"We can do all of these things and then you make a good point like but then let's challenge it. You're not trying to get into an argument. You're not trying to berate someone you're not trying to say that, you know more than them. You're simply raising a question and you're challenging the questions. I want to talk about that for a minute. Why are foreign Nationals attending American universities by the thousands maybe schooling in America isn't so bad talk about them. All that. Well, I mean, I'll give you some context don't know if you saw the New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister. He basically responded to an American journalist about covid-19 sake he said sit down Sunshine a looks like you obviously had an American education and I mean, I am a condor I need to spread my wings. I travel the world. I lived in London and Paris. I've lived in Uruguay, right? I've been all over the travel frequently before the pandemic. I was gone once a month two weeks every month. I was somewhere overseas and listen. I actually got my master's degrees degrees that got multiple in the UK and France. So I went overseas from my Master's programs, but I did stay home in the US domestically for my undergraduate but the context was he was belittling American education on International TV, and he was being very patronizing and that upset me because you know, you have so many International students flocking in droves the US. To go to American Education American universities and get that American Education. I do know that K through twelve has its issues and it's underfunded but fully admit that and I I am advocating changing the humanly at least here in my local area in Salt Lake City. So I understand that K through twelve We are failing our students in many regards but don't come out and say that you and Bash American Education when your students are actually coming here for University you bring up this really cool dynamic or this discussion around politics and in the upcoming election, we have to understand the moral Ecology of those who were talking to were too quick to judge or too quick to assume and I don't know where you're coming from. I don't know who you voted for or who you're going to vote for. You shouldn't matter if it's the opposite where the same as me because I need to look at where you're coming from and your moral psychology and understand why you did that civility in debates civility in American politics is dead..
Interview With Robin McBride and Andra McBride John
"Okay so I warned you last time this story is epic right and I am assuming you're here because you've already heard part one of this two part story how two half sisters who didn't know the other existed until both were grown up went onto launch one of the biggest black owned wine companies in the world. But if you haven't heard part one, please stop listening right now and go back one episode and your podcast queue to hear it. As for the rest of you, you've now had a few days to dry your eyes and recover from the first half of the story. Which means we are at the business building part of what would eventually become the McBride Sisters Collection. Now, the thing about Andrea and Robin mcbryde is that despite both growing up in winemaking regions Robin in Monterey California, Andrea in new. Zealand neither sister had any real connection to the industry and neither had any real money to put towards a business. They were also young women of color trying to break into an industry that's often been dominated by older mainly white men. But now this matter they didn't care. They knew that they both shared a love of wine and that they both had a deep and powerful desire to work together. and. There was one other thing. They were motivated by mission they wanted to build a company that would make wine more accessible to disrupt and demystify the sometimes intimidating parts of wine culture. Grape varietals had a tasted regional nuances. Ratings even had a read labels. And when they I dreamed up the idea of starting wine company Robin, the older sister had been working at a corporate job and was married with three children and Andrea, was a college student at USC. I mean. Neither of you had a whole lot of start up cash if any did you Robyn did you I mean you had been working but you also family did you have any savings I mean not match you know it was kind of a nearly paycheck to paycheck. Already got married. We had recently purchased a home, but you know we have brand new twin babies and an older girl. So there wasn't a whole lot of cash available and under assuming given that you're on scholarship at USC in a college student, you probably were broke right I. Mean I got my scholarship checks in on. Where you could get a job and make money you know that was that was what I did. So the the the original idea was it sounds like what you guys settled on was let's just import wine and and Kinda put a label on it was that the initial idea. So we had this grand vision we felt like what was really critically important was that. Incredibly passionate about wine yes. Students of wine but we need to learn the business of wine and you know we could get this license in California, a federal import license that was like fifteen hundred dollars. It was like our total life savings and we could import other people's winds and we started by reaching out to two families in New Zealand, and then we could we could learn the business and we went to them and basically said, you know don't put all your eggs and basket. We think California could be a great market to grow your brands and your winds and we negotiated really long payment term so he could bring in the wine. Sell it. Click the cash, pay the light bill and then pay them back and then. As a part of the process was every harvest. We come back and you guys teach us how to make wine. And you Andrea ahead of some connections in new. Zealand 'cause you're from there and your family, your family farmers. Yeah. So when you first approach these wineries in New Zealand and they agreed to send you wine. How did that work like how many? How many bottles of wine did you initially by and then where did you go to sell them? So yeah so it was crazy. It was at the time at felt like it was an insanely huge amount of wine. In it was a palette which is. Fifty Four I. Like the the minimum of what you can put on a boat. But for us, that was just an insane an internet case of wine. There's twelve bottles. So right it just felt like a huge defeat to be able to get these licenses because you know the the sale of alcohol states is highly regulated. And it's very strict and so just the process of obtaining a license to import seemed and felt like such a huge rigorous process and then and then to convince people. You know to entrust in US and give US product and then to get on a boat and then and then bring it into the port of Long Beach at the time, and then put it into a federally bonded warehouse because you can't just like bring that to your house has to go into

And Tom had to take another brief look at some of the other stories making news in science this week with the science report scientists have found that global warming is now increasing temperatures, even at the very bottom of the patient's a new study reported in the journal geophysical research letters shows a significant warming trend of around zero point zero two two zero point zero four degrees Celsius over the decade between 2009 and 2019. The findings are based on hourly temperature recordings from Moorings and get it for dips in the Atlantic Oceans Argentine base and off the coast of Uruguay The Depths representing arrange around the average ocean depth of 3682 meters or 12,000 eighty feet with the shallowest at 1360 meters or 4460 feet and the deepest thoughts 4757 meters or fifteen thousand six hundred feet. The authors say the increase is consistent with warming Trends in the shallow ocean associated with anthropogenic climate change. And he study has found that healthy life expectancy in Australia and New Zealand. That's the number of years a person can expect to live in good health has increased steadily over the past three decades to 70 years in Australia found 69.4 Years in New Zealand, but the research reported in the Lancet medical journal shows that healthy life expectancy hasn't risen as much as overall life expectancy, which is now eighty to 2.9 years in Australia and 81.8 in New Zealand indicating that people are living for more years in poor health, the findings come from the global burden of disease study a large ceiling to National study involving researchers for more than a hundred and fifty countries. The first of Australia's new loyal wingman unmanned aircraft prototypes will fly before the end of the year off and you locally designed developed a built drones to being developed with help from Boeing's fantomworks. I designed to use a range of different missions specific exchangeable nurse cone pods, they'll provide wage Additional defense intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities acting as scouts or for challenging enemy fire if attacked the new uavs have a range of more than three thousand seven hundred kilometres and will act as a force multiplier supporting mad aircraft such as fighter aircraft including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the f a 18 F super hornets and a $18,000. They'll also provide a supporting role for Frontline support aircraft such as Casey 38 aerial refuelers and E7 a wedge tail a whack early warning and control aircraft month free prototypes were initially built a Boeing's automated production line in Brisbane as proof of concept for full-scale production queensland's already home to Boeing's largest work force outside the United States off. The new uavs will ultimately join the adf's growing inventory of drones which will include the new Global Hawk based mq-4c Triton's which are designed to work with PA beside Maritime surveillance job. Craft and the MQ-9 Reaper or Predator B attack and reconnaissance drones. A new study has found that cows like a good old face to face chat with people. The research published in the front is of psychology found cars are actually far more relaxed when spray directly by a live Human rather than when listening to a recorded Voice through a loudspeaker scientists from the University of Veterinary Medicine, Indiana found that cattle like being patted in combination with generous talking the team worked with a herd of 28 cattle comparing the benefits of either patting the animals while playing a recording of The experimenters Voice or while speaking to the animal directly as they patted them after monitoring the animals responses during the experiments side has found that live talking was by far the best mood enhancer for the new bovine friends. They found heart rate variability was high when cattle was spoken to directly indicating they were enjoying themselves. And after the treatment heart rates were lower than after simply listening to a recorded voice that shows the animals were clearly more jobs. Last following the live chat and how do tinted cows behave well cows and relaxed. There is a mood will often stretch out their necks and lower their ears showing that they oddly contented. The unrestricted power of social media has taken over the US presidential elections with Twitter and Facebook being accused of blatant political bias after censoring a series of New York Post expose choice of the emails on the computer and external hard drive owned by Democratic presidential candidate. Joe Biden's son Hunter the social media Giants are locking the accounts of anyone covering or linking to the storage initially. They Justified this claiming the link was unsafe and could damage computers, but that was quickly exposed as a lie. So they later changed their story instead claimed that article was being censored because it was unsupported hearsay and was obtained illegally through hacking incriminating emails were found on an external hard drive in the laptop witch hunter Biden had dropped off at a Dell computer shop, but never return to pick up despite signing paperwork agreeing to Forfeit the computer and hard drive if he didn't pick them up within 90 days of being told they were repaired the computer store, Georgia. Eventually handed the devices over to the FBI after first taking a copy of their content the FBI the Department of Justice and the National Intelligence director. John Radcliffe have all confirmed in the laptop and external hard drive are genuine and not part of any disinformation campaign. That means that neither unsupported hearsay nor were they obtained illegally by hacking the SARS is triggered widespread outrage across the United States over blatant political censorship by Twitter and Facebook, which won't apply the same standards to anti-trump this information or illegally obtained or hacked material about the president was still it's now been revealed that senior officials behind the censorship decision at both Twitter and Facebook have been contracted to work with the Biden transitioning team further underlined the politically biased nature of their actions.

COVID-19 in Victoria, Australia
"Gratified Friday that's right. Twenty third of Tober pardon the PUN number really pushing towards the grand finale Victoria in terms of stamping out the lost. Stubborn pots of coronavirus is still spreading down there. Yes, and there's clearly still virus around in the northeast corridor. Expected of totally disappeared from there and the pop up clinic, and that's that's the way it's going to go forward US way it's going New South Wales in Swiss going to go forward in Victoria and it's a good thing that they're onto its and jumping onto things quickly. So what we're looking forward to on Sunday from Andrews hopefully is certainly moving forward the restriction relaxations he talked about November I this weekend, but I suspect you might see but more than that in terms of. Restaurants spars that sort of thing where you just might see a speeding up or much more much better defined pathway to those opening up in the near future because Victoria is in pretty good shape we did he gets day battle outbreak in a housing block area in Melbourne is this just like we don't need a look down to get on top of those riot if the public health machine is working better now than it was before the and also if you've got the community onside and they're willing to cooperate because the realized the implications of very much larger knock time. So it's the fuel for the fires. When people are living in densely populated circumstances so it could spread incredibly quickly. So going to get on top to get on top of it quickly, but the capacity to do so is much better and there's less distraction around in Victoria. There's a lot of distraction around when you those terrible outbreaks in addition to the other outbreaks in abattoirs and elsewhere in Victoria there's. A lot going on towards the last time there outbreaks in those densely populated towerblocks these days the capacity is there to focus more and have fewer distractions around because there's so much less virus circulating the virus is circulating you know where it's come from right and so I sort of moving towards our kind of steady state of figuring out our relationship with this virus here. And hopefully, looking at opening up our internal borders at some stage in the near future. WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BORDERS? There's still lots of Australians overseas. There's. All. Students. WanNa come here. Tourism operators here are really struggling and I'm sure there's some. Really want to go overseas as well. WH- should've reopening paddle clack for Ustralia more broadly. Well, it's a very complicated landscape. You Go to feel for these thirty odd thousand students who went back many of them are quite unwell. Don't be exposed to covid nineteen in the places where they're at and they desperately want to get home to their families and they feel cut off. The problem is that we tend to have a one-size-fits-all to our overseas entries and it should be possible to open up a more strategic way if the politics would allow it and I'm not blaming the politicians here is a difficult situation and you've got to do something about stranded. Australians. Overseas. But a lot of them are in countries which have a high prevalence of SARS covy to like the UK European, the US and places like that. Tends to be where strain school some of them are in Asia and lower prevalence countries. So when you're sending a Qantas plane over to London to pick up people, you're bringing back in the plane presumably, they could take three or four hundred people bringing back hundred and seventy five because the crews got to be protected and the people on board to be protected bear in mind that all of the tens of thousands of who've already. Return the only been three or four hundred infections in. Australia. Yes. We hear about the movie dates true but it's low numbers trouble with that is as we've seen Victoria, you only need one episode of escape from Whole Hotel, it's not the family escaped by the virus did circumstances and you've got a real problem on your hands. So the risk is high, but the risk is particularly high when you're bringing back people from high prevalence countries. You've got a lot of international students in China. You'd have to exclude those in India because that's a high prevalence country but China is a low prevalence country. The should be a way of bringing back international students quite soon from China with judicious testing intensive testing, maybe limited quarantine with intensive testing, and there are ways of doing that but perhaps turning over halls of residence colleges to their limited quarantine that you might. Introduce Singapore certainly New Zealand. Pacific. Islands that you could open up these places quite quickly, and of course, if a stranger stranded there, those would be your first priority. You could probably stand up on this plane over and fill it up particularly wear masks and bring it back with a far more than one hundred, seventy, five on board, and almost a full complement of passengers. Because the risk is so low, so should be possible to a risk adjusted system where for safe areas, you have one way of managing it and from high-risk is another and this probably no alternative if you're living in the UK or Europe and want to get back to coming back on a on a very low load plane. So this is different to travel bubble. Is that it's a bit more like you still have to quarantine, but it's just not does we don't have to have as high stringency because the risk is lower it needs a lot of thought it's not straightforward and the highest priority has to be stranded strings overseas. It's just intolerable that we don't solve that problem and it's a bipartisan shoes not party political but equally. Doing. This, which minimizes the risk from already low-risk countries. The should be a way to manage risk more carefully an a nuanced way depending on where people are coming from. So it's not an open bubble, but it is a lower intensity of corn team. So let's take some questions from audience and what better way to rip through a few to do him as a quickfire Friday round you ready ready to go now. Jeffries asking you mentioned the other day that masks need to be washed at sixty degrees Celsius to make sure the virus free but domestic hot water services limited to fifty degrees. So I wanted to be hand washing his cloth masks in water hated in the kettle or what I think that random mackel worked find that sixty degrees was what did the work but you'll find that detergent in warm water should do it the same way it's just that extended washing cycle I think. So fifty degrees, sixty degrees who knows whether it makes any difference the. Point that Ryan McIntosh was making here is a quick rinse in the hand basin. There's not enough specimens a farmer and wants to know why if humans contracted card from animals? Why are the mammals supposedly don't get the virus and has anyone bothered to test shaped cattle pigs and so on record low testing of animals corona there's a lot of coronavirus infection in animals. Pigs get a similar co diseased covid nineteen, and in fact, there is a pig vaccine as far as I'm aware to a respiratory syndrome similar to covid nineteen, but it's not SARS coffee to. are lower than will species have been tested and not find to carry this dogs can be infected but don't seem to retain the virus very well whereas cat. stew. Agricultural, animals don't seem to be a big problem to corona virus is prevalent in lots of different species. This person's flying to dial in from CD next week's visit family added about it. What precautions should they take for the flight? Well, I think for any flight my view is that you should wear a mask threat flight and just be careful about hygiene and Qatar saves on Colonel Cast a few days ago when you flush the toilet. Religious so you don't have an erase allies. And I think this question is asking about sewage testing how can test for the virus with all those millions of latest of water and other chemicals and just take a small test tube and still be able to identify the virus Yup it's mind boggling but they're able to genetically to actually look for the fragments of the virus I think that this is done with antibodies that pickup the virus, and then lie top when they've picked up the. Joys a big fan of Corona cast and her son is a paramedic in London and has had a very mild case of covid nineteen. But she's heard recently that everyone who gets five nineteen has long lasting effects in the front of their brain. Is this true please cleared up her because she's worried you can stop worrying Joe it's far from through a percentage of people do get long-term. Effects. And it's really not known yet what the percentage is, but it's not the of people and one more question Norman Magin one infectious person walks into a room with ten others spends a considerable amount of time seven, get the virus and three. Why don't those three becoming victim? Is it because I got better immune systems probably just the play of chance, but it could be that you've got some genetic. To the virus always somebody in society with a new virus, who's got genetic resistance to that virus by the play of chance, these are mysteries to which we don't know could be that they just didn't inhale quite as many viral particles as others who knows it is a difficult question hasn't indeed uses it. Just another one of the many mysteries that still surround covid nineteen
NZ election: why voters chose 'health over wealth'
"Into mania in. New Zealand. Tonight. New Zealand has shown the Labor Party, its greatest support and at least fifty years. End For that. I only had two simple words. Thank you. Well that was prime, minister? I done this she celebrating her emphatic election victory last weekend. Now the significance of the Labor Party landslide. It's not just that it's seen as a reward for her decisive response to the COVID crisis. It means New Zealand now has its first single-party government in decades. So what does the mandate main for new? Zealand's economic landscape as it faces its worst recession in nearly a century. We'll deliver a progressive transformation across the ditch. What happens if New Zealand does not sort ad its economic challenges quickly. trans-tasman cousins could I become fouled state? All of the heart, which is executive director of the new. Zealand initiative and Josie. PAGARINI is the executive director of the Council for International Development both a based in Wellington all of Josie welcome to. Radio National. Hello Tom. JC How do you account for Cinderella Dunes emphatic victory. Well, I mean you've got to say the popularity is genuine people lover. She's like a superstar she goes into to shopping malls and gets mobbed but I think you'd say you'd have to say to that that election campaign was incredibly disciplined Labor wanted a covid election. They wanted election that was about who stopped US getting sick not who's going to get us back to work and they succeeded in getting that they also wanted election that was focused not on labor, not particularly on policy, but almost entirely on just cinder. So if you the completely unscientific focus. Group in the Texas, you'd ask a taxi driver who you voting for, and let's say I'm voting for just under the all of a juicy. He reflects the Conventional Wisdom Abacha in Dorado and that her aggressive handling off covered and not to mention her response to the mass shooting of Muslims in in Christchurch earlier last year the gun control measures she put in place all that explains Justin, Dryden's remarkable political popularity. She's also received widespread global price for being a stateswoman who's kept New Zealand you nodded even in the face of multiple crises, your not fanned. Why? Well. First of all, I would agree with our choice just as remarkably popular and. This scenes from her election campaign were quite telling wherever she turned up. They were hundreds of people around her celebrating her. My experience with taxi drivers though is a bit different, maybe different taxi companies are us. Last The last few times I had known taxi drivers They complained that their businesses stoned at the city's undying out that we are not recovering properly from the crisis. That business is simply not what it used to be an typically detect Texas. Of course when I'm flying from Wellington to Auckland, and have to get to the CD and you can see the traffic in the city, the city looks kind of dead. We've got a massive challenge ahead on the economy in these eland, and that's why I haven't really seen much from the government in general plans of how to revive the economy and how to get us out of they have effectively beaten the virus now twice. But they haven't actually given us any clear indication how they're going to lift us out of this because the protections for public debts for unemployment. From monetary policy, they actually scare me when you look at them many New Zealand business figures share all of skepticism is fair Point Jersey. Yes, it is because the election really did focus on cousin who it was absolutely about who stopped US getting sick and so it was actually really hard to get any coherent debate about what is the plan B if we don't get a vaccine next year, what is the retail kind? So it was all very vague that staff and. You're right. All of you got different taxi companies to me to probably but another thing I heard in Texas a lot was all well if it's between wealth and health, I'm GonNa pick health and just send a picked health. Well, of course, you know we know that that's a false dichotomy it's not health or wealth. If you country is unable to trade and you borders closed long-term, then you're not going to raise the revenue to be able to have decent hospitals. You're not going to get your school buildings. Renovated and so on, and you're not going to be getting elective surgery and people are actually going to get unhealthy. So but it was no one wanted to hear that town that was the thing. No one wanted to hear a debate about next year they just wanted to know that. Anti Cinde was gonNA look after and that was it. Yes we'll enjoys does mentioned the vaccine just interested in like most western leaders frankly, she's pretty policy on the likelihood of a vaccine in coming months but the question here is what if a readily available vaccine if it ever happens what if it's a long way off I mean for how long all of our the present measures sustainable I mean, how long can you zeal and cut itself off from the outside world? Well I think that is actually a political question not an economic run from an economic perspective I. Think it would be desirable to New Zealand to the words more quickly but can do the safely. We can still have proper border to ensure that when we opened up to the word again, we do this without importing the virus. But I think the government sticks to the precautionary principle at the moment, and that's a political decision because the public doesn't want the government do anything outspent opinion polls before election showing that more than seventy percent of New Zealanders what actually like to keep the borders Morris close and these are people who probably don't have any immediate travel plans or maybe don't have any family abroad. Heavily business to do abroad, and so for them life is quite pleasant as long as they also keep their jobson New Zealand's, and so they would rather electric continue the status quo until that vaccine arrive. So it is difficult for the government to go against this when the public is. So strongly in favor of just keeping the border shut as they are but at some stage will just have to a because some the economic consequences of this some prolonged isolation are going to be enormous Jesse is point. Absolutely, you could not get a discussion out during the election campaign about elimination versus suppression of the virus, and so it was it was almost impossible to talk about the plan. B. If the vaccine doesn't turn up which let's face it, it's unlikely tuneup and be available next year so. Realistically the from left or the right of the political spectrum. It was really hard to talk about how long do our border stay closed, and those of us myself included who were trying to say, you know look closing the borders as a six month policy not a two year policy. He can't possibly maintain a closed border and keep trade going even though we can still export milk powder and so on. But the ability for our businesses to connect with the world and so on for us to travel is just not feasible but whenever I said that I would get attacked on twitter and everywhere for being the head of a capitalist difficult. So you could not get a good debate going about this even though the w eight show for example was saying, Hey, you know strict lockdowns and we've had very strict lockdowns for lockdowns are not the best approach if you're doing a cost benefit analysis on either health or economic growth.

Loved Labours won: landslide in New Zealand
"This weekend New Zealand's Labour Party swept to a fairy-tale victory stunned. Prime Minister. Justin. The are dern beamed as a rapturous crowd applauded beginning her speech with a thankful molly reading. In. In tongue it Athena what? dern promised a big tent kind of administration. For every New Zealand has never been so important more than it has been now. We living in an increasingly polarized world a place where more and more people have lost the ability to see one. Another's point of view having come in for criticism during the campaign on failing to address housing shortages and poverty. She acknowledged there were difficulties ahead. Over the next three years. There is much to do. We will build back better from the covert crisis. Stronger. With an answer to the mini challenges New Zealand. Already faced. Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, forty, nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, which is called the national policy, which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, and that is the first time that any he's been. Able to govern on its own underneath. Zealand. System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, ondon rich city areas, and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, I to China, and then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. For, what was a very, very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, Bara brief surges pretty much. Succeeded I. Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, this weekend. So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. Labor a was looking the polls. The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. This election would have been a one term government, which is not very common in New Zealand central a being. Overseas particularly, for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. I, think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. So in a way that has served her well at home. Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. In key, we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. What about sort of kitchen table politics? This is. Just. On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. But. She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. They don't need.

So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? I mean new.

Interview with Robin McBride and Andra McBride John
"It's possible. You've never heard of mcbride sisters wine and that you've never had one of their chardonnays or brute rose as or one of their blended reds and it's even possible. You don't drink wine at all. But I'm here to tell you none of this matters for the purposes of today's episode because even if all of the above applies to you, this story will change some of the things you might think about business about fate and destiny about overcoming incredible obstacles and mostly. About. Love. This story is so epic that we decided it needed to episodes. So this week you'll hear part one of how Sisters Andrea and Robin mcbryde built the McBride Sisters Wind Company, and next week you'll hear part to. I'll start with the basics. McBride sisters. Wine is now one of the largest black owned wind businesses in the world. There are roughly. Thousand winemakers in the US and McBride sisters wine is among the top two percent in terms of how much wine they produce per year you can find their wines at most major stores like target and Walmart. And they're also higher end. So about twenty bucks a bottle but still designed to be accessible especially, the people who might be intimidated by wine culture and this is the precise problem. Andrea and Robin said out to solve how to open up the sometimes intimidating world of wine appreciation to people normally shut out young people, people of Color women but also make the wine good enough to attract wine. Snobs. Robin Andrea actually founded their business in two thousand five. And they faced just about every barrier imaginable. They were young women of color with no immediate access to a winery no money no connections. But what they shared was a passion, a deep abiding passion for wine. Something else they shared. A bond that was forged in a unification. The two sisters were born nine years apart both have different mothers but share the same father and for most of their early lives neither sister new, the other even existed. But remarkably both women grew up in wine producing regions Andrea the younger sister grew up near Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in New Zealand well, almost seven thousand miles away for older sister robin was living in. Monterey California with her mom. My mom and our shared father a divorce when I was a baby and so it was only she is. So she never remarried. She didn't have any more children She really honestly didn't even very much. I was aware of anyway she hid it from me. I'm not sure and she didn't have a large family at all. She was an only child also so it was really just her and I together in the world you know we were really. Had a really strong bond and really quite dependent on each other and when you were growing up, you didn't have much contact with your dad right none at all. You know a little context. My mom wasn't thrilled with our father when they divorced and you know it was no accidents that they weren't in communication. It was something that she wasn't interested. In doing so for me from a really young age I was just always you know as a child who has a missing parents I was just always like you know where is he? What's going on? Why is it my dad or my life? You know I had a lot of questions from my mom And she was like, well, you know she always told me like you know he's probably noaa somewhere and she's like I don't want to have any communication with him. She's like. Grow Up and do your thing. Right. When you're eighteen, you know if you feel like you want to start a search to find him go ahead and do that, and so I'd always planned. It was always something that I wanted to do because I did want to figure out who this mysterious person was and hopefully have a chance to meet him. What kind of things were you interested in as a little girl? I was a really weird sort of child and I think part of that has to do with the fact that you know I didn't have like cousins around and we didn't have a larger family dynamics that was really kind of you know alone are little bit. But that had me outs exploring the world's a lot kind of on my own. So you know just really curious about nature and the environment and kind of more of that than people in socializing. Aspects of the world so kind of a little a little bit of a different

Coronavirus caused two-thirds of US excess deaths: study

Yes, you need a flu shot
"Any sense for how bad the flu season will be Thiss year. There are some rumbling some hopes that it actually won't be that bad. The things that we're doing, you know, washing our hands wearing masks. These are things that stop any virus, And so that's going to work for the flu as well. Unfortunately, what we saw if you look at the Southern Hemisphere, you know, they just had their winter while we had summer. In Australia in in New Zealand. They had high compliance for their flu vaccinations and folks are following these directions of social distancing and wearing their masks, and they had a historically low flew year. That is not only good news for them, obviously, but it could also be good news for us because that means there's less virus on the planet and fewer people are traveling. So those combined forces basically means that we may have a lighter flu season here as well as long as people continue to get their shot. But nobody should be using this as a reason or excuse to not get a flu shot right? Exactly. These hopes are optimistic. And there are other folks who worry that we will have very bad. Flue year and not our hospitals could really get hit hard. So, yes, go get your flu shot. Are

Open a big blockbuster if they cinemas on so not only if they had to deal with covert, but now you've got mass protests. The last thing anyone is going to do is a open a cinema. Regain obey. People aren't really interested in going to the Cinema Z eight. I think the stat that I heard was at least eighty five percent of domestic cinemas in the states must be opened before wonder brothers will consider releasing tenant. So, what does that leave the state of the New Zealand Cinema Industry? Struggling events obviously. Publicly having to make quite a few people redundant, the company and and strategic The income has been flipped zero. I mean they've had to close the doors They want to get open as soon as possible. Points will be the same as Aaron combined. Strident Company the signs of autism and am I think they've had a couple of little cinemas Australia open, so it's says already saying they were ready to go as well so that what vein China is going to do as it's, they've got licensed for a couple of really great big screen old school films. They've got diehard They've got alien and aliens. They've got the Matrix and they've. They've got the Gulf Gremlin. So that'll probably open the doors and Shiduan a few of those table back in which for someone like me I'm pretty doggone much aliens on the big screen any day, but it's not the same rates as opening a fast and furious or black widow. It's just it's just not we at the behest of America that's at the end of the day. It's not like they're gonNA say Milan can show in New Zealand. Because of course they want to show in China Nikki Curry's been very specific about this at the story having come from China to be a film that they will embrace and cinema sort of. Cars, but the New Zealand there as a potential big upside. But how big is that I mean we head the Avatar crew? Arrive and we've made a big deal of that. American producer Jon Landau has made the cut. He's making the sequels with James Cameron. I'm in New Zealand on the set of the avatar sequel. Restarting the three point, three billion dollar film industry, which provides CD, four thousand jobs can't come soon enough. Is that the beginning I mean? How realistic is that that this could be a real bone for for making New Zealand I think if we get an Thurston getting hard the. The question that we could take advantage of this situation and Einar NFL from from the film commission has been talking about this, but I've also been speaking to a lot of hits of production houses by stable New Zealand, is obviously people from screen time and around the traps that have big co pros at corporate productions that are shaping up and down the country that would instantly put on hiatus, and all I need is one or two people own honesty I think there was one production that needed just three Canadians to come back into the country for the entire production of. I I. Two hundred people I'm to kick back into into action and I know when the the covered. The new protocols were released by the New Zealand Film Commission in Ed slutty started to get kicked back off. I know we side Fatih Three's production kicked off last week, and then narrow from running for the final season, the casting again for ads, which means casting agents awaking again, and you'll have location scouts out, and about the power of the dog started again today, the giant campion one at so. Those are ones that were already in production kicking off We've always been looked at as a great place to shoes. If we're able to let people into the country, that's the biggest cave. There's absolutely no reason why they can't be a bone. You've got those brand. New spanking studios have just opened as well which I'm dying for a snake Baker and we still up. And we need to. We need to capitalize on this because. It's a big industry, and it also means if we can't blanket late hold of internationals, and even to be on cruise. It means we have to look to new. Zealand people to to fill those and I know a lot of companies will recasting roles was looking for New Zealanders because they could get their internationals beckon. So. I haven't been asked to be customer waivers. As Weaver and etta. Consider and it's great having their Avatar people back in here. It's a huge production, and it employs just hundreds and hundreds down through the tracks, but they'll be all sorts of other little ones cruising bacon as well. I certainly hope so. That should be entitled to that same exemption. So, what do you think the future is for international film festivals I'm so interesting and what can has announced last week? Week as it headed selection and couldn't show them the festival. Obviously, they cancelled the still, but they've given it as a kind of a badge of honor with Anderson's French dispatch might go to white to say this film I'm at a host of other international films I've fifty of them have been given the CAN stamp of approval so that they can go out and be released as a can. Qualify as sedating when you look at the the cover or the poster, and it's got the the Ken Competition or out of commission in can am which is rents massive badge of honor. But you've also got an opportunity for those films into use to market themselves, which is really really really great thing to do. Venus sounds like I'm not sure. If you saw a story at the weekend. focusing on in it's just it's just nobody there in the city. Obviously tourism's it's. It's only way of making money and the Venice film festivals, Joe and September the governor has said that that phone will go ahead. And if it does so, the feast is confirmed it will be the first big major festival, so everybody's diversified, but everyone wants the film festival circuit back up and running well as Kate Rogers sees the international film. Festival circuit is the life blood of entertainment, reporter and filmmakers distributors the entire industry. Some have canceled this year. Others have gone online New Zealand's is just weeks away from going online for the first time in its forty eight year history, but getting the it for the new boss.

The anxiety that came with covert the not knowing what the future might hold from all different corners, all of our partners in everyone that the fistful normally interacts with. They didn't know what the future was looking like, and they certainly didn't know what a digital online fiscal future was looking like. Are you talking about sponsors? And all sorts of says he s and the rights holders industry it is both internationally and locally because it it had never been done before, and there were a couple of vegetables internationally, that will sort of jumped on the online format before us better yet. We've been making it up as we go along and it take like all of lockdown to get their the.

The New Zealand filmfest was going online rather than. No I'm so glad you asked me that because. It gives me a chance to to have. People understand that it takes six months to set up a film festival.

"Today New Zealand prime minister just into order said the country had stopped couvert. Nineteen and it's trucks and Sunday officials recorded just one new case. There is no widespread undertake community transmission in New Zealand. We have won that bet. Oh but we must remain vigilant if we keep it that way. So at midnight tonight country will begin to loosen. The strict lockdown measures put in place a month ago in Crete safely retuning more New Zealand to work enabling businesses to reopen allowing some of the recreational activities. We've missed in the past four weeks New Zealand's ambitious strategy has been to rid itself of the virus altogether. It's not the only country that's nearly cove and Free Australia. South Korea and Taiwan are also now contemplating life beyond the virus country's policy responses to the pandemic vary widely but New Zealand's approach may provide an anchor for a virus free region of the world. The mood in New Zealand today on the cusp of the lockdown listening I think is one of cautious optimism. Kimmy Salmon is a staff writer at economist. People are also just looking forward to a bit more. No melody being able to get things like takeaway food again which hasn't been possible for five weeks one enterprising New Zealand Did manage to freeze a box of Kentucky. Fried Chicken at the beginning of the damage. He's been enjoying at his leisure. Almost everyone else has been cooking for themselves for over a month and aside from Fresher Fried Chicken. What changes today? What is moving down a level where they will still be a number of restrictions in place but the government says that about an extra five hundred thousand people will be able to go to work. That's about twice as many as we're able to go in the last month when it was just essential workers and things like construction manufacturing will reopen as long as they can put in place acceptable safety measures. Schools will open at least for students who can't stay home and other activities. Some of the fun parts of life will be a little bit more possible again so Kiwis can fish again and they're allowed to go surfing as well other. The Prime Minister perhaps doubting Kiwis Natural Surfing ability. Did Caution New Zealand does. This is not the time to try out a potentially dangerous new hubby and so New Zealand has had quite an unusually strong lockdown so far. What has the prime minister's objective bannon going about it this way. You WANNA sit itself. Quite a unique goal eventually eliminating the virus entirely from its shores. The hope is that this would bring really significant benefits. Whilst many other countries risk cycle of lockdowns preps gregory openings and then maybe fresh restrictions as another wave of infections hits New Zealand's government believes it may be able to send New Zealand young and old back to work without having to worry that the number of cases will surge again altogether. Because it's actually gone from the country completely. This could mean your schools shops restaurants operate without special social dissing requirements live. Sports with an audience could begin again and this of course would potentially provide a lot of Sydney the businesses who could then hire people invest in new equipment without having to worry the couple of weeks. They might be shut down again. And the prime minister itself has really emphasized us in warned that oscillating between different levels of lockdown could be much worse than what they're hoping to do with the strategy of elimination. And how achievable does that seem to be? Well there's no doubt that finding every last cases of the virus will be very difficult currently this testing of workers that don't have any symptoms but that are in jobs which might be risky supermarket workers or health workers. That kind of testing will need to be expanded. A lot at it's been described as finding a needle in a haystack by the Prime Minister. Herself preps most significantly though elimination is a strategy. Means that really strict border requirements will have to stay in place so today almost all foreign as a bad from entering New Zealand and even returning citizens are placed in quarantine for fourteen days in monitored hotels and the government's own economic models assumes that New Zealand may have to stay close. We'll have to stay close to furnace for. Of course those some do doubt with this is feasible or even worthwhile to do for such a long period. Well worthwhile is certainly question. That's being asked all over the place everywhere that there is a lockdown these sorts of trade off questions. What will the cost be of a virus free island but one that has exactly zero people passing cross-border one it's important to recognize that of course? New Zealand will be effective regardless of what it does with. Its borders. It's going to be hit by a global economic downturn just like ver- but of course these controls do add some extra complications. A big one is with tourism which was Zealands biggest exports sector. Four million people visit New Zealand most years and this kind of strict border controls could knock about five percent off of GDP and put potentially one hundred thousand people out of work and similarly exporters need to still get their product out and while the border is open for goods there are far fewer planes leaving to take those products out with them and before this crisis New Zealand had eighty percent of its airfreight freight go- and passenger planes but ninety five percent of the flights of the national carrier and New Zealand have been cancelled and says now a real struggle to find space to even get your horticulture products out to the rest of the world. And how does newseum compare regionally? I mean there are a couple of other evident success stories. Not Too far away. Let's right there. All the countries in the region that also having real success at keeping the number of new cases down to very low levels of South Korea and also Taiwan although there recently struggling with a new outbreak coming from a naval vessel Australia for example has been able to reopen its beaches. People Are Swimming and surfing. Again they're opening up elective surgeries and dental CA- and South Korea's even allowing people to take holidays domestically but it is true that in all these places officials cautioned that it's not going to go right back to normal quite yet but also in the region there are places that have had no cases whatsoever. Right I mean other countries that presumably also have their borders closed. That's right some of the Pacific islands have had no cases or in some places only very very few and they've also taken very strict border measurements to try to protect populations and simply keep the virus out in the first place. That's working quite well. It seems of course. Many of those countries rely on tourism. And it's not easy to keep your borders closed for a long period to do that. We'll is there. Some capacity for the notionally virus free countries and territories to essentially coordinate their efforts to cooperate under a virus. Free Banner there absolutely is number of these countries Beginning to talk about potential virus free zone the Prime Minister of New Zealand and the Prime Minister of Australia. Scott Morrison of already discussed a potential trans-tasman virus free bubble. And this would only happen. Of course wants they were certain. In both countries the virus was truly in verifiably under control and and frankly almost non existent and then there's also hoped that could be expanded to other countries preps Pacific islands as well so that could be a broad virus free zone in the Pacific but a course that does depend on whether that truly is no virus in the region and that remains to be seen.

The face of the crown is still a human face specifically in this case rick pockets face Mavis. Inner team decided they were going to try and win over Rick Barker. They launched a kind of soft diplomacy campaign. They invited him down to their area. It took him to the forests to the lakes to Mount Bruce Buca and they put rick in front of the very people. Mavis was negotiating on behalf of how people could come and look them in the eye and level hate them as well have a look at this guy you know what's Rick Baecker. Rick Remembers one moment in particular from one of his trips because he just didn't seem to get why sharing all of these cultural sites was a bad solution so Mavis had rick come over to her local cafe. They order their coffees. They sat down. My was very good. She can be very succinct and very clear about what laws that she wanted she said look. We need a place which has for us. A place for us to stand in for is to be proud of sometimes. Just turn the knob on the microscope and suddenly you're the images shop and I thought well I get that I just Moved me it? Apparently moved rick so much that he went to his boss and said look I think with Mount Bruce Pook we cannot split it needs to just go to Mavis eweek and also about that official name. Mount Bruce that needed to change to now. This was the moment that Mavis could have fought to tear down all of those Mount Bruce Signs and replace them with the original name Puka but when Mavis thought about this she was like look erasing. One history with another is the original sin here so completely replacing Mount Bruce with PUPA. That is just another version of the same problem and save. An team agreed to a different kind of solution. They agreed that the official name of the mountain should be Puga Slash. Mount Bruce it is still members Pakeha Slash Mount Bruce so. I doubt want to be disrespectful of syphilis. Whoever Mr Bruce my bane who knows but it but it is about being respectful of all of this. Sorry pook amount. Bruce Fantastic love it but on the side of the negotiations. Mavis enter team. We're a little less compromising. Remember their initial offer from the government was around ten million dollars. She and her team were actually able to get that number way up. It's a little complicated. But in essence Mavis team beat the crown at its own game if the government was going to use a formula. They were going to scrutinize just about every number getting plunged into that formula and in the end the government conceded quite a bit that initial ten million dollar package tripled Mavis e wound up with thirty two and a half million dollars worth of money and land including of course Pakeha slash mount. Bruce of a satisfied was I- throat and I talked to my uncle. He still thinks we got the rough deal and and I don't disagree with them but the settlement was I felt the beast we could do with what was in front of us and offered the way this works. The government doesn't cut chicks to each individual member of Mavis Z. We all that money goes into a trust controlled by the way that they invest the money and then each year. Mavis zooey is able to withdraw a little bit of that money for things to help the community start to rebuild things like additional education health social services so money land changing the names of things. Frankly those are things that government can do fairly easily but the third and final part of each settlement is something that bureaucracies are notoriously bad at apologizing as in actually showing up and saying we are sorry and what was being planned was that a group of government officials would come to save US hometown. That's it up a massive tent. It would be packed with hundreds of members of Mavis e we the Treaty Negotiations Minister Rick. Back his boss he would step up to a podium. And then after one hundred and seventy five years. The crown would officially apologized to Mavis Z. We Netanyeh but look Mavis. Already knew what that apology was going to say. Because the actual words were part of her negotiation with the crown and each side was supposed to review those words before the actual apology ceremony. And Frankly Mavis didn't think she would care that much about the apology because remember in her own words. Words are cheap but we received the apology draft. And I got it on the email and I set a learn in the hotel room reading this apology and just cried all of a sudden these document that says we acknowledged that we did this and reserved. Sorry for all of this even now it. It's still still crates reaction and May Do you want to just read it? Is that okay? Yeah Gortat for hyper cried. Undead guys have crybaby. We're not. We're not cry baiting. I promise okay all right all right the crown is deeply sorry for its many breaches of Tateishi or White Tangy.

Her friends know this about her her business associates and apparently her cousin because one day Mavis was on a trip to New Zealand's capital city. Which you just happened to run into this cousin. Eliza in Wellington we passed in the street and he said to me stop. Anita have coffee with your cousin wasn't just grabs you and pulls you into a coffee shop. Yeah that's how it started.

Yeah well I mean you know a lot of these migrant exploitation scams this is normally the key calls of them which is the disconnect between the way that the lucky hood of getting residency has been portrayed to many of these people are applying for it. This is the reality as it has changed over time and the thousands gathered like a another surge of immigration for example that was a time when about eighty percent of migrants came from offshore. And today when you're talking about people applying for residencies it's the other way round. It's people who are already here and who are on work visas who are now applying for residencies and that is a situation where people have given up a lot to come to a foreign country and with the expectation that Yes it's going to be difficult and they're going to have to jump through a few hurdles but this is still a likely pathway to residency but those opportunities of basically shrunk if you looked at the number of work visas versus the number of residencies.

It really illustrates the pressure on on immigration New Zealand and appreciate from migrants to won't be citizens a New Zealand and I think that it's a New Zealand cultural thing as well. I mean I think that we like to see ourselves as a nation of migrants and as a welcoming country for migrants so we have traditionally been very reluctant to put in place schemes that you know schemes to say Some little Dubai. Where in Dubai they have. A large number of migrant workers come in and they have no expectation that they're going to become citizens or residents of Dubai on a permanent basis. It's just the way it is. Yeah that's the way it is but New Zealand culturally. I think that we have very much shied away from that kind of system because I guess we see that as You know creating effectively a migrant underclassmen ironically arguably You have created a similar situation if you are Basically putting people in work visas and they get they're able to keep renewing them fourteen years but they.

The helicopter pilot moved around the island and did so for some time and so baked report that unfortunately there was no sign of Life New Zealand. Prime Minister just into Delivering the grim news about White Island. Six people are confirmed. Dead at an eight are still unaccounted for. After Monday's volcanic eruption information about the victims is still coming in. We do know tour. Groups went to the island that day to you. See this specific volcano. Some of the missing are part of a tour group on the cruise ship. Ovation of the seas. SYLVANIA's is a Canadian who took the cruise trip. We reached reached him on that ship in Tauranga New Zealand. Hello Hello Laura. What did you see? I was coming down Mount Manganelli which is right by the ship ship. It's a famous landmark Mountain and I came down and as I came down I was taking pictures of the beaches and the ocean that could see in the distance. This island highlands is about ninety kilometers from where we are in Toronto and I could see these huge white plume of smokes going up in the air and they were quite large and and I thought maybe there's industry. They're probably their smoke smoke. Stacks and one of the locals. Who was jogging there? She stopped and told me she goes. Well it's your lucky. Okay you get to witness one of our volcanoes erupt and I was like I was amazed I was excited and so happy. Be Able to capture and see that with my own eyes so I just kept looking at it until until I walked back to the ship thinking we great. I just saw volcano erupt. And Wow how lucky I was until the bad news camp right and the captain makes made an announcement. And what did the captain say. He advised us that you know for those who do not aware. There was a catastrophic eruption of the volcano where guests and crew were on a tour. But he did not have any updates and one thing that stuck to my mind is he said the ship will not be be leaving this port until every passenger and crew as accounted for. What was your reaction? When you heard that I had tears in my eyes and I was holding back and I was shaking and he just telling you now it's getting emotional again? It's it's a surreal feeling to hear this where people that I talked to the night before four were supposedly on that tour is just like it hits close to home. Even though you don't know these people personally there there you know you've crossed path. Where all here you're on a cruise? Having a great time and here you want experience something sectional and then just took kind of put myself in their shoes. They're just completely surreal. How are the other passengers reacting? Everybody was really really quiet. And everybody was turning on their their devices to to to to listen to stream life New Zealand news because they were having copters the the prime minister who is adored. Here she did a wonderful wonderful job like trying to console people and informing people that. That's I think when something critical like this happens the most support thing getting information. People Crave details same. Same as a on the ship. We want return to know just because we feel shaken by this emotionally. What went through your mind when you started to hear just how serious it was? Yeah I didn't realize at what point seriously was until captain made that announcement and it just hit me and I just remember putting my hands on my face and just holding my mouth and the tears were welling up is and it was just like wow. This could be good have been anybody that decide. Hi to sign up for this tour and these starts was three ahead so fast like having lost lost close people to me and and then some people now are going to experience that most likely and and this being one hundred fifth crews on Royal Carribean the last ten years. I've made a lot of friends that are true members and there were true on there and he's just don't know your friends are actually caught up in that it's the rollercoaster of emotions that goes through through a hundred miles an hour inside of us is it's hard to describe as it's unbelievable. So what is the mood on the ship. Right now It's a lot more somboon was before this happened considering we're halfway through twelve day cruise today is day. Seven of the twelve days The mood definitely has changed the the amount of passengers going to venues. I went to a show last night at ten o'clock and there was a lot less people than normally was in previous cruise. Because I've been on your since November number twenty third and it's definitely changed. I mean the only thing that has not changed and I hope we can give a shout out is to the crew of the servers the entertainers everybody on ship. They're performing as they were before and smiling and taking excellent care of spoiling US twelve hundred thirteen hundred crew members on ear over four thousand passengers. And it's it becomes once you leave port you start your crews. He already started making connections talking to people people seeing the same people over and over and then you always wonder was that person part of it were they part of the couple. That was in their honeymoon that I spoke with two nights ago in the concierge ears lounge the guys I cruise ever and the wife was so excited said. I'm making sure that we do an excursion. Every single port. Stop that we go to. They haven't been seen since the incident in the lounge last night. How long are you going to be on ship? Well supposed to end on the the sixteenth of December. But right now. We don't know what's GonNa Happen if it's going to continue or go back to Sydney we have no idea. There's just so bunch of rumors going on Sylvan. Convince thank you thank you lower. Sedan was in Tehran. New Zealand volcano tours. Like the one on White Island happen all over the world. Allen clue runs volcanic Hanoch experiences and he's been taking people on tours volcanoes for more than two decades. He's in Bromsgrove England. Hello Hello Laura. You've been to white island in New Zealand. What is it like? That's what a scary place you can't but feel the force of nature when you Get onto that that island or as you approach it and You know it takes an hour to get there If you go by boat looms large group gets larger and larger with constant plume of steam coming out of it in large quantities. It's a landscape that is is very difficult to describe quite or inspiring the fact that you're stepping into a crater the live volcano. What makes it scary though? I think it's a combination of the landscape itself which is is You Know Bright Yellow Sotho. Lots of steam Bolinger hot springs water. Also the the feeling the evil force you do feel that he could erupt at any time during normally do that. I would say you know the lies. They would never take take tourists stab but the the ground does feel alive for their safety precautions. Then when you went there is safety precautions in that When when you first arrive the company which organizes that particular excursion gives you a phone breathing on safety They tell you what to do. In the event of an eruption they provide you with Hollard helmets and face masks to to keep the the gas out of in your face which is quite accurate so frus guys which does make you cough and dumb. It does make your is smart as well. What did they tell you to do in case taste of interruption basically to try to find some shelter behind rocks to make your way back to the harbors cook? This is possible. I'm curious on the tours that you offer. Do you get up close to love a happy trips. That done For for example Kill the way in Hawaii where we've got fairly close to the law or in the past and also on Mount Etna in Italy but quite often lava although it's hot and flowing it it does flow more slowly obviously but it flows like a river in a particular channel so so you can approach it from the side. Although the wool of heat will keep you some distance away from it You get a good view of going past you. It's not going to change course and come at right you a tool. What do you do to keep people safe on your tours Well I am take people on to places where there are well used. I used footpaths with proficient local guides these tools where there are tens of thousands of visitors Those guides are licensed by the national authorities and They they don't tend to take you to places where there's any real danger. Every volcano is has the potential to erupt but some do have a propensity to erupt violently and produce it's more explosive eruptions And if that's the case then the guides would keep you well away from the crater areas where any explosions. I would be likely to occur how common then our injuries or deaths in the volcano tourism industry. I would say in comparison to other types of Tourism Buddhism. They probably very very low that there was one person that I can recall earlier. This year to killed on the island of Stromboli Trombley erupted but they weren't to guide they'd gun up on on their own and used path which was not used by to restrain. Easy I would say that. The accident that occurred yesterday is really the Very very unusual. Well it changed the way you do anything with your work. I won't change anything personally. Do I think hindsight is a great thing. And for for example ten years ago it was possible to go with guides to the very top of Mount Aetna the main crater and and You know the the authorities following eruptions which didn't actually kill anybody The Italian authorities stopped people going some distance away from from the main crater. I mentioned Stromboli before which erupted earlier. This year I've climbed up to twenty times or more. Well you know since the eruption that took place this summer than what's happened is the Italian authorities have stopped Any access to the upper parts of the volcano here. You can still observe the eruptions but what I'll be doing next year. Risk taking the group to view eruptions from below other than from above Mr clueless. Thank you Allan. clueless is the owner of volcanic experiences. He was in Bromsgrove England volcanoes. Those are risk all over the world even here in Canada there are more than two hundred of them in this country..

"All right so like I mentioned earlier. I've been really digging Kiwi Slang this week and so here's another word. You can expect me to slip into our conversation soon. Jan Dole's calls that's the The New Zealand word for flip flops and it was coined by Kiwi businessman. Who was inspired by the footwear? He saw on a trip to Japan so soon after he and his son started started making their own version of the rubber slip on in their own garage in New Zealand and as a way to pay homage to the culture that inspired it all they name their product. Gender handles which is sort of like a Portmanteau of the words Japanese and sandals. So you know the kids show power rangers right it. Of course the power rangers. I can explain it to you so you know the show was massively popular. It was filmed with us like existing footage in Japan. And then a new characters in California another Mrs but but The show is a massive success and got imported all around world but not to New Zealand. the show is actually bad there for being too violent and and this was true even after production for the show shifted New Zealand in the late nineties. Ladies more than a dozen seasons long running show were filled their ears but kids in New Zealand. Didn't get to see any of it until the ban was lifted in two thousand eleven. Thank goodness was lifted. But you've probably heard all the rumors about all the crazy laws that New Zealand supposedly has like the one that prohibits quote militias bell ringing being a unfortunately while that was really a law New Zealand. At one point it is no longer on the books in fact the country has been pretty good about updating. Its laws and doing away with weird eared outdated stuff but there is at least one exception. Though according to the New Zealand Herald it is still against the law to say no questions asked when advertising advertising a reward for missing property so if your dog drives off with the car one day you can't post a flyer asking them for their return. No questions asked if you you could actually be slammed with a fine of up to two hundred dollars. Here's a Nice feel-good story from a few years back in two thousand and sixteen forty thousand New Zealanders banded together and bought the country of brand new public beach and when the eight hundred meter stretch us in up for sale early that year. Two brothers in law. Adam Gardner and Wayne major major decided to launch a crowd funding campaign to try and keep the beach from falling into private ownership so during the campaign individuals incorporations pitched in to help by the park. The New Zealand government even got into action. They threw in a two hundred twenty five thousand dollars a US dollars to the effort and in the end donors raised about one point seven million dollars which which was enough to by the beach from the original owner and today the beaches run as part of the Abel Tasman National Park where it's free and open to the public. Yeah it's definitely a feel good story but I Actually think I can top this story because one thing I learned this week is that New Zealand is home to the first of its kind a nationwide secret. Santa Gift Exchange so this program started on twitter back in two thousand ten when one New Zealand user suggested that anyone interested should connect through the site and then dig through the post of they're assigned person in order to sniff out clues about the kind of gift that they might like the first couple of gift. Exchanges proved so popular with the public. That in two thousand thirteen thirteen New Zealand's postal service actually signed on as the official sponsor so the program continued in the years since even adding a physical warehouse to help deal deal with all the packages now. Thousands of Kiwis take part each year. And it's all for the sake of making a strange holiday just a little bit brighter. Oh I really like and and I think it is better than my story and it's also seasonal which is I- richest great. So so congratulations. I think you get the trophy all right. Well that's going to do it for today's part our time genius for Myself Mango Gabe Lol. Thanks so much for listening. We'll be back soon with another episode..

The ball in New Zealand here in the US the NCAA is under increasing pressure to reform college. Sports do you think if more top High School basketball players start going overseas like rj that that will put more pressure on the NCAA to allow college athletes to get paid. You know the NCAA did come out with sort word of this statement saying that they're going to allow athletes to be paid for their names images and likenesses but then there was a sort of asterisk if you will and if you read between the lines as I did it's not gonna be exactly what people think it's GonNa be. It's not going to be hey. Rj Hampton car dealership X.. Wants to give you twenty five thousand dollars it's going to be much more legislated and much more limited I would think so. Yeah I mean at some point the. NCAA is going to be pressured by somebody somebody I would think to change things but my experience with the NCAA is. They could be pressured for a long time before they actually act. And so what's at stake here for for the New Zealand breakers and for the Australian Basketball League the NBL. I Know Matt Walsh. Who is the owner of the New Zealand? Breakers is already talking into high school players about taking the same path and having the same conversations with other parents that he had with Rj Hamptons. Parents were gonNA hopefully develop ourselves. Rj Jason that. He is such an amazing experience that we are the teams. If you're going to do this you come place in the New Zealand breakers. I think they took a huge risk. Here you know saying come to our league and you're going to have this amazing experience and you're going to get ready and you're going to get drafted and it's going to be. It's going to help you mentally. What if RJ Hamptons stock falls for whatever reason what his stock falls and he's not drafted as highly as he might have been or what if he comes back and says you know what that was all right but it wasn't great you know this doesn't go well for whatever reason? What are their kid is going to try it? Yeah and so Dana you've been doing on the courtly lied. Seen him first of all in two exhibition games one against the Memphis Grizzlies one with the Oklahoma City thunder first game against the. The Grizzlies was an epic disaster. At half a block by Grayson Allen. I think he was nervous and forcing things and he did not play particularly well he got yanked late in the third quarter for kind of failing to go back on defense and do not play in the fourth quarter and some might argue. It's an exhibition game. Why bother but it was a lesson that needed to be taught since then? He got better when he got to New Zealand and steadily. He's been better as we talked about. Rj didn't move there by himself. You know his parents and his little brother there with him and while you were there. There was a documentary film crew following the family around. And I want to ask this question carefully. Did the situation feels feels strange or at all exploitative to you like his parents clearly have attached a lot of their hopes and dreams to RJ and his basketball career and they've really pushed him out into the spotlight here. Did it feel like this is something that he wants that RJ wants. I didn't get the sense that he felt forced forced at all to be doing what he was doing. I did get the sense that he was. You know it's hard. I was like Waco and all I did these twenty eight Games James and then when I get home I got that I totally someone gave me a wish like say. Are you gotta live whatever outcome but you can go to sleep wake up tomorrow and those twenty eight game or played yeah. I understand that one of the scouts. I spoke to me degree point. That had he gone to Kansas or Memphis or anywhere else especially as is a point guard. There would be sort of an education at some point on how to run a team how to make sure you're being a really good team leader team point guard will the pro ranks. There's not time for raw teaching. There's an assumption that you know what you're doing at the professional level and he doesn't and I think he was having a difficult time at the time coming coming to grips with all of that. Like being benched deservedly so in some circumstances not to say he regretted it but just he understood that okay. This is different than and it would have been if you know go self call me into his office five times a week to have long conversations and heart to hearts and things like that. I don't have that here and Dana. You also also got a chance to talk with Terence Ferguson from the o'casey thunder who also played pro ball in Australia instead of going to college. What did he tell you about? RJ's decision yes so he talked to RJ and his family quite a bit through it and he. His advice to him was do you. I mean he didn't WanNa really sway him one way or the other he said. Did you know he did not regret it. I mean it did not hurt Terence Ferguson one bit. He was drafted first overall by the thunder. And he's playing. He did admit that he was in Adelaide. Eight which is I guess not been to Adelaide but it's a smaller town. I guess in Auckland. Auckland is a pretty pretty cosmopolitan city and he was bored of Auto Ping the best thing I did. I learned a pretty against the wall. I hit off the wall and uh-huh everyday and he got so into the Ping Pong that all of his teammates bought Ping Pong tables and they had tournaments in the locker room based on Terence's playing ping pong like for hours on end funny thing was I told. Rj that's during his eyes lit up. I'm like you should go get a ping pong table and he's like Nah just fortnight. All right so you know. Rj definitely sounds a little lonely over there but overall Dana. Do you think he is happy with the decision decision to go play in New Zealand. Yeah I mean I think happy is a tricky one right. I think basketball wise now that he's playing better and he's finding himself. I think that's a better circumstance. I definitely think that there is sort of a and I don't think he's a regret. But there's this sort of like maybe college would have been kind of fun guys my own age after the game is over we go back to the dorm and instead of playing fortnight and it's I'm seventeen hours ahead of the guy. I'm China play with a match the time I'm sitting next to him in some apartment -ment goofing off being a college kid. I think there is definitely a sense of of missing that definitely a recognition of I've given up something in exchange for this and we'll see if it's worth it. He said more than once because I asked him more than once you know. Is this a good decision. I think this route I I linked route is good good route just depending on what situation. You're in Kenya. And he said I won't decide that until it's over because it's not fair to the judge it right now. I'm going to decide that when it's over in February or March and what about his parents did you get the sense that his parents are happy with the decision Marketa. The being dean much more reserved was the one that said. There is no point in tracking basically in regrets. And you make. That's right right. You've made a decision. You made a very calculated decision to live with it you know. Rod insists that even when he played poorly in Memphis in kind of rebound and played a little bit better in Oklahoma City and played veteran New Zealand. That that's that's what he would not have gotten in the college game that he was getting a baptism by fire frustrated because he wants to do more. And if you've studied RJ seven years. You know he's a killer and but that's part of growing up in part of being a pro and real introduction to what pro basketball would be like that he could not have gotten at the college level I think in in Rod's mind this has been a success will then I think the main takeaway from the story is pretty clear. One of our listeners needs to open up a chipotle in Auckland because there's a very hungry eighteen-year-old there who will put away a lot of Britos. I think actually I'M GONNA I'm gonNA trump the listener and I'm going to do it myself because I think I could make the money and I know exactly where the houses so I know what corner to put it on. I'm not that information that's priceless well Good luck in your next career. Dana and Thanks for talking with us. You can read Dana.

And so people were asked to only bring forward the closest family to bury the loved one. They read out the list of names in groups of five. You used to sing at a funeral cluster. Family around a grave. But what was so striking here is that you saw five clusters of family around five graves, and then you head team. And people were trying to have this kind of private farewell with all circled really closely together around h grave. But they were so close to the other families doing the same thing. And then they would encourage them to file out when they were finished. And they would read out the next five names. And and the third group of five the first name that was read out with others. The four artists body was Borton his father who I recognized from pictures was wheeled and his wheelchair. He's been recovering from gunshot wounds and hospital. But obviously he was able to come out for his son's funeral. He was all in black, and he just waited by the grave, and in the women filed a little way behind him Fatah and may soon after mum and Maine has sister and some other relatives, and they were all supporting each other holding onto each other. And the ashes body was Broughton. And I knew it was him because I could say Abdullah among those carrying the coffin. They had these open coffins with low sides. So you could see the shrouded body inside. And the other's dead Muhammed supporting himself on a cane got out of the wheelchair and stood by the grave as artists body was lowered and everyone head the're hens on him. It seems like everyone hit a hand on his back. And they were all supporting each other. In just stood there for a long time surrounded by all of these other families doing the same. In the shake sang, a llahu Akbar. God is great before the bodies were lowered. They picked up the shovels, and they started to shovel earth into the grave. Dullah ashes brother was going around and giving everyone hugs, but these really completely stock still hugs. He would hold each person. And they would just stand really still for a long time. The in floral arrangement was placed on the grave and the mean filed out they still head the hands on each other's backs. The women came to the grave for a moment and stood the Atto outside the Barrio area will whiting at as football teammates. They filed out and the the Knicks group of bodies was brought in.

"And so I heard about this this weekend while I was driving north into wine country. And I didn't originally I this is how this is how accustomed IM to hearing about these types of shooters. My assumption was that it happened in New Zealand, and they said, oh, we were attacked not because we are open to people because we're closed off. But because we're open, and I my initial gut reaction was oh, we've had another another Muslim shooting like somebody's a mad at New Zealand now, and they're out and know, they've had some sort of mass shooting and killed fifty people turns out that's not the case at all turns out, it was a white shoot or white nationalist who shot up this a couple of amok. I read one mosque here. This is part of the problem. I wanna get to shot fifty people in a mosque. But I got back this morning and started looking I wanted to read through what had happened. And so one of the things that I try and do is I don't I try not to comment on this stuff until there's been a little bit of time. So that I can analyze what's really happened because as Matt pointed out a little later on earlier this morning. He said there was what did you say? There were reports of multiple shooters and pictures of them on as it was happening live. There was stuff on Twitter. There was pictures that were posted of multiple different guys. Fatigues being arrested, and it was an official multiple reports. That went out that said that there was four people who are arrested three men and one woman, and there were multiple different reports of multiple shooters, and is interesting because a lot of these mass shooting of insolently that's happened where there's been reports of multiple shooters and the officials come out and say, it's just one one shooter, and that's it and I can understand like in the Las Vegas shooting where there was multiple different hotels reporting from miles apart. That there was people coming in saying there shooters nearby and in an area where there's lots of large buildings stuff, you could get on the sound of gunfire could be reflecting and weird ways stuff. So people could think that there's multiple shooters. There's only one in this one it was pretty cut and dry. There's multiple shooters going on. So they caught the one guy. So when are they going to catch the next one? But now supposedly there was only just the one. So is your is. It sounds like your contention is that there was some sort of conspiratorial cover up of more than one shooter. Well, I would say what would be that the is a conspiratorial cover up. But just that there's there seems to be a lack of transparency and the the biggest focus right now from the perspective of the New Zealand government. And the media is rather than dealing with the issue and covering perhaps about the victims and discussing the situation itself the media the narrative pivoted to white nationalism gun control and trying to wipe all evidence of the shoot. From from the internet to eliminate his his manifesto that he wrote they're trying New Zealand has made it a crime to possess footage of the event and someone's already gotten ten years in prison for it for possessing footage of it. And that's weird priorities. Hierarchy will let's let's talk through that..

"The what's the new zealand equivalent of the statue of liberty i don't think zealand has wanted minutes what is the comments i'm sure they'll let me know what it would be well might be the statue of lisa dirty this i'm oracle with the punch today holidays that's interesting i didn't i didn't think about dr mike war gang into a new zealand survivor contestant but i think he wants as many opportunities to play survivor as possible so i guess it makes comparisons leeson talk to mike basically the same person if you say no i think in this that that is very very recent episode she would've watched and she's asleep the i think that that probably thinking about the stuff and i think that that may have come into a decision i just think that no one should try to emulate dr mike game play might be whether it was a problem in this don't wait his line of work his game play just anything about his life he's very unique individual let's let dr mike so i do think that those things will probably playing in her mind but it is interesting because she saw it recently and sarah did have control this so it have possession doesn't even give you that much power unless you don't have to my who did manage to throw it in the fire i mean i think all the rules around this whole ownership and possession thing life sumo he international survivor at lodge and it gets very much into the nitty gritty of it which makes me kind of uncomfortable because i think even the producers what's meant to be going on their vote to try and maneuver through that i think is really really interesting kind of dangerous but another question i have is we didn't folder too much did a bit on the put cots last week with me but tricky have really taken short that final eight and take out a win she had the shot he didn't have an idol you didn't win immunity obviously we know he someone who can win a'munity so that was always going to be a threat she has taken the shot when she had it last week so all right let's sort of put ourselves back in ten so it would be her we assume tara would come along with or even even though she says tara is quote unquote a radical and then what she want to what would bring over tests and adam will as it would be the same plan that she had now i guess except it she adra nate into that like he wanted to revenge rene is going to be voting dave no matter what let's be completely honest here so that when that's happened but it could be like a four three one they're able to pull that off yeah i mean it would be difficult and i think that obviously the four three here at seven would have been completely perfect and she was probably just like holding out for that because it does make so much sense into works so well but i do think it gets down to the fact of maybe in hindsight you have to take a shot when it's a pretty good shot like it was it was a pretty good opportunity where matt didn't have immunity you could probably rangel a fi against him in blindside and there where seven would have been the perfect shot but i just wonder if you have to take the uk shot when you have it rather than waiting for the moment because then it may never come right yes some people compare you know playing survivor to like shooting a sniper rifle but it's more like playing duck hunt or it's like okay just fire.
