Fresh update on "tokyo" discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"But. That's my. My. Taking it as like small talk just starting. Trying to it is that where have I found? You are you on the planet right now I'm at home in Edwards Colorado right now. Three days away from shipping off to Europe or what we hope to start of the ski season the race season right and I guess in that's that's one of the major reasons why you're on today about keep the flame. Dot Org and what is going on in the world with Covid nineteen you know we're all focused clearly about the Tokyo games and how it's affected but the Beijing Games in two, thousand, twenty two, this is pretty significant as well, and obviously this involves your late father as well. I WANNA give you the floor here on what you'd like everyone to know about. You don't mind. Yeah. Well, you know during this time like you like you mentioned obviously, Tokyo has been majorly affected by the pandemic, but it it snow snowballs no pun intended into the fall the upcoming Olympics in it I think it might go you know beyond Beijing even but for the winter athletes who are also prepare trying to prepare for. The upcoming race season this season competing but then also. Next season, which is the Olympic season. It's these these two years are. Important. For training and getting prepared and having our athletes be the best prepared. We can be going into the Olympics and with the pandemic it's no sports. was hit incredibly hard like I think pretty much across the board all industries were hit but definitely having to close down pretty much everything and Snow sports several months earlier than expected and You know having to shutdown US ski and snowboard just had to shut down everything like everyone else and it it took a huge hit and then you know kind of waking up in the face of. A pandemic and trying to how do we manage running everything again, and you know you have a lot of extra costs a lot of extra travel travel with including quarantine, which adds fourteen days to travel and meals and lodging athletes that US ski and snowboard would have. been covering you have testing cost just just doing covert testing was going to add I. Think the number I saw was in an extra million or more to the budget. So what back in the spring? It was a little bit in conjunction after my dad. Passed away a lot of people were contacting my family and asking where they could donate and. We didn't really have an answer in the immediate weeks following his his. Passing and and the celebration of life. But we sort of started talking with some really big supporters on the US ski and snowboard and some some people who have donated in the past and came up with this idea of starting a resiliency fund that would bridge the gap that we've lost in in other fundraising events that extra costs that athletes are facing person and the. US Ski and Snowboard is facing in order to help all of the athletes across the board train and You know use this fun to bridge the gap in costs and try to get us. All to keep training competing heading into the Olympics and be fully prepared as we otherwise would have, and then the it's also, it's kind of a twofold goal. There's another side of it, which is hugely important in part part of why we named it in honor of my dad was the message of resiliency and especially right now i. think it's a really important message to spreading that We all all of us everybody no matter what you do no matter what your job is no matter. Your political backgrounds everybody needs to come together and and you unite really and unite behind this message of resiliency of that you can still be strong in the face of. Base of heartache and pain and just terrible things that are going on in everybody's life right now, that are going to leave scars for a long time to come. But you know if I give you some strength, maybe you can come give me some of your strengths and together we can. Get through it, and that's that's where keep the flame alive came from you. There's more details that keep the flame alive dot org like you had mentioned but that's where that whole message came from and I think. The fundraising is hugely important for athletes on the skin snowboard but message of spreading resiliency that's for me. A lot of ways. It's equally as important. It's a mental battle. It has been for me this entire summer and There's been we we've done some interviews with I. I have an interview on the website a couple other. Several US ski and snowboard athletes have some really great interviews and a lot of great insight to share about resiliency upset and We're planning to just continue sharing stories and continue sharing that message because whether you're able to donate or not I think everybody can can use a little something that will uplift them especially right now keep the flame alive dot Org Michaela's Schifrin here on the rich Eisen Show I lost my dad and December. Known, on I'm sorry for your loss my dad was eighty two and you know it was it was still sudden. Your Dad was younger. Obviously it was. It was still sudden but just hearing you say you know I can give you strength. You can give me strength out was my strength in the aftermath it really does mean a lot. You know it.

End of Abe era leaves Japan still searching for way forward
"Your Shahida Suda as the country's new prime minister on Monday. 71 year old Mr Suder was overwhelmingly elected as the leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, replacing Shinzo Abe has dominated Japanese politics for the past eight years. Mr was expected to serve until the end of next year, but announced suddenly he was stepping down last month, pleading poor health. There's now concerned that Japan could be about to return to what became known as revolving door politics when the country changed Prime Minister's almost every year, Rupert Wingfield Hayes reports. Yeah. You see that pit shuttle get this's something No one would have predicted even a few weeks ago. 71 year old Yoshida super being proclaimed leader of Japan's all powerful Liberal Democratic Party. And by default, the country's new prime minister. Mr Sugar is not known for his charisma or his oratory. And as he made his rather ponderous victory speech, you can hear why you know anybody. Ronnie. Still cocaine. I want to break down bureaucratic divisions invested interests, he says on the blind adherence to president indication to form a cabinet that will work hard for the people. That takes a kike Agos, Cary Most Japanese, No, Mr Sugar as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's long serving grim faced spokesman Up till now. He has always been a backroom guy. A fixer. He has none of the charm or diplomatic skills. Mr Abba used TTO win over President Donald Trump. But according to those who know him like economists and long term Tokyo resident Yes, Bacall, Mr Sugar brings other attributes to the game. Here is a man who gets up at five o'clock in the morning. Does 100 sit ups and then reads all the newspapers and by 6 30. He's starting meetings right with business people with advisers, you know, with outside economists, he absorbs like a sponge and wants to get things done for the country. He's not interested in any of the glitz or blink that comes with war nongovernment. The problem for Mr Suder. Is he has no mandate from the Japanese people. His elevation to the top job was a stitch up by L. V P. Party bosses in smoke filled back rooms. Perhaps because of that much is being made of Mr Segers Humble background. The son of a strawberry farmer, he worked in a cardboard factory to pay his way through college. He's certainly very different from most of Japan's recent prime ministers like Mr Abbott, the silent of a powerful political dynasty, but in the scheming world of Japanese politics Rashid, a circus. Humble origins could also be his undoing. According to Professor Koichi Nakano of Tokyo's Sophia University. Mr Silva comes from a humble background. He really doesn't have his own power base.

So when he gets back from the palace, he will hold a press conference as the new prime minister, and he will announce his new Cabinet that hasn't formally being done yet. But there's been loads of speculation in the media already about It's makeup. Mr Seeger claims that he is goingto have a cabinet that will really work for the Japanese people. But what we've seen already, if this cabinet turns out to be true that it is a careful balance.

Before Resigning, Prime Minister Makes A Final Push To Strengthen Japan's Military
"Abe, Japan's longest serving prime minister, is stepping down this week after eight years in office. With his career ending he has made a final push to strengthen Japan's military. As NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul. That push could affect the balance of power in Asia. At a press briefing last month to announce his resignation, Arbet said the country faces and increasingly harsh security environment for North Korea has greatly improved its ballistic missile capabilities. He said he questioned if it's enough just to be able to intercept those missiles. And later suggested Japan also needs a missile arsenal as a deterrent. That could alter the security landscape in Asia. Sheila Smith, the Japan expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, points out that at the moment, Japan is the only country in Northeast Asia that does not maintain ballistic missiles. One of Bob's career long goals has been to throw off post World War two restrictions on Japan's military. He failed to revise Japan's constitution in which Japan gives up the right to wage war. But in 2015, he did push through legislation allowing Japan to deploy troops overseas in support of allies. At the time. He explained it like this. I know From tomorrow, no more. Let us no longer turn a blind eye to the changes in the environment and remain idle said he urged Japanese to be more confident. They also oversaw the making of Japan's first aircraft carriers since World War two President Trump boarded one of them on a visit to Japan last year and praised his host. I want to thank my friend. And your prime minister. Is an extraordinary man. His commitment to improving Japan's defense capabilities. Which also advances the security of the United States of America. President Trump is questioned the need to protect wealthy allies like Japan, who he says don't pay their fair share of defense costs. Matsuhisa Sato, a lawmaker with the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, says that even before Trump, Japan knew that the U. S was weary from decades of foreign wars, almost taken taking a soldier's gotta move. No Sekai. No case took President Obama said that the U. S is going to stop being, the world's policeman says, and the lawmaker added the trend of countries taking more responsibility for their own defence will continue. Regardless of who the new U. S president is Washington in Tokyo insist their alliance remains ironclad. But doubts about America's commitment are driving the Japanese debate about missile defense. Sheila Smith of the Council on Foreign Relations, says this represents a shift in Japanese people's thinking they've grown up with the U. S. Japan Alliance says the you know like the framework within which Japan thinks about its security. They don't have A conversation. I've never really had a thought process in their public policy debate that says So, what do we do if the alliance doesn't work? Former defense official Kyoji Ah Nagasawa argues that Japan now faces twin risks in its alliance with the US home Tonight. One risk, he says, is that the U. S. Might abandon Japan thie. Other growing risk, he says, is that the U. S. May drag Japan into an unnecessary conflict, for example, with China He says Japan should focus on diplomatic solutions such as mediating between Washington and Beijing, rather than seeking new weapons. The outcome of Japan's internal debate on missile defense will become clear by year's end. When Shinzo Abe successor and his government roll out a new policy. Anthony Kun, NPR news soul

Japan set for new prime minister after ruling party vote
"By the end of today, could Japan have a new prime minister? The departure of Shinzo Abe's due to ill health triggered a rapid and intense race within the country's ruling Liberal. Democratic Party today's voters among three contenders with a front runner Mr Abbas advisor Your Shahida suge he promises to maintain JAPA- Japan's current economic policies what I'm delighted to say our Tokyo Bureau chief know. Wilson. Joins me now good afternoon. Aloe Vera. What is the latest? Well the election is happening as we speak the members of the L. D. The parliamentary members are in a hotel in Tokyo casting their votes. I don't think it's going to take that long actually, and I expect the results to come out quite soon and you're right Mr Sugar is. Massively the favourite he's already secured seventy percent of the vote within the party the parliamentary multi, the votes he'll probably get most of those as well. So it really is sort of a formality, this election and what will happen next is on Wednesday the Diet will come into session and he will be. Made Prime Minister officially. What is it about your Shahida suge which seems to have guaranteed to convincing win for him. Well I think number one is he's ver- famously very loyal to Shinzo, Arbor, and his his platform is basically all just do more of the same. So he's not putting up any kind of different policies. It's really hard to cigarette paper between these two he's he's openly said he will continue the economic policy, the diplomatic policy, and that seems to be quite welcome within the party within the parliamentary party. Certainly. Now. The other two candidates. Very strong candidates, Mr Kishida, and and also Mr issued burner issues. We've talked about him quite often he's been. A strong critic of Shinto Arbor but those they can't win today almost impossible I. You know less this summer unbelievable event. But they're looking to next year I mean even though Mr Suge will win today, he can really only see out Shinzo Abe's term which would have finished next September, this term as president of the Party and the the term finish is September twenty twenty one when they will have to be another election. So the big discussion now is does Mr Suge immediately have a general election to. Cement his position. So I think that will be the big discussion next week. What is the popularity of him among Japanese citizens I e descriptions of him in the press did not paint him as a particularly pleasant. A warm character that many people would be inspired by in fact, the absolute opposite but it's only in the last couple of weeks at a twinkle in his eye appeared. Carefully contrived twinkle in his eye I mean he's been in front of the press twice a day every day for nearly eight years because he's been the spokesperson for Shinzo, Abe's government. So the press knows him very very well, I think his public persona is is not so clear people now know he's the son of a strawberry farm he's not from one of. These famous political families like Shinzo Bay Familia, Kishida, one of his rivals he's he's worked his way up, which is being a little bit of involuntary cheese talked about I'm a regular person. If I can become prime minister anyone can and they've tried to craft a bit of a warm personality saying he's got a sweet tooth. We've had a few friends wheeled out. From his his hometown, he comes from Accu in the north of Japan from a Small Town Newshour but I have to say the people they've they've brought out have rather confirmed that he was a pretty quiet nondescript character as a youth. You didn't really do much more than than than fish for trout and played baseball. He wasn't really marked out for political success. Oh I wouldn't say he's he's extremely charismatic and he himself admits he doesn't have much diplomatic experience. So that will be interesting because obviously one of the big relationships that Japan has its regional neighbors and with the US and I, I'm trying to imagine Yoshida and Donald Trump. That could be an interesting meeting. I think Mr Saga the the Polish that some of his. Colleagues, have and I I. HE admits that will be a new experience for him. I mean he indeed, I mean he's already said that if he does indeed secure the job, he will need the help of Shinzo rb when dealing with foreign policy as you say, it's going to be a different kind of. For in front facing world that the Japan will be pro presenting to following the departure Shinzo. but how much is there a real feeling that will be in the background despite his departure? I. Don't think he'll be in the background in any sensitive as a puppeteer, but I think the aims of his government will be pursued in one thing that's very interesting about sugar is he's not really an ideologue Shinzo had some quite. He had ideological positions are very well known. You know these nationalist positions very concerned to to reformulate the constitution Japan's pacifist constitution. He wanted to change that. Now really saga is not one go on about nationalism in any shape or form he's very pragmatic and everyone says the same thing he doesn't have a lot of charm sorry to say but that that's the the verdict on. Him when he goes into her and he's not dominating the room radiating charisma he looks at the small print and he's he's not really one for schmoozing but he wants to get things done and that's where he will differ from Shinzo obey. But I don't think he'll be grandstanding on the diplomatic

How The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Affected Energy Industry In Japan
"On your it's not easy to get rid of nuclear power. Okawa is right. Taking apart. A nuclear power plant is not easy day CI has been in the Decommissioning process essentially since the disaster. And that means every day over 4000 workers stream into the plant, clocking in To tackle a vast array of problems. The radiation levels here are much lower than they were nine years ago. In most areas of the plant, you could walk around without special protective gear down by the reactor's, though the ones that exploded levels are still high, and visiting time to them is limited. Kozo Takahashi are TEPCO guide takes us down to see them, bringing into stark reality the challenges that TEPCO has faced here since the disaster. Crews of workers are bustling around in full protective suits. Takahashi points out each reactor, each with its own set of problems. He says a new robot had to be invented to get to melted fuel in one another had to be essentially rebuilt just to take it apart again. And then there's the problem of waste your time here at GH Eve, huge amounts of water pumped into the damaged reactors every day to keep them cool. In the end result is more than one million tons of that water piled up in storage tanks contaminated with radioactive trillium. Storage space is running out, and the Japanese government is considering dumping it all into the ocean, much to the dismay of local communities worried about environmental impact. This is all just a taste of what it means to decommission Daiichi, which will take an estimated 40 years and nearly $200 billion to produce no electricity. At all. The rest of Japan's nuclear power program isn't faring a whole lot better by 2011 nuclear power produced nearly a third of the nation's energy. But after the disaster, the Japanese government imposed new safety regulations that took every nuclear reactor off line. All 54 of them, and the Japanese public largely wants to keep it that way. Anti nuclear power sentiments friend rapidly after Fukushima. It was a very Great sense of betrayal. Alexander Brown is an Australian researcher in Japan. He studied the anti nuclear power protests that took off in 2011. He says that betrayal came largely from the fact that Japanese people had been assured that nuclear power was safe that no accident would ever happen. So it was much more than just about Ray, you have to pull out all the specifics of the accident itself. Huge protest broke out in Tokyo, tens of thousands of people marching through city streets and bright costumes, banging drums and Cymbals. And, of course, chanting the main slogans. Just give that one time we opposed nuclear power. The's big protests continued for months and spread to other cities. And even now, there's still protests everywhere. They're smaller, Brown says. And maybe not quite so eye catching, but it's sister and it's not going away. Which has left Japan in a kind of energy conundrum. With all those reactors offline, a lot more coal and natural gas had to be imported energy prices have gone up. As have greenhouse gas emissions. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his party have been pushing hard to restart the nuclear power program promising safety But needing to bring down costs and tackle climate change. The government on YouTube keeps saying you could apply the cheapest parcels. People don't trust it anymore. Tatsuo Suzuki is a former nuclear engineer and now professor at Nagasaki University. He says that the disaster and Fukushima made people completely rethink the cost of nuclear power. In broader terms, the social costs ofthe separation in the family. Losing the land losing their jobs. How can you measure all these impacts estimating the risk of nuclear power, But Suzuki says the choice is still a difficult one. When you factor in climate change and needing to reduce the use of fossil fuels, he equates nuclear power with a strong medicine that also has a potentially strong side effect. So which you will choose You may have to choose the nuclear power eventually means Clement chain is absolutely event for the world so the world may have to take medicine on nuclear power. But we have to very, very careful. And you have other choices. I would recommend the nuclear policy last Japan doesn't have a lot of other choices. Slowly, A handful of nuclear reactors in the country have restarted passing new safety regulations. Many more are held up in court battles as local governments refused to take the risk, and even more are slated to be decommissioned as utilities give up on them altogether. Back in Fukushima near Daiichi nuclear worker Kazu Okawa stops the car. And gets out to look at a site. He never thought he'd see tons of radioactive topsoil scraped from the Earth during the cleanup efforts being piled high next to the road. This is in Futaba, his old hometown, where much of the land has been slated as a storage site for this contaminated soil. Okawa says he'll never come back even if evacuation orders for the town are eventually lifted. Another guy who wants to live next to this. This nuclear waste. He shakes his head, almost in disbelief that I thought nuclear power was safe. Isn't thought it was 100% safe. But now, like a lot of Japan, he doesn't want anything to do with it. I'm afraid of nuclear power. In one moment it devastated our home is your home and now, Ochoa says he's 100% against it. Cat Langsdorf NPR NEWS Fukushima, Japan
After 2011 Disaster, Fukushima Embraced Solar Power. The Rest Of Japan Has Not
"Before the earthquake before the NAMI and the nuclear disaster Japan got nearly a third of its energy from nuclear power. But after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in two thousand eleven, the country took all of its nuclear reactors off line, which has led Japan to increasingly rely on fossil fuels and also solar power. NPR's cat ORF continues our series on recovery and Fukushima. She only endo is saying a final goodbye.

Nonsense because it's relatively useless the wind carried radioactive material here after the disaster and the government has scraped off all the topsoil in decontamination efforts. The farmers here can't really far much anymore. So small local power company came and asked sugar. Yuki if they could rent land for solar panels, he said, yes could you go I was really worried after the nuclear accident how would we get power most of his neighbors also agreed but that means everything is different.

Japan's Prime Minister resigns for health reasons
"It is a week or so since Japan's longest-serving, Prime Minister Shinzo are announced that he would be standing down for health reasons that discreet interval having elapsed those who fancy succeeding him as leader of the Liberal Democratic Party and therefore Prime Minister of beginning to make themselves known among the first out of the traps is Yoshi suger currently chief cabinet secretary already seen as the favorite the former foreign, Minister Fumio Kishida and former. Defense. Minister Shapiro she but also like their chances, the decision is due on. September. Fourteenth joining me with more is molecules Tokyo bureau chief. Your New Wilson. Fiona is this the one horse race that some are already calling it? Yes, I'm afraid I think it is amazing. Things have happening over the last couple of days in Japan you're right there are three key people standing but really the LDP party, the party executives have swung into action and pretty much. So not the race for Soga to win it's going to be very difficult for him to lose the L. TPS. Famously, it's got these factions seven factions and it seems that saga although he only just a matter of hours go announced. His candidacy seems he's already secured. Five of the seven factions. Votes can be quite hard to beat him and yesterday that was an amazing meeting of the Executive Council of the Party and they decided not to bother with the votes from the rank and file, which really sent a clear signal because among the rank and file issue the former defense minister, he's the top choice. He's also the top choice with the public. He pulls much higher than Sukkur and clearly the party Did Not want him to win. So the in a way it's been rigged actually the vote and it's very good news for Soga and not for anyone else standing on that point though if Ishiba is the more popular candidate among the actual Japanese Public Roy is he not seen as more of a contender by the Party grandees? It's interesting. He's been relentless critic of Shinzo Bay and that's one him. No friends he he just does not have enough support within the party and it's a sort of a grudge I suppose you could say he stood against. A couple of times in two, thousand and twelve he stood against obey. He actually won the first round when it was, you know down to the rank and file he won. He lost in the second round when it came down to the the members of the politicians. So he's he's seen as trouble he's criticized throughout he you know I in a natural way he's got plenty to say about what's going on within his own party. He's he's being critical of our based diplomacy. He thinks it's to US centric he he feels that the stimulus packages that she has set the ABA. Policies that he's feels not sustainable in the long term and he's voiced very openly. So he's one no friends within the policy leaders and I think now it's unfortunately for him. It's coming home to roost. So if we are going to have to get used to the idea of your Shahida, suge as the next prime minister of Japan, do we understand yet what sort of prime minister he intends to be? Basically, who is he? Yeah, it's an interesting one I mean. People outside Japan wet name much about him although he's been obeys right hand man throughout since two thousand twelve he's he's the public face of the government. He's the top spokesperson. He's there every day at the press conferences batting off critism of Shinto. Ebbe. There are questions about unfortunate scandals, how how Abbas dealing with the pandemic. It's been super who's dealt with all that. So he is a very, very well known face here. He's. He's sometimes referred to his uncle ray were not not particularly affectionately, but he was the man who revealed the name of the new Japanese era when there's new. The new era begins and we are now in the era of war and he was the man who revealed that on television. So he's sort of got this nickname, but there's not a lot. He's revealed about himself personally in seventy one. Well, when when he came on today his press conference, he pretty much announced exactly what kind of prime minster he'll be, which is continuity Abba he said he'll be dealing with coronavirus. He'll continue with up a NOMEX and he'll continue Abbas diplomatic policy which is based on the US Japan. Alliance and I think that's where he differed from issue who was trying to do the exact opposite really saying. Issue has been saying we need more friends in south. East Asia not so US centric, he doesn't fancy what they call the golf diplomacy the great bromance between trump and pay, which is much spoken of. Not. Sure. How much trump considered it although he did he did tweets that he considered to be Japan's greatest prime minister which prompted much hilarity on twitter to see if anyone could ask trump who was his second greatest pick suspecting that he probably couldn't name and other Japanese prime minister so that that really he's continuity and for some people about important but it seems the public were they wanted a bit of change maybe not a complete revolution. They've maybe would have liked to fresh face, but it looks like it's going to be so good and it's a very short election campaign really starts in the seventh ends on the fourteenth with the Prime Minister being appointed on the sixteenth seventeenth in a special session just finally, and briefly owner is it politically viable for the Liberal Democratic Party just to install him as prime minister and let him crack on there won't be any talk of early general election or anything. There isn't at the moment, but there has to be a general election by next Autumn Anyway twenty, twenty one. This is so. It would be pretty remarkable if he were to come in and immediately call a general election. So I think not. But there are some very dissenting voices I notice the Asahi Shimbun, huge center-left newspaper second-biggest paper. In Japan, remember the circulations are enormous and described this whole process of how suit of being shoehorned into the role as bleak and pathetic. So it's not like There is across the board support for is going to have a bit of a battle with the public. He hasn't actually put a foot wrong so far he said very little. He only announced his candidacy tonight so. We'll see how it turns out but at the moment, it looks like it's going to be business as usual. If, you're on a Wilson in Tokyo Bureau.

"So not long ago. The Tokyo marathon was held. It went forward but it was held to just a few hundred elite runners. Tens of thousands who had registered were told to stay home and there were no spectators so it was held on mostly empty streets which was an eerie sight here in Japan. This is now what sports looks like an age of Corona virus. Typically it'll be tens of thousands of fans lining the streets to cheer on the runners right. How in comparison? Nobody is here and got me wondering. Do you think it's possible? The Olympics might proceed but there might not be fans or spectators allowed to watch. That's definitely an option and it's been we've seen it in some soccer games especially in Italy. I think before the bigger outbreak in Italy. We saw those kind of closed door events but yeah milly more than a million spectators usually go to the Tokyo marathon. It's one of the biggest ones in the world and they weren't there there. Were just two hundred runners on these quiet streets in the photos. Yeah they're very eerie. And I think it's certainly a possibility but I don't know the Olympics. This unifying thing in the world that lack of not having that I think is something that is weighing on the minds and it's not the best thing to think about Kelly along those lines. There's billions of dollars wrapped up in the Olympics. What would the financial impact be both Japan and the I o see if this was canceled or postponed so the official budget for the Olympics? This year was between I think it was upwards of twelve billion dollars but we've also seen estimates put north of twenty five billion but one expert. I talked to actually had something. Pretty interesting to say he said basically now all the construction spending is done and they expected the tourism revenue to be pretty big but tourism. Revenue is just one percent of Japan's GDP. So they weren't necessarily looking toward that even as such a big deal but you know. There's the television deals. There's the marketing campaigns. There are billions of dollars still at stake. You know obviously money is never more important than a life but that is something that's really also has to weigh on the minds right and then you also think of the money spent by the athletes and the teams in the countries and how much time and effort that they've been planning for the Olympics for years. Your story. This week is about the Olympics. But it's not the only major sporting event potentially affected by the Krona virus. We talked about the Tokyo Marathon. What other events and Games are being impacted by this around the world so sports are actually feeling the impact around the globe. It's not just Japan. The world indoor track and field championships later this month in March in China have been postponed. Soccer Games in Italy in China have been cancelled. Postponed played behind closed. Doors the Formula One actually. The Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai scheduled for April has been postponed the LPGA had events in China Thailand and Singapore. Those have all been cancelled. So it's it's definitely impacting sports everywhere. Well what about in the US? I mean we're starting to see more cases here in multiple states. Do you think it's possible that major sporting events could also be cancelled in terms of here. I think it's been a little bit slower here but it could easily pick up in America like it has an Italy officials. Here are warning that really could happen. I think precautionary measures right now. Or just what we're hearing about you know here in the NBA. We had some reporting on. Espn about not shaking hands limiting signatures. Just doing fist bumps major league baseball just announced that they're not planning to cancel or postpone spring training or regular season games due to the corona virus but they do have an internal task force to deal with any no possible things that might arise from krona virus in the coming months. I know the NHL is doing some preparations. But I think right now. They're kind of keeping the surface level in about two weeks. March madness starts and so that means sixty teams in all of their fans all packing into basketball arenas watching these games and the National College Players Association actually suggesting that the NC double a. and the colleges that are going to be part of March madness seriously. Consider playing those games without the fans. Thanks so much Kelly. Thank.
