A Closer Look at Sundar Pichai: From Middle Class Indian Upbringing to Google's Head Honcho
"Google and its parent company alphabet on the precipice of several major challenges regulators are expected to file antitrust lawsuits as early as this month and other example some faith company isn't as innovative as it used to be. A CEO of alphabet sooner Pechanga will play a key role in how the company navigates the headwinds, and while Pichai, is not nearly as in the spotlight as the other tech leaders. He's already had a long history Google, and by taking a look back, we can try and get some clues about how he might move the company forward a reporter Copeland joins us with an inside look rob. Thanks for joining me. Thank you. So, at the tech hearing before the House antitrust subcommittee earlier, this year Pichai himself as an immigrant sort of the picture of the American dream. And wonder if you could start by telling us more about the Chinese upbringing shore so Definitely outlier in many ways in Silicon Valley perhaps the most famous way that he stands out is that he was born in. India. So he grew up middle-class for India but not necessarily add western standards. He famously talks about growing up and getting in his first. Rotary phone. He is in such an older guy that the technology was just a lot less developed there. So he speaks frequently about the connection that he feels to technology and the knowledge that new technology can really change someone's life. So pettah eventually came to the US for Grad School. How do you find his Google? He worked relatively ordinary corp jobs until he joined Google right after its IPO google was not the Google that it is today it really was just a search engine. Quickly impresses people for his ability to one build consensus, which is true to this day, but also get the job done his first major job at Google. toolbar product. So before there was chrome there actually was an add on on your browser to search google. So his job was to convince companies like Dell when they sold you a laptop to have an automatic google search bar on there. So he's moved through the ranks since then becoming CEO of Google and then last year taking over as alphabet. CEO How did he make his way up the ladder? What's so remarkable is he's been at Google for sixteen years and we even though we're the Wall Street Journal have never done a full profile of him. So a big part of my task for the last few months was really unpacking who he is and how he got to this position and what really emerges is that Google was a place and still is a place with big personalities people who scream at each other people who say we should bet the farm on this or that and what sooner sort of did. was stay in the background, but he was also very careful that whatever he did it worked starting with toolbar but that extends to chrome the browser which he co lead and is now by far the most used web browser one of the big reveals of this reporting for me was that he's a very strategic person. It's not an accident that he stayed in the background for instance, someone who used to report to him. Told me early on in a meeting with with Larry? Page. who was CEO of Google before soon Dr Sooner made sure that they never disagreed in front of Larry. He really didn't want anyone to see any cracks and this also emerges in a lot of the people I spoke to some of whom sooner himself suggested that I speak to. But then when I got on the phone with them, they didn't seem to know him personally well. So he he keeps it very close to the vest. So it sounds like he's pretty deft at navigating the company politics now that he's in the top spot. What's he known for as a leader? So to a man to a woman ever and I spoke to said that sooner has a tendency in the middle of meetings to stand up and begin pacing in the middle of your presentation. He won't say anything necessarily sign that he likes or doesn't like it. It's just signed that he's thinking. So you can imagine people have spent weeks preparing for the CEO and he leaps up in the middle just starts pacing it can be quite disarming frankly this comes back to the criticism. Of Soon Dr to standing up in the middle of meeting and pacing as you think is not necessarily your traditional hey drive the car forward leadership. There's a big knock at Google today it's that and this comes from investors analysts even some executives of the company it's that the company is pretty much operating on autopilot. It makes almost all of its money from online advertising and you don't really have to do much besides sit there and the money comes in adding an extra add to youtube isn't exactly a high level. Decision. So the criticism is that sooner hasn't necessarily made the big move to position Google for the next decade on the other hand. When you have such a head start that Google has just not messing up is a billion dollar proposition. And what about as a coworker? What's he known for that? The best thing that's has going for him is that people genuinely like him in fact, one of his deputies Caesar. Gupta told me he loved sooner Pichai. He said the reason I stayed at Google this long as because of Dr He's someone that I trust. He moved to Jakarta because soon are asked him to. People. Say in this world where everyone is obsessed with Silicon Valley with what is happening in Menlo Park and Palo Alto and San Francisco that soon Dr a truly global outlook that he cares for instance, about Google pay in India where there are many multiples number of people using payment products in there are in the US. But tacitus surly had as much investment and one of the really fun things that is in the story is he's very much a creature of habit. You can imagine your CEO of of Alphabet you're traveling the world whenever he's in Korea he goes to the same burrito place an orders, the same Veggie Burrito. And in this world of he's hard-driving CEOS who appear in TMZ or go through high profile divorces. Everyone says that sooner Chai's legitimately just a kind nice guy.

What does South East Asia want from the US and China?
"Bland is director of South, East Asian program at the low institute and Longley to. She's a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute walk into your by. Ben How is the increasingly assertive use and indeed Australian position on China. How is that being interpreted in South East Asia. We have this is a very broad region of ten countries of different size from giants like Indonesia to minnows, like Brunei to have been diverse reactions, but broadly speaking I think there's a lot of frustration with the trump administration the way it's being on the one hand increasingly unilateral and unpredictable. But on the other hand, there's this fear of US abandonment if you like in a long-term leaving the region to. Gemini so I think we have to understand. It's a complex picture, right? So the US has to treaty allies in southeast, Asia Thailand, and the Philippines and they've been amongst the countries that are most China friendly and most frustrated with the US government in recent years be while we see a former. FO- like Vietnam there's being one of the most receptive of the US approach to. Try and run the loss years. So it's quite complicated I. Think the real risk here is that the US government and to a lesser extent that I'm camera believes that it's more assertive stance on China is appreciated in the region and I think that's really not necessarily the case because at the end of the day like Australia. But most South East Asian countries China is that biggest. Partner, as well as being geographic neighbor is that you're reading to Huang given the Vietnam of course has been just mentioned is a Cold War Foe of united, states but in in the face of verizon charts getting closer to Washington. Southeast Asian nations have gone through a different phases of. Living next to China, they've known China. Through historical engagements of this is not a new thing for them. The anxiety about China's and China's might end as you mentioned, they've gone through A. Competition to window call when they have still vivid memories of that. So in overall I think they they do have anxiety. There is a pronounced anxiety about the intensifying great-power competition that might. Lead to similar way of asking them to choose sides like was in the Cold War but I think all of them want to keep both China and us in the region a engaged. Also not too. Aggressive or not to assertive, and they also want to involve other. Powers not only the be the two big ones but also Japan Australia's are career and the European countries. A little bit of competition is good for them but took much competition can be nervous. Let's bring it to Indonesia Ben. There's your name subject at the end of last year Indonesia and China had a face off over the ownership of the Natuna islands which are in the southernmost part of the area of the South China Sea claimed by China. Where does Jakarta stand on China? Now it's an, it's an interesting question building a wall who was just talking about because we look at Indonesia's president. Jerko with widow known as Jacoby, I've just written the first English biography of him the plug in that. He he is an economy I president. He is someone who is above all interested in creating more jobs, getting more investment into Indonesia, and especially during a time of covid nineteen when the economy's really collapsed and Jacoby is a transactional leaders that he wants those who are bringing the most money with fewer conditions and right now that is China Chinese state-owned companies. Chinese. Private companies like qualify as well. On, the other hand of course, Jacoby has to be seen to be defending Indonesia's sovereignty and we have had these clashes over fishing rights. I have access to certain waters that you mentioned. So I think when those of come to head, Jacoby has made a symbolic stance. He's gone out to the tune of see visited the islands gone onto ability ship a symbolic declaration. He's going to defend Indonesia's sovereignty but by in laws you trying to stay away from these. Geopolitical issues to play down the tensions with China said of the economic relationship can keep developing. So it's a really difficult balance and I think there's also a shift that's potentially happening in Indonesia. So the old guard if you like in the Foreign Ministry and the government in the military, they really view above all other things strategic autonomy on non-alignment as being the key for Indonesia. So don't get into any alliances don't get too close to any one power but. There isn't new of God if you like coming through increasing, you think Indonesia needs to be a bit more active about engaging with potentially the US Australia, the Europeans Japanese to try and balance out the region. But for now are really think with Jacoby in the hot seat it's the economy I put the geopolitics aside at the end of the day that's a positive for China, but it's not an open and shut case because the had been long been tensions. Between Indonesia and China. So Jacoby like a lot of other leaders in the region, we'll have to find this delicate balance, but it's getting harder and harder and Huong Vietnam your nation. Let's talk about that. It's been pushing back against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea, which threatens Vietnam oil drilling and fisheries, and of course, it's had an ongoing dispute about water flows in me congresses where China has built dams stream at tell us more about Vietnam position on China. Is Getting nece position on on current China is also a frustrated I. Think at Phnom has gone grew proably among all in countries have had the longest history of interaction with China and most cases where it was trying to defend its own national sovereignty and resist China's expansionist tendencies. So it's been ingrained in Vietnamese National Psyche I would say current us of China Sea conflict to end disputes are only. One of the examples of that, but it is similarly with others opposition countries, which is it's harder and harder to seek more peaceful avenues of dispute because it is a strategy in the South China Sea is among others was to include the direct dialogue with China but that is not really much come to help these days with Chinese expansion expansionist tendencies. Now, you mentioned also on which is very important. Aspect in the relationship. Phnom is at any of the lower mccown and China, is a deal a top of the upper and it's projects of a building dams and not only in China, but a call goes invest in dance in now Cambodia Yaman and Thailand that blocks blocks the water flow blocks were flow of the river, which is very important for agricultural conditions in. Asia and it is called the bowl of rice for the region and the countries. Of course, they export rise agricultural produce and also Crohn's fish and stuff like that. So we've China's interference into ecological nature of the river that can potentially add cost a lot of income for the countries, but also with a backup climate change that can pose a certain at time. Security threat to the food safety and food security of the region. So it is quite a leverage that China can have on the lower countries including at Phnom follow question to Ben Bland. Given what you said earlier about the relatively nuanced in measured response of south. East. Asia towards the United. States if you like trying to ride two horses simultaneously. What happens if China's rise continues on, abide it and seeks to dominate the region and America as the acting regional hegemony on goes to great lengths to stop China from dominating is where do you think? Will be of Southeast Asia then it's it's really hard to say how things go election coming up in the US very soon, I think that could have a big impact on how how things go in the. Trump and pretty anti-china. There's really a difference in degree rather than just shooting Washington goes to great lengths to stop China what they. In, that scenario. All I think I think we're probably not GONNA get to a situation where South East Asian countries have to choose one side of such. But what they will have to do is face an increasing number of difficult small choices about what technology they use in their mobile networks about what military exercises that willing to do about what investment projects say yes or no To so life will get tougher and tougher for the region, but I don't think at the end of the day. Any of the countries will be willing to join an alliance either with the US or with China. So they're going to keep trying to find the space in the gaps in between to try and exploit competition for the best interest if you're looking at. The longer term picture I think there's ways the big affair of the US just turning back inwards and the ultimately that the trump presidency. The rise of trump is probably a symptom of the issues in the US which are gonNA lead to a turning inwards and maturing of the US as a power being less influential pretension in Asia and the rest of the world. So, it may not be a question of China in the US coming to a head but the US rhetoric increasing the US pretend you withdrawing from the region
Coronavirus Around The World: How Countries Are Coping With COVID-19 Surges
"Back to the Corona virus as a continuous has said too grim and unwelcome records. Global cases and I above 13.5 1,000,000 got Brazil topping two million alone and India one million elsewhere in Asia, Hong Kong and Japan and likewise reporting record numbers. Let's get more as we cross over to our senior international editor, Jody Schneider. 30 in this part of the world cases continue to go up on Japan and Hong Kong. We did have a feeling that the virus has been contained, but think there's those feelings were misplaced. Tell us about what's happening. Yeah, Rich has really no good news across Asia. Now we're seeing places like Manila, which had a lock down, which he's now it may return to a lock down that they have a case of Dr Same thing in Jakarta, Indonesia. They're keeping their social difference in measures that were set to fire and she notes in Japan and Tokyo and Hong Kong places where things have seen relatively good seeing surges in cases, including ah, locally transmitted cases, But that's a welcome from there, not just from Top people travelling back travelling back indicates the Hong Kong so measures are now being re imposed in Hong Kong are coping.

And Judy. What about India, where the virus seems widespread. What's the latest there? What's the government doing? Yeah, there it has already hit officially hit. The one million market is expected very soon. And that's of course very concerning. This is a place that had a very, very strict locked out. People were famously what tongue to their villages left cities. And they were just starting to feel like they had gotten ahead of them, and now they're really does seem to be no end in sight, and it's very hard to contain that such a large country. It's a large population. How many in a very densely populated areas of India is one of the real concerns in the region. And on the possibility of a vaccine. We've got toe Britain. The U. S on Canadian government, all alleging the Russian state intelligence is hacking research centers were trying to develop a vaccine. But what do we know about this and have any of these vaccine program's been set back? Yeah, That's the real question, which is unclear whether the research facilities back were hacked into apparently had damaged war. The back programs have been set back a zoo result of the hacks. Officials are warning that the cyber attacks are ongoing, so it is a real concern and this is now the UK, US and Canadian government have all said in dramatic statement. On a particularly you came in first setback scene and therapeutic sectors. Multiple countries have been targeted by this good that it's on was certainly according to U K part of Russian State intelligence. But the real question is, did you know in fact the vaccine production or testing, which has been going forward? That's been one of the bright spots like you would think that go ahead. The question is how much of this has been affected. Senior international editor Jody Schneider in Hong Kong.

Interview with Coach of WTA Top 20 Maria Sakkari
"Welcome to a milestone episode fifty of the Functional Tennis podcast. I'm Fabio Molly your host and this week we are speaking to one of the youngest coaches. The youngest coach on the professional tour Tom Hale. Tom Is the current coach of the Greek Maria, Sakari who is currently twenty in the world. Tom Tells all about his early days of tennis with his family relocated to IMG in Florida from the UK about training at IMG, and then onto his college scholarship pepperdine on eventually moving into the coach. Coach and world and how he got into coaching world. It's a fascinating fun story, and it's great to get inside the head of pro. Tour coaches before we get started especial thanks to our PODCAST, sponsors head who make our favorite rackets here at functional tennis okay. Here we go. Let's hear Tom. Story Hi Tom. Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Thank you for having me. Great Avenue Board couch to speak to learn a bit of orbit. You have your such a young coach working with some. Some great players so tell before we get started. How has locked and being for you? Do you work with Maria carry has stopped being the communication on what she's working on. And all that side tanks. Yes, so I've honestly lost track of the days of what exactly I actually went into lockdown. As soon as I flew back from Indian wealth. That was a little bit before the official down in the UK. so I've been in lockdown for a while from Maria I think Greece. Greece Osa went into lockdown at around the same time as the UK it was only around two weeks ago where she actually started practicing again so I'd say kind of the way I was. It was more just kind of motivation for the last eight weeks and I know everyone's kind of going through the same Maria like. Let's just kind of take it one day at a time. We don't know when the toll is GONNA be returning Trans Focus on fitness home workouts. Do some sort of. The strategic videos things like that, but it's also. It's very difficult. I think at the same time mostly. Just having rest is good. I think players can get burnt out in the season so I honestly feel like the rest is perfectly fine. Marie actually started training again a couple of weeks ago. So now I'm not able to more of a tennis coach. You know planning the practices. In the UK I get out degrees to to help the. We have a hitting. You just kind of running through the program that I'm setting hone I. Think the a soon as she's been able to get back on court. Motivation is obviously increasing. It's still difficult because I. Don't think anybody has any idea of when tournaments are going to return. It's a tough tough times. Everyone the I think the fact that she's on call is is definitely helping as the, neither it's I've just been doing some homework outs some fitness trying to work on like a few little side projects that to be honest. I'm enjoying the timing because. Because my family because I'm on the road last last year on the road for forty two weeks in the year, so just to be able to spend more than two weeks in a row. My family I'm really trying to like make the most of that. Twelve forty two weeks is a lot and plus we're going to just talk a bit about your younger days. How you got into tennis moves to states. You've been away from your family for a long time. Now he has an factually I was I went to Orange Jakarta me when I was ten Ashleigh my family moved out with me, so I was within to. My family sacrificed lots in a even, though has kind of been all around the world. They have been with me. Notice the time. It's only really kind of skin since university when I went to tech when I kind of been a little bit more on my own. So the kind of it's kind of been kind the last I'd say seven years when I kind of maybe had a week with my parents here two weeks task three weeks like three weeks is like Tracy's, and that's like. The off season period. That's the most I get. That I'd say when I was like a junior and playing. I was lucky that my parents sacrificed law and Wherever I was training they. Relocated stop plays the that of makes it a lot easier when you relocate halfway across the world. What was it like moved? ten-year-old of IMG was like you just like I just WanNa be a pro tennis player and I need to be here. Was that decision you made? You told your parents I need to get over there or was that something that they came to you with the kind of good question. Because I remember when I was younger, I was always debating between a full tennis, I was very good. And I I remember having a fight with my my code because I like to play up front score. The goals kind of be like you know the one everybody loves. To strike exactly, and and then he we had some some problem in defense and I had play one game as a defender. Although it's a crew school position in football. US to to a ten year old. I'm just kind of just the back. Just waging I had I was playing on a very good team so I actually didn't have to do too much and I wanted to be kind of Indiaction, so that kind of slowly lost my. With the football, the sport I was playing at the time was also tennis and. I remember I would have problems of my school. They wouldn't allow me enough time to to go out to school to practice my tennis play football and I got kind of a stage I was dying to take. My parents actually really enjoy tennis I. I would love to try and become a professional, and I think my parents they. I, mean they. They battled with the schools to try and see if they could get me an extra hour alto, instead of doing he at school I could go, and do you know get some tennis lessons and it just? It proved to be too difficult. At the club that I was training at. K., Salahuddin at the time I'd actually been on a few camps to I N G Academy in Florida with the Celada and kind of junior program about ten fifteen years ago, there was some you know great. Junior junior players in the Birmingham area and I I just kind of under that kind of saints. My parents would be amazing if I could go train. IMG tennis would be so much better. and you know my parents took massive sacrifice, and and you know they let me. They gave me an opportunity to go and do it, and honestly it was the best decision. I made some tennis around that age at ten years old.
Streaming Storage Reimagined
"This Corey Menton and we are back with another season of the big. Dig Up Your podcast and we're GONNA kick it off in style this time with a little conversation around streaming storage reimagined and have that conversation today. I'm joined by two folks from Dell Technologies. Amy Nannies is the product. Marketing Manager Adult Technologies and Flavio. Jakarta is the senior distinguished engineer. Adele Technologies Aiming Flavio. Welcome to the show. Amy How are you surviving in this crazy corona virus work from home migration and doing surprisingly well? I think I was made for this kind of living. What's funny I had a conversation yesterday and I somebody said its worst nightmare for an extrovert. Because we don't get to get out and socialize but it's also works nightmare for an introvert because you really don't get a lot of downtime because there's so many people in the house potentially for those of those kids and wives and families and all this stuff so it's everybody's struggling a little bit flabbier. How are you doing in this time? I'm pretty good pretty good. It has been on. It has been nice intelligent at the same time. Nice from the perspective that We spend a lot of time with family together like I. I believe we have never done before. So that's nice but telling him. Part is not being which you step outside me here stain. We have full lockdown. Now can we go tight for groceries and all that stuff from that perspective is challenging but You know we. We were coping very well. So we'll good well. I hope everybody else's stand out there. Hope our audience sustained safe and hopefully this conversation with episode. We'll give you something to enjoy in the lockdown. That's happening so many places around the world. Now business hasn't stopped. People are still out there. Working trying to derive value from data and one of the conversations kind of macro themes that has been really popular over the last two years. If you will is this concept of analytics on streams so I want to set the table Amy would you favor and help us understand? What exactly do people mean when they talk about streams sure yes so extreme as just a continuous data feed? That's in constant motion. So there's no beginning there's no end. Typically we have a time stamp on our data feed so this is different because it's always flowing Today a lot of our data naturally comes in this form you know everyone has a organizations are beginning to utilize drones and security cameras. So we're seeing this information produced all the time interesting now. This constant stream of data a guessing is kind of important you just mentioned a few Kenna interest in areas security and surveillance and those kind of things why streaming getting so much press. These days is becoming really critical for modern analytics. Yeah so you know. It's important for us to be able to consume it store it and analyze it in real time as it's coming in because we get the most value from this data as it's coming in A good example is when we're shopping online so we get to the cart and we have suggested purchases if the computer behind that was to look at that data. Historically we'd be getting it a week from now and that wouldn't be as valuable Or something like traffic lights. We can look at how busy they are and change the timing in between them if we can get that information as it's coming in so the ability to analyze information as it's coming in is hugely valuable in almost every industry. Yeah so get into that real time. Capability is so challenging. I imagine you know there's a lot organizations and a lot of technology is being built and developed to handle executive that problem so far beyond cures from your perspective. What are the challenges that this stream type data bring to maybe those traditional analytics platforms that organizations have spent the last five ten years deploying right so following up on a on what amy said if you're continuously generating data in you can imagine applications where you have a large number of these data sources? So she she used an online shopping example right. But you can also think of food servers Sensors edge applications in general. You can have many of those and all of those producing this flows of data continuously so this year diggity unnecessary to ingest this data and make available downstream. So if you're talking about applications that we want you tell that street rates went to processing data as soon as possible so ingesting that making available news is challenged by itself. Now if you think about the characteristics of of the Stream flows they need their unbounded right so as you mentioned the arm-banded so they have They have a beginning. They begin at some point by there is no no no. There's there isn't necessarily an end end. Not even that alone. You can have fluctuations in the in the workload so that the flow. You're getting my change in my few censors at some point or more sensors oranmore service fiercer results although this cannot can fluctuate and and the the your plan which accommodate those changes and in addition to that you don't want you don't want to have duplicates miss events or or or have problems with the with the streaming away that doesn't reflect what application expects a consistencies and other is another important property. All that's with the with the application wanting to deliver results with low latency so he's taking that data processing yet and delivering results as possible. And finally the the the aspect of reacting facet changes. So if you are in this in the situation that you are taking the state alive processing live and delivering results as fast as possible. System must also be able to accommodate changes to too many thanks to the work as I mentioned on. That could be faults in the system needs to watch to react to those.

"Indonesia's pollution and rubbish problems legendary and in Greater Jakarta to around thirty million people. Construction Development are taking a huge toll on the environment but there are still tiny pockets of grain in the concrete jungle. One Australian man is trying to engage his local village to Cape Development by by encouraging sustainable farming organic produce and recycling Indonesia correspondent and Baka reports. Came here this was all terracing. People who've been growing SWEET POTATO. Hiffernan them time probably in the possibly rise on the southern outskirts of Jakarta is a pocket of Lush Green Hills as skyscrapers and high rise. Buildings spread relentlessly outward from the Indonesian capital. This is one of a dwindling number of fertile areas in Greater Jakarta very special web the arise on this water is plentiful here even during the long dry season but the constant precious of development threaten this pristine patch. We're kind of wanting to to projects that help. Save that Middle Section and and that's what we've been told Australian John Ryan and his Indonesia wife. Dante have taken on an experiment not only to protect this small green enclave but to use it to enlist as many locals as possible to spread the word about environmentally sustainable farming organic produce recycling and Waste Management Turning Waste Management. You got the classic scenario. Every afternoon people pile up their rubbish and burner and it's they don't understand him to patients You know they've been doing it for hundreds of years sweeping the leaves and burning them every day the couple moved here from Melbourne to sit up. Coban Mata Lima or five is farm. Which combines everything from fish farming ecu- opponents and permaculture to medicinal plants organic crop St Tea Production and recycling all on less than two acres of land. They don't pretend they can change the world. Their own village would be enough but in a city. That's arguably the most polluted and lead in Southeast Asia. They play a tiny role in shifting people's thinking towards cleaner greener healthier lives. We see the big world took this opportunity to her. They can we get to be the ten reasons they will be the running and they can open. Look at Wall Big Rene to get back to get back in touch. With the natural world that we've cocooned ourselves from these wonderful cities full of the technology in the concrete and the concrete Eden that we've built on those wet where we've actually built nature out villages around Kabul in Mata Lima torn between traditional lives as Rizal Crop Farmers and the lure of modern day living. What Green there is left. Here is littered with plastic and rubbish. The local river is used to wash clothes water crops and feed animals and for many as a toilet classic came into play in about seventies here and it just kept building off and that just got added to what they did in the natural environment. And there's no differentiation in the thinking is when you have a discussion about the plastic. It's bad for our health that you're not old. Blassie wish lost two and half years. We build a wall. Thousands of plastic and glass bottles went into building. Jonah Dante's unusual home. Fourteen thousand car tires have been used in the house and to build. Fencing around five is Some of the villages were gardens or on maintenance local landowners come to workshops on organic farming recycling and most days schoolchildren dropping to practice their English shore out of curiosity over no shops at a deeper level about some of the ecology and biodiversity on farm about different processes founding at Kopenicks that. We're running the animal thumb. The the Organic Thurman Different Systems. These things I love to be teaching and we have been starting to do that with different groups from around Indonesia and also from the payroll so dream of a local farmer's market for organic produce heavy market. We can offer them something bigger. Say Kay the spare land a little bit and then grow organic and we buy it from you but we still working in the market. We can promising new. Organic farming is far from new in Indonesia. A big Further south supplies many of the supermarkets in Jakarta but at a local family level. It's still rare. The whole cultural organic in here is viewed as expensive. So it's it's about the value of his. Is this really organic and if it is going to do John. Reid believes healthy. Plants and produce can in turn lead to a healthier Indonesia improve. The economy is trying to. It doesn't have to be expensive to calm in some of the ways that we're doing and that it's just a a change of thinking. Indonesia would benefit because their food will be healthier. They will grow eventually faster. They have to initially be patient. India's countries and in the process in certain provinces where the whole province one of them anymore India has has gone. Oh Canada the government has helped support and everyone's had to be very patient for two years in a transition and then they re benefits and Boca reporting from Jakarta there.

New opportunity to boost Indonesia-Australia economic ties - The Jakarta Post
"Few international problems in the post world war. Two era have proved difficult for our nation as development of friendly policy towards indonesia. Just think about it. Jakarta's annexation of west papua in nine hundred sixty to the attempted coup d'etat and successful counter-coup by the indonesian army that was nineteen sixty five the invasion of as. Taymor seventy five. The dili massacre ninety. One the east team or mission in ninety nine. And who can forget the controversies over terror. Attacks live cadillacs bullpens successive wives of boatpeople this spying revelations and drug trade and of course those executions so has president jarkko daito or jacuzzi or jacoby as he's known has. His visit marked a new era in australia. Indonesia relations this week to cowie was only the second indonesian leader to address a joint sitting of parliament and he came to camera bearing a gift. He's approval of the trade deal between our two countries. Greg feely is associate professor of indonesian politics at the australian national university's college of asia and the pacific and diming kingsbury is professor international politics at deakin university in melbourne. greg damian. Welcome back to our in. Thank you now damien. Does that you kelly visit this week. Does that maka a dramatic breakthrough in australia. Indonesia relations look it's a really positive sign and it does mock an improvement in relations but i don think in itself comprises an entirely new relationship. It's just a step in the right direction. Okay so the the relationship still presumably dogged by bitterness and suspicion but it was obvious support and even warmth towards education from both sides of politics gregg fairly. Yes that's right i think The y.`all would characterize it is the jacobi visa was building on the breakthrough which is the comprehensive economic partnership agreement. That was signed early last year. And what saw with dakota's visa was. He's personal preparedness and preparedness. He's government to really put its white behind the agreement. I think a lot of people think the agreement in pie terms is very good but the question is canopy implemented properly. Can the red type be cleared away in indonesia. Can we persuade australian businesses to invest more Generously in indonesia and i think the jacoby visa guy very positive signs for that still a lot of things to done for that The potential of that agreement to be realized but it was really good. Move in that direction. Again it's been said that. The many lingering suspicions profile in jakarta indonesians still resent l leading role insecure in a team os independence because it was more than twenty years ago. Yes i think One of the ironies here he said indonesia now has very good relations with east t- more and he's teamer leaders Fighted in fact when i go to jakarta and the strata is still has this legacy of suspicion towards indonesia. I think you have to back. Partly in history this great saints vulnerability that Many asians feel that logic countries or large countries around them at trying to split up their country to conduct. Bulkin is it and the ace taymor. Even though he's team always not part of the original borders of the dutch colony. Die still feel that as team will confirmed that Other countries have these designs upon the country and upon its unity and after his team. More focusing shifted to papa. This strategy may still want to divide papua dining. You've written a lot about west papua and at the heart of the standoff in two thousand and six paul showed that something like seventy five percent of australian supported independence for the former dutch colony. This why the indonesians are uneasy about estrada's position. He certainly one of the issues in the makeup of mistrust and complexity in the relationship There's there's been longstanding depths in jakarta's to either strang government doesn't do more to acquire pro-separatist Sentiment in australia. They believe the particularly the ngo sector has played a role in stirring up separatist sentiment in west. Papua and there is Continuing concern that australia has too much of a focus particularly on eastern indonesia which is also the poorest part of the country. Well how then do we bridge. These divides greg. I mean to. What extent is this new free. Try deal. This is the so-called indonesia australia comprehensive economic partnership agreement. Ten years in the making to what extent does that he'll these divisions. I don't know that it heals the divisions poseidon. I think many of the the list of things you you sit out at the beginning of the interview. I think we have always had the potential. I knew things like that to occur but one of the consistently underperforming parts of the bilateral relationship has been the economic ties and so this comprehensive agreement will hopefully see much more economic activity between the two countries and that in itself might provide some kind of deepest ability but if the economic relationship expand by site thirty to forty percents in the next few years diamond. Wouldn't the free try deal really mocking important development for the relationship a look. There's no question that it's an important step in in in strengthening relationship. This guy is back to what gareth evans was talking about in the nineteen eighties. Where he said we needed to add ballast to the relationship unbalanced. He meant if we can get a strong economic relationship between australia and indonesia implies than the rest of it will follow behind because there will be a an upfront primary interest in preserving the economic relationship. And that's always been a difficulty. In the relations destroy and strength companies have invested in indonesia but not to a great extent. The head found difficulties. There this free trade agreement certainly opens up more opportunity for investments and tried but again and again as greg has alluded to. I think the question will be. How much strategies is to take out this opportunity and whether or not they say the the problems of doing business in indonesia over combat is free trade agreement whether or not there's going to be impediments to a greater degree of engagement. My guests greg. Feely from new in camera and damien. Kingsbury from deacon in melvin. And here's a little fun fact. This is according to the australian this week. It was chris. Bowen the library from benca podcast on iran and between the lines. It was chris bowen in his shirt who walked away the most chuffed with these brave. Jacoby interaction we he. The president complimented bowen's flawless fluency in indonesian. Little known fact chris. Bowen speaks indonesian now. A few years ago china's president she addressed indonesia's legislature to great fanfare. So the fees guy. Now what's the nature of the relationship now between jakarta and beijing greg. There's a lot of similarities between indonesia's relations with china and distributors Janis niger economic partner for indonesia. It's also niger investor in the country indonesia's increasing the Pot of china's belt and road initiative. So it's getting a lot of development money. These increasing penetration of lodge chinese corporations building infrastructure for example hospitalized row link between the capital jakarta and the regional capital abandon So there's a. There's a lot of economic activity happening and president. She has very good personal relationship with prisoner jacoby but they're also tensions. One of the tensions is chinese fishing boat incursions into indonesian territorial waters In near the south china sea in the name of the island of tuna and that causes a lot of angst in indonesia sometimes confrontation between Nio vessels of both countries. Another problem is a fairly high level of underwent lying suspicion towards the chinese in indonesia so this often bubbles politically to the surface in indonesia and people say that indonesia is at risk of losing some sovereignty to the chinese and so this is always a break for a leader. Such as jacoby who badly needs chinese investment and the development expertise if he saying as Ext doing that excessively will then he will be attacked for that. Well could chana's rise than i mean. It's obviously threatening. The integrity of sovereign states around the region diamond could could china's roz helped draw camera and jakarta even closer. Yes look there's been a discussion now going back several years in canberra about a closest security relationship within the news yet it seems to be a natural hartman in the region Geography i think determines that to a large extent but our strategic interests similar in relation to china about countries want to have a strong economic relationship with china We want to have china's investments and tried to sell into china but we also want to limit china's expansion in the region strategic rich particularly in the south china sea and In relation to them turner islands which is at the southwest of the south china saying there is neither lapping climbed by china and indonesia. And that's what to the tensions of mid january this year. What we're seeing though is. Indonesia is welcoming china roman hand but in terms of economic growth and development but in terms of china's growing strategic runyon ambition. There's a great deal of skepticism. I think in indonesia as the reason chinandega familiar story. Now let's turn finally gentlemen to indonesia internally. Let's get your reaction to something. The indonesian journalist. Julia sirak osama. This is what she told my. Rn colleague andrew west. This week joey. His record on democracy and human rights has declined and in fact now many activists think that not just activists observers think that democracy indonesia has lowest point in twenty years. It is ironic since when we had the reform era after suharto stepped down. That was supposed to be the beginning of democratization in indonesia but that has opened up a pandora's box and released all the traditional religious conservatives and mainly religious groups has sacrificed human rights. And what he says in a book phobia and intolerance for the sake. Offline call stability. Indonesian journalist julia sura kasama on iran's religion and ethics program. This week diming kingsbury. Look i think that Jacoby has moved in a couple of areas which have raised eyebrows. About his commitment to a plurality and human rights particular around the issues of religion and religious tolerance and so on. But broadly. I think jacoby is an inheritor of the reform tradition particularly that started by cecilia among indiana and that he really is deepening and embedding democratic practice. If we some limitations around the edges. Yeah well greg failure. I mean it's often argued that indonesia the fourth because nation in the world. We tend to forget that. It represents a persistent triumph of democracy this the nation journalists big for a lot of activists when she says that the indonesian ideal of tolerance really has been destroyed. So i think it's probably i'll i think she's somewhat. This is always a matter of the bites. Don't mean any disrespect to julius Sort of kasuma but Under jacoby in fact. Religious tolerance has somewhat improved on democracy. Some of the things that jacoby has initiated have really harmed the quality of democracy and there are several things that are being discussed by. he's government wrought now and by the parliament which if implemented could be a considerable reversal. He wouldn't stop indonesia being a democracy. But it would reduce the quality of the democracy greg damian and important discussion. Thanks so much again for being on our end

Travel to Lombok, Indonesia
"Today? We're GONNA talk about lumberjack. The island of Lombok in Indonesia. Okay let's put it on a map first of all. I'm not sure that everybody can find Indonesia on a map but we're in the Western Pacific that's right in between the Pacific. Can the Indian Ocean. But where is the island of Lombok. Usually the way I tell people to locate Lombok is most people have heard of Bali and Bali. Alley is the island directly east of Bali in the the sort of archipelago of Indonesia which is more or less near the center of the Indonesian is winds. And that's where it is right next to the Bali. Okay and it right next to Bali and then also not that far from the Allen de Jakarta is is on. The name of that island escapes me for the moment at Java Java Java actually said it was near the center it's actually not news and draw wasn't considering Sumatra which is the largest of the islands and another interesting place to explore but you have Java which is the largest of the Indonesian islands rubs up against Peninsular Malaysia Asia. If you follow it east. You hit Carta in the island of Java next to Java you have Bali and then right after Bali a little further east you have lumbar well and people have heard about most of those islands. We're talking about except potentially Lombok. Why are we talking about Lumbar? Well for one and I guess we're talking about it because I just spent five weeks there with my family A couple months ago. We've spent a good deal of time in various parts of Indonesia. We'd he'd heard good things about Lombok and the reasons I would suggest going is especially for those who have been Bali. Feel that it's becoming overdeveloped overdeveloped and maybe in all the baggage that comes with that Lombard is a is a simpler place. It's less developed even though it is starting to gain tourism dollars too little sleep beer but it still has a lot of the same charm in the natural wonders of what you would find in Bali now as you know Oh and many of your listeners. Probably Know Bali Hindu island smack in the middle of of Indonesia which is a predominantly Muslim country. Right Lombok is not long is a Muslim. As Long Island nation may be island. Nation is too strong a word but I mean before Indonesia was a country all of these islands were at their own distinct cultures. Their own distinct getting ethnic tribes as well and so that element of Lombok. We found to be very interesting to have. It has a touch of the tropical paradise that Bali is but it comes from a completely different cultural background. And I don't know the history of the country of Indonesia but I'm guessing that it was conglomerates during the colonial period under into the Dutch. That's true okay. With my also limited knowledge of that these were all their own countries but then the Dutch spice merchants and colonists lists made it into one place far as I know there are still tensions between one part of Indonesian another in very vast cultural and linguistic differences assist between them for example on Lombok the predominant at this is the sack people and Sasa has their own language their own food their our own customs that you would not find in say Sumatra or Java or any of the other islands. Okay what kind of activity do you recommend mend for Lombok Guano you like to Kinda give a week long itinerary and give you a week or two weeks. Of course. We're going someplace relatively remote here. I'll give you an ambitious week or or perhaps a solid two week itinerary. I think most people would fly into to Lombok even though you can also I should say that a lot of people. We'll take speedboats or slow boats over from Bali. It's that close okay. We're talking twenty minutes. Thirty minutes on a speedboat or less. Oh Wow okay. So it's it's very Mary clubs. I would start in the Sing Gigi area which is to the West. The airport is in the sort of the southwestern region. Sing cing Gigi. Beach is a beach area to the west the island and in Kuta not to be confused with Bali Kuta but there is a Kuta area to to the south of the island. Both of these have exceptional snorkeling surfing scuba diving. I think that would be probably the easiest a place to start if you just WanNa have some laidback beach time. Okay I'm guessing if we don't want some laid back beach time. We probably shouldn't be spending our time and going all the way to Indonesia that that's part of what you come here for. I would think so. We certainly do an mason kind of strange especially if we started talking travel. We've lived in a lot of islands in beach areas. We're not actually big beach. People like that we burn easily. And I'm we. I'm talking about my family. Because aren't we have altogether all the time. I burn easily the sun and sand and all of that but I love beaches at night but we are big water. People would have my kids love to surf. My kids like snorkeling is. I'm sure I'll mention in the interview. They both got their junior patty scuba diving lessons while during this trip. And there's all of those kinds of things while you're in the Gigi area speaking of kind of water one of the things that we really like to do more than saltwater as we like freshwater what are we like streams and waterfalls and Lombok is just riddled just like Bali and a lot of ways lots of beautiful tropical waterfalls in rainforests and forest. And they're reachable. You you can hire a driver or as we do we rent scooters and with all the risks that that entails and I could get into that if you needed to we probably should. We probably should. Because it's good that you know that but I'm not sure that everybody who rents scooters understands that there are some some risks involved in scooter. Travel saying you shouldn't do it but you should be aware of it so when you say you rent scooters with all the risks involved tell me a little more about your thought process process year. You're traveling with two kids. I recall a wife and yourself and you're on to scooters for scooters one scooter the typical Indonesia uh-huh in Vietnam. We were all four on one scooter. But when we are in most places it's better to have to scooters in one parent in in one child. I think what you're getting at is traffic in southeast. Asia is is is a little hectic. It doesn't follow all the rules. Stop Lights and you are just suggestions. Yes right there are parts of Indonesia that I would not ride a scooter in Sumatra. We've have never ridden written a scooter at least in northern Sumatra where we've been because the roads were in poor condition. Plus there's lots of construction equipment logging trucks trucks. You don't want to have to be run off the road those kinds of things now. That being said in Lombok just like in Bali the roads are in pretty good condition and if you have experienced riding riding scooters in this kind of environment I would recommend it that being said a lot of travel insurance companies will not cover any sort of accidents or damages damages if you do not have a scooter motorcycle license in your home

And so on so I is one of these stories that, you know, we're just kind of stories like this every day now right up to the elections, as you know, is basically some cause for optimism though, that this this might of burned out a little bit this sort of this strange fundamentalist craziness which which saw somebody locked up for bless me. Not I think so I think is a ecause rope to mizzen that may be co is going to win the election and propose not going to. But I don't think is a cause for for elation about the state of the Islamic revivalism that we've got an Indonesia, and is fundamentalism is strong. And it's there is completely change politics. Maintaining the seam of some. What regressive sounding stories emanating from Indonesia. This is the post. Well, the headline sums it up quite nicely as the rest of the world quits, Indonesia wants lax rules tobacco investment does Indonesia see pulse ability here as as the the rest of the world tries to win it so forth tobacco. Yeah. I guess. I mean, Indonesia, obviously grows tobacco and Indonesians smoked tobacco. Yeah. I mean, I it's a weird one. They've got some many tobacco and all the health problems associated with it such a well-known problem, Indonesia, clearly is taking another track, and what was happening is liberalizing the tobacco industry to allow foreign investment coming which has been yes. Quite a coma. One for choline terms of developing infrastructures, always a here is she the tobacco infrastructure. I guess you say with this idea that there's also going to be trickled down to the the small and medium sized companies associated with tobacco. But you know, when the same time the government has this plan to reduce smoking amongst the under eighteen population. So and so forth as just working case and the predictions here actually that numbs of Andrei again and contain gonna rise and so on and this is just storing up enormous problem in into the decades ahead as you know, in disease. Which is still has really quite a young population. And this young male population of smokers gets older is just going to be an enormous crisis for the health system.

"So, but actually I write about basically my initiation into this whole other worlds of the city in which I lived, which was sparked by Nessie going fried rice. And it was kind of part of general night of rebellion. It happened to coincide literally the exact same time with the first cigarette I ever smoked as well with three friends we had. We had been drinking at some party or something, and we're hungry and we're like, let's get some nasty, glorying. Let's you know, do the Jakarta thing. And let's also by feel like that, like a moment of rebellion. Yeah, absolutely. And it felt the whole thing kind of felt like this was our night of rebellion, you know? So we literally were just like smoking cigarettes wrong because it's for cigarettes of while like, no, we didn't. We didn't get sick. Shoveling, you know, orders of Nasi going into our face, but then I, that kind of, I don't remember the exact trajectory of how it happened, but that kind of ramped up became something that just became part of my weekly or every other week experience of going out with friends, alter my teenage years. And it was like an entry into this whole other part of the city that like I had called home, but wasn't really home. And suddenly it started feeling a little bit more like home because I'd be sitting next to like the local punk rock kids and like the local salarymen who are just getting off work at eleven o'clock, and it felt felt good. If I was learning the language better, I was making more Indonesian friends, and it became kind of a rite of passage into feeling like I was part of Jakarta, and sort of capstone of that is a very local variety of ESI Goering which is called Nasi grand gala, which literally translates to crazy fried rice. And this is going back to my kind of out of necessity thing and. The forebears of it was invented in Jakarta else far as people know. And it basically involves frying rice and throwing literally whatever you have on you into it. So that's usually various types of sausage. Maybe some awful. I've had it with like chicken heart before, you know, other random scraps of meat and then like to mask everything, you just put in it like a fucking barrel of chilly. So it just blows your face off as well of chopped chilis and and some hot sauce. So you need both. It's just it's fire, but it became like the that was like the one to work up to once we did that. It was like Nessie Goering Gallo where we're getting tonight and not only is it from just a card. It's from specific neighborhood in Jakarta, which fun fact happens to also be the neighborhood where Obama went to school when he was in Jakarta to the point that now one of the most famous little of Nasi going galas stands because most of these are just makeshift stands that pop up overnight is known as nasty going gala. Obama people still go see because it's right next to the school where you went as a kid. So you're saying you're, you're friends with him. I'm saying, yeah, we all know each other, you know. But so the point is like that for me was very formative in making me feel even if I was still a little bit cyber because I'm not Indonesia, and I was living in Asia for five years in a very privileged environment within Jakarta. It did make me feel like I was part of the city had kind of crossed that barrier. And you know, even. If as a teenager, I was like an idiot in every other respects, it like felt like I was at least participating some form of cultural exchange with the environment around me. You know, says it's at, I loved it. Now. It's like it's one of my fondest memories, and I just got back from Jakarta on a work trip. And one of the first things I did will you know, after midnight was like to my friends who are still there, it was like cool where we getting going dealer and we went out and we found a spot and it was like it felt really to do it again, you found in Jakarta, there.

"Design was encoded in thick cardboard cards. Each hole or position of the whole represents a hook on the loom. A hole in the card told the loom? Yes, lift this thread. So whether the hook is raised or lowered, depends on whether there's a whole or not a hole in the jet card control cards, which were tied together into a loop and fed automatically into the loom in one card represented, just one pass of thread. So there will be lots of cards so together and the loop of cards went around and around and around to create a repeating pattern just like the music encoded in the music box. This didn't mean the machine was weaving, the cloth automatically. It's still required a master Weaver and a pattern designer and a punch card maker. But it did mean the draw boys were out of a job. Once you have a Jakarta mechanism, you don't need the draw boy half of your. Your workforce can be eliminated for manufacturers who wanted to make the most beautiful. The most intricate patterns what was increasingly more important than labor was intellectual property. The designs in Jakarta, Stein. People stole these control cards because they represented patterns that if they the patterns were popular, could be very lucrative to keep fashion goes in styles. And everybody comes out with the same stuff every year, like they're all copying each other on Wall Street, the same trends. So I like to think of this as the first instance of software piracy on the people are stealing these these card loom cards, and the jacquard loom cards would lead to the development of an entire new industry that would change the world in eighteen ninety German American inventor named Sherman, hollering, devised a solution to the United States census bureau's problem of counting all the new immigrants to the country and citizens tabby. The census used to take about ten years. So that means by the time the census was finished. It was already time to start taking the next one whole earth came up with a system where if each individual's information was punched on cards, it could be processed more quickly. Herman hollering specifically quoted the Jakarta Lynn, as his influence his influence for coming up with computer punch cards. Once you have patterns of holes in a card, it's now machine readable, and that's how the census was done in three years instead of ten, the eighteen ninety census was a huge advance in the history of computing. Now, just to wrap up the story, hollering. Punch-card patents were actually the foundation for a small company. You may have heard of called International Business Machines or IBM, which in some ways owes its existence to the loom and that rising demand for beautiful ornate patterns and fashion, because fashion fashion is just another word for the constant inevitable shifts in. Popular taste garments just like buildings.
