How are they making money online?
"This video listen, we're gonna take a look at some of the examples of affiliate sites, and how that making the money. The first start. We're going to look at as an example of an affiliate side promoting affiliate products with a smattering of Ed since it's quite a lodge site with a lot of things going on inside it when you first visit the site. It seems like information overload. It looks difficult to tell way to go a watering. I, however if you click around the side of it and read some of the articles, you see that eventually all roads lead to the product review pages or directly to affiliate programs. Let's take a look at the top programme reviews page at the top of the page. The Phillies has a six displaying the five star white game programs clicking on the product. Name. Takes you directly to the merchants page through the affiliates link. Incidentally, you may notice this affiliate has stopped most of his affiliate links being displayed in the status bar when you hover over them by using a small piece of Java script this makes the link. More tractive too nervous click who might be scared away by. By the complicated. Looking you arou- and also helps to prevent link hijacking. If you don't directly click through to the merchant side, you can choose to read the affiliates short or full reviews of each product, the short reviews appear further down the same page, while the full reviews have a whole paid to themselves. The review for the recommended products Aaron standardly glowing. These are five star products after all and again include the affiliates affiliate link. So how much is this affiliate earning from these links? If you click on no-nonsense bodybuilding, you'll take in through to the merchant side, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you'll see the affiliates link to the affiliate program page if you follow this avoid the pop up box and Wade through the sales pitch for the fully program. You'll see that the merchant pay seventy five percent commissions on the product, which costs seventy seven dollars knitting the affiliate fifty three dollars per sale. You'll also see there is an additional revenue to be gained from up cells. And one time offers some affiliate products won't have they're fully at information. So readily available if you can't find an affiliate's link on the product page, try going to the click Bank marketplace, and you should be able to find the product you're looking for for example, if we try the keyword muscle. We'll see all the usual suspects. If we scroll down the page, a little we can see another of the fillets recommended products muscle gaining secrets, and you can see that. This affiliation is earning thirty eight dollars fifty three on each sale. He refers from his page which works out to be fifty percent of the list price, which is seventy seven dollars. Let's not bed. Now, if you tuned to the affiliates program review page, you'll see that further down the page, the Phillies it lists products. That don't get the five star seal of approval, he also provides links to reviews of these not recommended type products, which explain why then recommended reading has review. Use a dozen Dade sound like he knows what he's talking about his reviews, a credible and Samed unbiased most of them don't seem to have affiliate programs, and he hasn't bothered to link to them through a fully at links. So why would an affiliate review products? If he isn't getting anything out of it. Well, I makes his other of us look credible simply listing a whole bunch of products. That are really great seems a little unbalanced seekin -ly. He's able to attract people who are searching for those particular products. And search engines if they searched for those products, they may end up on one of his review pages with I would read his negative review of the product the Phillies hopes to make the customer reconsider the decision to buy the product. In question. What opportunities are available. In fact, the affiliate has quite clearly and -ticipant this response and placed a number of hiring five star recommended products at the bottom of the page readers of their. Review can click through to his favorable reviews of these products or simply go through the merchant site directly. If we leave the review sections now and take a look at one of the adcose on the site. You can see that this affiliates. Also owning money through having ED's since ED's on his side. You can tell these red since ED's because they say ED's by Google at the top there. You'll notice that the ads are pretty relevant to the content on the page. That's all automatically worked out by the ad network. Who in this case is Google? Finally, if we go back to the homepage one more time and scroll to the bottom of the page. You can also see that the affiliate has Asana box for his get big easing this twice monthly publication. As apparently full of informative articles acquistion or non section site. Updates and more this affiliate will probably use this easing either as an additional place to promote affiliate products to get as rate is Beck to his website by providing snippets of new articles with. The read more link by getting read is back to his side. He's able to expose them to more promotions. The Knicks site will look at is one that appears on page one of Google's results for the popular term hat to approach woman. One of the first things you hit with when you visit the site is a pop up box that offers you a package of free online listens. All you have to do is into your name and Email address the affiliate has also given these listens a dollar value recommended retail price of forty seven dollars, and you're getting it free. So I can get feedback. People love thinking that getting a great deal. So adding adult value even to products, you giving away is a very common tactic for intimate, Marcus. You'll notice he's gonna step further and created some sense of urgency by hinting that the cost won't be free forever. This free course offer is a variation of what we saw on the last side to newsletter sign up box by off. Hiring people something concrete, the free six pots at auction course as opposed to something vague, for instance, at informative newsletter you essentially reduce people's anxiety about signing up for something. This is why you'll see so many six part many courses littered around the internet. Not only is it a mini course as opposed to a newsletter, but the visitor only needs to commit to six listens. As opposed to potentially unending subscription by lowering the perceived commitment involved in signing up for something you'll find that people are more willing to give you the Email address. So what happens when you sign up for these free listens. The affiliate will probably seen data. Listen from the mini course every day or every couple of days for a period of time. The listens will direct the Rita Beck to the website. So that he or she can be exposed to more promotions and affiliate ED's. In addition to the freely since then once the Rada has received all of the free lessons. They will likely. Be added to the affiliates. Regular news littlest unless they unsubscribe. They will receive occasional news or promotions from the affiliate but less frequently than with the listens. If this Philly is smart he will continue to provide good contain to his list and not just use it as a vehicle for pushing affiliate products. You need to give your raiders good reasons to open your emails and not just seen them straight to the trash folder. Now. If you close that box in look on the front page, you can see that right away, the Phillies has launched into affiliate product reviews. He's written a glowing review for online pickup secrets at the top of the page and given it five stars. If you hover over the click here to check out online pickup secrets now link. You can't tell right away that there's an affiliate link because it points to a page on the affiliates website, if you visit that page, however, it will automatically and instantly redirect to the merchant side through the affiliate link. This is a very popular technique Noronha because it looks lists artificial to a nervous clicker, but also because it can help prevent link hijacking. So how much will the Philly unify by the? On game through his link. Let's find out if you click through to the online game site and scroll to the bottom of the page, you'll see a small affiliates link if you click this link you'll be taken to a page of information about the Phillies program, you can see that you loon commissions of thirty nine dollars seventy one per sale, which is five percent of the price of the product. Now that is not too bad back to the front page. You can also see that the affiliate has reviewed numerous other products all linked to in the sidebar, if you scroll down to the bottom of the main page below another sign up form for the six pod. Course, you'll see he recommends another course quite highly fireworks with females if you click through one of the links the're and scroll to the bottom of that page, you'll find a link to that affiliate program the commissions for this us seventy percent with the price of thirty seven dollars. That's a commission of around twenty six dollars per sale for this product, you can also get commissions on. A few up sell products that they offer any customer. So that's a look at where the money's coming from. Let's take a look at how the sod is appearing. So highly in the search engines, if you go back to the main your own wingmen side, you see that below the list of reviews in the sidebar there are links to almost fifty articles teaching you about various subjects relating to meeting and dating women each article contains links to the most recommended products, and at the end another opportunity to sign up for the six pot seduction coasts, it's likely that this affiliate has created articles based around popular search terms, but at the same time, he's probably trying to boost his relevance in the eyes of the search engines by having a lot of content appropriate for a dating or attracting woman website. Now, let's take a look at the desired action and the flow of traffic through an affiliate site affiliates should gently direct people towards the action, which makes them the most money when you looking at affiliate sites like this one and indeed. When you're planning your own affiliate sites. Ask yourself what is the affiliate trying to make you do? Or what you want your own visitor to do question that desired action, the affiliate is pushing for do they want you to read their articles sign up for the newsletter click on their ads, you'll often find yourself being gently directed towards a certain action and one way or another. This will be what the affiliate determines to be. The course that will eventually get him or her the most money in this case, we can see the Phillies promoting his news littlest VERA heavily it appears as a pop up when you first visit the side. So he obviously wants you to sign up for that before you do anything else. Once you've signed up for the news later all closed the box, you'll presented with his most recommended product. The online game gets five stars and features at the top of most articles on the side. So that's the one he really wants you to click through to fireworks with females is the Knicks. Fist option with Ben is on most pages. And recommendations at the end of most articles, it also gets a five star rating in his review there are at least twenty other of us on the side, many of them featuring very high ratings, but the ones you see most often the online game and fireworks with females. These two products probably bringing the based retuned for this affiliate. When you good leave his side. You get a message thanking you for coming to the site with an offer to sign up to the six, pack course, again, he doesn't want you to leave without at least giving him your Email address. Don't forget that these listens of value forty seven dollars and are yours for free. He's put a lot of effort into getting you to site in the first place you not escaping so easily. So how about we take a look at those listens. He's provided while there is a lot of content on the side. The listens are not where he wants you to go. If you happen to arrive on the front page hat, can you tell well before? Or you get to the articles you have to get pasta compelling review on the main page and scroll through links to around twenty different product reviews in the side menu. Most people end up reading the reviews, I and click through to recommended products, what this affiliate is saying is that if you happen to arrive at one of the content pages because it appeared in the search engine fun. He can promote to you there. But the page that converts to sows bist as the review on the front page. Of course, all this assumes that the Phillies has considered these things Sedley many affiliates. Don't put much thought into how the visit as flow through their sites. So they're not able to make the most of their traffic, so far we've looked to sites that are primarily sit up to make money from affiliate programs. The next couple of science will look at I sit up primarily in money from a cost per click context ads like those serve bug. Goo goo, Ed since to refresh your knowledge, you might remember that context. Ed's new money. For each person who visits your site and clicks on the ads the network automatically generates the ads, and you insert them into your side, just by copying us small piece of code. The biggest context Ed network is Google Ed since so a lot of people including us will use the word Ed since when really that talking about context ED's in general sites that are in money primarily from these contexts ED's do so by capitalizing on either high traffic in that particular market or revenues for clicks. Of course, the biz situation would be to have a high traffic market with high paying ED's if you can find one of those markets, and rank Welford even bidder here, the three ways, you could earn lace forty dollars a day through context adds, maybe five hundred clicks it I- cents. A click hundred twenty-five clicks at thirty two cents. A click twenty clicks, two dollars a click. One example sought earning money off low paying Ed since ED's but hot. Ethic is he cut advice? Don't come. The hairstyles market has a huge number of people searching on each month but relatively little in the way of affiliate activity because there aren't many high paying affiliate programs on this market. You may wonder why there are few affiliate programs for such popular topic. But if you consider the demographic searching for his style, you realize many adjust after he installed, pictures and advice, not only that most don't want to pay for anything. They believe this information should be free. Generally, if there's nobody willing to pay money for things in a market. There aren't going to be many products with Philip programs. The Soza means that the Ed since ED's for that market won't be huge amount. Either. There's not enough competition to drive the prices up and no justification for paying a large amount. However, the sod still manages to earn a modest amount each day purely just because it's built around such a highly search for topic you can see that the side has a lot of content and couple of sections with ED's in them with the telltale ED's by Google not at the top Google Ed saints will allow up to three Ed blocks on each page of your website as you can see the site also promotes a couple of affiliate programs, but not very heavily. Let's take a look at an example for this is a blog website entrepreneurs Jimmy dot com. A lot of people consider a blog to be an extra something you take onto the end of you website. But there are many affiliates out there running blogs as they main Filat side instead of creating articles. They write blog posts over time. These can build up quite a large body of work. One good example of this kind of affiliate marketing is entrepreneurs journey dot com. The author of this blog money by discussing affiliate products, rather than simply rotting reviews or piloting ED's on a side. He uses his blog to discuss affiliate products that aren't newsworthy would this foam it the news take center stage while affiliate link become secundary, take a closer look at this link. And this post he recommends waiver, but that's not the primary purpose of the blog post often in the course of discussing things related to internet marketing, you'll mention products that just happened to have affiliated grams the author of the site Oshima's money through other activities, which wouldn't typically be classified as affiliate marketing since the not hyphen performance. But we'll take a look at them while we're here. Writing reviews for review me dot com. This is review writing with a twist while this affiliate might write reviews with an h promoting affiliate products. He also ends money by writing reviews through review me dot com. The site matches reviews often blog owners with people wanting the product website reviewed the person receiving the review pays an amount of money to review me, don't come depending on the price of the review, which is determined by the quality and popularity of the reviewing side for a lot of sites looking for reviews. The cost of getting reviewed while we listened the cost of purchasing a link from popular website for the review. Well, they get money and adding reviews to this gives them contained what about this. Placing takes link heads on a site through takes link ED's dot com and through private takes link campaigns and bene- campaigns takes link ED's dot com as kind of a cross between traditional link buying and selling and Ed networks like Google Ed since takes link ED's dot com X as a go between for publishes an linked buys, you insert a snippet of code into your sought and takes link ED's essentially sell space on your side the ads appear. On your side. And you get half the amount that the person buying the link pace. I'm like Ed since this isn't a cost per click. Ed assume you get paid regardless of whether anybody clicks on the link, this is because the primary reason for buying a link through ticks link heads comb is to gain a link back to your side to help your search engine optimization efforts on the other hand private ad campaigns, a simply private arrangements between the site owner and another side you link to me, I pay you. This could be arranged on a daily weekly or even monthly basis. As a side note, the author of this blog has conveniently written an article analyzing his own side himself. Check it out here. All right in this. Listen you've seen four different affiliate sites. Earning money through a variety of methods, which include product reviews newsletter. Subscriptions context ED's black Ed since we've also seen a few methods of making money that wouldn't traditionally be classed as Phillies marketing such as selling et spice on your website. Joining lick brokering networks like takes link ED's dot com or even writing reviews through review brokering Szots like review me dot com. That's all we've got for this particular video. Listen, thank you so much for watching. And we'll see you gainst them by now.
Practical support and how to access it
"What practical support is available to me during the pandemic and how can I access it? Hello, I'm M abhi and Welcome to our coronavirus series of talking cancer a podcast from McMillan and Boots where I get to talk to experts to get answers to the questions. McMillan is hearing the most off today. I'm joined by McMillan's chief medical officer the brilliant Rosie Loftus and Boots his chief pharmacist Mark Donovan to talk about the Practical support available for those affected by cancer and now people can access that support. I know our colleagues really value their ability to make a difference in people's lives as they go through their experience with cancer will all touch on the latest government guidance and what it means in practice for people living with cancer. If you are asked to attend an appointment, please do keep it and feel confident in doing so we'll also be hearing some updates from Mandy things that keep you connected with people. It's not the same as in person, but it is a good substitute if these are your circumstances now, we know that these recent changes page. Make some people feel very anxious and worried. Please have a listing back to episode 2 of the podcast if you're looking for some guidance and helpful tips about managing your mental health during the pandemic. We're McMillan and we're kicking cancer Rosie and Mark welcome back lovely to have you with us now as in the other episodes we've recorded. I'm going to time stamp this and we're recording this on the 23rd of October 2020 and all the information that we talked about is correct at the time of recording in episode one we discussed what people can do if they're struggling with the new often virtue of two ways of interacting with GPS Specialists and Healthcare professionals, the millions support line team are still receiving some calls about this. So I'd recommend that anyone worried about that particular issue liquid back to episode one for more information loads of great advice there. However, for some people physical appointments and treatments in hospitals GP surgeries and pharmacies are going ahead but Standardly people may be feeling very anxious about the safety of this while covid-19 is still very much present Rosie what precautions are in place in hospitals and Health Care settings at the moment and how are they making these environments as safe as they possibly can for patients? Yeah. Thanks emigrate to be back. Thank you very much. And as you say we talked about some aspects of this last time obviously, it's totally natural to worry about going for appointments. All of us are anxious at the best of times where when doing this but of course now, there's all the added concerns and Logistics on top of that but you know, he was telling me that actually they're really reassured by all the precautions that they see once they arrive. So again last time we did talk about that shift from not quite so many face-to-face appointments and some telephone or video. So that does actually help because that means there are actually less people going through the hospital and of course when you get there, you'll might have a timed entry you might be asked to log In your vehicle until your appointment time and some places are even giving page or alerts out. I know one of our McMillan information centers that same close to one of the hospitals. In fact, right next door. They've opened up their car park to allow people to part there and indeed if you aren't traveling by car, they're also allowing people to wait inside and the hospitals just buzzing straight across when they're ready for the patient off. And of course, there's all the cleanliness precautions Jetta at the doors PPE and for the staff in particular and then the red and green channels in the hospital so areas where cancer patients would be kept well away from potential infection risk and deep cleaning is just going on relentlessly. So I suppose I'd say there are so many precautions in place. The most important thing is that if you are asked to attend an appointment, please do keep it and feel confident in doing so and one last thing just following up on some of the conversation we had last time about the challenges of not being dead. Take someone to your appoint. Yes. Yes. Some of that is lightning up a little bit in some particular circumstances not across the board, but it it's really important so do ask because it might actually be possible that you can take someone to some of your appointments actually from a personal perspective a friend of mine one for her yearly check-up post treatment for breast cancer yesterday and the situation about taking a couple had changed so so she was able to take somebody with her not all the way. That's great. You make sure you ask. Yeah. Absolutely you did just touch on that lightly not everybody is able to be picked up from the front doorstep and dropped at the at the door of the hospital her many people public transports. The only way they're going to get to these appointments and that has its own level of risk and its own level of anxiety as well. What steps can patients take to ensure they are traveling safely themselves really understandable that you're going to be worrying about this and actually you might be worrying about it and feel I really can't bother people. Hospital or my health care teams to talk about this but actually you absolutely should it may well be that there are options that they can do to modify something simple like Changing Times of appointments. So you're not traveling that busy times and might be able to actually organize things so that for example a blood test might be closer to home. So so please do ask if there are any options to explore if you do have to travel then definitely follow the guidelines travel in a bubble where possible if you've got to travel in a taxi, for example where a mass can open the window and not follow the guidelines which you will find online and I know also that some of our McMillan information centers have been linking locally to see what transport services are available. So again, just whereas to assist with this if you're worrying about this ask there's so much talk of what's online and there's so much information online and I know for for some people who maybe don't have access to computers job Or a little bit older and there are people on the end of a phone on there at the hospitals at appointments that and people are willing to talk and explain through the processes that you might have to that. You might expect them very definitely again. I can only reiterate that on that men and support line. Is there also and we'll be able to answer these queries a direct you to any of our local services. So absolutely people are available at the edge of a phone be that your health care team or indeed the mcmillans support line. So absolutely you don't have to go online that there will be someone at the end of a telephone line. And so please pick up the phone and asked I think you know, when you have a cancer diagnosis, it's again creating levels of anxiety. Very basically though. How does the shielding measure that one place in lockdown Mary with these the the new three-tier system that's been introduced by the government recently. So, I think the most important thing is that you do need to check the local restrictions and guidelines. For your area and if you've got any specific concerns about this, then do check in again with your health care team. They might be able to advise about any adjustments and be able to reassure you about precautions. We are advised that there will be a letter coming from the government to people who are on the extremely vulnerable list and to explain to them what advice they need to take and that length is is immanent but I think it's really important at the moment with the rapid change. We're seeing and different geographical areas that you make sure that you're up to date on what the local advice is Margaret. Yes, Rosie mentioned obviously for pharmacies across the UK the changing restrictions and tear system is meaning that you guys as well having to be quite reactive quickly to to make the experience of being able to get along bonuses or access to information from you guys available quickly and safely. Yes. I am I Rosie it is confusing isn't it? And t as in England firebreaks lockdowns in in school? Northern Ireland and Wales. It is very important that you stay close to the local guidance and guidance on travel but for pharmacies are open as as they have been all along through this pandemic and and we continue to be open for advice and you can access your medication and there are rules and support on on doing that. So so feel free not only need to access them physically on the High Street, but also ring ahead and to Rosie's point, you know pharmacies are available to advise. If you have any questions on on how to access medicine or get them delivered or how to help order your prescription with your GP too. Lovely. Thank you. If there was one starting point that people can go to what's your advice about the first starting point for God in your local area many people will have already been on the gulf. UK website which is updated regularly, and actually you will be able to look for your local area on there. What I would also say is we talked on the phone. When we were talking previously about the map milenkovic Hub, which has lots of information to support cancer patients through the pandemic and on that Hub. You will find the update option but also with a link straight through to the gov UK because obviously if things as we said last time sometimes things get changed on a Saturday evening at 10:00, but you can get to the gov UK website from that map milenkovic and Mark once again, you know, the Practical resources available to be able to access medication from your perspective where where do people go immediately to find jobs that well, you can contact your local pharmacy. Of course, they will still be access and support for medication access for food delivery slots are still available etc. For those people home building or a vulnerable. We also have launched recently a virtual boots McMillan information pharmacist, actually. So so you could go Two Boots.com forward slash McMillan & Pub. An appointment with a pharmacist to be able to help talk you through any concerns or questions that you have around medication or wider issues with your cancer experience and we'd be able to jump in that way which is something that we started to bring in at the beginning of the pandemic earlier this year and something that many patients have hand care is to have have begun to access. So it's another way of life some of that advice there's lots of ways and lots of support available. So look at MacMillan support helpline and website as well as the boots website to be able to access that support Boise. It's always a difficult conversation and subject matter, but we need to talk about a very sensitive area that people are struggling with which is palliative care and especially palliative care in the community and the the vehicle T in contacting the appropriate Healthcare professionals, what practical steps can people take to understand more about their own or family members palliative care options during this time? Awesome, as you say palliative care is so very sensitive at all times and even more so a more challenging with all the restrictions at present, but I think the first thing I want to say is that for more than thirty years as a GP a really can't emphasize enough how important it is to actually have conversations understanding how very difficult that is the actually it's really important and I don't mean they're just conversations with your health care team, but also with your family and friends it's not easy starting those conversations, but over the years, I've seen a huge benefits as a result of those very open conversations. So in terms of practical, you know you it's important to say that palliative care is still available whether that's through District nurses GPS and Specialists or or at the hospice and some of these Services may be doing less face-to-face visits right now and trying obviously wrong. You reduce the risk and the spread of infection, but they all still there. They are still accessible and they have so much to offer in terms of supporting with physical symptoms and also emotional and practical support. It's a very isolating times, you know, without the pandemic. So to to know that this is still available and with conversations and bought some some persistence and supports that that kind of level of support is still there. Yeah, and and I I just had that I think also be really clear when you're engaging with these surfaces off then we'll contact numbers or available to you and and you know, which ones to use for when in many instances there will be a 24 hour line for you to access for queries. So do it may ask, you know to to know where people will be at the end of the line. And again, of course McMillan website has lots of information relating to palliative care some of it that would help you start those conversations job. And of course never forget that you kind of course contact the support line as well. Thank you Rosie. Thank you. Mark questions about cancer boots and McMillan A by your side took the moment. You're diagnosed through your treatment and beyond our boots McMillan information pharmacists are on hand with Specialists support from helping you make sense of your diagnosis back to advice about living with cancer. You can find them in your local boots Pharmacy or online via video appointment visit boots.com for more information subject to Farmer availability. Amanda and I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and June first phase of code reader was classed as extremely clinically vulnerable. So shielded at home for a hundred days. We have much contact with anybody. I found it really hard to get a food slot start with but then through the local Council I was able to get a secured time slot on the supermarket of my choice and also they would check just to make sure and make me aware that there were local charity group setting up to do shopping as he needed it and the hospital how much they're covid-19 case on Point Break arrival clean masks temperature check kind of the questionnaire every visit temperature again, when you got to the department you were going to hand sanitizer of a sanitized within an inch of my life during that that particular. If there's a standard if you need if you can't find it you need to be able to ask someone you get quite resourceful as your cancer experience goes on to me. That's where my job I mean you all like the 50 mergency service you're on speed dial. It is developed making connections with people the online Forum on McMillan website for me there a secondary support groups stay connected with people things that keep you connected with people. It's not the same as in person, but it is a good substitute if these are your circumstances them some really useful tips there from Monday Mark. Now this episode on practical support you mentioned earlier a law, which I want to know a little bit more about cuz it sounds very exciting. It's the perfect opportunity really right now to delve into the wonderful support on offer from the partnership between boots and McMillan. So tell us a little bit off more about that. Well, yes the partnership started actually in in 2009. I was there at the beginning seems an awful long time ago, but I remember being really excited about this partnership as a wage. Started together McMillan's a wonderful charity and as a pharmacist the whole organization got behind the partnership and it was raising money through doing silly things of colleagues up and down the UK you through all of our different stores, you know, I at one time a number of years ago. I I even ran the London Marathon my legs are still recovering actually eight years on thought it was but but we were all behind this wonderful partnership and raised a lot of money over nineteen million so far with her boots McMillan partnership, this partnership has created found deeper connections than just a fundraising partnership and and soon after the partnership started sadly, you know, I had a real close up experience of the power of the partnership. My father was just diagnosed with cancer a mesothelioma, you know a cancer the lining of the lung developed over many years through exposure from asbestos and and he was diagnosed in the birth. And sadly passed away the following March and he was he was you know, my hero. I loved him so much and and lots of other people loved him too. And and he had a quite a complicated life experience of cancer. It was it was painful and he was in and out of hospice and there was lots of lots of messing around and and I had been a pharmacist that point for a number of years and I dealt with people, you know affected by cancer on a on a day-to-day basis I guess but it wasn't until I was on the other side of that experience. I realized that we could do better as pharmacists as pharmacists teens Rosie just mentioned it earlier about the power of conversations and and I couldn't agree more that didn't like to talk about things. He didn't complain about anything. He you know, he didn't want to worry any any of us really but I do remember having a conversation with him about dying, you know, and and like I said Rosie said it's so important. Have you know many of our conversations when he was going through? This was was you know, I've had a good day or a bad day. And then occasionally we we had some opportunities just to talk a little bit about deeper and I value those conversations and I remember a conversation turned out to be 2 weeks before he passed away. I promised him something then that something good would come out of this experience that he was having. You know, I I saw how much of a difference that his Pharmacy made in taking some of the hassle out of his experience, you know home is it's a whole load of things to cope with when you go in through cancer and I I know the pharmacy didn't think that they were helping that much and having that much of an impact, but they really were so long. So we we took that away and developed this boots McMillan Information Program just to take this partnership to a deeper more connected sort of level and and and then, you know recognition Using that beauty and feeling good is important for people when experiencing cancer as well. So we then developed boots McMillan Beauty je vais a role as well. And and as of the end of August, we we have over 2,000 boots McMillan information pharmacist. We have over a thousand boots McMillan beauty advisors, you know, they fundraise they advised they improve local connections with cancer teams and connect Healthcare professionals too. And it's wonderful to see it grow. It's wonderful to be a partnership that is more than just fundraising because I know our colleagues really value their ability and to make a difference in people's lives as they go through their experience with cancer. What was your dad's name? His name was Grenville Grenville. Thank you very much a legacy a legacy and home. Such an incredible journey you and melon have had together. Just tell us a little bit about as well that the boots McMillan information pharmacists another it's a very specific role that has been created. What could what can somebody expect if they are hoping to have a chat or an appointment with one of these guys? Will they get extra training for MacMillan, you know wider support or pharmacist own know about medicines and can advise around side effects and what to expect but you know, there's there's other things isn't there, you know, the fatigue the I was fascinated, you know that how to look after your skin if you're going through radiotherapy and watch soaps to use and you know, we we've trained our Pharmacists and our Beauty advises to to help on those more practical different areas that perhaps wage who who are affected by cancer don't want to ask their consultant about that they fear or they hadn't and they remember later on, you know, our boots McMillan information pharmacist said there to answer those questions signposts log. The services they can get identified by a little McMillan badge that they were in in our pharmacies or if you go onto a boots.com you can you could find your closest information pharmacist for you to go in and have a chat to really do you need to make an appointment to go in Marko. I mean if you're there and you see something I didn't know that about the that's how you identify boots my billing information pharmacist by the badge. I didn't know that so that's that's that's great. That's great to know. Yeah, and you can you can go onto boots.com forward slash McMillan and and you can search where your local store is and we took you whether or not that store has a boots McMillan information pharmacist or a boots McMillan beauty advisor. You don't need to make an appointment. You can just go and see them and they'll be able to answer your questions and sign post on and off further advice. And and like I said, you know through the pandemic we've developed the roll into a virtual information pharmacist. Now you do need to make an appointment with that of course, but you go online to make that appointment log. And and then we will connect you with a a virtual pharmacist. Like I said and you can talk to them through an application and see them ask their questions. If you age afraid of going out or can't get out you can still have the service and and a number of people are finding that really helpful as as you know, they struggle getting out and about at this time. Absolutely. I used to I remember when my mom was sick. She was she was so concerned with her feet not being really dry and an uncomfortable and we used to be in Boots the whole time making sure her faith Comforts those things. There's the Practical things isn't it? The little things they make a huge difference like a huge difference indeed Rosie McMillan has got other Partnerships as well in place to enable people with cancer to get practical support. What does that look like? What else is there that it might be worth exploring. We do have lots of other Partnerships as well. We've partnered with Nationwide for example for over 25 years and off. So Lloyds Bank Bank of Scotland and Halifax and the joy of this is that this is how we're able to help people with one of those worries Finance is a huge worry for people going through cancer for for lots of reasons. So and has trained the staff at these Banks so that they actually understand the specific impact of cancer on people's finances. And so that being trained in that they can then offer their expert practical advice in relation to managing finances personal banking mortgage has credit cards. So again, there's more information about these Partnerships on our website. So please do access them Mark Rosie as always just so full of information and great great advice and support package. If I'm going to I'm going to try and pin you both down to try and highlight the one piece of advice that you think is going to be the most useful for people who are finding themselves really struggling at the moment with practical support during this hideous job. And demek Mark. What what would your what would your piece of advice be? I'd say talk to people. That's what I'd say. I think there's lots and lots of advice around. Lots of people don't know what that advice is or supporters, but talk to McMillan talk to our pharmacists talk to you consultant. Don't suffer all on your own. There are people around to help Rosie opening. You're going to Waco that I'm going to work over there and I'm going to be really sneaky. I know you said you were going to try and pin us down him a but can I can I go for two and then you can actually to be fair it's because they're not really mine. They're both from a patient who spoke to me this week about her lockdown experience and as we know it's so hard also for family and friends when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer and often. It's such a struggle for those people to understand how best to help and support and at the moment it it that's again even more difficult because there are so so many fewer options off. And what she said was that actually she found it really helpful to just directly asked family and friends and ask for specific help. Okay, and she said things like can we have a telephone call and woke up her or an online couple or could you get to the shops and get me this and maybe if it was a treatment day, you know, could you cook an extra couple of portions of food and just leave them on the doorstep and not wishing to encourage any infection risk, obviously, so really practical things and the other thing she said which was obviously music to her ears and and great because that that that you know, that's what melons here for but she said the other thing she found really useful was what she described as many as clear and understandable information and just to know that Matt Millen was there and had her needs at its heart. So I suppose what I'd be saying is please do use all the information and support that MacMillan and boots have had, you know be that members online community for peer support all the support line and a nod See all the boot services that Mark has talked about and and all this information. You'll you'll find on the website. It's absolutely brilliant, and I just, you know, it's encouraging everybody to to pass this podcast around so that we can we can just get as many people to know about all the Fantastic stuff that is out there in this incredibly difficult time Mark Rosie.

Thailand's new visa troubles
"Now unless you're an expat living in Thailand or a regular business traveler to that country perhaps you've probably never heard of the TM thirty visa tobacco tobacco in recent months though it's been causing outrage among the Southeast Asian nations one million strong expert community it stems from a forty year old law that has never have been enforced until now with Thai chilies determined to crack down on international criminals hiding out in the country South East Asia correspondent Catherine. This has the story I finally landed my dream job. I was now a foreign correspondent but little did I know just how long it would take to get my visa or all that I was flying into the middle of visa crackdown controversy facing foreigners the topic of conversation tonight as you can see is Thailand's controversial immigration Russian laws and the consequences will come back to that but first we need to go through a little history it all comes down to a low written almost forty a US ago after the fall of the Kamei Rouge regime in Cambodia in nineteen seventy nine. There was a major influx of refugees across the border. People people were also coming in via boat from Vietnam so as a security measure tile authorities put reporting requirements in place to monitor the movement amount of foreigners but as with much in Southeast Asia it was never publicly enforced until now under the system all non immigrant visa holders that is any expat living in the country is now required along with their landlord to report win they leave their home province and upon their overturn within twenty four hours every single time so for example if you live in Bangkok and traveled to poo kit for the Kent you're required to report and of course the system used to enforce it doesn't work so smoothly as you can imagine being a foreign foreign correspondent. I travel a lot for this job like many other experts so Wanda standardly it's causing furor among the Expat community immunity and has become such a hot topic of discussion over drinks at Thailand's foreign correspondent club. The board invited immigration officials to explain blind why it was needed. Dominic folder chaired the discussion. This law is from forty years ago from the Cold War period and the bureaucracy that is being applied to administer it is from the same era. How can you justify this. They they onerous for seizure this procedure that causes a lot of difficulty an inconvenience to people. I can absolutely understand that skip your heart Tom doing that but understand us. You're going to know that you start that hot. We've tried to make things easy. System is erratic non-functioning so basically a system has been launched which people like this are expected to deal with the does not work is is that a good way of doing things is about telling your wife that you're already at home. Trust me is went back and forward like these four hours with the immigration officials giving away little to satisfy the frustrations expressed by the crowd and insisting the changes are needed to catch foreign criminals both just going back to this idea of why why this suddenly became because nobody has noticed a particular deterioration and in the security situation in Thailand. It's not apparent on the outside surface things. It's been changing in the country Thailand in all over the world. The the criminal amid is getting stronger. The requirements are so onerous landlords some apartment complexes are erecting signs saying no oy foreigners while others jokingly say the new tourism slogan in Thailand is travel less. A group of experts have launched a petition against it and perhaps even more concerning is the impact on investment with some investors weighing up whether it's just too hard to do business here. Luckily Luckily I have a local office manager. Who's able to help me out with the paperwork but this was just one of the many steps required of me as I madly sought about getting Ching my visa. We started the process even before left Australia bought. It still took three months to gain approval. When I got an interview with the immigration in department fairly soon after my arrival I thought it would sail through but no it dragged on and on and because of the time it took I had to travel in and out of the country a few times to renew my tourist visa and then my husband and I were required to travel to the Thai Embassy in another country to register for a journalist visa. We thought we could go in and out in one day but as we eagerly lined up in a long line of other expensive tie embassy input on pen. We were told it would take three days to process. That's only gave us a three-month visa from there. We had to apply to extend it for for a year. I had started to wonder if I can get my visa before my year-long posting was over then a week later back in Bangkok and after hours of waiting in the immigration office we had good news. We finally gained approval a few days later. I found out I was being posted to our Washington Washington bureau so the process dance all over again. Let's hope this time it doesn't take quite so long. Catherine this with final report out of Bangkok.
Determining Interchangeable Species
"The often to the plan your window world of sherry. Hey there everybody you pop here. Founder of the school of evolutionary herbalism. And welcome to this week's episode here of the evolutionary herbalism blog and in this week's video going to be talking a bit about herbal adjuncts. You know one of the things they get a quick question about. A lot is different types of species or subspecies or varieties of medicinal plants and whether they're interchangeable with the primary species that we typically use in western herbalism. You know when you look up an urban certain books and things like that. It's really common to see you know the main species of plant. That's used and a lot of times. We think that that's the only species that we can use. But oftentimes with medicinal plants that are in their particular genus. There will be other species that can be used in the exact same way as the standardly accepted species that we typically use in herbal medicine. So how can you tell that right. How can you tell if maybe your local species of a particular plant can be used in the same way as the primary one used. And i think there's a number of ways that we can go about approaching this and i think one of the best ways is actually not too reliant on looking at up in a book but actually learning how to use your senses and specifically organic septic analysis in order to determine whether that species has medicinal properties are not so. That's what i'm going to be talking about in this week's episode. And i hope you enjoy it question number. Eight from tracy. Can you use any kind of passion flower. I have one growing here in portland. Non fruit bearing but has the same beautiful flowers. That's a good question. Tracy i wish i had a better answer for you for this. I'm going to go ahead. And say i don't know there are as far as i know. Multiple species of passiflora. The primary one that we use in western herbalism is passiflora. In-car nada and i might be incorrect on this from my understanding there is passiflora in-car nada but also potentially subspecies or sub varieties that yield different colored flowers or something like that. That are all used medicinally. So i would. I'm not totally sure. I mean my understanding is that passiflora in nada is you know is the main one used. I don't know if it's the main one used because it's the only medicinal variety. I don't know if it's just because that's the one that everyone got used to using and people will just focus on that and haven't used the other varieties of passion far. I am really not sure on that. My suggestion to you would be to make make a small amount of teacher out of one you have out of the you can use the leaf and the flower and try it out right. Maybe a good thing to do is to Get a bottle of of passiflora in-car nada and maybe if you can see what. The ratio the milliliters and graham ratio is a you know. Is it a one to five. Is it a one two and kind of assess the relative strength of a tincture and then prepare your passion flower tincture at that same ratio. And so then you'll have passiflora incur not say at a one to five and then your passion flower at a one to five and compare them right. Look at the difference in also you to see oh is this one prepared from fresh or dried and then compare the color compare the taste and compared the effects right. If you take some of your passion flower you find that it's has some anti spasmodic properties. You feel calm and sedated from it then absolutely super great and interchangeable and that's always a good sign so you know i think using. I think this is a good lesson for all of us here. Right is a us what you got around you if you can be. I'm sure standard herbalism says these are the species used but there might be other sub other species in that genus that perfectly applicable as a medicine. It's just not the standard. It's not the standardized Species used in herbalism and and being and learning how to assess the quality of medicine simply through right and this something that We went into some detail. Actually when i was studying at best year where we would for example. Take an herb and make that herb at a one to two strength the one to five strength of one to ten strength and notice the difference in flavor or we would take that same herb and do a one to five. In thirty percent alcohol a one to five and fifty percent of one to five and seventy percent a one to five and ninety percent and then tastes those rights same herbs same strength just different percentage alcohol or same herb. Same percentage alcohol different strength and really assess those okay. What's the ooh. Wow this one's way darker than that one or wow. This one's way more bitter than that one or you. This one is totally lacking the aromatic properties but this one's aromatic and being over to just tell which one is the better medicine right. And so i think this is one way that as a really valuable skill to have as an herbalist as how to assess the strength of your medicine without needing to do gas chromatography on it. Or hp l. c. on it to analyze the constituent profile. Or anything like that. It's like just look at it. Smell it taste it. Feel it experience. It and i think that's a really valuable skill as an herbalist for us to be able to really effectively assess the quality of our medicine simply through six So i would encourage you to do that. Tracy and play around with it and see what happens and maybe report back to us in the student. Teahouse what you discover so much for tuning into the plant for more three training on herbal medicine at the medical astrology and the wisdom of nature sure to end on over to our blog at evolutionary. And until next time take care.

Reconquest Episode 254: The End of the World as I Know It
"For as you. Also in times past not god. But now have obtained mercy through their unbeliev. They the jews so these also the jews now have not believed for your mercy that they also may obtain mercy now this texas standardly interpreted to me that the jews will convert This'll be a part part of the ecological events and If if people say that they disagree with that well they're just wrong. I'm sorry This is the common opinion of catholic theologians and of the church Saint joe the father wrote about this in augusta about saint jerome wrote about it in fact last show. I talked about the those twin. Miracles of the The raising of the daughter gyrus and the the raising of a rather the the healing of the henrietta. The woman with the issue of blood for twelve years will saint. Jerome is not alone among the fathers to say that the him or isa is the gentile. She represents gentiles and the daughter of gyrus represents The the jews and it's interesting because if you interpret it s to logically which saint jerome does and others others do as well Regardless Ravanas mauro's who's actually a saint saint rabbani's maros benedict in medieval author He gives some detail on this talks. About how the Our lord comes to cheese. He's coming to bring the jews back to life in his mission. He's coming to resuscitate them because they they've they failed in their belief and when he comes to resuscitate them on his way to bring the jews back to life he heals. The gentiles meaning brings them into the church. And what did the henry say have. She had an issue of blood. She was not fertile. Right she was she was impacted in her regenerate. Inner generative organs. Let's just put it that way. Now she believes in christ. She's healed right. She's healed in her body and she can be fruitful now right she goes from being ritually impure now to being healed and whole and therefore as a woman fruitful that us the gentile nations so they accept the church right now the the Twelve year old girl. The daughter of gyrus by the way twelve years old was considered marriageable right among the jews. Among the people in those times and this is what the the commentators on scripture say just at the time where she should have been bearing fruit she dies and she becomes fruitless so on his way to to to resurrect the jews and to give them faith in him and have them be fruitful in him. He heals the gentiles as well so it does. It doesn't escott illogical interpretation that i not making this up again ruben. A small teaches this saint. Thomas quotes him in the katina. Aria saint jerome in the matins reading for the twenty third sunday after pentecost References this as well continuing Do alright so from this text. It may be with reasonable. Certainty concluded a that. The majority of the nation's this is talking about romans eleven That the majority of the nation's or least the majority of the people of the nation's plentitude ogen z will embrace christianity before the end of the world. Be that after the general conversion of the gentiles jus to will accept the gospel though. These propositions by no means embody articles of faith. It requires more than such anti semitic scolding as indulged by luther to disprove them. So luther rejected the idea that the jews would convert. So we're not the antisemites. The apostle expressly speaks a mystery describes the final conversion of the jews not only to the physical or mental characteristics of the semitic race but to a special dispensation of god's mercy luther overlooked both these factors when he wrote quote a jew or a jewish heart is as hard wood stone or iron as hard in fact is the devil himself and hence cannot be moved by any means they are young imps condemned to hell those who conclude from the eleventh chapter. Saint paul's epistles to the romans that the jews will be converted towards the end of the world are foolish and their opinion is groundless and quote. So there's a book called luther hitler spiritual ancestor The roots of jewish antisemitism of yeah they do precede luther but he definitely gave a powerful powerful strain of antisemitism in in in german protestantism on the other hand however there is no reason to assume that the jews will be converted or that hebrew race will embrace the true faith in a body. It's going to be a mass conversion but it it's not necessarily every one of them in fact one of the prophecies that the the anti christ himself will be of the tribe of dan. A ju Like gentiles jews will probably flock to the church in great numbers when the multitude of the nations will come in saint jerome. Then this fig tree to will bear fruits and all israel will be saved. That's saint jerome. Borrowing metaphor the fishery from our lord in the gospel. And all this will be saved comes from saint paul to the to the romans chapter eleven. The parable of the sheep fold john. Ten sixteen is sometimes applied to the end of the world. Though we believe ineptly okay. Let let me skip that okay Third sign the return of elias. The belief that eliason connect will return to herald the second coming of the lord and to convert. The jews was held by many fathers a so far as it regards elias. This belief is based upon the prophecy of malik's quote. Behold i send you elias. The prophet the coming of the great and dreadful day of the lord and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to their children and the heart of the children to their fathers lest i should come and strike the earth with them and quote allies. The prophet cannot be identified with john the baptist there's some thought because the septum agent expressly calls him the fez bite. That's specific reference to allies of the old testament. Moreover himself clearly distinguishes between the two and describes to elias precisely the role that was attributed to him by his contemporaries matthew seventeen eleven and following quote but he answering said to them allies indeed shell calm and restore all things. But i say to you though. Elias is already com- then the disciples understood that he had spoken to them of john. The baptist so he's giving in analogous Elias identity to john the baptist but he also says elias shallan come and restore all things. So one of the traditions is that elias will preach to the jews. Saint augustine explains this taxes follows quote as there are two advent of the judge. So there are two precursors. He sent before him. The first p sir and called him elias. Because elias was to take the same part in the second coming that john the baptist had in the first and quote from what we have said it further appears that the phrase dis dominate the day of the lord by the way that was an outstanding old husband reference. To the times of the messiahs not mean the first coming of christ as the messiah but his second coming as the universal judge. The of his incarnation was a day of mercy and blessing. The day of the last judgement will be quote day of terror and quote concerning enoch. The argument is less convincing. Okay so there you. I won't go into that Because i'm trying to sort of pull vault over this material. But the there the two witnesses of the apocalypse and one of the standard interpretations of the two witnesses of the apocalypse is that they are in and elias. And all kinds of interesting things are going to happen. They're going to come shortly before the anti christ and in fact anti christ will kill them. According to the book of the apocalypse he will kill after the three and a half year reign of anti christ our or at the beginning during his he they will come. They will preach many will be converted but there will be this fight this battle between anti christ and the two witnesses and he will slay them their bodies will be in the street for three days but then they will resurrect and and ascended to heaven or be assumed rather into heaven and People will get scared. The bad guys will get scared when they see that okay. That's my paraphrasing of the apocalypse there so the fourth sign the great apostasy and anti christ the great apostasy that is a tremendous defection among the faithful is described partly as the cause and partly as an effect of the appearance of anti christ. Both events may be reckoned that are to precede the last judgment because it is certain that either before or after the conversion of the nations and the jewish race there will be a great revolt led by anti christ which reduced the number of the faithful cake. This is why. I'm not looking for the anti christ now. And this is why. I'm not saying that. What we're seeing now as defections and as defeats and as a low ebb in the history of the church. This is not the prelude to anti christ. The reason i'm saying that is because it is prophesied that there will be this spread of the gospel all throughout the earth. There will be a mass conversion of the gentiles. they'll be conversion of the jews and then after a period of peace and prosperity there will be the coming of the anti christ. So that's one reason. I'm i'm not. I'm not on the lookout for the anti christ. Because i honestly don't think he's going to be coming anytime soon. Now our own personal Judgments happens when we die so in a sense. These questions are moot for us individually by dive a big fat heart attack right now. It doesn't matter as far as you're concerned when When these events are going to happen your general judgment happens now if you go to hell boom you damned and it was all an academic question for you if you go to heaven while good then you get to be up there cheering for those who are on earth during the times of these battles with anti christ and yes. The book of the apocalypse talks about the saints in heaven cheering and Praying making intercession for those who suffering on earth.

S. dot me slash go. Hi everyone it's amy. Gallo Co host of women at work like many people I struggled with anxiety. Righty especially at work. I worry I'm not getting enough done. I over think feedback. I have to give and I'll admit that sometimes I lose sleep when I have too much on my plate. That's why I was thrilled when each year decided to add a new podcast to its. HP are presents network. It's called the anxious achiever. The host more errands errands. Mealy is on a mission to reframe the way we think about and deal with mental health at work. She talks with leaders who have struggled with anxiety and succeeded despite or because of it her conversations are candid and at times quite emotional moral also talks with experts medical and otherwise who offer lots of practical advice on navigating anxiety at work in one episode. She speaks with Alice. Boys a former clinical psychologist. Who you may remember from season? Two who of this show as talked with us about the dangers of perfectionism especially for women and share tips from her book the anxiety toolkit in this preview from an upcoming. I'm an episode of the anxious achiever. More asks Alice for advice about something that makes her truly anxious at work. Getting feedback HP presents so let's talk about feedback in the context of the workplace right because has obviously being able to handle feedback is a huge piece of career growth. And yet I think that many of us anxious types you know we just we just just avoid feedback or potentially difficult conversations for many reasons. Shame being found out having feelings were uncomfortable with etc.. I mean I know for me. I miss out on probably growing and learning even having more real relationships by avoiding feedback but I I still avoid it. Is there sort of a baby. Step way that we can get more comfortable with feedback. Yes are one of the big things was to Asto identify. What helps you take on board feedback? What helps you be more willing to accept it and that a lot of that can be who you getting from so making thinking that you have somebody who generally trusts and your your talent who generally trust in your capacity and your psychological flexibility that you you can? You can get a point of feedback and a debt to that. When you've got those people that you that you trust it can be a lot easier? Also it just kind of realizing the format that you like to get feedback and can be really helpful as well so it's a lot easier not to be defensive sometimes if you getting fade back in a form. That's that's Britain rather than being given on the spot but also is just managing that psychology about we junk guy from. I've got this one thing I'm not doing well to I'm never going to succeed. I'm doomed to fail on terrible. Horrible the catastrophe sizing but sometimes feedback happens. And it's not thought out sometimes your in a meeting in and you say something stupid or offensive in front of all your colleagues and you might get some some in the moment or really post-haste feedback. I was in a meeting and with client and they were presenting a new line of of Videos that they had created and had spent a lot of time and one person on the team had really spearheaded them and I said in the meeting while I just don't think Caesar as creative or as good as other videos and the minute I said it it was like you could hear a pin drop. It was like my my internal monologue had spoken and it was a major Faux Pas and I definitely feedback so then I just really lost the rest of the day I mean I. Ah I felt so ashamed I was so angry at myself. I do that a lot and then I think should I send a follow up email. Do I need to apologize apologized to that person. You know. It's it's all a little squishy. Because your own negative self-talk get so involved. Even if you may have legitimately screwed up yeah was it. Was it wrong like I mean. WAS IT A. Was it a useful. It was an on point of feedback. It wasn't useful. It wasn't useful at all. I was cranky. Okay I was cranky and my ego was offended because they didn't take my advice. Okay so then I think it is just figuring out they whenever maybe you have anything that happens. And that's return that triggers rumination. I think you've got to ask yourself if there is a listen to be learned here here. Like what is the practical. Take away from from this and sometimes the as an SAR GONNA give out just quickly give a couple of scenario so where where it's different way. go boo gold We've actually been burgled twice. But and the fifth time it happened I Went through this at a Woulda Shoulda coulda things of things that I should have done to make our house lease of a target for our burglary and in that scenario the with things that That should have that should have been done. Another scenario was we are accidentally got a parking ticket and I didn't notice a sign that Seat that you couldn't potty doc on the road during street cleaning out what happened to me yesterday I had towed. Yeah sorry yeah this this this this happened on a on a vacation and that scenario. That was the only time in the last five years that I've gotten a parking ticket. There was no logical. Listen to be learned from that. I didn't I don't need to be paying more attention to signs because I'm already paying pretty good attention to signs so I think sometimes it's just distinguishing that and recognizing that there there isn't a wise But just coming up with like a really simple plan so in the burglary example. I might have thought of Tina fifteen different things that I could have done to make a house appealing to burglars right. But if I think that big than I'm just GonNa get overwhelmed and not delays the those things so kind of really streamlining it down. So what are the the real top priorities here and maybe it's just one like what is the number one thing I need to change those actually doable to change in the in that situation. I mean if you would think about that for your scenario because it does kind of sound like you're saying saying it's it falls into the category of things. There is a lesson to be learned here. What's the number one doable thing that would help you? Stop making that mistake again. Well it's funny. It was actually the culmination of big lesson for me. which is that? I have to choose when I talk. It's almost like avoiding impulse. This is a really crazy analogy angie but I think listeners might appreciate it so you know when you buy something on impulse and you regret it versus when you've researched something you've saved DOPP and you're like this is gold. I have to buy this. This is a great purchase. I've tried to approach my my presence in meetings because my job requires a lot of meetings like that. No impulse purchases only things that I know I really want so it would be. Don't blurt out things that you're thinking especially if you're in a certain kind of mood save up for when you feel that you have something that's really additive to the conversation conversation and actually listen get out of your own head about how anxious you feel because maybe you feel like you are. Someone doesn't like thank you or you're going to get fired or there's some dynamic in the room that's making you feel anxious. Stop actually listen to the conversation. An only talk when you have something important to say now. I am not there yet but I'm working on it. Yeah and I think that even translating that that the principle into behavioral terms as much as you as you can Sorry it might be something like that. You're that you're that you practice giving sandwich feedback sandwich feedback like something good something bad something good or vice versa. Yes the Post Sandwich said that if he is his well done leaned podcast. Yeah so If that's how you you standardly speak Then that's going to help nope prevent the blooming. Because you're going to need to think about the ingredients of that sandwich.

Special Mayo Clinic Q&A episode: How contact tracing can fight the spread of COVID-19
"Welcome to Mayo Clinic. We're recording this episode. On April the fifteenth. Two Thousand Twenty. And I'm Dr Halina Gazelle. The Coles battle continues in the United States and we are back today with infectious disease expert and virologist Dr Greg Poland from the Mayo Clinic. Who'S BEEN VISITING WITH? Us regularly about the epidemic. Hide after good to be back. What's your have to share with us for updates today little you know a few one just to update the numbers. As of this morning we have passed unfortunate. Mark of at least two million documented cases in the US with about one hundred twenty eight thousand deaths thirty percent of those cases are in the US. Were we have about six hundred? Fourteen thousand cases in about twenty six thousand deaths in those cases surprisingly in some respects nine thousand. Three hundred of those cases are healthcare providers serious tissue not only for the public. But it's a serious issue for you. In IAS HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS. Those numbers really staggering. Why does the United States seem right now to be over represented? I think part of it is. We've actually done more testing than other countries. So we're aware of more numbers. I think we also have a concentrations of people in our major cities where we didn't have the social distancing happening. Perhaps as fast as it might up and so you have community transmission in spread of the virus. You know that we don't have those sorts of large numbers of cases if you will in the interior of the US. It's kind of been along. The southern rim a West Coast in the east coast. Now that can change of course but I think we really learned the lesson of social distancing respiratory etiquette in Hanukkah. I have read that there's a new saliva test available for covert nineteen. Which would certainly be preferable people that nasal swab that. I see them using the newest. When they're the test centers. What can you tell us about that you know? We don't tempt details in terms of pure reviewed publication. But very simply what it is. It's another molecular diagnostic. Tests it spitting into it too and then using that rather than blood to perform RTP. Now there's some issues with that on. The plus side is the immense benefit at the at the population level to not have to be face to face with a healthcare worker which puts people at risk and to mail these out and perform this kind of testing that would be very useful the flip side of the coin though is we don't know the operating characteristics of the tests you when somebody's spits into a tube. It's really three different fluids. It's salivary gland fluid it's what's called Crevasse Fluid seeps out from the gums and then it's you know or that kind of sputum actually so the the operating characteristics of the test are likely to be such that it won't be as sensitive as the more uncomfortable nasal for NGOs swab tests. But we don't know that yet even as an anesthesiologist dealing with a lot of innovations and secretions. I've never given them a quite names or thought about them that clearly before. So it's like me. You talked about the data and the numbers of individuals dying which is really tragic. We have noted that more men seemed to be dying of cove nineteen than women. What might be the reason for this. It is a really important scientific question. This has been noticed. Everywhere have been large outbreaks. Interestingly enough some data published by CDC shows that there's worse severity of the disease in young male children versus female. And this is a hint that it isn't just hormonal. As people have suggested we see that same trend in prepubertal gender differences and we see the same trend in post-menopausal trends so This is an interesting observation. Our Laboratory does studies were we use live attenuated vaccines as of proxy if you will for viral infection and in all those studies women have superior immune responses to men the same. I've heard about children that children don't seem to be affected With infections as adults. I'm does that mean they're not infected and they can't pass the virus or maybe we don't know no they probably are infected. In fact I think one of the things that we're GONNA find out. Is that the base of the Pyramid of WHO's been infected is deeper and broader than we thought when we get to the point where we can do widespread serology to see who's been in fact it. My guess is that we'll have a high rate of children at least in the bigger cities for sure that have been infected. They tend to be eysenck. Dramatic or mildly symptomatic. That doesn't mean they can't develop severe disease and even die but that's a much rarer occurrence with children than it is for older adults. No-one particularly knows why there are theories including one called cytokine storm where our own immune system overreacts as older adults in actually causes problems rather than helping the immune system when patients are known to be infected. There's a lot of discussion about contact. Tracing in fact I think Mayo Clinic has even been working on some Applications to be able to do this without violating perhaps a patient confidentiality etc. Esam unique uses of that. What is it meant by contact? Tracing what is a utility group question that something is standardly done with infectious diseases? So for many infections that would occur. We would do contact. Trace in bat is go to somebody and we wouldn't reveal who but a person has said that they've been in contact with you. They are now demonstrating for example to rookie lsus and we trace out who might have possibly become exposed and therefore infected so that we can offer treatment so the whole idea and this is really important to beginning of an outbreak in order to contain. The outbreak is to understand who's infected and then in broader and broader rains trace who might have been exposed and therefore who might have been infected if you can do that quickly and effectively and efficiently you can and modeling and real life data shows. You can dramatically decrease the impact of the of the Democrat Panda. But we know that not everyone who is affected by Cova. One thousand nine needs to be hospitalized. In many of us don't live in isolation from our family members how can one safely care for a covert patients in the home Without putting other family members at risk. That's very very good question. It's a very important one for many of our patients were. They may have a family member like that. What I would recommend is that if you have somebody at home that has symptomatic Cova. You WanNa treat the room that they stay in in a sense like a hospital room. What does that mean limited incursions or excursions in or out of that room? That person is quarantined in that room. Ideally with a window open and you have to treat that room as infected so A paper released just a Friday. Showed that in hospital rooms. As an example the healthcare workers coming out of that room have the virus on the soles of their shoes. So that means you don't walk in and out of that room was shoes and take it into the rest of the House. That person is masked before they would come out. You don't meals together. The hard surfaces that that person is exposed to get wiped down with appropriate disinfected solutions and a lot of share taken. So that you don't ask this on now you'd think that the risk of passing it on in the context of a family living together would be one hundred percent. But that's actually not what the data shows and I actually pretty surprised by this. It might be that some of it is that the rest of the family members or a symptomatic since we don't do as wide attesting as we would like to but the numbers in fact show rates as low as ten percent as high as about sixty plus percent so it is not inevitable and I want to make that point because some people think well there's so many in my house than hasn't we're all GonNa get it. That's not necessarily true in it doesn't have to be true. We are obviously still waiting for vaccine for Kovic nineteen which may be in the offing Quite some time but the World Health Organization has warned during this pandemic children may be missing out on other immunizations that they would typically be receiving during this time. I'm wondering how does that affect to them? And what might be the long term effects for the children and for society if that occurs. No this is a really important question. In fact let me speak first globally both the polio eradication initiative and the global measles. Rubella initiation and efforts are all compromise in some thirty seven countries I think it is. They have suspended those programs because Healthcare workers are focused on dealing with Kobe. Nineteen so this is how I put it. We get a lot of patient questions about this. There are some vaccines. Let's take for example your second dose of shingle wrecks. That we would say well. We'd like to get that second dose within six months of the IOT. So if you're not yet at that time point let's delay that a little bit if it's appropriate in that particular patients contacts and this summer when we hope this will further die down. That might be the time to do it where you can really imagine this being a concern now remember that. Kobe hit the. Us In February was our first known case. Very likely this is speculation. We're GONNA see a second wave of this and of course the symptoms of influenza and Kobe nineteen overlaps almost exactly in their initial presentation so one of the messages. I think we want to get out this year. Is that as fall approaches. We want people to get their flu vaccine as early as practical. Sometimes it's available in August early September. That's ideal get it then for kids in terms of their routine childhood vaccines. I'm I'm a fan of a understanding. Exactly the public health implications of those vaccines. So when I'm telling parents is call your healthcare provider and figure out in. This is the word that I use how we orient grasp this. You don't WanNa take healthy kids a waiting room where there are sick people and have them wait for thirty or sixty minutes to get a well child check or a vaccine in many medical offices that I'm hearing about are doing just that. They are Horia graphing. We will text you when we want you to come into the office. You can wait in the parking lot or at home if you're nearby and they're actually scheduling fifteen minute appointments you come in you get immunized. You're out so I I think. Talk with your healthcare provider because these vaccines are important if that's not done. Is it possible to miss the window? Altogether for a child to evac saints no and that's something other than shingles where there's a little bit of an issue there with windows. There really is no vaccine licensed in the US where if you're outside the ideal window that we would start over we would just take off from where we left and administer vaccines. That's not the ideal but it's very doable. Now is a maintenance. I sometimes during this went so much. Focus is going to illicit sell. You often say thank goodness even though we sometimes complain about it thank goodness for the electronic medical record. I can't remember my own medical history. I would have no idea when I last had immunization or by got my flu shot in for that matters my list and the shot was. I don't know seven years ago eight years ago. Well thank you so much Dr Paul. And do you have any last words of wisdom or information you'd like to share with our listeners. Think something really important to say and I say this out of encouragement people are stretched to the limit right. It is difficult to give up. Our normal routine is particularly difficult. If you're caring for elderly people or very young infants or have somebody sick in your home. It has been very hard for healthcare providers. And I just WANNA say. The evidence is accumulating that we are starting to flatten in. Bend down this Kerr. It's a process we've talked about the leg period. It's for fifteen to twenty eight days after you don't see any cases to know there won't be any more cases so we've got a ways to go with. This people are working on road maps. For how we slowly in a phased in way reopen. But it's really important for all of us to be encouraged into use that encouragement to hold the course and not prematurely fatigue than say. Oh forget it. I'm just GONNA go out. That would be detrimental and then we start all over again. A good reminder and it really is good to hear some encouragement. Feel so uncertain. I think it's hard when people just don't know how long and what this will look like exactly. Well thank you so much natural. Thank you for joining us on. Mayo Clinic QNA. Today we've been visiting with great Poland of IRA largest and infectious disease expert at the Mayo Clinic. Who is kindly? Shares shared his time with multiple times.

Becoming a Whole Soul [SSL144]
"Wall I'm your host. Lee said he lay. And you're you're listening to the spark my Muse podcast. This is soul school lesson. One hundred and forty four before I get into my lesson today. I wanted to remind you that Christmas is coming soon and one of the things that you can give yourself for Christmas present or you can tell your friends and family that you would like AAC is a reset is some soul. Care some sustenance for your spirit. I'm journeying with other people this June to New Mexico and we're going to be doing some soul care and some spiritual companion ing and a visit to the Timoteo ancient secret site where people pilgrimage too often. If they're from New Mexico more on that later Christel gone into what I'm going to do today today. I'm going to read from a book called living in Christ's presence final words on heaven and the Kingdom of God. Some of this book was pulled together by Gary Moon and it has to do with a dialogue some interviews with John or Burg and Dallas Willard. Shortly before he died died of cancer in two thousand thirteen. I'll tell you a little bit about who John Wartburg is and who else Willard was case. You don't know who they are. Joint Wartburg is the senior pastor at Menlo Church in California is written a number of books. And he's on the board of Trustees as for for the Dallas Willard Center for spiritual formation and the board of trustees at fuller seminary he has a masters of divinity vanity and graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in psychology and Dallas Willard one of my favorite writers on topics topics of spiritual formation. He was a professor in the school philosophy at Ucla. He began teaching at USC in nineteen sixty five and was the director of the school philosophy. Nineteen eighty two to nineteen eighty five. He taught at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and and he had visiting appointments at Ucla in the University of Colorado renovation of the heart was published in May two thousand and two and receive the the Christianity Today Book Award. In the category of spirituality he served on the boards of the CS Lewis Foundation and by all university and wrote many fascinating books. That people still enjoy today and served as a kind of spiritual director till a lot of people including many pastors some dialogue between John and Dallas really point to some things I thought were invaluable to share about the soul and who we really are as whole people so I'll go back and forth speaking as John and his Dallas starting from page one twenty nine. John what would you say if someone is discouraged. Ready to give up because they feel that change will never happen Dallas I. I would want to sit with them and listen to them and help them understand and why they are saying what they're saying may experiences that you don't have to go very far with that until people begin to see a light you have to listen to people. We don't do enough listening. We think too highly of talking at people we need to listen more as we listen we begin to perceive the roots of their behavior and find out why they are so discouraged. Then there's an occasion Asian to teach in that context to teach not just by laying the truth out for them but by saying now. Why don't you try this? The vision was spiritual direction which is not an educated one. Just one that comes out of my experience is that the spiritual director primarily helps people find ways of responding that will bring them in touch with the saving grace of God where they are. You suggest things for them to do and then you come back and talk with them about that. That's how learning actually goes. It has been my privilege to watch watch. This in. The lives of many people often ministers. They're put in touch with reality that delivers them it pulls them and gives them hope. The hopelessness comes out of trying. What is hopeless over and over again as a young Baptist minister I became conscious that the best people in my congregation were the ones who felt the most guilty and when come and rededicate indicate themselves if I put a little pressure on them you know as a baptist? You can't get saved again but you can rededicate yourself an endless number of times. They felt better if they did that. But that didn't solve their problem. Sorry to inject so much of myself into it. This is one of the things that really turned around. And my idea of how you minister to people. I realized I was not saying anything that was helping these people that meant i. It wasn't actually helping them get into the things that were defeating them. That's the key and all of these matters. You listen to people you try try to discern of course this is spiritual work not just being clever it involves intelligence and application. You listen to them you and you help them see why they're failing John. Sometimes people say spiritual discipline sounds like ca purely human activity. You find out that somebody bustles with gossip and so if they practice silence that might help them not not to have to gossip so much but it's not clear or they'll ask. Where's the spirit in that? Isn't that just human activity Dallas. Well it certainly is a human activity. Everything that goes into religious life is a human activity. Comedy going to church. Is Human activity. All human activities are designed to meet the grace of God for example practice of silence. Events can help you realize that you don't stop breathing when you stop talking John. When you say all human activities are designed to meet the grace of God do you mean all spiritual disciplines or just human activity generally Dallas all human human activity generally? But when you come to spiritual disciplines you have a special case with special needs that are being addressed. But they're all designed twin gauge. The grace of God we are built for that. That's what our creation was about. That's what our work life is and our family. Life is activity activity that meets the grace of God. John say a little more about the soul. There is so much mystery around that one. And you've said that sometimes it really quiet was soul will come out. How do you know when the soul has come out? What if the Slocum's out and I miss it in Dallas? I think that's a good question because you're probably certainly going to miss it. If you approach it in an attitude of anxiety that's why the spiritual disciplines standardly give us indirection that is we. Don't try to find the soul but we practice something that allows the soul to make itself known the soul is experienced as a kind of inner force. I like to compare it to an inner river that pulls everything in our world together. The Knicks are experienced one life when the soul isn't functional. Our experiences are shattered conflicting. Set against one another. We don't have integrity. How do you know when your mind is showing up? Well experience. Now I'm thinking now I'm feeling now. Join choosing all of these dimensions of the Self are learned by experience for the soul. We need people who can speak to two us with some degree of experience and intelligence about it. We learned to wait on the soul and on God to come with the sole one of the things that that happens in solitude and silence. is you discover you have a soul for many people. That's a big deal. They don't know they've got one. Their life isn't isn't based on a sense of unity. Jesus asked a provocative question which an English is translated. What can demand give in exchange for his soul? That's bound in mark eight thirty seven. What does it mean for your soul to be lost? It means that your life doesn't have a center that organizes your activities. You can't have that center until it returns to God God and God restores the soul people can help some have a ministry that is basically a soul ministry a lot of what goes goes under the name of inner healing and healing prayer soul work it nearly always involves way for the Lord to make a context in which we can begin to be honest with what's in our soul that's not a satisfactory answer but that's about the best. Yeah I can do John. That's wonderful how did you become aware of the fact that you have a soul. How did it happen for you? Dallas Alice. Well basically do the realization that I was not a whole person. There was not an organizing principle. That was join everything together. The other and making me a whole person. Then I began to experience something of God's work in that direction in my life through some confession and some ministry by people who knew what they were doing with this. I began to discover who was a dimension to myself that I had not suspected Jane was part of this after we were first married. We had some experiences with ministers worked with people who are in desperate need of soul restoration. So it's a path of experience you become aware of it. You become aware of yourself as being part of a larger world. Confession actually is very important to discovering your soul. Well it's one of the disciplines that really can be revolutionary because it goes so deep into the unity of the person essentially when you can fast you give up splitting the self so when you send you own up to what you are John. When you sin you are always splitting yourself? DALLAS SIN always splits the cell to some degree. Yes you know that you have harmed and yourself and others but you probably are not going to come to terms with that because you're carrying on a charade of righteousness even if you don't believe it. So Confession Shen is very deep in the process of discovering the soul. John is that part of why when churches experienced the spirit heavily heavily when there's revival confession is one of the first signs of IT Dallas. It's nearly inconceivable to me that you can have genuine revival without confession because the breaking of the hindrance and the saving of face the goes into the charade of ordinary gary living is what has to be left to fall on the floor. I hope you enjoyed that. snippet that little excerpt perp and I recommend this wonderful book that also has dvd companions to it and Discussion Guide in the back. It's great for small. Groups is called living in Christ's presence final words on heaven and the Kingdom of God. I will put a link to this book in the show notes and I urge you to go the patriots dot com forward slash spark my news and check out the show notes and also I want to tell you that mine is a Ministry of soul work. That's what's going to happen at sacred spaces in New Mexico in June June fifth through seventh two thousand and twenty. I hope that you might consider going into that. And join with me and a few other people who are going to go there to the high desert and have plenty of time for fluctuation relaxation and and silence and solitude where we can confess we can become whole and we can do our soul work. It's very important for us to become whole as we unite with reality and allow God to do. God's work in us through US and together so I hope that you might consider are the words of Dallas Willard as you consider coming with us to New Mexico or perhaps considering how to become a whole person and work on your soul in your life. What would you give in exchange for your soul? Thank you so much for joining me this week as I reflect on Thanksgiving this year. I'm very thankful for the people in my life. Who are close to me? Who have revealed where I am broken and in need confessing? I'm very thankful to my listeners. Who Listen Week after week and the people who financially support this show or pray for me and pray for my writing writing as I write my book reporters press and all the work? I'm trying to do with Seoul school. It's my hope. One day that I can have a place where people could come on retreat and I can care for their souls walk with them spiritually companion with them and I hope that that vision dream green can become a dream that some of US dream together is actually God's dream. I'll leave you with some homework today. Priscilla school that you consider what might need to be confessed in your life so that you might be made whole and I'll see you again next week. Douglas You

OS Ken and big thanks to express BP N for sponsoring this week show. Apple isn't at C E S. But it is it used to be that stories about Apple's absence from the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas cupboard. Either. Apple's ability the suck the air out of the room from the bay area or some random something designed by someone meant to beat apple this year far from trying to beat apple a number of companies are joining them yesterday. We heard of Samsung's announcement of airplay to support and the night tunes. Video ABC coming soon for late model. Samsung smart TV's up race Ayla lead. They lose taking a trip down the TB trail with apple is busy. Oh, I download blog says the maker of smart idiot boxes announced Monday. That's a leg. Models of its smart TV sets will soon pick up support for Apple's home kit platform for the connected, home and the airplane. To media streaming protocol. According to the report airplay to support will permit owners of busy. Oh, smart TV sets to send music photos or videos from their iphone, ipad or MAC to their television. No apple TV required whatsoever. Said the Irvine California headquartered company airplay to also brings multi room audio than with home kit support every compatible TV said is automatically discovered. An added as a tile in Apple's home app. Allowing limited Siri control for the TV set that is all similar to the functionality announced by Samsung on Sunday, though. There is a major difference. Samsung gets that exclusive items video app out of the gate spars. I know no length on that exclusivity has been announced electronics maker L G also made an airplay home cat announcement from CAS on Monday live tweeting its own event. L G posted them. Message as one of Apple's first TV partners. L G is adding apple airplay airplay audio and home kit support to our twenty nineteen TV's while airplanes older age for TV's. There's a ton of other home kit. Stop making the scene as well. Then fact tech crunch says apple recently invited reporters to meet a handful of companies announcing new products at this year's CAS. The thing they all have in common home, get item. Shown off include new we mow light switches from Belkin that started thirty nine ninety nine set the launch no later than this summer. A smart light strip with a smart power strip from eve a company focused on home kit, integrated accessories, a new smart outlet from connect sense meant to measure power consumption of each outlet built to be installed in the wall rather than over an existing outlets. The in wall smart outlet is scheduled to hit in the first half of this year. Quick satisfied said to have a slicker looking premise touchscreen. Smart lock Myton plans to launch its via smart lock in may according to tech crunch the site. Also highlights the Nanno leaf canvas a modular smart lighting system that can create fun beautiful patterns and even respond to music the starter kit starts at two hundred fifty bucks. And finally, the P says Natanz MO was announcing a smart video doorbell. Allowing customers to see on their phone whose ringing the bell. It's also announcing a smart indoor air quality monitor that measures, air quality, humidity level, temperature and noise. Right. Let's go to the bathroom. The Lou the old W C. Apple insider, says Mohan a maker of smart shower controls has announced a seri- and home kit update for the U by Mohan due out early this year. Should you? Hold your breath. If you have to I fear, you're using the shower wrong either way, you might not want to this time. The peace says Mohan showed up Siri connective for the U at C ES twenty eighteen according to mo- inside the U lets you do things like starting pause. The shower said the exact length of your shower said the exact temperature of your shower and receive notifications from your shower. I won't say that that's dumb. I mean, it's not like we're talking about Syria. Nibbled smart toilets, except now we are a separate piece from apple insiders has Kohler maker of dumb toilets for as long as I can remember has started making an intelligent toilet. Believe that those words are in quotes, thanks to home kit and Syria support for the new me, two dot zero users can ask Siri to hate the toilet seat and control. It's multicolor lighting. According to colour. The peace says the new me two dot zero. Also features day and dryer functions and Bilton speakers with Amazon's Alexa, voice ist, and I'll give an Alexis propensity for data leaks. This seems like a match made in Brazil, the movie not the country price for the new me two zero eight thousand dollars according to apple insider, but that I mentioned every time you poop, Amazon will know. These stories may actually get up to do this week. Not because I expect more that are scuttle article in nature the way creative strategies Ben baharan put it on Twitter on Monday. It's looking like the changes apple made to make it easier for third parties to integrate home kit and work. They did with airplay to is paying off story of C E S, maybe Apple's growth in home kit Serey airplay to support. Plans for TV aren't the only things apple and Samsung having common they've also both been hit by economic trouble in China. Apple insider says Sammy as expected to restate guidance for last quarter today similar to the warning issued last week by apple citing a piece from the South China Morning post. Apple insider says the announcement from Samsung said to be arriving today is tipped to advise an operating profit of thirteen point three trillion one or eleven point eight five billion dollars for the quarter revenue expected to drop by five percent year on year in part due to memory card shipment. Reductions amid a global smartphone market slowdown for the most part the piece continues. It is suggested the issue stemmed from China. A market that fell eight percent in terms of sales in the last three months, according to analysts from counterpoint research, the peace. Points out that weakness in China would likely hit Samsung harder than apple according to apple insiders. Samsung said occupy less than one percent of the Chinese smartphone market compared to Apple's nine percent. But it's memory and processors are used extensively by smartphone. Vendors accounting for over three quarters of its earnings and around thirty eight percent of sales. So yeah, things are tough all over. And it sounds like things may be really tough all over Samsung. We'll find out more if they post their -ticipant at warning today. More news in a moment. But first word from molecule the air purifier. That actually destroys air pollutants. I was reading the other day about the doctor who developed technology in molecule, Dr Yogi Swamy, he's a professor and the director of the clean energy research center at the university of south Florida. He developed PICO the technology behind molecule that does the destroying eliminating pollutants like bacteria, viruses, mold allergens, Nair born chemicals, rather than just collecting them in a filter.

Tech crunch says acuity researchers found at least fourteen I o s apps linked to known malware. When I spotted the peace says, the fourteen apps were communicating on the sly with the server associated with gold duck. That's a historically Android focused malware that infects popular classic game apps. According to the report now, it may have made its way and the walled garden apps affected on the IOS side include commando medal classic contra super pen Tron adventure super hard classic tank. Versus super bomber super adventures of merit. Tron? Roy adventure troll game trap. Dungeons super adventure bounced classic legend blog game classic bomber super legend brain it on. Stick men. Physics bomber game. Classic. Summer, man. Classic brick retro block, the climber brick and finally chicken shoot galaxy invaders. Those all sound awful, even before, you know, about the malware as for how the malware does it standardly deed. We turn to gold ducts robot infecting past according to crunch. The malware has been known about for over a year after it was first discovered by app thority, infecting classic and retro games on Google play by embedding back door code that allowed militias payloads to be silently pushed to the device at the time. More than ten million users were affected by the malware. Allowing hackers to run militias commands at the highest privileges like sending premium SMS messages from victims phone to make money. Now. The peace says, the researchers say I phone apps linked to the malware could also present a risk. It is already acting shady based on tests run by tech crunch. The app tells the militias gold luck server the app version device type and the IP. Address of the device and cutting. How many ads were displayed on the phone right now abs- just blast players with ads likely as a way to make a quick buck and the sites estimate. Still researchers worried that the communication between the app and the known to be militias server could open up the app and the device. The militias commands down the line that crunch was unable to reach the developers of the absent question for its part. Apple offered no comment for the report. And finally today the cost for a lot of apples digital goods in Canada have gone up, but it's all for a good cause namely the wellbeing of Canada. Apple insider says apple on Monday announced a change and billing policy that will require Canadian users to pay taxes on TV movies music and audio book purchases as well as apple music. Subscriptions bringing the tech giant in line with recently adopted tax laws. People were surprised by the added tax and justifiably annoyed with apple for not publicly announcing that tax change. Apple has since issued a bubbling statement. Kind of they talked to. I'm Moore's Rene Ritchie who posted the company statement on Twitter quoting that as the world's largest tax payer. We respect the important role taxes play in society due the recent changes in Canadian legislation and the growth of our business. Sales tax will now be charged on purchases of TV, movies music and audio books. If you're wondering why the changes don't apply to the app store, they do they did. And they have prior to the updated, I tunes policy. Apple insider says customers in Canada were subject only to taxes on apps store purchases the way, I'm Moore's Richie. Sees it Apple's older content. I tunes was run out of the US and newer abs- store was run out of Canada. Now, everything is being run out of Canada, which means taxes for all of it.

Bonus: 2020-21 UCL & UEL knockout stage teams
"What's up everybody. Happy sunday Promised you guys this on friday. You know life steps in the way But this is me talking about the champions league and europa league because we had the matchday six so now all the teams from the champions league that are moving on to the knockout stages have been determined as well as the team from the third place teams from the group stage of the champions league that are dropping down to the europa league as well as around thirty two four. The arab league finally been finalized. Predictions were a little bit off. So what. I'm going to bring some. Because i kinda did not as well as i thought.

That game ended up being abandoned on tuesday because apparently the fourth official made some type of racial comment to one of the players and all the players just walked off the field which is cool that. Psg in paris decided to do that. I mean that was a big big thing now. This referee is coming and saying that. He's not racist. You know this that. And the other. But i don't know if the players feel that way and i i don't know what he said exactly but i'm assuming no i did read something that said that he i don't know what language it was that he was saying but he basically dropped like n bomb. Apparently so you know. He's saying he's not racist. Dave replace the officiating crew for the game took place on wednesday but it was psg five. Istanbul bucks are here one.

How contact tracing can fight the spread of COVID-19
"Welcome to Mayo Clinic. We're recording this episode. On April the fifteenth. Two Thousand Twenty. And I'm Dr Halina Gonzaga. The Coles battle continues in the United States and we are back today with infectious disease expert and virologist Dr Greg Poland from the Mayo Clinic. Who's been visiting with us? Regularly about the epidemic. Hide after good to be back. What's your have to share with us for updates today little you know a few one just to update the numbers as of this morning. We have passed unfortunate mark of at least two million documented cases in the US with about one hundred twenty eight thousand deaths thirty percent of those cases are in the US. Were we have about six hundred? Fourteen thousand cases in about twenty six thousand deaths in those cases surprisingly in some respects nine thousand. Three hundred of those cases are healthcare providers serious tissue not only for the public. But it's a serious issue for you in IAS. Healthcare providers does numbers really staggering. Why does the United States seem right now to be over represented? I think part of it is. We've actually done more testing than other countries. So we're aware of more numbers. I think we also have a concentrations of people in our major cities where we didn't have the social distancing happening. Perhaps as fast as it might up and so you have community transmission in spread of the virus. You know that we don't have those sorts of large numbers of cases if you will in the interior of the US. It's kind of been along. The southern rim a West Coast in the east coast. Now that can change of course but I think we really learned the lesson of social distancing respiratory etiquette in Hanukkah. I have read that there's a new saliva test available for covert nineteen. Which would certainly be preferable people that nasal swab that. I see them using the newest. When they're in the test centers. What can you tell us about that you know? We don't tempt details in terms of pure reviewed publication. But very simply what it is. It's another molecular diagnostic tests. It's fitting into it too and then using that rather than blood to perform. Rtp now there's some issues with that on. The plus side is the immense benefit at the at the population level to not have to be face to face with a healthcare worker which puts people at risk and to mail these out and perform this kind of testing that would be very useful the flip side of the coin though is we don't know the operating characteristics of the tests you when somebody's spits into a Tube. It's really three different fluids. It's salivary gland fluid. It's what's called Crevasse Fluid seeps out from the gums and then it's you know or that kind of sputum. Actually so the the operating characteristics of the test are likely to be such that it won't be as sensitive as the more uncomfortable nasal for NGOs swab tests. But we don't know that yet even as an anesthesiologist dealing with a lot of innovations and secretions I've never given them Quite names or thought about them that clearly before. So it's like me. You talked about the data and the numbers of individuals dying which is really tragic. We have noted that more men seemed to be dying of Cova nineteen than women. What might be the reason for this. It is a really important scientific question. This has been noticed. Everywhere have been large outbreaks. Interestingly enough some data published by CDC shows that there's worse severity of the disease in young male children versus female. And this is a hint that it isn't just hormonal. As people have suggested we see that same trend in prepubertal gender differences and we see the same trend in post-menopausal trends so This is an interesting observation. Our Laboratory does studies were we use live attenuated vaccines as of proxy if you will for viral infection and in all those studies women have superior immune responses to men the same. I've heard about children that children don't seem to be affected With infections as adults. I'm does that mean they're not infected and they can't pass the virus or maybe we don't know no they probably are infected. In fact I think one of the things that we're GONNA find out. Is that the base of the Pyramid of WHO's been infected is deeper and broader than we thought when we get to the point where we can do widespread serology to see who's been in fact it. My guess is that we'll have a high rate of children at least in the bigger cities for sure that that have been infected. They tend to be eysenck. Semantic or mildly symptomatic. That doesn't mean they can't developed severe disease and even die but that's a much rarer occurrence with children than it is for older adults. No-one particularly knows why there are theories including one called cytokine storm where our own immune system overreacts as older adults in actually causes problems rather than helping the immune system when patients known to be infected. There's a lot of discussion about contact. Tracing in fact I think Mayo Clinic has even been working on some Applications to be able to do this without violating perhaps a patient confidentiality etc. Esam unique uses of that. What is it meant by contact? Tracing what is a utility group question that something is standardly done with infectious diseases? So for many infections that would occur. We would do contact. Trace in bat is go to somebody and we wouldn't reveal who but a person has said that they've been in contact with you. They are now demonstrating for example. Burkey l'hostis and we trace out who might have possibly become exposed and therefore infected so that we can offer treatment so the whole idea and this is really important to beginning of an outbreak in order to contain. The outbreak is to understand who's infected and then in broader and broader rains trace who might have been exposed and therefore who might have been infected if you can do that quickly and effectively and efficiently you can and modeling and real life data shows. You can dramatically decrease the impact of the of the Democrat Panda. But we know that not everyone who is affected by cove in one thousand nine needs to be hospitalized in many of us don't live in isolation from our family members. How can one safely care for a covert patients in the home Without putting other family members at risk. That's very very good question. It's a very important one for many of our patients where they may have a family member like that what I would recommend. Is that if you have somebody home. It has symptomatic Cova. You WanNa treat the room that they stay in in a sense like a hospital room. What does that mean limited incursions or excursions in or out of that room? That person is quarantined. Dinette Rome ideally with a window open and you have to treat that room as infected so a a paper released just a Friday. Showed that in hospital rooms as an example. The healthcare workers coming out of that room have the virus on the soles of their shoes. So that means you don't walk in and out of that room was shoes and take it into the rest of the house. That person is masked before they would come out. You don't meals together. The hard surfaces that that person is exposed to get wiped down with appropriate disinfected solutions and a lot of share taken. So that you don't ask this on now you'd think that the risk of passing it on in the context of a family living together would be one hundred percent. But that's actually not what the data shows and I. I'm actually pretty surprised by this. It might be that some of it is that the rest of the family members or a symptomatic since we don't do as wide attesting as we would like to but the numbers in fact show rates as low as ten percent as high as about sixty plus percent so it is not inevitable and I want to make that point because some people think well there's so many in my house than hasn't we're all GonNa get it. That's not necessarily true in it doesn't have to be true. We are obviously still waiting for vaccine for Cova nineteen which may be in the offing Quite some time but the World Health Organization has warned during this pandemic children may be missing out on other immunizations that they would typically be receiving during this time. I'm wondering how does that affect to them? And what might be the long term effects for the children and for society if that occurs. No this is a really important question. In fact let me speak first globally both the polio eradication initiative and the global measles. Rubella initiation and efforts are all compromise in some thirty seven countries I think it is. They have suspended those programs because Healthcare workers are focused on dealing with Kobe. Nineteen so this is how I put it. We get a lot of patient questions about this. There are some axioms. Let's take for example your second dose of shingle wrecks. That we would say well. We'd like to get that second dose within six months of the IOT. So if you're not yet at that time point let's delay that a little bit if it's appropriate in that particular patients contacts and this summer when we hope this will further die down. That might be the time to do it where you can really imagine this being a concern now remember that. Kobe hit the. Us In February was our first known case. Very likely this is speculation. We're GONNA see a second wave of this and of course the symptoms of influenza and Kobe nineteen overlap almost exactly in their initial presentation so one of the messages. I think we want to get out this year. Is that as fall approaches. We want people to get their flu vaccine as early as practical. Sometimes it's available in August early September. That's ideal get it then for kids in terms of their routine childhood vaccines. I'm I'm a fan of a understanding. Exactly the public health implications of those vaccines. So when I'm telling parents is call your healthcare provider and figure out in. This is the word that I use how we orient grasp this. You don't WanNa take healthy kids a waiting room where there are sick people and have them wait for thirty or sixty minutes to get a well child check or a vaccine in many medical offices that I'm hearing about are doing just that. They are Horia graphing. We will text you when we want you to come into the office. You can wait in the parking lot or at home if you're nearby and they're actually scheduling fifteen minute appointments you come in you get immunized. You're out so I I think. Talk with your healthcare provider because these vaccines are important if that's not done. Is it possible to miss the window? Altogether for a child to evac saints no and that's something other than shingles where there's a little bit of an issue there with windows. There really is no vaccine licensed in the US where if you're outside the ideal window that we would start over we would just take off from where we left and administer vaccines. That's not the ideal but it's very doable. Now is a maintenance. I sometimes during this went so much. Focus is going to illicit sell. You often say thank goodness even though we sometimes complain about it thank goodness for the electronic medical record. I can't remember my own medical history. I would have no idea when I last had immunization or by got my flu shot in for that matters my list and the shot was. I don't know seven years ago eight years ago. Well thank you so much Dr Paul. And do you have any last words of wisdom or information you'd like to share with our listeners. Think something really important to say and I say this out of encouragement people are stretched to the limit right. It is difficult to give up. Our normal routine is particularly difficult. If you're caring for elderly people or very young infants or have somebody sick in your home. It has been very hard for healthcare providers. And I just WANNA say. The evidence is accumulating that we are starting to flatten in. Bend down this Kerr. It's a process we've talked about the leg period. It's four team to twenty eight days after you don't see any cases to know there won't be any more cases so we've got a ways to go with. This people are working on road maps. For how we slowly in a phased in way reopen. But it's really important for all of us to be encouraged into use that encouragement to hold the course and not prematurely fatigue than say. Oh forget it. I'm just GONNA go out. That would be detrimental and then we start all over again. A good reminder and it really is good to hear some encouragement. Feel so uncertain. I think it's hard when people just don't know how long and what this will look like exactly. Well thank you so much. Thank you for joining us on. Mayo Clinic QNA.

Don don that action. The conspiracy theory ripping through the anti vaccine worlds may finally drive some anti massacres to do the unthinkable. Where a mask and keep their distance conspiracy which comes in several shapes and sizes more or less says the vaccinated will shed certain proteins onto the unvaccinated who will then suffers side effects that are adverse the main worry is that the shedding will cause irregular menstruation infertility and miscarriages me entirely baseless and debunked claim as part of a word conspiracy that cova nineteen was a poitou did depopulate the world and the vaccine is what will call the masters anti vaccine. Influencers are used me from that. I had like a lump in my throat. Anti influencers government is getting in second vote. Whole format run smart things.

Who was found to be the key in spreading copen nineteen conspiracy theories suggested on a recent antibac- slightest dream that you may have to stay away from someone who has had these shots forever. Another prominent anti vaccine larry polansky a newark pediatrician and anti bhaskar suggested quarantining people who have been vaccinated. There's something being passed from. People who are shot up with his poise limb to others who have not gotten russia may should also have a badge on that. Says i accident even though it's not accede that's a long long so that we know to avoid them on the street do not go anywhere and society. He said that's like eerily similar to the holocaust that might be why people are bits. One perplex poster on the fridge site. Fortune asked their fellow non if they should wear a mask around the vaccinated because they shed. That are ima- rene stuff. I'm going to be watching. Not just southern folks. Let's i know.

But your eyes cross eyed. Then it can't read getting into character. Learn how to read with your eyes cross. I going to need to wear masks to protect ourselves. From the vexed. Good very good. Rice challenged carly could for you. While they conspiracy as baseless. The fear is causing vaccine. Skip the fear. It is causing bacterium back the fear it's causing vaccine skeptics. Is mary real. And where there's fear there's money to be made anti vaccine influencers like judy megabits. One of the leading figures from the film plan. The neck are set to make big bucks as antibac- service purchase max masks and other holistic supplies from various websites products owned by these influencers outright. Who'd like to go first round one. I'll go okay. There didn't write earlier. Guy brennan a time and ideas so get ready gov my ass backwards believe had protected my mother's back for decades step on a crack pot cracks crack crack.

And i have to cracks the holes the holes gotta come out of somewhere real estate down the crack the whole come out of somewhere you wanna go the only way we can protect ourselves from the vaccinated to get a shot of adrenaline constantly like jason statham paramount. Don't step on your mama's crank. Make your mama's thinking of your dad. It's also important to note that vaccine transmission is especially high in capitol buildings election recount stadiums and anywhere outside your house so you should not go to those places surprising sport avoiding people who have been vaccinated also support not allowing people to have abortions and then expect those babies to starve ill. I've gone through the trouble of faking my credentials in order to enter anti vaccine businesses. It's pretty easy just by a pair of truck nuts. Engine dutton's stereotype vaccinated. And i have three pairs of truck nuts. Multiples of everything is sounds garlic. He's wanting to show us her crotch. Because there's just a mess down there to see my new online waldo original. That's what i call him. A original parts. You can pry my mask off my cold dead face right after they shut off the been later. Rick this is why. Jesus spent all the time with the lepers.

I think ricky just opened like a facebook post that was political and is just reading the comments just filled in a political mad libs sh and he the name of disease the name of a savior i need. I need an abomination before the lord. Listen guys i know masks are bullshit and they don't do anything to protect you. But i think we should mask up to protect ourselves until his vaccine. Thanks past get kicked back to our normal fear based anxiety filled conspiracy driven lives normal so i didn't have to get the shot. The sore arm the fever and restless. Night i could have just had a dr coffin. My mouth yeah good point. Yeah we're gonna get all these vaccine vaccine sheddings shit I'll remember that for the next plan. Democ that'll do it for the jokes around one ear and craft the point. Checkout usually around is tough to judges because all the jokes are good but this is absolute opposite anti jokes. And i'm not just saying that personal opinion. I don't think any of the jokes really garnered much of a reaction from unequivocable fact. I went outside and told these jokes. People who focus group them. No there's been significant data. That suggests your jokes were best. Demand a recount. I dunno. it's it's perfectly within your attitude if you don't want to be honest happened. I don't think it. S maybe not. What this judge. But it's definitely had with our previous yet. Didn't like us at all so sorry. No i was gonna say the funniest thing that happened was when i was taking notes on this app. It autocorrect jason state. Them to jason statham is how you spell. It is separated the word so it's what aaron was laughing about the story in it. Nothing to do with anything. I would like to point out once again in a previous episode. You're in the biggest for aaron. Was rick going. I was whole idea about macho man saying he literally to sound he dislike eating care about. The jokes probably didn't even remember reference reference to the last episode. Go with your strength bob okay. Which is it's the journey of self discovery. What are my strengths.

What's your opinion of your wife. Well she thinks he's really great. Got good monsters gloves. Our kids. I'm going to give the point to aaron and carly because that was hilarious. What happened earlier and definitely the best part of the round. So you've got a point. I have so many people think. Thank you erin for your judgment garin. Making him a whole man tall man power plant in which is also growing. I'm pregnant sorry just wanna clarify. Just wanna make that clear if this if we're all women we'd be like oh my god but we're all guys like you actually destroying feet human high round twos. In order to human stem cell.

And you're gonna edit by my goodness going to improve band. Wow all right. Someone had mentioned earlier. Abou- something about their experience in relation to the story about the woman pretending to be in school. So my question to you is what jeremy with the yearbook reference. What clubs you guys in in high school ball club like catholic thing religious. Just got a wild hair. One day and what i joined the club in one of your habits and everything drama club thespian club dramas different clubs trying to resume was another one. I did acting and plays dead performing. Not how i think that was the remember. I wasn't any clubs. But i was on the forensics team and i did do acting forensics team speech and debate forensics for some reason. I don't know why i never heard that. It's like the acting competitions. That was the debate. Part. debated you about you reading your. It's all forensics carly when i get on top about this shit. Forensics i was in drama club. I was in cheer. I was in choir cheers. I hung on for. And then also i was at my. Our mask was the trojan so i was a trojan ambassador which meant like if a new student khaimah campus than i give them a tour and yeah and then also i did. I was very involved in my high school. And then also we started a group called the shalom club and it was tradit- students at my high school really like engaged. There was only like eight jewish kids in my high school. But we did it because we wanted our own yearbook. Votto burning question is what is your first memory which came up on accident. The episode prior did aaron have an answer to the previous question nor he talked about it on the last episode. Aired was born at the age of twenty five in a factory in japan. Let's talk about the current episode aaron. I'm sorry i didn't know what we didn't have clubs. We had concentrations like theatre music arts and cows fourth one. I can't say just called. Something different erin went to an arts. That's right with beyon- say right now. Lisa keys norah jones. Joe was there actually graduated before me but her band was there my my freshman year and they were their senior year anyways Yeah so. I was in the music group and we had a lot of things going on so music. Okeydoke great question. Carly nothing funny. Yeah nothing funny there every okay. What is your first memory which everybody has a first memory. Not everyb- robert didn't have a good response to what your question was. Because he didn't do any clubs in high school. But you clubs in high school the reason you ask those questions so that you can answer them this carly. What's ricky. I feel like you have a first memory in mind that you'd like care. My memory is some ga getting up and putting on my mom. My mom had made homemade sagan. Rick i i couldn't hear it. I was getting up out of bed in the morning getting my homemade popeye shorts and putting them on and you were like fifteen sixteen. I think i was must have been really young. Because i also remember having these little mcdonald ma babies things. I remember going to mcdonald's to get it. I looked it up. It was like nine hundred eighty six. I was two years old So i remember being three and we had a birthday party for my dad and my dad's cousin knew was a magician so he knew these magic x and he had like a silver mask on part of the illusionist costume. Freak me the fuck out. And i remember running off being scared of him and i was three so the dad. No it wasn't illusion. I so i. I think i remember this. But that's the thing it's like i. I'm not entirely sure if this actually happened. But the the pieces are there. But i remember my sister night. I we had a little pedal cars and a big wheel. And i think the big wheel is mind but i wanted the car and if i if i am in fact remembering this then we would have been like to three years. Old respectively assistant was too. I was three respectfully. But but i don't know if that is in fact that memory or if i just saw pictures like the might. Here's a german study that took place that day. Were able to implant false memories into like a mask groups of people and then they were all they do. They do that all the time in l. a. false memories good one recipes land landfalls memories. Yes that's why. I'm not waxing. And they were also able to extract the false men. Memories from the same people didn't have the memory anymore. They had the memory but they they recognize that it wasn't real eternal sunshine and spotlessly no fake memories. It was like they would literally convinced the person that they had a memory. That wasn't real somebody but it was like implanted into the pool with science though anyway. Yeah it is kinda messed up but it happens to people. I do that all the time. Now that wasn't cheating. No i was just because we're asking burning questions from other episodes last episode. We had the story of the kid who ordered on amazon. Punch bob and carly shared a story where she ordered on her mom's credit card. Some catalog order by phone. China dishwasher or something. Did you guys ever buy something or ask someone to buy something. That no four year old would rationally like want. I'll give you an example burning questions always bringing up your story. Jazzing me asking what clubs that you guys were all is terrible. Question locking specific finger to clubs they room. High school is not wasn't so that i could tell you what comes i was in. Don't i don't think it's a conscious thing. But i do think that happens a lot. Have you guys ever stayed in a bed and breakfast. I've never stayed in a bed and breakfast question all around. I didn't even have an answer for it. goes like. Don't ask the question. So that i can answer them but sometimes i have to answer them. I can give you time to think. Your answer is pretty clear. I think it's pretty clear that we all can do each other's roles better than everyone else. Okay here's here's my story. Where aaron must've already told his story because carly usually the last one to tell it and wrap it up because she was like waiting patiently to tell her story. No i'm wanting you guys answer because you're excited to answer ricky okay. Here's my story. Real quick clubs. You were in robert. I wasn't any okay when i was four years old. Mom took me to see santa at the mall. And i asked him for my own refrigerator. Wanted so that. I could keep my own milk for cereal and soda in my room amazon. One click. I would've ordered a frigerator. A frigerator Reverting back to the for year old days frigerator never heard of many fridges. Jeremy i know i was four.

Iran Soleimani death: does Donald Trump have a plan? Plus more police for London crime spots & hope for the high street
"The leader is delivered to your podcast provide at full pm. Every weekday bringing the best news analysis and commentary for one of the country's most trusted newsroom subscribe. It makes you you get it on time now from the Evening Standard in London. This is the leader. Hi I'm David Marlin the. US has killed one of Iran's top generals else now what there's a suggestion that there may be cyber attacks than they terror attacks there's also suggestion that's allies of the United States could be in some danger. We speak to our correspondent. David Gardner as the world waits to see how Iran responds whether the president trump has a plan. Also very young people who've holiday started taught their lives have those lives brought an end the standards home affairs editor. Martin Bentham as mad police commissioner. Cressida Dick writes for the paper to announce more police will patrol. Oh London's violent crime hotspots and so they posted a five point two percent full price sales rise business reporter. Joanna Burke somehow next is giving hope to the high street that before London. Men's fashion week begins taken from the evening. Standard's editorial call him. This is the leader for the whole thing. Pick up the newspaper had to stand it to kill UK slash comment in a moment. Iran says it will take crushing revenge over the death of a top general channel. Does Donald Trump have next move. Our president will start a war with Iran because he has absolutely absolutely no ability to negotiate. He's weak and he's ineffective so the only way he figures that he's going to get reelected and assures you sitting there. It's the start a war with Iran. Donald Trump in two thousand and eleven claiming bannock Obama would start a war with Iran to get reelected last night. The manno in the White House and facing election this year ordered an airstrike and Baghdad. Killing Iran's most powerful military leader Kassim Sulejmani. The countries are at the brink curve. War On addity. Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif appeared on state TV to say it was inactive. Tamara's them but our editorial column says it was a high stakes gamble that might achieve results. If the PLO general Selemani as the man behind both brutal repression of demonstrations with Iran and his country's aggressive expansionist activities in Syria Lebanon and Iraq has a vile recode food should leave few mourning his demise. President trump is not necessarily wrong to respond to the recent killing of an American contractor in a missile strike in Iraq blamed on our own previous attempts by Barack Obama to rein in Iran through a more conciliatory approach largely failed the question. However as so often with president trump is does he have a strategy? Eliminating a hated figure is eye catching but has he had effective long-term plan for a dealing with Iran. The world waits to see how a you ask correspondent. David Gardner is in La. David who was general salamone solemn mainly is hugely popular inside Iran. Not Very brave leader. Second only in popularity to I- atoll. How many a Time magazine? Profile of two thousand seventeen described him. Something like this is said to Middle Eastern Shiites. His James Bond Owen Romo and Lady Gaga rolled into one to the West he is responsible for exporting voting. Iran's Islamic revolution supporting terrorists subverting pro Western governments and waging a forum. was once the White House saying about what happened. The the White House has said that the Operation Strike Somaini was at the direction of the president. They're saying he was planning strikes on American diplomats and military personnel at the time of his death and they're put the responsibility for the deaths of hundreds of American coalition service members at he's door. They're saying he'd orchestrated attacks on coalition bases in the route of the last several months including the attack on December the twenty seventh Mr Trump himself off. He tweeted a simple photograph of the American flag. Some of his staff were more pointed. His press secretary claimed claimed the cutting of Cellini was the greatest foreign policy accomplishment. I would say the death I if not allies time. No sense of modesty there. David Harrah's ran reacted acted. The question really is is. What will Iran do to retaliate? Didn't see too much question that they'll do something. There's a question as a suggestion that there may it'd be cyber-attacks then terror attacks the Pentagon said to be bracing for these kind of retaliatory attacks. There's also a suggestion. That's allies of the United States. Could be in some danger so that would possibly include the UK that may indeed mean that. That's British British military bases will be on high alert. There appears to be concerned that the president made this decision without Congressional approval in the Democrat controlled House or they been saying Democrats in Washington very unhappy about the way it was handled. They extend that Congress should have been involved they should have been some kind of vote or at least some kind of Acknowledgement of what was going on. Joe Biden the he kinda front runner fool the Democrats nomination for the presidency accused president trump of throwing few onto the fire He's he's actually words. Were talking stick of dynamite into a tinderbox. We could be on the brink of a major conflict across the Middle East. was He's warning interestingly. It boasts George Bush and Barack Obama did have occasion to to go ahead with military action against Iran and they were given decision to whether or not to go ahead. Both of them declined deciding that the escalation could be too serious. He's on the effects on an area in a region. Turmoil could be just too immense to take that risk. It appears that president trump hasn't take that KOSHEN A he's jump right in next the commissioner says that she mets mothersill eleven children who huping killed. She wants to ensure that they're far fewer of those mothers that has to meet in the future home affairs. Editor Martin Bentham Looks Admit Commissioner Cressida Dick's article in the standard outlining. How efforts to tackle violent crime? In London you can read it in the paper or a standard took codeine. UK They met Commissioner Cressida digs written for the standard pledging. Police will redouble their efforts to battle London's violent crime problem. She's making making a list of promises for more officers on patrol and violence haunt spots to engaging with young people to divert them from crime. She says every murder over attack is one too many and this newspaper agrees as Dame Cressida says in her Oscar for this newspaper today. It is particularly distressing twenty five five of the one hundred forty. Nine victims of last year's bloodshed were teenagers but every one of the homicides in the past twelve months was a tragedy it is is right. Therefore that the mets should use the arrival of twenty twenty to enhance its efforts to prevent further bloodshed. It is clear however that while Dame Cressida understandably standardly focuses on her own offices can achieve much of the long-term response must be for others to deliver as Dame Cressida says London owes. I use it to the grieving parents to stop the killing. How words must be heated by everyone a home affairs editor Martin? Bentham is modern one of the things things that we've drawn out in the leader today from crested addicts article. Is that twenty five of the one hundred forty. Nine victims of last year's bloodshed were teenagers. This someone's going to be done doesn't it. Yes although as the commissioner herself points out in the in her article and as we would endorse every single services in an awful tragedy and everyone would be better be if it could be prevented it is particularly upsetting. Obviously when very young people who've holiday started their lives of those lies brought an end and particularly when you see the dreadful fashion in which some of this happens people for being hunted down brutally attacked in a in a way that sort of almost incomprehensible to most people I think that some complete lack lack of regard for life indeed the consequences of the people who are carrying out those killings so yes definitely more does need to be done. The has being a lot done already by the Metropolitan Police and indeed of was associated with trying to stop This this violent crime and helping some results there. Twenty three percent fewer stabbings of young people under twenty five age twenty five or under in London over the last two years so the Matt points to those statistics as a as a broad indicator of some success but clearly a as they are the first Rod Mason the commissioners. I admit today. It's still not enough because unfortunately still too. Many people are dying crested. The Dick has written about what the police can do. And while the police Allah to in more more officers more targeting of no knife carriers more work inside schools but this problem Kombi solved by just the police loose house. What exactly rally? And we believe that the long term solution is is what now is referred to as the public health approach where you try to tackle the problem at its root source. A stopping people getting being dragged into crime in the first place stopping them. Picking up the knives in which is what's causing these injuries and fatalities in most cases stopping being somebody who's already picked up a knife from carrying out a weapon is quite difficult. Can't always be successful. The ultimate solution has to be to deter them and persuade them that that is the wrong way to live their lives. And that's a better way is to go down a different route and yes exactly. That's why investment in whether it be more work in schools family friends and commit communities actually need to be providing even more than they perhaps do good role models challenging those people within communities who condo knife-carrying another volunteer for behaviour. It is quite an extraordinary thing. I'm from Matt Commissioner to feel that they should write an article for a paper like the evening standard or paper anywhere really where they have to get this message out there. It just shows shows how big an issue this London and how much everybody needs to get involved in order to to do something about it. Well I think the commissioner says that she met Sir recently mothersill eleven children Who've been killed and talk to them and that's in essence? She wants to ensure that in the fall few of those mothers that she has to meet in the future and that everybody want must be doing something that if they can to try to prevent us and so Oh yes it does tell you. The problem. Is there that that she feels the need to to write this article. It's an important message. I think she's she's conveying and Walnut thinks people should as we say the today should heed and you can read classics piece in the Evening Standard or online at Standard Talk Code Uk. London men's fashion week starts at the weekend just the head of it. One of the country's biggest fashion retailers has given the sector but of a confidence boost next is striding into the new year off the back of a five point two percent rise in sales our business reporter. John berks covering the story and Joanna. This is a bit of a surprise. Isn't it yeah I think for the city today. It's a pleasant surprise. January three is often next is the first of the big retailers to report Christmas trading. So in the coming weeks we've got all the big supermarkets reporting. We've got John Lewis. We've got some of the fashion guys so today. Next gave us a nice pleasant surprise at upping profit and sales guidance for the upcoming financial year and that was on the back of Rudy. Good Christmas trading can that be continue. Does all those other companies make their announcements. This is what the market is going to be watching closely. Okay so I think let's not get carried away delving into next numbers for the trading at Christmas so they posted a five point two percent full. Oh price sales rise and that's from October twenty seventh to December twenty eighth but if you grinned down into those numbers you can see that most of that sales growth came from online so next doing very well online. They had a dip in sales In their stools APP and that was better than they had expected. Affected that dip to be if that makes sense and I think looking at the rest of the companies to follow there's optimism but let's not get carried away nice little surprise ahead of men's fashion week in London. Though isn't it okay. They'll put a spring in the staff of a few models going down the catwalk. Yeah I think so. Let's bring better next to fashion. Their fashion retailer. I spoke to their chief executive Lord Wolfson this morning big sellers for them. Were Jumpers jackets. It's boots Paul. That was partly to do with the cold November. However you know? I think there's no harm in having a bit sentiment going to men's fashion week we've got new steps out this week which showed road in the west end since Christmas has been an uplifting footfall in the west end only marginal but it's encouraging to know this floods of international tourists ambrose in in town of course all the attention will be on all photographers and all the fashion. The fashion industry itself is really big for London's really important part of the of the economy. Yeah I think the businesses businesses in the fashion sector. You know we've had political turmoil. We've got brexit. Despite that we've got companies including menswear labels have been opening shops in in the last twelve months investing into London so these brands still see the capital was a gateway into the rest of Europe. They want stores on Bond Street they want to be in the heart of the menswear land. So I think you know. This is a big chance for people to showcase new designs and show. Hopefully that London is open for business. And that's the leader. You can subscribe through your podcast provider and we'd love you to give us a rating to. We're back on Monday at four pm uh-huh.

So many people that I've worked with have given birth and the parents to new babies. What he wanted with a new baby. Show them off. But they can't take them out there into the big wide world but fill its offer raisin to reduce the spread of Corona virus and predictive honorable. Like Lola who is s medic and and not only. She worried about who health She's a travel Russia in tough times. Yes I focused mostly on travel. I've written for world nomads. Few Times that I also write for Union Travel Voters Lonely Planet Culture In also cover a lot of other beats as well irate about sustainability year right about wellness. I really love to write profiles of women of color who are doing amazing things in their communities so right now. I'm focusing a lot less on travel. How has this pandemic effected? You'll you livelihood really really been shocking. You know I feel like my whole life been told not to all my eggs in one basket but all of my eggs in one basket. I've been traveling fulltime for five years in writing about the experiences they have while I'm on the road and working with tourism boards and hotels and tour companies to help tell their stories mislead focusing on projects that are community based or standardly lead. I'm worried about myself and my own livelihood but I'm also worried about all those small tour operators in Little Vegan restaurants. I've been to or places that are creating a safe haven for elephants that have been the tourist industry. They're all really gonNA suffer. You know there's no one knows the bail them out but personally. I've seen a major loss of income. I've lost thousands of dollars in confirm stories had been killed and then looking forward. Almost none of my publications are accepting travel. Pitches right now. The leaves me pretty much out of work and I was meant to be on a press trip right now in Ecuador going to the Galapagos and Amazon rainforest so that then would have generated more work for me. That would have been writing about that. In April I was meant to go to Puerto Rico. I was working with the tourism. Board there to learn more about sustainability on the island. I'm really passionate about telling stories of rebuilding and how the community there has come back. After Hurricane Maria. The impact is deep in the tourism industry. You know they say that one in ten people is employed by tourism. But I do believe that tourism will make a comeback right and that it's GonNa help the global economy when it does all these people who are cooped up inside their homes around the world whether they're travelers are not. Were really having a rude awakening. That like he's short and precious and whatever we're dreaming of. We should make it a reality. So I think we're GONNA see people travelling who maybe wouldn't even identify as travelers before. But maybe they've always wanted to see the Eiffel Tower. I think they're going to go through that trip once they can. Now we'll be fooled. Hit Pause we was suffering in a lot of destinations from tourism. Do you think that's going to be the case? Wants the world opens up again. I haven't given too much thought but I do think it's interesting that you know. We talked about Uber Tourism. A lot of the conversation goes to destinations in Italy right. Chinky Saturday can only handle so many people climbing through the town to go see all those colorful buildings. Venice's literally underwater her more and more every year. So it's GonNa be interesting how those local governments decide to handle tourism moving forward because there's been a lot of pressure on them some the local community for a long time but now they really have a chance to to revamp the way that they're going to accept tourism. So where are you at the moment I am in or acquire? I'm an airline American citizens. I have double citizenship. My father is from here and my parents retired here in June and I decided to make it my home base for six months. I was meant to leave in March this month and I've been traveling back and forth a lot. The last six months going on trips to the Caribbean and to the US for work and now it looks like I'm here kind of for the indefinite future. Which would be all right but it's about to be winner and I haven't lived there winner in five years because I have asthma. It's really difficult for me when it's cold out which is obviously another big concern of mine right now with. Crow virus absolutely ends. You mentioned when you emailed me and you just touched on family then you have a sister in Washington who is also s manic. So my sister's actually on a flight on her way here right now when you finally able to convince her that she's better off being with us and Erg y shut down the airport so she's flying to Brazil will arrive tomorrow morning and then we're kind of figuring out how to get her here using buses because she is really at risk in DC she by herself so we want her to be here with us. She's in law schools. Who really hesitant to leave. But it looks like things in the. Us Aren't going to be improving anytime soon. With so e feel more secure having her here with us where we do have really good access to healthcare and it seems like most people are taking it very seriously. We don't have a mandatory quarantine or shelter at home yet but from my window. I can see all of the day the city where I live and every store is closed and I only see people walking with bags. Look like they've been to the market so I do think people here are really taking it seriously as of right now most non essential appointments are being encouraged to postpone. We've canceled all of my dad's coming appointments about two weeks ago in our in our building also we can have doctors make house calls for free as part of our rent. I guess so. When there's like a minor issue we can have them kind of come here and assess us and they came here two weeks ago for a non-related issue. We asked him. You know what was happening at the hospital even two weeks ago when we only had four cases in the country and not even in the city where I live they were already preparing the hospital and making a separate division. That was just going to be for people who could potentially have corona virus to try to separate that part of the population from people who are currently healthy. Who are coming in for other issues. I have left my house for two weeks so I have no idea what's happening out there.

StoryCast '21: EP 5/21 Trapped: The Chile Miners
"This is episode. Five of story cost twenty one. I'm jane secca in august twenty ten a mine collapse and the subsequent efforts to rescue thirty. Three mine is in two md. Underground was watched by a worldwide audience of nearly one billion. This is trapped the chili maynas. I'm jonathan samuels. I'ma sky news presenter. The san jose mine is right in the middle of the atacama desert which is in the north of chile. And it's about an hour's drive from the small city of copy apple. We pulled up on october. The sixth two thousand and ten. What we saw was remarkable. There were hundreds of tents they were camper vans was a great deal of industrial machinery in our member. Just hearing the noise of generators. I can hear the noise of the drills constant banging thumping these thirty. Three flags are remember up. High on a hill leach. Flag representing a different minor. And they would be touring like crazy in the breathe. The original mineshaft zigzags for miles as it descends seven hundred meters the trapped men of taken refuge in an emergency. So those this constant hamas activists has everyone waited and wondered about the fate of these guys trapped for nine weeks off from all beneath our feet. A green bay pulling the key looming quilliam. I arrived about a week before the end of the story if he liked the. If you can imagine the mind was a bit like a corkscrew. Because he was a series of zigzag road trucks would drive up and down these roads to bring the copper and gold from the bottom line is up to the surface. It was quite down deeper near the bottom of the mine whether these men were when one of the tunnels collapsed thumb camacho. It'll only one of the new one we just doing some jovan and subtly just a huge huge amounts of folks like really huge amounts of rook. Coming down the where to go on and we tried to run we. We said that that's about. It would debt and wandel the whole one of the miners. His name was edison penna. He was thirty four years old. He was an electric by trade and had traveled to the san jose. Mind to find work in an better life. And wasn't this impossible to get out. There is no way to get up because wall. You know what i mean. He's a huge exit. Be big wall of rock. Don't even aspire community. The rescue effort started immediately. Of course they started drilling boreholes desperately. Trying to search for signs of life motive. This until knew that when we start here in the data that that and we never know if he's going to drill in the place that we want we were scared when the scared because we must must of the time we thought we are going to die. Everybody was laying down. Everybody was just with with no hope. It was very difficult because he was complete. Downing's there was no light so seventeen days had passed two and a half weeks and i don't think many people expected any side of life after all that time. Then a miracle. From deep deep underground the strains of national anthem. Melissa twenty-second suddenly a drill broke through into the underground which just complicates world. Leave i wanna leave. When i just wanna leave the my life be with my friends. Just breathe there. I wanted to wanted to be outside and just leave. You know amazing. He's leaving the trapped men of taken refuge in an emergency area. Six hundred meters down there linked to the surface by a six inch bore hole used to communicate and get supplies to them. Plan areas cameras was says down tiny hole from the got those first spooky images in black and white grainy images of the miners all grinning at the camera putting their thumbs up waving the pair of eyes shining through the dark confirmation that they had indeed survived focus now is on keeping them food and water medicine. Of course rehydration tablets in the likes cruel be sent down to the rescue is on the surface. Scratch their heads and four great. We found them. How the hell do get them out. Two thousand feet above them. Their families watched the video images. Emotions must be very mixed. There was a lot of worry because this was a very old mine. And if we go down all guns blazing to pull them out with huge drills. Then there's a real fair that we could cause more collapses drilling to get them out will probably begin within a few days and this is what they'll use a massive drill being driven to the site in northern chile. Everyone knew that just one wrong move could undo only amazing weather to be done so far once in place it will begin the long hard work down familiar kilometer to reach the men it's thought is specifically designed lift can then bring each of them to the surface one a time. They looked at lots of different options. And in the end they decided the best one was to just drill straight down and ending up alongside the men were and then pulling them out individually using a capsule it looks like something that masterminded built. And it has a name to match the phoenix. But this'll be going seven hundred meters down. When i heard of the plan was optimistic. So i start running. People said to me that they shouldn't be running. But i i just i just need to do something i start running because they wanted to say these mind is not gonna put me down. We're going to rice. So there was quite a lot of space down there for the miners. There weren't completely squeezed into this tiny hole they had about. Two kilometers of tunnel and edison was a fitness fanatic. So the we start to pass four weeks five weeks six weeks. An edison spends a lot of his time running up and down the mine tunnel. Trying to keep fit bone in the heat of the desert. Edison was a big elvis fan. Not only with the fan but he was also a bit of an impersonator thrive of the love. Love songs to keep the other miners. Happy them all singing. Along as well. And i think he's even doing the actions. What i really think that god was happy when i sing because when i sing i knew that god was listened to me was seeing him because god want me to sing. It's now october. And the men have been underground for more than two months. That have that communication tunnel but it was any the width of a coffee cup but what they needed was the rescue tummy. That tunnel which was going to the width of the capsule for the men to squeeze in pulled up to the surface and then on that day. They were sat there in the dark. Make it hair. The drill getting closer and closer. Suddenly the tip broke. Three and women shouted. We can see the knows it's through. It's through the standardly. Those operating the drill reveled in the moment to a no there was this manus above volda because we heard this guy. Comedians politicians for the only person that i want to see upstate was my brother. My brother was one of the real person about not part of this festival. This this this madness but don't get in the next few days. Rescue workers will undertake one of the world's deepest mine rescue attempts. The miners had been warned. I remember seeing plans for this capsule thinking. There's no way there is no way to do this. The able will be brought out first to make sure. The capsule works followed by the week. And the most able we see these guys and minders minors they used to working in pretty inhospitable places. But i think even for then. Psychologically this was a big deal getting into this cage that you could barely fit in having the door shut behind you just giving your life to the people on the surface journey could take anything from fifteen minutes to one hour. The man in charge of the rescue operation wounds. It can't be wrong. the only way was this capsule. you're not able to move you heart to be quiet and you know you had to be quite you know why because it's the only way in this this thing sounds like and you had to be quiet and you know. Why does this no other way these just the only way out. You have to be quiet through stephanie. A moment when we rule desperately hoping that this was kind of work for all thirty. Three men when i saw some kids running around camp and their dad was down there and remember these were young. They had young families. And i remember looking the kids thinking god. I hope you'll dad comes. It is midnight. Here in chile at the san jose. Mine and the tacoma does it. We are watching. It's now to thirteen two thousand ten ten weeks since the mine had collapsed in the drilling had stopped and the wolves this almost harsh across the camp because we knew the day arrived and everyone was just silently praying and hoping for the best outcome inside the capsule five minutes twenty six into his journey to the surface where everyone is waiting wonderful. Fussy i was. I was not afraid because i knew that. In twelve minute or something. I'm going to be out and i'm gonna eat the world. Lay my ducks my google. Docs go if you unleash. A guy. Go dog and he's gonna run and i in. Nfl like it was like a dog and they went on stunned. Running and the world over we can watch. Is that wheel turning as it holds the cable the capsule on the end of it up to the surface the journey down as a correspondent as a reporter on the scene witnessing history of sort of slightly removed from the action and from what's going on president per year awaiting also on the surface for some reason this was a completely different as but now the top of the donald. There seems to be some sort of activity as they released. The pulley just sat there watching the monitor gripped by like a billion people were around the world. Fifteen minutes eight seconds like the families were in their little camps like all the rescuers were standing watching as well somebody for a moment. The gatos there for work and was completely caught in the moment. When i get out i talked to god and i said got your am. I give immunity either legal. I want to be tough. And i want to say that through. I promise. I love things job. Decide condo popol tried to mason changes and wasn't true way. I'm good now. I now i am something god now. I am one of the three miners rich. Well that was the plan. Send the capsule down with the rescuer. Bring up a minor down six hundred twenty. Two meters of narrow tunnel chilean mine rescue has to be probably one of the most amazing stories that i've ever covered in twenty five years of the journalist and his following the rescue of the thirty three men. Chile's mining industry has safety. Overhaul but edison pena and many of the miners say they have never been properly compensated for safety breaches that contributed to the collapse of the san jose mine and left them unable to work the chili.

Back to the future-planning: France
"Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist Radio I'm your host, Jason? Palmer. Every weekday we provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. Paul Russo Geena an activist who saved twelve hundred lives during Rwanda's genocide was charged with terrorism this week. How was it? He was lured out of exile what will happen to him now. Rwanda leadership faces many hard questions. And you'd think the European Single Market would cause consumer prices to converge across the block. You'd be wrong our correspondent bravely charts the costs of Nappies to reveal the shortcomings of Europe's allegedly level playing field. But I? Wanted to. Yesterday in Paris French Prime Minister Jean sticks unveiled the country's Corona virus recovery plan just as daily new infections near an all time high. The stimulus was the first to be announced by a big economy since the European Union agreed at seven hundred and fifty billion Euro Recovery Fund in July. The plan is focused primarily on boosting companies due to run over. Two. Years. Does little directly support consumer demand a traditional engine of French growth. Between the first and the second quarter of this year Francis Economy suffered its worst fall since the Second World War drinking by nearly fourteen percent. The plan also includes reviving war institution to ready the country for a post covert era. With twenty two presidential race already in mind the economic recovery will be central president. Emmanuel macron's reelection hopes. Yesterday fronts launched its response to the shock and the economic recession caused by covert nineteen. So if you'd better Paris bureau chief. What's it did was announced an economic stimulus plan worth one, hundred, billion euros, which is one of the biggest in Europe. So far as what is a commissioner? Whose job is to oversee more of the long term planning thinking about preparing France for twenty thirty two let's start with the stimulus plan. What exactly is in there? Well, it's a package is going to be spent over two years at two. Thirds of it comes from the new European Union recovery funds that fronts helped to set up and part of the idea of short-term. Sir that's to try and keep businesses afloat to try and keep people in jobs during this recession and to try and kick start the economy so that France can emerge healthy a from it over the next year or sir, the fridge economy shrunk by nearly fourteen percent. In the second quarter that's better than Spain but it's a lot worse than Germany and the government has already said that going to extend further schemes for another two years it's promising tax cuts for business and absolute commitment not to raise taxes, and so that's the view of kick-starting things in the short term, what are the longer term aims here but I think what the President Emmanuel Macron's trying to Do here is to turn what's his a crisis into an opportunity and she tried to both increase and also redirect French public spending and public investment. So on the one hand, there's a significant amounts Nydia third of the hundred billion euros that's going to be devoted to greening economy. So this goes from insulating buildings to creating bicycle lanes to investing in the hydrogen economy, but on the other, it's really Looking at skills competitiveness, how to train people in a way that will respond to the new sorts of economy that France hoping to build or his anticipating might emerge from Curva. So this is particularly aimed at young people who are coming onto the labor market such an incredibly difficult time and I think one of the interesting things about this plan in a way that if you look at the German. Stimulus plan, it was very much focused on tax cuts for individuals trying to kickstart consumer spending in France has a feeling that that isn't the issue that actually because of the furloughs beams that have been very generous in France most incomes have been preserved, and in fact, consumers have been saving money so that there isn't an issue with the demand side it's more about investing in skills in companies and. Industries and what about the new commissioner you mentioned who will oversee long-term economic learning? Well, this is almost a throwback to the post war era. If you remember in nineteen, forty six, it was the French I introduced this idea of the plan under shoulder goal and it was all about rebuilding the country that have been devastated by the Second World War, but I think what they're trying to do in. France is think for the long term think about how France needs to prepare for twenty thirty, and also how to strengthen local industries across the country is a particular feeling that France has become too dependent on global supply chains particularly during covert, think the shortages of mosques, for example, and they want to strengthen the industrial base of France and that's what this sort of new idea of planning all about. And what's your take on how the people of friends are thinking about these moves and the moves until now they seem satisfied with the way the government is handling the economy during the pandemic well. I think the the the French is a general rule tend to be dissatisfied with the way the government's Ron. Whoever is in government and during the pandemic, there's been a lot of uncertainty and fear as has been anywhere else and that has been reflected in poor opinion poll ratings for the government but. I think that the numbers of this plans a size of at the scale he has really focused minds. Some of the opposition politicians who generally criticize everything the minute it's been announced to have had knowledge least this is serious and significant, and if put in place properly, it could really make a difference in France. Especially, in the short term, do you think the whole set of measures will help Mr. macron politically it's a difficult one. You know we are about eighteen months away from the next presidential. Election, in two thousand and twenty two in mind beginning to turn to that obviously one of the interesting things about macron's popularity ratings or lack of popularity is that if you look around in France at the moment at she, there is really no alternative credible mainstream political leader that has managed to emerge to take him on the left and the Socialist Party if you look on the right in the Republican Party even in the Green party although they did well in recent elections in cities, they haven't Yet managed to find a single leader who can push them forward in a national level, and it's that which in a way you have to set against my cross low poll ratings the French may be unhappy with him, but they don't seem to be happy with anyone else and the only character that has resisted during this whole period of courses is on the far right and that's marine Le Pen who manages to somehow retain her support even though she hasn't really played any role retool during this whole. Crisis in France and and what do you make of this evident return to something like state planning than in of President who came in as a reformist? What is some ways? It does look like a sort of u-turn almost a throwback to the past the idea of a commission charge of the plan is much sounds like Franz of the old days and was elected precisely not to do that but to sort of disrupt. France and Reform France, modernize it. But I think in a sense. What he would argue is that he is to use the perhaps the tools of the past. So that is a long term planning strong role for the state high public spending and investment in order to bring about the modernisation that he thought was necessary for. France when he was first elected and indeed during his term in office as President so. That's the way he's trying to spin this, and I think one of the problems is that he has put on hold some of the reforms that he did promise to bring about I'm thinking notably of reform to the pension system and another to the unemployment system those have gone on hold because of covert. Tangible but if he's going to bring them back in that means doing it either in the middle of the recession this year or next year, which will be a pre election year in France and as usually happens in pre election year a lot of fine words and up being ignored. So the long waits the more difficult is going to be to return to that. Reform. program. Sophie. Thank you very much for your time. Thanks. Jason's good to talk to you. On Monday Rwandan officials said they had arrested Paul Russa Geena for terrorism offenses. Mr Russa begging up first came to prominence during the country's nineteen, ninety, four genocide in which hundreds of thousands of members of the Tutsi. Ethnic Group were slaughtered by the Hutus. He harbored more than thousand to seize at the hotel he managed. Never. Global. Fame. Followed and a Hollywood movie in two thousand five he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by George. W. Bush. The United States honors Paul Recessive Geena for his spirit and bravery in defending and carrying for his fellow man. But he's become a strong critic of Rwanda's President Paul Kagama and lives in exile in America. All those people who advocate for human rights. For, our right up put in prison. Now, the head of the Rwanda Investigation Bureau, is accused him of being the leader and sponsor of extremist terror outfits. So this was a big shock not least to his family because they were under the impression that he was safely at home in San Antonio in Texas where he's usually based. Michaela wrong. Right about Rwanda for. The economist they hadn't realized until very late in the day. He had let them know that he was flying to Dubai for meeting. They say, they don't know who he was meeting in Dubai and it's unclear how he got from Dubai to Kigali in handcuffs and being charged with some very serious offenses quite a dramatic story then for well known a figure from Rwanda. I think it would be, let's say that pool RUSSA's out by denies is probably after pull Tagami. The president of Rwanda is probably the most famous Rwandan outside the country, the best known Rwandan in the West. We have been abandoned. There will be noticed you can only save ourselves. which is largely thanks to the Film Hotel Rwanda, which Don Cheat all-stars, which focuses on the remarkable role. He played during the genocide of nineteen, ninety four in which he as the acting manager of the hotel meal Coline, which is the landmark in Kgon. Gave them refuge two, thousand, two, hundred Rwandan tootsie. That were quite to be massacred on the street despite the Hutu extremists militiamen who were rampaging through the city and they gathered at the hotel and he he kept them in the hotel and sort of show that you know when the militiamen and army generals who are responsible for the nine hundred, ninety, four genocide can knocking at the hotel doors he would cajoled them. He would sort of bite them off with the best cigars in. The Best Scotch and yet crates of beer in his office and he was someone who was on good terms partly because he was a Hutu, he was from the majority Hutu ethnic community, and so they thought of him as one of their own. So he would ostensibly have been on the pretty much the same camp as the people who ended up ruling Rwanda how has he seemingly no ended up on the wrong side of them I think this happened quite soon after the genocide he was this a Hutu manager required a very high profile abroad, but he was never quite as popular at home and he became an advocate for human rights. He also became critic of the government. He felt that a lot of the work that the government was doing the new to see dominated government even though it did have Hutu ministers and key positions he felt that it was a cosmetic when they're wear multiparty elections he pointed at the sort of rugby unbelievable results sharing that Polka gourmet had won. Election figures that went into ninety percent and higher, and since said, these ludicrous results next can't possibly be credible. He was sort of poking holes in this success story that they're one patriotic front and POLKA. Gomez regime was presenting to the world of look look how we've rebuild our country and let's not forget that Polka gummy got a lot of aid from the West because of that very successful image that he created of a progressive country that was put an appalling trauma behind it. But what exactly is it that he's charged with now? It was interesting very soon after he was arrested on social media, you were saying supporters of the government in Rwanda circulating I clip I bleed. The. National Liberation Forces, and let lodges against the Army in order to free that one people off him hernia giving an interview in which he's talking about the armed struggle and saying that all political means have failed and he calls in this clip for the Rwandan people to rise up and to support the National Liberation Front, which is the armed wing of coalition of opposition groups, all of them based in exile outside Rwanda and so that's clearly gain to be a key plank cook the prosecution case against him will what do you make those accusations than? It does seem that he had gone on a trajectory I've spoken to his family of spectators son, and the sun is adamant he said, look the guy is not a terrorist. He didn't know how to handle a gun. It would never call on someone to take up a gun and kill someone else is just a human rights campaign and someone who who had a voice and expressed himself, and that's just not tolerated in Orlando today and what about the nature of the arrest itself though the fact that he was arrested overseas brought her wander onto these mysterious circumstances the reason. He lived in fear of this kind of kidnapping conditional. However, we time what has happened is because they're running government has got a track record of mounting these very daring more sad style operations. It's done this before it doesn't seem to regard national sovereignty as an issue when it's trying to reach out to intimidate bully kidnap and the accusations assassinate critics, all members of the opposition or troublesome journalists abroad, and in one of the most egregious attacks that full my head of intelligence a Patrick, our guy was strangled to death in a hotel room in Johannesburg the evidence is there. Has All come up in court pointing to the fact that he got it feels it has the right. To reach out across the world and chase down its enemies in a really terrifying way, and now they've reached out for Paul Rousse Saba Geena. One of the questions has to be what does Kigali get out of this. What's the point because the armed groups that he is said to have been supporting the coalition that he was a part of doesn't seem to have amounted to very much regional analysts will tell you that it sort of fell apart in two thousand and nineteen has really been a united movement capable of doing much on the ground. It seems to me that it's more about maintain this image that. We will hunt you down I. Mean could go may has said in various speeches he's given his said you know you can run, but you cannot hide will find you and they're often the local of retribution meted out seems to be ultra proportion to the misdemeanors or crimes that the critics is people challenging the regime are actually guilty of. So what's been the international response to to this act? Anyway, I think the response has been extremely muted so far receive various human rights groups who regarded recess beginners hero they have been spoiled and saying what on Earth is going on from the Rwandan perspective I suspect this is in danger of backfiring on them. Are they going to put him on trial? Are they going to have a? Tron which members of the press of international journalists and ambassadors will be allowed to sit in and listen to the evidence because they don't tend to do that very much and it's definitely going to put an awkward spotlight on the relationship between Western aid donors who support that government and will now be as well. You know, what do you have to say about this government's human rights threat? Michaela thank you very much for joining us. It's the passion.

European. Businesses big and small to prosperity. But if you take a look at how consumer prices vary across the union, it seems that the boast of a unified level market is well full of it. In Europe the cost of nappies or diapers listeners prefer varies hugely depending on which country you're in Dunkin Robinson writes Charlemagne the economists call him on European Affairs They can be very expensive in some countries and in very cheap and others which in the European Union which meant to have a single market is a bit of them. So how much does the cost of nappies diapers vary across the so it can be huge the way of checking this I logged onto Amazon just fired up the different countries websites in the US you basically get one Feis for for Amazon's products but in the EU, you get very very different places. So if you're in Spain, you're looking at paying about fifty years for an enormous box of nappies diapers, but in the UK, which is. Still Single Market you're looking at sort of twenty euros France thirty, and so the prices can vary hugely which you wouldn't necessarily expect given that anyone can log on these websites in order to anywhere. But I mean, presumably, this disparity is not limited just to nappies everything costs differently. If you're trying to specify machine, you can pay up to one hundred years more if you look on the website while the German one and the same even. With mobile phones, which you'd expect to be relatively standardly price across the whole block but you often get huge shoot savings by just logging onto a different website savings up to two hundred, three hundred yoga as often. But the assumption is with the European single market that over time these prices, all prices would sue to to a greater or lesser degree converge. Why isn't that happening? So places were converging for quite a bit but stopped. Around two thousand eight says since the hasn't really been much price convergence and there's a few reasons for that. First one was that there's fewer big integration steps. So like those the year over the Millennium, and then you also had the economic catch up in Eastern Europe where eastern Europeans started to get much richer and become not as rich as western Europeans, but much closer, not sort of close the gap a little bit since then that ketchups. Much, less pronounce but you'd expect some divergence anyway because prices being made to match what the market can bear. Surely if there are still poor countries in richer countries, there will be lower prices and higher prices. Yeah and sometimes, price divergence is good. So Bulgarian GDP's about sort of age online thousand years per capita on German. GP's close to forty thousand years. Obviously, those consumers can't afford the same voices for similar products but at the same. Time, it demonstrates that the single market isn't really market. It's effectively. So the twenty seven national markets and it means that there are still barriers when it comes to borders for trade and opportunities for arbitrage right we run down to Bulgaria get a couple of big trucks full of nappies and sell them and Germany. That's interesting thing with the vice of online shopping is that people can now sort of log onto any website wants and buy whatever. Products, but there's still a few obstacles. The main one is delivery costs. Knockers quite bulky and heavy and a relatively expensive to post within a country. But the moment you sort of trying posted to a different country even one just next door it inordinately more expensive and that's not necessarily because the distances anymore. But just the the the market isn't built that way. It's still very much a national market and so is there a push? To a desire to make the prices converge or is this the sort of the steady state of the market that some push the main efforts, the US making us to sort of try and make livery prices in a you a little fairer to consumers. But the the other thing is I. Think most European consumers quite aware sick. You're in countries like Spain or Italy. Then you're often being ripped off quite badly. There's always criticism of the EU. Sort a top down project, and so it is sort of integration from the bottom up in that consumers do you need to do it themselves? Duncan, thanks very much for your time. Thank you. That's all for this episode of the Intelligence. If you like us give us a rating on Apple podcasts and see back here on Monday.
Privacy concerns over genetic genealogy
"Come journey across the globe in an immersive storytelling podcast with film maker Salim Russian Walla on pin-drop from tat this season checkout musicians trying to save an indigenous language in Lima what happens to the Tourism Paradise Rapanui also known as Easter Island when people stopped showing up and explore what it means to start a black utopia you can listen to pin-drop wherever you get your podcasts. This is. PODCAST for the family of Christine Jessop and the man who was falsely accused of her murder. It offered at least some closure. Toronto Police announced last week that they had identified. The man they believe is responsible for the nine year old girl's disappearance and death in Nineteen eighty-four, and they did it using an emerging technique not as forensic or genetic genealogy this has been around in recent years used in recent years to identify serial killers, clear missing persons, cases, and reunite families, and while it is giving police new hope it's also raising concerns about privacy more on that in a moment first though I'm joined by forensic genealogist who worked with Toronto Police on the Christine Jessop case FAA redgrave good morning. Good Morning Tell me about the role that you and your team played in identifying the man that police now believe killed. Christine JESSOP. Yes I was the lead forensic genealogist for the team that. came to a candidate. For the Toronto Police. We received the The kit number associated with the perpetrator DNA, and from there we did our part to. work on the genetic matches of of that perpetrator kid the the living cousins would willingly submit their DNA. To and and opted into law enforcement matching. So everybody had already agreed to this. for us to use their relationships to each other to determine where this unknown person fit in with that puzzle and where they might fall in relation to everyone. So walk me through how you do this. Please give you a DNA sample. Then what happens? Police the DNA samples to the lab. The lab goes through their process to create a digitised file that has been uploaded to jet match or and or a family tree DNA. The lab was author him out of Texas. And I was the lead forensic genealogist for the lab. At the time I am no longer working for them but this is one of the cases that I've contracted with them on. So when the laboratories the DNA sample, they digitize it and form it into a file that can be able to these sites. Once it's uploaded, I have access to that information via logging. And our ability to seize the DNA matches of this kit the people who share genetic material with the identified person. we can see them, but they can't see us because it's an open forensic investigation and we go in through Through a law enforcement. flags kit that doesn't show up in other people's nationalists. So, for example, if you were working with. If if you had done a DNA test, you would see everyone in the entire database who had also tested that company. We only get to see the ones who have clicked a little button that says I, opt into law enforcement matching and we're invisible to them so that they can't see arc so that we keep the investigation private. How close of a relative do you need to find in these public databases in order to identify a subject to the think of of? There's that the cliches a needle in a haystack, but the haystack is gigantic here. How close a relative do you need? Well. It's not just one needle in a haystack. It's several needles We it it depends on the case Sometimes you get lucky and you end up with a first or second cousin who's just sitting there, and then you can figure it out sometimes relatively simply if that relationship to that person has documented and they're not an N. P. E. or not parent expected, which is when you know you don't know exactly who your parents are. and what usually happens is that we have a whole bunch of people who are third cousins or more distant and we and we find clusters of those people who are related to each other figure out who their common ancestors with each other, and then we can assume from that point that if we know that two or more people descend from this one couple this third person who don't know who they are probably also descends from. There, and we have to do that a whole bunch of times over and over again and find the places where descendants of those those common answers couples also marry each other and make somebody who combines the DNA, and is the likely place to look for the person that we're trying to identify the same technique in some ways. That's that's used by those ancestry sites try and figure what your family tree looks like. You're just using it. To to match DNA, that police have submitted to you to try to figure out who a suspect might be. Yes. It's it's very similar to the way that a person who is adopted might search for their birth family. Except in our instance, we can't ask the person who the DNA came from where they were born what their name is or any an unidentified information. and we're not working on identifying their parents were working on identifying them. So it's just Kind of the same puzzle, but on hard mode and also we don't contact people and ask them tell me about your family. I'm looking for somebody because it's an open investigation. We do our best to stay quiet in the background and not not reveal information about what we're working on. You know what you're investigating when you were working on this case did you know the specifics of it or do you just have the DNA and you're just trying to find the match? Yes, we did. We knew the specifics of the case. It's very important for us to know the specifics of the case and be in contact with the. Investigating Agency in order to get more contextual information because you never know what piece of information is going to be useful when you're working on one of these cases and they might not give it to you right away and you might have to ask and again that's another case in which it's very similar to how you might work on an adopted case. They might know a story from someone that they don't think of until it comes up unless you ask them like I'm this happening is this something that I should be concerned about? So yes, we had the the details of the case we knew where and what had happened and we knew we knew about the wrongful conviction we knew about how there were very, very many people who were investigated and cleared. Through DNA or otherwise. So we we we knew the long and arduous tree of this case. Your interest in this in the beginning your interest in this field is personal just briefly tell me about how you got involved in this. my partner and I are we both had our own mystery solve. My partner is adopted and I didn't know who my father was. So we learned how to do this on her own. And a couple of decades ago, and we've only gotten significantly better since the by way of working on working. Ireland puzzled and helping other people after we took care of ourselves, we just got better and better and. And then when the advent of DNA happen we were. We were doing a lot of this before we had our our DNA test. Once we started working on the genetic aspect of things and we got into genetic genealogy. We started volunteering with the DNA doe project when that first started over two years ago. And what's that on a lot of? Pardon. What's that project? The. DNA Though project is a nonprofit organization that works to identify John and Jane does using the same method and it's a way for agencies to. Bring cases to their project to be worked on by volunteer genealogists with no limit to the number of hours they can work but they can only do this for adults and identified this seat and say they don't do this for perpetrators or children. So that's an advantage that we have being our own being our own company. We're now incorporated as our own business redgrave research. How reliable is the science? Yeah Well, it's incredibly reliable because in the grand scheme of things everyone has parents everyone has the DNA of their parents and therefore you are very likely to have them genetic cousin somewhere who's already submitted a DNA test it's. It's not as thoroughly vetted yet as SDR testing, which is a standard for forensic DNA. But what we ended up doing as we come down to the nearest possible identification, we can get sometimes it's the it's usually the exact person if not a group of siblings and then we'll pass that handed for identification to law enforcement to follow through with confirming the SDR testing or fingerprints or dental records or interviewing family members. So so they considered a very highly scientific tips that's being passed off. And therefore for extra assurance that we have the right ide- and the means that are standardly used in court as forensic evidence I ask in part because there have been cases where the wrong suspect has been identified have a listen to Michael Yousra filmmaker from new. Orleans was questioned by police after forensic genealogy identified him as a suspect in horrific rape and murder case he spoke with PBS Newshour last year I kept asking questions like you know to somebody. I, know do something horrible. And finally after maybe about an hour to. Had just basically go now we think that you you know you were involved with this crime and I'm like me when it came crashing down was when they walked out of the room and the biggest state policeman that I've ever seen in my life came in with latex gloves and a cotton swab and said I'm going to take your DNA now that DNA tests ended up clearing Michael usery but that took weeks for it to happen. Do you worry that there's a lot of excitement around this case in particular because of the answers that have been found decades later? Do you worry that the work could end up winding? Police down the wrong path and leading them to the wrong person. I believe that if I personally have the ability to communicate directly with the law enforcement agency and tell them exactly the information that I haven't explained it in terms that are very clearly understand. I understood that particular situation will be completely avoidable in the case of Michael usery he was wrongfully accused due to. honestly, I believe it was a communication error between the people working on his case and the law enforcement agency because that was done with wide DNA and a possible surname was presented. But it may not have been fully understood to the person that was communicated to exactly what that meant. It wasn't a confirmed idea. It was a possible surname, and as we know, it's entirely possible for a patrilineal surname to get broken along the way and not be the right name in the work that we do. We use autosomal. DNA. We very rarely use Y DNA in our in our process and that that's more specific and that that set for purposes of confirming. Just before I let you go are there safeguards that you think need to be in place to ensure that this technology which is growing? Is used appropriately. Absolutely. I personally feel that there is a middle ground in which people who are working on cool case investigations for for families who deserve answers and they've been waiting a long time can do that and also respect the the privacy and personal concerns of people who are living DNA matches or relatives who might be looked at via DNA. There are very clear terms of services on the sites that we use and they should be adhered to. There's. there's not a whole lot that goes into. Really making it clear. What that means I there needs to be more public education aspect to what it means to opt into law enforcement matching and I think there also needs to be more education for departments on how to use it appropriately and fairly. And that's actually something that my my doctoral studies are on right now is actually developing educational materials and policy making and training programs. The future of the steel can be protected in a way that serves everyone fairly room. GonNa talk more about that right now in the meantime Anthony Appreciate speaking with you this morning. Thank you. Redgrave is a forensic genealogist worked with Toronto Police to help identify the man that they now believe was behind the nineteen eighty-four murder of Christine Jessop. Hi Damon fareless host of hunting warhead from CBC podcasts in the Norwegian newspaper vg hunting warhead follows a global team of police journalists says the attempt to dismantle a massive network of Predators on the dark web winner of the Grand Prize for Best Investigative Reporting New York festivals and recommended by The Guardian Vulture and the global. Mail. You can find hunting warhead on CBC listen or wherever you get your podcasts. Hi I'm Josh Block host of uncover nexium from CBC podcasts. I pull back the curtain on the secret of self help group that experts call a Kalt and follow one woman's heroin journey to get out. The podcast was featured in Rolling Stone magazine and named one of the best podcasts of two thousand and eighteen in the Atlantic. Listen to uncover escaping nexium on CBC listen or wherever you get your podcasts. Brenda mcphail is with the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and has been listening Brandon Good morning to you. Ethnic Redgrave uses commercial DNA databases. When you hear about the work that he's doing and those databases what concerns you most from a privacy perspective. I mean, there are really nuanced issues at play in cases like this because of course, it's a good thing for the Jessop family has finally have closure. the public wants justice in these kinds of cases, and it matters to all of us that they get solved. but you know there are important things to think about when it comes to using commercial or public genetic databases for policing. Because you know DNA is the building block of our bodies. So it's the ultimate in intimate and sensitive information There's a bunch of these kinds of services out there they range. They're very different in terms of what they allow in terms of police interaction with databases. some don't voluntarily cooperate with please let them upload data and others do. So it's somebody's buyer beware, but it's buyer beware in an incredibly complicated environment where the consequences for clicking the OPT in as your previous said are huge and for many people really unknowable. The investigators working on the case used this ancestry site called ged match, and the disclaimer there says that users have explicitly given permission for their information to be accessed by law enforcement is that enough? The question is whether or not somebody who just wants to go online and find a long lost cousin ever read or understood that policy or what it might mean for them. you know. So again, there's a fine line between informed consent and meaningless consent and meaningless consent is contrary to privacy laws here in Canada and many other places around the world. and. Then we have to ask what does it mean to give consent to using genetic database Because you're not consenting just yourself. I'm at this is hunt suster matching year consenting for all those who came before you. Your children, their unborn children, and you know forward into the future. So how reasonable is it to ask one individual to consent to the exposure of of that many others who are connected to them? Is there any precedent for something like that? Where were you click? Yes to something but it has nothing it might be something to do with you but it could. Possibly implicate many many other people. Are. The most recent example is probably the Cambridge analytica scandal, which is a very different kind of situation. But where you know a few hundred, thousand people agreed to survey for research purposes and ended up implicating all of their friends and the friends of their friends and the friends of those friends extending to millions and millions of people to profiling. Ultimately with the purpose of influencing elections potentially. So that's a sort of a contemporary example of the way that these sort of affects can can ripple out expend and in that case I mean there have been investigations here in Canada. The basically said, that was absolutely not a legitimate way to go about collecting information Benjamin. Berkman is a deputy director of bioethics at the National Human Genome Research Institute Maryland take a listen to his thoughts on this whole new field of genetic genealogy once people see the the power of this technology and the the ability to bring these cold cases to justice years after people investigators have given up on these cases I think most people will feel. Pretty comfortable or even enthusiastic about it, but you know some people. Have a distrust of law enforcement. Some people feel very very sensitive about how their genetic information is shared and used even think those people are all going to be in the in the minority It's still important to respect their views friend mcphail. He talks about the enthusiasm that people have around this technology again on Friday when this information Thursday and Friday when this information came out around The Jessica case you could imagine that there were a lot of people who would look to law enforcement to say, okay what else can you do with this? Are you concerned about that enthusiasm? Very concerned I, think that. All we're we've got all kinds of new technologies that are allowing us to do amazing things. It's natural and reasonable and right. In fact that law enforcement want to use them. But but there's a trend towards moving towards bulk surveillance technologies. So this genetic kind of matching essentially searches, tens of thousands or more looking for one. We've got other examples of these kinds of relatively indiscriminate technologies being used by police got MC catchers. Simulators that captured the information from people's phones of everyone in the vicinity again, looking for the identifier of one. Facial recognition has the potential to scan everybody in the space rendering everybody identifiable again, looking for one. Essentially, what it is is a fundamental change, the social contract and democracy where we expect to be free of scrutiny by the state unless there's a reason to believe that we're danger to society. And with these kind of methods of surveillance, everyone is under low-grade suspicion all the time. It can be you ask what the harm is that if we can catch a really bad guy, isn't it? Okay that you know the rights are a little bit infringe for the greater good because people say if you've done nothing wrong, what do you have to worry about? Right, if now, you have nothing to hide, why do you care if you're looked at and then dismissed in a police investigation? and. There's two kinds of risks there one you've already highlighted. It's the risk of MIS identification and the anguish that can come from getting it wrong and let's be clear that. People have different risks of that mis-identification going very badly because they don't have the resources to get themselves out of. The there's an example of a guy who wrote his bike around his Florida neighborhood using a fitness up on his android phone. He's got a message from Google legal investigations team telling him his data had been requested and a police investigation. and when he was smart, he was a young guy who is smart enough when he told his parents, they said, we're going to dip into our savings. We're going to get you a lawyer. and that was very wise because he was able to get himself out of the suspicion of a particularly violent burglar in his neighborhood that he was suspect of because police got a GEO fence weren't to see the location of everyone in the vicinity of that crime and because he's been out doing laps on his face. you know he was a suspect a cautionary had to hide the ten pounds he was trying to ship. But he got caught up in the investigation a cautionary tale Brenda will leave it there. I appreciate you speaking with us this morning. Thank you. Thank you Brenda mcphail director of the privacy technology and surveillance project for the Canadian Civil Liberties Association for more CBC podcasts go to, CBC DOT CA slash podcasts.
Secret Dump #23
"Welcome to the endless honeymoon podcasts. We're on locked down. I have two words. Few moshe lockdown. Only they oh. Wow you really are. You're coming into your own as a jew. Although you're wearing a very christmas the outfit when men say if you're wearing red it's christmas or stripes newtonian restaurant's tablecloth stripes red or i don't know checkers or a flower.

Sarah silverman gave me this job. Cute or they artichokes other green roses. We just got an update that los angeles has gone into full lockdown.

Motorcycle automobile or public transit is prohibited but in the same announcement beaches are open for recreation as is gulf. How do you get to the beach. It's only for people who live on. The beach are still allowed to go to the beach and people who golf are still allowed to golf. What do you mean people that. What do you mean rich. People love beaches. Engulfing the i'm saying to the beach. Well they're saying that we can't walk around the block. This would be people that live in the ocean can paddle to serve and then paddle back to their home. What about the mayors. Who are telling us all of this. And then they're on vacation. Oh yeah we got a text from chelsea peretti friend of the show about some some mayor who Our mayor just at the french laundry. Yes that did happen. That was that was amazing. To i mean the the the unbeliev- i mean just so you know gavin newsom. You don't really. I know that gavin newsom up on him. He's like married to trump junior's ex wife or something. No what the other way around. He's the he was married to. Trump junior is current wife. Have the same taste. By the way. How do you go from the couldn't be more transparent if you're married to a democratic thought leader to a democratic cocaine a republican cocaine addict. What your vibe is. you're not really politico. Your like your. I don't know what that is. What do they call you. Know how they call comedy groupies chuckle fuckers and they call who says that never heard that but i mean i would never repeat it. Well i did it for comedic effect. But chuckled fuckers. There's other ones like that too for different genres. What is it called when you only have sex with people in power politicians. When you're like how the bouvier daughters like one married like jacqueline kennedy married president and then her sister married a prince and then didn't she marry another prince whose whose onassis he. Yeah i think that people are just raised to like find a person in power to procreate with. That's what you did right now. That's what i did. Look gavin. Newsom used to be the mayor of san francisco. That's that was his first. A big job and I would say. I would say it's impossible to imagine he wasn't snorting piles of cocaine the size of the golden gate. Why i mean look at the guy got that. Hey gordon gecko hair that likes slick power man hair. Anyway your plane is that they're just hypocrites. Well hold on my point. I'm going to tell you the story of gavin newsom. because it's a doozie. He's a hot and sexy politicians. So people will not let his political career die but he was a mayor of san francisco and big time. Party animal allegedly. I don't know any of this first. Hand thick thick with a little bit of a bridge on the top. I don't know that personally but it's it's it's regular length but it's thicker than average reddish cubes. Tastes tastes vaguely of musk. Musk is the good one right. Must disobeyed one. Oh right well must is worse than mosque. But i'm not a fan of musk. Either the most manly musk's in the pleasant scent family must think it's gross but yes anyway gavin newsom big controversy because he was caught fucking his campaign manager and best friend. Alright was one man's wife so he got the guy who got him into power. He was fucking his wife. The whole time. Married to kimberly guilfoil. Who's now married to donald trump junior and then became the attorney. General of california then became governor and was having a real kind of nice people are starting to forget that he had done all that stuff. He still had a career after fucked his campaign manager life. People won't let him die because he's so handsome to like he's handsome. Let him just google him. I didn't know he was that hansen's beautiful he fucks like a stallion. His body ripples firmness softness to to anyway he he did this press. He got busted at a restaurant like the most fancy restaurant in america america. They only have like. It's like you have to get a reservation. Six years in advance. It was so funny. His apology was just like a look at the of the french lottery. By fred's fiftieth birthday. And i shouldn't have done. I should've known maybe it was a little there. Were more people there than than i had expected. It was in the afternoon. It was in the afternoon as if it was germain. Oh yeah like like time of day matters for cova right and the ostentatiousness of the restaurant is anyway. My point of all of this. Oh well we wanted to talk about this this mayor mayor adler of his the thing that chelsea austin sends out. That's mets it. Saying we need this from chelsea peretti. We need to stay home if you can. This is not the time to relax. We may have to close things down if we're not careful. He said in a facebook video to austin residents taped in kabul san lucas. He was in kabo telling the people of austin. Now's the time to hunker down these fucking people man. These sick fucking pigs doesn't gavin. Newsom think he will get cove it at the french laundry indoors with twenty people in a at a table avenue. Some everybody wants power doesn't deserve it and these people that get power they really every one of them except maybe bernie sanders really think that they are like gods among men day. Say that about obama but he is kind of god. He probably thinks of himself. That way to these peop- anybody that wants to be president or governor. Shouldn't you should never give power to people that want power. And so they think they're above it all but it's just like it's not going to a restaurant is bad it said if you're the dude making the rules you can't do it. It's like bill clinton always thought about like you just can't get your dick sucked by an intern. I know you're horny. I know you're horny. But you're the fucking president they didn't have like you know virtual fucking then like now. Virtual horn wasn't as what is virtual yuban up to. Can you put on an oculus and like put your hands in some kind of like. I have an oculus. I just think like maybe porn has gotten better in the past since he fucked monica lewinsky. Maybe you think if there if pornhub when clinton was in office he wouldn't maybe no you don't think porn helps curb some of these men's like appetites. I don't that's an interesting question. I don't know the has infidelity gone down since the advent of internet pornography. doubt that. But now can't you like meet a girl and go to the same girl over the internet. You mean like web cams yeah. I don't know you're not a regular. No honestly webcams. I've always made me. The idea of webcam. Ing with a person makes me a little uncomfortable. Their lives they're right. Yeah i just. Why would i want that. I don't want that kind of creepy. I'm like where's the bbc. big butkhak. Also oh well we have a friend Do you know ryan singer. You may not know him. He's a great comedian who he was online one time and i think i'm talking out of school to tell the story because it's such a good one and he's talked about it in public. Basically some girl was. He was camping with some girl in the philippines. And he's like dick out slathered up chomping away at the bit and all of a sudden like she disappears in some dudes. Some dude comes on filipino guy. That's like hey motherfucker. We've been recording this whole thing and we're going to release it all of your facebook friends and everybody contracts unless you pay us like. I don't know some amount of money. So he starts like haggling with this guy. Look could you just do it for like one hundred dollars. And basically the way i found out was he announced he was like look. I was fucking jerking off to somebody and They're gonna they're blackmailing me. And just not going to pay it. So i just decided to let everybody know preemptive. Can you imagine your mom getting that message. That's crazy yeah anyway. Well i know that you say that. We're not a political podcast. I don't say anything and You know. I think that it's just really hard to make of what's happening right now. So i think it's nice that you address it and You wanna start getting into some comedy. Oh wait. I had one more point about bill. Clinton getting his dixon thought about this a lot. That is a very depressing point that the people who want power grab it. They don't deserve it and we can't trust them and they're in charge. Oh you cannot trust anybody that wants to be in charge and unfortunately never want to be in chart. no i to be in charge of my creative projects. That's kind of want to be in charge of like my child rearing. You know what they should do. They should they should find a way to make to elect to president. The president from some like some senator. That doesn't want it and they should just. I don't know how you do it. Because then how do you get democracy. But basically it's just it's like these people are mega maniacal imagine one of the leader of the free world the leader of the free world. Everybody when trump got elected was like. Do you know how much he gave up. I gave up to to serve us. I'm like yeah. Did you think that being present wasn't a lucrative or attractive. He's the leader of the free world. I mean if you're a rich person what's better than rich person. The the most powerful person in the world. This is how you know. We're in a fucked up time as i ask. Sometimes i'll check into trump's twitter and every single one of his tweets like fifty of them. It's like there's a little message that's like this is not. This is not a real thing this is. This has not been proven. That just feels like it'd be everyone's tweets wants tweeting anyway but it's amazing as the president you don't even have powered and not i mean that's what he wants. He wants to sue them for doing that anyway. I wanted to make my one point. That i've been thinking about what this clinton thing since nineteen ninety six. Because i was like i i was like look i get being horny but like just. Don't do that while you're the president. Just don't do that. The eyes of the world are on. You gotta be a moral leader back. But then i realized it's it's not that they do it despite being powerful. It's why they do it. It's the same reason. The powerful people like harvey weinstein used to you. Go harvey you. Could you could pay for sex. You could get willing partners bill. Bill cosby why would you do. The the the the psychological like tower in that makes you want to lead the world or be the most famous person or be the most powerful. Hollywood that makes you want to do the dirty thing and makes you want to do the abrogate the the rule and violate because you're powerful and you have power and you can do anything. And that's part of ood right because it's not like he was just horny. He's like i'm the king. I'm item in here. Girl one can tell me rules. Don't apply to me. No one can tell me that. I don't get to get a blowjob from the interns around here. I i am. The king worship me and and anyone that and that's all these people are doing. Every politician is a pile of shit. Which is why i like to vote for the the policies. I believe in not for the people which is white sox did. We vote for like charisma. That's what we do like the decent man that decent men will send drones to yemen. That'll be that'll be a decent man. There will deregulate environmental rules and make the earth cook. But he's he's got a grin. Hear you i hear you to. What do you think i just think. It's not fair that the the politicians can break the rules and then get like a really nice cocktail for covid and then they're fine right right. You've thought the rules but you also in this position where what happens you. You're gonna get in mega infusion of all getting that when they get sick and it saves them right. Well i mean there is nothing more old school i mean. That's straight up. Let them eat cake. You know let them get it okay. So let's do want address. It looks a little bit of mail. You want to take some mail. Yeah i like when they send. I like when people send emails to the podcast. I don't have open my dark. Dmz your dark dm's i go to my dm's and it's just like gross old. Like people are like. I wanna sniff your bum. Yeah i wanna sniff your bunghole. You have some characters in your in your comments that i recognize as recurring characters like every time you post is like a guy like tosh lacey. Unawares what i mean to loved you in world's dumbest sometimes known as this kind of depressing. Like hey are you single. When it's like okay. Do you follow me like i. You know about postponed my family. Would you say to them. Don't respond obviously but we're looking through it to see if there's any. Does anybody hot enough to respond to know honestly. I'm sure a lot of people do that. But what i'm doing. I never even look at their pictures. I'm trying to find email a mail from our friend from our fans. I don't know what this is about. I'm gonna. I'm gonna read it and it's has already read it. I don't know what the title or the topic of this is. But here's the email high motion. Natasha love your stand up in. Love the pod so happy to have you in my life each week. So far seems positive. I wanted to let you know a few things about raoult's okay. We're going back to the tasha. it really is the best store-bought of sauce available. And i think unlike our election something about the blind taste test must have been rigged so he's a singer. Election was not rig yes and politics more politics there also. I don't take a stance on whether our was rigged it. Also saying raoult's is clearly better than i also add a cup of raoult's to broths for soups and stews. And it comes through for me. Every time sounds pretty good. Takes my minestrone to the next level. Okay i'm a therapist in portland. Oregon and i have had a few clients who have had serious anxiety about a secret as a way to expose themselves to a small amount of distress about their secret being revealed and confront the negative power of the secret. I have recommended a few clients. Call the secrets hotline. How about that were two of them have and said it really worked. They said saying their secret out loud anonymously getting a light roasting by you both and the overall lighthearted feeling of the secrets hotline has helped a manning's idea around their secret and feel less alone at weighted down by their secret. Hooray thanks for helping me be a good therapist. Love you guys and thanks. Forget us through pandemic simone. Oh my god that is so nice. Simone pillbox four twelve los angeles california nine zero zero six seven and you can send us. I don't know what do you think per client. Probably i would say five percent of their weekly and we're not going to do it in perpetuity. I'm just gonna take a limited amount of five percent annuity from you. Yes then that yeah well. I never thought that's such an interesting point that telling a secret helps the person of course thought of it like i did. I thought of it. Because when i had the idea to do it i was like the reason that this will be sustainable. We will continue. Secrets is because i mean didn't think about the full therapeutic value of it i'm surprised and delighted by email but i thought people want to get it off their chest. It's like that king has ears of an ass thing right. They they have people that have secrets. Wanna tell it to somebody. And they have a benign. I don't care depository for it is got to be good right. Yes okay grab confession. Oh you do. Yeah what is it. A number of the secrets and number of them are army calling in with a disguised voice. I will never tell you which as long as you're not that guy who sleeps with like a pack pez dispenser that he picks his. You would know image. Still haunts me very funny. You know that was me. Because i would have said i often will pick it my bunghole. Wait can we listen to a secret. I mean we should play secret. But i say that is freaking delightful. The people are getting actual therapeutic. Use out of our secret outline and just think that's so nice. It's not exactly anonymous. What do you mean you could have someone who knows you could listen to the podcast and hear it. Hear your voice. It's bold it's bold. But here's i mean honestly it's awesome and speaking of bold simone in a separate email was bold enough to email us the names and identities of the people her clients the left the secrets. And so i wanna say to. Thomas the pez pez guy. Congratulations on breaking through. And what if it was has. Simone didn't do that all right. Well i wanna your secret now dying for. I want one too because this isn't just entertainment you guys. You're participating in someone's therapeutic process. Hi i'm the secret freeze. Is i feel so guilty about this. I haven't told anyone My friend had a baby recently. And she's very scared about kobe standardly So her role is tested for cousins. Before you see the baby which. I have done multiple times to visit the day. He but this time i feel lazy and so i like screen shotted my old negative test result and someone don't worry I mean knock on wood. Nothing i don't know i i don't know i. I'm hoping that thing from ireland. The nickel with them but just need to hell out. Okay i love the show by okay. Now it's her friend is listening to this. Podcast see. she would be totally pissed at her. I guess this person first of all is playing the odds because there's a lot of friends out there that are probably doing this exact same thing so she's saying you know what probably a lot of people will be upset with their friends right now and say what the fuck but also how bad do you want. You want to see your friends. Baby that bad. That's how much you love kids. But you still aren't gonna love him enough to get tested like how many times you need to see your friends baby a little so much. I can't resist them. But i am willing to risk their lives in order to see fucking crazy. Do not ever do that again. That's first of all you. Your friendship with your friend will be one hundred percent over like it will be over. They will not be your friend anymore. So and why it's exactly said. Why do you want to see the fucking baby so badly i mean and how many even if you were doing the legitimate cova test how many fucking times can you see a newborn. Where the cycle of your cova tests. Don't keep up. we're entering a new era. You have to do. You can't do things like that. In the old era you could but i think that more than ever conscious people need to like. Try to be like doing good and promoting good and not lying and like especially your friends especially if you're good friends who cares about your friendship. The infant don't give infants. Covert also her. She kinda thought. The whole thing was hilarious. Yes sir lighthearted. The chuckles that i mean. I guess we all laugh to try to you. Know roy sky's the pain. Right right right i. I didn't feel like that. I did it by this well. She could have easily replaced like it could have been about anything totally. It definitely didn't have the air of like wait. It didn't have a weight to it the even when she said she was guilty. And i'm just like totally guilty. About what the fuck don't do it anymore to say. What is the problem with saying. I haven't gotten tested this week. I'm not going to make it. I would say that. If i had gotten tested i would lie to my friend and say i would love to come hang out with you and your infant. But unfortunately i didn't get tested so i'm going to be staying home just hanging out and being a cool adult right because the whole point of getting tested like you've done something. You've done something risky right in that week. It's not like she's getting tested doing nothing staying at home the entire time and then screen shotting an old test. Because she didn't do. Anything aren't but i'm also saying i would get a negative test and call my friend and say i might be positive. I'm sorry so that. I could get out of hanging out with them. And that's what i'm saying Let's play another secret again. okay. I have a secret so i was adopted. I'm korean. my family was white and all my friends growing up for white. My family had a little bit of white trash in them. And there's a lot of yelling going on and they're kinda loud though when we would go out to restaurants sometimes a little bit embarrassing. However i would like it when my friends would come along because i knew people would just assume that that was their parent and i were up and looking back on it. I feel bad. I love my family and they were great Little white trashing embarrassing sometimes. And i wonder if my friends ever realized that other people were thinking that it was actually their parents to not mind. Anyway that's my secret. I love the podcast. That's really funny. Cute i love it. I was really nothing to feel guilty about. You gotta take advantage of the opportunities are given. If you're going to be an adoptee can get get it. Get the advantages where you can them. I mean people who adopt kids. They seem like saints to me. Yeah yeah. I think it's probably everyone wants to have their own kid. But like you really don't help you. Can you really can make a difference in the world. I think if you adopt 'cause you're not you're not like increasing the carbon footprint by like having another child and then you're taking someone and giving them opportunities that they would hopefully never. Hopefully you're doing that. I mean obviously there's some terrible situations. I'm sure and it's i'm sure it's a corrupt system. I don't really get the korean adoption thing because maybe it was different a long time ago but careers like a br wealthy country. Isn't it i. Maybe they were born in a poor situation. Or i know a little bit about korean adoption situation because joachim booster is a very funny comedian korean adoptee and he was telling us his story about Adoption of going back and this. I'll never forget. This really blew my mind. He said that in seoul. There's whole Apartment complexes of american adopted koreans who come back to career to like. Do you know find the roots but to live there permanently and they live in like communities in korea so they'll be like a whole apartment building. That'll be all american crying. Would why did they go back. Or why did they live together. Or what do you mean. Why do they live together because they are probably of a of a cultural kind and find it easier. But i don't know why there's an infrastructure available for the people in that community find each other. But i just always thought that was such interesting ideas like all these adoptees living together in seoul but they were raised in america. But they're back to find the roots but they do it together. It's kind of sounds fun in a way like are they all look actively looking for their parents. I don't know that much. I don't know the let's have joking. Booster on the damn podcast. And he can tell us about that. I'm so fascinated by it. Although the problem with joe booster. I'll tell you right now with the problem with him is he's got a fucking advice. Podcast i don't know if i can have the competition on. No we'll have him on. Okay let's listen to another secret okay. Natasha moshe hello and loves the contracts. So if you both huge health in getting through the pandemic So my sacred something that. I've come to terms with chris recently. And i don't know who the talent to serve figure. This will be the best place. it's just In probably the last few years my love has only grown stronger four shopping at walmart. I didn't grow up with that. My first experience of it was in college. And now i live in texas. I don't know. I just love shopping there. A lot of Steak walls on my grocery way strict cheaper there was a curbside. Pickup is really easy. And yes i understand. You know everything that they're doing is to shrink communities in small businesses and stuff. And i should shops locally which i do i do. Anything worked for local businesses. That kind dammit. This is see. Why now i just got back from picking up the other half. I'm like my friend's birthday present from their take just sorta dispersing ethically can probably cut it off there. The secret ended at. You're looking at your punchline lady. A voice i know but i did try to go with her on that walmart journey and i was like there is a certain smell. I i hate it but i'm like what is it like. Does it make her feel safe. Does it like you know that smell of plastic and cheap clothes. You like when you enter walmart like all that like all those fumes from all that cheap stuff just kind of like emanating all you know what i mean like. It smells like plastic walmart. Doesn't it. I don't know i didn't notice it smell. I mean what's the appeal the prices and if you live far enough in the country also the community aspect. What's the community aspect. It's the only thing in town you go there because that's what there is to walmart so walmart to her is like getting out of the house. I don't know i think she liked. She liked the prices. She was mentioning lots of product. I would like the prices of walmart. But i wouldn't want to go there. She was making. It seem like she really liked it. There i mean. I get it. There's something cool about it being. It's not just a store it's a superstore. Knew something cool about like being able to get a set of tires in the same place. You get a blouse. So it's like costco. It's like costco but has diamonds guns river row costco's even more like that. Costco gets like a little wild.
