"They require keeping things in memory keeping state and memory. So if you don't want to reload these things every time, then it's much better to use render and rude also has some other limitations around elixir. So that's kind of how we think about some of these things. And a lot of it is driven by user feedback really. We have an open public feature request board, and we also list all the things we're working on right now and things that we have planned. So if you go to feedback dot render dot com, you can see that list. And it's a great way for our community to give us feedback on what they would like to see next. And it's a long list. It never stops growing because people want us to build everything that AWS has. But it's great to see because there's a lot of user engagement and people love what they see already, and they want more of it. Have there been any particular celebrated releases? I don't know a database or something like that that's brought a lot of interest. Yeah, so the first time we might have been the first cloud provider to do this, but we supported Postgres 14 on launch day and going forward. I think we're going to support all new releases on launch day as well. But there are other things like launching a new region. So we have a Frankfurt region. But there are a lot of people in the apac part of the world where they want a region in Tokyo or Singapore or Sydney. And there have been asking for it for a while. And I just want if you're listening and you are one of those people, please know that we're launching those things soon. And by soon, I mean a matter of months as opposed to a year from now. Does that mean you're building out a physical data center or just setting up the right appropriate virtual but local instances? We're not building our data centers. It's too early for us to do that. And we really want to focus on giving people access to the functionality that they need. And even functionality that they might not think they need, but they do. So one example of this is every company wants to have some notion of canary deploys. And it's something render can offer relatively easily given how we built out our infrastructure. And so obviously we are a small team. We're growing quickly, but our bandwidth is limited. And we'd rather spend that bandwidth on giving people more ways to run their apps and more features in the platform itself or more integrations with other things that are using compared to trying to optimize our costs by running on data centers. Because our users don't really care about that. They just want their apps to be up and running and scalable and secure at all times. I noticed from reading some things on the website, there's a lot of examples in how you can get much better pricing on render compared to site like Heroku, even as much as 50% reduction, which actually seems like a lot. That's not just, oh, it's Salesforce that can gouge everybody. That's a big margin. Is there a technology advancement that you have that they don't have that makes that possible? So definitely I think there is something to being able to pack machines more efficiently that I think Heroku, at least until recently, perhaps was not doing or they were, but maybe not as officially. And they have a lot of historical baggage. And I think that they also, from what I've heard, again, given the Heroku employees who migrated over to us, or who have joined from what I'm hearing. I think there's just isn't a lot of motivation to keep Heroku competitive or to add new features. Everyone in the industry knows that Heroku is stagnant and kind of on a slow path down. And that's where I think it's not just about pricing for render. It's also about continuing to add new features and giving you the best of the advances that we're seeing in infrastructure and exposing them to you in a way that doesn't require you to have a PhD in managing AWS. Are there any of those features on the road map you're able to talk about? Yeah, so like I said, our road map is actually public, but new regions are coming. We just launched a free tier, which is something that was perhaps the biggest thing that was missing on render compared to all of the cloud providers. I realized that render has not had a free tier while every other cloud providers had one of some sort for the last three years. And so we just launched it and it's been really well received by our users. But in terms of new features that we're integrating, I think serverless support is another big one where we are running workloads kind of already in a serverless manner for our free tier, and we expect to roll that functionality out to more applications where you can scale to zero or you can run a lot of threads in.

"Of the FBI. She was held in custody for a year. During which time, the FBI and the military government under Douglas MacArthur conducted an investigation, interviewing hundreds of people, including the POWs that worked on her show. They also dug up hundreds of documents to see if she had committed any crimes. After a year she was released after the FBI and U.S. counterintelligence service, found no evidence of wrongdoing. However, this wasn't the end of her problems. Back in the U.S., the public led by newspaper columnist Walter Winchell, campaigned to have her tried for treason. In 1948, she was re arrested in Japan and returned to the U.S. to stand trial. And here I need to move the story from Japan to Germany.

She eventually left the United States in 1929 to live in Paris for 6 months. In 1933, she left the United States again, going to Algeria to work for a dressmaker, and then landed in Dresden Germany to study music and teach English. In 1940, she got a job with German state radio as an announcer. In 1941, the United States advised all Americans to leave Germany. But by that time she was engaged to a German national who wouldn't marry her if she returned to the U.S.. When war broke out in late 1941, she couldn't go back if she wanted to. In 1941, Gilles was recruited into hosting a show called home sweet home, which had popular music and spent a lot of time telling soldiers how their sweethearts back home were being unfaithful to them.

Fumio Kishida wins Japan leadership race, setting him up to become prime minister

"Japan's ruling liberal democratic party or ldp held its leadership runoff election. The last round was between two former foreign ministers. Kishida fumio and kotaro. Mr kushida came out on top. The ldp has dominated japanese politics since its founding in the nineteen fifties. So the party's new. President will be the country's new prime minister when tsuyoshi he steps down toy so in his victory speech. Mr kishida said that from today. I will with all of my energy. Get straight to work. How and where he will channel that energy though is still something of an open question as is how much. The electorate will support him. This year's election for the presidency was more unpredictable than most heading into the vote. Today there was some some genuine uncertainty about who would emerge the victor noah. Sneider is the economists. Tokyo bureau chief but this kind of free for all uncertain circus like for the mvp at least election campaign. I think really master distracted from deeper and more worrying trend in japanese politics namely growing voter apathy and disillusionment from the political process and given that apathy. How do you think it is that. Mr kishida came out on top. The dynamics of this election were a bit complicated. But let's unpack them. Konno tato former foreign and defense minister was the favourite in public and the favourite amongst younger diet members in the ldp who saw him as potentially more transformative figure who also crucially might help them keep their jobs in elections that are looming in later. This fall masan however is unpopular amongst. The party's old guard and and they see him sort of unreliable uncontrollable. He has a reputation for being a bit of a maverick so he won. The the vote of the rank and file in the first round of the party's election but he didn't win enough support amongst his colleagues to win the election outright so it went into a second round run-off there to she support from within the party really proved decisive. It is i think a result that reflects the enduring strength of the ldp's establishment and is in some ways the kind of rebuke of public

U.S. Gymnasts Say FBI Failed to Protect Them From Sexual Abuse

"Four american gymnast. Simone biles michaela maroney aly rice. Men and maggie nichols sat in front of the senate yesterday. Engaged emotional testimony about the abuse.

I don't want another young gymnast. Olympic athlete or any individual to experience the horror that i and hundreds of others have endured before during and continuing to this day in the week of the larry nassar abuse. She said the scars of this horrific abuse continue and the impact will never be over michaela. Maroni told a story about sitting on her bedroom floor back in twenty fifteen and talking to the fbi over the phone and telling them all of the details of everything that had happened to her and then told the f. b. i. About tokyo the day he gave me a sleeping pill for the plane. Ride to then work on me. Later that night that evening i was naked completely alone with him on top of me molesting me for hours. I began crying at the memory over the phone. And there was just dead silence. I was so shocked at the agents silence and disregard for my trauma. After that minute of silence he asked is that all advocates for the young women. Say as many as one hundred twenty athletes may have been abused by nasser. they says l. erased men nassir found more than one hundred new victims to molest serving innocent children up to a pedophile on a silver platter. All we needed was one adult to do the right thing. I don't know if you guys saw this part of her testimony but she told a story about sitting with an fbi agent and him trying to convince her that everything that had happened. Wasn't that bad.

The Monkey Bridge in Ōtsuki, Yamanashi Prefecture

The Monkey Bridge in Ōtsuki, Yamanashi Prefecture

"Sometimes an item or building jumps out of the story and into reality in japan. For example. there's a bridge with tall tale behind it. About fifty miles from tokyo. In yamanashi prefecture is the city of otsuki. Its history dates all the way back to the jomon period between fourteen thousand three hundred bc. The city was nearly wiped off the map in nineteen forty five two days before the end of world war two following a bombing by the united states but it was able to bounce back after two other towns and four villages combined to form a new rookie in nineteen fifty four. Despite hundreds of years of change and turmoil including near extinction one of the city's lasting treasures is the sorrow hashi bridge also known as the monkey bridge. It's listed as one of the six official places of scenic beauty in japan and those who cross the gorge know that it's a well earned designation although no one knows exactly when the bridge was built an early military document from fourteen seventy nine does mention its existence. It is supported by four pairs of cantilever beams underneath which are embedded directly into the cliff on each side. The beams are also tended with their own peaked roofs to keep the rain and other debris away while the actual center of the bridge is held up by an arch. Of course a bridge doesn't wind up in the cabinet of curiosities simply because it's beautiful. No it's the reason for its nickname that elevates it from a basic way of crossing the river into an architectural marvel according to the legend the monkey bridge earned. Its name in one of two ways. The first comes from a story that dates back to the seventh century. Which told of a couple who desperately needed to cross the gorge with no bridge in place at the time monkeys living in the surrounding forest emerged and used their bodies to form a makeshift bridge. So that the couple could cross safely. A gardener named sheera echo watched all of this happen so he took it upon himself to build a permanent bridge so that others could cross the gorge easily and without any help from the local

Aisha Praught Leer on Qualifying for Team Jamaica for the Tokyo Games

"The first thing that i actually want to get into and i think we've probably talked about this before. But can you explain to us the process of being on team jamaica. Because we know that you compete for jamaica. We also know that every country has a different way of picking their olympic teams in different sports but especially in track and field. So can you tell us how you earn your spot to get to run that. Fifteen hundred tokyo for team jamaica. Yes so jamaica has child system that is nearly identical to the us. Top three at the trials plus a qualifying mark or inacceptable World ranking on the descending order list gives you your spot to the olympics or whatever team might situation gets a bit unique. Because i am as of this moment. The only runner above fifteen hundred meters that has internationally competitive times and can hit national can hit international standards or be accepted on world ranking so often timelines. It's up to whether or not other people sign up for the trials It's it's an open system for jamaica. There are. i mean. There are standards to to enter the trials. But they're bit slower markedly slower than than the standards in the us And it's just an open registration system and it's always very hanway for me Whether or not occupied trials. I competed at the trials in twenty fifteen. I ran the fifteen hundred Even i went on to race. The siebel chase iran the shortest distance that i thought other people would sign up for which is the fifteen hundred. So did that in twenty fifteen there were three. Other competitors I won the race. And i ended up lapping. A woman in the race A masters runner and since two thousand fifteen. No-one has entered the fifteen hundred jamaica at and that means that. I have not competed at the trials since two thousand fifteen so i was just waiting on bated breath to see if anybody would register for the trials this year in the fifteen hundred so that i could go and compete at trials You know it's. It's a blessing in a curse to not have to compete at your trials. It allows me to take on other Competitive opportunities are not speaking for trials. But you also don't get to race with the opportunity to come national

"Weird i. Everybody's favorite car is is bow wells. Hope mobile two thousand five and also like what is it a mazda. Rx7 vale line. I think they call it on orange and black are. He's drifting through the streets at tokyo during during his crash scene. Yeah i think that's a great one as for favorite lines early on sean says to you said her name cindy right. This was the race. it's not the ride. It's the writer. Says that like really early in the movie really early house. A good one. And i do love when dom shows up and him and sean talking before these before the race. Sean says to dom the ten second race. I got nothing but time. Great line guys time magazine. But i was like dom man. You're in the movie for like two minutes and you get a classic line off. Yep okay that's good. Let's get the furious part of the podcast things we hated to see whatever. Jd will start with you. What was your least favorite part of a movie. You really liked here in tokyo drift. Wiler couple of weird moments like the very beginning of the movie. There's this The scene where this kid is fat. Kids getting bullied right getting rape painted on them. And we see sean sort of poke. Poke his head around the corner. What's going on. And then he just sort of ignores it and goes back. So i know so weird weird. Yeah and never really paid off except i was thinking after. Maybe that's why he comes to our defense on the roof when he's getting beat up over the ipod right. Maybe like changed his ways a little bit but just friends with twinkie like right. We don't know if he's friends with this kid. That's getting his chest paint exactly and it's like shot. It's because it's the. It's like that super slow. Just it's just weird apart. Yeah yeah so. I don't know. Or maybe it's just establishes him as like a mercenary type. Like i'm only in whatever i'm doing it's to help me and that's it. So may so that part sort of was weird and then that character is pretty wooden. I mean he's he's panned that performance by what's his name lewis black. Lucas is is quite wooden. And it's like There's not much doesn't seem to be a lot of depth there. There's part of this movie totally you kind of. Forget about him even though he's the he's the the lead. But maybe i'm over thinking this but maybe that's by design because he's just such a when i described my dog to people like he's a brown dog he is if you're playing video game as a dog. He's the default dog right. he's he doesn't have a specific greed is just and then you start adding stuff to to right to make them interesting right. That's my dog and that is shown in this movie and he's just like an empty. Shell like an avatar for us. We're sean right leg. So we're injecting our personality into into sean and we're living this experience through sean. I mean that's charitable as. I'm going to be about it but i don't think it's his fault as the actors fault necessarily but he's just not very well written or well thought out and ultimately it doesn't really matter but what about you trae what made you furious. Jd lucas black is pretty bad. Just not much charisma. The man makes paul walker.

"That's what that was bursting his way out of the car. Laura says to me as their unveiling it what is that like a whole car. Just straight up. The incredible hulk made into a car. But we never see it driven balance. A bummer. to me we never see a driven but the man's got a nice car. Yeah it does look nice but when it comes out when you see it and you can sort of see through the window into the interior. It's got they'll this for everywhere. And i was just like now. I'm out your. I liked the car but the the interior of it is just shag everywhere. It stinks in there. There's no way it does not stink in there. Just just boy. China cars just hold stink and especially if there's a carpet and whatever and it was all over the place but yeah you're right trey i. I kinda just didn't realize that the next scene we see them driving a different car right like do we. How do they get up in the whole car theft. That's maybe the only driving's and we definitely never see. What did you say. his name is. Twitter byles name and this. We never see him racing But i guess they are rolling through the first tokyo race meeting the people seeing the scene. Yeah yeah yeah so. We're at this parking garage where we're at. And this is where. Sean has his first confrontation with takashi who is known s the drift king decay for sure. Yeah and of course. Sean can't help himself man. he's talking to neela. Who is takashi. Girlfriend we learn and who is also one of his classmates. I know sort of glossed over that. There was the the first meeting between the two the eye contact in class where he goes in for the first time and i guess the big payoff of that scene is. He's wearing a shoes and slippers on exactly right but they have an immediate immediate connection. Yeah i gotta say neela by far the most attractive female lead. We've had in any of these three movies by a mile. Beautiful beautiful woman. So i can see why sean was instantly attracted to her. So yeah. They get into it though because takashi doing like that's my girl so what happens well you guessed About it got race. You're talking to my girl we're racing that's how it goes and this is strange to me. Sean doesn't know anybody he knows drink. That's it and he's going to raise some doesn't have a car. You would think twinkled like ride. The hulk gives the whole ago. Sure but no instead he gets a two thousand one nissan from a racer named hunt.

"Saifi the paralympics. Starting on monday after a lot of upheaval and doubts that that even go ahead. It must've been such a relief for you to find out you're going to tokyo after all. Yeah it was well. I mean we got selected at the end of may. So i knew from the end of may the i was selected to go but actually making it on the fly was another another story. Because you know we've got covert that's looming over us all the time and then the moment of watching the olympics and i think it becomes real at the closing ceremony of the olympics. Because then it's like right. There's nothing else to watch everything. Stone when next is staggering to think that it was only in twenty twelve before the london olympics that you just started getting into wheelchair basketball and when you look back to that time the paralympics were in a very different place. How much you think. Public perception has changed. They were massively. But since then i think there was a massive spike. Initially after linden the paralympics were seen as equal. I think that's all well and good in those moments but actually for disability sport. You don't see our sport especially wheelchair basketball. You know any other time really. The coverage is in great our even our world championships and european championships. Out streamed as well as i personally think they should ban are probably biased but one in four people of our population have a disability and we are not represented one in four times a wheel. Trust all and it's like oh welcome for trying. No i train this hard as olympian does. I'm a paralympian. And i'm proud of that and i you know work hard to to get there and so for me this still work to be done and so how would actually feel to win a medal in tokyo all winning a medal. Paralympic medal is honestly. My biggest dream is biggest goal in life and obviously gold would be the absolute pinnacle book. Success for us would come in the form of a medal because we never one one before we've got world silver european silver that the best achievements that we've have as a team so far. We came fourth in rio so we were that team. That was just one place you know. Missed it just by one place. So i think it just made me so much more hungry. I suppose for what has been now five years of preparation into tokyo. And i think we're ready. I think we're in a great place and quietly confident going into these games that we've got really good chance of bringing home a medal and honestly i've thought about it already where when i put it. What would i do frame man. When i tell you i feel like i need to like sleep with it for a week or something at least just to make sure that it was actually real. Maybe i should make something like tom daley to put it in. Yeah i mean. I'm keeping my fingers tightly crossed. That success comes out way and we've worked really hard so whatever happens really proud of this team. I feel sixteen year. old self. could see now. what would you think. Oh i think should be really proud. I think should be yeah. She'd be happy and she saw think. Wow it does alter now all right. In the end overcoming adversity it's possible and living fulfilling and happy an amazing life afterwards. he's also more than possible so it was such a pleasure to speak to you. Thank you so much. And obviously we wishing you so much good luck. We're gonna be really hard for you back at home. Thank you so much. I really appreciate the support..

"So the delayed twenty twenty tokyo olympics happened the other week complete with thirty three sports and three hundred thirty nine events including four new sports and to discontinued sports. Brought back from the dead. That's the funny thing about the olympic games. The games themselves change almost every time in terms of new events. You might have seen the karate skateboarding sport climbing or serving you might have. I didn't what i saw. The olympics was mostly clips on my favorite memes site. The resurrected sports were baseball and softball. Last seen at the two thousand eight beijing olympics the international olympic committee had decided to make a commitment to the youth by bringing sports to them in urban environments. A pretty new point of view for the i. O. c. as well as to increase engagement for youth fans who are passionate about different sports from all over the world or dispassionate about sports as a whole these sports are also not coincidentally quite popular in japan so who decides what stays in. What goes that would be the aforementioned international olympic committee they oversee all aspects of the olympic. Games they run in it in the common parlance of the associations. Ninety nine members many are former athletes or current leaders in athletics from all over the world bonus fact one of the founders of buffalo wild wings was a lifelong figure skater who served on the ioc for a time. The ios's executive board proposes which sports will be included and the rest of the votes on them. A sport must cut certain muster to sway. Those voters there are five factors split into a further thirty five criteria. Such as. How long has the sport existed. How popular is the sport in the host country. How much would it cost to hold and broadcast the event and how much value the sport would be to the olympic legacy.

Then it was. Okay we have a little time to wait and see what's going to happen. In basically since march twenty twenty. It's been a dance of will the happen. Audie olympics happened the virus cases. Can we have an olympics with this virus going on can we have an olympics of the population is in vaccinated. Can we do this safely. Why isn't anyone stopping. This wire. Duar we being held hostage in have been protested. The big san. There's been posed where people wanted to cancel it and i think as the inevitability of the happened at you saw a little bit more of a warming toward the games which i think some of that's probably fatigue where it's going to happen what we do maybe we can just grin and bear it and that sort of thing so i can understand that sense of inevitability of fatigue but at the same time we also just heard this week. The ceo of the tokyo olympics organizing committee saying that the games could still be cancelled. Jason if there is a spike in cova cases so how realistic do you think that scenario is today..

"I know certainly at some point that the public polling around this very low right like a lot of people didn't want the olympics on monday. The asahi shimbun newspaper published a survey of more than fourteen hundred. People and found two thirds. Do not believe japan can host a safe insecure olympics. God's but what's your sense of of how the japanese public is feeling now. Well i mean. I i i keep thinking back to when tokyo one the bit talk you. It was really emotional. That was a really big deal the last time. Tokyo held the games in nineteen sixty four. This was this was japan's coming out. After the you know the devastation and the defeat of the second world war they rebuilt the city for those olympics. You drive on roads right now. That happened because of the sixty. Four games at national united states amazon. joining hands. very inspiring excitement gentleman. Saturday'll you would have to be here actually say to really understand the friendship so tokyo twenty twenty was going to be this rebirth. You know and they were so excited. It was sort of rebuilding. After the horror of fukushima earthquake turns nami nuclear accident after you know a lot of economic stagnation this was going to be there in nineteen sixty four again. There was like so much writing on and they were so excited and then and then of course. The world stops spinning right. And then you started to see this anti-olympic sentiment and usually you know. There's a pattern to the olympics. The week before everything is terrible but once it cauldrons lid it gets really busy you know. And it's the stories of the athletes had takeover. But something feels different about this one. And i spoke with dick pound last night. He's the most senior member of the ioc said canadian and he said this is the thing that keeps him staring at the ceiling at night. Which is that this time that feeling will linger be worried if my expectation that wants the game start. Public opinion is going to shift. I'm worried that that might not happen. The social media saying this. This is going to happen. This is going to happen. And that's not going to happen if people see just totally uninformed and they can become irrelevant jimmy. There's no touchstone for people i. I went to the rehearsal for the opening ceremony. And you know. The aren't going to be any japanese spectators in there at all. This huge beautiful stadium built on the site of the nineteen sixty four stadium everything so poignant and it's pretty quiet in there but there are little rings there's a there's an olympic rings right beside the entrance on a patch of artificial turf and people are lining up to take their pictures beside it and i find it very sad because the what will be the cauldron that people love to go and visit is now blocked off. Because they don't want people gathering there they can't go into this into the stadium. They have to watch on television. So they're one touch point is just the rinks. They're paying for these olympics. I'm just not sure what they're getting out of them. At this point. I really do hope that. At some point in the coming days we will we will get to hear some other narratives. Come out of this. Because i love the olympics. I mean i. I am really privileged. This is my six olympics to cover. And i i love it for the moms and dads you know i. I love it for watching families who have invested everything time money heart a lot of heartache into their kids in that moment standing there and watching watching helplessly but so lovingly. In that moment it is an extraordinary thing to watch. And while the moms and dads are going to have to be watching on television and connected by zoom.

"And you'd want to buy fisher so we can both agree that that that's a winner. I'm looking at the notes that have been sent over and i'm guessing That you've written him jimmy. Because this is a very jamie wards phrase says worst and it says canada and just next to it says truly awful. So i'm going to click through to the link. I'm seeing a lot of denim. I'm seeing graffiti. I'm already feeling uncomfortable. What's going on with canada's uniform. Yes those those were my words unfortunately your this is quite a good following from the skateboarding. Point because that one's showed is what happens when you try to be young and cool and you get it right. That's what we've seen with the skateboarding uniforms. What we're seeing is when you try to be kind of young and cool and edgy and you get it wrong. These uniforms have had a lot of press. I'm sure a lot of painful of saying them and which they had but they basically done a play on the canadian tuxedo with. We see kind of famous for like denim jackets. There's nothing wrong with a denim jacket. Nothing wrong with some double denim. It's more just how they've decorated jockettes. So they've there's like graffiti on the back in read. That says like tokyo in canada but the lead is kind of mixed about it just a lot of graphics printed all over the place. It's quite punkish quite aggressive. Which seems to be odd for the olympics. i think they also just look naff. They look like someone much older has done. What they think kids are wearing. These days has just kind of missed it. that were designed by hudson's bay huge canadian retailer. And yeah i just think it's tried to be youthful and cool and edgy. And that just aren't they've also got on one of the other outfits they've got like a bum bag slung across the show so i think they've really tried to think about what young people wearing at the moment. But where designed to like halos that because he's defining what young people are wearing these. Unfortunately the canadian designers haven't so yeah. I do feel sorry for those athletes. No the gone so badly wrong here and you know you can just imagine these poor athletes. They've worked whole lives probably from being kids to get to this olympic games and you know the games a bit of a disaster with covert and then they have to wear these ridiculous outfits. I'm very worst of all the bad denim jacket. This is not good so maybe let's just wrap up on a positive. There's a few others that you've you've said on your best list not your worse list. You've got china and france on there. Which would you like to talk about. I think we can kind of took them together. Actually because i think what they do is that kind of simple and understated the design. So i think if you have a really agenda-setting designer lack attell far or like you know the nike cleberation. You can do something really cool and fun. But i think a lot of the time. There's nothing wrong with a really simple classic uniform. The french designed you know they've just done like block colors. Red widened blurt. France has good colors. they work well. They've got these kind of polo shirts. That look a little bit. Is that the slaves a quite long down to the elbow that sort of blocked off in navy reds navy trousers. They look like the nice ikat that just sort of seem understated. Flattering very french and the chinese designs. That by the oscar-nominated costume director team yip who was nominated crouching tiger hidden dragon and he's designs a predominantly white with the reds kind of trim. It looks like is some kind of traditional fastening to the jackets on again. They look slake quite understated. And i think part. The french and chinese designs safe effective and fluttering safe effective unflattering. That's olympic design. Should really be all about. But it's amazing to to chat to you jamie and i think you know we've kind of gone across the board if you're rooting for country which is which apparently has bad colors. You told me earlier that we're going to block that one out. Who do you think is going to looking the best at the olympics liberia. I can't wait to say the liberian team. i would. Of course like you know both you at i can be looking out for the ozzy's and i think that uniforms a bad. I don't think that the i mentioned before that grain goats. It's fine but it's just like a lot. It's a law so not my favorite color combo. That's not assurance vote. I'll be looking out for ozzy's but my is also looking to liberia. Because i think that will definitely be best on the truck that was jamie waters. They're running through some of the best and worst uniforms. You're going to see at this year's games and that's all the time we have on today's show if you're keen for even more designed related listening than catch a five minute.

"Talk about being privy to the design. I'm working with the design is what was your involvement on oil your relationship with the design team. Yeah so i wasn't a part of the cooling technology. But i had a meeting with the design team after rio. And they're just asking what were some of my favorite pieces. What did i see a lot of the other athletes wearing. Was there anything that i saw. Athletes didn't like perhaps. What are we want. more of what's going to be more beneficial for us. And so i got to kind of give a little bit of feedback on my thoughts on the rio stuff and they said thanks and i talked to one of designers last week in new york and she said she used some of the thoughts and ideas when they're designing the suffer tokyo so it's cool to be part of that and learn a little bit about behind the scenes because there is a lot that goes into it so as a fun experience so i. I guess i'm curious. What sort of insight did you give them was it. Was it just about the fact that you're having to stand in the hate for a long time like six hours. Those opening and closing ceremonies or was this something more to it with some of the village. Whereas we'll talk about how figuring out if like a way to customize it to where it's like it's still team usa but it has a little bit of flare wherever it is you're competing and that way. It's it's team usa shirt for tokyo. And obviously you're going to want some neutral stuff that kind of fit across any games but one of the things they did for tokyo. There's some shirts. Sat usa but then it says tokyo in japanese right so it's a little bit of that flair to kind of be able to say. This is a tokyo shirt and.

"Today's show in japan home to this year's olympic games and i'm joined down the line by our asia bureau chief in tokyo. Fiona wilson fiona. We are trying to be as positive as possible in terms of telling the olympic story. Because we're looking at it through the lens of design but maybe just before we kick off you. You have to be a little bit honest with what's happening in tokyo. At the moment honestly is pretty bad news the olympics. It seems blood from one bad story to another. It's quite hard to find any good news. I was absolutely startled the other day to be walking through yogi park. Which is where. I want my dog and see the most enormous hot-air balloon it was in the shape of a head don by an art collector and it was part of the cultural olympiad which i didn't really know about and then this thing kind of it didn't really take off. They had instant on road but he was absolutely spectacular. But i think some people felt disembodied head was maybe not the best symbol of the olympics at the moment. So we're looking for some good news but that to me was the most exciting thing scifo. Let's look at the positive. Let's look at some of the design elements because every olympic games always has such a strong synergy with design. They they really try and tie to up together all the way through to the little picture grounds that they use to show the events to the stadium design big and small so what are the highlights from tokyo. One of the things. I liked just mentioned them. It's the pictograms. And i think what's really interesting about. The turkish ground is the sporting pictograms started in tokyo. Nineteen sixty four olympics on dot sixty four weeks just such a huge influence on a whole generation of designers. One of whom was jackie here. Amora who was commissioned to do a sets a tokyo twenty twenty and i went to see him so interesting talking to him i think he said he's you know he felt the pressure. Because it's just such an important but if designed to tom and not to be nostalgic not back but to create a new standard for these pictograms and they really are dynamic. It's quite different if you put them side by side the nine hundred sixty four set with a new set. There is quite big difference. One of which is the main call. He's used as this emblem blue they call it. Which is this sort of indigo blue. That we're seeing a lot of. It's one of the official colors of the olympics and of course for him as much harder there any twenty sports back in nine hundred sixty four. This time he had to design seventy-three pictograms so it was a much bigger project and he had a whole team of designers. He said he did eleven design proposals before they hit the one that worked and yeah it took forever to go through photos really capturing the essence of each spore. He said he looked to thousands of photographs to find. the shops. really encapsulated the sports and the other thing this year is the first time ever doing animated pictograms. That wasn't done by him. That was quoted iguchi but this really dynamic of pictogram. They're actually moving and they all quite spectacular. It's funny how such a small thing make such a big difference. Because you got to see these. Old over the games now obviously. They were really hoping the spectators would enjoy them designed for the tickets. The sign age all over the stadium so unfortunately not many people will say them. But you know it's really worth having a look at them even if you're doing on a small screen we all watched the the euro's and many people in the uk disappointed but you could see all these little quirky additions like this. I think there was like remote control. Cars bring the ball onto the pitch. I imagine that things are going to be a little bit more classy and well done in tokyo. And one of these elements is the podiums fearing it. Can you take us through the design. I understand these recycled pieces. Yeah well you know. I think interestingly some ways some of the elements that this olympics. It's actually about the way things made more than almost than the end result podiums of very simple classic looking podium to. What's interesting is made from marine plastic ways. Which has become a big subject here and people just donate tons of old plastic and all the podiums recycled. And that's been a big element of this olympics. Talking about sustainability and sometimes people slot turned off by but here when they ask people for example metals a made from recycled phones and home electric's they also people to donate their old phones and bits and pieces from around the house and they had more than they needed to do as so many people were so excited about is i think he's also reminder of how three years ago people with real to have olympics is slightly different pension today but these medals all in themselves sustainability as it turns out it looks like the athletes will now be presenting themselves with medals. They will be putting the metals around their necks. But i had the the sustainable angle okay. Let's finally try and a few plusses from this. I've spent a bit of time in tokyo and it. But i haven't been there for a while but talking to architects there in the past the idea about thinking really truly about sustainability and trying to kind of enforce it into a lot of their work didn't seem to be so pronounced maybe not so much with the general public either. Do you think all of these efforts around sustainability and the games have raised it up a level. Do you think that this is really kind of a good moment. For these types of ideas around circular design and sustainable design in japan right now. Sustainability is a big discussion. Here i think whether you know the olympics ebi truly sustainable is a completely different subject because obviously if you think about just the The amount of people flying in and that's not sustainable and a lot of people feel it's really just lip service to i think in terms of the buildings the has been some really interesting movement on that you know the aquatics venue huge amounts solar energy being used. The is really state of the all the way they're lowering flows moving wolf and it can change the size and depth the pool. That's quite interesting. I think one of the big things is the you know. There are forty three venues in this olympics. In only eight of them on new. So i think that's something to look at really brand new structures. That will stay there. The restaurant temporary and also does a load of venues from nineteen sixty four olympics which you know just deserves a designed book of its own in fact i think he probably has about ten already. But you know the architecture. I'm not olympics. Was phenomenal and i think that's sustainability. Isn't it longevity using things for a long time don't demolish what can we use again and i think some of these structures from the sixty four olympics. A science fantastic that. It's a shame not to see them against. You've got the budak hand. Which is amazing outs hole. Which is also very famous. Concer venue yoyogi national gymnasium. Which you just talk rain from monaco office which is really really one of the best. Modern buildings he suddenly in japan. It's fantastic building by kenza time. Gay that's going to be used again in this olympics saying these buildings live again. They've tried to do a bit of a heritage zone. Sinkhole it these buildings from the sixties with the new buildings like the ariake gymnastics sent. Which i did gun meet the structural engineer for that. And that's an amazing story. That's modern building in a way that you really can get your teeth into united. They spent so long making this incredible wooden structure. And it's just a shame that spectators won't be able to enjoy it but that building initially was going to be possibly just a temporary venue but now being turned into a convention center helpfully after the olympics people will get to see. Its go just a mess. Spectacular wooden roof that architects realized it was almost impossible to build until they burrow on this very very experienced structural engineer. And he worked out how to do it and he'd actually catch tanguy sixty four buildings so he was really the best person for the job so if you take time to look at the architecture it's fantastic and i think longevity is becoming really big conversation in japan you've got all these architects buildings have been around forever and you've got the craftsmen. Who know how to make these things law. So i think japan is well placed for that particular discussion. My thanks to our asia. Bureau chief.

You need to get out there. Get to the big metropolis of tokyo for some erotic fun. Since i started with dirty news for your. I'll just continue. Here's the thing i. I've always had problems with criminals and basically because they haven't done their crimes right because they get caught. I have not come up with the perfect criminal plan. So i have not executed the perfect criminal plan. Which is why. I have not been caught. Because i realized that he's actually very hard to commit crimes properly in knock. It caught so my expectation is always been hired for policemen because they live in this world. They understand how you get caught and how things work a fifty nine year. Old call was filming up. Girl's skirts in the train. Now he had this is called. This has a name in japanese is called suit and what he would do as while the girls were seated. He used a hidden camera. They didn't say where there used to be ones tiny cameras. You can put on the top of your shoe and what you would do is slide your foot in between the feet of the girl standing on the train. You take an upscale picture that way my assumption now this is not factual this is my assumption is that he had the camera in his bag and he would position his bag between his legs aiming across the seat at her legs something like that and that way he could take his pictures with his hidden camera so he was caught and they weren't giving a lot of details of how he was caught. But i'm pretty sure. Basically some girl noticed on the train and like had him caught so he was caught and they went to his house in his house. They found five cameras now. They didn't give specifics cameras which i was very interesting because there are these little micro cameras are the big cameras that he had sort of built into some other thing like. I assume his bag or something. That was a detail. I really wanted. I wasn't able to find. They found on its computers. I assume because they just said they found three hundred videos and photos. I'm assuming actually a majority of that is actually vote photos. At first. he was suspended then. He chose to retire fifty nine. He's close to retirement.
