"We got mark calling in from New Hampshire mark. You're on free talk live. How are you guys I'm actually calling about Boston Logan Airport arrested a Chinese exchange student back in the end of November late December. With twenty one miles of the. Hey he was trying to fly out to China Don't we have a right to know who's being EO was And why would he have I for DNA? It was arrested. It was in the Boston Herald Boston. Four and then legal to have DNA. Whoa IT'S KINDA SUSPICIOUS. As he was arrested that what was he arrested for? While the story evaporated nobody'll cover it. That's the problem For some reason people will not cover it and there was news was in into Hampshire papers. union leader The Boston Herald. Obviously and yeah. I just think we have a right to know who's DNA. Oh was what was his Objective I would say that I don't know about a right. A right to the requires something from somebody else. I don't think as a right at all and that obviously requires somebody to get over information but if the government has that information and we've paid the paychecks of these people then yeah okay. I'll give you that that we we have the right to know everything that the state knows. Well I think the American people have a right to know Who's being a or what Interesting then sure. I think that I don't have the resources to research it. And maybe you fellas Or someone else out. There could do some research on it and bring public It it just seems arm and the timing you know and it's on and it's about Hong Kong Island when not hearing anything about the the people that were Disagree with the government. You know here. Everybody's being given ten thousand Hong Kong dollars to deal with the corona crisis which is damaged their economy greatly and You know that's probably that's probably China. Doing the sort of thing China does which is the carrot and the stick right Test your money thousand troops waiting to go in there they go in. We have no idea They did China. Did have twenty thousand troops. Wait and go into now would be the time to do it. When most of the flights to Hong Kong or cancelled the foreign press can't go there and I was there A little over two months a little less than two months ago they Everything seemed as free as it could be but I think you for the call. Mark appreciate it. The number eight five five four five zero three seven three three. It's eight hundred fifty five four fifty free L. I looked up his story a little bit while he was on the line. Okay it seems that. There was a foreign researcher that worked at Brigham and women's Hospital. Okay and perhaps related to that research show is unclear but the researchers visa was cancelled. Okay and the FBI's been cracking down on similarity in a in and out of the country. So probably they're working on some kind of either I P cutting edge research type stuff or Other critical patient data. That would be my guess. I mean I suppose if somebody gave you seventeen vials of some seventeen different people gave you vile of their spit. It's yours you can do what you want. But if you're swiping it from the hospital you worked at then. It's a strange and suspicious form of theft and I totally see why I don't think it's illegal It seems to me there are some rules. Cdc and other like four three letter agencies in regards to transferring biological material. Yeah I'm sure that seems to be what they picked him up for and he was also a foreign researcher who may or may not have been under investigation as well certainly already suspicious intriguing story like the caller hope. They release more information. Well he's probably right that the news cycle has run on this one and we will hear nothing ever again and you know. What are you GonNa do about that? Well speaking of CDC type agencies the international version the WHO has some things to say in regards to some other biological samples in particular the Corona Virus. So it in their opinion. It seems that money is a good receptacle for transmitting this disease. Have you heard about that? Yeah so supposedly the Corona Virus Constanza surface for up to a week. I've heard now. I Look Ladies and gentlemen if you're taking your corona virus news from me and not researching it for yourself on the Internet then seem on you but these are the sorts of things that at this point the the Internet is rife with stuff and we don't know much of anything everybody's like whole up at your house and don't live Your Life Watson Stop the. Who from making recommendations the most recent of which is stop using cash? Yes well governed Nash. No cash central government agencies hate cash and I think it's because they can't track it. It's their money by by the way this was one of those funny things about the Senate event that we had yesterday where we went and talked to. Was it five of the nine senators. So they had a quorum at that point that they asked about the terrorists and drug dealers. The the old crypto bugbear of. Hey this. Bitcoin is only being used by terrorists and drug dealers. When in fact the money of choice for terrorists and drug dealers is the US dollar especially cash. But I think that that's just sort of one of those things that governments are you. They use this over and over again and really what they want. Is they want complete transparency into your finances. They want the ability to stop you from spending. If they feel like stopping you from spending take a look at China right now. China's doing the social currency thing the social score credit score. And if you jay walk too often or don't your seat to the Little Old Lady on the bus or whatever it is that they decide is is unacceptable behavior. It affects where you can travel what you can spend the money on a whole variety of things. Do you want the United States government to have the ability to institute that kind of power here not to say I'm not claiming that they're going to but I will but I'll bet they liked the notion. Yeah and do you want them to have that kind of power? Because that's what credit cards are. Banks are an extension of the Federal Reserve and the Federal Reserve is an extension.

Food Neighbourhoods Presents Tin Hau of Hong Kong

"Today we're off to explore the neighborhood of Tin Hau in in Hong Kong which is pronounced tin like the mental and how like the question so how do I get that. The answer is pretty simple. Go to the nearest. MTO Station Asian gets on the Blue Island line and get off at either Tin Hau or Fortress Hill alternatively. If you decide to take a taxi it's a good idea to use either of those. MTO Stations Sion's as your point. That's because strictly speaking there is no such places in the area that lies between these two stations and is bordered by Victoria Park Victoria Harbor and Braemar. Hill should technically be called either Causeway Bay or North Point. The Phantom district of Tin. Hau actually gets its name from the nearby Tin Hau Temple Tin. Hau is the goddess of the scene Cantonese so these temples erected in her honour have traditionally attracted fishermen Chaman families who come to pay their respects and Ostra protection from the ocean necessarily expect Tin Hau temples usually found dumped along the coast of Hong Kong. However in this particular neck of the woods extensive land reclamation work in the early twentieth century has pushed the temple further and further away from the sea as a result? If you walk into Tin Hau Temple today the closest you find to get your feet. Wet is the Water Fountain in the courtyard. I generally quite pleasant spot with covered seating being a chance for some spiritual contemplation the puck that thought for now luke plenty of time for rest and reflection of the end of Ottawa right now. We're we're off to explore some of Tin House. Earthly Delights and we are beginning to in Fortress Hill at the station gets out exit a and crossed the busy kings road onto oil street being shooter look out for the double decker trams as they trundled past find your bearings little snippet of local history by first nipping into oil street art space. This two story great listed red brick building dating back to one thousand nine hundred eight used to be the homicide home of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club but after the coastline moved the club set sail to new premises in the nineteen thirties and today the converted art space ace is the only surviving waterfront building from that time standing on the corner of oil streets and Wang on road spend a moment to take in the old tenement buildings well I erected on this reclaimed land now have to shed his space with several much newel unfought Shinier office towers while you were there order a coffee Alfie to go through the window at Smoko an owner operated hole in the wall cafe occupied this same pavement spot for the last four years for an extra jolt of Benji. Let yourself be tempted by the slices of Banana love that often sit on the counter with Your Cup Cake in hand continue along Wang on road turn left wbt onto folk. Yom Road and then take a right onto electric road which is one of ten house major thoroughfares runs parallel to the hopper electric road road gets his name from Old Power Station that was decommissioned in the nineteen seventies demolished and then turned into housing for the road around as it bends left an enter enter Causeway Bay market. This is a typical example of Hong Kong so-called wet markets that can be found almost every neighborhood in the city stole operators tend to wear release on feet for good reason the floors at these wet markets are usually soaking wes on account of the live fish and other seafood that are sold out two polystyrene boxes filled up with water and melting ice fresh meat is also sold alongside the seafood but in the city it comes with a word of caution in Hong Kong fresh meat means live meat not that fluffy farm-to-table marketing speak pig's trotters watches and snouts hang on hooks on one side of Causeway Bay markets while live chickens squeezed into tiny cages clock and school on the other side. Animal lovers be warned in fact the same goes for anyone with a sensitive stomach skip this part of the tour. I'm probably shut your ears for the next ten or twenty seconds at Causeway Bay market. Live poultry plucked from their cages by multitasking butcher who then ways them tags them and kills them right in front of paying in customers the chickens then handed to the chaps at the back of the store to be defended in cleaned and win the caucuses returned to the front counter the butcher slices of the feet it cuts the body into chunks and Hanover in a plastic bag for those you still listening at this point. Don't be surprised to see black skin chickens on the butcher's board causeway Tapei market. It's local delicacy and a curious sight to behold when I encountered at the bottom of a clear Chinese soup on that note it. It must be time for spot of lunch tin. Hau is home to plenty of roasted goose restaurants however something tells me that right now you a feeling like like something a little bit more healthy and wholesome so let's leave the market behind and head over to campus a Japanese Carey House on the other side of electric road campuses led by Chef Fujita Kanter and his restaurants simple approach to food can be summed up as minimal fuss minimal fat. There are no additives in the food and plenty of no meat options on the menu making a popular choice for the city's health conscious order the carry with fifteen kinds of vegetables and see if you can guess S. O. Fifteen kinds before you look to your play clean. Here's a clue to get you started the big white ones with the holes in the middle a called Lotus roots so how have we got on at campus managed to name all fifteen kinds of vegetables yet egg heads can reward themselves with a sweet treat one of Tin House many any dessert restaurants an actual fat. We all can going somewhere else for pudding is after all a popular after new tradition in Hong Kong so let's wonder under along the street to Ching Ching Desserts and have a flick through their extensive menu staple dessert ingredients include sago mango.

This can also head around the corner to anti sweet an order their signature jury and Tofu Dessert Tuck down sing funk streets anti sweets it is easy to spot by the cartoon lady who appears to be smiling laughing on the shops yellow and red sign edge however the smelly fruit is definitely an acquired. I taste so don't expect to fall juries charms straight away fortunately for us. The final stop went off food. Too is just the ticket for cleansing pallets. The Hong Kong Island Tap House also on sink funk street is one of the best bars in the city to sample beers by a growing number of local. Oh craft brews these include young master. Yardley brothers black-eyed Kylo and Moon Zen at first you may well feel spoke for choice but with almost forty types of beer on tap so why not order the tap house be a flight to begin with six is one hundred sixty eight Hong Kong dollars offer that we definitely recommend you try Yadi brothers Hong Kong busted an award-winning Ikea that is brewed with sweet melon apricot and licorice alongside those strong flavors it also pack strong punch at seven point two percent.

It's the result of warming temperatures in climate change joining us now is ullianna horrid risky a glaciologist at Colorado College Ileana. Welcome thank you so much. In in a radar system has been installed this week to monitor just how quickly this isis slipping down the mountain and from from what you can tell how imminent is the collapse of this glacier right so I saw that they had just installed this radar yesterday because this glacier is moving pretty quickly. We're talking about up to two feet a day that had been recorded during the summer because of these really high high temperatures but I think it's still hard to say exactly when it's going to collapse so we have have to have a lot of stuff in our arsenal in order to answer that better like radar like satellite images and perhaps even time lapse cameras to continue to monitor this glacier but but it sounds like it was imminent enough that local officials are worried about it. They're taking actions to keep people safe absolutely yes so the thing. Is that the fracture action in this particular glacier. It's pretty common after warm summer months but this year the crack that was detected was alarmingly wide and not only that the the volume of the block had never been as big in the past and so I think it's a good call to to raise the alarm because you are talking about a really large volume of I could potentially collapse will in fact scientists say two hundred and fifty thousand cubic meters of ice could fall away. I have a hard time even picturing what that is. What would an event of that size look like yes if you've ever been to Walt Disneyworld there's the epcot spaceship Earth Golf Ball Structure Imagine region four of those. That's how big this. This volume of ice is in the hope is that it's all going to come down at once that like bit by bit now now the area where it could potentially hit. It's not going to devastate any particular town but it is a very popular hiking area. You and your husband were climbing in this glacier last summer. what was it like. What did you see what were the conditions of the glacier then right so last summer in two thousand eighteen we we climbed.

"Now according to the chinese zodiac nineteen forty was a year of the dragon three months later. The family returned to hong kong. The child legion fan grows up in hong kong and in eighteen he returns to san francisco uh where eventually after spending time back and forth from the u._s. to hong kong he becomes the movie star that we know as bruce lee possibly the world's best best known martial artists and certainly one of the most revered now in december one thousand nine hundred ninety two production starts on his film enter the dragon now at the same time. I was living in-home call. I was living in hong kong with my family. My dad was posted out there in the navy and we lived on hong kong island in a place called poke them very small we left hong in january nineteen seventy-three and sadly in that same year bruce lee died of cerebral edema at only thirty two years of age six days is after his death and to the dragon is released in hong kong and the film is considered by some to be the greatest martial arts film of all time all the more fitting giving that star was born in the year of the dragon. The water scene in that movie was filmed place in hong kong called abidine harbor which was unless and four kilometers away from where we lived at the very same time and other locations for enter. The dragon were filmed. The places around hong kong island would have been filmed when we lived there may be my claim to fame now not mentioning bruce bruce lee because of the geography coincidence. I'm talking about him because of a phrase that he used most notably toward the end of his career. Here is the phrase used by lee in the nineteen seventy tv series long straight less than two years before his death empty your mind if formula shapers like water now you put water into a cup it becomes what do you mean do a teapot ought it becomes the water can flow on drip or crash be water. My friend brent according to the book artist of life by john little which is a collection of bruce. Lee's writing poems and private knows news. The thinking behind the phrase be water came to was struggling with master in the art of detachment he was saying he's junk and thinking about his frustration with detachment in anger he punched the water and then he realized there was the answer he says in the book about the water by struck it but it did not suffer hurt again. I struck it with all of my might yet. It was not wounded by then. Try to grasp a handful of it but this proved proved impossible this water the softest substance in the world which can be contained in the smallest jar only seemed weak in reality it could penetrate the hardest substance in the world. That was it. I wanted to be like with the nature of water. So why are we talking about this. Well maybe author of g._t._e. Who was born five years after bruce. Lee says this about this phrase. He's basically i refer to it. I use a martial arts term mind like water water response to physical forces around it. Totally appropriate doesn't overreact doesn't under react you throw a pebble that does pebble back to calm the ballast again you throw in a boulder. What does it do. It does boldness that. Does it very dispassionately only for the rockets. It doesn't get old mad at the rock for having disturbed com life back to calm the balanced again now out of these metaphors from nature. I've got a couple of lessons. I've learned lesson number now. What jumps out to me. When david ellen uses he's phrase mind like water is the idea that no matter what you're engaging with developing the ability to engage at the appropriate level for your state of mind to be permanently ready is the goal and then whether you'll presented with the equivalent of a boulder or or a pebble in you'll die responding appropriately. He's all about being ready that calmness that readiness. That's probably really relatively easy to achieve. If we're sitting quietly maybe relaxing meditating but i recognise less easy when you're at work and the phone ringing emails coming in and people chewing land so what g._t. Helps us do is develop that ability to be ready that ready state regardless of what's going around us. It helps us prepare to be present with the one thing we should be engaging with and i think david himself has said it's not a bad getting things done. A minor petition is the g._t.'s effective because it helps us ensure that the million one of the things that could be trying to get our attention any any moment in time a parked somewhere else interrupting us right now so we can trudy focus on the one thing that matters and that's why i find funded really useful. I mean i'm recording this podcast right. Now i have a million and one thing going on in my life work stuff home stuff and so on but he doesn't allow me to be able to be focused entirely on just doing this one thing to the best of my ability so wise i in year old man talking about g._t. For teens and was wrong with this microphone. Why.

"I'm Carol hills. This is the world. The sounds of protests this weekend in Hong Kong, hundreds of thousands came out into the streets, there to show their dissatisfaction with the way China is trying to run the city. Hong Kong is a fishery part of the People's Republic of China, but it's -joyed special status for years, one that allows for more political freedoms, they're now Bill would allow thorns to extradite Hong Kongers to stand trial in China. And that's what brought the protesters out, Chris Chang journalist with independent Hong Kong free press we caught up with him earlier outside one of the city's metro stations. The protests yesterday was, perhaps the largest protests in Hong Kong history. So a March on Sunday with a million of turnout at very high, and if troll the exceeded everyone's expectation was there, something fundamentally different about this protest compared to those that happened in two thousand fourteen with the umbrella movement. I guess, regardless of how we think about the rela movement. There was deficient in society about whether to support that move than this tro tests against the extradition, Bill. It's quite a uniting factor is society because many people even including the conservative fisa sector, find difficulty in accepting, this Phil motza than agreed that there is a danger, even for the business community that they may be sent to China for trial. A lot of people who have idea never joined protests in Hong Kong, or grad, each gravity, any marches in Hong Kong had joined this protests on Sunday. What's the mood among protest leaders? I mean what what's their next step? This issue is moving very fast. It will be sent to let you say console Hong Kong's congress, so the speak. So moving onto the by no photons sages of the Bill on Wednesday. Today, the organizers of the March have another test saying that they will have a rally outside the legislative council. So every single meeting that the console would debate still, there are looming fresher for different sectors science to call for general strike, including people going to work of business. Stop running for that day. So this moving to us the direction of even wide scale of protests, is Chris how're you failing personally at this point having observed these over the years? I think a reason change in, in my own fitting is, I've seen a lot of my friends who are highly educated, who have very successful careers. They sought to want to look into ways to move out of Hong Kong because all the difficulties all the drop season on gone, and there is no way out of that. So the only way out is to actually move on, and that could be a reset thing because Hong Kong has been such a fortunate place for many years of all this talent development. And now that the Hong Kong government's way of governance of Hong Kong and Beijing government's position on how to rule Hong Kong has forces very group of talented people to actually think of leaving Hong Kong as very sad thing, Chris. Where are you right now? I'm outside Hong Kong island near the process site and. What does it look like they're today? I mean, the remnants of the protests from yesterday. The processes have left all clear out by the police officers around, midnight, the band that the us says, in English, no extradition, China. Many of them were left on the ground. Chris Chang is a journalist with the independent Hong Kong free press, when the U K handed Hong Kong back to China in one thousand nine hundred seven everyone agreed to an arrangement called one country two systems meaning for the next fifty years. Hong Kong hang onto its own laws, its own courts and its own civil liberties civil liberties that aren't available to people living in mainland China, except now, China looks to be chipping away at those freedoms, including as the world's Patrick win points out, freedom of speech, Hong Kong feels like very different place than Beijing. It's almost as if there's a magic barrier. When you go to Hong Kong, you can say things that you would never say standing on a public square in Beijing. You can pretty much say whatever you want, at least. That's the idea, I wouldn't want to test the integrity of that magic free speech barrier these days, but that is what a lot of people want to preserve. Now since Hong Kong went from British control back to Chinese control in nineteen ninety seven how has the city's relationship to mainland China change. I mean what have been the challenges people in Hong Kong are frustrated that there's more of an intrusion of the Mandarin spoken in schools, as opposed to Cantonese. They are frustrated with how much power and influence mainland. Chinese investors have over Hong Kong people in Hong Kong, generally would like to choose who's going to lead them in elections. Well, Beijing has interfered and said, no, you can only choose people that we filter. So we're going to filter out the most radical voices in the room or any voices that push for more autonomy. So the long game of China is erosion, they just keep picking away taking away picking away the rights and freedoms that make Hong Kong stink. How do people in Hong Kong view, their own local government, as opposed to the Beijing government? Well, if you are inclined to protest, you are worried that the Hong Kong government is completely under the influence of Beijing the government in Hong Kong, very often goes along with the wishes of Beijing. And again, what China is doing? Here is taking a very gradual approach, and just knocking off little rights and freedoms bit by bit year by year. It's not a scenario where tanks are gonna come rolling in, you know, from mainland China, it's not like that. It's just an erosion and the executive branch in Hong Kong is the administrator of that erosion. And so that's why a lot of people are extraordinarily frustrated with them right now. Patrick. There were tons of people on the streets yesterday in Hong Kong. What are they most afraid of about this new law? Well, you don't wanna be charged with a crime and China. China has a ninety nine percent conviction rates charged with something in China. You're very likely going to be punished perhaps, much more severely than you would be punished in Hong Kong. What people are worried about is that you could be charged with some sort of petty crime as a resident of Hong Kong and be swept into China. Hong Kong's executive branch said look, you guys are freaking out. This is not necessarily gonna cover free speech, and it's only going to cover crimes that have a penalty of more than seven years, well, in China, there was recently, a novelist who wrote some gay erotica. She got ten years in prison for that. Okay. That's something that would be totally fine in Hong Kong wouldn't get punished for at all. So people are worried that the, the creeping influence of China, China will just be able to reach into Hong Kong and pluck out, people who they see as problems people who are criticizing the current system. Patrick purchase yesterday came a week after that same park was filled with demonstrate. Commemorating the anniversary of Tiananmen Square. Do you see a connection between the two? I do. Because in the minds of people in Hong Kong who are prone to protest tinman represents big bad, China at its worst. And just so happened that the commemoration of that horrible atrocity in China really lined up with the protest about this proposed law in Hong Kong. So I think it really injected life into the protests. And I think it reminded people in Hong Kong of what the stakes are the world's Asia reporter Patrick win. Thanks a lot. Thanks, carol..

"Well, it begins really in Hong Kong and it begins with what became known as the umbrella movement, which was started off being called occupy central and that was the beginnings of popular resistance to what did indeed turned out to be creeping Chinese control of Hong Kong. So the fight was over whether the electorate in the forthcoming lection 's would be widened because Hong Kong has been managed democracy in with a lot of pressure for people's vote. And this was really Hong Kong saying to Beijing. You know, the agreement is one party to systems, and you are beginning to increase your system. This was a very young movement. It had altered supposing and keep the launch part of central district on Hong Kong island. He umbrellas came up because it was in the summer, and it rains in the summer. Also because it was said that umbrellas became popular because they offered some defense against tear gas which began to be used against the demonstrators in my experience number isn't much defense against the gas. But I think by then the umbrella and the images of colorful umbrellas and just come to symbolize movement, and they proved a really powerful symbol Xi Jinping came into it was that he happened to make a visit to Han in who bay in July twenty thirteen it was a rainy day and in his kind of man of the people image.
