Hong Kong security law: What is it and is it worrying?
"24 hours after Beijing had passed its controversial security legislation. Authorities the Hong Kong had already charged 10 people with violating the sweeping new law. A new measure put severe restrictions on free expression. Beijing says the law is crucial to safeguarding Hong Kong's economic development and political stability and allows China to investigate and punish those accused of dissent. Penalties include life sentences. Los effect was immediate Twitter accounts were deleted. Pro democracy activists resigned their posts and several left the country. Li Chun Cheon is a former legislator and prominent opposition leader. He joins me now from Hong Kong, Mr Lee, Thanks for speaking with us. Hello. So, as I mentioned, several activists have disappeared from social media have ceased their pro democracy activities, and they certainly aren't talking to the press with Beijing threatening life sentences. For those that so called collude with foreign powers. I feel like I should begin this interview asking why you're taking the time to speak with us. I think it's very important to tell you well, what is happening to Hong Kong and the wording off the law is so vague that don't really know what it means. One employs collusion with a foreign power. And causing hatred to the central government. I'm not going to preach hate. I'm going to preach love only for the people of Hong Kong. How have you seen this law go into effect in terms of the way authorities are cracking down or in terms of the way that people just conduct themselves differently. They are trying to cleanse all free speech, putting fear among the people and and after you put fear, then the people began to start self censorship. So there's lots of people who tried to Cleanse or their faithful off any mentioning off the stroking that we have. During the past protest movement were now not under the Hong Kong government will have directly confronting The Chinese Communist Party because one off the provisional law is that the police has sweeping power. That is not what they used to have a new power to be operation like the secret Police. Britain has offered some Hong Kong residents safe haven. Many people have gone to Taiwan. You recently urged Congress here in the U. S to Ah pass. A bill making it easier for people in Hong Kong to seek asylum in the United States. How many people do you think we'll be looking for avenues like that over the next few months? And is that something you're thinking about? No, of course I would continue to stay in Hong Kong and continue speaking out for two people. But with the refugee proposal from any country, off course is useful that you know, people who worry about the future can go toe off other country to seek a safe harbour. But I have to remind the woe that actually They're already 9000 people arrested and 1600 already prosecuted and this is very difficult for those who are prosecuted to find a safe harbor. I think the important thing is for people to stay on in Hong Kong to continue demon and one country, two systems that are promised. We are only 23 year we still should have 27 years off, no change and also democracy. So you think there's still some hope then that the protests Khun B successful and that they can push back this this tide that has really picked up steam in recent months from China, seizing more control of Hong Kong, cracking down on on expression in Hong Kong. Of course, the situation is very difficult, you know, But when you look at is the European experience they have suffered for many years. But finally there's the Berlin Wall fell down. And so the hope is that also people in China one also democracy and freedom and joy hand together to seek for that, But off course, this regime ists now. Very powerful in terms of surveillance in terms ofthe, you know, suppression, and they're using law against people, but with the world's standing to get a Hong Kong I think we will continue our fight. We do not know when we can be. Ah, Victoria's but still I think the spirit had to be there. And we want Hong Kong to make it through the difficult time in the in the future.

"KCBS NEWS time. 10 51 Maur divisive language from President Trump over the weekend. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders. To face our most sacred memorials and unleash a wave of violent crime. In our cities were now in the process of Defeating the radical left. The marks is the anarchists. The agitators the looters. CBS NEWS chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett has some analysis of the president's rhetoric in his holiday weekend speeches. Let's talk a little bit about American carnage in the inauguration address in this fourth of July. I know a lot of people have drawn a straight line. I don't think there is a straight line. Yes, in one sense. Those are unifying moments, and you expect uplifting rhetoric. You don't expect something like American carnage or this whole thing about liberal fascism. And yet there, I think very distinct and different in the arc of Donald Trump. Inaugural address. American carnage was him addressing what he regarded and many of his supporters regarded as in Washington. Ah, bipartisan, Kamal of elitist who had let America Goto waste, particularly in the industrial Heartland. He came there as the anti establishment. Force to topple all of that here with his July 4th rhetoric is essentially becoming the establishment figure protecting everything that America's ever known about itself without one wisp of curiosity about things unknown. When I talk about things unknown, lets talk about things. The Trump campaign has recently learned Greenwood in Tulsa, for example. What does it mean? When you say when the looting starts? The shooting starts all those things that Trump campaign apparently didn't know about yet have residence in American history. So in this case The president is sort of establishing himself as the arbiter of American establishment, protecting all of the history as known with no curiosity about unknown or how we might progress that I think is substantial and important distinction that CBS News chief warship Washington correspondent Major Garrett Today. The top U. S diplomat in Hong Kong is criticizing the semiautonomous Chinese territories. New National security law imposed last week using the National Security Law to erode fundamental freedoms and to create an atmosphere of coercion and self censorship is a tragedy.

Singapore GE2020: Global concerns, national elections
"One of the things we're gonna be covering is the Singapore elections coming up July 10th and for a closer look at what's happening and why it's so important. For that we go to Bloomberg. Daybreak Asia host Brian Curtis in Hong Kong and his colleague Doug Prisoner. Thank you. Now, one of the exciting possibilities for the pole is no more. The estranged brother of Singapore's prime minister will not stand. Lisa and Young said he decided to step aside because quote Singapore. It does not need another league. Well, that said Brian Singapore will surely get another early Prime Minister Lee Shin loans People's Action Party has won every election since independence back in 1965 and that is not likely to change this year. It's going to be very interesting and one point Whether or not these results will reflect the P a piece handling of the covert 19 crisis to get some insight. Brian and I asked Bloomberg's the bureau chief in Singapore, Joyce Co. To join us. Thanks so much for being with us, Joyce. I guess. Let's pick up on that issue of the fact that there is unlikely to be any surprise outcome in the election. But the question is whether or not this is going to reflect in anyway. Voter sentiment on the prime minister's Handling of the crisis. What do you think? Hi. Hi, guys. Yeah, that's right. Reading something awful way election has kicked off into losing so long has Put the nation that this will be election like no other And that's because this is happening in the midst of the pandemic, and he's asked for the elections to be be called because he wants a fresh slate. He thinks that things have stabilized and it's a good time, too. To get to hold this post to get a good men date for the ruling party we've seen over the last few months and sing upon the government has really tried to get control of the crisis. I's been interesting journey is a lot of ups and downs to sing off over here. So we set it up. Well, we We held out the model of how to contain the virus, but against like many other countries who cut also by how contagious and asymptomatic the virus who are still Somewhere in April with various cases such in a foreign worker Dhamma trees with a lot of these farm workers stay and live in close quarters, and that has actually pushed the surgeon does that. Our workers has actually pushed all virus told the various cases in Singapore to more than 40,000 which is one of the highest in Asia, the government has said. Repeatedly that, um the cases have been so high because they're doing a lot of testing, and a lot of these people have been asymptomatic. If you look at the total cases, actually. About 0.5% of the people actually in hospitals, and we have one of the lowest fatality rate in the world. I think a lot of people really admire Singapore. It's it's AH, It's a place where Have a first rate health care system. It's one of the richest countries in the world, great schools and all that. And a pretty good social safety. That too, so other than the handling of the Corona virus outbreak. What are some of the key issues that really move the populace? I think the main thing for a lot of people would be the economic fallout and how the government would be dealing of it. We've heard a lot of about this being said during the during the run up to the election. Something about facing a contraction of as much as 7% this year, and this would be the list contractions since our independence in 1965. So it's AH It's a big blow to the economy for people for us, so I used to be a success and be thankful girl continuously every year. It is a quite scary dudes that the economy would be contracting so much. If the government off their shows have won that more businesses local Glenda that unemployment rate in Singapore could could hit a record this year. So the grim picture actually off the economics in Singapore, some of the economic analysis that has been done surrounding the economic fall out of the crisis. Comes away with a conclusion that is essentially created a greater wealth gap. And I'm wondering how that's playing out in Singapore. I was reading that over 80% of the population live. In public housing, and I'm wondering about how this may may figure into this election. Well, we've had for stimulus budget in about 100 days in Singapore this year and the Singapore Sending about Singapore dollars 100 billion almost 100 million to to try to prop up the economy and still for a lot of people who find themselves other jobs or businesses who are ah Facing lots of troubles. We're seeing the government giving up the direct cash handouts, which is pretty rare onto people. So blessing apartments like me. We get $600 count. India had 303 $100.

"Asked me to tour with them, so I've done maybe four tours. It'd be five. Prior to all time low term with a but I felt like I was still learning, but they gave me a chance to show them when I can do and after the first tour. They asked me to stay on as their L. D. in them. Still, your was autom- lawyer for big break. Yes, bought also don't want to take away from the fact of how much the Dresden dolls and the band the click five did for me prior to all-time low, bringing me on so also definitely as changed my life in the most amazing way possible, and yes, they will be the biggest tours and the biggest opportunities. So, that's definitely number one awesome. Do you think there's certain cities more leading designers are in our is a kind of all over absolutely I would say. Nashville is a hub for a lot abilities. Las Vegas is as well and New, York City and La so I think you have your big pockets. They're by no a lot of friends of minor based in Nashville in La. Based on the kind lending wine. Country Context Your Nashville. You'd think so, but it's just that Nashville is. We're all US companies are mostly based out of a lot of production companies that are based in Nashville. You had a lot of rehearsals. Basis based on natural because it is such a big music city. It just evolved into this thing where. Basically up abusive, not just country, but it's everything now is become like the Capitol Music I industry goes, but I have a lot of friends in Las Vegas to that are doing amazing things and l.. A. Obviously has ob at York City. Almost, you're just never going to go away. All the live shows that why did you choose Boston up like I said College, and I love I fell in love with the city at when I tour. I was able to keep a job working at local venues here so I still can work at the Paradise Club that still club that's open, but only work at the House of Blues now, which were used, so they tore that building downright used to be the leading guy, and then they built a building. There S for House of loses. Now is right down the street from my apartment. Apartment, so it's Kinda easy to just go into work on the to go and win. Concerts were still a thing. It just kind of worked out great, so I could leave for tour. Come take some time off and needed to reduce them. Burke go work at the venues in them when I'm done with that SCO. Back onto her. It's clear just kept working in a you eventually just were able to live off time. JUST BILINGUAL GIGS, yeah! I did know where exactly what is going on on. The snowball kept role. Mike Fall. That's just BEC-. I know Comedians like to perform local clubs like try newer riskier material versus like a big tour. Do you feel the same way? I think the bigger budgets you get with different artists. You can get different fixtures at do crazy new things. There's new fixtures coming out every year at golden age of lighting. Because every year there's new products. There's new things there's so many new things happening. The technology is just off the charts with what we're able to do now so like a kid. Kid in a candy store. Every year is a conference on. They got now like what are they doing? Now do this while he does that. Okay? Great, and you just kind of get involved and he's like okay. You don't try that new product if we can afford it the budget great idea for and then you kind of do it. Then that's were. renderings of your designs, your virtual image of what looked like like what time coding at home I do time code I could see what it looks like. Visualize earlier and see what this book like live as close as you can't get to live, obviously not going to be perfect, so you have you as much you can't before the show and you like okay like it could look a little different so I feel like you look at different products in you're try new things just based on budgets. Are you giving creative small budgets? Budgets you know you can go to home depot or something together. I have a few friends that just would go. Home Depot makes her own awesome to lights, and they would be like cheap, but they would look fantastic, so it really depends sometimes you can blame a budget for not being able to get you, but UCLA people be like. Yeah, but you know you can make anything you wanted. If you have the time in the Dr, what's your favorite cheap product for like amateurs in your favorite leg, expensive bigger professor product. G. Product in forest tubes reserve. J. Fragile. You're right, and you put them in a certain orientation on stage, and they're great. There was an artist called mute mass that I saw for the first time when I was at access at. It's been burned in my brain I. Still See to this day. That's the first time ever thought that was ever, but in my mind Mike. He, took just took a whole. Bunch of harassment lasted amazing. Show My. Favorite new trendy extensive product. Biased but everything that robey is doing right now with their profile movers, and their led washes is amazing. Products called the spiner and a tarantula, and those are just they're led's and you can do so many amazing visual effects with them, so you can create. Very dynamic environments they can start from staged gets thrown into a building like four blocks away would still make it. You know stuff like that. I mean those are good for Rina's. You want to do it small clubs, but I have to say roby products for share with. Them. The curve out a lot of things, so they see what what like a conference at their headquarters in Florida, they'll invite a bunch of designers, a lot of industry people down to see what new products are going to be debuting, and then they'll have AB- side-by-side. It showed them show us what? The beep looks like compared to a product of similar from different companies, so they'll do a shootout with all products. They'll invite us down. They'll ask us what we are looking for a product. That's not vented yet, so they listened to the LDC's and they know what we're looking for that. We don't have yet, and they know what we like. Their company that I feel like listens to these a lot than most densely smart. What do you usually want to go to techniques that you prefer a signature? Move a real. Difference speak from my process on that so I listen to the artist's music nonstop to a point where no of music mix it into my ears for a while the settlers in order basically make notes when I think transition, because what mood would be set what color temperature all that would make sense make a bunch of notes on that. It'd be like okay. Where do I? See the light of design in their album artwork toward Y, C, artistic. Branding that they want to do because every album cycle basically comes with its own branding, so you kind of want to echo that in the live show, so that's where the video content links in with the album words..

"So how are you planning on getting? The data turns out. She dropped out of Grad School. So you have to pick a feasible project. A good adviser should help with that like everyone goes end saying I'm going to do the. The most amazing work ever, and it's going to change the world. You don't you don't need to do that, asked me you need to demonstrate that you know how to do science that you know how to design a project and carry out a project and collect data scientifically and it statistically and write it up well if you do that, you're going to get a masters degree even if your product. Product is not particularly exciting. Though I was happy that mine has been very well received, he'll walk knocks to the project. You chose on sharks and how you went about creating idea doing the research, and like getting results in sure yeah, so I went to the College of Charleston in South Carolina and it's a very unusual marine biology program because there's about forty students at about five hundred faculty. And that's because there are a bunch of research labs from different government and state agencies and other universities all in this complex where everything's walkable from one another which means, there's probably someone nearby who does something that you might be interested in, and they're all potentially available to be an adviser, so it's a great setup. The of a lot of freedom turned out. There was no one who is there. who was a shark person? But there was someone who is there who has a fish ecologist who was interested in charge of the had not worked on them before, so he became my adviser, and then I worked with him to find a team to fill in the gaps in knowledge between us. I used a method for studying the Shark Diet. We use a method called stable isotope analysis. I won't get into it in. In detail, it's very massey and mystery and don't worry about it, but we found someone who knew how to do that. Who is based at the College of Charleston campus at the Fort Johnson Marine Science Complex there a couple buildings over, so he became on the team, and so on and so on, it was very easy. The most expensive part of marine science research is paying for boat time. Shark fishing. What is? What it sounds like except you don't use a rod and reel, you use more complicated fishing gear that can catch a Lotta. Sharks at once like a big net came use traditionally in shark research use what's called a long line, which is a long length of rope as every sailor. No, as soon as rope gets on a boat, magically called a lion, but otherwise identical, so it's a long length of rope that has tons of Beta coming off it. And I'm one on either end. There's an anchor in on either end there's float, so you deploy that for hour and then reel it in the one we used had I think fifty hooks, and we've usually catch five to ten sharks on at each time. They also have a longer longline that had I think five hundred hooks, and that we would either catch a few sharks, or there's one particular kind of shark off south, Carolina that catch one you catch fifty of them just sort sitting on the boat and you measure them. There's a bunch of different measurements you take of not their length, but girth height. How far apart different parts of their body are, and that's useful for understanding how healthy they are. We also take blood which analyzed later in the lab for that stable isotope stuff. Take a little muscle biopsy. Take a little bit of skin. We can use that to get their DNA for medical population genetics, and you can also play a tracker tag on them that whenever there breaks the surface, it talks to a satellite in orbit. A tells you where the shark is anywhere in the world. You don't use that on every shark. Because one of those tags is three or four thousand dollars. The most expensive part of this is paying for the boat time so by joining an existing survey. Survey and saying hey, you catch sandbar shark sometime. Can I come out with you and whenever you catch, Barshop I take muscle, plug from it and the rest of the time anything else. You catch I'll help you what you need. My Department of Natural Resources scientists colleagues answer to that was weight and I don't have to pay you for this. You're just like you're GONNA do a bunch of work and I. Don't have to do anything different yet. Sure that's awesome. Okay, naive question. Did you ever hear for your safety I have never been been by shark. I've been bitten at a lot. So we tell people in general sharks, not going to bother you unless you bother them. As scientists were bothering. You have to be very careful and if you're careful, and if you're aware of where they are, and you treat them with respect and don't let your guard down. You're going to be very safe. I have colleagues who have been injured by sharks. They all got cocky said I've been around thousands of sharks. This one's little whatever it's not going to hurt me and they get cocky bites him. Him on the arm and even a little shark can mess up your day. Nine apps through instant gets to like not WANNA. Put myself in endanger. There's just not much danger with it. The animals are secured by a team of scientists. They can barely move. We just make sure that they're secure without hurting them. Or how do you have an animal contentiously injury I don't think I can even grasp that actually. Love is the wrong word I think because yeah, they are dangerous like they do hurt people sometimes very very very very very rarely, but it can happen I respect them. I'm in awe of them. I recognize there in to the planet, and without them, the world is not only a less interesting place, but it's a less healthy place. So. Predators help keep the food chain in balance and we need them. We shouldn't be part of the food chain. I don't wish to be bitten or eaten though I actually do have draft language in my will. In case I am actually killed by a shark. They'll get probably more like that. My Diet is GonNa do me end. Yeah I just don't see it as dangerous. There are a few times when I felt unsafe, but those have all been boat related rather than Shark Related Gotcha. There have been times when we've been out in rougher weather than we should have been out and we should have not gone fishing day. They see a gathering samples in the shark wants to use U. of them. How do you learn about the food cycle? Not Yeah, so the basic premise of stable isotope analysis is you've heard the cliche. You are what you eat. Yes, on a molecular level that's literally true when you eat something and digest it and grow. You're incorporating molecules of that something into yourself. And you can trace the natural radioactive signature of prey items and Predator and determine. This is eating forty percent, open, ocean, fish, and sixty percent, seafloor, crabs and shrimp. And you can do that just from a few drops of blood, and that helps you sort of map out the food chain, and how the predators interact with each other and interact with the food chain. It's a way of doing that doesn't involve killing the animal because the old way of figuring out what shark eight would be to cut it in half and see what fell out like you see in things like jaws. Let really how they used to do it. So these newer nonlethal methods, there's a lot of math and computer programming involved, but from my perspective I draw blood I freeze. It I sent it off to allow I. I get an excel spreadsheet in the mail. These kind of projects leads. They take a long time. Is that why you're Burgum is five. Yes, accents, so a master's is typically one or two research projects, and a PhD is usually four or five that are related, but the goal is to get multiple peer reviewed scientific journal publications out of them. If you just do the research and then don't tell anyone, there's really no point and you wasted everyone's time and the bunch of money, so the goal of scientists to get everything published in review. Journal says when you learn how to market yourself kind yesterday mentioned is they're more school? After your PhD you have typically what's called a post doctoral fellowship, which is sort of like an apprenticeship under a more senior scientist before you become a faculty member yourself so I did my Undergrad at Duke and North Carolina then? My Masters at College Charleston South Carolina, and then my PhD in Miami, Florida and then my first post doc in British Columbia in Vancouver and now I'm on my second, Post Doc. Doc in Washington D.

"Again. For many mainlanders. They return of Hong Kong marks. The End of China's century of humiliation call with them is China's and Hong Kong should be returned to China. Hong Kong is part of China and Hong Kong. People don't like aging. Well you guys. There's something wrong with you guys. So most of the mainland Chinese they really supports Beijing's position on Hong Kong. The thing is in the years after the handover more more mainland. Chinese people came to work in Hong Kong and the more that happened. The more Hong Kongers were like. Wow we are truly not the same. We've spent over a century living under different governments different economies and different cultures. And they mourn wanted to assert their own identity even more which frustrated China to no end and you also have the Chinese government and people in China increasingly fitting that autism Hong Kong. People are kind of almost like spoiled children. He's always asking for more already. Get more than anybody else in China. Scott and Acumen asking for more and more of their rice being protected still. China's infrigement was relatively slow going until two thousand three six years after the handover. The government of Hong Kong introduced an amendment to article twenty three commonly known as the national security. Bill it was essentially an anti-subversion long that many Hong Kongers saw as a threat. They're civil liberties for the first time. After nine hundred thousand nine again you had half a million people marching in streaks Hong Kong to protest against the article. Twenty three naturally shoot. It was the largest protests in Hong Kong since the tnn massacre and it worked. China shelled the bill indefinitely but then regrouped and came back even harder around twenty twelve eight demand from Chinese governments that on contra changes educational curriculums and Mick. Hong Kong's edgerrin curriculum patriotic. And then you have the high school shootings in Hong coming out and say but did spring washing us. We don't want brainwashing. Be One copper free liberal education. This is the Environment Xi Jinping walked into when he became the leader of China in two thousand thirteen and a year later in the streets. A Sea of umbrellas. The symbol of a mass demonstration underway in Hong Kong students and young people formed the umbrella movement a series of sit in protests that oppose. Beijing's decision to have more say in control over Hong Kong's electoral system. Hundreds of thousands packed the streets of downtown Hong Kong as police fired as many as eighty seven cans of tear gas determine demonstrators shielding themselves with umbrellas and spawning the so-called umbrella and in the last three or four years you even have some of them beginning to talk about maybe we need to look at south determination because Hong Kong is a Chinese colony will never be allowed to have democracy and those words of self determination and independence caught the ears of Beijing. Red-light Fash Hoar Cross Beijing. The Chinese government and they come up with an even harder approach and that is the background to the events that erupted in Hong Kong in the summer of twenty nine thousand nine hundred which brings us back to the beginning of this episode and to the current protests that are still going strong and only escalating Beijing has has violated. These promises in has been trying to really encroach into Hong Kong controlling Hong Kong Roy Moore eroding autonomy. So all of those have been really God. Hong Kong's young people to feel that they have no future that has really tricker this assistance from young people and at the same time. We also want to understand that. This trend has been increasing over time and it just fall from the sky. Now you're talking about a younger generation of people in Hong Kong who feel that they must now stand up and fight for the core values of Hong Kong. The kind of languished using you said if we don't fight we may not have a chance to fight for Hong Kong's caught Banu any longer so we will now make our last stand. We may all four but we have four. At least we fall having defend our values..

"There were some small protests but mainly it was quiet people in Hong Kong knew. They had to accept their fate. They had no other choice. Some Hong Kongers were genuinely going to miss the British who let's not forget were colonizers you will had parents taking their children's tool the Hong Kong government offices and other places to have pictures with those colonial symbols before they were taken down but not everyone felt that there were some Hong Kong people. That saw the handover in a positive light. You also at the same time have Many in Hong Kong who fueled that is good for the colonial eras to end. We are.

"After probably a wave in the sixties and seventies and so I kind of went underground again property in the eighties and nineties star to resurface again into the early two thousands. And so I think it's just easier to find val- information and of course astrology is such a vast topic on its own. There's so many different styles. Show me different schools of thought. There's so many different systems so it's really hard to say what's false versus. What's not unless people are really just outside the rules that have been established for the past thousands of years in terms of western astrology. Were there or was that popular twentieth century. I think when they became popular when I was middle school. I mean places that you would find horror sculpture in the back of the newspaper right or basically the only place or if you were big name astrologer and you had a website that you would post your horoscopes on. I lost interest in them fairly soon. After discovering books you know different websites because it wasn't giving that much information it was very generalized. Wasn't specific to you. So I found a lot more enjoyment out of research versus I hope people know that horoscopes are fairly limited way of using strategy right because what astrologers were writing this typically doing. We're just looking at the rising sign emplacing planets around the chart that way to give us an analysis but that is not specific to hundreds of thousands of Aries Taurus or cancers like it's supposed to be a draft overview a pref- idea and it may not apply to you because you might have a completely different rising sign in your son sign for example the I remember as a kid when people are talking about there is no way. I'm the same as every person born August like. Oh this makes zero sense. I even know there is like those three different Sun Moon. What's the third one rising sign or ascendant right rising sign until ideology co-star and they were like you're owning Leo for two things I was like? Oh I didn't even know that. Did you ever have any doubts about strategy during it? Because I know there's doubters out there. I mean at the time that I was really getting into it. I wasn't using it in a way to do predictions or anything like that. I wasn't that advanced so I was mostly reading just like you know about moon signs or different mercury signs Ravina signs as foundation. It wasn't until I got probably in the past service. Seven eight years possibly start to get deeper into different styles of astrology or different schools of thought so for example mundane strategy which is world astrology. So it's using Xiaojie to study the world at large political movements or governments or countries. You can pull up a chart and start looking at that chart and seeing how the current sky right now is impacting upon a planet or a person or something like that for example. And so that stuff. I think is largely accurate when you have the correct information. I think it's just convincing people like there's a correlation right. It depends on what your interests are not. Everyone has an interest in global affairs. Like I do like I like that kind of stuff but I think accuracy really depends on information that you have so you need a location you to date of birth and you need a time of birth and times you the most important thing because like you said you're not the same as everyone born in August on the same day based upon where you are in the time that you were born that's gonNA adjust your chart in such a way. That's the other thing that people rarely talk about is that it's personal experience. It's your family right so even let's say for you. Were born the same exact day as Britney spears. Let's just say she had an on to be a pop star. But you might be doing something similar but not quite because of your environment because if your ideals because of what your soul desires and so. I think that's important for people to remember. There's always free will astrology just because we see patterns and symbols in such a way. That might say that. Something's going to happen doesn't mean it's going to happen a particular way. It depends on the people involved so there might be transit to say. Oh you're going to get married this year. Oh great great and then something might happen. That says hadn't decided to get married but something similar happened. Maybe I committed to a business instead or are committed to a new partnership but it wasn't a wedding but that's still falls under that branch that umbrella but it's really your choice. It's your decision point. The energies there. But how you use it in what you decide to do with it is up to. You is so amazing here expert. Talk about this. Just feel like there's so much like general inaccurate information spread about this and it's harder really understand strategy properly as science as a child. Did you think you're going to be able to incorporate into your career or is it just kind of a hobby for you absolutely not? I had no idea I didn't even know that being an astrologer was a career. Ray Books neither things are available. I didn't know what these people were doing with themselves. Outside of giving me this infraction. But I didn't know that this was actually a career path. I didn't know that we're schools for either until much much later. And I think that's just because of lacking information and also probably a lot of skepticism people even today they don't believe in it and that's fine they want to disprove it and that's fine but I don't think many people have been successful because like you said it's a a study or science that will be debated. I don't think it's a science. I think I liked thinking of it. As an art interpretive art you know if you know how to read symbols in such a way you can interpret the art. That's all that it is like. I said I think free will is a very big component in it. So you can't really say is absolutely going to happen because there's so many moving parts involved. I hope that we're moving into Asia. People can see that this is a art that has been passed down from generation to generation all over the world. Right if you go any place on earth you're probably gonNA find some form of astrology in that region and so it's incredible that our ancestors were studying the sky and able to make predictions that were able to help them in their day to day life. So when was the plane in your life when you're like hey I can make money off this like you just started thinking can explore career in astrology? I didn't think of it that way until people asked are asking you to do readings for them and I was like. Oh okay well. I guess that's the next step. It wasn't something that I said I'm going to do because I want to is more like people started to requests the service from me announced like all right well. I guess I'll start doing that so I feel like my astrology. Career has definitely been like. Oh all right. You want to do this okay. Sure so. It hasn't really been planned. It's really been like a being led by whatever. Astrology wants me to do next. Essentially how are you? How did these people find out about you? Probably on twitter so when I joined twitter back in twenty ten roughly ended twenty ten. I met a whole bunch of black astrologers on twitter and all we would do pretty much talk about astrology all day and it was very casual. It wasn't about US trying to show off or you know make content. It was just people chatting about their personal experiences and sharing their knowledge and it just Kinda grew from there and I think that's kind of where I started to gain traction with people who are falling and after doing that for a while people to request we readings I started to get more involved in posting things on social media regarding astrology and it just kind of grew from that point amazing. So this happened already like after you went to school for studying traditional Chinese medicine her before this probably happened after I entered in two thousand eight and I graduated in two thousand twelve but I was maintaining astrology throughout then time just for my own pleasure and enjoyment and after I would even say that astrology led me to acupuncture because I felt like they had very similar principles which is as above Solo so within so without so we are reflection of our environment. You know whether it's the stars are nature around us. Man is his best self when he's in harmony with the heavens and and so that's attendant in traditional Chinese medicine to you. Know it's of course geologist. Same way excellent. We're on the right path medicine for me right so I couldn't astrology for bringing me to acupuncture and I feel like acupuncture really works well with astrology on its own. I'm still trying to figure out how to use medical strategy more directly when I'm working with clients not use a little bit to help people pick surgery dates or to help them figure out health issues so it's a lot of fun. It's like puzzle pieces all the time for me. Like what's how do I crack this puzzle? How do I help someone using these tools? How ASTROLOGY LEISURE TO ACUPUNCTURE? And how did you decide to study it in school? I think I would say astrology brought me to acupuncture because I was ready open-minded about alternative medicine. Essentially alternative schools of thought. So because I had been involved with astrology for at least Gosh that point. Twelve fifteen years. It was a very easy transition for my mind to make between astrology and acupuncture traditional Chinese medicine. 'cause like I said the philosophies are very different you know you are existing in a bubble and if you are able to maintain the balance with that bubble you feel right. Everyone feels good. When they're living their life purpose. Everyone feels great when they're in good health. Everyone feels good when they're in rhythm with the world around them we tend to feel more sickness in chaos when we're out of step with ourselves and so I feel like that's the same idea that falls astrology and traditional Chinese medicine. How you heal. Things is by moving toward where the balance is necessary. Are there any techniques? You use the assist with your Shashi besides acupuncture just a lot of reading a lot of reading. It's a lot of research it's being curious. I have a ton of books. Both physical books books online constantly talking to people talking to other astrologers keeping up with their blogs or podcast because it's never a study that ever slows down right like you're always tracking the Scott. You're always looking at what's happening and seeing how it's manifesting here on earth so we are living through some pretty crazy times right now and it's interesting and fun and also scary to watch it through an astrological ends because you can see things coming ahead of time and when you see what's coming and you know the energy is not going to be easy. It's really hard to tell people. Oh it's going to get better guys when you know better anytime soon and you have to mentally prep people for that living in this age. Esoteric in the occult is very popular. We have lot of Prosperity Gospel. And like you know law of attraction and things like that which is fine but it's also kind of taken on a life of its own where it's almost as if people want to ignore what's happening in the world if they just say they're affirmations you know like that's going to protect them almost like. I just chat about this month. It's going to bypass that's not how astrology works. That's not what anything works. That's not how any esoteric system works but I think as things become mainstream. There's a lot of wisdom that gets dropped out in four the probably the necessary purpose of making money off of things so you kinda scrub out the rough stuff to make it more palatable and so I think astrologist a lot of time telling people like no no can't buy pass the hard stuff here. That's not how things work in any realm of any universe especially not this one. Yeah that reminds me a lot of kind of like Dino Bruni rounds like power vulnerability a sad scorpion. I remember looking her child. She's doing chart. Yeah because I think I'm definitely one of those affirmation people it just kind of keeps you from gang stress and during the pandemic of quarantine might gut instinct to just focus on. What can my podcast in my APP right now. Just ignore everything else. 'cause it just makes me unhappy but I think as she says you can have a good time hourly bad time so he to find a way it's incorporated and have you ever your mayor love to hear about that season to season. Turn turn turn. There's a reason so there are seasons for everything and that's the Nice thing about astrology is that you can track though seasons and you can see them ahead of time you can prep for them so my dream is.

"Code. Now I will. Also caveat is with the fact that in Hong Kong Hong Kong was one of the earliest cities in the world to adopt a lot of private kitchens. Because RENT IS HIGH COOKS. We Cook creatively. But they can't afford to do it in Hong Kong because real estate is so expensive. They ended up doing them. Apartments and so private kitchens. are very popular. Dot Com. And most of them are not fully licensed by the health pirate but it started really important food movement in Hong Kong. So I would say if you're just having your friends don't worry too much about it. If you're trying to build a business of the pop ups you should absolutely be figuring out how to get yourself fully licensed and legal and ready to go okay. So the one you made when you were sixteen did you just location create the Menu. Invite friends friends friends more or less. Yeah that's YEP that's basically how it worked. You taught the people in team. Basic Skills Tasting menu back then so the service was a little bit more controlled so people are ordering off menu as they ate whatever we gave them and then we also took reservations in In advance anything normally think of that was really hard or anything. I'm you're glossing over a lot of proverbial culinary school education here right. Most of good cooking is just putting food out at the right time. The right temperature with the right amount of salt sugar fat and acid. Almost everything can be fixed with SALT. Sugar some type of oil in some type of finger or lemon juice or whatnot so make you have your basics down in. Don't forget those couple of things so you opened your Pub Restaurant Highschool for fun and then you went to college at Yale and majored in cognitive science. Did you think you are going to continue making public restaurants in college? I absolutely didn't I went to Yale under the illusion that I was going to be a philosophy major because my best friend's name in high school was Plato. And then soon after I met somebody by the name of K Teo who was a year below me and she convinced me to open pop-ups at Yale to so sort of despite my yell education that spent all my weekends cooking these pop-ups I'm of my dorm out of the basement. I was in speed. Dial for a lot of new haven restaurants Chefs when I was in class and I spent all of my winters in my summers cooking in Japan. Either finding restaurants or with grandmothers. And that's how I built up sort of my early understanding of food. Did you enjoy it? Of course absolutely that's why I'm doing what I do. Yeah I why did you decide to go into restaurants? Set of a philosophy internship or something. Well it just seemed like the right thing to do because I was already doing so much of my time. I suppose it was a genuine interest. I was very much attracted to kitchen culture. In the beginning kitchen kitchens are quite familial terms fraternal. They feel a little bit like sports. Teams also especial forces units or like parts of the military the very intense sometimes for better or for worse. But there's something very attractive about kitchen culture in for some reason instinctively had wanted to spend as much time as possible in kitchens. How did you find these first internships restaurant with the way they work in the culinary world is the dodgers in stages are basically unpaid internships? And the way you get establishes you turn up either between lunch or dinner service or first thing in the morning and you wait outside the door and you try to get compensation with the chef in say. Hey I love your food. I'M GONNA wash dishes in washes floors or I want to cook for you for free. I WANNA learn how it is to job here. Whatever it is and then you worked at further delile during which uses of the restaurant in the restaurant. Size you up. So it's sort of a cross evaluation where you tried to figure out whether this is the place for you in more importantly the restaurant sort of decides whether you're fit for the kitchen and that's kind of a tradition in how most people eventually get jobs there. You just have to be able to hang basically and you have to fit in well. Did you even bother contacting the restaurant beforehand or you just showed up. Some of them in Japan didn't because you know. I was traveling through Japan with my knives in my backpack in the test would stop in places and say. I really like your food. Can I do for you? But in places like Hong Kong. I might try to get into restaurants that really respected by just turning up for you know if I knew somebody in the restaurant place. Seattle Means to touch with your chef. I'm interested in spending of time here. Why were you hopping around so much restaurant summer? You want to see as much as you can and given that I would only really be able to spend the whole summer at each location at each restaurant. Three months is not a long time at all so why not cut it shorter in his bounce around in the photo has many places possible? What kind of stuff do you learn how to behave in kitchen to make food recipes? Nice technique that sorta thing was there any particular questions you want to work for that? You really had a good time in. Japanese restaurants are really fun. The culture really crazy. It's super super intense. I worked at the restaurant called Keeping Houghton. Kyodo that's three-star Michelin and that place. You would live in the restaurant that you cooked at. All of the guys live together in bunk beds while shower together and we worked basically seven. Am until one am six days a week and it was amazingly intensity was maybe the hard I've ever worked but the commodity was amazing because you're living and breathing together and everybody starts off as a first year as a junior which means that. There's no meritocracy it's all how long even at the restaurant and how hard you've worked. So when did you know you want to work full time? You keep saying you just kind of stumbled into it. Yeah I thought it was be definitely shift for a long time. I met my other CO founders In New Haven. They're doing their pasties masters degrees in. What not Yale. And then they came up to me and said Hey. We're GONNA build this Chinese concepts. Do you want in the beginning. It was just a Chinese fast casual and it. After I joined the team it evolved into something a little bit more ambitious a little bit bigger with a more sort of broad goal of trying to change people's understanding of Chinese cooking so they convinced me that we had something good going on. It would be exciting to work on it together. So that's how we started working together. Is that when you were like? I guess this is my full time job now. I know pretty much I met with them. A couple of times in an afternoon time may with him at a coffee shop in an remember just going back to bed and think to myself. I may or may not have been offered a job. I'm not really sure and a week. After we graduated we working at you know and three months later. The first restaurant is open. And I'm cooking there so you. It's one thing leads the next kind of heaven quickly. Yeah how did you meet the Jansy founders again Kim Pop pop-ups at you so they discovered you more or less to behead this silly idea of trying to open a restaurant with chef and then they were like wait a minute? We're opening restaurant. I guess we needed chef. There is a twenty one year old doing whatever. He's doing across the street in his dorm. Let's talk to him okay. Let's work together mets. How Nice so that was the first rush on? Newark was more permanent. So I was wondering it Founding pop ups I mean it's totally different as business. You have business goals you have. They expressed it need to accomplish something. In the case of everything we do is to accomplish this mission of getting people to properly understand the diversity with Chinese cooking so everything you do has to push towards that fact whereas in Hey that's pretty good food up there in. Try Not to screw it up so people want to come back when we do it again. So how did you go about tying this Russian? What was that like a Founding building it was building Zulic while you need a location. You need a team to hire a team. You.

"Vogue magazine has named the sweet green of Chinese food. Today we're going to discuss how he started his interest in food how. He helped launch multiple restaurants. What his day. Days like as a culinary director and chef before we start to trump interview was recorded before the outbreak of Kevin Nineteen and does reflect pre quarantine conditions style Interest in to begin for you usually when I speak to journalists on podcasts or otherwise what want me to say is that my grandmother was a cook which is true and that the passion for is in my blood which is also true but that is by no means the entire answer to the question. I don't really know where the interest in through came from. I'm from Hong Kong people in Hong Kong food. We'd like to think culturally in critically about food. My Grandmother was a cook that was trade but by no means was she excited or passionate about being a cook in fact one of the first things. I remember her ever telling me was. Don't be a cook. It's one of those things I've been in the industry basically for ten years and it's gotten to the point where it's just what I know how to do But I feel like there must be more to that. Well I mean to put it bluntly I suppose. I think I've always thought it's important to think deeply about food. Food is a really interesting and easy medium through which to tell cultural stories. It's a really good starting point because if you like certain cultures food you tend to like their people. It's a really great way to bring together. A lot of sort of modes of thinking purchased to learning. Thai food is like kind of people. Is I for into anything? Die Young and the more you're invested in that food more you invest in culture and the people in learning and trying to mark mindsets and whatnot In no small part why Chinese food. I'm really interested in trying to change. Mostly Americans understanding of Chinese food. Chinese food seems to be this monolithic thing of the US. It's like over the last one hundred seventy or whatever years that has been developing in the. Us We've come to understand has one thing but really my understanding of times. It's diverse it's very colorful saying Chinese food to me is like someone a European food. That's how diversities we have twenty three plus provinces we have fifty plus ethnic minorities we have hundreds and thousands of cuisines and techniques in ways to. Cook food. We've been making Chinese food definitive Chinese food for at least four thousand years so there's a lot to mind a lot to explore with a few. They're playing in your childhood. You realized you're like war into food than the average person. I don't think I'm more than the average person. I just chosen as my industry. I am by no means a Foodie. Keep with food news really care about trends. I think three times a day which is pretty average. I think okay but you did open your first pop restaurant at sixteen and embedded newspaper factory in Hong Kong. So what prompted that then right? I mean a good time hanging out. Teaching French cook serving people being able to tell stories through food. Yeah you might be true. That might be ally. It's just there's a writer in Potter called Edmund Divall and he spoke at school wants to says every is basically a poet. It's just so happens that my former poetry is pottery so sometimes I feel like that you know like you just go by the World Trade to investigate the world understand more about it so happens. Your medium is food. Your medium is cooking. I think my career in food is an for curiosity about culture as oppose. And perhaps the question that I've set out to answer in the last couple of years is y. Is Chinese food so good? Why Chinese food so great and why does it it the recognition that deserves okay? So I was wondering though I'm being making a popcrush on takes a lot of effort. You have to assemble waitresses. Get people show up. I'm in amid doing that right now. With my roommate 'cause he's really looking and I was like you should open population at our house. I mean it takes a long time. So was it just kind of like. Oh Yeah I WANNA do. It seems finer. What did you have any hidden purpose center? There was no hidden purpose. Who was more like a? Why not type of thing? I was in high school and it all started because I was hanging out with my dad and I was sixty nine Last summer in Hong Kong. And what you WanNa do this summer as a island what I wanna do he said. Why don't you open a master in my thought was? Yeah why don't you like? Why wouldn't you and we just went ahead and did it. What's really fun about Papa? Best rants in particular. Is that the process for putting up a restaurant together is often quite haphazard it bootstrap -I and it's Kinda step by step. You roll up your sleeves and you just do it and you make it happen. You don't know your obstacles until you come across them which is a wonderful feeling. Ama- causes your cooking to be a little bit more creative in reckless than in a restaurant setting because you're beholden to nobody Restaurant basically there often isn't even expressig need to make a lot of money. It's a fun little type of business model and a project that is also most of the time illegal but a lot of fun to try. Yeah how did you decide? What's on the menu? It just seemed easier to cook food that you news Invented this idea for cuisine called Hong Kong cuisine Hong Kong cuisine and Cantonese cuisine but on cuisine as Hong Kong food. That's an amalgamation of all the influences. That Hong Kong had absorbed over the years whether through a British colonization or Japanese occupation or an affinity for Korea or American influence or capitalism. Or whatever answer the cuisine in Hong Kong weird mix that was very homey and felt real authentic to me. So that's how we started was cooking this Hong Kong cuisine. A really good example is for whatever reason a lot of families would eat at home. Would eat pan-fried codfish with teriyaki sauce. And the codfish usually would be bought from a Western supermarket. It would be frozen and it would often be imported from somewhere in Europe. The teriyaki sauce would be Japanese brands from Japan in a bottle. Ready to go and the way that butchered this fish. They cut the fish steaks. What's the word Dorsal laterally? Straight through this fine and it's a very odd way of cutting fish that is popular in Europe with the Japanese sauce. Hen Fried in peanut oil. Which is sort of Kennedy's oil in Hong Kong home? And that's the type of thing that was kind of interesting and odd but that's the type of reserve the first Called goes back from when I was in Hong Kong without sixty question fail. I only know how to follow a recipe online. Like step-by-step exactly. So I'd never really made my own recipe. A what was the first recipe really felt. It was your own. Who's no such thing as those thing? Has Authenticity things making things up. But every time you cook you know let's say you follow a recipe for a Mac and cheese and you taste Mac and cheese wins on the plane. You're like Oh this is salty. Nothing you add more salt Original recipe so. That's the first step. You believe that you have more control over the situation than a recipe gives you and you innovate by having things here and there and all recipes. All Cook Learn by learning basic ideas or concepts for recipes. Exception you innovative upon them you substitute ingredients for the other ingredients. You substitute techniques for other techniques you change measurement of specific ingredients for example. And you end up making a dish that is different enough that you might be able to claim as original. Do you have something you remember making that? You're like really proud of my first signature dish back when I was sixteen. Was Clay Pot. Rice in Bowtie in Cantonese refers to a small clay pot. But it's also boats I as in both I five in both is fine as Klay Pot rice and this sort of Hongkong Southern Chinese Cantonese style way of cooking rice in a clay pot. Clay pots are wonderful. Because they're semi perforated which means that as you're pushing into a clay pot that heats in that steam gets trapped inside the pot with hot air pushing air through clay. So you have this sort of like lovely Tursi earthy aroma to the rice without having to add any ingredients into it rice. It's pretty technical dish which also known as kind of peasants or rather low cost dish because on top of the rights you would put chicken sausages or whatnot that would release the oils in flavor. The right so it's kind of like a one stop shop for your meal and so that was my first signature dish and we originally had been doing with pork belly which isn't super common in Hong Kong but the Came from me traveling in Shanghai for a little bit before. We opened that pop in fall in love with shanty-style braised pork belly so there's a little bit fusion there but that was our original dish. Sometimes it would make with Taro. When it was the winter just because it was a little bit more starchy warming. It was pretty good for others. Who MAY WANNA try making their first. Pop Oppressed Sean. Was wondering if you kind of had a guide will mentor. Lots of up and coming to coax and families and people in general who are excited about opening the first pop ups and obviously the most important thing to just go for it. It's a little chaotic. And it's the haphazard process but you won't really learn from unless you go through the motions and you actually do it. That's usually my first piece of advice. I work with the city. Seed in new haven for Appro- employed the food business accelerator often which has new haven locals. Who are hoping to build their businesses. Just hey my mum makes delicious. Food might partner makes amazing sausages. We want to figure out how we can do this. In the puffs out place people love events. People love experiences. People love things that are odd and special. So pop-ups are really great sort of like activation 's for cuisine for example. Can you imagine doing a Filipino? Pop Up in new haven. Most people have not had Filipino before in Oakland so cool. This is a great way to learn about the so I was the vice gopher if you want to get a little bit more technical and you have aspirations to move your popup into something that's a little bit more sustainable business wise. I would strongly encourage people to start learning how to write up business models so in my line of work. It's a little romanticized. It seems as chef spend most of the times in hot kitchens yelling at each other quickly and have tattoos and they're really sexy but really most of what shifts do is kind of boring and difficult and annoying. We don't often get to do what we want to do. All the time. A lot of administrative work a lot of writing. Business Puzzles looking at your. Pnl's inventory management hiring firing HR. It's a lot of business stuff in restaurants tend to be smaller companies than. Let's say a retail operation so the chef or the head of the kitchen who comes up with creative ideas for food ends up doing a lot of these administrative things so I think people who started in pop ups who want to build a sustainable business out of it should definitely learn how to do some of those things at learn how to write basic business models and do basic accounting or if they wanted to do maybe a one time event or a short while. Unita location I officially on the record should say yesterday the perfect you know the key here. Is that once you start charging people for money. You're providing service and if you're opening up to the public it becomes a health hazard if you don't.

"And also helpful to really. Early stage founders. 'cause sequoia prides itself of always being in what we call the pre seed and seed business. And then working with those super. Early Company is all the way through IPO and beyond so we measured it on the number of seed stage companies that wanted to talk to us even before they may be even needed funding. How did you achieve goal once making sure? The existing founders were supported. I mean it was actually two very different ways. One is in what I would call the spoke help. How could me or the investors helped them and their companies with individual problem solving or growth opportunities. So that could be helping them with. Launched helping them in a crisis situation helping them higher. That was first and that's obviously very specialized to each and company and then the other way was how am I eighteen? Much more scalable ways that had to do with connecting founders with founders and building community. There's a few as sequoias done that. One is through events so we have an event called base camp where we take all of our founders camping or it really gives founders and opportunity to reflect in connect with each other and certainly we bring in great speakers and deliver great content and then from there. We started what I would call founder boot camps. A program called aunt with stands for amplify mobilize and propel it's like a ten week intensive where our founders really young companies that seed and series as companies come together and they meet every Thursday for four hours in the evening going through critical business building concept and then they get to connect with each other at the end of the day. Most founders have the skills that need they just need the support of a great network to help them solve problems in the moment to those were a couple of ways that we built loyalty either very specific or building community interesting. Is that how you try to stand out from other brands? Those are two ways that we really do. Try to stand out. I think the other way is just. We have a very small dedicated team. That's all in we think of ourselves partner versus an investor and will stand by you through each stage of the journey and we also have expertise at each stage of the journey as it really does vary depending on where you're at for goal to. You're saying you want to make sure no companies that were awesome like didn't apply to quite. You're like one atop the companies. Do you actually have trouble with? I would say we have trouble in that. People may not want to come meet with us before they feel like. They're ready because they really in many cases. May WanNa work with US. But they feel like they want to be perfect and that in fact is the worst thing because we can actually be most helpful when companies are still rough around the edges. And I don't think it had anything to do with us. Sides the fact that a founder sees brands like airbnb or dropbox or Google. And they think Oh. I'm not done yet. But those companies. Were you know two or three people in our offices when they first started so. I think it's telling those stories that it's never too soon to start with sequoia and then also being helpful to them even prior to going into business with those companies that makes sense. I don't think I would even think of talking to sequoia unless I had at least a million users or something and that's detrimental to our business to because we don't want you to wait that long because we can probably help you get to those million users. So when's a good time? So what stage? I think. Obviously it depends. You don't have to have product market fit yet. You have to have a compelling market size.

"Lots and lots of checks and balances at CBS. That's something that I'm proud of. It's not just me talent organization it is true it has to go through a lot of people before it gets to television. I because obviously would never be intentional. But you can make mistakes and you know whether it's his grammar or someone's name wrong to actually being misled and somebody lying to you the more people that it the better so we are sort of like the foot soldiers on the ground relate. Something's happening and we get there first. And we're the first ones to documented and send it back to New York but once it gets into New York which is where our headquarters are located. They broadcast everybody all these different layers whether it's another producer. Who's reviewing the footage that you saw to some of our research and fact check teams that go to our scripts. Obviously everything is scripted. Focus Television and say. Hey I saw this. Can I get this number to call that person mixer? This assure confined this statistic. You know what she can't find it and it's not there let's not put it. He can't risk that. Sounds like a lot of treasurer. It's a low pressure. It absolutely is a lot of pressure in a good way. Though would you watch news organization? That didn't put a lot of pressure to get right so so for others who want to become a journalists. Now who are in school div any particular advice for them like how they pick which feel they want to be in positions right for them and like how to approach it after graduation absolutely. I would say find something that you have a passionate and don't say journalism because journalism is on compensating through sports journalism. There is tech journalism. There is general assignments. I mean you can be specific to one town in Mexico. So journalism could be latched on to any aspect of our society in our world that needs covering that needs information so in my case let's say fascination with the Caribbean Okay Sedan. Start Learning Research. Read write talk to people learn something and then use that to journalists. There's a lot of very successful people who don't even go to journalism school because let's say they went to medical school now. They have a really wide understanding of the medical field and they use that to cover. It used to be an expert but be curious about something research and read about one thing. That really intrigues you. That you wouldn't mind doing a lot of and then cover that and I think that that's a really unique way of setting yourself apart from an army of people who call themselves journalists but don't necessarily know what they want to cover. You know you can go to some of these conferences and you meet some really brilliant people who set themselves apart not by their actual reporting by their knowledge of issue that they like to report and I think that that's really important so I don't think you need to look at the trajectory that's been placed in front of you by others. Tried to make your own. Maybe that's what makes your work. Unique is that you've chosen a different path and it's a promise you at minimum a minimum. It's an interesting way. So instead of focusing on the position you want focus on the stories you WanNa tell and just go after the stories of a really great way of putting it. You know the one trait. I think that all journalists have and you can censor right away whether they have it or not is curiosity. It's trade at the end of the day. It's a trade in the way that you craft a story so as long as you're curious enough to ask the right questions you're curious enough to research and read about what you want to cover. The rest can be taught. I can teach you how to build the inverted pyramid. I can teach you how to frame a video shot but the curiosity to WanNa find this story to curiosity to meet somebody and go. Oh my gosh I need to know more. That probably can't be taught as much the ability to recognize a good story the ability to be interested enough in a place to sacrifice so much energy to do it. That's unique and I think that is probably far more important journalists than his ability to frame of a shot or two pretty picture so for those people who are like going out and getting their stories and making close on Youtube and trying to report further. Score newspaper do you have any suggestions on how they can get the next level as it just reaching out silly news outlets with their stories to tell you how I did it and I would argue. It worked pretty well. Let's say your local news reporter in southwest Florida. You're going to school and you've gotTa store that you just publishing your local newspaper but you realize that there's some sort of national interest reach absolute editors because it's almost a guarantee that if it's of national interest that's probably do some national editor somewhere looking for information volunteer yourself say had just got this story. You can run it as it is or I can help you get more information. I can shoot the next interview for you. Volunteer yourself on these national levels for these big stories in learn. What is a national story? Then you start building that reputation so the next time something happens in our region that Edwards me go. Hey I got this guy. Alex Miami and he did this last time you know. Maybe he can publish this this time and you sort of can continue building. Resume that way once you get out of school obviously talk about the millions of different avenues that you can take if your goal is to work at the network. Do that. Try and do that whether it's through freelance or an entry level position to say you're GONNA work at a local newspaper and eventually you'll get to the New York Times. That's going to be a long trajectory and can be. Don't get me wrong. It's just there's a lot of ways to reach out to these editors who are looking for information. Learn how to capitalize on these stories. That might have a whole and needs to be filled in charge information. And if you can be the one to fill it you know if you're the only one who's got the interview doesn't matter root for the New York Times. Cnn or local TV station. Good one with the interview. That's pretty important to remember. Yeah because it's very timing base to. It's very timing based journalists are for the most part very respectful of other people's sources information. Meaning if I got a big interview with let's say defendant in a international case. I to attempt to sell that interview as is with my name on as my interview and nobody will hopefully try and steal it for me. But it's a good way of getting your name out there. Do you feel this. Ticking talk sometimes because right now you emailed people to TV can interview them and you're just waiting and like I got need the story now like got a couple days. Yeah that's the constant trauma of eternal life to just like waiting for people to get back to you and then there's also this inherent terrible feeling that you're just constantly bothering people all the time. I did use to reactions. If I'm reaching out to you it's either the best time of your life or the worst. Right very rarely. Yeah sort of in the middle get national news coverage so I generally say if you're on the one end of it which is if it's a good thing capitalize on it because new cycles were very quickly so if you've got journalists reaching out to you the odds are in two days. They're not going to be. Let's just sort of the way that things work in terms of like how the new cycle works and what's being covered. How quickly things changed from bad end of things? Obviously it's not a great thing that is reaching out to and I'd probably feel terrible out but it's about accountability right. You need to sort of do that. It's pretty difficult to constantly be doing that. And reaching out waiting reaching in waiting dot is what we do is we talked to. People has ever been a story you knew would be really interesting and well received but you gave up on because he thought it'd be too intrusive you know. I've been pondering that a lot more recently since I started at. Cbs Four years. And it's come up. In the era of the mass shooting. Mass shootings is something that never in a million years would. I obviously have wanted to cover nor did I think I would be covering as often but obviously with national interest around gun. Violence happens and it's happening so often and they are so difficult to cover because the people who are the perpetrators obviously some most part. You can't talk to and so the only way to sort of express what happened expressed you know the severity of the pain. Talk to the victims. And I can't tell you how excruciating that can be. You know it's important. Obviously when these things happened the information getting ready is important. But the idea of reaching out to the parent or a loved one somebody who's passed so violently into medically that day. I mean before I call I sit there. Yes No yes no should we. It's it's the right time it's just not read time. Should I do it through an intermediary so many different things go through my mind about how to do that? Right because it's so difficult and Hey have we lost or dropped story ideas because that is too difficult to do yes. Hundred percent people probably would like to hear that but sometimes you just can't do it. Do I think it's important to continue telling that story whether it's not without specific character? Yes absolutely because something's happening in this country when it comes to mass shootings in gun violence and the only way too I think anyways change things is to talk about it and to help understand it so I wouldn't ever say we should stop covering it is so incredibly difficult to cover it. When you know even just reality of your phone call is going to maybe traumatize somebody some more. Yeah that sounds like a hard decision to make every day and it's been happening a lot seattle heart and it's not just mass shootings. We do a trauma all of time. And it's important. I think we should also have an understanding of mental health after these sort of traumatic events so that we don't exacerbate it in any way we had the conversation after Parkland in terms of how soon is too soon to have these students reliving what they saw. You know. You'll see almost an hour after there's a student on camera telling. A journalist sometimes live on television. What he saw. What experienced is that the right thing to do? So these are conversations that we're having now more recently because of just the sheer amount of times that were having to do it and I don't think the right answer yet. Your human sort of know what feels right but we are discussing and trying to learn the best ways to go about it because it's so difficult and so sensitive to balance. How do we tell the country what's happening but the people in the messengers that we need to do it? How do we not traumatize them anymore? It's a balancing act and I don't think I ever gets it right. You just hope you don't get it to wrong nonsense. What's the most difficult decision you've had to make to fill your destiny destiny? It's big one. Who knows their destiny? I think looking back. Probably going back to my days as a war correspondent. 'cause I.

"And it started message. News networks before imports. Funded and I'M GONNA be living in Nairobi. Kenya confusing. I wasn't but I hope that it's going to be so then. You look back up to like six months of college and you've published stories from abroad and you're going okay. Like is that not. What a foreign i. It does publish a story from abroad so now to my resume for correspondence school. This is the new school with your host Christine Welcome to new kinds of school where we talk about career paths. You don't normally get to hear about in the classroom every episode. I talked to someone with an interesting life path and learn about how it got to where they are today. Hey guys welcome back to season two of the new school with Christine Hong. I'm your host Christine Hong and I'm so excited to share all the amazing people. We talked to this season to kick off. We're sitting down with Alex Pena. Who started off as a foreign correspondent and is now a digital journalist and producer for CBS. His career has taken him from Kenya and Mexico to Cuba to Latin America to Afghanistan where he was literally in the war zone with the soldiers every day to do work to Miami. Yeah this guy has lived in a lot of places and he's barely hit thirty. Last year he won an emmy for his work with CBS for his coverage of the school shooting in Parkland Florida and during the show. We're going to cover how he got started in journalism how he got hired at. Cbs and what he thinks it takes to be a good journalist before we start. I just want to drop a note that this interview was recorded before. The outbreak of cove nineteen in the US and does reflect pre quieting conditions. All right. Let's get started. So when did you start concentrating on journalism so journalism? I started in my senior year of high school. And you can SORTA call it that. We had like a local within school television network that we sort of started up so that was like my first taste into producing news talking like very low level. Stop but started my interest right like this is a way to tell stories. You know people started coming to you with problems and issues and can we talk about this and you start to get that. I little taste as like. Oh like you're sort of a voice for the voiceless. Epa thing was like skate videos with friends and editing and going on like we can make TV and this is fun and then transforming that into like TV news at the high school level. Then I got involved at the newspaper as Close University where I went which was sexually starting up their video program so I would essentially do television news reports but then they would end up being published online. Then I had some internships throughout college that let me do actual television reporting than pretty stories that they would run them. That way or vice. Versa GRUESOME FOR THE SCHOOL. Newspaper's website and they would run those stories to publish online half of it airs on television. The recipe gets rid of for an article in fact for a long time. I called it multimedia. A multimedia journalist your platform journalists a million different ways to say it so it was like the platform kept changing but we just kept on stories. When did you realize you want to do it? Full time I would say that like Freshman Year of college and I think a lot of people have the same. What can I do travel? Okay disturbing something has a way to do that. And how can I combine the two? Nobody will take a chance on a nineteen year. Old trying to four correspondent. Writes Trying to do this myself. I'd say the first sort of Big Story. I did was two thousand ten when I was still in college and lives in south Florida and the earthquake in Haiti. Hit and we had a large. Asian population lives here. Miami has was southwest Florida. Where I was in school at the time had met a few of them. Through some other stories I worked on and one of my friends was going to Haiti to try and find his family get lost. Communication with earthquake came and sort of that. Let me go with you to let me go with you. I'll tell your story. It's a way to go there. It's a local angle on a much bigger story so I followed him to Haiti. After the earthquake he goes on you know basically a citywide search of his family and documentary holding an come back to college produce a story. I was interning at a local station every time has that been hearing this story. There were like Okay too short. And anyways I'd give that to them. They aired it on local news with that so blood. You're just like this. Sounds like a story. I'm GONNA follow it? Yeah I mean that's really what I've been doing like ten years later. Still doing the same thing like this is a cool story. Let's follow it and then that's what you do but I would say that was my first taste of like okay like you can make this happen if you're the one with the story you're the one meeting interesting people. They've gotta run. It was sort of like my game plan for the next five years of freelancing some may say for the better or worse but that's what I did so after you went to Haiti. Was that when you realize like. Oh this is why I really like doing. I WANT TO BE JOURNALISTS. Full time it was definitely one of the first really momentus reporting experiences that I had I had done some pretty significant work at the local level but to be on a story where sort of the whole world is watching and the whole world is looking for information. You sort of learn pretty quickly the power information and what it can do so unfortunately a lot of that. He donations and the help that was sent that way after the earthquake were fumbled. But at that time to see that what you were reporting to have people responding with how can I help is super powerful? It was the first one that I was doing. And it was just as grand scale of the world going. Please tell me what's going on. And what we can do to help. I'd be like there wasn't an adventure but more important than it was that so that definitely sparked my interest or held it for the last ten years. Did you know what kind of journalists she wants to be like? Did you dream career in mind when he left college? I knew I wanted to be a foreign correspondent and there was a few ways of doing that you wanted to television always loved videos medium. They have always been a visual learner. Myself so I knew that that was the route I wanted to take zoe a handful of television networks that do it and all the people who are doing what. I do are much older than I am much less diverse sites. What can I do to sort of skip that step? That may take some people's ten to fifteen years to get where they want to be in one of the ways to do that was freelance so rather than taking a relatively you know a foot in the door type of job or these internships offered themselves to me right after college. I thought let me figure out a way to via foreign correspondent. Obviously it's not going to be for who I want it. I let's be foreign correspondent than for the medium that you on for the network that you want versus worked for the network and try and become a four correspondent and so that was sort of the path I tried to take. I had met someone who worked in the field and he told me. Look at a map and see what the world is about to know or is about to learn so like when I think of four correspondent covering Afghanistan or Iraq. And things like that. And he's like but that's being done like look at a map evaluate research learn in trying to predict where you think the next important hot spot of the world is where people are going to need to know the most and go there and build your sources and build resources and build a career to be ahead of the curve when things happen and so whether I did it rightly or wrongly. I ended up choosing East Africa and I bought a one-way ticket right out of college. Because I started looking at the map we started looking at like a growing insurgency of Islamic militants in the Middle East and sort of how that was spreading regaining power and what presented itself to me at the time. What Al Shabaab in Somalia which was like a sort of smaller little brother groups al Qaeda if you will who had been involved in that area of the World Spreading Central Africa we're getting involved in Somalia north and south and I thought okay. This could be like an interesting way like they speak English. Kenya relatively safe place to live to cross the border from Somalia. South Sudan's a new country like half of the youth of the world is in in Africa outs arising economy but also has conflicts. Let's try that. Let's see if that works and I just started doing like everything I could to learn and research about the area before I went started messing other. Correspondents Live Their Messaging News Network. Say I'm a foreign correspondent and I'm going to be living in Nairobi. Kenya knew anything. I wasn't but I hope that was going to be and Sort of like snowball effect from there ended up moving there a week after college. I actually didn't do as much molly work as I wanted. Ended UP IN SOUTH SUDAN. A lot at the time because there was a lot of border conflicts. Going on because of the recent secession of south Sudan who had become the newest country recently and sort of built like I only did this for six or seven months but I really liked built a little network of journalists as well as stories so then you look back up to like six months out of college and published stories from abroad. And you're going okay. Like is that respondent does publish a story from abroad announcing my resume foreign correspondent so sweet learn republishing the steroid. I did all sorts of things so there was. There's a network abroad called Voice of America. News independent news organization that's funded by the US abroad to cover issues relating to America's foreign inches so they have a radio network. And if you've been anywhere you can usually tune into it and they have one set of Nairobi that was covering East Africa Reese out to their their bureau chief and told him Guillaume ready to go. He's like good to know about a month before I sold my first story to them and it was terrifying was like oh my gosh. That's not working. I'm getting hungry. I don't know if it's GonNa work for me. And he eventually called for a trip to South Sudan and I published a video and radio piece for them for a few hundred bucks a pop something like that and is sort of against about their own that every set to ABC News said. Hey I'm a reported for Voice of America News Year. Any just going to be doing this ended up selling some raw footage to them. I think I did a story About a border clash happened and you go up to see nine head working for ABC and Voice of America. I've got these stories you any any interest in having me and I'm just sort of moved from there and then eventually ended up settling majority with waste of American news and I sell maybe two or three stories that week radio video and then would help out any way cancel from appearing on camera for some stories to just writing like tex pieces for dot com or anything that they would take really Which I do think that that was the key was like diversity of being there and being able to do anything. You'd.

"Has like their own definition on how long their seasons will be in stuff like that but for it was basically like a full year. a full year would be like the entire circuit and then he would be divided into like part one of the circuit first six months and part twos the second six months and every every sport is different. Everyone has their own structures okay. So you've been doing this for time for four years now. How is year career progress over four years? Why was he for the first three years? I was just playing heroes of the storm so it was kind of just trying to be the best in here as the storm and and you know over the years I've joined different teams which either have offered me you know higher salary or Or I just think my chances of winning the championship will be better with that team. I think they're players. They're more promising. So basically the first three years I feel like you're probably fielding offers to join teams. How do you decide which team to join? Yeah so the majority of my career. I just try to win as much as I can so For the majority of my career I join a team that I think has the best players. Like oh I think this is really really good. I think if I join we're going to be like the best team and we have the highest chance to win so that's usually what I join teams off of and there was one exception where a team offered me a really high salary is like the highest in the League at the point. And that's like the one time I joined the team where I didn't necessarily think that every other time is pretty much just. I think I can win with this team. I think the highest chances of winning pretty much and winning usually means a lot more money. Yeah well how much few offered for that team give you the most money. It's actually still wasn't an it was nothing crazy a little over two thousand dollars a month so it's still nothing too crazy. But the here's the storm seen as any sport is relatively small to the dominant East sports right so he would be more like the rugby or squash the whereas these teams come from. How many are there? There's probably an infinite number of online teams out there but there's not that many like established teams technically the number of teams out. There is like limitless. There's probably only a ten or twenty very popular ones there. Any famous teams like they're just known for making winning teams. Yes so those would probably be the ten or twenty. I talked about so like cloud. Nine for example is one of the biggest teams that are out there and these teams would generally be in multiple sports so cloud. Nine not only has like A. Here's the storm team in two thousand fifteen when we won but they also have like a League of legends team and they might also have like more recently they might also have four night players that are competing under cloud nine so they'll go through all the different like online games and they'll they'll be in a lot of different ones. They'll have their brand and a lot of these different games. So that's the business itself today. Take a percentage cutting the winnings who is in charge. Has THAT WORTH. Yes so well. The person in charge is just whoever started the company so for cloud nine prison called check. He started a company a long time ago. I think hugh he actually was like a manager at a different team and then he left to make his own team still out these contracts work. What did they get in in return for Free? You onto the team in paying you. One part of the way teams will make money is by percentage of disguise tournament winning landfalls we twenty percent of his winnings and he wins two million dollars. That's a reasonable amount of money. But I think the bigger part is like the branding and merchandising which is once again kind of like very similar to traditional sports. Like you know a team that has like a Kobe Bryant They're paying him a lot of money and they're probably not making everything back just by what. He is winning but they can sell coby Bryan t shirts. The you know like like shoes. And you have t shirts or shades of your name on that. Yeah I have a few Jersey's actually pretty common any sports when when you join an established team usually That's actually one of the things that make you their Jersey which is like a custom team shirt wiliest literally like the Jersey like what the NBA players. Where so you quit playing tournaments like a year ago I stopped at the last year was started this area. Why did you quit for me? I just wanted a break Competing is very stressful Doing this for like an average of ten hours every single day. Almost pretty much. No break if you want to be. The Best of the best sides very stressful and then dealing in a team environment is very stressful. As well as you have to tell other people what they're doing wrong They're telling you you're doing wrong. You know that environment is a very difficult environment to kind of manage Is there a team leader coach Some teams coaches not all women. At times we do have a coach even with a coach. It could be difficult to manage and usually en- game. There's a like a shock collar but not necessarily like a leader that like leads all the players there might be like a captain but And you listen to what he says in game stuff like that but Yeah most most people are pretty young. So it's not like there's one player on every team leads the team effortlessly without any problems us. This is the real world. There's all even in the job. Your boss might lead your team. But that doesn't mean he's like everything's happy within your team. I guess Famous coaches or anything. I would say there's very little famous. Coaching coaching is actually a pretty Undeveloped in these sports compared to traditional sports as a whole I would say Very the the money hasn't really spread to the coach side in in most sports so most coach positions are either underpaid or paid for that. You're not going to get the top quality talent. Yeah Yeah 'cause if I were to be a coach you could play. Yeah so okay. So you're going very tired and burnt out from all the playing and practicing year and at the same time a streaming was also alternative option than I knew that streaming the game. I would probably make around the same on the as I did playing professional so I wasn't sure but I had some other streamer friends who who said they made around the same so I was reasonably confident. So you weren't nervous or anything. I was definitely a little bit nervous because my stream was not at the level needed to be to make that but I figured once I did it full time and I could stream much much longer. You know wasn't like tuner figured I'd at least give it a shot and see a see if I could how did he make money streaming so you stream on twitch and twitch will pay you based off of a number of different things they show adds to the people watching your streams so you get a little bit of bad money from you know however many people watch the ads and they have this thing called subs or subscribers which basically people can pay five dollars a month to directly support you? I Guess Yeah. And that's like the biggest growth of revenue on twitch inside people. They'll they'll pay five dollars a month and they get some like side benefits. They get like cosmetic benefits essentially they get like a specific emotes that your channel offers than they can use them in Chad. They can use like you know emotes of like maybe a hero you put in kickstarter basically pretty pretty close pretty close but it does remain. Revenue Stream is still feels different. Because I can't anything else. Were RELOCATED SHIPPING. Five dollars really. Yeah we just ship. In five dollars support you not can remain wave. Yeah it's very different from pretty much every other profession. I mean I guess you pretty much nailed it it. It's kind of like a kickstarter starter. Patron humanitarian if like regular artists are filmmakers. I don't know they could just offer five dollars from everyone and make enough to live and keep doing their their work. They love yeah. It's pretty crazy but I mean I think that is kind of the future where that's trending towards like artists. Thanks some some music. Artists have streamed on twitch and they get same as all the others. They have debt subscriber featuring a lot of people subscribe to them. But let me for those artists. They already have their revenues like covered. So it's not like more money for them Particularly giving do you give money anyone? I would say it's like a community kind of things just To draw a line to Netflix like you mentioned earlier Like if someone likes your stream they could potentially watch anywhere from like thirty minutes to like. I don't like four hours every night right so it would. It's essentially entertainment for them so for like five dollars a month if they watch maybe on average one hour every night of your stream and You know they. They're doing like seven hours every week. And kinda just like any other form of entertainment for them. The same watch enough. They wouldn't think much of it and they'll be like. Oh Yeah it's probably good to show this guy some support and then you got like some special features like everyone can see next to your name that you you're subscribed you get like special mo stuff crew. What's still so not the business model Youtuber Netflix says. Can you imagine of Youtube was like Hey. Just pay five bucks. Which are artists USA? Poor people are just used to it being free. I don't WanNa pay for you to read write and Netflix. I can't even imagine them doing that. Instead of requiring a subscription Teasing Watch for Fisher. I think live streaming news. Well it's really new. And in growing things soanes definitely not like anything else in the world right now and its own category for sure. So was that transition like what's your lifestyle like now. My lifestyle now is a lot. Chiller basically will stream from five to six to twelve or somewhere in that range typically So I'd wake up to some extra sizes do some errands and.

"I can tell you that the House has paid for itself in the first two years ago. That was That was big relief. yeah Almost one thousand people have stayed there And it's been booked every single night. And then in the meantime years voting other tree houses yet the as helping on people with their houses that they were building Kind of became a thing. All these young intelligent people moving to Hawaii building triage is in the same neighborhood as a kid community. How many houses do you Aaron? Be Up right now. so they they launched legislation on the big island that limits short-term vacation rentals Basically if your lot was created after nineteen seventy three you can no longer vacation rental and all of my properties were created after nineteen seventy-three. So just before you're so I've had to stop Advertising all of them actually But am I peek? Us helping three Sizeable Property Management Companies With their listing so is probably about fifty luxury homes on the big island now like so. You really agent percentage. The I had the option to work at every meet so I knew What it took to be successful the platform Not Too many people go from like running a property management company to working AIRBNB But I kind of other way like going and diving deeper into this sector so I would go in and optimize their listings And run experiments on them a testing headlines pictures the content really making sure that it showed well and then I was paid off the performance. In the increase in bookings. What's Xtreme? I can't talk about it. Well there's some stuff that I'm working on right now but Interview Rounds. You like a year interesting. So how did you end up on? Hgtv SO HDTV was looking for Properties of feature in their snooze series called tiny paradise and the way they set out the casting calls was sentenced to home depots in various tropical areas So the Home Depot in. Hilo knew that I was going in there every single day. And they're like hey like you know we just got a casting call from. Hgtv do you WanNa be on the show? And so I started talking to them and then came to the realization that they wanted to see a project From the very very beginning to the end the whole entire series of like trials and tribulations And so my house Was too far. Along is nearing the end of the process and so I was able to connect Them with a friend of mine who is building and it was at the very early stages of their house that friend of mine Ended up like recruiting me to be on her show Which is called tiny tiny Hawaiian getaway or something like that. But is it not watch yourself? How do you not know the name of the show is like it was so much fun? I had never been like a reality. Tv show before It was just like how they make like. Hdtv shows was Pretty Fun and the show did really well. It was like the ninth most watched show on the day. It came out and so It got a lot of like Really positive reception and And they said there might be opportunities for us later down the line you Gani Fan Mail Got Some tweets. Seattle's like ten Mil wouldn't make because you don't really address guys on what episode of the show is with the show called again. Shows called tiny paradise episodes timing Hawaiian getaway okay episode. We're not GONNA services week. Okay let's see What is your biggest mistake was during this whole process in journey? Biggest mistake that I think that in a process in a new challenge. That's that cumbersome. It's really easy to get caught up in it and you take for granted The small things I didn't really like photograph any bit. My journey I was just so busy working all day long. I wish I would've Taken some more time to really appreciate that like I had this kind of opportunity That's I think that would be the biggest mistake. Is Like not fully appreciating in the moment like how How like adventurous and crazy thing as gable to embark on So now when I do things I try to like. Be More mindful in like really appreciate the moment of what's happening so so. I gave all my guess three seconds to pitch themselves like whatever they want at the end of my podcasts.

"That's like all the time I still feel like that. Okay and but there was a so yeah. Let me think four months into comedy. I bombed really really hard at the club in Pleasanton called Tommy tees and I was like I i. I just thought I can't do this. Like this is too hard so I took an eight month break and but then after eight months to get back to it because you enjoy it are because you wanted to prove yourself are because you believe in yourself you I knew there was something pulling me towards it. I could just feel it. I knew what I wanted to do and I was like. It's just I I just had to figure out some way to get back into it so I started taking comedy classes. There's stand up comedy classes. Was it helpful? It was really graduate. There were a couple of things that I learned that. Were really helpful. Like one thing that stuck with me was never to go with like your first attempt at something and linked discard the first three versions and then like the fourth fifth sixth. That's like actually good stuff. People have such different senses of humor though. So how you know. It's because it's not funny just because the people give it to you just happen to not find funding. Yeah with stand up. You really have to have a lot of self confidence because usually it will Chris. Rock has a good take on it. He says that if the audience isn't laughing it's probably because you haven't explained it properly. It's not that the joke isn't funny because it is funny. It made you laugh so you. It's your job now to explain why it's funny. I was just delivering basically. Now it's delivery. Yeah I mean the way I think at this point is like I'm just not gonNA stop so it doesn't matter if I'm good in bed because this is what you love to do. I really like doing it and you know if I suck at this then I guess people are going to have to deal with that. You love it because I'm sorry. Yeah this is love up here okay. Let's say you have a friend that you're really tight with. And he says you Richard. I really want to get into comedy was the the most efficient way. Get there like give me a five minute guide to it. What would you say? Well the five guide to getting into comedy someone who hasn't done comedy before. Yeah Mason makes the best things. We talked about all right. Well the first thing you. Oh Oh you know what all you gotta do. Is You gotTA figure out a way to just get on stage because fighting through that initial resistance of just walking to the stage and just talking into it is the thing that scares most people and so if you can just if you can just not think too much and just get up there and do your thing and just judge later than the. That's like that attitude will help you a lot of gas as much as you can doesn't say it doesn't matter if you're just as much as you can right as much as you can like it's going to Google. You just have to keep on going. Don't have to worry you don't have to worry too much about all the logistics as long as you. Just keep moving the ball. Then eventually everything falls into place perform and keep meeting. People are going to get like more gigs dot way. Do you feel like anyone can do it if they tried. Hard enough in we're passionate about it. Yeah what am I? Friends was telling me he wanted to have. He wanted to do an experiment where somebody would try to become a successful standard comedian without doing comedy. So why do you perform? But you don't try it all you. Just go out there and you go like well. Traffic is weird isn't it? You know like all these people everywhere I was in my car and this guy was jogging faster. And Yeah Yeah I mean you can learn how to do comedy like it's like 'cause you see the same patterns over and over and over again and you just have to adapt to those renaissance of Humor. Yeah give you thirty seconds promote anything. You want shots anyone do you. WanNa say oh. Wow okay well you can now find me on my website. Richard Survey Dot Com which Christine told me was available to our survey dot Com because Richard Surviving. I still a Russian hacker who turns a poor website and ask to pay him twenty thousand dollars right. Get it back. Chris did not do auto renew his demeanor and the only reason richer not knows. It's not important because I was talking to research interview I was like Richard Surveys. Dot Com is totally available the main during this interview. God I'm so I mean that was the main purpose that we did. This is to give me a real website because okay. I'm giving you thirty seconds. Back for the shout outs and whatever you WanNa do right now.
