"Watch a foreign film with subtitles. Makes you a bad racist person and they wanted to lecture you on that as well. Now what does this have to do with anything. Well it has to the President of the election in twenty twenty so much of the polling out there has long contemplated a trump biden. uh-huh race. A now you either get a trump Bloomberg race or a trump Bernie sanders race. A Bloomberg race would be interested in that Bloomberg Bloomberg is an aloof out of touch smug liberal who ran in New York City and somehow things running in New York City and being a billionaire can translate in this country into being president of the United States. I gotTa tell you something about a lot of billionaires a lot of rich people. I know one day I want to to be a multimillionaire. I want to be smug rich person but I have a wife and two kids who keep me humble and we live in Macon Georgia Zsa which there are not a bunch of multimillionaires in in making or billionaires and making it keeps you humble when you live in New York City among the billionaire and multimillionaire elite you Kinda grow detached from the rest of the public where they can ask you a question like how much does a gal because you know. Oh I can't tell you how much a gallon of milk cost all honesty's it several dollars. I was at public yesterday. Buddy by the way by the way a shout out to my local Publix. They heard me me on this year program talking about not being able because we're real southerners in my house. And so we need the big tubs of Crisco to make biscuits and fried chicken and at the public. You only get the rich people little light crisco where they're like. ooh Trans Fat. We can't have that now. It's not transplanted. It's just the white people shortening the white people shortening is like half the size of the southern people shortening well the public's near my house now has the giant vats of shortening. All of the all of the the rich people they walk past. They're aghast that someone actually makes a shortage. It's for me in my fat behind and the biscuits of buttermilk biscuits my wife and kid make in the shortening shortening in the pie crust I need the Big Tub shorting and praise God public. Save me I don't have to go to the Kroger. Thinks it's a Walmart and get lost trying to find shortening and I can just go to the public's now thank you publish. They did it because they heard me talking about it on this program nonetheless. I digress. The thing here is these people. I I mean Mayor Bloomberg wants to lecture you on if he knew the size tubs. CRISCO that I get from the store. He would be appalled and have me thrown in jail. This is a man who decided decided to ban the big Gulp in New York. And you get all these rich people together and the rich people are weird man. y'All I know rich people. Well I know a couple of billionaires in fact I know a billionaire who owns an entire floor of a skyscraper New York City and it's his home and he can look down there and he's a wonderful wonderful person and he's self made so he still has that level of connection but you also kind of know that he stopped really connected anymore because he can leave his house and go out a back entrance or a black sedan or SUV. PICKS HIM UP. Intake seem to an airport in Westchester. New York where he can get on a plane that is his plane and he could fly to his other house. He doesn't have to go through even the clear line at at Laguardia to mingle with the average person. Now you get you get Bloomberg Berg out there doing this. I can't tell you what the price of a gallon. Milk is several dollars and I bought what I actually bought two gallons the other day. Why because they don't expire until the twenty four th and I got two kids who were just consuming? I'm at the point now where I gotta buy two loaves of bread and two gallons of milk every week. 'cause I got an eleven year old and a fourteen year old who were starting to eat me out of house and home. The billionaire has no idea because he's got a maid and a cook to take care of this forum and Laura Newton carbs. He's got a Dietitian in there and he gets out on the campaign trail when he tries to pretend to be an ordinary person. And do you know for the love of God. You know what the billionaire does on the campaign trail to make themselves look ordinary. They go out. And and what's the first thing they buy boots because you know those ordinary people out in the countryside they wear our boots and they refer to them as poop kickers but they don't say poop and as as Rick Perry one time pointed out to me you can tell hell that these people have newly found that their their country nece because their boots have no S- cuffs as rick. Perry says never trust them to wear boots without scarfs. 'cause they've gone out and they've gone and gotten their slick boots and inevitably at some Swiss brand not a Texas brand and then they get out on the campaign trail and they say the most bizarre things like this morning over my keen y and chicken Omelette. We were discussing discussing how you people not. y'All you people are falling behind in the trump economy. For example. Did you know do that. You may have to go work at some store. Called DILLARD's where they sell clothes. And if you really wanted to make money money you would go to Bergdorf Goodman in New York City to make money instead of someplace called Dha large. They have no idea what they're talking about. And they try their best relate to you and do you know how else they relate to you. They go to fast food restaurants and they order food you know who authentically orders fast food. DONALD TRUMP DONALD. I love fast food. Remember the outrage of the media when Donald Trump put in a bought fast food from Burger King. McDonald's Wendy's Domino's for the the basketball players who were are coming to the White House. They were horrified by this. My Lord Mike Bloomberg the thought of going to a fast food restaurant and seeing all you can drink coca cola products out there. You have direct access to the vending machine and a big gulp up. The man's going to pass out and yet the Democrats are now convinced it because Biden is fitting. Say what you will. Without the Joe Biden Joe. Pine has an incredible story. His wife and child died in a fiery car wreck he remarried Jill Biden. She raised his children passes as her own. He's got a tragic story. His is not really a story privilege although he basically was raised by the wolves of the Senate Ted Kennedy in Chris Dodd but it but he's got a story that relates to people Bloomberg can give you the The all you all you can handle man of the people raised himself. Oh football restricts although Alexandro Cortez tells us we can actually do that but but Bloomberg has the story that's relatable but Bloomberg gets on his his private jet every weekend and he goes to his private island in the Bahamas that's so relatable to people. Now listen people who don't relate can get elected let. Let's let's stop kid ourselves. People who can't relate actually can't get elected which is Kinda funny is that Donald Trump actually connects to people and the Democrats are convinced. He's not actually relatable you. Here's from Democrats all the time they think you Hickson rubes who like Donald Trump are being fooled by this guy. Who's just doing his impression of you that know? DONALD TRUMP ELLISON I. I've been in the man's office. The man really has a thing for windies. He really has thing for windies and the left is convinced. It's all an an actor to be a man of the people thing that Donald trump really can't relate to you know he actually can because Donald Trump has always prided himself in being this kind of man of the people in New York. He built the ice rink and stuff. What would a Bloomberg New Bloomberg made billions and God bless him? He made billions. He's not a bad man for making billions. It's just now put himself in a bubble where he cannot relate to anyone one he goes out and sees pizza at the county fair and he needs a fork knife to eat. The pizza does know full full the crust except they told him this so he he comes in and he makes a big deal about knowing how to fold the crust and he folds the crescent can actually eat it because yet figure out how to put it in his mouth because he doesn't have the of the knife and it kind of shows that he's all he's is all made up. Can you imagine Mike Bloomberg. I think that's why he skipped Iowa. He did not want to go to Ames Iowa and have the fried twinkie after banning fast food in New New York City. Can you imagine Mike Bloomberg getting a fried twinkie on a sticker. Fried the three musketeers bar. And what on Earth you would do with it. He would start lecturing the people pull on how they're GONNA die of heart disease and how he was going to ban it and he would have lost Iowa so he can campaign in California because he can relate to the elite in in California he can actually say keen Wa. I mean I look at it as like this. Looks like it's pronounced. qui- Noah no no it's keen Wa. It's pronounced quite Noah it is Q. U. I you know a keen Wa- my butt in Kale Kale and I guess. If you like. King John Cale. My Bloomberg is going to be the candidate for you. But they lectures at the Oscars about how world budgets and rubes. Because we don't WanNa read while we watch a movie because a subtitles. They lecture us on Carbon Neutrality while they get on their airplanes and fly away and now they wanna you tell us that we need to vote for some person who's completely out of touch with the American experience in the American people but oh my God he's a self made man and we should all like self made men and you know we do like self made men but I got plenty of billionaire friends. who were self made men who have no relationship to me in the world around? It's just bizarre and these people don't don't need to set public policy but they WANNA get trump they wanna be trump they think Bloomberg's got the billion speed trump. But but does he actually have what it takes because Mike Bloomberg can run slick ad campaign the Bernie Sanders can run.

"HMO. Do you really never remember your dreams. Yeah pretty much. There was a time back in my twenties where I tried to do lucid dreaming where like you're aware air of your your own dreaming but didn't really work so much and ever since yeah I go to sleep. I wake up and that's that and actually that's what made Rogers worked so interesting to me because as someone who doesn't think about dreaming doesn't talk about dreaming I think it's really cool to have this framework to understand how potentially humanity thinks talks about dreaming and so I can see using these six different ways of exploring dreaming and in a different way for myself I would you do dream at all. I do names. I actively try to remember my dreams I do but it's often like like me reflecting alone in the morning like Oh what what was that about. you know an often in the US here about things personal dream diaries or things like I don't don't have a dream diary but it's very individual but what I found really interesting is in other cultural communities. Talking about dreams is a social practice desk. It's an everyday practice where it's actually part of everyday life. I think that's really interesting and maybe if we had more of that here. You might remember your dreams. That's a good point but maybe that's actually what this podcast is doing. It's definitely made me think and talk about dreaming and it's entering into a conversation right. What if we continue the conversation. What do you think I think that'd be great. We could maybe continue it with an even bigger group. Yeah like our listeners listeners. We'd love to hear from you. What are your experiences of dreaming. Do you think dreams are nonsense or something out.

"So that was a man named Roger Lohan and he was talking about an experience that he had years ago in in Papua. New Guinea right hit a really scary dream. I got that much but there's something else going on here. Too right like Roger is the white guy like me and typically in our white Euro American culture adults aren't that afraid of ghosts but why I I mean if you have a terrifying dream and it feels real. Why culturally do we talk ourselves down and say it's just a dream our ideas about out. These things are shaped by people like Carl Young. He's one of the most influential European psychologists of all time so go that you mean analysis have for working with streams is basically a goal of connecting who we are consciously with that other side of ourselves. Sit were not familiar with the unconscious side. This is Laura Newton. She's a union analyst who interpret purpose streams and authored a book on brother sister relationships. We called Laura to get a better understanding of how someone like. Roger would normally interpret the dream. He described earlier. There seems to be some sort of conflict going on in his sake the conflict between his conscious position and information and that possibly got stirred up from the work that he was doing in New Guinea. The train is not about spirits in the US Ivano people to dream about a spirit in his own sake. What I'm hearing is that for Laura and the Union School of thought this dream is about Rogers was conscious and unconscious minds. That's one interpretation based on a European cultural context but what I wonder tip is why was rogers dreams so frightening in for him which brings me to even bigger question. Why do we dream what we dream. I actually know the perfect person to ask. I'm Jen. I'm chip and we're the hosts of Sapiens a podcast for everything human. What makes us human age of discovery crazy on the Internet sex while well. You're dreaming. Termite tastes like what makes us human. Let's say.

"Coming up next. We hear from an opposition later in the Democratic Republic of Congo. But first throughout two thousand eighteen migrants have continued to make the perilous crossing the Mediterranean to Europe. But they've been finding it increasingly difficult to find sanctuary their favorite destination has been Italy. But the new government there has been refusing them entry while many rescue ships themselves have had their licenses revoked, and so it is that a ship carrying three hundred migrants is just being given permission to dock in the Spanish porta cravey's of being turned away by the Italian and Maltese authorizes. The open arms vessel is run by a Spanish, migrant charity. Laura Newton is the spokesperson was on the dockside. There are three hundred eleven persons that we rescued ads high seas just week ago in three these lands Robert votes in real danger. And are they may not they women. There are many. Hundred uncertainty nine minus. Some women also men's that are like nineteen different. Nationalities. Most of them are from me. And I understand that one of the female passages gave birth on the boat gave birth right before she goes in the boats of Libya, so when we rescued the boat the baby had the day, we have to ask for an evacuation because due to the conditions on board and the hypothermia of the baby they have to be evacuated to Malta, and you tried to get into Italian ports who tried to get into Maltese sports. Yeah. We asked for permission to disembark in all the countries around. We also ask for boards in Tunis following the instructions of the Spanish authorities Martha said, no, Greece said, no the rest FRANZ cetera. Didn't even answer on so Spanish authorities told us I'm hours later that week. Could have four the Spanish waters. What happens to the passengers? Now, our work is to save their lives. Now, once they are they are in the hands of the Spanish authorities on the different NGOs. And so these people will be says on day may ask for asylum. You know, authorities will decide in the end which process they can follow. Do you expect it to become more difficult in twenty nine? Eighteen to find countries that a winning to take in migrants, whom you rescued at sea ES, of course, the ever Lucien of them need to rein in rescues in these last two years, I've been going to criminalization Natoli of the migrants on the people. But also of the organizations that are working there. But the fact is that there are not organization, but just like two or three and two years ago there were like us, and obviously now after Salvini is the new interior minister you need to and decided to close that makes things even more difficult even in margin. So obviously is going to be the worst than wolves. That was Laura land Nusa. You're listening to NewsHour from the BBC. I'm Jillian Marshall. Sunday's elections in the mineral rich, but dirt poor Democratic Republic of Congo meant to lead to the first peaceful transition of power in the country since independence in one thousand nine hundred sixty but that's looking increasingly unlikely with the elections marred by delays clashes and fears of polling day chaos. The elections should have been held intuitive sixteen but the incumbent Joseph Kabila refused to stand on since when they're being further postponements send an announcement this week three areas of the country would not be voting because of conflict and an outbreak of Ebola. President Kabila says it's justified the low has catered for such issues. So they let commission has as far as I'm concerned been doing everything according to the book. And I don't think that the the major issues as far as the one point something million. What does that you're talking about the government decided to expel the European Union's ambassador in relation in retaliation rather for sanctions against number of officials, including Mr. Kabila's handpicked successor, Emmanuel Ramazani, sugary another leader over regional African grouping is costing doubt on whether the actions will be free and fair modify you Lou is one of the leading opposition candidates, and he's called a general strike today. Asked him why Chaz? To support may people of you'd be. Thimble because. Right to vote and no one nobody can come just get rid of the election on the door serious. Because I was there myself, I compete and some of those candidates come. The market is going to church people to walk. Why? No because of Ebola because of security to get rid of election in that we think that is because they know that those people my supporters, and they want to reduce my weight all over the country. So you don't accept the official reason for per spawning elections in the east of the country, namely because of conflict and A Bola. You say it is to deny opposition voters the right to vote. That's true. That's true. Because there is. It's obvious that they want to reduce my weight everywhere in country, even Johnson. Reduce or remove twenty percent of the vote. So so sorry, you are saying that the election. Authorities are reducing the number of polling stations all over the Democratic Republic of Congo where the opposition has strong support. That's right. You can see. Use already one thousand nine hundred polling stations. In some of the areas, even the sentence de treatment for people to vote, and it's a it's a mess. It complete miss the prevailing. It kills. The nation according to the law. So will you accept the outcome of these elections? The discussion because. Be flawless. You know, the process is a flawless. I think nobody contests do dessert. What we are saying we wanted the truth to come out from election. We don't want someone. That's they cooked today. And then they become and the guy is a is a winner we expecting defer. And the transparent election, what's at stake in this election. Do you think? We yesterday ran a report on the program from the rural areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo and people there seem to think that nothing would change who ever won this election. No. This is not true thing will change you cannot compare myself to Kabila having clear vision, I know where I want this country. I won the rule of law. We have to have the rule of law in this country. We are big comprehensive program to do this country want Google to Mujuru to change its fist. Martin viola leading opposition presidential candidate in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the BBC's Lewis spoke to me a short while ago from the capital Kinshasa. The electoral commission who is that is organizing these elections and the government President Joseph Kabila have repeatedly said even yesterday that these elections will go ahead, and they are on Sunday. And that they are confident that everything will be in place for these elections to take place. It is true that there has been violence on the campaign trail, I especially in the last week. There was a number of incidents during some of the opposition rallies. Were about a dozen people were injured some reportedly killed during clashes between opposition supporters, and the police the has been there has been a number of incidents and concerns around these elections around the campaign and around the organization, the logistical organization of these elections, and in the east of the country in those areas where voting has been postponed all those areas where the opposition could expect. To pick up votes. Yes, they all widely seen as being opposition strongholds. These three locations in the east and the other locations the fourth location in the west of the country. There was a number of very tasks yesterday in the east of the country, effectively one point two million voters have been told that they weren't able to participate on the vote. And I think more protests can be expected in the next twenty four hours, and the reason that they're they're they all these these tensions, and these these these concerns from the population is that the electoral commission has said that the very. In those areas because of exceptional second stances, citing the ongoing outbreak an insecurity in those areas. But the timing of this decision is a bit odd because the country has been grappling with this Ebola outbreak since August with authorities have said repeatedly that the elections would not interfere with the with your response. They were planning to have washed dispenses in front of polling stations, and insecurity is an issue in in some of these locations, but it's also a concern in many other parts of the country where the very is going ahead on Sunday. So that is why this decision is seen as being politically motivated for for these reasons. Yes. I'm very very briefly. Louise, a lot of people now expressing doubts about the prisoner some fan of these elections. These concerns have been raised now for months even for years, actually because these elections were meant to take place in two thousand sixteen they were delayed once twice now aside time, and so there are a lot of concerns both from people in the country. And from the international community is worth noting that they will be no observers from the EU over from the US present on Sunday during these elections. So a lot of questions on how this very we'll go ahead. That is the BBC's Louise addressed in Kinshasa. Now, we've commissioned a selection of BBC foreign correspondents to write their own personal essay about which pieces of music of meant something special to them throughout their working lives. And during their travels today, it's the turn of the BBC's little from one thousand nine hundred ninety one thousand nine hundred ninety five he reported on the break up of Yugoslavia, and in particular from Sarajevo, the Bosnian capital.
