Group is powerless and without a leader, but ev- everyone is the leader that what you do and like Adam that just made me laugh so much because like. We as White Americans have been taught our whole lives that the Greeks and the Europeans and the English are the ones who like created and perfected decrying like. We created the great democratic. Experiment, like is. We invented democracy, and then these people who supposedly live in a democratic nation show up to actually perfect democracy and don't recognize it at all.

"What set the addition we have is critical classics context. And includes notes on African literature in Essay by Simon Key Condie, and then an essay on Igbo Culture history by Don C O had gay very very helpful so helpful. Oh my gosh. I'm I'm definite person who will like skim over all the like intro notes and be like okay. It seems interesting, but like let's just get to the story here like I'm on the novel, not here for a history lesson, but Julia had mentioned like Oh the interest of is really like. Really essential to read. So I, dug in there. That really helps sets it up well to the novelty has these moments of suspense. That really catch me in it. Because you like you said. It's more of a character study. There isn't necessarily one overarching plot. There's cut of these different episodes that happen and there is some chapters dislike. Hold the phone. I don't eat dinner finishing this chapter. I WanNa know what's happening, so we get this foreshadowing conquest going to kill his foster sons this this boy that was taken from another village as payment for the murder of someone from conquest village. And he's kind of take him in, and he lives with him for like three years, and like the adopted son kind of foster son and A. Oldest son become like good friends and like. It's really sweet relationship and the foster son almost feels. More connected to. This village that has brought him in versus the someone he grew up in, but it's for shot. That concord kills Mr that Whole Scene Carey so much suspense. When his second wife daughter is taken by the like head chief Julius. The AH Head, priests of the Earth Goddess. Kabbalah. That one really yeah, true man, and so there's those are just a couple of examples, but. That was of like my highlight of the reading. Experience was the drama. Yeah I actually. I. I'm kind of the same way I only read the. The intro essays. But I read them after I read the book. I found them so fascinating. I mean there's stuff will go into more, but I. It sort of pointed out to me. The severe lack of education in the way that I had no idea. What. Any in any region in Africa what their specific regional culture was like and. It was all sort of. I feel we weren't taught much about. Africa pre. Colonialism you know what I mean like somehow didn't have significance into light. People showed up, and yes, we were taught that it was a bad thing, but armful thing, but we weren't taught like what was destroyed. United way of life was destroyed. who were the people there? Until, I was really fascinated by sort of the unpacking of. this of region. And just a really like day to day. Life, I. That's not what I was expecting I was expecting like a really political sort of culture wars story at instead I was just following a sort of tragic hero and You sort of see. He had his. If it's a very sort of Greco Roman like fatal flaw kind of structure where you can see how it's going to end. Because, he can't be anything other than himself, and it's sort of leads him to his demise. and. That's like a very classical structure, but set in an environment that I had no previous experience and so. That was really. Cool to me I don't know I. Really enjoyed that. And because really the only knowledge I had of. Really anything about Nigeria was from to Amanda from Bosie. She's obviously writing from a generation or two after a champion so. The main character in Americana is ego. And, she has some critiques of Christianity and their culture what it did to her mother, but. It's a pretty distant look compared to this right. So! Very three modern look I guess the characters she writes about. Reading it to me, it's funny that we ended up talking the Bible. Reading this book to me felt kind of like reading the Old Testament more like reading the ILIAD. And where you can clearly tell that it was originally an oral tradition, right that someone wrote down eventually. Not this story. was passed down for many generations before attorney wrote it, but he wrote it in the style of. The oral traditions of his culture like he was a very deliberate choice on his part, added something that they talk about in the introductory essays and just make that up. But I thought, that was really interesting that like it had the feeling of. Certain details get included in. In like something like the Iliad where? It just has to fit the meter or Include all these random details. Really. Why is that there or something? Where like had left handed right? His Epithet of the left handed man was probably just because it completed the line of poetry, and then you move onto the next one like that's what epithets were for was just so that your name took up a whole whole line, and then you can move on. And it is just like the description that always follows your name. And so I i. Kinda got that feeling from reading this until made it feel really old, really important, even those. In. The nineteen fifties like similar ages. My mother Britain that it made it feel I could of feel the weight of the culture that he was like. Everything for us. Which I was very. Young in the insurer essay by Condie, he writes how achieve as African literature is like oral tradition plus English forms like we have these contracts from English literature that Shea Group studying, but then also the oral tradition of his family his heritage. One as I can outside someone not like reading the The story where one of Caucus wives.

Are pubs petri dishes that should be shut down and avoided?
"So no one. Can we talk today about pubs? Because there's a pub in Sydney that's the epicenter of the outbreak there, which is admittedly a lot smaller than what's happening in Victoria, but it's significant and there was another pop down the road from there. There that was being investigated hasn't had any confirmed cases yet. Though, but if you start thinking about hubs, you can see how they could be places where it would be easy for the virus is spread. You've got a lot of people close quarters, maybe talking loudly, maybe letting their guard down a little bit. Should we be avoiding pubs? I think. This is a question that really needs to be addressed because. Our tensely super spreading environments for exactly the reasons. You just said Teagan. When people speak aerosols, come out of your mouth in other words micro doppler. She don't have to sneeze or cough. You just go to speak an pop. You speak more loudly because you've got to be haired. The five thousand people in that various times and you are drinking. Therefore you're disinherited, and you're more likely to be laughing. Channing to you mates, etcetera, etcetera is just the environment. Where if you've got the virus, it's coming out and it's going significant distances and I think that social distancing and pops may help. It may help reducing the numbers and pops because that statistically would reduce the chances that somebody's covid nineteen, but in areas where you are seeing spread, it may be one of the first things that you shot his pubs because there's just so to control well, there's a paper that came out recently about when people speak more loudly. They more likely to spread droplets further. This was a paper in nature, and it was particularly looking at aerosol spread, which is micro droplets that you can't see. Could be seen under micro a microscope, and these are the droplets that can carry virus, and can carry them quite far away. We can also carry TB by the way hubs, the only place where people speak loudly and a close to each other, but I suppose if we're trying to look for ways to reduce the spread. That's maybe one place. We could look at the only place. We should be looking. No, you start to look at the home and how many people you can actually bring into your home. The more people you bring, the more risk you're taking. There's going to be somebody there who is carrying the COVID, nineteen virus and again even though you might keep social. Social distance in your front room. If you're there for long enough in one person has actually got covered nineteen spray high chance, though spread it to the other people in the room, just because there long enough and these aerosols spread throughout the room over time. Unless room is hyper, ventilated This is a high risk. Sir, we may be quick in reopening pubs, and should we be open to not keeping them open while I think it can be very clever. In retrospect, it is what it is, but I think that in Victoria and use is Wales. They should give serious consideration to pops closing down again. They're restricting the numbers POPs New South Wales and overstate Victoria's in lockdown. But Really it an issue in areas where it's spreading an why take that risk and Equally careful in restaurants much as we like going out with her areas where it's spreading, I think these are places where you've just got to be careful as you gotta be careful as well

It just really depends on how much circulating virus that is there hopefully with mesler testing they're doing that. They are getting on top of it. And knowing where all the cases are the sort cases under investigation. The key statistic is how many unknowns they are. There are those unknowns. Do reduce over time as their investigations in their genomics proceed. Steadily looks as though most of it's coming from the hotel quarantine outbreak in some ways. That's good news. The reason I'd say that it's good news is that you're not seeing it from other surprising sources you've got to a single source which shoot mean that tracking becomes easier. One of nightmare scenarios, and there are plenty of nightmare scenarios I suppose is that there were multiple sources in terms of the origin of this current outbreak of the series of outbreaks, because quite a lot of. If it is all tracked back to the hotel quarantine, maybe not good news for the people who were responsible for the hotel quarantine, but probably good news for the state is that you can track that and it didn't mean at the time that there was coming from circulating virus in the community and the war, circulating bars in the community in Victoria at that time, so if you could get this under control, you could get back to a situation where the community spread is very very limited or indeed getting back to zero, which is hopefully the way Victoria was?

Hong Kong security law: What is it and is it worrying?
"24 hours after Beijing had passed its controversial security legislation. Authorities the Hong Kong had already charged 10 people with violating the sweeping new law. A new measure put severe restrictions on free expression. Beijing says the law is crucial to safeguarding Hong Kong's economic development and political stability and allows China to investigate and punish those accused of dissent. Penalties include life sentences. Los effect was immediate Twitter accounts were deleted. Pro democracy activists resigned their posts and several left the country. Li Chun Cheon is a former legislator and prominent opposition leader. He joins me now from Hong Kong, Mr Lee, Thanks for speaking with us. Hello. So, as I mentioned, several activists have disappeared from social media have ceased their pro democracy activities, and they certainly aren't talking to the press with Beijing threatening life sentences. For those that so called collude with foreign powers. I feel like I should begin this interview asking why you're taking the time to speak with us. I think it's very important to tell you well, what is happening to Hong Kong and the wording off the law is so vague that don't really know what it means. One employs collusion with a foreign power. And causing hatred to the central government. I'm not going to preach hate. I'm going to preach love only for the people of Hong Kong. How have you seen this law go into effect in terms of the way authorities are cracking down or in terms of the way that people just conduct themselves differently. They are trying to cleanse all free speech, putting fear among the people and and after you put fear, then the people began to start self censorship. So there's lots of people who tried to Cleanse or their faithful off any mentioning off the stroking that we have. During the past protest movement were now not under the Hong Kong government will have directly confronting The Chinese Communist Party because one off the provisional law is that the police has sweeping power. That is not what they used to have a new power to be operation like the secret Police. Britain has offered some Hong Kong residents safe haven. Many people have gone to Taiwan. You recently urged Congress here in the U. S to Ah pass. A bill making it easier for people in Hong Kong to seek asylum in the United States. How many people do you think we'll be looking for avenues like that over the next few months? And is that something you're thinking about? No, of course I would continue to stay in Hong Kong and continue speaking out for two people. But with the refugee proposal from any country, off course is useful that you know, people who worry about the future can go toe off other country to seek a safe harbour. But I have to remind the woe that actually They're already 9000 people arrested and 1600 already prosecuted and this is very difficult for those who are prosecuted to find a safe harbor. I think the important thing is for people to stay on in Hong Kong to continue demon and one country, two systems that are promised. We are only 23 year we still should have 27 years off, no change and also democracy. So you think there's still some hope then that the protests Khun B successful and that they can push back this this tide that has really picked up steam in recent months from China, seizing more control of Hong Kong, cracking down on on expression in Hong Kong. Of course, the situation is very difficult, you know, But when you look at is the European experience they have suffered for many years. But finally there's the Berlin Wall fell down. And so the hope is that also people in China one also democracy and freedom and joy hand together to seek for that, But off course, this regime ists now. Very powerful in terms of surveillance in terms ofthe, you know, suppression, and they're using law against people, but with the world's standing to get a Hong Kong I think we will continue our fight. We do not know when we can be. Ah, Victoria's but still I think the spirit had to be there. And we want Hong Kong to make it through the difficult time in the in the future.

"Political maneuvering in France as President Emmanuel macron looks to put years of economic upheaval behind him live from London. This is the marketplace morning report from the BBC World. Service, Victoria Craig Good Morning French Prime Minister Edward Felipe and his government resigned this morning after speculation president. macron was planning a reshuffle with two years left of his term. It comes after disappointing. Local election results from the President's Party last weekend years of yellow vest protests over. Over economic inequality in the country and months of hardship, as the country battled the coronavirus pandemic, the BBC's Lucy Williamson has more from Paris the statement from the Elysee Palace. This morning was very brief. It gave absolutely no details. No context what's behind this reshuffle. Did he jump? Was He pushed?

He does have a tough road ahead. He came in with very sets ideas about what was wrong with France how to fix it how to reform it.

"Could Beijing finally getting it away and silencing Hong Kong's democracy protests once and for all the Chinese President Xi Jinping has signed off strict security laws, which critics say will place the likes of the right of free speech and an independent judiciary at risk. The law has already had an effect one of the leading voices in the pro democracy. Movement Joshua Wong said he's left. One protest group what I'm joined by Monocle Asia editor and Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers by Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue Welcome both backed Monaco for twenty four at James, let's begin with you. You are in Hong. Kong whether has been A marking of the twenty three years since British rule ended. What's the atmosphere like today? Yes, what was meant to be called establishment day a day of celebration for Hong Kong returned back to mainland, but for a lot of people here it's a solemn day to protest against. Beijing and usually there's a big march that takes place around three PM Hong Kong time in about an hour and leave from Victoria in Causeway Bay and on March to the government headquarters that hasn't been given permission to go ahead to see the police because of the COVID, nineteen restrictions but there are people starting to gather in Causeway Bay. and the police have already made their first arrest under this new national security bill. On the question, we're all asking waiting to see how this bill would be enforced. And I guess the the worrying onset is. Enforced very harshly. The first arrest was a guy who's who had a flag that just said Hong Kong independence on it. So there's no doubt that the police are going to use their full powers under under this bill to dampen down any goals. For Hong Kong independence, and it's going to have a massive impact on the ability of of activists and pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. To to to operate as they have done. For the last twenty three years. Where unlikely to see a big march this year like we did in years before because the police on hand, the right police are on the ground and are very quick to to arrest people. Isabel. It's not long since we were all given the details of what's in this bill. Could you just summarize it for us? Please well indeed. I think almost nobody outside the National People's. Congress was given the details until after the bill was rushed through a rigorous fifteen minute session. it criminalizes any act of secessions, version, terrorism, or collusion with foreign are external forces. The problem with all of those is who decides Schwarzenegger as secessions, version, terrorism, glues, and and exchange, said the question of how the law will be enacted. Is ABS will be? We'll be applied is absolutely critical including which judges. How will the? How will the legal authorities in Hong Kong React Carrie, Lam has the opportunity to appoint judges that she chooses. And the bill, also the acts now also contains a rather sinister provision. Which says that in got his described as complicated cases at Beijing can simply takeover the prosecution of the law now again. All of this is is. Subject to subjective judgment from Beijing, Beijing designs what collusion with Foreign or external forces Beijing decides. What subversion is and Beijing, can prosecute cases? There is no guarantee that they will be held in. Public is provision for them not to be and. Given the state of of the rule of law in China. I think this is really really serious concern. It's also we should remember the. Legal State in Hong. Kong has been robust and widely respected and indeed lawyers have frequently taken to the streets to defend their. That profession and the application of the law in Hong Kong in very large demonstrations when they felt that Beijing. was encroaching on it, and so the capacity to appoint different judges to these cases is signed that I didn't think Beijing trusts Hong Kong's lawyers who are after school didn't principles of rule of law and equality before the law and all those good things. To do it's will.
Why isn't Victoria locking it all down?

And that's being declared, but even so it's still a real number of cases, and it's too early to say. How much of aim are unknown sources versus noon? It's likely that eventually most of them will be will be known where they came Frometa. The moment we don't, it is worrying, but what you need to hope is that they're now picking up the vast majority. Majority, of cases in the area and the stool nor lot they're out. There given that we were trucking along at twenty, thirty forty now jumped much higher than that. The indication is that maybe there were only picking up about fifty or sixty percent of cases, but now they might be picking up a higher percentage. We still won't know what percentages is, so this is worrying could be spreading out of control. Yet, to be determined
The Monocle's Luxury Retail And Fashion News
"Time to run. This Day's top retail luxury and fashion news with Monaco's fashion editor Jamie waters good morning to you, Jamie. Warning Jordana now of course, wearing black, as long been fashionable, but now the black in fashion council along with some other organizations is moving to make the fashion industry accountable for its race problem. Wearing black has never been more relevant. Tell us what's happening. Hi Yes, but there's a few initiatives and organizations that are being launched at the moment. And blocking fashion. Council is one of the biggest ones, and that's sufficiently launching these wake, but it's founded by Lindsay. Papers Wagner whose the editor in chief of Teen Vogue and Sudden Sandrine Charles is a PR executive basically they wanting to to make the industry accountable. So you know we've seen in recent weeks that were. Browns posting duck towels on instagram and sort of pledging. To the black communities, but now these organizations is saying Kay. We a lot of brands of said this, but they don't actually have representations in terms of their employees on in terms of your mortals and things like that so waking waking to call you to account. So black fashion counts who? Is doing what they're saying is a yearly report cod to hold brands accountable and so every year for the for the next three years, though sort of released this report card that shows. You represent the number of representations of black employees across different levels in the company's on. That was a good qualify paypal's wagner in times of the weekend and she said. We're in a state of cancer coach for right now, but we want to move to accountability Coccia any brown complex, one million dollars to the NASA pay on Instagram, but who will follow up and check that they did. So I think it is the idea of of really putting your mouth is and an If you can make the post on instagram and things like that, but what are you going to do about it? Let's take a felon Tino now. who have who are suing their landlords to try and break the Fifth Avenue wrench contract. Yes, this is an interesting case at the moment west of in this in this position, where over the past couple of months has been kind of. Danz between landlords and retail landlords and tenants in terms of. It's been the kind of case by case basis, but they're in various instances. Landlords have delayed, rent reduced or sometimes. Not Made Brown's pay rented all, but now getting into a situation where things as starting to open up and we're seeing landlords. Say Okay. You need to pay off now and Valentino is suing swing. It's landlord on its Fifth Avenue Flagship in Manhattan. Because it wants to break. It's it's lace contract which I think. He's due to run until two thousand twenty nine I'm basically the brownies saying but. It's such a drastically different retail landscape from when it signed the contract, two thousand and thirteen that. Basically can't make this work in this is just not tenable situation anymore and these these interesting case because. reports saying that the outcome of these. Early lawsuits. we'll really send a signal as to which way the courts are going to go. I think Victoria's sacred is falling different following a similar path. And basically. Whether what irrespective of what happens in the courts? There will be this tussle anyway, because if if brands say that they literally compay. What it's leading landlords in a difficult situation because there's no. in some ways because the the landscape is so decimated, landlords aren't really in a position of power. Because there's no one else is going to fuel they slots. No other people are going to be wanting to retail tenancies at the moment, so it is this kind of interesting tussle. Absolutely I mean it means that the whole character of Fifth Avenue, the kind of beating heart of luxury in the middle of new. York will change completely. Slowly I mean I I think you know obviously things are starting to open up in New York at the moment in terms of shopping, but gear I mean it's the one of the biggest things is that there's just no tourists and I think even if even as the shop so the open an an work how to make these shops attractive to shoppers. You're still not going to have the tourists that make up a huge amount of sales at these flagships in in your in power in the big in the big cities Jamie. Thank you very much. Indeed,
What Bungee Jumping Taught Me About Visualization
"What Bungee Jumping Tommy about visualization by mascot of free to pursue DOT COM. It's one thirty in the afternoon. The weather's perfect. The crew at Victoria Falls Bungee have just wrapped me in. They've done all the necessary safety checks to ensure good to go there now helping me move to the edge of the platform, because my ankles are secured with tight straps around too thick layers of folded towels to protect my legs from jarring. They're about to receive. My toes are over the edge I. Look out over the Embassy River, and then I hear it three to one bungee. Jump off the platform with a grin on my face and start screaming, Hoo. I take it all in my initial weightlessness, my rate of acceleration, the of the cliffside, the rushing water below, and finally the deceleration has the Bungee saves me from a much shorter life than I would like. I bounce up and down another half dozen times before the experience comes to an end is the best one hundred fifty seven dollars. I've ever spent the not just because of the Bungee jump was even more valuable. Was the lesson I learned in preparing for this experience? One day earlier. On the morning of August twenty, second might travel Buddy Michelle inform me that due to a tight travel schedule, I'd be jumping on August twenty third, not August twenty fourth, as at initially prepared for I didn't say anything at the time, but it didn't sit well with me at all. Up to that point I'd been confidence. I played out the day in my mind for weeks and I felt in control this change tip. The scale and fears favor the reality now. Is that Bungee jumping? If it were still on, the table was to happen number one a day earlier than expected number two after a morning flight on a four seater Bush plane. Those are always eventful number three shortly after we arrived at our lodge, rob our bags, check in and take a shell to the bridge and number four with no. Way To get oriented or settle in. Let's just say that I wouldn't be in my happy place. Later that evening my friends started speaking enthusiastically about the jump, and stopped her dead in her tracks, and informed her that the change made a significant difference to me the sense we were rushing to get in and the fact that I felt I lost some control of the situation changed my jump status from green to amber with a tinge of red. She struggled to understand and I struggled to explain. Processing the change. I've told many crazy stunts over the years. Bucket list does not lie. Bungy was far from the toughest, but of needed to feel that I was in control of the variables surrounding the experience, which both insured I felt safe, and that I can enjoy the moment if anything didn't feel right at all is giving myself permission to walk away Guilt Free I. Guess You could say that I needed to feel that I was free to participate in the experience, not bullied into getting it done by people or circumstances. That night I thought long and hard about what could happen. The next day I worked through all the variables, old and new and processed what the day might look like. I thought about the transportation to the new lodge, but close I would wear the bus ride to the bridge getting a bridge pass at customs to Zimba's a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia paying for the jump and finally. Finally getting the gear on and everything involved in the jump itself the sights, the smells feel the wind on my skin, feeling the harness, my heart rate that thought process took the better part of an hour before falling asleep, and in our lying in bed, the following morning that mental preparation made the difference the calmness about me that morning, and thankfully Michelle did not bring up the jump. Indeed. Our understanding of my need to decide on my own terms may have made the difference.
"victoria" Discussed on Book Club with Julia and Victoria
"Later at women and children. I shot up to a great feminist bookstore in Chicago. Because I. The cover is so beautiful and. I know you're not supposed to bike. It's cover but I was like okay. This is calling me. Allie. Recommended it so now I need to do this. And I had been in the process of just actively seeking out. Specifically written by women of Color Lgbtq Authors and non US or UK based authors. And so this was a really good book for a lot of reasons, but it kind of checked a lot of those boxes of experiences that are not my own I wanted to learn more about so which is also how Victorian found out. About this book because at work, one day I was kind of updating my book spreadsheet, and it's colorful, and she kind of came over was like. Liberty working on at anytime I can talk about lake something like an organizational to put together I'm like well. BUCKLE UP! Let's look at this beautiful spreadsheet. I was also so Jillian I at the end of twenty nineteen. We dental photo shoot for the PODCAST, which is a lot of time, and we just pulled every book. We'd read that year that we had in a physical paper Shin that wasn't rented from the library or something, and we laid them on the floor, and we took pictures and IRA being the like kind of data. NERD I am I'm like ooh. Let's make like these fake. These fun Bar Charts with the book, so we'll make like a tower all the books by women and Atar of by man and tower, while the books by like a non binary or groups of authors or whatever and. We did that and we did it by location, the author and like fiction and nonfiction and poetry, and I was like it was really fun, but then I'm like Dang. I read a lot of white American and white British Authors and I got my degree in English literature and One was part of the program and to you I also on me for not picking electives that would have introduced me to more more literature outside of the I read so much American British. Literature particularly White, literature while I was in college. I was like I need. I want to expand my reading more learning. Through other people's perspectives in their writing is. Really important to me so when healy showed me the stretching like that super cool and I was telling her I was wanting to. Diversify the books I read twenty twenty inches like. Let me tell you I. doesn't I this book home? Going I'll bring it. I still have your copy sitting right here, so we'll have to. Search distance other at least sometime soon so I can give it back. It was a really good book. wonderfully written really difficult at times. There is some really like hard. Topics and moments but I love how much Yossi just brings these characters to live like in the span of one almost like short narrative essay. Or chapter options acid in one short story basically Brings A fully-fledged character and their whole world around them, and then you mike at that character, because their the parents of someone else later, or you might never hear from that character again Each one of them stands out so much. That it was like really enjoyable to keep going through and I think also we can touch on this more later. There's these through lines and these themes that connected altogether, too. It didn't feel like reading sixteen short stories if one novel, but just told through sixteen different people's lives. Victoria knows that the way I normally read a book I have a pen or pencil, and unlike like scribbling in the margins, and underlining and circling like I'm a very hands on reader, but. Knowing this was not Victoria's Book I. Reach People saying yes, I had to make sure that I didn't you know? Completely destroyed Sorry Victoria I know I have done that to some of your. Permits. So I read this floor the podcast. and. Very recently because. I'm sure. We'll know the I think the last time we recorded. I had not started yet. I it's. It's been really hard for me to read. It's been getting a little bit better. And I've had a little more renovation, but it's been Kinda hard to get my to read during the time of the pandemic. My brain doesn't want to do so. But I found with this book. Actually I read it for the most part in about two sittings. I found it very gripping. and. Like even though like. Even though it is technically. teeters on the line between short story, collection and novel. By I think still is is more. It feels still like a novel because. It feels you sort of get the sense like this is all one big story. This is one story. This is a bunch of separate stories and. So I really enjoyed it. I had this sort of growing something.

"victoria" Discussed on Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast
"So I'm when I meet a fellow. Asian Americans who are not coming from a Christian or Catholic perspective. How do you view union with your child? How do you talk about Christmas? Is it really just an American holiday at that kind of what it is? Yeah Yeah so you a and you have presence and right all of that so so I remember when I was much like high school. And what's more of an asshole I I would. I would question my Buddhist friends like so like. Why did you guys ever Christmas Tree? Like it's like and in those days. I just? I didn't fathom that because I was. I was deep in the Christian culture. I didn't fathom that Christmas is also kind of become this American secular time of year right to to have these various. Trappings in your house. Smells like a forest through. You know those kinds of things so you know I would certainly not challenge anybody today but I just think it's interesting that there's you know certain practices that have just been grabbed hold by American culture as a whole and saying no this is. This is kind of our calendar. Right this is the rhythm of our year right now. Your husband is in the military is in the army. His in the navy over Navy does he go to see his on CD. Wow how many months is that. We've been on. He's been on CD for what he's not out to see but he does go out to sea. Yeah he'll come back in the but It's been about three years since you've been in Virginia and so that's how long he's been on. Cd We actually found out that will be moving next year. So we're excited to wear yeah. Washington Oh naval space there or something. Yeah Oh okay. Yeah unfortunately when we're recording this recently there have been three shootings on naval bases. I saw that like what's going on harbor. The one is North Carolina. No Florida Florida. Pensacola Pensacola So anyway I just hope they figure out what's going on and yeah yeah. Yeah you'd think just walking around on a military base. You're not at risk but you know well. I think people would probably have the you know. They don't plan to come out alive. No killed themselves right. Yeah Yeah Well. On that very depressing note. I don't want to I think. Now racking my brain Victoria I think I I found out about you on this facebook group that we're both part of the Asian. Broadcasters Association is at Yeah Okay so shout out to Lee and Andrew. Who are the ones putting all this work? It's just amazing to me. How many asian-american podcasters are out there? Right now and and so I just want to give them credit because because of their work I founded about your podcast and causes been are always on my radar to get other than East Asians on my program. It's like that's when they miss it. You and here. We are talking. Whatever works. Thought you had about being nervous. I hope you found that you are a natural kiss. Thank you and it help. I mean achieved. What it is that you hope to gain from this. I was really excited but I was super nervous because like I said it's it's probably just as idea that you know I wanna represent our community while and and so yeah well again. I think that's the Asian voice in your head and in the American voice says. Hey you know what? Who's an expert? Yeah don't want to do it and it's better to get it out there so you're helping some people and other people think you're not qualified or I'm not qualified to bad turn it off. So that's right. That's what I feel like as a bicultural like I'm getting kind of the best of both worlds. So so there's this hesitancy like I don't want to over. Speak OR SPEAK. GotTa turn or yeah at the same time. It doesn't like I don't have something to say. So do I wait until I have a doctorate in this? And then they're going to be some of the doctrine the opposite position and then you still don't get to talk so thank you very much for for being who you are and forgetting your message out there for many of our listeners. Who ARE PROBABLY NOT MOWING AMERICAN? I still think you should tune in because there's just a lot of good human healing self worth development stuff that Victoria puts out and and even though. I'm old enough to be Your Dad. I mean I felt like that's really good and I'm encouraged. Younger is already waking up to a lot of these things that it took me longer to figure out so think you're way ahead of the curve. I think especially the young Manga Americans. Listen to your podcast. They're going to benefit so much both because of your own experience understanding of the Mon Culture but also the experience of being an American so good for you that you didn't talk yourself out of doing this. I'm yeah Yeah.

"If they were life changes, situational changes or birth control in the mix and I think it can be things again. I'm not I didn't do like intensive study I myself that with some of control. There's no Victoria that didn't go through the birth control experience to compare myself with, but. I did feel one. In this book was the author saying how she's like. A ton of research behind this, but in myself I felt less interested in music, which is interesting, because interest in music is tied to our sex drive when you're on a hormone over control your sex drive squashed, because you're not going to your normal cycle, and she's like hug. That's interesting. When I went off the grid control I was super into music again at making playlists in listening to a lot and. I. That was the first time in this book that was like Oh my gosh. Maybe my birth control benefactor, my interests in moods, because I've been a musician for the majority of my life and loved music in hindsight I can notice that like the last ounce I really grabbed onto. This is my music. I love. It was right around the time I, started birth control shot, and then even like in the past year been founded like I just I'm just podcast now like I'm focusing more on like. Gaining through reading and I do enjoy music. I have my outlets where I have them, and so I'm curious to see if my interest music expects a gun, or if it was truly just like I had a shift in life. Also, totally skewing and you've my. Normalcy I went through a really big break up like right around the time I started birth control, so it's very hard to tell what things were like. Mood altering because of hormones, because of like serious like relational in life changes, and that's the thing that's so hard to track I feel like when you start going on birth control or when you stopped going on birth control. There's always a reason behind. It tends to be like a very big situational thing in your life, so for example I had gone up birth control just for. For a short period of time after a break again, so it's like something that helps your life. There's like a Lotta naturally but I noticed during those I think it was only like two months, maybe only a month off birth control, but I had a lot more energy I felt more animated. I felt like I was just getting all. That was a lot more emotional like. Going outside I was like more sad bill a good way like when I was happy just got was static, and I was just like Oh like is through break-up, offsetting more time with friends and leaving a more like lifestyle cater to me what I want and it was really hard to tell like what was me going off birth control. What was just me going through a big change my life?.

"Traditional Victoria's Secret her show had pregnant women older women younger women of all different sizes of all different ethnicities very diverse. And even the projection of beauty in that fashion. Show was not the standard frilly. Walking down a along sort of it was more at trying to describe organic. And maybe not the stereotypical definition of beauty as sort of see it every day, and sort of pop culture, and it was really Avangard for the industry. And I think you've seen a lot of embracing of this diversity of ethnicity because customers and and women have wanted it have been seeking it. And if you look at some some companies have really branded themselves feel like a third lab is kind of the anti Victoria secret. They had a hashtag that was on Instagram last night called via all angels. And they're trying to you know, be like, hey. Way are focusing on aggressively marketing selves as being often half sizes and being inclusive to all women. But I do think that in the market has spent a lot of different opportunities. So that women can find what they're looking for that. I think there was an absence of that for the longest time, and it's up to Victoria secret to pivot to either address that or two point two not an you know, let the competition have have that slice the market. And if I can just interject I think also carries point. I'm sorry Tyler. Yes. Yeah. To Gary point. I think you are I myself as a plus size women who works in fashion, and I know kind of how the sausage gets made. And I know what these models. Do. I can look at Victoria secret model and say, okay, I probably will never look like Victoria secret model because I don't have eight hours a day to go to the gym. And I don't have resources to have a personal chef, right? The the. Injure is that this show is inevitably. I mean, just by musical acts loan heavily marketed towards younger women who I think don't realize that. I mean, I can tell you fourteen when I was watching the Victoria's Secret show. I did not realize that I couldn't look like that. And I think that that's that's where this inclusivity becomes more important versus, you know, an Olympic athlete. It's it's a little bit different. Right. We did also hear from Robyn Lawley who is a plus size Australian model she's worked for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She started a petition asking women to boycott defection show. And she partnered with the lingerie brand third love. Here's what she had to say about her experience with the brand I actually had fallen out of love with the brand years ago after unfortunately, saying the same body type down the runway actually really liked the brand I used to shut the nice to buy this stuff. Even that perfume. You know, I fell into the fantasy of it as well. Every year they're saying the same body time year after year and even costing for them. Myself and not getting anywhere. Just made me feel like they went open to change diversity and that they weren't going to its Robyn Lawley. Plus is Australian model who's worked for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. You get in a few more comments before we have to move on. Belinda wrote us on Facebook in terms of whether she would shop at Victoria's Secret. Belinda writes, not a chance until they carry a beautiful no under wire bra in a forty four or forty six. They're useless to me. Plus, I don't like how all their models are a size to giving girls and men the wrong idea of what he woman should look like Morgan emailed. I'm a new mom, I'm breastfeeding and constantly tired. I would love nothing more than to feel sexy and comfortable again. However, Victoria secret doesn't offer nursing bras or lingerie in my size. I won't spend over fifty dollars on something..
