"And then in eighteen o. Nine changsha is under attack by the portuguese and junk bow arrives with ships to aid her. When the portuguese ships six of them to be precise round the corner and start firing on changsha and jungle and then ninety three ships from the chinese fleet joined. The portuguese and blockade junk are trapped in this bay for about two weeks. There's a standoff. Two weeks finally. The head of the chinese fleet gets frustrated. The nothing's happening and so he sets forty three of his ships on fire. Oh collazo and pushes them toward the pirate exactly turned his own ships into weapons. Y- pulled a francis drake and he's hoping it will work and he's hoping it'll set. Pirate ships on fire now. The pirates are better than that baby divert. The fire ships. Tow them onshore. Put the fire out and use them for firewood. Except for two of the fire ships that are still floating in the bay when the wind changes and they are blown back into the chinese fleet light to of the chinese fleets on ships on fire and taking advantage of the wind. And that distraction. Junk powell and changsha break through the blockade and escape as a result of this whole showdown. The chinese fleet lost three ships. And at least seventy four men. The pirates lost zero ships and forty men. How it was just things like this keep happening. They're very clever. They don't make stupid decisions and working together as a team. They can outsmart pretty much every fleet that comes at them. They are unstoppable. But as the years pass jingsheng can tell. The tiger turning the european powers are coming in and they are much harder to combat than the chinese fleet. Having seen many of her pirate cohort suffer. The fate of execution at the hands of the british her portuguese she decides to retire. See leads the delegation of seventeen women and children to guangzhou and negotiates with the ching representative amending bilingual. He agrees to her terms. Freedom twenty to thirty ships that they can keep it in private fleet. Wow and none of their pirates will be punished or executed. What he agrees which is amazing. Wow this is the most notorious pirate in history. That's very trusting to like that. He believes that she she can just say to everybody. And we're done. We won't be pirates anymore and they'll all just stop. i mean. He must really have believed that she was the boss. Yeah and that. She was honest. Right honesty among thieves. Or she's just so powerful that he doesn't dare say no. I mean i you know what. What's the unitive here. It's an amazing interaction. And i would give almost anything to be a fly on the wall and see what happened there too. But the end result is that she and chung house render seventeen thousand three hundred and eighteen pirates two hundred and twenty six ships and retire to the country. Wow and was nobody really. Nobody was tarnished. All of these pirates simply retired. Many of them are absorbed into the chinese military including junk bao. Pu becomes lieutenant in the chinese navy. Why why tell us i really. Yeah yeah yeah wait. So they all lived happily ever after. Well she sure did she died at sixty nine years old bleeding relatively peaceful life after the death of chung pow. She was allegedly proprietor of an infamous gambling. House somewhere in guangdong so by all accounts she led this very successful pirate life and then led a very successful post retirement life. She had a lovely financially secure retirements. I happy i mean it really does feel very made up and book but it's what actually and again i i just love the way she breaks all these narratives. I love the way. She's changing the way we think about what leadership quite in line. And and what. The end of piracy my. They might just get tired and be like how much smarter she just kind of. Pay off your pirates with a few ships in a gambling house if a few of them military positions and let them fight on your side as the becoming threat to china. Let's fight them instead of our own. Pirates yeah and just leave them alone. I mean it's fairly odd. I like it. You know any woman who can bring together seventy thousand pirates. That's a skilled negotiator. Now too bad. They didn't put her in the government. Like maybe she could've saved. Yes could she of accomplish raoult's one thing. I had not thought of that. I find totally fascinating. The doctor goodell points out is where she acquired those skills Her business acumen like her ability to negotiate and her political savvy all comes from her role as a sex worker where she was involved with politicians and government officials and businessmen of varying ranks. And so she a lot of street smarts and she used those to her advantage which was really important to arise as pirate quyen..

"I think it's really interesting because i don't think she initially had a plan beyond just wanting to be in charge of this pirate federation but she very quickly developed a strong set of codes like a code of laws for her federation. She creates a pirates code. That is extremely different than the pirate code in the west. This pirate code is very much not guidelines they are actual. Rules will be held to them on pain of death. No disobedience will be tolerated any pirate giving his own orders or disobeying those of superior was to be beheaded on the spot so.

"There are also japanese korean vietnamese pirates in japan. They were known as whoa coup. The woke who weren't just of japanese ethnicity. They beat korean. That could be chinese. It was just the name that the japanese gave to pirates who operated in the region but the taste on dynasty was an incredibly powerful group and they used piracy to their advantage to maintain a prominent presence in the region and so a lot of chinese pirates developed relationships with the tastes on dynasty as a means of learning more about higher see and how they could be most effective negotiating with governments and different types of officials. And how that works in reality versus sort of your imagination if you will for change she. The connection vietnam was not just that a lot of the pirates that she oversaw had received instruction from the taste on dynasty but also that it is the location where her husband is killed. Some say he was killed by members of the dynasty. Some say he was killed by natural disaster. Just off the coast of vietnam. There's no real concrete. Evidence of what happened to chang ee in eighteen. Oh seven he's dead and the leadership of the entire pirate confederacy is up for grabs. Changsha immediately takes control and she solidifies that control by banding together with her stepson. Junk bow was kidnapped as a teenager by his eventual. Adoptive father johnnie and became the adopted son of this pirate. King and goes on to become king shows second husband. Eventually wit stepson becomes husband. Her stepson becomes her husband. Okay this was a really smart move. They seem to have been genuinely fond of each other. But also it's a really smart political move because he's the era parent and she chose him because of his loyalty to chiang e and the idea that the crew members were also really loyal to him and she figured that by marrying him she could further secure her leadership role adoptive relationships. They're really really common. Almost the norm among pirates. I mean how you build your dynasty. Is they believe in chosen families. Yeah and that makes sense. If you need to know how much differently could most of the major royalty houses gone. If you could pick someone who was good at the job. Just your kid. So tim show takes over as commander of the entire fleet. Her stepson is now commander of the red flag. Fleet ching is in charge of the entire pirate federation by that point she commanded over eighteen hundred ships a massive jump in the number of ships in her fleet. Commanding seventy thousand men and women crazy. I mean is. it's mind boggling. it's a it's an empire of the i mean she's an empress it is she really is but it's more to me. This is one of the most fascinating parts. This is totally destroying our narrative of what pirates are when we think of an effective pirate. Captain a good pirate leader. We have a very specific image. Our mind this is a macho masculine leader who is pearson strong and scary It's more about bravado and physical strength and apparently what actually really matters in. This style of piracy is management skills. She's a cpo yeah. He's managing this enormous workforce. But do you think he was scary. I'm usually had to be riad. She has to be a fierce scary warrior. Pirate income's really good at. Hr has to know how to manage people and she's running a business. I mean she is managing this huge enterprise that is scattered all across the ocean and she is so effective at it that she is unchallenged. For ten years. Yeah a pirate bureaucrat. Yeah that's an this is not how we think of pirates It's still a very swashbuckling career. Maybe by by eighteen o five. Like i said it's like a hundred years after the atlantic pirates. They've professionalized they've figured it out and just like the reason that blackbeard got an isolated off the coast of north carolina's 'cause he didn't have spreadsheets. Put together right. Maybe she just hacked piracy accurate it out. Well clearly i mean she. She was spectacularly successful And i think this really also does demonstrate the clear major difference between western piracy and eastern piracy We i think especially in the last few years We've been rewriting. The narrative around what pirates are right when growing up pirates. Were this very chaotic dangerous. Desperate yeah you know they. They were the bad guys. And that's what made them fun. And now it's become much more popular to talk about. Pirates as this democratic nation state right this floating utopian ideal jawa of equality and as dr goodell points out. That's true to varying degrees. There is a lot of democratic ideal going on in a lot of these pirate ships although she spent a lot of time reminding people that they were still bad guys. The these were still murderers. Were rice people. This isn't a utopian ideal that we should aspire to as humanity but the lawless wild outlaws of the movies or this utopian democratic ideal are not the model for this type of piracy in the south china sea. This is not a democratic model. This is extremely authoritarian. This is extreme hierarchy berry stratified layers of power here. She's at the top. Everyone knows where they stand. And you don't get out of line now. That's extremely chinese right. this is sort of confusion. Ideal chur piracy hierarchy. Border obedience clarity That makes her success even more striking to me because she really is in control of all of this. She's the boss and the fleet sinks sir sales based on her leadership. Yeah so the fact that. She was extremely successful that they were. Almost unstoppable for a decade is pretty astonishing. She really must have been an absolute genius her job..

"Who lived and still do often live on junks but all along the coasts of china and south asia and are mostly fishermen and while she is working in this. What may have been a floating brothel in eighteen a wine as a sex workers when she met ching e who was a notorious pirate he felt immediately in love with her at least according to legend and decided that he wanted to marry her and she accepted on one condition on their marriage she would get an equal share of his pirate fleets who and he agreed so at their marriage she takes over approximately three hundred ships. Then that's a pretty big leap three one who has not been a pirate or or yeah and she immediately begins maneuvering her way into a leadership position. I mean she must have this incredible forceful personality to be able to pull that off. Oh absolutely and i think that's one of the most remarkable things about her story in this is going up and a lot of our narratives about piracy about women on the high seas about where you gain. The skill sets to be ineffective pirate captain. A whole bunch of stuff is about to fall apart for a score. The region was very conducive to piracy because of its complex coastal geography which allowed pirates to kind of sneak in and out of areas and evade capture from government officials. Lots of little inlets and hidden coves everywhere. Ming very hard to patrol and to very easy to disappear. Come out of nowhere attack disappear again. There is also a lot of territorial disputes among the seaside states of the region. And there's a ton just a a massive volume of vessel traffic passing through the south china seat and there's plenty of room for pirates to take advantage of this chaos and really rich rewards while these military navy's are paying attention to each other instead of one really important difference that we need to understand between east and west here was really crucial to chink. Shows rise unlike in the west in south china there was no stigma attached to women being on board a ship or being bad luck for ship on. That's very much a western cultural tradition. So this enabled ching shih to to really rise through the ranks of of pirates in the west. We have this very established pattern as anyone who seemed pirates of the caribbean knows. That having a woman on board is bad luck. Yeah that is not a thing in the east. Nobody's here's sword there. Lots of female pirates there are and especially once ching shirt takes over. There is a lot more gender equality in the piracy game. Oh but there has never been the sort of gender segregation on board ships that we see in the west interesting though. Of course there's obvious lots of misogyny and sexism in general in this area. It's just regular old sexism not special novels that means she can rise through the ranks as herself without the pattern that we see with a lot of female pirates in the west of i they pretended to be a man until they took power She's dressed herself from the very beginning so by eighteen. Oh five changsha is functioning sort of as equal to her husband. She is commanding a large part of the ships in their fleet. And she is the leader absolute over these ships. She's not subservient to her husband. She is in charge and she can see the the infighting that's happening within the pirate community where they're attacking each other and taking each other out is making them very vulnerable to the increasing attacks by western forces. The portuguese navy. The british navy are starting to become more and more heavily involved in this area. She can see the writing on the wall and knows that it is either band together or be destroyed and shows like the buddha of the south china seas she. She's like an ambassador. I mean she is incredible at getting people to talk to one of their getting them to see that they're all on the same side benefit to them to band together and so by eighteen thousand five. She organizes the pirate community and forms. The guandong pirate confederation is a. It's a loose organization but a strong one and pretty much every major pirate group within the entire south china. Sea have all agreed to give up a little bit of their own autonomy and answer to a higher authority who benefit all of them. Boy now there are six flag color groups on paper. Her husband controls the red flag group. Really chinchillas in charge of a major portion of that but she's the one who has formed this confederation and she and her husband are really the de facto leaders of this entire group of all of the pirates in asia.

Think they're really interesting. In fact bottoms. Up hard liquor. My comcast's tarot cards in it. Coming up in the fourth issue so check it out. What can we expect. If i continue that good things from what they ching says and i do find Terror to be interesting. Even if i don't do it and i think it's incredibly similar to this in that you essentially ask a question and you get three inputs similar to the three inputs. We were getting here of what was it. The transform the prisons and changing line and changing line. So it's kind of similar in that way. Here's three inputs. we're putting whatever. The card is In relation to the other cards And i want to give that a good old eight. I think it's a good tool to reflect more so than tell your future and now seeing this thing i want to say i'll give this a seven. I think i like the cards better than i do. these poems and lines although i don't know them as well nor do i know the cards that well but if i was going to put one let's say in a comic book i'd probably go with patera cards instead of aging oracle but who knows maybe Maybe my next comic book series. We'll have the itching oracle instead. But yeah i think it sounds really cool. I might even try it again. with my fiance I think she knows about it. Actually she. she knew a lot. But i told her. Don't tell me anything. I don't wanna now so Yeah i'd say it's seems pretty cool all right go next. Yeah no it's pretty high up for a guy who didn't want his future to be told i'm gonna go i will. I'm kind of debating between. I'm gonna to things on scale why not. I'm gonna take journaling. That i've been doing a lot of morning pages recently just to kind of give myself a little extra some idea generating moments and then aside from journaling would also take the cards like a regular deck of cards that my grandmother. God bless her soul. Rip was not really close to her but she taught me how to tell future using regular deck of cards and she was a weird lady that was also putting telling future people and you know she was. She really believed in like this magic abilities to she had so actually was very obsessed with telling future to myself on a regular deck of cards and just seeing what's happening in my teenage life and it was very like just not productive behavior. It was the instagram of for me the time so i think i'm gonna put journaling. What's happening right now. Is like shout out to older riders. Lake if you ever feel a stock do it like it's ten like just the right timing journaling in the morning when your brain is nice and fresh you just go out there and you just start writing anything and then maybe just maybe your brain will give you like an idea for something and you can use that time to develop that idea. I really am happy that i came back to morning pages which are originally. What does it come from. I think it's from the war of art. But i'm not sure email us at the email address.

Well it's tell us more. I'm joined by the ceo of china dialogue isabel hilton and sophia. Yan telegraphs correspondent in beijing to regular voices on monocle. Twenty four welcome back. Good morning tea both. Good morning isabel. If i could begin with you just explain to us how the communist party came about. Well the the first meeting of the communist party the one. We're celebrating although mao. Actually when he was asked couldn't quite remember the date so this date is slightly arbitrary It it was twelve people Twelve chinese delegates one soviet and one common tern representative who met in the french concession in shanghai for a few days until the shanghai till the french secret police took an interest. They then reconvened on a boat on a nearby lake and that technically was the founding meeting the ideas themselves had been swirling around pretty much since the fall of the qing dynasty which was not the ching dynasty that the the last imperial dynasty china Phalle as a result of quite another revolution which which the communists had nothing to do with But the the swirl of ideas.

Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu, Book Review
"I had for you the book the dow de ching by loud z and actually have two versions of this. There is the first translated by stephen mitchell and then another one which is by dc. lau before. I talk about why read translations go to chat about the dow de ching itself and the author lousy. This was supposedly written or at least created somewhere between six hundred to two hundred bc. And there's two versions of who it is and what this is. There is the more traditional version which it was written by one person lousy and that he was a contemporary of confucius this place at the back in time closer to the six hundred to four hundred bc. There's some mythical stories on the origin of him saying he existed two hundred years like he was a some semi multiple type of person. And then there's the more modern version which is scholars looking at saying We're not exactly sure that this was written by solely one person and the name themself loud z. Can actually be translated to something like the elderly. The old man the sage and so they think it was more written after the time of confucius almost as a backlash to it not a backlash in the sense of the essential shrunk z. But more of something that came afterwards and then it could have been written by many people and has just one person as the traditional rider such as harm in the grape myths and this was more a bunch of things put together. And it's not exactly certain that it's like one person ridden at one time. The dow de ching itself is translated. Something like the way of integrity or the text on the path of virtue. Something like that. And this is one of the fundamental texts of taoism and it was the first and probably the most well known as well and so therefore lousy is the most northern of the towel west masses or the towers sages. this is written in the style of eighty-one versus and each verse has somewhere between four to thirty lines. Most of them hovering her inbetween that sort of eight to sixteen period.

Eloy can date for us today but then trying to build a right map for the future as well. Well just thinking a little bit about roy. Bap as we say voices definitely maturing.

I'm we're seeing businesses looking at it in terms of conversational marketing and being part of the digital strategy site Why do you see the biggest opportunity for voice at in the digital business at mcdonalds. Yeah i think i'm right now. We have to look at how consumers engage voice. I am. And i think it's fantasize the moment we say as i can engage platform across say looking at kind of our website. Very similar kind of model is how someone would maybe come into to greet the brand of mcdonald's and then how we can then hand off to of digital products am oversee the navan bay get to digital ordering some point but we need to make sure that seamless some friction as customers the Now off i could How do we get people engaging with the skill and then hand david to a more established digital products because mcdonald's is really convenience water from we've got on mike Mentioned after and think voice has a way to integrate nicely with with apps in the future.

The Chinese Immigrants Who Built America
"Workers did not come sir haphazardly. From around the entire country of china they came ninety percent maybe even more from a relatively small area four counties in southern china near hong kong near macau in the early eighteen hundreds. This area was rife with conflict civil wars between different ethnic groups. The opium wars waged by the british. People could even watch the battles on sea. Between the chinese and british forces from the shoreline and in this war-torn region word began to spread about an opportunity in a particular region of the united states notion of california being go mountain became embedded and became legendary. They heard the glorious stories of wealth from just going over there and picking up gold nuggets in the streams of california soon. Many young men from this region set out for california a lot of them intended to one day. Come home sometimes. They were married. Just before say ritz. Leave because their parents wanted to make sure that they return but once they got to california there were some who were very eager and homesick and wanted to return. They had wise or sweethearts back in china and they wanted to be with them or with their parents. Others were much not so philly hill. And i so conventional but liked the money that they got in the united states the latitude or freedom. Young men van -joyed in the wild west there is lots of opium there is prostitution and there was work to be had including prospecting for gold. Which though ching notes it's draped in romanticism. Now was difficult dangerous. Work it involved moving earth using explosives and when the gold rush was winding down.

The Six Day War: The Waiting
"This episode. we're going to walk right up to the brink of war. And when i think about such terrifying in awesome event i think a lot about the courage bound up with the needs of the hour is fascinating idea to me. I mean where does it come from this capacity within the human spirit to overcome the rational mind tells. You is a terrible chance of survival. Not only that. But i think a lot about the courage embedded in our history about wien durrance which it takes to consistently over come. The obstacles life puts on our way in pursuit of the things which we believe our most sacred and when i started to do a little bit of research about what courage actually is. I found that in western culture. The idea reaches its first crystallization in plato's early writings and they're he calls it a sort of endurance of the soul. And you know despite the fact that we in the greeks parted ways long ago. If anybody makes the rich it's certainly plato. And that's a very jewish notion that courage is an endurance of the soul that pure essence the embodiment of the divine element within human existence. Is what gives us the ability to overcome all the challenges physical emotional mental and even spiritual know of. It's not a surprise that the origin of the word in latin is from coal. Right meeting heart. That somehow courage means that you lead from the heart that the head we'll get itself wrapped up in fear sometimes in fights paralyzed in the face of events in its ability to make a decision. But you can rely on the heart to know and push forward another piece of what courage is or that i found in my research at least actually comes from a completely different culture from the dow de ching out zoo and he says from caring comes courage. Where do we get courage from. When we feel that that which matters to us most is under threat. Think of the mother bear defending the cubs. Think of the amazing things that were all capable in. The name of love is a very important idea because it tells us that the powers of the human spirit don't always find their most powerful focus within the mind sometimes like i said the heart has to lead the
Qualcomms incoming CEO on what he really thinks about Apples M1 Macs
"Welcome cristiano. Thanks for joining us on the podcast today. Very happy to be here. Obviously you had some big personal news. You renamed the new. Ceo starting to stummer congrats on that wall. Thank you so much. Incredible privilege for me to be named seal. I'm very honored butter. Yeah we'd love to hear a little bit about What are your first priorities. Going to be as the incoming ceo. Weren't you begin. A lot of people. Ask me this question. Would i like about about this transition. We're doing a qualcomm. This is a story of continuity and it's about keeping qualcomm. You know technology. I company company continue to lead the pace of innovation but having said that We have been doing over the past few years really transforming the company into beyond mobile in oh always had a very strong in mobile business our core business also the licensing business but we started to grow into automotive starting to grow into analog with our ephron sorta grow into the beginning of that so the priorities will be continued to execute on this incredible opportunity. We have ahead of us. Which is five g which is also making telecommunications or communications in general no longer unique to the mobile space but across every other industry and really capitalized on that opportunity. Cristiano to that as you take on this role what are some of the biggest challenges facing qualcomm. Wh what keeps you up at night. The number one challenge we always said in. Our businesses is very unique. We have to reinvent ourselves every year. We have to win the flagship. You know over and over again every year so you know i think all of us qualcomm. It's about making sure hours was focused in driving technology roadmap to become complacent continued to drive the roma ford. And you know right now. If asked me what keeps me up at night right now is supply chain grads as having the semiconductor industry. I think it's the result of a lot of success in general about an acceleration of digital transformation across a number of industries. But this is causing a lot of stress as the supply ching was not prepared to deal with the growth. And but you know we're navigating a very happy to the position we have right now. When is the supply chain issue going to end like. Is this something that gets resolved. Pretty quickly or is it something. That's going to take a long time until like samsung and tsmc. Some of these other companies can build mark factories. No look if will get better at the end of this year we have line of sight and even our scale We're very fortunate very well position. And we have line of sight of this going to get result with entity or but you're correct Part of solving this problem is to a celebrates didn't build out more capacity and that is about building buildings in new clean rooms in new equipment. The way to think about that shara is When depend hits There was an assumption made in general across the industry that that the capacity for semiconductor. You know for if especially if there will be recession given pandemic mike you know was it was good in the reality. What we saw was the opposite the enterprise. Transformation of the home people buy new computers by new printers. New wi fi systems upgrading broadband companies had to connect their assets. So we saw celebration of. I'm not in digital transformation across the board Paper money disappear. That's people started digitize. You know everything payments Even a small business and we always said the mobile has been very resilient five g we said Into very beginning we state our five g numbers even the beginning of the pandemic said. If i've transition is still going it's important. We ended the year the high end so all those things happen for a capacity that was not put in play for growth. And i think we're just seeing you know the effects of of demand in supply. But the manda will catch up with Supply supplier vice versa towards the end of this calendar year one area. I'm really interested to hear about is the pc market You know obviously this is an area that had tons of demands over the past year for laptops and other devices report working from home call comes made a big push in putting your mobile chips in. pc's We saw apple. Come out with. Its m one powered max which proved to be extremely popular How is demand for those m one devices. Impacted your focus on pc chips. Hasn't your computers more and demands like what sort of impact has the m one had on akam pc. This days is one of my favorite topics. Conversations finger for discussion look rented and talk about the specific demand. For 'em one. This is a great opportunity to talk about the trend so the pc was being transformed and we always believe welcome that you know. They'll be conversions between mobile nbc and mobile became the bigger platform. They're more smartphones. Abc's to develop. Our eco-system is driven on the mobile side. And we believe in that convergence. That's where we started. You know several years ago. I think more than four years ago with microsoft on this journey of windows on snapdragon in now recently with starting to see snapdragon on chrome os in chromebooks then the pandemic hits and would have been hit. It change certain things forever. And i am super excited about this because like if you're talking to me from a pc right now. And i'm sure you are you. And roger. b. C became a communicator device. And as people make phone calls they started make a teams called zoom. Zoom became a verb in many languages in c. now is connected became a communicator device. Camera become really important. I'll do a multimedia became important. You doing you take a break. Watch netflix the future. With five g connected disease are going gonna watch Not only video but gonna play stream games with ex cloud an amazon luna luna or google stadia and all of that and then on top of it people. That had a workstation are home. They don't have a workstation to have their laptop but using five on demand computing. You'll get access to any application that you can run on the cloud computing platform of the cloud so the pc's completely transformed in apple switching to a m one with an arm instruction set just validated at transformation. Start moving developer as fast paced. So we're more convinced an ever. Conversions is going to happen b. C's going to be a great opportunity for expansion on snapdragon and it's that's one of the first things i did after being announced to co elect was to do the acquisition of nubia s. We believe there's an opportunity for us to lead into cpu performance as well as we start to think about this complete transitions of pc to associate. So let me let me ask gonna fall on that. Because i think we might have a new but one thought on this question about apple versus talk about the long-term opportunity but were you frustrated by the fact that you have been pushing snapdragon power laptops for a couple years now. That have really gained a lot. Traction while attention than apple comes in with the san juan and one powered mac guy huge buzz postal raving about these things whereas the other snapdragon laptops will ask. We have not really gone. The best to reviews was some frustration. That did you get to go back to your team coverage thick how you do this. I'm just curious your thoughts. On the the the different reactions that though snapdragon lockups had versus those and one. Max no no not at all i. Here's how answer this question roger. We knew that we started this journey. And this journey about a windows for example which is being running on x eighty six. You know Forever when needed to introduce arm extraction sets to windows and we work with microsoft and we knew that we're still building this journey as an example for example In this summer we're gonna now. We're celebrating that you know that next latest update for microsoft windows which announced support a sixty four. Bit emulation on orm in wish starting to see the very first time the enterprise ice laptops. Hp just launch commercial. Enterprise laptop with into snapdragon. So we're at the beginning of the ramp in the way we see the apple lounge. It's a great tailwind. Because what apple did by lounging does not only validated that transition but you know moved developer ecosystem the difficulty that you have when you try to introduce a new instruction set on the pc and this is not new to to apple. I think they've been to those that. That transition twice if you look at their history and then maybe have tried in the past trying to pass the longtime ago with a windows rt and and that really only works. When you're no longer have a second class you know a platform is just the great windows. Experience in every application is gonna run in. You're going to be able to keep everything you had a windows. Any wedded new coming from mobile platform in in. We believe we're now getting to the end of this journey in what what apple did which really help brother ecosystem. Apps apple helps microsoft basically create the resolve within developer system to start doing arm native apps going forward so my answer to a question is super. Please we're super excited invalidates. You know that bats. And i think that's going to happen Not only within. You know the apple wicca system but within windows as well as google and no question when we announced a new via acquisition if you look a press release was incredible as a parade of everybody to mobile nbc segment including microsoft in google in the saint press releasing. This is great. You know so. We're excited about that. Yeah i wanted to dive a little bit more into nubia You know you guys pay. I think one point four billion for this company started by former apple engineers. Basically you know why. Why do you need nubia okay. I'll you know i'll tell you. The story in this has a lot to do with the conversation we just had about. How welcome see some. The industry transitions in how we execute on them. So the story is if you remember back in tweet g. into feature phone days and the blackberry we knew as we brought four g and mobile broadband to the seller space. The will have to become computer. She's gonna have a broadband so you need to have a computer in your hand to make use of the broadband and you're going to have a prosser we're gonna run of have an application and In we knew at that point that you didn't have a high-performance processor for battery powered device we could not get that from the arm roadmap to so so we basically put together a cpu team and we build if you remember. Scorpion was very first. Gigahertz clock. cpu in a battery powered device After that crate in debt drove the absolutely majori of the smartphone platform across. You know that time you know indoor it was growing to other oh s.'s. At the time and clearly it was squawking was the forefront really creating a mobile computing platform with our own. Cpu
Street Photography Assignments With Valrie Jardin
"To welcome back to another episode of the podcast. I'm your host frederik van johnson. Today i have the honour of sitting down with a really good friend of mine. She's a minnesotan parisian. Who introduced me to the amazing world of paris and street photography. You know who i'm talking about. Is the one the only vata the although get going in french after the after that is competitive woo that's bs. That can get you out of trouble. It's good you know your book before. We started the interview. It was really good to chat with you by the way you and i haven't spoken in forever and a day. We are catching up. Live on the podcast. So we're going to just meander and talk about all things valerie and street photography and everything else so welcome. You're intra treat. People ching up several years several several. That's crazy is crazy. So let's talk about this before we dive in. I have a a bone to pick with you and parisians in general all right here goes you guys have infected the american lexicon with without further ado. I keep hearing that everywhere. I go just that phrase without further ado. It's rampant on youtube and everywhere people feel like they have to before they can transition to what they really want to say they have to say without further. Ado yeah just so. That's my rant of the day. Everyone is within the sound voice. Stop saying without further ado or stop saying what's the other phrase gets me. Can i be honest. I can't sorry so everything you said before. That was a strike disregard that so now we're going to say yeah it'd be honest. Yeah right right instantly suspect after that you've been up to. What have you been over the last years. Let me let me what i see. Is you've been up until the pandemic hit. You've been leading workshops like gangbusters you writing books. Physical and e books. You're online you're podcasting. What am i missing. What else wants about ed. Yeah speaking at conferences. Although before the pandemic i didn't have much time because i was on teaching pretty much in a different location every month. So it's it hard it it was an of course unexpected and i was. It was such a great beginning of twenty twenty. I had already done four trips to by march fifteen and and and i had such a great year plans out and then boom boom boom everything you know got cancelled and now looking into you know hopefully starting this summer so a year and a half of not doing what i love. What i live for is my oxygen. It's what makes me the happiest and it's it's hard a but it's going to be so sweet and when i start again that it's just going to be it's worth the wait i guess a. Yeah i think you're gonna you and everyone else is gonna appreciate just being able to go anyplace right travelling in feeling safe when you travel trying to mummify yourself or your plane. But i throw europe twice during the pandemic but it wasn't a bad experience because only french nationals and essential workers. Were allowed to travel. So you know there. There was more crew on the plane than passenger sold. The travel experience was actually pretty phenomenal. If you fly the right airlines but but yeah the the whole testing when before you leave testing when you get there. It's a pain but but it was. It was to do. It will go again from a photographer because you. You're you're by continental right. You have a place over there and place here. So what's what's it like from a photographer standpoint. The just the being able to move around freely in this country versus over europe. Well you mean like during the pandemic of the pandemic. Yes i was. I was there off lockdown. So i i left. I left just before the lockdown. The first time that i went during the summer which was phenomenal. I mean summer. In france last summer it was really great Compared to here where we're still the the curve was still going up and up and up whereas there they were doing really well in the summer. And then i went in october again. Be for the next lockdown. I think i left a day or two before the law. The new lockdown. So i never had any restrictions other than masking but i i was on the beach everyday walking with my camera and that was the only place where people were not wearing masks and it. It felt normal felt it was so happy and so wonderful. Yeah so i really enjoyed it because summer was pretty tough here. I find I mean it here. in minneapolis. People are super responsible. Were kind of stuck. We're surrounded by states where they don't even wear masks anymore. It's scary you know But here people are since the beginning. Even though you know it wasn't like you we're going to be fine. If you're not worrying him ask. People have been really good about it. But but you're right in europe. Things were pretty tough and I debated actually mid mid march. I debated whether i should come back because my flight was canceled. If i should come back with stay there but the confinement was really really tough living right on the beach. I wouldn't have been able to actually even walk on the sand for a month.
How To Silence Your Saboteur with Remy Blumenfeld
"My guest. Today is remmy blumenfeld. Me is one of the world's leading us coaches in advisors. He's contributed more than fifty articles to forbes and has listed by the independent newspaper as one of the twenty most influential. Lgbtq people in the united kingdom. He's been featured the new york times the sunday times. Forbes and inc is clients are leaders from across the creative sector from film. Tv advertising publishing in gaining. Thanks so much for joining me today. Remmy ion is my pleasure. I am thrilled to have you here. We're gonna be talking about a subject. That number one i think is so important for business. Owners and founders but also so timely. I guess i i would say it's probably evergreen. You know it's probably always timely. But it is about that that savage that inner salvator that we have And i would really like to start with asking you to share. What what you think that saboteur is and how you see it affecting business owners yeah so the saboteur is a voice in your head and of course we are all made up of many different parts that may be the salesman that maybe the publicist that may be the shy retiring person with complex beings but when we have a conversation with ourselves in our head very often the part of ourselves that we're talking to in our head is not the most helpful part very often. The part of ourselves with communicating with is the saboteur. And the sabah. I i think it's helpful to think about this in terms of evolution you know. The saboteur is the voice in our head was designed to protect us and to be helpful to all survival by saying. Don't try that come up before and it didn't work And that's very helpful when you're going to be eaten by a barrel full down a precipice in primitive terms. It's very helpful to have a cautionary voice in your head that saying. Don't take that risk. Don't try that again. That could end in failure. You could eaten by a lion but these days you know when the risks were taking not life threatening risks for the huge majority that voice in our head. that staff from evolution is really unhelpful. Because it's it's a. It's a constantly questioning challenging. Tao ching voice the taps into environmental circumstances to remind us why whatever it is about to do could end up in bad trouble and and the bad trouble that it could end us up in. These days is really only failure. Failure as we know is necessary to success. Because if you don't fail dozens of times you won't succeed in my business. Before i went into coaching i was in. I was in tv entertainment. And you had to pitch a whole lot of ideas before you gotta yes. There was a saying that our industry sounds like yes. No no no no no no no no no no yes no no no no no no and you know the voice in your head would always be saying. Oh don't do that. Don't pitch that show put in that proposal. You could look foolish. You could fail. It could be rejected. Who are you to do this. And i think diane you're right that the voice is evergreen sadly but in these times off of stress and scarcity and on news waves being completely clogged with with negative messages. Al-sabah has a lot of material to work on. You know because it. It doesn't take much to derail you because you know. I thought i mean a very simple one is like don't do that. It's a recession. Who will want that. It's a recession and that immediately kind of short circuits so many things just thinking well the economic times a bad so the voice in my head. That saying don't do that. Whatever that might be launching new product lines. Start a business hire somebody expand. Whatever it is you might be thinking of doing when that voice in your head you're sabotage says don't try that those a recession on think you. Are you crazy. The other part of you the pop. That's perhaps a little bit more and daring is very easily put off. So maybe that's you know that's a helpful kind of overview of our savage basically the voice in your head that says. Don't you try that. you'll look foolish. Don't try that it won't work. Why are you even thinking of doing that. Who'd think you up to do it. That's the sabotage on. It sounds like the there are times when the saboteur sounds like the their reasoning is valid. Like what the example escaping. Don't you that. There's a recession right. So so it feels like it's we. Can vince ourselves saboteurs right. A hundred percent hundred percent and the and the sabah works on pre existing agreements. Which are out there in the world which it's part of a that you'll never gonna ditch your saboteur and i think it's perhaps even useful to to recognize that voice in your head has has a place it has a place and if you think of all the different parts of yourself as being you'll personal board of advisors than having one board member who saying don't try that as a recession. Don't try that it went. What don't do it again. You'll look foolish. That can be okay. Annoying let's no pretend it's not annoying tablet board member like that. It's annoying but it can be useful. I think the problem diameters for many of us alone in our heads with the board of one the board member of one that we have is the salvatore and until we labeled at bold member as the saboteur. Recognize that you know. She has a value but she's not driving us to the place where we want to go quickly or in daring courageous ambitious imaginative way initially realized that than we. Oh yes that's the truth. Well it's not. The truth is just one perspective. It's just one it's one perspective and you could even argue that it's a useful perspective but it it. It's the only perspective you become allies because all the conversations that you're having with yourself you'll sabotage in your head end up in feeling defeated and feeling like Thank goodness. I didn't try that because i would have looked foolish as though you see. I think the saboteur believes the failing and looking foolish are the worst possible things that could happen to you. And of course a part of you part of me believes that too because we've all had bad experiences with failing looking foolish and so when the saboteur voice in our head says that we listen whereas the reality is we should as a good chairman of our own board. Say thank you for your contribution. I will bear that in mind and then take some other input right. That's that's the way i look at it. Yeah yeah yeah definitely okay. So how does someone silence that saboteur question. And i'm afraid the answer is you cannot silence you'll sabah. Zabaleta was put that by evolution. Some people's loud too some people sabotage more frequent. However what you can do is put your saboteur in that place and i think the first thing you can do is just by recognizing it by recognizing the that voice in my head that i'm talking with all the time is very often my saboteur and when it creeps in need to recognize that that's that's the perspective but not the only respect. So that's one thing you know the very first thing but it's really important. Recognize the voice in my head is not me it's by sabato and then the second thing is maybe just to kind of put it in a box so i think of my subah diane like a like a still away on my ship right. So i'm the captain and the captain decides where we're going to go how we're gonna get the how it's going to be. Who's gonna come along for the ride and the saboteur is a stowaway who i don't really want on the ship. They are there any way and they are always undermining everyone on everything and it has a useful function but they are still away.
China to test entire city of 9 million amid new cases
"The Chinese city of Qing DAO says its entire population of nine million people will be tested for covert 19 after a handful of new infections were discovered.

Sebene Selassie on Bringing Mindfulness into Every Part of Our Lives
"Seven it is such a pleasure to have you on untangled today. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you, Patricia for having me. I want to start by asking you a little bit about your childhood. So why don't you tell us what were you like as a ten year old girl? How would you describe yourself? Wow ten years old. So I was born in Ethiopia. My mom was GPO Oban, my dad's Airtran, and we came to this country when I was three. And we moved into a very white upper middle class neighborhood in Washington northwest. Upper northwest DC, and at ten years old I would say I was pretty confused though. I lived at home, which was not very assimilated. So we ate you in food my parents spoke to us in. Iraq, we were part of that point small community of Ethiopian xlt now DC the DC areas large huge argest community business country. But at that time, there were only a few families and. We were all pretty tight and then my world of the neighborhood and school was very white, very upper middle class and it was confusing to move between those two worlds. So I was a Latchkey kid both my parents worked a so at ten years old coming home and spending time with my intellectually disabled sister who I felt pretty responsible for even though she's four years older than me. And I was learning how to navigate these two worlds, the world of home and Ethiopian culture and then the world of school and American media I watched a lot of TV I think I learned a lot about the culture around me from TV in popular culture, which probably not the best place to start understand your life and world so shy introverted. I was smart but did not do well in school at all at that age, and honestly, if there could have been a diagnosis at the time I was probably really depressed or at least Melancholic I. Think it had to do a lot with not understanding how these two different realities together he added. So in writing because at ten years old to feel that split between. Your experience at home in your experience at school can be so overwhelming and do you feel like you tried to Numb your feelings and just do what you need to do every day help your sister go to school what was your experience going through that time in your life I was very athletic kid at that age probably found a lot of release and any joy through sports through climbing trees through riding my bike riding skateboards soberly through my body and I lost that in my early adolescence, which is interesting. That was probably where could find a sense of belonging or connection. But in terms of school and relationships, I was a tomboy. So I didn't fit in with my girlfriends I remember going to sleepovers and friends wanting to play Barbie or dolls, and I just had no interest in that whatsoever. And I in a neighborhood full of boys. So I think I took a lot of refuge in physical play in activity and when I didn't have that I remember being numbed by television I watched a lot of TV as a kid they wanna get to this later the themes of your upcoming book and these themes of belonging and identity, and it's so interesting that. Your world was so focused on this kind of split identity as you were growing up and I think I've read that you started learning to meditate when you were a teenager is that right? What was your first experience there? Yeah. My brother, who's eight years older than me was probably as confused terms of his sense of identity and he became what's colloquially known as. Now, when I was fifteen or sixteen So my first introduction to eastern religions and spirituality and philosophy was through him and he was reading the I ching back of Gita and. Also had some Buddhist books at the time. So I started reading those things also started going to the street temple in downtown DC where a lot of punk rock kids hang out too. So it was kind of a cool scene at that point and started going to Cure Thanh chanting going to lectures and started to meditate very berry intermittently I didn't know what was doing. So by the time I got to my first year university, I started taking religion classes and ended up majoring in religious studies with a focus on Hindus men but. My entry way into, but just philosophy and thought was through that.
The Philippines Becomes Coronavirus Hot Spot In Southeast Asia
"Philippines has over taken in Tunisia as Southeast Asia's Corona virus hot spot even though Indonesia has twice as many people. The Philippines now has more than 136,000 confirmed cases of covert 19 and critics say no coherent strategy for defeating the virus, Michael Sullivan reports. Like other countries in the region, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam, For example, the Philippines recorded its first covert case back in January. Those neighbors acted swiftly. They started locking down when they had a few 100 cases and the timeliness of the response was key to the success of Vietnam, Korea and Taiwan University of the Philippines. Covert researcher Ranjeet Rai. They decided to do something significant when they only had relatively few cases, and they were successful with racing and with the isolation very different from the Philippines, where we already had a case in January, and we decided not to do anything about it until March, and it wasn't just the Philippines lock down. That was late health workers say, Dr Tony Luchon. Is a former advisor to the government's covert task force. They started Lee with the AH building up of the health system capacities in terms of testing isolation. And quantum tracing. We wasted so much time about two months instead of trying to build up our infrastructure's adequate testing and contact tracing are still a huge problem, but the lock down that went into effect in March 1 of the longest and most severe in Southeast Asia. Did help reduce the number of new cases until it was lifted in June, when cases started to skyrocket. Over the weekend, the country's medical front liners issued an urgent virtual plea to President Rodrigo did to reimpose the lock down to allow them to regroup. Medical Association president Dr Jose Santiago Jr. Our health care system has bean overlong our head workers are burned out would seemingly endless number of patients trooping to our hospitals for emergency care and ambition. We're waging a losing battle against carbon 19 President Duterte. His initial response was less than empathetic, accusing the health workers of inciting a revolution against his government. You will give me the free ticket. The state's a counterrevolution. How I wish you would do it. The next day, he retreated and ordered a new 15 day locked down. But it's not a stringent is the first public transportation has been stopped. But businesses and retail outlets Khun operated half capacity in an effort to both halt the spread of the virus and allow some economic activity in the country that's now slipped into recession. But critics say this 15 day locked down light won't stop the spread of the virus. If it goes only 15 days, it will start increasing again. And the problem is that our health Care is now a full capacity. We have two cities in Metro Manila, which are at 100% occupancy. So that's a real problem. That's University of the Philippines. Professor Ghetto divvied who's been modelling the spread of the virus, along with his colleague, grungy dry. If we don't manage this this month, we don't take the opportunity to extend the music. You That small window opening lives and livelihoods would suffer at the disruption will become greater and my sense if we prematurely opened, it could be catastrophic for us. But he acknowledges extending the log down will be a tough sell for both the politically powerful business community and the everyday Filipino who's going to suffer because of these extended lockdowns.

Olympics Re-Lived: 2008 Beijing
"Beijing Olympics of the first Olympics I watched extensively I vividly remember be home doing what she did in. Athens. But for sort of wall-to-wall coverage, it was Beijing for me and I just remember the venues being really cool. The bird's nest, the aquatic center looking futuristic and yeah I just lapped it up. Do. You remember the dramas at the opening ceremony. That's kind of a rule about a conic moments matt. I think that is the conic moment isn't it from Beijing? Yeah well, I would say you same bolt is the I call. Of this the sport yes I'm going. Non You talked about venues and several. Yes opening ceremony iconic moment. Yeah. They also remember all the re. There were lots of theories about the pollution in Beijing and that being there's always some sort of controversy drama in the lead-up. Olympic. Some sort of reason that's being peddled in the media may be completely legit often is about why the Olympics is going to be a massive massive failure. In Rio none of us were ready. We didn't get that with London twenty twelve here. I'm sure in other countries they did everybody was sort of united in positively about the Olympics but in Beijing was the pollution because the the factory I mean everywhere in China in factories in urban areas in China and they were well first they relocated. I know from personal experience, they relocated a lot of the most polluting factories from Beijing to other parts of the country in particular to Ching de. meaning that on my visits to Chengdu roundabout that time it felt like my throat was burning every time I stepped outside because the pollution in the smoke was so bad. In fact, the final of the champions tour event. that. I attended in D. had to be halted because nobody could see the ball. But In Beijing I mean the police was was far less bad than fit but they hid seeded the clouds in order to make it rain in the lead up to the Olympics to clear the air they were controlling the weather. Can come here and do that. Yeah. No, I remember thinking what if it's that easy to make it not reign. Why we faffing around with you know? All the time.
