Dr. Jean-Christophe Plantin Discusses Digital Media Infrastructures and Tech Platforms
"Let me turn it over to dr zone. Christoph plantain again. He's an associate professor in the department of media and communications at the doctor plantain. Thanks so much for taking the time out and welcome to the social media and politics podcast. Thanks for having me really happy to be here so to start out here. Why don't we break down a few of the key concepts that you've been developing in your research and the first one i'd like to discuss is media infrastructures which draws attention to this interplay between digital platforms. Which is kind of the services that we're all familiar with and the physical infrastructures that make those platforms work. And i think. Maybe we're not all familiar with those. So could you outline the concept of media infrastructures for us and why we should even be thinking about media infrastructures in the first place. Absolutely yeah you allow me to be a little idiosyncratic and just tell me a little bit how. I came to these concept. Maybe that would. That would be helpful just because this is a history that i guess we'll be telling on how we can put these different concepts together. My background is in a media. Medication studies and i worked a lot since my phd. On the concept of blood. I worked lots a studied. Participatory mapping google maps. Open street map and we are here. Yeah mid-2000s is still the whip. Two point zero seeking pretty strong and the type of scholarship at the time. Emphasizes the participatory nature off these pot for allowing people to post more easily to create to engage in activism or creative practices. so that was my standpoint. that's what i really started with A post doctoral fellowship at university of michigan and with my colleagues where i became much more more familiar with the concept of infrastructure. I worked a lot with polite words. Carla goes the christian. Send vague and these folks are much more on the stf side of these topics of the study of technolog- and the where of course talking about and they were talking about large distribution systems. They're put together via standards and gateways in these type of things but what was super interesting when we started working together and focusing more on the facebook and google's of the world. Is that what. I was describing. As platform there were describing as infrastructure.

Stellar Community Fund: Payments and Beyond
"I know there's been an explosion of partnerships you guys have a stellar community fund in in all kind of go down this path throughout the throughout the discussion. But first and foremost like yeah. Give us some updates on what you what you've been working on lately for the last few months sure Over the last few months the stellar ecosystem has really grown up in part of that has to do with just organic growth. More people coming in finding the platform figuring out ways to use it building. Cool things part of it also has to do with partnerships that the stellar development foundation which is really the nonprofit organization at stewart's network. We're also trying to find people and work with people to help them integrate on stellar into us the network to to great effect right so we've also had a lotta great Partnerships that have come together of the past quarter and a lot of those have to do. With anchors anchors on stellar are basically what we call the organizations that accept deposits a fiat currency and issue credits on the network. So they're sort of the on ramp from the network and for the stellar vision of the world. There will be the goal is to get anchors and all these different markets because the network itself is asset agnostic and represent any currency. So the ideas. You get all. These anchors represent different fiat currencies on the network because the network has built an order books. You can easily exchange does makes it really good not just for like currency exchange but also things like cross border payments so we were a lot on getting more anchors onto the network and some of the big ones are sorry. Go ahead no no. Yeah that's interesting like which is one of my questions actually down the road. You're touching on it. It's like what time of what type of assets are you guys focused on there. There's tons of fiat. Are you also looking at like other cryptocurrencies or stocks. You know other types of assets data from from the traditional world you know. Is there any kind of focus or priority from from an acre sam point. Yeah the first priority for the organization. Stf stellar development foundation. I'll just probably call it. Stf from now on foot on the sdf's focus primarily at this point is on the currencies. So you know we have. We work with anchors a lot of them. We have a usd anchor just announced a new partnership with us dc. So you'll see see is going to be issued on stellar. We have a euro anchor and then we have a lot of anchors in africa and latin america in the first priority is to get those fiat currencies a representative on the network because they're good on off-ramps and because they connect people in their real lights right if you have a digital version of a currency that you can spend in your life. It's a lot more useful and we're definitely focused on practical real world use cases however there are also some really cool projects on stellar that deal in other currencies are the issue other currencies. The first i'll mention is d. Stock d. s. t. o. d. stock essentially represents a stocks on on on stellar network. As it's an app that you can use and you can basically accent trade Digital representations of stocks tesla's stock school stocks apple stocks and. It's cool because they also partner with some of these On so that it gives access to those stocks in the ability to train them to people in in markets where it's not necessarily easy to get access to those stocks right so in in nigeria where you can use the nigerian naira anchor that we have to on ramp. That company called khoury. You can then deposit that money into an account with these stock in trade stock so there's also stock trading in. Finally you asked that other cryptos yet. There are Stellar well with any payment rail including other crypto other blockchain's because you can create a digital representation of bitcoin her either just as you can of dollar nigerian naira or apple stock so we have solid that basically you can hold a stellar is version of that asset and you can redeem it by deposit giving it back to the anchor who will give you that value on the other chain so yeah there are also criticized other cryptos represented for sure

"stf" Discussed on Scientific Sense
"To explain why why neutrinos end up not working after all Another it's another disappointment in with regard. The. Other fundamental parameter is the Hubble Yes. Hubble. Constant. And You got fair amount of precision around that does STF says in w map, and then I understand that there was another measurement from the Supernova that seem to sort of divide. So this is this is very much observe I was saying earlier that there's great excitement or there's great eagerness in the scientific community to find chinks in the armor to find discrepancies and what you're referring to exactly that so. As as Your listeners may know the Hubble constant measures the expansion rate of the universe, and there's a whole variety of different ways to do this, and the stormers have been trying to do this since the time of Hubble himself back. In the Nineteen Nineteen Thirties And now the measurements have gotten astonishingly precise and one way to to its expansion rate of the universe. It's a measure of how fast the galaxy is moving away relative to its distance. So That sounds straightforward. You measured the distance you measure how fast it's moving away from the redshift you're done. So that's one one. Approach and Many different variants on that particular theme. But crudely speaking the number that comes out and funny astronomer units is about seventy two or seventy three. When the the other way to do it is to measure measure the detailed fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background from I still being map, and now you mentioned the the planck satellite which has made more precise measurements, and that gives you slightly more indirectly a measure of expansion rate of the universe and when you go through that in the same funny units, the number comes out to be seven. So sixty seven versus seventy, three ish, and then everyone just starts arguing and so is someone made mistakes mistake or systematic error. What happens if we use other measurement that gets a seventy one instead of seventy three. At the moment, it looks like real discrepancy which has gotten people all excited again because it says, this is you know we were getting a little bored by just how beautifully everything was putting together. We need we need something to give us a new handle on something we we really wanted to discover something fundamentally new rather than. Just just see it off it beautifully.

"Hello Possum Kingdom your very own Space Daddy Adam here for this week's intro. Today I wanted to take some time to talk about tone in Games. As you all know we have shifted from the space cowboys versus Evil Empire vibe to a horror in technology feel with signal of screams. I feel like we've discussed horror specifically a good bit in preparation for this ap but I wanted to focus a bit more on creating the tones you may want to have in your game. One. Of the best and most important methods of setting the tone for your game is using session Zeros to your advantage. This is the time to discuss what kind of vibe you is. The GM want to have for the particular Gamer setting it allows you to align with the players expectations in interest. For example. STF has had some discussions about the importance of allowing moments to generate suspense and fear by trying our best to resist are natural urges to make jokes to break the tension. This kind of thing has to be articulated as a playgroup assuming that your players or your gm knows what you are thinking is a road that often leads to frustration or disappointment. Secession Zeros are hugely important for the initial tone setting process. Now which you get in the game, what are some things you can do to help further establish the mood that you're wanting to have for me one of my biggest resources is finding appropriate. To, immerse the players paint that auditory picture for the scene. There are plenty of amazing resources out there though I will shout out both tabletop. And Incompetent which is Kevin Macleod's hosting site. That both have tons and tons of great music at your disposal, both these are built right into role twenty jukebox functionality to if you're using that virtual tabletop. So you set your expectations and you've got your music going, what else can you do to help establish that perfect vibe you want for your session Find some evocative artwork. The officially published products from Pozo and not RPG publishing companies come stocked with some great illustrations but they are restricted by page count. So why not use the Internet and find all sorts of artwork that just a vibe. Of a particular setting or a scene that you're trying to establish. Places like deviant art and pinterest are fantastic resources for more visuals For, more visual stimulation for your players. Finally you as the GM or narrator have a responsibility to adjust your cadence to the tone if it is a suspenseful scene, take your time and really lean into those dramatic pauses. Give. The players time to lean forward in anticipation. You may be really excited to get to that cool monster that's hiding behind the crate, take a breath and set up the shadows. Strange sounds. The flecks of blood spattered on the floor. All these things helped, draw your players into the sea. So there is anticipation intention that elevates the reveal of that body in the shadows. Maybe you have a really intense action scene, this is where you can pick up the pace of your delivery even slightly rushing players turns to ramp up the intensity, but always make sure you're still conscious of articulating the details. Even if your rate of speech increases something, I still need to work on regularly parsley. And now, I will speak to all you players out there. If your GM is clearly setting up something big give them the time and respect to finish their description. This is important because not only does it allow for the narrator to properly set the scene, but it gives you the opportunity to actually hear all the details because who knows what nuggets of Info may be injected into that exposition. That goes for letting your fellow players finish their descriptions as well. In any case, there is a lot that goes into making the right tone, but as is the case with almost all gaming advice. The most important thing is communicating as a table. That's my quick dip into tone perhaps heath and I can dig further into this on a future Tom. Talks. But for now, we gotta move on. got a couple quick announcements before we get into this week's episode. This month's GM. Happy Hour will be happening this Tuesday September fifteenth on hideous laughter's discord server starting at seven PM Central. These discussions have been a lot of fun and we really enjoy having y'all there in the live streams egging us on. Speaking of a shift in tone, we will be discussing character death so it should be a doozy. Also part four of hideous tomfoolery has dropped join members of STF An. H. L. P. as we continue our ruined through the attack of the swarm, you can find the link to these episodes on our discord. It's a particularly fun batch. So get on that. Just a reminder. That we could still really use reviews I know that every podcast. Asked for these but that is because it really really helps us get kind of that exposure in that presence that we need. So if you have a few minutes and you haven't given us a review yet, please just give us a little quick note. Let us know what you like best listener, which don't just get it in there if you got the time be much appreciated. Also, just want to remind you that emerge store is live on our website. So you can head over there and get you some great stf APA SWAG and finally. have an exciting announcement just want to announce that southern Tomfoolery will be participating in the new podcast Crossover Extravaganza Super Smash Finder.

A sitting in my apartment in Kawasaki and I'm on Mama bed my phone is we we we like.

Okay. Gotcha so so it Down so how bad was going to actually be right? Yeah. Do you feel like you're military's a pretty advanced? Japan doesn't have a military. Oh, no, we have. We have the US that's right but you don't have any. You don't have any military assistance. Japan has the STF, the Super Defence Force, the Special Defense Force. Equipped like the US military like they have f twenty two raptors up. But they're like a much smaller after world. War Two they had to sign like a decree that they couldn't have a standing army. Offense. Force of x amount of people and whatever. So they have. Similar technology but they're not don't have a standing army. Gajah. Okinawa, all the bases in Okinawa there's a there's a base in Zama, which is like maybe twenty minutes from where I live. There's people here. So America has an interest of not having their own people get bombed. Yes. So realistically, they'll mobilize if they really have to Gotcha Yeah Yeah I, you know for forgetting about world, war two and stuff like that. It's it's so funny I mean obviously it was you know about one hundred years ago started me a less than one hundred years ago and stop. But yeah we kind of got over and we're kind of we're all kind of friendly chill like after even Germany as well. I? Think it's interesting. Some people some people. Yeah. You've to people in Okinawa a lot of people like we don't want the Americans their interesting. Really. Yeah.

"But you know as it went forward, the prime minister's did not present a lot of play Evalu-. Because like you're getting the same, we'll mini figure, but it doesn't interact with the other toys and nearly the same way and the prices being padded out by this shell that theoretically has a weapon mode is really just the shell laying down with extra piece sticking off. And with the battle masters in my opinion, it got even worse because then you were only getting one piece of something in the packaging and that couldn't do anything on its own at all at least. Now we're to the point where they transform into boards I mean. I'm not surprised to see it go away. Yeah. It's. It's like if you look back on it. Since the start of times return it there's a definite decline in what the price point has been able to offer. And I think a lot has to do with the economics of it, but also trying to figure to tie that price point into the play pattern for every new generation. One thing before I move onto the next part of the deluxe list of warpath has been said by again while the awesome inside Info people that much like cliff jumpers mold there is a removable shield part that's part of the transformation, which in this case seems to be used to stop the tank for being an H. Tank. So. It escapes that trap of the previous generations warpath the one that wasn't a retool of legends. Megatonne apart that fits in between his feet. I. Would assume probably or fits between the treads in the back one or the other. And you know that kind of parts warming I can kind of understand especially for one of these smaller molds because like you can put a lot of articulation and but there's not a lot of room to engineer stuff with the complexity or to hide part. So. More forgiving that. Yeah Okay. So next up, we have a wheel Jack and Laura down the list also are see and these have been reinforced as being just repackaging of the earth is figures so. Yeah, they're not even supposed to be like. In any way okay. They're the ones on the list that I was like wait a minute. Why would be be getting them again? Yeah. But more inconsolable I'm. But A, but also seeing tracks he was going to say Chris that does not surprise me if the redoing we'll jack they're probably using tracks from the Will Jack. Mola's what I'm thinking about like they did for generations while a retail wheel jack is possible for tracks I. Think another thing we should consider is that it would be done off the battle charger mold. Yeah. No? Yeah. Forgot about that because I think the I think overall robot lay out of that and the proportions probably lend themselves a little bit better to making attracts out. Love. And of course, also tracks gives rise to the very distinct possibility. Vase selects road rage. And allowed pedal. Yeah I was. GonNa. Say That's the thing I'm more interested in seeing. Get made is allowed pedal off of off of this apparent tracks mold or read one hundred percent mean if the if the toys good, you know I'll. Take whatever? Well Yeah for sure. But the they're the most important thing on this list is slammer. Dad. Well, if it ends up being a weapon either I mean, it could just be a normal. The looks what if the place play-set based on the Ark is not the traditional. But metroplexes. Move that he had. So they're working the METROPLEX back into it. That's why we're getting the slammer is just going to be the ARC in this new whatever is GonNa be metroplexes the ARC. slammers because the metrics I think we're just getting slammer because they need. The Warpath Mold That's very true. We metroplex had a ship mode. Kind of. Sort of. I mean on the original toy ahead, leary's. If you're being generous because I've seen ninety w all the METROPLEX I, just shooting into space to do the whole conversation thing. And they and they're the lay down rolling ground mode was re purposed into a flight mode by some kind of we're discount. STF One. Yes. More or less whenever allow that? Yeah. Next year Titan ARC is just a war for cyber tron or false metroplex in orange. No That would never happen. Okay. So everything else we have on here is these words related since already jumped ahead to slammer Which I'm sure was not an accident at all. No. I figured you'd want to separate the beast worth stuff out so I was considering that. So. Unexpectedly we have shadow panther on here which will obviously be a redecoration possibly mild retool of cheater. Yes. I thought he would have been a selects. You would think but apparently not. I guess we have to get you know a straight repaying or very close to repaint in in something. We've also got WASPA- neater. I. Think I mentioned Aries earlier Scorpene ACC- so that Thing. Yeah. That's odd considering. You know we've got tightened class Scorpio knockout right now it's. The thing is a little funny that they're putting out a different. Scorpio, knock. So close to the last one, but Titan will be off shelves by then by off shelves I mean out of production. And I was GONNA. Say Scorpio knock is weird for a deluxe class, but then I do have that Rfid Scorpion. Chris, it could certainly be conceivable to Scorpion aqua be a smaller deluxe with some of the taken up by the tail and also maybe like the cyber be. As an accessory. Yeah. It's a deluxe class, but not everything has to be the same size as cliff jumper has proven. And Bug by Bumblebee and hubcap.

And so when do you use it would tell me when you use windy a up on a kid I don't I will be honest right now I've actually never had the opportunity STF on a child right as of now. Usually most those kids are coming to me well. So, in my private practice I don't see a Lotta rampant caries on one or two euros in my mind is that STF in little ones when I say little ones, I mean anyone are they just six? It's when you're trying to avoid your. Child you know you don't WanNa do generalist Asia on a one year old or not many. Pediatric.

Some Frank Decay on the molars I would say you know what? Let's will STF on these teeth in next year come back when they're four because there's a big difference between three and a four year old. You know a four year old can tolerate two visits and I can do two quads per visit. The three zero can give me one visit But. I'd like US STF three-year-old, just kind of him through six months to a year, and then we can do some definitive rush autumn and that's how I used it honestly Kevin has has lost his microphone.

Islamic State leader leaves a legacy of terror
"This is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm Michelle Martin we're gonna begin this hour with that major announcement today from president trump in the morning press conference at the White House the president announced that the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al Baghdadi had been eliminated that was trumps work only Daddy was one of the world's most wanted figures he was killed and his Syrian safe house by US commander rate we can have several conversations about this about who al Baghdadi was and what this means for the region we're going to start with NPR's Daniel Estrin in Beirut and national security correspondent Greg my re here in our studios in Washington DC and Greg I'm going to start with you let's first start with the details the timeline of the operation president trump gave a vivid cinematic description of what happened here he said eight American helicopters went into this small village they land they don't go into the front of this compound they blast through the walls the interest they track down al Baghdadi and the president says that how Baghdadi has a suicide vest and three kids with them he detonates this killing himself killing the kids no American casualties except for a military dog I think the number of people have been struck by the level of detail that the the president you know offer here including descriptions of what he claims were up and down his last moments did that strike you as a person is cover these issues for sometime was it unusual for that kind of announcement beyond unusual actually quite remarkable I mean this would all fall into the category of classified top secret information for him to just come out and riff and take questions on this providing this this granular level of detail was quite striking and then his defense secretary came on it was mark espera was much more tight lipped about the whole operation today I let me turn to you what's been the reaction in the region I mean you're in Lebanon at the moment and but if you've been following this throughout the region including in Syria what's been the reaction there we've been hearing a whole mix every action from inside Syria we spoke with the researcher in the city of Rucka he's been researching ISIS crimes in the city when isis was there and he says this is a moment of celebration you know trump gave a list of the victims of ISIS you mentioned American journalists humanitarian aid workers killed Christians killed disease killed but actually most of isis is victims were Muslims and just in Syria alone approximately six thousand civilians were killed by ISIS so Syrians civilians I feel very strongly about this man but there is a lot of skepticism this researcher the Syrian man we spoke with thought the US had its own interests in killing Baghdadi he said the US wants to grab Syrian oil which we heard trump's speak about we're also hearing from many Syrians who are skeptical that apple buckle but Daddy actually died they've heard several times before in the past that he had died turned out to be fake news they say we haven't seen the pictures how do we know for sure and we also reached a few Syrians in in live but the city where I'll Doug Daddy was reportedly given safe haven and was targeted living there seems very careful with their words or didn't want to speak at all and they could be scared of retribution from ISIS so Daniel the president thanked many countries in his announcement starting with Russia and Turkey then including Syria and Iraq the Syrian Kurds as well but in that order and that was striking to a number of people what about that I mean does that show that the Kurds are still important players in fighting the extremist threat despite president trump's decision to back away from well it's a very interesting to hear how the the STF the Kurdish led forces in Syria have been speaking about what happened today first of all their top commander said that they had been tracking Abu Bakr al Baghdadi is movements and location for the last five months that they were part of the intelligence cooperation in planning for the US to nab about Daddy but that that operation was delayed by a month because of the recent Turkish offensive after we heard that about Daddy was killed they praise the operation they said it was a joint Curtis U. S. operation just days ago though we heard from the top commander they were very upset with Donald Trump for withdrawing US troops and leaving them exposed to a Turkish offensive what Greg this comes at a time when a standard just point out the president's pulling US troops out of Syria putting a stop to what he has called endless wars it is there a contradiction in US policy then between wanting to destroy ISIS and other terror groups overseas but still wanting to bring US forces home I mean is there a contradiction US policy a fundamental contradiction that's existed throughout the the president's time in office we're going to hit all of these groups whether it's ISIS of the Taliban or al Qaeda but it's time to bring Americans home and the president seem not bothered by this contradiction today he said we we carried out a very successful operation in Syria and yes we're still bringing the troops home he seem to see it as as so you see we can do both while critics are already saying no you can't this was an operation that required a special operators in the US working with Kurds and you want to leave an area of the intelligence goes cold very quickly so you you can't really have it both ways you can stay and fight or you can leave but hard to do both before we let each of you go I do want to hear from each of you on this what is the strategic significance of the death of opportunity right the death of al Baghdadi does not end ISIS we've learned that time and again when the leaders of terrorists groups are killed however you should also look at the number of things that have happened in the past couple of years ISIS has lost its territory it's lost its revenue streams it no longer has recruits flowing in and now they've lost a very important leader this group is not dead they still have lots of fighters out there but they are in no way organized the way that they were so they've been greatly weakened but they still exist Daniel what about you it's true that ISIS isn't dead it exists in many different permutations and groups across the region and finally the city it live is a place where we're hearing many ISIS operatives fled to that area after the fall of the ISIS territorial caliphate and the question is will they be able to regroup there that was and personally scar Spahn Daniel Estrin in Beirut and national security correspondent quick Myrick here in our studios in Washington DC thank you both so much for talking to us my pleasure thanks we're going to turn now to someone whose life was directly affected by Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and the rise of ISIS James Foley was an American journalist covering the civil war in Syria in two thousand twelve he was captured in northern Syria by ISIS and held captive for nearly two years then in two thousand fourteen he was killed in a gruesome manner beheaded in what would become something of a signature of the Islamic state he was the first American to be killed by ISIS in his honor and name his mother I am fully created the James W. fully legacy foundation which advocates for the safe return of American hostages abroad and protection of journalists and she's with us now from her home via Skype thankfully thank you so much for speaking with us today my pleasure we shop how are you reacting to today's events well we're very grateful my shall we have to be I am very grateful to president trump our intelligence community and the military for fall waiting and finding al Baghdadi and stopping him our he obviously wanted to continue to regroup and continue his reign of terror so it is a blow to isis and I'm very grateful we had there US troops in country to make that happen ask you though today what does this does this bring up anything for you I mean I know what you know the word closure is so controversial people think it's some people think it's ridiculous some people think it it actually kind of capture something or says something does the death of this person who who because your son's death does this bring anything for you does it and anything for you does that term what what is it bring up for you well it protects others from whatever he was planning to do start money the thing that would bring me the most solace is does ISIS fighters who have been captured I would like them to be brought to trial and the federal criminal court here in the U. apps I'm grateful that two alleged Jack hottest Cody and I'll shake our impact in US custody and I'm hoping they'll be brought to trial but there are thousands of others and I feel it's very important that the international community hold them responsible by bringing them to trial and if convicted put away for the rest of their lives how do you hope the elder Jerry might be captured alive so that he could face trial yes he would have been able to answer so many questions but it appears he detonated himself he didn't want that to happen so he wanted to be a martyr for his because I'm sure so obviously that would have been the past the more we can take into custody and bring to trial the better however as you can see from there and present is that it's hard to find the will to bring them to trial and there's a lot of blocks in that regard but I feel that is necessary to actually stop terrorism is to bring these folks who inflicted such terror to try and hold them accountable for their horrific Dietz we let you go how does this how does the work of the fully foundation proceed does the does al Baghdadi is death affect the work of the foundation in anyway well anytime we can capture people who are from loading hostage taking which he surely wise that is a win he wives using human victims to inflict yes terror on the country and the citizens in that area so yes of course that's a help I would just or that our administration might give a higher priority to innocent Americans when they first taken hostage to maybe hopefully prevent some of that horrific crime so but I I certainly applaud today's victory and it is a victory for the free world was stand for Lee she's the president and founder of the James to be fully legacy foundation she's the mother of the slain US journalist James Foley who was killed by ISIS in two thousand fourteen she was with us today via Skype painfully thank you so much for talking with us thank you so much for
Turkey-Syria crisis: Five-day "ceasefire" runs out today
"The US brokered ceasefire in northern Syria ands today meanwhile Turkey's president Recep Tayyip Erdogan is meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin to talk about the crisis one launched a military offensive in northern Syria about two weeks ago with the stated goal of clearing Kurdish fighters from the area Turkey also wants to resettle about two million Syrian refugees there who currently are living in Turkey with me now is Douglas Elliman he's president of the Arab Gulf states institute here in Washington DC from two thousand eight to two thousand eleven he served as the deputy cheaper as the deputy chief of mission at the US embassy in Turkey he's also a former US ambassador to Iraq and Kuwait good morning ambassador good morning well always one's actions on Syria fit into his broader agenda for Turkey what does he want for his country I think basically what everyone wants is to prevent the emergence in eastern Syria of any stronger unified Kurdish governing structure and as long as American troops were there with the Syrian democratic forces especially up along the border it was very difficult for him to go against the militarily because a NATO ally was working with the STF he has a secondary goal however of preventing physical and political connections between Syrian Kurds who live in the west of Syria near it live and north of Aleppo and the east of Syria the one for talking about here and maybe finally it's almost always good politics in Turkey two counter pose Turkish nationalism against Kurds and the very real PKK terrorist threat that has been going on for the past three decades in Turkey so this also gives him a domestic political bump against his enemies by showing that he is strong against a potential Kurdish terrorist enemy and help out this meeting between her to one and and put in today what's the relationship like at this point between Turkey and Russia well everyone has been working for most of the past decade on expanding Turkey's relations in addition to those of its traditional allies the United States NATO in Europe everyone sees himself as an emerging real regional and world leader but when I was in Turkey in two thousand ten airline signed with Putin and worked with the Russian company to build Turkey's first nuclear power plant which is still not finished but there has also been have been attempts to expand the places from which Turkey by defense equipment the S. four hundred air defense missiles from from Russia he wants to see itself is no longer completely tied to the west and wants to look to the east and to the south as well for allies and expansion of its economic political and military influence and does the United States need to be worried about that to the extent that the United States depends upon Turkey as being only a traditional NATO ally it is an issue for the United States expanding to the east sure to China to the south into the Arab world doesn't necessarily mean that Turkey cannot be perform the goals that it has of the things that is done within the NATO alliance but it will mean that Turkey will be calibrating its domestic interest in its foreign policy interests and security interests differently than it has in the past so the United States needs to make sure that we know what we want from Turkey and Turkey in the NATO alliance and economically and then try to use our influence to bring airline to that conclusion as well how could Russia's involvement here affect US foreign policy in the region his foreign policy is becoming more aggressive in the Middle East especially now in Syria with the departure of US forces are Russia has already a large role in keeping the I should I said regime in power in Damascus they have been actively working with the Syrian regime with the Iranians and Ronnie and proxies in eastern Syria and what I expected as American forces withdraw as the Turks go in you'll see an expansion of Russian influence Russian participation with the Syrian regime into this territory that the crews had hoped to control in eastern Syria for me former deputy chief of mission at the US embassy in Turkey Douglas Elliman thanks so much for

Turkey's Erdogan won't meet with Pence and Pompeo
"On Tuesday the White House announced the vice president Mike hands and secretary of state Mike Pompeii are traveling to Turkey as part of a delegation to negotiate a ceasefire and settlement in northern Syria his pants discussing a phone call between president Donald Trump and Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan president trump communicated to him very clearly and that the United States of America wants Turkey to stop the invasion implement an immediate ceasefire and to begin to negotiate a with Kurdish forces in Syria to bring an end to the violence but air to one told reporters yesterday that he is rejecting calls for a ceasefire while remaining open to negotiations with US officials this rapidly changing situation began when president trump announced a withdrawal of American forces from northern Syria just last week it was a decision that was widely condemned by some of his strongest supporters since then Turkish forces and Russian forces have advanced into northern Syria and Kurdish forces are under siege joining me now for an update on what's happening our Washington post reporter Dan Lamont who covers the military an owner on to Bloomberg Turkey bureau chief thank you both for joining me thanks yes owner before we get into the specifics of what's happening let's pull back for a second and try to understand the geo politics at play among others Russia is widely seen as benefiting from the current events in the region how cell I think the last ten days or so boosted Russia's role the said as the main power broker in Syria in general and the north of the country more than it was ever the case that's mainly due to a few reasons led by American decision to throw the subways troops from the area with church match is operating in addition and which was kind of an unexpected decision by the Americans we saw that US that coalition forces already also withdrew from the key border town of mine beach in northern Syria it's not exactly on the Syrian Turkish border but this is not very far away from it and with that decision was so that the Syrian regime forces backed by the Russians to cover mine beach which was at the heart of the long standing role between Turkey and the US bottom line I think is the fact that in all these areas with Turkey remain party at this active in the area the last eight years now is finding that Russia is reading the parts that should deal with in order to seek a solution to its own problems rather than the US in the region now finds it probably a lot more practical just to deal with the Russians instead of read the warning about what the American forces that sis are up to in the areas where it has its eyes so who else has benefited from the situation would you say what along with Russia their main partners in the Syrian war which is the central government in Damascus I think I'd be great Spanish fisheries when we come to Turkey we see that it's a lot more complicated situation where one can talk about maybe some bottles battlefields advances and and and possibly even a victory eventually but it's hard to see how exactly Turkey's president could leverage that battlefield advance in order to emerge victorious leader at home for his domestic audience it's all very tricky and food at the moment I think the US government has shown its capability to read me hurt Turkey's economy and Turkey's government if it really wants to intense too and that could radically change that sort of the that the power balance with a power dynamic between Turkey and the U. S. at in the context of what's happening in Syria and and in terms of adult standing at home Dan to many observers the US is seen as having lost ground strategically why is that I mean objectively diss that a disintegration of American foreign policy out in Syria over the last five years on the Syrian democratic forces were the greatest part on on the ground are in the fight against the Islamic state I rapidly leaving northeastern Syria over the last couple days we have last our greatest partner in that fight on their own and forced to find help elsewhere watched very awkward images in the last couple days of things such as the Americans pulling out of man **** most recently on Tuesday we saw images of Russian forces moving into the basis of the basin managed in particular the Americans that just last a seemingly got their weapons and their vehicles out of but they left behind virtually everything else more less a move in ready base and said tell me Dan to what extent our notions of an Islamic state revival credible or is it premature I think it's a very credible concern there are numerous reports of ISIS fighters getting loose in the chaos most mostly over the weekend but it's a continuing concern as Turkey continues to how to push its boundaries there and with that you have both the Russians and the Syrian regime involved and just a very chaotic situation in general never mind his own right up until the announcement about the US troop withdrawal how was this region of Syria being governed who exactly was in charge of this region has been under the influence and and control of STF for quite sometime now S. yes that's what's your democratic force an important element insincere democratic forces is white P. G. which is eight armed Kurdish group and which is at the heart of the problem between Turkey and US because while the US has been set it's a transactional temporary at relationship with YPG knowing the luggage so to speak that comes with white peachy enters problems with it under has been adamant that it's unacceptable given a temporary transaction great ship to exist between Turkey at between the US and white peachy and that's because Turkey sees the YPG as merely the Syrian offshoot of the PKK that's a separate disorganization the truck has been fighting guest for decades in a bloody war and said organization that's because a today at terrorist group not only by Turkey but by the US and European Union as well this is the heart of the disagreement between Turkey and the US in northern Syria so present to one commented on the upcoming visit from the American delegation what exactly did you tell reporters present aired on today told reporters does reporter is that he's going to meet both plants and pump but more importantly what he said was this we are going to create this buffer zone to sectors of the security so no matter what but if you're really trying to look for a way out for a solution here's our proposal I'm calling on the Kurdish militants were actually said I'm committed terrorists to leave everything they have the ammunition the materials the guns behind and just leave what we call the safe zone northeast in Syria and then this new job creation automatically and naturally will come to an end so we think that this was at a loss way off showing a graceful way to end this chaos it's graceful in the sense that it would allow the Turkish president to go back to its domestic audiences say see I got what I wanted on the battlefield and politically and this is how I deliver my promises without really having to deal with an embarrassing me the tree or political circus show force with any of the players in Syria now whether or not that's something that the US can live with we don't know yet when pensive Pompeia are nonsense we're going to find out but we now know for sure that this is going to be the starting point for the church delegation and add on as they sit down with what vice president pence and a signature of state my computer so Dan in anticipation of that how exactly our national security advisers in the trump administration responding to these latest developments we've seen a situation where because the president chose to hold troops initially just away from the border and then over the weekend completely out of northeastern Syria where they don't have a huge gold at the table are they have a vote are they can pressure Turkey I they can press for sanctions that and they can price for allies to weigh in they don't have the usual influence that American foreign policy presence would have out so they're trying to keep the president on a on a path that's inserting some sort of pressure here but the the the the options they have are much more limited that they would have been dot two weeks ago now one senior administration officials said we're describe this is total chaos we seen really a you know back and forth in terms of policy as is being dictated by the trump administration a lot of backlash from some of his most ardent supporters to what extent are they responding to this backlash now I I think it's something that they're gonna have to eat and they're gonna have to explain for quite some time there was a pretty broad discussion over how the United States should get out of Syria there have been discussions for some time basically that the STF would at some point need to reach an agreement or deal of some kind with the Syrian government and the United States with access robin becomes the way in which this has happened over the last couple days you basically compressed what would have been months of discussions into it really just a you know a few days and as a result of that you've seen the chaos you seem to violence and you've seen the US military you know basically just quietly quietly exiting I stayed right while all of these other players are you are involved in great bloodshed what about current members of the US military how are they responding to all of this it hasn't been universal but I have heard a great deal of chagrin about this I have a great deal of disappointment about this many I see this as a betrayal of a great partner WestJet are no fewer than ten or eleven thousand lives in the battle against the Islamic state they were you know on the battlefield together they weren't firefights together and to kind of just rapidly leave them alone are on their own with the Turkish offensive coming is something that they never thought they would see how is this escalating conflict affected the civilian population in northern Syria from what we know so far one of the great concerns is that it's not just the Turkish military involved there's a number of basically in militants of sorts fighters that are aligned with Turkey but but there they don't play by the same rules all right so you've seen images of civilians being basically executed you've seen images of war crimes happening right in front
Syrian troops head to border as conflict intensifies in Turkey
"Syrian troops are massing near the Turkish border one day after Syrian president Bashar lasts and reached a deal to help protect the Kurds from Turkey is deadly air and ground assault on Sunday the courage agreed in a deal brokered by Russia to hand over to border towns to the Syrian government in exchange for protection the Kurds had been allied with the United States up until last week when president trump abruptly pulled US troops from northern Syria paving the way for Turkey's assault on Sunday defense secretary mark asper announced the US has ordered all remaining US forces out of northern Syria more than a hundred thirty thousand people have already been displaced over the past five days since Turkey invaded northern Syria the death toll is unknown Turkey says more than five hundred quote terrorists have been neutralized Turkey frequently refers to Kurdish groups as terrorist the Syrian observatory for human rights is reporting Turkish back proxies have shot dead nine Kurdish civilians including a prominent political leader have run a Khalaf who was killed along with her driver on Saturday she was the secretary general of the future Syria party Kurdish authorities are reporting seven hundred eighty five people affiliated with the Islamic state including many women and children escape from a Kurdish controlled displacement camp in northern Syria the escape the Kurdish Turkish back forces shelled nearby targets on Sunday president trump's former defense secretary James Mattis warned the current turmoil will lead to a resurgence of isis this comes as a New York times is reporting US forces fail to transfer five dozen high value Islamic state prisoners out of Syria before trump withdrew troops from northern Syria Turkey is facing increasing international condemnation for invading northern Syria the European Union has called on all member states to stop selling arms to Ankara to talk more about the situation in northern Syria were joined by a slam going on she is an assistant professor of sociology and anthropology at the City University of New York and a member of the emergency committee of roaches she is from Turkey and of Kurdish origin professor us long got our thanks so much for being with us can you talk about what you understand to be the latest situation now in northern Syria thank you for having me me well this situation as you just said that courage needed to have a deal so we need to just look at the situation just a little back and see that last year actually at the beginning of this year in January president trump once again said that he's going to with throw the troops from on Syria and so leaving the cards alone and this didn't happen because there was a lot of reactions against this and then at the time he had said that well we're going to do this but in time and in do you warning so that our allies there I can protect themselves with this didn't happen because just a random phone call this past week between Ardalan and trump he all of a sudden decided to take old troops out of there without any notice shin without any time for the Kurdish troops to protect themselves so once they were left unprotected it's important to realize that it's not just president trump but we tried very hard to develop international solidarity against this to call for a no fly zone so that even if the US troops get out of the place that the Kurds can be protected with their self defense measures on combined with the no fly zone so that Turkey cannot do air attacks which is the large majority of losses last time happened because of this so this did not take place this did not go through there's no protection no protection from the U. S. whatsoever it was just very prompt taking of the troops out of there so the Kurds in order to escape the genocide had to make a deal and this is a shame because they had to make a deal with a regime that has been repressing them for decades now in order to protect them so explain what this deal is and how it happened it was brokered by Russia yes it was brokered by Russia Russia basically once the U. S. withdrew from the region Russia became the major power in the region controlling and negotiating between Turkey assault forces and the STF the searing double credit forces so Russia is the only actor in the playing field right now in addition to you around but right now we're speaking of the Russian leadership and so the terms of the deal are is still on now because for for do you know for the part of the Kurds their urgent need for self protection and to prevent genocide made them just urgently accept this offer from the side regime they their hope is that they can keep their autonomy this is what the you know the leaders of the Syrian democratic forces were saying that this is just to protect the borders for now and to prevent to prevent the Turkish invasion Turkish war took as genocide I mean Kurdish genocide at the hands of the Turkish forces so and especially just you mentioned this and it's very important to understand the Turkey it's not just the ISIS fighters escape Turkey actually bombed the ISIS prison so that they can escape the Turkey is I mean actually surname also include the Turkish interior minister couple five days ago when asked that the TV pro Graham when Turks were concerned about the potential ISIS attack it was late to be comfortable no need to be concerned they don't have any option but to live with us so they're very openly align with isis let's go to president trump who is responding to questions from reporters last week asking what will happen to ISIS fighters in the region who are imprisoned and who could escape he said well the landscape to Europe this is what he said ISIS fighters escape and pose a threat elsewhere well they're gonna be escaping to Europe that's what they want to go they want to go back to their homes but Europe didn't want from us your response to a train trestle well this is the I mean you know this is just outrageous this is just outrageous I mean there is the re emergence and resurgence of isis that and because of trump's sudden decision to withdraw the troops without any protection once somewhere without any plan to do something with these ISIS fighters and also their families and it's very important to understand what we call ISIS families as women and children fighters they have done enormous human rights violations in the region's there's tons of interviews with these women in the camps in the refugee camps and so they are letting them free to kill the Kurds aligned with the Turkish forces so troops says that it's Europe's responsibility but trump said actually he said that the the ISIS writers will go to Europe and made very clear they will not come to the United States well I mean we know what happened we know how they can mobilize to attack and make terrorist attacks in all parts of the world so this is I mean and especially for someone who's been using this discourse of terror for such a long time and threats for such a long time it's it's outrageous not to see the imminent threat and it's outrageous to not see the cooperation of Turkey and the open statement that we're going to cooperate with isis that's we're going to use the forces the jihadist isis in addition to the Turkish land forces and air forces to attack and protected territory and and the only means that these people have is self defense and it's important to understand that this is not just the Kurds in the region who are under threat but the minorities and religious minorities who had been especially targeted by ISIS so they are looking for revenge they're looking for first exterminating the leftover populations that they started you know the room is the D. genocide that they had committed and then slave tells ins and I mean and letting them both all parade in that region and then saying they will go to Europe and we know the danger that they imposed to world this is basically president trump's full but also what do you say about trump tweeting today courage may be releasing some to get U.

A Look at Who Is Affected by Trump’s Shift in Syria
"And we're going to hear more it now about the president's shift in policy on Syria the shift is that US forces in northern Syria will stand aside while Turkey launches an offensive across the border president trump says it's time to let others step up and take responsibility for security in the region as we just heard there many critics who say the move amounts to the U. S. abandoning its Kurdish allies allies who have been key in the fight against ISIS what's not in dispute is that this is happening today US troops began pulling back from posts in northern Syria to talk about why this matters and what might come next I want to bring in Gail Samakh LeMond she's adjunct fellow at the council on foreign relations she has traveled to Syria six times in the last two years welcome great to join you which begin by describing this corner of Syria what does it look like what has been the relationship between the US forces base there and Kurdish fighters what you see on the ground in northern Syria is really fragile very much endangered but very real fight for normalcy right restaurants cafes little people going to school every day and every line including upper Fremont nor I I interview to rock a few months back for the third time said to me we just want to know what tomorrow will bring because we really want to build today hi this really is about the epicenter of the fight against extremism and the local folks on the ground who are doing the work and the US has been the odds like presence that has held this thing together with you also like prisons what do you mean like man behind the curtain type thing yes so no one sees the Americans on the ground I think so many people bring the lands of Iraq or Afghanistan to the discussion about Syria but when you were on the ground in northern Syria Mary Louise you'll never see the Americans so you see this very real stability you know that is facing peril from all kinds of corners that has been kept in place by local forces who have sat under this invisible blanket of American presence no that statement from the White House makes reference to many captured ISIS fighters for being held in detention facilities are families of those fighters being held in camps around the region can you describe what are the current conditions for those people in these facilities and and what might the implications of this White House announcement U. S. backed forces have held several thousand ISIS fighters of many of whom their home countries will not take back and have stripped of citizenship and these local forces also are holding more than sixty thousand ISIS family members they were prepared during the end of the ISIS fight for maybe twenty to thirty thousand and at the end it turned out to be more than sixty thousand basically this you know United Nations of isis is what I saw when I visited all whole camp in may and what I mean what do they look like what are the conditions there so is there a sprawling camp that was clearly never intended to hold as many people as it held now and you have a group of folks who fought ISIS who have now been asked to hold to care for to feed to provide sanitation for the families and children of ISIS fighters and they've willingly done so because the Americans have asked them to while pleading for resources to make sure that they can do so adequately so what might be the impact of this latest announcement from for the president the White House it's just focus on the women's so the wives of ISIS fighters they are by no means folks who all of whom have given up the Islamic state's ideology and in fact they would talk to people about how ISIS up would rise again so I think the fact that the U. S. backed forces are very worried they're going to have to take care of their own families instead of making sure that they can help figure out what to do with the ISIS families is something we're going to contend with now the US spec forces you're referring to the STF the Syrian defense forces you you talk to the head of those forces today this was a commander Muslim ideas that right I spoke with the STF and I had this morning and you know what he said was listed you know until as recently as yesterday we've been working with the Americans on a security mechanism to answer all of Turkey security concerns what happens next for us is that we will have to turn away from the ISIS fight to protect our own home we don't want that we know the Americans don't want that and we are ready to figure out what we could do to avoid this but if we have to we will fight I want to push you on what this could mean for ISIS not families of fighters left behind in in camps but whether this opens the door if the US has reduced presence in this part of Syria does not open the door for ISIS to come back and grow stronger everyone is waiting to see what this decision will mean in terms of what it looks like on the ground I think the big feeling that is held across the board is that the Islamic state benefits from a vacuum it benefits from chaos I think of this mom who fled rock eight and a half months pregnant who I've been following her story for the last two years and when I saw her in may she said please tell the Americans we will fight for our own future we just need a shot its stability and I think that is what this house like American presence has been able to create and it's been able to help moms like that who has been fighting their own front line war against the Islamic state you keep that fight and

"For the Islamic state's group total. Their total troop strength ever since it emerged and speculation has varied widely for a number of reasons. First of all we heard there might have been ten thousand twenty thousand thirty thousand is some people here have stretched up to sixty thousand nights and the caliphate. I would say twenty to thirty s probably where they were at. That doesn't count. Libya that doesn't count Africa that doesn't count Afghanistan. In the mix and other countries or they happened to be in right now because they continue to pop up in different places was a as they moved out of Syria. They wound up in different areas and formed up again. And the US will be staying in Syria. Along with troops from some other countries. And what might the other countries be you saying, well, probably the same countries that have forces there now. Like, France and Great Britain. So we'll have a little bit of. Coup d'etat going there if you will along with the Syrian forces the STF fighters that are there who by the way. Just don't seem to get along insert Turkey doesn't get along with them. And they already talked about the fact that they just as soon see them. All annihilated rather than to see him anywhere at all. And by the way. Where is? These Lomb extent leader. Abu Bakar dotty.

And they're calling on the United Nations Security council. The hold an urgent meeting on the US decision to recognize the golden heights as Israeli territory, which is claimed by Syria. Well, it might have been claimed by Syria, but years ago, they had this little thing called a war, and they lost the territory when Israel defeated them and part of what they got as part of the peace treaty. What's the Golan Heights and control of the golden heights?

Capital public radio's been reporting for us. Thanks so much. You welcome. So the battle to defeat ISIS in the eastern part of Syria seems to be slowing down. Now, the group has been surrounded by US-backed forces in a town called buckles in northern Syria. Isis fighters were told are resisting as they tried to defend what's described as the last pocket of territory, they control and they are allegedly using human shields. According to a spokesman for the Syrian democratic forces and pears. Peter Kenyon has been monitoring this fighting from his post in Istanbul. Hi there. Peter. Hi, david. Okay. So what is the latest in terms of the fighting? I know from the Trump administration. There have been some declarations of victory and then some some backing away from declarations victory. So how closer US-backed forces to actually claiming victory here. It looks like they're pretty close. How definitive hell final victory may be is what remains an open question. I think over the weekend the STF's Syrian democratic forces trying to seize this last square mile of ISIS control said this is going to be over in a matter of. Days, but there could still be some intense fighting between now and then as commanders say some of those airstrikes by the US led coalition targeted vehicle bombs that have been left by ISIS. There was a Twitter post by the spokesman who said three car bombs were taken out by the airstrikes. He also tweeted that the battle to retake the last ISIS hold out is going to be over soon. There are estimates own hundreds of ISIS fighters are left promising to keep fighting it does sound or at least they're trying to make it sound like a victory over those fighters is more question of win rather than if I heard someone described his last bit of territory as maybe.
'I won't back down': Trump commits to Syria withdrawal in call with Erdogan
"In December. Donald Trump surprised many, including it appears his own security and military advisers by saying he was pulling the US out of northeastern Syria, he said ISIS had been defeated and therefore the two thousand US soldiers stationed there would be returning home this caused a great deal of tension around the month bridge area, currently under the control of US, but Kurdish troops whom Turkey views terrorists talking non wants to take control of the area. President Recep tie other untold Trump in a phone call. Well, I login, yuck. Lee is a journalist based in estan Bush's on the line with me. Now Isla thanks for joining us. So the statement by Edwin follows two violent incidents in which US service people were killed tell us a little about that. That's certainly those episodes that you mentioned those that certainly has probably adding to US concerns about how long and in what shape this withdraw will take. We'll we'll take in northern Syria. President one blamed. The attacks on the Islamic state saying it's an attempt to influence the US. I would imagine he suggesting that I says what doesn't want the US to leave are one says that they are in a position to pick up the fight against Islamic state and finish it off. But the priority for Turkey isn't has never been as Llamas state, but the whi PG the Kurdish militia that spot alongside the United States against Islam state. So how far is unable to deal with the US in good faith. I mean, given the chumps advises seem to be rolling back the time line for troop withdrawal, and there appears to be little consensus between the president and his team. I mean who can do and believe in who is he dealing with? President devan appears to be banking on his personal relationship with Trump. The two men have spoken at least four times by my count in the past month, or so the Turkish president views the rust of Trump's administration with wariness he's concerned that they are not nearly as committed as Trump is to pulling out of Syria, and they want to impose certain conditions, don't they? That's right. I mean, there's key figures within the Trump administration, including the secretary of state and others have said that any withdrawal should be contingent on the protection of the white PG this Kurdish militia with whom US soldiers who fought alongside against Zomig. St. however, that is the the main issue here because for Turkey going into Syria as much as our says he's committed to cleaning up the remnants of Zomig state. The real focus for Turkey is the Kurdish militia there. They see a Kurdish entity on their turkeys occurred entity in southern border as a grave national security risk worry that it could stoke separatism among its own far larger Kurdish population is there room that for joint tuck as US operation. I think that that's something that Turkey has long pushed for especially for this town of members of flash point in northeastern Syria. It's where US special forces are still present where they faced attacks in recent in recent days, and which is under the control also of the white PG or the STF, which is a nother acronym in which the Kurdish militia makes up the bulk of the
