Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny

"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

One key to adapting to climate change: Having your own energy grid

"Talking about how tech can help us adapt to climate change. It's part of our series how we survive increasingly in the. Us people are having to adapt to a world without reliable power storms fires even power shut offs designed to prevent fires. Have lots of people trying to figure out. Local solutions for electricity. Once lucian is micro grids. Decentralized power generation often with solar as it source. Jose alfaro is a professor at the center for sustainable systems. At the university of michigan. He says microbes can represent freedom. It is a way for us. Say okay if this can't be solved from the top down then we will solve it from the bottom up. And i will create these Micro grids that me to be much more renewable than before. I mean the united states transmission and distribution system is probably the largest machine into world and we are basically all tied to it and microbes. Allow those pockets of communities to not necessarily completely. Disengage have more autonomy over how they're engaging with that. Machine is not a problem for the machine. Like is there resistance from utilities to this kind of increasing use yes. There is definitely resistance from the utilities. There is a the theory called the death spiral and that is the idea that the utilities have all these investments and they have to charge enough to be able to upkeep those investments and so if i lose a pocket of demand because they installed their own micro grid then i'm going to have to charge more per unit energy for the rest of the people and then they're going to think my electricity is getting too high. Let's do our own micro grid and they do that and becomes a vicious cycle until the utility has to completely go broke. And so that's that is part of the theory behind the resistance and i think there's a a little bit of truth to that or some significant truth But also i think there's an opportunity there Where the utilities can think more creatively about business models that can allow them to incorporate these these types of micro grids into their models. I feel like the conversation about the grid is a conversation. That's been going on for a really long time at least here in the us. Do you see the push for micro grids as something that could ultimately force that change when it's been slow to come. Most of my work is abroad is not in the us. And i see it in the us as a just a simmering movement towards resilience and renewables. Right but i think that as we see the examples happening in other countries that movement might get more steam and might become more of a boil and do fix some of that. I think there's a lot of technical research we need to do in the us Because we can't just throw away the thousands of miles of distribution networks etc that we have and then tell me what's happening in the developing world where you do a lot of micro-credits there. How big of an opportunity is that for. Using renewables for avoiding a huge you know transmission and distribution network. What's happening actually in india. We're seeing we just finished a study very interesting. Where people had a micro. They were extended the central grid. And now they keep both connections and they keep paying for both connections one for resilience and the other one because it gives them a little bit more power type thing but the micro grid still. They're still competing. We're also seeing a lot of circular economy opportunities at least in my space where we look at biomass residues and farming communities and agricultural communities are able to create their own energy through biomass residues and gasification or thermal technologies and compliment that with solar energy and they have basically a very stable microsd. That is a lot cheaper than the central grid. They could get connected.

Virgin Hyperloop's Jay Walder on the Future of Transportation

"Hyperloop began as a sketch by elon. Musk which i think he barred from. Nineteen eighty seven. James bond film. It's a capsule you put someone in and send them hurtling at dramatic speeds through a long distance pipeline sons. A little sci fi but seven years later the leading company developing it. Virgin hyperloop has at its helm. Jay walder a guy who has been in charge of the subway systems of new york london and hong kong. that's one way to gain credibility so welcome jay. Thanks for being here a wilson. Thanks for having me. So how did it happen. You get a call from the company's lead investor dubai port world and they were like what you're interested in overseeing a some sort of to brockett the line that i often repeat which came from the the The head-hunter is he set out. Something i wanna talk to you about. But it's not for the faint of heart and he wasn't lying. It's just incredible and it was a great great opportunity and and to be able to move from doing the things that i've done in my career in the to now really have any opportunity to fundamentally reshape the way we think about mass transit. That's just amazing. But what was it like. What was the thing that. What was the one piece that sparked you that you said okay. This isn't just drawings on on on a piece of paper we. We went through like russian. Finally someone said to me any get on a plane. Come alka las vegas our co founder and cto. Josh neidl will meet you there. And come out to see the test in las vegas and that was the moment i mean. I shouldn't be given us away. But i was at that point just totally locked and it was so real. It's very hard to grasp without seeing it. I think of you guys teased a video to us. That i got the chance to watch but unfortunately we are not allowed to show on this this program today and it showed Kind of like it looked like some sort of emirates air check in room. You know a big gorgeous atrium where people were passengers were walking in. They kind of get on this things. It looks like a really fancy disney ride they shoot off and the speedometer says six hundred plus miles an hour. Meanwhile they're sitting there enjoying their coffee in working on their laptops. You know getting to there seems like a major journey but you recently on november eighth hit a milestone. what was that yes a look. Let's let's break it down a little bit the test facility that we had in las vegas. We have run over four hundred test that test facilities. It's a five hundred meter hyperloop tube of full-scale working hyperloop that the company is built and and really demonstrated improving the that that hyperloop works. We that had already been accomplished but but the question we were asked most often that i was asked most often is. Is it safe and we set out on a journey really about eighteen months ago to be able to show that it is safe and to put the first people in a hyperloop pod that really was. I think a huge step so what what happened on november eighth remember aids two of our colleagues real people. Josh geigo are co founder they said sarah lucian who is the director of our passenger experience. They got in a hyperloop pod together and we had the first run of people in hyperloop loop and really being able to look at this and say we have now. Demonstrably answered that question. It is safe so can you just take us through this again. It's twenty twenty. Originally guys said twenty twenty five having a certified program but now you're looking to have production by twenty thirty something actually in the works so so let me let me take a couple of steps back on this and then then take your question. Because i think there's several things embedded in their first off. You see a test with with real people showing that we can do it. Our goal in this is to have a customer experience. That feels truly special right to have something in which you you are going into an environment. That is is quick and convenient for you. That it's flexible more. Like ride hailing than the way. We think about the tyranny of train schedules. I always like to point out environmentally friendly right. We want to be able to think of this as twenty-first-century transportation that's not polluting. The air that we breathe and in certain locations. I think we can literally disconnect from the grid and that's an amazing statement to be able to make about doing this. The foundation of any monitoring station system has to be shared mobility. There's no question about that and to go back to what you were saying before. Why am i here right. I'm here to connect what what is an incredible technical development program. That's part of the point. You're making with what it takes to be. A transportation system in between that is is really proving. The safety in the certification creating the customer experience and allowing all of those things to happen to be able to do it. Our path forward is to have the certification of the system by two thousand twenty five. We recently announced that we will move forward to build the hyperloop certification center in west virginia. Usually excited about this look. I'm a. I'm a kid from new york. I'm not sure. I would have ever guessed that we would be going to west virginia to do this so we're going to. We're going to build that out and literally. I've got people there right now. Working to be doing this simultaneous. What we're doing right now. We should have that certification by twenty twenty five and then when you refer to the end of the decade by the end of the decade. I want hyperloop projects that are that are in us that we are actually running

More than eighteen hundred people have died because of overloaded hospitals. The fatality rate and Lamberti is nine percent in the rest of Italy. The fatality rate is five point one percent Spanish health authorities reported two thousand New Corona virus cases in twenty four hours on Sunday bringing the total in the country of Spain to eight thousand cases with two hundred eighty eight deaths as the number of people who have died of the virus more than doubled in twenty four hours as the Spanish death. Toll was up from one hundred thirty six a day earlier. That is an increase of almost one hundred percent. Spain is clearly on. The Italian trajectory is France. Next it certainly seems to be going that way quoting the New York Times. France announced the closing of all non indispensable businesses including restaurants bars and movie theaters after a sharp uptick in corona virus cases. The number of French cases past five thousand four hundred twenty on Sunday with one hundred and twenty seven deaths on Saturday. Three hundred corona virus patients were in critical condition half of them under sixty years of age on Sunday. Francis Transportation Minister said the country would begin reducing plane train and bus services between cities and quote. I'd like to end the segment with some potentially good news from Italy Adrenal Aguzzi. A professor of neuro pathology and Switzerland just north of the troubled Italian region of Lombardy tweeted a chart this weekend that showed that even with the surge in deaths in Italy over the last few days the death rate is deviating ever so slightly from exponential growth. It's early days. But the lockdown might be beginning to work linked to the chart. I'm referencing in the show. Notes and Chen He wa. The European Bureau chief for China Daily tweeted this quote. Just read that Chinese medical team sent to Italy to fight Kovic nineteen comprises mostly experienced doctors from Sichuan Sichuan folks still remember how an Italian rescue team during the devastating. Two Thousand Eight Wenchuan earthquake saved many lives. The world needs more of US helping each other and quote. There has been a lot of justified. I think hand-wringing about the scenes of people going to bars and restaurants even to Disney world. This weekend seemingly unworried about anything that is going on. This is obviously a problem for one. Big reason potential transmission from people who might not know they already have the disease indeed. There is increasing evidence that it is young people people without symptoms that might be the key driver of the spread of Corona Virus. Even more so than we realized quoting. Cnn New Studies in several countries and a large corona virus outbreak in Massachusetts Bring into question reassuring assertions by US officials about the way the novel virus spreads it appears that a Massachusetts Corona virus cluster. With at least eighty two cases was started by people who are not yet showing symptoms and more than a half dozen studies have shown that people without symptoms are causing substantial amounts of infection several experts interviewed by CNN. Said while it's unclear. Exactly what percentage of the transmission in the outbreak is fueled by people who are obviously sick versus those who have no symptoms or very mild symptoms? It is becoming clear that transmission by people who are as symptomatic or mildly symptomatic is responsible for more transmission than previously thought and quote. Indeed scientists seem to be coming to the conclusion that this is what makes corona virus so insidious it can spread far before it even sickens both mergers and SARS tend to be only spread by symptomatic people. But if you get cova did you might have spread it to fifty other people before you even know it. Add to that what we've previously discussed about how scientists suspect that you're more contagious earlier. On in the disease in a study of twenty four passengers who had just flown from Israel seven tested positive for corona virus of which four had no symptoms and the viral load of specimens from a symptomatic patients was higher than from the three patients. Who had symptoms thus the global move toward social distancing? Stay home stay out of large crowds status small crowds. There's a link to chart in the show notes that shows the difference between two towns in Italy. The two are Bergamo and loyalty. Loyalty actually had the first cove in nineteen case reported before Bergamo reported. Its first but Loki. Shut down their town February. Twenty Third Burgum. Oh waited until almost a week later by March thirteenth lucky only had around a thousand cases of corona virus and those case numbers seem to be leveling out while Burgum oh has seen case numbers shoot up to two thousand five hundred and young people. I'm talking to you. Data from South Korea where they test everyone they can is suggesting that. Thirty percent of the carriers in that country where aged twenty to twenty nine. If that's not enough to convince you let me point you to an actual animation. It is literally just balls. Dancing around and environment randomly representing infections over time. Look at what happens to the infection curve when only a quarter of a population continues to circulate and three quarters of a population practice social distancing. The infection rate is significantly slowed and with extensive distancing with seven eighths of a population staying home. The infection curve is stopped almost in its tracks. These are powerful animations but they are only animations only simulations made to educate on a concept. The concept is however. This is joke. If you can stay home let me quote. The last paragraph from the story accompanying the simulation quote in one crucial respect. These simulations are nothing like reality. Unlike simulations cove nineteen can kill though. The fatality rate is not precisely known. It is clear that the elderly members of our community are most at risk from dying from covered. One thousand nine hundred quote if you want this to be more realistic. A scientist was quoted after seeing a preview of the story some of the DOTS should disappear and quote link to the simulation is of course in the show. Notes questions are being raised as to whether or not more of US should be wearing face masks. Even if we're not showing signs of corona virus infection authorities in China already mandate the wearing of masks in all public places whether or not people are sick or healthy quoting from ink stone since late January Chinese authorities and major cities have enforced rules on wearing face masks in public spaces including detaining. Those who tried to use public transport without a mask and quote in South Korea and Japan is also required. That mask be worn by healthy people in crowded places but in much of the rest of the world including here in the US. It's advised that only people displaying symptoms should wear masks as just mentioned the possibility that corona virus can be spread by a symptomatic. People is causing some to argue for more widespread use of masks quoting again from ink stone. A symptomatic transmission has been reported in multiple countries in which a spreader is responsible for sickening others without knowing it in January at cluster. Thirteen infections was believed to have started with a British man who contracted the virus during a trip to Singapore and spread it to others on a skiing trip in the French Alps and back home in the United Kingdom all the while showing no signs of infection himself quote researchers writing in the Lancet suggested that in light of this current national advice may need updating to deal specifically with Ron Virus quoting from the peace. If everyone puts on a mask in public spaces it would help to remove stigmatization that has hitherto discouraged masking of symptomatic patients in many places. Furthermore transmission from asymmetric infected individuals has been documented for Kobe. Nineteen and viral load is particularly high at early disease. Stage masking as a public health intervention would probably intercept the transmission link and prevent these apparently healthy infectious sources and quote. All of that said as of right now. The advice remains to only wear a mask if you are displaying symptoms helping to conserve the mask as a resource masks are in short supply and are needed for medical practitioners. Who them more than the rest of us. In order to safely treat people not get sick themselves and thus stay on the job. A new study has revealed the length of time that Kobe nineteen can remain viable on common surfaces. The study so new that it is yet to be. Peer reviewed found that Corona virus was most stable on plastic and stainless steel with viable virus being detected up to seventy two hours on those surfaces after application it can also remain viable for up to twenty four hours on cardboard and up to four hours on copper. The researchers noted that these decay timings were similar to those found with the two thousand and two two thousand. Three SARS virus suggesting that quote differences in the epidemiology of these viruses likely arise from other factors including high viral loads in the upper respiratory tract and the potential for individuals infected with cove nineteen to shed and transmit the virus while a symptom matic and quote. There are presently two hundred and seventy four surface disinfectants approved by the EPA for use against Kovic Nineteen Link to the list is in the show notes at this point with store shelves increasingly bear. I'm sure a lot of us are continuing to rely on delivery especially Amazon prime delivery to keep ourselves stocked up with everything we need so that we can shelter in place. Avoid going out to stores as much as possible and just generally socially distance well an article and vices motherboard talking about the broader strains to workers in the sorting facilities and also the people who have to deliver our stuff makes the point that maybe our delivery systems are endangered as well quote. Motherboards spoke to Amazon Logistics Labor experts. Who say it's only a matter of time? Before Amazon's prime signature two day delivery promise serious delays mistakes and widespread shortages due to increased demands from consumers also pressure on workers to meet rising production quotas restrictions on trade and the possibility of fulfillment centers being. Shut DOWN AS CORONA VIRUS SPREADS. Amazon's warehouse workers. Say they're already seeing increased workloads while fewer of their colleagues are showing up to work. According Labor organizers already Amazon's white collar workers have been asked to work from home. But that's obviously not an option for warehouse fulfillment workers and delivery drivers quote. It seems really likely that. Amazon's prime delivery system will falter Daniel flaming president of Economic Roundtable and an author of the two thousand nineteen report on Amazon's economic impact on southern California told motherboard. One day deliveries may not be made within one day if the workers who do show up to warehouses are more stress given bigger routes and are possibly less experienced incorrect deliveries will be made. The last mile segment of the delivery is very labor intensive and quote flaming ads. That were likely to see a close parallel of what happens in Amazon warehouses. During the holiday rush increase delays mistakes and bottlenecks. It would seem to me. Most likely that we'll see a drop in reliability and timeliness and quote but more than that the fear here is the same with the health system basically if too many people involved in the Amazon delivery chain are even temporarily sidelined by the disease at the same time. It's possible that even Amazon delivery could go down to say nothing of the potential disruption to the supply chain I e if even Amazon can't source enough goods to

Pokémon Go made easier to play at home

"Nine antics introducing some changes pokemon go due to corona virus is a blog post on the POKEMON. Go team they write trainers first of all labral community. Day has been postponed which I don't I don't play pokemon go but the idea that there's a thing called labral community day deal like lightens. My heart was shut to ever labral. Labral was always a catch though. Yes because every time you you'd see in the wild average Cadavre and Alec is they continue will also be making the following changes to go. I like gone gone is also great. Have you seen pouring onto like the sequel tumors evolution? Both kind of these one once. Yeah pouring on walls and importing onto all. Yeah I believe I think it's pouring onto okay. Yeah that's gone to and it's like all like sleek I'll tell you right now. Fucking sucks release. I don't like wearing on not pouring on. It's way better than this guy was pouring on three. I know if he was gone three. I'd look at a guy just released three three evolutions. Yeah that's legitimate. All most all have gone didn't have a an evolution for a while. I don't think we're going. I think he was trying to hold second gen on. Don't have lucians or only have two some have like nine E. V. O. Z. That real yeah no nothing. They continue their article or in their blog. Posts will also be making the following changes to Mongo which are effective starting now until further. Notice a one time. Purchase BUNDLE OF THIRTY CENTS FOR ONE pokey coin. Pokey Coin Incense will also last for one hour half hatched distance when eggs are placed into incubators during this time period. Poggi stop so now drop gifts more frequently. And then lastly POK Mon habitats will will increase and more procam on will be appearing in the in the wild us on social media opt in to receive push notifications and subscribe to all e mails stay tuned the Pokemon go team right. And that's all to account for everybody kind of being at home. Of course they don't want you wondering out there all sorts of people. Yeah Andrew Goldfarb tweets in context. Psa Book Mongo is currently selling thirty cents for one. Pokey coin One hundred coins. One dollar incense attracts POK Mon. Two Year location so this people stuck at home right now the also currently last one hour each instead of the usual thirty minutes. So if you're pokemon go player that's all news for you. That sounds awesome. And if you have been thinking about jumping in a book Mongo boom from the company owned home. You got to walk or anything.

"That's not the only anything at play currently because they don't have any kind of dominant position. Despite having like objectively the lowest energy costs right. So let me do what. What I'm saying is is that Big Star Fair? I guess what I'm talking about. Who can stand to profit starts kind of fair but then it it's slowly goes towards? You GotTa have a lot of money. You have to have a lot of knowledge to profit in because people people get better and better at making things in veteran better making a profit off of the things that they make so they become a monopoly. And I'd say I would I orchid. That's true if there's room to do that like using the airline argument right okay right like we say US three pretty sure we're tells you we can look at Bernales principle. We could make some fucking wing flaps we can figure out how to make should fly but to who profit in the airline industry. We're not just going to spin up an airplane overnight. NBC News Spirit Airlines in start making profit. It's going to be roundly. Ironically you picked an industry that's heavily subsidized by the US. Government and the European Union. Boeing Airbus right. What about every they don't hate on Embraer is there is a Brazilian? They produce a tremendous amount of the world's aircraft. I was there another example. It doesn't matter I in my opinion. You're right if the if an ECHINACEA for both Kinda right if there is room for people to get better and monopolize on information and there's an information asymmetry in the rules allow you to gain power over people because of that information asymmetry. People will do it. I'm telling you the goal of these systems is to try and minimize the ability to do that. It will always happen to some extent there will always be winners and losers of any game but the goal is to minimize the discrepancy between the the to. I also think this is a great transition into what you're about to speak on Corey regarding Blockchain as a social network right because one of the ideas of a blockchain network is. It's like a social network but a prove oblique neutral social network right. That's what we mean by censorship resistant. In the fact that anyone can join that anyone one who buys their way in can participate within the network. Right like that's part of the fundamental ethos of why we're building this. We're trying to build build a social network without the centralization and monopoly. That is facebook Amazon Netflix. Six Google they want to set that I basically if we make the assumption if we make the leap that the value transferring value a form of communication then the entire definition of blockchain networks works are is a social network. I have a really weird kind of example regarding the transfer value as a form communication Political sorry but it's Shimon sponsors the facts that money and and contributions into politics is equivalent to free speech therefore corporations are entitled to political contributions donations under citizens united the very controversial ruling but they argued successfully Supreme Court that political donations on on behalf of corporations is permissible as long as they're not in coordination with the campaign because it falls under free speech. That's wrong it is absolutely wrong. Let's let's terrible but like going going back to what I said like. How can you argue that? How is it not how is it not a social network? Wait I'm stuck on that instead. We should bring it up shifts like that's terrible. This is one of the most controversial political points of our generation but yes that is why. Hi there are so long or campaign contributions in politics in the United States the floodgates have been opened. It's called the citizens united ruling in the United States companies where people bro and they're entitled to free speech and because they're entitled to free speech entitled to Making Political Ads as long as they're not in coordination with the campaign I've got to fucking go protests out the cold bringing it up. Thought like it's so there is actual legal backing behind the definition of money equating waiting free speech. I don't even think you need to make that leap. You don't need that justification to say people transferring value from one to another is communication. It's a form of communication with the blockchain is by definition is a ledger. Historical record heard of all valid communication value value transactions. Yes I would say. Where is the the only where you're you're lacking a little bit in the blockchain network equal social network Comparison is that whereas like the personal relationship. Part of a blockchain network. It's out of stuff that you don't see the privacy associated with all of this stuff only thing you can see on on on on the blockchain data structure is a history of valid transactions. What you don't see is the Plethora of social relationships that led into those valid transactions? Now you can. You could garner specific types of information through forensics of that blockchain Allah the main reason elliptic and channels exists. which then allow you to deduce a lot of those social relationships? But that's what they are. It's it's the infrastructure for social network and it's the skeleton of all of its history. It's just all value this time. It's a valuable social network this time and if you think about the tribalism associated with how people stick their guns to a specific network that that definitely see where he comes from yes I mean I'm I'm like on the vents. Yes I the exact what you're saying in also like having a hard time if I go on either scanned right now plug in an address and I look at the history of what that addresses done. There's not a lot a lot that's GonNa show me the fingerprint. A fingerprint personal interactions all of the all of the APPS APPS and facilities in things that facilitated that transaction because like the blockchain the actual data structure is not the network. It's the validity of the network. And where you go to find like To prove who has done what the audibility of the social interactions in that Ed work the network itself is so much more. It's all the people all the APPS over relationships all the businesses all those things that we tend to not take into account. That's the network. That's the synergistic effect of all these things and all the people who spend their time and value and trust put into that network. That's much much larger than a blockchain itself just gives you the record of transactions within but like the whole thing the the blockchain network the a what you can build from that blockchain is is the social network. We just don't get to see that unless you're involved with those. Thanks so much like you know. You don't see all twitter you see what you're involved with or facebook or so and so forth that's that's why One of the research funding research scientists from Z.. Cash has basically called bitcoin twitter for your our bank account in the fact that you're literally making public broadcasts of transfers value right but another context the way later think about it is if you don't equate like your private key to your profile directly. There are examples if you you look on developers twitter handle and it's like vitale dot e that actually corresponds directly to a public public key. So if you look vitelic dot e it will resolve into a public he address. He's literally representing himself with a specific account. On a theory linking linking his identity to waste civic amount of money money movement and all the transactions actions and donations. He's made there's beautiful possibilities in that in that is when it comes to actually having I don't know like social economies. Like you'll know who to go to. Who's got the big bucks? You know what I mean like. Typically if you're identified like money investment dollars You GotTa talk in the right circles and walk in the right routes to get to that money but if there's like a project act that you know should be a funded by the masses than it would be interesting to see who actually was funding that the project is very open in very public in. I can put in Bitola dotty and see if he sent any money to my business idea. That's GonNa to help the masses. I think that's really cool. it's it's it's different because right now. I know I wouldn't want a by just looking at my financial identity. I don't want any of them. So technology's moving in a way that allows you to escape that if you want to. That's that's that's falls back into You've said this technology is allows for you to make the options you want and broadcasts or disclose the things that you what And there's certain aspects of that now in terms of using this technology in terms of what you link your name to and what you doubt it's getting better That that that amount of knowledge required to close that gap is getting better like this. This kind of leads into the other part that Kinda like framework I wanNA talk about to help. People sync offense things Like differentiate and understand how each project is different than another. And it's it's it's the it's the way I view how these networks are put together and then what optimizations where had to think about optimizations and what effects they have on the system when someone makes a new network that does something new. That's the kind of up some most vocal shit coined by the end of the Technological innovation to these systems where they apply it and how they do it gives you intuition what affected by half right. The first off is it makes no. We're going to try and okay okay cool. Yeah he lost screener. I can you try rephrasing. Actually I'll just start so a every blockchain network in existence. Today has a few different pieces that come together to make it work and I'll use all use bitcoin as the canonical canonical example of that it starts with signatures right digital signatures. And how I personally attest attest to a specific piece of information that I have. I say this is my piece of information and I'm going to sign it with something private something in public right side it says and so any one of the world can say okay cool anyone who has that secret piece of information came from them. It's whereas access that secret information Them that's that's digital secretary is a piece of ace type of asymmetric target. So it's it's there's nothing being put on a blockchain nothing it's people signing information with a specific type of signature scheme so that they can say. I attest to this piece of information..

"How long ago that we welcome to the Bitcoin by cans. Yeah there we go out. Share an intro music. I love eventually but I do really really liked once we have now they give BBC at gifts music on twitter. Go follow taught me how much you loved his intro. Because it's the ball so do miss the part. That says adoptions the only thing that matters we slowly drops that I don't know when it was natural we never had a discussion about it. It just out of the blue. Stop saying adoptions the only thing that matters because wants to realize to adopt it where like you guys go and moons later still there but like the quote unquote adoption in context has changed a bit over. I think over the years unlike who retired about reset option. But it's such a good team to senator the show around because you can never not talk about about adoption in who's GonNa adopted in why what's GonNa Cause when but anyways. This is the Bitcoin podcast episode. Two hundred ninety one we hope. Did you enjoy the recap year as a fine. Yeah it was you know what I think. We like. We could know twitter love. We literally had the cello. Maybe much the promoter of all the predictions in twenty what was GonNa Happen in two thousand nineteen shows was like ninety five percent correct Our twitter is everything that I do on. Twitter is through my name. I don't get on the PODCASTS twitter. Do stuff we need like a like a lunatic class less music at twitter glass game up we have someone who handles handles things postings. You should step this game or we need. We need like a a young whippersnapper to run our twitter account. I don't want that. Maybe I don't know I'm not no man word like we're like two years away away from getting okay boomer on a regular basis. I don't give up all right actually posted a really good article on our slack from Corey doctor yesterday and they basically basically talked about this hypothetical situation of where Free speech doesn't matter if you could only have free speech on someone else's walled garden and if twitter can silence or amplify by any voice that it chooses or like silence us for being like moderate temperate in our discussions about bitcoin while it amplifies anyone who's highly controversial reversal and says whatever they can just to get attention than like was appointed free speech. And it's also it's Antagonistic to ethos of crypto currencies. Have so much like power by operating in twitter's while garden and you know what's a before dive into that. Let's say who we are. So that's fucking shit out no heart. We're all right. The empty on the hosted talks i. I usually talk after de I'm cory and Lucian Lucian from Komo's dose of either Shauna Network has joined us the roundtable because I don't think we have a guest this episode. Do it We do not But our interviews abus dis pick up again for the year next week so We're just GONNA be presenting to you guys topics that piqued our interest. This week made my pants tight. Not Talking about yeah. Why don't we? I'm GonNa talk about something much more. It's GonNa take a while while they get through. So why don't we start with that stuff you mentioned no doubt Are we GONNA do the. How was your week thing or okay? Okay well so the topic that I want to bring up today was an article that I saw. Aw because if you listen to the show long enough you know that I love when I find an article that validates my bias and it confirms me and I love it. And many moons ago many rising of the tides. I had an idea not an idea. I thought that like it's only natural that cryptocurrency in proof of work mining is going to I Dunno hasten the need for more efficient energy production because if this thing becomes something that people need and people wanted then we can't just like burn the hell at a dinosaur bones to make money. We're GONNA have to start using windies a son. Jesus a maybe nuclear juice to to give these miners the power that they need to guess the random numbers writing eh collectively star calling win juice nuclear James Son Juice. Hey Man. I'm very very happy with those terms. I think. Sometimes you just break it on down all right. John Juice does sound like free son. Now we've it'd it'd be really easy marketing play for Caprice and to get in on the Sunday's game but if we're going to have to Become more efficient at these things because sometimes like sometimes the research and development doesn't take place until there's a need for it and maybe like I've been hearing about solar panels my entire air life like literally since I was eight and I was like. Oh yeah this is obvious. This is going to be solar panels on everything off a solar panel on my forearm that charges Ma body electricity devices. This is should that I thought when I was in my teens but obviously that's not really the case it hasn't been but maybe if you know cryptocurrency continues to be popular or grows in popularity and so the article is a Russian nuclear power plant is going to capitalize on big equipment. You're going to have you so take a nuclear power plant. Get some new juice in plop some mining forums right next to it and then put some power cables between them and that's what's happening in Russia in. That's the state goes in these but one do you guys think theory's bullshit. What was your thirty? Don't think he said it. My theory is that like crypto currencies are going to spur Green Energy energy development may go faster. This isn't green. Energy is not nuclear nuclear. That would not consider green. It's not renewable shape or form. Let's consider yellow green yellow. Is You can call it. Young efficient trolls incredibly efficient. Okay okay it relative to burn coal But I get what you're saying. Is that the because a part of this this Article says from a quota of imaging GOV which I probably pronounced incorrectly because I don't speak Russian cryptocurrency mining is the eleventh Lebanon's largest economy in the world and Russell. Tom Is the first State Corporation to adopt it So Judicially Russell Tom. Tom Plans to allow private businesses to use two hundred forty megawatts of its power for multiple locations. So they're subsidizing the cost of their energy if the people who are using it are running bitcoin miners. So this I guess is a state run goal to increase the bitcoin mining in that area of the world. That was the other point. I wanted to make that. You've reminded me is that we'll see a slow growth of more state subsidized mining operations around the globe. Accurate Buffalo's assuming that proof of work maintains it's heavy hand and how lead distributed consensus of Crypto currencies than. Yes we we will see more subsidies and development towards better energy sources of providing energy to Essex that run for for and I'll see the reason not to because as they as the crypto currencies gain value and end become more useful for cross border payments. It's a form of revenue to states to do this type of thing So it'd be can't keep burning coal period it since this is clearly according to them the eleventh largest economy in the world just cryptocurrency mining. Its that's a large economy and and states want to be involved with with world economies. This is direct way largest awkward twitter according to Him Ching Cov which which is. This article is written January ninth by Dmitar Bogdanov's of Invest Dot Com I envy easy DOT COM From reading here so a names that I can't pronounce appropriately Rhino articles by day and Fighting James Bond by night is what they're doing so that's why not i. I think this is relatively good thing. That states are getting getting involved with bitcoin mining or or or the What's the word before? Subsidization is Asian of the point mining too large companies because we want a larger disbursement of people who are doing mining across the globe. We don't want it all centralized into any given nation right now. Yeah it is. It is heavily centralized in Jane chain so I hope it adventure spreads and this is the type of stuff that helps spread that you though before the show you kinda like should mind. Yeah so the reason that bitcoin mining is heavily centralized in China is two fold. I there have a very large Computer chip production capability. So they're close to the producers of new six mining equipment that gives gives them like a competitive advantage because insiders newest equipment which means that they basically wiped everyone out when they were basically pre mining on things that they've sold other people so that basically like it's useful for a very specific amount of time until technology improves the. ACS gets even better will they. We're just hold your order and mine with your equipment for you by distrusted offic testing. And then you get your mining equipment and it's covered in like heat sink by. They basically like thermal compound because they literally just like slapped heat sinks onto it in mind mind for it over the productive lifetime of your equipment. That's why China has a monopoly but the other aspect to it is that China Heavily subsidizes energy consumption. In order to give it a global competitive advantage in key undeveloped regions right so the cost cost of energy consumption in key. Parts of China is subsidized by the federal government which by the way is in a contradiction to WTO regulations but China doesn't follow at anyways so that actually like those two things world trade which China's success now let's take the Russia's story and compare it to that fossils Asari. Nuclear power is always Subsidized by the state because nuclear power plants are not profitable unless the state provides them with insurance right just just because of chair noble in Three Mile Island it is impossible to get private insurance for a nuclear power plant in the developed world right so as a result. Nuclear power is subsidized energy. No matter what but on top of that this is probably old existing mystic infrastructure. This wasn't a new nuclear power. Plant built explicitly four efficient bitcoin mining. Now this is an existing power plant which which decided to actually get into the CRYPTO currency mining space. Then you have to ask why we try to make this Book Money Losing Asia. It's actually more simple than that. It's because the Russian economy is crap like the entire economy is less productive than it was before the the collapse of the Soviet Union. Russia itself isn't oligarchy narco-state basically right. It's a giant criminal organization. And that is the Russian state right. There's no difference between the Mafia and the Russian government they get hit yet medicare. I mean it's obvious obvious reason. There's a reason that Allah guards literally run the country right and there's a reason that Vladimir Ademir uproot ends piano teacher for his daughter has half a billion dollars in Panama Right. It's a dysfunctional. Aw Oligarchy Society and it's a criminal organization so what happened. There economy collapsed and it's never recovered lost about half of its value after the imposition Russian of US sanctions after the invasion of Ukraine. Like half of its out so you have a nuclear power plant. That's producing a consistent amount of energy. But they don't have an economy to actually consume energy. So what do they do. They burn it in the form of mining bitcoin. Right right and on top of that. The state oligarchs who run a state owned enterprise can then launder bitcoin into into the ecosystem.

I love eventually but I do really really liked once we have now they give BBC at gifts music on twitter. Go follow taught me how much you loved his intro. Because it's the ball so do miss the part. That says adoptions the only thing that matters we slowly drops that I don't know when it was natural we never had a discussion about it. It just out of the blue. Stop saying adoptions the only thing that matters because wants to realize to adopt it where like you guys go and moons later still there but like the quote unquote adoption in context has changed a bit over. I think over the years unlike who retired about reset option. But it's such a good team to senator the show around because you can never not talk about about adoption in who's GonNa adopted in why what's GonNa Cause when but anyways. This is the Bitcoin podcast episode. Two hundred ninety one we hope. Did you enjoy the recap year as a fine. Yeah it was you know what I think. We like. We could know twitter love. We literally had the cello. Maybe much the promoter of all the predictions in twenty what was GonNa Happen in two thousand nineteen shows was like ninety five percent correct Our twitter is everything that I do on. Twitter is through my name. I don't get on the PODCASTS twitter. Do stuff we need like a like a lunatic class less music at twitter glass game up we have someone who handles handles things postings. You should step this game or we need. We need like a a young whippersnapper to run our twitter account. I don't want that. Maybe I don't know I'm not no man word like we're like two years away away from getting okay boomer on a regular basis. I don't give up all right actually posted a really good article on our slack from Corey doctor yesterday and they basically basically talked about this hypothetical situation of where Free speech doesn't matter if you could only have free speech on someone else's walled garden and if twitter can silence or amplify by any voice that it chooses or like silence us for being like moderate temperate in our discussions about bitcoin while it amplifies anyone who's highly controversial reversal and says whatever they can just to get attention than like was appointed free speech. And it's also it's Antagonistic to ethos of crypto currencies. Have so much like power by operating in twitter's while garden and you know what's a before dive into that. Let's say who we are. So that's fucking shit out no heart. We're all right. The empty on the hosted talks i. I usually talk after de I'm cory and Lucian Lucian from Komo's dose of either Shauna Network has joined us the roundtable because I don't think we have a guest this episode. Do it We do not But our interviews abus dis pick up again for the year next week so We're just GONNA be presenting to you guys topics that piqued our interest. This week made my pants tight. Not Talking about yeah. Why don't we? I'm GonNa talk about something much more. It's GonNa take a while while they get through. So why don't we start with that stuff you mentioned no doubt Are we GONNA do the. How was your week thing or okay? Okay well so the topic that I want to bring up today was an article that I saw. Aw because if you listen to the show long enough you know that I love when I find an article that validates my bias and it confirms me and I love it. And many moons ago many rising of the tides. I had an idea not an idea. I thought that like it's only natural that cryptocurrency in proof of work mining is going to I Dunno hasten the need for more efficient energy production because if this thing becomes something that people need and people wanted then we can't just like burn the hell at a dinosaur bones to make money. We're GONNA have to start using windies a son. Jesus a maybe nuclear juice to to give these miners the power that they need to guess the random numbers writing eh collectively star calling win juice nuclear James Son Juice. Hey Man. I'm very very happy with those terms. I think. Sometimes you just break it on down all right. John Juice does sound like free son. Now we've it'd it'd be really easy marketing play for Caprice and to get in on the Sunday's game but if we're going to have to Become more efficient at these things because sometimes like sometimes the research and development doesn't take place until there's a need for it and maybe like I've been hearing about solar panels my entire air life like literally since I was eight and I was like. Oh yeah this is obvious. This is going to be solar panels on everything off a solar panel on my forearm that charges Ma body electricity devices. This is should that I thought when I was in my teens but obviously that's not really the case it hasn't been but maybe if you know cryptocurrency continues to be popular or grows in popularity and so the article is a Russian nuclear power plant is going to capitalize on big equipment. You're going to have you so take a nuclear power plant. Get some new juice in plop some mining forums right next to it and then put some power cables between them and that's what's happening in Russia in. That's the state goes in these but one do you guys think theory's bullshit. What was your thirty? Don't think he said it. My theory is that like crypto currencies are going to spur Green Energy energy development may go faster. This isn't green. Energy is not nuclear nuclear. That would not consider green. It's not renewable shape or form. Let's consider yellow green yellow. Is You can call it. Young efficient trolls incredibly efficient. Okay okay it relative to burn coal But I get what you're saying. Is that the because a part of this this Article says from a quota of imaging GOV which I probably pronounced incorrectly because I don't speak Russian cryptocurrency mining is the eleventh Lebanon's largest economy in the world and Russell. Tom Is the first State Corporation to adopt it So Judicially Russell Tom. Tom Plans to allow private businesses to use two hundred forty megawatts of its power for multiple locations. So they're subsidizing the cost of their energy if the people who are using it are running bitcoin miners. So this I guess is a state run goal to increase the bitcoin mining in that area of the world. That was the other point. I wanted to make that. You've reminded me is that we'll see a slow growth of more state subsidized mining operations around the globe. Accurate Buffalo's assuming that proof of work maintains it's heavy hand and how lead distributed consensus of Crypto currencies than. Yes we we will see more subsidies and development towards better energy sources of providing energy to Essex that run for for and I'll see the reason not to because as they as the crypto currencies gain value and end become more useful for cross border payments. It's a form of revenue to states to do this type of thing So it'd be can't keep burning coal period it since this is clearly according to them the eleventh largest economy in the world just cryptocurrency mining. Its that's a large economy and and states want to be involved with with world economies. This is direct way largest awkward twitter according to Him Ching Cov which which is. This article is written January ninth by Dmitar Bogdanov's of Invest Dot Com I envy easy DOT COM From reading here so a names that I can't pronounce appropriately Rhino articles by day and Fighting James Bond by night is what they're doing so that's why not i. I think this is relatively good thing. That states are getting getting involved with bitcoin mining or or or the What's the word before? Subsidization is Asian of the point mining too large companies because we want a larger disbursement of people who are doing mining across the globe. We don't want it all centralized into any given nation right now. Yeah it is. It is heavily centralized in Jane chain so I hope it adventure spreads and this is the type of stuff that helps spread that you though before the show you kinda like should mind. Yeah so the reason that bitcoin mining is heavily centralized in China is two fold. I there have a very large Computer chip production capability. So they're close to the producers of new six mining equipment that gives gives them like a competitive advantage because insiders newest equipment which means that they basically wiped everyone out when they were basically pre mining on things that they've sold other people so that basically like it's useful for a very specific amount of time until technology improves the. ACS gets even better will they. We're just hold your order and mine with your equipment for you by distrusted offic testing. And then you get your mining equipment and it's covered in like heat sink by. They basically like thermal compound because they literally just like slapped heat sinks onto it in mind mind for it over the productive lifetime of your equipment. That's why China has a monopoly but the other aspect to it is that China Heavily subsidizes energy consumption. In order to give it a global competitive advantage in key undeveloped regions right so the cost cost of energy consumption in key. Parts of China is subsidized by the federal government which by the way is in a contradiction to WTO regulations but China doesn't follow at anyways so that actually like those two things world trade which China's success now let's take the Russia's story and compare it to that fossils Asari. Nuclear power is always Subsidized by the state because nuclear power plants are not profitable unless the state provides them with insurance right just just because of chair noble in Three Mile Island it is impossible to get private insurance for a nuclear power plant in the developed world right so as a result. Nuclear power is subsidized energy. No matter what but on top of that this is probably old existing mystic infrastructure. This wasn't a new nuclear power. Plant built explicitly four efficient bitcoin mining. Now this is an existing power plant which which decided to actually get into the CRYPTO currency mining space. Then you have to ask why we try to make this Book Money Losing Asia. It's actually more simple than that. It's because the Russian economy is crap like the entire economy is less productive than it was before the the collapse of the Soviet Union. Russia itself isn't oligarchy narco-state basically right. It's a giant criminal organization. And that is the Russian state right. There's no difference between the Mafia and the Russian government they get hit yet medicare. I mean it's obvious obvious reason. There's a reason that Allah guards literally run the country right and there's a reason that Vladimir Ademir uproot ends piano teacher for his daughter has half a billion dollars in Panama Right. It's a dysfunctional. Aw Oligarchy Society and it's a criminal organization so what happened. There economy collapsed and it's never recovered lost about half of its value after the imposition Russian of US sanctions after the invasion of Ukraine. Like half of its out so you have a nuclear power plant. That's producing a consistent amount of energy. But they don't have an economy to actually consume energy. So what do they do. They burn it in the form of mining bitcoin. Right right and on top of that. The state oligarchs who run a state owned enterprise can then launder bitcoin into into the ecosystem.

"Of post processing in our own way right and western Western Ukwa but interesting things you just mentioned one minute ago that you know you had this moment where you ask yourself. Why am I doing it? Why all this photography for did you come up with an answer? Why are you doing it? What's the what was the main motivation for you? All of you know getting those pictures going out there than than sharing them with the world could you. Would you be able to define it as a really tough question. Because I I don't know it's I I love. I don't know what it is inside of me but I always get really excited when I I'm sure you feel it too every so often you get like an image. Yeah that's that's really good inside of me that such like an endorphin rush. I love it I finally did it but like why why am I doing it. I don't know just just the drive. I have the drive your sure. I know what you're talking about is sharing sharing your images with the viewer. Also like an endorphin kickoff. Is it important very important for you that you have this reaction of the viewer always addresses itself standing there on the streets. Is this moment more satisfying for you. I mean yes and no. I think I get a lot of joy just looking at the photos. I've taken soon. Something that's good saw. Aw I appreciate that but also just the interaction because I have people like me on instagram. Even something like this. It was really fun I get to talk to other other people about the target is something that I love and so when I can share in image that I'm really proud of and other people are like. Oh yes that's that's Gutu as it does feel good. I can't lie that I get excited when other people like what I'm doing is very Very rewarding so in the end it's a it's it's the total the entire package that makes it all worth while and yeah. Yeah makes you grab this camera again and go out again right. Yeah it also I think a lot of my followers on on his six. Am they've never been to Korea before so you know. I get messages all the time like. Oh I wish I could go to Korea like so nicer like see it through images. I get really excited about those people as well because I feel like I'm Sharing Korea in Seoul with other people and as much as I love Tiger also love soul as well in Korea. So it's nice to be able to share this with other people as well in that regard. I think you are doing wonderful job. You know I think the Korean Nuno Board of Tourism should be in touch with you. I don't know maybe they were or you know about the get them to contact my best. Thank you thank you. Yeah you have daily Job Right. I don't know about family mentioned you have family. You decide my wife. No kids most probably really struggling with another two things which which most of us struggled with the first one is time photograph. How do I can imagine you are getting very busy? You know depending on the school you know schedule and so one how do you do you have those moments where you struggle with finding time and if so did you come up with any kind of ideal or a system for yourself you know some people are scheduling their the photograph blocks in their calendars. I not such really how how do you. How do you tackle this this problem of the lack of time? That's the biggest thing like to be. It's not you and I. I wished I quit my job and I'm just focused on photography time but this is not realistic right now at least So how to make money somehow to continue you know paying the bills so it can't be really frustrating. Also the job is a kindergarten. Teacher antiques. Elementary students as well as teaching English. So it can be really demanding to so my energy. 'cause they're so so high energy as matched that I have to teach swimming. There's goes into planning the classes and everything like that so they it does take away from like my mental focus on photography. I need to focus on the job as well But I know that once I leave the school at the end of the day like bedtime is mine and so usually what I do is on the weekends. I'll go go on shoot as much as I can on Saturday and Sunday and then usually would on the On the weekdays afterward from about six six to seven ish. I'll try to edit at the photos. I took the past weekend very lucky. My wife is very supportive so she understands saint said with great you know I wanna go out and I want to take photos. That's okay. I mean she's busy too as well so she into photography due to some extent or not at all. Yeah not as much as me I think she she likes to go take photos. I The I wish you would but I don't think she takes her. I think she enjoys saying it. Through my eyes and like living vicariously through remake but she does have a good thing like yeah. Of course she does she is she good critic like you know same here my wife kind of really but she doesn't shoot really herself but you know sometimes she will go up and hey Tamasha Jesse raise it right now. uh-huh that's exactly the thing that I really appreciate with our marriage is you're on instagram. Owes straightness so good this great but my wife she will be like now. I don't really like that that much that look at it like I thought you know it would then. Of course she's right. I think it's great to have somebody like this right. I really love it as Okay so slow. It means excellent. So it's mainly weekends for you when you shoot short right but you mentioned also you you try to have the camera with you at all times so if there is something happening when you commute you know going back between in your work and so on your kind of ready the cameras we know back right. Yeah yeah I try to. I try to bring my camera to work covering dislike small lungs and so it's not too heavy on so I been trying to bring it more often and it's really really nice as well and those those weekends. Let's say because it must be happening. Also I mean I know it very well. There might be a weekend Saturday. They were you know you probably planning to go out but you but you simply don't feel like maybe you're tired or maybe maybe it's raining outside it which by the way you should never be an excuse. Rise amazed but if you don't feel like going out and it has been you know maybe two weekends Nero. Would you then push yourself kind of to know James. Just stand up go out or or would you wait rather wait for this moment where you I really feel like going out again. If I'm being completely honest I don't know if there's ever been I I always going. Yeah but no I mean there are. There are a few days like that saw on days like that. I'll probably just walk around my neighborhood. The beautiful beautiful thing about Seoul is that every streets were the interesting. So even though O'Brien live May Not be where all the tourists are flocking to or like the most beautiful for images are being taken. Here's silver leading trusting the streets around so yeah I'll just go out and shoot for you know thirty thirty minutes or so and then we have something for the day or like I'll go up to my rooftop on my apartment womb beautiful cities faiths and see the mountains fountains everything so so I think there's always something to photograph soy. I at least try to go out or honestly like if I'm really tired I really don't want to know why force myself. I think photography is a lot of fun. I really enjoy the process a lot but if I'm not feeling on it than you. I don't think there's anything bad james one number your number one golden tape you know dead Dosso W-was who are industry for one. Golden tape can be technical nontechnical. One that you think would improve our our street photography like you. I know right away the one tip I give. It took me forever to learn and don't be afraid Take as many photos as you can. Don't be afraid of being bold and I know that's definitely way easier said than done by the moment that I stopped caring caring about what other people would think is when I think that my photos wants to the next level so if I if I see something that I really like just do it. Just take the photo bold. Go though taking if somebody gets upset issues like the at the end of the world. You're going to be finding I think by the same token like eight. It takes practice to be he that bold. Sometimes I know for a lot of people street. Photography's scary but I think the more you do it the more near you kinda push yourself to inches. Take the photo that you want. Then I think you'll start seeing a lot of good results at least for me. The more like bold. I've gotten the more positive interaction I've had it in a lot of people would be more surprised that there's a ton of people that are really kind of excited to see what you're doing it kind of breaks up there monotony. Somebody's taking a photo of me. That's Kinda cool. That's your onto some average. Joe Like a you it'd never you'll have those interactions. If you just weren't at least a little bit more bullets go. Do it. Also say Ford stood listen great I think let's delighting around all right. I'm ready your favorite Korean dish While I'm actually Vegan so my My Wife Screen Kimchi Fried Rice aperture priority shutter priority or full manual absar priority already. His sunny outside before manual if the sun is going down three elements that make up for a good photograph that this is the hardest one I but they came over the lighting composition and a good balance in the image new clothes or newlands new lens one hundred percent. I don't care about those photographer I should interview next. This is the hardest one because there's so many people but I have the one guy who I really loved the most on instagram. Look at his feet. All the time is Craig Whitehead. He goes by six street under if you interviewed him. I would. He super excited about that. But I think he's awesome. James sank so much was wonderful. We are at forty minutes mark. Here enjoy stick to what you're doing. I really love your images album and many people do and I hope you to meet you next Simon Soul when when visiting right would be amazing. Yep please do anytime. You're here or anybody.

"Other cities in the US the people are describing their cars. So it's not Late if you WANNA go to a convenience store the US drive your yea whereas here you have to go down. You're walk there in his convenience really nice. I love that so much. And what in terms of because you mentioned you like having people also so you know like getting maybe close to them or including them in your photos. I think this is interesting. What about the reactions? You know guy was a camera because this is always a so differs from country to country. I think so. How are Koreans reacting when they are seeing you out there you know pointing the camera at them this is. This is kind of been a hot topic of my thing right away because Kriens very word. They're very private. They don't like to have their photos taken and so in other. That's very different from what I'm used to in the the. US Were I. Don't think people in the US are really you know they're not there to be models all the time on the street but they probably don't care as much whereas here if they see gave me with my camera there might there in front of their face or they might not wanna walk away. I've never had anybody come up with Yellow Mike by and yeah I think to be honest since I am white living in a country where every was Korean force. You will probably think that I'm just a tourist uh-huh taking in the sights and stuff like I was about to ask you did. Did this thing that they might be stinkier tourist or you think it helps. Oh Yeah Yeah. I think it helps a lot because if I work Rian as you know this team you take photos they'd probably personally out career and always just a white guys traveling here. No harm there. Do you speak Korean. I CAN ASSUME YOU DO I. I certainly not fluent by any means but I can. I can get by but then then you can you know so you're undercover can can vanish immediately when you oh when you would talk back to Korea would realize almost like loco no no I don't speak Green Yeah I don't know but like I said like Instagram I've been surprised at how positive people have been in response to more photos. I've been posting lately where he can clearly see people's faces There's always somebody who will get angry about that and I totally understand it but after shooting street photography for no really almost two years here. I've had so many photos that I really disliked because just be the back of somebody's head or I. It felt like the image is really good but I would. I would never post it because of their faces. So I've been trying to push it a little bit and see see what. The reaction was I've been pleasantly surprised that allow a lot of people are pretty. They're fond of the work. Actually that can show Korea in in positive light because of course I'm not going to be posting any images that are unfavourable. I think the all the images are pretty harmless. If the end of the day I think a lot of the Koreans of at least I hope they recognized that do do you have many Koreans actually following your account. I tried to check the analytics and I from what I can tell maybe about. Forty percent of my followers followers are actually living in Korea. Nice so I. I don't know if that's other foreigners mainly following me but yeah from what I can tell. There are a good amount of variance. Follow recently. I think it was probably maybe a few weeks ago. You posted a photo of this lovely kind of it. It was an older gentleman Korean guy and you wrote he was his English was not bad at all. And so you had an interaction right with your with your subject. Alright yeah I remember right so it does it. Does it happen. Does it happen a lot that you actually interact with your subjects or because of their shyness or privacy concerns. They tend to walk away. Oh Yeah I guess. I should say that that I've been trying to be a bit more bold in like go to people and be like. Hey can I take your photo. The photo that you're referencing that guy. He actually came up to me. What's actually happens fairly often? People will see me and they they come up and we'll talk to me try and sell something or give me to join their church or something like that. I try I try to have some kind of interaction action with the person so I'm not just like sneakily taken the photo odd I think in most cases people clearly understand that I'm taking taking a photo and amid like emotion to them with my camera light. Can I take your photo than if I can honey gauge their reaction if they're like all DUnno then of course with the camera way but most people are disgruntling. Oh okay that's fine Go forward so with those people. I'll I'll take take the photo few times. You time to show them the photo. Oh great great But yeah young down by the same token I've had plenty people all no no no and so you just have to respect that as well. Don't those who you know are happy for you taking their the images do you kind of try staying connected. You know telling them about where the photo will end up on your instagram account on your website. Are you trying to kind of share the photo after the fact after you have worked on it later wisdom. Does it happen as well or yet again Ed. More recently I've been trying to be a little bit more bold in stuff like that. So ally images I take are like older Order a AW grandparent's So so I will try to Kinda show like Oh instagram. You'll get like all okay. Okay I don't know. INSTAGRAM program is but a fake. Good so you have to go on Kataoka right. Yeah I'll take my favorite emojis. Wonderful James I have one more question here from from from Gazelles Miss. She's asking Sushi's saw on your website that you teach children right here. You're an English teacher as correct. I am that pays the bills. So that's why excellent do you teach or give them those the children. You're teaching opportunity to to photograph something to you. Like include photography into a teaching in some way. Not I really wish I could but it was like the curriculum I think that would he allowed but I did. There was a friend of mine here who was also a teacher does photography defeat and he gave all of students a little. Disposable camera may told them take the disposable camera. Go out take all your photos or take take as many photos as you want with it and bring it back. Then he So you take those cameras got the film developed in the pictures Brinton any give back to the kids and then with those images. Yeah the kids you'll write about it. Write about the experience I was like. Wow Oh wow. That's really amazing. I really need to do something like that so so no I unfortunately i. I can't do that with my kids but I really wish like exciting so I think that's a really amazing Arctic On you talk to my boss. I think it'd be fun. Yeah great listen. Let's let's go into some and the other set of questions kind of more general ones. I mean you mentioned you have been photographing now for sold for two years right correct. Yeah will be here three three years and then I bought a camera about two years. Now my shooting Tuesday's Right now I have a Sony. A seven three the. I love abyss. Someone I used to have a cannon five mark to out which again was great camera but the tanner was so big in heavy. that it wasn't really good good for street Through work but the Sony. It's really small like with the murless and I love is really good. The auto focus is really quick. It was so neither the detection so even if I turn it take a quick shot at through really quick. Picking up a focus. Right on the person's I in so Oh really lucky that everything's in focus. I don't it's really easy as well so I really love it for streets. Excellent I saw exactly so heavy shooting now for two years right like you say you have different days. Sometimes you have the feeling you have seen it all and other days where you know visit different neighborhoods get inspired again. And so on. So as I understand like all of us you have those moments or maybe even longer phases of like kind of a creative give block right so is relation goes a little bit down and so one when you are aware that something like this is happening like you know when when there is is this creative seeing is kind of in in Lausanne what what are the things. How do you beat this kind of condition? Like how do you give yourself kick again. What's what's the trick here? Yeah I mean it's tough because it happens more often than I was. Would you are not alone. Don't worry I know that but for me it's just no. I keep taking photos to be honest recently like in the past month I felt like what am I doing with photography autocracy like why. Why am I doing this snow longer? Fun Soul the only remedy for that was take. My camera goes shoot some more and you know something just by stopped shooting. I'm not gonNA figure out what the problem is not going to get that one a good image from the day that were Mike. Yes that was. That was a For me I decided to Kinda keep going. I also have been trying to build my collection of photography books like magazines and so I I try to look at all those books again. There's usually something in there or all wild. I like the way he was able to frame up that shot like. Maybe I can try to do something like that. It's different So I try to really look at other people's this work as well and see figure out what I really enjoy from their work and then just try to recreate that. Even if I'm turning to steal Oh like the idea the concept but at least it's fun for me to try to emulate what we we all we all get inspired We digest so many different visual. You know influences from all directions and there's nothing wrong it's some people call it like stealing but you know it's not stealing you just seeing things and then you know digesting them.

Or is that is that i mean six is like six could be five. You know what i mean. Also i will say this in all fairness. A drinking is part of our louis park. Also i five p._m. December is very different than five a._m. In august oh also five p._m. In august this office is we don't have co workers so anyways right so it's like okay so the little ripper is it's also something that i either start when i'm cooking either start or end my my entire cooking and or meal with so it's literally a small glass. Maybe six ounce glass filled to the top with ice about an ounce and a half two ounces of again individual serving club. Soda has to be super super bubbly super carbonated fuss about soda always always keep yourself clubs out of colt always add affects the carbonation the density of the bubbles and everything absolutely great and then a little bit of whatever a pair tito. I'm i'm feeling at the moment like right now like right now. It is for dave read. <hes> which is <hes> an a bitter are in jeopardy. Let's made in bed stuy brooklyn. Okay okay but the night before it was leopold brothers from denver okay <hes> their effort so a little splash. You're not going heavy on either club soda katito again maybe like an outs- ounce and a half and then squeeze a lemon juice lemon rind and crush green olive and that's it is cativa and soda but just as much soda as aperitif. Oh as lemon juice lemon rind. It's the perfect low palate cleansers amazing amazing. It's okay so i'm with you. I assume that the olive the brightness of the all of serves serves a similar purpose as salt on the rim of a margarita saltiness to balance the acid in sweetness and and that's also some in italy italy. I guess i've never ever do this but sometimes you do an olive with is it a <hes> a campari's or it's not unheard of totally totally and also just like a classic apple spritz yeah. I've been always agreeing olive oyl see. I think you're gonna say i need it. That's all right so my whole thing about about this. Drink right and we talk about this with cooking all the time is that it's everything's about balance right is a dish. That's all acid. You can't have a dish. That's all sugar. You can't have a dish. That's all salt great the they have to play off each other and they have to balance each other. You get this product that is a balanced complete expression of whatever you're trying to cook right and that should should always be the same ideal with cocktails like with the the little ripper right. You've got the sweetness of the operative. Oh you've got the bright liveliness leanest soda you have the acid lemon juice and then you have the brightness of the like. It's very simple but they're all they're. They're playing with each other super. Super simple super balanced little river. Do you only make this yourself or do you

Get a lot of to kill any type of to kill you. You definitely want to keep it bronco. You don't wanna go for or anything like that. <hes> representa- sorry sorry he'll he'll none none of the stuff and then you're gonna do a little bit grapefruit juice so it's three quarters quarters of an ounce of grape juice doubled it okay and then a little bit of lime juice and that's also <hes> that's one ounce of juice news and then this is where it kinda secure word like in pretty much in the margarita young paloma territory then you add half an ounce campari so <hes> um and the campari ads this bitterness to it a little bit of that leg orangey aspect and it's kind of a game changer so shing also if there's fresh juice cocktail always taken you never stir a cocktail fresh juice and it never gets evenly distributed. It'll never get that frothy rathi beautiful super tropical character that you want and shake until it is quite so m. f. is gonna blow out the it it all right. How did you decide that. That was enough that this was enough. Yeah i mean you can when it starts to get like so-called that your hand can kind of not really take it anymore and that the entire shakers curse frost over totally be yeah <hes> now. Let's see if we can get this okay and then. I think you're gonna want ice cubes for this. I love this because you can drink it straight up or with ice really drink it straight up next pretty little coop class or something correct. We we have a couple <hes> couple of rocks classes here. I'll give you some of this and it's ah nice pink color. Oh it's gorgeous look at so summary yeah and usually this is done with like a a lime wedge <unk> as a garnish. <hes> i like to double down on the grapefruit was like a nice little grapefruit peel so it's not a wedge. You do wedges well you. The color is on a magical. Isn't it because it's it's like a a really intense pink. Yes the grapefruit and the campari during the work a sip of this yeah i had thoughts. It's interesting because the grapefruit in the campari sorry i think together somehow suggest saltiness like when you get assault on the rim of marguerite but there's no soul to near no so <hes> <hes> what mysterious forces i i'm going to say this. I don't know i i would i would maybe like a lime wedge. I want a a little bit of that lima lima instead of that sort of zip it up. I miss delicious. I would also i might. I don't know i i've seen with whether or not like a paloma. Why would i want to split it up with little clubs. You absolutely could what i like about. Spritz clubs out spritz everything but in the summertime it's nice because it extends drink yeah so instead of having a four ounce drink. You could have six or eight ounce. Shrink for sure and if you're just kind of hanging out outside on deck or whatever it's nice suggest not pound a drink and four minutes. If i go wow okay. I guess i'm having another totally like this is. It's a bit more grown up than 'cause it doesn't have the sweetness of margarita no <hes> and this is also the thing about the siesta you can you can do simple syrup in it right and that's what honestly most people do for the sake of time. I didn't have time to the simple syrup. <hes> i think it functioned almost as well without it but it's a way more assertive two things i would maybe do a i don't like switching. Maybe do a suggestion of simple syrup. Also i think would also can influence the drink. Flavor is depending especially in the winter. You can get some really sweet juicy grapefruit for sure in that very much would affect the flavor announced. He never used kearton grapefruit juice. No always <hes> but yeah so i might do it. It depends on the sweetness of the grapefruit juice might inform inform how much simple syrup.

We don't want brown or no you want to see this like rose the goal yeah and obviously the more apple use the more spaghetti and look for those that are worried about how this is going to photograph. Let me try this now yeah right. It's like highlights better. That's exactly what it's like. It's the perfect combination of the spritz is that you want late summer. The cold cold ice beard that maybe with you a couple of ice cubes actually in the bay area. I might do it in the you know what i might do. I might drink half of it in the bottle then pour the second the second over ice. That's really nice. I like it also as much as i love. The highlight bottle can be a little sticky tasting. Sometimes that is sort of it gives a nice little acidic by to it. Have you ever done it with campari. Instead of apple i have i've actually done. I'm the person that has like forty bottles of amari ari and aperitif t._v. of read about it so yeah i've i've been subbing in tons of different stuff just to see what works. It definitely works with campari. You just have to go a little later on the lemon juice because there's more bitterness in campari then there is an apple but it's also really great with chey nar. You can still go one to one with the charts. Awesome g._r.'s wanna made from artichokes yeah. It's like low.

They're eating drinking drinking foods. They love etc. Check it out out high recommend by not all right now john. Let's do plug. That was delicious love. It was number. Two all right number. Two is kind of when we talk about like simple cocktails hardly ever do we talk about new cocktails right like they're. They're always cocktails have been around since the forty s or the fifty exactly exactly exactly so this cocktail was invented in two thousand six by katie stipe. She's a new york city bartender pretty legendary <hes> and it's called the siesta was it was wizard any debate that she invented it to someone else who knows this well. I'm sure there's always going to be someone who says but she is credited as inventing this okay <hes> and so so this yesterday is a tequila based cocktail. I'm going to try and get in boston shaker there. That is a boston shaker to part with the stranger. This is a tequila based cocktail and it's kind of a mix between paloma and hemingway decorate an like. I like where you're going so taking me down to the trough as a result of mexico mexico also there's going to be is she got shakeout.

Do you have like not one but two sheets raised. You've got measuring cups in those like slanted oxo ones with the measurements on the side and spouts. You gotta think ice. You have a mixer. You have two bottles of miller highlight and it's like four zero two pm. That's they think the appropriate time so these are three three drinks to make yes before submarines before summer where we're in the eleventh hour yeah right seriously. I mean may not joining down all right but what i do about this spread. You got a lot of ice. It's hot as hell out today ninety three tomorrow. I need something something called yeah so whatever you want what what are we started with okay so you may be familiar with the name emily schultz. She works for e._m._c. Does he exit e._m._p. Yes she and i were recently in baltimore way question. Yes amway sosas handle on instagram or slack or something or where's where's the e._m._p. Meet with the p o. I think she her her middle name is pearl home p. P. is yeah okay. That's vital information forever the lessons no she's. She's a <hes> she's a drink susie. She is she is so so emily and i were both at wet city which is a brewery slash rush bar in baltimore maryland and we had a couple of hours to kill before dinner and we'd we arrived at this place and we both got a beer and we're looking at the menu and at at the bottom of the you know like the little happy hour card that they kind of just like place on the bar in has the specials and it's like two dollars off a pint of whatever between five and sent it often gets neglected. No one really looks at that. I feel like but at the bottom there was something that you said spaghetti spaghetti without the is spaghetti five dollars and you're like i mean would or even yeah even if i'm lou the bartender and he's like well. It's some ridiculous. I'm still gonna order. It's called spaghetti so we order to them and the bartender plops down a bottle of miller high life is just so far okay yeah and then he drains a little bit off the top and throw some adderall and some lemon juice in it and just pushes it across the bar and i was kind of saying saying anything he yeah he's like this is what spaghettis and then did. It and emily are both sitting there. We're like okay yeah very into this entire situation so so that's what we're gonna do right now to open also yeah. This is like a lot of a lot of oh my god back all right so i is you open your preferably a bottle of highlife right. It doesn't need to be highlight though as long as it's an american logger auger that is not a light lager it has to be like a you know a regular budweiser lager. Would you say an actual beer regular beer beer. American can be an american bean kraft nonsense not nike and also the one the one reason why you do use a bottle of miller high life is because the bottle miller high life is the the best bottle ever made. Yes absolutely i mean look at that label. You take a sip. Yes so you take it also so you got a clear a little bit of space in there. How much do we want. Is your one large sip say so you went to the below the x. label talk show that i poured i'm used this out so there's two ounces limoges here poor half of that and i will have does it matter. If you go lemon or or april i i have been doing lemon first and then after all just because i think apple is a little bit heavier and it'll sync down yep <hes> an more evenly distribute distribute. It's also like this isn't. This isn't dogmatic here. No it's like no yourself. You know what i mean. If you want something that leans more apparati go in favor of the apple if you want something leans more tart going favor the problem probably more of a lemming. I can go to sweet sometimes. That's fair unless about why it's called spaghetti okay so i don't know there's probably a very small.

If i'm gonna learn from somebody i wanted to work for daniel collude and that was a really eye opening experience because it was such an intense kitchen and it was intense. I mean i i you know looking back on it. It's you have to have a really thick skin and i think that it was just there was no there was no making a mistake right there. I was young my first rail like intense new york experience and it was at this restaurant that was as you know the highest of the high and you go in and you you feel you're stressed out all the time but i did learn a lot and you know adam schefter chef de cuisine at time and i learned a largest by watching him because he wasn't very chatting the kitchen but he was just very focused and he was just like like we're gonna do everything right like everybody was on the same page and so i think for me working in that environment can set a tone for me yeah <hes> so that was kind of my goal of just like learning from the best and i just because i didn't plan being this country.

It's more like it's like different classrooms. <hes> you know <hes> but you know when you're in an independent restaurant that is is focused on certain. Everybody knows what's going on whereas being in a resort. It's more spread out <hes> <hes> but i it was actually a good experience to have. That's that hotel experience at a young age and then going to independent restaurant you know it it keeps you a little more style than just being one way uh-huh and then.

Just so stories. Yeah. Just the stories that that have the the whiff of science but seriously like like just to take it on. It's like, let's just assume that this is a plausible hypothesis. Wouldn't you expect that? That obese people would be more attractive across the board if your resource resource starved that is something that really does fluctuate in a reliable way based on how much access if what you have. Then those no because being skinny is like a handicap and that Cigna, that's. I know they have a real story for pretty much any kind of eventuality right hand. It's not that some of these things aren't true. It's just that. So many of them are just post hoc, and you just have and like that, you know, they they say like, well, this this isn't the only reason and obviously their socio cultural factors, even those. Now that I'm thinking of it did you ever see the kind of famous black jeopardy with Tom Hanks? Black jeopardy on Saturday Night Live. Yeah, I'm trying to remember. I don't. Kind of brilliant skit the premise of it was that the Tom Hanks is this blue collar lower class guy, and he goes on black jeopardy and up till they get to the lives matter question. They agree on pretty much everything. Okay. Let's go to bed girls for two hundred. Okay. Half their skinny women can do this for you. What is not a noun? She's a sturdy go. Right. Well, maybe like maybe that that like that's a new hypothesis for you too. I think that it's a more plausible hypothesis that ask size would be correlated with with this. Then then boobs is. I just I mean Bupe size fluctuates through the lifespan. Like once you hit puberty, and it's not, you know, it is interesting that women are the only female, humans are the only are the only mammals that have permanent boobs like all the other animals. Actually, you know, they get them when they're when they have when they're nursing and then disappear. And so I think there's a lot of you could speculate a lot about why I just can't get to this. This is just like, okay. Let's let's read some quotes. When when the two others are talking about the good, scientists limitations one of things. Third. Our focus on breast size comes at the expense of other breast related variables that may have impacted upon participants ratings such as symmetry shape and areola size. Because after all they only showed a woman in a bikini that's conflict right there. Right. It's just the it wasn't manipulated. So we don't know and further further research can I read one of like, I mean, I have so many that it's like that. Of course, this is not to suggest that pose tissue. Resorts are the only thing indicated by larger breast size. If this were the case, then larger breasts is should be no more important than fat stored in any part of a woman's body. Rather breasts is may act as a cue of. Nope. Parody aid sexual maturity infertility. And Furthermore, there may be other more important cus- cus- of fat storage compared to the breasts such as overall body size. It's just the dresses your objection. This may help to explain the small to moderate the small small tomato at effect sizes uncovered in both stutters report. That that right there. Oh my God. We're stumped by the by..
