Star Trek: Discovery: What to expect from the new season
"With. Michelle. Paradise Co Executive Producer and Co show runner of Discovery Welcome. Michelle, thank you. Thanks for having me. Excited to be here. So after two seasons of exploring the nooks and crannies of the Kirk, era star Trek discovery catapults nine hundred years into the future season three. It's a huge departure for the show. What can we expect to see from this big shake? A. Lot of new things. The world, the world that they come into is very, very different than the one they left there it's actually nine hundred and thirty years ahead. So what that does is it takes us a just beyond all established cannon. So really in terms of storytelling, it's fresh snow it's. We have whatever the world is that we that we wanna make of it so. I think people will be excited to see. We've got some new technologies that we're going to be introducing the season. We've got new characters that will be introducing the world as I mentioned is in is an Kinda different state and we can get into that in a second. But the thing I wanNA highlight is even as we're going nine hundred and thirty years ahead even as we're going beyond established cannon What is what was super important to us throughout the development of season three s make sure that we're honoring existing cannon. So the species, their relationships, all of those sorts of things that have been established on all of the series that came before us are things that we are continuing to honor. technology were continuing to honor even as we push it forward. The Federation. STARFLEET. All of these things that mean so much to everyone who loves track we continue honor those but going into the future allows us to look at these things in a new way and so. One of the things that people may find is That's species that we know from a series past maybe we interact with them in a different way. This season may be alliances shifted of folks are friends who didn't used to be friends or enemies who didn't use to be enemies. Going so far into the future allows us to do all of those sorts of things. And the new kosher honor show runner and congrats on the promotion What changes would you bring to the show? Oh Well I don't necessarily bringing changes. It's really I mean I I started in season two when I joined the show joined about halfway through season two. And toward the back of the season started working very closely with Alex Anyway as we were finishing up season two. So you know I feel like I've gained a good understanding of what he wants from discovery and you know as a group in season two, we are still finding. Really. What is the what is the right tonal mix for this show Because you know any season, one of the show is still kind of finding itself in that way and I feel like in season two, we really hit our stride with that. In terms of we've got the action adventure in via fax. We've got the character moments the emotion we've got you know fighting in. All sorts of mystery in all of the elements of the show I feel like in season to found the right balance. So for me coming in and working with him, it's really about maintaining that kind of balance in every given episode doing what this show does. So well, which is letting are actors, directors and everyone in Toronto shine in the way that they do and You know really just continuing to to try and. Make. The best possible version of tracker we we Cam Michelle. So well, let's get to the show. You you sort of teased trailers have shown and teased a grimmer future one where the federation doesn't necessarily exist or isn't around anymore hats that changed the show and I know you talked about how you want to stay faithful to the spirit of Star Trek. But we'll talk about the differences in how you're. able to play around with that. Sure. So to be clear, the federation is still there it's just It's been diminished in that something that are characters will come to discover as they go through the season and they'll They'll begin to learn the reasons why that happened and the the why of that, and then the drive to bring the federation together again, really becomes their main drive of the entire season. Ends when we looked at going so far ahead into the future We thought well, what what is what are the big things that could have about this world and that seemed like a natural place to go and. It seems like you know if we are going that far ahead, what what do our characters have? What do they bring to this new future that makes them uniquely able to have a significant impact on this new future and when you talk about a world where the federation has been diminished in some way, it's it's still out there just so everyone is clear. It's still out there. It hasn't gone away but but if it's not as strong as it used to be you have you have Burnham in Seru and all of our heroes. On discovery coming from a time when the federation was strong when it was the bedrock of everything and they grew up with that and they grew up with that feeling of security and optimism and hope and if they're coming into a world in which those things are are struggle for people, then our heroes are uniquely poised to help bring that kind of hope and bring that kind of optimism into this new future and inspire others around them, and so it it just felt like a great opportunity to be able to position them from center with all of that gun. The show has last two seasons wrestled with Continuity Canon, and making sure everything's working out in instep with previous series but hell freeing is it to get out of the constraints of cannon and really. Kind of go go out, go free with with what you really want to explore with star trek dare. I, say to go boldly where no one has gone before I did that I totally did sorry. it is. It has been very freeing. You know when? I when I joined the show in season two, we were right in the middle of that. The middle part of how do we answer these questions about hike that we knew from the original series? How do we answer some of these questions about spock widened stock never mentioned having a sister, all of these sorts of things and so that by the way that was really fun figuring out how all of that was going to work and how it fit into what was existing was really a lot of fun from story perspective. And now being beyond that is also fun and one of the really cool things that we've gotten to do is taken. We've gotten to take relationships that had been established previously, and then kind of change those up a little bit So the. You know the species you might expect to be friends may not necessarily be friends in this new future or vice versa It allows us to explore those new relationships explore species in new way explore worlds in new ways. So an into an again I, do want to say that that with all of that, we are definitely honoring the cannon that came before we're not just. To sticking things lender and tossing them all our place where we've been, we've been really thoughtful about If we're going to play with something, how do we play with? How do we adjust it? How do we shift those relationships? And do it in a way that will feel both familiar and new same time for audience Gotcha. Your Star Trek has always been a reflection of modern society, the avast this from season to season. But given the fact that there's a pandemic going on. There's a discussion about the role of race in America there's climate change field disasters take your pick of issues right now. Unfortunately but it turns discovery and season three. How does discovery reflect what's going on today? Well I can answer that in a couple of ways. In terms of just the the pandemic itself Alex I've talked about this. We could not have imagined when we wrote and shot season three of the show how much it would resonate today because obviously no one could have. Seen this coming a year year and a half ago when we were first working on all of this thematically in season three where we're looking at a lot about connection and disconnection, and that's very much where the world is right now. So I think it it resonates quite unexpectedly just just in terms of the stories that we're telling the thematic residents of those stories. And then in terms of things like are characters You Know Star Trek. has always always valued diversity and know gene roddenberry started it back on the original series having a diverse cast at a time when diversity was not the thing one did on television so. Making sure that we honor that continue that we're continuing that with the introduction of some new characters this season. and. Making sure that that we honor those characters, those voices and that we represent those on the show is super important to us. At C, Net, we've always asked now what? So that's what we call our new series of conversations about the future that is shaping up as we speak I'm Brian Cullin everyone has an interview series, but we try to be different posing a problem driving toward a concise answer and doing it all in about fifteen minutes that we don't waste your time. Check it out at senior dot com slash now what? And speaking of those characters gave update on where some of the crew Michael Berman's through what are they as the season begins. Sure. So when we begin the season or characters have are just coming through the Wormhole, which is where we left them. In episode two, Fourteen last year so they will they will come through land somewhere. I. Can't tell you where they will land or what they'll do. They'll get their or or will spoil that but I I can tell you that one of the first things they'll be looking for is did they achieve their goal because going through the wormhole was about saving life from season to? And, making sure that there is sentient life in this in this new future that they ventured is is the first question Alaska of course, the answer is, yes that's not a spoiler or we wouldn't have season three because there would be no people So they did achieve their goal. I can tell you that and and then it's a question of. Who are they now and what what this new season gives us opportunity to do is really explore all of our characters in a in a much deeper way. You know when they left season two, they left everything behind anyone who was not on this ship that was in their orbit their family, their friends everything that was familiar to them. They left behind and so they are very much a they're a family unit and connected in. A really new and much deeper way when they come into this new future because they are all they have and. Everything else was left behind so. They're kind of strangers in a strange land figuring out this new world as they go and and that gives us choices to learn a lot more about about who they are to challenge them in new ways to see how each of these characters individually will grow. And some of that will come out with a new characters we introduce You know this is not a spoiler he's in the trailer. Everybody knows David Jolla is joining us this season as as book, and you know here's a character who has grown up in this new world who's going to become a kind of a guide for Burnham once she lands and she's in this new future. and. Seeing him challenge her. We will get to learn new things about her and as our characters face unique challenges. Over the course of the season we'll get to learn new things about all of them. Great. We saw Harry Mudd we saw Sarah saw a bunch of figures from past star. Trek shows in previous uses discovery are can you tease or can we expect any other release cameos or you just sort of breaking free from can completely in just starting with something completely new? Well, I can't. I can't give anything away 'cause. Away but you know a lot of this season really is about. Seeing what this new future is all about and seeing what new characters come in So you know in nine hundred, thirty years ahead so There's a there's quite a time gap there I do WANNA mention I I don't know if you. Earlier of saying about the new characters, we also have the characters of. Deer Gray who are in the season Bluto Barrio Alexander. Tremendous and speaking to diversity of all when we talk about diversey on camera that's They are also representative of that as a non binary and transgender in real life, and then also being a non binary and a transgender character on cameras, well with these characters that they represent. So. that. All of that has been very, very important to us. Great in terms of the tech obviously seen at the tech site talk with. You. That's that's great. We love that you love seeing A. A little bit about that. What what are some of the if interesting fats of? This 'cause there are a lot of fascinating concepts you played with the previous using network time travel was a big deal last year what what what tech we serve guys embrace for this next season. There is some new tax that we will explore the season. I hesitate to say only because I don't WanNa give it away but but I will say that again in the tradition of honoring what has come before and then also pushing that forward. There are there are some new tech, the elements that we will see the season You know the the ways in which people interact with their ships might be a little bit different You know certainly there would have pollution in the the technology we use the things we hold the things we interact with on ships, all of those sorts of things and you'll start to see. Some of those things right away in the premiere episode of Season Three. So there have been a wave of Scifi shows that you know ground themselves in hard science I'm scared that something you consider star trek which Kinda plays a little bit fast loose with tack at like how real some that check is that is this something you guys are considering or you thought about a four season three already beyond it's something that we have absolutely done. And I I can't speak to. A to the season's when I wasn't here. But we have we have a science consultant Dr Aaron McDonald's She is fabulous. She is an astrophysicist and some Some audience members might be familiar with her she's She does a lot of star trek events and things like that where she talks about the science of Star Trek and we work very very closely with her on all of these things, and so if we have a science or tech thing that we wanna do you know as as writers will make it up and play in the sci-fi realm and we rely on her to help us. Tailor that to make something that obviously these things are not possible right now but we want to get them as close to future possible as we can. So she helps us with all of that. She gives us you know how many kilometers per second is something going? You know all of these sorts of things she helps with So yeah, for sure we we know that a lot of actual scientists watch the show and. We don't want anyone watching the show and going up man that's insane. So Aaron helps us with that guy well I ask this for most of the folks who deal the show I haven't had a chance to ask you. So I'll ask him in terms of the tech that's available in Star Trek. What which which bit of tech would you like to see in real life which would you could actually see yourself using own my gosh? Transporter. I would love to have a transport but I would I would want it to be a transporter that wouldn't just take me from here to the grocery store, but I wanNA transport could take me to to visit my loved ones or to go someplace else especially. Now since we you know it's very tricky to get on planes and. Do things like that I I would. I would want to I would want to transporter yet that that's a good one especially nowadays transport. Yeah. He can get around TSA airplanes in general totally like that Yeah I just need that pad built living room just walk into it. You go where you WANNA go. Yeah, that's that's it. For me. I would just say cheers of guest stars and notes it's nine hundred years in the but a Q. is not you know he doesn't age is pretty much more. Sane. Just out there for you kids shows up. Okay now. Awesome. Okay. Wow Michelle thank you for your time. Really appreciate season three of star trek discovery premiers on, Thursday yeah. So much and thank you everyone for watching. Hope you enjoy the show. It's
The Tricky Business Of Coronavirus Testing On College Campuses
"Today. We're looking at how one university is tackling the Corona Virus University of Illinois at her Bana Champagne. Elissa. This is a really big campus right Yep. They have about thirty thousand undergrads and it's massive and beautiful and green and kind of like exactly what you think college looks like. From the movies. Except this year of course, it's a little different. You know everyone's wearing masks on campus when you're walking around. and. There's all these signs to promote mask-wearing and social distancing. There's great. One that says it's a great day to practice sneezing. Smile with your eyes scream with your heart But. The big thing that I noticed on campus is that there are all these big white tents everywhere there, Cova testing centers. You drink. The campus actually started with seventeen places where you can get tested. So students go every few days to get tested. Confronted Denver and they're using saliva tests for royal do is they'll take your mask off. Open up the test tube and you will through into the. Into the test tube and you want the more the better is Dr. Hardest part always. I always think of Lemons in it makes like we have our saliva and my mouth. Well now, my mouth is full of saliva NAD warney. Thank you. I mean students told us that it was really hard to muster up all the spit. A that was emily gardy she and her classmates are part of this massive experiment. It's basically like become just a part of life. It's like so normal there right when I wake up, I put it in my schedule of things I need to do for the day and Cova testing is the very first thing on that list. So, Elizabeth testing every student like whether or not you have symptoms all of them. Yeah. That's right. They're testing UNDERGRAD staff Grad students everybody on campus and students need a negative result from that test to get into buildings on campus and to go to class So. It's the baked into the fabric of daily life. Wow I mean Elissa. That is I have I have not heard of this before the fact that you need to get a negative has to go to class that is wild like how how are they doing this? I'm confused on how you could do all of this. Yes I mean they're doing so many tests. A day and they're able to do it because they developed their test in house they processed their tests at the vet lab. They've repurpose to focus on these tests they're working pretty much twenty, four seven to get the results back. So they're able to get them back so fast like because they're literally working at three am in the lab like they're cranking this stuff out. And when we were there some days, they actually did about two percent of all the testing in the US done right on the campus y that is wild. Okay. It's wild. Yeah. So they're testing a lot like you know more than anywhere else. It sounds like what does that mean for controlling the virus? Are they able to have a relatively covid free semester their first semester? Well, that's what they were hoping I mean in just under two weeks of classes there were more than seven hundred positive covid, nineteen cases on campus. Wow I. mean that's a lot. Yeah. Probably more than they anticipated I imagine that's about what their original models had predicted for the entire semester. I mean not really surprised though it's a really big university. Yeah and it didn't surprise the students we talked to we happen to be on campus. When this big spike happened and the school announced lockdown. So we went to the quiet kind of see what students thought. Here's a freshman that we talked to name Noel Johnson like when I can tell you are like known as a party school. So I, knew that just because we were going to be taxing a lot, didn't mean that they were going to stop partying. So they're doing their best to keep everyone safe, but it's just. The system can't work if the people aren't working with it. So they put all of this money into testing do the university really not factor in the the students would be partying or or what. So they did anticipate partying Becky Smith, the epidemiologists leading the reopening plan. She explained that really they just didn't anticipate something else. So it's not necessarily partying. We counted for the fact that students will party. We just assume that they wouldn't party knowing that they were infected and infectious. Okay. So kids found out they were sick they were still partying. That's right. Yeah, and in one case that they actually publicized, they said a student hosted a party well positive
Extra safety scrutiny planned as virus vaccine worries grow
"The rush to develop both a covert vaccines and treatments to make the virus less deadly. First, Johnson and Johnson announced it was hitting the pause button on the clinical trials of its vaccine candidates. After one of the volunteers developed an unexplained illness. This is the second phase three Corona virus vaccine trial to be paused here in the U. S. And then Eli Lilly, announcing that it is holding clinical trials on an experimental antibody therapy to treat covert 19 over safety concerns. These are reminders that in spite of promises to rush the process is and the hopes that a vaccine or therapy might get us back to normal life soon, we still may have a long way to go. Jonathan Kimmelman is a bioethicist and director of the division of Ethics and policy at McGill University, where he studies Clinical drug trials. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me greetings from Canada. So ah! I mean to be really upfront with everybody. It's certainly the case that when you have these trials, it's not uncommon to have pauses for one reason or another. So that the people who are running these trials can determine whether or not if somebody gets ill. It's re even connected to their vaccine candidate or their their drug candidate. But that being said, because perhaps the expectation that we are on the verge of having a vaccine. We're in the verge of having as President Trump here, said last week a cure, referring to AH antibody therapy. Is that that expectation that makes this news disappointing. Yeah. I mean, I think drug development under the best of circumstances is incredibly difficult. We often encounter safety issues. We often find a drug or a vaccine. Isn't quite as effective in patients as itwas an animals or an early phase trials. I think what's different here is that there's a lot of scrutiny a lot of people that are watching these developments and a lot of expectations about these vaccines. Delivering on what they promise. So after something like this happens, and we could take the Johnson Johnson case is the latest. How long until you get back on track if you can. It's hard to say it varies First, Johnson and Johnson and whatever monitoring committees are overseeing those trials. Really need to make an assessment about whether there's likely, Ah cause and effect relationship between their vaccine. The safety events that could be really, really tricky to figure out oftentimes. This study might be redesigned a little bit, so there's extra careful monitoring to see whether or not those sneaky signals arise again. But it's not uncommon to put a pause to figure out what's going on and to re start the trial. With extra monitoring to make sure that this isn't happening again. Well, let me ask you about transparency. I and I know that these trials are designed to be conducted a certain way traditionally, and I'm using the word traditionally deliberately because these air far from traditional Time's so because these are not traditional times. Is there an obligation on the part of Johnson and Johnson with the vaccine on the part of Eli Lilly, with its antibody therapeutic? To be very transparent and up front with the public. About what? The nature ofthe these unexplained illnesses are. I get that they don't have to identify the person. But what is it that they're looking at? How serious Are these events and what are they actually doing? Yeah, I think it's really important to maintain transparency. So there's many different vaccine development efforts that are underway and it's really critical that these other parallel vaccine development efforts can learn from whatever challenges are rising. With companies that are pursuing similar kinds of platforms. So, for example, Johnson and Johnson's particular vaccine candidate is similar to other vaccine candidates that are being tested. Are we seeing the same kinds of safety events emerging, So I think that's one reason we can learn the quickest if we are sharing results as widely as possible. I think the other issue that's at stake here is fostering public trust. I think the more that you level with the public about some of the challenges and some of the safety concerns. The more likely you are to garner the kind of trust that you're going to need from the public toe, actually deploy these vaccines successfully. Differences that you see between Johnson Johnson, Eli Lilly, Obviously we have the vaccine, which is, you know, you hope to get what 30 40 50,000 people and you're giving placebos and then that Eli Lilly is supposed to be used. In addition to RAM disappear, so this will be used for people who are sick right now. Correct. Yes, it's a different kind of won is a treatment approach and the others are vaccine or preventive approaches. So is it harder or easier to know if there's a problem to differentiate when you have these different numbers appear between what's a real concern was noise. When you look at the two different things he's going to be used for. It's challenging. In both cases. It's probably a little bit more challenging with a vaccine because with the vaccines you have a lot of healthy volunteers, but a massive number of patients. And if you just take a random sample of off healthy volunteers give them all placebo. They're going to be safety issues that pop up. I mean, people get cancer diagnoses or M s diagnoses or other kinds of diagnoses all the time, so it could be really, really tricky. With that larger sample to really attribute cause unless you start getting a pattern, Jonathan Kimmelman, bioethicist director of the division of ethics and Policy, That's McGill University, now
Is LinkedIn ready for Black LinkedIn?
"Lipton has a reputation for being all businesses, but that has been changing recently especially in the last four months workers who are at home and trying to navigate racial upheaval in America are turning to Lincoln to talk about race and activism especially as it relates to work. Black. Workers say it's great that these conversations are happening on the Microsoft owned platform because so many executives and company decision makers are on Lincoln. Ashanti Martin wrote about this for the new. York Times. She said workers are being as she put it black any black black on Lincoln and lots of folks just aren't sure how to react. My first example in the article was that I e should Joseph made a post about companies who bring out there quote House Negro to deal with the difficult black employees visit tricky conversation because I could see how the word Ingo could be labeled as inflammatory. But the fact of the matter is that among black people understand these are these are conversations we have about the House Negro versus the Field Negro why does it matter for authentic black voices to appear on? Lincoln specifically as compared to say twitter. A lot of the discussion that you're seeing on link in is that how black people present themselves is often decided from a white perspective and I think the authenticity factor is a pushback is people demanding to be recognized for their full selves, but it is a very hard dynamic to overcome because you just see so much resistance to it and I think linked in exposes a lot of fat resistance. How Has Lincoln responded as well? I know one of the big problems that black users were having was that their content was. Hidden but they weren't being notified and it just lead to a lot of questions that linked hasn't really satisfactorily answered at this point. One of the things that give people cause for concern are the fact that linked in is an absolutely not diverse company. Three and a half percent of their employees are black. One percent of their leadership is black and only one point two percent of their tech workforces black who has programming these algorithms, and what are these algorithms and what is the machine learning to flag as well as the actual content moderators. The important conversations I think that people are really learning from our conversations about racism in the workplace and these people have a lot of followers. So what I think black professionals do not want to happen is to miss the opportunity to actually gain allies and to make a significant change in the workplace. I mean obviously, it coincides with what is happening in the in the country and do it also reflects conversations that are happening in the workplace to? I think it's hard to say because much of the professional workforce is remote right now in a way lengthened is one of the only ways to have conversations with colleagues. You don't have the chance opportunities to talk with your colleagues after meetings or during lunch breaks. So this is really the voice of professional life for a lot of people especially when it comes to talking about these topics, one thing I think is important to know is. That I think that these conversations are not ones that are easily had in the workplace just because of the dynamic of working with teams working face to face and maintaining a professional environment but I feel a sense of almost relief for a lot of black employees people of color other people have marginalized groups to be able to talk about these things and have their colleagues see these conversations that probably wouldn't take place in the physical office. I mean that's what I think is interesting is you're not writing about conversations in in some ways it's about. People Lincoln talking about workplaces and how they should be more. But what you say is that people are being, what did you say quote blackened black black. Lincoln Yeah that that what you're really seeing is is people being their true selves bringing their true selves to Lincoln in a way that didn't exist before and is. Making some white people uncomfortable, right Yeah. I have one of the questions that guided me as I was thinking about the article and doing interviews in writing it was. Thinking about black twitter and the impact that black twitter has had on our culture just in terms of simply the language the memes will also the Hash Tags Black Lives Matter Oscarssowhite, amend the conversations that come of those Hashtags, Meredith, Clark who I spoke to from my article. She's probably the leading scholar. On black twitter, she's writing a book about it She's a professor at the University of Virginia and she also talks about how black twitter really demands accountability. So in thinking about that impact, the black twitter has had on our culture American culture specifically I started to think about what if that same model was applied to black link thin and how it might affect just the presence of black people in offices across
Buffalo Bills: Super Bowl Contenders?
"Marcel. LOUIS-JACQUES I assume when you got into the business of NFL reporting, you always dreamed, of Tuesday night football. You know I. I don't even know if covered Tuesday night football back at the high school or you've. So this is truly a unique experience. Marcel louis-jacques covers the BUFFALO BILLS FOR ESPN It is the third I believe NFL game on a Tuesday in seventy four years, and we are talking right now on Monday and we're doing that because there has been this steady drumbeat of positive cova tests that we've seen from the Tennessee Titans, the opponent of the buffalo bills on Tuesday night. Over the last couple of weeks, we're talking twenty four positive tests between players and team personnel, and it feels still I presume like this game could still get canceled any time until the ball is actually kicked off. So what are you hearing from the bill side? Are there concerns you've heard from players or coaches about fears around the virus going into this titans game. First of all, we haven't heard anything officially from the bills since Thursday they've been in limbo throughout the week and the weekend and kind of letting that spill over into the contact they put out into the world. But from what we had heard from them, they just WanNa play the game. They don't WANNA lose out on that game check. They don't want to be punished for something that they didn't do in that. You understand you gotta roll with the punches there in this era, but it does At its core kind of feel like a punishment if you can't play and you can get paid because of what another team is doing, it's like when you turn in your assignments but the kid across the table from you keep talking in the whole class gets recess canceled. So there's a little bit of frustration there. But from what they tell us, they trust the league they are just kind of rolling with it. They're finding things out as we're finding things out and it's kind of a tricky situation. For everybody involved. So the flip side of that dynamic, the diligent student and the one that is not getting their work in the way they're supposed to the flip side is like okay well, then the titans should have to forfeit has there been any talk around bills camp around that being a thing they would like to see again, not publicly because they've they've kept that core belief that they just want to play the game back. So we spoke with Mike high on Thursdays one of the last available. Players that was made for us. He said, he didn't even realize postponing canceling Games was a possibility. He just always assumed that. Okay. If this guy test positive, then they're going to have to move forward without that player. So it does get to a point where you can't just keep pushing games back. You know there's only so many times you can do that, and especially if there's a case of explicit negligence from the top down in an organization than forfeiting a game has to be at least considered. It seems harsh but so was the not staying socially distant and not masking up in the facility and all these other allegations that have been levied against the titans.
Belarus: Dozens arrested as police blast protesters with water cannon
"Riot police in Belarus have deployed water cannon and stun grenades to break mouse protests in the capital. Minsk demonstrations gripped the country since Alexander Lukashenko's disputed election victory in August. But critics say the authorities are now routinely using violence to suppress political dissent will join in studio here in Zurich by monocle twenty, four security correspondent. Ben. Ben Who is also a researcher at the. Center for Security. Studies at eight here in Zurich and is an expert on Bellarusse good afternoon. Welcome to the roofing. Thanks can often and tyler. Let's start as this is something that we've been living with since August and like many things with the news agenda other stories have overtaken Belarus in away but bring us up to date on really what is happening. As we said, we've seen obviously what is seen as as a spike in violence by the government but where where do we stand right now? Indeed. This is the yesterday was the tenth Sunday of protests including election, Sunday? Exactly ten weeks ago that we've seen massive protests in better than we talking hundred thousand people or more particularly in the capital means but in other cities across the country, the thing is it's probably hasn't has hasn't been in the headlines as much as in previous weeks is that indeed, there has sadly not been any political progress that these this protest movement has achieved, the government keeps cracking down. On protests and this Sunday was yet again, more violent than previous Sundays. So we've seen disturbing videos of people being beaten up in the streets in prisons and hundreds of arrests set again including lots of journalists you mentioned that this is it's it's nationwide and but of course, obviously, the focus is probably on the capital. Are there other areas where you would say that also that there is more attention to you see greater agitation towards frontiers or anywhere else in the country? Sutton in the foreign policy realm, we've seen an escalation as in the EU and contacting you for ministers are discussing sanctions against betters on this very day we've seen this realm escalating in a sentence number of countries have not only enacted sanctions against Belarus officials. We've also seen nine countries currently pulling back staring Bassedas from as a signal of discontent. So that's certainly an escalation and that includes all of Belarus neighbors apart from Russia including, for example, Ukraine with which relations have so far been actually quite quite quite cozy, and this is certainly an escalation. Domestically, we actually shouldn't even talk about the tenth Sunday of protests which was yesterday, but maybe about the sixty four, th day of protests because we focus on these massive rallies in the capital as you said, but as local activism across the country and particularly local neighborhoods where people probably feel more safe from government repression and there's been for anywhere from concerts, small gatherings, distributing leaflets, hanging out flags, these white red white flags of the opposition that we've seen everywhere and even honking by bus drivers honking bye-bye trains. There's these many quiet signs of solidarity that Belarussians have. Given each other over these weeks. But indeed, no political progress whatsoever as someone who's spent time in the country what do you think the the political divide looks like I say political divide. I mean for the man and woman on the street are we talking about? Could you say there's a twenty thirty percent hard line know super pro Lukashenko backer of versus the rest of the country countrymen. Do you see people buy into the vision and he'd it's obviously very hard to say because we lack reliable survey data this moment but there is room about exactly these twenty to thirty percent which are still staunch supporters of Lukashenka, and that can. Be for very material reasons because they owe their positions in government jobs or the social benefits. This very government I would doubt though that these would be the people who would go out and rally in his favor because I think I've said it in the past as well about Belarussians that tend to be quite pragmatic because there is so little way to voice wants political opinion. that. They look they have the need to make ends meet and that certainly a factor. But what we can tell the shore is that there's a majority that is unhappy with the way the country is ruled and with his person in particular maybe less. So with the political system as such but certainly, with Lukashenka, he's lost all legitimacy in the eyes of majority of Belarussians. How they behave in their everyday life is certainly a different story. We we only see in the end, a minority that goes out to protest and shows their faces. Towards to authorities because obviously, they will become a target of repression and we've seen so many instances of arrests. Also of people being snatched from their own homes from the streets of from. So people are hesitating but the certainly majority that wants to see taint change and won't have any to emphasize everyone so far is peaceful apart from state security forces and that's quite remarkable given. It's been months since the protests that we haven't seen any escalation on that end if we turn to Brussels and e ministers, the discussion that they will be having today the the probably having it right now. Aside from recalling ambassadors, which is, of course, is is wonderful symbolism but I guess when we talk about potential sanctions, one would be thinking clearly economic where can the EU and well I, mean I guess. The. The first point we have to recognize as well that there is an a manufacturing base there are a number of big companies are you based companies that manufactured Belarus the not probably slapping not right at the front of or at least that made in Belarus on the front of their labels but nevertheless, you do have an economic base which is based on manufacturing what, what can e you do and how hard will the EU push on sanctions Indeed so so far we've seen sanctions against the vigil individuals to say we've seen in the past as well. So we talk ministers, we tone security heads of security forces currently not look Shaneco himself, but that may change, for example, German foreign minister, high comas also for sanctions against Lukashenko. Deed this very limited political signals that the US currently sending can send whereas economic sanctions as you indicate, that could particularly be restrictions for access to capital same as a sanctions against Russia. In certain areas those would certainly hurt the regime more particularly the. Elite that is still dependent on Lukashenko as well and the state-owned enterprises that are important factor in Belarus the problem with that, and that's really the pickle you for ministers are in first of all this hurts. European. Companies probably negligible but second, it hurts workers in Belarus themselves. People working in it in factories, they will lose their jobs, they will lose their income and the only access to capital to investment. will be left for Belarussian authorities will be. Russia. So this dependence on Russia is already. So high would only increase and that's part of the hesitation of EU officials indeed to enact such broad sanctions that will not hurt the public but also make Belarus more dependent on Russia and just before we go, you're finishing up a paper on the Belarus topic right now as well. will it be available for listeners to consume when it to hit screens? It will certainly be published anytime soon we haven't. Put pitcher with a specific institution it but it will be on Belarussian civil society, which indeed is very tricky because we've seen in a way the remake awakening of civil society these days but this decentralized nature is grassroots movement that we see is so strong. It's so convincing box decentralized nature lack of organization lack of centralized leadership is actually part of their weakness as well. So. We're looking at that how does protest move and translate into political force? Begnaud, Zog for you Bennasar, our security correspondent here in Europe
Stimulus Talks Resume, but a Deal Remains Elusive
"The White House is boosting its offer as coronavirus. Aid talks continue, But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says it's unlikely to be ready before Election Day. CBS's Nancy Cortez has more clearly been trying to pump the brakes here, because if Speaker Pelosi and Secretary Mnuchin do end up cutting a deal, then he's gonna have to be the one to decide whether he's willing to put something on the Senate floor that a majority of his own Republican members can't Court. That is a very tricky position for him to be in just a couple of weeks before the election
The Latest On municipal Elections
"A little bit about municipal elections of course in Brazil What what what's that? Give us give us the the big picture festival well, I voted a big deal because every single one of five, thousand, five, hundred. Seventy Brazilian cities will be voting for mayors and for councillors as well. So it's a big election, and of course, it's always as it happens to other countries it's a preview of the two, thousand, twenty, two presidential elections. So be interesting to see what's going to be the role of both sonar because of the beginning just a few months ago said, he's not going to get involved but now we're seeing that he's supporting a few of the candidates, but the thing is, of course, there's You know there's there's thirty or forty percent of the electorate that you know would vote for Bush scenario candidate but he's extremely toxic as well. the order. The same amount of number would never vote for a candidate supported by both sonar. Again I think it's going to be a very tough divisive election and again, Workers Party used to be such a strong political party Brazilian losing the appeal order. centre-left parties are starting to kind of gain more traction instead of the workers spiders. So that's an interesting thing about this election as well, and what do the polls say I mean just ready to? An association whether perceived or real with both narrow can be a boost or it can be a problem depending on where in the political spectrum you are. Do we know what the polls tell us and there's another interesting things on there in terms of the sorts of characters who are standing for action a big increase in number of military personnel. Explain also that we've talked about before absolutely and again this increasing military personnel of course, it comes more from the right-wing part but even the left they have some candidates and even in their names when people are voting is like major tone. Exactly. Or you know they they actually add they're tied to pseudo name. So people know exactly what they used to do but you know I was talking about another classic example here's some Paul the first South who someone is, is a hat on the polls he's supported by scenario is a TV presenters will kind of a populist even though he's ahead I'm not sure if he's actually going to win because there's he has a vast number of people that will never vote for him just because of his association with both Sonar, and in Rio you know we're loosing the blue. Shoe, quite a lot about this. Myself Valleys the current mayor and a former gospel singer as well. Again, he only have like forty percent of the polls. He didn't do a very good administration from. What I hear from people living there as well but he's the candidates have been supported by both sonar. I wonder if we're that can tell us a bit more house the reaction. Rio above that listen to I was going to bring you speak about Venezuela in a second but just on this point about it's both scenario I mean is he he sort of overshadow everything? Is it one of those things being Vanessa mentioned if we look at Rio these races, they're also have proxies for people's view about both in our that's certainly what it seems like sometimes looking from the outside. Yes. But also particularly that the main issue in. The minute always been it's totally economic, right so aside from all these elections and everything, it's really which parties are willing to offer some sort of boost to to the people living there and what we have. She had underneath the Bulls Nar administration in recent months, which allows cariocas from, which is, of course, this this payout to to the most deprived in the population, which is and so will very much depend on whether that sort of extended over the next few months to tidy through the election or not I. Think I think economic issue is a big thing. Here we go. There's some interesting aspects. Of this election as well so far we had the record number of candidates thirty, four percent of all the candidates are women. That's a record that doesn't mean that they will be elected sometimes they come from the smaller political parties as well, and for the first time we have candidates, they are either black or mixed race then white, that's a that's a first So even though we are under the administration that probably don't care that much about quotas or this kind of things but you know you see a little bit of change in Brazil perhaps the candidates are beginning to start to look like. The population in general. So that's an interesting aspect of this election and certainly something to welcome just briefly Fernando. Last point on. This is one of these areas where it would be a mistake to read too much into what happens in the municipal elections where we look ahead to the next general election or actually is quite a good indicator of which way the political winds on a national level also blowing I think we should definitely pay attention to this election in two thousand sixteen. We saw the rise of the right and kind of you could kind of understand Wassenaar was elected two years after. Okay interesting. Stuff listen. Let's cross back to you and I I mentioned Venezuela let's talk about this. You were living there I think some some years ago, but there's this really complex interesting legal battle that also comes right here to to London town as well. Tell us a bit more about this. Yes. So don't remind listeners the Maduro government launched legal action against the Bank of England earlier this year to try and force the Bank to release gold that the country has stored in the bank sports and England's quartered appeal decision that was made earlier this week on Monday isn't as definitive, some of the headlines had suggested. And they're sort of several layers to this. But essentially, the appeals court overturned a judgment which said that the UK had recognized opposition leader one guy do as Venezuela's rightful president. So in other words that local ruling is a victory for Maduro essentially sidelining any perceived power that Guido had as Venezuela's rightful president but Monday's decision actually means that this whole I mean it's a lot of money is a one billion. Dollars equivalent in gold. It will go back to the High Court in England and it will be up to a higher court to determine more definitively which of these two rival leaders is in charge in Venezuela and therefore he has control over the shiny gold bars which obviously tend to grab the column inches but I guess into this is a case where. This case speaks to a bigger picture dozen and it does also reflect this ongoing, very divisive political battle in in. Caracas. Can you just tell us what is the latest there what? What's the situation? Is it one of these things where again Everything that flows politically flows out of the economic strife, the country still during. Quite right I mean reading the actual ruling it disorders show unpick really the mess that Venezuela and the international community has got itself into with this to President Saga that's been going on since January twenty nineteen and the upstate new nothing the people who've been living there I mean in abject poverty fleeing the country in the millions and that has no proper healthcare system i. Mean when I was living back in twenty seventeen lesson learned today to do with this highly contagious virus. So the situation is critical as I say, having having an uncleared dramatic stance, own issues like the Golden, the Bank of England, which mode no doubt will go on for months only wasn't the the situation inside the country and creates stalemate when nothing moves on or improves. Tricky Times still ahead listen to it was good to hear from you, and if you're here in studio thank you. That's Markle's if you had noticed and Lucinda Elliott
New book tells story of 6 brothers with schizophrenia
"Your host Gabe Howard and calling into our show today we have Robert. Caulker Robert is the author of Hidden Valley Road which was an instant number one New York Times Bestseller and Oprah's Book Club Selection He is a national magazine awards finalist who's journalism has appeared in wired and the new. York Times. Magazine. Bob Welcome to the show. Hi Gabe I'm really glad to talk to you today. Your book is non-fiction. It's a true story. I'm GonNa read from Amazon Right now description the heart rendering story of a mid century American family with twelve children. Six of them diagnosed with schizophrenia became sciences greatest hope in the quest to understand the disease. Let's talk first about how you did the research for this book, you met the Galvin family. That's right. My career really took shape at New York magazine where I've written dozens of cover stories and feature stories about everyday people going through extraordinary situations and I really am drawn to these stories of people who manage crises come through difficulties I find it inspiring and I'm always looking for a deeper issue running at the bottom of her in. So when I met the Galvin family I was amazed, this is a family that's been through so much. Misfortune and also so many challenges and so much scientific mystery medical mystery I I met the two sisters they're the youngest in the family there were twelve children they're the only girls and they now are in their fifties. But when they were children, six of their ten brothers had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. The family immediately became interesting to scientists and researchers were trying to get to the the genetic roots of the disease. But before that happened, there was tremendous amount of denial, a lot of stigma that forced the family into the shadows, and so it became clear that by telling their story, maybe we could inspire the general public to sort of remove some of that stigma from mental illness particularly acute mental illness like schizophrenia, which so many people still have difficulty talking about and to anchor this in time they were diagnosed in the seventies. I'm horribly bad at math, but they were diagnosed fifty years ago. So there was even more stigma more discrimination less understanding. It was harder to get diagnosed absolutely and also more of a reason to hide because so many people in the establishment were blaming the families themselves for the mental illness blaming bad parenting in particular, blaming bad mothering, and then of course, the medical treatments, the pharmaceutical treatments were blunter and more extreme back then and they were just coming out of the period of lobotomies in shock therapy insulin coma therapy is all sorts of drastic treatments which are now. So questionable now the parents are dotted Mimi, Galvin their mom and dad did mom and. Dad Have Schizophrenia or any mental illness or was it just their children dated not have schizophrenia neither did anyone in their immediate families and I think part of the mystery of this book is how does schizophrenia get inherited because we now are certain that there is a genetic component to schizophrenia, but we don't know exactly how it is inherited. It's not parent to child it's not recessive. It's not like you need to people with schizophrenia to produce a child schizophrenia it Kinda wanders it meanders through families in a very tricky way and there was a lot of hope pinned on this family that they would help shed a little light on that mystery as well. What were some of the most surprising things that you learned about mental illness and will really schizophrenia from your time interviewing the Galvin's I was surprised by almost everything. But my biggest surprises were that to my understanding of mental illness was that it was about brain chemistry and that great pharmaceutical drugs were coming online that through trial and error and a lot of work. Perhaps, we'll be able to correct your brain chemistry problem and then whatever you had whether it was anxiety or depression. Or bipolar disorder that it would be corrected and that you would become essentially cured although cured is the wrong kind of word for like remission or recovery. Right what I learned was that schizophrenia this isn't really true at all that the drugs that they have the antipsychotic drugs that are very popular that are prescribed so much for schizophrenia, they are basically the same drugs that have been prescribed for fifty years. They may have different names derived from the same classifications of typical neuroleptics or. Narrow left ix and that these drugs are essentially symptoms suppressors. Help a person control their hallucinations or delusions or it might make a patient less erotic and more manageable as a patient in a healthcare setting but it doesn't turn back the clock. It doesn't necessarily add functionality. They really are just sort of good enough in terms of controlling the population but not really the miracles that we look at when we talk about antidepressants for instance, and that was a huge surprise it sounds like that. You didn't know a lot about schizophrenia before you started working on this book. Is that true? That's right. I mean I knew enough to know that it didn't mean split personality multiple. Personality which is. Like the big misnomer that because of the way we use the words get. So there's a Latin root skits which refers to split, but really it was meant to mean a split between reality and one's perception of reality a person with schizophrenia tends to wall themselves off from what is commonly accepted as reality I a little bit and then a lot and sometimes that means delusion. Sometimes that means to lose the nations and sometimes it means being catatonic sometimes, it means being paranoid and in fact, that was the other huge surprise for me for schizophrenia, which was that it isn't really a disease at all it is a classification. Syndrome. It's a collection of symptoms that we have given a name. And I don't mean to sound too nebulous or mystical and talking about There is such a thing as schizophrenia. It's just that it may be several different things in that forty years from now, we might have removed the word schizophrenia from our lexicon and we might have decided that it's really six different brain disorders with sixty screen types of symptoms, and we have found ways to treat those six different conditions differently that was another huge surprise to me. When doing your research for the book? Obviously, you spoke to the family. Did you also speak with medical doctors and schizophrenia researchers and people in the medical field? Yes. Absolutely. My initial conversations were with the family themselves who after many years of difficulty were ready to come forward and talk about everything that happened to their family in a very deep and profound way. But of course, in the back of my mind I was thinking well, how specialists this family for all I know there might be thousand families with lots of kids where half of them have schizophrenia this, this might happen all the time. So I didn't immediate round of checking talking. To major figures in scholarship of schizophrenia in the history of science, but also the treatment of schizophrenia and just to say, have you heard of this family? What would you say if I told you a family late this existed how typical do you think it is? Do you know the doctors who have treated the? Stanley because I knew their names as well are those doctors on the level? Are they quacks and everything really checked out? This is a family that is definitely unusual extraordinarily. So in terms of the numbers, they were important family to study for their time and they did help move the ball forward in a genuinely valid way an. Way So. There's a lot of hope in this story as well. Are there many families that have that many children with half of them being diagnosed with really any severe and persistent mental illness or or even just. This is a a big question that I pursue in the book itself because Linda Lee, one of the researchers who studied this family was actually a collector of genetic material of what she called multi plex families, which is families with more than one perhaps many instances six mental illness, not just among siblings but maybe parents and aunts and uncles and grandparents she made it her job in the nineteen eighties. Nineties was to collect data on as many. Multiplex families as possible. So they're out there but even in that World Galvin families extreme it's it's hard for anyone to think of any other family with twelve children where six of them had this diagnosis
'Wonder Woman' director warns movie-going could become extinct
"Tug I took a walk down Hampstead High Street, yesterday, and it was utterly heartbreaking. So many clothes shops. This is something we're just GonNa see more and more of his mood. Yes, I think. So unfortunately and today we're also dealing with a grim warning about the future of cinema and you can decide for yourself whether this is overly pessimistic enough. But Patty Jenkins who sent him a lovers well know as the director of the recent wonder woman movies things movie going actually going to the cinema is facing a real threat of extinction. Now, this because her latest installment of the wonder woman franchise has been delayed three times during the coronavirus pandemic and it's worth remembering that just in the past week the delay of another big movie franchise that James Bond until next year. sparked the UK and US cinema owner cine worlds to actually just give up trying to operate during this pandemic and it's closed at cinemas temporarily. But for the foreseeable another UK chain Odeon is now only opening at weekends I what Potty Jenkins is worried about is that actually if cinemas do closed and during this periods that the process won't be reversible, she thinks we could lose. moviegoing at for movie theater going forever, and she's one of a number of big Hollywood directors harassing the US government for financial aid for cinemas in the US. Anyway. But I guess as you quite rightly pointed one of the dangers of this crisis business close even temporarily or even if they get state aid, will they actually come back because you know cinema is not as essential. As something like aviation at Cinema, the actual act of running and what they call a movie theater is not a super profitable industry. It's actually the film producers who gets a very large share of your ticket price, and that's why the popcorn is. So bloody expensive and of course, producers have the option of bypassing Simas going straight to the net fixes of this world aretha finding. Other ways to monetize by going straight to viewers in their homes whereas cinemas actually need movies to come out to get people through their doors molly through there till. So it is a very, very tricky time for
"Back in Twenty Sixteen Semaj Arash had day job at the time I was working for a race equality charity but he always had an eye out for a story. The charity he was working for have been doing all kinds of research into the hostile environment an impact the government's immigration policy was having on various areas of life. Now, this was before the wind rush scandal broke said, it wasn't really much discussion going on about this. But Samir was interested in finding out more. At the end of two thousand sixteen. I started looking into data sharing agreements that been I. Think one that was nine about the time which was around the around healthcare data being shed with the heightened office. Then around the same time that was issue around education data. So the the people census essentially kind of being being shed potentially being used to target families because they had enrolled, they're in school. So we knew of some official organizations sharing information with. Authorities. But what about the please he wanted. So. I had a theory which was that. I wanted if victims of crime would be caught up in in this system as well. Man You police would work with immigration officials when handling the perpetrators of crime he wondered if the same was true for those who were victims of criminal acts, this was too big a topic to look into on his own after all he was working full-time in his day job. He needed help any new just who to contact. I'm Natalie blamer relaunch journalist. Nazli was working politics, dot co DOT UK and the powerful report about immigration authorities targeting people who are homeless. She hadn't spoken to Samir before, but his was a name she recognized. Followed the twitter and I think we've had a few interactions on twitter and it was shortly after I published The holiness story that he contacted me and said I'm looking into data share in between different organizations in the Home Office would like to. Do that with me and he explained he was he had two full time job and he was quite limited in how much she could do during the day. and. It was. It was it sounded really interested in it was. You know the areas that I was interested in. And so I agree very quickly and so Nutley and submit decided to start working together sharing tips divvying up the workload. We've naturally making calls during working hours and submitted digging away the data when he could we have a very good workmanship we've actually continued to work together since then really. Because I think we have different. Skill sets and. Different strengths the allow us to work together and sort of. US each of other's strengths are for things that we might found more tricky. Their first port of call was to draft some freedom of information requests. They wanted to ask the police if and when they worked with immigration officials. So we sent off some a couple of freedom. Of Information Requests one to the the mats and one to greater. Manchester Police as two of the logic of police forces but these requests a tricky they take research to get them. Right. Yeah I a long and harrowing experience from information requests like light might based. Let's say you have to think through what the piece of information or document that your looking for is, and you have to define it as clearly a narrowly as you possibly can. Especially, if you ask you about something which the places holy that information might find embarrassing that will find any reason possible till you are to delay you or come back and say, Oh, can you can you defy refined your question more say we specifically asked about about policy What is your? What is your policy on this? And if possible, provide the documentation. They waited. And waited. And then the response came back urban but thinking, Gotcha now this is this is significant. The. Met Police had admitted through the response that they would pass on details of by victims and witnesses of a crime if there were concerns over their immigration status. Migrants support groups reacted with shock warning that people would be scared to report crimes. If they feared, they could be deported as a result. The pair of journalist published their story on Politics Kerr UK, and they kept going. Natalie. Heard about a troubling case where Brazilian woman who was working as a sex worker was robbed at knifepoint by five men. When she went to the police to report the crime she said, they focused more on trying to prosecute her for the sex work. and. When she returned to UK after a holiday abroad she was detained. She was then facing deportation after you sort of instead of being treated as a victim she that case was turned and she was then being treated as a an immigration offender
Trump abruptly ends coronavirus stimulus bill negotiations
"President is saying that he is pulling out of negotiations with the Democrats to try to find a covert economic Relief bill. What do we know about that? Well, in a surprising move, the president decided to go to Twitter to announce that he unilaterally was pulling out of the Kobe 19 relief negotiation and the issue here is the president essentially is saying that this was a waste of time and that this should not be going on the president tweeted that he was lashing out at Democrats, and he also made a promise that I want to share, he said. Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 trillion To bail out poorly run high crime, Democratic states money that is no way in related to cope in 19 Emilie. After I win, I will pass a major stimulus bill now it's not surprising that these talks broke down because they've been going on for weeks and Democrats Republicans, we're very far apart, but it isn't surprising that the president is deciding that he's going to do this on his own. This comes hours after the Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell said. If he was urging Congress to pass more relief funds because stimulus while the economy rather while doing wow, needed more help from Congress, he said that it would be tragic, possibly if the recovery did not get that help. It is, of course, that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is saying he agrees with the president and backing out of these negotiations. The other thing to note is that there are a lot of Americans who are really worried about whether or not they're going to be able to whether this economic storm through this pandemic and their political strategist who say that the president here is on really tricky ground because Democrats have been saying that he is really focused on himself, and now these negotiations, and here now he's saying, I want the Supreme Court nominee more than I want relief for millions of Americans.
It's Time to Double Down on All That is Good!
"He's solar has its Lynn. Gosh I'm so sorry I left. y'All hanging last week Yep I went a little. Am I A and I'm going to tell you why a little sweaty this morning because I'm nervous and no, I haven't relapsed. There's nothing like that. It's more about what's happening in the United States of America where I live I know I have a lot of people listening who don't live in the country that I live in. So I'd be surprised if y'all hadn't heard about what happened last night and that is our first presidential debate. As we? Go into the final weeks before we vote for the president of the United, states don't worry I'm not going to get all political here. What I want to talk about today is how it is affecting this stuff that's going on in two thousand and twenty all of it including the race relations and Covid nineteen and the economy and what seems to be a little bit of a problem with our democracy in the united. States how it's affecting me, and that's why I'm a little nervous because I want to share with you what I've been going through in the hopes that we can all get through this together. So going back to last week, I have not been sleeping well, I. Think I've mentioned this a couple of times on previous podcast in the later months of the summer, but it's really been a combination I think of what's been happening. You know with everybody in the United States in the world around Cova da and uncertainty, but it's really gotten to be a peak for me because. I am frustrated and I'm not sure what to do with all of this Energy Aka frustration as I explained before in previous episodes I, know a lot of it has come from or at least not a lot of it but some of it has come from where I live. So I know I have control over that I'm changing that up I'm really excited about the move that I'm making to this wonderful development and a new place to set as my home, my home base a that's not all of it. The conundrum, which by the way isn't that a great word. Gosh. Okay. As an aside, it was also one of my favorite wines that I used to drink long ago just to get that out there the conundrum that I'm dealing with right now is okay what's going on with me in terms of how I'm feeling about all of this sustained uncertainty and damn what can I do about it? Like many of you I'm tired of this really really tired of not knowing the right steps to take who look for for leadership who to believe you know what to do in my day to make it more effective for me to stay healthy it just seems. Like one big mess, I am truly tired of having conversations with people that end in dispute not because we don't like each other because we have different values and different ideals of the world. All of that is okay. I know how to make boundaries around that. But Damn it's been really difficult this year because we're getting slammed with. So much of it. It being choices that we have to make day in and day out without any real guidance exhausting it's fatigue it's overwhelm and we have to figure out how to get back up from this we really do and I don't mean to sound like. Old Nineteen eighties. Cheerleader Lynn at all, that's not who wanna be for this podcast. Really. Not who I want to be in life anymore when I'm looking at to help me is to dig deep. To figure out how am I gonNA lift myself out of this conundrum this tricky confusing and difficult problem that I find myself

I just like to put more into debt, and I just can't afford to leave my job because if I do remember Mothers are in an impossible situation. They're doing their own job, their child care workers job and their Children's teachersjobs. Professor Jones see Williams is founding director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California's Hastings College of the Law. What's your call volume like now during the pandemic versus what it is in normal times. Absolutely unbelievable. We've had a 250% increase in people calling us Washington did provide some early relief for families. But many people were ineligible and most of that money has already run out. And while plenty of fathers are struggling A new study shows that women are almost three times more likely than men not to be working due to child care demands because of the pandemic. 57% of Mom's now report, depression and anxiety, compared to only third of Dad's 80% of Mothers now say they're doing most or all of the housework and homeschooling. It's almost like people were just holding it together. And the whole infrastructure is crumbling. Well, you know, we were already in a crazy situation in the United States. I mean, we're the on ly industrialized nation with no paid parental leave. It was a Rube Goldberg machine from the beginning, and it just broke. You may have seen the funny images of multi tasking moms. But Williams says many mothers are facing serious indifference or even hostility from employers. All of them are feeling really, really embattled right now. I was working for a fortune 50 institution. I was working as one of the leadership in that organization. Cyprus Security Department. But it all collapsed. In March, Daniel Mia's company told everyone to work from home because of covert 19. Her baby sitter could not come to the house her husband helped but has a high pressure job, too. Mia had most of the responsibility for baby Logan. How did the company react toward this circumstance that you're in? I worked in a primarily male dominated environment. You know, I started noticing comments here and there that suggested people we're not comfortable with it having the baby on a call with me, or like bringing him onto a conference line. Would make people uncomfortable. So I'm comfortable because they didn't like seeing a baby in a work environment. I just kind of received veiled questions like you know, one does he eat early this year ever sleep, and I also felt bad because I wasn't dedicating the same amount of attention and care that normally would to the staff. It's the caller to the meeting because I was preoccupied with him. It got it got tricky, very quickly. Soon she found herself left out of key meetings. And actually, someone made that comment to me of we're just not gonna invite you because you're off doing mommy duty. Did you ever talk to superiors in the company and say Look, I'm struggling here. Can you give me some relief? I did, and the response was You have to do these things or your career's in jeopardy. And that to me felt like a threat. She finally resigned. But you couldn't struggle anymore. And that's what kills me. Truly. This was a job that I had worked for. For 10 years minimum. Busted my butt to get there. I was better. I was really angry. Mia was able to find a new family friendly job at a similar salary, but not everyone is so lucky. I'm still unemployed. Been a few months and I've been looking every single week. The San Diego insurance company where we saw the Rios was an account exec switched a work at home just as her one and four year old pre school shut down. Her husband's an essential worker gone all day. She says. Her manager immediately laid down the law. He right away would say I do not want to hear. Kids on client calls didn't want to hear that. Anyone here? I'm on client calls or C. M. Wright. He would just question you know my availability, which I didn't understand because I was available all the time. She says a male colleague with Children was treated differently. But no matter how hard she tried, she says her boss would not let up. And I said, What else do you want me to do? Do you want me to lock my one year old in a room on his own? And he just responded. Fear up. So figure it out, and I was just crying on my way. So I, um Reported. The discrimination Tio HR. I'm via email. And a week later. They let me go. And I believe it is 100% retaliation for bringing this up because there's I've was doing my job, so
How the Supreme Court Operates
"Professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law and executive director of just security and senior editor of the Law. Fair Blonde. He's here to talk about the U. S. Supreme Court from how the nation's high court operates to the confirmation process for Supreme Court. Justice is a process that will be front and center. Throughout the month of October. Steve thanks so much for the time and let's start At the very beginning, The founders set up this novel system of government involving three different branches, one being the judicial branch. What was the vision that they articulated an article three of the Constitution really, the core purpose of the judiciary. Yeah, I mean, the very fact that it's a separate article actually is the beginning of the story because in England, you know from which we were breakin the judiciary was not independent. The court was called the Katie's sketch on Go. The founder's put the courts in their own article entirely because the founders thought that a critical part of preserving our rights was to have an independent judiciary that could in appropriate circumstances after the checkup on potential charity of the majority, So from the start, the idea was that we would have Independent judges who were not politically accountable, who, in appropriate cases could have the power to do the obligation to strike down democratic laws. But democratic laws that were nevertheless in violation of the Constitution. Supreme Court always seems to be a hot button issue. These days, Some people cast their ballots in presidential races specifically because of the possibility a seat on the bench could open up. Has it always been that way? It really has been followed. I mean, I think you know there are periods in American history, where the court with a huge issue, I mean the dread Scott decision for the Supreme Court really goes out of its way to put its stamp on the institution of slavery in 18 57 became a galvanizing part of 1st 18 58 Senate race in the Lincoln Douglas debates and then the 18 50 presidential election. But I think what's different about today is that The court look so much like the rest of the country that you know the court really is divided and polarized into much of the same two camps as so many of us and that's why I think folks tend to see high profile cases before the court in such partisan terms and, you know debates over confirmation. Such partisan turns because increasingly looks like the court is just another institution divided into two parties based on who's in charge of the time. There've been some discussions. As of late over the amount of justice is that should be on the court or whether or not justice is should serve for life may be implementing term limits. How are those decisions made in the past and what flexibility does Congress have to potentially make changes to the court? Yeah, In the side of the court is perhaps the easier one Because there's just no question that the court is to some degree. It lied to Congress is controlling that that you know, Congress has overtime. Barry the size of the court at the Fountain, There are actually six justices. We had many of 10 for a short period of time in the sixties before settling in the current number of 1918 59. So you know there's nothing unconstitutional. I've got a statute that would say, added 234. C To the court. I think the tricky part is, you know, if you start down that road, then you Republicans the next time they're in charge at their own speed to the court, and what does that do for the court legitimacy in the long term, But at least it's a matter of pure constitutional law is up to Congress. As on there's at least one justice. How many more than one of the question of legislative grace On term limits that met here because we've actually never seen Congress, you know, try to do anything other than allow life tenure for justice is the Constitution doesn't say like tenure, it says, you know, the justices are allowed to hold their offices during quote, good behavior, unquote. But of course, you know that doesn't answer the question of what it means to hold their office. Could Congress give them different responsibilities? Good Congress keep paying them, but tell them to do nothing. These are questions that Supreme Court's never really had to answer because A question Congress hadn't really ever provoked. So you know, at least on that one. I think we're in a bit more of uncharted territory. The purpose behind the lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Why did the founders believe that was necessary? Yes, it was a big part of independence that you know when you have a judge, say who don't serve in the five or 10 year term, You know, here. She might be making decisions for reasons other than because they think they're the right decisions They might be, you know, looking over their shoulder at what their next job is gonna be there. They might be trying to sort of curry favour with whoever's in power tow. You perhaps be reappointed reporting to different position. So the founders thought that one of the ways of ensuring independence was job protection was making clear that You know, you don't have to worry about finding other jobs. You don't have to worry about having your paid diminished if you hand down unpopular decision as a way of just saying it, like the judges and justices would not be beholden to political pressures. Especially when Nick an unpopular decision, and one other area where Congress has control over the judiciary, including the Supreme Court is impeachment power. Certainly not something you see exercised very often, but the power's there, right Yeah, I mean, like any other federal officers, judges and justices there. Seven to impeachment. There's only been one impeachment of justice on the Supreme Court in all American history that you know five when the Jeffersonians tried to impeach arch Federalist Samuel Chase of and it failed, mostly because it was preceded. A political future is not a good one. But there are lower court judges who have been impeached fairly often for I think what we would all agree to it is clear misconduct. So you know there are checks on the court. And Peter did one of them. You know, Congress has at least some power over the jurisdiction of the federal courts decide which cases they got to hear. Congress control most of the budget of the federal court, So it's not that the court unaccountable that the accountability comes in different ways and not necessarily the ballot box. And that's part of how we ensure that courts are able to protect the rights of minorities, which is perhaps the most important function. I'm joined by Steve
How to approach mixed planting
"Going to stop with question of the week this week which comes from Jill who says they're an avid outdoor gardner but new to house plants. Well, welcome to the world of into Gardening Jill good to have you on board Jill has what they described as possibly odd scenario. ooh, I do like an odd scenario. Okay. Let's look at the details. Due largely is an ideal candidate to start her own indoor jungle because she has a yawn dying studio because she's got big pans of water steamy throughout the day. It's warm and humid a you thinking I'm thinking listener. Yes. I think Gills GonNA end up with a lot of house applause before long a negative attitude he love that warm. Humid. Environment Jill says that not really knowing much about house plants I partied a prayer plant state plant, and variegated fighters all all in the same large pot. All seem to be happy on putting up new growth but the plant is getting massive. Should I plant them in separate parts or just let them fill on their in? is now an okay time to report or should I wait? Jill is in the northeast. U S Well Jill. What a lovely problem to have. I am all for mixed planting. It's something that comes up now and again in the show, we really should talk more about it because it is a really great way of creating beautiful house plant displays. Now the plans that you're talking about in your particular arrangement, you've got a snake plant science. Very or well a to use the correct genus name although account quite come to terms with that yet APPRAI- plot. So presumably, something from the Miranda, we don't exactly what but I guess actually whichever one it is the answer will be the same and a variegated. Lakers. How will they live together well, obviously for the moment that living together very well because that putting on growth. On the PEP PREP LOT is starting to do its thing get enormous. So what should still do I think in the long term the snake plant of that trio is the planck that may be the least happy with that setup. Snake plants can cope with a huge spectrum of conditions, and that's why they're so popular as houseplants but ideally, they will like slightly free draining potting mix than the other two. On also love a good exposure to full sun I know lots of people suggests snake laws for the deepest shade. But really if you can give him son and a good loss of heat in the summer, he do get much better growth and results and it opens up the possibility that the plants will flower which is. Nice because Sansa very flowers are lovely. I think going into the autumn full for you. Americans out there that it's probably fine to leave the plants as they are for the winter nearly worry really is that you'll need to water the Maranta more than the sense of area would like. It's a tricky one. I would say probably the if if the morente getting really really big, it is worth taking the time now to separate out the plots and Redo the the companion planting thing. But with slightly different combination I would take that sets up apart. The sense of area that would look great with other sons various, you can have a mixed planting various sense varies in the same big part I always think that looks amazing. So you can have one of the tool sense of areas, cylindrical or Tryphosa. And then around it, you can have some the bird's nest types like honey i. so think about that as one option I know probably involves buying more plants or you could just pop the sensor very up separately and when you do that, you can give it a bit of a grittier mix and the other two. Then you'll Miranshah because she could keep those in a mixed planting and replace the sense of area with something like a low growing Tonia or low growing Pyla the heart leaf him united's Ariff. Olea. We could have something like my layer Lebron says trailing pilot tralee on the side of the pot. You may be wondering why I'm recommending during this reporting. Now at the end of the growing season, oftentimes people panic about reporting at this time of year. With? CACTI. I'd be cautious about doing it. You have to report CACTI and succulents. Now then make sure the potting mixes pretty much just slightly as opposed to soaking wet because the plants are going into their dormant period on the whole but I think with most of these plants which are tropical subtropical plants, they're kind of used to growing all year round and right now they will be fine. The one caveat is don't put them into an enormously big apart try to keep the pot size roughly the same. So those route bulls aren't surrounded by a massive swathe of unrooted compost but I think it should be fine. And offsets the risk of the sense of various rotting over the winter because you'll have into water the Miranda more than the sense of various needs. When? You're setting up mixed planting. The main thing to think about is what will go well together. They've obviously got to be it all in the same setting. So cheese plants that all like full sun or like partial shade and also I think about how much moisture they like around the roots. All these things will make the difference between success and failure when it comes to mixed plantings and bear in mind that you know it's not a permanent solution probably once every one or. Two years you'll have to be breaking them up and moving things on some will grow much faster than others. These arrangements don't last forever, but they do look fantastic. So do give it a try and hope Jill that that helps you have some ideas for your particular arrangement. I'd love to see a photo of your yawn studio and all the plants in it because it sounds amazing.
Stepping Into Your Power At Work With Executive Coach Marie Garvey
"Okay Sara it's time for from the treadmill desks of or we talk about what's most pressing and our work psyches and this week it's how to empower ourselves in the workplace and we are so excited because today we're talking to Marie Garvey who an expert on this subject Marie Garvey President of the Garvey Group has spent twenty years as a strategic communications, consultant media, spokesperson media, and presentation trainer and executive coach Marinas helped filmmakers CEO's actors American generals prepare for media, interviews, presentations, and public forums. Her recent clients include Pixar NBC Universal The Walt Disney, company? Marvel. The. Los. Angeles angels of Anaheim and others in twenty eighteen. She founded crazy busy women and Balance and focused her executive coaching help women create time connection enjoy outside of work without sacrificing success through an in-depth eight week program. During covid. Nineteen Marie launched the training series online to reach women where they are and changed their lives with a step-by-step Transformational coaching, program. Yes Marie Welcome. Welcome. Thank you. Thank you for having me. Well, I have been wanting to sit down and grill you forever because you are an executive coach to a good friend of mine who works for a very large. Company and you have totally impacted how she feels work I love hearing that it just makes my day to hear that and she is a rockstar she really is and I love just I grill her I'm like, what did she say this week so first of all, tell us what is an executive coach because I just love this idea? Yeah. Well, it's many things I mean really it is bringing somebody to their highest potential because oftentimes what our skill set is that makes us really good at what we do for a living as we move up or get into different environments. We weren't necessarily trained to be awesome managers are awesome communicators and all of these things. So it's really just building a new tool set as you grow and company and in most places it specifically. In the company that we're referring to, it's about building executives up because they see great potential in them. It's not necessarily as a lot of people think the some cases there are fixes that need to be made like somebody will hire you to say this is a real barrier for their growth but in a lot of cases, it's just having them realize their potential. and. Everybody can't be good at everything and a lot of times they're their original career as they made their selves up the ladder got themselves up the ladder you need different skills to navigate as you take on more was very true for us because we're writers and then it's like as you become show runner, it's entirely different skill set and learn on the job. So I wish we'd had your health way back. And everyone goes through that growth pain and having a toolbox at each stage in your career become so much more important especially at this stage in our careers of owning yourself, you know and not doubting yourself as you did when you were working your way up and got all that feedback, they confused you. Now it's time to really own yourself and with that comes freedom. Yes and I think for. Particularly Women in positions of power we're often perceived differently than men are in the same position. Do you have like top three pieces of advice for women who who are? Who wanted just improve how they're perceived at work? Yeah I mean that's an awesome awesome question because you know women and power is a tricky thing. We're perceived very differently. We're judged very differently and we've again as we've been told so many different things as we've moved up in our career in feedback and often times were trying to. Emulate that or or be something that we're not as we're exerting power because power is not a comfortable place often for women. Because we know we've been judged several times sir career and get to that place of executive or or at that. Place in our career where we all are you know it really is and what we what I really teach. Women is stripping all that out and just coming through as yourself because there's a huge difference. I. Think there's this horrible perception of brand. What's your brand and this is how you dress. It's how all this stuff versus your presence and we've all seen somebody walking room man or woman, and they own the room. Yeah and you don't even know what their titles but you know they're important. How did he do that and? That's presence in. So often men men can own that so much easier than women because they know their strengths, they own their strengths and they don't apologize for their weaknesses. They're
Bring on the snack cake cereal
"Welcome to the Empty Bowl might name is Justin mcelroy and I am a serial enthusiast. My name is Dan Gilbert and I am a serial ethnographer in the sense that I know the cereal culture in the overall breakfast. Zeitgeist well enough to understand the impact of some of the stories we're about to talk about today. that's. So exciting we have so much going on this first news story Dan. I have to tell you. I'm thrilled over here over on this end. I mean it's huge. It's absolutely. Substantial. So. When you write about serial for five years I have inevitably you end up seeing some of the same things again and again, and one of the easiest things to do when you're reading about serial is to tell the world about the weirdly specific cereals that you've always wanted to see on shelves and for me Besides gingerbread toast crunch I think the second most idea of cereal I've ever had would be a little. OATMEAL, cream pies cereal, and now we must wait no more as Kellogg's has partnered with the snack brand to bring oatmeal cream pie cereal two shelves later this year. What's IT GONNA look like? So so from appearance alone, it doesn't necessarily look like the sort of sandwiched cream, an oatmeal cookie. Snack cake that you're familiar with It looks more like a brown oatmeal ring cereal, which is fine. I'm not really in this for appearances so much as the legacy of the snack taking question. You say, what did you say that the cream pie is your favorite little w product It's up there with cosmic Brownie alum that plastic chocolate on a on a cosmic Brownie I used to get star crunches a lot when I was a kid in my lunch bag but I don't like those so I don't know why I felt the need to tell you that but. You know it the for me. I'd say it's a three way tie between the oatmeal Cream Pie the double decker oatmeal cream pies. Distinct feast and the fudge around, which is essentially just a chocolate oatmeal cream by but overall I, think the oatmeal cream pies and amazing snack product. It's probably my go-to whenever I am Matt a gas station stopped long road trip. So I'm very very excited to see it come serial form. Especially, it's going to be a thin line to walk to get that exact flavor because as I, discovered recently. Raisins are in the battle of the bill cream pie. It's sink. Yes. Yes. Yes. Raisins in the OATMEAL cream. Pie. So that's why like you get that like is what gives it its distinct flavor is that there's raisins mixed into into the batter period into the better so. That will be a tricky flavor to to nail. Think I'm really hoping that mine is not the only mind that you've blown with this revelation right here because I did not know that at all I mean. meanwhile, I was just hoping that this is an actual oath based serial rather than some some sort of corn contraption because I think it'd be really an authentic otherwise but. I think my favorite thing about the story overall is how you just know that someone at Kellogg's saw post team up with hostess to drop the sort of twinkies, etcetera cereals, and immediately thought. Get Little Debbie on the horn. We're not going to stand for this sort of force that cooperation to happen. Yeah, it's funny that you mentioned cosmic brownies actually because when the story first broke before, it became official from Kellogg's themselves There was a youtube video of someone reviewing the little debbie cereal or oatmeal cream pies cereal before anyone knew about it and they were also reviewing cosmic Brownie cereal. It was weird because they had the box for Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies cereal but they didn't have any official box art for the cosmic brownies cereal and the stuff really kinda looked like the cocoa puffs Brownie crunch that rerelease not too long ago. So it's very uncertain. The legitimacy of this cosmic Brownie cereal because after the news officially dropped I reached OCTA Kellogg's my contact there and ask them about this and all I could tell me in the Vegas. Possible terms was that a cosmic brownies Syria was not releasing at this time. The seems like a tacit confirmation that cosmic Brownie Syria was at least considered whether it will actually be released or not or if it was scrapped entirely remains uncertain but the point remains that we're entering a brave new world of snack cakes, cereals and I'm all here for it.

Exactly every instance of somebody calling him out or like he's like you're right. I was an asshole. Yeah or like oh I have a kid okay. I'm going to be a dad now. Cool do what I can. Shit in the late auto reunion occurred with tricky massive attack time. He'll most wounds and they worked on music again in two thousand sixteen. They released the album ritual spirit.

Tricky is and how he never really gotten over it when he got on stage with one of the most famous popstars in the world in front of over two hundred thousand people. Tricky just froze. He missed his verse and finish the Song. Without uttering a word in his Mike O. And he's just a nice dude is like I can't be in front of all these fucking people afterwards.

Honestly that's not a whole lot comparatively. You're putting some people you would sink. He also had a former manager of suing him for unpaid wages. Oh yeah so. He has a lot going on here and you would think like most famous musicians should be nothing right. Well no this was no easy fix of okay. Let's just work hard and pay this off. He had moved around so much of it on so many levels that it was hard to tell exactly how he was gonNA fix each issue. Because it's hard to tell like where they started where they ended. Yeah he also didn't notice how he spent money he never learned to drive so we had a lot of car services he did drugs he would just go out and spend money and yes he is successful but he is not that success so and again didn't realize that he didn't have his he's like oh taxes he's not good with money clearly didn't have any and neither were any of the people that he hired to manage his money.

Tricky was still making music and putting out albums and even started another label called false idols. Here released an album of the same name around that time. Okay solid. I'm GonNa tell you right now if you're going to listen to a tricky album. I really like false idols. Great but even with releases and tours. He was not seeing an end to his debt so they decided to take away a majority of his live band like I said he was slowly and slowly taking away little pieces of his set. So daddy this resulted in some experimentation with an album called skilled mechanics pretty stripped down effort and it was produced a bit hurriedly overall. It's tricky least favorite album But overall this experience helped in every aspect from learning how to be such good businessmen to even a better performer. Such good businessman. He's much better businessman now than he was before with them with a minimal band. There is nothing to hide behind and so we had no choice but to work on his confidence. And it's all been for the better trickiest music. Creation process has changed becoming more thoughtful and not so rushed. He's been touring successfully gaining more and more fans and retroactive praise. For albums that may not have been recognized for their potential at first overall tricky. Never let the fame get the better of him as a person he just wants to be treated with respect like any other normal human he understands how hard life can be and so he can fund the beauty in everyday life which makes his music so relatable Even at fifty two. I think he still has a lot to offer and will continue to shape music for a long time and deserves to get his do. It's kind of crazy that he's fifty two. I know he don't look fifty two boiler good You know what they say. I do know what they say. And it's true however like trickiest book. I am ending this on a very sad note. Oh so buckle up. Oh God yeah what happens so maybe not everyone realizes this and I did address this earlier in the episode but mental illness is genetic uh-huh it can easily run the lines of your family's DNA in this case. Tricky IS MOTHER. Maxine had it. He himself was certainly showing symptoms and so is his daughter. Macy just this past may twenty. Nineteen maisy tragically took her own life this understandably absolutely rocked tricky and Martinez worlds as well as many others. Maisy was a budding musician. Herself she was a member of the south London. Collective called four into read the last chapter of Tricky Book. It is simply a page that he clearly wrote after like. I think he finished the book. And then this happened again. Added the Sin Rape. Before it was published the second slash chapter is so sweet and positive and he talks about like how he's come from so much and how he's been really lucky and then the last actual chapter is just a page. It's just about how maisy took her life. He doesn't know how to process it. He's lost people. But this is just one yeah and ends on such a bleak and sad and it's sad because you do see how much he's gone through and how much he's progressed and celebrated and done so well throughout it and then he ends on this note in. I think a lot of people can relate to that of seeing like this loss in your life wondering. Can you recover from it? We don't know he's still made a little music but this is this is the one. This is the loss that rip rip at his heartbreak. It is to lose your child to sue US. Like he started his book losing his mother to suicide and he ends his book losing his daughter to suicide. And it's crazy and sad and I feel my heart goes out to and Martina and all the people in their lives. Because that's such issues so young. And she her own artist making her own path and heard a little bit of the 4:04 collective they put out a song that was written by her and called blindspot. I highly just looking up. It's a very good song. She clearly is touting was talented. And it's a shame on so many levels to lose her but that's how powerful mental illnesses is that somebody who is young and has their entire life ahead of them and is doing creative and important things and they know they're doing creative and important things that mental illness is still so powerful that it overtakes everything else right now. That's the tragedy and as and say it every time if you guys are feeling lost or like you don't matter you do and reach out and get help because this is what happens in aftermath is that there are people left behind and it rips our lives apart. Yeah losing you is worse than you thinking that you don't need to be here. Yeah well. That was a bummer. Note to leave in on. You're welcome. I hope really hoping this is going to be positive at the end. Sorry no it's not your fault. Say but he's volume as fall. It's you know look out for each other. Look yourself you matter so yeah I think that's the point. I really want to bring home with. That is whether you think so. We're not you do in fact matter to at least one person and that is worth getting help. Yeah for definitely get help. Think you need it. There's no shame in that. Take a pill if you need to see a therapist if you need to do you need to do you know. Shimano CBD oil. I don't know what you need to do. Just straight up fucking pot all the time. That's fine add. Figure it out like whatever you need to keep yourself here do it. And just not heroin. Oh Yeah just. Don't do heroin. Heroin GonNA keep you here. It's not it's fast tracking straight to not here heroines. A fast track to not here but like I was saying especially because of all this. Listen to Turkey's music. It's so good and you're going to hear so much influence in a specially when you listen Ma. Anything just listened to Maxine Quaye. Yeah eighties such a great album. He is so talented Martinez amazingly talented and is really the foundation of you. Know everything you listen to. Now if you listen to now from fucking dub step bullshit to scroll ix or whoever the Falke is and like Ariana Grande Day or whatever honestly it really is the foundation for all of the modern pop that we listen to now and even the Rock dwayne Johnson the loves tricky probably shun listening to Turkey. 'cause I'm saying it way. The Rock Johnson listens to tricky. He probably does honestly if you want to be like the rock the rocky no scrub scrub at all while all right so thank you guys so much for listening China when it here because we hit rock bottom. We're.

It's tricky tricky. We're not talking about Randy. And now we are at all like this has nothing to do with Rod DMC. This is the SOG tricky. It's just because we probably both have this song stuck in her head for the last week. What do you think yes? I have had this song stuck in my head a lot because it's an earworm. It is an earworm of song but also I kind of WanNa learn all the lyrics so we can do that Kariuki now. Oh yeah no I mean I already. I got him so I mean there on screen so yeah but I don't know like the cadence of Oh. Yeah Yeah now listen to it all week. We'll be good for Kariuki. I say this is a. This is a solid karaoke hit. Yeah and we're not talking about it not at all. Let's just snip. That right in the bud. Yeah no doing it not going to happen. Welcome candy where we don't talk about run DMC not today not yet not yet. Not Today eventually. Oh Yeah we'll get there. They'll get the rock turned rock trained Freeman Rock treatment. No free referring to something. I would say we're not. Words are great for us. I am Maggie and I'm taken to drink sorry I'm Ashley and we're hosts and we are bringing you sweet treats from the world's music every week. Yeah and this week we're going obscure I I don't WanNa see obscure but I guess obscure kind of but also he's been around for a very long time. He is insanely influential. And you probably don't even know who he is. Yeah which is unfortunate again. I think we're just tapping into more for black history month of these artists that are super important to the world of music and very influential. And you just don't know. Oh my God like rap. Wouldn't be what it is today. If it wasn't for this artist ELECTRONICA wouldn't be what it is today. If it was not better or worse it depends on how you look at it. Yeah yeah either way either way is what it is you can definitely think this dude for it. Yeah Yeah today. We are talking about the musical artist. Tricky hence the song in the beginning gas and heads maybe some confusion maybe some have when they see the title of this. Are they just going to spend an hour and a half talking about the song? Turkey we probably could but no. I feel like there's not that much set song. It's just a fucking jam. Yeah but yes so. We are talking about this artist. Tricky you might be wondering who he is for some of you. If I say massive attack maybe that will jog something up for you. He was definitely heavily involved in the beginnings of band. That group also another incredibly influential band. That only really gets talked about in vary like obscure listrik holes and Shit like that. Yeah and then people will remain at our heard from fi but then again a lot of our UK and listeners and European listeners are probably hearing us say tricky and massive attack thinking. Yeah no I know who that is. I'm not an idiot but Americans are dumb they already it's and they don't really look into this show. We don't get as much music as we should over here. Yeah we get a lot of garbage hold on a garbage hold on a boat rock still still on my part rock over here for some reason he still really into venture seven belts so seven. Yeah my favorite band. There's so memorable terrible guys. Seven folderol good bad. You're such a hot topic band but LENA LATE. Two thousands hot topic bands like the the bad the real bad topic hot topic years. Yeah Yeah we talk about that topic here. When hot topic discovered the nightmare before Christmas? That's when everything just went fucking downhill and years after the movie comes out there like Hey Jamie see this week makes so much money off of this. We've really straight off topic hot topic. We paid hot right about hot topic. Yeah please talk about tricky because fuck hot topic and we should definitely talk about the beer drinker. Hit US harder than we thought. I don't know actually four percent. It's hitting me harder than I thought it would. I had half an a snickers ice cream bar before we started drinking breakfast for you know that was lunch. Okay so this week. We are drinking from single cut boo. Smith's Boozman looseness. There would be a great like just a really great title for a brewery. That does all Halloween themed boost Smith. Spoo- Smith Saul. Yeah let's you know what we're done guys neck podcast where we're going to start a buoy. Don't you take that idea? That's all the copyrights we also you so fast. Always this is recorded. We HAVE PROOF. We have proof. You stole it from US. Anyway. We're drinking. Shyness is nice which is a tart. It's fine it's honestly like most single cut assign stuff we've had. It's just fine. This is fine. It's not particularly tart but it's not overwhelmingly. Ip a what we did have a very inland discussion before according about what it really tastes like and it really reminiscent of a flavor of when you use half of the frozen concentrate can you don't use the full can because you're trying to save money which they use the same amount of water in which is really watered down or feel like probably a lot of the younger folk that listen to us probably don't know what the concentrate is. They make frozen concentrate anymore. I don't really see it very much at all. I remember going to the grocery store and there are cases upon cases a fruit. Concentrate that you would make Wella's Walsh's was the jam it was so I'm no get out. Get out get the fuck out of here no it. That was the cheap way to make orange juice juice as you got the concentrating dollars. Fifty cents fifty cents a dollar. Whatever for a little can of frozen concentrate our for four. I think there are like twenty five cents. There were only ones you guys know. Do you remember he wants to go? Get the like the little clear powders. Really Twenty ten cents. I think yeah they were like ten cents lower lake ten for a dollar usually Gillis. Wow we're not. We're not interesting to stay on. This tastes like very watered-down Orange juice concentrate. Yes you would get frozen in a tube. Yes I had to kind of stretch with this one. Like as far as building with it but China's nice you will soon discover that due to tricky shyness as a person it helped him cultivate the artists. He became yeah. I kind of feel like we're this cut. We're getting into some deep cuts with our beer choices. I mean arguably that's a single cut does anyway in before I really get into it. I would like to cite my source. Most of everything. I'm giving you guys I found. Actually it's nice. Tricky is very interview. -able he likes to talk so it was easy to find interviews but also. I read his biography. Hell is round the corner and this was co written with Andrew. Perry so he did have a little help. But I'm really want to highly suggest this biography to anyone. Listening Eighty is really interesting. He's a great writer He writes like he's talking to you. Which is something I enjoy. He has a crazy interesting story and there are some things that I wanted to get into. But I just didn't have the time so please pick up this book if you ever see it yet I really WanNa read it. Yeah there's some really good stories their stuff with David Bowie in there that I wasn't able to so that could be more stories for episode on Weird Shit David Bowie did our eventual spinoff podcast. Weird Shit though. We did basically yeah. We basically his life. Yeah but yeah he Because you know. British artists recognize Yeah it helps. I guess now is the time I'm going to get into the story of two Ricki Hall Radi before I do get started though on the life of tricky. I want to give a little background into the musical genre known as trip hop because really he's one of the fathers of the Stranraer. Please tell me more. I feel like you don't tell me more trip hop is not easy to describe. I just tried to do it the other night. And it's very hard it is it is a blending of hip hop and Electronica in hints of Jazz are Embi House soul psychedelic kind of a little bit of everything. There is a very experimental element to it with in its music as well as the visuals overall all experimental. It's style of music that maybe not everyone is familiar with but its influence reaches throughout most genres of all the music. We hear today after this episode. If you go back and listen to artists like gorillas back Madonna Bjork radiohead Queens. The Stone Age Janet Jackson even the Flaming Lips. Oh yeah our favorite favorite but you can hear hints of trip hop in. Yeah absolutely them. I don't listen to electronic so maybe I'm far off base here but I feel like trip hop is the most easily digestible of the sub genres. I'll say in house can be most commercialized yet. And they're the ones that are most commercialized. That artists like Madonna and stuff like that will seek out people that have experienced in those genres. Yeah and bring them in and put that kind of influence into their music so that the masses will hear it. All of those musicians can thank the trip. Hop Movement of the Ninety S for pushing the envelope of sound and tricky was at the forefront. Whether or not he meant to be this isn't what I would call a classic underdog story. It may just be a story of being incredibly lucky throughout your life and tricky is actually the first to admit that but luck are not his ingenuity. Artistry cannot be denied. Tricky was born Adrian. Nicholas Matthews Thaws on January twenty seventh nineteen sixty eight. That's such a generic name but like so many with so many names right age. I don't know Adrian's Kinda Fun. That's a good name Adrian. He is the son of Roy. Thaws a Jamaican man and maxine Quaye. Who was Anglo Guyanese? So her family mixed Guyanese in English British. I should Throughout his childhood being mixed rate race would play a big part in Turkey becoming who he is today while wouldn't be inclined to say either. His parents had a musical influence on him. They both had some artistry in their backgrounds. Roy worked on the studio seventeen sound system with his father is one of the best known in England at the time and nicknamed Tarzan. The.

It's like it's one of those things where it's When I first because I did Troubled waters waters a few a few months back when I put the headphones on and just listening was like Oh my God I feel soothed. How good yeah? I want you to explain everything to me. That's right off the bat. I'm like we've wasted number ten for segment on this show. It should just be Dave. How do you find egg? Think Great and then we'll jump into not dave do you. Do you still play games at all. Now I really don't yeah. Whereas last game he played the thing is I knew I was never a huge game right? Yeah I got Apple Arcade okay. I'm open to the possibility of love. Yes we would like to find a game and those are simple because they have to. Because there's a there's a limited number of buttons Ah for you to match right so I've tried a couple on there but I don't I when I play video game I. I'm aware of the time that I am wasting really feels feels like other things I should be. You don't feel that when you watch. TV or movies now really now interesting because at least I'm control like I'm educating myself on something that might have to talk about it Si- about or something. So chair saying is there needs to be more video game. PODCAST for you to go on. Maybe Dacre figure that out. I okay so I was born in seventy one so Atari came out when I was like nine or ten became popular one hundred ten and so everybody had their home game system but then there was like a a black. A video games went dark like five or six. They've really did like between Atari. And Nintendo. There was nothing. Yeah and that's when I would've maybe set my house Golden Years Right. Yeah Yeah had Nintendo I I guess one of seventeen or something and I played contra. Yeah I remember I finished year contracts. The only game I've ever finish really. I think it's impressive. That's a hard really. Who is well you know was in high school? What stay up late and what what what did it feel like to beat that game? Do you remember I remember it was really excited. It was you know because all kinds of things lit up and then realized but then I was like well. I guess that game is over now. Yeah go back and start from the beginning and there weren't any of the Games that interested you you're like I guess I beat Video Games and I didn't have the passion for it and then I went off college. Nobody would have and intendo there right now. I didn't play any video games and I picked up dark souls which is considered one of the games the world and I beat it. I'd be like I don't need to do this. Yeah Yeah I really I don't anymore. I've been playing video games my whole life if I beat dark souls and then it was like it's over I'd be like I don't WanNa play that ever again. Games games I just like. The term was Nintendo hard when they made the transition from From Games in the arcades where they made it hard since you keep pushing quarters in that machine until you feed it and they got to Nintendo. And they're like well. We only have a set number. You know of of things you can put on the game because the memory on these cartridges is not large so in order order to extend the playtime and make it worth the money. Let's make it super difficult right. And that's like that's a fun thing when your kid but when you win the medium starts to expand for me at least in their storytelling possibilities now they're set-piece possibilities and they go back to. Let's make it as hard as we can. I'm like turns out. I like things to be easy if possible. Sure and so to have that moment of beating Contra I could totally see beating it and going done. Don't need to go back Keith. If you're looking at me like you disagree. Yeah would never ever do that to myself. You know and it's just different for everybody like either connect with assistant is what you WANNA do. Or you don't like when I would be too game. I'm like what's next. It's kind of like when you see a movie and you're like that was awesome terminator. What's the other thing I can walk? Yeah that's the thing is like I would beat the game like that and go. That was great I don't have to play that game again. What's the next thing having said that as you know what I'm I'm in the I'm just starting my fourth play a game? That is one hundred hours long in the last year and a half. I've beaten a game three times and each time. It is a one hundred hours hours of work at the music and the game kind of like what that music and that games kind of leg. Jessie what's it like electron ICKE. Don't come on buddy.

"All right Joe so before we even get to talking about Daryl Morey and the actual issue of the tweet here you wrote the story a couple of days ago and and it caused some controversy in itself Yes we set out to write a story that explain why everything that was happening over the weekend with regards to the NBA in China why it was so problematic in China but in telling that story some context was missing A. and Joe if anything you know this this blowback that that you've received in the last couple of days is proof of how compost catered and charged this conversation this issue is yeah I I think that's right you know the the other day Steve Coach the warriors there's someone who has no trouble at any point talking talking out about almost any political issue steps aside on this when it comes to the NBA a in China and what's happening now as it relates to Hong Kong just because he said it's too complex so let's let's try to jump into this with some new ones The Guy at the heart of this controversy is the General Manager of the Houston Rockets Daryl Morey can you just tell me a little bit about his background there is a nerd for starters now for that person who's not using data then get to the top and say now there's this guy down here saying like that you should look at the Super Smart Guy he's very much into analytics and he is considered a trailblazer as general manager in the NBA right and he's been the GM of the rocket since two thousand seven is he known to be politically outspoken not anymore than certainly than anybody else in the NBA me when you think about the you know the freedom fighters if you will I mean you're talking about Lebron James and I will not to sort of a dribble you're talking about the car you're talking about break Popovich whether it's lgbt movement or you know women's suffrage race it doesn't matter people will have to be made to feel uncomfortable I wouldn't put down more ahead of any of them this happens all the time in the United States with our NBA players and coaching. when something happened that they perceive to be out of step with social justice or racial justice They speak up on it And take a stand darryl when he sent that tweet just thought he was doing the same thing this political situation at Daryl Morey wades into you as we've already mentioned is extremely complicated for months there have been protests ongoing in Hong Kong and the main reason for the protests is an extradition policy they were protesting a bill that would allow suspected criminals in the city to be sent to mainland China for trial mean now we're really kind of getting in deep here with what's been happening between China and Hong Kong over a period of decades but this was the latest policy being muted by the Hong Kong government critics feared the extradition law could let China target political opponents supporters of the bill claim safeguards are in place prevent that from happening in addition to that the the people in Hong Kong are protesting over some encroachments on civil liberties such as what they see as an invasion no privacy with cameras all over the place facial recognition technology protesters lobbed firebombs at police forties returned fire with t adapts water cannon and for the first time since the protest movement ramped up four months ago we need full force this video appears to show the moment tester is shot by a police officer with live ammunition moments after he attacks the officer with a pole and not only that but Amnesty International has also criticized China for its violent crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong we've documented cases of people scrutinized when they are in detention even ill-treated torture pointing laser pans in their eyes and injuries that really requires digitization so when Maurice sends out this tweet an image that says quote fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong he probably didn't think it would be as controversial as it was what he didn't realise it again just speak to how complex this is is how deeply rooted the opposition would be on behalf of the Chinese government and Chinese businesses Well so Maurice Sends the tweet and what happens next over the weekend more is tweet unleashed a strong response in mainland China the Chinese.

I also think the two things could exist at once and i also think that this is a a person who walks around telling half truth either way. She's someone who likes to bend the truth to her. Advantage and you know that is that is the behavior of someone someone who has a lot to hide and maybe she isn't a controlling relationship. Maybe she also had to get home because she was supposed to like grab one afternoon drink with a a friend and they were going to have a family dinner yeah and she couldn't come home because she was shit phased and he's like what the hell happened. I thought we were going to spend time together. I just got back in town. Yeah lake the tricky pickle.

"Can see they're gonna points but it's a way from whom will they were so oh bod and that was gonna dragging them down and if liverpool performances get anything to go by. He hasn't done anything away from home to meet them any better talk so that's that's where he is improve other asses problems that we from whom come from the fact that there's simply no leaders in our room and i think that's what causes them in the back end of last season and nor is spine anytime things go a little bit tough for them. There was nobody simply just to stand up on themselves counted. You see that again from from arsenal against listen liverpool. A far better nas no so let's not read too much into that result. Maybe we can get things better. I think you should play all three upfront and then defend with more numbers behind because i still think that that's a achilles heel and he hasn't addressed that leadership issue which i again i i think it was a missed opportunity this chance but with eighteen over a year and i don't think he's ending the wiser into what's the best way forward for them. I'm to get results in irregular bichon had a great run last year was fifteen ever was <hes> but i don't think any really believed that was going to take them on to <hes> to challenge for the title but the difference is when mindset when these teams that liverpool new set rotating players the all commend seamless but an awful maybe chop open chains from midfield different. It's a bit of a mess march because came to change all the tame and i think he still guessing that he he will see he's written and the common denominator is when they have a proper game like his air doesn't play it so a not hasn't changed. It was the same unless issue frank lawsuit on aso and on pepe. You're so excited about signing. He hasn't quite hit the ground running the as yet no. He has to settle down. I think you have to give him a little bit of time. You know he had to fantastic season the coach in lille as tim lot but again it's the to have to sit down and make sure that you you learn how to play and tour is the other context but i'm pretty sure and i'm pretty confident that he's going to be successful. Player in premier league has has the talent for that but i said i think they should be playing three upfront asset and obama young and i can be the <hes> very good front and they can do very very well fine. Stay late today to answer questions on extratime be sure to check them now. Yesterday was all about pizza won't and unfortunately a number look on our youtube channel. Sanchez is an inter milan stevie like this no why why would interval aw think they're gonna get anthony this guy. That's that's what i don't understand. You know when you go insane. Generally you're going to have your the moten. Watch them. Yeah go this guy. Corporate america did right but you did alright lengthy sanchez not supposed to do already done alexi sanchez supposed late late to school goals set up cianci's and he hasn't done any well. I guess i guess carrying a load of the money helps but <hes> i'm not sure shoe. Will they think this guy is going to all of a sudden blossom again into this machine. That was previously box alone in a national leaves unite like attack though doesn't waver somebody thinks they could be the solutions last time having another great season and m._l._s. and this is what you have to say like like a place in the premier league so if united need me i'm here. Let's be honest who's battling what really well as a squad yeah. Would you bring him in the season. <hes> not thing that ship doesn't the thing i would. I'd i'd. I think i'd say the squad in a number of ways one. I still think he's good enough at the very least contribute secondly. I think manchester united have any leaders non just room i think he he adds to that and then thirdly ms i under manchester united at at least he linked up with paul pogo hold better..

"Louis. Shall we another mistake from him of course in the liverpool game. Where do you rate him as a defender well. I don't wanna give you five five you know because he he won't many things i love. He's he's the personality of the guy but i think i always already say that. I think he's more midfielder done a central a defender he showed it when he was putting senator man that that he can make big mistakes as essentially fender like he did last weekend and as as a midfielder i think he was very interesting to us. Experiencing the cannot do those kind of silly things when when you just arrive at the club when you are supposed to help the young the youngest you have to do better than that for sure. You obviously no emory well from his time at p._s. G frank had last season to pay then. I think a lot of people gave him a few passes during his first campaign in england you look at that game against liverpool. You think you niamh reconsider his tactics out moving forward to get this team together yeah but that's that's a problem with this personally. Never been a particular fan of the way he wants his team to to to to to play and and i think he has to do better than that. I think he has to make sure that the players are all committed to what he wants and <hes> lost allows the dressing room when he was at a very very easily and very early before he went to last season. It didn't have big stars or he had people who really wanted to to fight for the club at fight for for him to hate. He's going to be a different way. The season season where you have some salsa levies coming but also you you have to evolve in the way you want to play and i don't see the difference between before he was there when he was the enough like i said is someone who hasn't seen particularly fancy at the start of the season again the frenchman find himself on the bench in a big match. What do you think it is about him. Emory doesn't trust or doesn't like not many games. It's only what two three three games in the premier league so. You have to make sure that everybody's he's concerned that you have a squad that you don't have only fourteen players you will need lots of lots of the players must of the players and especially you you know at front when you have those those kind of fantastic players you have to make sure that the one of the banning dimension another game he he comes in and he'd say turn over. It's just normal so nobody should be offended by that. Camera you get this right and the personality. He's got no well. It depends will get better than liverpool. Now you wanna see improvement. You want to see a better side that went out against sliver. Fail improved compared to the silent did exactly the same yeah i want to. I want to see austin bay against the big boys. You know i wanna see us. No no you know in general until late last season. I don't want to dealing with the mid table mediocrity bob how they're going to cope with with the big boys boys that up against for the top four lesson. They'll not be as many escape route from this year selling me as it was last. I don't think it was a great great transfer. Window fallen did spend some money but stella's frank said you still want to see something different. If you haven't got the police you're going to find a way getting a result. If if you don't think you have the squad but the race for the four that's ever seen anything primary for what he's done. Nope particularly the problem the problem emory arsenal of hard as your way from home that's how he can change because because even as as as what three games under the premier league you.

"The football another way of playing the football of thinking the football and that's maybe the best way for him to settled down and to not be lunch you know at first and the and being the good strikers in syria maybe being cautious right and as a good thing yeah you kim and chelsea from french for knew nothing about the premier league. You were more experienced meanings than obviously but he's clearly a good player. You commend to chelsea. What would you have said if you hadn't played the primarily game of the season and and you were on the bench. I would have been frustrated but i was. I was like twenty six twenty. <hes> i was playing with craig burley thousand the chin superior with craig burley. That's a good point now. Really i think you cannot really compare with we've myself where chelsea chelsea wasn't the big chelsea that we know now. Chelsea was a good team for for me table. He's not u._n. Twos it's different. I don't go along with us. Well it has to the way the play and all this nonsense right. You've plea. We are back four right. I explained with a bike for what does he have to do. Differently play the event is they didn't do or hall and by the way he plays in the back four that are absolute basics of defendant in a back four and this guy that special reason why event is bomb because he can do that and they know that with the ball he will make them even better so what does it do with him not being ready to play in the full scheme of the season meanwhile frank. It's the first time we you've been on since chelsea's opening few matches under frank lampard. Ask you about your former team. And what do you make. It's been a mixed bag so far yes but i was very pleased with the way they started. The manchester united hundred game of the reason was but the way they played a i mean the first half was quitting raging. Do european supercup supercup. I think the one they played better than the pool. It was a disaster against leicester. I mean especially the second half a <hes> and i was risque against no last weekend because county was absolutely fantastic but managed to due to saudi dots. I think he's good to see mountain rams scoring goals getting the confidence is going to be hard but i think they have. The spirit to two are very hard to make. Should that franklin paul as another success in in chelsea so i'm confident i'm sure they can be in the first three three but it can be four-fifths. Everything goes well it's going to it's going to be hot season but i think they're going to do. They're going to do well. They don't do well frankly or should we have the same initials and they couldn't replace. I'm kidding press conferences. We'll be the facts and mayes and champions league draw tomorrow.

"That's cutting off your nose. Though despite your face i didn't it from being exposed as frank said they've you've got an abundance of riches but the half feel free within financial fair play supposed to get new players. I actually and actually saw a colleague said low of tweet note l. look sometimes we forget because you're the baggage around us guy. Just how good a player yeah yeah it's true but as such a circus has followed all of them run and all the storylines most driven by himself and his antics and franz passively passively would late we see p._s._g. Hold on as guy and say okay you face these funds. You play for less team next year. You try try and take this team to the next level. I don't think that's going to happen by the way i would like to see that we paid x. Amount of money for you and we've not got the buying the book yet yet. Give us something next season and then we'll think about that would be a good way but it ain't gonna happen that way because you know money will talk can the end to challenge with that peers g in spending the spending the money that they did how is on one prize and won the champions league and clearly with or without neeman in this squad. I don't think as it stands is good enough to win the champions league so now you're left with a few days to somehow get in and get enough good players in exchange to make this to migas team genuine champions league contenders because in twelve months time. I don't think bobby is still appears. I have done what we'll on him for this for this long twelve months time. I think he's got it set on real madrid and who knows what were peers. She looks like he's ever just take a year off as franck suggests you you can't have name out at p g gone you. You've completely lost in the final one on their you know when you when you put all your eggs in one basket. It can go two ways. No you can't you can't let's see what they did wasn't the right thing because then saying the name i will thought that's that little piece of puzzle right but you know what for for a hosta reasons that it doesn't fit that puzzle and shoo him out the door. You can move forward. There's always neymars appears. Gee this. We're going to be talking about is always going to be about naeema n._p._s. Will not be able to move forward is done for the puzzle because he's got nothing is going on and he kept the puzzle over the room dan. He's gonna give almost finished you. Then smart place injured during why get rid of them. You know i understand i well i think from a point of view it's easy for him if he gets his move yeah easy for him while he leaves the ashes of what was behind them monday it is over that is wearing the transfer window closes in you're already seeing a lot of activity including meeting of course making a big money move from i actually events as he was linked to kohl's p._s. Gene throughout some indian heading to syria it was big discussions on the shark couple of days ago regarding elect not featuring in that opening match for u._v._a. Against palmer came out afterwards didn't quite get eh ronald koeman as well got defended the decision from you. Craig and steve obviously weren't particularly impressed. What did you make the elect. One of the most most expensive defenders ever didn't feature in this game well. I think it takes time. Um you know to to sell done especially in syria where where you know you have to learn another another way of defending or maybe playing football as well well on top of each year of two masters of perfection as central defenders kidney bucci so you i think the coach he's getting clever modder finger when he puts ruben perez first on the bench to see how's the premier the league was working and then little by lethal put it him and it worked so the leong he had a fantastic season last this season but he has to learn another way of seeing.

As part of the deal frank i don't want to talk about that too much because there was so much speculation regarding neymar and his future just from a pass g points of view. What's sipping like the last couple of weeks regarding name in a way. It's a disaster feick in fan spun of view. They don't wanna see name anymore. I think they really fed up with him. Fed up with the situation undefended with the fact that he's being too many times fed up with a behavior and because he's reset that they wanted to leave. They don't want to see him again for the for the club. I don't know what's going on. I don't know how leo now do i. He's going to to to manage everything because that's a question of ego this equation of so also pride where leonardo us to show so that is the bus so what's going to happen if he lets name ause go. Maybe the fan who see that this week if he stays what what you gonna do with name all that's the real problem is going to be easy going to be able to play so it's a very tricky situation and more so at the point where i. I really think that that's my view that bustle. No doesn't want name. Oh the just play with spicer showman because he doesn't wanna go. Each side is agent. Threaten them himself to stop working with him. If it goes what about wreckage for less money i mean it's a big big mess. We don't know what's how is going to end but it's a real big mess and it's good for the major. It's also and he's also so very bad image for of course if you're in barcelona shoes frank. How hard would you push to get this done. Count neymar be the name that we expect him to be two or three years ago. I won't put myself in the list.
