour them out and smash the bottles firmly resolved never to take another drink of the stuff. I was going to straighten up in four or five days. I would be hunting all over the place at home and in my workshop for the bottles I had destroyed cursing myself for being damned fool. My periodicals became more frequent until I reached the point where I wanted to devote all my time to drinking working as little as possible and then only when the necessity of my family demanded as soon as I had satisfied. That what I earned as an upholsterer went for liquor I would promise to have jobs done and never do them. My customers lost confidence in me to the point where I retained what business I had only because I was a well trained reputedly fine craftsman best in the business when he's sober. My customers would say and I still had a following who had given me work though. They deplored my habits because they knew the job would be well done when they eventually got it. I had always been a good Catholic possibly not so devoted as I should have been but fairly regular in my attendance at services I had never doubted the existence of the supreme being but now I began to absent myself from the church where I had formerly been a member of the choir. Unfortunately I had no desire to consult my priest about my drinking. In fact I was scared to talk to him about it for. I feared the kind of talk. He would give me unlike many other. Catholics who frequently take pledges for definite periods a year two years or for good. I never had any desire to take a pledge before the priest
Time for justice for Roma, senior expert urges on Holocaust Remembrance Day
"An estimated half a million people from the Roma minority perished in Europe during the Holocaust but that persecution under Nazi rule is still widely ignored today according to an expert on the issue Dan Pavel doggy senior adviser on Roma and Sinti issues for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe or. SEC says the Roma people should finally receive seve the justice. They deserve Mr Doggy attended a United Nations Holocaust memorial events at U N headquarters in New York where he spoke about the importance importance of education to help fight racism and discrimination against vulnerable minorities you and uses an Komo's started by asking him about the fate of the Roma under the Nazi regime. It was a similar fate as of the Jewish people because besides the Jewish People Roma were also specifically targeted for extermination on racial grounds. There were considered subhumans onto mention impure a danger for the block. pull off the Air Ian Muster race. How does this reflect in the Rome incentive in their lives today in our society would go back a little bit before the Holocaust Rama arrived on the European continent approximately one thousand years ago and they were met with reluctance fear and then consumed they were prosecuted There's a history of slavery in many many countries. I'm from Romania. Rama were slaves For five hundred years there and only liberated like one hundred seventy years ago And liberated mance they were set free to go without possessing any anything UNEDUCATED TO IN POOR health unskilled skittled for professional labor and so on So there is a history of exclusion persecution and oppression and it also so culminated with the deportation of Roma and And they're killing During the Holocaust still a an issue with a proper recognition of the Roma Holocaust It's often called the forgotten Holocaust because it's not widely known and both states and to historians and scholars. They were not very open to document. The situation of Roma acknowledged the suffering of Roma and ended experience as being an integral parts of the Holocaust even nowadays. The Holocaust definition focuses primarily on juice and then an an ad group is mentioned secondly within the Roma community This hurts because we always believed that the what happened into Roma what happened to us is an integral part of the Holocaust. And I've mentioned that today that it's time for justice format to be done and maybe that's it's a Holocaust definition to be corrected and amended to properly reflect the Roma as being part of the Holocaust. What do you think is the reason why this was never properly knowledge lack of the communication? Of course there's a lack of information But I would. I would rather say this is more about the power play. Roma were always week On on the fringes of society uneducated without their own organizations self represent themselves politically and the and so on so It was easy for a group that is traditionally considered marginal to be just ignored but decades after decades more more of the Roma survivors. Sti Slowly opened up and spoke about their experience during the Second World War and then a number of Romo activists and advocates have advocated a for a proper recognition and it took quite some time at least for the Roma genocide recognized But but this recognition is not a uniform When we speak of Intergovernmental Organizations OAC UN Council of Europe and so on we worked with different terminology analogies and we were different commitments? For instance within the see in the action plan on improving the situation of Romance indie adopted in two thousand and three you by fifty seven participating states. There is a One chapter focusing on education and there is one provision within that says that participating states states should promote and develop teaching educational materials about the experience of Roma. Aw during the Holocaust so even there there is no proper nation. So it's like the Holocaust and then some of the things happen in parallel and that's also the case of in Council of Europe The Roma genocide is recognized Then the European Parliament events has adopted recently resolution that recognizes second of August as the European Roma Holocaust Remembrance Day so the terminology of Roma Holocaust is partially used by by some of the bodies But we strive for proper and recognition. And it's about time seventy five years after the ending of the Second World War. Do you feel that your presence here. Today is part of that steps that we should take a the. I would like to believe so and I made it very clear. perhaps it It goes beyond the formal boundaries But I'm also Romo myself and would like to believe that I can express myself or what I think is just an important for the Roma people. Can you talk on the kinds of discrimination. These groups face nowadays. Especially in the way that is affecting specially women and girls so there are different layers of exclusion and also discrimination even within the Roma community but the biggest and the most harmful it comes from outside and that's historical already. There are all sorts of discriminations in every walk of life. possible Whatever you you have a challenge or a bad situation situation If if YOU'RE TO MAKE SCALE RAMA tend to or overwhelmingly always at the very very bottom uh-huh and that's an indication of the level of racist and prejudice and that can can be demonstrated by the kind of attitudes of the society towards Roma that is not different whether we speak of countries from the Post Communist bloc which are still struggle with democracy and economy and so on versus countries in very well advanced democracies in the Western Europe. Romar Romar treated very often in a very similar manner and treatment is in no way good if one is curious and and do a little a bit of a check may be worth of a week of media research or empirical research if you want so the traditional traditional media as well as the social media it will be very easy to find News and information about Roma are targeted with the hatred and hate speech From top politicians from presidents of the country to Prime Minister to foreign foreign ministers they go out and say all stupid and racist things about Roma and very often with impunity. And and the kind of impunity that exists already in Europe it only emboldens the far right and extremist groups who see a top politician attention being outright racist without consequences. Why should why should they be? Shy so they're encouraged to go out and express their intolerance and extremists attitude towards Rama. And that takes very often. The form of racially motivated violence Samsung incidents. Every year we document situations of tax pogroms collective punishments Popular Justice done by people. A who who think it's absolutely okay to take justice and law in their hands and and harm can Education change and all of these behaviors and the conventional education is not an indicator for that because Schools throughout Europe not reformed and educational process and curriculum are not reformed enough to to educate the younger generations beyond a the substance of the courses but educate them about the society and about the respect for diversity. So maybe some countries are more advanced and you you may see a different different treatments With regard to other groups and minorities the religious minorities but the problem is that when it's about trauma. The treatment is unfortunately very similar throughout Europe. And it's one of rejection. We are here for one thousand in Europe and people still call outs. Forum ought to go back to India so they were never considered organically as being part of the countries where they were born and living for centuries and that's a huge problem or anything else that you think it should be covered in this interview. Setting the proper tone is essential and I made a call. Oh and I urged states and and politicians to be responsible. And they're doing because the way they set the roads that's how the policies will be implemented or or the kind of Pol policies that many have fought for decades and now they are in place and there are in principle sound policies. Never stand a chance for proper implementation because that requires political. Will that requires putting money where your mouth is in with regard to Roma in the past fifteen years or so maybe. Thirty countries have developed. Attend adopted Roma inclusion strategies and many Were already renewed twice or even three times but if you would like to to draw the line and see okay. These are in principle good strategies if most of the measures and provisions contained by strategies these would be implemented by now who we will speak a much better situation. The real problem is that it's all talk and it's very little that it's done.

Explainer 169: What is going on in Moldova?
"Moldova's forays into the headlines are rare explainer seeking to explain Moldova should probably therefore start with the basics. It's just next to the top, right hand corner of Romania alongside the border with Ukraine population, three million and change about the same size as Belgium independent since the collapse of the Soviet Union in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. If you have read or heard much about Moldova before, now it has probably been about the part of Moldova that wishes it wasn't part of Moldova. This is the strange geopolitical normally of the Preakness strove, Ian Maldivian Republic, better known as Transnistria a sliver of land squeezed between the Dniester river and Ukraine, which operates as a sort of Soviet Russia theme park. Transnistria still erect statues of Lenin flies. The hammer and sickle on its flag and has become a staple destination for chortling travel. Writings. Also in the least visited country in Europe. The fact is that more people visit my local Tesco every day, the visit Moldova every year, but it is in Moldova proper, where curious things are refute this week to the extent that as we go to where it's not entirely clear who if anyone is roaming the country. A Russia, this question has been imported for one society for years. And these elections are out exception through main players through Bharti's that will likely for the parliament, socialist party that has pro Russian Democratic Party that is rather for your being Italy formed position.

It was a close run thing, the pro Russian socialist party finished first, but the pro e u Democratic Party and a alliance finished a close second and third respectively. Nobody had a parliamentary majority. Confusing matters further, where plausible allegations of vote-buying ballot stuffing and other shenanigans largely on the part of the socialists. Disdain to happen, and then people will regain their trust in the country, and then we'll start building democracy will strengthen the state's accuses which would what for citizens and not for some could be. After some months of inconclusive wrangling, this past weekend, the pro Russian socialists and the pro e u a alliance agreed to form an unlikely governing coalition to be led by the alliance's, Maya Sandhu previously, Moldova's minister for education, who would become prime minister Moldova's eighth prime minister this decade, the country is no stranger to political crisis.

Hello. I'm Caroline Wyatt. And welcome back to the well this week coming up. We look political turmoil in Venezuela Zimbabwe, France, but I the political turmoil here in Britain where Prime Minister Theresa may suffered the greatest parliamentary defeat in modern history. When her Brexit deal was rejected by two hundred thirty votes. It indicated a UK parliament as well as people split not along party lines, but into many different camps all in vehement disagreement of whether the UK should stay in the European Union leave on Mrs Maes terms. Plus, you a better deal. If there is one crush out with no deal at all or have a second referendum. This is at least one of out of confidence the following day. But given the scale of her earlier defeat that seemed a hollow victory in the end, many Brits resolved simply the half a Cup of tea in the hope that in the words of that great dickens character mister Mukuba something with. Turn up. But what could that be? And how serious is the deadlock, and what might unlock it? I put those questions to our panel of expert correspondence, Adam Fleming in Brussels. Andrew Walker economics. Correspondent rob Watson, our political correspondent, I asked rob. I is that anyway, she can get agreement inside outside her party to push a deal through. I guess the answer your question. Carolina is that it's possible. But if it was easy it would have been done by now, and it's worth remembering at the Reese of this crisis. And let's state again for the sake of any doubt that Britain is in the most profound political crisis since the second World War at the root of it is the fact that Britain's politicians simply cannot agree on what to do about the result of the referendum in twenty sixteen. It's a sort of simple basic an excess. And of course, the other thing the root of this crisis is the sort of visceral division within the governing conservative party over. What to do about Europe? It's been there for about forty years. It's what led to the referendum. And it's why now. Having some would say foolishly attempted to get Brexit salted as a conservative only project. Theresa May as now trying to make it a cross party project and any hope that might succeed. I think it'll be immensely difficult for three reasons. Firstly as personalities threes has many qualities, but the idea of charming people who have different points of view or come from different. Parties is probably not one of them. Secondly because in order to get across party agreement. She would have to soften Brexit. And that would almost certainly lead to a split in her conservative party will again, it's worth remembering what has been driving her along these last couple of years, it's been this sort of hope, and it would seem to me a vain hope of keeping the conservative party together. And then the third thing, of course, is that British politics are immensely tribal, and the idea that these other party leaders are going to come particularly Jeremy Corbyn from the labor party the idea he's gonna come to the rescue all their games comes to the rescue of someone who they see as. As a sort of weak and desperate rival. It seems to me as rather unlikely. Uttam you're in Brussels. The is apparently making preparations at least for article fifty to be extended were the UK requested. How dismayed a Europe's leaders by what they see happening in UK politics at the moment. I think preparations for extending article fifty in delaying Brexit, maybe putting it too strongly is definitely being talked about it speculated about and people are thinking about it. But I think actually it's not as far as properly laying the groundwork to make it happen yet. And of course, it would only happen. The you says the UK requested it, and it is absolutely not British government policy to delay Brexit from the infamous day to the twenty ninth of March twenty nineteen in terms of dismay again, that's quite the right word. There was surprise certainly amongst the EU officials. I was watching meaningful vote with the audibly gasped when the size of the defeat became clear. The EU knew it was coming though. And so they had time to write their scripts for their. Response, and it was a scripts because then it got leaks to me as often happens in the year. And the script was this is a British problem. We regret that you voted this deal done is the only deal on the table. Get your house in order and come back to us with a plan that you think will get through parliament. That's where the EU has stayed since many of the conservative party's fears over the future deal with Europe involve the so-called backstop for the island of Ireland to prevent new border checks being necessary between the north which is part of the United Kingdom south an independent country, which will remain part of the EU many worried that those checks or something that could bring about a return to the battle days of violence. His Emma Vardi in Belfast. There was apprehension on both sides of the Irish border leading up to the vote. Now, a continuing state of uncertainty hangs over the island of Ireland all the more heavily in Westminster and no deal. Brexit is the outcome. No one wants. And the odds are against it happening that talked to people. Around the Irish border, and that counts for little many Irish businesses rely on the UK market for buying and selling a variety of goods and particularly food. If tariffs were imposed overnight it could threaten the livelihood of people on both sides of the border. The Irish prime Minister, Leo varadkar has said no deal. Preparations are no longer contingency plans. They're now being implemented with measures being taken on key matters such as safeguarding the supply of medicines. Plenty of companies are doing the same changing supply routes putting contracts on hold and posing new investment in Northern Ireland. The D U P were opposed to Theresa May's deal.
