We announce that the first experiment disease or face pre study To study your 50,000 participants. So the most 95% because see, but the piece of experience more excited is the fact that off 11 equal with severe disease. They were all of those people were no on the vaccine.

Google faces antitrust charges

Google faces antitrust charges

"Something something happened with Google, I believe something did happen with Google. So a on Wednesday, the Justice Department brought a very, very long awaited antitrust lawsuit against Google. Saying that it's search product had basically cornered the market on this very important area of search and was locking out potentially better competition, and it's asking for among other things potential structural changes to the company. We don't really know a whole lot more than that before we get. Into the Nitty Gritty which I'm very excited for. Can you just on the scope of things at the Department of Justice does this feels like it's on the level of them going after Microsoft, in the nineties this isn't like. A little thing that will go away after a weeks because the news cycle has moved on or whatever that like this is going to be some kind of big even if the Department of Justice completely loses because their argument is questionable or whatever that this is a big ambitious meaningful thing that's happening not just a government agency complaining about Big Tech Yeah. This is a really big deal this has been in the works for a very long time. There are antitrust investigations against all the big tech companies and this is the first of. Them and also the first, really big action against Google for a long time. There was an F. T. C. I believe case against Google almost a decade ago, and this is going after Google search, which is the heart of their business and it's going after just the general idea of their size and so yeah, we don't totally know what the rest of the case is going to look like one of the weird things that a fairly small number of attorneys general has signed onto this, but they're definitely going for something that is Microsoft scale. I think the comparisons the Microsoft case they're kinda cutting in both Russian. Tim Wu is friend of the show and some we generally trust to have smart stuff. He's like this is just they just modeled after the Microsoft case. It's the same argument in as some other folks out there who are like this is totally different like a different argument, different case different time. So I think we have to see how that plays out. At a you were talking about what they asked for at the end. So they do mention at the end we want structural relief that is legal code for break-up, Google and then it's like and also anything else the court things would be good and that's the part that is the missed to me right like this thing doesn't tell a story it describes a problem, which is that Google is very big. We should get into the pluses and minuses of just describing that problem, but it describes a problem, but it doesn't really it doesn't feel like the. Doj is like asking for something they're just like look at how bad this problem is. It also seems like there's structural remedies. I mean it does sound like Code break-up. Google. But that's not really implied by the suit like the things they're actually complaining about concretely are a Google has these deals where android phone makers have to install certain APPS. If they want to have any google APPs preinstalled that google chrome default search engine is Google search on that. Google has this revenue sharing deal with apple that they're alleging provides this huge chunk of apple's profits that. That it's the default search engine for apple products, and all of those it kind of just seems like the solution there insinuating is that Google needs to stop having these deals or that it needs to add something like preference menu like you can select your browser. When you first sorry I, keep saying browser I mean searching. That you can select your search engine whenever you opened his brother browser like stuff like that. It's not really clear unless they I don't know spun off search how breaking up Google would help this particular case that they're making

What Is The Future Of The Oil Industry?

What Is The Future Of The Oil Industry?

"Oil, and gas powered a century of economic growth and damaged the planet's climate in the process which leaves the oil and gas industry in an existential panic in the short term, demand is down because of the pandemic in the long term. Well, there are two new reports out offering very different visions of the future NPR's Cumulus Domino ski covers energy and joins us now hi Camilla. Tell us about these two new reports where are they coming from? Yes, so they offer very divergent perspectives and let's start with the idea that oil will come roaring back. This is assuming that once the pandemic is over, someday, it will be over and the economy will recover oil will come back a demand will be there. The developing world is GONNA guzzle more and more of it back to business as usual. This is the view that was laid out by OPEC, cartel of oil exporting countries in their annual report called the Wu. then. Yeah the WOO WOO oil. Then there's different version of the future that was laid out by the International Energy Agency which a very influential group they said maybe that happens, but maybe the world takes action on climate change and if appropriate action is taken, oil demand could start going down and might even have peaked already. So is the main divergence in these two reports the assumptions about whether the world will take climate change seriously and to to slow it down. Yeah. That's the fundamental disagreement in this debate has been around for a long time while the World Act aggressively when will that happen? When will oil peak but right now this pandemic, which is you know we use the word unprecedented so much but something unprecedented has happened. There's a dramatic drop in demand for oil massive job losses across the sector, and that has made some people wonder could something else unprecedented happened? Could this unusual moment lead to an unusual level of action from world? Governments Arrive Faster or are you OPEC and you look at this and say the pandemic is just a blip and we'll be back to normal once it's over I'll note to there's there's one thing that both sides and pretty much everybody agrees on which is that the current pledges, the policies that are in place from world governments now are not enough to keep global warming at the two degrees Celsius that was committed to Paris or to shift the world meaningfully away from relying primarily on oil. So. That would require a huge transition from from what's currently happening or oil companies making those kinds of transitions i? Mean they have to make decisions today based on which one of these two futures they think is the most likely, right? Yeah. Absolutely, and you can see that split playing out a company's just to take two examples Exxon is doubling down on fossil. Fuels predicting a future in which there is still robust demand for gas and they. They'll be there to meet it meanwhile BP formerly British Petroleum they're they're projecting the world might be moving really aggressively and in they want to be there pivoting renewables trying to figure out how to make money money on a world that's transitioning away from their core product Some investors Nicole about so companies right now are placing their bets betting everything on which version of the world they think is more likely. It's hard to imagine any higher stakes here not only the future of those massive companies but like the future of the planet potentially literally I mean Exxon is right on the future is a lot like the present we're. Burning lots of oil which has had the disastrous climate consequences that we see unfolding and if BP and a lot of European super majors are correct. Then governments around the world might penalize carbon emissions, promote renewables. It would mean huge shifts in the energy industry, but it would help prevent the worst impacts for the planet like you said, NPR's Domino Ski. Thank

Is NYC on its deathbed?

"Last month executives from more than one hundred and sixty of New York City's largest employers, banks, and law firms, sports, leagues, and Real Estate Developers sent a letter to the Mayor Bill De Blasio. They warned that his poor management of the pandemic was threatening long-term damage. There is widespread anxiety the wrote over public safety cleanliness and other quality of life issues that are contributing to deteriorating conditions in commercial districts and neighborhoods across the five boroughs. The five boroughs of New York. City to see you know are the Bronx Manhattan Brooklyn Queens and Staten Island. Also just so you know Bill de Blasio is Democrat who even before the pandemic was almost comically unpopular. We don't need to get into the details, but if you want to read up on him, just do a search for de Blasio that's DB L. A. S.. and. Then arrogant or hypocrite even schmuck. Considered this campaign ad from a fellow Democrat. The less bill de Blasio is the worst mayor in the history of new. York. City and that is. Rose. Congressman. You don't sound very happy about that. Blacks Rose Macau. Grossman now you and I happen to know each other a little bit through a family connection. My son, has worked on your campaign in in your office in DC. Do you saw me swear to not let that relationship influence this interview I solemnly swear rose represents new. York's eleventh district historically the only congressional district in the city, the votes Republican it includes all of Staten Island and parts of southern Brooklyn one of the highest rates of unionization of any district in America cops firemen. Teachers. Nurses. First. Responders Sanitation Workers, folks who we just recently started calling essential workers but quite frankly, they were always essential like every member of the House of Representatives rose is up for re election in. I don't care about politics my friend. Not Right now. On employment skyrocketing the economy in disarray people fearful further. Fearful. For their future of their families the time to be thinking about how to help people making government finally work again, people are so disgusted with their government that's on the left, the middle and the right. You recently said there is no reason that every single teacher in New York City should not be tested at least every other day as far as I know that's not even close to happening. It's not happening because a failure of leadership a failure of imagination nobody has confidence in this city right now there's no plan there's no solidarity. There's no resources with a system of pool testing with a system with New York City is acting almost as if it is a venture capitalist, it comes to figuring out the most innovative ways to beat the pandemic investing in them early on with private partnerships and then dramatically scaling them. There's no reason we couldn't be testing every single teacher every other day we asked Mayor de Blasio for an interview but he declined there are at least two reasons why in political circles de Blasio is considered particularly unskilled last year he spent a lot of time outside the city for president even though he had virtually no constituency. He's also managed to annoy the one person a New York City mayor can't afford to annoy the governor of New York Andrew Cuomo. New York mayors have a history of acting like the most powerful person in one of the most important cities in the world which to be honest it's not entirely inaccurate. A lot of the city's leverage runs through Albany the state capital what we need, and what this has not done is we need someone who's willing to exist in reality. Guess what if you want the city the prosper you need the governor. If you want the city to prosper, you shouldn't be at tagging housing them. You should be working with him but as Max rose season, the Basel Administration was failing New York long before covid hit in some ways the mayor and his administration took up a new form of laissez faire economics where they said well, we don't have to invest in the future of this city because people have to stay here, people will need to stay here. People will always come here and build their businesses. We don't have to do anything. Well, that's of course, not the case this is a competitive country and it is a competitive world. During the pandemic New York City's been competing with neighbors like New Jersey and Connecticut, and New York suburbs also Florida and Arizona in Nashville Austin those at least are a few of the places that some New Yorkers have fled to. But how many? The truth is no one really knows yet. Pre pandemic the city's population was eight point three million. The New York Times analyzing cell phone data from that four hundred, twenty thousand people had left the city between March and may most of them wealthier residents with a second home. But that measurement has an obvious limitation leaving the city with your cellphone doesn't mean you won't return especially if you own your home since right now is not the easiest time to sell a New York apartment. Here's another probably better metric since March, roughly two, hundred, fifty, thousand New Yorkers have filed with the post office to change their mailing address. That's about double the number from the same period last year. So that suggests roughly one hundred and twenty-five thousand higher than normal outflows that goes with a significant decline also hard to measure in the number of people moving into new. York. Still in a city of eight point, three million, this doesn't seem to qualify as a mass exodus. To. Get a slightly finer greened look at population outflow. We called up Nancy Wu I'm an economist at St Easy where I look at the trends about real estate and then create analyses to tell stories about the data street easy is listing service used by landlords and renters, buyers, and sellers and real estate agents. It manages a pretty impressive database. I have access to all of the market data on the sales and the rentals listings in the universe of real estate listings in New York, city and what has seen since the. So Manhattan rental inventory as of July there's been thirty seven thousand listings on the market that is a sixty five percent growth from last July and how about in say Queens and Queens you should now has two point, two, million people whereas Manhattan has only one point six, million in Queens there six, thousand, six, hundred listings on the market, and that's a twenty six percent increase from last July. So inventory grew everywhere when looking at the borough level but grew way more Manhattan. So that's some rental data. What about home sales in July? There's thirty seven percent fewer Manhattan. That went into contracts than in the same month last year there's largely been a fast forwarding of the natural attrition of the City so New Yorkers were planning on moving to the suburbs within one to two years are doing. So now instead so these New Yorkers are taking advantage of the low mortgage rates to move to the suburbs. So that's another hint that the outflow may not be as apocalyptic as some people think at least not yet that may be more of a one time acceleration of constant trend. Although of course, those outflows are usually countered by inflows will keep moving into New York. There are a lot of reasons to suspect not particularly in the short term, the city is diminished and it remains relatively expensive especially housing although that too is changing at least a bit in Manhattan rents fell by three percents year over year since last July that's the biggest decline we've seen since agree recession when rents fell ten percent but Wu says, we may be seeing only the beginning of this trend we do expect Manhattan rents could fall by more than ten percent because there's a lot of factors where the pandemic has more impact on rents than the great recession did. That may be especially true for two reasons. The first is that a recovery from pandemic is likely even more uncertain than recovery from a financial crash. The second is that the pandemic isn't done doing its damage on the economy just last week, we saw tens of thousands of new layoffs and furloughs announced by firms like Disney and united and American Airlines and even when jobs aren't based in New York City, there is a trickle down effect on the financial services and banking industries here on consulting and accounting firms on commercial real estate and the hospitality sector. A recent audit by the New York State Comptroller reported that over the next year between the third and a half of New York City's restaurants and bars may close permanently.

I asked the mayor why he did not simply say no comment and let will make her own announcement. But I don't see why I said no comment. You guys and I know an answer that's pretty not not fair to do.

Fan You want not held it down. But it's been incredible to see your acting career just flourish and you play the character of dom on most recent season of the shy conduit for the money I, do it for the culture talk to us about what it was like to play. And get into that character shirish doubt I love lean away. She's amazing for our culture and she was like I might have something for you on which to come in addition and I was like I can't mess this up like I wanna be on the shy and I got the role of dom which I love because she's so different from leaky show empowered dom as a chef that's an entrepreneur and trying to get their business off of. The ground and really focused into keeping 'em it on point so they can build this amazing business together. So I think it was a great transition into go from working with great creators like Courtney Kemp and fifty to now be on the Lena and her crew has been just an incredible transition and so there and you've been acting in so many different types of roles for over ten years I'm curious like what type of role do you hope comes next I'm always looking for relieve rooted and grounded stories just stories that matter to us. Our culture stories that we can relate to stories that people aren't telling I'm attracted to that kind of material, which is why I'm also producing house well, because the great thing about producing, find your own material and bring it to life you're working on a new project that gives a behind the scenes. Look at the NFL. Tell us a bit about this new series and why you wanted to be involved. So fifty were executive producing together the book that we read that we love and it's more about like what goes on behind The scenes with sports, but it's mostly about the women. So many women just give up their own lives just to be there for their partner, who's an athlete losing sports, and what happens when you like I have my own life and I want to do my own thing and what effect does that have, but it gets really grimy and gritty in real and obviously you know sports and athletics or something you know I know a lot about so I was able to really give some of my stories and really gives some real. Really exciting content to the show. So we're excited we're excited to hopefully be in production really soon and get that oven going you're also working on. Producing Story About Sin Toya Brown long you know young woman who killed a man in self defense sixteen was tried as an adult given a life sentence was then finally offered clemency last year. Why was it so important to you to make sure that this story was told that just such a powerful story and I had been tracking it for a while and watching toys interviews and just what happened to her from young growth? Donau. Moe's fascinated at like what? Was Your Life like that. took you down these paths and then her completely changing her life and finding God and becoming the spokesperson for young girls and sex trafficking. I thought it was amazing. So that's something we're so excited about and wanted to be so careful with because now we're telling someone's life story. You don't WanNa, take it lightly or take that for granted art. So power was truly one of my favorite shows I've talked to breathe way too much. I still found myself wondering what carers from the show would do if they existed in the real world. So We'd love it if you could just indulge us in a little bit of a game. Okay. We're GONNA throw out a scenario and you tell us which character from power best fits the situation. All right. Okay. So we all know that Joe Biden made good on his promise to choose a woman to be his running mate. On the democratic. Ticket but we want to know which female character on power would have made a better choice as a running mate. Okay. So You already know off the top of the dump quick witted she's smart. She knows the system how to get through the system I. think he'd be a great running Angelo for sure I mean she kinda got caught up by the system that numerous through it and she knows the law whether she was part of breaking the law or not. She knows the law. So I think she would have been great. All, right. Second Question. So none of the men on power were necessarily winning awards in the a good boyfriend healthy relationships department lynch two men from power. Do you think could go head to head in a horrible boyfriends verses? Who would you like to see? I think draze caring. There was a horrible boyfriend who said the daughter the always mentioned that he didn't care what happened. Durham mom probably ghost I don't love how he handled the situation between you know Tasha Angela and how he did that I wouldn't say Tommy 'cause. You did kill Holly. You're right. Maybe that's what I was gonNA. Relationship you've really love Kisha and things that he would have never heard. Anything to protector. So he might not have been the ideal boyfriend, but I think he was getting to a place where he was really trying to eat. Better. But he did last gopher. No

So rather been telling you all about who they are and what they do. I would love for you to hear it straight from them. Hi Alexis. Thank you so much for having me on. This is I think this is the first. PODCAST appearance I've done in a while. So that's exciting. So about Me I am twenty eight turning twenty, nine in a couple of months very exciting in the throes of the Saturn return which is. Home. I'm black and ice that I'm the child of indigenous mothers because my second adoptive parent, which is a story will get into in a second and I'll clarify what I mean by that. Is Indigenous and I'm still trying to figure out if my biological mother was truthful with my adoptive parents about my indigenous heritage, it's not one of those leg. My grandmother was like a such and such kind of situations It actually has to do with my paternal grandfather So you know we're figuring that out but in the mean time I say I'm a child of indigenous mothers to be really clear about a WHO I am in that regard m professionally, I am a writer, an artist and a sorceress. My pronouns are she heard they I identify as FAM- 'cause my gender is really weird and complicated. and has layers of Wu mixed into it too. So sometimes, it's just easier to be like yeah okay. This is folks do what they want and I'm also queer so and I have autism I was diagnosed at twenty seven which is funny because I studied autism for like four years in high. Slovenia with a thought that maybe I would have On something but Nah. but I did but I didn't. Add I'm also disabled I have a multiple sclerosis I was also diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at twenty seven. During my birthday month it was a very exciting bursting. That see in a nutshell. Wow. Yeah. I just want to say like I love. The amount of representation you're able to bring for folks I. I know when I hear you speaking about who you are I'm hearing things that I I can really to and I also have seen like out there in the world. I. Know isn't really being said, and one of them is that you mentioned about how? You like had been studying onto them for some time and like how did you not know well A for folks that don't know. Much about my professional history I was a social worker for a long time and I had a long like eleven year long career and towards the end I was a teacher for kids with autism and I loved it absolutely loved it felt super at home and just like you didn't reach diagnosis until I was around like twenty, seven, twenty, eight I, think. It's just kind of funny like how it works out that way you know Ray Lake and like I think my so it's funny 'cause like in my particular situation, my first set of adoptive parents. Okay. So let me back this trailer up a little bit. I was adopted twice I was adopted as an infant and I usually call that set of parents by foster parents because it helps make things less confusing to the wider world. And just because I usually don't have time to explain my family tree with the. Diagram. Like New People. So I was. Of Infant, and then I was adopted again as an adult adoption by my mom she is my mom. So when I usually when I say mom speaking of her and what I'm speaking of my adoptive parents who were a queer couple I was raised by White Lesbians, which is who boy that's a Latin to wrestle with in hindsight but. I'm usually not referring to them, but sometimes I'll slip and I'll just call the MOM and everybody gets real real confused because I got like twelve of them lying around it's great. Twelve months I mean but when I was a toddler, I showed some of the signs of A lot of lake professional clinicians would probably deemed autism

"Closed. The Chamber of Commerce in Mountain also had organized the Sanitary Brigade to help conduct house to house inspections and searches in the city that effort. Apparently went better as all of this was going on China, ask for other nations to send medical experts to Manchuria, both to help control the outbreak antiques, study the disease. To American doctors, Richard P strong and Oscar teague were in the Philippines and they were among the ones who arrived in. Manchuria. Their focus was more on study than on control since autopsies were so taboo. They focused their work on unclaimed unidentified bodies conducting twenty five autopsies that contributed enormously to the understanding of pneumonic plague researchers also tried to confirm whether the target and. And marmot really had played a part in this epidemic, but their research at that point was hampered by the fact that these animals hibernate in the winter like they could go try to find some that were hibernating. But that still wasn't gonNA really help them determine whether whether like that was not a real world scenario. So what it had been like back in November. Studies conducted later on, though did confirm that these marmots can contract pneumonic plague in the can spread it from one to another. So it seems likely that the first case of plague in this epidemic was contracted from a Marmot, but that's not likely something that will ever be proved for certain. The last new case of pneumonic plague in Harbin was reported on March first. First nineteen eleven with scattered cases elsewhere being reported over the following weeks in April of nineteen eleven. China outlawed ptarmigan hunting as the plague was winding down. The first international play conference was convened in Mukden, from April third to twenty eighth in. This was the first international conference of its kind to be held in. China. Was Conference involved a whole lot of like in. International drama. Russia's delegation was primarily made up of military people which China took as an implied threat to try to take over more territory at first Japan announced that it was going to boycott the conference altogether apparently because it felt like it was being upstaged by China. Japan did ultimately sent five delegates though in the end, the delegates at the conference past forty five resolutions as recommendations for the Chinese government on public health and plague prevention, and another thing to come out of this conference was the establishment of the north. Manchurian, plague prevention service, which we will talk about more in a moment. By the time, the international play conference came to a close the pneumonic plague epidemic in Manchuria was essentially over. Official Records Document forty-three thousand nine hundred seventy two cases of pneumonic plague and one survivor although because migrant laborers and trappers may not have been listed on official tallies, some estimates are as high as sixty thousand deaths since cases were clustered in railroad towns, the death tolls in those communities. Br Tremendous. If you look at the like the percentage of deaths like death as a percentage of the whole population. Like that number seems small, but that's because it's spread out of the whole population, of Manchuria, and not just as railroad towns. It is really not clear whether this outbreak was brought under control through medical intervention or whether it wow. Nd down through other factors, the way bubonic plague outbreaks Manchuria seemed to be cyclical and temporary, but it is clear that efforts to stop traffic along the railroads and established sanitary cordons. Round cities generally keep people from travelling that kept the disease from spreading much beyond Manchuria the creation of the. The. North Manchurian plague prevention service was one of the last formal acts of the Ching. Dynasty before the Chinese Revolution of Nineteen Eleven, which overthrew the Imperial Dynasty and established a Republic of China. The Plague Service started its work on October first nineteen twelve under the new Republican government. Sometimes, the North Manchurian plagued prevention service as described as China's first public health agency, but that's not entirely true. When we have talked about public health reform on this show before we've generally been talking about the US or the UK where typically philanthropists or medical professionals or sometimes just really enthusiastic lay people have done everything from creating new programs themselves to advocating for change at the government level. But Chinese public health followed precedent that had been set in Germany and Japan where the first public health efforts were part of the police. China had established a police based. Public. Health. Service in Nineteen Oh two in the Ministry of Police established in nineteen o five included sanitary department. These officers carried out health and sanitation directives, quarantine enforcement, and infection control procedures. China was still implementing police sanitary departments in cities by the time, the epidemic started, and there wasn't one in Manchuria yet. So it is true that the North Manchurian plague prevention service was the first public health service in northeastern China and many of its efforts were still connected to policing the quarantine. Established were modeled after prisons with patients being described using the same general language as would be used for prisoners. Conversely, it is absolutely true that this plague outbreak and the North Manchurian plague prevention services had a huge role in the development of medicine and public health in China. The Chinese government quickly recognized the role of Western medicine in treating and preventing contagious diseases. During all this, it also started to adopt the general idea that the government had a responsibility to protect Public Health William. Do was a major part of this process. He helped found the National Medical Association, in China. In Nineteen Fifteen, he service secretary that year and then as president from Nineteen Sixteen to Nineteen twenty, he helped establish hospitals including six isolation. Isolation hospitals that operated under the plague prevention service. He also helped found the National Medical Journal of China and became the first Chinese person to publish an article in the Lancet is published work in the field of medicine included co-authoring a massive history of Chinese medicine and publishing that treatise on pneumonic plague that we've been talking about that happened in nineteen, twenty six, and that treatise was the standard reference on pneumonic plague for the next. Next three decades. He also published ninety two papers over the course of his career thirty, one of them on the subject of plague, and he was involved in a series of other epidemics in China, including multiple other plague outbreaks, and to outbreaks of cholera. Woo was nominated for the Nobel Prize in medicine for work on pneumonic plague, and especially the discovery of the role played by the target in its transmission in nineteen thirty, five, this made. Made Him. The first Chinese person to be nominated for a Nobel prize in medicine over his career, he was also awarded honorary doctorates from picking, university Hong Kong University, and Tokyo University outside of his medical work. Wu helped establish libraries and he amassed a collection of two thousand books that he donated to Nanyang University as the Wu Lien Duck collection. He also donated six works of art to the Art Museum of the University of Malaysia. Thirty one. Japan invaded Manchuria, and Wu. And his family fled to Shanghai. Then in nineteen thirty seven when Japan invaded Shanghai and his family moved to Malaysia that same year Wu's wife died of tuberculosis, two of their children had died as well. One at the age of sixteen in the other in infancy. Wu. Eventually remarried to a woman named Li Shu-chen and had five more children. Whose life beyond this point is not as extensively documented and?

"It's interesting because I feel like even that definition has changed since the last time that I thought about it because to me I think because I internalized it from my Cari- In the maybe even from church was that yes. It's the financial security. It's having you know good reputation within your community. It's having a a good job where you're known and you excel in that particular field and then become known for it. There's there's something that I think like. I just always wanted to be see. You know I always wanted recognition and always wanted people to be able to Acknowledge that. I was good at certain things And I think unless I had that feedback from people or that ballot Asian from people It was hard to feel like I. I had any measure of success so I think You know my success was excelling in my studies Getting my license being known as being very good at my job and I think if I had continued with therapy you know would have been to become a supervisor. Maybe someday to become a professor and you know like Israel just keep climbing and climbing climbing and now my sense of success is I think just much more general and much more open because I think I just want to be the most open the most kind the most good version of myself as I can be no matter what it is and I'm doing you know practically speaking. Gosh if I could just make a decent living acting get stag health insurance but honestly I think if if I just had the opportunities to do what I love and what I feel most alive with for the rest of my life and every time I take a project it's like you just WanNa feel like you gave it everything that you have so if I can say at the end that I was part of these projects that I really believed it and I gave. I gave them everything that I had then. That's enough for me. I don't know if I don't know if that's going to change next year. You know next. I don't know because I I think if I can hold onto that and just keep it that general. I'M GONNA fair a lot better in this path because it's so easy with the levels of this industry to say successes like getting that the ace Egypt representation you know getting the top agent. Getting you know the series regular getting Emmy Nomination Emmy Nomination Oscars you know like all of those things like those External Markers you know but I think if in the end if I can go back to that in turn learn to accept my own enough newness I guess I think that's all I really need. You know I think that's much healthier so good for you therapist. Right you know because You know there are people that are like let's say Constance Wu I. I don't know how old she was when she started. I'm sure she was doing indie stuff. And and whatever right and then she gets series and then crazy rich Asians and on the stuff and now you know people like slammed her right and it's like fair or not sometimes in any profession when you get up to some of the higher places. The spotlight is really on you. And it's I don't know if there's per practice for that right like how do you? How do you still maintain your sanity if humanity when you know every shoving a mike in your face and Paparazzi taking your picture I don't know if those people ever look back on some of the quieter days of their career. I had a chance to have lunch with David. Henry Hwang the playwright Right after the failure of his movie and butterfly and he'd be the Prince of Broadway with with a butterfly and He was nice enough to let me just kind of pick his brain. I I I just said. I can't imagine what it's like to be such a success in public like you've been and then to follow it up with such a public failure. Okay Yeah Right. Because that movie tanked and and he's the same person right. It's his story right and all this kind of stuff and I'll never forget what he said. He said You know when I was the quote unquote Prince Broadway. There were Sony back slappers and well-wishers that I couldn't even hear my own thoughts after a while. I was just hearing what everybody else was saying right. And then there's all these other people that wanted to ride my coattails at all this stuff is now that the movie version has not done well. Those people have pretty much disappeared And he said is not like I. I don't miss some of the success but it's like I'm much more able to hear my thoughts now and so I- treasure this time to Right so I think the peaks and valleys you know that sort of thing and I and I guess I want to bring this interview to a close by going back to the you're talking about really around in your life where you were struggling things Zion depression. I have to imagine as you're going to auditions and you know you're in between gigs. Right in all the stuff that there has to be potential to also feel anxious and even slip into two to depression. I mean can you talk about that? I mean what is that in. Are you handling it differently now? Yeah it's really interesting because when I mean I started acting as a way to heal reith from I from my depression and I think the first year and a half because I was everything was so new and I was learning to express myself and be open and I was discovering aspects of myself that I had previously repressed I I was feeling so much joy out feeling so happy and I think it was about a year ago when I started to feel that depression coming on again And I typically get that seasonal affective depression anyway so I started feeling that depression and it was And it was coinciding with kind of a slowing down of auditions a slowing down of momentum. Because it felt like I was doing a lot of things and I was getting you know like some some big roles I filmed in China The lead in a feature and then it was kind of like still and quiet relatively and so I think what I I had to sort of admit to myself that I was experiencing depression again because I was kind of like what does it mean that if that I'm doing something that I absolutely love and I'm pursuing my dream but I'm still experiencing depression. What does that mean And so I think what I.

"Please. Don't hesitate to let us know. Thanks a lot auburn coach. Hannah Wu is a person that I've known for over ten years I think In a very different capacity right Hannah. She's she's an actor but I knew her when she was a therapist. We were at the same church. And and then I kind of lost track of you. And then I kind of saw you emerge on social media as this emerging actress and I couldn't wait to get you here in front of the microphone because I felt like I want you to fill fill in the gap for me because I think the journey that you've been on and it's a very courageous one like it didn't take courage before and what you're doing but I mean some people from the outside Hannah would say well like you've completely changed done something else. I think that's fair right but I think yeah but I think there's there's another way of looking at it and saying no it's just kind of the next iteration of this. This arc that hand. His life has been on Where it's about humanity and story and you know getting in touch with things in yourself things in other people and in order to bring healing in the world. I kind of get that impression. Yeah yeah absolutely because I think you know it has been a journey and I've always wondered and even ask God. Why did I take all of these different stops along the way and I think going through it at each segment wondering is this what I meant to do? Is this what I meant to do? And now I honestly don't know if this is what I meant to do You know as an actor. I just know that it's something that I love doing. And I've never felt as though is just like a choice now that I've made that. This is what I wanted to for the rest of my life. If this world will have me as that you know what I mean. That's really sweet. I mean just looking at your background. Your resume It's much more like one of academic none an artist so help me out there. Yeah I mean. Education was a huge part of my growing up. You Know My dad is an immigrant. And he's a computer saw a hardware engineer and so when we came over his main goal for me was to succeed. You know academic success financial security. And then he he would have done his job and so yes I went through I was at Berkeley and I was a social major. I got my masters did entity at fuller seminary and then I went on to get another master's degree in clinical psychology and went through that whole process. Three thousand hours you know to State Board exams became licensed and that that was kind of the trajectory that my life was on was just higher education trying to help people through those means. I mean do you get an MD of? I have one too. That's that's no easy thing either. It doesn't require three thousand hours of licensing right but heavy theological studies bike biblical languages church history preaching Hamas. Medics all that kind of stuff. So not only. Do you have this kind of therapeutic side well even before that the social side but but it seems like your faith your Christian faith has been and continues to be Some significant element in your story. Is that accurate? Yeah absolutely I mean. I grew up Christian and going to a Chinese Baptist Church and then Chinese nondenominational church and it was actually in church where I felt like I developed as a leader where I developed even in the arts. I didn't do a lot of the arts in high school. I mean I played the flute and so I I was in band but performance wise. You know I was in youth skits at Church. I was on the worship team. I lead worship since I was sixteen and so I think it was the arena where I felt like I came into my own and back then in high school college people saw me as a leader and so they would invite me to lead sometimes to speak sometimes to lead worship And so that was where I I felt most comfortable in my life where I developed most of my gifts And then it wasn't until after I think I graduated seminary that I realize it was also the area in my life where I felt the most stifled or came across the most barriers. Sure Yeah Right. I mean one of the one of the biggest things that enjoy about being retired pastor now is no one can fire me right. I mean this podcast. I started at two years before he decided to retire actually ended up retiring couple years earlier than I initially thought would but I thought wow this this is how I sound. Well known can fire me this. This is actually can who can make friends with just about anybody They don't all have to. Have you know all my beliefs or whatever? I yet I I still a Christian but I'm really curious right and it's just like oh I could. I could live my entire life and never be able to express what I'm really thinking right. Yeah and I think there's maybe a parallel with acting too is like there's less of a stifling as you as you say. I think there are so many lanes within organized religion. And you know that I think even as a therapist. It's like okay. You can listen but you can't talk right right. There's all these kind of things. And they're they're those lanes there for a reason but I begin to really cherish this capacity to have a space where I can actually be authentically who I am without worrying about a gun to my head right. Yeah what was that because I you know in in moving from theology to therapy to now acting like it was such a drastic change and almost like this awakening or did you experience that when we began to feel like you could freely express what you thought and ask the questions that you wanted to ask. Yeah and I would say not worrying anymore about being accused of being too progressive writer on all this all these kinds of criticisms within the little bubbles and and I felt like Yeah this is just my show and I'm not going to have to be balanced and fair and real life. I don't like talking to certain people they I'm talking to me. So why would they invite them to you? Know be in front of my microphone now so yeah. I definitely see that the other thing I really see clearly now is ambition can really lock you in so the higher up you go in whatever field. I don't know if this is true about acting but the the higher up you go in organizations Christian or not the the less you can actually say what you're really thinking because you represent the organization and I totally get that. Yeah so now. I have friends that are president of this and CEO. Of that right. And I'm like I'm part of me. I'm really for you because I know you can only have organization speak now. Yeah right and I got a little bit. You know when I when I started working part-time for fuller I was told well. Now you represent fuller so you can't put this on social media and put that unlike really ten hours a week I get it I get it right so one of the things. I'm I'm so looking forward tubes. I'm in my last three weeks of teaching my last class at fuller. Because that's my last institutional organizational responsibility right and those like look out world. There's more more still holding back. Anyway I wanNA be about me. It's about you and so I feel like you're you're describing experience that was very formative for you and yet at some point you've found it restrictive. Yes right now. Let me ask you a question that I think only another fellow Christian would understand. I mean when we think about our life we also have this God thing in there and it's like has of your journey included wrestling with like what did God make me to be like you know the the the God's will thing yeah right yeah and how do you how do you understand that. Now I think I have a completely different understanding of that now and I can't say that I have a solid grasp of calling of this idea of calling at all and not only do I not have a solid grasp. I'm actually very okay. With not really knowing and. I think it's been yeah like when I first felt this `cau- and and put that in quotation marks to ministry. I think I was sixteen. I had just come from my first short term mission trip and I had you know. That's life changing. You're in this group. You're you feel like you're doing something good in the world and you come back and you just you want to give your life away. You know for that purpose of helping others and spreading love and all of those things and so. I think that started me on this journey of wanting to help people in some capacity as Cliche as that sounds But my parents being again valuing education like instability yet stability. They said okay. Well you have to go to college first and then once you graduate college if you still want to do this ministry thing then you need to go to school for it and so I went to school for it and I think I just. It never occurred to me during that time that I wasn't supposed to be doing ministry. I just went. I graduated in. May and then I was down at Fuller in Pasadena in June I started. I just took off when I finished The master of divinity in three years. Just you know like I was on this track. I was determined. I was focused and there had not been any barriers up until I graduated because people would recognize the gifts that I had and they would encourage me along that journey but when I graduated and I also got married and then I went into churches. That were More conservative and predominantly white and. I think that was maybe the first time where I realized. Oh it's not just smooth sailing that just because God has called us to something doesn't mean that it's just the doors are gonNA open up because I used to say you know I felt God's call me to something to ministry and then but it was sort of the men of God or the Church of God that stopped me from being able to do it so I thought I because you're woman because I'm a woman and then also because I was Asian and so for years. I think I really tried to fit into what I thought they wanted me to be. I guess in order to belong in order to be accepted in order to maybe maybe they'll see me and they'll see what I can do and they'll finally acknowledge the training and the experience that I have But it just never really happen and so I kind of had that first crisis of identity and calling there and so I ended up going outside the church on. I started volunteering at a Rape Crisis Center online than I did crisis counseling. I was hired as an advocate there. I did crisis counseling. Three sessions For about a year And after those three sessions that a client would come in to work with me on they would move into more long term therapy and so I thought you know I wanNa know what happens after those sessions. I WanNa know how healing happened in a long term. And so that's what got me back to school to pursue my Clinical Psychology degree into to get my license in marriage and family therapy and I still remember the first day of my practicum and this was only like the two semesters in. I did this. Iran this group out a woman shelter and got back to my car and I looked in the sky and I said this is what I was meant to and I still remember that because I think the actual therapy part of therapy I loved I loved like just being with people But as I did therapy those three thousand hours worked in a lot of different nonprofits. Different capacities Working with different clients and specializing in trauma. I I notice that. Maybe the secondary traumatisation from Sitting with those stories and not necessarily working at trauma informed organizations that I was burning out constantly. I was struggling with my own anxiety and depression and I would just forced myself to to press forward to keep doing it doing it and I went to all sorts of different organizations and until I just realized like there's something that isn't working for me because I found myself in a major depressive episode. Yeah and so when I at that time when I realize how bad it was I quit without having anything lined up which is not like me at all. Reprints are thrilled. Well I mean they I think they also realize like care about you. They do they do. Yeah everything everything that. They've done every expectation and everything is always been because they care about me and they do want my happiness so I think they recognize like okay we and they recognize that there was hard you know. They knew that it was hard. And so when I quit and I didn't have anything on my agenda you know I thought to myself what can I do? What can I do to heal myself? Like if that's GonNa be if I'm going to actually allow myself to have this time. You know to heal properly..

"Hello from wonder media network. I'm Jenny Kaplan. And this is encyclopedia. Britannica today's leader is the only female female emperor in the history of China though she implemented major reforms expanded Chinese territory and increased trade during her time on the throne. She's remembered one of China's most controversial rewards. Let's talk about Empress Rusi ten. Woo was born in Shaanxi Province in six twenty four. Her mother descended from a powerful family and her father served. As a chancellor of the tongue dynasty her family grew increasingly wealthy over the course of her childhood and Wu grew up in significant privilege though it was quite uncommon during this period for women to receive a formal education. Wu's father insisted she break the norm Wulan to read and write and was instructed in a variety of subjects including auditory music and poetry that we're usually reserved for men who was also an exceptional beauty. When she was just fourteen years old she moved to the royal court to become one of the concubines of Emperor Tight Song Woo was first given a job working in the laundry when the emperor realized that his new concubine was both educated and quite brilliant? He made her his personal secretary. This Pope Woo at the center of state affairs and increased her exposure to the politics ticks and power players at the Empire during that period Wu began an affair with the emperor's son though the two were apparently deeply in love it was impossible for them to be together. Because Wu was a concubine of the emperor and the Emperor's son was married when the emperor died in six forty nine c the era he was succeeded by his son who was known from then on as Gout zone in accordance with common practice and the other concubines of the deceased emperor for were sent to a temple to live the rest of their lives as nuns was in love with and now as emperor he could do what he pleased leased so he broke all conventions and immediately brought her back and made her his premier concert. That didn't please. His wife gave birth to Tucson's you sons in quick succession and then in six fifty four c. e.. She had a daughter but soon after the baby's birth the little girl was found strangled in her crib. Woo accused the emperor's wife of murdering the baby out of jealousy claiming that the wife had been the last one in the room. The accused was subsequently found guilty and exiled woo was then promoted to first wife and empress of China and her sons became the next in line for the throne. Interestingly some later Chinese historians believe strangled her own baby and then framed the emperor's wife for the murder to get the wife out of the way more modern historians however seem reluctant to draw that conclusion as Empress Wu was reserved in public but it was common knowledge that she held real power. This troubled many of the emperor's Ministers and councillors who believe a woman holding such power upset the balance of nature. Her shortly after she took the throne. An earthquake rocked country. The haters took this as confirmation of their concerns concerns. Woo disagreed with their assessment and dealt harshly with those she saw enemies by sixty C E. Wu's husband had become ill and sight impaired so she took over the daily business of running the empire. She made all major decisions on her own including about a series as of military campaigns on the Korean Peninsula when the emperor died and six eighty three. Who installed her eldest son on the throne? Unfortunately for him them he didn't get along particularly well with his mother. He also had a wife with her own thirst for power eventually had her son charged with treason an exiled along with his wife who replaced her exiled. First son with her. Second eldest son didn't last long either and was forced by his mother to abdicate. Late in the year. Six hundred ninety with no sons left. We went ahead and took the throne for herself adopted. The name emperors eight ten she. She became the first and only woman to rule China alone and by her own authority. Her new chosen name Zeh Ten means follower of the heavens bins laws during her reign. Woo ruled with an iron fist but also made much needed reforms expanded both territory and trade in China. Woo overhauled the education system by standardizing teaching methods and creating a core of professional teachers. She improved the system system of agriculture by redistributing land. More fairly building irrigation ditches and reforming the tax structure to reward yield who also attempted did to remove nepotism for military appointments and instituted a program of required military exams to ensure that commanders were qualified to hold their positions. She even reopened the Silk Road Trade route which had been shut down by plague six ninety seven we was increasingly paranoid paranoid about those around her. She also spent most of her time with the series of young lovers rather than on governmental affairs though it was common practice for emperors to have a Harem of young women at their beckon call. The public was outraged by lose affairs. Probably because of her gender Wu's paranoia Arin Oye eventually led to a court purge anyone she believed to be disloyal was either exiled or executed by the year seven. Oh four remaining court officials had enough. They murdered her favourite lovers and forced to abdicate in favor of the eldest son. She previously exiled woo who was already l..

His stage name. ODBC BEEBE was derived from the nineteen eighty martial arts film old dirty and the bastard okay ODBC was among the most popular members of the clan clan who a lot of high sales and a lot of guest spots on other albums like he featured on like Mariah Carey Song which was a big deal so he was considered very entertaining. And I'm provocative while being profiled for an MTV biography he took a limousine with two seven children to New York State Welfare office in order to cash a three hundred seventy five dollar benefits benefits check and then there was a lot of Fascia media about that. I do remember that We'll dirty bastard died in two thousand four from an accidental drug overdose two days as before his thirty sixth birthday. So Oh my God.

I don't think so like I feel like a lot of this. Just kind of threw US most like in high school. You know what I mean. I think I don't know maybe I. This is like from a past life or something that I listened to a lot of Tang in my past life so ODBC son Bersin. Unique Jones who was born in one thousand nine hundred nine goes by the stage name young dirty bastard and he has been performing live with the ten clan. Okay and looks just like they can really kind of eerie. That's weird yeah next and and I got I got a little soft spot here. This guy might might be one of my fav- you're okay. Method Man Okay yes so. He was born Clifford. Smith Nineteen seventy-one. He's the youngest member of the Tang clan in the first release a Wu. Tang solo album on called tickle TI. L. Okay in two thousand seventeen method man revealed on Iceland. Talk show that the album's title is an acronym for taking into consideration. fedaration all lives. Oh maybe it was. Maybe it wasn't. I mean when you see it on the album cover. It's like method tickle man and then it makes it look like it's saying like like methodical man which is which is like cool. Yeah Yeah but so. He took his tag name from the nineteen seventy eight film method man which was also also called the fearless young boxer. His career has gone on to be one of the most successful. The group highlighted by platinum sales and a grammy. For All. Be there for you slash your all that. I need to get by with Mary. J. Blige oh I remember that song. Yeah method man is also great.

In two thousand seventeen he became the CO host of celebrity battle rap. Wrap show drop the MIC with Justin. BIEBER's wife Haiti Bieber. As KOMO's I feel like he's really there to give the credibility. Yeah at Haley. BIEBER is there to fill space. Maybe maybe we need. We need someone with long hair up here. I don't know we need someone. Someone who's the physical opposite of method man. And you know what Yeah I did I did it. It's fine. Life is a rich tapestry. Is Fine all right. Next is Ray Kwan. He was born Corey. Woods in nineteen seventy. His nickname is the shift because he has lyrical flavor and also apparently had the ability not to cook cocaine and crack rock okay at some point rate so his lyrics contain extensive. Use of New York slang often delivered an aggressive fast paced manner. He's known for his storytelling about wealth. Power and prestige drive from the illegal drug trade. His influential solo album was called only built. Four Cuban linx. It's often credited with initiating the mafioso rap phenomenon of the mid to late Nineteen Ninety S. I do not know why this title is called. This only built number four Cuban links L. I. N. X. I mean why they're they're on a different level than US absolutely like. I'm not supposed to and you know what I'm perfect likes likes sitting comfortably in my ignorance of this. But it's like it's like often called like one of the best rap solo there of course and again on this album is also known as the purple tape because it has a very distinctly colored cassette tape when it was released a purple tape. He also released an album into that in two thousand nine called only built for Cuban linx part to his other nickname. Is Lou diamonds.

Kwan's only built for Cuban linx and he later released his debut album Hieron to critical acclaim mainstream hip hop press credits. His second album Supreme Clientele with saving the Wu. He's released twelve albums more than any other member of the group. In the early days of ten clan he'd never be seen without a hockey mask on. Apparently the real reason for this was because he was wanted by the police in relation to a felony charges. They didn't want to get caught. One way hiding from the cops. Yes so the cover of Ray Kwan's only built for Cuban linx was the first time goes face appeared appeared without his mascot home. I WANNA cover so goes. Fiscal has played fictionalized versions of themselves on everything from thirty rock to walk hard thirty rock. The ghost faced running. Ghost's face in thirty. Rock is one of my favorite bits.

I don't know we need someone. Someone who's the physical opposite of method man. And you know what Yeah I did I did it. It's fine. Life is a rich tapestry. Is Fine all right. Next is Ray Kwan. He was born Corey. Woods in nineteen seventy. His nickname is the shift because he has lyrical flavor and also apparently had the ability not to cook cocaine and crack rock okay at some point rate so his lyrics contain extensive. Use of New York slang often delivered an aggressive fast paced manner. He's known for his storytelling about wealth. Power and prestige drive from the illegal drug trade. His influential solo album was called only built. Four Cuban linx. It's often credited with initiating the mafioso rap phenomenon of the mid to late Nineteen Ninety S. I do not know why this title is called. This only built number four Cuban links L. I. N. X. I mean why they're they're on a different level than US absolutely like. I'm not supposed to and you know what I'm perfect likes likes sitting comfortably in my ignorance of this. But it's like it's like often called like one of the best rap solo there of course and again on this album is also known as the purple tape because it has a very distinctly colored cassette tape when it was released a purple tape. He also released an album into that in two thousand nine called only built for Cuban linx part to his other nickname. Is Lou diamonds.

He's released twelve albums more than any other member of the group. In the early days of ten clan he'd never be seen without a hockey mask on. Apparently the real reason for this was because he was wanted by the police in relation to a felony charges. They didn't want to get caught. One way hiding from the cops. Yes so the cover of Ray Kwan's only built for Cuban linx was the first time goes face appeared appeared without his mascot home. I WANNA cover so goes.

"So while in china. If you have a new concept you have to find a way to explain it with the words you have had for a thousand years really it's my favorites favorites because you end up with delightful names for things so like so like a cell phone is shoji. A hand machine. Really computer is a d. now an electric brain. Oh gosh the other fund part. Is that once you figure out how this all work to sort of guess really eight for example. What might have kangaroo called. Oh if you had to come up with a new name with no new words so i guess you need a jumping some years. It's a bag rat rat. It's bag rat. A sloth. I love is a tree lazy. I love it so really what i think about it but what a slough is off lazy tree lazy bag rat. Oh my gosh. I love it skunk. What might skunk be. <hes> stink rat knows it's a stink weasel so you have to come up with ways to describe things without ever ever creating a new word that's delightful so this decision didn't create entirely new characters words that have never existed before is shocking. This is a shocking thing to do route but she understood the power of language and how important it was to create new concept and to take hey cold of that power in the most fundamental way <hes> her name jao is one of those characters that she created. Oh that's is a made up her own name. Which is why it's especially important. I think to call her by her correct. She embraces buddhism taoism. Now ism which brings her closer to the common people she builds a famous pagoda tower called the big wild goose pagoda again the way you name things the big wild goose pagoda it was the biggest buddhist temple in the world and it may have been the tallest building in the world at that blow folk one hundred eighty feet tall in seventh century china. I've been there and i've seen it. Where is it. It's it's in modern day sheehan okay which was chung on her capital and it's still extremely impressive and it's lost three of its stories in the sixteenth century during the earthquake so it's only seven stories. Tell now and it's still impressive cool. This is my favorite invasion. She created probably the world's first suggestion box really and she put this specially designed suggestion box out in the public square. No way anyone can put a suggestion in the box for direct consideration by the emperor. I love that it's amazing going anywhere but in a society that it's as strict least stratified to give people a way to leapfrog over dozens dozens of layers of bureaucracy that's astonishing. That's gonna make the bureaucrats really mad well. Ironically the bureaucrat bureaucrat who was tasked with creating it was also the first victim of the other aspect of this suggestion box which is another good example of her dual brilliance billions. It's a suggestion box. It is also a tattling box of a corrupt official. You are welcome to to submit your story and his name to the suggestion box for the whole to review well again providing massive amounts of information yeah for her secret a police to maintain the tightest possible control over her court. Yeah she sort of makes change. Her hallmark change enjoy the stability with her where other emperors will have a emperors institute rain areas so they will name the era and it's very important auspicious name for their rain <hes> and when of rain era begins time starts over you are literally starting time it it is the first year of reign era yeah peace and prosperity right. There is some emperors who for thirty years the only we have one rain era. She has about dean different rain ariza. Whenever something good has happened that she wants to announce to the whole empire that something awesome has happened pendants because of me. It's like the entire empire is on who joust standard time jao starts a new rain era every couple of years now. She understands the power of a big party. You always have to institute a new rain era but also this legacy that she's building of change as the stable yeah and so she is installing new rain eros four things like the year after she officially became emperor she sent out a proclamation she had really grown a tooth and therefore her is establishing a new rain era which will be called longevity throws a massive party with a parade with one hundred thousand the soldiers on parade building giant public monuments that are rebuilding ancient monuments that have been lost in destroy s. only better yeah and writes an anthem four all of the people to sing at the opening of the monument. I mean it's she understands lance public spectacle and she is like media savvy core and then later in her reign. She has a taoist taoist wizard decoction elixir of immortality when she drinks this at this time. She's in her late seventies. She feels slightly better than she once again inaugural new era now there's this orientation of the larger state calendar to her extended physical south. She's willing to take this role extremely seriously. If you cross her you're gone but not take herself too seriously. She has a huge temper and a huge sense of humor when she first becomes not emperor but grand dowager through a couple of different rebellions and one.
