"My editor. Who is way cooler than me has been hanging out on tiktok lately. And she says she's seen lots and lots of videos about cooking with satan. Apparently this meat substitute is having a bit of a moment. But i think there are still plenty of people who are still unfamiliar with this ingredient. And what the heck is it. How does it stack up nutritionally. And how do you eat it. Satan spelled s. e. I. t. a. n. is not a new thing. The word is japanese and it was coined about fifty years ago by one of the proponents of the macrobiotic diet. But the food that it refers to has been a staple in asian cultures for at least fifteen centuries. I remember seeing it but not buying it at the food cop that i belong to as an undergraduate at boston university now. That wasn't quite fifteen centuries ago but it was still long before the days of whole foods stores and yoga studios on every corner back then food co-ops and health food in general occupied sort of a fringe culture leftover from the age of aquarius. Today of course it's another story. Plant based in plant. Forward diets have become relatively mainstream. And you're much more likely to run across satan at your local grocery store.

It has sort of a stringy chewy texture that makes it a fairly good substitute for meat.

The One Thing About Raya and the Last Dragon That Never Changed
"Celebrating Southeast Asian culture. It's now in theaters and streaming on Disney, plus the lead character. Ryan is introduced as Disney's first Southeast Asian princess. Now, in order to restore peace, we must find the last dragon. But some critics have called Disney out for casting only one actor of Southeast Asian descent in a prominent speaking role. Kelly Marie Tran, who voices Riah. Those roles mostly went to actors of East Asian descent. Why Chan Booty is a film critic with slash film. Most of the reaction I saw online Woz praise and general positivity from Southeast Asian critics, although if you have voice the same criticism I have towards the film's melting pot approach, and even more are unhappy with the casting choices. It's mostly goes into the issue of treating Asians as a monolith, no matter which country they come from, and there is a distinction between East Asian countries in Southeast Asian countries. We reached out to Disney about the casting issue in particular, and they put us in touch with a co writer of the movie Adele Limb. And we've got a clip of her response. Let's listen any time that there is a prominent Asian forward movie or we have Asian leads. You know that one project has to kind of take on the burden because there's just not enough of them particularly pariah. We just feel so lucky that we have the actors that we have who have just connected so deeply and so meaningful Lee to their parts. So what do you think It sounds like She's setting the bar sort of low so they can celebrate it when they surmounted. Yeah, And this is an issue that is muddy even among the Asian, American, Southeast Asian American communities Riot and the last Dragon. Is build so heavily as that first Southeast Asian inspired Disney animated movie so it feels like a large missed opportunity to not cast the main
With 'Raya,' Disney has their biggest animated action hero to date — and yes, she's still a princess
"Chang says the new Disney film Riot, and the last Dragon is not just for kids. He calls it a gorgeously animated fantasy adventure with a hopeful message. For this moment, the movie began streaming on Disney plus today. Ryan and the last Dragon is the lovely moving surprise. Its big selling point is that it's the first Disney animated film to feature Southeast Asian characters. Like so many movies that break ground in terms of representation, it tells a story that's actually woven from reassuringly familiar parts. Didn't mind that in the slightest. The movie directed by the Disney veteran Don Hall and the animation newcomer Carlos Lopez. Estrada brings us into a fantasy world that's been beautifully visualized and populated with engaging characters. And it builds to an emotional climax that I'm still thinking about days later. Story is a little complicated as these stories tend to be It takes place in command Ra and enchanted realm inspired by various Southeast Asian cultures and divided into five kingdoms, named after a dragon's body parts heart Thing, spine, Talyn and tail. Before they became extinct centuries ago. Dragons once roamed the land and served as friendly guardians to humanity. Their magic lives on in a Jule called the Dragon Gym, which is kept in a cave in the heart, but the other four kingdoms covet. It's mighty powers. One day all five factions come together and try to reach a peace agreement. But tensions erupt. Ah fight breaks out, and the gem shatters into five pieces that are scattered across come, Andhra. This opens the doorway to an ancient enemy called Bedroom, a terrible plague that turns people to stone. Actually, a hero must rise and save the day. Her name is Ryan. And she's a young warrior princess from heart voiced by the excellent Kelly Marie Tran from Star Wars. The last Jedi. I Ryan manages to escape the drone, though her father, her body whose leader of heart isn't so lucky. Now Ryan must recover the pieces of the Dragon Jim, reverse the damage and banished that room for good. This is the first time we've seen a brave young character embark on a quest for magical bottles. And Ryan and the last Dragon is rooted in traditional fantasy lore with the Lord of the Rings and game of Thrones being just the most obvious influences. Movies, Intense scenes of sword play and hand to hand combat. Give it a tougher, more grown up field and most Disney animated fantasies. My own young daughter had to cover her eyes a few times. Some other recent Disney princesses, including marijuana, and Elsa Ryan has a bold, adventurous streak and isn't all that interested in romance? Unlike them, she doesn't even have time to sing a song. That said the movie still has plenty of lightness and humor. Screenwriters. Quick win and Adele Limb have provided the usual Disney array of cute critters and lively supporting characters. None of them is more colorful than see Soo Ah friendly water Dragon who is magically resurrected during riots journey. She's the last of her kind, and she has a crucial role to play in the story. She's voiced delightfully by Aquafina doing one of her signature chatterbox comedy routines and selling everyone of ceases and naturalistic wisecracks. In one scene, she touches a piece of the dragon Jim and magically Lights up. Which riots sees as a hopeful sign. You were glowing. Oh, thank you. I use Alan Rivers climb. Maintain my know this'd my little sister office magic. I got that glow in your little sister's much jack. Yet. Every dragon has a unique magic. Okay, What's yours? I am a really strong swimmer. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. You touch this gym piece, and it gave you powers. You know what this means? Right? I no longer need a night light. What? No, you're still connected to the jumps. Magic, not means you can still use it to save the world. If we can get all the other Jen pieces, you can reassemble it and, well, the drooling away. And bring my bar back and bring all of commander back Ryan and sees his journey takes them toe. All five kingdoms of command ra all of which are so vivid and transporting, I found myself wishing they really existed. More than I could have at least seen them on a proper movie screen. There's the town of talent, which is built at the edge of a river and the desert wasteland of tail where Ryan and See Soo must enter a cave of obstacles straight out of an Indiana Jones adventure. As the two of them search for more dragon Jim pieces. They, of course, pick up a few friends along the way. There's a street smart boy who cooks a mean shrimp Con ji and a toddler pickpocket, whom I found more creepy than cute. The movie's most intriguing character is no Mari arrival. Princess from Fang, who's voiced by Gemma Chan. As a side note. Chan and Aquafina both appeared in crazy rich Asians, which, like this movie was co written by Adele Limb. Mari and Roya used to be friends until the fight over the dragon Jim rip them apart. Now they're bitter enemies, and their emotional dynamic is fierce and complicated in ways that relationships are rarely allowed to be in Children's animated films, especially between women. Contrast, See, Sue is all feel good vibes. She's a dragon, after all, with little understanding of how treacherous humans can be. She doesn't get by riot and the Mari distrust each other so why they can't just set their differences aside and defeat the drone together. It's Caesar's sincerity and purity of heart. That makes the stories finale so unexpectedly stirring, especially now. Our fates are closely bound together. It reminds us as it builds a case for forgiveness, reconciliation and mutual sacrifice. The emotional power of riot and the last dragon sneaks up on you. Its lessons aren't knew exactly, but it makes you feel like you're learning them for the first time. Justin

The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
"Welcome to untangle so happy to have you here today. Thank you pitcher. Share happy to be here. The i love your work. You've done such incredible stuff. And i just for our audience. I just think this first paragraph in your book was so interesting it starts like this in this incredibly competitive society of ours. How many of us truly feel good about ourselves. It seems like such a fleeting thing feeling good especially as we need to feel special or above average to feel worthy anything else. Seems like a failure. Tell me a little bit about that. And what led you to really do this. Work on self compassion. Yes so i started practicing self compassion. When i started learning mindfulness actually my last year in graduate school. Uc berkeley a man. I did two years post doctoral. Study with one of the country's leading self esteem racers. And i started really becoming familiar with all the research. Showing the downsides of self esteem. It's not a downside of having high self esteem but of pursuing it trying to get it the shenanigans. We go through trying to go good about ourselves compared to others and so i kind of thought that was practicing self compassion and seeing the incredible benefits my personal life and i just thought this is such a healthier way to think about. How did we late yourself. Positively themselves esteem. so that's kind of really would give me the. You might say that confidence to actually start researching self passion. But what's wrong with self esteem. So many parents today want their children to have self esteem and self competence. Tell us a little bit about the difference between self esteem and self compassion right. So there's absolutely nothing wrong with self esteem feeling. You're a person of worth in value. And we definitely want people have a sense of high worth as opposed to 'having themselves and and that's the wellbeing goes about question really. The problem is how people go about getting their high self esteem so for most people s steam involves a process of social comparison. Right so i mean again. If i said patricia your podcast yet savage. How would you feel. You probably feel good about that. Evaluation right asked this kind of the way. The system is stacked against us. We all have to feel average at least in those areas that are important to us to feel like that's just like baseline minimum self esteem. And so we're always comparing ourselves to others. If someone else does something better than we do. We often feel inadequate comparison. The really big problem with self esteem. as it tends to be contingent in other words we only have self esteem roomy succeed. We lose it when we fail so when things are going well for sure we lacquer cells we feel we have value but what happens when we fail. We blow that big job assignment or get rejected soon as fail ourselves esteemed desserts us which is actually precisely when we need that. Self confidence. The most self compassion. It's not about judging yourself positively. It's not saying. I'm a good person. Or i'm better than other people i most great is just about relating to yourself kindly so there is a sense of self worth inheritance self compassion but self worth comes from just being a glide human being where the like all other flawed human beings as opposed in necessarily succeeding or on being better than others. So you're done research showing the sense of self worth linked to self compassion as much more stable over time than just a simple self-worth judging yourself positively but how did we get in this culture to a place where we are so critical of ourselves and where we need to study something like self compassion where it's not a natural characteristic. I'm not convinced that it's just a western cultural phenomena. I mean i think definitely hard in the west because there's so much pressure to compete and succeed. Same thing in east asian cultures with as a lot of pressure to succeed and compete. But i also think there are some natural reasons while we tend to our jump to solve criticism immediately a mess. Basically that when we feel inadequate in some way or we fail at something we feel threatened and when we feel threatened we naturally have the threat. Defense response right. We want to attack the situation. Get rid of the problems of. You'll safe again. Unfortunately when the problem is ourselves when we attack the threat we actually attack ourselves. So i really do. Think at some level our tendency to to be self-critical is really desire to keep ourselves safe.
Finding A Cure For Hangovers
"Everyone, it's Martin from twenty minute fitness. I'm here in San Francisco and I'm connected with season Lee founder of more laps Could you please do to yourself and Tello our audience? WHAT MORE ABSENCE? All about? Yeah. I Li- Martin having me. Yeah. Little background about myself. I was born in Korea and immigration with my family to Canada when I was nine. So I grew up in Canada did all my school here under Grad and that moved To Central Cisco right after that where it began my career as a product manager at Facebook, a couple of years through lots of different asserted destroyed I ended up in L. A. starting two thousand seventeen to start what's more laps today am what has more labs do is essentially we're stupid you company on Consumer Goods Company that makes what we call science beck supplements that combat modern-day stressors that slow you down such as fatigue poor sleep quality. Hangovers. I. Mean we referred to our products says, life products you know things that can help you hack your life be more productive than just more joy out of it and yeah, I mean like one of your hero products has been morning recovery. Maybe we can start with that product and you can tell us what actual day stressors this product actually focuses on. Yeah I mean I think the sort of DOT gr no more labs and our mission definitely evolved from morning recovery, which was the first product and basis of our company in its early days although we a lot of months where this was sort of a fun side project before it stepped into A. FULLTIME and a company with a mission, but ultimately, morning recovery think of it as their a remedy for when you consume alcohol especially if you to consume too much alcohol. So we we have it's a holistic approach though it's not a single ingredient but the hero ingredient is flavonoids called out Dha, which is an acronym. Extracted from a plant known as doses, which is also known as on Oreo, Japanese, raising tree, and product that carry the is actually quite popular in Eastern Asian culture especially create Japan, and what's interesting here is that it's got properties a speed up the breakdown of what as hell to hide, which is a highly inflammatory biproduct alcohol that's created when we rate out in our liver and so ultimately when we consume any type of liquor beer wide, ultimately, it's alcohol that we needed to break down into a civic asset fled under body but before call acidic acid, it turns into height that's actually a byproduct as much more than alcohol itself, and so all the really doing is. Acting as a catalyst to help your body break on sort of faster than that you, you didn't have a morning recovery and so at its core at you know that sort of how it works right. So basically helps me to process alcohol much quicker or my liver by that I mean, of course, and then the next day I on much faster recovered and I don't half that sensation of well hangover which for many people can be quite a few different things from nausea rain faulk to exhaustion dizziness headache CETERA, right? That's right. Yeah. Arrive at that compound yes. Oh, you know initially I mentioned through a lot of serendipitous dirty. We got two more labs and so I think It's difficult to sort of describe how we found developed the product without going through the founding story. But I, mean ultimately over decades especially in places Korea Japan, there's actually a giant industry, but that's explicit known as hangover drinks as funny as that sounds just like how energy drink is massive north. America with hero brands such as red bull monster at everybody is very familiar with personal concept over there but replace energy drink with hangover drinks. Now why? Why is that? So I mean I think a lot of it is a cultural thing and I think there's two components to it. This is just my best my best guess what is scheduled to set to drink quite a bit and so a data sources such renominated a year year actually shows that Korea especially is the number one liquor consuming country in the world. So I'll give you a statistic that's kind of mind blowing fourteen shots of liquor per week per capita in south, Korea and number two Russia at seven, and so I think this is one of those things where when people talk about worker. Party without ever actually having been to places like. China Hong Kong Japan Korea people definitely drink a much frequently and I think maybe that's also the reason why and especially because they have such a cutthroat work environment where even though the throughout the week, not just weekends next day you you have to dress up and go to work
Why you should expect the unexpected with upcycling
"Cycling expect the unexpected sometimes, I think of cycling has limits and then I get the unexpected when I mean by this is that while just stumbling around since as I sometimes wonder is there anything I can do with an item or even leftover receives? Well, here are a few inches in flatts I found what I was like doing what I call stumbling around I was eating some food with With olives in it, and after I finished the pits, I put them in A. Pot with soil wishes what I do with a lot of my. To see if anything will grow but then I started wondering, is there anything that can be made from these buddy? Haughty look in pits in his Irish more I've found a jury has not made from these pits seemingly for a very long time. Asian cultures have used them and so have other cultures to cover up beat for religious rosaries. In other types of jewelry I also found out recently that insane some research has taken place where these are used. To transform out to serve as would cleaners I know that the process is not excessively this it does show it reuse a what was formerly a waste into something much more useful. The uses for this pit range from using it as fuel and as a products for the. As its Williams maybe on a small level these fits could be drawn used for a range of products I. Guess. The point of all this is that up cycling gives you ideas to always expect the unexpected from what would normally be considered garbage in a world where resources are already difficult to come by it was served as well to rethink of anything we want to dispose of I believe me that is what most. exciting is a about old, is I think up settling has the ability to up help us think outside the box to think with innovation expect the unexpected. Just, always. Make, sure you do research and make sure that the item is safe to be used.
Interview With Kamala Harris
"US Senator. Kamla Harris is an open born Howard educated lawyer legislator former district attorney of San Francisco and Attorney General of California in Twenty Twenty Democratic presidential candidate. She is the daughter of immigrants who met during the civil rights era Berkley Hello Bay area shout out Bay area and her mother's from Indian. Her father's from Jamaica so welcome to Asian enough senator. It's great to be with you so I'm going to take. Take the first question, and we're just GONNA. Jump right into it so in your memoir. You talked about how your mother made. Conscious choices about raising you and your sister is black woman, though with strong and unquestionable connections to Indian culture. How did she do that? Tell us more about that. Well, so I mean it's complicated, and and probably a lot deeper more complex than we have time for, but I'll try You know she arrived in the US. When she was nineteen years old. She was the eldest of my grandparents. Children and you know an Asian cultures that. She wanted to become a scientist. She wanted to cure cancer, so she went to her father as the eldest child, and it set up by WANNA. Go and I study in what is considered to be one of the best schools for science. I WANNA go to UC Berkeley, and Mike Grandfather it now. This is his eldest daughter, and this is in the late nineteen fifties. Said okay. Follow your dreams. He was very progressive. So my mother flew this. When transient ENA national flights were really very rare, and she arrived in Berkeley California alone. And began her studies, and because my grandfather was really an advocate for India's independence, he was really a extraordinary person, and really always fighting for democracy. And Justice and so immediately. Then of course, my mother was naturally attracted to the civil rights movement that was blossoming or occurring in the bay area and Met My father, and so instead of going back to India had been the plan to have you know what would have been an arranged marriage? She met my father and had a love marriage, and that through my sister and me and my mother understood you know she was just conscious of race. She understood what these things meant. And she knew that in America that her daughters would be treated as for better and for worse as black women and black. Black children and she raised us with a sense of pride about who we were who we are, but never with a false choice, right? It was never to the exclusion of of always also being very proud and very active in terms of our Indian culture as well, but she and she understood what America was at the time, and who America is, and and the struggles that people face in America, and so that's that's it in a nutshell. But there were never any false choices you know. We grew up in the black community and learned that you can cook Okra with mustard seeds, or with dry shrimp in and spicy sausages. Did you learn any of those recipes you. Did you keep any of those? You know my will, so I mean? My mother was an extraordinary cook, and as was my grandmother, my aunt, my. Is the. It's the name for your. Your mother's younger sister basically means younger mother, and she thankfully still with us. She and she's a great cook. Indian cooking is very complicated. It's like a lot of Asian cooking. There are a lot of different spices and she was such a good cook, and my aunt is such a good cook so I never really had to learn how to make Indian food, but I have been slowly teaching myself how to do that. But my mother was also. She loved good foods, so she would make. Incredible Italian meals. She would make you know I. Remember US making bows and. Tons I. Remember s making you know. She loved to make barbecue. It was just it was a ECLECTIC, but I think it was just was a very universal I in many ways she loved cultures, and and and she loves to cook.
Asians have the highest incomes in the United States
"According to the US census in two thousand Seventeen Asian people at the highest median household income in this country by a lot, which is more than twice the median household income of black people. And that's what we're talking about. Here is that we have intentionally assimilated into white society. I mean we have to kind of exam kind of interrogate the fact that most Asian Americans have a white American accent. That's because we have assimilated with White Society, so let's start from the start acknowledging that we have done that. That's I think the bias that a lot of asian-americans come from is that we have surrounded ourselves with white people and have kind of neglected understanding, other minority communities namely the black community. Well Look I. The the truth is I. Didn't I never grew up around black people I think Ron. Any black people there was one black kid in my middle school and I watched him get relentlessly made fun of and I stood by didn't do anything about it and I have a lot of guilt associated with that, but like the truth is. I was I had no exposure to black people until college. My parents didn't have any black friends. It starts there. It starts with not having that experience like I. I'm not GonNa pretend that like I. Spend most of my days hanging out with black people like I, said I have a limited number of black friends now like it's not, you know luckily. I I work in food media where I get to encounter a much broader range of people than I, did growing up, but like I wanted to speak very frankly about my own experience in that is like. I just didn't have that exposure. My parents had even less of it. and. Their perspective is informed very differently from ours. And I think it's really important that we have these conversations with them, but we have to just sort of. Remember how hard it is to empathize with the group that you have no contact with. But we need everybody to see this right and this is the giant Delta between. What we need them to know and what they WANNA know, of course, look, it's interesting. Right because the three of us are maybe not. The ideal group because. We all have had ambitions to be heard we all in our own ways. We've wanted to be out there. Dave is very out there. But I don't think and tell me if I'm wrong but like. I don't think that the previous generation. Our parents have any desire to stick out. They don't want to stick their necks out there. I'm just talking about the model minority thing again. That's not that's not their parents. Generation that's Asian culture, too. Yeah. I think that's pervasive over across generations I think even now the prevailing attitude of Asian Americans, I can speak for my generation, generally speaking of an aberration like I'm very outspoken, but I'm the aberration. I'm the exception to the rule out of times and that. That kinda needs to change especially as it pertains to very important issues like this like police brutality against black people like we should be at the forefront of this, we should be allying. I was at the protests on Saturday in mid city Los. Angeles and I saw a bunch of Asian people in that gave me a lot of hope but Asian people make up about ten eleven percent of the population Los Angeles I don't think we were ten percent of the crowd that was out there marching. And we can do better. We can do better as asian-americans. Madge. If you're listening to this right and I was like this isn't a podcast. This is just a conversation. Well, yeah because I don't think there's anything you can't talk about right now. Other than what's happening I. Think it's so important that we need to have an honest conversation with my friends that I work with about how we can. Change perspectives and shift the alignment so old generation to generation to the newest generation all on the same page. Because the reason you're here and you have the civil liberties that you do have is simply because. Black. People had to go through slavery. They've had to endure the most. Awful of atrocities. Jim Crow Segregation. Now voter suppression everything is wrong and built against black people yet. Somehow people have benefited from it. And I can see a lot of Asian people being. That's not our problem. Well it is your problem because I don't think is right for you to benefit and to not have any issues right because someone else's carrying the burden.
How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire Our World
"What are social norms? So this is a great question and as a cross cultural psychologists. I tried to understand this really puzzling. Phenomena of culture culture is one of these puzzles because it's omnipresent. It's all around us but it's invisible like we tend to ignore it all the time and it's like the story of two fish. Were there swimming along? And they pass another fish. Who says how's the water boys and they swim on and wants US the other? What the Hell is water and for fish? This invisible thing is waterboy for humans. It's culture and a big part of culture is social norms or these unwritten standards for behavior that sometimes become more formalized in laws and rules but nevertheless we follow social norms all the time endlessly without even realizing it and we have to really understand their impact on social behavior. And that's why I wrote the book. That's so cool. Well thank you for writing it and for shyness late on this. But certainly there's individual differences in them like dark triad people. You know people who score high on the dark triad Scales and Machiavelli's and narcissism psychopathy. They they don't like social norms. They are versed. Do it. Well you know I've right in the book about sort of individual differences in people who like or dislike social norms rulemakers rube acres. You can think about the analogy of the chaos quarter. Muppets exactly like think about sesame. Street like the chaos. Muppets are like you know. Cookie Monster and you know and animal who loved to just create chaos. And don't follow rules by Ernie and Bert actually and Kermit the frog who love rules and I actually have tight-loose mindset quiz on my website where you can find out. Where do you veer in terms of mindsets people who like tightness really notice rules? They have a lot of impulse control. And they like structure. People who beer lose tend to ignore rules more often. They're more impulsive. But they're more creative and more open minded book. I talk about the advantages and disadvantages of this construct across levels from nations to neurons from states to organization. So it's something that I think about as a fractional pattern which is repeated pattern of phenomenon across different levels and I tried illuminate why titans differences evolve in the first place at Cross levels and what what consequence love the link that to creativity. Some people have. I wonder how that relates to some people. Argue that Asian cultures are less creative? You know then. Do you think that some of that can be explained by sort of the laser looseness titan of the culture itself? Yes so in our first analysis tight. Lucy was across thirty something nations where we were able to classify nations as veering Erg loose. Even knowing that all nations have tightened elements and some countries like Japan and Singapore China. Beer tighter than places like Brazil and New Zealand and the Netherlands Brazil anything goes indicators of Titus was the accuracy of clocks and how coordinated crops are city streets tight cultures the quad city streets. Pretty much say the same thing but in loose cultures like Brazil or Greece entirely. Sure what time it is because the clocks around you say a lot of different things and that speaks to something. That really is about the tight lose. Tradeoff tight cultures have a lot of order and loose cultures a lot of openness and that means that both have strengths and liabilities. Depending on your vantage point so your question about creativity. We have found that across nations across states. 'cause organizations that are tight. They tend to have less novelty idea generation than loose cultures by. What's interesting and we're finding this recently. Is that each. Has its own strengths. In terms of innovation. So who's cultures can create a lot of ideas but tight cultures can implement that much better so in fact both again have strengths that can be brought to bear on a common issue like innovation. Oh great have you read Richard Florida's work at all and the credit? Yeah the creativity class and yeah and at the city level. Also I think he's really staying. That's right because this also differs state by state within America rate. Do you think like is there a south difference versus? I don't know I don't WanNa grossly stereotype things without you. Actually telling me what the data says so in one of the chapter in the book. I talk about how we can move beyond red vs blue right right. In fact we have a paper in the Journal. Precedes National Academy that rank orders the fifty states into the tight and loose and often? You're saying that the South tends to actually of your tight. They have more strict rules. They have more order to some extent they have less creativity. They're also more polite so the route estates are the loosest states which tend to be on the coasts but those states had to have more creativity like like you surmised and so what got me does that we can kind of look at different different states now through a new Lens. One of the more important things that I talk about in the book is why these differences evolve in the first place and what we find across nation states etc is that groups. That have a lot of threat. Whether it's from Mother Nature like chronic disasters are famine or other human types of threats pathogens or population density or invasions tend to veer tighter. And the logic's pretty simple when groups have a lot of threat. They need rules to coordinate to survive and norm provide that they help people to actually control themselves in difficult situations and the titus states in the US tend to have more threat. They have more pathogens have more disasters and so forth and so there's some kind of logic to why groups evolved to be tighter loose. I mean with that sad and we could talk about it later. Threats now are whether perceived or real tend to produce the same psychology and. That's something nowadays that we're dealing with more. And more in terms of how tight who's manifesting itself in politics and in other contexts where threat is less objective and more
An insight into Kamala Harris, a potential VP for Biden
"I am Jonathan Kaye. Part AND WELCOME TO CAPE UP. Long before people started swooning over Congressman. Val demings of Florida as a possible vice president. Joe Biden folks. We're talking about senator. Kamla Harris California back in January twenty nineteen few weeks before Harris announced her own since disbanded presidential campaign. I sat with her in front of a live audience at George Washington University for the kickoff tour. For her the truth we hold because Harris's book is a memoir. Our conversation was heavy on stories about parents upbringing and her career. There's no better way to get to know this possible vice president than listening right now. Senator Harris thank you very much for for being here for choosing Washington to be the kickoff of your book tour and or actually to be correct books tour and as we see the truths we hold an American journey and then also superheroes are everywhere. I'm going to focus on the truths we hold k. And I'm going to focus on something that happens before even page one and I want to clear it up. Okay for anyone who might have done this or still doing this. Despite hearing it said correctly the first time pronounce your name Carmela so just think of like the punctuation Mark Comma and that Adalah and there you got and so then what does communism mean then. So it's a very traditional classic Indian name and it derives from Sanskrit and it's it means the lotus flower and so it's very prevalent and a lot of Asian cultures and the idea the symbolism. Is that the Lotus flowers sits on water but it never really gets wet. The water beats off of it and so the idea being that one can be in the midst of chaos or be in the midst of something happening and and be there and should be there and it doesn't necessarily need to penetrate you but one should be there and equally important Its roots are in the mud meaning. It is grounded and and one must always know where they come from and can still be this thing now. I need you to pronounce another name for me for the life of me. I just I couldn't do it. And that is the name of your mother Shammala. So the why is silent Shama Sharmila what was really Shamlan? Go Gopala tell us about your mom. Caller Mommy Mommy. We always called her. Mommy I am not embarrassed to say she is mommy and She is in many ways. The reason I wrote the book my sister my is here My Mother's one of her best friends from college is here. Lenore POMERANZ I write about in the book and my mother was a force of nature. A drill force of nature. She is someone who all five feet of her. If you met her after you walked away you would have thought she was seven Tom. My mother was a truth teller. She spoke the truth. She was probably the smartest toughest and most loving person I've ever known. She raised her daughters with a belief that we could do and be anything. She taught us that. Don't let people tell you who you are and you tell them who you are. She was a scientist. Breast cancer researcher should goals in her life to end breast cancer and raise her two daughters and she would take us to the lab with her at go after school on the weekends and being around scientists one of the things that I realize now early in my life I learned was that one should see what can be unburdened by what has been because that is science is about. It's the pursuit of those things that will improve the condition of life. That will solve problems. That will make things better. And that's why I'm naturally attracted to also anything that is about innovation understanding that innovation. We do it not because we're bored with things the way they've been but because we should always be in pursuit of being more efficient more effective more relevant and and that's what she is and was your father. Donald Harris also an immigrant born born in Jamaica. Yeah an economics professor at Stanford. And let's David. Mind comes from some BRAINIAC parents. Your mom got her. He H D. The year you were born does put that out there so now your dad comes to the United States from Jamaica. Yeah my father was equally brilliant. And is he was a national scholar and Jamaica. He earned his way and up in out and came to the United States into Berkeley to study economics and My parents met when they were active in the civil rights movement. And it's an interesting story because as you know my mother graduated college when she was nineteen and did and so she so she said to my grandfather who was one of the freedom fighters in India for India's independence and my mother was the eldest of four children. She was the oldest at at a girl obviously and she said to my grandparents. She wanted to study science and she wanted to go to what was considered to be one of the best schools and that was UC Berkeley and my grandparents looked at her and said okay. We will put you on a plane and you can go to a place. You've never been at nineteen years old. This was in nineteen fifty nine. So this young this girl. This young woman got on a plane encouraged by her parents to go and pursue her dream now. The back story is also that it was fully expected she would get that degree and go back and have a good arranged marriage but of course my mother having been raised and being who she was just naturally she when she got to Berkeley was immediately attracted to the civil rights movement. Why do you defend? That's where she met. My father was and but I want to say she met my father and decided to have a love marriage and a marriage based on love which I believe is the ultimate act of optimism. The the question that I interrupted. You're you're Satan with. Why do you think she was so attracted to the civil rights movement she was raised growing up? Would go back to India like every other year and And so I know the family from that that that raised her because they helped raise us and it was always about fighting for independence was about finding justice. It was about fighting to make sure that all people had a say in their future in their government an equal say and that was that was in her blood and of course that's what the civil rights movement was about and the free speech movement and and there are some funny stories. I was just sharing with something backstage. You know so I witness I right about in the book you know from my strollers. I view and there's a a funny family story about how some mothers marching with the extended family. I talk about like aunt Mary and Uncle Freddie and the book and she would tell the story about. How DO THEY MARTIN? And this is back when strollers didn't really have armrest seatbelts. Martin Away and you know shouting and and all of that and then I think Mongol Freddie a look down in the stroller which was empty followed up. My mother tells funny story like one day. She was fussing and and you know so much cuter when she would tell the story but she'd say so then she would look down at me and come on. What do you want? What do you want and I look back up in a said fleet on so glad that story. I wanted to hear you safe. We how I wanted to talk about your your father economics professor Stanford they meet atmospherically. Had you and my And you love going to the park and your mom would correct me. If I'm wrong would put limits on you in terms of how far you go. Whatever and your dad would say to you. Run RUN COM run. That's right he would say. Do not be afraid. Let her go let her go. Let her run. You run as fast as you. Can you run as far as you want and I believe that his whole purpose was to say. Do not be afraid and be
When the fear is worse than the disease
"Are you scared of the corona virus if so what exactly are you scared of why. How does that fear show up in your life right? You do anything differently or do you just worry. Even if you're not really afraid how do you feel when you see somebody a couple of seats over from me on the bus where amass. What if they start coughing? And you see the latest numbers of cases and deaths in China and other countries. Who are what you blame why? This is all psychology but it is important because fear makes otherwise rational people irrational and it gives the ugliest impulses that people can have an opportunity to take the wheel and for the worst of us. It's not even even here. It's just an excuse. So how can we fight. The other. Viral infection at candidate is facing the one that is so far harming a lot more more people than a disease. That's almost exclusively on the other side of the world Jordan Heathrow this is the big story. Evelyn Kwong a digital producer at the Toronto Star. She also writes a weekly column about social media. Hello Hi how are you. I'm doing all right Before we start because we're going to talk about the real impact of the corona virus and Canada before we do that to give us some perspective. Can you give us an update. It is Monday afternoon as we're talking What is the scope of this worldwide? And what's the scope of it in Canada so right now in Canada as of Monday we have four cases in Canada One and BBC two in Toronto and one in London The latest one was the woman in London and she's in her twenties apparently because she's younger. She had like a you know the immune system is a little bit better. She's actually just home quarantine so they're think those cases are ones they can tackle and that could be solved by the Canadian health system. So actually here. It's not a crazy or like fearful kind of Epidemic or anything. That's happening right now. That's what we're hearing from the public health officials so basically. It's not something that we need to worry about that much in Canada and they didn't really have to suspend any flights or anything but Air Canada just one on their own to make their own decisions to suspend plates for a month from Beijing and Shanghai but they said that's on their own accord The world there are there have been three hundred sixty one deaths as has of Monday afternoon mostly from China and one being the first out of country one being from in the Philippines a forty four year old man just recently they add I think last last week they declared it a Global health emergency only for the reason that countries that didn't have as good as a health system as China wouldn't be able to handle that kind of situation so I think they're kind of seeing that with the person in the Philippines who just passed away. I think that was just on Saturday too. So it's interesting because you said that in Canada we don't have of a crazed fearful epidemic. We definitely do not and our officials are telling that straight to us to use the word fearful and there is fear here there are definitely is fear because a whole different thing. That really reminds me of the two thousand and three SARS situation. Why don't we start with that? Because I should note that you wrote your column on this you also so Spoken about it a lot on twitter. And it's why we wanted to talk with you so start with that. What do you remember about that experience as an Asian woman in Candida well? At that time I was only in grade three but you already feel that and I feel that when you're in when you're that young still to internalize that sort of every day kind of raises them. Which which does happen you know like before the sourcing people would ask me weird questions like if I ate dog but then in two thousand and three it would become this whole different thing where people friends ends of mind would actually start moving across the room and not sitting with me for lunch or really questioning what I was eating and it could be just something normal? Tofu and is Asian food. Because that's what my mom made a home right so it would just be something that I felt really embarrassed about and not understanding my identity fully. I would throw those launches out and not eat them because I just felt so so shameful of having them in front of me and just people surrounding me and other than my own experience I would see my mom kind of. She doesn't have like she can speak English but I think when she has to defend herself in that situation she someone who immigrated here from Hong Kong. It's not her first language so I didn't really know how to defend her being that young and she kind of just told me like let's just kind of void. Everybody if we can you know wanting to be invisible and when you started to hear the news of the Krona Virus Three weeks ago. It's out of China. Was your first thought I was already. I knew there was a huge backlash. GonNa come through not like not just in Canada but America in other Western countries. I I knew that it was coming and it was something that I think tweeted a long time ago even before we had one case here. I'm like I can't not I can't wait but I'm like I just know this is going to happen or something and that totally. Julio did take place as well and as much as we try to you know make sure the misinformation of like you know. Don't go to Chinatown like all that is not real and all. That doesn't need to be sad ed or it's actually not scientifically proven but to this day. We're seeing a lot of implications not just like for personal experience and of course that's important but a lot of small businesses in Chinatown in a town or in Markham to places where there's predominantly a Chinese community. They're feeling crazy impacts from this. Give me some examples so one example is that I mean. I don't know if everyone one knows what six buzzes but six buzzes kind of like I would say a Social Media News conglomerate thing that's four young people and as much as it is great. That young people have something thanks to look forward to. They're spending a lot of misinformation so one example is that they took a photo they were sent before took a photo of this noodle shop in Markham called Wuhan Noodle much is obviously horrified like for most people seeing that it's still going to trigger them to feel type of way. They put it on their instagram. They have one point four million followers and by no means no science behind it just saying like tag someone you would want to eat here or like tag the person that should eat here implicating like you're kind of finding one person you wanNA Wish some harm by eating this place but really when we we had a reporter go out from Toronto DOT COM which is kind of sister paper they went out and spoke to the owner and and they said they've lost two thirds of their business. which is I mean? That's just really sad for someone who said they came to Canada with the dream of opening their little business and you know making their life year. Now they're really feeling the repercussions which are not scientifically based at all. Like if you eat there is not going to change things. They don't have that soup and I think that was the first line that came out of that article. It was a quote by them. Saying we don't have perhaps soup we don't serve that so it's like all the stuff that you're the justify which kind of seems weird when you're in Canada and a lot of Asian people in Asian Jasper. Don't don't eat those sort of things but it's like now. We ought to kind of defend ourselves in that way. Can you explain a little bit about the role that Stereotypes from Western folks around Asian Food in Asian culture. In general play in this This treatment one hundred percent so it started back even like from inception of our country With the Chinese head taxes which basically started because they brought Chinese laborers from China and just use them as kind of like workers for the railroad and other things and if some of them mm died they'd just bring more of such a punishment or something like that and to deter them from bringing their own families to Canada. Because it didn't want Chinese people here they would put a fifty dollar head talks on them. So it's kind of like that kind of started that whole thing and it's been something that has happened in all Western countries but it's kind of overall fear or mystery around Chinese Chinese people or Asian people in general and then when the food starting cub started coming here and America's Wall N. in Canada. I believe there's a New York Times review that in in the sixties Caesar seventies that said Oh. MSG is really bad for you and also Chinese restaurants are really dirty. And that's where the whole notion came from you can obviously find. Videos goes of people eating different foods and different cultures. And that's all they know and of course. I wish that there was a way to show the different health implications of all these things but when it comes to that even to this day people still have that stereotype of you know. Do you guys eat dogs. Like I was literally asa question two years ago by a stranger. And it's like very strange to hear obviously for me But even for anybody because not many people do that and it's just like because you've seen one video on social media now you're going to expand it and say every Asian person does that. It's it's kind of sad so there's always been a fear around Asian food and this whole idea that the things that Asian people aren't really civilized and and gross. Honestly this is gonNA GONNA sound like an extremely white question of meat asks. But when you're speaking with other folks in the Chinese community and you talk about this virus and what you're experiencing in Toronto around it. What are those conversations like there? I mean it's really disheartening. And you can actually see it on social media the good thing about the fact act that we have social media now is that we have people telling their stories you know. Hey my mom just got yelled at by a person who's in a car saying you're infected or like different stories or is that people are sharing about what's happening in the situation. It kind of brings a human lens like how can you really tell someone how sad they felt about this or that because it shows you that this place can be crazy easy like we all like to talk about Canada's sometimes as a multicultural blanket and that's all it is but really there are things that happened day-to-day that and this is not just a just because of krona's ars but it's only elevated because of that so speaking to them I think what I've learned from them and what we have kind of come to realize that we kinda need to share experiences so staring that sorry experience of mine was something that people were like. Wow I can't believe that people who are Kinda confused about how this fearmongering really works. It was just like hey I'm a Girl was born in. Canada doesn't didn't travel anywhere but still I had to throw my lunches because I felt so embarrassed to be part of that or even linked to that asianise that I had so so I think right now all we wanna do is step up and mostly. It's it's angry. People are angry in the Chinese community. People are sad but the way to fight it is with also just sharing their own stories and also hoping allies step in as well. What do I need to do? I feel like there's a lot of misinformation and I wouldn't want I wouldn't wish wish it on anyone to just scroll all through twitter and report stuff and fight people. I think that doesn't work at all. I think one thing is just take it off social media and talk to someone in that community. It doesn't necessarily have to be you. Of course. The Chinese community is really reeling from this but also Asian communities are are as well because they are often mistaken as being Chinese. anyways doesn't like no one really kind of looks beyond the fact that you could look Asian and asks you where you're from so I think it's about speaking with someone in that community and understanding a human level of like. Hey what's going on. I wonder how you feel feel I think that would really change your mind and before for some people who are really active on twitter and just want to give their thoughts and just put their thoughts out there. I think it's good to just reevaluate and check with someone and who's going. Maybe he's probably going through it. You spend an awful lot of time on social media. The point of your column in the Star. was that when something like this happens it makes it worse.
Chinese New Year Celebration at Lucky Envelope Brewing

Are Latinos left out of Hollywood's diversity equation?
"The fight for inclusion and better representation in Hollywood has seen some recent victories. Hollywood's first big studio movie with an all Asian cast in twenty years crazy, rich Asians was a huge hit films like Black Panther and get out were heralded both for who got to make an star on them and how well they did at the box office. But we can't quite say the same when it comes to Latino representation in casting and in the stories that Hollywood chooses to tell according to the latest data Latinos make up twenty four percent of frequent movie goers far more than the percentage of the population. But barely five percent of speaking parts in movies. I spoke with me Gupo who recently wrote about the issue for the Hollywood reporter. She began by explaining why studios aren't compelled to focus on Latinos onscreen, despite how many of them go to the movies or putting out this story. The thing that stuck out to me the most and the thing that I heard over and over again. When is studios don't necessarily feel incentivized to program to Hispanic audiences because they are considered a sure thing at the box office. They will show up to the movies, no matter who's on screen. So there is a studio perception that we do not necessarily need to cater to this audience because they will show up. No matter what what was interesting, and what was pointed out to me by one studio. Exact is that African American audiences will show up more for movies with African American costs made by African American creators and not necessarily has not been proven with Hispanic audiences. But also at the same time they have had less of an opportunity to prove that because there is less Latin next narratives on screen that are consistently coming out from the studio's movie opening this week. It's called El Chicano. It's directed by Ben Hernandez. Bray and his producer. Joe Carnahan has talked about how difficult it was to find anybody who had backed the movie, and is that kind of typical for those kinds of stories that no studio where I guess even independent distributor is willing to get on board and studios. There is not a lot of Latin next representation in executive positions. So when these creatives are going in to pitch these movies, they're pitching to white creative. Who may not understand the nuances of the story or the audience potential, but on top of that movie making has changed in recent years. They are looking more for high concept features, you know, let's stupor here on movies. It's the sci-fi features that are doing well. And there is a push for inclusion in those parts, but hasn't necessarily been seen in terms of lot next representation yet. Yeah. And I would say it's not limited to that Nina Jacobson who produced crazy, rich, Asians and the intellectual property. There was a novel. Call. Called crazy ridge Asians. She says that when she was shopping and around there was at least one producer who said I have to ask does she have to be Asian. And of course, the answer was yes. And the movie ended up being a huge hit. So how much of that is kind of institutional resistance to taking on this kind of material because there's always this bias that Hollywood wants to make these stories that are about non white characters and make them white, and they're certainly scores of stories about casting doing the exact same thing. Yes. So I was talking to Dr Christina. Ramon who is one of the researchers who works on UCLA's diversity report. And she made a very interesting point where a preconceived notion in Hollywood has to be proven. Correct only once, but it has to be proven wrong a dozen times in order for it to die. So you have to have a Black Panther. You have to have a crazy rich Asians before Hollywood wakes up and realizes that representation is not only something that is moral imperative, but also a business imperative we're talking with Lupo staff writer at the Hollywood reporter about Latinos. In hollywood. I think the other issue is say L Chicano does not do. Well at the box office this weekend. It's easy for Hollywood to look at that and say see these movies don't work, whereas they would never say that about John like an action movie if an action movie bombed so it feels as if each and every one of these movies is somehow a referendum on whether or not this kind of story can work commercially. That has been a big issue in Hollywood. There's so much pressure on these individual projects and these individual creative where if they don't succeed they are not only letting down the project, but they're letting down filmmakers who are coming up under them who are from their same culture. So it's almost as if you have a whole culture. Cher- writing on one movie and not is incredibly unfair and so much pressure. True quality is being able to try and fail and getting the opportunity to try again, not just being able to try and succeed in your article. You quote Lin Manuel. Miranda bought people know him from Hamilton. And he says Latino audiences are not a monolith we come from thirty two different countries. So what does that mean in terms of both the opportunity and the challenges of telling stories that come from such a huge swath of the globe? Yeah. So when you look at a movie like crazy, rich, Asians, it is based in one Asian culture and one story, but molten metal cultures can identify with it. And a lot of Asian movie goers went out to see it from across cultures. Whether they be Cran or Chinese or Japanese. So the same could happen for. Hispanic movie goers, actually, people are pointing to lin-manuel Miranda's upcoming movie in the heights as a possible crazy rich Asians esque moment, where it is based on his musical. And it's a story that's in a musical that's in Washington heist. And it's tells a Puerto Rican narrative, but has so much lot next representation that multiple cultures will be able to identify what the narrative.
"asian culture" Discussed on JKNews
"You have reasoning, and you have logic and argument and debate is something that is a part of their culture. Like, if you think about science, right like western res-, western civilization, like they they weren't the inventors of science, but the, but the concept of the scientific method which is trying to figure out the truth through testing and hypothesis and stuff like that. That's a part of the culture now now. Now when I'm digging further into the trying to make I'm trying to give you guys an example of how like it's like, not all white people or western people are reasonable not. All right. But it is something that is accepted in their culture, like having a family discussion, and using reasoning and and and and trying to figure out things through discussion is a part of the culture except for conservative traditional religious, white people. That's that's totally different. They have they have more of a hierarchy that's closer to traditional Asian style. Right. But modern. Educated western people are they try to figure out a solution and compromise, and they try to reason and they try to work out there the things through that. Whereas even if you're educated, and even if you go to university, and even if you go to all these things in the Asian culture, there's a strong basis of Confucianism, and that's what brings all of us. Whether you're Japanese down to Vietnamese, there's a that's where the similarity is is the we have a huge background and Buddhism, even if you're Christian today. It's a part of the culture, we evolved through this style of society building so thousands of years of Confucianism, Buddhism and all that stuff. So in the ground basis of Confucianism, there's a huge there's a huge empha-. His of respecting and obeying a thority. And there's a problem with that. Because. In the American culture. Right. It's it being a revolutionary being having an independent thought speaking your mind challenging of forty and learning through debate. And discussion that's kind of a part of the culture. It's encouraged here asking questions in class asking the teacher to further clarify all those things it's part of the culture traditional, and I noticed this from a lot of my Latino friends to is is there's a hierarchy where it's patriot. There's a dad, right? There's a mom there's a there's a structure there's a there's a there's a chain of command. And even though there is a hierarchy in white families. I would say that the hierarchy is much closer here and Asian and maybe other families like the it's much further here where. Were the for were the dad of the family or the oldest male is almost like is almost like the president the it's like, it's like god-like. And even if they might be wrong, you're not allowed to really challenge them because that's disrespectful. And to me. That's what I love also about the US or or just or just how things has changed here. It's it's they hated that traditional way of thinking because you know, sometimes you don't want to follow a dumb ass leader. And you want to be able to challenge certain things that are right, or or or doesn't make any sense. And it's good because a good leader. Here. The way you look at a good leader. Here is someone who can take criticism someone who can explain thoroughly what they're doing and be able to have their thought. That's challenged and every single time consistently every time those thoughts get challenged. They come on top because they they could they could articulate and fucking tell you everything about what they're thinking. And it's proven time and time again that they know what the fuck they're talking about. I think it makes a weak person. When you challenge what they say.

"But so they were sort of on one end of the assimilation spectrum if I can call it that. But even within the sort of smallish South Asian community where I grew up at the time, there were other of there were folks who who participated, much more actively in South Asian culture, etc. But nevertheless did not feel as if they weren't assimilated as well. Just give that as a background, because what I want to ask you is you're saying now use the word enclave that you're seeing immigrant communities across the United States, who by virtue of their size or or what are less prone or willing to assimilate. There is a great deal of subtlety and complexity at work here. Recently, you've had a conversation about the debate around affirmative action among Asian-Americans and you've had a number of folks on the left. People who believe that affirmative action is vitally important. Who've been dismayed to see that. Now when you pull Asian Americans, they are less likely to support affirmative action than in decades past and one St. forward explanation for this offered by some liberal folks who are immigration advocates is that you've seen a change in the composition of the Asian American population in which you have somewhat more affluent. Asian Americans, for example, who see affirmative action as something that is a threat to their interests to their upper mobility. And you see a change in the character of how people look at this. And then some of the discussion has been about this notion, and frankly, you know, this is a very contested notion that you have some folks, you know, who are chiefly communicating via we chat. They are part of little ethnic enclaves that are affluent ethnic enclaves by the way, but that shape their political perspectives in ways that some folks on the left feel puts them at odds with the interests of various other communities. You know, that is one example that you see on the left and then there are folks on the right who talk about these enclaves in different ways. Talking about different groups and about their isolation. But I guess my own belief is that when you're talking about the isolation of any group, whether it is a native minority or an immigrant minority, that can be a real concern because at tends to contribute to segregation and distrust, and I think that that can have knock on consequences when you're looking at the next generation as well. So I think there's a lot of subtlety and we need to be very precise about what we're talking about. So so let's explore that then a more because I mean when you talk about these ethnic enclaves another way of putting it as large more concentrated immigrant communities, and I think you, it's one can make the case that many of these quote unquote enclaves over, you know, the two hundred plus years of American history as a nation have become, you know, really important parts of the fabric of the cities that they live in. I mean, like no one segment. I'm so glad that I'm so glad you're bringing history into this because it's really important. Understand that our history shows that when you have a period when you have a lot of immigrant reply. Punishment. That is oftentimes a period when you don't have a lot of integration, it's win. The replenishment slows down that you tend to see intermingling. So consider the Greek towns and little Italy that we saw a century ago, those were flourishing, vibrant communities. They were also communities that tended not to see a lot of intermarriage with people from other ethnic groups. Now, when you saw the replenishment down after that, that's when intermarriage intermingling started become far more common. This is a pattern we see throughout history. If you look at the early decades of the American Republic, this was a time when the Napoleonic wars where actually preventing a lot of large-scale migration. So you saw these large German communities that were very big, Benjamin Franklin was worried about German speaking enclaves. But the thing is that the Napoleonic wars actually created some breathing room and then that in turn led to the kind of intermarriage and intermingling. When you see our history, the periods when you've had the most Mel. Counting and fusing of different groups have traditionally been periods when you actually haven't had those very high rates of replenishment..
