indian and pakistani security forces but his son says 3 of its soldiers died alongside 5 indian soldiers india denies that any of its soldiers were killed some of binge of 8 has more now from was offer a buy in india in pakistan administered kashmir. pakistan's military has confirmed that 3 of its soldiers died in what it calls unprovoked shelling from the indian side on the line of control the dividing line which separates pakistan and india pakistan and india have been ratcheting up tensions in the war of words since there are more these government decided to revoke the special status of the region of kashmir military saying that not just a soldiers but civilians have also been caught up in the crossfire a number of them have been killed houses have been damaged as well as vehicles and this is happening as pakistan's prime minister visited by the standard minister kashmir just 24 hours ago saying that pakistan has intelligence that india is planning something he did not elaborate what it was but he referred to what
happened in february where there was an attack an indian side and india blamed that on pakistan this is happening obviously the backdrop of india's independence day on the 15th of august pakistanis are marking it as a black the across the country there have been protests inside pakistan and outside of pakistan as well where pakistani leaders have gone to high commissions and embassies of india one of one such large protest happened in london where the advisor to the prime minister also went the reason was that he told media that he wants to highlight the human rights violations that are being committed on the indian side of the border because it has been 12 days that india has not lifted its blockade on the kashmiri people pakistan insisting that 12000000 kashmiris are being held hostage by indian forces where they're not allowing any movement any congregation or basic telephone and internet services and shovel has more on the
story now from new delhi. the indian government is not here to fish and you responded to the news of ceasefire violations however one indian news agency has called it an unnamed indian official and said that a cease fire violation occurred box on my limited the ceasefire across the line of control in. the agency adds that the official has told the agency that 3 fourths of the soldiers were killed as the indian i mean literally it did but denied the killing of 5 indian soldiers if 5 indian soldiers have been killed at some stage the indian officials would have to respond and this could possibly be an escalation the water we are witnessing in the region right now and that is tensions between india and pakistan to quite high level busy countries have been high alert since the indian government decided to abrogate section $370.00 which is a special status that the state of german bushmeat had and gave it a certain autonomy still had on the program no foreign country should
interfere. in. china's ambassador to the u.k. issues a warning over the hong kong protests as video emerges of chinese security forces close to the border and a russian plane is forced to crash land in a cornfield after striking a flock of birds. so a very unsettled weather pattern across much of central and northern europe can see in the satellite but also as yet again these areas of chad just streaming in from the north and the west but walls that is happening across much of the south we have of course got these dry and hot conditions but also some windy conditions on me and these fronts now this is on the size you'd never like to say this is the island
just not far away really from athens on the 2nd largest island in greece hundreds of villages of had to be evacuated because of those fires hundreds of firefighters are also fighting there was of course it doesn't say because these hot and dry conditions on the winds have been pretty strong too so staying pretty much thought that through friday meanwhile across more central and northern areas there's another system heading in from the northwest some very strong winds again rain pushing through much of the u.k. just about missing from friday 900 cells is the best in london the rain though is on its way across into northern france not in south at a time which is pretty much on the average for this time of year but is very cool across into as ukraine and also into russia 16 there in moscow $900.00. cases those temperatures are about 7 degrees below the average still it is hot and dry across much of the sile so that is where you find the best the sunshine.
i was reason france. these are my grandparents. these are my parents and this is me. by them both isis and us on. this 2nd of a 2 part epic tale of the remarkable family. the father the sound and the jihad. tune on al jazeera. the look at headlines an iranian oil tanker seized off the coast of japan all to 6
weeks ago has been given the all clear to set sail despite the u.s. state department asking for its detention to be extended israel has banned u.s. congresswoman ileana sheet at the lake from entering the country on the anti boycott laws several people have been killed in an exchange of fire across the line of control between indian and pakistani security forces pakistan says 3 of its soldiers died alongside 5 indian soldiers india denies that any of its soldiers were killed. oh now italy's prime minister has said 6 european nations a willing to take in some of the 147 refugees and migrants on board a rescue vessel is least hardline interior minister had blocked the boat from docking but was overruled by a judge in russian sauna gago has mall. for the last 2 weeks more than 140 migrants have been aboard the proactiv are open arms looking for a place to dock safely they were rescued by the spanish n.g.o.s vessel off the
libyan coast. was as weather conditions worsen that c. 4 on board including 2 infants were allowed off the vessel taken by the italian coast guard for urgent medical attention. was in the middle of this a political storm swirling around the interior minister mathare salvini leader of the far right league party and one of italy's 2 deputy prime ministers he is also the face of italy's anti immigration policies but as well as supporters for his anti migrant stance. he also has his detractors. salvini had issued a decree keeping the vessel out of italian waters but was overruled by an italian judge as well as the country's defense minister who is a member of the populist 5 star movement former coalition partners with
a league of 1st 5 star template it's criticism towards the league's policies but that has changed and it is open warfare between the 2 parties there's was always an uncomfortable pairing of a many issues including immigration not that it matters in public to sell the need to double down on his decision to issue the decree. 60000000 italians pay me a salary for this obsession not to be a tender soul but to protect our borders for security the dignity and for the honor of my country if i am being a good minister of the interior then so be it if i am not good and some are prefers to go back to the past by choosing someone from the democratic party just say it. and caught up in the middle there is still aboard the rescue vessel at sea waiting to head to a new life in europe hunted by agel al-jazeera which a bugger is the doctors without borders project coordinator and is on board the
ocean viking rescue vessel in the mediterranean sea joins me over the phone thank you for taking the time to speak to us can you tell me the precise location of your vessel right now and if you have any plans to dock the boat. i know or understand my position between malta and the no if. you're waiting for the authorities to give us a proper port that we can disembark our rescue people to safely. tell us how many people you have on board the ship and what the conditions are like for them. it was a 56 people. and there are now on board safe safely with us the conditions picked up. a lot of people are seasick this is already on the suffering the big c. and they're flimsy boats and also on top of. the problems they've had coming from where they faced arbitrary detention they faced torture rape and murder is
a common thing so to keep them stranded here at sea day after day is just completely and you may not have been. women and children on board yes actually out of the 356 have over 100 who are 17 years old or younger. and how are they coping. i mean we were were we were provided here with a medical team to support and we also have our best of our and my staff and i said staff on board so you know we're talking to them we're holding their hands we're trying and people care about them and that will be with them until we can get in safely and and support but i suppose the difficulty for these people is that they've already had such a difficult journey and now the stock at sea facing more uncertain to on certainty about whether they will actually be able to to dock and to finally get off the ship
. if some of these people have been at sea for over 7 days we had our 1st rescue last friday and the boat was rescued they were already at sea for 4 days so they've been at sea for for travel on the ship we have meant for air and reprieve from there during the rescue not of long term solution for us to keep them on board and we need to have of. action so they can safely be brought to land but we know that unfortunately for those on board and for rescue operations like yourself the situation is becoming more difficult with small hardline policies and certain countries. see the solution as simply being one that refuses these boats to be allowed to dog how much difficult does that make your job are you going to
continue with your work in in the face of these challenges. you know we are here until and provide a need for people to cringe that i remember for a minute the most banks are. in the world. and if this year the recession proofing your life is that hard. for any of the previous homeless people are out here dying it's meaningless we. are here for our ships leaving lives all right well and jaipur god thank you very much for joining us from the ocean viking vessel that is stranded there at sea with over 350 people on board thank you. well migrants and refugees from ethiopia being exploited and tortured by a network of trafficking groups in yemen as they try to cross into saudi arabia this according to human rights watch and says many also encounter abusive prison
conditions once they arrive in saudi arabia before being forcibly deported back to ethiopia the rights group accuses officials in ethiopia yemen and saudi arabia of doing little to protect migrants from the traffickers and security forces u.s. president donald trump is a chinese president xi jinping to meet with protesters in hong kong to diffuse the crisis he made the comments on twitter after video emerged of chinese security forces assembling near the border with hong kong. beijing insists that they are the routine exercises meanwhile china's ambassador to the u.k. is accused foreign forces of being behind the protests in a semi autonomous region no foreign country should interfere in hong kong's internal affairs with urged those foreign forces to respect china's sovereignty and security immediately stop interfering in hong kong or fairs stop interfering in china's internal affairs so conniving in violent offenses
this should not misjudge the situation and go down the wrong path. otherwise they will lift the storm only to drop it on their feet thousands of south koreans have held an anti japan rally in the capital seoul it took place on the 74th anniversary of the end of japanese colonial rule and the japan protests have included new calls for an apology and compensation for forced sex workers during the 2nd world war relations between seoul and tokyo are at their lowest in decades but the 2 locked in a bitter trade round south korean president has called on japan to end the dispute through dialogue and cooperation. a team of nasa scientists and engineers are flying over greenland in a bid to track melting ice greenland has been melting faster in the last decade and this summer has seen 2 of the biggest melt on rec or since 2012 scientists say both
woman and woman water are eating away at greenland causing it to lose billions of tons of ice daily in the summer. we are literally watching the greenwood disappear right before a very. different having an impact all around the planet we all share one ocean though a 1000000000 tons of i thought you freeze it too old all but the world by a now this is happening today and the question is how bad is it going to happen. and what's been described as a miracle all 233 passengers and crew on board a russian airline a survived an emergency landing in moscow airport it's reported the plane hit a flock of birds shortly after takeoff which then disrupted its engines step vasant raises the details. flight 6178 had just taken off from airport in moscow when the emergency happened the overall airlines early morning flights from moscow to simferopol in crimea had
a flock of seagulls were sucked into both engines this. as the pilots of the airbus a $321.00 lost power and height they had no choice but to glide towards a crash landing. the airliner came down in a cornfield a kilometer from the runway the pilot gave instructions to passengers how to evacuate every day of. the $233.00 passengers and crew on board a ski shaken but all a life in the worst of it is a reality that will end it in the field good for beach we had landed somewhere else the flight attendants immediately opened to notice the exits and inflated there were patients light and everyone started helping each other many were running away baffled but everyone has a lot of. tens of passengers needed hospital treatment some are badly bruised 121 year old suffered a head injury although its fuel tanks were full there was no fire during the
landing and the pilots didn't deploy the landing gear to ensure a softer landing to minimize the impact of nation experts say the crash has similarities with the so-called miracle on the hudson in new york 10 years ago the airplane go very badly bent but nobody got hurt and i hope future events will be like that yes it's just a matter of chance they're all lots of birds in the sky if a big or big birds it's both engines then you are committed to a forced landing thursday's crash in russia follows another one in may when 41 people died in an unborn fire at an out of moscow airport in june 2 people died when an airline a burst into flames when it overshot a runway in siberia and not a crash is raise a concerns about the safety record of russian realigns but these pilots and crew are being hailed as heroes for saving the lives of everybody on board
a criminal investigation the last to provide answers to what exactly has happened and ever dumpsite that the tracks gotten birds here this new airport has something to do with it step 5. moscow. all much more in everything we're covering right here including the crisis that's brewing over kashmir but plenty on or other top stories as well also analysis that takes you behind the headlines which i will have for you in a couple of seconds. our top stories this hour an iranian oil tanker seized off the coast of japan all to 6 weeks ago has been given the all clear to set sail despite the u.s. state department asking for its detention to be extended the grace one tanker was seized by the u.k. last month accused of shipping $2100000.00 barrels of iranian oil to syria iran
called the seizure an act of piracy and deny the vessel was bound for a syrian oil refinery gibraltar's chief minister says he's been given written assurances that the oil will not be sent to syria it's taken time because we needed to have an assurance in writing that we could rely on which we now have we have that oh sure it's on the letterhead of the islamic republic of iran and that is an assurance that i imagine the state with the representation that the united nations is not going to want the whole world to see it does not keep 2 and i think that's why we are able to place reliance upon the other sure and in writing because if the whole world now sees iran not to keep to its written commitment i think it will say a lot about the regime of israel has banned 2 us democratic congresswoman from entering the country because of what it described as there are activities against israel. and she did tell a part of plan to visit israel in the occupied palestinian territories this weekend
shortly before the decision was announced u.s. president trump said israel would show great weakness if the visit was allowed to go ahead several people have been killed in an exchange of fire across the line of control between indian and pakistani security forces a kiss down says 3 of its soldiers died alongside 5 indian soldiers india denies that any of its soldiers were killed. 5 migrants and their companions have been allowed to disembark on the italian island of lampedusa it follows a court ruling on wednesday which said emergency support must be provided to migrants on board a spanish rescue vessel which has been stranded in the mediterranean for more than a week the boat itself has been barred from docking in lampedusa but several people brought to shore by the italian coast guard all those other top stories this hour we'll have more news for you in about 25 minutes time so do stay with us for that but coming up next on al-jazeera it's time for the stream.
year in the stream and today we're taking a look at a movement aimed at rebranding that we want to hear your thoughts so tweet us or comment on our live chat and you too can be in the stream. the finality of death is overwhelming for a lot of people in fact more than half of americans are afraid or very afraid of facing it according to a chapman university study but the birth of the death positive movement is hoping
to change the cultural mindset from cotton clubs to death cafes people are learning ways to be comfortable with dying the campaign is also the basis for a new h.b.o. documentary alternate endings 6 new ways to die in america take a look. it's do. kill me what i have to do i want to go out with the quality of a lot of you know my druid. there are so many options. we provide burns in caskets so those are all true because you say that we don't want special burials funny you know people that's why you take it off work and you know go with my friend to pick out for burial plot. he wanted the memorial service like. it's ok to do something not traditional to celebrate it to under somebody's sight.
and here to talk about death positivity from burlington vermont francesco arnold she's an end of life to law and author of cultivating the dual heart the essentials of compassionate care and los angeles california a lou arthur she's also an end of life to live and trainer in seattle washington michael had he's the founder of death over dinner an organization aimed at changing the way we talk about death and in heart michigan sarah cruz she's president of the national home funeral alliance and valinor of heartland prairie cemetery the 1st all natural burial ground in kansas welcome everyone to this stream i want to start with the view from our audience our community because we asked them why is this conversation so difficult to have acknowledging that it is a difficult conversation and this is the answer from mr mack attack on twitter who says it's because i like being alive so get so with that in mind i
would agree i would agree with our viewer on twitter here i want to open this one up to the floor when was the 1st time you were faced with your own mortality you want to take that one on 1st. after. the very 1st time i faced with my mortality was when i was on a bus in cuba with a woman who was 36 and had uterine cancer and rather was really about the end of her life it brought the end of my life into very sharp focus i had had conversations about death the a radically but it was the 1st time that i thought i'm going to die everybody here is going to die why are we not talking about the fact that we're going to die why are we not living in a relationship with the end of our lives consistently and for me that was the 1st time that my death the end of my life actually became very very salient but it had the power to bring me back into the present moment and to help me redefine the values upon which i wanted to live and the values upon which i want to carry out the rest of my life. michael. yeah well it actually was
a pretty sad moment it was when i was in 2nd grade. and my father who was much older than most fathers was diagnosed with alzheimer's and that was the beginning of his decline what wasn't clear and what wasn't make clear to us is as children was that he was going to die and it was on me soon and the lack of conversation about death the fact that if this almost shameful amorphous presence in our life proved to be really detrimental to our family to me personally but also to our family structure and. my father's illness and his loss at a very negative us. all of our family the health etc and so it's one of the core reason and probably thought or reason way to this were so people don't have to have
that experience thank you for sharing that with that sorry to hear about your loss there francesca what about for you. i think for me i experienced the loss of loved ones a little later in life i lost a dear on when i was in my twenty's but it still wasn't about my mortality when she died it was about my grief and my connection with her it wasn't until i had my own children that i really started to think about the impact of my death on other people and that was the impetus for me to start planning and preparing in trying to do what i can to organize my own lying and lying for them. and sarah my story is similar to francesca as i didn't spend a lot of time thinking about it but i had an experience of beloved aunt dying when i was quite young 12 years old and. you know ever since then it's just been really taking a look and when i had children that's when really my own mortality became
a little clearer and decided it was important to pay attention so i want to share this from juliet on twitter who says it isn't inevitable part of life that we all have to deal with sometimes very unexpectedly but we don't discuss it we use euphemisms to pussyfoot around talking about it even in the event of a peaceful expected that it is very isolating for survivors when others are simply unwilling embarrassed awkward in addressing the subject of the dead person and feelings associated with loss of guilt anger grief because they've never been encouraged to talk about it michael why do you think it is that we're so afraid to talk about this subject and so awkward about it when we do talk about it. well i think there's lots of reasons i have a lot of compassion for the difficulty that people. were actually not designed as humans to face our mortality something called
a number of different viruses that keep us from thinking about thinking about the fact that we're not going to be here daniel kahneman the nobel prize winning psychologist did a credible work around these biases that certain things out of reach really so. i mean there are so many. acts of negative effects of this case in this situation but one of the big ones is that if we don't know what loved ones wishes if we don't have this conversation we don't know it on earth and if we don't know how to honor someone. we grieve longer and we grieve longer it has huge and. it's also leads to an incredible number so there's a motion loss and there's financial loss there's a low wrapped up in this one. and of course part of being wrapped up in that
conversation is the different cultural experiences that we all bring to it so i want to share 2 different tweets here the 1st is from rama and i'll direct these to you rama says this is a fascinating topic i'm generalizing to some extent here but what happens post death is not given much more serious thought in kenya but oaks dying without wells triggering a long drawn out succession battles are rather common and we're still stuck in the bury or cremate debate so that's one person reading from that experience another writes in this is dan how sad. and whose has death is inevitable i don't fear death i only fear what i will face after death as a muslim and though i bring these up to ask whether or not you think that this conversation in itself is one that is specific to the audience listening or do you think this is something that's universal and can be applied to people of different faith traditions different backgrounds different cultures. one of the most fascinating things about death is that it is entirely universal everybody's going
to have to experience that one point or another so the conversation about death wellness that's something that is a political to every person on the planet different cultures deal with it differently and so that creates some variance and i were preparedness for it and our relationship to dying in a lot of the cultures there's still busy a sense of elder hood and elders i revere it whereas in places like the united states for instance aging and you have a premium upon it and so in cultures where there is a stronger respect for elder hood and for the aging process i find that there is a great a relationship to dying and a greater awareness or. or coming together of the fact that life eventually means getting old and possibly definitely dying so variance is make a big difference but the reality is it's just it's a political to every single one of us the way that our culture has changed now also
has a big impact in that we're dying not in community so much anymore we go off to elder care facilities or we die in hospitals there's not a bunch of i'd like to add to that yeah absolutely i want to that not of your we. dying in. medical settings for the most part 75 percent of people in the u.s. say that they would like to die at home we're also then outsourcing the care to what has become it like $20000000000.00 a year industry rather than reclaiming that tradition of caring for our own at home and then having a natural burial afterwards so that kind of those sort of cultural traditions of taking care of our own being familiar with the at tasks associated with after death care have completely gone away from this generational wisdom that have been passed down for millennia. and that's so it's we find. a counterpoint
in the food industry we industrialized or food or food is not as to tricia's. as a result we turned. into a medical or stacked medical where it's actually a community. it's what sarah was discussing there's a replay me that is possible to us but that actually requires litters so to make our decisions about anything we need literacy and i think that's the work that all 3 analysts are doing in our month which is raising the literacy around. reducing the taboo but if you want if we have time not just to talk about the door and the drill but actually sure it was an area that. i of course we have time for that and i think that it's part of what this conversation is but you raise so many important point there that i wanted to pick apart them so that we make sure we get all of them one of the things you talked about is the fact that this is kind of been
medicalized and turned to something that is not such an empathetic process anymore so i wanted to share this from calve who says practically i have a will i want to be buried in as low impact a way as possible ideally under a tree after every scrap of me that can be used to help someone else has been taken from me my body is just a vehicle for my soul once i'm done with it i don't much care and sara naturally i'm going to give this one to you because this is something at the heart of what you do so when michael was talking about did the way because it's really not to put words in your mouth michael but the gist of it was this is become such a cold process you're trying to push away from that sarah that's correct so you're not only is the dying become a cold process but the. burning ourselves has turned into immensely resource intensive the way that we do it in this country. we're burying just. ranges of amounts of steel and coffin
excuse me and concrete and like rain forest her harvested hardwoods in the ground every year not to mention all that embalming fluid and what people don't realize is that none of that is necessary you literally can be wrapped in and. that can be as simple as a quilt that your grandmother made and laid and made sure one of the things nature does best is decompose you know and it's just so simple we'd like over complicated not only dying but after death care and and burial you know i don't. like to add for i really acknowledge you for being so clear about what your wishes are and absolutely fair point it's very important that those of us that have values and caring for our planet while we're living need to carry those
through into our dying as well one very very key point however is to make sure that we are writing down our wishes our wishes need to be written down and it requires us to talk about it 1st so the people in our lives know what it is that we want written down so that after our death the people in our lives aren't struggling to try and figure out what we would have wanted so a little i love this point well i will admit i do not have a will and i talked to my sisters about it often and were morbid and so we talk about the next time thanksgiving rolls around and all the family is together we want to sit down and make it a will writing sessions so that exactly that happens show of hands that our panel how many of you have a will how many of you have family members and friends who know your wishes. aside from just a will will likely. because actually dealing with this exemption what about your desires for life support that causes so much more grief and hardy than what happens with your are granted that is difficult as well but people care about they care about what you value along you want to be kept on life support what. you event that
you can't leave things matter right. francesca are you trying to get we haven't heard from you i had francesca i also feel like it's a service to your loved ones to develop your more personal wishes so i myself have created a death journal and my family knows where it is and that it exists and they've seen it in close form and within it i have mementos i have photos i have it's kind of a scrapbook of life but it also has has messages to my family it has all of my wishes it has the ways in which i hope that they take really good care of themselves during grieving so in this way it's a give me peace of mind knowing that i'm doing as much as i can in advance and that i can still care for them in my absence so they have everything planned out everything that i've thought of the music the poems the readings what i see as being comfortable as an atmosphere for my dying and for my aftercare plan well
here's another group of people that are doing just that a couple tweets here from good to go that's the organization they write i facilitate advance planning parties where people while young and healthy can get together it's like a death cafe but with homework so it was a rock'n'roll death soundtrack cocktails and potluck dishes to share we talk about death duties and go over the good to go departure file before an emergency they go on to say that we gather together to talk about death grief dying and death preparedness and attendees leave with advance planning documents so this is one idea but taking it even another step forward or someone who sent us a video comment about something called the dinner party it's similar to what you do michel so i'll play this from carla fernandez and i'd love you to tell me what you think about it. now assume that 20 and 30 somethings just don't want to talk about grief and loss and life after but for those of us who actually lived it and are
oftentimes the 1st people in our peer group to lose someone we very much do want to talk about it or some of us do it so we don't always have the people in our networks who we feel safe approaching to have a conversation it's not really something you can bring up at the office water cooler while you're out of the bar so through the dinner party we're helping to match people to one another based on or zip codes based on what they like to do on the weekends so that they can actually have a community of friends who get it and understand the highs and the lows of life after losing someone and help each other move forward together. so michael that's one way tell us about that over dinner one of the words that carla and that was the dinner party so and i also want to acknowledge even though we're giving people a lot of great ideas it is very hard to get these things done i spent 7 years building just over dinner there's been over a 1000000 people it was set up and use our resources here death of a dinner god or. sort of a book about how to have
a conversation about death and i did complete my will and i used the 5 wishes to do this in still i had published the book so how did it takes i have a great deal of compassion for people that haven't broached this topic and one of the ways that it has been difficult for all of us is that people haven't made it attractive haven't made it graceful ways or exciting ways to have this conversation over dinner is that it is here is a beautiful way to have this conversation and we give people the scripts all of the resources for free online. and the people have. our sometimes sometimes a narrative. neal where they talk about not just death but really how they want to . and i want to give we've been talking a bit about the stick i want to give people the character here that sure that's attached to this conversation we know that facing our mortality actually
makes us funny there are studies that have and it improves our sense of humor and there's been an earlier work done by dr dad about how it actually increases our capacity to love and our ability to connect with our life partner and so you know we get laughter and love and human connection out of recission those are the things we need for a bunch of those are the things we want in life so it's not just call that we're selling here i love that you have and this is a tweet you got from campsie who says. embracing death can assist us and living a happier life it can make us savor every day we spend alive it is hard but anyone who can should accept that as a surgeon so those who have accepted that fact i want to push on just a little bit to introduce another idea this from dr and that's mal and she's the person who gave us the idea for the show in the 1st place she pitched this topic because she wanted us to look into end of life do laws and she sent us
a video comment about what that is and for cesc i'll direct this one to you have a listen what do end of life do is do we work with people often from the time of the life limiting of terminal diagnosis all the way through to the act of dying to death and sometimes we even help with the funeral and grief support afterwards if you want to live like me with clients focused clients and to decline led disappoint okie from compassionate communities laugh with you listen to you. answer your questions honestly and openly we're here for you let's talk. for jessica. that's beautiful i really appreciate her the scripts and you know we are not medical emotional support people and the demands that we've seen for our training course has been astounding it's remarkable how many people are stepping up into this work and are interested in it we've had over 500 people complete it on
line we're getting people from all over the world but we're not only getting private practice to us we're getting doctors nurses nurse's aide spiritual care providers mental health workers office volunteers people are eager for this information how do i offer compassionate support how can i come in with a 9 judge mental approach how can i sit with people in silence it's really beautiful and it gives back to me so much more than i can explain and the way you are and also you know what i've got to do i see you try to jump in there but i'm so curious are there many people of color doing the work that you do. there are not yet. i find it often when i walk into rooms the practitioners there are generally probably in the 50 years shane age range an older white woman not only do we not have a lot of people of color we also don't have a lot of men and we also don't have people that that assign any that outside the gender conformity so what i'm finding particularly with my work is that i've
created opportunities for people to have representation and feel as though they're somebody who understands what their background is and particularly what is important to them in my training course also where i trained through those i'm finding that i'm i have a lot of people of color that are signing up for this course lot of people that identifier square or are there somehow and it's really important since all of us at some point are going to die it's very nice to know that the person that's sitting across from you might understand your experience and we can learn not only the emotional spiritual and practical components of caring for dying but also honor the individual as a complete individual as a complete individual looking at all elements. i want to bring this up here in the closing minutes of our conversation and syringe as you try to get in there so i'll direct it to you says she wants people to know it's ok to say they're dead out loud
acknowledgment of ownership over i want mortality can only lead to being more relaxed talking about death would you agree with their. i absolutely agree with her you know starting to use rather than using use for miss him stu use the actual words you know even when we're talking with children about death but i wanted to add to what the death due allowance where we're saying about being there you know present go on down the continuum of care. that after death work becoming familiar with these after death task caring for our own once loved ones at home being physically and personally involved in the burial of our own. allows us to grieve a little more healthily perhaps and we've relegated ourselves as spectators after death you know where we stand there and have it done for us and so a lot of my work is about choice people understanding that they can do this legally
you can keep a body at home you can take care of it there you can and you need to maybe connect with the home funeral guide who knows the laws in your state but in virtually every state you can do this and find out if you've got a. green burial ground nearby and so check out the home funeral alliance that org to find a home funeral guides that are familiar with state law and. and i'm glad to bear out counsel yeah go ahead right up there because what what the user is getting is a laundry list of some great ideas and great practitioners and what we're still looking for resources somebody when they're in the middle of a crisis we're grieving do the students want us practitioners what we've said i wish was like a month and hour of things that were about to launch this platform for the best practitioners you know right well i like that idea but michael i have to pozzi there someone take that idea and run with it that's all the time we have for now
but thank you to french has a little at michael and sarah for being part of this conversation and a big thank you to our community member who pitched the show until next time see online. an estimated 100000 lives cruelly ended over a century ago. a distant past not to the descendants of the sultan. a tale of colonialism and racial supremacy unravels and the quest for justice and

assurance in writing that we could rely on which we now have we have that assurance on the letterhead of the islamic republic of iran and that is an assurance that i imagine a state with a representation that the united nations is not one to going to want the whole world to see it does not keep 2 and i think that's why we are able to place reliance upon that assurance in writing because if the whole world now sees iran not keep to it's written commitment i think that will say a lot about the regime and so i think the regime is untitled to have its word respected and then we'll see how the whole thing plays out going forward al-jazeera is andrew symonds has been following this story closely and brings us more from outside that courtroom in gibraltar. after 43 days grace warm is free to go despite a last minute attempt by the u.s. department of justice to try to get the detention order extended eternal general's
office seemed in a spin at the start of the day when the 1st hearing was held because they affectively there was one application on his desk for one thing the other words for an extension now the judge ruled that there was no formal application by the u.s. and in any case he said it was out of his hands now because the iran effectively was complying according to the government here with what they wanted there is no longer any sanctions busting going on they carried out by jus law the correct procedure they say they describe it as one of most of the most successful sanction acts for the european union since the syrian war started so this is now the situation the tanker is likely to leave quite soon and the u.s. has to go through a legal body here and you brought an independent legal body which shows no sign of
doing something imminently so the grace one will be on a voyage soon somewhere we don't know but certainly not syria it would see they have given the gown tea to the authorities here but there will be no delivery of this like crude oil to syria furthermore this ship has been reflagged is now iranian own completely proven now as far as the authorities here are concerned and without that destination of syria involved it is free to go right away. in our other headlines israel has banned 2 us democratic congresswoman from entering the country because of what it described as activities against israel. and rashid at slate had planned to visit israel in the occupied palestinian territories this weekend shortly before the decision was announced u.s.
