James Cameron's 'Avatar' Is Accused of "cultural Appropriation"
"The lengths, the woke army, is going to these days. It's so annoying. And more so because all it takes is one loudmouth on Twitter and then more and more people catch on in a way we go. One person on Twitter said, Cameron is accused of stealing themes, history and imagery from Native American and indigenous cultures for his latest blockbuster. The sequel to the 2009 hit avatar is about colonizers who attempt to take the land of native people. In Cameron's version, humans have been forced off earth due to its dwindling resources. Much like the first flick, the movie has a predominantly all white cast playing the fictional na'vi aliens. And Zoe Saldana is not in this movie. And I love during the first one, didn't love the movie, but I liked watching Zoe Saldana. I like her. She's good. Some Native American influencers named UA big gay, I think I'm saying it right. BE GAY is really speaking out against the new avatar. Do not want avatar. The way of the water, he's also the chair of indigenous pride LA. See, these are the kind of guys who have nothing to do all year. They've been plotting and waiting for the new avatar to come out. And now they have something to do. Now they have an agenda. And he's telling people, join natives and other indigenous groups around the world and boycotting his horrible and racist film. Brigade also said that indigenous cultures were appropriated a harmful manner to satisfy a white man's savior complex. He also referred to the 2010 interview that the Cameron gave to The Guardian in which he revealed that the he went to Brazil and visited the jingu people of the Amazon, a trip that made him reflect on the experiences of North American Indians and ultimately inspired him to make the first Avatar film. And after release of that film in 2009, the term blueface became shorthand in alleging the avatar universes appropriation and the implication there was that the franchises representation of the na'vi as Native Americans carried the same racist undertones associated with blackface or yellow face and I don't like Cameron, but at least he said the right thing he fired back. Listen, avatars and science fiction retelling of the history of North and South America in the early colonial period. It's very pointedly made reference to the colonial period in the Americas with all its conflicts and bloodshed between the military aggressors from Europe and the indigenous peoples. Europe equals earth, the Native Americans are the na'vi, it's not meant to be subtle.

"Toys. He's then also really drawing on all of his old films. I know that can be something that's a positive for some people to see that. But I'm watching him take parts of the abyss, parts of Titanic. And put them together on screen here. Of course, parts of the first avatar. I was even thinking today, is there some connection to the terminator films? And there might actually be in terms of the idea of protecting your family, putting an importance on that, the promise of youth and the next generation, the attempts at worldbuilding and dragging this out into multiple installments of a series. That's all on display there, but to me that just felt a little bit tired more than anything. And these depictions of the battles. These depictions of warriors of marines, it's as if he's still looking at everything through this lens of Vietnam and insurgencies and what we saw in aliens. He's depicting these characters the exact same way like he transported them out of that film into this film and you're right as well, Josh about the gender dynamic here. The use of that baby girl line, Zoe Saldana, you said she was in this film, is she? Really? She doesn't really. She's good. She's really good. But she doesn't have enough to do. No, that's true. And the movie also, it's not about this, clearly. But I think you still notice it. I did that the movie has it both ways, where she's a warrior, a fierce warrior, sometimes more excited or more interested in getting into battle than Jake is, and she wants to protect her family. She's also the character who's still very much stuck in the hut, doing the cooking and it seems like the picking up around the place. So even the gender dynamics here all seem a little bit out of whack and archetypal, old school, the most interesting parts of this film potentially are things that are all just glossed over to set up plot points and to set up the basic framework of the story. It's ideas like bringing back Steven Lang's character, bringing him back from the dead in a na'vi body and the technology behind that. The thinking behind that, how that would mess with the characters head. For the movie, it's no, we just need to do this because it sets up that he's going to go back into the forest and he's going to fight and it's about revenge. It doesn't really want to talk about that. Even this idea that the movie begins with Josh about happiness. Okay, wait a minute, let me stop you there because you've thrown a number of things. And let me just say one thing is having to do with the Steven Lang character acquire it. I don't think this is necessarily a strength. I think it is more of just an intriguing idea, but they do give him a son to actually explore those very ideas that you're talking about. I don't know that this works because the sun is a little bit of an odd character, spider played by Jack champion. It's very convoluted if you haven't seen the film, but basically he was too young when Stephen Lang left or was killed in the first movie. He was a baby. This character. And so he's grown up now, he couldn't leave the planet, and so he's grown up among the na'vi. And so this is a character entirely built for exploring those questions you were talking about. Now yes. How successful it is, but it's not as, I mean, you're not characterizing it quite fairly by saying they just have Lang's characters show up to fight again. No, okay, but let me clarify one thing. First of all, how successful it is is still a big question and an important one. And the moments of interest. But it's a new idea. It's a fresh idea. But the moments of internal conflict that we get are few and far between and the few that we do get show up at opportune times when the script needs that to happen to bail a character out or to add some tension to that scene to make something else happen. And that way they feel to me, Josh, not actual ideas that the filmmaker wants to explore, their ideas that are there for the sake of convenience. You didn't think it was interesting what eventually happens with kwari. Specifically related to spider, because it's setting up future films. That's the other thing I felt really aware of. Okay, but it can do more than one thing. I thought I thought that choice was directly related to some of these provocative questions about having this character be resurrected in a certain way. And what that what that means for family lineage. And I think there are a lot of interesting questions about lineage and things going on here. I don't know that those are the strengths of this film. So I'm not going to, I'm not going to fight you too hard, but I think they're there. I think they're fresh ideas. And I think they work a little bit better than maybe what you're describing. Well, I do want to say, I am also including in that not just the family tension and that dynamic with his son character, I mean just the idea away from that. Take out the spider character completely. Imagine if this movie wanted to explore in a meaningful way, what kind of havoc that would wreak on a character to find out that you've been implanted with somebody's memories. And you've now been sent on this mission. But what does that really what does that really mean? That's why spider is there to provoke those questions. I'm saying, I think the idea itself is potent enough that even without spider, it's maybe it's from a different film, clearly Cameron didn't care to go down that sci-fi aspect of it. But that would have been that's still supports for me, my point, my overall point, that the most provocative ideas that the film could have explored, the movie decides not to. No, it decides to explore it through the character of spider, which you didn't find compelling. That's different. Either way, problematic. Spider has other issues. Besides the one we're quibbling about. All right, I interrupted you. So there was something else you were going to. Well, I was just going to say, again, a different film, but a provocative idea. The whole opening is all about happiness. It's all about this idea of finding peace. And what we know about movies like the new world, movies, the deal with this idea of characters who have escaped the structure and rigidity of society and they've explored these native lands and they've found connections to the characters and mother nature and all those things. There's a tension there and that eventually that does have to end. And you have to wonder just as human nature goes. No matter how much you think that's the piece that you want and the happiness that you want,

"What could work that he was saved by a character that speaks English? One of the navy. I mean, by the chief conveniences. Well, and also that she's going to kill him and then a magical dandelion lands on the arrow. I love when that happens. I want a magical dandelion, lands on my arrow on my table. I want to spotlight here because we were talking about this movie. I really love when she shows up and she's like, you're like a baby. She's so cool. I want to spotlight because we were saying this movie, this isn't about the characters, and about performance, whatever. She is so fucking Zoe Saldana as she was on my ballot that year. Same. She made the 5. I think she absolutely should have been nominated for best actress that was obviously. It was never gonna happen. Very much. But you can really feel like watching it again now, I don't think the technology feels aged as much as you can just recognize there is a subtlety of performance that can come across in motion capture now that we didn't have the receptors to capture. So they had to be pretty years ago. Thanos micro expressions that you can tell this technology could not support at the time and Saldana knows exactly how much to push through the technology to give this very expressive performance versus someone like Worthington who's a lot more stoic. It's deeper than that though too, obviously we've seen her do something somewhat similar as gamora in the marvel movies. But something that she does, I was reminded of this because I watched boogie nights right around the same time as this movie.

"Apartment I ever had when I first moved out. Right out of high school. Like the biggest movie ever, like what are the characters names? What's the movie about? The actors. Nobody knows. Zoe Saldana. It was 2009. So I was working for them, but not quite in the office yet. The na'vi. It's great. The Savi looks so stupid to me. And it's like, if Avatar 2 might have an amazing story, but nothing will change the fact that those things just look incredibly stupid. I can't get their aliens in that sense. They think they think we're the ones that look stupid. That's fair. What about that alien and Star Wars new hope? It's just clearly just a fly costume that they got from a horror movie. That's like every alien in the cantina. It's just a mummy. He's just wrapped in bandages. I was just a wolf man. I'm three episodes into Light & Magic, and it's one of the best things I've watched all year. I kept on trying to put it on the background to do stuff while I'm doing other things. I just riveted. I told you. They filmed everything at the time. I know. It's crazy. Everything was on a camera. But even like then, in like 78, 79, George Lucas saw a computer graphics and he was like, I want that. In 1978, this is relevant to the scoop audience. To a college in Salt Lake City in Utah. And they're like, they're like talking to this guy. Well, they talk to some people about computer graphics. But they have footage of a person at this college showing off like a polygon render of a Chalice. And you're like, oh, so that's what they had for computer graphics back then. That's pretty cool. And then he does like a layer pass. He's like, these are called pixels. They're filling in the polygon. And he's like, this is what a pixel is. You kind of explain it. And then he starts rotating and it's kind of like a blocky Chalice. And then he just goes full on and like layers it with like a smooth like rendering with like light shining off of it. And then like the full texture of the Chalice, like basically what a video game looked like by 2000. 1978. Like, it looks better than the first 3D video games. 15 years later. A 100%. In 19 78. And like George Lucas was like, I think we should make movies every time. And then that's how we got Jurassic Park. In ten years later, which is like unbelievable. That's like the biggest technological leap. I just can't believe it. Yeah. It reminded me that George Lucas, you can make a lot of criticisms about the choices he's made in his filmmaking, but the dude is a visionary. Unquestionably is a visionary. And everybody that worked in this costume shops were all their own visionaries. They all were like crazy talented people. Got costumes, I used to cost them shop or whatever. Effects shop. Also in the middle of all this high-tech stuff, he's like, oh, I really think this should be stop motion. Do we have a stop motion guy? And then they show they're like, look how amazing this still looks. And it looks like total crap. It's like, you know, this tauntauns, you can't really suspend disbelief anymore. You know, I was like, wow, that's really good and jerking all over the screen. That's really only a one foot toy with a figure without a face on it. Oh, wow. Well, I watched her turn the Jedi recently in the rancor still looks really, really good, I think. Yeah, they smooth things up by then. Yeah. But then they show it King Kong. Like, I can't believe how great this movie is. But obviously, it just looks like that. Yeah. Have you gotten to the episode where they talk about poltergeist? No, I don't like that movie does. Well, that's a great movie, but there's a really good spooky. They explain how they implode the house at the end of the movie, and it's amazing. Oh, weird. Yeah. It's really good. Just every time I see a camera shooting a spaceship backwards by basically throwing the camera at a model of the way they did. Of the millennium falcon, zooming away. It was just a Polaroid. It's crazy. It's so unbelievable. So smart.

"A closed source company that do things behind doors or something. At least once we put everything out, which, by the way, is just really, really hard to do with hardware. And so we heard that criticism of why didn't you do it so far? Well, because at some point, the cost of a tax was higher than the rewards. But we will do it relatively soon next week. So yeah, I totally, I totally get that point, but I think in my consideration and our thinking and we thought about this problem for quite a while, it is privacy preserving it truly is, like, just by design by the use of this knowledge proof that we were doing here, right? And neither of us or anyone else will be able to do by design of the system, kind of really, really scary things. And that's the most important thing to get right. And then there's, of course, many things we have to figure out together to community. Many things I probably don't think about at this point. I think you're right about that part, of course. But I can not give you a great answer here, because I think you're right. And I think we have to figure out those things together. I think civil resistance is one of the biggest problems of that space is unsolved. Everyone knows that. And that is a way forward. And let's try to get it to work. Yeah, so maybe let's put the biometric thing behind us. I've also queasy bought this, but let's talk about the protocol. So basically what technologies are based on and I mean, if you plan to onboard the first billion users with this, how is it going to scale? Right, so the token itself is the token is minted as an L two on top of Ethereum, an optimistic rollup. We are using at this point at least Hubble from Ethereum foundation, and we put a lot of resources to make it even more gas efficient. So we make our own sequence implementation and things like that. And the reason here is just make it very gas efficient. But we will allow and we are working on this right now. Users to mint the token under the ecosystems too, like Solana. For example, right? Just because we want to be ecosystem chain agnostic the whole protocol should be like that. So the proof of person itself, of course, should be able to be used by people no matter which ecosystem, if it's near Solana Ethereum, whatever. It's just a very powerful primitive that should be open. So basically I have an attestation on each chain. I choose to interact on. And then how does it how does it connect me to my account? So first of all, we are using photos for this whole series knowledge proof part we're using what is called semaphore, also from very Whitehead from the theory foundation. So that is with that, you can, you can prove uniqueness or kind of inclusiveness in a set or not without revealing your actual private key that that is what you want to do here. And yeah, so that's from the Ethereum foundation we're using right now and we will reimplement that, for example, on Saldana, because basically what is happening is there's a merkle tree and you use the knowledge proofs to kind of create another fire on your phone. So that will be the hard part. Reimplementing those things on other ecosystems too, but right now it's only theorem. So there's two sets of public private keys, right? So basically what happens if I use if I lose my I mean, I'm not going to lose my IRS, but hopefully, but what happens if I lose my phone? Well, I mean, so your normal Ethereum public private key is just the app will have an iCloud backup that for that part. Maybe we'll implement other things like social recovery. I think you're aware that's just a problem to hold. Ecosystem has. That's the hard part for the if you lose your kind of it's actually the semaphore key. It's not like a normal public private key. But if you lose that part, theoretically, you could show up in front of an orb, you need another information too for that. Like the phone numbers or something like that. But we do not have that implemented. So right now, the simpler does answer is you lose your identity at this point. And there's things we have to implement in the future for that. I had a question here. It would be possible because I think what's important to realize here is that the onboarding and the issuance of this semaphore kind of coupon is separate from the actual wallet and then holding and movement of funds would it be possible for any Ethereum wallet to like if I want to use my ledger or if I want to use zen go or anything that's like wallet compatible, could I not just use any other wallet? Sure. Yeah. It will even be even the onboarding to roll cone will be will be possible throughout the wallets. So we have an app, of course, we're building our app ourselves because it's just like in the first realization is onboarding people in, I don't know. All over the world at the same time is really, really hard, like trying to people on board and Kenya with meta mask doesn't go that well. Let me tell you that. So that's why we just building out an app that makes all of that much, much easier. But everything is open and other apps can integrate even at onboarding. So let's talk about onboarding and incentives. So basically you actually give people tokens for.

This was back in the eighties before there were any stalking laws whatsoever. And there was a drifter from scotland. Arthur jackson i was at a man saw me in a film called defiance starting opposite jan michael vincent he moved to. I'm really sorry about that. I didn't know you were there and in his mind. Oh she's going to be mine. I gotta work. I'm going to get killed. Who felt that. God had ordained than to be together while arthur. Richard jackson was deranged. He was also cunning. So jackson set out to find a way to get to theresa saul dumb. The hired a private investigator to try to find out where she lived. What this private investigator was able to give. Jackson was the unlisted phone number of saldanha's mother and so jackson called saldanha's mother pretending to be martin. Screw says he's assistant and saying that he had a package. Perhaps the script that needed to be delivered to theresa saldana. What was her address. And so unknowingly theresa sell. Donna's mother gave arthur richard jackson. Her daughters address showed up but he didn't show up with flowers cans and he showed up with a very sharp knife and he confronted her and started violently stabbing her and she played the lead and dramatization of her own story. One of the unique things about victims for victims is that you have the actress who really experienced the horror event. And she's playing herself. It was unprecedented for theresa saldana to bannon movie to stars herself mcdonagh as a victim of a knife attack. That almost killed her. That's what was selling unusual but her motive was to help people to warn people to say if it can happen to me. It could happen to you on march fifteenth. I was delivering water. I heard a female screaming. I could see a crowd gathering in the middle of hayworth. I don't know how many times she was sliced by this guy but malta poll people watching everywhere. Nobody doing anything quite frankly at this we all. I grabbed him from behind not knowing the other night until he pulled the knife out of her chest and then he turned it on me and at that point was the point of no return i had fight which took away the night groping. It's hard to describe. I just doing the right thing. I think quote was. She said. I saw blonde angel. I guess that was me unless there was some angel behind me either. I didn't see it was an absolute miracle. That's racist sell donna. Suffi- the attack theresa never blamed her mother who was very important for theresa. Try to absolve her mother from any blame any guilt again. The way the story was presented to the mom. She thought she was doing theresa favor. She that she was helping reece's career she's gonna get her in touch with this big time director. Who's going to give her the role of a lifetime. She wound up continuing to succeed. As an actor. Theresa sow donna the commission. She was an example of someone who the worst thing in the world happened to gathered her strengthen work not only on behalf of herself but on behalf of others in the same situation. Arthur jackson served fifteen years in prison and eventually died in a psych ward in two thousand four. But his blueprint for deception. We live on and inspire ardo to use the very same about that people magazine. And that's where i got. The i get to hire the private investigator this tendency by the way for these stalkers to copy one another study one another so he hired a private investigator who went to the envy and obtained rebecca schafer's address. It was very very simple in his diary bardo roads. I have an obsession with the unattainable. And i need to destroy that which i cannot absolve with greyhound.

"So i go by. I want to say a couple of the year. It's not something that i can say. It happened overnight. I think over a couple of years. I went from jumping out of bed and wanting to go to work and being excited for the day to alma god from dragging to work again on getting to fry like friday. Can't get here soon enough. Having the schooner arching negative feeling and it was always a great excuse for for was feeling that way was in this project once. This project is finished. you know. i'm going back to normal once. This initiative is done once presentation like there was always a good excuse on why i was feeling a sway and back chow. You know a wick became a month king six months and it ends up being two years to two or three years of just healing this engquist dragging my feet to work everyday like the weight of the world was in my shoulder. I and yes. There were the good moments those moments of high but for the most part it was just the soon of us kind of advocate. Have a conversation. It's like oh my god it it just. It wasn't good and and it wasn't until one day husband. Why just told me like. I think you're not having fun anymore. I just want opinion out out there and hit me. That having been sabae is like i sing. You go to work every day for many many years with a smile on your face. And you can't like you just jump on ben and now one singer that that's not happening anymore just putting it out there and i think that's when i realized yeah right lady i'm not having fun is now john Yeah and and so. I think that there's a spectrum. Let's differentiate this a little bit. So i see know job is one where we're just getting out of bed. Going through the motion you know punching. The clock can't wait till friday and then career. I think it would be the next stop as you say. Okay i'm excited about it. You know i have some passionate about but you know it's my career and then right now you talk on your website. Abou- you're passionate your purpose. Do you think that passion and purpose that he's is beyond career disgrace about that definitely It's aligned beyond but it's a lot when when your year and your i've learned through my own experience through the experience that i that i have to my clients when your career is aligned to your passion your purpose. That's when the bill. That's when you feel like you could do that all day long with a smile on your face and you can't get enough of it. 'cause you're really like refilling that that passion purpose to the work that when you're doing things because you need the paycheck because you need the financial security because you got there for whatever the reason you can't even remember how and now you're just like clocking you know every day but you're really not understanding the personal why the behind it a biased. Just i just meet the next eight check to pay my bills. Then that's when the career is not aligned with with your purpose and with your passion you can still have roles in your career. Ch and i think in any cases i had rates in my career but now it was just like i want to get to the next level in hopes that that would be a status faction to me but that doesn't necessarily mean that it was aligned with my passion. It was just the line with. I wanna feel both. I was hoping the fact rose would meet would be the answer a feeling fulfilled however it really wasn't in was just new learning opportunity. That was it. So you're right there. They can be alive but they're not necessarily always lot. No i think that's absolutely fair. You're saying passion and can be that intersect the not always right so you can have those moments passion and career. You know i i. I don't passion but you have those wins right. So let's say you do really well on a project that you get a promotion or whatever and there's like these little peaks of happiness and then you go back to the homeo- stasis baseline with passion and i've seen people that are really operating in there. What is i. I think it's gay hendricks and it says there's a book about the leaks. The big leap. I believe how lincoln and the show notes but is that zone of genius and those people that are operating in that zone of genius or in that area passion. I don't know there's just certain energy about them that you can't bottle up and i wish you could bible up in people's we'd be really wealthy you and i but it's definitely something different than i think jobs. I completely agree. And i love your reference for the genius because i think that's exactly right. It's when you get your energy from because of what understand why you're doing it. It's something that's very important to you because you're creating an impact were you're clear on on the value that you bring to whatever it is and one thing i worked with my aunts and i do that myself is doesn't only have to be in your night defy when you when you're lying to your lives in all aspects of their life with what's important to you. Both from a volunteer perspective made e from a personal perspective. Maybe in the community that you live in with your family friends were nap. Fridays when you clear on what that purpose is and you live and breathe through it every day in everything that you do that snag when things like this discussions energy comes through when when you feel like everything you do is meaning behind it and and you feel full. So that's the filling fulfill nece. It's not only in your nine to five is really embracing it in every aspect but so wonderful and lovely so. I'm sure there are women that are going to be listening. Well how do i find my purpose. So one thing that that hearing meal. It's resounding theme of the word y. Or the question. Why so i wanna ask. Would you say that star finding purposes. Just asking yourself. Why am i doing this. And then when you get that answer and i think it's not from the head i think it's a combination of the head heart gut. Whatever you wanna call intuition once you get the answer to that you just keep asking why until you get to the center of it. The heart of the matter. I could just be. Hey it's a paycheck and you you may just know okay this job but if there is confusion it sounds like you keep asking. Well why am i doing this..

"Home you know. I don't wanna say for roy is you never know. I've learned to note the to appreciate chains. Yes for for the most part. It's really become home and to getting used to a completely new life and in moving from one of the biggest cities in the world. I currently live in rhode island to the smallest hit the united states. Absolutely a big big change. And i thrive on change of this was like nothing. I never lived before the the last ten years. It's really made me appreciate along things. And now joan like feel fulfilled in what i do and where i am. Yeah that's so great so one of the things that you you told me because you were bilingual in mexico city. Am i correct. 'cause you already in a big company so i think you are already fully fluent in english and obviously you're native spanish so you mentioned you thought that the acclamation of the us culture and way of life wasn't gonna be that big of a deal. But one thing. I thought we should point out. Is that there were some nuances or some communication barriers than some things that impacted you as you were getting used to this way of life. So can you share with our listeners. A little bit more about that. Yes so i went to a british school in mexico so since the age of three four i would say english was almost my first language and i was the air four from kennedy so i really never thought of english as a second language to me. It's always been a part of you know speaking it fluently and understanding english and spanish at the same time so we're me never made anything of it. It came natural to me. But when i when i moved to the us At the beginning it felt like while you country but stay language. That i've been fluent in and i always consider my first timers for a very long time and i realized that i was going to actually have a language barrier food and i always share these moments especially through the first year of being here where you know being in a car to where people can understand what's happening in the cartoon but i didn't say it was like hearing people go like i was like can you please repeat that is i really do and would seem should i mean i. I understood the words. But i couldn't make sense out of the meaning behind the words warmly. What happens is when you ask somebody to repeat what has been set or either. It's a question or just the conversation. We have tendency to repeat the exact same faith which was exactly what i didn't stand the so after a couple of times saying enough you repeat by realizing that i was getting anywhere with the answer and still not understanding what was being asked. I just stopped asking questions. And i really felt that the problem with me And i thought. I understood english. But i can't realize maybe i don't maybe there's maybe i still have issues. And it really did impact me for for several years in terms of being able to participate in conversations or being able to speak up to the point that you know might myself. Confidence in some cases really hindered from bad experience. Because now i doubted what i was saying and even writing adapt and i realized that some of the words that i was using maybe did not have the the you know. They were expressing what i was trying to say or they were just stood in a different way so it really had a an important impacted my confidence in in wade performance in some cases. Now i've come to overcome the adding to ask it in a different way to to look at things and overcome those language areas and and use different tools helped me for those first years. It was very very difficult realizing what you thought you do. You really did write your weight. I don't know what i'm doing here. Ileana was just a matter of of time passing and you just getting more and more used to what people were saying and the culture or did you like you use any special tips or tricks that helped you raise your self confidence. It's been a little bit of both on the one hand. I definitely lean on different tools being allah and different platforms not helped me from a grammar perspective. Yeah all of that. So i thought i definitely use and then just in general i think i. I don't more confidence in asking people and how to ask questions to make sure that what i'm saying is being understood on the one and then on the other when i don't understand some to to have that confidence to ask the question of samuel i really am not clear. Can i play back to you to see if what i'm seeing and you're asking you what's happening because before i would just like no question but i did have built that but confidence to ask those questions on feeling but i was. I was wrong or that. I was last or you know all those south at south talk aging. That makes you feel less than somebody else. Yeah and so everyone listening. I think a big takeaway here. You might be listening. And they while you know i i've born and bred in the us or never been to another country's this doesn't apply. I think it absolutely applies because it's about beyond language about asking the question having the confidence fast a son so that could be moving into a new organization. And it's a new organizational culture. It doesn't have to be a new culture and country. I think in the question is just so important. So having the bravery to ask the question one thing that i do with my nine year old and i see it with other parents and here i'm not i'm not here to judge. I'm not perfect mother or perfect leader in any way shape or form but one thing i noticed. Is that parents and i've done. This too will have a tendency to speak for. Speak for their kids before you know. Let's talk about girls here. And they'll like order for them or they'll ask a question for them a helicopter parent for them in with my daughter. I'm trying really hard. She'll look at me and she said well you ask the question you know you help me with the order at the restaurant and i'm like no you have the question. You have to be confident enough to ask. Because i'm not always gonna be there to help you get the answer so i really appreciate you sharing that inside and that learning ileana answer. You're absolutely right in the approach and in the tax on we have to change countries or being a different place where they speak a different language to still have these communication barriers. So you mentioned. I think a key point but you know you were an executive of you. Move to the us for blow role and even bigger role probably third juicier and more fighting and then your it sounds like okay like six seven years. Then you get to this point of disillusionment. I love you to share. You know when did it become just like a job because you know like well i you know job is fine. You know. and that's great now. I want a career. And i think that you wanted to fulfil your passion so i think that. Let's kind of unpack that the first question is when did it become just for job for you. What were the kind of tying..

She's now part of the medical scientist training program at stanford and like the rest of us. She's an ardent advocate for the cause. And i absolutely wanted to have her on with us. Also as an aside even though she's interested in the neuro sciences. She said that she says sponge and definitely open to the possibility of doing cardiology. So it was wonderful to have you here karen. This is our chance pablo. I'm i'm taking the shot. i'm not missing. I will take another shot. I will say that. At brigham and women's hospital. There is an interesting thing that happens on occasion we have preliminary neurology interns and for some reason. They magically get converted into cardiologists. So one of my co chief residents actor amy miller who was such a neurology pre limb back in the day switched from not only just pre limb but to a catechal residency and then actually went on to become a co chief. Residents of cardiology bilo ended electrophysiology. Both those comments. I think there still is hope for us to recruit karen to our side for south. Thank you so much for not very warm introduction pablo it truly a such an honor to be here and to be with all of you and to just i. Just feel so inspired. We're actually doing our cardio block right now. Medical skull so this has become my new favorite buck rapid interpretation and finding a lot of similarities between the neuronal potential and the cardiac one. We have gap junctions neurologist. Synapses we have gap junctions. So i guess soccer still doing it at first question i wanted to ask is what was the moment. We decided that you could or would go and become a cardiologist. Is a great question. So i think i. I became interested in cardiology as an undergraduate. Were i took a preventive cardiology course and it was just. I found it very interesting. I it was my senior year. I took it. And i think i would s- pass innate by the public health aspects of cardiovascular disease and how important of an illness that was in our country sort of left it aside and then a right now where you are i was taking my cardiovascular pathophysiology course i really just fell in love with the elegant. The heart as a pump and with low through tubes through the vessels been smooth muscles and relaxation and the elegance of the cascades that were were occurring on the cellular level. And how could see it feel it. Not that there's anything wrong with kidney. I love the kidney. We couldn't use diuretics without it. But i just something about being able to see in much aspects of the cardiovascular system i think from an intellectual standpoint was when i became interested when i thought i could him later that came after i met folks at brigham and women's hospital and saw people that looked like me as cardiologists. And maybe i had steamed some on colleges. That would have been an oncologist instead. But i met some incredible cardiologists that you may know. So david aggie loud.
