China Sanctions Wilbur Ross and Others, Responding to Hong Kong Warnings
"Fresh sanctions on a handful of US individuals. It's retaliation for sanctions the bite and administration imposed on Chinese officials last week. Over Beijing's crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong. Its latest attack comes just days before a visit to China by Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and US China ties are already tense, though, as NPR's John Ruit reports there is no sign China's sanctions will derail the visit. Sanctions are the first imposed by China under a new law passed in June, which facilitates retaliation for foreign sanctions. Among those it hits a former Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, and the China director at Human Rights Watch Sophie Richardson. For years, Beijing's responded to US sanctions and tariffs with tit for tat measures in Beijing's calculation, it had to respond to the US Bonnie Lynn, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, says doing so before Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman's trip makes sense would disappear better if it happened a couple days after Deputy Secretary Sherman's trip that she says might risk being interpreted as a signal that the meeting didn't go well. And Sherman will be the most senior U. S official to travel to China since President Biden took office. Relations are at their worst in decades. But there's speculation that the trip could start to lay the groundwork for a meeting sometime this year between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping. There is a desire to be able to showcase that the two world leaders can work together and part of that is being able to meet and discuss issues they agree on as well as those where they have differences, and I really hope As we see more of these incidents is on either side that they won't derail progress towards the usual meeting because both sides, she says, have significant incentives for Biden and she to meet sooner rather than later.

When within our relationship was actually to get vulnerable it was to connect to myself honestly and admit how i was feeling and it is to share that with you

"a. tense" Discussed on Axios Today
"We've made it friday. i'm nyla budi. We continue our coverage of this historic quick. China's doubling down on its anti democracy efforts and understanding cunanan's role in wednesday's insurrection. Yesterday president-elect biden was among those who said that wednesday's police response was much less aggressive than at last year's racial justice protests. No one can tell me that has been a group of black lives matter protesting yesterday. There wouldn't have been. They wouldn't have been treated very very differently. The mob of thugs that storm the capital. Meanwhile calls for president trump to be impeached to remove the the twenty fifth amendment continued among democrats and some republicans and numerous officials. In trump world resigned. Two of the most high-profile include education secretary. Betsy devos and labor secretary elaine. Chao who said the riot had deeply troubled her. she's married to senate majority leader. Mitch mcconnell will wednesdays events. Change everything about american politics or will we look back and realize nothing really changed. That's a pretty big question and whenever there are very big questions. I like to talk to jim. Van high. he's the ceo of axios one of its co-founders. Good morning jim. Good morning big picture. Can i ask you. I just what your sense of this moment is like do you see this as a watergate moment that will be a clearer demarcation line in american history. Certainly something changed. I think there's a sub segment of the republican party. That realized enough is enough. Question is is it enough. Were republicans repudiate was some lasting effect both donald trump in the politics of donald trump. And i think that's an open question because only hours after you had people storm in the us capital and take it over. You still had sixty percent of house. Republicans take the extraordinary step of trying to invalidate. The election of joe biden is not that much changed at least in the moment. What should we expect from. Joe biden and the democrats now that they control both houses of congress in the white house but i think joe biden has had pretty much the exact same plan for a year in rarely modifies it. And i don't think it's going to modify it much because of what happened in the last forty eight hours listen. He's going to be in constant conflict inside his own party. Because i think the vast majority of the democratic party is way to the left of. Joe biden's instincts. So where do we go from here. Listen i think we still have a hell of a ten twelve days ahead of us in then the hard work begins. This is not going to be. Joe biden fifth project. This is going to be something that if the media doesn't get it right if joe biden doesn't get it right if ceo's don't step up and take an even bigger role with their employees and in their community and with her companies if you don't have education leaders if you don't have everybody's stepping in locking arms to say what the hell did we do. How did we get here. And how do we fix it or we're going to continue to be bedevilled by these same problems. There's just a lot to overcome. And i've always felt like it's gonna be a longer slog than most people think axios. Ceo jovana. hi. Thanks jim thank you. We'll be back in.

"You narrative side go by vanna. Tom going to talk about this. Because i actually think. Mount made the wrong option interesting. I was watching the kind of move. Fold it was really crowded down that side. Yes i mean. There were huge amount of players. That bay was more crowded along the left hand side than the right And i actually wondered that the way this defense was set if gone to he was obviously miles on saw. He had a good two yards. So sorry i think Would have been dire- i think sense about I wonder if that had been the move. Because i think the spurs defence kind of look like they started to shift towards gate expecting to get it just wonder as as the played out spacing wise. It looked like he was actually a better option. And it's tiny tiny tiny Lodge of course. I could have been the difference because by the time he released a fan of anna was off side and it wasn't he was he's well off side. Although the finish was amazing gorgeous. Finish ship lovely lovely finish. I think z. Acquis actually the eruption there wonder about with that stuff. Obviously he's played with verna molding. He's played with mount. Sorry then a morton's yet. So i wonder there's times new dislike on counter you more natural for just because it's your to like speed heated moment. Bang bang bang oldest coach team. Oh because i know what he does. I just wanted that some of the over the course of the game because it sound like tiago silva for example now looking supremely comfortable you know of a c dot west brom surreal. Shame to us from their first. Win against Jeff not a real shame to west brom because they haven't quite capetown from that she best off against chelsea whereas in a funny way chelsea kind of have and tiago silva pretty much since then is required short yemen.

"Car door. And then they would There's there's probably about two hundred to. It's kind of far out in the parking lot, and so they've got a long walk, so they've got to think through some things and I. Don't know in my head I. Start narrowing down to all of the things that are happening in present tense in real time. That's one of the traps I've run into in writing present tense. Describing a bunch of Shit. You don't need. Yeah. It kind of has that similarity to like those very flashy shots and movies where it's one continuous take for like fifteen minutes. And that's very cool when it's done right like that can be a very like. Wow, this is really exciting. I just realized that the camera has not cut for less ten minutes, but there there is also this thing of like you're committing to that. If your characters downstairs and they need to get upstairs that you are, we are going to watch that character. Climb the stairs. because there's no way to to cut that bit without without losing the technique. Although I think present tense. That is a trap you can avoid because present tense doesn't necessarily mean you have to go real time. Right like bright. You can be like I got out of my car. I walked into the store like that can be two sentences right next to each other. You can have that time jump. And still have immediacy of present tense. Yeah, that's probably just my brain starting to work on present tense, she's like well. Let's describe everything that's happening right now. In this very moment, there's a little bit about A. So much suspense. Works on foreshadowing are works on the knowledge that. Something else could have happened later and so in telling in past tense, you can play with time a little bit more. In present tense. It's less. It's more difficult to make that to make foreshadowing happen to kind of give the characters a perspective of time telling something in present tense. Those characters don't have the idea of saying yeah I. I made a choice years later I am regretting it. It just, doesn't you? It's just hard to do it without changing completely back out, so you have very little perspective of future time. When told him in presidents? I do want to point out. Just one notable. Kind of exception to that. which is an interesting use of the present tense to? Mess with the way time works. which is doctor Manhattan in watchman, both the TV for the recent version, which is excellent and the graphic novel I of course is. The use of the narrative of I am standing here. It is nineteen fifty. I am in a bar. It is twenty twenty like. Everything. Dr Manhattan says in present tense, and yet it moves around through passed in the future, and in this way it it just you know Allen more in the in the graphic novel, and then the writers TV show us that technique to intentionally mess with your sense of how time works. That's a great place to stop for a second and we'll take a break. We'll come back and we'll give you a couple of assignments. And we're back with your assignments Let me give you your consume assignment. The Sepah sewed your assignment to consume is the short story girls at play by selecting? Heads, up that the story deals with teen sexuality and Peer Pressure in a pretty intense way, so in girls at play, the narration is entirely in present tense early on the present tense verbs give a universality to the action, not that it is necessarily happening at this moment, but these actions are sort of always happening, but as the story unfolds the present tense verbs create. Create an unknown element the story is pressed right up against time, and without any past tense verbs we're left with this uncertainty as to the futures of any of these characters, and not just the far future, but the tension of what is going to happen moments from now, so that's girls at play by the author soliciting will leave a link in the show notes. For your create, you are going to write in the present. You're going to write a two hundred four hundred word story about a chase. This could be a car. Chase a hunting expedition, a of tack, whatever that means to you whatever level of life or death steaks or playful stakes, you WANNA, give it your main character whether they are chaser, or the chased makes a choice in your story. Story that changes the dynamic of the chase, and your last line is a cliffhanger, a tease for the next part of this chase now that dynamic has shifted, so be sure to use only active voice and present tense to describe some sort of chase, in which the main character with it they are chasing. Our Chase makes a choice that changes the dynamic of that chase. Good luck out there. So many sounds in that sentence. That was great fantastic work.

"About that technique. They're going to have to be like. Oh, the correct way to stand when I do this. Is this so i? Should just make sure my feet are like this like they're going to have to think through that, but eventually like. If you learn that stuff enough, it just becomes ingrained so that. Like at this point as like as a writer when you're like just wanted, you can instead of having to think the technique you hit a point where you've learned enough technique that you can be like. I just wanted to feel like this. And your brain supplies the technique needed. And maybe Ben's it where needed, but yeah, I do think it's worth having that that basis of understanding technique and learning it and thinking about it for a while, because you will eventually reach that place where it's just in your body, and you don't have to think about it anymore. I think it's you know. Go back to cooking metaphors, right? It's the idea of of the president. I eat the pizza and present continuous. I am eating the pizzas very similar to the difference between. Regular Kale and Dinosaur Kale right like inherently they taste almost identically but they're physically very different, so they behave differently in a salad, or if you cook them or doing whatever with them. If you'RE GONNA, make Kale chips. The curly Kale is much better because it holds all the spices on it. You Start Learning these little subtle differences, even though they're basically the exact same food. And I think it's the same thing as you were just saying with writing, which is just getting to the wants saying I eat the pizza describes it very subtly different amount of time of slice of time than I am eating the pizza it just it implies a slightly different thing and I think getting into those nuances. Don't spend a whole bunch of time analyzing the sentence I eat the pizza on the show, but I think just the point that I was making doing that. It's just playing around with with all these verb tenses I think can start giving you a better sense of what's the right ingredients for this dish that you're making for the right spice that you wanted this moment of something like that. Also got into a thing which is kind of in your writing one a one, which is active versus passive voice and It's funny, because for so long I, sort of passive voice as anytime you use the continuous tents of present or past, progressive, tense as opposed to just like simple or simple past, but it really has it has to do with the verb than it has to do with the subject of your sentence. The hunter shoots. The deer is active, versus the deer was shot by a hunter. Those sentences express the exact same action. But they're two entirely different. Different visuals so I. Think in writing just wanted to point back point that back out. If I'm going to bring up I'm eating the pizza. is still inactive active statement. Even though the pizza was eaten by me is a super passive statement. It's just a matter of the Vir- or the subject of your sentences. Just is the thing that should be doing the action. Just a reminder. Yeah, I, mean it it right. We are right now getting kind of a very visceral lesson in active and passive voice with. The discussion of how the media writes about police shootings. You almost never see a media article about the police about police shootings. That doesn't read something like man dies after shots fired in police incident. There's this roundabout way. That pacify sort of let's things off the hook and you never see an article about an armed robbery where it's like. Family dies after armed robber incident in which shots were fired like the you would never see a headline like that, and so thinking about what gets written about impassive, and what's gets written about inactive your? We're getting kind of a visceral lesson in what those those mean! If, you're in any type of institution that writes that were you are a writer whether you work for a news room or whether. You work in a writer's room whether you are a technical writer at a a firm or corporation. The principal job of your editor of the person who oversees that and the of your training has always been active voice. It is always to make things the most clear. So yeah, so the passive versus active I threw in there because. Like you have have been watching that unfold in the journalism world recently, and it's I think if you're you're very well trained in all of this, you have to go out of your way to use passive voice in those ways, because are so many people who see your work, and who edit your work, and who have commentary on your work, and that is one of the default things you always come back to when you're writing alone. As a fiction writer it can be hard to remember the point of active versus passive because you don't have a squadron of people around you to make sure that you're writing is doing what it's supposed to be doing. And that gets back to the idea of. It's all about agency. What choices being made? What action is being taken? The subject of your sentence is the person who is having these responses. Who is making these actions in these choices? Can we talk about some of the challenges of the limitations of present tense I mean to me. It all comes down to time the amount of time that. You're able to express. Yeah I mean it's. It comes down to a similar thing as In our episode about second person, discussing the limitations of second person I think they're really similar. Which is one? It is a noticeable technique and noticeable techniques always have a risk because anytime. You know there. There's there's that kind of truism probably can be attributed to some writer but I'm not sure which one idea that like the best writing is not even noticeable as writing that the best writing disappears, and that any writing that the reader notices is inherently bad. Bad I think that's wrong. I think there's lots of great writing that you notice. I think that's sort of the entire basis of poetry is it's great writing? That calls attention to itself, but doing that does run this risk of you are putting something between the reader and story, which is technique, and so you just have to be sure that's the technique that you WANNA use. You're using it well, or it becomes an obstacle, and then also like second person. Present tense does have these limitations in time that that by placing it in the present, you really limit your ability to discuss the pass, and you obviously really limit your ability to discuss the future. The future kind of doesn't exist, and the past rarely exists. It's kind of all about that moment, and that can really work well. Like any limitation you can use that to your advantage, but it is limitation. You have to be very sure that that's what you want before you go into it. I think about what makes present tense so compelling, which is the immediacy which is the idea that the that it draws your attention? It can also as we talked about with action. Make it more suspenseful. Make it more like I'm not sure what's about to happen next, but there's also when used in a more longer form writing when you use present tense, there's the Manetti of real time. I think you were speaking earlier about as you as a creator as you're writing something. Sometimes, your mind switches from past present tense as writing, because the tension is notched up in your mind for your scene, so your mind starts making it present tense because it's it's full of action and excitement. But when you're trying to maintain that that present tense, sometimes, your tendency is to tell it in real time. I know I do this. This is one of the things I fall back on. Not Fall back on, but accidentally do in in writing present tense, which is just start describing everything that's happening and we don't need everything that's happening, but it's more just like realistically they would When they got out of the car. They would shut the door and then they would lock the.

"Feels like everything is more important more immediate, but it also to me sometimes feels like a slows down time a little bit because you get to focus on every little detail when speaking at present tense. In. That might come from again. Presents gives I mean. especially in fiction, it could always turn out any way, but. Present tense gives the illusion that things are more dangerous that there's more uncertainty about what's going to happen next. Again because I think it replicates how we feel in our lives where the things in the past we know how they turned out, but this present moment we never know. And so because the scene could turn out any way I think those details get heightened for us. We will take on more importance because we're looking for a clue on how things are going to turn out. It's interesting. Sometimes just to conversational storytelling. Conversation is absence of one hundred percent present tense, because we're talking in the moment, but sometimes if I'm if you and I are talking and I might tell you a story about something that happened to me once. It's interesting that rather than I could say. You know I'm waiting for you know. I'm waiting in line at the cashier at the grocery store and this. And this rhino just suddenly charges through the aisles. So shifting it into present tense, like I am waiting in line at the cashier at the grocery store, and this rhino charges through the front doors and down the aisles. It's really interesting to tell you a story that happens in past tense, but to make it in present tense because I want to heighten the significance I wanNA. Place you there and puts you in in what's happening. We talk a lot about been talking so much about action for present tense, but we use it for for a lot else to times. It's just a matter of shifting the tone of what's happening. I think you know something about. Shifting into a dream or a different state of imagining something to take the reader out of story, to to let you know that I in a different place. Maybe I'm in a dream sequence. Maybe I'm in a different mine mindset about what's happening so instead of saying you know talking about I think I thought about my retirement plan, and then suddenly I'm thinking about being the fair I'm thinking about being on a roller coaster, but at the time when I thought about my retirement plan, I was just bordon in a state of daydreams, so it's just like switching into present tense. Just let you know into different state of mind here. Rather than something. That's actionable. Also in generalities, I think it's where we go. I was reading Ted Chiang his short story. Exultation is told is a sci Fi story told him in past tense, but throughout it in telling the story in past tense kind of in this future world of people who have replaceable lungs. He constantly refers to the action in past tense, but then he he constantly jumps into present tense to state generalities. When he says like when we talk about air or as well refer to it as are gone. We talk about air. We know the following things in this case, it wasn't true, and then he jumps back into the past. He jumps into the present to tell generalities of what he believes or what we all believe, what we all know is true, or what is kind of the general thought process now, but in the sense of the story I'm going to jump back into the in the past tense, and those generalities tend to be in present tense because their general. They're always happening. It's can be used as a world building thing. It's his way of connecting where the reader is to where where the character is You know if. They arrive in. I'm trying to think of a city. That's especially confusing for a newcomer Portland Oregon if your character. Derived, Portland, Oregon Portland Oregon is a confusing place for newcomer. There's that element of switching because Portland isn't a was and this. This thing you're describing still exists. In that same way, so it kind of connects the world if the reader and and the world of the character. Portland Oregon by the way is. Not a great place it might. Maybe they fix this but GPS is just. Don't work in Portland Oregon. That is right. It's Portland Oregon we traveled there. The the GPS has never seen to work in Portland nor in downtown. Chicago when you get under, is it Wabash? Yeah, GPS is just have trouble with layers and Portland and Chicago Chicago less than Portland. Portland has a lot of this. Because just a lot of streets on top of streets on like bridges and the bridge above the bridge, and the GPO has no idea which level you're on gets very confused. I definitely do not. have a lot of faith in the driverless car. Because living in Brooklyn for so long GPS could never tell the difference between the BIKI and Third Avenue. Some terrified as to what a driverless car would do. Going seventy miles per hour. It's like well on the Peking. Yup, you're on the thinks you're on third avenue, and it just takes a sudden right hand. Turn on the forty Fifth Street. I wanted to just do a quick grammar reminder because I did this for myself and I just. I don't know. I just thought it was just interesting to insert this here so. When we talk about present tense, there's. Really just like four versions of present tense present is I. Eat the Pizza which is saying what you're doing right now. there's present continuous or president progressive, which is I am eating the pizza? I am currently doing that thing present perfect I have eaten the pizza president. Perfect progressive I have been eating the pizza. And then there's this idea of present imperfect, which is saying like I eat pizza. Certain quoting Michael Jordan I don't know if you saw the last dance, but there's a really hilarious sequence wherein they tell the story about a Utah Pizzeria when they were in the finals against the Jazz Utah. Pizzeria brought pizza for Michael Jordan and Michael Jordan didn't want anyone else to eat it, and so he just aided himself, and he says in the documentary I the pizza. I just thought it was really great, because he demanded that no one else touches pizza. He aided himself and then he got food poisoning. This is a very exciting. So yes, I was just thinking about. I just went down this this mental activity of thinking about like what the difference between present and present continuous was the idea of i. eat the pizza versus I am eating the pizza and present continuous always looks on the page like when you have I am doing i. Am Verb Ing. It feels more passive to me. It feels less telling of what's going on. But in actuality it's it's more active in the sense that this is happening right now whereas I eat the pizza that present. That the simple present, tense kind of gives you a broader range stretches time out wider like I eat like I could be eating it now, but I also just in general I am eating. I eat the pizza. Yet this time just stretches. I don't know it's just really interesting when dive down into like. Verb tense of like we have a million different verb tenses in the English, language, and they all just kind of express a different stretch of time. And this actually gets into a point that is not directly related to the subject of this episode, but it is sort of related to a lot of the subjects of a lot of these episodes. Which is I I? Do think you know there's a lot of technical grammar stuff in writing and. I do think it's worth learning I'm very much not a prescriptive Est.. and I am all for kind of inventing new ways to put language together, but there is something very beneficial about understanding. That stuff. Yeah, it gives you. It gets to a point. You know similar to like I duNno, like an an athlete, really learning the technique of how to do something and for the first several years. They're gonNA have to think.

"The future in the pastor both infinite, the future has no in in the past. No beginning we rarely tell stories in future tense, but it's a possibility in fact, storytelling, using the future tense I would be nothing but possibilities, most fiction, writing or storytelling in general happens in the past once upon a time. Seeing are fictional narrative as having already happened allows us as writers of they certainly a sense that there was closure at some point that we know everything that's about to happen as writers, we should have certainty in our stories regardless of verb tense, but there's a deeply psychological advantage to writing past tense writing in present tense, though makes everything immediate unlike the past or the future, the present barely exists. Emotionally speaking, what is happening in the here and now is so impactful and important, even if the feeling is fleeting, and so when we right in the present tense, we imbue our stories that immediacy lacing significance in every action. No matter how small. I'm Jeffrey Craner here with Joseph Fink. We will have been talking about this right now. Hi, Joseph Hi, I am speaking to you, and and in this moment it's left forty two am. Hello Hello So we had a previous talk about a second person and Present tense is another topic that kind of comes into a similar feel of of V. creates a a sort of immediacy I believe in in. It's a technique that is. Used more often than we think it is, but in terms of like actionable, present tense, it doesn't get US super. Often it's it's used mostly sparingly rarely for the entirety of a story, but in in the sense of using present tense storytelling. Like what kind of story do you tell using present tense verbs? It's an interesting question. present tense does give A. Sense of momentum. That doesn't exist in past tense past tense is kind of has a sense of a history. I am giving you the history of what happened whereas present tense feels more immediate. It feels more direct. Does more of a sense that things can go wrong. I think which may be an illusion, but there's the sense of. If it happened in the past the maybe it okay, because it was back then whereas the present tense gives us the feeling like we're living in the present moment, which is we never know what's going to happen next and kind of anything had happened, so there is. It feels faster. It feels more immediate, but it also you know we. We spoke about this per second person. It is because it is more unusual. It does call attention to itself, and so you do kind of run a higher risk of of taking people out of the story because you're. You're using a technique that calls attention to itself to thinks second person works better in in some genres like when I was writing out notes for this. One of the examples in my head of how I might use present tense in writing might be in like say like a bank heist or a like a crime caper or something that was action related in that genre, only because it feels like it builds so much suspense, or is it something where in? Every novel has suspense whether there's stealing of money involved or not that you can that present tense able to narrow down on that. I think it just works when you need that momentum when you want things to feel fast in a way. This is an interesting thing I was thinking about here is one. One thing I often have to catch an editing is when I'm writing a rough draft and I'm really just going with the flow and typing without thinking too hard about it one if I get to a scene where things are moving quickly, or there's like action, are just it's a fast seen, even if the story is in is in past tense start writing and presents without thinking about it, and then I have to go back and correct all that, but it is just like a thing. My brain will just slip into writing in present tense. Sometimes, it feels like the momentum is not for just. Something in my brain switches, and it's just like Oh. This feels like present tense go. And so yeah I think there's sort of almost an instinctive understanding of what. Feel. What present tense feels like that? It feels faster than past tense. I think that's really interesting. The that's what your mind does to you as your as your writing that it immediately starts changing your verb tense that the action and the suspense is so heightened in your own head that it does that it in that way, it almost present tense almost feels like it's There's something improvised feeling about the storytelling. Once you switch into present tense, because now it. It feels like I'm watching improvisers create a story. Because I don't know what's going to happen next, not the comfort of feeling like Oh. I feel like this is built on a rock. Solid Foundation of having already happened that at any moment, something could go wrong or right. which in that way? An interesting thing about presents then is, it may be almost replicates the writing process better than than than past tents because that might be why I slip into present tense mean all writing is is essentially improvisation until yet it you know your, I pass it is just you tossing ideas out and seeing how they land, and so you know for for pieces of the story that are more carefully constructed it to do past tense because it feels a little bit more like laying. Laying bricks of just like okay. This is the foundation for this thing that will happen next so I just need to put these bricks in here and past tense makes sense for that kind of foundation building, but those it is those moments like action scenes like this where in an action scene, it doesn't necessarily make a plot difference exactly how the action goes, so there's definitely a little were improvisation. Even if you have outlined, does definitely a good amount of improvisation in the rough draft writing of. Be Cool if happened, be cool if she grabbed a rope and swim and swung out this way and then landed over here. So I, do think maybe your brain slip switches into that improv mode of just like this is what I'm doing I'm just sort of making up stuff on the fly, and some just going to switch to present tense for that. It just started thinking about the I'm going to get the scene kind of wrong. CAS just now thought of it. which is the as you were talking about that? Which is the? Did you ever see reservoir dogs? A long time ago I don't remember it great. I hate to be the forty something white male who likes talking about writing who brings up reservoir dogs, but that's what I'm going to be right now. which is. I think for me. The the scene that makes that movie for me is Tim Roth's character. Going undercover into the Mafia offit. And he has to learn how to tell a story. He has to learn how to. Tell a story that kind of ingratiates him to the rest of this this gang and As? He's being taught. How to tell the story, it's basically just an acting workshop like just him on a roof with another cop who's kind of walking them through that and Tim Roth starts telling the story, and as he's telling the story, the scene shifts to where he still telling the story directly to the camera as the whole scene is acting out where he's also talking to. The people in this gang so like time shifts in this weird way and I was just thinking about like the present tense kind of does that it just lets the audience know of like. Hey, these two things overlap I've been past tense now and now I've shifted into present tense. So that that I just needed to know where time sort of shifts for everybody involved and to pay more focus and attention on how important this is! It makes that scene so tense. To Watch because he's constantly still practicing he still in the mode of practicing, but rather than showing a past tense, he practiced. He's actively doing while practicing it. There's another element to the present tense feel to while it's immediate and actionable. It also feels a little bit like slow. It's less about the present ten. Senate is about the shift from past to present when writing anything that has to do with action, it almost.

"It stopped. What we discovered is as lockdown measured. Swear taking place in different countries around the world. That was very clear. Significant decrease seismic knows that's Raphael the plan. A researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico research he co authored was published in the journal Science today, and shows manmade seismic noise dropping up to half globally this spring, so that was very interesting, because it was offering us a very concrete observation of decided of people were staying home as a way to protect the job it. It also presented an opportunity for science. Usually, lots of seismic noise makes it harder for researchers to detect small earthquakes. One of the plans co-authors compared it to trying to hear your phone ring at a rock concert this spring. The background volume got turned down. We each and focus on the natural signals. Trying to detect very small is derived, couldn't be absorbed before with last mount of filtering and processing more like hearing that phone ring in a library deploy, says identifying these earthquakes when it's quiet. Quiet is going to make it easier for scientists to find them again. When all that background noise comes back, scientists across the globe have been making local observations sometimes with small seismometers in their basements since lockdown started McGill University geophysicist Yang. Djing says this study brings those observations together to paint a global picture. She wasn't involved with the research. I think this is so far. The most comprehensive Stati on the global scale I'm very impressed by the scope of the study. It's part of a relatively. Relatively new sub field called social seismology, which finds connections between seismic activity and things like economic growth. This is sort of new direction that part of says Molly, branching into so I think there is a lot of contribution that's as you might be able to make in addition to just looking at the earthquake shaking records in this case, seismologists see the vibrations were making or not, as a gauge of how faithfully we're following doctor's orders to stay close to home for the world.
