"Night, right? Great segue for me. So, Simon a Brett who's been in Bangkok for a while. Has a company called speak. It's one of the top rated tours on TripAdvisor and Page. This is actually a great safe way to get the experience without having any of the concerns about getting ripped off, etc. Etc. But he does offer nightly tours on wage Took drives you around to some of the cool and interesting sites at night and also takes you for some great food as well. I've personally done the door. It's fun and easy way. I get an introduction to the city, perfect. Yeah. I mean I think that's great because instead of trying to figure out where to go the tour is already done for you, right? And I'm sure it's pretty affordable as well, and seems like a great way to explore our city. And so let's talk about some of the things that maybe we do on the tour or just we should check out while we're in the city. Anyways, you kind of alluded to it a little bit earlier was like some of the historical sites and everything in the, in the old C. But what are some of those things that we should check out? Yeah, I kind of see that Bangkok is like an onion. So, you know, I hear from a lot of people like Bangkok. I don't know. Not that interesting. I want to go to Phuket searching. My it's too busy. It's too this too. That I really think Bangkok offers so much. It's like an onion, so many different layers to the city and so much to explore home. You know, some of the, this is pretty obvious, the place you go to see is the Grand Palace or the emerald Jade Temple. This is the most awfully site in the country. It's the most important Buddhist temple in the country, and it's absolutely stunning and beautiful. My tip here by your ticket online and you have to cover your shoulders and wear long pants, but go there for a couple of hours and just take it all in. It's a fabulous place to visit and just a second, tallest, building in Bangkok and the building with the highest Skydeck in the city Mahon Nakhon, just finished a couple of years ago. I just went up there a couple of months ago pretty spectacular building pretty awesome, roof deck, and pretty spectacular, views of the city again. Buy your ticket. Online before hiking over there, I went up for Sunset obviously. That's a great time to be going. Another tip. I mentioned that Chao praya River. This is a pretty big thoroughfare. Basically that traces the west side of Bangkok and it's near The Old City. There's tons of these giant longboats that bring computers to different fairy stations along the river and something like four twenty cents. You can jump on these boats, they're not meant to be tour boats, but in reality jump on their get a window seat or. Well, there's not Windows per se, but sit by the river and ride it for 30 minutes for 20 minutes for an hour. And then City just ride back or jump off on another station. This is like a lot of fun. I one thing I want to ask is okay. Obviously like you mentioned that the city's really big with like ten to Fifteen million people. And sometimes in those bigger cities you got to worry about pickpockets or you know, these are no such things when you're on the boat or you're on the subway and those type of things. Do you really have to watch out for like, your, your belongings or wage is a pretty safe? I would say very safe. I mean, of course there are pickpockets, are there must be. I've never had a situation like that nor am I even really heard of friends or friends of friends, who have been mugged or pickpocketed, etc, etc. The one thing Aladdin. Way, I gave that example the must-see Grand Palace. This is probably the most horsted site in the city meeting. That's where some of the scam artists are. So one of the scams in this is probably across the world. Is some tie guy. Probably speaks pretty English will come up to you and go oh, Grand Palace is closed today. Let me suggest that you go here. And of course it's never closed and he's just trying to sell you something else. So be careful of those touristy scams that can take place in the more tourist areas of publicity. Sure. And like you said, if you buy your tickets online, you already know the schedule of when it's open, anyways, so you know that for sure that it's going to be open that day. Definitely one of the things that I know that people really suck when I think about about Thailand is like a movie type fight and I actually interview somebody from Chiang Mai and he said that Bangkok is a place for The Watch movie Thai fight. Yeah, the great thing about Thailand, Thursday is we tires everywhere. There's two real stadiums with in Bangkok. One is lumpini, which is really famous that used to be like really in the city a couple of years ago, they built a newer Stadium outside of the city a little bit. The other stadium that name is I can't think of that name right now but the job The two stadiums, there's basically a fight every single night, usually alternating between the two stadiums. The thing that kind of frustrates me a little bit, is in the area, surrounding the ring, the best seats. You're basically as a tourist, you're forced to sit in this area. So there's tons of cheap seats, wage in general for hunters are not allowed to sit up there. So, in other words, you're forced to sit next to the ring, which is great for the view, but you're charged give or take $50 for the seat. Where the cheap seats are, you know, probably five or ten dollars, so just be aware of that when you do go to visit, nonetheless, you gotta go see it once because it's a off some experience down again with. Like we talked about some of the other attractions do we need to buy our tickets online ahead of time or this is something you can just walk up.

"Show. Thank you so much for today. We're talking about Bankok Thailand and it's a city I've seen in a lot of movies and heard so much about for some of my travel friends, but I haven't been there yet. So it's awesome to have you on here and I'm glad we got connected through travel, massive, excellent and wage. Cock is waiting to welcome you you're missing out on quite a bit. I can't wait to learn about it. So what's your connection to the city? Well, it started really from reading a book. So 22000, I read this book it's called The Gospel of father, Joe. It's about a priest who moves to one of the slums of Bangkok in the 1970s and really gross is this incredible. Massive outreach program to thousands and thousands of Thai people in need. I read the book and I said, you know what, I'm going to go volunteer for this guy, and that starts a whole chain of events that made me or ended up having me live part-time in that country for about seven years, such a wonderful Story, I mean I can only imagine what it what it would have been like just interacting with him and learning from him. Well there's a big difference meaning in 1970s when he moved there he literally lived in this little Shack but his whole outreach program. Has grown to, you know, service and help tens of thousands of people in Thailand. So I did get to meet him a couple of times. But I mean there's an incredibly large staff. So unfortunately I did not really interface with them too often and he's an older guys. Well, and I also felt like I didn't even want to waste her use any of this time because I view his time as so incredibly valuable over. Sure. And he's made such a profound impact on the city and and so many lives that that's just inspiring, right? An incredible story and for anybody going to Thailand off just, it gives you a great sense of the city read that book, gospel, father. Joe, it's pretty motivating to read this book will for sure. I'll put that into the show notes then so right now, you're actually in Boston a while we're recording this and everything. But what's the thing that really keeps? You going back to to Bangkok Bangkok is a city that never sleeps. The people are friendly and it's song. Diverse meaning, it's East. It's West, it's old, it's new. Just it offers really anything that you would want in this great tropical setting up a hard to beat, right? Yeah, I've been happy right on. Okay, so like we talked about you're in Boston right now and save. Anybody that's here in the United States and wants to fly and and travel to Bangkok like how do we get Thursday? It's pretty straightforward. I mean, it's definitely a long fight and it's not the cheapest, you should be targeting, give or take, $1,000, you can find the fights as cheap as $600 round trip and of course you can pay a lot more especially if you're going business class. But you kind of two different routes in general, if you're in the US, you can go east and go through the Gulf States, like, Emirates or Qatar, or you can go west and you really have a lot more options this way as well, Cafe. China Eastern Jal. K a l. So really ton of options, just go start with Skyscanner and start screening and see what's a good fit for you there, right? Yeah. That makes a lot of sense. All right, so if we are planning a trip, are there any certain requirements? I know some countries require shots or, or visas or those types of things are there certain requirements if we're going to travel there? Well, in terms of Genesis and shots, not really most countries from the West will get Thirty Days upon arrival. You can relatively easy extend that 30 more days to give you 60 and in general. There's no proof of vaccine. Well, that might change but right now there's no need for any special vaccinations, but I would check the CDC website because we should have the normal shots. You should have like, have a happy typhoid, etc, etc. Okay. Yeah, that's good to know. All right. So say that we were fly in and we arrived at the big airport there. I know it's a dog. Big International Hub but from there if we're going to get from the airport to the city, do we take public transportation? Is there like a a bus or a monorail or Subway? Something like that or should we rent a car or just do bur? Ya. I think the best advice Lee I can give you is don't rent a car. I've driven a handful of times in Bangkok and I simply it's it's really really stressful. The traffic is nightmarish, and it's also a really convoluted City. Meaning it's like the complete opposite of New York City's grid. So stay away from the hard unless you're leaving Bangkok and then that makes sense, exploring the rest of the country by car. If that's what you're into in terms of getting from the airport into em City. Me personally, I always take a taxi now this taxi can be like an hour-long ride. Meaning there's tons of traffic in the airports pretty far out Of the city. But the great thing with Bangkok is its cost structure. Meaning give or take this ride, that can take up to an hour is about 10 to $15. So after you get off the Fourteen hour flight, you got a couple of bags. It's just easier for me to wave down the taxi. Jump in there and sit in the air conditioner off. Nonetheless, there's buses but that's really not a great option. They do have this train, which will connect you to the subway system, but that again, we'll take you off about an hour as well. And of course, that's only a couple of dollars. So I would say, if you could afford the 15 bucks, take the taxi. If not, you can take the express train wage will lead you into the city where you can jump on the subway for a couple of bucks, right? That makes sense. Yeah, I would definitely Splurge for the taxi especially if you're with me. I normally travel with my kids or or my wife as well. By the time you add it up, you really not saving any money doing the the subway and the train versus getting your own private taxi. And you get the AC which is, which is key cuz we'll talk about the weather there in a minute, right? The other thing is, I know, you know, obviously the US Uber and Lyft are are really popular but I think in in the agent, the south east and Asian countries, grab is the company. They they use kind of uber correct, you know, your stuff away. So at one point a couple of years ago there was both Uber and grab a uber from my understanding sold out to grab. So make sure you put the grab app onto your phone before you head out to Thailand in Bangkok because that can be a really helpful way of getting around,.
Ryan Vizzions: Van Lifing with a camera
"Ron last year about how your journey into photo. Journalism started in twenty tenure father taking his life the year prior. And you and you take yourself on a journey across the world where you ended up in bangkok in the center of a protest and that and that's where it all started really further graphically for you today with talking about being the road once more. Is that as a as a photographer where you'll frankly happiest on the road. It's it seems to me like you. Yes i believe that it may be being on the road. But i think it's a little bit deeper that i think i have a passion as most photographers for exploring and finding new environments. And that's really what i'm searching for. I think with this project. I wanna find something. Nobody's ever seen before that's kind of what many people strive for. And that's what i'm in search of is is the never seen shots. So what would what is the project then. Is it landscape. Is it fun. Aunts is it photojournalism because the romans threw that are are. That's a great question When i first had the concept of living in a van with my dog and traveling the united states documenting all fifty states. I had this grander idea of photographing. What the country is in who we are as a nation and the communities that make up this nation and so the original concept for this book making was people in like who. We are well when i got on the road. I realized i was on the road during a pandemic in a very polarized country. The politics and i kept finding myself being pushed or gravitating towards rather nature. And so over the course. It's been some humanist photography some photojournalism for instance i the inauguration in dc and photographed a few different pieces but a lot of it has been focused on the landscaping in nature and wildlife. And for me. I tried to tie that altogether because the climate environment is really important to me. And so so it's ever evolving project. I guess well when we first told you you adjust building the venue just converting whatever whatever you needed to do. I think there's been to vance. Isn't there there. There has been to vans. i am now in my second man monk to mark to completely different van. It's newer. I learned the hard way about buying an old van. Romanticizing driving around in old van. I was rear ended outside los angeles last year. And since my van was thirty years old they totaled it out and so i was stuck in a hotel in the suburbs of angeles. All my belongings in trash van and a joke yard. And i had to make the decision of whether or not i wanted to go home with my tail between my legs or if i wanted to take out a lease on a new vehicle and continued going and i decided that i knew if i went home. I would probably never do this

Myanmar police fire at demonstrators, killing two
"Contaminated. I'm Hardy Milwaukee in Dallas, heading overseas now to Man Mar protesters back on the streets, a day after two demonstrators were killed by police and the military in Myanmar's second largest city, Mandalay. Michael Sullivan reports from Bangkok and neighboring Thailand. The protest and the arrest of protesters by the military continued again today, neither side willing to back down after the bloodiest day since the protests began more than two weeks ago. On Saturday. At least two people were killed in Myanmar's second city, Mandalay. When security forces opened fire with live ammunition. Dozens more were wounded. Several 1000 people turned out again today in Mandalay and in Myanmar's main city, Yangon, demanding the coup makers step down.

Myanmar coup: Military blocks Facebook for sake of 'stability'
"Myanmar because today the military leaders who sees parents who are Monday blocked access to Facebook by father dominant social media platform in the country on most people's only access. Two news officials said they were shutting it out for several days for the sake of stability is the reaction of one university student in Yangon, who also has a job in I T blocking Facebook today means that the freedom of young people is restricted. From now on. I am a student how education has been suspended and business frozen amid the ongoing pandemic. Military coup has started costing us our jobs, and our education is now in trouble. Southeast Asia correspondent Jonathan Head is following developments from Bangkok. He's been telling me why this act of censorship is such a big deal for Facebook is almost uniquely dominant in Mama, and that's a peculiarity of the way in which modern telecommunications arrived very late in the country. Facebook offered people the chance to Rome using Facebook to surf the net or Sir Facebook free of data charges, and it just became the default browser for the whole country. It is the essential way in which people access information on communicate with each other. So this is a pretty big deal. Interesting that the military is says they're only gonna do it for four days. Think there would be a very angry backlash of it lasted longer and I suspect if it is for that short period, what they're trying to do at the moment is pre empt any early attempts to organize. Resistance to the coup on a lot of Burmese now rapidly trying tow discover other networks. There's been a surge of people going to Twitter. I've noticed a lot of people, Burmese people I know go on to signal All these various alternative acts, people discussing online how they can get around other attempts by the member authorities because they're now targeting VPN virtual private networks that people use to get around there blocking attempts. I've seen Burmese friends looking into the sorts of technology that people in places like China have had to learn to use because of official censorship. So that's resistance within the country. The U. N secretary general is calling for international pressure against the military. But I mean the military survive for years as a pariah state, and they They did. I'm in the argument about how effective sanctions were the first time round. They were applied in the 19 nineties and then at the start of the millennium is still going on. Many people view them as counterproductive is a blunt instrument. That largely heard poorer Burmese people and the military with their huge conglomerates linked to dodgy businesses like illegal logging and jade mining. We just unaffected. It is arguable that the isolation embarrassed the generals, and that was one of the motives for them. Opening up and allowing AH, form of democracy toe take root in Mama. I think if they're going to go for sanctions, they'd have to be targeted Sanctions and the problem there is that they've already applied those Tow. Those most involved in the atrocities against the revenge is there happened to be the very same generals who carried out this coup? Don't think of international pressure is going to make much difference at all at this stage. Governments have to say what they have to say The U. N has to say what it does. This is a very shocking coup right after a very decisive election results. But in the end, you know the generals will not want to go back to the isolation that almost destroyed the country in the seventies and eighties. They will want some kind of engagement. They'll start with their neighbors who are more willing to engage fairly quickly. I would imagine, and, of course, China.
Myanmar's ousted leader charged after military coup
"In Myanmar, the military is prosecuting the country's civilian leader, Aung Song Sushi. This development comes just two days after soldiers ousted the democratically elected government in a coup. Plunging me and mar into turmoil. The charges against on songs uchi are obscure, but she could be banned from holding political office ever again. The BBC's Jonathan head is with us now on Skype in Bangkok and Jonathan tell us more about this charge on songs who'd she accused of illegally importing walkie talkies? Well, I mean, she's been the head of state for the last five years. She has a very significant security detail. This isn't her home in the capital, Never doors where she lives. When she's in government. It's a very absurd charge. Everybody in Yemen will see this for what it is, which is a transparently cynical maneuver. By the military to disqualify her from office. This is their big challenge. You've got to remember they have bean Badly with this woman for more than 30 years, trying to neutralize her as a political opponent, and they failed every time every election on San Souci has contested and remember, she contested her first election way back in 1990. She won with a massive majority. And they need to find some way. If they're going to hold an election again, and they're promising people they will eventually of getting her out of the picture. Because her popularity remains undimmed inside Myanmar. The election, her party one last November was largely a result of her personal popularity. It would seem almost laughable, wouldn't it if it weren't so serious? These charges that he's facing that she could spend three years in prison if she's convicted. Have we heard from her? Do we know where she is at this point? Neither she nor the president who was her ally have been heard from, and I think there's a lot of worry about just how hard line this military hunter is going to be in the history of Myanmar has been very unhappy. The military has been both brutal, repressive. Very isolationist, a swell in the past. It's a different age. Now. Of course, you know, younger Burmese have known 10. Years of freedom on Dave got these days. Social media when I used to go into Myanmar 20 years ago. But it was firmly under military rule. There were no mobile phones at all. There were barely any phones. There was no Internet s O in a different age. It might be much harder for the military to impose on a very angry country. People who mostly voted for insensitivity on the military. Has any given itself one year so far of emergency rule to try and fix things so that its own party can do better in elections, and that was the grievance that started this group. They're saying that you know there must have been cheating because the military's party did disastrously badly in last November's election. Well, Jonathan, you say the military plans to do this for one year, but could that be a cover for something that ends up being much, much longer term? Nobody's gonna bet it's just one year when they remember what happened in 1990. The military held an election, then a much younger and sense. Uchi ran shops them by winning and they talked then about restoring democracy, and it took more than 20 years before Myanmar moved back to elected governments. Think don't think anybody could bear to consider that they might do that again, but it's a very different era. Now. I think the military for all they have a very xenophobic mindset that's often very hard for outsiders to fathom, are probably pragmatic enough to know they can't repeat what they did in the past. It's not clear whether they gotta clear game plan on us. You know whether they really believe they can hold an election in the year to some degree, you know they're making it up as they go along, You said the people of Myanmar are angry. Is there a possibility that they could apply any pressure to the military? Would that just be incredibly dangerous? I mean, what kind of power to the people of Myanmar have that's going to be interesting test. People in Yemen ovary well that in the past When people have come out on the streets, and it was only ever a moments of acute economic distress. They did it. The military basically shot them down in very large numbers. This military is brutal. Even by the standards of brutal militaries around the world. They will kill people and people know it. What was seen in the beginning is people using social media calling for campaigns on social media. We've seen doctors starting some kind of a boycott, not wanting to work with the military authorities. It's been a real shock this coup. I don't think many people saw it coming, and not many people believe that the military will be so brazen. After such a stunning election victory, for instance, Uchi said, people have got to work out what they'll do. But in the end, you know the military started the transition to democracy more than a decade ago because they recognize that the country was in a disastrous state. Under 50 years of military rule. Those same military guys have just launched this coup. They've got to figure out a way back to some kind off. Normal elected government is just not clear. How they could do that, while retaining their own kind of monopoly on power, which they seem to want to do. The BBC's Jonathan head in Bangkok, Jonathan, Thank you, thank you.

Podcast is great talking with you. Thank you hope. You're having a great start of the new year and twenty one fed. Who like to hear more about. Would you particularly how you doing media in order very interesting things about technology. Your life ended in this world of the identity. If i knew that myself. I think it's quite unlikely scenario that panned out spent. Maybe you also heard that famous. Commencement speech from steve jobs. In haver that you only can connect the dots in hindsight. You can't connect them living your life. Forward and limited tried to connect these dots and you mentioned a couple of things how they volved in my life. Indeed in my first life as i tend to say i was sitting on the other side of our conversation i was a radio. Presenter was a journalist by tim my highlight. There was a war correspondent for german public radio in macedonia during the kosovo. Nine hundred ninety nine. I did this kind of on the side of my university education for economic management and then post graduation. I was more focusing on the media management side of things. And as you're right they said. I was head of marketing of anti by on three one of the top ten german radio stations. After that's the new economy came. If you might recall that time the boom and the bust very was Director entertainment at that time famous and infamous search engine with a variety of other services lycos europe and really saw a lot of this bust of this new economy which maybe take a year off in two thousand two and spent a year traveling the world in a sabbatical during all sorts of things. I always wanted to do from doing a pilot's license motorbike licence mode license. Learning languages like russian spanish during my tie and then i came back to munich and well. This was my first immigration then. Going to bangalore india. And that's very in fact i thought it. By entrepreneurial journey in businesses like e commerce selling jewelry on ebay then moving into an outsourcing consultancy for bangolo has been very instill is very famous for and then starting in detroit angel invest in into indian companies with these angel andrew a cold mumbai angels so an imperative is lots of back and falls into you mentioned that also. I helped build an echo beta in munich. Owned by a hot spring publisher called spring except where we created some thirteen companies in the span of four years. Then i really truly moved back to munich for a short period of time. Very co founded a social media agency and that crowd funding platform venture ag which we then sold a year later to a publicly listed company. Then came i second immigration. This time with my family to bangkok and then kind of opportunity presented itself better typical soon network connections to join the data flow group at that time it was headquartered in hong kong meanwhile headquartered in dubai and data flow is doing esp primary source verification. Since two thousand six. And i was given a quite broad mandate look at. How can this be more digitized. And let's face it. I'd say verification is not the most sexy topic on the face of this earth but maybe it's also reason why nobody has looked at that. So i tried to exactly that so i kind of became a co founder of true profile. I oh really put the individual and implement into the center so we launched the first version of something called data flow plus dot org some four years ago and that subsequently into a troop profile. I o which. I'm now running in a shared responsibility with my esteemed koha alejandro coca from spain. Who is focusing on the commercial business part while i focus on the product and tech parts so in hindsight maybe it is possible to the dotes. I'd say my personal motivation here in the common thread has been never stop being curious. Never stop learning and never stop willing to make a move into a new uncharted territory. I can see. I can see many changes in geography and also in the business. If i may just add. I think it's really interesting. Because listen to some eighty percent of your podcast. I learned a hell of a lot. And i think what you're doing. You're doing a great service of building. This industry of digital identity from identity for people identity for technical system like api is than also what our policies locations or. What is the identity of a legal entity. So i found this area's always very separate and you're kind of bringing them under one umbrella where they belong. And i hope that maybe today. I can contribute. Another facets around verified credentials which are useful in particular in an hr context into your realm of digital

What's next for the Asia-Pacific?
"Today's special edition of the globalist we are going to focus on asia and what two thousand and twenty one might hold for the region. The obvious answer might seem and will hopefully be almost by definition what with one thing and another a vast improvement but even when asia does not find itself at the epicenter of a global health crisis it remains a complicated part of the world bringing their hostages to fortune to this look ahead to ages. Next twelve months are monocle. Hong kong bureau chief. James chambers monica's. Tokyo bureau chief. Fiona wilson a little later on monaco's bangkok correspondent gwen. Robinson will join us. But first to james and fiona fiona. Let's start with you. In japan as we mentioned in that introduction a new prime minister in office seeking to fill the big shoes and follow the tough act of shinzo are has yet figured out. What kind of prime minister he's going to be is a very good question. I mean i think he's been quite difficult for serger. Falling shinzo obey. Shinzo abe's for all his faults. You know longest serving prime minister in japanese history. So you go quiet trot record. He knows how to win elections. And you know. He survived an awful lot of ups and downs. Scandals also had to deal with the pandemic and ultimately how to deal with illness as well so yeah so quite challenging to come into that role. He started off pretty well. I think his ratings quite good. But i think as people have seen ways handled the pandemic Impressed is ratings have dropped. There's also the issue about the olympics. Will it happen waiting to happen. And i think so. Go really backing this. Huge domestic tourism tourism campaign encouraging. People around the country has gone down pretty badly although it has to be said Tens of millions of people have been guy around the country so they liked that bit of it. But so i think it's quite a tough time for him and interesting. He has to have an election by next autumn. And i think he's in for a pretty rough ride few under just to follow that up. You did the mention the oh word. If there is one thing that japan hopes it can look forward to in two thousand and twenty one it is the two thousand twenty Tokyo postponed because of the obvious right now on new year's day. How likely do they look. It really depends on you. Talk to to be honest. The government would love it to happen. They really wanted to happen dog to the saying we absolutely have to vaccinate everyone. And that's not guaranteed yet. Japan's rollout of vaccinations will be in the spring. And they say you know. We'll have everyone backs in asia by the summer. And if not. I think they are going to have a problem on their hands. There are so many vested interest in the olympics in definitely. The government is under pressure from tv companies. Advertises they want it to happen. Population is still quite lukewarm. I think many people feel it puts this unnecessary pressure on the country. At a time. When is trying to deal with the pandemic. we're still dealing with that joins in hong kong or bring you in now. It being new year's day let's at least out Attempting optimism As we were just discussing. Japan has one great big blue ribbon event to look forward to hopefully in two thousand and twenty one. Two thousand and twenty was a tough year for hong kong for the same reasons. It was a tough year for everybody but for other reasons. Besides is there anything in particular vet. People in hong kong are looking forward to this year. Yes well we've had a rough couple of years here in hong kong so You know when you've hit rock awesome. Which i think that's not hong kong. Has i mean the only way to go his up. So i guess people are looking at s- an economic recovery an a return to business as usual in terms of an making money and getting on that side of things but In looking ahead the the rest of the year. I mean there are few big dates to To look forward to the the first one would be at the end of this month on the polls in january when the the uk's visa essentially for the hong kong people comes into play and up to three million on congas could suddenly decamp to britain. So if that happens if the floodgates opened not lovely be a huge event we've oils essentially being stuck in vung most of twenty twenty so It's been difficult to town at the moments How big that exodus will be. And there's no no re- odds on dejean that which you know. Every time i do meet with hong kong peasant they do generate trying to ask me once. Lights live in the uk Just like an schooling an election. Step in where they should live. What's baath liken. Is it better than oxford as there is. There is a genuine interest. But i guess we're waiting to see how many people actually all through with all of the with these These moves

The Power of Goodness |
"Lost friday when i gave a talk here to the talk was finished. People left tie went to the airports. Go to thailand and just came back this afternoon. I sound which my trips between these friday night talks but the trip over to thailand was as part of the waste sack sermonise ways is one day of the year in my the full moon nights of my which happens to be tonight in the sky. You see the full moon and his mocks birth enlightenment. Final passing away voters a huge so many throughout the world and being popular mankind. Get invited and have to go to many places to celebrate many ways. Sex and part of the seventies was a huge seventy in bangkok. Every last year was in a hanoi. This year in bangkok united nations-sponsored way sack ceremony. An one so. I was over there representing australia. And it was very inspiring to not just have ceremonies with many of the most senior and powerful monks and scholars announce but also to have the opportunity to use his great buddhist teaching to solve some of the bigger problems of the world. So we talked about how we can use what is not just to help a human being achieved more peace in their life no interest in the individual and avoid sometimes saying the put us image just about the individual how you can really happier more peaceful more free but also to make use of these put his teachings in the international arena so we did talk about things like the global economic crisis. And those of you who think that these conferences now have no effect her soon as we finished our three day conference the share market rose throughout the world love. The evidence is out there. We're told about the political crisis in the world and look the last few days. Thailand has been peaceful again so maybe we should take responsibility for these things but one thing which we did discuss which is going to be. The topic of this talk tonight is not only in the individual theater. What also in the national theaters of our world. How much we underestimate the power of goodness. It's not hard power. It's not soft power. It's how of ethics and virtue and goodness which has a huge effect on this planet. Everybody keeps on say the reason for the current economic crisis which is about to hear is because of our conference. Of course. The reason why is about to heal. Africa is because the problem was because of access greed. Not looking at the proper things in life. I mean how much money to people need to be happy and well you want to know how much money a person needs to be really happy. Go look at me or the monk sitting next to me. We've got absolutely nothing and we're very happy. It's a great symbol like among all none of what is what is non one of the most important parts of them one. We've few possessions. We rely that competence. People have all sorts of stuff. You know all sorts of gifts prime minister of thailand. Deputy prime minister this great person network. They've they've only source of gifts. But what you do some mark when you receive all these things you say thank you very much and give it to somebody else so i never any of that stuff home with me because my home in my heart is peaceful and free. I don't want clot it up and say way that when you get a gift what a wonderful thing it is somebody gives you a gift very kind of you. Love happiness when they give you something. So what do you do next. You give it to someone else and they get a lot of happiness and they give it to someone else. Please don't store possessions this. Pass it around like passing the paso and eventually working to somebody who really needs an appreciate it. Then they can keep here. What a wonderful thing. It is not to keep things but to be part of a static but it's this process is dynamic active giving and receiving enjoying the gifts and enjoy the process of giving an a passing it to someone else impossible to someone else in passing it to someone else so one gift keeps going round and round and round making many many people happy and eventually and it's happened to me and the gift i gave someone they say we've got a president for you are temper this a gift like if someone else about three weeks ago this happened see as the law of power walk out cubs literally but we all know that that sort of agreed thing is this you get a gift you wanna keep it you have money you think it's yours you have a house you don't share it what things for any way they are for sharing for enjoying not just by yourself. It's not very nice enjoying things by yourself. in fact it's almost impossible to enjoy it by yourself for sharing it. It's a wonderful thing to you. Get much more happiness that way as they say in business you get far more bang for your bucks when you share your box. So you'll know that greed is a why are people so just greedy and why are people just like in politics. We also talked about the political problems in the world. Why people angry. What was the point of getting anxious. Somebody does that help at all
Young protesters in Thailand risk much to demand change from military, monarchy
"Escalated in thailand. This week we're called to reform the monarchy are getting louder this morning. Police blocked rush hour traffic to stop demonstrators. They said from breaking the law out. This isn't the first time this year there have been protests against king maha vajiralongkorn who took the throne for years ago. He's one of the richest royals in the world and a playboy. He's churned through four wives and spends the majority of his time living in a german hotel amid lots of women in the past few years he's taken steps to consolidate power leading mostly younger student campaigners to demand the monarchy become more accountable and transparent yet eating suggesting these reforms comes with a hefty price. Thailand has one of the strictest lese majeste laws in the world criticizing. The royal family is punishable by up to fifteen years in jail yet. It's a law that people are increasingly willing to break yesterday evening. After left the protest side there was a pipe. Bomb in the protests in front of parliament happens that we could go also that were six protesters being treated for gunshot wounds. A man was arrested. So it's a very unstable situation. Tom felix young writes about thailand for the economist and is based in bangkok. At the same time. One has to see that the students are in a different position because many of them are the kids off the bangkok establishment. So the hope here some say is that you don't go around killing your own children what do you mean how is the makeup of these protests. Now different the biggest difference. Is that the kids on the streets. Some of the math fifteen there are university students as well but they are incredibly young. And if you were looking for a sentence to describe what's going on out there they are fearless. Fear is gone. And i say that because the legs majeste laurels the roy. Defamation in this country. I'd incredibly harsh. And they have been applied in the past so every time kids go out there and demonstrates some of them seeking out of the house of their parents they are committing a criminal offence and they are risking ending up in jail and yet no one really seems to care so what you see now when you go and went to observe protests yesterday is all sorts of tones and abused director directly at the head of state which is something that has happened in the past but not in the way that it is now. And why is this upsurge of animosity against the head of state king. So his father passed away in two thousand sixteen and since he seems to the throne taken a lot of steps to concentrate power in his hands. So there's been a shift from watts once looked as a relatively normal constitutional monarchy to more absolutes attack monarchy. The has changed the crown property bureau law which essentially said previously that these assets are being held in trust for the people for the nation and now with this law changed. The king has direct control over these acids and they actually if you look at shares in companies. It's no longer. The crown property bureau owning is the name of the king the students and many people who sympathize with them on our asking. Well what is his old about these assets odds and we want to see a reversal. What is it that the protesters are demanding here so the three months initially many months ago that they wanted to change the constitution basically a more democratic thailand. The second one they wanted to give it to speak to freely and not face arrests and the third one which is by far the most controversial is a reform of the monarchy now in recent months more and more the last demand has become the most prominent to the extent that even neutral observers here referred to these protests no longer as pro-democracy protests but anti monarchy protests and what likelihood that what the protesters are demanding will actually be met. I mean what chances for actual a change to the monarchy. Well if you look at the original three demands the one of the demands was that they wanted essentially to express themselves freely without landing in jail. Now we use the opposite. Now you see a hardening of stance on the part of the establishment on that from the students are not getting anywhere. The second part is that that was a whole unto last week that the constitution might be mended and made more progressive. That door now seems closed because the crew military royalist government coalition government. They have a majority in parliament. One proposed in particular which mirrored of the demands of the students was voted down so there is no way now through the parliamentary process to bring about change and on the third demand. It is pretty clear now that this heading for a confrontation and everybody knew that because the way that paolo is acquired exercised and hells in. Thailand is dri up for debate. You say this is heading for a confrontation but it sounds as if the confrontation kind of already here. The students don't have any recourse left either in the protesting over real constitutional reform. So where do you see this going. One thing that is really worrying is that it's all it is perceived to be now this one dimensional quest for essentially getting rid of the monarchy in its current state or modernizing whatever it is but all the other things the original demands and are now in the background and what that means for the students i think is that they will find it very difficult to build a broader alliances entice society that will allow them to carry on with this hand. I do not see any fundamental change happening in the near future

"Airline food possibly the most maligned element of the travel experience nobody likes airline food is certainly don't like it. But apparently, in Bangkok, they do because Thai Airways have just taken one of the office cafeterias in Bangkok and converted it into a pop up restaurant and they figured it out with airline seats. Even if fourteen airline seats, they've made it look like the interior of an airplane including the airline seats, the staff of walking around and cabin crew uniforms and I think it's brilliant on a number of different levels. First of all, let's get rid of the old stock, the the food stock on hand second, they get to generate revenue third they get a great pr story out of it like we're talking about Diane's bring covered extensively around the world in various news outlets. Where we three four it's a positive story. It's not a negative story which we normally associated with the airlines and five and six. There's going to be six five I. think it's a potentially good market research tool. You could actually use it to start getting customer feedback on different types of food and different varieties of food different menus, a food, and the six one I think is at shows tire ways to be a bit fun a bit quirky, even innovative. And all of those things I think lead to a very, very positive brand image coming out of this temporary pop up. So I reckon it's brilliant. I'll put a link to a couple of stories on that in leaked comments below go and check it out I. Think it's brilliant. What could you do with your business for Papa or who could you get the pop up in Your Business? You know I love POPs spoken about him before Taio is pop in Bangkok. Brilliant already that is it for tonight I do think if your time and I will be back again tomorrow. See..

"Several 1000 students chair speakers on a large stage, but Thomas at universities sprawling out of town campus. In the two months since Thailand ended, it's covered, 19 locked down, students have revived and expanded their anti government protests. With smaller rallies almost every day in some part of the country, their grievances are familiar and widely shared the military's involvement in politics, a constitution weighted against opposition parties. The harassment of political activists. With the economy tanking in the absence of foreign tourists. There is no shortage of anger, but this protest, though another issue moved centre Stage One ties usually avoid. The monarchy. Ah lawyer Anon Nampa, who had been the first to break the taboo a week before called for an honest public discussion of Thailand's most powerful institution. That happens in the mind. The end of the rally, a young woman stepped forward dramatically through clouds of dry eyes and read out a 10 point manifesto complaining about royal intervention in politics and demanding a complete overhaul of the monarchy, limiting its powers on its spending. Nothing like it has been heard before in public here, where the monarchy is officially held to be sacred and untouchable. Guantanamo, Japan and international relations professor at Chulalongkorn University. Has watched her students become ever more radical in their views. You know Thailand, they're not, you know, that is a very extremely sensitive issue. You may be prosecuted by the law. Between the monarchy and our only witness. So the official view that the monarchy is above politics. Young people don't believe that anymore. Don't believe anybody has the difference from the heroine's generations. The students say that access to social media has opened their eyes to the reality of Thailand's power structure. We have to try too. Start talking about it, making it a new norm for the society that it's okay to talk about the money. The previous generation got inducted by this state media and the state education for a very long time. Our generation is like the 1st 1 to really know what is going on the government comprised of conservative royalists and military men, who have pledged their whole lives to defend the monarchy. Seems unsure how to react Time Minister pray Oh channel teacher said they would investigate thoroughly looking for any group that might be instigating the students finding out what the real intentions are. They can protest, he said. But we will check whether they've broken the law. Theo end of last week 1/3 activist leader was quite literally dragged away. And arrested on sedition charges. Is a prevailing fear here, but the security forces will eventually be ordered to put down the protests didn't deter thousands more from joining the largest demonstration yet this weekend. Bangkok's symbolically important democracy monument. Thiss was a lighter, more humorous affair than Thomas sat with a more diverse crowd. References to the monarchy was turned down. Anon. Nampa was there now on bail after being arrested, So did he fear that force would inevitably be used to suppress the movement because it has so often in the past in Thailand? You don't believe they'll dare do that, he said, because if they do, they'll be killing young people 15 to 30 years old. King watcher. Alongkorn returned to Thailand briefly last week for a rare visit from Germany, where he stayed throughout the covert 19 crisis a decision some ties have compared unfavorably to their situation under lock down. In keeping with the monarchy's official status, he said nothing publicly about the protests. Everyone in Thailand is wondering how the palace and its backers in the military will respond.

"Hello words welcome to another episode of the podcast called the dictionary. The only podcast in the world where somebody is reading the entire dictionary. He is so weird. All right the first word for this episode. Oh you know what wait? There's a holiday. There's a holiday. It's a very very important holiday today. What is it I gotTa bring it up on my phone. It is called It is Maha share a rotten tree. Shiva Rotary. It is a Hindu holiday I don't know what that is. I can click on this link This year does last year into holiday. What is it It's not a public holiday. Businesses have normal opening hours. Thank you for telling me do. Are you gonNa tell me what it is? Nope but I hope you have a very happy Maha Shiva Rotary That was absolutely not meant to be making fun of it at all. I just remembered there was something on the twenty-first and I read it and I'm Kinda curious what that holiday is but I'm not Hindu so I don't know all at the first word is Bangkok B. A. N. G. K. O K. It is a noun from nineteen sixteen a hat woven of fine palm fibre in the Philippines. This is from It means a fine Straw. So maybe they use to use Straw fine Straw to make these hats. It is and they were made in Bangkok Thailand. Next we have mangle. It is a noun from seventeen. Eighty seven one a stiff usually ornamental bracelet or anklet slipped a slipped or clasped on a Bengal. There was a band. Were they in the seventies or the eighties called the bengals. Visit an all women band I think it was and are they the ones who did walk like an Egyptian. Maybe or I am a terrible child. Who was L- living in the eighties? they probably were a lot of Bangla Jewelry. number two an ornamental disc that hangs loosely as on a bracelet. This is a Hindi word. Banglaee Which is interesting because I just talked about a holiday. A Hindu Hindi Holiday Hindi holiday who? That's fun phrase So yeah I mean I think if you see images of people from that part of the world There is often a lot of sort of dangling. Bangla Jewelry So we probably just stole it from that all right next. We have a bang on two words. It's an adjective from nineteen thirty six chiefly British. And it means exactly correct or appropriate. You are bang on with that description of that thing. You've said next. We have bangs disease with a Capital Bay. Be Bay be This is a noun from Circa nineteen twenty nine. The Synonym is Bruce. Laos's so the word cell is in their Bruce closys specifically contagious abortion of cattle caused by a Bruce Ella and the scientific name is Bruce. Ella abortus why have no idea what this is about? Something about cattle Killing cattle killing. Some something it is from Bernard L. F. Bang. That was his last name. He died in nineteen thirty two and he was a Danish veterinarian. So I hope you're cattle. Don't get Bang's disease next. We Have Bang tail so this was mentioned in the last episode when we were talking about. Bangs you know the hair the hair style And that said that it was probably short for Bang Tail which means Short Tail. And then here we have the actual definition By the way it's a noun from nineteen twenty one and it's a synonym The synonym is racehorse. So I'm thinking that they would cut the tails of the horses short Because again here it says it's from Bang tail which means short tail So they probably cut their tail short. Maybe for you know for some stupid racing purposes to you know. Oh Yeah Horse doesn't need its tail. I'm really hoping they just cut the hair short but honestly they probably cut the whole tail short knowing what people do to animals which is ridiculous So yeah they probably were like. Oh well this horse can go faster if I cut its tail. So I'm going to cut its tail. It's going to be called a bang tail enough about that. Next is bang up. There is a hyphen. It is an adjective from eighteen. Ten and it The synonym is first rate as in a bang-up job and next we have bang-up again but there is no hyphen. This is a verb from eighteen. Eighty six to cause extensive damage to like banged up my car. Oh man once. I saw my car. I was at my parents house and the car was parked across the street and down a little bit and I looked at the car from the porch. My parents porch and it looked exactly in the bumper. Like somebody had hit it. There was this huge dent. Must have been. I don't know a foot wide or something. Something notice noticeable for many many feet away house like who hit our car. How did we not hear that the car had been hit and so I walked over there and it turned out that it was just the way the light was hitting and lights and lights and shadows were hitting the curve of the bumper because it was right on the corner of the bumper and I was like who banged up car? See I'm so good at these All right next we have Banney B. A. N. I. It is the plural of the third form of the word ban We were that awhile ago all right next. We have banish. This is a verb from the fourteenth century Just just transitive one to require by authority to leave a country. We will banish you because you are a bendit number two to drive out or remove from a home or place of usual resort or continuance number. Three to clear away. Synonym is dispel as in his discovery. Banishes society and that is a quote from. This is an interesting first name. It's probably not their real first name. Stringfellow Barr what if your name was stringfellow. Would you make somebody call you by your first name or your whole name all the time? I would never let somebody say Mr Bar. I'd say you have to call me by my full name. Stringfellow Barr what's your middle name. Rainbow Dolphin Let's see Bashar is a noun and banishment is also a noun and we have some synonym information. Banish exile deport transport mean to remove by from a state or country banish implies compulsory removal from a country. Not necessarily one's own as in banished for seditious activities exile may imply compulsory removal or an enforced or voluntary absence from one's own country as in a writer who exiled himself for political reasons deport implies sending out of the country and alien who has illegally entered or whose presence is judged inimical to the public welfare As in illegal aliens will be deported. We're not going to get into a conversation about people who are in the country illegally transport implies sending a convicted criminal to an overseas penal colony as in a convict who was transported to Australia. Well that's a weird example but I mean it's a little bit too on the nose. Don't you think that supposedly a Britain transported all of their convicts to Australia and those are the white people who then populated Australia and who I think murdered probably and treated very badly all the Iraq aboriginal people. Oh we're terrible Okay we're GONNA talk about some Etymology This is middle English from anglo-french Bennis which is a stem of by near of Germanic origin. Akin to the old high German Bonan which means to command. And there's more at the word ban next we have bannister one or two ends. It is a from sixteen forty one one a. a handrail with its supporting posts. One be synonym is handrail. To Synonym is the number to definition for balancer. Bana stirred with an E. D. is an adjective next. We have banned Jax B. A. N. J. A. x. It is a transitive verb from nineteen thirty. Nine it is chiefly Irish. It's not something that we see. Usually here synonyms are damage and ruin. Also the Synonym Smash Band Jax. I really want to hear this in context Any of my Irish listeners. Please call my google voice number. Leave me a message using ban. Jacks in The sense and or you can also leave me an email or tweet me or something next. We have Banjo. It is a noun from seventeen. Thirty nine a musical instrument with a drumline body a fretted neck and usually four or five strings which may be plucked or strummed and Banjo. List is a noun. This it says this is probably of African origin akin to the Kimbundu word mom Sorry for my pronunciation. First of all KIMBUNDU IS K. I. M. B. U. N. D. U. And then the word is Banja so it's M. B. A. N. Z. A. And that is a similar instrument to the Banjo so we probably stole their word Let's see what do I have to say about Banjos? We'll talk about that later next. We have Banjo clock. It is two words. It's a noun from nineteen o three a pendulum clock whose shape suggests a Banjo I probably have seen these but I had no idea. They were called Banjo clocks. Who decided that they're gonNa make a clock look like a weight is the pendulum look like a Banjo or does the clock look like Banjo. Who SHEEP PENDULUM? I think it's the Banjo no a pendulum. That looks like a Banjo. Which I Guess Makes Sense O K Now. We are in the last word for this episode. It is the I form of Bank B. A. N. K. it is a noun from the thirteenth century. One a mound pile or ridge raised above the surrounding level as one a piled up mass of cloud or fog one B and undersea elevation rising especially from the continental shelf number two. The rising ground bordering a lake river or sea or forming the edge of a cut or Hallo three a steep slope as a hill three beep the lateral inward tilt of a surface along a curve or a vehicle as an airplane when turning like when the airplane takes a hard turn to the left. Or the right. You'd say that they're banking and number four a productive protective or cushioning rim or piece The etymology says this is middle English probably of Scandinavian origin akin to the old norse BOCCI BA k. k. i. which means bank and it is akin to the old English Bank B. E. N. C. Which Means Bench Yeah and there's more at the word bench and that makes sense When you're talking about bank in these terms especially one and two It's like it's kind of like a bench. There's a horizontal or a flat part and then it goes down or up or both so we're going to pick a banjo as the word of the episode I actually had a banjo for a little bit in high school. I think I think it was. Maybe my great uncle had it and he didn't need it anymore or he wasn't gonNA play it or he was getting too old to play it or something And so we got it somehow. I really don't remember where we got it from exactly but I got one and I was tuning it probably right when I got it. I was trying to tune it and it was one of the five string Banjo so there were the four tuning keys up at the end of the neck and then the fifth one. Maybe I don't know how many of you know this. But the fifth tuning key is actually in the middle of the neck. So it's not with all the other ones it's in the middle and I was tuning Tunin and I was turning the key and hitting the the note the string and it didn't sound different at turn it and hit it and turn it and hit it into wasn't something different until all of a sudden I turned it and the string popped and I had my arm over it the string popped and it smacked my exposed skin on the my my forearm. And I don't know I think it was actually the high string. I must have been plucking the wrong string because I think I was tightening. The string and the metal is so thin and it just like whipped through my arm and I had a welt that was maybe an inch or two long for a while that hurt so so bad I learned my lesson that day And I learned how to play a few chords on it only a few but it was enough to learn how to play the song. Wild thing wilding at think I love you. That song and I had some short little presentation with a couple of people in like a history or English class and We used the Banjo for some reason. And at the end of the presentation somehow it came up that I could play the song and so I played the song in front of my whole class. It was actually two classes combined and it was we so was a weird experience because I was not usually the type of person to be so extroverted like that and play a song in by myself especially that song in front of you know. Probably fifty people or something It was just a really weird moment. silly but they liked it. I guess But then we got rid of the Banjo. We sold it and we bought some drums All right that is the end of the episode. Thank you very much for listening. I think I need a new sign off because I feel like the one that I have is just sort of blame but I'm GonNa say it anyway until next time. This is Spencer reading the dictionary goodbye..

does happen to trump's public opinion it's gone up his approval opinion from all numbers are rising the trend line for trump and all of these personal approval polls is up yeah you do you know what about trump trump the Republican unity look at the approval number trump is getting for minorities Hispanics African Americans in the unemployment numbers in those groups they can't even make a dent in the guy and it's become that they've gone to the well so many times they want this to look like that it's a legitimate all my god we just on its bottom I got we got stop we gotta stop local local we sell with a drug drug Janet all my god he did and he really did it except they've gone to the wells sold many times that they're now becoming a joke now they they have become a caricature of themselves and the media detto the Democrats in the media are doing a joint exercise that is destroying the reputation and credibility of both of them one more shift bite and then back to the falls because this this is another made up story last night the Senate floor impeachment trial here is chef talking about all impossible quiz pro quo that he's worried about if trump is acquitted Rudy Giuliani there's another Erin for the president this time an errand in China any sense of the Chinese we will give you a favorable deal with respect to Chinese farmers as opposed to American farmers

roll off this guy's tongue join us roll out of this guy's mouth somebody's really does need to get this guy some help he is Ike is lost it is it's it's kind of embarrassing to watch and there's nobody trying to have not nobody trying to protect him nobody trying to draw him back into prevented from doing this stuff it's this is seriously deranged frustrated behavior these people are not you're still not getting that way than I used to joint efforts with the media bombing out and they've had to deal with that now point four years three years and counting okay John into coma Washington I'm glad you waited I appreciated welcome back how are you Sir well very well thanks rush it's an honor to speak with you thanks for taking my call you bet Sir Hey just wanted to let you know that you and your audience know what happened last week when I went to the March for the March for life over in Olympia Washington first there there was a good crowd there the news outlets that I read said that there were about five thousand people gathered around the steps of the capitol building but there was a change in what happened this year that really caught my attention see in past years as the as the the anti abortion demonstrators would walk around to the steps of the capitol building there'd be a group of pro abortion activists shouting obscenities and kind of carrying on in the way you normally see crazy leftist do you know with their profane loud stupid chances as we would walk past a but this year there was just one counter demonstrators there just want and and it struck me so much I went over and took a picture album but I could even tell this person was a man or a woman because they were hiding behind their sign they can look like a Kilroy you know look looking over their sign and and there was none of the regular screening none of the regular chance just that one person standing on the steps of the of the the Supreme Court building and they and they just stood there and the reason that I want to talk to you about this rush well one of the reasons this is Olympia Washington where this happened yes Sir yes Sir and and that's and that's part of my point because this is Washington I mean we had we had legalized abortion by popular vote before roe versus Wade but now but now it seems like the hard core people who are supporting this of just kind of weather withered away and and and gone away they just weren't there and and the thing is none of the as far as I could tell none of the mainstream media covered this at all I mean they did cover that there was a March and they did cover that there were about five thousand pro life people out there but they'd but nobody seemed to cover there was just one counter growth your candid administrator out there and I'm hoping one that this is an indicator of what of how popular opinion is going in the country but also I was thinking about with this backdrop I mean right now we have the most pro life president that I've ever done I've ever seen I think the most pro life president that we've ever had and so my my impressions we gotta keep supporting this guy throw the garbage is going through I mean this impeachment is just one of the last things but but we got it we gotta keep supporting them right okay so your your your question has to do with why the what where have the the pro aborts gone one of the pro choice is gone it's it's it's a good question I I I I would have expected state of Washington of you would be far more quick to answer them the and I the only thing I can tell you about this is the way it has changed the Republican Party look in nineteen ninety two I went to Republican convention in Houston and it was known that that convention was known for doll poll choice Republic gotten a women that were demanding that the Republican Party get rid of this pro life position and interestingly the leader of women for choice in the Republican Party was and stone the wife of Roger stone at the time and it was a huge it was all saw this convention where they Republican Party was raked over the coals by a a a woman who had acquired aids through a blood transfusion a Republican Party was being told left and right what a bunch of big gets in a is for not having the right attitude about homosexuals and aids and then pro choice now look there is no pro choice Republican coalition to speak of the pro life contention the Republican Party owns it they have totally beat it back there isn't any this is a major major political victory of achievement for pro life political groups and forces because in addition to the morality of the issue they also five at the political arena so it's a it's a political success that they've had and as an issue it's no longer dividing the Republican Party it used to be a huge thing I couldn't go anywhere with them that that these establishment Republicans get all over me telling me I have to get the questions in line I had to get the pro lifers aligned together to calm down together shut up we're never going to win an election to go to these people shut up now look it's the pro aborts semi pro choicers aren't even around on your storage Dana Washu makes it sound like things the reason as well or the question is why trump is your trump was he's not been a pro lifers whole life trump was a New Yorker I am pro choice only because it was the path of least resistance yeah I believe in a woman's right to just leave me alone go away and I want to make a big deal out of it but that that was the position at the happens a New Yorker if you're gonna be popular in New York pop culture popular to be politically popular but now trump the first seven president to attend the March for life in Washington in person there isn't any Republican presidents ever done that so it gets represents a massive political victory in a treatment on part of everybody in the pro life aspect of the pro life movement in the Republican parts a slam dunk win and the party is not known for it and guess what guess what some we've said all along it doesn't hurt it's not why Republicans were losing elections back then the pro life movement is not why Republicans are you couldn't win an election is a Republican without those voters that many of them it was never true that they were costing the Republican votes in fact it probably was much more true state of the other way anyway John I appreciate the call I got to run but we've got more when we get back no rush.
"bangkok" Discussed on Correspondents Report
"Well, after almost four years in Bangkok, southeast Asia correspondent, Liam Cochrane is finishing his posting is heading back to a stranger in his final correspondence report. He takes us back to where it all began. I remember manicured grass in a row of seated Buddha statues looking on serenely was sitting in a temple in the Lao capital Vientiane, it was a moment of quiet in the midst of this sort of shambolic, backpacking adventure, typical of a nineteen year old another sounds cheesy. But as I was sitting there in the temple cloister, I was suddenly overwhelmed by what I can only describe as an epiphany a strong calm feeling that I would return here that my career as a journalist would be in southeast Asia. If he is laid out with a journalism degree under my belt and a burning desire to become a foreign correspondent, I did just that traveling back to Laos to fulfill that destiny witnessed by those Sahlin buddhis- with their half closed is the fact that Laos was a communist country with no real English language media. Somehow hadn't occurred to me, of course, there were no jobs for journalists and my dream of light. He'd is effortlessly tapping out Graham Greene, esque novels, in Vientiane came to a somewhat abrupt halt, but I carried on through Laos by boat and bus ox-cart and bicycle stopping for a memorable few days at the giant stone, jars Nippon's Yvonne, where a kind archaeologist explained the mystery. No one knew who made these jars evidence of their ancient civilization remained elusive in Cambodia, I got my first journalism job. I took myself to Nepal for a few years after that, then back to a strategy where I started with the IB see doing radio learning how to shoes and eventually guide to Papua New Guinea in light twenty fifteen. My dream deed, actually come true, and I was posted. He had a Bangkok as the ABC's southeast Asia correspondent arriving from the tough streets of port-moresby Bangkok was like some kind of wonderland the food the freedom I met the team, a Jim. Office manager ups on and driver Cohen to they were plenty of stories to get stuck into in Myanmar Aung San Suu cheese. Party swept the election. My shouted my piece to camera over the singing cheering crowds of supporters gathered outside party headquarters after all the bloodshed the years of military repression and the stoic suffering of on San Succi under house arrest. It was a sense that myemma was finally on the right path October of two thousand sixteen saw an event that had been coming for a while. But still, brought Thailand to it's knees the death of the widely adored king. Bhumipol Adonia day, it was an emotional day here yesterday as the king's body was transferred from the hospital where he died to the Grand Palace. Thousands of people lined the streets dressed in black many of them holding the king's portrait. There were tears and a somber. Silence. As the procession passed by in August twenty seventeen myemma took a very dark, turn LA. They've been violence before against the Muslim hangers, but nothing like this a coordinated purge with soldiers police, and civilians joining to kill rape and burn the villages of Rina's driving around seven hundred thousand across the border to Bangladesh where they formed the world's largest refugee camp. Some stories went the other way from grim to hopeful to joyous. The rescue of the wild boys football team from a cave in northern Thailand had the world gripped a real life thriller with a fairy tale ending. Yes, Beverly this is the cross that I've been waiting to do for days now to announce officially that all members of the wild boar kademi football club are safely out of the cave. It is just unbelievably good news, the whole world's attention and hopes have been pinned on this and it's just amazing to finally be out of sight, writing a book about that risk has certainly been a career highlight. I guess it's fitting that one of my last stories. Here will be about those mysterious stone jars in Laos with scientists still trying to learn the origin story of these impressive megaliths compared to my early days as a dreamy backpacker, I guess of hardened up a bit. But so who's the region the Mekong countries, I've covered have become increasingly authoritarian Thailand on the military control, a genocide. Myanmar Cambodia is a one party state, Laos remains isolated and Vietnam is making money. But there's still no room to go against the grain. It's still a wonderful region to visit. And to report from a still get a buzz at of trying to understand the complexities. And I've experienced more laughs and generosity than I could ever repay being a foreign correspondent. In south East Asia has been my dream for twenty years, so leaving this post is a turning point. It's definitely not goodbye. I'll be back for sure. But I'm looking forward to some time in Australia carrying on with the and also teaching video journalism at a university. So thank you. Listener for your interest over the years. For the Twitter comments for sharing my stories without you without the perception, that a stray liens do want to know what's happening around the world. These correspondent positions would disappear. Your engagement with the is deeply appreciated. Thanks back to Liam Cochran for his reporting over the region for the past four years, Catherine, this will be taking over that most fascinating region for a reporter in the next few weeks.

"So by shifting that using better technology making it more inclusive. We are able to serve a lot more people that the. St. just wasn't able to got these two massive companies, which at least from the the public facing view seem diametrically opposed in in the level of controversy. They they they bring to the world to your life. Presumably square is a seems like a very straightforward successful noble pursuit, which about which I can't imagine. There's a lot of controversy. I'm sure there's some that that I haven't noticed, but it must be nothing like what you're dealing with with Twitter. How're you triaging, the needs of a a big company that has just functioning like a normal big company and Twitter, which is something which on any given day can be just fr- front-page news everywhere, given how given the the sense of either how it's helping the world the thing this amazing about Twitter's that is clay's enabling. Revolutions that we might want to support right or the empowerment of dissidents. And there's just this one, you know, Saudi teenager who was tweeting from a hotel room in the Bangkok airport that her she was worried that her parents would kill her. And I don't think it's too much to say that Twitter may have saved her life in that case. I'm sure there are many other cases like this where she got she was granted asylum in Canada. And so these these stories become front page news, and then the anti story becomes front page news. So we know that ISIS recruits terrorists on Twitter were their fears that misinformation spread their undermines democracy, and we'll get to Trump. But how do you deal with being a normal CEO and being a CEO in this other channel, which is anything but normal? Both companies in both. Spaces that they creatine have their own share of controversy. But I find that in the financial realm. It's a lot more private whereas with communication that has to be open. And I would prefer them both to be out in the open. I would prefer to work more public. I'm fascinated by this idea of being able to to work in public make decisions in public make mistakes in public, and I get there because of my childhood I was I was a huge fan of punk rock back in the day. And then that transition to hip hop, and that led me to a lot of open source where people just get up on stage and do their thing, and they were terrible. And you saw him a month later, and there were a little bit better on than a month later, they're little bit better. And we see the same thing with open source, which led me to technology all to me. But so I approach it with with that understanding of that..
