The Creativity Conference, with Maxim Jago
"All right maximum. Welcome to the podcast. I'm i'm excited. Chat with you about the conference in particular but also some of the things that you're also involved in the kind of lead you to want to start a conference. Let's start there. Let's start with a little bit of background on you. Know just sort of who maximum jego is and the kind of things that you do and what keeps you sort of interested in engaging in this crazy world of tech that we have going on my word. Well thank you. Thank you for having me first of all of course that's an i. I usually say that. I've been pretending. I know what i'm talking about since the mid eighties and And sometimes in the us because the accident people believe me so been pretending to be understanding things and all these people about things you know. When i was really young. I just became a fan of existence. I wanted to know how everything would. I wanted to understand that. Not because i particularly wanted to change it just because i appreciate it and it turns out that would everything you know when you're a kid you think. Well i know that tea and coffee at different things. Therefore i know the universe but then as you get older you realize oh wait. There's a universe of things out there. And so i become a life long lover of learning and every opportunity. I get to understand something and how it works. I take it along the way. I started to detect Some patterns that emerge and Some some trends some trends in the world thinking is some trends in the way people some trends in important things to to bring it back around to the conference Some trends and creativity and i'll be doing in our In our keynote the opening of the conference that a creativity and intrinsic quality of the human experience that you don't learn it cannot be told you because it's already there like breathing and as long as you ought changing and causing change you are creative and so once you start with that you realize wow everybody's trying to express themselves will try to coastal agents. They will want to cost shadow. Have their place under the sun footprints in the snow. We all want our existence to mean something and one of the ways that you existence can be meaningful is by having impact and so when we. When i was thinking about the creativity conference the goal originally was to was to create a kind of meeting of minds. And if you'll forgive me taking up the time with the story there's a please do. There's a beautiful concept that was explained to me years ago and i don't claim to have any connection with the tradition But i was told that in the native american tradition. The culture is largely shamanic. Shamanism is rooted in a siberian fire. Religion ancient siberian fire religion. But ultimately suppose you'd say that it's It's a religion that focuses on nature with a capital n so there is a small end nature which trees and bushes in that kind of thing. And then there's capital nature where which is closer to the concept of aptness. But there's a right way to do things that's appropriate under the circumstances and of course it's natural with a capital n us as a species spend time in nature with a small pen. But i'm going off topic so the when when Native american shaman is holding a very large ceremony. There may actually be to shaman the perform the ceremony and the first is the one who performs the ceremony they speak the words. They perform the ritualized aspects of the ceremony. The second shaman will be that to hold the space. It creates an environment in which that's a good work done. Whatever it is. And so. When i had this idea for the creativity conference originally it was intended to be held in reykjavik in iceland on the concept is simple. We get cool people together. Who are passionate about really being alive really participating in this thing called life and give them an opportunity to share ideas and connect and so i described it as a meeting of minds and my goal was never to be a speaker. I was never going to be if you forgive the parallel the shaman holding the actual ceremony. I wanted to be the one holding the space so my goal was to create an environment where everyone felt safe and included and welcome and it was meant to be kind of campfire chat where people say one person says the other person. Oh you do that amazing thing. Don't you tell me about that. Amazing thing the second person would say. Oh well thank you for asking. Actually is the essence of his the heart of the matter. Let me tell you how it really works. And in that safe environment people would learn and grow and connect. I hope and develop projects together and be more impactful in the world and healthier and happier more whole and i think ultimately creativity is about self realization. Our goal is to take whatever is the essence of you in the world. Whatever is truly you not the nurture the nature if you believe that people have a soul soul if you believe that it's the id and the ego and the superego. It's that that ina part of you. The observer that has no opinions and is simply experiencing an existential is. They would call it a passenger but whatever that being is i think. Creativity is an opportunity for that being to to manifest itself in the world

Politicians, Vigds Finnbogadttir
"Meet Iceland's Fourth President Vigdis. Finnbogadottir. Victis was born into a wealthy family on April. Fifteenth Nineteen Thirty Vic the capital of Iceland. Her father was a civil engineer and a professor at the University of Iceland. Her mother was chair of the Icelandic Nurses Association for over three decades. Education and travel were highly valued invictus his family. Both of her parents studied in Europe before this was born and they often told tales of their travels. After graduating from junior college wreck you back in nineteen, forty, nine fifty has got the opportunity to travel through Europe and to pursue her many areas of academic interest. She studied French and took courses on literature and drama in Paris. She.

She taught French drama and theater history at the University of Iceland for breaking away to develop the French department at a selective experimental school in the city. Also participated in many projects that brought her into the public eye. She taught French. Television example and later hosted programs about drama. During summers she gave official tours of the country for journalists and writers hoping to gather research material. In the nineteen seventies, victis also served as the director of the Reykjavik Peter Company. All of the public facing work helped grow popularity and name recognition. In addition to all the other things she had going on figures also adopted a daughter in nineteen, seventy two and raised her as a single mother. All while acting as a cultural ambassador for country. Just. remained relatively a political at first. I some experienced some turbulent politics including housing shortages in the sixties, an ongoing conflict between integrationist and isolationist political ideologies. This is early detachment from politics came in handy when she ran as a candidate for president in nineteen eighty. When asked is it fair to say that that you should be elected for being a woman fixes responded? No I shouldn't be elected because I'm a woman I should be elected because I am a human. She secured a narrow victory against three other opponents all men. Her focus on the cultural identity and history of the country rather than more polarizing issues served her well in the race. Just like that big became the first democratically elected woman president. The Icelandic constitution grants, the president only ceremonial power while the prime minister takes more typical leadership role. Still. took an active role in the development of her country both at home and abroad. She spent time advocating for reforestation.

Thickness made history by becoming the first woman president, a glass ceiling she broke surprisingly and depressingly recently. Thickness encouraged women never to settle for less. She said get educated never accept shorter education than your brothers.
Large antibody study offers hope for virus vaccine efforts
"Studies offers hope for the development of a corona virus vaccine. Maybe my Gracia reports a new study from Iceland finds antibodies developed after Contracting Cove in 19 can last up to four months after diagnosis. A study was done by Reykjavik based Decode Genetics, a subsidiary of US biotech company Amgen. More than 30,000 people were tested in Iceland, making it the most extensive study to date on the immune system's response to the virus. Over time, scientists from Harvard University of the U. S.

No country for face masks: Nordics brush off mouth covers
"The AFP. Nordics brushoff mouth covers Stockholm as most of the world either orders or recommends the use of facemask swith even US President Donald Trump, seen one nordic nations are remaining hold-outs in supermarkets on buses along with the streets of capitals, such a Stockholm Copenhagen Oslo Helsinki, and Reykjavik. That's the Nordic nations. Face masks are a rare sight worn only by a small minority many of whom are tourists according to a recent survey by YouGov only five to ten percent of respondents in Nordic countries said they used masks in public settings figure that has remained stable since the start of the crisis in March. and. Yeah I. Mean You know I I think that what I would like to see as we walk out of this as masks for. Sort of for people who want to wear them specifically for people who? Aren't feeling really super great that day maybe maybe today's good data wear a mask and not fill the era with whatever you've gotten sometimes, I don't feel good when you get up I. would certainly be railing against the idea if if someone was like, no, we as the government have decided that we need to have heard immunity as quickly as possible. Therefore, we are forbidding masks offer bidding people to wear them or for them to be made or for them to be distributed I, would be railing against that kind of also be a non issue for sick people if it was the social norm that you don't have to go places when you're sick, right I think that that's Know the first thing is that we have to get rid of whatever that idea was. That was going on in the parents of in the ideas of the heads of my parents when I was a kid. Came from a family admittedly, you know the sort of Lutheran Calvin est kind of cut from that cloth where. You could stand you went to work. Suffering is good for your soul that kind of thing, and I got at least half of the Times throughout the thirteen years that I went to school perfect attendance. They'll that is is a declaration that I made people ill. I mean. You there shouldn't be an award for perfect attendance at school. What that says is that you've made poor choices to my mind. So does your parents have made poor choices because they're not talking about college talking about underage people understood but I, and again I'm not an opposing to hang. You know anybody for this. I'm just saying, Hey, we need to stop and think about this. 'cause only recently in the relatively recent past the last couple of decades or something have I heard people talking about you shouldn't go to work or school if you're sick. Actually. I was hearing the opposite when I was young. And so let's go on. That's a move in the right direction. At the same time, the corresponding figures have risen between seventy and eighty percent for most of the other twenty, eight polled including India and the United. States. So that's people wearing masks. Going up to seventy and eighty percent. I have the impression that if the government doesn't say clearly, we advise you to wear a mask nobody will twenty one year old French. Student Camille four to know of Fortuna Rowley told the F. adding that she was shocked to see how rare masks were in Stockholm. Bridget Y DEL sixty three year old pensioner told AFP that she would have preferred if Sweden's authorities recommended masks at least on public transport, but she added that she would keep going without one unless there was a shift in official policy not only she wants you to take care of her health. She doesn't have a car as an adult and she also doesn't intend to where mask until everybody else does. So. I found a couple of graphs which are not exactly easy to talk about verbally but I mean, tell me what you when you look at the graph tell me what you think of. Here's. So this is a daily new confirmed Kovic nineteen deaths and I think the the confirmed part is a very interesting thing because you can think this was covid nineteen you can say it but like to confirm it is a little more solid Canada Okay So you've got the line for America which okay. It shoots up at the beginning and starts to round off a bit and then just sort of goes over to the right and wavers a bit and doesn't really fall that that that low. Now you've got Sweden which it goes up and then it tapers down and down and down, and then it just crashes at the end. So at the very end we're pretty much where we started and they're zero. Like, they're down to zero confirmed covid nineteen deaths now, and this is the country that had the least amount of government regulations and requirements. They're like, Hey, here's what we advise be smart about this be considerate. Fair what is the age. Difference though. The. Democrat shoulder. Oh Yeah. There's a lot of old people in Sweden. So here are the White Gal sixty, nine years old says if they don't if they don't I will not wear it because nobody else does. Martin Spoil Wrong fifty year old businessman said that he would follow government recommendations. If they tell us, we don't need masks we don't wear them. Sweden has received global attention for softer approach to curbing the spread of the virus which coupled with relatively higher death toll has led to the region's largest country being shunned by its neighbors, but when it comes historically about minding their business. But when it comes to masks, the Northeast Nordic nations look staunchly united. So except for Sweden, there are a few cases in those countries KK Chang Epidemiologist University of Birmingham since two for applied health research told AF pay. So I don't blame them for not doing it as long as they have reasonable social distancing and contact tracing has been done properly. Was We to do that? Asked Tuesday what long as you're being spied on I'm okay with it. Yeah. what might change his mind on recommending the use of facemask. Sweden's chief epidemiologist Anders Tangle said that he's still waiting for some of the proof that they're -FFECTIVE So what a novel concept? Portraying some logic questionable I. think it's wrong a responsible and it's stubborn. The epidemiologists said if he's wrong, it cost life. If I'm wrong. What harm does it do? The epidemiologists says there's no harm to wearing masks so we should all wear them I'm not entirely sure that that's true. And I mean. Okay. So there's there's the direct physical health oriented harm that he's talking about. Okay. Well, we've we've discussed some of the issues with that. You've got your mask mouth you've got one of the things that bothers the most bothers me the most is not seeing people's faces actually really bad for your immune system epidemiologist should know bacteria grows in wet damp dark places you would think well, right now they're looking to covert and they're not looking at much else. They're certainly not looking at dental issues and even just looking at cove it. Okay. Let's let's assume. That nothing else exists this is the only thing that means any of our attention. Okay. Viruses need cells to procreate. That's what they are. That's how they work. Now, if you have a multicellular organism, it has defenses it has t cells that will attack the virus and will attack cells that have been infected with the virus. So what what it wants is bacteria to eat that's that's what it means. It means defenseless little single celled organisms so that it can get in procreate and explode. That's what they do. So if you make more bacteria if you well, if you create this environmentally. Rich you will get a lot of viruses I get the idea but wouldn't we be seeing more many more cases and deaths and all these sorts of things going on in countries where mass compliance is significantly higher if that's the case no ours covert isn't. Necessarily, because Kobe isn't all that deadly except to people who are already very fragile.
Locked Down in Switzerland and Belgium
"Start with Stephen mcfeely he operates being be on Ireland's dingle peninsula in just before the pandemic head Stephen an interest in the hotel Oberland in October and Switzerland that's where he's had to ride out the first few months of the global lockdown good and. My goodness. My Irish friend is learning Spitzer dykes. Good here in the Alps where I've been for four months. Now in splendid isolation, my plan originally was just to come for February and March, but I've I'm still here right well, what does the vibe in Switzerland right now there's a positive vibe. The society is reopening. Tourism travel has started again just no we're on the same level as it was before we had two weekends where there was crazy crowds here huge big crowds from all over Switzerland everybody who was here was from Switzerland or had to be from Switzerland. They weren't necessarily all Swiss because there's lots of international people living in Geneva and Derek and whatnot but everybody from within the barger of Switzerland over with crowds, and then it just died and Monday to. Friday went back to being really really quiet. Okay. Well, this is sort of the very beginnings of the rekindling of tourism I would imagine it'll be people traveling with within their own countries first, and then traveling within Europe, and then finally international travel and transatlantic travel. Yes. That's exactly what we're seeing. The borders here have just reopened. So we're expecting Germans and some Austrians and maybe some French to come now also, I don't anticipate huge numbers like that would have been heretofore. One. Very noticeable thing in the Valley of course, there's no American visitors. As you know, the valley also is very popular with. Chinese travelers Indians many people from Dubai and Saudi Arabia would come here and they're not here this year. So there's a noticeable difference there. So the people getting the real cultural change would be the French speaking. Swiss. German speaking part of his Switzerland and not even leaving their own country exactly. Fifty percent of our guests. Last week were French speaking Swiss and it was the first time I've ever actually met those people and I would say to them. Are you French Swiss would say no, no, we are. All MOM and so I I learned something new immediately the K. The identify as swirl. They were saying exactly what you just said they said it's like we are in a different country it's very dramatic here it's different toossion either those on the do shut down it was really cool. They were very excited to see a different part of their own country. So that was wonderful. Now Stephen you own a hotel in Ireland in Dingle Peninsula and now you own a hotel in Switzerland in Loudoun valley two of my favorite places as a businessman working in both these countries how do you compare the support getting from the government and how the two governments are dealing with this crisis? Well, the difference is. Very. Big. I'm still on team. Ireland. So I want to be positive about my own country, but there's not a lot of support coming. Heretofore in Switzerland for example, within two weeks of the crisis occurring. The. Swiss Federal Council which is the Swiss government offered ten percent of the previous year's turnover and So that's quite a considerable amount of money and they offered that as a loan which was repayable over seven years. Zero percent interest. So they're not looking to profit from it and in Ireland we really struggled to get some assistance. And we got ten thousand euros of overdraft line of credit and but repayable at seven and a half percent interest in Switzerland. We got three hundred thousand. So it's quite a big difference there no-interest at all. No interest at all. Of course, Switzerland may have much stronger and deeper reservists than Ireland, but they were able to immediately come up with assistance very little bureaucracy paperwork, and they immediately got to help us in Ireland. The experience was just simply much different to the government really weren't as proactive for as immediate as were here in Switzerland. The roots here what's around her a lot less strict as well There is a two meter rule here, but I haven't seen anybody wearing masks very much, which is kinda shocking for me because I know in Ireland the whole north of is people should be wearing masks. People definitely are observing social distance. One of my friends said to me that the two meter rule has actually brought Swiss people closer together so. That is so insightful to the Swiss society. It's more difficult thing. It's more difficult thing for Irish people or Italian people are Spanish. Two meters distance than it would be for this people or maybe the. Scandinavians. I can see by home people are wondering. Is the Irish pub culture ever going to come back the way it was with social distancing whereas in. Switzerland. Here for me like I'm I'm in the Alps I'm surrounded by fresh air and. Of of lovely space and it's been a wonderful place to be stranded, I don't even want to complain about it because although I I was stranded here for four months. It was the perfect place I felt very safe. I might have felt different if I was in the middle of Zurich or something or Geneva but I felt very safe. I'd in the Alps and it is lovely and peaceful and quiet, and of course, that's what people are coming here for anyway
Coronavirus contact tracing: App could warn you of COVID-19
"Now we head to Iceland where a country of fewer than four hundred thousand people suffered its last covert nineteen related death back in April one of the tools being used to help keep the virus at bay is a contact tracing phone app something American tech companies are racing to develop for use in this country it's administered by a team of individuals who call and inform people that they may have been exposed to someone with the virus we're joined now by I've upon this in the head of the contact tracing team in Reykjavik welcome to the program thank you so can you tell us about this app how does it work this apparatus is mostly helping us and helping the infected person to trust in their memory appalled where they've been and when they've been around so as an example the person who's got infected remember that she went from place a to be on the same day she got the symptoms but the two countrymen predict what day that boss so with the data that we can refresh in her memory okay we can see here on the map that you went between these parts of the city on that day yes that's correct that was the day I caught my first symptoms so what do you say when you actually end up getting in contact with people when you're doing this contact tracing so we wait for results from the laboratory us and as soon we get information but a positive test medical staff from the team calls the infected person and if they view him or her and the person is asked like when did you first have your symptoms and what have you been with the been in close contact with after the interview with the infected person we begin to reach out to the contacts and tell them that they have been in contact with someone who has got defective code nineteen and for his or her own safety and the safety of others they need to go into quarantine I take it the government has been extremely clear the personal data collected from a user's phone movements and whereabouts and such would be deleted after a few weeks and people have trusted that do you think that would work here in America people in Iceland trusted organizations into the politicians decided in the government decided to stay in the back and put all the trust and listen to scientists my sense is a small nation and it doesn't take long time to raise awareness with the whole nation and to the people trust the organizational consumer protection and the chief epidemiologist in the directorate of health who have been controlling this I slid his had the remarkable success of holding the line on the virus even without canceling schools and allowing some restaurants to stay open with some very serious restrictions about social distancing what do you think the main thing though has been and help flattening the curve in terms of cases do you think contact tracing has been one of the key elements yes contact tracing and early and aggressive testing these two plays a big role just tell me what it looks like right now nice Linda I mean are people going out cool intermingling are they wearing masks you haven't had a case in quite some time there are very few people wearing masks and to it's a beautiful day right now people are going out but they keep these social distancing and also we have known lifted the gathering by a little bit so now more than twenty people can come together I think it's fifty right now and the that are a plan to lift them even more and to that are also planned to open the borders for tourists in June fifteen here in the U. S. many app developers and big tech companies are also exploring contact tracing apps what advice would you give them I would give them good advice at least to look at in our direction and to adopt the same methods we've been using because this personal relations that you dealt with the infected person and the contacts I mean it's a great tool to help you in the context racing team put an app on its own is not
Cured Trout with Gsli Matt
"Name is. I'm shift from Iceland's run to restaurants in Iceland skull and Reykjavik the capital city and then in which is located on a tiny island on the south coast of Iceland called Westman Islands. I'M GONNA share a recipe with you. It's a cute trout similar to Colombo lex methods but using trout and standard Salman and using a little bit different herbs. So what I like to use instead of the traditional until is to use really good salt and Arctic time. Arctic Time Her. That is hard to find. It's only grossing in Iceland Greenland and the Faroe Islands but the flavor notes are almost like a lemon thyme mixed with lavender's and I've actually tried to do with those herbs instead and comes out really good as well so they can be substituted instead of Dr Time from softer which is sustainable cease. Company is to them and they have different flavor mixtures and one of them is Arctic time the recipe itself. Kosher three parts she sold with this Arctic time and one part raw sugar and for every fillet says the health lemon. The recipe is simple. So you have fillets of crowds. You just make sure it's completely debunked and take off the excess fat that is on then you take the fillet and you great health lemon over and then just covered slightly with a mixture of sugar and salt time. Just have to make sure it's completely covered. Keep it covered for eight hours if the phillies really. You're using Salman's of trout. It needs to stay up it longer. Then you just basically scrape off the salt and put it in the cooler and especially if you can put it on the cooling rack and under the fan inside the cooler that way it air dries pits and makes the texture of the cure trout. A little bit better so basically the time to make it as little more than one day after that the texture of the face gets a little more tense. And when you cut it down you can use it on act benedict on just grill toast or even just on its own with. Maybe a little bit site source of homeless. That is grated into either yogurt or cream. It's really simple recipe to make but it's really delicate than lights. I hope you enjoy
What happens next with Brexit could make or break the UK
"I want to get to a very London topic and that is brexit I'm sure no one's tired of hearing about the ups and downs of the UK's attempts to leave the European Union the blame game has escalated now is talks between Britain and Europe seem to have reached an impasse yet again Boris Johnson is due to meet with his Irish counterpart by the end of the week but Leo Varadkar says that hashing out of brexit deal would be very difficult right now for more we go live to Dublin where Bloomberg anchor an adwords is standing by Anna what do you hearing from Ireland good morning teen nothing Caroline yeah well Lee of records you say as stressing that he sees it as hard to get a deal done because of the the the the the state of the impasse and it's hard to break that impasse he said my next week and next week masses because that is a easy leaders summit taking place in Brussels the border border issues along the Irish border that remains one of the big sticking points on on and it's a sticking point on a number of levels first lead the extent to which you'd have to have customs checks how they would work where they would be the Irish is saying they want to see any kind of costumes checking on the island of Ireland that he's a big at pots of the sticking point at the end the sticking points here the other one really to do with any vetoes at various political parties in Northern Ireland will be given on the extent of the closeness in the E. U. regulates read regime and how much that would be adopted by Northern Ireland Sir the various parts of the northern islands of political spectrum see the veto was working in the other parties favor as a for that reason it remains contentious but as you say we are expecting to see a meeting between Iraq on Boris Johnson tomorrow or Friday to trying to come up with some way of breaking this impossible to possible yeah because of cool so the problem and the fallout is being spelled out by this morning in the latest details on the bank of England's financial policy committee warning that the U. K. may face economic turmoil in and no deal breaks it all the lights Reykjavik terminal for the bank being in the same with you K. risks big economic help people if there is an ideal breaks it bots that U. K. banks as prepared as they can be for breaks it say those sort of latest news on it's coming out of the bank of England's of the U. K. perspective alone all of the S. M. but obviously you over in on it because of the budget because that that happened this week and they're all deep concerns in all at about the the full out so for the economy that would markets pricing in what's the perspective on the impact of a potentially a delay or no duplexes yeah well I just spoke to John Cronin who's that from the Irish or British Irish chambers of commerce and that he was saying you know make no mistake it is not possible for businesses to prepare entirely for no deal brexit OSes back to you the I. E. C. which is a representative of the business and employees association here and they were saying that the the the pain of a no deal brexit would fall disproportionately on certain parts of the Irish economy said the agricultural base communities the rural communities that is where the pain would face he said well then in the cities which are more reliant on the services sector which could be a little bit more resilient but there was clearly a lots of concern here and as you say we have the budget yesterday and the Irish government making that budget at entirely based around and no deal brexit will be speaking to the finance minister little bit likes one ask you more about that in terms of what the market is pricing in the Carolinas interesting that we talking about this deadline in just three weeks in a day that's how long it is until the end of October of course and actually the market is not really focused on that day market at a pound invested in particular focusing more on November and December volatility as if they're trying to look through the thirty first of October deadline perhaps they don't think that it will actually happen on that day that day that market participants are expecting
How Global Air Travel is Adapting to Fit Consumers' Needs
"We've been hearing in on news bulletin. What about the new giant airport in China designed by Zaha Hadid. What more can you tell us right so this is obviously a very striking airport. If you've seen the images looks really incredible especially from the air and it's designed to make a real statement in about China's aviation ambitions and the fact that Beijing is one of the biggest markets for aviation in the world what's interesting about this airport will open next week leave leave and but some flights will still operate at the old capital airport which is not even that old itself so although Beijing Capital Airport was on its way to becoming potentially the busiest first airport in the world by passenger traffic now. It's going to be split so no one Beijing airport. We'll take the crown anytime soon. It looks like now Thomas Cook. I'm I'm not sure whether that flies directly into Beijing or not but of course the news about the collapse of Britain's oldest travel company has rocked the world yeah right and that's been that's been big news this week and somewhat overshadowing the Thomas Cook laps which resulted in one hundred fifty thousand people stranded branded another carrier French budget carrier much smaller called Excel Airways also stop tickets days citing financial difficulties. Tis and we're seeing this sort of situation now where things are in flux. Some of the big airlines are making lots of money other airlines especially the long haul low cost airlines the ones that are trying to do charter operations. That kind of thing are really struggling. We keep hearing that Norwegian which is a huge long. Haul low cost operation. They're running out of money and and may fail at anytime so far. That's not happened but it would be a big deal if it did so. It's a time of sort of big change. In the sort of especially long haul low cost airline industry now. The airline that collapsed was Iceland's while right while collapse was what happened earlier this year and it was another one that kind of grew meteorically all these flights everywhere was doing great and then all of a sudden really wasn't and showed that this business model. Maybe maybe doesn't work so well and oddly now so in the past couple of weeks. We've heard that it's going to be resuscitate basically by an American business woman who's going to inject a bunch of money and start start flying while air again but only between Washington. DC and Reykjavik this winter so it's got a lot of people puzzled. They're not sure exactly what the business plan. Is there or why you would want to resuscitate that airlines airlines specifically but it's happening basically an extraordinary reached. I mean can they be enough traffic between the two I would imagine not and of course this is Linda. Which is the older carry? That's been around for years they have they have that traffic pretty much covered so it's really unclear what wow air is going to offer it to sort of pick off that the the traffic there especially in the winter when there's not that much travel to Iceland yeah so it's tricky Let's have a look at Hong Kong airport now. Because of course they have been having many many many troubles with the demonstrations that have been happening there right so because of these demonstrations in Hong Kong passenger traffic is way down in Hong Kong and that means as a lot of airlines have had to either cut flights or change airplanes to smaller planes and they're all struggling trying to make money on their flights right now. They expect that this will no this will not last forever but for the moment. It's very difficult so what's happened. Recently is that an organization representing the airlines that fly in and out of Hong Kong has asked the government and to waive airport fees and give other concessions so that they can basically ride out this period and not incur such heavy losses and still continue to fly on. It's very interesting to look at the organizations that do guarantee the payment for both airports but also for passengers particularly in light of of the Thomas Cook collapsed and various other small airlines going under being at all protected or having some kind of insurance has never been so important yet seems so it seems that these days it pays to to make sure when booking as well you know who you're booking with and that you are covered and all that but is there enough protection actually for the consumer I think for the most part there is there probably examples where there are not. I know I would say for the most part there is protection you know for example with the Thomas Oskoui situation but yeah I guess there could always be more especially as things get more volatile fuel prices rise as as as we head into times of more uncertainty maybe well well of course the rise in fuel prices might have had an impact on the Frankfurt Motor show it's just winding up and there was a drop in attendance. Yes yes a significant drop in attendance. A few hundred thousand people less over the course of the show then then in the previous iteration which was two years back and this is a theme. That's been being being talked about at motor shows throughout this year. I was at the Geneva Motor show earlier this year the same issue a number of car companies decided not to even exhibit their cars. you know attendance was down. The feeling was that the traditional motorshow was becoming somewhat less relevant or even irrelevant in some people's opinions and that's down to a variety the factors the car companies looking to sell their cars or debut their cars in different ways in different places reaching people in different ways and there's also the environmental consideration some of these mega huge supercars with massive engines. It felt a little a little tone deaf. Given the world is talking about and worrying about I mean. Are we seeing a massive frozen electric cars electric cars are huge theme of this year's motorshows in Frankfurt. There were also a number of really high profile aw debuts of electric cars including from top end brands like Porsche a new volkswagens but the car companies are hoping that this is going to kind kind of help resuscitate there on imagine and get people interested in cars again in a way that they seem to be less so but but what we saw at Frankfort was that it didn't quite quite make up the difference. It didn't quite make the splash that they were hoping and finally Gabriel. I mean there is speculation that some of the big shows will cease to exist altogether. Yeah there has been speculation. Speculation actually look how attendance has been dropping. I think probably when I spoke to the people at Geneva motorshow they were talking about how they can kind of you know change and evolve and reinvent themselves to be more relevant and they're all certainly thinking about this being really active about working at how to be relevant in the years to come but there there are people who are saying look if it keeps going this way. There's just there's just not going to be a reason for these to exist

Remembering Harold Prince, Synonymous With Broadway
"Musical Michael guest all that coming up on the frame news comes today that Broadway director and producer Harold Prince is dead at the the age of ninety one according to a statement the musical theater giant died in Reykjavik Iceland after a short illness a prolific producer prince had his hands sculpting some the most endearing and enduring musical classics including West Side Story Sweeney Todd and fiddler on the roof. Jesse Green is the CO chief theater critic of the New York Times uh-huh any join me to talk about Herald prince in his career in musical theater. I started out by playing him a little bit of a tune. You might have heard before from west side story what Prince again as stage manager and producer not as part of the creative team of these shows. It's important to the rest of his career that he knew how to put shows on and not just how to artistically lead them and in west side story and some of the early shows we're seeing more of a matter of his taste which was different from the taste of a lot of the people working at the time then we are car sharing his artistic vision which came into play a little bit later the modern musical can be very political and have a strong point of view. I'm thinking of maybe Hamilton or we're going to be kind of a political and completely bland like Disney's beauty and the beast what was Herald Prince's bias but he was certainly interested in talking about the real world within the theater he was not only talking about it but bringing that to the forefront so a typical thing that how prints how prince show would do would be to invert the usual way you would get information in the great musicals of the Golden Age of Broadway you would typically get a story with characters that suggested a theme what Prince and his collaborators started to do in the seventies in particular is to flip that and begin with the theme and then fit the characters and plot around it so often you get these concepts musically that don't even have very much of a plot in and some people would say even characters but have these very powerful themes that people related to an example would be company where the team is marriage and you don't even really know exactly what's going on for most of the show. I'll play a clip from company. This is Elaine stritch singing. Here's to the ladies who lunch stay smart are again rushing to their classes in October. What was his reputation in terms of working with actors like Elaine Elaine stritch well. He was known as a pretty good disciplinarian. I'll say that much but you had to be if you were going to work with Elaine stritch and the kinds of people that he I chose to cast and that came from the fact that he had been producer and often was the producer of his own show so he had double quote with him whenever he went into that rehearsal room. I WANNA to play a clip from a New York Times interview with Prince that you have up on your site now. This is him talking about the aftermath of a nervous breakdown in its youth. I came to my my parents and said I think there's something really wrong. It's just a black cloud over everything and within a space space about three months it began to go away. The legacy of it was that I I came out of it. A different person extremely ambitious. I wanted what I wanted and I was Gonna get it. I can't help but think of another contemporary prey Broadway producers Scott Rudin right now who is equally driven. Was He really that driven was he.
