Fresh update on "queensland" discussed on All In The Mind
"Amy Enter Australian knit boy with the giants. Hi, it's only in the mind on Aren I'm. In Malcolm. In this time of restrictions and uncertainty that has come about because of the covid nineteen pandemic many of us are not feeling mentally well and resilient as we'd like to. It's not surprising that feelings of anxiety or depression can compromise our sense of wellbeing. Today we explore some of the changes that we can make in our daily lives to help prevent the development of more significant problems. First psychologist Dr Addy wooten explains how she sees the current state of mental health in Ustralia. We're seeing a lot of emotional and mental health responses to the current environment and the uncertainty that we going through and I think that's in the context of an already a high prevalence of mental health problems even before these pandemic came upon US people they're experiencing a whole range of mental health challenges from you know, high levels of stress, older whites, really complex mental health problems and saying a lot of discussion about the bird and that that is pricing on Alto, health services and the need for improved systems and I suppose that's why the focus on the role. Commissioning. Victoria and the Productivity Commission will hopefully explore how better support Australians mental health. Eddie Wootton says that we need to think differently about the language we use around mental health and how define it. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the World Health, organization definition of mental health but it's a really interesting one because it's completely different to what many of us would think when we think mental health and I talk about a state of well-being where every individual realizes he's all on potential can cope with the challenges of life can what productively and fruitfully and he's able to feel like they're making a contribution to their community. So it's quite a broad definition of mental health. And I think when we take that approach that it's leaving to optimum, we actually sat to think about mental health in a different way and I think it would potentially give us more agency in thinking. Well, what can we be doing to look after our mental health and window I need to access care or support if I have a challenge just like I do my physical hill. So. Perhaps the focus needs to be more on the line between having. Certain struggles and problems with the way you feel and your will bang and wins it Tepa marine to becoming a more serious problem. Exactly, and that's not to minimise the need for services or support for mental illness. But I think only thinking about that end of the spectrum Maine's that we forget about all of those other practices and skills that we can cultivate that can actually build really good mental health. Really good. Well, Bang. So how much difference can be made to someone who's beginning to struggle with? Anxiety or depression by getting early and helping them to help themselves. There's a lot that can be done. I think particularly with anxiety, there's a strong relationship between our inking patents and out in cognitive functioning and the experience of anxiety. Miss. Some research that suggests about forty percent of our mental wellbeing experience is made up of the factors is that we actually have some control over. Some of these genetic facial, some of these environmental and the world that we leaving the socioeconomic conditions that we leave in. But there is a big part of it that we actually do have control over and particularly if we get early, if we can take people skills that help them manage their thought processes or self regulates that they fight or flight responses in activating all the time, then we can give them skills that hopefully they can put into practice regularly and we're juice that impact of anxiety at wootton psychologist and CEO of the. Smiling mind I am Emmy Palmetto I play for the giants Netball Team and I'm twenty three, amy, I believe the Naples season has been delight because of the covert pandemic. So what challenges has the Covid nineteen pandemic presented for you? Personally yes. So this season has been a crazy one way started prices in November lost. We originally spiced to stop playing in May, and then it got pushed all the way back 'til about three months ago. So we have been playing for two months. We had to move everything up to Queensland. We've been playing in a hub in Queensland and we've been playing a condense as in. So we've been paint two games a week. So it's been very crazy. Amy Coming to says that circumstances created by the covid nineteen pandemic have certainly impacted her mental health. I've always not struggled with mental health issues, but it's always been there as part of my life you know I was I contracted is part of the giants net. Tame Lost Yeah I am had been training partner for the cheese before that and needed Bain a big dream of mine to make this team I'd put everything on. The line I dropped to subject at Uni had decided I'd go to bed at nine thirty every single night I'd done everything I possibly could didn't drink a tried to fight his own efforts on Netflix to make this team and when I made this team out. So ecstatic but I realized that I couldn't keep up that sort of commitment to spoil on needed to find some balance in my life and I really did feel quite. Obsessed in controlled by the idea of making this team, I made the same which was awesome. You know it'd been a lifelong dream. So I. Got There and I was like a half to play will have to prove to the girls that I deserve to be in this team and I started really having. With things I would struggle braiding on because I was so concerned about playing well and. Playing well of my teammates and my family that had old put so much on the line for me to make this team and I really was struggling I thought I maybe had asthma and I went to these kids AC Jays and I. It was coming back like you'll find you'll find your fine and eventually the doctor said, well, you need to go and see a sports psychologist and he was awesome for me. He really opened my mind to the whole side of. Mental Health and Sport and he told me that it's not asthma. Having hot issues, you just have anxiety and it was performance anxiety. So it was based around my sport, but you know it was anxiety or the same and my brother and sister had both had anxiety us in the late up to it and I found it really hard to understand. You know why why they couldn't get out of bed in the morning of why they felt seek like I was like this is. In your head this is mental illness is not is not your body like I found that really hard to understand. Now going through the breathing stuff that felt so physical that it really really opened my eyes to how debilitating mental illness can really bay. So what help did you get from the sports psychologist sh psychologists was awesome for me because he was also a clinical psychologist so he sort of had his. Fingers vice pots, he knew about the whole range of different types of mental illness and he was so good for me. He got me onto smiling mind which is something I use very often he gave me all these techniques breathing for being present in the moment and aware of my surroundings he made me right affirmations the full my games in every training session, I would rate affirmations to myself before I. Went into train and he was just a bit of a sounding board for me. I could go and talk to him and I just honestly I was so blown away by how much it helped my performance how much I was able to stay in the moment and feel like I.

Everywhere we go. We liked to do cultural exchange because first nations have spirituality was is beautiful and untouched by white middle class sort of new age is symptoms. So, with the aboriginal culture, it's the world's all this culture. It goes well over fifty thousand years and it was well before yoga and a lot of people site what has first nation. Philosophy principles and culture got to do with Yoga. And it actually has a lot to do with Yoga when we look at Yoga in the broader perspective as a place learning and healing.
Elaine Pearson on free speech at UNSW
"Battle of free speech on Australian University campuses. Allying piece was interviewed by the Media Department at the University of new. South. Wales about the human rights implications of Hong. Kong's new national security role as. Director at Human Rights Watch and an adjunct law lecturer at the university. She expressed concern about the laws and called on the United Nations Secretary General to appoint a special envoy in Hong Kong. Well, it's hardly a very controversial stuff in democracy lock Australia Russia. Will sell you think. We'll after the article, win online the pro. Chinese Communist Party students at the university they demanded the article be removed. You see caused a fence it was hurtful to the communist government in China. The university caved in and pulled the article. Only. After an outcry in the press was the article riposted. So. How did we get to the point when one of Australia's leading universities agrees to political censorship in favor of another nation state? Elaine. Joins me now aligned welcome to between the lines. Great to have you on the program. Thanks Tom. Now, the article is back on the University of New South Wales website but with caveats that the views expressed do not represent the views of the university you happy with this outcome. Well I'm glad that they put it back up. But I am pretty disappointed at the university's response I mean I think you know the views expressed in that article of us about the human rights situation in Hong Kong and I think that shouldn't be something that should be controversial and I was a bit surprised actually that the university was so quick to distance themselves from those views and I think you know I presumed that the ferocity of the campaign by the Pro Chinese Communist Party. Students really took them by surprise. But I think now the question really is how is Going to respond to this and I, think the students you know really are looking to see what is going to be the public response and what next is the university going to do to address these shoes mind you. This is not the only incident of academic freedom being compromised. Can you tell us about some of the other cases? Yeah, Human Rights Watch has actually been documenting Chinese document lit threats to academic freedom since two thousand fifteen not just in Australia about universities all around the world we've looked cases in the US the UK Canada France and right here, and what we've seen is that there is A universities are in a tight bind because the become quite dependent on foreign students. Many of those students coming from China those students have a very different world view, many of them and when they come here. Obviously you know coming here should come with a guarantee of academic freedom and what these should be quite basic things for an Australian university education. But in reality if those students try and for instance, join protests on campus about Hong Kong or Fin Jiang they are often then reported to the Chinese consulates So they are very afraid of doing anything like that they just. Try and keep the hits down and you know you only have to look at the controversy that's happened on Q. Withdrew Pavlou and how he has been treated to see that you know we you know it's not a very impressive response from the universities to to say, Scott Free speech and academic freedom only sorts of sensitive topics like shin-jang like Hong Kong, and like human rights in China. Now you mentioned drew heavily, he was expelled from the University of Queensland in part. For, organizing, what was it very noisy pro Hong Kong protests is that right? Well, he's been suspended. So I, think you know the industry who six months suspension six month suspension so He has been you know he's had been a pretty provocative campaigner. Some of these methods may have been a bit unorthodox, but at the end of the day, look at what happened to him on on that campus I. Mean there were fistfights erupting you cue between the different student groups you had in our pro CCP's students you know supporting the Communist Party trying to tear down. The messages from? Hong, Kong democracy supporters and the only person who's actually suffered any retaliation or reprisals is is drew himself, and so we wanna see universities really safeguard academic freedom and free speech and I think that means also acting against those who are intimidating or harassing all those on campus and making the campus a safe space to express all sorts of different views. Now in your case, a lot of the outrage amongst the Chinese students was expressed and organized I understand on Chinese soil media platforms way chat. which are now apparently watched by Beijing and to what extent you concerned about those platforms like we had and I think the other one is is a waiver we Yes that's right. Yeah I mean. These were the platforms where they organize. Look if students want to express different view an opposing you that's fine I think. I'm concerned is the extent to which this campaign became one of intimidating and harassing other students who expressed different views and as I understand it were threats made that they would report people to the Chinese consulate. For expressing excuse so I think the universities actually really need to monitor. Their social media channels and not just use them as a means of advertising for you know potential new students come to the university but also make sure that those channels are being you know being up being watched not to to censor free speech. But as I said, you know where that free speech is crossing the line. I also think they just need to be clear to the students. You know what what that means that it means. Going to a means being exposed to two different views and a free to discuss and debate those issues, but you're not free to shut down. The views of others. Of course, a line universities in Australia and this is cried sacred I've become increasingly dependent on. Overseas students for their budgets. Some have more diversified student bodies but others locked. University of new, South, Wales away opposite talking about University of New South Wales because of your special case this week they heavily concentrated on the Chinese market now since covert. US W has been one of the hardest hit by travel restrictions at recently made nearly I think five hundred staff redundant. Do you think this budget anxiety affected their handling of the issue align peace and? Yes I've been I think this reliance on the revenue from foreign students is something that you know all universities are facing now and so it it is putting them in a difficult position but I think that's why actually universities need to have a unified front. I think they really need to look at their existing. Codes of conduct they don't actually deal with these issues of foreign students might come from very different oil you, and so you know what I've suggested to you, and it's still view and to many other universities in Australia is to adopt a twelve point code of conduct specifically on these issues and they need to be alive to these issues. They need to incorporate it more into the orientation when you foreign students coming to campus so that they really understand what academic freedom means with our and they need to sort of monitor and. Safeguard, for you know acts of intimidation or harassment because I'm not so worried about myself but I'm more worried about other students on campus who will see how the situation has developed and then they might be too scared to speak out on. Hong Kong will fit in the classroom or other academics who might think twice about taking a meteorological on Hong Kong because they'll be worried about the potential backlash. So you know I think universities really need to take a stand on this and you know it needs to be done. You know jointly. By by all USTRALIAN universities.

Importantly, he's worked in the audio industry since nineteen eighty nine. Welcome, James, thank you so much for having me what we only spoke last week. Your against on the podcast festival, a joint production with podcasting buddies mean to doll and safety. That was a law show with you. Questions thrown in a producer might. this week prerecord so will move a bit slow pice if that's okay, Hanna absolutely fine I'm glad you said that. Look I feel like running exchange program. You're a Briton stride. Yet I'm in London. What's it like in strider? The moment I hear a lot of the lockdown restrictions eliciting. Yes, Oh, they're beginning to lift him in. We can't so. I'm in Queensland can't go anywhere in Queensland. We're not allowed to leave. Leave our great state, although I state frankly is big enough, so that's all okay, but yeah things are beginning to beginning to relax I'm not quite sure what the latest figures were, but certainly we we've had one case one coronavirus case in the last A. Week or so here in Queensland so you know we're doing. We're doing pretty well rather better than you guys think, and you'll side pod news dot net which I encourage one to sign up for the daily newsletter. Have you seen increasing traffic is forecasting immuno thriving during this pandemic I mean pain and increase in the amount of people getting it, which is nice and the amount of people. Using it, but I mean obviously. There's been an increase in podcasting as well so actually in May. We saw a new record for the amount of podcasts launch, ninety, six, thousand, five hundred. So you know you can clearly see and yes, some of that is going to be Ju to coronavirus, and the fact that you can launch a podcast of your home and you might. You might be a bit bored or whatever but I think also part of that is just because podcasting is actually growing and quite a lot of those. We're going to launch anyway so you know a tremendous amount of growth there and suddenly podcast hosts of I'm talking to that saying that as as significant increase in the amount of you know in the Mount of people signing up and the amount of support Kohl's that having an everything else which is old boats, said good I. Think so why we're going. Here are the podcasting Stat Guru. but What what number of these podcasts will quote a sort of survive? I mean lots of starting up because people bedrooms when I go back to work and things you think there'll be some on jeopardy, or what sort of half life of a podcast series. Yeah, I think that's going to be interesting, isn't it? I mean quite a lot of podcasts. Don't last particularly long it. It has to be said. And you know that may be bydesign. May Be because people you know, realize that actually producing great audio is quite difficult. And you know and so therefore they can't necessarily work too hard on that I mean if you have a look at the amount of the amounts of active podcasts there while there are one point one million podcasts in apple podcasts, and about half of those are active, so that means that they've published one episode in the Pasta Ninety days so about how for the market about half of them are inactive, and that's I think actually pretty good in terms of you know they longevity of podcasting the that you know? Know half a million still being currently made. You know that said that's quite thing i. think often asked is podcasting the new blogging and you've been around probably as long as I have gone Do you think they blend It's it's not simple to do a great audio show, but you can actually say something happened and get your news thoughts out there, but is podcasting blogging I. Don't think so I mean I. Ingenuity. It's interesting. I, was talking to US talking to Turkish television last night, and you know and they were saying. Is podcasting growing and I think one of the interesting things around focusing. He's been going for fifteen years but it's been nice, slow and steady growth every single year every single year. It's been getting bigger. But what podcasting hasn't Betas is it hasn't been. A My space or a Bibo or vine? Hasn't you know a dramatically? Increased and then all of a sudden. Disappears again.
NZ has eliminated COVID. Is Australia on track to do it too?
"So let's quickly start with New Zealand today. They've listed coronavirus restrictions after reporting active cases in the country. How confident can we be about it? Being a radical added there just to be clear what they're talking about. No community transition from its seventeen days. They say a reproductive cycle of the viruses fourteen days. So if you've read the virus, you would not expect to see any more. More within fourteen days, so it's really good news. We predicted on Corona Casta while ago that if we went for radicalization that sort of thing, you could expect to actually to lift restrictions quite considerably, because there's almost no chance of actually catching the virus. If you're sure, there's none left in the country and smaller states in Australia we're almost at that point so straight is lifting some restrictions Western Australia Queensland. Tasmania role in pretty good shape in terms of having almost eliminated the virus from those States New South Wales Victoria still a little. Little bit of communities spread, and you can't lift those restrictions such as you have in New Zealand in the two biggest states at the moment, and then you've got the issue necessarily of literal relaxing borders between states, and that's what they're reluctant to do. As long as some community transmission in Victoria and you south Wales, but we might get rid of that within a few weeks, in which case you might be in the startling situation where the whole nation can lift restrictions quite dramatically. Yeah I mean what's at a timeframe? Would we be looking? Looking for that, and how can we be sure that we continuing to have no virus in Australia you've got to wait so nor community transmission for at least fourteen days, but ideally maybe even a month so that you've gone food to reproductive cycles of the virus new. Zealand's waited for just a little bit over one reproductive cycle to say that they're pretty confident, but you've got to keep on testing and you've got to keep on testing people who any symptoms and you can't let down. Your guard doesn't deal with the situation overseas travel. and. People came in from overseas and relaxing those restrictions as soon as you do that then. Bets are off well like you say. We have seen a bit of community transmission in some states in Australia recently and so we're getting questions from people who attended the black lives, matter and indigenous deaths in custody rallies over the weekend Jessica asking for those who did attend the protests. When is a good time to get tested? Because we've talked before about the virus it of having an incubation period wins. Wins the most effective time to get tested, and there's a question for male along the same lines where hair. She said she had me saying that. If you get tested too early on infection, it's more likely you'll get a false negative. Well, listen to mail yet. We've been covering that and and on the health report. The recommendation from governments is absolutely right. You get tested at any time if any symptom. So any symptom it, oh, you're feeling lousy. You unexplained, even diarrhea. You've got call code loss of specially loss of taste or loss of smell. Then you need to be tested. It doesn't matter how many days will come pass since the protests. If you're a symptomatic and what to get tested then is, it's not clear exactly what you should do, but if you go on, that study quoted. Day One. It's not day one after the protests. We're already at day to day one. The test isn't very accurate because you don't have very much. If you've been infected dates, essentially becomes more and more accurate the more days after you've been infected. You're looking at the data. You'd probably say three or four days after the protests, you could get tested. That would be a day or two before symptoms would appear. Then that starts to be worth doing. And if you've still got no symptoms then day eight eight days after the protests, you'd have a second test. If, the first test was negative, and that's probably going in the evidence, the the most reliable regime still miss people. But if you WANNA get tested dramatic. It's a good thing to
Kevin Rudd on anarchy in the post COVID-19 world order, and could stable democracy be a reality in Iraq?
"Former Prime Minister Kevin right on the geopolitical consequences of the pandemic. He predicts the coming post covered. Anneke plus Iraq believe it or not. It's future looks brought today than it has an any point in the past Dick. I'd stay with us for my chat with Linda Robinson from the Rand Corporation. She'll tell us while we should not give up on Baghdad's fragile. Democracy Corona virus continues to take a toll on the health of nations around the world. One thing has become clear the winners and losers not who we might have expected a year ago. The virus is taking an uneven and unpredictable. Course through the world defying. I usual assumptions about power and resilience. Some small poor countries being left relatively unscathed all powerful prosperous nations. I've been ravaged. So what does this mean for global order and for the strategic robbery between China and the United States? Will everything change or is the virus? Mealy accelerating trends that were already in place. Former prime minister of Australia. Kevin Rudd is the President of the Society Policy Institute in New York. He's written an essay in the most recent issue of Foreign Affairs magazine in New York. It's called the coming postcode Enki and he joins me now. From Queensland's Sunshine Coast Kevin Rudd. Welcome back to between the lawns. Good to be with you on between the lines. Now you'll recent essays titled The coming Postcode Anneke Y Anneke. You're good real turns color of international relations you would know that realists assume that. Anneke is in fact the natural state All the International Society of states rent was Headley Bull who wrote about this crowd along time ago and Australian realist and Australian realist. Ten within the real documents that order actually represents the exception rather than the rule So why do I argue this I argue it because the current order as we've done since forty five is underpinned by and large by US geopolitical pound Gio economic power secondly That's become challenge at least by China Thirdly the Cova crisis has turbo charge The hit on American real and perceived power. But there's a full factor as well. Which is the impact which the Cova crisis has on China's Powell not least the damage to its economy the flow through effect to its ability to spend on the amounts of money on its military and on the belt and road initiative example but more importantly international perceptions of China in the developed in the developing world. So where do we end up? We end up not with The same old order as in the past but a slow and steady drift towards more anoc order. We're both China and the US damaged and the institutions of global governance with the UN. The will bank the National Monetary Fund the G. Twenty etc become increasingly the terrain for geopolitical battle. Between these two wounded POWs a K. Sunday the country's the victory he but some analysts say that China's heavy handed approach eccentric lockdowns violence. That's been a political win for Xi Jinping in Matt strengthened the Central Authority of the communist regime. How would you respond to them? Well let's look at That argument within China itself. There's been a huge hit on the accompany And as a result of that China will have its worst gross numbers twenty twenty the Ted in over half a century since the end of the Cultural Revolution almost That is huge. It undermines She Jinping's China Drain which was One pillar of which was for China to quadruple. Its G. D. DP by twenty twenty measured against two thousand levels this single year of itself. Economic non-performance blows a hole amidships in that and then secondly on top of that. Tom You've got the problem which arises in terms of internal political debates within China so and I think some growing levels of resistance to Xi Jinping's on leadership and finally as I mentioned before The blowback around the world in terms of the economic damage To economize both developed and developing causing a big question mark to a rise in terms whether China has in fact being the risk to the world's best friend because of the outbreak of this virus. So these factors I think. Qualify the overall argument you hear from some the China's authoritarian model in managing the crisis domestically translates into a geopolitical win the China internationally. I don't think that necessarily holes walk conversations. Do you think heaven. I going on right now in Beijing over China's place in the world I mean is the division division over this so-called Wolf Warrior this is the and diplomacy we often hear about a division between that Wolf Warrior. Diplomacy versus say China's desire to promote soft power. Chinese politics in some respects is not dissimilar to elements of politics. We and other countries. That is you find nationalist. Ten internationalists you find a local ists globalists' you find audio logs versus as it were reformers and pregnant at this and so the as political system while it's Control by Xi Jinping's leadership still has all these tensions and personalities within it so the debates now I think are of a twofold. How do we allow this to happen? In the first place what failed in terms of the processes insistence China put in place after the Saas Crisis of two thousand and three to prevent a pandemic or epidemic as it was then from happening again. The second debate is how the Hillary you get the economy back together again given the China a economy with forty percent of Gdp comes from the traded six or the economy and International. Trade is being blend. Bits by this crosses and the other debate again between nationalists internationalised is the one. You've just touched on the Tom. Which is China's wolf worried diplomats out there launching attacks against any critique of China's performance On the one hand defend the party's legitimacy and on the other hand older more seasoned diplomat saying this isn't actually contributing much to the improvement of China's global image those discussions and debates underway. At the moment we're talking about this wolf warrior diplomacy. What do you make of China's recent boycotts threats of boycotts of Australian Exports Bali? Beef what what's going on well as I've said in other recent interviews since those public statements by the China's ambassador Australia it's unacceptable in my view for any ambassador accredited to any country to receive public threats against the host country In City five years of more dealing with the Australian China relationship I don't recall previous Chinese ambassadors of having done that not by any Australian diplomat ever having done that irrespective of the crisis of the day with was ten on all the things that I went through when I was in office etc so I think as a matter of shall we say diplomatic practice. What occurred then was regrettable as as being some of the hotline commentary. Which emanated from the Chinese nationalist media? the bottom line is however the Chinese nationalists have seen The effectiveness All the some of these sorts of measures when applaud various countries in the past sorts of economic leverage which China replied to no way out to no way through the Nobel Prize Committee Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to a famous Chinese dissident And I've also seen how those Economic Leverage points of work with various of the Europeans. So this is not alien to the Chinese playbook my argument about China's Australia's management of The relationship in prison is that if the Australian government's of the view and a view I in general support that there needs to be an independent international inquiry as to the origins the virus transmission of the virus notifications to the WHO and threw them to the world community etc. Then again to put that Ford isn't as trade in government and then do some work on it. I get a few other governments to come along with you an advance that through the multilateral machinery which rather than just blow it out as a thought bubble That's the way which you do. Real things in the international community rather than I. Fear sometimes pitching a diplomatic initiative primarily for domestic political leverage into straighter. What complicates matters? Further is president trump's theory that the virus was leaked from a lab in Wuhan and raises the question. Why would China agree to enquiry without losing this between the lines on? Abc Radio National. The familiar voice. You're hearing is former prominence to Kevin. Rudd is now president of the Asia Society Policy Institute in New York. We've been talking about his article in the current issue of Foreign Affairs magazine. Kevin we'll talking about China and how it's paid a price as a result of this current ivars. Let's turn to the United States. How badly damaged is the use in your judgement? I mean we'll recover reasonably quickly With a change of administration in November or does the damage go deep. Perhaps too deep for recovery has been deep damage politically. The the. The House is a divided house within the United States. Those of us who have followed. Us politics of the many years have rarely seen it This divisive and that actually is a real factor in terms of constructing a post presidential election national consensus on how America engages the World. And the future. American politics has become so binary including on America's own future will view on the economic damage. It's huge. This is the biggest hit on newest economy at least since nineteen forty-six and the recovery from the war and probably since the depression the end of the depression and thirty three So this takes a while to recover But the American economy know a history of resilience. Look what happened after the global financial crisis? But well I was going to make the point to is enormous capacity for change and renewal. I mean you think about its recovery from the civil war that oppression in Vietnam. You being a bit too pessimistic. Kevin. Well I live in the United States and I actually listened to the debate on back in Australia now and when my American interlocutors Republican and Democrat Friends of mine over twenty years who A positive let's call it. The Foreign Policy National Security Policy Machinery signed that it's become increasingly hard to forge consensus these days across the aisle on America's behavior in the world That is a real issue. Then it's not just my external analysis it's part of the internal analysis within the US itself. Do I think the United States can come through the domestic political Malays and the Economic Destruction? Which has occurred? Yes I do. Because it's remarkably resilient country But I think a precondition is that We see a Democrat. Win this November it's not that. I am a A cheerleader for Joe Biden. Personally I barely know the man Bought he's lucky to put together a mainstream Competent Foreign Policy and National Security Policy Tame as opposed to Frankly the chaotic nature of the trump administration on most foreign and national security policy questions. And that I think is necessary for America to rebuild. Its alliances abroad rebuild. Its credibility in the eyes of the risks of the will and to overcome what has been an extraordinary period where America rather than taking the lead in the global recovery From the virus both in public health systems and economic terms as simply being missing in action and in fact the unable to contain it's the damage domestically

Yeah I think for me. It was a low the Tom I am. I'm coming onto thirty now. And so being a young entrepreneur and saying other young entrepreneurs full of indigenous latest. Probably like pretty intimidated. I was like Oh man these all these ideas a deadly like I should have thought of that But then I like you guys. Sharing and the facilitated tristen was sharing that A lot of people like early in the states have these expos in forums where I would pretty much plan how cities and how things would be divided in built and then from there that people have got the knowledge in the nine how where to position themselves to to get work where to position themselves to united. Start a business or bill equity and ask first nations people. We never really sold the reason to build up and build high things. We were living off the land sustainably living with each other trading with each other trading with Malays in Indonesia that went through China and dumb CEOS a concept that we sort of bring best both worlds really. I applaud you for that. And now you'll see you. Yes we'll get back to that. Let's rock back to dot. Cue the sound. That does time. What but let's take it back to growing up which you grow up you grow up. In country or country or countries all grew up in up McCulloch Soda Knowles In central Queensland depending on what body look at in jail grow up there in all of my family are in Rockhampton I basically Doesn't as denies dies was that my grandfather was a stockman escape.

The astrophysicist and immunologist who've dropped everything for COVID19 - Science Interrupted Part 2
"So most of what I did was a combination of data software and statistics. This is astrophysicist. Dr Sam Hinton from the University of Queensland in January Hey submitted his PhD so I worked on Supernova cosmology and that's essentially taking exploding stars somewhere in the universe and using that to figure out how far away they and once you figure out how far away something is and how bright it is you can try and map out the history of the universe. Obviously things that are further away are further back in time because it takes time to get to us so the idea was if we can map out the last fourteen billion years of the universe ended expansion that hopefully we can try and characterize the nature of dark energy and dark Meta. That's my main eight right and obviously that's a problem. That's all about modeling and Statistics. So I created Asian hierarchical models and other sorts of models try and encapsulate all the nitty gritty details. That happened in the universe. In some statistically robust way so just a little way project just a tiny one that managed to consume years of my life. And whether that's because I just wasn't smart enough or whether it turns out that the Hamid actually really is complicated. Well I have opinions on both if only I was smarter. And if only the universe was simpler okay so taking on the entire history of the entire universe right there. So how is this? Astrophysicist and software engineer now suddenly found himself working on another big but totally different problem. The cove nineteen pandemic today on the show too young scientists who have had to rapidly retrofit and translate talents in an unprecedented moment in history. Sam Foreign doesn't shy away from a challenge. If he's name sounds familiar to you. That means you might be a fan of this stamp. Tonight's GonNa play out that I wanted to crunch the numbers for this other man to do it. There's computer I don't know if he's going to go hunt. I didn't even know. Cross was going to play his idol. New Sam was a popular contestant in the twenty eighth season of survivor Australia but bravado aside what use is an astrophysicist in fighting a global pandemic after all as far as we know now corona virus has made it into space yet and that's a relief as poor people on the International Space Station. There's no ICU. Up there what essentially happened was once I started getting serious. Everyone just put out feeling the same. We need help looking at a whole bunch of these tasks and this happened at Uku. Enriches where I work and through the grapevine. People said. We're looking for someone with all these skills and then Sam supervisor happens to be the acclaimed dark energy astrophysicist and TV presenter Professor Tamra Davis She's also passionate about astrophysics people using their research knowledge and skills in non astrophysics domains. So Tamra put Sam's name Ford The first thing was surely there are people that are better suited than me and salmon just accepted a job offer in the US at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. That's a big deal. But when Sam was told more he went back to Tamra and said. Are you all right if I just take months off from my actual normal astrophysics project to work on? This and her response was absolutely fine. Don't worry about it. We'll figure something out. Get on the project and do what you can. It was there was no chance that I was telling this down. It was a way to make a real contribution and astrophysics You know we don't make significant contributions every day to society we may every now and then invent something like the digital camera and was like yes. This is amazing but covet is a right here right now. One hundred percent immediate problem so there was absolutely no hesitation jumping into it so just like that. In a matter of moments Sam's life has suddenly turned upside down. Oh yeah if I thought I had long hours before. There's nothing like the current hours that we have to deal with. Sam is now the lead daughter analyst on a really crucial international project rolling out in real time in intensive care units across the world during this pandemic. And if you've seen the footage coming out of those units you'll know that this is a hellish frontier and what we need damage. Dice seeing young patients patients people of all age ranges. Who are just incredibly sick. And you can even hear now as. I'm walking through patient rooms in the hallway. It just your oxygen the sound of the pulse ox this ventilator later. Dan has joined. What's called ECO car? The global project headed up by trail-blazing intensive care specialist professor John Fraser from Prince. Charles Hospital in Brisbane AIKMAN COD is a mighty Akron Rod. It stands for Extra Corp. membrane oxygenation for twenty nine thousand nine novel Corona Virus Acute Respiratory Disease a card so when your heart and lungs can't do the job of oxygenating your blood and it. Komo machine allows that to happen outside. If you body. We want to know essentially. How can we best help as many people as possible? So we have very finite resources with this outbreak. We don't have an infinite amount of nurses doctors and ventilation equipment that we can just put everyone on so we need to know. Hey if if patient x comes through the door and they look like this but is the best sort of ventilation can give them if we just give them a mosque. Are they going to be fine or is this a patient that needs something more severe because a nurse can generally do around ten c-pap mosques so the very easy ventilation but if they have to actually mechanically ventilate someone help out the longest mechanically and it's essentially one nurse per patient and we don't have that many nurses when we have so many patients coming in so we really want to be able to say when someone walks in the door that they're probably going to need this outcome will be x? Y. Depend however retreat them. So when someone comes in we take the age we take their weight and then we need to know what other things do have do. They have high blood pressure Do they have diabetes? Are they smoke I? What is the condition of their lungs? There's so many things so many different data points that you can gather in the medical world ten thousand different questions that you could ask but what we have in our data time series so for two weeks after people. Get to the ICU. How are they red blood cells evolving? How of their platelet counts doing what we want to do is compare their outcomes and Dan data with other people other healthy people or people that have different afflictions so that we can say this is the thing that's unique about Karina buyers. This is one of the predict is here. That's different from anything else. And it's very hard to get that sort of time. Series data doctors and nurses are working around the clock to keep people alive. They're exhausted so around the world. Medical students are stepping up and being recruited to help collect the data every day. You need to be updating the data. And that's why we need for example medical students to come in because it is such a large burden if anyone is trying to also treat patients on top of that. We have around five hundred different variables from the different patients. And about a hundred of those we have information hopefully essentially every day that they're in ICU. So that we can see how they evolve over time. I can't say too much mall because whilst I have a huge list of variables in front of me things like pro calcitonin. I don't know how they used in a medical context all that I can do generate the reports and then worked with the clinicians in real time to say. What do you want to see? What would you expect to see? And how can I best present these models and this information to you so that you can draw conclusions from it? The urgency of the situation means. This is being taken very seriously. Clinicians are working in the dark right now with this new virus so they'll benefit from a Biegel clearer picture of what's happening for patients around the world. Oh Yeah it's absolutely unbelievable. I've never been involved in a project this lodge and especially in the current predicament. All the usual blockades and the bureaucratic slowdowns that you encounter have just been removed. So we have fifty countries now from Estonia to Kuwait to the United States is coming online the UK Italy Spain strategies coming online now two tons of countries and then each country also has all the hospitals in it. So we've got around two hundred fifty hospitals and that number grows every day.

Australia is doing well, but where are we heading next?
"We thought we'd start today by taking a bit of a look about where Australia currently stands. It seemed to be a lot of ideas on control measures popping up. But we don't really seem to have a clear direction on where we're heading pam. Scott Morrison still says when many weeks away from restrictions being lifted the state government seeing less willing to open things up soon. What's the broad thinking? Well the broad thinking is that with say forty or fifty new cases a day which is where we're going so that's an increase of forty or fifty forty fifteen new cases every day. They stay infectious for a week or two maybe even three so that becomes an infectious pool of people that so every fifty exit from that pool but it slowly accumulates and that pool can become a very large number very quickly and there was a day. Nobody knows exactly the day in the end of November beginning of December when there was only one person in the whole wide world with what we came to be known as covered nine hundred only one person bat to an animal to a human being. And that's only four and half months ago and is now nearly two million people infected over well over one hundred thousand people have died four and a half months from one single person. So if you've got forty people fifty people every day and you lift restrictions and you don't quite know what those where you live restrictions and don't have a plan for it it becomes really quite tense to nor too because we could we could slip out of control incredibly quickly with doubling times every two or three days and that would be not good and it's called a second wave so in international terms we. We're no becoming one of the poster child's we talked about Taiwan South Korea Hong Kong. And as we said yesterday the hope would be. But you've got to be deliberate about it that you get down to new cases and some of the states in Australia are getting down to almost that level where there is just tiny tiny numbers. Scientists showed a Western Australia. They're almost at that point now where they're getting new measurable community spread and Western Australia. They're measuring everybody in theory. They're testing everybody. Who's got a call a cord? So here's here's the thinking I I suspect which is they're scared to lift it off because they know there's GonNa be very hard to button people back down and countries that have had to do that. Find it very difficult. You let people out so there's gotta be a plan and schools daycare might be the first things that you open up and we can talk about that in a minute based on research then you might open up workplaces. There's enormous pressure just to open up now as there is in the United States. And when there's still a fair bit of virus around you just don't want to do that and the states are at the front lines you think about federation like ours is that the the Commonwealth sets policy. They received money through taxation in distributed. The KOMO's doesn't run anything. It's the states that run stuff run. Education system healthcare system. They're the ones running the stuff and so the states are the front line and the states tend to be more aggressive and assertive than the Commonwealth. Because they are at the frontline the interesting thing. When you look overseas is that the metric that you'll see when you watch the news or the newspapers is the number of deaths each day. Have you noticed that? Teagan people and say well you know a good day today? The the the number of deaths in Italy has fallen off in New York City. And so on which is good news. So the the reason they're doing that and not quoting death rates a lot of our conversations early on in Corona Caswell. What's the mortality rate? Is it three point? Six percent three point four percent one percent less than one percent. In many ways the proof of puddings in the number of deaths that you get it kind of is a reflection of the of the amount of corona virus in the community two weeks ago. And when you start to see the desk falling away it means that two weeks ago something was happening because people were in lockdown. That's usually the reason getting better at testing while the death star to disappear. But as you've seen in a couple of places you see deaths flicking up again. It's very very fragile. And that's why politicians advised by their medical advisers. Just being very very careful but let's say we got it under control industry. Let's say we eliminated or almost eliminated it. Here if the rest of the world still in the throes of a pandemic what would normal even look like here. Normal could be everything a lot of things except for overseas travel. I can't see a point in anywhere anywhere anytime soon where you're going to allow travel you. You're going to lift the borders and allow planes to fly in from Dubai. London India an American because they will just get the epidemic back. So I think we have to accept as a nation that the borders are closed for quite some time. What sometime is it depends on where vaccine emerges over there are treatment emerges and so on. There are a couple of game changers around. So let's assume there's nobody coming in from overseas then the question is do you allow free movement between states. Well I think if every state is at zero then you would probably start allowing people to move between states so you can corn holiday to Queensland or whatever it is so but everybody's got to be Zero of New South Wales has got a lot of cases. People are not going to want people from New South Wales to be moving around the country similarly for Victoria. So then you try to get your local economy back on its feet and so you allow schools and big care to come back which releases parents to start going back to work and then you might allow people to go back to work in non essential occupations and then after a month or six weeks you might allow restaurants to open with social distancing and then sit and watch with massive testing very expensive testing tens of thousands of people the person positive or nobody positive. And if you manage to keep the lid on it then you just slowly let things go back. But I think we'll still be social distancing for some time to come but we'll be able to get out more whether there'll be football matches before two thousand people with theaters will reopen with a two thousand people. I think those are things for the future and not immediately but we can start going back to work and getting some of the basics of the economy going one should down to one two three single digit numbers or zero. Well one of the things we do in credit cost is answer questions from audience and someone asking about death rights and why the death rites differ between countries and between economies and between East and West. What do we know what we know is that you see twenty two thousand deaths in the United States? When was the last time I looked ten thousand deaths in the UK? I think it's almost pointless to talk about death. Rates Something Business. Who want the restrictions lifted? Now say all well you know if it's under one percent this is not something to worry about is starting to seasonal flu. Well try telling that to one of the twenty. Two thousand families have lost somebody in the United States. It's almost academic high mortality rates for for this and and as we've said before the actual case fatality rate depends on. How many people you know in the community who actually have the virus in the United States. They haven't a clue in it's they don't really have a clue so it's really hard to know what the actual rate is and we talked about the diamond princess one of the cruise ships giving a rate of one percent and vein depends on how the mortality rate is going to be higher in countries. Where they don't of intensive care units where you can't go to hospital and get oxygen. It's going to be higher when people are malnourished in poor poor environments and then the numbers Luke large because the numbers infected incredibly large. So it's almost pointless. We know that it's probably ten times more on average maybe thirty times but somewhere in that range more than seasonal flu and large numbers of people are dying and the potential is for our hospital system to be overwhelmed as indeed. It has been in New York and parts of Italy a lot of jurisdictions in Australia looking at school from high in term two but nominee this new research at showing just how effective school closures Aaron Can Charlie spread there. This was a group that published in the Lancet. And they've taken available information from the SARS one epidemic as well as what we know from recent school closures in Hong Kong China and elsewhere and try to come to an answer and where they landed was wonders. Not sure at the moment what the contribution is. Kids are not big spreaders but they do catch the disease. They don't get fever. A lot of the time which means new teen temperature at school is not necessarily going to work so two to four percent contribution to total deaths from SARS in other words the contribution of the children have to spreading it to other people maybe ten percent contribution to the pandemic but again and then you've got the social costs of Closing schools and I think that where they landed with an editorial is that if you reopen schools. It's going to make a bit of a difference. Not huge to the pandemic but schools need to be really careful about hygiene and social. Distancing are going to reopen so in summary most models that they've got if all schools were open preschools and so on they would contribute maybe two to four percent increase in the number of deaths from covered nineteen because they've spread it to their grandparents and other places and maybe about ten percents of the total spread of the virus. So that's the story. And maybe if you then put it in social distancing schools lots of hygiene you could minimize that risk even further.

going to help me i don't know the start of the word yeah well you know i mean with that but i i was very unfortunately i had some good friends who you know very understanding and and i were you know very happy to help and it became a little bit of a running enjoyed you know i'd be sitting there with the computer it'd be going ahead of you spell how do you spell hattie spun eventually that that turn the tele fano sit around and go why don't we just got through it truth and why don't we just cut through it it's going to be going to be quicker unless annoying if you just because only one god what a great group of frame yeah yeah laws aw and so did you having your diagnosis did that make you feel better about yourself in the challenges you've had how did you react twenty ted time to process i said well i guess from my point of view you know i was very fortunate to arrive in hong kong and i played basketball quite a serious level alive there for southern china and so i didn't feel bad about myself at all i just so you know i'm just not and so you know academic kind of person so from that regard it was i what he did was allowed me to understand what had gone on and so you know by simply sort of you know cutting a hole in a piece of pipe tracking it down sentence by sentence i could i could suddenly we start absorbing knowledge and i could actually remember it and and i didn't jumble the words around because before that basically arita a sentence and i'm picking words out random that our ladder the paragraph to kind of just make sense in my head and i'm just talking gobbledygook nobody goes you know it just wasn't making any sense at all and so you know before that when i was reading stuff sometimes i'd be reading it you know four five six six seven times to try and understand what the hell the pie was talking about so yeah for me uh what it did was was help in terms of my ability to be able to get through the course now i'm certainly no great shakes as an academic you know but but i got through and and i i wouldn't have got through i think without the help of computers my friends and the ability to BI but a simple cut a hole in the piece of pipe and didn't track it down a package that is really simple atip tipped probably some of alice's might wanna try i might suggest that to my brother because he doesn't read a lot but hey says a wins old move on the page i wonder what my well for me for me it's not you know i wouldn't even necessarily say that i move but i literally if i look at paragraph that goes to the five or six sentences is in it i really struggle to follow it line by line word by would i end up picking words at a three or four lines belie couple of lines above you know one might be before the word one might be after the word and my brain will just sort of try to make sense of good old sizes quite often what i you know if i'm reading something what i i will actually make sense but it's just completely not relevant because it's not what's in front of me i'll just pick all these different words at oh yeah oh yeah well i don't read much hey even today you know i i'll have a computer talk to me a lot more than i actually read the words myself it's however we can taken the information i think that it's listening rating so can you walk us through your working career because it's being very diverse basketball shadow minister in parliament so what is well i'm anne i thought right back at the beginning you know i've i've done everything from sort of you know wash wash cows sell jeans i work in advertising agencies and that's when i was in london i worked for video production i worked for publisher publish probably if i use the publishers the example the work i used to do for them was actually an early version of XL i think visit calcutta hewlett packard computer and it was all just numbers and data on spreadsheets with big declines tracking everything across everything's neat little box and all the boxes lined up i've got to help me track it across and and i could do the maths of it right so i'd be able to see if i might mistake pretty quickly because i'd look at it and go that number the magazines and so you know different times i had different jobs where i could overcome it i got into trouble a number both times for not having things spell correctly when i've had to label things and you know in the ad agency i remember posting off some stuff you know part of my job in the was was in a packing room and and you know i've got the address completely wrong and something really important hasn't arrived where it's supposed to be told him and i'm in favor of trouble for or it but but you know then so whilst i was at university i got into hospitality where i were doing security and by work and obviously there's very little writing involved in that and a lot of talking and meeting people and making sure you're keeping people happy but it's not a great deal of of written and so i found working in hospitality by style was at university and then even after university i found that industry suited me a lot because i was dealing with people i had to be able to talk and you know when you use a till so you don't have to read what is on all the buttons and way you're pushing you just have to know where they are on the on the tail and so i'd cod allocated that how cod and you know you know you could easily workout which buttons away without getting yourself confused because of the colors and the position so even today you know i find i find using a cable a lot easier than handwriting because i don't get the wrong later as often just because i'm simply on my way is on the cable so it's hard to get a big day mixed up because they're on their own different places on the keyboard whereas if i'm riding you know sometimes i'll i'll finish writing and it's only when i look back at it i'm telling you idiot what have you done you've got the wrong you've put the wrong letter there yeah so then how did you end up in government because you have to read a lot in yeah well well interestingly you know you know that that would be that would be the the thing that most people would think and to a certain extent that that is that is true but what i would say is you know off the reason i went into politics is out of frustration with the government running a small business listen i kept taxing me and regulating me and giving me these piper to fill out and eventually i just got sick of it and so while someone's going to go and tell them that you know this doesn't help papal run businesses so so that's what led me to government and a lot of that work is listening to people a lot of that work is is actioning and and trying to get solutions for people and as a local member you know your job is often often to help people nagai shy the bureaucracy and one part of your job is constituency a struggling in dealing with the the she a bureaucracy of government and trying to provide them help and so for me i find that easy because i can listen to what they're saying often i can empathize because i've been that go up against the bureaucracy not being able to follow her understand the rules and you know a lot of my working nights situation we'll be done by signing people just get on the phone and guys and they'll say can you email it to me and i'm like no i will do a TV and of you and let everybody know what i think if you don't fix it and and so so that sort of it has been i we've with the legislation i've got a pair of very good headphones and i'm a microphone there actually gaming hit finds with a microphone so you know i can dig tight and i do that a little bit you know computers getting better and better at listening and being i would prepare pair written what for that i also use a translation company where you know you put it you recorded on your fine send it off and coupla lighter and arrives back spelled correctly and punctuated and light out and then i can talk it through with stuff in the office to just make sure that there's not anything silly on in that translation license so the process and in terms of the rating a lot of knowledge acquisition for me is by having meetings and talking mm two people and also you know where i can use audio books online and you know oh my i then get to a situation where i do have a program that will you know just your apple stuff we'll just read it to you it's a little bit robotic but if i'm reading it often get supply at the same time so that you know the computer saying and and on following it helps me keep on track and then lastly is just quite literally i'll get the ruler out which sits right buddy edge my my desk you know all a lie down on the paper you know in in terms of delivering a speech in parliament when it's technical that's when i feel the my stress i we'll have a situation where i'll i'll either use a piece of paper and track down to pay jaw aw or i'll spread my fingers across on the line and also guy lawn at a time and you know we use a particular type feis in particular point size and particularly eh spicing and if i find myself getting lost i literally every single page i have prepared he's a completely new utopic side that if i get lost i literally you know either putting a piece of paper to my left and my right now i haven't covered it properly because i've just lost my way on a piece of pipe backout lighter and have another cracker why so many strategies in place it's amazing technical nickel skills that just blew me away i still can't get dragon spatial even dictating into my phone promptly say it's amazing yeah and they're all different things but when i deliver a speech handsaw to brilliant because they pick everything up and they can spell them punctuate and they i do everything so my my written speeches have never looked good as when hands out of taunted up for me but but i i often will do just a mind mind matt i have i have a software program but i do a lot of it just by hand and i just do a mind map sort of oh you know k. phrases in a bubble so i've got a ten minute speech on no my topic i'll have my sort of central topic in the middle and i'll run ten bubbles off it h with just maybe two or three words inside the bubble which is the prompt and that is them at all us to to speak from from and no yeah you know you'd like them the mind map and i bought a program to try and make it look a bit more professional because the poor people at parliament they have you got any notes speech and i sent him this pace of scribbling MS look at what has he done you know the literally the the the mind map for me where i just i just have a three wood central theme and then i nine o'clock right in front of you and you know i know that i've got to talk for one minute on each of these topics and now that's as the stressful ones for me when it's technical and and you're talking about you know clauses to a bill and you you've got to be very precise yukon you can't get these clauses wrong you know you can't you can't cite forty five oh i've instead of fifty four you know and that's you know you'll you'll say mina highlighted non-aligned outside a couple of times just the show that i get it right and so i find that the mice stressful talking off the cuff i find much more comfortable so when you're doing the ones with the numbers is at times as well because i've been going to parliament quite a bit now being watching people do this speech is so when the time does his wealthy that would be a lot of pressure i struggle doing public speaking normally.

JCS's and and so at at i five fifteen saudi couldn't be attain here you tight what i levels in JCS's and i i i had entered into a lot of JCS's that my teachers didn't seem force i meant i had to pay for them and because the the teachers said you chance of passage not horse we're not gonna do it so i ended in oriented in for these external exams at my mom's requests i and if you pass you then have to go and get a piece of pipe on by your teachers and you get refunded the money that you spent on the external exam and the one that i was really interesting directly to which was english language and and english literature and unmined which teacher was miss lucy who for whatever reason never dog knows me as dyslexic but she knew there was an issue and shields i knew i wasn't stupid so she for english literature we did the merchant of venice and i learned the merchant of venice by going to the ply about about four times and she got me out of the public library set of four old vinyl albums and i just listened to it i run over and over either and when i when i finished i passed the eleven JCS's levels which was more than most because i'd into the whole bunch of stuff off myself including language and english literature by the lowest grade you can get and still consider hospital the pass apostle was signed that's fine you know yeah one of the greatest things was was going and seeing her because she was happy for me but then i remember going from her to go and see my physics stage joe who even though i've done very willing physically he wouldn't enemy into the exam used on work and anyway long story short he had to sign off on on me i how did that make you feel that the teachers didn't want you to seek those example that family have to pay money for you to sit them because because i didn't believe you would pass like did that knock yourself confident so did it give you that determination to prove them wrong you know i was an angry child so it was grim in determination for me and in my family didn't pie i was working part time selling james at that point on the market and i paid knows the time into i was determined so you know middle work and technical drawing woodwork you know these are all the subjects that are taken as moy moi selections through high school 'cause obviously are tried to avoid anything record me to read or write a lot but i couldn't get out of singlish in english literature so day with the two most challenging whereas everything else i was doing was locked physics chemistry maths meta were technical drawing so you know that was all subjects where there was limited amount of rating to be done and limited amount of writing to be done it's amazing and especially sean that the chemistry physics max because that's still a lot of a lot of people struggle with math so it was good that you had that area that you felt strongly to gain carrying g e yeah well i mean it it was weird because i used to go as i said my school was strained so i was set one for mass for chemistry set lonzo ball aji remedial for english and before we got to our options i was reminded the bunch about subjects that world language based and so i had a a really diverse group of friends in big school from what would affectionately be known as the buffon's to affects what would be known as the troublemakers oh oh i scout backwards and forwards in a di between you know those classes so school you know i had i had a lot of fun at school but i look back now and think how much easier it would have been and how much of the english subject i could have learned if i'd been able to acquire the knowledge differently instead of having to read it oh sidewalk if if you said to me what's in them what's the prow nam dan what's the what's the what's and i i was not turned on to listen to that in class at all ever so even even today i would still struggle to sit down and give you a description of those things i think i only really learnt that when i did my speech pathology kohl's and we have to look at set a who sentence and then you had to ride which would made it a full sentence otherwise i would have been the same so how old were you then when you were diagnosed with dyslexia it was at after school yeah so so i left school young and i i worked in london for a couple of years and then i was on the whitest say my dad who was living in perth breath and i i stopped in hong kong i played basketball i've been there for a while and i had a job on the side for video production company and so i did that sort of four and a half years and what i learned from march on as friends was that education was really important and it was so highly valued by them and their families where a whole family was sacrificing everything for one of my friends to be able to go to hong kong university the city and that was the first time it really occurred to me that you know this is something that must be really important if if if you know like his brother his mum he's sister-in-law his dad working to pay for him to go to university then i need to understand a little bit more about this university thing i'm you know i'm guys on the world was thought he different and not as many people as a percentage went to university but that was what might be interested in the world of academia was much as friends and i was in hong kong or saudi you know this is sort of nineteen eighty seven around there and lots of people were up in show trying to recruit including key you you take so i sort of thought well starting citizen let's find out about this cute tell you so i applied from iva and was was accepted by them not coming through a normal practice all i had done some pop time study the in hong kong to get to a point where i could sit an exam with those guys and i i kind down to australia in i d- knowing and i sort of turned up on came postseason they told me i had to do this thing called and eloquence course before i could start university university and i was on yeah okay that's fun and i turned up and i didn't know what another course was but turns out what it was an english language intensive course for the c. students and so all right and the guy's looking at me strangely going so you'll first languages guages english right yep and he's like so what are you here for i'm not hold on is this is the place piper told me i gotta do three months of this before i can stop me university calls and that was when i said oh well that's interesting and he some questions and then he he got me to do some tests and we spike a little bit and that was when he turned around and said why didn't you just tell us should dyslexic you know and i'm not really know exactly what he's so you know there's no google at this point to look up these things when someone this is something you don't know about and and and so that was really the first time and a nice guy may some opportunity to do a bit of research myself through the university library as well as some pretty simple techniques and and at night time computers you know we take it all so so much for granted now but the program would st-.

Unfortunately can become invasive. Scrubber will you've mentioned climate change on just curious. And I imagine that loan pub in Madeira is that something that you would talk about with other cattle ranchers, would you talk about climate change? Or would it just would you be focusing more on just the drought? You've always been dealing with drought.

Just maybe just one example of just on the ground example of adaptation planning, I don't know if it's an indigenous population, or maybe tourism example, but here is some adaptation happening on the coast or something like that. Do you do have something that you could kind of explain probably the the clearest example is in tar strike way. The wep there has been. Really, very impressive.

Another company went up six percent, green organic Dutchman. Apparently that's the company as well up six percent. So I think one, what the shows I mean, we don't know if this is gonna come to anything. We didn't know whether code is going to go ahead with this, but we know that they recently bought Costa coffee, a UK coffee company for four billion pounds. Almost it shows a that coke is trying to shift out of its traditional fizzy drinks market into into other markets and be that seems likely if cannabis's Neagh laws in in more places like seeing many states in the United States, we've seen Canada, for instance, what's what's going to happen is, is that going to be a big company is going to go into this. Market there will see previously was was a bit sort of molecule, and then this does suggest. And I think this is why why the interest in this the the that will be what's likely to happen because it could become a very big business because of course they were used to build those rumors about cocaine, various kind of drug based back in individual Victorian when it was originally, I think marketed as a sort of a tonic for your health.

So the headline in the guardian here I'm played for strawberry sabotage warning spreads to all six Australian states. Now. Now, this seems to be bizarre situation in Australia. When needles have been found in strawberries and with this is what the Queensland strawberry regrows association said. It started as a single active, what they're calling commercial terrorism and saying MRs, brutal multi-million dollar industry to its knees. So now in New Zealand who said that taking Australian strawberries off the shelves, consumers found needles in their strawberries, and there have been reports of people, you know biting into a strawberry and finding a sewing needle inside what they don't know is how this has happened in more than one place. You wouldn't think a strange. One thing. The seems to have happened all around Australia, but what they don't know what police in the government don't know is all people just hearing reports of needles in strawberries, and then starting to do the same thing which is just it was c- vocals, my mind that someone would hear a story like that and then think that that was something. That you might do. And there are reports in some of the fears. A copycat incidents increased yesterday after a sixty. Two year old woman was putting a needle into a banana in central Queensland is just is, is a really, really strange. I mean, you know, there is a slight suppose you start to worry. Is there a danger in reporting stories like this? Because I'm sure Monaco listeners a foam will sensible will not go and do silly things like this, but you just think how strange is it? The people would hear a story like that and then want to start coping. And the advice is a close chop before before you Trump.
