It's tough to put a cap on it. I was going to ask you so. Those protests have flared up two weeks ago in response to covert and response to lack of freedom of speech etc are those continuing or has the government. Actually put that fire out. You know the. I did put a fire out his very easy because of cuba being an island right. There's no border you can run to. And it is a very controlled society but we are seeing for the first time a government that is unable to project its complete and total control of things on the ground. Today was celebrated by these mya rations that were announced about the country. Which were some rice bagged rice a little bit of sugar and cooking that was in essence the gift that they got today for the revolution you served as a sort of informal intermediary between the us and cuban governments. Go i mean what are cuban officials thinking right now. Can you put us in their heads. But what is stark here for. The first time is that these are children of the revolution that are fighting the revolution. These are not the grandchildren of these. These are not the remnants of the propertied class or the the cuban coolmax as it were. This is the children of the revolution. And you notice that both in cuba those who are fighting are under thirty and you notice. Also abroad in the demonstrations were typically marked by people like my parents or my grandparents standing and fighting for a for the thought of cube or a democratic tube or a different view That is what the people who are taking the streets in in the united states in cuba. It's you it's the people that were brought up in the system today in washington. There were cubans protesting Asking joe biden to do more Bring pressure on the cuban government. So the us impose sanctions on a cuban security minister interior ministry special forces unit last week. I gather you've been on recent phone calls. Joe biden officials when they've laid out there thinking on cuba. What options are they considering what the us. I think should do some very aggressive help. Unkovic that gets directly to the cuban people because coleman kills capitalist and communist like the cubans always wanting for an epic battle and seeing themselves in the epic image.

California says it will cap payment to those who survived sterilisations to twenty five thousand dollars for the world. Nbc going threat us coming right up. I speak with our reporter in afghanistan. Where large parts of the country are under a strict curfew. The taliban's typically uses the cover of night time to move around its fighters and weapon. It also uses that time to print these handmade roadside bombs along kind vase. That's just ahead. You're listening to the world. i'm marco werman. You're with the world in afghanistan. The official deadline for the us to fully withdraw. Its troops is at the end of august but the taliban is already actively on the offensive the militants have captured more and more territory at alarming speed. And that's prompted the afghan government to impose a month-long curfew across most of the country. The world's your interest in the capital kabul Sharon the curfew is not in effect in the city of kabul. But what do you know about it. Where where's it being applied. You're right michael. There is no curfew in kabul. Where i am but what we know is that over the weekend. The afghan government made an announcement saying that in thirty one out of four provinces in afghanistan. There will be a nighttime curfew. Besides kabul there are two other provinces that are exempt. From this rule punchier nangarhar. And this is likely because there is less of todd presence in these areas under this curfew. People are not allowed to leave their homes between ten pm. And for ya. So what is the thinking behind the curfew. How would it work to actually push back or dissuade. The taliban from advancing. I've been speaking with some security experts here in kabul over the past few days and what they tell me is that the taliban typically uses the cover of night time to move around its fighters and weapon. It also uses that time markle to plant these handmade roadside bombs along highways and these bombs are really easy to make and they're really cheap but very powerful and sometimes when you're driving on the highway as you can see these craters that the bombs have left behind when they exploded and in some places with afghan security forces do is that they go along the highway in the morning and they clean up these bombs that the taliban fighters half painted overnight but as you know markle these days. The afghan security forces are overstretched. Because they're fighting the taliban so many parts of the country. And the thinking here is that maybe these nighttime curfews can help. Bring down some of these insecurity in some parts of the country but one major question that i have is. How will this curfew be implemented and enforced especially in places where the government doesn't have much control or in areas that are contested. I mean for example. What happens if somebody doesn't follow the curfew In these areas..

He's basically he's saying he's not doing your crew and he's writing some ways because he's really using the the art school. At in the constitution that enables him to take power into tech exceptional measures in in the case of a very big danger in tunisia or something threatening the security of the country yesterday they were protests all over the country asking for the end of the tunisian parliament and as king for the resentment of the government's so he basically a used to enact the article eighteen it.

Tunisians took to the streets of course in two thousand eleven triggering there and in other countries what became known as the arab spring or arab awakening tunisia. Those considered to be the only our spring revolution that was more or less successful in bringing about something resembling democracy. So what should we take away from this latest news. I think what is positive is that there hasn't been any violence so very still Of communication even. If it's very tense. The issue is now in. The worry is like a bit earlier. How much did democrats six to change. Political system overnight based on constitution. We've without the institutions that guarantee the democratic process and the absence of the constitutional court's is kind of worrying some experts. There is a slight very fragile frontier.

Lilia incur- the games in tokyo or on in a fairly surreal way not surreal china japan russia and the us got off to hot starts and lead the medal count. That felt normal but the metal leaders only tell one slice of the story particularly at these olympics. The bank a hillary was here with me. I'm so people love watching the olympics to see underdogs. Come up and take gold. The we've already seen a few of those made for tv moments like that. Tell us more. Yeah absolutely over the weekend the. Us men's basketball team lost of france. Big upset there but arguably even more surprising was what happened at the men's four hundred meter freestyle final at the pool. Eighteen year old. Ahmed half now we from tunisia had just made the finals. He went into the race with the slowest time. But after the first two hundred meters he was looking strong started inching ahead and his family was watching backhoe. I think every action will let you know how the race. Wow we know he won but you can really hear it there. And did i see the odds for him. Winning goal for five thousand to one something like that. It was not expected at all. And i spoke with his coach. Joe brain tweedy. Who's 'into okeyo with him right now. He actually said they cried when they saw that video of his family cheering coach. Twilly told me all eyes have been on him since he won. He was giving a message from all tunisian beautiful. Congratulations earned visit saying who may happy to tunisian so he throws so amazing and with the somber political news in tunisia today. This gold medal must balance things out a little bit to accomplish. That goal at just. Eighteen is pretty incredible but amazingly have now he was not the youngest medallist. We saw this weekend was he no not at all over at the women's street skateboarding event. Three teenagers swept the podium. It was the youngest podium in olympic history. Well that's incredible. It was also the first time. Skateboarding has been included in olympics history. You know skateboarders pride themselves for being rebels and not part of the mainstream is a place at the olympic. Something skaters have been asking for. Yes and no you know. There's a lot of excitement about kids being skateboarding at the games and thinking. Hey i want to try that.

Thank you so much for being here today. Thanks for having me. It was hoping that you could first off Introduce yourself a little bit to our listeners. Who are you go? Yeah sure so. I'm the CO founder. and CD will. Average average is a healthcare Michigan Company. Based out of Pittsburgh. So won't trying to do is. We're trying to build an intelligent health. Advocate advocate that can help patients become more informed and empowered great. And so your side is really focusing on the patients agents. And I've had some people on the podcast previously talking more about voice technology from the clinician side. So this is interesting a different spin on it. How did you get into this? Uh what's it little bit of your personal background in this sure definitely so. I've been working at the intersection of mentioning and held for almost the past seven years. Losing my diamond carnegie-mellon Iran two thousand sixteen. I got interested in this idea of creating. An oncology clinical trials magic platform with on colleges in patients can easily quickly finding this stuff. Clinical trials for a patient died. So there's been a minimum viable product Tunisians doctors and patients than love the idea and repeat beat but data liquidity integrations with HR systems turned out to be an uphill battle and that didn't feel right patients. Don't own the data forget ownership. They don't even have the access to the data. They cannot really upload it to a service of their choice so abridged what we're trying to do is working towards helping patients capture creatine creek. They don't get the audio recordings if you think about it. These can help in shifting the balance patients by helping cleared the ground rules. Look for the kid so that is going to the grid. I rent from trying to build a clinical magic platform. But I was just busy. Lucien the kind of state of affairs with data not really accessible to the patients so now we are actually helping patients Create and own. They don't need a wonderful and as I said just before that question you know. You're looking the things from the patient side. Obviously so this is really really interesting. So how does this work. Maybe you can tell us a little bit of the history of the company itself and how the platform works with some of the technology behind it. Definitely definitely so Yeah so as I mentioned. It's an intelligent health advocate You Can Security Code Review and share the qualifications so the way it works. Is You don big button in the APP record audio which is encrypted and uploaded to the cloud but for the mission owning processing once it is processed. You can quickly reviewed recordings In clinical concepts highlighted by Amish Mission Ending Pike. Back and you can also keep all the loud ones in the loop by shitting recordings with your friends and family and most of the current expedient is powered by our own in house Michigan leading fight offended the modules separate built over time. Wow there's a lot behind the scenes that is going on. This is incredible from the patients so many questions. That are coming to mind so so that it's clear to listeners. As clear to myself a patient would come in to the to the office or to the clinic to the clinic setting. They would have the APP on their phone phone. They would open the APP and they would hit record I'm assuming they would be asking the physician telling the physician that they're going to record the conversations that typically what is what happens you know. We encourage patients to ask for consent because of the wiretapping laws and whatnot right and and so they begin to record the conversation and they record the whole clinical encounter. It is up to them. Some patients only record the conclusion right adopted recommend something that adopted Action or the treatment plan some patients interested in capturing everything so I think it is up to the patient. They can ause the incontinent between they can continue the resume they come back on the ad so there are a bunch of things they can do without
