And we kaplan i just think it's a little rich to hear philadelphia complain about janas doing this when he literally stole a book out of joel. Embiid's playbook giuliani.

The Art & Science of Rock Gardening
"Thinking about it from the gardening perspective. When you say a rock garden will start there. What what what is a rock garden mean exactly. Well you know. It's a books of unwritten about it. Hundreds of books matter of fact but graham stuart thomas wrote the classic but it really can't comes back to the nineteenth century and victorian so to speak and europe is well when tourists started going to use. There were just stunned by the beauty of the flowers. And they want to take them home and they did they dig them up and take them home and they'd started by building these raucous and they were pretty dreadful and you can still see him an old neighborhoods around stuff so it really was about taking that the app spec home but that was the beginning. There's another beginning. Of course that goes back to china in in the third century when the poet chen or being during the six dynasties period here he describes a building a garden with rocks and wildflowers. So that the the asians have been doing that not alpine so much more woodland plants and that's really what most americans do because especially in the east and the west coast. That's what you go best woodland plants so my vision of rock guiding is not strictly alpine although the outlines of pretty cool you know your audience can't see the screen behind me but it's actually a garden in and utah. The belongs to a man named john steiermark and it's nothing but dry land plants from the american west and africa and a spectacular fall any alpine vista. So the truth be said what for me. What rock gardening as i had to sum it up in a sentence would be recreating a something natural around you so that you can have fun with nature and learn so for me. A rock garden could be a bog. Could be a prairie. It could be a a border of plants. Big ones little ones. that are more or less naturalistic. The bottom line is really wild plants. More than anything else i mean. We have cultivars of of these plants but for me in my experience rock gardening. Because i've been a member of the rock garden society for example for about fifty years and the scottish and english as well and was astonishing. Is this this community of people who really know. Plants like nobody. I mean botanist. I guess not planning on way but rock gardeners have this extraordinary ability to know the plan from the time it's the seed till it matures. And it's the rock gardeners. I think of the world who are some of the greatest explorers and plant worshipers. Shall we say yes certainly. And that is my favorite thing about these very specific groups and yes botanists an ecologists. They have their own interaction. But there's few people in the department. At least that. I work in in many of the departments. I know of that can grow a plant or really truly get to understand plant. Quite like gardner does and those specific groups when you start to find people that super specialize they are encyclopedia's of both knowledge and the artistry of it. And that's what excites me. The most about rock gardening is it. Is that sort of emphasis on species which excites me. I liked cultivars plenty enough but to me. The species did at the best nature invented the best and has unparalleled. But then you get to express yourself a little bit and try to recreate something this this honoring of nature honoring the landscape and rock. Earning really emphasizes that more than a lot of other types of guarding. Perhaps by is just trying to recreate or at least honor something. That nature has done over millennia. Which isn't easy but it's also very rewarding. When you do something come out of the other

Protests Persist In Myanmar Even As The Military Tightens Its Grip On Power
"Saying they'll hand over authority to whomever wins. What they're not saying, though, is when that election will happen. Huge protests are still happening across me and marred by day and by night when police come to neighborhood searching for protesters to arrest Residents turn out banging pots and pans. Many people just want their democracy back. But Myanmar's ethnic minorities say this uprising needs to go much further as the world's Patrick win reports When Stella Naw was a little girl going to school in the hilly northern part of Myanmar, she learned all about the greatness of the Burmese, the country's dominant ethnic group. She learned about their ancient kings, how they built Golden temples and had mighty armies. That was fine. But what about her ethnic group, the kitchen with more than a million people, mostly living in the mountains? Well, the textbooks didn't say much about them at all about the kitchen people with about two lines. We were just learning as we were learning about some people who were extinct, already not totally extinct, the school, said. The kitchen where farmers who like to do this neat dance Stella says that was about it. We were nothing more than some cute people with not much history. This is how the country's military rulers who are all ethnically Burmese tend to see minorities as people who should just assimilate. Get out of the way. But in Myanmar more than a third of all people are minorities groups such as the Sean Kitchen Corin kn mon, wiry, kind Chen Rohingya. It is a very diverse place yet the army has been trying to colonize their indigenous lands for decades. Often brutally even blasting villages with fighter jets. I asked Elena, who is now a political writer and activist how her people the kitchen tend to feel about the army. Disgust, fear they feel disgust set off the military for all the human rights abuses that they have committed against the community members. Two weeks ago, when the general sees total power in a coup rolling tanks through major cities, including the Heartland where most Burmese people live, Stella gnaw and other minorities were like Yeah, looks familiar. I even have someone asking me how do you feel to lose their freedom? All of us sudden, like I never felt like we had the freedom to begin where, right? Myanmar is now in the throes of a huge uprising at people's uprising, with doctors and students and factory work per person. Strike everyday people standing up the tanks and riot cops and rarely has the whole country. All the racial groups been united United in anger at the military. For Stella. Naw, it feels pivotal, like okay, now, maybe we're all on the same page. This is an opportunity, maybe to help them understand a bit, but also, we can really hope and expect too much because they are so focused on releasing freeing often Sergi Aung San Suu cheat the most popular political leader in the country ever. Especially among the Burmese majority. She's backed by the US and for the past five years on sense, UCI has shared power with the Army until the coup That was the status quo. What many minorities are now telling their Burmese brothers and sisters is let's fight for a real democracy because that status quo For many, it was miserable. It's a village on fire the village once home to Rohingya Muslims following an army purge about three years ago. The army has violently driven more than one million Rohingya out of the country. Years. Nay Sandlin, a Rohingya activist, You know military is the one who committed the genocide against the Rohingya. So we have no reason to support this military coup. But he does say that for his people. The coup doesn't change much. Many already live under an apartheid like system. For example, most Rohingya can't vote. And, yes, he says, some Rohingya refugees did enjoy seeing on Sans Souci get ousted after all on San Souci did go to The Hague in 2019 to defend the army against charges of genocide. Niece. Unwin says that celebrating was just a knee jerk reaction. We informed them. This is not the right way to enjoy detention off society. We have to support the public movement, even if we don't want to support heart or the whole party. They take the long view. He says that the army will never change its ways. But maybe in the future elected officials might begin to stick up for the Romanian. So now in refugee camps, you can hear this growing in survivors of genocide, beating pots and pans in solidarity with Burmese protesters. Nation. Lin is even seeing Burmese people who never stood up for the Rohingya saying Sorry we should have done something they realized their cruelty off this military. And they have the sympathy for us. But like Stella, non, he knows racism won't just go away overnight. This racism is deeply rooted in the country, so it will take a lot of time to change. Only they don't have time. This mass resistance is happening now. And Stellan Aw says it needs to become a more inclusive fight, not just for democracy, but to get the army off. Minorities backs once and for all. That's what brings kitchen people out on the streets in her hometown machina. You see fewer protest signs about Aung San Souci, and more that say, Abolish the Constitution basically overhaul the entire system. But this is how security forces responded to that. Over the weekend, Paul getting a boat, a barrage of rubber bullet, Maybe some real bullets seemingly fired in the air. No confirmed casualties That's from a Facebook live stream. But the army keeps blocking the Internet nationwide, in part to keep the world from seeing these crackdowns. What's clear is that resistance is becoming very dangerous for everyone. That's why Stella Naw says the only solution is to stick together, so we need to work together for this country to work and not become a failed nation, which is already on the way Myanmar's minority groups know quite well, she says that this army will not back down easily. For the world. I'm Patrick Win. Francis Cyber Security Agency says several French entities have been breached in a hacking campaign. They say the G R U

And i'll look down into a mirror a kind of like a table like our particular to my face underneath by chen. And i'll take tweezers than than i'll go ahead and put it on the middle. I pop it in the middle and pop in the outer corner inner corner and a having that relaxed lid really helps without straining to i And a blinking. That we are.

Jeff Bezos Exits as CEO, but His Role at Amazon Will Likely Be Little Changed
"Let's get onto jeff. Bazo stepping aside amazon. Ceo sixty-seven he's going to have a good life. He's been kind of executive chairman for a while. People say you read that that. No one's really ever seen him at the seattle campus and they're not sure if they've ever really seen him there. He's going to become executive chairman of the board. He's a steady intends to focus energy on new products and early initiatives. The company's top cloud executive andy jazzy. No relation to hugh. I'm told he's going to take over the ceo role in the third quarter. Thank you for being here. Becky i at least get you get you once in a while. You remember bart simpson. It took me a second. Yes a second calls the bar. He calls with the bar and says it. Could i speak to this jet huge jazz. You jazz ivana tinkle. There's other ones anyway. But we digress meantime amazon. This amanda this this is this is andy jazzy. Not not hugh jazz meantime. Amazon's earnings a fourteen zero nine beat estimates of seven. Twenty-three a share. That's easy to say that fourteen zero nine beat estimates of seven. Twenty-three the atmos community the they need to go back to their spreadsheets. Revenue of one hundred twenty five billion dollars also beat estimates and it marked the first time amazon's revenue exceeded one hundred billion dollars in a quarter. That's also easy to say but hard to fathom revenue exceeded one hundred billion dollars walmart. And i it didn't just exceed one hundred billion dollars and a quarter it exceeded one hundred and twenty five billion so it was the first time they'd gone over one hundred billion and they they didn't just like step over the line they like smacked it out of the park right. Even in a non holiday quarter. They're expecting a hundred to one hundred six billion dollars in the first quarter. That is a slowdown obviously sequentially from the fourth quarter of at thirty three percent higher than the same quarter a year ago. I saw that yesterday. And i have to say my chen kind of literally fell open when i was reading the headlines about it then i read bazo says note and his letter about why he's doing it and i get it and it makes sense and you mentioned that you know he's been out there doing other things for a while. Maybe not a huge surprise except for that. He's not going to be completely disconnected. He still gets to be involved with the whole thing but he gets to do what he wants to make. Sure there are other people. They're recognizing that they're running a lot of the day to day operations and stuff. But i mean it's a great job you said he's going to have a great life. He already has a great life. This is he gets to do what he wants to do. Laying out in that letter. Why he was doing it and all the things they've accomplished. I forgot about things like one click shopping. That was such a big deal when they actually did that. I think that was before. Two thousand because i think about i wrote about it for the wall street journal and that was such a revolutionary idea and now we think of it as being nothing and he said. That's the best thing that you can possibly hope for. Is that people yawn at your innovation because they become so commonplace. They've done so many things along the way the focus on customers what they've done with the cloud. I mean they've done so many things along the way and i was amazed blown away reading just his quick list of some of the things. He's proud about some of their accomplishments. Because i'd forgotten about some of them
Colleen Aubrey On Amazons Huge 2020 And What It Has Planned For 2021
"My guest today is calling. Aubrey the vp of performance advertising at amazon. Who has been a mainstay at industry preview. Now while colleen's title focuses on performance. Her purview goes well beyond that. I think a lot of our previous conversations focused on the branding side of things and it's always a big year for amazon and advertise advertising. Twenty twenty was big in particular. It was on advertising reported. I believe a fifty one percent year over year surge in its last earnings called and booted in great part of by e commerce. So of two thousand twenty was huge for amazon. What does twenty twenty one bring will calling is here to tell us all about that calling great to have you on again. Thank you mine. It's great to be here so you know. Obviously we've all been endorsed for the last thousand million years in that. Interim heavier picked up any any new hobbies new ways of passing the time yes to be honest. Twenty twenty is not going to go down as my favorite year while in the first few months it was a little bit novel working from home experimented with a bunch of new things to take advantage of the opportunity so we don't example as we did a bunch of virtual dinner parties and so we had different cuisine types and then was like shopping. I'll challenge but really the end of the day. i do. Miss the variety of life. Before the coronavirus and i really miss the less structured creative process of sort of working with people in the office having said that I reflected actually on twenty twenty one. I returned to work on the full. January and amazon's cultures really grounded invention and focused on our customers. And i was. I realized how incredible it has been the ways that we found new in creative ways to work together. And i think i'm very proud of the work that my team did we scrambled we adapted and we kept building and we also Cya different that. I think we spent more time looking out for each other up. More time recognizing the difficulties. And i think we became more flexible and then for me personally had develop new ways of engaging with people and be willing to share a little bit more of a puzzle experience and encourage people to take care of themselves. So you're from visual happy. Hours to all hands to community in employee. Donations match programs We worked really hard to be safe and civil customers each other and the communities. We work in the in the past when you and i talk in person. Remember those days You know you always have a lot to say you always have a lot to say about you know new products. That amazon is building the way you guys are kind of increasing the capabilities within amazon advertising. obviously twenty twenty was was a year of tremendous change. There was a huge surge ecommerce companies. That might not have been familiar with ecommerce. Suddenly in it So how did that impact you know your roadmap in two thousand twenty and how does all that activity from twenty twenty impact impact. Would you guys planned to do. Twenty twenty one. Yeah there's questions. I think the first thing was that we realized very early in twenty twenty that it was even more important for us to keep inventing and keep delivering new features and capabilities advertises. You know we. We know that brands are facing a myriad of new challenges and uncertainty. And said you know the the impetus asta keep delivering became even greater because we need to give brands the products and features to be able to adapt and create maximum value from their advertising investments. And that also includes empowering the partners which agencies in tool providers they work with to help them to adapt to this set of very rapidly changing landscape and increase their efficiency by eliminating eliminating some of the more transactional pots of of managing ad campaigns. So i know you can't probably detail your entire twenty twenty one roadmap few free to if you if you want to but can you give us a hint of how you know how specifically things might have might be changing for amazon advertising this year. Well this year. I guess is really a- a case of sort of building on what i think of being pretty significant of focus in twenty twenty And so for advertising specifically we continue to improve the programs and services we have available full partners and these partners airport supporting now sellers who continue to be a big focus for us a vendors and our office and i think twenty twenty was a breakout year in terms of the pace of wanting features to our api and as such getting hat into the hands upon us and into the hands allow advertisers to adaptor that shifting environment in customer needs so as an example we launched four times as many features to our advertising. Api in twenty twenty twenty nineteen and we made progress moving beyond campaign creation management to address content marketing so we won't post than amazon attribution emission product to the api we also launch Api's for product eligibility keyword translation content moderation invoicing and manager account operations. So you know despite working virtually i think we we found ways to accelerate out delivery of features we found ways to work more closely partners and across the full funnel said advertising products. And i think that will drive out. Twenty twenty a roadmap his ford. We've also seen like a new categories of companies jumping into all nine retail due to the due to the pandemic has that has has has amazon advertising had to change or rethink those features in order to accommodate some of those e commerce newbies. Well i can't really speak to the broader category chen's but i can say that your small and medium-sized businesses. Continue to make over. Fifty percent of all units sold in amazon stores and in fact during the past holiday season small medium sized businesses in the us so nearly a billion bucks in our stores and we continue to invest heavily in supporting these businesses so amazon teams launch more than two hundred eighty tools and services to help as i last year. And i think this continues to be a priority as the before do those. Those small medium sized businesses interact differently with amazon versus like the the big corporations you think about what's essential to To a business. There's there's a lot that is that is common And so you know that sort of foams the basis of where we start like. What is the common advertiser will business need. And then of course you have variants in the way that this needs sort of as you get into more of the specific challenges that each segment of customers that we have will be will be working to address. But i think there's some common pieces that are really important regardless you want You wanna be too operate efficiently. And this is i think we're focused on. The api partners in and that group of of businesses will serve on the very wide range of sellers vendors and authors from the quite small to very large on markets. And so you that way. By focusing on that it's a way for us to actually enable everyone to have full access to a feature said to to operate Efficiently and to operate in a way that suits their business whether they using the advertising council or whether they're working with experts on that help them drive growth of the

Trust me we didn't make fun of them. He books out at a rate. And it's like five or six times dusty. Says i'm new to the off road. Industry is a professional photographer and writer. What are some of the challenges. You face starting out as automotive jesus like an interview question. Yeah what's a child. What's the biggest challenge is shooting off road motorsports. Let's just boil down to something palatable. Sex is is so much about doing your homework. You know pre running a learning where you can and can't shoot. Where potentially the cars will get Roosted it out or dusty or just like it's so much just about forget about the car just focus on the background You know focus on what the car potentially could be doing focus on. Hey here's a jump here. You know that's how you get better off road photos. If you zoom in on the car and it's ripping through the desert and you just showed the car it could be in any desert in the world you know just step back a little bit and then really tell the story of that. And that's such a steep learning curve learning auto photography. You essentially have to run that same race your own off road vehicle to even get to that location. Yeah yeah so. That's the biggest challenge for me. Personally you're shooting landscape photography but with a motor sports shutter speed is what doing exactly and so you need to be in a landscape mindset. Yeah and on top of that. You have to follow the race. Yeah let's say the car passes you and you want to get it again. What do you do. How many miles of road do you have to cut to get to. What if you're what if you're not fast enough. And then he already passed to. Yeah and you're waiting for them. Shot the vegas sereno. Think exactly shot into the sunset. And i was three minutes to slow twist. It's gone. yeah it's happened. So many times where i just pull up to the spot that i think i got fast enough. I open my bag. And then i see him What was your first press car. And the first piece of content built around it. Do you get press cars ever. Yeah my most recent one was a porsche The the career for us. Oh the new. One not is yeah. It's not nice. I press car I think honestly it was the Gte six that's all right. That's a good one thousand. My first press car. They gave it to me for ten days. I put two thousand miles on that thing. I was like so cool. Yeah yeah my first press car was. Fj cruiser did not review it. Kindly even i gave a bad review to my first ever press car. you know. i have a in hindsight the things that i wanted out of. It are not what people like. you know. The resale value of those really. The drive is the indicator of whether or not. It's a good car now. Whether or not i like them. I just put a super mining kind of thing all right neat. I'm not an f j. Cruiser man myself but i get. Why people like Charles thank you for donation dante. Zero says larry. I've been trying to up my photo game. I know the rule of thirds. I'm starting to understand how focal length change things. What's the next thing. I should work on I think the next thing that you can really focus on is shutter speeds and kind of how it affects the photos. You're shooting because once you get a introduced that motion aspect of photography. There's so many different ways.

"In the world. The everyone something about that van is so charming to everybody that it's my wife's daily driver and she took my press car home. I gotta lincoln. Aviator she took it home and left that here but she. I have to have to pry that thing from her fucking cold dead hands ever. Have you ever want something funky funky to shoot. Yeah that's a good one all weekend. That could be one of the cars sign up in the justification or shift ferrari lamborghini thirty year old van. Nobody likes that van. But everyone else thinks it's dumb but yeah i mean if you want to go. That's a good one. I like that one. Yeah i just wanted to show in normal scenarios when you're shooting at night like this Fairly urban setting a neon lights in the background for night of fairly well lit scene. Are you shooting long exposure on sticks or is the iso up high enough that you can just hand held. Rip with this. That's the thing is with these modern cameras. It's insane. i'm shooting with thousand or whatever. I just posted a video means to of using My wendy mark three and shooting at ten thousand eyeso- and it's no grain good barely ruining. It's usable still and even blown up full-size. it's not so bad but saw a right now. I'm using two cameras. okay. I'm using the canon are five. Which is our new mirrorless camera. And i'm so in love with this thing. It's so good as forty five megapixels. And i use that when i kind of need to slow down a little bit because it's not a very good action camera Yeah not as responsive to that. It's it's more the fact that i can't i can't see the subject with my eyes. I feel like. I just cannot get those decisive moments. That are milliseconds. It'll get there soon. Maybe even in the next generation and by that you mean looking through and look in an lcd screen versus through a viewfinder. Yes so like the are five. It does have an electric finder. But there's just a little bit of a disconnect when it comes to just high speed action you know when the car is slower or when it's just sitting there or if it's a subject for example even if i'm shooting my family my kids or use are five and oh my god. It's so good it is so good and it's really is our it's about four thousand dollars i think. Can you get is it. He didn't get a picture of is that. Is it like little liberty small. yeah Let's see how much five i was. I was close. Dsl are well no. It's not a dsl are. There's no mirren it you know. It's not a single l. Okay okay excuse me is a dsl body. That's what that's what it's called. It's a mirrorless camera And the viewfinder is oxymoronic. So yeah i'll for some reason was just i interchanged mirrorless with sort of point and shoot high end point and shoots which was a mistake. Well those are also maryland right. I didn't know about this inbetween interchangeable joint. So this is still i think they're kind of pro sumer model in four k for the body though. Wow this is still pro summer Territory you know. Then what is the advantage of mirrorless over an s. Are if you're going to pay four thousand dollars What's the advantage the advantage. It's lighter weight because there's mayor it's smaller more compact kenley lighter and smaller lighter and the main thing also is that you can have the lens physically because the ratio of the lens to to the film playing yes. There's no room for a mere. It doesn't need to have a mere to go up and down so the actual end of the lens is so close because your revenues like an inch and a half of moving nearly exactly that makes so much more sense. So how how is your focal length. Affected like what is the ratio compared like fifty millimeter prime on a thirty five millimeter. Dsl are what would the equivalent of the difference. Is that now with all the e af lenses that i have from cannon with my Dsl our cameras. I can use them with adapter but you can also get dedicated. Lenses which is called the like the are f line That is actually a lot smaller. So for example you see the leica cameras right. Yes you see. Even the fifty millimeter f point. Five or the f- point. One is tiny three quarters of exactly. Yeah yeah and the reason why is because it. It's so close to the actual film plane. The ratio of it doesn't need to be that big so interesting. Yeah yeah yeah. The reason why. For example my four hundred millimeter F to eight is so big is because it needs it. Just you know that's just the way. It is literally math. Yeah go physics but now when you look at the new lenses that are coming out dedicated for this camera. Their way smaller. How interesting ways. That i mean i gotta can i bum yours for like a couple of day could just come out with you the other. Yeah how about the next time we shoot together. You know you can check it out. We can you. Can you see my ferrari ferrari. Let's see if it's black. It's all black. That's not actually. It's probably good right. Because you can get with with the mirrorless can you get a richness and What what what am i think. What's the fucking word. Larry what you mean. Range thank you dynamic range yay to get to get blacks so the are five dynamic. Range is unbelievable for the size of the megapixel so the physical size of the pixel on the sensor is still pretty small. Because it's so packed in there right And then like for example with my normal cameras shooting with. That's not mirrorless the dsl ours the wendy x. mark three which we actually helped launch for cannon. That's got to feel pretty cool. How you have. Larry chen signature camera. Like that's kinda gotta be. Does anybody ever seen show camera ever had one. I don't know i've never heard of that before. But that would be extremely sick if you had a one. D x three the mark for whatever yeah and you got to a color scheme at a lens package and it had your signature like embossed vowed the jesus shit ever i. I would even know exactly like what extra specs would ask for this commanding a massive premium. I've i've told that canon engineers what i exactly want a camera and the sorts candidate marketing. Ken in marketing online. Because i think chan addition camera like a motor sports camera would be extremely sick. People would buy it dude. Magnus walker sold every one of those steering wheels. I fucking love. Magnus momo protei post stereo and there is nothing wrong with. The motorola protein was steering wheel with a double wrapped rim. That's a perfect steering wheel to use an air cooled porsches yeah you couldn't give me a magnus walker signed wheel and i love magnus. It's all of this to his face but he sold like five hundred of those steering wheels right..
"chen" Discussed on The Smoking Tire
"Know this is kind of a cool evolution of the we know drifting because how cool would it be just have like three four five identical cars. They're all two hundred horsepower and then they are driving inches away. That's another another thing you bring up identical cars. I think spectrum could be funny ca fun as well. i mean. i don't know if it necessarily we fun for the spectators but it would definitely be fun for the drivers being able to to see who was the best in this in exactly the same car. I mean but that's kind of the. That's the fun thing is you can do anything you know. There's no motor regulations. There is no chassis. Regulations is just safety. So what kind of folks are showing up to the grid life. Is it like the pro. Two guys that are doing it or is it. Like in all these one. I think forsberg. And turquoise gonna come and out but a lot of people in the local area as far as texas and atlanta. I think they're gonna show up to just try it out. This is going to be the first time they're going to do this. Which i'm really excited to to see. Well kristen his folks at grade. Life are really nice people and they're always trying to find new and interesting ways to make motor sport a little different and a little more interesting As well as to make it a good spectator sport for people who come. Is there any like a camping aspect of this one too or is it really just motorsport. I think so. I mean you know we actually worked together for the first time acrid life at ginger chasing drift cars. Yeah fifteen maybe yeah and you had to like a one of the two w yeah no tha- the year before that yeah yeah and That was actually the first time i was on your show. Yeah we did a fucking we do a podcast not just. The video just made a video chasing drift cars chasing cars and he was just kind of like a different subject. Yeah super fun. And just something that you traditionally just wouldn't do. It was fun because you sent me the finished pictures which then i kind of shudder snapped in right at the moments that they happen. That made it fun for me and also you were laughing like you know that and i think part of it is that when have you ever seen drifting that close. No don't you are. you're close your more. They've done it. I think whoever has taken up that mantle might have seen me doing that that year and has since replicated it but at the time now is about the closest i've ever been to from that angle. Well the thing about it is Par like the fact that gridlock allows for that. Is the big deal grid. Life is just is exactly what you said. It's a festival right and it's just a way for car guys to just relax. I feel and it's still car things going on. Yeah right a lot of times when you go to. These competitions can be stressful a little bit. You know it's it's it's actually you know people are actually pushing super hard there's We were getting mad at each other. Whatever agreed life. it's more just. Hey we're going out and driving and it's cool cars that show up from all over and there's the music aspect of it. Unfortunately this year you know they can't do that. Those are and the camping aspect of it. It's just a good time of. In general they worked better. Think at the ginger man and the smaller tracks like road. Atlanta was like too big and had too many rules. They wouldn't let us do some of the stuff that other smaller tracks would do. And it was the twice as many people they were spread out all these like nooks track. Ginger man like made a tent city and because of that it was like party. That's what i went to but it had a sense of like friends having the most fun to track that you could possibly do like it. Felt safe but it didn't feel restrained or boring or stuffy like it was just such a great combination of of time attack drifting play about it. You know the fact that you guys could chase those cars be close to like. Yeah these guys are smart. They know what they're doing. They're getting rad content and having a good time and everyone seems to have a good time and then the drivers can talk to all the fans. It's awesome it was good. What would that said my favorite video from good. That i shot was still when i handed you the camera in atlanta and we were going around in golf carts. They're like larry lost all control. Where like other people who stuffing takeovers were ridiculous. Yeah yes yes that's been on the show. Great steph is seriously. I i call him spiderman now because i don't know if you remember. He was jumping from roof of golf cart to golf cart. We were going downhill is out. You could probably radio or a grid life on youtube. We never mind. Yeah but anyways. I know it's a but if you guys have a chance to check it out just search grid. Life larry chen again golf carts yet. Golf golf cart go kart the gulf car and they think somebody within the organization in rhode atlanta specifically may have aided and abetted that. Because i do have a recollection that we stole the golf carts for that mayhem. Ginger men but it wrote atlanta someone lined them up and left them with the keys in them for us to like. Just find them. It was like twenty five or a lot of golf. golf carts. logoff was absolute mayhem. And you know that. That video. I i it was the whole party bullies thing. We would go from party to party. And then we would play flip cup at their area and then afterwards they would just smash the tables and destroy the smash you the tables over the i. I have a couple of those in that video it's hilarious. It's too much fun. Vikings you like. Oh my god came to see like we're drinking beer like great leave. We're out of all of our plastic tables are story. Yeah it was good. That was very very good time. I'm glad that video you could deduct all the expenses of that right that one off so yeah in terms of what we've been doing we've been shooting as much as we can and as the world is opening up an as Events are happening. You know where starting to tackle those and then now it's getting to the point where we're getting back to working with the manufacturers. Do this weird. I keep getting phone calls. And i'm such a fucking moron. I couldn't put it together until very recently. Gotten like several phone calls to come to private viewings of cars. And when i got the first one and it was for like the new maserati Sports car well. That's the thing. Yeah okay cool but then it was like would you like to come see the new civic and i'm like why am i. I called the person back. And i was like. Is this a driving thing. And he was like no no. It's just to see it and i was like. Is this a like it's because i guess because there's no l. a. auto show right. So they're doing. They're doing this instead of the la auto show. So i'm probably get like lots of calls from people about coming to see lots of random cars in like individuals show rooms around la suck. I think i've seen some journalists. They get like a house. A porsche was doing so porsche rather than flying journalists around. They would rent a house and they'd have to press cars and two journalists at a time would come in to like a mostly empty living room and sit across the living room for each other with masks on and watch a zoom tech presentation..
"chen" Discussed on Sean Carroll's Mindscape: Science, Society, Philosophy, Culture, Arts, and Ideas
"I'm your host Sean Carroll. We live in a world where there's increasing understanding of an hopefully acceptance of different varieties of sexuality and gender orientation and expressing not just the usual boy and girl getting together getting married having two a half kids. We're increasingly happy with homosexuality with. Hopefully transgender people are being more and more accepted as time goes on although we're certainly not there yet. So what about ASEXUALITY? What about people who do not foreground sexual desire in their lives in the way that everybody else does this is an idea that most of us have heard of, but maybe are not too familiar with asexuality. It turns out can a wide variety of manifestations from people who are very romantic and even have fulfilling sexual relationships with their partners to people who are completely repulsed by the idea of having sex, and it's interesting not just to understand those people and their needs and how they can flourish in this world. But how the rest of US when we're telling stories or organizing society more broadly take for granted the idea that whatever your sexual orientation is sex is something that you will want to have, and it'll be a success story when it's going well for you. So today's guest is Angela Chen she is a science journalist and she is a sexual herself or ace as they say in the business and he's ruining a new book about this called Ace. What asexuality reveals about desires society, and the meaning of sex is interesting if nothing else just to reflect on the centrality of the idea of sex in our lives and how we think about our lives. So I like that just the idea that. Coining a term right adding some vocabulary to the way that we conceptualize the world changes the way we think about an important way and a sexuality is an example of that. But I think the lessons here are broader. So let's go. Angela.

"You're listening to own Queen as that like to dance like in danger David. Yeah and apple looking at you first of all a real conversation on career. Family relationships in office monoculture. And thanks so much for tuning in for this week's episode. Hope you're doing well and hydrating and sleeping Wallenstein healthy as much as possible We are still in the middle of the corona virus pandemic and in the age of cove in nineteen and in light of that I am now basically using my intros to plug certain agenda items if you will. I'm getting into like my director mode But I am really excited to introduce this episode that I have with my friend Dr Chen Fu who is an attending physician out in New York City and was recently featured in Time magazine But before we get to that I do take care of some housekeeping items. That hopefully will be helpful to all the listeners out there and helpful to those who need our help the most right now so before we get into this episode on Everyday Heroes This is where you can be the hero and do your part because we are still in the age of Covet nineteen and not having any certainty of when this will be quote unquote over or if we will just have to figure out how to navigate different waves of addressing this pandemic moving forward for an unknown amount of time. I really WANNA encourage everybody to continue social distancing. I don't know if people are paying attention to the news or what. Your new source is or staying away from it because of mental health reasons But there are signs that social distancing is having a significant impact on slowing down the number of cases and it is doing a very important job in not overwhelming our current healthcare providers and not overwhelming a hospitals and all the supplies and the ventilators and every medication that is needed in order to heal and Just take care of those who are currently impacted and Diagnosed with covert nineteen. So thank you to everybody. Who's been staying vigilant? And doing the thing by social distancing by staying vigilant about handwashing Checking in on each other With loved ones and practicing that self care because honestly it is the cliche. That's GonNa be proven scientifically to be the most effective thing right now. Which is taking care of yourself is the best way to take care of others so everyone. Who's staying discipline and staying away from Each Other? Thank you you guys are doing. The thing sending you huge hugs and lots of encouragement and know that it's not easy There are people who are going through different waves of emotions and dealing with cabin fever feeling lonely and isolated and it is not easy. I'm not saying that is but it is important and so for everyone. Who's been doing that? Thank you thank you. Thank you thank I also want to recommend and share the recommendation from the CDC and from other health organizations around the world that Wearing personal protection equipment. P P is important at this point that if you're gonNA go outside and you're GONNA go shopping or run errands or whatever whenever you vitally need To wear a personal mask and to make that a priority so that You are not subjecting yourself to getting Corona virus or getting other people sick because there are tons of asymmetric people who are spreading the virus and so asymmetric means. You are not showing any symptoms. Okay is just clarification. You don't have to be coughing. We're having shortness of breath or even feeling ill at all to have it and to be able to spread it These the virus can live on hard surfaces. It can you know. There's a lot of ways for this to spread suggest be careful. It's not to spread panic again. But we need to be informed and we need to be very knowledgeable and educated about how this moves and how we need to interact with the world to prevent ourselves from getting sick and prevent others from getting sick See please do your part and Get that personal p. There are mass that you can actually make at home. There are so many tutorials that are circulating. It's incredible and the creative side of me I'd love people and how Personal and positive people are being about this whole situation. It's making lemonade out of lemons and getting creative using old t shirts. You can use handkerchiefs. You can use so many different Items you don't have to be knowledgeable about how to use a sewing machine or using an even a needle in a thread there are versions. That are diy that just need fabric and scissors and you can literally create a mask for yourself Without having to so anything at all so if you feel intimidated and you feel limited in your ability to make a mask fret not Google it. Youtube it instagram. And you'll find a tutorial and please do your part I'm in Los Angeles. I did go grocery shopping the other day and I did see about a third of the people. Maybe like a quarter of the people. Not Wearing masks. So we need to be reminding others and encouraging others and educating others on the importance of this and You know hold back on the condemnation. Maybe they just don't know maybe they haven't heard the news neither understand how serious it is but we do need to keep each other accountable and find a way to communicate that out to the world that They need to be having this practice. Okay this is for all of our betterment. It's the fastest way that we can slow this down nip in the bud and wait it out so that we can have some semblance of a strategy on how to get back to normal like literally the longer that we can hold out and be safe and be healthy and give time for scientists to figure out what to do scientists 'em leadership To figure out what to do so that we can actually implement something that will work and get us back out into our jobs out into public spaces again. This is what we gotta do. And so every person matters. There's get science behind how one person can impact and effect and in fact a lot of different people. So do your part We're all in this together. I've had varying levels of emotional outbursts on this podcast today clearly in a little bit more of a calm mind but it is really serious and so I'm not going to pull back on that I'm holding all y'all accountable because if you're listening to this podcast clearly you're wildly intelligent and you care a lot about humanity or at least. I hope that you do and I hope. That's what you get out of this podcast. So please do Massad beyond the team the collective humanity team and help help our brothers and sisters and everybody out okay. also on the P. notes there are still shortages. I this virus at least in America. I'm in the United States but I mean this is going to continue to spread in different pockets in different outbursts all over the world but people are facing different P P shortages. I know that there's a lot of strategizing on manufacturing and distribution. I know that California were I. Live has kind of taken matters into their own hands and ordered millions of people just to make sure their That their healthcare workers and frontline workers have what they need Because clearly there's a lot of disorganization and just madness going on at the federal level in the United States. And so if you find yourself in a place or country That is facing the same disorganization or the same shortage of supplies. Please take a second and just google what you can do again. I'm not promoting Google just search online. Use the Internet. Talk to a friend and figure out where you can help out because People are really stepping up and donating. Whatever and ninety five mask whatever surgical masks? They have on hand and sorry. I should have mentioned this earlier. But P P is personal protection equipment and that means that it is Referring to end ninety five respirator mask. Surgical mask hand. Sanitizer face shields and protective gowns. These are the frontline workers barrier between them and the sickness between all the patients that they're interacting with the really need this they to dispose of them. They need to sanitize them sometimes. They're reusing things that are not supposed to be reusable but they need something rather than nothing so as much as we can help out in the front line workers having the proper people to take care of all these patients. We need to do our part the website that I used to donate my leftover and ninety five respirator mask and leftover surgical mask. I didn't need I sent through a website called mask hyphen. Match DOT COM I was matched through filling out a survey that took me only a couple of minutes to fill out that Supply of mass. I had was sent to somebody in Nevada who needed my mask so I was matched. I sent it out. It was easy. It was quick They have a whole text. Messaging thing to verify. All this stuff is really great super organized. Very grateful and I'm seeing more People like on instagram verifying that their donations were matched as well and received by actual people. So it's really really awesome to see that those efforts are making an impact. It's you know I. I had thirty something mass leftovers. I'm so glad that can be used for somebody who really needs it. And in the meantime I'll make my t shirt bask while I wait for my PCP that I actually ordered from other companies so If you wherever you are and you want to donate Contactor local hospital or your health department not recommended at least states by the American Medical Association and There's more information at get us. P P DOT ORG With actual instructions from health workers and that has specifications for the items that they need the most and how to get them to donation sites and you can search that website by region and state gets get. Us p. p. e. Dot Org and you can get more information in. That's for the United States. And if you're in another country listening to this you know find out where your local Receive like there's going to be other organizations set up to handle donations as well so again if everybody does a little bit. It makes a huge difference. Oh please do not remove yourself from that equation and do whatever you can okay even if it's just sharing it on social media. I'm doing whatever I can't use this platform and my podcast and my voice and my instagram to shed light and to spread the word because my other friends are are spreading the word and it's absolutely inspiring an incredible so shout out to all the everyday heroes. You guys are heroes honestly. Thank you for informing me and helping me Get the word out. And you're GONNA do your part. It's amazing it's teamwork and I'm tagging you right now so tag. You're it. This is instead of me tagging on instagram. Because I don't have your handle okay But yes so. That's in terms of the P. p. e. the logistics of helping out frontline workers. I have mentioned this in previous episodes and this is literally the theme of the conversation that you're about to listen to with My friend Chen but these frontline workers are going through hell at the moment They're overwhelmed. They're dealing with massively sick people. They're having to make really hard decisions and they just need our love and support they are they are warriors they are the one there are the ones that battle right now. So as much as we're holding down the fort and battling crow virus in our own ways They're really in the thick of it. So let's do whatever we can to support them. Yeah cool thank you I also wanted to mention the caveat of like how I have approached my tone and my delivery of everything that's been going on obviously putting out a lot of content the last couple of weeks and having.

"Members of the press curious neighbors and the garland police all had the same question on their minds. What would Chen do now? His Prophecy had failed spectacularly twenty five minutes after midnight. They got their answer. Just as the police were preparing to storm chance house he emerged unruffled and Serene Charles. Houston PREY THEIR SET. The scene in his paper God Salvation Church past present and future according to him chance spoke through his translator. Richard Loo saying even though God's image was not captured on television. I want everyone to believe that God is alive then. Chen told the press police and neighbors that they were free to consider his prior statements about God appearing on channel eighteen complete nonsense right after dismissing the validity of his March Twenty Fifth Prophecy. Chen held up pictures of airplane. Contrails and said in these months there have been so many flying crafts in the sky flying over our head. We don't have any reason to suspect they might be aircraft from the United States Air Force. I must stay here to research what we have witnessed in the pictures. The reporters were confused by this change in direction. What about his second prophecy? Did he still believe God would appear in a form identical to his own and perform miracles on March thirty? First Chen responded. It has become insignificant to discuss whether God will show up on March thirty first since the prophecy concerning today's program was not realized. The reporters refused to accept his evasive answer. They kept pressing until Chen finally said because we did not see God's message on channel eighteen tonight. My predictions of God. Arriving on March thirty first can be considered nonsense the reporters then ask channel. He considered himself a false prophet. Chen's response was unprecedented. He said I've never referred to myself as a prophet. In fact I would recommend that nobody believe what I said any more. The members of Cento stood around their spiritual leader as he spoke. They had sacrificed their jobs families and their home country all because of chance prophecies now. He blithely recommended that nobody ever take him seriously again. Despite this the cult members said nothing in the moment. Their faces remained expressionless as though remembering the presence of his followers for the first time Chen conceded that they had made significant financial sacrifices to follow him to that end he said I personally take responsibility to support them for the period. They were unemployed. Despite this promise Chen provided no elaboration about what form his supposed restitution will take instead. He absorbed himself further saying my followers have always enjoyed their individual freedom. Tomorrow they have the freedom to go wherever they want with that parting statement. Chen called the press conference to a close in contrast to the days leading up to the first prophecy the days leading up to the March thirty first prophecy. We're fairly quiet though. Chen told everyone to consider his words. Nonsense there was still a sense of anticipation in the air as the date approached especially among chance followers some members of Chen. Tau still believed that. Jesus Christ would appear in a form. Identical to Chen's they believed this Chen Christ hybrid would then duplicate himself Multiple Times. Walk through walls and speak all of the world's languages at will on March twenty seventh Chen set out a press. Release titled You Yourself. Are God in it. He wrote in truth. Human soul and conscience are homogeneous to the structure of God's character therefore seek the perfection of conscience in your soul. God will help you become God on the morning of March thirty first the police again. Coordoned-off Chen's Garland neighborhood for the second time. The press city approved credentials at the ready took their battle stations. In front of Chen's house this time even Chen's neighbors joined the fray gathering around his home to neighbors. Even when as far as to done alien costumes together they all waited for the prophesied our of ten. Am a few minutes before the clock struck ten. Chen walked out of his house through his translator. Richard Loo. He asked all the gathered to shake their own hand. Confused members of the press. The police and chance neighbors all complied each of them using one hand to shake their other. Chen then smiled Typically and told them that since they themselves were God then obviously God had duplicated himself Multiple Times. They adjust witnessed it. Each of them had shaken their own hands if they needed more proof. Chen implored them to consider the fact that each of them could speak and understand their own respective languages thus God was multi lingual God was on earth shaking hands and speaking languages so his prophecy was fulfilled. Still the press remain unconvinced so Chen decided to perform a demonstration that would prove his godly nature once and for all he decided to stare directly at the sun for a painfully awkward. Couple of minutes. Chen stared at the sky blinking rapidly. His eyes watering then. He triumphantly declared that no mere mortal could have stared at the sun like that without ill effect despite the embarrassing display when the reporters asked his followers if they would continue to dedicate their lives to Chen all of them raise their hands and shouted affirmatively in unison. Despite his failed prophecies they still trusted and believed in Chen. Their unwavering faith is not out of the ordinary and cults with. Doomsday predictions in his book. When prophecy fails social psychologist? Leon festinger called this phenomenon dissonance reduction. He explained that cult numbers will often deal with the dissonance of a failed prediction by doubling down and rededicating themselves to the cause. Chen's followers no doubt had similar feelings. They had sacrificed their jobs their relationships and the only lives they had ever known all to follow Chen. They likely felt it was too late to turn back now. Shortly after the March thirty first press conference Chen had another vision. This time God told him to go to Ole Cotton New York according to Charles Houston. Pray there's paper. Chen claimed that all caught was actually the place where God would transfer people from the third dimension to the fourth. The fact that going to all caught would also allow him to leave behind the humiliation of his failed. Prophecies was Shirley just a convenient bonus the move from garland to old cod. Cut Chen's following by two thirds. The decline was due in part to growing disillusionment among his members but the bulk of the losses were caused by visa problems. All of the members of Chen Ta were Taiwanese consequently they were unable to remain in the United States on tourist visas indefinitely so on May Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety eight when forty three year old. Chen made the move from garland all caught. He was accompanied by only thirty five members over the next year. He made two more prophecies. Both of which failed not much was heard from the group. After nineteen ninety nine the bulk of the media frenzy surrounding Chen. Tau died after the failed March. Thirty first prophecy however we do know that Chen had a falling out with a high ranking members of the group in two thousand two. It's unclear whether he's currently dead or alive as Chen is never been heard from since despite his anti-climactic end Han. Ming Chen was an atypical cult. Leader there's no evidence he financially or sexually exploited his followers instead he convinced them to search for an Abraham Lincoln. Look like and ask them to spend hours staring at the clouds perhaps more than anything. Chen was driven by desire to find a family to keep it. He was willing to do anything even promise. Miracles and create false. Hope that a wondrous world was waiting somewhere deep within the clouds..

"Trepidation. According to Charles Houston Pray. Ther- Chen and the rest of his Taiwanese followers walked around. There Texan neighborhood in White Cowboy. Hats white sweatsuits and white sneakers. Chen stated that they wore white because God would be clothed in white when he appeared as for the cowboy hats. Chen claimed they helped. The group fit in in their coordinated outfits. Chen and his followers road bikes around their call to sack dropping off flyers at each door they passed according to an article published in fourteen times. The flyers explained that the bike rides were instructed by God to prepare for the descending of his kingdom in America given the polite tone of the flyers the neighbors who received them weren't bothered however not all of Chen's neighbors were accommodating as described by Charles. Houston pray there. In late December of Nineteen ninety-seven a neighbor complained to Garland code enforcement. That one of the Garland homes owned by the group was legally overcrowded. This was because after buying several homes all at once. Some chantelle members had to bunk with others while waiting for new houses to go on the market in response to the complaint. Chen ordered a reshuffling of members between houses so that no one domicile could be classified as legally overcrowded however as soon as Chen responded to this request another complaint was lodged. This time by Chen's next door neighbor Charles. Amex had no tolerance for the time when he's cult leader next door so when he spied Chen and his followers carting cement towards chance backyard. Charles went to investigate later. City of Garland official. Dale Smith received an anonymous tip. That Chen was building a spaceship landing pad in his backyard. Law Enforcement looked into the allegations however on questioning Chen. They learned that he wasn't building a landing site. He was building a Gazebo. But that wasn't all Chen was up to in early. Nineteen Ninety eight forty three year old Chen Self published his second book. Titled God's Descending and Clouds flying saucers on earth to save people in this book. He not only prophesied the manner of God's arrival. This time he also included a date up next Han. Ming Chen Prepares for God's arrival on Earth. Now back to the story in early. Nineteen Ninety eight soon. After moving to Garland Texas forty-three-year-old Ming Chen Self published his second religious text in at he prophesied God's arrival on Earth. Chen guaranteed on his life. That the events would transpire exactly as he described. Chen wrote that. God would appear on the television airwaves of channel eighteen across North America at twelve o one. Am On March Twenty Fifth Nineteen Ninety Eight. It didn't seem to matter to Chen that what program was broadcast on channel eighteen varied from state to State Popular Ninety S. Tv show friends might have had to adhere to the whims of network programmers. But did not God would show up as he liked on chatter late teens across America. Chen prophesied that God would announce his earthly arrival on the TV broadcast. He planned to appear in Corporeal Form On march thirty first why God needed to warn. The world via television broadcast of his coming arrival remained unclear. Nevertheless Chen explain that on March. Thirty First Nineteen Ninety eight at ten. Am God would appear in human form in Garland Texas? Chen claim that God would look identical to himself. According to Chen upon appearing this God Chen hybrid would walk through walls replicate himself multiple times so he could greet everyone simultaneously and would be capable of speaking every language in the world. It's possible Chen didn't truly believe in what he was saying. While it's unclear why. Chen made these predictions. He might have again felt that he owed his followers. Miracles in exchange for their continued companionship. Maybe Chen felt that without the promise of miracles. His followers would leave him as his parents had. Chen disseminated his new book widely across Garland in the aftermath of Heaven's Gate. Any news involving UFO cults was a hot property. Thus Chen's prophecies of God descending on a small Texas suburb set off a media circus Ryan Cook covered the frenzy in an article for the Center for Studies on new religions. He wrote that in the days leading up to March twenty fifth of Visible Coterie of outsiders descended on Garland. These people weren't restricted. Journalists from New York and Hong Kong among the arrivals were anti cultists academics and one stray satanist in response to the interest. Chen welcomed reporters into his backyard. He showed them. The various religious implements enshrines. His followers had built over the past couple of months. He even allowed reporters to take pictures of his Gazebo. Chen claim these photos had religious power. And anyone who placed one close to their heart would feel the effects of the Holy Spirit early. On Tuesday march twenty fourth the members of Chen Tau waited into the creek behind Chen's house and performed a baptism like ritual then guided by Chen. The male members of the group shaved their heads. This coordinated group activity was too reminiscent of Heaven's Gate for comfort. The garland police went door to door asking cult members. What they plan to do with God failed to show on TV. Did they plan on committing suicide? Despite the cult members denials the garland police wanted to reassure the township and called a press conference during the conference. The police stated their commitment to preventing a coordinated suicide effort. They promised that when the prophecy inevitably failed they would knock on. Chen's door if he refused to answer they would four century to ensure no cult members. Were being harmed Charles. Houston pray ther- estimated that on the afternoon of March Twenty Fourth. The police mobilized between fifty and seventy officers and emergency personnel to make sure events would proceed safely. The even enlisted the help of the neighboring Dallas Police Department to bulk up their numbers reporters soon swarmed the area too and set up camp right outside. Chen's home this gave them a front row seat at eleven. Pm when all the cult members filed out of Chen's house then on prompting from Chen they chanted prayers in Mandarin and bowed toward his Gazebo. Ritual concluded they returned inside finally after days of built up. The prophesied our was Ni- everyone in Garland.

"King Satan's were fallen angels. Who were responsible for the world's great tribulations? According to Chen these tribulations always climaxed in a nuclear holocaust. Despite the fact that there hadn't been a recorded nuclear holocaust by the time he published his book in Nineteen ninety-six Chen claimed the King Satan's had brought about four tribulations throughout history for nuclear holocausts even more alarming. Chen prophesied that the next tribulation was imminent. However Chen assured his followers they need not be afraid after all true believers had survived each of the past four tribulations. God had rescued them in his flying saucer a contraption that Chen also called a God plane after being ferried off in God planes. True believers waited out the effects of nuclear radiation on another planet like Mars wants. All the radiation had dissipated. They returned to Earth. It's unclear whether this return journey was also conducted by the God plane. Nevertheless Chen's followers were sold Chen. Promise that if they adhered to his teachings and followed him then when the coming nuclear Holocaust occurred they could count on a seat. In God's flying saucer Chen soon coaxed his followers into being totally dependent on him for their salvation. He warned them that he was one of the only teachers that they could trust. Despite initially reading Christian and Buddhist texts in his search for meaning by the time Chen wrote his own book he had only kostic things to say about both religions. He claimed that ninety nine percent of the Buddhist temples in Taiwan were led by vampiric outside spirits. Furthermore Chen stated that the Bible was written in part by Kings. Satan's for that reason. His followers needed him to clarify. What parts of the Bible were devil? Words it's possible. Chen fostered his followers dependence on him because he truly believed he was their best chance for escape from the imminent tribulation but it's more probable that. Chen dissuaded them from seeking other teachers because he feared losing his new community one which was growing number every day by nineteen ninety seven forty two year old chant had amassed thousands of followers commensurate with his newest steamed. Status Chen changed the name of his group. From the Soul Light Resurgence Association to Chen Tau which translates to true way. Chance doctrine altered slightly to he suddenly began preaching that the only pure land of refuge lay in North America. He told his followers that in order for them to survive the coming Holocaust they needed to relocate from Taiwan to San Dimas California a northeastern suburb of Los Angeles County. So in nineteen ninety seven Chen and a little over a hundred followers set out for the Golden State.

The followers who flocked to his church where well paid professionals with several academics engineers and doctors among the ranks they will likely drawn to Chen because they view Tim as a similarly well educated authority on religion who was well-spoken and had done his research to grow the fledgeling movement. Chen urged his most faithful followers to travel to different cities in Taiwan and open satellite churches by nineteen ninety six four. Sla churches had been established across Taiwan that year Chen also self published his first book the practical evidence and study of the world of God and Buddha the thome outlined major beliefs including the idea that all living beings originated in central vortex after coming into existence. They passed into the material realm where they took the form of humans. Animals Angels or devils Chen preached that humans and animals possessed three souls the physical soul which dwelled in the body the conscious soul which resided in the mind and the main spiritual light according to Chen the level of spiritual light a being achieved determined. What form they'd take upon being reincarnated if a person increased their spiritual light during their time on earth they would be able to escape karmic reincarnation. This meant achieving enlightenment. A state of being Chen also called Buddha Hood but despite this absorption of some Buddhist theology chance beliefs straight away from traditional Buddhism in several key ways for example Chen preached that there were two major obstacles which prevented human beings from increasing their spiritual light. These obstacles were outside souls and devils outside. Seoul's where people who suffered of violent or unexpected death their macabre ending caused him to get lost on the way to the underworld thus dooming them to remain. Outside the reincarnation cycle forever these lost souls subsisted by draining human beings of their spiritual light. This concept of -Em Pyrrhic. Lonely ghosts is based on Taiwanese folklore. It's possible that Chen borrowed this aspect of his belief system from bedtime stories in his childhood. This law may have been especially impactful on him considering the sudden unexpected deaths of his parents. The next obstacle preventing people from achieving Buddha Hood are devils. According to Chen's book devil sought to possess beings to increase the level of evil in the world. Chen called the worst of these devils king. Satan's.

Wherever you're listening. It really does help this week in a one part episode. We're taking a deep dive into the Taiwanese. Ufo Cult founded by former college professor. Han Ming Chen. The cult went by many names. The True Way God's Salvation Church and the thoroughly descriptive moniker. The God saves the Earth Flying Saucer Foundation Peng Ming Chen followers clung to him because they believed he could save them from an imminent nuclear apocalypse instead he led them on a wild goose chase that involves searching for an Abraham Lincoln look like in Canada interpreting clouds and waiting for God to make his nationally televised debut. Han Ming Chen was born on April. Twenty second nineteen fifty five in Shah e a small town in southwestern Taiwan. His father worked as a merchant while his mother stayed at home to care for him. Unfortunately both of Chen's parents when he was young. His mother was the first to pass after suffering a stroke. His father died just a few years. Later Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg. According to James Wolfson a clinical psychologist losing apparent. At a young age quote causes a person's sense of security and safety to be disrupted this disruption in one's formative years might later manifest as depression anxiety or perhaps a desire for certainty and control. What occurred between chance? Childhood and his college years is unclear but it is clear that his parents death had a profound impact on him though he was raised as a Buddhist at some point between his parents death and his enrollment in university Chen began identifying as an atheist perhaps the loss of both parents in quick succession caused him to lose faith. Chen graduated with a bachelor's degree in political science and went on to get a master's in social science. The discipline may have attracted Chan because it gave order to society. According to strict controlled parameters this type of certainty is likely what he craved after the loss of his parents Chen excelled in his studies in one thousand nine hundred three. When he was twenty-eight years old he got a job as an associate professor at Chapman Junior College. He stayed at the school for almost a decade then in nineteen ninety-two despite identifying as an atheist for the entirety of his adult life thirty seven year old Chen had his first religious revelation. While working one day he claims that he suddenly heard a voice in his head imploring him to pursue a religious life just might the vagueness of the instruction. Chen took to it eagerly. He poured over religious tax of all kinds. He devoured the Buddhist Sutras and the Dow de Ching he even read the Christian Bibles old and new testaments after all of his arduous research chain decided that the best course of action was to join a UFO cult. Though Chen claimed he sought out religion because of divine intervention. He could have been driven by something else. When Chen had his revelation at the age of thirty seven he was not only an orphan but he also had no wife or kids of his own. It's possible his search for religious community or a family was spurred by loneliness. A study conducted by social cognition expert. Nicholas Epilepsy bolsters this hypothesis. His research showed that lonely people are more likely to believe in God and seek out new social connections if social connection was which was looking for he founded in the UFO cult led by Ms Yu-chen no relation by the time.

Chen decided misuse. Fees were predatory and immoral. According to a paper written by Academic Charles Houston pray ther- Chen then concluded that issue was a heavenly devil inhuman guys after telling her as much. He broke with the group but Chan wasn't ready to quit spirituality entirely he didn't want to give up his new community so he absconded from misused group with around a dozen of her followers. Chen co-opted them as well. As several aspects of misused theology and formed his own religious movement called the Soul Light Resurgence Association or S. L. A. Two houses followers. He opened a church in Tainan.
