Fresh update on "philippine" discussed on Vickie Allen and Levon Putney

"Learned about in history books, but there are some who still remember. They can see the Japanese kamikaze ease. The fires have burned on American ships, and they still feel a searching pride and serving their country. 95 year old Dominic Marais of Manhattan, remembers the vivid details. We were with the Intrepid when it got hit by a kamikaze kamikaze missed our ship on for them. The triple Sure that that day and I don't think travel was going down. So many kids lost their lives on that. Can you describe what it looked like when those kamikazes here? Well, the just Fire and smoke billows of smoke. Whenever they hit on You. Just you just can't explain it. It's just see a ship when it gets hit. Fact. If you shoot somebody movies, ships that get head thing they explode. They burn. It's terrible and I was fortunate enough to get a few medals. I'm not trying to brag, but I did get a few medals of Philippine 32 medals on a couple of the metals that we were that they gave us a servant in the Pacific. But I mean in your mind when you saw the intrepid get hit, you thought it was done. Definitely. I definitely said it's going down. It's going to go down. Have one kamikaze. Mr. Hardship for them hit the intrepid. That's my fact. After the war I invented trapping right Since I live in this neighbourhood. I wouldn't hunt in river and I should have visited the Intrepid. What was it like to go back to the Intrepid as a museum, but it was hearing it was hearing to see To see that day when I was a youngster alone planes crashing into the intrepid and then coming back here to see it as a museum. Something unbelievable. The heroism and humility of.

The Philippines Becomes Coronavirus Hot Spot In Southeast Asia

"Philippines has over taken in Tunisia as Southeast Asia's Corona virus hot spot even though Indonesia has twice as many people. The Philippines now has more than 136,000 confirmed cases of covert 19 and critics say no coherent strategy for defeating the virus, Michael Sullivan reports. Like other countries in the region, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam, For example, the Philippines recorded its first covert case back in January. Those neighbors acted swiftly. They started locking down when they had a few 100 cases and the timeliness of the response was key to the success of Vietnam, Korea and Taiwan University of the Philippines. Covert researcher Ranjeet Rai. They decided to do something significant when they only had relatively few cases, and they were successful with racing and with the isolation very different from the Philippines, where we already had a case in January, and we decided not to do anything about it until March, and it wasn't just the Philippines lock down. That was late health workers say, Dr Tony Luchon. Is a former advisor to the government's covert task force. They started Lee with the AH building up of the health system capacities in terms of testing isolation. And quantum tracing. We wasted so much time about two months instead of trying to build up our infrastructure's adequate testing and contact tracing are still a huge problem, but the lock down that went into effect in March 1 of the longest and most severe in Southeast Asia. Did help reduce the number of new cases until it was lifted in June, when cases started to skyrocket. Over the weekend, the country's medical front liners issued an urgent virtual plea to President Rodrigo did to reimpose the lock down to allow them to regroup. Medical Association president Dr Jose Santiago Jr. Our health care system has bean overlong our head workers are burned out would seemingly endless number of patients trooping to our hospitals for emergency care and ambition. We're waging a losing battle against carbon 19 President Duterte. His initial response was less than empathetic, accusing the health workers of inciting a revolution against his government. You will give me the free ticket. The state's a counterrevolution. How I wish you would do it. The next day, he retreated and ordered a new 15 day locked down. But it's not a stringent is the first public transportation has been stopped. But businesses and retail outlets Khun operated half capacity in an effort to both halt the spread of the virus and allow some economic activity in the country that's now slipped into recession. But critics say this 15 day locked down light won't stop the spread of the virus. If it goes only 15 days, it will start increasing again. And the problem is that our health Care is now a full capacity. We have two cities in Metro Manila, which are at 100% occupancy. So that's a real problem. That's University of the Philippines. Professor Ghetto divvied who's been modelling the spread of the virus, along with his colleague, grungy dry. If we don't manage this this month, we don't take the opportunity to extend the music. You That small window opening lives and livelihoods would suffer at the disruption will become greater and my sense if we prematurely opened, it could be catastrophic for us. But he acknowledges extending the log down will be a tough sell for both the politically powerful business community and the everyday Filipino who's going to suffer because of these extended lockdowns.

Online Memorial Honors Filipino Health Care Workers Who Have Died Of COVID-19

"Jolene Lovitt has lost friends and family to cope in 19 She and other volunteers have been keeping track of Filipino healthcare workers who died from the disease worldwide. Their website is called Communion, which means shelter or refuge. It's an online memorial with pictures and stories of those who've been lost. Jolene livid joins us now from Los Angeles. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. So why don't you just start by telling me why created this online memorial? So the first week of stay at home orders? I lost my aunt who was a registered nurse. Her name is Rosary. Castro Olonga. And she passed away without being named. You know, for weeks. Two weeks later, I lost another aunts. They worked with my mother for 30 years in the I C u as registered nurses. So your mother is also a registered nurse. Yes, And as the days went on, we noticed that a lot of the health care workers unless there were independent journalists covering their family's stories. We were unable to identify them. And so there were a group of us. We got together and we started. Basically documenting everything confined. You talked about how many people with Philippine ancestries were dying on the front lines as health care workers. Are they over represented in the medical industry. Absolutely. Here in California. One in five registered nurses is of the looking ancestry in New York. So now we're talking about two hot spots of the pandemic, 34.4% of all Filipinos are actually in the healthcare industry. New York So we're highly over represented in the healthcare industry because of historic exclusion, except for health care professionals, for example, and educators that were allowed to migrate here, and that's why a lot of people choose this career path. That's correct. I know that in my family, there will be entire households that will save up tuition for one person to go through nursing school so that she can migrate abroad and support being rest of the entire family that's still back home in the Philippines. A main feature of the digital memorial are the numbers that you've collected. Can you tell us about the data you found United States has more than doubled the deaths of Philippine healthcare workers, then the Philippines itself. Wow, that's quite shocking. It is it is on the second highest number of deaths of health care professionals. Of Philippine ancestry is actually the United Kingdom again beating out the Philippines outside of this site. Are there really hard, fast numbers of deaths of Filipino healthcare workers, Filipinos in general and how they're impacted by this disease? There is a loose network of Filipino and Filipino American journalists that are attempting Tio collect numbers of all Filipinos that have fallen to probe it in the U. S on DH. In our research. We found a similar effort in the United Kingdom. But the Philippine government itself is not collecting those numbers where Filipino migrants reside. So, for example, the consulate here in the United States their number, it's missing like half of the names that we've been able to collect. Who knows how many stories you still haven't heard every single day. We're still combing the news. We're still checking to see if more testimony have been submitted by by loved ones. That was Julian livid founder of the website, Kong London, which tracks deaths of Filipino healthcare

How I Built Resilience: Taha Bawa of Goodwall

"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during such a disruptive time and today we're GonNa hear from Ta the CO founder of Good Wall Good Wall is a social network that connects high school and college graduates with jobs and scholarships. Today Good Wall has raised over sixteen million dollars with more than a million users on the platform I. Spoke with Taha, from his company headquarters in Switzerland where he gave me a rundown of goodwill's mission for people who've never heard of goodwill just tell us how how does it work? It's essentially a mobile platform that's designed for the next generation. We started off with high school students helping them build up their first profile showcase themselves in a way that I'm accentuates their extracurricular activities in particular, connect them to opportunities mostly scholarships in colleges and all. This happens within a positive and supportive community. Over time, we've grown with our members into the college and young professional space. Our whole goal is to level the playing field, maximize the potential of as many people as possible. So it's been compared to linked in is that a fair comparison I? Think there are similarities however, we're really focused on on our part, which is this next generation starting as early as sixty and guiding them through almost Sherpa in. Them through the future of earning learning and those opportunities. There are various features that we have that they don't, and we're really focus from a user experience perspective, and then from a community perspective, it's it's very different posts don't work here. You wouldn't find students talking about being on the chess team being on the robotics team being on etc etc on goodwill mean if you are, let's say eighteen years old and you're interested in applying to college. What does it look like you go to? While you create a profile for yourself and and then what you're going to goodwill, you help yourself our initial early adopters were mostly international school students who maybe didn't have as much guidance as others or since the US who maybe didn't have as much guidance from their parents from college counselors it come on. Here's he would other people are doing they'd be matched with colleges and universities and. Also. With scholarships based on their data on their profiles and then they'd be able to connect with like minded youth. So we had this girl based out of Jordan who was really into robotics science and unfortunately no one really around her who had that those similar interests and she was able to find others like her in the US connected Internet. NASA did incredible things afterwards actually many of our students have gone bound exclusive opportunities at. Like Oxford and others that we've partnered with an. Super fulfilling perspective. Yeah. It's really caused US checking it out last night and it's it's a little bit like if you didn't have a mentor or a guidance counselor like here you go. Yeah definitely I think a lot of early adopters were privileged in the sense that they had a lot of ambition and maybe they went to good schools. But over time we've especially with last year we've really. Put a lot of effort and a lot of energy towards helping youth who are maybe a little under privileged that privilege is actually not necessarily one hundred percent linked to financial situation but it can be for example, we're doing now with UNICEF death and other organizations in Africa for example, is running programs they are and were really helping you bring out their ideas, build up their confidence show who they. are in connect opportunities and it's been really really fulfilling and we expect to do more underrepresented communities in the US. For example, we're doing more and more there. That's where the biggest room impact is. At the end of the day, we are a social enterprise and it's very fulfilling to help youth who go to elite schools and connect them to lead universities and colleges, but it's even more fulfilling. Even more important for us to step in where the impact Delta's the biggest for, for example, youth in Africa who insert African countries that just don't have any exposure don't have opportunity. Don't have the guidance but do have access to a phone and can has result go through. So we're really trying to do more there in particular and are you started this company in two thousand fourteen with your brother? Where did the idea come from? So my it was my brothers idea both of us were born in Switzerland we lived in Iran the US came back to Switzerland. Our parents used to work in the humanitarian sector. My father worked for or Serb refugees around thirty years, and we experienced a lot growing up. We was like quite a contradiction going skiing on the weekend in in a very affluent privileged, no bubble in Switzerland whereas at the same time, we'd go in summer vacation and give candy out to refugee kids who are age your ten eleven and that that really did shake US quite a bit in throughout our upbringing we realized that we are. We are I'm here not because I'm smart but because I was lucky osborne that could have been born two doors down in that, my life would have been very different and I'm confident because of the experiences I had rather than because I'm innately able to do so and that's really what pushed us to say we were lucky in this sense what would happen if we were able to give those opportunities in terms of particularly experiences. So education is one thing traditional education is one thing but particularly experiences to millions of youth around the world what would happen how can we change things and that's where we thought it has to be mobile first it has. To be a digital solution and it has to be able to tackle millions and we wanted to go a step further. We said it's good to maximize one's potential but hopefully, we can do that in a win. We're very idealistic in that sense in a way that it maximizes or improved society as well or impacts society positively, which is our mission statement that if we have enough people that are exposed to not only improving themselves but as so often it's a form of education knowing what's out there if I hadn't gone to refugee camps or if I didn't have the background where my parents are Richard from Sri Lanka, would I really be so inclined to How this positive impact who knows I did have that chance I view that as an opportunity to give those opportunities in showcase through volunteering through being aware through connecting to people from different backgrounds. Hopefully, we can move the world forward I. Think it's needed now more than ever, right? Yeah. For Sure Tyler, the business for a second I think you've got around fifty employees the world you've got offices in Switzerland, the US Germany Serbia the Philippines mean you're growing you've got presumably some cash runway but these are tough economic times. I mean Lincoln just laid off a thousand people, their record numbers of people in the US for unemployment. So first of all. How is your revenue been in your business been impacted by the global economic slowdown? Yeah. I mean when it happens I think the first week where we started notice he was getting really serious I. Remember it. The first thing we did was we we had a board meeting and we talked about, okay what's our cash situation and let's make sure we get through this are along a be while maintaining the team for two reasons. One is like you don't want. Downward debt spiral. But also because we have the opportunity to have real impacting this time if we make the changes in adapt effectively, but we won't be able to do so if we don't have the team to do it so we've actually hired over the past few months and we've actually grown over the past few months and we've adapted to do. So the first week was really about scenario planning getting through that after that, we assume the worst but we. Ourselves decided. Well, there's definitely GONNA be less demand for recruitment is definitely less hires which hurts us which hurts our users or are members and we said, okay how can we can we help because if they come on in the no jobs? Well, it's a very bad experience, but it's also it's hurting us. So what we did was we put we put together this program better together and other challenges where youth can develop work experience at the end of it. They get certificates that show that they've accomplished these different challenges participated in it, and at the end, it can be used as work experience towards all of our partner companies. So it's actually giving them something to do some hope, and at the same time, this is generating revenue for us as one example of revenue for us. Another example is just before the crisis a part of our model is we work with large partners and a couple of these large partnership so. Leading recruitment than leading education routes, stunts or came to a halt. And then I don't know if this is despite coverted or because of covid other opportunities came about we've now partnered over the course of Kobe with market leaders in markets that we are not present in or were very marginally presents and he's actually allowing us to take up extra market share and grow in more significant way to timber onwards. Let. Let me ask you about the demographic that you target. Right I mean and I'm Gonna I'M GONNA use this term Gen Z.. Always cringe when I say because I remember like when I was in my twenties and people talked about Gen-x and their slackers and I would just cringe and you're older people talk about Gen xers and I was like, what are you talking about but just just to make this kind of simple we'll we'll just say Gen Z.. So if you're Gen Z. I'm sorry it's annoying I know. This is a really challenging economic moment if you are in high school now and you're going into college or if you're in college, there's a pretty good chance. You'RE GONNA GRADUATE INTO A world with very few jobs. You know a world that we haven't seen certainly since two, thousand, eight, nine and ten but maybe far far more challenging than that. What's your sense I mean? What do you think I mean do do you think that's that's actually true that that is likely to be the case for the next three, four, five years or more. Yeah, I think whether or not we go through a deep recession with mass unemployment particularly for the Youth USA next three four five years very probable that US at least in the short run or to suffer they're normally the last to be hired the first to be fired and that's justified for various reasons including ethical. Oh, they have less commitments than, for example, someone with kids, but it is incredibly difficult and the mental toil of, let's say an eighteen year old doesn't know what's coming up next we need to be able to be resilient and we need to be able to learn how to learn and adapt because we just don't know what's going to happen. So they could be a second. Downturn there could be a third downturn. It could be sustained downturns and US like across society but in particular for the youth they we have an opportunity they have an opportunity to take this and say, okay, it doesn't kill me. It might make me stronger and I can learn from this develop that resilience that five, six, ten years from now I'm able to deal with the next crisis in a more in a stronger way because I'm going to have to do that and some of the skills that need to be developed in my in my opinion or entrepreneurial thinking that ability to be flexible and resilient we we need to do more though the on just the the these massive stimulus packages and. Is trying to do whatever they can for sure this generation needs the government needs to intervene to be able to organizations needs to be able to intervene to support them to the best of their abilities in terms of developing skills and able to resilient. When we come back in just a moment, I'll talk with Taha about college graduates who will probably face a shrinking job market over the next few years stay with us. I'm Guy Roz and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. For this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age aws dot org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition despite the economic slowdown tie and his company good wall have been able to grow their team and stay afloat. But as jobs are drying up across the globe. Many college graduates are looking for opportunities and can't find any if you're like in your early twenties now and you're looking for an opportunity and you can't find one. What would you recommend a young person? Do Who's who's graduating college is just entering the workforce and is kind of trying out different potential career pass. Is it a good time to just steer clear of the workforce for a while and get some more education which in the US means more debts? What do you think? Yeah, I think. Definitely, trying is important, but this might just be an opportunity to start your own thing. You know a lot of great companies came out of the last crisis because they just couldn't find jobs or that opportunity just wasn't there for your. So maybe start one's own thing. It's never been easier to start a business. It's never been easier to try something new. So if even. If it doesn't work. That's incredible work experience. You know when we talk to HR owes of some of the leading companies in the world, what are they looking for or what were they looking for before the crisis indefinitely after is that ability to be entrepreneurial even if you're working for fortune five hundred, so it can't hurt best case scenario you build something. Amazing. Worst case scenario. Fail and you take those skills and you leverage those skills and you keep your mind active. It's so important from a mental health perspective, keep your mind active and then apply them when the market comes back, which will at one point another opportunity. If if maybe starting yourself isn't it join some friends or join or reach out to small startups definitely volunteer is an opportunity. There are a lot of NGOs are nonprofits that need help or need support right now, build up your work experience gained some experience concrete tangible work experience that differentiates further rather than just having eight twelve months in your resume which are empty. Unfortunately, it might not help financial side and that's where that's where one has to be creative and it's it's just really tough and that's What does the government intervention on that front need to be because there's some that just can't afford to do what I just said, which is volunteer or build your own company because they don't have that safety net that don't have that opportunity in and unfortunately there in we're almost out of ideas because he go back to college, you just talked about extra debt but for some unfortunately are going to have to do it, and that leads to more a more philosophical discussion on what is there so much debt attached to a college education where you know in Switzerland, for example, I paid for my undergraduate I paid around a thousand dollars a year it's a leading edge I mean it's like A. Top universities and so that's a that's another discussion. Yeah. I agree with you I think that this is a moment to be entrepreneurial and it's challenging because you're you're right. I mean not everybody can do that from an employer's perspective you mentioned human resource officers, and by the way you're right I mean a human resource officer is very attracted to an applicant who started a business or try to start up in it failed. Because as you say, that's incredible life and work experience. What are some of the characteristics and sort of ways that quote Unquote Jersey works that might be different from previous generations maybe what their expectations for example? Yeah. It's something that comes up quite often the expectations are are huge I think even if we look at the generation before part of it is there needs to be in there. Always has been this need for grits for determination. I think post Covid, we're going to have very likely incredibly resilient and determined generation I. Think it's it's really great for I mean it's it's very tough. Love going to suffer and I hope I hope it will be as as few as possible but coming out of this generally on the whole, there's good reason to believe that this generation. is going to be really conscious a bit like after World War Two really conscious of financials very conscious sauce how lucky they are how privileged quickly things can change how precarious the society within which we live is actually it's a disease that, yes, it's it's it's it's serious, but it could have been a lot worse. It could have been worse could be one hundred exists and it's brought. Our global economy to its knees and you know we feel like we're often the masters of the universe and that's not just Jeb across demographics and we clearly aren't on I. think a little bit of humidity goes a long way. I love the energy of younger people coming in because their ideas are just so radically different from the way people in my business have have seen their profession What is your advice for employers looking to harness the intellectual power of Gen Z.? Yeah. No, it's a really good question. There basics of management that have been the same for every demographic every every niche within that demographic. It's look at maximizing the potential of the particular individual to different people react differently to different forms of management. Within this can talk about trends, but the ability to give them that chance to express themselves. The need for trust is always been there now definitely, so I mean even more so because they know what they're capable, but then also must not forget they are still with very few years of experience and being able to be there to give feedback to to tell them what they're doing. Right. Tell them what they're doing. Wrong. Both sides is critical. So just leaving someone out there in the world is not going to necessarily need to great results either but giving that safe-space giving that trust and creating an environment of being game your to maximize your potential and the. Direct, order may have worked. They may have been able to get away with it in the past, but some people might be okay with it but generally speaking that's that's especially for for you a lot of potential that's just not conducive for maximizing the potential where do you see your your business and what you're doing in five years from now what do you want it to look like I think for us it's always been about really helping as many youth as possible be as inclusive as we. And so we're ready serving youth in one hundred, fifty countries would like to go deeper in certain areas through our partnerships or load serve more youth in a more significant way. Provide more opportunities just re the best experience. That's probably what's most important. I think that's where we can have where we can make our contribution towards society. That's what we're good at, and now it's just about going to the next level. Yes. It's a challenging period, but we're going to be okay. WE'RE GONNA get out of this, and then it's about really taking this opportunity and doing the best we can because we are in a privileged situation if we were if we were unlucky which is the case for many other start ups I, friends who had term sheets for massive rounds of financing evaporates we hear the stories and then know they're just unlucky. So we're in this lucky position to be able to operate and to be able to do what we're doing. Let's. Make, the most out of it and I think that's our that's kind of our duty and I think that's yeah.

The South fancy is a Chinese, like despite with international law might say China was engaging in military activities a few 100 miles away in the parish islands at the same time. The US does this to show China smaller neighbours Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia that we're not going to let them be bullied by China. Beijing doesn't appreciate that. And how I mean, how does this fall into the larger relationship right now? I mean, obviously, the the dynamic between the US and China is, tends to say the least, not just because of the politics. The rhetoric around the corona virus spread. But also the recent law in Hong Kong, in which mainland China now has far more control over the citizenry. They're one of the things that really stuck out over left three months or so has been Beijing's hypersensitivity. Ah, any criticism amid Code 19 and so things whether it's in the South China Sea in east Tennessee, the Indian border Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, rather than deescalate is doubling down on nationalism, and that leads to just continuing escalation with with the U. S. And with its neighbors. What about U. S allies in the region? What's been their response to the U. S deployment in China's reaction to it? We haven't seen a lot of response directly to these carriers Employment over the last few months, we really seen Vietnam, Philippines as well as states outside of South station like Australia, Japan, India calling for greater US supports I think this is it certainly not enough, but it's the first step towards reminding the region that the U. S still has their back. The waterway. We should say. I mean, it just has huge strategic importance right? An estimated 1/3 of global shipping flows through this particular stretch of water. What could be the consequences if tensions there, increase? We've been in the middle of this year's long campaign by Beijing to start slowly squeezing its neighbors out of the region. So for the U. S, and most of the biggest concern is that Beijing creates a de facto zone of Germany in which In which nobody else can sail or freely operate. You know, the U. S. Isn't willing to accept that for a lot of reasons. The problem is that there are no military solution Cedar. And so if this is all the U. S, has its, really not nearly sufficient.

An Ex-Marine's Journey Of Healing And Unraveling The Mysteries Of The Mind With David Richards

"Richards David Richards, is a business professional life coach Yoga instructor and. and Speaker on self development. He spent his early childhood living in various parts of the United States and three years living on the island of Okinawa Okinawa Japan after graduating university with a degree in English he was commissioned and officer in the Marines. He served fifteen years active duty before deciding to break out from the bought that his father and brother at followed in making the military. Career and left the Marines to pursue a life as a civilian, he joined Cisco Systems in two thousand six and shortly thereafter discovered yoga. Don't do it insightful and sometimes silly. It blends elements of Yoga with quantum physics to bring the esoteric together with the practical for eight, truly unique perspective of how the mind works in greeting easily understood self development plans that create lasting change for a more fulfilling life so. These are some clues or hints into our. We might be speaking about today. David really great to have you on our show, and are you ready to inspire? So, glad to be here. Thank you for the introduction. Absolutely a registered with your audience stories and things that have worked things that haven't worked, but the the growth that the journey of life is so absolutely wonderful, so I start. Let's talk about your child to begin with. What was it like growing up in your house or in your home? Yeah, it's. We had a loving very loving nurturing environment. And everybody grows up with their sense of normal, and so for me. My sense of normal was we moved every two to three years. And? What I didn't realize was a lot of that created. Beliefs in me. Just, really long relationships you a one day. You might best friends and the next day I'm moving because. I'd I'd got orders to a new duty station. And so this is certainly before the age of the Internet. And on facebook and chatting and texting, and so our French just stopped But it was great to you know on the on the flip side. It was great to see different parts of the country and early age great certainly live in Japan for for three years now got to South Korea got the Philippines there, and and just being exposed to different parts of the world at that age had tremendous impact that still with me. Today got it. So that moving know that having a friend and losing the friend because you're moving to another city are part of the country. What sort of impacted that have on you in retrospect because I remember. When I was a kid, it happened the other way for me. 'cause I used to have a friend, and then he would move to a different city. Burns would get relocated and deep down. I felt that I could. Could never have a longtime friend. I always wanted to have that best friend as kids. We WanNa feel accepted. We want to have that friendship. You want to feel that you love as a property, but the fact that every time I made a friend, either he would move to a different city or I would move schools and I. Don't know I'm still discovering how that has me long, but how did that? You, don't affect you. Know for sure it really did. It created to beliefs that I took with me into my adult life, and so one of those. Relationships end and so. I just didn't fully appreciate the currency of a rich relationship in rich friendship, and what that meant and certainly had some. as I went you know as I grew up in I still remember this guy comes to mind Jason. Who is my best friend? When we lived through Japan, we stayed touch for years afterwards when his family moved to Virginia, moved North Carolina. But I just didn't appreciate that keeping someone in having a lifelong friend. was really something that I could have and. So that was one belief that just friendships and relationships ended I started carried. You know I've got great friends from high school still. is a long time, but the other believe really that it created was. When it came to romantic relationships, and so, if you have this dynamic that in some cases, relationships end well when it comes to romance, and you almost of have to go all in because you're trying to shore up this relationship before you get to the point where it's GonNa end. And so I became super romantic. I became a really romantic person. I wrote poems. I think when. Other people? In certainly later part of high school into college, discovering physical intimacy I was still kind of looking at romantic. But that you know those those two beliefs I really took with me through big part, my dot life, too I think was only through. Kenner the last you know five or six years that I really awoke to them and realized the power they'd have of me and was able to let them go. Thanks Norfolk shedding. It's interesting how one incident or two incidents. Are you know these things that happen to ourselves? Student Avenue Affect Different aspects of our life, even as we're adults, and only when we sort of. DIG The dive to shine the light on those parts of is which are now in the dock realize. Wow, that that did affect me right, so thanks a lot for sharing now your father and your brother will vote Marines right so what ruled deeply as you're growing up in your decisions, especially as far as the Yeah, you know it's it's funny. It was very creative growing up and I think that was part of the. Reality of not having consistent friend that I went from Grade School. All the way up to high school with I got really creative, so I wrote. I I drew I was very artistic. And in high school actually got something published You know a piece of A. Short story published honorable mention in a magazine nationally. I just thought that everybody can do that I just I didn't realize that it was. The writing was something that I just excel that a little bit so? When it came time to look at life after high school I remember my my dad's down. He said listen. You will pay for part of you're going to pay for the other half and. Get naked scholarship that's great. If not you might look at ROTC and join the military and. I guess one of the beliefs that I I grew up with it mentioned. Was I learned to hate the marine? Corps Because I blame them for always moving around and so. I thought. Okay, if I have to do military scholarship. I'm going to do that, but I'm not going to join the marines because no and. And so and there wasn't any you know. My Dad didn't push me. My brother was kind of going down that path as well. And I got into college and I was going to go into the. and. So every semester when you do ROTC program. You have to do a class for ROTC. And, so the class is like naval weapons system, so it's Kinda like missiles and stuff. It's really cool and second semester. Its naval like engineering like the actual ships engineering, and my mind is a liberal arts mind, and so I started him mechanical engineering just GonNa blacked out. Going to be good. I get to the grains. And so, that's kind of the pathway that took me down. That was you know I know the Maria familiar with them I grew up in the Marine Corps and so that was the path I decided to say.

"Stop the hemorrhage in bilateral relationship which was the case under President Obama in many ways. This was what was pushing into the embrace of China because channel was saying guess what U._S. criticizes young drug issue. I I would support you on drug issue. The second issue is this the trump administration has expanded counterterrorism cooperation with the Philippines under detector because of the siege of Marawi by Isis affiliated elements in two thousand seventy so ironically counters corporation are even better right now under the territory with the United States than in previous administration but that's a function of the nature of threat shared threats that we face in Mindanao in southern Philippines so what's at stake for the U._S.. If China is gaining influence and the U._S. is losing influence in the Philippines well first of all if the United States loses Philippines China. Let's say the Philippines ends its treaty aligns with the United States or dramatically downgrades security cooperation with the United States well first of all that's a huge psychological blow and the second thing is the Philippines is very important in terms of geographic location. Remember Subic we can Clark in the Philippines were site of biggest American overseas naval and airforce basis in the Cold War period and they're now relevant again not against the Soviet threat but against the Chinese strength in the Western Pacific Vic and the South China Sea so a lot is at stake for the United States here but this is my fundamental argument. If this is boxing we're just around three or four. There has been no knockout yet because just as the United States struggles to regain regain the kind of comprehensive influence that you saw over the Philippines during the administration the Chinese are also struggling to actually take the Philippines into their sphere of influence precisely because of public skepticism sees them but also the Philippine military establishment is very close to the United States and president has struggled to convince the Philippine military to embrace China they still see China as the primarily external security threat up to the Philippines. Do you think that if China were to just take the Spratly islands which are disputed that the Philippines would just allow them to do that or would there be a fight. What did you do once? You're not if the Chinese engaged in skirmishes or in any drastic action that essentially kicks out the Philippines from the area I don't the benefit of an organization can survive by just sitting back and in fact we are seeing a preview of that with. With what's happening right now where a lot of people are saying. Hey you have to take tough stunt the almost twenty two for fishermen and drown them. I don't think even deterred himself wants to go down in history as the man who lost Philippine Landon territory in the South China Sea well and and do you think that the U._S. would come to the rescue of the Philippines.

"The Philippines from where the date is recorded in Washington. We believe the war breaks out on December seventh that was December eighth in the west of west of the Pearl Harbor, which is means the Philippines. There's a meeting MacArthur and heart the day before what is the focus of the meeting job. Warning came out of the senior American civilian in the Philippines. The High Commissioner Philippines. Mr sayer. You look the senior American civil servants Philippines. He had also received the warning. And he immediately asked to see Admiral Hart internal MacArthur to get their take on. What was about to happen is interesting contrast between the two because MacArthur was in the process of building up the Philippine army. That was his great project when he was retired, and there's visor to the Philippine government. And when he was recalled active duty in July forty one is kind of you can save the Philippine army was MacArthur's baby. If you will and McCarthy was convinced the Japanese would not strike until the spring nineteen forty two heart. Who would also be looking at the same intelligence as MacArthur didn't agree with that Admiral was convinced. Japanese were on the verge of striking. He told Mr. Sayer that and in the last week before the war, apple heart, took some really really excellent steps to dispose the fleet to get the fleet small as it was as ready for war as it could be. Because again, these two senior officers kind of interpreting warning signs differently on those days, you mentioned the last couple of days before the war. They will also visited by the recently arrived British by several Thomas Phillips with just bought out the big battleship prince of Wales Singapore, and he flew to Manila Alaska days before the war started British apple Phillips was Courtney combined American British offense stance against this imminent, lose pending Japanese attack. Do they get final word? The Japanese are on the move. Philip stashes back to Singapore. MS lasting the Americans see of him because three days later, he goes down on his flagship, the prince of Wales off the coast of Malaysia, you know, as part of this. You know, overwhelming Japanese era effort, they were making against the allies. The important point is that. Part both received this warning for Washington. Heart was much more convinced Japanese were on the verge of striking the MacArthur was I just days before heart had with had recalled the fourth marines from the Chinese mainland where they'd been in and around Shanghai. And they just what they got there on the fourth just days before they the US marines arrive, do I have the date riders the fourth the fourth rains arrived in two contingents the thirtieth of number November and the first of December. I believe it was. But you're absolutely right on the the fourth marines had been in Shanghai since nineteen twenty seven Shanghai was very international city, and basically the the the very weak Chinese government had ceded too many of the western imperial powers. The ability to come run Shanghai the way they wanted to. So the Americans the British the French the talian all had. Troops in Shanghai, protecting their civilians fourth marines have been there since nineteen twenty seven and in that last week before the start of the war the fourth marines bait there, a scape on a couple of chartered ocean liners, and then the little China gunboats, and if any of your listeners have ever seen the great Steve McQueen, nineteen sixties movie, the sand pebbles, they'll know exactly what these little gun boats. Look like three of those little gun boats. Justice fourth marines were leaving three of those little gun boats, also sailed across the South China Sea to make their escape, and they all manage to reach the Philippines for war started. Right. And they get the nose of the attack on Pearl Harbor and just within hours. Nell Betty and zero those of the three codenames for the aircraft the Japanese launched against them all over at about twelve. My note says about twelve thirty in the afternoon now, we're we're focusing on the navy here because John is focused on the navy marine story and the ad and the baton. Fleet. That's out in the harbor, but will mention that the Japanese were coming to destroy the airfields in the aircraft and chief among the aircraft that the Japanese wanted to get where the b seventeen why were the b seventeen still on the ground? John. To this day, John it is still controversial, you know, not not roughly nine hours after Pearl Harbor because when they get the word and the Philippines in the early morning hours of the eighth of December. Because you pointed out there on the other side of the dateline it's still dark. You know, they still have time to react before. The sun comes up, you know, because war planes didn't do much in the way of night bombing. So first light on the December, the Americans got a bunch of their fighters up in the air expecting the Japanese twelve live. You know, what the crack of dawn, and they don't and hours go by and there's indecision MacArthur's air command or goes to him trying to get permission to bomb Formosa. They dilly dally all morning long with a combination of seven. Four and the submarines of the Shattuck fleet. The army's be seventeen in the navy submarines where the supposed to be the main field for the Philippines to include reaching out is striking Japanese and again, it's still controversial to this day. But the bottom line is to a combination of indecision,.

"Fighting for MacArthur is the book, John Gordon is the author of the navy and marines corps is desperate defence of the Philippines. We'll get onto the fight. Now. John because submarines were they were what the navy thought was the war plan to defeat the Japanese invasion. The fourteenth imperial army is coming on. It has with it a one really good division. I think it was the forty eighth and secondary division. The sixteenth. They were going to land north of Manila on Luzon and south Manila on Luzon and then pincer towards Manila. The Manila Bay MacArthur had a plan to defeat them at the beaches with his so-called Philippine divisions. That didn't hold. Well. There was one really good cavalry regiment. You note the last cavalry combat unit in the and the history of the United States, but the submarines John you concentrate on that why we're not the submarines effective against the Japanese invasion. Again. It was a terrible disappointment to the navy on that first day of war all about half the submarine sortie Manila Bay to take up their war positions. Some of them were post to lose on to form like a shield against you know, alive in Japanese troop transports to land on the island or their subs percent much for their field. They were set up to Formosa there were sent over to the Indo China coast some over setup in a direction of Japan itself in an attempt to attack Japanese warships and merchant shipping. But within the first week, the navy learned to it's it's it, you know, to it's great shock that. He was getting report after report from this commanding officers city submarines that something was badly wrong with the torpedoes submarine captains were taking four five six per pito shots at enemy tankers or enemy warships or enemy cargo ships at you know, at certainly. What appeared to be them you? Good shots real one or two miles distance from the solve and nothing was happening. You know, they were they were the submarine captains were experimenting kind of vary. The depths of their torpedoes thinking, the torpedoes we're wanting to deep under the Japanese ships. But one in fact, was happening was the detonators of torpedoes were very very faulty in in the period of the nineteen thirties before the start of the war. The navy department had just not properly tested these submarine Petito detonators. So it was in the first three weeks of combat when all these eighty Shaddock fleet's submarines were tempting to one protect Luzon from Japanese landing and to go much further afield to attack Chapman shipping they were discovering to their horror. These these poor pedophiles just weren't working in anyone ever have to answer for the fact that the Mark six torpedoes didn't work. It would not have been a hard test to take them out in sync. A scou- somewhere who who who walked the plank for that? Well, I know the navy's bureau of ordinance, you know, was had lots of of red faces over this some submarine skippers will relieve because they were thought to be not aggressive enough. But really it was wasn't so much their fault. Texas. They didn't work they didn't work at midway of the coral sea. Or the torpedo plates were total three about a year and a half into the war amazing incredibly it was a year and a half into the war before the navy had really fixed the problems with these submarine torpedoes, not detonating. It's staggering John. Consider we sent submarines and torpedo planes to their deaths without torpedoes and the navy didn't figure it out right away. With all these reports they were taking their were taking shots right up against ships. John, and they were not getting not getting results. Somebody in Washington was out of their mind. It's it's one of the, and of course, MacArthur in the Philippines, and as you know, from from you know, from reading the book relations between the army and the Knicks. Mix network. Important because MacArthur perceived submarines for performing so badly. Right MacArthur figured out right away that what he needed to do to save his reputation was put out a lot of propaganda about how things were going well for him and how he's going to defeat the Japanese on the beach at the same time. He comes up with a strategy to blame the navy to blame Admiral Hart, did Admiral Hart know, what he was up doing. He did that they're they're MacArthur after about the first week of the war actually during the first week of the war. And then repeatedly thereafter, MacArthur was sending messages back to Washington to army chief-of-staff journal Marshall and two Mr. Stimpson who's the secretary of the army, basically painting a picture that he was overwhelmed by Japanese numbers, which he wasn't. He had more men than the fourteenth the American army and the Philippine army had considerably more men than what Japanese landed on Luzon. But of course, he he also turned on the navy and Admiral Hart and Admiral stark, the chief of naval operations in Washington were spending an awful lot of time. Trying to deflect the blows coming from MacArthur saved. The navy was defeatist. The navy wasn't helping the defense of the Philippines. The submarines were failing one thing after another, and you know. Unfortunately, you know, up in a lot of senior folks in the navy while this campaign was going on to include all the way up to the fall of credit or may of nineteen forty two. They were getting a bit more and more of a feel of the plop again, this Stickney claims Douglas mccarthur was made when he said that the Japanese feared the Russians. I mean, it's up to read the the you've reproduced some of his communication in the book. John are are you alone. Now in saying, this is generally understood isn't taught at the academy that MacArthur was delusional. Well, I'll say this John that that and as I mentioned in the closing chapter my book, I talked about how army navy relations were strained for the rest of the war. Because of the navy's experiences with MacArthur in this first Philippine campaign. I think MacArthur's reputation was very good all the way up until about the early nineteen eighties. Most of the books were written about a moose. The things were said about him tend to be very complimentary question when Truman relieved him during the Korean war. Humans popularity plummeted. John you've reproduced facts he lies to his commanding officer question. Absolutely. No question that MacArthur to use a modern term McCarthy was spinning the news people their lives. That's what he did any any only visited baton once. All right. Let's get back to Bataan because the Japanese are on shore because MacArthur first of all he didn't send the seventeenth sooner set them. And then he also claimed that he was going to stop them at their beaches and lied about stopping them. But they're beaches, thanks to the twenty six I think the cavalry regiment. They delay the Japanese advance. So that the Filipinos in the American army fall back to the Bataan peninsula, but as of the twenty twentieth twenty-first twenty-second, the ninth of January the Japanese are already cracking through the beginning defenses. They fall back midway to the rear battle position. But now a striking battle that John features for some pages the Japanese attempt to laugh. Landing around the American lines on a place called Langa scou-, y and point and that is well to the south, and it wasn't Japanese regiment. They're only thirteen two battalions. They're only thirteen fighting battalions at one point on a baton by the Japanese in two of them were attempting to come around to the back, and John you tell the wonderful story of the navy fighting on the land because there were no army men around. It's one of the most interesting parts of this campaign, sailors, ended up doing a lot of unique. And Hello ick things in this campaign that they never did elsewhere in the war, and and just pray quickly during this late December early January time that you're describing most as as they have to evacuate Manila is they have to pull back to correct or and the three of the little harbor forts, and they have to pull back to Bataan you'll the armies retreating most of the larger ships of the attic fleet cruisers destroyers, most of the submarines most of the support vessels head south. They head south to join up with the British and Dutch down in in the Dutch East Indies in with the British in Singapore. The navy leaves behind almost all the marines, nearly sixteen hundred marines and about twenty five hundred sailors and the little China gunboats, stay the PT boats. If your listeners have ever seen the movie they were expendable with John Wayne anyone? Thirty four thirty five and forty five minutes. They leave some minesweepers behind all to provide some naval support for the fall of for the defensive Matan. But then they also created some infantry units because they had sailors who had been the survivors of the bombed-out Kabibi navy yard sailors who scare units had no more airplanes. Sailors ships have been lost these guys and a handful of marines were formed into an infantry battalion. And when the Japanese made that landing on the southwestern tip of the ten you mentioned the army was in the process of retreating from the first line on Matan to the second line Justice, the Japanese maybe some abuse landings. So the army had lightened no reserves to spare. Everything was committed to try to form the second line about halfway down the Bataan peninsula. And so the only nearby unit was his battalion of sailors. Which gets committed as soon as they learn the Japanese restore and in some wild jungle fighting these completely inexperienced, sailors for all intents and purposes, they fight Japanese with standstill and the Japanese captain who commands the battalions, they find his diary. That's why we know how they what how they went through these five days of fighting captain, hit Cada, DACA, capital Dhaka, and John because it's six years later. I wanna make a note of the fact that these Japanese imperial army officers, and these units here, they fought very, well, they were they were outnumbered in many instances and their own superior officers pulled out the best division too early and left the inferior divisions inadequately supplied and undermanned for the for the assault on Bataan. So there were mistakes on both sides. Yeah. And and the I was very very fortunate to find that diary of that Japanese captain, who's the senior officer fighting against these this naval battalion, they have they have the original the original diary with an English. Translation is located in the MacArthur archives in Norfolk and the the ark of down. There. Who is tremendous helped me over period of several years. He had long had this Japanese diary stashed way wasn't really sure what it was. You know, they had the translation, but they weren't really sure where this unit was that was fighting, but I put the pieces of the story together. And it was just a one more. Find to have the diary of the senior Japanese officer who fought against this battalion of sailors and marines in southern ten April eighth ninth seventy five thousand American army Philippine scouts Philippine army soldiers and Philippine Constabulary just surrender between seventy and seventy five thousand. Thousand of them to the Japanese on Bataan the rest have evacuated to Caribbean door when we come back the defensive the rock between early April and.
