"Choices. Missing debit card to do a formal. Dna comparison and confirm what they're now like ninety nine percent. Sure of law enforcement collects some blood from roger chang while also comparing joyce's dental records with their jane doe now all this is pretty standard nothing out of the ordinary right but once the results from the autopsy comes back things. Start to get weird. According to an article in the leaf chronicle. Her cause of death is inconclusive with no marks on her skeleton to indicate a gunshot wound or stabbing or anything like that so since she was on the river. What about water in her lungs to tell them if she had drowned. Apparently they can't even tell that it's inconclusive. I know this common view that autopsies always hold the answers about how someone died. And i mean it's true that more often than not they do and more often than not law enforcement learns something from the autopsy. Even if it's not like a black and white you know this is how it was done and whatever there's still information like information information and yet here there's nothing i'm gonna be honest. I didn't even think this was possible. I thought dental records were assure thing i did too. But i mean there's a first time for everything i guess so it this play all police can do is wait for the dna test results to come back. Hopefully with that conclusive identification. Now that takes a couple of weeks but ultimately it is confirmed. Their jane doe is joyce chang but even now they still have almost nothing to go on by july of nineteen ninety nine six months after joyce i went missing. Investigators are grasping at straws. Like they look into some sketchy and honestly borderline racist theories about joyce's financial habits. They also look into the possibility that she was abducted by a sex trafficking. Ring and police also follow up on another theory. That's got a little more substance to it. So it turns out that one starbucks employees does come forward a little bit later and tell police back in january that you know what they did think they saw joyce in the shop..

"From america's most wanted we'll help investigation so they work with that tv team to get some coverage for the case once they get their lab results back a couple of weeks later it looks promising according to another report from nbc news for the fbi manages to pull some clues that they believe could lead them to dna samples. Fbi's playing coy and trying really hard not to show their hand to the media but the reporters in this news piece basically tell the fbi like we already know what it is like. Don't bother dancing around it. Because their sources had told them that they got hairs off of joyce's stuff so law enforcement collects some samples of joyce's hair for comparison against what they've pulled from joyce's belongings analysis shows that the hairs found on her stuff belonged to two different people. One white person and one black person now since joys taiwanese-american those hairs can't belong to her around the one month mark of joyce's disappearance. The fbi makes a statement where they tell everyone. They don't believe that she left. The area of her own free will that she was taken by a stranger or even by someone she knew so between that statement and you know finding these hairs on her things than they know something went really wrong here right and they know that they need to find joyce and they need to find her now but they don't have any leads on suspects right. No no the. Fbi says they're not ruling out any potential suspects including joyce's roommate and little brother. Roger chang so we see and missing persons cases how sometimes a member of the victim's family can really become like a main spokesperson for the chiang family. That's totally been roger. Since day one. He's been constantly giving interviews to any outlet that will listen talking to law enforcement hanging up fliers holding vigils. Doing all of the things concerned family member would do. But will rogers public image is that of terrified brother who just wants his sister to come home in private. The fbi has some doubts about him mostly because he is the one who waited till tuesday to report joyce missing even though he knew better than anyone how unusual it was for her to just ghost. Everyone like she did according to ellen gamers reporting for the baltimore sun around this time. The fbi collects carpet samples from the siblings apartment and asks roger if he'd be willing to take a polygraph which he does. And and the results come back inconclusive. When asked about it. Roger hawks the results up to anxiety or law enforcement trying to mess with him. Which i don't know. I both could be possible. Everyone knows how we feel about polygraphs. Right right as this baltimore. Sun piece goes on to say though even though definitely raising a few eyebrows he is never actively pursued as a suspect and then at the start of spring. A grisly discovery changes everything at around six thirty. Pm on the evening of march thirty first nineteen ninety nine. A woman named leslie brown is having a peaceful night at her home in fairfax county virginia. When suddenly she hears this commotion coming from outside she can't quite make out the words but the tone is more than enough to hammer home. That something is very very wrong. Leslie rush outside and she finds a canoeist there on the potomac river gesturing wildly and yelling that they've found a body washed up on shore and they're begging for someone to call for help. Leslie runs back inside and dials nine. One one immediately. According to a piece in the los angeles times when the police arrive at the scene they find a woman's body length face down on a rocky part of the shoreline still wearing blue jeans and a black turtleneck..

"It doesn't really tell them much. Yeah it's funny. I actually thought about that. Specifically obviously starbucks is like known for their coffee. Go i wonder if do they have a t. on their register. But to your point. I'm sure they had more than one t- like on their receipts. I don't know it will on top of that like it's also evenings so maybe you want something like more chill like tea instead of coffee or something where my mind goes right and i mean the one thing i will say is like eight thirty a short timeframe but even if they found proof that okay someone bought a t. Right around the time she got dropped off. That doesn't mean that it was her that bought the t right like actually doesn't get them anywhere and she could have gone in expecting to get t and something else like. We have no idea what she even ordered. So as the police and fbi keep combing through joyce's movements that night they discover that she left her pager at home and interestingly joyce got one page which police are able to actually track back to a payphone outta hotel near the dulles international airport but they're unable to narrow it down any more than that so the pager proves to be a dead end at some point over the next couple of days the fbi. Questions one of joyce's ex-boyfriends. How reasons of ex i literally have no details about this person. All we know comes from the w. Usa eyewitness news reports saying he was questioned. He whoever he is but that he wasn't detained or anything like the end so just like ticking. A box right now. Because they're getting nowhere. The fbi puts up a twenty thousand dollar reward for information leading to her whereabouts. They also get their first lee when they learned that joyce's wallet with her ins. Id an expired. Credit card inside turned up just a day after she vanished. According to nbc news for a female jogger found joyce's wallet on january tenth in anacostia park the jogger turned the wallet over to the park. Police thinking like whoever dropped it would eventually realize like. Oh crap my stuff's missing and come looking for it. But neither she nor the park police had any reason to suspect that this wallet belonged to a missing person. So the officers didn't take any of the joggers information or ask any follow up questions at the time is park on joyce's way home like does it make sense for her to have dropped at their. No that's the thing it's not an even if it was joyce going there that night just doesn't make any sense like joyce remember. She had a cold. She wasn't feeling super great. To begin with it was already dark outside so going into a park especially this park. It's like huge. It would not be safe for a woman on their own and not to mention. This park is at least a twenty minute. Drive away from dupont circle where we know. She was dropped off right near. It's not even within walking distance. There is no reason for joyce to have gone anywhere near there that night. So at this point police are brimming with questions but the contents of joyce's wallet only add more to the mix. This.

"Night. Joyce is out with one of her friends from work and she told roger they're going to have dinner. They're going to go see a movie and as the night wears on enjoys doesn't come home. Roger doesn't think too much of it. He knows that she's been battling a cold since new year's so in his mind. It's totally possible that she decided to just like crash over at her friend's house instead of tracking all the way home and that cold crappy weather that night and honestly besides she's twenty eight years old. She doesn't need her baby. Brothers permission to switch up her plans if that's what she decided to do. Joyce isn't backed by the next morning. But it's not until monday that roger really starts to worry because that's when he learns that joyce was a no call no show to work that day according to an article in the capital newspaper joyce's a staff attorney at the ins and no one knows better than roger. How hard she's worked to get where she is. He knows there is no way. She jeopardize her career by ghosting on her workplace. Like this. she's not answering her calls. She's not answering her emails. And there's nothing around their apartment to suggest that she's even been there at all since saturday. Nothing's been moved. None of the food in the fridge has been eaten. Everything is.

"One thing that i think we have to bring them of course is the is the terrible pandemic. we've all been through and we'll continue to go through and i think that We were very fortunate that we kind of we wrapped a principal photography about a week before the shelter in place orders kind of came out but we but for visual effects standpoint we had fourteen vendors worldwide and almost every single one of them all started moving to to working from home in a very short space of time. And i think it's it it goes without saying that we're incredibly grateful for all the work they were able to. Do you join this difficult time because we we continue to meet our deadlines in the show came out on time but also on top of that we In particular some challenges the island with faced in an episode seven We were We were intending to go to to look on location to hawaii to photograph background plates establishing plates in texture reference fall the episode where we visited the jungle planet Particularly for the sequence with the juggernaut that was over two hundred fifty visual effects shots and very quickly we had to we had to do an about-turn and to an entire sequence into a fully synthetic jungle environment and i think that was one of the biggest challenges. We had in post production. Because something we weren't able to plant fall. But i think through the you know the wonderful work that the island did led by enrico damn And obviously the library of jungle reference to the island. Has they really turned what was going to be something that we were going to photograph into something g that you really can't tell us as as far as i'm concerned i'm really proud of the work that the teams did try to try to turn that around and really kind of achieve division the dog and andrew can. I came up with the initial designs and to give everyone a sense of this. Could you give us an estimate of how many quote visual effects shots were in the season we were. We were just shy of full thousand visual effects. Shots and i might add. I mean one of the terrific Experiences of working with john farrell. On this whole thing is that we're really trying to blur sort of all department heads and that's partly driven by the schedule. These we have such a short production schedule in terms of the production design. If at all and this is where it's great. You know working with richard esteem really trying to bring all that work upfront front not work that with typically the post production work. We're bringing up front because we need that content for the volume and it really demands that everybody's stay focused in terms of how we collaborate. And what's really wonderful. Is that you know between. Richard myself and andrew. We work rake laboratory and so once we get a design approved once we taking their virtual space we to implement engage the team to create final assets. And the only way we can do that is really you know allowing us to do. Virtual scouts rarely on. So the minute john approves a set we usually have a rake eliminate. Cg model that we can literally start to start the are the scales right and we get answers. You know days into the process versus months. And it's a one way of really short. Cutting you know the whole design challenge process in there because we can just be moved more effectively and we usually during those virtual scouts. We bring in all the department heads so everybody can kinda come in and have a voice. You know like the dp to come in and say you know. I know the way andrew and i had designed a set for instance maybe one of the window. Volumes is in the way of a shot. Can we actually move it now versus discovering that after the fact or even things like scale you know. How far should the space speed. Because we're always trying to be very conscious of our production schedule where we're trying to get the maximum impact for the least amount of builds in. Sometimes we can still capture the original intent of design but minimizing the build without compromising the look. And it's something that you know andrew and i work very closely with john and the other filmmakers through really go in and buy suck you know what is the most effective way of doing all this. Yeah i'd like to add stock. Just real quick It's interesting because i've been asking a number of occasions About the artwork at the end of the credits and and people of of assumed in compensations. That's the all work is done after the fact after the show is finished and we know what the show now looks like which is not the case at all. All the all work at the end of the credits. The chang overseas with his team and under under jones it's done in in pre production so You can see that that the show looks exactly how it was initially designed and i think that's testimony Took saying it's it's it's red that you're involved in a show on this size where you don't do several cost corrections As you get into post production but again because all of a lot of visual effects work is pulled at the pull up at the beginning but also because a lot of the artists that doug uses a perhaps working on him for many and maybe them that they will want models the such an interchange of those assets and those models in the way we work. That's all of those ideas really do exist in last right through the end of production but it's also really a testament to to john to day flown in the rest of the filmmakers in. That's we on changing our minds. Generally if there's something that changes because he's it's out of necessity with the story but but lodge the design libs right from the very beginning all the way through post britian which is rat and i think it allows us to kind of do the sort of volume of visual shots. We're talking about in such a show space of time. And that's what makes everything sort of very fluid in that sense because designs go back and forth you know all the way through shooting all the way through the post production in. It's you know it's a wonderful way because obviously has the story comes together as we get our first assembly of the cup. Sorry ideas may change. Sets may change a little bit and this gives us the freedom to actually massage. Those in john has always insisted that you know if the set that was approved you know months ago prior to shooting. Now he seen in editorial he wants to evolve a little bit That's why we stay involved throughout the whole process doing pain over redesigns as necessary. And it's a really great back and forth so really. There is no production or pre production. It's all one big process. Now thank you so much for joining us. And congratulations on the season. Thank you thank you thanks..

"So welcome. Congratulations on the season. And your emmy nominations. Thank you thank you. Thanks very much. So the making of the series relied heavily on virtual production techniques which is still a relatively new concept for many people. so for the uninitiated richard. Would you begin by describing the process. And why filmmakers are turning to these tools. What's interesting. I think a lot of the tools that we use started out life long time ago. You can trace a lot of what we do by. Obviously shows like avatar in jungle book. That john actually worked on and an lying. So i think what's different about. Our show is the amount of the tools that we pull together but also the fact that it all ends up largely on a on our wraparound. led screens. I think the important part of why we use it is. I think that jon likes to Get everybody most virtual reality to experience while the sets the environments are going to be before we have photographs them and to understand if from a design perspective that lodging if the small enough and if the they invoked the right sort of response from the actors and obviously from the from the creators themselves and to give everyone in idea. So when you're shooting on this stage the actors are performing in front of this led screen. How large is it. Roughly so the volume that we've got is ninety feet long seventy five feet wide and roughly egg-shaped and then it's twenty three feet tall. There's a led ceiling paddle the covering the entire ceiling. And we have a couple of doors that come in to to to That allow us to get sets in and out and complete that complete. The three sixty environment the immersion. So in the in the episode. The jet i The man laurean and grow visit the forest planet of corvus so before we talk about how it supplied in virtual production. Let's talk about the design of the planet itself. I mean i'm sure. The research started with the material itself. But would you talk about Any research that you did and how you conceive a look that started very early on with day because he was very keen on sort of creating a very desolate landscape in all specifically stories are so we always start with sort of the story and character intent from there. I mean you know. Unfortunately we had you know. Fires in the northern california in some of them were very close. Today's home in so that kind of drew the inspiration in terms of this desolate landscape is. He really wanted to create an environment that has been devastated by remain character. That's here so we referenced. A lot of that obviously a ladder research into what devastated landscape can look like and we also lean into quite a bit of course ours films as well as You know in this one the tone of it for dave he was trying to match some of that To sort of draw from the original inspiration that inspired george lucas and so we really heavily research into that and then we kind of adapted it to make it our own. And so for instance. The castle itself You could see is very reminiscent of japanese feudal castles and we did that specifically to invoke those feelings and in the landscape Luli was you know taking off of photography that we did of The burnt forests around northern california in those really a matter of them merging the two aesthetics to create this very exotic environment helps support the character. We did actually go out to the burnt fields. The burnt forest around los angeles to get samples and bring them back and scan them and and ended up using some of that terrible terrible situation but it inspired The design quite heavily as as did the sort of hazy atmosphere. And then would you tell us how you actually created this environment that would then projected onto the the led wall so The the we're using a game engines to to build virtual environments which are used for design development based on doug's concept art that the team to opt in san francisco and We have a team in in los angeles who are creating these virtual environments using Scans of real world objects like trees and rocks and ground conditions and lit by our dp as yvonne and Then we go in and and Scout scout these with a camera and see if they're working as virtual environments Once once you've got the whole environment created the the sky sky psych the forest environment for example the ground condition. And you stage a scene in it you kind of know what you're going to need to build Inside the volume as a physical set and you get more or less. It's like a cookie cutter you stamp out of the virtual environment. The part that's going to be a physical build and then that goes to this traditional crafts. Who are going to bake. Make that physically based on renders from the game engine. Richard you want to jump in here and talk about the work of vilem. Yes so. I think when the workers been approved this been developed by doug an under jones's prudish zion team the department and ultimately gets turned over to. Am that then. Continue to advance those environments. In this particular instance we took it from unreal into island stagecraft at tool set Built out the environments even further They also kind of gathered. Scans three scans in photography from various different landscapes to help Develop the environment. I think what's also important to remember. Is that when we scouts in these environments in in virtual reality you basically with a headset on. It's it's two k. And it's sixty dollars per second for performance reasons but of course when when we hit the wall he's going to be at least twenty four frank. The second largely fifty k. image all the way around depending on what you point a camera so an awful. A lot of work is done in order to make sure that the that the scale stands up on the screen even though It's not always obvious Looking at the before nafta what's being done basically delegating superstars two on the screen so it basically stands up at any resolution with any lens we have in our in our kits and of course making sure the that when the the The physical sets come together with the led. Won't background that. We have just as much control in the in the siege environment that we would have onset so if if bows and special effects to increase the the atmosphere in the smoke in the physical sets. We wanna be able to dial the smoke in and out on the actual three d content on the wall to make sure that there's a nice blend so all of that Controllability needs to be built in and beyond sliders on an ipod so on the day it's as quick and as efficient as possible so a prediction can move as efficiently as they need to While shooting any spices and you used a new version of stagecraft in this season. Would you describe the advances in what you were able to do in season. Two that maybe.
Che Guevara as an Icon
"What is one of the most popular images symbolizing revolutionary and radical politics. That you can even think of for me. It's definitely that image of che guevara wearing a beret looking off into the distance. Are we going into this topic of il-chang give out so the year is two thousand nine and met my very first college party and i'm sherlyn you know relaxing all cool not playing some bebo and some guy walks in with t shirt and immediately. It caught my eye because number one. Cuban and number two. It's gigolo at number three. it's a white guy wearing a chicken. I don t shirt and it wasn't very different from any of the times that i saw ceva anywhere else but suddenly some white kid walking into a party wearing a t shirt had me feeling things that i had never felt before when it had seen shale at his image that grew up seeing china's image almost everywhere growing up in miami. You not really presented with people who are very different from your upbringing so growing up with a bunch of cubans. It never occurred to anybody to put j. o. On a t shirt and walk around with it carmen. And i were both raised. Cuban americans in miami where the perspective of tshuva i would say is generally that. This man was very violent figure in the revolution. It's the very first time. I think that i was confronted. With the fact that somebody else might have a different idea of what this image stands for. So get into the image. The image i'm talking about. I'm sure you've seen countless amount of times. It has been said that it is the most reproduced photograph of the twentieth century. And it is the image of chiang about looking off into the distance very serious. He's got long hair and he's wearing a beret with a single star in the middle. The image is called gabrielle at equal or heroic warrior. Yup well i have never translated that.

The Friendliest Countries
"Is a fun episode. I'm not really sure it'll be on your list and guys this is why specifically. I'm gonna ask you to give us your list on instagram at extra packing peanuts. Let us know the from these countries because this is a term that can mean a lot of things with a lot of people and it's very dependent on your specific experiences in those countries right. Because you know everyone's going to have different experiences that was. That's what's fun about traveling. Someone could go to a country. That's there's someone aspect or i didn't. I didn't see this that friendly. It's because you're obviously having your own unique experiences. I have an honorable mention. Okay and i want this be on the list. And but i'm just gonna put on mention and then move on and maybe talk about a little later but australia. It's on my list. It's pretty high at my awesome perfect and then we can get into australia than that. Yeah we'll get into that okay. Cool well then here. We go each have five. We're gonna countdown again. We always tell you we. When we do the list episodes. I don't know how she doesn't know my so. There might be some crossover. I don't know what's on harris or where it is. She doesn't mind so and you always lead it off ladies first number five. My number five is cambodia. And i have to say that. This is because of one person individually the nicest human. We have ever met dr as. I have said this multiple times on other podcasts. that is boondi and there are other people in cambodia who are really nice too but boondi was driver the very first time that we went to cambodia and you know we have since seen him again. When we've been we've connection on social media you know we're facebook friends. He is one of the loveliest people we've ever met in the world and so therefore cambodia has to be on my list. Yeah he's the i will say. This is the nicest person i've met ever traveling. And i debate putting cambodia on the only reason i didn't was because we haven't had that much experience with a lot of other people. They're the people we have have been super friendly so again. This comes down to like. What are you considering. You know this gut reaction again. It was harder for me to make this list i think. Then he'll is the nicest human we have ever met and the gentlest soul. We've ever met and an absolutely phenomenal individual. That many of you listening. If you've been to cambodia and been to see him reap have used him as a driver before based on us recommending him and he is. Everyone has come back and said. Oh my gosh everything you say about plenty is completely true and you probably even under sell like i. I can't believe how nicest guy so if you go to see him reap. We have a post on our website. One extra peanuts take the two minutes to find it. Get his number and e-mail boondi you will be. It's the best two to three minutes you could ever because he will make your experience. Incredible and I can't wait for the day. That we get to see him and his wife and his family again because they are absolutely lovely people My number five. And i'm going to stay in that same region carry on because i put thailand on and i also have talent on my list but yeah we'll talk about it now just different cultures different people but a lot of similarities. Because you're in the same region and you know it's called the land of smiles and we have spent more time in thailand than than most other countries that we've been to and we have more people there just because the way we've traveled through. And you know everyone is just. They're just happy to to be a lot like there's a there's a happiness that permeates that culture where you could have someone who in our is you know is poor and and has job. Maybe we wouldn't want to do or something like that. And he's sitting on a boat cutting up pineapple as we're on a on a little trip out to this island and he's just smiling so big because he's just on a boat cutting pineapple and it's delicious and we're having a good time because reverend good time. This guy's having a good time. So thailand just overarching. -ly deserves its name. The land of smiles. yeah. I definitely agree with that. It's higher on my list. It's number two and every time we've been to thailand which has been quite a few times as trump said. We spent a lot of time there. One full month just in chiang mai meeting type people. They're always so friendly and we went to tie wedding. not uninterested. area was our friends hometown and we didn't know that many people there because it was her family and her friends of her family was huge. Like two hundred plus people. Everybody was so friendly than we actually went out after the wedding with some of her closest friends and it was just such an experience. Yeah we we've met so many wonderful friendly people thailand okay. So thailand's you're number two. But what's your number four my number four co stabby guy So we have been in costa rica now for two and a half months which is one of the longest times we've ever spent in another country. Of course right. I think this is the longest continuous. We've ever been in another country other than when we lived in japan. Yeah i think so and that being said everyone here is really friendly. And we don't wanna leave. I mean the eighty five and sunny and paul has to do with it. But the i mean all that's great but the people as everyone who's traveled knows. Yeah the people make the travel experience what it is and from the day we got here even actually before we got here. I was looking for a babysitter hours in like this. Tamarind facebook group like so many people are sending me. Hey this person that person you know. I was like wow. Everyone seems really really helpful. And then we got here and not only are people helpful. But they're just overly nice and same thing like heff foster her watch in the ocean and we put a thing on that facebook group again and saying. Hey we lost his watch and all these people were tagging this other guy who like two weeks before said he founded apple. Watch wasn't the same one but you know just random strangers are like trying to help us get this. And that's just the strangers. That's not even the amazing people that we've really bond with probably a lot of ex- ex- goes yeah but all the all of the local costa rican people who are called tikos yep. They are so friendly from the guard. Who is at our condo. Who the hell on how who speaks very little english but is so kind and so lovely and is so engaged with our children like it's the point where like of course we're we're walking a lot more leaving we're walking and he says hello you know like pure vida and what's up my friend but then even in the car leaving and he wants to come over to the car and we put the windows down he talks to the kids. The kids pounds. He is just wonderful. And that's just one person mean our nannies. Here are costa rica and they are lovely and so wonderful and having vitus to a birthday party and bring the kids crafts in toys for them to play on just like welcome us into their lives and it's just yet people are great. It's really nice very welcoming community and yet to the point that wit sometimes wakes up in the morning and he goes. Where's on hell is on l. out at the You know out at the entrance. Where the fords. I don't know we'll run out there to go find on l. First thing in the morning. So yeah i i'm with you. Costa rica definitely a magical place. And i think that when it don't look at my most are looking for the audio heather is blatantly. My list is off. The table have looked at his list. And so i followed and wear his vision by number four. I mean i guess at this point rica on your list and you just tell my number four interest. My number four is one. That i'm not sure i was happy to have this on the list. Because i'm not sure. It's going to make your list or nine and this and australia are very similar to me. In the way that the people like to just enjoy life and that is ireland. Okay yeah i know what. That's a good thought. That's a really is not on my list kind of forgot we went. There wasn't the first gut reaction country to be on my list. But when i looked at a map usually you and i will look at a map just to just kind of spur some inspiration and i pulled up the map when i was going through and i was looking at europe like spain. People are pretty nice. Portugal was really cool. Italy annex saw ireland and mike ireland. Yeah like to me some of the experience. We have an ireland per personify friendliness. Like they just want to have a crack right crack meaning a good time so you know irish are known for wanting to just have a good time. There was plenty of nights. We'd be sitting in pubs. Music would start flowing. People were talking like again. There is really open. Friendly and enj- enjoying life
Malaysian court temporarily halts deporting Myanmar nationals
"Immigration officials in Malaysia have deported more than 1000 million mar nationals and move human rights groups say could put them at risk. Following the February 1st coup. The military carried out in the country, formally known as Burma, Michael Sullivan is following developments from neighboring Thailand. Malaysian court ordered a halt to the immediate deportation of the Myanmar nationals earlier in the day. Pending the outcome of a hearing on Wednesday to suspend the deportation altogether. Instead, hundreds were loaded up to three Myanmar navy ships to begin the journey to a home they fled. Human rights groups say members of Myanmar's Muslim minority Rohingya and many from Myanmar's other minority communities are included. Malaysian immigration officials denied this protests against the February 1st coup are continuing in Myanmar, despite warnings from the military protesters have embarked on a confrontational path. That could lead to a loss of life. If the demonstrations don't end for NPR news, I'm Michael Sullivan in Chiang Rai.
"chiang" Discussed on Very Bad Wizards
"We suggest that you do the same decide for yourself. Decide for yourself. And i think that that is if if chiang leaning anywhere it is who to. Don't don't change who you are just like it's better to be you and you make your own decisions that it is to be sort of completely blinded by the love of god. Yeah decide for yourselves. And i think that's what ethan who's not like the roic character in any way but that's sort of what he's telling people he's being a little bit like the fallen angel he's saying here's the deal you like actually look at everything that's happening in the world and don't just project your desire for meaning and your own individual purpose or your your motives of getting just decide for yourself and i think in that message is the implication that if you decide to be devoted to god. That's fine as long as you're not doing it. In a way that brainwash is you and removes your eyes right right right if you know and are comfortable with the fact that you will all sudden become sort of a robot for god or whatever like that you'll be completely consumed by your love for god if that's what you want then just know that. That's what you're you might be choosing to write. I love that point that you made about like the same questions are still here even with all your questions answered yeah cool. I'm glad you did. I like because it's true like we. You know it's like the nagel point. I was about to say it's like the nagel point like oh we're the universe is so big. How big would it have to be for you to feel like your questions were answered. So you know my thing about like justifying maybe after the fact post talk that it's okay to eat free range free range animals. If they've been given a life that they wouldn't have already had that's just like everybody here to the extent that they are going to be grateful for their existence..
RCEP: What's the Deal?
"Who has spent much time around. Soldiers will be aware that for the purposes of saving time and door baffling civilians. They communicate to a large extent in three letter acronyms. So an armored fighting vehicle is an a an improvised. Explosive device is an and a three letter. Acronym is itself a t. l. a. There are many more some formal some colloquial some veils for cheerful obscenity if journalists employed a similar vernacular one such t. La would certainly be bb. I to denote a story which is boring but important which brings us. And we think we've just about stuck the landing here to a four letter acronym asset and that seems to be the consensus on pronunciation which is going to catch up a few news. Readers or it could be are kept or chip or recap whichever way you say it. The letters stand for regional comprehensive economic partnership. Stop come back at cetera. Sip is a trade deal all seriously this will only take a few minutes also is a mighty big trade deal indeed arguably the biggest ever don. It includes japan. South korea new zealand and the ten members of asean from tiny brunei to immense indonesia at which the unwieldy asset name does make a certain amount of sense comprehensive regional asian partnership being an obvious non runner. This will seem hilarious in about ten seconds. You'll get that. There is a lot going on with all set as is to be expected from any agreement which fifteen countries many of whom don't get terrifically will have been nearly a decade negotiating but it will be significant given that the signatories of set between them account for nearly a third of global gdp. Some oftens have already estimated. That are sept. Could add two hundred billion dollars to the global economy this decade which given how much of this decade is likely to be spent catching up from this year is no small change. The economic headlines are approximately as follows. Many tariffs on imports. Among member states will be eliminated. Some immediately of his more gradually they will be new unified rules of origin which might encourage companies in asset nations to build more of their supply chains with each other and hopefully do lots of what all free trade agreements is supposed to increase production and opportunity reduced prices on bureaucracy and contribute to a climate of cooperation as opposed to competition which is where our sep looks almost as significant diplomatically. As it does economically it is the first time that china has signed up to a multilateral. Free trade deal. China's premier li ka chiang himself an economist by trade has indeed hailed it as a great victory for multi-lateralism and free trade. Fine talk it may be muttered for the second ranked member of the politburo standing committee of the central political bureau of the communist party of china. And it's at least worth wondering. Is this really where china sees the real value of asset because just as notable is who is in our set is who isn't specifically india and the united states india pulled of the talks last year for fear that eliminating tariffs would threaten indian manufacturers and producers however as the leaders have stressed that the door remains open the us flounced from a different asia pacific trade arrangement in two thousand seventeen. I'm going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the trans-pacific partnership a potential disaster for our country. The trans-pacific partnership was one of the first victims of a donald trump tantrum. So there is little doubt about which of assets members will be the dominant partner but it does appear to have been the middle powers of that drove the deal possibly recognizing that it would be preferable for all of them to have china japan and south korea coming to terms rather than blows an optimist a class of pundit who is having a testing kind of you might suggest that this also indicates that china recognizes that submitting to rules-based trade is the next step in its journey to modernity and that it cannot prosper in the long term purely by bullying and menacing a pessimist. Might that this is exactly what china proposes to use this new block for that asset is a means for to keep its friends close and its enemies closer and whether or not that quote is correctly attributable to sun. Suu or michael corleone. The point stands

What 'Arrival' Gets Right — and Wrong — About Linguistics
"Jessica con was a teenager when she first learned that linguistics is a thing. She stumbled upon story of Your Life, a science fiction novella by Ted Chiang. It's all about linguist- trying to figure out how to communicate with well aliens I. Think it was actually probably the first time I heard about the field of linguistics. And then I started college the year I saw an introduction to linguistics curson signed up for it. These days Jessica's field linguist at McGill University in particular I work on. Syntax. Basically the way words combine to make sentences in a few years ago. She got an email to be a consultant on a movie, a movie that was coincidentally based on the exact novella she read as a teenager. I'm not trying to draw any connections that aren't there, but you read about linguistics for the first time in a book that became a movie that you became the the person they consulted with. It's amazing right? It's pretty wild I mean when I first got the email that asks me to work on this film I was really ready to push spam because it sounded very strange and then at some point I saw the story of your life and I wait a minute I haven't thought about that in years and then I responded That Film Twenty Sixteen Sifi hit a rival. So real quick. In case you haven't seen it. Here's the gist. This is Davy arrived. All of a sudden twelve spaceships land all over earth trouble saying. And we don't know why they're not doing anything after landing there. Still no signs of first contact or just the sitting there are at least and so governments around the world are panicking trying to figure out why are these alien spaceship sitting here and different teams are going into try to understand why they're here what they want. And we are following one of these spaceships that I think is somewhere in Wyoming and the. Amy Adams who is a linguist? Production. And her job is to decipher the alien language and figuring out what they want. So today in the show another installment of the Shortwave Science Movie Club what the movie arrival got wrong about linguistics what it got. and. Whether or not Field Linguists Jessica coon has actually communicated with aliens. Honestly it's a tossup. I mattie Safai you're listening to shortwave NPR's Daily Science podcast. So Jessica you were the linguist who consulted on the movie arrival. So give me a big picture sense of what that means like. What did they actually have you do? Yeah. So the first thing I did was I got to read drafts of the screenplay which was really fun because it's a very common thing to do and academia we read things and we give feedback on them but usually not this fund of a scale committee meeting ever exactly yeah. It was very funds so I got to read the screenplay and they especially wanted. Feedback on how linguistics and linguists were represented in the film. So there were lots of places where I gave feedback and they incorporated it into the film. There were other places where they would say, okay just, Kinda yes. Yes. Thanks for your help but really in the end linguists are not Hollywood's primary audience and we're not going to get everything right here and now linguists just get to join like all the other fields of people who get really annoyed when science misrepresented onscreen. So welcome to the club. Sorry, we're not GONNA change that. The movie makers also put Jessica through some exercises, basically giving her a whiteboard and asking her would you do if aliens showed up and those exercises actually informed one of the most famous scenes in the movie when the main character we spanks played by Amy Adams. Schools the guy in charge of the mission about the fundamentals of linguistics. He asks her for a list of vocab words. Essentially, the keywords she was planning on teaching the aliens, that day. Cavaliers responding. Lock. help you understand. So Amy. Adams walks over to the whiteboard and scribbles what is your purpose on earth? This is where you want to get to. The question. Okay. So first, we need to make sure that they understand what a questions. The nature of A. Request for information along with the response then. We need to clarify the difference between a specific you. And a collective you because we don't want to know why Joe Alien is here we want to know why they all landed. In purpose requires an understanding of intent we need to find out. Do they make conscious choices or is their motivation? So instinctive that they don't understand a why question at all and and biggest of all, we need to have enough vocabulary with them that we understand their answer. I love that scene Yes that is one of the great triumphs of of linguistics in the film. I mean this was. So this was one of the most interesting parts of the movie for me because I'm you know this idea of building a base for understanding of a new language is like really interesting and and like the first steps in trying to communicate, which is you know like your thing right? So but it's something that I think we. Just, don't think about into see it in kind of in practice was so fascinating and I'm glad to hear it was like pretty well done your eyes question Mark Yeah I. Think I. Think it was really well done. I. Mean I think one thing that is really neat about this movie and what makes it such? You know interesting and intellectual Sifi is. They're not just typical humanoid creatures. We don't already have some kind of magical universal translator in place, and so we have to figure out how how do they even communicate and will we be able to communicate with them given how advanced they are that they've made these spaceships have arrived on earth I, think it's safe to assume that they have some advanced form of. Communication and that that form of communication should have patterns in it that we could eventually decipher. But thinking about you know, is it audible or is it written or could creatures communicate with smells or we just have no idea what could be out there if it's audible is in a sound frequency that human
Chinese restaurant apologises for weighing customers before ordering
"Restaurant in China has had to apologize. Because it made their potential customers get on a scale. Head. Of sitting down. And placing their orders. Wow This following a national campaign against food waste the A beef restaurant in the city of. Chiang Shah. Place to scales outside its doors and signs that read be thrifty and diligent promote empty plates. And another sign that said Operation Empty Plate, which seems to me to be counterproductive if you're GONNA be fat shaming biggles xactly. Exact on the way in the restaurant I have so many thoughts on this. They're okay they're they're doing this. All wrong. Okay. Unless the reason why they have these is because they want to. It's not worth. The fat people skinny people who order like a sandwich salad and eat had it away right In shaming visit fact I come in you're not worried about him finishing on his plate. No in fact you you would think they would charge by the kilo. So if you're extra fat, you'd pay more for your meal because they know what they're getting into. especially if it was an all, you can eat Chinese buffet.

Tony. Can we get to the bottom of this Roy. The Panthers are the worst team of the big four like the panthers. The heat and the Dolph, the heat, and the marlins are like legitimately good. That I don't know then. Look what we did. Last night basically like I'm GONNA end up playing first base at some point for this team, and we're still going to be over five hundred, the panthers technically a playoff team. Yeah and the dolphins. And the Brawley will be either the dolphins have tour. I don't care what anybody says I will fight anybody until they play a game I'm expecting the marlins will be good good quarterback. That's the dolphins. Well. Dolphins haven't played a game yet gone based off of results the dolphins currently the worst team itself. That's how but I'm I'm projecting I'm looking forward. I'm taking new information I'm projecting and I'm telling you the dolphins are going to be decent this year that it's a compliment to the city. The Panthers are now our worst team and they're a playoff team other than mine. Coming up next wait is the Best Sports City in America. It's really good right now, I'm telling you while turning around I don't even know what I'm saying this sarcastic but I actually believe that me to heat and the dolphins are good.

"chiang" Discussed on The Everglow | Empath's Guide To Happy Living
"Because the reality is when we're stressing ourselves out all the time trying to do more trying to grow our business or get that next promotion were stressing ourselves out to the extent that we're really just killing ourselves. I mean people say oh well you got to look at these icons like Steve Jobs. Look what they did. He's dead and he died young and so in this trip to Chiang Kai amongst all the things I did visiting elephants sanctuaries renting a motorbike riding around the mountain huge mountain which can ride a bike around. I just more than anything. What I remember most is the epiphanies that I was having the clarity of thought I was having and I was so grateful that I had taken the risk of vanishing from back home. Going to Chiang Mai where I was just this random guy by myself with myself where I could think. Clearly because when you're in the hub of life pressure from business clients family whatever problems you may or may not have going on. It is quite difficult to think because you're always processing all of the things that are immediately around you but when you just ditch everything and leave. It's amazing how your mind changes now the mind. The brain is plastic as they say and that means your brain chemistry and the physiology your physiology of your brain actually changes depending on your circumstances if you're stressed out all the time your brain actually changes so that it is ready to be stressed out all the time and it wants to be stressed all the time. If you're happy all the time your brain similarly changes to be happy all the time when you're in a high pressure environment like L. A. or the profession. You're in your brain chemistry. Oh gradually change and not for the better you can start experiencing these micro doses of stress and we'll talk about that later. There's a great book I'm reading in. I'll do a whole podcast on that. It's down the road. But when you go on a trip and you you delete all of these distractions all these stressors. All these deadlines all these pressures. You realize that you can think clearly and reach conclusions that you couldn't otherwise reach back home. And so those two weeks in Chiang Mai I remember fondly because it was the first time I just really run away from pressure now. I've taken a lot of vacations before and I feel amazing but this is the first one. I think where I left where I really needed some soul searching and ask them. I have to ask myself. Why had I taken on these couple of idiots on my in my law practice to help me out and of course it was to grow my practice so I can make more money and whatever but I didn't really need that my practice was going fine. Why did I take on these more complicated cases? I remember when I was in law school. I told myself I'm a non adversarial guy. The last thing I want to do in law is fighting with strangers over money. I didn't WanNa do that stuff. And there I found myself in two thousand fifteen doing exactly what I said. I wasn't going to do and what was happening as a result I was at a breaking point because it wasn't my natural inclination to be fighting with these bastards over money now. I do that to this day for a living and fortunately I become very good at it so doesn't carry that stress that it used to and also to be honest. I don't have encounters with nasty attorneys. That's just not how the business works. Usually the new generation of attorney probably generation and younger were more about. What's the problem I represent my client? You represent your client. Neither will take the client's case personally. Let's meet in the middle and let's fix this but now standing all that. It was an enlightening trip. Just being able to walk around just being able to eat a bag of potato chips and drink chocolate milk while watching some movie from the nineties on TV knowing that that phone was never gonNA ring with some frantic emergency from from some frantic client so while I was making this podcast I actually found this tiny little four inch book that I had written a bunch of notes in random thoughts. Random musings in real time while I was in Chiang Mai and so I thought I would read them or at. Least some of the excerpts too because it's interesting reading them now five years later so let me read them to hear her. See if you can find anything of use to you. I realized that a lot of stress was coming from people wanting things from me example. My Dad wanted me to start bidding on things on Ebay and right away felt my stress. Go up since my plan here and change is to do nothing. Wire two weeks vacation. I joke here's why because they should be at least six weeks a year given by every employer and you must leave town for two of six weeks. If you're a lawyer doctor. He should have two months off and one month off every six months. Time goes very fast. Why it's easier to meet people when you're traveling one. You don't care what people think about you to you're relaxed and therefore more yourself three. You're happier four necessity. You're forced to interact with people you don't know the number. Five travelers have similar mindsets so therefore have more in common.

No we are although I could talk to you about Hans Fictional the rest of the time that we have together. Dr Painting is a professor and author posture preacher. He's written a number of books. He has a friend to the TV institute. Big Friend Friend town this week and teaching It's been my favorite time of the year. It's the most wonderful time of the year so even when we started the training program one of the hopes was bringing in outside speakers Experts in their field but are also churchman. Church women people who who want to to do theology or new tests ultimate cities at the highest level in the academy but can also translate to the local church and we didn't know it was gonNA work five years ago But we brought you back five times so it's worked. It's pretty well and you know this. Our students have just really gravitated towards you. And I've also seen you Avenue now for seven eight years or so You've always been a wonderful the teacher and a good friend. But even as you've been preaching more your church just seeing God used that to shape you into a just a beautiful person into theologian into a real. You're a real person. You know what I mean by the air you're dealing with substantive issues but you're also living In a broken world that we're living in and you're able to speak speak in both of those worlds. Yeah so grateful for that well. It's the teaching works because of hungry people could be up there doing my stick and if people were hungry angry it wouldn't be the same. It's an interaction and so you guys have created something so beautiful here of hungry people who are seeking the Lord and trying to figure out their lives and and so it's annoying to come in and it's been fun part of that so you've been in town this weekend speaking about the gospel of Matthew. And would you say that has been where your focus has been the last number of years. It sounds like yeah so I had the great privilege of doing a PhD. In Matthew hasn't stopped since and I always when I think about Matthew I always think what he says in an esoteric way in chapter. Thirteen that The scribe train for the Kingdom of Heaven continues to bring out of his treasure house else. Things old and new and so we've been studying this book of Matthew for two thousand years and they're still. I've been studying for twenty years and every time I read it I see do things. They didn't see it especially everytime I preach from it one of the things that I've been amazed even though not write articles or books teach. It's when I go go to preach a passage that I come to understand it I think in its fullest way. What do you think that is I wanted to ask you about the the process of rediscovery? So somebody's many. Listen to this like okay. I'm on my Bible Reading Plan and I've done it faithfully the last twenty years. I'm coming up on a book of the Bible. I've Read Twenty Times Thirty Times Forty Times. What is some of that process of rediscovery for you as you walk the same path over and over again? How like where does that come from? Does it never feel like it's just old hat like well. Of course you know. This is what what he's doing here in the Greek and this matthew. This is a typical matthew. Move that he's making right here. Like what does rediscovery somebody no no but but what is But what does it look like. What rediscovery look like? Somebody's spending lots of time in one book of the Bible. Yeah I I think it is a it is a literary and theological Michael masterpiece and the reason. We're still reading it. Two thousand years later is obviously. It's in the Bible. We believe it's inspired. But it is a masterpiece. The reason it's still worth worth reading over and over and and a great piece of literature is one that you've reread. I just wanted to read once. And the more so structured and I always remind students that it by the time matthews written this thing down. He's been pondering and praying and preaching teaching and rearranging and editing for like thirty years. Probably by the time. He's this is is his magnum opus. This is as great piece. Just like we would read You know brothers Karamazov for something over and over and you'll see things in it even more. This is a masterpiece. Sure piece and you never get tired of it. I think the other thing and this is why things I so appreciate about all you guys. I'm thinking of Jan.. How much joy her books to her experience? As a teacher feature I think you'd probably affirm this that when you go to teach you go from passive learning to active learning and so that's what I think is amazing that I'm teaching teaching and preaching for Matthew. That's when I come to understand it more. I think you guys build things into the institude. Were there reversing say. Yeah I think so.

ISP just like what everybody did it just a legitimate monarch at the time the Shaker everybody was into that and it was fun for for a while we was ISP that you started it was called planet Internet Internet so we were doing some dial up stuff It was pretty tough I mean as you know what a lot of the small I SPEC- eventually dwindled down disappeared Bonanza and a couple the just like three or four that I was able to use in early two thousands early two thousand wow so I was already out good but just shed some light in the DELCO game before because back then of course there's is it the more democratize can anybody can try the dial up business or does it still end up in the same bandwidth that the main post how how does that work that business model where it was it's really a simple wholesale retail business right so you get the big pipe and then you dial ups and tried to fill up that type of course you oversubscribing in order to make some money back then the Telcos had no idea what to do with the business of they were just happy well yeah you would get the Internet pipe to them due to connect to an ISP but at that time the Telcos themselves we're not di- espy was icy you would get the lease line all the way to the US and back then you'd be talking to guys like PSI unit and you get every huge news wow there was no Gluco yet facebook at the time how did you hustle to get those those types of attacks because again what does the yellow pages and whatnot how do you get to know them and and have or is that because of the Babson connection you know if it was really the local connection ready so when it came back home called some friends from data neo and there were some leads in just got into the business and it along we tried some other stuffs that I found interesting and then among other things I you know during the years US getting involved with computer telephony it was really interested with you know I the ours and and you know writing code to to to do telephony right banned from that venture I was able to get the connection to a friend of mine who happen to be doing voicemail stuff's at the time got it and from there further connected me to really gun who was the owner of Boscombe cry and from there the journey discontinued in Moscow and just for those kids who are not get barn so when some you know carbon date myself majority time asking this question along with the guest pardon me for that but what what what was your business model and Mas Com that you started with William Okay so the first commercial espn the Philippines so back then win the whole Internet was starting the in some seed money to get the schools connected to this global network at it and to help subsidize the cost of those interns national connection the took on a commercial partner so this was Moscow who basically open commercial service to the public outside of the school because at the time the original seed funding of the Diaz was intended for school so so most grew over the years and because of the fateful moment that I got introduced to we eventually they ended up buying planet Internet and so I keep the boss of and that's how I ended up working for I acquisition right near Exeter I didn't know exited like it wasn't much of an exit yes I'm an that was ready likely ninety s and at that time the smallest species we're starting you know we saw the writing on the wall it's either you become part of bigger one or you just die with Telka starting to come in house that free because I couple episodes go with Christian Blanc era and Jeffrey see we talked about the transition when you get acquired so a lot of it is processes that you have to streamline with the mother company but for you you know as a founder there's gotTa be some ego twisting that you gotta do because if you're used to being shot caller and whatnot you know now you have to kind of figure out where you're going to end up into totem pole how's that for you in that experience and then eventually how what what what transpired with Moscow and you being in it it wasn't that big of a transition for me. I mean I planet Internet this time it was like a five person company also we're getting absorbed into like a seventy percent companies there was naturally much of a clash AH I joined Lost more in the role of the technical side of CD OH GATT until eventually with Dr Game Pass away then that's what I started taking on the more manager build rule wow okay now all right let's let's take our first break when we come back let's talk about when the Dragon was born character let's talk about that more after the break Hey Hustler's let's take a quick break from the episode to talk about a big mistake I did early in my own hustle startup founder that's going all in on my started without having any other source of income you might see that's weird because we talk about going all in a lot in this podcast but allow me to tell you what exactly happened to me Liane Becky my first startup called party foul I resigned from my day job thinking that I'm GonNa get funded when they started winning pitching competitions because I thought I was going to get funded very soon but the reality is took me three years to get funded very broke during that time just because I wanted to go all in I didn't take any side hustle in the bad thing was I was dependent on my startup for my survival trying to grow so I ended up getting a lot of bad deals because that was desperate so in my next startup which is chat block P.

NBA working on relationship with China after controversial tweet
"Lakers are in China Darren Shanghai right now they're gonNA play a game there Thursday morning early our time four thirty our time and then they're gonNA play another game Saturday in Chins in but there is a lot of controversy swirling around something more the rockets GM tweeted last week it would be would it be misleading to say things have calmed down but Adam silver's over there he's in Shanghai he's attempting to deal with it and it's hard to say if it's down or not the original Durham won't Daryl Morey tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong and China and when I say China it's not just the government it's it's actual NBA Fans in China have responded and said they basically cancelled the Houston Rockets. Yeah I which I don't know that's fair enough but it's it's realistic they really have they shut down the Houston Rockets The Houston Rockets have been the heritage beloved team in China going back to Yao. Ming and that tweet is unbelievably incendiary in Hong Kong there's a separatist movement movement and the Chinese are and when I say the Chinese it's not just the government Chinese citizens an NBA fans in China are dead set opposed that separatist movement and so it's caused a gigantic controversy here's a little bit of what Adam Silver said about it this afternoon. CCTV announced that because of my remarks supporting Daryl Mores freedom of expression not the since of his statement but his freedom of expression they were no longer going to air the Lakers Nets preseason games that are scheduled for later this week a and it's not something we expected to happen I think it's unfortunate but if that's the the consequences of US adhering to our values we still feel it's critically important we adhere to those values my plan long has been to travel to Shanghai tomorrow and I plan to attend the Lakers Nets game Thursday night it's my hope that when I'm in Shanghai I can meet with the appropriate officials and discuss where we stand and again put those remarks from Daryl Morey and my remarks in an appropriate context of a many decades long relationship and see if we can find mutual respect for each other's political systems and beliefs but I'm a realist as well recognize that this is this this issue may not die down so quickly Daryl Morey has apologized actually James Harden also made this state apologize you know we love China we love playing near I know for both of us individually we go there wants to twice a year they show the most important love so now we appreciate as a fan base and we love everything you know they're about in in no way appreciate the support that they give us individually and as an organization so You know we love you if you're wondering why Adam Silver has is kind of taken the position that he has he is he's issued a couple of statements this was too and and you know to give us a little more background Shanghai is fifteen hours ahead of us so it's tomorrow morning in Chiang it's Wednesday morning Adam Silver's already there and he's hoping to have those meetings today in his statement that he issued on Tuesday when he was in Japan he said the NBA will not put itself in a position of regulating what players employees seasoned team owners say or will not say on these issues we simply could not operate that way so he is standing up one hundred percent for not necessarily anything Darryl said or tweeted specifically but for his right to say it yes in in that's why and then as you point out there are many many people's very upset in China and we'll see what happens next but you know Michael and I are hoping touring the Games a Thursday morning and Saturday morning it'll be four thirty am both days if you want to get up early you can listen to us or we're going to simulcast those those our call on spectrum sports net too so we're just waiting to see what happens next in the story but we're looking forward to doing those games I said earlier in the show it one thing I've learned about sports and you understand this steve better than most people because you've covered so many Olympics is sports can be a great unifier it really can it can bring people together you can you can see people jumping up and down and hugging each other we don't even speak the same languages so I I'm hoping we can play the games we can bring him to you and that cooler heads will prevail but we'll see we'll see yeah there's a lot of upset people here is Rachel Nichols who's actually in China the conflict with China top of mind for the League office the NBA is actually facing backlash on both sides here they're facing backlash from those who support the anti-government protesters in Hong Kong who feel that silver hasn't gone far enough to support rockets GM Daryl Morey but they're also facing backlash inside China from those who feel that silver has not gone far enough to condemn what more he actually said one of the loudest voices in that WHO's actually hall of Famer Yao-ming who is now the chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association Yao is one of the people but silver is hoping to meet with when he gets to China which will be on Wednesday yeah he sort of he's taking heat from both sides now sober both from both from people think he didn't go far enough to support Daryl Morey and people in China who think he didn't go far enough in condemning them here's Doc rivers this is new uh-huh doc rivers talking about what's going on with the NBA in China hit for saying what we believe we did as we disagree disagree I disagree with everything you say I have the right to do that and I have the right to Silverstone Tom and that's good that's good that's what this is about freedom of speech and and we should always have who consequences for what you say and that's why we get back to the Lincoln Body before you say there could be possibly and that's by the way what we're seeing we're seeing enormous consequences for Daryl Morey exercise his freedom speech and as of now Darryl still the GM of the rockets tillman for t- to the owner of the rockets came out right away soon as Daryl tweeted that and said he doesn't speak with Iraq it's he doesn't speak for the NBA. I have no problem with Daryl does her his personal views I don't think they're gonNA lose his job over this we we shared with you earlier in the show if you don't listen to US regularly we uh-huh Darryl he's been a guest on this show probably ten times he's one of the reasons he's crazy we'll talk about anything and so Adam standing behind him and saying look whether you agree with what Tara said or not he has the right to say it I think probably means I was going to hang onto his GIG but I'm speculating I don't know yeah a lot of that came up over the weekend and it seemed to calm down a little bit but again this story is continuing to unfold and we don't exactly know how it's going to turn out when all is said and done what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the Houston Rockets be what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the NBA be how will the be altered how will that be changed in any way we don't exactly know where it seems to me the one of the things that will be important as if Adam silver can sit down with the Ming who is a great ambassador for Basketball Chairman of Chinese basketball so that could go a long way in mending the damage that has been

Is the new MacBook Pro worth the upgrade? (The 3:59, Ep. 585)
"Tonight I'm about to Chiang. I'm Scott Stein Armed Joseph Kaminsky so apple's Mac pro Michael Air God in slow minor upgrades. I guess they got sort of a quiet upgrade early this week. We finally we have we have them in hand John Brennan Tests. I mean all these upgrades worth it where you thought if you have an older Mac book pro I can see you upgrading but it's not that significant. We'd want to shell out that kind of money right away <hes>. What did you find what their speed us the? The speed test it's definitely faster than previous because they switched from the dual core to the quad core. You definitely see a performance bump for me and my normal day to day. The dual core is just fine. I don't know what other people's uses are right I also I wish they'd put an S.. D. Card slot back in there as well yeah well. It's still it's still like to use how many are there. Yes it is to USB type C both on the same side right and for those of us who while using a Mac book pro now you got to carry these Donald's not everything will fit come upgrade to a higher capacity which ones get the four U._S. species. That's the fifteen inch as the fifteen inches. <music> man that's the that's the up sell Ya yeah seriously. Get your extra ports in there so otherwise this is essentially the same say Max acquired upgrade from apple in terms of hardware and they he added the true tone display to the MAC book. I can't tell the difference I'm sure it looks nice. I guess I guess we'd have to go into a room and just play with the lights and says come with the new upgraded keyboard but they're they're not had significantly different right from what I hear from the people in the lab with me. They're not big fans of the keyboard again with <hes> so moving onto the Nintendo switch light Scott. You actually had a chance to try one of the few folks she I chance to try it. Yes what did. You think so I got to play it for like twenty minutes used pretty much all the Nintendo portable systems and consoles. It feels a lot more like a three D. S. or a to D s type of product <hes>. It's a little smaller. It's not as big as a small as a playstation vita but it's it's a little more compact feels sturdier actually and so I like the feel of it five point five inch screen seem fine for all the games that I try try you know smash brothers and Super Mario Odyssey in Zelda for like a hot few minutes <hes> I love that. <unk> but you're giving up all these extras the switch part of it and that's the part where like as I use it at home I do use the T._v.. For stuff and that for one hundred dollars dropping in price that's great losing the T._v.. Out Capability losing the swap -able controllers in case wear and tear not wild about that but it does seem to be set up as a second device for the home. I know it's crazy hip but parents who played games note. I'm talking about Nintendo has hinted that there might be some way to deal with management across multiple device right. You talked with the Nintendo's browser which is actually his real name. Yes it is. It's hard to keep referring. I know what I mean. What else did you the deep hat thing you learned about? The D pad Yes so deep has a great what about on joy kinds and he wouldn't confirm any plans right now for. Or anything like that enjoy cons <hes> he talked about the the Horizontal Capability Android hines and that was versatile still I feel like you can use the d pad in horizontal mode and do all the stuff that he's talked about. Maybe that's something for the switch pro or some other thing down the line <hes> speaking of which again he wouldn't refer to anything involving a more advanced sequel to the switch reports have said that that's been delayed. Maybe that's next year for now. It looks like going into the rest of twenty nineteen just the light but what was really interesting his when he talked about games I said well what if you share between systems which is really annoying if I keep one docked. Could I just take the other on the road with me is that there's GonNa be some way of sharing experiences more to come on that which I really hope. Is that way to take digital libraries.

One of the teen steals, a walkie talkie, from Tiffany, and the girls chase the group to house and find what appears to be a time machine the girls, learn that the teenagers are time travelers from a distant future who are engaged in ongoing war with a group known as the old timers at the center of the conflict is the question of whether or not the past can and should be changed by future time travelers if you like stranger things you'll love paper girls. They have a lot of similarities, eighties flashback nostalgia, with a touch of the weird and scary over the past few weeks. I've read the first twenty eight issues in since I got back into comics a few years ago that. Seems to be the norm for me. Just binging on an entire series anyway, I recommend checking out paper girls, if you like eighties nostalgia, and time travel
How to get your Instagram account back from hackers (The 3:59, Ep. 572)
"The. Welcome. I'm forgetting, it's the grams testing some new features that could make it harder for hackers to city your count, and hold them for ransom over you have the story. What's, what's this about? Yeah. So a lot of the times, hackers target, you know, Instagram accounts from influencers, or anybody, that has, like a cool username, that's only like three letters long or something like that, and sell it for like pretty high prices, a report from the Atlantic few months ago, talked about how these accounts can oftentimes sell for, you know, one hundred thousand dollars or something like that. But I've also known average people that are not celebrities at all that they're in scramble counts hacked, and it's extremely hard to get it back, most of the time because when you ask to get your password back, they'll send it to an Email address. But the problem is once somebody has your Email has your Instagram. They can change what Email addresses associated with right. And they'll hold it for ransom. Sometimes they'll say, if you want your account back, give one hundred two hundred dollars whatever is that what it goes for obviously, for a celebrity Yam count. It's worth a lot more. But it's average Joe like how much is it? It's like an average person about that much, you know, varies, if you have a really popular account, it could cost a lot more than that, considering how much influencers make from advertise post and things like that. But what Instagram is testing out is these features. So when you try to log in now, if you if you can't get your password, right? Obviously because a hacker might have changed it. They can you can now ask them to send the six digit code to your original Email address. So the one that you signed up for Instagram with which is which can't really change, and they can send it there. Once it goes there and use the six digit code to log, log back on. They will log out all other logging sessions. So then, you know, the hackers on their devices, they'll be locked down. They won't be able to get back in that way. So this is something that's been coming for a long time here. We're getting hacked on Instagram for a while. Now they really haven't done much for victims. But this is a good way to prevent that from happening. How I mean how prevalent is this like how many how many of these? How common is it for you to actually get your account hacked and held for ransom while there's no statistic on it, but last August Instagram did acknowledge in post on their own blog saying, like we've noticed, you know, a rise in this, we've noticed more people complaining about this, but they didn't really offer a solution, then they more. So just gave the standard fare of user strong password and used to factor authentication, which isn't really, you know, proactive on this kind of thing, so. Yeah. Okay was good to hear the Instagram's actually taking some proactive moves to, to help users next Euphemia with world of warcraft ever. Chris quest. Yeah. Used to play a lot of. Wow. And then I stopped because I had other things to do. Well, these massive online roleplaying games, they were kind of the exception, I guess they were sort of there are couple these a handful of these games back in the day. But now it's quickly become the norm. You've got you know games like anthem. You've got games like see the's course four night. These are games that. Expect to go on forever as and host of the annual update of the franchise using reliant DLC relying on. The ability purchase digital goods upgrades. How do you feel about that? Because if this is a, this is sort of a way to our bleed you of your money more. I mean they don't have to make a whole new game. And it's they save money that way, also people get new content without having a bye straight up new game subscription fees associated with that. And they can just keep making money that way without as much of the work. I mean obviously like all games, no matter how good they are like we'll stale and they'll make like a new one eventually Yalo to was supposed to last forever. Also. And it kinda got stale. And then they came out dabble with three, which is also really good, same thing. Doda dodo is a game that lasted a really long time and then they came Doda to destiny is a good example. Yeah. Go on for why then. Well destiny. Also didn't have the best eventually get stale. What do you think four nights? We're not gonna there's going to be a fortnight to eventually, like, I there's no doubt that there will be. All right. Last. Check out our latest feature. With gives you an inside.

"So really Ed, what's what's been your experience with train travel in Bangkok? And because this is where all the main lines terminate, but what's been your experience with train travel in Thailand. Okay. I have not taken the train a lot, but once I realized how much cheaper was than airfare, I have taken the train from Bangkok to Chiang by a couple of times I've taken the train out to China berry and I've also taken the train down near movie. So I took the train down there and then I got off the train and we took a boat to smoothly. So I've probably been not that many. I've probably been five, six, maybe seven train rights. It's cheap as before it runs on schedule. I don't know if I would say it's super professional, but it's it's, like I said, so many type. It will rely on it that it's a, it's a, it's a very consistent. I think we're. Liable system like the trains show up when they're supposed to. They leave when they're supposed to their frequent. Like you know the, there's just trains coming and going all the time. And I think it's a unless you're in a real jam or it's like a super holiday. You can almost always get a seat and so the the train trip that I did to Chiang Mai think twice. As you mentioned was the overnight train. I actually recommend this because I don't know exactly your experience. I can't remember the pricing structure, but if you pay for first class, you can. There's a place few to lay down in sleep. So essentially you just get on the train, maybe eight pm or nine PM and you just sleep the whole night..
