"And just die the way people died in ordinary life. He wanted to die a heroic death if he died at all and what he did die eventually is probably the indian dot. Yes he didn't get to go off to france but he did die of a heart attack and it came right after his sixtieth birthday and it was about the time that his doctor said you know you might die by that time. we'll bill. What do you hope people when they when they finish your book what are they. What do you like walk away with thinking or chewing on after they finish your book that there is a place for a grand vision of the world in causing people to attempt. Great things and roosevelt is one of the most alcohol in laudably ambitious figures to hold the white house. He set high standards for himself and he came. It did pretty well in living up to them at to some degree. Those high standards were part of this unrealistic view of the world s romantic view of the world. So they can. Even an unrealistic view of the world can have worthy consequences but roselle also was very shrewd. Wow he was president and keeping his romanticism in check. And this is if there's one thing to keep straight about. Roosevelt roosevelt vigil was separable from roosevelt. The president a greater sense than is often the case. So i said that roosevelt before he being at present was as warmonger. Roosevelt had several opportunities while he was president to push the united states into war but he refused so roosevelt should that the president is this different unnecessarily different person but he has a different function than an individual so before indians and now front. From the standpoint of the biographer. The presidency is the boring part of roosevelt's life because presidents do what presidents do before roosevelt was president. Is this really colorful character in. And you can see his personal trajectory rising. After he's president you can see the trajectory falling. But he's still is very interesting. Figure very does dramatic stuff president. He's kind of boring. But roosevelt understood the purpose for that. What you don't want is somebody who as president is trying to play out these inner struggles these provisions in all of this other stuff so roosevelt is a really good example of how you can be this very interesting character you can really be a character and still be a really good president so in that regard roosevelt is kind of a model of haddock cheap. The personal separate from the professional to the advantage about will build. This has been a great conversation. Where can people go to learn more about the book and the rest of your work. Well the book is available everywhere. Books are sold. Book was published in the nineteen nineties but is in most bookstores. If you go there and certainly it's available on amazon. Tr the last romantic and next to that book. You might find some other biographies that. I've written fantastic will brands..
"theodore roosevelt" Discussed on The Art of Manliness
"He had a good time like he genuinely enjoyed being president. There's some presidents that they described like i hated. It was like the worst job ever had like taft. I don't think really enjoyed being president. What happened after his presidency. Like how did his romanticism. Keep pushing him when he didn't have anything to do. So part of roosevelt's problem in this regard was that he became president too soon. He became president. We was forty one point. And that's that's young for such responsibility. Of course what it meant was that he's gonna be fifty when he the white house. So what's he gonna do for his second act and he. He thought okay well. He handpicked his successor. William howard taft and so. He thought that taft saw ida i with him on important issues. So okay good. I got my guy in there so now i'm gonna go and give them a chance to form his own presidency to make his reputation off. He went to africa. Which is of course where somebody like. Theodore roosevelt would go he. He basically hunted all the big game. There was in north america. So where's even bigger. Am elephants in africa. So off he went to africa. It was a safari that it always wanted to go on and now he had a chance and he was able to do it under the auspices of science roosevelt with a conservationist now to modern sensibilities. That might seem weird. Roosevelt slaughtered more animals in his life than all but probably a handful of other people in his age. So what does that have to do with conservation. Well in fact. Roosevelt helped found one of the first and most important conservation groups the boone and crockett club america and they conserve natural resources. So they have something to hunt in the future. They didn't want to kill all the animals and so it wasn't uncommon for roosevelt to go off to africa and shoot elephants and rhinos and and other big game for the purposes of science and conservation because he nature that the the elephants were sent back to the museum of natural history and stopped and put on display there and so people say that's an elephant. Looks like and this of course before television or anything like that and so yes he could do it for science. You could do it for conservation but he could also do it because there that there was still in roosevelt that each that okay. I have to prove myself. This has become part result so he had to keep proving himself. He went off to africa and he proved himself by standing there in front of a charging elephant and killing it not himself. Getting killed. not flinching. That was good but then he came back to america. He finally came as a year in africa nearly and had to come back. What's he gonna do now. And some people who were unsatisfied. With the way. Mckinley at handled the president's she began whispering. Roosevelt sierra. You know he's just not doing what you thought he should. He's betraying you and didn't require too much whispering to get roosevelt to say you know what i need to take over again. In those days there was not a constitutional third terms and technically would have been searching anyway because he he had inherited the first term but in any event he decides to run again now. This was perhaps roosevelt at his least admirable because he he talked himself into believing that his country needed him. The progressive movement needed him really. It was roosevelt. Needed something to do. He needed a challenge and the challenge was to run for president as a third party candidate. Third parties had never done well in american politics. Roosevelt did better than any third party candidate before or after fail. He didn't get elected and he destroyed the the elective political career. William howard taft. He split the republican party costing taft himself both the election which went to a democrat. Woodrow wilson so that's what he did and then having lost that when he got to do something else now he's still still a relatively young man. He's in his early fifties. And what's he gonna do. Well he decides to go on a trip of exploration into amazon yet. He's going to follow this river from its headwaters. People knew about the headwaters and they sort of knew what they thought were. Where the part of the stream but the party in between was unknown as it was called the river of doubt and roosevelt was going to join this expedition. Go down and explore this river after hunting big game in africa or high. Are you gonna top that the explorer type the the one who discovers great things will result inevitably discovered anything. But this is his chance. Now when you get to this point in roosevelt's life yet start to think that there must be something more about this and one of the things that i. At any rate concluded about roosevelt is his activism his activities his inability to slow down his inability to just relax and absorb puts around him. This derived from. I think from a certain kind of background. Well in our day we call it depression that he was dealing with a he. Depression ran in the roosevelt family. There were suicides in the family. Roosevelt had a relatively young age quoted. The roman writer horace. Who said black care can never catch a rider who gallops fast enough and it seemed to me that roosevelt was doing that galloping his whole life and so we always had to find something else there was another thing that just before he was married just before he married alice. Lee became alice lee. Roosevelt he underwent physical exam. This was not in those as in especially for somebody who had had this background. Illness like roosevelt and as roosevelt told later the doctor heard an irregularity in his heartbeat. There was a heart murmur. Our neighbor them or something and the doctor suggested that roosevelt ought to take life easy because he if he strained himself too much. And i just fall over dead. But roosevelt concluded now. Now i'm not gonna that way. I'm living my life to the fullest. And if i die before they sexy so bid so in going to the amazon one can look at roosevelt's actions and think okay. He doesn't know what to do with himself. There's really no act after the presidency in american life that would suit roosevelt so firstly went to africa. If he had been killed by a charging elephant he would have been okay with that. And i think that part of thought of okay if i die of fever in the jungles of amazonia. I'm okay with that. What a way to go how in fact he nearly did die a fever in the amazon but he survived. You came out of that. They still has to figure out what to do but he got out just in time for world war one to break out and he decides yes. That's what i'm gonna do. I'm gonna reprieve my actions in the spanish american but this time on a bigger scale so instead of raising regimen of volunteers he proposes to president woodrow wilson to raise two divisions volunteers and he goes to the white house and says this is what i wanna do. And wilson says now and for roosevelt in fact at one point roosevelt said. Aren't you kind of old. Somebody toll roads are kind of old to be volunteering to go off and fight in france but rose said i cannot think of a better epitaph than theodore. Roosevelt died on the battlefield in france. So it's almost as though that romantic streak in roosevelt was stronger than ever. He was going to go down to a hero's death. The last thing roosevelt wanted was to get old and.

"And now back to the show so his first wife dies allah and he had this romantic ideal of a love. That your first wife dies you don't remarry the and he told his sister that i'm not going to remarry well kuenz up remarrying. And it was edith. Carrow his childhood friend and he even wrote letters to his sister. You know how. I feel about getting remarried. But i feel right thing to do and it's sort of like this whirlwind wedding kind of under the radar then it becomes this family man desert anything we can learn about. Tr's romanticism through as family life. Well we see with roosevelt. Is this sort of full blown. Romanticism of his boyhood. That continually runs up against reality because romanticism is at its heart an unrealistic view of the world. Now we all have certain unrealistic views of the world and they have to be reconciled with reality at times and roosevelt was able to retain some of these but when he rian countered edith carrow. He realized that well he was attracted to her and as you suggest he felt guilty about it because there you're only supposed to have one true love those those romantic knights of the round table and all this other stuff. You know this one true love for each of us and he. He talked about how he didn't know what he would do. Should he be fortunate enough to get to heaven after he died because he'd have to explain to alice that he had been unfaithful to her after her. Death by marrying edith. Anyway but he does and they have children and the kids. The kids aren't really part of roosevelt's romantic vision but one of the things they do. Is they make roosevelt. Really attractive to voters. And because okay. Here's this family man. And he's young. Roosevelt was remarkably young in all of this stuff. He's gonna be when he does become president. He'll be the youngest president in american history till then and since then but the fact that he had kids it demonstrated a kind of vitality often. The gorilla of someone is measured by okay. Did you have kids. And he had bunches of kids he had six kids and and the kids were all running around and so while he was in politics even when he got to the white house he was the first president. I think since lincoln who had young kids in the white house and this was this was fantastic a lot of people because they tended to look on politicians as he's old guys in stuffy suits and roosevelt wasn't stuffy and had children the running around. The children are doing what kids did. So some of roosevelt's romantic view. Part of it makes him appealing to the american public because they have a romantic view to but other things that made him appealing. We're just the fact that he seemed to be this honest guy and he had kids and you paid attention to the kids and he used to play with the kids and he would let the kids have pets and sometimes they would bring horses into the white house. There's one case where the brought a small horse in the elevator of the white house. The kids were up to what kids do. And so roosevelt became an in decades later when john kennedy became president and his two kids. They made kennedy and jackie his wife all add more appealing based on what cute kids this and they said the same thing about theodore roosevelt and his children so we talked about after the. He got involved in politics early on in his young adult life. Flood it for a little bit and got back in and he was primarily involved in new york politics but eventually he gets new national party catches they see dea roosevelt like his guys got potential and he finds himself assistant secretary of the navy and he's in a position now where he's able to have some amount of influence on world affairs and it allows him and he kind of the way you described it allows him to start making up the deficiency that his dad had of not fighting and more he tells about his involvement is assistant secretary of navy and how that eventually maeve lead up to the involvement of him charging up san juan hill on the spanish american war. Sure so roosevelt was really talented. Guy and people recognize the talent in roosevelt but he was basically in the wrong political party because he was of a reformist frame of mind a time when the republican party was growing more conservative by the year by the decade so he was an odd fit and he was also he was also this. I'll at least before he goes off to war. He was somebody who couldn't get elected outside the narrow circle so rosental wanted to get back into politics but the republican bosses didn't like it and so they wouldn't give him the nomination so what he did was he went back into politics. But as an pointed official rather than an elected official he couldn't get elected but he could get a point and he was good at what he did so he was a civil service commissioner than he was on the new york police board and while he was in those positions he would campaign on behalf of the republican candidates for elective office. He campaign and eighteen. Ninety six for william mckinley and was a stout campaigner for mckinley mckinley. One he was in line to get a job. This way. people get appointed jobs in national administrations and roosevelt. He dreamed dreamed. Oh maybe i'll be secretary of state. He was very interested in foreign affairs but that was above his grade but instead he got the job of assistant navy secretary now. This was assistant heights. Sound relatively small potatoes but for roosevelt wasn't in part because the cabinet secretary. His boss was somebody who wasn't particularly interested in running the office. And so he let the daytime running the office go to roosevelt but also because roosevelt had grand ideas about what the united states ought to be doing in the world. Roosevelt looked upon the united states as a bigger version of himself and just as he looked for a chance to prove himself to prove himself strong and brave and upright and all this he looked for opportunities for the united states to prove its health strong and brave and upright and when a rebellion against spanish colonial rule broke out in cuba. Eighteen ninety five roosevelt was all for american intervention and he kept as assistant navy secretary. He kept pushing william mckinley. His boss presents saying you got to intervene. You've got intervene and finally not by himself but in conjunction with other people roosevelt talk mckinley into declaring war against spain into intervening in the cuban uprising against spain and felt well a lot of people thought the united states ought to do it to relieve the suffering of the cuban people. Roosevelt didn't really care that much about pork. Cuban people he cared about was the opportunity for the united states to to step up and play the role..

Pablo Escobar's Hippos Are Out of Control
"A couple of years ago. I read a novella called river of teeth by sarah gaily. The concept of the story is based on a real world event. That almost happened smack. In the early twentieth century a bill was proposed in the us house of representatives and informally supported by theodore roosevelt. The us should import hippopotamuses from africa to the swamp lands of the gulf coast and breed them as an alternative meat source for americans basically starting a new industry in the us of hill. Ranching as you know this proposal never came to be but gala novella now collected into a volume with a sequel and some other stories under the title american hippo imagines magic in alternative history where this did happen only set fifty years earlier. You get kind of gulf coast cowboys on hippos tape story. It's great loved it. I highly recommend it. Or if you just wanna dig more into the facts. I put link in the show notes to a long read on the history of the hippo proposal by john. Mouallem will the reason i bring. This up is because americans in the early twentieth century. Were not the only ones with dreams of becoming hbo ranchers decades later pablo escobar would also get into the hippo game importing four of them to live on his estate in columbia and now forty some years later they have bread and multiplied and are spreading all over the wetlands of north bogo. Talk causing mayhem. Consternation and some real concerns for the region. Scientists say this now invasive species is competing with native wildlife polluting local waterways attacking humans and they project will grow in number two fifteen hundred hippos by twenty forty at that point the scientists say they will be nearly impossible to control their environmental impacts will be irreversible but never mind controlling fifteen hundred hippos. How do you control a dozen or even just one. That's not like you can just google it you know. In colombian officials are not hippopotamus experts and there are unique challenges levied upon this specific situation. I quoting the washington post in their natural habitat. Hippos spend the long dry season crowded into waterways shrunk to puddles. They're vulnerable to disease and predation not to mention one. Another as bad tempers but tropical columbia is hippo paradise. Environmental agency researcher david vary lopez said rain is abundant food is plentiful and they're no carnivores large enough to pose a threat. The animals spend five hours a day grazing on grasses and the rest of their time basking in the cool waters of the magdalena and surrounding lakes and quotes report from columbia not being the hippos natural habitat having in effect on the hippos behavior it also affects the surrounding communities impression of the hippos. The officials tasked with dismantling escobar's estate back in the ninety s. Weren't sure what to do with the one male and three female hippos so they just let them roam instead of sending them to a zoo with his other animals and mostly they did that because the hippos were massive and aggressive no one really wanted to approach them so we'll get the harm be and letting them go well. Kenyans and other african communities with native hippo populations could tell you a whole heck of a lot. You've got hippos from each sex so they can breathe for one and they're also hugely destructive to the environment into other animals. Hippos killed more humans each year than other large mammal. But when you don't grow up around hippos you don't necessarily know that so the hippos have become something of a mascot and columbia. According again gift shops in nearby puerto trail info sell hippo keychains and t shirts at the amusement park that was built on the site of escobar's former pleasure palace. Visitors can tour the lake where several dozen hippos now live occasionally one will plot into a nearby community looking as blase as a shopper on his way to the grocery store the hippopotamuses. The town pets resident claudia. Patricia camacho told the local news in two thousand eighteen. You could say that he now takes to the streets as if it were his own and quote but the hippos aren't as friendly as they may look on t shirts. They terrorize farms and hurt residents at times. The government has ordered the hippos to be shot on sight but there's been pushback from animal rights organizations and local residents so then they tried putting the hippos in a pin but and this is one of the mini quotes from this article. That honestly sounds straight hundred jurassic park. Etcheverry said i didn't know they could jump hikes so then they tried big pens with high enough walls that the hippos can't jump onto them. They've also been focused on trying to prevent them from breeding by cuisine. And then castrating the males. They've been through a steep hippo anatomy learning curve on that front though. Not even being sure where to look. For the animals external reproductive organs turns out. It's a bit complicated. They finally got a system of castration down. But it's costly and complicated so they can only do about one year but the estimates are that the population grows ten percent a year and apart from the bodily harm humans and the destruction of farms the hippos as they multiply host of other problems quoting again. A twenty twenty study of hippo inhabited lakes found that nutrients from the animal's feces were fuelling huge. Plumes of area an algae. These intern reduced the oxygen content of the water. Making it toxic to fish.

Are we just going to have to get used to dealing with outbreaks?
"So one of the things that Australia has really relied on throughout the hall coronavirus pandemic sci-fi is lockdown as a way of getting a handle on what's happening and keeping cases to a minimum. We've seen that really happening in Victoria and a few days ago a special envoy from the World Health Organization was talking about how lockdowns shouldn't be the only sort of tool. That countries used to Cape a handle on the coronavirus and I think that some people in Victoria have sort of used those comments from the WHO as a reason to sort of say, we should be lifting Victoria's lockdown now but it's a bit more nuanced than that. Isn't it? This nuanced? We went into lockdown in March largely to stop the growing pandemic but also to allow the infrastructure for contracting testing to get into place, which is what the WHO, who say. There was an outbreak in Victoria now that I break in Victoria would have killed many many more people had they not to lockdown but in part the outbreak was due to a failure in contracting and testing at that time. So in many ways, they fulfilled whol criteria for lockdown, which is time to get your contact tracing and testing into shape, and in fact, through the second wave in. Victoria that's indeed what they've done some situation where Victoria New South. Wales are pretty XY Pixie in terms of unknown cases number of cases a day. Sorry Pixie. What the hell does that mean some kind of Scottish thing I grew up with meeting. You know roughly equal fair fair enough trying to get a new phrase into the Australian dictionary from Scotland. Anyway. Back to the point the point being. That, you said whereas in Victoria roughly equal and the argument is probably quite well made that there's not a lot of reason why you shouldn't have the restrictions roughly the same in both states the problem of Victoria is you don't WanNa let the break off suddenly because people will just start turning up on masters include a beach which means crowding into trams, etc, etc. so you've got up. Do fairly slowly and carefully, but the endpoint quite soon could be a similar situation to New South. Wales. But we've got to get used to and it's not a trivial phrase a new covid normal. We promised a few days ago that we were going to stop comparing new, south Wales and Victoria, but let's just do it one more time new south. Wales does seem to have like you say. Exceed Pixie level of similar levels virus to what we're seeing in Victoria or at least the confirmed cases that are coming through, and they don't have as many restrictions on them, and we do know as well that it's probably at least a year before we're going to have any kind of vaccine available to that sort of like what we're thinking of as being a trigger for going back to what we used to have as a normal life is what's happening in New South. Wales. Perhaps, a model for what Ustralia could look like over the next year. Well, I think West Australians queenslanders south. Australians would bridal a that because they've got almost nothing happening and they're saying, well, why should we have? Wills has belichick focused on new, south Wales and Victoria for the moment. But I think it is something that queenslanders and others need to be cognizant off is this something we should get used to what we're talking about here for people who don't live in New South Wales is an outbreak from GP clinic now, getting used to is different from getting complacent. So yes I think you gotta get used to the fact that there will be small outbreaks but what we should not do tolerate them and so they're. They're not to be tolerated and our behavior needs to change in the short to medium term which is. Continuing careful social distancing. I believe in new. South. Wales. It should be mandatory mask in public transport just as an extra layer of security. You don't seem to be going that way and really getting on top of outbreaks and people being prepared to get tested if symptoms are in areas where there are outbreaks and if we can do that, then we can cope with these outbreaks but we can't just say. Another outbreak. Let's move on. It's another outbreak. Oh, this could be the moment where this could be the hotel quarantine equivalent moment that we hadn't. In Victoria, whereas if we ignore it is going to get out of control. So get used to not really be able to deal with yes. But just quickly on that, we're talking about being able to be responsive to outbreaks but we see in Shepperton in regional Victoria, they had a the little outbreak happening there people have told to go on to get tested they've gone to go and get tested. They've done what's been asked but they haven't been. Able to access testing this huge queues, how are we going to be out of style up to these? Well, that's for health departments to sort out, but they've got to be ready for particularly in rural and regional areas because this is something that you just need one truck driver to have arrived in a place in spread it and we've already seen somebody hiding away in trying to get into Queensland you just need one person and to move into our networks and off. So everywhere it's got to be ready and you to be ready for scale up and a plan for scale up so. Somebody throws a switch and people start with doing and they set up to prop up clinics, and within a few hours you've got it all going and that's what people have got to plan for and the best thing that can happen is you never have to institute your emergency response, but your emergency response has got to be really Schmidt and if he wants to know. More about how we've tooled up for contact tracing, how good it is, they listen to yesterday's Khurana cast with Ryan McIntyre where we covered a lot of these issues and that chat with Rhino was so interesting and there was stuff in there that we couldn't fit into yesterday's show. So we thought we'd bring it back again in prerecorded form to answer a question from Ingrid. Where Ingrid's ask if a person who has the virus uses a toilet does the next person inhale the virus spray in the toilet is flushed with the lead up and is the virus in urine faeces? Yum. This is just the sort of question that croquettes listeners love energy with toilets. Let's have a listen to yesterday's comments by Rhino McIntyre, which weren't in the krona cast. So this is a bonus we're talking about. And toilets on aeroplanes. We do know that there is a risk with closed transport vehicles with its planes buses. There's been a number of outbreaks already described on airplanes on buses and other vehicles including A. A navy ship whether it was a very, very high tech right? the Theodore Roosevelt in the US. The risk isn't just from Aerosol, droplets spread I mean we know that the highest risk isn't people sitting closest to the infected person and that's been born out in previous studies with diseases like to book your license and Maizels. But the toilet is also respected. There was one study where they were known infected people on board everybody was wearing a mosque and one of the people who became infected took the mosque off in the toilet. So we know that flushing the toilet can create aerosolize -ation. Probably. Less. So on an airplane toilet because of the nature of those toilets that don't have water swilling around, but they still would be rissole generation from the flushing action. So, the hall toilet is probably highly contaminated. So even if you wash your hands afterwards, you could breathe in contaminated aerosols than when you come out even just touching the door handle would be a risk. So that's that's probably one of the real hot spots on an airplane. That was Professor Rhino McIntyre who is professor of global biosecurity at Curbing University of New South Wales
"theodore roosevelt" Discussed on Today in True Crime
"It was called that evening but Theodore Roosevelt supporters didn't mind a little chill. They were just excited to see their candidate up-close bundled in thick coats. They waited patiently outside the Gill Patrick Hotel on Third Street eager for a glimpse of the former president. Though. The weather was frosty that night it was nothing compared to the bitter fight for the US presidency with just weeks until the election tensions were running high but Roosevelt paid little attention to the drama of the campaign and focused instead on shoring up his support wherever he went large crowds. Cheered him on fifty-three-year-old Roosevelt had already served two terms as president. But this time he faced an uphill climb. To the white. House, as a third party candidate, he didn't have the infrastructure of the Republican or Democratic parties. So his frequent stops around the country were vital part of his plan. He would need every single vote if he was to win his way back to the Oval Office, which is probably why on October fourteenth he stopped for a moment to greet the supporters who waited outside his Milwaukee Hotel. After a few moments shaking hands Roosevelt climbed into his open top car. He took off his hat and waved at the crowd eliciting a cheer that nearly muffled the sound of a gunshot from just a few feet away thirty six year old John Shrank pulled revolver and fired a round into the candidates chest. As Roosevelt's Naga for restrained shrank the crowd surrounding him turned vicious just as they were poised to exact vengeance on the would be assassin Roosevelt called out for restraint between strained breaths asked for shrank to be brought forward to him. Roosevelt demanded his attacker explain himself but only received a steely silence in reply seeing that he wouldn't get a straight answer Roosevelt ordered the shooter be turned over to the police only then did he reach inside his coat to feel where the bullet him? He felt a hole, the size of a small coin in his shirt and told an. He Pink Me. He then coughed three times into his hand to make sure there was no blood satisfied that the bullet hadn't punctured his lung. He ordered his driver to take into the Milwaukee Auditorium injured or not he was determined to give his speech. Minutes later Roosevelt time stage and ask for silence from the crowd as the audience quieted down. Roosevelt announced. I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot. He then pulled from his coat pocket, a fifty page speech that was folded in half right through the centre was the hole through which the bullet traveled the thick speech as well as his woollen coat had helped slow the bullet down. Waving the papers in the Air Roosevelt said I was going to make a long speech and it probably saved me from the bullet going into my heart. So I cannot make very long speech, but I will try my best. The fifty three year old former president proceeded to speak for eighty four minutes while he talked. He usually glared at the AIDS who were standing by in case he collapsed seemingly annoyed that they thought a single bullet could stop him. Roosevelt was willing to do whatever it took to get back in the White House even if it killed him. Up Next will examine Roosevelt's nineteen twelve presidential campaign and the reason John Shrank wanted him dead.

"During and after the siege of Santiago one of the last major operations of the Spanish American war. Us troops stationed in Santiago. Cuba were beset by malaria and yellow fever. Thousands of men were sick and dying but the McKinley administration planned to keep the troops in Cuba until peace talks were over and until they were healthy. According to some sources there was a real fear that six soldiers would come back to the states and start a yellow fever epidemic. But the situation was growing untenable and near the end of July General William shafter commander of the Fifth Corps gathered all of his commanders to discuss it. Roosevelt later recalled in his autobiography that. Although I had command of a brigade I was only a colonel and so I did not intend to attend. But General informed me that I was particularly wanted and accordingly. I went as Edmund Morris wrote in the rise of Theodore Roosevelt's all agreed that it was critical and that the war department's apparent unwillingness to evacuate. The army was inexcusable. Somebody must write a formal letter stating that. In the unanimous opinion of the Fifth Corps staff further stay in Cuba would be to the absolute object. Lewis ruin of the fighting forces. None of the regular officers wanted to risk his career by writing such a letter and suddenly the reason. Roosevelt's presence had been requested became clear. He was a volunteer. Who had quit his post as assistant secretary of the navy in order to fight and he intended to go right back to being a civilian. After the war he had much less to lose by offending his former boss. President William McKinley McKinley Secretary of war Russell Alger to incur. The hostility of the war department would not make any difference me whereas it would be destructive to the men in the regular Army Roosevelt later wrote. I thought this true and said I would write a letter or make a statement which could then be published Theodore. Roosevelt obviously wasn't afraid to speak up. Theodore. Roosevelt wasn't afraid of anything except inaction as Alfred. Henry Lewis would write a Roosevelt in nineteen ten. Mr Roosevelt has often shown that it is better to do the wrong thing than do nothing at all. The best thing is to do the right thing. The next best is to do the wrong thing. And the worst of all things is to stand perfectly still. We'll be right back in an effort to spur the McKinley administration to Action and bring American troops back to the states before they were decimated by yellow. Fever plan was hatched. Roosevelt would write an initial letter addressed general. Which would then be followed by a round robin letter? A method typically used to conceal the identity of the ringleaders of a movement which would be signed by Roosevelt and the other commanders. Then they would leak those letters to the press in his letter. Roosevelt wrote that to keep us here. In the opinion of every officer commanding a division or brigade will simply involve the destruction of thousands. There is no possible reason for not shipping practically the entire command north at once. All of us are certain that as soon the authorities of Washington fully appreciate the condition of the army. We shall be sent home. Roosevelt noted that in the Cavalry Division. At least there were no true cases of yellow fever but there were fifteen hundred cases of malarial fever. Hardly man has yet died from it he wrote but the whole command is so weakened and shattered as to be ripe for dying like rotten sheep when a real yellow fever epidemic instead of a fake epidemic. Like the present one strikes us as it is bound to do if we stay here at the height of sickness season. August and the beginning of September corentin against the malarial. Fever is much like quarantining against the toothache. If we are kept here it will in all human possibility mean and appalling. Disaster for the surgeons here estimate that over. Half the army of Kerr during the sickly season will die. The men were unable to penetrate into the interior and moving them around the island. Roosevelt said only sick in them. Further to delay sending the men home was not only terrible from the standpoint of the individual lives lost Roosevelt wrote but it means ruined from the standpoint of military efficiency of the flower of the American army for the great bulk of the regulars are here with you. He closed by saying that. I write only because I cannot see our men who have fought so bravely who have endured extreme hardship and danger so uncomplaining Louis Goto destruction without striving so far as lies in me to avert a doom is fearful as it is unnecessary undeserved Roosevelt's fellow commanders. Then signed their letter which noted that they were all in agreement that the army must be moved at once or Perish. Adding as the army can be safely moved to now. The persons responsible for preventing such a move will be responsible for the unnecessary loss of many thousands of lives are. Opinions are the result of careful personal observation and there are also based on the unanimous opinion of our medical officers with the army who understand the situation absolutely. There are different accounts of what happened next. But according to Roosevelt he wrote his letter and an Associated Press reporter tagged along when he went to give it to general shafter who promptly push it into the hands of the reporter. As Roosevelt later recalled. I presented the letter to General shafter. Who waited away and said I don't want to take it. Do whatever you wish with it. I however insisted on handing it to him whereupon he shoved it toward the correspondent of the Associated. Press who took hold of it and I released my hold. Something similar happened with a round robin and when the letters the press they caused a sensation the McKinley administration was incensed by the letters. According history and Louis L Gould. The day after the letters were published. Mckinley wrote a letter to shafter. Denounced th round robin as most unfortunate from every point of view adding the publication of the letter makes the situation one of great difficulty. No soldier reading that report ordered to go to San Diego but will feel that. He is marching to certain death. According to Morris some within the administration even suggested court-martialing Roosevelt for his letter the administration had reason to be rotated on August. Third the day before the round robin hit the press. Algebra Haddish in order for the army to be moved back to the United States which meant that many newspapers printed Roosevelt's letter right next to an announcement that the troops were being brought back to the public. It looked the Roosevelt's letter and the Round Robin had forced the McKinley administration to act which wasn't the case by August seventh. The first troops were heading back to the states to quarantine in Montauk on Long Island New York. Nothing ever came of the suggestion to Court Martial Roosevelt. Instead Secretary Algebra published a private letter in which tier bragged about the rough riders performance. Saying they were as good as any regulars and three times as good as any state troops while Algebra might have hoped that the letter would threaten tears. Chances of getting the governorship of New York. His tactic failed. Roosevelt returned to war hero. He became governor and then vice president and then president. He didn't however get the one thing he desperately wanted the medal of honor. Those simple leave. He was denied the honor because of the publicity stunt he had pulled as Mitchell Yochelson writes for the National Archives pro magazine. There's no evidence for that exactly. Why the BREXIT Board Denied Roosevelt? The award is not officially documented. Yochelson rights certainly. No evidence exists to support the contention. That Algeria held a grudge over the round. Robin Affair or Roosevelt's testimony to the Congressional Committee on the contrary letters from the Word Department to Roosevelt indicate that they were more than willing to assist him in getting the Medal of honor. One can only assume that the BREXIT board came to the conclusion that the Roosevelt contact in Cuba was quite admirable. He was not worthy of a medal of honor later. Roosevelt would write that. I was recommended for it by my superior officers in the campaign but I was not awarded it and frankly looking back at it now. I feel that the board which declined to a word. It took exactly the right position around a century after his experiences in Cuba tier would finally be awarded the Medal of Honor. Back to the present day. We've talked before on this podcast about how it's impossible to know how tr would have reacted to situations today in this case however one of Roosevelt's descendants has a different opinion in a piece for the New York Times to Roosevelt tr. Grandson and chairman of the Theodore Roosevelt Institute at Long Island University wrote about Captain Crozier and the situation on the USS Theodore Roosevelt as a descendant of the namesake of Captain Crozier's former command. I often wonder in situations like this. What Theodore Roosevelt would have done tweet? Roosevelt wrote in this case. Though I know exactly what he would have done in eighteen ninety eight. He found himself in almost the exact same position. In this era when so many seem to place expediency over honor it is heartening that so many others are showing great courage some even risking their lives. Theodore Roosevelt in his time chose the honorable course. Hampton crozier has done the same before we go.

Supremacist viewpoints Which is a bummer. Just been grappling with that and making it making the podcast. It's been fascinating to learn about those sides of him as well in a way surprising and tragic because he was this moral righteous person and he was able to foresee things that culturally of the time. Were a step away from others. You know in terms of monopolies and trusts and corruption and so on that he he saw morally what was right so somewhat surprising and sad that he couldn't take his intelligence and moral stance as it were do the right thing in his presidency. There was a huge uptick in violence against African Americans. And you know he was against segregation. He did not believe. In limiting voting rights he spoke out against lynching but politically. He did very little to help anyone. He did forge a relationship with booker. T. Washington actually invited him to have dinner at the White House which caused huge controversy and they had a working relationship but in terms of policy. He didn't do very much to help. That's a sad. That's a bummer. Now he did a lot of good things but not everything but on that side note. I think we'll say goodbye to tr. Well that wraps things up for this episode as huge.

"Get to Kettle Hill. And he's waiting for orders waiting for orders just like chomping at the bit and then when the orders finally come he like throws himself on horseback which is so reckless and just charges up the hill Firing and he actually Kills a man and it's you know it's just like a wild wildly reckless thing that he does in the things that motivated him he. He definitely did acted many risky things. The first of many many whiskey things where you would say. Wow I you know. When he was in the Dakota territory's he was like of a deputy sheriff or something and and he came home from hunting one day to discover that these bandits had stolen his boat And it was the only boat on the little Missouri River. You know he was like I'm going after these dangerous bandits like he said to his ranch hands. Build me another boat which you know if if someone build you another bone. He's got the boat. Why do you need to go out your boat but it was? It was like a moral thing for him so they go in. They capture these guys who are very dangerous guys. And then he walks them overland like many many miles to justice. Which is it was I mean. And it's the badlands like and they are bad they're tough and he just was like nope morally. I'm doing this thing but it's such a silly risk. Being moral is really was the beginning of his career right and he really made it essentially politically by going after the police and mob boss guys and trying to remove people who are accepting graft and and doing things that were you know the way things worked a lot of the way things work but underground criminality and Which made him Not Well liked amongst a lot of people. Reform is the thing. It's the through line through his whole political career. Everything else he did and he did a ton of other things but like reform was was the biggest thing that he championed and so from his early early days in assemblyman like the first forty eight hours. He introduced four reform bills or something like that. You know through his time as police commissioner when he was following the letter of the law. And you know firing police chiefs who were enabling prostitution and You know Enforcing The Sunday excise law which made him very unpopular with many immigrants. You know and then he achieves a like a national political standing after the charge up Kettle Hill. You know he becomes this national figure and so the Republican Party says let's make him governor of New York and why they ever thought that he would be more controllable as governor of New York than he had been previously. I have no idea why but so he was in there for a little bit and then they were like we need to get this guy out of here. So let's kick him upstairs make vice president. He won't his political career will die there because you know the vice president of your head was just a figurehead position at that time And then McKinley is assassinated. He becomes president. And what's he do? He takes on reform. Let's pause for a break here when we get back. We'll see how teddy bears as the president of the states.

"From a very young age and then when he is like seven or eight years old he goes to the market in New York and he sees a dead seal and it just like blows his mind. He needs to know everything about it. He wants to bring it back. Creates his own Museum of Natural History. And so this seal kind of opens up a Pandora's box where he's like bringing home dead things living things you know. He's asking the cook to boil a woodchuck so he can articulate the skeleton. He's got a snapping turtle tied to the legs of the sink and his parents encouraged him in this. I mean they were very supportive. I think his mother was like you stink but Otherwise they were like you should pursue this. This is a passion for you. A real scientific curiosity. It's kind of like a kiss through a screen door. Like he could look at these dead things but he couldn't go out and participate. He could see those things but also not very well because he was very nearsighted which they didn't realize until he was about a teenager the same year he gets glasses and a gun. The world just opened up in a way that it never had before. I'm glad he got the glasses before the gun for sure. And so you know he goes out and he starts hunting and he's very into it. I asked some experts. How do we square these two things? We know him as a conservation president. He cared a lot about nature but he also went out and he shot a lot of things and someone said to me. That's a very twenty first century attitude and it is because back in that day if you wanted to understand animals you kind of had to kill them and open them up and what made them tick so there was that part of it but then there was also the big game hunting aspect where he just wanted to collect specimens of things. Let's talk about his early. Love Life who he had a childhood friend. Edith when does friendship and and you know romantic longing become a thing Somewhere along the line is certainly seems like that was the case for for Teddy. Yeah they had Or or people posit any way that they had a sort of an early courtship and that he may have even proposed to her and she turned him down. They don't ever really talk about it ever so we don't know for sure if that's what happened. But they do make reference to a fight that they had early on but they find each other later after his first marriage. It's interesting because his sophomore year his father dies. He is just plunged into college now college he goes to Harvard which is not shocking. Does appear to be a very bright man and he as you point out. He read a tremendous amount. A crazy amount like a book day or something he actually had to cram in like a year and a half according to David McCullough anyway normally took people three years to do and then he took his entrance exams and he made it in any performed very well. He performed very very well and he was involved in like a million clubs while he was there too. He was in the Glee Club but he didn't saying he was in the pudding in the. I don't know all the Harvard clubs is also courting the ladies and you know taking nine classes this semester and It's just like a super busy guy and still reading a book day. This is some of the earlier information that we know that makes one wonder somebody who has that big personality clearly. He was known on campus for having super big personality. And as you said super-busy how does the sky managed to do all that he did in the hours? That there aren't a day we already have the first inklings or wondering about whether he had some sort of mood issue that today we would call bipolar disorder. Let's take a quick break here.

"Roosevelt was the twenty six president of the United States. He was also a Republican leader was progressive era policies and original conservationists and naturalists yet a warrant easiest often ranked as amongst the top five presidents of all time and also admired for his larger than life personality. Tr was a noted colorful figure who truly advanced progressive policy in this country. Welcome to personality. I'm Dr Gail Saltz and joining me. Today is Aaron McCarthy Editor in Chief of mental floss and host of the podcast history versus which just finished its first season all about the Roosevelt. So he thought who better to bring on to discuss tr. It's hard to come up with a a leader President who had a bigger personality historically speaking than Teddy Roosevelt. Very true born in Eighteen fifty-eight a hometown boy. Yes New Yorker we do and we do know. New Yorkers do tend to have big personalities but even amongst New Yorkers Teddy was big so let's talk about his early life. He had a southern Belle. Mom Yes he did and his Father was a republican so that led to some interesting times during the civil war a nation divided and a house divided. He was very into the war playing battling war with his siblings all the time he was the second child with the first son and so as soon as he was born he kind of became the center of the family's world and he was a sick kid. This turns out to be a very important point in terms of his character formation. Which and we know. Today that early chronic illness for child really is very formative particularly in terms of how they deal with it how they develop coping skills and manage to manage it versus how traumatic an impact. It has on their childhood. He had childhood asthma and hadn't pretty severe asthma. E couldn't even like blow out a candle like he was really compromise and that compromise is ability be physically active in the way the boys usually would. Let's talk about Theodore's parents reaction essentially to his asthma. Yeah so I mean they were obviously an affluent family they had means and so he had his first asthma attack at age. Three and it was really bad. I mean asthma can still be fatal today but it was even more so he would sleep sitting up. There are these stories of his father kind of carrying him up and down the hallway trying to get him to breathe they would put him in the carriage and ride him at top speed up and down Broadway trying to force air into his lungs and then they did other things which you know. We look on horror with today. They made him smoke cigars. They made him drink black coffee. You know and never smoked so we for good reason. Yeah Yeah we'll introduce the scars. Childhood would be a good deterrent. I would assume but it must have been even scarier to be doing things that were supposedly supposed to help. They were supposedly the medical treatment of the time and to actually not have them help at all because of course we understand today. They nothing useful any of these things but his father said to him. You have to make yourself. You have to become strong in order to come out this so even as a child that is essentially what Theodore did. It's really funny. His father took him to the Doctor. And the doctor said he's got a week heart and not enough space in his ribcage or something so he really needs to open that up and so his father says to him. You know you have the mind but not the body and without the body of the mind can't go as far as it should so you have to build your body according to career into your sister. Tr said through gritted teeth. I will build my body and then they build this gym for him on the Piazza and he's just out there like lifting weights. The neighborhood looked a lot different back then than it than it does today. But there's a beautiful garden out in the back so he would have been working out and listening to like mooing cows and and peacocks screaming. They make terrible noises and so yeah he worked OUT SOLIDLY FOR TWO YEARS. And then there's another kind of a formative experience for him. He has an asthma attack in his father. Sends him up to Moosehead Lake. Which is I think in Maine and in the coach on the way there he runs into these two boys who are about his age and instead of becoming friends with him. They bully him. They beat him up. He feels so ashamed by that. You know he's like I'm building my body you know. He was writing down his his measurements. All the Reps. He was doing stuff in his diary. Early evidence of some obsessive nece. Let's say For sure yeah that often when someone is fairly obsessional you do see it in childhood. How does he when that incident he was in his early teens? Okay so a very identity forming time and fourteen also a big bullying. I'm yeah as we continue to see today and we know the negative impacts of bullying really sure emotionally driving low self esteem for for the for the target. But that's not what happened to him. No he actually said I made up my mind that I must tried to learn so that I would not again be put in such a helpless position. So then he took up boxing. His coach was a prizefighter. And what they discovered is that he could really take a hit and he would just keep popping backup. Hit him again and he just pop back up so he had a sturdiness. Starting Yeah that he demonstrated about him and even as a boy. Tr shows that you know he has to struggle with this asthma but he's going to build himself and then he gets knocked down but he gets back up interesting that he already at this young age. He's playing war games. And he is overcoming. Actually his asthma. And certain kind of way you could certainly posit the desire to have war or to have fighting as the constructed obstacle which you show your victory in essentially would be very compelling For someone who is already started doing that with his traumas as a young person Yeah and I mean. He actually thought that war was a good thing. You know just a little bit of war kept you in touch with your manliness. And and what? He called these barbarian virtues and he sort of felt like you had to keep fighting to stay on top and so he was really really into war. How do aggressive fighters? Do with those impulses and urges when they also want to be morally right or morally good if they're shaped in a way that maybe their moral compass and you know they might become criminals actually really do do fighting in a way that you know. Obviously we don't approve of society but in his case he's a Roosevelt and raised by a family. That maybe might makes right by. Right is important exactly. I mean his father. They have this glass importing business and his father was very wealthy and was a big believer in philanthropy. So the American Museum of Natural History. His father was a part of founding the Metropolitan Museum of art. His father was a part of founding and then he also supported many many charities including the News Boys Lodging House and he actually take his kids with him to these houses so they could see there was a bit of. I can never pronounce it. Noblesse Obe leauge at work there and so he really believed that it was part of his role as a privileged person to help people who are less privileged than him and his father was a proponent of muscular Christianity which is basically like strong body strong morals and so you know he was constantly sort of drilling right and wrong Into his son I think mostly for better but also tr comes out of that with sort of a very black and white view of what's right and what's wrong and not a lot of gray area. His father took him hunting. Hunting was a big part of his upbringing. It was part of being a sportsman but it was more than that and this goes on to be a very formative time for him. I mean it actually even goes back further than that because he was so sickly as a kid that he didn't spend a ton of time outside what he did was he sat in his house and he read and he read a lot of books about natural history even before he could read he would drag the books alongside him and beg anybody who could read to read them to him. There are these stories of him dragging along David Livingstone's book which was like apparently than he was just dragging it along and begging people to read the book to him which is really cute. But you know so. He had this obsession with nature.

In the meantime hot can expect to be busy as consumers including me keep ordering stuff online for the world. I'm Kelly Casula us in Seoul for more than a dozen years. The US has carried out hundreds of air strikes in Somalia. The target the militant group al-shabaab. There was one incident in an airstrike two years ago where the. Us admitted to killing civilians so called collateral damage but Amnesty International now says it has evidence of two more airstrikes this year. Also killed civilians. Daphne Eviatar is Amnesty International's director of security with human rights. So those two other airstrikes happened. Back in February Daphne. According to your research what happened was a target and how many civilians were caught up in it so first of all. It's hard to know who the target was. Because africom won't say who the target was but we can tell you who was killed on. February second the family of five or having dinner in the city of Khalib in Somalia's Middle Juba region and a warhead struck their home and then eighteen year old woman. Omar Abu car was killed instantly vic strike also injured two of her younger sisters and their grandmother. Now we don't know who the target of that was the second strike that we documented was February. Twenty four th and that held a fifty three year old man who is a banana farmer and an office manager for the local telecom company. He had a wife and eight children. What's odd in that case in particular is that he had worked previously for international humanitarian organizations in the region and he'd been arrested several times by al-shabaab which makes it really unlikely that he was actually a member of al-shabaab. So the problem is that they don't identify who the targets are except for al-shabaab or affiliates. Shebab and then they declare everyone who has been killed as having been a member of Al Shabaab and so our researchers have gone in and interviewed people on the ground and found out who was the person killed and sometimes it is the member al-shabaab sometimes it wasn't we've investigated eight strikes over the last couple of years and found twenty. One civilians killed the. Us government has only acknowledged two of them. So have you. Amnesty International presented those findings to the Pentagon. What's been the reaction? Yes repeatedly so this is I think the third we're presenting them. Evidence of very specific civilians were killed by. Us strikes the reaction is generally will investigate. And get back to you and then when they have gotten back to us. It's basically a blanket responsive. We've determined that those were members of all Shebab those religions admit killings. But there's no evidence presented to back that up and there's no response to the fact that we have done all these interviews that just gets dismissed. Is there any way for families in Somalia to get reparations or even just an acknowledgement from the US military? That someone was killed. Well there could be but there hasn't been so that's another real concern. We have even in the one case and the one strike which resulted in two civilian casualties that the US government has admitted to. They have not even contacted the family. They have not provided any sort of reparations AFRICOM the US Africa Command has pledged to begin publicly reporting civilian casualties from The military operations in Somalia and elsewhere in Africa by the end of this month. What is your reaction to this? Is it enough? It's a good start other. Us military commands do report. This and so it's good. That AFRICOM will start reporting but the real problem is what are they going to report if they're doing shoddy investigations or investigation that rely purely on secret intelligence sources. That haven't been verified. The most reports won't be very helpful. What they really need to do is meaningful investigations the. Us government isn't going to know the impact of its actions there if it doesn't even know who it's actually killing and what role they played in the community. Daphne Avatar is Amnesty International's director of security with human rights. Thank you for being with us. Thank you for having me. A young woman who was the first reported corona virus case in Kenya says she's recovered by Kenya's official statistics. Fewer than one hundred people have contracted the disease. They're only one person has died. Still countries across Africa are taking drastic action to prevent the spread of cove in nineteen. The World Health Organization is calling countries to protect the poorest communities. But in a place like Kenya some worry that government policies are causing more harm than the pandemic itself. The world's Halima condie reports on a typical day residents in the Nairobi neighbourhood of Kariobangi. Wake up before dawn. It's a low income area meaning. Most homes don't have running water and families often share a single room after getting their children. Ready for school board crowded buses to go to work and other parts of the city. But these days many people don't have jobs to go to being laid off some going for without pay sum deducted deducted pay says Stefanos Hanno. He's a human rights defender at the Kariobangi Social Justice Center. He's been going door to door to educate his community about how to protect themselves from Corona virus but Odierno says their biggest concern is about losing their jobs and putting food on the table. Most people in the neighborhood are casual day. Laborers like food vendors or security guards. These are the people being hurt. I in the corona virus outbreak so far the government has imposed a countrywide curfew. And unfortunately for those who still have jobs. There's an order for public vehicles called Matatu touts to operate at sixty percent capacity will be the prices of the fair example going from Connecticut. Oh Bondage town being double craze see. Now it's both pricey and difficult for people to get to and from work and home. Oh Tanno says people in communities like Hayes are trying their best to follow the new rules. He's noticed fewer people are having large gatherings and that more shops are putting out soap and water for people to wash their hands but in Kariobangi easy access to water as a privilege. Not everyone can afford in fact. The local government already rations water and poor areas commander who Tuesday. There's a lot but from Wednesday to Sunday. He's very close. Their Water Organization is appealing to local officials to keep the water on every day of the week and to address other issues like unemployment but so far poor communities have.

"It. People and there is no sanitation. There's no soap and there is no water so when I was speaking to them about social tensing it felt like an obscene statement to make when there is so much poverty and people do not have even their basic meals. In fact I met this migrant laborer. Who worked in a little factory? His daily worker and there are eight people in the family and it's been two days since he hasn't gone to work and he does not know what the next day works for him. His wife is on dialysis and he cannot decode hospital because the hospitals are preoccupied occupied with them go with foster to patients. So I mean it's it's it's really miserable sight to witness because these up people unlike the privileged like the middle class of the country. Who have stopped did refrigerators. With Fudan and sanitizers. These people do not know where their next meal is going to come from and some of the neighbors that I met divet crying and they were choking and they said all we want to do is just to go back to our respective hometowns and if anybody can just you know. Put us in a train or a bus. We just want to see our families. Let's hear that Clip Gothic Margaret Bust. I think just the sound of his voice captures the dilemma. He finds himself in what? What was he saying? It was a sobering moment because he said all he wants to do is just go back home. If the government can really help him go back home. He was stalling when I met him and simulcast would packets to give them and they said well. You have given us food packets right now. But what do we do about our next meal? It was? It was really traumatizing to witness data and this is not just you know despite locality at this point of time as I talked about thousands and thousands of laborers who are desperate to go back on because there is no work in the cities. The Prime Minister of the country has initiated these relief funds. But I don't know when. Will that really reach these people because as it stands right now the relief is not reaching them. The only leave that is reaching dam is from NGOs and Volunteers who are working on the ground. So these day laborers are hoping they can pull resources with families and villages So basically they can eat but the families and villages are also under the lockdown so realistically if these workers in the cities make it to the villages. What can they actually expect? Honestly when I spoke to Dan district they just wanted to be with their families. If the DI- did not want to be alone because right now grants they are to this no shortens that. They're going to get their next meal the next day and they're locked down. There are ten labours lockdown in one room. I mean it really seems like a brutal way to treat the poor and vulnerable. What kind of pushback is the government getting? All channels are news. Media's visuals of these farmers and laborers who have been working so of course the countries angry but you know this. Entire incident sheds light on the clear divide between the rich and the poor. The rich and the elite in this country read a week ago standing in their balconies and clapping and cheering for health workers. Which is a great thing. So there's a clear clear. Structural divide between the rich and the poor and the rich and the middle class has been dead but the floor is on the streets and they're crying and they're sticking accountability. From the Prime Minister Rona you writer activist speaking with us from Mumbai. Thank you very much. Thank you so much Michael in an emergency. Look for the helpers as Mr Rogers used to say getting through this corona virus pandemic is going to take lots of different helpers. Nurses doctors teachers parents ad delivery workers to the list especially in South Korea. Kelly Casula is based in Seoul and place. The local sometimes referred to as delivery nation. I moved to South Korea a few years ago from the US and one thing that's been really easy to get used to is the convenience. Here's what I'm talking about. I was laying in bed a few nights ago when I realized I forgot to buy a special kind of battery for my camera. I panicked a little because I needed it the next morning for work. But then I remembered South Koreans call their country pay down a Nada or delivery nation. For reason I ordered the battery online that same night. The website promised to it gets me time and sure enough. The next morning at seven am so I just got a text message saying that my packages arrived to my door. So I'm about to go grab them. But here's the real kicker. The battery cost me around ten dollars and delivery was three. I feel like a kid opening Christmas presents right now. I slept the battery in my backpack and head out for the day. So it's early morning here and I'm just leaving my apartment to go to work and of course there's one of these delivery trucks in front of my house. The delivery guy must be running upstairs and giving people their packages as I walked to my bus up to other delivery services. Pass me along the way south. Koreans jokingly call themselves deliverymen Joel Min joke means a group of people sort of like an ethnicity or a race but during the krona virus outbreak. The National Obsession with delivery has kicked into overdrive. Udaya Jen twenty five year. Old University student tells me that she does most of her shopping online but nowadays she says y'all go botany because of Corona. I've heard so many more people are getting things online and having them delivered but convenience also comes with a dark side earlier this month. A delivery man working for a big online retailer here died at work. Another delivery guy found his body at two. Am lying in the stairwells. An apartment building with no elevator news media only identified the man as Mr Kim. The incident got a lot of attention. Home is the head of the Labor Union for Delivery Workers Haas as the official reason for Kim's death was listed as heart failure. But that's not what he thinks really killed him. They've done coup all hanging on to. Kim died from being overworked from pressure. That comes with the job. Korean delivery workers are tracked by a GPS SYSTEM. And they're rewarded for speed. That's how management. I noticed something was wrong with the worker who died of hunger. Could it'll pick it. Do you get home in their house. Says he wants employers to stop promising. Don deliveries altogether and the ease up on the pace a year ago. He says he was delivering to about eighty homes per day. Now it's as high as one hundred eighty now. I can't help but to feel guilty every time I open a package but then again south. Koreans aren't the only ones addicted to home deliveries Andrew. Kim is a sociologist at Korea University. All horrible things online. You know like the state is Amazon. Kim tells me in the South Koreans have gone all in quick home deliveries.

"The winter than in the summer. So for instance. Flu has very strong seasonal forcing go much more likely that flu transmission occurring in the winter than you are in the summer months so this study has been interpreted as suggesting that that could be seasonals. Covet however I think that we still need to get more days today. Hot and humid countries seem to have and I should say seem to have had fewer cases of covered nineteen Would you agree with that? And if you do wise at the situation I think we have to consider a number of other factors. That could explain that. For instance one of the introductions sample sample is not only a Hong Eun country place which has excellent public health excellent content tracing and some very will class at Zang's true of Hong Kong. If you look to other places around that region like Indonesia Indonesia was famously darned starting testing and so they may have been a lot of community spread that we just haven't detected but we are seeing with. Kobe is when it enters the community in some places cakes off the jump breaks quite quickly wake in Iran in others. It doesn't that doesn't mean that it's going to happen right now. For instance we can see that. That's probably very good evidence so coded transmission taking place in Florida. So where do you find the strong evidence that Corona virus does behave like the flu virus in that it is seasonal and could lead up over summer months in North America and Europe? So the study talking about it in the moment is probably the strongest evidence that is. I say has another confounding issues to deal with the Isis. Saying transmission is not happening. It could be. The transmission was just not observed. My colleague mercy. Santana has done a study which was looking at the initial epidemic in different parts of China because China's quite China has a number of different climactic conditions different positive so up north. It's kind of coal and Norgren Humid where South Walnut Creek Humid. So if you were able to see seasonable for senior expect to be more transmission happening unless happening down south but when he looked at the early stages of the epidemic he found such a fact have any previous viruses like SARS or merged shown a seasonal pattern or behaved any differently and warm and humid climates. The issue was saws off. That is often misunderstood. Is that people say that way because of the wall and human violence and the change in seasons but actually what happened results was the majority of transmission happened. Africa symptoms so social distancing. People who you know have called for Just staying home had an outsize effect on transmission that does not get a case with code coded increasing evidence. Kobe transmits a full symptoms become apparent and has resulted. That is much much control now when the flu goes away in the summer. It's not just as a seasonal fall saying it's not just because it finds it. Harder to transmit seasonal flu has been done around will with a building community in the community which means tries to transplant. It's more likely to find that resonates transmitting to is immune. So the downtown scene. Flu is due to seasonal plus immunity is. Kobe is a new virus. There is no immunity. I'm wondering professor manage if you feel a little bit uncomfortable. Even drawing the comparison to the flu given that this parallels have largely been dismissed at this point I actually rocker. We've lost people saying this is flew flew. Snood not new. It's it's wrong rolling comparison. It's wrong to say Ho flu. Kills only so many people year and this is killed. Fuelling acts the same key missing. Is that whenever you say that? Have not being not many deaths. It's the so far at the end of that. Have Not Lodge outbreaks with these places yet? This is still very early stages and we're GONNA learn a lot more than a lot of it is gonNA learn considerable costs. What evidence would you need to conclude that the corona virus is affected by temperature and does follow that seasonal forcing dynamic? You were talking about. We would need evidence that would show that the rate of transmission uninterrupted by other things was slower in the summer. And it wasn't a windsor now. Of course it's going to be together because we are going to be seeing a whole lot of Alba countermeasures which can be put in place and rightly so in spreading now. I hope that that is going to drive three number down. But it's going to be very difficult to know whether or not asked countermeasures. Physical Distance Enroll doing the reason. I'm talking to you on skype or if it's use something like seasonable folsom karenna viruses. Don't see as much seasonal focusing flu and that's bad news bill Hanna. Jr is an epidemiologist at the Harvard. T H Chan School of Public Health. Thank you very much for speaking with us and for speaking with us over skype. Don't have a choice. Do We know Ellen? Johnson Sirleaf knows what it's like to face a deadly virus outbreak. She was president of Liberia during her nations battle with the Ebola virus. Nearly five thousand people died there between two thousand fourteen and twenty sixteen and infectious disease. Respect snowboarder in discriminates against no one. I argued that an uncontrolled containment will matter where in the world and no matter. How localize is a threat to all humanity as a Bolo was spreading across Liberia? And it's west. African neighbours Sirleaf made pleas for global unity to avert a pandemic. She wrote what she called a letter to the world and the world responded and they did so boldly we defeated together. Liberia was declared Ebola. Free in June of two thousand sixteen with the Corona virus spreading across the globe. Sirleaf is now making a similar play. We must act to slow down. Break the chain of transmission. It is clear that mistakes have been made in the initial response to the virus from Asia to Europe to the Americas. We made the same mistakes in twenty fourteen but we self correct and we did it all together. We are all in this together advice that helped Liberia during Bola and applicable to the whole world. Now that was former Liberian President Ellen. Johnson Sirleaf speaking with my colleagues at the BBC. You're listening to the world. I'm Marco Werman. You're with the world ninety three years. That's how long the man dubbed the Godfather of natural history has been on this earth. I'm talking about broadcaster. Sir David Attenborough. What I WANNA do is going to look at Odds Fox and pangolins and sloths and humming birds. What an assignment. What if I'm tastic through an didn't matter how badly you did it and we we but but people who said ooh Look Hummingbird ooh look? That's Bangla. That's attenborough on the podcast. The Economist asks a podcast in Partnership With Economist magazine and MC L. Voice a host for this week's episode. She sat down with Sir David Attenborough. So attenborough's ninety three. He's still going strong. Even has a new film coming out a life on our planet that thirst for curiosity and for nature's wonder It seems is not waning. In his ninety s not at all he seems is keen as ever to get out into the world. He said if if I'm asked I go he's head as if he might just put his backpack on and leave the room at any minute and looking for pangolins. I think you get that sense. That hearing from him of wonder of the world he now combines that much more with warning about threat to the natural world and one thing. I've wondered was when he had changed from being someone Houston wandered the globe. Ren- back pictures and stories the extraordinary places and wonderful animals to someone who wanted to send a strong message and this is what he said back in the sixties when the first time I saw a bleach car reef and I realized that the richest environments richest ecosystem the world has ever seen somebody being wiped out and we were doing it. So in the podcast. You Press Sir David Attenborough. Some hard hitting issues specifically his own carbon footprint. I mean he's a man who has traveled all over the globe. What did he have to say about that? And whether he's changed any zone habits to lessen that footprint I often find it. It's a question that makes interviewees regal and I think it makes David attenborough a bit uncomfortable. He takes the view that he travels on long voyages. They are actually pretty efficient in terms of the number of people that he takes with him. He says he doesn't travel unnecessarily but he did say he still sees it as part of the job that he does. It's integral to it. Orders to sitting here are breathing carbon dioxide. We're all contributing to in some way or another to the problem and it is impossible other line down and dying for us to cease doing so what we have to think about is the common dogs that I am producing simply talking to you and sitting here is not being misspent and I hope it. Isn't you fly. Let's yes I suppose I do but I don't fly anyway for fun. I fly as part of my job. Okay that's an interesting distinction. That's a good one As so an David attenborough ninety-three seen a lot and is now in the twilight of his life. How optimistic izzy. About the current environmental movement. He really came to life. I thought on this issue. He sometimes gets bored. Benching an elderly poster child for the Environmental Movement. He said it was visited him. But when we came to talking about Gratitude Burke. I thought he really had an interesting take on her and particularly why he thought that she'd made an impact. But I think it's absolutely astonishing what she's done and she's caused the most mighty potentates in the world to take breath and suddenly think about things. How is the attenborough family appreciated in the UK and have some of David attenborough zone kind of attitude. Shifts got paralleled The the the country's shifts he's a national treasure. It's it's a phrase itself news debate in. Which he he says he doesn't like but I imagine most people would rather be a national treasure national treasure. He's he's not really politically as active as much as someone who really wants to bring you the way that he sees the world into your living room and he believes that wonder is the first step of a broader awakening. He thinks that comes before the activism. Some people see it the other way round would be critical of him from that corner. But that's absolutely what he stands for why he continues to do what he does. Nine decades on and Macelroy podcasts. The economists asks thank you very much. Thank you very much okay. Bringing wonder into your living room. I like that especially right now. Turns out a lot of people do citizen. Science projects have gotten a boost in interest during the corona virus. Pandemic people logging onto their computers from their couches and helping out scientists. Remotely everything from digitizing data to hand counting animals in a photo. We have people counting penguins transcribing old documents. Look at weather records investigating sales and pretty much. Everything in between Chris. Lintott is a professor of astrophysics at the University of Oxford. He runs the website. Zun Averse Dot. Org the site lists dozens of online citizen. Science projects that people can sign up for. The website has blown up since lockdowns around the world have forced people to find things to do at home. We've been incredibly busy. We've had moulded a two hundred thousand people take in the last week which is about six or seven times what we expect. Lintott its own. Science project has also seen an uptick in participation it asks citizen scientists to look at graphs of light emitted from distant galaxies to try to find the shadows of passing planets by the people I tried to escape a little dreaming of new world's one. New Project has launched because of the uptick in volunteers. It's called rainfall rescue. Citizen Scientists transcribe old rainfall records handwritten over centuries by backyard gardeners in the UK utterly overwhelmed with response. We've had seven thousand volunteers get involved already. we've had half a million classifications numbers entered in the first twenty four hours climate scientists. Ed Hawkins at the University of Reading runs that project. I think people just want to distraction. At the moment fill up they can help out in some way and there were the situation that the world is currently in and this is a great way of doing it getting that historic rainfall data off of scanned. Handwritten notes will allow research the plug them into climate change models. Hawkins says climate issues have taken a back seat to the corona virus crisis but he hopes participating in projects like his can help people who are locked down to their sofas feel connected to the things they care about and each other. It is the first of April. No fooling we've been warned. It's going to be a difficult month. How about a song though? Nineteen sixty five in London. The programs the BBC's five to ten the man on guitar. Here is Paul Simon with a song. He wrote the year before April come. She will.

"Doing it in a very methodical way. Because it's not the same as a cruise ship that ship has Armaments on an aircraft on it we have to be with fires at their fires on on more the ship. We have to run a nuclear power plants or there are a lot of things that we have to do on that ship and make it a little bit different and unique but we're managing it and we're working through and we're taking all the input and we appreciate all the Info from the CEO the chef medical command on that ship. And we're going to work on those those issues immediately. For residents of the island of Guam Population. About one hundred. Seventy thousand allowing sales to disembark is a big concern in the headlines. The Pacific News Center a major developing situation this morning after the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt pled with Navy leaders to radio station K. G. UM in Guam's capital had gotten Guam's governor. Liu Leon Guerrero announced today that she is working on a plan to quarantine sailors in local hotels. Lola Leon Guerrero is on Guam. She's an activist with the group Independent. Guan which is concerned about the governor's decision Guam is already trying to contain the rapid spread of covert. That's happening on a very tiny island with just a little over one hundred sixty thousand people we already have seventy seven cases on Guam and so bringing in a carrier with five thousand people who have been in such close quarters with each other And Cova rapidly spreading there that the Annan needs to be able to focus on the community here to the governor of Guam. Promise the navy anything. Well the governor of Guam. After the captain of the carrier wrote a letter about how serious the issue was The governor and the admiral started making decisions to house those who are testing negative in local hotels and they have said that they're going to ensure that a local hotel workers don't interact with the people coming off the carrier that they're working on How that's what that's GonNa look like. Do you know if any sailors have disembarked yet. No so the house of what this is GonNa look like a haven't really been made available to the community. A lot of the numbers have not been officially made available to the community in terms of how many people have already tested positive on the carrier. This information is vital. I believe to our community and it's a big difference from they will stay on the carrier or on peace to now we will be housing them in the hotels. How a dilemma is is for the residents of Guam because Captain Brett Crozier. The commander of the Roosevelt is pleading for help. I mean he's saying. Us troops are in a life and death situation. How are people talking about that? You know what the groups have been saying. Is that if we know. For a fact that it's spreading rapidly on the ship and then you remove them from the ship and you bring them into the local community even one new case in the local community because of how small and interconnected this community is could lead to many many more cases and that is problematic Nobody said that we want to turn away the sailors from from health. Care that they need you. Know there are People Guam. Who served in the navy and our on this carrier and we by no means want them to be mistreated or put their lives at risk. No what we're saying is the navy has the resources to handle this within their base. We should also point out that. Many residents of Guam our veterans or active duty Navy. Some are actually aboard the Roosevelt. Right now so how do those ties between Guam and the US military complicate the situation for people on the island we constantly because of you know our relationship with the United States and with the military particularly the people of Guam? Truly not being able to say you know what we need to focus on how we're going to handle the increasing number of cases that we have and there isn't enough information for us to really know what we're expecting here There hasn't been transparency. On behalf of the Military Victoria. Lola Leon. Guerrero is an activist with the group independent Kuun. She's been speaking with us from Guam Victoria. Thank you very much for your time in good health to you and your family remember the novel. Corona virus is just that novel. New Epidemiologists are learning about it. In real time as it continues its global path of destruction. One question. They're trying to answer is whether there is a seasonal aspect to it. Does it behave like the flu.
