No, The guy's a great journalist, and he suffered some real physical damage to his brain as a result of being beat up. Since I'm doing so well as a junior apprentice lawyer, Can I try a real stretch? Because Cully a long time ago, when we're talking talking about terrorism in general, I asked the lawyer and it might have been you saying when they say you can't raise money in support of terrorism. Does that mean have a group gets together and says, Hey, al Qaida is short of first aid kits. We're going to raise the money and then by first aid kits and send them to people in Isis or Al Qaeda, they said. That would be a crime because you're doing it even though it's food or medicine or something else, and you're not. Actually buying them guns or bullets or bombs that that's still a crime to give material support to a terrorist. Does this mean we could go after people that a lot of us suspect maybe funding some of these efforts at terrorism within our borders? So the answer is gonna be very unsatisfying to you. It depends. Uh, and, uh, just the life you gotta live in the lawyer lawyer Now it's something that's not always a full state. It's a fight. It depends on the fax. Material support for terrorism is a federal crime, and it typically is applied towards Al Qaeda or the places that we typically associate being overseas. Thank God.

But it's actually been picked up integrated into the recent declaration for the seventy fifth anniversary of the united nations so signed on one hundred ninety three member states in their world leaders who met of course virtually but did so in the last few weeks at the annual high level segment of the general assembly and not only are they saying we need to build back better. They're focused on of course getting their economies going in jobs but n greener so green recovery. This creates such a fortuitous situation because a year ago at the un climate summit the previous the un general assembly high level segment in new york. September two thousand nineteen. It was well known that we are off pace and starting with the biggest countries biggest submitters the biggest economies those associated with the twenty or in particular falling behind on their own nationally determined commitments. You know some of the questions. We need to ask ourselves as the voluntary approach which is at the heart of the paris. Climate agreement whites different than a kyoto protocol. Enforceable international legal instrument You know everybody says this. Revolutionary new model global governance is going to be the future. Because it's it's about in results. Impact that matter more and i agree if it's delivering results than we should all be percent behind the paris climate agreement but when the biggest countries are not even following their own adopted commitments in part because of questions of enforcement and verification and what are the consequences the penalties when when they don't follow through Of course the us did pull itself out Made the initial step towards pulling out in two thousand seventeen and it just happened to days after the. Us election we fully expect on the first day of the the new biden administration for the us to resign in recommitted itself but back to your question on green recovery. It has so many meetings in dimensions to it. But this is you know The fundamental opportunity to wean ourselves off fossil producing engines of our economy too. You know all kinds of green infrastructure investments as i noted sponsor the previous question to government action incentives Really tori environment to really incentivize the private sector to be become the chief engine for the green technologies which i think are going to be at the heart of a green recovery but yet it's not going to be done by any one country it's not going to be done by government or the private sector. It's going to be a combination of these actors. And of course we're going to have partners in ideas coming out of a civil society think tanks universities that are gonna be central to not only pushing the debate in terms of what green recovery could mean and be realized in a practical sense. But they're also going to be the watchdogs and they're going to be the ones analyzing and showing. Hey you use all this wonderful rhetoric about moving towards renewables. Green remember getting the paris agreement action plan on course but the reality is and actually expect some good analysis to come even within the first six months of twenty twenty one. Well i'm looking forward to seeing how everything plays out for sure. I'm excited to see all these new commitments and the time for action is now so hopefully we start to see that happen so moving onto my next question. The tensions resulting from our global interdependence confront us with the need to redefine the global comments. Do you agree that we need a new legal and political theory based on the carman's to make it possible to explain and harmonize these tensions.

"Pimping if you've ever been to medical school a word you've heard before i don't love the word and i'm not sure i love the practice but sometimes i wonder. Is there a better way to assess where our learners stand. This is the knock strenous stories from the world of medicine. I'm emily silverman on today's episode. Latham chap tells us how. She responded when her attending told her that she wasn't cut out to be a doctor. After the story lava talk more about pimping. She said she's had teams who see it. As a way to support learning and growth. And then i've also had the opposite where tend to give an residents. Really use it as a lipsey. Exactly how much you know. And how much i can poke you until you break down. But first here's lava first. Clerkship in medical school was pediatrics. I was fresh out of my step. One study period full of enthusiasm and excitement. Ready to blow everyone away. Become the next os. Lers stimson medical revolutionary. And then the pimping began for those of you. Who aren't in medicine. Pimping is this affectionate term. We use when attending residents grill. The rest of the team usually the medical students with questions about relevant topics. There were at least three of us on the service. All of whom happened to be reserved. People but i probably spoke up. The least we were on rounds on what must have been my fifth day in the attending. Who had yet to acknowledge. My presence directly finally looked at me. What does the pathophysiology behind. This patient's presentation of my voice was barely above a whisper. Yawns past seasons changed the attending grew. Tired of my headlight shaped is and moved on. It's not that i didn't know the answer. Anyone who's experienced the frankly unnecessary rigor of studying for the step. One exam knows that. I likely could have recalled far more of the pathophysiology than the attending had bargained for but it was my first time being directly pimped and i was intimidated for the rest of the clerkship. I didn't really raise my hand or answer. Questions didn't volunteer my opinions on patient plans. I figured my goal wasn't to show off. It was to demonstrate my dedication through the time i spent with my patients. My notes my thorough presentations. So i found myself in clerkship feedback and that same attending turn to me for his assessment. You seem to lack a basic level of confidence if you pursue medicine. It likely won't be in a very competitive specialty. Although i suggest that you pursue a different career path entirely your personality won't serve you here. Delivered in his harsh objective tone and eastern european accent. I felt my breath catch in my chest more with every word. I left his office. Feeling sick i cried that night in being quiet and unassuming. I'd been perceived as lacking confidence.
