As the claim that canadian soldiers were spreading covid nineteen or that an internal memos circulating in the polish ministry of defence called for resistance against an american army of occupation a forged memo helpfully provided hijacked social media accounts used to lend plausibility to a very implausible.

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.

At least four people dead as Tropical Cyclone Yasa leaves trail of destruction in Fiji

"And New Zealand Air Force teams are resisting the authorities in Fiji as they assess the extent of the damage from a powerful storm. 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.

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.

Is Sweden right in its handling of COVID-19?

"When most of Europe went into strict lockdown in much Sweden but the trend social distancing was recommended and large gatherings were banned but restaurants workplaces and junior schools and boarders. I stayed open in pursuit of what some people call herd immunity strategy. So how's it going? And what listens are there for Australia? Will Swedish Intellectual Johan? Norberg is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and he's author of progress ten reasons to look forward to the future Johan welcome back to between the lines. Thank you great to be back now this week. The Australian Treasury Josh Freudenberg was asked if we would follow the Swedish example as we into the next stage of the vars response and he ruled it out and he said quote. Sweden has forty percent of Australia's population but Sydney tons the death right. The numbers speak for themselves. That's Josh Freudenberg. Our Prime Minister Scott Morrison waiting. He called Sweden's approach a death sentence. Johan what do you think well? I have to admit that compared to Australia. Sweden does not look like a success but in fact nothing looks like a success. Compared to Australia right now except for possibly New Zealand is in the same vicinity but every European country has suffered much much worse whether they've had entered lockdowns or more of a Swedish line and I think that's partly because we got the transmission Into our population at earlier in a more massive stage. It's more difficult to when we have all these land borders next to countries with millions and millions of people and of infected so. I don't think the comparison with Australia is. Is that relevant apart? From the fact that you also have to deal with it longtime when you get out of the lockdowns and when you begin to approach more of an open world again with will global travel then at least the World Health Organization says that Sweden might be a model to look to in any case and and and despite everything so far Sweden has been an outlier when it comes to policy but not when it comes to the outcomes sweetness somewhere in the middle when it comes to European states. Okay no matter how you add the numbers up. Sweden has more deaths than your Nordic neighbours. What do you expect to see in those countries as as Tonga's on that's true so far it looks worse in Sweden? But why is that well? The assumption from Swedish L. Authorities. Is that our neighbors. They have merely postponed cases and deaths. They have not avoided them. They went into lockdown. Which means that in the short run. It looks good but once they get out of it and they're starting to get out of it now. The the lockdowns on the shutdowns. They're bound to see a second wave of infections and deaths the thing to ask when you look at the Swedish model is at. Did we avoid to overwhelm our healthcare system Did those who suffer and died from covy. Nineteen would they have died in any case if they got this disease six months later or twelve months later? So did we avoid that kind of healthcare breakdown and it seems like we did that all the time. The intensive care units have had an excess capacities. Weeden by around twenty percent. So far so it seems like They they would have died from the disease whenever we got the disease into our population. And what I expect from our neighbors. Unfortunately that without a vaccine and that might be a year away and could take much longer. They won't be able to avoid it in the long run and they will suffer those consequences once they get out of lockdown.

Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs

"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.

How Peloton Went From Failing to Billion Dollar Business Using 1 Marketing Tactic

"We are going to talk about how Peleton went from failing to becoming a billion dollar business using one marketing tactic so some context real quick on what. Peleton is actually have a bike behind me. Neil has Peleton as well peleton is. It's exercise equipment that you can use from home live a bike and there's a screen in front of it and I can go online. I can you know take classes whenever I want. I can take him live. Sometimes I have instructors. Neil has the treadmill and then they have other devices. Coming out is all. They have Pelham Yoga Meditation Weightlifting Too. So it's just a very convenient way to exercise and they are now a publicly traded company and that is basically what happened the so. What is that one marketing tactic? Neil so let me tell you a little bit story I era. You know the founder of Polygon used to Pitch Investors Multiple Times a day. I think he said something like over a thousand times of a struggling at the beginning to five believed in the vision upheld on And now it's a big company. And when they first started they really struggled. Can you guess what the price of their bike was? When they first started a couple thousand bucks eight hundred dollars what I right. Okay Cubo and guess how while they were doing when sales not well. Why because eight hundred dollars is kind of in no-man's-land so the bike was too cheap. Where people wasn't high quality so no one was buying it. So the moment they jacked up. The prices started selling like hotcakes. But the moment is too cheap known wanted to buy a panic questioned the quality of it's like if you buy a Mercedes too cheap. It's like what's going on. Do exactly like you and I were a lot of tensions right. You were all birds. I wear Nikes if you found a new brand of tennis shoes. They look great but there were twenty bucks or ten dollars. Would you buy you know why because you question? It's too cheap again where you questioned the quality of it because you expect if it's like an all birds you expect a certain price in certain quality around it and all of a sudden it drops to like a quarter of the price. I'm like okay. Something's fishy here exactly. And that's all Peleton did and you know it's funny. Pricing is just such a simple thing that you can end up tweaking to generate quite a bit more money. Eric and I had at our last event in San Francisco. We had Patrick Campbell from Talk about how to optimize pricing and he has a track record of tweaking. Pricing Your Business whether it's service offer ECOMMERCE and generating you extra fifteen percent annual revenue which is huge. And you guys should check out priced intelligently or prophet well as well. I think they're new company. Name is profit while but the overall point I'm making pricing charging more or less in many cases can have a huge impact on your business. If it's too cheap people are gonNA think it's too wrong. I have a friend that makes man made diamonds and he's raised well over one hundred million dollars from it and the chemical compound like when someone looks and analyze. Diamond looks no different than the diamond. That you would dig up from Earth is just. They figured out how to create machines at replicates happening you know deep down in Earth and at first they weren't generating enough sales because Tucci. The moment they started charging more money for it they started generating more sales. So it happened that a lot of industries in space if you discharge too cheap. You're not going to generate. It can actually hurt you. Decrease your conversion rate. Believe it or not yeah I think those of you that are interested in those of you running software businesses Tamasha. Tom Goose if you just Google Tom. Tonga's that's T. U. N. G. U. N. Z. Tonga's maybe no after that. But you'll find it anyway. He has a couple of pricing case. Studies out there He does he does a lot of graphs modeling and that kind of stuff. On on his blog I do think pricing is one of the biggest levers that you can pull a couple of other things I want to call out to is the bike. I think it's anywhere from twenty four to twenty eight hundred dollars. How much was the the treadmill if you bought it straight up? I think I paid like three or four grand for a treadmill got most people. This is the it's a very high end product right. So most people aren't going to be able to afford. I think one big thing that helped them to was that they ended up using a service called firm which allows you to finance the product to where you end up paying like thirty bucks or sixty bucks a month. Something like that. Maybe a little more and you don't pay any interest on it so that allows them to opening up to the market so kind of what Neil talking about too is when you look at Tesla they started out with the roadster or not the row maybe it's old roadster initially very high end and Tesla the Model S. was very high end and then once he started getting more of the market. There you know. More people started becoming aware of it then. He started creating lower and products. Which is what Peleton is doing right. Now see start high in first high pricing and you start to go You start to go down market. Which is what. Tesla's we know what their model threes and then they're coming out with all these other different cars and all these other different products too. So that's one thing you want to look at long-term

Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker

"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing. A movie has been made about her experience called maiden trip and she wrote a book called one girl one dream. It's pretty amazing. What people can accomplish

"Next guest has thought a lot about raising the visibility of the indigenous lands that La is built upon and about the indigenous tribes that have called L. A. Home for Millennia. To Not Zine Carmelo is Tova and her tribe has called the L. A. Area home long before the Hollywood he would sign mark. The hillside to on-scene is an actress. You might know her from Steven Spielberg's miniseries into the West or TV shows like Undone Z.. Z. Nation or the Sun just to name a few I've reached non seen in her home in La. Hello and welcome. Thank you could be here so when you see the Hollywood sign there on the hill something so iconic to l. a.. What do you think about? Oh what do I think about too much. Oh I don't see it like everyone else sees it I would imagine As a Tonga Person. Yes and of course the word Tonga me people of the earth and Part of our belief is that we are part of the earth. And you're part of us and so when I see the beautiful Hollywood hill I actually see the hill and feel like if you know part of me as traditional person so it's kind of part of our history and Lore but with this funny white sign on it. That's the way. Yeah no as Tong long actress living and working. LA IN LA. How would you describe the visibility of the Tonga in in Los Angeles visibility has has been really remote actually for railing on time and I think currently people are kind of starting into wake up slowly but I think that we live our ancestor lands are very were and are on highly? Highly desirable land is prime real estate and was deemed that from the very first moment we are also like I contact tribe so you know whatever happened to whatever happened to all the other tribes in the Americas happened to I've anymore magnified in in condensed and very rapid fashion Because Orlando so desirable and so. I think that's something that people have have really wanted to not think about for a very very long time and I think people are starting to think about it. You know as an turning to wake up from it all and so Our survival I mean really had to go underground and a lot of ways some of the head intermarry with the other tribes that were surrounding But still remained on our land. Some of US Had to leave the land. Some of US went away for a little while. which was my family? We actually really lived on the reservation for awhile and then came back so we all have very street a descendant so it's very complex. Dude Dude. Very confusing Do a lot of people I think. And it's very unique as well because that's part of our history and who we are as a drive was on very very desirable land. Yeah now you've been working in Hollywood for quite some time now What is your take inexperience? in regards to indigenous indigenous representation in TV and film I think it's been evolving slowly and is on its way to being a little bit more creative. Created a little less stereotypical but it has a long way to go and Yeah you know the evolution has still been Kinda a slow drip but it is happening. I do see different roles that are kind of various epochal but there twists to them. And there's new the ideas that are interjected into them that maybe people haven't seen before For instance my role in the nation. which is you know sci-fi Apocalyptic Zombie show? Oh it's different from what you typically have seen in the past. Yeah what have we seen in the past. How would this kind of role compared to something we would see ten ten or twenty years ago? Native folks would probably very marginalized and very Supporting supporting roles. Yeah Yeah and definitely not characters that had motivations in any you know that that were pertinent to the story line or name Casus ACIS right or evening exactly. That is something that we've been working towards. I think collectively as native people and It is happening but very slowly to Nancy. We started talking about the Hollywood site. But something bigger than Hollywood that you want people to know I always would like people to consider the fact that California actually has always been the home of indigenous people Historically pre contact pre European Times It actually the home to more tribes and and more people indigenous people than all of the United States put together and our presence here has always been very strong and it remains strong wrong today and in particular Tong. Land we have a religious venture that was kind of the hub of all of the surrounding Native tribe in southern California the significance religion on that was based in Long Beach and so that area has always been essentially a cultural the center for indigenous peoples. So it's just kind of not ironic but it's no accident that this is Centre for indigenous these people as it has been historically. Thank you so much for sharing with us today. Think you turn on.

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

"And in the end that trip was like two and a half years because ended up coming home. I was tired of traveling and I still had money left, and then I worked in New York for another six months, and then actually moved to Australia for year. And then that you're on Australia was traveled for three months, and then afterwards me and Molly traveled for year and a half afterwards could like living in stride around twelve and a half dollars. Luckily, luckily, I had a job there, and I was thinking good money spray, you visited dice countries. But from what I've heard about you is almost seems to be a story, everywhere that you go you, and Molly, for example, Weiqing out to AK47.'s being pointed at you. That was inbetween curious STAN and Zigic STAN, and we were hitchhiking, and I, I have done a little research, online and found out not to hitchhike. It was basically like this is going to take you three days. Don't do it. Just take a take a paid paid like a shared taxi. And then I was like, now, let's check we got to the border and we're actually we met these two other Lithuanians along the way and they were also hitchhiking and they were also a couple and we got to the border, we crossed over the border by foot, and then we waited an entire day and not a single car passed, not one. So it. Was we were at about three thousand five hundred meters at the time. So it was quite cold because you're you're up in the mountains, and at night was gonna hit negative for degrees. We, we had a tent, and we had sleeping bags, but they were rated to maybe two degrees, so we were going to really be called. And there was this little shack across the street. So we, we picked the lock on it, which just kinda turned it sideways in came out when we when we went inside, there was a highly of blankets up to our chins. So we were like, oh my God. This is the best so we slept in these blankets. We were super warm ten in the morning me. And the Lithuanian guy went to the river to, to get some water and the river was towards the border with the curious. Stan. So when we were there, I sought some, some soldiers walking in, I didn't think anything of it, and then we were walking back to shock. I was like, you know what I should probably make sure that the front doors closed in case. They're going to walk past the shack, and as always pushing it closed, because it was it was open, maybe an inch and a half. I saw some, some cammo behind it.

Harry was in his seat with metals because it was there was a guard of honour at Fiji airport SIV airport. So it was a very warm welcome. Then we went to this.
