Russian court fines war critic who asked for prison instead
"A Russian court has convicted a woman in Siberia for criticizing Russia's invasion of Ukraine on social media, her punishment was a hefty fine, despite her plea for a prison sentence instead. Marina novikova, a 65 year old lawyer, was found guilty of spreading false information about the Russian army, denouncing Russia's military was made a criminal offense after president Vladimir Putin sent troops into Ukraine more than 14 months ago. Novikov's posts on the messaging app telegram decried the invasion and criticized the Russian governments. The court in novikov's hometown of seversk imposed a fine of over $12,000, even though prosecutors and novikova herself begged the court to send her to prison instead. I'm Karen Chammas

The Soviet Spies' Depths of Evil With David Adams Cleveland
"I'm talking to David Adams Cleveland at the author of a brand new book novel gods of deception and David, you were just making a point and we had to cut you off. Please forgive me and go back to that point. Just to give you some idea about the depths of evil that were perpetrated by the Soviet spies in the American government, besides Alger Hiss, Alger Hiss, by the way, on the way back from yalta, stopped in Moscow for one day with elements of the American delegation. And in a secret ceremony he was taken aside by the head of Soviet intelligence and given the order of the red star for his contributions to Soviet intelligence. That's just for beginners. But here's something even more astonishing that Americans need to know about the level, the depth of evil. That was going on at this time. There was a Soviet spy at the upper echelons of the Treasury Department by the name of Harry Dexter white. Well, in 1941, the summer of 1941, Harry Dexter white was approached by his Soviet handler. Victor pavlov was his name, same name as the guy that had the salivating dog. Victor pavlov. And he wanted to meet with Harry Dexter white at old app, it's grill in Washington, D.C., right off the Treasury Department. And Pablo says I'm going to meet you there. I'm going to have a copy of The New Yorker with me. You'll recognize me. They'd never met before. They sit down. They have lunch. And pavlov pushes a piece of paper across the table to Harry Dexter white and he says, I want you to read this and put it to memory. And white picks up the paper and reads it and nods and says, yes, I understand. What that was on that piece of paper was what the Soviets called operation snow. It was a plan to, for the U.S. to ratchet up the pressure on Japan. In summer of 1941, that is embargoes on oil and raw materials, where the idea of pressuring the Japanese so that instead of invading north in the Siberia where they'd been fighting with the Soviets for a number of years, that Japan would be forced to go south.
The Rise of Leon Trotsky & Communism
"Trotsky was perhaps the most intellectual of the bunch Of the communist revolutionaries that overthrew and took over Russia The truth is they never had even close to majority of the population behind them About 20% They didn't even have a majority of the quote unquote workers behind them And even though a number of them would serve time in Siberia the fact is that their efforts were not taken seriously enough until it was too late Trotsky was among the most vicious of them but they were all quite vicious When Lennon took over as I said he would soon get 6 relatively shortly thereafter Stalin would eventually replace Lenin through a number of connivance and assassinations and Trotsky would originally become the head of the military The Red Army but he fell out of favor Because he had a different ideological view of Marxism than did Stalin Stalin's view was more akin to a strong man and a single political party the Communist Party which would be the state the party is the state And that party would be a permanent fixture That would in essence ensure that the Marxist economic system and all the rest of it would be enshrined and be complied with

UN: Wildfires getting worse globally, governments unprepared
"A new report warns that global warming will lead to more wild fires in the US and around the world but most governments are ill prepared to handle the problem researchers say uncontrollable and devastating wildfires are becoming an expected seasonal event in many parts of the world including the western U. S. eastern Australia northern Siberia and central India their report for the United Nations finds a worsening cycle climate change brings more drought and higher temperatures which makes it easier for fires to start and then those fires release more carbon into the air that affects the environment and people's health experts say many nations are devoting more time and money on fighting fires then prevention the US announced a fifty billion dollar effort to reduce wildfire risk but is only devoted a fraction of the funding I am Jackie Quinn

"Her? You may already know her as the woman behind a company that I'm excited about. It's called moo plus oink equals moin. Do you get it? Box dot com lucinda. Welcome to the program. Well, thank you for having me, Eric. Well, now where do you come from? Well, I come from a small town called Lebel, and Missouri. In Missouri. They call it Missouri. I know it's Missouri. I mean, I know that you're not close to an airport if you pronounce it Missouri. You're a real missourian. Right? Something like that. Come on. So your story because I want my audience to get to know you and the whole story. But tell us the short version just to start of what is morning and moik box and the family farm. And just give us that. And then we're going to get into the backstory. Yeah, sure. Well, I'm an 8th generation farmer. 8th generation farmer. You don't look that old. How's that possible? Right. Thank you. You're an 8th generation farmer. Yes. Can you tell us how far that goes back? What year are we talking about? Well, since they came over and actually they came through New York than Virginia. And then they end up in Kentucky. But you don't even know when this is. I know in the early 1800s, we moved from Kentucky to Missouri, which is why I sound the way I was. But I was saying, but if I were part of an 8th generation something, I would give you dates. I give you the day of the week that we came over. I mean, 8th generation is so far back by American standards. I'm wondering if you didn't come across the land bridge, the Bering strait language from Siberia because we're talking way, way, way back. Okay, but so you are now, you're it. You're the 8th generation. Yes, so I was born raised and still hail from a town of 600 people. And so I grew up on a family farm, obviously. And when I was 11, my father died and my mother was left with 6 mouths to feed in a farm she couldn't afford. I know that seems crazy that she would have land everywhere and we would go hungry, but it's kind of like that water water everywhere and nothing to eat. And not a drop to drink. Yeah, nothing. What is that from Alvin? Coleridge? The ancient Mariner. And by the way, who cares? Go ahead. So anyway, didn't make sense to me. So I really made it when I grew up. I felt like it was my life mission to help family farmers be independent outside of big egg to be able to make a living to have an honest day's pay for an honest day's wage.

"Polyploid palm grains and just these genome duplicated completely Frankenstein gametes. And so these grains would have unequal chromosome numbers and then they would also be malformed. Two. Oh boy, I mean, yeah, you hear about a Chernobyl. You hear about mass volcanic eruptions heavy metal pollution in the air and even down to UV radiation. I mean, these are alarming sort of what gets all of us should be like, oh, crap, what? But then you hear something like that where anomalous freezing, cooling. I mean, things that aren't necessarily like on surface value that toxic or scary, but still having these effects and when you think of like the variability we're introducing into our systems every time we're pumping another couple 100,000 tons of CO2 into the air or methane and just the ways we create disturbance on the landscape. I mean, that's super that's a huge red flag. And so when you think of what you set out to do in the scope of inference that you thought you had. And then to hear something like this where you're connecting threads that happen back in the 60s. You know what I mean? This isn't like you're on the pulse of like a 2022 new paper just came out of Siberia kind of thing. I mean, this has got to be one of those things where you're like, oh, we've uncovered something that is widely applicable. And then the question becomes, which stress do you want to look at? Yeah. Bingo. It's really that and that's a whole opens a huge can of worms. And really we're hoping that there will be some more some more studies out that can sort of look at these other stresses. For sure. And that's the kind of point of this kind of baseline work, right? It's easy to be like, yeah, we just don't have it so we got it. But then it's that door opening experience. So what do you kind of envision this work? What are the next steps? Because that's a big part of any research is like future work, should include. And I can imagine what you've just unlocked in your head as someone that really enjoys this and spends time geeking out about this stuff is just, oh my God, what have we just done? Yeah, I sometimes am kicking myself because again, they always say that you open up more questions than you answer when you're going about in science and that's certainly true of any experiment or study. I would say that this one opened up a whole realm of boy. There's a lot of different stresses that need to be looked at. And I would say some of I guess if I were to prioritize, I would say probably acid rain and heavy metal pollution are the two next sort of biggies that need to be looked at because there really are really hot topic and they're really popular to publish on right now in extinctions. Believe it or not. Again, popularity in science really kind of drives the forage of where everything goes. And so usually before things go far in a direction where people are saying, well, we already know that this is what probably happened. You want to be able to go not so fast. Because that could be something. So there are papers coming out there saying, oh, we're seeing heavy metal induced malformations and spores. So I'm like, wow, how do you know? Because first of all, this is a like pod and being one of the few people who can grow these in the world. I know you haven't actually looked at it. So tell me, it's all sorts of things where and I don't mean to be catty in that. No, no, no, I get it. You know, you end up again sort of the buggy or the carriage in front of the horse. And I find myself being in that sort of maybe not so desirable position to be like, hold on a second. And that was part of this study actually ended up really in the weeds was I started looking down everywhere I would present on this. I would get the question of, okay, so we've got polyploid grains. We've got genome duplications going on. So if we're seeing these malformations, doesn't this mean that we're having this massive proliferation of polyploid evolution, plants are just duplicating their genomes and they're the ones that survive because polyploids are better. And I'm just like, that's kind of a simplistic view of the world. But at the same time, it's a good question because and it's fair because yes, many times a lot of these malformations do correspond with what we see in genome duplications, big grains and larger increases in size in spores and pollen can actually be used to infer sometimes genomes or at least maybe not genome, but actually the chromosome complement or the size of chromosome there. So that was something that I definitely wanted to address in this. And that was sort of one of the first things I started with was hearing that that was what people were asking about is it sort of gives you an idea of where the pulse of scientific thinking in the field is. And I'm lucky that I had opportunities to sort of present this work a couple of times and get that feedback because that I got to think about it a few months and really looked at the literature, but it turns out, in this case, that doesn't seem to be quite as plausible of what's going on. And that ended up being because of a number of things and one of them was, well, if we're talking about there's a lot of hypotheses saying that polyploids do well under stress because many times if you have more genetic sort of genes to play with or copies, you can do better. But it doesn't always work that way in extinction. And it's pretty dang random who does well in a mass extinction who doesn't. It doesn't make a lot of sense. And so one of the things that I was looking at was that with a lot of these times we see these malformations, the trees that are making them are not necessarily dead or dying, but they're receding. They're becoming less and less common. They're on their way out as they start kicking out these mutations. So what that suggests and I could be wrong and maybe I will be and that would be exciting if I am. Is that it seems that the forests are really deep, deep trouble when these things show up. And from our previous research, we found that it even before the trees actually start feeling the stress enough to produce these pollen grains. They're already sterile. So by the time you actually, so our lowest end Permian sort of volcanic emissions, ozone weakening scenarios. The trees were sterilized. And they were producing what looked like normal pollen. But it wasn't until you ramped up the radiation dosage that you started seeing the malformations kick in. So that was creepy because when you do see things popping up, then you do wonder how bad was it back then? I mean, to see, again, what we were talking about that time transgressive and that space transgressive nature of the fossil record, the fact that you are getting a frequency that's spiking up noticeably across possibly huge time spans, they must be pretty common..

Hey brain stuff learn vogel bomb here this summer. Severe consequences of climate change were felt around the world tornadoes. Hurricanes flash floods and wildfires in russia for example twenty twenty one has been one of the country's worst wildfire seasons ever at one point more than three hundred wildfires burned simultaneously those burning in siberia altogether were bigger than all other fires in the world combined. So what's going on. A russia and siberia in particular is known as one of the coldest places in the world yet each year it experiences more wildfires of increasing severity. This year was the worst. After twenty twelve with more than forty three million acres that seventeen and a half million hector's burned the biggest fires were in the northeastern part of siberia. But they certainly weren't contained to that region thousands of firefighters along with soldiers emergency responders and even agricultural workers have been mobilized to fight the blazes in many places however officials need even more volunteers and financial resources and some fires aren't being fought at all in areas without a lot of infrastructure and few people in settlements authorities are just letting the massive fires burn for the article. This episode is based on house to fork spoke with xenon mova greenpeace russia's fire response project manager whose name i hope i said correctly. She said the problem is that if the fires start in these zones and they don't send any emergency firefighters there. It's much easier to stop it. Then the fire becomes bigger and bigger and the scale become so high that you can't actually stop the fire. According to greenpeace these wildfires should all be fought when they are small so that they don't get out of control and spread unfortunately right now. There is inadequate funding to fight all the fires. Nine out of every ten of these wildfires are caused by human activities. Mova says that includes things like campfires. That aren't put out a sparks from passing coltrane's or old electrical lines breaking the tenth. Common cause of the fires is lightning while human accidents and faulty infrastructure. Don't necessarily have much to do with climate change. The conditions caused by climate change. Make the fires easier to start and make them more severe once they do. Siberia is one of the fastest warming places on earth with average monthly temperatures in twenty twenty averaging more than eighteen degrees fahrenheit that's ten degrees celsius above the average for the period between nineteen eighty one and two thousand ten nova said it's drier it's hotter and there's more lightning in some areas when all these conditions are put together. The possibilities for fires is higher and the possible scale for fire is getting higher increasing potential. Harm that the fire is bringing. In addition helping the fires grow so large and so fast is an infestation of silkworms which kill the trees leaving forests full of dry wood ready to go up in flames. So should the world be worried. Yes according to scientists and activists nearby villages in siberia and that blanketed with toxic. Smoke being the residence end up breathing unhealthy air and living in apocalyptic looking landscapes nasr's moderate resolution imaging spectral radiometer earth monitoring tool showed smoke from the fires reaching all the way to the north pole for possibly the first time in history on august. Sixth of two twenty one along with the damage. These fires can do to the environment. People and wildlife fires also released stored carbon and methane into the atmosphere contributing to the very global warming. That's increasing their frequency and severity in the first place. Roughly sixty five percent of russia is also covered by permafrost as this permafrost thaws due to fires and warming temperatures a soil microbes begin to decompose and release even more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere along with methane a greenhouse gas around thirty times more potent than carbon according to naumova. Not nearly enough is being done. To mitigate these fires she said on the state level. There's still no clear plan to act against fires because of climate change and no clear plan to act against climate change at all. Actually russian president vladimir putin has questioned the science of human climate change before and even emphasized the positive impacts warming. Temperatures could have a for example. He suggested that melting ice means more access to shipping routes and less difficulty searching for minerals oil and gas more recently however putin has acknowledged the connection between the climate change and the growing natural disasters given the catastrophic fire season of twenty twenty one putin announced that funding for firefighting will go up threefold. They're also plans to plant trees in scorched areas. Which nova says is an unnecessary waste of time and money because the forests covered quite well on their own. When people don't get in the way what greenpeace russia would like to see happen is a further increase spending on firefighting an addition. Naumova said they would like to see. Every fire fought from early stages as opposed to leaving some to burn rate. Also want to forbid using fire to clear the land for agriculture and industry. And most of all they want to end risky activities like leaving burning campfires and smoking in the forest and to improve infrastructure that could accidentally start fires to begin with now. Mova said we know that nine out of ten fires happened because of human activities and this means that if we are changing the mindsets and becoming more careful with fires in our normal life in an industrial activities then we actually can minimize this.

"Now says scientists mark herrington. He's been monitoring the fires in kuta via satellite with europe's may not miss feerick monitoring program the emissions with seeing now only two thirds of the way through the season. Those totals actually higher than the full season totals of every other year by two thousand and three. Apart from twenty twenty harrington says emissions from this one region of russia are similar to those from wildfires across north america whether patterns at the top of the globe typically mean that either north america or russia. We'll have a bad wildfire year. Generally kinda works a bit as a coin flip but this year we are seeing fires in just to come. Mccarty directs the geospatial analysis center at miami university in ohio. She says fires are nothing new to siberian forests. But like in north america. The fire season is getting longer seeing fires as early as late. April early may even when they're still ice in the rivers in the lakes and we're seeing fires and extend well into the end of fall and the beginning of winter and so fires are still burning past when the first snow is expected. Permafrost is also changing in siberia and starting to thaw in some places when it does pete partly decayed plant matter that covers the ground in wetlands can thaw and dry out and when it dries. Pete is highly flammable essentially. It's just like those. Pete logs that you go and buy at kroger to throw on your bonfire that is what is burning and then of course as it burns. It can cause more permafrost to thaw and essentially it sets up an area that can then be burned again in the next year. Just how much peatlands are. Drying and burning isn't yet clear. Thomas smith that peatland expert at the london school of economics says it does look like some. Pete is burning. This season videos from yakutia show already burned. Forests still emitting smoke. It appears to be emanating from the ground and that would suggest the soil is on fire. It's very characteristic. Repeat for if you still see the smoke billowing out of the ground in the last two fire seasons smith says about half of the fires were located on peatland but it would take more on the ground research to understand just how much the ground itself is. burning forests can recover from wildfires. Smith says but the problem with fis those zola's taken hundreds of thousands of years to accumulate. And so when you burn the peat soil the carbon dioxide that's produced the greenhouse gases that are produced under the atmosphere and it will be millennia before dot com requested in peat soils if those ever recover in the first place figuring out the extent of the damage in russia will be key to understanding how much these kinds of wildfires are likely to fuel climate change for the world. I'm caroline bueller. it's never been easy to prosecute the people responsible for corruption in guatemala. But the biden administration's efforts to partner with the country and vice president. Come la harasses. Recent travels there were supposed to bolster the rule of law. Well that's not what seems to be happening. In recent days top guatemalan anti corruption prosecutor. Juan francisco sandoval has been sacked this weekend. He and his family fled the country. Slipping across a land border in the early morning hours into el salvador. It's a sort of story former judge klaudia. Escobar knows well threats on her life letter to flee guatemala in two thousand fifteen after she spoke out about corruption in the judiciary cloudy. Thanks very much for joining us today. So prosecutor one francisco son have been called the most visible face in the fight against corruption and guatemala. Tell us a bit about him and why he was fired. Well these sandoval who was the head of the special prosecutor unit that worked together with the international commission against impunity for many years so conferences. 'cause on the has investigate very powerful people from different sectors for more than a decade so sandoval and a caravan of human rights activists diplomats and journalists. They drove across the border to l. salvador in the early morning hours on saturday. Why would he feel like he had to leave under cover of darkness after the attorney general. Fire him without justification. He felt that he was in danger. The people close to him made the decision to protect him and get him out of the country. Because you probably know. This is a region that is controlled by organized crime. He has very powerful enemies. Indie conference and in the past prosecutors and judges have been werther in response to the sacking of sandoval all the. Us government has suspended cooperation with guatemala's attorney general's office. What difference do you think that's going to make so ev- right now. The government of the united states government of obedience stops the aid that it gives to administer portico it can means that the public is not going to have the resources to do the investigation of all the criminal activities that are happening in what the mullahs. So it can have a very serious effect cloudy. How long had one francisco son of all been in his post as the corruption prosecutor when he was fired won't go has more than fifty years in minnesota public or working in different units What do you think it says that. After in the anti-corruption fight for so long he leaves now if somebody like him. That has the recognition as a corruption. Fighter gets fire by the attorney general. The other people that is looking after him. You know that that wants to work in a system. Daddy's broken and want to make a difference is going to think it over. Because he's putting his life at risk for the country and putting the people behind bars people that are destroying our society. I mean it. All comes less than two months after vice president. Kamala harris visited guatemala. And at the time president alejandro jamaa told harris. He was on board with anti corruption efforts and an independent judiciary. So where does this leave the us. Now that this high profile anti-corruption prosecutors been fired. I think that really the us has to take these seriously. Who are the partners in the fight against corruption. Claudia you and your family fled guatemala. In two thousand fifteen. That was after you expose how high ranking guatemalan politicians including the country's vice president. We're taking bribes. What advice would you give one francisco son of all at this presumably very difficult moment for them. Hey yes. I think this is a very hard time for francisco is like being in us nami and waking up the next day and realizing that that you're in a place that you know that the wanna be there but i think that he needs to talk he needs to speak out and speak out with the tools and expose these things that that happened in. What the ma. In this moment cloudy escobar is a former magistrate of the court of appeals guatemala. She was forced to flee the country in two thousand fifteen.

But i literally mean refuge in the dictionary because of the so many things that i experienced growing up incident as a black woman and as christine young women incident during the chew. Grew up here in our too but her family comes from the predominantly christian south in two thousand ten people there declared independence and south sudan became its own country in.

You're someone going to hell because you're not muslim you're not covering up your hair a choose. Says she's forgiven. Those who discriminated against her. She'd rather think about the positive changes that have come since bashir was ousted in two thousand. Nineteen christians are more acknowledged and respected. Nowadays she says we have neighbors who walk in and say all happy christmas or happy easter before they used to think this is haram so there is some change. Some of those changes have come from the top. Christmas is now a national holiday in sudan. Non muslims are allowed to drink alcohol and an old apostasy law was repealed. now it's legal in sudan to even accuse someone of being an infidel or non believer. Here's minister of religion nassir.

Glory winter at the top swimmer from myanmar speaking there with the world patrick win about his decision to not compete at the olympic games in tokyo. North and south korea are speaking again according to reuters today. The two nations are in talks to reopen a joint liaison office that north korea demolished last year. They also reportedly hoped to hold a summit between the leaders of the two nations part of a wider effort to restore relations joining me. Now is jenny town. She's a senior fellow at the simpson center and director of their thirty eight north program. What's your reaction to these developments. Jenin how do you explain the timing. Well i do think anytime we can reopen. Communications channels is a good thing being able to have lines of communication to be able to try and avoid any kind of miss communications mishaps especially in flash points like the dmz. I think you know if it plays well into president moon and condemned guns broader inter-korean peace regime campaign for north korea. Is this just a friendly overture. Does this attempt to reopen communication with south korea suggests some domestic desperation in the north could be mollified with diplomacy. I think that's yet to be seen. I think both of those possibilities are real that there may be some willingness to cooperate especially on humanitarian assistance. Going forward from what. I understand that the situation in north korea is getting. There's a lot of hardship going on now because of the prolonged Or lockdowns so you know. It's hard to get import foodstuffs as well as import inputs like fertilisers stuff to help the crops in This year's crop will matter more than it has in past years so without a mind. We've seen south korean. President moon jae in go down this path of trying to bring all the sides together a similar narrative now or is this different president moon is likely to try again to bring all the parties together in to try and get both. Us dprk in inter-korean relations back on track. I don't know that. That's necessarily the intention of the north koreans in trying to resume some level of talks with the south koreans. But i think president moon does also need to be very careful this time around in managing expectations of what's coming next because it is a political cycle right now with the south korean presidential elections early next year so building up high expectations. That things are going to move very quickly in a positive direction can work against him. If it doesn't work out can work against his party so trying. to build. Too high of expectations on inter-korean relations could be politically damaging to his party. If it doesn't work out looking back to president clinton in the nineteen nineties one white house administration after another have said that the us has to deal with north korean so they can get rid of their nuclear program. Do you have any greater confidence journey. This time under biden. It's going to work certainly not going to be easy. will require as well as concessions on the us side. What is the us willing to do to change north korea's strategic calculus. We oftentimes think too much about north korea as an exception like that. It's odd that they wouldn't want to have better relations with the us that they should be willing to give up their nuclear program to have better relations with the us. But i think you have to ask yourself what causes any country that has nuclear weapons to voluntarily. Relinquish that program. And so. I think until we really solve the broader security situation any administration is going to have a very difficult time trying to incentivize the north koreans to give up their nuclear program.

Here's a novel idea. Make a mess you pay for it. That's a message state of maine ascending to large companies. This month stay passed a law that makes companies pay for the packaging waste. They create nearly a dozen states are on track to follow suit. It's a new idea here in the us but not in europe. Scott casella works on this. He's the ceo and founder of the product stewardship institute in boston so scott. Let's start just to our north inmate. And what exactly does this. New law require companies to do what you hope the outcome is going to be. In essence it requires producers to take raiders on ability for products on the packaging that they put onto the marketplace so from a very basic level. There is a shifting costs from the municipalities and the tax payers are to the producers who put these products onto the marketplace. So for example. The company ships out a tiny widget in giant box. In that company's product is sold in maine what consequences with a company face they will be charged for the material and then there will be extra charges or materials that have extra costs for the recycling system so for example if it is a plastic that has very few markets. They're going to be paying more to put that onto the marketplace. If they put less packaging to the market i if they have refillable containers usable containers or highly recyclable containers. They're actually gonna pay a lot less for those materials. Nearly every country in the european union has a similar law to the one just passing main. What has been the impact on the amount of recycling and waste there. Well there's been a great evolution over the years. I nine hundred ninety four. They started with a european-wide directives. Over time there's been a number of different iterations of that directive that have increased collection in cycling targets overtime incentives to change the design of packaging editors even gone into reducing the environmental and social impacts on nine eu countries where some of this packaging material is processed in the united states. Where at an average rate of thirty two percent across the country for packaging recycling really all the participating countries that ask these types of programs reach at sixty percent with many reaching seventy eighty percent in the one individual after call out. I was your team gordon. Who's the managing director of an organization called expo. They manage or oversee all of the european nonprofit organizations that implement these programs. We've seen a number of countries either limit or stop altogether receiving any recycled trash from the us. Because a lot of it is not recyclable. China did that not long ago. Is that trend. Also driving laws like the one main past absolutely the restriction of our recyclables being accepted in china has definitely catapulted this to the toddler political because the cost of increased so significantly for municipalities many municipalities around. The country had to cut back on what they're electing or some of. You can stop their programs altogether. Scott i'm here. Is your kim. Your contact mentor in. Germany has helped you in your work in the us. So what was his reaction. When he learned you had succeeded with his lawn main media email and he said. Is this really true exclamation anything with real because he and i were going back and forth on this for very long time and Europe his started this program in one thousand nine hundred ninety with german program and here just getting to it in twenty twenty one sky. Cosell's the ceo and founder of the product stewardship institute here in boston. Thanks very much good. thanks for having. We'll be right back. You're listening to the world. I'm marco werman you're with the world me and mar has never won an olympic medal of any kind one athlete. Who hope to change that. Twenty-seven-year-old wind at new. He's a swimmer. Who qualify for tokyo. But he's not there win at who refuses to compete under a flag. That in his words is steeped in my people's blood. Six months ago the military in myanmar staged a coup and since then security forces have killed nearly a thousand civilians and locked up. Thousands more and more is military also took control of its national olympic committee. So athletes need. The blessing of the junta to compete in the games went at youth. Spoke about all this with the world. Southeast asia correspondent patrick. Win win at you. How long have you dreamed of going to the olympics. So i've started something when i was around. Six years. old always dreamt about attending the olympics representing memoir as a summer. It's pretty much been a dream of mine for the last two decades and i've been working towards it fulltime since two thousand sixteen trying to get to tokyo so the coup happened this year ending roughly ten year run of more freedoms more free elections. I know you are based in australia. But how did that affect you. Hit my a hit me and my family very very hard for the last few years. We've been very optimistic. We've been hopeful. I guess we are blinded by hope to believe that we would be democracy. We've became so far and a younger generations especially only new freedoms even though compared to most democracies that was very limited so hit myself pretty hard. You know just knowing that memory just went back years. The country's once again from back in control of the military if the military controls everything even the olympic committee you will never compete in the olympics. Is that right. yeah i. I would only attend the olympic games under an olympic and that the of memoir are proud of and can control. And until. that's the case. I think all me and my assets should not participating in any major international sporting tournaments myanmar under the military did send two athletes to tokyo this year. A woman named tech tattoos are who plays badminton and a pistol shooter. Yea to now and you have said history will judge them. What did you mean by that. The people didn't send them to tokyo. It was a military that did they sent a shooter who whose background is in the navy to tokyo to show that the military is firmly in charge so very symbolic act and for a famous know batman's player like to go to olympics next to this military man i think it's a stain on her reputation as a sportsperson representing I reject her claim that she's doing it for the people as long as she stands next to. You know who's who's colleagues are killing people in our everyday. North korea has gone to the olympics and syria and the united states is committed war crimes to would you have the ioc the international olympic committee bar those countries to. Yes i so i. I don't have the answers to that. Because it's a it's a very difficult question to answer. But i do think that the ifc and the global sports movement including athletes coaches need to sort of envision a future for the olympic that's more humane and trying to use sports really the means for peace settlement and and human rights in making the decision not to go. Is it possible that you have run out of time and you'll never be able to compete in the olympics. Ever yeah definitely. I knew that you know this is this is a. I just lost my only chance at going to the olympics. I'm completely fine with that. Because i- dented with the olympic movement for two decades. But it's not everything in life Now the fight for freedom means a lot more to me than being olympian. And i'd rather be on the side of history of the people fighting for their freedom than no on my on my own side..

We also have seen over the last few years. Very extreme heat waves. In Siberia last year where the temperatures in the Arctic I believe we're over 100 degrees. There was a heatwave in Japan that the Japanese meteorological authorities said couldn't have happened without climate change.

Going from from country to country really looked awesome You know editing the last stage of storytelling. I'm curious what changed about your movie in the editing room and if there any deleted scenes you wanna tell us about you know. It wasn't a long scream. Rip was deleted. You gotta make the scenes come to light you know some real great editors these guy gonna leo stepped opted when he needed to on many scenes that you had to cut that you still miss to cut for time or or clarity or something like that. No big cuts. Who would final cut so make so. Don't have you know it's not a matter of time. I don't think there's anything. I don't remember anything. Maybe i don't remember chris. Them shooting suited no i. I don't recall that anything's okay Yeah i mean. It's not a lot of scenes in the movie. You know what i'm saying. I mean maybe approaches to somebody seems you know i mean we use them in a different way or you know like we had a couple of some kind of you know especially when we're in studio germany. We could you know when you're on top of the mountain. It's.

"Up in mexico. We actually went to la to fight the bear so we need time and money know to do. It took new. I pulled together but we did it. I guess chris. I would ask between those those periods when there was like breaks when you're going from country to country was there any retooling needed on the script. Was there something to kind of you learned. And we're going to get into spoilers in just a second. So i'm i'm just curious where you continuing to write was evolving as you're shooting. No actually. we've ever done that. So you know. I've never more than a i dress of as Whether it's neuro sel tyler. Welcome to new york. But then just doesn't even a debbie. New delhi's won't shoot now. You see where. We're sure you know what i'm saying. So we bus it. Yes but as far as rewrite s- i recall we ever did writes. Am i correct able yet. It's like it's a little too late. I mean you know when you train station. Well yeah yeah right turn you take that training from the top out to get a and then you know. Finish their fucking jet in the middle of nowhere you know next considering in another four hour. I'm not you know by you. Be right now. The place of our discussions over daly's is it what it meant. You know what that scene really was about you. I think we're gonna. It would be impossible to continue without talking spoilers. So although this man yeah. This is kind of spoiler kind. Although this was first seen by people in a virtual screening who had just walked for all of our podcast listeners who have not yet seen siberia press pause. Right here go see you see. Go see it and then come back as the rest of the movie theaters on so yes no seat at home. She didn't movie comeback. And then it gives loud lightning upright. Get on fucking who. We're going to get into the spoilers right now. So so you've been warned folks that haven't seen the movie but so for both of you redemption. It's a thematic that you return to allot in your work And i'm just curious. You know that seems to be to an extent with clink with clint seeks in siberia and. I'm just curious how you guys kind of handled redemption here because it was such a different way of storytelling that. There's there's only you know. Minor victories for clint. Rather than you know. A big redemptive moment so tell us about kind of handling redemption in siberia. Well that's what i was referring to talk about the evolution of ours thinking he may be looking for redemption and he may not He may find it and he may not a. It's almost the idea that i seek salvation. Because i now i will always be denied. It and that was the philosophical premise in siberia behind any specific subject like let's say redemption is not a movie about a guy who goes out looking for himself and finds itself you know he may have found something he may not have saw something And that than kind of borders on what we were referring to before talk about the ultimate nature of reality ba- linguistic games. You know he's around people that don't even speak this language the point being. That's not important because we're all in the prison house of wine and language can only get so far you know. That's why when he talks than magician. He says i hear you know you know the black arts. What is it talking to talk about matching what magic. We'll magic is really the unknowable. How does one know the unknowable. And that's one of the premises that you know able and i were talking about when we're talking about making a film like siberia you know. How do you pick the incomprehensible one of the things that you both captured. So well was the dream state which is very difficult to capture onscreen. And you know we have different periods in a man's life coming back and forth which makes it you know fascinating to watch and it's not an easy thing to do. So what were the challenges of both writing the dream state but also able capturing it on film. I think the opposite i mean film itself is like so conducive to dreams. You're almost you know walking in the movie theatre shutting licensing in or even locking into computer. You're putting yourself and kind of half dream place anyway. See that's what we're referring to when we're talking about well okay. Let's take the dream and how important agreements were in. The in. The film are those dreams. Are they really re-creations. What actually happened in this man's life are they things that he misconstrued. I mean what is a memory you hook memory up and the question. How suspect memory is with how suspect the validity of a dream in terms of thing representing and events. Miss what able refers to even making a film is a dream and then finally what is this guy's consciousness. He's isolating along a lot of reviewers have picked up on that in a big way. Okay but we're all isolated along if we're going to say that our consciousness is part of the space time continuum and that we're creating our own reality. So is this man creating a reality even in his dream. You know as that's an intriguing point and that's why there's so much ambiguity in i i i welcome the ambiguity. We don't see enough of it you know..

"I did three because psychiatrist. Obviously i did three therapy sessions with will dealing with this film and then we would send them to able and that he would kind of incorporate them into his thoughts and his processes. So if you're looking at us in terms of outlines now we don't we don't do outlines immovable for a all right something you'll have a reaction to it. He'll ride something. I'll speak on it and it's really viewing things in a very collaborative way but in a shared vision. I mean that's the best way. I can say it but with siberia. I think we've moved into new territory. There's the story which is compelling and that story's based on somethings that are autobiographical from willem from able from me and then there's the largest slurp with this whole also the whole issue of you know what is reality. You know we have We founded this three or four years ago. We have want them. Physicists now saying that consciousness really creates reality h. and much of that was in siberia. It's interesting that you say that. It started with therapy session. I knew that will was had a fear of dogs. And you put them on literally. Dog sled in this movie around a bunch of dogs was that something that came out of the sessions. Now we really weren't talking about things that weird it was you know wide ranging topics that in some way would impact how we viewed the formulation of this full able when you sit down as a screenwriter. Do you give yourself a page out to hit each day or do you want to write for a certain amount of hours. I about me. Like i'm not really writer. You know what i mean. So it's like it's like. If i get something down on paper that i could show crucible him you know it's like a miracle to me you know what i mean. He's be able to. He's being modest if you look at four forty four tomasso. It's very very modest guy. He's a very good writer. But that's because he has a vision when we were at moment during the retrospective for abel's work. Someone asked him if he do new. Rose hotel the same way and the answer really is no obviously not because sought processes in view of the world wants personal philosophy changes and evolves and siberia's kind of the evolution for me going back to let's say the blackout neurosis towel. Welcome to new york you know. It's it's really tough to get anything fun to these days and i. I was not aware at the time that you guys were doing kickstarter to get siberia going you wound up raising eighteen thousand seven hundred twenty five dollars for all your kid house goal would. We're the three thousand. Five hundred comes on so i mean that was what that was. What the kickstarter numbers said. Well you know these guys got me. Hooked up me. You know to me the concept brilliant you know the people who actually gonna seep gnomes is side which films they wanna. You know what i mean so you buy your ticket advance this way you could. Kinda custom fit the movie. You're to see so to sounded like a brilliant model to me. Okay everybody's telling me it ain't gonna work you know but the thing is just do it and who cares you know. Only i went went into so we We won't you. Can you know. I all the other thing is it was such a nebulous concept. You know you almost got to do it just to figure out what the fuck it is. You know when you start explaining it anyway so we went to Can with with the thing and some kickstarter role fucking psyched up. And you know. I'm like fucking you know. Frontman preaching this light of the gospel and then would the night. We started the first five minutes. We got ten thousand bucks. One guy laid out ten g well in the first five minute. Isis mother fucker. Where's has been my whole life. You know this is like candy from a baby. You know what i'm saying. And i was well anyway like you say six years later we now have eighteen thousand which wouldn't have paid that never mind. Yeah great consulates but you know we. We always get the finance team base financing. Get three different. You know i'm in europe. So it's a socialistic. Deal you know gotten about now. I've been working say twenty years on off here in america. Who would ever go to government for money. I mean i keep the call up obama or a you know asking. Hey chump ask you know but in europe that's how they financed movies. You know because there's supporting work because the supporting the people you know. The people work for socialist country. So we did it with. Italy and germany is a partner in mexico. was he finally countries together. What was the plenty i. you know. i'm not you know okay. You know promised lawyers in the allegations that keep on. Keep my mouth shut. We have the money we needed and we had You know we have the money to do something as you know as ambitious bring in a bunch of people you know up at the top of fucking mountain in italy and then you know we use a lot of that you know The interior the interiors. We wanted to build because we didn't want really based on actual places but we wanted to use the whole distortion trips over in the studio in munich and then we went to mexico to the desert storm. How many how many how many days was the shoot. How how long And probably shut twenty twenty five twenty six long Because like bella tenant we showed say fifteen days. You know tomasa in twelve days so this maybe but it wasn't like twenty-five straight shot. There chilled out. We got together went.

"Give this guy a chance and give this fucking this whole thing. You can't just toss this you know after put it wasn't only it was assured scrimp you know we had the big type to try to make. It seem longer get saying it was like reading the night short could folk him locked in but actually locked into the students once seen a zoe wrote. You know we almost shoot me. Was like zoe wrote this bucket long long. Seen in the confessional. When the the the none was Confessing sin anyway so harvey like locked into that. So as you're as you're rewriting during productions that what was going on there was. There was literal rewrites during production. Because i'm curious what that was like for you as a director. That's not an easy way to shoot now. I mean it's not a matter. We may not need. The scenes will air at harvey's gonna plant. You know. walk in was gonna play that up to like the very end. I mean walking was gonna play the battle tenant. All the rehearsals will with chris so that was a whole other movie. 'cause chris take on saint scenes. Were like some kind of musical comedy next to would harvey's then about two weeks before the film was sitting in sitting at the chateau mohmand with interest. Chris walks in just said zone. Steady says you know. I know exactly what able wants. And i can't give it to him. Thank you so splits k. K. knee with the director fee. Already stent. and you know no movie star. What it's for the best. I tell really made it his. I just wanna know because you know. We've we've run into so many bad cops since that movie and it's always resonated with people as the car scene when he pulls over the two girls and you know the the screen i was at some people got up and walked out because they literally couldn't believe it was happening on scene. I'm curious what it was like filming that going through that kind of scene with tell because you know it was. It was shocking when it came out. I think it's still shocking today. I mean he's doing his thing. You know what i'm saying. It's like you show actually that night were out there in the rain and I hate these hollywood films where it's raining. But none of the actors get what right but harvey one at all if you wanna get wet. And i'm like oh fuck man. Excuse can be one of you. See and i mean like you know. He's got an shell setup and you know and know we didn't have plagued. This was like a street movie but we have played back enough right so we have two cameras jammed in there. There's classical spring like mother focus like the meat market before the meat market. And i'll be just roll suit fucking thing. I can't even see what he's doing. You know what i'm saying. They're going to be getting a shot. You don't wanna be in a reflection. There's no fucking you know. There's no would they have now video tents. Look you know twenty. Everybody's got a fucking you know. See what's going out real dice you know and usually we do one taken that would be it you know and but then we did take and and you know it's always like an blackout where we work with south yet the same thing like the one take like each slated. Then it's tom Let's listen. I was great. Manley was great concern. Let's try it again. Why you know behind excite always. Have i always be prepared for. Why like maybe the doom breaks. Maybe get scratching. The you know what i mean you know. Give some technically y but almost in the same so we did the one you know it was pretty much. Take but i'm figuring. I'm not seeing that clear. You did not really know what's going on. Dp is like he was expecting something else that they can get girls out of the car and the whole deal. But then victor walks up victor argo. You know same victorio. Great victor argo eighty was late. You know and harvey goes with the book man. I just did the puck and see you know and you late you know and then i say he says let's do another one for picture not almost film just like for the fucking performance of it right. I'm thinking thank god. Let's get this. You know i mean you know sit up also like that guy does a ten minute take than everybody goes home tonight. It's like crazy but anyway so then we put victor up with put him up in a chair sue. What's going on now. We like set up the cameras for different angles. Harvey know. did it again. So it's definitely a scene that is is iconic to the film. It's a wild performance again. I could talk more about it. I'm going to move on for second. Chris you weren't they babysitter so stupid in real life. I wanna get into today chris. No one's been able to observe abel's creative habit like you have so up close and personal. What are what are some of the interesting creative habits you've noticed about over the years both as a writer and a director that you found interesting or inspiring or even quirky. He has a grasp of universal wishes. That takes baseball's on philisophical level and also on a human level. So i believe that his you know his vision of things encompasses both and i think that's very important. Because they're very few people never mind directors that can actually do that for instance with the blackout has take on mattie. I mean you know there were so many things going on under the surface and that's how we really connect the talk about that character and the same thing with the willem in new rose hotel Christopher walken new rose hotel able as a great deal of empathy for the human condition but he also delves into and six about and this is why i think siberia zone or there's so many universal issue somebody philosophical issues. That really are the backstory or the subtext of siberia. You know able love want they said to me. Look i wanna do this movie a originally you know. He was motivated or inspired by jones. Read books you're talking about. Carl jung's personal diary which which has been translated into the read books and study of dream on something but actually able with seeing passed. What young was looking at in siberia against so many issues about our vista molecules biscuit logical and even more you know how we view reality. I mean there's a story and then there's all of that and you know able sees these things. And as i said when we were first conversing about it you know it resumes with a lot of the things that i believe and so he doesn't have to take me aside and explain to me what he's trying to do you know i get let's talk about your creative processes writers from moment when you sit down to write how important is outlining to your process and we could start talking about applying this to siberia. Did you do you start with an outline for siberia not really we. We start with a shared vision now. If you want to tell to demonstrate how quirky we are. I did three because psychiatrist. Obviously i did three therapy sessions with will dealing with this.

Before Oprah’s Interview With Harry and Meghan, Royal Accusations Fly
"An escalating royal war of words. And a head of oprah winfrey's interview this sunday with prince harry and meghan markle with here simmons. It looked like a fairytale wedding but even then the duchess of sussex tells oprah winfrey. She felt she'd lost her freedom as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct. That is different than i think what people imagine it to be. It's really liberating able to have the right. And the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes meghan says. She wanted to sit down with okra before the big day. But the palace prevented.

Researchers recover 1-million-year-old mammoth DNA
"You would think after being extinct for thousands of years, mammoths would have no more surprises.
