"There's like twenty eight billion bitcoins or something like that. And that's it that's all there is and so the value of them keeps going up because his that finite number of you can't really mind anymore of them and so as people trade them in demand for it goes up sodas value. But you can't ever print more to devalue that currency right and that's that's one of the big problems that zimbabwe has an is still having is that they just keep printing more money which devalued the current currency can do that with crypto. The other problem that poor monetary policy has an arguably. The biggest problem is just. The confidence of that currency in having valley parkway like in inflation in zimbabwe is rising again is because the public isn't confident that their currency has any value right. Because none of this is backed in anything real. We all have to agree. That fiat currency has a inherent value. If we don't agree then that value goes down if we do agree that valley goes up right but they don't have any any any confidence in these new zimbabwean currency to actually have any value. Because of the last thing. That i said they just keep printing more of it right and if the government could just keep printing money or fucking around with interest rates whenever the hell they want. That's not something that exactly inspires the zimbabwean people to believe that their money is going to have any long term value. And that's another thing that you just can't do with crypto right you can't you can't mess with it in that respect and so as a result people are more confident. That crypto has value because no government can go toying with the numbers in in the you know with this particular currency. Got a bonus for you. Crypto is secure amnesty centralized so all the transactions everything that happens are on these public ledgers and those ledgers are all over the world. they're not controlled by the bank. They're not controlled by government or by even an individual person. There's just like everywhere. That's what the blockchain is right and so all of the like currency is accounted for. So there's not just like money like disappears like it does here in the united states when we say oh i have no idea where three trillion dollars You know it doesn't do that. And also no more money is printed into existence. So it's much more stable. So i actually think that you know we're going to pull if zimbabwe seriously gonna pull out. I think they could be a really good use case for this. And and what's interesting. Is that you know zimbabwe..

"That with a duffel bag full money that by the way was quickly depreciating right or you would have to pay somebody to do it for you. And obviously there's a risk of getting stolen. The solution though is kind of genius. So zimbabwe might not have a lot of atm's but they do have a lot of mobile phones. Something like eighty percent of zimbabweans have a mobile phone of some kind right and a bunch of entrepreneurs scott together and decided to set up these mobile payments systems and it was super easy to get a widely adopted too because zimbabwe's telecoms are dominated by a monopoly company. I think it's called safari calm. And it's a kenyan Mobile network and all these other a foreign national companies like t. mobile and things like that are also all set up all the infrastructure for it already. The idea super simple though so there are hundreds of thousands of these middlemen right. These paid guys who are paid to take your money and put it into like elegant account of some kind so you give them the money and they deposited into an account. That's tidier sim card. And then you just literally text somebody money you just send him a text message just like that and you don't need a smartphone either like this works with regular dumb phones. That have sim cards so you just text them an amount of money. It's kind of crazy And you know what's cool about that. Is that when you get sent money. You have access to that money money with that ends up being tied to your sim cards accounts worth of money. It's kind of like ben mcadoo but like lower tech right And so since most of these zimbabweans already had mobile phones. And they already you know. Did the costly part. That's the setting up. The infrastructure raped the cell phone towers. And all that stuff already built. It was super easy for zimbabwe's people to pick this up. And they picked it up pretty quick and you know they've been basically using a like a form of vigneault or zell or whatever but like lower tech version for quite some time now in sexually pretty lucrative Something like twenty percent of the transactions that are done in zimbabwe are done through this method. It's obviously not all of the transactions. Not even the majority of the transactions but definitely eased a lot of this issue. Because now they're able to move money more quickly more securely and a lot of shops and stuff like that have the ability to just straight up. Pay the text message..

"So whenever you hear the word parallel market what that's code word is for black market crash. So that means that they're trading another currency that they're not supposed to be trading in as parallel market means be black market inflation accelerated after mid two thousand one government borrowed from the rv approached the statutory limit of twenty percent of the previous year's revenue in interest rates remain sharply negative in real terms. The government began to enforce a requirement that forty five percent of institutional investors portfolios beheld in low yielding longer term government securities this together with the collapse of interest rates weaken the financial position of insurance companies pension funds and banks as portfolios became subject to a study and method article process of confiscation. The imf mission observed that there was no evidence that suggests that the government strategy had been successful as business fixed. Investments to construction had essentially ceased rather the negative real interest rates had caused acid substitution away from money market instruments creating bubbles and equity in residential real estate prices. These pricing bubbles were exuberation by the emergence of a growing class of speculators with access to bank loans at negative rate of interest in particular the arby's subsidized credit scheme at liquidity to financial system. Helping to fuel the asset price bubble as a low cost resources have been used in part by exporters to buy shares of these zimbabwe stock exchange or real estate so the acid bubbles exist when the market prices trade far higher than the fundamental says and expansion of the supply of money and credit and economy. It provides the fuel for these bubbles. Like what we see right now. Why what we see the american stock market right now. Wait with bubbles that are forming up. you know kathy woods the other day. She sold a bunch of chairs. The tesla seem like it's gonna pop maybe water But yeah why wouldn't you loan out. Why wouldn't you take a loan out with mel interest rates. Also you know negative real interest rates encourage in attitude of buy now rather than wait bright you know which further contributes to and acceleration of inflation. All right so as inflation continue to spiral. The government continued to treat it as a result of profiteering rather than a consequence of the arby's inappropriately loose monetary policies. The government introduced price controls. An attempt to contain inflation particularly in the price is of key staples in order to control the pricing of maize in wheat. The grain marketing board was established as a monopoly in june then from october tenth wholesale and retail prices of basic commodities and food came under control government control resulting in immediate shortages of these commodities. So what they're saying. Is that in an effort to please the masses the government reintroduced price controls and They started shifting. Its rudder rhetoric against the industry and blamed it for profiteering. soap price. controls are meant to make things more for law right for ranked tumors And know what. They're imposed on their imposed On food and usually energy products that's usually where You used price controls on sometimes. They're meant to curb inflation. And although the reasons for price controls may be Affordability and economic stability. When you see some things that are outrageously priced you know. There's a lot of political pressure to for the government to do something but they typically have the opposite effect. The immediate consequence of these price controls were shortages of these basic commodities..

"Because i mean that's not politically savvy the deal. Hey you're the pay for this war. I mean german word aggressive party in the war. So it's it's it's That's how that no. That was probably the starting point in the story. For the hyperinflation that goes on wine republic the war world war one monetize the debt and know what debt monetization is is when the government borrows money from the central bank to finance public spending instead of selling bonds to private investors are raising taxes so because prices were rising the government introduced price controls. And what they accused the business class or you know industries that were raising their prices. They said they're profiteering so also to make matters worse. Zimbabwe gets into a military conflict in the drc great. So they were. They sent like around ten thousand troops to the congo. Who was under attack by Brandon and ugandan backed rebels and there is no budget either for they're military divers so because of these Controversial activities foreign donors started to lack or scale back their assistance. And when i say four four and go donors i mean government and foreign aid along with the imf so they were like just spending their money. Pretty hard yeah. Yeah in also doing controversial stuff to give foreign aid when when there's a kind of aggressive policies going on so i'm going to quote from this paper again so in june two thousand a fast track resettlement program was announced by the government covering five million. Heck heck tar heck char's carers hectares harrison. Okay sorry everyone covering five million hectares and one hundred fifty thousand families in two thousand compared with a three point. Three million hectares and seventy three thousand families resettled since independence in the process to state listed. Two thousand four hundred fifty five farms for acquisition in terms of the announcement. The government would provide compensation for any capital improvements to the land but not for the land itself till prior to that though. I think it's important to note. A lot of these farms. Were actually being dated like people. Would you know a lot of these. War veterans would just go and say hey this is my form we gotta go right so in. A few months later The rb z. So essential baker zimbabwe announced a twenty four percent devaluation of zimbabwe dollar so it introduced a crawling peg exchange regime and what crawling pegs are used to provide exchange rate stability between trading partners so specifically when there's a weakness in the currency so typically crawling pegs established by a developing country whose currencies are linked to the us dollar or or even the euro. That's what crawling. Pegs are used for All right despite subsequent adjustments however the army chief failed to adequately adjust the exchange rate currency was still significantly overdoing overvalued by with the parallel market about twenty five percent more depreciated than the official rate..

"Fifty thousand zimbabwe dollars alongside a monthly pension that was equivalent to one hundred twenty five dollars. So what this this This pension plan did this payout to war veterans dead. It immediately inflated the budget by fifty five percent on the previous year now. The war veterans. Were still not very happy about this because they wanted to. What they actually wanted was to land reform program so in nineteen ninety-seven november mugabe response to these pressures. Any announces plans for the Compulsory acquisition of white owned commercial farms. Thus there is fourteen hundred commercial farms that were put up the sail. So what is does. The reaction is that it scares foreign. Investors because zimbabwe lacked the The budget in the financing for both this pension plan and it also lacked the budget and financing for the land acquisition process. Because they have to buy them. You know what i might have to compensate people for the farms. They're essentially nationalizing him in there. The government is buying farms and in their redistricting Distributing to other people and you know when there's distribution like that too. It's not the most needy people anyway. Let's say if you were given handouts and stuff you're just giving it to people who are friends with mugabe like you're it's it's a political cronyism. That's what the distribution is you know it's not to serve some higher 'cause or it's well intentioned it's just to be like hey look political powell's we're we have power who wants some land. Once you get a farm. You get a farm. You get a farm but pals. And i i've listened to some interviews to and a lot of it was like mugabe wasn't thumb. He wasn't a dummy. It was more like an internal pressure From his his cronies who who wanted stuff who wants who wanted his property right but Art so to go back. There's a there's a flight of capital and does zimababwe dollar at crashes in november fourteenth nineteen ninety-seven and it's caused the government to monetize their debt. Because there is already political chaos and riots. Because now we're going through an unstable time so the last thing that you can do when you're going through political chaos and riots is say okay. I got an idea. Why don't we pay your taxes are gonna raise right one of the reasons. Why what we discussed and our episode about the weimar republic hyper inflation. Is that the whole world. War one was financed without raising taxes. World war one was completely financed by the printing of money right. It wasn't financed by tax taxes..

"Think of like historically speaking was the japanese taiko land reforms during the yarmuk period which we also talked about where they nationalized land and patties were allocated by the government and pretty much every six years all free. Don't mills Received about point three acres and females even got landing point two acres that actually did result in a measurable population growth and a higher agricultural output. But i think there that's more of an exception than the rule thing. Generally speaking doesn't work out very well and in the case of zimbabwe. Doing this land reform killed both zimbabwe's economy and its food. Supply and as soon as the farms became less productive the demand for the food rose and so did the prices super fast and at this point daily inflation reaches ninety eight percent and the the economy totally collapses. Well i have this. So i have this paper that paper and i'm going to be quoting up. Jason coomer and thomas g- rushton taller you name rugged try good. Try strolling taller. Strauss german dollar. It's austrian probably. But i say it's just a women australian strand. Sorry i'm mispronouncing the name but mispronounced everything. No neighbors calmly hard. The papers called the the hyperinflation in zimbabwe and it was published in the quarterly journal of austrian economics. Opening surprised. you're quoting. You're quoting a paper. That was written by austrian economist. It is one of those. You guys know who i am by this point. I'm all right but in a disclaimer in this paper that the reliable data is often unavailable. So they're abusing mostly imf and nation numbers and then some information from the zimbabwe Federal bank central bank. But just from the imf the un. So i'm gonna go through the paper and then we can kind of just throw in points in here in. Turkey was interesting because this is probably the most thorough Paper that. I've i've seen covering this covering zimbabwe's hyperinflation so in the second decade of independence disease zimbabwean government launched an economic reform programme essential liberalizing the economy in dealing with these structural impotence to growth however fiscal policy was weak in monetary policy unsteady during the time period and the country suffered from too serious droughts which affected zimbabwe's agriculture is economic industry. A land reform had been a highly contentious issue since independence as the majority of prime agricultural land was owned by about four thousand white commercial farmers while the indigenous population continue to engage in substance farming so allegedly this land reform act. The first there was a couple of different land. Reform acts in the first version of it was relatively reasonable. Not saying was right but it was relatively reasonable to the later ones that come come after it and it required things like fair compensation and the form land had to be underutilized so they weren't as grabbing farms like there had to be some type of precedent. Okay you're not even using the farm and things like that right. But i mean for america still makes sense. Yeah it was a little more politically tactful. But then it escalated from there in the second half of nineteen ninety-seven because the government. What they do that. They announced a new compensation and pension plan for war veterans. So war veterans of the Other rhodesian bush were Their independence struggle and the these payouts apply to about sixty thousand war veterans and they were to receive a payment of.

"Be the final stage in zimbabwe's battle against neo-colonialist So you can see why the the white people there were uncomfortable with mugabe and this layout the context. So even after after zimbabwe's independence white for about five percent of the population but they also owned eighty percent of the land While the majority native africans were left with really just kind of the common lands that were on arable at that. You can really grow anything so for convex throughout the colonial history. History of bob way in through the eighties and nineties zimbabwe's business was large scale agricultural. Exporting like they were the commercial farming sector had been one of the main sources of zimbabwe's economic wealth yet make tobacco actually to cash crops So you know. They were a net exporter and employed their commercial farming industry employed about four hundred thousand workers. However during this period most of the country's most productive farmland it belonged to the white minority mugabe. He began efforts at land reform. So white farmers were required to transfer land to You know the african Black zimbabweans so this is what sets up zimbabwe's hyperinflation situation right and and i had to give a little bit of context to that because as said i think it makes it sound like the black zimbabweans were the cause of the inflation. I think that's a little problematic. Yeah i'm not saying that. Yeah of course. I just want to clear that up for anyone's just want to clear that up for the folks that come in the review section. Pretend like we're saying that it's their fault in two thousand mugabe's you know does start doing this program beginning forcibly seizing land from the way farmers for redistribution and initially. He pitches this as a as a way to correct for the colonialism's unjust pass amusing super hard. Air quotes here because really. It's just a play to get support So that he can consolidate power for himself and you know the the farmers he put in place When he sees that land in more more often than not they had little to no farming experience. sometimes they didn't even wanna farm at all And he also gave a lot of land to his political cronies who obviously didn't know shit about farming either off any of the experience. White farmers were actually fleeing the country because mugabe's military basically using lethal force at times to remove them. You know so..

"Right and the draw for the colonization here was the fact that zimbabwe had an abundance of gold platinum coal and diamonds which are all very lucrative resources for a late nineteenth century empire in because of the foreign capital of combined with the technical skills of rhodesia Rhodesia had a high standard of living compared to other african countries. Not exactly for everyone though. The territory was mostly entirely run by and exploited by small white-minority. But now we're just absolutely definitely. Yeah it was a racial state. But compared to other african countries there was a higher standard of living in asia for now nine hundred sixty five rhodesia becomes an independent country from britain. Well they were not formerly recognized by the rest of the world. But you know. They carved out their own nation state and know what they become is one of the two independent african that were governed by a white minority so the other being a south africa. So after rhodesia's independence from the british empire for the next fifteen years. There's a lot of political turmoil and violence mainly due to these these race. Politics knows what's known as the rhodesian. Bush war right and there were two native political factions that formed out of this conflict. zano z. a. n. those the zimbabwean african peoples union and they were backed by the soviet union and zap who Cap you The national union Which was backed by malice. China and Basically once zimbabwe declared their independence in one thousand nine hundred eighty the national union. One out and robert mugabe was elected. Prime minister mugabe by the way was total. Piece of shit He immediately consolidate power So his army was trained. Under north korea's kim il-sung at time believe it or not and day immediate. I'll go out and start killing dissidents which is yeah just par for the course for dictators You know a couple other things he did. He gave himself the power to dissolve. Parliament declare martial law. He got rid term limits And he ruled for about thirty seven years which is four short of africa's Which is interesting One fun fact. He was interviewed once and he let slip that his opponent one seventy three percent of the vote and then he immediately corrected himself Which is so ridiculous. It's actually kinda funny so yeah. Mugabe is You should read a really funny article about. Mugabe is justin raimondo's justin raimondo. Wrote an article about Him going to a conference and mugabe was speaker there And he got really upset. He's like i'm not. I'm not attending like i'm not speaking at this conference. Would that despots here and just as really funny article about him like just it's time to just look on google. If you went. Listen read this. Justin raimondo mugabe. By yeah he he would call this error. The third chiwenga. I think that's house pronounce. Jimmy chan shimon chiwenga moranga. It's jim ryan just fucking around it. It's super similar to the palestinian intifada. Actually bit the same way. But yeah the i guess. The first to morongo was the revolt against they had a revolt. Against the british. In the in the late nineteenth century and then the second was the rhodesian bush war and then this third period mugabe called the third trimaran gaza and was supposed to.

"And on a good day you could withdraw the equivalent of two to three us dollars. Which was probably like gano. Quad like quadrille ian zimbabwean dollars. Something ridiculous right and or more likely probably that. There was no money in the atm machine. Because just can only hold so much and it was practically costing more money to print the money than the money was worth itself at the time. The government was spending something like five hundred thousand dollars per week to print new bills which were sent over from germany. But by the time they got the shipment in the money was already worthless which is also hilarious And you know all this created new problems As if people just going to work it just wasn't worth it some some folks. His annual salary wasn't enough to cover the bus fare home. So why would they go. we're talking about economic ruin here and it leads to the defacto dollarisation of zimbabwean economy. You know when the inflation hit two hundred and thirty billion percent the government declared the us dollar as its official currency Other currencies that were used for the south african ran the british pound indian rupee chinese yuan and of course the euro. There were also all used as legal tender Simultaneously with these ridiculous hundred trillion dollar zimbabwean dollars but that also made it supercomputing to buy things because everything had different exchange rates. Those exchange rates were changing pretty rapidly. So buying things wasn't consistently priced right. Like you might get a better deal if you used a euro then you would a yuan as an example said. It got very very confusing very quickly. What's interesting is you can buy. And bob way trillion dollar notes on ebay if you go and actually i was going to say that later but now that we mentioned it some. I actually looked it up. And there's one hundred trillion dollar zimbabwean notes going for like two three hundred bucks on ebay right now which is worth way more than they're worth. Which is hilarious It's like if you wanted to make a quick. You know flip you could just take those notes that you had that were basically worthless. i mean. leave it to the internet to buy useless shit but like you know. Lectures item like up zimababwe zimbabwe notes of a hundred dollar one hundred trillion zimbabwe dollars. It's just it's just funny to have yeah But you know you heard stories about like people using the currency is toilet paper and shit like that like it was cheaper. The kindle currency was cheaper than the than the actual toilet paper. so that's what they used So how did this happen while you know. Most of it is just extreme corruption and real things reckless spending and pacifying different disgruntled social groups and pointless military adventures and seizures of commercial farms But l- let's hit the background so zimbabwe used to be a british colony called rhodesia. Well technically south rhodesia what in eighteen ninety three zimbabwe was colonized by british settlers and they were led by minding magnet name cecil rhodes so cecil rhodes was sponsored by the british government..

Six point five quinn killian marks each of which had fallen to one trillionth of its nineteen fourteen gold value And pretty much everything and ymer. The weimar republic was costing trillions of marks. So to get out of hyperinflation they had to introduce a new currency called the mark that was fixed to the value of gold. Now today. we're going to be talking about probably the second. Most famous case of hyperinflation probably top three most cases three for sure weimar republic hungary and then zimbabwe in late two thousand. Everyone knows about zimbabwe economic collapse in the late two thousands or maybe they don't they're about to you about the wall is a real fascinating case study so We wanna talk about it today. So zimbabwe is the first country to twenty-first-century to to hyper inflate and it was devastating In february two thousand seven zimbabwe's inflation rate toppled fifty percent per month. Which is the minimum rate required to qualify as hyper inflation and for marriages sort so november of two thousand eight eight inflation reached an annualized rate. Wait for eighty nine point seven secs television percent. That's leading nine point. Seven six million percent didn't even know that was a number not know that was number either so sex. Ten million is a number with seven commas. Yeah said another way. That's eight nine. Seven with twenty zeroes after it. One easy euros. So that is the rate of their annualized inflation. Jesus so how the hell does that happen. That's the question like what the hell was going on in that economic system. That's what we want to talk about the make that outrageous number reality so one of the reasons evolved. This wasn't the reason. This is the consequence they were issuing one hundred trillion dollar notes and those hundred trillion dollar notes worth about forty. Us sense it was the technically the second highest inflation in history in that second postwar hungary which now that i say that out loud we should probably do our next episode on inflation about that one day in the life of the zimbabwean at the time was like this you.

Go tang the country's most populous province which includes the largest city johannesburg and the capital pretoria had the brunt of the current surge accounting for about sixty six percent of new infections health. Authorities are concerned that the country's eight other provinces likely to soon see spikes in cases to match those in go tang well. Hospitals are running short of covid nineteen beds and patients being taken to health facilities in other provinces neighboring zimbabwe namibia and mozambique also fighting growing numbers of cases hospitalizations and deaths south africa's vaccination rate is slowly picking up speed by sunday.

Ambassadors of Science
"Welcome elaine and alan. Hi thanks for having much fiving us. Thank you for being here so first off. Can you both give rundown of how you came to choose science as a career alan. You want to start first ago. Fist so basically. I was fortunate enough to grow up in zimbabwe and the uk and during the time of kinda witnessed the spectrum of life on the side so in zimbabwe children dying from israeli curable. Diseases over here in the free healthcare so from that point on which i was always fascinated with science and knowing how culas in medicines work in order to kinda help people help alleviate some of those those problems faced and are now found myself here doing exactly that. When did you go to the uk was yes or me and my family migrated here in two thousand and five When i was nine years old. So yes oh. Half of my life was spent in zimbabwe in tough with my life has been spent here in the uk. Elaine how 'bout you. How'd you get started in stem. So i had a different background in. Just the i was always really interested in doing fun science things. So you know the star of your cook at putting main to suites into bottles of coca cola and getting the rockets and things like that and just generally really curious about things that i was really fortunate to have parents and family and teachers who encouraged release support that so i guess through school i was like. What do you want to be when you grew up. My answer was always something science. But i didn't really know within there and i guess for maybe similar to allen's story is that i was also really driven to to help people by did work experience at a hospital an absolutely hated it. I remember. i watched a patient get bone marrow. Taken and high nearly fainted in the patient was asking me. If i was okay and i think that was the end by medical career
The Ariel School Alien Sighting
"Today's story is so bizarre and so hard to rationalize the only way to make sense of it is to go through it piece by piece from the very beginning it centers around the aerial school a private primary school in the small farming community of rua about twenty miles outside of zimbabwe's capital of harare. The students range from as young as five the way up to age twelve. I don't know what the school is like. Nowadays but back in nineteen ninety four. The kids would run around the playground every morning for their recess break. Friday september sixteenth was no exception. It's almost the weekend. The kids are excited as they're running around the playground. Meanwhile inside the building teachers convene for a staff meeting while they're gone. It's basically understood that the older children will keep an eye on the younger ones and not far from the playground is a ticshop which is basically like this little deli or canteen that serves students mothers rotate through managing. And the momma duty. This morning is allison kirkman. Now allison's minding the shop when shortly after ten a m. A student named luke runs in. And he's looking like he has seen an actual ghost. He has this sort of wide eyed stunned expression on his face. Ben luke tells. Allison he's just seen a literal alien outside now. Alison here's this and brushes it off. I mean she basically tells loop scherf very funny. Quit pulling my leg. But luke keeps insisting that he saw quote a little man in a one piece suit with a band around his head end quote ultimately alison isn't convinced enough to leave the tuck shop investigate even though her own daughter. Fi fi is out on the playground to in fact fi fi and her friends or just as stunned as lucas. Apparently the students were out running around when they noticed this thing hovering in the distance beyond the edge of the playground.

When will the West Seattle Bridge be fixed, and how much will it cost?
"Has been nearly a year since the West Seattle Bridge closed down because of the cracking concrete, and now we're getting some prediction on when it might be open again. Here's Chris Sullivan, and that prediction is the end of June 2022 that is the target goal for returning traffic to the West Seattle Bridge, But that's about a space Civic is the city can be. I would like to be very, very specific about the time and date when you will be able to drive across the bridge. I cannot give that to you today that Seattle's mobility director, Heather Marks, who also also cautions West Seattle residents that include herself that even when the repairs are complete, that doesn't necessarily mean the traffic is going to immediately return. This is not a repair where we're just going to drop tools when we're done and open up the bridge, too. Traffic. We want to make sure that this is safe and we want to be able to measure and see how the bridge and the repairs respond to additional live load. Drivers should expect that the lanes to will open little by little over the days and weeks after repairs are complete, primarily just for safety and to prevent backups. We also need to think about how to create the conditions under which when we open up that first lane Everybody doesn't you know, heard to the bridge and we have backups from follow. Right, Fareed I five. So we need to think about that to the city has reached the 30% design Fresh Holden milestone on this project, and the request for bids went public yesterday. It's gonna be an interesting partnership. The way that they're doing. This is that they're bringing the contractor on board at this point. That will allow the contractor the winning contractor to work with the city on final design, from 30% completion to the end that allows them to see any potential problems and design as they're doing it that also helps speed up the process. It's expected that the repairs we will begin in November, repairs to the lower Spokane Street Bridge or also included in this contract that needs a little shoring up works and cracked filling, and it also might need some repair to the center locking mechanism. Mark says. It is possible that there will be times when both the high and the low bridge will be closed the same time, But she expects those to be brief. To the extent that we have to close the low bridge. We're gonna aim for weekends or holiday weekends to make sure that we're disrupt. Thing as few people as possible. Now, Speaking of that low bridge discussions are ongoing about how to allow more access to that lower bridge on call. Medical workers have been added to the list of people who can use that bridge while racing to the hospital. But they end up getting it a photo enforcement ticket and then have to prove they were an emergency call to get that wiped away. Not really the most efficient way to do things. Seattle police have told me that automated photo enforcement issued more than 7500 tickets in the 1st 15 days of February. That's just a two week period. But since then, and more the word has gotten out. The city says that more than 2000 fewer vehicles a day are now using that bridge, which means okay, maybe we have a little extra capacity. And there's a big push right now to allow people who need life saving medical care like chemotherapy or dialysis to use the bridge, but The problem is Terminal five, is going to reopen for business on Harbor Island next year. And so the city is worried that if they allow more access now, they'll have to take it away later and they don't want to do that. They don't want to carry that. Briscoe start opening a lot more. We'll be exactly because they're going to see significant amount of freight traffic. And because of that, they're going to see the capacity go away. As for the money, the dollar figures in all of this $175 million is the budget. That covers the repairs to the West Seattle Bridge. The lower Spokane Street Bridge also includes the money already spent for the showing process, traffic mitigation improvements being made in West Seattle. The monitoring work city already has about 124 million of that, and it's aggressively looking for Mawr's, according to Sam, Zimbabwe, the head of the Transportation Department. We're moving are a lot of different paths forward. We don't project that funding is going to be the challenge that Holds us up in this, but we still have some some fresh holds across and make sure that we have the resources needed to bring this resource back online.
An Expert's Guide To Curly Hair
"Welcome to. I'm sharon hunt and this week's look dropped by. Guest is the incredible ruby aka the guru of curly and afro hair. Ruby is originally from zimbabwe but nowadays. She calls australia home. The originally self-taught stylist fell into hairdressing by accident. After witnessing friends and families struggle to find someone that understood this strands so she wound up doing it herself in her lounge room eventually she took up an apprenticeship began stalling out of multiple salons before finally opening up her own place. Rooming co in two thousand four room. Be thanks for dropping by. Thanks so much for having me sharing now. When i was a kid i distinctly remember being told if you ate all your crusts. Yo hey would go curly and i really badly wanted. Kelly has a you better believe i was gobbling down the crofton. I of course realize it was an old wives tale. That parents just tell you to eight year food. But i have to say. It's not the only myth that i've come across when it comes to curly hair. So why do you think there are. So many misconceptions about kohl's. I think something is misunderstood. There's a desire to want to make it a lot more palatable to each individual like answer for that very reason people come up with their own anecdotes around what this complex appendage actually is so people come up with so many things now yes i mean you told your cross for me. It was like eat your vegetables. And your hair is going to be straighter. You know what i mean like. Oh my gosh eating those so yeah. I think it's just because people really want to understand something that is complex and so yet this is where a lot of myths have come along and i hear them all the time. I've got lots of them to ask you about. Oh let's go. I guess to start with with. Kelly has to understand that. There's not just one type of co run us through just as an overview the different types of kohl's because you can tell by looking at someone calls not the same to the next. So why should you treat them the same one colleague on one hundred percent. So there's three curl types wavy curly in africa's how we sort of break down but then when you're looking at the typing system you've got type two which is wavy and that's lusa curls and there's three subcategories of that you've got to a to b to c and two c would be the tightest within that range and then you've got type three which is curly and within that again. Abc and c. And seeping tighter and then same thing for africa harrah's well after or coyly hair. Because i guess everyone who has coyly hair has an effort background. He is another curly myth. I've come across curly hair. Shampoos a marketing hype and normal shampoos worked. Fine let's start right there fact or fiction fact. They all marketing hive. Well okay no no no let me put it this way curly hair. People shouldn't shampoo their hair. That's a myth. Okay great stafa. Let's start there because that's actually. What's more commonly said trump who your hair. I've heard condition as well really. Yeah stop it. Maybe straight hair. How should you be carrying the curly hair. When it comes to washing its really simple. One of the things that i say to my clients often is you have to get rid of straight hair tendencies right. And how do you do that. It's just simplifying it. And which is part of what we do. We try and simplify everything for our clients. Because if you don't do that it's as though you're eating soup of the fork and that's gonna be very frustrating. And so how do you shampoo we take people through this whole process and it's like pretty much. Get the right shampoo first of all what you need to have the right product. Because not all sham periods would then be the same. Most shampoos actually stripped your hair. Which is why in some way. Yes don't shampoo your hair. I get with people. Come with that myth because it doesn't leave your hair as hydrated but then when you've got shampoo that is specifically designed for curly hair. It's supposed to cleanse but also hydrate to leave your hair feeling very moisturised. Soft supple and clean as well without streaky. Feel that you get when you get a deep cleansing shampoo

Just go to weld without wind dot com and click on the membership top. So let's get my guest today into being a lady who's pretty well known here in south africa. Her name is maryanne sheera now. Maryanne is a woman before had time. She wrote a book called the natural way more than twenty years ago. An only now is the way of life. She advocates going mainstream on apart from being an author. Marianne is a motivational speaker. And she runs a very successful pekan restaurant as well as running natural health programs. I'll begin by asking maryanne satele to bit about herself. I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes. It was just all like niggly stuff that was affecting our relationships and was affecting the way we functioned from day to day. And i have always been interested in the human body i prob- i might have become a doctor. But i'm i'm glad i didn't because it made me look for answers and other places so i was fascinated with the human body studied physiology anatomy and chemistry in the sciences and i was fascinated with the how the human body worked. So we're not. We started having these problems and we were being treated traditional medical way with anti anti-inflammatories and antihistamines for a head allergic dermatitis. On my hands and the kids with antibiotics just didn't make any sense because nobody actually got well. all it doesn't seem to do is suppress symptoms. And then they'd come back two weeks later. I saw the athol up. Gotta find answers. This was long. Before the era of google that really dates meet And just go and do a search on google. And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else. Give the small lobe to somebody else in the big global grow and then you've donated your smaller that logo groesbeck like this is the most amazing thing and yet when it comes to lever cancer you told is no cure for it. You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states. The funny thing is it seems to be taking of now first published in the states in two thousand five fifteen years not getting traction. So it's like if it does take off and i happened to reach the new york times. Basically nobody can ever say was an overnight success at this pathetic years. So you're a woman before your time. Someone emission to really help people if i can get rid of my bipolar symptoms and be completely sane And and thinks straight and have a brain in and and bow bowels and bladder that works properly all the time and be living in that sweet spot of health than anybody can do it. Because i had terrible problems. Janet listening to all calls from weld without wine. Marianne take me about you just mentioned alcoholic parents. It that intrigued me wondering if that was one of the reasons why you want it to research to health unle- to healthier lifestyle was that of a trigger. I think it. I think it was. I think you know even mentioned to some one time that i want to try to get drunk when us fourteen and jank moms cara pheno one and didn't like the way i felt i felt out of control and i think that sense of not being in control of my immediate environment and i wouldn't say i'm a control freak but i needed to be common working properly and audley at the sense of order i think that comes from growing up in the chaos of alcoholic appearance at home and my mom was a party animal. She was functional alcoholics. She could party all night and go to work the next day in absolutely fine my father however party will not and he wouldn't work for six months and that was you know he'd worked for six months and then not work for six months to a year or two years so we grew up with that sort of chaotic and then my parents got divorced because my mother said she had four kids anita fifth one. My father married. Somebody was crazy as he was. You know do things like pour petrol over my stepmother and threatened sitter a lot this crazy stuff that chaos does makes you want to live an ordinary that the thing. That really got to me when i was a kid. My mom had this medical encyclopedia. And i would pour over at the age of four hundred. All these gory. Pictures of people as innocent large thyroid landed was like the size of pumpkin and the knicks and these open ruins and at sit there and cringes kind of not. Wanna look at them. But it's fasten. The human body fascinated me from a very early age. My mom was kind of forward thinking as much as she was a party animal. She told us we couldn't chew gum or drink. Physical because our brains would fry and and we went lottery comic books either. So i had the sense of trying to do the right thing I think it also grows up with you know you grow up with a parent. That's a bit narcissistic. i think. Alcoholism in a sense is a narcissistic habit. Because you just carrying about a million myself. And i'm trying to numb my pain. You know not thinking about the responsibilities of life you know growing up with it. I had the saints. That i wanted to please my mom and do the right thing so i was considered the goody. Two shoes in the family just always trying to do the right thing in an nfl had to take it back to pregnancy was a need to just have off in my life Feel like yeah. Things went as chaotic. As they've seen. We moved a lot as kids. You know doing a geographic alcoholic. Parents do that things. Don't work you just move somewhere else. Yeah i've i've come across two different reactions when people have Parents they are do what she did. And react against the kale. Some won't control an order in their life all they they tend to say well. You know sin family. I'm bound to be that as well and then kinda give up unsolved drinking as well so Is that been your experience as well. Do you think people tend to go. A different one of two was party. Animal ended in two brothers. That partied hard. I mean they crashed a few calls when they were aided. And that god they've grown up and grown out of it and They've so but very working my two brothers especially very sober and very hard working And and i just think. I think what you you learn the learned behavior sydney. I look at myself is it. I may not have been addicted to alcohol. But as very addicted to sugar so ahead addictive side to me that anita to the sugar made me feel good in that space. So i suppose in a sense. I was doing much what people do with alcohol when us feeling unhappy or was feeling sad or on feeling like a done something. Well i would reward myself or console myself with suga whether it was fragile candy or cake. So is scream. It didn't really matter how much as i said. Even propane sugar staying out of the sugar bowl. As i got older. I became health conscious. South for made fudgy using brown sugar. That was really good. But you're that that that needs that sense of of you don't you you know parents at properly as if you growing up in an alcoholic home so you learn. The navy is that that it's a k. To satisfy yourself for full let need with a something in a with some people it could be gambling. All pornography will with made was shook end and food as a compulsive overeater. And the only reason we're glad clinically obese of always been physically active and and if i was not eating properly and exercising. I wouldn't ever sleep. I would. And i think that looking at having dealt with so many people in our family and with people have met of the years that alcohol sometimes puts people to sleep just eventually knocks you out so eventually do sleep when you're very active brain not taught how to look off draw brain. How what does alcohol do to bring. What is caffeine due to the brain so one minute drinking coffee over here and then that's like over stimulating central noticing. Make all your nerve cells five. Ab rapidly and then you'd having alcohol too. Because that's a natural depressant than you take the to calm you down and put you to sleep and then you wake up the next morning and you hung oversee start with the coffee again in the brain goes into overdrive. Then you would lots of sugar into the coffee. So you just getting on this treadmill and i think i think if we were taught the staff about how everybody body reacted to sit and things from when we were kids. Part of the reason assorted school is that we would understand how our body worked and figure stuff out pretty soon and make good choices. But that's me probably being idealistic as well if you were talking to someone. That was drinking super too much. They weren't really aware of what it was doing to that office. That brains. what what would you tell them. How would you summarize the home that it does to us. Gee i'm the first thing we know. Is it really damages the central nervous system in the brain. And we've now these quite a lot of research showing that parkinson's disease which michael j. fox got a really young age and he has a. He was a big drinker. Huge drinker everything. I've read on him. The alcohol played a big role in. He's laughing was younger. That can damage your central nervous system. and it doesn't do it alone. Units alcohol and sugar and bed diets and bed living but alcohol plays a huge role in that. It really affects a whole lot of things affect your central nervous system in your brain so you don't handle stress well and lacewell you handle stress. The more you're going to drink because it numbs you. Eugenic feel you can just numb yourself. you stop feeling in dozen courage assistant behavior because it becomes all about my feelings and my stress and my money to numb in. I mean we all know this. We would go without food in a hassle appearance drink and i've seen it in other families. The mother a single mumble drink because she's lonely or because she feels a failure whatever. Her reasons are and there'll be no food in the fridge. Another normal alcoholic friggin. Look on his nets moke in there in a piece of cheese. And that's about it if you lackey Most just don't have food in them. And i know as kids if they was cheese enough ridge. We would flatness in like half an hour because he's a no win. The food was going come which didn't help but encourage things like a compulsive over eating so a central nervous system and that's the one side the other side that in a fix and impacts really badly as the indicating system and that's a system that controls every single part of the buddy janice it controls your liver your lungs your kidneys digestive tract your muscle tone. You sleep your menstrual cycles. Your facility these nothing. It's not in your breathing. Your lung function your hair. Growth your nails. You'll skin it it. It affects every single part. The endocrine system produces hormones in different parts of the body in those hormones may chemical reactions take place which makes the body function properly. Have alcohol's interfering with it function because what it does is it actually pushes your blood sugar up really really high so you feel like good on alcohol woo and then your blood sugar over produces your body produces over produces insulin. 'cause you're about to go into a diabetic coma and in your body's designed to repeat itself over produces the insulin brings it all the way back down and as it starts to slide mcdonagh feeling really tired immaculate and sleep and pass out if it gets really bad And then you you. You might have something like coffee or tea or another drink to try and raise your blood sugar again so when you blood. Sugar fluctuates fitting brain and central nervous. System your endocrine system and your immune system and you can understand the not explaining this very well with the whole covid. Nineteen they send. People are drinking and having caught accidents but alcohol suppresses immune function. That's what it does. So the government instead of educating everybody in showing us adverts over and over which i think would help better than just locking everybody down and telling you you know these content touch alcohol reagan so ridiculous. You can't buy alcohol during the on the weekend so everybody's just by way more so every restaurant selling wine under the counter to the clients you know because they can't make money selling food during lockdown. It was bizarre to see the activities that going on at the end of the day understood. Exactly what it does. And how it suppresses immune function we must take these things a little bit more seriously than being wrecked on the knuckles suck educate people that teach them the stuff so i think other thing that it does and this is fascinating. Refined sugar does exactly the same thing is alcohol does just desert loose something called reactive hopper blah seamier. Which when the blood sugar shoots up to high we over produce insulin and brings it right down so down so far down your blood sugar that the part of the brain your frontal lobe that controls moral behavior planning and forethought will just shuts down completely. Okay and the part of the brain that takes over as part of the brain that controls aggression appetite and sexual function. And i think this is probably really important to help people understand these blackouts that they have so you can have a blackout but you not passed out you just living life. I mean. I know a girl that poured wax all over yourself. Hot wax in that state couldn't remember how she got burned from this x. She took all our clothes often. Did this is absurdity. Because the people that were they told her what she does. She could not believe she did something like that. I had a woman that came and spoke to me. Because i was when i speak often speak about the stuff because it played such a role in my life and how important it is to make. Sure you're getting the right kind of glucose about in a while. And she came up to me after she said. I'm embarrassed to raise my hand and tell you what i do but cannot speak to you privately. Acid short can understand when she told me the story. She said i'm going to tell you. I'm very very committed. Christian person go to church regularly. my husband's actually involved in the leadership of the church. We go to bible study on wednesday nights. We go to between one and three services and the sunday we we're involved in the charitable work and stuff but she says periodically. I wake up in another town or another suburb in strange man's bid. And i have no recollection of how i got the and i say to you consume and she said. Nah don't i said are you a sugar addict. And she said yes osama title sugar addict and it does the brain. What alcohol does we. You just black out completely. Obviously you've got to be extreme amounts of sugar to do this but alcohol does the same thing you drink. Extreme amounts you'd binge drink and the knicks thing you wake up and you in somebody else's bid and like how the hell did you get in the shame of all of this is worse than you start drinking again and this whole thing goes on so what happens is when the primitive brain takes over. You either going to get aggressive. You're going to just eat and eat and eat canoe appetites. Just nothing's gonna be enough or you. Could your sexual function could take over. And you become extremely promiscuous and that's clearly very dangerous because besides possibility of fathering all mothering a child you could end up with terrible sexual diseases. So it's it's a huge problem and people don't know this until somebody like me comes and tells him and nobody studies this. Because you take the average psychologist or psychiatrist. Dr they studying medicine and how to cheat you when you sick with medicine and surgery than looking. And what is the cause of all these problems and vivian often. It's a physiological or physical course an and utrition is something that's kind of just ignored and net. That study was done with reactive. Hoppy glycemic was done by women. Called baba read stood. She lived in the united states and operated in stable municipal area and she was in charge of the juvenile delinquent and criminal juvenile delinquent and the prisoners. The adult prisoners in the end the juvenile delinquents and she found that of them something like ninety three percent of the people that she'd work with suffered from this reactive hypoglycemia and in that state of blacked out. Where you can't remember what went on people will kill the family. They'll the children we ask you. Yeah then they will beat somebody into coma they'll be do the most. They'll they'll commit a crime. And they have no recollection of course when you committing crimes being something people like as easy to say you lost your mind and you can't remember but it's an actual condition where you had no recollection of went on. It's completely blacked out. You listening to reply to alcohol. The podcast from world without one if eat lights join our tribe. Please check out website. That wine don't cold so yeah. Apparently those many people in child but have done that have a blackout killed somebody. You cannot in jail recollection too. Many people in jail i mean. Can you imagine Horrendous but blackouts very common in all community. We talk about the loss of people have blackouts. I used to have the have them as well Boston is like all it was a walking talking blackout because I was with some friends for afternoon. And apparently i seem quite normal. You know i was walking around talking. We'd walk quite a long way together. I have no recollection. I mean we'd been drinking since frightful Drink but i. It just hit me over the edge. I lost an entire. And you know i used to have blackouts where the end of the evening was a bit fuzzy Quite remember how it may be. But this one was really serious Hated the idea thought woking talking blackout the fat my brain was so alcoholic couldn't even make memories nazi Absolutely terrifying and here's the thing that people don't understand is that you'll cells and your buddy a designed to consume glucose. Nothing works in your in your at salable. You got thirty seven trillion cells in your body. They desperately need glucose they needed to make. Atp a denison triphosphate which is what creates energy your monaco andrea desperately. Need that your every little organ nelio in the plasma critical in these tiny little things inside the cell that you can't even see with your naked eye it needs glucose your brain and central system can't work without glucose and if you're not getting enough you going to crave alcohol or sugar and barbara read stood say we knew feed children refined sugar growing up on any level. She said you're actually preparing them for alcoholism because they get into the cycle. The blood sugar going up and it's coming down and they feel that the sugar satisfies and then you you graduate from a kid to adolescence or young young person in your twenties wait sitting stuffing faced with ice cream and chocolate says locked kind of interdict so will have a drink and it does. What sugar to to you. And now you recognize that. Except that the alcohol gives you even a bit of feeling takes you higher disrupts you lower so if we understood that we need need proper glucose for body's natural glucose and and so often when i've done a talk i actually say to the audience and i remember reading this one year at a secrets convention at sun city outside johannesburg. The were probably five hundred people Woman and i said to them. Okay if you do any of you crave sugar and they've just everybody put the hand and i said when you craving sugar. What is it that you put into your mouth. What is it you put. And what is it that you actually craving an attempt to get the point across.

They said the guards used the same controversial knee in the neck hold that killed George Floyd in the U. S. Earlier this year.

Pandemic power-grabs: autocrats seize Covid opportunism
"At the beginning of this year, protests were roiling India. For one hundred days, hundreds of thousands of Indians raged against proposed changes to citizenship laws that would discriminate against Muslims. It was the biggest campaign of civil resistance in decades. But the protests swiftly died out after local curfews were imposed in response to covid nineteen curfews that were particularly strict in mostly Muslim neighborhoods. Too many these new it seemed like a calculated move by the Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi quashing dissent under the cover of the pandemic we'll muddy don't believe. In. A televised address to the nation on Tuesday, he underscored the dangers of the virus and called for renewed vigilance as the country heads into it's festival season. Eve. The bobbly. Deployed but behind the scenes, there's growing evidence that he's been using the crisis for his own partisan ends. Last month citing the risk of covid nineteen spreading within India's parliament. He announced measures that severely hampered lawmakers questioning the government the opposition walked out allowing this mody to Ram through twenty five bills in three days. These kinds of authoritarian tactics are on the rise around the world. The think tank Freedom House counts eighty countries where the quality of democracy and respect for human rights have deteriorated this year. The pandemic has been terrible not only for the human body, but also for the body politic Robert Gassed economists foreign editor. With everyone's attention on covid nineteen, what a crats and would be autocrats in many parts of the world have figured out that they can do all kinds of bad things safe in the knowledge that the rest of the world will barely notice let alone object and where are the countries where this is the most worrying it's a completely global phenomenon. A one end you've got China, which was a dictatorship before the pandemic but has really cracked in Hong Kong the human rights abuses against the we have gotten worse this year we're finding a lot of places is that the pandemic gives governments very reasonable cause for tightening down on on civil liberties for reasons of public health. But. What then happens is that many of them have taken it further than that. So it's not just that they are restricting public gatherings to stop people spreading the virus. They're also using those rules to prevent demonstrations and protests against their own terrible policies and what does that kind of repression look like in practice So you take in Uganda for example, it was an opposition member of parliament called Francis. Zach. Who noticed that? He's constituents we're going hungry because of the recession caused by nineteen. So he's the give them some help you know packages of rice and sugar just to get them through the hard times. Government had said that only the government was allowed to give out food and if anyone else tried it the government said they do incompetently, the crowds would gather and that would spread the virus. So the president actually said, you know we will charge you with murder if you try to hand out food aid when you don't the government will from. The opposition member of parliament. He was very careful to do it in a way that wasn't going to spread the virus. do packages and have them delivered individually to people's doors on on the backs of motorcycles the day off the he did it the police came to his home. He says jumped the fence while he was showering through minivan dragged him off, put them in prison tortured. Him are unbelievably horribly and they said to him while doing doing it we can do anything we want to you because no one can come out and protest because there will look down because of the pandemic. And that's something we're hearing. All over the. World. And it seems in a lot of cases though that it it's these leaders are doubling down on the kinds of populist attitudes and policies that put them in power in the first place. That's exactly right now, one of the strange things about a panic about a contagious disease, and this is something we can see from academic work that's been done on prior pandemics is that people become a bit less rational and a bit more xenophobic if your political persona is someone who is going to stand Up to external threats, then pandemic is a great time to double down on that. So you see Narendra Modi is government in India has always named Muslims for many of the problems in India, and now they're blaming the most super spreaders of the virus in Bulgaria seeing Hauch lockdowns on Romany neighborhoods and others are Turkeys religious authorities blaming gay people first spreading the virus Malaysian officials are blaming migrant workers, some of whom have been caned and deported. So you're seeing lots of this stuff it's a strangely Popular response when people get and I suppose pandemic conditions make it somewhat easier for for autographs for governments to control message. Well absolutely you're seeing a significant increase in the number of restrictions on the press and it's usually done in the name of public health. So people will pass a law against spreading fake news about the virus, which would, of course be be dangerous and they used that to criminalise any criticism of the government's response to the virus, which is completely different things. So you think all over the place. So in Zimbabwe anyone who disseminates wall, they called false information that impedes the. Response to the virus can get up to twenty years in prison and they're arresting people for things like trying to visit in hospital opposition activists who've been been by the ruling party in. El. Salvador they purged seventy journalists and relaunched a state TV outlet on the the president said I. I'm am watching a very balanced news cost with grin and then adds i. don't know what the opposition will see because of course, what they will see is something that's actually pro ruling party. But look innocence global freedom was slipping autocracy in general sense was rising. I, mean how much of this? Can we definitively pin on the pandemic? You'll right global freedom has been declining since probably just about before the financial crisis of two thousand and seven to eight. So this represents a an acceleration of pre existing trend and with each individual violation of human rights you can never say I mean, it's it's like weather and climate change. You can never say this incident could not have happened without the pandemic I mean would would China's rulers still have inflicted such horrors on on the weekends this year without Covid nineteen with Thailand's King of grabbed nearly absolute powers. would. Would Egypt executed fifteen political prisoners in a single weekend this month maybe they would have done those things but these these outrages would surely have faced stronger opposition. If the whole world's attention had been focused on the pandemic, which is tossing everybody's lives in chaos and sucking up all the attention is much easier to get away with these things without the rest of the world looking at what you're doing. So we can be pretty confident that his a significant factor in why things have gone worse this year.
Where Does Bitcoin Fit in the Global Reserve Currency Game?
"This is going to shake out how disruption manifest in real life is really hard to predict. But at this point, we do at least know what appear to be different paths that this thing could take if some sort of cryptographic. DIGITAL MONEY OUR future. So Andreas I'd like to throw this one to you to start us off. You've got privately issued. You know literally anybody can do it crypto currencies. You've got so-called corporal coins like the Libra, you've got national digital currencies like we see coming out of China, and then you've got things like bitcoin. So like what are kind of the attributes of these different things? What are the strengths and the weaknesses of each approach or perhaps I'll ask it a different way. What could actually work and what do we know won't Well I'd like to just take a brief that back and say you know even though the US has abused his position, the dollar, and even though there are a lot of contenders for the kind of multipronged geopolitical power structure that doesn't mean the US dollar is anywhere near losing his position as reserve currency in it may lose some of his control but the problem is that there is no good alternative in traditional currencies, not the not the. Ruble the politics. There are two fraud together. One likely contender is not a crypto currency or digital currency at all but is some form of synthetic currency built and managed by the International Monetary Fund's so some kind of SDR based synthetic basket currency that is constructed, which may or may not have a blockchain is kind of unnecessary. It would be a centralized currency that emerges to replace the dollar. But again, you know the IMF isn't an independent organization. Ezer and the problem is there's a vacuum right now in terms of something to replace the US dollar and so we might end up with a brief period where in fact, there are a number of competing monetary and payment systems because it's not just the reserve currency social, the payment system, the US dollar as reserve currency goes hand in hand with swift as the international wire transfer settlements and payment system and control of both gives the US. Enormous geopolitical power now, Europe and China have tried to build alternative versions of swift. So they can bypass controls. The US imposes unilaterally a great example of that would be the embargo on Iran, which Europe, and many other countries under the previous agreements have essentially allowed Iran to sell oil, and yet the US continues to maintain an embargo on his backed out of its treaty obligations. So in that particular case, there's a need for an alternative payment system. The payment system going hand in hand with the reserve currency actually gives us a hint as to the importance of blockchain's in this base, and because of blockchain is simultaneously a payment system and currency and the consensus rules govern both. Now, whether a nation states could make a central digital currency CDC, it's called whether corporates currency could survive or whether it would be some former crypto currency that emerges to fill that vacuum I mean that's a really loaded question and I don't think any of us can answer right now I think what's going to happen is we're going to simply end up in a world where there's a lot more fragmentation. Will Continue to work for some things. The you on and Euro will work. For other things. We'll be libra other corporate currencies that will be central bank digital currencies like digital yuan or digital euro. They'll be her tow currencies and we're going to enter a period of massive fragmentation where things are going to be complicated, and there's going to be more limited liquidity more complications in trade and more exchanges happening across all of these different forms. At. The beginning of this episode, we talked very briefly about how one of the sort of use cases of global reserve currency is to store value in some form other than the one that your government has control over, and we've seen this sort of throughout history with different episodes of heavy inflation hyperinflation in some cases where the money that people think they've saved and have simply goes down in value and can buy less effectively at the end of it that I think is really important part of this conversation and I have increasingly been thinking that. Lacking an alternative lacking a system that actually has neutrality Bilton as a base level assumption you're looking around for what's the best option of all of these bad options right because again, like using the US government's money as your reserve currency when you're in Zimbabwe will, that's much better than using Zimbabwe's hyper inflating currency. But on the other hand, the US is integrate situation either it's essentially the cleanest dirty shirt one of the things that I've really been curious about. With regards to the Central Bank digital currencies. As you said, so called CBD's is whether or not these could behave like a truly neutral system or whether we're just talking about taking the existing very slanted system, which is in favor of whichever country has sort of, as it's called the exorbitant privilege of being able to just essentially right blank checks that you don't have any money to backup, which then people use as their own form of savings in their local country. Whether that changes the equation here whether having something like Bitcoin that although it's neutral and available for use by everyone can't be influenced as we used to say a lot more, you can't hold a gun to the head of math, right? Like there's some protection that's built into that neutrality and I just wonder if that's something that we could ever see or that any government would ever allow to happen in a nationally issued central

Phil - Growing up gay in South Africa
"It can tell from Phil now. He grew up in South Africa where he knew from a very early age that he was gay, and he got bullied for it from the age of eight I think I always knew from a young age, but for me it was different levels of awareness so when I was really young I found myself getting those butterflies in that shy feeling by looking at old is so you know when you see little schoolgirls and they all shy when they see their friends older brothers Zoll. Things like that! That's how I felt and it felt. Different to looking at my other male straight friends, who would get the same feelings for girls? So I had the awareness that they was a difference there I was getting that feeling by looking at guys, but they were getting that feeling looking at girls, and what's certain Cevennes near young mind that there was anything wrong with that, or did you just sort of acknowledging and and run with it I think as I got older Changed the way I. I thought because the majority of the people I was hanging around with were attracted to the opposite sex so I then thought okay. There must be something wrong with me because I didn't know anybody else. Who has in the same situation as me? Let's put this in a setting. Then how old were you? Where were you growing up? I think the awareness really started when I was four five and I grew up in South Africa. That's young, isn't it? Yeah, well I mean the thing is i. that's why I had different levels of awareness as about myself as I was growing up. So I mean yes, I had like kiss catch with girls, but then I had the feeling. Oh, I want to play catch with boys. You Know I. think that would be a little bit more exciting. And then I got a little bit older and. It was. Should I be having these feelings and I think you are actually the first person on the podcast from South Africa. Yes, so I don't really have much of a sense of what it's like growing up being gay part the Elliott Bay Community in South Africa what what was it like south? Africa I find is a little bit more. Conservative than here in the UK. And at that time it was quite homophobic. Very traditional men do this woman do this. That really affected me and I found it quite difficult. There were slows thrown about about being gay I can remember being a kid, and for those the listeners who have some experience in South Africa the word was more fee, which was fag basically and Offie Molefi. So. I was called that a lot I didn't even know what it meant. My mom tells me about the story. When I was young, I must've been eight or nine, and and I would go to my mom in our say mom, how do gay guys? And she said to me I know Philip. How do gay guys walk and I said I don't know, but the people at school are are teasing me because they say that I'm gay because I walk in a certain way and I didn't even have a label for it, but it was really really hard, even for my mom and Dad. They never really had any experience in lgbtq stuff and they've learned a lot through me. Yeah. It's a similar story with a lot of people are told to. Kind of like a lot of parents learn as they go on, which is why sometimes their first reaction isn't always the best one because they literally done what to say, they have gotten a reference point. They haven't met any other LGBT people until that child comes out. This is what it was like with my mom and dad because they grew up in Rhodesia and Zimbabwe. and. It was a lot more conservative than over in the UK, so they didn't have a reference. They didn't have any friends and relatives that were comfortable in coming out and saying who they really
Living A Wild Nomad Life With Uwe Allguer
"Hello Travel nerds and welcome to the extra pats travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less I'm your host Chavakacheri and joining me today as someone who is a founder through and through. He's founded a CO working space in bonds go, Bulgaria, a nomad sailing retreat, and he just started another project called wild nomad safari. I goya from while nomad safari dot. COM did I. Get that right. Awesome. You did very well Travis. I'm so happy to be on your show. Thank you so much. Thank you for joining me, and it might be the hardest pronunciation I've had. You helped me out before this I, asked you to say it I. Spelled out phonetically, so I probably won't say your last name again, but who? Else, I can say the first name I've got it going on. Thank you. Thank you for coming on and the first thing I'm gonNA. Ask You because I get asked this all the time because I like you I have ideas, and I want to do them and a lot of them I. Do and a lot of my don't do. Why so many different projects like? Why did you feel called to do so many different things? Oh Man, this is a this is a hard question, but I just love to do things and I love to do things together with people I love to you know actually I started traveling I always traveled since I'm young since I have a passport I obviously. I had this urge to go somewhere to find out. You know not to run away from something, but to go somewhere I was always drawn to fireplaces. Across the Atlantic duties. And Yeah So. Then I got to know my mom. Go friend at the time on a sailing trip, and so I got into sailing. And saving was just. It's amazing. I love saying I love being out at sea, and so forth and Yas, so I love to do different things you know, and I think adventures If you if you are on adventures, it's where life happens. You know out of the comfort zone. Many tear down walls of comfort zone is like Benue, fee your life, and when you do this like it. And you go, and you'll find out you explore. This keeps me going this your life actually yeah. I think one of the neat things about entrepreneurship. Just you know and starting different things is it gives you a similar feeling too? When you're traveling right because it's new, that's that's that's. The rush were probably after his. Yes, we like to see new places. Eat New foods, but the key is that it's something that we are not doing our regular life, and so these new projects that you're launching and trying out and starting, it's again. It's a new thing even if it's even if it's not getting out and traveling you starting a co working space is a new thing. It's something you haven't done before and I. Correct me if I'm wrong. That seems to be the draw right of just of a challenge. I think you'll like the enterpreneurs. We have a problem you know. So the thing is. We have to Shiny Object Syndrome okay, so there's something POPs up and you're like all. It looks Nice, and I think the problem with me is rather not to do things than doing things, so it's. More challenging for me not to start something, but although I think I have time and. I was working in most of my time. I worked for a corporations. Had good jobs I was well paid I was like I had a great life. Work life and it was really cool, but on the other hand you know I was wondering what is out there what I can do what I haven't done yet you know, and for whom do you go and work? You have to eight to five and you know like. It's it's the daily grind, and then you know at some point. I I asked myself. Why should I do that? And now I have the time to do different things and I laughed. I laughed to be the master of my time. I think this was always my biggest goal. To Mazda my own time. Yeah, we have a little quote or are saying that that Caitlyn and ricky who were parts of our location in the community, brought up, and and we kind of adopted it as well, and it's this idea that freedom is our currency, and so it's not saying that we don't grab the money, and we don't do businesses to make money, and we don't want to be good business people, but it's prioritizing freedom and one of those kind of people don't think about is time. Right is like we we talk about. About Oh, I wanNA make enough money, so I can have enough saved away so I can retire, or I WANNA be location independent. We hear that a lot and I talk about that a lot rate, but the other. The third part of that is the time and that's something that I think people don't prioritize enough is saying okay well, what am I if I'm working towards something and give out my time? What am I getting back and is that as valuable as having my time? Because a lot of times, the answer would be no. Yeah. Absolutely also triggers if you don't mind I want to tell a little bit of my story, so the thing is you know like the background? I did lots of stuff. Also jobwise I couldn't keep longer with the company for two years I had to. I was always drawn by our stuff anyways, but one time I thought you know like I was so disappointed by by one of my bosses. Said I'm going to create. That's for sure, but I didn't want to quit in the blue. I wanted to do something meaningful brings something meaningful to my life, and then I thought I. Want to learn a language better, and I want to work overseas and this before monster or chop search online. You know this was like. Two thousand six sexual, I can say to you, and then I was like applying like. Randomly basically to find a job overseas I talked to my friends to my travel friends, and so on support, and finally I got the job as development aid worker in Zimbabwe in southern region of Africa. So this is stockton and. So I really got the job and I went to symbolic and I so guided the project and ahead them to to do ICT to bring computers into rural areas in. Coastal Lake Kariba. And this is where I found out. I really got grounded. This see the people in Africa and you see their problems, and you see their lifestyle, and you see what they do, and these you know, somehow these really shook me in a way. It awaken me you know like. The people are happy. Their basic natural, being state of being happiness, which was completely I couldn't understand that at that time I thought pulling my leg. I. Thought They Make Fun of me. You know, but their natural state is happiness and I saw this. It was so interesting and the people are so grounded, and this is when I started more intensely traveling, and you know like and very got more grounded and looked at things. Rather on the lifestyle. Then then on. How much Kanai accumulate. Of, because this doesn't bring you any. By the end you know like when you look back on. Your Life is not what countered on your bank account what Collins is.

What Bungee Jumping Taught Me About Visualization
"What Bungee Jumping Tommy about visualization by mascot of free to pursue DOT COM. It's one thirty in the afternoon. The weather's perfect. The crew at Victoria Falls Bungee have just wrapped me in. They've done all the necessary safety checks to ensure good to go there now helping me move to the edge of the platform, because my ankles are secured with tight straps around too thick layers of folded towels to protect my legs from jarring. They're about to receive. My toes are over the edge I. Look out over the Embassy River, and then I hear it three to one bungee. Jump off the platform with a grin on my face and start screaming, Hoo. I take it all in my initial weightlessness, my rate of acceleration, the of the cliffside, the rushing water below, and finally the deceleration has the Bungee saves me from a much shorter life than I would like. I bounce up and down another half dozen times before the experience comes to an end is the best one hundred fifty seven dollars. I've ever spent the not just because of the Bungee jump was even more valuable. Was the lesson I learned in preparing for this experience? One day earlier. On the morning of August twenty, second might travel Buddy Michelle inform me that due to a tight travel schedule, I'd be jumping on August twenty third, not August twenty fourth, as at initially prepared for I didn't say anything at the time, but it didn't sit well with me at all. Up to that point I'd been confidence. I played out the day in my mind for weeks and I felt in control this change tip. The scale and fears favor the reality now. Is that Bungee jumping? If it were still on, the table was to happen number one a day earlier than expected number two after a morning flight on a four seater Bush plane. Those are always eventful number three shortly after we arrived at our lodge, rob our bags, check in and take a shell to the bridge and number four with no. Way To get oriented or settle in. Let's just say that I wouldn't be in my happy place. Later that evening my friends started speaking enthusiastically about the jump, and stopped her dead in her tracks, and informed her that the change made a significant difference to me the sense we were rushing to get in and the fact that I felt I lost some control of the situation changed my jump status from green to amber with a tinge of red. She struggled to understand and I struggled to explain. Processing the change. I've told many crazy stunts over the years. Bucket list does not lie. Bungy was far from the toughest, but of needed to feel that I was in control of the variables surrounding the experience, which both insured I felt safe, and that I can enjoy the moment if anything didn't feel right at all is giving myself permission to walk away Guilt Free I. Guess You could say that I needed to feel that I was free to participate in the experience, not bullied into getting it done by people or circumstances. That night I thought long and hard about what could happen. The next day I worked through all the variables, old and new and processed what the day might look like. I thought about the transportation to the new lodge, but close I would wear the bus ride to the bridge getting a bridge pass at customs to Zimba's a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia paying for the jump and finally. Finally getting the gear on and everything involved in the jump itself the sights, the smells feel the wind on my skin, feeling the harness, my heart rate that thought process took the better part of an hour before falling asleep, and in our lying in bed, the following morning that mental preparation made the difference the calmness about me that morning, and thankfully Michelle did not bring up the jump. Indeed. Our understanding of my need to decide on my own terms may have made the difference.
