Biden urges UK and EU to preserve Northern Irish peace amid Brexit row
"Good. Friday agreement of nineteen ninety-eight ended thirty years of conflicts between mostly catholic nationalists fighting for a united ireland and mostly protestant loyalists who want northern ireland to stay part of the united kingdom. But now the accord is in jeopardy. According to david campbell chairman of the loyalist community's council. He's calling for dialogue with the eu and island to change the northern irish protocol. That he believes has breached fundamental principles of the original deal. This follows an announcement from loyalist paramilitary groups that they were temporarily withdrawing support for the peace agreement due to concerns over the brexit deal but it has further repercussions beyond europe to has been mcevoy news a political reporter and monocle twenty four regular and has been covering. The story is here to tell us. Good morning to you. Vinian thanks for joining us at. This is clearly a big problem. Here in britain and for the eu. Why is it resonating across the atlantic. Good morning yet has huge resignation across the atlantic you have a massive irish diaspora in america. One in ten americans consider themselves to be from irish descent. You go to the half american presidents having lineage and the man in the white house now is probably the most closely itunes irish issues. That has been since john f. kennedy and so we've now got the brexit arrangement in place in old nada and there was a reason why the northern irish people voted most strongly than any nation in the united kingdom to remain in the eu. Because it is a self-described post conflict society. Those wounds were still hearing and brexit has opened them up and caused issues and as well as the united kingdom and the eu the us will say played a big role in achieving peace in northern ireland. And it is worried that the westminster government has been to a reckless in its handling of northern ireland and things could start to come upon say loyalists particularly angry. We have to remember over the course of brexit with theresa may. She didn't have a majority off to the two thousand seventeen election. so she's struck this alliance with dp which is the main loyalist party. She gave them all kinds of funding for that backing To get her brexit deal through it contains something cold the irish back stock which they became unhappy with that it would have prevented having border arrangements of they were the ones who encouraged conservative backbenchers to keep looking at so now the situation is that. Despite bar johnson's promises he is betrayed. Loyalist parties in northern ireland in that he has allowed the creation of an irish seaboard between nineteen noland and the rest of the united kingdom. And so it is that that has enraged loyalists because they think that it is a barrier between them and the rest of the u. k. That isolates them and that it leads to more synchronization with the republican violence because north non has stayed in single markets and not go on with the rest of the united kingdom. So of course. We know that the have been major power players struggling currently with the brexit rules and their supporters. What does this mean for northern. Ireland's devolved government. Yeah we have to remember. The nolansville government was actually suspended for three years until january loss. If it had been an independent country it would have been the longest in europe to not have to working governments But what it means now is that we've had them up running for a year and all kinds of problems are coming up. So you know the prime minister. Boris johnson traveled. Auden's elliott this This month he actually didn't meet with chimp Sane the other main partners in that power sharing agreement that has said waves. That says you know. The the westminster copy relied on his effect on governors of. What's going on there. It's only dealing with one of the parties but the loyalists themselves having problems in their ranks. Because of this seaboard you had a administer effectively northern ireland a playing a sort of unilaterally moves late on friday nights a few weeks ago where he sort of blocks the construction of the border checks at poets and the hiring of staff unilaterally and that really set things off because they're just trying to frustrate the creation of this border which brussels assigned up to the uk has signed up to in law and for the first time last week the biden white house made clear that it supports the northern ireland tricycle. And that everyone else. Apart from the loyalist consider this now a settled issue to move on

The Case Of The Dead Fortune Teller
"On april of nineteen. Seventy five the. Us army pulled out of the vietnam war as the capital city of saigon fell to the socialist people's army of vietnam in the days prior and the days and weeks following the fall of saigon the. Us military accused several operations aimed at evacuating refugees. Fleeing the communist government operation baby lift evacuated over three thousand three hundred children and the operation. Frequent wind rescued more than seven thousand vietnamese operation. New life and new arrivals saw these refugees processed in guam before being transported to a few army bases across the united states. One of which was camp pendleton in orange county california all in all orange county slowly assimilated thousands of vietnamese thirty years later in two thousand five that influx of vietnam refugees successfully transformed a stretch of strawberry fields and salvage yards in westminster calif into something more familiar. The area is now known as little saigon. Little saigon in westminster california is the largest vietnamese population outside of saigon. A a result of that There are often street signs in little saigon that are in vietnamese businesses. Use silage in vietnamese. It almost gives you the feeling of being in vietnam but you're in california as a result of that. There is a large presence of cultural traditions in little saigon. The cafes are popular karaoke bars. All kinds of ethnic foods and things like dad can easily found in little saigon. This a place where people from the vietnamese community can gather and talk and there's a sense of community there. This is sonia but yesterday my name is sonia. Chief deputy district attorney at santa barbara. Da's office a decade ago. I worked at the orange. County district attorney's office vietnamese in orange county brought with them to the united states. The kind of determination that only comes with the suffering and adversity that they had endured but also they brought their culture their food and their superstitions one major aspect of the vietnamese culture is what some in the us might consider a novelty pastime. Fortune telling to the vietnamese is serious business deeply rooted in their cultural history. Community members will consult fortune tellers for all sorts of reasons like making sure their businesses are properly situated for the flow of good energy to ward off evil spirits and haunted souls with rituals and spells to diagnose supernatural causes of illness establishing lucky dates for personal undertakings and to predict the future of wealth. Health and love. Then two thousand five. One of the most popular fortune tellers in little saigon was haas smith who went by the name. Jade i say was because in april of that year. She was found murdered in the home she shared with her daughter. Anita vo anita's ex-boyfriend young tran would visit regularly. Bringing coffee and snacks. In an attempt to rekindle their relationship him in anita had been dating for a period of time and very young love and as such can be kinda volatile times deterrent in the sense of It wasn't a serious romance at least it wasn't for anita but there was a real friendship there so i think that in his efforts to not only lure her back but general friendship and carrying it would not be unusual for him to share a meal. Bring over some coffee or just talk to her on a regular basis even if they were not quote unquote boyfriend and girlfriend. So happens is young. Tran goes and delivers coffee and biscuits and he leaves it in the front door area of the home he never enters

Scotland's leader vows to push for second independence vote
"Party has today set out how it plans to secure a new referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, or SMP, says it will try to hold a referendum if it went the majority in this year's elections to the Scottish parliament. The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has made clear his opposition to another vote. The last referendum was in 2014 when 55% voted no to independence. Paul Hutchins, political editor of Scotland's Daily Record newspaper, will the SNP leader Nicholas Sturgeon be able to secure that second referendum. If you look at what they are plan ears, it is to get a joint agreement with the U. K government on a referendum on scorching depends, which is what happened back in 2000 and 14. But this time around Tory government in London has decided that it will not grant what's known as the section 30 order, which is effectively a joint agreement, so that's put the S and P in a difficult position, so they come up with a plan B, which is to organize their own referendum at the Scottish parliament. The big issue. There is whether or not that is legal. And while there's no doubt that they will probably go down that road is going to end up in the courts, so the question of whether there will be a referendum is probably will be decided by judges. Would unionist parties in Scotland go along with the referendum that hadn't been sanctioned by Westminster? Well, that is the key issue here. I think there's a big distinction to be drawn between whether Scotch Parliament can legally organize a referendum on the legitimacy of such a process. So even if the Scottish Parliament did push ahead with our and judges To say that it was legal. I think that be question Marks Reese because first is this court's conservatives who are pro union. They've already said they would boy court such a referendum on so you could be left for the situation where you have a referendum, but one side is just not taking part. And then you end up with the result could be C 18 90% fever of independence on internationally just looks quite amateurish. So I think that ultimately what you need is a process that is agreed by both sides on as we speak to snow and agreement on that looks quite far off. In the last independence referendum you mentioned there was a pretty large margin 10% in favor of Scott, the remaining part of the United Kingdom has that shifted dramatically in the last six years. There's no doubt that in the last couple of years their husband a shift in favor of independence. I think that around the last 20 opinion polls on independence surely lead for independence. So I said quite dramatic turnaround. From 2014, and I think there's a few reasons for that. One is Brexit as you well know, People school rejected Brexit when there was a referendum on that subject. There's also no doubt that the conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, is hugely unpopular. In Scotland, and I think that is partly responsible for the shift in public opinion. There's also a perception that Nicolas Sturgeon has handled the pandemic better and Boris Johnson has. I think it's a combination of a wussy factors as resulted in the increase in independence with the last couple years. And yet, I suppose in the back of people's minds is is the worry that actually, if membership of the European Union was driving things, there's no guarantee is there a tool that Scotland could quickly rejoined the U. Well, Brexit is the degree imponderable off this to beat. On the one hand, there's no doubt that is driving increased support for independence, but it does re some issues for the pro independence state. After was a referendum there's MP would liken depends got to rejoin the U. So you have the issue of? Well, how long would that teak and then even if an independent school and did join the European Union? What would that mean for things like Borders on immigration and cite the United Kingdom of what would it mean in terms of trade between Scotland and the rest of the Yuki? So I think that you would see a very different referendum. If we lose to tea, please, with a different set of questions raised. That was poor Hussian of Scotland's Daily record newspaper.

But the you know as as as sarah said place is a factor in this. And i feel like my whole life. I have heard different. Politicians talk about ideas to redress that balance Particularly with regards north and south and the latest. Boris johnson's government talking about leveling up. What why have previous attempts failed tended to go nowhere nail. we've had roughly eighty years of this identification.

You know given the fact that germany has spent eighteen billion pines. Send some twenty eighteen on on. It's kind of liking parts of the country particularly following reunification. I don't think it's anywhere near enough.

Locally is or westminster and trying to get an application that fits whatever westminster looking for so it will stupid world sitting around waiting for westminster to make a decision again when waiting for westminster to throw us a ballpark.

"Concessions no mortgage insurance. I'm putting down twenty five percent and I did buy the interest rate down some to get down that five and a quarter surrounding the numbers here. I'm plugging into Joe Massey spreadsheet here so I've actually got the spreadsheet in my computer and I just took a few screen shots to put it here in the powerpoint slides so if you want to see the spreadsheet email me or click the show notes or the Lincoln has show notes and screen shots while speak put on the blog. Post there as well so I put down twenty five percent Which required about was at all in between the down payment? The acquisition cost and loan costs for about almost two hundred. Twenty five thousand dollars easy math so my replace my property sold in Nevada. I walked with one hundred and seventy five thousand dollars and I put an extra forty thousand dollars to make up for it so the vast majority of it came from I. Ten thirty one exchange and one of the key things to know about ten thirty one is that you need to use all the money. If you don't use it you'll get taxed on it so it's always better to use the money and then bring on additional money to close on the property so I gotta that five point two five percent interest over thirty year fixed and the rents and the rinse on here were really good. And he's also include rubs so some type of like residential utility bill back system and so the numbers about the give you those are the rents. Plus they have a one hundred dollars extra added on there for Utility reimbursements any Guatemalan. Extra fifty dollars a month for pet lease Or something like that. So a few more dollars for a pet lease as well so sixteen hundred sixteen fifty seventeen hundred sixteen fifty so for grant polar about sixty six hundred dollars a month so very very strong numbers there. As far as like rental income I put vacancy at five percent when I do. Multi Families Annual rent increase appreciation Three percent and I put in twenty five percents for my effective tax rate so going on down to the monthly operating expenses I saw that yes property management now. My PM actually charged me Just about seven percent but I put in ten percent to round up for other cost in just other fees they have turnover fees leasing fees. Things like that so extra three percents. I'm putting in there. Just help. Cover some cost. The monthly maintenance reserves. I put an eight percent now in reality acts. Expect this to be more along the lines of like three to five percent per year for the first number years just because it really is a fully rehab property so I think it actually should be actual lower number avenue after year four or five. Six seven. Eight It should be closer to like an eight percent and the average and that's for you know repairs and also putting away for reserves. But you know with no matter what property by I because we often buy Rehab Properties right now. My clients say we should expect to see a lower repairs number. But there's also a chance that we will see You know it's tenants. Things go wrong and it might go back up eight percent. He might have a bad year. And there's always stuff like for example and this property I mean on three months after I bought it I think it was the first noteworthy air had the snow company. Come out and their snow plow. Because there's a there's a four car parking on their snowplough somehow scooped up the water main or the water main lid that metal Liz that goes in the concrete because the previous owners did actually re. They put down new concrete on the road from looking at the photos and looking at myself. It looks like that the lip was not done correctly so that the metal plate was just slightly. So when the you know the metal snowplough scooped it up. It pulled away. Let turn into one of these silly fiascos where the city of Westminster came out. And you know. That lid was from the nineteen sixties. They'll make leads that size anymore so for about three months. There is just a whole the sidewalk while they're trying to figure out what to do. So we put a cone out there and I just hope that no one hurt themselves on it and luckily no one did but then after a couple of months of that they cannot and repaired it and responsible for patching the concrete around the To Patch you know. Twenty inches of concrete was a six hundred dollar job in soon after with concrete. That was a pain in the butt so I sure that story. Because there's always stuff that POPs with properties so that's still should fall below my five percent repairs maintenance for the air but may may go higher so I'd like to eight percent to do very conservative. Underwriting there is no. Hoa Added Real Estate. Taxes are three thousand five hundred ninety six dollars. My property insurance is about Fifteen hundred fifty so just under six hundred dollars. There are the water and sewer averages about so far about one twenty a month and so it's pretty low and you know part of the reason its lowest because there's a high efficiency Water plants in there and also have no lawn irrigation so You know probably actually. That number should be more like thirteen fourteen dollars for the air. Not The eleven hundred forty so wanting to be a few higher spreadsheet trash is about ninety dollars a month for trash and recycling. And there's a dumpster. That's I think picked up twice a month electric or I should say excel so all the unions have individual electrical meters five meters four for the properties and then one for the common areas for me the landlord by then. There's one water or water and sewer tap and one gas align so than I pay for the gas and the water heaters gas and the furnaces are gas so see a lot more expensive. Excel BILL IN THE WINTERTIME. When the water heaters and furnaces are running more of it looks like it should average out to about three thousand a year or so for the Communist cell bill for landscaping landscaping do that snow removal and there'll be some basic landscaping to do. I think we bat thousand bucks. A year is my estimate so going on onto the next tablet spreadsheet here for this rental analysis might total annual expenses are about twenty five thousand dollars that leaves me with a net operating income of just under fifty thousand dollars so they take my debt payment on their it comes out to be about forty two thousand dollars for the year so my annual cash flow before taxes about seventy five hundred dollars so that gives me a three point two percent cash on cash return and a five point eight percent cap rate so much more for. Capri person so I was like what the cap rates so having a you know a Rehab Multiunit. That's close to a high five cap rate. That's a really good deal in the current market so I was really happy with property color notes about here just kind of talk about numbers more. That's really interesting so I bought this in August of last year and I just recently finished a refinance on his property. I Andrew Interest Rates really dip their back in February or March. Can't quite remember when they dipped there awhile ago I refinance this property and I got down to a three point. Six two five percent interest rate. So I mean that's almost a point half drop so I had to bring some cash to closing order to pay for closing costs by the rate down a little bit so I think it was about eleven thousand dollars for closing to refinance. But here's the kicker that refinance is Gonna. Save me just over six hundred dollars. A month in principle interest payments. So that's about sending two hundred dollars a year so that's less than a two year payback period. And since I plan on his property for at least about seven and ten years It makes a lot of sense so with that right there. You can look at hates as me money. Or it increases my cash flow by about seven thousand dollars a year and that would Bring my Castro. Probably two fifteen to sixteen seventeen thousand dollars a year now kind of taking one more step back talking about my cash flow before this refinance. I ended about seventy four hundred dollars underwritten. I really expect to be closer to be a thousand dollars a month and this was before my refinance because I expect repairs may be much lower and also expect my actual property management fees be lower as well so if I actually lower those it should probably be closer by thousand dollars a month so I'm hoping for by can being the conservative long-term model it'll be maybe six hundred seven dollars a month or about seventy four hundred dollars year which I'm happy with. It always be rather be more considerate underwriting than be too liberal on there but now refinance. I mean that's going to be an extra seven eight thousand dollars. You save him so overall I really liked his property Very happy with is my ten thirty one exchange replacement so you guys have questions on this reach out to me if you WANNA see the spreadsheet reach out to me if you need help with understanding ten thirty one strange. Reach out to me. They're not you know they're not that hard to do. But there are a lot of moving parts and so one of those things we want to know everything before you start selling your replacement property because you're still eating parts downstream that if we get something backwards or we get pushed up against deadlines. That's where we can earn the difficulty. So thank you for listening Kennedy questions reach.

I think that the woman woman would just take on the childcare role and we wouldn't have questioned it which seems mad. I know and I almost hate myself. Not Having questioned questioned it back then but that's the way it wasn't as Kate says there were kind of ways of doing it and possibly it was like that in other workplaces as well but this is such a particular could workplace because it's we're so concentrated together and it's so competitive. I hadn't been lucky enough to have children but you know the the fact. Is that the demand so great and the hours a heavy often.

Between all women in Parliament when I was first elected I got to know women like a heavy Stewarton. The Nascar Christina at the The Guardian Laura Kuenssberg safety region scar and all of them was sorta starting really their careers. And I was starting outing mind but also there were. There are a a decent number of women political journalists who are starting their careers and working in their way up in the newspapers that same time in the same way in which we're trying to work our way up the political ladder and I don't think it's a big surprise. The you do form relationships with people like you and so you know I've got to know become friendly with some of the women. Journalists perhaps in a different from way compared to my relationship with some of the male journalists. I think it is really really important for covering the issues. That women are talking about in parliament to to have women in the political lobbying in the press gallery and I guess they're probably a lot of sheds stories empower wells in our careers as politicians. The career is that Women in the lobby face as well. But certainly we're here because this started a hundred years ago hundred years ago. There were no women in parliament and the the no women in the lobby. We've made huge progress by every generation finds that there are still inequalities still to at two rights and and ways in which we can work together to crater a more equal society more equal opportunities. And I'm certainly determined to do that. And of course Julia Langdon was in the lobby. She often covered prime minister Margaret Thatcher. Jillian never felt sisterhood. Bond between her and Thatcher but she does does believe that the prime minister related in some way to women reporters. I remember for example. We would be going run. The temple of Konak looks or and she was back on the plane and she was complaining about her feet nicer you wearing high heels in and she said well I have to wear high heels. It's all right for you.

How well the men did for two thousand years considered they tried to do it? In December the I marks one hundred years since the first woman took his seat in parliament.

Books as a part of the story has been left out of most of the history books on the first of December nineteen nineteen to women journalists were allowed into the press gallery for the first time I can only India matching the nerves and excitement of being the first women journalists in parliament. I wanted to learn more about them. But that wasn't easy in hindsight. It's obvious that it was a momentus occasion but it seems to historians and the Early Twentieth Century didn't agree so I went on a mission to find out more about these women. Along the way I spoke to some of the women I consider to be the trail blazers in Westminster politicians and journalists alike. There was almost an assumption that the men did it and we had what was left over. But we didn't question it at the time. It's not just about doing those women of favor letting them into the press gallery. They are a democratic imperative because without them we only see half the world. I'm Kate proctor. Political correspondent for the Guardian and in this week's politics weekly special. I look back at the last one hundred years of women and specifically women journalists working in Westminster.

Who gather here to attract tv cameras. This square is the heart of what was once a suburb of london. The medieval city of westminster like buda and pest later budapest. London is to cities that grew into one in roman and medieval times. The city was centered near saint paul's cathedral. That was the place where people lived but in the eleventh century king edward the confessor moved his court the political power here. He built a palace and a church or minster here. In the west creating the city of westminster the sandstone colored houses of parliament. Sit atop the remains of the original palace of westminster over time. The palace evolved into a meeting place for debating public policy a parliament to this day. The houses of parliament are known to brits as the palace of westminster the main entrance is located midway down the long building if parliament is in session. The entrance is lined with tourists and staked out by camera crews interviewing members of parliament for the evening news across the square. The two white towers of westminster abbey rise above the trees. Westminster abbey is the most historic church in the english speaking world where the nations kings and queens have been crowned and buried since ten sixty six within its stained glass splendor lia- thousand years of english. History three thousand tombs. The remains of twenty nine kings and queens and hundreds of memorials to poets politicians and warriors. It holds the coronation spot.

The man who saved britain from hitler is shown wearing his military overcoat and leaning on a cane according to local tour guides.

Now look ninety degrees to the right. The brad boulevard of whitehall here. It's called parliament. Street stretches to your right up to trafalgar square in eighteen sixty eight. The world's first traffic light was installed on the corner where whitehall now spills double decker buses into the square. Let's leave the square walk north up parliament street which soon changes its name to whitehall. Rick will explain things as you stroll along whitehall walking along whitehall today. Whitehall is choked with traffic but imagine the effect. This broad street must have had on out of towners a century ago in your horse drawn carriage. You'd klopp along a tree lined boulevard. You'd pass well-dressed lords and ladies dodging street urchins. Desert by the white marble walls of this man made canyon. Whitehall is the most important political street. In all of britain it's lined with the ministries of defense finance treasury and so on you may see len camera crews as important dignitaries come and go political demonstrators. Come here to wave. Signs and chant slogans sometimes about familiar issues and sometimes about the obscure struggles of former british. Colony's notice the security measures. Iron grates seal off the concrete ditches between the buildings and sidewalks for protection against explosives. The city has been on orange alert since long before september. Two thousand one but londoners refused to be terrorized continue toward the tall square concrete monument in the middle of the road. Called the senate taff as you approach the senate off on the right hand. Side of whitehall is a colorful pub. The red lion on the left side is king charles street which leads about a block to the churchill museum and cabinet war rooms. This was the underground bunker of twenty seven rooms.
