Proof of Guilt

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio. In this time we are headed back to season two for episodes. Thirty three titled proof of guilt which premiered exactly sixty two years ago today on august sixteenth. Nineteen fifty-nine in this episode. Mike is in the hawaiian islands where he is working for. A manufacturing company testing out underwater motion picture and television cameras in the opening scene. He is diving with huge film camera. The plankton is up cutting visibility but is also bringing in fish and the man eating sharks we see a number of white tip circling and they're getting closer and closer as mike sees their cold is they're getting too close for comfort so mike decides to head to the shallows when he gets to the pierre he sees a note under water on the slate that says come up. Mike tells us that there is greater threats up there than the sharks when he gets out of the water. Mike is met by lieutenant. Dave cal cal. Coa of the honolulu police department he asks why the new while dave says it wasn't from him. The camera moves to a woman who says it was from her. her name. is sandra otani or sandy. She says she put the no down. There you see. She owns now lua island where she grows. Cultured pearls offshore. Someone is stealing her pearls. And she needs. Mike's mike's help and his cameras to get the evidence that dave needs to arrest them might tell sandy that he won't give her the camera as they only go with him. Sandy smiles until mike's that she wants to go with the cameras that might smooth operator. The scene now shifts to the beach on sandy's island where both sandy and mike are gearing up to assure dive out to the pearl beds. Sandy shows mike the pearl beds in his getting angry underwater as she finds the broken oyster shells as they are walking out of the water. Mike tell sandy that it is the perfect place for scuba. Hit and run. Sandy tells mike that some of the pros have been growing for thirty years. Mike her exactly how they cultivate the pearls. Sandy says that it's a secret that came with her father from japan but since they won't but since she won't tell them the secret should make it up to them with the best dinner he ever had now. The next morning mike is ready to set a trap for the pro robbers. He's hiding in the rocks with a pair of binoculars in his full scuba rig looking for any suspicious activity. He spots a boat but he doesn't see the divers go into the water on the other side of the boat. He does however see their bubbles and heads out with his camera to catch them in the act at the pro beds. Mike hides behind a rock with the cameras. The divers approach as they start to rob the beds. Mike starts to film but he gets careless. He says the sound of the camera alerts. The divers wanted a bad guy circles around in surprises. Mike they get into a fight. The other bad guy grabs the camera and pulls out the film now while the underwater fight is going on. Sandy was watching from the beach and she suspects trouble and his racing to the pro beds with her boat. The bad guys rip mics regulator out of his mouth but as they are scared off by the sound of sandy's boat. Mike is left helpless. Miraculously mike doesn't drown he recovers we see some eagle raising the background as he heads to the surface he's blowing bubbles all the way up we now see the camera resting on the bottom. Mike struggles back on. The boat is gasping for air. A sandy asks him if he is all right in the next scene. Now we see mike lying on a chair. Sandy's giving him not some tea. He says he doesn't want anymore and starts to work on a plan to catch the bad guys lieutenant dave. Sandy says she wants to let them have the pearls. Because they're not worth mike's life. But mike says it's not about the pearls anymore. It's a personal grudge. He needs dave's help to put them on tv now. Mike is going to use the underwater television camera to catch the. The's he shows. Dave how it's going to work as he pans across the island. Just mike points to camera towards dave in. Sandi dave says hey look at the prettiest girl in blue island has sandy strikes. Oppose the camera. And she says she's the only girl on lulu island as mike looks to take off underwater. Sandy gives him a big kiss for luck. And mike says he's never had any better luck back underwater with the tv camera. Mike is waiting for all three villains as they are. Now jumping in the water to steal the pearls but this time one of them has a spear gun. Mike has the tv camera pointed at the pro beds. But there's a problem. The bad guys are coming from the wrong direction and they're not on tv. The ambush mike. Who's only hope is to move maneuver them into the frame of a camera. Chaos prevails as they fight and slash at one. another finally might get them to the pearl beds. The spear gun is fired and strikes the bed. Fortunately sandy is watching and as yells to dave look at this cast off now. The cops are headed to the fight during the fight. Mike's left arm is slashed but he continues fighting pulling a regulator out of one of the bad guys. Mouth just then. He sees the to hawaiian police officers free diving or swimming trucks. And says they look like angels with the odds now even justice prevails and the bad guys lose again in the final scene near back on the shore of an allure island. Mike's arms bandage. Dave asks in the. He needs a ride back to honolulu. Sandy tells dave that mike is going to be on vacation. Dave says the sandy. Nobody likes a cop. Sandy says she will give him the best testimonial but also gives mike. Another big kiss to which mike replies that is the best testimonial in my life. I'm not exactly sure where this episode was filmed for the top side scenes but it sure does look like hawaii however you never know when it comes to television or the movies. The part of sandy was played by nobu mccarthy and kendrick played lieutenant dave calcutta and here's one final interesting tidbit. This episode was remade in the nineteen eighty-seven version of sea hunt and it was titled pearl beds. And just so you know. I'm still trying to get my hands on that. One thousand nine hundred eighty seven series with ron ely. Maybe someday

Ubisoft Is Developing A Massive Open-World ‘Star Wars’ Video Game

"Open world star was game is in development. Not at electron arts sits in development at. Ub soft it's from the division developer yousof massive. No indication has been given us u whether it would be single player or multiplayer. Or what part of the star was timeline or win and might be released but Ub eve chemo says quote on. It's an original stores adventure. That is different from anything that has been done before. Sam what do you make of that. It can't be two stories. you can't be star. Wars chess masters tarazi yummy. Oh it's none of those things. If you just eliminate all the way star wars has manifested itself. You can figure out what this game is because it's not any of those cannon whatever it is going to be cannon with with just films and everything everything our young everything hanan. I think this is such cool news. the division is not necessarily my cup of tea but like big aaa studio. That's really really well. Resourced and capable of of of doing star wars justice undeniably so Yeah i'm really really excited. We also dug into some of the jobless things because obviously now the the word is out there like our star wars project and they're able to be a little bit more descriptive there. Nothing to revelatory words like open world action adventure linear and lawn on linear storytelling. An rpg style progression were thrown around. So it's a video game folks you heard for as many star wars games as we've gotten. Yeah it's been a million where you know this this little trailer montage. That's running a showing several of them. We haven't really ever gotten a big aaa open world star wars game. There has been role playing games. And you know jet. I fallen order is. I don't know what you would call that wide. Probably i would. I would think on the positive side. This is just yet i fall. And were because it's a bunch of open areas and ed fine with me but i want i want like i want like sky rim levels of open like our fallout lending open area. Yeah i want like actual open world star wars game. Where like that's this weird hole in the in all the star wars games we've gotten in the past if it was that that that could work well but what worries me is seeing the division footage and thinking about the avengers and like you know we did our lessons being learned about what You know open world games are when they are also games a service or are thus not being learned about that and people really like the division say anthems that the thing that scares me as much as a jazz. Yeah that's a that's a very real you know. I'd like star wars as much as the next nerd. But the franchise assertive written into a corner because there are no jet. I in modern star wars so unless they go back in time to old republic all any player ever want to do is run around as a djeddai but the fiction of every single star. Wars game has to itself for why you know. I'm not a jet. I but i'm using a lightsaber or Or calcutta's in jeddah. Fallen order is a jet. I'd here's why you know. No one knows about him like i. It's this big stumbling block. That like every star wars game has to overcome so but even if you are jet. I like you can't be getting a new lightsaber and equipping new loot and being on this loop dried. Really like he got different different robes. Sure where they can make that work. that's horrible. I think that's why a builder public works of the time when there were there were a lot of it is. I'm definitely a fan of a lot of ubisoft. Open world games. A lot of the Is far cries but Yeah just to echo what you're saying. The divisions are really my cup of tea. Either a shared world sort of lewd or shooters not really what. I what i'm into. So i don't know i don't know what to make of this Tina i know you like a lot of assassins creeds. Obviously like open games shema. What what's your take on this. I didn't play of division one. I did actually like the vision to i think there are. Rpg elements that make sense and like you know really big dense world to go around and do different activities in could could be a really good fit to so. I have confidence that us off. Nasa is a great choice in general Breaking out of. Ea exclusively is a good thing for them if felt like felt like ea developing those games Was a bit of practice for what is now known as lucasfilm games. And now they get to branch out and pick like a clipper per the type of game that they're going for so that they don't feel necessarily like hamstring into Squeezed into one publisher particularly. So it's like they got a little bit confidence with the successive jet iphone. Order and star wars squadrons and a couple advancements the battlefront two. So they've figured out a formula that could work and now they get to poach essential essentially developers from different talents to figure out what else they're gonna do in this increasingly dense cannon star wars world.

Interview With Imogen Callister

"Today i'm joined by. In calcutta aka k- the media coach after korea to spend journalism real estate operations and a position is branding and marketing specialist at rei imaging now ex with businesses and individuals to help build their brand online. Emmy can you. You can call me. Whatever you like. But miceli i get codeine. Welcome to the show. Thank thank you so much for having me. It's an on obviously debate here on your incredible podcast. Awesome for you to be. He and the media coach is relatively new venture for you. Yeah which you started in january. The she so tell us a bit about it. So look i guess my passion really stems by two ways. One my love of real estate but predominantly my background's journalism media and marketing and it's really blending. Those two worlds together and being an agent is a unique job sam. Every day they have to apply for a new job like imagine that world. It's not easy and you've constantly go to be out there prospecting for new clients and it's my job to help my clients build a personal brand that people want to connect with an also build world-class campaigns in social media marketing and digital online presence to really help them connect with more sellers out there in the marketplace. And it's hard to believe but a lot of people we pick up the fire in one hundred times a day. We make all these goals but you forget like our mobiles right in our hands and everybody fact checks everything now. In fact seventy percent of all sellers will look you up before making a decision on you as an agent so the media coverage was kind of founded on my true passion of helping agents and look like many people. It's been a challenge with covid. I've just had just the best journey. And i really. I'm sorry lucky. I get to wake up every day and leave my passion and my dream and help agents and with some of the top performers in the country. Now so i just feel like it's it's an absolute honor to really work in that position. I mean you've done raising job. So far and really covered as proven agents need to start acting like media companies themselves anyway. So it's great that they've got someone like you to help them along and i think covert is really sorta taught agents viva lesson in terms of you. Don't take back the narrative in the only thing that people here out there is the mainstream media which is obviously always the right. Listen and the thing is think the hardest part for agencies the first question is they say. I don't know what to post because everyone cares about what other people think. And that's human nature satellite. Go onto worried about pricing. I don't know what to post. And i don't know what to say in my purse. That builds brand attraction will makes the whole world of social media like a photo. I mean even though that's not really relevant now likes going on social media where like inist rally aware actually the only place in the world currently with no likes on facebook and instagram. Like if going to the states while that movements coming through so for an aging. It's really breaking down those barriers of understanding that innate to master paid and an own media strategy into their brand so an own media strategy is how they channels look facebook. Instagram linked in google business. What i call like. They pass active brands. They passive brandies lack. They google they look on google. What serves into that brand and making sure that spoiled class when people are typing and then they've got their active brand for their own channels. So that instagram you know. Everyone wants to be into famous. In fact he mcallister of locked you. You know that whole own media channel like may that content pressure now is that then for an agent you really need to look at. How do you create writing fans in your marketplace. Like it's been around for years these idea that other people generate leads into your business but it's gone blown up into the online world now a carry and how it's blowing up. He's all these online reviews and always online review platforms and it's breaking down that disruption for them so they know where to build reviews in brand it gets the more kind of licencees and the last thing i guess formulating strategy for agents now is a lot of people sam. They say to me all you know. I've tried social media before. And i say okay. What have you done that. I'll put up a video. I k and did you do that once. Yup yup. that didn't do anything sat. And it's kind of like you need to understand that ninety. Seven percent of revenue on facebook is made by digital advertising.

Artist and glaciologist illustrate ice loss from glacier in Peru

"As the climate warms glaciers are melting fast over a thirty year period peruse Calcutta ice cap lost about a third of its area. To put that in perspective artists Meredith, like of Chicago worked with glaciologist Andrew Malone, he provided satellite images and data. She then Used Three D. Animation and gaming software to create a virtual world with the city of Chicago looks like it's built on top of the Calcutta Glacier. This provides viewers with a sense of scale. So they can visualize just how massive the glacier is and how much of it has been lost, and so it sort of displaces the viewer from the world that they know but keeps it enough of a familiar context so that somebody who lives in Chicago can look and say, Oh, yeah I know what that distances. into show, how much isis disappeared into able to calculate the volume of ice that has been lost and then convert that into if that much ice were to fall as snow in Chicago that it would return allegation I think of six hundred feet. In their virtual world falling snow buries the city until only tops of skyscrapers are visible. Seeing an image can really illicit an emotional reaction and I think that that's where change can come from.

Obama hits the trail for Biden in Pennsylvania

"Will joe and Carmela at the helm you're not gonNa have to think about the crazy things they said every day. and. That's worth a lot. You're not going to have to argue about them every day. It just won't be so exhausting. That was President Barack Obama in Philadelphia today campaigning for Joe Biden Camara's President Obama spoke in ways we've heard before about his respect and deep friendship with Joe. Biden. Saying that his vice president Joe Biden made him a better president. But president trump spoke very pointedly. About the current president in a way that we have not heard before. This was just reported in the last forty eight hours. We know that he continues to business with China. Because he's got a secret Chinese bank. Account. How is that possible? How is that possible secret Chinese back Calcutta listen. Can you imagine if I had a secret Chinese bank account? When I was running for reelection. You. Thank you. Thank you. Thank Fox News might have been a little concerned about that. They would have called me Beijing. It is not a great idea. To have a president who owns a bunch of money to people overseas. That's not a good idea his first year in the White House. The only paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income tax. Listen my first job was at a baskin Robbins. When I was that. I think I'm. GonNa. Pay. More taxes. Working at A. Dispensing ice cream. How is that possible? How many people here paid less than that President Obama spoke at a driving rally where the audience remained in their cars the event observed all of the CDC guidelines for social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic unlike Donald Trump President Obama made it very clear that he was very happy to be back in Pennsylvania. A No The president spent some time in Erie last night. Apparently he complained about having a travel here many. Events, Short poor guy. I don't feel that way I love coming to Pennsylvania. You guys delivered for me twice and I. Am back here tonight to ask you to deliver the White House Joe. Biden Kamla Harris. He's right. The president of the United States actually did go to Erie Pennsylvania last night to win votes and then complained to his audience. In Erie Pennsylvania that he had to go to Iraq Pennsylvania, to win votes because of the plague. Donald. Trump said before the plague came in I had it made I wasn't coming to Erie. Honest. There was no way I was coming I didn't have to. President Obama. Responded to that today. Eight months into this pandemic cases are rising again across this country. Donald trump isn't suddenly going to protect all of us. He can't even take the basic steps to protect himself. Just, last night e complained up an area that the pandemic made him. Go back to work I'm quoting here. He was he was upset with the pandemics. made him go back to work. If he'd actually been working time, it never would have gotten this. So. Here's the truth. I want to be honest here this pandemic would have been challenging for any. President. But this idea that somehow this White House has done anything but completely screw this up is just not true. I'll give you a very specific example career identified at first case at the same time that the United States. At the same time. Their per capita death toll is just one point three percent of what ours is. In Canada is just thirty nine percent of what ours is. Other countries are still struggling with the pandemic, but they're not doing as bad as we are because they've got a government that's actually been paying attention when asked if he'd do anything differently. Trump said not much. Not much. Nothing, you can think of that could have helped some people keep their loved ones alive. Joe's now going to screw up testing. He's not GonNa Call Scientists Idiots. He's not going to host a super spreader event at the White House.

World hunger problem can be overcome: UN envoy

"As one of Africa's foremost thought leaders and a powerful advocate for agricultural reform Agnes Kalibata is responsible for running the first ever UN food system summit in an interview with Common Lennon from you a news Miss Calcutta, the secretary general's own void for the event outlines the ways that food systems negatively impacting the world, and how she plans to use the summit to address these problems she began by knowledge that the term food systems is not widely understood and explain why it's important to tackle. The Issue Foods Seems Pretty Complex I. I personally did not understand the the whole complexity and breadth and. Depth. For. Systems until I started engaging on this, there's a tendency that. Across. The different areas that constitute food systems we each look at the areas that impact us the most I'm from an agriculture sector perspective. So I look at how we produce food and I focus a lot on on how would produce help boxes food but there's so many other perspectives of food systems we to produce food we used a environment and and this definitely environmental perspective one but. To to consume food, it goes through several stages several of puth several things happen this whole complexity of issues around food systems from how produce it to how we move it around detail it tall with techy to the folk at the to the table. And and how influence how think about all that? There's a whole lot of. Influencing the also INS in the food system arena with regards to to to how again how food is produced how is moved reaches the table that impact. So a behavior that impacts how we think that impacts our culture. Food Systems extremely complex. It's about people's beliefs. It's about People's cultures, but it's also about life and how we leave and so so about how interact with the environment and I think how interact with the environment is probably. The most important. Part of what has gotten us in this conversation, how we interact with the environment has resulted in a security from from a food production, assist him in impacting two things in impacting our climate. So because we do contribute to emissions but also in impacting by diversity and how diversity walks for us all and yet we know that they've they've versity besides having the rich life itself. We it's something that we need to be able to to live a full life. So those are two parts of impacting the environment, but there's there's another perspective of food systems are also impacting our health one in every three. People this. The let the biggest cause of today is is how eat the type of food we eat is on nutrition we still have. About six, hundred, one, thousand, nine, hundred people to. That even amidst the plenty because we do have a lot of food in this world. The plenty a still going hungry. And, then there's this whole challenge around. The fact that I talked about that, we have so much food being produced to the extent that one trillion dollars worth of food western every one trillion dollars worth of food. So so meaning, we could actually feed the people that are going hungry or with how much we stink. So that is another perspective and then I talked about the issue of equitable neighborhoods and access to food, and then the issue of just ensuring that we have resilience in food systems so that we don't have challenges as we've seen with COVID data result of. Our. Our reaching. Overreaching inability to to access food that ends up gritting what sorts of other problems. So in a nutshell. We have those challenges but I think the most important part of our food system, which is the reason we are having different systems summit. The most important part of all that is recognizing the. Despite what we able to do we are awestruck in all the digital set out the top to do with food systems whether it is reducing poverty. Or whether it is reducing hunger or were they tease nutrition and how nutrition for us whether it is how impacting our environment reducing West The the perspectives of our food system, that I'm putting impacted by this digits not working with and in many cases are truck. So so the whole complexity of all these things being of truck is really what lead to. The secretary general last year calling for Food System Summit Thou be able to look at the challenges that the summit. The I mean the food system is presenting, but also the opportunities that the food system does present if we if we choose to look at it from a different angle, and if we choose to do different things and this summit is really about helping US Open the world governing action and helping people choose to do things differently what for you a successful food system summit like? A successful food summit with first of all governor is all the people that we are looking to engage because a food system summit in each and every one of us. So for me, I see our ability to rich and NIA and be able to mobilize mobilize cautiousness around what is broken in our food system, and how often system should change would be point number one, govern ising energy, and stressed. in you will looking at food system. So that would be point number one. How would we mobilize or wild to cut our food system number two would be. Recognized that we are off truck, how will we set ourselves doucet ambitions for ourselves to do things differently, the number of areas where action has already been defined with look at parties. When you could digits most of the things I've already been defined. The question is we off truck. The question is we are not on missions and not much ink or our actions are not much inclined to have laid out to do. So the For me success would be that we raise the on Bishen too much what we have laid out as what we wanted to see we know what wants to see, but we are not raising mission high enough to be. Able to come through those things. So number three is that we when we do have some commitments around, we can do to raise those ambitions to the that will transform our food system to new type of system. So for me, those would be the probably the three most important things. As you say, there is enough food for everyone, but people are still starving the environment is still being damaged. How is this failing system evolved? We've we've built excesses within insisting that we probably don't need that for me that would be point number one again, I talked about the amount of westward within our system. Do we have to have that type of West? We've designed a food systems in ways that are not responding to what we need as people. Is it possible to step back and escort sims? What do we really need and how focus but we need more than what is good to have? So we already have the good thing is have that knowledge would did have a not a lot of knowledge are around what is good for us and what is good for environment also have a lot of merger on what we are doing wrong and also have a lot of noted including technologies around what to do differently. That's why talk about ambition that's why I took about committing to that ambition. So what we need, it's what we need to do is not rocket science. What we need to do mostly is about. Galvanizing mobilizing their level. Of Energy into our systems and red level of interest but also the right level of political commitments from within our countries where we need to do that. And but also one shouldn't forget is mobilizing the right level of engagement for more private sector because food systems. Much as impacts all of us, we also a different players in different places at different times, and we have a whole lot of of players that do do engaging in different places and the interest change and their willingness to change and their willingness to work with all of us to find the right pieces of the food system that should be going forward. When we agree on what needs to be abandoned is but is some is as much a public good as it is a private sector thing that must all come around around. An unreadable together and yes, it's true. We have a central group that is working to help us understand the evidence of where we need to be going and what we need to be taking forward. And these people are galvanizing. Evidence from one of the world and they're looking at a tweet has been working in different places and they're looking at what what would work for where we are going. So we are going to build a lot of Of what we take forward on on the evidence that the central could group that has been put together will provide for us as as what constitutes what going forward looks like what leap what what we leave behind looks like. So we are going to to really depend a lot on what descent sense group is going to tell us. Do you think it's going to be difficult few to hold together the

"The ripple effects of panic buying that grip distractions at the beginning of the corona virus crisis. Still leaving some supermarket shelves empty. A supply lines catch up with themselves.

Persecution of China's Uighur Muslims exposed

"Today we're looking at recent revelations about the plight of Chinese weaker. Muslims growing beards praying in public and calling someone overseas. These are some of the offenses for which we have been interned. In camps in the Xinjiang region of China these revelations appeared in a document leaked out of China known as the character list the F. T. Reporters working on the story are here to tell me about how they discovered the document and who they spoke to. Kristin Shepard is on the line from Beijing and Lord Patel is an Ankara so Christian. Let's start with you. There have been several different document dumps and leaks about China's programs in Xinjiang and various ways. In which the weaker minorities and other minorities are treated in this part of the country. What do these leaks? Tell us. That's new the previous documents that came out of Times and International Consortium for journalists. They were really the high levels plans from the top. Xinjiang and other Chinese government officials including president season paying and they lay out the overview of what wanted to happen than what this set of documents tells us is really the grounds. I view of what was happening dates day. How these decisions made who was making them. An why was so many by most estimates. It's over million Weigo's and other minorities in the region. Why exactly why they sent to camps and things that it reveals is the the reasonings were often for very minor offenses things that have spaw. The Chinese state could be worked up into things that would be seen as signs of extremism but in any other sides he will be very hard to consider as anything that would warrant a year. Ill more attention talk to us a little bit about how you got a hold of the documents. And what was in them? Documents were possibly by a Wego activist. I've developed a UP He's a linguist who is living in Europe in exile in recent years and he was posses documents from contacting seen John on what they is a very long spreadsheet a hundred thirty seven pages which full of personal information names dates of birth and importantly judgments about who is to be sent to reeducation camps in this county of Xinjiang are cash. And then how can you be sure that they're real? What steps did you take to verify them? There a number of different ways. You can go about trying to verify things. One thing that we did was go and look at other government documents to check the dates and the language used see if those matched they also because they contain a lot of personal information addresses. Id numbers relationships between individuals. Those are all things that you can look up on various dates bases so we checked for example the ID numbers of the people mentioned in the documents against their addresses if they came up with the same addresses as those online than that would suggest that the documents north and take on the old cases. We tried that the case we also got experts to vet them experts in China Studies. And then finally we're able to track down. Some of the family members of individuals mentioned on the list. Now Laura from your end you went to speak to people who are living abroad in Turkey. Who had family members documented in the car cash list? Can you tell us a bit more about the people that you spoke to? Who were they? Yes at the start of genre. I went to go and see a couple cooled often pods and risen saw and they're originally from Kara cash province. They now live in Istanbul with three children so both of them had relatives. Who are missing. They're both missing. Both sets of parents older siblings. They haven't spoken to them for years. And then you about the car crash list documents but when I first went to sea than they haven't yet found any on it so I asked them to give me a list of names of missing family members. The ages that children and that's what they did a few weeks later. We had the woman risen. Saw had found to have sisters that coupon She found the names on the list and she gave us the entry numbers on Christian checks the Chinese records the details of Sheikh giving us and they match frankly a real difference was at the age of the people were slightly out because the list dates back to two thousand eighteen that must have been quite an emotional revelation for her. What did she say about her sister's yes. She told me about his sister's past About her relationships with them it was very Saad. I think it was mixed feelings visa. One of his sisters who she knew had been detained for quite a long time. She actually said that she might be dead. So in some ways you know there was some sense of relief landing. The her oldest sister Rozelle's was probably still alive but at the same time. She had no idea that her younger sister pottum him would even be considered the detention. She said that she was kept us out of trouble. She described Howard's of shops young women. You know they used to fight sometimes to become when they were talking about close. It was very active picture that she painted the House to round little bakery together and she was just completely shocked. Find her on the list tonight. She'd been in detention and that was very upsetting. When was the last time that you've spoken with Pottum? In particular. She Law Specht pod to him at the same time she spoke to have parents which was back in June twenty. Sixteen things have been getting more difficult to have found the relatives back home. And the compensation that they had will often quite mundane because it was upset me out of the question they could speak about politics even talk about the situation in. Kashan what it was like for the family so she told me that she chatted with pods him about their relatives about positive. Clothes THAT IS INSIDE SENT. Ofa have family members when somebody was visiting and has sister was talking about which should keep the hassle which give other relatives. It was a kind of normal by Monday conversation. She had no idea it'd be the last one that they would ever have. And did she keep trying to reach her after that yes. She tried several times after that to cool and she got no answer she said. Said every time Iran butts the mandarin Chinese cannot be connected. Eventually result still trying. She didn't WanNA put her family members in danger and she hasn't spoken to them since summer of Twenty Sixty Christians were other people's stories similar to resume says in her family's Yes. There were a number of cases that were very similar in the lists attempts case was entered as number three hundred fifty eight and Offenses were down as having one more child than allowed by the family planning policy. That was actually the most common offense and reason given for people being sent to reeducation camps for many is decades. China has had very strict curbs on the number of children that families are allowed to have and traditionally weaker families would be allowed to have more children but recently there have been more restrictions on the number of children that we are allowed to have as part of the security campaign and it seems that a large number of people on the lists were targeted for reeducation because of this tendency to have more than the state thought was the appropriate number of children other offenses included. Things like connecting to people overseas any effect. In this case it was noted as appoints positive for a later release that she hadn't tried to contact her sister other things included travel growing bid. Praying home things that would be considered a just a normal part of everyday life or religious practices. And do we have a sense of why China has targeted these minorities in this particular way? What do we already know about how they're treated and how they're perceived by the state? Will this crackdown really began around? Two thousand fourteen an around that time there were a series of violent incidents both in Xinjiang also across China which the state says were traded by often we goods or other minorities and the response to that. Was this blanket security campaign in Sin John Mass police rallies a huge bulking up the surveillance apparatus bringing some high technology like facial recognition cameras but the cornerstone of this whole campaign was a system of camps known as reeducation camps. We don't know the exact number because China keeps the details of this system fairly secretive but their thoughts. Be Over. A hundred and these Often huge complexes that sprung up in recent years where anyone who was thought to be a potential extremists could be sent for reeducation in order to try and avoid that the coming of risk to the state but we now know who these documents at that the definitions that we use to determine who tension the extremists were things as mentioned before that are often very Monday just everyday practices of we use so Christian. You also went to carry cash to see what was going on. I think you've visited at least once probably more than once. What was it like and did you manage to speak to any people while you were there? It's extremely difficult to speak to anyone because the surveillance apparatus is so sophisticated that whenever a foreign journalist arrives in the region they will be immediately followed by state security agents. So although I was able to go there and move around with some freedom. It's extremely difficult to talk to individuals because any conversations with them could potentially put them at risk I was able to see was that they had been huge changes to society. I mean this is a region which is about ninety percent or more week. There were very few working age men on the streets. The neighborhood wearing a lot of people mentioned in the lists were living a lot ebben. Demolished parts of it were locked off and seemed to have large security gates. Meaning that anyone who wanted to come in and out would have to go through numerous checks. I only saw some elderly or young people in the streets alleys also able to get close to a number of the reeducation camps but not in most cases close enough to actually see the camps because police would set up roadblocks to prevent me from getting any nearer. But you could still see a lot of changes that happened to society in car cash. For example. The second largest mosque in the town have been demolished. That was just an antiquated rebel. That you could see the there were large textile mills. Knit one of the camp locations where we were bust. Apparently from the counts to a juice textiles which then likely be sold across China and potentially across the world so this system is really remolded the society in Calcutta which is the coins of it. The clues in the name. The full Chinese name is transformation through education camps. And that's what the Beijing government is hoping to achieve. Its to transform large parts of weak as society to make it more compliance in line with how Beijing the society to be in addition to reporting on the ground. Were there other mediums that you used to document or to observe HOW SOCIETY INCH? Jiang had been remolded. Yes we also able to find satellite imagery that can thumbs a lot of the changes that have been taking place. So if you look back to the very start of the campaign. A lot of these complexes that are identified in the lists as being reeducation camps just didn't exist and there's been a massive amounts of building huge spooling complexes often it's a campaigner detention center and factory will in one area alternate industrial pogs outside of the town which are the same areas. Wed Police were locking my entry. So that also provides a kroger writing evidence of the location and the scale of the camps. What do we know about the training? People receive once they're in the camps and also how they move through the camp system and then eventually back out into society. A lot of the training is around Mandarin Chinese around Chinese law around Chinese politics but it's essentially ideological and it's forcing people to do things like singing songs. That praise the Communist Party to learn for example that they are not allowed to hold religious ceremonies outside of those sanction directly by the state. So it's forcing views of the states into the minds of people go to the camps the amount of time that they spend that it's meant to be a minimum of a year and can be much longer normally what we can know from the list and from other government documents is that they would spend a year doing reeducation than they were spend a period to a vocational training which would be to learn for example how to operates machinery so they could be moved onto a tree job which is essentially involvement treaty. Labor. The other option in some cases full people who released but still kept on the surveillance is that they might be allowed to return to their own weather placed under what is known as monitoring and control and that's essentially a probation period. Where minimum of a year? They will constantly be checked by security forces and if they were to do anything which be considered another sign of extremism they might return to the camps have these camps in this camp system. Been publicly acknowledged by President Xi Jinping or the Chinese government presidency has never acknowledged spoken directly about the CAM system at toll but the government and the authorities in Xinjiang have acknowledged the existence of the system. What they deny is that there is any form of abuse happening here instead. They say that this is a fairly humane way of tackling extremism unday would call the camps vocational education training centers. In fact just recently. They have said that the camps although they remain the no longer being used for any kind of anti extremism training programs they announced pill use vocational training. Although this is something that we are exiles and rights groups lead is unlikely to be true. Thanks Laura and

Startups looking for funding. Have a lot more options lately from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Molly would. Venture capital firms that were invested in lift Uber. And Pinterest just got paid when those companies went public and the banks foundations and pensions that fund, the venture capital funds, we'll get a lot of money too. So, yeah, these big firms will now have more to invest and they'll get more powerful, but the venture industry is changing. There are lots more smaller players like angel investors. Usually really rich people who want to help fund companies and increasingly even everyday investors. Have more ways to get in on the next pre IPO tech unicorn, Jason Calcutta's is a tech entrepreneur and angel investor who got in on Uber when it was still a pipe dream. I asked him how VC is evolving. There are the funds that have been around for decades like sequoia, Kleiner Perkins or benchmark, and those firms have partners who may stay with them for multi decades, and they are the first stops when a founder comes to Santo road or San fr. Francisco. And then there's a new crop of angels. And I went from being essentially a nobody or somebody who was kind of annoying in the industry. This journalist entrepreneur with a big mouth and a big social media following in a podcast to now I'm the first stop were in the first two or three stops for angel investing. I'm the most successful active angel investor in Silicon Valley. So then let's talk about the industry. I mean, we know that these exit is big unicorns. Going public is important for the firms that have funded them and the angel investors that funded them, and how might that money then get funneled back into new startups. Like how important is it to that future person with a PowerPoint injury? It's critically important. I'm in Bolden. Now, having had a couple of grade exits to put more money into my own funds, and put more money to work. So that is a specific phenomenon that occurs, which then benefits the next generation of founders, and we saw that with people who made a lot of money off of Google than invested in Facebook and Twitter, the Facebook and Twitter. Folks, obviously invested in Airbnb and Uber. Yep. One complaint. I have heard actually about venture capital right now is that there's a lot of the same money going into the same big companies and there's maybe not as much diversity. Is it possible that the inflow of money could change that dynamic, and introduce some more innovative investing the venture firms have raised bigger and bigger funds? So the VC's are looking for companies that have a lot more traction, a lot more revenue fuller management teams. So the world's changed the markets are much more efficient, but they're private and this is where the SEC and the investment rules for private companies have to evolve, and we're starting to see that with equity crowdfunding where civilians non accredited investors people with under a million in net worth under two hundred thousand a year in income are being able to write small checks through platforms like Sede invest and Republic. So that's going to be I think the future. And that process is just starting. Ng Jason Kao. Kansas is a tech entrepreneur and angel investor as the number of angel and nontraditional investors in the US has increased. So has the percentage of female investors from five percent in two thousand and four two more like twenty six percent as of two thousand sixteen. And now for some related links. There's a link to a story in entrepreneur magazine on our website marketplace tech dot org.

However, I am definitely aware that a lot of times when we talk about diversity in venture capital. We're talking about adding more white women, so to that effect.

"Of celebrities and served as a personal photographer for Saint Teresa of Calcutta. So you got inspired. This still seems that building a business and photography would have a great deal of uncertainty attached to it. How did you go about getting started from a business standpoint who helped you along the way who help you think through all of that? Well, I have to say it does involve a lot of faith. And it involves a lot of blind faith, Tom in regard to taking that step forward and being immersed in that sort of inspiration to always go forward and to continually finding personal projects. I have to say with all of us that can be called in some ways successful. It always comes as a result of other people. And I was very fortunate when I was twenty one years old to meet Frank Sinatra, and I met him just by chance and a small theater over in Saint Carlos called the circle star theater about six years later. I ended up doing photography for him. And he used to love telling stories backstage, and he would often times tell me say kid live. Each day as if it's your last because one day, you'll be right now when I was in my twenties, I felt like well, I'm only one bad picture away from being dumped in the bay with cement shoes. But he was very kind and he ended up. Introducing me to a lot of his friends, and I ended up doing a lot of photographing a lot of musicians some of the rat pack, and certainly some friends like Ella. Fitzgerald lies Manelli. Paul Anka, the list goes on and on and I really site Sinatra being somebody who was very instrumental in terms of bringing me forward in the business and introducing me to his friends if he'd like to he was very loyal, and very helpful. In fact, one of his daughter said in his lifetime. I think he gave away about a billion dollars in charity in his not in his name. He always kinda kept his name out of it. But I would say that he was probably the most instrumental as a young person getting started. And then it was really my inspiration to seek out individuals. That were changing the world that were making. Difference in the world that really inspired me. And that really led me to meeting Mother Teresa. This is Tom Laura. You're listening to the mentors radio show. We're speaking with Michael copy one of our nation's must treasured assets and preeminent, photographers. So you're on this journey. Frank Sinatra really put you up on the radar screen. And you said you then I'm going to ask questions. So how does it work with commissions some somebody now seeking you? They just call you up and say like to have you take my picture or? Yeah. I think over at Safeway. Make it work all of those ways. In fact, I think it's the best thing for a young business person is word of mouth, and once you get a reputation of taking a picture of somebody than the word spreads. And I think in the early years even to this day. I don't have an agent representing me. It's really word of mouth. It's it's one by one somebody says something, you know, it's actually a smaller kind of world than we all think. But I think it was it was mostly recommendations that led me to other people and certainly inspiration. Again, you can go back to sort of our path our path in life. Spiritually based that leads you to certain people that change your life. So now somebody calls you up they want you to do a picture. What is the process you? Go spend time with them a day to take three days. What does it take before you finally get them to sit down and start shooting? Or did you take a lotta pictures over time? But it just depends. You know, I feel that I can pretty much take a a portrait within moments. And in fact, you lose somebody if it's goes too long. There are people out there that like being photographed I think for most of us, including myself, we don't like being photographed. So it's it's a challenge. And I think to make that process very easy to make it very personal as you know, it is a personal kind of process one on one. I'm not I don't consider myself to be necessarily a photo journalist. I enjoy that process of taking a portrait of somebody which means to really sit down face to face and getting to know that person. And it goes back to some of the early things that Richard avid on. On top me in regard to certainly in our digital age. You know, we're oftentimes behind the camera. I think as often as we can to be able to put that camera on a tripod. So that we can be face to face with the subject the results would be far better because they'd be much more realistic. So you reminded me of my my children who didn't like to add before to graft a lot they say oh dad, you could do it again. That's right now that they have children. I think they have a cameras one of their appendages they wherever they go. They're taking pictures. I mean, it's kind of funny how the whole thing evolves. But what I'll have to do next time. Take a tripod when I shouldn't tell him. I wanna. Put the cell phone on a unattractive. So you've been you've been out. Thinking about people you want to photograph and one of them was Mother Teresa, how did you meet Mother Theresa? How did that story of all? Well, I saw a movie when I was in high school. I went to a local high school here Serra high school over in San Mateo. And I saw movie called something beautiful for God. That was done by Malcolm, Muggeridge that very much inspired me to know more about her at that time in nineteen seventy six it was before she won the Nobel peace prize. It was before she really was world famous, but she was famous enough to be out there on film and books. So I really immersed myself to find out more about her five or six years later. I heard she was coming to the cathedral speak. I had friends that worked for the archdiocese that said they'd leave a seat up front. So I ended up walking in late. I went down through the basement of the cathedral. And as soon as I went down through the basement stairs. She was right in front of me walked up to me as if we were meant to meet and invited me to come back to her house. The next morning. To see her particular mission her novitiate that she was establishing in San Francisco. And as soon as I rang the doorbell she said, I'm so happy you're here because you're gonna drive me around to my appointments today. So that's how we got to know each other. So when you met her what was the first thing that struck you about her presence. Well, I would say that first of all physically she was quite small. She was about four foot eleven had very large hands and misshapen feet in Dole's that almost look like tree roots. Very warm penetrating is greenish blue eyes that were quite penetrating, very lovely, and laughing and funny and incredibly personable, I really noticed immediately Tom that humility that she possessed and that ability to see the face of God and people that she encountered in her life. Being completely selfless. And she. I mean, one of the things that I I've seen her a number of videos and everything and she was a. To me. She's a great story for people that seek power and money in this world because she was one of the most powerful people in the world when she passed away. That she owned nothing. That's right. And she ran on. All she does is run a not all but she had her sisters. That's right. That is to me. The amazing story about Mother Teresa incredible. It was that combination of deep conviction and deep humility, and it was truly going back to love at the center of her particular existence. She never saw herself as a social worker. She saw herself as being the spouse of Jesus, and she was going to spread that particular love throughout the world. And it didn't matter what religious person she was in front of whether it was the Hindu Muslim didn't matter what religious conviction that individual had. She was going to spread love to the world and through that individual. I once asked her did she ever get tired of the suffering that she encountered and the individuals who are suffering. And she said, you know, I can only love one person at a time. I can only serve one person at a time. So that's how I go about doing my work one by one. So there's great lessons for all of us, regardless of our walk. Of life. We we're gonna take a break. And when we return we're gonna continue with Michael copy, one of our nation's premium portrait, photographers as he shares lessons learned from working with saints.

Lots of Shakespeare plays some of the great Shakespeare plays like King Lear, Titus andronicus. Lots of violence this. I doubt Jay this limbs being cut off it's incredibly Brousseau.

Had to be the king's birthday or something like that and he's forced to give a ball and have it in party and he's so tired of it that he writes to his friend and he says and i quote like a fool.

House are the ten feet tall wrought iron gates right. Yeah and that wrought iron gates is actually keeping the garden in right. yes the the gardens. It's daughter of being the treeless expanse space. So some of the early photograph if you look at them. Although watercolors you'll see that is just like a may the on expanse of land right and it was only later that it actually started having some sort of garden and trees and bonds and things so the the construction of the garden itself is almost representative of how. The government has functioned with each governor general. That came in and particularly the wife of the governor general. They will decide on what to do with the garden space so it was only by the time of lord meal for example that you know they had a dedicated to the idea of what the landscape should be designed as a but before that they were not as invested in that Idea or maybe they just didn't have the money for it. Took to having spent so much on hand on the building but for the longest A time this vast twenty six acres of land sat in the center of calcutta with end the building sort of league. This crowning jewel issue said rising up from emission expanse of land For everyone to see right and even the so again a little bit of reference for some of our listeners who are not not very familiar with calcutta's landscape architecture landscape is the british nerve center. Was this area in lousy. And so all the offices or the government organizations all come into lousy and the and the government house sits in the middle. Yeah right so again to give a little bit of history so it was. It was the captain wyatt. Right of who is a civil architect. Who was who was called upon to prepare the plan for designing the building. And this is where we will tell you. Why cousin has written two volumes. Do huge volumes on the history of government house in calcutta right cook. So i didn't know this about loggers and mainly because i hadn't made the connection until i started because corson's ancestry home was the carrollton hall of the cadets manner which was one of the finest homes in all of england really yes it is.

"Not just because you know it was a place where the highest office in. The land was held where that men are. The person lived but also in the way drew presented. The empire issue said so that in that sense. We really want to think about architecture. As a way of representing babo right as even as and again architecture especially the government house. It's also it also adds legitimacy right do the british root to the continuation of british rule in india. And the fact that this This this architecture wonder if you might call it that you know it. It was the official residence of The left in the governor general and then the viceroy for more than one hundred years right so there is something to talk about how how much the british invested in the government house. And it's also again like we were talking about. Every every architecture has controversy surrounding it and are very closely linked with the political and colonial climate off the time and is here again. One should mention that. There was a slight bit of controversy. That comes about when you know when hastings and then richard wellesley decide that they want to put up the government house and eastern the company as some of you may know eastern british east. India company was a privately held company. That worked out of written. It had a quarter of directors and so whoever the governor general was always needed approval always need permission for for anything that they were carrying out in india. But it's controversial. But the controversy. That comes up here. Is that well as lee. Pretend and this is really interesting that you see the governor general pretending saying that. Oh i sent a letter to the board of directors asking for approval and then have we talked about the author of the book yet. We will get to then so you know so. He talks so he says oh. I sent the letter to the board of directors and so the author says no that copy of that letter has not ever been found. So there's so and the board of directors at this point has no no other option but to go ahead and because of construction it already started and by the time wisely actually leads the board of directors or the board finds out. It's already about a year too late. So so you see how the how the so the monopolistic power of the british and the company when it comes to making every decision unilaterally about india starts to be questioned even in something like the construction of the government house right.

"Think there is this long quote. You know the first. The first idea of government house comes from warren hastings. The first governor general of india and bengal. And this is. This is a court that he talks about why the government house is necessary in galata. And so the code goes and i quote that high office has always been expected to maintain a considerable degree of state to follow a strict ceremonial observance and to entertain on a lavish scale. Such practice was not only inexact. Hominy with indian tradition which associated sovereignty with splendor but it was also demanded by the british population of bengal. Who expected the head of the government and the representative of the monarch to deal with the native nobles and also with themselves on a footing not merely of equality but advantage and to hold a court in calcutta that should more than reproduce the etiquette and dignity of the court at home. You so there's a lot of a lot of aims and there's a lot of plants that hastings has about the significance off the government house right because again politically as we know. This is the time of the orientalist. William jones in hastings who are all talking about collaboration. Right right cultural collaboration. You know trying to find common links common traces so you see even the nature of the reason why he wants. Government has to come up is again to to kind of recognize acknowledge how indian tradition works. And how the british works i. I think it's also interesting that In that court he sort of mentioned that it is about representing the empire representing england. But it is also it makes a crucial point about diplomacy. Right right he's talking about. I mean this is obviously like early on in the nineteenth century. I don't think the british are still thinking of india as their own right. Like i'm still dealing with the indian rogers and the noble also. Diplomacy is key in the way he's thing sort of talks about it And which. I found really interesting and he wants to do it on equal footing like you saying diplomatic relations. Yeah he says just like those blender that the indian rogers are accustomed to therefore we also need to have a splendid structure for ourselves. So that's quite interesting that there is. There is a statue school right right is being displayed right and also i mean you know it is it is supposed to be a place that represents you know britain in most finest most lavish scale right. So there's obviously like you're saying this image to represent britain in india and they're using and this is something you know and since architecture yukon talk about british india not talk about their architecture and legacy right every building that they have put up in. Any part of the country is representing. Something is not right. And i would strongly recommend everyone to go and read thomas graphs splendors of yes. Bend us the all the architecture and empire like you know the the all the books written by thomas metcalfe on british architecture in india like great and really really useful to understanding why architectures going to notions of foul and how architecture forms the idea of power. We just saw important in the case of government house to think about architecture as undeniably linked to the practice of right..
