"That line I. Thought I always thought the president was not powerful figure. Why think what I've learned his own that figure is extremely powerful but not in the that we think not in the policy, his policies coming go but. In this idea of what is the story of America right now, and what does the story that we're telling our children right now that is like immensely powerful that I didn't know you know as you think about the story that you want your kids to grow up into what do you want the story to be that they would be able to tell looking back on the years we're about to go into. That's a hard question because I feel like that's what I'm going through right now and I see my daughter and my son who's one three. Trying to it's sort of the greatest pitch I've ever to do was pitch them on what the world is and I don't know what the world is but I think the main thing that I am trying to instill in them is The world doesn't exist in a story. There's no beginning middle and end. It just keeps going as maybe the biggest Kahan of story that movies is that there is some sort of happy ending at the end. No, it's like it is a constant wave and were always fixing things and it's messy and it's complicated and you think you have one answer and then you experience some things he realized maybe there's another answer to me. I want them to know that it. It's always going to be messy. But to be an empathetic to wherever when comes from to be kind and also to know.

"One story each night starting October nineteenth and ending on Halloween. From iheartradio and blunt house television listen to Aaron, menkes thirteen days of Halloween on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcast. So, you direct your first major feature film two thousand step up to the streets and then Justin Bieber never say never now you see me too. There's a lot that kind of leads you to crazy rich Asians crazy, which is a whole. Different level how'd you get from where you started to there in the space of a decade? why was I got very lucky coming out of film school. I made a short musical film that got people's attention. This was before Youtube. So this was on VHS tapes or DVD are that we would do at our dorm, room? And Steven Spielberg sought. So when Steven Spielberg sees it, I'm twenty one, twenty, two years old the whole industry. Is like WHO's this kid? So I got attached to some stuff early It wasn't till five hundred away actually made my first movie but all those five years were really important for learning how to develop and work with riot bears and and work with a studio making those the next six movies over the course of eight nine years. I didn't know who I was an artist like this is me just learning how to make a move in Jenner. I'd never made a music video or commercial I'd gone from wedding videos. Bar Mitzvahs to student films and now making you. Know Twenty million dollars thirty million dollar movies for big studio. So and then at a certain point I was like, Oh, I've done all these movies and they've all made a lot of money I've worked with the Rock and Morgan Freeman but who actually am I actually my friends my very good friend said to me John, you have the best life because you've made people money you have money you're great. You're fine. But nobody knows your name and nobody knows which you are. So you're sort of like you're living the ish life and that's the best you can go out. And I was like Oh thank you. Thinking about like I think that's not good. I don't WanNa be ish like this. That's so terrible. What is making me ish why doing things that are safe? Why will what is it that I bring that? No one else can bring what movie that I I only I can make and like I said before that, that was a moment where I was already dealing with my sort of cultural identity crisis and I went looking and I actually found in the heights and crazy which is at the same time sign up for crazy which in the heights i. Because the immigrant story, the story of a of a home in a community spoke volumes to me even though I wasn't a never been to Washington Heights Lynn's music and his story was exactly my story and this idea that it also was very patriotic like when the American dream is being attacked like I am living proof that the American dream is real. When say when people say that's not what America is unlike that's exactly what made me I would have could never have this story anywhere else the parents can never have that story. So anyway, that's that's sort of what led me to those things and I thought they were. Going to be two projects for myself and working to make any money, and then I was gonNA crawl. Back in do another studio thing. But luckily they they hit a nerve of I. Think a lot of people were feeling around the world. So you come into this knowing that this is going to be the big commercial success again, a Note Kenneth Vindicate Your Decision. You just believed in it and you do it even who wasn't GonNa do as well Kinda monetarily. Yeah. I actually literally told my agents and managers like so I just need like a few years to not make us any money agent to like make per people. What I'm about and I had made a student toward the only time I ever made a short about being Asian American was in college. And it was for my senior movie and it was Gweilos and. We showed it and everybody loved it but I felt so. Vulnerable watching I felt very uncomfortable watching it. So to do actually a bigger movie on that same subject I felt like I was just in a different place in my life and I could maybe the maybe the thoughts started back then but I sort of processed it through all that time. So. What was the discomfort? Was it not being sure which audience would respond well, rethinking of your family rethinking of just kind of mainstream audience and what they'd make of it why? Why do you think felt difficult to watch? I. Think There's a lot of all those things I think I was taught to not complaining. So the idea that I was exploring this idea of how you felt. with if people said something to you or did something you felt like it didn't help anything it why what's the point of this of talking about how when you brought your dumplings to school people would complain how it smells. So you would dump I would dump my mom's dumplings in Bush before getting to school I found out that everyone has the story But at the time I did talk to other people who have that exact same experience. It's like a thing like everybody's like, Oh yeah. The the doubling dumping story like everyone has that at least asian-americans like. Your mom is GonNa feed you you're gonNA give you food and they're gonNA give you Asian food before you go because that's they now and then no one at school understands why your locker smells and they're gonNA look at you and now you are the guy that smells or who sweet the smell. So you just get rid of that part. So I think all those things like bringing all of that up. I. Didn't want to hurt my family. I didn't want to also like hurt my own focus on like who I am, but I think at a certain point. You realize you didn't want to deal with because you didn't know anyone else was going through that and I think when I think about my that kid back then I wish he knew that there's a lot of you out there and it's okay. So you have used success with crazy rich Asians but then with success comes another kind of change right? which expectations especially when you're first when when people haven't seen this kind of Asian representation long time. Know even though it's it's a huge success in so many people in such a moving way. See themselves represented you're also come in for criticism. You didn't tell the whole story of Singapore or you know the casting wasn't all like the right kinds of Asians and I've noticed in the way you responded to that at the time some incredibly generous and thoughtful takes on your part and I wonder if you share them here, kind of how what is like seeing that kind of criticism amid the success and then how you went about responding to. First of all Asia doesn't want me to represent them Asian Americans little more okay with it but even then they've they're so so on it I think is great like. How Nice that we can actually debate how we want ourselves to be represented because we actually have opportunities to do that hungry. We can debate casting choices and what kind of stories do we want for the future and what we want now and what is entertaining and what is commercial? I don't ever blame anyone took me a little bit but I really don't blame anyone for coming after me. Even when I was making the movie, it's hard to cast because everyone's judging you who you're casting and how you're casting. You're just like I'm just trying to make just I'm staying focused on trying to make thing. I blame the lack of representation on that to me I'm like, yeah, you should be angry you should be sensitive and you should speak up for what you think because we're doing it now like we're creating what I think our children will see as what we think it should be like and maybe they'll disagree and break that as well. But like right now there's no rules and the catches be me in who have so many more storytellers which will also ease the tension. You can go attack that person that person. But in the end of the day was still accomplishing the same thing which is but show all the shades of gray that we are. But show that we are not China we are not the Chinese government we are not Japan. We're not any of those things at least Asian Americans are making. We're very unique in this we have. Feet several different worlds and and I think that that's really unique and special and and. What used dump out in the bushes of my school now? The lineup for fifteen.

"Can only become a better filmmaker from that or better storyteller or better person to understand all the different complicated emotions of what does representation mean you know. Movies are to our experience. So you're limited and so definitely those lessons get carried onto something like in the heights when you think about all rights who of all these Latin American countries have we not represented yet and how representing or do we need to or like. What is this all about? Actually one thing that I've really enjoyed watching From the outside as you seemingly using your crazy rich Asians clout now to for example announce that you're developing a movie based on the Thai cave divers story than we give voice to the actual people the actual Taibbi voices involved and then in the heights. It's really cool to see you collaborating with lin-manuel on this. I know that it's going to be huge in terms of representation hopefully on the scale. That crazy occasions was but for the next community as well So you're wrapping up that experience now. How has the in the heights shown or allowed you to use your voice in in use your power to not only be a force for for representation but like intersectional representation? Yeah One I. It's like a dream to work with the greatest song writer of our generation. Maybe of all time lin-manuel Miranda's and not only that but watching how. He's a leader in his community. I mean you WanNa talk about well versed in the policies and politics of the Latin x community like he and Kiara our full on the their they do the thing that I can't. I can't talk about all the politics of Asian things because I just don't know all those things I'm just not that person of I like to make movies. But they know all those things. And it's it's so amazing to watch how they interact. They still live in the community that Lynn grew up in and this story. The songs are written about this neighborhood in these neighborhoods about the Bodega owner on the corner to see him. Show up an extras casting. Call these extra. Has Everybody jumps into room? They take polaroid's and they leave and then I look at the polarized and they decide like what's the look that we want. He shows up at that thing. He text me on Sunday because having like Sunday at three. Text me where is that? Oh it's like I think at this address. I don't even know he goes. He shows up and it's he talks to his people and his people being his neighbors telling him how much this means to him that they're here and that they've shown up and that apologized for taking their parking lot. We shoot and it just reminds me like I've got to be a better leader in that. You have to be that person to take that extra time if you want to talk about representing people. It's not just about making a movie and I learned a lot in crazy. We can't just go hide. Once I make this movie. I have to actually take action and I got to bring stuff to Lynn to like to watch him do that and then tell him like these. Are the things that at once crazy? Rotations came out. I learned represented it to be very specific about what sauces are on the table for that meal. Better be the way thereof Wella. Put It on the table We better be specific about Hair and and and patterns on their clothes or the voice on the radio it better be from that region a better not be a Spanish voice. Because that's different than what's happening here. We had a very open onset so actors could say this is not the way it would be moved the camera reset the lights like. That's these are the things that we had to stop and do because that's the type of movie is the type experience we're making. Is that time in our podcast. We ask our guests to share a bad Asian confession and that's any story or life experience or situation that's made you feel like you're a bad. He's so what's yours. So what's my well? Well probably the worst Asian thing I did was my mom maybe take violin as a kid and piano and I didn't want to rehearse so she would force us to practice every day for like thirty minutes and eventually she was like. I don't care what you do. You have to sit at the piano and so I would sit at the piano and Bang. The keys as loud as I could and make up songs about. How much hated piano? I would torture player myself voluntary piano wire so I would think probably Asian parents would think. I'm a terrible terrible. My brother's probably sisters think I'm a terrible human being for torturing them that well thank you John so much for joining us. It's been really great to have you into talk about all these things into to unpack unpacked. Some of what we covered today. There's so much there's always so much to talk about their so much like I really actually really wanted to talk about not understanding what representations really meant. I mean I understood intellectually and then when I think it William you who put up that Hashtag starring John Show literally the image just the image of John Show and Joshua's trust in the right spot of being a movie star and being a leading man and he put him in all those posters and just that image broke my brain. I remember not being able to get it out. I'd been in the movie business for so long and I remember looking at that and being like that. That is not just a a movie. That should be done. That is a marketable movie and that is a movie that can be done and yet it's not an it just like literally collapsed. My brain of what should be possible. I've been like a to the studio business and a student of what can be sold and what can capture like pop culture so as just as something as simple as seeing the image to know that it's possible can change everything and I see what Craciun has been able to do. I know that there's so many more walls to break our brains. We don't even know about yet. Hi there. Do you have a bad Asian confession. You'd like to share with us. Call US at two one three nine eight six five six five two. That's two one three nine eight six five six five two. Maybe we'll even play it on the show. Blake this one coming to us from a listener. Who GREW UP IN ALASKA HIGH? I want to leave my bad Asian confession so I am half Thai half white and I grew up in a very homogeneous small town in Alaska and as find that I am content only navigating between like in my Asian enough where my wide enough and I confess that. There was one time when I was in highschool to dance clash and we had a survey and they had the response where they were like. You know checking the box here race but it wasn't check all the PRI- check one or the other and I didn't know how to answer that question I was like I don't have to choose which side I consider myself as and I asked my teacher and she said Oh well you look white you should just put white and I confess that I followed her instructions and that moment is still on my mind today so I hate having to choose between the two entities as a happy person.

"And if you could ever like yourself as the subject of a story it's like it almost takes a work of imagination to like you know. See that who you are can. Yes object store. I mean I basically grew up in. I think that's part of both my power and my weakness is like. I grew up in an environment in the Silicon Valley in the eighties and the nineties. And so I know that perspective because I grew up in the perspective of like Oh are Asians the other when you're surrounded by it. You are indoctrinated it and so you know what they're thinking and I grew up in a Chinese restaurant as well. So the fears of what people think of you are completely intertwined in your brain and in your heart. I think the Internet changed so much because when I watched youtube video and for instance and dance like I saw how fast the perspective of what Asians are as dancers in the dance world. When I started Asians were known as amazing hip hop dancers. But when I went to those tournaments and these these these conferences whereas they're six thousand Asia American dancers and their amazing hip hop dancers. And that's where they Kaba. Modern was job. Jabotinsky was there. Were all these amazing answers. And the world didn't know about it and in the span of like four or five years everybody knew about it and suddenly it's like. Oh Asians condense. When did you start going to these dance and I went? Let's see my cousin was going to San Diego State. And so she'd be like you have to come see this because you like dance and this is incredible and so. I want to say it was like two thousand six two thousand five. The collaboration or which dance competition was this They Will Aberration Star. Collaboration collaboration but there's also other ones but data for the first time. And that's when I did step up to I was like when I was creating sabotage like crews because I've seen these crews And Job Lock is like the. All Star like they weren't there was no ABC. At the time there was no nobody knew them they had never been filmed before so we got them very very early. But witnessing the shift of people seeing agents dancers and stink. Oh there can be the best. When you see these Korean dancers in those Uniqlo ads or in missy Elliott videos like it changed and I could see how fast that oh it just takes an example. I love that you have always seemed to love dance and music and sort of gravitated towards those areas in your work. Obviously I remember. I went to the set of your web series. You're super can't series the St shooting like a showdown seen in the town true we had. They're kicking us out in fifteen minutes so he just shoot like our whole last episode at fifteen minutes. It was insane. I was I was there. It was pretty great. And you really between that project and the step up movies and the Adam Chu dance crew. Which I'm GonNa make you explain to turn around and the Internet back then but you really seem to to be able to lean into these interests of yours but at the same time create company of talent like Harry Shum Junior. Got So many greats spotlights through your works with him and so many other dancers got on my rematch. Cast Nets smarr. All that stuff was crazy. It was crazy times. How did that like what? What kind of role did that project? First of all. How do you describe it now? Looking back I mean we were early and Youtube. There's two thousand seven two thousand eight. Maybe I don't know maybe two thousand eight nine somewhere around there and basically we had done step up to and Miley Cyrus had watched the movie and so she called our fourteen year old star of that movie atoms. Vanni who played Moose in the movie and left a message. He didn't answer he she him as I loved you in that movie congrats and didn't leave a number and so she's like fifteen or sixteen and he's fourteen. He calls me like. Oh my Gosh Miley Cyrus just called me. Can you get me her number? I'm like a I don't know how to get her now to call her age. He's like Yeah Asia. No I'm not going to do that but she was already had a youtube channel and we had already were thinking. Hey we should do some videos on youtube thing and so I was like she has her best friend. Mandy. Who's a dancer like? Let's challenge them to a dance battle and just challenger and maybe she'll answer because she knows who you are so we got our crew together and made this crazy video challenging her to a dance battle and two days later she answered and she had the biggest youtube channel at the time This is at the height of her sort of power. And when she answered us She got all her celebrity. Friends made it like music video and got included channing. Tatum and Jenna Dewan in their video. Which is kind of a slap in the face to us. We'll man dance battling real though we should. We should resolve more things. Thought those this was west side story digital like this real shit and people online like really got into it. People who hated Miley could be on our side and then people who love it could be on her side and we made another video. After and we pulled out our Rolodex we got like Sandler Lindsay Lohan. We got Chris Brown before the incidence of Diana. Ross Amanda bines before here incidents. We've got a lot of people. And then we got a huge amount of his we've got millions and millions of hits and at that time it was big and so then she answered again with like helicopters and Ryan secret and all these people about this whole thing which I remember it being just so huge but it's kind of an example of growing an Internet age community in a way very very like demonstrably has power. I mean you've also worked with Justin bieber twice and saw how how strong his phantom is. So it's kind of cool to see the Asian American community rally around Craze Rich Asians and that came out not that at all at all related to one another safe. You know all these I mean they are little bit though. That's that's what I wanted to ask about his Asian American dance crews and southern California's. Such a thing you know I went to Ucla. Watch them and it's so cool to kind of hear you talk about how. Yeah Yeah I mean I you know. And Jabber walkies like weren't they on like America's best dance crew or something like that but that was that was when like the world got to know them but before that they were in ACDC dance crew before they were actually as during while they were on there. They were in step up before they were ever On match you put you put the Jabber walkies on the map that you represented elsewhere. We film them for those for sure. I had already made my first studio movie and yet I still felt like when I would watch youtube. This is like energy and I reminded myself that. I didn't have to ask permission for anything like I could have a camera. I know how to edit and I ended all the. Are you to battle videos? I didn't have to answer to anybody. And that's an amazing confidence builder and powerful thing to know that you have at your fingertips and you can have millions of people watching it tomorrow. Not next week. When a marketing company goes not with the press release like just releasing it. There was a big lesson to me during that time knowing that I have no excuses not to make stuff at any moment that I wanna make

Oh Asians condense. When did you start going to these dance and I went? Let's see my cousin was going to San Diego State. And so she'd be like you have to come see this because you like dance and this is incredible and so. I want to say it was like two thousand six two thousand five. The collaboration or which dance competition was this They Will Aberration Star. Collaboration collaboration but there's also other ones but data for the first time. And that's when I did step up to I was like when I was creating sabotage like crews because I've seen these crews And Job Lock is like the. All Star like they weren't there was no ABC. At the time there was no nobody knew them they had never been filmed before so we got them very very early. But witnessing the shift of people seeing agents dancers and stink. Oh there can be the best. When you see these Korean dancers in those Uniqlo ads or in missy Elliott videos like it changed and I could see how fast that oh it just takes an example. I love that you have always seemed to love dance and music and sort of gravitated towards those areas in your work. Obviously I remember. I went to the set of your web series. You're super can't series the St shooting like a showdown seen in the town true we had. They're kicking us out in fifteen minutes so he just shoot like our whole last episode at fifteen minutes. It was insane. I was I was there. It was pretty great. And you really between that project and the step up movies and the Adam Chu dance crew. Which I'm GonNa make you explain to turn around and the Internet back then but you really seem to to be able to lean into these interests of yours but at the same time create company of talent like Harry Shum Junior. Got So many greats spotlights through your works with him and so many other dancers got on my rematch. Cast Nets smarr. All that stuff was crazy. It was crazy times. How did that like what? What kind of role did that project? First of all. How do you describe it now? Looking back I mean we were early and Youtube. There's two thousand seven two thousand eight. Maybe I don't know maybe two thousand eight nine somewhere around there and basically we had done step up to and Miley Cyrus had watched the movie and so she called our fourteen year old star of that movie atoms. Vanni who played Moose in the movie and left a message. He didn't answer he she him as I loved you in that movie congrats and didn't leave a number and so she's like fifteen or sixteen and he's fourteen. He calls me like. Oh my Gosh Miley Cyrus just called me. Can you get me her number? I'm like a I don't know how to get her now to call her age. He's like Yeah Asia. No I'm not going to do that but she was already had a youtube channel and we had already were thinking. Hey we should do some videos on youtube thing and so I was like she has her best friend. Mandy. Who's a dancer like? Let's challenge them to a dance battle and just challenger and maybe she'll answer because she knows who you are so we got our crew together and made this crazy video challenging her to a dance battle and two days later she answered and she had the biggest youtube channel at the time This is at the height of her sort of power. And when she answered us She got all her celebrity. Friends made it like music video and got included channing. Tatum and Jenna Dewan in their video. Which is kind of a slap in the face to us. We'll man dance battling real though we should. We should resolve more things. Thought those this was west side story digital like this real shit and people online like really got into it. People who hated Miley could be on our side and then people who love it could be on her side and we made another video. After and we pulled out our Rolodex we got like Sandler Lindsay Lohan. We got Chris Brown before the incidence of Diana. Ross Amanda bines before here incidents. We've got a lot of people. And then we got a huge amount of his we've got millions and millions of hits and at that time it was big and so then she answered again with like helicopters and Ryan secret and all these people about this whole thing which I remember it being just so huge but it's kind of an example of growing an Internet age community in a way very very like demonstrably has power. I mean you've also worked with Justin bieber twice and saw how how strong his phantom is. So it's kind of cool to see the Asian American community rally around Craze Rich Asians and that came out not that at all at all related to one another safe. You know all these I mean they are little bit though. That's that's what I wanted to ask about his Asian American dance crews and southern California's. Such a thing you know I went to Ucla. Watch them and it's so cool to kind of hear you talk about how. Yeah Yeah I mean I you know. And Jabber walkies like weren't they on like America's best dance crew or something like that but that was that was when like the world got to know them but before that they were in ACDC dance crew before they were actually as during while they were on there. They were in step up before they were ever On match you put you put the Jabber walkies on the map that you represented elsewhere. We film them for those for sure. I had already made my first studio movie and yet I still felt like when I would watch youtube. This is like energy and I reminded myself that. I didn't have to ask permission for anything like I could have a camera. I know how to edit and I ended all the. Are you to battle videos? I didn't have to answer to anybody. And that's an amazing confidence builder and powerful thing to know that you have at your fingertips and you can have millions of people watching it tomorrow. Not next week. When a marketing company goes not with the press release like just releasing it. There was a big lesson to me during that time knowing that I have no excuses not to make stuff at any moment that I wanna make

"chu" Discussed on Asian Enough

"John M. to filmmaker behind the movie's crazy rich Asians step up to the streets and GI. Joe Retaliation among many others. He's a silicon valley native and a graduate of USC and his next film in the Heights is a big screen studio musical. Very excited about it. About characters who live in the predominantly Latin next neighborhood of Washington Heights New York City in its adapted of course from the Broadway. Play of the same name written by Lin Manuel Miranda and Kiara Allegri cuties so John. Thank you so much for joining us. I'm excited to hear your voice. I'm here with us. In Beautiful El Segundo kill foreign the little edit room Surrounded by all the stress of finishing a movie so from your actual edit room Friday night. Yeah I'm in the actual room that on the couch. The I basically sleep on in front of the big board where I could have all the scenes and reshuffle and reshuffle. Until you find the right movie I feel like home but also at probably smells here. Well we want to take you back. Just a little rewind to a little movie did called Crazy Rich Asians yes. It was a huge huge critical commercial in historic success for you and the author Kevin Quan. Who wrote the original novels that it's based on and You also brought in this great cast of Asian American and Asian British and Asian Australian Asian Diaspora like Constance Wu. Henry Golden who you discovered. Yes crazy crazy. I think. That's like a pretty solid gift to and even like icons legends like Michelle. Yahoo is fantastic. So we want to ask first of all looking back on that experience. What were the biggest ways that the whole crazy rich Asians of it all everything Affected you both personally and professionally. It is very hard to comprehend to be honest. I think it's the first time now that I've finished in the heights or almost in the heights that I could actually process when people come up to be on the streets in New York City. Not where I'm from and come up to me and talk to me about crazy rich. Asians that like still shocks me to this day. It feels like both Seoul long ago but at the same time it feels like yesterday and to see our actors who I remember being on set showing Aquafina her scenes on the rooftop of a hotel room and her being in tears because he'd never seen herself in a movie before to think that she won a Golden Globe for best actress. She's dominating the game right now Henry Golding who'd never been in a movie before consonants gem and I mean you can go on and on for everyone in our list of Catholic that to me. I'm honestly still processing it. I think about this the other day like my whole idea who who I am as a filmmaker and as an artist and what I can be has completely shifted because of that movie like in what ways know. I got into this business off a short that I did at USC so yeah. I basically won the lottery like I got in Steven Spielberg's it. I got connected to all these movies to direct. I didn't make my movie to five years later but it was studio movies. I didn't have to do music videos or commercials or do other jobs and so well. That's great I also didn't know who I was as a filmmaker and I knew the things I wanted to make and we had fun and of course things like step up and Bieber's never say never and those were all amazing experiences for me and I love making them but I also was growing up at the same time and I didn't have the sort of playgrounds place to sort of figure myself out or who. What kind of stories I wanted to tell at that level. I just had to stay swimming and I guess it wasn't until right before it sort of chose crazy rich as in the heights of the same year. Two Thousand Sixteen right after a real our JEM and the holograms and right. After now you see me to and it felt like I was growing up thirty six thirty seven years old at the time I was looking at my life and being what how contributing to this medium that I love. I need to find stuff that tells people who I am and which means I need to pick stories that are scary to me and that means something more than just a movie and so I looked at stuff and found crazy rich. Asians which is a very personal idea of American going to Asia for the first time and immigrant story of a Community of immigrants in their kids in in the heights taking that those steps and saying these two or for me and now cut to four years later looking at them and seeing the impact of one of them and hopefully the impact of the other is. It just showed me that. I have power to make things that I expect to be in the movie world. And that's a different way to approach a business that you are just trying to survive in. You did all of these other movies which I have watched. I'm a fan of u two ways in crazy rich. Asians and also watch like any single type of dance battling movie and so it's like my genre but yeah I saw step up to the streets. Step Up Three. D and so I was just wondering like was there a reason? You didn't tell Asian American stories before you know whether that be struck or personal or whatever I think back like college and high school and I told stories that were fun to me. I mean I. I fell in love with movies of the movies that I grew up with. So you only that. That's how I see a movie in. So what are some of those movies? I mean things like back to the future like airplane Batman like Indiana Jones to me. Those are the movies that I love going to and would play with my toys and create my own stories with. I took me to another place and so when you don't see Asian characters being the heroes or romantic leads or any of those things I think you don't think that's what a movie is in a weird way and so even in school. I was too scared to sort of tackle my own idea of identity because I didn't know the answers like I did one movie at school at. Usc called Gouello is a silly little musical about an Asian American kid going to high school and sort of dealing with that but I was so uncomfortable with what I was trying to say with it. I'd never showed anybody after like we did a screening and the whole school watched it. But after that I didn't submit it to festivals. I didn't do anything nobody understood. Why and looking back. I feel very embarrassed that I didn't and I think as partly because I always felt like I would be judged for that or be put in a category of. Oh he just does like Asian movies. Or He's the Asian guy of course. He doesn't Asian expectations that you're constantly afraid to step on or get trapped in and when you don't know that there are others like you out there who feel the same thing. It's very sort of stifle everything off that whole part of my brain Let's scare scary to like rip. Open your your own expose. Yeah what's inside and if you could ever like yourself as the subject of a story it's like it almost takes a work of imagination to like you know. See that who you are can. Yes object store. I mean I basically grew up in. I think that's part of both my power and my weakness is like. I grew up in an environment in the Silicon Valley in the eighties and the nineties. And so I know that perspective because I grew up in the perspective of like Oh are Asians the other when you're surrounded by it. You are indoctrinated it and so you know what they're thinking and I grew up in a Chinese restaurant as well. So the fears of what people think of you are completely intertwined in your brain and in your heart. I think the Internet changed so much because when I watched youtube video and for instance and dance like I saw how fast the perspective of what Asians are as dancers in the dance world. When I started Asians were known as amazing hip hop dancers. But when I went to those tournaments and these these these conferences whereas they're six thousand Asia American dancers and their amazing hip hop dancers. And that's where they Kaba. Modern was job. Jabotinsky was there. Were all these amazing answers. And the world didn't know about it and in the span of like four or five years everybody knew about it and suddenly it's like.

Three Approaches for Doubt and Mistrust

"And now this jump right into the discussion around the Zenko on that was shared in the last podcast episode. So this Cohen says one day. Chaozhou fell in the snow and called out. Help me help me help me up. Held ME UP. A monk came and lay down beside him. Chow Chu got up and went away. And that's it. That's the Cohen. And I WANNA share first of all some of the thoughts that come from the Patriot community. Because as you know I've mentioned we we have discussions around the podcast in around the Cohen. And I WANNA share some of these thoughts so ellen says quote this is what the Co on makes me think of when experiencing difficulty emotions like grief or depression and your loved ones. Want to help. But there's no way to pull you out of those feelings or make them go away so often. The best way to help is just to be with you. While you're feeling them the feelings can run their course with someone you love by your side until you have the strength to get up on your own close quote and I agree with Allen's assessment here I think oftentimes we try to help someone and our way of helping isn't helpful and other times. You know all we really need to do is be with someone and just by being with them like in this case the monk lays down beside him and that's all it that's all he needed. Chaozhou got up and went away is what it says. Okay Matt says quote I think it is an example of reactivity chow falls and his initial reaction is to panic. He fears that he cannot free himself from the situation. The monk comes in lies beside him to show him that. The situation is not a crisis he too is lying in the snow and did so voluntarily in doing so one can see that there is no emergency lows quote. This is an interesting take on it. I hadn't thought about it from that perspective but I think again with these. Cohen's you know this is a an invitation for you to extract meaning or whatever you're going to get out of it for you and it's Kinda cool. That Matt stalled this. This is kind of a different angle to it that I think is accurate. And a lot of instances in life where we are in a situation and we're thinking how Megan to do this but it's helpful to know that somebody else has been in this situation and they were able to find a way to to cope with it or deal with it then I can too and I know I felt that before and honestly I think a lot of us are feeling this. Now with everything that we're going through with the lockdowns in the With with the covert nineteen. I was telling my wife this the other day how much more difficult it would be to face these uncertainties in terms of jobs and the potential financial repercussions. If if I knew this was just happening to me but somehow by knowing that the whole world is trying to figure out what to do about work in about Income and things like that somehow makes it so much less stressful. Because I know it's not just me. We're all trying to figure it out and that's kind of what Matt is talking about here so I I like that thought. I think there's something there to it. Suzanne says quote this Cohen. Really resonated with me and I was reminded of the key. Idea of Montessori. Education helped me to do it on my on. Chaozhou asks for someone to help him help them up. Which would be quite a passive way of reacting to the present situation like a child asking their parents to do something for them. Instead the monk lies down and shows Chow Chu the passivity of his response. Once having realized this Chaozhou is able to act for himself it up under his own steam and walk away and then she says it it also reminds me of the raft analogy the monk and his compassion are the raft which enables Chow Chu to get up and leave behind the monk. Which is the wrapped? Close quote. It's always fascinating to hear other people's perspectives on these stories. Because we're all in different places in life we've had different experiences in life and we see things from a unique vantage point. And that's what I thought of when I was reading Suzanne's take on this. Like what a cool way to see that again from a perspective that hadn't crossed my mind and the correlations that she's drawing that hadn't crossed my mind and I liked them They make a lot of sense to me and then I wanNA finish with one more with Nancy's thoughts so nancy says quote. This Cohen makes me think about when I have a problem or situation that is troubling me and I turned to a friend or a loved one for help. The best help I have received is when that person simply sits with me and listens close quote and that's getting back to kind of the way Ellen talked about it and what I kind of took from it. Which is that sometimes. The best help is the help. That's just being with someone and not actually trying to help that certainly a lesson. I took away from it and I think sometimes we see this in our own lives that the best way to help someone to just sit and be with them and to not try to help in fact. Oftentimes the trying to help makes the problem worse. I know I've experienced that Both as the receiving on the receiving end of that but also on the other end where. I'm the one who's trying to help and I'm catching myself that my health is not helping him. I don't know if you've experienced that would assume some of you have. You can kind of correlate this also with the concept of teaching people to fish instead of giving fish I've correlated this a little bit with the thought of with my kids like teaching them how to think rather than what to think so. Yeah my mind has gone to a lot of different places with this co on. But at the end of the day I like visualizing Chow Chu Falling in the snow. And calling help me up helped me up. And then among laying there next to him and Chacha just gets up and walks away These little stories can always be unpacked to gain a lot of perspectives and thoughts and teachings and again. There's never a right answer. The point wasn't the answer. The point was what did it make you think of in the process of thinking maybe learned something about yourself. I think that's what's cool about these. Cohen's

US grinds to a halt as Americans lock down to stop the spread of coronavirus

"Coronaviruses freaking everybody out well in corona virus news the British health minister and conservative member of parliament parliament Nadine Dorries has been diagnosed with corona virus now so the health minister of Great Britain has coronavirus mystery says she's been self isolating at home labour MP Rachel Maskell said she's been told to do the same **** met mysteries that apartment health in Britain said mysteries first showed symptoms on Thursday the same day she attended an event hosted by the prime minister right now U. K. had a documented total of three hundred eighty two cases as of yesterday six people with the virus have died in the U. K. in the United States the total number of cases now has surpassed one thousand cases in the United States we have twenty nine deaths so far the the clusters are happening on the coast mainly in Massachusetts New York Santa Clara California and up in Seattle Washington the first known US front of Irish cases announced January twenty first in Washington state the pace of diagnosis has quickened significantly in recent weeks at the start of the month seventy cases have been reported in this country most of them tied to overseas travel since then new cases have been pouring in by the dozens and then by the hundreds the coronavirus updates are coming fast and furious the mayor of New York bill de Blasio he said that there are lots of cases coming in at like dozens per day in New York City as testing is made available it is obvious that there are a lot of people who are least carrying corona virus without knowing that they are carrying corona virus or the the German public has now been warmed up to seventy percent of Germans face the possibility of infection that's going to Angola Merkel and of course the top US health official Dr Dr Anthony Fauci he said this is going to get worse so Dr Fauci said all hands are basically on track with this thing these are really simple keep the workplace safe keeping the home safe keeping the schools safe and keeping commercial establishing safe this should be universal for the country everyone should be doing that where do you live in his own that as communities spread or not when you have community spread you obviously going to ratchet up the kinds of medications that you have but at a minimum this is the minimum that we should be doing so everybody should say all hands on deck this is what we need to do in a non shocking news thanks to again the up and down of the corona virus news the stock market in creamed again it's just up and down insanely was up like a thousand points and then is dumped again back down a thousand points pretty amazing how the stock market is bouncing around like a yo yo no we're not gonna know honestly where anything stands until the end of April Megan McArdle has an interesting column over the Washington post a lot of people might really like everyone is looking around going I don't see a lot of car owners out there yeah we had a grand total of like four thousand deaths worldwide if you look at the flu every year and kills like a hundred thousand people worldwide minimum maybe hundreds of thousands of people worldwide every year so why are we also worried about coronavirus Megan McArdle has this statistical dot experiment to remind you that when there's an exponential growth factor things move really quickly right you don't see anything in the C. everything right it let let's say you have a pond with lily pads example that you get statistically and it explains why were also worried today if you have a pond with lily pads and the lily pads are going to overtake the pond as they grow in each day the lily pads double the number of lily pads double so let's say that day one it's one to which to death rates for right to keep stumbling on the very last day the lily pads cover the entire pond the question is at what point did lily pads cover half the pond at what point it really has got a half upon and the answer is the day before they cover the entire contract if they're doubling every day and that means that half the town was covered yesterday and today boom suddenly the entire pond is covered that is how exponential growth works okay that is what people are feeling in terms of coronavirus is that we have exponential growth of coronavirus what you end up with is no one around me has it oops everyone I think that's it right that that that is what people are fearing is that sudden is that sudden object and this is what is being feared by the trump former homeland security adviser Tom Bossert he says hospitals are basically ten days away from being creamed he suggested in an op ed that we are we are in trouble in terms of our our hospital facilities as officials must pull the trigger on aggressive interventions said aggressive internet interventions put off and ease the burden on hospitals and other healthcare infrastructure and that of course is true as one of my wrists wells then the hospitals that need to be prepared as I already said mayor bill de Blasio said that things are happening intensely in New York City and the governor Jay Inslee has no restricted gathers more than two hundred and fifty people in king county as well as several as well as you know how much and Pierce counties which are the the biggest counties in Washington state that means no soccer games means no it means no baseball games it means that basically all major gatherings ought to be canceled according to Jay Inslee the governor of Washington state Dr foundry has suggested there be no crowds at NBA games so basically if you have tickets for opening day in the United States for baseball you can fairly bank that that is not going to happen why colleges are canceling events I would not be surprised if my college events this semester for example are canceled that would not be a great shock again I think that all of this makes a certain amount of sense like better caution and they have this viral outbreak you want to reduce the size of the the spread and the and the quickness of the spread is to give us time right now we're bargaining for time but we don't know what the death rates are on this thing we just don't and what that means is that every attempt to slow the spread of the virus buys a day for people to develop vaccines they're going to be more effective in slowing or stopping the spread of the virus of becomes just another seasonal problem instead of becoming an overwhelming threat to western populations so this is it it is in this light it is important to recognize that when the federal government fails along this along these lines you can be absolutely disastrous there's a a piece from The New York Times that is just devastating talking about how the federal government did in fact blow the month the president trump was a president trump said very early on we're shutting down travel from China and a lot of people unless I'm not this is racist on this is terrible ten people were saying you have virus when buyers is racist you can see when my wrist is a drum said no we're sitting down travel that was a very good thing it was a very smart thing was the right thing to do the problem is that only buys you time because it turns out that some people are going to get in and any other problem so what did the federal government do with a month and president trump bought them by shutting down travel from from when the answers basically nothing according to Dr Helen chew infectious disease expert in Seattle she knew the United States and not have much time in late January the first confirmed American case of coronavirus have landed in her area critical questions need answers have been infected anyone else according to The New York Times was the deadly virus already working in other communities and spreading as luck would have a doctor to have a way to monitor the region for months as part of a regional research project into the flu she and a team of researchers have been collecting nasal swabs residents experiencing symptoms throughout the Puget Sound region three purpose the test for monitoring coronavirus they would need the support of state and federal officials but nearly everywhere Dr Jew turned officials repeatedly rejected the idea interviews and emails show even as weeks called by an average margin countries outside of China where the infection begin by February twenty fifth Dr Chu and her colleagues could not bear to wait any longer they began performing coronavirus test without government approval but came back in from the worst fear they quickly had a positive test from a local teenager with no recent travel history the corona virus had already established itself on American soil without anybody realizing it Dr she recalled thinking it must've been here this entire time is just everywhere already in fact officials later discovered through testing the virus had already contributed to the deaths of two people guns killed twenty more in the Seattle region over the following days federal and state officials said the flu study could not be repurposed because it didn't have explicit permission from research subjects labs are also not certified for clinical work well now Jeannie affable questions doctor should others argue there should be more flexibility in an emergency very much so many lives could be lost this is correct I mean like if you give permission for somebody to do a nasal swab for flow and that is repurposed enables one for coronavirus I honestly fail to see how any reasonable person would consider that a violation of privacy I nobody must know that I had grown up at night they're not gonna release your specific rotavirus task it just allows the state to do something on Monday night state regulators told them to stop testing altogether the failure to tap into the flu study detailed here for the first time was just one in a series of missed chances by the federal government to ensure more widespread testing during the early days of the outbreak when containment would've been easier instead local officials across the country were left to work in the dark as the crisis go undetected exponentially now so I think this is from so now I don't I don't think trump is monitoring local level task I think this is the fault of the massive regulatory bureaucracy that prevents people from doing reasonable things it turns out that the federal government well it is well placed to issue brought national guidelines is not well placed to deal with local testing that has to be done it turns out the local communities maybe the the fastest to react to the sort of thing right voluntary shut downs right now happening across the country with regard to major public events and those are happening on the local and state level without the federal government even doing anything it turns out the people who see federalism is the obstacle to this sort of thing they're doing it wrong local and state officials are more answerable to local populations and are in fact more likely to request the people do responsible things in fact is that porn was yesterday in the in the Jewish community basically every pore institute that I've heard of in my area meaning every big poor meal with big gatherings lots of kids those were basically shut down voluntarily without any guidance from the federal state or local officials is so the notion that the federal government needs to be running this thing in extraordinarily top down fashion the federal government should be coordinating all the officials letting them know sort of the minimum of what they expect but standing in the way of local officials doing what they need to do to Tampa's thing down is a completely different thing and that is a testament to the stupidity of bureaucracy generally

"Let's first turn our attention to the coronavirus and efforts to contain it cobit nineteen the novel coronavirus disease has now spread to more than fifty countries and for the first time there are now more new cases outside of China where it originated then inside the country on Wednesday president trump held a news conference about the government's response to the illness flanked by health officials he appointed vice president Mike pence to direct efforts to contain its spread while seeming to downplay the risk to Americans not San Francisco meanwhile is on high alert although there have been no cases in the city mayor London breed declared a state of emergency to mobilize resources and prepare for possible outbreaks and there now appears to be a second person in the United States who contracted the virus through unknown origins both of those patients are from the bay area Solano and Santa Clara counties joining me now is Dr Charles Chu an infectious disease expert and professor at UC San Francisco doctor to thank you for being with us and it's a very busy time for you Dr sure there's a lot of fear in the community right now how much concern should people have what level is appropriate I think we should be worried we we definitely should be concerned because we are starting to see some cases of of the virus circulating in the community and by that I mean cases of infection where we don't know where it came from we don't know how this one individual ones from Solano county became infected and we also do not know how the second case in in Santa Clara county became infected as well so I think we should be worried we should be but at the same time we should also be quite vigilant and really be able to keep in touch with the with the guidance from our public health agencies and manage medical authorities which is to make sure you wash your hands to make sure you don't touch your face after that what else would you recommend for the recognition would not be too old to wear masks for instance not at this time yet we still do not see definitive evidence that we have community transmission we have lots and lots of cases that are being that that that are circulating in the community but the other thing would be to get your influenza vaccination because it's still the fact that influence is far more common than than getting an infection from this virus and so if you get your influenza vaccine vaccination that's just to protect you from that it's not going to help you with this new virus that yes yeah the influx of the influenza vaccine doesn't protect you against this virus but it does protect you against influenza and influenza this year has already been responsible for thousands of deaths so it it's it's just to put things into proportion your risk of actually getting influenza is still far greater than your risk of getting infected with this fires on their website the centers for disease control says quote the potential public health threat posed by code nineteen the formal name for this virus is very high both globally and to the United States where do you think we are in the trajectory of this virus how do you expect it to evolve well well right now we're actually seeing more cases of the infection from the virus outside of China it used to be that the vast majority of cases were in China but I I think as of yesterday there was a turning point in that we're now seeing evidence of transmission say of the virus in other countries say in South Korea and Japan in Italy and Iran so far it appears that at least the United States we still have very few cases under fifty I believe and out of which nearly all of the cases we're able to track meaning that they're either returning travelers from China that were able to follow do contact tracing on as well as potential individuals who come back because are quarantined these two cases though are the first cases of community acquired transmission where we did not we did not know where they got infected from and do you expect to see more of those will this become a seasonal virus I expect I I believe that that's certainly a possibility one thing that might happen and that may be due due to the characteristics of this virus that roughly about the the majority of people roughly about eighty to eighty five percent of people infected they have mild symptoms that have no symptoms at all it's only the small fraction of say ten to fifteen percent of of of individuals affected who develop more severe disease which is pneumonia so I I do feel that there may be there is certainly the possibility and the CDC has warned of this there's certainly the possibility that we may see ongoing community transmission and more more cases of this virus in the community let's turn now to talking about testing and then therapies so first on the testing yesterday governor Gavin Newsom held a press conference is that the state had only received a few hundred test kits from the CDC and that we needed more can you tell us about the testing protocol and how many more kids do we need well we we we probably will end up needing hundreds to thousands of cats and the reason is that we we need to we desperately need kits that can be done locally one big problem which has been increasing in eight states at all testing had to be sent to a centralized laboratory the CDC and as a result you would have to wait to ask our doctors would have to wait days in some cases longer than you know twenty four forty eight hours two to three days before you get a result back so what's really needed are diagnostic tests that could be done but locally by either the county public health laboratory or by the hospital and I think that the CDC is making efforts on moving that to expect testing to be local and this is part of your work you were on with us short time ago to talk about creating a rapid diagnostic tool yes how is that going so that's going well we we've developed as a point of care diagnostic where input so we can actually diagnosis infection get a nasal swab get some mucus from patient and be able to diagnose an infection within thirty minutes so structurally this this test works the the main challenges right now or is finding a commercial partner where we could that potentially put this test get FDA approval for this test and be able to deploy it so that could be used to to help doctors make diagnoses and if that happens how long would it be until we could see it in action well it's it's my hope that we really need to because of the public health urgency of this thread that we really need to have better diagnostic test so it's not just my efforts but really kind of the efforts as a scientific community as a clinical community we need to have tests that could be deployed within a matter of weeks to months and I think that's the time frame that we're talking about here Dr Charles Chu thank you so much for being with

Tribal Leaders push for forward funding. What happened to all the ferries? Elizabeth Peratrovich: Alaska Native and civil rights icon to be featured on $1 coin.

"This is National Native News Antonio Gonzales around this time last year the federal government had just come out of a long shutdown which impacted tribes across the country tribal leaders are pushing lawmakers for forward funding von Golden reports the idea would ensure agencies with trust obligations like the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Indian health. Service would be appropriated a year in advance of other spending bills. Aaron Payment Chairperson of the sous. Sainte Marie tribe in Michigan says such a fixed would prevent the same problems. He's seen in previous shutdowns. We lost a doctor and nurse Practitioner and for other medical staff we are probably the most impacted because we are reliant on the federal trust dollars. Tom Udall introduced advanced appropriation legislation in two thousand nineteen but it never got traction in Washington von Golden National Native News. The breakdown of the Alaska. Marine highway system has left many towns struggling to bring in food and other goods for some businesses. The challenge of getting out without fairies is just as urgent as Ari Snyder reports. Even under normal circumstances shipping logs. Out of Tennessee springs is not exactly a walk in the we crane a lumber off her barge and stack at near the interest of the ferry. Gordon chew owner of Teneke Springs. Logging company usually relies on the ferry to get his product to market. But these are not normal. Circumstances Teneke hasn't seen a ferry months and with the town's docks slated to be rebuilt. Starting in July it may not see another sailing into late December for Gaspard. We trying to figure out other ways do free and it's taken US eight years without any obvious fallback options and uncertain of when they might see another. Ferry Chu is getting creative. We're looking possibly buying motorized landing craft. The boat itself is down in Washington state. So just getting it here. We'll set them back. A lot in fuel costs panicky. Logging Company isn't the only family business in southeast looking for alternative ways of moving freight. We're doing well over one hundred thousand pounds of product out of college in four months. Seth Stewart owns Jacoby Fisheries in Pelican. Those four months. He's talking about during the summer. The product frozen fish. A lot of it like Teneke logging company you. Koby has worked out. A ferry based supply chain residents were shocked to find out their towns entirely left off the ferry system summer schedule when the draft was released in late January. It's going to cost us more money this summer than what I think is profitable in the long run but if we can just make it through the see them then it gives us time to plan out something that is viable for long term. The state plans to release a final ferry schedule later this month. I Mari Snyder the US meant has released a one dollar coin. Commemorating the work of Alaska native leader. Elizabeth Patrick Rich Alaskan celebrated a holiday in her honor on Sunday as addle in Baxter reports. The coin is currently only available online. Perovic a clinking woman from Southeast Alaska worked on the passage of the Nineteen forty-five anti-discrimination law by Alaska's territorial government.

More widely available passed both houses of the Alaska legislature recently communities all over Alaska. They want it to be able to reach in their pocket. They're backpacker they're in a whole decline. It symbolized their right if they're equal citizenship.

Who are the coronavirus victims? What to know about the fatalities as the pneumonia-like illness spreads

"Org this new strain of coronavirus has killed dozens in China and spread to as far as the US from Wuhan where the onus is believed to have originated in originated with animals so listen the clerk you were at SFO earlier this week and talking with passengers as you mentioned and what is what is the effectiveness of airport screenings for an illness that may not show symptoms initially as people are coming in and you know it's kind of after the fact at this point the two cases that we did have in the U. S. are of people who were not at who came through the airports before the screening process took place but but they have been caught if they had come in you know it's it's an open question yeah I think you know the CDC is obviously putting a lot of resources on the ground to do this and would argue that this is an important precautionary measure to try to stop cation cases but as you know the CDC representative that I talked to did say you know not no measure is going to be full proof for sure they may or may not there are definitely some critique critical voices against or not against but but critical of that airport screening is actually going to do much of for example the World Health Organization does not recommend that countries around the world do airport screening because it's not it hasn't been shown to really justify the amount of resources that are necessary to do it and for example these both of these cases maybe at the airport screening was taking place they would have been caught but they might not have been if they you know they might not have been showing symptoms yet so at the airport I think it's important to know they're taking your temperature and they're asking you to fill out a health questionnaire are you coughing do you have fever you know are you having trouble breathing so if you don't if you're feeling fine still but you might be infected but you're just not showing symptoms you could you know potentially get through that screening and in fact people here in another place so I would say you know it depends on who you ask but there's definitely some criticism that it's we're putting too much effort into it we're joined now by Charles Chu is a professor of medicine at UCLA at UCSF he specializes in infectious diseases thanks for joining us on form thank you so let's just get down to basics here what is a coronavirus my understanding is it's the same virus as the common cold it is so curry viruses are a family it's of a family of viruses and they they do belong to a group of viruses that cause the common cold other viruses in this group include rhinoviruses an adenovirus and current viruses are simply a fat family of respiratory viruses that cause respiratory infections what what makes this a little different is our that certain kind of viruses have recently trance have recently crossover jumped over from animals to humans what we call zoonotic transmissions and so some examples would be in two thousand two we had sars coronavirus which was a a species job as well as members kind of virus and and I believe around around twenty eight to twenty eleven of which came from camels and so this is another corona virus it it appears to cause respiratory disease along with other Quinn viruses and but we don't we just don't know where it came from end how dangerous is this virus I mean the number of cases and deaths grow daily is this because it's spreading so rapidly or because existing cases are finally being diagnosed in the numbers updated trust you yeah we we we actually do not know at at this point exactly how dangerous or deadly the virus may be I think it's a bit and part of the reason is that it's still very very early in the course of the outbreak and there has been there have been hundreds of cases yes and and several fatalities based on the early data it does suggest that this does not appear to be as deadly as for instance sars coronavirus or even murders kind of ours and I I believe there as of as of today they're probably took twenty one fatalities and more than six hundred cases I saw that side of Italians meaning patients who are developed the disease and die from it so it does not appear to be as dangerous as prior coronaviruses but it's still very early days actually the numbers that I was seeing were more than eight hundred and twenty six outs at this yes again it just continues to grow so then we were talking with less in the clerk about how they're doing screenings at the airport but what symptom should people be on the lookout for especially if they've traveled to China or other regions in Asia that ours reporting cases yes it's a current affairs infections because a respiratory illness and it's it's just as in any viral flu like illness patients or Invid individuals were infected can demonstrate fever cough nasal congestion in this in a subset of patients in a purple small proportion of patients they may then develop more severe disease chest pain chest tightness and shortness of breath I can develop into a life threatening pneumonia a but it presents initially as any other common cold or viral like flu like illness at less cynical you wanted to jump in I just jump in in the sense that and nationally it looked like it was mostly older people with pre existing conditions who were dying from this this virus and just recently they announced that the a man thirty six years old in Shanghai has has died so it does look like it might be affecting and he was perfectly healthy he died of cardiac arrest a couple hours before the diagnosis so is that increasing the concerned doctor chew in terms of you know how this virus infects people and can affect people who did not have pre existing conditions who were apparently young and healthy I I think it is concerning but and and that was actually the case with for for instance some some other viruses that we scenes for instance the two thousand nine H. one and one pandemic influenza virus where it appeared to disproportionately because perhaps severe disease in in younger people so it's I I I do want to stress so that really is early days and we can't really really can make conclusions about how deadly the viruses I think probably much more concerning to me is the fact that this virus clearly is able to be transmitted from person to person for human to human transmission does that mean it can mutate essentially two or the L. yet this last week regardless of whether or not the the that that the the virus can mutate the greater concern is that the capacity for human to human transmission what that means is if it translates very efficiently it's very it would be very difficult to stop this outbreak it's very difficult to curb the spread of the outbreak or so I I I'm I'm what I'm worried about is that this may be an outbreak that would be very difficult or even impossible to stop and it certainly has that potential if it has really at if it really transmits officially from person to person so even if you have of say a virus that's not that deadly or perhaps only causes severe disease a small fraction of patients if you have millions of people infected it's still results in a large number of deaths from the virus so then do you agree with the world health organization's assessment at this point that this is not a global emergency they have not been willing to declare it so at this point I believe that the World Health Organization is being cautious at this point we we we see the evidence of transmissibility from person to person I believe what the world health organization's looking for those at this of sustained transmission what we describe as ongoing transmission passes initial introduction to a country if there's evidence of sustained transmission I do to believe that will help her position will be will likely to declare this an emergency well Emily I'm not yet yes is there any reason to avoid traveling to Chicago we have plans to travel there next week that's where the latest case has been confirmed in the U. S. should this person avoid that doctor to I I don't think there's any particular reason to avoid travel to to Chicago it's it's it's probably it's it's simply by chance at that we're doing and screening at major airports and and really across the United States that's the CDC is conducting surveillance for the virus I suspect that we will likely have additional cases and they will but they'll tend to pop up where where surveillance is being done and and I know that we we previously had the discussion about whether or not you know airport base surveillance is going to be effective I I do agree with my what what with I do agree with the other speaker in that I believe that it's it may be perhaps too little too late and perhaps not effective but it definitely is an attempt to prevent to prevent a transmission into this country what do you think is the likelihood that this illness will come to California to the bay area if it hasn't already we do have I mean server disco bitter national airport was one of the first airports to have screenings put in place because of direct flights from Wuhan in so there's a lot of questions especially among our listeners about the likelihood that it will be here in the bay area and what can be done for prevention I I think it's it's likely that we may eventually see cases have simply because based on the data from China based on information that's coming from China this does appear to be a relatively contagious virus it is and there have been several examples for instance of what we call hospital choir transmission where infected patients in China transmitted to multiple health care workers we've also seen some exam examples of sustained cycles of transmission in China meaning that someone's infected but then in fact somebody else and in turn affects somebody else so I I I believe that it's only a matter of time before we'll start to see additional cases well is eager asks I was surprised at the coverage on the Seattle individual didn't include information on the airports he visited or even confirmation Hughes the Seattle airport there also wasn't an acknowledgement of this information is being withheld is this normal is this advisable it's interesting lesson the clerk because I understand that one of the things that they were looking at was whether the Washington case that the man had even travel through SFO as on a connecting flight potentially so do we have any more insight into where you know I'm not exactly sure I don't have more insight on exactly where he flew in I think to address both that listeners concerns and the woman who who is traveling to Chicago those people who have come across in who are infected the CDC is monitoring anyone that they have come in close contact with since they have arrived in so they are trying to make sure anyone that that person you know had dinner with their talk to or whatever in the man in Chicago and Seattle apparently had not been contacted very many people and in both of them had live alone except dresser there was a fair amount of kit you know which I say so the service so their surveillance around those people who who have come across to make sure that they're not spreading it some took to relay their concerns must be king also a Charles true about information being withheld there were concerns that the Chinese government is not being as transparent as they should be maybe not sharing information as readily as they could be because of concerns about the previous you know sars epidemic when the Beijing government with held a lot of information initially about it do you think that this time around the government is sharing enough information about the case I do think that things are different with regards to disclosure of verses the what happened in two thousand two with the sars outbreak for instance are in two thousand two there was a lot of information that was that was simply not available for several weeks it but here

"Just a soul to become more engaged overall what I believe in Cecilia is I think faith is way too important to leave to the religious valley and the Internet gave me superpowers tools to go to battle with a suit to take bullets with and the Hi it's signal in the sky told me when it was time to fight now I can't actually prove any of this I am not a tis facts in fact my rod tomato scores running around fifty percent right now so I'm not sure why they let me in if we're talking about colliding with power that's bigger than us that I'm in the right place because this last year I had an interesting year with a movie called Crazy Rich Asians that I did thank you thank you for talking about connections specifically today that I know my story is only possible because of a collection of connections that happened throughout my life and so hopefully by telling a little bit of my story it'll help someone else find their path a little sooner than I did so my story begins when I opened the Holy Book for the First Time The holy book of gadgets of course sharper image Freddie yes those who know it was a magical magazine of dreams and had things in there that you knew cannot possibly exist but there was right there you could order at come in the mail and some things that probably should have never existed like Gregory a lifelike portable mannequin who deters crime by his strong -culing appearance this is a real a real thing by the way but my eyes were set on the video edits seema to this thing being was so cool at the age of ten you could connect all your vhs players together and something together so I call my parents and convince them to buy this Fermi but before I get into that let me give you a little rundown about my parents they came to the United States when they're young they're from Taiwan and China and they settled in Los Altos L. A. -fornia the silicon valley before the Silicon Valley and they start a restaurant called chef shoes fifty years later today they still work at the restaurant they are still there and I grew up there so it was great it was talking about connection this place was a hub of connection people coming there to celebrate birthdays anniversaries business deals eating drinking connection and I got to grow up in that environment my parents always that America is the greatest place in the world you can you love anything can work hard and you can accomplish anything you want so they raised five all American kids I'm the youngest and they named actually mice the Jenner for and Jonathan after Jennifer Jonathan Hart from that TV show heart to heart so that's how much they loved America apparently it's can the thought that we were the Kennedys my mom specifically so she dresses up all the time like each other and she put us etiquette classes and ballroom dance classes and I was in charge of the video camera every time we went on vacation so I would collect all these videos and nothing to do with it thus the video edit too and convincing together for me and all night spent trying to wrangle all the VCR's brothers and sisters room tangled wires and now I had something to show them so I brought them into the the living room one night is probably nineteen ninety-one around there and I sit them down in the living room and my heart was pounding my breasts were deep sort of like right now and I press play something extraordinary happened actually they cried and cried they cried not because it was the most amazing home video edit ever although it's pretty good but because they saw our family as a normal family that fit in and belonged on the screen in front of them just like the movies that they worshipped and the TV shows that they named us after and I remember as youngest of these five kids feeling heard for the first time this is place where all these things in my head could go into the great electric somewhere out there and exists in escape and I knew from this moment on I wanted to do this for the rest of my life whether I was going to get paid for it or not so I had this passion and now I needed some tools and my dad went to work he continued to brag about my home video editing skills to the customers that shoes and luckily this is the Silicon Valley so there are working on stuff a hardware and software engineers and they offer to give me things for digital video editing this is this is the mid nineties early nineties where they didn't stuff didn't exist for kids like me so I'd get these Beta we're in hardware from places like HP and Sun and Russell Brown at adobe literally no manual so I'd figure it out and I fell in love with it even more so I went to USC School of Cinematic Arts and started to go there and and my mom and dad would always call me randomly and remind me that I've gotta do movies about my Chinese heritage that China was going to be a huge market for movies one day I was like yeah right you're always listen to your parents and I wanted to ask Lucas and Spielberg the last thing I wanted to talk about was my own cultural identity necessity honestly I had no one to talk there was no one at school that I could really open up to an even if I did I did I say so I ignored it and I moved on with life cut to fifteen years later I made it in Hollywood I I got discovered by Spielberg I worked with the Rock Bruce Willis Justin Bieber even came to the ahead stage to present my dance company LSD and it was great and then a couple of years ago I felt a little bit lost creatively the when we started going down a little bit and I got a sign I heard voices from the sky and more like birds okay find it was twitter and twitter it was constance we want twitter it was Daniel Day Kim Jang who's here today it's Alan Yang the people who were writing their frustrations with representation in Hollywood and it really hit me I thought these things but never really registered I was focused on on on I felt lucky to be working and so then I realized yeah what is wrong with Hollywood why aren't they doing this and then I looked at myself in the mirror and realized I am Hollywood I literally I'm so I popped my collar before I came out here that's how Hollywood still out still out okay good and for all these years I felt just I've been given so much what was giving back to the film business that I loved and I felt lucky to be here but at this moment I realized that I was not just lucky to be here I had the right to be here no I earned the right to be here although sleepless nights all those parties I missed on it is every friend and girlfriend I lost because I was editing I earned the right to be not just to have a voice but to say something and say something important and I had actually the power for the power the super power to change things if I really really wanted to all those when you try to tell stories about yourself and people who like you and look like your family it can be scary and all those feelings of being alone came back but the Internet is what told me sent the sign that there was going to be a whole army waiting for me to support me into love me for it and so I found Kevin Kwan's amazing novel crazy rich Asians and we went to work and we we put this movie together a- all Asian cast the first Asian cast in twenty five years with a contemporary story when we started it was not it was on a guarantee at at all there was no comp for this kind of movie all the every time we did surveys and stuff the audience is working to show up and in fact even in our test screenings will you give free tickets to people to watch your movie we had a one to two thousand five ratio meeting after twenty five asked only one person said yes which is super low these types of things Asian people knew the book didn't trust Hollywood at all Asian people who didn't know the books that the title was offensive and other people who were Asian just didn't think it was for them so we were pretty screwed Luckily Warner Brothers didn't turn away from us but then the electric somewhere struck again and army of Asian American writers reporters bloggers who asserted.

How a Toronto ob-gyn gamed the system and put his patients lives at risk

"The maternity ward of a Toronto on a hospital one Saturday in two thousand sixteen babies are being born at an alarming rate faster than they should have been and the short-staffed prove nurses skidding worried something was up but nobody raised any concerns. These were after all patients of highly respected O._B._G._Y._N.. Doctor Paul shoo-in who's on call at North York General Hospital. Most weekends wasn't until two nurses found evidence of wrongdoing and report it. The doctor Schuman's misdeeds were revealed and he lost his medical license. This is a story of greed ethical. Neglect disrespect of women and of a medical establishment tried to block this very story from being told and I'm filled in for Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story Michael List wrote about oh Dr Xuan in an article published in the August issue of Toronto. Life is incredible reporting has shocked city. Thank you so much for joining US Michael. Oh It's supposed to be here so I read this the story with a pit in my stomach. I'm a woman in Toronto who has had a baby in a hospital in Toronto fairly recently and I know I'm not the only one who read your story and was just horrified fight but but let's start at the beginning who is Dr Paul Schwen and what how does he regarded as a doctor in the city so hall shoe and was you you know by all accounts for thirty years <hes> one of the city's most respected O._B._G._Y._N.'s. He was also a gynecologic oncologist. What sort of unusual about about that is that most gynecological oncologists once they once they sort of go down that road they I was told about ninety percent of them? Give up their obstetric practice but not delivering babies is awesome because they're dealing with cancer patient exactly but she decided to keep his obstetric practice. Since the late nineteen eighty s he worked at the North York General Hospital he also taught at the university city of Toronto. I spoke to a number of his colleagues. All of whom said that you know he was widely admired in the community until just a few years ago when when nurses at his hospital started to notice something odd about the way he was delivering babies there were often large numbers of women coming in and in Labor on the weekend more so than on a weekday or at least not necessarily more so but just didn't in sort of in unusually high numbers they all his his patience or yeah so he would he would take call on Saturdays and so this is sort of fishy that the same day he's taking call a lot of his his patients are coming in to deliver and they were in a kind of labor. That's called precipitous labor. What does that mean so it means the contractions are coming to quickly lasting too long? Sometimes we'll get a condition called hyperstimulation of the uterus. This is what those what that is is a sort of very common sign of having been induced but the nurses would look look at these patients charts and they would see that there was no indication for for induction that they hadn't been induced they would ask the patients themselves and and they would say no no. I wasn't induced what it turned out is that he Dr Shulin was also seeing many of these patients at his clinic the morning that they were later coming in in Labor this this is very odd and then what happened not once not twice but three times nurses who were tending to these patients found the dissolved remnants of of a of a powdery pill in their vaginas and again there is no indication should be a record of any medication given to you <hes> and as as a patient you should know about it right and neither of those things happened which means that that whatever this pill was it was given to these women without their consent without notifying them and it probably had something to do with why they were coming in in these large numbers and in precipitous Labor so what happened was that the third time that this pill was found docile tested it and it triggered an investigation to what was going on why why were Schuman's patients sort of arriving at the hospital hospital like this wh what was going on and what they found was that this pill was a drug called Misoprostol and missed Oprah Saul was originally developed as an ulcer medication medication and like lots of medications it was found to have these other effects that that they hadn't designed it for and and those effects include when given when it's given to a pregnant woman it softens the Cervix Cervix and can cause contractions <hes> the product induction method right sure. I mean yeah except the only thing is that using it for that purpose is against North York General Hospital. Oh policy it is used sometimes as <hes> usually as like sort of half the recipe of pharmacological abortion right an abortion pill. That's right but if you I use it on a woman who intends to deliver her baby in his term there are terrible side effects it can cause the death of the baby and it can cause the death of the mother and so you know there's a black box label warning on it that it isn't to be used for that purpose and he actually admitted that he was doing it for a long time and not only was he doing it. He had trained and another doctor to do it and he said something like why don't you why don't you go after him. So I do WanNa rewind a little bit though and just get give us a sense of sort of how and why why this happened if he had said he'd been doing a long time is there are there early signs of when these misdeeds began to occur that maybe were found later so shoe and would later. I admit that he had been doing this for years. Is the way that you know the the the problem with a sort of <hes> with misdeeds like Schuman's is that there's very very little evidence right because it's not in the it's not in the chart. It's nothing told to the patient. The only way that You can find the pill in the patient and collected so we we don't actually know how long shoe and has been doing it for except by his own admission that it had been for years. Another question is sort of like you know your question is why like why why would why would he be doing this. There are sort of two explanations the the explanation that shoe and gave is that he was doing these these women a favor <hes> that he was trying to get around the hospital is the way that he later put it to his sort of interlocutors around the red tape of the hospital when she called called it and certainly a lot of patients and the Canadian health care system. You know sometimes you're frustrated. That things aren't happening as quickly as you would like them to happen you wait around and that's what he sort of said you know like sometimes we book someone you know. Either you know either it could be you know could be cancelled. It would have to be rescheduled. It's a big pain in the butt. You know there's like this whole sort of <hes> sluggish bureaucracy up to deal with this is a way to sort of get around it but what his <hes> lead investigator in the culture physicians and surgeons later said is that he can't rule out pecuniary Mary reasons for having done it. What do you mean by that so he's suggesting that he could that could have been doing it for the money and you're like even when I was reporting the straps Sorta like wait ah like in a socialized medical world? How can you do something like this for money well so shoe and took call on Saturdays hit looks like he was doing this on the weekend and what we what we later found out through documents at the show for one of the years that we <hes> that we have information on this <hes> two thousand fifteen to two thousand sixteen shoe and delivered almost most seven hundred babies a year at North General Hospital which is more than any other doctor there but what's really odd is that forty seven percent of the babies were born on the weekend? She wants boss at North York. General Neural <hes> had sort of told you that Hsun was only allowed to do fifty deliveries a month and that's partly sort of it's it's it's part of safety issue. When it's it's also impart part sort of budgetary issues but shoot isn't paid from from that budget right like doctors in doctors around the country they are sort of like high-powered freelancers right bill for service right so they get a fee for service? So if you do x you can bill you can build the you know the the provincial health insurance for having done it. It's not just a matter of volume though that's true right. If you deliver more babies you can you can charge more for having done it but in the there's a there's a strange range of incentive <hes> built into when it makes sense for an O._B._G._Y._N.. Deliver a baby. If you deliver a baby in Ontario on a weekday weekday you can charge four hundred dollars but if you deliver that same baby on a weekend you can charge over seven hundred dollars. It's about two hundred and fifty bucks more so that's the reason why you know or at least according to his his medical investigator <hes> he couldn't rule out that shoe and was doing this on Saturdays <hes> when he took call so that he could deliver those babies for a higher rate then he could if he was delivering them on on a weekday so money aside I've another major problem with with his conduct seems would be informed patient consent and another example which also shocked me had to do with evolve ectomy. Is that what it's called what what happened there so this is not even necessarily delivering babies that he was sort of blowing past patient consent on it was other matters to what was going on there so this this was this was a <hes> an issue with his <hes> oncology practice. What happened was that when we were investigating the story we we asked the culture physicians and surgeons for the evidence that was entered hurt against you in in the in the what resulted in the loss of his license and two of those documents that were released to us worth the previous complaints that were lodged against chewing and have an and were found to be credible? What's odd is that those were not available to to the public right? It used to be that that when <unk> something from the Complaints Committee at the was found to be credit credible and resulted in ruling against a doctor that that would not be released to you so if you want to know so if your doctor had any problems with something like consent you couldn't know right so so what happened with this woman was had was that <hes> she had this rare malignancy called paget's disease and it sort of manifests as as little sort of a sort of lesions on on the Volva and so she went to Dr Soon Dr Shulan said listen we need to partial vol back to me and she was really nervous as you as you can imagine right excuse me and so so this this is what you need to do. We need to do the surgery so she said I mean okay. If you think that's what's Best I'll I'll book it. How many of us have been like okay? Let Dr Nells Bass Drink. You're going to say right like argue with your doctor right so medical professional acted right sure so she said Okay and then she said listen. If you want more information you can go home and Google paget's disease and so she did and she looked it up and she found that in some cases aces it could be treated with a cream so she came back and she said listen. I you know I I read. We can just use a cream. That's what I want Chu and said that's not going to help for your <hes> for your version of of paget's disease so you need to have the surgery and more than that even though the surgery was a month out if she canceled it she would have two hundred bucks cancellation flation view a month in advance a month and she said well I mean I you know I don't WanNa pay the cancellation fee. My doctor says I should do it so we'll do it. So when you woke up from the surgery she found that not only had it been this per show victim that they talk talked about but he also cut off her clitoris that to me was my job was on the floor. I was like you know is that her her fault for not asking more like about that the other thing to stop me in the story. was you know and there's no proof of this at all. There's no way of knowing for sure but like if he had had male You have been so cavalier with his decision. Making with the lack of

Canadian detained in China as Huawei row continues

"Jail today. His name is Michael covert state media in Beijing say says he was detained in connection with national security matters raising fears he could be accused of spying covert detention comes as China is in the middle of a standoff with Canada over the arrest in Vancouver of mung one Joe a top executive with Chinese telecom giant while way that arrest came after a request from the US Justice department just to had fuel to the fire. President Trump told the Washington Post last night that he hopes to use monks case as leverage in his trade spat with China joined a CHU is deep into the story. She's been covering the mum case for the Toronto Star from Vancouver. And she's a personal friend of Michael Kovac? I asked her first how she heard of. His arrest. Well, actually yesterday morning I woke up and I saw his name as subject headings in emails from editors in Toronto. And I figured that Michael. He's a researcher for a very high profile NGO. So I suppose that he gave such a good interview that someone was doing a piece just based on his comments perhaps on hallway the case going on in Vancouver. But then I soon realized that he was actually detained and it was just a really awful realization. And I couldn't reach anyone. It was passed but night in Beijing. So I finally reached Michael's former boss so previous ambassador to China geese ain't jocks who who told me he was also very distressed to learn about the news. How do you know, Michael covert? I work I work in Hong Kong then in late two thousand fourteen I moved to Beijing. And that winter he was one of the first people, I met became friends. He was part of a group of Canadian and European diplomats who are very social always going to. Concerts and having gatherings, and I became part with social group, and he reached out to me also wanted one to to trade notes because we both covered human rights. We were both doing research on Chinese politics. So he was always very eager to talk to others who were in the same field. You know, just to play devil's advocate. I mean, we can't assume the Chinese judicial system is is just making stuff up. Is there any have you ever considered that Michael covert could be a spy? I mean, it's always a possibility. But everyone I've talked to has vehemently denied that he has anything to do with espionage. And he was a Canadian diplomat. And he was a researcher who was doing research on things that really wouldn't have anything to do with what China would consider things that. I would do he was doing stuff about China's relationship with North Korea. He was talking about the the Chinese see. So he was focusing in China's foreign affairs as a researcher after working as a diplomat even covering the case of mung one. Joe the detained hallway executive is there is there any connection between these two vents so formative Basseterre told me that he was very distressed when he heard about Michael being detained. He had experienced this before and she hasn't fourteen to Christian aid workers from candidate Julianne. Kevin Garrett the arrested by Chinese officials in the queues of spying and many believe at the time. It was retaliation for. Arrest in Canada that same year of Chinese citizens to been who was accused of hacking, US military, databases. So we have some linkages here. We have the Holloway case happening playing out in Vancouver. And this is the executive of Chinese company who is being accused by the US a fraud and the US wants to extradite her back to the US and at the same time Michael is detained in possibly accused of some quite serious things.

"Five. Hello. Hi. This is Dr CHU. I was looking to speak with David. Who is this Dr CHU? I know. Sounds like a sneeze. Putt. It's not. It's my last name. I like to tell people, I'm allergic to last names. It's pretty good. I'm david. Oh, wonderful. David your girlfriend, Sarah is with me in my office right now. And actually I wanted to give you a call to talk about something you have a moment. Yeah. I didn't know. Yeah. I didn't know. I was I was part of this process. Sure. Well, yeah. She says that you encourage her to come down here to get a breast augmentation. I don't know. I don't think encouragement is the right word. I listen, listen, if you're encouraging her to do it, that's fine. Trust me, a lot of guys do she just mentioned that you really want her to get a boob job. And that it was a big thing for you. And I was like, hey, why don't I just hop on the phone with them real quick and go over some details. I mean, she can do whatever she wants, obviously. But yeah, I mean, I think it'd be it'd be cool. Okay. Yeah. Trust me. Hey, it is cool telling you from experience. Is there a size that you had in mind? I asked for a reason like two sizes Iger, right? Okay. Here's what I was thinking because we can definitely get that done. And I'm wondering if you'd be willing to help out a bit can I guess perfect. So I was talking to Sarah. And I asked if she was happy with your body. Oh, I don't know how that's relevant with the law makes sense here in a second. She said that you do have a bit of a gut, and she showed me a picture of you. And it looks like you are carrying a little extra baggage around. I mean, I think everyone is a little bit. But it's not it's not problem. She said that to you. Yes, she did. But here is the good part. Okay. Because breast augmentation can be expensive. And nowadays science has allowed us to suck the fat out of one person and put it into another. So if you want Sarah to have some bigger boobs what we do is. We can suck the fat out of your midsection put it right into her chest, then you guys both win. Yeah. I thought it was like plastic. I mean, you don't know that's old school. So this is the only way. Well, it's not the only way it's the best way in my opinion. And it's cost effective works out for both you guys she gets what she wants. You get what you want. I was I was thinking just old school. I don't. I mean, I'm fine. How I am. Okay. I saw the picks. I saw the pictures. Okay. Well, I think I know which when she showed you properly in. That's not that's not how I look. But listen, I'm sorry. If that sounded insensitive, I'm a doctor. There's no judgment here. But you are a little tubby in the mid section, and we can use that to our advantage. She gets new boobs you get less of a midsection. I also another added bonus when we put you under to suck the fat out of your stomach Sarah also requested that we give you an extension down there. And I'm going to do that free of charge for you. I'm sorry. What will extend that little thing for you. Yeah. I don't I don't mean. Excuse me. Those are her words not mine. The little thing comment. I would never say that. I'm a doctor. She she used the word little thing in told you that you should extend it. I think it was little it was either little tiny camera. You know, you get the point. I don't have any problem like that. Okay. I don't have a tiny or little anything on my body. And you know what? Even even if I did that'd be between me and my doctor. Okay. I I don't think you should be setting up surgeries for somebody else are a appreciate you. I appreciate you saying that. But she did show us a picture and myself and all the other nurses in here. All agree. A picture. She showed you all picture along with your stomach. She showed us a picture of that. And I thought it was a little bit undersized. So did a few of my staff members.

"You know, like the GI Joe sequel, he did the best moment. Air vaccine of that sequel is a snake eyes fight scene, and I feel like that's the the sequence that Jon CHU was allowed to do, you know, be John CHU and in, you know, knife see me to the whole heist breakout scene where the using Carter strain stuff. It's like, you know, the the most stylistic in John q. gets in this film. I feel like actually get gives him a chance to do that for whole movie in so enjoyable. I, I'm, I'm very happy that romantic comedies. Are you know making a comeback? I in. Just so much fun. I love. Love like the food porn shots. It makes me want to go visit China and. Yeah, I if I had any complaint about this movie, I would say that I think the first half of the movie kind of wax a intactness te or so. It kind of is like very much just like, oh, everything's going great, but second-half definitely makes up for that. But I'm sure if you're interested in seeing crazy rich agents, you probably saw it over the weekend. And the other thing I've been watching is better call Saul, which is now on AMC. It's as great as ever is. I just wanted to to say how great what's your name? The place, Kim Wexler maybe Christie, you know, her name. Scaping me, reassess, reassess Jorn. Yes, she's a phenomenal. I think she's actually the best part of that show. Yeah. Yeah. She's just so great met show that show is just like the best thing that is on television right now. If you asked me and if you aren't watching it, if you gave up in the first season, you know, go back, watch better, call Saul catch up because you were truly made missing great television, Jacob. What have you been watching. I went to theater in top with black klansman over the weekend. And I came to an interesting place because as magic interests, last film I had edited if you spoil their field articles about this movie before I got to see it. And so I went into this movie with two articles in mind, one by Candice, Federick and one by trae man gum to our freelancers, both who had very different opinions about both. We're poaching the film as black Americans and both had very divergent opinions on who was four and how presented itself. And so I went in really prepared to be torn bomb in in both directions by end up loving it. He loves a a, a tough wardrobe movie that is kind of as unforgiving as this one is. And people talked about this before already. So I don't want to dwell on black klansman too much, but to say, I thought it was excellent. I saw ten thirty in the morning and the people around me what it's like shell shocked in crying..
