Thank you any ongoing very privileged to be here so the first question i want to ask about this topic is i think one that a lot of people have and that is what is aromatherapy. Where does it come from. I still well any Aromatherapy is a modern name for a practice that has been around. For a long time it's basically using aromatic compounds such as essential oils from plants. It's been used by humans. For thousands of years the essential oils are the steeled and cold press aromatic compounds found in the leaves. The flower grind and bach of the plants as different plants produce different types of essential oils. As what's we learn. What each one does we can use it for. Whatever it is that we need. So the ancient civilizations such as greece rome china arabian in-depth of used aromatherapy and religious ceremonies and rituals. We can even find a examples of aromatherapy in the bible. Who's well. I'll give you an example. Actually the babylonians and the assyrians that would then frankencense during their religious ceremonies because the warming aroma of the oils of So that's what they use for me.

Hey you should have believed in the pac twelve. But i demanded all pac twelve fans. Show me they're brackets so we can see if they even believed in the past well. Ucla came out of nowhere and just to beat a team like michigan. That was legitimately a great team. That people thought might be able to some trouble and here. They are just winning game after game.

Misinformation About COVID-19 Planted a Seed for Online Anti-Asian Hate Speech

"Today marks one week since the mass shootings in atlanta that killed eight people including six asian women police have not yet labelled the attacks hate crime but we know that hate crimes against asian americans have been on the rise this year. Researchers at cal. State san bernardino at police data from sixteen american cities and found that anti-asian hate crimes more than doubled in two thousand twenty at the same time online. Hate speech against asians has also spiked as we think about these attacks. We have to ask. What do we know about online hate speech and how it translates to real world. Violence davey alba is a tech reporter at the new york times who covers misinformation. She's been following anti asian sentiment online during the pandemic it really started with a lot of the conspiracy is and misinformation around when the corona virus emerged and that seeded the idea that the public should be suspicious of asia and with the latest surge. In this last few months it turned into something more nefarious and it. Some of the hate speech and posts. That i've seen is really some terrible and vile stoff racists speech and a lot of it also included calls to violence against asians and have researchers been able to directly link. Those two things hate speech and the calls violence that we see online and the actual violence that we're seeing rise in the real world so what we do know. Is that the increase in volume of hate speech. Online as statistical predictor of real life violence. We've also seen that. Misinformation is linked to hate speech for instance. There's a study that came out month and it found that users who adopted the hashtag chinese fires were far more likely to pair it with overly racist hashtags. So you know you can kind of see that arc now of misinformation going to hate speech and going into real world violence. Let's talk about where this hate. Speech is popping up. Do we see different kinds of things depending on the platform. Yes we do these. These posts are in different places online. as i mentioned there in the most extremist corners of the internet so there are some telegram channels that i've seen that are dedicated to just making fun of asians and i'm kind of using a euphemism there. It's much more vile than just making fun. They use slurs. They use memes. Glorifying violence against asians and they sort of make it into a joke. Worth all. Turn it into a cartoon. But i've seen you know cartoons of asians being accused by hanging I've seen posts of pictures from the malay massacre where american soldiers are stomping on vietnamese people. And all of that stuff is glorified and pointed at as justified. Because you know people say this is rightful responses to the world having to deal with the pandemic that originated in china. I wonder what role the platform should be playing here. I know for instance. Facebook has a policy to take down posts that pose imminent harm but it seems like that could be hard to prove exactly and a lot of people who all misinformation nowhere the lines are so they get right up close to it and use certain tricks to sort of wink at these racist ideas or to spread misinformation but don't quite crossed the line. Sometimes it's not a straight line to harm but dotted one and there's stuff that skates really close to these notions that remain up and still contribute to this toxic conversation online.

Myths And Realities Of America's Rural Economy

"Economists benghazi. Laurie says the first rule about rural america is that there is no rural america. Like fight club except with cow. I was saying that's that's not actually what he said. What do you actually said was this. There's so many different parts of rural america that it's a misnomer to actually categorize all on one monolithic theme. Bend means is that rural. america is not one thing. It's more like a collection of rural communities each with different economies with different strengths and problems and different characteristics and binga says one of the best ways to see this is to look at the racial ethnic makeup of the people who live in each of these rural communities if for example throughout much of middle america including the big farming areas more than nine out of ten people are white and for all of rural america. Roughly eight out of ten people are white. Now that's definitely higher than the six out of ten people who were white in the us overall but bengals very point is these figures mask. A lot of demographic diversity in the individual rural communities for example here are some estimates from his own analysis. And so if you look at our break down just a regional breakdown. Americans in rural areas in northeast is only about two percent in the mid west. But what a half percent in west. It's even smaller. It's under one percents. But in the south it is sixteen point. Six percent so the population of african americans in the rural south is greater than it is in a national one. Benji says that's why this part of rural america in the south is often referred to as the black belt. There's also the rural parts of the great plains states that have a high share of native americans living in them like in new mexico and montana. Plus there is rural hispanic centers in south west and west like in arizona and california and in all three of these regions. There is a smaller share of white residents than there is in the us overall. And that's why banca says it's a myth that rural america is all white. The second myth that needs to go bunga says is it. The rural american economy is all about farming and the extraction of natural resources like mining. These are definitely still important sectors. But they're far from the biggest. So service sector. Employment is the largest sector in rural communities. And it's been like that for a long time. In most rural communities the combined services education and health care and social assistance employed the most people in fact these sectors employ roughly the same share of people throughout rural america as in the rest of the country about twenty three percent in a lot of rural counties. A local school system or the hospital for example is the single biggest employer and even in rural towns that originally depended on a different industry or on a different employer. These services naturally sprung up around those industries to complement them says banca bow meat packing plants and in the twentieth century. Early part of twentieth century. Me packing plants were prevalent in urban areas. But they start to move out into smaller towns to become kind of like that one employer to town. Another example is automobile industry Move from the north moving down south to mississippi and alabama. A lot of it is to take advantage of the low wage labor market and the lack of united nation and so this is actually has pushed these rural economies away from agriculture. To service sector. This is also why it's a big deal. When the one hospital in a rural town closes there might just not be many other employers left plus it means that residents of that town have to look further out to access healthcare. This is especially a problem in places like the black belt where there's been a huge increase in the number of hospitals that have closed over the last few decades and finally myth number three that needs busting bunga says is the idea that rural america is dying or destined for permanent decline but in fact some parts of rural america are thriving about one out of every three rural counties has enjoyed strong population growth in recent decades with their populations actually peaking as they headed into the last decade. That's according to the latest data. Unfortunately that's also roughly the same share of rural counties that are depopulating about one out of every three rural counties has lost more than twenty five percent of its population since nineteen fifty. The populations of these counties are aging partly because so many young adults of childbearing age are leaving for the cities and suburbs in search of job opportunities and for these counties this kind of fishes cycle consenting people leaving means there's less money for taxes and investment to provide the amenities and services that people want and so more people leave which means the tax base drops again and so on and this is one reason why incomes are lower and poverty rates are higher in rural america then in the rest of the country but nothing about this cycle is inevitable it can be slowed or even reversed and says even in some communities where the population looked like. It would be in permanent decline. There have been success stories especially in the places that have a lot of immigration as so you have a lot of people. Immigrants coming in to work meat. Meatpacking plant manufacturing places. The other thing is that a lot of immigration From other areas in terms of people coming to the us for becoming doctors lawyers things like that a higher education and income communities. So you think about the mid west. There's like a population of say vietnamese and brass or these areas or like the monk population in minnesota that these places do not struggle as much with population loss because they're welcoming immigrants and that helps them to not only just having people there but then these people start stores or start their own business. So we see a lot of that entrepeneurship self-employment that's helping to keep that area of vibrant. Finally bengals primary message here. Is that people who live in cities and suburbs should not think of rural america is a place that's in decline in needs help instead. They should be turning to rural america as a place that's experienced a wide diversity. Economic challenges and triumphs and therefore as a place to find ideas for how to address the big socio economic issues of the day like climate change trade immigration education healthcare. Pretty much. all of them

Writer Aliette de Bodard Discusses Matriarchies in Fiction

"The world as we know it is ruled by men but when it comes to fiction writers can choose what power structure they create and how they depicted despite the free rein this allows authors most recently replicate the patriarchy win authors. Do step outside the familiar. Societal structures and present us with matriarchies. What do we see. Aristotle condemned societies. The place women in paula knowing then is gonna caucases for threatening masculine supremacy since then. Men have often used representations of matriarchies as a way to demonstrate that women are incapable of or should not be trusted with holding power thankfully. The tide is turning early. Feminist speculative fiction writers like joanna russ explored all female worlds and pave the way for modern writers to explore more diverse power structures in action as something more than just projected male anxiety one. Such writer is elliott to bought out who. We are very pleased to welcome in joining us. In a discussion of matriarchies in speculative fiction. Thank you so much for joining us elliott. would you like to introduce yourself to ellis. Yes thank you so much for having me here. my name is edzard. I'm an award-winning writer. Of fantasy. and science fiction Most known for the universities which is a vietnamese inflicted space opera and my latest book is fire heart tiger which is a suffolk romantic. Fantasy said i guess you could call it too much rocky awesome and that is exactly why you are here to talk about matriarchies tonight. So first of all. I'll matriarchies only of used to us. As a way to deconstruct all paradise the patriarchy there other things right and they are They have historically existed Day are also very There's been a lot of investment in mostly trying to hide that they've existed or make it so that they were those terrible the stoke in places. Because you know god forbid that women ever been charged with anything But you can trust for instance The vietnamese society before the arrival of the chinese who who subsequently colonized vietnam was very probably some kind of much marcle and or much linear and you could see it in. You can't see anymore in the recorded history but you can see it in the fairy tales and the miss that our cost down where it's very clear. The women hold the power and that lineages passed through the mother instead of being passed through. The father is actually very interesting to look at the texts and go. You get those kinds of archaeological remains within the tax off the dragon. The dragon prince who marries the queen of the mountain. But she's the queen he's just the prince a to me. That's kind of really fascinating to see how it's been thoroughly arrays. Because the received wisdom was that those things just couldn't possibly exist.

Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Influencers, Activists Are Taking a Stand

"Month in honor of women's history month where featuring conversations with women and nonbinary leaders who are working to address the issues in their communities this week. We're speaking with amanda win. Amanda is the ceo and founder of rise a millennial driven social change incubator for citizen lawmaking because of her work passing legislation for sexual assault survivors. She was nominated for two thousand nine hundred nine nobel peace prize more recently amended has been working to mobilize a nationwide response to the surging attacks on asian americans. Since the beginning of the pandemic asian americans across the country have reported being targeted in three thousand hate incidents according to nypd data anti asian american hate crimes are up nineteen hundred percent in the last year and just weeks ago and eighty four year old. Thai american man was murdered in san francisco. A ninety one year old man was shoved to the ground and oakland's chinatown a sixty four year. Old vietnamese woman was assaulted in san jose and a filipino. American men was slashed in the face on a subway in new york city these assaults are happening during a pandemic where asian americans have disproportionately lost their jobs or had their businesses boycotted response to the recent attacks and the relative silence of bean stream media. Amanda posted a now viral video on instagram naming. The attacks and calling for media attention and public action. Amanda is here today to talk about this wave of violence. And what she's doing about it. Amanda thank you so much for joining us today. You for having me. I want to start with this viral video that you posted on february fifth. What led you to make that video saw. These videos of people being horrifically attacked in my community. I didn't see the mainstream media covering adding see anyone else talking about it. And so i thought to myself if no one's going to talk about it i'm going to use my voice and i'm gonna use my platform and ask people to help me get the word out and over night. Millions of people responded to it so three million people viewed it overnight and then in the following eleven point four million posts went up on tiktok response to it the next business day. The white house press corps asked the president if he has seen the video. Were you surprised by the reaction or were you like. No this makes total sense because nobody else is talking about this. I honestly was really surprised because this isn't the first time i talked about this issue before about race. General and every time that i had posted about race i have lost followers so when i turn on my camera that day to report that video i thought that i was going to lose more followers and i told myself you know it doesn't matter i am going to do this because it's the right thing to do and because people are literally dying to be heard right now. I want to talk to the larger race dynamics of these attacks but actually i wanted to ask why these attacks may be personal to you. You identify as asian american and have talked about your family's immigration story. And i was wondering if you might share some of that story and tell us a little bit about how it is affected your experience of these attacks and your response to them. Yeah of course. I'm so glad you asked that question because so many of these interviews. I've been doing of just been focused on the world. Terrible parts of it. I'm so proud to be hyphenated america and my experience it's been asian-american be means merican and my parents are from vietnam. They went into death to seek life and to reach these shores where they thought that they would find freedom in freedom for us has not only been you know the freedom to exist that persecution it also is the rest of the things that is afforded to us constitution including the right to petition the government and for me at least it's not only a privilege but our responsibility to keep pushing our country to be a more perfect union for me growing up as an asian american. I grew up in corona california. Where darn actually many asian-americans. I remember being one of the very few in elementary school middle school and even still in high school and comes with experience when you are really a minority and you look around and no one looks like you eat the same food that you do and then you grow up and then you see that all the things that you were made fun of for all of us and become really trendy when the communities appropriate at so. That's part of the immigrant. Unfortunate part of the asian american experience. Of course there's this perpetual foreigner stereotype. I think every single asian american has been asked the question. Where you from no really. Where are you from. And while that is and could sound like an innocent question at the heart of it at the root of a is idea that you don't belong and when you keep insinuating perpetuating this idea of uttering a whole group of people what you have are consequences that have resulted in. Lives being lost. Did you experience or did your family experience racism directly in the community or was it this. Pervasive or in addition is pervasive feeling around belonging. I mean it certainly is anxiety about being killed on the street. These attacks have happened. Have been two people doing everyday. Things like walking on the street or going grocery shopping. They one of the things that really stuck with me. In a scarring way was of twenty twenty. A man stabbed family in that stabbing. He stabbed two year old and a six year old because he thought that they were chinese burmese. And he on the record said that he thought they were spreading cova. So you know there's been a threat of people saying well. How do you know if these are really hate crimes. not only. are these con camera. They're also being fully admitted to buy the perpetrators

The Case Of The Dead Fortune Teller

"On april of nineteen. Seventy five the. Us army pulled out of the vietnam war as the capital city of saigon fell to the socialist people's army of vietnam in the days prior and the days and weeks following the fall of saigon the. Us military accused several operations aimed at evacuating refugees. Fleeing the communist government operation baby lift evacuated over three thousand three hundred children and the operation. Frequent wind rescued more than seven thousand vietnamese operation. New life and new arrivals saw these refugees processed in guam before being transported to a few army bases across the united states. One of which was camp pendleton in orange county california all in all orange county slowly assimilated thousands of vietnamese thirty years later in two thousand five that influx of vietnam refugees successfully transformed a stretch of strawberry fields and salvage yards in westminster calif into something more familiar. The area is now known as little saigon. Little saigon in westminster california is the largest vietnamese population outside of saigon. A a result of that There are often street signs in little saigon that are in vietnamese businesses. Use silage in vietnamese. It almost gives you the feeling of being in vietnam but you're in california as a result of that. There is a large presence of cultural traditions in little saigon. The cafes are popular karaoke bars. All kinds of ethnic foods and things like dad can easily found in little saigon. This a place where people from the vietnamese community can gather and talk and there's a sense of community there. This is sonia but yesterday my name is sonia. Chief deputy district attorney at santa barbara. Da's office a decade ago. I worked at the orange. County district attorney's office vietnamese in orange county brought with them to the united states. The kind of determination that only comes with the suffering and adversity that they had endured but also they brought their culture their food and their superstitions one major aspect of the vietnamese culture is what some in the us might consider a novelty pastime. Fortune telling to the vietnamese is serious business deeply rooted in their cultural history. Community members will consult fortune tellers for all sorts of reasons like making sure their businesses are properly situated for the flow of good energy to ward off evil spirits and haunted souls with rituals and spells to diagnose supernatural causes of illness establishing lucky dates for personal undertakings and to predict the future of wealth. Health and love. Then two thousand five. One of the most popular fortune tellers in little saigon was haas smith who went by the name. Jade i say was because in april of that year. She was found murdered in the home she shared with her daughter. Anita vo anita's ex-boyfriend young tran would visit regularly. Bringing coffee and snacks. In an attempt to rekindle their relationship him in anita had been dating for a period of time and very young love and as such can be kinda volatile times deterrent in the sense of It wasn't a serious romance at least it wasn't for anita but there was a real friendship there so i think that in his efforts to not only lure her back but general friendship and carrying it would not be unusual for him to share a meal. Bring over some coffee or just talk to her on a regular basis even if they were not quote unquote boyfriend and girlfriend. So happens is young. Tran goes and delivers coffee and biscuits and he leaves it in the front door area of the home he never enters

Party down: Vietnams Communist leaders meet

"Once every five years with much pomp and pageantry the bombs communist leadership convenes in a national party congress thirteenth. One again in the capital hanoi. This week the expectation is that there will be a raft of stamp policies and new party leaders john despite the country's relatively low kobe numbers and positive economic performance. The party's position outside. The national conference center is weaker than it seems at the national party congress. They discuss issues confronting vietnam. They set policy and they elect the central committee. Politburo and the four top jobs. Charlie mccann is our southeast asia correspondent among them the most powerful job in the country. That is the party. Secretary-general and what's the overall tone at the congress. This time around pretty self. Congratulatory parties had a good year. They've handled the pandemic pretty well. Had just over fifteen hundred cases and fewer than fifty deaths and the economy actually grew by three percent but there's still a lot of disquiet and the party and indeed in the public disquiet in the party in the form of some kind of opposition. There's no organized opposition. Nobody's going to supplant the communist party anytime soon and ever since the nineteen eighties. When the country embarked on the transition from a century planned economy to market one the party has state its legitimacy on rising incomes on his ability to increase prosperity. And it's done that over. Four decades vietnam has transformed from one of the poorest countries in the world to middle income manufacturing powerhouse. But if you look beyond. Those headline figures are causes for concern. The economy has been growing at about seven percent. The last several years and the economy needs to reach that level of growth to keep the labor market. It's not clear that it can do so however at the same time as you have this depressed. Economic growth inequality is rising and social mobility is declining. okay that's about formal opposition parties but you mentioned disquiet among the public as well. What's happening. They're vietnamese can't express their discontent through politics. Because opposition parties are banned but informal criticism is growing. There are a lot of vietnamese. Social media users about sixty five million out of a total population of one hundred million according to our social british firm as level of education has improved in the country and more and more people have access to the internet. they've been exposed to values that are antithetical to the communist paradise that the regime is trying to build these values like democracy and human rights and they can express views on social media and so it's that disquiet than in the public that's causing the disquiet in the party. I mean how is the house. The party dealt with that space for criticism harshly. They have cracked down over the past five years. They've arrested two hundred eighty people for quote anti-state activities up from sixty eight in the previous five year period instructed the serum press to scrub phrases like civil society and human rights from their pages and in the months leading up to the national congress. This crackdown has intensified earlier. This month day sentenced three freelance journalists famous for criticizing the government to between eleven and fifteen years in prison. It's a lot easier to shoot off an angry tweet or facebook post than it is to organize in vietnam where protest is technically illegal but actually there have been a lot of protests in real life over the last several years so in two thousand eighteen for instance tens of thousands of vietnamese took to the streets. Because they're angry about a proposed law that they were worried would allow chinese companies to lease special economic zones for a ninety nine years as a lot of anti chinese sentiment in vietnam. Because there's a lot of concern that chinese infringing on their offering sovereignty and the protests so violent angry there were clashes between the police and protesters. The government eventually abandoned this law so a good pandemic response and the economic growth. That comes with that somewhat offset by this discontent. What else is on party leaders minds. Ironically trade is going to be a worry as well and i say -ironically because trade is a is a massive driver of economic growth. It is through trade. That vietnam has been able to transform itself into manufacturing powerhouse and yet at the same time it gives its export markets leverage over the government. So for instance in order to get the eu to agree to free trade deal last year. Vietnam had to agree to abolish forced labor and allow the creation of independent labor unions which was a massive concession but surely concerns such as that aren't limited to the you know means the party officials have to think very carefully about their relations with both china its biggest trade partner and the us biggest export market. The trump administration came down really hard on vietnam labeled it. A currency manipulator late last year and trump has described vietnam quote. Almost a single worst abuser of everybody for that reason. So the party will be very keen to rebuild the relationship with the biden administration. But at the same time i can't be seen to cozy up too closely to the us for fear of offending china. With whom it has an incredibly important relationship you know. Shares ideology shares along land border and they have an important trade relationship you know. China is largest source of materials and equipment for vietnam manufacturing industry so that it's a tricky balancing act required of party officials to get that relationship right so whoever emerges from the congress secretary general. There won't be much time for celebrating. He's gonna have a lengthy to do list.

"vietnamese" Discussed on KTOK

"Story of Oklahoma in its people are Oklahoma History book opens with these words before the trails of tears before the war between the states before the land runs and statehood and Dust bowl before world wars and oil booms and busts and the Oklahoma City bombing and more tornadoes. There were others who came to present day Oklahoma, It seems the sooner state has always been the land of the second or third or last chance for people from other places. That's the end of the quote from the Oklahomans. And indeed, one of the major themes of our Oklahomans books going is how Oklahoma has always been, even though most of us haven't realized it, the land of the 2nd 3rd and sometimes last chance for folks who came here. So itwas in a later chapter of these, the tens of thousands of Vietnamese refugees who fled the triumphant mass murdering North Vietnamese army in the middle late 19 seventies. The South Vietnamese refugees suffered kidnapping into the North Vietnamese army forced labor, re education, quote, unquote imprisonment, torture, separation from loved ones and often execution. Then, as if that wasn't horrific enough. They suffered rape, robbery, terror and murder on the high seas as boat people courageously attempting to travel the greatest mass of area on Earth. The wild, colossal, shark infested Pacific Ocean, all in order to start a new life for themselves and their loved ones. I'm excited. This episode of Oklahoma Goldwyn, which is entitled as You said Long voyage home, both to share some additional resource is from which you who are listening can learn more about the Vietnamese boat people who had become some of Oklahoma's most respected citizens. And also to hear the words of these brave souls themselves who risked everything they had who risked their very lives to come to a land whose young men had died to give them freedom from communist tyranny. Going. I think it's important to mention at this point that whatever our opinions are about the wisdom of America's participation in the Vietnam War of the 19 sixties and early seventies and however misguided And in some cases just downright foolish. Our political leaders, strategies and tactics were the great majority of the young man who risked their lives and mental health to carry out the old man's directives. Did the best. They could typically was selfless courage of their own to help the persecuted and terrorized South Vietnamese people to live in freedom rather than the godless tyranny of their communist neighbors in North Vietnam. So just how bad was that Oceanic trick for the Vietnamese boat people? Well, according to the report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, fully one third of all the boat people. A total of 250,000 souls of all ages of men, women and Children died at sea. A quarter of a million people. They perished by murder, storms, illness, thirst and starvation. Thousands of them, however, blessedly found their way to far away America, and many came to Oklahoma. Since then, they and their sons and daughters have risen to leadership roles in every facet of life across the center state. 12,000 Vietnamese comprise the vibrant Asian district in Oklahoma City alone. Back at the beginning of the 2000 and teams. Once again, the ancient scriptural ammunition has come to life in Oklahoma in American history. But as for you, you man evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring it about as it is this day to save many people alive and quote So, like I said, we're going to share the story of the Vietnamese boat people in the most authentic way through their own words, and we're gonna share some ideas on where you listeners can learn more about their incredible journeys. The Oklahoma History Center, for instance, which is likely the greatest state Historical Museum in America is where I first learned the saga of brave, gifted, beautiful Tulsa banker and Vietnam War refugee one when farm The History center has a tremendous section of its enormous building across the street from the state Capitol that's devoted to the Vietnam War and the Vietnamese refugees who came to America and in particular Oklahoma. I encourage all of you to visit the history center and check out their Vietnam area. Also, you confined my block with many powerful photographs about the Vietnamese boat people on our John j. Dwyer dot com website. Let's get to know Tolson Juan when farm she was a 17 year old freshman and law school in Vietnam in 1975 when the Communists took over South Vietnam. Romero. I'm going to share her story in her own words. My parents want recalled wanted me to leave Vietnam with my two sisters and their families because my brothers in law were both in the South Vietnamese military that was fighting the Communists and one was still in the war. They were concerned about our safety. The day we left. We had to speed in the car to the ship that was getting us out. We had no idea if we would make it to the ship before it left. Nor where it was even going. If we did, we made it with just minutes to spare before pulled out. I was able to get out because my brother in law was a captain in the South Vietnamese navy. And he got us out by one of their navy ships. After that, we were transferred to an American ship. We were in the ocean for a few days. I really didn't know where I was going or what my future would hold. Because I was so sorrowful about losing my parents. The American ship finally stopped to the U. S naval base in the Philippines and we met an American man. It was very kind to us. Helped us with the paperwork. Then we got on a helicopter to Guam because of my brother's status. They helped us leave Guam. Soon. Then we went to Fort Shaffi, Arkansas, a large refugee camp for Vietnamese one continues her story of her exodus from Vietnam across the Pacific. My sister's decided to move with their Children to Martinique in the West Indies. Where are Uncle owned a Vietnamese restaurant? I was still in shock and walking around Fort Chaffee like a robot, but I didn't go Assumed I Reggie case. Remember she was in law school. It's 17 years of age in Vietnam when she had to leave, But I would have to get a job. I don't know why I chose to stay in America. There was no logical reason for it. It was just a feeling I had. I felt like I could make something of myself and find happiness here. Then Claremore Junior College President Richard Mosher showed up at the camp. He interviewed hundreds of people. And shows 25 to come to the college. I was one of those 25. I received financial aid for school, a work study job and sponsors who were like my parents to me. Help me learn the culture in English, which I could barely speak it all. So I think it must have been my destiny to stay here.

Is there a better way to do local restaurant delivery?

"Ever since the world changed in march. We've been ordering a lot more food delivery. In some ways it's great to get chipotle or my favorite vietnamese plays brought straight to the door about a third of the time though something goes wrong we can't find the driver or an item is missing from the order or it just takes way too long. There has to be a better way to do this right. I don't want to compete with uber. I just like to do something like this in my own town and preferably without being the one who drives around all day any ideas elizabeth. Thank you so much for listening. Appreciate you being out there. And i always love hearing about different ideas. I often come up with ideas which never see the light of day. Lots of my ideas are not good. You know and that's kind of how it works. You just kind of filter through ideas and figure out. Okay what do i do next etcetera. Is there some advantage here. And so the thing is here you know. I totally agree with the problems. I completely agree that there are lots of inefficiencies in this whole model. Lots of stuff is still being figured out and such the challenge though is even though there are some clear problems these companies they have a lot of investor money They're all trying to scale uber. Jordache whatever else postmates anything. I'm forgetting in different countries. There are probably some other names as well and we're already seeing a good amount of consolidation in the industry so jordache and caviar recently merged or one of them bought the other. I'm not sure. I think there's probably some other mergers in partnerships that are taking place so consolidation because there's not room for so many of them so i don't think the answer is in trying to compete basically. It's going to be very difficult to compete with with. What's already out there in fact unless this is your one and only idea like if this is your clear vision. This is your life mission. I gotta fix this problem. I would almost say. I wonder if something else might be better like. What else is on your mind. What other problems have you noticed. What other inefficiencies. Maybe there's something different if you do want to proceed you know if it is your clear vision your life mission. I think one answer could be not trying to be the next door ash or uber eats but pushing the local angle as much as possible and partnering with select few restaurants in other words trying to do something that is special in different instead of just something for the masses. Which is i said would be quite difficult.

And we have some great people talk about it with us first of all our friends. Our colleague Our collaborator jammu. Who is producer of the podcasts southern friday and the forthcoming movie daughter and has the morgan with fillon myself in fill one. I don't know a little bit of a book project which we can talk about some other time and welcome to the podcast jess. Thank talk about this. Yes you are not alone. We would also love to welcome to they. Call bruce both you guys. First time right hon win. Who is the senior culture editor at salon and co host of good pop culture club. Another podcast in our Podcast family so welcome to the show. Yeah a happy to be here. I'm yeah shocked that it's taken so long for me. Ask but i feel like this is the one i meant to be on me. We definitely we definitely asked to vietnamese american women to be on the pike. Ask very specifically to talk about this show. And i like han when i asked you. I may have been like kind of presumptuous. And that like you know you're you're an entertainment journalist. Who's vietnamese american. I was like. I just assumed that you had watched you like interested and watch watched house of hope when i asked you. I presume that was true that you did and so and so. That's why you're like. Yeah i'll be on the on the podcast. It was funny because you know. I should've expected it and yet you asked me. I was like oh. Of course. Because i'm actually from houston perfect practically a ho hos and they were none of them though. 'cause toes what to private school system so we should say that house of hose on hbo. Max it is a Reality television series in the vein of all those shows that you that no one wants a care to admit to watch like the cardiac shahs of sunset and The real housewives that genre But it specifically focusing on a very wealthy vietnamese american family in houston Have i covered all the bases. I think pretty much. I mean know we we can say that the the cast of characters is What you might expect for a family drama whether fictional or not set in an asian context right you've got sort of the patriarch matriarch the siblings they all have different dramas individually collectively. They gathered together. Eat a lot basically. This is the nonfiction crazy rich issue. Because that's exactly what what was clearly developed to be right right right. It's definitely created in the wake of the cruiser cheese But that said i mean we've all watched it in varying degrees varying varying number of episodes. I will admit to having watched the first episode and a later episode. That i was told i should watch because it was worth watching and the guys are pretty finished. A lot of it right. So unless the jump in Just start with you. What's what's your take coming up. Well i guess well i. I actually ended up catching it early. Screener of it before so. Luckily i only watch more so It to be blunt. It was not as trashy as what i expected it to be. Maybe no expectations. And like i feel like new money. Beat amuse people like there are certain type and how the show presented was Surprisingly a a lot. More layered than i thought you know especially particularly when You know you go deeper into the series because at first episode definitely like leaned into like this this like you know american dream poll by the bootstraps model minority and all that jazz and and then it starts off like that and then just breaks it down and just show us like just all the dysfunctions of the family. So you know actually was an keep in mind. I don't really watch. the family. Reality shows is just not my thing. But you know i had to see it. 'cause beat me representation and you know all my worries and concerns

Kryptonite for the Inner Critic With Kristin Neff

"Nice to sue they you for doing this. I've been wanting to talk to you for a while. Actually because i've actually writing a book about kindness right now and i wanna do a chapter about self compassion. So you are the you are the leading experts so before we get to sell compassion. Though i wanna. I wanna hear how you got interested in meditation in the first place right so It was my last year graduate school. I was finishing up my phd at berkeley and basically my life was a mess. I'd gotten out of a divorce. It was a very messy divorce. I was feeling a lot of shame. I'm and i was also feeling a lot of stress not so much about what i finish my phd. But more after seven years of my life. When i get a job the job market was really tight. And so i thought you know. Well i've heard that meditation is is good for stress in berkeley. So right down. The street from me was a meditation group. I was lucky every right down every street. Yeah in berkeley so that you know on every corner but luckily the one. I chose to go to The woman leaving the group it was actually a tick not han sanga reason. It's important is because some meditation teachers. Mindfulness bennett teachers wouldn't necessarily talk about self compassion tic time one thing that's unique about him. He's really emphasizes heart qualities of practice. Vietnamese zen master doesn't talk a lot about compassion. Full stop is but he does in particular right and so i started in his tradition And the very the very first night. I went the woman talked about having compassion for yourself the needed to actively cultivate compassion for yourself as well as others and so i was also learning mindfulness but because my life was such a mess because i was such a mess you know almost immediately i saw the difference it made when i turn myself with this kind of kind. Warm supportive attitude. I just saw my own experience really made a difference. So and then i started practicing more in the insight meditation tradition. I think because. I am a scientists it. It was a little more compatible with my Way of approaching things. But with people like jack cornfield the path with heart. Sharon salzberg loving kindness. So i was always i was always really drawn to the integration of you might say the spaciousness of mindfulness with the heart opening qualities of compassion and i was fortunate because it was their practice from the very beginning and that was about twenty years ago. Let me just jump in and define terms for people. Yes i i just never know. We have a lot of experienced meditators who listen for new folks who are coming every week in once you start to meditate. There are lots of ways to lots away within buddhism. There are. I would say at least two big skills. We're trying to teach. One is mindfulness which is put simply the ability not to be around by your emotions. The other is compassion. Or if you're if you're afraid as. I am of gooey words. You can just re translate that into friendliness. Just exactly cooler. Calmer nicer attitude toward external and internal phenomena can replace would cooler with warmer sure. I mean i know jimmy but fair enough so it sounds like you pivoted from the initial zen tradition into what's known as the insight tradition which is just another form of buddhist meditation. It's actually the school. I've trained in and right stumbled upon teachers like jack cornfield. Sharon salzberg both of whom have written a lot about yes. Mindfulness again just being able to be non-judgmental aware of stuff compassion which is adding in the notch just non-judgmental aware but having a certain element of warmth in the awareness and so so the mindfulness is aimed holding experience in a non judgmental manner so the compassion is aimed holding the experience in a friendly manner and so they have slightly different targets and so both need to be practiced that can actually almost appear to conflict. Sometimes because you accept your experience as it is including the fact that it's painful at the same time that you wishing yourself well and you want to help. And so it almost forms a bit of a paradox. Actually one of the scenes we like to say is we give ourselves compassion not to feel better but because we feel bad so you have to allow the experience to be as it is at the same time as toward the experience. Because you're friendly because you care you do what you can to help. So one paradox is since sara restate that and i'm also thinking that there may be yet. Another paradox probably won paradox. Is you in mindfulness meditation. We are not trying to control anything. We're just trying to see things as they are right. See clearly insight. The clear seeing of whatever's happening so that it doesn't own us right but in this case All when you add in the compassion layer you're trying to Notice that they're suffering there and you're not trying to alleviate it per se you're just sending warmth toward the suffering as it is trying to manipulate your experience because if you use compassion to try to make the pain go away. It's actually just another form of resistance so you have to fully accept the fact that this was painful this hurt. You know mess the mindfulness validating accepting the fact that this is really painful right now

"And and I do think that Vietnamese people when we talk about them being Republicans and then there is a lot of that that's tied to how they were treated politically by people who were. In Power <hes> during the Vietnam War and in the aftermath of the Vietnam War and so after people largely stopped trying to flee by sea or at least it slowed down then there were other programs develops where people were actually airlifted out of <hes> Vietnam again than certain people were able to have priority and some of those individuals who had priority to come to America where those who were in what were called reeducation camps <hes> which were essentially prisons that were established by the North Vietnamese government after they won the war and <hes> <hes> thousands of men were imprisoned in them <hes> and subjected to hard labor. My Dad was actually in one for three years and I have other members yeah. I know I'm supposed to be giving a history lesson here but I I do have to say that when my parents talk about what happened in the aftermath of the Vietnam War and men being told to turn themselves in the government told men to turn themselves in and they said things like you'll only be gone for you know three days a week excetera and then three days you know turned into year turned into two years turned into three years turned into seven years depending on how much power power you had in the former South Vietnamese government and so they were facing prolonged and indefinite detention by their government and the very same way that some of these men in who are now being targeted by ice.

"There. We needed to bridge the cultural divide. They also say they have a lot of communication with the Vietnamese people and the police says the Vietnamese American community of greater Dallas. They do have a lot of miscommunication with the Vietnamese people in please guys who's that? Is it on the cops? Is it on the Vietnamese? I mean, should we start having cops to speak Vietnamese in there? We start. I mean, they want the chiefs ten more Vietnamese events. Here's the thing. I I've been here. Now ten years, but I did a show for a couple of years in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and I learned a lot because there's a huge population. It's mung H M O N G among your from the mountainous regions of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. And. Many of the same folks here could be from the exact same areas that the folks were up there's a huge population up there though. And I heard some really really sad things from our cops up there. And one of the saddest things that happens is the parents may not have learned and never learned perhaps English, but the kids grow up in America. So they speak perfectly fluent English, right? And they this isn't happening with every kid. But in the case that my cop friends dealt with they this is a phenomenon they learn English, they're proficient. They're in school, and they get into trouble did join gangs, and they walk all over their parents because their parents can't communicate with the cops. So now, the parents are out of the picture, the kids don't respect their parents, and they run wild and wickedly in gangs, etc. And the cops are parenting the kids through the law, and that is a huge concern. And so here, we are say, well, you know, we need to learn Vietnamese Langley. We learn Vietnamese cultural said, well, wait a minute. You're in America. Why don't you assimilate? Aren't you assimilate? And I mean, the Vietnamese people who are here most likely are here as a result of the Vietnam war. And many of them fought alongside us or fought with us. So I have no nothing, but love and respect for them. But speaker to English learn the language. I think valuing and cherishing your heritage. Your culture is great. I think you should do that. But I think you I think the language barriers on you. It's on you, man. You came here. And I'm glad you're here if you here illegally, but but it's on you. And so no, we should not. And there's a balance I know there's a balance, but no, it's not our job to learn your language to learn Ireland. Hello, right. Lou Lou Lou. And by the way, I think I have more tolerance with Spanish, for example, because we boarder the a Spanish speaking country. So if you're liberated from from Vietnam of because you're persecuting you help us fight.
