I'd be a great show. have long long. Now there's another acronym this another cartoon series which is very troubling. And he's all very troubling. It's disgusting that education department think from los angeles. I don't understand how the public down there can put up with these people. Well their mind controlled their their slaves. It's done there masked up and they can't speak they can hear the don. It's over people who are still adhering. They're lost their lost. That's probably a loss a lot of and we had got a letter. I think it'd be later in one of the letters that came in with a donation they guy says you. I tried to hit people in the mouth. They'd just say we're a couple of conspiracy theorists the two of us would conspiracy. Are we theorizing about. That's what i'd like to know. Well this may answer some of that. This is from a new. A website called awesome eight on some a u. m. s. u. m. dot com. They only have a just a couple of animated videos. There's no about. There's no who the hell are they but they are. Excuse me doing videos like this about our heroes. And when i say heroes who is the number one hero right now in the world when it comes to this comes to what but it comes to cove it and saving us embarrass algae. No the number one hero in the world come on. It's not foudy sh who is really making it all happen. Who is the guy that has humor. Cume the gal that idiot at the world economic forum about dr bill gates bill gates. Here's what if bill gates disappeared. Neri problem i will by many gates and solve the problem. Oh under some firstly. Bill gates is the third richest person bill gates do secured. highly respected. Billionaire will be missed by hm secondly bill and melinda gates foundation is the largest private charitable foundation worldwide. It bill gates disappeared and philanthropy. We'll take a big Thirdly bill gates co founded the giving pledge kieran billionaires pledge at least half of their wealth to philanthropy if bill gates disappeared this wonderful initiative may die down for sleep.

Bill gates disappear. Fossil fuels might make a comeback. Lastly if bill gates disappeared. Warren buffett the famous american investor will nearly miss his best friend. I mean what. What is the message here. Well i think the message is is sinister. I've i've said it on the show before. I think bill so stupid about this whole thing. He was fine with news techy roaming around but ever since the day got pied He changed his whole way of doing things so he doesn't mix anymore. Nobody ever sees him except these phonies. These high end phonies like the guy who headed economic forum and people like that. They don't turn normal. I think his life at risk. And i think this is almost a threat. I think this is a threatening Video he's said he disappears if he disappears if he disappears. I don't like it. I had a a different take on. It would came to mind for me. Was i n rand atlas shrugged too long as your tate. Instead of taking the thing is a threat and it's something somewhat sarcastic you're kagan it series that if bill gates does disappear or goes into the valley of the fog. Those people did gulf. Because we're all the other smart people went gulf then all these things that won't work anymore like this philanthropy stopped now. It's not true. I think they're making the point that if he disappears. Nothing will change. I may have actually written a column about Microsoft in general. I was at pc magazines. Maybe in the late eighties or in the nineties when they're under investigation saying what would the world be like. What if any mike microsoft wasn't here and there were no microsoft products. And i concluded it would be not much different february. Someone else would pick up the slack.

Is Astra the wrong vaccine for border workers?
"One of the big milestones we had about yesterday. Was that the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. I devices of that have arrived in australia. Which is something that we've been waiting for. We're in phase one of the role at at the moment and those are the priority people. And i thought that those people were getting the fis at shot. But now we've got the oxford esters shut here. Are they going to be getting that as well and should they be getting that as well. We're in the press release from the prime minister and the minister. They say that they will guess. That's what they say in the press release and in fact the minister himself a week or so ago a press conference said the same thing that there would be a mix of these vaccines and the trouble with. That is an an accord. Chris murray who ahead on seven thirty last monday which he was. Who's the head of the institute for health. Metrics evaluation in seattle is. That astra is the wrong vaccine. If you're looking at borders let's pull back a little bit about what you're trying to achieve and your vaccine strategy are vaccine strategy is really for a country that has lots of covid around in the middle of covid outbreak. Because you want to partake. H care quite rightly aged care. Workers quite rightly you want to get in there and then you want to protect the rest of the population you want to. Doctors nurses people who work in hospitals all that nor question and we still want to do that but if the virus gets in through the borders that's how the virus gets seen it doesn't suddenly pop aged care home or residential care or pop up in the alfred hospital in melbourne. It comes from overseas. We'll come back to the new zealand situation currently in a minute. So the total strategy in the first instance should be about the borders if we can keep our borders secure. The virus won't get in and then we've got time to immunize for safety reasons. The rest of the population and so astro is the wrong vaccine for. That is not the wrong vaccine. I'll get. I want to say up front. I will get the astro vaccine. I'll be happy to get it. It will protect you in severe disease. But it won't necessarily protect our borders. It will against probably against the uk variant. It's not going to protect almost certainly against us at african variant which only showed ten percent efficacy against. We don't know what is going to do against the brazilian variant which shows vaccine escape. And there's the california variant in american various which. Look as if they might be a bit vaccine resistant themselves and so what we should be doing is saying well astra's fine and the scottish artist suggests it's fine for preventing severe disease but that's for a country that we should be covered getting in the first place. So that's about the pfizer vaccine because it stops transmission. More effectively than the astra zeneca vaccine. I it works within three weeks. You don't have to wait. Three months for the efficacy. Second reason is that moderna there is no. There are no data drawn. Skerritt said on chronic is last week for pfizer. But it's almost identical vaccines to madeira and moderna reasonable efficacy against the south african vary not great but much better than ten percent and and it gives stronger immunity faster so for our borders we should be using pfizer and getting quick protection and we should be protecting their households. Because where's it gonna go after they get infected should he be infected. And if it's the south african is going to go to members of their households at a higher chance so their families or flatmates should be immunized with pfizer to and then the third thing that we should be doing which nobody's talking about just wondering why not but when i talk and by the way this is not necessarily me talking actually sounded out on people who know what they're talking about who aren't where willingness to publicly contradict the government. They say es actually what we should be doing and it's largely what new zealand is doing. They are immunizing. their hotel. boorda workers and their immunizing their families. They've had an outbreak which will come to in a minute. The other thing we should be doing is actually having a forward strategy. Which is if you want to get back into australia. Get immunized and we should help them so some vaccine doses could go overseas to australia. Scott send send it over to make sure the co chain right to our consulates and remember. Pfizer is not quite as temperature sensitive as people say. It's it's a problem once you've dominated you've got to get rid of it but it's not quite temperature sensitive as can last for a while so if you're an australian in london paris and new york senate to this german embassy or their physicians. They've got doctors attached and immunize streams. Get them to pay for. It is cheaper than a hotel quarantine and so you. Don't get on the plane until you've had two doses and you waited another two weeks so you're fully immunized
Fresh update on "australia" discussed on Our Auto Expert
"7. If you live in Australia, you wouldn't have seen news on one major social media feed for a few days. There's a reason for that, and it could reshape the relationship between news and social media in this country. NBC's Mike. The bus key has the story. Facebook in Australia usually looks pretty much the same as Facebook in any other country. But for a few days last week, the platform looked very different, wrong, unnecessary and heavy handed. That's what the treasurer has labeled Facebook's restriction of all news pages as the fight between the federal government and the tech giant grows. His book turned off the news for Australians last week, news organizations couldn't post to their official pages. Australian residents couldn't share links to news articles. And even if you weren't in the country, Facebook restricted you from posting stories from Australia's news outlets. It was deliberately disruptive and very much achieved its goal. That's David Pierce, editor in chief of protocol, He says. This all started with a hotly debated piece of legislation that's got a very complicated name, the news media and digital platforms mandatory bargaining code, which is a bunch of words that essentially mean The Australian government wanted to pass legislation that they hoped would reset the balance between publishers and big tech companies. Be online platforms are under scrutiny in Australia and around the world for how they handled news content, which is important because social media is where a lot of people get their news. Report last year from market research firm Roy Morgan found 38% of Australians consider Social media their main source of news. That's nearly eight million people stateside. Pew Research finds More than half of Americans get their news from social media often or sometimes this new Australian legislation would require those tech companies to pay news publishers to appear on the platforms at all. Otherwise they'd risk and even heftier payout. They would be required to make deals with publishers. And if they didn't they would be forced to go into arbitration, which means that they would sit with the publishers in the government and the government would decide how much big tech companies should have to pay publishers. This all came to a head last week when it seemed inevitable the bill would pass the law hadn't passed. But it became clear that it was going to in some ways. So Facebook said. Well, okay, here we go and shut off news on Facebook. It wasn't just news that got shut off, either. Certain Australian government organizations got caught up in the band crucial services like fire and Rescue pages. A weather forecaster and even one of Facebook's own pages were wiped from the platform temporarily. Here says the collateral damage was no accident. This is sort of a deliberate move on Facebook's part. Maura's a bargaining tactic than anything to just say like we can remove news and look how bad it's gonna be, and news publishers in the country quickly saw how much of their audience came from just Facebook traffic to Australian news outlets was down about 13%, according to analytics firm Chart beat so with pressure building from all sides. Australian Parliament made some last minute changes to the legislation. The Australian government caved Physically. So there are now new amendments in this media code that say, essentially that Facebook and other companies have more leeway over which publishers they choose to do You deal with swift instead of being forced to do deals with every publisher everywhere, And it says that the government should take into account whether Facebook and Google are good for the news business before deciding if this law even applies to them. By midweek, Facebook had begun restoring news content in Australia, worth mentioning Other tech giants, most notably Google are also on the hook for this, but Pierce says that company took a different approach. It just needs news for the search engine to work. So Googles. Only other move would've been to just leave the country entirely, which you didn't want to do so it wound up making deals. With the publishers in roughly the way that the Australian government would have wanted them to. Google has since announced to deal with News Corp. Which owns and operates a slew of newspapers and TV channels in the country. And though it appears the social media landscape is returning to some form of normalcy down under the incident did catch the attention of some other countries. That's the main reason you're hearing this story from the American Broadcasting Company. In addition to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Yes, there are two separate ABC News is Here, says the international attention is a big part of the reason Facebook acted in such a dramatic way. There are countries like Canada who said explicitly they're watching to see what happens and I think if this had gone through and it had actually brought Google and Facebook. To heal. To some extent, I think you would have seen a lot of other countries. Pick this up pretty fast. So that's why for Facebook, it was important to come out and say, Essentially, we are more powerful than.
Disney Plus Launches Star, A Streaming Outlet With More Grown-Up Fare
"Knew that star was launching february twenty third which recording this yesterday. I am in canada. So i have access to it along with australia. New zealand parts of europe in singapore. So a few countries have this new section on their disney plus app. And it's a big deal. It's a big deal for me. Because we get all the wes anderson movies. It's a big deal for some other people because they get like twenty four and richard devine from window. Central is tweeting about how much she loves. Twenty four and jack bowers back baby and all that so. I just wanted to talk about where we are in terms of streaming. I know disney or marvel disney made a big bunch of big announcement this morning On when the next set of mcu in star wars shows will be released on disney plus. And then there's all the other services right. There's hbo max there's peacock there's discovery plus there's Paramount plus. I guess if you want to call that new and all this leads to confusion for people who just want to find the show to watch. So let's start with disney. They now have ninety five million subscribers. They are doing really really well. In terms of expansion into new countries. This new star lodge is a big deal so give us the t. l. Dr if you will of why star launched now and why. It's a big deal for people outside the us lawyers. It's always the lawyers. Yeah i say why did it launch now because this is when they could finally agree on. Okay here's where the contracts in so we can pick things up. Yeah the the. The really oversimplified version is this in the united states. We have hulu and hulu has basically everything. That's not under the five pillars of disney plus in those disney star. Wars marvel pixar in national geographic. Anything outside of that. you what. You're forgetting well. I was gonna say you're forgetting the pillar of twentieth century fox and twentieth century fox which is on hulu so so virtually anything outside of those five pillars in the. Us will find on hulu yes. They're exceptions the problem is hulu is not anywhere in the rest of the world. It's a decidedly american phenomenon and so disney needed a way to get all this content to everybody else in pay by the way they get to charge a little more for it too and that became star the way they first announced it they do it. What other earnings calls last year It was a little like just weird. I didn't even fully understand it at the time and it took a little while to sink in and then the developer not developer days there investor days into simmer november december whenever that was explained. It a little better really. It's just that simple if it's if it's content you can probably find on hulu here in the us it's going to be on star everywhere else. So given that disney twentieth century fox. They bought a. They bought that from fox which was previously a shareholder in hulu disney is now the majority shareholder of hulu. Why can't they just bring hulu to the rest of the world. What is that. I mean i don't know the brand well who owns. Who is the issue there although disney now entirely owns who if i correct right they finish tying their last pieces of hulu like two years ago for for all intents and purposes and there might be somebody with a little sliver but it it's a disney joint partially owned by comcast but they're buying it slowly over the next few years right. Yeah that was an agreement that was made a couple of years ago but But that's why comcast is okay. All of our stuff is leaving hulu at this date because we will no longer have a share in it and it's all going to peacock But yeah the reason that who didn't exist in all these other countries was media streaming lauzon like entertainment and streaming laws vary by country by country. It takes a lot of money to get the rights to a decent amount of shows in places other than the us so it was a matter of hulu. Didn't really have the time or the or the money to spend on investing in trying to build up a catalog and other countries the only other country that hulu is in outside of the united states is japan. And i'm not sure how much longer is going to be there since they're probably going to roll it into star but it's disney had the clout to roll around the disney also already had rights to a lot of these things or the released they in contracts and have the rights back right so it's just easier to bring a new sub domain umbrella underneath disney plus put all the twentieth century fox content in there called star and make it a separate kind of expansion for everybody who already has disney plus. All star is disney. Plus for grownups. It's harder to always you know proper phones not anymore. But that's a. That's a good analogy. Yeah all right. So we we have star. It's got all the twentieth century fox stuff. I think it's got more than that. That's also where a lot of like. Abc television stuff ended up. It's also where a bunch of other like indie stuff that disney and fox had bought up over the years. Anything fox searchlight his ended up in there. That's why it's it's a huge a collection of content. I'm amazed that they were able to get the international rights for those together quickly. Enough for star for the international launches. So the question. I have is is disney. Plus going to host new content in star is that is this where they're going to compete with netflix and hbo for adult viewership or are they still kind of not really aiming at that audience. No actually. I think you've got that right in. It's going to get a little weird because contents can vary by country but you can see that a little bit in the in the Release lists you get you get stuff that is decidedly more adult in there and and part of that is just from the content. That's coming out of those houses in the first place. If you look at specifically fx stuff here it's called fx. Hulu it is it is. I don't know that. I'd go so far as to say it's r rated but it's pretty damn close. Fx is yeah fx is definitely not child-friendly content like ninety percent of it like isn't fx. Were archer lives yeah. Fx is is archer archer archers ethics original sort of But yeah we look at the. The new exclusive stuff like fx on hulu like depths. Was one. I loved last year. I thought it was excellent right up until the end and it went. A little off the rails. Mrs america was on there as well. I mean there's stuff that the you wouldn't even otherwise necessarily see on cable but that they're streaming in that fashion. lets them. do you know just a little more than they. otherwise would have And it's not something that you would see on disney plus so this gives them another conduit for that stuff as well. Yeah and the brand new original content is also going. It's going to vary by the audience category. 'cause like anything that's marvel or star wars is not going to be listed under the star brand period. If it belongs to one of those temples it's still going to be disney plus branded and everything starts going to have the both labels at the bottom whenever they're advertising it but it's a matter of if we're going to do original series if it's pg or if it's pg thirteen below it'll probably be disney plus branded and if it's not pg thirteen disney and pg thirteen and up will probably be star

Brittany Higgins Files Police Report on Parliament House Rape Claim
"Almost a not. Australia has been transfixed by the story of brittany hagans. The former political stuff who alleges she was raped in a minister's office inside parliament house more allegations against the same men have followed along with ongoing rounds of recriminations about how badly brittany higgins case was handled all giving rise to the clear impression that something is very wrong in parliament house on stephen smiling. And i'm angie lovelock and today on the signal the case that might just trigger some desperately needed reform women in australian politics. Okay so it's it's been a couple of weeks. Maybe you could take back to the moment when this story broke. Yes so it was the first monday of this sitting fortnight around eight o'clock the morning. This is clear armstrong. She's the national political reporter at the daily telegraph newspaper based in parliament. House in canberra. An article appeared on newstalk today written by a journalist code cement the maiden and she Published the allegations of brittany higgins question of where the parliament housing camera is a safe workplace for women is again in the headlines following allegations that a young government staff member was raped in minister's office in an interview with news dot com dot. Au higgins claimed. She felt forced to choose between reporting the assault to police or keeping her dream job. Britney alleges that she was raped by a maiocco lake in the office of now defense minister linda reynolds and The instant reaction i would say was one of complete and utter shock. This abject failure to provide a safe place of work here in parliament and in politics more. Broadly has got to come to an. I think there is. I called for problem inside this building. I've spoken about it many times. I think for far too long young. Women have copped the brunt of the culture in this place and it's time we cleaned it up often beak political scandal type stories us saved until the monday of a sitting week. Because of course you have all of the politicians in cambra unable to escape the issue which was pretty much exactly why that story was published when it was but then quite quickly became apparent that this was going to be a really huge issue. More than i think what people may be realized at that moment because of course she was also booked. This brittany was also booked to appear on the project that night and give a full kind of unfettered account of what she was alleging. And that's really how it kicked off really starting the week with the most possible drama. I think i've had since. I've been camera eighteen months. Welcome back to this special edition of the project tonight. Claims of ripe roadblocks to a police investigation and a young woman forced to choose between her career and the pursuit of justice. And it all happened right in the heart of our democracy as you said clear. It broke on the monday of the start of this session. But the details of britain higgins allegations relate to twenty nineteen. What does she say happened in. What happened back then when she first talked about it. Yeah absolutely so her. Her allegation dates back to sort of the friday. Saturday of of twenty dead of much in two thousand nineteen And brittany alleges that when she was out at a with colleagues drinking at one point The the man she alleges raped her. She says through the night he'd hurler drink. She realized she was quite drunk. Wanted to home. I notice that he was buying meal out of drinks. And i was just sort of job. Well done kind of broadly being rewarded in a weird way. So would you say you were drunk when you decided to go home obsolete. She says it was suggested that because they lived in the same direction. They should share cab when she was in that cab he said i've got to pick something up from parliament on the way i and she goes along with it ends up being signed dean to parliament. Neither of them have their passes. It's quite light after hours. They have to sign themselves. Will he. signs. Both of the men go into the office. She says she would feel well. She laid down and she alleges that she wake up with with demand on top of that i woke up mid ripe essentially. I don't know why i knew. He was almost finished. But i felt like it had been going on for a while or that. He was done. He was sweaty. I couldn't get him off of me at this point. I started crying fast. Forward to the the the start of the workweek she. She comes to work and immediately. The issue is initially traded as security breach because obviously Linda reynolds was defense industry minister at the time a lot of classified important information potentially in that office so she learns pretty quickly that the male stafa involved in these instant has already been had their employment terminated over these potential security breach and she's brought into a series of formal employment meetings to discuss. What is that time. Believed to be a security breach felt like a disciplinary meeting. It was we've been made aware of the events in that. You guys were here after hours. And you know that's not acceptable She of course then disclosed to her boss when reynolds what she alleged happened to her and that also then led her going to the afp.
Will vaccines make a difference responding to the next outbreak?
"I'm health reported teigen tyler and physician in journalists alter norman swan. It's the last corona cast of summer fridays. twenty-six yes. We are on the last current cost of summer. And i feel like i am. Maybe potentially jinxing us by talking about an outbreak. But let's talk about the scenario norman. Where if there was another outbreak in australia. Now that we've got vaccine in the country vaccine which we know is quite effective at preventing disease and infection. Would that change the way. We've been responding to outbreaks in the past year. Yes would and in fact. I think we were probably the first out. Let's talk about. It was called ring vaccination. And it's now part as far as i understand it over the national immunization or vaccinations strategy. So what you do is as you do your contact tracing you would ring-fence vaccination around the person who's got the disease and the people that have come in contact with and maybe even the people that they've come in contact with so primary contacts and secondary contacts and you would do that with the pfizer vaccine because you've got a strong response early and is only three weeks between doses so within three weeks you're fully immunized rather than the astro which might take twelve weeks to get up to that sort of level of antibody response and so a and it's a race against time so that you because the incubation periods five to eight days but what some of the research is showing is that you get an early response to particularly the pfizer vaccine. Maybe even the astro too so you get a pretty good resistance there early on so that would be a good way to respond to outbreaks prior to very large percentage of the population being covered. So when you vaccinate sometimes depending on the disease some vaccines take a couple of weeks before you get an immune response. But then there's other vaccines like rabies. Where if you get bitten and you think that there's a chance got exposed to rabies. They give you a vaccine then. Do we know what the fires a shot does. Whether it's the sort of vaccine that you can give after exposure and give you some protection while it is all about the maths which is the incubation period versus the time for the vaccine to work so smallpox that's how they controlled. Smallpox control smallpox by massimo. Certainly helped but in places such as africa they controlled it by ringfencing and controlling the spread from that and so they find they find a case a main they ring vaccinated around the person with smallpox. So that in for anybody who might have contact come in contact with that person was protected and in that case the vaccine for for the smallpox vaccine worked faster than the incubation period of smallpox. In this case it's lying ball but it's worth doing because it's likely that you would get a responsibility and you're doing two things by this ring. Fencing are ring vaccination. I should call it. You are protecting somebody against severe covid. Nineteen disease the second thing you'd be doing is trying to prevent transmission and you'd hope those two things go hand in hand is a bit of evidence from israel that they do but it's not strong
OA466: Opening Arguments Blocked in Australia?!
"As the people of georgia helped deliver both the presidency and the senate to the democrats. This past election cycle defying the perception that the state was a republican stronghold after stacey. Abrams is contentious loss. In the two thousand eighteen race for governor the effort to stop voter suppression in the state and mobilize black voters ramped up as a result. Black georgians showed up to the polls in droves this past election cycle and turned the state blew one of the activists responsible for this term is latasha brown a political strategist. Who's been working at the intersection of social justice and political empowerment for decades. Latasha is the co founder of the black voters matter fund and bv 'em capacity building institute a movement to expand voter access and build power for black americans particularly in the south. She joins us today to discuss the impact of expanding the right to vote and building a more diverse and inclusive future for the south latasha. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me molly. I'm happy to be here. Between mobilizing i. For the presidential election and then for a hugely consequential senate runoff election all in the middle of a global pandemic. I feel like is it safe to say that you had a very busy twenty twenty. How are you have. You had a chance to relax a little bit. what are you saying. It's twenty twenty. It's just been a continuum. It seems like it's been a continual. It is different so i will say i do think that we got a little breathing room and it's not as intense. I think we're starting to fine or at least i am starting to find at least somewhat of a rhythm of how to operate in these circumstances how to give it but we're still in the midst of a global pandemic. We are certainly a different kind of i think political landscape but the fight isn't over matter of fact in some ways it has intensified. You know that whenever there has been progress in this country politically. There's always been backlash and so what we're seeing right now. All across the south and particularly in places like georgia. We're seeing the state. Legislators take up these bills to actually prevent black voters disenfranchised black voters and make it difficult for voters to participate in the process. Given what we were able to accomplish. And so when i think about twenty twenty i will say yes. Twenty twenty in some ways is over but there is a continuum of work that we're doing related to that take a break. I don't know if i've been able to take a fall. Rake i will say i dig into take a breather rights i was able to take a breather and was able to take a week off and really be able to do some kind of i'm not gonna say calming down because i had to sneak in work time to but nevertheless we are in a different phase of the work and i'm really happy and proud of the work that we were able to do in twenty twenty and i tell people i don't know if we're going to remember what happened in twenty fourteen or twenty eighteen twenty. Nineteen what i know for sure. War is that all of the history books will make reference to twenty twenty so was a very significant year. But i also think that twenty twenty one is showing itself that it will also be significant year as well particularly as we're talking about what governance means. Could you tell us a little bit about how you and your organization played a role in twenty twenty. How did you play a part in the history. Books will hopefully report back so part of our organization. When i'm really proud of is while we saw a lot of the work manifest in twenty twenty. This has been a work in progress. I've worked in the region in the south around power building for the last twenty seven years of my life. I long cliff all right. Who's the other co founder of black voters matter and so there's is so interested over two and a half decades. There are different strategies that we've used and worked to try to perfect or really to help support our organizing work and so two thousand sixteen. We both felt it was the opportunity to come together and really create an organization that we could bring some of those best practices together round power building and that ultimately if we were going to break up this kind of structural racism this backwards. What we felt was the precursor for fascism in this country. That fundamentally you could not do that without literally recognizing the role that many of the legislators and the power base in the south play in protecting facilitating trump's power and some of the destruction that we see and some of the structural racism that we see in legislation so we created an organization two thousand and sixteen with the idea that we would build power and the way that we would do that is a couple of ways one that we would certainly address the issue that the south is not. I say this all the time in the south is not read is just been under invested. You know. I think we have shown we have the receipts to show that when you are able to make an investment over time when you able to build out the ecosystem and help tap into the capacity that exists. We can make a difference and so one of our first races before even georgia. That people know us is that we were one of the groups that worked in the two thousand seventeen specially us senate race which was in many ways. People thought it was just an impossible. Long and in some ways it was because in the state of alabama. That's a deeply deeply deeply conservative reactionary right state and so to be able to tap into the opportunity that existed in that year. We want it. We were able to. Our strategy and our strategy was how to connect role communities and rule organizations with urban work.
The story of Australia and the internet
"So just to recap long tawdry story of australia and the internet so rupert murdoch who is of course australian and i you know kind of coincidentally also six hundred. He is the Well he's pretty is pretty burs very close very close. Who's love journalism refusal. He started it was his first newspaper. Australian i know he is yes yes he inherited from his father. Oh okay from kevin murdoch. And then he bought sun in brittany brought. Some venture eventually ended up in a battle with with robert maxwell and one that the sun but he built his empire first austrailia and of course now the wall street journal fox He is your post. The times of london does on a media. Baron and apparently has quite a bit of clinton loss in australia. Because he yeah. He convinced the australian parliament to consider a bill which was likely by the way to be Voted on this week and pass that would essentially Establish a link tax to companies like google and facebook co published news snippets. They would not the the value. The sent to newspapers and magazines would not be a compensated. Any way it merely the fact that they're using the content some small amount of that content in their search results or in their links That the parliament said well. We're going to say you got pay for that. Google is the first to capitulate first threatening. We're gonna we're gonna retract search. We're gonna if this passes. We're going to leave australia. Apparently they didn't either didn't work or they didn't. They lost their nerve. Because shortly thereafter they made a deal for paying some unnamed some to murdoch and other publishers thought to be fairly hefty amount of money tens of millions of dollars to the benjamins tens not hundreds tents. All right well but a two platforms times ten times five years or something. It adds up. Buddy was one of those deals where there's a face-saving going on as well because oh we're going to work together we're gonna create stuff. It's going to be a joint venture that kind of thing that i've just here go away. Take some money which is what it really probably is
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
Facebook pledges to invest $1 billion in news after Australia standoff ends
"Facebook is defending its stance in australia saying that it has invested six hundred million dollars just since two thousand eighteen to support the news industry globally and it plans to spend at least a billion dollars or more over the next three years going forward quoting facebook's nick clegg the assertions repeated widely in recent days that facebook steals or takes original journalism for its own benefit always were and remain false. We neither take nor ask for the content for which we were being asked to pay a potentially exorbitant price. In fact newslink's are a small part of the experience. Most users have on facebook fewer than one post in every twenty-five five in your news feed will contain a link to a new story and many user say they would like to see even less news and political content. As tim burners lee the inventor of the world wide web warned. The australian law could make the internet as we know it unworkable. Arguing that it quote risks breaching a fundamental principle of the web by requiring payment for linking between certain content online and quote. Facebook is more than willing to partner with news. Publishers absolutely recognized quality. Journalism is at the heart of how open societies function informing and empowering citizens and holding the powerful to account.
Facebook to lift Australia news ban, pay media companies for content
"A little bit about peace in australia. The australian government has agreed to amendments to its proposed media code and facebook says that within the coming days it will no longer block australia new sources on its platform. The amendments are going to change four things about the news media and digital platforms mandatory bargaining code. That's the one that says you have to pay news publishers in australia. If your facebook or google well. It might not apply to facebook and google anymore. The first is about how a platform qualifies for the law. One of the reasons only facebook and google qualified to be subject to the code under its original. Drafting was because of the way. They measured significant bargaining power imbalance. Now with these new amendments to designate. a platform is subject to the code. The government must also consider not only the bargaining power imbalance but whether there are commercial agreements being made with news companies. Already which as we know. Google has done and now it looks like facebook is about to start doing so conceivably the deals google has made could exempt them from being subject to the code at all and facebook makes the right deals. Sounds like maybe they could be exempt from the code. The government now has to give one month notice if a platform is going to be subject to the new code that probably is to give companies time to strike deals and avoid being subject to the law. Companies will not be penalized for striking different deals with different companies. Giving them some latitude negotiate ahead of time and if a platform was subject to the code they now have two months to negotiate a deal before being forced into arbitration so kicking. That can down the road a little even at the very end facebook got to work and reached a deal with seven west media already to provide news. Facebook has a special news section to showcase news partnerships in other markets. Besides australia and it's expected to launch similar features in australia. So seven west. The i expect expect nine entertainment and news corp follow along if this is all gonna go smoothly. The legislation is expected to pass as early as wednesday after which treasurer frieden berg would begin determining which platforms if any it applies

"A bounceback from that whole australian law controversy from last week according to app annie. The australian broadcasting corporation's news app was briefly the most downloaded app on the australian app store after facebook's news ban announcement quoting the verge.

"Golden shares his thoughts on the media's response to cry kelly and other challenges to the government's handling of covid nineteen and also a little about the australian elections coming up. So let's hear from is zack is an issue. That's come up in the light of the wfan elections in march. And i wanted to deal with directly. And the trigger in a way is being craig kelly in the media now personally. I'm not a fan of craig kelly. There's a lot of things that he says. I don't agree with. And i've certainly not looked at his facebook page. Viewed his other material but mainstream journalists are being rushing to criticize him. And i listen every sunday morning to the insiders. And that's all i did. In the little section of the program devoted to him was criticized. But you know. I've never heard any of these will respected journalists ask. The simple question is what he saved. Correct barriers simply assumed. Because it's not the line promoted by the older dog's local health authorities in australia that he statements are wrong. That is not good journalism. And this attitude graphically highlighted to tomato the real problem we've had with the covert nodding response in australia as well. As in many other countries we have not been told all the facts as stated in the health australia party. Why out statement the medical response to covid. Nineteen has been directed by people trained in the pharmaceutical paradigm and the politicians and the mainstream media in this country and in many others have just unquestioningly followed. This approach and as a result countries like australia have been denied. The use of well-tested saif inexpensive proven natural medicines for both treatment and prevention and. These are things which have been used by medical doctors and train natural therapists in other countries. And they'd been used by some governments in other countries for example treatments. Now kelly mentioned a range some of which we covered in now statement but to give you some simple examples vitamin d one of the most straightforward and obvious things to give to elderly people especially those in poor health. It has been shown time and time again to reduce the severity of any infections to keep people out of icees intravenous. Vitamin c is a proven remedy to be used in viral infections. Guiding supplementation and other nutritional recommendations have been shown to be of great value and there are other forms of treatment shown in the h- the uae outside now prevention. of course. It's something that i personally have been working with since nodding eighty-five a long time. Our prime minister morrison proudly stated that his government had committed six point three billion dollars vaccines against covert however he was certainly not told that the entire population of australia could have been immunized against covid nineteen by the end of april twenty twenty for around about two hundred million dollars with zero risk of deaths or toxic side effects and with a- demonstrated effectiveness in the real world not in trials that in the real world around ninety percent. So what do we get for essex point three billion why have we expanded six billion dollars more than we needed to on experimental vaccines and untested technology. Which may be of limited effectiveness. I subscribed to lancet and on the sixth of the february this year. There was a letter. Resurgence of covid nineteen in monagas brazil. Despite high sierra prevalence in other words. They looked at people where they done. Blood tastes around. Seventy percent had antibodies for covid nineteen. But the new strain these people were not immune so even though that had an infection with covid nineteen. They were not immune to the new strain. That's over in brazil and this has got obvious consequences for vaccines of course because vaccine. July interlocken key approach the strain used in the vaccine has to be pretty much able to lock and key with strain in the community otherwise it doesn't provide protection and the twenty-three authors of the article said all the letter said this was unexpected and of concern. And if you want to follow this up yourself you can look at the lancet references. So where does the health astrid your party stand on vaccination. We've been accused. Incorrectly of being an anti vaccine party was happened at the previous election. Two thousand sixteen and we took the age to the press council of australia. And i agreed that the statement that the agent made the headline that the health australia party was an anti vaccine data. Breach two of the four principles way. Believe an informed choice and specifically if we're talking about covid nineteen if people wish to be vaccinated that should be there right and if want to immunize otherwise not immunized at all certainly not vaccinated then should also be there right without any penalty. We were the first political party to oppose the no job. No pay and no jeb. No played legislations. Because i will not scientific though not based on genuine science and we were the first political party to oppose midi mandatory medical interventions witting including the covid nineteen vaccinations. This does not mean. We're an anti vex party in any journalist or state premier or anyone else says otherwise than that. Ill informed and they are wrong. We support genuine science and that should mean an open honest transparent comprehensive public review of all options regarding topic free of the pharmaceutical filter which has been an is being applied to health matters. Australia asking reasonable questions does not mean. A person is a mindless unscientific. Anti vaccine legislation should be based on genuine science and not biased preconceptions. As is so often the case and was the case with the know jeb no paid no jeb. No play legislations to closed down. Genuine debate is the side of a captured. An important media and a failing democracy not a thriving one the we allowing this. We are allowing this to happen in australia. Which is why the healthiest dryly.
