"bombay" Discussed on The Big Story
"So this is where the Mumbai drug bus case is at right now. Arun Khan, along with his friend at bass merchant and actress movement a major have been given Bill by the Bombay court. The detailed order according to the advocate McCarthy will be released tomorrow by the court. All three are likely to be released from jail on 29th or 20th October. Wrote keys entry has also brought in some hard hitting arguments in the case. On traces in October, tearing into the NCB's defense rod gehard argued that not only there has been no occasion to arrest Khan without having anything to show for possession, but that he couldn't be charged with quote unquote conscious possession either from what we know some contraband was recovered from art by merchants shoes, who is a friend of Khan, and wrote he argued that quote unquote, what somebody else had in their shoe is not my concern. Possession of somebody else can not be my possession unless there is control and knowledge. On 28 October argued that Khan's remand application was misleading, and that it made one feel that large quantities were acquired from Argentina. In regards to the claims of conspiracy under section 29 of the NPS act, growth key proceeded to make a rejoinder submission stating that quote unquote, there was no meeting of the minds there was no discussion that they will meet and that they will get the substance and smoke. And we also have the queen's legal editor for cautious as Dave, highlighting some of the key arguments made in the court. So we don't obviously have the detailed grounds for the order at this point from the Bombay high court, which, you know, obviously, we will need to see that to get a full clear idea of exactly why the NCB is arguments have been rejected by the NDP scope's reasoning is not valid and therefore where our income has been granted. Bail at this stage. But at the very least, I think it is pretty clear that either which we this is a bit of a dumb indictment of the NCB. Because, look, what the NCB remembered have been arguing, they argued in the NDP sport, and they've argued it here again is that in this case, even though, when we're looking at our income or by as much, the amount of drugs connected with them is small quantities, 6 grams of jars from above as much in 5 grams of chillers from the major. Nothing from our income, but, you know, they're trying to retire him to our boss motion. They say, despite that section 37 of the NDP has act applies and section 37 of the NPS act makes it really, really tough to get bail. So therefore, you know, you can't run bigger. Now, they've said that this applies because there's a conspiracy between our income and the others. In connection with some of the other accused from whom larger quantities, including a commercial quantity of drugs was found and if you talked up all the tools of the drugs which have been seized at all comes to a commercial quantity. So therefore, since there's a conspiracy and since that brings in commercial quantities of drugs, therefore, section 37 applies, section 37 makes sense that you know the quote can't run bail unless a person unless I think the person is not guilty of the offense on a primary level. So, you know, that's how the NCB has been trying to deny build these guys. And that's why the NDP actually didn't deny Bill to them. But for the bomber I could now say no, means you know that two things have happened. Either they've said, you know what, your whole claim of conspiracy is nonsensical and therefore section 37 never applied. And therefore we're grounding there because, you know, the other offense against these guys are things which have a maximum punishment of one year in jail. So therefore would be the kind of thing where you would ground Bill. Or they're saying, you know what, maybe a conspiracy case does work, but these guys are actually prime officially not guilty of that whatever larger big scale conspiracy offense which exists. So either which we're not a great day for the NCB when it comes to this order. Now, if we look at the I mean, this is not exactly something which should be surprising. If you look at the arguments made by senior advocate locally for our income for amid this I for our basmati. I mean, this case has always been very weak. And they are really highlighted this in the two days of arguments at the Bombay high court. Road key pointed out that at the time of the arrest, the very basic one of the most basic things which is supposed to happen, which is supposed to be given the proper grounds for a rest, that didn't happen. Back then itself, you know, so try to start. And that's something which is there an article 22 constitution. You can't just ignore that even though that are special procedures under the ndps act. He said, moving on to the set of merits of all of this, what is the case against iron content that you can show conscious possession the NCBI's? But how you really doing that? If you're saying he's in contact with her boss merchant. Okay, where is the communication between him and her boss merchant? Which actually talks about the drugs which were recovered from robots. You know, you've got nothing there. You're looking at WhatsApp chats from 2018. You know, to make this connection, which doesn't really make any sense. You can't do something from three years ago to say, oh, he knew that our boss was bringing drugs to this cruise party and they were going to do it. So, you know, very, very strong argument that on that, he looks at, you know, even in terms of conspiracy with other people, where is the evidence for it? Well, what is the connection you're drawing? The only WhatsApp chats you've got are between him and her boss merchant. So not with any of the other cues. And the NCB themselves if you remember, as has been recorded in the NDP sport order, I've said that the chat with our inkan and other people which involve discussions and drugs apart from our basmati. And that with unknown persons. So not the other accused here. So how are you drawing this whole conspiracy between our inkan and other people who've been arrested on this cruise rate? You really hammered that point home. And sometimes the NCB didn't really have an answer to. You look at the arguments they made over the course of the last couple of days. They're not really added anything to the arguments which they've made previously, which have been very flawed on this aspect of conspiracy. They've got nothing which really shows a conspiracy between the 8 accused were arrested around the same time from the ship or the additional accused, including one from whom a commercial quantity of one drug was found. There's no actual connection between audience and these guys. And in fact between most of them between each other. So the whole claim of conspiracies is really looking weak at this stage and that was something which the lawyers did manage to hammer home. The one new thing which they tried to argue the NCB was the question of provocative sales affidavits saying, oh, look, this shows that what we were seeing earlier about a risk of witness tampering is genuine. Which is funny because the whole thing which was coming out of the affidavit was in any case that there was an attempt to extort money from to get our income release. So to say that that is proof of witness tampering is quite hilarious in the first place. But I wouldn't be the court is not found any merit in that broad key, strongly denied having any connection with provocation in his arguments. And you know, they did also point out that the leakage of chats was also an issue, which has been on the day of the hearing news channel. Suddenly got hold of these WhatsApp chats between our incon and other people and shooting in a near pande who had just been questioned by the NCB. So you know, I mean, at the end of the day, it's very clear that the bond behind really has not taken a lot of these claims of conspiracy of large commercial quantities of drugs in our incomes involvement in them very seriously. So it's obviously a good day for our income in his life, but also an important one I think even if we're looking at less high profile cases to look at the fact that these cases being put together by the NCBI are quite weak section 37 is being invoked even though there's no real cause to do that. I mean, that's for like supposedly for like the serious cases that you try to say. This bottom.

Trophy is coming home to kentucky. But behind every great hero there are others individuals who play a crucial role in the achievements of those we read about in the headlines the ultimate team players content to stand behind the curtain embracing their place as a vital part of a sports success in horse racing. These are the unsung heroes horse racing full of unsung heroes including my special guest here. This morning lena lori l. who is the longtime exercise. Rider for hall of fame trainer. Shook mcgahey began working with sugar and nineteen eighty-four after moving from her native sweden. She is still with him today. Shook says she is an integral part of his success in his hall of fame career. And lena this week's unsung hero. Lena thanks for taking the time. Appreciate the visit. Our you know thirty seven years is an awful long time to do anything but to be an exercise rider for a man of the stature in an operation the stature of shook mcgahey boy what a ride. This is ben Yes i mean. That's the. I'm so lucky because i get to work with some of the very best horses. Then we have all the best resources so that makes my job easier to the come from the yes. Go ahead. I'm sorry to interrupt you. Go ahead no you go. How does a girl from sweden ended up working with such prestigious operation like shook mcgahey as far as I traveled in europe for a couple of years with a girlfriend and then my girlfriend need to go to america to so i said okay. I'm gonna go for six months. And then when i came over here As far as i freelance for a couple of months and then shook needed somebody to go to florida. And that's why i approached him about coming to where the job while still thirty seven years later the relationships still stands and still going strong. He sings your praises when i reached out to him and asked him if there was anybody who could think of that deserved to be an unsung hero on this particular segment He immediately sent back to me and gave me your name and your number.

I'm a little bit of teacher like you. Work with the horses. Like young children and my job is to get them ready for the racist. Now some of them. You can see them in bombay. You just show them one time and they know exactly what to do and some of them you have to practice over and over and over again just like that like how children can be not everybody learns the same way so my job was something going on. Yeah it's such a great way to put it. I love that being a teacher working with these young horses. Getting them to to develop mentally and physically i i would imagine. It's about both of those right. Oh absolutely and that's i think that's the biggest difference between regular horses good horses and really great tortoises that great horses have special mind they have a special mindset. They used it really enjoy their work. They understand what you wanted to do. So a lotta times my horse. My job is easy because they already wanna do right now and out the other horses that you really have to practice with and have to do the things a lot more slow as it's as more of a challenge because towns on if you are yeah yeah there has to be more development. If you're the teacher tell me about some of your your price pupils if you will.
Accent Bias and the Myth of Comprehensibility
"Few weeks back. I brought up. The topic of accent buys on our social media pages. I talked about how. I was initially worried about weather. My accent would be an obstacle in launching a podcast. The way i see it in bias is pretty much everywhere. And it is perpetuated through american pop culture for instance. I'm sure a lot of you remember up from the simpsons. Thank you gumming. A and you see whether igloo hot to lean to order geodesic. Dome there's no structure. I have been through which. I'd rather call my home. Where i i've you would. I'll search. But now i've come through law your quirks maggie with her eyes so bright mart with hair. My gun philosophize box set depth. That spinning former story about this one nella leaks. Quickey might not hear that part. Yeah that one now walkways. A quintessential stereotypical character based on a white basins interpretation. What an indian soundly or sounds like. There's no denying that apu was funny but the problem is that most of us were laughing at apple rather than laughing with the character may have appeared harmless but it caused a lot of distress to people were already struggling to simulate or kids of immigrants will perpetually believed in schools to be honest. It's not just the media even. Ai has an accent bias. I can go on and on about how apple siri continues to discipline me to speak as in weeks so do google home alexa now. Apple and is do claim to have inclusive voice recognition systems. But i don't think that is true but coming back to my social media post. We had a tremendous response from your on this topic so many if you chimed in on the conversation on the different aspects of exim bias and many of you expressed interest in hearing an episode on the topic. Well ask and you shall receive our guest. Today is someone who's short to bring an expansive perspective on the topic of accent bias. Professor which occur borsi is a licensed speech language pathologists to ditches at california state university fullerton in the communication sciences and disorders department as linguist. His research has been featured in a multitude of scholarly journals. You're listening to immigrants. I'm your host saadia the hunt these kids in a very subtle manner. When they're speaking english to you they might allow more of their first language. If at all there is any remnant first language left them with you so they will sound little different with you. Listen to them when they are talking to a person who was born and brought up here in america. Thank you for coming on immigrants. I am so excited. Do have this particular conversation with you messiah. So what we're going to talk about today is so intrinsic to who i am and how i view myself so it is personal but before we dive in. Can you tell us about how you entered the world of linguistics. I was a student of speech and hearing science in mumbai. India and of course i was dealing with kids and adults with communication disorders speech in hearing both then one of my teachers who was a linguist from johnny. I got very motivated to understand the intricacies off language than how each every would of sound in different combination can evoke all sets of biochemical responses within us for example. You hear a single word you start crying you hear another set of sounds come catinat together. You raged you feel loved. These are biochemical responses. That are happening. So i was very curious to understand the so-called power behind those acoustic signals. So that's how it started. And then of course the psycholinguistics bod was an integral part of everything. And how did you end up in the us so once. I finished my masters in linguistics from bombay university. I started doing some social work on his work then. I came here to do to do my doctoral degree. In speech physiology with a special interest in cross linguistic interaction where one language than influence the language and back and forth. How that interaction goals. And how that is reflected in our muscle movement so that helped area of signs motivated me to come here under my phd. Let's stock about the accent bias. That's something that i have recently become more aware of. Although i would say this. I am very proud of my accent. I don't have any issues with it. But i didn't realize how it impacted my interactions with other people and i feel like before we talk about accent bias. In general we need to address the fact that much off. Our framework of the conversation is because english as the language has this global linguistic cloud right And i assume that is the result of clooney lysm and imperialism. In your opinion wral us think there are certain accent privileges that are tied to specific languages. That have an easier time. Pronouncing english are being phonetically close or closer to english. Language for instance people from western europe or european population in general. The they have an accent. Privledge it is sensitive to where you are geography located at that particular point. In time you are. Who are you surrounded. What's the kind of people their socioeconomic and in addition to that as you have mentioned the history of colonization people coming from india versus another person. Speaking english from italy person. Speaking english from italy with a very distinct influence of their mother tongue in english will probably get more exotic advantages. Yeah even a person in the film industry even the bosom from the media industry but remember these are anecdote in some of my papers. I have mentioned that some social scientists they have mentioned it extensively that he has indeed. It's highly variable and that any ability is not bradley exclusive related to the history. It could also be related to the economic status of that particular country at this point in time how closely that particular country is a related to the powerful countries for example. If i'm one of those american power house and i'm viewing bosom from a country. Become we enjoy very good affiliation versus. If i'm conflicted with that particular country dose factors do influence my overall perception of that particular
Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway
"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units. They've had a huge amount of debt to pay down. Which is why they've been selling them off. We talked here about when they sold the series their airliner which was sold off to airbus. And this is going to be Job cuts all over the place in a separate article. I saw that. I think about three hundred people will lose their jobs in wichita allow the production is based another arrest. Seven hundred i think are being lost in either quebec or ontario of because there's some being lost in both provinces i forget which one was the most but one was seven hundred and the other was a one hundred so big impact All the way around it does really make party a instead of the cult conglomerate that it was with all kinds of different things including a railcar business very much a single business entity and we've talked in the past how feel a lot of the business jet companies. They've gotten multiple businesses Textron's a great example And so this is really gonna make them highly subject to the you know the ups and downs of the market and fortunately the markets in an upturn business jets are selling well but boy. This'll be a real challenge for them. The future i think when there's a downturn in the market bill. Lear william powell. Lear was also an interesting guy course. he's He died longtime ago in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight. So it's been it's been quite a while and we've mentioned before that he actually invented the eight track Which many of our Younger listeners are not gonna know what that is. Tell us what is that. Because i don't know what an eight track is. I had one of those In my truck. Back in the let's see would have been in the Early seventies but he was a self taught engineer. But you know what. I didn't realize is that he was actually a call. Your trophy winner. But not for the learjet. Do you know what he won the collier trophy for david. No i didn't know he won a collier trophy. He did for the f. five autopilot. The autopilot was for the lear jet. Not for an f five. That was a test david. You passed double checking very good man. So yeah now bombarded says that they're going to continue to to support the aircraft ecorse encouraging and really to be expected But yeah it's kind of sad to see an old name like that disappear all right we have From marketwatch archer aviation gets one billion dollar order from united airlines on the same day announces. A deal to go public Max united airlines united is getting interested in vitale aircraft.

How To Be An Anti-Casteist
"Warner. We started talking about cast with Lauren Freyer. This is Lauren NPR's India correspondent who started thinking about cast and race in part because of an initiative at NPR to track the diversity of sources. This is something we all know do including this podcast. We will note how many women were putting on the air, how many people of Color and other demographic stats I see my company trying to better represent America with the voices we put on the air and I'm looking at my own sourcing and I get too much credit. Every voice I bring to the airwaves from India as a person of color check the box you know that's diversity from my boss' point of view but I'm looking at different types of diversity in India and thinking. CAST. You see it in India when it comes to. Arranged marriages, dating APPS, you see it in real estate I mean there are subtle ways in which landlords choose tenants and signal to tenants. That certain cats are welcome or not welcome. There is no uncontroversial way to talk about cast and even the words we use are fraud. You're going to hear people in this story talk about upper caste and lower caste. We're GONNA try to avoid those hierarchies and say dominant cast at oppressed caste oppression is a strong term, but it definitely applies here. This is oppression that's gone back centuries. It was really amplified by the British. So British colonists came in and gave Brahmins privileges elevated them and exploited this power differential between the BRAHMINS and other castes and when Indians won their independence in nineteen forty seven, they wrote a constitution that acknowledges that oppression and lays out bold measures to try to fix it affirmative action programs to place dollars in government jobs to play dollars, its top universities, and all of that exists in India still today. But despite all of this dalits in India face so much violence disproportionate violence Daulat women are raped more than women of other Castes Dalit men get lynched for falling in love with dominant caste woman lauren knew she wanted to find out peoples cast to make sure she was hearing from variety of voices including people who don't always get access to speak. But. This broad a new problem. How actually do you find out? SOMEONE'S CAST? So Good question. How does one person Oh you're cast light it is not like you have a color which gives away your identity.

If you can't tell by surname, you can ask about someone's neighborhood are also tried to be clever I come from Hyderabad slow from Hyderabad. It's the city of nine million people all casts are there. So that's the people are not satisfied if you do named. So what they do is no, no. No. I'm not talking about with city you come from willow would your parents which relates Came from Sam keeps dodging the real question might played into used to stay in Bombay. Can. Actually before that, my father used to work. So he was daily. You just keep naming, cities. Because that is the facts also, then they will. They will understand that I'm playing around to the. Sam Doesn't want to reveal his cast because most of his Indian coworkers from dominant castes in fact, the overwhelming majority of south, Asians in America from dominant castes. They're often the ones with the resources and access to get here. The other portion usually people ask is already which. Because Brahman Salvage. Aliens. If you say. If you are in.

The tricky thing about this is that a CO worker could be overhearing this entire conversation. is still have no clue what they're really talking about. They will not even the people were very active about this. In always discrimination and all they might have not heard about cast at all. One person who has written about this hidden code it's Sora.

"See I got a certain sense as Rich archival sense of how cast interacted with the plague and how what today we call social distancing how certain certain embedded certain deeply imprinted wrong Notions of cast was so prevalent among upper caste Society but also within a certain other sections like the mill workers right, do give you a flavor of what I mean by all this on the one hand you had several but the lug family's home.

And so this page also then entailed that people hide their sequence either abandoned them or perhaps give them and this is one way in which they thought could get around some of the excess of the stringent plague measures as they perceived it.

"By all kinds of residential as well as commercial activity interesting. So I'm really curious to know how the black town did during the plague in Bombay. Yeah. It's so happened that there was his houses or them these forms of housing that landlords had set up for Mill workers in the black down. These houses were more or less one-room tenements. Now, you see with the plague you had a certain chaos of housing as well. Right? Because people had to be evicted from their houses and especially the poor came to be effective acted in a big job. We right from from various centers of the city and and it it was only possible to evict off the poor and slammed residence. Wantonly, right? You couldn't do the same thing to middle-class residence. And once you pick them would have to air out the buildings you thought you would kind of disinfect the buildings you'd line wash them. So on right and and so this this whole thing resulted in huge housing chaos and sometimes some so devilish and not just, you know disinfected over time and especially with the plague setting in you had the Bombay improvements just read which was like this colonial agency that was formed to improve housing for the poor and the Bombay Improvement just simply did not come up with enough juice. Was this enough housing to resettle the people who had been evicted and so, you know the housing chaos continued. So even in the nineteen twenties, you had an extreme pressure on land and you had this frenzied construction where you know more floors are being added off and the landlords the extremely Reckless and Brazen land. So back in business, right so that so that was the so that's one way to understand the black down. And and so yes, you had all these attempts to sanitize but they also kind of collapsed because of the housing prices thoughts on being counted and medical interventions. Could you tell us a little bit about what was put into place? Yeah, so when you're talking about medical interventions, the epidemic disease Act was passed in the year 1897 and Sir John Woodburn. Who is this member of the viceroy's legislative Council was the person who moved the bill to ensure that the British authorities would have a very easy effective and Powerful act with teeth to fight the Blake and and that's how it went down. Right the ACT also gave the central authorities to see the government authorities powers to put in place all kinds of special measures, right whatever. They thought was suitable and was warmer did all these authorities were know in a good place to inspect incoming and outgoing ships home. And other vessels and also set up a reservation sheds and inspection stations at Railway stations and apart from this all of you know, dispatch officials dispatch doctors to go into the homes of suspected Blake patience and respect their bodies examined their bodies epic people if necessary disinfect buildings, right and also insist on things like medical certificates and God, I mean to see it by medical certificates death certificates, right? So you weren't also allowed to cremate your dead or bury your dead unless you could produce a a death certificate so each other to ask you about something that you mentioned the train travel when they checked the people on trains. I'm wondering if it was selective. Like who did they check and who do they decide not to check off? So good good question. So you had very disparate and very discriminatory. I would say sorts of measures because we're in you had third class passengers at times prevented from traveling altogether, especially if you talking about fairs, you know of the tickets for 3rd class travel too.

"So when you say it's spread through Bombay and through the Hinterlands, what was the hinterland like who was living in Bombay? Was living outside it was the town segregated into black town and white town and was those in the terms being used. I mean, what did Bombay look like in those days? If you could look up our Bombay the city evolved how it grew how it expanded. So I'm going to actually rely on what one historian of Bombay has said something bizarre thing of tells us about how the growth of Bombay is a city pretty much reflected the character of the Empire as well as the global economy of the time right? So what I meant was that Bombay has City saw a flourishing Port culture a very vibrant Port culture. It was also home to two booming trips and this was a trade into Commodities that is opium and raw cotton, right? And so if you to look at the global economy then birth Opium as a commodity was being dispatched in this way. It's in great bulk to China while raw cotton was being sent and Consignments wage though Britain, right which was using that to make finished goods right finished chimps and Calico textiles. And so Bombay well as such catering to global trade in these Commodities over time. You also saw mills coming up in the city. And so as long as you also had several Mill workers who were spread across the city and so that's so you can actually then picture a package which on the one hand. So Migration by a lot of small Brokers Traders right merchants in fact Even shipbuilders all of them moving to Bombay in the 18th of the 19th centuries and added to that was also the the migration of several walk-ins who came to be employed in Bombay smells. So to answer your question about white down and black down. Yes, the the word terms like that being used and these were terms that we used quite rampant clean in all the presidency's presidency towns especially so if you to look when you're talking about Bombay or images of these terms were being employed to refer.

"May. India was under lockdown Prime Minister Modi told everyone to stay home trains weren't running and migrant laborers were walking hundreds of miles home people were placed into quarantine centers. Let's hear from that and getting thanks for being with us. I'm been looking forward to this quite a bit. So thank you. So just to start out. Let's talk about identification. It's something that you've studied quite a bit. What were some of the earliest forms of ID that were used in India? So if you were to look at some of the early forms of ID. You should so of course there was senses that came to be undertaken even in pre-colonial India. And so the mughals the marotta's right the Rajah all came up with their own senses post colonization. You have the cost sensors for instance emerging in 1901. But even before that disease saw its fair share of identification documents and identification measures. So yeah, and so some of the earliest identification measure wage then would involve coming up with all these documents related to plague but they're talking about like passports exemption certificates related to play Break the tension certificates or or in occupations certificates, and like that's really interesting. So I want to talk now about the plague wage. Just give a little background to our listeners. So it arrived in Bombay 1896 and it came on ships that docked to the Bombay port and back. Then Bombay had a population of about eight hundred thousand people dead. So the plague arrived in August and then by March which is 7 months later twenty thousand people had died and hundreds of thousands left the city and then they carried the disease into the rest of India. And if that wasn't bad enough right before this there was a famine right tell us about that. The famine happened in Bombay presidency and round of four and half black people died in the Bombay presidency and Deccan Plateau, and this happened in 1899 to 1980. So I had was seen to have some of the highest mortality rates compared to other familes is that 4.5 lakhs? Yeah. Yep. Four thousand four hundred fifty thousand people more than that little more than that. Yeah. Is that how many that's just in Bombay 450,000 people that's wrong to Bombay presidency. Okay, that seems like an incredibly large number to me especially assuming that the population back then was probably much lower than it is today. Yeah, I should say that song by the way. Of famine happened in 1899 Nineteen Hundred, but they also been family conditions before that. So so you can imagine that Bob has a city was very vulnerable to death and disease and famine had rendered its oh and by the time plague actually breaks out by the time there's a playground break in Bombay you you can actually see the debts multiply and you can actually see a certain raging wave of disease off across various parts of Obama presidency, but particularly in the hinterland, but also city is fed very badly as well. So that's interesting Bombay back then is very different from present-day Bombay, right?.

The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey
"So, re-re yes. What do you want to start with this one? I think we should start with the author's background. and. Just like the inspiration behind Irvine. So. John Massey was born in England and she was raised in the US right now, she lives in Baltimore and her parents are from India and Germany. So she did a lot of traveling. She actually wrote another mystery series back in the nineties which was set in Tokyo while she was living in Japan and it's the Ray Chamara mystery series. But this book was more in the of own voices She did an incredible amount of research for the book I don't know if the people are goods forums read the acknowledgments at the very back but I tend to read all of the acknowledgments because I. I'm usually really curious as to who the author thank and it gives me like a sense of. Their journey when it came to writing the book and she. Massey doesn't have a background in law. She reached out to people reached out to legal historians at universities in. The US who specialize in South Asian law and also in Bombay she contacted magazine editors who are familiar with Parsi customs she went she actually went to Mumbai and she visited all of the historical institutions she reached out to like even railway experts. So she could figure out like how people were able to travel from one place to another and even with the food she I think she interviewed a bunch of like food writers as well. So like the food descriptions in this book are fantastic and our main character per wien is actually inspired by two. Women, attorneys. One of them was Cornelius One of them was Cornelius She was the first woman to read law at Oxford, and the first woman to take the British law exam in eighteen ninety to eighteen, ninety two that's a lot earlier than I would expect the first. First Indian woman to to study law, and the other women that appropriate is based on is Mathon Totta lung who also studied law in Oxford and whisk first woman admitted to the Bombay bar a back in one thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, three. So. Yeah like per Venus. This this book is set in the nineteen twenties. So yeah. It's actually it's really interesting that it's actually based on women who did practice law so Yeah. I mean it's I? Don't think reunite can claim to be experts in the cultures of India but this book real you can tell that the author did a lot of research especially to portray like Mumbai such Mambi during this time period, which was a pre partition it was it depicts a Mumbai that's very multicultural multifaith like a lot of different. People Customs Cultures Religions, and even value sets that kind of coexisting with each other which made for really interesting setting especially in the context of per wien enter father Jamshedi as lawyers who had to. Navigate these. Waters right because every single community has their own set of loss at they have to understand and know how to argue and just also takes place on the backdrop of this was when India was still in imperial colony, right is still part of the British empire and so you have the added. wrinkle of a colonizing power in the form of white people in the mix as well. Yeah Like you said, I'm I'm not an expert with a one thousand, nine, hundred twenty s India But in terms of like England nineteen twenties. So that was during George, the fifth Who was the grandson of Queen Victoria? It's so it's to rains after the Victorian era. So very the the the dad of the King's speech King Yes yes. So this was during time where there was a rise in socialism. And just. I. Think it was like at the height of the British empire and then it crumbled.
"OUR FIRST STORY! We're GONNA. Throw it back to jaising beyond plays relationship before when they'll in the elevator because Houston Rapper Bun B claims that he was kicked off the set of beyonce's check on it. Music video now was apparently dancing around and short skirt, skimpy outfits and Says Jay Z was not comfortable. He revealed on the nostalgia mix tape podcast that holds it called one of beyonce's assistance who then allegedly carried out his orders to clear all men from the set? Are you shocked to hear this? Do you feel Gysi was being a little overprotective I'm shocked to hear just because that's the opposite of how I would act if fiance was my partner. Like everybody, all these cool guys get in here. Check out how great she is the dancer. Check this out that she's in. How how lucky am I I'd be? I'd be more showing off. You know nothing about the community. And that is the. Way. People look at me and go. That guy knows about the hypocrisy's. Very naive answer, even bombie himself said Okay and he left because he totally understood. You WanNa know why because Bombay doesn't even trust me, so he totally understood dates. was onset, but means wife was on that. And this the thing like this is. He knew he was getting involved with someone else in the music industry. He knew he was getting involved with someone who was successful was going to have to do. Music Videos and tours, and also Jay Z has the skimpy women in his videos he's had. Women in hot tubs. Women dance flipping around all around him. So this to me if it is true, because this is only from be is was very insecure on his part in this was way back then, but I just feel like if it was good for the Goose Gander, I? Do think that like there are people out there. Men and women who like a partner who kind of has that controlling vibe I don't get it personally. Maybe on to actually was flattered that Jay Z did that I thought that's coming from a toxic place. Like even if you're saying that you, you know you want that I just feel like. Like as as a businesswoman, you should be able to conduct yourself and your partner should trust you that this is a this is fantasy. This isn't a real thing. He had his wife there. This is a business transaction assistance. We're their camera people. If this is a true story, this really shows like what Growth Jay Z. has gone through from then to now because that type of behavior was completely toxic, I think of the I think Jay Z. Trust beyond, say one hundred percent. I think he doesn't trust all the guys out there watching I. Don't know I just don't agree with someone coming in and taking charge she was. Was Not even involved in the project so I guess we will all have to agree to disagree on

I lived in Bombay until I was eight owes a huge cricket fan. I played a ton of cricket. And we moved into A. Kind of an apartment complex when we arrived here and and. There was a tennis court. Right next to it where we're well. This was in the East Bay. This was east of. Glee in in in a in a city called San Pablo. and. You know. I think when I was like nine or ten years old, there was a man who would always come there in hidden serves like ten down the t ten out. Why ten down the T ten out wide, and I just started going down there and Collecting balls for him. And this! I think a you know him and his wife. They didn't have kids, and you know in a lovely gesture. At some point. He showed up with a tennis racket. And kinda showed me how to shift the grip for forehand and backhand, which was my first official lesson in the game and so. I so I started playing there. I played through high school and you know. and. Then I stopped playing the game for years. I stopped playing college. I didn't play it in Graduate School You know I moved my wife and I moved to new.

She wrote called need for speed dating which shows sometimes past relationships can follow us into the present. While you were like the wild card winner to. And you bought a Fan Club is certainly. To say one advantage of screening in my hometown that I was able to stack the death knell little that it was nice to have to New Yorkers this year. And my family came in from Ohio to. Yeah, I had I had support from the Midwest and the East Coast, although it's great great. What I what I really struck me about this movie is there's an underlying theme that we kinda carry. Pass relationships into our present, and they can affect it, and it's very underlying and very subtle, but I won't given it away, but that's that's really struck me about this mood. I think the only way to move forward in relationships is to deal with your past in relationships, and to reconcile your feelings for past lovers go or a bad to be able to move into your cheer future in your presence, even to when it's, it's hard to not compare at three. I stayed to your first day with a great love of your life. Yeah. It's difficult. I mean I've never done speed dating because. I just kind of pass me by. Thank God but I mean my wife or not, although my wife and I met and very unique way we met on the Internet. We did I. Did a a dating service? I said I got tired of the people. I was meeting. I said you know I'm good approach like a job hunt. Because, I've done online dating a drill while you. Really you have to really be patient and you really have to go through. A lot of I was actually towards the end of my patients, and I said you know all right. I'll see her. She seems interesting. And our first date was amazing. And, we've been together ever since. My mom and my Stepdad met through personal ad in the newspaper. Precursor yeah. Yeah. You know it really takes. it takes a lot of patience and and and faith. And you can't get frustrated. Look Look Your your beautiful here. talented. Obviously, so you're gonNA find somebody you know. Although. You know it's difficult. I was saying before I think especially New York correal. Auction. Myriad of distraction. To be more willing and ready to settle down Serie. I really liked her to and where she was. Trying something like this and. You know just the way she approached it and also her ideal of what. You know what what people want you know. She's pregnancy house with the white big advance. You know it's the ideal these days I. Don't know whatever happens, but. It's much easier to fantasize. Intent to actually. Yeah, that's great. So was just based on your own experiences and a lot of ways I mean obviously, it's called imagination series immagination involved. But again I think being. A single woman in a big city where often your fast or told to choose between a career or relationship. Is something that I think about a lot. That question of can you have it all? It's really very presence. And I have been on a lot of terrible birthday I've never done speed dating although I. Did a lot of stories I was reading. but I do think it's about it's about perseverance just as much in your in your careers in your personal. It's it was really acute and imaginative story and I liked the way you approached it and you know what sitting back here I watched again and there's like a I'm want GonNa get. There's a sixth sense element to it. And and it's like you watch the second time you to go. Yeah, you're right. They never yeah, you know. There was real. Surprised because you never know when you're writing. People figure it out right away. Throws Nice little twist and I like that and the actors were just wonderful. Really lovely. We gotTA British casting. Director cast. A bunch of actors that I didn't know I was pleasantly surprised to see them all. They're one of work. I like happy endings to. What's up for you next? So as an actress I'm on law and order Svu. Next week April thirtieth. I'm a little recurring partners of coming back. And I have a film in Theater Production Company here in the city called club, and the spirit of why we're waiting people to give us work ethic sneaker on work. The spring fling and be run. May firstly eleven of the access leaner also? That's great. You know that's Svu is like on my wife's watchlist. She loves crime shows. and. What does it feel like you know to be here I? Mean having Jeffrey Fleischer. Introduce your film and to be here. Really what a greg crop of filmmakers and it's really just incredible especially being New Yorker, and being able to the chew premiere the own, not just at the TRIBECA Film Festival which is one of the world's best festivals. Amongst my friends and family has been just a really wonderful it's. So I think there's. There's an acting career, but I think eventually you'll slide behind again. We'll see we'll see I. do think that you know Lena Dunham. Tina Fey Mindy K-league. There's a model of women who act and write and produce. I would love to follow in their footsteps. We could use some good more women directors to for them. Other. That's the one thing that I don't. Do. You never know never say never. What a pleasure, and it's a neat little film and really just shows you only just tapping what you can do. I think it's going to be awesome. Arrest of your career can be.

Like wow, that's great and you know and thinking about it anymore and then. Other. Nation thing again, allow you know. Let's get something in there. and. God knows what it might be, but I just. I I think how many people wrote you know I'm sure there's a ton of amazing amazing. That, ain't through there. Because you know, it's a great game play, and I mean I think that's why probably got the injury is because it's a relaxation for the creative mind. It's like Oh like a really fun thing to do you know as opposed to being sort of very in the process of artistry? It's like let's let's play and see what comes out of it and the. Film they made last year I'm just. I'm honored to be in the company of those and. Excited you, I believe that he would be. And lastly now when you get the you get like treatment to work with, or do you get like an actual script to work with when you when you get that from? You know I guess from Jennifer. It was like five or would attend her short line. It was you know basically like the guts of a conversation that could have anything any people anywhere in the world anytime frame. It was literally just sort of the essence of a conversation with people. Like we have we have to get out of here, you know. How do we get displaced? Amazing, and then it's all you after that on. You. whatever you know, Yama, however you on the inside the characters whatever type thing WanNa be and You know what how how you utilize production of. It isn't an animation. Is that you know live action? You know whatever you WANNA do they put no parameters on it? Other than you have to incorporate those lines from lines. tastic. That's really it literally is imaginative and you just. It's whatever your mind can come up with, and I think that's public. One of the coolest things about it is. It really is the. Filmmaker and that's why you get such a different in diverse You know film some last year. It was just it was so diverse yet. They all Kinda started in the same place. So so cool!

"Wasn't called every woman competition I mean that that little tiny zone went all over the place and said. To me, Hey, the thing that you have to say you know. When you first start, this is my first time. It'd be like being an art. been you know story teller and being you know using these towns commercially for a while, but like as an artist. I said okay, this is. Hand that they knew what I want to say, and people actually interested. That was just throwing. The Best I was like Oh. Wow, okay. All right. Let's talk some more, so you know my my next conversation with them. The phone call after that did very well. Then I had a phone call Amazon. So barbeque saw is actually like my film. Wow, good for you. What's amazing a- and actually well? That's what we'll. We'll talk about what else is coming up. But who you are, you're you're you're one of the winners of the Bomb Bay Sapphire series I mean. How did you get the news and I gotta ask it. How in all fields? How have you had a chance to take it all in? Everyday I remind myself. How great moments are because you know as an artist. There's this. Struggle. So it. Reminded of the wait. There's this really making talking about the Bombay death by thing. That you could win. You? You make film without having stress of making film. They're going to help produce. Nothing is trying to get out there actually going to help us. Create this work so. Activists. After the writing. All of the record this the shrager filmmaking. Is a real challenge and has been for many many years and you know hundred. They'll make it a talked about. Had you know the course on well over. Ninety Percent Hustle, and only two percents homemaking, and you know it's no way to live, and are they gonna take that burden away so the now the work done. The writing I. Wore, the, possibility. A nation. So yeah the little inside of like. How to get the film made. You so I'm going to wallow in the pleasure of that. Entire process because you know getting the donate. That's difficult part and then I said before. This is this process is like putting in the finish line because we already know, it's going to festival. Going So when when you normally when you write a cell, you sort of figure quite doors and saying Oh, I! Hope in my life. I hope we can. I hope we can make it I hope it and I hope. That I hope it doesn't get you know easing DVD out. Some pile with an intern somewhere and nobody ever sees it. You know but knowing that this is to BBC. It's tough, a nick. Good tickles me every time I. Well, you know you have people like Geoffrey Fletcher and Adrian Brodie and they've added some new people including actor from the twilight series Peter, Finale and and i. a meeting Jeffrey and Adrian the year or so I. I know that they're very passionate about this is not an I. Get caught up because I always love. To see new filmmakers kinda develop and kind of catching as they're as they're on their way up and really telling their story so I that's what gets me you know psyched about. This is the fact that you have those people. You don't have to do this, but it's because they're passionate about it and they wanNA. Kinda mentor and give back I think is an excellent. Programming in. Bombay Sapphire of course makes it all possible, and that's Kudos to them for that, too. It's all. And I'm so glad that they can backwards for a second year. Because some see you know you know, corporate people will come out and they'll have some sort of like this. We'll do something you know Honda will do something. Mercedes will make it and they'll do an amazing thing, and then they never comes back. It's like something that they're advertising. Is that came with, and it doesn't come back for the fact that they came back for a second year. Really shows are committed to you. Know a fostering imaginative fear it and that's just. Wonderful that they do that, too, and that does all of these. Industry professionals, but. Fletcher is an alumni, my cool. I run into him in. Along the way, but now he knows my work, and to know that him and Adrian Brodie and you know the people that are involved in the judges are actually aware of Lee as An individual who is a professional in industry who had the desire to continue to grow and use your imagination Kobe story? You know it. BETTER THAN That's supply. That's the true Pie. The holidays came early for you a little bit this year. That's great and speaking with a nice transition. You're actually you're not resting on laurels. You're actually in pre production for Christmas wedding baby, and yes, I am the hero of reproduction. Roller Coaster here we go. I can tell you. I've had morning sickness. You know it was just on that I did with my son. Every, not just in the blood rushing from. One you know it's because you haven't you have a green have a vision, and you know on the page, the MAG nation that allows run wild, but then when you actually get into production, and you had to actualize the things that you wrote so freely. In the quiet corners of their mind, you know then the money comes in and who's going to build it. We're going to play it, and then you know where you're going. Get the wardrobes from. And how are we going to get the Florida? And what's the weather going to be like? All those realities come into play. What makes the blood rush how you know and I as a producer? Kid Myself into thinking that? You use you know you're not gonNA write that theme with the car. Chase the blows up and. You can't afford do that right now. Where you are but I still do think as my night in the the United Nations in a Free Spirit I. still do things that can go. Why did you write that? But now they're gonNA. Make it you know, and I make it come true. So. Right back to the whole. You know with Bomb Bay that by taking care of that portion of the. That's Li- like I said I. I will just wallow in the glory of them. Being the great parents who are GonNa make this thing, okay. Absolutely. Well I I. Actually covered the red carpet at TRIBECA. Last year and I spoke to most of except for one filmmaker. I spoke to them all and one in in Spanish, which I. I was very proud of, but because he didn't speak English. Lip Railings and anyway I was just impressed with the quality of their work, and also really their enthusiasm for film, and it's very encouraging to see that, and and you have the same thing I. Think you're in great company. I think it's GonNa. Be Interesting and I certainly look forward to meeting you there on the red carpet next year for tribeca in the spring. Feel like a long way off with winter just starting here, but but. That and and and getting a chance to us. Even you've done. Hurry. It's.

"Moved. So. I actually think that the best sci fi gives you that perspective Where you can see things sort of a new. Because sometimes you're you know things can be become too common. The surroundings and you can can actually make it harder to see these clearly defined. Ideas. What did you think of? Into darkness. I like to star Trek Darkness I. Thought He actually took a lot of chances. A big chances in this movie like you know using a well established character like Khan and bringing them in. And then flipping the debt scene, instead of Spock dying, he killed Kurt and I, said man that took balls really took goals the data I agree with you I was saying the same thing, and then I reflected back on the first one. First one was pretty Gutsy to yes, what? Time live and almost wiped out the the other time line. And, Destroy Vulcan that's. And, that's the kind of daring that we certainly respond to with this competition friends. With one of the! CAST members and they may participate next year. We'll see that'd be nice. That'd be real. Nice I'd like to say that, but yeah I mean that's. That's what I saw in these films into the first time around was that they took chances they didn't play it safe and they really. You know the fact that they had to work within a budget. I thought was that they did what they did was pretty awesome and didn't let that. Stop Them. All thought it. It was also same here and the realization of these scripts. The was so inspired i. mean all the details, not only the production value performances, but on some of the the sound is on so inspired pedo vegetation is one of my favorite words, but inspired his as well when it productions inspired runs through every aspect of it, and hopefully culminates in something that stays with you and resonates, and you feel it, and it's something that you can't buy you know. I an enormous budget never guaranteed, and he sort of its ratio that you leave theater. stirred so. When you talk about the budgets of these I think that You know the budgets are. Are Healthy but. I think they're a good level, because limitations, foster creativity, and and I think that that it it helps. To keep that strong current. Running through these projects. And as far as this year judging. Did you learn anything from last year to that? You could apply to share. Excellent question, the jury's. We've had both years people. Who've done great work and WHO. Understand story quite well and. You know as I get older, I have. found. That being open. To? Other people's. Strengths and Experiences Only helps to arrive at the best decision, and so I think that what I. Is. May seem obvious but. Getting A. SMART, jury. Goes a long way. To. Reaching. The best verdict. Well and lastly I just have to say that. I think I'm glad that Bombay. Sapphire is involved with something like this. There are not as many avenues as people think even with films on the Internet and stuff for filmmakers to get the money to do things. Yeah, the kickstarter stuff is good. Those don't always pan out, so have something like this we need. All of those things for young filmmakers stays absolutely. I think. Bombshell fire and the Carney have. Done. Admirable work to this end, and they really really care and you can see it with. All The details and Imagination Dame put towards this if more. Companies would. Do something like this i. think that they would find themselves Rewarded so. I. Agree With You I I think they've done. A remarkable job in every year. They they step it up. They work so hard to see what they can make better every year and how they can reach more people every year for us. It's been reported. To give opportunity to show new voices, but. Another element of this that I so thrilled about is the idea that someone might give it a try. Who wouldn't have otherwise? Just to have that little. Those few words in the page that's enough to. Put them over the edge. To jump in with both feet, I think that's a great thing. It doesn't matter if they are selected or not. But maybe they'll. Try again next year or try something on their own or get friends together. And inspire them to be creative. Because we often. Test ourselves physically I. Guess the marathons and. Things like that, but often do we really test the bounds of our imagination? Such an honor to talk to an Oscar winning writer like himself and next up. We have Kiara Jones. A filmmaker who has her own film. She just did and we spoke. She is also the first. Winner of for the Bombay Imagination film series, and we're glad to be there this historic moment really glad to get a chance to talk to you. It's i American winner I think that's also. I you know I didn't realize the. Film and I was like Oh I. Guess I am. Haven't imagined on his here and only care. About Special It is and first of all because you were in the air, force we had. Veterans Day yesterday. We certainly had our join a lot of people and thanking you for the service that you did for our country. Very proud of us. I appreciate that like years. It's kind of a interesting trip to to where you are getting into the palm. Bay Sapphire Air, force and you were also working as a broadcaster and radio and television to. Was filmed something that was in the back of your mind kind of worked its way towards the front I think I always kinda storyteller. You know gender love. Poetry and you know I love the whole court. My mother would say you know family. Offended friends come over just tell stories and get people laughing that sort of thing so I think it's all been an evolution of storytelling along the way, and you know sort of your imagination, the nation to get people to understand one another experiences. In Broadcasting What I love to do. I I was the type that did the sort of Bob Dr kind of story that just kind of stepped into the lives of people are mostly in love you to you know experienced things from never. And I think that's part of the had like. A great career in broadcasting has I tried to bring the humanity to the three of the no the. Military story you know. Things I you know. Trying to find ways in. Which people. individualise so after your after your your service, you.

"This podcast celebrates imagination, and as we know, we can take on many forms, one physical form are the Bombay Sapphire imagination series that allows filmmakers to get their ideas on film and screened at the Tribeca Film. Festival I was there on the red carpet and talk to the winners earlier this year. And today I have a full conversation with Oscar winner Geoffrey Fletcher, who is one of the guiding forces and judges, and is also part of the selection process. Let's listen. So, great teach really same here. It really a pleasure and. I had the privilege of seeing all the other films from last year or this year actually and actually I was at the red carpet and Tribeca so actually spoke to almost all the filmmakers except one. Even did one of the interviews in Spanish which I was really proud of wow, because the guy was from Barcelona and I was really proud of that so. Yeah. It was nice very nice. First of do anything. You know once in a while. You See a movie in your lifetime. You see a few of them, and you can count on one hand that really touch you in stay with you. A long time and precious was one of those movies for. Thank you so much You know. I think that's the biggest compliment a person can get. They still. Think of. Your work years later. I never get tired of hearing that. I've thankful to have one movie like that in In, my life and Hopefully will. Continue on and see what else we can do, but I I I so the I've been so moved by HAL. And surprised by how people connected with it, because while writing it. I, it would see it. I believed it would be good story, but I didn't think you would see it. And I was just hoping it would give me a chance to make a make another one. You know I think when you're writing something and you think the opposite meaning. You think that everyone will see it. been no one will see it. Maybe that every with the imagination series you know. has this election process going right now? It's going very well. We've. Not only had a greater number of entries this year the quality. Is there. Last year I think we had thirty three. Countries. submitted this year sixty eight. and. We have some other numbers individual numbers that we can get to you we are. Shocked. Some some of the places people take this, very. Minimal script which is designed for people to take where will invest themselves in it. It's shocking. They'll start somewhere really far out. Rian back around and tie it all up so that it makes sense and actually resonates with you. It isn't just some wilder clever scenario. There's humanity in it. Which I think. I think ultimately is the key we were always looking for. The magnetism inspired. soulful daring. Voices and visions IOS also very important to us that. To look for things that weren't necessarily the most polished or familiar, but where you could. See and. Inspired individual exploring. We got that. What does it mean for you personally to be involved? I mean I talked to Adrian Brodie last early this year and you know. He told me what he thought. So now that we're here to hear what you think about being involved with us. If it to me, it's a huge pleasure. I feel very fortunate to work on things that care about and believe in and new is. Almost. A coincidence that we all came together because. Years ago. I taught film at Columbia and Nyu Columbia assignment. With the exact same principle. To do it now is really nice because I believe it. It's structure. has so many wonderful possibilities that. It's just. Great to continue doing it, but. Do it with. The entire world. Yeah, it's A. It's an amazing landscape and speaking of that diversity. Because it's so diverse, everybody did so many different films this year. There was a stop motion film, and it was like I was like so happy to see stop motion. Everybody goes CGI, but that one would've worked CGI. It really had to be stopped motion, and just really I mean because of what I covered. They really expanded the tried to expand the boundaries of of fantasy and even science. Science fiction a little bit, and is that something that you look for or is I mean that's the way it was the first winners, but in this next crop. Is that something that also cropped up a little bit? It certainly did we always have a great number of science fiction entries, and within that some deal with post apocalyptic settings this year I've seen some science fiction pieces that. Were so strong seemed to have. Such potential, such a clear vision that if realized, I think. Be something quite special. We have all the genres. Always have some strong science fiction will see it. Oh, wear the process of looking over them now. I I suspect we'll have. At least one, maybe more in our mix that's great, but I mean even if it's not I mean the quality of the work. I saw like the film that I liked I'll come the it really was looking at humanity more than anything else greed and and Kinda looking at. If you could wish for something, what would you do and you know? That tells a lot about a person and as a speech what? I liked that kind of thing. It stretches foundries a little bit, and you can do that without getting preachy and tell it in a different context, and it gets the message across deed for me, and you just touched upon this. The greatest work in any genre is is grounded. In. Basic humanity, sometimes the setting will change may not be. On this planet! Sometimes. The faces will change. He teas such a Human Phil. For example. You know there are a lot of times you can see an animated film in Cry. See a live action film. Shoot your neighborhood and not be.

Educating Developers About Actions on Google with Yksel Tolun, Google Developer Expert
"I know that you're a lawyer during the day so I'm curious. What got you interested in technology and specifically voice technology enough to pursue this on the side as well. I have been interested in programming or all my life. I have met programming by ten and ever since then I haven't interested in bed. I wanted to build things that many of us that got me into building web applications and then Iran's low school by Jack pursuing it. I always had this interest. Bod Bonding one. Good thing about not thinking about making money from development is that you get to pursue feels that are experimental that other developers might see non-profitable islands. One of those people lucky enough to have the time and the energy to proceed. These deals and none of them was check box. I read an article about chat bots on how Baber the feature of technology interfaces and I was eager to try Giant learn how to build one that got me into API and then it became glow. Got Into Google assistant and how I ended up before a psychology but when I made my first force application it literally spoke to me. I said this is what I WANNA do. This is what I actually looking for. You know ever since I started programming and hooked ever since I heard most hitchens in Bombay I love that. I loved it that passion has been there for so long one of the things you've mentioned before that's important to you is the ability to translate emotions and feelings of voice go from one language to another. Why is it something that needs to be thought about? And how do you suggest it be done? This is something I always but might ultimately shops because I actually talked to a group that is probably going to translate once chiller experienced. Run up there so this is really important to talk about. I've actually talked about this in another interview languages. Have you know small nuances? That can change. The entire experience was or changed the meaning so we need to think about these bad translating inexperienced. Because sometimes I translate inaction or experience or conversation and I think the centers. It's dramatic incorrect of that sad puppies. That's not how we say it. We should think about rewriting a novel. And you're trying impress the reader we should think about the person or the user is going to feel when they drafted this user experience. So it's really important or developers from station designers to take into account what's appropriate to say while language or some of the little idioms or maybe Faysal orbs. Y'All should really think about the conversational nuances before. Translating is skill or voice experience as really important. I'd actually off the boss Harry Potter on this subject before I'm GonNa do again airport Translation is one of the best translations. In my opinion I read in both languages and I'm really happy that I read it in Turkish because translators took the time so make the spells or made up. came up with sound like Turkish. They translated That makes sense both as Orban told towards usually they are and in a way that sound structure. That is a medically glocer. What I'm used to hearing it was really important for me as a child with a bellevue. things that sound but sounds like us and uses the voice of US bench Experience we should take into account and no of do our research before using Google translate or any other atomic transition dollars. That is a great point and I love to hear that Harry Potter translated so well. I'm sure that's a really interesting to read into different languages. It is. Yeah now you have done a lot of experience in organizing in mentoring workshops and hack Athans about actions on Google and evacuate done over thirty four events in two countries eighteen cities and that was just for two thousand nineteen. What got you started in hosting these events. And how do you usually run them? Walk me started is actually a GDP do not Jewish community is right. There will developer communities on the world and I was a part of Gijon Kara and at that point I was only the developing chat bots with API or other Alex Lowe with the names but stable like trying to host a Google Assistant Event. Just didn't have anyone to talk about. Who LOSES THEM OR D platform? So I checked out the platform and soul of that. I read the new technology behind it and I told them I could do this. Dan I did and they really liked it and they shared that I knew the stop other Jewish communities some of them called me and then after I realized people want to hear what I say. I applied a couple events and one another. I started doing this and I really liked the fact that finally I could give back to the community that has been giving to me our show long because I have learned a lot from developer my past and I really like the idea of being able to share my knowledge at passionate so this is what started however actually run them right now it depends on which event. I'm running if I'm running the workshop. I tried to keep the number of attendees in twenty to forty because after forty really yes crowded and I can't answer every question and I may miss some errors or others abuts between these numbers. It's really productive and I tried to start with talk immediate talk of because even though of you're doing a workshop people still need learn about voice. Revolution the actually able to appreciate the workshop itself vice stocked with mental. I talk about the whole human to machines reactions changing and then ice. Some statistics for people like numbers. I show them how the industry is growing and Ben actually talk about how many Turkish actions are there and why is such a big deal. Torreon developers to a field and get used to it or get good at it because afterwards start the workshop. I have a sector right now. I usually with one action. That can take one input and Ben repeated and then you take a step. Further in the next art buyer. Easy Take that. Inputs and do something programmatic in the fulfillment and afterwards they all try on their devices. That are it's android are and they're to go. That's the workshops that I hold for beginners and if I'm running more invest like for example with Jimmy did programming skills. I usually go one step forward and have visual opponents. Shown to them how you'd slide cards. Why you should can use our cells and such and such but sometimes we hold these special events very take the whole day and start with. Diallo Design Conversation Design To The programing part. So it really depends on what kind of man running. It's usually focused on getting the developers started. Because it's such a new field in my talks. I like to focus on many different voice expenses that you can bill not just. The voice skills are voice actions on the Google about smart home actions or other experiences that they can build in talks. I chunk of folks a number in workshops. I usually focused on the programming side or actress on Google.

Martini celebrates the festive season with a limited-edition Negroni chocolate collection created by Paul A. Young
"The beloved Italian Coktail Negroni is one hundred years old this year and the Shuki pull a young has been asked by Martini to concoct brand new chocolate to mark the occasion. Well Uncles Ben. Ryland sat down with Paula. littler Elliot to talk about the creative and practical processes of marrying chocolate with such such a famous drink. Plus they enjoyed a little bit of tasting along the way I have the great privilege of being approached by fantastic brands And a half to love the brand and all I have to love the product that the brand of created and for me it has to be natural. Ashby pure and ask interesting. And I've known the Martini brand for for decades. I remember adverts in the nineteen eighties with a particular on roller skates. trae Martini and the any time any place. Any were to have a Martini so so it was. It was always a happy memory for me. So when they approach and said we've got these new reserve special and brought on Rubino for Moose my East pricked up because I'm not a beer drinker. Call volume alcohol drinker. Let one night champagne and spirits. But I like Negroni old-fashioned says bitter sweet flavors because you can have them over ice on their own stop blending them and for me. Obviously I have to blend into the chocolate. So the challenge for me was taking the two commutes on brought her which is a a number color and the Rabin which is this ruby color from youth and taste them dilute pair them with chocolate. Let's try and find a combination that celebrates negroni because the centenary celebration of Negroni without the chocolate distorting the flavors and characters in the botanical in the two Moose but also the vermouth are very complex. And they've got that distinct bitter sweetness to they can easily distort the chocolate as well so it was actually an opportunity for me to work with them on getting that balance. Absolutely right Let's take quite a long time. We always think about the delicacies Kasese that can go with a glass of wine for example. What it it's fairly common knowledge that certain foods should go with a glass of wine? Don't sit down to a lovely gloss of red wine and then and and then tuck into a box of chips not good idea that we often don't think about that same sort of methodology when it comes to pairing something something we chocolate. How do you know what goes well with chocolate? It's a really good question in two parts to it. When I when I first started in chocolate a quite few years I would be guilty? If you've ever analyzing and I think it it's the way some people take chocolate which is if you're doing it professionally or academically you do have to have a process of pinpointing and finding all of us delicate compounds flavors and tastes to the point where you're deciding whether this chocolate is fine. Quality with beans have been fermented well of picked well or and so on and so you really digging in Bolt for me when it comes down to it. I have to take it back to base level when I smell it smell texture to like the taste from beginning middle and end and Roy after the after taste does it work with ingredients and now you get people who will say what wine and chocolate hard to pair. I find it very easy to pair. That's because I've tasted a lot of chocolate and a lot of wine and I can think about those flavors starting out and you taste piece of chocolate. How would you know which one to pick their hundreds if not thousands of them on the shelf to boy Oy? It's really difficult and all I say is by and tastes and eat what you like. Try It if you think it doesn't work. You're probably right because you own your tongue on your taste spots. And if it pairs well great. An I have always with all my tastings and events set to people if you prefer eating or milk white or dark chocolate with a cup of tea fantastic few think it works for you. It probably does but when it comes down to do you like if you do great no matter what anybody else says because you a half to want to eat again and again and again I'm almost runner of the cadbury cream egg at with the woman dipping hurt chips into a cream egg. Yeah well salty and sweet is massive business. The chocolate industry tree lady is not as crazy as she looked. She has no But I I do have a box of beautiful chocolates in front of me and you just pulled me a gloss of the move which was very kind of you for this time of day. A little SIP exactly Tell me tell me first. What vermouth measuring? This has gone brought us. This is the amber colored very light fresh smell wise. I've got fruit and it has to me sympathy botanical. Medicinal that's not meant to be a negative Tiv- term. I remember as a child having buttercup Syrup as a medicine and Dundee Line serapis kind of things those botanical can pass over very successfully into a Moose yes and drinks and this has that element of bitter sweet to it which if you think about bittersweet flavor dark chocolate is bittersweet already got a really good foundation and having having having a taste It's light on the tongue but the aftertaste is really really long It's beautiful sweet as well. But not over not overpowering only switch cleverly made it very sweet not overly sweet at the beginning and then this kind of botanical bitter dryness comes in the end and the chocolate made with it is the blue and gold marbled finish which represents the best colors on the buttocks. It's a beautiful bottle. Ferry Italian design obviously and sticking with Martini brand absolutely. I think if you are familiar with the Martini a line of Vermouth e you probably would be impressed by this particular RESERVA SPATULA pull. Educate me on how I should be eating the chocolates with the truth. We've had a drink of Mussa. Still got the flavor. There have a bite of one of the chocolates list. It's the blue and gold when it has a very soft center of white chocolate. We've got some Bombay Sapphire Gin. We've the VERMOUTH in there. Got Some Madagascans chocolate. which is thought delicate fruity chocolate? And very little else the predominant ingredient in that is the vermouth because I wanted that flavor to to last on the tongue. And it's it's a gorgeous balance. The dark chocolate is just bitter sweet enough like the vermouth. Once you've had the first bite and it's melted and swallowed. I have a bit more. Vermouth just passed me. A A glass of Rabin now I suppose that means that well to be polite I would have to try some of this. You would have to try that one as well this array of full of flavor for me I get kind of a smell of time leaves and herb Leary is very very very smooth. A little a bit Rich in feeling flavor and that's represented in the chocolate as well. We've got that lovely Madagascar chocolate again. But they could nash the filling inside. I just heavier more full needs a bit more impact. Bit more strength to it. So it doesn't get lost in the Renault so now that we've had some of the redeem we should be tasting some of the chocolate or I'd have made the chocolates a half dome a very smooth surface and a dark chocolate can inside Very very different indeed this one. Yeah very dock inside and a much more pungent hit it take. It took a long time to find the right chocolates to work with the to the most because Kosta so complex for example. If you choose orange which I love chocolate and orange you instantly got. I honestly know which chocolate to put with it to get that nostalgic fail. I love chocolate orange. What this it was? Try again try again try again. It's absolutely fantastic. The opportunity to have something that is quite unusual all to work with both familiar. It's funny how I haven't had either the Vermouth to start with but the familiarity and some of the botanical in. I don't know where that's from. I'm from my many years past of tasting and eating but there is something in them and all my team who tried to. There's something in recognized but I don't know what it is. I think a lot of people might say I've I've never had vermouth on its own. I've had a Martini Shaken oster Martini or I've had it as a mix of had it in an aground. Have I had it with chocolate would would I tried it if it wasn't in the chocolate maybe not so my job and my responsibility is just to inspire people to try something different. Because that's what I've had the opportunity. It's due to create the chocolates. I think you've done very well. Thank you so much. That was really

A Dramatic Change in Ukraine's Wine Industry
"Ukraine is historically known for sweet wines produced in the warm climate of the Crimean Peninsula surrounded by the Black Sea in two thousand. There's an fourteen when Russia launched an invasion and annexed Crimea the region accounted for almost half of Ukrainian wine production the shook that followed load so the seeds for a creative revival young local winemakers as well as more experienced winemakers from the white a Black Sea region stepped in as they saw an opportunity in the market. One of them is be so at a nurse who had cut his teeth into demanding world of Italian wine making my my name is whistle. I'm the winemaker consultant of Bacon winery. Ukrainian new Weiner's two thousand and ten and it's vignettes hits were plotted in two thousand twelve in Mikolai region of ingrains on the black seat. What kind of wines do you make. We started would love experiments because the climate there is quite grew so not every rates variety could grow there and so we one year we followed the climates rainfall. Cetera et cetera before we made our choice so we have sixty percents of white varieties and votive reds we have seventeen rides Stoughton stoughton planting the biggest one from the White South Charlotte at Stadium Suggestion Verizon Alberino which Spanish variety but we have a lot of their mental right just like Tim Orazio for example so and then blowing says thrown the rates of the main things from rally. It's also Josiah variety and we've learned new from Spain some Merlot and we have also complicated from South Africa. I speak which is one of the most talked talked about new wineries in Ukraine. The Dry European wines that he produces are somewhat of a novelty in country used to drinking sweeter unfortified fight types of George Goudie runs Ukraine's largest winery schauble things that the future of wine making the country hinges on burrowing lessons from Europe's great vineyards but making the best of their own heritage to my name is Georgia Teresa. I'm a CO owner of shoveled winery. Shove wineries located needed in southern Ukraine near the city of Odessa. What makes Ukraine an interesting wind destination interesting wine culture at the moment well first of all. It's unique doc as any winemaker will say but any winemaker knows that the wind is born in the yard so our mean Let's say advantage is our that walk our unique soil which is sandy limestone with clay well located on the submits as Burgundian Bodo for the six point six. I will be located on the island between the Black Sea Lima so with creates a very unique climatic effects unique varieties and absolutely approach approach because we take care of every single grape only that we bring control the full process and truly make something special the profile of Ukraine wines. I'm not going to hide it. In the beginning we made a mistake we tried to to French were physically all the beautiful elements of the upon Sean for Dryer. European wines has been boosted by good wine Ukraine's leading importer of international points. The CEO Dmitry Crimsky explains explains historically people in Ukraine drink a lot of sweet or semi sweet wines which of course are not very healthy in my point of view you and it's difficult to drink them with food which in my opinion and should be drink. The tendency which we see today is that year after year the the consumption of these sweet semi sweet wines dramatically goes down and the consumption off the dry wines are going up and I believe this trend will continue senior and also in ten years. I believe we will have much more goods producers local producers in Ukraine and it would be not exceptional exceptional case when you can find more or less normal wind from Ukrainian producer but it would be much bigger choice of these winds. The resurgence is of Ukrainian winemaking means that good wine has also started to stock local producers are trying to became better and learn more and they using using the international technology they invite consultants from Europeans and other countries and we see good wine will have quite quite a big section of Ukrainian binds taste them all the time and then all the best to what we believe we put on the shelves makings an art that develops over the centuries trees Goodwin's head some reminder may believes that there is still much work to be done before Ukraine winemakers catch up with their counterparts in the West. Today we have not so many experienced people who knows how to work well in vineyards and so we don't know steal our own own terriers because you need any to invest some money into to chip what works well and what what works well and the final problem is legislation cassation. We can change we can that make time goes faster about we can change some legislation system right now. It's really complex for small pro to assert to make something and to sell well things are looking up for Ukrainian wine wool goes on and Russian bullishness shows no signs of abating bore has taken a toll on Ukraine and the country's economy is in dire need of international investment. I see Ukrainian wine market attracts evermore attention shen from lodge Western winemakers and local winemakers such as B so at the now learn to work the local terroir to its full potential.

"bombay" Discussed on Myleik Teele's Podcast
"And we've got a couple of maybe two, and we gotta go. I did you ask the question. You little you look like y'all y'all got the Bombay's. That's why. Okay. We'll go. Hi, I'm precious. And I actually had two questions one. The first one is either you can answer this. But I'm curious like as you navigated your career path how much of your decision making has been like instinctive, so like, especially as you're like making a pivot and access because I'll just leave that that this curious. So that's the first question. How much of your decision making has been like instinctive like knowing when to make that shift and really trust in in like, you know, in the shift, and then the other question is this whole concept. A lot of people talk about it today. Like do the work due to work. You gotta do the work and my personal experience as an entrepreneur in, you know, navigating my own career. I think there's value in that statement. But what I find is especially so especially because you guys kinda came up in time where? Social media wasn't a thing. What I find is that people are so fixated on on the work or like trying to find the work or like, this whole concept of work that you get in some ways, like your true voice gets muted at trying to chase the next thing. And I find that there's seasons for work and their seasons for like seeking searching like finding like clarity on what your path is. I'm so sometimes I get kind of noise, but that statement on and that's not to take away from the value of work. But I'm curious like of your journey, and where might have been times where you had to like literally honor a season where it's not a season for me to be grounded. But maybe this season for me to be seeking searching. To those heavy. Heavy. Got it. I got part of it. Okay. There was like the season with the work and everything there was a probably like maybe a year in a half ago. I got into this like really tight space of not wanting to write not in. And I'm that's what I do. And it felt crazy because I saw people doing the work. And I'm like, oh, man. Then that's where that whole competition. Things starts to creep in you, see everybody doing their thing doing their thing. And I was just like I didn't understand what was going on. And it was probably like one of the first times where I didn't have instant inspiration bucket. You know, what I could just dig into and just jump on. And do whatever I needed to do. I had to grow out of it. And it took some time. I it took months actually in. Then I just came in. I would say this year. I came into a space where I'm like constant. I'm like this. I'm I'm on it. So I'm in that season. Now, I guess so while want to work might bring it come on. Let's go whereas before I was kinda like either running. From it or just not investing in it. And not looking at my ideas from different angles and stuff. I think when you're in the game for a long time at whatever feel you start to get repetitive. And I think that's what was messing with me for a little bit. And then the instinctive decision part, I'm a long thinker on big projects. Like, I'm thinking about things for like a couple of years down the road. And I've been like that throughout my career, and I've been able to to see like all right?.
China has new structures in the South China Sea
"Now the building spree by China in the South China Sea is not news. But the latest iteration of it is subtle lights have spotted what appears to be an entirely new facility built an extraordinarily quick time on Bombay reef in the parasol islands an area also subject to claims from Taiwan and Vietnam the new structure is around ninety feet long and forty feet wide. And wasn't there at old as recently as April? It's not clear exactly what it is. But it does feature a radar dome and solar panels LSU any ideas, what what what is a ninety foot long by forty feet wide fing with solar panels and a radar dome on likely to be by the lucrative. I would say it's an intelligence triangulation station, which would fit cents because there's lots of traffic of shipping going around the area. So it just how seem for venial and domain awareness. Let's see tuition awareness around the area that that's that's that's really sort of easy. I I must say that the fact that he's a was quickly build. I mean, let me just sort of give a bit of context they have because if we talk about the three big in the Spratly islands the contractions. I mean, which often the one the ones that we know most of them because they be if you take theory cross fury crosses is is bound to one point five times. The whole size of throw at ports ethers, no small place by by by by no. Combined. If you take me she free and the whole reef in the lagoon inside is about the size of it. More in between zone one and zone. Two of London. Buck a whole fleet there, and and you'll have trouble to so the Chinese are now accustomed in terms of scale, I've reconstruction or a oil island building, a miniature installation building in the middle of the South China Sea would stuff that my comparative terms you make this one look like the thing that you do Sunday morning before breakfast, which is basically what they did. Really an I think it was interesting here. The real intimate of the story is how the CSI. Yes. Asia mountains piracy initiative has now ended the different type of game. And which is as soon as the Chinese are out there, most notably CGP is going out there and south East Asia trying to make this absolutely interesting yet, extremely difficult to believe narrative of China as the new group Lakhta, the actor that he's defending corporation win win, interactions and other bits and pieces as he goes around trying to tell the story they come up with the latest imagery say like right about that. And what about this this this new artificial construction that is the biggest despondent in the works that you can have naming shaming really doesn't go down well with, gene? And the thing that's the real of the story the timing of hitting out to these new imagery, which suggests that either the Chinese, Don. Care anymore about being named and shamed. All the something else cooking up and my fear is that they probably being given by Washington red lines, not including certain parts, the South China Sea. And so they moving with trimmings around those on which subject, Robert, how concerning is it a potential that people don't quite appreciate where each other's red lines are because of course, we had the situation reported recently that occurred I think in September near miss between American destroy the USS data, and and the Chinese destroy the Lonzo yesterday they had a flypast if he will by two American beef, fifty two's, very close in the vicinity part of a regular pattern of such missions. This is of course, all fun and games until someone loses an eye, but how how pulsa believes that both sides are trying to make it in their from their own vision quite global because as we know that you know, what?

The Decentralized Cloud Computing Blockchain Network
"To focus on Asia. So late last week, I'm speaking with the guys at Neo about the impact of blockchain on Asian markets. And today I want to speak to the co founder of elf, which is the Asia based cloud computing block shirt. Network is focusing on becoming a global company. Now is a smart contract platform that will allow businesses to take full advantage of blockchain technology, and he's aiming to transform those horrendous complex business operations. That previous generations just accepted and do something about it in our immediate future. But in no familiar rambling on so book and hold until it as I beam your ears all the way to Singapore. So we can speak with Xueliang Chen the co, founder of elf. So massive, warm, welcome to the shows ruling. Can you tell the listeners a Labatt who you are and what you do? Hello? Everyone. My name is Chen. Julie. Sandy Koufax. CEO of Alf. Yes. Prior to that, I was a strategy comes out multinationals and governments of different topics. And yet slowly I moved into technology 'cause I have a generic background. That's where my passion is started with looking into various projects at in blockchain industry. Then finally met the right partner to foam to start out together. Now you all the co, founder of the issue based cloud computing block chain network, a mind to standing ease these kind of a small contract platform that would allow businesses to take full advantage of blockchain technology and also will transform complex business operations in the future. But can you tell. Exactly what it is and also what makes you guys unique from all the other solutions out there in the similar space without getting into the details. So what else is is we're in you up blockchain system and what we're providing is a high performance sister so that a we use a monkey Chint structure. Each smart contracts, we will have their own side chain so that they do not interfere with each other. And also we enable the notes to row now a cluster of computers, so that makes execution much faster and announced more complicated applications to run on top of that. So EMS show. We're really trying to make a business Ronnie on Shing wing facing and also more customizable in terms of what a we are unique is that where the first one actually enable the notes up to rob last of computers said this makes it much. Easier to scale up in terms of our computational capability at those are storage capability. And also the weight Howie introduced. A mounting structure of Jennifer is a diversity of ecosystem in how to to open up many possibilities. Held business want to run on blotch now don't if it's more full my life in IT. But before we talk about any solution, I always want to understand the exact problem before even thinking about, I think technology into the mix. So can you help listeners visualize the three problems that you see across the digital landscape, which are performance resources and segregation and also the lack of governance. So if you're looks back the evolution of blockchain. So I started as wind use case. Basically, it's bitcoin as a cross-border P2P payments eastern Mobutu towards a storage of battery right now. So that is basically just why use case then here comes the invention of smart contracts. So this. Opens up many more possibilities basically to allow a contracts to execute it your trust myths way. Yes. So you know, once the door has opened up, he basically enables us to serve meetings of customers from a business point of you ever done this list to a a our limitation which is on the performance side. So if you really believe that log chain is Gallup serve businesses for the mass adoption. We need a high performance in high speed to accommodate that. So that is the first problem that we need faster and more capable blockchain system to execute smart
