"Today's story is brought to us by Dana Mish and she shares with us a piece of her family story apiece that occurred at Buchenwald. One of the very first Nazi concentration camps and the largest one on German soil, and it's a story that she shared in the publication The Times of Israel, and she graciously recorded it for us. Here's Dana. A few months ago, I stood at Buchenwald in a large open field that was covered in an endless expanse of rocky gray gravel. Ground that I gaze that before me was where the barracks wants have been on that unnaturally human and sunny afternoon thunder ominously clapped from heavy storm clouds that loomed off in the distance disguise certainly echoed my state of mind. As for anyone that visit to concentration camp, it was a particularly sobering and gut wrenching experience. But for me, it was more than just emotional. It was personal. Why was I there to learn about my grandfather who had stood on that very ground some 78 years prior and reconnect with his life, his journey. His story The morning after Krystal enough at the age of 25. My grandfather was arrested by the SS and taken to Buchenwald is a part of this special program. The first ever mass deportation and interment of Jews at that camp. He arrived on November 13th 1938 before the barracks were even built. For three or four days and nights. He waited among 10,000 other Jews in the freezing winter rain to receive a roof over his head and a 20 centimeter wide wouldn't sleeping plank. Many who were there with him during that time didn't survive, And I will always remember the tears that came to my grandfather's eyes in the video interview we have of him as he hesitatingly rehashed the horrors that befell those around him frequently and at random. He was one of all too few who was miraculously able to flee Germany during the Holocaust, and I owe my life to his luck. But his journey wasn't over when he got the United States mere weeks after officially becoming an American, he was drafted into the Army. He was shipped off to Europe back into the eye of the storm, just five years after his time at Buchenwald.
European powers press Iran to back off latest nuclear move
"The Iran nuclear deal are demanding Iran halt its announced plans to produce uranium metal based fuel. Teri Schultz reports. Tehran is banned from this activity for 15 years under the 2015 nuclear deal that is still technically in force. Despite numerous violations, Britain, France and Germany say in a joint statement they're deeply concerned by Iran's announcement it would produce uranium metal, noting the country has quote no credible civilian use for it, but that there are grave military implications. They insist Iran should immediately return to compliance if it wants to preserve the deal. This is just the latest example of the regime's violations since claiming it has the right to breach them after the U. S, withdrew and 2018 and re imposed sanctions lifted by the deal. The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed this week. Iran has begun to produce the uranium metal. Iran says it wants the Biden administration to rejoin the agreement, and then it will discuss complying with it. For NPR news. I'm Teri Schultz in Brussels. This is NPR.

"I'm so forte. Is all change in german politics and of course and interestingly he although he's seen as doing well jens spawned going back to our previous discussion. They haven't done brilliantly in germany either on the vaccine program although france and that is starting to undermine his standing apparently i have to say though lush it is not quite a angler because he's expressed some rather interesting foreign policy views around Being sort of vaguely supportive of rush shirt turkey. And i said in syria us. Oh yes he has. Apparently yeah we'll have to seek to undermine him then but of course he might not wait they even if he is the chancellor candidate he might not win and this is where we come to the sting. Well that could be. Supposing i was a i mean you know in germany. Of course they have these massively broad weird coalitions there could be a coalition of the greens. Who are in second place to the cd interest in all of the polling and then leader i think his name is robert hall beck Could cost potentially be the chancellor that is true One we knows the sp is now way below the greens in the opinion. Polls i think the to under fifteen percents i. We're not gonna get the the labor party equivalent has no chance of getting The chancellorship at least i i think it could well be a conservative green coalition. Because the the cd. You is not a conservative party. In our sense of the word in many ways it over the under mercury's chancellorship she has effectively gone onto the ground or the s t p and indeed the greens in some ways banning nuclear power for example Having this open more immigration policies. So it's not beyond the realm of possibility that The cd you the. The greens could form a coalition but talking of foreign leaders who've dubious foreign policies. What about your heroin. Jacinda ardern this week. I've missed that. What you just before. We go onto criticizing her which i will find very difficult to do. Let's just. I mean we can talk about more when it actually happens. But at whoever of these men replaces angela merkel. It's almost hard to imagine that anybody could replace glamour. Eichel a massive amount of respect for her. She's not she's not my aligned political party but in so many ways including those that you've talked about she has been a phenomenal leader and she's been active sixteen years. It's going to be something not just for germany but for europe for the world in fact when she is no longer leading that country that is true but i think your politics and hers are actually very broadly similar. I think in germany. You probably would be more cd you than as pd at the moment. But yes you're absolutely right. Sixteen years is phenomenal record. But this has happened in germany quite law. You had helmut schmidt not much. How mccoll there from nine nine thousand nine hundred two to nine hundred ninety something I think he was fifteen years. Konrad adenauer of course was there donkeys years as well so it's not unusual in pay for german politics. Of course the dutch government is fallen.

COVID-19 vaccine distribution faces logistical challenges
"Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew mullah my guests today sarah wheaton and dr arthur caplan sarah wheaton chief policy correspondent for politico europe. She joins us from brussels. And autho kaplan is professor of bioethics at new york. University's school of medicine. He joins us from the woods of connecticut. This first part of the show. I want to talk more domestically about what. The responsibilities and duties and possibilities are in terms of vaccinations and how domestic governments go about organizing them the second part of the show. We'll talk more about the global picture. But sarah i'll start with you not withstanding the united kingdom which is actually proceeding with the vaccinations at a reasonably impressive clip. The non uk european countries. Actually being too slow by half they'd seemed to have got off to a very sluggish. Start indeed and it's causing quite a bit of domestic problems around the block and as well it's also calling into question european union's unity in fact. There's a huge blame. Brussels faction basically saying that the eu was too slow to buy doses compared to the united states and the united kingdom on the other hand. You also see that many countries including germany. Which has been one of the most vocal in criticizing. Brussels is not doing a very good job of getting the doses out that they have. is it. just a question of polaroid if you will if we focus on one specific example you look at a country like the netherlands which would appear to have every imaginable advantage. Where doing something like. This is concerned. It is geographically tiny eddies rich. It is well organized you would think vaccinating. The netherlands would be relatively straightforward. Is these things go and yet one. They have barely started and to the government has picked this moment to resign on mass over. Something else entirely right. I think it's really fascinating if you look at the databases that lay out. How countries have been doing with their vaccination. There are some things that show number of doses administered per one hundred. And there's not an obvious pattern so again sort of make sense that you can. Denmark are doing very well but then you have italy. You have spain. You have slovenia and lithuania in the top ten whereas you have big wealthy countries like germany and france and the netherlands as you mentioned doing quite poorly and each country is a precious snowflake with a health system and the value said that really drive this so one of the factors in the netherlands. The case in many countries is at one point. It looked like the astra zeneca vaccine was the front runner that was both the cheapest and the most logistically simple. It doesn't need kind of special freezing transportation so i think the netherlands was a country where they were more banking on that particular shot being the one that was available so they didn't think as much about how they were going to be doing the logistics for a more complicated marnie vaccine in germany. They say actually part of the issue is that germany has many different health insurance systems. And so the data about who actually qualifies for this vaccine is not consistently available whereas in countries like spain and italy. You may be due in certainly in the united kingdom where you have the national health service you have various centralized data system author another thing that countries have had a long time to think about is the order in which they roll the vaccines out. Obviously who gets it i. You can't vaccinate everybody the same week. Does it strike you that. There's much in the way of interesting or indicative divergence in in who is prioritizing. What here in the uk of call us where credit where it's due to the government as we were saying they're doing quite well. They started out with old people. Care homes people with chronic illnesses which might make them more vulnerable. Is that the smart thing to do. I wonder myself with a more thought. Should be given to vaccinating. People like retail workers bus drivers refuse collectors. Delivery people the ones who have to interact with the public and the ones without whom society really would grind to a halt. Yes well we spent an announcement of time in the us arguing over who should go first. Who should go second new should go third lots of categories federal advice flying around about prioritization. But we learned a couple of things once. The vaccine went to the states. They all decided their own priorities. So in some parts of the us prisons and prison staff are being vaccinated in other states. The governors have said no. We're not doing that because they don't like prisoners basically even though that's a high risk population and could be a place where the virus easily spreads back to the community. I've talked to a lot of people who run group homes for intellectually disabled people in nursing homes or care homes but out in the community. They're getting no supply they got forgotten. So i'm lis- despite lots and lots of arguing if you had a clientele of down syndrome individuals. Their death rates are six seven eight times as high as everybody else but somehow the prioritization list so we did spend a lot of time arguing but now we have fifty states with fifty different policies. We've seen a little cheating as a result because when you don't have consistency people start to say that. I'm not gonna follow the rules. So we have people who are rich. Flying to florida to get in line to get vaccinated. Florida per usual doesn't seem to care exactly who's supposed to be a priority. The lord help us to even vaccinating canadians. Their her down there snowbirds so that's causing tension among the locals. But here's the take on less than than i learned. It's great to have these arguments. About who goes i. If your logistics don't work it doesn't matter what your list is if you can't get supply out to the meat packers of the delivery. People are wherever if what we do. Is we send the supply to hospitals and nursing homes or care homes as we've done here that's where the vaccinations occur and those institutions will just vaccinate their employees high risk. Or not is. That's where the refrigerator is. As sarah said it's hard to handle stuff. They're not gonna go running down the street looking for the next category person to give it to so logistics as much as ethics or laying out priority groups drives distribution

I mean men are writing good books bad books and middling books much like everyone is. I feel like i wasn't reading them. Now that i'm reading. I was like all the hullabaloo about their incre- books. Oh man yeah. I i respect that. I think i read a couple of books by men last year. I'm failing to think of actual titles but i'm sure i did. I'm sure i read at least one or two growing you. Everyone should shake up there reading. It's very exciting. So it's been very exciting for me. What are you most excited about that. You've read lately. Okay two books rad lately evaluate like really really really enjoyed the first one is this non-fiction you know how i love nonfiction. An just like so well researched really moving like a story. I had never heard before it like. It's the to then diagram like every like the diagram of the nonfiction. I like it's called the eagles of heart mountain. A true story of football incarceration and resistance in world war two america and it's by bradford pearson and it's great. It's like the story of this world. War two incarceration camp in wyoming. That had a high school football team. So here we are like incarcerating. Japanese people like japanese. Interment that happened. And here's the story about this like football team. This incarceration camp and so you know it's a. It's a story about football. It's basically a story about resiliency that is masquerading about a story about sports which is also like it a lot but honestly like the research and is ten out of ten so even if you do not like sports you do not like football you like. Don't care about the stuff it is It was such a good lens to understand that. Specifically kind of resistance in world war two america and i like this kind of book especially in this kind of moment because it distracts me from the coup and also take back. It also puts me in this place where i was like. Oh here are like historical precedent for how people are resisting and also there are so many never before told stories of resiliency and this one was so great. The other book that i read that i really enjoyed is red. Hell by hari cohen's ru and is a very anxious book. I will not lie to you if you were in like a deep if you're one of those people that you're anxious and you don't need more anxiety in your life like joan do it. But i'm anxious anxiety narratives to keep going union. Need fuel in the tank for your anxiety. Cookery morning you now. It's like so paranoid and dreamy. And it's great but this is a novel and its business story of this man Who is going through a deep midlife crisis and move from brooklyn to germany an injury. He starts being obsessed with this cop. Show called blue lives. That is just like very compelling and it's just very bleak and like you know that darwinian view of life the whole thing and it really just like unravels a lot for him like you know and because he's a writer he's just my writing have any value at all and they're just all like it like novel for right now because every question that that book is asking are kind of the same things that we are dealing with like in this moment of watching You know the like the rise of the the the fascist like insurrection
Iran set to further reduce compliance with nuclear deal
"Right here. This weekend International watchdog agency informed the U. N Security Council that Iran is advancing its nuclear program and for more we're joined on the case. CBS RING Central News Line by CBS News Foreign Affairs analyst Pamela Falk. Level of thanks as always, for joining us to what degree does this move get in the way of the bite administration's efforts to restart the 2015 Iran nuclear deal? It will get in the way and nice to speak with you, Jeff and Patti that Iran is clearly turning up the heat and that came in the form off the U. N watchdog agency, The International Atomic Energy Agency, confirming two world powers, the U. N Security Council. Another Iranian breach of the nuclear deal. Now that is that they are beginning twists, install equipment for the production of uranium metal. So this is new. And it would complicate plans for the incoming Biden administration. Which has said all through the campaign, and since they won the election that they hope to steer Iran back into compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal in the U. S got out of and bring the U. S back on board and every time Iran is Upping the ante, it becomes more difficult. What does Iran want out of this? What would it take for them to engage again in talks? Well, they've been pretty clear, Patty. What they want is the money first show us the money. What they want is the sanctions lifted first, and then they'll get back to compliance. What they say is Look, we made a deal and it was four years in the making with us, Germany, France, Britain and China, Russia and the European Union as well as Iran and what they what the deal Woz Woz, they would stop the production of their nuclear weapons. Sections of their nuclear facilities, and the world would lift the economic sanctions that prohibit all sorts of things in Iran and hurt their economy. What happened was the Trump Administration got out in 2018. They said, OK, fine will still stick with it. But then restrictions that kept going in from the United States made it much harder for the other countries, especially Western Europe to trade with Iran. And so they said, Look, you broke the deal. We're getting out. Now that it's very complicated because they're also bad, say factors on other fronts. In other words, aiding groups Hezbollah and Hamas attack Israel there they just this week tested more missiles. And what did new U. N. Ambassador of Israel Gilad aired on? Um said today was that he's calling for the security counter soul to me urgently. To craft concrete action on all of these activities, so what's happening is as they start to move back from the deal. Other countries they're starting to say, including Israel. Maybe other things should be in the deal because ballistic missiles were never rented their aid to is to these seas of Milan groups in the region. We're not in it. No, put everything back on the table, and that would make it very difficult. So they bite administration's gonna have a very tall task. You've got Secretary of State nominee Uh, Anthony Blinken ready to go on this in a very good Iran team. Where they would like to undo what the a chief said, which was, it's actually gotten more dangerous for Israel and for the world in the last four years, meaning under the Trump administration.

Conversion Killers for Photography Sites with Jan Koch
"My name is scott wine wits. And today i'm joined by my guest. Johncock host the wbz agency summit and consults businesses on hosting their own virtual events. His agency power community driven businesses that serve digital agencies to host virtual event so they can grow their loyal audience and establish thought leadership. When he's not working on the business he loves spending time with his wife and daughter were chasing his silver lab through his backyard. So welcome yon finally. We're connecting And i'm glad to have you in. This is going to be a really good a really good educational discussion for a lot of photographers around the world. Thank you so much. I haven't meets code. It's so everybody where you're from because obviously you've got a different accent than i do. So allow share a little bit. A little bit about your backstory absolutely so. I am from germany so english is not my native language bandwidth we if i mess up. Sometimes i do my best. I started using what press in. Twenty twelve's Originally where. I got in touch with his online marketing digital space and in thousand thirteen. I decided to become seven employed. And i haven't looked back since so it's the best thing ever for me. And as you mentioned we have a small family here that is supported by lend business and virtual events and stuff like that recently acquired vitual summit mastery dot com. which is the leading course for running ritual events. It's actually the cause. I took to run. Majority wants to learn how to do the the right process out to make sure that the events are successful and stuff like that. So excited about this. But i'm also very much looking forward to talk about all the good stuff. We have coming up today for sure. So you started using president who doesn't twelve. I just did a quick. Google search that means you started using wordpress inversion around three point four. Yep that's really interesting. I love hearing that. I love hearing because like every stage of wordpress has a different look in a different function that didn't exist in the past and it's always fun to see a just a date myself a bit. When i first started using wordpress was still version one and there is no gallery system so i started using extra gallery. Whatever your it was version one. that's yeah so so what. What is your your favorite thing about. Wordpress that As helped you stick with it and You know that helps keep you. You intrigued and interested in wanting to recommend it to others. Yeah that's a really good question. And they are two aspects. One is how flexible the system. It's like you can do almost everything with repes- if you know your way around. Php and my sequel pretty much. A lot of things with were president than I'm not a developer by trade. I've learned a business consultant. Study for business consultant so What i needed to rely on especially in the beginning is the community and education from the community and by diving into the community mercy myself into that and sharing what. I'm learning learning from others. That is what really made me. Stick with what press because there are so many tutorials out there. There are so many helpful people that you can just approach on twitter or stack overflow or whatever in any facebook group that you might find your own wordpress people want to help you if you post is somewhat relevant enough on your homework before that so That's the best thing ever now with the virtual events that i'm hosting i'm seeing this to speak from all across the globe just willing to volunteer to speak and to help me get the word out of what i'm doing. I think that is the best thing about many other. Cms can out from for sure. Yeah the community is definitely one of the best aspects of wordpress. The is great. But you don't get the same experience community wise that you do with software In the websites based like yes sure. There's facebook for squarespace or or wicks one up but the interactions are not nearly as as depth as you get in the wordpress based plus these dedicated events. Both what used to be in person basically barely virtual these days I can't wait to get back to the in person stuff. how many can you have any work camps. have you been to. i'm just one.

More than 200 people, including 12. Americans lost their lives in those attacks. The York Times reported in November that al Masri was shot to death on the streets of Iran today. I can confirm for the first time. His death on August 7th of last year. Al Qaeda has a new home base. It is the Islamic Republic of Iran. As a result, bin Laden's wicked creation Is poised to gain strength and capabilities. We ignore this Iran Al Qaeda nexus at our own peril.

The sea change was happening. Within the Iran Al Qaeda access. Since 2015. Iran has also given a Qaida leaders greater freedom of movement inside of Iran under their supervision.

Trump’s social media bans are raising new questions on tech regulation
"We've all heard the news This week, Some of Silicon Valley's social media giants have given President Trump the boot the moves by the likes of Twitter and Facebook and sparked a global conversation about who has the right to regulate speech and what role the big tech platforms should play in policing the Web. Rose. Lydia Manta leader covers technology for the show and joins me to talk through all this little you've been following some of the reactions to the trump banned by several social media platforms. What are you saying? Yes. Oh, Marco's you might imagine there's been a wide range of reactions to this. Some people are applauding the social media platforms for banning Trump, even though they say this should have happened long ago and then others have some reservations. So, for example, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the span problematic that it should be up to legislators of a country to decide how speech is regulated. This is a critique that we heard from officials in the UK as well as France, this idea that In a democracy. There should be clear laws and regulations around acceptable speech online and that these decisions should not be left up to tech CEOs. I mean, even here in the U. S air our conceptual limits to free speech, the classic formula of not shouting fire in a crowded theater, for example, But it is really complicated. How do other democracies regulate? What ends up on social media in the U. S. Because of US laws, social media platforms air basically immune from being held legally responsible for what users post online. But that's not the case in other parts of the world, like in Europe and Germany, in particular, leads the way on legislation that cracks down on certain types of online speech. So in 2017, they passed this law that basically says That social media companies have 24 hours to remove hate speech or face huge fines. And now lawmakers in Germany are looking at what happened in the U. S on Capitol Hill last week and saying This is a reason why we need to strengthen this law. How would they strengthen it? Basically, they want social media companies to be required to when they see cases of hate speech and other criminal activity on their platforms to take that straight to the federal police in Germany so they can investigate. This is something German lawmakers were debating, adding to the law last year. It didn't pass because of privacy concerns. But it's interesting that now because of what Happened in the U. S. Some lawmakers in Germany are saying look clearly more needs to be done to deal with online speech before it escalates to real world physical violence. So going back of that German law you mentioned the one that was passed in 2017. What is deemed illegal denying the Holocaust hate speech against minorities. And these are things that Germany outlawed after World War two. And since 2017. They've applied these rules online to France. Also tried to pass a similar law last year, cracking down on some of the same things, but that was overturned by the courts there, interestingly enough because of free speech concerns, So that's one criticism of this kind of legislation. And then another criticism is that it deals with very narrowly defined hate speech, and not with things like disinformation, conspiracy theories, all the kind of problematic stuff that experts say helped lead to the capital Riot. Last week, right? That kind of disinformation conspiracy there. So what our country's doing to tackle that that seems to be really fundamental. Just last month, the European Commission came out with what's been described as a landmark set of proposals to require social media companies not just to do more to address hate speech and disinformation, but also to be much more transparent about what they're actually doing to deal with some of that in their platforms. Now they're years away from actually becoming law and being enforced. And until then, Ah, lot of this policing is going to be left up to the private companies themselves to do even in Europe, which again is considered to be well ahead of the U. S. Clearly something the U. S is going to have to take a lot more seriously. The world's Lydia Manta leader. Thank you very much. You're welcome, Marco.

More specifically sir strumming is canned fermented herring that in and of itself doesn't sound that bad. There are many fermented foods that we eat and we have no problem with them. Yogurt sauerkraut and kimchi are all fermented foods. And no-one freaks out at the idea of eating them from inflation is an ancient form of food preparation by the breakdown. Food via microorganisms like bacteria and yeast all well and good cover. There's another process of breakdown of food via micro organisms in that is called rotting serse roaming toes the line between fermentation and rotting the history of sir strumming goes back to at least the sixteenth century when we can find the first written mention of the food however the food might be very well older than that as from. It is a pretty old process. The legend of sir strumming holds that it was accidentally created by fishermen who didn't have enough salt to preserve their catch. They use less salt than normal and sold their fish to some locals and finland salt is used to inhibit microbial growth and to stop the fish from rotting. When the fishermen returned they thought the locals would be mad at them for selling them fish. That rotted instead. They love the product and wanted more of it. The fishermen tried the fish themselves and thus stroming was born today sir. Strumming is prepared. In purchasing a can while in the can the fermentation process continues fermentation results in the release of gases which means at the can will often be bulging due to high pressure inside the can the fermentation of the fish in the can result in the single most unique quality of sir strumming the smell in two thousand and two japanese study found it to be the worst smelling food in the world. The smell is so bad that it has become legendary. it's been described as rotten eggs. A dead body a dirty diaper and raw sewage but the truth is there are so few things you can really compare it to because nothing else smells quite so bad. The smell is what's made the product famous. And if it weren't for the smell it would be about as controversial as pickled herring children in sweden have been known to open a can of sir stroming school so they could get out of class. Airlines will not allow people to carry sir strumming on flights because of the high pressure in the can in the low pressure in the cabin the higher pressure differential can result in some cans rupturing spewing the smelly liquid onto the plane and. It isn't as if you can leave a plane while it's flying or open a window most famously in one thousand nine hundred one a landlord. Germany evicted attendant because they spilled a can of sir strumming in the building stairwell german laws. Make it very hard to evict people. When the eviction came to trial the landlords defense consisted of opening up a can in the courtroom. The judge have experienced the overwhelming odor ruled in favor of the landlord. If you search for sir strumming online you'll find dozens and dozens of reaction videos of people opening up the cans and trying to eat the contents. The videos mainly consists of gigging wrenching and sometimes vomiting the problem. According to the sir strumming experts is that they're eating at wrong for starters. You never want to open a canister stroming indoors for reasons which i think of established by now. Ideally you want to open the can when submerged in water that will prevent the liquid inside from spraying all over the place when it's opened alternatively you could open it while it's enclosed in a plastic bag once the liquid has been drain. You don't eat it straight from the can the herring which is put in the can. Hasn't been gutted or deboned. You need to do that. I then the traditional way of meaning it is with a swedish flat bread called tune broad along with potatoes onions and sour cream. It's usually eaten as sort of small sandwich. I've actually had the experience of trying some sir strumming and it really doesn't taste as bad as it smells ranted given that it's the worst smelling food in the world. That's a pretty low bar but it isn't bad so long as it prepared properly if you really want the full sir strumming experience. I'd have to suggest you visit the island of von in sweden's high coast. It is a center of herring fishing and it's considered. The mecca for strumming. August is considered the best season enforcers strumming. Because it's in the middle of the summer. It's also one of the best times to visit ov- on regardless the main day for eating it is the third thursday of august also known as sir strumming day. Which is the day which by royal decree you used to be able to start selling strumming. If you're there you might be able to meet ruben. Matteson who is the self proclaimed king of sir strumming. He was the person who actually served me my first serve strumming one. Is it von back in two thousand fourteen. He was involved in opening a twenty five year old. Ken of sir strumming which was found in an abandoned cabin in norway. Having been outside for a quarter century the can was quite rusted. And due to twenty five years of fermentation it was bulging a lot. The contents of the container were mostly liquid. What solid material. That did come out. Didn't really look anything.

"Morning. We drove to tiny town in Germany. Full of cows called czar back. That's where we broke a milk. Vending ending machine built vending machine their unfortunate accident but we also got to meet a man named use straighter. Can I just say I'm a little disappointed that you're wearing sandals but they're not berkinstocks just uses sandals because my feet stretching back in two thousand and five solar panel seemed like kind. NFL Lousy deal. They were inefficient and expensive. But then used heard about Hans Yossef's feed in tariff. The deal was if used put up solar panels. He could sell that solar electricity back to the grid and the government would guarantee him a price very high price of fifty cents per kilowatt Watt Hour for twenty years the solar panels would more than pay for themselves so use started putting them up. How many panels do you have in total whole surtee? Eighty two. You've so many you've lost count. US takes US inside his house and pulls up this very colorful solar electricity spreadsheet. Does the company gives you this or you keep no no I did. I did all of this yourself. Yeah sure this is elaborate. According according to use numbers he makes about thirty five hundred euros per year selling solar electricity. Back to the grid. He is more than paid off solar panels again. The way this works is isn't some government. Subsidy everybody's electricity bill is going to go up a little bit so that somebody like used can get this very very high guaranteed price for his solar electricity. So if you WANNA think about who is really paying for this. It's people who are not taking advantage of feed in tariff who are not putting up solar panels. Were you one of the first people in your neighborhood to put the panels on. Yes I think so. Yeah and did you look at your neighbors and think Suckers like you're paying meal. No no no no. I've been thinking why don't you do it as in. You should put your own panels up and also get the money like me. We should mention that use use gets very high guaranteed price because he put his panels up fifteen years ago back when the technology was way more expensive. Somebody putting panels up today. It would lower guaranteed price but either way the cost of the panels gets covered. And that is the beauty of the design of the feed in tariff it turns renewable energy from a luxury item into a solid investment. It transforms the solar curious into full on solar freaks jess again full on solar solar freak and feed in tariff originator. Hans Llosa fell so. When did this become a success story in Germany? How did you see it become accepted and successful talk? We could see a lot of news penance. You should drive INS OUSEBA value. You will see one village after the others. The HALF OF SUV who've tops only solar who've tops in this very very good and sure enough. We saw his big idea at work all over the country and it's not just solar panels. Lots of things are incentivized by the feed in tariff wind turbines biomass plants and yes solar panels. So many solar panel's you're the solar freak you would drive around in. It's like new solar freak. Another solar freak. Yes we have zo plenty zoloft weeks. But I'm a ahead of the king. Solar Hunt Yo.

"Doing with us. Yeah I guess the ideas you collect everything that you can so now you know in the US solar panels. There are much less expensive than they were ten years ago. And you know we don't live in the sunniest part of America. But it's like if you live in Phoenix right and get cheap solar panels. You've really in good shape. Yeah Germany really in a lot of ways eight the cost for the rest of the world to have to have that capacity so it was anything like particularly surprising that that you picked up here that that people should look out for. I guess in general I was impressed. Or maybe a little surprised by by the practicality of the Environmental Movement in Germany that the guy behind this big idea his name is Hans. IOS fell one of the things he said to us. In the course of our interviews is that it can't just be a movement if we're going to really make change. We need to have political regulations. So you know. Germany has the Green Party. This guy is a member of the Green Green Party and a as of nineteen ninety eight got into power on the federal level and really took their moment and passed environmental legislation and But they also you know one of the issues about this idea. Is that some German companies got exemptions from the feed in tariff at the beginning so they wouldn't you have to pay such a high cost of trinity so companies that make like aluminum are things that we're electric is their biggest costs So this guy. Hey Mr fell was like it's fine. We're going to give them exemptions because this regulation will not succeed in Germany if we create problems for the biggest industries and and I thought that was really interesting. I don't I'm not as tapped into the environmental movement in the United States. But I felt like it was just a very practical approach to due to creating policy. Yeah and they were willing to accept a lot of I guess technically like horizontal inequities in which like similar situations were not necessarily zoe treated similarly just because they really wanted to get it done right and so if people could say well. You're going to crush the aluminum industry. It wouldn't gotten done so there's no reason really to exempt them right. I mean I think the idea is like they won't be able to compete globally than they'll lobby be against the so one of the problems with this laws that now. A lot of other companies have lobbied to get exemptions who he believes doesn't in the long right like this is not going to be the policy framework right the tariff that that's high and with so many exemptions but it but it sort of jump started change and and then I used to this come in in the in the Red Green Colossians nineteen ninety eight. Yeah but so which survived across a bunch of different political regimes. It did it got amended. And that's one of the reasons why the surcharge on People's electricity bills has gone out so this man hair fell did not not have things to say about uncle mark and and the CD you but yes it did survive in some form I mean and that's quite different from I. The German party system is less polar their way less polarized. So so this kind of thing sticks I well that sounds great You know I think people are really going to like this episode. There's been a lot of demand from listeners. For more climate environmental content is one of the most important stories that's played out in the world. I and whole great series looking at sort of models for policy. That's here thank you so much by giving a lesson Hobbit House Jillian. This is really cute. Grass all over this habit house is perched on a hill a tiny town in northern Bavaria. Germany picture like a like a little fairy tale log cabin yeah. They're these flower boxes on every window. It's literally built into the side of a hill. The roof is like covered in grass. It's so good to Guten tag. Guten tag yes. This is in this little Hobbit House House.

It's a big claim. Yeah but but here's out here. Germany used to get nearly all of its energy energy from fossil fuels or nuclear power. But as of last year it was getting almost half of its energy from renewables like solar and wind and look Germany. Isn't it perfect with regards to green energy. It is a country that still loves its coal shifting to nearly half renewables is huge and it is arguably ably because of Hans. llosa fell the solar panels on his roof. gave him an idea that I changed his tiny town.

"So knows her little brother when she talks about her parents taking a Harasser so she ended up staying back because she wanted to be with her friends or she wasn't taking what was going on seriously And that was when she got picked up by the Gestapo. They came to the House to look for Migrate Grandfather and they found her just like an unlucky break and they arrested her and So she was around fourteen and that was when she was taken to the concentration camp was from staying at the house she's being deliberately dodgy and specifically not using the word concentration camp. She's she's she's she's being purposefully. Vague I think here And then she was in the camp for we don't know how long again Super Dodgy Dodgy And then she was eventually rescued by someone. Who worked with Bob Papa in the French Resistance But she was there long enough for for a lot of bad things to happen. I will say that so then when the war was over what what happened I went to work and then lamarcus office and has so after the war you went to work office. It was a chaplain's office. I did some writing and the boys would come in and I mean the American for use commend and write down their complaints. This talking and over you must be sixty. Okay Seventeen Eh.

"germany" Discussed on Bad With Money with Gaby Dunn
"Is bad with money. Okay guys my German is shit. I'm sorry my German is Shite. You know that's British. SHH SHH SHH ASS. I don't know I'm just looking at a script I. I don't know how you pronounce that as you can tell. I don't know much about Germany and there's a very good reason for that and we'll get to it very soon. I also don't know anything about how Germans think about money but I did find this old saying saying please bear with me guilt. -stincts nist or my producer. Found it when looking into Germany's attitudes about money. Thank you to Mika guilt. Guild stink nuked according to Google translate. It means cashed on stink. Generally Germans are pretty wary of getting into debt. They don't understand why you'd put a payment on a credit card why US quote unquote money. You don't have thank you Google for this information. This episode is not sponsored by Google. I guess all of that makes sense right if you can see what you're spending then you're not spending what you don't have plus many German stores. Merchants still only accept cash. That strikes strikes me is pretty different from the US where credit cards and paying by tapping your phone reign supreme. Okay so before we jump into this. Let me just say you and I are on this journey together of being open minded of exposing ourselves to the money realities and cultures around the world. You're with me as I genuinely consider. If one of these countries could be place I could live one day so I need to share something really really personal with you regarding this episode. I do not like Germany. In fact I'm afraid of Germany. I do not fuck with Germany. I do not want to do this episode. I have never visited Germany. I don't want to. I have have an adverse reaction to even hearing the word Germany. This might seem strange. But it's because I'm the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors and the idea of ever going to Germany scares the shit out of me. I don't know what I think's going to happen. I that it's a trick. I'm not sure so we're GONNA do this because I truly believe that. It's important to see people. People time has passed. We have to be open minded even when it scares you. You know maybe especially it's important to be open minded when it scares you. Oh and I've heard from many. Many people have told my fear to over the years. The Germany's actually really great about acknowledging. Its past and making amends in a way that the US has not. I've been about the atrocities. It has committed so my bias against Germany France have said should be looked at in conjunction with how the US ignores the Japanese internment camps or Slavery Korea or its history of genocide of indigenous peoples. You're not gonNA find a country that doesn't have a bad pass rate. Germany has won all kinds of places in the world have them but Germany mini supposedly is a great example of growing and learning and taking responsibility. So I have been talked into doing this episode here we go Mukalla Collar reporter. That's based in Berlin. And I just WanNa get some basics about what Germany's like today and how many works there now Hi Jill this is Gabby Hi Gabby how are you. I'm good nice to meet you. I want I want you to introduce yourself in until my audience a little bit about what you do and where you're located okay so I'm originally from Ireland. Didn't and I'll be living in Germany for about ten years. Now I've been a correspondent for a couple of places including courts which is American announced working for Yahoo Finance UK. I've lived in in Amsterdam London China and but most of the last ten years has been in Germany in Berlin right in Berlin. Absolutely I haven't actually lived in any other. I cities in Germany. So I'm pretty much berliner by now so we found this saying geld sting sniffed and I know that it's like an older the people saying If I even said it right but have you. Have you heard that phrase since you've been living in Germany do know what it means. I noted means because ago get stink. Meek means money doesn't stink basically and I had never heard so I asked my German partner if he had heard it. He said it's something that he heard his. His Grandmother Sang and then a little research last week. And I found out that it actually comes from Latin. And there's a version of English. It's Pecunia non Arlette in Latin And it means money doesn't stink which comes from this emperor who's called Vis Passion and in seventy ad he started taxing basically the public toilets in ancient Rome and because like they used urine for everything those days they made in those days. They made toothpaste with it. They washed their clothes with. Yeah because they is extracted ammonia so he's local Gandhi access. This is a great source of revenue and his son was Kinda gross out his son Titus and was like No do you have to do that. And he grabbed a whole bunch of money and said smell. This money doesn't smell basically the meaning. Is that statement German. My money's as good as is yours like it doesn't really matter where it comes from in the UK we would say money talks. Yeah or yeah or like my money's as good as yours I've heard in the US. Meaning it doesn't matter where I got. It doesn't matter if it's fifty dollars from a poor person or fifty dollars from a rich person or whatever exactly but I think in Germany takes on an even another layer of meaning because Germans love cash like they really love cash they I think another interesting saying about Germans and debt is the word for debt which is shoot S. C. H. U. L. D. is also the word for gift really. What's that about I? We know it's. It's very interesting literally same word and in a way the German kind of view or attitude has has like for a long time being well. If you're in debt done something bad kind of debt is seen as a bad thing. Almost like there's element of shame so I can kind of see. How Shield can you know? Crossover both those things. It's part of as part of the German attitude to having a ready catch not living on credit so Germany most people use cash. They don't want to get in they don't want to pay for anything that they can't like quote unquote afford. I mean in America if you're in debt they people blame you for sure but in Germany. It's like you have no excuse like there. You should not be in debt at all. It is seen as like. You're pretty bad at managing your money. So but I think to understand Germans attitude to money. It's like okay so there in generally. It's a glass half empty situation. So they're being quite pessimistic mystic because they've been burnt by history time and time again First World War they bought were told to buy war bonds than Germany lost the war. They lost all their money. Money Republic in nineteen twenties which the inflation was about a trillion percent. They lost all their money again. Then along came. Hitler told everyone to buy war bonds and to put down payments on like Volkswagen. Beetles people never cars at course and lost stolen money again. So it wasn't until the fifties when the what's called the shots lindor economic miracle with Germany was able to rebuild it sales by then people are like. I want to have my money in cash where I can see it. Oh so everyone's super paranoid Gajah. It's insensible in other ways It's super paranoid. Actually and then of course that is all the trauma because in East Germany mini. So you know. Obviously Germany was split into east and West after the after the Second World War for thirty years. All of those people the East Germans were living under communism so when the country united they didn't have a clue how to. How do you say how to cope in the cut and thrust of capitalism? You know they had jobs for life under the Socialist government and they actually have quite a bit of savings East Germans because there was nothing really spend money on. You couldn't go on foreign trips or rush you couldn't buy cars and stuff so but still. I mean reuniting these two people who had different attitudes to how to make money has been really really difficult. I think to understand a German the German money you have to understand that the last hundred years has been like like super traumatic. Your imagine I mean so. Is it just a culture of frugality even from East Germany to West Germany.

The dutch were better and that's where we'll showcase in the final score.

"The other one is the diesel crisis and the second Han diesel market in Germany's pretty much collapsed. The cities in Germany themselves seem not take these calls anymore on that was a huge part of the most important export industry. They have which is Aldo's. So if you these Faulk towards together, I think it suggests that you know, they might not think that the models fundamentally changing, but it is whether they like, not we'll wait let me put that to you. We'll take the first part of what Mark said, which is that Germany's sort of curious ability to run a primary surplus over the last several years, and that one of the concerns, you know, we're going to talk about the possibility of German downturn in a second. But one of their concerns is that they won't be able to run this surplus anymore. And so everybody. Outside of Germany looks at that. And thinks that's insane. Why when you have these infrastructure spending needs why when you have the possibility of a slowdown looming? Would you be concerned about maintaining your point eight percent of primary surplus is that going to change is there any sign that that thinking will change in Germany. There is no real sign of that thinking is changing in Germany, the easiest place to look would be the coalition agreement between the two major parties. There was going to be a change in the finance ministry. Olaf Scholtz was going to come in wolf gun show, though is going to leave after eight long years and many people thought, well, maybe this time we'll see a difference in policy and not only to the coalition agreement signal. No such difference. The Schultz policies seem to me indistinguishable from those of his predecessor. So, you know, we're still in a situation now where Germany's capital stock is actually less in absolute terms than it wasn't two thousand seven despite an economy this. Grown thirty percent during that time. It's a shocking policy combination. But it definitely does goose exports. Well, I mean is it fair to say that you can export your way out of problems that you can spend your way out of problems. And so Germany sort of looking with concern at the possibility of continuing to export. But not at all considering the alternative will somebody somewhere must be considering it because it's a fairly simple calculation. I mean every national government Germany's no different grows from a combination of three things, it's domestic consumption. It's domestic investment and its net trade and Germany has essentially been depressing. The first two for fifteen years now. And therefore, it has to by definition lean on the third then the Chinese were with him in this for a long time, but the Chinese of decided a decade ago that this is not a viable long term strategy for a number of reasons the politics of it are incredibly difficult to change both in China, and they would be Germany, Germany, tried to change it. So I don't want to imply that as easy. But it is pretty straightforward. What the Germans are doing is essentially depressing. The amount of national income that goes to to go so wage and salary earners. And at the same time running a big budget surplus, which is now one point seven five percent of GDP. And since they consistently underestimate their tax take every year, they end up with one of these UCS. We did it again stories almost every every year. So we end up with you know, a country that not an it's private households. But in his business corporate sector, and in the government sector running these big savings surpluses. And as a consequence we just don't have the demand the capacity to purchase among the sort of rank and file Germans. And of course, it is a political problem. People are unhappy about it angry about it. But I don't see a lot of indications from either of the major parties that they're seriously rethinking this. So when I took my current job, I was supposed to go work in the German finance ministry. My only job is going to be to say. Really unpopular things. Like, why don't you guys actually spend more or why don't you invest more? It would steer economy. It.

"What's up with Germany. I think so often you see a team that has had as much success as Germany and had in a in a length of time, and nobody comes into changing thing to in it up to keep it going. Even if you looked at the sun, we were talking about this game when when the side was announced, what is. Be loved change from the team that the did so poorly in the World Cup. It's really the same squad at some stage. You gotta make some changes in. There's obviously some reasons why they're not getting the results and something's got to change. And if you'll be love, doesn't change it quickly. It's going to be him that's going to be the person. I mean, how close did we do that? It seems like he's got an awfully long leash. It doesn't seem to be that the German federation is going to have some kind of quick trigger reaction here. They certainly didn't have to the World Cup. They didn't, and I think they were giving him the benefit outs, descent, hey, maybe this is a little blip. We have good players we can get this right. Well, the haven't got it, right. They do have good players and we know they have a good crop of young players as well, because it confederation Cup, two years ago. Everybody rolled everybody with their under twenty three's. So you would think that there would be these young players coming through and they'd be given the opportunities? Well, that hasn't been the case in. It's one. Kind of losing having a blip. But when you get rolled up by your kind of your biggest rival in the Netherlands, then it's, there's going to be some pressure at home. You say, I don't know if you if you're watching the game, the reaction in the German fans after the game, just kind of screaming and throwing stuff, and they're not accustomed to this. Oh, well, I think it'd been sixteen years. Yeah, two thousand two. Yeah, you're right. The last time that the Dutch beat Germany. Yeah. So it's it's not very happy German fans. What about specifically the case of LeRoy son? This is a guy who's left out of the World Cup left out of the starting eleven for this match. What am I missing? Well, I I don't think we really know. They're obviously is something when he goes into the German squad that just rubbed Yogi loved the wrong way. And he doesn't see him as the team guy or the or the. You, it's kind of one of those situations that you know there's something going on behind the scenes. It's not just ability. It's not just planning and also there's always a little bit too. I think when you're a young player and you left Germany early, it's a little bit of, well, we're, you're, you're kind of over there. We're not really paying much attention to you, but there's something definitely going on behind the scenes, Germany right now, last place in their group. Could you see them getting relegated? Could you see them leave beat group Bill, let's be honest. No, but but the the World Cup winners. If you're last, you're down. Well, that's a reality for Germany, right? Thought we'd be saying that, but that's part of this kind of format with only three teams in when you put a lot of good teams together. Look, we know Holland is struggled in the last few years. We know that they haven't been the team that we've expected. But at the same time, we know they always have a group of talented players coming through, and it's just a matter of time before they get. Going again, you come across France side that just won the World Cup. You then have a German side that had won the previous World Cup, but now a struggling to try to figure out that next new identity. And this is what happens. You find yourself in a little rebuilding situation, and you find yourself relegated from the nation's league group. I know the match maybe wasn't three, nothing if you watched all ninety minutes of it, but the Dutch back, no. What did you say that you say it south or Tatum because even three, nothing win against Germany. Nah, it's a, it's a one, nothing win against Germany until injury time Germany's throwing numbers forward, and Germany should have at least found an equaliser after the Dutch wet one..
