Eyes And Ears Everywhere: The Russian Spies Among Us
"Also in The Washington Post this morning in the wake of the Ukraine war. The U.S. and allies are hunting down Russian spies. You know, you wonder what the intelligence analyst in Richmond, who was hunting down traditional Roman Catholics at attending Latin mass, might have been doing if they were hunting down Russian spies. Over the past year, as western governments have ramped up weapons deliveries to Ukraine and economic sanctions against Moscow, the post reports. U.S. and European security services have been waging a parallel visible campaign to cripple Russian spy network. The German case detailed above, which also involved the arrest of the senior official in the BND, Germany's foreign intelligence service, followed roll ups of suspected Russian operatives in Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Poland and Slovenia. 400 suspected Russian intelligence agents, many of them with diplomatic cover expelled. So what do you know? The Russians are still spying. The Chinese buy a lot more than the Russians do, but all the bad guys spy and their rains as well. New

"Guy too. So you have someone that's even more elite at that, but with a better understanding of he can play off with someone because we saw with LeBron. LeBron dominated that ball with Kyrie as well, but they had spot moments. And doubts will figure it out, expressing what Jason Kidd at the helm. But it's one of those situations. It's just going to take time for money and it's easy for people to think like, well, they can't because they both need the ball. No, you have one player that understands how to play that role because he's played it before and Kyrie Irving with LeBron James and Cleveland. Now he's bringing a lot of that stuff back to what he was doing. Then now he's going to have to implement it now. I'm just waiting for that first time to look at Holly, Kyrie, 'cause you know Luca be Holland at people. Look here, look here, look here. I could be wrong. You could say that I'd be a presumptuous right now. However, I'll be looking at Kyrie's Twitter account and stuff he's sending. We know the stuff Kyrie's Kyrie some of the stuff. We have ideas of what Kyrie might watch. You know what I'm saying? That's the best way that I'm gonna put it 'cause he watched that one thing. I knew he ain't been on three hours watching that one thing. All I'll say it is with let's just say Slovenia gentlemen starts holiday Kyrie. I don't really so much dough how that right there gonna go over. So you have two things. If he doesn't in Slovenia, he can come up with something and I'm just giving that's my dog. You know, I'm like, yeah, do you think Kyrie? But at the same time, I think the individual that you have to watch in this is Kyrie. Because Kyrie wants people to understand that it was a misunderstanding at Brooklyn. It was a misunderstanding in Boston. It was a misunderstanding in Cleveland. So you're running out of options in saying the misunderstanding. Now you have to perform and be a model citizen. Now being a model citizen is not, it's not something that he can not do, it's just curry. Get back to basketball. Don't worry about anything else. Be who you are on the floor. Because you're running out of time. You're running out of option. You're running out of teams. Only so many times can people say, oh, you know what, hey, he can work in our system. Because coaches have this thought process that, hey, if I work with this guy, I can get him to the place where he can be successful for us. Or, hey, we got to look another direction. Yeah. What worries me now about Kyrie? 'cause I think I don't know if you saw this, but I said it very early that when the hebrews negroes thing, first guy saw it. And I actually have to admit, I hate that that title didn't have rhyming words 'cause I always find myself wanting to say he Bros the negroes, or he brings the negroes, like I think it would make the whole thing a whole lot better if it went there, but you know, he started off so stride and I was like, look, if I'm the next wave of trade Kevin Durant and get started for the future. And keep it real. Near did wade Kyrie. I mean, they got back expensive Dinwiddie Dorian Finney Smith and picks way off into the future, right? Like they in effect gave him awake.

Like you mentioned Him sharing the floor with trey burke a little bit last year. I don't see that happening too much. primarily like running that second unit will be jalen brunson and most mavs fans if not all of them are comfortable with that because we've seen what he can do when we have faith in him.

I mean when you when you're that talented you're gonna be. You're probably gonna handle the ball. But i think at this next level to me i was like what are we.

There still has to be the coach in case that was just jaw dropping amazing and it really doesn't compare to any other cave system i can think of that i have been in and i've been in a number that were equally lovely. I'd say the estonia caves is comparable number of caves. That i've been in although i thought it was really good but the coach in caves was just stunning. And then as you know. I usually ask people one thing that makes them laugh and say only in slovenia as i said i really did have to laugh when i was an injury. And they were saying if the slovenians didn't find a whole they would dig one because there really are a lot of caves and you just kept seeing them in the area and then of course the mining tradition as well so i know that slovenia is getting more tourism. But i honestly don't think it gets the tourism it deserves. It really is a beautiful spot. It's a little more affordable than some of the spots to the west of it like italy it again has a rich history beautiful architecture amazing scenic wonders as we talked about. I would recommend slovenia. And i would recommend it. I think a little higher than i thought i would. I knew i would enjoy it. But i enjoyed it even more than i thought i would. So i would recommend slovenia in this particular itinerary and again. If you're interested in the post that i wrote about slovenia the one that's out there right now you'll find a link in show notes to what to do in slovenia on amateur traveler dot com. Why didn't talk about food. I enjoy the food there. I would say it's almost a combination between some of the slavic food that you get further north and east and italian food and so you'd get things with a lot of pork a lot of meat sauces. I think a typical dish for instance would be an area. You get an. This is not a word. I'm going to be able to say. It skied xlii coffee. Which is a pasta that has shaped as i understand. It like napoleon's hat and it is covered though quite typically with a meat sauce or a mushroom sauce or something like that that seemed like a fairly typical dish. Something with dumplings. Something with a meat sauce is quite common. More fish as you get down to iran for instance Good food hearty food. Though i would say sort of food that would get you through cold winters but tasty number of really delicious types of meals dumpling. something's more like a blitz and again a lot of beat sauces and dairy another weird thing that happened on this tour that i completely forgot about because it's another thing that could not take pictures was that was asked if i was interested in taking a tour of the secret rooms of hotel yama and this is the hotel. The two right there at the estonia caves and it's a historic hotel. It was used as a hotel for tourists.

I would do that. But i would also go up to the castle. There's a castle up on the hill with some of the best views of the lake. Bled castle also has a small museum. It's worth visiting about some of the history of people in the area. People have been in the area since prehistoric time so to that museum. I would do that in go up for the views as well. That's a tannery. We ended up with me on. I really enjoyed it. i would recommend that itinerary. Obviously if you're more interested in the spas and going and having melania keiko put links and the show notes to those particular spots that i didn't go too often the east as well But a beautiful country very very green country. I was driving everywhere as i said. It is a fairly easy country drive in. I didn't find the drivers to be all that aggressive or anything most of the time but it is a hilly windy road kind of place. So if you're not comfortable with wendy roads. I would probably not drive there. It wasn't bad. Highways are very good fairly well marked Was getting by with just a normal. Gps navigation the only trick. I think was what i was going up to the frontier. partisan hospital. My i was navigating with syria and syria was trying to get me all the way up to this secluded secret hospital in a gorge. And of course you can't drive there. You have to stop in a parking lot. So i drove past the parking lot as it was trying to get me there. So there's a couple times where my navigation got me close. And then i just had to ask someone so i had to ask a very curious farmer wireless driving up this mountain. He didn't speak any english. I buy did find quite a few people who did speak english in slovenia like so many smaller countries they don't dub their movies and they don't dubbed their music and things and so you get a lot of english music english movies and things like that so a lot of people spoke very good english. There didn't have any trouble getting by with little to no slovenian language skills and certainly none at all in restaurants and hotels in those sort of places and easy to find tours in english. There are a few places where the information in the museum might only be in slovenian. Although a lot of places it really was in selena and an english and if you had a third language that you spoke you were out of luck..

"Limited window time where you have enough dry hot weather to create salt or to evaporate the salt and turn it into a sellable product. Then you probably know already all of the significance of salt in that time period because it was the only thing that could preserve meat. And that's why we get things like salary in english or being worth your salt because it was a very valuable commodity and this is one of the places that they did that and they still do it. There's still a tradition there where you can watch people say watch you're watching. Water evaporates so you can go to a museum there for instance and learn about the process. Even if you're not interested in salt production this is also an area where you'd see a lot of waterfowl because this is an area that is marshes and such and some of it so puns and someone who is not nowadays one unusual thing. While i was there. I did have a lunch with somebody from a fish farm. There's a commercial fish farm there that you can tour. I did not have time to do it. On this very rapid itinerary. But you can go out there on a boat or even on kayaks out into the bay where they have these large nets where they have fish and they also have information about what they're doing in this commercial fishing process. They're quite proud of it. Because it's one of the ways to be more sustainable getting your fish from someplace local instead of flying in your chilean sea bass. They'll raise ciba's here for instance. You could get cooking classes there as well..

What are Frontier Markets?
"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index. Morocco is twelve percent. Iceland's eight percent. Kenya seven percent. Kazakhstan is seven percent in looking at ways to invest the primary. Etf i found for us based investors is the i shares mci frontier and select emerging market. Etf i'm not sure exactly when i shares renamed it but the largest wait in that. Etf is kuwait at nineteen percent. And as i mentioned kuwait was upgraded from my frontier market to an emerging market.

More needles in the haystack: vaccine candidates proliferate
"Just as soon as it became clear that a novel virus outbreak in china was going to become a global concern. It became clear that the world would need a vaccine in those early days that seemed impossibly distant vaccines often take the better part of a decade to develop and test now just a year on and several are already approved in many jurisdictions then in the space of a day last week encouraging results from two more but in the intervening year. The garona virus has done. What all viruses do. It's mutated and that as a complicating factor to an already complicated global. Rollout out so that you've seen quite exciting. The first is from novak's an american company and the second is from johnson which is belgium. But it's part of johnson and johnson also condruct company. Slovenia jong is our healthcare correspondent. There almost completely effective against the worst cases of covid nineteen. They're also easy to star in regular fridges. Which makes them. Very easy to distribute more widely than the vaccines. We already have approved but they also have some key differences. Okay let's take them in turn. What is the the nova vaccine. So the novak's vaccine is made of a lab made version of the spike protein which is part of the virus so immune system would recognize the and that's how develop immunity against the virus itself. It's a more traditional method vaccine making then the modern in pfizer vaccines which are already being used around the world and the number of vaccine was tested in britain and in south africa in britain it was almost ninety percent effective against symptomatic covid. Nineteen given into shots. Twenty one days. Apart in south africa it was only around fifty to sixty percent effective. Okay and The vaccine the vaccine was also tested in several countries. America south africa and latin america. The youngson vaccine is made out of the pike protein of the virus which is deliberate by virus. That's how it gets into your body. Virus is harmless but your immune system recognizes it. That's how you develop immunity crucially. It's a vaccine now. The results on efficacy are also very encouraging. The vaccine reduced mother of the severe cases of covid nineteen by seventy two percent in america but in south africa. The effectiveness wells also much lower. Same as the novel vaccine. It was just around fifty seven percent. This being said comparing scenes is very tricky because the trials have been conducted at different times so during the and pfizer vaccines when those results came out the variants that we have now weren't circulating widely nonetheless all the vaccines are highly effective in preventing hospitalization and death. And that's the most important thing to keep in mind but both of these vaccines in the trials in south africa. Were less effective suggesting that the that both of them are less effective against the south african variants of the virus. Yes that's right. There are less effective but not ineffective if is around fifty sixty percent which is reasonably good. Say this was to be expected. Because laboratory tests for the and the pfizer vaccines have also hinted that they may be less effective against the variant from south africa. But this will not be the last variance we keep seeing new variants emerging around the world. There may be some that are already here. But they're not detective because not enough sequencing happens in most countries so this is different something that we should be prepared for. But how worrisome is that there is already a very into that is that is sort of unpicking. The efficacy of some of these vaccines mean. This is something that we have to live with. Mutations will continue to evolve and we'll see more like those that vaccines are less effective against several vaccine makers are already working on modified jabs targeting the mutations so we'll see is probably something similar to what we have with the seasonal flu vaccines you get a shot. Every year which is customized circulating strains of the virus. The problem is that with the flu. There are systems around the world that have been set up to track those viruses. lead systems. Are well running. They've been around for decades so vaccine manufacturers no every year which trains to put in the vaccine there is no such system for covid nineteen america and some other countries are setting up variant surveillance. But this is not a global effort which means that we may have very ends emerging around the world for which the existing vaccines are less effective. And we don't know about that and what about in the meantime the existence of these potential new vaccines that seem to be effective and the potential for these various. How does that change the kind of global roll out plans for what we do have and do know eastern you. Vaccines are excellent news because we have a shortage right now of vaccines globally and even in the countries that have the most supplies for the moment. Novak's has promised to deliver about chew billion doses of this year. Half of that will be made in. India johnson johnson also think that they can make a billion doses. This here half of that is going to go to kovacs which is a global facility that will supply vaccines to developing countries. So these vaccines are particularly good news for poorer countries. Because they're easier to store and distribute the johnson and johnson is just a single shot which gives it the massive advantage but of course the country has purchased the vaccine to be delivered and as we can see production. Doesn't always run on schedule. We saw that in in the tussle for vaccine is between the eu and britain. For the astra zeneca shots and then of course getting the vaccine into people's arms also presents. Its own challenges. As we can see particularly in europe and in the us as well sign extend the distribution is often tied up in bureaucracy or logistical challenges on the ground or even in some cases people not wanting the vaccine. Do you think should have taken in total that that essentially this grand will get ahead of the virus before the virus gets ahead of humans efforts. I think we've already made tremendous progress. I mean if you think a year on goal we couldn't even dream of having a vaccine so quickly and now we have at least five vaccines tested in large scale. Proper clinical trials which are vastly effective. I mean they're almost completely effective against hospitalization and death. There are some which are also doing clinical trials so we may see in the coming weeks months more successful. Clinical trials being announced the west production of all these vaccines gets going in the next couple of months. Supplies will be steady. So i think that by the end of this year things will look much much better. Thanks very much for joining us. La thank you jason.
COVID-19 vaccine distribution faces logistical challenges
"Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew mullah my guests today sarah wheaton and dr arthur caplan sarah wheaton chief policy correspondent for politico europe. She joins us from brussels. And autho kaplan is professor of bioethics at new york. University's school of medicine. He joins us from the woods of connecticut. This first part of the show. I want to talk more domestically about what. The responsibilities and duties and possibilities are in terms of vaccinations and how domestic governments go about organizing them the second part of the show. We'll talk more about the global picture. But sarah i'll start with you not withstanding the united kingdom which is actually proceeding with the vaccinations at a reasonably impressive clip. The non uk european countries. Actually being too slow by half they'd seemed to have got off to a very sluggish. Start indeed and it's causing quite a bit of domestic problems around the block and as well it's also calling into question european union's unity in fact. There's a huge blame. Brussels faction basically saying that the eu was too slow to buy doses compared to the united states and the united kingdom on the other hand. You also see that many countries including germany. Which has been one of the most vocal in criticizing. Brussels is not doing a very good job of getting the doses out that they have. is it. just a question of polaroid if you will if we focus on one specific example you look at a country like the netherlands which would appear to have every imaginable advantage. Where doing something like. This is concerned. It is geographically tiny eddies rich. It is well organized you would think vaccinating. The netherlands would be relatively straightforward. Is these things go and yet one. They have barely started and to the government has picked this moment to resign on mass over. Something else entirely right. I think it's really fascinating if you look at the databases that lay out. How countries have been doing with their vaccination. There are some things that show number of doses administered per one hundred. And there's not an obvious pattern so again sort of make sense that you can. Denmark are doing very well but then you have italy. You have spain. You have slovenia and lithuania in the top ten whereas you have big wealthy countries like germany and france and the netherlands as you mentioned doing quite poorly and each country is a precious snowflake with a health system and the value said that really drive this so one of the factors in the netherlands. The case in many countries is at one point. It looked like the astra zeneca vaccine was the front runner that was both the cheapest and the most logistically simple. It doesn't need kind of special freezing transportation so i think the netherlands was a country where they were more banking on that particular shot being the one that was available so they didn't think as much about how they were going to be doing the logistics for a more complicated marnie vaccine in germany. They say actually part of the issue is that germany has many different health insurance systems. And so the data about who actually qualifies for this vaccine is not consistently available whereas in countries like spain and italy. You may be due in certainly in the united kingdom where you have the national health service you have various centralized data system author another thing that countries have had a long time to think about is the order in which they roll the vaccines out. Obviously who gets it i. You can't vaccinate everybody the same week. Does it strike you that. There's much in the way of interesting or indicative divergence in in who is prioritizing. What here in the uk of call us where credit where it's due to the government as we were saying they're doing quite well. They started out with old people. Care homes people with chronic illnesses which might make them more vulnerable. Is that the smart thing to do. I wonder myself with a more thought. Should be given to vaccinating. People like retail workers bus drivers refuse collectors. Delivery people the ones who have to interact with the public and the ones without whom society really would grind to a halt. Yes well we spent an announcement of time in the us arguing over who should go first. Who should go second new should go third lots of categories federal advice flying around about prioritization. But we learned a couple of things once. The vaccine went to the states. They all decided their own priorities. So in some parts of the us prisons and prison staff are being vaccinated in other states. The governors have said no. We're not doing that because they don't like prisoners basically even though that's a high risk population and could be a place where the virus easily spreads back to the community. I've talked to a lot of people who run group homes for intellectually disabled people in nursing homes or care homes but out in the community. They're getting no supply they got forgotten. So i'm lis- despite lots and lots of arguing if you had a clientele of down syndrome individuals. Their death rates are six seven eight times as high as everybody else but somehow the prioritization list so we did spend a lot of time arguing but now we have fifty states with fifty different policies. We've seen a little cheating as a result because when you don't have consistency people start to say that. I'm not gonna follow the rules. So we have people who are rich. Flying to florida to get in line to get vaccinated. Florida per usual doesn't seem to care exactly who's supposed to be a priority. The lord help us to even vaccinating canadians. Their her down there snowbirds so that's causing tension among the locals. But here's the take on less than than i learned. It's great to have these arguments. About who goes i. If your logistics don't work it doesn't matter what your list is if you can't get supply out to the meat packers of the delivery. People are wherever if what we do. Is we send the supply to hospitals and nursing homes or care homes as we've done here that's where the vaccinations occur and those institutions will just vaccinate their employees high risk. Or not is. That's where the refrigerator is. As sarah said it's hard to handle stuff. They're not gonna go running down the street looking for the next category person to give it to so logistics as much as ethics or laying out priority groups drives distribution

Traveling To Snowdonia
"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay
After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'
"Trump on his way out of office. Populist leaders in Eastern Europe have lost a powerful ally as NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, the president's election loss threatens to isolate those leaders even more. On the day after the U. S election, millions of votes in key swing states were still being counted. And there wasn't a clear winner yet. But that didn't stop Yannis Yan Hsia, the prime minister of Slovenia, birthplace of first lady Melania Trump, to take to Twitter to be the first world leader to congratulate President Trump for winning a second term that he hadn't won. After the election was called for Biden. Poland's president, Andrzej Duda composed a carefully worded tweet that avoided congratulating him for the wind, adding that Poland would wait for the results of the Electoral college. Eastern Europe's populist strongman leaders are having a hard time accepting Trump has lost. I'm not so sure it's a big loss for the populations. I think it's a big loss for the individual leaders. Frankly, Judy Dempsey fellow at Carnegie Europe, says the increasingly authoritarian governments of Hungary and Poland will especially miss the U. S president, who seemed to share their world view. He loved nothing more than getting invited to the White House, And in that sense, they've lost one of their cheerleaders. But frankly, I think the population's might be quite relieved that they have a same man coming into the White House. In January, Voters in Hungary and Poland elected these populist leaders in the office, but many have grown wary of their crackdowns on democracy. So has the European Union. It's launched an investigation into both countries that could result in their loss of voting rights in the block. The post government bet on the wrong horse. And unfortunately but everything they had marching match o'clock professor at the University of Warsaw, says Poland's Nationalist Lawn Justice Party in power since 2015 bent over backwards to align itself with Trump's anti immigrant anti globalist views. Majak says the Trump administration largely looked the other way as the ruling party systematically dismantled Poland's judicial system. And crack down on its free press. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Poles spurred by leaders who came to tighten restrictions on abortion. Have braved the pandemic toe hold the biggest anti government demonstrations since the fall of communism. Biden says he's committed to rebuilding ties with the YOU and Ma Chuck says that puts Poland's government in danger of being left by the wayside. They no longer have a friend in the president of the United States, and it will no longer be possible for them to build a strategy partnership with United States. With the politics they have in Poland, so I think it is going to be a huge problem for them, not Jack says Poland is left with only two potential friends in the region, The UK, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson has jettisoned his country from the EU and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has consolidated power in himself and his Nationalist Party. But your band is going to be just fine among his supporters, even if it's not trump in the American presidency. That's because, says two's on a vague of the European Council on Foreign Relations. Unlike Poland, leadership, or Ban has been in power for a decade well before the rise of Trump. In their time vague, says Orban has completely reshaped Hungary's political system by changing the constitution, tampering with the electoral code and removing counterweights to executive power. Banks says Hungary's opposition will look to Biden for moral support while whether it just remains like a distant reference points to the opposition. That okay, we can Look at the Westin See that change is possible. Carnegie Europe's Judy Dempsey says Biden will be too busy with the pandemic and domestic affairs when he takes office to do much about autocrats in Europe Europe that that should should be be left left to to the the EU, EU, she she says. says. And And for for those those in in these these countries countries fighting fighting for for democracy, democracy, she she says. says. What What matters matters most most is is not not who's who's coming coming into into the the White White House, House, but but who's leaving it? Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin

War Mr Pompeo's visits is taking in the Czech Republic Austria, Poland, and Slovenia. This is what he said yesterday. The contrast between free and unfree society has never been clear. Free nations must work together to confront authoritarian threats. Chief among those threats is the Chinese Communist Party and its drive to control people and information at our economies. When a Balkans correspondent guided Loni has been following his journey. Welcome back to the program guy good to have you with us. I wipe out the with Slovenia with no disrespect obviously to the nation itself. I think far enough I mean it's only two million people live here. So it's not exactly huge, but it is a NATO member and there is a family connection of course, Emma and Mr. Pompeo made that point in his opening remarks saying that he brought greetings for Melania trump who is noticeably absent from her homeland. She was born in San Nitsa as Melania canals and she doesn't come back here very often. But Mr Pompey's said she was very envious about him visiting nurse Levin in particular Lake bled where he was doing his news conference but. The rather factors as well. So Slovenia is at at the moment and this is I wouldn't say was out of character, but it's just a matter of where how the political winds blowing here at the moment at the moment in the Prime Minister's office you've got somebody who thinks Mr trump is rather smashing fallow where prime, minister. Yannis Yansha uses twitter almost as enthusiastically as MR trump and spends quite a lot of that time. Enthusiastically, retweeting Mr Trump's tweets. So if you're going to have a friendly audience in Europe at the moment of your representative of the trump administration then Slovenia's an office place to stop off so more than simply passing on greetings from floaters and enjoying a slap up lunch at Lake bled we've just heard there a clip from Secretary of State Pompeo. Making China the real focus of his visit. He really did, and you only speak for about three or four minutes yesterday bend and I think at least two and a half of those minutes were spent really having a good old dig on against China before that. He was speaking about well, he was actually signing a declaration with the Foreign Minister of Slovenia about five G. Security, and this is all part of pushing what the trump administration calls. They're clean network program, and this is an attack on Chinese. Telecom. Companies Chinese tech companies hallway in particular Zeti threatening for the Balkan they've both been very high profile targets of the trump administration and leave you signing up to this five of this clean network program. You'll basically making a commitment, you'll knocking to use any untrustworthy. Vendors in your five G. Systems and the United States is saying it wouldn't have any of these vendors anywhere near any of its embassies went allowed anywhere near any of this State Department. Systems. A lot of come countries, of course are not signing up to this, but Slovenia has and it's got its five G. Network installed by. As of last month, take that way well has replied China Chinese commentators of wounded central and eastern Europe shouldn't be fooled. What would describes Mike pompeo embracing an entirely entirely cold war mindset it is. It is a dangerous thing. Isn't it when you start going into the likes of the Czech, Republic and Poland and Slovenia, and START TALKING ABOUT IDEOLOGICAL THREATS Yes I'm you know he really has gone the full evil empire on? Am You when you talk about Cold War rhetoric either way that he's he's talking really as I mean, as you heard in the clip there, it sounds like something from the nineteen eighties a talks again chief among these threats as the. Chinese. Communist. Party. It's drive to control people and. Information and our economies, and it's it's again talking about freedom loving people and becoming a five G. Clean country as Slovenia has done today as solidifies staff position. In this fight, the tide is turning against the Chinese Communist Party in its efforts to restrict freedom for all of us and I think what's interesting guys of course he's not saying China he's specifically saying. The Chinese Communist, party so he's criticizing the the system of government and control rather than country and the people itself, and that's I suppose the GATT out card But this is the way that the trump administration is going I recommend everyone to have a a good read of the clean network program just to see what they're saying in that and. Quite apart from anything else it does make it clear and not that it's part of the trump administration's drive and it's very interesting phrasing not the United States, not the State Department but the trump administration. So a spot of electioneering perhaps

The Hidden Gem That Is Uruguay With Karen Higgs
"Hel Lo travel nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less I'm your host, Travis Sherry, and joining me today is someone who used to sing sixties covers in the psychedelic rock bar and Costa Rica whose hometown is roughly eight thousand miles from where she now lives and who is the only urguay guidebook. Lives they're carrying Hague's from Guru, Guay Dot Com Karen, thanks for joining me and a huge. Welcome. I was so excited to hear what you're going to take out of my via. Those good with those those. Highlights there. Right I. Love that I mean I think you're probably the only person. I've ever introduced that sung sixties covers in the Psychedelic Rock Barn Costa Rica Wall the only one who's intro involved. I'm sure other guests have done it because who has right? Exactly that's kind of par for the course if you're a traveler I want to start out, could you were talking about one of my favorite countries in the world but somewhere, I've never been so little known fact or maybe not that little known if you used to follow way back in the day. Karen I said that my two favourite countries in the world were Slovenia an Erg Urguay but I had never been to either one I've now been to Slovenia but I haven't been to. Uruguay. So I am very excited to chat with you I'm I'm totally shocked what why Uruguay can I ask my? So I think just when I started traveling, I looked at a map and was like, don't like what I'm taking I was kind of like entire nation is going to be taken back. There you go. I looked at a map and I remember thinking. Like where are the hidden gems? Hidden Gems when they travel and so oh, Brazil Argentina and I remember I and I liked soccer slash football and. Howard now I'm understanding more. Colors, the light blue I like Diego Forlan, and so I just remember thinking that would be a coup country to go because everyone goes to Argentina everyone goes to Brazil. I want to go there and Slovenia same kind of thing this tiny country tucked in amongst kind what you would call like tourist powerhouses of Italy and stuff like that and. Yeah I just so for me, it was like those are the two that I just I thought they use are going to be it and have been something. We haven't made it yet. Then that is a good question well. Yet to give you a little bit of background, my wife and I wanted to come to South America for quite a while. So let's say five six years where we've really been like South America let's go. We've still never touch the continent. One of the reasons was we are not and naturally very cautious people but because we were trying to have kids and Zeke was happening and all that kind of stuff especially down in Brazil we kind of thought well, we can put it off like if we don't have to go and I know Uruguay was not Zico hotbed. But of course, if we go there, we wanted to go to Argentina Brazil. So we kinda just kept putting it off, putting it off, putting it off. And now we're recording during covert times if you're listening in the future hopefully, you're out of it by then. But yeah. Now, of course, as an American can't really go there. So. I would have if you had spoken to me five or six years ago than I would have said to you that you have to come anyway for your entire vacations to Uruguay 'cause there's so much to do and enough of people thinking that it says side from Argentina or Brazil. Okay. So I would have said that immediately and I also would have said to you that you know Zeka. Zero cases here and that Uruguay has great public health policies, and in fact, right now we are kind of like one the stock countries in Latin America regarding the virus
