The History of US Presidential Transportation
"First us president of any sort to fly in an airplane was theodore roosevelt. It was rather short flight as airplanes at the time didn't have a very long range and it was probably one of the more dangerous. Flights ever attempted by president sitting or former come over after this short sightseeing flight. Us presidents didn't do any flying. It would be another thirty three years before an actual sitting. Us president would get on an airplane. The first airplane designated for presidential use was purchased in nineteen thirty three it was a douglas dolphin amphibious aircraft and it was operated by the us navy as there was no air force at the time. The co name. It was given was r d two. It could seat four passengers and there was a small sleeping compartment. The interior was custom made for presidential use with leather seats. It was stationed at the anacostia naval airbase in washington. Dc until nineteen thirty nine and during that time it was never once used by the president to be fair. Fdr was in a wheelchair and getting in and out of an airplane especially a small amphibious plane was probably something that he wasn't keen to do however he did eventually take a flight the very first airplane flight by a sitting. Us president took place on january. Eleventh nineteen forty-three when franklin roosevelt flew on. The dixie clipper was a commercial boeing. Three fourteen clipper which was operated by pan. Am he flew fifty five hundred miles to the casablanca conference in morocco to meet with winston churchill and charles de gaulle. The flight was done in three stages any flu rather than took a ship because it was considered safer than risking german u boats in the atlantic after the trip the army air force didn't want to rely on commercial airlines for presidential transportation. They proposed the president. Use a modified. C eighty seven liberator express heavy bomber. The plane was dubbed the guess where to when the secret service reviewed the safety record of the plane. They rejected it. For presidential use. The plane was used for carrying the first lady. Eleanor roosevelt however on a trip to latin america. But it never carried the president. The secret service then approved a douglas. C fifty four skymaster which was a transport plane used in the war. It was named the sacred cow ended. Had sleeping quarters are radiotelephone and a lift for getting roosevelt in and out of the plane in his wheelchair. The only time you used it was to travel to the yalta conference in february of nineteen forty five. This plane is on display at the museum. At the wright patterson air force base outside dayton

What are Frontier Markets?
"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index. Morocco is twelve percent. Iceland's eight percent. Kenya seven percent. Kazakhstan is seven percent in looking at ways to invest the primary. Etf i found for us based investors is the i shares mci frontier and select emerging market. Etf i'm not sure exactly when i shares renamed it but the largest wait in that. Etf is kuwait at nineteen percent. And as i mentioned kuwait was upgraded from my frontier market to an emerging market.

Well, yeah, felt on doll so the nearby Milica, which is also Spanish territory have always bean flash point for migrants trying to enter European soil.

The History of Muslim-Controlled Spain
"In the early eighth century the iberian peninsula was populated by the visigoths who are dramatic people who entered and populated the peninsula after the collapse of the roman empire. During the reign of the caliph will lead the first general. Tariq iban ziad lead moore's forces across the mediterranean and landed in gibraltar on april thirtieth in the year seven eleven. This began a seven year campaign. Where the moore's brought most of the iberian peninsula under islamic control the term moore should probably be explained as i've used it here. In several previous episodes there really are no people called. Moore's the term more was used by europeans to describe muslim inhabitants. From north africa included people of different ethnicities including berbers and arabs. The term isn't too dissimilar from the term francs which was used by muslims in the middle east to describe all europeans. The term comes from the roman province of mauritania which is where modern day morocco is located. The current country of that name is not located exactly where the ancient province of mauritania is located. The invasion began a period where muslim rulers controlled at least part of the iberian peninsula for almost eight hundred years the moore's never completely conquered the peninsula however even at its greatest extent just eight years. After the invasion there was still a part of the peninsula that remained under christian control in the far north the kingdom of asturias remained independent and it was never conquered that being said one of the reasons why they had such an easy time is because they gave very generous terms to the people who they did. Conquer one example of this is theodomir the visigoths chief of america. He agreed to terms where he could still continue to be the leader of his people and practice christianity. All they had to do was pay an annual tribute. The entire region of iberian muslim rule was known in arabic as al
Ever Given: The stuck boat that was both a crisis and a comedy
"Lori and morocco is the author of several books of shipping trade including trade war containers. Don't lie navigating the bluster and has been reporting on this every day for cnbc. Hello lori-ann let how are you. I'm all right. I hope you're still standing after being deluged by other requests for interviews about this. It's a it's been pretty crazy. So maybe recap for folks who have not spent the last week like most of us obsessing over a big boat What is the big boat. And and how did it get stuck in the suez canal while they're still trying to figure out the exact cause but we're looking at is you had A container ship known as the ever given. And that's considered a mega container vessel can have an upwards of twenty thousand containers so those boxes that you see when you drive down the road near near the porta. Palo facts or vancouver. Wherever you need being in canada those are the big containers at that That ever given a would be having on and so what happened was during a. It's a highly with. They're going through the canal There was a storm that hit. And when you look at a container vessel the higher up you go so this was about twelve to fourteen stories. High highly stack with these vessels are with containers. The higher you go you have sale effect just like a sailboat. So what happens is if you have a big storm and the wind is blowing like you had with a sandstorm and it came on hard. Came on quick and visibility was none okay. So you're blinded you're driving this cargo ship through a very narrow canal. The containers on the ship acted as a sale and it started to push the vessel. And so what happened was you are a pilot. You are blind whether you do you. Try to lean against the wind. So you are navigating and you're moving the wheel of the vessel against the wind. What a lotta people think. What happened is because a large vessel. It's not like when you're say you're on your pleasure bowed out in the bay or you're driving your car where you turn the wheel and automatically moves. It takes time. It takes a few minutes for The movement of your wheel versus the rudders of the boats. What happened was a lot of people. Think the pilot overcompensated and then ran. The bishop aground. And so what happened was you have this behemoth vessel loaded with an upwards of twenty thousand containers stuck in the sand
The History of Spanish Africa
"I say that there are parts of spain and africa. I'm not trying to be tricky and play with words. I'm not saying that. Spain used to have colonies in africa. Although that's true. I'm also not trying to define the canary islands. Which are part of spain off the coast of africa as being in africa. I mean in the most literal sense possible. That part of spain is in africa. There are two very small spanish cities located on the peninsula which are on the african mainland ordering morocco and malia and their very existence as you probably would expect are due to historical quirks happenstance due to geography. Spain has always had a close relationship with africa finishes based in carthage in. What is today. Tunisia established settlements on the spanish coast. The roman province of hispania was part of a greater empire that included all of north africa. Which bordered the mediterranean after the roman empire fell islamic moors from north africa conquered and controlled spain for over seven hundred years. So there's always been a back and forth between north africa in the peninsula and malia both spanish territories in africa have different yet similar histories despite being about one hundred and thirty miles apart from each other. Sita is located directly across the sea from gibraltar. So if you ever want stump someone asks them. What country lies. Directly south of gibraltar and what country lies. North of gibraltar. answer is the same. Spain is on both ends. Sierra makes the counterpart to gibraltar for the pillars of hercules which the ancient names of the two promontories which guarded the strait of gibraltar. As with most everything in the region it has an ancient history. Carthage martina and numidians all control the area. Before the romans the you me add caliphate controlled it for centuries when the caliphate of cordoba fell in ten thirty one it was then passed between various north african kingdoms with support from various kingdoms in the iberian peninsula.
The Hitler Haggadah with Jonnie Schnytzer
"Joined today by johnny schnitzer to talk about the hitler. Haga a nineteen forty-three judeo arabic haggadah. Which tells the story of the holocaust the second world war and the allied landing in north africa through the passover seder. Johnny schnitzer is a phd candidate at bar. Ilan university with a focus on medieval kabbalah. His dissertation is focused on the fourteenth century. Kabul list rabbi. Joseph ben shallow ashkenazi and johnny is also preparing a critical edition of ashkenazis. Commentary on sefer itsy raw. Johnny also edited an english edition of the etc. Which we're going to be talking about today. The hitler etc is such a fascinating text in many ways even just the title is jarring. And you might think how can you use. Hitler's name in the title of this traditional jewish text and it draws you in to a tremendous piece of moroccan jewish history that reworked the traditional passover story to tell us about the experience of north african jews in the holocaust. I hope you enjoyed our conversation. Where we're going to dive into this text and think about how it can broaden our understanding of the holocaust to include the middle east and north africa in that story and also where we think through the important relationship between jewish roots and holidays with history and historical memory. Thanks for tuning in high johnny. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining us to talk about your book that you added. Thank you for inviting me. Lovely to be here. Absolute think this is such a fascinating text. Can you maybe tell us a little bit about it in other words like what is it that makes this different from all other hug adults. I think there are sort of two bombs that this text drops upon any re- debt guest that sort of feast there is on the hit laga and the first one of course is the title and this is what got me interested in this from the outset and that is this sort of sporadic this who has the chutzpah to do this at taking a jewish texts calling it the hit laga. That's the sort of bomb number one. Because you're not even sure what this is about. Who wrote this. But you know one thing you know that the author who is anonymous and we'll touch upon them in a moment takes to keywords. That every juneau's today every jew does not need to google almost haggadah writer passover passover eve where we read the haggadah we all come and we eat together and he takes haggadah and he connects to the other. Keyword that we all know about for a very separate horrific connotation. That's hitler and he puts it together. The first bomb is who has the chutzpah to perpetrate a text. And give it the title. Hit laga taking one of the most sacred texts and connecting it to one of the biggest mom's area if you like in jewish history and then you open the text and you realize that author has done something absolutely fascinating he is done with. The sages have asked us to do generation after generation and that is to see ourselves as if we left egypt red. It's to reenact. Redemptions to reenact. God saving the jewish people taking us out. And what does he do. He takes the structure of the storytelling bit of the haggadah. Right on passover. Eve we have the ceremony we have the blessings and then we reached the mortgage section the mugged section to section where we meant to mcgee. We meant to tell the story. That's what is about right. We tell story we tell the story of redemption. This also explains why passovers become right. This trend of everyone bringing own hug dot. Everyone bringing their own stories. Because it's all about bringing together different pieces of the puzzle. Creating this beautifully rich mosaic. So he takes the traditional structure of the haggadah which tells us about how we were taken out of egypt and it tells us about these different characters. Rabbinic figures leaving two thousand years ago. The told us to do this and told us to do that. And he takes out the content and fills it with a new content whereby he tells the story of the holocaust of world war two of the allied victory of the ex pows over nazi germany. And hitler and mussolini's italy he tells us the story of his generation rights yossi who has something to tell us in the traditional said. There's something about how. How would you meant to do something. All of a sudden becomes the speech of the dictator iosif stalin when we told them the haggadah that i god and not an angel. Not anyone else is going to take you. The jewish people out of egypt suddenly becomes. I shall the goal. I not level not the right none of none of the other vichy high commanding general's. I shall the goal which already tells us right. This is what's fascinating in the hitler etc and this is the second bomb if the first bomb is the title. We still don't know what it's about. The second bomb is when you discover that this was written by an anonymous jew living in robots morocco probably towards the end of nineteen forty-three as a result possibly inspired by operation torch. The allied operation led by the us on the shores of casablanca and algiers. And everything changes all of a sudden this jew living in morocco. Who's lived under a regime whether anti jewish laws jews around him have lost their jobs. Jews around you can't get a jewish education you become by night a second-grade citizen and so out author. It almost seems as if he's taking a text which it's time to write it when we don't yet know the ending. He doesn't yet know about the horrific six million who are being murdered. He doesn't know about concentration camps in poland. But he knows he wants to do something horrific any also is living in a time where his life has changed for some years and as a result of the allied victory he suddenly possibly is inspired and sees. I get the exodus. The story i meant to be telling i meant to take the passover haggadah until the story that i see and that's how the allies beat the excess power. And how in fact you know retelling the story of exodus mine new-fangled version. I think that the text itself is amazing in the ways in which it on. The one hand utilizes the story of passover very explicitly very specifically in when he talks. About how hitler. Enslaved the jews but also like you mentioned the way in which some of the characteristic aspects of the traditional aspects are transfigured and transformed new. Whether we're talking about the parable of the four sons the for children or the different rabbis plagues. What are some of the really interesting things that are happening in this text that really are utilizing the passover story itself and also the the characteristic aspects of the passover seder that people who read attritional seder would be familiar with but they give it new meaning in this context. If we take right this this idea of the four sons four daughters any jewish figure that we look at it and we want to understand. What is it the sort of a heart of their teachings you know. One of the tricks is to see if they wrote a commentary on the haggadah. What do they do with these. Four boys of for doors. What do they symbolize. And in the case of the hit da it takes us back in time to a sort of moroccan viewpoint of the the north african campaign. And so who is the wise son now. You know it's going to be an allied power. But you're not sure that england or is it america and you'll told the the wise son is england right. The royal air force acts cleverly. He's clearly impressed he he is probably the razzie stance radio. He knows about the bombings. He knows about montgomery and then we move onto the russia. The russia we know can only be one person. That's clearly hitler. Hitler the evil one. He knows that he's a know he. He's torturing the jewish people and yet it's interesting that if you read through the at that we're not quite sure what's going on in europe right off a thinks that there is a concentration camp in berlin so we're not yet show what's going on in the world and our author doesn't yet. Nobody knows that he clearly is evil that he's plotting against the jews there wearing yellow badges which also is interesting. Because we're not sure. If he's referring to the yellow badges of jews in europe or the yellow badges of jews in certain places in north africa and then who is the tam. The time is interesting. Because tom can both mean in hebrew complete simpleton the thomas america and then shane no. You're dillashaw and who doesn't know how to ask questions. The classic version says the fourth son is the son who doesn't know how to ask questions. The newfangled version is and mussalini. Who isn't with the avowed woods and this is very interesting because when i was speaking to holocaust survivors. Oh you know this. Sort of all degeneration and i spoke to people from algeria from tunisia morocco across the board there was a nickname from cellini mar. He was the donkey he was the s. This resonates with this passage whims lead author decides to change it. And say it's not. He doesn't ask question it's that we don't even wanna talk about
Israel holds 4th parliamentary election in 2 years
"Has claimed a huge win for the right in Israel's fourth election in two years. The exit polls suggest he may fail. Secure majority in parliament. His campaign focused on Israel's world leading covert 19 vaccination program and his diplomatic success in normalizing ties with some Arab countries. But his opponents from across the political spectrum argue he should not remain in office while standing on corruption charges he have caused denies any wrong doing. Let's speak to Richard Peter. Off the person Israel Communications and Research Center in Jerusalem. Who's monitoring results as they come in Richard. He's claiming of victory. But it's a victory of sorts, isn't it? Because he will have to strike a deal with many people are raising concerns about far right groups. Tol have a majority. Good morning. Thank you very much indeed for having me Well, first of all, let's be clear that at the moment all these projections are based on the exit polls on so we don't have the actual results yet a tool on DSA The exit polls are suggesting a very slim victory to the pro Netanyahu camp. But I think we're going to need to wait even for a few more days for the picture to become clearer. Okay, So let's talk about what might happen then. Should he just get over the line but need he needs 60 seats for a majority looks that you might be around. 53 seats at the moment. They're all concerns that he's going to have to go it get into bed with ultra Orthodox parties Showers party, for example who have anti gay views and two women and two women views. They want to expel disloyal Arabs from the state. What are people saying about the kind of coalitions he may have toe Ford? So, yes, you're absolutely right with the person with the caveat that we don't have the results. The chances are that the parties that exception Netanyahu are the ultra religious after Orthodox on by the end of one particularly hard, hard right party that has some quite unpalatable views on those on those issues, thistles the nature of the politics that Netanyahu will try and kind of move. Move the government to a more centrist position on gay try and limit the influence off the moral order off the more extreme elements within his, but it within his faction, But it's no no doubt that he is reliant on those parties to form a government. Has his success in the vaccination program is is that why he has seemingly as you say, appreciates any exit polls, But he has done quite well. You know, Israel has led the world in managing to Vaccinated population. I think you were right in your opening comments that it's a combination off bringing the vaccine. I mean, he has devoted a large part of his campaign, emphasizing the fact that he personally did it. The CEO of Fiza gave an interview on Israeli TV a couple of weeks ago when he described in Tanya, whose insistence being obsessive over over it, which usually obsessive. This has Majority of overturned But in this sense, he was so so committed to bringing it that it has produced a dividends, and some people appreciate that on the full peace treaties that he's brought in the last year, the normalization agreements with the U.

Turkey’s Lira Plunges After Third Central Bank Chief Sacked
"Now to what's going on in Turkey. The lira absolutely tumbling after what the eighth 10th 45th central banker dismissed by Erdogan. I believe he was the third in the past two years to be kicked out after having tightening policies to try to shore up credibility. In the Turkish currency. Evidently, it was not what Erdogan wanted and he was ousted. Damian SAS are joining us now, Damien. What's your sense of whether this will get remedied in some way from the political operatives around President Erdogan? Because right now? You got a currency problem? Yeah, well, I'm not in the wheelhouse of President Erdogan and new Central Bank cover Cappuccio Glue seems to be a critic of the rate hikes. I mean, he came from the crew of government newspaper Yeni Safak. So you know, he seems to be just another pawn. He seems to be cut of the same cloth as Morocco Whistle who was the central bank governor before? Most recent sacking of Nazi oddball somebody who basically thought that cutting rates was a good thing to do in the face of rising inflation. And this is really what we're talking about here, ELISA. The inflation impulse in emerging markets is far stronger than anyone's even realizing certainly more than we're seeing here in developed markets. And so look. I mean, you've got Turkish locals who have moved their money off short into dollars into gold. And then I'll bring you back on shore anytime soon. And that's a real risk. Alright, Gaming. So for the smart Institution. Investors that you speak with Damian is Turkey. To what extent is that even investable? That's a great point. It's not. It's not as investable is that once was certainly and you know, it's probably only 1% of Ah e m local currency debt allocation. If that, certainly on the equity side, I think there's a little bit more there. But you know, you see the horses stumbled down 10% today. I think the currencies off now about 8 8.5%. It was down. You know as much as 10% earlier on, so it seems to be snapping back. I think the real risk in the real question is What does this mean for the broader, um, complex or we're going to see contagion into places like Egypt, the Nigerian South African Right now, we're really not seeing that Paul. I mean, CBS five years spreads are double that of South Africa. South Africa's Haven't really moved in lockstep with the same goes for Nigerian Egypt in some of the other high flyers, So you know, right now things seem to be relatively well contains, but the verdict is still out for sure.
Dershowitz nominates Kushner, aide for Nobel Peace Prize
"Harvard law professor emeritus. That's right, Alan Dershowitz that nominated Jared Kushner for the Nobel Peace Prize because, after all, he was able to cobble together four separate Israel peace deals in the Middle East with the United Arab Emirates and with Bahrain with Sudan and with Morocco, and if President Trump had remained in office, Saudi Arabia was next in line. But Biden will get back to bombing and war and dying because that's what the Democrats do. You know they inflicted how many things that they inflict upon us A whole lot of things. I think whole lot whole bunch. Unbelievable harmony. The um you know, they bombed the Obama. Biden People Libya into oblivion. It's a failed state to this day. Pretty amazing stuff. They bomb and bomb and bomb and they get the Nobel Peace Prize. And no problem, not a not a thing they target missed last night American citizens and they got the Nobel Peace Prize. The Trump Administration for Mideast peace deals Historic each and every one of them and in combination historic on an epic scale and was President Trump will have President Trump was nominated actually four times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

"Make it stop because it's absolutely perfect. You know you wouldn't take koby stake for example that's that's absolutely perfect and then at catch up to it. Tampering with food perfection. As i have on the world i'm carol hills. This is the world where a co production of gbh boston npr rex. More than forty states and the federal government are now suing to break up facebook. us authorities announced the groundbreaking lawsuits just yesterday. Here's new york. Attorney general letitia james by using its vast troves of data and money facebook has squashed or hindered what the company perceived as potential threats. They've reduced choices for consumers. They stifled innovation and they degraded privacy protections for millions of americans. These lawsuits could be the most dramatic antitrust action in decades. And not just here in the us but worldwide the world's lydia amman alito covers tech for us lydia. What exactly are. Us authorities alleging yes. Oh carol when we talk about facebook we have to remember. We're talking about this. Three headed giant. They own instagram. That's a photo and video sharing app as well as what's app which is a messaging tool facebook. Acquired these companies over the last decade. And now they've grown to become some of the most popular platforms all over the world all together. They have an estimated three billion users worldwide and federal and state officials in the. Us say that's just too big and that in the process it's abused its power to crush smaller competitors and through these lawsuits. They want to break up the company. They want to force facebook to sell off. What's up and instagram. This isn't the first time the government has gone after big tech. is it. yeah this is actually the second major antitrust action the. Us has taken in october. The department of justice the doj and several states sued google and the accusation. There was that. Google has an illegal monopoly over internet search and online advertising. So the experts say that taken together. These are the most significant anti-trust cases in decades worldwide. Not just in the us liberty as you know. Europe is typically seen as a leader on this issue. How are they viewing. What's going on in the us. Yeah i spoke about this. With thomas vigna. He's a lawyer in brussels. Who's been involved with several high-profile anti-trust cases against tech companies in the us and europe. And he said that. What's ironic here. Is that for several decades now. Some in the us especially on the republican side have been complaining about europe going after these american tech icons and now we have the us government taking four more aggressive approach than churkin's of ever taken and vanessa. That people in his circles in europe are really surprised about this. That many people didn't expect the us to go after companies so aggressively and he said there's also some envy so even though european authorities technically and legally would have the power to go after facebook and other companies to try and break them up. He said they would never actually do that for political reasons. Remind us what have european authorities done on antitrust. So the way they've gone after these companies is through finds just to give you an example. Google alone has gotten more than nine billion dollars in antitrust fines since two thousand seventeen. And that amount to you and me carol might seem huge. But for these tech giants. This is just the cost of doing business and there's agreement that these fines however big they might be. Don't actually change the way these companies behave whereas trying to break up companies like facebook which is what the us is doing. Could actually change some behaviors. Does this mean that. The us is now ahead of europe when it comes to antitrust enforcement yes and no so most people would agree that what the us is doing right now with these lawsuits that it's far more aggressive than what european antitrust enforcers have done But where the us seems to be lagging behind is on serious legislation on antitrust. So right now. Europe is in the process of hauling. Its antitrust rules. The european commission is going to unveil a whole new framework on antitrust on tuesday next week and people like vigna the lawyer in brussels they say that europe will be leaping ahead of the us in that front and really leaping ahead of the rest of the world. How is facebook responding to all this in general face because argued that it doesn't have the kind of market dominance that its critics claim. It has facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg actually made this point that a congressional hearing on antitrust over the summer here he is. The fastest growing ads. platform is amazon. The largest platform is google and for every dollar spent on advertising in the us less than ten cents and he went on to mention other companies now in terms of the lawsuits this week. Facebook says that disagrees with the government's allegations and that it plans to fight this in court. The world's lydia amount alito. Thanks a lot. You're welcome carole. A few weeks ago oregon voters made a bold move. They voted to make their state. The first to decriminalize possession of small amounts of hard drugs substances like heroin meth or cocaine.

"We have come here to let you know that change is coming whether you like it or not can turn this. You have no option. The only option you have is what we do now and in the next few year would profoundly affect the next few thousand years. I'm joined by denmark's climate minister. Dan jorgensen dan. What's the significance of this decision. Well it's it's a very big decision for us and then locked for decades. We've made a lot of money on oil and gas and it's been an important part of the funding off our welfare state. But we feel that we need to take this decision because climate change is here and we need to do whatever we can to fight it and forced to occupy with a credible voice that we actually lead us in the fight against climate. Change that we needed to take the decision. Now your energy ministry estimates this could cost denmark. Two billion dollars in lost revenue. How do you intend to close that revenue gap. Yeah we need a new strategy now full. How will we make a living in the future. Fortunately we already underway. We are in a situation. How renewables especially when the north shore wind is already a much bigger sexier than the oil sector so we plan to keep expanding our renewable sachse. We have planned to really ambitiously. Grow our offshore wind for instance. Shall we hope to make up. Not only for the nas revenue but also to create the jobs that will be lost in the oil sector. Have you received any pushback for this decision to stop issuing new leases and and oil production. It's obvious that not all companies in the oil sector guests sector. Were were happy about this. Obviously there's also been political forces saying that as long as there's oil down there we should put it off the ground and make money on it but all in all. I'm happy to say that. We have broad support for this. And i think one of the reasons for that is that we are doing this in adjust way. I want us to be just transition. Meaning that we really focus on creating jobs for the people that lose two jobs before was on having a plan for economic development that makes this also economically viable solution. There's around four thousand people who are employed by denmark's oil and gas sector. How do you make up for that many jobs. Do the current plans cover that or are you still sort of behind in terms of figuring out how to reemploy these people. It's a great question because very often in into debate about green transformation in general in in in europe people forget that okay. Yes as a whole The green transformation wound will give you flip more jobs than than you'll lose bought. It's very important for us that we find the right jobs for the people that were loose that the job festival is not something that we're going to do from one day to the next second important point is that we allocate funding to training a worker from somebody who works in offshore oil to offshore wind for instance the investments that we talked about earlier that we've made and we'll be making an offshore wind fried the mentioned twenty-fifty And of course. That's the date you're going to end oil production greenpeace-denmark is applauding this. Move and they're saying this is climate leadership looks like but you're also allowing three more decades of oil drilling of the current leases and production. That's going on to continue in the north sea and that's something that youth climate activists credit tune. Berg has criticized on twitter. How do you respond to activists who say thirty. Years is too slow for a phase out if we were to stop oil production tomorrow. For instance as some activists have argued that we should it would fundamentally change our society we would no longer be able to fund our welfare state hospitals schools roads education system. On of these things would have to go through sa- via savings so that in my opinion wouldn't really make us a front one. I don't think many countries would then look at us and say listen that's That's a very good example. Let's follow that. I think it's important to be Ambitious and i think also that the reason why we choose to do this as as the first major oil producing country and that is that we want to and hope to inspire others. But if you want to hope to inspire us then you also need to make rational decisions and you also need to think about it people in wolf for us. A just transition is keyword a key term. It's important to find a balance. And i think we've found that that balance a decision that we have made that's interesting so you're really paying attention to also kind of social issues and political issues of how population will respond and adapt to these changes. I think one of the biggest threats and obstacles to watch The green transformation that we need is if there's no public support if we see too many problems where we don't take into consideration the needs and opinions of the population both when installing renewable energy but also when making the transformation for one type of entity to the next that might make people lose jobs if we don't take that problem seriously and tackled in a way that that makes sure that weekend maintain and a society with a lot of equity and with no inequality. Dan laughing we risk losing the support that we need dan. Jurgensen is the climate minister of denmark. Thanks a lot for speaking with us thank you. We reported yesterday on a growing number of countries that are announcing they'll stop contributing greenhouse gases to the atmosphere by mid century. Another country just added itself to that list brazil this week it said it would do its part by twenty sixty the un that it would not strengthen its goal for cutting carbon emissions in the near term by the end of the decade experts. Say those short term goals are necessary to lend credibility to long-term promises. Kristen pourri from the nonprofit amazon watch calls the target unambitious. The announcement amounts to a baby step and one from a government that has proven itself willing to sacrifice the amazon. It's people's for quick profit including the prophet of illicit actors. Illegal loggers illegal miners and landgrabbers. Brazilian president jair bolsonaro has pushed for more development in the amazon deforestation there. This year reached its highest level in more than decade executive secretary of the climate observatory in brazil. Masilo strini says. The government's plan is a shame. Was yours lead. Their of these champion the past and now we are in the side of the problem on the side of the problem. Brazil's communication to the un also suggested that its target for twenty sixty would be contingent on international funding while a coronavirus vaccine is on the horizon of us are still a ways off from getting our shot in the arm.

"I'm carol hills. And this is the world a lot of big news surrounding the middle east. Today we start off with a diplomatic breakthrough israel. Morocco have agreed to normalize relations. President trump announced the news today on twitter. He called it a massive breakthrough for peace in the middle east. Many would call an overstatement still. This is the fourth arab majority country to agree to normalize relations with israel in the past four months. As part of the deal the trump administration is reversing a long standing. Us policy by recognizing morocco's claims over the disputed western sahara region. Summit arizona is a phd candidate at the university of california davis writing about morocco. Since nineteen seventy five both democratic and republican administrations have not taking this step. The trump administration clearly has taken advantage of the last few months of. It's lame duck presidency to to really break from the past and put the biden administration difficult position ours. Zukis says it would be tough for. President elect biden to reverse the decision on the disputed area of the western sahara because that could sink the entire agreements israel. Morocco have maintained lower level diplomatic relations for many years. Still the israeli prime minister and king of morocco both heralded today's agreement. Benjamin netanyahu said this will be very warm peace king mohammed thanked president trump and he mentioned the special ties between the jewish community of moroccan origin and israel also today in the middle east a major development in lebanon prime minister hassan diab and three other government ministers have been charged with negligence leading to the explosion that rocked the port of beirut. This summer the blast killed more than two hundred people and left. Thousands injured joining me now to discuss. Today's developments is kareem chah-i-ab. He's a beirut based journalist and nonresident fellow at the therere institute for middle east policy. I asked him the significance of the charges brought by the prosecutor investigating the blast so there are several key points about why what happened. Today was extremely significant in the investigation. First of all This is the first instance of where ministers and ex-ministers were charged and will be interrogated as accused. We've had a handful of interviews and investigations of ministers and foreign ministers made. It's the blast. But there were all done capacity. Isn't i witness another big development of course is the fact that prime minister hasan was among those charged. This is a significant development. I don't think we've ever seen before. And what's interesting. Is hassan diab. He resigned after the blast. But he's acting as a caretaker prime minister so does that mean. He's basically still prime minister. A caretaker government is basically just like any other government but on neutral gear. They just keep things going as wild. Lawmakers tried to establish a new government so we haven't had a full-fledged government in four months since has the resigned after the last august. We have an incoming prime minister right now but there are still negotiations so technically a job is still in the ground sarai and the ministers are still there but just keep things going neutral gear. What's been the reaction thus far to today's news in lebanon to the fact that these charges have been brought. There isn't a lot of skepticism. In general about the investigation. You know lebanon's this year is not independent. Neither bylaw neither in practice. So there's a lot of skepticism a whether it's from citizens affected or folks weren't about how effective this investigation will really be at the same time. People were definitely surprised that the prime minister was charged summoned. But there's lots of questions about other. Senior officials will have not been charged. Jets for example. President michel admitted to the press that he was aware of the the monja nitrate any the judiciary the officials to do what they have to do. Prior to the blast there were a handful of ex-prime ministers proceeding hassan. Diab the five or so years of the ammonium nitrate was just lingering in the port. They weren't summoned either. So some people do think that hassan diab might actually be scapegoated but there's also skeptcism round the entire investigation in general. I think it's you think. Today's charges are the first step in tackling the political and economic corruption in lebanon. I don't necessarily think so to be quite honest with you. I think the ammonium nitrate case is an example of the various nefarious practices. That take place the mismanagement that negligence and the corruption of course but corruption and illicit profiteering oral and all sorts of bad comic practices. Come in all shapes and sizes through all sorts of a ministries and state institutions. and otherwise. we're talk about decades and decades of these very dangerous practices which led to our economic crisis which has led to the extreme deterioration however if the investigation is really independent and if it's really thorough and it really wants to get to the bottom of this. The ports is a big example of financial mismanagement and corruption in lebanon so the investigation is a huge opportunity to further. Understand this but of course give the on dependent given the power structures of the company. It's quite questionable. To what extent will be able to uncover it in our current framework kareem. Chah-i-ab is a beirut based journalist and nonresident fellow at the therere institute for middle east policy. Thanks a lot. Thank you for offering me and one more story. We're following in the mideast right now the. Us state department is on course to green light of big weapons sale there. The united arab emirates wants to buy a fleet of advanced stealth fighter jets and weaponized drones. An effort to stop the sale failed to win enough votes in the. Us senate yesterday. The weapons deal is seen as part of a quid pro quo. The uae get state of the art american firepower in exchange for its recognition of the state of israel that budding new relationship between the gulf kingdom and the jewish state is in the abraham accords brokered by the trump administration back in august republican senator roy blunt of missouri made the case for the weapons sale earlier. This month we have increasingly worked closely with the u. a on defense issues On the ground together in the air together in at least six. Different extended deployments the. Ua has been there. If the deal goes through the uae would be making an exponential leap forward in terms of military. Might the f. Thirty five is america's newest fighter jet it's built by lockheed martin in places across the us including missouri it's flown by the us military and some of its allies but up to now the only middle eastern country that had f thirty five was israel under us law. All american weapons sales in the middle east have to pass a litmus test they cannot undermine israel's qualitative military edge over its arab neighbors in a flurry of negotiations. This year israel dropped its objections to the sale of jets to the uae. The last step was to overcome objections in congress. This is the first time that we would sell these. Incredibly lethal incredibly complicated technologies into the heart of the middle east democratic senator. Chris murphy of connecticut is one of the lawmakers who supported legislation to block this weapons deal murphy says he agrees the uae is an important partner for as many places as we cooperate with e there are many points of division and those points division often involve the use of us military technology against the interests of the united states the uae has provided weapons. Some of them us made to militias in yemen and libya..

I I I've taken hikes across the mountain more just kind of set off on a trail have come across. You know, a a group of Hudson. I don't know that word for that. They're just kind of you know, if if they weren't a city collies shacks, maybe or something like that.

Yeah. That's my feeling. You know, is that in the my experience it's been the experience of, you know, almost everyone of my friends at gone, you know, adventured out of it is that it's one of these places that, you know, you're you're eventually just gonna get taken in by the family you live in France.

But there are I mean there are moments when I definitely do this live in Morocco. What do you miss the most about it? That's a good question. After a while. There's this hearted friendliness to it that doesn't quite exist. In Paris in the same way, you know, people are friendlier in Paris than I think most people give them credit for, you know, I find that regions in the French people in general to be incredibly friendly, really really nice. But there's just this kind of hearted spirit. That is Morocco that I found with my neighbor is that I found was that people at the local market in stuff said, you know, you don't you don't get elsewhere. I think and or at least not into many places, and I think I missed that. I missed being able to go outside my front door and experience that because as you know, the further up you go further north of the equator, you go that colder these cultures. Hey, you're treading on thin ice, not pun intended. Tended. It wasn't tended. Yeah. I'm just thinking about that and experiencing that every day in when you say warmhearted, I can't help. But think of this idea of just having these more, I guess deeper human connections in a way when it comes down to it and to have that as part of your daily life. I could imagine for years, and then that's that's gone. 'cause you're in a big city.

It is an amazing sensation. And something at the end. You won't forget anytime soon. Do not miss wandering says Medina the feds. Medina is a UNESCO world heritage site in. It's the world's largest pedestrian freezer are sorry car-free zone pedestrian only might as donkeys a few scooters here, and there one hundred and fifty thousand people or so still living that says Medina, and it's utter labyrinth. You will get lost there. And you're supposed to end. It's wonderful. I love it said just said it entire look like what medieval life was like not only Morocco been in a lot of spots around the world as well. So do not. Miss that. A do not miss a night in the desert. I don't care how touristy these packages silent night in the desert under the stars. You know, outside of hers zoo or something like that. It's incredible. Every time I go to in fact, I'm planning another trip right now. And one of the first things I look at doing this can I do a night in the desert gets at something not only do tourist you. But also Moroccans do as well. They know it's considered this kind of almost like a cleansing act by people so night in the desert for me, something you do not wanna miss. I mean couscous have a Friday couscous if you can get in with the family, if you can do any sort of family family dinner, whether that's a couscous her fits attaching. And you can have that in a family atmosphere do that. Well, I was going to actually get into that next is getting tips on digging into the local culture and interacting with locals in befriending locals in making those connections. You can go beyond the. The standard I guess tourist experience. So it's really hard to do this in the cities. I think in just the countryside's anywhere. You are. I don't care if it's a countryside in France or countryside. You know, I don't know in in California. It's a you know, when you get out of the cities in the country is that people tend to be a bit more kind of that salt of the earth type thing bit more friendly towards neighbors towards visitors porch travelers and in an Islam. They actually I find that in the countryside. They take this tenant at Islam a little bit more seriously where you should appropriate a certain amount of respect in talapity to your guest. You know, and I guess as anybody who comes into your town or village? So you find a lot of times at any smaller villages, Morocco, you're treated like a king. You know, that's tentative culture, you know. Israeli to extend the kind of put that in quotes, Royal treatment. But extend like, a very friendly, very familiar kinda treatment to you as if you were one of their family as if you were, you know, their their cousin or their son or their daughters that so to get I think to to kinda scratch the surface of the cold trip that more than two as you were saying to go beyond that kinda average tourist experience. Which I again, I think there's a lot..

"So it because I believe that is a, you know, it's kind of a what do you call it like a? When you when you start something off on the right foot? You're really setting the tone for your trip. And for me if you want to set a great tone start off on the right foot, and for me that begins from the moment. Your foot touches the ground another great tip for those. That are in Europe. You can take the ferry from Theresa Spain into tanger-. It's a thirty minute ferry ride as beautiful as all get out inner crossing continents across Gibraltar. You can see the rock of Gibraltar in the distance from the coast of Spain. You can see the coast of Morocco, and they're right there. You know, they're almost kissing cousins Mets it but ended ended it is incredible to see just in the space of seven miles or about fourteen kilometers. How different the world's can be how much they change. And also at the same time kinda how similar they are as well. You know, these just get thrown into high definition, especially that first time he kinda make that that ferry crossing. So for me, that's kind of the best ways to come in. Morocco, you know, either by ferrying tanger- or flying into any airport that isn't cause of Lanka. So I think I think that's a good start for the trip. And then you were saying if you had two or four weeks, what would you do a lot of times people built their travels around certain activities? They like our experiences they wanna have. And I know there are some traditional tourist types experience of experiences that you can have in Morocco. What some of those are what some of those might are maybe are worth it and not worth it, those even even better tip. Sometimes is the things that hey, you've heard a lot about this. But it's and of course, that's all subjective. But. Hit send them one. Hey, you've heard a lot about cousin. Bog don't go there? Right. Okay. Yeah. There you go. Sometimes it's the things that people say not to do that kind of paint a clearer picture of what to do. Sometimes I guess that other thoughts have traveling to Morocco are a, you know, I think about the seasons. I would not go there in the summer. Yeah. Summertime. You know, if you stick to the coast that could be okay in terms of temperature. It's not too hot. But the coasts are flooded by all the tourists from Europe all the tourists from Morocco. You know, everybody kind of vacates the desert stop that really hot core of the country in the day fled to the coast. And so even if you stick to the coast where temperatures will be nice, you know, the hot sunny, warm, he can jump in the ocean. And all that. It's it's almost too crowded to make fun. I think particularly in some places that are typically a little bit more off to be passed a little bit less, less traveled. That's that's true except for probably August, maybe July. So when are the best months to travel then? Spreading and fall by far the best, you know, I if chosen between between the two I'd say probably springs the best time to go. Because then you get you know, turn them in the mountains. You got all these beautiful, flowering plants everywhere. And you start to see the green, you know, really really kinda take root the coast are still great for, you know, taking the whole little swim in the ocean. It'll be chilly, but it's still really nice out. And then in the desert your temperatures during the day are bearable, you know, they're up to forty five fifty degrees celsius there like one hundred ten one hundred twenties, but this more going to be like ninety degrees out or so which makes you know. So you can do a day in the desert Jerry comfortably..

And then another kind of baggage is closing, you know, few capricious books and whatnot. In carry on stuff. And I was gone. You know, just like that. Unfortunately, after you know, we've all been through these flights where once delayed Mr. connection in all the stuff happens. So I had a series of that and get to Morocco. So by the time, I got to Morocco had spent a one night in an airplane in another night in an airport was just, you know, just sleep deprived? And I and says, and I just want to go to bed just give me into my new home. I just want to go to bed. The university was nice enough to send a driver to meet me. And I'm waiting and I'm waiting, and I'm waiting from a bags to show up in show up as all I have. I had it in my carry on. All I had with me is I have my computer. I had a couple of books street. I have one win fair change a closed at already had us on the trip over. So it's so two weeks for the airline. American Airlines, by the way are not American. Sorry Air France air. Air france. I've had the worst luck. They've lost three of my bags one of them indefinitely. My Christmas presents from last year of material son gone indefinitely. So I am doing my best. Not just like this guy's American. Just throwing. Yeah. Luggage track. I told you French people. So. Yeah, that I mean so in France, I'm gonna minor strike against at the moment. 'cause that was that was the first of three times that they had lost miss misplace baggage. But this one. Yeah, this one hurts. It was the just getting to Morocco and like really big trip overseas, and you're on your own, and yeah does nothing stare, you know, so so what do you do? So I I ended up handwashing my my my laundry in my sink every night for the first two weeks in Morocco. You know, before finally, you know, back did arrive, and you know, then the school year starts in in your kind of visit working in most of that works out. Pretty well. You said it was rough the first couple months just what will end up about it. Well, so the hand washing every night and get him washing every night. So I mean, I didn't have anything to wear released. Like, I I I did like all my quote, unquote, professorial sort of. Close at imagined wearing I had my little blazer, you know, at my like slack semi button up shirts. I ninety glance. Yeah. No, no. No, professor. I heard. Yeah. I am professor who heads and like a ratty t shirt. Professor oriel. I think yes. Maybe it does. So this is a this. Yeah. This is so other than that. You're you're paying the picture of the like, the Princeton professor, and this is more of the village. Professor, right. The the. Well, the thing with Morocco that I learned before it went is it is it is a bit of a hierarchical culture where there are kind of these standardized standardized norms a lot a lot of times when people are reading the first time on quote, unquote, traditional where Rocco it'll be like jellabas in caftans stuff like that. And yes that had its place in history and people still do that. But in professionals fears, you know, you're expected to wear a tie or a button up shirt. You know, I mean, you walk into Bank everybody there is going to be a button up shirt and a tie just as they are all over Europe or the US, you know, and so like just going into it. I wanted to fit in you know, makes good first impression which I didn't have an opportunity to do. Unfortunately. But beyond that, you know, there's some of the normal sort of struggles. Like, I ride on the first day of Ramadan. And I'd never lived in a Muslim country before I've never experienced prominent. I don't really know. What's happening, but what basically happens during Ramadan is everything shut during the day, especially in small towns.

"You know, these things in some ways that kind of date a guidebook, but on the other hand when traveling a country like Morocco or a lot of African countries. I'd say in particular where you don't always have internet and things can get confusing very quickly. It's nice out have something right there. You know, whether it's like, a PDF, ipad or something or paper copy. You know, it's nice to have some sort of reference said. To kind of give you that that a center, you know that? So sometimes we need when we travel, you know, absolutely. I I mean, how did you end up in Morocco, e because the only thing I know about your story, and which is very little by the way, which makes us really fun for me to have this conversation, and that was really intentional because I did some research, and I looked at your website. But I'm like, I don't want to go to deep on this guy. But it sounds like you have been a lot of different places all over not. And you were living in a small village in Morocco. You said you move there in two thousand nine why did you move to a small village Morocco in two thousand nine almost made? The better question is why did I move from San Francisco in two thousand. Okay. Why did you do that? So so. Myself. I live in San Francisco have been there for a couple of years. You know, like a lot of people probably that tune in to not only this podcast that you run. But also on the location indie podcast like a lot of these other people had I just wasn't very content with my office job. You know, I was, you know, put it into kind of my nine to five didn't see myself in that office culture too much longer. And so I was looking for something else to do. And I'm doing what were you doing there? I was editing. I had a job as additive for a wire service entirely boring job that basically means I was the last line of defense and the dark arts of press releases. Tell long did you work there? Two years added tears there, and it was okay job for an office job. But that's the problem. I was still in office job. And I wanted to do something else. And I had my master's in English by then. And so I was looking at maybe ten English somewhere and originally I was looking around the US didn't even really think about going overseas at all. But the only jobs I can find in the US where out on the ocean islands in upstate New York in Watertown, just awfully eerie some community college there. And I thought man if I gotta be this remote in the US when I'd be really remote the world. And so. My surge to South Korea Thailand, this whole kind of southeast Asia, and Ana unaware kind of a plan for one job in Morocco. And keep in mind, I've never been to any displaces before United Denver minutes out these Asia. I'd never been to Africa in the Morocco job looked really interesting if you know anything about Rocco, it's it's a short flight to Europe, you know, instead to our flight into in France. And I have a lot of friends already in France and size thought. Hey, well, you know, it goes really bad. For you know for a week or two. So. Yeah. So it took a job teaching there in this little village. There's a university that happens to be a Alaw on university. And it happens to run a cut of an American style liberal arts program the link of the classes are mostly in English. And so I took a job teaching literature and composition there. And which meant basically, I had some more time to travel as well. So not only did my day to day.

Now he runs the travel blow code indie, traveler and sharing budget travel gods alongside tips on packing and gear. And Morocco is one of the destinations that feature on the spot and Merrick has broken down of his the into three key areas. Yeah, I think what I did was probably so I spent spent a month in Morocco, and it struck me that there are some sort of tin routes that people usually might want to consider. I think there's sort of the standard trip seems to be Marrakesh the city of Marrakesh and the Sahara. Those usually go together in a one week experience where in the old city for a while, you know, exploring the markets, maybe staying in Riyadh. One of those traditional sort of. Almost palatial a little hotels with the courtyard. You go through the Sahara that's like one week, sort of classic Meralco experience. I would say, and there are two others have clusters of. Popular destinations went into north closer to Spain. You can even get there from Spain with the ferry and one further to south, which you can reach quite easily. If you fly to idea, for instance, which is kind of a resort, seaside resort place. Not using my kind of thing I like to explore and discover in the country, but actually it's really well connected. So from there you can do trip around to south very easily. Not many places where you can put sand dunes, betas mountains and desert into the kind of top five it has going for it. It's pretty unique. Yeah, it is. I think Morocco is great. Actually, it's it is a very unique this nation, and it is so close to Europe as well. I mean, I'm from Europe, so it's easy for me to get there. But auto listeners, we might be from Australia, the United States. It's a really great add on to if you're visiting Europe anyway. Because it's just so different you, you go there and just culturally. It's completely different and just visually as well on these desert towns and and these markets and everything is is a whole different little world. It's, it's I like to have these sort of immersive experiences when I travel, and that's really definitely possible in Morocco, whether he in the Sahara where it's just sand stretching out as far as you can see or you're, you're going through a little towns market place, and there's just so many smells and spices and different things going on there so much tippety. So that's just that's just I think one of the most appealing things about Morocco. It just feels like a very, very unique in different place.

I'm in Australia, the US to snowboarding festival, music festivals in Europe and got a whole variety of festivals, which we call anything that's read anything this right. But did you get into that because he bit of an adventure travel yourself? Is that how you gonna? Yes. So I guess my main particular post fifteen is. My my main sort of goal would would traveling was to do something predominate around surfing and action sports related, say surfing, snowboarding, mountain, biking, the sites now being not fatigued. Well, there's plenty on it, and obviously these cost is about Marocco. So I had a bit of a such on what is happening in Marocco outside of the markets and outside the Sahara desert. There are actually music festivals, and there's a big sifting coach surfing now that the module drought rather than serving in the two together, it's amazing of I'm originally from from from London and. We would always have friends and all I or golf on on satellite trips. And I'm, we'd plan and setting occasions wouldn't want not just in Europe, but the close to London and America the the capital of surfing tag is an academic is about four hour flights from London and on a daily flights that and it's a completely different world and sort of fest time I went there, there's probably about ten years ago. And then since then sort of being back numerous times and predominate just just to go surfing because it's such an incredible place is it Mediterranean say, so it's it's on the Atlantic on on the Atlantic Ocean. It cuts in on the north in in rotten edge of ocean in in the north of Morocco breaks into the Mediterranean. But the main sort of surfing is sort of base around the central central Marocco name now. I dare and then south from the Western Sahara all the way up. There's amazing waves. And yeah, it's w on some of the some of the areas are getting a bit more Bimbo popula. But yeah, if you if you take, if you take a drive, you can definitely find an empty empty yourself. So for those people that understand, sipping tombs, what kind of breaks out I us so breaks.

I'd say the UK in Scotland is got a pretty big sane it. It's cold. He'd have fairly thick Whitson thing. But yeah, we'll all around around the UK sort of homeland Devon in the in the south. And then yes, Scotland's. Amazing, Norway, got some incredible waves. And then now I guess this will be -cations which is sort of code will to surfing destinations that people are sort of licking today. Once they've done all the ones around the equator and all that tropical kind of location when you're in back to Morocco, when they won't, what's it like in terms of safety. I mean, there's one or two that patrol, but the majority of of the surfing spots. Yeah, you're left to your own devices. The other is much more safety, but if you'll, it's sort of this this plenty of sports for beginners, intermediate, Cephas advanced said as a variety of breaks speech breaks. And yeah, that sort of. There's there's a big infrastructure around the setting that now, so people can go and stuff camps on this people all over the world all every year, coming to Morocco, two weeks, suffering experience, and some of them sort of incorporated with yoga, and you stay in these amazing camps in places and normally sort of go out every day doing doing.

"We chased after him and we just hosed every location down and shot until they kicked out and ended up shooting all of it. Practically the Tom free riding on my infinitely infinitely more dangerous than the one in Morocco Morocco. He's flat out on a highway. Yeah, it's going into straight line going to Paris on cobblestones and bike. That's not meant to perform like that was very dangerous. So heart heart mouth time as a. I was convinced it was going badly there moments. There's a moment where the stunt drivers are trained to inch their lives. And I recall a counter Reeves while he was shooting speed and he was on the highway chase, and he was worried that he might hit some cars on when the stunt guy said them. These are the best drivers in the world. You couldn't hit them. If you try if you if you get in their way, they will swerve out of is the same with mission. You know, you have Tom who's highly trained, but he stunk there's a moment where there's a car spears into Eaton's path and he'd just swerves around there. Great. But there's also there were local guys in a language barrier? Yeah, and there was one moment where you know Tom is racing through cross traffic and it. There was a miscommunication and he almost was nailed the side of this car because the guy was just not where he was supposed to be right. That was that was very, very scary. Oh my God. Yeah, you would like to think that, but what you laugh. Yeah, no, since you said there was like. I don't know. I don't know what movie they were working on. Guys are the best, but no, they were, but they were very good, don't get wrong. They were the best and going around the arc Triomphe was very, very dangerous. Thomas able to do that very safely complexity only choreography must have been astonishing. But yeah, you know, it's it's when we, when we did something like the doctor Triomphe we get there in the morning and Wade, Wade, is there early with all of those cars in content, concentric circles, adjusting their speed and and developing a system of language with them so that he can on on a whim. The center circle can go faster or slower. Everybody's kind of very, very, very dialed in, but then a lot of it is with what we had to do. A lot of it was improvisational. We got there and showed up and said, Dr. What are we going to do with the St.. Amazing. One of my colleagues park out of the screening and the motorbike Jason particular think they, they're palms sweaty. And he said, there's no way that was all Tom, there's no way all. Oh yeah. No, there's no stunt writer anywhere or stunt pilot the only time Tom's not at the controls of the helicopter are when the helicopters carrying that payload. Okay, because that's another rating that we didn't have time to. Yeah. So when you see the helicopter flying up over Henry's helicopter, that's a different guy flying copter, but everything else Tom's flying driving skydiving. There is one shot in the movie where you can't see his face and I had a double do it because you couldn't see him. He'd gladly done it, but you could you and and he had he would have really risked aggravating his ankle injury. It's that shot rolling down the roof of the, oh yeah, the the one refute where he falls away from us and hits and rows away. That's Tom. But then the big wide shot that you shows them rolling down the roof. That's a stunt guy and that's and that's only because his ankle was broken and you can't see that it's Tom. Yeah. So I'm like, why are we doing this? Why would why would you do this stunt? Don't do it. I remember Thomas, I do it. Got dammit. Oh, and we were gonna do a stunt when he's running across Blackfriars bridge. He was going to bash through the glass of breakfast. Blackford bridge bounce off the roof of removing train and body slam a guy that he thought was Walker and it was Walker would have put the tracking device on this before we established that the tracking device was actually the thing in the neck eventually phoned us.
