Applications and Impact of CRISPR/CAS9 in Bioprocessing
"Today. I'm joined by fanling. Wong director of cell line development and protein sciences and zane starkey wolf director of corporate development from wishy biologics. I'm excited to be speaking with both of you. Today about crisper cast nine technology and its possibilities in the discovery and development biopharmaceuticals. We will also conduct a deep dive on its potential impact on bioprocessing and bio manufacturing. Welcome fanling and zane to the podcast. Zinke randy glad to be here. Thank you brandy before we get too far and because of our audience is quite diverse with regards to their experiences in life sciences. Fenland could you please provide some background on. Crisper cast nine as molecular biology. Gene editing tool. Yeah sure so christmas. Nineteen action system is actually adapted from a natural procure arctic defense mechanism to bacteria to simplify. What could spec assistant can do is took leave the face she and i was. It has been incorporated into the bacteria routine on so that to keep the fate from reproducing. Crisper is actually akron stands for clusters servers regularly interspace. Shot had a dramatic repeats and kissed by the most well well-researched variant of the class outcasts nucleus. Which has been used within the gene editing function. So i think the research community have actually adapted this mechanism to revolutionize how we perform the genetic modifications Not only in pro arctic. But or so. You can arctic sales since the system was first published and zane i know from our previous conversations that you were saying that crisper casts has an intriguing origin. Would you be able to elaborate. Yes interesting research can be found on crisper that dates back to the late. Eighty s Other work has been conducted throughout the first decade of the two thousand however it wasn't until two thousand twelve that two pivotal research papers were published in the journal. Science one by jennifer down nov uc berkeley and manual shopping chair of the university of vienna and then another pianist by doctors cross unanimous and sickness at vilnius university. All demonstrating the use of bacterial. Crisper cast nine as simple programmable. Gene editing jewel. But i know that the story doesn't stop there does it no. It certainly does not in less than a year in two thousand thirteen. The labs of dr fung jong and will chong of the burden student. Mit dr george. Church's lab at harvard reported success in adapting. Crisper cast nine for genome editing in your area cells and both mouse and human cells. And i know that we could really spend an entire podcast. Just on the history of crisper so i wanted to stay focused on the technology here. There's been a lot of excitement since discovery about this molecular biology tool. Can you explain why. Sure the remarkable functionality of this tool is that it allows scientists to target specific locations within the genetic code of an organism to cut out or replace a segment of dna due to the high specificity and exactness of utility. The applications have far reaching potential. And it has already become a much to walks game changer. In many fields of life science because it enables efficient cost effective and precision gene. Editing that has a wide utility for development of biological therapeutics including so and gene therapy disease modeling diagnostics agriculture industrial biology and more. And this has me thinking just about alternatives to crisper casts altogether Are there other ways to edit genomes. And if so what makes a crisper cast so much better. Great question brandy many of the other gene editing systems utilize today such as zinc finger. Nicholas's talons the use of mega nick. Liaises or other by all vectors like a. Iv compared with christopher cast nine are in the end very complex and time intensive often requiring many more steps and thus are more costly as well also and this may be greatest benefit. Is that crisper chess. Nine as a low off target affects profile which again makes it an ideal gene. Editing tool justify along with that. I've read many Recent advances using crisper technologies. Could you elaborate a little bit on those. The advances are extensive and continuous. We speak one example includes crisper a crisper i which are techniques to up and down regulate gene expression using dead cast nine dead cast nine removed the nucleus capability of cast nine but still allows for the targeted binding to a double stranded. Dna sequence of interest using the highway. Specific guide are a that is one of the cornerstones of crisper genome editing. I'd like to add that another application. It's a using crisper for hamas directed repel or so called a the are so this technique in simple terms can repel a double stranded. Dna break which is very important for genus ability. But what does the crisper made. Sdr can do is that. It cannot only to repel a break. But or so crew. Eight the break and then replace it with a small mutation or as elijah sequences so this techniques have actually substantially opened ability or researchers to make gino added more quickly and more efficiently
interview With Haley Pretzman
"Hello everybody here. We are again with another interview today. We have haley from the podcast. Called the horror comedy. Podcast and yes. Podcast is spelled p. o. t. c. That's actually a hashtag. That i use sometimes for this podcast so hailey please introduce yourself more efficiently and tell the people more about your podcast and then anything else that they need to know about you from. Thank you so much for having me on. I i love when i'm high. I love your podcast. it's awesome My name is haley. i'm the host of the her comedy podcast Sometimes i call myself escapist. Because i do believe that being afraid is really therapeutic sometimes Really this'd owner. I'm a producer. I do all the research and i really have. I have made for scare myself. I can't sleep right so i love it. I love doing the podcast. I'm also a crazy cat lady and they draw some time as well as a pretty i. I'm a huge donor. All good things and then you. Your co host is jake and we're going to try and get him on this podcast as well podcast. I should start using So so so marijuana Sounds like it has a Plays a pretty big role in your life. When when was the first time that you tried it. The first time i ever smoked. I was seventeen. I was at the time. I was dating somebody else. Don't tell jake and This boy just a testament to like how good my judgment used to be. He just got off probation so he bought some weird. He had this like two foot tall bong and we sat in his garage will. I stood to be able to reach the ball. And i hit it. Nothing like hit again. Nothing i must have ripped this bong. It's like two foot bong probably like five times while. I was just sitting in this chair for a second. And they're like everyone's looking at me and they're like do you feel it and i was like no and then i just turned and threw up. Oh it was crazy. It was like i had the vision of like how lies is look in cartoons. And i don't think i'll ever be that high again and i love it so after the throw up you loved it. I loved it. Yeah i second. I was like. I'm not dying okay. Am i doing okay. I'm not saying all right. We're good and after that. I yeah i mean it was kind of easy to Get into also because my mother Who she she is. Open about it as i am. She's a huge pot head to so it was really easy to get into honestly. It was kind of everywhere. Nice okay so. I have so many questions first. Question is when you were taking these hits on the bung. Did somebody described you anything. They were like we were all people that were older than me so i'm sure they were kind of like nobody warned me or with like hey. This is a to football. So there's a lot of smoke you know. Notice that anything they just let it happen. And did you know the the whole inhale thing was that. Were you aware of what you needed to do. I had watched them smoke. Okay a few times. So i was aware of it. It was almost like a training montage of like in my head. It's like me watching them. Smoke and like preparing myself for the big fight like me versus the bong and then it was my turn to get in the ring. And i just. I just didn't get it. Well it sounds like you did so you took you said probably about five massive hits of this thing and nothing nothing nothing you throw up and then what what happens after the throw up is it. I feel like i should put in a trigger warning for all the times of said throw up is it. Was it immediate after that that you fell high. What was sort of that transition into feeling good. It was like probably one of the only moments in my life where getting high. It was almost like ooh felt like a movie. It was like how it looks in the movies. Like i was sitting there and somebody asked me if i felt anything and it was like it sounded different to me and then after after the big Sat back up. And i could see like everything look different. Everything was different. It was the same like but my vision was weird. I felt like i couldn't stop laughing. I was like euphoric almost. And i felt like a freaking cheech and chong cartoon
Hot-button words trigger conservatives and liberals differently
"From UC Berkeley, Stanford and Johns Hopkins University's scanned the brains of more than three dozen politically left and right leaning adults is they viewed short videos involving hot bottom hot button immigration policies. And for more on their findings, we turn to the KCBS Ring Central News Line and talked with Yin Chong Leon Post doctorate fellow at U. C. Berkeley's Neuroscience department and the study's lead author. Well, thanks so much for being with us. If I understand this correctly, you are suggesting through this research that there was a neural basis to partisan bias and vocabulary is part of that. Yes. Well, first of all, thanks for having me Jeff Patty? Yes. So we can conservative and liberal meaning participants. They watch these videos, and we saw that neuro responses to watching the same videos with different Suggesting that these parties are suggesting ah Nero basis for these partisan biases, and we were interested in on the words and that tend to trigger these different instruments contest. And what we found was that words related to threat to risk to morality and emotions tend to drive these different simply speaking. What do you mean by a neural response? So what were well, the thing is that, um we basically the participants respond differently to the same video. So in the sense that when you when you see that when you When you watch a video, your brain responds to the particular way while we see if they consider this response similarly to other conservatives, liberals respond similarly to other liberals. But the difference is between the groups have different. So if I'm understanding things correctly, you're not suggesting that there is an inherent liberal or conservative genes, so to speak in the way we process there. It's once we have sort of formed our opinions. Our brains react accordingly. So in our study, we can't really speak to the genetic genetic basis of these differences because we scan a doubt and we've only scanned them once. But, you know, I do want to emphasize that the differences that we see that we found in the study could very much be deal, too. So that we're having been exposed to different media sources having different beliefs, and it doesn't necessarily have a genetic basis. Yes. I find it very interesting that you thought the key the trigger was vocabulary right and not images. I mean, part of the part of the Ah, that part of that might be, because that's the sort of analyzing the video that we use. A lot of them were news reports that contain basically people talking about issues and not just showing images of those issues. So I think that might be one reason why linguistic content state such a strong role in the study. But if we want the show videos of, for example, a protest things might be a little bit different, So we don't we don't really know if that would be the case by at least in this study with the videos that we use what we saw what that the difference is really more just a result of the words that we're using in the video. I'm so curious. Is there a way to turn this around and say, Can we use neuroscience to the benefit of trying to bring people together? I think there is there is such a possibility. I think what we have now, if in the study is a potential in your old Marka off when conservative and liberal leaning people process the same content differently, so we can try to do is use it. Use that market to find message is that Reviews that different. So in that sense, I think it is a promising mixed up but step and it does provide us with a way to leverage on neuroscience to try, Teo. Get at these sort of intervention. You will Oh, thank you. Interesting research We have been speaking with in Xiangyang. He's a post doctorate fellow at UC Berkeley's Neuroscience department and the study's lead author.
They Call Us We Bare Bears
"Hello and welcome to another edition of they call us Bruce and unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I'm bill you. And I'm Jeff Yang and we are so incredibly pleased tonight to have with us a very special guest, a friend of ours, a friend of the PODCAST and a brilliant animation creator. That's kind of a big drum roll right now who's it going to be? But I'm here to tell you that it is in fact, Daniel Chong the creator of we bear bears one of our favorite animated series Daniel welcomes the fogcast. Welcome. Thank you for that intro. Man I don't know what to do with that that. Good now. All right. No for real. Huge. Admirers of yours and big fans of of we bear bears I've you know as much as possible I've I've kept up with it given. The fact of the world is basically a rolling apocalypse I'd. Things things we've your bears are the things that make life feel less like a total and utter shit show. And I will say We're particularly excited because we have the chance to actually take a look at the. We are bears movie, which is sort of like an exclamation point on the series and it was fantastic. I mean I have so many things to ask about say about it especially the fact that it feels like. I don't want to say this to overstate this in some ways, but it feels Kinda like an important movie in ways that I will elaborate. Thank you perfect for twenty twenty I'll say that But let's begin actually Daniel. By talking about how this got started in I mean for those of you who have not yet watch, we bear bears. It actually began as a web comic called the bear bears right. Three bear bears right shortly there and tells how that where that came from and I guess how this how this turned into. What it is today. Yeah It was a web comic that I had created it. You know I was working in the industry in the animation industry ad. I just wanted to make my own thing. And at the time you know people are posting things on blogs and stuff. So I created this comic on my own called three bear bears is kind of a play on Goldilocks, three bears and so Yeah it was. It was a comic that It was very like free for me. I. Didn't like really right out anything ahead of time I just kind of like A. Free associated as I was drawing it and nobody read it and nobody cared and just completely I remember going onto comic forums and trying to post it like, Hey, guys check this out in like nobody wanted to talk to me on forum. So it was just like. But but the thing is I was already working. So it's not like it was so debilitating. What was it? The only thing I had? It was just You know it is it is that was just it was my outlet that my special hobby I guess at the time. So but as I was in the animation industry working as a story artist for about ten years run by fifth year I was starting to get antsy I just wanted to create my own things. So I started taking these comics different ideas that I had started just flushing them out into pitches into stories and or. TV shows, and that's where three bears became weaver bears. I got to change that title for legal reasons apparently. Some what's called a some company owned I think there were a taxidermy company, they own something similar. So. You know now the title really means nothing at it makes no sense but it's So. Yeah. We're not responsive opportunity right there if you. Off. So. When you when you came up with this for the idea when he became a cartoon a series, like what were the kind of the things that you were like how did you pitch it honestly when I tried tried to explain this series to people who've never seen it? Yeah. It's kind of a weird thing to try to like I like the concept is such a It's so simple and yet it. So it's too simple in a lot of ways. Yeah and then trying to explain to the emotional complexity of is difficult. You know. I think the pitch itself was was. The visuals help a lot. I'm not just pitching words so. I think there are two things that were very crucial to well, maybe three. Crucial things to the the Bible ever the pitch that I did that help sell at one was the visual of stack these three bear stack them each other which you know I it was a very iconic thing in the comic and that was definitely the thing carried into the pitch, and so you know I pretty much started off the Bible by showing this image of the three bears together. So it just. kind of it's sort of just evokes a very strong image up the top. The second image that I put in the Bible was an image of the three bears mingling at a party with a bunch of Humid's holding like cups at a party and nobody is freaking out by them. They're just all mingling together as if they're like, you just talking about the weather or something like that, and that was another like. Important image to kind of sell here's the joke. Is that these three years nobody freaks out when they see them they're just one of you guys except there bears. So that was the other really important image to sell this project

"That it it's made it's changed people's mindsets or it's pushed movements into certain ways people can agree with me or not. But I feel that it might be one of those catalogues moments that that helped change and who knows maybe we're going through another, you know Resurgence or a new movement because pots legalized now and then we go into film until Christmas take me down take me on a journey. Well, my the funny thing that I always look at film and television, so when you think of of someone who smokes weed not now dead, Back in the day. What did you think? Oh, I I'm going to sound like an ass know. It's just it's a concept though. I thought I've people who smoke weed. I thought of it as lazy young white guys with bad skin. Who were I just thought of like I thought about the classic Stoner, right? But truthfully the Stoners now, I look at it. And I'm like the Stoners were the ones that pushed it through the Stoners were the ones that were they were our modern hippies who were Fearless they were the ones the kind of brought it to everybody's Consciousness, but the only thing was that our own biases that you know, made us think those people were less than or they weren't as smart, which is absolutely not true back in the day you had this Stoner mentality that they were dumb they were lazy they were uneducated job. This concept of the stoner was always really negative and it was really negatively it was it was really really negative and then it start right and it doesn't mean it's right but that was the media and that's who filmed traded. We had that 70 show that had you know, you had the we'd circled Cheech and Chong still chamma chamma them had that mentality they played off it which is not a bad thing. It was totally a stereotype that was created around but everybody accepted it and the stoner did bring it in but it was always played as this kind of guy that didn't really give a crap in context. So you had all these movie references. But now when you look at people when we look at pod that is not even on T anymore that that stereotype is gone. I wonder when that little shift happened and it started I would imagine with parts of parts of states and countries like Canada being legalized that mentality shift so we had things like there's movies for example in Ted I'm going to show you this one because Ted's like one of those great movies loved head and and it's so funny. I do have a little spice ethnic Spice Island Farland if with the Randy Moss Randy little stuffed toys stuffed teddy bear. So you make the super acceptable when you have a little teddy bear getting hi to me. That's Larry buddy gets high, right? So this is the theme in the Bears game Oh, Hey, listen try this. I told my weed guy to step it up and he gave me that what is this? It's called mind rape. It's actually pretty mellow doesn't sound very mellow. Well, he only had three other batches Gorillaz Panic they're coming they're coming and something called This is permanent want spark.

First ascent of Shishapangma - May 2, 1964
"The day was may second nineteen sixty four. A group of Chinese climbers became the first people to reach the summit of Shisha Pong a mountain in Tibet at more than twenty six thousand feet or eight thousand meters. Sheesh oppong is the fourteenth highest mountain in the World Sheesh upon is thought to mean range above the grassy plain the mountain is a part of the Himalayas. And it's located in southern Tibet. Near the border of Nepal. Shisha Pungwe was the last of the eight thousand yrs or mountains more than eight thousand meters in height above sea level to be climbed in June of Nineteen thirty on a Porno. Wyant became the first eight thousand meter peak to be climbed and in nineteen sixty. A team of climbers summited delivery one. That made it the thirteenth eight thousand dollars to be summited making Shisha Palma. The only one that had not yet seen a successful ascent since Tibet in China impose restrictions on travel to the region. Few western climbers had been near. She Chicago people were sent to scout the mountain before the expedition began. The chosen climbers began training. Orders were put in for clothing equipment and food and early in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. An expedition of one hundred ninety five people was put together. The team. Included experienced mountaineers climbed Mount Everest as well as less experienced climbers it also included scientists journalists photographers and medical workers among others on March eighteenth. The expedition set up base camp north of the peak at around five thousand meters above sea level by April twenty. First the final assault camp was pitched just below the summit. There were thirteen people in the summit party including expedition leader. Xiujing deputy leader of the Assault Party Chong Chunyan and Wong Fu who took part in the first ascent of Mount Everest via the north face but only ten people took part in the final assault since three people were dealing with altitude sickness on the morning of May second. They reached the summit not long after they made it to the top. They began their descent back to the final assault camp over the next several decades. More people attempted to summit the mountain. The next ascent of Shisha Pong did not happen until nineteen eighty when the mountain was open to foreign teams the first winter ascent of the peak took place in two thousand and five otherwise hundreds of people have made it to the main summit of Shisha PA as of twenty eighteen thirty one people have died on Shisha Palmer. Some of those deaths were caused by avalanches falls altitude sickness and fluid accumulation in the lungs caused by sending to high altitudes
Beastie Boys Made a Movie. We Made a Beastie Boys Podcast.
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this. Is the big picture a conversation? Show about Beastie Boys. That's right beastie. Boys made a movie beastie boys story which is directed by Spike Jones and available to watch right now on apple. Tv plus. If you're like me and worship Beastie boys you need to watch this movie later in the show. I'll be talking to add rock. And like diaw Beastie boys about their movie history their favorite fruits. How they're doing in quarantine. The New York Knicks documentaries that they want to see a bunch of other stuff as I tried to keep them focused on our conversation. A really love these guys beastie. Boys are my favorite band ever and it isn't even really close so to talk about them before we get to them. I asked the VIC Ferrari to my Alessandro Allegra. Join me it's Chris Ryan. Hi Chris. I've always seen myself more as a Nathan Wind Guy. I've been waiting my whole life to do this. Podcast so let's go. I'm very glad you're here with me. I can't think of anybody else. I'd WanNa have here other than you. Except maybe Mike the Inadequacy and they're coming later. So when I say beastie boys what's the first thing that pops in your head Chris? Probably the invention of cool so I think one thing that we've talked about a lot over the last twelve to eighteen months. We've had a lot of Quentin Tarantino podcasts. We've we celebrated a lot of his movies on the watchable. We talked about them on. Big Picture Podcast with him and something that comes up. Ally is kind of how he gave us a vocabulary or language to through which to understand culture and understand the world and I think the Beastie boys are equally responsible for that in both of our lives in terms of introducing us to so much music and so much other culture that wound up becoming just part of our like way in which we relate to the rest of the world through these like Kung Fu and exploitation movies through rap Reggae punk rock weird funk like all like it just basically made collectors and fans out of out of us at the risk of stepping on music exists. I wanted to ask you why you think you. And I to some extent to are so interested in figures who are all about basically like recombinant culture. You know who take all the disparate parts of stuff that they love and smash it all together because that is the thing that the movie and then returning to all of this music that I listened to over and over and over and over again in my life that I have thought about is like wow they really just jammed all the stuff they liked together to make something new like. What is it about that? The second part of what you said is the most important thing. Do you think about the people that we really respond to. Wu Tang clan quitting Tarantino. Beastie boys it means we're very basic very and B. It's the most important part is finding the second thing the thing that you're GonNa make out of all this shit. And that's what makes me so excited is when someone uses all these postmodern tools in these reconstructs. All these things out of this of Cultural Ephemera to say something else. Wootten Klan took all those Kung Fu movies and took all those samples but made something that could only have been made in Staten Island. You know back could only have made the music. He made with the experience that he had. And the Beastie boys could only have been the beastie boys by combining bad brains with run DMC. Yeah and I feel like it's not a mistake that so much of what we do at the ringer and so much of what you and I have been trying to do in. Our lives is basically celebrate and be enthusiastic about the things that we care about and I feel like these artists are the same way if you if you think about Beastie boys and you even look at the way they tell their story in the movie. It's just we really liked was the clash and grandmaster flash and Cheech and Chong and we were trying to find a way to make all those things make sense together and I feel the same way about what we do every day I feel about you and I love the NBA and we love Top Gun and we love. I love deb's I don't know how you feel Dad's but You know just trying to find a way to make all those things fit together so I feel like I have aped and tried to copy a lot of what those guys do. And I feel like a kinship to their their mission their creative project. Absolutely I mean like you and I don't mean to make it sound like you. And I are the Beastie boys here but you know. I think that we use the Internet the way other people would use a sampler right and we draw in all these different media. We'd take youtube videos. We take a picture and I think it was probably more the case before we started working professionally together in an editorial capacity but we would have like tumblers and blog spots and you were just kind of like throw a picture Steve McQueen up in an article you were writing about those face and it would have some sort of relationship and I think that that was our way of continuing along this tradition of mixing and matching different pieces of culture to say something about yourself. The thing that you said that I think is probably one of the most important parts of the movie that will nocco very remarked upon because a lot of it is going to be spent talking about. Yok and it should be because this is very much I think an image to him in a real moving tribute to their friend but when Mike D says in the beginning of the movie that he was just this weird kid who found the clash. Not only is that like. That's the origin story for a lot of people. Who like they find that one band? Whether it's the dead or the clash or you know run DMC. Whoever it is that makes them think that they are now. All of not alone in the world the clashes like a really really important. Template for the Beastie boys because they are basically A Crossroads Group A marketplace. At Crossroads Group. It's where all these different cultures are coming. And they're setting up their wares and you can pick and choose off these tables and then you go home and you make something out of it. And that's what the clash did too. I mean you can make a lot of arguments about appropriation. And whether or not the people who the clash were taken from or or paying homage to properly compensated for the work that they did And the same thing could go. For the Beastie boys but I think a lot more people know about Lee Perry. Because of the Beastie boys did not you know and and that's like a really really important act in culture. Everything is about timing too I think about when they hit the scene and who they were working with and on the one hand I guess there's an appropriation question. I think they've moved past that so effectively because they were just literally there with Russell. Simmons and Rick Rubin and run DMC making music together and they were a part of something that was essentially punk at the end of its first true like lightning rod phase at the end of the day and and rapid the Dawn. You know I mean. They weren't there necessarily in in the parks in the south. Bronx but you know one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three played on the radio. Yeah Yes yes. And there's that great moment in the movie where Africa is asked about cookie. Post by one of the members of the Beastie boys and you can see like they're they're they're they're in the moment and they're going to dense area and you know performing for white people introducing them to wrap it away and that couldn't have happened if they if it was just five years earlier five years later. The same is true for the class. You know it's like they arrived at a time when the world was ready to hear rock and try to play reggae. And what that means for the future reggae. There's something also about this specific approach to the world though that jumps out to me. Which is it's not. Just this is what we like. It's this is what we like and I don't care if you don't like it and I don't I actually don't care if you don't get it because when I think about the things that I knew when I first heard the band it was you could fit it inside of a very small box. I just did my cultural reference points. The music that I knew about the the records the comedy everything that they were throwing in. I wouldn't say that I discovered them because they were sampled for three seconds on a on a record on policy boutique but they were a window. You know I had never heard of Sadaharu. Oh until I heard the beastie boys rap about him you know like there's so much in their music the sampling the lyric writing even if it is in their songs are very rarely like high minded. They're not necessarily pursuits of big ideas. But they put big ideas in front of you. Just by dint of what they were interested in and I I liked that kind of take it or leave it quality they bring to it and I feel like that really comes out in the movie too. Don't you think yeah? It's only a couple of people are lucky enough to have other people care about the thing that they care about. You know you can. You can play the game and you can try. Ride the wave of what's popular at any given moment. But it's so weird because what the beastie boys did especially once they move to La. I think wound up having such an incredibly profound formative effect on all the culture that comes after it but it so it winds up being underrated as as to what a zag that was how crazy it was for those guys to be like. Yeah we'RE GONNA LEAVE NEW YORK. We're GONNA leave behind rapper. We're going to go to capitol from Def Jam. And we're GONNA work with these two producers that basically no one's ever heard of an assemble these like really out there incongruous samples to build together a new sound that we're gonNA use to define us for the next couple of decades. The only thing I wanted to talk about because I think is probably also a reason why you and I like them. Much is that and this comes across very much in the movie much

Cheung Tze-keung - Hong Kong's King Of Thieves
"Week. We discussed chauncey early life. And how his obsession with wealth led him to commit to ransom kidnappings as part of a master plan to extort the ten wealthiest men in Hong Kong? His first target was thirty one year old. Victor Lee the son of Hong Kong's wealthiest man Li ka-shing this week we'll delve into the fallout of lease kidnapping. And how it inspired Chung to go after the forty seven year old property development tycoon. Walter Kwok will also discuss. How an unexpected cooperation? Between Hong Kong and mainland China ultimately led to Chung's demise when sixty eight year old billionaire Li ka-shing into his front door on the night of May Twenty Third Nineteen Ninety six. He was expecting to see his son. Victor apologized for being so late instead. He found himself face to face with the infamous criminal. Forty-one-year-old chauncey calm and four other armed. Men Leave recognized Chung immediately. He was wanted by the police for multiple crimes including two high profile robberies at the Kai. Tak Airport the second of which had been the largest cash robbery in Hong Kong's history. There was hardly a person in Hong Kong. Who didn't know Chung secons name as Hong Kong's wealthiest Man Lee knew? It was no coincidence that the thief had chosen his front door to knock on but nothing could have prepared him for what Chong was about to say. The criminal informed Lee that he had captured his son. Victor and if Lee ever wanted to see him again he would have to pay two billion Hong Kong dollars now. We was stunned. He asked where they had taken. Victor but Chong shook his head and repeated the demand. Two billion dollars or victor was dead. Shaking Lee tried to assess how he could gather the money he knew as well as Chong that if anyone could access billions of dollars at a moment's notice it was him his company. Cheung Kong Industries had made him a multi-billionaire and victor was in line for the throne but Lee wasn't worried about the money or his company. He just wanted his son back on your shortland. A professor in political economy assesses that in kidnapping for ransom cases. The hostage is returned alive about ninety percent of the time on. This is because the kidnapper is usually willing to negotiate in feasible deal can often be reached. Shortland also stresses that when faced with a ransom kidnapper dilemma. One should not immediately give in to the criminals demands. The hostage taker is likely to interpret this as evidence that more money is available and they will continue to up the ransom amount. Instead shortland advises keeping the criminal in the dark about one's financial resources. The captive will typically be released for a fraction of the original demand of course most individuals when faced with a kidnapper. Aren't thinking like rational business people. They're more concerned with the release of their loved. Ones and their minds are racing with worst case scenarios like torture and execution but wittingly or not Li ka-shing did the right thing shaking. He told Chung that he couldn't gather so much money at a moment's notice but he would try to come up with what he could. He certainly didn't give so much money lying about in his home. Leah's Chung if he could go to the bank for a withdrawal but the criminal shook his head this could arale suspicion and possibly alert the authorities when cheeky move on lease part and the whole plan could fall apart Lee understood and said he would do his best but he knew there was no way together that much money from inside the house under the supervision of Chung and his men Lee drained every hiding place and wallet in his home. He tried to come up with enough cash and valuables to satisfy the steep ransom demand. All the while worrying about his poor son finally having exhausted all his immediate resources. Li presented Chung with his loot. He knew it wasn't enough but he hoped Chung would settle for it surely he couldn't be expected together two billion if he wasn't even allowed to go to the bank. Lee watched with dread as the men counted their spoils. They were one billion short. Chung glared at Lea- incredulous. He could hardly believe that. A man as wealthy as Li ka-shing could only cough up half the amount on a smaller scale. Chong himself knew what it meant to be wealthy. His criminal escapades had paid off and his double life was lavish to him. Money was something to gamble with and enjoy and Chong's own home reflected. This opulence but Lee was a different breed. He was shrewd he invested. And he certainly didn't keep two billion dollars lying about his comparatively modest mansion once again. Li explained that he couldn't come up with two billion unless John allowed him to go to the bank and for the first time the criminal considered it he could get away with the full amount. If everything went smoothly but ultimately Chung couldn't risk it. If there was one place he had sworn never to go back to. It was prison. Besides one billion dollars was a lot of money. Five Times the amount he had obtained in his last airport robbery and it was plenty to fund his lavish lifestyle but grudgingly. He agreed to settle for one billion dollars half his original ask. He ordered Li ka-shing to pack up the money for him as Lee placed the cash. In bags he has Chong why he was doing this. Chung replied. I take unconventional steps to get rich. Money is the most important thing in life. But it's only me who can get away with kidnapping tycoons Charleena's men grabbed the bags of cash. Jong delivered a final warning if Lee or victor ever told the police about the kidnapping they would be dead. We nod and watched as the vans sped off into the night. Now all he could do was wait hoping that Chong would hold up his end of the bargain meanwhile victor was locked inside. Chun's hideout just over the border in mainland China. It had only been a few hours since his capture when his captors finally returned they blindfolded Victor and hurried him outside into a van as they drove. Victor imagined the worst. Perhaps they were taking him away to be murdered. His body could be buried somewhere. It would never be found and victor's family would never know why their son had disappeared. It was all too confusing and sickening for victor to come to grips with a few hours later. The van rolled to a stop. The car doors opened in several hands helped victor as he stumbled onto the sidewalk. He felt the crisp night air on his skin has one of his captors began untying his blindfold as it fell away. Victor recognized his surroundings. He was standing in the driveway of his father's house. In deep water. Bay Hong Kong Victor was bewildered. Was He being released? Was his family going to be harmed. He turned around and for the first time. Locked eyes with his captor the infamous Chunky Kong as victor stared at Chung. He could hardly register who this person was and what they wanted but before he could make sense of the situation. Chong stepped forward. He grabbed victor's face leaned in and planted a kiss on his forehead. Then he told victor he had been a good boy and he promised never to harm him or his family again back in his hideout. Chon divided the spoils amongst his comrades keeping forty percent for himself. He was happy that it pulled off. Such a new and brave stunt it was proof to Chung that. His master plan was feasible if he could kidnap the son of the wealthiest man in China and get away with it then he could kidnap anyone especially the rest of China's
The making of Yanni
"In the nineteen nineties. I wrote an op Ed. For The New York Times where I tried to make sense and make fun of an inexplicable pop phenomenon that was sweeping the planet. Another single name star. Yanni was a huge deal at the time this new age composer and performer doing concerts at the Taj Mahal and the Forbidden City in Beijing. He released his live at the Acropolis album in the spring of Nineteen ninety-four which sold more than four million copies. This baffled me and my times s I propose facetiously that Johnny success must be the product of some powerful global conspiracy because this young Yanni guy and his music were so completely blah. Lots of people agreed. There's one guy the worst guy the music the Yanni man. You know Yanni first of all anyone who looks like a magician and doesn't do magic I don't like oh no. This is yawning. This guy is the biggest pothole I've ever seen in my life. So how did it happen? How did somebody who made? What sounded like high-end Muzak? How at that moment of Nirvana and a tribe called quest? Did he emerged as this superstar? Studio Three Sixty Seven Chong has the answers. The nineteen ninety. Tv special of Yanni's concert at the Acropolis has all the trappings of a musician. Doing a victory lap. After really hitting the big time there was set against the backdrop of the Parthenon backed by no less than the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Tossing back. His dark flowing locks as tap that his synthesizers while an enormous crowd cheered them on. But if you thought that this was Yanni's ward for being world-famous you'd have it backwards. Yanni wasn't on TV. Because he was a star. He was a star because he was on TV. Yanni was a niche player. He was big in his area. But that's relative George Barris produced and directed the live at the Acropolis special and worked with Yanni for years. He wasn't considered a big player. In the overall music field. Yanni's field was the world of instrumental electronic new age music. He had been releasing albums for a small new age label since the mid eighties and they got respectable sales within that market but the general public dismissed all that stuff as music for hot stone massages or being put on hold. He was being buttonholes. A new age artists and there was no superstar Andrea. If Yanni was well known for anything it was for being the new boyfriend of a celebrity opened. The front door opened the door. I took one look at him. I lost my heart. This entire one thousand. Nine Hundred Oprah episode is actually devoted to dynasty actress. Linda Evans and her meet cute with Yanni. It was as if he was made. Just for my eyes. I mean there's nothing about exposure was nice but Yanni wanted to be more than talk show fodder the frustration was. He was hitting like a glass ceiling. But we believe in the music we saw there could be used in a lot of other areas than just in elevators and that was the challenge we had to get it out there and let the public decide the what options beyond he have. His music wasn't really radio. Friendly an MTV wasn't exactly making a lot of room for instrumental new age composers. And then.
"chong" Discussed on It Happened In Hollywood
"So commando comes out in in nineteen eighty-five Mark Tober fourth to be precise. And it's a pretty big hit right. It's not like total recall big but it's the seventh biggest R.. Rated release of that year making about seventy million or sixty million on a ten million dollar budget. That's a a big return. Because that's what they used to judge movies by before all the advertising costs on all that stuff. So like in Nineteen eighty-one for example. The biggest grossing movie. He was stripes. It didn't make the most money but it made the most money off of its budget. That was like a big deal back then eighties so she becomes a big international star. I know that's how I I took notice of her. And she made a big impression on me and we want to know what stardom was like for raid on Chong and well you always get a little little more than you asked for with break which is amazing and usually you get a man's name did it make you a movie star dead. I'll say something that probably a lot of people don't now it would have made me a bigger movie star if Joel Silver hadn't told the studio that I was a bad person and why that happened. I mean allegedly but I did a press junket and I think I just went crazy with room service and my bill was pretty high and he got so mad and then. I know that the studio wanted to hire me for a couple of gigs. And then they you know what they always do. They don't come to. They asked the producers. How was she and I just noticed? I never worked for Fox again for decades and I know that you'll probably said something toxic and I don't know exactly what was said but I know it was enough that I never after commando worked for the studio think about it so I know that that's a an unknown unknown thing and I think it was because he was because it was pretty big bill and he should have been happy to order champagne. Caviar probably something I that much. It was a lot but still had been Kevin Costner before. Kevin Costner was Kevin Costner. He they would have dissected up but I was a woman of Roy. You see what. I'm thanks so unfair. You go ran up a big bill. The Old room service. She thinks that affected her working. prospects after that. Maybe she's right. She says she never works for Fox again and that could be a variety of reasons. GotTa take her at her word with what she's saying. I love how she always speaks. Extreme power and tells us exactly what's on her mind and in a way she got the last laugh because Joel silver the producer kind of ran his company into the ground and is now out of the business so there you go race still here ordering room service after commando of course she was cast in the color purple so yeah. She came out commando pretty good. She got this great opportunity to be in this Prestige Steven Spielberg adaptation of the color purple and she doesn't have great memories race of that movie. The reason why the movie for me I was at a peak point in my career when I did the corporal I had to audition a zillion times this particular scene. I was a little annoyed that it took so long for them. To make a decision for me to play squeak and then as we were getting to the movie all of a sudden and and I love Quincy. Don't get me wrong but Quincy Jones gets this musical number and my big scene gets cut. So that's like a really hard thing into endure. You Work Your Butt off you if you've read the book squeak is a really pivotal point in Sofia Oprah's freedom and she's this extraordinarily character but then you get to the movie and there's like you know everyone's wearing velvet there's a musical number. It was no no no no way coming into the theater kitchen. It's a really good piece. But it cost me a scene pivotal emotional moment to. So what would you do to help Oprah. She gets raped to get her out of jail. She lets the jailer. Raipur in the book she goes and petitions for freedom. Freedom and the jailers would are going to do for me and then next thing you see her coming. Sofia's freed and squeak is limping up. The driveway bruised battered because she gave herself to get Sophia out of jail. And that's a huge to me. That was such a huge wonderful sacrifice to get this person out of jail and in the south that happened a lot obviously but that got cut out because it was too heavy. I guess I want to do Walker. Have that in her in the book uh-huh but when she wrote the it was yeah and I love Alice Walker. But you know you've got Steven Spielberg doing your movie. You'll do whatever stephen want. Stephen was huge and to work for. Everybody was like Steven Steven. And he's not exactly the guy you go to human on the planet. But he did. I mean you know. He's he's not foreman in terms of emotional depth. He's not the unbearable lightness of being. He's velvet and chicken coop. There there are a lot of cuts to the cute kids and chicken coops. I mean so I suffer with this movie because you know someone who read the book like six times and I really got like I just in the history wasn't velvet it was rugged poor and you know I can't wait to see the Harriet Tubman film. It it looks really good. I'm just waiting. And I love the equal justice initiative. I love the fact that we have this museum. In Alabama that we we have a lynching museum because this is stuff that needs to be told that Americans don't want to know about white guys. Don't WanNa talk about the fact that we are you know we were done to in a continuum that happens and still exist today. We are being butcher to massacred as people of color and so the color purple is a Hollywood is D- version of a time. That's just wasn't cute and and adorable but I think the films very cute and adorable. But you know it made Whoopi who was coming on. Or who was a big star anyway. But and I love Whoopi. And then it made Oprah Who was Juggernaut is a decker? Not You know so I get it so for me. It was painful them. She calls it like she sees it but I remember when the movie came came out. It wasn't the best reviewed movie and it didn't win any major Oscar right and Spielberg wasn't nominated for best directory. Even yeah there was some slight at the time. Yeah Yeah he won the DJ award. I believe in was not even nominated for best director. I think now. In retrospect it's sort of beloved. It's become a favourite film of a lot of people. Atlanta did launch will be in Oprah and you know so it is considered. Now I think Richard Classic but at the time I remember it. was that snubbed. By the Academy patting me that people felt. Yeah well you can definitely Feel raid on grievances with it because yeah it is a little bit of Disney fide in its presentation Asian. And they cut her big scene. Yes this is. One of our wilder rides has an interview. I'd have to say yeah has been different but this one was way out orbit right because on the show. Usually we do focus on one thing from the past and it was gonna be a commando but it just ended up being so much more than that but also we you know. We don't have people that are quite as candidate I guess and WHO's had such a long career and she still add it which is impressive to me? She hasn't given up. She's still working actress and she wants to be cast in things right and an interesting thing is if you listen to our interview with Tommy Chong is very similar so for someone. I'm on not to be raised by her father. She's very similar in conversation. Father that she is. She's candidate about things strong. Genetic Line there. Yeah Tommy Chong is super. We're open about everything. Just his mistakes. His what his opinion is. And and Ray Don Chong is no different. Does these free associative amazing anecdotes anecdotes names are named no regrets unapologetic. I really liked both of them.

"MTV was coming on and then they put Mick Jagger's thing and I was all over Gra MTV right as commando was happening and it was just another night. Was that one question about MC before we go into commend. You guys sleeping together not then I was over it but by then no not when we did that movie we were just friends by then but as a child you know I was thought it was interesting that way as a teenager but not as a as an adult I was like over it so back then as a teenager you were well we were friends put it that way with benefits. I didn't want to be with them and I thought it was old but I thought it was interesting. Because he was Mick Jagger and so you know you're young you're just newly sexual even though you are underage and it was like yeah. It was easy Wa- maybe more horrified. He didn't traumatize me. I didn't want anything about it. I did want as Baby V. I didn't Oh my thing was like you look. How old were you young? But fifteen Yes it was it was a different time away them. No but I will tell you I will tell you that it didn't traumatize me. It wasn't a metoo moment. It was something I empowered lead choose. I could have said No. I wasn't forest. He didn't you know it was. I thought he was adorable and I was just knew at the whole thing and he was just is like grabbed me and said you're at I was like I wanted to be it okay. So there's the bombshell. Our version of what happened with Mick Jagger just to put it in the context of our narrative today it didn't just come out of nowhere you know. She was explaining how she went from child. Child Star to the starve commando and basically in her twenties. She made this long form video with stones and that got her on. MTV and made her very very popular. And that's sort of what led to command. So that's how we got into that right and good. But she'd met Mick Jagger earlier she met him as a fifteen year old which she nodded her head and acknowledge that that was the age when they started in their relationship. Let's say that we don't condone anything. That would be sexual ship with a minor but this was Her telling her story and we were certainly GonNa shout her down at that moment and we're going to let her tell her version and she had more thoughts on. Why a she feels that this was not a rape situation statutory rape situation? And here's Radon Chong explaining more about her relationship. With Mick Jagger mm-hmm I grew up free range in Hollywood. Tommy Chong is my father hello it could have been worse. I was Never Heidi Fleiss tw I always was in charge of myself and I have to say I was. It's never the worst experiences we ever had. As young girls was not with creepy guys that we might have experimented with but we never wanted anything from them. mm-hmm it was just like. Oh that's so until not might be interesting for a second but it was never athletic as young girls growing up it was like it was just it was the seventy S. It was just fun and you know I never was taken advantage of no. It was never like that. It was just like Oh this is fun. Let's go to this recording student. Hang out all night and then you know it was just fun and then it was over. It was over like in my story. It was never traumatizing. It was like okay bye and then a couple times I'd seem here and there whatever growing up and then I was twenty four making a movie in New York City and I ran into them so I could go up and say put me in a movie you guys from Jesus. By this time I felt like I earned it and I did get the call and he he did take a chance on me and then I dig it to star in that thing and it did help me get commando which turned into another thing and the fascinating thing about Mick Jagger is that I he licks licks me in the movie and I didn't like that and I mentioned it in a an article and he has never spoken to me since because I said I didn't like that so isn't that funny so now he's really. I can talk to me because I busted him for underage Mir. Gosh I think I might have seen like a Gif of that licking Tate's gross something. I was in Johnny Pogosyan Johnny. Because he is well he's amazing and I love him and and Johnny because he's a good friend with of Mick Jagger's but that's a separate aside Johnny Gauzy House a the first Selfie book and it's called Pogosyan Friends and I think I'm with my best friend at the time was Mackenzie Phillips. I have a little Afro and Puka shells on. Mackenzie Phillips and friend is not funny book. It was a party for ORB Arnold Schwarzenegger's muscle work. It was called. Stay Hungry and Bob. Racial sens- directed it and the Party was at Jack. Nicholson's House and I was an underage rage thing at that party with my friend. Mackenzie were you aware what was going on with her father first of all. I don't believe that was true and I was there and witnessed witnessed. I witnessed a lot of the the crazy but I don't myself do any of that because my dad one thing. Good about having a father. WHO's a drug expert is at a young age? wjr My dad was like coke will give you a heart attack and we don't do it because it makes you uninteresting heroines off the table because it's not pretty. My Dad was really clear as kids. What what we should do and he's pots? Good psychedelics tastic. So hanging out with my Fran in her father and those guys were so into this other stuff. I never partook of it but I was there and I saw a lot of it and I tell you something in my heart of heart. I believe she wanted to sell books and I believe that she made it up. Because if if you know anything about drugs a junkie only cares about drugs and scoring. Rarely are they that and sexual. It just doesn't if you knew him and I was around him when he was like pretty peaky bad. He was about money in scoring money and scoring. Not The other things so I don't no where she come why she would make that up really. She wants to sell box. And if you talked to Michelle Phillips she feels the same way. I don't think John would do that. I don't think even cared about it. I don't even think his penis worked worked. That's just my that's my take on it like. She made up a story in the book that I did heroin with her at tavern on the green and I didn't I never did heroin Urwin with her. I did heroin in Paris like years later. Four years later I snorted it with a bunch of Turks. I now and it was the only time that I consciously did it. I did it once after that but it was in a joint and I was horrible. I hate that drug. It wasn't my favorite. She wrote about that in a book. She wrote that I did heroin with her at the tavern on the green and I didn't I hung out with her I had. I was there at a dinner when she passed out but I wasn't doing any of her heavy drugs I was too busy hanging. Out With Mick Jagger Right. That's how I met him was through Mackenzie and John said Oh. Wow maybe fifty five times the last stretch. Well she's just so truthful and drops a lot of bombshells You know I think as podcast interviewers we always want our guest to have some colorful anecdotes from their Hollywood pass. But even US experienced us were shocked. By the number of crazy bombshell stories stories that were flying out of Radon Jong. Yeah about Hollywood pass just one catch. You clearly has no qualms about saying them right so just to get. You caught it up with what she's talking about if you got lost in the last stretch. Mackenzie Phillips was the daughter of John Phillips from the Mamas and Papas and Michelle Phillips Candy Philips of course went on to start him on her own. Is this star of one day at a time. She had a lot of struggles with drug abuse. And sometime in the two thousand and ten I WANNA say she. She released her own memoir. She went on Oprah and the big bombshell and that one is that her father had sex with her it was pretty shocking. And it's equally.

"I'm like fifteen eighteen sixteen and they hired me to play this young girl that was the love interest of the youngest kid and then they decided I wasn't Gadoe enough so they hired Janet Jackson Jackson. I got fired by Norman Lear because I wasn't black enough and it was so harsh because I just really wanted the role. What is it? Just just say you're fired. They've they've replaced. You didn't feel like you were ghetto enough. I wasn't neighborhood enough. I come from Canada. We enunciate what can I say. And at that point I didn't really have the chops to do. Imagine coming up where you say acts I mean there it is why I say that and so many worry. Don't don't even tell you that but you know that's what it is because then they hire somebody who says acts. It's an interesting place you're at because you woman of color right here. You're not a woman of color enough. I'm I'm limited color. And I mix so I sort of straddle that and there's so much interracial racism within the community and and then there's cultural racism. There's cultural resistance so it's like. I'm like triple quadruple minority than say you guys would be because you're only half minority in your white man so don't get to fully call that card. I have like a couple Knox like six or seven. You've earned it. I Know Right I. Obviously I really wanted to have an interesting life. I wanted the Gypsy curse and that was my. May you live in interesting life. You're also very headier time because now like you would be. Yeah well what happened though. This is what happened. I would have to hustle like I would go through all the scripts at my agents would get and I would look for four. The nondescript character that was not necessarily male or female that was not really culturally specific. It's called Black Ding. I look for the anti-black Ding role. It was just a person in there. Were interesting so I would say to my agent semi-in on that I would get them to get in on an audition and a lot of times. I get it because I'd be so charming such a hustler and I'd go get it and she was so fun. Yes let's give it to her. I love that so you know she knew what the limitations of the industry were imposing on on her and she found a way to succeed within those limitations right. She made her own path bone. Now she's getting a little bit older. She's in her teens. and Um and now we're getting into probably the most sensational portion of today's podcast right. Ray Don's friendship more than friendship with a certain certain Rockstar. I think this is a bit of an explosive topic so I think we should enter into it not lightly. She's just so candid about everything and Dan also candidate about her reasons for why she does everything so. I don't think it's to talk about it. We're not trying to Gotcha on anybody. So why don't we just get into it. When I was a young underage jail I was hanging out with Mick Jagger and so I knew the stones I never saw the stones stones I was I was not necessarily a fan of the stones but I hung out with with a few times and Super Age? But whatever and then when I was doing being a movie called Beat Street in New York I ran into him and Keith at a bar and they had just finished working on a video and I was like put me in a video. I felt like I had earned it by that point point and I get a phone call three weeks later from Jagger's office saying will you go down to Brazil with Mick. They're doing his solo record and it's going to be kind of like a long form video. Oh called running out of luck and Julien Temple's directing it. Would you be the girl. I was like yes. 'cause I look like a Karaoke and it was perfect so they made me by then I was working and I was coming on. I had done. Choose me I'd done quest for fire so I wasn't not known and I think they thought it would be helpful and it was and it was right at the peak of of MTV so it was a timing thing.

You can be honest with geniuses and I and I read it. I said. Now you haven't written anything in and it back to him. He's what do you mean. Because what he did he really copied Tom Wolfe bonfires the vanity. And he he's got this mine so he just copied Tom and And I and so then he got a little angry with me. So what would you suggest right the stories that you've been telling me every tonight because every night just before we go to sleep you tell me an episode that he had in his life which were incredible and then I told him you gotta follow the most of rule and he says what's that I says. Well if you're going to be high be the highest bad be the baddest you know. Because that's what you WANNA see on film. You don't WanNa see something ordinary. WanNa see something extraordinary and so he he. He didn't have to do merge stretching in fact the stories he told me. Yeah that never made the movie or CR- It's another movie. I mean. His life was so incredible. Incredible just jam packed with everything that that scene about him doing quail and he couldn't crawl down to his car or had a role to his car. And then drive after that.

With the strippers. And there's what you you got an improvisational comedy troupe with strippers. Somehow this again is Canada. I took over a a another failing club. Okay and I put in. The first ban covers for strip joint and And then when I watched I he got fired for Motown I ended up being with nothing to do so I will work the lights at the joint. Excuse me and then. I decided that I should make Improv group out of the girls in in and the guys that were working there and which I did and then I became same part of the act and cheech walk or no. We needed a street and we had a straight man that his wife didn't know what he was doing. The real actor actor. Yeah and so. We made the front page of the news with the with the strippers in their titties. Over phase he's and okay you're out of here and then a mutual friend who works for a I got a guy. That's really funny.

Pro-democracy camp wins Hong Kong elections in landslide
"That aid to let's get back to the political story in Hong Kong now now one of the young activists that won his seat Tommy Chong see are you in he's calling this a tsunami joining us for more on this is Bloomberg in my life he's been following these elections very closely the end symbolically a huge results for the pro democracy forces in Hong Kong but we do have to keep in mind that the the district council is there have too many real powers but they may have some influence on who the next chief executive this can you explain to us how this works yeah absolutely the district councils themselves control sort of community that level policies so parks you know community programs that sort of thing but as a whole the eighteen district councils help appoint a hundred and seventeen of the members on this twelve hundred member committee that then selects the Hong Kong chief executive so last time when Carrie lam the current chief executive was was was nominated went through that process she got seven hundred and seventy seven votes it's it's a service straight you need six hundred fifty percent of the vote to to get appointed so if you want to remove those a hundred and seventeen votes and give them over to the the the pro democracy camp which generally opposes at China's use here you get into the realm of say six fifty seats you know six hundred seats and that's a it's an iffy proposition for Beijing and and especially when it comes time it comes to Hong Kong democracy Beijing likes a hundred percent certainty so we're talking about to two point nine million voters more than seventy percent of all those eligible in Hong Kong we've been focused on the landslide victory for pro democracy voters what about pulp pro establishment what about the other side of the story what are we hearing yes there I mean I've lost they they they dominated they have dominated these councils for years and it's something like you know fifty sixty people winning their seats it's a low low number compared to what they had before and that that it removes an element of certainty that that the that the Hong Kong government could take when they were rolling out policies to to the districts here and and won pro democracy lawmaker this morning made the point to me saying look they have because they control these councils over the years that actually given sort more powers a little bit more funding a little bit more influences some these councils because they were sure that they would do what they wanted and now we're in a situation where they're controlled completely by the opposition effectively so it's they now have slightly more power than they have in the past and are completely controlled by the opposition so even though the legislative councils more powerful it can steamroll over them if they want these are the representatives of the district's it's it's the lowest level of the box you get in Hong Kong so if you start steamrolling over these district councils you know with land projects land reclamation projects any of the big things that happen in Hong Kong it could look really bad and it could potentially spark you know protests in the future during all the unrest that we've seen that China has consistently pointed to the U. S. state using the phrase of the black hands behind all the drama that's been happening in Hong Kong now we do have that bill now the amendment to the Hong Kong policy act now president trump said desk which effectively supports the protesters and Elizabeth Warren tweeting that this is a powerful message for democracy so you can you say with any certainty with the foreign influence had any impact here I'm just trying to have a point I think I think there's been no evidence so far I think there's been lots of accusations from from the from the Beijing side to say you know stop meddling that they've they've talked about Taiwan potentially having influence here I've also talked about the U. K. because of the the colonial history here and there's always the case of the U.

I lost faith in myself, and I just did anything I could do. It was interesting in jersey, New York City area. Yeah. Well, that's what you do. And you know you break down and you just do shit in one bag on trouble. And that I learned my lesson fuck now. Came kept walking around you found out how to get into the best prisons. Yeah. What were you find that it's funny the guy that got me into the best prison died two weeks ago? I got the Email last week, I went to him before I got locked up him and I had similar crimes. So I went to him and he goes, I'll make calls it. So when I got the diagnostic, I really had an end and that's very important. I got the diagnostic and ask for the certain guy, tell Caillebotte censure God rest. Wrestle. And you know I had the best slip is. Same as me when, when, when they were gonna put me in the word went out, you know, and I'm such a celebrity with everybody in, in the system. Mike. So when I got there, it was like a it was a Royal greeting, everybody lined up outside the prison. Are you doing Mr Charles and they said? Before. Tradition, or whatever it is legally, they have to handcuff me to walk in into the door. And then once I'm in the door. They take off the handcuffs. It's just symbolic, because actually, they let me. You know, self. Surrender self surrender. Yeah. In so Vanity Fair sent sent me a writer in a limo to take me from my house to prison and silly wrote to prison in limousine got stopped by the cops for speeding in the driver said, we got Tommy Chong going to prison guys. Okay. Go ahead. No take it does get them into jail. And when I got there when I when they process me in the there was two prisoners main the main joint into. The front of the prison and I was in the camp at the back. And so when you go through the front door, you know, it's real locked down the official language in that prison was Spanish, so, so it was a tough uppers behind, there was the camp and was up full of celebrities, and lawyers, and doctors, and white collar people. And so the guy that had to drive me there. Soon as I got in the truck in the pickup truck, he pulls out a kitchen, Chung album. He's you sign. This for me. And so..
Chinese premier: 'We must be fully prepared for a tough struggle'
"My panel this week are three people who've been following events in China very closely for years in our studio in Beijing. I have Safiya Yan she's the Beijing correspondent of the telegraph newspaper. And she specializes in China's economy. I also have Ian Johnson there with her. He's a Pulitzer prize winning journalist writing out of Beijing and also down the line from Newark, New Jersey, I'm joined by Sarah, sue and communist with the state university of New York as Vincent mentioned, the National People's Congress. China's annual parliamentary meeting is in session, sometimes it can be quite celebrate Tori, a chance for communist leaders to Pat themselves on the back. But this year amid worries about the economy the mood was a bit different. Listen to some of the language from the big speech delivered by the Premier League. Gene yet. And should you engine in the past year? China has faced a complex and severe internal and external situation that has rarely been seen for years. With the economy burying the new downward pressure. But under the staunch leadership of the communist party with president Xi Jinping at the helm, the Chinese people of all ethnic groups forced to head vigorously and fulfilled. Major targets in economic and social development. It also made major progress insecure in a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. So fear, you were at the NPC, and you heard the premier speech, what was the atmosphere like there? Well, like, you would expect any other year. There's been a lot of propaganda and a lot of political theater going on as the NBC kicked off Premier Li Chong speech to take a more muted tone, and it's really marked difference from the sort of environment. We were in at this time last year in China this time last year, president Xi Jinping had scrapped term limits. He looks every bit the unstoppable strongman, but you fast forward a year to now China's really started to kind of roll back rhetoric. It's swagger what it wants to show and the tone that Premier Li had a speech on Tuesday, definitely was kind of walking things back a little bit and just trying to at least, you know, sort of point towards the fact that there are some challenges ahead on the road and trying to manage expectations a little bit more, Ian you travel widely around China. What have you been witnessing in the past year? What's the economic outlook outside of Beijing will one struck? By the fact, that a lot of the things that have driven China's growth over the past decade things like urbanization and big infrastructure projects that this really they've hit a point of diminishing returns, the country's not urbanizing as quickly as before. There aren't as many people moving from the countryside into cities and the big infrastructure projects are still being built, but they're making less and less economic sense. I was I was just in a western city. She and and they're they're building a big high speed rail out to ching high, which is this province on the Tibetan plateau. And this engineer. I was talking to such me. I don't know if this makes any sense at all to build a high-speed railway just isn't the population density is a huge amount of money, we're spending. But these things keep getting built. And I think there's a sense that it just makes less and less sense. And it's true that the government's talking a good game about this. They're trying to make the structural changes. But actually they've been saying this. Now for years, and there is scant evidence that it's really happening yet. All right, Sarah from your vantage point in the United States. What are using their concerns about economic challenges in China that could refer to in his speech. Well, I think that there are a couple of different and opposing views. One of them can be found within members of the Trump administration who view China as a threat and Trump has been pretty interested in this U S, China trade war, which has been going on and has gloated that the US has more power more economic power than China does and can out last China in a trade war. So there's that perspective that is triumphant regarding China's declining growth, and then there's another aspect for firms like apple and Starbucks that are interested in China's growing consumption. China's economic slowdown is a serious barrier to their expansion in that nation and also for people who are interested in selling real estate in certain areas of the country. They see a slowdown in China's foreign direct investment and overseas real estate investment that is very concerning for them. Okay. So we have worries mounting inside China and also Sarah, you mentioned that that bubbling U S China trade war for now. Let's take a closer look at the challenges facing the economy, and how the party is trying to deal with them. It's been said that China has a GDP fetish. And as I mentioned earlier in my conversation with Vincent neither there's a fixation on GDP growth, and what the targeted growth number is, historically. Why is this such a big deal in China in comparison to other major economies so fear? Can you take a stab at that? Well, I so long we've seen double digit growth in the Chinese economy. The slowdown. We're seeing now was always on the docket. And the big question the entire world has asked for by longtime is how fast I slowdown will occur. Because if there's a really big ramp a really fast ramp down China is the world's second largest economy. China's sneezes the rest of the world catches a cold. So that's why all eyes have been on China for so long and this idea GDP targets it's quite measurable for local governments here something that they can try to strive for. It's a number that they can go for and it's a way for a country in this state of the state of development that China is to try to track their own progress, but that's been problematic for a lot of different ways. Because these numbers don't really capture a lot of the nuances that are really happening. And so this shift there is a difference in the pace of growth that we've seen. But again, as I said, it doesn't capture certain nuances that are now starting to happen in the economy as Beijing tries to move from this old growth model of low end, cheap manufacturing, cheap exports towards something that's a little bit more advanced manufacturing towards services higher. Sump shen. Can we trust the numbers coming out of Beijing? Well, we don't have to trust the numbers. But I think we can say that there are fairly consistent and it was fast. And now it's slowing and it's about half or even less than half than it was in the gogo years in the two thousands. So you see this across the board, and this leads to all kinds of social tensions inside China because in the past there was also unequal growth, but all boats for rising, so people were willing to give the government or by because at least things were getting better. And people could always feel that at least their children's feature would be better. And now, it's not so sure a housing prices are unaffordable, it's really hard for young people to buy a place even a second tier or third tier city. It's harder and harder to find work because you have to be really well qualified for this new economy China wants to build so the challenges are really are not less than in the past. And I think that it's it's something it's it's just a series of headaches for the government. So if we look at how Chinese people are dealing with the economic challenges on a day to day basis, maybe they don't mind so much that GDP figures or GDP targets aren't completely accurate, but Sarah, what do you think of outsiders who were who are looking at China? And it's progress does it matter that they might be questioning the veracity of the numbers coming out of Beijing. Of course. So people are concerned, I'm outside of China, and even within China that a lot of the growth is created by this artificial stimulus that it's government expansion of credit as well as fiscal stimulus that is responsible for economic growth now. But I just want to go back for a moment. I noted that people in China may not be concerned with the GDP figure. I think that people are concerned about growth itself and there. Our own circumstances. And I think that some people are concerned about whether they're going to maintain their employment in the future. Now, the situation is becoming increasingly dire in terms of the job market. And I think that you know, this is something that people are really keeping an eye on.

You'd like to see is there a thing that happens. Well, I mean, we're talking about the the offscreen death. We're talking about offscreen anything. But yeah, that's a good example. We know Chongli killed a guy there. We should let me see that clip. Are there other moments like that in here for me? I mean, that's the obvious one.

I love Victor Lynn the fixer slash, I'm gonna show you around Hong Kong slash. Yeah. He becomes their manager out of nowhere just shows up. And he's like, hey, I'm Victor, and like cool man, you could be our sherpa around Hong Kong. I wanna see him taking us around Hong Kong when he gives us that story about there's regular Hong Kong. And then you step out sunlight, he takes them through the dark passageways and give me that I could use very charming little more. Frank dukes backs military backstory. Right. I wanna know. What he was doing. I wanna know how he ended up there. The captain as a captain how he made his way up the ranks in the US military as just apparently just to kickboxer weekly quickly talk about the time line. Okay. This is like so we see him as a very low like a very large breaking artists teenager with an accident right here. And all of a sudden he's supposed to supposed to be as Ray Jackson said. Hey, kid. You're so young you in this. And he says you're too old to be playing video games. So at some point even though not much time has elapsed. He goes from break in artists to very young captain and in between trains to become a lethal fighting machine in the Kuartei. Did he didn't flinch within the sword game? That was an early Koby. Matt Barnes meme. Didn't didn't flinch and they knew he had it Winstons? Oh swipes sword. Absolutely in front of his face, which is wildly dangerous and irresponsible child endangerment. If he sneezes he gets his fucking forehead sliced off right there. That's bad business. I wanna know where just was on that. Oh, you mean the weird setup where there are bunch of kids being tied up with ropes in the back. Off stretch investigate. I wanna know we I'm gonna cheat a little bit here because we I don't know that this happened. But I feel like. One of the main driving forces. We find this out later on we find this out when Frank and Chong Lee, finally get ready to fight. The right before they're about to fight is win. Charlie finally talks to Frank again. And he says you break my record. Now, I break you like regular friend, right? He was carrying that from the very first fight of the tournament or from Franks. I fight the whole rest of the way like he was upset about that. And if you go back in your re watch anytime that people are cheering for him. He goes nuts. He's he's jumping around being doing that very weird. Silence celebration. Right. But when they start cheering for Frank dukes when Frank breaks his record anytime Frank does something good.

"Another interesting mission. This one is this is a story unfolding, and this is the Chinese launched their Chong of four Lander or trauma four mission. And they're going to be putting their next Lander. And this time onto the far side of the moon in this, of course. Yes. The side of the moon that faces away from there is no dark side. But there is a far side. And for the first time we're going to see the surface of the far side of the moon is as a little Chinese Rovers going to noodle around. And and the complexity was being able to re transmit data back to earth. And so the rope they China has already launched a a relay satellite station. Yeah. To the to the far side. And so it's going to be able to transmit whatever the the Rover. See so the the relay satellite is in position. And right now the. Lander Rover is on its way to the moon, and we're going to see the whole thing unfold next year.

So we did the sweat lodge, Jerry Saturday in prison in prison. Yeah, no way always sounds like a spa. Yeah. Yeah. Well, it's a little heavier than that. It's at large right. You know. But yeah, every federal prison has to have a sweat lodge. It's mandated by law and so so I would spend actually most of my time at the sweat lodge because it was on the grounds was thrown. It was so it was sacred properties. They ground animals snakes and lizards, and birds and rabbits would come into the into the grounds, knowing that it was sacred. Birds would be that we could touch them. Snakes would crawl up once I had it was it was really like a garden of Eden. It was. It was so holy. And in when we in in the largest south, you know, we played drums in the chant ancient Lakota chance and and. One time the prison wintered show up there prison. Okay. Everybody in their get out, come on. We all had to get out there stand there. They can't search because we were just inner shorts anyway, you know, we're just dripping wet with sweat and so they they, they just wanted to show off their their power, you know? And it was like it was like an intrusion. It was like having a party in the neighbor calls the cops on you, you know? So then after they left and we went back and finished her sweat. That was it. That was the man, Tommy Chong. Thank you sir. For doing the show what a conversation? I'm alright, the subjects covered. I mean covered it all.

"There is a shadow government. It's called a military because they're the ones that are in charge of the tonic, you know. And so the military says, Kelly get in there keeping her in Trump Kelly's in there because Kelly even said that I wasn't sent here to change the there. Saint Hussein, did you he was hired supposedly hired by by Trump? No, he was hired by the Republicans and the end. So Kelly's got a lock on them. Everybody's got a lock on him. And now as Muller gets closer and closer, they've got all the evidence he need to impeach him, but they're not gonna teach him because he's still doing what they want him to do. The cut taxes, the military budget. They got everything the Republicans want. They're getting it, but do you think that my friend has his theory and I'm interested to hear your thoughts on it as far as Trump goes. 'cause. You know whether or not Russia did interfere in the election and it's proving that they probably did. In my experience, I've come into contact with a lot of Trump voters and a lot of people that were behind them and even more upsetting where people that just who said, who were like me, like left leaning liberals from coastal cities who said, I don't agree with him, but I can't vote for her, which was even I was like, you're, you're crushing me. But my buddy said, we got the president that we deserved. He's a fucking representation of we as a people and and this is it. Yeah. Well, you can look at it though, but you don't want to do you to take these things person ever. You know, that's why you lose say as far as Hillary. Here we was trying to have the throne, the crown pastor her, you know, that doesn't work that way, you know, and and so over Bama was really and everybody Republicans, everybody else. He said, well, she deserves it. She's she's a woman. She's she's got a lot of great ideas. She's she's gonna, do great for the country. Everything else and the right. You're right. But she still, she's got all that Bill Clinton baggage chassis. And so we would have been better off with Elizabeth Warren. If you wanna get real and not Bernie, no. Now Bernie Bernie because earnings too old to set in his ways and he's and he's too pedantic. Yeah, he's still weird, but. But you need you in there if you need youth. I gotta say, Tom, if Bernie Sanders can't get a Tommy Chong endorsement, he was never gonna make it. I was trying, I know, endorsed Bernie in the beginning. Oh yeah. And then the then there are some people that want me to introduce them at a rally and then Bernie's people nixed. They said, no, they don't do want to be so associated with Tommy Chong. I'll gimme a break. I'm trying. That's backwards. I know. I know. But I, you know, there is a part of me that feels as though the people were dissatisfied with the status quo of how they imagined that politics worked, be it left or. Right? And so there was like an my same buddy always calls it like anarchy light where they were like, we need an outlier someone to fix this screwed up system that it seems that anyone that's groomed from the beginning in it is incapable of doing unfortunately, they picked the wrong fucking outlier in this guy. Donald Trump like they just saw him disagree with yet. Totally, totally. Donald Trump is. Here's a product. We're in a physical world. Okay. For every action. There's a reaction. For every Brock Obama. There's a Donald Trump. And it has to be that way because we're in the physical world, it's out or daughter, you know, just because you're on top, you're on top until the other guy pushes. Yup, because there's nowhere to go except down and so that's where the country was at?.
Infamous blood testing company Theranos is shutting down
"As we first reported last may homes founded the startup theranos and boasted her technology could take a pinprick worth of blood from the finger and perform hundreds of laboratory tests, it was she claimed quote, the most important thing humanity has ever built at a zenith theranos was worth nearly ten billion dollars. And Elizabeth Holmes became the youngest self made female billionaire in the world today. She and her companies one time president STAN criminally charged by the US government of perpetrating a multimillion dollar scheme to defraud investors doctors and patients you're about to hear from insiders how the theranos deception worked. Our work is in. Being able to make testing more accessible Elizabeth homes built her company theranos on this invention. She named the Edison a miniaturized blood analyzer that would disrupt the sixty billion dollar lab testing industry dominated by giants Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics homes called her invention. The ipod of healthcare, and it made her a celebrity, she greased magazine covers and was praised by politicians and the press alike. Founded this company twelve years ago, right? Tell him old your I was nineteen. The woman who I will be interviewing needs no introduction. She sold her vision with grandiose claims that her blood tests would cost a fraction of current prices. What we're doing in just pricing is saving Medicare and Medicaid hundreds of billions of dollars on an annual basis. Homes. Biotech startup was backed by a lustrous board packed with national security heavyweights like Henry Kissinger and James Mattis. The current Defense Secretary the board was filled with friends of George p Shultz the former secretary of state who helped end the Cold War. He introduced his grandson Tyler to homes dazzled Tyler Schultz became a believer in joined the company soon after getting his degree in biology from Stanford University when you met her and you heard about Elizabeth homes vision. What did you think I was totally sold on it? Tyler Schultz began working at theranos in September two thousand thirteen. It was a pivotal moment. As the company announced a partnership with Walgreens, the deal would put an Edison machine in every store. Elizabeth Holmes claimed the Edison performed all the tests big lab machines like these could from cholesterol to cancer. Oh from a painless finger prick the Tyler shoot says the Edison he saw just didn't work. Was it a sophisticated visa machinery? No, there were components that would kind of fall off in the middle of testing that you would have to fish out. They had doors that wouldn't close. They would get too hot. And then they will get too cold. What I was there. We could not complete any test accurately on the devices that we were manufacturing matchy joined theranos in two thousand twelve after getting his doctorate in biochemistry. His job was to adapt. Blood tests for the Edison. Tests, which homes told investors were ready to use on patients. But Elizabeth homes had told Walgreens in two thousand ten that it had developed this device that was capable of running any blood test from a few drops pricked from a finger in real time and less than half the cost of traditional laps was that true. No. Do you think she was lying to Walgreens? I do. Are you a Clinical Lab specialist? No, Erika Chong was fresh out of Berkeley with a degree in molecular and cell biology when she went to work at theranos, she was just twenty two but even the novice lab techs, suspected something was very wrong. When she saw faulty test results sent a Walgreens patients when did you think I probably shouldn't be doing this? Pretty pretty soon in the process, especially when we started to pick up more patients ampoules, and when those samples were retested she says there were often contradictory results. Did you ever alert the patient? Now, we didn't let them know. Hey, we ran your patient sample, and we're not actually positive about what the diagnosis this is. Someone's health information exactly this isn't an ABC crashing this. Isn't you know, someone's food delivery coming late? That's just a different ballgame. It's not the only game. Elizabeth Holmes was playing theranos employees told us they were instructed to stage fake demonstrations for investors who visited company headquarters, it was kind of a show. All they would see you was there blood getting collected. They didn't see what was going on behind closed doors about how it was processed. They will get their finger prick this all out of blood, then they'd be let out of the room. They go have a meeting. Go. Have lunch whatever and which plan and GM would run in the room grab the cartridge bringing down to the lab. So was the Edison doing the testing? Absolutely. Who was doing the testing scientists at the bench by hand. It was a bayton. Switch for investors that kept the money rolling in theranos raised nearly nine hundred million dollars from those investors who now say they were swindled by Elizabeth homes and company. President Ramesh sunny bull Wani the pair claimed investor documents obtained by sixteen minutes, the theranos technology was validated by the FDA pharmaceutical companies and was deployed on the battlefield by the US military in Afghanistan. Those claims were fabricated and in one public appearance after another homes is pitch became even more fantastic. And reckless we've done some work with people at Hopkins who have developed in demonstrated that in blood, you can see the onset of pancreatic cancer seventeen years before a tumor forms. We call Johns Hopkins medicine, they told us they never collaborated with theranos and Doug matchy says test data he compiled for the food and Drug administration was falsified. There was so much pressure from above to get good looking results that are going to be able to pass FDA guidelines that people were pressured into making things disappear bad results. That's deceptive. For sure did you ever go to your boss and say, this isn't right, absolutely. All the time. But you know, he was under a lot of pressure from the people above him. And he was his best to make to make everyone. Happy this invention. It's going to be way up there. With the discovery of antibodies day to day operations were run by company. President sunny ball Wani Wani is a millionaire software engineer with no training in the biological sciences. But he did have a powerful connection to Elizabeth homes. Sonny Bono money was her secret boyfriend some people are here because of the mission because some people are opiate for the science. Money was also homes in four, sir. Firing employees is on the spot and berating scientists for failed tests after year and a half matchy quit. I saw that. There was a potentially fraud taking place there was far too much. Illegitimate things going on there talked to Sonny decided they want to be there anymore and left. Tyler Schulz was also becoming disillusioned I had a personal relationship with Elizabeth. She was close to my family. And I felt like she was deceiving my family and the public little tight end almost every media outlet, including us here at CBS body into the theranos a healthcare pioneer is being compared to visionaries like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Do you think she wanted to be the next Steve Jobs? She does a really idolize him. So she wore the black turtleneck thinks she created a world where she was Steve Jobs for a little bit. As her wealth and reputation soared Elizabeth Holmes took on the trappings of power. She bragged bulletproof windows were installed in her office. And she traveled with a full-time security detail. Their nose employee's told us they were closely watched and required to sign nondisclosure agreements. All reinforced they said by a threatening team of lawyers in private investigators. That's why when Tyler shorts alerted authorities in the spring of two thousand fourteen he used a fake name. Why did you come up with an alias? I knew how seriously theranos protected their trade secrets I knew they would not take welfare knew that. I was talking to regulators easy meal to New York State Department of health regulators Schulz outlined questionable lab is and said he believed test results were being switched. I said this happened in my laboratory, and I just want to know if this is okay. And there is funded and said, no this is cheating. This is not how it's supposed to be done. Tyler Schultz was ready to resign. But I he sent Elizabeth homes and Email about his concerns. He got a response from sunny ball Wani that I was arrogant, ignorant, patronizing, reckless. And I was lacking the basic understanding of math science and statistics that if I had any other last name that I would have already been held accountable to the strongest extent Tyler Schulz quit in April two thousand fourteen and soon after Erika Chong did too by February two thousand fifteen the theranos fairy tale was about to unravel publicly at the Wall Street Journal Pulitzer prize winning reporter, John Kerry ru who was written a book about the theranos saga. Got a call. It was a tipster casting doubt about the Edison theranos and its charismatic founder, Elizabeth homes. She is. Is a pathological liar. She wanted to be a celebrated tech entrepreneur she wanted to be rich and famous, and she wouldn't let anything get in the way of that. What kind of job did the board do in holding homes accountable? This is one of the most epic failures in corporate governance in the annals of American capitalism. They did nothing to verify that her scientific claims were true Kerry ruse, I started cool appeared in October two thousand fifteen and revealed theranos did less than ten percent of its tests on Edison machines. What do you think's going on here homes struck back? This is what happens when you work to change things. And I they think you're crazy, then they fight you. And then all of a sudden you change the world. Let's skeptics we're no longer buying the theranos deception what I'm showing you. Now is the result of hundreds of engineers and scientists work homes repeatedly insisted she would present proof that a major industry. Conference that her technology worked. It can see the tray dropping into the Texan module. There was proof that never came and the evidence that you presented fell far short of that in two thousand sixteen after a series of surprise inspections. Federal regulators shut down the company's laboratory saying it posed immediate jeopardy. Patient health and safety. Nearly one million theranos test results were invalidated once. She started using this technology on the blood samples taken from consumers in Walgreens stores that was an unauthorized, medical experiment. There's no other way to put it theranos was on the brink of collapse. Big name investors found their stock was worthless. Education secretary Betsy DeVos in her family and media mogul Rupert Murdoch each lost more than one hundred million dollars. Walgreens, Sube theranos and settled for less than a quarter of. One hundred and forty million dollar investment. Why do you think this was outright fraud as opposed to any other Silicon Valley startup that just wasn't able to deliver on lofty goals because she raised money hundreds of millions of dollars on the basis of this technology, not only being ready and working but being commercially rolled out? You're also lying to the public relying the patients, you're lying doctors. You're lying regulators. Most people would call that fraud as well the securities and Exchange Commission called it massive fraud when they charged Elizabeth homes and sunny Bonnie in March home settled the SEC case without admitting guilt and paid half a million dollar fine. Bonnie who left theranos two years ago calls the SEC charges unwarranted and is fighting
