"The kid going. Missus hardesty you like it. Waiting looking in my eyes. And i look at the kid and i knew what they want in like my looking at say do you like it. So that's what we have to even as adults which is sometimes not as easy but you. Yeah but you know. I think we are all that kid. Bright we are like talk to that kid and wants to be good enough and want approval and say hey look your work is just as good as anybody else's you like it. That's the only thing that matters. It doesn't have to hang on anybody else's wall accolades sit on anybody else's shelf but how many people walk into. And i i will confess. I have had moments of this. Because i am not an artist but you know like walk into the the museum of modern art right and see something like a mondrian painting ago exactly squares and i could do this do they exactly. Because i'm here to tell you. I have never sat down and tried to paint like that exactly. So it's pretty rich for me to go in and judge somebody else's stuff when i've never on it and right people say oh. I could write a book about this end. Then they are so if you have that alone regardless of the quality of the book or the painting or whatever is something to celebrate exactly. that's so true just to to finish it love it and then devan something else. And that's okay and just to give yourself permission to not be perfect and is still create and have fun and enjoy the process. Do you have anything that works for yourself on giving yourself permission not to be perfect Say no i just. I just know that doesn't really matter. All the perfection but perfection is stifling and it just makes its freeze so Yeah i am goofy. I'm silly i liked to for painting times. I have made some my nicest work with a mistake. When i thought i had blue and i put it on the paints on the canvas and it was green. I'm like that happened. And then it works out nicely so with writing to. It's just kind of enjoy the process you. When you're writing you can make your little happy place with unicorns. Whatever that makes you happy you know. I used to buy time to go. I'm going to sell this to give it away. And i just kept it because i was like whoa. I'm just lying myself. I like the unicorn. It's silly to glass unicorn. I still have it but Just find that. Inner child that Artist and make it happy..

"I've never done looking for cotton mouth. Nick benham never done that. But oh yeah watching telenovelas i love during that with my mom and my sisters. My brothers were not related to this telenovelas. That was those are fine memories So that's exciting. The drama was still on a belli's Say that there's some. There's some beach scenes. They're serious South beach party stuff so I yeah. I drew a lot about what i've experienced but also what i've loved to watch read things that have sparked joy that Just like this is exactly what i wanted to see so there. There's a party scene with lotus flowers floating in a pool. I just every time i see that. I think it's just it's beautiful. i love. i won't tell you too much about the love. The situation but writing. And i did introduce a character. Who was kind of a bad boy and at first knows writing it. I want it okay. She goes to the bad way. Obviously and that. I was writing it my more mature sites. I don't want her to. I really want her to just e with someone. That's right for her. So i i just kind of avoided the chaos of life and i just made her without tasting saying too much. But i just like. I don't me to do that. You don't need to have that drama times so you mentioned panthers before. I'm assuming that that means you are one. I can't be finished which avail. Floor i I did see that amazing image. Jk rolling how she has her outline. There's like a sheet that she does with its like really intense where she has every character or every faction and then. She writes down where they show up like. That's good because sometimes people can talk about something or person and you're like whoa man at the end of the book they mentioned like. Oh gosh i forgot to talk about mcgann so i. I kind of didn't do that at all because that was like super. Jk rollings brain but I did. I am made like an outline. I made different outlines for my visual brain. I made i outline with all the chapters. And i would put little nose and then i also made for like my other books. I would take a shot sheet of paper kind of like show. Tv show writing style. And i broke it like How they break stories. Because i i love that actually. And i'm actually writing scripts a little bit just playing with it because it's super fun and i do say three scenes and three points a little bit of for my novella so there are different ways like to outline and i do believe in outlining but if you're very visual it can be overwhelming. Sometimes if you're not an outline person so i make my outlined the way it works for me not like stuff. They learned about in high school. That made me scared. But by the roman numerals. Oh my gosh. I don't like that. Yeah so my outline is very visual. C talking about breaking for the the script style. And i'm not sure people are familiar with what that means. i've listened to this video from the maker of the creator of breaking bad news talking about how they break a scene. I could be getting strong but so blessed to have seen he says. What do you want to have happened in that scene. Or what do you want the viewers to see. They should be..

"Though it starts off with a bang and it's so fun. It was such a joy to write this book and so you grew up in south florida. Yes they did. A miami. And and you've set the book and south florida and i'm wondering to what extent is south florida character in the book. To what extent did it inspire the book so much so Her aunt has a diner there. Which is like a restaurant and it has a south. Florida food. They talk about passively salat cuban pastries which i love too much. I love him too much. She's a telenovela actress in a soap opera in spanish so that they're very south florida There it's everything's always very hot and humid low. Seen in the beginning on the book is gender. They're sweating and job hot humid and that it rains things all the time. Bear yes. The flavor is very soft florida and i mind. Dream is to see this on string. Because i think this would be so much fun. And it's so visual too and their law so they're destroyer. Riches and healer riches and. Juliet is half your rich and half destroyer witch. She's battling both sides of herself as she's Binding footing as a lead which interesting. I like the internal conflicts. I do too so yeah right. And then i mean if you're all good glenn says only in the wizard of oz for how long 'cause you really sit a unless they're good and they have something happens to them immediately and they just come. Yeah you have to do something otherwise. It's just like oh yay so in the process of writing. This book did you.

"But yeah it's it's a nice. It's nice when you can create a little community of writers asserts readers and writers as well and just find a happy home so when you say that they guide you what does that look like A guide may well see. I remember sending something where i didn't put the right link and they said yes. So it's nice like that I asked if they wanted me. Cheap I said i have a nice idea like a spin off and i said you think this would be good. And they said sure so. That's like another project in the future. But it's nice hearing feedback. That's really interesting. Yeah has anything that they've come back to you with really surprised you Let's see oh the fact that they were interested in beck's having her own series would be fun by i. I didn't know that people cared about. Beck's like i did because she is actually a villain in on the jade jade's ratings story. The delicate shapeshifts trilogy. She's a bill in in all three bucks. But i like her and i want to change things up and give her own story so i wasn't sure if people are gonna like that but i was surprised that they wanted that so that surprise me. Yeah i there's a fascination with villains don't you. I mean as a writer as a reader as a tv watcher. Whatever i think. I i don't know there's there's something about them. They were always run the risk of stealing the show because they do they can be so much more interesting. Because obviously you're protagonist is probably not kind of accident. So right there's something liberating about watching a villain be themselves fully. Yeah yeah did you feel like you had to explain. Beck's his backstory. When you started writing that i did a little bit but not too much and That's what's nice too because they're unapologetically themselves and they just come into scene brash and loud and Yeah i liked that. So i did a little bit of backstory on her but not too much which allows me to fill in more and kind of explain a little bit more like why she's like this but I know i don't know who said it but weisberg said that wise virgin this about dylan's villains. Don't think they're dylan's right. Yeah that's fair and you just remember that. Like cain and it's really centering ya and you know. I remember hearing an interview years ago. And i could have this wrong but i want to say that..

I was scared of also doing something that would make my creative flame diminish because the frustration and regret. My didn't wanna do that. Because you need to be free.

"And i was like oh so then i'd have to continue it so i learned how to learn some of the art of storytelling from students. And they're very wonderful teachers. So what age group were you teaching. I was teaching kindergarten pot at high school. Oh wow okay. Yeah yes the little ones will very frank quite frank. Yes yeah so. Did teaching art influence you. Aside from the storytelling to kill time did did these things kind of feed off of each other for you or are they completely separate They both helped me with creativity. Because you're as you're teaching as a parent also many times. I tell my son things and you know. It's like on teaching myself like well. Something doesn't work out. She bond going and it's like all upset note to self discipline. I need to do so. Yes as you're teaching the students and you say okay. It's okay to you made a mistake. Keep on going everybody or they would come up to times is an ass. Do you like it. And i'd say to them. It's not really important if i like it. You like it. Because i didn't want them to be I don't want. I wanted to train them just to go. Yeah he jaw. That's just not healthy honestly as To people as as creators anything so Yeah they definitely helped me. The concept of being an educator health A lot everything works out. It all helps on. The journey does and i'm. I'm so glad that you were the kind of teacher would say. Do you like it. Sadly 'cause i feel like that is so critical and is something that so many people get hung up on is yeah stop thinking about whether they like it. And they're so focused on winning will think or if someone will buy it or whatever i no no no no you gotta like it. I so true. Let it find its audience so true. It's very true about the process not the product and Yeah i did have a Person that class. I was teaching. I think i forgot who the person was. But when a child made an orange sky or whatever the color was the person said you dealt that well that's orange style. Have you ever seen that. And i quickly interject but will actually in are. You can do that. i wanted. I came to the child's defense immediately because it's very important to to do whatever he wants and to do. Whatever you thank god even things that are bizarre and so many so many of tv shows books and things that we love our people who take a chance or it was a mistake some of the recipes that we think are just normal actually started off as stakes which i told my students a lot in lies. Yeah and you know. If you've seen a sunset you had sky oh exactly exactly right exactly and one of the things that really inspired me Was i guess in two thousand nine..

How did you get your creative start where you a kid who was always doing wild imaginative things or did you sort of stumble into things later on. How did that go for you. Hey well i'm one of six kids and my mother is a singer. So i grew up just saying a lot of creativity we had haitian paintings on the walls It was something that i thought was natural. I used to love to draw. And then when i was going into high school i admitted to a special program called payback which is performing and visual arts center. Now it's new rules will the arts. I was able to kind of get focused with my creativity and learn. Learn that way. And just i don't know i guess channel my my energies that's cool so you started outdrawing. When did you start writing. I started writing. I do remember in college. I always loved English language arts. Growing up.

He said you know you could do anything you wanted to road. It's like to roach any seem very frustrated. Kind of like you just. I think that was like the end of our conversation kind of because he was like. But yeah i love. I've always loved writing And so then. I guess only when i went i went to dragon khan and there was an open call for them solidarity I took a chance. And i entered a story in there and showed me how to finish something as an adult not. Finish something in school You know you have to do this for grade. So that was wonderful. And then from there. I took that short story and i turned into novella. Nitra that novella series.

"Sure you stay you taken enough calories and taken enough hydration to keep it going now do you know the setup of the ultra light. How many stations. They're going to have. And you know our folks changing out. Shoes are runners changing out their shoes. Are they you know any of that. You given any kind of insight to that. I had a little bit of insight when i attended a trail race. A couple years ago called chase the coyote and they had a few different distances available so the one that iran was a twelve and a half kilometer one which is probably about. I wanna say eight to nine miles. Probably so they had twelve and a half kilometer also had a twenty five kilometer and they had a fifty kilometer one so the fifty would have been the same distance. That i'm doing and i've actually watched the rudders who did that distance you know coming in. I've seen that. They had like a little station setup up. And i've watched them see you know kind of do. They're almost like recovery things they did things like switched out water bottles. They also you know possibly change socks if something was chafing where they might have apply blister packs or things like that was really interesting to watch what some of them did when they return to their aid station. This specific race there was only. It was basically loops of twenty-five that they were doing the race. That i'm doing hopefully and willing is called sticks and stones and they are a five kilometer loop which will work out quite well. So i'll be reading that luke ten times and i won't have to carry as much which is very fortunate for for me and i'll be able to set up a little station so probably part of the experience will be working with my coach to understand what are some potential issues that come up when we're running the longer. And how do i deal with it in the middle of the race. Like what would. I need to pack and prepare so since it's a bit further out we haven't gotten to that discussion yet but for now it's just you know training the gut and logging mileage and building it up now. Is your coach. Gonna be there for your race or will you have a little team at your aid station to kind of get you kinda going and get the things you need and get the fuel and the hydration and then off you go. Yeah great question. I haven't really put too much thought into a team just yet to be honest with you. I think part of it is because we're not one hundred percent. Sure if the racist gonna go hoard uses the pandemic doesn't go forward. I still plan to run the distance. We do where. I live on berry with lucky to have a lot of trails locally as well and some of them are in boots on. My plan will be to have like my little aid station will be my car that i keep running loops and coming back to but you know hopefully with the race being in person it. My coach will be there which will be really great to have. Somebody cheering me on my children as well will definitely be there My daughter is interested in running as well so she will be doing. Definitely not the fifty. She'll probably be doing one of the shorter distances. Maybe about ten miles or so and my son who's not necessarily a runner but he does enjoy other outdoorsy activities. He could he will likely hike or walk. One of the shorter distances as well and because sticks and stones is at a conservation area there are opportunities for them to just wander around and enjoy the water at enjoyed being outside as well and not just Manning my station for me thinks about mom taking all of this on and all of her activities and conquering this ultra marathon. I'll my daughter thinks is awesome because she herself also will runner. What i think has been great..

"Do your ultra. Yeah absolutely so. I do train with a hydration pack. The kind that i use is actually a nathan brand recently upgraded. Mind before. I was using an an older style one and it was a bit thicker and i found that because i do tend to hot as well that it was really just another layer on me so very recently upgraded. I've gone back out to the marquette. Seeing what there is available out there have noticed a lot more lightweight opportunities as well so i've recently upgraded by the pack. I find those to be a lot easier to run in than with a a waist belt. It's just a personal preference. I know some people have asked me that before would y running. I said even a ten k. I would still prefer to wear a vest. Just because i'm into running with it now so if the comfortable place and there's lots of pockets so you know there's lots of little nooks and crannies i can stick little zip lock bags of potatoes and marshmallows and everything. I find the dryer foods like maybe the marshmallows. The pretzels that i can put in. You know maybe a handful of pretzels and then a few marshmallows and some gummy bears even so that's another food. I'm experimenting with an. I can just jot to myself and say you know eight. Gummy bears eat eight. Gummy bears. Or you know eat marshmallows. So if i had multiple servings i have a note that reminds me how much i need to consume at any given time. And you're going every hour. Is that what you're doing now. So i actually have to eat every half hour which is an interesting challenge. Because i've not really eaten that frequently. While i i run before especially not food so there is that level of when i began doing that it felt incredibly uncomfortable because i thought oh my goodness how am i going to chew and and run and eat and put all these things in my pockets when before gels was all i had so it was easy. Tear suck it up and drink some water and off you go but now it's having to force myself to slow down and kind of just take that time to eat the food and not try to rush through that process which makes sense actually for an ultra. Because we're not necessarily for me anyway. I know i will definitely not be like a world record setting brunner in any way capacity for me. It's more of just learning how to make be ultra an enjoyable experience and a lot.

What kind of responsibilities. Hold in that capacity some of the things that are a part of. It's strictly voluntary role. You do have to apply and in order be successful.

"Called the great canadian crossing which is a race that is hosted by the five peaks community and it's is four thousand eight hundred kilometers of mileage to cover within a year so in miles that is just shy about three thousand miles and in order to fulfill that or thousand eight hundred kilometers. You could run it. You can bike it. You can swim it you can also paddleboard it so any sort of forward movement so to speak You can incorporate those will all add up to your miles. And i actually just finished my roughly three thousand miles last week so very exciting. I was able to complete it in less than a year was a little nervous that i couldn't but i think it was a good type of challenge a good type of nervous. Yeah for sure well. Congratulations that's a huge accomplishment It is. I honestly didn't think i could do it specifically to start. That's precisely why. I signed up for it. There is some sort of thrill in knowing. You're not one hundred percent. Sure if you'll be able to do it but you know you're gonna try your hardest to complete it. And that's definitely what ended up happening but i do. Oh miles that was able to attribute to acquire over the winter to getting a coach and having a more structured training plan to get those miles and kilometers in basically. I don't think i could've done as well without that. Yeah for sure. How did weather affect you during training or does it affect you. That's a really great question. I'm more of a winter runner funny enough as it is. I enjoy being out during the cold. Because i find that overheat so easily the summer time like right now as the temperatures are picking up. I'm probably just the whiny est baby for her rubbing outside as much as i love being outside but like in the summer i prefer more to be on the water or hiking where shade and right now the thought of running outside in you know when the temperatures are thirty plus degrees celsius..

"Approval and the jam but you've been you have trained in open water at a corey and i think that is the coolest thing i've ever heard of. I mean i've never heard of that. No can you touch on what that kind of looks like fear training and what that resembles for like a real life traffic. Yeah definitely so. The quarry is actually owned by a traffic on club which is based out of. I believe the called caliban. And they're about an hour or so west from me and so they have negotiated. I guess with a company called james dick to use this piece of property to basically have whole bunch of water. I guess for open water swimming as a part of their training and what they offer to their athletes. I was very lucky last year because the swim team swim club that i was part of because of the pandemic everything shut down but one of the members who i knew she had mentioned to me that there is still an opportunity to swim even. If it's not the cool there. Is this a private membership with this quarry with the triathlon club and to definitely sign up for the seasonal membership. If i could. I looked into it and it looked like a wonderful fit. Because they didn't have not just a membership for someone who's a triathlete and wants to work with a coach or something. They also offer family pass type of opportunity so i can bring my children which is such an important part. I don't want them to feel like they're not a part of my training to share the things that i do with that so i would be at the quarry and i would be swimming in this open water and my children can get out their stand up paddle boarding or kayaking or you know just playing at the beach. It looks almost like a very small private beach. Nothing fancy of course but it does exactly what we need to do for for an open water swimming situation and found that..

China Sends 25 Warplanes Into Taiwan's Air Defense Zone, Taipei Says

"Is very far from unheard of for chinese military aircraft to buzzed the skies around the time on yesterday. However the people's liberation army air force stepped such provocations up a notch. Twenty-five chinese jets a record number into taiwan's air defense identification zone. This hefty squadron included eighteen of china's chengdu j ten fighters and four nuclear capable h six k bombers taiwan's air force scrambled their own planes to shoot the intruders off. But it seems reasonable to suppose that they will be back on. Joined with more on this by isabel hilton. Ceo at china dialogue isabelle twenty. Five aircraft is a fairly significant gesture by china. But this kind of stunt in itself isn't unusual is. How often do they do this. Well particularly this year. They'd been doing it a quite lot. They've been doing it. You know several times a week in recent times and its its military chest beating over fairly unpleasant kind I don't think it means that an invasion is imminent but it certainly it. It has a lot of advantages from the chinese perspective. It keeps the population on edge. It forces the china. The taiwanese air force to respond in some way they got so tired of scrambling a late last year that they decided that they would just monitor from the ground but again you know if you step the pressure up again then then scrambling has to happen. So it it. It's a long campaign of attrition and it's also testing the biden administration so there's a lot of probing testing and chest-beating beating happening at the moment.

You made the mistake in your first novel. Good gone bad of killing off your best character about. His name was streaker and he was the former cop who went to the dockside.

His brother and his brother is a cult. Jessop who is Pardon my new series. That i started.

How to Run Effective In-Person and Online Workshops with Dr. Isabeau Iqbal

"Welcome to episode number eighty of the ground blogger podcast. This is the podcast for helping them exchanged the world through online business helping you by giving you the tools and tips strategies. You need to build an online business around your research experience and your background around the change. You want to make in the world. I'm your host doctor Crisco. It is episode. We're doing interview on how to run an effective in person and online Workshop to do that. We have back on the podcast. Dr. Iqbal from he's the boat, and we're really excited get around the podcast. Dr. Iqbal. Thank you for coming back on. Thanks Chris for having me back and really happy to be able to have this conversation with you today suppose you have been listening to the last couple of weeks and months. We had a table on an episode 74 the podcast talking about starting a coaching business as an academic her background their her story about how she started her her business where she coaches ambitious perfectionist dead. And around the higher education space talk about her journey things like how she finds clients and just overall some ideas around how to build up a business as a coach some really important takeaways there were around focus on doing just that make sure you get the skills actually be able to build a business what you're doing. It's not just coaching people you have to do but you have to actually sell services and build up an infrastructure there as well with certification a lot of other important topics as well. I want to get Isabelle back on for a couple of reasons to talk about this process of online workshops. So reason number one is that Workshop facilitation. I'm not exactly sure why but maybe she can can point out but seems to be a place where a lot of academics start there entrepreneurship journey. I think they probably have some skill sets in this already and they start doing and finding a good at it and they kind of built this up as a home service offering it they can do at other universities. The second kind of reason is if you're doing one-on-one coaching like, you know all the coaches who had on the podcast for it started with then moving dead. More towards as many to one model moving more towards workshops where you can teach and coach and help multiple people at once seems to be a place that that coaches and academic coaches in particular seem to gravitate towards as well. So in this episode over and talk about why should you consider adding workshops to your business model and talk about what are some of the common key components around planning and effective workshop and delivering an effective Workshop or how how to keep paging aged and maybe even more importantly if you want to keep the business running keep an organized there's happy and what this does look like as we transition in the space over in today to online more online learning more online workshops more online events. So as always, you know, the transcripts of this podcast episode at gravatar.com. Eighty. That's 801 probably pull out a cheat sheet with tips on running and planning effective Workshop from this intervention download at that link as well. So Isabelle we covered your kind of story your backstory while you got in the business how you build your business over the last number of years and episode 74 taking this one will probably just jump right into why wage In your business. Do you include workshops as part of your your business model? Sure. Yeah. It's pretty much what you were saying just a few moments ago. So initially it was really because off I have experience and comfort and designing and facilitating workshops from my career as an educational developer at a university teaching Learning Center. And I really enjoy Sylhet ating. So it seemed like a natural place to a natural thing to to include also as I talked about in that previous conversation that we had. I was initially trained through a tool called the Clifton strengths assessment and that approach is really focused. Well, not only on individual strengths but also team's strengths and team collaboration. So it did seem also like a really good fit with with that approach and then of course in terms of Revenue wage So what you were saying just a few minutes ago again was around. I do the one on one coaching and then to have an offer where I could also offer request with groups. It helps me in terms of having more reach and more impact in in that way to that makes a lot of sense and I have seen this come up with folks are inside the self tanner Community people they worked with and coaching where you if you're doing one-on-one services and it doesn't have to be coaching. It could be website design. It could be any sort of service of that your your business office told there's a there's inherent maximum roof. You can only you know work so many hours in a week. Hopefully, it's less than than fifty sixty seventy. Eighty. If you're if you're doing things, you know the wage like to see and maybe less than forty or Thirty if you're really dialed-in and sure you can charge more but charging more is also a tough one cuz it's not, you know charging 30% more is pretty hard to do age. Turning sixty percent more is even harder to but the end of the day, how do you charge you know, ten times or a hundred times more it's hard to do on 121. You can really move into these other models. We can serve more people at one time exactly wage. Yeah, so someone's just getting started and they're thinking well, I I do have some skills and workshops. Like you said, I understand some of the tools and I'm interested expanding into this. I think we zoom out to sort of rain this, from what are the key components around planning and effective Workshop where the pieces that we we should dive into in the rest of this conversation. Yeah, because the planning is so crucial to say you are running effective workshops. So I have eight suggestions around planning effective workshops. And the first is to to learn more about your clients need so often I'll get a phone call or an email and it'll be a really vague requests. We'd like a workshop around strengths and that dog Tell me a lot. So one of the very first things I do is request a phone meeting where I can find a little bit more about what the client is is 1:15, and that is so so helpful find things about you know, who the participants are going to be their age their backgrounds their education, whether they know each other down there strangers. So those bits will really help with the with the planning and then another part around client needs is how do they want to work together? So some people want to be more involved and others don't and I think that it's really important to to know that up front because it will help ensure their satisfaction with with the process. So that's that's one piece and I'm not sure if I should pause if you have follow-up questions or questions continued.

At a Crossroads? China-India Nuclear Relations After the Border Clash

"We start the program tracking one of the most potentially SA- serious spot points globally the ongoing hostilities between the nuclear-armed countries, India and China earlier this week they discharged weapons that each other for the first time in forty five years as a four month standoff between their armed forces escalated into warning shots in the western Himalayas. The skirmishes worryingly reminiscent of the circumstances surrounding the beginning of a war between the two in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two. Yesterday. The foreign ministers of the two countries met in Russia in a bid to defuse the military standoff Jonah Slater New Delhi Bureau chief for The Washington Post and Isabel Hilton China dialogue join me on the line now. Thanks both for for joining us is about what was behind this most recent exchange of shots. That rather depends who you believe I mean one. Of the meeting that has taken place in Moscow, which has been some extent. Calming is that neither side will acknowledge any wrongdoing and indeed continue to blame the other. There is a very in general terms there isn't defined line of actual, control? The seem to be signs that the past three or four months across quite a a a length of it. So not just in one sector, China has been a pushing the actual you know situation on the ground by crossing the line of Control China, accuse his India doing the same thing in this most recent incidents and says that it had to fire shots in the ad to deter what was Indian aggression India has said over the repeated incidents over the past few months that China has advanced and then has not on a promises to retreat. So we now have quite an extended standoff which began in the in the West and sector. But has now extended to the eastern sector to what in your Natural Pradesh which to southern. Tibet. So it's a sustained standoff still during the what more do we know about the outcome of the meeting between the two men yesterday Well we know that they met for two and a half hours a lengthy meeting their first in person meetings since the crisis began Jason Curve India's foreign minister is a is a former ambassador to China. He has deep experience there. But in terms of outcomes, what we basically have is an agreement to continue talking it's not nothing but it's definitely not a breakthrough I mean Isabel do you think there's any real appetite for compromise and given China's current aggressive stance globally will one be trying to dial it down I think that I don't see very much appetite for compromise on either side we all you have is highly nationals governments which both. Set great store on territorial integrity and and then of course, you come to the sensitive point where the territories real defined and then you have a you know constant potential for confrontation. But if you add to that I mean what one thing that is very different from in in this border confrontation with other areas of conflict China like the South China Sea for example, where were you have because it's accessible and and territory marine territory that's used by lots of different kinds of people in people from from different countries, you can enact a conflict at a lower level if you like using fishing boats or or customs boats, and you don't actually have to use your main forces. But this is highly inaccessible territory. The only people who are out there really are our armed forces and they have increased. Both sides have increased the presence of their forces really dramatically in the last few months, and in the last few years, they have increased access to the border by building infrastructure building roads and railway building roads rather So you have the potential to mobilize both heavy weaponry and larger numbers of troops When you have a moment like this, do strategically, I would say that China is trying to discourage India from. Joining in a mall full blooded way any anti-chinese coalition organized by the United States so the has been quite a warm relationship between Modiin trump as we know, and and the question is how far India will take this because that could be a Catholic. And during this meeting, come about because the to happened to be in Moscow anyway or is Russia playing the piece Burqa. Well. Both of them would have been at this meeting, but it does seem that Russia is playing a little bit of a role of convener here as a country that. Ostensibly would like to see tensions reduce. It has constructive relationships with both countries there have been reports in the Indian media suggesting that I'm sorry that Russia was doing some quiet diplomacy behind the scenes earlier in this crisis but I think the these these two men obviously would have been there anyway just comes at a very. Sensitive, sensitive, and important time. It's about what's in it for? Would I guess it's less less difficulty in the neighborhood they do as we've heard have rush the Russians do have constructive relations Russia likes to be seen as a broker these days I mean the whole trajectory of Putin's kind of outward posture has been to assert Russia's important so to be able to mediate between a traditional friend India and. country. Rival with whom relations little complicate it China would greatly enhanced prestige. One of the difficulties is that what we know from the reorganization, for example, the Chinese military which is put sheeting. Very firmly, inconspicuously in command, we need to assume I think that decision is made about deployment of troops and our posture go very much to the top So you know without a signal from the tall, the foreign ministers of my decide couldn't actually resolve this. Yeah. How do you think this fits in with the the general foreign policy aims of India. I don't think expected crisis with China I. think that was not part of its. Foreign Policy Goals as Isabelle was speaking about no, India is. Wary of China's rise, it has been drawing closer to the United States and also to this grouping called the Quad, which includes the United States Japan and Australia this one of the interesting aspects about this crisis with China along the line of actual control is that India says at least that it's at a loss to understand why China is doing this it repeated that again today that. Shot, the tiny side has not provided a credible explanation for this deployment. Jay Shankar, the foreign minister a few days ago said repeated that India's is a little bit flummoxed here, and so if China is sending a message that it doesn't want India to draw closer to the United States, India's not really getting the message quite clearly So I think that's one of the strange parts about this entire episode, which is we don't India claims at least not really understand what China's motivations are for this. Quite significant deployment along the line of actual control which began in April and then Burst into actual skirmishes, skirmishes in May, and then the deadliest violence between the two countries and more than fifty years in June. I mean Isabel attorneys right WH- one can't really see what's in it for China I. Mean as you say, this is an area where there's really not very much. It's inaccessible the only people there are the soldiers. What's the point? I think the point is is partly to shore up she gene pins reputation at home is a vigorous defender of China's global position and Chinese sovereignty, and you might well argue that that sovereignty over a few miles of inaccessible mountain compass matter but they matter symbolically domestically in China. It also might be I mean, we've seen a passion of a very assertive behavior. Put it no more strongly from China pretty much since the coronavirus outbreak and a lot of you know if you look across the piece it what's been going on there had been provocations in around Taiwan with you with Chinese. Military flights crossing into Taiwanese airspace very recently and and we have you know I, think for the first time that I can recall in. Since the sixties we have on this board, we have confrontations in both the important western sector and the equally important eastern sector. Now, that's that's kind of unusual that does signal a much more firm intent to send a message even if it's not a message that India understand. So it may be a message that's being directed to the Chinese public that you know we can do this because we are bigger and stronger than India and we will continue to defend. China's position in the world.

China's Xi vows unceasing fight against Tibet separatism

"China's president has called for what's described as an impregnable fortress to stop separatism in Tibet Xi Jinping, speech, set out the country's policy direction intended to protect national unity, maintain stability, and educate the masses. Well, Isabel Hilton is the editor of China dialogue and has written extensively about Beijing's relationship with Tibet. Hello? Isabelle. Doing. Very. Well, thank you. Tell us what is this impregnable fortress. Well this is come out of the Communist Party Central Symposium on Tibet work, which is the you know the high level. It's the meeting that gathers together everyone who has anything to do with Tabet from security to economics to environment, and of course, the polit bureau is in attendance at the last one was five years ago. So it is quite important to understand the direction that things taking and I have to say it's not a particularly encouraging direction the the emphasis on a border security was not extensively publicized in China but I think that that is undoubtedly related to the continuing tensions with India, and we've seen a number of clashes along that border. But the other. Really important aspect of this statement is is really about hearts and minds, which has been a massive failure in terms of of Chinese occupation of Tibet and the the stress on patriotic education on the fact that monasteries must you know put put the party first and so on. All isses familiar but it's becoming more intense in terms of of of you know government propaganda and just simply failed over the years. So how does it intend to impose or bill this impregnable fortress to maintain not just stability but? Engage in those hearts and minds which which they find so important and what I think probably I'm sorry to say more repression it's. There is a relationship between what happens in Tibetan what happens in Xinjiang, which has lately had some more attention and but the body secretary who? Had A kinda panel up to consecutie system in Tibet then moved to Xinjiang to continue his work. So the security approach is very much the same and it is extremely tight security on on an absolute day to day level. So you know police boxes every few hundred yards kind of panopticon effect on on watching society for any kind of behavior that might be considered deviant. So that's one aspect of it and and the other oil done in the name of national security. and. Then the other aspect is the intense education and signification of Tibet. So it's been some years now since two Beden as a medium of instructions in schools was damaged and and you know there's heavy language pressure heavy cultural pressure on on Tibetans who are encouraged not to have a photographs of the delay in their homes but to her photographs of Xi. Jinping, instead to the the, it's really an an example of enhanced integration. Hitherto has been a policy in the People's Republic at least in name over SPEC for national minorities as they would call them. So Cultural Rights, language rights, and the idea that they could be in some sense autonomous and self governing. Now, that was never entirely implemented but at least it was official policy and that is now being abandoned really in favor of kind of. Han Chinese dominance in every aspect including culture and language, and how is that likely to be received in Tibet? Well. The evidence is that the more pressure the culture comes under in a way, the more people attached to it. So you know the most famous case was in nineteen eighty when when the reports from to bed to the center. Essentially said everyone's forgotten by the Dalai. Lama. They loved the Communist Party. It's all going swimmingly and it emboldened the central government to allow or to think about a visit from the delara sue the Dalai Lama sent. A representative. Group to inspect Tibet to see what conditions would like and as soon as rumors of these people's presence spread across to bet you thousands and thousands of people went to pay homage and his push notes into the hands and to weep and to go for the Dalai Lama. So you know the Chinese never been very good at reading. Tibetan sentiment and every time they criticized the Dalai Lama officially it sort of gives comfort to the Tibetans that. The Dalai Lama still matters and he still bad. So it's it's you know it's not a particularly helpful policy and the more that they cracked down on Tibet. The more Tibetan people feel more. They feel the difference and in a moment ago, you mentioned the fact that Tibet is stuck as well in terms of the relationship, the the very techy relationship that's being played out between India at the moment two degrees either side twenty used to bet. Well I think that this. That that's always I. Guess a problem you know the wasn't a border between India and China until the Chinese occupation of Tibet. So so now we have to Asian supervise and this border which is constantly disputed, which is unresolved and across which flow or manner of things including of course, people you know the flow of refugees to India from Tibet. has been a feature of the years the very large settlements of Tibetan refugees in India, which has given them pretty generous hospitality, the presence of the Dalai Lama in India. Then on the Indian side, you know there is anxiety about water supply because wall of. India's pretty much all of India's water supply comes from the Tibet Plateau, and there is constant fear in Indian security services that that the Chinese can somehow turn the top of which is unlikely but nevertheless it makes them deeply anxious. So there are any number of issues that that would need to be resolved in NFL comprehensive settlement. But at the moment you have to highly nationalistic governments each which is you postures vigorously over Tibet and I think that a settlement is not terribly likely Isabel. Indeed as ever for joining us on monocle twenty four, that was China dialogues is.

"But how do you think that you got that done? Where did that come from that ability to go snatch the basketball even against the larger players anytime at the game you could get that big rebound in your counted for that. Where did that come from? That's just wanting it more. In my opinion everybody can want it. But there's always a threshold for how much someone wants it so I think with rebounding of course yes. Timing is involved in things of that nature but I. I think it's definitely just. It's an asked me to want it more like. I can tell that times when I don't go rebound I'm like I should have gone like for cushioning. Always used to get on me for not offensive rebounding. There'd be times I'd just stand there but then whenever she did Hold me accountable. She Air I need you offensive. Rebound when I like intentionally thought about it and did it. I could get it so I think it's just like wanting and having resilience you're not going to get every single one because you know like this is not going to have been you know the ball bounces and a lot of places but I think if you do want it consistently you you can easily get like seven plus rebounds a game I think Of course there are a couple of things like high timing things of that nature like dexterity those things kind of new matter a bit. But I definitely think it's hard I think rebounding is definitely one of the biggest things that measured by heart and basketball absolutely and you can get buckets too. It's not that and one of the biggest things I think about is i. I didn't see every game you played I saw you know a good A good dozen of them and just always just always impressive but the UTSA GAME. This year was was fun to me in that. You know that you really weren't hunting your shot early in that game but then in the third quarter you go like nine of nine or eight of eight and scored eighteen points in it turns from a close game into a into a not so close game. What dictated whether or not you went after your shot in college whether just moments where you just said. Yeah I'm just I'm GonNa take this thing over did did did you. Just try? Always try to make the right basketball. Yeah I definitely think just tried to let the game come to me and not force. I definitely tried to create for others a lot more this year and I think doing that kind of made me not worry about A. What shot am I taking? Is this my shot things of that nature but I mean we don't play good games all the time. There's games where we just you know. Don't play as good as we should. And some games like that. I do know at times like I'll look at coach Langley. I know like hey you know like you need to take a little bit more shots. You know because nothing's really fallen you know just to try to get something to roll in there but in that. Utsa game I remember. I think my teammates. It was really shooting. Well the first half so I knew I was trying to get it to her a lot and she has really good court vision too so I had a lot of confidence in her. But then I think the second half I kinda just you know once you make one more ten becomes you. You just get really comfortable. That muscle memory comes really quick too so but I definitely think just having like a selfless mindset of trying to get others involved quick especially when you Are Pretty Confident. In the skills and talents you have I think elevating others I really helped put my mindset in the right place in order to I guess quote unquote takeover by needed to the second half or whenever. So that's kind of how my mindset was most the games? Can you look back on your career? This close to it and be like this was the best game I ever played. I remember it. And there's there's no doubt about it or do they just all kind of blend together at this point. I guess my question is what's the best game ever played. Can you come up with one? I mean best is hard because there's been a couple of games where I guess statistically I did really well but we lost definitely isn't in my best category where you're just feeling it and you're you know a and you know that you are doing just about everything at your optimal level. And maybe you didn't even win or maybe it was a game where you only shot at five times but but you you had nine assists or something like that. I'd lean more towards that because this is something that I tried to work on this year. I got better but of course I'm no Sabrina rescue. I would probably say there was one game early in the season. I didn't have many points. I think might have had like twelve points. Eleven rebounds and eight assists or something like that like flirting with a triple double but I think that game I had the most fun over had It was one of our preseason games. Who did we played? Not Maybe Nickel State Navy Nichols Nichols State. Maybe someone right after Nicol state but yeah I had a lot of fun Like this getting rebounded literally. Launching it for No drubel hitting it too. Nancy like no looks things of that nature I dislike. The passing was really. It was really flowing from that game that they might have been the really fun this year but of course a lot of the championship games were fun to absolutely. What's it like playing with Nancy at six foot nine? That's something that no almost. Nobody has the experience playing with you. Know obviously playing against 6-foot-9 is extremely difficult. What's it like with six foot nine and trying to get help get the best out of her? I mean she really gets a lot out of us too and she's just so self. I think people see I played with her since my sophomore year of high school. We've been together since then so I've known her for a long time. She's my roommate So I really know Nancy pretty well and I would honestly say like the S. blocks and things of that nature that she does look fun but people realize I think at times that she's she's blocking it when our man passes those on defense like things of that nature like he's very selfless in. I think that's what's amazing in the game because she'll literally block it not say anything you know like it's just like Dang like I need to do better on defense but you know she has your back regardless that's honestly probably one of the coolest things and then she's also competitor. She can be feisty at times I think she can really elevate our teams energy because of that. So it's always been fun to play. Of course it's nice. You know when a team like a team plays you. They think they can guard you. And then you can just lob it her for easy layup But she's also very skilled. She can pass it very well. She can dribble she can shoot. She can do a lot. She's she moved very well for someone that six nine so it's just been fun. She's literally a Chicote that I've been really happy that I've been able to play with from high school till college. Cheat Code is a good way to play at put it. Yeah I've seen your two older sisters that are in the WNBA play. I never got to see a Livia play. What kind of player was she? I know that she was going to be a starter. I guess that would have been your sophomore year and her junior year. She was starting early in the season. I think at the five spot before you guys got Nancy and obviously those those problems new knee problems. I assume ended up getting her in her career. What kind of player was shot? Actually Concussion Concussion. Counter okay okay. Sorry about that but What kind of player was she? And what do you guys think you could have done on the floor if you got that chance to do it again at rice the we ended up. Pepperdine. Yeah I mean. I got to play with her at Rice like every year. She played in the pre season and a little bit in the conference and then of course a head injury So that was not fun so I did get to. I got a little Playing with her throughout my time I rice and I mean she honestly out of all four of us she could shoot the best but she's also taller than me so she's definitely one of those stretch four players so that that was fun too because I think he did really well in our offense she honestly. We always make jokes because she played all the hard games. She played an every time he plays you played. Ucla she played all the big schools. And then like Stu hitting the head like right before conference started so like she hoped hard games and then of course like life came But Yeah No. She was a very very skilled player. I mean it's always fun to play with her. I think we could read each other easily court. Of course people always talk about sister telepathy No she's shooter She could defend really well. One through five so I think coach Langley loved that so we definitely utilize that when she was playing to. I'm in she's fast. Yeah it was definitely dislike of air. You can do it all type of player so it was fun to play with her for the time she was at Rice. Ron could tell the truth is going to be a big part of it. Had she'd been able to be on the floor so it's it's too bad that wasn't able to happen as much as as you guys wanted to and. I'm just curious what your plans are on the floor. Certainly you are a player that's undersized but at the same time you've gone to the USA trials. You've I think you certainly could play overseas once. This covert things done and then maybe even have a shot to to try to work your way on WNBA roster. I would I would guess. But but what's your plan? What do you want me? Also deciding glad options. I have options to decide about Wnba is a possibility. This year's well And then of course medical school. I've been accepted to schools so I know I have that as well as I'm still with my family trying to decide honestly this possibility. I can both because of the timing of things which is really awesome too. So yeah they'll be a lot of new information coming up soon wants my family. I debris but definitely these times have delayed it. Probably you started thinking about it a little bit more because that was going to be one of my other questions. How do you play pro ball and then go to med school at the same time? That seems like a lot if You know getting your pre med stuff out of the way and Playing Division One. Was that one thing that Pro Ball and med school is another first of all. Let's just. Let's just talk about med school in what you WanNa do? What kind of Specialty or are you thinking about what? What kind of doctor are you going to be one day honestly? I'm not really sure what my family is. Does anything medicine related or like in the medical field? So it's kind of a shot in the dark for me so I don't really know what specialty they say. A lot of beds students don't know go against I'm just keeping an open mind. I definitely think something involved with teamwork because of course I've liked that I feel like I thrive in those environments. But while I'm in bed school I'm GonNa do a dual degree whenever I do go and I'll get my Mba as well. Because I do like organizations in like executive functions of things like learning about that so maybe eventually I'll be able to like work as like it in healthcare administrator slash physician. So we'll see I definitely specialty was. I don't know I could see us navy as like a physician for professional sports teams something like that. Have you gotten ready to announce where you're going to school?.

"I'm your host. John Little and I have transitioned working fully from home. I'm I'm sure most of you are in the exact same position. but it's working from homes. Never really thought something. I thought I would do at this current position at Ten Eighty KRLD IN DALLAS. I'm a news anchor and so well before the tournaments were cancelled and kind of that big pivot point in our nation. We were talking about corona virus a lot and since then it's just been wall to wall about Kovic Nineteen and now I'm doing my My anchoring my news work from home from a walk in closet inside my house and it makes me wonder if this is twenty twenty. Five years ago in these steps were necessary. How he would have done it with you. Know connectivity just Ramping up to the Spot we are right now. Where it's so much easier to do your work remotely. How would we have done it back in the days of dial up just kind of makes you think we've got a really good show for you and shows lined up all throughout the week? I I just WanNa Promo tomorrow. We are going to be releasing of course are Mid Major Player of the year our Becky Hammon award winner and so as part of that. We're hoping to talk to our Becky Hammon award winner and put out a special podcast about that. Either late Tuesday night or early on Wednesday so be on the lookout for that. So that's a great one coming your way next week We've talked to Mike. Neighbors the head coach of the Arkansas razorbacks. Oh that is coming your way next Monday. Just a a lot to talk about in the world of women's basketball and a right now for this show we have had the chance to talk to Erica. Go McKay that is our feature conversation and that's coming up just momentarily but with cove in nineteen being so in the news one of my news colleagues who is a huge women's basketball fans. She also works for ten eighty. Krld and the Texas state network is Barbara Schwartz and. She had the opportunity to talk this week to. Isabel. Harrison the Dallas Wings forward who was playing overseas when covert nineteen really over took Italy at that point and she was playing in the northern part of Italy as well so I thought just for context. This is a great place to start and to hear what Isabel Harrison A. Wnba player went through as she was trying to play overseas. And then everything just got stopped. So let's hear a little bit of that. You played in Italy. And what was that like as this epidemic was starting to ramp up in Italy when it first started. It wasn't even honestly that bad. I think we had a few cases here and there and took like little precautions but by the time that I left on the thirteenth. It was literally everywhere. Shut down everything and that was within three weeks pain and how bad it is globally now with a high death rates day. So it's pretty scary. Did you guys at the time? Let's say Gimme a week or so before you left where they're still games and I read something the morning news. Talk about what practice was like. We had game against San Martino and they can't do the game. Maybe three hours before hand because there was like twenty new cases in that one day in that city so they didn't want anybody coming into Bologne so they cancelled the game fast forward a week and then we continue to practice We continue to take precaution. So when we would go into the gym we would have to take offer outside close in chains inside and wash your hands and then practice and after practice we've had to put our stuff in the bag and it was kind of like wow. This is really serious because more and more cases running fast forward than next week. We're playing in Palermo. And that's in the south of Italy. Stay basically were on a nervous about travel. Nobody was at the airport. Everybody had a mask and gloves. And you understand a certain amount of feet and even the ticket lady so it was Kinda crazy to see me food to Palermo. We've got in the head dinner that next morning shootaround got back then. They canceled the game. And then we found out that they closed the thirteen regions down in in our cities in the North Adelaide in Bologna. And we kind of have fear that we wouldn't be able to fly back If they started closing down so we couldn't get a flight that night but thank God we were able to the next morning and go back to Bologna. At least you know. Be Closer to home. I can't imagine being. I played in Naples the year before I can imagine being stuck in a city like we have nothing then back to Bologna and those four days are corn genes and practices came to the campaign for the entire week on went home. That Thursday those like getting a flight back to the United States. You know he was crazy. I knew it was going to be a situation where I was going to have to make sure were at least had a way on Wednesday night. When trump made that announcement about people being banned. If freak a lot of American players out a Lotta people were like asking. Can we even go home? And if we'RE GONNA BE STUCK. We have to be stuck in the country that we're not from WHO knows when this is. GonNa be over so a lot of panicking that whole week. I was keeping my own tickets. 'cause I just was getting nervous. So that night when he made the announcement tickets around twenty seven to three thousand dollars to get back again. The team is it going to pay this so Nafta inside your health or just sitting around waiting but in a country that is just so ravaged right now in the celtics like mine variety will. It was so hot John. I can't imagine how did you play any games in Italy. Where there was almost no one in the stands or did they do take precautions. Like that will all of a sudden you look around and it's like thirty people you're playing in front of it ever get to a point like that whereas they were. GonNa do that for our game. Ghezzi Martino but then they just ended up canceling. I think there were trying to take tiny steps. Because they didn't know how serious it was so they knew more that's when they canceled more. That makes sense. But I had a teammate playing Playing a game with no fans. Nobody played that day. But then I don't know how they claim they were going to do that with the NCWA here and then they decided soc- says now this is insane Helen have you been back and have you had to be quarantined since then for who? Now thank God. I'm almost done with quarantine while last days tomorrow. Actually isn't it lonely? But I can't tell you how much money is at ease knowing I'm close to my system here in Dallas and Wings Organization if they've been in touch with everybody or they tried to do anything for us just like. Hey we'll teleconference or you know. Get on a mobile and wave. Hi Great Calmly call yesterday. Actually any checked in the entire situation. Even when I landed. I think he knew how often are worth so he checked in yesterday and he's giving me an update on. I'm doing first and foremost you know. And who all the girls whose back in who? He's still trying to get back and still trying to get back and stuff so she had it yet. Everybody's update and I appreciate that mentioning. I want people to understand the seriousness of staying inside not necessarily for themselves but for the healthcare brokers and the people at the hospitals my mom she works at a retirement home too so they can't take visitors right now obviously because they're at risk as well she's also sixty four so just thinking of people like that. The reason why staying inside is so important and again none of this was funded like I had to come out of my pocket with all this. But it's okay knowing everybody's making an effort everybody's trying to do their part in it. I really appreciate even more for people who might not be able to fight this on their own if they do contract it and I hope you know for the Doug Nba. I I hope we can start on time because I look forward some especially. After this year we gained so much momentum in the last season playoff there was such an exciting time for Dougie so I hope it is but you know I think they're just taking things day by day two so and figuring out like we all are. That's Dallas wings forward Isabelle Harrison talking to Barbara Schwartz. You're on the her hoops stats podcast. And I appreciate Barbara for letting US use that Like I said Barbara Huge Dallas Wings. Fan and she's really hoping that the WNBA season gets up and going again and we don't have to miss out on On much more women's basketball in this country but that turns our attention to our feature conversation for this week. And that's with Erica. Go McKay so she is. The youngest of the four a Goo- McKay sisters who all play division. One College Basketball. Of course the oldest. Neko's been an MVP and the League who is an outstanding player in the League as well and then works for ESPN a Livia. Who was a fantastic player as well for pepperdine and then for rice but ran into some concussion in issues we'll hear from Erica and Erica. Who despite her size at five foot nine had one of the best abilities I've ever seen just to rebound and she was such a physical player. And I guess you would expect that With a name like a coup McKay their last name means warrior right so yeah she was a warrior and although she's a five nine guard I mean just her ability to create space with her strength inside the paint Double doubles with great regularity and It just you know. She'd have these Games where she'd have like twenty points. Seventeen rebounds I mean. She's a absolute beast of force and a two time conference USA Player of the year. Really interesting person and not just because she's a great basketball player but because of what she wants to do with her life after basketball and she's been getting a pre med degree while she was at rice and is going to go to med school and is going to have a tough time picking and maybe she won't even pick when it comes to med school versus basketball. And we get into that a little bit as well so something I've been wanting to do for a while. And so glad it finally came to fruition. Here's my conversation with.

"Offers an intense perspective on the issues and feelings most prescient in the poet's mind to that end Ellie Ellie Sada's latest collection towards the end challenges a range of concerns troubling our contemporary world today. So Ellie welcome back to three. Ci Thank you. Thanks for having me Nev- it. The title here. Seems a little ominous towards the end leading to the end of the world as we know it but the world as we know it I you know I think as I was. Finalizing the book Earlier in the year. And I'm thinking well. This is a bit of a melodramatic title. And then I turn on the news now. Actually I just step out at you know to the back yard and I can't breathe because of the ember storm you know. This is interesting learning new language. Courtesy of the Times. We live in so there. Is You know parts of Australia. Burning soon have another of the horse. Men of of the apocalypse disease being unleashed in Wuhan China. At exact same time we had you know trump trying desperately to start the Third World War by by killing that Iranian General I thought well the four horsemen are here so my title was in to a to an in some ways necessarily see the physical demise here. It's it's more for the values and concerns that we hold dear if I may I'll just read the first poem and we can discuss it in a little more detail. It's called the singer. This is how I croon my son singing Humpty dumpty a melody. He screams out in the absence of my song. I wasn't nearly as loud toddler. My voice vanished from the void of my father's car father's es sorry. I remember him having vaguely while driving wrapped up in his own world in mind. My son's medley moves onto Jack and Jill recalling the tune. I whistled yesterday. Did it ever exist? Did I ever have a voice? Even as an infant to seek to mit a whimper. Our member dad crying out the lyrics of an old Persian. Dirge wobbling from the speaker's not long after moving to Australia homesickness. Haunting his larynx like ghost howling in a haunted house. So much for parenting the loss of the music I never could muster. I'm here for my son's nursery rhymes to enact the presence unsung words now. My interpretation and this is the thing about poetry. It's open to all sorts of possibilities. The music the music of the child the music of the father and the music of your father and your music seems to get lost in there somewhere and your voice. Because there's your father recollecting purge at the music is a wider connect with these past life your son Humpty Dumpty Jack and Jill vs the medleys all Utah of the future. So but this is my interpretation. But I'm just wondering if that coincides with your intention but also then the question Your Voice. Your music Great I just want to say that you read it very well and I think I would like you to do all my readings from here on if that's okay look into. I guess I wouldn't call it an ironing. It's too weak word but I guess the contradiction is that it's actually written in my voice. The whole poem is actually in my voice. It's a little bit like Plato in the Republic. Saying all this nasty things about art but the Republicans written as a play with characters. So you know there's that sort of again i. I guess this is paradox. I guess is the word so so here is a Paul supporters. You know saying I don't have a voice but it's actually nothing but the poet's voice I think that that's sort of the lost there and it's something that identify in the rest of the collection is not so much for voice of personal you know emotional autobiographical identity. But one of something deeper something more more meaningful which are identified to be the voice of universal human subjectivity. Now that's one of the oldest things that poets tried to do scene at a time of the great epic poets. They want. I wanted to speak on behalf of humanity. Now this is something. A modern poetry mob has certainly rejected strongly beginning with romanticism. Which says look you know. It's just you the lyric I expressing your feelings. All the way to sort of like postmodernism and which says the lyric is bad but any mention of we is also not okay. Only he only express the immediacy of language. And that's all you ever do and I kind of feel like well. I don't I mean I I mean that's a tall these traditions but the quest that I guess I felt as I was putting the poems in this book together on a road some additional poems and arranged upon where particular wide at Kinda tells of sort of a story and is not so much about finding my personal voice. You know how do I how do I express myself? But it's about well. What is the voice? That's is needed for our times. And I think that's the kind of the big universal question which is perhaps even a political question. Wouldn't you raise some very mighty topics vertical philosophical social There's one called saga the more obscure and undesirable the more palatable. Ice Scowl still bothers me. And she's been dead for at least a decade. Her husband comically defendant. A downtrodden man wants a Communist. How much more fascinating radical with? My grandparents emigres escaping style and coming to Iran to found a trotskyite cell instead of Banal Matriarch and dull ethics patriarch immersed in gossip and religion. As a child. I hated any a few things more than being left alone with him. He once believed in the dictatorship of the proletariat when he died. I couldn't some in a single tear from my added on to his grandson. He'd being so simple meaningless as for Anna perhaps not really possible that she migrated as a teenage girl from Baku to Iran for more exceptional reason than giving birth to a son. Who'd made a woman who didn't give birth to me? Jeans are poor substitute for the fable of revolutions that universal family. Thank you but this notion of needing a viable needing a sag that's momentous and yet the irony or the opposite is the sort of mundane Mundane missive life Yeah totally I mean. I think you know this is my third book of poems. I kind of exhausted. That's sort of like Again reflection on the personal and familial and the mundane I know. That's what a lot of poets do and they do. Well you know since I mean who's to say that William Williams was wrong to talk about her red wheelbarrow on K. Good not yourself that and I've done that but I kind of feel like especially the Times though was writing this collection of putting it together and I kind of begins around the time that I live into by and this is two thousand and eight and I see the global financial crisis at that really impacts me and I feel like perhaps there is a tradition of poetry that is much more easily impacted by what's happening in the world by the economic social and political. Then there are other traditions. You know the the great sort of I mean this is this is again. It is also paradoxical thing we think about romanticism. We think well. It's the poetry of you know some some English Dandy wandering around and looking at daffodils. Okay it's that but it is also the poetry of the same Dandy as a young person going to be a part of the French Revolution. So so you know that sort of again. I feel like there is a a traditional poetry. That is more public. That is more We can talk about its political. Buddy and what what sense of the word is as as people listening to this and listening to your excellent readings of my poems that. I'm not a preachy person.

Raising Two Children with Muscular Dystrophy

"Today I'm talking to a woman we're calling audrey. She's thirty two and lives in Washington state with her husband and two sons last year just days after giving birth to her second child. She found out that both her baby and her two year old had inherited a condition called muscular dystrophy. It's a disease. That's not obvious at birth but over time it gets in the way of muscle development leaving many children unable to walk walk and some with severe heart problems. Audrey was familiar with the disease because her half brother also has it but she didn't realize until recently that she herself could pass this gene enter children five months later. Audrey has come in to talk with me about living with this new reality. She's struggling Glenn with intense feelings of guilt about passing this condition onto her boys. I start by asking her what it was like to learn about her brother's diagnosis. We didn't know anything was wrong with him until probably around the time he was ten or so he started walking. Funny any And then he And my mom went to visit my sister one time when he was probably twelve my sister at at this point was fresh out of medical school. She was a resident and she noticed that he used his hands. When he would go to stand up I think most people we don't think about it but when we go to stand up plant our feet and rise without using our and maybe a little bit for support but my brother had to bear both hands of weight onto the sides of his this chair and sort of jut himself forward and lift himself up into a standing position and my sister said that it's not normal so he did the geneticist and he was tested for muscular dystrophy and they found a deletion in his gene for go dystrophy? And I remember for exactly where I was found out that my brother. Where were you? I was on my college campus and My sister called me and she told me we got the news back. Genetic results say that my brother has muscular dystrophy. We weren't clear on what type yet But but I just remember crumbling to the ground I mean I literally fell to my knees in the middle of campus like on the grass and just started bawling because we didn't know what that meant. I mean we didn't know that mean he's GonNa die. He was thirteen. You know like like he's just a kid home. They said he has this in. My sister said Mom's going to be tested as a carrier. If she's a carrier then she could pass it onto all of her kids and then we will need to be tested and so I said okay. We'll just let me know what I need to do. And the next thing I remember was that she just told me. We're in the clear. Mom doesn't have the disease. She's not a carrier or none of us need to be tested sergeant of don't worry about it. Yep Yep the ones. I don't remember asking more questions. I don't remember being more curious than that. I just remember saying my sister's a Dr. They're working with the geneticist geneticists. Tested my mom and it just made sense because she and I were healthy. My older brother was healthy We just were convinced that this was the science. I didn't know that there is any other chance for anything else. So ten years later you're pregnant. Dragnet was it a prepregnancy conversation. Or you're what you're already pregnant when you talked about genetic screening with your doctor. I was already pregnant or already i. Yeah the thought never entered my my mind by they did. They did the intake. They asked Do you have any genetic diseases in your family. And I said yes. My brother has muscular dystrophy Fi. But my mother was found not be a carrier so They didn't they just like okay. Great they just moved on from that so they said so. You don't need any further screening right. Yeah and then two weeks postpartum for the second for my second son things were going. According to plan and my sister Texted me one day and she said we need to talk and how many weeks was the baby he I was two weeks old instantly. My mind was just searching for what it could possibly be I've got two week old in my arms and she sits on the couch and she says they just like right now. There's a pit my stomach just trying to put myself back in. The spot is the worst moment in in my life. She said my son her seven year old has muscular dystrophy. And it's the same type as brother. The exact same deletion and It's like another world experience. who was just like? I've time froze and I didn't even think about myself 'cause the next thing that she said I said I'm so sorry and I burst into tears and it was just like it didn't even connect the dots what she said next. She said I'm a carrier. It turns out what mom has is a very rare form where the deletion has happened in her eggs. Only and that's why she didn't test positive as a carrier she she said you could be a carrier and this only exhibits and sons and you could have passed it on to your boys and there's nothing to prepare you for that feeling when you feel like someone has pink punch you in lungs and like all the air escapes so I just. There's a blood test that you can do to measure the CK PK levels which are like the protein that could leach into the blood. And if it's high I mean there's a chance that you have like a muscle disease and so I made an appointment the following. Windy a on a Tuesday with Just our primary care physician so We took the two week old and the two and a half year old to this appointment. Went and Was the longest wait of our lives. I mean there is not a window in the room we were just sitting there like kind of shaking nervous and the doctor walked into the room. We saw the Base every new interim stapled up there. CK levels and she pulled up the baby. I it's two-weeks-old in his city at my feet. And she said Said Mrs Level Isabelle's shouldn't be about two fifty and she pulled up a two and a half year old His level is eight thousand.

Can we inherit trauma from our ancestors?

"We have Andrew Curry. He's a journalist based in Berlin and this week he wrote on inherited trauma. I Andrew Okay so this is about be genetics. It's been around a long time but it's kind of morphing in its definition. Can you give us the latest on that different. People mean different things when they talk about epigenetics with the the basic concept is there are ways in which organisms inherit traits that are maybe not genetic so we have DNA the strict genetic code but increasingly scientists are finding other ways in which traits are passed down through generations and they're trying to figure out what the exact mechanisms are and some organisms. It's really easy and the more complicated the organism that trickier it is figure out how these things are passed on outside of the genetic code <hes> so for example some of the EPA genetic mechanisms might involve modifications to DNA or it might be a different set of molecules altogether that are being inherited through the cells that make up the offspring yes so so it's all modifications a two D. N. A. in the thorough lots of different kinds of proteins in the cell that help when the D._n._a. is telling the cell what proteins to make how to develop and their different ways that these small proteins can signal signal the cell to read more or less off of the genetic code or can turn off gene so to speak so that certain traits aren't passed on or certain traits are passed on in amplified ways. You know it's not something that's in the the D._N._A.. itself it's more things that affect how the cell reads the D._N._A.. Right at the very moment that the cell I divides now that's one of millions of subsequent divisions. If you have a tiny impact after the very beginning right it can have a massive consequence down the loan. Let's talk about when epigenetics this different form of inheritance. I got linked to the idea of trauma. What are some of the early examples of those lakes people started looking at how the environment chain diet exposure to extreme colds or exposure to high level of chemicals could affect what was inherited and then probably about fifteen twenty years ago some researchers? Started looking or noticing other effects during experiments and one researcher in particular who I spoke with Isabelle Swing. She's at the University of Zurich and E.. T. H.. Eric created a mouse model because she wanted to study borderline personality personality disorder and so she was traumatizing baby mice by separating them from their mother at unpredictable intervals and then she noticed that the offspring of those baby mice often hadn't same behavioral symptoms of trauma that the parents Prince two and sometimes those behavioral symptoms went on for several generations. The idea here is that it's not just physical deprivation of food or exposure to a lot of coal. It's there's something about the psychology or you know emotional states of the the mice that are being passed down the ideas that the stress of trauma the stress of being separated from from your parents the stress of traumatic childhood you could be with your parents. Your parents could be neglectful. Those levels of stress caused chemical changes in your body that then affect how your d._n._A. is encoded and that those changes can be so powerful. They're passed on even to your offspring that didn't directly experience trauma right so this this researcher that you mentioned she has looked at this for generations and generations of mice she does some experiments where she's gone out five generations and she still sees behavior in the offspring of traumatize mice that she doesn't see see in control mice and that's even when she does the separation but then like the children are the children of the children have been exposed to separation from a parent. This is kind of the crux of the the question that's that was a challenge challenge for her in terms of the experimental design and it's been one of the main criticisms when people look at humans is really hard to separate what is EPA genetic trauma what is sort of biologically transmitted and what is just the stress yes of living with a parent that has been traumatised because your parents are that are part of your environment so these kids environmental effects exactly so how she the way she controlled for that is she only studied the mail so she would traumatize is male mice and then breed them with females but take the males out but the females the mothers of the subsequent generations hadn't been traumatized so there was no bad parenting so to speak and yet she still found differences teams in the mouth behavior so this is all behaviors you can you know judge based on that that something is being inherited but the biological mechanism is is still is still pretty far away from being understood in mice and in other organisms they've also so found changes in sperm and blood and other tissues of things called small non coding Arnaiz which are these things that help the body re- D._N._A.. And this small all non coding are in a in a traumatized mouse or David looked at traumatize. People is different in specific ways than in non traumatize people okay so there is some and those those are passed down subsequent generations yet outing sees changes in the Arnaiz later as well. The big question is how does it get from for example the blood of the parent to the sperm of the child and later than to the brain of child let alone. Alone the child's child that sort of that whole middle bit is what is still really unclear. Let's turn to the human here for a minute. One of the first places this was talked about was with respect to the Holocaust so can you talk about what what the research has shown with respect to Holocaust survivors a few years ago a researcher named Rachel Yehuda looked at the children of Holocaust survivors and found that they had higher levels of depression but also lower levels of specific stress hormones and different kinds of EPA genetic markers called D._N._a.. methylation than people whose parents had been born in the U._S.. <hes> from sort of similar ages in cohorts and argued that this could be evidence of EPA genetic trauma but that study was criticized at the time for the reasons that that I mentioned earlier you know a lot of people said well. It makes sense intuitively that if your parents survived the Holocaust they might behave differently at home that might be stressful in a different way and so that is solid enough evidence of this biological mechanism that they found in mice. There is an ongoing project that you talked about with <hes> children in an orphanage. How are they looking at that situation and asking questions about EPI genetic inheritance? It's really hard in humans to do ethical L. experiments over multiple generations so basically what they're doing right now is looking at humans who have been traumatized to see if they have changes in these EPA genetic marks and then using those to design mouse studies to understand how that might be carried across multiple generations and in the Pakistan example. This is now orphanage. This is the orphanage in Pakistan so a researcher WHO's part of Isabel Might Matsui's lab is working with orphans in Pakistan whose fathers have died and they were forcibly separated from their mothers because their mothers weren't able to earn enough money to support them and they're put in orphanages which they argue is fairly close to their mouse model that had how they're separated from the mother as children and they see different levels of these are in these kids blood and they're using those kids as sort of a starting point to then design better mouse experiments to understand how that it might be transmitted through different generations but to do a human experiment you would have to look at those kids kids and follow refer multiple generations and so for a whole range of reasons. It's extremely difficult coulter controlled intervention experiments in humans right. We should point out that the children in the orphanage are there's an intention from the people taking care of them to make sure that they're not traumatized. Yeah I mean this is a situation. The already happened this was not they didn't separate them from their mothers for the purpose of the experiment of course and they're being given great care they go to the same schools. This is actually another interesting part of the experiment they go to the same schools as local kids. It's who still live with their parents so they're also looking at the local kids who still live with their parents to see if there are differences and it's voluntary. These kids get good care New York's fridges by there still something about this experience that they. I went through that is really difficult seems to have biological backs. I WanNa ask you what it means what we should do about it but I feel that the really big question you know it's it's a great question. <hes> <hes> I think one of the most hopeful things to come out of the story for me was again something that seems sort of intuitive but has been lost a lot in the discussion of epigenetics because I think a lot of people here this idea that Oh my my grandparents parents were traumatized and therefore have this unavoidable legacy of pain right but there have been some early experiments again in mice where if you intervene with basically sort of happy cages they call them enriched environments governments. You can reverse this biological process. Yeah we actually had I think we had a segment on happiness in in mice and rats and how giving them things to do and making them comfortable in their environment can yeah it can change the way experiments turn out yeah and so one of the arguments that several the researchers made is rather than looking at this as a sort of a stigma and a mark we should maybe you know if we can identify by these things use them to identify people who will benefit from therapy or maybe we should just this is where it's sort of intuitive. Maybe we should just give all children in which are yeah and that this is not <hes> an unavoidable burden but something that we can look at as reversible and that we should be looking at it as reversible not something that we should be working towards.

Genetically Modified Viruses Help Save A Patient With A 'Superbug' Infection

"For the first time. Scientists have used genetically modified viruses to treat a patient fighting a life threatening superbug infection NPR health correspondent, rob Stein. Has the story is it bell. Cornell Holdaway was born with a lung disease called cystic fibrosis when she was fifteen a nasty infection started spreading through our body after she got a double lung transplant in London. Nothing could help her not antibody. Nothing. Her mom, JoAnn says the doctors told her there was no hope devastated to be told. You know, we could well be burying all child was just anyone has a child and never expects to have to bury them this this selves. But then is false doctors decided to try something out of the box therapies called Phages their natural enemies of bacteria. So the doctors found Graham hatful, he's an expert on phases at the university of Pittsburgh using genetic approaches with genome engineering were able to assemble this collection of three Phages that we could then combine tile to use the treatment, they know infect the kill efficiently. People have been treated with Phages before with mixed results. But no one had ever tried infusing genetically modified Phages into someone's body. It's kind of a scary thing to go in and administer treatment. Like this full, which we're completely on new ground. We don't know what to expect. Isabelle's doctor started infusing about a billion Phages into her body twice a day and held their breath. There's lots of things to worry about. And so the very first thing was, you know, does something does anything bad happen. But nothing did. In fact, Isabel started to recover she got stronger and stronger and Isabel who's now seventeen is living in almost completely normal life driving lessons. A school making fake city pool. God ning. No. Now, doctors aren't sure exactly how the Phages might have worked and is about is in cured. She still needs to get fade infusions every day. But the infection appears at least to be under control. I think it's amazing. It kind of shows there is completely. No limit. Until they can come up with really her. Mom, agrees them to be able to just have a little fiddle around with these Phages moins blowing valley when you think about it. Stephanie drafty studies Phages at the university of California San Diego. This is actually a historic moment. Fades therapy, seems to be the most promising alternative to anti-biotics that's on the scene. And this is the first time that genetically engineered fade has been used to successfully treat a superbug infection. Anna human being so strategy and hatfill hope this is just the beginning. What can we do for example to extend this to other types of diseases? The most obvious one is closest which is caused by a related bacterium, and that causes a lot of disease, and that's across the world each year and this very prevalent, drug resistant, strains that are very hard to treat. Now, this is just one case. And a lot more research is needed to see how well phases, including genetically engineered Phages really work, and if they're safe, but with superbugs on the rise and biotic losing their power. Researchers hope Phages could help save more

Isabelle Huppert and Chloe Grace Moretz on their new movie 'Greta'

"Welcome to popcorn where I tell you. What's happening at the movies? And if you want to go to a movie feel suspense little terror. Also laugh also just have a really good time. Then you see, Greta and lucky for me and all of you. I've got the two stars. Right here is about pair. Who is Greta and Coa grace Murat's who's not. Now, I'm shocked to of you did not bring handbags. Now, it's a shame. I wanted to see what would be in to do this. Can you set up a little bit about what Greta is about without spoiling everything for everybody? Grad is the story of. Two women young women and myself, and and and Guerra is is not a really nice person. She's thirty faced person. Indeed. And. And she liked to attract for a beautiful and and weak young woman in her space. And and she likes to do things that I hope nobody thinks example in her apart from western screen. When you played several roles like that where. Yes nut to to this point. No, she's not. This point. I wouldn't do it. And you grace are the innocent the naive. Yes. Yes. Yeah. I mean, it was it was a wonderful experience building, our our relationship onscreen. And obviously, of course, offscreen, but I think we have such a nice time building that love relationship in the beginning. And then to watch it decay in fall apart in the, you know, the psychosis takeover was it was really fun to shoot. But also, it was difficult really intense at times stay in character. Doing this. I think it's really difficult for Chloe. Sometimes. Giving Riyadh time. And and and myself, you know, I mean, the most horrible things I was doing the most. Lisera? But it was for me. But it wasn't to do to Neil Jordan's vision and aging I mean, the movie's really as you said, you know, is it's as horrible as it is. It's a lot of fun because there was such a great some humor in it all the time. And it's it's and it adds to the to the of balance into misery to the female. So this humor, and he's being funny. It's very disturbing. I think I think in the beginning, I was kind of liking it. So you see? Yeah. There was a moment where that is. And I think I can talk about that premise because I brought up the hand back. Right. You leave him back on the subway in New York. Even though this movie was shot in Ireland. Looks like subway to me. I guess it's Neil Jordan just wanted to be home. You wanted to be an Ireland, and you would pick it up or somebody would pick it up and return it to you. Because her. Name and address would been there. I keep thinking as a New Yorker that most New Yorkers would say, I'm gonna take it sell it on EBay, you know, but you are so sweet sweet girl from Massachusetts is just freshly moved this city, and it swallows her whole, Greta Greta had Greta takes her in. Would you both had experienced in playing people who hey, especially you your carry your hit girl and kick ass, you you played different roles. That's what I love about both of this impossible to type cast you when she think, oh, you can do this you just change everything up. So you were saying before that you can have fun. How did you have fun on this movie with all this suspense going way? We had fun because you know, I think doing the movie as you do it, you know, the devices, and you know, the tricks and so and being an actress is not the same as being spectator. You know, I know it because I am speaking to myself. So I mean you react and you are scared or disturb. Very different than when you went actually when you're actor just have fun doing that. Fingered and things like this. I don't onto nvr what's happening. So it's fun. You know, it's just it's just doing it. You know? And that's all there was a quote from you want and probably never said it. But anyway, I liked it. So I'll repeat it that. It was the acting was away to workout ones insanity. Yes. Yes. And also watch movies away of acting twins insanity. I think that's what movies are made for and books and everything that that, you know, make your imagination travel. It's very healthy. The whole Dewey twitching the screen or acting in Phelan for real that's for sure. Do you feel that way? Most definitely, you know, I think I've had the opportunity over the years as a kid to grow up acting and using it as as much, you know, more of an outlet than anything to express, my feelings and learn a lot about my own emotional, compass, but it's, you know, it's interesting to to act out these wild moments in movie, sometimes that are just so, you know, off the walls that you would never be able to achieve in your life. Hopefully, if you are of a sane mind. So yeah, it's incredibly therapeutic. You both started in this business. Really young right. Oh, she started younger that I you. What were you? No, I was seven. A bit more. More. What does that do t you when you begin so early in a business, even if you're I think it was really begin? You know, when you are an actor whenever you do actually, and, but especially doing movies, I think it's really the art of doing it for the first time by definition, you know, you work on unknown material, you know, unknown dialogues stories, and and and meeting director for the first time and him having him imagining his staging is always some it's the art of the of the first time and of the present moment. So I think it makes everybody even in that respect. And you don't feel like you repeat yourself or that you can shrive on on on knowing things before on, you know, you just very fresh in a way. Well, yeah, that's the collaboration process, but one about did you ever feel you miss. St- out on your childhood. By no means. No, I still with me. Anyway. So. You know, I think that's something. You carry all your life, isn't it? But she has it, you know, she can certainly took buried more. You didn't feel that you missed something or being with your friends when you were quite on the contrary, I think for me, I I learned tenfold what you know. I could've learned just being in school. You know, I think I was able to do my schooling and stuff on set. And I was around such amazing people from young age that I felt you know, really very much. So that I'm marinated in a in a situation, which really harbored my artistic ability and allowed me to grow in ways that I I don't think I could have an different system. So for me, it was it was a treasure. It was a gift. Yeah.
