"We start with a phone call to the island of Tonga Everyone's been messaging me since I think last night when people were able to get hold of their relatives or family back in Tonga and my sister in law told me to try his mobile 'cause she was able to contact them by his number So I knew that he was working and just off the bed I started calling his digi so number They said to try at least 20 times and you might get through So I did try 20 times but nothing was going through then I tried his other number that he has We call and it started ringing And I was very nervous but very excited and then he ended the phone That was really really exciting It was a bit awkward too because I was in the shopping center And I was quite loud It sounds like you almost jumped up and down then Yeah yeah it was a bit crazy because I had like my niece and the prim who was sleeping I was in like shopping center at the coffee shop and then when I got through I was like can you hear me Can you hear me Because the line was quite crackly and almost like a gush and wind just constantly So trying to hear him was a little bit hard so I felt like I was talking even louder than I probably but yeah I was just really really excited And how is he and how are things around him He is doing good So he's a civil servant so he went back to work yesterday on Wednesday The surroundings he says is still ash everywhere but he was telling me on the phone that thankfully there hasn't been too much water damage to our house where it just sort of stopped at our front door which has been fantastic That's far matangi who lives in Brisbane in Australia Her husband isle is in Tonga In the days following the devastating undeceived volcano there she wasn't able to contact him You heard her relief when she finally got through That interview is from our BBC OS program and on Facebook it reached close to 100,000 accounts and in Tonga despite the breakdown in communications people have been able to tune into the BBC World Service for updates by radio Tonga 90 FN 10,000 miles away and the question many of you have been asking over the last few days is Russia getting ready to invade Ukraine Technically there's a ceasefire yet sporadic.

And so <Speech_Male> I don't know that <Speech_Male> my experience <Speech_Male> is changed. <Speech_Male> I think it's sort of evolved <Speech_Male> and probably been <Speech_Male> refined over <Speech_Male> time so that <Speech_Male> I'm a little <Speech_Male> bit sharper <Speech_Male> when I go in in terms <Speech_Male> of what I'm looking for <Speech_Male> and the kinds <Speech_Male> of stories that I think <Speech_Male> will resonate. Because I think <Speech_Male> at the end of the day, at least New <Speech_Male> York Times readers, <Speech_Male> they want to be challenged. <Speech_Male> They want to learn <Speech_Male> about a world that's <Speech_Male> different from their own. <Speech_Male> And they want to see <Speech_Male> themselves in perspective, <Speech_Male> at least sometimes. <Speech_Male> So hopefully <Speech_Male> that's what a journalist <Speech_Male> who <Speech_Male> parachutes into <Silence> these places can help <Speech_Male> do. <Speech_Telephony_Male> Yeah, it reminds <Speech_Male> me one of our editors <Speech_Male> here, <Speech_Male> one of his favorite <Speech_Male> lines is like journalists <Speech_Male> are just terrible <Speech_Male> about saying that <Speech_Male> they don't know. But <Speech_Male> sometimes that's the story. <Speech_Telephony_Male> I don't know. <Speech_Telephony_Male> I don't know if this happened. <Speech_Male> I don't know what it means, or <Speech_Male> I don't know where it's going. <Speech_Male> But it's <Silence> hard for it's good for <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> use outlets to do. <Speech_Male> Yeah, I agree. <Speech_Male> I mean, I think we're always <Speech_Male> pushed to assert. <Speech_Telephony_Male> And <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> yet, I think the best <Speech_Male> journalism in many ways <Speech_Telephony_Male> comes from humility and <Speech_Male> curiosity. And <Speech_Male> so <Speech_Male> going into these places <Speech_Male> and not assuming you have it <Speech_Male> all figured out or you know <Speech_Male> what the story is before you <Speech_Male> get there is super important. <Speech_Male> It <Speech_Male> allows for surprise. <Speech_Male> It allows for serendipity. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> it allows for better <Speech_Male> stories. So, you know, <Speech_Male> I do think it's really <Speech_Male> important to kind of <Speech_Male> resist that urge <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> know everything. And to assume that <Speech_Male> you or your editors <Silence> or your <SpeakerChange> readers <Silence> know everything. <Silence> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Damien, thanks so much for coming <Speech_Male> on. Thank <Speech_Male> you so much. <SpeakerChange> I appreciate <Speech_Male> it. So you <Speech_Male> can read CGI's <Speech_Male> coverage <Speech_Male> of what's going <Speech_Male> on everywhere else in the world <Speech_Male> outside of Tonga <Speech_Male> and maybe even some <Speech_Male> in Tonga. <Speech_Male> At CGR <Speech_Male> dot org through <Speech_Male> our daily email newsletter, <Speech_Male> the media <Speech_Telephony_Male> today and <Speech_Male> on <Speech_Male> social media. <Speech_Male> Thanks for listening <SpeakerChange> to you next <Speech_Music_Male> week.

"Or even I don't know what the attitude is there towards aid. But maybe it's the same thing. I mean, I just find our assumptions about what people want and need both from press and from aid, maybe wrong. I don't disagree. I mean, I think I have been able to actually reach people in Tonga since I started the reporting. And they're busy cleaning up. You know, there's a reporter there who works for a local independent news outlet, matanga. And I was like, hey, can you maybe just do some reporting for me? And she was like, honestly, I'm just trying to do what I need to do here. And basically was like, yeah, I don't really think I need to make sure that the world knows exactly what's going on here. I need my people to understand and to move forward. And yes, aid will come in, but that's not the only thing that matters. And so I agree with you. I mean, I think what's interesting is, even for these dung is overseas, they would reach their family members and their family members would be like, oh, it's fine. Don't worry about it. It's just a lot of ash. Go back to your job and making money over there wherever you are. And so there's sort of in some ways a sense of both resilience and comfort with the disconnection that I think is more jarring for those of us who are news consumers. And in some ways, it just feels like a different approach to disaster and to life. And you have to remember, this is a place that deals with a lot of site clones, the deals with earthquakes and volcanos nearby. And so it is a slightly different experience. So, but I agree. I think it's a totally fascinating example of a place that doesn't necessarily share the same sense of immediacy or values of being overly informed and nor is necessarily as connected to their phones as the rest of the world..

"I tried to get in with every imagine a group with every Defense Department in foreign trade office in the region. And it was turned down in every case because Tonga basically isn't allowing anyone in. You know, there's a three week quarantine rule for anyone who comes, which obviously doesn't work if you're trying to get immediate aid in. And the UN basically said, listen, at some point, we're going to need to negotiate this, but right now, we're doing less delivery. And so even if you get on an aid boat or an aid flight, you're not going to get off. And all you're going to see is what you can see from the window. And even that, they wouldn't let me do. So it is a really unique situation, but this is a part of the world that historically suffered a lot of disease brought in, frankly, by white outsiders who were trying to do good or in some cases just trying to sell them things. And so the memory of past pandemics and past problems with illness and disease brought in from outside is still pretty fresh. And so both politically and from a health perspective, it's super, super sensitive. That's so interesting. So is that still where they are in terms of are they still demanding sort of contactless aid? They are. Yes, that's still what's going on. I checked in with you in yesterday. And nothing has changed. They're bringing in more flights and more ships. But everything is basically dropped off and then picked up later by someone in Tonga. And so and then if there are, as there have been, cases where there are positive COVID cases on board, then those ships get turned around. So it's created a lot of delays, I think, and getting aid and assistance to Tonga. And if you sort of put on the sidelines, your own efforts to get there. I mean, is it there's nothing really you can do at this point? There isn't really anything I can do. I mean, my editors keep asking me if I can get in and I keep saying I'm drawing and the answer continues to be no. So yeah, nothing has changed, nor has it changed for any of these aid workers. I mean, the UN and the Red Cross are lucky and that they had local volunteers on the ground, and that's who they're working through basically..

"Cable had been cut, and that happened about an hour a little over an hour after the eruption, no one knew what was going on. And so you had this like hint of extreme disaster. There were like two videos that tongans were like sharing and deconstructing and really going over and again and again. And in one, there was a tsunami wave that was pushing through a bunch of kind of suburban fences as vans drove away. And another one, it was just this slow moving wave moving across a road. And so that was sort of all we had for a while. And so we knew that there was enough to cause damage, but we weren't sure how much damage there weren't a whole lot of voices of people on the ground. So it was an extreme extremely bizarre kind of event. Although you wrote a piece pretty quickly that I thought was pretty interesting, just about how severed the place became really quickly. And as I was reading, I was like, how did you find this out? If all these people had been cut off? Yeah, so good question. So what I ended up doing, one, you had this period of time where there was a little bit of connection. So, you know, the cable, if you look at the traffic on the cable, it declined and then just was cut off completely. So what I ended up doing was looking first or looking for tongans living overseas who had made a connection to their family in that hour window. You know, and I happened to find a couple people mainly by just doing what all records do. I just went on social media and looked for anyone who appeared to be tongue and talking about their family or worrying about their family. And just message them and asked if it had any information or anything like that. So in some ways, it was a bit of telephone tag. And just trying to find some people had something..

"Hi, welcome to the kicker. I'm Kyle Pope. Editor and publisher of the Columbia journalism review. This week, the volcanic eruption in Tonga. And how that's being covered and what that says about aid and the press. So there was a massive volcanic eruption on the island of Tonga. It was the world's largest volcanic eruption in decades, the sonic boom could be heard as far away as Alaska, and it produced this 300 mile wide volcanic mushroom cloud. Amazingly, the death toll was relatively low considering the extent of the blast. And immediately both aid workers and journalists start to figure out how do we get in there to report this story, but also to give a to the 100,000 people or so who live in Tonga. And it proved to be amazingly difficult. The ash prevented airplanes relating to the airport, the ash prevented satellite phones from working. And a Internet cable, the sole undersea Internet cable that connected Tonga to the world snapped during a tsunami and it completely cut the place off..

by more than 2700 journalists and Alice in more than a 120 countries I'm Hannah George this is Bloomberg Caroline Thank you so much Honey yes watching that French Open which is in May for all of you tennis fans out there Thanks a lot for the world news Right let's talk about what's going on in markets The major breakout in U.S. yields has turned equity markets lower across the board But actually there's not been much panic Two year yields climbed as much as 16 basis points from the close on Thursday yields on the ten year have also hit the highest for the past year Stock markets down less than 1% futures are only down this morning about half of 1% right now Joining us now is Mads pedersen who is chief investment officer and founder at human edge investment technology Mads welcome back to radio Thanks for being with us Socks are showing some quite impressive resilience aren't they Why Well they are showing some impressive but very justified resilience in the sense that the global economy is still very strong as we have seen in the U.S. the earnings season is extremely strong So maybe not surprising to the upside yet as much as we expect but mostly what is going on is it's very cheap being a company because it's still very inexpensive to borrow and is very profitable being company because them ahead is very high So in that situation if you as an investor you're looking would have better equities or would a rather hold Bond You can see that year to date ten year bond in U.S. is down the same more or less as S&P but the upside for the next three to 5 years is probably much larger on the equity side So markets are taking it for now relatively company Getting over their skis in pricing in full rate hikes given what we're seeing in terms of the movement around years is this catching up to arguably complacency and are they now baking in too much I don't think market would be too much yes And I don't think we have fully caught up to the complacency But I think complacency is maybe maybe a fair way of describing it So the potential for weights to go higher still they are expected we will need more but a three to 5 rate hikes in the coming year is looks like being what the economy needs The risk of the fed hiking all the way until inflation is down is of course when the risk of the policy stabilized but for the time being expecting that the federal has to go back to two two and a half percent in two years seems reasonable given how fast the global economy is running and given that we ended up with 7% inflation which nobody really wished at any time What did you make then of the PBOC move yesterday in terms of cutting interest rates We also had a big data dump as well Did that sort of confirm your view around China you have in the past talked about not liking Chinese high yield bonds Yes I still don't like Chinese value bonds That's key And it's not because they could not potentially give a return It's just the risk is very high And the rate cut in China itself was very small The data points were weak and expected and it plays into this idea that China needs to bail out or close down some of the property sector It would be very helpful if it could clearly be assessed which part of it what is the political goal What is the practical goal which part does need to be close just like a Scandinavian banking trust in the early 90s If you remember back then you know you have too much construction You have too much financial interest intermediation to clean up some of it That process is ongoing in China and they need liquidity for that So the Chinese Central Bank provides liquidity quantitative amounts and they provide lower rates That's the way it works If you would now turn around and say okay this is how I want to use this crisis to clean up then that would be the help China needs to move on When we switch our attention to earnings we are getting into the thick of the earnings season certainly with banks reporting this week Do you think earnings will come in stronger Or at least strong enough to offset what we're seeing in terms of these higher yields and adjustments to the growth outlook I think so I'm not sure if we will get just this week if we release but if we look for this earnings season and banks earnings season I think we'll get a clear confirmation that companies are still making very very solid earnings and we have seen of course last year that the earnings came.

Nicaragua: How to Write Yourself Into Exile

"There is only one good thing to be said for the spectacle of a given government picking on writers and novelists and artists of any description. It saves the busy bypass whatever valuable time. They may have spent wondering whether the government in question still has all marbles in one sock when a given government starts picking on writers and novelists and artists of any description. It is announcing itself as tyrannical foolish and deranged. Such is the unhappy if altogether unsurprising point arrived at by the regime of daniel ortega president of nicaragua as demonstrated by its issue of a warrant for the arrest of sergio ramirez. Probably nicaragua's best known and most admired novelist. One time winner of the guel devotees prize awarded by spain's ministry of culture to recognize outstanding spanish language literature and therefore a peer of borges for enters vargas loeser and pass among other distinguished scrivener's any has split wishing to note at this point that the warrant has been issued by nicaragua's state prosecutors and not by the presidency has not been paying much attention to the evolution of ortega's thinking vis-a-vis the separation of powers ramirez. Who took the clearly sensible precaution of leaving nicaragua a few months back and is now resident in costa rica stands accused of inciting hatred and conspiring to undermine the integrity of the country. What ramirez actually appears to have done is written a novel entitled tonga. Lali did not know how to dance. An exceedingly thinly veiled parable set in contemporary nicaragua. who's people being terrorized by overstaying revolutionary government. Which has long since abandoned whatever principles may once have animated it and is now concerned only with maintaining power at any price up to and including the blood of its own citizens

"Percents Is yeah that's that's family life change. So because there's there's a couple of things hale. I'm thinking about what i think with. Regards to what i've seen in el salvador. This things like strike which allows you to get more stable currency in and then the things like bitcoin which allows you to get bitcoin him. But then there's the issue of If small volatile and people might need the money there. And then i mean the first thing i'm thinking of is it any access to a bitcoin exchange in tonga big bitcoin. Atm's is any way to convert bitcoin into the local currency the only way to convert bitcoin currency is to find Chinese vendors will accept. It is nine formal exchange but there are chinese vendors to accept I don't know how much you know about China so The digital yuan is still being rolled at. It's pretty much all doubts. before our country Had a full embassy in china on my ex wife. And i were under a consulate in in beijing for two years even back then they using ed ethical way chats and they gently in. It's so when you come out of a banker subway station. The biggest sitting there asking for money turn have their handouts. They have my ball. Find out and ask you a hit them with a digital donation. So that's the case with all l. chinese vin does dominate ninety nine percent of the market and Accept bitcoin Allies number. So we've been able to send money back to long while it's and then have been accepted at the at the shop front. Basically the way you would use dry in el salvador you can pay you. Turn up the store and you cannot cash out or you transact also the broker and buy from me to you know what kind of present that challenging. Not not exactly because it varies widely because strictly speaking. It's not a hundred percent legal. Because as you said i think as a braga technically but In their is they're just accepting its designers accepting us the a you the edges except the another currency for the venda they have the rod to designed to decide by exempts pigs. Adult biker inexpensive it is entirely after them so it's not formerly a brokerage because if it were a bridge it would regard financial services upright. He's losses so. Yeah but yeah it seems like to me is like strike souls an initial problem of of killing the remittance and having to worry too much about volatility but also bitcoin solves a problem the live kind of recognize with el salvador in that you can get enough bitcoin in the country on a long enough timeframe that that bitcoin raises the net wealth of the country because it appreciates appreciates more than traditional currencies. If sourcing if it's doubled. Yeah i was gonna say initially exposure to bitcoin the rials if if we were to adopt strike and adopting strike would really in real terms. I only involve a everyone down lighting and epinephrine and the points of style than learning and on the head of the android tablets and accepting the medium of exchange at doesn't necessarily require an act of parliament or even endorsement from the central bank. Strictly speaking if a strike when it's a nike arrangement with a financial institution. So that they could work to get clearance. That's another matter. But just strictly to transact in that would give us back that nine percents of the forty percent so half the forty percent is worth two hundred million so a nineteen percent is So nineteen percent is was closed. One hundred million So we're putting a hundred million dollars back in everyone's pockets just from exposing them to the riot i without even touching so agenda needs the bank account to be connected but the receiver as you can receive it as an does And have a with a participating stole frontal cashpoint Can have given to them in a phoenix or they can lights were warm wallet. The exposure to the riles immediately gives that one hundred million dollars back that that even touchy bitcoin usage. Yeah and then After a while so doing that one hundred million dollars back basically means you're gonna get a hundred dollars in your pocket when one hundred dollars sent instead of seventy hours so that extra thirty dollars you're gonna spend to increase your standard of living but after well as you said as time goes you'll remember that you got by on the seventeen and it was handsome mouth but you got blonde seventy and then you'll realize that the thirty is not just for rising standard of living. It's giving you the first chance in your life to have savings and therefore they will event eventually begin to stack says as i say so. The economy will benefit by every customer. Having this visable income increased by thirty percent and because country imposes a fifteen percent vats In reversing is putting an extra thirty percent into that that fifteen percent vet. 'cause i got extra thirty percents of disposable income just from the riles simultaneously with that extra. Thirty percents this this some agung to be saving rather than putting it into the economy and stepping sets which will appreciate and for the first time someone is a village fishermen and has been hands mouth all his life as a glimpse at possibly having sightings that might be the foundation or financial freedom. We get double. When he just the riles and then the i said so funnily enough Developed world went store value first and then wasn't through your medium of exchange with some hikers being of accounts the developing world is gone maiden of exchange first and then would towards store value as i begged the front Fillets.

Sea Level Rise a Major Threat to San Francisco

"All over the bay Area by 2050 In less than 30 years. Projections show floodwaters swamping bridges, infrastructure and entire neighborhoods. KQED science reporter Kevin Starke has been following this story as part of the Pulitzer Centers nationwide. Connected Coastlines Reporting Initiative and Kevin East Palo Alto specifically, is one community really susceptible to sea level rise in the Bay Area. How much of a threat is this? Well, already Half of the city lies in a federal flood zone. It's bound by water on three sides, the Bay and the San Francis Skeeto Creek. And it's located in the South Bay, where tides of the highest during bad storms the city already regularly experience is flooding. The average high tide in the bay is going in one direction. It's up. Scientific projections show up to a couple feet of sea level rise by mid century, and then the rate of rise could dramatically increase beyond that, so this is truly an existential threat for the community and his power out there. Great and this isn't just about sea level rise right? There are larger social forces at play here, too. Absolutely. The community is roughly two thirds Latino, has a sizable population from the Pacific Islands. In fact, we interviewed people who emigrated to East Palo Alto from places like Samoa and Tonga, in part to get away from flooding and climate change on the islands on me to find that it is an issue here along the bay, so the effects of climate change disproportionately impact communities like East Palo Alto. Many people in the community that we spoke with talk about the cost of housing. There's been a lot of pressure. There is Facebook and Google and other big companies have built campuses nearby. Yet East Palo Alto is this

Small Ships in Alaska: A Guide To Cruising off the Beaten Path

"The big ship alaska season is probably over for this year. However there are four key cruise operators that are still going to cruise because they are small ships and they are not band. They do not have to stop and canada. And those cruise lines are alaskan dream cruises american cruise lines lindblad expeditions and un crews there all featuring small ships sailing under a us flag without the need to visit a foreign port so christopher wanted to know like what are those crews like what what is something like that look like what is the itinerary like and as such a good question. So i'm gonna go through it with you guys. Because i want you to know it's very different from a big ship cruise but a sample one on cruise adventure. Let's just look at their alaska glacier country seven night cruise and see what this is like. Okay you're gonna get one day in glacier bay national park. Excuse me joined by park ranger you're going to have up-close looks at dawes marjorie and grand pacific glacier. Those are that's three glaciers. You're going to bushwack in the tonga's national forest. You're going to go to the fords terror wilderness area by skiff and hike inland. If you want. I'm sure a lot of this hiking in book bush whacking is all very optional. On i think it's chicken gough island you'll see humpback whales and frederick sound and the chatham strait you'll do wildlife searches for black and brown bears a number of areas you're gonna kayak paddle board and skip if you want to. You're going beach comb. You're going to visit tide pools and you're going to go on forest ecology discoveries. But you're still going to visit different ports in fact you might embark in juneau and that's very different right. You actually embark in june so you can get started there then on day two you might go to icy strait have a nice cup of coffee get snug in your kayak and glide around and kayak that date again. There's loads of options. Then you might have your third day. Glacier bay national park your fourth day might be in the chatham strait seeing so many different things. If you'd like to go backpacking and go skipping on a boat. You can day five. You might go to q. Island day six frederick sound day seven endicott arm and dawes glacier and day eight juno now again this particular one that i read to you guys is more all about explorations. Less about port stops but they do have several itineraries from une cruised that visit the ports the standard ports as well. But since you're doing round trip juno they're just really focused on adventure and exploration and things like that. They're

Is Mourinho to Blame for Spurs' Poor Form?

"It's thursday. i'm gap. He's jewels jobs. We got so much stuff going on because mountie. She'll put your gino winning his first trophies manager. I think his first kofi ever i. We'll be joined by franklin buff to talk a little bit about that in a minute. Manchester united top of the league first time in january. First time since the sir. Alex ferguson era by your munich. Out of the german cups is i don't mean the be. Let's start with tottenham hotspur because we've been talking about their chances are they're going to be better worse than last year. How they're pushing. I feel like i've seen this again. I think they've dropped ten points from leading positions. They played fulham last night. You figure you know not easy but full no time to prepare as well. We'll get to that in a minute. And there's more count sempe gab. They take the lead the play well for twenty five minutes and then they stop the talking and they just want to protect that lead. They want to control the game to manage the game. But there's another hour to go. But he's not a bad idea necessarily when you've sawn and harry kane and all these counter-attackers but you don't even counterattack. You do nothing. You just sit deep and you just wait and we saw that against wolves. What wolf scored in the end we against palace. Guess what in the end and now we see that a home at home against fulham where you just stop playing hurricane. One sean tonga. The whole game. That's his goal twenty minutes in after that. Nothing just nothing and i just don't understand why i'm more for protecting your lead in the last ten minutes you bring another center box in or i don't know you you put back five and you you make sure that you don't leave to more space and etc but no one. There's an hour to go. Don't give not extra confidence to the opposition team. Don't invite pressure. don't let them play. I i take your point. I'm wondering if maybe this was a game. Where i thought was very good when he was on the pitch. This is maybe a game where i always mentioned him. But if you have a lasalle so that you can bring on that may be all of a sudden you can keep the ball more. You can keep the ball further away. You can be a little bit more balanced in in how you do it. You know rather than going. I mean if you're if you're just right now do you go and you knock it down. Levi's store and say look. Don't look at me. This is the best i can do in this thing. That's true i don't. I'm sorry. I don't think that's the best you can do. I don't know the price. I lease the last time i spoke to some of them. They were happy but since december the six when they went top of the table the seven in the league. They lost two hundred four. I mean this is. This is not good enough. This is just not good enough. And i think you could say your needs better player or you need different profiles there and they're still. I still think that he gets his wrong. That tactics is wrong because the pleasure doing what he says. he's saying. Okay win the lead saw against arsenal in a second of and they were up and that was fine and they managed to get out and okay good but as we said against war against pilots against on this. Just not good enough. I'm sorry you keep talking. Last night. In a game against tim against fulham who had played three days three days before with the strongest team in the africa because he didn't play again for another week.

Severe tropical cyclone NASA has left thousands of people homeless and at least four Fijians dead. He has been loadings. Yes, sir, left a trail of destruction across final 11, Fiji's second largest island. The first overflights show whole villages were wiped out. The cost of the damage is likely to run into hundreds of millions of dollars and aid effort is getting underway to distribute drinking water, food parcels and tarpaulins. The Red Cross said the storm had left many villages with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Since the storm hit, there has been no communication with the eastern Lau Group of islands. The extent of the damage there is not known. Psycho. NASA has now weakened as it heads down to Tonga.

Road, logging restrictions to end in largest US national forest

"With the trump administration taking shots at our fragile planet to get some votes before the election earlier this week the Department of Agriculture announced they'll be lifting environmental protections from Alaska's Tonga's national forest. It's the largest forest in the country, one of the largest intact temperate rainforests in the world, and it's also home to the greatest known concentration of Bald Eagles. The metaphor is just too obvious and yet I can't totally articulate it because I'm just pissed off. Just, messed up The USDA's decision will lift restrictions on logging and building roads throughout the park which conservation groups say will have a disastrous effect moving on from pristine forests. The trump administration set their sights on wolves are removing endangered species, protections for gray wolves across most of the country that decision could allow people in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin to start hunting them again, conservationist say it's premature and could lead to extinction so.

"Those of you who are already part of the talking about our generation family. Welcome back for those of you or a new to our podcast. Welcome. This podcast is all about connections sharing caring communicating aimed at baby boomers me those of us born between nineteen, forty, six and nineteen, sixty four. We're about remembering who we were and what we've accomplished in what all that means. Today right now 'cause that conversation is really important. We launched last year on the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock because that was an event that had a major influence on our generation. So we started with a series called the woodstock roads which are conversations with people who made woodstock happened, and who created that amazing magical woodstock spirit that still lives on in many of us today. Soon. We'll be airing our fifty first anniversary of Woodstock episode and we have a very special guest in store for you. We'll talk about that later in this episode but right now we invite you to listen in on our conversation with Lisa Law. Lisa has been a photographer since the days of Haight Ashbury probably even before that and she was also part of the hog farm that was responsible for feeding nearly two hundred thousand woodstock attendees. If. There is one word I would use to describe. Lisa, it's driven. If these were the days of the old West and we were heading from east to California. I would want Lisa driving the lead wagon in the wagon train. Join me now in my conversation with Lisa. You started documenting events in movements with your camera way before Woodstock back in the Christie Minstrel days the love ends in San, Francisco and Haight Ashbury. You were the witness. Through your is, we got to see a lot of the life from those times in the sixties and not just the musicians but the culture, the things that you covered were are conic I- I documented. Every part of my life and I was really lucky to be at the right place at the right time. I was there for the commune's for the. Haight Ashbury for Woodstock monory pop I just happened to be at the right place at the right time with her husband and while I was traveling around in my hippy bus. We have this big giant hippy bus fixed up in the second Alec I still drive it today. It's out of my driveway. I was able to have a dark room in the bus so I was always printing developing and. I was able to. Share those with other people and I felt it was important to show her how beautiful the hippies were in what their ideas were back to the land and natural childbirth eating good food and recycling, and all those values that are so important today were started in sixties. So let's talk about the hog was the hog farm commune. Farm is a Commun-. Of like people that chipped in and did. Helped up with a work. Great. The Hog farmers still commune. Have A ranch up in late in Ville. and. They still run campaign rainbow with Wavy gravy and Johanna Raw. Their commune lasted because. They. Really worked at. Her cat show there the they went to woodstock. got. What happened was? Wavy was. Living. Down at the bottom of this tale in Tonga with his wife and the pranksters with can Keesey came. And they stayed overnight with him. They were in the bus in the morning the owner said, get out all these people. And just at that point, there was a Fellow up the hill ahead a hog farm. And he had a heart attack. And he asked them if they would come up and slop hogs. So the whole group of. Wavy in his few people and then the pranksters all went up to the top of the mountain there and slop hogs. Okay.

perfect pronunciation it's about three twenty in the afternoon the halls are waving his the water is like a bath is incredibly beautiful wonderful now that we've exhausted our ability to project that's gonna be spring storm because players already there we come to the important matter of China and Tonga they're in tangled in what you'd have to say is diplomatic confusion but before we do that is the corona virus a risk in the South Pacific is Tongo worried in any fashion yes they are in fact when I flew here about a week ago on my flight there was that a sports team coming back from six weeks of training in China and they probably had trying at that time on there church China has been doing an enormous amount of boxcar training not just a bureaucrat academic all that sort of stuff but increasingly of sport he said it's currently about forty Tonya and stuck in China they can't get laid out better being kept in their hotel the airport and here at Nicholson has put in place screening for those please give me coming from China but it's quite difficult to control because there are tired charter flights coming in from China with just Chinese on them and unregulated migration is creating a kind of a lot of concern because they come in a church but it's unclear how many of them day so the official estimates of Chinese in Tonga is about two to three thousand that I've I've heard that at a recent head count down on the side gate the numbers were as high as seven thousand which in a population of a hundred thousand is incredibly high garden clear first of all one of these days I'm gonna ask how can I get an assignment to go to the South Pacific slope which out of him and he has a moment are the it is S. workout there are many Chinese floating around the con that but many of them are just refugees from China that they want to get out from the system they want to be able to make money they don't want the government up on their shoulder at and they are economic migrants in a sense but they are people who have fled in Tonga the Chinese are there who are there are they there at the direction of Beijing or are they people like the ones in Africa who are just sort of hoping to get away from it all there are widely speaking three different groups of recently arrived ethnic Chinese and what he said you know there's some Chinese populations in the Pacific we've been here for you know over a hundred years like the ones in French Polynesia whatever time talking mostly but the ones that arrive in the last fifteen to twenty years and an increasingly so over the last few years there one group would be kind of the overt diplomatic corps I said the people associated with the embassy or coming on government missions then there is a cluster of extremely well connected wealthy business people who do who do business in tongue and across the region and they're the ones that will own the massive amount of small local shops that are manned by more migrant Chinese showed there are about eighty to ninety percent of the retail sector in tongue is controlled by the Chinese now that might only be ownership for them the the money might come from maybe half a dozen of well placed Chinese but the the hundreds or thousands of other Chinese who worked there shops may only be here for five six seven years to get enough money to go back to China or try to get Tony citizenship and use that to get to Australia New Zealand Canada US so they're very different groupings each of those groupings if there have any links back to mainland China can be lovers for what Beijing wants in the country in terms of information or insulin in seventeen seventy three captain cook visited what is now called Tom good the kingdom of Tonga and he called it the friendly islands is it friendly cleo are things well there or is this complication with China making people sour we got about a minute now okay well he caught in the friendly island because they greeted him with a seat and that the plan was actually among the tongue and Choo I'd get the night relax and then so the crew and take the ship but the time is among themselves were fighting over who would get the spoils advance that this European ship on the bottom and then some so much that could banish six away quite peacefully so the question is going to be rather than trying and can come together with this latest ship pulled apart offerings coming from China and put up enough of the protection of their own society so that they can defend them in the face of it our church of course offering coming from Beijing is there a watch for the corona virus in the kingdom of Tonga now very very much there at the airport there monitoring everybody coming in scholars in the South
