"Are experiencing localized outbreaks and a research in the cases is consequence of a change in human behavior, we're receiving reports from several health for a of a high proportion of new infections among young people. So for me, the call is loud enough to rethink how to better develop. So it's best to involve younger people. So that's it makes more sense because I'd imagine right just people being so bored at home and having nothing to do especially the young people that are suffering most right because. We probably, we probably never had any depends maybe from Spain or your from Illyria from. Maybe those kind of countries you might have suffered some kind of economic downturn during your lifetime right? The economy crashed. There was a scandal in parliament affected finances and Josiah potts factor and stuff. But for the most part of the UK, we haven't really had to suffer from this. Right maybe it's localized to few in New York during the the. during nine eleven, you probably suffered something in the wake of this being locked in your home with no kind of.

And also reports of post lockdown streetwise raise blood I. Didn't I didn't even think about you know. Imagine if going to win the holiday activity going away lot whole streets, whole communities, whole household, hope friendship groups, and come back to their communities. People are going to be shaking boosts. God Almighty.

So badly in west with covert in it if you look at places like sappy specially in Vietnam, there was that kind of sense of civic responsibility Evans sort of gathered around knuckle dean. Know, and so of like decided hey, for the greater good because we wanted to get back to some level of no Mattie less kind of abide by the rules maybe of imagine maybe they've got government or society in place that makes them a little bit more.

But we had a bev a spurt with the black lives matter kind of protest a few weeks of couple of months ago June we've missed a couple icicle maybe a month ago time has gone by so quickly but. That's the issue having in it. Lousy young people going out not really caring. Catching catching the virus and then coming back and especially passing to people who are. On the wrong end of getting ready in that respect. But Jesus God Almighty. Mardi. Maximalist.

"Hello, this is the globalist broadcasting to you live from Dory House in London I'm Georgina Godwin on the show ahead, we'll get reaction from Hong Kong as the legislative. Council elections suspended for a year pro democracy candidates banned from standing and protest leaders put on a wanted list well, as the Democratic space in Hong Kong contracts is Taiwan at risk. We'll hear about worringly aggressive news from China. And Look at how foreign pause might react. Then Zimbabwe continues to implode many high profile peaceful anti-corruption demonstrators were arrested on Friday. We'll cross the Harari to hear from an opposition spokesperson he's just been released how to that will definitely be time for some good news for some weeks Zehlendorf had been mystified by the disappearance of slippers, trainers and sandals left outside until the diligent citizen filmed. Fox. A pair of Blue flip-flops further investigation yielded a horde that would have impressed Imelda Marcos and look at a retail round up as well as look through the papers. That's all ahead here on the globalist live from. London. I a look at what else is happening in the news in Australia, the state of Victoria has imposed a nightly curfew in a bid to curb a resurgence in coronavirus cases, the American companies space x has become the first private company to successfully complete a mission to space and a new bridge built to replace the Ponti Morandi that collapsed a little under two years ago will be inaugurated today in. Italy. Tuesday tuned to monocle twenty four. Throughout the day for more on those stories, now we'll begin the show in Hong Kong where the imposition of Jacobean new security rule by Beijing, last month has been followed by the announcement that Legislative Council elections will be delayed by a year twelve pro democracy candidates have been banned from standing at least four students have been arrested for social media posts and many more including some living in exile have been placed on a police wanted list. La Bureau chief in the territory. James Chambers joins me now to discuss the latest developments James thanks for for joining us here. I'll have people reacted to the postponement LegCo election. It's at that long list. We are also in the middle of a pandemic and a tropical depression is swept through Hong Kong. So it's all very gloomy right now. Well. Yes. It's been a it came as a as a shock on Friday when Carrie Lam announced that the. Election will be postponed for a year even though. We some of US had been expected it and it had been talked about and there were there's no There's no. Constitutional means for for this delay So everyone's scratching their heads to to wonder what's going to happen now. You. Know. Carrie Lam and her government a doing this officially for public health reasons. Hong, Kong is still reporting over one hundred covid, nineteen cases a day and so the idea behind this delay is to protect public health and she does the chief executive has come out over the weekend to say that she thinks public opinion is on her side There are polls suggest otherwise but you know her. Reasons for doing. It are supposedly for because of the pandemic but obviously, a lot of the the opposition other the Democrats and a lot of Hong. Kong think they're more political motivations behind it. So what happens in the interim who runs the Legislative Council. Well under the Basic Law, which is Hong Kong's mini constitution each. Legislative Council or alleged code term is only allowed to last for four years. There are no provisions in the constitution for its last any longer than that. In fact, the the chief executive that government is only allowed to delay elections for fourteen days for reasons of public health emergencies or you know. Typhoons or things like that. So. You know this is unheard of on it's not Reno provided for in the constitution So nobody knows what's going to happen now for this year is interim year. and. The chief executive has now written to Beijing to the State Council essentially, the Chinese government to ask them what can be done. So she's basically going to get Beijing to give a directive and Prescribe what is going to happen over the next twelve months there are various things that could happen. One of those obvious ones is to extend the current go for another twelve months. And that would require you know some Beijing to come up with a with a new law or interpretation. But that raises another. Thorny issue because as you mentioned earlier of those twelve Pan Democrats lawmakers who were banned from standing for election in the election happened in September four of them are incumbent lawmakers. So they've been disqualified from running again but the big question is now if Does extend the life of the current Ledge go for another twelve months. Do those four disqualified lawmakers get to keep their seats essentially If you know I carry lamb herself has said her personal view is that the the incumbents should all continue but you it's very likely that they that Beijing would see it differently and you might see those those four excluded from this extended logical and that would mean the the pro establishment lawmakers have an even bigger. Majority in LegCo and you know whatever happens I can see this next twelve months being used as a time to push through various laws to change certain rules and proceedings about Legco so that we Don't see the types of. Kind of opposition and Pro Democrat disruption. In the future I mean there's talk I understand about expanding voting to Hong Kong residents who live just across the border in in Guangdong. Yes. This is seems like a bit of a mad idea. Because it's something that's that's coming from a lot of You know big figures in the government and establishment side of things. So the idea would be There's a lot of Hong Kong residents. Hongkongers citizens who live in Guangdong, which is the the neighboring province which used to be called Canton a lot of family ties between Hong Kong and that region and at the moment You have to be in Hong Kong to vote but the idea being pushed by various kind of people in the pro-government side is to have voting booths in. Guangdong. So Hong Kong permanent residents able to vote in the election, which would in a way in a funny way kind of export democracy to China you might have a lot of kind of mainland Chinese people walking around. Guangdong cities like Shenzhen and Guangzhou going over what the Hell's going on here how come these guys get votes but obviously, there's a strategy here the assumption by the government and the pro government supporters of this idea would be that people living on the mainland people living in Guangdong more likely to vote for pro establishment candidates and the idea would be to kind of boost support for the government among the voter base Hong Kong, and balance out all of these new young voters, these eighteen nineteen and twenty year olds voting for the first time who obviously a more likely to vote for the opposition. Now, as you say, of course, covert is still a big big concern in Hong Kong. and. There have been some health pex experts from China from mainland. China arriving there too must testing that hasn't gone down awfully well. No, it seems to be since the. The National Security Law came in we're getting used to A..
Fresh update on "zimbabwe" discussed on The Economist: Editor's Picks
"Had hoped would lift their families out of poverty and put their children through school some of ended up begging, and since that is a crime in the UAE several have been arrested migration policy is far from the talk of any countries agenda just now and with the corona virus still raging return to normality will be impossible for some time, but governments will sooner or later have to. Grapple with an important question as they gradually and fitfully opened up again for tourists and business travellers will also welcome. Migrants are a motive reasons why Kobe nineteen might make countries less willing to accept foreign his even after a vaccine is discovered and the pandemic is suppressed, people are scared not only this pandemic. But also of the next many associate foreigners were disease dramatic news stories such as a boat full of Cohen infected migrants crossing the Mediterranean can feed this impression. Suspicion of foreigners is why people who look Chinese have been harassed in many countries and people who look African have been harassed in China it is why President Donald Trump has boasted about banning Chinese travelers even as he downplayed mosques and why one of the South African governments first actions to curb covid nineteen was to build a fence on the border with Zimbabwe though the virus was already spreading in South Africa In addition. Nineteen has caused mass unemployment. Many voters believed that migrants take jobs from the Matrix. and. So would keep curbs on immigration even after other travel restrictions loosened Mr trump is one of many politicians who make this argument explicitly, his executive order in. June suspending most kinds of work visa was aimed at aliens who present a risk to the US labor market. Both, these fears are electorally potent but neither is well-founded tourists and business travellers vastly outnumber migrants in. Britain, for example, the total number of arrivals last year was sixty times more than the number of immigrants who showed up. When it is possible to open borders to short term travelers it should also be possible to open them for migrants unlike terrorists people who plan to stay for years will not object to a two week quarantine on arrival. The precautions that work best social distancing contact, tracing handwashing and testing pay no heed to nationality nor does the virus. The idea that more migrants means jobs for locals in the long run is an example of the fallacy that the economy has a fixed lump of labour as well as spending their wages, which supports new jobs. Migrants bring a greater diversity of skills to the workforce allowing labor market as a whole to operate more efficiently. In the short term, rich countries may not need as many hotel or airline workers but make. US Can Taylor admission criteria to make sure that those who come meet local needs and consider themselves. This is the opposite of Mr. Trump's nail the door shot approach. He has locked out skilled workers, internal company transfers, and even foreign students. If they have not yet arrived and their courses online, this is a recipe for poor more insular America where domestic firms cannot hire the best foreign investors cannot send in technicians to. Bottlenecks and brainy youngsters opt to study and settle in Canada. Alas America is not the only place where the pandemic spurred nativist to clamp down. Italy is alarmed at Africans crossing the Mediterranean Malaysia has pushed boatloads of Rohingya refugees back into international waters. The army chief in the Maldives has called migrant workers, a security threat, not least because some date locals, South Africa temporarily close migrant own shops in townships,.
Phil - Growing up gay in South Africa
"It can tell from Phil now. He grew up in South Africa where he knew from a very early age that he was gay, and he got bullied for it from the age of eight I think I always knew from a young age, but for me it was different levels of awareness so when I was really young I found myself getting those butterflies in that shy feeling by looking at old is so you know when you see little schoolgirls and they all shy when they see their friends older brothers Zoll. Things like that! That's how I felt and it felt. Different to looking at my other male straight friends, who would get the same feelings for girls? So I had the awareness that they was a difference there I was getting that feeling by looking at guys, but they were getting that feeling looking at girls, and what's certain Cevennes near young mind that there was anything wrong with that, or did you just sort of acknowledging and and run with it I think as I got older Changed the way I. I thought because the majority of the people I was hanging around with were attracted to the opposite sex so I then thought okay. There must be something wrong with me because I didn't know anybody else. Who has in the same situation as me? Let's put this in a setting. Then how old were you? Where were you growing up? I think the awareness really started when I was four five and I grew up in South Africa. That's young, isn't it? Yeah, well I mean the thing is i. that's why I had different levels of awareness as about myself as I was growing up. So I mean yes, I had like kiss catch with girls, but then I had the feeling. Oh, I want to play catch with boys. You Know I. think that would be a little bit more exciting. And then I got a little bit older and. It was. Should I be having these feelings and I think you are actually the first person on the podcast from South Africa. Yes, so I don't really have much of a sense of what it's like growing up being gay part the Elliott Bay Community in South Africa what what was it like south? Africa I find is a little bit more. Conservative than here in the UK. And at that time it was quite homophobic. Very traditional men do this woman do this. That really affected me and I found it quite difficult. There were slows thrown about about being gay I can remember being a kid, and for those the listeners who have some experience in South Africa the word was more fee, which was fag basically and Offie Molefi. So. I was called that a lot I didn't even know what it meant. My mom tells me about the story. When I was young, I must've been eight or nine, and and I would go to my mom in our say mom, how do gay guys? And she said to me I know Philip. How do gay guys walk and I said I don't know, but the people at school are are teasing me because they say that I'm gay because I walk in a certain way and I didn't even have a label for it, but it was really really hard, even for my mom and Dad. They never really had any experience in lgbtq stuff and they've learned a lot through me. Yeah. It's a similar story with a lot of people are told to. Kind of like a lot of parents learn as they go on, which is why sometimes their first reaction isn't always the best one because they literally done what to say, they have gotten a reference point. They haven't met any other LGBT people until that child comes out. This is what it was like with my mom and dad because they grew up in Rhodesia and Zimbabwe. and. It was a lot more conservative than over in the UK, so they didn't have a reference. They didn't have any friends and relatives that were comfortable in coming out and saying who they really

Get that right. Awesome. You did very well Travis. I'm so happy to be on your show. Thank you so much. Thank you for joining me, and it might be the hardest pronunciation I've had. You helped me out before this I, asked you to say it I. Spelled out phonetically, so I probably won't say your last name again, but who? Else, I can say the first name I've got it going on. Thank you. Thank you for coming on and the first thing I'm gonNA. Ask You because I get asked this all the time because I like you I have ideas, and I want to do them and a lot of them I. Do and a lot of my don't do. Why so many different projects like? Why did you feel called to do so many different things? Oh Man, this is a this is a hard question, but I just love to do things and I love to do things together with people I love to you know actually I started traveling I always traveled since I'm young since I have a passport I obviously. I had this urge to go somewhere to find out. You know not to run away from something, but to go somewhere I was always drawn to fireplaces. Across the Atlantic duties. And Yeah So. Then I got to know my mom. Go friend at the time on a sailing trip, and so I got into sailing. And saving was just. It's amazing. I love saying I love being out at sea, and so forth and Yas, so I love to do different things you know, and I think adventures If you if you are on adventures, it's where life happens. You know out of the comfort zone. Many tear down walls of comfort zone is like Benue, fee your life, and when you do this like it. And you go, and you'll find out you explore. This keeps me going this your life actually yeah. I think one of the neat things about entrepreneurship. Just you know and starting different things is it gives you a similar feeling too? When you're traveling right because it's new, that's that's that's. The rush were probably after his. Yes, we like to see new places. Eat New foods, but the key is that it's something that we are not doing our regular life, and so these new projects that you're launching and trying out and starting, it's again. It's a new thing even if it's even if it's not getting out and traveling you starting a co working space is a new thing. It's something you haven't done before and I. Correct me if I'm wrong. That seems to be the draw right of just of a challenge. I think you'll like the enterpreneurs. We have a problem you know. So the thing is. We have to Shiny Object Syndrome okay, so there's something POPs up and you're like all. It looks Nice, and I think the problem with me is rather not to do things than doing things, so it's. More challenging for me not to start something, but although I think I have time and. I was working in most of my time. I worked for a corporations. Had good jobs I was well paid I was like I had a great life. Work life and it was really cool, but on the other hand you know I was wondering what is out there what I can do what I haven't done yet you know, and for whom do you go and work? You have to eight to five and you know like. It's it's the daily grind, and then you know at some point. I I asked myself. Why should I do that? And now I have the time to do different things and I laughed. I laughed to be the master of my time. I think this was always my biggest goal. To Mazda my own time. Yeah, we have a little quote or are saying that that Caitlyn and ricky who were parts of our location in the community, brought up, and and we kind of adopted it as well, and it's this idea that freedom is our currency, and so it's not saying that we don't grab the money, and we don't do businesses to make money, and we don't want to be good business people, but it's prioritizing freedom and one of those kind of people don't think about is time. Right is like we we talk about. About Oh, I wanNA make enough money, so I can have enough saved away so I can retire, or I WANNA be location independent. We hear that a lot and I talk about that a lot rate, but the other. The third part of that is the time and that's something that I think people don't prioritize enough is saying okay well, what am I if I'm working towards something and give out my time? What am I getting back and is that as valuable as having my time? Because a lot of times, the answer would be no. Yeah. Absolutely also triggers if you don't mind I want to tell a little bit of my story, so the thing is you know like the background? I did lots of stuff. Also jobwise I couldn't keep longer with the company for two years I had to. I was always drawn by our stuff anyways, but one time I thought you know like I was so disappointed by by one of my bosses. Said I'm going to create. That's for sure, but I didn't want to quit in the blue. I wanted to do something meaningful brings something meaningful to my life, and then I thought I. Want to learn a language better, and I want to work overseas and this before monster or chop search online. You know this was like. Two thousand six sexual, I can say to you, and then I was like applying like. Randomly basically to find a job overseas I talked to my friends to my travel friends, and so on support, and finally I got the job as development aid worker in Zimbabwe in southern region of Africa. So this is stockton and. So I really got the job and I went to symbolic and I so guided the project and ahead them to to do ICT to bring computers into rural areas in. Coastal Lake Kariba. And this is where I found out. I really got grounded. This see the people in Africa and you see their problems, and you see their lifestyle, and you see what they do, and these you know, somehow these really shook me in a way. It awaken me you know like. The people are happy. Their basic natural, being state of being happiness, which was completely I couldn't understand that at that time I thought pulling my leg. I. Thought They Make Fun of me. You know, but their natural state is happiness and I saw this. It was so interesting and the people are so grounded, and this is when I started more intensely traveling, and you know like and very got more grounded and looked at things. Rather on the lifestyle. Then then on. How much Kanai accumulate. Of, because this doesn't bring you any. By the end you know like when you look back on. Your Life is not what countered on your bank account what Collins is.

They've done all the necessary safety checks to ensure good to go there now helping me move to the edge of the platform, because my ankles are secured with tight straps around too thick layers of folded towels to protect my legs from jarring. They're about to receive. My toes are over the edge I. Look out over the Embassy River, and then I hear it three to one bungee. Jump off the platform with a grin on my face and start screaming, Hoo. I take it all in my initial weightlessness, my rate of acceleration, the of the cliffside, the rushing water below, and finally the deceleration has the Bungee saves me from a much shorter life than I would like. I bounce up and down another half dozen times before the experience comes to an end is the best one hundred fifty seven dollars. I've ever spent the not just because of the Bungee jump was even more valuable. Was the lesson I learned in preparing for this experience? One day earlier. On the morning of August twenty, second might travel Buddy Michelle inform me that due to a tight travel schedule, I'd be jumping on August twenty third, not August twenty fourth, as at initially prepared for I didn't say anything at the time, but it didn't sit well with me at all. Up to that point I'd been confidence. I played out the day in my mind for weeks and I felt in control this change tip. The scale and fears favor the reality now. Is that Bungee jumping? If it were still on, the table was to happen number one a day earlier than expected number two after a morning flight on a four seater Bush plane. Those are always eventful number three shortly after we arrived at our lodge, rob our bags, check in and take a shell to the bridge and number four with no. Way To get oriented or settle in. Let's just say that I wouldn't be in my happy place. Later that evening my friends started speaking enthusiastically about the jump, and stopped her dead in her tracks, and informed her that the change made a significant difference to me the sense we were rushing to get in and the fact that I felt I lost some control of the situation changed my jump status from green to amber with a tinge of red. She struggled to understand and I struggled to explain. Processing the change. I've told many crazy stunts over the years. Bucket list does not lie. Bungy was far from the toughest, but of needed to feel that I was in control of the variables surrounding the experience, which both insured I felt safe, and that I can enjoy the moment if anything didn't feel right at all is giving myself permission to walk away Guilt Free I. Guess You could say that I needed to feel that I was free to participate in the experience, not bullied into getting it done by people or circumstances. That night I thought long and hard about what could happen. The next day I worked through all the variables, old and new and processed what the day might look like. I thought about the transportation to the new lodge, but close I would wear the bus ride to the bridge getting a bridge pass at customs to Zimba's a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia paying for the jump and finally. Finally getting the gear on and everything involved in the jump itself the sights, the smells feel the wind on my skin, feeling the harness, my heart rate that thought process took the better part of an hour before falling asleep, and in our lying in bed, the following morning that mental preparation made the difference the calmness about me that morning, and thankfully Michelle did not bring up the jump. Indeed. Our understanding of my need to decide on my own terms may have made the difference.
Why Was a Doctor Once Ridiculed for Recommending Hand Washing?
"Even, when there isn't a pandemic gone, we all know were supposed to wash our hands especially before we eat or after we've touched something gross, but that wasn't always the case. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, a doctor was mocked for even suggesting that physicians wash their hands before working with patients, and that dear listener is how we begin the strange and sad story of Nets, some of ice, a nineteenth century doctor sometimes called the father of infection control. them vice was born in Hungary in eighteen, eighteen and graduating medical school. He started a job at Vienna. General Hospital in Austria in eighteen forty six there there. He became a gas to the mortality rate of new mothers in one of the hospitals wards. In this ward up to eighteen percent of new mothers were dying from what was then called child, bed, fever or pure berle fever. We know today that this is a fever caused by infection of the reproductive or urinary tract in new mothers? Yet another of the hospital's wards where midwives instead of doctors delivered all of the babies, only about two percent of mothers died of this then mysterious fever. similize vice began reasoning his way to the root of the problem. He considered climate and crowding, but eventually ruled those factors out in the end. The midwives themselves seems to be the only real difference between the two wards. Then Zuma vice had an epiphany one of the hospitals doctors, a pathologist accidentally nicked himself the scalpel that hit used during an autopsy of one of these unfortunate mothers. The doctor was sick and with child bed fever and he died. Zamel vice made the connection that doctors were performing autopsies on patients who died of child, had fever, and then immediately afterward going to deliver babies without stopping to wash their hands. He suspected that this was the source of the deadly problem. We spoke by with Dana Towards e eski philosophy professor at Purdue University whose name I hope I'm pronouncing correctly. She explained, basically has hypothesis here was that it was cadaveric matter from scalpels, the entered the pathologists blood, and caused the infection and same material could be transferred to the women on the hands of the doctors, because the doctors do autopsies, and then go straight to examine the women who had given birth without washing their hands, changing their clothes, or basically taking any hygienic measures at all, he then tested this hypothesis by requiring people who had performed autopsies to wash their hands with chloride of lime, a disinfectant before attending the weapon and this, the mortality rate in the first clinic fell to that of the second. You'd think that some of fellow doctors would have lauded him for this discovery, but you'd be wrong. You see in the eighteen forties. Germ theory hadn't been conceived yet. That's the theory that diseases are caused by organisms, not visible to the naked eye and people still suspected the diseases transferred from one person to another via toxic. Not Bacteria or viruses, this was called miasma theory in washing their hands. They probably wanted to be rid of whatever was causing a bad. Not to kill germs that might wreak havoc on them or someone else. We also spoke by email, but Michael Melanson, an adjunct professor of medicine at. University he said physicians of Vices. Time simply did not understand or believe that something microscopic could be wreaking such havoc on their patients. They literally believed their own is less. We feel too smug. Consider how many people currently embrace a lack of COVID, nineteen deaths among people like me geographically racially economically or otherwise as evidence that scientists are overestimating the pandemics risk. Better hand washing regimens dramatically improved death rates at the maternity ward, but some vices colleagues were at best miffed at the implication that their ignorance was killing their own patients, and perhaps implication that midwives were better at delivering babies than they were. It didn't help that Zimmer Vice essentially laid the deaths of the wards mothers at the feet of his superiors. His own supervisor countered that the hospitals new ventilation system must be the reason for the decline in maternity deaths. Also, Zimbabwe's was a Hungarian in Austria A. Working in country in the throes of xenophobia. So those doctors rejected his theories and some of ice himself as being inferior, they opted to stick with their miasma theory, and for good measure in eighteen, forty nine did not renews vices appointment. As vice eventually got a medical position in Budapest where he according to the British Medical Journal quote publicly harangued doctors nurses about hand, washing and reduced maternal mortality. He eventually published a book on the subject some fourteen years later, but it was poorly written and poorly received. Possibly, experiencing mental disorder or extreme stress from his rejection by the medical establishment, Zim of ice ended up a patient in an asylum in eighteen sixty five weeks later, he was dead of an infection from a wound that he received in the facility. She was just forty seven years old. similize left behind monumental legacy, but the tragedy of his story has made it Garner a few minutes. One of those being that demo vice was the first suggested theory about doctors transmitting germs. Kaletsky said he wasn't really a pioneer. Other people before Zamel vice had hit upon the idea that child bed fever could be transmitted from doctor or midwife to patient for example Alexander Gordon of Aberdeen showed in Seventeen Ninety. Five child had fever was almost always transmitted by doctors or midwives, and also that it was connected to a kind of streptococcal skin rash. He also thought that the best treatment was copious bleeding.

Racial Slurs And Swastikas Fuel Civil Rights Pressure On Zoom
"In Zoom meetings racists slurs and hate speech. Keep showing up today. A civil rights group is meeting with the company to demand. Do something about that. Npr Tech correspondent Shannon. Bond has the reporting but first let me know. Zoom is an NPR sponsor Rashad Robinson I encountered the term zoom bombing on social media. We started seeing people posting things and Particularly knee and others aren't at color of change in what they were. Experiencing Color of change is a nonprofit that advocates for racial equality and Robinson is its president. People were tagging him in reports of Zuma tax because so many of them involve racist slurs and harassment.

The Edward Robinson's group and others found evidence of organized campaigns out in the open on twitter and Instagram as well as message boards popular with the far right there people shared links and passwords to coordinate attacks on unsuspecting zoom users. This all comes as zoom is being increasingly used for online school Passover Seder town halls. Now Color of change says zoom must take more responsibility.

Where Do We Get $2,000,000,000,000?
"Keep reading this number with an astonished voice but I feel like I have to do it every single time to it two trillion dollars just like it just stops me every single time. It is a lot of money. Obviously if it saves the economy from collapsing into another great depression it is worth every penny so the number one question. I think that a lot of people might ask when they hear two trillion dollars. They know that the federal government does not have two trillion dollars sitting around. The federal government is already in debt so way. Are they going to get the money in the next few weeks? So okay we can think of this in terms of two buckets very very big buckets. One bucket is money that basically already exists out there in the world. The other bucket is money that is going to be created out of thin air. The magic bucket. The magic bucket was afraid. You were going to say that. Let's start with the money that is already out there in the world basically the US government is going to borrow money by issuing treasury bonds. This is something that does all the time. If you have money in a retirement account you are probably lending money to the US government whether you know it or not investors all around the world are all the time lending tons of money to the US government but these are not normal times the US economy is functionally shutdown. I worry about the integrity of the US government. Why would investors around the world still give money in uncertain times to the US government? Why would they lend money when they could just sit on cash by golder? Yes so Robert. When we set out to work on this show I called up Alan blinder. He was the vice chair of the Fed back in the ninety S. He's a professor at Princeton. And he's he's one of the smartest people I know on this stuff and I asked him that question like why would people buy treasury bonds right now. There is a huge market for. Us Treasury debt for the simple reason that it's considered the safest asset money can buy and this is a time when the safest asset money can buy. Sounds really good. You Bet you know I understand this Jacob and we say this all the time the strength of the. Us Treasury bond is that it is the safest asset but in my heart. I do question whether there are two trillion dollars worth of takers out there. Ready to stand in line for this asset when we need it the most. How do we know it's still true? You know the answer say it you gotTa talk about interest rates. You Bet so right now today the. Us Government can borrow money for ten years at an interest rate of left than one percent a year right so this is trillions of dollars of smart investor money begging to lend money the government at a super super like historically low interest rate basically giving the government money for free because they trust the government so much because they are desperate to lend to the US government because if they were worried at this point like literally if they were worried today about the US government they would charge a much higher interest rate. And you only have to look back at the euro crisis in Greece When Greece needed money investors demanded a very high interest rate the same with Argentina any of these countries in trouble. If you're going to lend the money you're going to ask for ten fifteen twenty percent return if you're asking for less than one percent return you know you're gonNA get your money back. Yeah it is still one of the safest loans you can make on the planet even with all the debt people trust the US government with their money. And if I were to wake up one morning during this crisis and find that the. Us Treasury interest rate had skyrocketed. So that is probably not going to happen. And the reason it's probably not going to happen is actually like the next hole sort of chunk of the show their big thing. Oh it is the other bucket yes. It's the unfortunately named magic bucket right. That is the money created out of thin air bucket. So so now is the part where we talked about the Fed the Federal Reserve America's central that the Fed the Fed cavalry. So you and I did a show last week about the Fed rate so just to be clear the bill we're talking about today the two trillion dollars. That's Congress right. Congress is in the middle of passing that Bill. The president is almost certainly going to sign it. That's like one whole set of things k. The other big thing going on in the world the other big response to this crisis in America at least economically and financially has come from the Fed The feds doing a bunch of things. But what's important for? This show is the Fed is buying tons and tons of treasury bonds which is to say the Fed itself is lending hundreds of billions of dollars to the US government. And and you know one question. I had here for for blinders. Wait if everybody around. The world is so eager to lend the government. Why does the Fed need to be getting in on doing it to the Fed is GonNa do that? To the extent it is necessary to keep interest rates from going up so in other words if everyone in the world is clamoring to lend money to the US government interest rates. Stay low. That's great but if people get nervous about the United States then the Fed is there to keep buying to keep that rate. Low argued example if you went back to World War. Two which is the last time really. We had a mobilize the where we have to mobilize now. It does feel like right. I KEEP COMING BACK TO WORLD WAR. Two I you should so in World War Two. The Fed was very explicit that they were going to keep the interest rate on government bonds. Very very low for the duration of the war. And that's more or less what they're doing now. Is this time. It's the war against the virus. Yes hopefully well. It'll be a much shorter war but it's hope so yeah The Fed has said it's going to lend money to the government without limit. Bright more or less. Where does the Fed get the money? Oh that's the neat part about being a central bank. It doesn't have to get the money. It just creates the money something you and I wish we could do but only the central bank can do that so all of this money these hundreds of billions of dollars the Fed is going to essentially lend to the government by buying bonds. Is that like new money that the Fed is creating new money. That's why it's sometimes we still sometimes use the phrase printing money but this is electron. Ix handover dollar bills to exchange for pieces of paper. That money will be irrelevant to this whole thing. So to recap the two trillion dollar stimulus. Rescue package is being paid for by investors like you and me investors all over the world as well as the Fed making sure that everything runs smoothly and interest rates remain low. Yeah and and what that last part means is the Fed creating hundreds of billions of dollars out of thin air and using them to buy bonds. Now this is where I start to worry a little bit because I remember when I took high school economics. Which was my last sort of formal economics. Train Ish The one thing. They taught us the one thing they taught us was. If you print too much money as a government the thing that inevitably happens is your money which is flooding into the system becomes worth less and you start to see inflate hyper even this. Is The story APOR inflation? They always tell the story of Germany in the nineteen twenties wheelbarrows full of money. Zimbabwe with its trillion dollar bake notes hyperinflation that cripples the entire economy. You can't even put a price tag on an item because it'll go up in two minutes and I mean the short version of what happens is ordinary investors. The people in that first bucket get scared about lending money to the government so the central bank that second bucket they start printing more money to lend to the central government and then investors get even more scared so the central bank prints more money and more and it and it turns into this spiral where inflation just goes up and gets totally out of control and completely destroys money. Basically and that's where you get this crazy. Runaway inflation with prices doubling every week and the value of money completely breaks down. So that's the story and I want to say just as clearly as possible. That is very very very unlikely to happen
It's a Major Award: Literary Medals and Prizes
"For today's episode. Yes I decided. I know that we're like we're kind of an award season. Yeah absolutely will talk about the Grammy's and the Oscars and all that stuff but I'm not talking about that and more highbrow highbrow. Today's episode is. It's a major award literary medals in prizes so ooh I don't think I know a lot about those great great. That's what I'm here for. Thank you so I feel like sometimes there's different there's different prices that are for specific genres of literature will cover those on their certain prestigious swans. There's ones that are for like a specific work published during a year or sometimes prizes honor a specific person and take into account their whole body of work. So it's not just like a book award. Sometimes it's just like an author award or -actly exactly in the field of literature so cool the first one. I'm sure everybody's heard of this won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Sure to this. Is that Swedish literature? Prize awarded Bennett ordered annually since nineteen o one It can be to an author from any country who has in the words of Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel produced quote in the field of literature the most outstanding work in ideal direction so while individual works are sometimes cited as being particularly noteworthy. The award is actually based on an author's body of work as a whole so literature is one of the five Nobel prizes established by the will of Alfred Nobel in Eighteen ninety-five Lauren. I know you hate it when I do this year. Can you name me? Can you name me the other Nobel? Prizes okay Health and services. That's a cab. No there's is there medicine yes okay. There's Oh God chemistry biology astronomy. Shoot up down just naming science physics yes okay. And then one more big one engineering. No and the big won the Nobel Prize. Yes these species so the fit. Sorry I know. The five Nobel. Prizes are literature chemistry piece physics and physiology or medicine. Okay I'm economics is sometimes considered under the name of the Nobel prize but it was actually added by Sweden's central bank in nineteen sixty eight and is actually named Nobel's memory. It wasn't one of the original prices. Okay so it's kind of a with an asterisk. Yes okay okay. So for literature specifically Each year the Swedish Academy sends out requests for nominations of candidates and members of the academy who are members of Literature Academies insiders professors of literature and language often sometimes for former Nobel winners and president of freighters organizations. They're all allowed to nominate candidate. And you cannot nominate yourself By April that year the academy narrows the Field Down to about twenty candidates and then a month later. There's a shortlist of five names so for the next four months everybody everybody like on the panel is supposed to read and review all the works of all the candidates like like you got four months. You have to read every book this guy ever Bro. If I know anything about academics. It's that they're not going to do that. Really really tearing back the veil here exactly so by October that you remember how to vote and the candidate who receives more than half of the votes is named the Nobel laureate in literature so no one can actually get the prize without being on the list at least twice what's unclear and so many of the same authors reappear and are reviewed repeatedly over the years. Maybe that's how they get around having to read all that stuff because they're like. I did that three years ago. I'm not doing. I'm not doing that again. So the judges are composed of an eighteen member committee. Who are elected for life. Why up until two thousand eighteen? They were not technically permitted to leave. But I can crawl can carl. The Sixteenth Gustav Amend the rules of the academy and made it possible for members to resign if necessary but at a certain point. It was like you're on the committee for that's very ominous so a literature. Nobel Prize laureate earns a gold medal. A diploma with a citation and a sum of money. How much money you ask. The amount of money awarded depends on the income of the Nobel Foundation that year but for twenty one thousand nine hundred it was nine million Swedish krona equivalent to nine hundred thirty four thousand two hundred ninety dollars and ninety cents American. That's nothing to sneeze sneeze out my man. No one hundred twelve Nobel prizes in literature. I've been awarded between nineteen o one in two thousand nineteen to one hundred sixteen individuals that has been to a hundred men and fifteen women. Geez it's been actually shared between two individuals on four occasions and seven times. They decided not to award at anybody. So the laureates have been writing in twenty five different languages over time so it's not just like not just English not just Swedish. Whatever the youngest ever to receive the Nobel Prize in literature was registered kipling. Who was forty one years old when he was awarded it in nineteen? Oh seven and the oldest. Was Doris lessing? When she was eighty eight. Wow got it in two thousand seven. Two Writers have actually declined the prize. Boris Pasternak in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and John Pulsar nineteen sixty four assaults right but the most recent winner. And that's in this whole episode. I'm going to go over the most recent because if we talked about everybody that's ever wanted a frigging a word. That'd be boring. It would be boring and fun but that would be so. I'm going to tell you about the most recent winner. Sometimes it's a twenty twenty word sometimes. It's twenty nineteen. Sometimes it might be a little earlier than that so so anyway. The most recent winner Nobel Prize for Literature Twenty Nineteen Peter Hannukah. Who is a German novelist? Playwright and poet For an influential work with linguistic ingenuity that has explored. The periphery in the specificity of human experience is how is they declared it? So Peterman Kiss for twenty one thousand nine. Was your most recent winner of the Nobel Prize in literature. Another big one is the Booker Prize for fiction. Yes okay so this. One is a literary prize awarded each year for the best original novel written in the English Language and published in the United Kingdom so the price was originally established as the Booker McConnell prize. After the company Booker McConnell Ltd began sponsoring the event in nineteen sixty nine and it became commonly known as the Booker Prize or simply the booker in two thousand and two. The title sponsor became the Investment Company. Man Group which opted to retain booker as part of the title calling it the man. Booker Prize from two thousand to twenty nineteen. So you've heard that I'm sure yes But the prize money awarded with the Booker Prize was originally about twenty one thousand pounds and subsequently raised to fifty thousand in two thousand two under the sponsorship of the man group making it one of the world's richest literary prizes in two thousand nineteen a new sponsor crank start announced it would sponsor the award for five years with the option to renew for another five so at that point they just changed the title to simply the Booker Prize because the crank start prize. No historically the winner of the Booker Prize had been required to be a citizen of the Commonwealth of Nations the Republic of Ireland or Zimbabwe but it was announced in September twenty thirteen that future booker prize awards would consider others from anywhere in the world so long as their work was in English and published in the UK stomachs. The winner is usually announced at a ceremony in London's Guildhall usually in early October nineteen ninety-three to mark the prizes twenty fifth anniversary. A Booker of Booker Prizes. Given so three previous judges the award met and they chose Salman Rushdie's midnight's children the nineteen eighty-one winner as the best novel out of all of the winners and in Twenty Eighteen to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary. The Golden Man Booker was awarded so one book from each decade was selected by a panel of judges and the winner by popular vote. Was the English
The Zimbabwean Mastermind: Paul Le Roux
"In early two thousand nine thirty. Six Year Old Paul Roux was just beginning to branch out from pharmaceuticals into into more ambitious criminal. Ventures larue was high on his own power but he was also getting paranoid. That paranoia was making him distrust. Trust even is most seasoned employees like Call Center Manager Moran Oz as had no idea that he'd somehow run afoul of Larue. In fact all signs pointed to Larue liking him after ause arrived in Manila larue drove him out to the coast in his own. BMW AM W on the way they stopped at McDonald's for breakfast. Oz knew that larue was a rich man but he wasn't surprised by the breakfast choice. In in fact is was more surprised that larue actually treated him usually win. Larousse employees met him at restaurants he would only order food for himself so their next stop was the Subic Bay Yacht Club where larue paid in advance for houses hotel room. Oz would stay here overnight tonight and then meet the other employees as he headed out to the island of Seibu. The next morning is entered his hotel room that afternoon feeling buoyant. Not only was his boss having him oversee and expansion of his company are limited but he was finally treating is like a peer paying for his food in high end lodging of course as was wrong the entire story about building an Rx limited call center in Sibu had been in a trap now as was in the open ocean with a rifle pointed at him. After a few seconds of gunfire fire. Oz took a breath of relief. He wasn't hit a voice from ondeck shouted down at him. That was to frighten off the sharks. Don't think think I missed the next time will be for you. Dave Smith the talkative British man finally relaid Larousse orders from the satellite phone. When he told is confess and will kill you? Keep denying it and will wound you and leave you to the sharks. Your choice is wracked his brain. What could he possibly need to confess to? He insisted that he done nothing wrong. He hadn't stolen Dolan from the company he would never do anything without Larousse permission. Smith said something into the satellite phone Struggled to stay afloat while larue rude determined his fate after a few more tense moments. One of the muscular men climbed down the yachts ladder. And pulled is back on board is never knew what Larue said on the other end of that phone. Perhaps he only meant to scare him that day or perhaps as had managed managed to talk his way into a stay of execution when Smith brought is back to Subic Bay Yacht club he left him with one final warning. He said we are like an octopus. We have tentacles all over the world. You need to understand that we can reach you everywhere aware. Even in Israel you are not safe anywhere. The following day larue picked up is to bring him back to Manila as got into the car hesitantly. He didn't know what to expect from his volatile boss but his ride with Larue was his only way back home to Israel Summoned the courage to ask why he'd been taken hostage and tortured larue shrugged. He claimed to know nothing about the incident but he also showed no signs of surprise or concern. Instead he told is that he couldn't be held responsible for what is partners might do he said you. Don't want to deal with these guys. They will find you do whatever they say this. This was emblematic of how larue like to handle as business. He rarely solved problems personally. Preferring to issue commands from his phone or laptop up he controlled the action from afar like he was playing a video game like he was God larue also like to use mixed signals and subterfuge fused to keep his employees off balance. No single person ever knew how their role fit into the larger operation and they never knew how larue through really felt about them lose. Employees were doing a wide variety of work all over the world from fielding customer service calls in Israel L. Transporting gold in the Congo to scouting real estate in the Philippines to assembling a militia in Somalia but despite their different skill assets. They all had similar impressions of their mysterious boss. One of Larousse. fixers tim them back as best described Larue as a constant threatening threatening presence he said it was almost like the guy never slept and you never knew which personality you get on the other end when he called he never said who he was but you knew it was him sometimes calm and other times irate and most of the time you never even knew why when Larousse employees finally met him. They didn't know what to expect because there were no photos of him on the Internet but the first thing they noticed was his size is he was white about six feet tall with an enormous girth. The source of Laura's girth wasn't a mystery. He was known to favour fast. Food food like Domino's McDonalds at his desk rather than going out to eat a steak in most aspects of life he prioritized efficiency over quality. He usually dressed in a T..

That's that's because of course he was constantly running fleets of servers. We're larue was casual about his home and clothing he. He was obsessive about his computer setup. He worked off an ancient laptop operating Microsoft software over ten years.

"Aw there is water in that whole now. Remember missionary. Steve's dad personally gave the money that paid for that well so when when the water came in the well he flew out at almost eighty and he was there for the dedication and I'm telling you he preached and dance with those people. It was just a really special day. Water came up through the hole that the expert said that there would never be production of water. Yeah Yeah Yeah I love. I love the thought to of what he said he said. You'll never get one well but I I love the the thought that with Jesus there is no never it's he. He's he's the god of miracle so whatever never has been declared over the people's lives we're talking to right now now. Whatever never has been spoke? Maybe a a child or a spouse that's wandering from God you know whatever they announce never well just remember the story. Sorry God God works was was more than ten years ago. And it's still giving water still pumping water. They've been able to get their church. Built that they were able to have before all because of the blessing ten years later at this well site in Zimbabwe well is still giving water in the church is still there. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. It's still. Yeah the Miracle Well in Buluwayo Zimbabwe Missionary Steve and Glenda Evans leaders of Africa Wastes Project.

UN asks the world to invest $29 billion in humanity in 2020
"A record one hundred and sixty eight million people worldwide will need help and protection in twenty twenty or roughly one in every forty five people on the planet the UN's top humanitarian official said on Wednesday mark lowcock was speaking in Geneva where the UN and its humanitarian partners launched a plan to assist one hundred nine million of the most vulnerable. The global humanitarian overview twenty twenty aims aims to save more lives and alleviate suffering in crises from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe and will cost around twenty nine billion dollars. Mr Lowcock said climate change protracted conflicts and economic instability are devastating millions of lives and the international community must stand up face Fox and fight back more.

Shaping the Emerging Bioeconomy
"Trump administration today about technology and how Whoa doesn't understand. Its potential to reshape the economy. Yeah so I can't speak for the White House So I think Alexander Titus was the gentleman who you are referring to spokane Zimbabwe. I Alexander was involved in the bio calm the day and he was also with us during the congressional as well so I can only speak to what we've learned and what we are speaking on and educating legislators and policy-makers around And I will tell you that. This effort has largely been bipartisan. We met with science technology and Space Committee And and the representatives that appeared were equal sides of of of the aisle. Everybody sees this as as a huge focus for For the United States and making sure that we drive this economic development so I can't speak specifically to wear the White House or you know individual congressional leaders stand on the issue. I can say from our experience. We've received very positive feedback including the White House visits but also on the hill as well. I know in two thousand twelve. The Obama Administration had published a national bio comic blueprint. This included a set of strategic investments intended to lay the foundation the nation for a future bio Konami is that roadmap still being used in any way wasn't executed on wasn't successful. Yeah IT'S A. It's a great question and I you know again speaking personally. I was living in Germany at that time so it wasn't. I wasn't too involved in in the creation nations that the documentary that process. I am familiar with it I have reviewed the documents. I will say that it definitely aligns. Too much of the initiatives that that we feel are important important to ensuring that the bio Tommy doesn't forward You know there is current legislation that is under consideration There's a bill. Hr Four three seven. Three which is the Engineering Biology Investment Bill. And so this has been In Committee for an extended period of time and I'm happy to share air that passed out of committee Right before the The recessed now back in session the prior to the recess they pass out of committee and this is one of I legislative priorities. The bottom line is to ensure that. Hr Four three seven three. which is the engineering? Biology Investment Act Get sponsorship and we're looking to really drive have this Into both the House and we've got good one site to support on the house and then finding sponsors in the Senate of driving across the line but again this is a perfect good example of of how we feel. We can be active and really advocating for these types of bills. which really look at? How are we allocating funds and infrastructure picture to support the development of our economy infrastructure being basic science training all the way through to it and computational signs of a shorter required to really orange biology? Maybe you can touch on some of the other policy issues of concern. Are you focused on. Issues of regulation workforce in public investment in our D-. What are the big issues driving the concerns of industry right now? Yeah I mean so many of those things that are important to us so so you know. Regulation is important elements of the industry and you feel that. Proper regulation comes from proper education. So our focus now is really educate h Regulators and policymakers around the opportunity as well as areas where regulation may be required Investment is a huge area that we're looking at and I you know I use similar. We know that. NIH funding has significantly increased over many many years Below we've seen as we've seen a reallocation of funds ends with an age and so on colleges become a huge area funding. And if you look back ten fifteen twenty years ago it was a smaller area. Funding overall financing hasn't changed significantly. We've had ones. We are trying to drive much of that again by autonomy alliance to look at areas where we feel incremental investments or require player and perhaps it can be a real alignment of of internal funds and resources but it's not exclusively through an age you mentioned. Dod Darva Department of Energy Number of entities are actively engaging in creating the Viacom in manufacturing and bringing more through biology but other owners for Russell important as well you know workforce issues is important that we have access to the smartest most driven best trained scientists on the planet. And you want them to you come to the United States and working business established business and want to ensure that those who are here in the United States have a have a line of sites who in education that will enable for them to move into the workforce that is a biological workforce versus perhaps a industrial base workforce. So all of us topics are very important. Join US are there big challenges that need to be addressed through precompetitive issues that need to be solved by public private partners ars. So it's it's it's a great question you know I'll say the have you know we have great examples incredible public private partnerships such as the first genome. Don't project right To sequence I I Hema Jim was was the joints between age and genome sciences and different commercial entities. is in fact when I was on the hill. I kind of preface my comments with me just think about what is the next moonshot project for our vile economy or biological thinkers in the country. You know the the Human Genome Project was one of those moon shots and we've got a lot of others out there that we should think about you. Know from fundamentally a trying to sedate the operating mechanism for biology and understanding what biological components can be put together into organisms to due to drive a new paradigm and manufacturing to really get into understanding Inter Cellular Communication Nation. And how do we look at creating environments of microbes that can communicate with each other respond to stimuli responsive wind. Listen to different response. which may again from a manufacturing process produce a compound or remediate? Something that's happening in the nature So a lot of big challenges could be put on the table and this is one of the kind of I'll say the thought experiments we've done Tommy Lines. What are some of the asset we could go for? And that's what we're working together positioning papers when you think about the biggest barriers to realizing the potential of the opportunities force today what you said they are scientific holocene economic or something else. Yes so so I believe eight largely at scientific at this point and I say that because you know as we've seen scientific innovation and come online we see the economics around that scientific innovation come together quite quickly and we can all that pretty pretty routinely as we look at you know you know go back to the example precision. Helter you know the advent next turner she sequencing sequencing targeted sequencing Really enabled us to lose today. The biology hav driver mutations within tumors which then of course informs which therapies are are prescribed to the individual. I think we're at a similar precedence. Right now and understanding biology from a manufacturing perspective of food due to feed materials perspective. Where you still fundamentally don't understand the rules to biology and I'll say that this is the largest challenge around synthetic biology synthetic biology being a interesting blend in biology and engineering and computational science you know from engineering perspective if you understand hand all the principal components you can build anything and I think when we initially went down the road of synthetic biology thought? Well we'll figure out what the parts are living organism that we can combine those into a new organism and we've learned that biologists complex and we don't really understand those principal components hence we need the new tools to loosening those components. Soon we do. We'll see those economic models fall in line so to your question. I I do believe that way now. The scientific challenge is the largest challenge. which is what we focused on through? The vital COMU- lines and ensuring that funding is flowing to the proper areas of research to enable that elucidation the principal components to enable development of the Diakonie. Jason Ganic Chief Commercial Officer script at a founding member of the bio combines. Is Jason. Thanks so much for your time. Today it was a pleasure. Thank you so much.
Zimbabwe gives public sector protest the go-ahead
"Zimbabwe's protests have been spawned by years of deep-rooted economic mismanagement by the government. President Emmerson Mnangagwa took office in two thousand seventeen big promises to revive the economy. You after longtime authoritarian leader Robert Mugabe was ousted in a military coup country has to be it's different and our relations will be normalized. Peppy visit change in great shape working. It is good young yet now. Zimbabwe has the world's second highest inflation rate. Prices marked on a supermarket shelf can change by the time. The customer reaches the checkout. The crisis has brought back painful memories of two thousand eight when inflation reached five hundred billion percent wiping out people savings causing Mr Mugabe's government to abandon its currency empty shelves in the shops speak of a nation on its knees in today Zimbabwe. The situation is becoming more desperate by the day. It's already sparked plenty of rest. In January protests erupted after fuel prices more than doubled overnight. The security forces responded violently killing seventeen people. The question is whether Mr Mnangagwa's government comment will tolerate dissent at today's March. People are expecting thousands of people to go out onto the streets in protest in Zimbabwe. Jonathan Rosenthal is our Africa editor. There are some real concern for today's protests mater and violent in particular their worries about the security forces clamping down quite hard. The reason that people are concerned is that Zimbabwe's Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa has set loose. The police in the army on protesters in the past in January there were attempts to protest and people beaten again in August those very small protests that took place in it'd been banned security forces said they would arrest people who came out and small numbers did turn out and of course it's little more than a year since the election in August of last year. That also turned violent. twit the police and army shot demonstrators. Who is saying the election had been rigged and so the protests this time around? Who are the protesters in and what what did they want? The protests at the moment of very much driven by the economy. It's much more about people. Struggling to get by rather than an overtly political protests and the reason is that symbolic he's been in slow motion economic crisis for the past few years way. Its currency has been falling. It's used to have a currency was pegged to the dollar. The government is run. Run out of dollars. So it's been essentially printing it so in many it's been producing things called on notes. It's been producing a kind of an electronic money. All of these have been steadily losing value and of course Oh civil servants. Who are the biggest group of unionized employees? I have seen their pay rapidly falling buzz devaluation of the currency rampant inflation. And so does the government even have have the means to address those concerns in the short term. There is very little the government can do is broke. It is facing recession. The finance ministers expecting growth contract by about six to the seven percent this year. There is very little riddle renewed. The government's got to meet these demands to think of the notion of inflation and Zimbabwe's to think back a decade ago. When and you know you could get yourself a five hundred trillion Zimbabwean dollar note? Is there a link between what we're seeing now in the country and what we saw. Then that's absolutely right. Zimbabweans have memory memory of the rampant hyperinflation that the head in two thousand nine hundred absolutely devastated. The economy and many people are now looking at the inflation rate which the government has stopped reporting. So it's now take communists to try to guess and their estimates of around three hundred eighty four hundred percent and of course that not only brings back memories for some bog wins who are desperately trying into shot with what many they still have. We're also seeing disturbing. Echoes in the way in which the government's is responding to this so if one goes back to two thousand eight the finance minister at the time came out and said the normal laws of economics did not apply to Zimbabwe. And therefore he could printers matrimony as you want to do and that just fueled the hyperinflation and we're seeing again at the central bank in Zimbabwe as saying what it sees is a shortage of currency and it is therefore introducing yet another new currency which was going back to printing the old Zimbabwe Dolla. Paula and simply printing is not the way in which deals with inflation so the economic situation that Zimbabwe faces now is entirely down then to government economic mismanagement management or it is absolutely the result of economic mismanagement that goes back decades if one looks at the now late former President Robert Mugabe who ruled from independence in one thousand nine hundred ensler asked in two thousand seventeen Mugabe. Firstly overspent running huge deficits. He then decided the bigger idea to grab the most productive assets in the country. Entry the farms the commercial farms had mattis cronies who then mismanaged them. And we've seen ongoing economic mismanagement where the government is simply be unable to run a balanced budget control it spending and Risher investors that if they start putting many into irrigation on farms or mines or whatever it is that they want to invest in that these assets won't just get grabbed the of course the government is not taking the blame for it saying there is a drought and indeed. The rains have been bad. It is also being particularly genius when it blamed sanctions Western countries the US EU have imposed very targeted sanctions that are really targeted against the person and our punishment for being involved in gross human rights violations whereas the broad-ranging ranges and Baldwin Economic Commerce is a lot of continue unabated so if we assume that the normal laws of economics do apply in Zimbabwe. What should the government be doing instead? How could it pull itself out of this mess? The first thing to do is to simply get out of this crazy. Business of producing new currencies many people in Zimbabwe is somebody saying let's go back to the US taller. The government cannot be trusted to prince own money that would lead to quite as severe short term economic shock probably but it is something that a previous opposition government of national unity dead and stabilize the economy after the previous battle. Hyperinflation the second thing it needs to do is to come clean on. Its major export earnings Zimbabwe. Aubrey produces a lot of minerals in particular diamonds but there is very little transparency as to whether revenue from those governments control done minds ago. Many people suspect that it is disappearing disappearing into the pockets of senior people in the government in the military. Do you think that will that tells kind of wider tail. I mean what's your view on the outlook for the country. Now that it's shot of Mr Mr Mugabe and now under Mr Mnangagwa's aside from the current economic turmoil do you think the prospects are good but we has a real opportunity and that opportunity was offered search lost last year in July when it had selections and the West essentially lines up said. We're racist lending we're ready to support debt-relief and to get this economy back on its feet but in return. What we expect is a clean election and no human rights violations? And that didn't happen. There is an opportunity now. Given how deep the crisis says for governments to put his hands up essentially say okay. We're willing to take the steel into start. Enacting some real reforms in the process. Today we're really going to be seeing people coming asking for change a chance at hope and we will see today whether the government listens to that or whether it reverts to its old tactic of simply sending in the security perceive a schism piecing processes with the streets.
Trump re-election campaign targeted by Iran-linked hackers
"Our committee issued a report in insight on saying that Russian active measures are growing with frequency and intensity and these groups pose a significant threat to the United States and our allies in upcoming elections. Would you agree with that in fact one of the areas that we have to look at it and many more companies companies many more countries are developing capability to replicate what the Russians had done the New York Times reports that indeed Iranian hackers have targeted the trump reelection campaign quote Microsoft said hackers with apparent backing from Iran's government had made more than twenty seven hundred attempts to identify the email accounts of current and former United States government officials journalists covering political campaigns lanes and accounts associated with the presidential campaign. It was not clear what information if any had been taken in the attack on the trump campaign tonight the campaign says has it has no indication that any infrastructure was hit with US tonight the man to see on these matters Malcolm Nance he's a veteran of naval intelligence special OPS and homeland security with thirty five years working in counterterrorism and intelligence and is our analyst in this area his forthcoming book one of many relevant to this discussion is the plot to betray America. How team trump embraced our enemies compromised our security and how we can fix it Malcolm. What is the lesson in this lesson in this is that the two thousand sixteen election opened the floodgates for all types of non-state and state actors to try to influence the United States elections and with the president and many of his followers not believing that there is an intrinsic Nick cyberthreat in this world that will attempt to influence our electoral process. Everyone's going to dry so a sub lesson of that. I'm guessing assing in a democracy when we have a boisterous debate on this or any other network and Moscow Mitch is a name that is hatched because the Senate majority leader's unwillingness for the longest time to get funding approved to harden our elections people can hear us when when we say that people can see our coverage in a free society in a as they say a malign actor would be foolish not to try it ten years ago. The United States had a mindset in which the defense of the nation on all sides sides was paramount and that no one would ever be allowed to come after the United States on any platform anywhere in the world even if we weren't the greatest greatest and cyber cyber hygiene that has since changed and as you say the world can hear us when the world believes the United States will no no longer defend itself you know malignant players such as Iran North Korea China you know could be anybody as far away as Zimbabwe understands that America's information sphere can be weaponized against itself and that you can go after individuals or organizations or entire countries and have the ability to change their mindset or to hack their mindset so apparently Iran is touching base on this and are trying to get the basic steps to rudimentary hack certain people or individuals around around the campaign and perhaps influence it or carry out a false flag operation making it look like someone else's trying to influence. Dan Coats once said and I'll paraphrase phrase that what kept him up at night was the rumored Russian ability to turn off the power in New England in the middle of of winter. Tell the folks watching. Chang tonight at the risk of scaring them to death before bet on a Friday evening. How bad could it get. What could someone do it could get very bad and granted this report in The New York Times about very rudimentary things right about spearfishing people clicking on the wrong Lincoln downloading malware into their computer but that's the first step in going after turning off. Oh a hydroelectric plant or shorting out a substation and plunging a million people into darkness. These are infrastructure attacks which are very hard to do because we have such a large civilian infrastructure which is not protected at a governmental level the way many other countries around the world are so you know when you turn off power. You kill people respirators. Go off until the batteries come on or a generators. Come on. It can be very difficult. People lose their air conditioning so these are the sort of things that are the far far end of the black operations and cyber warfare. Iran for example destroyed every computer in Aramco the Saudi Arabian Oil Company a few years ago using malicious malware and knocking down their systems that was not as bad as if they say shut off Wichita Talk Kansas from having any electricity all of these are within the realm of that and if we are not defending ourselves our opponents will figure out ways as to use it.
"zimbabwe" Discussed on Between The Lines
"Because he speaks about respecting democracy. He says he's committed himself to free credible listens. He's repeatedly stated that the Newseum, Bob. We is open for business democratic human rights for all fair point. Evan tom. It's very unfortunate that ZIM, Bob. Wade does not look any different Andom Nagwa as it did under Robert MU. Gabbay and as much as the speech is coming out of MSN was mouth may be about change in Zimbabwe being opened for business. The evidence on the ground suggests completely on the wise. And there's a few indicators about this the first of this indicators is that Emma, someone Gago when he came into power did nothing chew include all Zimbabweans in running Zimbabwe in a new government. He had such a moment where he could have capitalized on inspiring new spirit of unity, and when he took over power the first thing that he did was to literally not acknowledge everyone who had taken part in this new change and just went back to appointing Zanu PF people the same people that Robert Mugabe had appointed. And this was the strangest thing the exact same people who corrupt the exact same people who were involved in adulterating, our democracy, and our constitution he reappointed into places of power. Then we move onto the elections or. August at the first one day after the elections this year, we saw things that we never thought that we would see in Zimbabwe ever again. After people protested the way the election had been run, the military was deployed on the street, and they shot live rounds into protesting unarmed civilians killing six people, and that sent a chilling message to every Imbaba, Ian that it was business as usual, and quite possibly could be getting worse and the final piece of evidence against any form of change. That may be counted by Amazon mnangagwa's is the state of the economy right now, we are worse off one year on than we were at the time that Robert Mugabe step down. The is no fuel available in the country is no food on the shelves. They is no money in the bench for people to have. And the inflation seems to be up on the rise again. So this is not a very good stunt if any more things have got worse is interesting. I read an article by giant Flanagan rotting in the London Times. And she actually says that the. Zimbabwe crosses that. You just mentioned bread Bing rations process Rausing body. Our motorists queueing for fuel oil that this is the worst crosses in Zimbabwe in a decade. And that's true. What is tragic is that a decade ago? Like you said we went through exactly the same situation. We had inflation running up to the thousands of percentages. We ended up with a one hundred trillion dollar note on our hands citizens, which was worth nothing. Everyone who had saved money in the Bank lost it within hours. And of course, the constitutional rights of people in Zimbabwe in two thousand and eight at their worst and hunger has said Zimbabwe's open for business. I think the question that we continue to raise is that once Imbaba is open for business is it open for freedom. Well, on that note, tell us about Nelson Chamisa, he's a forty year old leader of the movement for democratic change Sohn's, the hub absolutely signs for hope. Nelson Chamisa has take. Taken over the running or at least the headship of the movement for democratic change, which is the opposition party. That was started in one thousand nine hundred nine from union base by the late Morgan get Morgan try and get I passed away in February this unfortunately, relatively young to roll. Yes. Oh, yes. Relatively young compared to all the people around him that he was fighting against it was very young and Nelson Chamisa literally to Cova just in time to be eligible for the elections. You have to be forty for you to be able to stand for president. And this young man any giant index cited this Imbaba again for the first time since two thousand eight to hope for change to participate, especially the young voters and Nelson represents the future of Zimbabwe all the best of the future. And I'm glad that the strong authorities. Let you into the country for the script if university conference Evan. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. God bless you. Evan rewrite.

"zimbabwe" Discussed on Between The Lines
"And welcome to between the lines on Tom Switzer on the show. Did I prime minister Scott Morrison sets out for summit season in East Asia this week a major test of his foreign policy abilities. Now, this comes just as the previously fractured China. Australia experiences of oil. So how should we take the relationship forward? I'll be asking China experts Lynda Jakobsen and Richard McGregor later on. I was frustrated. I was now that into fail to put food on the table for my family and just out of anger and frustration picked up my phone and recorded video where I spoke about the fact that Zimbabwe is not way, it is supposed to be fifty seven years after independence, and that the reason is corruption and the solution is asked to citizens, but loving Zimbabwe enough to stand up to this rampant corruption injustice and poverty.

What individuals are looking to see is that this is not a government that's run by the rulings on a PF party that it's a government that is run by the laws of the state.

Underemployed selling things on the street. There is a lot of potential there if they were to go into new jobs, if there was better business development is at the sense, you have the sense.

The governing Zanu PF party had won the parliamentary rounds, but there was the presidential poll hadn't yet been announced and many were frustrated by the delay. Security forces opened fire on a position supporters and six civilians were killed two days later president Emmerson Mnangagwa announced he'd won fifty point eight percent of the vote at his press conference. He again repeated the mantra he'd been pushing since he came to power during a military backed coup last year that Zimbabwe is now open for business, but for foreign observers and potential investors. The elections were litmus tests to see whether Zimbabwe had moved on from the oppressive regime of former President, Robert Mugabe. So what did the international community make of the violence and what will that mean when it comes to attracting investment? Dr. Charles Lori is head of Africa. At global risk consultancy, maple Croft other one has to remember that the international investment community doesn't know Emmerson Mnangagwa very well, and certainly in the run up to the election, all eyes and ears open to understand what his proclamation of a news Imbaba would actually look like.

He can build bridges he can make promises, and in fact his approximations on extraordinary turn around from the Mugabe regime. So what we've seen and heard is quite promising and indeed some of his actual practical changes. For example, beginning to dismantle the indigenisation laws are positive signs for investors. Indigenization law is being that foreign companies had to hand over fifty one percent of their ownership choosing Bob wayans. That's correct. And what that essentially does for international investors as make some Bobby no-go country. There are plenty of other promising countries to invest in in southern Africa, and if they're going to concede fifty, one percent of their controlling assets, this simply won't choose them. Bob, we, and they'll take. Investment dollars elsewhere. That's as you say changed now though, what risks remained for investors in Zimbabwe. A fundamental risk is.
