NYT Reporter Kyle Buchanan Discusses the Lack of Diversity in the Golden Globes
"About the Golden Globe Awards. So, he said, it's just 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. Paris Press, not a single black member. When you look at the nominees, it's Golden Globes so white It's 2021. Why Is this persisting within the Hollywood foreign press? You know? Well, the Hollywood Foreign press is an extremely insular bunch. You know, the reporting in the L A Times and in the New York Times this past week has a zoo revealed that several foreign journalists you know, over the years have tried to enter this group. And have been pushed out. In fact, it almost seems like the more legitimate the journalists. The worst. Your chances are of getting to this organization, perhaps because they were You know, worried about this kind of expo? Say, um wide. Are they still making while choices Because they are a wild bunch. You know, I've met Nick Those voters. They're eccentric to put it mildly, and they really thrive. On this kind of, you know, glamour and this this feeling that they are a pivotal step on the way to Oscar and they're not willing to give up any of that influence. In fact, they try toe. You know, only expanded, but they do so in such a weird way because they are secretive. In a way, you know, there's there's not They're not. They're not out there while they are out there, you know, rubbing shoulders shaking hands took himself fees. Um, if you want to define the list of their membership, that's when the H F P A really starts to clam up because they're not representing the best and brightest of global entertainment journalism far from it there, representing Maybe the savviest and canniest people in awards season that's more their speed than been trying Tost ablest any sort of legitimate credentials. The people who make up that group. So in terms of them being homogeneous, it sounds like they don't really might not particularly care. Well, yeah, I mean, they are homogeneous in the sense that there are no black voters, which is a kind of insane thing in the year. 2021. Obviously we know that Academy, which votes on the Oscars, has been taking sweeping steps over the last few years diversify its membership, which was primarily older, white and male. Gloves have not taken any such steps. And while they are somewhat divers to be Primarily rewarding American movies. To the extent that even a film like denarii, which is American, is shunted off to the foreign film category simply because it's characters often speak Korean That is indicating that ah, wide gulf between what you're covering and what you are what you look like what you're made of who makes up this group. And I think you know if they're going to purport to speak about this industry and who deserves reward with any sort of authority, and you know it's questionable sometimes whether they do or don't have it. And they have to absolutely take a look at themselves. I guess it kind of Buchanan. We're talking to him. He's the award season columnist for The New York Times. The Golden Globes are this Sunday. So here's a bright spot. Best director for motion picture category. There are more women than men nominated several fennel for promising young woman, Regina King for one night in Miami and Chloe Jiao for Nomad Land. Do you think this is the year we could see a best director Everett at the Globes of the Oscars. I do think so. You know, I'm sure the eight FDA would much rather we focus on that category than any other And certainly, you know, I mean, such as the story of award shows and often is the story of, you know, America generally that you have progress in one respect and then two steps backward somewhere else. But, yes, it was only a couple years ago that Natalie Portman was introducing the best director category is the Golden Globes. And very pointedly said Here are the five all male nominees this year that can't be said. In fact, there's a majority of women and I do expect that Chloe job for Nomad Land will prevail even if no man land doesn't take best drama, although it has a very good shot at that. Globes and not going to miss their opportunity to reward a woman. A person of color. She will be the first woman to win the best director trophy from them since Barbara Streisand for gentle Wow. He just kicked it back far for me

How Writer Lesl Honor Knows Poetry Changes Lives
"I think you for doing this. Thank you for having me. It's just such an honor to be asked and awful. What is the first poem you ever think. The first time. I was something in first grade and i think it was about a bird and my dad helped me practices into it for talent. Show or my very catholics old There was always a good talent shone catholic schools. And was there. Anyone who said who. This girl hasn't my seventh grade teacher was like you're really good writer and i was like that's nice and my mom and dad told me i have to be an attorney or doctor and then high school. I had some really great teachers who were like. This is what you should do. This is really really good. I thought about it from they're like well. Maybe it's something. nba can do this. I could be a writer writers. I love Invented just kind of unfolded. When i got to college And there were so many people that were so supportive of my writing and poetry and just teaching me how to be in that space En- just happened to what i wanted to say authentically in kind of tune out. What a lot of the other influences are other writers. I think growing up in the nineties. I wanted to talk about identity a lot. I mean it wasn't until the late nineties until we even had something in the census that allowed you to be biracial. So i would always get the questions what are you. What are you You know just very rude. Comments often feeling not enough of one of the other affiliate black enough not mexican enough. So i wrote about my identity and how i felt. Your dad is black. His new orleans. Your mom born in mexico immigrated here when she was fifteen had it those cultures. How were they playing out at home. It's lovely. I love my kids. Identify appalachian in that that even have that term to identify with my oldest daughter who is brown and we talk about how we are mirror images of each other's experience where i fought a lot to inform people of my identity as a black woman. She does the opposite to inform people of dot and so we talk about that a lot and she really pushes me to see how the world sees me had well. She's her an how they see her as black. I and how they typically see as the enough i in. What does that mean about how we move in spaces. It's a salvatori household. I think i get that. From both of my cultures. We do often that for the announcement. Those in then we have gumbo. For new year's we are very lucky to be able to tap into so many different parts of us. How would didn't play. Though when you were growing up oh my pearson talk about race. It was not a forward conversation properly until the rodney king riots. Now sophomore in high school and my father at the time was working for the lapd and so we. We did not have a conversation. The way i have with my kids about race ethnicity identity how the world sees you ought to be prepared for and then maybe around my sophomore year in high school right before the rise of doing a lot of reading and read the biography malcolm x. I say that radicalized much split on my activism button that has never been turned off since then it's pretty much in succession than the riots happened. An stuff was bubbling in. La before ride became there was a lot of tension between black and korean communities in los angeles and stuff. It wasn't something that happened out of nowhere. It it definitely was arise that shifted allots. That shifted a conversation. I never knew. My dad was locked in his apartment during the watts riots. We had never had that conversation before.
China steps up threats to reclaim Taiwan
"China's rise as a great power it showing more and more attention towards reclaiming territory that long regarded as its own witness. Beijing's conduct in the south china sea. The east china sea hong kong the himalayan border with india. And of course. Taiwan fifteen chinese planes were detected flying into taiwan southwest air defense identification zone or on sunday taiwan's ministry of national defense said sunday's incursion involved twelve fighter jets to anti-submarine aircraft and reconnaissance plane. This comes less than twenty four hours. After the people's liberation army air force flew thirteen combat aircraft including chinese bomber planes capable of carrying nuclear weapons into the same region that was from the south korean english language. Every rung account of china's recent intimidation of the lovely liberal democracy of nearly twenty four million people. now one of my guest today has warned the australian defence department. Beijing is highly likely to attempt to take over taiwan using all means short of war as early as twenty. Twenty four ponder that a chinese takeover of taiwan by twenty twenty four. Linda jacobson is the specialist who delivered this assessment to the morrison government. A few months ago linder is founding director and deputy chair of china matters and she joins us from finland. Hello linda welcome back to between the lines. Thank you for having me again. Tom and joining us in sydney. Is natasha qassam. A research fellow at the low institute by the natasha. Thanks for having me tom now. Linda recently published. China matter explores policy brief. Summarize succinctly or faces tom. We've been talking for a long time. That taiwan is possibly explosive issue in our region. I'm saying it again now. Because the president xi jinping has made it clear that contrary to his predecessors he does not think we can leave the unresolved political status of taiwan to future generations. He wants to see movement towards what the chinese say reunification of the mainland and taiwan during his lifetime. That's the first point. The second one is that as of late. Probably because of some of the recent events which you alluded to among others the pfc's actions in hong kong. There's been a lot of talk of war of outright military conflict between taiwan and the pfc. I think these media reports have the problem into the wrong perspective. I think it is unlikely that we will see outright war over taiwan's future but we are very likely to see beijing making a move which is a protractive extensive intensive campaign of pressure using all means short of war to bring the taiwanese political leadership to its knees and agree to negotiate nothing more without preconditions taiwanese leadership has already said they will negotiate. But the pfc wants to negotiate on the basis that there is only one china in other words in negotiations have to end in some sort of agreement about unification so that's in a nutshell is what the policy brief argues. We should appear for this kind of extensive intensive pressure campaign using all means short of a case. i'm not. She heard linda's assessment. There of the chinese threat to taiwan china's military invasion of taiwan's unlikely. Highly unlikely so expect by gene to launch a step by step coercion of taiwan using all main short of war to force taiwan's latest into negotiations to etc unification natasha. What's your response. I'm inclined to agree with linda that this kind of phased coercion with many policy measures that china can easily scale up is the most likely scenario are and we can already see that happening. We can already see china attempting to launch multiple cyber attacks in taiwan to economically co west taiwan to try to put pressure intensive media coverage and even to infiltrate some of those local level groups to try to tan politics in a different way in taiwan. All these measures today have been relatively unsuccessful. China made it very clear that they wa against the current president citing win and that they were going to punish the taiwanese for her. These kinds of measures only encouraged the taiwanese people the vast majority of which do not want to be a part of china to turn out in support and fight to when last year. And at the same time we've also seen the country really come together during this covid nineteen pandemic and we've seen a really incredible of trust in institutions and in that democratic system of government. In a way that perhaps we haven't seen in other countries so i'm inclined to agree with these being the right measures but on the other hand i would say that the military option very much remains on the table not perhaps in the short term but from china's the incredible buildup of the people's liberation army that we've seen over the past decade has very much been directed at a potential taiwan

Interview With Author, Lynne Bertrand
"So then. What book hooked you. It's a great question. I was Sense the info on this question you know just that we could interpreted however we wanted to and i thought to myself. I'm not sure it was a hook. It was more of a net because a lot of reading in my childhood that was just part of the culture. I grew up in Partly just The nature of life before a lot of screens And then partly because i grew up in the family of a A fairly religious family so we were people of the book like anybody. Who's you know. grows up in that. You know that the buckets. In our case the bible but in other cases i think of the korean or you know the torah people reading and memorizing parts of books and becoming sort of accustomed to the idea that the book in some way is your life and your belief system and your and your way of understanding the world so there was that and then aside from any religious interpretations of the book the narrative structure of all those books in the old and new testaments or the first and second testament is really interesting stuff but then beyond that i I wanted to choose. A book called my family and other animals by gerald durrell. Who actually d'oro if you're british and incorrect. Which is the story of. It's one of many books that the zoologist durrell wrote As part of his Recollections about his life in zoology and this one is his early years on the island of corfu When he was there with his family and his brother. Lawrence still is a Novelist he wrote the alexandria quartet which will probably show up later in this interview. Because you'll ask me what series. I've never finished but gerald was Delicious writer funny kind of a smart aleck and really Captured not only his life in the field and mountains of coffee. Which is a greek island. collecting like rose beatles magpies and puppies and wall lizards and stuff but also the stories of his family. Being completely intolerable and arrogant. And you know with all their crazy foibles. Carry charming book. And i realized that if he could write like that then this could be really fun to read all my life and where in your life did you read this book. I well when i was about eight years old eight nine ten years old I used to go to new hampshire to stay with my grandparents and we were permitted because again it was a time when life look different. We were permitted to just take ourselves downtown and go anywhere we wanted and you know just as kids and we used to do things that we remembered from our summers like by a hamster you think their parents would never let us to and my grandparents just gave us a long leash least at all so i went to the bookstore all the time. There is a prep school town. I was not that kid. We were not that kind of wealthy but we had full access to the prep school bookstore. And i bought this book just thinking the cover was interesting. And i'm actually holding it in my hand. It is completely destroyed taped together with masking tape. It's Aqua the way everything was in nineteen seventy three or whatever that was and it was covered with all these crazy looking animals from that time. Sort of a collage and it has the typefaces that you would recognize from that era. So i And i read it in secret thinking that because it had some swears in it probably getting in trouble and was that sort of common use you were having to sneak books From your parents were your parents very today. Kind of investigate what. You're reading a frequently to make sure it was clean. Yeah no it's a great question. My parents are very liberal in their In their interpretation of what would be considered you know dogma but the The churches that i grew up in were more conservative so i was pretty careful. I mean that was the same era. As are you there. God it's me margaret. And you know i mean. There were things coming out that we're pretty controversial. Nothing like what. I've written and nothing like anybody else's writing now but But at that time it was you had to be kind of careful

Chang-rae Lee on His New Novel: Its Kind of a Crazy Book.
"Chang. Rae lee joins us now. His new novel is called my year. Abroad chang thanks for being here by pebble. See you are joining us from hawaii. Which leads to an obvious question. What are you doing in hawaii. Other than carrying out. Perhaps every quarantined person. Who's not in hawaii corentin fantasy. Well there are plenty of those people here. Those ex-pats well. We try to come every year income last year because long ago i was the writer in residence at the punahou school barack obama's old school and a lot of other famous folks and we had a wonderful year friends on the faculty Miss seeing them so we do the usual things. Eat a lot of asian food like the body board. Wow yeah i think now any any or spiring authors like putting this on their list of aspirations onto like to be the writer in residence at obama's old school so my year abroad is your first novel since on such a full sea which came out in twenty fourteen. Did you start this book immediately. After on such a full sea do tend to start your novels before the new one comes out. I'm curious how you kind of work that well. I started probably about a nine months afterwards. Attended a waiting period as it were before. I start something in earnest because i don't write short fiction. Sometimes i write short on fictional Essays about me my family but but with a novel. The commitment is so great. And i know the road ahead will be difficult. So it's really hard for me to get to committing to a book. I'll sketch you know three or four different versions of a book on. Sometimes they're different books for the first six to nine months sort of a thing on doing right now and then. Finally i'll bland on one and decide yes. This is the one that i think. I can sustain that may be consistency. Well it was going to ask. What is your starting point with a new novel. But maybe i'll change to. What are your starting points like is it. The is at a premise. Or a challenge to yourself as a writer. It's actually a diverse range of things. Sometimes it's a character and right now. I'm working on like maybe three or four things. It's a premise. I like this idea about the summer camp. That went do that was for korean. Kids only green christian kids. Then sometimes it's atone a lotta times. I've i've felt as if starting a new novel. That's kind of a reaction or response to what i been doing before. And so i just wanna change of mood change of a certain kind of sound and maybe that's something that has followed me throughout my work especially at the inception stages a certain kind of sound overtakes me and either. That's personal voice for the character or the narrative voice or even just the kind of atmosphere mood of the piece of what i think the world of the novel be. And then i'll i'll just around with that for a while. I wanna talk about that certain kinds of sound and also the reaction to on such a full sea but i have to pause and ask you about that camp. What was that camp was that in the. Us it was. I grew up in in new york in the city and then in the suburbs so it was a camp that was run by an association of korean churches in the state area so for two weeks. Every summer from the time i was five years. Old to ice think was probably fourteen. Maybe thirteen fourteen. It definitely didn't go past there because they didn't want real teens at the camp because they didn't want to invite a different set of problems right because it was a church base camp so they all got together and i guess rented a camp for two weeks north of westchester. I think putnam county somewhere. I can't even remember where it was may be brewster and so for two weeks this place and it was a very low in camp. You know there. There were no jet skis or no horses. There was hardly any fields. Basically there was a volleyball net and just kind of a high grass in really spare unheated cabins with barely running water. But i tell you it was some of the best times i've ever had also has camps. Go they introduce you do all the problems of the world but on a scale that you know the kids kids can understand jealousy corruption out just all kinds of things that go on but but the funny thing about it was. It was my time for two weeks to to be with only korean kids. In american kids was out by your parents sent you like. Did they want to kind of help. You reinforce in an affirm. Your identity is a korean american. I think that was their hope and they weren't religious people so so even though there was a bible study element to the camp. That was the part that we all didn't want to Kind of slacked on but yeah. I think they were absolutely hoping that. I would connect with other kids not speak the language because we none of us really spoke korean because many of us didn't come from an ethnic enclave saying in queens or something and so as i did in westchester did not grow up with any other gets all so it was our time. We'll read about this summer camp. I hope in your next novel. Hopefully it'll be one of the threads that you're currently working on that wins out. 'cause i'm i find that fascinating but to get to the novel my year abroad. Tell us a little bit about it. And then i want to talk about in. What way is it was kind of a reaction to on such a full sea. Well it's a kind of a crazy book in particularly. I think for people who know my work. It was sort of a surprise. you know. i'm sure my editor was surprised by what she got in quite describe it the way it turned out but It's a book about twenty year old college kid who's at loose ends in every way in his life not very moored in his comfortable but drab suburban existence than he meets up with a local entrepreneur. A chinese fellow. who's not quite chinese-american. He's really just chinese but has made a big time life in the suburb in new jersey and has businesses all over the world than this young man named tiller gets taken up by him and they go travelling together and i guess they have what might fall business adventures but those adventures get quite intense. I would say

The Problem with California's Ethnic Studies
"A controversial curriculum for teaching ethnic studies. In california's public schools will face a final vote in march. Since the first draft of the curriculum came out in two thousand nineteen a coalition of jewish organizations including the american jewish committees. California team has worked together to fine tune the content to be more inclusive define anti semitism and avoid perpetuating the stereotypes that put jews endanger here to talk about the debate surrounding the california curriculum. And why it matters to. All of us is rabbi serena. Eisenberg director of ajc northern california serena welcomed people of the pod for having me so exactly. What is california's ethnic studies curriculum. A start back in two thousand sixteen when the california state. Legislators passed a law. Mandating that the state department of education developed a guidance document for the teachers and administrators so they could implement ethnic studies courses and schools and the reason was because in california students of color account for the majority of the population in our public schools. They speak about ninety different languages so the goal was to prepare pupils to be global citizens with an appreciation for the contributions of multiple cultures. Ajc supported that effort. We believe that k. Through twelve students across california should be able to learn the role of ethnicity race and religion in the life of all of the citizens including maybe even especially those groups have been largely left out of other textbooks and so high quality. Ethnic studies courses can help combat bigotry. He'll some of the really difficult. Racial and ethnic divisions we are facing in this country so whereas we support an inclusive and balanced approach to ethnic studies. What some might call multicultural or constructive. Ethnic studies which focuses on the contributions and challenges of a broad array of ethnic cultures. What happened with the california curriculum. Was that state. Department of education appointed a small advisory committee of teachers who are committed to something called critical ethnic studies. The critical studies association was formed in two thousand eleven with a specific goal of radical resistance. It was anti-capitalist anti-imperialist somewhat neo marxist ideology and this group was what guided the development of the very controversial first draft of the curriculum which was released in two thousand and nineteen. What was controversial about that first draft. The first problem was that it lacked balance running through the entire curriculum. The goal was promoting this narrow critical. Ethnic studies ideology the los angeles times. Editorial board wrote that the curriculum talks about critical thinking but usually offers one side and one side. Only it's more about imposing predigested political views on students than about widening their perspectives. That was the los angeles editorial board. So a second problem was that it was an inclusive. We talked about more multicultural approach which looks at the diversity of olive our california population but this curriculum actually left out a lot of groups including sikhs hindus. Korean syrians armenians jewish americans. It had a very small focus on particular groups and because of that. Ajc formed a multi-ethnic coalition with a number of other ethnic groups to ask for a more inclusive curriculum one lack balance to not inclusive. but three. and. I think what was so outrageous. It really contained a lot of offensive material. There are some examples of antisemitic material the material and even more so material that wasn't even included for example a really extensive glossary in a curriculum. That's designed to combat discrimination didn't include a definition of anti-semitism. This was released just after the shooting and powei so the jewish community was particularly eager to see that anti semitism was going to be taught about in an ethics studies curriculum for california. Was there any kind of explanation as to why anti semitism was left out of the first draft. This paradigm of critical ethnic studies sees the world through a lens of people of color and whites oppressed and oppressors and in that paradigm jews are considered to be white and of course we know jews have a complicated identity managers of color. Many jews meese rothley were middle eastern origin huge number of persian jews in california and so unfortunately the curriculum just consider jesus whites and focused only on four groups of people of color that would be african. Americans latinos native americans and asian americans.
Feminine Leadership, Self care, And Fundraising For BIPOC Founders
"Everyone is really great to be here. My name is jamie kim. I'm a coach it bit. And i'm also the creator of the third. A group coaching experience for women. A lot of my inspiration for the third came from my clients bunny in tehran. They told me how much they were needing a meaningful productive base with women just like them and not really being able to find it by are found is a bloom. A company that i believe is out to change the world by changing the way young women experience themselves. I really love what they do. I love how they do. It and their reasons for their pursuit to me. They're really great. Example of the dynamic twenty-first-century leader. That i feel like the world needs so much more of right now and bunny. Turner here with me today. So i've been looking forward to having this conversation with. You both knew what we're going to talk about means a lot to me personally like what's it like to be a woman of color founder today. What's the importance of feminine leadership and why carrying for the self is actually essential but before we begin i thought it would be kind of fun and different to share with our audience who we come from. So i come from sunshine. Kin and jill kim there. My parents both korean. And i'm a first generation korean canadian. My father's selection who also often goes by j grew up in tokyo japan and he had to hide his korean identity for survival while he was there. That experience had a really big affect on him. In fact he ended up writing a book about it growing up. My father always encouraged me to see the other side. He often explicitly may do that. Which i didn't always appreciate in the moment but now i'm so glad that he did. My mother gave herself than in coca when she emigrated to canada. She grew up in korea. The eldest daughter of six and didn't get to pursue a higher education. She was arranged to marry my dad when she was nineteen and the year after that she had my mother. She worked a full-time job. Kept our home together. We'll also taking care of my grandparents who ended up immigrating to canada soon. After we did. Wouldn't they see her. I learned what it means to care for others through your actions. My parents my ancestors they really had to master the art of adapting and working with whatever they have and that makes me really proud of who i come from. What about you in tarrant. who do you come from. I'm sharon and i come from Sarah who come. From bob estate in northern india and my parents are also bunnies parents as where sisters sisters on co-founders life jamie's parents. My parents are both immigrants and also entrepreneurs. They emigrated to canada in their early twenties as newlyweds. And when i was growing up. I saw my father working two full time jobs and i remember waiting up till one. Am sometimes at the top of the stairs for him to come home from work because sometimes it was the only time in the day i saw him but despite how hard they worked they still did everything they could to be there for us be amazing parents and to ensure that we receive the education that they didn't and so as an entrepreneur. Today i draw from the strength of their teachings and also from the wisdom of my grandparents who live with me growing up who also raised me all of these people did not have formal educations but they always worked hard and they were connected deeply too. I feel they were connected deeply to the world around them the earth and they taught me presence today i'm also co founder of blue and a big part of what led to creating gloom was finding out how many girls were actually missing school in india back home due to their period. Many girls are missing. Almost a quarter of their schooling which led to dropping out early. The economic impact of that is insane So just kind of thinking about the fact that that easily could have been me if my parents didn't immigrate so that's become a really big part of our mission here at bloom gasol. Let's talk about bloom. Could you share the bloom story. Maybe a little bit about how it all began. Yeah so we actually started working on the very first iteration of bloom in two thousand sixteen. I wasn't accounting student. Turn studying law and she had the idea for a monthly delivery service of organic pats town fond after we learned about the harmful ingredients in the mainstream products that we've been using for so long and the lack of access to better for you products in canada. Which is where we live and around that same time as we were kind of diving into exploring this. I was diagnosed with p. c. o. s. Which is something that went. Ten women experience but at the time there wasn't a lot of education or resources to understand more about what that meant. And so we dovan headfirst into this idea of a monthly delivery of organic period products. We were students. We only had a few hundred dollars credit cards and we did everything we could to learn about the sale from high industry. And find a way to
The Magical Language Of Others By E.J. Koh
"And welcome to books and boba a podcast between pittsburgh asian and asian american authors. My name is yet. And i'm re-re you and welcome to our first book club. Discussion of twenty twenty one. We're discussing your january twenty twenty one book club pick the magical language of others by ej co but before we get to the book rear. How has your twenty twenty one going. I mean we talk about this a lot. How time is just like a flat circle and it just feels like january has flown by. It has even though i mean wasn't there a coup. Wasn't there a lot of things happened politically. Obviously but i don't know like everything kind of feels like a fever dream and with the vaccine situation. The it's it's just been constant change degeneracy that antibac- sir shutdown vaccination site now. I did not hear about that. But i did hear about was how we have a how how we have like a vaccine shortage for like more than half of the country and not there's like a new variant of the covid nineteen screen. Yeah it's gotten really bad and it's like a question of of like wilda vaccine be able to stop the symptoms of the new strains and i am trying to stay as calm as possible. I've been staying at home as much as i can. Considering that like now like covid has been happening on the outskirts of inner circle. So it's just like. I'm just i'm just like people. Please stay home because now now it's like right outside my door stop and you're kind of terrified at this point. Well we're here today to talk about our january twenty twenty one book club pick so let's get to it As always as always we're gonna talk all about the book the magical language others so if you haven't read it yet read it i if you don't wanna get spoiled But if you want to listen to us first and then read it. And that's fine to do you. And i would like to give out the trigger warnings of of eating eating disorder suicidal thoughts. I guess like child neglect This there's a lot of sensitive topics in this book. So i would proceed with caution if if you are sensitive to those topics art. So let's get started. A rewrite won't start off with the book jacket description. All right the magical language of others is a powerful and aching love story and letters from mother to daughter after living in america for over a decade g. Cho's parents return to south korea for work leaving fifteen year old and her brother behind in california overnight. G finds herself abandoned and adrift in a world. Made strange by her mother's her mother writes letters in korean over the years seeking forgiveness and love. Letters engy cannot fully understand until she finds them years later hidden in a box as nj. Translate the letters. She looks to history her grandmother. June's ears as a love sick wife and tej on the horrors her grandmother. Kumiko witnessed during the island massacre and to poetry as well as her own lived experience to answer questions inside all of us. So right off the bat. I figure i mean i really enjoyed reading this book I'm not like literally trained person but Ej's pros is really beautiful very descriptive. Very there's a lot of stuff going on and a lot of really like beautiful descriptions. But i know that because i am a son of immigrants and not a daughter especially not a daughter of a korean immigrant. I know that your relation to this story might be a little more deeper than than mine. But what did you. How did you feel about this book. Man i how do i even answer that question. Is i knew that i knew going in that memoir was going to be very difficult for me to read. I'm a very emotional reader for those of you. Who haven't been listening to our podcast for for a while. But when i memoirs are supposed to be personal and it's supposed to tell the story of the author but for me when i was reading. Ej hose book. It seemed like she was holding up a mirror. I guess instead of her instead of just like listening and consuming her story. It felt like i was seeing kind of like this distorted reflection of my own childhood and my own adulthood and like you said like her prose is really gorgeous. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that she is a poet and she knows how to use each word to its maximum effect. Just like an example of her poetic prose. I highlighted a quote from her. I watched the sun come up like an egg cracked open underwater. It's yoke rising with listlessness.

"koreans" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"Google and apple in a very rare case of. Collaboration said that they were going to build a underlying protocol. Which would make it easier for everybody to build these kind of Baluchi APPs that know who's been next. How HUDSON IS THE ECONOMISTS Asia Technology correspondent based in Hong Kong? So far it does not sound like either Google or apple or going to build contact tracing APP themselves instead. What they're doing is they're collaborating to make sure that almost all of the phones in the world can talk to each other using this Bluetooth Protocol. So it's GonNa be a little bit like the Internet the Internet because everybody has agreed on standards to send data around an absolute g mail and Google maps and you know the economist website. They will run on top of those standards and so apple and Google agreed to do exactly the same thing with the Bluetooth Standard so that governments can build contact tracing APPs on top of it. That work really well but some digital phone based contact tracing has already been going on before this right yes. So one of the first countries to do contact tracing through phones in a very intense way with Singapore and they have an ethical trace together and what it does is register contact with everybody else. Who has the APP installed? So if you and I are sitting in a coffee shop and we both have traced together installed. Our phones will send messages to each other in secret. Saying we've seen each other. That information can be shared with the public health authorities if need be if one of US goes on to be infected and the phone receives a signal saying that that person that you saw in the coffee shop. They got infected by doing that. They can sort of try and track the virus as it moves through the population. We want to find every last copy of that virus track it down and isolate the people who have an infection of it until it goes away not everybody that they have been in touch with will get infected. But you know. It's a a better safe than sorry idea. And from the start these discussions around contact tracing through technology. Have a discussion about privacy and this does sound like quite a potential invasion of privacy really depends on the way you do it. It would be very privacy. Invasive if what this APP did was to send your location to a central server run by the government somewhere on the Internet and that that server just collected everybody's view tooth numbers and use them to build a giant database of who had been in contact with WHO that'd be massively invasive but that's not how this system is going to work apple and Google have explicitly built it so that instead of sending those Bluetooth numbers that I identify my phone. Central storage location. They just stay on my phone. The other phones that I see that list stays on. My phone doesn't go anywhere else. It only goes somewhere else if the number of an infected person arrives on my phone from the Central Health Authority and then my phone scams through everyone I've ever met and looks for a match with. That's infected person and it's only if there's a match that my information gets sent off potentially with my consent to the Central Health Authority. That's that's how it's GonNa work in Western countries but in order for that kind of scheme to work at. It would require at least a great many people to have that APP and to to be willing to part with those data. I mean do. Do you think the scheme as laid out could work. I think it could work. But you're right that there's a huge challenge in getting enough people to use the APP for it to be useful. Currently in Singapore about one. Six of the population is using the APP. The most successful version version I've heard of is an op in Iceland which is used by about forty percent of the population. And you know that's not good enough. Even forty percent is not good enough so the problem with the APPS as they exist today is that you have to have your phone screen on all the time if you want to participate and that's very annoying. Drain your battery. The changes the apple. Google making will mean. You don't have to have your phone screen on all the time and so there's lots of things that can be done to kind of make it more pleasant to use the APPS and make it less annoying. Another caveat is that this approach of using Bluetooth through APPs on smartphones inherently by definition only works for fifty percents of the people on the planet. Give or take. There's a full fifty percent of the people that either don't have a phone a tool or a feature phone that doesn't mean it's not worth pursuing it. It's it's worthwhile to bring down infection rates in enrich places but it's just worth considering when you think about how to spend time and resources as a techy or as a community and I suppose the other point is that proximity of two phones is not the same thing as a necessary jumping point four for the virus from one person to another no eight. Absolutely isn't I would say that. What Baluchi is perhaps the sort of the best proceed that it seems possible or even sort of hypothetically feasible to use without being massively in breach of set of principles of privacy and freedom and Civil Liberties but Bluetooth is not going to pick up things like if the virus is traveling in an air conditioning system. Which is possible or even something as simple as I cough on my hand and I put my hand on the rail on the tube and then you walk onto the tube three minutes. Hr and put your hand in the same spot and you get infected. Bluetooth has no idea about that. Because we're not in the same place at the same time but it's still possible that it's helpful and the way in which it can be helpful even though it's not a perfect proxy is if you have enough testing so the only way any of this tracking stuff works the only way that the phones make sense is if there's huge huge huge testing infrastructure. So that means that when the network of phones finds all these contacts of an infected person all of those people can go and be tested if they can't go and be tested or even worse if people who are symptomatic Detested then the network is for nothing. Because there's no positive signal going into it to force the contact tree to find out who else has been infected. And so it's a really important point that for all the cool whizzy tech from apple and Google in the world really means nothing no testing or at the very least if there's not a diagnostic capability from physicians.
