"I'd like to welcome to the show, Audrey and Manlio Diamante from travels with AUDREY DOT COM and they've come to talk to us a better region of Italy you may or may not have heard of for Yuli. Venezia Giulia. Andrian manlio welcome to the show. Ain't you Chris and thank you for inviting us to be on your bucket today. Thank you Chris Thank goodness well, and we've picked a region of Italy that I couldn't have told you the name of I know where it is about. Where are we talking about? First of all, if we put this on a map Well. If we were to put it on poor looking at the most northerly and easterly region of Italy incense ranked. In the corner literally border the North would be Australia The you're on the right would be slow being young. Then we have the Adriana CCD so we're an also the region of vinet. Oh. So you're about a hundred and solid kilometers from Venice, if you were to be an Bene- some wanted to travel to live in his Julia. Along the highway that would be approximately about one hundred kilometers and. We'll get into his tryst. So that is actually, yes, that's correct Essentially up but would unit is the one that would be most typical the one that really represents reach enough. You're getting ahead of us. Before. We get there. Why are we talking about this region because I'm not going to try and say it every time we say this because you see it so much better than I do what is your connection to Fluey Valencia Julia Well. My husband is born and raised and in. So he actually also be Lionel which is a local language. I actually met my husband and he. Shot on location to Spain, and so a friend of mine asked me to stop in a visitor in Italy and when I did, I, actually met my husband for the first time in this was in ninety seven. And then he later on emigrated to Canada. Got Married. Will and why should someone go to really Well a food essential yet is one of those regions I mean most of us think that there are token room. Most. Now, there's nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately, the name as a reason, I'm right. I would probably say somebody if you're traveling for the first time to Italy to do the Venice. Florence, and the Rome but for anyone who's looking for a more authentic way of appreciating Italy, then you need to go into some of the regions that are less traveled and as you as one of those, and it is really in a very good location if you really think about it because. I so much to offer from the beaches by good idol. History going back to the Roman history, the lull of our history world or one history that is worse. The front was for World War One and some of the worst battles that were ever fought or along from the car so and these own so. which my husband can talk to you more about you have the Alps and will you can go skiing in the wintertime amazing wine the quiet you're y region is world famous. Now they produce some of Italy's best white wines and the photo of course is quite unique because. Latins. A mixture of different cultures the Australian. The. Italian. So it has for a traveler they can spend easily a week and this particular region. and. Enjoy it without rushing and seeing quite a bit and is not just about lying. It's about so much more and if they wanted to add a week. Of the Australia they ads Vania or they could advantage what did I do not doin? The. Bending on how they want to program their time. Excellent will in what kind of are you gonNA recommend for us. It was one week hurry and it would be centered around the fugitive and essentially in Rio. And some of the key points to keep places that I would recommend would be, of course, the as they would be the capital and then of course. We have also the cheated on the time of she that we have sunshine yearly, which is where my husband's mother comes from. And they're famous for the BUSHEL. And then of course, we do the mountain area could pop into Saudis for example, or we could go into van Saun name and Sony in. Leitch are two towns a really represent how he only that was devastating binary choice in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six in really showcases the people themselves how suffered this major earthquake? Literally As you experience that you were there, I did yesterday what about a thousand people who died back in nineteen seventy, six cents I would say a large portion of region was actually essentially destroyed in Seoul the two towns my wife is referring to there called been solely and Jim Malone and they're very they're close to each other right next to each other one of them is a UNESCO side and that's been. So it's a UNESCO side because it maintained. The original character prior to the earthquake even though it was completely built, but it's very touching in it's very characteristic of the regional freely. So we would definitely recommend it
What's the Largest Lake in the World?
"Siberia's Lake Cal is not your average. Lake. At forty, nine miles wide by three hundred and ninety, five miles long that seventy, nine by six, hundred and thirty, five kilometers. It's the world's largest freshwater lake and with history that dates back twenty, five, million years it's also Earth's oldest. But size and age aren't the only things that make this. Lake. Special. Lake by cow is also home to more than three thousand, seven, hundred different species, many of which are only found in the Baikal region. That's why by cows often considered the Galapagos of Russia. No in case it's bio-diversity doesn't dazzle you here's another but Julia fact. Lake by cow has its own version of the Loch ness monster. Its name translates to water dragon master and it's described as a giant sturgeon with a prominent stout, an armored plating along the back. The monsters history goes back centuries with ancient carvings depicting this terrifying creature. Interest peaked we thought. So here's a starter guide to this ancient beautiful and mysterious late, which is by the way a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lake Baikal is located in southern Russia near the border of Mongolia, its depth of five thousand, three, hundred feet about one thousand, six, hundred meters makes it the world's deepest lake about five hundred feet or two hundred meters it's also famous for its clarity of water and ice. When the lake is frozen, you can see dozens of meters or hundreds of feet down. And as we said at the top, it's also the world's largest lake that size twelve, thousand, two, hundred, square miles, or thirty one, thousand, six, hundred square kilometers makes it comparable in volume to the entire Amazon Basin? A first scale? It reportedly takes about three hundred and thirty years for single water molecule to flow from inlet to inlet. So. How did like by cow get so massive About twenty, five, million ago lake by CAL formed through fractures and shifting within Earth's crust. It wasn't Lake Baikal as we know it. Now, though experts believe it was a series of lakes similar to the Great Lakes in the United States while scientists aren't positive how lake by CAL went for many lakes to the behemoth. It is today they do have theories. It could have been sinking earth erosion earthquakes or increased water from melting glaciers although it's likely a mix of these factors and more. That unifying change took place in the pleasing epoch about five point three to two point five million years ago. But this lake isn't finished growing. It's expanding at a rate of about point seven inches to centimeters every year at the same speed at which Africa in South America are drifting apart. At this speed, some scientists believe lake by Baikal is actually an ocean in the making. The lake boasts twenty-seven islands, the largest of which spans two, hundred, eighty square miles or seven, hundred, twenty, five square kilometers and has its own lake mountains and the population of fifteen hundred residents. The locals connected to power van underwater cable in two, thousand and five, and we're connected to the Internet shortly after. Some Call Lake by Cao, the Galapagos of Russia not only because it has an impressive array of those nearly four thousand species but also because eighty percent of those animals are found nowhere else. One reason for this unique biodiversity is the lakes. Array of hydrothermal vents which are commonly found in oceans but lake by cow is the only freshwater lake known to have them. Cold water from the lake enters cracks in the Earth's crust through these hydrothermal vents. When the water reaches magma, it heats up, then returns resurfacing with minerals and heat. These rich minerals are probably the reason some of the lakes most unusual species were able to develop including several unique fish and the nerpa seal species, which is the only exclusively freshwater seal species in the world and its evolution is mysterious and some scientists believe it arrived by a prehistoric river from the Arctic But beyond seals fish other common animals found in the forests and mountains surrounding Lake Baikal include. Elk. Reindeer links wild-boar, and of course, the lakes frequently reported water dragon master. And this ancient lake has another air of mystery about it. UFO sightings. Many locals have reported strange lights and alien spacecraft throughout the years and several Soviet era documents mention ufo instance in sightings around Earth's largest lake. However for all of its natural wonder, amazing wildlife end stranger sides for lake cows one hundred, thousand permanent residents it's simply home. Made, occupations are forestry agriculture, fisheries, hunting, and tourism though that's currently on hold due to covid nineteen. Here's hoping they opened back up soon.
"What was so big about movable type. Well movable type meant that each letter had its own little block and they could be arranged in any format that was needed to make any text. Prior to that, the entire page of text had to be carved in one single block of wood like an enormous stamp. Now, consider the amount of time it would take to carve one such block then multiply that by the number of pages in even the shortest book. Any printing press was an improvement over hand-lettered manuscripts but the Gutenberg press could print over two hundred pages per minute which gave the world what would be called the Gutenberg forty two line, Bible. Books and the ideas that they contained were no longer the exclusive purview of the very wealthy. Greater access to ideas and information was a causative force behind such things as the renaissance, the Protestant reformation and the industrial revolution. But Gutenberg did not create the first movable type press. A printing press with movable metal type was developed in Korea during the Goria Dynasty, which ran from eight nineteen to thirteen ninety, two in a desperate attempt to preserve religious texts in the face of a Mongol invasion. The effort was successful but only just barely. A single copy of a single volume of one book remains. It's called the G, which is the abbreviated title of a Korean Buddhist and policy whose title can be translated as in theology of great Buddhist priests Zen teachings. GDP is easier to say. The key is a collection of experts from the teachings of the most revered Buddhist monks throughout successive generations collated by a monk named Kyogon. It was published in two volumes in thirteen, seventy two though the first volume has been lost completely. Further weakening the Gutenberg was first position. The Korean press wasn't even the first press that had movable type. The earliest known non-metallic movable type press was developed in China in the tenth. Century. That press used clay blocks which would prove to be too fragile. Though, it was thought to have directly influenced the Korean. design. There's also evidence that Gutenberg's press may not be an example of simultaneous invention. A record in the Swiss Museum of paper indicates a papal delegation to `gorio brought printing technology back to Europe. Korea's claim to origination carries some serious bone fee days in the form of two thousand one edition to the memory of the world program by UNESCO the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. Three years later, the Jiechi memory of the world prize was created, which quote recognizes instiutions that have contributed to the preservation and accessibility of documentary heritage to safeguard against collective amnesia neglect the ravages of time and climate conditions and willful and deliberate destruction. If the listener would like to see the Jixian person they might want to bone up on their French. Rather than reposing rightfully in Korea, the G. has been kept in La Bibliotheque Nationale France in Paris. It was acquired under let's call them unclear circumstances by the first French Console to Korea and past Tula Bibliotheque upon his death. The consensus in Korea is unsurprisingly that they would like it to be returned that cultural artifacts belong in their country of origin. La Bibliotheque adamantly refuses arguing that the Jiechi is out of humanity's common heritage and therefore doesn't belong to anyone. Which raises the question at least in this reporters mind. If it belongs to everyone and therefore no one. What would it matter if they gave it back? On a brighter note, a wood carving print of the cheeky is currently kept in the National Library of Korea. Sometimes a person we remember as the first to do something wasn't preempted by someone else. They merely failed to complete the thing they're credited with. Such as the case with Ferdinand Magellan the name long attached to the first circumnavigation of the earth.

Istanbul landmark Hagia Sophia reopens as mosque
"Muslims in Turkey today. For the first time in 86 years. Friday prayers were held inside the Haga Sofia. A gorgeous dome structure and UNESCO site in Istanbul. Politicians in suits, ties and surgical masks kneeling in front. Istanbul's most famous landmark, has been a museum since 1934. Last week, Turkey's president, wretched type, Erdogan ordered the 1500 year old building to be converted back into a mosque. Not
Turkey reconverts Istanbul's Hagia Sophia museum into a mosque
"Eight acres court is expected to announce today that the conversion of Istanbul's world-famous argue severe into a museum almost ninety years ago, it was awful. The decision would pave the way for the building's Restoration Mosque and we'll represent a victory of sorts for president recipe type one, but it may cause anger elsewhere, including in the Kremlin and UNESCO HQ, joining us on the line now is Hannah Lucinda Smith is stumble correspondent of the. Times Hello Hannigan off new thanks for being with US I. Guess this was what we had perhaps predicted nevertheless. Oh, that's not gonNA. Stop a number of people being pretty disappointed with the outcome. Yeah well. Absolutely I mean affair is such a symbol, not just in Turkey or not just in the region in the whole world at points it was built in the sixth century. It was the biggest cathedral in the world. It was the seat of eastern Crescenzi for more than a Millennium and then it's really been kind of the symbol of the struggle for the soul of Istanbul. I guess when the autumns took control of the city in fourteen, fifty three, they converse into a mosque, and then when Kemal Ataturk the first president of the secular republic. Took over the country he then. Signed an order basically deconsecrated intending into museum in nine, hundred thirty four, and that's the status it. It's hard since then, but it is such a powerful symbol for Muslims. Christians and also for the Turks who are really bondage this idea of a second second they sit. It's kind of one of the ultimate symbols of their secular country. Just when you're out, and about as it sounds like you are indeed right now, is this one of these things where people are talking about it, and it's upsetting people, or is it one of these strange things? Actually seems to be much more stark much more controversial through the prism of I'm in London or etc. People looking on from Moscow which maybe we'll come to in a in a minute it does it excise people out in about. March she stood in the courtyard. Safia right now. It is a few Tori style. It's actually quite quite mean that's mostly because of the current virus pandemic coming normally at this time of year that would be crowded with tourists actually took his most visited tourist attraction, but I think the interesting thing. Is that inside Turkey this debate? That's not new. It's been going on for a couple. Couple, of decades, it's a question that sort of comes around quite six. In fact, you know I've I've been in Turkey for seven years. Now is the ton. This is come up in my time here and so there is this of feeling of fatigue I you know this is just the same policy policy again but I think it's undeniable, the for certain positive the Paul is. Very, much behind prison on the move is part of the society would be seen as. A big victory pick symbolic victory, but I think in terms of the kind of. The opposition to it. A lot of that comes from outside country. As you mentioned that the star obviously the Greek government's in holy. They still see Istanbul Constantinople. This is the as the center of Greek Orthodox also the Russian Orthodox Patriarch earlier this week, voiced his objection and of course UNESCO Ted. This is a world heritage sites listed by UNESCO. That's partly because of the The mosaics that were uncovered once this was ten years. In the nineteen th that is. On. The big questions is of course. If this is ten back into a mosque, what will happen to those mosaics depict Christ pizza version married picked him of the apostles. You know seen in, Islam, FIT Is is not allowed inside mosques. So this is the kind of places where the real objections are coming from, but it's quite interesting I'm you know it's? Really doesn't feel like much. Is happening at the moment here high? Sophie, let's see. We got the announcement in June a couple of hours. That's what we're expecting so. Possibly something will happen after that, but it's kind of. Yeah. It's still the same very peaceful, very unique. Is indeed sort of an eerie call just on some of those other international stakeholders. And he'll be watching on. We mentioned already you mentioned the Russian. Orthodox Patriarch of course. What about the relationship mean does this tell us anything about the relationship between assemble in Moscow more broadly, maybe more politically because there's various other sort of proxy disagreements agreements. There's other places Libya that seemed to sort of muddy. The waters is this. Does this need to be to be viewed in that context in your view? Show, I think the relationship with Russia is actually the one thing that might give president or pause for thought on this now what we see as I said before the Greeks are. Very opposed to this the US. State Department might POMPEII stems as well, but you know that's kind of old hat fred when he doesn't really care about. Stoking rows with Greece and with the US. Because he's got huge amounts of disagreements with those countries anyway, but when it comes to Russia, it's been quite an interesting situation in Russia. Turkey for the past five years on one level as you say in Libya also in Syria they're. Backing opposing forces, but at the same time, the personal relationship between two President Putin has gone incredibly close, and in other ways. Russia has been backing sick. I guess trying to woo. Tick to a certain extent away from its more traditional allies in the West, so we've seen for example side of the one hundred defense system. From Russia Turkey we've seen many many pets meetings in about trade and defense mutual security between. One impeach him now. The question is if this. Decision goes ahead and the conversion goes ahead then how much opposition will come from from the Kremlin? Clearly, the Patriarch Russian Orthodox Patriarch. Expressed his opposition. That's to be expected, but we also know that religion plays a big part in Russian. Politics today, so would it. Would it carry on further? The featured does it were? Would President Putin be the next person's kind of expresses displeasure, and how would that affect the relationship Tweeden's? I stopped really great to speak to you and thanks for reporting for us right from the scene of this Hannah Lucinda Smith In estan standard joining us on the briefing Monaco Twenty Four.

Trump WHO funding cut prompts criticism as virus spreads
"This afternoon president trump said he is severing U. S. ties with the World Health Organization over the U. N. agencies handling of the corona virus pandemic we will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs the president did not take questions during the roughly ten minutes long rose garden address which focused on China and here's global health correspondent Jason Beaubien was listening and he joins us now hi Jason hi Mary Louise prison trip has been threatening for months now to pull the US out what exactly did he say today about his reasons his primary complaint is that he says China's been covering up this outbreak and that that allowed it to spread all over the world he says the W. H. O. went along with these Chinese efforts to mislead the world and he says China has total control of the World Health Organization the speech blames China for the pandemic and accused the W. H. O. of being China's accomplice and that and do we know why now is there something he referred to that he says forced his hand to announce this today you know that's really unclear A. on may nineteenth he gave the WHO's thirty days to reformers said he was going to cut off funding to them entirely that was in the middle of the world health organization's main annual meeting well now it's only been ten days it was never clear exactly what the reforms were that he was asking for WHO's even expressed that they aren't clear on what are the reforms that he's looking for from them it has been on my mind is does the president actually have the authority to unilaterally decide I am terminating this relationship with the world health organization that also isn't entirely clear I you know he has pulled out of several other U. N. agencies he pulled out of UNESCO the cultural arm of the U. N. in twenty seventeen he pulled out of UNHCR the UN human rights council in twenty eighteen the WHO's somewhat different it's a member organization it's sort of like the U. N. itself Congress authorized the west to join the World Health Organization back in nineteen forty six after World War two and the WHO's charter it actually doesn't have an exit clause most governments are trying to get in rather than get out Taiwan for instance has been lobbying very hard and that has been something that the trump administration has really argued for is Taiwan's involvement in the WHL but trump however certainly can terminate U. S. funding to W. H. O. U. S. is the largest funder of the World Health Organization he can tell scientists at the CDC to stop working with the agency he can pull out of any trials that might be going on for for vaccines are testing of pharmaceuticals to to potentially treat Kovin yes he absolutely has the authority to do that just to step back for a second I mention this was during a big ten minute event that was mostly focused on China what more do we know about this disagreement with the World Health Organization is it is it coincidence that he made this announcement while he was talking about China yeah it is I don't think it's a coincidence at all the speech in the rose garden listed a lot of trump's grievances with China at the World Trade Organization was one of them Hong Kong trade the coronavirus and regarding the covert pandemic he blames China why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China it went no where else it didn't go to Beijing it went nowhere else but they allow them to freely travel throughout the world including Europe and the United States I have to point out that this is simply not true China had cases that spread to every province and territory in China including Beijing yeah and fact check another thing is there a idents that the W. H. O. was working with China to cover up the severity of the outbreak there really is no evidence of that this seems to get at the trump administration's misunderstanding of the WHO's role they have no authority to go into another country and tell that country what to do or force them to disclose anything the W. H. O. simply reports what China or any other member station reports to them and the W. H. O. says they have raised the alarm early and often about this
Walking the South Downs Way in England
"Welcome amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about the south downs way. I'd like to welcome to the show. Aaron Miller from the Armchair Explorer podcast at Armchair Dash Explorer Dot Com. Who's come to talk to us about hiking? The south downs way in England Aaron. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much Chris. Pleasure to be here well Erin. Why are we talking about the south downs way? And can you put it on a map? I first of all I come from this area so I'm passionate about it. The South downs way is I think. One of the most beautiful but lesser-known hikes in England in the south of England. It's a hundred mile pot that stretches from east which is south of London right on the coast and it goes a hundred miles west to winchester and it's a beautiful route because it follows the spine of the south downs. The entire way on the south downs being a series of hills mountains hills. We're talking the south. Downs is beautiful gentle rolling hills that stretch of this way and into central English landscape. When you picture that quintessential Englishness that gentle rolling hills in arable farmland and old pubs little tiny villages and sheep and cows. Because you're on the spine of these down. This incredible view to one side to the south of you is the English Channel Sparkling Blue Sea in and then the other side is this wheeled. Which is this valley. That seems to stretch on forever. And IT'S COOKIE CUTTER. English field far as the I could say. And what makes this really special is? It's the national trail for south downs. National Park which is England's National Park. I think turns ten this year. So it's really a working landscape for like for your listeners. That come from the states or other places. I love the national parks in the states. I'm a huge fan right about them. A lot and most of them are obviously protecting. He's wild spaces. But the town's national park is a little different is actually a UNESCO biosphere reserve which is an award. That's not been given out to that many places and it's to do with the relationship between a land and its people and the sustainable relationship harmonious assistance between the ecosystem and the people that live there and have lived there and work that land for centuries thousands of years in fact. So what you get. Is this real sense of living landscape. It's not a national park which is devoid of people cut off from civilization It's a national park where people have existed for thousands of years the south downs way. In fact it's been walked for at least eight thousand years. Have records of that so when you in this room you really? Following in the footsteps of people that have worked for thousands of years. There's age hill forts. There's Bronze Age burial mounds. There's Roman history so you get a real sense of that as you will through an feel like that history and culture can imbue a place with debt when you're there you get the sense of this living landscape that is very typical of England's and very friendly in welcoming you're passing through these little villages and it's a little off the tortoiseshell because I don't think many international tourists do so when you coming off the trail to stay in these tubs or these different places overnight. You really stay in local One a drop down to this pub called the five bells and the local cricket teams in having their Green Tea and Gossiping About Pu. Bakes the best scones and all that sort of stuff. So it's really you're eavesdropping on this. Little World of the south of England and I think a lot of people when they think giving they think of the south of England to landscape inspired love artists over the years for everyone from Virginia Woolf in the blooms regroup to painters and musicians. So you really feel like you're walking through a landscape that has a lot of depth battle texture to it and there's a lot of great beer too so that was helps o'clock and one thing to know is when you talk about this being a national park in UK the UK Veasley being a smaller country than the US. Where I live doesn't have as many national parks. That only has fifteen so when you say. It's a national park. It's one of just over a dozen national parks in both England. Scotland and Wales altogether. So obviously fifteen are the fifteen best sites that were worthy of being named National Park. So where are we starting? So there's two options I started in Eastbourne which is on the south coast and made my way west from there and I did that for a special reason because when you do it that way there's a really great finish to the hike which I'll I'll keep his as a surprise for example a Lotta people choose to do it the other way round. It's the same elevation same difficulty. I think a lot of people choose to do it the other way round because when you begin winchester you slowly make your way closer and closer to the finish. This really dramatic finish walking towards east born in this place called the seven sisters. Which are these beautiful chalky cliffs that the White Cliffs of Dover the famous cliffs on the South Coast and these be bit as beautiful? I did it the other way and I also did it in a very fun way. I did it as a one hundred mile. Pub CRAWL

Sabrina Ionescu on Her Next Move
"Hey Sabrina how's it going good her you that Sabrina UNESCO the presumptive number-one pick tomorrow's WNBA draft? I'm good so the draft is tomorrow night I tell us. What is the scene at? Your House can't be like I'm really just going to be with my parents. My brother and his wife and the twin brother just a small group of us that have been together and just watch the TV in. Have a good time. Are you going to get dressed up in any way which these days means just putting on pants with the button? Yeah No. I'm not going to wear a dress or anything. I think I'm just going to put on jeans and a shirt. That's big in the big. That shows you're serious. I can't remember the last time I wear jeans. But that's neither here nor there. You are not the only duck headed to the pros at your teammates. Bali Ruthie Hubbard are both being projected as first round picks which is of course a reminder to everyone of how good the team was obviously the tournament. Being canceled was a big disappointment after you return for a final season. I want to ask about it this way. What do you think you gained from coming back for that last year? I think I gained so much just maturity leadership and just really the relationships that I built during that last year I mean so many people were excited and happy that I returned in. I mean I think the community just around women's basketball at in Oregon grew when so it was really eye opening to be able to see all the relationships that I made during that year. And just how close a as a team that we got so Obviously that translated on the Evolving my game getting better on all sides so the drafts is happening. Which is great even though it's virtual but there is no certainty right now around the actual season. How are you wrapping your mind around that yet? I mean it's hard trying to figure out when to ramp up training in exactly you know knowing when the seasons GonNa be played in when you're supposed to be in your prime in so just trying to do everything I can to stay in shape so as of now. I'm just running playing basketball working out. You know not trying to do too much too soon. Just because I'm not sure when the season's GonNa start but just staying mentally and physically ready you have wanted to play in the WNBA. Since you are very young we have video evidence that three laws just throwing the ball around again a lot of experience playing on my brothers ten foot from overall value on my basketball experiences looking forward to anymore my family has always been there for as Beijing to keep pushing David. Wnba and now that it's here it's sort of at your footsteps. How do you feel it will be different from the basketball? You played so far. I mean it's going to be completely different. Just the physicality the level of competition. It's kind of just a new way of taking on the game in a new way of basketball. It's going to be completely different than college. High School anything that I've ever done in some really excited for the opportunity to get better and just learn finding different ways to look up to not only my teammates but other veterans in the League. Transfer Ball game in that aspect. Would you anticipate being the most challenging part? Probably just getting adjusted to the physicality in the speed of the game. I mean it coming in as a rookie. There's there's players there that you know I've been planning for ten plus years so they're gonNa make sure no they let you know that you're a rookie in so I think that aspect is going to be fun but also challenging. You got a preview of the pros last November when your team played and beat team. Usa Oregon ducks defeating the United States. National TV ninety three eighty six. What was that like? It was awesome to just be able to share a court with them and learn from them. Obviously the wind was awesome. But I think it was even more special that you know. We're able to sell out crowd against team. Usa just learn from them engage in conversation with them and be able to share court with them because not a lot of people say that they've done that. Was there anyone on that court? That made you geek out a little where you're like. I cannot believe I am right now on a basketball court with person I mean for sure. Like suber Diane Atrocity. There were so many players but I think those would probably be to my favorite just because of gotten to know them a little bit in in being able to play with them. This was an honor so every mock draft every analysts every article has you projected to be the first overall pick. How does that make you feel? I mean until my name's called until I can sign the paper. I'm not too excited about it. I don't WanNa be disappointed so I never expect anything so obviously very humbled excited about the opportunity to be playing in Brooklyn in that organization until here might many call notes official kind of just keeping up level so if you did go first overall a Newark Liberty. Were ten twenty four buses in anywhere you go near the top you'd be on a rebuilding team. How does that strike you joining a team? That's not already on top. I mean I did that organ for the last four years so I know exactly what it's like having to come in kind of build a program from the ground up so that doesn't scare me at all. I'm excited to be. You know a piece of the puzzle in hopefully get things rolling when you look back at your college career. Take stock of it. What was the most special moment to you? I probably just say time with my teammates and getting filed for there were so many highs through those four years in so many great wins and just being able to do that with a group of girls in team that really cares about each other was very special. What was the lowest moment? Probably losing in the final four on my career short. Those two probably the worst. How did you get the news that the tournament was cancelled or coach? Had texted us. Basically just said you guys can stay where you are with your families. You don't have to return gene. The tournaments cancelled arm. Sorry in everyone was responding in that group messages. Our team were chatting so you let us know and obviously it was heart breaking out again. You were expecting it to go that direction. How long did take you to kind of process? You know. I wasn't really processing it. I try not to think about it too much in just like all right. This is out of my control. It is what it is in Kinda. Just try to look forward on on what was next in. There are so many things going on that I didn't really you know. Focus on it too much in. Probably they look back into Swish. That we couldn't went on with the season so we could have seen how it would turn out in what have been able to play my last game knowing it was my last game but just not to look back on it too much. We had an episode. Fivethirtyeight ran a simulation on the tournament. They head Baylor winning now. Our analyst opposed that idea. How do you think it would've played out I don't think we were going to lose again. I guess. Take that as you want it but I did not see us losing again. So that's all I can say. Well I think watching the draft and seeing the number of players who were going to be taken first overall. That doesn't seem like a outrageous proposition. No three out of the top ten probe. We're going to be going to the League from one team that speaks for itself and super excited for my teammates. But I do think it speaks about what we had as a team. They're probably not likely that another team. Whatever you know. Get to that point again. What is the aspect of playing regularly that you miss the most just competing in playing games especially an Eugene is having our fan base in projected to have two more sellout crowds probably about twenty thousand people in Portland if we made it so regionals and so having that support system implying a real game something that all that are missing right now? You mentioned that Oregon Team USA. You guys sold out a game. Obviously you have gotten a lot of people excited about women's basketball some people that maybe weren't as excited before. How do you hope to continue that? When you get to the pros. Yeah I mean it's been awesome sooner transformation in Eugene with fans of for my first year to my last than new hopefully being able to bring To wherever team I end up in Kinda just change the way that they view women's sports in hopefully can bring joy and happiness not competing that is kind of addicting and people do want to be a part of that in watching that culture so hopefully just taking matt from from what. I did an Eugene in bringing that to To whatever team on

Bridging the divide my goodness but in all the talk about Italian Coffee Culture in the UNESCO bids I wonder is there an economic economic motivation here. Oh yes yeah. There is but the economic motivation isn't within Italy. It's about Italian roasters. Coffee brands feeling the squeeze from both both the Nestle capsules that have taken off around the world and what we can classify sort of as hipster specialty coffee and so- Italian Espresso producers want to claim their position as the originators of the Espresso Espresso culture throughout the world.

But there's a book that I'm actually kind of going through now written by a woman, who's a professor at Stanford really goes into UNESCO. And a lot of the problems in in really how this organization was founded before the world heritage stuff ever happened. You know, UNESCO. They're big claim to fame with saving the temples of Abba symbol, and a lot of the other temples in Egypt right ever going to put underwater when Lake Nasser was created from the ask one High Dam, and they basically recovered these temples was kind of a big race to save them before the. Waters got there. So they disassembled them and move them to hired round. And it's just really become more and more politicised over the years. And you know, there's a community of people like myself that visit a lot of these sites. I've almost been four hundred now, and I wait, can you just can you? Tell us the most ridiculous disappointing almost joke of UNESCO site. You've ever visited you must know give us the best example. There's a couple of come to mind the White City of Tel Aviv. I've been there twice. Oh, yes. Time once I was with a guide, and now Israel is full historical places. Right. No question. No doubt. These places are should be real could sites. But. Yeah. They're like modernist buildings, but none of them are really preserve people are just living there. You have no idea which ones are which I was even with a guy the second time, and we were kind of scratching our heads. There's one you know, and the Czech Republic there too. They have a lot of great sights on. But there's one of each of which hours there, and I'm like, okay. This is on a prototypical Bavarian like millage, unlike okay, if that's true. Why does that make the list lots of smaller? Medieval cities in Europe, western Europe. They're kind of like a diamond. There's ever more cathedral being stuck on the list the exhibition hall in Melbourne. I didn't really understand a lot of the sites like that are alien tolliday sites. There's nothing to see because the what makes that site special has been dug out of the ground and put it in museum. So the site itself is is just really nothing the place where they found Java man on the island of Java, Indonesia visited there there's just nothing there. Really? There's just a very poor museum.

Schaefer is a UN specialist at the Heritage Foundation, a Washington think-tank. He says UNESCO is a perfectly fine organization. But when it voted to recognize the Palestinians as full members. It undermined an important US policy goal. Principally are interesting trying to establish a lasting peace in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians are. Been an effort to try and get international recognition absent a negotiated peace with Israel that Trump administration cited anti Israel bias as one of its reasons for leaving UNESCO. But observers say things have changed at the organization in the last year under its new director, former French culture minister Odelay as who happens to be Jewish which is vital today to bring back peace that as as speaking at a recent UNESCO conference, Israeli and Palestinian delegations jointly supported more than a dozen initiatives that UNESCO this year, and the organization's leaders had hoped the US and Israel, which decided to leave UNESCO alongside the US would reconsider. There's no other organization, quite like UNESCO. That brings together the world's education science and cultural networks that Stephen Jordan CEO of the institute for sustainable development.
