Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai charged under security law

"Citizens, Jimmy Lai. Lai. Has Has been been charged charged with with endangering endangering Chinese Chinese national national security. security. The The businessman businessman and and media media million million billionaire billionaire who's who's in in prison prison in in Hong Hong Kong Kong at at the the moment, moment, is is the the most most high high profile person to be charged under sweeping new law covering conspiring with foreign forces. And carrying a maximum life sentence. Antony DAP. Iran is a lawyer and writer in Hong Kong who spells out what these charges against Mr Lai mean for the direction of Chinese rule in Hong Kong. He's being charged with colluding with foreign forces under the National security law. It's very significant given that Jimmy Lai is such a high profile figure among of the pro democracy parties in Hong Kong. But it's not surprising. It's always expected that he would be one of the key targets under the law after it was introduced. What sorts of things has, he said about Beijing that have obviously cause such a fence. Well, he has bean very public in calling for sanctions to be imposed on both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments in retaliation for their actions here in Hong Kong, and that is specifically under the law constitute the the act of colluding with foreign forces. And so that's the the the actions that we expect that has got him into trouble This time. It's quite a sweeping law, isn't it? And he's not the first to fall foul of it. That's right. It is a very broad law drafted in such a wide way that it can catch all sorts of act. Devotees are so far there have been four people arrested and charged under the law. None of those cases have yet worked their way through the court system. So we don't yet know how Hongkong's judges are going to define the parameters off this law, but it's certainly potentially could be very broad. Reaching indeed. Can you tell us about the case of a teenage activist called Tony Cheung? Yes, Tony chill has been charged under the National security law for inciting succession and subversion. And this is in relation to social media posts that he's alleged to have made with messages of diligently promoting Hong Kong independence or subverting the government. He's also being charged with it with a number of other offenses, including just today he was convicted off. Desecrating the national flag for snatching a Chinese flag off a pro Beijing demonstrator at a protest. He's also facing other charges resulting from his various protest activities. How successful a warning shot Against other protesters. Do you think that these actions are, it's certainly likely to be very intimidating to other protesters and and pro democracy activists in Hong Kong. This is all part of a much broader campaign by the authorities here to crack down on all forms of dissent, and that has included, of course, arrests under the National Security law and under other Hong Kong laws. It's also included the disqualification of legislators the intimidation of the media a crackdown on the education system. All of this really designed to silence any form of dissent here in Hong Kong, and it certainly is having an effect in terms of intimidating people. I think you've described what's going on in Hong Kong in the moment as CAFTA esque. Maybe you could explain what you mean for those who might not be familiar with the works of France, CAFTA Yes. I mean, what we're seeing in Hong Kong isn't often arbitrary Use off state power or the use of the state and the Lauren and I about predictable and inconsistent ways. And you really see it in the way that the government challenges these pro democracy activists and protesters with all sorts of legal charges, often it being unclear exactly what the behavior is that they're being charged with. So I think for many of the pro democracy community here, it feels a little like they are lost in a sort of Casca narrative, not Quite sure when the Lord is going to to swept upon them. Clearly, Beijing thinks it can do things like charge. Businessman Jimmy Lie with impunity is that the case is standing up for Hong Kong falling down the list of priorities for Western governments. It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that. Antony Dappy ran in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, a reporter working for the American news agency Bloomberg has been detained by the authorities in China. Hayes fan who's a Chinese national hasn't been in contact with her employers for four days now. Robin Brent is the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai and asked him what more we knew about her detention. Well, the truth is not much or we have is the details coming from the American news agency Bloomberg, which were released late today, on Friday, China Time Now they say they last heard from her in a conversation with her editors before lunch on Monday. They haven't heard from her since. But shortly after that conversation, she was seen being escorted from her apartment in Beijing by blankly. Those police officers and in the intervening four days, Bloomberg say they've been in touch with the government here. They've been in touch with the Chinese Embassy in the United States because hes Fanny's a Chinese national on itwas on Thursday when they discovered confirmation that she had been detained. She had been taken and she was being questioned in relation to allegations off breaching national security and the Chinese authorities have recent form. Don't they were foreign journalists are concerned Australian journalists flown out of China recently. American journalists not having their press cards renewed. Yes, I mean, you know, we could have ah, much more longer and detailed conversation about whether that how this fits in with the diplomatic hostilities between the United States and China. Between China on Australia and the Chinese government's use of its very ambiguous national security law to target people to target journalists for things other than genuine allegations off breaching the law, But look a Chinese born Australian journalists Chen Lei, who worked for the state run TV CT TN station, She was detained several months ago in similar circumstances. She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming. There is some continuation that this may be linked to that, but we just don't know the evacuation as it was off to journalists. Australian journalists a couple of months ago linked to Chang Le's detention Pretty much ended Australia's ability to report from this country. Certainly when it comes to TV, anyway. Yesterday as well was the two year anniversary to the day off the detention on Don't going detention off two Canadians Michael Coverage of Michael's favor. One of businessmen want a former diplomat, two men who were detained by China in China. In the days following the arrest of a very high profile Kuala Way telecom company executive in Canada. So look, it's seen on used frankly, by the Chinese as a tool is a tactic off diplomacy, but I have to say We don't know any details about Hayes fans detention why she's being detained how she was detained where she's being detained because the Chinese authorities are not saying so. They're simply confirming that they have her. What does it say, though about the state of Open reporting in China, particularly by foreign nationals, the foreign correspondent's Club of China Says. It's very alarmed, for instance. Yeah, but it's hard here. It's hard for foreign nationals that believe me. It's even harder for Chinese nationals. Hayes fan is a Chinese national. She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance. But that is a huge understatement of what they do. I have a Chinese colleague who is my new system and she is absolutely vital to our operation here in Shanghai. That was Robin Brent, who's the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai.

"So luckily in my own experience i realized that when it comes to speaking up the action tends to be pretty straightforward in most cases but the hard part is really deciding whether to act or not. So how do we frame our decisions in a way that makes it easier easier for us to act and produce more ethical outcomes so ucla uc san. Diego come came up with this framework called the three cs and it's called commitment. Consciousness in competency and commitment is the desire to do the right thing regardless of the cost in my case that there their knows. If i was wrong. I was going to have to pay the consequences but if i was right the fact that i could have been a person that knew what was going on in. Didn't say something. That was purgatory. Being silent was purgatory. There's consciousness though awareness to act consistently and apply moral convictions to daily behavior behavior and the third aspect is Incompetency is the ability to collect and evaluate information and for see potential consequences in risk. In the reason i could trust. My competency was because i was acting in service of others. So i think a simple process is really taking those actions in imagining. If this happened to my children to my parents to my spouse to my neighbors to my community if i took that how will it be remembered in with that. I hope as we all venture off to build our own moon shots. We don't just conceptualize them in a way as a means for people to survive but really see them as opportunities in chances for everybody to thrive. Thank you ted.

Theranos, whistleblowing and speaking truth to power

"So i had graduated seven years ago from berkeley with the dual degree in molecular and cell biology and linguistics. And i had gone to a career fair here on campus had gotten an interview with the startup called thanos and at the time. There wasn't really that much information about the company but the little that was there was really impressive. Essentially what the company was doing was creating a medical device where you would be able to run your entire blood pam panel on a finger stick blood. She wouldn't have to get a big needle stuck in your harm in order to get your blood tests done so this was interesting not only because it was less painful but also it could potentially open the door to predictive diagnostics. If you had a device that allowed for more frequent and continuous diagnosis potentially you could diagnose disease before someone got sick and this was confirmed in an interview that the founder elizabeth holmes had said in the wall street journal. You know the reality within our healthcare system today. Is that when someone you care about gets really sick by the time you found out. It's too late to do anything about it. And it's heartbreaking. This was a moonshot. That i really wanted to be a part of and i really wanted to help bills and there was another reason why i think the story of elizabeth really appealed to me so there was a time that someone had said to me. Erica there are two types of people. There are those that thrive in those that. Survive in you my dear our survivor. Before i went to university. I had grown up in a one bedroom trailer with six family members. And when i told people i wanted to go to berkeley they would say well. I want to be an astronaut. So good luck. And i stuck with it and i worked hard. I managed to get in honestly. My first year was very challenging. I was the victim of a series of crimes. I was robbed at gunpoint. I was sexually assaulted. And i was sexually assaulted at third time. Spring on very severe panic attacks where it was failing my classes and dropped out school and at this moment people had said to me erica. Maybe you're not cut out for the sciences. Maybe you should reconsider doing something else. And i told myself you know what if i don't make the cut i don't make the cut but i cannot give up myself and i'm going to go for this and even if i'm not the best for it i'm going to try to make it happen and luckily i stuck with it and i got the degree and i graduated. So when i heard elizabeth holmes had dropped out of stanford at age nineteen to start this company and it was being quite successful to me. It was a signal of you know. Didn't matter what your background was. As long as you committed hard work and intelligence that was enough to make an impact on the world. And this was something for me personally that i had to believe in my life because it was one of the few anchors that i had had that. Got me through the day. So you can imagine when i thought about theranos. I really anticipated that. This would be the first and last company that i was going to work for. This was finally my opportunity to contribute to society to solve the problems that i had seen in the world but i started to note some problems so i started off as an entry level associate and the lab and we would be sitting in a lab meeting reviewing data to confirm whether the technology worked or not. And someone would say to me. Well let's get rid of the outlier and see how that affects the accuracy rate. So what constitutes outlier here. Which one is the outlier in the answer. Is you have no. You don't know right. In deleting a data point is really violating one of the things that i found so beautiful about the scientific process which it really allows the data to reveal the truth to you and as tempting as it might be in certain scenarios to place your story on the data to confirm your own narrative when you do this has really bad future consequences so this to me was almost immediately a red flag in a kind of folded into the next experience and the next red flag that i started to see within the clinical laboratory so clinical laboratory is where you actively process patient samples and so before. I would run a patient sample. I would have a sample where i knew what the concentration was. And in this case it was point to for tps psa which is an indicator of whether someone has prostate cancer or is at risk of prostate cancer. Or not. but when i'd run it in the theranos device it would come out eight point nine and then i'd run it again and it come out five point one and i'd run it again. Had come out point five which is technically in range. But what do you do in this scenario. What is the accurate answer

Thank you for the invitation to to speak at this forecast Bill in route. So dr chung. Thank you so much for joining us. Here on the podcast. And we'll jump right into it. Your lab focuses on the molecular mechanisms of stem cell quiescence and activation as dale on mentioned with a particular focus on adult stem cells. And this june you actually published a paper in developmental cell focusing on a unique mechanism global intron retention. That muscle stem cells. Actually used to stay quiescence so tell us a little bit more about this unique. Ra spicing story. And just how conserved is this mechanism in other adult stem cells as well so a ruin. Thank you for bringing This paper and where fair cited To a final paper published. But before i jump into the phenomenon all in retention.

How do I market to my personal network?

"Hi Chris. This is Angie Cheung from Los Angeles California I've been listening to the show for about a year. Now it's really helped catalyze the launch of my recent stem coloring book for kids regarding Cell Biology. My question is regarding how to get over feeling someone like a woman or a salesman to your personal network. To be more specific. I. Love My Day job as a by medical engineering professor and I would never give it up having said that I wanted to channel extra entrepreneurial energy. Along the way to completing the coloring book, I knew the best way to start would be to advertise existing network of scientists as other moms. However, I didn't WanNa feel to sales and hence awkward to people that out regularly run into. When the coloring book was right around finished Cova nineteen became a pandemic. And so I launched a coloring book. On Amazon an F. C. thinking, he can be a great homeschooling resource for parents during this time and with all proceeds donated to the CDC both of which were great goose for me to pull the trigger in goal I as the attention was not focused on my own personal gain. I feel like others could struggle with this internal conflict as well and I was wondering if you had any insight and recommendations on how to introduce your side hustle to your current network. Thanks love your show, and hope you're seeing Steve By. When she thank you so much for sharing. Thank you for calling in. Congratulations on launching your project, a stem coloring book for kids about cell. Biology. This is so cool I went to take a look listeners if you wanna see it checkout coloring book, just go search for her shop a little science on Oetzi. So if you're on dot com search for her shop a little science, the title of the coloring book itself is a little cell biology which by the way side note great way to. Set yourself up for a series, right? Because the brand is a little science and then you've got the first coloring book a Little Cell Biology. I'm not a scientist but I would imagine there are some further topics she could explore in future books. Okay. And then one more side note she mentioned when she mentioned that her all proceeds are to the CDC. During this time so actually alluded to that kind of obvious some of our concern about feeling sales like it's easier to promote something that you've made if the proceeds going to charity. But I think it's helpful for this conversation to not assume that you're getting your profits to charity because ultimately it's great that she's doing that but. I want to be able to make a profit. So assuming you have made something that you're selling for a profit. I think it's best for your friends and family to be more of a support network than a lead generation tool like your friends and family are not necessarily going to be your client base. But there is a lot that they can still do to help some of them may choose to buy from you just they want to help. I send my a free copy of my book, of course when it comes out but then she goes and buys more herself, which is amazing. Thank you. Mom I'm that's different than asking them to buy it. I'm not sending mom emails, Sake, will you buy my book? You know but what you want their help with whether it's your mom or somebody else in your support network is in becoming an ambassador if you have a lot of people in your network. Does who actually kind of do meet the target market for this project well, they probably do as well. and. So you're looking for a network effect here. You might even proactively offer to send them a free copy you know either for their kids their parent or for nieces and nephews for somebody else that they know. So often your friends and family will be very active in promoting you in a way that you might not want to do because you're concerned about being sales which I understand. But. If it's your friend, you know just think about it from the other perspective. Imagine that that your friend, your scientists and your friend has has created this coloring book and you look at it and you're like, wow, this is really cool. You know of course I'm going to help I'm post about it. I'm going to tell other people about it and I'm not really selling anything because I'm just talking about my friend. Okay. So again, I, think you're looking for a network effect from your network, not necessarily trying to sell to your network especially for a low priced product like a coloring book I do. The same with my books, like I have a lot of author friends and when they have a book coming out they, they will often send me an advance copy and they're not really asking me to go and buy more copies even though sometimes I do just because I want to support them they're asking for my help you know if it's a good fit to introduce this book to readers, and of course, I do the same thing when I have about coming out. So I think that's what you're looking for in terms of that network of friends and family the network and the fact of becoming an ambassador.

Cheung Tze-keung - Hong Kong's King Of Thieves

"Week. We discussed chauncey early life. And how his obsession with wealth led him to commit to ransom kidnappings as part of a master plan to extort the ten wealthiest men in Hong Kong? His first target was thirty one year old. Victor Lee the son of Hong Kong's wealthiest man Li ka-shing this week we'll delve into the fallout of lease kidnapping. And how it inspired Chung to go after the forty seven year old property development tycoon. Walter Kwok will also discuss. How an unexpected cooperation? Between Hong Kong and mainland China ultimately led to Chung's demise when sixty eight year old billionaire Li ka-shing into his front door on the night of May Twenty Third Nineteen Ninety six. He was expecting to see his son. Victor apologized for being so late instead. He found himself face to face with the infamous criminal. Forty-one-year-old chauncey calm and four other armed. Men Leave recognized Chung immediately. He was wanted by the police for multiple crimes including two high profile robberies at the Kai. Tak Airport the second of which had been the largest cash robbery in Hong Kong's history. There was hardly a person in Hong Kong. Who didn't know Chung secons name as Hong Kong's wealthiest Man Lee knew? It was no coincidence that the thief had chosen his front door to knock on but nothing could have prepared him for what Chong was about to say. The criminal informed Lee that he had captured his son. Victor and if Lee ever wanted to see him again he would have to pay two billion Hong Kong dollars now. We was stunned. He asked where they had taken. Victor but Chong shook his head and repeated the demand. Two billion dollars or victor was dead. Shaking Lee tried to assess how he could gather the money he knew as well as Chong that if anyone could access billions of dollars at a moment's notice it was him his company. Cheung Kong Industries had made him a multi-billionaire and victor was in line for the throne but Lee wasn't worried about the money or his company. He just wanted his son back on your shortland. A professor in political economy assesses that in kidnapping for ransom cases. The hostage is returned alive about ninety percent of the time on. This is because the kidnapper is usually willing to negotiate in feasible deal can often be reached. Shortland also stresses that when faced with a ransom kidnapper dilemma. One should not immediately give in to the criminals demands. The hostage taker is likely to interpret this as evidence that more money is available and they will continue to up the ransom amount. Instead shortland advises keeping the criminal in the dark about one's financial resources. The captive will typically be released for a fraction of the original demand of course most individuals when faced with a kidnapper. Aren't thinking like rational business people. They're more concerned with the release of their loved. Ones and their minds are racing with worst case scenarios like torture and execution but wittingly or not Li ka-shing did the right thing shaking. He told Chung that he couldn't gather so much money at a moment's notice but he would try to come up with what he could. He certainly didn't give so much money lying about in his home. Leah's Chung if he could go to the bank for a withdrawal but the criminal shook his head this could arale suspicion and possibly alert the authorities when cheeky move on lease part and the whole plan could fall apart Lee understood and said he would do his best but he knew there was no way together that much money from inside the house under the supervision of Chung and his men Lee drained every hiding place and wallet in his home. He tried to come up with enough cash and valuables to satisfy the steep ransom demand. All the while worrying about his poor son finally having exhausted all his immediate resources. Li presented Chung with his loot. He knew it wasn't enough but he hoped Chung would settle for it surely he couldn't be expected together two billion if he wasn't even allowed to go to the bank. Lee watched with dread as the men counted their spoils. They were one billion short. Chung glared at Lea- incredulous. He could hardly believe that. A man as wealthy as Li ka-shing could only cough up half the amount on a smaller scale. Chong himself knew what it meant to be wealthy. His criminal escapades had paid off and his double life was lavish to him. Money was something to gamble with and enjoy and Chong's own home reflected. This opulence but Lee was a different breed. He was shrewd he invested. And he certainly didn't keep two billion dollars lying about his comparatively modest mansion once again. Li explained that he couldn't come up with two billion unless John allowed him to go to the bank and for the first time the criminal considered it he could get away with the full amount. If everything went smoothly but ultimately Chung couldn't risk it. If there was one place he had sworn never to go back to. It was prison. Besides one billion dollars was a lot of money. Five Times the amount he had obtained in his last airport robbery and it was plenty to fund his lavish lifestyle but grudgingly. He agreed to settle for one billion dollars half his original ask. He ordered Li ka-shing to pack up the money for him as Lee placed the cash. In bags he has Chong why he was doing this. Chung replied. I take unconventional steps to get rich. Money is the most important thing in life. But it's only me who can get away with kidnapping tycoons Charleena's men grabbed the bags of cash. Jong delivered a final warning if Lee or victor ever told the police about the kidnapping they would be dead. We nod and watched as the vans sped off into the night. Now all he could do was wait hoping that Chong would hold up his end of the bargain meanwhile victor was locked inside. Chun's hideout just over the border in mainland China. It had only been a few hours since his capture when his captors finally returned they blindfolded Victor and hurried him outside into a van as they drove. Victor imagined the worst. Perhaps they were taking him away to be murdered. His body could be buried somewhere. It would never be found and victor's family would never know why their son had disappeared. It was all too confusing and sickening for victor to come to grips with a few hours later. The van rolled to a stop. The car doors opened in several hands helped victor as he stumbled onto the sidewalk. He felt the crisp night air on his skin has one of his captors began untying his blindfold as it fell away. Victor recognized his surroundings. He was standing in the driveway of his father's house. In deep water. Bay Hong Kong Victor was bewildered. Was He being released? Was his family going to be harmed. He turned around and for the first time. Locked eyes with his captor the infamous Chunky Kong as victor stared at Chung. He could hardly register who this person was and what they wanted but before he could make sense of the situation. Chong stepped forward. He grabbed victor's face leaned in and planted a kiss on his forehead. Then he told victor he had been a good boy and he promised never to harm him or his family again back in his hideout. Chon divided the spoils amongst his comrades keeping forty percent for himself. He was happy that it pulled off. Such a new and brave stunt it was proof to Chung that. His master plan was feasible if he could kidnap the son of the wealthiest man in China and get away with it then he could kidnap anyone especially the rest of China's

"Avail in the end to Chung's men turned on him and September of Nineteen Ninety one. He was tried for the armed robbery and sentenced to eighteen years in prison. We'll Chunky Kong was no stranger to life behind bars. This time was different. It was wealthy now and a respected. If elusive member of Hong Kong's high-society. He couldn't believe that the police had the audacity to lock him up in his mind. These officers were the real criminals. They took money from the taxpayers and used it to go after innocent. People like him as opposed to violent offenders. This perspective isn't uncommon among criminals. Stanton knee SAM now. A clinical psychologist reports that nearly all criminal offenders view themselves as good people. They often excuse their behavior by citing their religion and good deeds or by stating that other criminals have committed more heinous crimes than themselves while in prison. Chung claimed that he was treated. He alleged that in order to get a confession from him. Police officers hit him with sticks and whipped him with belts he also said. They tortured his wife leaving both of them with scars. Chong wasted away in prison losing any hope of speedy appeal however only eighteen months into his lengthy sentence lock was back on Chung side. During one of his appeals. A guard who was present at the Kai. Tak robbery failed to properly identify Chung. The charges were dropped in June. Nineteen ninety five. The forty year old Cheung Kong was released from prison but John was hardly in the mood to celebrate his newfound freedom. His time behind bars had left him. Extremely bitter what. Good were his promises to remain nonviolent. If he ended up in prison with the murderers anyway to make matters worse his own triad brothers had betrayed him. The UNBREAKABLE BONDS OF THE TRIAD BROTHERHOOD. Apparently could be broken. Chang's honor codes seemed irrelevant to him now. He found himself at a crossroads and decided to move forward alone. All he had to do was pick his next crime at this point. Chun had run the gamut of armed robbery yet proven to himself that he was as capable of executing seemingly impossible heists as he was small theft he felt confident that he can pull off a crime of even greater magnitude. It also had to be more lucrative. Prison HADN'T TAMED. Chung's appetite for wealth. If anything it made him more insatiable Roderick Broadhurst a professor of criminology noted that Chun's willingness to go to extremes for money isn't really uncommon. We live in a society measured by wealth and status. So it's unsurprising that when people can't earn the money they desire through conventional means. They turned to innovative. In sometimes illegal methods. Chung was no exception. He was obsessed with money and he would stop at nothing to feed his greed. With this goal in mind he settled on his most radical scheme. Yet it was going to kidnap the ten richest men Hong Kong and hold them for ransom. Coming up Chung goes after his first victim back to the story in June. Nineteen ninety-five forty-year-old. Cheung Kong had recently been released from his second stint in prison. But this time he made no effort to turn his life around and go legit he had gotten a taste of the good life and he was willing to do anything to hold onto it including kidnapping people for ransom. Chong had devised a dramatic scheme. He was going to abduct the ten wealthiest men in Hong Kong and hold them for ransom. Having settled on this plan Chung got down to the specifics who to kidnap I ultimately. He decided on thirty one year old. Victor Lee the son of one of Hong Kong's wealthiest businessmen and the heir to his father's Fortune Chauncey. Kahn had a lot in common with victor's father. Sixty eight year old. Li ka-shing neither grew up particularly wealthy and both men had taken huge risks that resulted in vast wealth. But while Chong used illegal means Li ka-shing had honed his legacy honestly in one thousand nine hundred ninety six sixty eight year old businessman. Li ka-shing was the richest man. In Asia. Hong Kongers affectionately referred to him as Superman for his quintessential rags to riches tale Li ka-shing and his family fled to Hong Kong from mainland China during the Second World War. Shortly afterwards lease father died of tuberculosis saddling. His sixteen year old son with financial responsibility for the whole family Lee began working at a factory where he was eventually promoted to manager by the age of twenty two. He had saved up enough meager earnings to open his very own plastics factory. Cheung Kong Industries Lease Company proved to be massively successful and he used his profits to branch out into other lucrative industries shrewd businessman. He invested in energy solutions technologies and building developers throughout the world as well as real estate in Hong Kong in spite of his wealth. Li ka-shing was well loved. He had a solid reputation for being a man of his word stating that a verbal yes or no is as good as a written contract and he was a very modest family man. His pride and joy in life was his son. Victor Thirty one year old. Victor had spent his formative years being groomed to take over. Cheung Kong Industries. He studied civil engineering at Stanford University before moving to Vancouver where he oversaw one of his father's subsidiary companies Husky Energy. When Victor came aboard the company was doing quite poorly but victor side as an opportunity to prove himself by one thousand nine hundred ninety Husky energy was thriving and Victor. Li had been promoted to co-chairman impressed by his sons initiative. Li ka-shing invited victor to return to Hong Kong and worked directly underneath him at Cheung Kong headquarters by Nineteen ninety-six thirty one year old. Victor was well established at Cheung Kong. Little did he know that criminal mastermind. Cheung Kong was watching his every move. Chung's men gathered information. About what time victor left home in the morning? How long it took him to get to work. What kind of car? He drove and where he went to lunch. Once Chung piece together victor schedule he discovered that on May Twenty Third Nineteen ninety-six. Victor was scheduled to visit his father's home in deep water. Bay Chung thought. This was as good a time as any to strike the evening of May Twenty Third. Victor wrapped up his last meeting for the day. He was looking forward to a quiet night with his family and his dark blue. Nissan President Limousine was waiting outside for him but Chunky Kong and four other men were waiting for him to victor. Li casually tossed his briefcase into the back seat of the Waiting Limo. But before he had a chance to slide into his seat he was blindsided. Five men tackled him shoving a blindfold over his face in a split second before he was blindfolded. Victor caught a glimpse of the assault. Rifles that Chung in the four other men were carrying you felt calloused hands. Hold his arms behind his body while someone else bound his wrists and legs with chains. Victor heard several different voices but he couldn't tell how many from what he could tell. One man was in charge. The whole ordeal happened. In a matter of seconds even victor's driver couldn't react fast enough to help Chung and his men tossed victor into a waiting truck and started driving hours past. Victor had no idea where they were headed. He was worried they had crossed the border into China or his chances of being discovered were slim after what felt like ours. Victor was dragged from the car and tossed into a small dark place that had wooden walls and no windows. This was hardly a room. It was more like a wooden crate. The kind used for shipping cargo one of the henchmen handed victor a bowl of steamed pork and rice. He accepted not knowing when or if he was going to get any more food. Victor wondered if he should just ask the man what was going on or what they wanted from him but that could potentially be more dangerous. You decided to keep his mouth shut. All he could do was wait for answers. Meanwhile at Lea- ka-shing's palatial home in Deep Water Bay Road Victor's billionaire father anxiously awaiting his arrival. Dinner was almost ready. And it wasn't like victor to be so late. Finally the doorbell rang. One of the maids went to the door. Expecting to see victor but her jaw dropped in terror when she saw a different familiar face to recognized him from the newspaper. Chunky Kong the criminal. Who Had Rob Kai Tak? Airport Chung demanded to see Li ka-shing immediately. He informed -ly that if he ever wanted to see his son again it would cost him two billion Hong Kong dollars..

"I I think up to five sidecars attached to it so we have on voyager which is running the proxy we have a stat sidecar. That's forwarding all all the stats. I think we also have optionally a log forwarding sidecar and. I don't even remember some of the other side cars. We have some an Olympic sidecars for like events but yes so the way that like services get deployed is that they can serve like flag or opt out Ota sidecars and otherwise we give them the default set aside cars which like logs stats. What's the process of you've deploying a new service at lift so we have served like standard service templates that help generate generate new services? And then I guess like the first step issues IRV like pick what stack your service is gonNA use. Are you going to be like Python or goes service and depending on that you might have different generators. Let's say up generating like python service so there's like a template and gets automatically populated related. And then maybe I'll like at some points and then I can just like supply. All our deployments go through slack so we just like gone slack slack and deploy the service for the first time and then the image gets generated and we also automatically generate the communities as objects and then it gets deployed onto the cluster. This serves like a simplified version of that pipeline. But that's the gist. Now you've been at lift for two years. What are the canonical engineering challenges? To the extent that you understand them or are there some particular challenges that you think are characteristic characteristic of lift problems that will arise in different forms within the company for a long time. That's a good question. I think one thing incoming into left that has been interesting is testing end to end has been interesting because like lift is is a pretty stateful service compared to a lot of other services like you can be in a ride and then the ride has like different states that it is in and so oh we have for example. We've developed all these tools and services to help us test. These things. Like to help simulate rights for example and like staging and in production so that we can always be testing all these like different states that our clients can be in and I think because of that it does present a lot of challenges when we're developing new features or like writing new services. Is that just be aware that there are a lot US state fullness to the data. Yeah do you mean staple nece in the sense that on average ride for example you just have a a user that is moving through the world physically inner ride and that ride has state the user is accruing more more expensive over time or the. The ride is moving through space. Is that the kind of state that you're talking about. Yeah your serve like basically there's there's like. ICS massive state machine. You're sort of like moving through different states year like requesting a ride and it gets dispatched and then maybe get matched. And then. You're finally like moving in a ride with the driver that does they're like laugh. Edge cases to that if the driver cancels happens and so there's I think that does make serve like testing trickier and I think another thing is like we have all these. We're dealing with all the real time time updates from all the mobile APP so dealing with serve like low connectivity. Another interesting problem. It's not in my teams demeanor. We'll house us but I think that's another interesting thing that we always test for. Yeah we do on boy mobile show with Matt where we touched on some of that that it does seem like another one of these canonical problems is the interacting with the mobile infrastructure. That's if immorality so is lift still entirely early on. Aws Or have you moved into other clouds or on prem infrastructure no that can say specifically but were not exclusively on hideous. I think we're primarily a shop but we do have things running and other clouds or while. So yes and some a little bit of like on Prem stuff do you have any perspective for like. Let's say hypothetically I am building a big company on aws and basically I want some minimum degree of fail over into into a multi cloud scenario. What are the areas that are most critical for me to insulate? What should be my multi cloud strategy energy? That's a big question. I think the first thing to figure out it sounds like what you're going to do with your data rare. You're going to replicate the data across different clouds or are you going to keep them in one place and if you do then you're like I guess not effectively like highly available so serve like deciding if you want to be like active active or active passive is. Maybe the first step is like how how much you want to be. Replicated and another thing is like serve connectivity between the clouds how crucial that is because there's a lot of tricky parts like connecting things between the clouds like you have to get a lot of times to get fiber from telecom then it's not like super straightforward. I can get pretty expensive and a lot of times. It's not clear if like if the interconnect goes down like which end is down so there are a lot of questions that need to be flushed out and also like how things fail and what happens when they fail. I guess that's pretty like Bacon. Vague Question Allegri. How deep okay? More specific question. I don't know if you can answer this one. Do you use any cloud. Cloud cost management systems. So we have our own in house. Built one yeah so we do use based astounding data from aws and because we do attribution by like by team or by project so we do have our own labeling link on our jobs and then our in house system will scrape the data and it has like a nice dashboard and everything we can serve like see real time How much each each team or each project is using that whole space of cloud cost management? It's kind of interesting because there are so many of these companies at. Ah I must have seen tanner. Twenty cloud cost management companies at the various conferences. I attended in the last year or two. Do you think think this is. Is this an area like logging where there's just going to be multiple winners or do you think that it's going to consolidate into somebody that just dominates cloud cost management uh-huh. Actually that's a good question like I especially saw a lot this year coupon. I guess because Coburn Eddie's gives people woodlice. Api to serve like scrape the Dayton. Give a nice cost dashboard. But I don't think there is like a clear winner. I'm not sure I guess there is opportunity for there to be one. Yeah I think a lot of people I've talked to those. That are have have their own in house one just because of like there's a live specific data that like each or each company wants right now and aloft those other solutions newer and I guess that's I haven't looked too deeply into them by take some of her serve like pricing models or interesting as well. Like some of the ones I've seen are like like Some sort of like presented each of your cloud cost which seems like. It's maybe counterintuitive because then our incentives aren't aligned. I want to save money and you want me to spend money true coupon and I go as well one of the things I like about Cube conest honest that there is this meeting of the minds of different kinds of companies so for example you have people from lift mixing mixing with people from an insurance company. That's a hundred years old that has layers and layers of legacy infrastructure because there are a hundred years old lift has its own legacy infrastructure. Because it's not the youngest company in the world anymore. It's all post cloud. What's your perspective? Active on the COOBER. Nettie is related problems that the pre cloud these older enterprises are having compared to the Kuban. Eddie's problems that accompany that is younger a company like lift is having so. I think there's like a number of different ways depending I guess on what they came from I would say one is like a lot of the communities materials or like conversations have been very well clouded. Guess and so like if the older enterprises have their own data centers Colo.. Maybe that's a little bit less relevant. And so they have their own set of challenges. There's like the plane communities onto their data center with like a very static fleet and then they also have questions about whether they should move to the cloud so so I think that serve like one bake fundamental difference and I think a lot of conversations I guess this year are like last year have been on like development or like user experience and so a lot of the conversations. I've been on like matching user experience to like maybe what people were used to before or just like making clout native usable or user friendly. And I think maybe some of the workflows are different between traditional Shaw enterprises and like more Newer start ups that have have been on the cloud from day one so I think that's maybe like another difference. It's a third maybe like less about the like age of the company but maybe more so about the type of company they are. It's like a sort of see a lot of more. Traditional enterprises as having businesses need more security and that serve like have been a big focus. Yes I could con. Las Time is like security or regulation or governance clusters. So I think that's another one. That's let's jumping to mind right now. Do you have a perspective for how the different cloud providers are diverging from one another or do you feel like they're just trying to maintain feature Perry with one another when you look at aws. Google Asher well. A Hick Azure. There have been served leading in terms of like making everything super user friendly. And and you're just like abstracting away everything that's underneath and just be like okay. Here's the Cooper nowadays. Api and this is what we provide a manage eighty eighty S. Like sort of trending that way but like not quite as drastically or aggressively as Asher I google has yet. They're also also like the most experienced in running communities and I think there may be more in the middle like not you could use Google Abstract everything away serve way but like again not quite as extreme as I think. What kinds of custom tools rules or platforms? Have you built on top of Coober Netease at lift. I WANNA say like we've built a number of platforms on top of Cooper nineties. I'm not not sure if that's what you're asking about. So for example we have like our own machine learning platform running. On top of Cooper Netease the provides like interface for machine lowering scientists and. That's entirely sort of like running on Cobra Netease and we have others like developer. tooling I guest built on top of communities Not sure if that's what era frank to you. Can you say more about that. So is it something similar. We're to two cube flow or is it just completely homegrown yet. It's completely homegrown. I started at around the time when could flow was like maybe before it could flow or when was very young. And I'm sure we're not the only company that has built a platform like this. But it served leveraging the flexibility and speed and skill ability of Cooper Netease to do machine learning training and so gives a pretty user friendly interface interface for our researchers to start any experiment they want to and that just spawns jobs on a cluster so the auto scaling that that you want out of machine learning training. That's what it makes simpler because you need a you know. Maybe spend a lot of servers to paralyze the training or shopping. Yeah I think there's that and there's like this flexibility that is that you get from using containers because when when you're training experiments you're you're using very specific libraries to help you sort of define your model and your training so rather than serve. It's like asking the infrastructure team to go install all these like libraries to the machine and make sure it's all the right version and they're all compatible and everything like he can do that in your container image and I just tell the orchestrator to go run. This is like a hundred times or something and I think it empowers users a lot more. You're to serve experiment and play with what jobs they want to run and also now they can serve like scale easier without again without the help of the infrastructure appreciative team. I love software architecture. Software Architecture is the high level perspective of how to build software systems much of software engineering daily is about software.

That are have have their own in house one just because of like there's a live specific data that like each or each company wants right now and aloft those other solutions newer and I guess that's I haven't looked too deeply into them by take some of her serve like pricing models or interesting as well. Like some of the ones I've seen are like like Some sort of like presented each of your cloud cost which seems like. It's maybe counterintuitive because then our incentives aren't aligned. I want to save money and you want me to spend money true coupon and I go as well one of the things I like about Cube conest honest that there is this meeting of the minds of different kinds of companies so for example you have people from lift mixing mixing with people from an insurance company. That's a hundred years old that has layers and layers of legacy infrastructure because there are a hundred years old lift has its own legacy infrastructure. Because it's not the youngest company in the world anymore. It's all post cloud. What's your perspective? Active on the COOBER. Nettie is related problems that the pre cloud these older enterprises are having compared to the Kuban. Eddie's problems that accompany that is younger a company like lift is having so. I think there's like a number of different ways depending I guess on what they came from I would say one is like a lot of the communities materials or like conversations have been very well clouded. Guess and so like if the older enterprises have their own data centers Colo.. Maybe that's a little bit less relevant. And so they have their own set of challenges. There's like the plane communities onto their data center with like a very static fleet and then they also have questions about whether they should move to the cloud so so I think that serve like one bake fundamental difference and I think a lot of conversations I guess this year are like last year have been on like development or like user experience and so a lot of the conversations. I've been on like matching user experience to like maybe what people were used to before or just like making clout native usable or user friendly. And I think maybe some of the workflows are different between traditional Shaw enterprises and like more Newer start ups that have have been on the cloud from day one so I think that's maybe like another difference. It's a third maybe like less about the like age of the company but maybe more so about the type of company they are. It's like a sort of see a lot of more. Traditional enterprises as having businesses need more security and that serve like have been a big focus. Yes I could con. Las Time is like security or regulation or governance clusters. So I think that's another one. That's let's jumping to mind right now. Do you have a perspective for how the different cloud providers are diverging from one another or do you feel like they're just trying to maintain feature Perry with one another when you look at aws. Google Asher well. A Hick Azure. There have been served leading in terms of like making everything super user friendly. And and you're just like abstracting away everything that's underneath and just be like okay. Here's the Cooper nowadays. Api and this is what we provide a manage eighty eighty S. Like sort of trending that way but like not quite as drastically or aggressively as Asher I google has yet. They're also also like the most experienced in running communities and I think there may be more in the middle like not you could use Google Abstract everything away serve way but like again not quite as extreme as I think. What kinds of custom tools rules or platforms? Have you built on top of Coober Netease at lift. I WANNA say like we've built a number of platforms on top of Cooper nineties. I'm not not sure if that's what you're asking about. So for example we have like our own machine learning platform running. On top of Cooper Netease the provides like interface for machine lowering scientists and. That's entirely sort of like running on Cobra Netease and we have others like developer. tooling I guest built on top of communities Not sure if that's what era frank to you. Can you say more about that. So is it something similar. We're to two QB flow or is it just completely homegrown yet. It's completely homegrown. I started at around the time when could flow was like maybe before it could flow or when was very young. And I'm sure we're not the only company that has built a platform like this. But it served leveraging the flexibility and speed and skill ability of Cooper Netease to do machine learning training and so gives a pretty user friendly interface interface for our researchers to start any experiment they want to and that just spawns jobs on a cluster so the auto scaling that that you want out of machine learning training. That's what it makes simpler because you need a you know. Maybe spend a lot of servers to paralyze the training or shopping. Yeah I think there's that and there's like this flexibility that is that you get from using containers because when when you're training experiments you're you're using very specific libraries to help you sort of define your model and your training so rather than serve. It's like asking the infrastructure team to go install all these like libraries to the machine and make sure it's all the right version and they're all compatible and everything like he can do that in your container image and I just tell the orchestrator to go run. This is like a hundred times or something and I think it empowers users a lot more. You're to serve experiment and play with what jobs they want to run and also now they can serve like scale easier without again without the help of the infrastructure appreciative team. I love software architecture. Software Architecture is the high level perspective of how to build software systems much of software engineering daily is about software.

Well I'm in the midst of creating pets world tastes right now and do you have Jane. GOODELL's Like endorsement Minton's after I photographed her. I asked her if I hope you know if I could help her fundraise first of all for her her amazing institute she has one hundred thousand kids in her kids club and for pets world. He's also creating a kids club so I really warning to lake envisioning. How can I help nonprofits around the world? How can we help the environment? How can we help animal shelters? How can we help? Animal assisted therapy and so it is my joy to photograph animals. Helping people in amazing ways like There were some breast cancer patients that went to a horse facility that I photographed recently. The mental mental illnesses came up. A veterans wins her learning from the animals. Wow autistic kids are learning from the animals. So there's a lot of healing going. Oh that's what I want to bring out with. Pets real appeases funding these amazing nonprofits. So Oh wow so how. How are you taking steps to do that? So the steps to taking that is finding the right. You know the people who love animals. So I'm totally open. Anyone who loves animals can fleas contact me and and I can show them that. We're GONNA have like pets for world peace ambassadors. They can nominate their own animals of roles piece in a letter a pets were piece. So they'll have. They'll have their their F- their animals photographed in in publications that they could being publications like it'd be pets world peace game. Oh that's right you're working on a game. Yes tell us about that. Well I really think that the the children of today really love to be engaged in games now. Many of them are pretty violent. You know and they're doing really well L. financially but I want to create a game that brings kids from all over the world and they can. They can enter their own hats. As is the pets world peace ambassadors and the pets can fly in over the world and help certain endangered species. They might go to the Arctic and find the polar bears they might go to Hawaii and see the endangered sea turtles. They might go to a myriad of places and go on adventures to help save the environment which ultimately saves us as the planet. It's all together. It's all integrated or integral absolutely as well. Well that's exciting. Yes so when. Do you think you'll have your game out. Going next year. Is Our our launch times. Okay very excited nine and I'm working with the SPCA humane societies. I'll be calling Dr Goodell's institute and so they do. They know about it already. Some of them do you okay. And they're very excited because what I've seen over the years of photography you do a lot of pro bono work nonprofits. Yeah and a lot of them have just the very minimal sustainable income coming through so I wanted to create something finding exciting that we'd be educational and that would create funding funding for them for a long time. Oh that's great. Yeah wow well. Is there any other little nuggets. And you would like to share with our audience interviewers. I just encourage people to really go deep inside and every morning even it's just five minutes a day just to keep running journal or an art book whatever it is and just start collecting what what brings joy way. Even if it's cutting out pictures of bluewater in Hawaii or something like that or whether it's yoga or in our mind thinks in visual terms so that's why also like photography Oh it's like capturing in essence that will never like a split second but but that it conjures up so much you know and that reminds me. You're saying the pictures and it's and it's and I've done this. Several Times is doing vision board. That's important to to put all those photos on the things that you want that you're str- you know that you're you're going towards the it will pull you these beautiful Vacation places or places like I WANNA go to Monte PUCCI peach you when one of these days as you know and I haven't gone there and You know there's a special places all over new visions and whenever yeah so you know not just keep keep your dream alive. Yes never keep that fire burning may go down low but just stuck it keeps stoking the fires the fire and then once you create the Vision Border Journal or the the art book yeah then create inspired action lists because it takes you have to. There's a being state which is beautiful but then the doing the inspired action go out there and that's the hardest part for some people. Yeah you know but when you when you let go your fear and you stay take that one step and it only takes one step at a time. You don't have to take major steps but one step at a time so you'll gone it you've got it you'll eventually reach your goal. If you take a step day yeah I mean that's all you can you will yes Lori.

Blizzard's Embarrassing Blitzchung Response - Kinda Funny Games Daily 10.14.19

"Going to be a kingdom hearts takeover i noticed i noticed the kingdom heart i i thought it was a soccer jersey knows kingdom hearts huge dork yes i am shouts mckee blade you mentioned you were very happy and you talked about how much hang out for twenty four hours not anymore headstone we broke we broke that in three years sucks man join us now absurd what's john everything else yeah well yesterday or i should say that last week of course all we did was talk about here on kind of funny games deal you giving you daily updates and what was happening however notably absent from the conversation of the message part of thinking globally leaving responsibly and every voice matters is can is it that we have players and fans and almost every country in the world our goal is to help players connect in areas of commonality like their passion for our games in create a sense of shared community this specific views expressed by blitz chung were not a factor in the decision we made i want to be clear our relationships in china had no influence on our decision we have these rules to keep the focus on the game and on the tournament to the benefit of the global audience and that was the only consideration in the actions we took this has been the opposing viewpoint delivering the same divisive and deliberate way we would have felt enacted the same okay what could blizzard have done better and where do we go from here over the past few days many players casters east sports fans and employees have expressed concern about how we determine the penalties we've had a chance to pause to listen community and reflect on what we could have done better in hindsight our process wasn't adequate and we were acted too quickly we want to ensure that we maintain a safe and inclusive environment for all our players and our rules are an processes are clear all of this is in service of another important blizzard value play nice play fair in the tournament itself blitz shung played fair we now believe he should receive his pricing we understand for some that this is not about the prize in perhaps for others it is disrespect we'll even discuss it that is not our intention but playing fair also includes appropriate pre and post mashed conduct especially when a player accepts recognition for winning on a bra in abroad the y. when we think about the suspension six months with cheung is more appropriate after what time he can compete in the heart stone pro circuit again if he if he so chooses there is a consequence for taking the conversation away from the purpose of the event in disrupting ordeal railing the broadcast with regards to the casters remember their purposes to keep the it focused on the tournament that didn't happen here we are setting their suspension to six months as well moving forward we will continue to apply tournament rules to ensure our official broadcasts remained focused on the game and are not platform for divisive social or political views one of our goals is to make sure that every player everywhere in the world are this a political views religious beliefs race gender or any other consideration always feel safe and welcome both competing in and playing our games at blizzard we are always listening in finding ways to improve is part of our culture they even your patients with us as we continue to learn cameron i just talked long time what was your initial reaction is this happen so when i read this originally on friday i actually like just laughed i laughed because i think that i it was just so silly to me and the response in certain certain aspects that like first and foremost that blizzard is an american company and if you're if you're an american company i think that your values should implements american american values ideals america ideals like free speech things like that and it makes me think like what if this was up boycott or something that happened at an event that wasn't in china you know what i mean yeah so when they said that that was not being a relationship china's no influence like you know we we can't with that to be true or false but like who's gonna actually believe that you know what i mean like there's such such a big market there that it's just really hard to to believe something in that in that regard and that the if it was the opposite way around where it was like a pro government boycott that they would still have t took an action like it i don't it's not a direct comparison but like the lead actress for the milan remake yes she was she supported the government in the in this whole situation like earlier this year disney didn't say anything like and you know and i feel like if that were the case it would have been the case with blizzard you know what i mean yeah so it's an and the main thing that really was confusing to me is the whole living with the commentators still being right because what did you expect them to do in that situation commentators thing is still something i'm i don't understand where the absurd suspension is coming from because we talked about all last week right they kick it over to blitz showing the see what's happening they put their heads down yeah i've seen once in your own in unsighted you're wrong that said the before they kick it over to bliss showing they say okay say that whatever the six words or four words you're going to say i've seen reported nowhere else i'm not saying it's not true but if that's the case then i guess it's shows that they premeditatively understood what was about to happen but i've seen that cited nowhere mentioned in articles insight for me and give me an article give more context and clarity two what exactly's going that'd be definitely be interesting but like if even if it wasn't even if they didn't know exactly protest against the chinese government that was like what did you expect them to do in that situation because like that doesn't happen like you know so professional commentators that were like hired by blizzard or whatever may be but like that was if that was me i probably would have had a alert reaction and after they that happens they kind of speak to them to each other and i mean i don't know what they say but then didn't they awkwardly clap they're like okay you know let's move on i guess so it was really weird to me that i that are being punished for something that like they as a as of right now that we think that they didn't expect so i don't know that's that's really weird to me still yeah overall and i'd like to think that on the show and i'm kind of funny content in general right tried to be as middle of the road who even keells i can't be right as we take it any way and stuff like having read this at five thirty on friday when it dropped and then having a weekend it here and process it and read it once more on this thing this statement is bullshit yeah the blizzard should be fucking embarrassed themselves like i can't believe again this is what hanging their hat on they had one entire week to come up with something and this is what they come up with this contradictory statements that reads almost bipolar as you go to our multiple personalities who are we talking they start here with it you know what i mean like our vision is to bring together we've core values that apply here think globally leader responsibly in importantly every voice matters inconvenient encouraging everybody to share their point of view yeah okay cool and then know at the end were penalizing for during his point of view because yeah just because it's an inconvenience to them and we're not a platform for divisive social or political views and i think it might have been jeff grab i retweeted but somebody on twitter put out yet no it was from jian crap sorry i want maybe john john ryan maybe somebody else iran but an agent who was the yes the divisive social political view of freedom is good yeah what the fuck are you trying to say here like and it's just so they just as gary gary was here he'd be talking about how his word salad yeah i wanna know like the number of lawyers and like PR people that blizzard have read through this and thought yeah this is what we've talked about last week as there's obviously it's coming down from on high of what you need to do here so it's definitely being all right cool we have to say something it's not going to be well received how do we go through this with eddie make it work in a sense i would have like in a sense i would have been atarot with them just being like hey we hear your criticisms things like that were sticking with what we said because that's where we are in a in a sense by like this like this is embarrassing like i don't i don't know what we can it's just a i am curious like since breath blizzard currently they recently got a new president with alan black and you know them being owned by activision now like from what i've seen in like from players like friends i have that are like wow players and things like that they feel like that blizzards quality in in general as a company has declined throughout the years since act divisions purchase slim merge so i don't know because correct me if i'm wrong appreciate the blizzard previous president he like step down because i didn't really like what activism wanted to do and i feel like that now that they got this guy in charge they can more endel the reins yeah as to what they do as a company so that's a little worrisome to i'm not sure though so to go back to the commentator stuff an anthropologist links me too post right but again this is the this is the comet that's up here right is someone going i completely understand that emotions running high there's translation on this one right this is just a person out here who's name is ESL sucks they've been voted a lot here but the quick translation says here's casters okay so you just say the words will stop here enough chitchatting for now don't forget to put your head down giggles and then blitz chung restore hong then that's even a different thing than what it is depending away but the one here is restore hong kong time for a revolution nassar's okay okay that's enough which isn't the translation give rails and as matt the wa points out in your own accord a PC gamer this is what the virtual was what the virtual the castor had to say about it quote the director only told me i have i have an interview the twenty six year old taiwanese catcher said he didn't about how he didn't talk about how he's wearing a mask so in the interview started i wasn't sure what the situation was i thought chung would only say what he just what we wanted to say which again is what we've been reading still have a comment now granted there's a translation issue here which you can even harder to figure out exactly what happened i haven't seen why they're being penalized for it but yeah it's it's really it's a really complicated situation and we're still in the middle of it we aren't getting out of story won for quite some time blitz chung then put out a response on twitter it is also lengthy i will read it in full thank you for your attention in the past one week this is a personal statement and my view on blizzard's latest decision first of all i'm grateful for blizzard considering the position about my band earlier this week i told media that i'm i'm sorry i told media that i knew i might have penalty or consequence for my act because i understand that act could take the conversation away from the purpose of the event in the future i will be more careful on that and express my opinions or show my support to hong kong on my personal platforms many people have been asking and i'm just going to read this incident has been asking me if i accept the latest decision of blizzard i will discuss that onto parts tournament pricing suspension for tournament pricing i quoted blizzard set on the official website they mentioned that i played fair in the tournament and they believe i should receive my pricing this is the part i really appreciate blizzard also said they understand for some this is not about the prize but perhaps her others disrespectful to even discuss it people from blizzard had explained this to me and this to me through his phone call and i really appreciate that and i accept their decision on his part for first second part about my suspension blizzard had changed on me from a year to six months once again i appreciate for their reconsideration on this to be honest i think six months is still quite a lot of still quite a lot to me but i also i'm being told that i can continue to compete in the hurston pro circuit which they mean the grandmaster tournament i appreciate for this decision they made because grandmasters currently the highest level tournament competitive heart stone however i wish blizzard can reconsider about their penalty on the two castres involved lastly many people wants to know if i would be competing in stone in the future honestly i have no idea on that yet since my next tournament is very likely to be the grandmaster tournament of next season it's it's probably at least a few months from now on i will take this time to relax myself to decide if i am staying in competitive are thrown or not heart-stopping changed the way i live i really love this community blessing to all the players out there and blessing to blizzard as usual bliss showing on this one i feel taking the high road and all this for sure i i appreciate of course understanding as he disagrees but still paying for are not pay paying tribute to blizzard i understand like this is the biggest thing about it yeah i mean there's not much is that he can do outside of that as of right now i i you know i feel like that there's not much more that's going to happen on unfortunately
