"Energy infrastructure is slowly being repaired after being attacked by Russian missiles, though millions are still without power. I'm joined by Victoria Vishnu of the independent anti corruption commission in Kyiv and doctor Jenny mathers saint senior lecturer in international politics at aberystwyth university. Victoria, thanks very much for coming on the show. What's the latest on the electricity and water situation? Good morning. Well, Keith was still recovering from the latest attack. And I highly doubt we're going to be able to recover before the next one. As of now, we are slowly moving towards regular shortages of electricity, meaning only scheduled blackouts, so to speak. The water was back the day after the attack. The biggest issue for us, I would say, is right now is the Internet and mobile connection because I, for example, if in an area where the mobile network is a huge problem and usually when we do not have electricity, it almost automatically means that we do not have any Internet at all. Now yesterday and today, as today as well, we do have electricity, but a huge part of the city for some reason is experiencing tremendous issues with Internet. It just does not work. And because of that, you can not reach outside world. You can not text your Friends, get out, pay anywhere, cashless, get out, use ATM to get cash, you have to use Uber to go somewhere. You're basically digital isolated. And if you ever been to Ukraine in the last 5 years, I would say it's probably noticed that we are extremely digital in our daily lives and that's such a problem as lack of any type of Internet is pretty big for us. And in fact, the day a lot. But overall people are standing, people are standing firm, tired, but firm. So will endure. Have there been further attacks over the weekend? There has been a lot of attacks on the front line. I would say that they are daily shelling with some of the regions that are close to the front line, especially for some. It's been quite tremendously shelled in the last few days so people evacuate from this area as much as fast as they can and as much as they can. Basically, all the eyes right now on your song because Russians are not really merciful here, which was expected. How are people preparing for winter? While there are two different levels, how people prepare there is a governmental level and the latest after the latest attacks, the government announced that their opening more than 4000 of so called invincibility points. There you can change the charge your phone, use the Internet, it drink some hot tea or coffee, spend the night, even. So these points operate in all of the regions, so people now were to go in the case of emergency. And there is also the individual level. People also prepare themselves for the winter and any possible outcomes. For example, if you could see the Ukrainian analog of Amazon, it is blooming right now on so called survival kits and any necessities possible, like starting from lightning on batteries and ending with small portable stoves on gas. People have some sort of a mental algorithm of what to do to ensure they are ready to face the winter and this mental algorithm is individual for every single person. So you can literally see that people are ready no matter what government offers them, like they're trying to be prepared. So if the government for some reason is not able to offer them as much of assistance as possible, they can face the winter themselves. And are people thinking about leaving or indeed already crossing borders and might this be part of a Russian plan to flood European centers with more refugees. It is definitely a Russian fund. However, judging by the situation in gear if I just saw fresh statistics on the population that is living in here right now. So before war, we have 3.7 millions of people here in Kyiv right now. We have 3 million of people still standing in Kyiv and for 400,000 more of the internal internally displaced people. So I would say that this attempt to create a migration crisis of some sort of coming from Russian from Russians is a good attempt. However, it will not work. Because people, despite the winter, they still want to stay where they are. They still want to go back home. Yet if they consider spending some time in the winter, like somewhere in the European country, most probably they will return home because they're homesick. Now, in Russia, the parliament has passed the third and final reading of a law banning LGBT propaganda. Let's bring in doctor Jenny mayers now. Jenny, this is fairly vague. What does it cover? Well, it covers the most everything. I mean, it's a follow-up to a law that was passed back in 2013, which banned propaganda of non traditional sexual relations as it was called aimed at children. And so the idea here was that the family and traditional value should be preserved in children should be protected. But now the law has been extended, really, to ban any kind of mention of any kind of LGBT people or even education or fairly neutral information is going to be banned on the Internet in films and books, in advertising, basically just about anywhere. Why? Why is Russia doing this? Well, this is part of a longer term wider attempt by Putin and his regime to kind of position Russia as the defender of traditional social values and family values. Not only as a way of trying to submit the population in a certain direction, but also as an international appeal towards those parts of the world where this kind of a message resonates. And it's also a way of placing Russia in sharp contrast to the way that Putin and others in the leadership are presenting Ukraine and Europe and the west as being the home of. The sort of behavior of its degenerate and not in keeping with traditional family values. So it's part of a bigger set of messaging and positioning that Putin has been doing for Russia. So really in a way, they're using homosexuality to justify the attack on Ukraine. It is in part being done that way. So part of the logic here of the justification of the excuse is that in Ukraine, there's a sort of a dangerous way of behaving in a dangerous way of living and Russia needs to prevent that from investing and infecting the Russian people and needs to kind of push back on it and therefore to defend traditional values. And this is one way of doing it. And of course, this new law, in addition to banning any sort of LGBT positive or neutral mentions, also bans positive mentions of childless families. So it's really expanding this definition of what traditional values might be and making it very vague so that the authorities can implement it pretty much as they choose. Victoria, is there a large LGBT movement in Ukraine? Oh, yes, of course. Actually, we have a key of pride. Which is a very well known organization here in Ukraine that organizes pride. I've been to a number of them of those throughout years. And they are very visible, especially in Kyiv. They're very visible also on the battlefield. We have a lot of representatives of the LGBT community fighting on the front lines. With unicorn patches with their personal flags, together with Ukrainian ones. So they're visible. We also see that people care about their rights in terms of civil rights. Right to have some sort of a civic partnership in times of war because it is important if you die, you want your loved one to bury you to do whatever you want with your body and this is essential part of your own freedom of your own show is. So because of that, people actually rallied to some extent and organized a petition. For the president to consider civic partnerships, president considering it. So right now our cabinet of ministers is actually doing some work on making that issue more visible. Victoria, thank you. That's Victoria Vishnu ska, and we also heard from doctor Jenny mathers. Still to come on the program, the world's longest running play, the mousetrap, is set to open on Broadway. I've been coming here for as long as I can remember. Although the faces seem to change. The mystery remains. And everyone is a suspect. We'll

"We're very deeply engaged. Sleep i've also created a course For pain management in work continuing to find the areas that these technologies can can Can really help us understand enhance and then at the same time we have researchers the use me so there's literally thousands of researchers that he's moves in their practice And some of the recent publications so they're two different groups that used muse to identify stroke in the icu One group in israel and other group audi and bristol alberta and both groups were able to within a very short period of time. One of the groups is just three minutes per session. Identify patients is having stroke or not stroke and do it as effectively as the gold standards of a cat scan or an mri machine. So you know that's just one example of research that has nothing to do with us but has easing amuse technology that you know likely will someday get to commercialization through their own means and from a practical perspective. Just thinking through this as a doctor. If i have someone a rural setting who can't get to an empire cat scan and they. Can you have us headband. And be identifying. What's going on that you know even if it's just getting the reassurance that it's not a stroke that is so valuable. Yeah we're not there yet and it can't make any claims about you know that this can do that now but you know. Two different groups independently were able to identify verify those metrics and published in fantastic journals so good indications. Yeah yeah in the same in in cognitive function. they've now been multiple different groups that have been using news to identify a mild cognitive decline. So one research group Out of bakery hospital. Run by allison cooler. Another research group at the university of toria both using muse to identify mild cognitive impairment And then the researcher from university victoria oleg love critical. Sohn he just. Did this really cool paper. That looked at a thousand individuals And their cognitive fatigue using us so he was able to identify cognitive fatigue. Just with an individual alive lab in their own home self identification again. It's not you know not a medical claim. It's not yet a product but really really amazing research directions and i would imagine that the next step in that is okay can reverse it. You sure what how you then reverse the cognitive decline how you then reverse the fatigue. And how do you demonstrate that. That's what's happening and the cool thing about looking at your brainwaves is that it gives you a hint about what needs to be done in order to reverse and device itself is giving you some feedback. Yep so when you're doing a session you're getting real time feedback on your focused attention versus your mind wandering We have another company that builds on our platform called mind left and they've actually created entire near effec- sweet foreigner feedback clinicians using us and Their target there is on.
