Sex Positivity Throughout the Lifespan

"Thank you so much for joining us today on you. Thank you. I'm excited I'm glad to be here you. So you are affectionately known as the southern sexologists. Yes. That's like my brand name and I love it. It took me a few years to develop in design on it actually based on some of the ideas around the southerner and when that looks like and I'm originally from Brooklyn but my family's from. North Carolina's. So it was also like is this part of my identity and upset I think yes live here long enough. I'm definitely into that and so I started by were actually from a prevention Lynn's in sexuality looked doing work around HIV SEI information education, and then literally I remember the year in two thousand, three half finished my masters and I started working on a project for persons living with HIV and AIDS. To, talk about intimacy and sensuality, and disclosing realizing you just because you have a diagnosis of conditions, HIV or aid does it mean to stop being a sexual being and so like all my worlds collide it because here I was challenging aspects of my prevention side with aspects around holistic approach to sexuality and so fast forward just adopted the name southern sexologist when committed to doing work that was more sex. Positive and embracing sexually Walker Likes Fan So that's a really interesting point that you bring up. Just the idea of even talking about six as a southerner right and you know I think that the discussion around sex and sexuality can be difficult for lots of different people but it definitely feels like there's something about being in the south that makes it even more ZANU. Can you talk a little about that? Absolutely. You know. So my family is originally from eastern North Carolina that's where our family roots I, and so we have been challenged both in my immediate family and then cousins around talking about sex sexuality growing up in a Christian household like literally walked to church when I moved to North Carolina. That's how we've been treated with across the street from my house and while I appreciate some of the values and the. Impact that my church in my religion had on my life. It was also some of the ways our challenge in my own worldview around sex sexuality and I didn't have words for a young age some things that I would hear feel right in Audie in just made me feel sad and I didn't know why until later and so in my family again, we had person's family members cousins who passed away from HIV. And AIDS in the eighties and nineties and no one will talk about it. It was just so taboo and it's Kinda like much. You put two and two together. You realize what was happening and then when you try to talk to somebody about it, they wouldn't want to talk to you about even as professional. So to this day, there's two people who passed away in my family that subset of my family. Will Not talk about the cause of death Yeah. So it it definitely does feel like some of those kind of religious backgrounds intertwined with these conversations that even makes it more difficult to discuss and I think religion is a core element of the south thing. There's a lot historical aspects of life wise that even true within also think about when I say southern Kinda like that idea of Prim proper nece in. What you should be talking like, what are the words that are coming out of your mouth in public? So one of the topics that are appropriate to be talking about whether it's in school or Church, or even in your home in front of other people who aren't your immediate family very good point and that kind of reminds me of something you said earlier just the idea of a more holistic approach. So sex education, and so can you talk a little bit about that right? So the way I look at it and there's a model entitled those circles sexuality it was made most famous by Dennis daily, but he wasn't the originator of this model and some people don't like it but I think it's a good way to start I like to use it when I'm teaching for myself is that you know we are. Sexual beings across different aspects in this model has five areas which include sensuality, intimacy, sexual, and reproductive health sexualization, and than sexual identity and I think as we go through our lives in through development would probably get the most information on sexual health and reproduction, and even that has its limitations you know you might learn about body parts, breath control, and sti prevention, etc. You know kind of confined there but oftentimes. We don't talk about how our sense bring us pleasure. You know like when you taste something really good and I love when people say something better than sex 'cause obviously nightly for them. What something tastes so good brings you so much pleasure or hearing something that can resume and make you feel good. So ultimately, we had to look at sex from those different areas including our sense is another area I don't think. We talk about is intimacy. I often ask my class like how do you think somebody might get catfish like I can't believe that someone would fall for that but we don't really talk about the desire that people have for intimacy in not just physical intimacy like just connection with your friends with your family. The reason why so many people are like glued even social media now because they are not able to. Physically be with folks, but they can connect socially in have intimate conversations even on social media and then sexualization we probably talk about that next after sexual reproductive health because we do want to protect each other especially children from predators, etc always about sexualization to from that negative side of sexual assault sexual abuse. But there are some good sides to like flirting and you know just using power dynamics in your intimate. Partner relationship so I love that Model I. Know there probably are other models out there but I think it helps us look at it from the time we're born until the time we die we're sexual beings in that the whole is of us. Okay. So I, think you cover for the circles. was there a fifth one? All all the fifth one is important to sexual identity because that's that's the one that. Says who am I? How do I show up? How do I wanna be seen or perceived, and how things we can't control is how do people see an perceiver like art expression sexual identity so not to go on so much I think about you asking me about southern route. So when I think about sexual identity so I'm old school and when I was in college, it was like boys to men era in. Baggy Pants I. Literally went into the air quotations, men's department and purchase ties on sales in but in downs and our baseball caps and I remember going home on one of our college breaks and one of my classmates friends was like, why do you always wear those ball cats you better not come home again after being in college we are in a ball cap and asks thinking why don't you like what I have? On was she was really addressing my gender identity imagine expression because for her I was presenting in a masculine way a young lady shouldn't just like that. So she actually came from me during that time and it stuck with me about if we believe in the binary or subscribe to you that it's Kinda like melnace in female nece and how you show up in the world and you get to choose that you get. You get to express yourself the way you want to express

Lori Loughlin to Plead Guilty in College Admissions Scandal

"Laurie Law Clinton and her husband Massimo. They finally admitted they are guilty. In the college admissions scandal they reached a plea deal which significantly reduces their sentence. I was shocked when I saw this headlines. Were you guys? Surprised at all honestly. I'm just so relieved that this has happened. And that we finally have some closure on this debacle because it is been going on for feels like four adver and I also. I was very surprised. I didn't think that they were going to have such low sentences but ultimately I just don't care. I'm just happy that it's done. They're going to serve their time. They're going to pay their fine and we can just move on from this. We'll see in. Moore's ZANU extensive experience with studying to law subjects in College. Back in two thousand six. It wasn't looking good for these guys. I think this plea is the best case scenario for them now. The varney plead guilty to one of the counts each so the whole entire bundle but I think it is what Morgan said. It's the best thing for everybody in the especially the kids I mean. Did we see those fight is once again to remember the rowing fight? Don't remind us of the photos. They are a crime from seeing those photos. What's crazy to me is that there have been people who have had similar if not less offensive offenses. And there's I remember. There is a mom who received a five year sentence for falsifying her son's address so he can get into a better school district and she got five years locked up for that and these two. They're going to be doing a couple of months and they're gonNA have maybe two hundred hours of community service and You know luckily for them. They're not doing the forty or sixty years whatever originally was supposed to be But yeah very interesting to see that they actually said we're guilty doesn't surprise me at old. We have a bit of a flawed system. I feel like in this instance with them. I do think that bit and everything has sort of affected things and by the way. I think that it's Laurie. Serving two months in Montana supposed to survive. I don't think either of them are going to serve their sentences to full-term there's no way there's there's a possibility that they could get house arrest because of the Kovin situation. There's a possibility they won't actually do the time in jail. I don't know but the question is will. Laurie repair her image. I feel like all she's got to do is go on dancing with the stars and everyone's just going to forget about all of this because that is celebrity image. Rehab Redemption story works really well when someone has done something bad and committed a crime and then they lock all of a sudden. It's going to be great. Pr TO IN. A COUPLE OF YEARS DOWN THE TRACK. Bring them back up again. Audit will that to happen. It can't happen like that. I completely disagree with that. This is all this business on in its image. It's always about how you can. People are forgiving and I think that Lori is dead than going to be forgiven by the public. I think people again are so over this or this to be a two month sentence after all of the HOOPLA and all of the research we've done over what Aaron said sixty fifty one hundred years that they were gonNA spend vibrators. She's GonNa do one episode of dancing with the stars like Aaron said and she's going to do one lifetime movie and then I'm going to see her shouldn't say hi and everyone's GonNa keep it big put on walk. That's how it works. Welcome to the world of white privilege. Hollywood

Australia's Extreme Heat

"By and large are pretty direct people so it figures walking into Mary Con Yards House west of Sydney. She would get right to the point. Good how are you hot cooking here? It's about thirty eight degrees Celsius outside one hundred Fahrenheit which is relatively cool compared to what it's been like this frontal at least it keeps some of the heat out some not much. Three fans are humming in Conrad's living room. The lights are off to save money on electricity in con- yards banks cleaned to her forehead like she just got out of the shower. Just vacuumed ZANU. Coming and this is what happens to me. Lives in community housing a rental unit for lower income. People that's located in Greater West Sydney a fast growing part of the country's largest city that a few months ago held another distinction the hottest place on Earth about one hundred and twenty degrees Fahrenheit or as Conard puts it. It was hot and when its stinking hot door. Just you know hot hot like it is on this day. Conard like many people in West. Sydney has a really hard time running. The air conditioner. Day is not an option. It's too expensive so is moving. It's a struggle. It's really a struggle. You WanNa do things but the heat just zaps it out of you. Heat waves as well as being a silent killer. It's a social killer. Lucinda coats is a scientist with risk. Frontiers a private research center that focuses on natural hazards like bushfires cyclones and flooding about twenty years ago. Coats had the grim task of cataloging. How many people? Each of those natural disasters had historically killed in Australia. And that's when we first thinking hang on a minute hate wives. They seem to have killed more people than all the other natural hazards combined. Yes all other hazards combined with elderly people in the poor. Most at risk code says it's too soon to know how many people may have died during this past. Summer's extreme heat but history might provide a somber clue in one thousand nine thirty nine in two thousand nine. Australia had devastating bushfires black Friday and black Saturday as they're now called both were preceded by heat waves and those heatwaves alone code says are each believed to have killed more than four hundred people the deadliest fire a hundred and seventy three is twice as many as succumb to the bushfires but the heat waves didn't get nearly the same attention. It was all fire photos of crying families. And cinch teddy bears and you can see why the the newsworthy bushfire is a terrifying thing but heatwaves. How can you take a picture of a heatwave? I've got a powerpoint presentation with a young chap just holding a water bottle and drinking out of the water bill. That's that's my picture of a heatwave. So it's really hard to communicate the immediate danger and there's a fast growing need to communicate that danger. A recent climate report by the Australian government found the country has warmed by more than one degree Celsius just in the last century. Extreme heat events are increasing in frequency as is the risk of extreme fire and extreme flooding. All of which has happened in Australia and just the last few months. Sebastian vouch is a research fellow at western Sydney University. Who's focusing on climate change in urban heat? Everything's extreme. It's exactly like how scientists for thirty years predict climate change to actually pan out and it's not twenty thirty forty or fifty anymore. It's twenty twenty. We have it. It's happening vouches. There are ways you can build for heat. For example houses could be painted. Certain color to reflect light. Green or living roofs could provide insulation. Houses could be built smaller with more room for treason greenspace. Australia is updating. Its National Construction Code in twenty twenty. Two and extreme heat is being considered in the changes but new codes would primarily be aimed at new buildings and the people most affected by heat tend to be folks like Mary concert living in older buildings that were designed long before bouts of extreme heat. Were much of a thought. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate the refi. Have my head and being able to pay pay for it and do that but I think sometimes it's poor design went with public housing. The nonprofit that LISA'S COGNAC. Thome knows this is an issue. Divisional Manager Heather Chaffee says she hears it from clients all the time for us as a housing provider. Tricky housing market. It's it's distressing to be honest. When often doesn't own the homes they rent chaffee says so? It makes it hard to make modifications instead. They focused on warning tenants. When extreme heat is coming but she knows that's not enough heat. She says is a global social justice issue. It's the poorest people that are going to suffer them iced so she says there needs to be a larger societal discussion about how we prepare for extreme heat because as a summer just showed.

Zimbabwe Continues Its Economic Downward Spiral

"Support for this podcast and the following message come from cohnresnick whose business of baseball and original MLB video series shares key insights on the business side of America's America's pastime for a game changing strategies to help your business visit cohnresnick dot com slash MLB. The family of Zimbabwe's former leader Robert Mugabe burried him this weekend he was in power there for almost forty years and after he died people hoped for a new start but life subway hasn't gotten any better last last week city officials cutoff tap water in the capital city. Harare Andrew Meldrum is Africa editor for the Associated Press Sixteen years ago. He was expelled from Zimbabwe Walkway recently. He went back to look around at the country that he'd covered for decades. Meldrum told me the Water Shutoff in Harari is the result of both drought end economic economic crisis. There's no water going through the pipes. People were lining up to pump water from wells to wash their clothes in brackish streams or ponds so were seeing a city and a country that is really suffering from huge problems from an economic downturn as as I say you know no electricity in the capital for as much as nineteen hours a day no water. This is is something that was just unthinkable people. When I was living there I would imagine having spent so many years in Zimbabwe. You have lots of friends there. What are the differences in their lives since you've been. La well those of my friends who are still in Zimbabwe. They have experienced a roller coaster. Since I was expelled they they have experienced hyperinflation of more than a billion percent inflation Yaha and also they experienced something surprises in political situation they saw Robert Mugabe fall from power and there was a tremendous amount of optimism and excitement to think that that things were going to get better and now two years later at the death of Robert Mugabe. They're saying will actually things aren't better at all and the government under Emerson Mnangagwa's has has not achieved economic growth or an improvement in things so they're they're disappointed so the the question is why not I mean I remember the optimism awesome. People saying the country will be more free. The country will develop economically. It's Mugabe essentially. Many people said that's been holding us back and then you're saying but in two years nothing's happened why not well. Robert Mugabe left but the same party ZANU. PF and the same military military are running the show and they are not making the kind of substantial fundamental changes in the way the country is run that will will improve things for the average. Bob weigh-in one thing that was interesting that I'd like to highlight was a doctor who was calling for a strike to get higher wages. He was abducted he was tortured and he has now been released because there was an outcry amongst the medical community and throughout Zimbabwean of course it's great that he has been released but it it was one of a series of abductions of government critics in in recent months so it shows that there is a level of political repression still in Zimbabwe. What do you think happens next in in symbolic way. Is there some political leader political party waiting in the wings that has the potential to turn things around I don't see that political leader waiting waiting in the wings and it might be further in the wings than I can see at this point you know things are going to come together so that the country returns to the kind of prosperity that I saw it but I think it's going to take quite some time Andrew Meldrum. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you Noel Andrew Meldrum the A._P.'s Africa editor joined us on Skype from Johannesburg.

South African President confirms longtime Zimbabwe leader Robert Mugabe died in Singapore

"The former leader of zimbabwe robert mugabe has passed away at the age of ninety five. Yeah that's right in many respects. It's not that much of a surprise because according to the reports that i've been reading he had been in hospital in singapore since april so clearly he was failing he he was in very weak health and i guess as well that <hes> even before you had the hand over of power to amazon and gangway. There were signs that he was losing his grip. That was very fraudulent bradshaw. Some of his speeches have been rambling and of peace so to speak but not that much of a surprise but i think that it's very it's very difficult when you want to know about him all talk about him because it is such a mixed legacy on the one hand hey was this man who was the the icon of the struggle for rhodesia's them was to gain its independence become zimbabwe. He had actually served time in jail. He spent about ten years in jail. He dove asleep. He's obviously suffered heaping tortured etc but he comes out of out of jail he <hes> he co found zanu p._f. Of becomes the leader of the group you then have these campaigns which quite militarized to actually achieve the goal of getting zimbabwe's independence. He becomes the first post independence of prime minister restoring the country. <hes> is generally seen in the beginning to have done all the right things because he worked for a halt on actually giving black people the black majority some some sort of economic have some sort of economic power also <hes> giving them healthcare doing all the right things and then something went very badly wrong it was it was as if he became came corrupted by his own success and that when the elections were held to select a new president <hes> they were effectively rigged rigged. Even though of course that was vehemently denied he did work at one stage of morgan chenggong who was one of the main opposition leaders that he was up against they had this very uneasy alliance alliance mr chandra of course passed away a few years ago and really he's he's basically he. He had to give up power because it was getting obscene and it seemed that the straw that really broke the camel's back. We'll see second wife grace mugabe because these the inference war was that he was trying to line her up as his successor even though she had no the political qualifications as qualification for the job was that she was married to him so it's a very mixed african legacy yes. They were the good things but they were also so the negatives. Let's not forget as well that turn this country was once dubbed the breadbasket of africa. It is now dependent on outside assistance. It had crazy rates of inflation so it was very difficult for ordinary people to live and when you look at the trickle down effect on the very human level there were stories about people who are having to cross over the border into south africa teachers for example working a sex workers because they couldn't get any money things were that tight so very very mixed legacy didn't have to be that waypoint clung onto power and corrupted him

Mac bonds says what you and so you You and and I. I we're honest, and maybe we're less, I think, what you just said, was, we're not so interested in the psychology of the people as we are in the technology and the trend and what's happening. I was in scientific American. The real reason fans hate the last season of game of thrones. Zanu to fifty really interesting. It's really interesting. And it does kind of help you understand. I think. Yeah. Is where to look when you're looking at what's going on? Berg. Doing a lot of research lately. So I've been reminded of things that I've kinda shy. You'll just the way I deal with things psychologically to shut him out. You know, it's like it never happened. And so, like, having to kind of confront this stuff, again, has been very traumatic for me, but he's into he's in windows denial. I feel like you, you both are much more technical than I am. But I used windows as a normal person. And to me, I just assumed all operating systems. We're just right in, like insufferable and horrible. And you just have to figure out how to use it. That was how I looked at it. True. By the way. Yeah, but, but technical, and you look at the underpins there is one true operating system, and that's gonna say, no, that's okay. OS ten is Unix Android is Unix. Lennox is Unix. It's the operating systems that embrace that style. I think that are, are, are going to survive, frankly, and Wendy was created literally to destroy Unix. Yeah. Literally. Before I became a reporter I was a Unix reporter, that was my whole job. I covered Unix that was my that was my path. And the reason they made me the Microsoft reporter was when Mt came out, they said, oh, Unix and NT, they're kind of the same thing, so you can now be the Microsoft reporter. Right. Same thing as far as well. But as far as the P C goes, N T, did beat Unix. I mean it didn't beat it out of existence, which is maybe it's greatest failure because that's what Microsoft did previously to all of its competitors. And by the time the server world started happening that didn't they didn't defeat Unix area there. And of course, with the phone, I guess you could make that argument that, you know. See, that's that's Lennox. And I don't think at one because of its it's hard to test it did. And I can make a case for it. But I know it's not worth the energy, but what you could say is at least Lennox was strong enough to survive embrace, and devour engulf and destroy or whatever that Microsoft strategies to be. Actually. Actually Lennox is an interesting example, because Lennox is an example of something like in the nineties when it came went when started coming up of very Microsoft like thing. But open.

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate.

"Campaigning one month before an election. Also, we look at what's the heart of barbed Italian comments about French foreign policy. Sounds drive and it's getting quite tasty. And you can keep up with the program by following BBC World Service on Facebook and Twitter state. You. Beswick age. Talk about symbolic way, where the government appointed human rights group in the countries accusing soldiers of using systematic torture crackdown on protests. Meanwhile, the opposition has demanded an end to what it said was the terror inflicted by the security forces during a week of violence sparked by a rise in fuel prices. They are responding to an offer of talks by president Emmerson Managua who urged all sides to engage in a national dialogue and said misconduct by the security forces would be investigated. We're joined now by Alex say, he's a Zimbabwe expert from the university of Kent in southern England. And he is the former advisor to Morgan Chiang Rai who was the prime minister of symbolic way from two thousand nine to two thousand and thirteen at welcome to the pro program, Alex. Thank you for having me. We should say that mortgage anger. I was the the leader of the opposition party from two thousand and two thousand thirteen your reaction to what the government appointed body. The human rights group is accusing the country of the soldiers using these the systematic torture there. The government is is has come out in defense of that. What's your reaction? What I think these bubble human rights commission has to be commended performing its constitutional mandate, which is to protect have got human rights, and the fact that they've actually come out and safeties confirms what many people have been saying victims observers human rights groups, indicating that the soldiers the military have been physically beaten up pressuring and killing people. And I think it's important to get this from a constitutional body and the government itself, I think knowledge and do the necessary, which is apologize and to deal with the culprits. Right. And now what we say. You're looking at the soldiers, and the heavy-handedness there you saw president mnangagwa's condemning that when he landed in Zimbabwe on Monday, he didn't go to Davos, he went back to the country to try and resolve situation. It indicates, oh, it's pointing to a faction. That's seems to be occurring within Zanu PF is the party splitting perhaps we saw that over the past few years. Is that split intensifying? Well, I mean, the first thing I should say the president should never the way he did after raising fuel prices knowing very well that was going to be as unrest intensive Zanu PF itself. We've been hearing this for quite a while. Now that there might be some conflicts within the party, especially the top leadership much relating to succession after twenty twenty three when Mr. mnangagwa's Fisk term supposed to end whether or not this is true. I think we'll know in the coming few weeks is unhappy of tends to come together whenever they fish. An existential threat, and we will not be surprised if they continue to make our pick up the differences and continued because all day interested in is maintaining power. But the immediate question is the question everybody's asking these who's actually in charge in Zimbabwe. Well, that's that's the golden question. Mr. Mnangagwa, disobedient face of a military government is we have saved from the beginning in November twenty seventeen. Unfortunately, the world did not listen that this was a military coup. And that's Imbaba was now on military rule. Mr. mnangagwa's this video of that. So the conflict between those who took power and the person who they installed is the leader. Perhaps we'll continue for some time. We've also had that the country seems and this is an ongoing criticism off Zanu PF that the country's hostage to the ruling elite. It's bitterly divided. It struggling do. You think the people of Zimbabwe will be able to vote again away from Zanu PF because they all such an allegiances, isn't it still to the ruling party? Well, there are some allegiances political party that has been far for so long. It maintains a strong patronage system, which means that there are people benefiting from it. But also, we must never forget that Zanu PF is very adept at using intimidation in particular in the rural areas, but I have to say that a lot of people, especially the young people have lost faith in the elections. And that's very dangerous because when people lose faith in the constitutional process through which they must choose and change leaders, then it becomes very difficult to have much in the future. A lot of young people are saying these Imbaba dream is the dream leaves Zimbabwe, which is. Okay. Alex guys, say eight Zimbabwe expert from the university of Kenton Salvin England.

Qatar to aid Turkey, lira rallies, U.S. rejects lifting tariffs

"I asked the BBC's, Celine Garrett in Istanbul about the mood across Turkey and which goods are affected? Well, this morning Turkey, double tariffs on some US imports and including cars, alcohol, tobacco cosmetics, slice and called a decree was signed by presidents at type our Don. And for instance, the tariffs on passenger cars are was doubled to one hundred and twenty percent on alcoholic drinks to one hundred forty percent. Sent and on tobacco to sixty percent. The vice president took this on Twitter and he said, this step was taken under the principle of reciprocity in response to US administrations, deliberate attacks on Turkish economy that is a feeling shared across Turkey amongst the pro government people, government supporters that Turkish economy is targeted, and there should be a response and the government is acting in line with that. Having said that these terrorists will not actually have a very serious impact. The United States is the fourth largest source of imports. Turkey, it accounts, twelve billion dollars of imports. However, these particular tariffs will be targeting only a small small ratio of that, and this will rather be very symbolic. Of course, Turkish government is trying to put on a brave face. Your symbolic may be, but what do people in Turkey make of all this? Well, there is this. Atmosphere of a tense cautiousness in Turkey. Last Friday, the Turkish lira the local currency had seen a record, low lost twenty percent overnight. And we're talking about a currency that already had lost forty percent of its value since the beginning of the year. But early this week, the central Bank intervened and the lira gained some ground after dot and the Turkish government is saying that the steps taken by the central men central Bank show that they are on the right path. LeRoy is declining. It has actually rallied this morning as well after a Turkish at a Turkish court decided to release to Greek soldiers.

There will be talks held with Mirko mccrone and our dawn, for instance, today and tomorrow and Turkey wants to show that it has alternatives and the people in Turkey want to see that we cannot talk about a panic atmosphere in Turkey. But every now and then when someone passes by an exchange office, you see a worried face where is the dollar standing now, whereas the lira standing now.

Jose sixty one degrees in Oakland, eighty degrees in Sacramento and fifty nine degrees here in San Francisco Doc protests violence and accusations of election rigging stain the first Imbaba in election since Robert Mugabe's thirty seven year reign on Wednesday three. People were shot dead as police and military forces clashed with protestors protestors were responding to what they, see as a, rigged election after Mugabe's political party Zanu PF. Won a majority of the parliamentary elections Gabrielle Steinhaeuser is the Wall Street Journal's. Deputy bureau chief in. Africa and she's on the, ground in Harare Zimbabwe so we had the elections here on Monday and we. Have two main, contenders one. Is president mnangagwa's Samantha host Mugabe last November but to help us in military and his main rival is the opposition leader Nelson. Chamisa forty very smooth talking young men mnangagwa's already seventy five and has seen kind of on Mugabe's. Side for forty years and Chamisa Claims and allies claim. That they won the election whereas the, electoral commission had hasn't hasn't you semi presidential results but they have set that. That nuclear after ruling party has won two thirds of the seats in parliament. So that gives you an indication of what's going on and why people are angry so yesterday there were several hundred demonstrators are opposition supporters were marching through. Town in front of the electoral commission and that's when things got a bit rowdy initially I'm Jay, Wright police were, called in and did they watch reports of. People throwing stones and waving sticks and then suddenly they called in the military. With tanks and so. You had sort of automatic, weapon wielding soldiers chasing down seven straighter were maybe artistic or so but also. Lot of passer, bys were. Just shelling things on the streets of worship shopkeepers nearby were caught up in LA which was sort of change From the very peaceful election day that we have seen it also pledges of. No violence from both leaders ahead of like like and we've. Also seen the United Nations and Amnesty International in addition to other leaders calling for calm after these elections. You said that things today are relatively calm but are there concerns that this military. Crackdown could continue yes I think the concerns are there and it's not normal to have soldiers on the street, that's something bad people here saw last November. When, there was. This military intervention Betsy post Mugabe but then after a few weeks cultures were taken off the. Street does things are pretty normal so people are definitely. Worried concerned and at this point we also. Don't have a sign that the opposition will Kombi accepts the, election results they said that they believe that votes rigs and I believe that if. If there's about one be election it, will probably be more protests And, I think the government has shown that it's gonna crack. Down with a heavy hand and once the winner is announced. Or declared what is it exactly that the, people of Zimbabwe are looking for from this government I? Think, they want jobs as one of the things that I've heard from many many people you. Have unions saying that sign out of ten workers are unemployed there's a massive, cash crisis here, the dollar has seen dominant currency, in Zimbabwe since two thousand nine since they have that out. Of hyperinflation but people had actually. Get their dollars out Bank anymore they wanted international investment they want them to Konami that provides for people.

Within the metropolitan metropolitan constituencies instead that they started by announcing that from away in rod ROY areas. And this. Area is dominated by the ruling party Zanu PF and I think this is what. The demonstrations that took place this afternoon so people's concern seems to be that because it's. Taking so long they think. That there is some foul play going on. That the election results. Are being. Rigged somehow that's true and also they're. Saying that candidate that I presented your candidate that's advocate Nelson Chamisa they think that he won Resoundingly about this electoral commission is yet to announce presidential.

Election with accusations of voters. Being coerced pressure being exerted what our election observers in Zimbabwe saying they give I am What they found or discovered this electoral process in a way. They endorsed the election, is physical but they.

Continue tomorrow I the protests to, continue tomorrow but there's heavy presence of Anti-riot police officers and the military on the streets I take, to throw down this to check. On the conditions and situation on the streets the army the police did. Kissing out, difficult so. I'm not sure that those who are. Demonstrating we'll. Be able to gather in the city unless they got.

"The opposition was able to freely campaign. They went around the country. They hit major rallies around the country, but also I think people should accept that even when you believe that we've got your head so many rallies, you must also believe I accept the fact that the other party also his, it's on supporters. We have head people talking about the issue of role, the role of what. And people are condescending enough to actually say that the raw voter is ignorant. I don't believe that's the situation the situation is, and I also don't believe that it's also to do with intimidation. It's been much bitter the, they've been a row. People have been going to opposition parties. So there wasn't that much intimidation and Zanu PF started campaigning about three years ago. They've been in the ROY areas. They have been working this poll in cultural programs in all sorts of menace. And with Zanu PF it's the patchy is a way of life. It's woven into the social fabric, so they have registered of their supporters. They're in touch with their supporters with MDC. They're not of people support MDC, but they're not petty members. They've what for it, but they are not putting members, you saw, they. They don't have a tracking system like the machinery missionary that Zanu PF is managed to employ over the years. It's always overhauling its machinery in shorting that on the ground, it's working with the people in Detroit get divorced that it once in each knows it is those what's in the ROY areas. So it will constantly work in those ROY areas. And this is one thing that the opposition party if he wants to break the cycle of not making through, they should actually start working in the rural areas and not also, they should also have language that does not this, the people that they are expecting what's for they've been reports of people saying or no, they're being very ages. You know, when you start insulting people in saying that the oil older people are the ones who put us in this miss because they're watching for was an that's bad because it's not true. If you look at tarry most of the old people. Well, in Harare in the areas they are the people who started way back in two thousand with the MDC to get it to way it is today. And then the language about the, you know. Insulting women.

"This is the global news podcast from the BBC World Service. Hello. I'm all of a Conway, and we're recording this at thirteen hours GMT on Wednesday. The first of August, our main stories, the ruling Zanu PF has won a two-thirds majority in parliament in the election in Zimbabwe. But e you observers have criticized the conduct of the vote, a hero's, welcome in Kinshasa for the former Congolese militia leader. Jean Pierre Bemba after ten years in jail in the Hague and there will always stay there and he'll never ever get a judgment or the punished. Ever be Justice for the thousands of activists who disappeared in Syrian detention. Also in the podcast, this is a solemn reminder. That our work is not complete until all have been accounted for. The remains of American soldiers taken home more than sixty years after the Korean war and how a stranded Russian was rescued off a week on a mountain in Pakistan. Two days off the Zimbabwean election. The official results have been announced for the parliamentary poll giving the ruling Zanu PF a two-thirds majority, however, the outcome of the presidential race thought to be a close battle between Robert Mugabe success. Amazon mnangagwa's and MDC leader. Nelson Chamisa has still not been declared, even though those votes were counted. I, the opposition has said there's Imbaba we electoral commission is buying time to rig the poll while e you observers, say the delay raises questions about the credibility of the election. Nobody noisier is from the European parliament, clear and conclusive results must be announced within the electoral deadline and chewing transparency, and traceability of counting with strength and confidence in this step, does this critical and Imbaba electoral commission should be fully transparent instable. Nation and puplic -ation of results. MDC politician, Douglas Moore Zora says the odds were already stacked against the opposition because the ruling party has such a tight grip on rural areas for aid has been used in rural areas as a political weapon is an enticement for the voters. It is easier to intimidate what does in the rural areas because of the passing of the settlements people feel isolated every time. So intimidation is easier in rural areas, Douglas Mwonzora of the MDC correspondent. Andrew Harding is in Harare and shortly before we came into the studio, he told me about a scuffle that had taken place outside the building where the count was happening. The have been some MDC supporters moving around town pretty small group. But yes, it's a sign of the growing frustration here, which we're now picking up from diplomats from observers from the international teams monitoring this election as the us chief observer said, look at the counting stage. The polling individual polling stations. It was the presidential vote that was counted. I we know that. So how come the parliamentary results already being announced, but the presidential vote has not yet been, of course, officially the thirties here have until Saturday to announce that result. But it's, let's say there's a trust deficit here and every hour that goes passed without news, people are starting to worry that behind the scenes, Zack who's integrity and biases. Being questioned by the international observers here concerns that they may be helping to cook the books, particularly if the presidential result as we're hearing could be very close possibly within a margin of error because of course they need fifty percent avoid a run off and I guess president Emmerson Mnangagwa would be to avoid that. Exactly. I think if this came to a runoff, then all bets are often. It's quite possible. The opposition could take this and. And so the concern and this is purely an allegation that we're hearing off the record by and large from observers and diplomats. Here is that there may be an attempt to massage the figures at the Zach self, the electoral commission in these hours. And because as I say, this history of fraudulent elections, no-one is resting easy.

"They've been crowing about a lot of new investments, but actually in terms of western interest, we actually haven't seen that. And we've seen strikes on public protests protests from public sector workers. And we've seen a lot of people warming to Jamaica because he. He's making boulder promises on the economy. Perhaps they won't be achievable, Bush the president and Zanu PF or not seen as credible on the economy. Chamisa has made himself to be this next later and is claiming he must win. But in a way Mugabe's legacy still hangs over this election, his supporters form their own party, and his image is still widely used as not right. The party that was formed by some of his supporters on some of those aligned to the generation forty faction within Zanu PF is it hasn't got much traction in this election and at least from what we can see formerly, at least Mugabe's influence, isn't there obviously, informally. It hangs over everything. I think more problematic for on a PF is the the internal tensions within the party. The haven't gone away since November. We had party primaries a little bit earlier this year that many of them have to be rerun apparently was because of irregularities. But in many instances, it was allies of the president and not getting positions. And also tensions between military factions on other factions on essentially, we have a president that's not quite as secure in his position as perhaps Mugabe was in his heyday on a lot of military figures, kind of see him as a one term president that perha-. Hops will eventually make way for vice President. Constantine chewing who, as we know, it was one of the the main coup leaders and helped bring none Gagua to power. We've touched on inflation and the economy, but certainly there is a lot else at stake here for Zimbabwe. Moving forward. What are international observers watching for? I mean, you've, you've talked you on investment being. I'm being very important. Yet. Zanu PF has staked a lot of credibility on this election. And as we touched on international observers had been invited for the first time since the has an to, but as as is the problem, both in Africa and elsewhere. A lot of rigging manipulation of the poll happens before polling day, and and we've, we've heard about some of the issues around the voters roll on about the integrity of the ballot paper international observers. They wanna credible poll and Santa PF needs the for western investment. And the problem is that we know that the MDC aligns are very close if not ahead in terms of the presidential vote of Zanu PF and we don't know whether it's on a PF on the military behind them would accept a defeat on us oppose. The big concern is that in a close tight race that these Imbaba electric commission in conjunction with Zanu PF and the military might. Use the problematic voters role to make sure they get the first round victory so that they don't have to go to a run-off poll grace if and just bring you in here. Lastly, for one final word, what are you expecting on Monday? What's been the mood in the country where you are. The mood in some quarters is you forty, but cautious because two thousand eight MDC almost got into power. So people are worried that things might actually go the same that same route again, but people have been mobilizing each other because they really want to go in vote and they went to vote for change, but we don't know what will happen because they is tomorrow sector Sundays between those two days Renon PF my look like it down and out, but it tends it surprises us because they have the power to actually mobilize people in in the rural areas. If bra areas people have overcome their fear Ben chemmy some, it's actually really. But when they going to be allowed to take over is another thing. But I also think that Zanu PF is going into this election because they are convinced they're going to win because I don't think these guys hit the Coosa that they would lose power.
