"Welcome back to the outcomes racket. Today i have the privilege of hosting paul sorbo. He is the director of sales at wabi medical. Where they're helping the world to think better they're doing brain performance assessments with a very unique approach and in this interview. I have an extraordinary conversation with him. Learning more about how they're making a difference in brain health. And so with that intro. I am so privileged to have you here on the podcast paul. Thanks for joining me. Thank you chris. It's great to be here. Yeah so you know. We previously had another member of your team. Aaron from wabe. If you guys haven't had a chance to listen to that podcast go to the website. Go to wabe mad. And you'll see our rate chat with erin but today we've got paul on the podcast and he's gonna die of a bit deeper into the topic of brain health and what we're doing to do more and to do better within that field so before we do that though paul you know why. Don't you go ahead and tell us what exactly inspires your work in healthcare watts. Broad question to me I think for me it was always. I had a fascination with the human body whether it was from the performance aspect. i. I'm an ex bodybuilder. And so i always had this huge fascination trying to manipulate the human body to be the best at it could all the way through my undergrad. And we'll getting in about school. I had a huge fascination at the genome and and a genetic and solving things like duchenne muscular dystrophy with genomic other being crisper cast nine gene regulation. And you know all of a sudden. I started thinking about this and you know genetics. You're just familiar with upi genetics and and protonix. And when you really get into that you know you start looking at medicine as a whole and realizing that we are not controlling what we can. And that i want to continue to strive to make people the best version of themselves that they can be and continue to drive the education behind that specifically in now with lobby kind of the brain sector. Yeah that's pretty cool man so you did like weight training professionally or what. What's the story there. Never professionally I had a whole bunch of friends that were professional bodybuilders. Still to this day. You know on a fascination with muscle for lack of a better term probably unhealthy fascination for being I like to call bodybuilders the first bile hackers you know when when tides just now coming out and getting into mainstream medical community us bodybuilders. Been using uptight for twenty years and not in a nearly regulated fashion. Obviously very underground bro science for lack of a better term. But yeah i mean i. I'm five foot nine. I was all the way up to about two hundred fifty four pounds. It less than ten percent body fat which was not healthy by the way could punish shoes And realize that you know. I think that's a good topic of conversation about health. Though you know people. I think genuinely believe that external appearance can actually reflect internal health and that is so far from true. 'cause x i looked extremely healthy right. I ate what i thought right things. I had low body fat. I had astronomical amount of muscle mass for my frame but internally when i started looking at my labs my panels my lipid panels cluster all levels my ratios. My inner cellular calcium levels all of a sudden. I'm like close. I am the furthest thing from health. Yeah and you know. It's a good call and we've got a measure to understand where we're at and that's a lot of what you guys are doing with wabi around the brain so talked a little bit about the business and some insights about how you guys are helping. Health care leaders do their job around brain assessment. Yeah i think the key there to what he's done let me start by saying why doesn't do anything do what we do. Is we make information significantly more accessible so measuring the brain has been really underdone. Because it's never been a accessible be. It's never been affordable. Those are the two things that david oakley data joffe really set out to change e. g. and evoked potentials or. Erp have been around for sixty seventy years. The problem with both of those erp specifically was really only used in brain death situations to measure. You know long hospital procedure and prostate expensive and b. e. g. is really people are familiar with the g. from epilepsy studies. And these really terrible torture base you know. Eeg say league caps. You're just awful and they're expensive and they're not quick right so when you talk about measuring the brain you know. Are you going to send a client or patient to go. Get a yearly. Mri no are you gonna go send a client to get a yearly specs or anything else out there eeg. No you're not gonna do it because it's going to cost them. I don't know that many people that have five to ten thousand dollars our way every year. Nobody i mean right very hit. I know people that do it yearly. And i'm like that's excessive right but when you really look at that the problem is that by not doing that on a regular basis as we don't have a whole bunch of data on the parade you know it's not like we're able to just go in with a stethoscope and listen to the way than our heart is a. We haven't been able to do that with the brain and so really. The only clinton which measurement is happening is when. There's already a problem whether there's already issues of cognitive decline whether there's already ti stroke whether there's already behavioral sheeps and so we don't really know these baseline normative were supposed to be or house amongst progressing their cognitive science progressing as they age. And that's really. The foundation of lavi is providing a simple fast and affordable assessment that we establish a baseline and then compare subsequent. Scans to see how someone is progressing

Hiring a Website Manager
"I can't stress this enough if you are technically sound if you know your around your website if you built your website from scratch you may still WANNA consider hiring a website manager. What is a website manager? Well it's somebody that's going to manage your website pretty obvious right but no. Let's talk about what exactly that means. That means anytime you need a change to your website. It could be as little as updating a blog. Post to creating a whole new landing page or page on your website or adding images or media or building out a whole funnel for a new product. Every time you make some sort of change in your business or improvement or addition or new product this is an require you to update your website now most of us just roll sleeves and do it ourself but if you ever have done this before have you ever time yourself you're spending hours on this uh tweak and most of us do spend that much time because it's our baby and we like to play around and fiddle but when somebody's dedicated to do this for you they go right in the very surgical the get it done and they're out and they save you time and in the long run money but website manager does more than that they make sure all your securities up today yourself certificates Your domain is renewed properly you're hosting is up to snuff. You're not you know slowing down visitors. You have the right hosting the right bandwidth. They'll make sure all your integrations are working with your integrate with your crm or your payment processor. They're basically tech support for your website. Which is again when your biggest assets in your business now for most people that are like. This is a no brainer. If you don't WANNA deal with the tech but some of us like the tech I mean. Let's put it this way. I am a founder of a Tech Company. I built every single website for all my businesses myself. I manage them all myself. But I've come to the realization recently. I need to hire a website manager and we have because it's time I'm spending that I should not be spending as the leader of the business. I shouldn't be fiddling with the website really. It's a lot of fun and everything like that. And it's A good way to kill a few hours but my time is better. Spent helping the team making decisions making the right. Hire communicating the vision driving the team forward. I'm the leader. I have to lead. And if I'm spending time fiddling with the website that's not the best use of time and if I'm honest with myself I spend a lot of hours frustrated trying to get something done Because I forgot how it all works or have to look you know something on like stack overflow to learn a little bit about How to just something I might have forgot how to do something in a Serie Schimmel? You get the point. There's also a lot of time spent You know updating your security patches SSL and domains and all that kind of stuff in your hosting so you're going to save a lot of time. Now how do you find one? Well the best thing you can do is get recommendations. Ask any friends and Family. That has somebody that does their website maintenance. The takes care of their website. You can post it on social and crowd source and run some interviews interviewing these people that are recommended to you recommendations always best because They can tell you a little bit more about working with them. Not just the work they do. You know when you go to somebody's website or read their CV or resume. You kind of get an idea of their experience but not how actually is to work with them to communicate with them and when you have a reference recommendation you can speak to somebody and ask him directly. Hey how's it working with this person? Is it easy to contact them? Or they're reliable all that kind of stuff. That's how we found our website manager. But what if you don't know anybody and you don't have any recommendations well. Here's my recommendation for that. Go on up work up work as one of the best sites to find freelance part time. Full time Professionals that can help you make a higher especially in the tech industry crea detail. John Post. Exactly what you're looking for. How many hours while platform are you on wordpress? Squarespace WE BLAY. What kind of work you want them to do Maybe you're going to update the blog post but you want them to update images or ad pages create pages for you right exactly what you want them to do on a regular basis also the soft skills. What do you need someone who's a clear communicator? Written and verbal is willing to meet with you maybe once every week or once every two weeks that's up to you is able to use. Maybe some of your project management tools like Trello or base camp or slack. Paul all that information and post the job. Okay now what do you want to do search for people that have experience? Trust me on this. You WanNa find. Somebody has a wealth of experience in doing exactly what you're looking for. I like to look for people in this kind of position have been doing it for at least five years. I know that sounds like a long time. But YOU'RE GONNA get the cream of the crop and it may be a little bit more expensive than somebody who has experienced three years. But it's going to be worth it. Why because when it comes to a hires somebody in the Tech Industry? You save money by paying more. Let me explain if I hire somebody. Who's a senior website manager? Who's been doing it for ten years. Okay with other clients Knows their way around wordpress back and forth and my were. My sight is wordpress and I asked them to work for me. Let's say five hours a week. Okay this is just an example. Because they're so skilled they can get more done in five hours at a rate of fifty dollars an hour. So I'll be spending two hundred fifty dollars a week right versus hiring somebody for thirty dollars. An Hour. Sounds like a bargain right. I'm going to need to have them do work for ten hours a week. The same amount of work that one person only need five hours for because they're not senior. It's GonNa take them ten hours to figure things out and fix bugs in figure out what's going wrong and again up spending three hundred dollars a week instead of two fifty see. I'm saying here. This is out of experience. I'm telling you you get what you pay for when it comes to this type of talent and you're gonNA save money in the long run by getting somebody who's more efficient and can solve and fix problems and get work done quicker more efficiently and cleaner. So they don't have to go back and fixings later. I would emphasize you hire. Somebody has a very good communication skills especially because your website so high priority. You WanNa make sure that you can communicate with them quickly. They'll understand you You know and be able to implement and explain their side of the story as well as their side of things What they need to do or the recommendations for your website. You'RE GONNA pay a premium for that. But it's worth it going to save you time it's GonNa Save you money and the way to find out there. Good communicator read. The testimonials read the reviews on upward. You'll see the previous employers will say great communication skills loved working with them. The other thing you want to look for is attitude you want somebody who has got a UPI positive attitude going to be a part of your business partner brand They're going to be working on a Lotta Front end stuff. Meaning things that the public will see the need to have a can do attitude once you find a few candidates You know you want to invite them to apply to your job. Post inside upward actually run interviews and chat with them and my recommendation. Trial them out. I say hey. We're going to try for weeks. Seattle ago's if everything feels mutually good like we both want to work with each other in the future. We can continue to do it
Is Universal Basic Income Being Applied Today?
"I just wanted to briefly mention that though I've brought up a number of technologies that are fighting the corona virus. Few Times on this podcast of course as this fits into the main theme of this podcast. I absolutely wanted to say that. It's obviously the medical professionals that are putting themselves on the line and working incredibly hard to battle this pandemic. I think that technology is really cool. But it's clearly in this case the real work that's being done by humans but maybe to look at things a little bit more. Positively here Along with Italy here in Spain you may have heard that every night at eight or ten PM. We all go to our roofs or balconies and cheer on and support the staff in hospitals and clinics. I really hope that. This trend continues As well as starts in other countries as this global problem continues. I really think that the acts of solidarity like this along with seen innovative community actions like a free fitness class given by a personal trainer on his rooftop to his surrounding neighbors or a saxophone and guitar. Gem applauded by surrounding neighbors has been really great to see shared all over social media. But I think that this is also a very interesting time for different reasons so two episodes ago. I started talking of universal basic income or you. Bi as one of the first solutions to a future where automation eliminates a large proportion of jobs yet. Only in this last week did this future solution get thrust into the present or at least parts of it did so for today's episode. We will look at a few things surrounding. Ub I I the main criticisms of it secondly some alternatives and thirdly the current manifestations of it that are possibly starting to come about across the world in response to the economic crisis that we are so perhaps the most frequently used point against you is the laziness argument so it comes in many forms but ultimately says something to the effect of if you give people free money. They won't be incentivized to work but rather to be lazy as well as losing the meaning in their lives that were provides so this would appear to be almost common sense. I think that the examples provided in the previous episode on New Guy Really. Show a different story. There have also been studies that look at the results of several basic income programs together and they answered this question specifically one of these studies in particular found overall. The program's analyzed suggest either. No effect on labor market supply or a slight reduction in work and earnings so the evidence does not suggest an average worker will drop out of the labor force when provided with unconditional cash. Even when the transfer is large so they'll of course all pilot programs that have had some form of UPI have not been permanent and are thus not perfect examples. The findings do tend to lead one to think that the first critique doesn't necessarily hold up so the second main argument against you. Bi is usually connected to the price tag of such policy for this point. I have confess that I'm actually on the fence about it. There are really several arguments reports on both sides that I think I won't be able to make a solid argument for one case or the other in this podcast I will definitely have to invite people In the future who have more expertise in myself on the subject but this is also why there is so much debate around this issue and why there are so many alternative programs presented so as mentioned previously one of the main propose alternatives is for a UB I program that replaces all social welfare programs like food stamps housing subsidies etc. The argument typically made for this is that doing otherwise would be too expensive and that a nation couldn't absorb all the extra costs so the usual price tag is that a universal basic income or a guaranteed minimum income would require some thousand dollars per month to essentially end poverty so if we use America as an example. Some two hundred ten million people are above the age of eighteen and thus eligible for most forms proposed. Which would cost the American government two hundred ten billion dollars per month so this is about two and a half trillion? Us dollars a year which is really no minor some so whereas on the other side of the argument with a UB. I in place. Many societal expenses would be reduced or even eliminated like those connected to petty theft The prison in justice systems mental as well as physical health care costs talked about in the previous episode homelessness etc. Poverty has also been shown to be one of the most expensive things in our modern society so their across different Western countries that show that he's single homeless person cost the taxpayer an average of some twenty to thirty five thousand dollars per year. It's really no wonder. Then why those who promote UPI claim that the estimated costs are usually not very accurate. So the thousand dollars per month example also happens to be the amount proposed by the recent presidential candidate. Andrew Yang who I would argue really has been one of the main people pushing you. Bi into the public awareness at least in the US so Andrew. Yang's UB program better known as the Freedom Dividend was going to be mainly financed through new taxes on the wealth. Generating large corporations like Amazon facebook and Google as well as a value added tax and consolidating some welfare programs and I think that he did a great job pushing the idea that it was financially feasible to implement such a program but moving on with the other critiques of one of the more obvious points. I think against it is that it is in part wasteful in its approach so if everyone over the age of eighteen for example is to receive these payments then this includes people absolutely do not need it. Think of for instance Bill Gates who has an estimated net worth of some ninety six billion. Us dollars so an extra thousand dollars. A month amounts two point zero zero zero zero zero one percent game which is absolutely unnecessary and should be distributed to those who actually need it or so it is argued at least by those who propose a UPI so of course those who do not need a you guy could refuse it but in principle this can be seen as a valid argument against such a policy and finally one of the main arguments against you be. I is the dependency on a government for your survival can really bring along with it. Many connected problems so we might not even know the psychological impact of having an entire nation completely dependent on government. It might create a less innovative or more complacent society and one as well who would be unwilling or even unable to stand up to corruption for fear of being cut off from their main means of survival. I think that is something that is really worth keeping in mind especially as conversations about implementing. Ub Take place over the next couple of
SpaceX Starship prototype explodes in test again - UPI News
"Bob is covering an explosion at starship well a planned explosion Bob very good evening to you planned for why good evening to you good evening thank you listeners I've completed my February happy birthday fundraiser and they were very generous I cannot express how I appreciate people giving their hard earned money for something that I give them for free I really appreciate that but all right yes starship there it is this is I don't know if the plant explosion John but starship is they're building a series of prototypes with the going to be testing stuff and part of the things that you're seeing is the welding the puts the stainless steel hold together and that is the whole is also the walls of their fuel and oxygen tanks they are probably doing a lot of pressure tests which means they sometimes will pressurize things to add to fans and we don't know if this was the plan here but either way what happened is and there's a great video you can watch a behind the black I posted the video of it of the thing during their prep teammates for what was supposed to be pressure test and then it suddenly explodes and they literally leaps off the test stand and then falls on the car and crashing into a a starship prototype they're already beginning to build a the next prototype and they're gonna do more pressure test they say they might do this pressure test with Laura so it's not explosive and middle initial literally they would just simply be testing to see if those welds he'll let the ever in hold every time they do the test they're going to be asking whether the wealth hold and see if they can get him get the technology right so that they can put together a whole with well welding it together so that it can hold the pressure is necessary for a fuel and we go from a man to craft to a robot craft this is Northrup Grummond and they have a robot looking to dock with the satellite why do they want such a thing well they haven't looked they've done it this is a big deal John this is a very big deal this is something originally being developed by no orbital ATK which was purchased and merged into north of Grohman it's called the mission extension vehicle on the going to build a series of these and it's literally it's a service they're offering to the telecommunications satellite industry and to others as well whereby you've got a satellite in geosynchronous orbit it's in perfect working condition except it's run out of fuel well the mission extension vehicle that levy can dock with it and it's the these satellites don't have docking ports but with the MTV does is it uses the nozzle of the synchronous satellite engine as its docking port and it has a finger that grabs the nozzle and a box with it and then the extension vehicle in the V. then provides guidance and attitude control for the satellite and so they docked with the satellite that was built something like thirteen years ago they did this last week the first docking ever done for it with no government funds commercial commercial robotics satellite docking with a second commercial satellite that was never intended to be docked that satellite in orbit flick it doesn't eighteen use can use and now it's colonel doctor who the five years and bring it back to life it had been decommissioned is now going to be put back into service and be used and they have additional LEDs they want to sell this is a big deal this is the first step towards robotic repair maintenance and also the cleaning up of space junk in orbit they demonstrated that robots can do this is one detail Bob about robots cleaning up I have the space debris there are servicing satellites it's almost impossible to make a distinction when it's in space between and anti satellite weapon and a robot that means to be a sanitation man yeah this is this is true well to a certain extent however the the the I have space treaty forbids interfering with another satellite that belongs to somebody else without permission and so far known as pro couldn't act and anti satellite it says you have the capability of doing such things in a war but if there's no war going on so far and everyone is respected that rule in terms of cases where you want to maintain or extend the life or fix a satellite you make a deal with North agreement by mission extension vehicle or bike time unlimited this one it's in orbit is going to be a doctor this satellite for five years and then after that it will separate and it'll be able to to another satellite five more years and they have more coming so yes you're right it could be anti satellite but I think that should not be a reason not to do this because of the benefits far outweigh the negatives highlights a new paper in March March twenty twenty coming in March twenty twenty for a symposium ahead of us if all goes well the small sent revolution doing more with less Bob this is what you've been reporting on for several years yeah it is it what happened was I attended last week for a day a CubeSats symposium here in Tucson and it was a supposing we actually had students and principal scientists and engineers talking about their actual cubes that projects that are really ambitious the day was going to write this up I get a press release from Washington DC about a similar conference that's going to happen in a few weeks in Washington but it's going to be the typical Washington conference that I attended in the past he gets some big names they talk in generalities which is not true untrue about this coming school keeps that rate of evolution but the truth of the matter is that I was much more effective activity interesting to go to the one in Tucson because I saw a whole bunch of things for example thank you talking about the developing large inflatable balloon and handers reflective in tennis that they can attach to cube seconds would be many times larger than keep that would allow for high gain data transfer they're talking about using CubeSats to do astronomy monitoring stars in a wavelength normally came to earth and another example is monitoring galaxies but this keeps it with corporate model one galaxy for a period of several months to get data about it it is cheap enough that you could send the second set to moderate different galaxy and so there's all these different kinds of technology development that was really cool is interferometry where you have multiple telescopes you come find the images well they're going to build a cubesat which we use three D. printing to print out to log long beams like thirty feet long connected to the central Kitsap and the three together will produce to Mary sixty feet apart it's like a giant giant space telescope and that was really cool about that is the three D. printing in space by a robot so the kids have to coming down and they're really indicating how the space industry is splitting between smaller and smaller for the on man's part the flight and bigger and bigger which is state of SpaceX's scholarship for the band projects and SLS SLS the space of the seventh launch system the space launch system that has been delayed many years and most recently Bob and I reported another delay that was expected so I can't tell whether this is a new delay Arnold delay restated how is it Bob well it's understandable you have problems like this done because when I saw this article I had to read carefully to make sure he just wasn't a reversion of the delay I talked with you about your posting a behind the black last week but yes this is an additional delay last week they had predicted that the delayed for they were going to live from November of this year to April of twenty twenty one well this week today it needed that April of twenty twenty one is just too ambitious so now they're looking at middle to late twenty twenty one which would and I've heard other reports saying late twenty twenty one which means it's a full year delay for the first SLS mission one man's mission if it happens in twenty twenty one late in that year they'll only have three years left to meet the trump administration desire to get a manned mission landing on the moon by twenty twenty four I personally don't think that the possible it's not gonna happen there's a lot of reasons why not both most of the most critical of all these conflicts have funded it and secondly the technology and NASA's ability to build it is very very slow Bob is the are the serial delays on purpose because they can see that they're going to have to stretch this out so they give us just a little bite at a time or is this really poor planning on their part they get surprised the answer is yes order quote yogi Berra when you come to a fork take it because it's both eight they knew almost to you three years ago that they would have to make these long delays but what they do is they they they trickled out the delays in little bits to try to reduce the political and public relations hits to doing so of it yes the whole point of excellence is not to exceed anything is to provide a jobs program to Pauline and being there and NASA over a period of time and the cost plus contract football means the best thing that could possibly happen is that it gets extended because they'll make a profit and I want to just get more money so it's both John bel if it's a bad bad bad bad bad Bob what is C. lunch all this is this is a long convoluted story the launch was originally a partnership of Boeing Russia and Ukraine it was a platform floating platform that you could use as a launch pad and they use your cranium rockets to launch office with Boeing in Russian technology and they did a few launches in the nineties and then had a failure and basically went bankrupt but we wanted out of the business it eventually got out of the business by Russia giving them free flights on the so he use capsule for passengers I don't know if they sold those flights to anybody maybe NASA but so the Russia has control over it is supposedly as a private company mailing comical as seven is going to build it to launch commercial satellites they finally have get taken possession of C.
How to Be Kinder to Yourself Today
"One of the most common things I talk about with my clients and one of my favorite things to talk about with you. All and my clients is the concept of Highness to ourselves. How unearth is it that we have become so unkind to us when we are so kind to other people a been question in many of our lives and in my book? Okay one more plug for today. Five weeks to self confidence. The subtitle is guide to confronting your inner critic in controlling that relationship with your thoughts. You can buy it on Amazon or wherever you find your books in real life. The message here is that in order to focus on kindness for ourselves we really do have to acknowledge and become more aware of this negative voice inside of us not being our truest self. That voice is not you. It's the culmination of all of the negative things that have worked together in your lifetime overtime to get your needs met in mostly faulty ways in Male adaptive. I know not the best term but if the clinical term maladaptive ways so why one. Huge eye-opening technique that. I teach my clients when I can get you. All the practice said is the art of being kind to yourself. Also known as self compassion. The benefits are huge empower fall. It is so not our society today to be kind to yourself. Sometimes we get focused on it through acts of kindness like being kind. Somebody else is going to make us feel better about ourselves or this whole idea of self care mean meaning that were taking care of ourselves with pedicures manicures massages all really great things but not necessarily what we need in our lives cliches surround us. I'm my own worst critic. I don't know why I'm so hard on myself. All of these thoughts floating around in our brains we actually say some of them out loud but it's really hard to do something about them until we make that choice as I grow in my own life in my own recovery. I am more and more convinced than by the way. Yeah I do a ton of real research not Google research actual reading of scientific studies in my wheelhouse which is the psychological realm of mental health. And it is clear study after study that if we return to the simpler things in life not always relying on a substance or a thing in our outer world. Such as devices televisions or. I'm going to even go so far as to say like Peleton or something we have to buy to bring into our lives if we return to the simplicity of what is right in front of US sometimes right within us when we turn inward deconstructing the automatic relationship. We have with ourselves when we are nice to ourselves in the most simplistic ways. We can reap the benefits of what most of us want in life more contentment. That ubiquitous word happiness calm piece. It is right within you to do these powerful things in your life without adding a device or an APP or going to say it again a Peleton not only. Will you feel better if you practice these tenants of self compassion but they last longer actually having a deeper more lasting impact on your day to day life including your physical body? Now keep in mind. Your brain is physical so all this stuff we talk about in the psychological realm is housed. Right in your Noggin. Right in that beautiful head that you have on top of your shoulders. So what are the benefits of self compassion? And these are all backed by research. It can calm and slow your heart rate. It can switch off your body's threat response. Which is the fight or flee mode and just put that in perspective when your body's threat response is activated more than it needs to be which is for most of US anytime we pick up our phone. That's what the new studies are saying. We are putting our brain into threat mode when we pick up our phone or any time that we see our world as stressful picking up the kids needing to check off things on our to do list having to get enough sleep but pressuring ourselves to get one more thing done before we actually sleep. Do you see the trickiness of all this. Most of our day is spent in this threat response so the importance of self compassion the ability to call home and slow our thoughts our heart rate and potentially switch our mode out of threat. Response is so very important. It is the easiest thing if we can tap into to better your wellbeing by turning off that threat response what. The literature says is that it puts her body in a more natural state of safety and relaxation. Which is what we need to regenerate inhale it switches on an increases our immune system. It gives our body time in momentum to heal itself. Let's get down to what you can do to cultivate more of this stuff. This piece lessening mere threat response and UPI near moon system inability to have calm in your life. Let's look into how to do that? I we have to talk about. What is this thing called self compassion the easiest way to understand it is to simply look at yourself as a friend instead of treating yourself like your best friend wore those moments when you are loving on your child know that this same kindness and care and support is what we need and we are able to give it to ourselves? Let me repeat that you are able to treat yourself like a
Where's Canada's worst housing crisis?
"Wrote on P. is rental market not the type of thing You think about all that often Being out here in Toronto whether you're Vancouver Montreal but it's a It's a a pretty wild place I would say so. Tell me about even just one of the typical kind of stories. You hear from renters right so I've heard quite a bit from families out in Pi and they've been having a ton of trouble for years now. it's a really tight rental market not a lot of spaces particularly larger spaces. If you need three bedrooms. Let's say and they they really just can't find very much at all So UC on facebook all the time families pleading for any sort of tips on vacant units. They find themselves weeks away from Homelessness Day call apartment buildings month after month looking for something and invariably they hear that there's just nothing available. Can he give me some context Just in terms of how tough is it there. In terms of vacancy rate and and how difficult it is to get into these places to have numbers. Yeah absolutely so. If view all the way back to two thousand thirteen the apartment vacancy rate was about seven percent. That's pretty high. It's you know the type of rate where if you need you to place your there's GonNa be some options for you fast. Forward five years to two thousand eighteen zero point three percent so like nothing pretty much nothing yes and The there was literally nothing for three bedroom. Pi's at small enough place that you can count the vacant units quickly so circa twenty eighteen gene Given all the apartments that they have that means they're eighteen available apartments on the whole island so things improved a little bit in two thousand nineteen up to one point two percent vacancy but still the lowest on a provincial basis. It's still a really tight market. There's not a lot available. I mean the thing that really really grabbed me about this is that those are numbers worse than or even maybe now on par with you know the numbers we hear out of Toronto and Vancouver where these are the biggest biggest housing crisis in Canada. And how do people react. I mean you're based in Toronto when you put together a piece explained that no actually. The worst housing crisis in Canada is out east in Cranston Rhode Island. I think it's mostly surprise. You know when when you're based out in these cities you you tend to think you know this is where everyone wants to live in Candida. Therefore there's a ton of competition but in fact I mean there's there's a lot that's going on beneath the surface in. Pi Driving this when people hear about it from year here. We just think it's a place where you go on vacation or something but you know there's a lot of people living and working there and it's it's really tough and people they don't don't realize it mostly what are those underlying things that are driving The scarcity of rental units one big thing is population growth Pi. Okay I has grown a tremendous amount over the past say four or five years on top of that. There's just not been a lot of apartments built. I mean Pe- I compared with say here in Toronto where we're sitting Real estate market is You know prices are a little more modest. Let's say so you know years ago you'd have a lot of options for detached housing under one hundred and fifty thousand dollars Yes so you know developers is there there. They weren't really building apartment. Because you know someone with a middle class. Income Housing was pretty affordable for for ownership right. So that makes sense but then you get years. I'm not really building apartments. An influx of a ton of people and home prices have gone up quite a bit you know for a detached housing. Typical detached housing went up forty percent over over the past year. So now what used to be. Affordable isn't for a lot of people they need to rent and they haven't been building rentals so start with the first problem And I guess it's a really good problem for a place like P I have. Where did the growth in population come from right so The previous liberal government. They're made population growth with a key part of their economic plan. And really. That's that's a good thing right. You know when you're looking at any of the Atlantic provinces. They're really old. They need to get younger. They I need people. In a place like newfoundland their populations decreasing They desperately need people pe- I saw this and they said we got a ramp up these numbers so they started bringing in a lot of people that are entrepreneurship programs to bring in people from outside of Canada the trying to lure native islanders back to Pi. He is well so you know the numbers sound almost kind of funny over the past four years. Pi's population has increased by thirteen. Eighteen thousand. So that's just a fraction of what you would get in a given year and say the GTE shortly but thirteen thousand. That's nine percent increase over four years. That's nearly double the national rate of growth the highest growth of of any province over that spin so thirteen thousand is a big deal on an island of you know give or take a hundred and fifty thousand sure. That's a rough equivalent of that in Toronto would be what like three hundred three hundred fifty thousand people that span yet. Just you know if you were to blow it up Toronto wise I mean it would just be. We wouldn't know what to do with all those And what about the second challenge. I mean you mentioned that Now that houses are more more expensive some people are being forced to rent. Where's the new inventory coming from? Because again you think about how the bigger cities solve these problems like journal can throw up six new condo towers hours right. The developers are all over it. How does that work on an island with limited Limited resources but also just like space. Yeah there are definitely you know. The government airman has responded. There are more affordable units that are starting to come to market. They're throwing millions of dollars at this but A lot of what we're seeing. That's coming on and lot of develop developers are starting to reactor saying we need. There's a huge potential here for rentals. We need rentals but a lot of those are going to be at market rates right so P I like a lot out of a lot of provinces has rent control which for tenants is great. Because you know more or less that your rent increases year to year are going to be pretty limited. Let's I'd say around inflation two percents or so. But when a unit is vacated or a new unit comes onto the market the landlords can set it where they want right so the new listings. That are getting come. Available available in a lot is going to be a market rate. They're going to be a pretty high rate so the average rent in. Pi is somewhat modest. It's like you know nine hundred dollars that includes people who've been under rent control. It's they've rented an apartment for twenty years right on the island. But the new stuff you see you know fifteen seventeen eighteen hundred dollars for pretty modest accommodations so when you talk to people. They're either people who were trying to render. Just people who've lived there for quite some time. Where where are they feeling the squeeze and and what do they think the government should be doing one thing that you hear a lot from people? They're they're they're they're squeezes in a few different directions. One is that I'm just tons of families families that are unable to find the space so families of five. There are crowding into two bedrooms. As I mentioned earlier for three bedroom vacancies couple years ago there was literally nothing available so finding the space for families is has been a real challenge. Another one that I've heard about quite a bit is for students for Upi about about ninety percent of their housing is off campus. The only have a few hundred beds on campus. But what. I've been hearing from students that they're competing with the short term rental market a lot so sites it's like Airbnb. The touristy is still going in September when school starts so a lot of students are having to double up with other people who happen to have apartments wade out. The tourism season. Then get a rental for October. So there's quite a bit precariousness that you're seeing at the start of the school

PEIs election is next week. It could be historic.
"To what happens in Prince Edward Island. And I'm willing to bet that if pressed many of you would admit the same thing that needs to change there's an election next week and Canada's smallest province and some of the polls are well. They would make history if they turned out to be true liberal leader. Wade McLaughlin, set the vote for April twenty third, and according to the polls this election could produce Canada's first green party government to years ago. They had the support of nine percent of voters by last year. They'd risen to eighteen percent before bounding to thirty eight percent. This fall topping all other parties, including the governing liberals. A real possibility of the first green party government in Canada is reason enough to tune our ears to the island. But there is a lot more to today. That is probably a scape. The notice of Canadians beyond the east coast right now, most of us know PI from the beautiful way that it's sold to tourists, and that's lovely. And I wanna go there. But it does seem like we need to know a little bit more. Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Trevor corkum is a writer at the walrus and the global mail. He splits his time between Toronto and Prince Edward Island. Trevor how much attention does candidate usually pay to elections in PE. I not very much. I mean, I think most people aren't even aware when there is an election. I wasn't until about two weeks ago. Yeah. Exactly. But this is a nail biter, and it's has a chance to make history. So this is when people wanna watch what's going on there right now. So it's been an interesting landscape the liberals have been in power for twelve years. So since two thousand and seven and traditionally PE, I like a lot of the maritime provinces. But especially in PE, I the elections have alternated between the conservatives and the liberals before twenty fifteen only one other member from one other party had ever been elected in the history of PI elections, and that was one end EP. Member back in the nineties. What's happened is the green party has risen in the pools. And they're now leading so they've come from not quite out of nowhere. But in the last few years, they've really ramped up their popularity and in the last four out of five pools they've been leading the liberals it's a bit of a three way race, but the the greens look like they may be pulling out of the bag. What's going on in PI in general that would lead to this kind of change election because this is unprecedented in Canadian provincial politics? Anyway, it is. Yeah. There been a lot of interesting indicator. So PI people have this idea of PI being a bucolic rural place a place that's a little bit stuck in time. You know, a lot of our the advertising campaigns on the island of really played this. It's kind of a place where you go down home. You go to the beach. You have some good food. Everyone's very friendly. And that's all still true to a certain case. But immigration is one thing that's changed in the last few years. So. The population of PI's always been pretty low. But it's lead the country immigration in the last couple of years, so very robust immigration, which has led to strengthening of the economy. So PI's lead the country in a number of economic indicators GDP growth housing starts. I saw something today in the paper that said housing prices have jumped twenty percent in one year on the island. So you're you're seeing that traditional island also dealing with a lot of big city issues like housing like the economy like this growing inequality between people who can afford, those changes and people who can't. So the green party's been able to capitalize a little bit on some of the unease with specifically the economic situation in the inequality also number of people have moved to buy from other parts of the country. So the province has become a little bit younger than the other provinces in Atlantic Canada. And it's really that youth vote in a way that's open to these new ways of doing things. So. So a large number of people under forty have kind of broken the tradition of voting for either the liberals or the conservatives which for a lot of families have gone back literally hundreds of years, where if you are a certain family, you voted conservative were another family you voted liberal, and that's all just splintering away. Give me an example, because I'm kind of fascinated by what you said about how we perceive PI, thanks to the tourism commercials. Because I know that that is my main source of of images of p give me an example of what you see on the island today that you'd have no idea of. Yeah. I mean, there are a number of things I think if you're in Charlottetown one of the things that strikes you first off is the diversity of the population. So there's people have been moving their from literally all over the world. So the school board, for example, we'll give out notices to parents in multiple languages because of the diversity of the classrooms, and at amazing selection of ethnic restaurants from the Middle East from Asia. South America, Afghanistan, Syria restaurants that you'd expect to finance Ron or Montreal. But not in a city of forty thousand people Charlottetown has two mosques, for example that both been built over the last ten years. So it's an it's actually a very cosmopolitan small city. So those are just a few things you see sort of on the surface. How did the green party come to be leading the polls? Yeah. You know? It's very interesting because the green parties, I think in Canada, especially provincially have this reputation of being a little bit of the fringe party, you know, the party of older hippies and and of peace love and grooving us on. And I think increasingly elsewhere, they straddle a very interesting part of the spectrum where the greens have NPR have been very pragmatic, so they've emphasized fiscal responsibility. So balancing budgets, in addition to growing, social and an environmental programs. So if you look at the population of pediatric. You know, there are a lot of older people. And as I said a lot of growing younger people. So those are kind of the two poles of the population that I think have driven part of this this interest and the green party, I think we're seeing around the country and N P I this splintering of the traditional left right parties. People are looking for new alternatives, and the greens have been able to capitalize on that on ease with the way things of always been done. If we drilled down a bit on as with other maritime provinces very much the case in PI. There's been this real sense of this kind of old boys network or backroom deals being done in things like, you know, who's getting loans that kind of thing there've been a number of big cases in the last ten to fifteen years on scandals with the liberal party that of really disillusioned people with the way things are done. So in general time, they would then just switch their vote to the conservative party. But they conservatives on P, I have really had a tough. Time they've had six liters and six years they really haven't been going anywhere quickly. So the greens have capitalized on that on ease. But have also really tailored their programs to both rural islanders, and then people in the cities as well. Tell me a little bit about the leadership dynamics and play who's the leader of the liberal party, who's the leader of the greens. So the leader of the liberals I mean, in a way, they're they're puller opposite. So the current premier Wade McLaughlin is the former president of UPI he comes from a very well established island family. They're very well known. They've been political family for many years, he inherited the party or didn't inherit the party, but became the leader in twenty fifty and after Robert gives resigned after a scandal in government, and he did win a majority government at that time, but he seen as a little bit aloof two islanders. So he's got that university president energy around him. So people. Say, you know, we really like Wade, but they don't really warm to him. He doesn't have a lot of natural charisma. So for the last three years, the leader of the green party, Peter Bevan Baker has been a foreign head. The preferred choice of of premier for islanders and the support of the green party has kind of incrementally grown based on his own personal leadership. So he was he's someone who I would call an anti politician. He's just suggest an average guy. He's he's an emigrant from Scotland he came into a couple of decades ago. He was a former dentist who bought an old church in rural PE, I converted into cafe had his dental practice on the side. He plays the trumpet. He's a storyteller and people just really warm to him. He's very authentic, and he's the kind of person who you know, you just to stop and chat to on the street. The kind of person who had a fundraising event will be the first one up dancing is. Unafraid to kind of poke fun at himself. So that's something that really appeals to people on the island. How difficult would it be to translate? Some of what the green party has seen NPA I to a national level. I mean, we've talked a lot on this podcast about the the upcoming federal election. And certainly the left is in kind of a state of disarray in general. So there is an opportunity there. How can they take what they've done there and build it? Yeah. It's tricky based on our current electoral system. But I think a couple of kind of lessons that they've learned from their other provincial successes. You know, we know the grants of won their first seat until and Guelleh's. They won three seats and the New Brunswick election. I think the New Brunswick cases interesting because they won in downtown Fredericton writing. So very urban writing they won in the riding around mount Allison university, so small university town, and then they want a very rural northern New Brunswick riding, so. So they were able to appeal both to kind of a very local grassroots kind of rural population. People in rural communities who are worried about jobs and the rural economy, and they were able to appeal to people at universities younger students and then urban people of the urban left. And I think that's a coalition that if I were Elizabeth may I I would wanna try to emulate, and I think we see in the B C election and the seats they won there in the seats that they're targeting at the federal level that it looks like that's that's the formula. They're looking to repeat so really targeting some of the urban writings, especially on the west coast where maybe the end EP is done. Well, traditionally the liberals, but they're flagging a bit. Some of the the more rural ridings that tend to be around left leaning cities or left leaning region. So the country and then pockets were there strong youth populations like around universities. So all that to say is I don't think this if. If the green stew, and it's going to translate in a green victory at the federal level. But you know, we know that in the case of PI New Brunswick winning the first seat, then leads to a couple of seats. And then you know, who knows where it goes. So based on the current splintering and fragmentation across Canada, you know, we don't really know what's going to happen. But we do know that people are open to new ideas. What kind of new ideas are in the platform N P? So as I said, it's a it's an interesting mix because there's a real mix of pragmatism with some very forward thinking idea. So on the forward thinking side they've made a commitment to making the province carbon neutral by twenty forty five so investing in small loans to homes and small businesses for things like solar panels electric vehicles. They've said that they will provide loans to rural small businesses and entrepreneurs to
Why Is Vitamin D So Important for Your Health?
"Dr canal, welcome back to the program. Thanks now. Dr canal, I know that your top your extremely excited about the absolute barrage of information that's emerged in the past year or two on vitamin d you're saying the vitamin d revolution the vitamin d error. His physically started in the impact is going to be unprecedented. What's really going on here? Well, let me tell you just a little bit about how I got into this. Because I think it will give some information about how this evolved about eight years ago. I realized that vitamin d was going to revolutionize medical care. The reason I came to that conclusion is because I realized that virtually all Americans are vitamin d deficient. When we follow doctor's advice, and our government's advice, and we started putting on the sunblock and staying out of the. It had tremendous effects on the vitamin d levels in our blood. So I started a nonprofit the vitamin d council on there. You can read more information than you can possibly remember all about vitamin d. And I also realized that the amount of vitamin d Americans were taking whether it be in their multivitamins are trying to drink milk was pretty much irrelevant. The amount is so low it had no effect on vitamin d blood level. And when I realized that it literally changed my life, and then within the last year, or so I realized that to work fully to optimally work vitamin d needs a number of cofactors, it needs vitamin k to vitamin k one, but the more expensive vitamin k to it needs boron. It needs magnesium it need think. And we'll talk about all these. Secondly, I realize there's a difference between having vitamin d on the shelf and people can buy it or getting people information on the radio so people who are not taking it or. Taking the role in preparation can learn about it, and that's a big difference. So I approached a number of companies and purity agreed to make the vitamin d formula that I insisted upon and Secondly, I said, by the way, I want people to take this with fish oil. So what we're going to talk about today is Purity's offer about up complete vitamin d Formula one. That's unlike anything else on the market. You can't buy in the store. You can't buy it on on the internet. This is the only such formula that exists together with their ultra pure, molecular distilled fish oil. Now, let me ask you a question here because I'm a skeptic at heart, and I like to play the devil's advocate on the radio. And how is it possible that one vitamin in this case vitamin d can be involved in everything from cardiovascular health to immunity to body weight even dental cavities? I mean, I've heard stuff like this before you know, about vitamin C. What's what is different with vitamin d? That's a good question that let me just do one thing. So people understand exactly what sort of things have been discovered. And and one of the best ways to do that. It is to go back and look at Google news. Now, here's some headlines for major publications in the last couple years about vitamin d I'm just gonna read off a list of headlines when you think about it is truly amazing. And then these sorts of headlines have never been seen before for any other vitamin Newsweek are Americans dying from a lack of vitamin d London time neglecting vitamin d comes with a heavy price. UPI lack of vitamin d can affect thirty six Oregon Washington post vitamin d deficiency called major health risks. Ama news, that's American Medical Association knows listen to this back him, indeed efficiency may be the root of numerous health problem. That's the American Medical Association news. You know, it's just truly amazing. The reason that it's involved in prostate health, breast health, bone, health, cognition blood pressure, health, immune health, all these different things is. Because vitamin d Pat is not a vitamin it is truly the one vitamin you cannot get from a good diet because it's not a vitamin it's made in the skin upon exposure to sunlight, and what's eventually mate is a steroid hormone now Detroit. Hormones activated vitamin d is a steroid hormone. And the way they work that is they're the key. They're key to your genetic code. And some steroid hormones are key to only a few genes, but vitamin d is the key to two thousand genes. One tenth of your genome is waiting for the key to unlock it. And the only thing that can unlock it is Leiderman d that's why it's involved in so many different health conditions. Your body knows what it needs it just needs the key to unlock the right, gene? Now, doctor you say we need five thousand I use per day. Now, here's here's the problem. I went through the the health food store the other day, and I'm looking at most multi vitamins, and I'm even looking at vitamin d sold separately. You know as a supplement itself. Most of them have two hundred four hundred I use I saw a couple brands. They had a thousand. Nobody even comes close to what Purity's offering here. I want you to talk about why we need five thousand per day. And there's really only three ways to get it. I can either go out in the the noontime sun, which really isn't practical for a lot of us. And there's you know, the the skin concerns that you talked about before I go to a tanning bed again, not an optimal choice or I can supplement the right way with purity products, why the importance of this five thousand number wise that the magic bullet. Yeah. Because of a single fact, and this fact changed my life seven years ago when I was researching vitamin d I came across a number of studies that showed that if you put on your bathing suit and go outside in the summertime for about twenty minutes, you make between ten thousand and twenty thousand units of vitamin d in twenty minutes. Now, that's incredible. I thought about that. And I thought about that why would nature devise a system that made that much vitamin d that quickly? And if you look. At levels of people like lifeguards or roofers gardeners or something. They're levels are fifty or sixty or seventy so that's the natural level and studies very clearly show. If you want your level to be ideal your blood level to the fifty s sixty you have to take five thousand units a day two thousand units a day. We'll get your blood level up to maybe thirty two but five thousand units a day. We'll get your blood level up to fifty and if you take less than that, you'll get some benefits of vitamin d but you will not get the full benefit. How do I know if I'm vitamin d deficient? I mean other than there is a blood test, right, right? There is a blood test. And luckily, more and more doctors or ordering the test the problem with getting a blood test as I you have to get your doctor to agree to it. And then your doctor has to know something about vitamin d and many of them are really too busy to read the current research, and you have to go and have the blood test on there is there an easier way are their symptoms. I could look for that. When you tell me, Pat, you probably well, I'm not a lifeguard. So chances are and I'm not not a root for. Probably going to be vitamin d deficient, but other symptoms. I can look for not having enough energy is a common one aches and pains. The doctors can't diagnose interestingly, another is your musculoskeletal system. How kind of ready you feel even your performance on the athletic field. We'll talk about that later. How shark you feel mentally whether or there's sometimes you're in fog, it seems like you're just not thinking straight vitamin d is crucial for brain hill. Those are the most common symptoms, but it's important understand that most people who are vitamin d deficient won't have any way of knowing it because they've been deficient for so long. They think the way they feel and the way they think and move is normal. Now, you've written that vitamin d deficiency is probably the single most overlooked problem we face when it comes to to our health talking. You see something that's wrong. I mean what what's the scope of the problem here in the US, more and more. Studies are showing virtually everybody is bite him indeed deficient. Of course, it all depends upon how you define that. I mean if you define by. Item. Indeed efficiency is anybody less than thirty then about half of Americans are vitamin d deficient. But many people many scientists are now thinking that ideal level is forty and many of us. Now think actually the ideal level is closer to fifty. And if you use the cutoff the fifty than ninety seven percent of Americans are vitamin d deficient. Let me ask you this. When when people start supplementing properly supplementing vitamin d with a product like purity products getting that five thousand I use per day. What kind of a difference? Are they going to notice is it gonna make them feel better? Yeah. That's probably the first thing that they'll notice there's been affect on their feelings of wellbeing and mood by wellbeing. I just mean this feeling that you know, you want to live and the clues that we had sort of interesting. The clues we had to mood are very similar to the close. We had for heart health. We're gonna talk about that later. But but people who live the closer you live to the equator, the better your mood, the higher you live closer to the sun. So the higher the altitude that you live out the better your mood and mood improves in the summertime now those were clues that vitamin d was somehow involved, but just recently there've been a number of studies listen to this in the American journal of geriatric psychiatry. They looked at hundreds of people. This is what they found. They found that people with the lowest vitamin D level eleven time eleven times more likely to have a low mood and then professor Reinhold visa at the university of Toronto. Actually did an interventional study where he gave about three hundred patients. Four thousand units of vitamin d for a year, or so, and what stood out was their feelings of wellbeing improved, and they can feel a difference when they start to supplement with the proper. She takes about a month. Let me let me get this special offer because I'm watching the clock here. Purity has put together fantastic offer. You've got the vitamin d at the recommended dosage the five thousand I use per day. And you've also asked them to combine it with their omega three fish oils. And there's a reason for that. I want you to explain that the synergy you get they seem to make each other even work better. Plus, you're really excited about the fact that you talked into a pretty good all you pay for shipping, and the shipping deals pretty good. Yeah. When I approached curious, I said, you know, vitamin d needs. Again, these this special form of vitamin k expensive form vitamin k to it needs to boron, and I wanted to beat the patented boron and it needs magnesium, and it needs sink. And we'll talk about why that's important. But then I said it also needs fish oil to work together. Synergistically, and this is what I want you to do. I want you to. To give away a bottle of vitamin d a months of by that sixty capsules
A California City is Giving 'No Strings Attached' Cash to Residents
"Residents of Stockton, California have been through a lot from widespread foreclosures to the city going bankrupt. Starting on Friday a bunch of Stockton residents will be getting a monthly payment of five hundred dollars. This is known as the universal basic income married up larissa's senior fellow with the national taxpayer's union. She explains more about this program in Stockton on Fox News. A very targeted narrow program. It's not really a UB program at all. What it does it affect four percent of the population in Stockton. It goes this five hundred dollars coming out only goes to people below a certain income, which is actually the opposite of UPI programming. UPI program says everyone regardless of income, regardless. Exactly get the pay out there thinking being that this gets rid of the disincentives for people who are getting aid to not find work now in Finland and in Canada. They've tried these programs, and they have found the opposite to be true. And they found that by paying people not to work you don't create any incentives to watch people to the workforce anymore. As far as if these programs worked up ler says, it's amazing to me proponents WBAI program. They say that this is a way to get rid of inequality and to help people who can't work, but you look at the examples of places that have tried this that have really robust social safety net. And they even say that this does nothing to try and correct. Those inequalities and everywhere Finland and Canada as I mentioned before that I've tried this program have cancelled that because they have shown to be ineffective

Rolls Royce CEO on Trump's Steel Tariffs
"Any plans at this point for retaliation against US products. You can bet on it. Canadian officials are huddling as we speak that if Donald Trump doesn't in his words back down that they will respond with clear here though is that they will respond economically. But my goodness is it going to have a political pushback. You know is interesting in speaking about Speaker Paul, Ryan, who is pushing back against this saying it will start a trade war. There are many GOP leaders saying, Look, we don't want any part of the Trump tariffs and Canada plans to really hit that message home with their targeted retaliation. Here they will hit GOP states. They will hit swing states, they will hit industries. Perhaps even in Paul, Ryan's Wisconsin. That'll make it clear that this isn't going to work anyone, you know for anyone now having said that stuff, neat time and time again from these negotiations, we've heard rhetoric from lie has are We've always heard the same thing. He has always been pessimistic and Freeland from Canada as always been perhaps a bit too optimistic. What we heard is that she was fighting back, fighting back, hard in saying, Look, we want this to be a win, win, win. The minute it becomes. Zero sum game, There's no question countries like Canada will suffer much more than the United States, but make no mistake. The United States Mexico will suffer as well Patrick, what impact our Is this rhetoric from Trump on tariffs, having on the NAFTA trade talks, Trump wants a better NAFTA deal. Has this incentivize in any way, the trade representatives from Canada and Mexico to concede any points? The Not so far. The the the threat of tariffs, If Trump President Trump goes through with them next week, would only through ice on already fragile negotiations enough. The And I think the irony of of these tariffs Stephanie is the red states that got Trump into the White House would probably be hit the hardest you're talking about farmers in the Midwest, A An auto workers in the rust belt of the United States. And even in the southeast as well with farmers in auto workers there, It's a very a trade heavy area. The other irony is that we're not action. Early talking about punishing China with these specific steel tariffs, Paula, Obviously, Canada and Mexico are US allies. I wonder if there's any sense. I mean, the markets are clearly shaking off the feeling that there is going to be a trade war, at least today that that could change. But is there a sense among Canadian officials that this may be bluffing on the part of the Trump administration? I think they certainly hope so, but they've they learn anything from the Trump administration is just take them at their word and take it at Donald Trump's word alone and not as the point that they are still hanging on what he says. They still do not rule out the possibility that those tariffs will be imposed later this week. Now, if that happens, That doesn't mean Donald Trump on changes mind again. But it has been interesting to see the market shrugged this off. I think they were definitely bolstered by the Speaker Ryan saying he wasn't with it and certainly seeing it. Some of the more Let's say alarmist predictions from some of the companies in the United States saying, Look, this is going to cost Americans more everywhere. Even if it will help some steel and aluminum workers. Having said that seventy everyone has to be reminded here. This is the political script. The Donald Trump is writing and he will ride this out for several months. Even if it does appear to be hurting the economy, if he thinks it will help him politically. And that is the only thing that Canadian officials right now are banking, Paula Newton from Ottawa and. Trickle less Thanks a lot will the proposed a tariffs threaten many foreign companies that invest heavily in the US luxury carmaker Rolls Royce and its parent company. BMW could be badly affected by steel and aluminum tariffs speaking on quest to express earlier the Rolls Royce, chief executive stressed the importance of his company's contribution to the US economy. Roses, part of for the BMW group best you might know, and the BMW group is a major investor when it comes to the United States, not only in plant facilities, but also when it comes to generate jobs. For many, many Americans said, I think the BMW group brought quite some wealth into the United States. And with that, I would love to leave it because let's wait and see how that really pans out. Finally, tactful answer. There is really a Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu has left a widening corruption, probe back home to visit another administration mired in controversy and chaos here in the US President Trump welcomes his Israeli counterpart to the White House. Speaking to reporters that pair celebrated the planned opening of a new American embassy in Jerusalem. Mr Trump claims that move will cost significantly less than the proposed one billion dollars. He said it'll cost two hundred fifty thousand dollars. In fact. And the president says he may even attended the opening ceremony himself or Lieberman has been following this story from Jerusalem Orient watching these two leaders needed as always amusing a PM Netanyahu seem to really bend over backwards. A flatter Mr Trump this time comparing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital to the Balfour agreement. Uh, did anything it surprising come out of the meeting Warren. Not really exactly as we expected Netanyahu is often directed a tremendous amount of flattery towards Trump. And this was certainly no different. They hit their talking points. And this was as much as this was about the substance of what was said. It was also about the optics of it. These two leaders getting along well Netanyahu and Trump are popular with each other's voter basis. It was all about that picture. The two of them smiling together, shaking hands Trump said he may attend the opening of the embassy in May. It's the first time he said that, although we fully expect to be here in May for the simple reason, that is an easy win for Trump. It's an easy win for Netanyahu and these two leaders get along famously well, so Netanyahu made it clear. He wants to talk about Iran in combating the nuclear deal that they did mostly pro in private or Netanhyahu made a short statement about it right at the beginning. But it was pretty much on point in terms of what we expected from these two leaders are. Anna. You've been following Netanyahu's his political turmoil at home. And right before he left, there was a development and one of the corruption cases against him some bad news. It appears for Prime Minister Netanyahu. Can you bring us up to speed on that? It actually happened after he left. It happened a few hours, Just a few hours before Netanyahu and Trump met in Washington. And that's that a third one of Netanyahu's confidants turned state's witness agreeing to work with investigators in another blow to the prime minister. It seems These blows in these developments against the prime minister and his inner circle are coming every few days. No ever since police said they had enough evidence to indict him in two separate investigations who still has the support of his coalition at this point. So it doesn't have to worry about some leaked somebody toppling the government while he's gone, but it's another blow against Netanyahu in this comes just a couple of days after he was questioned under caution In another Graf Perot meeting. He is a suspect now in three different corruption investigation. All right Orrin LeBron reporting from Jerusalem are and thanking we did here from the opposition as well. Prime Minister Netanyahu Hill was expected to ask, asked for US, help to prevent Iran from draining a greater foothold in Syria will. I asked former Israeli foreign minister sippy. Any how big an issue that is. It's important to understand that it's not only a trip to Israel. I hear about Iran and Turkey narrow Bicknell less than I hear it in the Abreu Uh, this is a trip to the region and even to the world, uh, the idea We are talking about Syria. Uh, this is a day after, uh, and the the outcome cannot be Iran control Syria, and we heavy, Ron, and these controlled in Iraq. And in Syria and Lebanon, It's unacceptable. And I believe that the whole of say of Russia now, uh, since it's becoming very, um, uh, a very big in in Syria, I think that those should be in understanding in an agreement that, uh, we doubt any connection to us at whether we stay So go, uh, the need east to take Iran out of Syria and to minimise the tsar controlling the rated. Do you think that there should be more military intervention on the part of the US? I think we are not even there. It's important to to say that everything is on the table. Sometimes those a needs to speak about the use of force in order to prevent the use of force. Uh, but now we are Multi-vendor of frankly, the United States is not very active in the region, unfortunately. And it's time for the United States will conduct the Rita and then to deal with the some of the problems that we are all facing this at the meaning go for the leadership of the United States. And when it comes to Syria, Iran, Uh, there is a very commend, frankly, in the Middle East there is no very cubicle, Roland, so. And so the the Russians said there and therefore it's time to be more active when it comes to the Middle East. Let's talk about another potential leadership vacuum. You're the chief negotiator for Israel for many years during peace talks with the Palestinians ever since the US announced that it would be moving its embassy to Jerusalem. The Palestinians have not wanted to engage with the US. At least we don't know that they have publicly. Donald Trump said today that with Jerusalem off the table that gives us an opportunity for peace. The president also said that Palestinians are showing a willingness to come back to the table. I know that you must have contacts on the Palestinian side. So let me ask you tippy, Do you see any sign that the Palestinians are willing to come back to the table with the US as a as a negotiator? My feeling is the after the corrosion of Jerusalem, the Reserve fear on the Palestinian side, the bully would sealed. Over we'd be note, balanced and doubtful. The US can do is to speak with the Palestinian soil, send messages to do to throw the bulldozer likely. As long as the deal is really the ultimate deal between the Israel in the Palestinian and doesn't take in consideration the political problems of Netanyahu in the air. Well, Well, let's talk about that. How much Ed deep water is Netanyahu in politically and I have to ask you this if indeed Netanyahu ends up being indicted. Are you and your party preparing for the possibility of a snap election? Listen, this is the decision. We are all waiting for the decision of. Um, the legal, the legal is to the governmental were, um, the those that need to make the decisions. But it is clear that there is a connection that the more we have more information about what's going on in the boat to corruption that you teach this disturbing. Uh, I don't know whether we are going to face elections in the new future future. We've been, uh, the next few days This is the decision Netanyahu can can may. Uh, but I must say that this Well isn't great democracy and the nobody's above the low. And this is something that this really should big crowd off. Even those who supports Netanyahu and how you hope they understand that even though these are quite difficult Dem's dais for them. Sippy Livni speaking to me earlier now turning to Europe, the major markets are sizeable gains. Thanks to a rally late in the session. Germany's DAX surged one and a half percent. Germany's Social Democratic Party has voted to form a coalition with Uncle Merkel's Christian Democrats. So stability They are not the story though in Italy where stocks fell zero point four percent. Italian politics has been flung into an era of uncertainty. A populist revolt is threatening to upend the established political order. There Ben Wedeman reports on the aftermath of Italy's general election. It was a moment of joy three to five star movements thirty one year old leader, Luigi denial, and the numbers came in. UPI. A movement born just nine years ago, New by anger over corruption bureaucracy and economic decline is now the country's most powerful political force taking almost a third of the fractured electorate. He's a young emotion doco may seem to more Do you hope to Iraq. Tie-ins chose to break with the old system says pensioner unafraid Bill de Benedetti daughter. The other big winner was the Euro skeptic rapidly anti immigrant go or the legal, their share of the vote has more than quadrupled in cattle, General Dostam. But she's a it's clear yesterday. The Italians gave us a precise mandate of the League's leader McHale said veal, declares quality photos. Colombia to-to everything changes. This newspaper headlined announces while another paper throws up its hands with a body banner meaning roughly What a mess. The country is right for radical change. Incomes have been stagnant for a quarter of a century unemployment remains stubbornly in double digits. The young are leaving the country in record. Numbers can add value that you They go to Spain, England, American anywhere. As long as they can find a stable job, There's nothing stable here. Any more says, Rome resident Amandio Jida when he was buying any, give their area at all, let you love the last traditional parties still standing on a centre-left Tito Democrat, Gordon Democratic party saw its share of the vote fall from twenty five percent in two thousand thirteen to nineteen percent in Sunday's vote and Monday evening. It's Young once promising leader, former prime minister Matteo DNC but vowed to resign. As soon as a new government is formed, known could evoke kissy outpost CB late. Never newspaper columnist must see more Franco says the guardians of the status quo only have themselves to blame. So the first sir movement is the symptom of the failure of the traditional parties system is not the coal was the source of this failure. If you don't govern well, other the people may be more incompetent are coming and taking your place.
