China Is Limiting Kids Playing Video Games to 3 Hours a Week

"On wednesday. New rules took effect in china that severely restrict the amount of time. Young people can play video games online. Between friday and sunday gamers under eighteen years old will only be allowed to play between eight pm and nine pm the rest of the week. They won't be allowed to play at all. The regulation will also require all users to register using their real names and government issued. Id's it's of beijing's larger efforts to crack down on the growing power of tech firms and insert itself into the private lives of chinese citizens joining us to discuss how these new rules are being received. And what it means for. Gamers and gaming companies alike is the wall street. Journal's deputy china bureau chief josh chen hi josh. How are you so josh. This is the first time. China has restricted gaming for minors in two thousand nineteen limited playtime to ninety minutes on weekdays and it also limited. How much money they could spend on video games. So we're these new. Even more restrictive rules. A surprise was in wasn't a surprise last month. State media outlet published a commentary described video games as quote unquote opium of the mind and that triggered a pretty major sell off shares of gaming companies ten cent which is china's biggest gaming company. I think fell somewhere around. Eleven percent in prior to that china's leader xi jinping has taken aim at video games as a danger to the development of chinese youth. So we've suspected for a while it's something might becoming but what was surprising was just how strict and specific these restrictions were three hours is pretty miserly. Yeah these new restrictive rules. How is china planning on enforcing them in. That's a really good question. They haven't been specific about it and the way that things often work in china's at the communist party will come up with rules and then sort of leave it up to the internet companies themselves to figure out how to enforce

Because other ranges waits till they the adds the contents of the mushroom which is the muskie mo and they drink they drink the urine of other of the rain because putting muskie mo- through a living creature gets to the authentic acid what comes out of the muskie mozota ranges knew that so the red-nosed reindeer basic here a sort of parody or a metaphor for the mushroom but so sounds close and santa claus. Looks like a mushroom. I read next. He's he's the white and the story. The reason santa close to come. Baron chimneys is because in his very northern as you know the very northern latitudes people often get snowed in. They'd often the snowdrifts would often. Complete almost can be submerged at europe's and their offense and people couldn't dig themselves out so others that had access to the mushrooms would would find them. See the smoke coming out so they knew that he was living down there and they drop the mushrooms down the smoke hole so that the people could sustain themselves in their in their code environmental in their tents submerged in the snow by the mushrooms. So that's why santa claus comes under chimney. So yeah i'm very interested.

Bring down what had been a pretty glorious civilization. so it's it's not a happy story in that sense and but it shows you that these kind of vectors of imperialism in trade had been going on for very long time and that drugs have fueled it in many many ways. Well that's right. I when i get introductory tilk drugs policy to students at imperial college. Is this magnificent university. One of the best universities in the world. What do you think funded it foundation and they also they might if they think tool they might say coal rallies and i say no drugs and then they kind of look in horror.

This empire was built on older lewisville selling opium to the chinese setting candidates to the indians. I mean we may indians high cannabis from us even have it grew wild. I mean while there yeah we extraordinary ruthless. And then of course you know. Bring tea and coffee. Well you know a lot of great. American fortunes is a footnote in the book of where i talk about these. These august american fortunes that that that have their name on our libraries and art institutions museums. They were opium dealers and that's been erased from history. I didn't know there was a lot of money. Made an opium and a lot of it was people in the west wanting to keep it out of their country and push it onto another country and we. We were all involved in that trade. But there's another twist in your book about caffeine in and drug wars. Which of course. There's your civil war. would it be fantasy. The war was won by the north because they stuck. They had all the coffee and couldn't get it. Well it's probably too simple but that's true that were we set up a blockade so the south could not get all sorts of goods one of which was caffeine and we understood that and on the north We had the northern in the union army had provision. I think thirty six pounds of coffee per soldier They understood the power of caffeine to keep soldiers happy and an effective and in fact there were generals who would wait until their armies were maximally caffeinated before attacking and they would tell them to fill their thermoses. The coffee not water all right and in the south they were kind of you know He just didn't have that edge but the larger story is that the north in every sense was a caffeinated civilization.

"Of all kinds and he he produces this book. That basically tells you you know here. The legally available seeds and by the way many people listening to this podcast grow opium poppies and may not even know it. A pop of her son is the variety and they're all over english gardens and they're gorgeous. They're one of the most spectacular flowers at every stage. The seed pod as much as the flower itself and i start corresponding jim getting horticultural. Advise asking him. If he had seeds he could share with me. And i'm going on my merry way. And i plant my opium and it's coming up in the garden and then i get word that jim has been arrested by the police in seattle where he lives. An a swat team clothed in black ninja suits bust into his apartment. Throw him up against the wall and arrest him for the crime of manufacturing narcotics and the evidence they have is a box of legally available. Poppy seed heads. You can find any florist shop and are perfectly acceptable. Unless and this is a weird wrinkle in the drug law you have it in your head that this is narcotic scheduled substance that you can turn into opium or heroin or morphine or whatever. And how did they prove that. He had that intent while he he'd written this book and the book was there too in the book. Was the evidence of the intent mens raya. It's called in the law. So i kind of freak out because i'm doing the same thing. I have the same intent. I own the book also. I've written him emails there on his hard drive. And it's sort of in tangles me in the summer of fear and paranoia and this is the summer of nineteen ninety-six trying to figure out. What is the government up to. And am i in jeopardy and i did some investigative journalism and learn that indeed. There was this quiet campaign to stamp out home opium-growing which is much easier than the government would have us believe and they were making some very strategic busts and they were even pulling out the opium poppies and thomas jefferson's garden at monticello. They just wanted to erase opium from the american landscape. And so i write this piece about and i learned a lot about the drug war. I learned that. I am indeed potentially at risk for a serious prison sentence. I think five to twenty years in a dollar fine and not only that in america at that time laws had been passed allowing the police to confiscate your property if it is involved in the commission of drug crime so in other words if a drug is found growing on your land whether you know it or not whether you're convicted of anything or not the property is guilty or the car is guilty and can be forfeited has to be forfeited to the to the police who support their but have been supporting their budgets with this for many many years. So the potential here to completely wrexham's life is real and So anyway i hand in the peace to harper's magazine. it's now balloon to this fifteen thousand word. That took me a year to write and report and i asked them to get it lawyers and they send it to a criminal defense lawyer who drove up to our house in the country in connecticut and said you'd be crazy to publish this.

Some of the habits themes at the very least it will touch on rehabilitation and wellness culture.

We're talking about the original west coast. Insane fucking kalt posing as sober wellness cinnamon and i hope i'm saying that right. Some people say sign on some people say and on.

Noah's drinking habits and intoxication abuse of opium in syria and the century. Bc coca leaves in the andes to chinese cannabis to on and on and on and it was always this mysterious thing to be an addict even up until the nineteen fifties. The general idea of most addiction was in medical communities that it could not be cured if it was treated at all it was by doctors in hospitals and more often than not those suffering from addiction. Eventually were sent to jail until cinnamon though it was not the first rehab or structure around wellness. Synonym did a ton to convince the american public that addicts could be saved. It really started the idea of sponsorship that recovery could happen and that those in recovery could help other people in recovery and while there were good things about sin and on it was founded on the shoulders of charles dietrich and became a cult. Unlike anything else. I had ever seen so it all started with this guy charles dietrich a sales exempt from ohio who moved to so cal after his first divorce after spending almost twenty years as a pneumatic alcoholic he remarried in nineteen fifty six and again at the bequest of his probably very frustrated wife gave a try.

James Ledbetter Wrote That Marxism Journalism Was About Propagandizing

"The 2000 and a book of Marx's articles for the Tribune. Ledbetter explains that quote the basic marks approach to his New York Tribune column was to take an event that was in the news, an election and uprising the second Opium War, the outbreak of the American Civil War. And sift through it. Until he could boil it down to some fundamental questions of politics or economics. And then on those questions, he would make his judgment. In this sense marks journalism, he says, does resemble some of the writing that is published today in journals of opinion. It's not hard to see a direct line between Marx's journalistic writing listen and the kind of tendentious writing on public affairs that characterized much political journalism. Especially in Europe in the 20th century. This marks his approached to journalism as I say. Says modern journalists do today that is, he was unencumbered by commitment to actual news reporting, instead is reporting, which shaped the news around his own opinions and ideology. Ledbetter, who went through all of Marxist Columns and writings. Said after 18 48 marks learned the power of counter revolution. And began to believe that existing systems of government economy could not be overthrown until a relatively informed and organized proletariat could be mobilized to do so. As became clear with every passing year, he writes, and many nations, such organization was decades away if it existed at all. So in other words, Marx understood the power of mass communication and the need to control it and shape it. The frame events and opinions. The purpose was to propaganda, not in the form.

"I pointed out a month or five weeks ago or so that marks profession as long as profession anyway was as a journalist. And it's not a surprise that when you see the the american marxist today in these various news platforms although the night but they deny whatever they want. I don't give a damn what they do not remember. This is part of the case. We're going to make the case. Use our language. Use it properly and identify what we need to identify. But he was a so-called journalist in the modern journalists so called are using marxists tactics and many of them don't even know it. They just play on a social activist on page ninety. Four point out in an interview with james ledbetter the editor of dispatches for the new york tribune a two thousand and a book of marxist articles for the tribune yes he wrote for the new york tribune ledbetter who looked at all the articles explains that the basic marks approach to his new york tribune columnist at an event that was in the news and election and uprising the second opium war the outbreak of the american civil war and sift through it until he could boil it down to some fundamental questions of politics or economics and then on those questions he would make his judgment and their sense marxist journalism does resemble some of the writing that is published today in journals of opinion and it is not hard to see a direct line between marxist journalistic writing and the kind of ten days writing on public affairs that characterized much political journalism. He says especially in europe but this was written some time ago. It's especially now in america in the twentieth century. So he wrote that in two thousand eight so the modern american journalists so called is not what the framers of the constitution had in mind. They're not about freedom of speech. They have taken the approach of karl marx himself. As who's was a journalist for a long time.

I think i probably started my research without realizing. When i was about nine and i i grew up living near the botanic gardens q. And my parents used to take. My brother. May around and joining us. Along with christmas with sweet treats and whatnot but also with stories about the the individual plants. And i think that's probably where my research started. I remember vividly. Actually my my father taking an opium poppy and some slicing the the seed pod and a little drop of latex comey me said gonna have a lick remember so drop of opium latex on my tongue which just made it go ever ever so slightly now for for a moment. I already felt anything i remember. The the sort of the person who's jaw dropped was actually my teacher.

"Two thousand seventeen the governor of illinois implemented a plan to halt the explosive growth of opioid deaths in the state. The plan was to cut those deaths by at least a third by the end of twenty. Twenty twenty twenty was gonna be the turning point for illinois dua l. deeb is a reporter with propublica they're starting to see a decrease and opioid overdose deaths and they were really kind of making progress across the state and they were really hopeful but early last year duo got a tip that the number of opioid related deaths might actually be on the rise in the region so she and her colleague melissa. Sanchez started investigating the analyzed death records from the cook. County medical examiner's office. And what they found was alarming. We found that opioid overdoses surged and cook county and specifically in chicago and that those overdoses were disproportionately killing black residents. I think by the summer we had seen about hundred residents who had died of suspected or confirmed opium overdoses which is about double the number from the year before drug overdose deaths are on the rise all around the country. This was a nationwide problem that we're seeing kind of start to rise before the pandemic and then just continue as a pandemic ravaged our communities absolutely. This is the obvious question for me. Here is whether we have a sense of how much of this increase can be tied to the coronavirus pandemic so cova didn't cause the spike but like everything else that made it worse the financial stress the isolation The desperation all of that seems to be really exacerbating things and then when we talk about isolation with opioid. Use one of the things that they say. Is you know if you're gonna use use with someone else so that then they can administer naloxone the opioid overdose reversal drug.

"Workers did not come sir haphazardly. From around the entire country of china they came ninety percent maybe even more from a relatively small area four counties in southern china near hong kong near macau in the early eighteen hundreds. This area was rife with conflict civil wars between different ethnic groups. The opium wars waged by the british. People could even watch the battles on sea. Between the chinese and british forces from the shoreline and in this war-torn region word began to spread about an opportunity in a particular region of the united states notion of california being go mountain became embedded and became legendary. They heard the glorious stories of wealth from just going over there and picking up gold nuggets in the streams of california soon. Many young men from this region set out for california a lot of them intended to one day. Come home sometimes. They were married. Just before say ritz. Leave because their parents wanted to make sure that they return but once they got to california there were some who were very eager and homesick and wanted to return. They had wise or sweethearts back in china and they wanted to be with them or with their parents. Others were much not so philly hill. And i so conventional but liked the money that they got in the united states the latitude or freedom. Young men van -joyed in the wild west there is lots of opium there is prostitution and there was work to be had including prospecting for gold. Which though ching notes it's draped in romanticism. Now was difficult dangerous. Work it involved moving earth using explosives and when the gold rush was winding down. Many chinese immigrants use that experience to find other work opportunities irrigation systems road systems acquiesced systems said a lot of infrastructure work and when it comes to infrastructure work there was no bigger project at the time than the transcontinental railroad.

I am so excited to be back with j. l. d. and each one of you and i believe that the hardest part of growing sicker business. You love is allowing it to be easy. Doesn't have to be hard but we were taught that it does right. We're taught to be really good employees and so what our brains to try to keep us safe when we start dreaming about getting not first traction in our businesses. That's what makes it hard not the fact that you're not capable. I mean. sometimes. I ask myself like what is the path of least resistance here. Why am i making this difficult for myself. Like what feels light. Not heavy. And i'll tell you fire nation. I am keeping all the things they feel light and feel easier in my world right now and i'm releasing the things that feel heavy feel hard because it doesn't have be difficult and we're talking about a pretty cool topic how to grow a six figure business six months working ten hours a week and i just want to talk about the realistic -ness of making six figures working ten hours a week. Break that down for us christine. Yes this is all about simplifying like you said what feels light right. You only need two things in order to have the foundation of a six figure business like you need a clear niche and you need an aligned. High ticket offer providing some kind of service whether as a coach as a consultant as a service provider freelancer marketer. Virtual assistant opium social media manager. One of those things. That's all that you need in order to be able to start going out and offering it you need to things. Fire nation a clear niche and that clear niche aligned with a high ticket offer of some former service. That christine was talking about right there. And what's really powerful that for me. Is i see a lot of people today. Saying john like man. I want to launch podcasts. Like interview entrepreneurs of that and listen entrepreneurs on fire fails if i launch it in twenty twenty with my same skills that i had in two thousand twelve i. I won in two thousand twelve because it was a niche. It was void. I fill ditz. And that's why that one got traction. So what is a specific niche. The can be clear and defined for you. Fire nation that. How can you weave in an aligned like that word aligned. High ticket offer of a service that makes sense because right now man. I'm c. n. Christina kinda wants you to chime in on this because i'm seeing a lot of people doing things the wrong way which is like they're working so hard for these like really low ticket offers and just you know having to get like a hundred thousand sometimes even more than that of the sales of these low ticket offers for it even to add up to any kind of meaningful money and like every sale is tough like it a lot times. I found that a low ticket sale because sometimes even be harder than hydrogen sale. And we gotta get into that kind of specifics too. But what do you think about this. I completely agree. I have like a what not to do right. And it is literally what you just said. Don't write a book or start a podcast. I don't download every freebie and try to piece together. A business plan from them. Don't create a bunch of low priced products and start offering them all and also like. Don't tell yourself you don't have enough time because it's almost never time problem. It's a clarity problem.

Can You Be Addicted to Love?

"Nicotine. Chocolate alcohol opioids work gambling. Sex food you might as well face it. Life is basically a gauntlet of substances and behaviors. That humans can become obsessed with and dependent on. But what about love not just sex but the deep interpersonal attachment we call love can be addictive. The notion of obsessive all consuming and even addictive love goes back literally thousands of years the ancient greek poet. Sappho wrote about watching her lover mary. Someone else and she describes being seized trembling drenched in cold sweat and feeling nearly dead she might as well be describing opium withdrawals or singing aversive addicted to love romantic. Love does have a lot of external features in common with drug addiction initial feelings of bliss and euphoria and obsessive fixated behavior often leading to poor potentially life ruining decisions. Two thousand ten paper from the new york academy of sciences points out that common criteria for diagnosing dependence include life interference tolerance withdrawal and repeated attempts to quit. Sound anything. like your relationship with your ex if so you're certainly not alone. But is there any more measurable basis for thinking. Love can be considered an addiction in the brain. Actually yes. let's talk brain imaging one way. That addiction hijacks the human brain is by taking advantage of a million reward and motivation systems. Like the mess olympic dopamine system which includes the ventral tag mental area and the nucleus accumbens. This is part of the nervous system that gives us internal rewards when we do something with an evolutionary benefits like eating or having sex essentially how the brain tells itself. Hey what you just did do that again. And again and again whether it's eating nutritious meal or unfortunately snorting cocaine back in two thousand five. A study in the journal of neurophysiologist used fm. Are i look at the brains of test subjects. Who self reported that they were intensely in love with someone else. When these lovebirds were showing pictures of the people. They adored there was activation in sections at that. Same mammalian reward and motivation system for example the right ventral mental area. But that's not all a follow up study in two thousand ten looked at what happened to the brains of men and women who had been rejected but reported that they were still deeply in love. It wasn't pretty when heartbroken. Lovers were forced to look at pictures of their exes. There was elevated activity in our old friends. The ventral take mental area and the nucleus accumbens researchers pointed out that the rejected lovers showed several neural correlates in common with the brain activity of cocaine addicts craving their drug so at the level of brain chemistry. Romantic love can be kind of like substance addiction but there are reasons why you might not want to refer to your latest crush as a full on addiction just yet. For example the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders does not officially recognize love addiction and while cravings for love can be devastating when their unrequited or self destructive they can also be deeply fulfilling in a way that no drug habit ever could be.

Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha

"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone.

You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet.

Decriminalizing The War On Drugs

"In the summer of nineteen seventy one president richard. Nixon declared a so-called. You're on drugs. But i consider this problem so urgent. I also found that it was scattered so much throughout the government with so much conflict without coordination that it had to be brought into the white house so that we have not only the responsibility but the authorities to see that we wages defensive effectively an coordinated way the goal was to curb the use of illicit substances by levying increased. Police presence classifying a number of drugs at the federal level and by making longer prison sentences. Mandatory for the use and distribution of narcotics nearing the fiftieth anniversary of that decision. The war on drugs is still very much alive. Millions of people have been incarcerated from windows policing and the advent of stop and frisk to no knock warrants and the militarization of local police departments. All of this born from the so called war on drugs and all have been used primarily target communities of color advocates for reform have long that punitive policies have not only failed to reduce the flow of drugs across the country but also strengthen illicit drug markets creating risky and unhealthy conditions for people who choose to use drugs. Meanwhile more than seventy thousand people died last year alone as a result of drug. Overdoses is clearly failing in the war on drugs and advocates. Say it's because we've gone about it completely. The wrong way by focusing on the criminal element of drug use instead of seeing it through the lens of healthcare access and social justice to talk about this issue. We're joined by muddied sep it is. Who's the director of the national affairs at the drug policy alliance in washington d. c. leads the organization's federal work to end the war on drugs. Mighty snap is welcome to letting you. usa inc you. I'm so excited to be here with you today. So recently a lot has been happening with drug decriminalization but before we get into that. Let's take a few steps back and you know. Set the picture for how we got to this place and this is a place where for example someone could be caught in possession of a small amount of marijuana and they could be sentenced to spend the rest of their life in prison in some parts of the country. Still yes sadly. That's the case. Drug enforcement continues to be a driver of mass incarceration. In fact one person is arrested every twenty three seconds for simple drug possession so it continues to be a a big feeder into not just the criminal justice system but you have to think of all of the collateral consequences for instance a conviction can make it harder for you to put your life back on track to go to school to obtain even get a job in the first place to keep a roof over your head to feed your family so it continues to be something. That is a huge detriment. In a lot of people's lives many drugs that are illegal today such as marijuana opium coca psychedelics if unused for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes but we also know that this country has a long history of pech waiting racialized drug war. I think something that a lot of people might not know is that the first anti-drug laws in the united states were actually built specifically to criminalize people of color. Starting with the eighteen seventies we saw laws targeting chinese immigrants in california. This is the first time we saw anti opium laws pop around. Are you saying that basically opium was around and used once you had the arrival of men and women from china who were actually working on the railroad that that's when it becomes a problem. Yeah so what. We started to see around. the eighteen. Hundreds was that anti drug laws started to pop up. Civically created to target certain communities of color and the eighteen seventies saw the rise of the first anti-drug laws in those drugs were anti opium laws that were targeted at chinese immigrants. Soon after that in the nineteen hundreds in the south we saw that mccain became illegal in that was related target african american men Who were using the substance and then of course in the nineteen thirties. That mexican mexican americans were criminalised for marijuana use. Of course you know when we talk about. Marijuana can't ignore the fact that marijuana itself was a term that was developed to criminalise mexican americans and mexicans who were who were using the plant and this happened with the first individual who was responsible for drug enforcement in the us but these were all intentional decisions by the government to criminalise communities of color to really dejected. People who were not wanted in the society and you know unfortunately those policy decisions still play out today because drug use continues to be something that there is a lot of hysteria around and people of color continued to be disproportionately enforced for drug use and drug activity even though all the data tells us that black and brown individuals use drugs at similar rates and sometimes even lower rates than white individuals.

Many Tigray refugees entering Sudan with nothing but their clothes: UNHCR

"Nearly sixty thousand people. From ethiopia's volatile tigray region have now crossed the border to remote southeastern sudan optimal than two months of fighting many with just the clothes on their backs. The emergency has created a massive protection challenge for the un refugee agency in sudan. Unhcr which is doing everything. It can't provide what they need as spokesperson. Xl bishop tells us news is daniel johnson. I've just been on a mission to the east. Where i have looked at the response in relation to the refugee influx from ideo. Peel right. so we're going to talk about the refugee influx which comes after two and a half months of fighting water. The numbers now that you're seeing seeking shelter over the border of sudan from ethiopia's northern region of tigray so we have about fifty eight thousand at europeans. Which are actually entered into saddam at the moment the influx is between two to five hundred people daily coming across the border. They're coming in through to border areas Diet and lewke that number coming over two to five hundred a day. That's a lot less than it was but you suggesting that perhaps people are just too far away from the border to get to safety across the border now yes the first influx which resources came from the villages on the western side of tigray at the moment the people which we are seeing of people who have walked for some time what we see is that maybe we have an indication that the western side of being emptied and the people seeking shelter not come from further away. What are they telling you what are their needs. So i mean. Most of the people have Actually entered sudan without anything so they come with their clothes but many many few coming with no possessions at what we hear is that many come without documentation which is also something which we are trying to address the first influx came in relation to direct fighting the influx which we have now. The people are telling us that it's more in relation to the fact that they don't feel safe in tigray not so much because of the fighting because they are from the gray area. So do you have an idea. About what the level of fighting is in tigray today. What is your access you know we are working on the sudan side and our office in addis. Ababa is actually trying to gain access now. What we are doing is trying to relocate them. From the border areas further inland. We have two camps at the moment which are some distance from the border where border conflict should not be a problem. Okay but i'm just concerned that there's no access to hundreds of thousands potentially of people on the other side of the border of sudan with. He need essential food. Water and other services reported rising malnutrition from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and they cited bureaucratic obstacles in in getting access to people who need it so. What's the latest you have on tensely getting help to these people in need as we are sitting here on the sudan side we are focusing on the influx which has come across the border from at the opium and we also have offices in the opium which are dealing with the people who have moved inside the tigray area but also inside at your more at large. So let's talk about two and a half months into this conflict. In the northern region of tigrayan ethiopia. You're trying to relocate tens of thousands potentially of refugees because you've got camps further inland in sudan. Could you may be explain what the difficulties are first of all. It's always a challenge to actually find. Land land something which is owned here by individuals but also by government and we have been working together with the government of sudan. We go a piece of land which is old campsite which is called ambre kuba what we have placed about twenty thousand refugees at the moment here. We have within. I would say short span in able to at least all stem in attempts but also ensure water health and food the second site which we have because kuba has been saturated is tenable. it's further way than kouba and it takes about twelve to fourteen sometimes. Sixteen hours to actually have the buses leaving the border area arriving at the campsite. Which therefore makes it arrivals in the middle of the night now. The campsite is located in a very remote area where we don't have any electricity and we are concerned that actually offloading these amounts of people in the middle of the night with no lights is something of a concern to us. We are trying to do this now. In such a way that we have larger area rub whole set up where we host people until we have the song light out again and then we give them the tents which have been set up for them. Sure and final. Question to you mr bishop. We are two and a half months into this conflict refugees telling you that. They are hopeful. Being able to return amid this fighting between two grants and the marines in the northern region of ethiopia. Refugees are still hopeful. But i think that what we see Is that people are here for longer term and why we have had some people expressing hopes to return they would like to return to the tigray. Which was there some three months ago not to the new situation which stay. I've heard the bald.

How to Choose a Safe Seat for Your Baby to Eat with High Chair Designer Kirsti Vandraas

"Today. We're talking about the seat in which your baby learns how to eat. That's right highchairs. And when it comes to hide your design there is no one more well known for icon design in this space than peter obstacle of norway. Peter offset designed the trip trap highchair in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. When he looked around for a chair that allowed his son to sit in a natural way at the grownups table and because nonesuch chair existed he designed what is now known as the iconic trip chair basically so he could include his son in as he says life round the table. So many of you may have this chair that trip trap or recognize it. It's sometimes like to a ladder so the trip trap is a wooden chair with an adjustable seat and adjustable footplate and grows with your child so the company that peter designed it for which is called. Shutt- is headquartered in norway. And they've actually sold more than twelve million trip trap as so it is one of the. Most globally recognized chairs. Personally i love this chair. I have in us seven of the trip traps around the table for my seven children. They've really been fabulous investment wonderful. Especially if you have a smaller space where you're feeding your baby or babies or if you're feeding multiples it's wonderful because it has a much smaller footprints like not one of those highchairs. It's gonna take up your kitchen. So while peter fix trip trap was designed and launched in one thousand nine hundred ninety two when his son was little forty years later in twenty thirteen obstacle launched. Another chair called the nomi and this was really his realization of his vision for designing the next generation highchair one. That's dedicated to his grandchildren. So peter obstacles now eighty one at the time of this recording. He continues to work every day. And cures deep vandross is a physiotherapist and an ergonomic who works very closely with peter. In fact she's worked with peter object for the last thirteen years. So kirsty is going to be on the podcast today. Sharing peter's vision and philosophy about the chairs that he originally designed for his child and his grandchildren. Now that millions of families of used around the world. So if you have a trip trap or a nomi- or if you're in the market for a highchair that will continue to serve your family and your child long after these initial stages of starting solids. I think you're really going to enjoy this interview. Because the scandinavian design principles and the philosophies held by peter and explained today by st are so very different from what we may have in mind when we go to select a seat for our baby to learn how to eat so today on the podcast. Kirstin i are going to be talking about the difference in american and european safety standards. Why norwegian families do not actually strap their babies of their toddlers into the degree or the extent that americans may think is necessary. This is going to be very eye opening for a lot of you certainly was for me as kind of a control freak. Mom we'll be chatting about why the trip trap and the nomi were designed with the very obvious absence of trey and what that means. and then. How the adjustable foot rest is probably the most important safety and design component missing from most highchairs today. So i hope you enjoy this interview with cure. Steve andros from the peter obsta company. Kirsty thank you so much for joining us. I am so excited to have the opportunity to interview you. It's catching get now. If you can. Would you tell us a little bit about your background. And how you know the whole life story maybe. How did you get into product design. And then how did you come to. Work with. Peter ops vic. Oh it's a long story. I am a physiotherapist anais. I started working in our major hospital here in in ostler with people with back and neck problems you know. People came into the hospital more or less paralyzed with pain and never thought they would be able to come up and walk again and with a treatment lots of guidance we build them up again and they went home and they were fine and had a lotta for knowledge with how to behave to avoid back and neck problems then. I saw that it was difficult for them. To use to knowledge they had when they went back to back. So i sold our institution equivalent to osha would been interesting place to work to see if i was able to get other people to create positive working environments where you could work but still keep your health so i spent ten years in our show in charge of ergonomics and then i started sinking. What about getting into detail. The totality because their via opium much more than chair tables but share and tables reports on the totality and. I wanted to see if we could make chairs in such way that you didn't talk to have problems with your body after sitting. Who working so. I started working ritual. Company that developed sitting solution for the working person unlock was contested. Interesting period thomas there for six teen years and then i met peter ops week. One of a number of designers. We used not process another lost twelve years. We're solely read. Peter and peter's sir designs promoting them talking about taking part in the product development. So that was a long story. But you know the background and How i ended up here. And you're still actively working with peter. Is that correct. Yes yes wonderful. Can you tell us a little bit about the history of the design of the trip trap and then the nomi highchairs and especially with regard to promoting freedom and fellowship. The trick drop chair was developed in the beginning of the seventies piotre just had his son wounding sixty nine will sitting on an ordinary highchair s. You know the high chair has been around for for generations. you know egypt. They use highchair. the hunt. Chance in their mini is an pizza hut his son sitting in hijab but then when he reached a year and a half you know he didn't really need to sit with the sort of support all around his waist. He was looking for other chairs that he could place his son around the table together with the rest of the company that did not exist so he had to make his own amber trip chapels but one then in nineteen seventy two and i think he did something very clever back then because he did not make it to fit into what you call the design of the seventies he had the distinct bischel feature in the seventies and the result is that the chair still look quite Modern had he designed it giving it the visual design of what the kitchen look like. Back in nineteen seventy two. It would have been outdated very old looking chair today.

"The last episode i covered the beginning of the eto period it was known for its 'isolation strict societal classes and hierarchy and order but it started to see unravel beginning the second half of the era and by eighteen hundred internal issues with the merchant class rising an economic stature above the samurai and all the other classes were casting doubts about the practicality in future of the class hierarchy in japan also outside nations were beginning to by the early nineteenth century seek out any gauge japan regarding diplomatic relations and trade this would endanger. It's latest policy in this episode. I'll continue with the period a continuation of those same internal and external pressures issues. It will culminate in the arrival of commodore perry and the eventual fall of the tokugawa shogunate. And i will provide an analysis of these events and compare these events with what was going on in china during the same period internally in japan the issues of samurai impoverishment continued lower lower level samurais increasingly became frustrated that high-ranking government positions went to privileged families with no chance of advancement compounding this were bad crop harvests in the eighteen thirties resulting in famine disease and death japanese officials failed to provide relief leading to some peasant protests and riots outside pressures were also continuing to mount in eighteen forty four king william the second of the netherlands sent a letter to the show gun urging japan to end its isolation policy or it would be ended by force from foreign countries as already stated. The japanese. Were aware of the humiliation of the. The chinese suffered at the hands of the english in the first opium war. Japan had almost immediately after that began. Its modernisation western. Books were translated into japanese. The japanese began studying western military strategies. Those that could afford it sent their sons to foreign schools. Japanese envoys visited foreign countries japan with slowly preparing for the eventual encounter with these western powers about the same time. The americans were becoming more concerned that if they did not act quickly. Other nations particularly european nations would gain a foothold in japan. The us head already been beaten to the punch so to speak by the europeans. In the exploitation of china plus the americans wanted a refuge in japan for its steamships to recall on their way to china. There were also many reports and concerns over the japanese treatment of shipwrecked shipwrecked american sailors and their desire to do something about that. The us got to the point where it wanted to send to japan. An expedition seeking relations and to avoid being left out of the asia pacific region and development and discussion.

The Khun Sa Files

"At the end of January nineteen, eighty to the forty eight year old coon saw lost almost everything. In a matter of days, the empire he'd spent years building had fallen since his escape from house arrest in nineteen, seventy, six Kuhn saw had risen to become one of the most powerful and infamous drug lords in the world from his base in northern Thailand. He trafficked opium out of Burma refined it into heroin and sold it to organized crime outfits across. Southeast. Asia approximately seventy five percent of the world's heroin was coming out of the region. Much of it. Thanks to Kuhn saw, and he was able to do it all with the help of the Thai government and Sean State Freedom Fighters. But in the early nineteen eighties, his luck ran out at the behest of the United States his type benefactors turned on him. And on January Twenty First Nineteen eighty-two the time military descended upon his headquarters in the town of Bond Hint Tech faced with complete annihilation. GHUNSA had no choice but to flee back to Burma taking the remains of his private army with him. They left behind fifteen tons of weaponry and millions of dollars worth of heroin processing equipment as bad as these hits were coon son knew that far more damaging was the loss of the Thai government's support without their protection coon saw was significantly weaker and everyone knew it January twenty first proved that his militia was no match for a real military. Embarrassed and betrayed ghunsa swore he wouldn't let himself be beaten. So easily he was still the self proclaimed King of the Golden Triangle and a world renowned freedom fighter. He would just have to figure out how to rebuild his operation in Burma. The problem with going back to Burma was that he was essentially a fugitive there. But looking at the political landscape, he decided to take a gamble. The Burmese military dictatorship was embroiled in ongoing battles with the Communist Party of Burma and a number of regional separatist groups. Despite his relatively high profile. Kuhn, saw wouldn't be the government's first priority a more difficult problem for him would be rebuilding his army.

They appreciated that he was keeping the Burmese side of the border under control by taking over all the warring groups and their financial stakes in the heroine industry also meant they wanted to get back on the drug lords good side.

In return for his forgiveness though he required that the Thai government's recognize him as the sole figurehead of the Sean State Independence Movement?

However, in the years, he'd been in Thailand other Sean separatist groups with stronger ideological roots had expanded their bases in Burma.

"That act of lowering the price of opium had devastating consequences in China. The Americans involvement. In the opium trade into China this time. Mainly came. The opium mainly came from Turkey. The French also joined the opium bonanza to. And there were many Chinese local Chinese that exploded the opium trade to their own personal advantage, no surprise. Doggone finally had enough. At this point that I story. Enters a man by the name of. Your shoe. Dog WanNa pointed him. To become essentially an opium commissioner. and His job was simple. You radical opium from China.

That may have an ultra. Put China on a path of no return. He rested seventeen hundred opium dealers and Kaffa skated from the English dealers. And destroyed over twenty thousand chests of opium that were stored at Canton. The English were expectedly outraged and loud enlarged their resentment to the emperor of this action. There was some attempt by the Chinese, some conciliatory effort by the Chinese to placate English. But the English rejected all that. And instead set. It's worships and troops to China. Later that same year in an unrelated event. In an event called the in Mandarin Joel or an English Kowloon incident several drunken. Several drunken Western say soldiers killed a Chinese villager. Despite repeated requests from Lean Lindner shoe. The English refused to turn over the assailants to the Chinese to face Chinese justice.

"But the larger bigger problem I was referencing a moment ago in the state of China was its governance and it steaming among nations at that time. The period of this history starting about. Is Known as the era of unequal treaties. This is the big picture. This era of unequal treaties pretty much lasted until the end of the chain dynasty. I strongly believe some knowledge of this broad view. That I, just expressed. Is really important to better understand. What is coming for China. And to set it up a little bit I want to rehash what I generally covered in earlier episodes, I'll keep it brief. Foreign traders primarily English had been illegally exporting opium into China mainly from India to China since the eighteenth century. I've also discussed in the run-up to this area that the English wanted to find a way to balance its trade deficit with China. By eighteen, twenty, however, opium imports into China dramatically group. And the numbers are staggering. From eighteen ten to eighteen thirty eight opium imports into China went from forty five hundred chest, remember chest is about one hundred and forty pounds to forty thousand chess. That's right, four thousand five hundred chest to forty thousand chests in a period of. Twenty eight years. By eighteen twenty largely as a result of the opium. Sales. The balance of silver reversed in England's favour. Tao Guang grew quite alarmed over this. And the millions of opium addicts in China. And the flow of silver. Leaving China. Of course, the number of addicts in China at this time can never be accurately calculated. Conservative estimates however place addiction at ten percent of the adult population. That still would have been enormous. Was Some discussion early in Dow Guan's rain to legalise opium. The argument was that the more serious issue for China was the loss of silver. Legalizing opium would allow the chain government to text the opium trade. In any event, the outflow of silver from China increased about two million ounces. Earn early eighteen, twenty, two over nine million ounces. Just ten years later. By eighteen, thirty, six eighteen hundred tons of opium came into China every year, and this increased every day. Opium trade became so popular that the English east India Company began to hire. English and American traders to smuggle. Opium into China. By the mid eighteen thirty s the English. East India Company had lost its opium monopoly. And in response, it lowered its price of opium..

"Evidence that he might have been an opium addict. Whatever it was, this left him toothless and hollow-cheeked. Dow Guan's rain began the initial onslaught into China by Western imperialism and foreign invasions. Like his father. dogwoods rain was constantly plagued by events. He could not control. Not surprisingly. That Dow Jones Reign was marked by external disaster. An internal rebellion. Early in his reign, he had to deal with an uprising in the Turkistan, Xinjiang Province area. It is well known this area at the periphery of the West. Northwest border of China has always been had always been a challenge. And a recurring one at that. Early in the uprising, the small Chinese garrison there were massacred. Dao Guang was forced. Dispatch a large to that area. The twenty thousand men plus Army. Only had limited success however and was unable to fully quell the uprising. There would be continual fighting in this area for another twenty years. The Chain Permanently lost several cities resulting from this uprising in the Xinjiang province. This finally resulted in a treaty between the chain dynasty and the Kolkata Con. Now putting this in perspective, the loss of these areas may not necessarily have been a big loss to the Ching Dynasty. That is because there is an argument that these areas were always difficult to hold onto. And maybe a bit unrealistic to try to hold onto those. That area. They were far away and the Chinese. Could only keep it. If it provided with the necessary, military, societal and political support. With the treaty. The Ching Dynasty was freed from any further obligation duty to that area. Nonetheless this particular military venture cost the chain dynasty and China. Ten million, ounces of silver. Dog One also had to suppress rebellions in Taiwan in the Hunan Province. and. The Chinese old friends, the meow people were back making noise in eighteen, thirty, two in the. Excuse me in the three southwest provinces like they did before. There was also severe damage that had to be addressed with the dikes along the Yellow River. This was causing recurring flooding and.
