"Say it. We begin this hour with NBA player in his Cantor freedom who's taking on anyone he believes is remaining too silent when it comes to China's human rights abuses. You have free Tibet on your sneakers and you get and they've Celtics get basically kicked out of Chinese television. It felt like the shoes were kind of the culmination of a lot of thoughts. So take me through the process of how you decided that you were going to wear those shoes to begin the Celtic season. When I was a kid, whenever I watched an NBA game, the first thing I was looking was the shoes. What color it is, what brand, if they're comfortable, and I was going and buy it. I wanted to do something so unique and different. So all the other kids out there in the world can just be inspired by it. My first topic was Tibet. Right. So I remember it was 20 minutes before the game. I took my shoes out. I put it on my feet. I went out there. And my team is just like trying to understand what it is. But they were like, wow, it's a beautiful shoes. It's so colorful. It's this and that. I'm like, you're just waiting. We sang the national anthem after that we've come in huddle. While coach's talking, there's two gentlemen from the Celtics. There were Celtics officials. Came to me and said, we are begging you, please take your shoes off. I was very confused. I turned around. Before the game even starts. Before the game starts, yeah. I was like, what do you mean? He said your shoes are beginning so much attention. We've been getting so many calls. You have to take those shoes off. I was like, oh, my God. I can not believe this is happening. It was a perfect moment because I was just getting ready for my citizenship test. So I was like, there are 27 amendments. My First Amendment freedom of speech, I'm like, no. You can not tell me what to do because this is my freedom of speech. And they're like, we are not talking about a fine. We're talking about getting back. After that, I did not take my shoes off. And I played zero minutes that game.

"I mean, even the books I read, I had read them on the basis of these experiences. And even one very strange example, for instance, is in Tibet, many of the sort of llamas would have like a little pot with mustard seeds in that they would use as part of a dispelling ritual. And I would literally like buy a little pot from a gift shop and fit it with mustard seeds from the kitchen and arrange it on a tray in exactly identical way as it would be done in a Tibetan context. You know what? That's absolutely fascinating. Did you ever get to the point of understanding how that was by? Because that's really unusual, isn't it? I mean, that's quite it's not experiencing a really has. So in that whole time, how long were you a month for? So it was sort of 8 years officially as a monk, but I kind of lived as a monk for almost 15 years. So by the end of that process, did you ever come to some sort of understanding about how you got involved? I mean, it's very unusual, especially if you've got like a twin brother and he's not going through those experiences. It must have seemed a bit strange in the west to be honest with him, but this is this sort of stuff played down a lot. And obviously in Tibetan culture, they have this method of recognize it. For example, reincarnated llamas and stuff. And there's sort of a status attached to that. So in the western sort of applications of Buddhism and the organizations associated with them, that's really downplayed. And I think rightly so, because it kind of distracts from the message and you don't want to sort of create personality costs. So I think I kind of kept it quite private to be honest. But then if people ask me, you're doing directly. I'm a very direct person.

On the first day of 2022, outside Jean Jacques in the hospital in the middle of China's worst coronavirus outbreaks in Wuhan, a woman 8 months pregnant, miscarried after being refused carry a care until she had tested negative for the virus. This is a large accumulation of horror stories from the totalitarian China that is Xi, China. They have locked down an entire city. People are without food and water and medical care. And what G, president Xi is concerned about general secretary of the Communist Party is bad press because the genocide games are about to get underway.

"I'm not at all worried like I said about him improving to a hand that beats ours. It's just kind of a matter of what are my how large does my hand want to size when I raise? I don't know anything else that you're thinking about before. No, I think that's pretty much it. What's our appropriate value sizing here? Just kind of like going back to the turn. I mean, if you size to like one 20, then there's two 4300 in the pot compared to 200. And I don't know if they decide to lead like half pot here, but if they did, that would be like a significant, much larger pot if they don't. And even if they don't dunk, you can actually just overt the river as well. Targeting their apex. So you can there's 300 in the river. You can just bet four 50 or whatever. And you expect to still get paid off by a sex. That's a good point. I really am just honestly, really embarrassed with my turn sizing now that we've spent 5 minutes talking about it. It's just so bad. It's so terrible. It accomplishes the minimum of just it's like, it's just like the worst of both worlds, I think. You just gotta go for it and like, yeah, villains are gonna fold a lot, but when you do hit the situation, it's much better Tibet, much bigger. So they've got a 110. And so the way that I would think about this is, again, I don't know, like in the last ten, we talked about villain having potentially having like a spectrum of sizes. I'm totally biased because I know what they have. I just don't think this feels like a boat. I think it feels a lot like asaps. And I don't think like the ultra green, you know, the all in button. I would be I would be very afraid of blowing them off as by just ripping it. What size would you expect boats to lead for if they do lead or would you, are you saying that boats don't lead?

"Because it was so real and they blessed it tears in their eyes weeping buckets. They had come home to tibet. The only problem was they were in argentina but it suggested the power of fantasy the power that hollywood actually has to recreate the semblance of reality. I was a very difficult thing for me to get down there. But i felt it was absolutely important to do that because i was writing this book and i needed to actually be there to watch them. Recreate the dream. The projection of tibet. That way to bet was in the forties when tibetan culture and tibetan society still cohered and had not yet been ripped apart by all of china's revolutionary political reforms. And so that's really what the movie is done and if you see it it's very convincing. There's a tremendous faithfulness detail. Some of the script is you know. Maybe you might cavill with the debate. And it has hollywood and places but then hollywood is hollywood. Any film that cost seventy million dollars is probably not going to be the kind of film martin. Scorsese would make his film is going to be very interesting to see no stars. No caucasians nothing just tibetans. But there was this confusion the whole time between illusion reality and the effect on all of the actors. There are people from twenty two countries down there a living with all these tibetans month. After month reenacting tibetan history was profound. Many people become very became very infatuated and dedicated to buddhism. They became deep and very respectful friends of many of the tibetans. There was a profound and curious. Interchange rarely happens on any other film because of this blurring of reality and the hollywood dreaming but to the chinese. Got it. no they don't think Cuddly dalai lama spiritually evolved. Telling rational reasonable compassionate. All of the things that we associate. He's trying to run away with part of china. He's a splittist. They think Tibet that's the place. The monks were drinking blood out of skullcaps of murdered serfs. They're not lining up to to go there on a tracker tour so what china sees when it sees tibet is something very different from what we see because the projections that they put on it a very different. They're they've been cultivated by fifty years of chinese communist propaganda which views about utterly differently. And they're very nationalistic about it. Very intelligent chinese. Don't think there's any grounds whatsoever for for tibet to be autonomous or independent. And i think the westerners who are concerned should get out of their face that they're meddling in the internal affairs of china and chinese sovereignty. And it's intolerable so you can see it's a very different projection. A very different view of things and it this laws at the heart in a certain way of why. This is such a sensitive and such an emotionally supercharged issue because each of the sees it very differently and there's great elements of truth and much of what we appreciate about tibet or understand about and some of it is a bit romanticized. Some of it is really tells as much about ourselves as it does about tibet..

"Find out that they're rushing an injured soldier to the hospital for the world. Hsun jafari in kabul iranians have had enough of their long drought specifically in iran southwestern province where people are protesting the severe water shortage. They say their hardships are about poor. Water management for the past week crowds of demonstrators have been met with a violent response from security forces. At least three people have died joining me to discuss. All of this is covered madani. He's a senior fellow yell university and the former deputy head of iran's department of environment covey what is the extent of the water shortage in hoses. Dan right now. Desisto is essentially water bankrupt. Water demand is for more than the available water on has been using. It's it's a lot of resources unsustainably. Because don has just one of these places where the explosion eventually has appeared. People are saying that we have had enough and the environment is actually saying that it has had enough. We'll just over two years ago. The same region of iran was underwater extreme flooding. How does a region exhaust surface and groundwater in such a short period of time a very good question that part of iran and all parts of iran or half floods and droughts now this place was flooded for two years. They lots of damages. But the reservoirs got fooled but people forgot that they have to conserve and use less water. And when i say people it's it's not really people government allocates water to two different uses agriculture domestic sector industrial sector and then they drain the reservoir. And now there's no rain and no. Water is available for that farmers to irrigate their farms and and cities are even suffering. So what is the one big management mistake that should have been avoided to have prevented this current shortage. Essentially iran is a semi-arid area whose estan provinces is an exception it. It's it's very wet. It has mountains in north and south. It has the persian gulf. But then you start putting reservoirs everywhere. You use water for agriculture. Don't supply enough water to your wetlands. Don't supply of water to the environment and ecosystem so essentially you're developing unsustainably. How'd you see climate change affecting and making the situation. Even worse climates is everywhere heatwave and wildfires in in california floods in in germany or drought in iran. Climate has a multiplier effect. Climate change increases the intensity and frequency of extreme events alike each babes floods and drought so it catalyze the problem it exacerbates the problem. You cannot blame it as the main cause and if you do that essentially you justify what is happening. This means that managers and governments don't have any liability but managers and governments are there to forecast and predict these situations and get the system prepared and make it resilient we have not enough action by the governments to get us prepared for what is happening at the global scale and his making the problems worse. Cover that you worked in the public sector in environmental management in iran. What kind of reforms or reframing needs to happen for more sustainable water situation in the country this economic model which only thinks about production and doesn't think about the environment is dysfunctional. This has been proven to us around the world. Iran must change its development model. What's must invest in the industrial and service sector and decrease the pressure on. Its natural environment if he wants to survive this. This means diversifying the economy and making big reforms to the agriculturists actor and these are very very painful surgeries that you can't do essentially in systems where people are mad at you or have lost trust and faith in the government and it's not just iran as you alluded earlier. I mean the next big crisis and the globe we are told that is already here is around water shortages that are leading to monetization of water and making it less accessible to a lot of people. What does this situation in. Hoses don tell us about the future of water everywhere. We are water bankrupting in many places. The system that we have is is not sustainable. Right now what we are. Seeing in iran is is a political crisis. Is it's a social crisis. You cannot take the metal sector and prescribe solutions for the environmental sector disregarding all other governance and social issues to that point. Kava before i let you go i wanted to ask you about could assign which is home to an arab ethnic minority that has historically faced discrimination from the iranian government. To what extent are the environmental outcomes are due to a pattern of certain groups being de prioritized by the government. This is a very hard question to answer if this is intentional. Or this is a systematic failure. It's it's like you know the problem we have with. The african american communities are black communities in the united states. That you see that they know there is a pattern. There that inequality exists in the system in every sector. We have the same situations. Ethnic communities the environmental injustice implications of the development projects in iran are significant. But before i let you go let me tell you this. You know who's estan is a very rich region in terms of oil and gas it. The benefits of who's a staunch were not limited to iraq. You in the united states have also benefited from the oil that this region has produced what we didn't think about was the environmental justice implications of our aggressive economic development that was dependent on fossil energy. And now those people are left with pollution and we are here in the united states with a much better quality of life. And i think this is something for us to to consider how our lifestyle how what we do. In in europe or north america is affecting people in the global south. Kobe madani is a senior fellow at yale.

About an essay you wrote recently about the relationship between the the diaspora and haiti at this critical moment members of the diaspora. Wanna play a role in shaping. The future of haiti but that is not so simple. What is attention you see there. It's that simple because we know we add another country. We don't live physically in the country and so decisions are not really Based on reality on the ground. That's the challenge haiti because it's middle-class essentially a defacto middle class for also to marco. Is that the data for has some work to be done. it's institutions are not as strong as they ought to be on the need to be rather to engage. It would haiti and so right now. The role department of role is that of a atm machine. Just basically send money back home and help families and relatives he got living and so the challenge is to find out. How can we engage meaningfully because eighty needs. It's middle class to succeed. The fact you mentioned the second go the fact that the diasporas largely middle class able to send some three plus billion dollars back to the island and remittances a year. I mean that middle class also create some tension with people on the island who are not middle-class. Actually no because everyone has a dass. Bo's helping them. The is from the political class. Who sees that as a threat. They don't want them anymore. Engage because then that creates competition quiz threat that they're not comfortable giving away to what they call outsiders. There is that diaspora that is largely middle classes. You say i mean much has been said over the decades about The power of the small circle of haitian elites and the much more populous. Poor on the island. Can you describe what that looks like. Today what impact. It's having on the upheaval intention. We're seeing a around the country especially import prints. You have about ten to twenty families maybe twenty five but slot that controls ninety five percent of the country and we industry is unlivable. Then it starts with little wealth distribution whatsoever how embedded in haiti is that economic stratification. Like what would it take for that to even out. All you gotta do is if you have good government a fair live very to democratize the economy dismantle those monopolies that are in place right now and let it be a true free market place. And so those are the issues that i think the clear-headed members of the dassler saying these are the conditions that we need to compete because we want to invest. Now just coming and blow money away. What do you think the. Us role should be now in helping eighty. The us has a long and complicated history with one hand. If done their best and the other hand.

I do hope that they don't have to go back home with a sense that this was rather disappointing.

The athletes will be focused on the events. They've been training for looking to make some of their own olympic history for the world. I'm bianca hillier. China's president xi jinping made a surprising visit this week. He traveled to the tibet. Autonomous region of china visit comes as chinese authorities are looking to further control tibet's traditional buddhist culture and generally the region. Robert barnett is an expert on to bed. He's a research associate at the school of oriental studies in london. Tibet is always in the news on the back burner robbie but this seems important to help us understand why there's visit tobacco significant for china's president. That hasn't been a visit by a chinese president since one thousand nine hundred thirty one years since we've seen a visit at this level to debate and it comes at a very important time for two reasons one as tensions between china and india which are all along. The tibet order are rising rapidly. India's mobilized fifty thousand soldiers to the board of china's probably done the same so this is a big signal that could raise tensions along that border and the second reason is that china's program too. Shall we say controlled. Culture into bed and religion is really gaining momentum. Now from what we can tell from the small signs of news that come out so she jinping being there is a sign that this cultural shall we say. Cultural management program is really gathering momentum so the signal She ascending to this border tension between china and india. What message is he sending. Well he didn't go just to the tibetan capital. Lhasa hit the a place he went to was a place coordinating tree which is about three hundred miles east of lahser much lower altitude and nutri is the main chinese base for imigrants. That's why the chinese liked to live. If they've got the choice could it's lower altitude. But it's also the main military base for the troops. The chinese troops and is very close to the disputed indian border so we have a very interesting phenomenon. A huge amount of videos being poured out of china show this visit by xi jinping. They all show him meeting monks and ordinary people in the streets very relaxed. But they don't show anything to do with the military or security or place but probably that may have been the real reason why he was. There was to to show support for the troops who are lining up against the indian soldiers on the gorda just a few miles from where he was the day before yesterday. So meantime in the background. How we're local tibetans and their government in exile responding to visit. Well i it's fascinating because the videos that china has put out a show very cla- cafe cheering crowds greeting the president. Our chairman as he walked through the streets of laws and is quite remarkable because these videos are clearly about showing no security. You don't see uniform place alone soldiers although they must all be there in huge numbers out of sight. And if you look carefully you can see these crowds very carefully arranged and they're probably selected people in the streets that cut off so it will somewhat stench manage. But we don't know what anybody really thinks inside tibet. It's almost impossible. Virtually no news comes out can really be confirmed but we do know what exiles thinking They've put out a statement. You know there's been a hundred and fifty six thousand dollars around the world off of them. In india and their exile government administration has taken kind of low key. Approach this visit and said that xi jinping could use this visit to understand better and begin negotiations with the exile allama so the exile government mcvay moderate in its approach. Still trying to push the chinese to to take a step towards talks that might resolve this. What is it seventy a conflict. Well robbie tibet's a witnessed massive economic development and an unparalleled infrastructure. Build up in recent years at. How is that effort been received into bed. Well people are very. i think. Probably thrilled about the improved infrastructure of the modernization into bed especially if they compared to surrounding countries like india qadesh nepal and so on where the standard of living is is much lower in terms of these practical issues. But people in tibet. They are very aware think although we can't read their minds and they can't really tell us but when we do the we hear a lot anguish a lot of paying about what china is doing to culture and tibetan religion languages becoming less and less significant in teaching in schools. They're pushing chinese language classes in kindergarten and in every village now they have permanent teams of officials. Every monastery in every village to bet that doesn't exist anywhere else in china so this control society events society in which now featuring pink is pushing citation chinese dominance assimilation of the culture and their religion. It won't wipe out to culture but it will definitely make a secondary. I mean no doubt. There is deep suspicion between to bed and beijing. I'm wondering though. Tibetans look over in xinjiang in northwest china and see an even more bleak future when the put them further under the thumb of beijing. What would you say about that. And the parallels between tibet and xinjiang. I think that the parallels between pension john have been hugely overplayed by foreign media and people misled about this because it but understandably because the party the communist use the same language same terms for what they're doing thought transformation. They caught it. And so on modernisation night alcohol rural revitalization and so on so they have these key terms and they use some of the same techniques but engine jong used with maximum force in tibet. They are we re ah council force being used but it's really very rare compared to xinjiang so the implementation of these policies is completely different in nature and this is probably because the chinese like so many countries and so many people are basically islamophobic. They've used the american idea of anti-terrorism from twenty years ago to justify a crackdown on essentially on islam islamic peoples of an unprecedented ferocity three in tibet. We don't see that..

"A reflection of the pain and disruption. We've all felt over the past year. Some of the pain for athletes today. The sixty eight thousand seat stadium. Tokyo was also largely empty. Just a small group of journalists and international dignitaries first lady jill biden was there representing the us. The famous parade of nations was also pretty sparse with only a limited number of athletes. Taking part the rest watch from the olympic village as the world's bianca hillier reports. These olympics are shaping up to be nothing like what japan imagined when it won the hosting bid eight years ago long before the corona virus pandemic the tokyo games were already billed as the recovery olympics. That's got a lot to do with history. Going back to the nineteen sixty four games in tokyo less than two decades after world war two. That was an occasion in which japan tried to showcase to the world. You will successfully covet and reconstructed after the devastation. That was caused to japan in the second world. War coachee ikano is a political science professor at sofia university. In tokyo he says back in the sixties that messaging resonated with people. The competition was dubbed. The greatest games ever and there was a sense of national unity over steel national sessile pride what japan achieved in the postal. That's the spirit. Japan wanted to capture when it was picked to host the games again in two thousand thirteen just two years after the devastating earthquake soon. Nami a nuclear disaster in the northeast. Irebu remembers that time. She grew up in yokohama. Just outside of tokyo. Japan was as country in a state of a lot of sadness in a lot of loss of hope. And within all of that there was this announcement that reroute gonna be able to host something that kind of thought the world together politicians saw an opportunity to coaching. Ikano says they hoped the twenty twenty games would reclaim japan's lost status. As the leading nation of asia beijing had just hosted the two thousand eight games and china's economy had just surpassed japan's there was a sense of mission on the part of the conservative rule. Was that. Japan needs to be taken back so the one of the projects was to get successful. Bid for the olympics under the name of recovery olympics at the center of the bed was japanese word. Almo tashi in essence means welcoming someone with a respect. I rea- says she was genuinely excited for japan to welcome people from all over the world just like they did in two thousand nineteen hosting the rugby world cup massage of a teaser. Rugby is nowhere near as big as the olympics. But i think there was just an example of how host and showcase that part of our culture. Now everything has changed. Ryu shares a widely held concerned that this version of the games does not capture. The almost nashi spirit cova has largely taken over. The narrative officials have cancelled. Almost all events meant to honor fukushima and the games have become a lightning rod. For controversy chief yoshiro mori is to resign. The ceremony director has been fired. Creative director responsible for the games opening and closing ceremonies has resigned at this point. The whole twenty twenty olympics brand appears to be tarnished for some toyota. A major sponsor pulled its commercials in tokyo and that could be just. The beginning says nancy snow of kyoto university that takes and company like toyota. That has such great reputation in history. Could van have this spillover effect on others to step forward so it was certainly the worst scenario for the ones who've been planning the olympics to see that half and just days before the opening ceremony. The games were meant to bolster japan's reputation. But i review is nervous about the damage. That's already been done. I feel like.

"Is explanation one. Oh one we are going all the way back to basics and tibet understand. Why explanation is so interesting to skin and also decipher the different full in varieties. I'm hoping you can help us out. Absolutely let's kick things off really really simply leeann. What is explicitly. I should so when we talk about exfoliating. We're talking about using things or products that exfoliating skin from the outside in skin has its own natural exfoliating process which is known as discrimation. That happens from the inside out. We can talk about that a little bit through the podcast as well. This is a bit of a back to front question. But what happens if you don't explicitly eight your skin. Well as i said. Your skin does exfoliating naturally however certain things slow that down so we have the natural biological aging process premature aging which is influenced by different things that are external like say the sun and also situations where the skin itself has issues. doesn't exfoliating correctly in that often happens in the follicle this causes breakouts and blemishes and other unfavorable skin conditions. So if we're not exfoliating topically and hoping that process along it can lead to things like that seaney to give it a helping hand. Absolutely yeah you just get this build up of dead skin on the surface so we give it to helping him by hoping that to slough away okay then so on the other hand what does happen to ask in when we do exfoliating. What are these potential skin benefits on offer in the short term and long term. Okay sharon so what happens when we use something topically. Exfoliating the skin is we speed up the skin's natural process of exfoliating or we regulate the skin where it's not exfoliating enough by itself and bring it back to balance so two different things happen when we speed the exfoliating process up it encourages cells in the lowest start reproducing. We're moving dead ones off the surface so it sends a signal through the skin. You need to make more. And in that process happens. The production of collagen leston hollow onic acid. All the things that are beneficial to the skin or the things we want. That's right exactly

Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case
"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet.

"Tibet, one of the most beautiful places in the world thistles Timothy Hutton. The people of Tibet are in trouble. They're very culture is in jeopardy, but they still whip up in amazing fish Curry. Since 200 of US bought a Groupon dot com were each getting $30 with a Tibetan food for just $15 at Himalayan restaurant in Chicago. Save the money, A lot of great deals in your town. Wow. They can still whip up an amazing fish curry There had asked lately for having these problems, but I'm so happy because I'm getting a deal on their food. Well, the amazing fish curry, which it's about his land locked, isn't it? Looking at a map. But you just wondering, Uh, Wow. It doesn't matter. No, it really is. It is. It is landlocked. But you know, Nebraska is landlocked. And they have fish. Yeah, but they have frozen fish. You go to the market Trojan. Look that zits get back to the point where they're using this geopolitical. Dire situation to hawk coupons, just like you know, they had another ad. These group on people. It was Elizabeth Hurley. And it was an ad for it was for discounted Brazilian wax right. So the ad starts with her saying Not all deforestation is bad. As the Brazilian rain forest is being massacred. Yeah, And then the Tim Tebow add Now this was an interesting ad, and Tim Tebow, as you know, is very pro life and he Ran an ad where he's actually a rally against abortion and ad paid for by focus on the family. A very conservative Christian group now to Bo's commercial doesn't explicitly mention abortion. But here is the message. It tells the story of his birth, his mom pregnant when she comes down with amoebic dysentery during a missionary trip to Philippines. The doctors urged her to abort her fetus. And she ends up giving birth to one of the greatest football players ever. If you have anything, Tim Tebow is there is that needless to say, there was an uproar after the commercial aired, Tebow did not back down. The and focus on the family said We don't understand the problem and so clearly a pro life ad and that was kind of interesting. And do. I didn't hear it. We can actually hear it and see how.

What's Happening In The UK's Mental Health Wards Right Now?
"Today. We're going to be trusting to john. Barry waldren is a staff nurse at some time trees. Healthcare and the host of the podcast. This is actually the second time we've been chatting to him. We had shot to him back in september last year. If you want to listen to that original one it's called working in a mental health facility. So today we're going to be talking to him about what life is like in a secure psychiatric hospital during the pandemic the patients and stuff. You've been before but for those listeners. You didn't hit last episode. Could you start by telling us about your work. What you d please. Yes so. I was this time last year. Which seems like a long time ago but i'm by memento health nurse. I work in a secure mental health facility looking off. The patients have been sectioned. And i've been lucky enough to be involved in a podcast that features then patients and the stall on the story. The whole idea of the podcast is to try and reduce the stigma around mental illness particularly men with hospitals. So i think there's a lot of of misapprehensions and confusion of what happens in these places and people tend to focus on the kind of the hollywood hollywood version of what the faces a lot. Robin reality of them is so. Can you tell us a bit about what it's been like in those until this past year i've might from the start Gung three to the lockdowns and now sort of looking voted the next year well I think it's been tough like tough for everyone but particularly knows what was. I think we're now in the second. Look down on me. Personnel found the second. One way harder i think the first one we of really what we were gonna get inform. People didn't really know what was going to happen but this one we knew what was going to happen has been incredibly tough. So how's it affected patients. Because i think people might assume that if people weren't hospital denied it it might not necessarily be kind of affected by the pandemic. But can you tell us a bit about how they have been what i suppose we had kind of two facets of the immediate one really overseas looking off the wellbeing of the patients that physical health. So you know. Everybody has to wear malls because we had a look off to the physical wellbeing of the patients. You don't want the gaining tibet involvement. And i was very lucky. I war that there was no patients directly affected card but we were affected by the measures. The lockdown and its patients can leave But i think probably the two main aspects of the first aspect we had was we do have a lot patients that have Delusions and sometimes they're paranoid nova see if they see installed coming burn. Mosques can be quite scary and quite doing it for though i mean. It's scary in doing for us seeing someone with a moscow initially So the people that may be all struggling with a mental health. It could be worse. I realized myself how. How often i use my show expressions to kind of one thinking and you can't do that in a mosque and it's really really tough. And so that was that was really hard for the patients trying to cross that kind of aspect of it. And obviously i'd say. The secondary aspect was the lockdown measures. So law of patience. They used to have leave. You know these out to town visits a lot and during the first lockdown that will stop and that was really difficult. Yeah i'm sure Because when you're in a unit you do really rely on may be seeing parents or friends foes into kind of keep going. Don't you absolutely. I mean typically all patients. Sometimes i might be quite far away from where they original hermes and then like maybe once a month maybe once every couple of months and to have that taken away that that's really hard obviously we can still use video links and phone calls on things but it. It's still quite saying. See the person in real life. How's it been in terms of things like bed that sorry econo- shoe member if it's a is it a private hospital or a through pass the yes it is yes. So it's like a charity hospital. You have the Most of the patients in may be in patients. Yeah yeah i think. I mean plus. I've this whole thing i've been reading quite worried about Sort of the long term effect on people's mental health. But also just as it's been going on whether people have been able to to get into units house. Have you had any sort of by dave. That's all od. Just sort of. Have your sets number changed. I literally just read some interesting stuff about this yesterday. And i think admissions to mental health units things will actually be reduced over the the pandemic think they done some research where they found that people In the stolen so many initially happening people tend not to Who have a boost sometime in the mental health. But i think before and after it is where. We're really gonna see fakes. So i mean we were very lucky in terms of all admissions. Everything slow down a bit. Really because i guess What you call it. Mental health workers going to see patients megawatts. You'll maybe people weren't being referred much as much the emissions actually reduced so we were lucky in that case. But i think we're gonna see it now. I think now particularly when we're gonna see the surge if you like in people having these forums.
The Dalai Lama Offers A Warning On Climate Change
"Tibet's spiritual leader. The dalai lama is eighty five and he wants to warn us about something. I talked to him recently. He was at his home in dharamsala india wearing his red and orange robes sitting in front of the big tv screen so across continents. We could see each other. Hello your holiness. our you thank you. Thank you for being here this. He's just written a book about climate. Change called our only home. Well 'cause this planet is only a home now information. I hurt on moon. Also some water but try to settle their impossible so doubtful. Now we have to take care of our own planet. Logical trees are sacred in buddhism. They sheltered buddha his birth his enlightenment and his death and the mountains the himalayas whose backdrop the dalai lama lives there. Glaciers are melting and billions of people in china and india depend on them for water. I asked him what's one step any ordinary person could take and he said we eat a lot of meat. Not only question of the censo- low these animal itself. You civility bent for ecology so invest too. Much eat meat. Of course we also a nonvege- stadion so the be pham. Ideally feels very uncomfortable. Laws double and only four foot. We should promote vegetarians as much as two he can. He doesn't see the world in terms of countries and he wishes we wouldn't either. Our mother earth he says is teaching us a lesson in universal responsibility and so he'd probably be pleased that president elect joe biden has promised to re enter the paris climate accord three years ago. When the trump administration withdrew from that agreement. The dalai lama was stunned. When i heard that if you really said you see i did some mistake. Designed from the beginning then the president of america. He mentioned a miracle. I i feel disagreement. America the leading nation of free world so america if she should tink not just america first america have greater potentially making contribution for happier world. Some of this might seem so urgent because he's not young anymore. He's aware of this. It's been on his mind in buddhist tradition. He would pick the next doll. I lama and then reincarnate into that body but china also wants to pick the leader. China of course occupies tibet and so he wonders whether a dalai lama is necessary at the time of death to buddhist leaders should have is a serious discussion. Better though is you should continue or not if country you then individual tradition dissimilarity is some leader not why nation but the airedale one. Good scholar could practitioner. Is it become the head. So that's not wind business. My business could take care myself. Yes indeed your holiness. Thank you for taking the time to do this. I really appreciate it. thank you take. Good care bye-bye tibet spiritual leader. The dalai lama speaking to us from dharamsala
At a Crossroads? China-India Nuclear Relations After the Border Clash
"We start the program tracking one of the most potentially SA- serious spot points globally the ongoing hostilities between the nuclear-armed countries, India and China earlier this week they discharged weapons that each other for the first time in forty five years as a four month standoff between their armed forces escalated into warning shots in the western Himalayas. The skirmishes worryingly reminiscent of the circumstances surrounding the beginning of a war between the two in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two. Yesterday. The foreign ministers of the two countries met in Russia in a bid to defuse the military standoff Jonah Slater New Delhi Bureau chief for The Washington Post and Isabel Hilton China dialogue join me on the line now. Thanks both for for joining us is about what was behind this most recent exchange of shots. That rather depends who you believe I mean one. Of the meeting that has taken place in Moscow, which has been some extent. Calming is that neither side will acknowledge any wrongdoing and indeed continue to blame the other. There is a very in general terms there isn't defined line of actual, control? The seem to be signs that the past three or four months across quite a a a length of it. So not just in one sector, China has been a pushing the actual you know situation on the ground by crossing the line of Control China, accuse his India doing the same thing in this most recent incidents and says that it had to fire shots in the ad to deter what was Indian aggression India has said over the repeated incidents over the past few months that China has advanced and then has not on a promises to retreat. So we now have quite an extended standoff which began in the in the West and sector. But has now extended to the eastern sector to what in your Natural Pradesh which to southern. Tibet. So it's a sustained standoff still during the what more do we know about the outcome of the meeting between the two men yesterday Well we know that they met for two and a half hours a lengthy meeting their first in person meetings since the crisis began Jason Curve India's foreign minister is a is a former ambassador to China. He has deep experience there. But in terms of outcomes, what we basically have is an agreement to continue talking it's not nothing but it's definitely not a breakthrough I mean Isabel do you think there's any real appetite for compromise and given China's current aggressive stance globally will one be trying to dial it down I think that I don't see very much appetite for compromise on either side we all you have is highly nationals governments which both. Set great store on territorial integrity and and then of course, you come to the sensitive point where the territories real defined and then you have a you know constant potential for confrontation. But if you add to that I mean what one thing that is very different from in in this border confrontation with other areas of conflict China like the South China Sea for example, where were you have because it's accessible and and territory marine territory that's used by lots of different kinds of people in people from from different countries, you can enact a conflict at a lower level if you like using fishing boats or or customs boats, and you don't actually have to use your main forces. But this is highly inaccessible territory. The only people who are out there really are our armed forces and they have increased. Both sides have increased the presence of their forces really dramatically in the last few months, and in the last few years, they have increased access to the border by building infrastructure building roads and railway building roads rather So you have the potential to mobilize both heavy weaponry and larger numbers of troops When you have a moment like this, do strategically, I would say that China is trying to discourage India from. Joining in a mall full blooded way any anti-chinese coalition organized by the United States so the has been quite a warm relationship between Modiin trump as we know, and and the question is how far India will take this because that could be a Catholic. And during this meeting, come about because the to happened to be in Moscow anyway or is Russia playing the piece Burqa. Well. Both of them would have been at this meeting, but it does seem that Russia is playing a little bit of a role of convener here as a country that. Ostensibly would like to see tensions reduce. It has constructive relationships with both countries there have been reports in the Indian media suggesting that I'm sorry that Russia was doing some quiet diplomacy behind the scenes earlier in this crisis but I think the these these two men obviously would have been there anyway just comes at a very. Sensitive, sensitive, and important time. It's about what's in it for? Would I guess it's less less difficulty in the neighborhood they do as we've heard have rush the Russians do have constructive relations Russia likes to be seen as a broker these days I mean the whole trajectory of Putin's kind of outward posture has been to assert Russia's important so to be able to mediate between a traditional friend India and. country. Rival with whom relations little complicate it China would greatly enhanced prestige. One of the difficulties is that what we know from the reorganization, for example, the Chinese military which is put sheeting. Very firmly, inconspicuously in command, we need to assume I think that decision is made about deployment of troops and our posture go very much to the top So you know without a signal from the tall, the foreign ministers of my decide couldn't actually resolve this. Yeah. How do you think this fits in with the the general foreign policy aims of India. I don't think expected crisis with China I. think that was not part of its. Foreign Policy Goals as Isabelle was speaking about no, India is. Wary of China's rise, it has been drawing closer to the United States and also to this grouping called the Quad, which includes the United States Japan and Australia this one of the interesting aspects about this crisis with China along the line of actual control is that India says at least that it's at a loss to understand why China is doing this it repeated that again today that. Shot, the tiny side has not provided a credible explanation for this deployment. Jay Shankar, the foreign minister a few days ago said repeated that India's is a little bit flummoxed here, and so if China is sending a message that it doesn't want India to draw closer to the United States, India's not really getting the message quite clearly So I think that's one of the strange parts about this entire episode, which is we don't India claims at least not really understand what China's motivations are for this. Quite significant deployment along the line of actual control which began in April and then Burst into actual skirmishes, skirmishes in May, and then the deadliest violence between the two countries and more than fifty years in June. I mean Isabel attorneys right WH- one can't really see what's in it for China I. Mean as you say, this is an area where there's really not very much. It's inaccessible the only people there are the soldiers. What's the point? I think the point is is partly to shore up she gene pins reputation at home is a vigorous defender of China's global position and Chinese sovereignty, and you might well argue that that sovereignty over a few miles of inaccessible mountain compass matter but they matter symbolically domestically in China. It also might be I mean, we've seen a passion of a very assertive behavior. Put it no more strongly from China pretty much since the coronavirus outbreak and a lot of you know if you look across the piece it what's been going on there had been provocations in around Taiwan with you with Chinese. Military flights crossing into Taiwanese airspace very recently and and we have you know I, think for the first time that I can recall in. Since the sixties we have on this board, we have confrontations in both the important western sector and the equally important eastern sector. Now, that's that's kind of unusual that does signal a much more firm intent to send a message even if it's not a message that India understand. So it may be a message that's being directed to the Chinese public that you know we can do this because we are bigger and stronger than India and we will continue to defend. China's position in the world.
China's Xi vows unceasing fight against Tibet separatism
"China's president has called for what's described as an impregnable fortress to stop separatism in Tibet Xi Jinping, speech, set out the country's policy direction intended to protect national unity, maintain stability, and educate the masses. Well, Isabel Hilton is the editor of China dialogue and has written extensively about Beijing's relationship with Tibet. Hello? Isabelle. Doing. Very. Well, thank you. Tell us what is this impregnable fortress. Well this is come out of the Communist Party Central Symposium on Tibet work, which is the you know the high level. It's the meeting that gathers together everyone who has anything to do with Tabet from security to economics to environment, and of course, the polit bureau is in attendance at the last one was five years ago. So it is quite important to understand the direction that things taking and I have to say it's not a particularly encouraging direction the the emphasis on a border security was not extensively publicized in China but I think that that is undoubtedly related to the continuing tensions with India, and we've seen a number of clashes along that border. But the other. Really important aspect of this statement is is really about hearts and minds, which has been a massive failure in terms of of Chinese occupation of Tibet and the the stress on patriotic education on the fact that monasteries must you know put put the party first and so on. All isses familiar but it's becoming more intense in terms of of of you know government propaganda and just simply failed over the years. So how does it intend to impose or bill this impregnable fortress to maintain not just stability but? Engage in those hearts and minds which which they find so important and what I think probably I'm sorry to say more repression it's. There is a relationship between what happens in Tibetan what happens in Xinjiang, which has lately had some more attention and but the body secretary who? Had A kinda panel up to consecutie system in Tibet then moved to Xinjiang to continue his work. So the security approach is very much the same and it is extremely tight security on on an absolute day to day level. So you know police boxes every few hundred yards kind of panopticon effect on on watching society for any kind of behavior that might be considered deviant. So that's one aspect of it and and the other oil done in the name of national security. and. Then the other aspect is the intense education and signification of Tibet. So it's been some years now since two Beden as a medium of instructions in schools was damaged and and you know there's heavy language pressure heavy cultural pressure on on Tibetans who are encouraged not to have a photographs of the delay in their homes but to her photographs of Xi. Jinping, instead to the the, it's really an an example of enhanced integration. Hitherto has been a policy in the People's Republic at least in name over SPEC for national minorities as they would call them. So Cultural Rights, language rights, and the idea that they could be in some sense autonomous and self governing. Now, that was never entirely implemented but at least it was official policy and that is now being abandoned really in favor of kind of. Han Chinese dominance in every aspect including culture and language, and how is that likely to be received in Tibet? Well. The evidence is that the more pressure the culture comes under in a way, the more people attached to it. So you know the most famous case was in nineteen eighty when when the reports from to bed to the center. Essentially said everyone's forgotten by the Dalai. Lama. They loved the Communist Party. It's all going swimmingly and it emboldened the central government to allow or to think about a visit from the delara sue the Dalai Lama sent. A representative. Group to inspect Tibet to see what conditions would like and as soon as rumors of these people's presence spread across to bet you thousands and thousands of people went to pay homage and his push notes into the hands and to weep and to go for the Dalai Lama. So you know the Chinese never been very good at reading. Tibetan sentiment and every time they criticized the Dalai Lama officially it sort of gives comfort to the Tibetans that. The Dalai Lama still matters and he still bad. So it's it's you know it's not a particularly helpful policy and the more that they cracked down on Tibet. The more Tibetan people feel more. They feel the difference and in a moment ago, you mentioned the fact that Tibet is stuck as well in terms of the relationship, the the very techy relationship that's being played out between India at the moment two degrees either side twenty used to bet. Well I think that this. That that's always I. Guess a problem you know the wasn't a border between India and China until the Chinese occupation of Tibet. So so now we have to Asian supervise and this border which is constantly disputed, which is unresolved and across which flow or manner of things including of course, people you know the flow of refugees to India from Tibet. has been a feature of the years the very large settlements of Tibetan refugees in India, which has given them pretty generous hospitality, the presence of the Dalai Lama in India. Then on the Indian side, you know there is anxiety about water supply because wall of. India's pretty much all of India's water supply comes from the Tibet Plateau, and there is constant fear in Indian security services that that the Chinese can somehow turn the top of which is unlikely but nevertheless it makes them deeply anxious. So there are any number of issues that that would need to be resolved in NFL comprehensive settlement. But at the moment you have to highly nationalistic governments each which is you postures vigorously over Tibet and I think that a settlement is not terribly likely Isabel. Indeed as ever for joining us on monocle twenty four, that was China dialogues is.
Tibetan Yoga for Health and Wellbeing
"Hi, Allie welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Madeo. Thank you very much for having me. I'm really excited to talk about we haven't had anybody on the podcast that is speaking directly to yoga and breath work in the way that you teach install very excited to have you today. Thank you I. You know excited and I, Love Hey House and. That last book of Tibet. The newer for health and wellbeing. This is my passion. So yes, excellent. Excellent. There's a there's a number of things I'd like to talk about with you today including your. Your advice on integrating meditation and Yoga into our everyday life and are busy schedule as well as your work with Yoga and breath work in a clinical medical sending including with your with cancer patients. But I, I like to ask you about how you got here how we got here with you, and maybe we can start with your own yoga and meditation training under your revered teachers in Nepal and India. So can you give us a brief version of of how you began your studies to help us situate where you're learning has is coming from Sure sure. Emmy see how brief I can. So really when with the Tibetan tradition, it really started when I in my first trip to India in nineteen, eighty nine. And I was really looking for teacher. I wasn't sure if it was going to be an Indian teacher Tibetan teacher I was more familiar with the teachers I did get to meet with Yuji Christian motifs of not the famous one JD. Wonderful Yuji Chris for more and more. And then some g my analogy, and then actually when I met the two BETTON SAT in La. It really started inspiring me and particularly the way that. They had this devotion to the picture of its own is a Lama and I have to admit I didn't know too much about His Holiness yet. But then doing the trip. It was when he was. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize I was actually cashier at that time I remember reading that in the US favor now it's like Wow so happy a give my mom. My Dad had been awarded the prize and and and I said, I need to meet this man. In fact that evening they showed on the Indian TV. Heart of Tibet. That I la that was actually the forward or was by pressing Carter. And I. So I went from touch me to down silos where the Delilah was. It was. During that time, he was the fortieth anniversary of the children village. That's the first time I saw him talk. Then I went for you know a public interview and I kind of. was trying to be there as much as I could and at the same time I got my first. Personal teacher, which was you should origin. Bodies, Yogi. And he was particularly into the tradition of true and. Whether he was the Weatherman for the Dalai Lama. and. I started training with them I. Did my longer with him or started the non right ended up seventy slater finishing That really led me to come back towards t Tina where I'm originally from. And really start devoting a lot of time to practice and then was in ninety one that. I, I met a number no group chain that he came to Argentina I nine, hundred ninety and I am Alejandra can I can I just mention here that that sort of what you're talking about a little bit is that when the Tibet you mentioned that you met the Delami in in in northern India in Dharamsala. And this is after for our listeners who don't know the when the Dalai Lama a came into exile when he left Bet in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, he and about two, hundred thousand. Refugees settled in the northern regions of India and where the Dalai Lama lived was Dharmsala, and so that was one of the first places that you went to in. That is sort of this hub of the Tibetan diaspora that is sort of surrounds the Dalai Lama, and then eventually Tibetans have gone of course throughout the world and there's two. Betton. Buddhist. Centers throughout the world and so you were kind of a beneficiary. You came along in nineteen, eighty, nine, nineteen ninety and started studying with some of these teachers who weren't only in India around the dilemma. But who had gone elsewhere you mentioned non-pwi Norbu Rhumba Jay who had gone to to Italy, and then there were other centers where you were living in Argentina. Yes, and so I. I did consider you know for for some time Don, Sala my second home I spend many months there. And that's where actually ish adorned pitches monastery wall. So. As, you said Dharamsala was this hub and I really considered my second home. I spent many months there intermittently going from there to other places and back, and that is really were you had his monastery and and. So meeting the Dalai Lama and trying to be as much as possible with them. But also really having a personal teacher like you should was really important to me so that when I came back to Argentina that I felt there was no one there in luckily I was wrong was a small. Karma Kagyu Center. And also kind of a unique center the first teacher I met when when I go towards. Metering And then Nunca Norman as I mentioned the Nunca over pitcher was a big change for me. In the way he taught. So the Tony Brooke he brought the teachings. Into everyday
