According to the Red Cross. More than two million people in the region were affected by floods and landslides caused by the hurricane. Then this week, another hurricane Hurricane iota made landfall in Central America delivering yet another blow to the region. The two storms back to back aren't only devastating to communities in Central America, but are also complicating efforts to mitigate covert 19. Joining us now to talk about what's happening on the ground is Jeff EARNS two freelance journalist based in Honduras. Jeff Thanks for being with us For having me. So what are conditions on the ground in Honduras right now? Right now. Much of Honduras is underwater, particularly in the Northwest Sula Valley region, which is home to about two million people, and it's really the economic motor. Of the country, So the fact that so much of this area in particular is underwater is really indicative of how damaging it is. Given that roughly 40% of the GDP or more is produced in this region, but really after iota we have much more widespread damage. A lot across the whole country was a much larger storm. So just particular across the North Coast and and the West, there's still rising waters in some parts. We've lost a lot of bridges and roads and other infrastructure. There's many people are currently displaced by the flooding. The storm's first struck Nicaragua before going through Honduras and Guatemala. What were the effects in those two countries? With a to it was damaging. But it went through a pretty lowly populated area of Nicaragua. But iota was so much larger. That it really hit harder in Nicaragua, and even the winds were harder to sew. In Nicaragua. We're seeing pretty widespread damage flooding even in the capital, Managua. And south of it to Nicaragua's pretty devastated this 0.2. You've been reporting on this region in Honduras for awhile have how have the government's responded to efforts on the ground? The government's response has been heavily criticized ahead of eight actually scheduled this special holiday for that week week in in order order to to try try to to Remote Remote domestic domestic tourism tourism and and stimulate stimulate the the economy, economy, which which has has been been really really hit hit hard hard by by the the cove cove in in 19 19 pandemic, and there was a clear reticence by the government to Cancel that vacation, so they did not emit alerts or or evacuation orders, which led Tens of thousands of people in completely caught off guard being and then ended up getting trapped on the roof, some for as many as five days. And, of course, That led to two more deaths, which we really don't know how much yet because the water Has never been able to fully received from eight to before We got hit by iota, so there's really clear negligence by the government here and then in terms of responding They're completely overwhelmed by it. And they clearly unprepared and there's a real question of how they're spending. Their resource is the government just a year ago. Just from Israel. This Folks from war and yet their emergency response unit doesn't have the boats necessary to go to the healthy, strong currents that was seen from the footing in order to rescue people. Until the water gets down. The people are very upset, definitely more than ever with with the government and this could definitely lead to even more political instability than we've seen down here in the past and that political instability Could also sperm or migration out of the region. Is that right? Coming towards where? There That's the United States are moving towards Mexico or other places this people try to survive. Absolutely. There's already people organizing on social media caravans that looks like they're planning for January, most of them whether or not that materializes. There's just no doubt we're going to see it another tick in migration over the next year, particularly As Kobe 19 travel Strick Shins are eased. I took so many people already. Particularly the young people who just see no opportunity. They have no work, and now they've lost everything. They really have nothing to lose, and they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help their families to rebuild and and recoup everything they've lost. United States government has limited at least one of the Trump administration migration from many of these countries. At the same time, it's asked many Central American countries to help it with its asylum policies. Has the U. S government sent any aid? To these countries as they struggled to deal with the blows from these hurricanes. The lack of leadership from the U. S. Following this crisis is really Shocking. There's been no word from the State Department or from the White House, other than U S aid, which is down here most recently after Iota they designated $17 million to the region. Half of which is going to Honduras and then Also the U. S. Military, based on here has been a source of rescue missions, which has definitely been very helpful. But $17 million We're talking about billions and billions of dollars in damage. And really in 1998 when Hurricane Mitch hit, which is the worst natural disaster in center America To date, it was US leadership that mobilized support from the global community. And that is completely lacking at this point. President elect Biden has expressed his concern and support for the region, so there's hope that when he takes office He will take up that traditional leadership role of the U. S. To help one of its neighbors will be watching to see how this pans out. Jeff earns two freelance reporter based in Honduras. Thanks for being with us and stay safe. Thanks for having me

The Practice of Shipping Creative Work with Seth Godin

"Okay I got a question when you think about the word creative. What's that word mean to? You feel like a lot of business owners if you're like me, you know a creative person that. You hire design things to make things look pretty to work on your brand. But here's the thing. If you're a business owner. You gotta think about creativity broader than just that. In fact, I'm going to tell you if you want to build a p performing company. You. have to be creative. From the Ramsey network, this is the entreleadership podcast where we business leaders grow themselves to their teams and the prophets. I'm your host, Daniel Tardy. Am I guess today is Seth Godin guys are you kidding me seth is one of the most brilliant marketers thinkers thought leaders on the topics of well a lot of things leadership business certainly all things customer service and guys I'm telling you even if you think you're not creative. You've got to listen to this because creativity. It's not just something that you do where you're creating things that are visual are designing things being creative as a leader means you have a vision for the future you see what could be and what should be, and then you create that reality that's why it's called creativity. And you do that through casting a vision and showing people a better version of the future creativity isn't just about designing things guys it's about leadership. Let's. Differentiate between leadership and management. 'cause they're not the same thing and most small business people just do management management is having the power to tell people what to do to get people to do what they did yesterday but faster and cheaper, and we need management because that creates the industrial economy that enables us to make and keep promises. But leadership leadership is not mandatory. Leadership is voluntary. Leadership is I choose to lead where I choose to follow you and because voluntary because we're doing something that might not work it's not for everybody but it's where all the juice lies because when we lean into leadership. When we assert to people that we think something might work. We might feel inside like we're not so sure but we're offering this tremendous. Privilege this gift to the people we work with, which is they're hoping that someone will open a door in China light. That's our job all throughout building the entreleadership area I was I was the first employee of entreleadership. We don't call ourselves employees. We say where team members, we don't like the connotation of employees because it implies punching a clock and exchanging dollars. For hours as the first team member in this area believing in this thing believing it could be this massive thing that's making an impact in the area of small business. I know I can relate to times that I I had a massive vision and desire but I wasn't sure how we're going to get there. I didn't know for sure that we would get there. Yet I was telling people were going here and and there's this higher docs in our minds. A little bit of we're really clear and certain we're going and I don't know if we're going to get there and you can feel a bit like a fraud at times. You can feel like I'm making this thing up why are these people even following me? Yeah. Imposter Syndrome rears its ugly head. A lot of people think that they're the only ones with imposter syndrome but everyone has it unless you're psychopath imposter syndrome is that feeling that you haven't proven it that you can't be sure you to do to speak up and to lead you must be a fraud at people say, how do I get rid of imposter syndrome? and. My answer is you don't 'cause you are an impostor in the moment you are leading in the moment you show up and say over here, you can't be sure. And if you feel like an impostor, that's a good sign because it means you're leaning into the work and so I am not proposing that we defraud anybody. I'm not proposing that we guarantee anything 'cause a guaranteeing confidence are tricky places the Hind but I think we get to say to people i. let me paint a picture for where we might be able to go if we're able to make this thing working and if people like that picture and they're willing to follow in meet with you. That's the best way to get to where you hope to go. I think tracking with this idea of we're always an impostor to some extent, and yet there's also a wisdom and having a sense of what we're doing. So we don't lead people off the cliff what's the difference between being foolish and the perpetual imposture and the way you're talking about? Yes so that all of this comes down to generosity. I rule no one wants to be hustled. No one wakes up in the mornings. Hopes own hustles me uses social pressure close talking. Extortion, whatever it is to get me to do something. No we don't have to hustle to make a difference. The alternative is to say, what's The generous thing to do you know if you saw somebody drowning in a few feet of water and you had a chance to jump in and Save Them? Even. If you weren't the best swimmer who ever lived even if you didn't have a certification from the Red Cross, which do it what would you walk away a say? I can't prove I can see ask you this person. That's great. You jump in the water.

Over a century ago, masks were controversial during the 1918 flu pandemic

"CBS News is Anthony Mason took a look back recently at the way masks were handled more than a century ago. That, of course, during the 2018 flu pandemic, also in the fall and found many similarities to today. Fascinating look from Anthony. In the fall of 1918. As Americans across the country were celebrating victory in World War, One of the masks on returning troops showed we were losing another war against the so called Spanish flu even a century ago, masks were controversial. Yes, And for so many of the same reasons they are today. Nancy Toms is a history professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook at its worst in 1918. How bad did the pandemic get really, really bad? He referred to it as the Big one among historians of medicine. 675,000 Americans would die nearly a third of them in a single month. The Red Cross spread the slogan Where a mask Save your Life. And nurses began to make them for the public way. We're looking at two masks God's masks that were used in the 1918 pandemic. Here in California, there in the collection of the Oakland Museum, Erin Dina Delgaudio is associate curator. That pretty transparent, right? It wasn't an ideal material, but it was definitely better than not wearing anything. Back in 1918. This was one of the centers in the fight against the pandemic. Yes, indeed. This is Henry Street settlement and its founder, Lillian Walk, played a critical role in organizing the pandemic response in New York City masks were never officially mandated on the East Coast, Nancy Tom says. But other health rules were often aggressively enforced. There were spitting raids, even though by Pelo Yes, there was a definite effort to up the ante in prosecuting. They called them sanitary infractions. The US outbreak had started on a Kansas Army base on the campaign to stop it. Was tied to the war effort. So wearing a mask became a patriotic just Yes. If you refused to wear a mask, you could be called a slacker. What did that mean? A slacker was not quite like a traitor. But it was someone who was dragging their patriotic feet. San Francisco was the first city to actually mandate masks. Yes. 10% of the population was infected between 1918 and 1919. In just a day, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. 100 people were charged with disturbing the peace or failing toe wear masks. Their sentence. 10 days in prison or a $5 fine about $80 today, and then here in San Francisco, there was an anti mask league that farmed in early January. So the chairman was this woman named Mrs Harrington. She was a suffragist. She was a lawyer. He put out a call in the the San San Francisco Francisco Chronicle Chronicle asking asking for for her her fellow fellow citizens citizens who who objected objected to to this this mass mass mandate mandate as as Really Really similar similar to to the the arguments arguments now. now. Actually, Actually, they they argue the ordinance was unconstitutional and that masks had not been proven effective. Some 2000 people turned out for a rally at the Dreamland skate rink. Other cities would mandate masks, including Denver, Seattle, Oakland, Sacramento and Phoenix. They were met with resistance to one major difference. It wasn't political. Then they're wass disagreement between the various politicians about which businesses should get closed down. But The decision to mask or not to mass never became identified with a specific political party.

Armenia, Azerbaijan accuse each other of violating ceasefire

"Fragile ceasefire has gone into effect in Nagorno Karabakh region disputed by the former Soviet Republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia. NPR's Lucy and Kim reports from Moscow that both sides already accusing each other of violating the cease fire. Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated talks in Moscow between the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan. After more than 10 hours of negotiations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov appeared before reporters questions over the opponent. He announced a cease fire to allow the warring parties to collect the bodies of soldiers and exchange prisoners. Lavrov said more substantive talks under the auspices of Russia, the U. S and France would follow. Fierce fighting broke out in the garden car back, which saw bloody war in the early 19 nineties that left ethnic Armenians in charge of the region. Azerbaijan is now vowing to take it back. Lucien Kim. NPR News. Moscow Sir by Johns for a minister said today that the cease fire would only last for as long as it takes the Red Cross to arrange for the exchange of the debt.

Armenia, Azerbaijan agree on cease-fire

"Over 10 hours of talks and then a breakthrough. The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced that Azerbaijan and Armenia had agreed to a ceasefire in the ongoing conflict over the disputed region of Nagorno Carol Bock. After lengthy negotiations between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. The parties have agreed on the following steps first a ceasefire is announced to be declared from midday on October 10th 2020 for humanitarian purposes. The exchange of prisoners of war on other contained persons on the bodies of the dead, mediated and in accordance with the criteria of the International Committee of the Red Cross. Talks between the foreign ministers of the two countries in Moscow. REMEDIATED by Mr Lavrov more than 300 people have died and thousands have been displaced since the latest violence broke out nearly two weeks ago. You gonna carry back lies with another by John, but it's inhabited mainly by ethnic Armenians. Ostrovsky is a senior fellow in the Russia and Eurasia program at the foreign policy think tank, The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D. C. I think this is a cease fire is important. It is not necessarily a game changer. But we've seen some of the worst fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the last almost 30 years over the last two weeks on DH, the fighting has been really kind of brutal on both sides with large civilian casualties, any sort of small ceasefire, humanitarian ceasefire. Er that will pause. The conflict allowed people to pick up the dead and I think it's important, but there still is a long way to go to resolve this conflict. And I would say that it no. It took almost half a day to get the sides to agree to this and the sentiment in both Armenian Azerbaijan has really hardened, so this is very much probably a temporary cease as opposed to a really long term solution. You describe the the fighting in the past two weeks as brutal? How does it differ from from fighting that we've seen before between the two sides? We've seen, you know the use of drones, the use of really sort of much more modern equipment and the targeting of civilian populations on both sides. Eso we've seen, you know, I think at least 300. The casualties have been reported on the Armenian side. The Azerbaijani side hasn't been as clear on the numbers, but I expect it's equally as high and in just two weeks of fighting. That's a fairly high high number. But I think that the brutality against the civilian populations but has been deeply worrying. Mr Lavrov also said that Azerbaijan and Armenia had agreed to start talks on the settlement of the conflict. Will they be able to agree to a more permanent solution? I would hope At some point they will be able to agree, but they've been in talks to do that. Since 1994 the populations have sort of viewed this latest round of fighting a sort of existential fight for their nation's on DSO. I think that will make it quite difficult to get a Ah long term solution any time soon. Until you sort of check. Try to change those mindsets, which I think is gonna be quite difficult. Particularly if either one of these leaders is perceived as being a little bit weak on this Nagorno car back issue. I think this is an enormous potential implications for sort of domestic stability in both countries, and what role does Russia play In all of this? What pressures was Russia able to bring to bear on Azerbaijan and Armenia? Russia is normally able to summon its neighbors on get them to stop fighting. It wants to do that, but I think Russia had much more difficulty in this. I think Russian Azerbaijani relations have deteriorated a little bit and turkeys insertion on behalf of Azerbaijan certainly made this more complicated. Is a fighting certainly, and brutality and sort of the greater international awareness on DH. The pressure, not just from Russia but from the West is well that has increased over the last several days. I think that certainly did increase the pressure on both sides. Paul Stransky. Let's hear more from our guests to get their thoughts on these developments. Henry Chiu, professor Stransky doesn't sound optimistic about the prospects for long term peace. Do you share his skepticism? Well, I think if you look at the comments from the leaders of both Azerbaijan and Armenia there fairly adamant about the territory being belonging to their respective countries, and it doesn't look like there. Other side is really willing to give an inch on that. And unfortunately for you gonna carry a box, you know what happens with a lot of these small territories is that they become palms for larger conflicts or larger face offs. And so the professor talked about Russia and Turkey well these air to powers that are also having confrontations in Syria and also In Libya. So unfortunately, this area, which is a resource rich area, it's a strategic corridor is also going to be playing out in an arena that's larger than just itself. Actually, What do you

California Firefighters Battle Nearly 2 Dozen Major Wildfires

"Wildfires have now burned more than four million acres this year, and Sarah Husseini OFC reports that's more than double the previous record for an entire year. More than 16,000. Firefighters are still battling nearly two dozen major blazes throughout the state with a couple months of fall fire season still ahead. In Northern California is wine country More than 52,000 people have been evacuated as a result of the glass fire. Among them are the Henson's who have set up a borrowed RV for themselves and their three dogs outside an evacuation center in Santa Rosa. We've been evacuated three out of four years, Jessica Hansen says. This time they had no warning. She says she realised the worst was coming. When she walked out of her house on the seven acres atop the mountain. They call home and saw fire climbing from both sides as soon as we got to the top of our driveway We knew we were going to her house. But abandoning the land her family has lived on for generations is unthinkable. Henson says she's already focused on rebuilding despite not having any homeowner's insurance. Husband, Alton Henson says they'll have to rely on the federal Emergency Management Agency and groups like the Red Cross. All right now we're registered with FEMA and all then and apparently they're supposed to give us Temporary housing or they'll put trailers on our property until we re building. We're just waiting for that, but they can't do nothing in tow were considered disaster. Last week, Governor Gavin Newsom asked the Trump administration to declare the latest blazes, including the glass fire, a major disaster. Meanwhile, the weather is starting to cooperate with weary fire crews in the form of calmer winds, cooler temperatures and clear skies over the weekend, which allowed aircraft to fly over the steep and rugged terrain and make some big gains. Cal Fire spokesman Erikmenendez his office in ST Halina is located not far from where the blaze began. I can tell you that, looking out my window for the past week. I haven't seen the beautiful mountains that were known for, so it's very refreshing to see the mountains again. At a community briefing Sunday, Cal Fire incident chief Sean Norman was cautiously optimistic. We're feeling good about her lines were not done with this fire, yet it's been a stubborn fire. We don't consider the fire contained or controlled. It'll be weeks before we get to that benchmark. But that does not mean that we feel an imminent threat to any specific community Officials say they're hand picking local firefighters or those with previous experience in problem areas to help keep it that way.

UN General Assembly: US-China tensions flare over coronavirus

"Pandemic is a test of international cooperation. One, the U.

The secretary general is trying to use this virtual General Assembly to get countries to work together to fight the pandemic and many other global challenges. But one Security Council debate showed just how hard this will be. You know shame on each of you. I am astonish, and I'm disgusted. That's the U. S ambassador to the U. N. Kelly Craft accusing her colleagues, though not naming, which ones of playing politics with covert 19 members of the council who took this opportunity to focus on political grudges rather than the critical issue at hand. My goodness Craft defended the Trump administration's decision to pull out of the World Health Organization and said China should be held to account for quote, unleashing this plague onto the world. China's Ambassador John Joon, says the US is just trying to blame others for its own failings. The United the States has been spread in political virus on this information. And for 18 confrontation on division. Up to that point, it had been a rather dry Security Council meeting about global governance in the wake of covert 19. There was a lot of talk about multilateralism and a few veiled swipes at the Trump Administration's America first approach, Kraft said. The U. S has given you n agencies $900 million to counter the pandemic and compared that to others on the Security Council. NYU's year 4.6 million South Africa 8.4 million Indonesia five million. The US does give more to the U. N than other, says Richard Gallon of the International Crisis Group. But this is not just about money. Foreign diplomats had grown accustomed to trump attacking. Yuen arrangements like the Paris climate deal on mechanisms like the Human Rights Council. But they were genuinely shocked the Washington would walk away from the W. H O during a global pandemic. Speaking via Skype, he said diplomats are worried about what he calls a nasty fight between the US and China as Beijing tries to increase its influence in the world body on a day to day basis, Chinese diplomats in New York are often Very assertive, increasingly hard line and sometimes bullying colleagues from smaller countries. The reality is that for most members of the U.

She's raising the alarms about the forgotten conflicts from Yemen to this, the hell region of Africa has a triple threat of climate conflict and called it mansions. And for that they need to be a collective approach. The U.

the rest of the world I'm glad you brought up goodness which was the name of that original skill because I think it was the first multi-modal skill using Lexis Yep because we went to the web was really innovative I actually still intimated to this day there's probably some interesting things channel switching to okay thank you Josh Ryan Matthews I've known each other for a couple of years Ryan's with Royal Bank of Canada why don't you introduce yourself often tell everybody about what you've been doing along the lines of voice perfect okay my name's Ryan Mathews head of the voice loud for Royal Bank of Canada it's funny last year when I came down to this conference my name Tiger and I'd be introduced last salt and saying hey I'm from NBC and they just look at me like what's rb see so this have we'll make of Canada on my on my name tag so we similarly to Joshua RBC's one hundred fifty year old financial institution We've got sixteen million finds across thirty six countries five thousand employees were Canada's biggest bank one of the largest world by market cap I I've got a long history markets in my voice writing in Lagos in that space for a little while but it was also really involved in grassroots innovation from that department when I had the opportunity to kind of come over to more the enterprise side of the bank and have an opportunity to kind of forum a voice can jump at the opportunity so I've been building my team over the last eight to ten Johnson there in the crowd over there you can wave high and it's been a really exciting getting getting and building this high performing team in a space that quite frankly is insure me okay thank you Ryan actually you didn't say what you've been doing voice like do you WanNa talk about your project so couple of things that hoppy kind of be Party Organization for we were first in Canada launch a voice by mentioned all center also I into Canada to launch payments five Oyster Siri some of the work that might have been working on can't talk laudable because it's not yet released unfortunately but it is coming out in a couple of months definitely stay tuned for that but we are looking at a multi modal world device agnostic world and it's not it's going to be a little bit more than just an action or skill because recognizing that the market has moved quite a bit to be competitive in this space deliver something really cool and innovative thanks okay right we've just met recently last few weeks so this is great and I'm learning every time I talked to you why don't you share with the audience a little bit more about American Red Cross because very very large organization obviously Taylor yeah you have a slightly different set of needs and expectations goals around the space yeah absolutely so I come from the innovation aimed at the American Red Cross Chopin's who's heard of the Red Cross everyone writes we have a very wide scope to our mission it's very diverse we have you know blood donation disaster response and I think that's what most folks think of when I think the Red Cross the Pink Oh the folks that go in for superstorm Sandy Hurricane Katrina nine eleven etc and that is very the what we do training services things like CPR training first aid training etc service to the armed forces so I could go on the purpose that'd be animation team at the Red Cross is to leverage disruptions in the market from investments and technology and use that to drive forward our humanitarian mission so our innovation function is not dissimilar to what you would see in fortune one hundred fortune five hundred companies but we are unique and that the bottom line of what we're doing is humanitarian focus in addition to opportunities for revenue generation or cost savings etc.. What I'm doing as part of that innovation team running the conversation L. A. I practice so any sort of interphase conversation between artificial brain and human brain as within the scope of this practice not just boys chat bots all flavors of chat bots your skills and your actions? VR is very big for us and then further down our road map you'll see some things happening with mobile so Syrian the as well as far as what we've done invoice already as part of this practice the innovation is team is young it's only about a year year and a half old and in that time we launched three skills to them are going to be published as action soon so that's something that you all can look forward to seeing from Red Cross and the next coming weeks those use cases are blood donation first aid and disaster response so we're really excited to see those grown interested want really excited to tell me what those skills do right so if if I were to say banking skill maybe I'd be able to look up my bank account I know exactly what that is but blood donation skill what is that sure so for our blood donation skill most folks again when I think of Red Cross disaster relief or nurses I took a CPR training with them upon a time the core of our business of our bottom line is driven by let donations so our blood donations skill helps acilitator the scheduling of those nations so the conversion that we're looking at as a potential donor into donor right how do we get you from the place where you are thinking about it the two scheduled nation and follow up with rescheduling from there and it's a very simple conversion path very simple funnel but there's a component to that on top of it I think makes it very interesting if you were compelled to donate blood it's not that difficult to find your way to a blood drive right it's like scheduling doctor's appointment you know you need to go the doctor schedule The payments but most folks are potential donors think that they're ineligible right you travel you get a tattoo maybe you had the flu a couple of weeks ago you think of why can't give blood and the majority of those cases you can get so there's a bit of a conversation that we built into that to help rake through that talk about eligibility so we can again push for that conversion rates and I'm really excited about the skill not that I play favorites necessarily but it is one of my favorites because we're having Ford the mission with the skill but also increasing revenue and.

But the speed of these fires and the being spread by fifty mile an hour. Winds has outpaced the disaster relief response. So everybody's going to have to help. Once again, it's going to be time for each of us to go to our phones and text a little bit of money to the Red Cross the Red Cross can help these people in the initial disaster preparedness, and I will say California for all the things that we say California does not do. Well. You know, you can talk about the DMV you can talk about the. The Medicaid program. You can talk about all sorts of things that California does really poorly as the government structure, but one thing we know how to do here because of fire.
