Fresh update on "australia" discussed on America's First News

"Of course, China considers Taiwan a wayward province to be brought under its control by force. If needed. Elsewhere. Australia reporting the fewest number of new daily cases in its current virus hot spot of Melbourne since last month. But it also reported the nation's highest daily death toll since the virus outbreak began. The state of Victoria reporting 322 new infections. 19 new death on Monday with 14 of them connected to outbreaks at a An aged care facility. Elsewhere in the Asia Pacific, China's number of local transmissions fell just 14 while Hong Kong reported another 72 cases and five death here at home, of course. Negotiators still have not come up with a covert 19 relief bill, the president over the weekend signing executive orders, of course, the legality of those coming into question as the president claims he does have the power to Shift the funds this as Congress controls the purse breaks, purse strings and Democrats and questioned the legality of it, even if both sides don't come to the negotiating table, though the president's moves are not enough that, according to Chicago Fed chief Charles Evans, he told CBS another stimulus package is needed for the economy to bounce back. But First We also need to get control of the virus for months. I think you heard the Connecticut governor say that if he has to put 25% support against the president's executive order support for unemployment insurance, and that's going to cut back on other things. States have to balance their budgets. They are experiencing reduced tax revenues, and so there will be employment reductions. State and local governments account for about 10% of employment in the United States. And so that's Really another leg down. I think, uh, paycheck protection has been very useful. Extending that too. Small businesses also would be very helpful. Um, you know, in Chicago, we've had some panels. We talked to people in neighborhoods. Middle income minority neighborhoods. And according tto, the Stacy Young, the Preservation project. She's indicated that unemployment insurance has really helped low income workers pay their rent. They've been able to In those neighborhoods, small businesses or landlords, and so that keeps the money in the neighborhoods and provides better food security. I think that it's Scott Gottlieb just mentioned it also spills over to rule an excerpt. Area's, too, because they're also hard hit, so it's widespread support. Could be very beneficial. So the official unemployment rate is that 10%. What do you think the actual is and where do you think it's headed? Given what you just laid out? Um, undoubtedly, you know, it is somewhat higher. It doesn't capture all the people who'd really like to work and somehow don't fill out the surveys. Right? I think there's a percentage point discrepancy. I think it also there's the huge amount of inequality is it's experienced according to different racial Groups and so black unemployment is over 14%. Hispanic unemployment is over 12%. White unemployment is 9% so that any quality gap has persisted. And I think that providing more support the Fed has been providing accommodation. I think if we got the kind of support that we needed as quickly as possible, got control of the virus, perhaps all the people who were sent home To stay safe could be brought back by the previous employers wear down 12.9 million job since February of more, most of those could go back. We could enjoy low unemployment like we experienced it. The end of 2019 Meanwhile, late Sunday evening, President Trump offering a new twist to his plan as the state's questioned whether or not they could afford to fund the enhanced benefit of $400 that the president is calling for that over the $600 the president said states could make an application of the federal government provide all of The money. And, he says, whether or not that happens that those decisions will be made by a state by state basis. Of course, alcohol based hand sanitizers can help stop the spread of Corona virus but drinking it It has turned out to be deadly for four people in two states. Health officials say 15 adult were poisoned in Arizona and New Mexico in May and June after drinking hand sanitizer. Besides, the four who died, three had ongoing vision problems, all consumed hand sanitizers containing methanol or wood alcohol, the active ingredient that kills germs in legitimate sanitizers.

Elaine Pearson on free speech at UNSW

"Battle of free speech on Australian University campuses. Allying piece was interviewed by the Media Department at the University of new. South. Wales about the human rights implications of Hong. Kong's new national security role as. Director at Human Rights Watch and an adjunct law lecturer at the university. She expressed concern about the laws and called on the United Nations Secretary General to appoint a special envoy in Hong Kong. Well, it's hardly a very controversial stuff in democracy lock Australia Russia. Will sell you think. We'll after the article, win online the pro. Chinese Communist Party students at the university they demanded the article be removed. You see caused a fence it was hurtful to the communist government in China. The university caved in and pulled the article. Only. After an outcry in the press was the article riposted. So. How did we get to the point when one of Australia's leading universities agrees to political censorship in favor of another nation state? Elaine. Joins me now aligned welcome to between the lines. Great to have you on the program. Thanks Tom. Now, the article is back on the University of New South Wales website but with caveats that the views expressed do not represent the views of the university you happy with this outcome. Well I'm glad that they put it back up. But I am pretty disappointed at the university's response I mean I think you know the views expressed in that article of us about the human rights situation in Hong Kong and I think that shouldn't be something that should be controversial and I was a bit surprised actually that the university was so quick to distance themselves from those views and I think you know I presumed that the ferocity of the campaign by the Pro Chinese Communist Party. Students really took them by surprise. But I think now the question really is how is Going to respond to this and I, think the students you know really are looking to see what is going to be the public response and what next is the university going to do to address these shoes mind you. This is not the only incident of academic freedom being compromised. Can you tell us about some of the other cases? Yeah, Human Rights Watch has actually been documenting Chinese document lit threats to academic freedom since two thousand fifteen not just in Australia about universities all around the world we've looked cases in the US the UK Canada France and right here, and what we've seen is that there is A universities are in a tight bind because the become quite dependent on foreign students. Many of those students coming from China those students have a very different world view, many of them and when they come here. Obviously you know coming here should come with a guarantee of academic freedom and what these should be quite basic things for an Australian university education. But in reality if those students try and for instance, join protests on campus about Hong Kong or Fin Jiang they are often then reported to the Chinese consulates So they are very afraid of doing anything like that they just. Try and keep the hits down and you know you only have to look at the controversy that's happened on Q. Withdrew Pavlou and how he has been treated to see that you know we you know it's not a very impressive response from the universities to to say, Scott Free speech and academic freedom only sorts of sensitive topics like shin-jang like Hong Kong, and like human rights in China. Now you mentioned drew heavily, he was expelled from the University of Queensland in part. For, organizing, what was it very noisy pro Hong Kong protests is that right? Well, he's been suspended. So I, think you know the industry who six months suspension six month suspension so He has been you know he's had been a pretty provocative campaigner. Some of these methods may have been a bit unorthodox, but at the end of the day, look at what happened to him on on that campus I. Mean there were fistfights erupting you cue between the different student groups you had in our pro CCP's students you know supporting the Communist Party trying to tear down. The messages from? Hong, Kong democracy supporters and the only person who's actually suffered any retaliation or reprisals is is drew himself, and so we wanna see universities really safeguard academic freedom and free speech and I think that means also acting against those who are intimidating or harassing all those on campus and making the campus a safe space to express all sorts of different views. Now in your case, a lot of the outrage amongst the Chinese students was expressed and organized I understand on Chinese soil media platforms way chat. which are now apparently watched by Beijing and to what extent you concerned about those platforms like we had and I think the other one is is a waiver we Yes that's right. Yeah I mean. These were the platforms where they organize. Look if students want to express different view an opposing you that's fine I think. I'm concerned is the extent to which this campaign became one of intimidating and harassing other students who expressed different views and as I understand it were threats made that they would report people to the Chinese consulate. For expressing excuse so I think the universities actually really need to monitor. Their social media channels and not just use them as a means of advertising for you know potential new students come to the university but also make sure that those channels are being you know being up being watched not to to censor free speech. But as I said, you know where that free speech is crossing the line. I also think they just need to be clear to the students. You know what what that means that it means. Going to a means being exposed to two different views and a free to discuss and debate those issues, but you're not free to shut down. The views of others. Of course, a line universities in Australia and this is cried sacred I've become increasingly dependent on. Overseas students for their budgets. Some have more diversified student bodies but others locked. University of new, South, Wales away opposite talking about University of New South Wales because of your special case this week they heavily concentrated on the Chinese market now since covert. US W has been one of the hardest hit by travel restrictions at recently made nearly I think five hundred staff redundant. Do you think this budget anxiety affected their handling of the issue align peace and? Yes I've been I think this reliance on the revenue from foreign students is something that you know all universities are facing now and so it it is putting them in a difficult position but I think that's why actually universities need to have a unified front. I think they really need to look at their existing. Codes of conduct they don't actually deal with these issues of foreign students might come from very different oil you, and so you know what I've suggested to you, and it's still view and to many other universities in Australia is to adopt a twelve point code of conduct specifically on these issues and they need to be alive to these issues. They need to incorporate it more into the orientation when you foreign students coming to campus so that they really understand what academic freedom means with our and they need to sort of monitor and. Safeguard, for you know acts of intimidation or harassment because I'm not so worried about myself but I'm more worried about other students on campus who will see how the situation has developed and then they might be too scared to speak out on. Hong Kong will fit in the classroom or other academics who might think twice about taking a meteorological on Hong Kong because they'll be worried about the potential backlash. So you know I think universities really need to take a stand on this and you know it needs to be done. You know jointly. By by all USTRALIAN universities.

Borderline Personality Disorder: Listen with Care

"Dot Oregan. Dialectical behavior therapy dbt has become the gold standard for borderline personality disorder and studies are starting to go head to head with dbt and clinical trials. Reviewed one that fared well good. Psychiatric management in our summer issue and a new one just came out of Australia a study by Carlo Watson and colleagues from the University of Newcastle. It tested conversational therapy, which uses careful listening and the therapeutic relationship as the fulcrum of change. Over fourteen months one, hundred, sixty, two patients with borderline personality disorder were randomized dbt or conversational therapy both therapies are twice a week. Conversational involves two one on one sessions and DBT and individual in a group session both therapies were equally effective thing that matters most and borderline personality self injury. DBT had a greater effect on depression possibly because it employs more behavior activation than conversational therapy does both therapies had similar effects on core symptoms of borderline. So what is this conversational therapy that fared? Pretty decently against dbt it's sometimes called psycho dynamic interpersonal therapy. The therapist listens empathic lead to the patient reflecting back what they here with statements rather than questions and mutual I. WE language the goal is to help the patient develop a coherent narrative and a healthy sense of self and to look for Moshe Misunderstandings in the room and repair them as they happen. So the patient can learn from their relationship with the therapist and apply what they've learned to patterns in relationships in their own life. Conversational therapy was developed by psychiatrist. Robert Hudson and Russell Mir's and Mir's wrote a guide to it in two thousand twelve.

"Daria Gavrilova Dario Welcome or should I say Yeah Dasha that's about it. Thanks. Thanks for having me. I really excited to have a chat We've been in the lockdown so. As like yes. Sure. Chat. You guys probably not a lot of people to be honest right now not seeing too many people and. Also. Look at ten spicer were trying to be even Loris say. Because we are still allowed to go to training, but we're just being careful. So we create our own Babul within this bobble. There's another bubble it's just like. Crazy but that's okay. It seems like Australia's taking the quarantine current Ivar. So so so seriously because you were out of lockdown on your back in lockdown yet because our K. went up again. So they're probably GONNA keep going up for the loss while before gone back down but. Yet, wherein stage three right now is Toria somewhat every state. So even though you've been quarantined and all that I mean, have you actually stop training at all during this whole lockdown quarantine thing or have you not really been able to train as much? The first lockdown were lucky. We got all the gym equipment and. Hope back home and I just did my own workouts but I had like everything I had barbells ahead. You know all the heavy stuff. The chain I had the what black. Though I was able to train almost as normal, and we're allowed to go outside and do sessions outside and then yet. We're allowed to get back on the tennis court on a few weeks later. So that was the case and now. With tennis they restrictions noticed straight. So we're able to still come to the tennis and train. What's your thoughts though in when you will play a tournament because I know we have a scheduled tentatively starting from August onward where do you plan to go if anywhere? Well. I don't know to be on the I still have no idea I think many people due to illness. It's like the two options either starting in the in America or go straight to Europe. But I haven't decided. Let's talk about if. Everything everything still up in the air like ribs the. If it's all happening or not. So I'll just decide as light as possible. I think the one thing that I've taken from this whole quarantine whether or not the WTO starting again is just we know nothing that's all I know is that we know nothing there's nothing that's concrete. There's nothing written in stone at the moment though are. Able to come to the US like if you were to leave tomorrow for tournament, if there was a tournament, Mar, would you be able to head allows way? I'll will have to have an exemption and how hard is that to get well, we apply for an exemption to go overseas So we I think we're allowed to come see West but the de Straton government doesn't really want us to travel. So we need to have an exemption and we all applied for it and we still haven't had the answer but well, for example, arena already that shit got. An exemption, a world's intense. So quarantine what have you been up to staying sane I know not just training surely there's been a lot of new hobbies fun things to get into out of TIKTOK FU talks. I don't dance take talks 'cause I can't but I just. Make Fun of myself in posted anyway because it looks hilarious what else Well, I'm always been a bit like artsy artsy. I.

Microsoft Said to Be in Talks to Buy TikTok, as Trump Weighs Curtailing App

"President Trump has given Microsoft until September fifteenth to negotiate a deal to buy a piece of Tiktok that's a step back from trump's threat on Friday that he would ban the popular Chinese video APP, which he calls a national security risk. Let's bring in Greg Remai- Otas he's an editor at Reuters and was one of the reporters who broke the story and Greg Microsoft said in a statement that it's committed to acquiring tick tock but there are a few things that they I need to work out what are some of the main concerns over the next few weeks? So, they need to convince US national security officials that TIKTOK will not offer any backdoor to China's government were to be separated from its current owner by dance and be owned by Microsoft. All of TIKTOK data on American users is already stored in the United States, but because talks platform. It's algorithms is code are shared by other by dance APPs US officials need to be convinced that if the word to be a sale to. Microsoft. By then sworn, be left holding the keys and still have access to the APP let's break down just a little bit. So talks parent company, which is a Chinese company has taken steps in the past to try to appease US regulators on this front. But president trump still says it's a national security risk just remind US briefly how we got here. So we wrote a sexually broke news last year the Committee on foreign investment in the United States had opened an investigation into Tiktok. This is a US government panel, the scrutinises deals for potential national security risks. But of course what has happened since then is that relations between the United States and China have deteriorated. The president told reporters less last week that she was sexually looking at banning tiktok. But we reported yesterday that he will now allow this process to run, and if process will basically give forty five days for Microsoft and bind them to see the negotiate a deal that can you know a piece US national security officials So, this Microsoft deal would involve them buying tick. Tock Service here Canada Australia and new. Zealand so does that mean that this parent company would still operate the service in the rest of the world? How exactly what that work? That's the key question show. We understand that as far as those countries are concerned, Microsoft would be taking over but like the the. will be in the detail because this is being don show by will have no access no backdoor TIKTOK and to be fair that's probably why you show the president and some of his in the White House not being able to make up their minds because it's been like a very big question mark can you know that the -nology of Tiktok really be taken away from by them in a way that satisfies US concerns. Microsoft owns linked in, but otherwise, it isn't really well known as a social media space. How big of a deal would this acquisition of Tiktok for Microsoft I mean would then put it in the same space to compete more directly with the facebooks in the snapchat. So the world absolutely would be transformative and you may have noticed at the congressional hearings last week when. Four big technology company CEOS attracted the ire of lawmakers Republican, and Democrat Microsoft wasn't there. Beyond Lincoln Microsoft mainly focuses on. Business Software and and this you know and map that both hammer million. Users in the United States, would you know give Microsoft one of you the social media industries, gems, and? Turn them into. A very big player she'll be. To see how the president navigates the politics of this deal with his own base menu supporters are suspicious of big technology companies. They perceive any inherent bias against conservatives, social media, and at the same time you probably over the weaker many of his you know Republican supporters, Lindsey Graham, particular tweeting, making statements, encouraging the president to clinch the deal with Microsoft show. You be very interested to see how trump navigator this. Yeah, I mean some of the speculation is that trump backed off of earlier threats because it would alienate the party's younger users ahead of the election do you think that this deal will actually happen? The big unknown here is this technology issues we discussed this you sure absolute seperation back of suddenly has the cash to pay for this. The question is, can a deal be put together? That appeases the hawks in DC. That's Greg Room Yoda's editor of corporate finance in Deals at Reuters Greg. Thank you. Thank you.

Mike Pompeo has consistently voiced concerns about the APPS ties to the Chinese government back in July he lumped Tiktok in with wall way in terms of national security. We are now evaluating each instance where we believe that US citizens data that they have on their phones or in their system or in their healthcare records. We want to make sure that the Chinese Communist Party doesn't have a way to easily access that president trump this weekend suggested banning the APP in the US. We're looking at Tick Tock we may be banning talk. We may be doing some other things that are a couple of options. And Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has confirmed that the department's Committee on foreign. In. The US is reviewing tiktok citing. National. Security concerns, he spoke to ABC over the weekend. I do chair Syfy, which is the committee on Foreign Investment on the United States I've said publicly that it's under review I will say publicly that the entire committee agrees that Tiktok cannot stay in the current format exit risks sending back information on a hundred million Americans. Amid, Washington's focus on national security Microsoft announced that it made by tick tock or at least part of it.

Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong

"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.

"Rubia Kamara is the chef and co owner of an cream shop called Ruby scoops, which is planning on opening up in a new location in Richmond Virginia here, the United States later this year. Rabiu is our guest for this episode and she says, she decided to make a career in ice cream when she started to think about being an adult who needed to have a job and how to have a job that feels like fun at least most of the time I realized that I was GonNa say signed working and I wanted to do some that enjoyed doing. So I went to culinary school and we learned how to make ice cream like in a machine, their small machine but I really enjoyed the process and the different things you could add to it and fell in love with it and just decided. That if I was GonNa do something for myself long-term. I wanted to be ice cream because I from my childhood even now to adult Abulat fond memories that include ice cream and I wanted to be a part of that for families and friends in people that I know and don't know into you know old a special place in their heart through. What makes your ice cream special will I I? It's delicious Zeiss Grievous but we make it all by hand. So it's all small batch make more than like four gallons at a time because of the machine and have. We do Vegetarian Gluten Free Vegan. We're working on some sugar free. So we're doing our best to make sure that we can accommodate everybody's lifestyles, dietary restrictions and slipped Reggie with cool Sitri and then ownership wise. We are black women and we're on what kind of edge does that give you that another shot might not have for us it's very important that we make people feel. Safe and inclusive and accepted because the things that we've both had issues with. Throughout our own lives, we want everybody to be able to come into the shop. We matter what they look like at identify as who they you know whatever they're going through we want them to feel safe to come and enjoy. Ice Cream cookie with themselves with whomever they desire and. Feel like that space is there's Well. That's cool. Because everybody should be able to enjoy ice cream. Absolutely. Absolutely. That's exactly. It's also the way a lot of our young listeners field. So let's hear some of your questions. Hello I'M CHARLOTTE I'll leave in Australia Newcastle and Fluffy so deny. To, learn how to Mike US Cream. I names ULA years old from Nova Scotia Canada, and I'm wondering how does not turn into ice cream? Hi May name is May and flavors up, and my question is holidays came made ice cream sounds like it's just cold cream, but there's a little more to it. So what is ice cream? So ice cream is defined as a frozen dairy dessert. That basically has air like incorporated into it while it's freezing because while the air. So the basis of it is usually heavy cream milk. Sometimes I'd guilt not always use sugar and then whatever your flavorings are gonna be. So we basically he'd all those things up together bring him to a point where all of our ron greedier become safe to eat. Whole it down and then. Put it into machine which we refer to as a batch freeze there that we would turn on as a cylinder on inside so that ice cream is spinning as getting cold. So while we incorporate air that ice cream, if you will you get basically this fluffy creamy product because when you mix. Hold an air milk. You get that texture that we all know as ice cream if it didn't spin around if you didn't get the air into it, would it just be like a block of ice to ascend? So does going to save. You don't put the air intuit things that we also know popsicles if you've ever had like a fudgesicle which is the icy but still cold that is what would happen if you didn't pump that air into it so that if you wanNA sound fancy, we referred to that freezing as. Simply. Frozen. So quietly frozen basically freezes. In like a period of inactivity.

Church, which is the pygmies zero octopus, their native to Nicaragua very small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than a table grape. The work here involves everything from the very latest high tech gene editing tools to a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor the rocks are used to make habitats in the tanks and two way down the lids. So octopus are notorious for being able to escape out of their enclosures. These critters have sophisticated brains that look nothing like our own. They can solve puzzles, change their skin color in a flash and travel using jet propulsion Josh. Rosenthal is a researcher at the Marine Biological Laboratory. He says, these animals evolved completely independently from us, their relatives or. Things like clams in this provides an opportunity to compare them with us and see what elements are in common and what elements or you need. The problem is there's been no way to modify their genes and being able to do that is really important. Most lab biologists study just a few species like mice and fruit flies because the gene editing technologies for them have been all worked out. This makes it easy to study genes role in behavior, disease and treatments, but none of that was available for cephalopods. So Rosenthal and his colleagues have been building those tools I using a squid that lives in the waters around woods hole a researcher named Karen Crawford had figured out how to fertilize. Its eggs in the lab. So the team did that and then injected gene altering materials it wasn't easy. The fertilized egg is surrounded by a tough almost rubbery coating for months we have needles break. We couldn't figure out how they get it, but they finally did it and turned off a pigmentation gene that normally makes small dark spots on the squids skin. Those spots are missing on the altered baby squid pigment genes are easy because you can see them. Right. You can see if it's working as things develop Kerry Alberton is a member of the research team she says for her this is a game changer. This is something that honestly if you ask me five years ago if we'd. Be Able to do I would have just giggled and said I dream of it but you know I didn't think it would be possible and yet here we are other Squid Biologists or equally thrilled Sarah McNulty's with the University of Connecticut. She says, it's incredibly impressive that they've gotten this to work. This was like a huge advancement for staff upon researchers all over the wrong. We should all be pop bottles of Champagne. This is amazing. She says this particular squid can't live long term a lab it just gets too big but she says it's proof of what's possible and the researchers are already working with smaller creatures. They haven't those tanks to alter genes and them to Nell Greenfieldboyce NPR news.

Thank you for that. We did I grow up now this this will take me out of my tribal in grew up in Oakland. I was a child of parents and grandparents who had been part of the Ibanez Ation Price Ace that occurred during the fifties and sixties so the government. Made some economic policy decisions, which made that many of my relations hedge leave tribal areas to find week. I'm a child of those. Generations brought up in Oakland end lift or conceivable years to Levin L appliances in new. Zealand as well which I think was a very positive thing to do to get out of a US associate like this. And experienced the region's. Pivotal years because they caused mess cultural disconnection. And, they enabled the government to grab huge tracts of land, making it impossible for many Erie tune in my family and my upbringing. was part of the impact where we could go what we call home to travel lanes, but we no longer had lanes the so we couldn't retuned to love.

But we were really fortunate as well because my father and grandmother who lived close by maintained connections very strongly with a tribal areas, so we travel back and forth as whichever back and forth Tortuga liens constantly I remember vividly. It would take us more than twelve hours driving to get what is now about a five hour drive. And the roads were pretty rough, but it gave me a really sound connection to my roots, and we didn't become strangest to tribal land and to our entities. So in that respect. We were very fortunate. That wasn't the case for many of my relations who? Lived and different eras around the country, and many moved over to Australia and been have been unable to reconnect. Yes so, that's that's that Christian. Beautiful and sorry sounds like it was a real priority and our real conscious choice feel family that, even though they might have been physically moving away from these tribal lands that really wanted to maintain that connection, and as a what astray leading girl I'm really love to hear more about like what that looks like in your family life. It looks different now than it did when I was a child so when I was a child, I remember my my father, my my parents and his relations. Attending what will we code land meetings and Oakland so we're in a very politically charged time, so they were very conscious of the. Bureaucratic. Colson wheels that had been put in place to land off them. And they had to fight a beer credit in cool system in order to hold on to name, so there were several land to meetings are record as a child where people would get together and figure out how they were going to respond to a very complicated legal system that was biased against them.

To what was being seed in also hearing? On natives because? Switching, languages constantly throughout the conversation which I said do it in a book.

"Those two exercises cups in in two thousand six and sustain in two thousand and eight what specifically was trialed. And what did what did the bureaucrats that you've spoken to say? They learned that you needed to be improved needed to be addressed so that it started was as prepared as it could be for for a pandemic. So comes in the the first one in two thousand and six eight actually hired actors to pretend to be people coming off. An international flight in that slot ended up being. You know a plague ship so to speak with people on board who were ill so they i. They manage pretended to manage this of people and then the scenario extended suggesting that the illness had been moved into the community and there was community transmission so very similar. Frankly they helped me right. Yeah exactly what happened? This time slightly. Different Disease. Influenza pandemic influenza Very similar but what they found as you'd expect in an exercise like this is. I found issues that needed to be addressed to who had responsibility for for particular areas. You know making sure ahead enough. Ppa a whole bunch of little things that needed to be done. Which is why that into thousand night when they ran sustain that was much more bounce. The National Response Of typically also in fact about how to kind of manage the spread through the community in fact one of the people who was involved in assisting in two thousand night. I is a pandemic planner associate. Professor Adam Cameras Scoff at the Sydney. Now he's a city university back then. He worked for the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and he more than anyone explained to me. Just him potent these exercises. Yes other the role of the exercises throughout that period was really to test the planning that had been put in place at that point in time and as a result of that to try and then identify whether or not they were any gaps or weaknesses in. How Australia would respond to a plan. So there really were a culmination of a lot of planning and preparation that going on for a number of us and then we saw the actual exercises themselves which revealed further information to help us prepare for the event of a widespread panic but two thousand and six thousand eight the period when before that went Tony. Abbott was the health minister in the Howard government. What happened after this period of time? How did we sort of dropped the ball? It seems yeah. Will I think Adam Cameras Scott has a very good.

"The time we're recording this stras death toll from covered nineteen stands at seventy one and we're expected to pass seven thousand confirmed cases by the weekend or early next and compared to most countries. Australia's doing pretty well at containing the spread or at least that story that's being told for now but some people who've worked at the highest levels of Australia's health system argue. Something's could have gone even better. I mean Ruby. Princess Springs to mind. Some of those people have been speaking with our colleague. Abc Investigative Journalist Dylan and Dylan. Says the story really starts even further back than these drills with bird-flu in the light. Ninety S is kind of the way the world suddenly began to think about pandemics again And that's broadly because in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven. There was an outbreak of flu in Hong Kong. And some people a small number but some people died so the the World Health Organization the W white showed after that two years later in nineteen ninety nine created some guidelines pandemic guidelines and Also of course soon after that in two thousand and three was the size APP right now. That's a grunted viruses will And that caused this are particularly in east and Southeast Asia. Size really got people thinking about it and strata where we are part of Asia a lot of these countries. We have lots of people coming and going from these countries so we. We started thinking about this very seriously. I'm out in health minister. Tony Abbott took it quite seriously and we over a period in the early two thousands through to the late two thousands we. I created a stride is first pandemic plan for influenza. That was the Australian Health. Management plans for pandemic influenza knows the ampy that was created in two thousand six and then later that year we Australia ran and stride. You're on made everyone So this is the Commonwealth states even down to the lowest levels of government. We ran a huge exodus called. Come with Satyam precisely to take what we can david logical evidence instead so we're looking for H.

The outbreak of an influenza pandemic Kind of you and then spread through the so well what the same as code ninety s size to. It was very similar. You know the same kind of things that will say the last few weeks people wearing masks concerns about people coming in on planes shot against schools etc. They really bring that exercise in two thousand and six and then what happened was some of the things.

"Hello Everybody Nice that. You're watching to be as w a Buddhist Society of Western Australia as Youtube Channel and makes me really happy to know that people are watching Buddhist teachings here on the Youtube where so much stuff that you could be watching you chose to watch to some trauma and just any thinking of that. All these people watching these videos and makes me really happy. So thank you for joining us. My name is junior and I am currently staying here in Albany in little place together with another among Moto you may have seen yesterday on the on the on the channel and we are living here together peacefully and doing meditation and the Buddha Society of Western Australia. He's trying to set up a new place here for amongst to live and practice and I moved here about three weeks ago. I came here and one of the people drove me here in the car. They asked me federal. Are you not afraid of the corona virus and I said and my immediate response? I said No. I'm not afraid because the mind cannot get corona virus only two body can get corona violence because as monks and also as bookish today people and also you don't have to be booed as we develop our minds and find a happy place where we can dwell inside. We got your meditation so meditation. There's no need to be afraid of anything so today I will give you a little short talk. Maybe ten minutes. We'll see we'll see how it goes and then after that we will do a thirty minute meditation about thirty minutes together and I'm a safe. He was a bit weird. I'm just talking to this camera. Motives sitting behind it but Let's see so just Just stopped around move at government of Western Australia where we are. They started closing down to regions between between cities. So then I now. I can't easily move back to the honesty anymore where I live and it just thinking. Now I'm SORTA stuck here and also Western Australia itself also closed borders around. You stuck there as well and I was planning to visit my parents in in amongst time from now. I haven't seen them for years and I was looking forward to seeing them again and now that can't happen property so I felt a bit. Yeah I felt sort of. I couldn't do what I want it so I felt a bit stuck in a corner and I realized as many people now on the on the in the world who are stuck. They're stuck maybe in a country where they don't want to be because of all the measures against Corona virus a maybe stuck inside their house in quarantine stock in a city and that sounds really negative to be stuck but I realized that many good meditations. I had an insights where all when I was stuck. So when you're stuck as as a good opportunity to let go because why because when you're stuck you can't go anywhere you can't go left you can't go ride conjure up down so there's only one thing to do was just let go and make peace with the situation. So that's why I think it's a beautiful thing now in the world. All the people are stuck in their houses because it gives us a great opportunity to make peace and let go of all the things that are outside and worrying us and Israel minded me of the little quote by Christian monkey called the Desert Fathers. And he said stay in your cell and your cell will teach you everything and the cell is like an old Christian word for for meditation or prayer room for the Christian monks and I think what this Trying to say was if you set limits you stay inside your room you will have to learn to live with that and then to let go of everything that is outside of that and and then you will. That will teach you everything that you need to know and also reminds me a little story. I don't know where this comes from our wedding as somebody thought it before but I just made it up but this is the story of the the postman and the angry dog postman comes to deliver a message to a letter to somebody's house. I mean just walks up the house. No worries opens up the gate and outcomes this angry dog jumping at one of these big rottweilers. You know with these. We call her on with all these spikes and he chased after the postmenopausal and got scared and run. Run Away and run through. All the streets left the ride run everywhere. He true true is packages at the dog. Trying to get rid of the dog but the dog kept chasing after him and deposed still come running and he was just just quick enough to keep away from the dog. The dog he never never lost any distance between him and the dog but then he took a turn and what was there. He turned into a dead way in the back of the alley. That was a big wall to the right of him. That was a big wall to the left of him. A big wall below him solid concrete and he couldn't climb up. You couldn't go left. It couldn't go right. He couldn't go anywhere so he turned around. And face the dog and the Dog Game Adam and jock dog jumped on and the dead moment to postmen. He'd let go. There was nothing he could do. He was GONNA be bitten by the dog all destroying the packages. All the running had no use so he let go. Let me be bitten by the dog victim in the face and ran off and that story that story the postman is a good Buddhist. It's like a Buddha and the dog is similarly for suffering suffering chases us around and we tried to get rid of it. We tried to run away from it. We throw stuff at it rerun. Someday we'll get stuck and we have to face the reality and then all we can do that. Go so this letting go also is what we do in meditation to try and find peace and accept our our lives as they are and the situations we are in. Now we're stuck inside quarantine or not and and sometimes your mind can do really funny things going stuck in a situation and I remember one time I was living at a layperson and in the Netherlands where I'm from and we did a lot of Buddhist friends did what is called Meditation Flesh Mall. Don't know if you know what a flash mob is but it's not a people come together and do something unexpected in a public place so we were doing. We went to the biggest train station in the Netherlands which is in the city of lot of train stations. All the train network from the Netherlands. They all come together in that city. It's really busy station. And there's all these messages all the time of train delays people running around and shops and bill boys and everything and we decided to do meditation there too. So people about these. So unexpected group. Meditation in the middle of the hall and this was to be about twenty minutes. I think I can't remember exactly what I do. Remember getting down there when we started the group meditation on the hard concrete. All the loud messages going around and I thought how this is. GonNa be worse meditation ever. I can't sit here. I don't have a cushion. It's hard floor and it's allowed. How can meditate here so when the leader off of US talk thinking? What's called Sunday when he rung a bell? I come meditate here. Why am I even try? I don't have to try. I like oh I'm going to happen. Is A mind go really peaceful? Because I wasn't trying to do anything and it got so piece. I didn't couldn't even feel my body anymore. All I noticed us just happy. Mind far off in the distance. I heard took very far corner of the hall. I could hear something. So meditated for twenty minutes like that and just to keep it a bit short for the talk. I went back home and I looked up video that they made of it. And what was the song that I could hear? Very far away was actually a lady on High Hughes who rent right in front of me so she was the right could be just an arm's length away so that's the kind of thing that your mind can do. If you let go hang out of your minds can do as well. When you let go meditation you can get these beautiful piece and withdraw from the world so hope that gives you song. Spirit or some thoughts to reflect upon. So let's do some meditation together and we have to stop the video hair. Resume it again because the camera can only record thirty minutes. So I'll see you opted reset.

I'm not quite sure where from here when I mean anyway he just lets people know that this is Easter today. The Good Friday I. I've Easter so I'm sure that somehow other we'll find a use for these these eggs and money as well so anyway. We'll see how we can make the best use of those but fatty announcements because in our code lockdown time in purse and a hold of Western Australia. It means I'm speaking to just about an empty room to Sony to people who are working here and looking after the place so it can't be a public talk but nevertheless beautiful time over here in Western Australia. Great time to be a monk because I have more time to be quiet. So wartime to have seclusion more time to have social isolation which to me is a one who otherwise. It's like big on retreat. But anyway there's still a few pieces of business done as well and of course this last week. When I was here I was actually saying that Certainly putting the honesty is a enough food is coming to a monastery now and a few donations coming in now through most with pay pal account which is amazing. So thank you and all the mayors to you're giving nurse donations and of course very soon. They will pay for the Thai community and Community Burmese community actually all of the southeast and South Asian Community. We're having the Songkran it's a new year. Unfortunately we're not allowed to celebrate because that'd be breaking the rules so I would've taffy parties to do something good while you're at home something. Which is I'm generous forgiving at that particular time that saw on Monday. Thirty th of April fourteenth and fifteenth. Please we don't need a whole lot of people coming to our monasteries because I'll be breaking the law and you're not just breaking the law it will show. The put is in Australia in the world and not really doing their part to help solve the problems of this pandemic. So it's great to celebrate those occasions but set a pay to that home author coming to monasteries. Okay so now we can do it if a bit of meditation and again if you'd like to get yourself in meditation posture and just to see just how peaceful that rabbit is sitting next to me. It has a move since I came here. That's what we'd call physical tranquility so anyway see what we can do many years ago. Somebody made a lifelike statue. Statue is like a model adventure and it was so convincing. They put him on Sanchis. Usual seat and people will come there about three times and they start meditating and I said wow tha- Jansher so peacefully he doesn't even move. I didn't realize it wasn't just model very funny. When people found out that it was just an image of him rather than seeing real things move real. Things move. Because that's how we get comfortable but once we are comfortable let go of much of the movement we can inclined towards stillness. So what's what's in the suit. As they call Kai Assadi and data tranquility of the body and tranquility of the mind so to get the tranquility the body first of all kosher is place with your eyes closed being attention to your physical body sitting here. I don't know where here is for you because as talks go all over the world. Wherever here happens to be your mind also come see recover into your body and you feel it's X. box and back feel and you inclined towards comforting those parts of your body you start by asking simple question thanks.

I'm kind enough to my body to make that. Adjustment my buddy again especially my legs. Thanks. Are you comfortable so anything else you need now.

So I think we're GONNA end here because honestly it's innately like listening to this podcast you're going to hear these types of conversations again because that's just it is what we're talking about. It's the most important issue of of our time so we have the video about the Australian fires. We're going to continue to make more videos about this topic and sort of navigate this conversation with you so let us know what you think using hash takes. podcast talked to us about climate. Change in general. How you talk to people about it your opinions on it? What this conversation is maybe sparked for you because it is a complex conversation in no way? Do I think I have the answers and just sort of like piecing things together from what I've read and just trying to think about this as much as possible. Yeah I agree. Let us know I'm interested in. How people's in especially in different countries perceive higher governments receive it? How it's even these fires as a specific example? How is that viewed from a global perspective because obviously Canadians made me feel somewhat connected to Australians? Oh my gosh remember. We went to Australia. I I and I was so like you fly so so far. Twenty hours of ten years ago we flew to L. A.. And then you find so far a lot of diesel fuel you got off the plane and you're like I'm in Canada handed about warm. I was so frustrated. I fly this four. I want this. I want some sort of culture shock. But they're different but yeah very similar architecture of the Honda Hondas and my Toronto reared experience so I do think we are connected to Australia. Similar like sort of like recent history. Uh well thank you guys for eliciting as always and we will talk to you next week for another podcast say..

"It's smaller Mahler than the state of California so in order for our country to have like movement and really get behind politicians or get behind things. It's it is easier because the numbers are smaller. You hear about countries like Sweden Norway being progressive. There's not nearly as many people there so it's easier to sort of have grassroots movements. Really take over. I think one thing that America America as an outsider is important to talk about is it is so huge not only geographically but yeah like three hundred four hundred million people all and there's cetera largest country in the world. Sometimes we look at China and India and go. They're huge. They have a billion people. But then you go wait. America's not that far behind that there's so many people so many different cultural backgrounds so much intertwined into American culture that makes people have such different opinions and all of Canada's provinces offenses are run by the federal government in a way where the federal government has a lot more power than in America in America. Every time go a different state. It's like you're entering a different country. And so so when they all come together to vote or like make a decision as a country. It's really challenging because what's happening in. Oklahoma is so different than what's happening in California but they're all falling under the umbrella of Americans and I think that is like a big issue whereas in Australia again it's a smaller population New Zealand. Like I really think that Australia can figure out what their small population away to really hopefully curb desk and work together. And I think this will be the energy that they need to do it because it is so oh devastating it is so thinking about Canada. It's interesting because I do think Canadians. Australians similar We define ourselves as Canadians. I don't really really define myself as an Ontario in I mean in some ways I'm sure people look Alberta look at BC and look at Newfoundland say like their distinct which they are of course is different. Cultural backgrounds. Sounds interesting geographic. Whatever but as a Canadian I'm Canadian whereas I think in America you often? If you're asked where you're from you say your state I need Americans. They said our tidiane I'm like where's that I don't have any idea that is. I'm assuming it's America's No one else in the world have you ever are traveling leading. People will be like. Oh I'm from Canada. I'm from Belgium. Then they'll be like I'm from Chicago one other thing. I was thinking about these fires because part of me every now now and then. It's unfortunate to see that certain animals become poster animals right so we we see polar bears. We see panda bears. We see Koalas. Yeah and they're often not the biggest problem like some of them are but they're using the biggest problem or there may not be the most threat so like what. I'm trying to say the most threat to them. They may not be at. How do I say this does not like on the verge of extinction necessarily compared to other animals? That might be ugly that we don't get to see little marsupial the talks but then at times like like this. I'm like no use the qualas. 'cause in proportion okay. A billion animals have died but they said like when it was five hundred billion five hundred million had died this at eight thousand Kuala died. That's a way different number like eight thousand qualities. Nothing compared to five hundred million but those videos have made exactly i. This is very interesting because it does make me think about how when we talk about climate change and we do research about climate change. Now it's true something like a bill saying a billion animals died. It's like your brain can't grasp a can't have an emotional reaction to that. That's what we need to do is create emotional schnorr reactions in people to make a change. That's just how revolved animals. We don't take in literally. The scientific part of your brain. Gene is not linked to the emotional part of your brain whereas the emotional part of your brain which actually leads to change is more linked to storytelling. It's linked to we all know what it's linked to that experience experience you have with other people. Those qualities are an amazing example of an emotion. You probably felt that led to you wanting to make a change so is much easier to care Arab out. Some sort of seems a little more human like Ben an aunt. Say if you're like a one hundred million aunt died and even if you saw them it's probably not the same impact because Koalas have is. That seemed like human like they have. Yeah they remind like watching them. It's like there's qualities that remind me of Ernie Dog. Yeah but there is but there is something something to be said. I think about a focus that happened for too long on polar bears with climate change. I do think that like Greenpeace on a lot of these places decided to focus on that for that reason they probably did the research. We did. Not Okay this emotional reaction is really important and I. I do think that at a certain point it got to we. Have you have to be really careful. Because if you do focus too much on one thing a lot of other the nuance aunts and the complexity of all these issues can get lost. And you couldn't then maybe give ammunition to the other side in a sense. You know what does I can't. I don't know what you mean by ammunition but it does leans too heavily into one simple explanation when this is actually really complex and there's so many different species that are human in line are using human lives and like I just have read like two particular cases where people talked about the focus on polar bears taking away from the fact the complexity of the issue and sort of making people go. Oh Save the polar bears like Roy is like what does that even sort of like mean and because it is interesting. You're right like planet earth that ends with a polar bear swimming into oblivion and the middle of the ocean. It's impactful like you see it that that narrative they've for climate change has existed for about ten years. And so I just think this Koala thing is important for right now. Such a conversation out is is important for right now but we also have to figure like we can't just fully rely on it and make sure that we are always one step ahead of the the negative criticism or are people who are denying climate. Change right and it's so much more than just just hearing stories so I was listening to a hidden brain podcast about habits. The other day and one thing that stood out to me was that they were talking about smoking habits and how much money. They've put in different countries into educational programs or even like eating vegetables. These kind of things like and realizing that what worked most to stop people from smoking wasn't educating people wasn't putting pictures on a cigarette cigarette packs to show you how bad it was for you. Teaching people how bad it was didn't change it. What made it more effective was banning it from inside not allowing you to smoke in certain L.? Making it making me literally have to walk ten feet this. This is why I'm so scared for climate change because climate change. It's it's inconvenient. And how do we have to think about that because if you think about the smoking example. Yeah if people are don't care about their own health and I'm not trying to like shade smokers too hard here. I just mean if if the risk of your own mortality death isn't enough to change people and make them stop smoking. Why would the risk of nature and animals and other humans on this planet Senate do it? Yeah so I think we need to start. Of course we should be educating is impactful especially if people who already care about it of course these this image is GonNa make a difference but will it change. I don't know I think what needs to happen is how do we build systems that allow us to make it. Incan what is more inconvenient. Like how do we stop doing things. That are contributing to climate change. So whether that's meat consumption. How do we make it less convenient how we make it more? Well that's that's why this sort of trend of fast food is like really great at least happening. Canada like these DASU. Oh beyond me. Burgers is making it convenient and tasty for you eat something a meat alternative people. Oh I think WanNa feel good about it if it's easy and and we've talked about this before net flex was provided people away to pay for things and not illegally stream in the same way it was more more convenient. It was the right price it was convenient. You didn't have to go through all these loops to pay for cable. That cost one hundred dollars so there are now you're saying people will download last which yeah that's what they said like the Netflix streaming companies have actually created a much different system that existed before that finally people go okay. You know what. I'm willing to pay ten dollars a month for all this contest. So carbon tax is a good example of of sort of doing this from a political to a company standpoint like doctors important. It's trying to make it inconvenient. The economic inconvenience. That was another thing for cigarettes. Tax On cigarettes actually also decreased people's likelihood of smoking. So it's why I think a lot of people when having these conversations about climate climate change it's like we talk about obviously. There's things that we can do in our personal lives but we do know that it's up to politicians incorporations because if you think about about that if we WANNA make inconvenient for people to say by red meat that's a challenge economically it's like okay. Then then they're going to have to. It'd be some sort of regulation where we tax yes. There's a lot of layers to those industries in people who work in them and it just being complicated yes and fast. It's like every we sort of like you hear about lobbying from corporations because they don't they wanNA continue profits for their shareholders and a lot of the green new deal and moving forward about how we change. Climate change is about the government having more power over corporations to do things like that to make things inconvenient for the consumer and for the company to potentially Ashley make less money for the good of the planet. I think that is what we need to have happened with. My research is that we need something like the green new deal which involves regulation and so I think that is interesting because it relates to that cigarette thing we need to make it inconvenient for people to consume and purchase certain things and I think the scary part is that that's GonNa come with a potential shift an economics which I think is. That's where we're at right now in history is how is that not going to play out and you think that I can't tell if you think that do I think what do you think that what I'm saying like science. Yeah I think it's I. I think it's both I think we have to look too big institutions and corporations and governments in the ways that they're regulated as well as our personal actions because our personal actions while maybe I'm like minimal on the side of how things get done as a society. We decide which things were interested in which by I know. It's a complex relationship because obviously not everyone. Everyone can afford to choose more sustainable environmentally friendly thing and not and sometimes it's so confusing like reading book now which. I read inconspicuous consumption inconspicuous picky with a lot of these things like the Internet uses so much energy and will continue to you so much. We're part of that. How do we how do we escape? So it is very complex and I agree we need you too as a society really allow governments and companies to start regulating in a different way. That will make bigger. Larger guilt transitions. Because it's hard for individuals to make that choice when one things cheaper than the other one thing that we can sort of end on that is so important is voting for science. We always have talked about this. It's like look at your politicians Titians look at how they wanNA handle the environment and science and make a decision in that way because we're not talking about government's needing to have more power and yet we were we're also talking about the Australian government being ignorant do science and Donald trump is ignorant opposed to sci like that is really really really scary and so we do need as a collective where there's democracies voting for science and holding our leaders accountable. Yeah you you just opened up a whole loop that I. We won't talk about it but just yet realizing that's also some people's fear about giving government power. What if they're doing things we don't want them to do? What if it's a government that we've given so much autonomy to that is actually doing things that they're regulating things we don't want them to or I don? Everyone has different opinions on. What is the right way to govern so it is jeff is to say a very complex issue that we don't have a simple solution for but it's probably talking about it all?.

That my colleague Livia Allback Ripka on the events that led up to this. It's Monday in January thirteenth. Live you. You're on the ground in Australia covering these wildfires that have been raging throughout the Konin. What have you been seeing these past few weeks so the scenes that are unfolding here in Australia a totally unprecedented? You and we do have bushfires here in Australia. But what we're seeing now has not happened before it's been labeled the worst fire season ever recorded an and apocalypse a nightmare and like looking into the gates of hell.

They traveled down the coast just becoming more immense yes and ferocious officials.

"Escalation of conflict with Iran. We're going to talk about the wildfires in Australia. In greater depth and Beth has grudgingly agreed to talk about Harry and Megan's dare I say shocking announcement about their future inside the British royal family shocking. It is shocking. Listen it's it's shocking. Okay that is as an accurate description of what happened. Why don't we start in Iran before we moved to this breaking news out of the UK? There's been a a lot this week since we were last with you. There has been the Iraqi parliament's decision to ask US troops to leave the non-binding finding decision. But it was fairly significant. Our administration's gross display of incompetence in sending the administration in now says was a draft letter to Iraq. Saying yes we do respect your sovereignty and will in fact pull our troops out a draft letter already translated into Arabic so. I'm a little skeptical of that explanation. Not as first draft. I'm betting and then the attack by Iran on on an Iraqi Air Force Base Message from the President on twitter assuring us that all is well with that statements on twitter from on both US Iraqi officials indicating that everyone feels perhaps like we're even and so we can maybe stop doing this but not forever ever because we still really don't like each other. Is that a fair summary. I do think de-escalation is accurate. If you're only paying attention to the actions that Iran is claiming right so I think that they felt it was necessary to to openly take action and claim it which they did which is unusual for Iran. Right right and I think they did that and I think that that they did that while having their foreign minister on twitter and many other places saying we don't want war. We don't want war. We don't want war and so there was is an effort to de escalate the forward facing part of this conflict but I think the the back end of this conflict any forward movement on keeping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon cyber Weber attacks any interference in our elections or proxy battles with militias in Iraq or Syria. or or Lebanon. I think that has only heightened and become more dangerous and more problematic in there is even less. It's room for compromise or agreement or mutual understanding part of the reason. I sound so cynical about this. Is that we issued. You'd another round of sanctions in connection with the president's announcement that things are de escalating. And I agree with you. Sarah that the motivations of of a whole group of very loosely affiliated actors are certainly dialed up against the United States for the foreseeable future. And I worry about the economic pressure I read a really illuminating interview with the president of Iraq in the New Yorker. A number of pieces of that interview really struck me the one that I can't stop thinking about is the president of Iraq. Said you know American politicians constantly campaign on a message of jobs jobs jobs how important it is to keep adding jobs to the United States economy in he. He said think about what we need here. We need that to an exponential degree here because we have this fragile economy economy. That is trying to rebuild. We have so many young men who do not have access to good work here and the opportunities for those young men uh are not favorable outcomes for our country or yours so we got to have a minute economically to get things in order. We've got to have some foreign investment vestment and by continuing to squeeze Iran economically. We harm the entire region not just Iran and and we increase I think the likelihood for the next militia to spring up that decides it's going from regional actor you're to global extremist perpetrator of terror. Well and the other part of this conversation that's really bothering me. Is this idea idiot that well no lives were lost. Everybody move on when we still lack so much information about the a Ukrainian airplane crash in Iran. One thing that I read. That really helped me put this in. Context was An article with aviation expert. Saying hey you never know. Why plane crashed that quickly? A plane doesn't crash in the moments later. Everybody says Oh mechanical air moving on on like that's not how it works. It takes weeks and months to figure out what happened and the fact that the Iranians are claiming that it's clearly mechanical error that they have taken possession of the black box is really concerning to me and I don't think that we are even at the beginning of understanding standing what happened to the one hundred seventy six people who lost their lives on that plane or what caused the plane to go down and so until we have a better understanding I think think like dusting if our hands off and saying nothing to see here no lives lost is It's a little preemptive in my opinion and I understand understand that the connection to Ukrainian plane seems like maybe we're getting into conspiracy theory territory but it's it's hard not to do that. When like the United States Russia certainly uses the Middle East as ground to advance its own interests and we know that Russia has has been allied with Iran at least as it relates to Syria and in other ways and so for Russia to take advantage of the mess that I think our administration created over the past? Couple of weeks would make sense. It would follow a playbook. And so it's not as attenuated as maybe it seems well and even if it was an accident because of of heightened awareness and escalation in the region and everybody being a little hair trigger that still matters. Upset still should be put in tally of what this cost us. What this cost the world and not just sorta filed away as an accident? It doesn't really matter I still think that is really important. And I think the other part of this conflict that isn't over is the conflict between Congress and the president over her the justification for the assassination of General Sulejmani and the ongoing conversation about just which branch of government. It has the authority to make these decisions. There are reports that the briefing West contentious. You have some of the strongest language that we've heard word used to emphasize the administration. Yeah from Republican. Senator Mike Lee who said that. This is the worst briefing. He attended his nine years. I don't know Sarah I have such mixed reaction to that. There is a part of me that just listens to those complaints from Congress and thinks this administration has expressed nothing but contempt for the institution of Congress since the day that president trump was sworn in. And so. What do a you expect you know when you start to cede power authority people take more and more and more and that's what the administration's doing they're just taking more and more? I saw quotes in the dispatch this morning. Newsletter that I read about how Staffer said that the members of the administration who were there to brief Congress acted like they were doing congress a favor by being there and that it was an annoying favor that they really wish that they weren't doing that attitude is wholly unsurprising if you look at the track record of the last couple of years. Yeah I definitely understand what you're saying that you know and I think we began a part of this conversation on Tuesday. which is is if you have a congress that has acquiesced in the expansion of executive power? You're what role do they have to play. Or what justification do they have in trying to take back some of that power and I think it's complicated i. I don't think Congress is ever one body I think particularly with the House of Representatives. You have a new Congress not just a Democratic Congress but a Democratic Congress composed of many freshman members numbers many freshman members with intelligence experience who most likely have a very different view of Congress's role. And you know you have a new generation of Congress just that grew up under this or authority. That's been in place since two thousand and one. Their almost their entire our entire adult lives looking at this with fresh eyes and I think we need to give them The benefit of the doubt or the leeway or the freedom to push back and reclaim that power for Congress and then there's also a part of me and with regards to people like Rand Paul and Mike Lee which I think is sort of a different conversation I believe me I understand the instinct to say too little too late guys. Give me a break. But I'm really trying to lean into that. You know the conversation we had on Tuesday and the idea that you know we need conservatives and not to shut someone down completely. Because I I think they've been a part of the problem in the past There was actually a really good conversation about this on friends like these with Ana Marie Cox and they were actually talking about Christianity search and Brin recommended it to me but should this great conversation about never trumpers and like she was basically like you know it's really hard to listen and Bill Kristol and not think about his role in the lead up to the Iraq war and the his role and all the sort of conservative long-term conservative intellectuals and in in some senators as well and their role in this expansion under Bush and even Obama now all of a sudden you know cry now in the face of a problem. They helped create but She was like I still believe that. They have a right to participate in the conversation. I don't WanNa shut them out completely. I just think we also have to hold them responsible. And I think that's what we have to do with Mike Lee and and Rand Paul and people especially key to say we need your voices we appreciate you recognizing the problem. We also need you to take responsibility you for your role but we can have them take responsibility without pushing them back into the arms of the trump administration by shutting them down so hard and so quick that let me take this will bother approach right and I think that's what's really difficult to do. I think I'm looking at this in a little bit different way. 'CAUSE 'CAUSE I don't disagree with anything that you just said my problem and maybe this is a little bit of a departure. As you're talking about the freshman members of Congress I think a fundamental all source of the difficulty in Congress exerting its role is that it has allowed itself to be animated by individual personalities instead of by collective action and this administration has talked to the American people consistently about Congress as WHO's with us and against us on an individual basis and win someone like Jeff Flake before his retirement would make a speech criticizing the administration instead of talking about. What are the problems here? The administration just turns its IR to Jeff Flake as an individual and Jeff Flake as an individual who'll retires and on we go to the next dust up and for me. I care a lot that we have the information that this briefing was is inadequate. And I think Senator Lee for that and I also recognize that until you have congress as a body willing to act to who exert its power collectively regardless of who is in the majority in that power. But we're Congress says we care about our power over declaring in war we care about our power to issue subpoenas and have them complied with in connection with our constitutional oversight role. We care about the administration trying through Executive Branch rulemaking to Undo Statutes that Congress has written we care about all of these things enough to sometimes come to a conclusion that maybe doesn't align with our party platforms because the power of Congress as a collective body matters. It's just hard for me to feel super optimistic because I see this is such a large issue that has been laying dormant for so long while speaking of collective action. It looks like Nancy. Pelosi is getting very close to sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate which will trigger the Senate the trial. There's been a lot of discussion this week about the rules for that trial and we wanted to give you a heads up that we will be discussing Senate impeachment roles in detail on Tuesdays episodes. Look Fort that listen. Here's the thing I've been thinking a lot about this and I don't want to make this about Harry and Megan and just their individual like a Celebrity Gossiping. I know you're not into that and I don't really think that's why this is important but I do think for better or for worse. The British Royal Family.

"From the newsroom of the Washington Robert Samuels from the Washington. Post Kaplan Hi this is this is post reports. I'm marteen powers. It's Thursday January January ninth today. What fires in Australia tell us about climate change trump's success in remaking the judiciary sorry and the unfolding royal drunk? Hundreds of wildfires are burning across southeastern Australia. The fires of the size of whole countries. We're talking twenty six million acres. That's nearly one hundred nineteen thousand square miles of land which have been dissipated summation by fire. The fires have destroyed thousands of homes the decimated wildlife the Australian government says thousands thousands of Koalas have been killed. Australia is already a huge country geographically so on top of several years of drought. There's so much fuel in the country tree that can burn and these fires have become vicious and ferocious because of the dry material. That's being swept into the path of the Fire Kate. Shuttleworth is a journalist analyst based in Melbourne. She's been reporting on the fires for the past two months. I've reported natural disasters earthquakes in New Zealand. And I've reported war and this was enlightened. Nothing I've ever seen. We chartered a boat and traveled nearly six hours along the Australian coastline through the best straight. which is an extremely rough patch of say and all along that coast? There was a haunting yellow orange backdrop and the air was thick with smoke at times and really difficult to breathe in. The whole coast was on fire. And that was. When I realized the scale of things FIS you could see the burning it was haunting that was apocalyptic.

"Robert and takes us ten minutes to get. Yeah you smarter on the Clinton of Tech Business Politics. I'm Dan primack today. Show Softbank Shaft Startups and trump's twitter threats but first Australia on on fire so sometimes you hear Democrats say that America is the only country where climate change is a debate rather than an accepted fact. But that's untiringly true. It's also been hotly contested issue in Australia. Where current Prime Minister Scott Morrison won election last year with a coal positive climate change skepticism message? That sounded a lot like president trump with whom he has something of an international bromance but Morrison may soon have no choice but to change course as his. The country is in flames after its hottest and driest year on record. Nearly fifteen million acres have burned so far twenty. Four people are dead. Thirteen hundred homes have been lost with countless. More threatened and local colleges estimate that half a billion animals are dead and speaking of animals. Listen to this so that's not an actual siren. That's an Australian Magpie type of bird that mimics sound and and right now it's not hearing much else to mimic. Obviously what's happening in. Australia is a human and environmental catastrophe and comes on the heels of the two thousand eighteen wildfires in California. Yeah and last year's massive burn of the Brazilian rainforest all three cases involved countries were leaders tend to treat. Climate change is a punchline but the question now for Australia is if the flames have finally reached the political tipping point. If fifteen seconds we'll go deep with the Washington Post Andrew Friedman but first this actually is chief technology elegy correspondent enough free chairs breaking news and analysis on the most consequential companies in players in tech from the valley to DC. Subscribe to get smarter faster at sign up dot axios DOT COM and now back to the podcast. We're joined now by Andrew. Friedman the deputy weather editor editor at The Washington Post tweets talk a little bit here. There have been wildfires before in Australia. These are obviously much larger. What can we attribute just the breadth arrests in the ferocity of this too so Australia has never really been as hot and dry at the same time as they have been recently twenty? Nineteen with fair how this is the year. December was one of their top two hottest ever month. It had their to hottest days ever on record for the country three in December so you've had just tinderbox dry conditions throughout the vegetation in southeastern Australia in particular and that really primes the situation for any spark that comes along could create some sort of explosive fire development speaking any spark. We don't have any stories or any explanation yet and what technically started this right whether it be lightning striker camper lighting a campfire. We don't actually know that yet do we well. We know that are thin has been involved is suspected in in several of the fires which is not all that unusual is that what's behind this. Huge outbreak affiars. No but that is involved in in potentially intentionally sitting a believes a couple of these fires others are lightning others are started by other fires themselves. There's a term in Australia in some some of these warnings. That is actually really frightening. And I hadn't seen it before which is known as an ember attack where in a period of strong winds some of these fires I have been sending out burning embers miles out ahead of the fire and what that does is essentially 'cause spot fires ahead of it to the can then turn into major fires and then I can merge into what you'd call Mega Fire Jonathan Swan. WHO works here at Axios in this from Australia? He texted me this morning. said that what he's hearing from family and friends is one of the big issues there and it's not surprising is firefighters are simply do not know how to handle something. This large is just beyond their scope of training. What happens next here? Is there a way we'd actually stop these outside of pray for rain outside of pray for rain. No it's likely that these fires and this week is actually a better week weatherwise otherwise but outside of appreciable rainfall. This is not gonNA end anytime soon with. They're hoping for is that they won't get many any more days of extreme to catastrophic wildfire risk. They're not gonNA put these out they've been asking for more aerial support board. They've been asking for more people to come to the front lines. Australia has a lot of volunteers in their firefighting force. More than the United States does ah the. US has both a federal force and state forest and there have been some wildfire. Firefighting planes flew in from California to Australia Australia. Although one of the weird things is that because of Australia's fire season started so early California's on fire at the same time that South Eastern Australia. Israeli was so that they weren't able to call in out from the companies and the people that they normally call in help from from your perspective. How's The Australian government responded from a qualitative basis has it been doing qualitative basis the federal government meaning? The government led by Scott. Morrison has been a disaster. I've been talking to people in Australia. Triumphs of various political persuasions. And they're telling me you know he's not shown a proper amount of empathy. He arrived in an area That had been decimated by fires. The people basically heckled him to the point where he got back in his motorcade and laughed. And you guys actually the Washington Post for folks who want to see if there's actually a video go up on your side. Yeah there is and you know if you look on the Hashtag Scott for marketing which is kind of a lot of Australians. derisively call him because is he used to be the head of Tourism Australia. You'll see a lot of kind of the waste. They think about him now. It's complicated because Morrison was reelected somewhat. Recently he is very pro co-development he is very. I don't know that I'd call him at climate denial. He's more skeptical of a lot of the mainstream science ants on climate and denies a lot of the linkages between climate change and these fires. So He's vulnerable on two points. He's vulnerable on not giving enough resources to firefighters our fighters and not being apathetic and being caught on vacation in Hawaii when this all started shamed into coming home and only coming home one day early the state governments are really the ones that lead fire response in Australia and they've been much more on the ball and then the people that Australians are into for leadership. But you know when I've asked. Australians what they figure Morrison Right now. They've basically said he doesn't speak for me when we think about the big California for new wildfires from two years ago that didn't seem to create any change in the political climate debate in the US. When we see what happened in Brazil that does not appear at least to have made any political impact yet in Brazil? Or maybe it's too early. Do you believe from what you've seen so far and says some crystal ball gazing and some foreign policy. I guess what we're seeing in Australia. Failure is that going to actually change the conversation Australian make Australia more like Europe than the US at the very good question. I think that this could be the turning point Australia. Just because this is so big and so dramatic in terms of the visuals and so many people are suffering and everybody knows somebody who is affected however you also have the influence of the Murdoch owned press empire in Australia And they are really striking the tone similar to what president trump said about California. When he said you know they're not raking the forest enough and in Australia Charlie They're talking about how they are not doing prescribed burns because the environmentalists won't let them and they're not you know thinning out the forests and lobby lobby enough so there are some similarities to how this played out in the United States and the last three or four prime ministerial elections in Austrailia have turned on climate change to some degree and I wouldn't be surprised if the next one did. We're expecting a pretty large protests protests mounted the end of this week in Australia by those who are want climate action so it remains to be seen. I mean I'm some of these a little bit pessimistic. Anything anything is going to change. In countries that have really entrenched climate denial interests and such fossil fuel based economy and Friedman deputy weather editor of The Washington. Post thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for having me my final two right after this. There's more news out there than ever before but these days it's harder than ever to find it and to know what to trust axios. AM takes effort out of getting smart by synthesizing. The ten stories. That will drive the day and telling you I. They matter subscribe at sign sign up dot axios DOT COM and now back to the podcast that was done for my final two and Softbank the Japanese investment giant known. It's big bets. That's in companies like Uber Slack. And we work. What's new today is an axios report that Softbank his walked away from investing in several startups after having submitted term sheets and telling the companies that delays were only procedural this matters for companies not only because they lost out on hundreds of millions of dollars from Softbank but also because they lost an enormous Chris amount of time which is one of their most valuable resources and for Softbank? It's a huge reputational hit. That will make it harder to invest in highly sought after companies. So why is this happening. I think there are two theories one is that Softbank simply doesn't have the money or at least as much money today as it thought it would have. When it signed the term sheets? The firm's been trying to raise its second one hundred Billion Dollar Vision Fund but today has been unable to hold even a I close from outside investors. The other theory is that this is shell shock. From the we work situation with Softbank recalibrating its philosophy and risk appetite either way it is a very bad look and finally president trump over the weekend use twitter to publicly threatened Iran including warning that the US could target cultural sites in apparent violation of international law. This is prompted the usual calls for twitter to pull the tweets and Orban Orban trump believing that his threats violence are in violation of the company's terms of service twitter though isn't playing along with the critics instead relying on a policy of leading political article leaders tweet things that normally wouldn't allow other people to tweet the tricky part here. Though is the last year twitter publicly announced the policy that could let it add warnings tweets it deems to violate its rules so keep them up but put a little warning sticker so far however twitter has an added any such warning to tweets from trump. Or anyone else. And we're done vic. Thanks for listening. It's producers. Tim Show Naomi Shaven have a great national shortbread day. And we'll be back tomorrow with other pro rata podcast..

Today we played peninsula kings would very different experience experience. I think incredibly pleasant surprise. We didn't know much about it through the first time you turn in. It's just more luscious. That's the first thing the AC- luscious greenery. It's significantly more green. It's on the it's not that far from Kingston Heath but it's right on the border between the Mornington peninsula and wear the Australian sandbelt ins so it is still firm. Don't get me wrong. A lot of the tee shots shots and all that still firm. It's still rounds. But it wasn't as severe and firm and fast as Kingston Heath blatantly and the Greens. I thought were nowhere near the same firmness. They were just faster faster. Yup but which is very fast and they're pure insanely pure. Oh maybe this pure screens ever seen. I really like anything. We saw. pyner Stephen Pure they were perfect. They had little backstops which was just made it more fun. We did it years. We did this at pioneers. Like pioneers number two was like the core just like Kingston Heath was and it's the same thing like it's a little more flat than the ones that we liked or for me. I'll speak for myself like it was more flat. A little less characteristic but like the golf nerds and like all the architects. They love those types of golf courses. Then we went to pilots number four for which was just more luscious had like character to it. I like character. It doesn't have to be everything that you know. Makes it a top one hundred golf course when we got to this place today peninsula kings would I knew just from driving in. I'm like I'm going to enjoy this a lot better. It was spectacular. I had so much elevation. Change range a lot of holes that really stood out a thirty six hole facility. They just redid a bunch of it over the last five six seven years they redid the clubhouse just opened like six months the house is Tony. Macula substance clubhouse is liberty national level. It really was. They have to all they have have. They have like Grass tennis courts that Right Lurch Yep Grass tennis courts. The had a bowling like outdoor bowling. WHO's a lawn? Bowling Mall was the most most like manicured perfect. Everything artificial turf. They had all the lines out there. They had this just like off. The wing of their main. Clubhouse was just a glass room with your Olympic sized pool inside strew so all of that combined with these two incredible golf courses. We played the north course to when we got to experience variance in right off the gate. We just could tell like okay. This is different. You could see the You could see the city of Melbourne in the background. Oh cool which was so so awesome. It was clearly twenty miles thirty miles away or whatever it is but you can see from two or three different teas. You could see the water so it just kind of it wasn't that's sort of water views but again on four five Ts. Maybe you can kind of see it off. In the distance we started on number five. Start at five because we MR teatime. Yeah big we showed up and they said you're late that's the only thing they said they took care of us. They were great. We'll drive out to number five and then you can just play one through four after after so you have plenty of time to film and all that which we did our guy. Harry joined US club. Champion You know a couple of people throughout the day. Where like driving? Now you could tell that we are the dumb Americans and I don't know if I'm just like self conscious about it or I think that like everyone's like thinks that we just look like it like we have a target on our back but like I just feel like everywhere. We've been so far even when we go to lake. We went to McDonald's we couldn't figure out a pay like the credit cards weren't working like everyone's GonNa Workers Idiots also today and everybody else was doing the Pushcart pushcart pain. Yeah everybody was still catching up. Golf carts were slow in the people down where we got. We got the drone fine everywhere with I bless God bless you might pick that up or not plus I try to put it all do very well at trying to hide it trying to hide the sneeze trying to hide the Mike. Okay bless you But yeah I thought like a couple of times that people are just looking at us. I A couple of guys on the T.. And like were these guys doing like making cracking jokes but then we had Harry come along and he didn't really say much just to begin with you just like appeared after green like whatever like eleven or twelve and he stuck with us the whole day we found out that he's two-time club champions. Yep He's a plus one and he's just the coolest guy ever saying that we're going to get fingered and all this stuff and just like super like you could tell he's a successful dude and like really like like he's like he's just like successful you could tell he's got a great attitude and he's also kind of like shy but then hilarious Lewis got like Frisbee but it's it's all hidden but when it comes to you also maliciously love to laugh at our demise and he would laugh and he would cover his mouth like it was a giggle but he would be like gasping when we look back. Look like Harry's just laughing faces I. It's quite entertaining quite entertaining. Yeah someone would hit a downhill. PUTT thirty feet off degrees. It'd be quiet and you could just hear him cock like thirty five but it was maybe thirty feet off. Line that one that we were talking about. We're like oh no. It's one definitely has a spring right to left and we thought it was like ten foot break. He's like you idiot. Says he let me hit the ball just completely wrong way and he goes. What was what you see there? I don't know Harry. Why don't you just shut the fuck up? Just Blue Ridge was at the bottom of the green saying period. Tell him a word and the two of us out there like the way out to the right. I was reading the PUTTIN. I'd look in the corner like Harry's lacking on now I think six feet the other right it was a poker a poker game trying to beat your yellow yellow information so that you can then determine Rita Harrah's react you can also tell that like at any moment he could grab one of our clubs and just stuck a ball to and from the Penn.. They just had that like he had that confidence where like golf was a joke to him. Watching US play. It was like funny. Yeah though I t that I saw him I was he he he just was there and then I was like he's like this is a tough hall of your plan for the back and I was on our plan because your plan from one joke. Yeah and then we all basically probably made both we. We were doing this trousers video and we get people to talk about everything. That's GonNa be awesome when you see like when we do the drone work and then when we interview the people and we got Harry to talk about it but we also gives us a little like a tidbit of each hole like one hundred eighteen and it was funny when you watch this video to listen to him when he's talking what about home eighteen. He's talking about it as if he was playing. He says every single holes easy. He's like it's just a driving down the middle easy chip up and then a two-putt and it's no problem. It's it's like you know I mean there are some times where his plus one seeped into it where you're just like it's GonNa be hilarious to see how easy he makes it sound where he's like you just want to get it up. There was watching thus making eleven two on the whole eighteen that he was like. Oh this is going to test you with the driver and we'd let so many fairways go perfectly on Tahoe. The worst hit what shots when he wants to. He explains on this video. Exactly where the prime shots are. Hit where you're landing spots are where your second I should go and we don't do any of it no and you'll see on of it also was like yeah. It's a pitching wedge for their fire right some of the things you were saying. We're embarrassing like like he was he was like yeah. It's like five hundred four hundred and fifty meters which is like five ten thing. We'll see you have to blast a driver and then from there you'll have like you. He said like seven or something like that. Like your reputable. That's another thing we're playing meters. We're not doing your switch lenders and absolute grind for you boy over here we're doing. We're doing meters. This is not your forte. No we've already played thirty six holes and I'm just GONNA I've guest every single time. I don't know the at all I asked you every time I've never once Mike Lynch was that we've not yet once on this trip played two rounds of golf. We haven't had a yard and we're not allowed to the whole play meters always switched arrange finders a few meters and that's all it is shadow depend. I think the ball travels further. Here it's hot. It's warm. The ball was flying handed off as war but bounces. It just goes hit one hundred sixty five yard nine iron today. That's just that's just out of my game bomb. It's a bomb out of my ex. Not good that's well. No I mean like I think I hit it flushed I. The wind was behind me but like the ball. Is Flying Club here. I mean you hit a drive today. That was what was two hundred ninety meters. There was bomb. Whatever it was you hit it like what was that The one for a four year lasts you kill them with Vala just went through through the air it was like you hit zero. Gravity thing was ripped. Yeah I will say like. I don't hit the ball very far as everybody knows. And on that whole to like I a three iron that usually goes maybe to ten for me it would like to seventy..

I don't know that there's an a movie I can just throw out there. I'd have to sit there and you're a coward and at least I can own up to something. The the Martian is a great great movie titans triple. I'm not sure why I wanted to. I wanted to travel around the world all ball. We just got off a plane we went. We got off a plane. We went straight to a golf course and I ducked hooked drive. Didn't even didn't even see what happened. And and I said all around the World Ball and Trent like tread smoked within the middle. You're a coward Friday tonight so I didn't take bullied you. I the Martian is my number one Sunday movie. No doubt about it. What makes the Martian different is that? There's it's it's for first of all Matt. Damon is such a likable character and and like his ability to take that situation. which is the worst in the world they left? You wanted to reflect it Mike. That's not a metaphor that left you universe and it makes it a ton of legitimate knowledge like it's fascinating hear him talk about solving actual problems with real sides. The science sciences accurate. Like what is it botany. Where he's making all the botanist honest and then he's got to figure out how to like? Get the Morris Code of this in the signal back back to the earth to because he knows what cameras they'll check and what satellites right that keeps your brain firing. We're like Oh shit. Oh Shit and all that combined. It's just it's a phenomenal. Fuck Man I don't know number one's not even the same classes ad Astra after all right whatever well we got through the flight. That's all we did. Matters made it through fly. Also get a credit whatever earl out there to read it at me that Masters Dot Com finally put up the full final round of twenty nineteen masters. Save my life and it was going on at the same time as the hero world challenge final round. When I couldn't we couldn't livestream out of the plate but for whatever reason I could stream Basler's dot com file around six hours? I didn't want it to end. I didn't want the fight to end it just especially at starts like twenty minutes the streaming service up there. What's up good wi FI I? It was crazy. I couldn't stream anything else. You can always dream. That was like the plane was such a Pro Tiger trip. Play Hum and it was doing that thing. We're going in and out between fuzzy unlike perfect. But that's fine I don't care and just reliving it in like what I didn't realize was or what I'd forgotten is like it. legit never looked like tire is going to win the tournament until lawn are ahead of the water twelve like it just wasn't close like tiger. Bogies ten hits his driveway right on eleven MOLINARI's getting up and down from everywhere is making every pot. You're thinking like he'd been invincible for four months for like a year right. And you're thinking like this is just over tires two shots pack. Dj's right there Brooks's right there and Molinaro just won't make a mistake like there's tiger it was an afterthought Molinaro had already proved that he can stare down tigers like throat and basically just this is my tournament. Yeah he's doing it again. Cottam Carter the news. There was a moment I think when we said is like Whoa in Oregon Tigers like biggest villain now for the rest of his career molinari own tiger woods is that like his Achilles heels. This fucking Italian Talia guy this guy who just laughs around a little bit of swag walk. It's also funny to watch him do because they do the whole There's only one hundred and fifty thousand golfers and all of Italy and they've got this this leader who's going to win them and then he just collapses and enrolling wins. It was awesome to watch that hero. He saved my whole flight. Thank you so much coach. We lay in Australia. We are not going on this week like you said we're playing golf. Recover the President's Cup we've got credentials we're working with the PGA tour four. They run the President's cup. You can follow all week at four played pilot on instagram on twitter and putting up videos photos live coverage of rounds of all kinds of stuff. That's going on. We landed Australian. We pretty much go straight to the golf course. By the time we get the car rental car which I'm driving arriving which turns out the steering wheels on the right side of the car and you drive on the left side of the road. Terrifying almost killed everybody. What three times? Yup Dude you at least it was taken a a little bit too long for you to get adjusted. I was getting nervous and like I don't think I could drive. I don't think the mental capacity to because there are some moments where I was like man I definitely would have hugged that corner and turn right right into that trap right. It's turning turning into the right way of direction. Yup because it's obviously it takes a little bit too left journey hogging the corner corner you hug right curve from the other side of the car a right turn. It's so tempting to just go into oncoming traffic right so trump that you just can't do it now. This is a dumb American of me and like an I think like America just runs the world which like a lot of stuff we do does but like to me. I said this to you guys. I think that there has to be more head on collisions. In countries in which the driving is on the left side like we're doing right here in Australia as opposed to in America. I just like I think that people will just get used to the way we drive when they come here for some reason like. I think it's harder for people to learn on the fly. What we're doing in Australia than it is in America for some some reason? I know we're used to it. And that's the reason why I feel that way. I just think like any tourists that would come to these other countries. I think Americans are more. I think Americans organs are more like the odds are that we're going to turn into Europe those like right but when we're in America we're not thinking thinking that Europeans are going to be flying down the highway at the wrong way ever. It's never on my mind but I got something on their mind here right. Do you think that way or no. That's like something that if they're conscious of that American that's GonNa drive the wrong way. Like like rigs went the wrong way down a street. I literally was having down the wrong way win. When does that happen? Ever in America had no point is like somebody coming at me. I'd be like a European. We'd never be your own. They'd be like they just psycho like going like murder-suicide what's going on here. I'm just I just went into the American like on his way to McDonald's which we had today we did you. I went to some good Australian. Me yeah I said to him. I said the China said. McDonald's slaps the same way it doesn't slap different. That's the beauty of McDonald's. Yes no matter where you put it. It's always what the fuck is customary to Australian food like what he's Australian Food Alpach. Nice I don't know steak I think are really good. Australia is very good red wine. Yeah interesting yellowtail tale free adds nothing. But it's like when you think of Australia. What do you do any sort of like food? Come to mind now. Yeah shrimp on the Bobby. Right except like stereotypical stuff like kebabs. Yeah can we talk about Christmas and Australia would love to. So we all understand and if you don't back home it's summertime in Australia right now. It's ninety eight degrees today. Ninety nine on boom ninety eight on my phone phone shots and ninety degrees one hundred one. Shay Yeah I'm trying to think of it was one hundred won't transform degrees the Middle Summer. I mean it gets dark at eight forty five pm and something like that. It's it's the longest days it's the middle of summer. We are wrong go. I do I was thinking of I like girls Abercrombie and Fitch had won wish. And she'll be back summer. That's that's I think so. I don't think that Oh all right but degree sounds different. I feel like that song. This is their number one song. That's that's that's nickle they're Cincinnati's I used to watch the Nicholas and Jason Show Chicken of the sea. Okay so that was still early and like the reality. TV is to those tickets. Right tuna catoon as June so Christmas in Australia. It's the middle summertime yet. The first sign that we saw was like Merry Christmas and it just had snow all around the side. That's right there. People that decorate their homes have like snowmen on their roofs. It's fucking summertime. Who says rough like you say roof roof they'll go? They'll rough rough rough offers on fire like doggy daycare or something. By the way by the way it's elephant I was so covered All those white boy bands other than backstreet blend together. David Blaine put me on the roof. He put me on the ANDROID android. That fucking rough rough. We do this every time it does. Make me go for block dance every David Blaine. It's like a two thou- early two thousands Internet video that was on E. bombs world and it's this guy it's it's this guy's imitating David Blaine all of a sudden. He's just like David Blaine. We'll do something and look into the camera so the guy would do something he'd put the Guy He loved it the guy onto the roof guy. David Blaine puppy on the rough and David staring at the camera. Like it's very funny getting along check lane so Christmas is weird here different. It doesn't make sense but I get it. We're trying to think about where that comes from. Like where does it come from that. They associate Christmas here with just winter. Like how is it not evolved to where it's just summer. It's a summer auto. How is Santa Ana fucking surfboard with his presence? Right with the toys or something. Why is he in a Salei ghetto? You've got a good point about Europeans and it could have been made up and it seemed correct where you send the car about where Saint Nick and Santa originated in Europe. This was like a colony where people came or whatever and then just stuck I mean I mean that's a good deal of that law fly and was not as head like I'd be something like the marketing of it right like there's gotta be like like the old time I'm just like somewhere. Somehow like books were written about just like Santa Claus giving gifts coming on his sleigh with reindeer like had to be or Australia's driving around the car listening to like winter wonderland. Yes Harden Chris Paul Long Probably. That's crazy that is Santa roof degrees out. It's going to go get him. I think the the place where we all bought water on the walkover somewhere. Yeah yeah where it was but I heard yesterday just fully embrace it despite the weather being the complete opposite. Quick cash for you guys okay. Sure how many Celsius hundred in one degrees Fahrenheit thirty two wrong. How many say four? How many cells? I what is a hundred degrees Celsius fucking no.

"At that point the Up until that point the only why people could come to Australia from Latin America where we had some post World War Two European migrants who went for example to Tina and if they'd been in Latin America less than five years they still count as European. And we're allowed to come to Australia. That was there was very limited. A skill functional solid land from non-european areas But it wasn't up until nineteen seventy-three that they had that op and allowed people to to come in so the first wide would say. I think the pus while migration action from spine from Latin America it would be following the nineteen seventies Where we had a big big migration from southern Alvin kind actually would would it be now I group it would be from Tina from Uruguay and Chile? The Australian government offered assisted packages for travel. The end paypal it setup migrant hostels people came and lived in these hostels the night moved to the surrounding suburbs and when you look at the distribution of the community across Australia you can say that these older communities are primarily in Sydney and to a lesser degree in Melbourne. And it's because I think their original placement in these hostels in these major cities ladies and then I moved out to the suburbs. I'm so then. Sheila came just slightly lighter than that and then more recently. Well then we had el El Salvador came off to that that was in the eighty s with a special humanitarian program. That was set up that yet I was talk Dorian migration and then more recently way saying as I said migration from Columbia massive increase in migration. So Catherine.

I was GonNa ask you in a moment there and obviously the If you follow the news here in the US but the immigrant community here in the US is going through difficult difficult times and you know so if anyone needs a valuable frame of reference as to where the current administration might be you know looking at or how what their view is of the world when it comes to immigration and Migration Policy Interesting frame of reference would be the white Australia policy from from back back in the day now one component of the White Australia policy that I'm curious to know if it was active or part of or still part of Australia in in the nineteen seventy s as this community was developing is distinct. Called the dictation test was still active during this time in the seventies or was that are already already obsolete and ticket out long ago. Unfortunately I dont know win. The dictation test hissed was taken out but certainly having a high level of English is has always been a priority In Australia and if anything. It's actually strengthening more recently. Just recently there was quite a bit of discussion about rising. The level of the English tests that people people native to pass in fact some people said that rising to a level that was equivalent to getting into you having university level English And there was quite a bit of debate. What about that in in the end did it didn't go through? Fortunately but certainly language has long been used as a way to to to discriminate against against people I guess another interesting point about languages. And we think about these waves of migration jury the at Margaret's from humanitarian reasons were often unskilled. They often had a low level of of English. They had little economic power and we've seen a massive change to that now. The kind of migration that we saying is very highly skilled For example from Columbia from Venezuela very highly educated title very highly skilled have some level of English and also have sufficient money because Australia has right is continually rising amount of money that you need to demonstrate that you've got and the the criteria so it's very very different social group that we're seeing a massive social change in out-migration which of course for Australia. It's it's a massive boon to get these very well educated very motivated people in. It's obviously just a massive loss for the for the countries that coming from. Yeah you know what that's interesting that you mentioned that that does sort of the intellectual brain or the brain drain as one might call it whenever they are crisis in places like the aforementioned El Salvador or an orange Chile. It's the intelligence of the country. That's leaving because of some form of persecution from wherever wherever country there may be in question here in the case of El Salvador. It was is a horrendous civil war in the eighties that led a lot of people including my own family to immigrate to the US in one thousand nine hundred eighty S. Not Noise noise. We knew that Australia was an option. During this time suddenly we can see that as Spanish speaking population is very high. Achieving in some ways it was just looking at the census to compare EDUCATION LEVELS FOR PEOPLE WHO report speak Spanish at Hun with those reports speak English at home and interestingly Al Spanish speakers much higher proportion has completed high school and a high proportion have also attained a bachelor's degree at University University. So I think this is consistent with this is very well educated people who are coming out to a Stra Interestingly a lower proportion in have attained a postgraduate degree so I'm not sure whether we saying some sort of ceiling affect their or Oh what's going on with that but certainly any. We can say it very clear to say the high high status of education.

"But nuclear physicist. Heiko says we could earn more if we start storing it the moment the uranium let's exporters from Australia overseas process for example in Canada enriched enriched and then maybe use in a react to in Japan and once the fields expired the fuel elements often kept on site next to the reactor infecting Infocom Shaimaa when the Fukushima catastrophe happened that was one of the issues that not just the reactor melt on but also there was all expired fuel right next to it in Walter Pool which was kept. They're not only could we make money out of taking Roy uranium back once it's being used and it would also fulfill in environmental for this because taking it away from unsecure site if you imagine it being stored if you mentioned the fuel elements being sold in Japan in an Earthquake Zion. It's much better to put wooded underground somewhere in Australia. There's also ethical aspect to it because giving the uranium to the world and we taking it back and of course you can also provided hi did badly against I will give you the uranium and we also make sure that once you've used it it can be stored somewhere. You don't have to build your own facility. We doing that for you. So there's a there's a radio radio commercial aspect to doing this right now and that could be explored. The doesn't have any lead time but storing nuclear waste in Australia isn't isn't such a great idea to everyone. Various groups like the Western Australia nuclear free alliance with part of the campaign to stop a nuclear waste disposal site proposed South Australia in the early two thousands.
