A highlight from 652:BitBoys Ouster, Modis Crypto Vision and Balancers $900k Heist
"Good evening, and welcome to the Crypto Overnight. I'm Nickademus, and I will be your host as we take a look at the latest cryptocurrency news and analysis. So sit back, relax, and let's get started. And remember, none of this is financial advice. And it's 10 p .m. Pacific on Monday, August 28, 2023. Welcome back to the Crypto Overnight, where we have no sponsors, no hidden agendas, and no BS. But we do have the news, so let's talk about that. Tonight, we delve into India's global ambitions for cryptocurrency. We analyze the sinking ship that is friend tech and what it means for the crypto community. Ever heard of BitBoy Crypto? Well, the man behind it is stepping down amid controversies. OnlyFans takes a massive Ethereum hit, but their profits are still soaring. In the DeFi sector, Balancer gets hit with a $900 ,000 exploit. And last but not least, we'll explore how Oman and Laos are taking two divergent paths in the world of crypto mining. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for a global framework on cryptocurrencies. This happened at the G20 summit. India currently holds the G20 presidency. Modi emphasized a unified approach. He said rules should not belong to just one country. He drew parallels with the aviation industry. India has been advocating for this despite its unclear crypto regulations. The country imposed a 30 % tax on crypto gains in 2022. This led to a decline in crypto trading in India. Modi also talked about the broader macroeconomic implications of crypto. He mentioned that the G20 had reached a consensus on crypto matters. India aims to include the African Union in the G20 Crypto Talks. The G20 summit will take place on September 9th and 10th. India's crypto revenues are expected to reach $3 billion in 2027. Modi's call for a global framework was also echoed at a recent gathering of BRICS nations. Modi's call is a significant move. It shows India's growing influence in shaping global crypto policies. Now this is crucial. Why? Because India itself has been a battleground for crypto regulations. The 30 % tax imposed earlier this year led to a decline in crypto activities. Yet Modi is pushing for a unified global approach. That's a strategic move. But let's not forget the timing of this. India holds the G20 presidency. That gives it a unique position to steer global crypto talks. Modi's emphasis on including the African Union is also noteworthy. It shows India's intent to make the G20 more inclusive. That could be a game changer. It could bring more nations into the crypto fold. The G20's consensus on crypto matters is a big deal. It shows that world leaders are taking crypto seriously. They're moving beyond the financial stability talks. They're looking at the broader economic impact. And that's a shift. It could lead to more balanced crypto regulations globally. So what does this mean for us? Well, it's kind of a mixed bag. On the one hand, a global framework could bring clarity. On the other, it could lead to stricter regulations. Either way, the crypto world should keep a close eye on India. It's becoming a key player in shaping the future of global crypto regulations. Where India seeks unity, Frentech faces disunity. The warning signs were there. Transitioning from nations to networks, let's dive into what happens when you neglect due diligence. Don't forget to follow us for more insights.

"Nestled among the crumbling stupas of Laos ancient capital, Luang Prabang, 525 cocktails and tapas, was the city's premier fine dining establishment, serving elevated local cuisine, and perhaps Southeast Asia's yummiest smoked Negroni. Foreign visitors comprised 95% of the restaurant's footfall, and with tourist numbers two Laos breaking records year on year, plus a new high-speed train route due to link the landlocked nation with China's city of kunming to the north, and Singapore to the south, business was looking up. Then the pandemic struck with borders sealed shut, 5 25s British proprietor, Andrew Sykes, had no choice, but to suspend operations, instead pivoting to local clientele by opening new premises in Laos modern capital, Vientiane. The business is going very well, says Sykes, I will reopen in Luang Prabang, but just not quite yet. Laos, flung open its borders to visitors in May, but the uptick in foreign arrivals has been torpid. Many in the hospitality industry hoped that would change following the opening of China's borders on January 8th, given free spending Chinese tourists comprised almost a quarter of the nation's 4.7 million international visitors in 2019. Still, the results have been underwhelming. We're starting to see Chinese customers come in, but it's sub 10% of our business, says Sykes. It's still predominantly Laos with some expats as well. Despite an indeterminate human toll, the sudden end of China's zero COVID policy is an undoubted boon for the global economy.

"Overwhelming conversation we're having. I have to ask you this, it appears that at the Federal Reserve, you're going to be in the market for a new vice chairman. What does she bring to the fed and to the open market committee? How would you characterize her tenure? Well, I don't know what will or won't happen from the administration. But Laos and asset. I mean, she's very smart. She's very capable. And she's an asset to us and if she does something else, I'm sure she'll be an asset there. She's been seen as one of the doves on the board. Is there such a thing and was she? We have 19 really, really capable people on the committee. And I listened to every one of them, because everyone brings a unique view. And as we've learned in the last few years, people's views change as the data comes in. And so I've got colleagues that you might think are doves who might go. I mean, I think so I think people take the job very seriously and they're very genuinely interested in landing the plane on whatever is actually the situation in the moment, as opposed to I'll call it a preexisting leaning. This running any descent, why is that? You mean dissents or dissent singular because the privilege of sitting in the meeting and there's lots of points of view that are phrased. I wouldn't be confused about the idea that there aren't a lot of different points of view. Give us a bit more clarity on that because from the outside looking in, sometimes it feels like groupthink. There are people that come out that say I disagree with the decision and this is why it's incredibly rare, particularly from the board. How much of that is actually taking place inside the building around these decisions that we're just not aware of. Why isn't this group think? Well, I spend my time every 6 weeks, 7 weeks per week. I go into the market. I don't spend a lot of time in my building. I'm trying to figure out as best I can, what's happening in the economy from people who are participating in it. I try to come up with my own points of view in terms of what's happening to economic conditions and where we ought to go with policy. And I show up with my points of view. And then every time I go there, I learn something. And I learned from people who are doing the exact same thing with their own independent views. I think the structure of the system is very well set up to gather independent views. And then, of course, the meetings are very well led and effort to put those on the table and try to land in a place where you can get some version of consensus. One of the things people have been critical of is that there are 19 members of the open market committee who are speaking all the time. And it can be confusing to a markets and to the public. Do you see that as a valid critique? Well, I'm privileged to be here, so I guess if I say no, then
AG Garland Appoints Special Counsel to Investigate Biden
"So obviously had to forget man, this from Justin news, 18 Merrick Garland today, appointed a special counsel to investigate the classified documents from Joe Biden's time as VP. He said that he initially, he said that he initially appointed U.S. attorney John Walsh and appointee a former president Donald Trump to conduct the initial investigation, but because Laos retiring a different special counsel needed needed to be appointed. So Robert herr, Trump's pick to be the U.S. attorney for Maryland, was appointed a special counsel to continue the investigation. The press conference comes hours after The White House confirmed that a second set of classified documents were discovered in the garage of Biden's home and Wilmington Delaware. Earlier this week, officials confirmed that classified records were found on November 2nd and Biden's former office at the Penn Biden center. Excuse me. So, this is absolutely insane. This is absolutely crazy, and I don't have my cut sheet in front of me 'cause I want, okay, let's get right into this. Excuse me. I want you to hear what the morons at the view have to say right from the bat and I want to respond audio clip number four Sean. I've never seen a lucky person in Donald Trump. Just as with this close to getting them. But you don't have to disappear. Here's the thing. Biden is wrong to have done this. He has an office. Let's find out what this is first. Again. One of the things that gets me crazy is before we know it's already been spun a specific way. I don't want to see that the I want to see someone explain to me a how is possible that after all this time nobody knew this because to me, if you're missing classified information, I don't mean to laugh, but in my house. If stuff is missing, I know it's gonna feel like oppo research to you. Does it feel like the Republicans are behind it? It's not. It did originally but I'm sorry. But oh my God. Do you know, do you know how dumb you have to be to saying what Sonny or ask was sunny hostin just asked? And what joy behar mentioned? Is this Republican opposition? No, it's not Republican opposition fool. You elected a corrupt president.

"Thank you so much, Greg for truly 24/7 coverage of the vicissitudes that we all face. All of this staggers to an inflation report, I believe it's on Thursday. That's what they tell me. And I go back to what I witnessed in folks in my case, it was the luxury of going through whole paycheck this weekend. And I was trying to do the math, you know, I shot like once every three months. And you know, I was doing the math on what I figured was a gross 15% lift. And the expense. And I'm not buying a fancy stuff. When misses king goes, it's like a tip top, you know. Nicely above it. Sure. And then you figure out the price of groceries per bag. It's just stunning. Yeah, I mean, at every walk of life, it's just stunning. I agree Food is where I've seen it the most. Obviously, gasoline into tank and things like that. But food is really what I have noticed a big, so a personal pepperoni pizza in Newark airport this past Friday, $30. $30. Three zero. Not 13. Yes. So wow. So I mean, think about folks that are, you know, week to week, paycheck to paycheck. That is a sizable lift, as you mentioned. Just at the supermarket. So again, the question for a lot of folks is has it peaked and if so, what how quickly would it moderate and that's kind of what we need to figure out?

are preparing for slowing growth and a decline in asset prices He said extremely punitive inflation is offering or should I say creating a tax on the economy and Sullivan said there's at least a 30 to 40% chance of a recession in the next two years Separately Goldman did cut its economic growth forecast for China this year to 4% Of course it's the country's COVID zero policy that gets the blame there Government said avoiding a Shanghai type lockdown is key for China in meeting its growth goals More fed voices are echoing chair Jay Powell's hawkish comments Philadelphia fed president Patrick harker said that he sees half point hikes at the next two meetings He said that will be followed by a series of hikes at a measured pace And Chicago fed president Charlie Evans sees inflation coming down with a few hikes up above the neutral level He sees neutral in the two and a quarter to two and a half percent range We go 50 basis points beyond that 75 basis points beyond that Then that restrictive setting of policy should be working to bring inflation down We don't have to constantly increase the funds rate to be restrictive We can get to a restrictive setting and sit there for a while Maybe we sit there longer at a less restrictive setting and it takes a little bit longer for inflation to come down Fed watchers are wondering what comes next And whether or not policy makers would be willing to induce a recession to bring inflation down Now it will take time for Beijing to act on its promises to support the Chinese tech industry Now this is the warning which comes from Tencent President Martin Laos said that regulators need time to formulate and enact policies the comments coming after Tencent reported revenue growth all but evaporated in the first quarter It was due to a double whammy of course is down to those government restrictions as well as lockdowns across the country Tencent saying that the lockdown in Shanghai was especially damaging It wiped out commercial payments and made undercut advertising spending in the current quarter both of course big drivers of ten cents business ten cents $80 thumping nearly 7% on Wednesday All right 33 minutes past the hour list gets Doug Chris Doug it would seem that markets are pricing in a growth scare I would think that's a fair statement particularly when you look at what's happening in the US Treasury curve today at the long end of the yield on the tenure was down more than ten basis points to two 88 so that's where the action is going to begin in the Tokyo session in about an hour and a half from now Yeah we've been talking about slower growth and the possible risk of recession not really new themes One of the things we've been waiting for is how higher inflation is going to impact corporate earnings and I think we get a big dose of that today when target reduced its full year forecast for operating income margin The company also trimmed its profit forecast Walmart made a similar adjustment yesterday This kind of reinforced the theme that we saw yesterday in Walmart chairs where the stock tumbled 11% Walmart was down another 7% today oh and I forgot to mention target down 25% So you had the S&P 500 retailing sub index dropping nearly 8% today Mega cap tech also hard hit in the sell off we had apple losing more than 5 and a half percent and Amazon shares down by more than 7% today So at the end of the day a lot of negativity NASDAQ composite down 4.7% the NASDAQ 100 down 5% today mentioned the weakness and the S&P 500 actually for the S&P it was the worst down day since June 2020 with a decline of about 4% where the Dow was concerned a loss of more than three and a half percent And as I mentioned we were talking about the move lower in rates at the long end The entire curve moved lower as haven assets were being pursued given the weakness in risk So if you look at the two year treasury now with two 66 we were down a little more than three basis points in yield The dollar is stronger and that was curious right with a drop in yield you expect the exact opposite but today the Bloomberg dollar spot index picked up about four tenths of 1% We do have a weaker yen here one 28 40 or so and as Brian indicated Chicago Nike futures imply a move of at least 600 points to the downside Also a lot of weakness in crude oil today WTI down about two and a half percent Obviously there is concern about growth that's negatively impacting the crude story but there is still a lot of concern about what's happening with the distillate market supplies there very very tight I don't think this story is over Jet fuel today actually bucked the trend in crude oil We'll talk more about that when we check markets again in 15 minutes Rashad All right let's have a

"Power with David Weston on Bloomberg radio Coming up this hour we focus on the future of the fed after the long awaited announcement finally came this week The chair Jay Powell gets to keep his job President Biden during his formal announcement praised pal for his handling of the economy during the pandemic Some will no doubt question why I'm renominating Jay When he was a choice of a Republican predecessor why am I not picking the Democrat Why am I not picking fresh blood Or taking the fed in a different direction Put directly at this moment both of both enormous potential and enormous uncertainty for our economy We need stability and independence at the Federal Reserve The president also chose leil brainer to serve as vice chair but left open three remaining roles including vice chairman of bank supervision a crucial position that deals with Wall Street oversight The president said he will fill the vacancies and bring diversity to the fed I look forward in the coming weeks to nominate an additional members of the Federal Reserve board of governors including a new vice chair for supervision These individuals will help safeguard our financial system alongside Jay and Laos leadership help to support and continue this historic economic recovery While Jay and Leo bring continuities to ability to the fed my additions will bring new perspectives and new voices I also pledge that my additions will bring new diversity to the fed I'll talk to four economists for their views on what to expect under the new fed leadership Douglas holtz eakin former CBO director tells me what we can expect during the confirmation process Plus what we should know about Leo brainerd from her former boss at The White House Laura Tyson And Nobel laureate Paul krugman tells me what his prescription is for the economy and tackling inflation But first we start with reaction from The White House with doctor Heather Boucher of the council of economic advisers Well the president has made very clear from day one that his north star is making sure that we grow and support America's middle class And so that really did inform his decision to reappoint J Powell to the chair of the Federal Reserve Over the past few years we've seen this global pandemic and yet the United States did not have a financial crisis because the Federal Reserve took steps to ensure that that didn't happen You know here we are too in November of 2021 with an unemployment rate of 4.6% And forecasters this time last year said it would have taken us another two years to get back here That's of course because of the steps that the president took and the American rescue plan but it's also because the Federal Reserve has made it possible for the unemployment rate to come back down that they have had the kind of monetary policy that was consistent with moving us back to full employment So I think all of that really does speak to the fact that the president wanted to appoint someone who would focus on making sure that we get the economy back to full employment and that we make sure to show up America's middle class So doctor Boucher obviously there's a church in state sort of separation between monetary policy and fiscal policy And I'm not saying that The White House would try to run the fed At the same time in reappointing someone you want some expectation what's going to happen President Biden had some very nice things to say about Jay Powell and lael brainard But what is the president expect out of this new somewhat new leadership of the fed Well I think to some degree we know what we're going to get from this fad If Jay Powell is confirmed by the Senate you know it was back just a little over a year ago that he had the Federal Reserve go through a process to reevaluate how they make policy and they came up with a framework that gives the fed latitude to not only focus on price stability but also to make sure that they are prioritizing getting back to full employment So I think that says a lot And then also you know especially over the past year the Federal Reserve has taken some significant steps towards addressing issues around one of the most important economic issues which is climate change The fed has joined other central banks in the network for greening the financial system and they've set up some internal committees to look at how climate change affects financial stability So I think all of these things give us a clear sense of where the fed will go in the years to come So Heather you mentioned price stability and full employment The two mandates that the Federal Reserve And what happens if they come into conflict Because right now price stability is some people think a little bit iffy with all the inflation we're seeing at the same time we're not getting a full employment Where is the balance in your mind in the president's mind How much inflation are we willing to tolerate to make sure we get everybody employed Well here's the thing We have been making significant progress on getting the unemployment rate down Been adding jobs to the tune of more than 600,000 a month over the course of the year So that is slow steady progress towards that goal and getting people back to work And we've made more progress than many of our economic competitors And at the same time.

"Investing in uranium if they wanted to one one of the best ways to invest in the nuclear energy story is through. The fuel cycle nets investing in uranium in. You can do that a number of ways. You can invest in mining companies. That produce uranium. It goes into the fuel cycle. You could invest in. Etf that basically holden warehouse uranium on behalf of investors. And then you just speculate. On the commodity price movements was obviously. Etf that bundle a number of of uranium in nuclear equities into internet es product or you can invest through royalties in company ceo of renew mural to core has interest in sixteen different minds and developments around the world that allow investors to benefit when those mines into production they benefit through the royalties that receive into company. So there's a number of different ways women. The attractive features of uranium is unlike gold or copper. Where there's hundreds of ways to invest in those commodities the uranium spaces quite concentrated so when you see investment capital flowing into uranium sector. It's flowing through a relatively small number of of doors and that creates a lot of trading liquidity in in the better uranium names random energy core. Rame royalty core are names that would encourage investors to look into. I really pure plays in uranium story. Were producing globally today. Sixty million pounds of uranium less than one hundred ninety one million pounds that were consuming annually. And we've been in this situation for four to five years so if you just if you were an economist and you looked at uranium no differently than you would look at hopper or gold cotton. You had really impressed with the mismatch that we have right now. We've been drawing off of cemeteries which were admittedly made worse by fukushima which impacted demand and supply which is now ten years. We've now recovered from that. Where nuclear generations back above pre ashim levels but uranium production is well below where it needs to be matched consumption so we seem credible pressure on rhenium prices as stories are depleted and the markets rebalancing and utilities from back to the market contracting again in non normal volume so we have a mega trend towards clean energy which nuclear fits that narrative but we also just have nuts and bolts of supply and demand which couldn't look better is good now have been enumerating. Okay so i definitely want to come back to the royalties part of it. But let's first start with mining so take take us through like a mining company similar to like an oil and gas drilling without their lease land. Mine release land from landowners or produce lungs federal lands so in south texas where uranium energy corp is is based it's innocent. We're focused on what's known as in situ recovery and your listeners would be very familiar with conventional mining which is open pit underground line. This is something very different in is this type of technology is now supplying fifty percent of global production but it's more a wealthy. It'll drilling technology where we drill into a sandstone or body. We circulate sodium bicarbonate which is very solar burying water oxidized uranium off the san. We pump it to the surface as liquid. So we don't have the drilling blasting mill tailings open heads and ground disturbance that we have in other minds which you listen need to mind other minerals or not anti commensurate mining but this technology that we use lambing and texas is a mining technology with even environmental can love because of the minimal act on on the land. So you'd say be different than like fracking tracking yet. Fracking is basically disturbing the underground structure. We're just basically reversing. The natural process in pumping uranium. Out of the ground is as a solution on sing with. Uranium came through millions of years through groundwater through millions of years and pasta. Go into a reduced state from an oxidized state In our case in wyoming texas due to the hydrocarbons of caused that uranium to concentrate in a in a certain place in laos to economic deposit in concentration. what's the timeframe from when you mining company starts a mining to when they're able to sell and realize revenue was the advantages the barriers to entry. In your anymore. Quite i as you know. I mean licensing and permitting anything today. Even housing developed in our highway or our lines can take years so with uranium very highly regulated we go through the nuclear regulatory commission or their equivalents in the states in which you operate it may take six seven eight years to get a mind permited. Licensed and an into production so as investors look for potential companies to align with would encourage christmas look companies that have permited licensed operations. Were minors that already have to civilities that. Are we the in production or they've been production in can restart quite quickly. Because as the cycles change a number of companies will come into the space. They'll be building minds. They'll be ramping up to production but they may be missing you two three four five years of hiring prices that you know the benefits will go to the early earlier. Movers Energy core of the other company that i'm affiliated with really has an advantage with existing infrastructure standby operations in fully permitted. Posits is it equipment and labor intensive to mine. Ore is is not one of the i. Four is not very chapel or labour-intensive because of the technology you know when we're constructing lawsuits were hiring number of drilling contractors. A lot of our employees can come from kind of the own gas industries. Because it's a lot of pipes vows pumps and constructing these well. Fields are shah are essentially sucking uranium out of out of the ground and concentrated into sellable. Yelich brought so it is a good thing in some of these areas where oil and gas and coal are being impacted by public policy You know there are some some of those lost jobs that we can say in employees in our sector. Can you talk about the correlation of the price of uranium versus mining and how the mining company kind of decides at what price to kick into overdrive versus when to to pull.
China Intensifies Hunt for Cryptocurrency Miners in Hiding
"When the history books are written the actual factual mining ban in china will be a key. Part of the crypto story of twenty twenty one. Remember the first rumblings we got about. China targeting crypto in may we sort of brushed off as more bluster and reconfirmation of old policies. At first it was just the banks reinforcing that they weren't allowed to interact with crypto. And so on and so forth but that ultimately changed and when it changed was when the vice premier made a statement saying that they were going to look into a bitcoin mining ban that signaled to all of the local provinces that this was serious and it also signaled that to the local mining operations that we can we saw one of our biggest drawdowns coming off of the rally between december and april and part of that was that minors were actually liquidating their bitcoin and the theorem to try to give themselves mobility to make decisions quickly. Subsequently of course we've seen one of the most significant if not the most significant hash rate migration in bitcoins history. Much of that has been to the benefit of north america. So far but that as we'll see in a minute could change in either case. The blocks will fees. How has a new report out about how provincial governments in china are dealing with the ban in inner mongolia the development and reform commission has hired a contractor to help it monitor for illegal mining operations. This is interesting because there are reports that some chinese bitcoin and the theory of mining operations have quietly even secretly resumed their operations. This partnership with the contractor suggest that the government is going to stay on the case now one interesting nugget from the bidding process is the government's ten bullet list of the areas that it wants to know about which includes the production and development process of crypto mining domestic and international policy stances and regulatory environment over crypto mining. The initial purpose and policy perks that inner mongolia gave to big data and cloud computing enterprises the cost revenue energy consumption and taxation breakdown of crypto mining operations locally the physical distribution breakdown of krypton mining operations locally techniques for differentiating crypto mining operations from other big data and cloud computing projects analysis of mainstream mining hardware and their energy consumption breakdown relevant legal basis for clearing out crypto mining operations the impact of shutting down mining operations on achieving the carbon neutrality goals and long-term regulatory responding mechanisms over crypto mining operations

"I think you're pulling from something for sure. It's very interesting because right when we before we got started. We were talking a little bit about when people experienced sexual trauma. Megan feel angry when they have sex. Yeah and that's something. That i felt for years. And it's something that i didn't know what was going on and it would happen. It would happen just inconsistently. So i didn't know what was going on but i'd love to hear you know before we really get into everything in the treatment that i did and all of your work. I'd love to just kind of finish that conversation about that. Because i'm sure there are a lot of women that have felt that where they've and they've had sexual assault and they're feeling angry at points when they have sex. Yeah so the way that i had described earlier and the way that i. I obviously an avid researcher. I'm a. I have a doctorate and chinese medicine and i love science a lot even though i have my deep spiritual mystical side. I still like to know what the f. is going on. And so the way that. I have seen it over the past decade of really studying people's bodies is we have these different layers. You know you have your muscular system you have your digestive system you have your nervous system. You have all of these different systems within the western science which just named and then with eastern science you have we have channels meridians collaterals. And so the way that. I've seen it over the years. Is we have a sexual body. You have a body that you have sex in you know and you you have this part of yourself that you connect to with other people so when there's trauma that happens to that body it's in that body so then when you go into that body you know just like when we go into our mind or we go into our workout like you go into your workout routine and you're like i'm gonna work my muscles you put on whatever music you wanna listen to and you just go for it and that is the same thing when there's trauma and the container with the sexuality so just like if you were working out and you had an ankle injury and you tore ligaments and then you have to be aware of that hair and then when you work out again you have to rehab it. It's the same thing with sex if you have a trauma in that container there's different chemicals in the body that are communicating and there's different so if it's there then you have to work through that and so the anger is gonna come in because it's an assault it's an assault on your spirit and it's an assault on your body that your body is trying to figure it out and is it. Activating certain if we're speaking about the sexual body is comprised of Different meridians that are part of sexual body. Or how would you describe that s so. There's the in chinese medicine the way that we look at it. As the the chong in the run their their extraordinary meridians and so the ren channel it literally moves up the front of your body and then the do is the back of the body and so it literally is an circuitry system so obviously the nervous system and the actual oregon the uterus badge canal. The penis the amos. If you like that stuff known judge me here all of that is included and then you have the meridians that are included so you have from a western standpoint. You have your nervous system. You have the different excited tori neurons. That are actually firing. When you get excited and you're like wow this is. This person is like going down. You know and like your body. It's not actually. You're in control of that. Like your body is the one that's like. Hey like and it's your nervous system. That's firing you could walk into a room and you can literally like be like that person right there. Laos it's happening. That's the nervous system telling you and it's why do you have that versus some people versus not others like you can have someone on paper or like. Wow that makes perfect sense. Like the body is like you know doesn't because you're sensing things like your smell. Your site like the pitches of their voice. We're animals at the end of the day. And so your your instincts are telling you things about someone. And so that is like one layer of on a chinese standpoint. it's like the the conception vessel is what it's called. And it's like conceiving and it's very poetic. The way that the chinese look at it. It's like the nurturer the the key the conception like the one that receives energy and and that's what it is. You're the front of your body is receiving energy from others and so when we're dealing with the sexual body it's very very poetic and it's very much like the. The uterus is something that harnesses the energy like. It's it's pulling it in and it's growing life and so when you're connecting with someone sexually you're hauling it in and growing life but if you have an assault in that arena you know then you have that anger that's there the uterus is actually harnessing at you know the uterus harnessing that energy and that's why i really am a firm believer and energetic practices and rituals to really purify. The water is again after something like this has happened. So you're not harnessing that anger in the body as you're growing new life which i hoped that all women that have been assaulted that they can really truly and genuinely heal themselves so they get their body and a really good way that they can beautifully girl's life and whether it's a baby or whether it's just their life it's growing wow. I didn't think about that that if your uterus or your body or sexual bodies not trauma that your child. There's an energetic that's happening. Well yeah and it's like our bodies like our dna and our our information that we're storing in our body is informing our children. We literally when you're growing that person inside of you. All the information that you carry is getting passed to that person you know and so whatever the information as if there's like harm or you like whatever our instincts are were passing every single thing that we have to that creature as we're growing it because that's way we want them to evolve so they get all the information that we have all of the information that our ancestors have and then they get to grow new information and grow new life from there yet. I think for for me. I've just kind of come to terms with it in the past couple of years all the times that.

I'd be curious of your of your opinion. I'm afraid you're right, Mark. You know what's happening now It's just a continuation of what happened in the Obama Biden there now that it's the Biden era, Russia had been a peripheral player in Middle East if a player at all since 1973 when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger help eject them from Middle East, and Obama basically invited invited him back in after the Syrian Red Line fiasco when he refused to enforce his own red line. And now you've got countries like Saudi Arabia, longstanding partner of the United States, who see what's happened with Joe Biden's bug out in Afghanistan were abandoning not just Afghans who helped us but even our own citizens, and they think they need to start cutting side deals to protect their own interests. You know, some people compared what's happened over the last week in Afghanistan. Having decided on in 1975. And remember what happened. Saigon in 1975 small foretaste of what Lay ahead, Laos and Cambodia fell almost immediately. You had the horrors of Paul Pot, then become a rouge. Cuba is sending shock troops all over the All over Latin America and Africa as well. Russia invaded Afghanistan. Um, so for years that reverberated. I'm afraid that Joe Biden's impotence and incompetence in Afghanistan will reverberate for years to come

The U.S. Has A History Of Linking Disease With Race And Ethnicity
"Okay. So today we're talking about the suspicion and harassment of asians and asian americans as the krona virus spreads and this kind of fear actually has a long history in the united states right gene a very long history and actually what we learned from. Eric lee is that the seeds of this discourse of china and asia being unsanitary and crowded those seeds were planted long before chinese immigration to the us the teeming hordes of millions living in health and then as americans who travel to china and then came back to the united states. They spread those ideas. Unfortunate the own brand for the us low so right in the mid eighteen hundreds you have the first waves of chinese immigrants coming over to find fortune in the california gold rush and they also become a source of cheap labor working as farmhands building railroads etc and eventually this becomes a source of tension. Exactly so when the domestic economy takes a downturn different immigrant groups start competing for these previously undesirable jobs and you start seeing harassment even massacres of chinese workers but erica says that the idea of chinese immigrants being dirty and disease. That's still with us. We know from the very beginning As americans in general are starting to debate the so-called problem of chinese immigration. They are explicitly tying china chinese people chinese spaces with disease and contagion. Historians have shown that the rhetoric is about chinatown as plague spots as pools of laboratories of infection. Erica says that way back. In the late nineteenth century we really started to see specific policies that reflect this thinking around chinese as a threat to public. Oh okay give me an example of that. So erica told us about quarantine that happened in one thousand nine hundred in san francisco when the discovery bluebonnets plague in chinatown Bannock plague that's a potential deadly bacterial. Disease the black death right. People believe rats. Broad across the pacific steamship was unlikely. Source of the disease. Erica says san francisco officials at the time. Saw the chinese immigrants as vermin infested. So all of chinatown was placed under quarantine. And there were these periodic. Campaigns to quote disinfect chinatown flooding basements in that district with acid washing the walls with lie tearing down old buildings that rhetoric by the way erica says has been applied to a lot of immigrant groups throughout history but there is a particular way in which it has been racialized with chinese chinese as dog eaters as eaters of weird and strange animals including rats and mice and that they if they are eating and consuming rats that are known to spread disease than chinese people as a race are also carriers of disease so what happened then was. San francisco's quarantine. So the plague became racialized blamed on a group of people. The city ordered an immediate quarantine of chinatown with orders to remove all whites from the affected area so so white. Residents of san francisco were ordered to leave chinatown but chinese people could not. It's such an intense thing to know and accept this history and realize it's been with us for a really long time. It's been with us. And we haven't really grappled with all of this of course is happening against the backdrop of the chinese exclusion act which was passed in eighteen. Eighty two and it prevented chinese laborers from entering the united states. Which this time of heightened anti-chinese rhetoric and sentiment that law would actually mark the first time the u. has banned the immigration of an entire ethnic group. So when you and your co hosts shreen. Marcel marashi spoke to eric harley. Eric told you a very personal story about her grandfather. And what happened to him when he immigrated to the us and it's really relevant to what we're talking about today so erica's grandfather came to the us through angel island right angel island. It's the ellis island of the west coast. It was in san francisco bay and there was this whole special system of scrutiny for chinese immigrants in particular so erica's grandfather like so. Many chinese immigrants angel island was pulled aside and inspected separately from other asian immigrants because people believe that chinese immigrants were carriers of disease. What a way to come into a country and she said that her grandfather never told her that story directly but she was interested in it and because she's historian she actually took the records of her grandparents interogations and specifically. She found her grandfather's medical exam from angel. It was it was nothing like anything. I've read before. Immigration officials ordered my grandfather to be subjected to the most invasive medical exam that i've seen in hundreds of these records so they had the medical doctor at angel island examined him for for diseases but also to measure every aspect of his body. His teeth his his genitals his. You know it's a his height to determine what age he was to determine weather his claim of being seventeen when he was immigrating was actually true and they included just all of these detailed notes in a record and it was. It was quite shocking to read. That's really just I mean i hear the story. And i think it's important at a time like this to hear stories like this so We've been talking specifically about chinese immigration but as you mentioned earlier this history of public health and hygiene efforts and how it gets mixed up with race and ethnicity. It's also happened to other immigrant. Groups right i mean. This is something that erica talks about a lot in her book which is of course about xenophobia in the united states but it wasn't just chinese immigrants who were being targeted in this way. I mean if you look at what was happening around the same time on the southern border mexican immigrants. The us were being treated very similarly. This is one of the ways in which to phobia works. It's it uses an already existing playbook certain immigrants are are threats there there threats because they bring crime also because they take away jobs but also because they they are starting genetically carriers of disease. And surprise american policymakers setup immigration procedures for mexicans. That looked a lot like what was happening to the chinese. On the west coast and when mexican immigrants arrived across the border they were routinely subjected to invasive humiliating and harmful disinfecting baths using pesticides to route out laos but also to cleanse mexican people's their clothing and their baggage before entering the united states. I mean just the fact that mexicans were seen as carrying disease in the same way that chinese were and that this pattern is repeated. Is really interesting. This is much harsher. Then what happened at ellis island where european immigrants certainly faced scrutiny. But the the medical exams were known as six second physicals and chinese people in particular. Still carry around that stigma. And we're seeing that procession playoff when it comes to corona virus. Absolutely i you know. We're exile eighty and fear out there right now about getting sick. That is getting tangled up in this legacy and you know. I'm picturing who are listening to this and they're thinking yes. This history is real. I know this sounds really bad. But i'm just worried about eating at a chinese restaurant gene and emily just buried and i i just. I'm worried about sitting next to someone who is asian. what do i do. That's not how disease works. We actually put this question to erica and she said With each headline with each new case with each new bizarre choice of photo for a new story lines the flames of anxiety right now in the us but racist scapegoating and outright discrimination does not have to accompany the things. It is an unfortunate echo of the past. But it doesn't have to be
Connect to 5D Gaia And Infinite Source With Dakota Earth Cloud Walker
"Well can to a nether. Podcast episode of merck kaba charlie russia's i'm your host von goats and today we dive into the healing nature of connecting to five guy or earth through the shamanic meditation and rituals with doug coda earth cloud walker. Now dakota been a teacher for over twenty five years and she brings a wealth of experience in how we all can connect to our planet and each other through shamanism so with that the coda welcomed makovich. Thank you so much for having me here. I really appreciate it and love talking about this stuff so at least you. I love metaphysics too. Yeah it's good stuff and there's so many different ways to come into metaphysics and high alums of consciousness and so many different experiences. You never really get bored so Yeah i love to okay so before we get into this wonderful discussion about the modalities that you bring forth to connect to five the guy and the higher consciousness within the universe. Let's begin with. How did you get into this work in the first place. Now well i would say that the work found me and really when i look back on my life i feel like i have been living the shamanic life ever since i was a kid. Even my parents would comment about that. That it was just that was always my natural way of being was to be more of that chamonix nature so for me. When i got into the work it was Really just kind of an extenuation of what i always knew and felt and then i just found a way to carve it out into my life. I started in my early twenties teaching spiritual studies and things like that and really diving into the world. Native american spirituality and celtic drew injury and just kind of finding my own path but then at the same time. I'm always been the one that you know. I feel very passionate about something. I want to bring it into my work and so became very easy dovetail to make that right right and you know just just for people to understand about shamanism. Shamanism is just kind of generic term. Because there's a lot of shamans all over the world. I'm laos and their shamanism house as well as well as all over the world. Mongolia china south native american The celtics have Their own as well and basically shamanism is just basically a spiritual approach to your connection to that subco- energy field of universal consciousness. Everybody s it. It's just kind of coming into that mysticism about reality and that's really what it is It is connected to any kind of religions there's no buddy to chew etc so In terms of a spiritual approach. It's very very very much. And we have a lot of shaman nissim type outlook in buddhism because buddha again is a spiritual approach that is not unreligious you reality and to connect to that christ consciousness within you and everyone else which is source so right. We're talking the same language years. Yeah yeah there's a lot of misconceptions about shamanism because they feel like it's it's primarily native american or that it's a religion you know. Some people feel very dark energy and really. It's it's it's very very light and it's more like a container that contains the soul of the person who is deciding to walk that path. In whatever capacity that you show up in

"laos" Discussed on WGN Radio
"State plan or a new lawyer and have an update done because that changes things significantly, you might want to leave things to your spouse that you didn't want to leave. You said you wanted to leave the other people you might want to just leave it exactly as it is. Maybe you wanted your kids to have everything and you still want your kids to have everything. But at least it's worth a call to the lawyer to make sure you're not missing something and making sure that your your state plan is exactly the way you want it. The other layer of protection is the prenup, and I am a very big fan of pre nups. I just did one for a client this last week. It was very simple. All she wanted to do was make sure At her property. There was two pieces of property that went to her Children, and she was getting married at an older age. And she wanted to make sure that everyone understood that that the husband understood that the Children understood it. And we did a very simple, very inexpensive prenup. That is, in addition to what her state plan will will do. So the question is, Do you need both? I'm not sure. But it's definitely worth talking to a lawyer to tell you with easiest, simplest and at least expensive, but most secure way to do it. Okay. Great. Thanks for the insult. Okay, good friend. Take care. Okay. Thank you. Let's go to Ron in Romeoville. Hi, Ron. Welcome to the show. How you doing? I got a pretty straightforward question instead of involving an attorney and everything I wanted to know if I'm able to print out a document. See, I have two Children one I don't have anything to do with so I wanna leave all my assets. The one child put it in the document stating such maybe haven't witnessed and notarized. Is that good enough Insufficient case. The other kid wants to fight it in court. Yeah, The answer is probably no and what you're going to need to do. I mean, again. It's worth it to have a lawyer, even if it's just a consultation. Even you know, if you call Christian and you say, this is what I want to do, he might tell you if you don't want to spend money on it. That's fine. But let me give you some some information. There needs to be witnesses, and there's a certain number witnesses and they have to be people who are not involved in the situation. So you don't want your heirs to be witnesses and you have to have certain signing requirements, and if that's not done, then it's not a valid will. Okay, so there's certain items that have to be in the will doesn't have to be drafted by a great lawyer. But there are some signing and executing. Requirements that if they're not done, you're gonna be in trouble. So if you want, you can call Christian at 3123327 800 or email me all forward it, WGN at asked Karen conti dot com and he can probably give you a quick answer one way or the other asses far as what qualifications are for having that thing executed. Okay. Thank you very much. All right. You take care of, you know, I had a caller this week. Carol asked me a question, she said. You know, all the writers of the capital are being charged and I hear a lot of the lawyers are claiming that the defense is going to be that President, Trump said. We could do this and encouraged us and told us to do this and is that A proper defense doesn't sound like it makes sense that you can defend by saying our president and, you know, basically told us to do this kind of thing. You know, I did a little bit research on this and looked into it and there is some precedent. For that defense being able to be lodged. There was a case back in 2007, where some residents of California were accused of plotting to overcome overthrow a communist government of Laos of all places, and the U. S attorney's office ended up dropping the charges and the common thought was That when the lawyers started to lodge the defense that that there was ah federal agent posing as a CIA officer who they thought was acting as an operative of the American government, and they were listening to what this person was saying, and based upon that they thought they had the clearance to do it. And even though they were mistaken, even though this was kind of Ah, set up that that was a defense that could probably probably have been a defense. Was another case that involved some people who bought guns and they were felons and the owner of the gun store said. It's okay. You can buy guns, even if you're a felon. There's a loophole and you fit under the loophole. And when the people who bought the guns were charged, they said, Well, listen, I was listening to The gun owner, gun store owner and he told us we were all can we listen to him and he's the expert on it, even though he was wrong so there and that was a proper defense, or at least it made. It made it to the jury on that defense. So the answer to your question is, I think you're going to see that the lawyers are going to lodge that defense. I think that Ah, judge is going to have to decide before any trial goes forward. Whether or not that is a legitimate defense, because it's going to have to be that the person who committed that crime her, Donald Trump say what he said reasonably believe, reasonably not just believed. But reason we've had reason to believe that he was encouraging and telling people they could go do this kind of thing. And even if they knew it was a crime. They knew that Donald Trump, as the commander in chief would have would have allowed them to do that, And that is a stretch. But certainly it's probably one of the better defenses, especially when you have people on videotape doing the things that they did. I'm still taking your legal questions here. Phone lines are wide open. 3129817 200. Introducing TD Ameritrade's newest trading.
A Big Dose Of Perspective With Jack Kornfield
"Jack. Great to see you and thank you for coming Great pleasure thank you. Dan also for having me. It's time when we. I think we need to all come together and use our best wisdom and understanding of how to navigate. I completely agree and so let me. Just start with your mind. What are you doing to stay even in your own mind. Of course i meditate some but more importantly arrested in place that has a lot of spaciousness in it and a kind of trust. I'm old enough at age. Seventy five to have seen revolutions. Common go and difficulties arise in pass. Have and i also see that. There's i guess it was martin. Luther king talked about the moral arc of the universe being long but advance toward justice. I see that there's ways that systems also regulate themselves so whether it's the pandemic that we are in the throes of that is really causing enormous amount of suffering and loss whether it's the political disruptions in the capital and otherwise were just the calls for racial and economic justice that we needed for so long. I feel we're in a evolutionary process with its fits and starts. And i think about people like one gary mata who won the nobel prize for the greenbelt in east africa. She started by planning one to ten. Twenty fifty trees got other people to do. It eventually was thrown in prison on. I think that's a requirement for nobel peace laureates mostly And ended up planning fifty one million trees in changing a lot of the face to be africa or or or ellen sirleaf in manga bowie also nobel prize winners who said their country. Liberia used to be known for its child. Soldiers in had these terrible civil wars and now it's known for its women leaders and so there is some way in which just as the green sprouts come up through the cement in the sidewalk. There's something about life in. it's also the human heart that wants to renew itself. And so i rest back in kind and loving awareness to say yes. Let me turn my gaze away from the from the needs suffering the things to respond but also to hold it in a much bigger context justice. I agree that universe in the world is breathing. And that's how i keep my mind on a good day not the mean. There are bad days a bad moments but mostly my heart is pretty peaceful but you know there are things. I get a call from my daughter. Dad you know. This terrible thing is happening. At the nonprofit she runs for getting asylum for all people whose lives are endangered. What do i do our calls from dear friends. Oh my family has covid. So i'm deeply touched by these things and responding. Sometimes they really affect me. And i can feel the pain of it. You know or give worried but with all of that. There's a rounded a field of loving awareness of spaciousness entrust. That gives a much bigger picture and there. I'm just going on back away trying to answer your question and also spread out a little bit. When i was a monk training in the forest monasteries in southeast asia as a buddhist monk the main forest temple i lived was in a province adjoining. Both laos in cambodia was during the war in vietnam and laos cambodia. So we would see fighter jets going overhead and bombers and you know in some of the branch monasteries you could even see flashes from the from the bombs and people would come visit us. I had friends who were working in. Vietnam laos people that i knew as i had been working on medical teams in that ray calm river valley saying what are you doing sitting on your you know. There's a war to stop. There's things we need to do and my teacher would say. This is the place where we stop the war.
"laos" Discussed on Two Moms Day Drinking
"Nations and yeah i did. We did a good time. And that's exactly what i said. I mean i didn't matter what i was working on. It was always happy to come to work. Because i knew i was going to talk to somebody or it was going to be something to take my mind off of him here. How are you completely. This is your whole both of you. This is your whole gig. So what is your day consist of Right now my day consists of a lot of back and forth between kids making sure they're they're virtual me or zoom class or never assignment. There's supposed to be doing. I mean the first day they were home. I had about a ten foot space in laos. And by nine o'clock i had i had my little Monitor rate and i had three thousand steps in for the day and i had gone literally ten feet in my house and it was just constantly back towards making sure they were on the right thing. That's basically what my day consists of..
Travel to Northwestern Colorado
"I like to welcome the show Sam and Nina. Oppenheim Sam you may remember from being on the show way back you can find Samsa Tiger fee at Sam Oppenheim, dot com Sam and Nina welcome to the show. Thank you for having a Song Chris to care and I say Sam has been on the show in a while we figure it's something like ten years of marriage in two kids later that SAM is back. In the early years talking about Bali and northern India and Laos I believe if I am. Correctly, but you're talking something a little more domestic this time. What are we talking about today? So mostly the national parks in northern Colorado I figured because of Covid we did a little domestic travel and there's some amazing sites at their dinosaur, national? Monument. Doesn't get enough attention and Rocky Mountain National Park among a lot of people's favorites excellent and you did this as part of a larger RV trip this year. Correct. So we did our first ever family RV trip and we all four corners, Arizona Utah Colorado? New Mexico but what we covered has been covered by your show before like the route sixty six stuff in New Mexico and Arizona we did that and you recently had a podcast about the national parks in Arizona. Offer beaten past beyond the Grand Canyon so we don't want to repeat anything It's getting tougher. So we do repeat some things these days. In fact, I'm going to try and repeat the show we did allows Laos coming up here sometime I'm just looking for a guest. So let's focus in on Colorado which I think we decided was about a week long portion of your trip yes and you doing this by RV right excellent and where should we start if you're GONNA? Do it just all on its own as a one week one way road trip you could fly into Salt Lake City and fly out of like older Denver area. But I'm not GonNa Really. WanNa talk about Salt Lake City that much. So I think. Can we just start in Dinosaur National Monument border of Utah and Colorado. So we're up in the north western corner of Colorado when we're in dinosaur national monument correct it's most of the monument is now in Colorado but the part with the dinosaur quarry is in Utah and it's one of those parks that stretches across the border and it's Absolutely. Incredible. It's actually two hundred, ten, thousand acres and includes two river canyons both the green and Yamba River canyons and so some people think Oh, it's a national monument. It's not as big as a national park will actually it's a lot bigger than some national park. So the designation National Park is more Congressional and National Monument is Presidential Right? It doesn't determine the funding or the sides are valued visiting the site right? Exactly. So I have spent some time in Dinosaur National Monument but I've done exactly the opposite of the things that you've done. So tell me a little bit about your experience first of all. Yes. So we did is we stayed in an RV campsite outside of the park, but actually we're going to recommend that anyone doing this trip stays inside the park. It's just going to be a better trip I'm talking this cold tour that we're going to be doing here is more of an outdoorsy type of tourism, and so I think if you word of a reserve, the campground at either Split Mountain or Green River on the Utah side of. Dinosaur. National Monument. You would then be inside the park. It's a beautiful campground right on a quiet stretch of the Green River, and all these campgrounds can be reserved on recreation dot Gov, and you could do it with an RV and could do it with a tent. But if you wanted to stay outside there are places you can stay in Jensen Utah which is kind of the border town for the national. Monument, in Utah more in Dinosaur Colorado, they named the town after the monument. Okay and neither of those are all that large town as I am now I think the largest town in the area's vernal Utah, which a little further west than Johnson and actually we should mention that if you're into dinosaurs hopefully you are. If you're going to dinosaur national monument, there is actually a lovely museum in Vernal Utah Not a large museum, but you can see some velociraptor and things like that. So especially, if you're there with kids and I think you were traveling with two. That's that's someplace that I would recommend. We were on prevent a long drive from Bryce Canyon Up to Dinosaur National Monument, and so we drove to rural and it was we made sure to stop at some of those dinosaur statutes that are in town. We weren't unfortunately stay for the museum. I. Don't know if it was open actually right now a lot of museums here in two, thousand, twenty, nine open. It was great to see those the statues in town. If you like photo ops with giant roadside dinosaurs, you won't be disappointed on this road trip.
End of 'Green Sahara' May Have Spurred a Megadrought in Southeast Asia
"Thousand years ago the Sahara had extensive grasslands and was dotted with lakes and trees but some five thousand years ago that Green Sahara dried up to become the enormous desert. We know today and scientists. Now think that this climate shift had effects far away including causing a mega drought in South East, Asia Kathleen are Johnson a Paleo climatologist and geochemists at the University of California Irvine says the key to that discovery were Stalagmites collected in cave in northern Laos. So like my I really amazing archives of past climate variability people are often more familiar with things like tree rings, ice cores, or maybe ocean sediment cores while select nights work in a similar way in that, they are deposited over time Johnson's team analyzed trace elements and carbon and oxygen isotopes in the hardened caved drippings that information enables researchers to determine rainfall patterns over the Millennia and. Johnson and her colleagues discovered signs of a thousand year long drought in Laos which began around the same time. The Sahara dried up about five thousand years ago as for why the two events might be connected the researchers simulated the drying out of the Sahara using climate models and included a couple things we know happened including the subsequent disappearance of vegetation and a connected increase in airborne dust, and they found that those variables. Would have been capable of cooling down the Indian Ocean and so the Cooler Ocean temperatures basically led to less moisture being being brought by monsoon circulation during the summertime when that region gets most of its rainfall, the details are in the journal Nature Communications One of Johnson's co-authors is joyce white a consulting scholar at the Penn Museum. She studies the Human History of Southeast Asia and her reaction when she first heard about the drought. On my God that's the missing millennia the missing millennia because she says, archaeological data are scant in that part. Of Southeast. Asia from four to six thousand years ago white says it's a critical period in which hunter-gatherers gave way to farmers, and there are a lot of debates about how the two periods related to each other. But we lacked the evidence in the area. I'm most interested in which is the maycom valley. White says this study doesn't answer that question directly, but the mega drought is a tantalizing clue for archaeologists has they continue to investigate those missing millennia.
