"Art. I mean I, don't know maybe some people like do some people like tape these to the wall, so they walk in and the first thing they see every night is their collection of box art on their games like I. Don't get it I. Don't know why anybody would care. It's just a box I see I see the becks of games, but that's it there. I mean they're. There yeah. New World Delayed to twenty twenty one what? That's actually news so new world pretty rough. A lot of people doing the Beta loose attend. Who Hates? Everything hated it and he was. Now? And he was saying it was really rough, and we were trying to figure out why it was planned for this for this year, but it looks like it was delayed and I. Think if it was delayed. That's the best. Oh there, we go! Yeah, I said delayed. It is delayed delayed again now coming spring, twenty, twenty one. A, thank you very much guy days. Nice talking to you on twitter to the way. I think that that makes sense and I hope we see more games. Do this guys. If you feel like you can like, you are vested in some game in that you you know. You. Have some control over when they release. You're wrong. You know. Let them delay. Let him delay, let them work on it. That game is in rough shape already already been changed. What one two three times? A giant parts of it have been changed I think this is fine. Let's see what we can get out of. It I must on those all the published other game, the crucible and unpublished again they're doing. The all perfect name, because if you look at the crucible, means it really. It, so it's like literally example no, not only that, but if if usually at least I if I think Roosevelt's immediately, that's the. If, you search for. Gaming it the right now. I was just saying. It's funny that the title of the game is what it's going through right now. It's very own crucible. It's it's. Going through its title but yeah bad name right like it is just too much. It's too tied into something else. We were talking about that. I think on Matty's. Maybe we talked about on here, but I was like quick naming your game and nine right or like. Before with the four, I can't remember if we talked about on this one. Make it easy for people to search it like that's super important. Yeah, today's Day and age it like if you're indie developer I would tell you make it so that a youtuber can type it incorrectly, too. I mean as their title. Because if you don't, they're the ones who are GONNA marketing your game in the future. You GotTa make sure that you play the game when it comes to titling and remove war. Shadow! Tactics war shadow and. Just in general, the preposition of removal of we're not allowed to have of in our game anymore. Do that do that. You're making me happy. Sky Days is gifting to subs. Thank you very much sky days. Glad to have you here. So that is PS. Five super important done talking about the box art. Also, Some extreme to new world as I was flying. those who preordered. Or signed up for the BETA. Beta will still get excess for limited time to the original launch date so August twenty fifth. You'll still be able to sample. What the current status Al, then probably agree that it was a good idea. That's actually that's A. that's cool. I didn't know that they were doing that that circle. So I Let's see the questions down here podcasts. I've got podcasts questions on twitter. We'll go through them first and then we'll jump into. A bunch, we still have a bunch of stuff to talk over so I'm just going to do some of these Gilbey. Says expect Microsoft to take a large hit on series, X. and especially lockhart price in order to boost market reach. Prowling all the series. I mean Microsoft's business is. Pretty much subscription based yeah. So. It would make more sense for them to maybe sale at. Properties Zero Prophet I. Don't think they'd go into negative. Territory makes you don't think that makes a lot of sense to do that, nope? Malevolent monkey in the unlikely event PS five in Xbox Ver- released versions of Sky Rim, we'll fix the bugs. No will move on from there. That was a weird question. No. Christopher says how do you feel about the rumors and patents? Pertaining to PSI backwards compatibility rumor, has it that is cloud based. And I'm thinking true. They'll definitely use the xbox your technology. Nobody seems to speak about as your. Though that's because you're isn't really cool thing to talk about. It's like we said. We said ten cents by war frame. We didn't say ten cents by the Chinese company that owns were frame because that's not a frame of reference people no. I don't think anybody cares about as you're as much as care about how they're doing it I will say this. No I won't. Yes I will hang on. Let me think what I can get away with. My experience was streaming games both NDA not indie aid in the last. Two months has been terrible. And I can tell you right now. If backwards compatibility is based around a streaming technology. You're fucked..

I mean we talk about this stuff a lot I think. If you play the right ones they do, but I think. It's interesting. Yeah, go ahead, Johnny? What's interesting there is. I don't think there's a clear connection like positive or negative between playing games, and like a good mental health situation. Because I think it can go either way right it's.

No. Direct connection, but I think that people. Like you said it's a to I think one of the big issues that happens with games. Is You also don't know what you're GONNA. Get in I, mean imagine thinking you want to jump into a fucking game to be positive and turns out to have like some horrible connotation. You didn't expect, and then you're now worse off. It's almost like. You know listening to depressive music when you're depressed. Does it help some people? It feel it helps. Some people feel that Myers Amorin.

"With all the backing from Microsoft and all the momentum they put behind it events all that shit. They couldn't make it work. Do we think that tencent let alone any other like smaller startups that were seeing for streaming services are going to even make a dent. And get into the streaming space in any real way to compete with the big boys I don't know if registries but I think the reason why facebook gaming is succeeded is because it's facebook and they are. They were already vested social interest where Microsoft and mixer was mixed. Remember when they bought mixer. People are like why because nobody had even heard of the company prior to mixer and then. Then, they changed their name to mixer. So it's sort of like buying that failed thing and hoping somebody cares and most people didn't get. They were like, but that's my phone. Yeah, also also micro, says history of that I mean we have stuff like the soon the windows phones they all try to have minors and put a lot of money and time into it and still failed horribly. So? I think that's just Microsoft's that stay. They have a couple of progress that are super successful, but every time they tried to enter market. That's not within their sphere of come forward. It seems to fail. And I think tencent has a better option of success. We've in China obviously because that's where dominance and if they manage to get a message from there, and then I think it's much easier to expand. Interesting thing with facebook. Sorry, NO GOPHER! Do you want to? I just want to say like with facebook. Most people have like easily a hundred distant relatives or like random people that. Follow them or whatever whatever the term haven't used facebook in two years. But like if you start streaming, they're all of a sudden you know like. Your Grandmother Your Brazil. Is like Oh you know Janis. So I'm going to check it out. Whereas in any other platform, there's always that step of like. Growing an audience getting people to find you and facebook almost built in in some way that might help like New People. Getting started no I. Agree do look at Youtube. I jumped youtube to twitched. There was no I mean other than those people I. Could you know? Get kicking inclined to come over every almost every person for Youtube is had a very difficult time coming to twitch, and there's a reason because those audiences don't mix their information. The now youtube purposely will make it so that you don't know. Somebody's on twitch, remember in the old days. They'd be like persons on twitter. Go Watch him now. It's like man. You're not allowed to put any of that. They remove any ability for you to do that. kind of stuff with with with facebook I personally know most of my friends who have even an old facebook account would already have more people watching them stream on facebook than they've ever had on twitch. Just by the sheer amount of people who are in their friends, list and friends of friends lists, so it makes sense for a smaller person who's like only hidden. You know a couple dozen to be like well Shipman. Maybe I'll check facebook because I see those couple dozen haven't grown on twitch. Let's let's see if I can get him on both and twitch also. Has that tendency of saying you can't stream anywhere else? FACEBOOK's like you can stream wherever you want youtube. You can stream wherever you want We'll see how ten cent works. I'm assuming ten cents a bunch of people down into very specific things. You know who did it. Look at their website of what they have. Currently and top streams are all mobile stuff. That's another leave like yeah, you. It's all mobile. That's mental. The top top as I think mobile, and then you have t mobile et Cetera, so they're. Very much on the mobile sector currently. Isn't streaming mobile, exactly opposite of mobile like 'cause. Wouldn't she usually be sitting to stream it and not moving anywhere like you're not on the train like just literally. Literally not yeah in I. Know a lot of people scream from android emulators. So it's even doubling not so it's like I'm going to get this emulated game and I'm going to crank it up and then plotted the even the even the half their on android emulator where you can play their mobile games. On, PC. Yes so weird! But Hey. You know what I play a lot of mobile games now. There's a couple that are fucking awesome so okay, but they're not call of duty like that's. About a star Rangers, couple RPG's and you know those kind of things fucking phenomenal games. There's a couple that I wish came to pc because like I. See him and I'm like Oh my God. If graphics on this, were you know like imagine what you can do but. Well interesting stuff, I, don't know I don't think any of us really care in the long run. Were I mean in I-? I'll be surprised if we're all here. In ten years the way the world's going. I mean it just feels like every day I. Wake up and I'd like closed. The News Tabs quick as possible because I'm like. I just don't want to read that she'll be here. I have to be alive for part for the final part of final fantasy seven remake. They said ten months. Yeah. Thank. You know let's talk about something. Let's this is I'm glad you brought that up. Because I was in the Shitter, which is where a lot of your best Bankin and I was like that the truth ain't that the truth? There's been a lot of big games in. People are going to disagree on this, but I think there hasn't been a big so last of us do you could consider a media event, but I don't think it was about. The game is about the message and people's reaction to the message of the message, and then people's reaction to the reactors of the message. So. They're a lot of games have come out. Imagine this. When we first started some of these games that we were excited about, we hadn't even known about. Final fantasy seven, which I was always telling Johnny wasn't gonNA come out right. And it's out. You have all of these game. cyberpunk is now going to be I. consider it the last of the grandfathered games. I was looking at this last night going. Do we have any games? To wear the excitement and the Almighty, God. Is, is out there and hasn't been answered yet. And the only one that I can think of is cyberpunk now. All the other games have been answered well as she. Shema comes up and I don't think that's at near the level of last of US know. Is there any title that you that I'm forgetting? That's on this that God of like of true excitement or true. Yeah elden ring, but that's still very far off. We don't know anything about that yet. Yeah, and it's not a dark souls. Like if it was called dark souls for I think the idea I think. These, that exact would be different. Too, but we can say we could say we can save elden ring. Because elderly those games are sort of in that tight. Tight genres. Sky Room we haven't even heard of a new Sky Room so like I'm not gonNA. Put that on the list. like that I. Mean Oh yeah. I mean they would start film zone this out. I was GONNA say star field, I mean. There's star fields overriding can cool and yeah. John Fund we got want star citizens. I you know Star citizen I could go with I. Guess because but see I'm sort of thinking more along the lines of the game, and not the discussion around the game, because a lot of people, no matter how good star citizen is, they're going to do the same thing people do. When they talk about Microsoft or Sony or Nintendo the hold onto some old preconceived thing. They'll be like. Oh, well. They should have been out ten years earlier if the game. Game is amazing. You'll be like twenty out of ten. They'll be like shit out earlier, and that's like the end of their discussion, so I'm talking about like just sheer excitement..

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World video game re-release teased

"Scott Pilgrim video game might be making a return. There was a lot of Scott Pilgrim. Talk on the Internet yesterday as the director of the film Edgar Right and the cast watched the movie insured commentary on twitter which is Great. Because it's a great movie and Edgar. Wright is one of my favorite directors but in terms of video games. There was another little interesting tease Bryan. Lee o'malley the author of the Scott Pilgrim Comic Book that inspired the film tweeted. Bring back the Scott Pilgrim game. Hashtag bring back the Scott Pilgrim game. Hashtag watch with the academy. Which is a necessary tweet to share because the game was delisted a few years after its release it was delisted in two thousand fourteen. As far as I know it's not a game that can be purchased on any of its original platforms and it has never been entirely clear why the game was delisted but it likely had something to do with rights debates as you know it is a licensed game after all in response to o'malley's tweet the official UBISOFT. Twitter account responded with a thoughtful face emoji which many are reading into Ubisoft considering bringing the game back online the game was developed and published by Ubisoft. So if anyone was gonna be able to bring it back it would be them. I actually reviewed that game back in my pre game informer freelance days and here is my potentially controversial opinion. The game soundtrack which was created by chip tune ban on Gucci is much better than the actual game. The music is absolutely fantastic. The Art Style and animation is good but the game itself I just. I didn't think it was Super Fun to play. Now that being said I would still very much like to see that game comeback to life. It's always a bummer. When any game gets delisted in anything we can do to help elevate. Scott Pilgrim is a thing that comics are in. The movie is fantastic. So more Scott Pilgrim in the world is a good

"Or tech giant Tencent reports earnings in the coming week the works of the prisoner and Brian Curtis are standing by with more Bob Tencent holdings is reporting earnings next weekend may provide a degree of hope that some firms are managing well through the crisis Bloomberg intelligence says the ten cent is likely to report strong fourth quarter sales and profit growth as it expands gaming fintech and social ad businesses then I thought we'd take a look at this entire area with Bloomberg's face turned laying to get some insights into ten cent and others and how they are managing through the coronavirus survey thanks very much for joining us now we had some warnings already from companies like Ali Baba and JD dot com and we had been told or with its earnings missing estimates contents sent bucked the trend yeah Brian I think we we got to recognize that the the quarter data reporting is the fourth quarter right and that's really before the virus outbreak started in January so I think fourth quarter results probably going to be intact groove is robust online games is recovering from the regular tree set back in twenty eighteen at stake spending so all's good right but what the market will really be looking for is any form of guidance into what the first quarter's going to look like and we've seen data that suggests that the show online services such as online games online video who work from home software cloud computing stuff like that has actually seen increased usage imprint the penetration with the outbreak in January and February physical businesses e-commerce foot delivery these things have obviously seen a lot of disruption because of travel restrictions and and logistics disruptions and so on so in terms of what the market had been discounting for the first quarter considering the fact that the lunar new year holiday was a major component in that especially working E. commerce is related does there have to be a major re thinking now in terms of earnings expectations I think a lot of fun it has been priced in worship places that obviously in the loss a couple of weeks being the not doing too well full China internet companies so we've seen reports coming out from the likes of Ali Baba VIP shopping portal and JD suggesting that there will be a fairly significant sales contraction in the first quarter the upside is most of these companies are now saying that the increase penetration the accelerated user adoption is probably going to benefit them down the road when the epidemic subside so that it is difficult to quantify and I don't think a lot of consensus numbers have that in yet you think that this would put a lot of pressure on these companies to control their costs or in the case of ten cent do you think they're doing so this Stenson and I would see the entire time to eat internet space in general has been curtailing costs expansion in the loss a year and that actually has been driven in part by the trade war with the U. S. macroeconomic concerns so people have been tightening their belts already and with this virus outbreak impacting sales in the coming quarters all to it's likely to cost controls will heighten having said that a lot of these companies E. commerce companies for example Ali Baba and people don't have been put in place to support measures for the merchants and they use US subsidies to promote more spending by the users weaving commissions from merchants especially for delivery companies like me tons of these things put up her the bottom line right at least for the next one to two quarters yeah and maybe that will show up in the equity price action but I'm concerned about the credit side of the equation to particularly as we given all the stresses that we're been talking about in financial markets see credit spreads to a white now to bid it mean if you look at the bonds Ian and ten cents for example how have they been trading in is there a lot of concern on the credit side of the ledger I think the for this particular space all the companies are basically that cash and the the highly cash flow generate if every quarter even with a sales decline of fifteen to twenty percent in the coming quarters it is quite likely that the cash flows will be positive so I I'm not too concerned about the bonds that that Tencent Alibaba Baidu and

Magic Johnson Nolan Ryan and Warrick Dunne are among those who at one time co own the teams they once played for then there's Michael Jordan and Carolina David Beckham. Who's Inter- MIAMI. Mls team just began. Play this year and Lebron James who owns a piece of Liverpool in the English premier league who are among other athletes who have become owners. Then there's Victor Martinez a five time all star catcher and designated hitter primarily with the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers. He decided on ownership to and now. He has a chance to win his sports. Ultimate prize shot pin Geir Mo going after the leaders and goes tencent on the outside and Paco Lopez sets him down for the driving. He's picking up versus one by one but meanwhile upfront at fifty to one of King Gary Mode now going to aid. Here's pink derm O- on the outside trying to follow your gut. Said Chan said is home on the outside inside the final furlong. Do you believe this king at forty nine to one. He doesn't just want it. He wins it off in press. I cannot think of a former professional athlete. Who owned or co owned a Kentucky Derby winner? Maybe you can. Please let me know but Victor Martinez has a chance to be something of a trailblazer and we are fortunate enough to welcome Victor Martinez for the First Time. Here to investigate. What was it like for you that day? It was crazy it was crazy man with a lot of stuff that we were just praying that you know he likes the door he likes the dirt and then you know I remember having my wife be right beside on my right and You know the final stretch. She kids saying we won. We won and I was like no. You know we still. It's still a race to go super race to go. And she was like we weren't we weren't and then we. I think we're the only people in the race track that was jumping and screaming because he was forty nine to one You know we have gone through a you know a lot of stuff with him. You know special. Because what he's made he's He's debut he may He's view in fighting. Hafer loans on dirt right so you know He. He came out of the big favourite of the race. You know because of these workers stuffing You know it was a fourteen horse. Feel and he ended up seeks to raise so it was Kinda. You know disappointed but we were happy. I mean as a family have my whole family there. We'll have a great time and that was what it's all about. I was I was trying to do that to have with my family but you know I remember the trainer. One Carlos was very very disappointed about his performance. He was you know what I'm saying. I'm sorry I don't know what happened. That was like don't worry about it. I mean we have a great time. You know we have a lot of people came to us and say that king a year is a terrific guy. He got a racer grass so well we decided to give him a chance on on on turf grass and we put him on a mile rate. You got a king gear. Mouse can gear midway on. The turn is opened up. A six length advantage gear comes into the stretch with a seven length. Lead Kozel Listrik Joe. Second third but king who they gotta catch can gear ball popular. Victory here can gear them out by about eight legs so we were like okay. I think he he liked turfing. You know we put him on another race. These these time was the steak then. He came third. So you know He. He lost the race in the final four lawn. Something like that and You know he he make another another big race but I still have my dream united. See how my dream from like my Kentucky Derby horsing. I told the trainer one time I told him Carl listen. I think he deserved one. More shot on dirt. So let's put him on one more time and but Lisa he's not gonNA raise any those leader races. Let's put him on a raise. That point to the Kentucky and he looked at me and he was agreed. We put him on the temporary. We you know we went out there to try. Try Him on again. And then we came out with spider it every now you talked about your trainer Juan Carlos Ave line. You're rider Sammy. Camacho are not that well known on the national thoroughbred racing scene they like you are Venezuelan. Had you thought about going with a more well-established trainer and rider to prepare for the Kentucky? Derby Nope nope they put him in the Kentucky every day going with him to the Kentucky Derby. That's how it works for me.

How coronavirus may slow the internet

"Well more and more companies telling workers to work from home if they can Tuesday Google advised all of its North American workers not just workers in San Francisco and Seattle that all North American workers to work from home until at least April tenth. Fortune reported that about twenty. Nine percent of the workforce could work from home in other words. The bus driver can't work from home has to be on the bus. That kind of thing but twenty nine percent of the. Us workforce could work from home. That's about forty two million people and to that schools either shutting down or going to remote classes means a lot more students of all ages college students as well possibly working from home if they're not in the dorms for instance. That's a lot more people on home. Internet then your. Isp is used to especially during the day. At and T. And Verizon told fortune that the fiber optic cable that provides the. Isp's back haul should be fine. The volume of traffic isn't expected to change too much. They'll be more video conferencing and such but they expect that the pattern of change will be the bigger problem. The traffic will be coming from homes. Not Offices one network insider told a lot of packets will go in odd directions with odd routes and people won't be able to address issues quickly enough it won't break but get ready for a ride This is a some people who live in snow areas no on snow days. Suddenly the Internet does and always work is consistently. Because everybody's trying to use it at the same time. Imagine that on nationwide levels. The chokepoints are lower bandwidth cable and copper wire services your corporate network trying to handle all that increased. Vpn traffic also companies need to find out workers at home have sufficient bandwidth and be prepared to invest in things like mobile hotspots and temporarily maybe subsidizing increasing their data plans. Of course your home Wifi network. You're not a Wifi. Six in most cases You don't have that increased capacity of suddenly all. The students are home your home. Everybody's working from home. You're overloading that WIFI network. Because more devices are using it at once as I mentioned video already estimated to be about seventy percent of network traffic already. And we're GONNA have more video conferences so that puts a little more strain on the system and don't forget apps themselves. The Internet society notes that individual tools need to provision sufficient compute storage and bandwidth resources to deal with increased users. Yes zoom wants everybody to use zoom for the video conferencing but zoom better. Make sure that they've got enough bandwith and cloud resources to handle that. They have but any kind of APP you're using from home. We'll need to prepare for that. We have a test case. China has gone through this by streaming service and educational options application called sway. Si-tong popular office applications including video conferencing applications Ding talk and we chat work online games from tencent. All reportedly crashed at one time or another due to all the increased traffic of people using them from home.

"This wall virus thing I don't know I think there's something going on here so ten cents late Saturday evening their web page other web page titled epidemic situation tracker are calling an epidemic showed confirmed cases of the current of ours by the name by the way the name is novel coronavirus it's in C. O. V. E. in China they showed it standing at one hundred and fifty four thousand twenty three confirmed cases that is ten times the official figure at the time graver tracker I guess is is kind of like the national debt tracker that they have a New York times where the rational debt this is the corona virus tracker and they have numbers infected numbers are you know we cover the numbers dad and it just keeps checking up except in China where it takes up then all of a sudden it goes down again and then it goes up and there goes down again so they had they had the number infected it over a hundred fifty four thousand ten times official figure and it listed the number of suspected cases that almost eighty thousand which is four times the official figure the number of cure cured cases two hundred and sixty nine well below the official number that day of three hundred and the death toll was listed at almost twenty five thousand the official death toll on February first was three hundred what and just a couple of just couple seconds later ten cent updated the numbers because it's a live tracker ha to reflect the government's official numbers for that day so everyone is now wondering did ten cent I accidentally put the real numbers out there and then say whoops and then correct them or is of course like conspiracy theories is there someone who's trying to get the real numbers out maybe I mean the tents and as you know you got to think about this right like the government is feeding ten cent the numbers to begin with so you think they'd feed them the authentic number in and another like don't tell anyone here's the here's a fake number we want you to publish may be I mean they they the the end game here is China is difficult to believe China is obviously deceptive on a whole bunch of things I'd be pretty surprised if the mistake on the website why is it the revelation of the genuine authentic numbers twenty five thousand people dead versus just around three hundred I mean it's a huge job but one way or the other if this does this is a good way for us to remind ourselves yet China's deceptive and we should be careful about that especially when it comes to a global health crisis well some say that the it could've been a coding problem that could be causing the real internal data to accidentally appear but everybody seems to think that that's the real internal data they do say that the internal data help help by Beijing may not reflect the true true extent of this epidemic because many corona virus patients are unable to receive treatment and a lot of them are dying outside of hospitals so no one truly knows how many are dying from the virus verses just dying right you know nobody really knows in a severe shortage of test kits is also leading to a lower number of diagnosed cases of infection of coronavirus virus and there and death but it does seem that they're a lot more people dying from this the weather let nine that they're being did being deceptive about the actual that you know I I we've been to in the beginning of this we were told it's like it was just a flu it's like anything else and you know the thousands of people die from the flu each year around the globe which is absolutely true and this death toll whatever the true number happens to be so far we're not it like people who just die from the flu every year right when you say all this that all adds up to like and I I realized other people had to stop it looks like it's some sort of Chernobyl thank you did not like they're not letting on what's actually going on that there's this global health crisis on its way in the country can't contain it by itself and they don't want the Americans to really get in there and help because that would reveal how deeply screwed up the whole thing is it's very very chill not Chernobyl again it is but it but it that's a word but it also kind of belies the light of it came from too many people eat batsuit really people in in China or in bad seed now now I'm starting to wonder re much don't think that that's where this started after you're skeptical of everything is it really called coronavirus let's be clear me skeptical on this one how many people again how many people in China eight infected that soup that you know thousands are dying right and don't you think that when she got the recall on the batsuit that you would have thrown out all your cans of it or however it comes packaged I'm not quite sure how how backed soup is package but don't you think you know you would do a most people doing go there's been a recall and you either take it back to the store or you throw it out who says let's give it a shot nobody right I don't know I do I'm just not buying very

"Extinction billion has a remarkable organized structure but it is basically a massive lines of affinity groups with and demands and the universal commitment to nonviolence one group had the idea to delay a commuter train accounting town in East London violence flat on a protest was dragged off the roof of the train and settled on commuters the BBC was criticized for integrating commuters interviewing police but not talking to testers this action led to much soul searching in extinction rebellion in criticism of the action why block public transport went public transport is a green alternative why block commutes an area of London where people may be online ages zero hours contracts and a likely to lose disproportionately forbade late for work the counting town incident was one the few the goat full media coverage Nora Cox traveled from your to be part of the London rebellion she told me why Laura welcome and thanks for talking to these sustainable futures report so I believe you're a journalist and you decided that your place was at the rebellion in London at the beginning of October did you for the whole week two weeks I was any night that I stopped of the at the International Rene decidedly due to relief reasons by too much time today right and how'd you been on any sort of protest light not before it done small actions in York in the past but they were by no means as Intense Exchange in London it was this the same theme extinction rebellion in different course same I've been involved for about six months now the school strikes and things like that yes yes won't quite big so you decided to go to London what did you expect the process to achieve I expected the protests to achieve publicity ultimately that is the number one aim right now because in order to take action into have recognition and at the moment none of us in exon including myself we see as a problem recognition and paying instead of actually entitled rising Helga things all so did you think that it would build on the reaction Easter I hoped it would hayward how will you actually done that full life on Sunday night And I was that Monday Monday's Dan my rusty often in that arrest arrested on Monday Monday on the first day at three and fourteen because I was there around abolished uh-huh yeah I believe we met actually briefly taught us how this happened when I met you yes he was sitting in the middle of millbank and of people and everything was was very sort of relaxed there weren't that many police around old out later on in the afternoon the numbers did increase a lot so how did it affect you when she saw from the morning it was quite a quiet and there was no great antagonising going on but the problem was the people divers in the road with excluding a handful of others want as we head spiky anything turnabout in despite yet you on the mold waiting Yanti agitate basically and that was that was not the same level of spiking as across that said we would come 'cause we get through the right bulk of wouldn't say for example ambulance during which we all agreed to do next let the ambulance through for all these reasons but then we wouldn't ask him police call street because they had blue emergency lights on which anybody's cocker put the Blue Emergency Light Song Yang to question whether or not that's genuine a few of us were getting quite no no annoy that just wasn't occasion of tactics that roadblock and all day we did manage to hold the road for what it was quite frustrating because wasn't really functioning that well so not as far as that would have been in arrestable situation had everybody banded together and bidden same level of quite quite spiking for few hours eventually police attitude as she say code lasts no more more more more more and they were actually pushing a star either side kind of cooling in on male by tents inventories take down and then we told told back we realize some time now we can put it back again and while other groups and other sites distracting the police that was odd jobs do put up some infrastructure but of course we couldn't get any infrastructure up because things have already being compensated taking away and already lots of police people there so you yeah it was quite difficult situation couldn't foods a food Tent or kitchen or welcome tent to we just had the actual tencent sleeping and I was actually arrested later on the afternoon by not moving from attacked he didn't move I wasn't at hand I didn't move right because earlier on my soul the police talking to people and saying to them you know a few go away will leave you alone but if you don't move gone to arrest you so will you given the opportunity to come out of the tension walk away or multiple times giving up until you were postage I was I was trying to event and I was taken to Croydon Custody Santa where I spent e the evening gene and the morning Tonto they release you nearly free at around eleven. Am they're about seven and the previous evening and have you been charged I have been released under instigation so I haven't been charged but there is every likelihood that I will be charged it just depends on how this guy is obviously not more arrested in time so they obviously let's move chance that we may not get charged but I feel like if you go to pick yourself arrestable position unique to accepted that that is the reality many it's probably happened did you expect that you would be arrested when you actually set off for London yes I'd had training I've taken uh-huh nonviolent direct action NBD trainings that I was prepared for that to happen I feel like at someone you identity dependence the D. B. S. check by needs keithly no-one relies on me I'm very independent I am sort of textbook arrestable as as far as people go Marshall Civility to put myself forward for that to be it needs to winning that happens oh you didn't so you are what do you think that this autumn rebellion has achieved I hate that it achieved more publicity and I would really have been why would I know that has led to is to started we'll conversations around this topic I can speak to people now they know succinct That's the whole point because as I said before you need to acknowledge before you can and it's the starting these conversations the most important thing and when you go out of people on the street outside Westminster that will not go away that's how you start the conversation as annoying it's difficult is that may be it's we have to start talking about the con- ignore anymore when extra me well we have a few shoots planned in Newark obviously nowhere near the scale of what went on in London obviously weighed indexing rebounding very casual that we don't we use the burn out because he puts so much energy you put yourself wholeheartedly into these things in it can be very taxing individuals we try to be very mind full of people's well-being net will help physical help so now we're having a bit of a breather that we're going to gather all shuttles height for comeback with something else I would like to see is more community engagement I think it's obviously you talked earlier about the canning town fiasco idea but he typically when you have affinity groups acting completely there are a coach and ten public opinion in the world action because reading we should be working together and not so we need to do in extinction rebounding is to build movement rather than constantly be pushing and pushing and pushing we need to be having conversations on one to one level with people which is what I'm an advocate for

China & the NBA

"The conflict with China escalating today the US adding some more companies now it's blacklists in China scrapping the broadcast of NBA Games over the Houston Rockets GM tweet which we talked a lot about yesterday yesterday we filled you in on the surprising feud between the NBA in China to recap last Friday Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey tweeted in support of the Hong Kong antigovernment protesters which quickly prompted backlash in China the NBA released a statement condemning the tweet which Maury has since deleted then yesterday NBA Commissioner Adam silver defended Moore's right to free speech in an interview in Tokyo and then there's the financial fallout to the business of Basketball Chinese state media CCTV and tech giant tencent which owns the digital streaming rights for the NBA in China suspended broadcast of NBA Games they're Chinese smartphone maker Vivo is putting its partnership with the League on ice and the term Houston Rockets is no longer searchable on China's lard just shopping sites Alibaba and JD DOT COM squawk continues to follow this story closely here's the latest from our reporter Unit Hyun in Beijing Foreign Ministry today a kind of gave a hint probably about how they feel about the US's involvement or at least the NBA's comments about Hong Kong in a statement it said about a completely different subject and that is the the US Commerce Department's decision to expand the blacklist of four some of the Chinese he's firms because of the Muslim population in the Far West essentially China said the US should stop interfering in Chinese affairs there's in other words they want the trump administration and the US more broadly to but out of their business guys hey very quickly just in the last ten minutes or so Adam silver has made some comments you mentioned that he's in Asia he's trying to take this on and it's a delicate dance he said first of all we'd like those to the NBA connected to the NBA to be sent live to other people's cultures he said we regret that we have upset millions and millions of fans but obviously trying to walk a fine line he's also saying he's not apologizing for Houston general manager reciting his freedom of expression huge issue because obviously an American league but in China they have a believe double the number of fans that there are in just in terms of people of the United States something like six hundred million fans are more in China and so it's obviously a huge market for them but try to walk a pretty fine line with some of these comments that he's he's coming out with this morning yeah that's right and I think it's a fine line that the NBA has to walk and Chinese companies as well because right after ten cent made that announcement that they were going to cut ties or suspend ties with the NBA there was a lot of discussion online here about how ten cents had just recently inked a very huge deal to get the rights I mean some people were saying like one point five billion dollars that hasn't been confirmed for five year deal to air NBA Games and the most cut like the the the comment that that you could see the most is that insent decided to choose life instead of money and that was kind of a hint that a lot of companies if you want to do business in China you have to fall in line with what Beijing wants

"For today's session we are here on Nylander which China Correspondent Award winning author of Shenzhen a so great reading and join these joining us from on Congress to the end. It's pleasure to have you with us. Thank you so much for inviting. It's great to be on the show yeah absolutely and the of course a was an amazing greeting. Anyone strength understand what's happening right now. I think in China and why he's going to be so important for the global economy. I think it's a it's a master read. Let's that from your wardrobe to was what was actually because you you stopped. It boggles on on that. When you know we wouldn't have yet the superstars that we have today yeah well. I can explain why became suppressant in the city of when I moved with my family to Oklahoma eight years ago back then remember my new friend. Sid used to warn us about transcendent. Don't go there. It's dirty. It's a joke to pollute effects with tons dangerous. You Trust the border and steal your kidney lung cancer and I thought wow sounds ons exciting so assaulted tramping there on the North End. I realized that my friends among the it it will grow about the city but not real exciting things happening. They're just way more defend looks like when people in Hong Kong realized and and especially when it came to the text off times over the years and more more regularly when a student stories stories for international ups the technology seen in China under off to avail license. Mike is suited the epicenter of the world into specially hardware and integration between Audrey of all. I have to talk order about this are up. It's simple yet inches. Of course let's let's stretch it from from the end and I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA ask soccer creepy but he's with him and he's a Silicon Valley in travel now the Shenton he's a he's really becoming also important is actually be important that I would not say that supervise think if indicates sex developments of hardware-software associate more like older boats arresting that really clever people in Chanson really ten Aviv Tokyo of what I see that everybody's everybody's gaining from Mall grits slugger action then the second touch that's CPR abundant how some no tremendous advantages. They're really really really for the software software development. Is this development branding getting close strengthen chest send us is from sexually talk back and and I think when the grinches happening to takes this violent emergence with string stuff I'll translate them in the it off so I think both of them and if it's leverage yup absolutely and of course if a few get to the softer tower of this illegal violin I guess combining the hardware our of Johnson and the release of what you call the faster further diving. I think it can be rea- very our for combination but Shenton so far as being really about the hardware but them you'll see expected to logos the more and more in software at Breda network yet. I mean as we said a transcendent south China is famous for hardware comes from both sexual wrote that Munger factoring but then you have confidence that ten cents tencent is as no the world's biggest Jamie It's also the company behind as we shocked at a we shut off this you could say it's the apple APPS. It's one of the most interesting into companies the want right now and that's a hundred percent sub-strategic sues so you also have a trend in software wonder and a newborn expecting softer products coming up a show for America. Yep and in your experience as you've been covering quite some time Shinsen a wendy the the rise of of what we're reading things that make it up in some way you mean window You mean just sixty yeah more like Shinsen is a sea by also courses Benami like that something eh like an article was eastern yeah so the the story by the city's tremendously facet is also screwing. I mean the store's been told until the end forty two years ago it was it was nothing barry except from rice fee small fishing bitches today is up to twenty million people in some of the biggest technology companies on the parents. I don't happen because chance and was the first the first region but you could do to trade free more free in China was the first academic the experiments and it really kicks. I will factories and now eventually oh you stop jumps companies and it has been a gradual gradual. WanNa find interesting to to keep them.

Bond yields, stock prices and gold

"Solid gold losing a bit of sign over over the past week or so as the markets rallied hopes of trade deal. I'm glad you guys can't see what's going on here on the desk that by the way has not stopped city from coming out with a huge bullish bullish call on the yellow metal two thousand dollars an ounce as possible quote in the next year or two as low rates escalating recession risks and geopolitical tensions make the yellow metal unattractive alternative to equity so are you picking up cities call on gold. You guys are designed. That's beyond site think saying that beyond of something else by the way okay anyway. That's the song gold to two thousand I think if you believe that the turn around and yields over the last two or three days a almost a thirty basis point move in the tenure is a is a function of the deflation trade trade running out of steam or we were overdone then I think gold the two thousand is GonNa take you some time but all the structural elements of what took gold two five year highs after running into thirteen fifty resistance. I think are still very much in place but I think we've had an overbought condition and golden. I think we're still working off. I would not find two thousand. I think goer what's interesting about cities. Call also some other calls. We've heard from the street they're getting more bullish on gold is that they're they're underlining the sort of. I don't want to secular ship but a real change in the way central banks are buying golden why they are buying they wanna move away from the US dollar they WANNA dollar is their reserves and so therefore they're looking for other assets S. which would be gold. We've talked about that. I mean the central bank buying we've talked about for months on a show pizza tarmac golden silver for a while as well. It's central banks. are buying gold Chinese are buying the Russians are buying gold. You can look it up. You can see for yourself so I understand. Tim said it's working on overbook condition. I agree one hundred percent. I'm more in the city camp. Maybe there's a little more down. Maybe there's a little more self here on the gold market based on the fact that bonds probably gonNA overbought but I do agree with city. I think think Gold's going higher as well all right. Our neck says you may want to look for cover. All the market faces some pain ahead. Let's bring in Joe's idol chief investment strategist at blackstone. JC Good to have have you back has nothing chain. We've seen this sort of shifts rotation right out of the momentum trade into some of these being that that doesn't give you any hope at that the market is settling in yields have gone higher to which no I think it's all a reflection of this you know renewed optimism on trade talks right so last week you know the US announced that that would be engaging China in October and you saw the curve re steep in equities catch. This bid credit spreads remained pretty orderly and I think it's this new found hope that something's going to get done but I'm a little bit more pessimistic. I don't think that we're GONNA see any quick resolution to trade whatsoever so I think this this move back to you know a pitching wedge away away from from all-time highs in the market is is really just much more of a head fake. I think there's there's downside risk and if you look at what China's been doing recently in order to prepare for you know this trade war basically they've retaliated against the United States by taking up their tariffs but they're lowering tariffs to the rest of the world in other words. They're prepared for a prolonged fight here so I think any hope of a quick resolution. Here is is misplaced so I'm a little skeptical on the gold is deflation hedge when I've heard it as an inflation hedge for the twenty everything right yeah okay. It's an everything hedge why explain the deflation hedge part sure I mean I think it's been a very interesting move of watching gold as this sort of like antidote to all these negative yielding bonds all around the world and if you think about it you know. Are you better off holding gold or you know ten ear or thirty year German bonds at negative yields. Neither one's naturally going to pay you but at least gold has a chance of of maybe going up so I think that's sort of the conventional wisdom that's that's driving gold and my guess is that if the does have to bring you know more rate cuts and some sort of significant. QE package then Dan you know maybe rates in Europe will dip back lower and I think that would provide a little bit more lifted gold prices if trade breakdown which I expect to happen in a perhaps you see you know another move up for gold so I think people are looking at it as this sort of like antidote to all these negative yielding bonds out there so it does seem to make sense Joe inherent and your pessimistic view view is is a credit view. There has to be right when what what's the timeline for you on we really start to see credit spreads widen out because as you said so far so good good yeah I mean I think it's a a really good question for me. It comes back to yield curves. Yield curves are the best predictors of business and economic cycles and it's not just the yield curve in the United States that inverted righted the tends to a couple of weeks ago they they've now re steepened on the hopes of trade but in the month of August basically saw seven or eight different parts of the world with inverted yield curves and now it's the most two thousand six two thousand seven so all around the world. It's telling you that there are economic problems that are brewing and I think you know from my perspective. At least we could start the countdown timer on the end of this expansion which means at some point it is going to translate into into some sort of credit event when it happens you know it's a good question from the time that tends twos and verts you generally have about twenty months before recession. That's the average that means. There's never been a recession twenty months later later. It's it's it's either shorter or longer. It's beautiful law of averages so if you have to take an over under around when the when this expansion is going to end I I would say it's I would take take the under at this point. You know I think trade tensions globally are causing a manufacturing recession and I think that's spills over to the broader economy. You've got Germany whose fron tencent purpose soon recession Italy's been there the UK is there. You know Japan is headed toward their Singapore is very trade. Expose right. They had a massively negative. GDP print all these things I think will translate into a credit event at some point. My guess is probably happen sooner than the market. Thanks so how do you finish out the year and I know it's sort of an ambiguous question but I it almost feels like we're setting up similarly to how we set up for the end of last year in that the backdrop looks a little worse. I mean the the main main thing that's changed is that we have support a fed fed. That's already said you know what we're GONNA. Do whatever we need to do and that is of course a big help but at the same time right now we've got tariffs in place and tariffs going higher. We've got an economic backdrop that hasn't necessarily improve compared to last year and we're entering an earning season. We're companies are going to be talking about the impact of all those tariffs Chris. I think you're right earlier. You're talking about apple and if you think about apple for a second you know the iphone at least this iphone rate here. I don't know about the new ones but this iphone travels about five hundred thousand miles before it ends up on the store shelf right when you think about the apple supply chain this iphone goes through forty five different countries in one thousand suppliers. It would literally get upgraded on united before I would. It's got more miles so as you think about the unintended consequences of trade you've got to wonder. Is it going to be a corporate profits. If it's story because of higher input costs or is it going to be like a consumer. CPI story because companies pass those along neither one of them are good so terms of how we set up for the end of the year. I think that the highs that we hit back in April that were testing. I think are going to be the highest of the year. I think markets are going to be more volatile and probably ably trade down at the beginning of the year. We came with a price target of about twenty nine hundred or so on the S. and P. Five hundred so we thought the market plus fifteen percent for the year we've hit it. We're sticking with that target. I see more volatility. I think Richard to the downside all right Joe. Thanks so much good to see you jazz. I'd like a Jay Z.

Do Not Diminish Your Light

"So i wanna frame up this podcast with a couple of things so so one of the things that we're doing in this podcast frame up and i said podcast not just this podcast but our whole podcast is is to put on display okay so to speak where we're at to show what our life is like and how we feel about it what our feelings are sometimes in the past asked. We've dug into a lot of this shitty times right. <hes> and i just want to make this. This is a a an adjustment or a clarification that the focus is on you know where we're at right now however feeling and to show you to put our life as this is the journey we took took and we are taking currently and our continued to take yes and so i i'm i'm saying i don't wanna dwell as much in the past because more and more people who are coming to us. We've really expanded our counseling and coaching. It's been really fun. Exciting a lot of people i've noticed one dwell on the past about how shitty their life is and how their shitty their life has been <hes> and one of the first things i do is reorient you towards the possibilities in to the paradise to the future and because there's these negative thought loops that get people get on and they seem to dwell in them seem to do well i used to do that. I used to run rails in my head so lewis shitty past gives you permission to have shitty present which would indicate that you actually don't want a good president if you want to dwell on the past and and create shitty president yeah so i'm interested in illuminating this state of light and joy and then giving people hope to get there and show them how to if they want to come to counseling coaching events or just listen to the podcast yup i got a frown in there was a general all around yeah. That's what i have to deal with so my pleasant place where i am right now is i'm feeling pretty down. 'cause my girlfriend girlfriend frowned at me. She's my wife anyway. How are you feeling so. Let's start right there jenny. How are you feeling right now. Where are you at. Where am i well. Philip k feeling a little stressed while stress because we we have our marriage and <unk> shades of intimacy coming up next weekend september sixth seventh and eighth so just doing a lot of prep mentally physically xactly energetically for that event which is both a incredibly exciting. I'm like this morning. I woke up. I just my eyes popped open open and i was excited and then you go through the waves of holy shit. There's so much to do and then pop back out and you get really excited again and then you're like. I've got this great idea. Pop back out and you're like oh my god so i think people can relate right. I mean this is where we're at and navigated to it now. Now i will briefly talk about the past for second in our past. We would usually be pretty turbulent right all right so we've worked really hard to be where we are now. Where mildly mildly turbulence is way okay better than where we're at right. I think people can relate to win. You kinda have regular meltdown so speak right yeah right. I my mom anytime she would have visitors coming to clean the house. She is coming to clean the hell out of visitors coming to visit she would i would start with the oh i need to clean and then it would just turn into we'll just turn into a meltdown right pattern. There's always and tencent a mirror so think about. I think people can relate to some event out there and as it comes up they start to go into meltdown mode. It's pretty typical. But what if we just go into feeling good and so that's what we're doing this. We're just feeling really good <hes> and from that good we're still doing all the shit we need to do to get better right that interesting difference big difference like we could clean the house in a panic feeling like we're just fucking losing it and fuck this. We should cancel the event. We're gonna just die. Clean clean clean or hey. I'm so excited right. I'm cleaning now. That's a nuclear bomb of information. I just dropped on eugenie there. The world go big difference. It's possible to do it differently. Yeah okay frame set intimate with iron bars. <hes> okay so today we've had. We did three days in a row. Let's talk about one of the experiences that we had that. We've done three days in a row. We've gone for our morning walks yeah or not. Some morning walks on some of the day's yesterday. It was the mid day. Burn me out destroy. My gimme heatstroke day was still was a great walk. Walk yep so talk about walks okay. You've been telling me that they're like you rose every day yeah no. They're awesome. I mean they're a long stretch of time to get the body moving and the mind moving and we do a lot of idea generating and they're just awesome just the connecting bodily with movement bodily with movement okay yeah well yeah i mean it's like it's opposed to sitting across from each other talking. We're walk walk at the same time and there's something that adds to it that we're walking that the body is moving the piece. I want to talk about so today. We had a fantastic experience. Just fantastic and we're going to talk about it. <hes> i loved this experience. Do you want to tell the story sure so we were walking along. There's obviously walking past a bunch of houses in our neighborhood and all of a sudden. We hear this little little boy voice little a little boy voice ringing out with this song. I don't even know what the hell the song was. It's no discernible song but he's just singing any. I can see his sister up near the front door and his brother was over in the in the driveway and really all. I can't locate it. I can see the two other kids and i can't really locate this other. We're this voice disembodied voice coming from and i mean he's loud. He's he's just seeing it out and i'm looking and those i see the sign like a for sale sign. These two little fee. I'm like i found and it and it was just so cute. I mean just his little lungs were full and he was belting out. Whatever the hell is what it was horrible and because we can really see him he couldn't see us and so we're walking along and we we we walk around the edge of the of the sign where he can see us and all of a sudden his just joyous he is belted out song trails off into this little embarrassed and gets quieter in it was funny just drill down and i thought i had a funny line. This isn't really funny but i thought i said something mike mike and thus the boy learned shame i mean that's what ed it became. He became embarrassed. I mean that's what it seemed right and so his this amazing joyous moment for him just trailed off into this little diminish embarrassed embarrassed to nothingness it did and it was it was exuberant excitement and we both picked up on it <hes> we were. We were looking at each other and going. I mean this. This kid is howling a song like kosong berg and there were no words it was just a howl of delight and emotion and just like a bird talking the talk talk talk knock you know and and we walked around and i and he looked up and he looked up at me and just a trail and i waved thome and i wanted to give him the biggest smile i could yeah because i loved what he was doing right but interestingly enough something happened right yeah something happened and he become self conscious and he felt on some level something wrong with his song <hes> and that he must must be quiet. <hes> an embarrassment you could see the layers shit just piling onto on right at that moment right and i don't know maybe where the source of back those layers came from but it wasn't us right like like clean moment we utterly appreciated him singing and utterly utterly appreciated him trailing off right just gave him unconditional love <hes> yeah he's got the biggest small it's usually she's frowning at amoebae this time. It isn't that true actually not true get defensive. Let's talk about this. I anyway so yeah great experience. What did you get from that well. I mean i think i got what we just kind of walked through is how you know we we have these moments of exuberance and then stories stories or whatever creep in and it diminishes it but it also gave me a very powerful moment of seeing seeing being that i want the opposite and that i want the opposite for other people in that moment. It made me sad that he trailed trailed off that his song diminished to a low hum it made me sad and so what that provided aided me was insight into. I want the opposite. I want little kids who how their songs and don't stop because people walk by but i also want the same for myself you know this. This child was a perfect little microcosm of what we we do day in day out to ourselves you ourselves. Do you remember me talking about the pencil rocket story about his in this interesting. I was just telling you about oh my eighth grade or sixth grade pencil rocket story <unk>. I just remember putting these two things together about a night or two ago. I was telling jenny that when i was a kid i had an active imagination <hes> just a really active imagination and one day i was. I think i was in eighth grade but it could be sixth grade. I was in mr norm colours history class the guy who made us memorize and speak in front of everybody the gettysburg address little factual for you that just came up from the depths of my brain and i had two pencils and it occurred to me in like a study period moment or something that they looked a lot like spaceships because they were pointed at the front and the erasers looked like the fire coming out the end of a spaceship and so i began to fly them around course right shaw show. I'm like this is about a lot of all in their chasing each other shooting each other and was having the most it's amazing time right just absolutely amazing time and i had a friend who really looking out for me looking after he was and he's all like comes up to do. You just got stopped. That look like a moron. You look like an idiot. You look like you're you're. You're embarrassing. You'll never get a girl. I remember that line and i was just like it was interesting because i'm sure i'm sure sure any girl in the eighth grade considering dancing or dating me at that time was probably surely put off by by the pencil the intense world i was in my own world right like like this kid was in his own world yeah completely yeah oh yeah and here's the thing by the sound of his song. We knew he was in a beautiful world. Yeah he was in the best world ever and i was having the best ruled ever with my rocket ships and my friend was like i gotta help you here. You're embarrassing yourself. You look you're just not hear back to less optimal world where you should worry about shit like this yeah. That's your thing and and i'll i'll say i can piece some things out of it. <hes> that are useful like present present be aware of how your behavior affects others. If in this moment you really don't give a shit. He just being you and bill. It's also aware of was like okay. That girl cute one three rows back. She's not going to date me anymore but that's okay.

Get scared from the regular humans and the implications of what happens if they get caught. Yeah. You know, these these characters. Like, they might be types. But the dialogue is written well enough to act where you actually take them seriously like either the dialogue is written so clever that is funny characters become endeared too. Because they make you laugh in in in even though they are talking in the shade kind of way they sound. They sound genuine are the the the the writing series enough to where they gets really good dramatic moments in this, especially when I lead guy after everything he seem he starts losing. And you you really feel for him because we see what he's seeing. He's coming back, and he's trying to tell people like man look seeing the scene right now. Did you get inside the church Ted? Experience on doing experiments on the villagers all burning people with these flake doors, and they're still moving. Did you is Metallica? And she's still she's still I saw. Get shit. Shit again, h man is a lot of moments in here where where they. These characters are having some very good dramatic moments moments of fear, even moments of bravery just moments where this. Just after a while after being with each other. You see that they actually care for each other to know, they do a great job in this movie making these characters though, there types, feel humid that they would actually if they were that type act out that way, naturally, whatever and something you mentioned about the humor in here. They really great ways of. Importing humor into the writes about whereas not silly or goofy. Like, but it it comes at a time to make you feel like these characters human because they're not just all scared terrified the whole time. It's not the look the reason why you see types and movie you don't like them is because they're written badly. Doesn't mean that you can't take types and use the most types that we've seen as long as you give them something that seemed like an effort was made are there's some good riding behind them. It can work, and that's what I was looking at here. And I was like, yeah. In any some other films? He's types of annoying because the dialogue would have been bad would have been still to follow these these these these plot points that you know, a lazy script through lazy. Yeah. But. One one area that really bucks to trend. That's happening right now is this actress of Mathilde all of Libya, and she's good. I I looked up and she hasn't been in anything too. Big. Just one of the biggest thing she's been enough. She has been something else. I haven't really seen. It are read about French don't. Yeah. I'm not sure. Because I know she plays French in here. But one of the things that did like made a very good is that, you know, she's strong. But not in at trendy way that was trying to make women strong today where they forced them top or anything. She's still emotional and vulnerable, but she's strong. She's she's not a message. She's not something. That's right. But that's the thing. She's still vulnerable in here. She's brave, but it's not it's not forced. You know, she's tough. But it's not. But you know, it's not no way that feels fake like, oh, you know. That's what women into right now. So let's give the women's something to root for not. She was just a person who was doing what she had to do. In got tired of taking the shit off these Nazis here. There's some like I say there's some good Geraldo moments in here to men, and I'm talking about moments with the. Moments with the war stuff. I'm not even talking about the supernatural stuff. You know, I look at some of the gun battles. They have in here at sometimes better warfare than a monster movie. Because one of the reasons why because you hate these Nazis so much these Nazis. Is the worst of the worst man, they give you every reason in the book to hate them, you know, sexually drugs. Yeah. That meant in you main way, they treat the villagers does those Nazis where they you know, they just smug like they kill somebody. And then you hear them dog don't fucking Nazi talk. In the new.

"A. time and also Hong Kong time as you were writing it and talking to people a ten cent. What were the differences in culture that you were experiencing? You know with the right people in the ten cent people. I mean, is it. Go ahead. There's a clear difference. Sure. In that differences that ride is opera Thomas almost cult employees are really drilled in. It's really drilled into employees is that the player comes first before money that if it's if it's not good for the player, even though it'll make more money, you don't do it and you know, in in meetings, if you talked about all of this feature will make more money, it was really frowned upon at least at the lower rank and file level idea, the higher as you get hired to that, they care, you know that. Yeah, but ten says all about this pragmatism, right? It's a business that you know, it's not clear, I insult. You know, there were lots of tensions over and you know this echoes in the Arctic v got cut with just a steady of that tencent overly monetize their players in riot, you know, was more about, you know, player I. And so when you talk to people actually allow the rank and file employees felt that the reason for the Hong Kong office, the main reason was actually to build a connection to Chinese players, ROY Moore features, players make him. Happier as you get further up the chain, the executives, you know, nor to the leadership level, they say things like, well, the business relationship they wanted to improve that. Yeah. Was it clear right when this deal was happening among the riot people that there were going to be some cultural issues at play? I asked because this is a company that I used to follow pretty closely when I was in LA because it's very much a local company and people seem pretty excited when the deal I happened. It was such a win for the local l. a. tech scene, but within within riot, was it initially? I mean, I think I think that it wasn't clear at the time because China wasn't a huge market yet, and that was the only source of conflict, right? Tencent actually left right alone in the rest of the world. They said, right, you can do whatever you want. You know, the game outside the China when it came to China, though that was the subject of contention. Was that right? Wanted to get more involved? And that's where the cultural clash was. You know, a lot of people at riot never saw interacted with like tencent person. You know when they were there. In Los Angeles, at least. Yeah. So, yeah, the only became an issue when China got big, right, right. And then you have this kind of amazing anecdote of basically tencent building a rogue mobile version of the game that is a total success in China. I mean something that right had no interest in to to begin with. Right, right. And that was like actually a a major point of contention within the company. Is that a and again, as an outsider, you think it's all just in coordinated. Right? That probably tencent, you know, got the permission from riot right helped with the game. You would. Right, right. And that's, that's the thing when I started that was like another point that kind of gaming in cleaned or something off is that you know, when that.

"So for them, they have a lot invested in the game, but but for tencent is just one of many, many games in China that operates intensive is very pragmatic. You know, they're not gonna, you know, champion one game or the other unless they think it's going to make more money. Right. And so you know, for riot, they felt that you know, maybe the game wasn't getting the attention it deserved or they thought that they could do better. In China it because they were solely focused on this one game on the heavy other games. And so that's sort of kind of the motivation. And then you know what, right it was. You know, they thought, well, let's open up an office in Hong Kong and try to get involved more in what's happening in China. Maybe if we do a good job down the road, when we release feature games, we can get a beverage revenue split. So that was the other issue is that tens of was taking seventy percent of the revenue from the game in China before you reached? Right. And so now that was a big that was fine. You know, when they signed that deal in two thousand eight for they even came was gonna. Do you know blockbuster, you know, in China, but you know, flash forward, you know, six years later in the game is most of the revenues from from China, and they're only seeing rights only seen thirty percent of it right now. Why is that an issue though? When riot is you know, ninety plus percent owned by by tencent while this don't care? Yes, because the employees, right. The employees are get paid right based on how the gaming does. Right? So you know, they're, they're not gonna see higher bonus or their shares in the company aren't going to be as valuable if the game doesn't. You know if they don't make sure the game does well in China, right? Which is a bit of a misalignment in incentives, right? I mean, theoretically, it all should be towards, you know, making parent company more successful because that's all that's who owns you. Right? Right. Yeah, you would think so from the outside point of view, but you know, once you know, I started digging digging into the motivations. I realize like, oh, this is why it's because you know the dates about, you know, you know, it's about money, it's about with employees get. Yeah.

"All right, Wayne. So you've got this massive story about ten cents and bright games and the tricky relationship between the two companies. And I, I mean, if if you haven't read the story, I don't speaking to our listeners here. You should just read the whole thing. It's lengthy, but it goes into such details about, you know how these companies are trying to make it work, even though there's occasionally differing different strategies in different philosophies. But I mean, just right off the bat, Wayne, like what was your instigating factor in wanting to look at these companies in the story? I mean, what was like the first thing when you're like, I should probably investigate more about what's going on here. Well, it's it's interesting because. You know, I kind of been covering tents, not an off at my previous job at the Wall Street Journal. And occasionally, you know, sources would say, oh, you know, these companies don't get along, but they, they really couldn't really articulate why. But the telling thing wasn't two thousand fourteen. They opened up an office in Hong Kong Ryan. You know, that was very curious for a lot of people in the industry because they said, well, ten cent takes care of the game in China. So why do you need like you know, white? Why do you need riot open up a another office? Why does the ride just use Henson's offices? So that was sort of the inkling that there was something that that wasn't rights? Yeah, let's let's talk about that because that was one of the more interesting. I mean, there are so many, but one of the parts of really stuck out about the story. So explain to me this like rogue tencent riot office. Well, I mean normal outsider when they see that a company is owned by a much larger company, they just assume that everything's in sync, right that the subsidiary checks with the parent company before they do anything. That everything's gonna coordinated in in riots case though, because it operated as almost a separate company, you know, they were kinda just trying to do their own thing. I'm tencent knew about the office, but it was it was more when rights started to do things in China, that tencent wasn't happy with that right. Allow this conflict of came about. Right. So what were some of the things you mentioned in the story, but just for people who haven't ready yet? What were some of the things that right was doing? The tencent wasn't thrilled with well? Sure. Well, you have to go to the motivations first. So the idea is that the people at riot, they make their money from legal revenue tencent doesn't give them like an allowance or anything like that every year..

We've got two stories, two segments that we are digging into this week. First off, I am talking to Wayne Ma. He's one of our Hong Kong reporters haven't had on the podcast yet, but very excited to chat with him about his story. He did with Jerusale on tencent in its relationship with riot games, right games as of course, the maker of league of legends that crazy popular massive multiplayer online role playing game, and it was acquired a couple of years back. And since then it's been it's sort of a difficult balancing act between tencent and riot Wayne, Doug very, very deeply into that story long with zero. And we have fun conversation about both the kind of current state of affairs between the companies and also how he went about getting the story which had, I think, almost forty or maybe more than forty people. Kind of as sources for it, and then talking about drainage also a first podcast. He's one of our investigative reporters, and he story about self driving car technology and the lack of data that is being collected by both the state and federal agencies about just how at fault these technologies are in accidents. It's, you know, obviously not very widely deployed right now, but if this truly does become the way of the future and you start seeing more self driving cars on the road because I don't think it's going to happen for a long time, but certainly a lot of people in Silicon Valley do then there needs to be better collection of data. And so Matt kind of laid out the stakes right now and just how little is being done to fix all of the lacking data problems. All right. That is. That's a pretty good well-stocked episode. I think. Sorry, if I'm a little tired today, we are deep into the dog days of August. Now, which of course in San Francisco means it's cold every day, and that does things to you. But enough about me.
