Solving the mental load update
"When we first spoke about the mental load on this podcast, there was a fringe cartoon cold. You should've asked that was going viral. It explained the mental load with such clarity that when I first saw it, my reaction was fury. I wanted to. Shift to the ground. It showed a woman with a baby and a hapless male partner who was kind, but needed to be told how to help and it so familiar. So common. So exasperating and so profoundly unfair. Journalist, Tracey spicer new. What I was talking about. It was an absolute lightbulb moment for me, I sir, Clementine, Ford's facebook page. I share with everyone and I knew that went viral swear words and it happened in the time when I realized that my life with my wonderful husband who's fifty fifty with the housework fifty, fifty with the childcare, but it was just the little things. I'm always the one who organizes school holiday care or who takes the time to look after the kids or rangers everyone's Christmas presents or birthday present in his extended family and my extended family. So after reading that I, decided to go on strike in the household so he had to do it drove him Berserk. He said this is crazy. Such little school holiday cared Australia. I said now you know my pain. Jenny talk about the mental load in your life. I think when I saw the catching was like, oh, no added that to my mental learn. About. How often I think about the mental load? That's Jenny Leong amp in New South Wales Parliament I was very lucky and I consider it to be like that. My partner was able to access paid parental leave. So he was the primary care for a significant amount of time and in that case he did take the mental Lloyd and a lot of that was then there that the what's interesting is once we're both Both. Back at work where the default position falls back and the expectation of WHO's supposed to know those things to me. Then you feel like part of it is also all of my being bad feminist because of that because I think then adds another level to it to how much you should make a deal of this or not I noticed the gender dynamic with my. Friends that are in. Relationships, they're both men they quite comfortably into stereotypes, gender roles that old without all of the challenges and the. Doctor Leah. Repent on a lecturer in sociology at the University of, Melbourne. She racist as domestic labor, and this idea of the mental load is her field of expertise. I'm going to start and say a little bit controversial. Say That everyone actually carries the mental load. So some portion of your mental load may go to thinking about your career. Some portion of it may go to thinking about your family and some portion of it may be going to thinking about your personal life and the differences, the balance across men and women. So you could imagine men are spending a lot more of their mental load thinking about how do I advance my career thinking about the day to day challenges of work. That is a very different mental load than who is going to pick up the child from daycare. or WHO's GonNa Organize School holidays or who's doing the housework wise. House a mass. And one leads to economic outcome, career mobility and one is just unpaid sometimes recognized sometimes not recognized labor. And I think that's really the difference. How do we shift the ratio? Definitely does seat more with women the. Yeah, I, K-. So we're all in agreement about that. Absolutely. Absolutely, the balance in terms of unpaid in terms of thinking about the experience is disproportionately shouldered by women. Yes. Absolutely. Once, you get your head around the idea of the mental load. You start seeing it everywhere in the lives of your friends, colleagues, your mother, your self. It. Happens to women in all walks of life and age and six urology, but it seems to hit hardest when there's a baby. So. Now, we have a name for the mental load. But. The problem is naming, it doesn't make it go away. As I was sobbing thinking. I used to be able to manage employees teams. And now I'm too overwhelmed to even manage a grocery list. And more importantly. How did I become the default for every single child care and household tasks for my family? It wasn't supposed to happen to me. This is a road ski shades La, and she's written a book called Fairplay, which is all about fairly distributing the mental load aves marriage nearly ended when her husband center, it takes saying. I'm surprised you didn't get blueberries. She was furious at the assumption that she had gone from high powered lawyer to full-time Default Blueberry shepper. Eight. Knew she had to do something about it? She says, there are a few ways to look the mental load. My favorite was a term from nineteen eighty-seven and American sociologist named Arlene Kaplan. Daniels. coined a term called invisible work. In why like that term so much is because that's the only one that had a modicum of a solution in it. Because I kept thinking to myself. Maybe. Maybe if I can make. Visible all the invisible things I was doing from my home and family for my husband, Seth? Maybe then he would value what I did.

"Now let's meet that Guitarist University of Sydney David Riley he also works with diamonds and has a position with Microsoft. First of all. You haven't bought a guitar with you I should have done. So you should have done because you remind me of the kind of Brian May strenuous. Nor quite as toll or is talented I. He's amazing. Isn't the what do you play at the moment? I'm really kind of get the fender stratocaster out of my hand but whatever the depends on the style I, remember you're playing in fact, the opening of this department the Nanno research outfit five years ago four years ago whatever it was. But the thing have you brought any tiny diamonds with you? I have not have not although. They probably around on the floor in the ED to some very small. Tiny nanometers in size he had the ones that we focus on our synthetic and these are ones that are in the body and they're spotted by the are I in other words, the machine that looks through you to see what's going on inside the body what they tell you as a person who wants to find out what's wrong with the body or not with motivation is really trying to track something in the body we wanted to make a lighthouse and what you attach that light house to that's really kind of at the discretion of research. But for instance, if you want to know where certain drugs maybe chemotherapy drugs anyone who's been you know in a very. Challenging circumstance of having to undergo chemotherapy knows that it's A. Process in part because those drugs go everywhere and they attack healthy tissue as much as they do cancerous tissue. A lot of the reason for that just blanket approach to treatment is because there is still of fundamental questions about how do we target certain types of citadels to certain particular functions or parts of body and from a physics point of view I mean, obviously physicists not a medical research, but it's A. Physics problem how do you create a beacon or lighthouse that is going to be useful in MRI not require you to be opened up, not require us to go and biopsy an organ but just to take a somewhat regular MRI and then have certain regions light up way the drugs our way they aren't cancer is a cancer recent. So that was the longtime motivation really challenging physics problem head of make diamond. Effectively light up in an MRI does it work? Yeah. It does. We've developed the technique to the point it works in mice and it's now really moving out of the physics lab into that why to area way it's going to have impact in biomedical research. Normally with those machines, you can tell with this tomb of the how extensive it is. You're looking at something rather small but what kind of things are you being able to spot the normal x ray type investigation can't the history of this came from maybe gives you a better understanding of. What we're trying to do I I, read a paper just remember. I. Think I was waiting somewhere wasn't to see a doctor was something like that I was reading something and I came across an article that said that chemotherapy drugs ferried around the body on us on a substrate or like on a raft in that Ross happened to be nano-diamond because it's relatively you knew it and dozen reaction is somewhat safe in small concentrations and I thought that's really interesting that just using diamond purely for the reason that it's inert and it doesn't react with anything. Physics point of utility of the diamond has other remarkable properties optically active, and it's also possible to basically program its nucleus spins the little tiny magnets leaving the inside of the Atom Orient, them such that it can give you a an image signature an MRE. So it's all about that attaching to something else goes along for the rides of big light bulb that will light up whatever it is that it's attached to. This Nanno outfit that you're in also, of course, works on quantum computing now. Without making you cross I. Hope I usually think of quantum computing, not just at the University of new, South Wales, Michelle Simmons. But also with silicon way as your investigation different silicon is a very interesting material and the F. that you're describing as being around now for over twenty years, and in fact, my PhD from that activity of the University of New South Wales in fact before it just hotted back in the late nineties. Silicon. In, many ways very obvious choice in which to make what we call cubits, the fundamental blocks of quantum information, and the reason that they're an obvious choices because the name of the game when it comes to quantum information is trying to protect it. It's very. At wants to become regular foreign classical information all the time, and to preserve these exotic or almost in a very counterintuitive properties. One has to preserve the quantum nature. So the name of the game is protected and silicon is material that when it comes to the electron spin the nucleus speed again, that is the little bar magnet. Goes along with the electron or nucleus in an atom. Silicon is material that's extremely free of uncontrolled by magnets uncontrolled spin. So if you intentionally put a speed in silicon, that's great because that's been can encode information and there's no other spins in the system that can lead to a loss of quantum information however. The challenges in this is something I think I've lost twenty years we've realized is that if you think of a line where you can choose between really protected systems where the information is stored in a way that is isolated like silicon and up the other end of the line is controllable I can manipulate it really quickly I can interact with it very strongly, and the challenge is, how do you create systems that are both highly protected from the environment, but not highly protected from control because I want to be out of manipulated and that did my Haidian thinking about that problem you realized that there is no escaping it you can choose your flavor of Cuba to. Silicon Harley protected but challenge you to control pretty slow and so on or keeps that want to interact with everything including the environment, but they can also be controlled very effectively and very quickly. You know how do you break out of that double edged sword? That was what inspired me to start to work on very different systems and the work that's happening here at the University of CD is really about trying to explore new types of cubits..

Elaine Pearson on free speech at UNSW
"Battle of free speech on Australian University campuses. Allying piece was interviewed by the Media Department at the University of new. South. Wales about the human rights implications of Hong. Kong's new national security role as. Director at Human Rights Watch and an adjunct law lecturer at the university. She expressed concern about the laws and called on the United Nations Secretary General to appoint a special envoy in Hong Kong. Well, it's hardly a very controversial stuff in democracy lock Australia Russia. Will sell you think. We'll after the article, win online the pro. Chinese Communist Party students at the university they demanded the article be removed. You see caused a fence it was hurtful to the communist government in China. The university caved in and pulled the article. Only. After an outcry in the press was the article riposted. So. How did we get to the point when one of Australia's leading universities agrees to political censorship in favor of another nation state? Elaine. Joins me now aligned welcome to between the lines. Great to have you on the program. Thanks Tom. Now, the article is back on the University of New South Wales website but with caveats that the views expressed do not represent the views of the university you happy with this outcome. Well I'm glad that they put it back up. But I am pretty disappointed at the university's response I mean I think you know the views expressed in that article of us about the human rights situation in Hong Kong and I think that shouldn't be something that should be controversial and I was a bit surprised actually that the university was so quick to distance themselves from those views and I think you know I presumed that the ferocity of the campaign by the Pro Chinese Communist Party. Students really took them by surprise. But I think now the question really is how is Going to respond to this and I, think the students you know really are looking to see what is going to be the public response and what next is the university going to do to address these shoes mind you. This is not the only incident of academic freedom being compromised. Can you tell us about some of the other cases? Yeah, Human Rights Watch has actually been documenting Chinese document lit threats to academic freedom since two thousand fifteen not just in Australia about universities all around the world we've looked cases in the US the UK Canada France and right here, and what we've seen is that there is A universities are in a tight bind because the become quite dependent on foreign students. Many of those students coming from China those students have a very different world view, many of them and when they come here. Obviously you know coming here should come with a guarantee of academic freedom and what these should be quite basic things for an Australian university education. But in reality if those students try and for instance, join protests on campus about Hong Kong or Fin Jiang they are often then reported to the Chinese consulates So they are very afraid of doing anything like that they just. Try and keep the hits down and you know you only have to look at the controversy that's happened on Q. Withdrew Pavlou and how he has been treated to see that you know we you know it's not a very impressive response from the universities to to say, Scott Free speech and academic freedom only sorts of sensitive topics like shin-jang like Hong Kong, and like human rights in China. Now you mentioned drew heavily, he was expelled from the University of Queensland in part. For, organizing, what was it very noisy pro Hong Kong protests is that right? Well, he's been suspended. So I, think you know the industry who six months suspension six month suspension so He has been you know he's had been a pretty provocative campaigner. Some of these methods may have been a bit unorthodox, but at the end of the day, look at what happened to him on on that campus I. Mean there were fistfights erupting you cue between the different student groups you had in our pro CCP's students you know supporting the Communist Party trying to tear down. The messages from? Hong, Kong democracy supporters and the only person who's actually suffered any retaliation or reprisals is is drew himself, and so we wanna see universities really safeguard academic freedom and free speech and I think that means also acting against those who are intimidating or harassing all those on campus and making the campus a safe space to express all sorts of different views. Now in your case, a lot of the outrage amongst the Chinese students was expressed and organized I understand on Chinese soil media platforms way chat. which are now apparently watched by Beijing and to what extent you concerned about those platforms like we had and I think the other one is is a waiver we Yes that's right. Yeah I mean. These were the platforms where they organize. Look if students want to express different view an opposing you that's fine I think. I'm concerned is the extent to which this campaign became one of intimidating and harassing other students who expressed different views and as I understand it were threats made that they would report people to the Chinese consulate. For expressing excuse so I think the universities actually really need to monitor. Their social media channels and not just use them as a means of advertising for you know potential new students come to the university but also make sure that those channels are being you know being up being watched not to to censor free speech. But as I said, you know where that free speech is crossing the line. I also think they just need to be clear to the students. You know what what that means that it means. Going to a means being exposed to two different views and a free to discuss and debate those issues, but you're not free to shut down. The views of others. Of course, a line universities in Australia and this is cried sacred I've become increasingly dependent on. Overseas students for their budgets. Some have more diversified student bodies but others locked. University of new, South, Wales away opposite talking about University of New South Wales because of your special case this week they heavily concentrated on the Chinese market now since covert. US W has been one of the hardest hit by travel restrictions at recently made nearly I think five hundred staff redundant. Do you think this budget anxiety affected their handling of the issue align peace and? Yes I've been I think this reliance on the revenue from foreign students is something that you know all universities are facing now and so it it is putting them in a difficult position but I think that's why actually universities need to have a unified front. I think they really need to look at their existing. Codes of conduct they don't actually deal with these issues of foreign students might come from very different oil you, and so you know what I've suggested to you, and it's still view and to many other universities in Australia is to adopt a twelve point code of conduct specifically on these issues and they need to be alive to these issues. They need to incorporate it more into the orientation when you foreign students coming to campus so that they really understand what academic freedom means with our and they need to sort of monitor and. Safeguard, for you know acts of intimidation or harassment because I'm not so worried about myself but I'm more worried about other students on campus who will see how the situation has developed and then they might be too scared to speak out on. Hong Kong will fit in the classroom or other academics who might think twice about taking a meteorological on Hong Kong because they'll be worried about the potential backlash. So you know I think universities really need to take a stand on this and you know it needs to be done. You know jointly. By by all USTRALIAN universities.

Three. All right let's talk a little bit about. Digital Licenses Sarah Digital Licenses Indeed Quinn Telegraph reports that one million South Koreans have opted for a digital driver's license that's about three percent of the driving population. So you know there's a ways to go. It's a lot of people the Digital ID card launched in May in partnership with S.. K.. K. T., and lg you plus telecoms the license appears in the pass. APP USERS show the APPs Barcode or Qr code four idea or proof of age. The back end of the license uses a block chain for authentication Australia's new. South Wales is also testing a digital license that uses a theorems blockchain for verification. So it's all the rage. There's a lot of digital licenses out there, but they use various ways of authentication and blockchain is. Actually one of the more solid ones I know blockchain gets around the buzz as a buzzword a lot. But in this case, it's a good way to be able to verify and say, no this this APP user is authenticated as this digital license holder and seems like I don't know to me Patrick I. Don't know what you think. Three percent adoption seems pretty good. At seems an excellent start. I was I was I was actually very proud of of daily tech news show for not immediately leading walk Jada fades driver's license. To like that, you're right. Yeah it was like all the headlines were like that. I'm kind of fascinated by it. I'm kind of curious to see where it goes You know South, Korea's very different from the United States but in terms of. Personal freedoms and accepting stuff like this. But I was kind of really fascinated by this and also kind of really fascinated half terrifying terrified by the idea of where this could be in thirty years like lose your phone, you can't be identified. That's actually one of the nice things about the blockchain aspect of this is that it's As long as you have a wallet attached to it. You would be able to reauthenticate and get that that idea back but you're right right. The Way blockchain works. Sometimes if you don't have multiple wallets, you lose that wallet that APP then the Jacquards. So I think that's why the past being part of this is very important here.

Mounting COVID-19 Deaths Expose Deep Crisis in Australian Aged Care Homes
"We're seeing a lot of cases of covid nineteen linked to age facilities now, which obviously a huge worry, because H K this lady's a high to very vulnerable people in terms of infection from the virus, and often the people who work there of vulnerable in different ways perhaps have less income security than they would like. So how do we manage this problem of in aged care? Become a political issue. The is largely in private age. CARE facilities in Victoria which come under the responsibility of Komo of government, the Commonwealth Minister Senator Kobe said well, there's really not this is not a systematic problem with these centers, sending in help to boast or furloughed staff, and so on, but the fact of the matter is, you can't have sixty age care facilities with problems and not have some sort of common issue across facilities, and it's likely to be although still to be shown I mean we've got an each care. Care Role Commission going on. Australia, we've had significant problems to do with residential care and complaints by residents and their families prior to Covid nineteen, and now here we have with covid nineteen, a very large outbreak in new, south Wales, and we not have multiple outbreaks or clusters or centers of infection in Victoria sixty more than sixty. In fact, so this suggests something common to these care facilities, and we're not seeing them in public facilities to the same extent in Victoria. So what is that about? And you can only speculate, and you can speculate that they haven't invested necessarily in expertise in healthcare support registered nurses in training in having PP available, and you're hearing rumors rather van concrete information You hear that h care facilities have their covid nineteen plan, but they've not implemented. It's just a piece of paper. In case, somebody comes around and checks or the not knowing how to implement it. Must indicate just cannot be anything other than an indication that there's something seriously wrong with the way the run H care residential facilities. What is the K. differences between public and private facilities? Do we know again? It's speculation, but what you hear is that public facilities residential homes in Victoria are more likely to have on staff are available to them. Some medical and nursing expertise, particularly nursing expertise, whereas private facilities may not, and it's about costs investments. May, be a situation where you can actually blame the individual home. If you've got across sixty, it may well be that the system of funding care is is at fault and that these age care facilities just unable to ride safe environments.

"Coming up I, though he's been looking into some stone tools, new muddling analyses suggest humans may have lived in the Americas thousands of years earlier. The many people bolts. Now the of when humans first arrived in the Americas is a hot debate for archaeologists. Well, it's actually a long debated topic as well. This is an issue that arose in the Americas in the eighteen seventies. This is David Meltzer an archeologist who investigates when humans arrived the Americas. Of the past hundred years, or so since archaeologists have gone back and forth on when this might have happened. More recently, thanks to additional archaeological, Ngoma evidence research, his off, starting to converge, go window from when humans first stepped foot on the America's. What we have coming out of archaeology is a number of sites that are sort of in the fifteen thousand years ago range. And so that gives us a minimum age. We know the people were here by that date the ancient. Is pointing to a split. Between Northeast Asian populations and those groups that would come into the Americas happening around Oh twenty, three twenty four thousand years ago, and that kind of gives us a maximum age so somewhere between that twenty, three, twenty four and fifteen is probably the window within which we got people leaving Northeast Asia crossing the Land Bridge and coming into the Americas within this window for many archaeologists. Archaeologists is most likely. The people entered the America's around sixteen thousand years ago. This is due to the prevailing well-established archaeological evidence, which is also backed up by climatic conditions before this time between sixteen thousand and twenty thousand years ago, it would have been difficult for humans to migrate across the Land Bridge from Asia Ju to the presence of giant bowls of ice in North America. This was a time period within the last ice age known as the last glacial maximum or L. GM. If you get to Alaska during the last glacial maximum your in a cola SAC, and so you've got basically two massive ice sheets better blocking your way out, but this week in nature there are two papers that pushed the date of human arrival back thousands of years before sixteen thousand years ago. One has examined the cave deep in the desert Mexico known as cheeky to the oldest dates. We have our somewhere around thirty thousand years ago. This is sipping our delion, the lead archaeologist examining the cave. Hundred years ago would push back human arrival to well before the last glacial maximum when blocked entry into North America. There were some clues that that cave have something. In those layers belonging to the GM that seemed to suggest humans and I was very skeptical, bought Chiquita Cave. If you go deeper and deeper into excavations without stopping when you hit. The Marker. Of the fourteen thousand orbiting thousand, you may get lucky. You may get into something that's been invisible for quite a while with evidence of human during the last glacial maximum, Ciprian was encouraged to look beyond the SPIRA and dig deeper to older sediments. By taking. SCIPION found an array of unusual stone tools that he thinks made by people that inhabited the cave. flaked stone tools made a very peculiar material, which is re crystallized green limestone. So they searched for this particular kinds of stone around the cave, and they consistently picked the Greens variety and used it to to make very good. Looking artifacts that are already shaped, so it's not the typical flint or obsidian. He would find many places during the Now this isn't the first evidence suggested that humans have been in the Americas this early. That oversights weather have been claims of human occupation born twenty thousand years ago, but these are being disputed by some archaeologists. Also there are comparatively few sites of this age in the US or Canada so far. If, we seem that people initially crossed into Alaska across the lumberjack known as Berangere, and then migrated south would expect to find more traces of them. Well. That's where the second paper in nature this week comes in is offered by one of the researchers who's been investigating Cheeky Wheaty Loretta Devia so we were looking at archaeological and colonel metric, so that's essentially radiocarbon dates, luminescence dates from forty two archaeological sides from north, America and Brinda by collecting and analyzing Archaeological Evidence News Associated Dates Loretta, and her co author were able to build a model of human dispersal as populations found out from Alaska across North America. Whilst? This model doesn't find new dates for out of fax. It uses known dice to suggest when people would have I reached the different sites across North America. We were able to see that. Humans were present in North America before during and after the. Maximum, but that human expansion didn't actually occur until later during a period of abrupt sort of global warming, this only did the populations were low during the last glacial maximum, and then rapidly expanded once things go warmer is also backed up by scipion archaeological evidence from the cave in Mexico as soon as you reach the layers in the deposits of the case that day to about. Eighteen, sixteen thousand you the number forty facts just. triplicated number scipion also things this could help explain what was so little evidence of humans during before the last glacial maximum. It's almost impossible to find them I. mean you have such a huge chunk of our planet with just a few footsteps on it? That's that's how I looked like I mean you can barely coli to. populated, continent, but do these papers roll back the daytime when humans were present in the Americas. Well. It may be too early to tell for David. Meltzer you heard from earlier. It wasn't involved in this research. When it comes to the cave, he thinks of a still questions be asked about the tools that were found based on radiocarbon dates that they have I think the radiocarbon dates look awfully solid. It appears as though this technology lasted for minimally according to the dates around sixteen thousand years with a stone tool tradition bat, long lasting one would expect it to have been far more widespread in the region instead of being localized to this this one cave David. Perhaps archaeologist just haven't found stone tools like this. Unless could account for why they don't appear to be widespread. He did have questions as well regarding wind don't to change over the sixteen thousand year period. They were found. The him is quite strange. CIPRIAN however argues the. Maybe that isn't so unusual. If you look at other places in the world during the Ice Age, the stone technologies did the remain the same for many thousands of years without significant changes. So that's what happens that she reach. It behaves more like stone tool industries in the old world where they remain unchanged for thousands of years for the second. Paper David Vote, but Laurynas analysis was sound. He did have some questions regarding some the sites that were included in the analysis. In some cases, these sites themselves, the data is highly ambiguous, so you've got a well dated site, but the artifacts or the indications of a human presence may just be shattered, bone or cut mark bone, and those of us that do field work that deal with this kind of thing know that there are a lot of natural processes that can mimic human actions on bone or stone, the debate surrounding when humans first came to the Americas is far from solved this newspapers at evidence to it been many ways. They raise a lot of questions as well. Perhaps though they will inspire archaeologist to dig deeper to find the first Americans at the moment subject to change if you look at the converging genomic and archaeological evidence, it looks as though people are coming in soon after the less maximum. So Sixteen fifteen and a half thousand years ago. Could they have been there earlier? Absolutely? But if you're going to make the argument, it's going to require you know well laid out case. That was David Meltzer. From Southern Methodist University in the US you also heard from Cipriani Audet Leeann from the University of Texas in Mexico and Lorena, Sarah Devia from the University of Oxford here in the UK and the University of New South, Wales in Australia, we'll put a link to the papers.

Coronavirus Around The World: How Countries Are Coping With COVID-19 Surges
"Back to the Corona virus as a continuous has said too grim and unwelcome records. Global cases and I above 13.5 1,000,000 got Brazil topping two million alone and India one million elsewhere in Asia, Hong Kong and Japan and likewise reporting record numbers. Let's get more as we cross over to our senior international editor, Jody Schneider. 30 in this part of the world cases continue to go up on Japan and Hong Kong. We did have a feeling that the virus has been contained, but think there's those feelings were misplaced. Tell us about what's happening. Yeah, Rich has really no good news across Asia. Now we're seeing places like Manila, which had a lock down, which he's now it may return to a lock down that they have a case of Dr Same thing in Jakarta, Indonesia. They're keeping their social difference in measures that were set to fire and she notes in Japan and Tokyo and Hong Kong places where things have seen relatively good seeing surges in cases, including ah, locally transmitted cases, But that's a welcome from there, not just from Top people travelling back travelling back indicates the Hong Kong so measures are now being re imposed in Hong Kong are coping. Everything. After six PM all restaurants and bars and finding people who don't wear facemasks on other transportation we're seeing in Australia now. You could turn their most happy with state. South Wales is going further tighten restrictions on one of the second part of the state of Victoria in the second day of fighting cases capital Melbourne onto gripped by direct the second wave of infection for the second and third way concerning the expert. And Judy. What about India, where the virus seems widespread. What's the latest there? What's the government doing? Yeah, there it has already hit officially hit. The one million market is expected very soon. And that's of course very concerning. This is a place that had a very, very strict locked out. People were famously what tongue to their villages left cities. And they were just starting to feel like they had gotten ahead of them, and now they're really does seem to be no end in sight, and it's very hard to contain that such a large country. It's a large population. How many in a very densely populated areas of India is one of the real concerns in the region. And on the possibility of a vaccine. We've got toe Britain. The U. S on Canadian government, all alleging the Russian state intelligence is hacking research centers were trying to develop a vaccine. But what do we know about this and have any of these vaccine program's been set back? Yeah, That's the real question, which is unclear whether the research facilities back were hacked into apparently had damaged war. The back programs have been set back a zoo result of the hacks. Officials are warning that the cyber attacks are ongoing, so it is a real concern and this is now the UK, US and Canadian government have all said in dramatic statement. On a particularly you came in first setback scene and therapeutic sectors. Multiple countries have been targeted by this good that it's on was certainly according to U K part of Russian State intelligence. But the real question is, did you know in fact the vaccine production or testing, which has been going forward? That's been one of the bright spots like you would think that go ahead. The question is how much of this has been affected. Senior international editor Jody Schneider in Hong Kong.
Are pubs petri dishes that should be shut down and avoided?
"So no one. Can we talk today about pubs? Because there's a pub in Sydney that's the epicenter of the outbreak there, which is admittedly a lot smaller than what's happening in Victoria, but it's significant and there was another pop down the road from there. There that was being investigated hasn't had any confirmed cases yet. Though, but if you start thinking about hubs, you can see how they could be places where it would be easy for the virus is spread. You've got a lot of people close quarters, maybe talking loudly, maybe letting their guard down a little bit. Should we be avoiding pubs? I think. This is a question that really needs to be addressed because. Our tensely super spreading environments for exactly the reasons. You just said Teagan. When people speak aerosols, come out of your mouth in other words micro doppler. She don't have to sneeze or cough. You just go to speak an pop. You speak more loudly because you've got to be haired. The five thousand people in that various times and you are drinking. Therefore you're disinherited, and you're more likely to be laughing. Channing to you mates, etcetera, etcetera is just the environment. Where if you've got the virus, it's coming out and it's going significant distances and I think that social distancing and pops may help. It may help reducing the numbers and pops because that statistically would reduce the chances that somebody's covid nineteen, but in areas where you are seeing spread, it may be one of the first things that you shot his pubs because there's just so to control well, there's a paper that came out recently about when people speak more loudly. They more likely to spread droplets further. This was a paper in nature, and it was particularly looking at aerosol spread, which is micro droplets that you can't see. Could be seen under micro a microscope, and these are the droplets that can carry virus, and can carry them quite far away. We can also carry TB by the way hubs, the only place where people speak loudly and a close to each other, but I suppose if we're trying to look for ways to reduce the spread. That's maybe one place. We could look at the only place. We should be looking. No, you start to look at the home and how many people you can actually bring into your home. The more people you bring, the more risk you're taking. There's going to be somebody there who is carrying the COVID, nineteen virus and again even though you might keep social. Social distance in your front room. If you're there for long enough in one person has actually got covered nineteen spray high chance, though spread it to the other people in the room, just because there long enough and these aerosols spread throughout the room over time. Unless room is hyper, ventilated This is a high risk. Sir, we may be quick in reopening pubs, and should we be open to not keeping them open while I think it can be very clever. In retrospect, it is what it is, but I think that in Victoria and use is Wales. They should give serious consideration to pops closing down again. They're restricting the numbers POPs New South Wales and overstate Victoria's in lockdown. But Really it an issue in areas where it's spreading an why take that risk and Equally careful in restaurants much as we like going out with her areas where it's spreading, I think these are places where you've just got to be careful as you gotta be careful as well

Will the Fires That Made Centralia a Ghost Town Ever Go Out?
"The smallest municipality in Pennsylvania is Centralia a former mining community located about two hours north west of Philadelphia. Records tell US had one thousand, four, hundred and thirty five residents in the year nineteen sixty. Today fewer than ten people still live there. The US Postal. Service revoked and trailer Zip Code in two thousand two and the local portion of state route sixty one was permanently closed off nine years before that. We can't blame. The areas decline on the usual socioeconomic suspects. Its problems run deeper literally since at least nineteen sixty to a coal seam fire has been smoldering right below the town. Yes, in. The Earth has been smoking. An ash has been raining down for over fifty years. No one knows exactly how the coal fire got started, but whatever set the thing off this long lived. Blaze isn't some kind of one off luke. Naturally occurring coal deposits are called seems in the mining industry, and wherever such veins occur whole seem fires like the one under Centralia may break out and commonly do. China's three thousand mile or five thousand kilometer coal mining belt is notorious for its seemed fires a so as a town in India where fires have claimed about forty one million tons of coal since nineteen eighteen. We spoke by email with a new TMA per cash, a geologist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She said the issue is more prevalent in areas. Where coal was extracted in the past with limited efforts to ensure that the whole left, the extraction was filled up. She explained that mines that don't provide structural support to keep ground from collapsing. Likewise risk seem fire outbreaks. Granted humans aren't always responsible. Though down in new, south Wales Australia, there's a famous coal seam that's been burning for six thousand years straight scientists think it was first ignited by an ancient brushfire or lightning strike. A coal doesn't need much encouragement to catch fire under the right circumstances, the material can actually light itself ablaze through spontaneous combustion. We also spoke by with research geologist Alain Coker. He explained the decomposition of Pyrite President in coal produces heat, and in some cases, the self heating can start the coal on fire. This is a problem even where coal is transported long distances and ships. By most accounts, Centralia great fire began at a dump near the local odd fellows cemetery on May, twenty seventh of nineteen, sixty two. This landfill was intentionally set ablaze was six volunteer firefighters, standing by. It was all part of a yearly cleanup effort by the local government. Controlled Burns were popular garbage disposal technique back then, but things didn't always go according to plan. Perhaps this fire ran deeper into the trash than anybody realized if so, it could have spread through the refuse and entered the nearest coal mine pit with no one being the wiser. Than again, be the town. Government had nothing to do with it. Some have argued that different garbage fire at the same site. A lit by an unidentified truck driver is what really sealed Centralia fate. Another less popular theory claims the coal seam fire started all the way back in the Great Depression and went unextinguished for decades before the nineteen sixties gave it a new lease on life. Regardless. The inferno made itself right at home, sweeping through mine tunnels and coal seams, flames descended as far as three hundred feet, ninety meters below the ground, sometimes nearing temperatures of one, thousand, three hundred fifty degrees, Fahrenheit or seven hundred thirty Celsius. According to an investigation in two thousand twelve has a tway's underlying. Some four hundred acres or sixty hectares of land, had been touched by the blaze at sometime or other. Coker said uncontrolled coalfires have all the potential environmental impacts of burning coal for power generation with none of the benefits in addition to emitting carbon dioxide, trace metals, such as mercury and harmful. Fine particles are emitted. Per, cash noted that methane and sulfur dioxide are also common and so distinctive that just talking about these fires virtually floods her with memories of the sent. To this day, smoke rises from the earth through fishers around Centralia. Meanwhile, the terrain has become perilously unstable over time. Her cash said these fires are dangerous as land can suddenly collapsed or sink as the fire just eats up the ground underneath such collapses can damaged houses roads. Train tracks etc.. That's why Pennsylvania closed off four thousand feet, or about one thousand two hundred meters of route sixty one back in nineteen, ninety-three subterranean pillars held up the pavement, were destroyed or weakened by the flames, making the roadway totally unsuitable for motorists. So Wilson Trail is fire ever burn out? Extinguishing so-far haven't paid off. Between nineteen sixty to nineteen eighty-two assorted government agencies spent seven million dollars fighting. This entrails a qualifier openings sealed trenches were dug, and the minds were stuffed with non-combustible. And crushed rocks, but nothing worked. Nearly all of Centralia former residents are long gone. Many took advantage of a forty two million dollar tax payer funded relocation initiative, which saw five hundred buildings destroyed. The final holdouts have been granted permission to spend the rest of their lives in the town as per eight thousand thirteen settlement with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. According to the state's Department of Environmental, protection the fire might keep on raging for over a hundred years yet to come. But as bad as they can get coal seam, buyers aren't invincible. Kosh said good policies on mining safety and reclamation go a long way as preventative measure, if a fire does start taking quick action to contain it by isolating the fire, dousing the fire, cooling the area and continued monitoring to ensure that the fire does not start again are important measures. Centralia? Hellish effect made it part of the inspiration for the two thousand six horror film silent. The departure from the video game series that it was adapted from. And over the past thirty odd years town Centralia not silent hill has become an unlikely tourist destination. One former attraction was the abandoned stretch of route sixty one dubbed the graffiti highway at attracted masses of street artists who added a rainbow of cartoons and signatures to the pavement. However in two thousand twenty, the corporation that owns the undrivable road, had covered up with piles of dirt. Dissuade visitors from swinging by during the covid nineteen pandemic.

Road-tripping Post COVID-19
"Hi. It's Kim and fill with you a huge thanks for joining into a spatial episode exploring road tripping, and in this episode we discuss specific routes necessarily, but rather tuning to four experts, discussing the rise of road travel as broad as open and travel restrictions begins, as it made covid nineteen, and it is worth. Noting as the US started opening up their economies covid cases began to spike again in some areas by as much as twenty five percent, according to Alfred Christina Tunnel hit of World Medicine for the Americas. Then, Spain the has to be some sort of consideration in how people do a rug trip to minimize further spread. Well, that's what's attractive about Roger Christina's places with campsites and inherits social, distancing like national and state parks will be the preferred destinations. She also says many are allowing people in only by strict daily caps and reservations in some filler, even denying entry to out of state visit you normal, isn't it? Yeah, our first chat is with Joe from harvest hosts which will explain about shortly, but we should put it out there as it pops up during this episode. Commute a huge fan of Roger. I am indeed now we converted, and they'll DVD. G Ten diesel delivery van. And sadly it was just before the pandemic, so emmy use it, but since managed one road trip is restrictions lifted here in New South Wales in Australia. We went to cattle. Farm near applies cold Mudgee, which is nine for its produce in its wine now set up. Is The lady image on the website for these episode by the way, so you can have a look, but they had social distancing rules in place, Ville especially around the drop toilets, where everything had to be wiped down after used it with sanitizer, and if you were lining up for the lose your head to maintain that one point five major distance, but as for the site itself, it's a cattle farm. It was huge. It was so big. It was easy to Cape Away from his. Anyway. That's my story. We kicked up asking Joe. It's not about me if twenty twenty is a banner year for ride travel. Yes hard stop interviews over. Rarely is their question was such an easy answer? I think it was very speculative back in March. It was a lot of up in the air like Whoa. What's going to happen? Never win. Kinda paused. We saw memberships. New memberships really dropped off a cliff. Everyone was kind of nervous about the unknown. What we're seeing now. Is that everything's exploding in the RV world, so our business is up four hundred percent, or versus this time last year we're seeing rental companies like outdoorsy and RV share also up four hundred percent. So I think people are number one. They're ready to get back to traveling and number two. Are Beings a very safe way to do it. Even amidst this Cova crisis. What is safe for them being in your own RV in a spacious area. You know without crowds, so yes, I think this is the year I think this is the year, and I hope it lasts because you and I probably agree are pretty wonderful thing to do. Schori's in fact as offset. Every month during this covered lockdown I want to avoid anything that's hectic and I want to avoid expectation so jumping in the van for me, and just disappearing somewhere is is what I'm GonNa do the racist of the and moving forward. If I can be convinced, my husband to leave, he's job. Man That's so funny. We're about the same I I'm trying to convince my wife to leave her job for the same reasons, unlike this is our opportunity, just like be nomads and and travel right so. I wish you best of luck and. Thanks for that otherwise we could meet halfway. Just travel buddies so. You. You've done it for years just for those that haven't an dabbling NATO's in this world vein. What is the attraction freedom I? Mean again like it's a one word answer, but I think it really captures it for us from my wife and I. We got into are being. Like six years ago and the concept when our heads were like well, wouldn't it be nice to a road trip? It seems so freeing and like open an exciting. When we did it, we fell in love with it. I mean it really is like true unbridled freedom. You make a decision every day about whether you want goanywhere or not, where you WanNa go do you WanNa? Go East West North South. It's great right and for people like US I love traveling, but I don't like sticking to strict plans, Riley. I feel like travels most exciting where you let it take you at once and air travel doesn't do that hotel travel doesn't do that. You have to be very structured about where you're going to be in win, and in the RV like you wake up every morning and make your destiny
NZ has eliminated COVID. Is Australia on track to do it too?
"So let's quickly start with New Zealand today. They've listed coronavirus restrictions after reporting active cases in the country. How confident can we be about it? Being a radical added there just to be clear what they're talking about. No community transition from its seventeen days. They say a reproductive cycle of the viruses fourteen days. So if you've read the virus, you would not expect to see any more. More within fourteen days, so it's really good news. We predicted on Corona Casta while ago that if we went for radicalization that sort of thing, you could expect to actually to lift restrictions quite considerably, because there's almost no chance of actually catching the virus. If you're sure, there's none left in the country and smaller states in Australia we're almost at that point so straight is lifting some restrictions Western Australia Queensland. Tasmania role in pretty good shape in terms of having almost eliminated the virus from those States New South Wales Victoria still a little. Little bit of communities spread, and you can't lift those restrictions such as you have in New Zealand in the two biggest states at the moment, and then you've got the issue necessarily of literal relaxing borders between states, and that's what they're reluctant to do. As long as some community transmission in Victoria and you south Wales, but we might get rid of that within a few weeks, in which case you might be in the startling situation where the whole nation can lift restrictions quite dramatically. Yeah I mean what's at a timeframe? Would we be looking? Looking for that, and how can we be sure that we continuing to have no virus in Australia you've got to wait so nor community transmission for at least fourteen days, but ideally maybe even a month so that you've gone food to reproductive cycles of the virus new. Zealand's waited for just a little bit over one reproductive cycle to say that they're pretty confident, but you've got to keep on testing and you've got to keep on testing people who any symptoms and you can't let down. Your guard doesn't deal with the situation overseas travel. and. People came in from overseas and relaxing those restrictions as soon as you do that then. Bets are off well like you say. We have seen a bit of community transmission in some states in Australia recently and so we're getting questions from people who attended the black lives, matter and indigenous deaths in custody rallies over the weekend Jessica asking for those who did attend the protests. When is a good time to get tested? Because we've talked before about the virus it of having an incubation period wins. Wins the most effective time to get tested, and there's a question for male along the same lines where hair. She said she had me saying that. If you get tested too early on infection, it's more likely you'll get a false negative. Well, listen to mail yet. We've been covering that and and on the health report. The recommendation from governments is absolutely right. You get tested at any time if any symptom. So any symptom it, oh, you're feeling lousy. You unexplained, even diarrhea. You've got call code loss of specially loss of taste or loss of smell. Then you need to be tested. It doesn't matter how many days will come pass since the protests. If you're a symptomatic and what to get tested then is, it's not clear exactly what you should do, but if you go on, that study quoted. Day One. It's not day one after the protests. We're already at day to day one. The test isn't very accurate because you don't have very much. If you've been infected dates, essentially becomes more and more accurate the more days after you've been infected. You're looking at the data. You'd probably say three or four days after the protests, you could get tested. That would be a day or two before symptoms would appear. Then that starts to be worth doing. And if you've still got no symptoms then day eight eight days after the protests, you'd have a second test. If, the first test was negative, and that's probably going in the evidence, the the most reliable regime still miss people. But if you WANNA get tested dramatic. It's a good thing to

So we're going to start with the financial times today. We've heard about surveillance especially coming out of China.

That's in the UK, the southern hemisphere. I should clarify has thrown up some issues they've been trying over the course of a year, and they found that when the tech is focused on a large crowds. It tends to crash. So there are two different purposes that they use the tech for one is to locate and the other is to identify suss. Spects? So when they're working with it as a locating device, they train a camera on crowds of people, and basically sift through all the faces that they see to see if any of them are people that they wanna find identify just plug all the faces they get into the database and hope that it throws up some suspects that thereafter, Noverre effective twenty six percent of the time. It's right when they're trying to locate people twenty two percent when they're trying to identify people that he's really underwhelming business old. Yeah, it's really not very good. And it turns out that things like hats scarves, glasses even people moving past the camera at high speeds or disrupt the efficiency of this technology. So it's basically impractical it will require and I quote considerable changes to police practices and considerable investment to to to make it useful. Basically, the conclusion of the research has found that the. The tech is best thought of as a system rove in the kind of panacea. Police can use it to help. But they shouldn't put all their faith in it. That's an interesting conclusion that was from the financial times. And then your second story for today is from this is from the international in New York Times. Now here are Monica. We did cover quite a lot last week referenda in Taiwan the referenda that we referendum story that we were looking at specifically. Was about. Same sex marriage. It comes off the Taiwan pass legislation that made it easier to propose an party referendum questions by the public part of this process of democratization that the the the island is undergoing. The kind of blood is of liberalism everywhere. The results were not so satisfying. In fact, they were kind of akin to the results in the Brexit referendum in two thousand sixteen despite a court ruling the ruled that limiting merge, the heterosexual couples was unconstitutional voters overwhelmingly. Supported the removal of content about homosexuality and also expressed opposition to same-sex marriage during the referendum one guy. Mike Zang is quoted as saying we thought we lived in a progressive and open country. But after seeing the disparity in this referendum, we discovered we were living in a place that we didn't regulars which I'm sure rings some bells from you in Jiu live two thousand and sixteen hearing those kind of sentiments after the Brexit vote what kind of conclusions is that article drawing from what we saw happening in Taiwan. Then well, what it's saying is that actually what's more important than the result is the establishment of the institution of the referenda. The point is not about what comes out, but rather about basically developing political infrastructure to support any potential future. Independence bid that might be made by Taiwan in the future that bringing this idea of referenda into the political culture and that try. To get people engaged. So that should they need to hold an emergency referendum. They come do. Those more calls August in much. Larry. Thank you very much..

And if this had been one hundred years ago conditions for that mine, and we just heard would have been considered luxurious. Hello, I'm Roger data and welcome to the forum where experts share their knowledge with us in today's program. We'll be looking at coal and those who dig for it this humble black rock that has led hundreds of thousands of miners to risk their lives in the cause of fuelling industrial revolutions and powering empires. And whilst this lump of energy has been the catalyst for unprecedented, wealth and material comfort. It's also brought devastating pollution and scarred. Landscapes joining me to discuss the history of coal and its legacy are from South Africa. Don't of Mattew from Gibbs university of Pretoria in Johannesburg. Dr schilling Xiaowu, a specialist on China and author of empires of coal, the American environmental lawyer Barbara freeze who's written coal a human history and Darren count the manager of Kent mining. Museum in southeast England. Welcome all. And now you each represent four countries that have been hugely involved in the coal trade briefly. Let me ask you all how his cO shaped the destiny of your own country. Darren how about the UK I think you compare coal back in the day as the same as uranium and plutonium now it should actively. It was that the wonder fuel of his age. And if you go back three four hundred years, the UK was probably the the seat of technology and developing the use of coal, you're right. The way through to the eighteen fifties nine thousand nine hundred and exporting that technology around the world as well and its peak in the early twentieth century, we're talking about huge amount of coal coming up in this country, yet ninety nine hundred thirteen two hundred ninety two million tons of coal and about a third of that cold actually been exported around the world as well. And Barbara give me a couple of examples of the difference coal is made to the USA. Well, coal certainly made an enormous impact on the United States. It brought about our industrial development at a time when we were a very young country without many institutions actually built. So it had a huge effect in shaping our corporate structures, our labor structures, and it played a major role, for example in the north winning the civil war. How did they do that? It did that because the north really was the seat of industrial production and the north had something like a thirty eight to one advantage over the south in coal production that meant it could have more factories produce more iron produce, more guns and more railways, and obviously that played a major role in winning the war and chilling. Tell me how is Cole connected to Chinese history and culture Chinese have mind call for several thousand years, but in the last century the possession of. Large deposits of coal really field. China's rise in the recent decades is rise as an economic superpower. So that today China uses more coal than the rest of the countries in the world combined and of South Africa is a big producer of coal. How how's it affected your country? I the Corby produce twenty five percent is exported. That's great developmentally. Now, our DP, and we have got a lot of poor people in this country who depend on Roku for cooking and heating the pace that is something which if there's no coed don't know how these people survive, and we only have coins Africa. We don't have co in many other. Parts of the continent. And it has been the unique. And I believe that even today South Africa has the biggest export terminal for coal in the world. Yes, we have the biggest called, Tom. No. At least as vehicle and we are getting crews followed out by the protocol Newcastle in New South, Wales, straight it. Okay. Well, let's take a closer look at this black stuff. What is coal exactly? And how's it formed? Barbara told me not because it can arrived in cool the carbon different age, and that was the time when vegetation came onto land in and gave the planet millions of years of stored energy. Yes, the carbon Niffer was hundreds of millions of years ago. It was a time when there were some lush forests finally covering the continents. And it was also a time where geologic forces had not lifted up the land, very high. So as for example, the polar ice caps. Melted. Or we froze and there were climate changes way back then water would step forward and cover the forests and then retreat again in the forest would would March forward again in the course of that process. These forests would be buried by water and sediment, and so the natural processes of decay did not occur. So all of the carbon that those forests had absorbed as they grew and all of the energy that they had absorbed from the sun ended up getting buried and slowly slowly compressed and turning into Pete. And then to various forms of coal, some call has been produced since then, but that was the era when most of it was produced now, I'm actually holding a piece of cola here in my hand, needless to say, it's actually dirty. My my hand ready, but it is kind of beautiful in its own special way. And there are different types on their this piece is from a former coalfield in Newcastle in the northeast of England. Darren just explained to me what I've got here and the different kinds of coal that also exist. What you've got what looks like bitchiness co. So that's what we'd core a middling coal. So would use that for producing coal gas for coking for other industrial processes for heating. But then you've got the the much harder the anthracite coal, which are really dense. They're really actually really hard to light. But the ironic thing about anthracite coal once you've got it burning. You have a difficulty putting out, and there's many stories of coal forest, particularly in American Barbara could probably pick up on that places like Centralia, which is a very famous case where these coalfires of bone for years and abandoned towns, and then we've got the very the younger coaster the lick nights, the Brown coals, and that's the sort of coal they produce in Poland, for instance, as well. So it's a very very dirty coal actually will the anthracite scribble come into play later on when we talk about the USA. You're right. We know Barbara that Cole was formed in our pre. Prehistoric past. But what are the first recorded uses of coal by humans. Well surprise. It will be one of the earliest uses and this was in ancient China some six thousand years ago, or so was carving. They found the call to be very beautiful, and there's evidence some archaeologists have found something they called Neolithic ear piercing ornaments. And so they were carving the coal. They were wearing the coal. And this also happened in Britain during the Roman era. Call became famous and was written about by the Romans as something that could be carved into jewelry. An interesting about where you believe it was cold that made China a superpower as early as the eleventh century. Yes, there was a an amazing period of a kind of military industrialization that took place in ancient China about a thousand years ago. China had already been very advanced in its iron production and about a thousand years ago, they figured out how they could use coal to produce iron, which was a little tricky. But they they did figure it out. And at the time they were fighting off invaders horseback riding invaders, and and they militarize to the extent that they would have thousands of workers producing with iron, and with coal thousands of spears and swords and shields something even called horse decapitating swords. So it was a pulse of industrialization made possible by coal, and in now since China, I suppose was way ahead of what Britain achieved several centuries. Later, and we'll come to that in a second. But just staying with China in the seventeenth century their commanding was so prevalent, it even made its way into the writing of the time is that right? So this is a scholar named Sony. Shing he was born in the late sixteenth century. And unlike many of the scholars of the time he also paid acute attention to many of the crafts that he saw in his travels observing the uses of call in various crafts for on porcelain making to metallurgy, and he also described various methods of coal mining, including the uses of bamboo pipes to pipe out poison gas into us s ventilation in coal mines now by this time Darren seventeenth century. It wasn't just China using coal. Tell me why countries would were turning to it to us for fuel. We've got a whole series of things going on during the Cromwell in peer too. That's the period in British history where you've got the civil war, and there's a predominance of charcoal law the sort of the. Biproduct of charcoal burning from timber is used for metalworking for I'm production, and that's a really precious resource. The woods would disappearing so quickly in the south of Britain that there was an act of pollen stopping them from doing this because there wasn't enough which to build warships anymore. So there's this going on. And then also you've got in the middle of Britain playschool, coal brookdale, the Darby start experimenting with colza means of producing all in as well. So there's a whole series of different socio economic and industrial things happening at the same time in different pressures pushing everyone towards coop pointed only really been the northeast of Britain where they've been a lot of co exported, but we're not just talking about right now we were talking about other parts of the world other parts of Europe. Oh, yes. Because of the forest depletion. Yes. The early coalfields in northern France in Belgium, they slowly start develop Germany as well. Because there's a realization gradually that there's. Colin Mambi belts across northern and western Europe. So they start to work on idea. Well, let's look at the UK which is associated with the dramatic technological developments. Brought about by coal from the eighteenth century onwards. And Cole was transforming cities from Newcastle to London to Manchester..

"Now, former leader of Australia's may not position party is switching sides me. Switching size of the country's most prominent right wing, indeed hard ripe movement. Mark Maytham looked on course to become a straight is prime minister fifteen years ago, though, instead he led labor to defeat. Now. He's joining the one nation party is some of what he had to say explaining that. During an interview with Australia's today program. The number one issue in Sydney is either population either development, the CD becoming unlivable in dysfunctional and at federal level playboy who got to change the site like invite one nation to send a message to cut the immigration rights with one hundred thousand extra plea coming into Sydney, and it's tight level bene- planning to make sure we darned have either development that we have an indoor role. Sprawl rows of apartment towers, clogging up city. That's not the Sydney Australia. Why? Federal and state elections coming up in the next six months is a good alternative to the major parties that have lost control of Sydney's Letham. Speaking Australian television, well, Monaco correspondent in Sydney's Clarisa survive Montefiore, she's on the line now. Montlake is a man who has we say nearly became prime minister then from left wing policy joins the far. Right. That's quite a big shift. It's definitely a big shift as you said he was defeated in the two thousand and full election. And then he stood for the labour party, which is left center left. So he's gone from the mole left-wing party to the to the to the fall foul rights. Yes. He's planning to run this for the state governments in east, South Wales. He is exactly. And to do that. He'll be New South Wales. Branch leader Pauline Hanson's, one nation party one nation is well known here for perhaps you might call it listen questionable values around race. And on it's in its very route politics what we heard in that on one won't television into another entity that he gave to the he said that. Discrimination of any kind is bad which suggests that he may not have done a great deal of research about the party his joined, yes. Yes. Well, Pauline Hanson, she famously wore burqa to you the Senate in in two thousand seventeen to sort of to make a point on. It was really a massive publicity stunt that went down like a lead Blaine. And then more recently, she a a n. The Senate which was quite cold. It's okay to be white. She ranted against anti racism and said that you know, she had to quote acknowledge the deplorable rise of anti white racists attacks on western civilization. And that it is okay. To be white that got Perez pare back very very close to to going through the Senate. But it also caused absolute outrage in Australia, where racism is still considered a problem here in montlake house being sacked as a host on Sky News. He's been filed as a newspaper columnist you could interpret this as a loss throw of the dice by figure who's very much amount of the past. Yes. It does seem like it's definitely a move that. We'll get him back in the headlines, however, briefly that is and will make a splash, which I'm sure he definitely is aware. All I mean, news dot com dot AU, which is a new site. Here said the headline which I think ready sums it up. The question on everyone's lips. How long are the alliance polling Hanson actually lost? So I'm not sure that people think wouldn't necessarily be a long term alliance. What it does do is a track to tension for one nation. Get them headlines. Get them talked about there is a general election in Australia in the next six months as widespread assumption that Labor's going to do well in that election could this make that task of bit harder for them. I think so mean, it's definitely a burst for right wing politics. Not much told Australian channel nine television. That labor and the coalition have got the same policies, it's important to give people the choice. So that's the I did send two left in the center right is offering the same thing. Sorry, obviously of one nation failed recently at the ballot box not thousand and seventeen. Western Australian state election in Queensland, which is pulling Hanson's high state used to being popular than it is now. And of course, she she enjoyed the balance of power in the upper house and the Senate in two thousand sixteen but that the party then split with the resignation of several several of numbers..

Well, this is exactly my point as a native son of New South Wales myself. I am not aware that AllState has ever received a single complaint from the people of South Wales. If you were right next to the fine people of South Wales might be different. The implication is they are owed South Wales and we know nobody wants to be owed southwards you raise you raise a slightly serious point, but I think what we're all missing is the ethnic dimension.

If they can get this done and the Gaumont at least thinks it has got a formula can live within. They can move on.
