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. Same Cornelia says, sometimes, it's easy. You just read someone's cast by their surname sometimes you cannot hide and how about your real surname is it easy to hide your? Name doesn't go my cost us a k. that this wife immediately when I only seven, they will ask me whole willing come from which part of the state you come from. There had to ask a follow up question. 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. Indian Austin Indian to find overcast he would say. Which stadium by Bertha, by choice and. 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. John. Day He's a scholar at Harvard and he wrote a book called cast matters I am A. Child of a former landless labourer and someone who is to clean toilet. into the houses of the dominant caste people. So I'm a I'm adult Indian, and when I come to, of course, America I am a person of color. This two identities that help him see things that other people don't see for example, suraj points out this video they came out last fall. Okay. So what we're GonNa Cook today is an Indian recipe. Yes. Because you are yes. Okay. This is a video filmed in the kitchen of the actor and writer Mindy Kaeling on this day when Senator Comma Harris has stopped by to cook. So we Indian actually were both south Indian guests come Larisa Jamaican father and a mother from Chennai in southern India looks like the entire one half of my family.

"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.

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
Sameer Pandya on "Members Only" Book
"Everyone John Wartime here. Sports illustrated tennis podcast. Everyone is doing well our guest. This week is severe Panja. Who is a professor at the University of California Santa Barbara teaches creative writing Asian American literature, and also more importantly for our purposes has just written a terrific tennis book members only which tennis figures prominently both as a plot device in a metaphor I. I absolutely devour this book. We will link it link the Amazon page on our show page, but this is a fun conversation talking about tennis talking about writing talking about tennis as a storytelling device full disclosure Samir I share a publisher and publicist, so I want to dispense with that, but this was a really fun conversation a fun book timely book. I think people will love book members. Only it's called, and here is a on enjoyable half hour conversation here we go. I start off by congratulating him. I really you know people. Binge Watch TV shows I. binged dread members only and. Plowed through edited, it did not disappoint. Grad seriously congrats I. Mean it's it's great. It's it's really. SMART, and funny, and I thought we'll talk about this later. I thought very topical, and it's also does. Does tennis right so you succeeded on many dimensions as far as I'm concerned. CONGRATS I. I will say that you saying it did tennis right? Is means particularly lot because you know. I think. In terms of different kinds of readers, right, there's there's. Specific details if I'm reading something in if somebody gets a core detail wrong, which is not that big of a deal? It can be. It can break it for me. You know I'm Mike. Okay I can't do this anymore. Right I can't go down this road trusting this person and so I'm really happy to hear that I mean. Tennis is a big. I love the sport and we can also talk about that as well, but so that's great. Thank you I I. I wrote it with a certain kind of. Kind of propulsion in mind, right and I kinda wanted to be read that way, and then hopefully there other things. You know that you can go back to, or you can think about in ways in terms of how Raj operates in this in this book that can take a little bit more consideration, but you know in these in. These days. I want to read a book quickly. And I think in some ways I wanted to write a book that people could read quickly as well. The I say it's your talk. Not I feel like you're talking about a nonfiction book and everything's on the table. Right everything the next serve I feel I. Don't know what lessons You'd like me to take I don't know how much we can reveal here. Well, let's start you. To your character, so let's let's start there To to tennis fans, it is not spelled R. A. J. as your character is, but you know Raj is a name of relevance. Tennis fans You, you mentioned the details. You Got Right now. I think you're absolutely right. I think the second somebody writes about tennis of calls. A rally volley! We've got issues right? You did not do that this either was a studious research or else. You really have some grounding in tennis. What's what's your background sport? Yeah, you know so I so we came. We moved to America when I was eight years old. 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. York For five years where I had my first academic job. Getting Court New York as you know, is not an easy task, and so I have always kind of played the game, and then also I just love the game the pro game as well right, which is that I wasn't quite. Aware of the Borg McEnroe Connors era, but I think I really started watching you it with lendl real under at Burgh those are the I think in Michael Chang, so that was kind of mid might time said mid eighties moment. And so I've been kind of a fan of the sport in that way throughout the time and then. You know it's a great middle aged sport like I, love. I love the sociology of it. The player talking yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, so in both of those things, so that's why I'm just. It is as a kind of as a spectator as a player It's a one sport that I kind of gravitate towards the much.

"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
"bombay" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Menu
"Here in the UK. Hey D- Schumer's in less than ten years become one of the country's best loved restaurant institutions with its seven locations in the country it has gained and fame for its modestly priced Bombay Comfort food now the secret's off the dish room kitchens are out there as the team behind the company have have released the Cookbook de shoot from Bombay with love. I met Shemyakin co-founder of here. Midori House studio one to talk about the new book. How Bombay still inspires the restaurants team and first of all what dishes food philosophy is. I think food is if I could could summarize it in a phrase is on become food and we've long had an affair with Bombay and for me from fairly early in life and and our food really is off aw version of all the food that we love Bombay but the very best version of it so we we spend a lot of time and a few times a year we're in vampire trying different things and we always seeking to to find the best version of a certain dish if it's a a bomb Baiji which is mashed vegetables with some sort of buttered bonds or whether it's what up are we always looking for the best ones in we're determined to find and every time we go. We might find something different that someone else has done that. We can sort of add or embellishing and then producer version of the best comfort food. What was it like to launch issue the first issue you opened it in. Covent Garden back in two thousand and ten. Did you have a clear idea off what you were doing. Back in. The day was kind of radio concept already then no I. I don't think it was and I think you know any entrepreneur whether in restaurants or otherwise you head for a direction and you don't go there you go somewhere else. You change and you have to improvise. I think initially we thought we were doing smallest site and then we this become a bigger site as a concept came together. We decided that breakfast is really key in that hadn't appeared before then and eventually really we got to the point where we were pitching for the site. which is the onset? Martin's lane so we take the concept for that and the way we got that site was remember. My father had said you liked the site and which said. Yeah we had a pitch for with the land and he said well if you really want it. Why didn't you also landlord to come home and taste your food so we did that. At that stage. We would just cooking in the backyard on the grill so so we set up a bar we did some powerpoint made the landlord drunk yet his people that there's advices and eventually thought we made him too drunk to make a proper decision but he came back a month later and said we would like it to give you the site and we're in competition. I think a lot of established players and we were obviously brand new and I think that was when the concept really came together. I think is important to mention that your main inspiration has also been Bombay's Iran cafes waste that Dirani cafes are a really interesting deep and sort of rich very thin seem heritage started by immigrants from MM Persia from Iran in the early twentieth century late nineteenth century and there is a restaurant parties an came to Bombay from religious persecution and they started settling in the city and for whatever the reason they ended up setting up cafes on the street corners. Bombay was being reclaimed from the sea. There were plenty of new street corners. Hindi's had a superstition and by the nineteen sixties over four hundred of these cafes now foldout this any twenty or so left but what was very cool about these cafes they were real sort of shared space cafes inspiration in many ways was maybe the aspiration back the day was European cafes and you can see traces of that in the marble floors and the marble tables or the checkerboard tiles on the floors and the slowly spinning ceiling fans the ancestral portraits on the wall and the sort of the way it's decorated but what was really cool about these places was that as outsiders there had to let everybody in because they were not of the city and in India eating at that point point was very segregated so in England for example we have the tradition of taverns which goes back centuries. India doesn't have that very segregated easing where social classes and religions just I did not mix and this is a place where you would see the sort of barest and the High Court. You might see a hooker. You might see a taxi wallow. You might see a regular family just eating out for leisure. It hadn't happened before and what's very cool about this is that nine hundred forty seven was the independence of India partition happened at the same time and there was a great violence. Two or three million people died. It was pretty horrific and memories of Bombay are very joyous of independence memories in Calcutta very bloodstain Calcutta and Delhi polygraph it also partly because of the cosmopolitan culture of Bombay where people people didn't Knicks and part of the reason for that was shed spaces like these Irani cafes were clearly. If I'm a Hindu Christian Muslim together breaking bread we are less likely to slice each other up the next day. I think that was a real impact on the city. Exactly that idea of bringing everyone in is kind of what you're doing with dish room now as well. Isn't it what we'd love that people come to him that it's it's extremely affordable and you might on a day you would see people from the city or you might see a wealthy steel billionaire magnet with his family but he'll be sitting right next to a poor student who really values is the fact that we talk about the child all day two pounds fifty and I think that there aren't many places where that actually happens and it is really lovely. See Lots and lots of different types of people rubbing shoulders condition. There's been an incredible amount of excitement about the release of your book dish room from Bombay with love. This book is on my desk for a couple of weeks and it's been about twenty five people who've been asking for this asking when you're going to come over for. VN whether you are going to bring some food you by the way we see something you've done about that in a minute but I got the understanding understanding in your Book Release Party that actually you haven't shared these recipes with many people saw before this is the first time no we had two billion chef into share my being and I'm sort of laughing at that but it was a big deal for us to share some of these very treasured recipes like the black doll like even the Chili Jam in the Bacon non-royal which is key constituent of that and we were very worried that by giving these secrets away. We're giving something away in a way in the end. We decided that look this is. This is who we are. If people cook this home it's fantastic stick and would love to share this and I hope they still come to the restaurants. What do you recommend the most wanted recipes from this book. The one that people ask about most the black doll and I think that it's a very special recipe. It's a recipe that are chef gleaned from years of working in kitchens and his understood and he sort of made it his own and I think it's not an easy recipe to master. There are only seven or eight ingredients in it and the techniques have to be carried through and eventually you do get this dish which I think is delicious in its simplicity that has such deep taste and flavor and it's not easy to achieve achieved but I think this recipe will guide either. Could you tell me about the process of what it was like working on this book. I think first of all I have to mention. It's very interesting how you have speed it into different. Chapters basically all Beijing food. It's like a perfect day in Bombay really starting from breakfast what you have then for mid morning snacks lunch after refreshments and there's also I here's a continuing third. This food was the structure your idea. Where did that come from. Did you have a clear idea of what this book should be like when he started working on it we started to I'm the book was originally maybe the structure of it was inspired by something called the Bombay boot camp so when anyone stayed in business for five years or more we you take them to Bombay with us and I remember we decided to do this when we were pretty small and Covey my co-founder and looked at each other and said no one's ever GonNa stay five years. It's fine. We can make this commitment this this year we're taking thirty five people with us to Bombay to show them all the things that we love and that trip became known is three and a half or four days. Maybe more maybe four and a half days is called the Bombay boot camp and we take take everyone see everything we care about in Bombay and then we thought well that must be the way we would structure the book and then we thought well. Let's structure it for morning tonight. When we take you to a favorite breakfast places and eventually you end up at lunch afternoon snack first second third dinner and drinks and and I learned that you really ever do that in one day but it's nice to think about crazy sort of food day now. What what would your ideal day be like in Bombay. I'm just wondering people listening to this program. What kind of recommendations would you have for them where to go starting from your breakfast. I continuing all the way for lunch. I would use this book as a guy but I wouldn't attempt to one day but I think my favorite breakfast is a place called Kiani and Co and it's a delightful Irani Cafe and you can go there. Go early as you can. I think it must open at seven or so but go as you can because it's very very quiet and peaceful. Take a book or a copy of the newspaper and have some Chai have an Omelette awesome McCurry which is so spice scrambled eggs and just relax into the ambience and the atmosphere and for me is one of those places is that a city as busy as Bombay can be a very intimidating sort of place and for me these cities and I had the same experience I think in New York lesser in London because I've lived here for so long own bit once you find your places of refuge then the city becomes human and for me. Clan is one of those places that may Bombay human you could just sit there and be there and enjoy the food and enjoy the relax laxness and you can look out onto the street and the fans are spinning in the street goes by and you do genuinely feel relaxed and happy big in the day so I would recommend that as sort of I start what what about after that. I think it's nice to do. I mean South Bombay has so many places to walk and to look around and we one place that I love going to is a place called Horn Aman circle which just the old Bombay Green. Actually I mean it's one of the first places at Bombay started from and just sitting in there. It's a beautiful sort of almost like a small park right in the middle of Bombay and it's a real refuge future sort of plants every there are beautiful buildings around the place. You can really sort of get attuned with with this sort of relaxed part of the city I think for lunch. I would have to say if you're doing this. Foodie too who I would send you to a place called. Britannia restaurant and Britannia was opened in nineteen twenty-three. I wanted to say and it's a family called the corridors and mystical humour or is a remarkable man and when you go there and I think he does this with every customer wants you sat down. He will ask you what you want to eat and they'll tell you what you want to eat in fact and he quite often leans over it to customers and he has his enormously thick glasses which are like the bottles of coke bottles and he will lean over to you and fix you with a stare and he will say do. Noel how old I am and you don't know quite how to respond you might say Mr Bohannon. Look you look pretty old to me but you're in good shape and he will say Amazon is this the restaurant and my father started it in nineteen ninety-three then he will go along and he will eventually put the plate of food in front of you and he will quite tense until you smile having taken a bite and then he will breathe a sigh of relief and be happy. He's he's an amazing amazing fellow. Who's got this Restaurant Britanny. It's in Balata state and Ballard estate was an old commercial estate built by the British but now it's sort of quiet backwaters again a nicer to sleep part of Bombay and how does the day continue after this I mean I think.

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.

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? They've whatever they've got left. But the Americans very keen that the Royal Navy run a boat or a ship or patrol through every so often, and this is navy freedom of navigation freedom of navigation, very very important, and they've got the French side with this

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 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.
