"That intentionally. got was like a it just kind of adhered itself. One day brennan was like. Hey this is something. That i think they should pursue. I think as an adoptions counselor for the rescue for the boston terrier rescue and the special needs work that i'm doing with my husband. I think a huge part of that job is to sit with people in their grief. I talked to applicants doctors on a regular basis about the loss of their pets. I interview people that. Want to add another dog cler home. They talk to me about the animals that they lost so kind of became second nature to me and it was really hard in the beginning but then i realized like these people are giving me like a peek behind closed doors. They're sharing a very intimate experience with me. A very painful experience with me and it became kind of comfortable for me to do and then this is my second masters degree. My first master's degrees in women's gender studies. And i always kind of knew that i wanted to work with the human experience. I'm very interested in working with women in their experiences. And i think the majority of my rescuer tends to be with women as well a lot of the women that i interview and i talked to you in families tends to be like more relationships with women. So i think it. All kind of you know culminated in this desire to want to be a mental health counselor in so now that's pursuing. I met saudi university in louisville kentucky and in the clinical mental counseling program and i decided to pursue pet loss for. I feel like grief is talked about more openly these days but not necessarily as it pertains to pets. I feel like that's still like you know. I've gone through obviously many times with losing pets and you. There's almost a shame that. Oh i haven't gotten over this. So why is that. We haven't cleared that hurdle yet. Well and this is what i kind of tried to explain to my clients. It's what i call the three gs of at loss. So you kind of have these overlapping concepts that. You're trying to wade through so it's.

"The fact that if you're in good standing you can still get the degree of master and so slowly over time their requirements. For why and you end up in the situation that you do the first part of your study. Get your bachelor's degree and then as long as you don't muck up and in good standing you can top that up with your masters degree yet. So we have the situation which confused some people especially people ready wikipedia entries for politicians. That people think that they've started an but actually of course haven't just done. What the rest of a bachelor's degree and then a certain number of terms afterwards depending on the arcane rules of different universities you can upgrade that tomas dis- so you end up with strange slightly strange situation that sits in place at the start the nineteenth century when the university is probably a good idea to introduce rigorous examinations. There is an attempt to bring improper structures for people to get their their is but because people have got into the habit of just turning up and graduating it doesn't it doesn't stick and therefore office putting terms of organising the owners level And not worrying too much about the people who come back and take them in may and it becomes atrophied into it but in london when they set their universities they decide they will have exams is degree and therefore they become an extra exercise that you can come into it yet. You go away with your first degree but if you want to come back into study it is proper study you actually have to do something to get most degrade a little later.

"Research with on students. Don't experience during covid. Nineteen i what jumped out at you from this piece of work I thought it was really interesting. To in one key research highlighted. She concerns about some aspects of their online any experienced during the pandemic although it would be clearly identified the views on what aspects of that. Lynn experience they were missing out on. It wasn't so much about the standard of the teaching is more about the variety and breadth of learning activities. I thought the other interesting bit was the survey also signalled. The students are actually very open to retaining many aspects of online learning. So although they weren't me happy about some aspects at the moment when the pandemic they were saying they're actually with some good bits as well and bits that they would like to see continue post pandemic so it kind of points interesting questions about. What does the future. Learning of students lit like. Yeah that was. That was definitely one of the big takeaways. I i mean. Naturally i wonder looking looking at. This is clear that students wanna keep the discussion forms recorded. Lectures online tests It's just that they don't want that to be the only way they engage. I wonder whether this thinking going into what next year looks like. Given that this is essentially kind of the normal in terms of what students might expect. I think that's right. I mean. I don't think any university potentially around the world is thinking that provision will just go back to how it was prior to the pandemic there will be lots of thinking across different departments and different university management in terms of what aspects of this. This time we wanna take forward what we learn. What are some of the things that enhance the offer enhanced the support we can give to students. And how can we take that forward. But that's just gonna have to be balanced with managing workloads managing expectations and and really sort of getting the right balance. I guess between all of these things. But i do think those lots of aspects of the way we have changed online provision online support services and so on that have been really an excellent addition and sorts of things. I think we want to continue to support and ensure that they can be improved and optimize going forward and and other. The good news from it was was that people have patients are happy. Germany with things. Like the responsiveness of of star and and other academics in the institution. Which is obviously. I think speaks to the hard work that people are doing and saudi universities at at the moment. But it's the the the where things get. Dicey are kind of the the wraparound the enriching experience engagement interaction. And we'd argue that a fundamental part of the of the learning experience. And that's going to be quite difficult to catch up alastair. Yeah i mean this stuff. Just an amazing efforts and pulling out all the stops to make sure that students are still learning. And i still supported to learn and i was really pleased to see that there's a little recognition for that kind of both one to one support and the learning is is being delivered. But with all these stop and start restrictions we've had a really disruptive year and what we're continually hearing from students is. They're missing out. On the white issued and experience they would normally enjoy and benefit from a normal year and for me..

"This is press play on W I'm Madeleine brand the hajj. For months. There has been speculation about the annual pilgrimage to Islam's holiest site of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. 2.5 1,000,000 Muslims participated last year. Well. This week, Saudi Arabia announced that only 1000 pilgrims will be allowed to make the journey this year, none from outside the kingdom, so it's effectively canceled from anyone outside Saudi Arabia. It is yet another economic blow to Saudi Arabia, already suffering from low oil prices, and that could impede Crown Prince Mohammed bin Someones plans to move beyond oil and turned his country into a global economic player. NBS has spent years consolidating his power, silencing dissidents and even jailing his own mother along the way. Ben Hubbard writes about the life of the man in line to rule Saudi Arabia for the next half century. In his new book, It's called NBS, the Rise to power of Mohammad Bin Salman and I spoke with Van Who's the Beirut bureau chief for the New York Times a few months ago. Right. So NBS is young, Relatively speaking. He's 34 years old, and the King has lots of sons who were in line. When did he become? The clear favorite to become the next ruler. Well, one of the problems with Saudi Arabia you know, with understanding issues like this in Saudi Arabia is that this is an absolute monarchy. And so it's not like the King is ever going to sit down for an interview and explain Why he decided to choose this particular one of his sons. Many of his older sons are, I think, in a traditional sense, much, much more accomplished. They studied in the West. One of them was one of the first he was the first Arab astronaut. Another one. Another one has a PhD from Oxford. They're very, very accomplished. NBS doesn't have any of these qualifications. His background was almost entirely inside the kingdom got a law degree at a Saudi university, and then you basically went to his father, and so you know, we we don't really know exactly why the decision was made, but it's clear from what we do know that he was very, very close to his father. He basically shadowed his father for many years. And his father came to trust him greatly. And so when it came time to choose among his son's the one who would inherit his power, he chose MBIA's Well, the Saudi royal family is famously wealthy and some of the princes are well, they live quite extravagant lifestyles. Where would you put NBS in this? Is he one of those that likes to flaunt his wealth? Well, he started out not particularly wealthy. His father was not known to be a super wealthy prince didn't have a lot of business interests, and neither did NBS. But soon after his father became king, we see him kind of gone. This buying spree where your money comes out of nowhere, and he's you know, in a very short period of time, he makes a number of significant acquisitions. The famous one is this yacht, the serene Which he bought Actually, from a from a Russian vodka magnate, and it cost you know, just under half a $1,000,000,000. He apparently saw it floating off the southern coast of France while he was on vacation and said, I want that boat. So he sent his some of his aides to go down the negotiated and the ink was dry quite quickly. That same day. A very nice place. It's I forget how many levels it is, but it has speed boats and as a grand piano. I think it has a climbing wall. There's a Jacuzzi on one of the top decks that you can hang out in and out. You know, he spends a lot of time on the yacht floating in the Red Sea. You know his other famous purchases, he bought a gigantic palace outside of Paris, which is known as the world's most expensive home. You know, he was also it was leaked that he was the buyer of the You know, famous Leonardo Da Vinci painting at Christie's auction house. Now the Saudis and Mohammed bin Salman have denied up and down that he was the one that Got it. But pretty much everyone still believe that he did. So you know, from somewhat lower ranks in terms of money in the royal family, he very much rocketed to the top and started dropping these huge sums on things. And so initially NBS he's seen as what as you say. He's sort of a unknown quantity. Ah, here in the West. Initially, How is he seen in Saudi Arabia? Well, Saudi Arabia, you know, kind of depends on who you're talking to. I think it took people a little bit of time to realize what a force the sky wass, but it became clear very quickly that he was out to do things that nobody had done before. You know, within a few months of you know his father becoming king. He becomes the defense minister, which puts him in charge of the military and he launches a new military intervention in Yemen. Saudi had never really been a not kind of a war before. He starts talking about how important it is to diversify the Saudi economy away from oil. Then he starts talking about how he wants to change Saudi society, and he wants women to drive and he wants to bring in entertainment and all of these things that Saudi Arabia had never been known for, and so It became clear pretty quickly that this was a young man with big plans who would not gonna waste any time and trying to do what he wanted to do Right? So he went on. That famous charm offensive He came here to Los Angeles is part of that, where he really wanted to sell this new version of Saudi Arabia to the West that They were democratizing in a way, or at least opening up and liberalizing some of these old constraints, letting women drive and they wanted movies in the kingdom and popular music and they wanted to Open it up for more business as you say, privatized the national oil company..

"Bestsellers list now for a week for two weeks for almost two years straight I can hear you laughing in the background there but tell me still in her twenties this isn't just any book is our very first novel fantasy epic called the children of blood and bone now a new book finally knocked it out of the top spot but you worry about tell me any any issue with the new number one two children virtue and vengeance is finally out it's the second book in a planned trilogy tell me IBM has been called the new JK Rowling and in the books tell us a number of stories but in some ways they tell the story of a monarchy and oppressed minority struggling for control of magic commit John west African myths and tell me that he and his own experiences as a Nigerian American and giggles included it tell me adding ME joins me now from San Diego hi how are you I'm good how are you I'm good it's nice to hear you chuckle when I say that you had a big one for two years yeah I think it's I'm in a place where I'm trying really hard to like the first two books I wrote them I had to write them back to back in both were really insane processes and so there there was rarely a moment of me being like oh look at what you've done it was okay but you have a book you need to finish that you needed to face four minutes ago and at you know so just I was so focused on that and so I'm trying to step back and look at what you've done and that's difficult for me so I think I'm always kind of forced to self reflect when I hear you even hearing myself as a novelist like that makes myself feel like oh that's funny novelist what is what is it say that you can have like the number one both still be like I guess I guess I'm a novelist I don't I I've spent so much time trying to be like is this your brain's way of protecting yourself is this is this a psychological phenomenon I think and I kind of hit me a little bit when I was talking to a friend this weekend I've been writing stories since I was six and I didn't tell anyone about it until I was about twenty two so I've spent the majority of my life alone in these worlds and then when I write or when I wrote children of blood and bone and children of virtue and vengeance there was a lot going on but when it came to the writing process it still had to be me alone in this world and so it kind of feet I guess I feel like the part of myself for the part of my brain that writes these books stays alone in that world stays at the computers so there is there is a genuine confusion that these stories are out in the world and that people read them and enjoy them and I was thinking I was thinking about Jackie I know you're really big JK Rowling fan last time you were on the show you and I talked about it we talked about making up how much we love Harry potter and I'm sure you remember how excited you were when a new Harry potter book is coming out right yeah yeah it was exciting yeah no it was a bad play valves bills were the holiday markers of of my use of all my gosh there's a new one so no so what's it like being on the other side of that equation I'm sure you must have seen it like the excitement was crazy when fans knew that this new book is coming out it honestly especially because it came out in December I felt like Santa Claus it was really cool because it was just giving it really did I love I really like giving people things I don't like about a weird thing to say but it's like I love I love giving presents I love getting presents too and it's not even because I want something but I just there's something even when someone gets you like a cupcake and it's like you took time out of your human day and you got this cupcake and you didn't eat it and you protected it and you brought it to you know I just think there's something so special about giving people presents and with book online it was a whirlwind for all of us like no no one knew what was going to happen with the two it was different because I'm like oh you're my readers like you're my people you're my tribe my fandom kinda name themselves the terminators so it felt like we're like a this is a I guess it's it just felt closer now because it's like oh you're not just excited about the story your ex that the fact that a story like this is being told or an author like me exist you're now invested in this story tell me more about that he said not just that it's a story like this exist not just an offer like you exists what what are these fans telling you about what the story is and what you mean to them honestly it it's still it's a part of me is like you gotta go home and write all this down in your journal I grew up I grew up in a mostly like I went through puberty in a mostly white community and then obviously I didn't see myself in my favorite stories my favorite movies or my favorite television shows so when I was writing I spent about twelve years writing alone in my room but with only white characters because I'd like subconsciously internalize that only white characters could be in stories and that like I didn't belong in my own imagination and so there was a big part of me that new writing this story a story like this was gonna be saving a little told me is out there but I couldn't have anticipated all the other ways this story would affect people like I had one person come up to me the day book two came out and was like Hey children of blood and bone got me through my miscarriage and today I you know my doctor just told me that I'm healed and in so I'm having you sign this book to like my future child and I hope that we both come to meet you AT book three things we're like what you know you could ever I try and think about everything especially because given how few stories we have like this and how big of a spotlight is on this series every element every word every decision is a Rubik's cube and I've turned it over and mixed up all the colors and but to hear things like that or to hear like a twelve year old student who's who was born a female and you know whispers to me like can you sign it to this name and nobody else knows this is who I am on the inside and I actually connected with the nine because he hated something about himself but just because he hated it and tried to hide it doesn't mean he could actually hide it and so that taught me a lot about myself I was like whoa like I'm nine I didn't people will relate in any not in any way in almost every way in ways you couldn't even have imagined once you are when he was talking about was like oh you're right that does it lay on to that story but like I'm not writing it I didn't write it with that intention but you can write something even without having the intention and it can still be so healing for someone and so life altering for Selma and like it's kind of it really I'm I'm kind of shaking myself up sitting here because I'm like oh my gosh do you the I think if the things I have no control over those are the things that because I'm a control freak though yeah well let's let's get let's get into the Rubik's cube a little bit here let's get into how you how you put this together because I know the last time we talked you were talking to me a little bit about how part a part of writing the first book was you processing gain in your response to police shooting of young African American folks in in the US you know where the real world events you're processing while writing this new book this children of virtue inventions yeah it was a different experience and I love that you asked that that what some people are like what inspired you to write book too and I was like mom book one in a contract and put in place that was just my own two was a different experience because again like you said book one was so tied to what was happening to my community where is book two it was like okay I've I've actually have all these lego pieces to start with it's not a blank slate and so it was sort of an emotional break in the sense that it was the book is still very much about pain and the pain because each other but it wasn't pain that was restricted to black communities it was still incredibly emotional and several other ways but he broke one was really hard to write all these things and like not be able to erase the real names behind these fictional stories and faces yeah so for book two is okay it's not just about black pain it's about it's more about power on but it's also about water and that was sort of the not sort of like it was a really unique experience to put myself in the same place emotionally for something I haven't been directly affected by because it one of my big sort of criticisms or fresh Alfie frustrations one of my big sort of frustrations before writing CB beat was realizing that all of these fantasy and sci fi stories are stories of oppression but without people actually affected by you know what they're representing so it was like oh you're writing a story about racism but you don't even have a real world representation of the people who actually suffer these problems so you're like oh what if there was dragons and racism you make both of them feel is fictional so I can't I mean that leads me to these movies that are about to come out by his plans for movies where people are going to see people who look like you in film on big screens I know some things are here can you can tell me anything about where things are heading yeah things are heading in the right direction and it's pretty cool because I am so I'm an optimist I like to think I'm a pessimist because I'm like you know too much about the world in its darkness to like be optimistic but I think I'm a realist but I'm also an optimist and especially I worked in Hollywood for like eight months so between that between being a consumer who's been burned by adaptation you know like I I've been expecting a lot but the movie team has been on board like the book deal happen on a on a Thursday I think the movie deal happen on a Monday or Tuesday like so they've been on like in working on this from the jump and yeah it's just been it's been amazing we have a Rick Famuyiwa who wrote and directed dope as the director of this we have Disney's boxing Lucas films as like the home for this we have an incredible screenwriter actually talked to her I think it was last week yeah we talk last week and she was telling me about a certain scene and I literally got sweaty and like Saudi universities must play this part because I can't see I can't actually I can't say this one I can say this one only because the only reason I feel licensed to say this one is because this person was on my Pinterest board from the beginning of this entire process but I needed pictures of a dress Elba Serrano right right because I was like how Wade it was picturing him doing the role like brought it alive in my mind and so that was the only because I don't want to say anything because I also know the beautiful thing with this was sort of illustrated by Black Panther like we didn't Letitia Wright and like had been in like some great indie films before that but then she came out and everyone was rightfully obsessed with her is like say with winced in Duke I think like here is that this is an incredible vehicle to bring so many.

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power

"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about. It has been moved to something called the State Security Agency and the control of bin Salman so our bin Salman controls all the military and security apparatus in the country. So who is his real challenge? No one they can speak. They can talk about. They cannot do very much. There are members of the family who want to see him out. This is not strange to the Saudi ruling family King Faysal was shot and killed by his own nephew. King Salad was overthrown by his brothers. And also there was an assassination attempt on his life after he was deposed and expelled. This is nothing new in the history of the family so I expect to see some harsh measures against some of those younger princess like Nawaf bin Ni- F- Who was arrested and Mohammed bin? Naif who is basically the boss the boss of this of this of these people because he has the best chance in rivaling Ahmed bin Salman let us remember. It was the Obama Administration C. i. a. A and Obama who brought Hamad Knife as the future king and gave him a lot of accolades And supported him and tell trump came and push 'em B. S. INSTEAD AND MR. I'm mad but was pushed out and he still. Mr Benign has a lot of support in Washington in day democratic side. So that was the fear that MBBS had Laura how much might MB S.'s? Stature in court or credibility in the court of being damaged by his own somewhat petulant impulsive behavior over the years whether that's launching this war in Yemen his involvement? In the murder of Jamal Khashoggi would there be a concern in the rest of the court that he might be quite the loose cannon concerns among some parts of the ruling family and very strong concerns internationally. I think there are two distinct issues. One is about foreign policy mistakes. And as you've said in terms of Yemen in terms of Qatar in terms of the confrontation with Iran and particularly in Lebanon. It seemed that. His foreign policy initiatives haven't worked very well. I think within the country that's less important like the Ritz Carlton and this latest. Crackdown are actually less important than the nuts and bolts of vision twenty thirty which is his transformation plan so Mohammed bin Salman has stepped forward and said we know we need to change. The oil is going to run out. We've got to move into a new era. Diversify the economy. Be ready for this. Get Jokes Young People Change Society? I need a huge amounts woods that intensive transforming the way in which Saudi Arabia

"Behind the scenes how would that change things. well it's true and in fact there is some precedent. there was an attack on a couple of months ago all of our different Aramco angst of the trees. trying to I don't think it turned out to be from somewhere else but so what that tells us which is not good news is that there are at least some elements in the hippie movement to all proud to proclaim there there's support for will somehow involved with it the sort of attacks which we will patrol but which make a life in Yemen tension a lot will dangerous Sir either way it's not it's not great news but I didn't see that would be a hell. the same might compare is is coming out the blaming it wrong but it's from to Tehran to accuse the US of deceit as you say all of this rhetoric ramps up a whole it's beds of political conflict that that is already pretty dia for Yemen what do you think needs to happen now to to de escalate the tensions that are already running a fever pitch. what exactly you're exactly right the the running it. and are you would like your body I understand agree very angry or frustrated as well it may be sick at the press of Yemen where are you from us. two four dear lot of excuses like bald escalation. really difficult to expect all leadership's around the region but it's the right thing to do our judgment hello for my own discussions in Yemen the reach from the back DS. is a possibility that is in my view a condition precedent a necessary condition for re stops all the political negotiations which led that complex lose now become urgent on the parts of the last week thanks for your answer to counselors today even for the sake of the gasket off existential threat I think the country this is just rounded up to make him and looked like a regional problem I'm interested to hear that you say there was a willingness for the discussions that you've had it's presumably with with various sides in this conflict I'm saying what to you then. details hi now for some weeks discussions both with the results of the those and they'll swear I present hardy but it's got respect as well as a Saudi university officials in the US and so forth and we are all saying to each other how can we stop. sensible treaty escalation which would mean that we ran down the attacks on particular targets are obviously as a first step and. because because of that but yes they should yeah but itself and. a one run lead to secretary to me he said we want a political process but we we don't do that acts of war. the heightened with high temperature threaten any moves that you make to the political table so that so I think the context in which. in those discussions thank you. it's not impossible which is which is good to him Austin Griffis United Nations special envoy for Yemen joining us on the stage. the restaurant Macon thirty farmers filed for bankruptcy it's part of efforts to deal with thousands of lawsuits which accused the firm of fueling the U. S. appealing crisis will base back this test yeah James company which is owned by the billing at sackcloth and music please playing as you said damaging role inspiring the appeal crosses to sounds of drugs at the painkiller oxycontin this me today's designed in part to resolve more than two thousand lawsuits filed against you by their states in county ministrations cross United States Harry Nilsson is a leading U. S. health care center in many ways you could say that oxycontin once the match that lit the the fire it was it was the catalyst of the opiate overdose death crisis the United States so the company has been at the center of the opioid litigation because it is viewed as being the six singularly the most responsible most culpable of all the pharmaceutical manufacturers and so there has not been agreement among the states and so because the states are not in agreement because roughly twenty twenty six states still think that there's more money that should be on the table and more responsibility to be attributed there's no choice for Purdue here if it's going to have any kind of a settlement but to go into bankruptcy the company is claiming that this settlement the cell methods reached with the twenty some other states is approaching ten to twelve billion the states that object are are disputing that in claiming that this settlement is only worth some something in the area of above six billion potentially and so there's a lot of dispute part of the issue is whether the British pharmaceutical owned by the stack of family which is part of a which is the parent of Purdue Monday farmer how much it's really worth though they're claiming that they're the Sackler interest in Monte farmer is going to be their contribution but that this states believe that there's much much more money on the table the state of New York for example which has been a leader claims that the secular family is worth some thirteen billion dollars independent of the company and that bill. yes I've been transferred and in recent years out of the United States your overseas and they want to see that money added to to the pile not Terry Nelson and just briefly to say in a statement to the Royce news agency cycle family said it's that hope that this bankruptcy press as well and they're ready to ship and the money will be used for public benefit well I think you know the bridge from is the Boris Johnson has insisted that huge progress is being made in brexit talks and a cat person would break out of the European Union just like the comic book hero the incredible hulk frees himself from the manacles and chains when he gets angry the conservative leader made the comments have meetings with European Commission chief John told unica and Ian of OSHA to Michelle Boney a in Luxembourg later today well John worth is about a bicycle blogger who teaches easy politics at the college of Europe saris Europe scared the incredible hulk. you're a Pacific not scared of the incredible hulk indeed these comments didn't they're done very well in Brussels yesterday when they were made up by Jones news team so ultimately I during the process is going to be scared today what Brussels would like to hear from Johnson will be concrete proposals of watered new brakes deal nine look like because there's concrete proposals of not being forthcoming from London yet so I room attempting some called younger is going to be and worrying about meeting Johnson stay another signals from year of that progress is being made on some level as as Boris Johnson is keen to stress I am we had the meeting on Friday at least there was some ideas that were floated by the U.

"That can flout modern diplomatic norms. My sense is there is a lot more here than people realize and I intend to use my feet on the intelligence committee, and the ranking democrat on the finance committee to make it clear that the days of a country just getting a slap on the wrist when they violate diplomatic norms. Those days are over a proposed legislation that would cats the sovereign wealth funds at a significant rate, and I've also made it clear that under my legislation.

Well for more we go to Portland, Oregon where we're joined by Shane Dixon. Cavanaugh?

Now, explain how you got tipped off to the story. And then how it grew. Thank you, Amy and one for having me on the show and happy belated birthday to democracy. Now, we got the a tip from federal law enforcement back in October twenty eighteen specifically with the case involving Abdul remind neuro the Saudi national who was accused of fatally hitting fifteen year old Fallon smart here in Portland, Oregon at the time we learned that Nora who disappeared in June of twenty seventeen two weeks before his manslaughter trial here federal law enforcement believes that the Saudi government helped mister Noura escape prosecution in return to Saudi Arabia in kind of an extraordinary manner. Law enforcement believe that the Saudi government likely. Furnished Mr. neuro with an illicit passport and possibly got him out of the country here on a private plane. Once we started looking into that particular case, we soon found that. There were at least four other cases here in Oregon where young Saudi students who are studying at public university universities or colleges here. Were accused of serious crimes from rape to possession of child pornography? All of them were all, but one were built up by the Saudi government and all of them have since disappeared. Now, Shane most people are not aware that there's a considerable number of Saudi university students here in the United States for most of them actually paid their expenses and their tuition paid by the Saudi government. Could you talk about that the the the the the the numbers involved if you have an idea? Yeah. Absolutely. So following nine eleven where relations between the Saudi government and the US government were immensely strained back. In about two thousand five or two thousand six George W Bush and keying Abdulah reached an agreement that would create sort of a massive scholarship program funded by the Saudi government to allow tens of thousands of Saudi students come over to the United States to study here in the US last year in two thousand eighteen there were forty thousand university students from Saudi Arabia here at American universities and colleges that was down from a high even a few years before of about seventy thousand. So one thing that we've tried to make clear in our reporting is even though we're looking at criminal cases here in Oregon and other parts of the country where Saudi students have been accused of crimes and have vanished. Facing prosecution. It's just a tiny fraction of the tens of thousands of Saudi students studying in the US. Each year.

"Running by NATO the system Crecy now, I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace. Well, the Oregonian newspaper is reporting federal law enforcement officials have launched an investigation after a number of Saudi students living in the United States vanished while they were facing serious criminal charges, including manslaughter and rape. The paper found that in that least four cases the Saudi government paid the defendant's bail and legal fees before they disappeared. In one case police believe Saudi officials spirited a Saudi national out of the country on a private plane using a fake passport. So he could avoid being tried for killing a fifteen year old Portland teenager in a hit and run democratic Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon has called on the Trump administration to share information about the Saudi government suspected role in the disappearances last week why with customs import protection Commissioner.
