"President biden met with ceos from disney microsoft walgreens and other companies at the white house to discuss the cove in nineteen mandates. His administration plans to put into effect for companies with one hundred employees or more on the look forward to working together to beat this pandemic keep our economy growing and growing strong. Many companies already have their own plans in place but biden's announcement last week has been met with mixed reactions from the business community and the plan is also facing legal challenges from republican governors. Twenty me now with more on sentiment around the mandates is wall street journal white house reporter. Sabrina siddiqi hi sabrina. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me so sabrina. Despite criticism of this mandate president biden has been strongly defending it. so let's start with businesses. Who are on board. What have you been hearing from the ceos of those companies abou- why they're choosing to go along with the president's plan. Well it's interesting. Because i spoke with the ceo of columbia. Sports where tim boyle and he said that the company had actually been debating internally whether or not to have more strict vaccination requirements they had just been encouraging employees to get vaccinated but didn't make it a mandate or a requirement of any kind and. He said that part of a concern about requirements was that employees who did not want to get vaccinated. Might just go seek employment elsewhere and so what the columbia sportswear ceo. Tim boyle said was now that the president is creating a standard across all businesses with more than one hundred employees. It kind of levels the playing field and so employees will know that this is actually going to be a requirement across the board and not just at their place of work. Sabrina what businesses who are opposing. This we know there are many factors. That ceo's are weighing right. Now what have you heard from businesses. Who are not in favor of these mandates. Well there's some businesses who say that they don't believe it is the role of the federal government to determine whether or not employees should be vaccinated. There are others who are worried about. What the specifics might look like. When it comes to exemptions the administration has signaled that there will be perhaps some exemptions on a medical basis perhaps on religious grounds but it can be a bit of a slippery slope in dictating what that might look like. And i think that some of that really depends on how they draft the rule that will ultimately give us some more of a sense of how this will be implemented so some businesses are religious in a wait and see mode. I know the chamber of commerce which obviously represents a lot of businesses across the country. They say that they're actually just waiting for this rule because they want to better understand how these businesses will have to implement it. What kind of exemptions will be in place and we know. This issue has also divided labor unions. Sabrina are we seeing a split among certain industries or sectors of the economy as far as which are opposed in which are in favor. Well i think it's more so that labor unions have had a mixed reaction more so in terms of how this announcement was made. So you know. The nation's largest labor organization the afl cio has actually supported the president's vaccination requirements but another group the american federation of government employees said that vaccination requirements should be negotiated with unions. So i think it's more of a concern. You're seeing from some labor groups that union's bargaining units have not necessarily been part of this conversation and one example is tyson foods company large company that did in fact put in place vaccination requirements. They actually struck a deal with their labor union when they had come up with what the scope of those vaccination requirements would look like so i think for labor unions. It's more that you're hearing that some would have rather had a seat at the table. Not necessarily that. They oppose the requirements but perhaps want more input in this process. We're now seeing vaccine. Mandates in schools universities certain hospital groups. We're is public sentiment right now on vaccine mandates. It's interesting because this is obviously also a big political fight right. You have a number of republican governors out. The gate have criticized the vaccination requirements as government overreach and are kind of leaning into this political battle once again about covert requirements in where they might go too far but actually there are some recent polls showing that a majority of americans do support some type of vaccination requirements and specifically where you see that support according to at least a two new or more. Recent surveys is a vaccination requirements in order to return to the workplace fifty nine percent of remote workers according to the associated press poll said they favor of vaccination requirements in their own workplace. And then there are also some surveys showing that a majority of americans support vaccination requirements for students who are returning to class in person. So that's another piece of this puzzle. That i think the white house is trying to emphasize. It's not just the business sector. it's hospital groups. It's all of these different pillars that really represent. I think the country kind of going back to normal who really need to see vaccination rates take up in order for there to finally be some kind of light at the end of the tunnel here wall street journal white house reporter. Sabrina siddiqi sabrina. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thank you and.

We had the same duties as the us army hat and we wanted to the front liner we went to you know district inter district's talking took people and explaining your needs in enterpreneur needs and in new door. You know adored soldiers so we were the front liner all the time. As you're explaining that as you're telling me that i i guess i'm wondering Did you all know in advance about the given. How how closely embedded you were. You were fighting side by side that you were one force. Did you know that the troops were being pulled out. And how swiftly would happen. Nobody knows him back time. But after twenty. Four gene Everybody you know when the us started withdrawal of aghanistan and everybody. You got the concern.

Interpreters have been jailed since two thousand sixteen in that list of admiral. If you grew up you on elevates if we don't get this right house is going to affect the us being able to convince others in other nations to serve in this role in the future. Well if we keep our amazon lower integrity will be under question. We promise our allies we. We will pull you out with us. Lula bring you home safely. But if we don't keep our promise so we lose our our word our promise that we we meet with our allies and nobody in the future might not work. What our forces amadullah siddiqi former afghan interpreter and siv ambassador with no one left behind. Thank you so much for joining us on the takeaway. Thank you so much. Because of our recent military gains in much of afghanistan women are no longer imprisoned in their homes. And that's former first lady. Laura bush speaking in november two thousand one after the us invaded afghanistan the justification for the post nine eleven invasion of afghanistan was framed in part as an imperative to rescue women in the country. While there's no question that the taliban severely restricted the rights of afghan girls and women. There's also little evidence that u. s. military intervention has made meaningful improvements in women's lives. Indeed two decades of war have deepened vulnerability and made women's lives more precarious. The taliban now controls more territory in afghanistan than they did in two thousand one and is the final. Us troops withdraw. There are few measurable improvements in the lives of women here to discuss the possibility of genuinely feminist foreign policy ishra chatrapati a reporter and researcher at the new republic contributor to the nation. Nice to have you for having me so raya your recent article titled as the. Us use afghantistan anywhere. Feminists push a new approach to foreign policy. Talk to us about what a new approach to foreign policy might look like in just broad strokes so generally the feminists peace initiative which i wrote about seeks fundamental reorientation of us foreign policy one. That's opposed to us military intervention in all its forms. So broadly that looks like defunding. The military along with police jails and prisons and detention centers organizing against u. s. military intervention. In all its forms. And that actually includes opposing sanctions and other forms of economic coercion which the writers of the feminist peace initiative see as a former of us military violence and also it takes the ideals of collective care and reparations and includes out also in what foreign policy looks like asking the united states to take actions that reverse and repair the harm that it's caused both by invading gets forms of neo imperialism and so that looks like putting money to aid where before it would have gone to military intervention and broadly like the goal is to achieve global feminists democracy which lar- swami one of my sources told me is essentially about self determination so a feminist foreign policy is really looking for a very fundamental redistribution of political economic power as well as priorities on behalf of the united states but also on behalf of feminist activists who are pressuring the government and pressuring on governmental actors. So help me to understand a bit. 'cause i on the one hand love the vision of this self-determined aspect kind of notion of a feminist world order. I know that's not quite what it's called but but help me to understand whether from that perspective of the folks who you interviewed and talked with if the goal isn't interventionist. Us foreign policy. Clearly not one that is about war but isn't interventionist or is it a bit more hands off so it's hands off in terms of us. Military presence in so in the context of afghanistan. Part of that is looking at okay. So by is removing troops on the ground but the extent of the full military withdrawals unclear right so in in may the wall street journal reported that the administration was looking for other locations around the region to store drones bombs artillery to shore up the afghan government. You know in two thousand seventeen. Us relax its rules of engagement for airstrikes in afghanistan and the number of civilians killed by those airstrikes increased by three hundred thirty percent. So i think. Part of like the a non-interventionist element of it is very much like making sure that it's not just troops on the ground. All military presence is fully withdrawn the flip side of that is recognizing that the united states does responsibility for its past actions so i think the more interventionist element would be less in terms of how foreign policies usually talked about and more in the context of reinvesting the funding formerly used for war into peace building into supporting afghan civil society into supporting the human rights demands of afghan women. You know biden has recently requested an additional three hundred million dollars in aid to afghanistan. And so i think it's pushing for more things like that unless less things like maintaining a military presence in the region even if troops are on the ground. Right that's helpful. Let's also just kind of make this as concrete for folks as possible because as reading your piece. I was thinking of how over the course of two decade war. It has been easy to lose focus. On what even the discourse or the language was about why we claimed we were going in so just talk me through what women in afghanistan phase right now in terms of particular isues dangers restrictions related to the taliban.

There Brian Bennett Creator of them and he he just writer just came with something. So fresh and so new and just made him so much more than just being a black spiderman. It's historians really fantastic. Really Great. Of Miles Morales to is that he's the second Spiderman. You know what I mean like there hasn't been. There's been other superman. There's been a another Batman forever miles legit the second spiderman ever ask yourself something big with that as well. You know there's been many. Green Lanterns. But there's something really unique about that. Is that Miles Morales came. Decades after Peter Parker ever existed. Yeah. Everybody was getting mileage Peter Parker, and then it was well miles morales and he's the second one. So that's fantastic. So I highly recommend I can give you some some books to read by twitter whatever give you a there's some that you should just avoid because there are great. For the most part, he's entrance and then love Kat Moody is fantastic. What does it mean you also in your show? Give a shout marble. Mom and it just so happened like the marvel cinematic universe, his models coming. played by a local Toronto. Girl that's awesome I. Love. Does for you guys does representation. Matter as much to you guys as it does to. Like the kids out there what are your thoughts on that? Those really inter- I've thought a lot about this because Kamala Khan didn't wasn't around when I was a kid. and. She has only been around since I've been a grown man. So all my influences were white you know they were I'm a nerd but every I love Peter Parker, I love Bruce Wayne I i. Love Mad Max but these are all white people I never really. I thought about it that way. 'cause you're young right but I guess when you're older, there's a lot of retro-activity that goes on when you go. Oh, I didn't I guess I couldn't fully. Connect with this character as much as I wanted to. You know someone who's White could see Peter Parker and go. I'm not necessarily a small nerd but I'm white. So I got that. But so I think there's something there. There's I'm not I'm not a young teenage girl but. I know what? It's like to say, the morning prayer and evening prayer and have your dad. You know go like you know I'm only want the best for you come on come on you have to do your studies. Yes. So there's so much there and the fact that she's Muslim. That's a big thing also in the in the Comic Book Universe don't really deal with religion a lot but you know Islam is. The biggest religion in the world. I believe I think? But it's it I think it matters now to see to know that little. I mean in the Book Kamala looks exactly like my sister when we were kids. Now that she's going to be real, it's also not that I have like ninety nine played the marvel avengers video game, and she's the main character in the video game. He Calls Her Dad Abhu and she said, you know he's in Charlotte certain point. So it's just like these are things that hit so hard and so close that. I think it's so awesome. I think. So defining wicked to see finally you know it's it's so specific, but it's so meaningful. Interesting neither your thoughts you play you played Black Panther in. With an old friend of my Sean Ward Oh. Yeah. Amazing. Yeah. Yeah. That's what I was really funding making Matara video. Listen Man Like I mentioned before because I'm the Comic Book Guy, it's like I've been reading and. Reading conflict since I've been a kid a little little kid like as I could I could. I could draw before I could read that fact my parents and told me A. Story, a million times I was fascinated with illustrators and the pictures. And to that point, he was like, well, who is out there that's like me at this point. So at this point I, mean there's Black Panther, but he at the time he was so intense like you just like the character. So deep that I didn't get a good understanding of what he meant an of who he was. Fighting with the fantastic four, that's how he's introduced in the vendors. And then I'm finding characters like you know. In my brain, I'm watching transformers and I'm like jazz for sure as a black guy. Or watching thunder cats listen. Panther. Cats. Watching on the go even deeper watching silver hawks there's they introduce a character. I believe in the first season but he's like way deep in episodes that character's name is hot wings. And he's a black car and as kind of gold hot way listen my point is. Is that. I had to find these other characters and felt very sometimes it so. At the time I didn't know the word but felt token Eiser felt like they were just kind of put in there like, Oh, well, here's the black guy. Here's a black person, a person of color. So growing can getting older and then reading more books and I'm seeing I'm like, oh, those are still the same characters. There's there was no, there's no real addition to these characters. So now as I'm getting to be you know man. We're seeing that these characters on not only put there as part of the team or leaders of teams. But. They have more depth to them and are therefore reason it's not like they're just thrown into the part of the team anymore you know what I mean. So when with with Black Panther I mean we have characters like you know vixen we have John. Stewart who's out one of the green lantern. Corps we have all these other characters that can support and can and have had their own titles. So it means a lot to go to the theater or to read a book now has a character feature or even a roads. Salute roads. He played war-machine. Don cheadle played him in the movies. So it's like it feels coming out to read a book or to watch something or to play games like Chris was saying we can play and it's like Chris these references that I don't and I love it. I. Loaned that finally there is characters that can speak to different cultures and ethnishity. Yeah, and captain. Yeah. Yes. That same Wilson, which is Falcon the Falcon exactly. That's that's wild in the US today? America. Well I mean the show has Komo yet. So Elsie are those. Rising man. True true was was we'll see what happens. Let's let's let's let's out.

2020 DNC begins with big adjustments forced by pandemic

"As the Democratic Convention Begins Today a New Wall Street Journal NBC News Poll Shows, Joe Biden holding his lead over president trump nationally the poll gives biden fifty percent compared to president trump at forty one percent WSJ's editor errands. Inner fees are pole. The Pole does include some caution signs for Mr Biden more voters have negative view of him than a positive one and it's been that way for about a year in addition fifty, eight percent of voters who say they'll back Mr Biden say that their vote is more in opposition to president trump than it is in favor of Joe Biden. That's a potential sign of softness in his support. UNDIS- first night of the convention, we'll hear from former first lady Michelle Obama Senator Bernie Sanders and governor Andrew Cuomo. It's a convention like nine other as the pandemic has made typical proceedings impossible for a closer look at what we can expect joined by national political reporter Sabrina Siddiqi Sabrina? We're glad you're here both much having me. Let's talk about the week ahead. This is an untraditional venue, a whole new set of challenges. What is the number one goal? The number one task for the DNC this week I think the number one task is to make a clear and coherent case for why voters should house president trump from the white, house if you are. Former, vice president Joe Biden. And Senator Kamala Harris, his newly minted running mate as well as a lot of the prominent Democrats who are lined up to speak you are addressing the American public at a time when they have been in the midst of a pandemic for a period of more than five months their entire lives have been sidetracked by the coronavirus, and this is really an opportunity because the public will be tuning into the election for the first time in a release significant way since we got into the general election. Portion of the cycle to make the case for why they should put Joe Biden in the White House this is really that opportunity to talk about the impact of the pandemic, the president's handling of the pandemic and to also present. What they've been trying to do, which is this message around unity and restoring stability and normalcy to the Government Sabrina. Looking back to last week when Vice President Biden and Senator Harris had their first joint appearance together they were wearing face masks, they socially distance to an extent. How do you portray or convey chemistry and warmth to voters when there are such restrictions in place that's going to be released striking to watch because typically you see the vice presidential nominee, take the stage with the presidential nominee, lift their arms in the air. The balloons are dropping the families are onstage. Sometimes the former primary rivals are very to project this idea of unity. You're not going to have that Democrats have been very clear and Joe Biden cited again when he took the stage with Comma Harris last week that they are listening to the science they are biding by social distance requirements because they want. To take seriously the consequences of the pandemic, but it does very much changed the mood and you think about how former President Obama will be speaking his camaraderie with his former vice president. Joe Biden was very popular with the public because they were very close in that banter that you would often see at live events between the two maybe they'll be taking place over zoom. There's a lot that we don't know clearly, there has been a lot of work that's going into this. They've had months to prepare for this inevitability, and so a lot of the focus will now be on just how well they execute. A large scale event like a party convention in the middle of a global pandemic Sabrina let's talk about messaging. Is it simply going to be about a referendum on President trump or? Harris GonNa talk about her life story. Where's this balance GONNA take place? So it's been clear from the outset of Joe. Biden's campaign that he sees. This election is a referendum on president trump would have been fascinating to watch is that he launched his campaign with this idea that? The American public wants a return to normal. Stability, and they're not seeking a revolution in not seeking a movement and it's clear poll after poll that the American public does see this election as a referendum on president trump, you've seen the president's approval ratings dip during the pandemic, and so I think a lot of the messaging from Biden from Senator Kamala Harris the vice presidential nominee is really going to center on what the last four years have looked like under this president and particularly. Honing in on the coronavirus pandemic and what they say is a failure on the part of the president to steer the country out of this crisis Sabrina looking at the week ahead, the DNC obviously is going to want to remain focused on its task at had yet. We know the president based off of past history is likely to tweet or issue a statement or give a speech that will create some kind of turbulence. How does the DNC keep its focus? One of the greatest challenges for? Democrats not just since president trump took office but even since he was a candidate for president has been to not. Get baited into playing his game. This president is a master of. Changing the news cycle within a second and overtaking events with a controversial remark or tweet. And for Democrats, the goal will be to stay on message. They have had a very. Consistent message especially around the president's handling of the coronavirus in the course of the last few months but. If you're at the Democratic Party for Joe Biden for La- Harris you've got a plan and you go out and you execute that plan regardless of what the president is saying or tweeting on a given day.

Ayesha Siddiqi Talks Politics, Being American and Celebrating Halloween

"Coming on our hot topic let's talk about voting because we had a really great conversation before Easter recording about I mean I didn't mention this earlier but I was also really disengaged from the electoral process after trump got elected so I've been training figure out which is really hard to save because this is what I've put my career behind for the past twenty years to get people out to vote and encourage people to turn out to vote but also at the same time either like element of disbelief in the electoral process and I think it's been really complicated to hold both of these truths at the same time like distress but also I need to go vote because I have to go up newer saying something similarly we can't pretend that the system works yeah we can't pretend that people in this country have a full and total right to vote not with gerrymandering not with voter suppression we need to operate within the reality we have while also working towards the reality we need yeah and that's a difficult thing to turn into a useable soundbite right because it's complicated people get orig- myself included you know because it's work the things that have to be done require real labor and effort and both of those compete with everything else people have to do in their lives so I still WanNa hear about like your experience of being outside of the United States for a little bit I started to spend more and more time outside the US and I found that to be the distance to be quite clarifying and useful to me personally glaring how the perspective is so useful so much my life was determined by the US and it's politics and my own emotional investment in something that was increasingly a toxic experience and I'm not anxious per Jason but I was becoming quite anxious and I didn't like what it was doing to me and I had to remind myself how big the world isn't how many different lives are still possible within it and it's the closest I've come to the way people talk about bad boyfriends or bad breakup feels akin to my experience of America I entered into something new with a lot of love in my heart and with an openness that I was losing and ultimately it is my home I became miss it isn't in two thousand fifteen does right before the trump election cycle And I had the most despair around that time and who finally becoming an official citizen of a country that was so committed to its lies about itself that it would allow massacres before it would allow an open ignition of what this country central project is and how it fails it's people spending time outside the US helped ground me and let me find some peace yes distance as very aware of the luxury that the right to just up and leave a country and go to another because you know you're feeling kind of it's that's such an extreme luxury also very diaspora I left and I came back because this is my home and it's where my family is and I was living with a great deal of anxiety and fear over the violence that could be visited upon us look we're some Muslim violence can be visited upon you anywhere fear is not a useful emotion and my time away helped me reconnect with an actually spending some time with my family where they live help me reconnect with fat I moved back to allay this August and I'm very encouraged by all the people in this country that are organized thing in working to make it a more habitable one in speaking family in where you were raised I remember you telling me a fond Wean Memories Oh my first Halloween America and this is the month of fear I'm really curious to hear because you have really fond memories of Wayne and it's such a funny holiday I mean I always say you should live every day like it's Halloween by which I mean I like to take long walks at night and Gandhi nice way to think about Halloween my very first Halloween families first Halloween was shortly after we'd move to America what year is this nineteen ninety-six so we had no concept dove it until when our first nights in our little apartment we Scott into your knock on the door and I was a little kid I realize now in retrospect they're probably just teenagers but to me these very tall individuals dressed very aggressively like monsters smart as right there next to him probably six six years old head of the household it's just a joke I'm sure my take issue with that characterization did you have the candy ready for these monsters that's the thing of course not we had no idea that there is anything expected so we answered the door and both parties on either side of the doorway are confused right there waiting this image of confused monsters staring at US allier waiting we're waiting they're waiting yeah eventually is communicated to us you're supposed to give us candy like Oh okay so he goes inside read that's so funny and you know as a house of two young kids my little brother hadn't been born yet find some crunch bars crunch bars you like in the House so give them the candy and they're like thank you know I think there are minis then they left and we all learned something that day only the exchange expected on Halloween now here's the funny thing it took years for my father in particular to embrace this concept because he loved to give out candy really the idea of his children going door to door begging ono there's a little kid there's still a novelty to being out that late at night and he was so offended at the concept you just I just don't understand why you need to can get you can if you can you can go right now get as much candy as you want bagging and he would he would go out and buy candy and he would get so frustrated that we still Saddam trick or treating and one year we put a pirate how on him and took him with us I think he better understood the appeal then it was just an walk with his kids ends is Johnny sensibilities which I understand entirely now but okay after ask what did you wear like the first time you went trick or treating what was allowed well so most costumes in stores were like very cheaply made and not very attractive being Boccassini appear into be an exotic costume to our white neighbors was our traditional focus on your first year we my sister and I dressed as pirates actually related story bought costumes because that is where the we eventually quest to my father came from and in the years after that I mean once we've done that we weren't as keen. Yeah so you've got you've got it a little easier at the store by I wasn't my parents did not want to spend money on Halloween and we you had the they see clothes but my mom just took the scarf wrapped around my head and called me a gypsy so getting variations of leg taking close interning in two different things princess princess that was the thing so for any like school function requiring a Halloween costume that was it I was like very pleased to show off the intricate embroidery or the fancy silks and I thought like you know very Gauche polyester that might classmates war was I wasn't interested in

I'm Tracey Samuelson in for Molly would. The ride hailing platform lift good public today. Ahead of Uber, which is expected to list in the coming weeks drivers from both companies went on strike in southern California. Earlier this week to protest changes in how their pay is calculated which they say amounts to a pay cut. Now, these drivers are contractors. They're not employee's. That's a key part of lifts business model, but it's reliance on drivers is also a risk factor lift mentioned in its paperwork to go public others include new regulations or the possibility it will never be profitable for every dollar revenue. The company brings in it actually winds up forty cents in the red still lift has been able to pick up more riders in the last couple of years. Thanks in part to big public. Stumbles by Uber which prompted some users to look for alternatives. I asked says Siddiqi a tech reporter covering transit for the Washington Post wear lift goes from here lift is sort of billing itself as the nice guy of the ride hailing ups even on the heels of some of that. Backlash against Uber. Lift undertook, these beano these social campaigns charitable giving, you know, where you could take a ride and donate a certain portion of that fair to a charity. So I think lifts continues to try to capitalize on that image. Whether that works out for them in the end remains to be seen. But certainly they're going to keep pushing that message, right? We saw this week some drivers protesting pay cuts, and there is sort of baked into this model into lifts business model kind of tension between the the worker contractor the drivers and the company. Yeah. I mean look lifts ultimate their end goal. Here is you know, going driverless. And once they do that, you know, you can give rides sort of on the cheap. I've heard in the range of twenty cents a mile. So it it seems like the companies. Can achieve profitability at that point. Yeah. I mean, you know, the you mentioned the the goal of going driverless. So we know what what lifts does today. We know that it it's, you know, a an app that links passengers and drivers for on demand rides. But what lift could become whether it's driverless or perhaps, you know, a more regulated company. We don't really know. Right. So so what are investors buying in this IPO? They're sort of buying hope, you know, the consistent line that I've gotten from investors is somewhere between you know. Why would you ever invest to do invest? It's potentially really lucrative. But don't put all your eggs in one basket. What's left gonna use the money for? That's the question. You know with the company like tesla, you go public. You have the money to do something like build a consumer passenger vehicle like the model three with the new left. The question is does this mean like the era of investor? Subsidised fares, you know, that are maybe super cheap, those are those fares over my sense is no, but it could be sort of the beginning of that transition. And when you look at the risks facing the company other potential headwinds how big a factor. Do you think labor is in terms of drivers organizing or potentially, you know, a court ruling that drivers are employees not contractors yet? Those things are huge, you know, that's sort of the core of their overhead costs, you know. They don't they don't really have, you know, fleets of cars that they operate with some exceptions is. So drivers are the key question here. And if anything happens to change the status of drivers from contractors to employees, if there's court ruling that mandates, you know, better treatment of dry. Drivers more vestment and drivers a living wage. Those would be potentially massive for a company that relies on this type of model fezzet Iki with the Washington Post city. He said he doesn't expect immediate changes. But lift will face more pressure to be profitable and steady as a public company. Big bold investments, like the bike share company bought last summer might no longer fly. And now for some related links. I mentioned lifts own assessment of the risks it faces they're about a dozen and a half of them rather candidate in the companies registration statement, we've linked to that on our website tech site. The information put together a pay walled list of people who are going to make a lot of money today. A thirty thousand dollar investment in two thousand seven is now worth hundred million dollars, not bad. But what does that kind of wealth due to a city when it's not just lift and Uber employees, but also slack post mates Pinterest and Airbnb the New York Times predicted earlier this month that San Francisco will drown in millionaires.

She is Pakistan's biggest female filmstar, the award winning actress Mahir con. Share the same question to you. For me being a woman in Foxton means that. Against all odds, and there are many I get to and I choose to make my own choices. Because if which and because I'm in a position of power privilege. I think I can have the generations to come in many many ways. So so I think that is what it means for me to be a woman right now currently in Pakistan. It's a great place to be fantastic. Thank you here. Now, we are here in Karachi, one of the world's biggest cities and the first audience question is from Sarah Siddiqi.

That's a really interesting question. And before we answer I went to ask the audience. Okay. So this is your chance to. To hear from you. Do you think there is a negative perception about women who wear the hijab if you agree shout? Yes. If you disagree shout. No. I think the yes is out. I think okay. And I should note that. None of my guests are wearing the hijab. My her. Let's get the perspective from the film world. We shall you present yourself is really important show. So let me get this. Correct. You said that a woman who wears his job is portrayed as under confident. Meanwhile, a woman who doesn't is portrayed as confident. Okay. So this is something that I feel that I have struggled with in the TV industry at least initially where. Yes, we do deal with stereotypes. And by the way, I have to say this, and I'm not being over protective about my country. But Syria types exist in all industries everywhere. I am surprised that Hollywood still works on stereotypes. And it works on it in a very very massive way..
