L'armée malienne a annoncé dimanche dans un communiqué le retrait du pays du G5 Sahel, alliance militaire luttant contre les groupes jihadistes. Pour justifier sa décision, la junte dénonce notamment l'échec dans l'organisation d'une réunion du G5 au Mali et les "manœuvres d'un État extra-régional visant désespérément à isoler le Mali". Seidik Abba, journaliste spécialiste du Sahel, analyse dans ce journal la portée de cette décision.
« Au moment où nous parlons, une deuxième évacuation est en cours, un deuxième convoi de l'ONU et du CICR s'adresse aux civils de la ville de Marioupol », annonce ce mercredi soir António Guterres, dans une interview exclusive à RFI. RFI : Ce mardi, lors de votre étape à Niamey, vous avez demandé à la communauté internationale d'investir à fond dans le renforcement des capacités de l'armée du Niger. Est-ce que vous pensez au renforcement de la Task Force européenne ou peut-être à l'arrivée d'autres forces internationales ? António Guterres : Non. Naturellement, ces forces sont bienvenues et elles sont importantes. Mais il faut renforcer la capacité du pays à se défendre lui-même. L'armée du Niger est une armée qui a démontré un courage exceptionnel. Alors, vraiment, c'est un effort gigantesque pour une armée qui est mal équipée et il faut qu'elle ait la capacité de mouvement, la capacité de renseignement, des drones, des voitures blindées et climatisées -parce qu'il y a des températures de 44°C, je les ai éprouvées moi-même- et d'autres instruments de vision nocturne, des équipements adéquats au combat contre des terroristes qui se mouvementent très rapidement dans des motos, et en même temps, renforcer l'entraînement et la capacité de ces forces. Naturellement, la présence de Barkhane ou Takuba est extrêmement importante mais mon expérience me dit que ce n'est pas possible de défendre un pays seulement avec des forces étrangères. Et quand on voit la situation au Burkina, quand on voit la situation au Mali, où il y a eu des coups d'État militaires, je crois qu'il faut vraiment transformer la frontière du Niger en une muraille. Une muraille qui ne permets plus au terrorisme de pénétrer, et pour ça, il faut que l'armée du Niger ait une capacité bien au-dessus de ce qui existe aujourd'hui. Justement, vous parlez du Mali, vous parlez du Burkina, lors de cette tournée, vous vous êtes adressé aux trois pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest qui ont connu un coup d'État. Vous les avez invités à rétablir l'ordre constitutionnel dans les plus brefs délais. Mais, regardez, au Mali, les militaires veulent rester au pouvoir pendant encore deux ans. Au Burkina Faso et en Guinée, ils veulent rester pendant trois ans… Est-ce que vous n'êtes pas en train de prêcher dans le désert ? Non, je crois que les situations sont différentes. La Guinée, c'est peut-être la situation où le dialogue est le plus difficile. En ce qui concerne le Mali, c'est vrai qu'il y a encore une proposition de deux ans mais c'est vrai qu'ils ont commencé par cinq et que le dialogue continue, alors espérons qu'il soit possible de trouver une solution. Et au Burkina, je crois que le caractère du coup d'État a été différent. Au Burkina, il y a une situation d'extrême fragilité et le dialogue continue et je m'attends à ce qu'il soit possible d'avoir une solution, au Burkina, qui soit acceptable en matière de délais de la transition. Au Mali, à la fin du mois de mars, plusieurs centaines de personnes ont été tuées à Moura dans le centre du pays à l'occasion d'une opération de l'armée malienne. Mais depuis cette date, l'équipe de la Minusma qui voulait enquêter sur cette tuerie n'a pas été autorisée à se rendre sur place. Est-ce que les 14 000 casques bleus de la Minusma servent encore à quelque chose et le mois prochain, devant le Conseil de sécurité, allez-vous plaider pour le renouvellement ou pour la fin de leur mandat ? Il faut regarder la situation réelle. La situation réelle, c'est que sans la Minusma, je crois que le risque d'écroulement du pays serait énorme. La situation réelle est aussi une situation de coopération très difficile entre la Minusma et les forces maliennes en ce qui concerne les questions de droits de l'homme. Pour nous, ces questions sont essentielles et nous n'allons pas oublier ce qu'il s'est passé et nous allons continuer à insister. Il faut une enquête internationale crédible sur ce qu'il s'est passé parce que, naturellement, la protection des civils est un aspect essentiel de la Minusma. Si vous me demandez si je suis confortable avec cette décision, je dois vous dire qu'en tant que Secrétaire général des Nations unies, je constate que l'année passée, on a eu des casques bleus tués au Mali en plus grand nombre que dans toutes les autres opérations de paix. C'est pour nous, vraiment, une situation très difficile et très dure, et je rends hommage au courage des éléments de la Minusma. Je ne vais pas proposer que l'on termine cette mission, parce que je crois que les conséquences seraient terribles. Mais elle se déroule dans des circonstances qui, vraiment, demanderaient non pas une force de maintien de la paix mais une force robuste d'imposition de la paix et de la lutte anti-terroriste. Et j'ai dit à tout moment qu'il fallait que cette force robuste soit une force africaine de l'Union africaine, mais, avec un mandat du Conseil de sécurité sous chapitre 7 et avec un financement obligatoire. Ce que l'on a fait avec le G5 sahel avec un mandat très faible sans une supervision efficace, parce que le mandat aussi ne le permettait pas, avec des contributions volontaires qui ont largement échouées, ce que l'on a fait avec le G5 Sahel, doit être, pour nous, une leçon très forte. Il nous faut combattre le terrorisme avec des forces anti terroristes robustes et je dirais que seuls les Africains auront la capacité de le faire, si le Conseil de sécurité accepte, une fois pour toutes, de garantir des fonds par des contributions obligatoires. Que pensez-vous de la suspension définitive de RFI et de France 24, le 27 avril dernier, par les autorités de Bamako ? C'est une violation d'un principe essentiel pour nous : le principe de la liberté de la presse. Nous vivons malheureusement dans un monde où se multiplient les situations où les chaînes sont coupées, où les journalistes sont arrêtés, quelques fois même, sont torturés ou tués. La liberté de la presse est une question essentielle. Sans liberté de la presse, il n'y a pas de liberté et il n'y a pas d'informations qui puissent combattre cette logique de propagande, de désinformation qui, aujourd'hui, on le voit un peu partout, créer cette méfiance généralisée des gens vis-à-vis des institutions.

On today's Locked on Ole Miss podcast we talk about what we all saw in the Grove Bowl on the OL and the work that needs to be done by Charlie Weiss Jr as we go on…We explain how the OL is blamed when it is not really their fault and why pass protection has become an all 11 thing. We talk about the relationship that is developing between G5 and P5 and I used Troy Brown as an example of what that is becoming and I believe you are going to see less fall between the cracks because of the Transfer Portal. Finally, we dive into the NFL draft and the flaws relating to players that is of their own making.

Srinath Rajam is a Director at TVS & Sons, Chairman at Kwik Patch, and one of the four sons of the high profile TVS group of companies. The TVS Group is a long-standing family business, running for over 110 years, which has interests in everything from auto components through to finance. Now after over a century in business, the TVS group has decided to amicably separate. Srinath talks about this historical event and how by keeping it amicable, it sets the stage for the next phase of growth. Standout Quotes: * "The process of how you manage a company is not taught anywhere; the process for how you manage people is not taught anywhere so these are things you need to learn by watching" - [Srinath] * "Unless all of us are good human beings, we cannot work in a group" - [Srinath] * "If the family is not in one piece... the businesses are going to fall apart" - [Srinath] * "I don't worry about control, I worry about what's best for the business" - [Srinath] Key Takeaways: * Srinath is a 4th generation member of the TVS and Sons Family. He talks about a historic date when the family will finally be breaking up the company and separating after 111 years. Unlike many families which split with resentment and animosity, this breakup is rather amicable which sets the stage for growth in the next phase. * The seeds for the separation started in 1974, although from the onset, at a point when the Founder of the company had his influence waning as a patriarch, there was already a lot of mistrust. It was in 1974 that it became clear that there was no future for the company to continue as one large family which is now manifesting. * Over the 48 years since the first conversation was had about splitting up, the company has lost opportunities to advance in IT, however, they were able to structure the core competence of the existing companies. * The first phase was in 1927 when the company became the dealer for GM in South India. The next phase was automotive component manufacturing which continues to be the most profitable aspect of the business. The third phase is a two-wheeler operation, which is the largest and most valuable company. Most recently, the supply chain has also been racked up, which is the TVS Supply Chain. * About the two-wheeler operation: in 1972, as a young teenager, Srinath had discovered what looked like an electric bicycle which his grand-uncle was creating as a cheap way for people to move around. The engineers had said it would not be possible, but he invested energy, time, and money in it based on his conviction. By 1978, he passed on 10 days before the company was opened. The group was also into all sorts of automotive industries. * The strategy for the separation was that whoever is managing will continue to look after business till the separation, then the valuation was done in 2014, and the difference would be settled in cash. The Indian legal system encourages families to have such a business understanding, which was not initially accepted by all 64 shareholders but with persuasion, they agreed to implement it. The company also has very strict requirements regarding competence and experience to join in the business such that family members are not guaranteed an automatic seat. * Some of these requirements for joining the family business include Graduation from an Ivy League school, a minimum of 3 years of work experience outside the family business with no help getting the job. These and more only qualify members to apply, after which a competency board will assign a mentor who looks after the possible future leaders, and then they can grow from there. These new family members entering into the business start with a small responsibility like one of the smaller subsidiaries and are mandated to only report to a professional, not their parents. * Based on these requirements, most family members are only qualified to apply by their early 30s, which is beneficial for the company because emotional maturity is also critical. * Although G4 wasn't particularly groomed for management, they intend to identify those things they lacked and make them available for G5. Since the process of managing companies or people is not taught anywhere, G5 has to be properly introduced by participating as observers in top review meetings. Most of the methods and practices being implemented to groom G5 are ideas from John Ward. * Even though many families apply all sorts of family governance structures, not many are successful, meaning those structures do not guarantee anything. The question is "How do you make this work?". The first requirement is trust; without trust, none of these things can work. Next is transparency, and the third is to be Just and Fair. People working together must be good people who like being around each other. Additionally, fairness, compassion, and carrying people along, have been more efficient than any of these structures. * To address the issue of power grabbing in the 60s, a change in the business system was made such that no decision can be made without the unanimous consent of the members present. It protected the person managing the subsidiary such that they could not be fired easily but the bureaucracy at the same time restricted opportunities for risk and growth. Hence the success of the group depended on the competence and ambition of the people running each company. However, while the trust was lost and growth was delayed, the companies held on better to funds for reinvestment which promoted overall growth. This however created problems and resentment from the shareholders. * When John Ward came along, he increased the dividends to the non-working shareholders from 10 to 25%. Dividend taxes were also removed from the income. His approach was to make the family happy knowing that most of their problems could be addressed with cash. Some of the dividends were also used to take care of the educational needs of non-working shareholders. * The family has about 80 shareholders, and after the break-up, things will fragment, and there will not be the usual large family get-togethers. Nonetheless, there will still be some rearrangement because some of these small businesses will come together to work to be more efficient. The strength of emotional bonds will also determine the interaction between these subsidiaries in the future. * Unlike the previous structure of the large family where there was no exit clause, Srinath's family business will have one for the shareholders. The company will also take advantage of the newfound freedom from the bureaucracy of unanimous decisions, to take risks and opportunities to grow. * In Srinath's family enterprise now, G4 members are only allowed to pass the shares to the linear descendants. Spouses, sons-in-law, and other members cannot enter the family business. This doesn't necessarily guarantee any birthright for the G5; some G4 members have donated all their shares to charity. The G5 is guaranteed to get no more than a decent standard of living and good education. * When it comes to lineage, no differentiation is made between sons and daughters, it is simply a factor of competence. TVS has a balance between business and compassion, rather than overly tilting in any direction. * Unfortunately, the larger family has never compiled books, photographs, or formally tried to document the family history; this has been a huge disappointment. However, Srinath's uncles tell him not to worry about the past, but to focus on what he can now do in the future. * The logistics business was a brainchild of Srinath's cousin, Danesh, and started 10 years ago. The business supplies anything anywhere and unlike FedEx, they can design something and assemble it at the destination. The Rajam family only is entitled to the IPO; they are buying out the shareholding of everyone else. * One of the most important things to imbibe is to be fair and just, whether at work or in personal relationships. It goes a long way to make people trust you and builds the energy of people around you. * From Srinath to his children: Firstly, be fair and just, be a good person. Secondly, you must add value to the community; do not chase wealth, chase the creation of jobs. Be a positive person always.

Anthony Contrucci is a proud 5th Generation member of the Schrage Family. He serves in many roles within his broader family enterprise including his role as President and Board of Director of First Bancshares, Inc. (FBS) a bank holding company located in Merrillville, Indiana. FBS's primary operating asset is Centier Bank (https://www.centier.com/). Founded in 1895, the Schrage family has owned and operated the financial institution for 126 years. From humble beginnings, today they are the largest private, family-owned bank in the State of Indiana with approx. $5.8 billion in total assets, over 60 branches, and in excess of 900 associates. As his career has evolved, he has developed a true passion for governance and operations. One of his current focuses is the codification and institutionalization of the key elements that differentiate his family's enterprise. At its core, this speaks to their desire to remain a purpose driven enterprise focused on the preservation of their servant heart culture for generations to come. This spans the continuum of the impact that they have on their associates, their clients, and the communities that they serve overlayed by a holistic approach which incorporates environmental, social, and governance considerations. In addition, his passion for governance and operations has evolved beyond that of traditional corporate. For the better part of the last decade, he has led their family's formalized family governance efforts. As they continue the transition from the 4th to the 5th generation, it was paramount to Anthony, and his generation, that they build the requisite operational and governance structures to ensure success in succession not just for their generation but for generations to come. With the collective support of the 4th and 5th generations, He has allocated a considerable amount of my time establishing their family office and formalized governance structure and framework. Although he feels blessed to be able to serve his family and family enterprise in a variety of roles, the role he is most proud of is that of a devoted husband and loving father. He is married to his best friend and soulmate, Melissa Contrucci (nee Schrage) and has been blessed with two loving children. Standout Quotes: * "I really believe our success as a family kind of exists at the crossroad of this desire to be civically involved" - [Anthony] * "That formula of putting people before profit is how you build long term sustainable value that transcends generations" - [Anthony] * "In order to be successful in succession, you have to be intentional and you have to be strategic" - [Anthony] * "If you think about the destination, you'll never start the journey" - [Anthony] * "If you're trying to solve a problem that you can solve during your lifetime, you're thinking too small" - [Anthony] * "Success requires action" - [Anthony] * "You can't appreciate something if you don't know how hard it was to have or you didn't have to work for it" - [Anthony] * "During times of dislocation, there's always opportunity" - [Anthony] * "The most important investment I've ever made is my time in my children" - [Anthony] * "Never try to replace your net worth for your self-worth" - [Anthony] Key Takeaways: * Anthony is a 5th generation member of the Schrage family currently serving in the role of President and Board Director of First Bank Shares, a bank holding company with a primary operating asset "Centier Bank" which was founded in 1895. They are now the largest private family-owned bank in the state of Indiana. * The Schrage family came over from Germany into the US in the 1800s, and over time the family has always been passionate about the community. This alongside the risk tolerance accounted for the success of the family because being involved with the community helped identify needs and create solutions. The name "Centier" Bank was coined intentionally to represent a century of service, the founding of the bank on Center Street, and that the bank strives to be the premier provider of financial services for the communities. The headquarter is in Merriville Indiana. * Despite the pandemic, banking is a good business to be in right now. Data from the bank shows that Centier Bank tends to outperform during times of market dislocation or pain. Clients are put even before the shareholders in the business, and this is how long-term sustainable value is built over generations. 2020 has been the best year financially in the history of the bank. * This success was achieved by consciously and emphatically considering the safety of clients and workers physically while also keeping them confident about their finances. They set out to help communities through different programs, mortgages, credits, and low-interest loans. * Anthony met his wife and her family at the age of 20 and she was his best friend before becoming his wife. Anthony had no intention of working in the family business but wanted to chart his course in life. He had always been in the financial sector, including commercial banking and investment. Later he started with wealth management in the family business, and then the investment services division. After a while strategic intentional steps were taken to ensure an impact in the community. Currently, Anthony spends time in the financial holding company level, family governance, and the family office. * Although the family has grown since the first generation, there are 27 family members and 16 shareholders. There is a family assembly every year, and also a family governance structure. * The goal of the family assembly is both business and to bring the family members closer together. One of the main reasons for starting the family assembly was communication flow. Success and succession in a family business is literally the equivalent of fighting gravity; only about a third of family businesses make it from generation to generation. * As a broader family, the family meets monthly with specific agendas and occasionally invites subject matter experts. There is also a family business consultant and a family psychologist as well as other subcommittees. There are G5 monthly check-ins with no formal agenda. * About the Family Portal: While trying to organize family documents that have piled up over many years and made work inefficient, Anthony came up with the idea of the Family Portal. This has been a great tool for increasing efficiency and improving workflow. * When it comes to starting Family Governance, "you've got to go slow to go fast". Even it is a small start, it's about building the behavior; for Anthony's family, the starting point was about Mission, Vision, and Values. This is where to start to build a foundation with simple things like a code of conduct or attendance policy. It gives some wins and then these goals can be dialed up to more complicated plans. * The Emergency Transition Planning (ETP): This refers to very detailed planning done such that in the event of the demise of a leader, things can be set in motion to instill confidence in multiple audiences across multiple mediums. It's a succession plan on steroids. * The family psychologist has been very valuable especially in helping family members communicate effectively. This also includes constructive conflict, which is the most important thing in communication and trust-building. Additionally, having a facilitator around when the family constitution was created was very helpful. However, the values or by-products of this exercise are less important than the journey. Families are encouraged to start this process and take their time. * After attending a family business conference where he was introduced to the concept of a Family Book, Anthony applied it in documenting the family history to ensure that future generations would understand how hard the journey was. While collating different materials to create the family book, an enormous collection was accumulated and Anthony had the idea to get a corporate historian to manage the collection. This brought the next idea to have a "Centier Museum" for these family artifacts. * Using the idea of cohesion dynamics which include the family aspect, as well as the business, financial and emotional aspects, Anthony understood that it was paramount to use the family history to keep family members emotionally tethered to the family business. This determines the filter they would use in making decisions regarding the family business because rather than simply thinking like investors, they would think like stewards if they felt emotionally tethered to the family enterprise. * The 6th generation is currently between the ages of 8-18years. For a long time, the family legacy was the bank, but now there's so much more opportunity for the G6 to get involved with the family enterprise and create an impact. * Advice for someone looking to lay the foundation for a Family Enterprise: Slow down; "you have to be patient and focus". The other thing is to save; "live below your means and always have reserves because having that additional financial capacity allows you to be opportunistic". * There has had to be a shift from being a family that operates a business to a family that has an enterprise. "We had the belief for so long that the legacy was the bank but now I believe that the legacy is the culture that fuels the enterprise" Thinking about it this way gives the motivation to lean into Family Governance and Family Office. It also shifts the mindset from being competitive to being more collaborative. All of this takes curiosity, communication, working through conflict, and never being afraid to fail, knowing that growth comes from failure. * Anthony's letter to his kids: Happiness comes from the important things in life; love, health, the time spent, and experiences created with loved ones. True fulfillment comes from finding something you're extremely passionate about, that is meaningful but extremely hard; if you don't grind, demonstrate grit, fail, and pick yourself up, you will never find fulfillment and self-actualize. If you always lean into what's important in life and push yourself, you'll find that fulfillment.

Take control of your diabetes and live life to the fullest with Dexcom and by Club 1921 where Diabetes Connections are made. This is Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms. This week, a deep dive into the future of Tandem diabetes. That company laid out an ambitious five-year plan to update software, move to a smaller pump and ultimately move to a tubeless version. company leaders say they want to think even bigger. Elizabeth Gasser 0:37 we have thermostats that manage our home temperature for us. We have self-driving cars we have on demand consumption services that you know, help us get our groceries and plan our meals. Come on. We should demand that level of ease of use in what we're doing here as well. Stacey Simms 0:54 That's Tandem Chief Strategy Officer Elizabeth Gasser. We'll go through the short term changes Tandem has in the pipeline like the tiny Mobi pump, she'll answer a bunch of your questions. We'll talk about the philosophy of the company moving forward, and more. This podcast is not intended as medical advice. If you have those kinds of questions, please contact your health care provider. Welcome to another week of the show, I am only so glad to have you here. You know, we aim to educate and inspire about diabetes with a focus on people who use insulin. back in December Tandem made a big splash with their very first research and development presentation. If you haven't seen that, I highly recommend that it is rather long, but it's definitely worth checking out. I'll link that up in the show notes. And you can always find out more at diabetes connections.com. But in this R&D presentation, they laid out a very ambitious five-year plan for the company, which we're going to go through and talk about in detail today. Quick date check for you This interview was taped on January 10 2022. And we're releasing it on January 25 2022. So as of right now, the FDA has not approved anything new for Tandem no Mobile bolus that is in front of the FDA, and we'll talk about that and so much more. There were a few questions I didn't have time to get to or that you sent in after the interview. So I sent those to Tandem and I will come back after the interview. I'll update you and answer what I can also after the interview, if you are a health care provider, a diabetes educator and endocrinologist if you work in those offices. And a very specific question for you. Please come back. I'll make it quick. But I need some information. And I know you will can help me. Okay. My guest this week is Tandem Chief Strategy Officer Elizabeth Gasser she says Call me Liz. So I do. Her background isn't in diabetes, it is in strategy and corporate development, working at Qualcomm in their internet services division and at open wave systems, the world's leading Mobile browser provider at that time, and we talk about what it's like to come from that world to this one, I think it's really important to kind of get an idea for these individuals, you know who they are, who are making these decisions that affect so many of us. And of course, we go through that 10 to five year plan product by product. Liz, welcome to Diabetes Connections. Thank you so much for joining me, we have a lot to talk about today. Thanks for being here. Elizabeth Gasser 3:24 Oh, my pleasure. I'm excited to chat. Stacey Simms 3:27 There are a lot of items that Tandem announced in December, there's a lot to go through there. But I wonder if we could start kind of by backing up a little bit I've heard that you Tandem is kind of talking about being less of a hardware company, right, the pump, which will always be there in some way, shape, or form. But thinking more about the software, can we step back a little bit from the products here and talk a little bit more about kind of the philosophy or the vision? Oh, happy Elizabeth Gasser 3:53 to and if you've watched our R&D day, you'll you'll know that I do enjoy expanding on this particular topic. You know, as with any connected device, the minute you take a piece of hardware, and you give it a cellular connection or or a Wi Fi connection or a connection to the Internet, you've opened up the potential way to do an awful lot of creative things with both data but also with software, it really opens up the potential for continuous update functions and capability. And then also the ability to pull and push data back and forth from a device and and once you've done that, you you really crossed into that that world of the Internet of Things which requires you to be both an excellent hardware company, because you're managing the device, the functions of that device. It's touchpoints through connectivity, but it also requires you to be an excellent software company along the way. And if you look at the Tandem journey over the past five to seven years, you really do see the company's products moving down that pathway. Of course, the pump remains front and center for us it you know, the delivery of insulin is what we do. It's how we bring that therapy benefit to our users. But you also see a start to do things like the ability to update the pump software itself that unlocks new features and functionalities, including the algorithms which we can now continuously update, it allows us to update the different types of devices we integrate with, you'll see we've obviously moved from supporting Dexcom, G5, two, G6, and we're moving to G7. That's all done through software updates. And so it's really hard to be in this space and to be talking about connectivity and connected devices without also embracing the fact that you really are a software company and have to be incredibly good at it to deliver the value that you want to deliver to your customer base. Stacey Simms 5:59 I do remember years ago, our first pump and I say our work has been he was to when he got it. So it was definitely it was a group effort. But it was the Animas pump. And then a few years or months who remembers after he got that there was an update, where you could bolus from the remote meter. But we had to wait until our insurance would cover until we were up for a new pump. We had to wait I think three and a half years before we could get that. And so when we switched over to Tandem, I think we had the pump for a month when we there was a software update. So it really has changed. And to your point it is it is really remarkable to see that. Let's talk about, as you mentioned, the R&D presentation and some of what's in development. And of course, the usual disclaimer, I am sure that a lot of what we're going to talk about here is in development, it is not FDA approved. So there are limitations, I'm sure about what you can and cannot speak about. And if you can't answer something we totally understand. But let's just jump on in and kind of go through a list here. My listeners are extremely interested in getting some kind of update on the bolus by phone, which is in the FDA hands. But I have to ask you about Elizabeth Gasser 7:07 I figured you would like the the world is obviously a very unpredictable place these days, not least when it comes to projecting FDA timelines. That said, we still feel very confident and we're planning on an early 2022 approval. So I can't say much more than watch this space. But we're still leaning into the timelines. We talked about it R&D Day and looking at getting this much requested feature to our user base as soon as we can. Stacey Simms 7:39 Can you share with the rollout process may be? In other words, will it be a simple update to the T Connect app? Will there be some kind of required or prescription required online patient training? Elizabeth Gasser 7:49 Yeah, happy to and this this kind of ties to the conversation we were just having about, you know, being a software company, right? The introduction of this feature will be straightforward software updates. And so what does that mean? In practical terms, that means updating the iOS or Android Android application to the newest version, which will have the Mobile bolus capability. And at the same time, making sure you do a pump software update so that both sides of that dialogue can happen. And as part of the pumps software update, which happens through the Tandem device updater. There will be some online training, music click through to make sure that they understand the capabilities that we're introducing. And many of our users will be familiar with how you do that. Stacey Simms 8:33 Would there be a prescription needed for that kind of feature? A Elizabeth Gasser 8:36 Mobile bonus? Yeah, no, Stacey Simms 8:39 this may be a silly question. But can you share any details of what Mobile bolus actually means? In other words, I visioned this as Benny will take the his phone out and have full functionality controlling the pump from the phone. Is that accurate? Elizabeth Gasser 8:53 Yes or no, in that the primary goal of Mobile bolus is to allow for the delivery of a bolus from the phone. So in that sense, you're absolutely right, it will become for most of the day, the app will be the vehicle through which you can interact with the pump the piece, it won't do his full control of the pump. Meaning when you need to go in and look at changing settings, for example, that's not going to be in the Mobile bolus release. That's something that you don't have to do all the time, and can reasonably be done by taking the pump out and using the user interface on the device. As we get to the movie launch. Obviously, that will not have a screen. And so those control features, what we call full control will migrate into the app as well, for the movie pump. Stacey Simms 9:46 Of course, yes, that makes perfect sense. I'm not going to let myself get too far ahead because boy do I want to ask you about but to just stay on on Mobile bolus for one one or two more questions, but with Mobile bolus are there other There are features that will be on the phone, obviously, it Elizabeth Gasser 10:03 will marry with the app that currently exists today, right. And so that that is predominantly today, a secondary display tool allows you to see all of the things that are going on with the pump allows you to see blood glucose readings allows you to see insulin on board allows you to see the insulin delivery that you've conducted through the day. And so all of those features will remain. And the focus here really is on augmenting it with the ability to deliver a bolus from the phone. And so that sort of feels like it downplays. No. But it's incredibly, it's an incredibly exciting augmentation, and one that we think is an incredibly important first step towards that for control. Because it is the hardest use case, we have to get that absolutely right. Stacey Simms 10:49 Will that have share and follow? Is that something that you're working on for down the line? Or is that something that may come sooner? So really Elizabeth Gasser 10:56 good question. And we do recognize that share follow is incredibly important to our users and their families. Were continuing to look at where explicit share and follow capabilities for on our roadmap and what the best path to implementing that is, in large part because there's a diversity of CGM follow options out there, including our own Sugarmate application, which which can be used for blood glucose monitoring in a follow capacity. And so we don't have roadmap dates to share at this point in time, just know that we're sensitive to figuring out what the best possible implementation is for our customers here. And we want to make sure we're getting as much experience as we can, in the meantime, really understanding how to do good follow. And as I say, we're getting some of that through the Sugarmate app that we're operating, which actually just went live with the Dexcom real time API, right. And so there's a little complexity to thinking through what the best implementation model is. We're working on it and watch this space. Stacey Simms 12:00 Well, since you brought up Sugarmate, I have to ask with Sugarmate, which is if it's not clear, Tandem owns as you said, many people don't realize that is sugar beet, something that people could use, kind of as a bit of a workaround for a Tandem share and follow or Sugarmate only displays Dexcom data right now. Elizabeth Gasser 12:18 So today, sugar is explicitly a CGM companion application. It displays data from the Dexcom CGM. Over time we're looking at what features need to be added to that to ensure it delivers the best value proposition to our users. Really interesting Stacey Simms 12:33 stuff. All right, you segwayed beautifully into my question about Dexcom. How soon after Dexcom G7 is FDA approved, do anticipate it being available on the x two and again, is that a simple software update? Right back to our conversation, but first Diabetes Connections is brought to you by Dexcom. just about to talk about there. And one of the most common questions I get is about helping children become more independent. You know, those transitional times are very tricky elementary school to middle school middle to high school you get but I'm talking about using the Dexcom has made a big difference. For us. It is not all about sharing follow. I mean, that is very helpful. But think about how much easier it is for a middle schooler to just look at their Dexcom rather than do four to five finger sticks at school, or for a second grader to show their care team the number before Jim at one point, but he was up to 10 finger sticks a day and sometimes more and not having to do that makes his management a lot easier for him. It's also a lot easier to spot the trends and use the technology to give your kids more independence. Find out more at diabetes connections.com and click on the Dexcom logo. And now back to Liz I just asked about tandems planned integration of Dexcom G7 when it is approved and released. Elizabeth Gasser 13:53 We are intending to implement Dexcom G7 With both pump models so that means X2 and that means Mobi, down the road, our current goal, and this remains our goal is to deliver that within a quarter of FDA approval of the G7. And in terms of how they gets rolled out. I mean, it's very consistent with the software conversation we were just having right. The beauty of the software model is you know, as that gets approved, and as the implementation is ready, we'll be making it available to customers through a simple software update. Stacey Simms 14:26 Let's move on and talk about the December R&D presentation where this large plan, I think very ambitious and exciting was laid out for the next five years. And we've already mentioned a couple of the products. We're going to go through it in some more detail, but I am curious kind of, you know just what it was like that day and if you didn't see it or hear it, I can link up the video. I'm assuming that it's still up there. But I guess I'm asking this is what were you all talking about that day? There were so many people involved in the presentation, kind of doing handoffs and saying, here's the product, here's the software, here's the philosophy, it had to be a big deal. Tandem had to be a lot of relief when all the technology worked. And everybody got their presentations through with it. You were done. Elizabeth Gasser 15:07 Oh, absolutely. I couldn't agree more with that sense of it was momentous. And certainly at the end of it, we're all pretty tired. But no, it was, it was exhilarating, too. And I think, you know, we spend a lot of time because of because we're in a regulated space, we spend a lot of time talking day to day about the here and now the stuff that's approved, the stuff that's in market, and the reality is a lot of what we shared R&D day we've been working on for a while now. And you know, some of it's been skunkworks. Some of it's been more formal programs, you know, you just ticking along. And it was really exciting to have a vehicle to share a lot of that thinking and a lot of that innovation that we get to see day in day out. But we don't always get to tell the world about because of the rules and regulations in our space. Stacey Simms 15:59 Alright, let's talk about it as much as we can. You've mentioned Mobi several times, this had been referred to and I had been told this was not gonna be the name. So we didn't know that. But this had been formally referred to as T-Sport. Now, it is Tandem Mobi. Can you go through the features? Can you go through what this product is? Elizabeth Gasser 16:19 Absolutely. Where to start? First at it. It's the world's smallest durable pump. So if you're familiar with with the X2, it's half the size, that's really small, durable, four year lifespan hardware. So that in and of itself is exciting. In terms of where we go with the software on top of Mobi, it's going to support Control IQ. So same great algorithm that's in market today, it will be deployed on on both pumps in the same way. And so we get to bring that algorithm across the entire portfolio when Mobi launches, it will be controlled by phone as we were talking about earlier. And that means full control at this point in time, obviously, because there's no screen on the device itself. So what does that mean? Everything you need to do to interact with the pump settings, whether it's bolusing, whether it's looking at your statistics throughout the day, that will come from the phone, it will be charged inductively, which that you know, not something you don't really focus on. But that's that's pretty cool. With we're getting used to wireless charging for all of our consumer electronics devices not having to hunt around for a cord to plug it in. That's what we're doing with with Mobi as well. It'll sit on a little charging station, very easy, very straightforward, less pieces to worry about on pump bolus button. And this one we think is a little differentiated. Certainly in the on body arena, I think it will be the only one only pump out there of this size that has the option to fall back to a button push on the pump just to make sure because obviously, when you are interacting with your pump solely through a phone, we need to build in some measure of failsafe fallback, right if you find himself without the phone, and needs to bolus. And then lastly, waterproof. We're going to support waterproof capabilities through IPX8, which I think is pretty competitive. So lots of stuff packed into a really, really tiny device. Stacey Simms 18:25 I'm sorry, what is IPX? Eight mean? Elizabeth Gasser 18:28 The best way to articulate it, it's really just the standards we comply with and IPX eight means fully waterproof, you'll be able to swim and shower with it. Stacey Simms 18:36 One question about Mobi is I'm trying to visualize how it connects. My understanding is that it uses the standard pumping fusion set that like my son's Tslim currently uses, is that correct? It just sits closer to the body. Elizabeth Gasser 18:51 That is correct. The Mobi pump will work with the Tandem portfolio of infusion sets. And with the Mobi pump launch, we will also be introducing a shorter infusion set that four or five inches long, that allows for greater diversity of wear options. Stacey Simms 19:09 I'm so fascinated to see how this works because I'm a very visual person. So he could put it on like my son could put it on his arm and it kind of dangles off. Does it also stick to the body in a way? Or does it just kind of hang there on the tubing, the tiny tubing Elizabeth Gasser 19:24 work, we're working on the accessories to allow for a diversity of wear options, whether the belt clips or sleeves or a body worn adhesive patch through which you can that you can pop the pump into. So there's a variety of places you can push Stacey Simms 19:39 it interesting, alright. And like I said, I will link up so you can you can really dial down if you want to and see all of the features of everything we're going to talk about. But just for time limitations, we're not able to go through every single thing. Let's move on to the T slim x three that seemed to be next in the pipeline. What is that? Elizabeth Gasser 19:55 x three. That's the next iteration for the T slim X To pump. And really the focus there is to continue really honing the capabilities of the T slim form factor, right. And so we recognize that over time t slim continues to play a role in the portfolio, many of our users will continue to want a pump with a built in user interface. And so really the x three programs emphasis is on further developing the processor capabilities of that device, looking at battery life, looking at durability, reliability, looking at wireless software update capabilities, really to make sure that the T slim x two kind of line has continued vibrancy as part of the portfolio over time. And we're making the appropriate investments to support the diversity of software and user interfaces that we want to bring to the portfolio at large. So Stacey Simms 20:54 right now, it sounds like the changes you're talking about aren't something that, you know, I would look at the pump and say that is significantly different, right? Or that works completely did you've changed at all, it's making small improvements and things that the user, frankly, may not notice? Or will they're, you know, things will just run better, like you said battery life, that sort of thing. Are there significant changes that you could think of that would be coming to the pump itself? Elizabeth Gasser 21:16 Oh, no, that's absolutely right. I think this one's a little fun for me, because I come from the consumer electronics space, originally and spent 20 years you know, working on phones. And as you think about the types of releases, you do with consumer electronics, year to year, a lot of them are under the hood, that it's really focused on making it connect better, giving it more horsepower, making the battery last longer. And those things aren't always visible on the surface to a user, but may manifest through the quality of the user experience they get from interacting with that device. Stacey Simms 21:50 The next product is Mobi tubeless. We've talked about what Mobi is, I'm assuming this means know to tell me a little bit about Mobile tubeless. This is Elizabeth Gasser 22:01 a certain creativity and the naming convention there isn't so Stacey Simms 22:06 we shouldn't laugh. It's a very big deal. It's a very big deal. Elizabeth Gasser 22:09 No, I say that affectionately. And look, it's back to the conversation we were having on kind of the Mobi, shorter infusion set and different Bodywear options, more ways to air Mobi, right, we recognize that not everyone ultimately wants a pump with a tube. And so we've been pushing ourselves to say, okay, how can we improve the wearability and the wear option, so that we're reaching the broadest possible base of customers here. And, and this one's kind of an example of the things that we've had in the hopper for a while that not everyone gets to see, we took a little trip in the Wayback Machine and dusted off some of our earliest thinking on movie here. And maybe a tubeless infusion site option has been in our minds for a while. And so we felt it was the right time to bring that idea back to look at how to make it a reality as we get closer to the official launch of Mobi. And so this sits in the roadmap for Mobi as additional ways to utilize and engage with the product. And hopefully, it will give users choices, right? Some days, I don't want to wear my pump on my body, I might want to have it in my pocket and connect via a standard infusion site. Other days, I may be a little more active and find a really need to have a have a tubeless wear option, we get rid of the tube, the goal for us is to satisfy all of those use cases. Stacey Simms 23:34 And then the last one is the completely disposable patch pump that's in the pipeline. Is this a different form factor than Mobi? Is it a different design? Or is it similar? Elizabeth Gasser 23:44 So this is a different program? I can absolutely share that. I can't say a whole lot. This is one we want to keep fairly tight under wraps for competitive reasons. But the emphasis there is is very much on miniaturization. Got it. Can we really push the design envelope here on form factor for the device? Stacey Simms 24:06 You know, it's so interesting. We've been in this community as a family for 15 years. So now you're certainly not as long as many other people but in that time, we've seen and heard a lot of products, right? We've heard about new things coming. We've seen some really great advancements, we see things go away. This is a very ambitious portfolio that we're looking at and five years is it doesn't seem like a long time really certainly as I get older, it seems less than less. Seems everything's going more and more quickly. But a lot can happen in five years is the is the plan here that all of these products will exist together. As you said, you know, the movie tubeless you kind of made it sound like I might be able to take out my Tandem movie with the longer tube and then switch to the tubeless another day is the idea that all of these would exist side by side. Elizabeth Gasser 24:50 That's a great question, Stacey. I think the best way to answer that is to really reflect on the fact that we do fundamentally believe the day Diabetes space and particularly insulin dependent diabetes is a far more segmented market than every industry analysis would lead us to believe. You know, we often talk about type one and type two, as if those are the only segmentations that are relevant, we do actually think there's various needs, that we should appropriately be segmenting around, including, where preference form factor and user and interface size. And so as we look at the portfolio, we're really looking at how we can satisfy the broadest array of user needs. That may mean there is on occasion, some overlap in functionality between different products that sit in the mix. But the goal is really to provide the right device for the right group at the right time. And so as we think about where we go from here, the roadmap as we have sketched it out, for the 22 to 27 period really is very much about a tube pump offering with a screen, that's Tslim X2, a smaller form factor, more discreet phone operated screen, this option in the form of Mobi and there, the goal really is to create as diverse an array of wear options as we can to satisfy the needs of different user groups and their day to day activities, and then pass that as you think about the idea of a passionate disposable patch that exists as a third category that overtime will, we'll have to see how these different offerings play out with the segments that they're serving, and they are likely to coexist. Stacey Simms 26:39 So interesting. As we begin to kind of wrap this up, I did have a couple of questions from listeners I wanted to get to, and one of them was about control IQ, frankly, and any changes coming. In other words, we had heard a lot about changing the adjustable, changing the target rates lower than 160 and 180, that they are right now not the target rates. That's when the pump takes action, that kind of thing. And I remember hearing that there was something in front of the FDA, I don't know how much you can share. But can you talk to us about changes coming to control like you, yeah, happy to Elizabeth Gasser 27:09 talk about the design goals. In terms of control IQ today, it's delivering great outcomes. And in its current instantiation, I think one of the things that's helpful to understand about algorithms is that they're all going to work in different ways. It's like chocolate chip cookie recipes. If you think about it, lots of people have them, but it's how you put the pieces together and in what order and it's the secret sauce that affects how it tastes. Similarly, with algorithms, a lot of it comes down to how you put it together. And it's not always practical to compare from one to another. The real test is, you know, are you getting users to where they need to be in terms of, you know, being able to achieve their time and range goals, for example. So I think it's worth wrapping your head around that idea upfront. Now, having said that, for the control IQ roadmap, our next development frontier really is very much around personalization, and usability. While we're not going to get into very specific, you know, roadmap feature intersections at this time, we're exploring quite a bit here. And Jordan alluded to this a little bit in our R&D Day discussion, part of personalization for us does include exploring lower target ranges, and personalized target ranges, and looking at what it would take to deliver on those capabilities. Stacey Simms 28:32 Here's a real speculative question that I don't expect you to answer. I'm hearing in the DIY space, that more and more people are coming up with algorithms that don't need meal announcements, or don't even need meal boluses. Is that something that Tandem is working on for an algorithm? Or I guess the real personal question is, could you please Liz, help me because my son forgets to bolus for many meals. He's 17. He's very independent. But oh my gosh, when I see people working on things like that, I just feel like that would be life changing. Elizabeth Gasser 29:05 Yeah, mail handling unannounced meals on lounge consumption. Yeah, it's the hardest thing to confirm it with the algorithm here. It is fair to say that as part of our ongoing roadmap explorations, we are looking at what it means to improve unannounced meal handling. Stacey Simms 29:24 I'll take it. I'll take it. Thank you. Another question came up about new infusion sets. And you had mentioned this, you touched on this briefly, but we talked to folks at ConvaTec who make many of the infusion sets and they were talking about longer life improvements to the cannulas or those sorts of things coming to Tandem. Yeah, so we Elizabeth Gasser 29:46 did talk a little bit about our goals here. During R&D day. You know, it is only one piece of the system but we do recognize infusion set issues can be a real pain point for customers and so we have programs IPs that are ongoing. Some of them are internal driven by us. Some of them are in conjunction with our partners working on a diversity of things. Some of it is extended wear time, which we know is important. But we're also looking at insertion, ease and usability there, we're looking at how to reduce infusion site failures, specifically around occlusions, obviously continuing to look at things like adhesives, reduction of material waste. And so this one, it's a pretty diverse view that we're taking. It's not all necessarily anchored solely in the idea of extended wear, I can't give you any specific breaking news in terms of you know, what we're coming up with and the products we'd like to bring to market. But this one we're paying serious attention to, we recognize that our customers want to see progression here. Stacey Simms 30:57 Yeah, I have been amazed since day one of pumping, I feel like the infusion sets have, at least for us, and everybody is different. And everybody's skin is different. Everybody's insertion technique is different, which is part of the problem. But you know, I've just been amazed to me, that has always been the weakest link of pumping. And the idea that I'm using pretty much the exact same infusion set that I put on my son's body 15 years ago, just with all the advances that we've had to me, that's the one that needs much more attention. So I'm really, really glad to hear you're working on that. Alright, so this is not a question. But this was a thought that ran through many of the comments. Many people wanted to say, thank you for getting this is terrible. Thank you for getting control IQ through the FDA before COVID. Because oh my gosh, nothing has happened since like, this was approved, what December of 2019. And many people started getting it I think the earliest was January of 2020. And the diabetes community it feels like very little, although there have been there have been approvals. But it feels like everything is moving so slowly now. So I'm sure Tandem is happy about that. But I know the community as well. So I'm not sure if I can even ask you to answer. There's no question there. But thank you. Elizabeth Gasser 32:05 Oh, I'm not sure there's any good answers there either. Stacey, I certainly applaud the the yeoman's work going on at the FDA to manage through this crisis. And certainly while it's frustrating to have extended approval cycles, and yes, in retrospect, a blessing that we secured approval prior to COVID. I can't do anything but feel respect, admiration and a little bit of sympathy for our friends at the FDA. Yeah. And Stacey Simms 32:35 again, I don't know if you can answer something like this. Have you heard that they are they're kind of making their way through it just seems like there was such a log jam, I understandably so any feeling any word that they are kind of clearing the deck, so Elizabeth Gasser 32:47 to speak? I don't think it's my place to comment on my workflow there. I Unknown Speaker 32:50 tried. You can we do have good Elizabeth Gasser 32:52 back and forth with the FDA, you communicate with them regularly. And so they continue to engage with the industry constructively, productively. Stacey Simms 33:02 Alright, before I let you go, you don't live with diabetes, as you said at the very beginning, you know, you come from a software background and that sort of thing. But what is it like to come from that and work in in diabetes, where the work that you do I mean, here I am complaining about infusion sets, and, you know, change the bolus, from what you know, before it reaches 180? You know, we're talking about all of these little things add up to such quality of life issues for people, you know, what does it been like for you to work in this space? Elizabeth Gasser 33:28 That's a great question. It's one that I think you're the first person to ask me to reflect on. You know, I think it is both sobering and invigorating, sobering because, you know, when you come from a world that's, you know, focusing on clicks and engagement and eyeballs, and consumption of media, you can get lost in the little things, and really stepping back and recognizing just the enormity of what type 1 diabetes is, and the burden it places on people's lives, day to day, and feeling like I can show up to work and even in a little way, help with that. That's sobering and profoundly rewarding. It's also invigorating, because, you know, coming from a consumer electronics environment, you see what's possible with the technology as it exists today, and many of those technologies have not yet come to medical devices in a very fulsome way. And so I certainly get out of bed day in day out wondering how we can help therapy benefit from all of the innovation that is going on, in the consumer electronics world, right. You know, we have thermostats that manage our home temperature for us. We have self driving cars we have on demand consumption services that you know, help us get our groceries and plan our meals. I don't mean to trivialize the differences that are involved in translate I think that to medical devices, but I also think as you look at that and say, Come on, we should demand that level of ease of use in what we're doing here as well. And so that that's profoundly motivating. Stacey Simms 35:13 That's great. Well, thank you so much for sharing so much information for answering what you could answer. And I hope we talk again soon. My pleasure. Elizabeth Gasser 35:21 Thank you, Stacey. Stacey Simms 35:27 You're listening to Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms more information at diabetes connections.com, including the link to the research and development presentation. If you'd like to watch that or just listen to it, I will link that up over on the website along with the transcription. I really appreciate your patience with the transcriptions. I think we do a great job. But my transcription software doesn't speak diabetes, I try to teach it but it is a little unreliable. That way we go through and try to catch the big stuff. But if you do see anything egregious, or very confusing, please let me know. And I can pretty easily fix that. I want to take a moment and address a couple of the questions that we ran out of time with Tandem or your questions came in late. I'm going to do that in just a moment. But first, I mentioned at the beginning of the show that I had a question for healthcare providers, I have a question for you, I have a favor to ask of you. You may have heard me talk about Club 1921. I mentioned it right at the beginning of the show, I'm only talking about if you're at the end of some of the podcast episodes, and in the Facebook group, we are in beta. It is my new project. It's all about events in the diabetes community nationwide, any type of diabetes anywhere in the United States. I need your help, because it's very easy for me to find the big events, right friends for life, JDRF, even ADA stuff online. What I would like to add to the website, and what I think will be vital to its success are all of the events going on in your hospitals. Almost every hospital has a nutrition program for people with type two, an education program for gestational diabetes, things like that. They can be virtual, they can be in person, but I need to find those programs, I need to get into those hospitals, I need to reach the people who want to add those events. This is not a community calendar, where I hope a couple of groups post their events. And we all go from there. I want this to grow into a site where 1000s of people with diabetes, any type of diabetes, find their community find help find what's being offered. And I know that these hospitals want to connect with these folks. So if you could help me do that point me in the right directions to meet with the association's it doesn't have to be one on one with hospital systems, although that would be great, too. But whatever you think might be a help, I would really appreciate it, you can email me Stacey at diabetes connections.com, you can message me on social media, thank you so much, because this will only succeed if we reach out beyond the community that we are already talking to. So thanks. Okay, let's get to the kind of leftover questions from Tandem, the most common one had to do with international rollout. And I unfortunately, I don't really have any good answers for you. I'll tell you what Tandem said I asked specifically about Australia, I had two people who emailed me asking about what is going on in Australia with the rollout of Control, IQ, nevermind all these other features. And they just said we do not have an update at this time. And then asking about other international markets. So let me read that response in full Tandem says we have launched in a large majority of the international markets, and we're near to medium term focuses on ensuring we work to make our technology broadly available to these customers. We don't have anything to disclose with regard to additional markets at this time. So I know not the answer you were hoping for. I will keep asking on this one. And I do apologize, we are a very US centric podcast because I am US centric. But I appreciate the reminder. And I will try to keep that focused and you know on my list of questions as we move forward with lots of different technology this year. And then I had also asked them about changes to the current controller queue algorithm. I had asked during the interview if it could take action at a lower number than 160, which is where it jumps up to basil and 180 where it gives an auto bolus at 60% of the bolus rate that the person programs in and Liz did answer that question in the abstract, but I wish I had pushed on it. So I followed up because I thought I had heard that Tandem had already submitted a change on that to the FDA. They responded quote, as Liz mentioned in the interview, we are working on personalization features which include lower targets and thresholds. We've begun to engage the FDA and started our design work, but we're not currently providing any of the feature details and quote, I will add this editorial comment. Every pump company I talked to has started out saying we're going to have lower ranges, we're going to have tighter ranges, we're going to have customizable ranges and every time it hits the FDA that kind of starts to change set You know, Omnipod, if you'll go back and listen to the interviews from two or three years ago, they were going to submit with I think it was 80 to 100 as one of their ranges. And that didn't happen they've submitted with higher ranges, just like Tandem did. I think, again, this is my speculation, I think these will all gradually come down. But if you are looking now for tighter control with these hybrid closed loops, you might want to go the DIY route. Although if you keep your pump in sleep mode, you know you're sleeping beauties with Tandem it's trying to keep you at like one 12.5 The whole time you just have to remember to bolus which works beautifully for some people, and not at all for the person in my house. Okay, before I let you go quick look ahead. Of course in the news is every Wednesday we do that live on Facebook, and YouTube and I added LinkedIn this week. My goodness, we're also live on Instagram a little bit later, still can't do all of that at once we're working on it. And then I turned that into an audio podcast episode that is released on Fridays, upcoming longer format shows we'll cover more technology including a new pump called Sigi. We've also got some really interesting community interviews. What is it like right now when you live with type one, but you also live with another autoimmune condition that makes it very difficult to get a COVID vaccine. And I'm going to be talking to some of the Joslin medalists who are this is a theme right living longer with type one and the issues that have cropped up for them that nobody really far, we would have to think about so I'm excited about that and so much more. Thank you as always to my editor John Bukenas from audio editing solutions. Thank you so much for listening. I'm Stacey Simms. I'll see you back here soon until then, be kind to yourself.

Et si les Français acceptaient de cohabiter avec les Russes au Mali ? L'hypothèse n'est pas exclue, affirme le général Bruno Clément-Bollée. Cet officier français à la retraite a commandé l'opération Licorne en Côte d'Ivoire et la Coopération de sécurité et de défense au Quai d'Orsay. Aujourd'hui, il est consultant international en matière de sécurité en Afrique. Et il réagit au communiqué des quinze pays occidentaux qui, le 23 décembre 2021, ont dénoncé l'arrivée de mercenaires russes au Mali sans annoncer pour autant un retrait de ce pays. Il répond aux questions de Christophe Boisbouvier. RFI : La France affirme que le groupe Wagner a entamé le déploiement de mercenaires russes à Bamako. Le Mali dément formellement, alors qui a raison ? Général Bruno Clément-Bollée : Qui a raison, qui a tort, je ne sais pas. On avait noté quand même des signes sur le terrain. Je crois que la seule certitude aujourd'hui, c'est que des Russes vont arriver. Qui sont-ils ? Des coopérants militaires à l'image un petit peu des nôtres, de ceux que nous avons un petit peu partout en Afrique. Ou est-ce que ce sont des mercenaires de Wagner ? Je crois qu'à ce stade, je ne sais pas qui peut affirmer la vérité. Certains auraient reconnu des cadres de Wagner présents à Bamako, je ne sais pas ce qu'il en est. En Centrafrique, suite au départ des Français de Sangaris il y a cinq ans, les Russes de Wagner sont arrivés. Et ce sont eux, qui, il y a un an, ont sauvé le régime du président élu Faustin Archange Touadéra contre les rebelles de François Bozizé. Ne jouent-ils pas quelquefois un rôle positif ? Alors, on pourrait parler de la situation politique et sécuritaire en Centrafrique. Si vous estimez que la situation y est stable, alors effectivement, tout est permis pour le Mali. Je crois qu'on en est très très loin. Je note surtout qu'en Centrafrique, il y a une mission européenne à l'image de Takuba au Mali, qui vise à former des contingents centrafricains. Et, depuis que ces contingents ont été utilisés par Wagner, l'EUTM a arrêté sa formation. Aujourd'hui, finalement, la Centrafrique est un peu livrée à elle-même, et livrée à Wagner et un peu isolée au plan international. J'ai peur que ce soit un petit peu la même chose qui arrive au Mali. Le Mali souverain cherche à élargir son partenariat de sécurité et de défense, mais j'ai peur que ce soit un calcul à très très court terme. Au lieu de l'élargir, cela va plutôt le réduire. Si les Français de Sangaris n'étaient pas partis de Centrafrique il y a cinq ans, les Russes de Wagner seraient-ils arrivés ? Je ne sais pas répondre à cette question. Je note tout comme vous que c'est le retrait de Sangaris, qui finalement semble avoir permis l'arrivée des Russes. On n'est pas du tout dans le même schéma au Mali, puisque nous sommes encore très présents, nous, la France, au sein d'une coalition internationale importante, si on y ajoute la Minusma, les dix pays européens de Takuba, la force G5, ce qui n'existe pas en Centrafrique. La comparaison trouve très vite ses limites entre la Centrafrique et le Mali. Les Russes arrivent au Sahel au moment où les Français y sont de plus en plus contestés, comme le montrent les dernières manifestations au Burkina et au Niger, au passage du dernier convoi de ravitaillement de Barkhane. Cela sonne-t-il le glas d'une présence militaire française au Sahel ? Je ne crois pas que ça sonne le glas d'une présence militaire française. Je crois que ça nous montre la sagesse de la décision qui est de ne plus se mettre en première ligne, mais d'être moins visible, d'agir dans une configuration internationale. D'autant qu'il faut aussi admettre que derrière ces contestations, cette image dégradée, il y a quand même de sournoises manœuvres, dont on sait qui a les manettes, qui visent à dégrader l'image. Pensez-vous les mercenaires et paramilitaires de Wagner capables de repousser la menace jihadiste au Nord Mali ? C'est, je crois, la question qu'il faut vraiment se poser. Ce n'est pas avec 1000 mercenaires qui vont être isolés … Quand la force Barkhane était avec ses 5000 soldats, elle agissait au sein d'une coalition internationale beaucoup plus importante, avec entre 35 et 40 000 hommes. Là, on parle de 1000 soldats russes ou 1000 mercenaires qui vont être isolés, qui vont travailler avec les forces armées maliennes, j'imagine. Mais tout ce beau monde sera livré à lui-même. En termes d'efficacité, ce sera extrêmement difficile pour eux de tenir le terrain, ce sera quasiment même impossible. Ensuite, en Centrafrique, la société Wagner a montré à quel type de règles d'engagement elle obéissait ; et cette force s'est quand même illustrée par des exactions qui ont été pointées. On parle de plus de 200 exactions dans l'année. Ça fait quand même beaucoup. N'y-a-t-il pas des risques d'exactions aussi au Mali, certainement. Il y a des risques de tensions exacerbées. On peut se demander quelles vont être les réactions des communautés du nord en cas d'exactions, quelles vont-être les réactions de la population. Tout cela ne va pas concourir à redorer le blason de l'image des forces armées maliennes, si en plus elles s'affichent avec une force de mercenaires qui se comporte de la sorte. La junte au pouvoir à Bamako fait-elle appel à Wagner pour lutter contre les jihadistes ou pour se protéger elle-même ? On voit bien que la junte cherche à s'affranchir des règles que veut lui imposer la communauté internationale. Elle cherche à se maintenir, et finalement, c'est plus facile avec un partenaire qui ne vous demande pas de comptes politiques, face à une communauté internationale beaucoup plus exigeante sur ce plan. Mais on peut rajouter, derrière tout cela, que ce ne sera pas cadeau. Il y a quand même un prix à payer. On parlait de 10 millions de dollars par mois et la présence de géologues russes, à la recherche de gisements aurifères, et là aussi, ça nous ramène à la Centrafrique pour pouvoir régler l'addition. Si c'est pareil au Mali, je ne pense pas que le Mali, vu l'état économique du pays, ait besoin de telles choses. Il y a un mois, les autorités françaises disaient que la présence de Wagner au Mali serait « incompatible » avec le maintien des Français au Mali. Mais aujourd'hui, concrètement, si Wagner débarque à Bamako, les Français vont-ils fermer leur base de Gao ? Je note que dans cette déclaration officielle de ces 15 pays, dont la France, on condamne, mais sans menacer de retrait. On n'en parle plus. On a l'impression qu'il y a une inflexion en effet dans le discours des Français ? En tout cas, on ne parle plus de retrait. Je crois que l'engagement français est toujours d'actualité, plus que jamais. Il cherche à s'adapter : on constate une présence moins visible, qui agit dans une configuration beaucoup plus internationale, donc moins en première ligne, en mettant plutôt en avant les contingents africains locaux. On sait bien aujourd'hui que la situation au Sahel ne pourra être réglée in fine que par les Sahéliens. Il faut une réponse sahélienne à une situation sahélienne, bien évidemment accompagnée par les alliés traditionnels. Donc, je crois que la présence française perdurera au Sahel, il n'y aura certainement pas de retrait. Finalement, les Français et les Russes ne vont-ils pas cohabiter au Mali ? N'est-ce pas l'espoir secret de la junte au pouvoir à Bamako ? C'est peut-être une possibilité. Si ce sont des coopérants militaires russes, après tout, le Mali est souverain, il a tout à fait le droit de faire appel aux partenaires qu'il souhaite. Dans ce cas-là, pourquoi n'imaginerait-on pas une cohabitation entre les militaires formateurs russes qui formeraient les contingents maliens, au même titre que la force Takuba continuerait son effort de formation vis-à-vis des contingents maliens et autres sahéliens ? Une cohabitation entre soldats français de Barkhane et mercenaires russes de Wagner est-elle possible ? Là, certainement pas. Je crois que, s'il y a confirmation de Wagner, on est au pied du mur. Il y aura une décision collective à prendre pour poursuivre ou non l'engagement. Les autorités maliennes le savent, et je pense que l'insistance avec laquelle les autorités maliennes démentent le fait que ce soit Wagner, mais affirment que c'est un contingent de coopérants militaires russes, prouve bien que les autorités maliennes cherchent quand même à ménager une présence internationale, dont le contingent français. ► À lire aussi : Wagner: l'annonce de quinze partenaires internationaux fait réagir
HOUR 2: DA questions how we can evaluate Baker Mayfield's tenure with the Cleveland Browns and is he their future. It's “Trash Tuesday” and Kevin Wall goes after Jon Bon Jovi and his Patriots fandom. Will the Cincinnati Bearcats decide the G5's future? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Kirk Herbstreit and Matt Barrie discuss the COVID-19 situation in college football, the Cincinnati's mindset going into the semifinal, how Bryce Young can hurt the Cincinnati secondary, the Bearcats leaning on Jerome Ford's experience and fear of G5 teams getting a bad rap. Then, they get into if Michigan still has an edge after beating Ohio State and winning the Big Ten, and if Georgia will take advantage of its second change. Plus, Why We Love This Sport.
Our model shows how hard it is to predict when a good G5 plays a good P5. We try to tackle the unknown with how Alabama will match up against these Cincy corners without John Metchie. Will Jerome Ford and this Cincinnati running game get going against an elite rush defense? Who wins the battle of the QBs in Desmond Ridder and Bryce Young?
