"Seven million dollars in just twenty. Seventeen on that. Boeing is is doing a lot of business with africa with specifically the opium. Yeah that's interesting and those planes happen to be the ones that ethiopia's easing smuggle weapons and nutria. Yeah they weren't expected that yup so it comes. Maybe they were dude. Maybe they were right. I mean we had we had Christian sorensen on on about a year ago right and maybe they were part of like. Why won't you know part of what he was talking about. Understanding the the the war industry you know is how closely linked Dis private-sector defense companies Are with you. Know military spending and things like that. And if they're sending shit tons of planes over there and making a lot of money doing so it might make sense to protect their investments in they might want to create a military hegemony in the horn of africa underneath if yo- pa to protect that investment and also to continue supplying them with more product. Right who knows I'm stretching here a little bit. But i'm sure that people listen to this. Show probably follow the thread. Only theo pia is kind of like has been kind of like the. Us's israel on africa kind of like it. You know our enforcement arm there. I mean look. Well i actually wouldn't call that israel. The us is enforcement arm But you know they use. He'll be at the you know the the policeman more art more like the shah of iran used to be So the thing is that you know you put all this together right. And we say were pumping a lot of money into yoga. We have these private investments specifically boeing. They they prop up this wildly successful Airline and that makes ethiopia economically strong. It also gives them as a unintended result or maybe unintended result The capability to ferry these weapons around there easily because they've they've got their logistics on lock So you know in times of crisis like the one that we're in right now. They have the the they have the planes they have the you know the know how they have the logistics to be able to you know swing the tide of war in any direction that they want. Because as you know like wars are one mostly through adjusts right In world war two the the germs probably could have taken you know russia's capital there but but because of logistical issues. They weren't able to write. And you know the story pops up so many times in in almost everywhere that we ever talk about. If you don't have the right logistics you're not gonna win a war And so this kind of brings up a lot of questions about our will. Should we continue providing ethiopia's support if they're breaking aviation roles and if they are aligning themselves with eritrea who you know is For the most part media saying that they're doing atrocities you know so. We're starting to see the picture of this narrative developing and on tuesday A spokesperson Told cnn that they were going to conduct a review of the of ethiopia's eligibility for agoa in two thousand twenty two And that's interesting..

"Pot of delicious conversation with andrew feinstein me. He is a journalist he is. He's an author bestselling author. He is a former anc. Mp who served under nelson mandela. He's an independent. Contribute to double down news. And you know this is a guy who has given evidence who is being brought back to south africa to give evidence against A past president zuma around corruption. I mean this guy has been deeply into an understanding what's been going on in the world around the global arms corruption and how that corruption bleeds out into the corporate world. And and how you. And i may not see directly in our own lives the impact of this but we are all living in the impact of this. And it's it flushes out into global politics that we're all getting sucked into and and we're very much being you know george bush came out and said and you may remember this if you're of a certain age When he when he talked about the wmd's that didn't exist and he came out and said you're either whether you would the terrorists which was a insane conversation And i said that at the time and yet people backed backed W and countries backed him and all that and they went ahead and did that and it became for me. That was the dividing point. We were talking about donald trump being divisive but it really was right there that it was made to the public. You're either on one side or the other and so as a result a lot of our political views on not objective. They are very much black or white. You're with us. you're against us that of mentality. And now we've got what's going on which has been going on for many many years. Let let's be clear with israel and palestine and at the before the end of the last section under was talking about how he was insanely criticized for being a white person supporting the nc and in south africa running as a parliamentary member for the nc and then being criticized as antisemitic for criticizing israel. I want to jump into that. I want to talk about what you're seeing 'cause you let's start with the fact that you lead a human rights group into the west bank so let's stop that. Yeah so just before. I go there. It's when remembering that. Ronald reagan and margaret thatcher both called nelson mandela terrorist will in jail and in fact wanted him executed as they thought it was too dangerous to keep him alive. This is somebody who became one of the world's greatest statesman in only five years in office. So you know we've got to be aware of the nuances as you say and you know saudi arabia who act as the ideological promoters of sometimes the financiers and even the weaponize is of some of these extremist groups but one of the west's closest political and military allies. Unfortunately the world isn't black and white and even in a country like south africa where the issues seem to be black and white. They were important nuances. That were needed to understand. And it's for that reason that we decided to take a group of twenty five south africans. Some of whom were active politically. Many of whom had been active politically dude. During our extraordinary transition from partake to democracy an not an easy our democracy has had very serious challenges but it is exponentially better than anything that came before it So we took this group to hepburn who in the occupied territories. I have been to israel a great deal. My parents would take me. We would visit the adver sham. Which as i mentioned was very important to my mother. My money survived the war because she was hidden a nicole. Saleh three and a half years in occupied vienna itself during the war and whenever there was a gestapo assess raid on the area they lived in she would be rolled up the carpet and the cockpit would be put up against the wall in case the soldiers managed to make their way into the cellar and a few years ago. I took my kids to see. The steel dole withstood the stop when the ss. There are actually bullets in the door around the loch where they tried to shoot it out still today so these issues are really important to me. Some of the delegation jewish south africans The jewish community in south africa which is an incredibly diverse. Like the jewish community everywhere. I have a huge problem when people speak about the jewish community as though we're one homogeneous group because we're like everyone else with very diverse in every way you can possibly think of just to give everybody a clue on this. If you go to tokyo you'll find scenic jews so very religious jews who can't even grow a beard in full gear in full uniform. And if you used to have any theo pia you had the falashas who the orthodox jews of the queen of sheba you know so. We look very diverse. We don't know. Oh we look so jewish. Like when i went to school i went to a secular school. I got beat up every day. Because i was a jew and i transferred to king david when i was eleven years old and i got beat up every day because i was yok because i look jewish so i learned to be tough pretty quick so we all know these silly idea sit. We're in the south african context. I mean it's very interesting but at the time of the struggle against the party the guy who had iran and sees armed wing. Which is called on controversies with spear of the nation was a white jewish south african joe and the guy who prosecuted nelson mandela in his treason trial and asked for the death penalty was also a white jewish south african. So you couldn't have found two people earn roast more polar extremes of the political setup in south africa so we'll take that forget and so it was a very diverse group. We had a couple of muslim members of the delegation Some judges some full ministers and a couple of serving. mp's and a group called breaking the silence in israel took us through hebron and they took us through the main. What have been the main market street. You'll the street and hebron is obviously under occupation and the market was moved off the street. The homes that opened onto the street have all been boarded up With steel fencing. So that they can't use the doors or windows.

You're on the world. i'm marco werman. You're with the world. Thank you for being here for months. Now we've been following the situation in northern ethiopia's tigray region today. The conflict took yet another alarming. Turn the central government abbas now calling on all capable ethiopians to join the military and fight to grind rebels. Alex the wall is following these developments. Closely is the executive director of the world peace foundation and joins us today from london. What is your reaction to the ethiopian. Government calling civilians to fight the to grind. So what does that signal to you. It's a sign of desperation. The to grind defense force has inflicted a succession of military defeats on the ethiopian government. Such that it is in a commanding military position but rather than do what one would hope which is at this point. Seek peak is seeking negotiated settlement. Prime minister i'll be outmanned is doing everything. He can to avoid the inevitable so he is courting full mass mobilization which really has no serious prospect turning the military tied its own for heath europeans to kill each other in larger numbers. Wasn't there a ceasefire in this conflict. There was no she's filed. The government announced a ceasefire when it had been driven out of tyrod but in the next breath the government said we will siege tick ride. We will not let any humanitarian aid in an hunger is the main weapon that they've been using in this war so a so-called ceasefire that did not desist from using starvation as a weapon was not very meaning. Alex do you think there's any appetite ethiopia for full scale conflict. I mean do you expect civilians of military age to actually heed the call of government. Well what has been happening has been some have been heating the core of the government and what is instead of the regular arming fighting against the tig ryan forces that turnaround resistance a whole host of different ethnic militia have been called up but in many cases these ethnic militia have been fighting one another rather than finding the tick ryan resistance. So this really is. I'm afraid is a recipe for the fragmentation that complete collapse of Theo pia as a as a viable political entertain the document calls on ethiopians to fight what referred to as to grind terrorists. Are you concerned that this call to aggression could spread to grant civilians. My worry air would be the large number of crohn's who live in samba. The capital city and and other parts of ethiopia who have been Tenny it by the public statements of the prime minister and other leading officials. most recently. They called the weeds to be uprooted or cancer in the state and these calls for violence against an ethnic group smack of of genocidal incitement. It's very very worrying. This national call document really seems to mark another stunning turnaround for prime minister. Ahmed a man who won the nobel peace prize in two thousand nineteen. Where do you think ethiopia and its leader miscalculated in their dealings with two grinds. I think prime minister amit was always misrepresented. Yes that would genuine democratic reforms that were absolutely necessary when he took office but it all seems to have gone to his head and so i think he grossly overestimated what he could achieve and ended up being really in in a bubble of make believe of alternative reality which has led him into a war leading into authorizing the most terrible atrocities. Finally i just want to follow up. How has prime minister appointed blame on the us. Or problems in ethiopia. What he is saying is that the united states is leading a coalition to misrepresent. What is going on in the country to invent stories about starvation about atrocities about war and to impose a solution that He and by implication the ethiopian people do not like it's frankly an absurd setup claims but it does resonate with a particular brand of his followers who seemed to be committed in a very diehard manner to his very particular vision of the future of ethiopia. Alex walls the executive director of the world peace foundation. He's been speaking with us from london. Thank you very much. You are very welcome.

"So we also we start with the science behind all this. Because we're actually all born compassionate. It's an innate capacity we all have were just not culture aided to it. It's like what i said before you. We're not as mothers. We know the show up. Nurture our children and then six weeks later we go off to work and we. We put them in a bath. It's somebody else can take care of them and you know it's it's not really set up. Our systems are not set up to support us to be as compassionate as we need to be to really support each other to thrive not just as parents but his colleagues and as bosses than as leaders in organization. So we we help people really discover that sense of deep compassion as well as learn how to be vulnerable. Learn how to have difficult. Conversations learn had create cultures. Where all of these things are. Welcome and not just like welcome sometimes but really overtly welcome. We want people to speak up. We want people to be honest. We want people to be transparent. So that if there's a problem we address it right away. We don't like passively aggressively. Put it off to the side and talk about it later. Which is how many cultures operate. You know everything's fine until something blows up but truly the definition of compassion is to not only alleviate the suffering but to alleviate conditions of suffering sa- part of that in our interpretation is really to create cultures that enable people to thrive and flourish in their work in their purpose and in their personal lives. Got josh so when do you is this lake. In the evening time.

So michelle. thank you for being with us today. it would be great if you could provide us with an overview of the conflict in tigray region of ethiopia. And talk about what's led up to it and policy recommendations as you see a what we can be doing here From the us vantage point or will thank you so much for inviting me to join you today and thanks to everyone is taking time to engage with this issue which is wine that genuinely does keep me up at night And i think is is keeping a lot of people so this is a conflict that broke out last november but had frankly been along time coming. The ethiopian state had for a decade been governed by a coalition a coalition of political parties. But there was one group that was kind of first among equals that was dominant in this ruling coalition and that was the tepe elf and the tigrayan people's liberation front at so the to which make up about six percent More or less of ethiopia's population there is a theo. Pia is a federation so there are states demarcated on maps with a different kind of local government and sometimes local defense forces as well. The tigrayans had been kind of dominated. Federally intel really at the rise of the current prime minister. Vip prime minister. Abby op-ed who is not great in he is a from is a romo ethnically although his background is is mixed which is true of many ethiopians and also a mixed religious background. Interestingly his father's slim his mother in ethiopia orthodox christian himself is pentecostal so as president. Excuse me prime minister. Abby a Power kind of reform agenda because indian all observers inside and outside ethiopia agreed at that time the ethiopian state wasn't really working. There was a great deal of popular dissatisfaction with the federal government with the center. A lot of political contestation and so he unveiled a reform agenda much of which was celebrated domestically and internationally designed open up political space in the country but part of the reform involved and eliminating some of the kind of preferences and the the sort of first among equals role of the left. So you have to gray in a senior to grains who had long enjoyed very influential roles in politics but also in the economy in the military Finding at some of that power being stripped away and it set up at a fairly antagonistic relationship now over time at the prime minister's reform agenda stalled in some areas. They're still a great deal of discontent in contestation. any theo. Pia aside from in tigray but things really came to a head with the grants around the question of elections so ethiopia in june just completed elections but those elections had been delayed so be original. Election date was postponed because of cova nineteen and the difficulty of of campaigning of organizing the midst of a pandemic. the grands chose to go ahead with elections in their region in defiance of federal authorities. And this really kind of set up a standoff and then the it was you know both sides were clearly mobilizing forces for actual conflict that the spark that lit the tinder was a preemptive attack on the part of two grey enforces on some federal forces in the area. And then what you had was a a devastatingly costly conflict where you ended up with four different armed groups. A in the mix in tigray and civilians suffering. You had the federal ethiopian forces you had the two grain forces pushing back but aligned with those federal forces and very much complicating the picture you had eritrean forces who crossed the border to to support prime minister abbey in this campaign against a teepee aleph and worryingly you had militia forces from 'em hara another very large ethnic group in the country who claim. Some of the land that on maps had been considered not so this devastating conflict which has been accompanied by clear mass atrocities Use of sexual violence as a weapon. Refugees have been attacked health. Care centers have been deliberately destroyed which is a war crime across have been deliberately destroyed and in fact hundreds of thousands of two grains are now living in fan conditions. people have begun to die Because of famine it's a man made famine in tigray. So you have the conflict you have atrocity crimes and you have this devastating lack of food and access to healthcare. We're almost there. Were almost up to the president but something very interesting happened last month. Where essentially the two grands who a more or less have been fighting as a guerrilla force You know they kind of those who weren't immediately killed or captured kind of melted away regrouped in the mountains at the trains ended up reclaiming a great deal of territory from the federal forces. Federal forces then withdrew from the two grain capital for most of tigray and prime minister. Abby announced a unilateral ceasefire. It didn't really meet it. Didn't look like what ceasefires usually look like right with arrangements for communitarian access etcetera but there was this kind of Inflection point in the conflict outwear appear the to grandparents had gained an upper hand. The ethiopian federal forces withdrew with rain did not accept at a ceasefire unconditionally. They wanted the or trans out. They wanted those emperor militia out. Essentially the ceasefire is gone now. A fighting has resumed and has in fact spilled out of teague right into a neighboring region..

So I kind of went to the Dallas Morning news the next day to see their coverage because Dealey Plaza was packed. I've never seen a group I've seen were like people that like one of, you know, open carry in Texas. I was there for that protests and there were about I don't know. And 15 people there, and one older gentleman had an American flag on one side, his rifle slung on another, and I just enjoyed the irony of a man with slinging a rifle in Dealey Plaza. In protest. Yeah, I'm thinking maybe that should happen someplace else given the nature of Dealey Plaza, But last week I mean, you get close to Dealey Plaza. You had to stop for people going through the crosswalk in all that cause by the way they were not watching turns out out of nowhere. What? In the Dallas Morning News one in Star Telegram. I went to the TV stations, See if anybody covered it. It was a pro Palestinian rally in downtown Dallas. And it was just breathtaking. How many people showed up for 25 minutes. Get through downtown Dallas. Get on Interstate 30 to go home. I did not find a word of it the media anywhere. And so I left the link. The video of it on the front page My website inside automotive dot com Now I understand a couple days ago. There was a pro Israel pro Palestinian protest up on Preston Road, I think in north Dallas, and that did get some coverage, But maybe because one side was on this way and the other side But I've never seen a protest of that size, get no news coverage. Whatsoever. But in any case, I want you to know that one week it was the warranty Gray, which is Ethiopia, and I was not aware of that. Last week, it was a pro Palestinian deal down in Dealey Plaza. Which simply shock me because of the size of it. But again, there's I didn't see any screaming, yelling carrying on. I did not run over anybody in my car in either case. Even though I was not expecting come on protesters, so I know you can civilly get through it. However, in the future if they'd actually when it says Don't walk across a crosswalk it be nice. If you'd let the cars go But even then Just blew me away. There was no coverage of this whatsoever. Whether you agree with it or not on DNI people wouldn't It's still news. Let's go to niece are in Dallas. Haney. Sorry. I hope I'm saying that right? Yes. Yes, idea, right. The and I just want to make a comment. You said earlier that coroner have it. Opened up Texas and so called them increase in Texas. But you know, Garner said, 100% be open, but I think this will force Commission and now open state comptroller's office not completely open. They just opened. Looks like the open only to collect money. They're not for you Open it to today, but I know off. Yeah, I was talking about the fact that where he said the mask mandates started getting dropped. I think he said that we're gonna do it in schools in the future. But basically he kind of just re opened the state for the amount of people who can have in bars and restaurants. And everybody was saying that we're gonna have happened What happened out in California and the cases were suddenly going to skyrocket again, and none of that happened. You're talking about individual offices down in Austin. So we'll have several officers in the say G'day, but but then also Dallas. Carly, Uh, I think the mayor of Dallas quality or judge, uh, you know, they'll keep that in place. That may help to Yeah, I don't think anybody's kept anything in place because for the most part, I think a lot of people have been ignoring Ah lot of the rules since day one again When this started, I said, Mark my words. It's gonna take four or five years. Once this is long over before anybody puts together all the facts and finally writes up what really took place. But that's all right. I have looked at this in the long run, and I see places that Nobody would follow a mask rule and they didn't have a big outbreak. In other places. They follow the mass grueling did social distance and there were huge outbreaks. I read where if you were six ft away, you were safe from it being in the air. And as you know, about a month ago, a study came out and said Crap, You could be 30 ft. Away. If somebody sneezes, you can pick it up. So that is the confusion has been great, but before it even started, it's like 9 11. We never really knew the whole story for how many years after that. Yeah, Even though we knew the basics. We knew the basics, but it took years to assemble all the fax and give us a cohesive narrative. It was correct about it, and that's what we've done again. So I'm glad it's coming to an end. I'm glad is coming to an end. But to this moment, even though we know the wrong numbers We're not quite sure where everybody had it. Where was the biggest fatalities? We're not really sure of anything other than it was bad. And I'm a guy that likes numbers. Tell me who? What? Where, When and how and if we knew that a front I think we would have been a lot better off the whole time. Yeah, that is true. Yeah, that's true. There you go. Have a good weekend. Okay. Thank you. You could.

The conflict has continued to escalate over the past two weeks and thousands have already fled the region to sudan here to help us understand. The context in the conflict is samuel to chew a local journalists in about theo. Pia with the reporter samuel. Welcome back to the takeaway. Now you also. Joining us is yinka at a go. K the africa editor for quartz inca. Welcome back to the show. Thank you so samuel. Let's start with you. Tell us about the tensions that led to the violence between ethiopian. Prime minister abi and leaders of the semi-autonomous tigray region when it began two weeks ago When ethiopia accused the teepee had left government that has been taken out now because of the new administration has been appointed by the minister when he accused them Let's say later admitted to attacking a military base in to gripe and kidding soldiers and that's what Made them According to them attack The region in order to take out the leadership that they've Accused of a criminal acts human rights abuses in the past. You know see know that. Tps left was in government for the last twenty seven years. before i became to power. They've been having this conflicts Since a year ago accused of all kinds of stuff including holding an election When the housing federation and are told them not to and which they won by one hundred percent reminding money the opens of the election of two thousand seven when they were in government and i'd be settled by which they also claimed to have one by one hundred percent so it's a mixture of all kinds of things that pushed the federal government to act. And that's where we are right now now. Prime minister abbey was appointed in twenty eighteen. And he was seen as a reformer who was Releasing political prisoners from from jail but about a year and about a year ago. He was awarded the nobel peace prize for forging peace with neighboring eritrea. After decades of conflict. What were the hopes for his administration. And how have things actually played out. Well the hopes were. He would lead if european which is as you know. Africa's second most populous country down the road of democracy because he was seen as this This reformer and those are lots of excitement He gets the nobel peace prize and governments around the world needs around the world So the patrimony back and everyone's excited about it Because if he has so much. Potential is being the fastest growing country. One of the houses four fastest growing countries in the world. Not just in africa Over the last decade But you know at the if you're has a very What we call a tense federation of all of different regions of of semi-autonomous nations. If you like and it's been very tricky to hold it together while also sort of dangling this promise of democracy instead. It's almost being the reverse if you speak to If europeans now they feel that they're besse lot of displeasure across the different regions. Not just integrate. Even among his own people be romo's amarah. There are all these concerns where the locals feel. They're not been given the the the freedom that and that's reaching democracy that's Seemed very likely the salt samuel human rights observers are concerned that the conflict that's taking place in ethiopia wool further destabilize the horn of africa What is the logic here. In targeting era tra But you know you have to know your listeners. Need to know that the a retrial was part of ethiopia at one point and it was a tps left government that gives them the right of referendum to have their own nation but it was up to five years that the teepee had left government was provoked by air tria to get into conflict that killed at least eighteen thousand People from both sides since then. Eritrea ritchie has always taken no alpha ethiopia's interest or ethiopia's willingness to fight with them or against them so or at least eighteen years. You know the ethiopian government then. Eprdf government agreed on jay getting involved inclined to have some kind of agreement store. Once the peace agreement made its own decision. It was a eprdf government which is a tps of government decided to disagree with it and walk away. So you have. The peace agreement favored air but once it was rendered it was eprdf government that walked away so since then. It's i support. The longtime president has looked down on yoga as an enemy. If yoga press eight. But if you are for the ep lab so it doesn't mateen when abi came to power and decided to have some kind of peace with their trio that tps government was in disagreement because they felt they weren't parts of The engagement and that might be why the first this agreement was keep your leadership. Push them who just leave. Disabled rank go through the state of tonight and decided to wage essence of war with the federal government. That they felt was no longer in their interest in our desirable inc. What is this conflict. Mean for the larger refugee crisis in ethiopia. This is a really troubling time. For the horn of africa region Which has seen some peace in recent years but as this conflict which is like rights at the borders of three countries that you have the furiously area and then sudan where refugees awfully Off the bombini.

Us government Mike compare is you know.

Heard that people often have this honeymoon period when they get home and so when she and rests. Got Home. I was expecting that we did not have that you know. From the time she came home. We were faced with really challenging behaviors things we've never expected. You know she had been so. Her brain had been so impacted by trauma that she saw the entire. World is threatening and everybody. All of her siblings were competition to her, and so she had to be dominant. You know because that's how she knew. That's how you get the food.

And some of that came out looking like aggression, which was very scary back then you know it was such a shock in our family, and not all sudden have. Aggression so. You know I think because we were so well prepared with studied got we went to a special training course just for people adopting from Ethiopia. We, my background was in mental health. We've been for twenty years. So even though it was challenging I think we felt very optimistic that you know. Yeah, of course, it's going to be hard. This little girl has been through so much. Of course, it's going to be hard. But. It's all going to be okay because we know what to do, and it's just GonNa take time. Well even with time passing actually things continued to get worse. They didn't resolve. They didn't get better. And we were really in desperate need of help.

It makes me choke up right now, just thinking about it and actually in the room with that book case right now in all of those books, next member does kneeling on the floor, and in looking through trying to find anything that would help me. Because I was desperate, and our whole life had begun to revolve around rages, and very out of control, behavior and aggression. And it was. Very overwhelming so sometime during that time you know way way back before it even brought our kids home, I had started a blog. One thankful mom dot com and I'd started writing there. and. I had begun to get a little more honest about what was going on. Because at first I didn't want to. I didn't want to discourage anybody because I knew I was so sure things were just going to get better that I didn't I figured. It wouldn't really benefit anyone for me to write about how hard things were. But when I started to get honest. That's when people really started to come and read in. You know that's where we used to interact back. In the day, we used to actually interact on our blogs and the comments right yeah. Yeah, we didn't have the facebook groups and the things that we have now. So one of my readers. And I would love to find out who that was someday. She told me about this woman in Dr. Karyn Purvis and her book, the Connected Child I hadn't heard of Doctor Purvis I hadn't heard of the book, but it was quite new back then. So I got the book. And I, read it and. There were a lot of things in there. There was a lot ardy new, but what I didn't have before reading. It was really concrete. Tools you know to us when I was actually interacting in parenting, my child and so. That was really really helpful. It began to sort of opened my mind to this new way of looking at the challenges and thinking about the the what these behaviors were actually saying. You know the need behind the behavior and all of that. But what was even better than reading the Connected Child? Was the same person gave me some links to some videos of Carter Purvis speaking, and they were from an old conference. They weren't anything big. They weren't professionally done. But when I heard her speak. That's when I knew. That she. Had something incredible to offer me because. Hearing her talk about how she worked with children that was so powerful. You know and I remember crying. Watching her speak thinking. She has hoped for my kits. And if she could believe. The my kids could hill than I would hold onto that hope.

So it's a real treat to be able to interview and before we discuss all the amazing professional adventurous. You've had. I would love to begin by discussing your journey. How did you find yourself in the influential position. You are today Again thank you. For having me pleasure. Specially someone from from harvard an opportunity over the years to come and speak the h. b. s. So again any connection to harvard. It's a easier and to respond to question. I- influences a relative thing. I mean if you are. President of the united states are really really inflation and then you know others in their own fields from people today routine to other so i want to influence in context. I will got the to get on his. What i find is being up with the ability to make a difference so not contact to. The question is so i am. An african immigrant came to the united states. Very young with my family. Originally from ethiopia from abc. Open american and people my age of the chinese early age. We've fleeing the opium which is chaotic country. Which was governed time by communist regime. Does that says on debilitating an entire generation so neutrally but to see the olympia. So we moved to the less Educated the united states. That's one of the thinks when people talk about you know value immigrants to the. Us we like to lose people like us. Africa and others who agreed to the us and contributed made significant meaningful partition united states and beyond so the name fluence but every success thing came shops gluttony. Because the us gave me an opportunity to be educated to hold got some professional positions and big times. Like a peanut you she for the and obviously from that. I'm with now which is a global equity until It's the opportunity that we were given by the american and the hard work. I mean i think we think honesty hard work also gave me an opportunity to to show my capabilities and a lot of immigrants who than the same thing so they gave us opportunities to succeed. The more we succeeded as i said within the context of the definition of influence as you defy you asked. I like to think wind. Up monthly awning missions around the world from the us to latin america and brazil. Brazil tina for a number of years and of course. So that's kind of how. I would describe how i managed to get this unique opportunity. This wonderful opportunities. African immigrants in the united states turned up in what i would consider to be relatively influence position. So that's kind of long winded. We've actually questioned. Yeah no we. We enjoy long winded answers here on the cadillacs and we do love them. It provides a lot of context. And i think that especially when people are beginning in their careers or just simply looking for inspiration. It's always helpful to know exactly how someone got to or they got and i think your comment of the hard work and your immigrant story to the united states. It's really powerful and as you are someone who has lived all over the world you mentioned brazil but you also lived in argentina. Saudi arabia announced. Theo pia i think that in our current times it's really important to be a global citizen. That is someone who keeps up with what's happening in the world but it's also able to connect with a variety of people around multiple cultures. And so my next question to you is from your experience as an ex pat. How did you keep balance in your life as you were just an incredibly busy man during that time. And what did you. What would you say is the most important lesson you've learned from being a global citizen balanced extinction perspective. You can't just be a track. One track minded person and expect to have a successful life. I suppose you can sacrifice everything just to be successful and professionally but if you leave your family and your family lives friendships and others. I think at the end of the day when she reached that whatever that is you may philanthropy so the balanced word that you use. That's very important. Keep ballot work as work. Yes whereas you won't be so you're employed by someone else you're going to my especially in these very high charged competitive global companies need to work hard. That's there's no question about it to sacrifice a lot of kids birthdays or whatever but the day you gotta find the wipe out otherwise. These personal extensions. If we're going to santiago cumulated on well you can have acquired all the material assets and may have gotten on publicity not in other accolades and awards. But if you don't have the balance the same. Why did i work so hard. Where's the contribution made to society whereas contribution i made to my family to too. She don't balance it. Then i think the antonyms or the non I will be there so this balanced is important now. The next the next look for many years and it was a wonderful experience. As i said i came here as a teenager here in the united states. I'm sticking to you now today from my office. My officer washington jr but going overseas for the first time i next it opened up my eyes to a lot a lot of opportunities out there and remember him leaving we talk. Next chose a little ways over twenty years ago when working emerging markets was not. Something that people talk about. You know so today. You might seem obvious to go work in africa or latin america or asia as emergent economies so for for someone like you to take the risk. 'cause successful here in us professionally speaking andy larger trump's when affirm. But to say. I want to work. Where emerging markets at the time seemed like a risky thing today. Of course you know. A lot of people want to succeed globally. Actually see those kinds of wants to -tunities were working in china or in africa or the middle east actress sought after opportunities. But it's in my case. It opened up my eyes living in argentina. What can the companies not. An american company used insane brazil. It showed me it leveraging. Of course the american expertise but adopting to the state of economic neurath understanding the cultural differences appreciating respecting it. That helped me a lot especially later on when i start working and even lesser early stage emerged economies in africa. I think time gone directly from the less to africa.

"theo pia" Discussed on The Catalyst
"Kind of long winded. We've actually questioned. Yeah no we. We enjoy long winded answers here on the cadillacs and we do love them. It provides a lot of context. And i think that especially when people are beginning in their careers or just simply looking for inspiration. It's always helpful to know exactly how someone got to or they got and i think your comment of the hard work and your immigrant story to the united states. It's really powerful and as you are someone who has lived all over the world you mentioned brazil but you also lived in argentina. Saudi arabia announced. Theo pia i think that in our current times it's really important to be a global citizen. That is someone who keeps up with what's happening in the world but it's also able to connect with a variety of people around multiple cultures. And so my next question to you is from your experience as an ex pat. How did you keep balance in your life as you were just an incredibly busy man during that time. And what did you. What would you say is the most important lesson you've learned from being a global citizen balanced extinction perspective. You can't just be a track. One track minded person and expect to have a successful life. I suppose you can sacrifice everything just to be successful and professionally but if you leave your family and your family lives friendships and others. I think at the end of the day when she reached that whatever that is you may philanthropy so the balanced word that you use. That's very important. Keep ballot work as work. Yes whereas you won't be so you're employed by someone else you're going to my especially in these very high charged competitive global companies need to work hard. That's there's no question about it to sacrifice a lot of kids birthdays or whatever.

The Federal Aviation Administration is going to meet with airlines and pilots to talk about the troubled Boeing, seven thirty seven max airplanes, the planes are still grounded worldwide after crashes in Indonesia and THEO Pia killed almost three hundred and fifty people as NPR's Russell Lewis reports these talks come as Boeing says it's close to finishing a software update. The may allow the jets to start flying again when the seven thirty seven max entered service in twenty seventeen it had a new safety feature. The plane would sense if it was close to entering an era dynamic stall enforced the jets nose down. But it would do it without any commands from the pilots. That software called 'em Cass played a part in the two accidents. Dennis tater flies, the seven thirty seven for American Airlines and his spokesman of the Allied Pilots Association. We believe it was manageable. But you had to know what was going on. But we're learning more since the the opionion crash about just how. How aggressive this system was pilots of both doomed airplanes struggled to pull up before. Crashing in a simulated flight of a different version of the seven thirty seven a crew demonstrates how difficult it is to control an aircraft when it wants to fly pitched down. Three hundred bucks. Now binding. Struggling to keep this aircraft flying. The pilots in this simulation. Wrestle the plane for several minutes before they eventually gained control. Boeing says it has reprogrammed software on the seven thirty seven max to prevent it from using eroneous dated a trigger the M S anti stall system. Here's CEO Dennis Muilenburg speaking yesterday, we're taking a comprehensive disciplined approach and taking the time to make sure that we get it right Mullen. Berg says the company's test pilots have flown ninety six flights with this. Updated software and more are scheduled in the next few weeks yet, we know we can always be better. And these recent accidents have intensified our commitment to continuous improvement as we design build and support the safest airplanes in the sky that may be a long process near Jane teaches mechanical engineering at Purdue University. She's not involved with a software redesign, but says Boeing's challenges it needs to re engineer it systems. So pilots can have confidence and trust in the plains automation. We have to do a better and better job of than figuring out how to design those systems in a new way. So that they don't just technically correct things. But that they are also for lack of better word than being transparent to the human. And that's a piece that I think this is certainly a strong signal that there's a lot more that we have to do the FAA's meeting today is with executives and pilots of the three US airlines that fly the seven thirty seven max southwest United and American the agency says it wants to hear their concerns before it decides.

American Airlines cuts first-quarter revenue guidance on 737 Max troubles
"American Airlines is cutting a key revenue estimate, partly because of canceled flights from the grounding of its Boeing seven thirty seven max jets. It said Tuesday that canceled twelve hundred flights during the quarter that ended March thirty first because regulators grounded it's twenty four max planes over the weekend.

Boeing, Federal Aviation Administration And Indonesia discussed on Post Reports
"Our hearts, go out to all of those who lost loved ones to their friends to the families in both the opium Andy lion. Airlines crashes that involved the seven thirty seven max aircraft to terrible terrible thing. Boeing is an incredible company. They are working very very hard right now. The US has now joined the UK, Canada, Mexico, China and dozens of other countries in grounding, Boeing, seven thirty seven max, eight aircraft. This comes after Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed everyone on board. It was the second time in six months that this model of seven thirty seven has crashed shortly after takeoff now crash. Investigators are recent figure out what went wrong and on Wednesday. The Federal Aviation Administration announced that at least one critical clue has been found. They reported that they have found something in the wreckage. We don't know what it is yet. But they think that it indicate some commonality between the lion airplane crash that killed hundred and eighty nine people in Indonesia, the invoked over and the THEO pian airlines crash that killed one hundred fifty seven just this Sunday. Erin, Greg is a business reporter for the post. This is something that basically anybody who is associated with Boeing had been saying, oh my God. We hope there's nothing that ties these two together, which would basically implicate Boeing and potential tissues. Now, we know there is something tying together. Whether it's Boeing's fault yet to be determined by. This is a very serious crisis for the company because the commonality between that lion air crash, and this THEO ping airlines crash is the fact that they were using the same new model of plane. That's right. This is seven thirty seven max eight it's basically the newest version of a long standing seven thirty seven that's been used since the sixties the idea that a brand new plane in Indonesia was literally brand new any THEO Pia had been fight for just a couple of months would have potential equipment issues is very worrying. I it suggests there's something wrong with the plane and not with the people who were maintaining it. So you've been reporting on the concerns about this model of airplane and. And one of the things that you've reported is that there was a meeting after that line aircrash back in last November that meeting was between Boeing and pilot's union. Tell me more about that meeting. So according to the pilots, basically, it was sort of a coming together where Boeing was basically saying, look, we wanna give you all the information that we have about what's in the system. The pilots who were in that meeting that I spoke with said that before that they were very very upset with Boeing this all sort of hurdled into public view win Boeing disclosed that they had put a new system in the seven thirty seven max eight called em- casts. Basically, it's an automated system that certain dangerous situations can nudge the nose of the plane downward. There is a way to override it is just that pilots were concerned that they had not been properly trained on how to do. So. And they were worried that that may have played a role in the Indonesian crash. If you're a pilot, you're very very. You worried about the idea that you might not have control of the plane in a critical moment. So this disclosure, basically through the American pilot unions into a little bit of a frenzy the two airlines in the US that have these planes or south west in American Airlines. So they immediately basically raised their voices and said, we're not okay with this. Why was this not included in training? A pilot talked to yesterday told me that the training for this new plan consisted of a one hour long. Ipad course that was how they were trained on the new plane. What do you know about what was discussed at that meeting? The pilots basically came to that meeting and said here are few things that we would like to be changed three of them were very specific technical aspects of how they would they think that the planes should be changed for some foremost that when the system kicks in it shouldn't nudge, the plane's nose all the way down word if it's designed to prevent a stall. But there I was just this used to be included in training. They ask for flight, simulators, they. I still don't have those. According to the pilots I'm talking to that's been in the works for several months now. I don't know how long it takes to make a new flight simulator. But it's been four months, and they still don't have them. It wasn't until after the second crash that Boeing in the FAA came out and said, okay, we are going to update the system on the max eight that Rivera specific software changes that were announced Monday evening, and basically at the same time in a little bit of an about face. They also said we're going to add new training here. There's going to be new crew training for this system after initially thinking, basically, well, the max eight isn't that different from the older seven thirty sevens. We don't need to do much retraining there. So the pilots are making the case that if a update and Boeing subsequent announcement really came from the discussions that started in that meeting. So these pilots are saying they're concerned that they weren't being trained properly on this new plane software whose job is it to enforce that or to make sure. That pilots are properly trained. So one point that Boeing will probably make here is that what they did as far as putting the training together and setting up the software for the new plane that was all approved by the FAA. I'm not aware of any evidence that suggests that Boeing ignored any government policies in doing what it did. I think next the magnifying last is going to be on the FAA for why they certify the plane the way they did. They did Serena there's not actually in administrator in charge of the FAA there's an acting administrator, but there's no permanent person in the top job. Do you think that has anything to do with the fact that there has been so much criticism of the FAA's response to all of this? I would say there's some possibility that that has played a role in their response to the crash, but the other thing that is important to remember is that this plane has been dreamed up for years. This is something that Boeing has been preparing for very very long time. It's not the case that this process would have happened within the last year or so so I would say that the fact that there's no confirmed fade minister it might account for any slowness on the part of a to respond after lion air. But I think it would be highly unlikely that that contributed to how the certification or the training happened on the seven thirty seven, Maxine. Erin.

Airlines crash site are now in France for review the National Transportation Safety board is sending agents to aid with the investigation there. It could take as long as a month to recover that data.
