"The woman was so sweet to us and she said before you go to china. Let's see if we can't hook you up here in new mexico. We have a lot of children that need homes and it took almost a year But she called us one day and said she had twin seven year olds that were being put up for adoption by their grandmother and Wanted to know if we'd like to meet them so we did and within two weeks they were living with us. It took nine months for the adoption to go through and i. I just know that. God sent us to new mexico when we were in the coast guard to find these little girls that he designed for their twenty seven. Now they're both married and have wonderful lives and husbands and It's just been such a blessing they were designed for us and god put us where we needed to be to find them. Basically how it works. Isn't it thank you for sharing your story. We have two berries on the line. That's not usual. That's atypical berry. Go ahead bury your berry number one doing good. I my favorite story. I was an orphan and was in a home and Baltimore and a and a baltimore on the boston. Red sox picked him up at eighteen years old and took him up to boston. Any was traded to new york city new york yankees My great grandfather was was a great horseman trotters and pacers and they met ruth at a horse auction in new york and invite him up to the house and he kept coming and kept comment. He was left handed and my dad was left handed and they became very close very very close dated wanted rouge daughter was an adopted daughter. Dated her for wanting not anything serious. It's high school bill. They her for quite a while. But dad was a very close ruth and and he gave him a bad one time and we'll autographs and dad had that back forever until there's other oncle gave that back and the shotgun that route was left hand gave that and gave them to another guy but That was very close roots as a great man. Greg greg with kids being left hand. It was not good dogs day. So a The none at the catholic school in this little town routes and my walk over from mccormack's house and told that nana says you lead belly allowances. I'm left handed. Okay leave the kid alone. Alright i know it was worth african dish originally great man And not just baseball guys. Yeah no he was fascinating and very you know. I've read multiple biographies of him. My first one. When i was probably eight years old i specifically remember being my grandmother's house and my mom was going in shopping into town shopping that day. And so she dropped my grandma. My grandma's house. I was reading in george route. A george foreman. Ruth babe ruth biography and i remember my grandmother asking me. You know who is. What are you reading about babe ruth and so i talked to her about i. Just remember that distinctly. Well i thought i had read everything. There was to read about babe. Ruth fascinated in. I commend to everyone a wonderful book by gani bill. Bryson is one of my favorite writers alive. Today is called nineteen twenty seven nineteen twenty seven is some some incredible. Things happened What's the guy at the charles. Lindbergh made the big flight and everything that went into the spirit of st louis. And how it happened. And what a precarious thing that was. It was also. I think it was beirut's greatest season. It was his history-making season and he was always on the verge of walking away being fired being arrested dying of liver. I mean he he. He himself was such a precarious Unstable character with the carousing and the drink in and and everything else but man what he could do on a baseball field. But if you get a chance. I do books on tape mostly now in the and i did it on on tape on an on a long drive in. It's called nineteen twenty seven by bill bryson in if you are interested in feats of heroism it has plenty of them and is just really incredible You're right it's true. We still say books on tape even though it's on digit. I don't know what i'd say audible but i still say books on tape and probably always will bury number two. You have one minute sir. Go ahead their my my stories about one generation away from Adoption follow was adopted. And what i want to speak to is all the votes out. There that have adopted a child the next generation the the grandchildren if you will the gift that adoption gives not only ration- but gives many generations and into my children also Adoption not only give joy to that child that was adopted but also gives joy to generation further from that adoption so my grandparents were were in brazil louisiana. My grandfather who called him grandfather taught school for more than two years and my grandma. My grandmother would call the ground. Was the switchboard operator. Basil louisiana and the love they gave to us and not only them but the people they were associated with so it it carries on generation to generation to generation when folks like you michael and those that love children ended adoption process.

She had a brother or they told us the chatter brother and We really couldn't clarify that. So we were praying about it My wife and i is laying on the council.

These things kinda come in in threes or fives. Who while biting into something broke a tooth off. Did you see the bathroom larry. The cable guy broke out broke off his front teeth. Yeah it's terrible you know. He's getting a bridge and all that took a picture because he thought it was funny. Goodness yeah go ahead. So all right. So nineteen sixty two. My biological mother walked me and my little brother into the welfare office. Put hand on my backhand on his. Push yourself to the desk. And i don't want him anymore. That your problem now. I was six and a half at the time Fast forward three years later. The state of texas had decided i was encouraged unsalvageable and threw me in a home for teenage court in Unsalvageable girls and the caseworker refused to give up and found a lady who was wanting to adopt introduced me and my parents adopted me at the age of ten Blessed beyond imagining mother taught me unconditional. Love told me out of being a sad sour foul mouthed little girl into being an actual pretty decent human being. I kinda liked me now I promised god that if he ever had a little girl that was in the same shape and just needed somebody to lover that i would do my part and so and two thousand We were introduced to our daughter who was at the time ten and we Through and a couple that was there had adopted her brother and we met her and fell in love and we adopted her and she was almost eleven when we finally Brought her home for good and I tell you it has not been an easy road. Adopting an older child is a challenge. That a lot of people just aren't up for. Yeah but it's it's important in and we have to do it. I mean it is so important.

Ramon d'you will love us into the league as much as you love knives and leather and this is right up your alley and this guy absolutely positively geeks out on making knives takes four to six months to get your knife in and he's got one five minute segment. Which is what. I was watching the break about how to maintain your life and your knife straighter which is your knife. Steel which is not your sharpener which you should only do it once and don't put it in the dishwasher. And here's why and he makes these. Hey you may see these knives. And he's been written up garden and gun It's pretty neat deal. He it's like jason. Mehta made us at chimney rock and in west palm. You go in. And he's got his leather apron on and he's in there making leather stuff. Like you know. Ben franklin or something hands have have black all over him and it's just the so few people anymore who are true craftsmen and when you find one and how passionate that how much they just geek out over there little thing. You will be so charmed by this guy making his knives that you you can't you can't start. I remember What was guy's name. That own haven randy evans remember when randy weaver. When they stole his bees they stole the beehive from his restaurant and they had stolen some other things but it was the beehive that they had stolen he was so upset about an and they. They did national articles. And i'm not sure randy was in on the joke. If you know randy he's such a he so he gadget geeks out over stuff and his bees and his honey really important to the food and all that but he's attached to his bees and so he wasn't mad. They had stolen his bees and that that had to be replaced. He was upset that someone was going to take the bees and not take care of them. I'm thinking randy their bees but anyway the the website is mckee mc enza mackenzie knife co dot com. Now y'all gonna go by a knife. When i put in my order when we're done with the show i'll be behind all of y'all take me three years to get in. It is our annual adoption special. And you are the star of this show just the willingness to tell your story and if you're thinking to yourself well i could never tell my story just remember. You're not telling your story for any reason other than that. There's somebody else out there that when they hear it it's going to change. Their behavior is going to become an adoptive parent. They're going to place their child for adoption. they're going to be proud that they were adopted. Your story is going to help someone else out. Trust me bill europe. Tell your story sir michael. my story was a bit different. It started in nineteen fifty two in yokohama japan. I was an orphan in obscure orphanage in yokohama. And an army lieutenant and his wife were looking to adopt a child and they saw me sitting in the middle of the play ground in a dirty playground. singing jesus loves me in japanese They were intrigued and they decided to look my background and see about adopting me with they did and that set into motion Interesting life Being a child of a army officer we were located three different times in germany and we lived in various bases all over the country and I think it was a god thing. I am a christian. And i believe strongly that god Directs our lives and i think that they adopted me To become a christian. Become a deacon in my church which i am and i just think I think it's very interesting my background because had they not come along i probably would have been raised a japanese or sudden and My life.

As a social contract of of companies employees has shifted and the balance of capital has really rewarded taking a risk. I think it's it's really in.

"High at one for police station. We We'd ask Jeff we had a speaker on China and Asia that grants visas professor at Beijing University and older older of a great book which is really a quick greeting driven understanding about China which is called the one hour channel Hannibal so thank you Jimmy disquisition Jeffrey now pleasure to be here. Thank you so let's start from urology actually actually get you know to study the Chinese Market Economy Ellison your story I just a sort of international international business guy doing a lot of deal stuff's out of the Middle East and slowly started doing more with Asia this is good fifteen eighteen years ago and I was sort of half in the developing world in half in the US and it was pretty clear that Asia was the place to be early early on and China and Asia was just going to be a huge story so I was kind of on the ground is pretty obvious what's going to happen so I started focusing more and more on China Asia and I've been doing that ever since I still keep about half my time in China half my time in the US which is just an endless opportunity 'cause there's always new stuff to do and it's also pretty enjoyable lights so that's kind of where I settled days one foot in China one foot in the US which is gets more and more more interesting every single year absolutely of course suitable also to see all the things and the differences and similarities between Howelsen Woodson the the landscaper right now that the most interesting backup tech companies probably messy before for for a few years and I guess your good spectator and also protagonist of these which is interesting so and then in the book you actually mentioned seeks Mega trends that shape than actually are s shaping China in the Chinese economy. I am looked at those make sense. Can you give us just a short as an option about Those ones will be this is a CO author author. Jonathan Mackenzie we know China's confusing and there's a lot going on. It's a big place very complicated and what we did is we sorta pointed. Look at least major economic trends happening that our long-term these. Are you know thirty forty year trends if you if you I can understand those a lot of the chaos becomes a lot more understandable and so the trends. We started to look at where things that were driving. The revenue are the cost structures of companies and out of that we we identified sort of six number one. We is urban as ation just the fact that in China reopened to the world nineteen eighty about eighty percent of the population west farms and twenty percent in this city which is usually pretty much the inverse of most developed countries I so there's just been a steady movement of people into cities which is still happening today. That creates a lot of economic drives. We also like to things like manufacturing manufacturing scale just a lot of money capital rising Chinese consumers which is something that's really become important in the last five to ten years. I digital China and then what we call brainpower behemoths which is just there's there's more and more people with advanced degrees. China's not liking us to be in nineteen ninety minutes engineers and PhD's and artists and a lot of advanced skills now so we kind of looked at those six EXC trends and that that's held up pretty well over time. This little model used a lot of most of the major companies. You see are writing one or two of those trends so so far it's held up. Its minimum four to five years so we'll see but I think it's pretty solid most of those. Things are going on for at least another decade gate if not longer and then we'll say interesting. What time do you think it will be really going on a steeler in the in in the next I mean of course the Sikhs Mega as you said that we would be going on or thirty four thirty forty years but some of them really started the banking the against inspecting the eighties so those spence that you see losing momentum and which ones are the ones that I really any moment I can get. You know it'd be nice to from your side perspective random in the ones that were easier to predict where urbanization manufacturing shrink capital just a lot of money because it's just been steadily narrowing. I mean it's literally a linear line. Just dry nineteen eighty two today and it's just a stray raid law. The ones were little more unpredictable. Were rising Chinese consumers which you know they were not really an economic factor ten years years ago. People didn't talk about Chinese consumers ten years ago. They weren't buying much even know they had income and savings well. That's changed dramatically in the last five to ten years now. It's the world's largest market for audio for gaming offline gaming cinema movies and one industry after the next day become the largest argest marketplace or in the top two so that one's sort of a late bloomer and then digital China which is one of our six is the most unpredictable acas crazy stuff happens all the time most of the China. The digital consumer stories really about consumers. I'm sure most of the digital China's story is mostly about consumers honors. that's where things are really happening. Fast Alibaba ten send social media all that that's a lot of China who turn out are almost almost entirely digital creatures. You know you can't talk about Chinese consumers without talking digital anymore. Everything happens on a smartphone. That's probably the most awesome predictable one but it's moving quick now each missing and you said at the beginning knitting these bedding posted to stress out because a steeler for many people. China is blocked by the very complex set county which is a male of many classes as you. I liking the in the book but did the digital megatrend like Internet Essa changed in China lagged in terms of society consumers would seeing now consumers is his main. Everyone knows a lot of them. That's not a big surprise. Everybody knows that they're rising in their wells. I think the part that gets under appreciated is how complicated they are. China's is arguably the world's most complicated consumer market now it is just you can look at thirty million. Chinese consumers live in caves. You can find Chinese consumers in the far west. Were you got several hundred million of them. That looked like a different country. You go to downtown Beijing. You get more billionaires in Beijing in New York City so there's a huge fragmentation and complexity to them. and it's just getting more so because you know there's a lot of them so we get a lot of anything you're. GonNa they get a lot of complexity and to you still get this big spread between very very developed market behavior like Beijing and Shanghai and you know okay that's out in the field and in the mountains and so you know it's just this hugely complicated subject in the only way you can really understand and Chinese consumers at this point. Is You have to go small. You have to study micro populations Chinese moms sports enthusiasts inland consumers DADS. You have to break it up that way and you find out people are very different YEP. He in Buca Luke Action Yields Twilight one point which I found very interesting in Sao actually people consume the consumption of the Internet sites okay to be more intense or for for Chinese especially young people compared to two west Westerners and is it something that it's still valid today. I mean they still like more time spent on the Internet on digital devices compared to the West Yeah basically I mean everyone knew that was going to be a lot of people with smartphones mark bones in China. That was pretty predictable. Seeing the same thing in India Indonesia places like that. I think what surprised people was how enthusiastic they are they just doc things faster than other countries APP mobile apps off like crazy and they they spend more time online than other consumers in other countries. They contribute more they post more. They add content more so just turns out they. Are you know some of the world's most enthusiastic netizens are Chinese. You know that wasn't necessarily predictable but it's true the other thing to keep even mind. Is You know there's a difference between regular consumers who go down to the supermarket by apples and online consumers because the online consumers effectively operate like network you know it's not just one person that person's sharing with another person sharing their interconnected and if you have three hundred million Americans or three hundred fifty million Americans. There's a certain number of connections. You'll get between them. When you have a billion Chinese consumers. It's actually exponentially financially larger so digital. China effectively operates like a network and it's very rapid very vibrant so so that part is sort of showing itself when you see a new aspect off in China. It goes for nothing to a hundred million users in two months three months now. We don't see that anywhere else that I've seen right and I thought it was interesting to see. Nowadays is a bit of a bads in the marketing world because they said these schools that the talk which they claim to be combated in like in social media space by finding because they sort of in some cases compare the metrics the users acquisition of blood from Lake that we the we we waste about a dozen the make in some ways. It's much sense because as you said I mean it's very eat steady easy to the up went up Atlanta actually they they might get Eddie began than median us so I think it very important to the seldom understanding of China and when he just something he's also that in China that he said that the phenomenon of a super APPs which is something that we didn't yet I guess seeing though in the in the West which makes me think that of course intend as technology China's evolved by looking at you know how Western companies any state companies work actual of the since it was more a I think a couple of years ago looking more in depth at the by do business business model but what I found interest with that right now recently they company like by do is not just a coping a something like a company that Google but actually innovating each way so it's waiting its own innovations as many things actually will will doesn't ever as well as always interesting to see these scandal. I mean what we'll do. They will you see on that standpoint. How does that look like right now. In China China obviously from the West and use any of combining the yeah I mean it's most people in I'd say the United States they got on the Internet by PC. You sit at home. You have your laptop your desktop. They discovered g mail than a couple years. Slater discovered youtube and they slowly adapted various tools over time that didn't happen in China. People basically joined around two thousand nine in two thousand ten only on their smartphones mostly. There were some users before that was very small and they got all these tools at once you know they went from nothing thing to. I've got a smartphone. I can do messaging. I do online video like drawing gaming so they kind of jumped in the deep end of the pool and they've only know the Internet on smartphones and the difference between a smartphone in a P. C. Is One you you work at home your office and then you leave the other one you carry with you all day long so they carry these around all day they message they take photos they watch videos all of that and one of the things that it was different early on people don't use email you send an email to someone in China. You better wait a week. 'cause permanent going to check their email. It was all about messaging so it started out with messaging with Q in that led to we chat and then from there they added payment which Allie pay in and we chat wallet and once you had messaging in and we chat take mobile payments set up that enabled you know e commerce to happen on your your phone anywhere you happen to be during your day that was the basis of the Super App and it turns out people just live on their smartphones. It becomes sort of the operating operating system for your life but we didn't see any of those three steps in the US you know people weren't living on WHATSAPP as much. Although they kind of are now they were using email they didn't adopt mobile payments because they were using credit cards which worked fine not awesome but they were functional and then e commerce..

It's the world's largest market for audio for gaming offline gaming cinema movies and one industry after the next day become the largest argest marketplace or in the top two so that one's sort of a late bloomer and then digital China which is one of our six is the most unpredictable acas crazy stuff happens all the time most of the China. The digital consumer stories really about consumers. I'm sure most of the digital China's story is mostly about consumers honors. that's where things are really happening. Fast Alibaba ten send social media all that that's a lot of China who turn out are almost almost entirely digital creatures. You know you can't talk about Chinese consumers without talking digital anymore. Everything happens on a smartphone. That's probably the most awesome predictable one but it's moving quick now each missing and you said at the beginning knitting these bedding posted to stress out because a steeler for many people. China is blocked by the very complex set county which is a male of many classes as you. I liking the in the book but did the digital megatrend like Internet Essa changed in China lagged in terms of society consumers would seeing now consumers is his main. Everyone knows a lot of them. That's not a big surprise. Everybody knows that they're rising in their wells. I think the part that gets under appreciated is how complicated they are. China's is arguably the world's most complicated consumer market now it is just you can look at thirty million. Chinese consumers live in caves. You can find Chinese consumers in the far west. Were you got several hundred million of them. That looked like a different country. You go to downtown Beijing. You get more billionaires in Beijing in New York City so there's a huge fragmentation and complexity to them. and it's just getting more so because you know there's a lot of them so we get a lot of anything you're. GonNa they get a lot of complexity and to you still get this big spread between very very developed market behavior like Beijing and Shanghai and you know okay that's out in the field and in the mountains and so you know it's just this hugely complicated subject in the only way you can really understand and Chinese consumers at this point. Is You have to go small. You have to study micro populations Chinese moms sports enthusiasts inland consumers DADS. You have to break it up that way and you find out people are very different YEP. He in Buca Luke Action Yields Twilight one point which I found very interesting in Sao actually people consume the consumption of the Internet sites okay to be more intense or for for Chinese especially young people compared to two west Westerners and is it something that it's still valid today. I mean they still like more time spent on the Internet on digital devices compared to the West Yeah basically I mean everyone knew that was going to be a lot of people with smartphones mark bones in China. That was pretty predictable. Seeing the same thing in India Indonesia places like that. I think what surprised people was how enthusiastic they are they just doc things faster than other countries APP mobile apps off like crazy and they they spend more time online than other consumers in other countries. They contribute more they post more. They add content more so just turns out they. Are you know some of the world's most enthusiastic netizens are Chinese. You know that wasn't necessarily predictable but it's true the other thing to keep even mind. Is You know there's a difference between regular consumers who go down to the supermarket by apples and online consumers because the online consumers effectively operate like network you know it's not just one person that person's sharing with another person sharing their interconnected and if you have three hundred million Americans or three hundred fifty million Americans. There's a certain number of connections. You'll get between them. When you have a billion Chinese consumers. It's actually exponentially financially larger so digital. China effectively operates like a network and it's very rapid very vibrant so so that part is sort of showing itself when you see a new aspect off in China. It goes for nothing to a hundred million users in two months three months now. We don't see that anywhere else that I've seen right and I thought it was interesting to see. Nowadays is a bit of a bads in the marketing world because they said these schools that the talk which they claim to be combated in like in social media space by finding because they sort of in some cases compare the metrics the users acquisition of blood from Lake that we the we we waste about a dozen the make in some ways. It's much sense because as you said I mean it's very eat steady easy to the up went up Atlanta actually they they might get Eddie began than median us so I think it very important to the seldom understanding of China and when he just something he's also that in China that he said that the phenomenon of a super APPs which is something that we didn't yet I guess seeing though in the in the West which makes me think that of course intend as technology China's evolved by looking at you know how Western companies any state companies work actual of the since it was more a I think a couple of years ago looking more in depth at the by do business business model but what I found interest with that right now recently they company like by do is not just a coping a something like a company that Google but actually innovating each way so it's waiting its own innovations as many things actually will will doesn't ever as well as always interesting to see these scandal. I mean what we'll do. They will you see on that standpoint. How does that look like right now. In China China obviously from the West and use any of combining the yeah I mean it's most people in I'd say the United States they got on the Internet by PC. You sit at home. You have your laptop your desktop. They discovered g mail than a couple years. Slater discovered youtube and they slowly adapted various tools over time that didn't happen in China. People basically joined around two thousand nine in two thousand ten only on their smartphones mostly. There were some users before that was very small and they got all these tools at once you know they went from nothing thing to. I've got a smartphone. I can do messaging. I do online video like drawing gaming so they kind of jumped in the deep end of the pool and they've only know the Internet on smartphones and the difference between a smartphone in a P. C. Is One you you work at home your office and then you leave the other one you carry with you all day long so they carry these around all day they message they take photos they watch videos all of that and one of the things that it was different early on people don't use email you send an email to someone in China. You better wait a week. 'cause permanent going to check their email. It was all about messaging so it started out with messaging with Q in that led to we chat and then from there they added payment which Allie pay in and we chat wallet and once you had messaging in and we chat take mobile payments set up that enabled you know e commerce to happen on your your phone anywhere you happen to be during your day that was the basis of the Super App and it turns out people just live on their smartphones. It becomes sort of the operating operating system for your life but we didn't see any of those three steps in the US you know people weren't living on WHATSAPP as much. Although they kind of are now they were using email they didn't adopt mobile payments because they were using credit cards which worked fine not awesome but they were functional
