"It was a very lucrative business. So to be able to associate with these people to make them look good to write poems, compose poems with them, that was good for business. So it was definitely advantageous. I'm not sure if it was required or if it was necessary, but it certainly did help. So up to this point we've covered the sources we've covered who these merchants were, why they're going out to see where they're coming from. And as a final closing question, I was just wondering, in your research in your opinion, do these merchants have a bigger role to play? Earlier you had said that during the Tang dynasty trade was more tight, diplomacy, whereas after the Tang dynasty, private trade becomes more for the sake of private trade. So did these merchants have a bigger contribution aside from simply trading goods? In terms of their role in society and between societies and across regions, they were doing a lot of a lot of different things. So first of all, they were trading prestige goods. Very, very expensive items. It seems that early on that was mainly what they were trading. Do you have some examples of what these prestige goods were? Yeah, so from Japan, Japan would just be giving gold straight up gold, gold dust, some other products as well, even some manufactured products from fairly early early on. But gold, that's what the Chinese and Korean merchants wanted from Japan the most. And in return, they would get ceramics. That was a very big item, silks, they would be getting medicines, foodstuffs, it was mainly prestige goods, probably from the 9th century on but afterwards and around the 11th century and afterwards you see more commodities. Japan starts trading sulfur, sulfur becomes a very big export, China starts shipping out lots and lots, tens of millions of copper coins to Japan and what they're trading what's important begins to change. So in terms of trade goods, those were the hot items, but it was not only that there was also an exchange of religion. So Chinese and Korean merchants were shipping monks back and forth between the Korean Peninsula and China between Japan and China and along with those monks were texts, sculptures, Buddhist images. That was also important. There were ideas. So books probably about one or two centuries before private trade began, the embassies were bringing back books about Confucianism and Chinese philosophy. So ideas were going back and forth as well. And one final thing that hasn't gotten a lot of attention is that immigration was a big thing too. We know that Chinese were going to the Korean Peninsula since the fall of the Han dynasty and earlier. And Chinese were also setting up communities in Japan as well. At first, there was one main community in hakata, which is present day fukuoka. But then you see indications of Chinese setting up communities on that same island and later in other areas as well. And then, of course, in later centuries, there's Chinese communities in Osaka and ryukyu and Tokyo and whatnot. So the flow of people was also important. And a lot of these people moved on merchant ships. Yeah, I mean, we're not just going to Japan, right? But also to Southeast Asia where you see all these Chinese merchant colonies popping up, especially when we get to the early modern period in the 16th and 17th century, and even the initial arrival of the Europeans didn't disrupt this dynamic and destroyed. In fact, the Europeans got very much involved and they helped push it along..

"And it's just a collection of I think about 18 poems and 7 letters and almost all of it is written by merchants. But the reason they were preserved was because they were letters to the monk and chain. And the temple where enchin where he operated on Joji, they kept that information, I think, because it was relative to the patriarch of their sect. So it made end chain look good, really. You have all these poems written on his behalf, giving respect to him, discussing Buddhism. It painted engine in a very good light. It's hard to really speculate what the motivations are, but it made engine look good, and I would assume that that might have been the reason why it was preserved. And do you think then that there are literary abilities would have helped them in their trading ventures? That's a good question. And I absolutely do think so. Because there's a lot of power in writing, especially in the old days, you know, a thousand years ago, there weren't many people who are literate. If you were literate, you were essentially belonging to an elite culture. And in East Asia, the dominant form of writing was, of course, syndic Chinese writing. So these merchants by virtue of being able to compose poems to write these very nice letters to comment on the classical Chinese texts, they were participating in this elite form of culture that you could see not only in the Chinese capital in the Chinese courts, but you could also see it in the Korean courts and in the Japanese courts and among Japanese aristocracy. So that kind of allowed them to associate with these types of people. And these people were their customers. In Japan, it was the aristocracy. It was the court that was buying Chinese goods. They were spending a lot of wealth to get these goods..

"Best place to look for maritime trade is Japanese sources. Because the Chinese sources from the Tang dynasty onward. So until about until about the early tenth century, most of what you have regarding commerce was all recorded in the dynastic records, and those were very much restricted towards what you could write about how you could write about something. And talking about merchants, it was it was at times derogatory to call someone a merchant. It wasn't something somebody wanted to be called because there were implications that it was morally inappropriate that you were amassing wealth. You were greedy. So if you're only looking at legal codes or dynastic chronicles, what you're going to see about merchants, most of it's not going to look very good. So it's going to be limited in what they're talking about a lot of the times they talk about people amassing too much wealth or the sons of merchants kind of sneaking into the exams once some way finding out how to take the civil service exams so they can enter the government. There's a lot of disdain in these types of records. But after that, once the Tang dynasty collapses and there's decentralization, some of these states, especially in the south of China, they're taking on mercantile list policies and commerce becomes very important to the survival of these states. So you see in these official histories, commerce becoming more important, there's more discussion of maritime trade. And then, by the Song dynasty, of course, like I said, this is when there's a lot more written materials available, not just from the official government sources, but all kinds of guys and records private records from individuals..

"Welcome to the Chinese history podcast. I'm aiming her. And I'm Greg Sadler. Today our topic is maritime C trade in East Asia during the period, which is roughly around the tenth to the 12th century. Now, in recent decades, scholarship on maritime sea trade in early modern East Asia, that is around the 15th, 16th, 17th, and 18th century, has really taken off and there are a lot of books and articles published on this subject, but I find that scholarship on maritime trade during the Taunton period is still somewhat lacking. Now obviously this is a topic that you've been working on for a long time. So could you start by telling us what attracts you to this period? Yeah, that's a good question. Right now there's a lot of scholarly attention on the tongue song transition. I think what a lot of scholars are attracted to is that it kind of goes beyond political dimensions. There's a lot of changes happening and so after the Tang dynasty collapses, these changes are going into periods where there's this union. There's small states. And then they carry on until the next empire. So I think what a lot of scholars are interested in is just kind of figuring out what's driving these changes. What's going on? What are the continuities? What are the big major changes how they affect society, the economy? And of course, politics is a major topic as well. And for those who don't know about the tonsil transition, can you briefly explain what historians mean when they refer to a Tang song transition? So in about the year 7 55 around that time, there's a big massive massive rebellion there and lussan rebellion. And that pretty much devastates the north of the country. It causes massive patterns of decentralization and that really I think spurs on. That's really the kickstart of the transition. So as the capital, the political elites and the capital tried to maintain their power, try to claw back power over the outlying provinces. There's other trends going in place. It seems that there's a lot less government regulation going on from the center. So suddenly we see a lot of economic activity, particularly in the southeast and the south along the coast. There's a lot of economic activity that's spurred in these areas. And there's also movement of people. I mean, the trends of Chinese people moving to the south that can be traced all the way back to the end of the Han dynasty in the third century, but this an lushan rebellion really spurs this big change. There's people fleeing towards the south, fleeing towards other areas..

The History of Cannabis

"Turns out we have geology to thank for cannabis. At least for cannabis's psychoactive properties. The ancient ancestors of the cannabis plant started growing tens of millions of years ago around. What is now central asia like pakistan northern india nepal. And then something dramatic happened the entire subcontinent. That is now. India drifted north crashed into asia. The crumple zone is what we now call. The himalayas and the cannabis plants that were growing in that zone. Got really really high and the ones that were stuck down low the plains near the himalayas. Well they didn't get quite so high is difference is both topographical and literal the cannabis. The grew in the mountainous region started producing thc. Which or the uninitiated is the chemical in cannabis. That gets you high. We don't know for certain. Why the plant produces it. It appears serve kind of sunscreen. Chris duval is a professor at the university of new mexico and author of two books on the topic. The african roots of marijuana and cannabis kris told us that the cannabis that stayed down low and temperate plains. Those plans did not produce. thc they became. What we know is hemp source of cloth rope and disgusting. Health foods cannabis grew really easily and a lot of different environments especially ones. We disturbed to build settlements. It was literally a weed. That's why we call it weed. And so there was probably a lot of cannabis just growing in central and east asia both the high mountainous regions and the low parts and so a really longtime ago as long as maybe twelve thousand years ago people figured out ways to use it. It appears for both populations. Initially people used it for the seeds which are edible You know you can buy them in. Eat them nowadays. Emcees are often founded natural food stores. Today they're full of wonderful nutrients but they taste terrible. And before you all right in and tell me i'm wrong. not only to. Cynthia agree with me. The historical record does to kris told us that in china hemp seeds were at one point considered a staple food but it was kind of slowly replaced as people in that region in china.

"The thylacine one only two marsupials known to have a pouch for both sexes. The other species which is still with us is the water possum. From central and south america the pouch of the mail file seen served as a protective sheath for their genitals making them sort of internal external genitals roughly two thousand years ago the pouched predator behind to disappear from papua new guinea and australia perhaps due to competition from the dingo the dingo is considered to be the first introduced species sienna though. No one's quite sure who introduce them. Among the front runners are indian mariners. Who may have traveled to australia. The seafaring lupita people who spread eastward into the pacific from east asia or traders from t- more and taiwan who sailed through southeast asia. The dingo began out competing. The thylacine centuries before european settlement at which point there were around five thousand of them left. Things got markedly worse for the tigers. In tasmania after sheep were introduced in eighteen twenty four. The european settlers took a dim view to native animals eating the livestock. They'd introduced into the predators environment within a few years cash. Bounties were offered to encourage people to hunt them despite contemporary evidence that stray dogs and poor ranch management were killing most of the sheep. Nope gotta be these animals. We didn't ask for to the bounty hunting. The combo punch of extensive habitat destruction and invasive diseases like mange and the population diminished rapidly. The last living thylacine was captured in the wild in nineteen thirty three before being taken to the bowmer assu also known as the hobart zoo the remains of which you can skulk through today if you're into urban exploring and don't mind the risk of being arrested for trespassing

"Collaborated with balenciaga. On a new collection or did it. Did it really collaborate. This about gucci's most recent runway show called aria. It was billed as a collaboration between the two fashion houses. But instead gucci's creative director allesandro michelle hacked balenciaga's designs. The best description of what happened came from fashion east asia which said the hacking meant taking balenciaga designs and throwing it in a blender with gucci signature looks. It was a mix. I agree with that. It's a little hard to describe. Because it's not inspired by balenciaga. It's more than that and they did. Steal from balenciaga because both fashioned houses in on this. They both like this was going to happen. Michelle said about the collection quote in any great saga. No one knows what is real and what is not deep thoughts. Remember too that. These fashion houses are owned by the same pair company. They're both are owned by caring. So i want to describe a little bit about what came down the runway again. This was a gucci show. Where the designs have balenciaga elements including balenciaga leading boots but covered in gucci logo. There are some balenciaga florals. But what the name gucci a classic gucci jackie bag but printed with the word balenciaga gucci. Kind of took elements and silhouettes and mashed up g. q. Wrote about it quote. It was indeed less a collaboration than a mind. Fuck and the best possible way. I also agree with that. Statement the response to the show is really mixed some analysts. Some fashion people loved it.

How Bitcoin's vast energy use could burst its bubble

"Today. Many mainstream media articles describe bitcoin as an environmental disaster in reality it relies heavily on renewable energies estimates range from thirty nine percent to seventy four percent consumes a lot of strand excess energy and could very well have a mostly green future but given the poorly informed narratives around the subject one could imagine a world in which the biden administration restricts bitcoin mining as part of a green new deal the to bitcoin problem is perhaps the biggest existing threat to bitcoin users. Today if the top twenty five global exchanges in the us eu in east asia agreed to end user withdrawals then that would effectively bifurcated system. Bitcoin inside the bubble would be waitlisted and bitcoin. Outside could be blacklisted. Meaning if a merchant accepts bitcoin from you that is not on a certain list. They'd be running a risk. No matter how private you are with your bitcoin. It wouldn't matter you need to find people willing to accept your bitcoin with no trail. Such laws would force users into peer to peer markets. Where buyers don't care about coin history even still. There are a lot of barriers to this attack. Exchanges with lose millions of customers and billions of dollars business the defy ecosystem would potentially collapse given it relies on users being able to purchase eath dollars on big exchanges and then withdraw to trading platforms like swab companies in the space would vigorously resist any change that would prevent citizens from withdrawing bitcoin or any cryptocurrency.

Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha

"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone. You in south america. So what we're beginning to see. Is they celebrate to ship in. New york is named spear pm. He's now taken for neo his packaged. It's not just in its physical formats but in the narrative that used salads and last year. I think it's early this year. It got the national distribution across the united states in whole foods. You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet. But then we've sent entrepreneurs coming here and repackage it into something that selling like a lot because it resonates resonates with the health and wellness movements the big trend going on in the

Business Lessons with Michael Teoh

"Michael is served fortune. Five hundred companies across forty one countries. Michael take a minute and filling for the tidbits about your law. Thank you so much andrew into all of you listening to this podcast and watching our interview right now lonzo doctrine that's a piece greeting from where i'm from kuala lumpur malaysia nestled in the heart of asia. Just in between singapore and thailand. A little bit tidbit about me is that i'm very grateful. Where during one of my productivity trainings. That i deliver to leaders around the world. It happened in malaysia. On one fine day. Web president barack obama actually visited my training. The president came for half an hour and it left me pleasantly surprised. Though i was shocked and i didn't know what to say for the next one minute. It was an awkward silence but the president gave his signal that i could carry on and then i carried the session on for the next thirty minutes and then the president came up took the stage gave his speech and we had a great time to connect with each other he gave a very very kind testimonial to the work that i was doing for the valla people because at the end of the day andrew really. I believe it's people like us many hardworking people out there watching this interview right now. Who's listening in. We are the ones that make the world goes round. We are the ones that put food on the table and we are the ones that really the movers and shakers many of us unsung heroes again. Thank you again andrew. And that's one of the reasons why i wanted. I was so excited to agree to be given this opportunity even to appear on your show again. Thank you andrew fantastic. You know. it's an interesting thing. Michael that as a financial guy. A lotta times. I spent my and i've spent my years during the performance of companies. And you know what. I've come to learn over. The years is that financial success has to do with two things number one the leader of the company if it's a bad leader in a bad direction that they choose. It's very hard to have strong. Financial success true so number one is the leader and the number two thing. is that what i've learned. In my opinion you don't need superstars. You need good qualified people but what you need is coordination amongst the management team. That's if you have a good leader and coordination amongst the land management team. That is the secret sauce. And so for all those people listening out there. If you think you're gonna find it in a financial statement. It's not there. Because remember as i always teach in my teaching of people in management i always say and particularly to my finance students finance adds no value. And what i mean by that is that finance is a mirror it is a reflection it is a way. It is a feedback mechanism for management team to judge the impact of their decisions. So i like people to understand particularly financial people. I know a lot of financial friends. Listen to this podcast. I want financial. People always keep in mind. That finance is a supporting function. Just as much as human resources and others and if you go into business only with a focus on finance you'll never get there but if you go into business with focus on management leadership strategy in building a team. That works together. It's unstoppable spot on andrew spa and also. I think you know the other thing about i. I often say to small and medium-sized businesses. Never fear giant businesses. Yeah they are so messed up. They can't easily coordinate. The activities of their management team and of the different business units a very difficult thing to do and they've also fallen prey to the the idea of. Kpi's in the sense that everybody has a key performance indicators that they're pushing and all the sudden you have everybody working hard in their own area but few people thinking about how to coordinate that effort and that's why the coordination of the management team is what really can said a small medium sized business apart and make an impact anyways. Those are those. What's your i mean. You've you've done a lot with large as well as small and medium-sized businesses. What are some of the takeaways. Let's just say there's there's listeners here to do have small and medium-sized businesses. What are some of the things that you've learned over the years. I believe one of the things. Andrew that i've just had the fortune to work with is with fortune. Five hundred companies as you mentioned across forty one countries and i agree with you spot on and you mentioned some of these large companies. They have a lot of challenges when they're not coordinated or even if the global headquarters is shoes a directive but when it comes to a localization part if they do not work or respect local partners to work with it doesn't work and one thing i find having coach one hundred fifty. Sme's during this pandemic because it is during this time where truth be told andrew if you would ask me. Is it my first preference to work with sms. Truth be told. It's not reason being because during this pandemic when it hit malaysia we ran into a lot now immediately all out. Huge corporate clients decided to freeze training. Funds decided to freeze employees development funds. And i realized that s my business was suffering yet. I didn't wanna give up so what i felt was. Hey if the big boys or the big corporates are not able to pay me. Where else can i bring my company. Where else can pivot. And where else can i add tremendous value. Because i'm a believer if you wanna get paid in. Whatever you're doing do not ask us of what people could give you but instead ask what you can give people so i started asking myself. What value can i give. And that was. When i realized that a lot of sme's struggling they were shutting down. And then i realized that. I coach i train. I guide a lot of bit. Corporates on sales marketing on how to happen entrepreneurial jal thinking and i thought i'm just going to bring all this formula that i've learned from all these big companies and i'm going to localize it personalized to sme's and that was how we help them generate five to six figures revenue during the time when everyone was closing shop independent lockdown that hit malaysia. And then people heard about us across the region and that was how we got invited across south east asia and part of the united states to do trainings consulting and even some mentoring virtually. But if you were to ask me what i really respect from. Sme's that were willing to at least fight. During this pandemic is their willingness that openness to be jal and to be nimble and to assure a-team that things are going to be uncertain. They're going to be uncertain if physician change of a drop of a hat. They must have be emotional audacity the strength to cope with it and to just have that faith that better things will come

Epic Games Puts Down Another $20M in Fortnite Prize Pools

"Certainly been an interesting year for epic games the developer of faith and its continued pushing the game into new territories, especially when it comes to interactive media and branding but they're also taking on Apple in an ongoing lawsuit. Apparently that lawsuit has really threaten the company's bottom line too bad though as yesterday epic announced another twenty million dollars would be put down for fortnite tournaments back in 2018 for the 2019 and 2020 Sears epic kok to put down 100 million dollars in total prizes on fortnite Esports events, and they came through they gave out a hundred million dollars over the last two years. The biggest paychecks came out of the former World Cup, which South forty million dollars awarded between the qualifiers and the main event many other events put up a couple of million here a couple of million. They're you know casual things in any other sport these would like a game. Massive Flagship events for epic. They were just a continuation of a huge promise. One of those events was the fortnite Champions series better known as the fmcs is the closest continuous structures. Fortnite Esports has ever had that event last year had a solid 3 million dollar prize pool yesterday. They announced the fortnite Champions series was jumping to twenty million dollars for the 2021 season off epic blog posts. They made it clear where exactly the money's going. First of all it's being more heavily weighted on winners than in the past where qualifiers would paid out pretty nicely this you gotta make the finals if you want any do here's how the twenty million dollars breaks down. The first important split is between the F and C S and yet unnamed mid season and end-of-year events. The fmcs will have twelve million dollars for its thorns. Well eight million is being held for events based off winners and qualifiers in previous f n c s events, so they're like part of the ecosystem but they're not part of the four individual Seasons wage. Brings me to the next split that twelve mil is being split among the 4f NCS Seasons leaving 3 mil per season. The seasons will happen along with the actual Seasons with the first one month beginning in late January early February. I believe don't have the date in front of me and ending in mid-march and so on and so forth through spring summer fall you guys you guys are seasons work. The final split is across seven different regions. And this is where it gets a little bit more confusing. Those seven regions are Europe Brazil Oceania the wage East Asia and then n a but it's split into two regions. Each one is not weighted equally either Europe has one point three million dedicated specifically to it the highest of any prize pool sneeze to Regions combined finish at just under 1. Mil Sil is next with three hundred grand then Asia with a hundred and fifty Grand Middle East with 120 and Oceania with ninety. It's both a bath. Viewership as well as a catering to where the best players are that make up for that

I believe and rose rises. Now in the business of pioneering the power that matters so tell us more about the journey business. That rose is in today and your role as the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose rice. Well has been rooted in engineering since we established in eighteen. Eighty four and this expertise has evolved the business to become one of the world's leading industrial technology company that we today and as the president for the region covering southeast asia pacific and south korea. I'm responsible for the regional strategy our external relations and governance of all our operations across the three businesses that we have civil aerospace is one of them manufactures of ever engines for large commercial aircraft on our regional jets and business aviation and we have decades of engineering expertise to take us through life through life. Service and support solutions for customers in the defense were market-leading aero-engines for military transferring control labor's including combat helicopter applications.

But it's not just about the asian and the behavioral for engines.

"Tow us today? Well that the Chinese, of course, have grown very rapidly. Both industrially and militarily. And they are a rising threat. There's no question about it. They have militarized the South China Sea. They've landed on the moon. They picked up samples and flew them back for crying online. Their technology is is good as ours. That's right, and they're stealing our technology. They're subsidizing their industries. And you know, since they're eating our lunch Are economically and And we make it. They eat it. Yeah, that's right on beer, and they're growing militarily to be a real threat. And I think we have to pay a lot more attention. The Chinese then we have traditionally Do you think one day they will try to topple us as a nation. Well, I think there's a serious risk of that, they have said. That they wanted. Try to Ah Become the world's leading industrial and scientific power. And they are well, they can do that there without attacking us, right? Well, they are militarily now capable of doing extensive damage to us and we are to them and we are to them. So I think that we need to worry about Specifically certain aspects of our defense, such as anti missile defense. Space, particularly space warfare, which the Chinese air moving into Things like that. Cyber warfare is something that they're quite good at. We have got the To modernize rapidly in those areas or otherwise, we do face the possibility that we could actually lose a war, for example. In East Asia should the Chinese, for example, move move against Taiwan. Or even more extensively than that which they will at one point. It's bound to happen, which which they seem to be intent on doing yes. And I'm not sure we're going to be capable or willing to step in to stop it. Well, that xcar tingly is a is a problem, George. I mean Uh, And then today that Russia and China did some war exercises. I mean, it's zits shaping up to be not too good. Yeah, it looks very difficult and We have got to keep up our military strength. That's absolutely essential, particularly as I said in these new areas, such a cyber warfare space warfare Missile technology, hypersonic missiles, those type of things which are very expensive. And we just We just cannot afford to be second rate. In our military capacity. Whether you agree with the tragedy of covert 19 or not. The bottom line is governmental leaders have shut our country down over the Appearance of covert 19. That's right and look how devastating that is. Tow us with this. God knows what could happen if we get hit with some kind of missile attack. Or something else. Well, that's right. And and the reaction T co vid on the part of some of our governors. Has deprived Americans of some of their basic liberties. I mean freedom of association. Yeah, and businesses to and smoked businesses, particularly small businesses. Many of them are failing. Restaurants, for example of them. Small companies. They're going out of business because of this, so I think there's been an overreaction on the part of politicians. To this or at least they're not being sufficiently careful. And some of these shut down orders now in dealing with the demise of an empire. What happens to family values and things like that when a nation begins to decline? Well, that's an extremely good question. George and Family values, for instance of family values, such as the solidarity that families bring On and so on, are extremely important. And there are certain institutions and certain principles that are basic. Two. The liberty of a Free republic. Family is what? Um, the churches. The strong communities. And principles, uh, such as such as hard work. Loyalty discipline. Courage, patriotism and so on. If those things begin to deteriorate, then you no longer have.

How to move forward with China

"To fourteen point list of grievances via the australian media. Second wine joined beef. Bali timber lobster call among our exports that the chinese communist party has imposed tariffs on. And then that tweet. This is the tweet of the posting of a digitally altered of an australian soldier about to slit the throat of an afghan child. The chinese embassy issuing a bellicose statement the rage in roar of some ustralian politicians and media was misreading and reaction. It said to deflect public attention from the horrible atrocities by sickness soldiers and to blame china for the worsening of bilateral ties. So what's going on. He and asha camera respond. Jeff rabi is a former australian ambassador to the people's republic of china and he's author of china's grand strategy and australia's feature in the new global order. That's just been published and it's available in all good bookstores jeff. Welcome back to the show so some great to be back now. I your thoughts about beijing's response to australia in recent weeks so we have that list of the foreign complaints the wind terrace and of course that tweet while a say i up disappointing to see the slights that have been made After the two quite constructive comments at the triumph prime minister a last week quite clearly. The prime minister was Diplomatically signaling That there was a strong wish to start a process of getting back to some sort of more normal relationship between the two countries the product make though it sounds dramatic when you run those three things together the way you have done that certainly not the same thing. And i'm not sure that they're all necessarily coordinated. I mean the fourteen points clearly seems to be freelancing by the embassy on matters that well known and in the public record in any case at a very odd way of putting something out if you leak it to a channel nine television crew that seems to be pretty casual behavior by the embassy then the tariff spo there has been a processing trained for months on the wind tariffs and i do understand that that was the normal process and the strain companies were busily making written submissions as part of that process. And then the tweet The present time it sounds like it's been contrived by the chinese foreign ministry as individual action. it was a tweet that was particularly widely on social media by a now nationalist artist and twitter and the foreign ministry spokesperson on his private twitter account. Pinder to name and so it's philippine. Middle level action doesn't really look to millions of any of these really coordinated broad cross section of the australian people just looking at the y. People who've responded this week is there is outrage and surely win china. does things like. This doesn't make it harder for people like you because you've been an eminent company on this issue for several years now. Hugh watt a bobcar. Pass gas on this program. Of course the former prime minister paul keating. Doesn't it make it hot. A all of you to make the case that al leaders should try to rebuild trust with such a regime yet. I can understand the public outrage especially the media is going into overdrive steer and just as you have said running all these things together as a coordinated action from the state It does make it harder to get sensible constructive discussion going a story about how we deal with these things. I like to find myself in such august company as you outlined. And you might add gareth evans. Many others that to the group as well but it certainly history doesn't help and it's difficult context in which to conduct foreign policy. What we're seeing is what is like to live in the situation with china relationships In a very poor state now. Other people in camera that i see welcome this their peopling camera who have the view that bad relations with china are inevitable. This is the new normal. We should get used to it and lupus it while the questioning myself. And the august company you've being linking me with. Is this the best interest of australia. And it also basic question. Your what has australia down to bring on china's in this way why you think china is picking on again. Picking on is quite pejorative. They're not doing this to other states. Our other key point. And i would phrase that differently tom i would say how is it that astray amongst like minded friends and allies other liberal democracies in the world in the region why's at the trial has become an outlaw and i think that really needs to be part of the public discussion. Isn't the reason. The australia is so over exposed to chinese pressure in beijing. Nosy so the chinese leaders going to inflict pain on australia whenever they can't australia. And not the other like minded way boy more. In other countries we ought to forty percent of our exports to china. No other country has that kind of exposure. I prefer countries in the region. China is by far the largest trading power. I mean that exposure would be the same for korea south korea which is liberal democracy in the region. it would be near that level. For nearly all the countries in the east asian region china is the dominant economic patna of all of the countries in the region and that is just a fact at its reflects. The extent to which china has grown as the dominant economic power in east asia. Alexander downer. The former. Foreign minister says that now's the time to reduce our exposure to china. But what everyone is saying. There's nothing new novel in that. And obviously when people start to realize that we are going to have for a long time a difficult and challenging relationship with china's manage. That's a fairly obvious. Point to make interesting from In addition to being former minister former director of the board of while clay. And very active Proponent in boosting. Australia china trade relations phrase time as soon as minister and i work very closely with him in that and i think we achieved a lot. So why wouldn't you wanna diversify every sensible business. Every sensible company diversifies the port made over and over again on this aspect is that it's going to be very hard. Because of the absolute scale and growth and prosperity of china. You are a foreign policy realist. All gripe house ruthless and that includes chana hardball at every turn and the stronger. China gets the more likely to throw its wide around now to the extent. These realist analysis is correct. How on earth do we solve. this problem. absolutely correct agree with all those points. Another point that needs to be made. And you don't make it much tom. And your pride yourself as being a realist and that is the relationship is asymmetrical that is effect. We need china. More than china needs us. This is not a comfortable place for us to be but it's a place we are. It's a place where we're stack and will remain and so We need to work out how to manage that relationship and we haven't done a particularly good job of a judging by the state rewritten today. So although you express yourself in a different way you essentially gray with the foreign policy realists professor join me shauna regular guest on this program and he argues that his china's power increases its definition of its national interests will grow and then beijing will seek a survey influence in areas on which its future security and prosperity dependent in response. The us will go to great lengths to stop china's rises. It essentially. your argument is well up a poet. I'm a great Admire of joint mish as well. I differ with him on a couple of points but his analysis and arguments have been hugely influential in helping me shape my thinking about these But i put on sphere of influence is. I think that's already happened. I think china is the dominant paranagua this at length in my book in eurasia from the east china sea to also china is the dominant parent. That's happened largely because sanctions against russia poor economic performance by russia Pushback from from europe against russia has meant that brushes had to cede to china's ascendancy in eurasia and so very part of the world. And i think we now live in a world of michigan talks about a world of two great powers with boundary orders and in the question then becomes is some equilibrium at stable between the two. And i believe there is.

"So i don't know about you. How has your week. listen I have to tell you. This was one heck of a week. And i think like you know you and a good majority of the country. I was able to breathe a sigh of relief on saturday. Y'all i think like the entire week it was just kind of like come on. All the state call is okay. Call the stay. Stay calm and then it's like i remember. I was actually taking out trash yesterday. And then like. I heard my trump supporting neighbor. Like damn what upstairs. Check my phone. And i saw the results of mike holy crap like he. Actually he did this. And i think it's just like like i said it's like a twenty ton weight was just lifted off my chest and it was like i can finally breathe again and like you know new york chicago. My friend montana's in san diego. Their cities just exploded with celebrations and enjoy and it was just so refreshing and encouraging with everything. That's happened in twenty twenty it's been an absolute crappy year. We've lost a lot of stuff. We've lost a lot of opportunities to do stuff with each other as friends or family. People have been have lost because of death related to these sickness. People have lost their jobs. They've been on the brink of homelessness and just a house. Like this little blurb of something that everyone collectively feel joy on it was just so refreshing. And i will admit like i've been like teary just like for the past like forty eight hours like just like oh god and then sorry like i'm at a loss for words but this is just so monument is for so many reasons gas. No i completely agree. And i'm with you and feeling like that weight was lifted in. I think looking back on election night for years ago the heaviness the just kind of sunk in it was like that was just kind of removed. And you know wile. I acknowledged that there is still a lot of work to be done. Iran nice to be a place to all collectively say okay. Let's let's get that work done in. Let's get it done together. And that's the thing is like. I agree with you wholeheartedly. I don't want people to think that just because biden and harris have won this that the work is not over because i think that part of what sort of fostered the rise of somebody like trump was because of a lot of complacency with how things were going over the past two so many years and granted i will not i will say that with trump. That's just a whole nother ballgame in terms of the racism. The sexism just like just everything would be the swing towards being an autocrat. All of that is no. It's definitely entirely trump's own thing but it's not it's not like he's not some anomaly. This is like a symptom of a larger issue at hand. And i don't want people to think that just because we've won the white house and presumably they're going to be in the white house beginning january that the work is done and then that said because I feel like this like this past year has really kind of opened up a lot of people's eyes with how truly messed up a lot of our systems of government and our checks and balances have really been feeling key demographics of our country for years. And i you know there are some people who are gonna probably think that they don't have to care as much as they can. Just go back to being blissfully unaware but not mean. I'm still i'm still. I'm still trying to become a better person. I think that you know it behooves nobody if we don't you know at least try to put in some work towards a truly racially justifiable and equitable society in our country and andrew take hit on a point. Is i think that you know. The certain parties that are in the business of oppression and stripping away rights you know. They rely on that complacency from minorities marginalized groups and we are given a of equality. They rely on us to sit back and celebrate and say okay. The work is done. We no longer be fired for being gay or we have same sex marriage or whatever it might be. They rely on that complacency from us so that way they can swoop band and kind of continue to do their work. And that is something that i'm happy to hear. You say you acknowledge that. I hope a lot of people acknowledge is that this is just the beginning of the work right and it will be easier to get done under an administration. Like harris is or biden's. Because i surely hope my hope is that they are willing to listen to you. Just give us look service that they're actually going to listen to what what the issues have been for this entire summer and try to resolve that and not get sucked into the Well we got to appeal to only one base which is white conservative moderates or whatever and we'll get more into that leader but just let let's just focus as well to how historic this is because we have not only do we not not only have a woman going into the white house. We have a woman of color. Both black at east asia. And just it's it's just i'm i'm sorry west asian win. When harris speaking at her speech i saw a bunch of girls especially little black girls in that were in the audience. Last night i saw like just inspiration awe and just pure joy at her speaking. And i think that there's there's a whole generation of women and girls that are saying there's someone that looks like me that's actually in the white house and i can do this too and i can be vice president or president some day. I think that just her being appointed and just her words in her speech. Just you know talking about her mother talking about woman. In general it's it was such a huge huge women's occasion for having women in general and sabotage took this long but this is something huge to celebrate

"Rocky's Radio Network. Species. You know, it's interesting as time goes on, with each revelation, each discovery of a new species in the study of human evolution that family tree gets bushier and bushier and Bush here way find that in the past It wasn't a matter of just one species occupying centre stage and then then relinquishing that stage to another species that comes along or that arises. From it, but rather there were. There was a whole litany of characters interacting on the stage or occupying different parts of it, partitioning the landscape, each with a different image. And the flip side of that coin is that We are also discovering that many of these branches on this now very bushy tree have persisted until much more recently, then we've ever appreciated in the past, so Example, there was a new discovery of a Neanderthal site in in northern Siberia that dated two, possibly as young as 10,000 years ago. I think the discovery that really drove this home. The very dramatic discovery was Homo floresiensis, The little Hobbit from Indonesia Greet stand The skeleton. One of the most complete skeleton representing that species, was dated to somewhere between 13 and 18,000 years ago, which Just really set people back on their heels because It bears a striking resemblance to a very late Australopithecus scene. Early Homo, which Were thought to have been extinct. You know, 2.5 million years ago, and yet here one shows up just Ah, Couple of 10,000 years ago in right right under our nose literally. In South East Asia. So, um, it it illustrates the point. It drives the point home that The rule rather than the exception through the history of, uh through prehistory. I should say there have been multiple species sharing sharing the landscape. Multiple species of Hom annoyed. And that in fact, today, while we tend to Teo think you know, the textbooks say that we're the last hominid standing where the last player on the on the stage It may be that we still do. In fact, just as in the past share that stage with several other species such as Sasquatch, Yeti year and all modesty. I mean the names the local names multiply. But it's uh it's fascinating. It's intriguing setting. It caught the attention of the editor of New Science magazine. Uh, and they they recognize this is really a pertinent and pressing question of this. 20 per century. Sure, as you think, Jeffrey when the time comes, and this creature is found or bones are found that people will say This is not an animal. This is more human than anything. Well, that's very possible. You know, I've I've held to the working hypothesis The null hypothesis if you will. For some time. Ah, the You know the popular gigantic pit ficus theory. The notion that this is a great ape and I and I still think that Whatever this is, whether it's a great ape, or whether it is a early human ancestor like, say, a robust australopithecines something that has I've taken a different strategy to making a living in the environment, then has the genus Homo. Once Homo appeared 2.5 million years ago. You know there was this strong from there on there was a strong trajectory of reduction in the size of the jaws and the teeth. Together with enlargement of the brain and the use of tools, the use of the the advent of a material culture and that I mean, that was Martin Parcel of what? It was to be a member of the genus Homo. Everything about Sask watch, uh about you know, the ring pen deck and and many of these other Uh, species suggests that they are bereft of any of those. A coup treatments that they didn't have tool didn't have material culture and most of their behaviours, as described by witnesses could readily be accommodated. Within the behavioral repertoire of no name. Now there's an exception to that. I mean, that's a Zeiss suggested there were, there are potentially multiple species. Multiple relics out there, and one of those is quite intriguing, which is the almost E over in in Russia in Asia, which descriptions do in fact. Ah stow it with some of those more humanlike characteristics. That is. There are stone tools that are attributed To, uh, these creatures. There was a British archaeologist Maira Shockley, who was doing research in the Altai Mountains. And you know she was collecting these Stone spear points and when she showed them to the To the locals. They failure. The almost make those will the spear points. If there was no other context would be attributed to Neanderthal. So it's very possible that that Some of these Creatures may represent a relic population of Neanderthals or a closely allied species, which, again with the multiplication of species. We have other potential candidates like the Dominus E. Um Ah. Excuse me, The Dennis Evans, The dominus. He worried a bit earlier than that. But the Dennis events that have Yielded their DNA to researchers quite recently. Jeff, tell me a little bit about the work of John Bidder nickel in what he does well, Dr Bender Nagel is a wildlife biologist. He now resides on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. And he has Interesting they followed. A similar parallel path is some of my career development when it comes to, uh, the Sasquatch question, but from a different perspective, mined from Anatomy and anthropology is from the perspective of ah of a wildlife biologist. He's written to extremely influential on DH must read books. One, which really couches. The question of Sasquatch as a North American aid from the Perspective of a wildlife biologist. He navigates the primate literature very deftly, and his second book is quite interesting it it delves more into the philosophy of science. And the process of discovery.

Everything from Michael Jackson to Mozart that he feeds into the computer and slices and dices and turns into something new. This piece is a little different from Carl Stone. It's called Fujii can and this is the final section of something that Karl has been rolling out over the course of the last couple of years. Where he traveled through East Asia and South East Asia, recording various singers performing traditional folk songs and then accompanies them with his own kind of wavering Elektronik soundscape. The resulting work has AH Kind of sense of suspended time. Very Japanese idea, But it also has a timeless quality because of the combination of the very modern sounds of the electronics and that most basic and organic of instruments, the voice.

Ben How is the increasingly assertive use and indeed Australian position on China. . How is that being interpreted in South East Asia. . We have this is a very broad region of ten countries of different size from giants like Indonesia to minnows, , like Brunei to have been diverse reactions, , but broadly speaking I think there's a lot of frustration with the trump administration the way it's being on the one hand increasingly unilateral and unpredictable. . But on the other hand, , there's this fear of US abandonment if you like in a long-term leaving the region to. . Gemini so I think we have to understand. . It's a complex picture, , right? ? So the US has to treaty allies in southeast, , Asia Thailand, , and the Philippines and they've been amongst the countries that are most China friendly and most frustrated with the US government in recent years be while we see a former. . FO- like Vietnam there's being one of the most receptive of the US approach to. . Try and run the loss years. . So it's quite complicated I. . Think the real risk here is that the US government and to a lesser extent that I'm camera believes that it's more assertive stance on China is appreciated in the region and I think that's really not necessarily the case because at the end of the day like Australia. . But most South East Asian countries China is that biggest. . Partner, , as well as being geographic neighbor is that you're reading to Huang given the Vietnam of course has been just mentioned is a Cold War Foe of united, states , but in in the face of verizon charts getting closer to Washington. . Southeast Asian nations have gone through a different phases of. . Living next to China, , they've known China. . Through historical engagements of this is not a new thing for them. . The anxiety about China's and China's might <hes> end as you mentioned, , they've gone through A. . Competition to window call when they have still vivid memories of that. . So <hes> in overall I think they they do have anxiety. . There is a pronounced anxiety about the intensifying great-power competition that might. . Lead to similar way of asking them to choose sides like was in the Cold War but I think all of them want to keep both China and us in the region a engaged. . Also not too. . Aggressive or not to assertive, , and they also want to involve other. . Powers not only the be the two big ones but also Japan Australia's are career and the European countries. . A little bit of competition is good for them but took much competition can be nervous. . Let's bring it to Indonesia Ben. . There's your name subject at the end of last year Indonesia and China had a face off over the ownership of the Natuna islands which are in the southernmost part of the area of the South China Sea claimed by China. . Where does Jakarta stand on China? ? Now it's an, , it's an interesting question <hes> building a wall who was just talking about because we look at Indonesia's president. . Jerko with widow known as Jacoby, , I've just written the first English biography of him the plug in that. . He he is an economy I president. . He is someone who is above all interested in creating more jobs, , getting more investment into Indonesia, , and especially during a time of covid nineteen when the economy's really collapsed and Jacoby is a transactional leaders that he wants those who are bringing the most money with fewer conditions and right now that is China Chinese state-owned companies. . Chinese. . Private companies like qualify as well. . On, , the other hand of course, Jacoby , has to be seen to be defending Indonesia's sovereignty and we have had these clashes over fishing rights. . I have access to certain waters that you mentioned. . So I think when those of come to head, , Jacoby has made a symbolic stance. . He's gone out to the tune of see visited the islands gone onto ability ship a symbolic declaration. . He's going to defend Indonesia's sovereignty but by in laws you trying to stay away from these. . Geopolitical issues to play down the tensions with China said of the economic relationship can keep developing. So . it's a really difficult balance and I think there's also a shift that's potentially happening in Indonesia. . So the old guard if you like in the Foreign Ministry and the government in the military, , they really view above all other things strategic autonomy on non-alignment as being the key for Indonesia. So . don't get into any alliances don't get too close to any one power but. There . isn't new of God if you like coming through increasing, , you think Indonesia needs to be a bit more active about engaging with potentially the US Australia, , the Europeans Japanese to try and balance out the region. . But for now are really think with Jacoby in the hot seat it's the economy I put the geopolitics aside at the end of the day that's a positive for China, , but it's not an open and shut case because the had been long been tensions. Between . Indonesia and China. . So Jacoby like a lot of other leaders in the region, , we'll have to find this delicate balance, , but it's getting harder and harder and Huong Vietnam your nation. . Let's talk about that. . It's been pushing back against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea, , which threatens Vietnam oil drilling and fisheries, , and of course, , it's had an ongoing dispute about water flows in me congresses where China has built dams stream at tell us more about Vietnam position on China. . Is Getting nece position on on current China is also a frustrated I. . Think at Phnom has gone grew proably among all in countries have had the longest history of interaction with China and most cases where it was trying to defend its own national sovereignty and resist China's expansionist tendencies. . So it's been ingrained in Vietnamese National Psyche I would say current us of China Sea conflict to end disputes are only. . One of the examples of that, , but it is similarly with others opposition countries, , which is it's harder and harder to seek more peaceful avenues of dispute because it is a strategy in the South China Sea is among others was to include the direct dialogue with China but that is not really much come to help <hes> these days with Chinese expansion expansionist tendencies. . Now, you , mentioned also on which is very important. . Aspect in the relationship. . Phnom is at any of the lower mccown and China, , is a deal a top of the upper and it's projects of a building dams and not only in China, , but a call goes invest in dance in now Cambodia Yaman and Thailand that blocks blocks the water flow blocks were flow of the river, , which is very important for agricultural conditions in. . Asia and it is called the bowl of rice for the region and the countries. . Of course, , they export rise agricultural produce and also Crohn's fish and stuff like that. So . we've China's interference into ecological nature of the river that can potentially add cost a lot of income for the countries, , but also with a backup climate change that can pose a certain at time. . Security threat to the food safety and food security of the region. . So it is quite a leverage that China can have on the lower <unk> countries including at Phnom follow question to Ben Bland. . Given what you said earlier about the relatively nuanced in measured response of south. . East. . Asia towards the United. States . if you like trying to ride two horses simultaneously. . What happens if China's rise continues on, , abide it and seeks to dominate the region and America as the acting regional hegemony on goes to great lengths to stop China from dominating is where do you think? ? Will be of Southeast Asia then it's it's really hard to say how things go election coming up in the US very soon, , I think that could have a big impact on how how things go in the. . Trump and pretty anti-china. . There's really a difference in degree rather than just shooting Washington goes to great lengths to stop China what they. . In, , that scenario. . All I think I think we're probably not GONNA get to a situation where South East Asian countries have to choose one side of such. . But what they will have to do is face an increasing number of difficult small choices about what technology they use in their mobile networks about what military exercises that willing to do about what investment projects say yes or no To so life will get tougher and tougher for the region, , but I don't think at the end of the day. . Any of the countries will be willing to join an alliance either with the US or with China. . So they're going to keep trying to find the space in the gaps in between to try and exploit competition for the best interest if you're looking at. . The longer term picture I think there's ways the big affair of the US just turning back inwards and the ultimately that the trump presidency. . The rise of trump is probably a symptom of the issues in the US which are gonNA lead to a turning inwards and maturing of the US as a power being less influential pretension in Asia and the rest of the world. . So, , it may not be a question of China in the US coming to a head but the US rhetoric increasing the US pretend you withdrawing from the region

"The question is how can we re most remotely you? First of all we did have very system that rate authored inflammation serving and also vic between the Potently and regularly so it because of the older cookbook Become a shooting portion on February thirteen and fourteen and then to catch up the locker so this is something that I won't say information therapies one thing but also the team Jaren T. He's also very compulsive and when we look at the plans we've made we know that many business comes nudity. Plans tend to focus on short term disruptions. They may focus on things like emergency on sites cybersecurity hacks Perhaps something in the line of The storm or types are civil unrest. But I know that's very much like California like a New Orleans like Kansas USA that suffer from tornadoes. There were several regions in your part of the world. There in East Asia which experienced natural is awesome things like earthquakes hurricanes to nominees and there have also been previous epidemics of disease which very significant regionally but of course on a much smaller scale compared to the massive scale of what we're faced with now would be covered nineteen looking back on some of the lessons that you'll local business communities have learned from those previous experiences How do you think they apply in this time of the corona virus crisis so I think John let me take this back to you in Shanghai? What have you seen? Local business communities learned from previous experience of disasters and regional disruption. Yeah to be honest. I think I'd like to take two. Pots waited for the local community. And the others for my company. I think companies are very special for the local community. It's the interesting things is we learn much from two thousand three. You know the time as you'll know Shanghai and other other cities not severe but at this time in local communities especially the risk local communities. You find very interesting that almost all the company originally originally were computers. You know for the Insurance Company but in that time well corporate are so good. That's weekend sheer the industry inflammation by each other in the we even share the network of by e tries. It seems that the first priority is to keep staff security and second is keep the constant good customs service then allowed to win the considerable profits so in the local community in really much on the two solid and sweet sauce business and you know most of the system that we have already have most of the night I I know the most thing financier institutions have a backup system. The they can stock into to the Remote work from home. Easy the local community from my company. It's very interesting. Thing is that my company is the base thing Japan. You're a Japanese comedies. So many things that you know you mentioned the Santa Earthquake Ericsson and Nami so we have already has such kind of the system. Each year we were prepared for. The business continued gene contingency place and the we also will do the excise for the last year. I just mentioned We were the we are not prepared. We just address. The excise was that we have really disappeared for the home. Office the cynical office and we're really has no such May Sever we need to start out the cops server so we really do such kind of excise why we have so many people? We have the Laptop we have the VPN prepared things. We have already get such kind of being. From the kind of knowledge the really we have got such great propel and I s I know in the financing toossion most of the company in China in I think in not not Asia including China Hong Kong Taiwan and Japan Korea. Also have such kind of be playing so I think most of the time not only you can try not in Hong Kong. I think there's not asked to this county searching the performance of the Conde. The industry is quite good. Not only insurance company but also. The banks also disagreed comedy. I think let's go back to Hong Kong William Chen We're talking about the ways that local business communities can benefit from previous exposure to disasters. You may have seen in in your experience Certain lessons learned. How have you been able to apply those today? Being you home call. We experienced a sauce in two thousand three and also be also have some experience to how to and I mean to protect the Stop Stave and how to do Some spots for the nineteen DIS This time Mucus. Freidy probably different Because too too widespread and also the impact so I think As you mentioned that Adobe Yo have two different kinds of this country but we really did to the team and people will just after the prank school execution and now we're talking about the dispute of execution is show impact them different to be. We all speak the loose change all the news everyday change so I would say I I still want to focus their their their their crucial in footprint is more important and then it is We did this regularly. Lie which you think. Pissed lawyer human body released different of the information or to indicators that relate to assess the record pubs and into how we adjust so I say the information transparency and to have quick. That'S THE MEAL. Financial impact is raising. You talked about volatility. The speed of change is something we've never really seen before and let's talk a little bit about that volatility especially paps when it comes to small businesses because business communities that are made up in a very as you say many different parts just like for every corporation every massive enterprise every Chebel In career you will have hundreds of thousands of small micro-businesses Street traders very small enterprises. And of course the way that they manage this kind of situation is entirely different so Perhaps if I could ask you William in your experience of how many different layers of business. How many different sized businesses make up a business community? Do you see that they're Ways that the government will the state in in Hong Kong for example is supporting businesses. That taps on different to the way that they may be supporting businesses here in the UK or perhaps in the USA. What are some of the differences in the way that Businesses being assisted by local government. To take let me in to our region. I mean Hong Kong also also because we've got to saturate possibly try and You honking also do some pets. Subsidy in terms of the particular. Those being hit a subtly light or from retail and hospitality. I think the government some subsidy on it but in terms of the destroyed intones off to speed things that we can. I mean the government can do A bit more but in in other ways that you try to the definitely also supports quite not tons of all the subsidy locally so I thank God for different government also to a very good in terms of their support but you just mentioned how do we Being a community with different pieces that can have hopes that the taste a it is a thing yesterday for example like our chase Read some surprise from the probably the probably the Congress Hsun Production. We also can't to to the profession so I think that com- off the train. It is very critical because in this moment. And now the the Oprah is this going out to the US and UK in separate. We are very concerned about the price with China now. We consider surprise fun overseas whether they can do the ship surprise to us. So now it's really a couple of really into interlinked. So yeah not something that we need to to learn every day and to we thought I think is the benefits of caring perspectives from different parts of the world the UK last week USA last week and then today the third of all live webcasts from the EPA and Seema looking at the regional perspective. How we manage the local impact to the scope of disruption I'm hearing it from the East Asian regional perspective like almost all of us listening today working in a very different situation Working from home any of us come many of us have the technology but perhaps because of all the other people in the house. It's a little less easy than the technology would make us believe. We have to do things like cope with children in the house. Pets needing to be taken for a walk board wives or husbands sitting playing the xbox fine to stop the children from using the Internet because we need it for video conferencing all of those things that somehow. You don't really plan for new business contingency plan but however we cope. We may have questions about how we can do that. And that's why I'd like to invite any of our audience to submit questions you can do that via the Q. And A. in this Webpage that you are listening to this webcast on and you can submit the questions. Tell us where you are and we'll do our best to answer your question. We just wants to welcome those people who join us. We know that's Angus is with us. Nancy Ada Ken Li- whole Linda Catherine and many other people who are joining us and If you have questions please do some them. I'm joined by Dr William Chen from Hong Kong. Who is the? Cfo OF QUASAR Engineering Ltd and the CFO of Mitsui. Sumitomo Insurance China John Dang from Shanghai generally question for you because you're in the insurance business. How does a business assess its ability to cope? How does it know when it needs to get some help To be on this disease the very interesting situation. It's a good question there's at For example as you know we dinning everyday that insurance companies dealing with risk management every day we provide the risk of solution so From my point of view I'm in charge of the back office and I also walkways. And the rioting and does these kinds The claim team our target is that provide very good quality. Sivvy's but as you know in current situation the crisis the current verse as you know. It's really really really really hot to operate and to assess so as you know for us for insurance things a financial institution. We always not only help ourselves but our clients to boot off to their stress tests. You know this is very very interesting. And then bury their potent. We know that we can understand the situations. That's where we are and Inga. Shuten what we need to do and in the London. What did we need to do? And in the meantime as you'll know interesting is that as a content and also ensure we need to know the cost how to cope with it..

Particularly when it comes to those East Asia at your political rivalry with China. That's a great answer. When we know there, there's another country. Russia was also being disgusting things. I'd like Chinese are quite concerned about that. Moving forward about let them questions. Trentham over here. Steve winters independent insolvent. I think there's a group that is called the Shanghai institute for Korea studies. Have you seen any of their publications? There there. There is Antonio. He cares. Well, in any case in their obligations. They're pushing the idea, I the thing, that's coming from Xi Jinping Asian community values, I presumably western community or some kind of confusion, community values, but also and concrete terms they proposed proposed that the solution to the economic problems of North Korea's for North Korea joined the pelton road initiative. And then you have Putin who has various concepts of connectivity, and rail lines going, you know. Through North Korea down to South Korea and Putin has merging, his Eurasian economic project with the belt and road. So this. The asking your opinion. This would seem to be exactly what is on the minds of people in Washington DC, and what they want to stop at all costs. And how would you suggest stopping? Well, maybe coming to the cream peninsula. What is green governance at shoot was about the road and it was South Korean reaction to the Chinese proposal to community outcome and Bethany. I think each country pursues its own national interest, as believable realist politics. When your interest convergence each other, you could call it a community for shared interest. For the time being. But when it comes to think North Korea's integration to pattern, PRI projects. It has incentive. Both China and North Korea. Of course, it's good for economic development but it's good for China. Because North Korea China border tone, bed, China's nurses, and reason is one of the water, as you know, the our. Kneeing. Halons antillean. It's the least developed to the province because of North Korea border and. Secretly threats. So when North Korea joins the economic blueprints, and the projects and cooperates and secretly concerns diminishes and China's northeastern province that borders, North Korea. They can also. You can. Achieve. If you go to pull the city's like ten or Tia, particularly on these days that they are. The rewrote rose in preaches, and the realize the prices are going up so they are also expecting to see. Peace moment. Really because the precision of North Korea benefits China's northeastern regions. So I think it's obscene that not necessarily as that. United States too. Screwed that plan. I think what's the could or think about how I can jump in and the benefit as well. Because as you know. The footwear maker night several years ago. Explore the possibility of building Nike factories in North Korea because it has cheap labor very skilled. Labor's very trip. So, and number of shoes that those factories could produce compared to number of shoes produced in China or Vietnam. I think those workers could through this quite a quality products. So it's a way of I think there are potential for US companies jump into this north East Asian, particularly China's nurses, putting North Korean the regions are where the chip labors, and skillful labors are there. I think there is a room full win win there at this point, that would be in violation of the UN, sanction shifts. At this point. Yes. Okay. And the South Korean attitude towards that about on the road. So. I think it's Oscar has not officially joined there yet. But then I think sounds create because it has its own southern-bound policy found policy, and that they went none this redoing, the China's road. But sauce, create wants to use and connect to the plans together, not necessarily completely to in the south China's initiative. Okay. So coming in common projects, an interesting coming benefits, benefits, the great way, Jenny. Coverage from the Stimson center with song, John Lee of the sage on institute from Seoul's South Korea. Anytown furnace and Senate and sending you talked a little bit about your students attitudes in the survey that you did comparing the attitudes towards the US versus China, but one of the advantages that China perceives that they got from the Hanoi summit for instance was the weakening of the US alliance. What do you see as South Korean attitudes towards the US in general of all in? Have you seen this weakening of the alliance from the South Korean side? And what are those main complaints that they have is about may is it about today? They see the US standing the way of the peace process or what is really causing of the weakening of the us, create alliance. Metres things code facts and things the perceptions at the beginning, south soccer USA lines. It's rather a matter of perception, rather than not fence, and particularly it's it is used in South Dakota polarized politics as politics because, as you know, the crown cells couldn't politics is more of progressive liberal government and. Aquisition is conservative, camps and considered camp puts high emphasis on your South Korea alliance. So I think in, in very, very vicious south politics to the conservative camp wants to use. Every opportunity to undermine. Portray the current progress government and its approach engagement the nose Korea as an actor undermining South Korea alliance. But then I think at whether that is true or not at think I should spent some time in Washington DC. So to find out. Yeah. Maybe I should spend some time. Please. Yes. I'm sure about declare my willingness to stay in Washington. This is let me know whether there is any positions fellowships that you are willing to come your stay, a couple of years, I'll come back and so your kitchen with Autry fission. So. Okay. Declares the intention to have you. About that later. Okay. Maybe last question from over here. Hello. I'm Dennis helping fellow at the end Stroup Korean American studies. Former State Department former how staff I was struck. Thank you. Dr Lee for your presentation. One thing that struck me was your explanation of the perception, that China's absence of in the process was the reason for the failure Hanoi because that I have not largely heard in Washington in Washington, it's been explained in terms of American domestic politics, two things. One President Trump was jetlagged, and he didn't sleep all night the night before the Hanoi summit. He was watch up and his hotel, watching his former attorney Michael Cohen, testified a congress. He got no sleep. So when he didn't get the deal he wanted he was just Shinzo Chang, and just got into his car and took off the second interpretation. Is that because he had a new national security team came in just before, at the Singapore summit that was John Walton and secretary of state palm pale are considered more hardline than Tillerson and McMaster? So they had time, building up to Hanoi to sort of poison the well so, and I noticed chung-yong in their public statements afterwards have blamed more. Baltin and to lesser extent from pale. And that said anything about Trump's out why is there a difference in perception in Saul and Washington? As to the non success of the Hanoi summit. I said that is not so perception, but China's perception. And let me add that. There is a meta of psychology. China has I think this, she's three coli Redon Debry deci college that. When it comes to Korean peninsula show when it comes to North Korean issue. China has this sense that we own the narrative those matter, it's ours. You know, redo this, you cannot sell this with me, so when Trump bypassed China reached out to Kim Jones, said I let the twice China has its own reason for being slightly unhappy. And when the Hanoi summit. Derailed. China was, I think a little bit shouldn't say happy, but a little bit smoke that, see we China's presence without China's help Trump. You cannot solve North Korean issue to ease you come lex, you'd as history, unicycle defectors. It has security concerns and China's help you cannot serve. I think this is what I was trying to say the Tiny's perception. Do you think the Chinese actually possessed ability to facilitate the success of the dialogue with the United States? I think you should add that to confront the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson. China analyst. I think. I think has influence on those Korea is. Is both medical and real at the same time real in the sense that had real physical influence on North Korea. Just imagine that it cuts this economic lifeline than those craze, dad tomorrow. Right. But then the thing is that in a way medical because you have this elaborate, but this leverage is something that it's there. But you can use it in real life, because the very moment that use it, then you're inferences gone because. China's fear has been that when we pressures, North Korea to heart. And when North Korea fears corner, just like a cornered mouse, North Korea might turn around and beat by the China, hands, for example through missile testing. Even there are some concerns about North Korea's missiles now heading towards Japan, or the United States, maybe to the projections, return around tool the Chinese side, and the China someone's trying to state described as a mad doc, and you cannot predict where the mad dog runs toward, so they have this influence, but then they don't want to upset North Korea. In so desperate decree that nuclear return Ron become a menace to China's our national interest. I, I think something gentlemen, raising his hands of should we entertained. Think we are running out of time, but feel free to stay on. And post question to tomatoey against him are lily for inside fall and comprehensive discussion of the AmEx after off at the Hanoi dominant. We certainly hope to host as visiting fellow at some point, and discuss more thinking very much for coming tonight. Thank you. John Hunley is with the sage on institute, Seoul.

"You're listening to coast to coast AM on K G O eight ten. Welcome back to Costa, co-ceo murals, TIMMY church. I guess Bruce Fenton, and Bruce we were just discussing these human origins, and we're going to push it back to eight hundred thousand years talk about hybrid humans. That's one thing, but to pull it away from Africa and over to Australia is a whole nother conversation. What evidence is there that our human origins came out of Australia eight hundred thousand years ago? Thank you. Yeah. That's a that's a good one very controversial one as well. Like that. Yeah. The main -pedia and scientists didn't like that. I'm doing that. Most of that multi for all, you know, that I'm not even putting happy end in Africa. Let alone any outside involvement. You know, really what? Because there's a few things it comes down to being a lack of recognition to the fact that one of the early hominid on home. It ends means basically that human family, including homo erectus, one of these these homo erectus kind of sisters who they popped out some of the genes to us, right? They say they've come out of they know that they came out of that we can possibly Africa possibly the Mediterranean region. Unclarity on that. But around about too many years ago these guys right? The spread them through the Caucasus. There's evidence of them there at one point eight million years they spread down all the way down into south East Asia. I think the oldest pulsating easier around about one point six one point seven million years old. Long before. And so these guys have sailed out even onto the islands in Indonesia. Yeah. But the problem is the the mainstream tell us that. Yes. We probably come from these come from these homo erectus. Right. You know Africa. Hi elimidate. You've got to sue come all the way down to south East Asia that really widespread. So what is the argument van that these are the that we've come from these African not from the others. And there doesn't really stuck up the reason for that. We now find that what's transitional fossils, where we see the, you know, the beaches of home of south Yemen's like goes, you know, all those seen in fossils down in East Asia and China between about eight hundred thousand to two hundred thousand failure good record of them there. You know, you got a gap. Yeah. Quite a big gap to see them around about five hundred thousand years ago, you these transitional fossils. So where where they fall that you know, and down East Asia, you don't have that gap. So I'm saying we'll look the fossil evidence is much stronger down. In east and southeast Asia. Australia that a problem with fossils, and the reason for that is because the coastlines of being flooded by rising and falling events over the last few hundred thousand years, but at times, the Australian landmasses being much bigger. You know, this was a with missing Donnie, south East, Asia and Australia up company. Guinea was pot all you'll straight in masses. People idea how much land lost. So these coastal sites. Yeah. I think flooded what we do know today is that ends made their way throughout the islands of Indonesia all the way across to. Items very coastal Stadio up to about a million years ago. And so that made it inevitable that they would go across Australia. So food logical deduction inside that they know the once you get that far east you've crossed what's the Wallace line, which is the geological boundary between Asia and Australia. Once you cross inevitable that you reach Australia. So we should have had homo erectus on other home and ends entering that area about nine hundred thousand years ago. Okay. So that puts us down there. And so the funny thing is that we also now have genetic evidence that shows the people have to any northern AustralAsia. They have an overloaded Denisova DNA not from just one. But from at least two distinct populations plus full DNA, plus signs of a ghost population of homeless happy. Anatomically modern humans and the line that leads to the rest of your Asians for a group that if you think they conventional walls that they reached that late, you know, that they just broke away from a group of Asians after the Africa, then and ended up being Australia. What are they doing with all these genetic lineages right to have come from all these other human groups, many of which are not even in people in Asia. So it doesn't stack up the only place. It's to be happening Email straight here at self that different human groups there that mixing down that and that there is later on their events where people come out of strata move through Asia at end to Africa. And there's a lot of evidence stacking up that shows that some of it in my book, some of it's happened that continuing to happen Zachariah situation as as we all know wrote about the knock he and the Samaritan tab. Blitz and the trans the translating of those text which state that the Anna Nakae created humans for a slave race at around four hundred thousand years ago. And that's where we came from is this this same story as Zachariah in that aliens intervene, you know, something off planet, intervene and created us. But the time wasn't four hundred thousand years ago, according to Samaritan tax, but it was in Tanzania, but in Australia at eight hundred thousand years ago, is it the same story, or is it a different story. I think that what we see as echoes the Detroit story echoes creation narrative, which have made their way to mess Mottain. Yeah. But to other places that we similar stories in the mythology of other ancient people as well. You know, you need ancient Egyptians have stories to do with the the needs these manifest, and and have a role in creating humans, and you know, in other tribal cultures. They have these stories involving these beings. So I think that yeah. There's that material, you know, and that within the medspa Cheney reckless. There's definitely that creation story that God's, you know, create us as a kind of were cause for them. You know that does connect-. Yeah. It does connect back to this suspect that what we have in medspa. Tame you is to streams of information firstly when you consider what I what I'm saying about everyone coming out of strata so about. Ori-? He's being taken by the ancestors of modern humans out of with them into the Middle East and into these areas, this story that they've held onto you know, again, how long that is being interaction with the beings seems those early times there's also being what do you call Chamonix events where people travel into that the world, and they seem to come back with this story to come back with information. So I don't think it's necessarily that. You know, the story has been passed on directly under five years. That's a long time right to hold onto story. Stret- what we have is later interaction with some of these beings. We're saying, hey, look, this is what we did. You know? This is crazy story that we need to share every now, and again that kind of refreshing the narrative, so that it's being, you know, further contact, and that's all we have a similar story and medspa tame. Yeah. As to other places, the debris that we were. Talking about at the beginning of our conversation tonight ties into everything that we're talking about right now where the debris come from. How did it get here? And where did that particular piece that I have worded that come from? Yeah. The debrief field is quite big. Actually, they tell you in the creation story. Yeah. The story with there was crossed that arrived here. You know, very large crossed. You know information that, you know, working from claim that is fifty thousand being sorted different kinds of beings is not just one law, and he's on the typical was the people here about the grays. You know, all the Chilean that met that, you know, the ones that most people have had that a mixture of different being described. This is coming from beta along he's come from trends to be a transmission from the extraterrestrials through an object and off just like they left on this planet, right, which is being uncovered by the aboriginal people. So again takes us back to strata. This object has the ability to use the kind of voice to SCO technology. So come across as being telepathy. By the object can communicate right? And it's given all of this information and what I've done is being validates. They didn't didn't go into my head clarify that someone else that happened to I have investigated what it told them. Now in that explains. These cross derives that there is made mostly of silica. It's know the other components base logically. And the reason for that is it's eight living a ship with a self-aware hard AI for out the hull of the ship. So the whole thing is a computer, which makes a lot of sense and start thinking about you hang on the next next next next generation right technologies. But you don't just how little UPC onboard tapping away on the hold on ship. It is a normal silica network. Makes sense leading edge scientists telling us that's the direction things are going to go to this. You know, hot AI living in boss silicon networks. Yeah. So it isn't fantasy stuff and the ship is blown up an ambush by a second group who already on earth and that hostile. There's an ambush. Blown-up melted in space. The silica basically is kind of crystal is described as being from quartz crystal melted. Caught eighty superheated comes to liquid and in space Nick woods forms to use these spec withdrawal flits because so cold things instantly freeze and not time to crystallize again, say grow the crystals..

But around about two years ago, these guys spread down through the Caucasus as evidence the man at one point eight million years, they spread down all the way down into south East Asia. The oldest pulsating easier around about one point six one point seven million years old. Long before. And so these guys have sailed out to some of the islands in Indonesia. Yeah.

Right. You know, you got a gap. Yeah. Quite a big gap. You see them there around about five hundred thousand years ago, you starts these transitional fossils. So where where they pull that you know, and down East Asia, you don't have that gap. So I'm saying we'll look the fossil evidence is much stronger down in.

"Trade. Let can't you learn on, you know, right? So yeah, I was I started that lunch by my new career. I was at that point really taken by furniture as kind of sculptural and beautiful. So immediately went into making some some chairs, and then it wasn't until several years later that I always knew I was going to get into dog accessories, but the furniture commissions, which just so so strong at that point. So it's kind of riding that for awhile. And then it was just a few years ago. And I started to finally put the threes collection on the forefront and watch last year. Well, we're glad you did. And you have a partner Nelly is your partner. Right. She has a really envious job only because I am a fabric. Not of sourcing your beautiful materials. Tell us a little bit about her part of the equation. Sure. Susa from California and has the real background in fashion shoes at a too large houses and ran production source material, some kind of storyboarding the collection. So she's traveled all around and had a real eye for trends and kind of putting together a cohesive collections. And so she was real key in helping launch it and she'd been to Bali three times in the past and had experience with production there when we went on our trip early last year. It was our intent to source craftsman there and look at having them to our production. And such incredible craftsman in Bali, everything wood carving stone carving seamstress, and then leather is very strong leatherwork is is very strong in Bali. So we found two factors that we like factory, but they're really just family run businesses and just call in love with them, so warm and friendly and very high credibility, and and just honesty and just a pleasure to work with. So we had some materials we had some designs. We had to make some prototypes. And really decided that we wanted to have our production there and support these families and kind of a nice nice place to have a second home base. She's there now. Yeah. So she's now she's got our dogs San she kinda overseas. Production and does some travel also ran south East Asia, sourcing fabrics and materials. Wonderful. Wow. Great job in Bali is gorgeous beautiful beautiful place. Right. Oh, it really is a designers paradise. Everyone's they're all these digital nomad that are doing consulting designing production out of there. You know on a hammock on the beach. Didn't like yeah.
