Fresh update on "wong" discussed on Our Body Politic

"Good data? What does that even mean for me? When I think of good data, I think of representation and access so representation in terms of ensuring that the voices Of those who are multiple e marginalized within our communities are adequately represented in the data in ways that are meaningful beyond us demographics, right and access in terms of developing multiple and body minute approaches to thinking with the communities in which the data is collected for and buy in the first place. I think largely often as a community rooted scholar, right? What compels me to build with projects like Jen forward is this desire to move away from get keeping models of data collection that we so often see in academia? In order to access data you need to have Often proof of university or institutional affiliation or thousands of dollars to pay for the data set, which limits who has access to data. And so I think about this idea of research justice right to challenge these extra activist logics of academy and to recognize that Communities have long been stewards of their own knowledge, construction and data production. And so, Dr Jackson pick up on some of these threads. There was a lot of information and what Dr Wong was saying talking about having an approach. You know, that is either extractive or community based. How? How does you know? How do you Look at kind of the purpose of data in this question of good data. Yeah, I mean, I think that would after long. This thing is really, really important. Because specifically on this idea of research justice, I think that there are a lot of ways that a social scientist We set out to answer questions, but we don't often understand that we're talking about real people's lives on their experiences in their day to day actions, how they go to work, how they feed their Children, how they navigate health care how they access economic resource is what's really important about working with Jin forward was this was the specific need. That this organization was started to answer on. So what I really want Tol. Think Highlight here is that when we talk about good data, I always talk about this Daigle method. This is the garbage in garbage out method. This goes back to my engineering days. And the truth is, is that what you put in is precisely what you get out. And a lot of folks think that when we see these Pools and the surveys that we see the results from on national news media that they are reliable and that whatever we see there is necessary representative of the majority of Americans are experiencing and thinking, But the truth is, is that the ways that we conceive of who counts as a citizen and whose opinion matters and whose lives are actually a part of politics? All of that matters. When we think about how we collected it and how we interpret it. So we're not here to give voice or to tell the story, Right? Rather, we see ourselves very much those learning from folks who are already experiencing the types of injustices and the types of concerns that we amplify with our work. So, Dr Wong. One thing that I think we should just be transparent about is that we intersect with a lot of different types of media. And a lot of people who do traditional political media would be like, Oh, my gosh. Why are these people even talking toe organizer's? Doesn't that tape the survey s O. Dr. Wang, How does that play out in your mind? It's interesting. You mentioned that right because just thinking about The team who makes up Jen forward. A lot of us have different hats on all the time. Or we're scholars were educators for activists, organizer's cultural workers, and so I think we bring all of that into how we shape And see the data on Just thinking about the kinds of questions that come through the data right Each time it's fielded. It depends on the pulse of the people depends on the pulse of the movement and what community organizes an activist are focused on a particular moment in time. That's critical right so at the team We really try to stay nimble and think expensively as possible about academic and non academic collaboration. And so just an example of right after The murders of George Florid Briana Taylor last summer. There was a lot of momentum or round abolition, policing de funding the police So in response, we launched a survey on protests, racism and policing. Because of what was unfolding on the ground and the kind of data that organizer's at the time needed for testimonies and things like that. And so we see it, as you know, intend. Um and Largely interconnected work. And I'm just going to wrap up with you, Dr. Jackson. What gives you joy about this work? It's you know, you've gone to a lot of trouble to get fancy degrees and all that stuff. What makes you engaged? Oh, my gosh. I love this question. So You know, I am one of those people. A group in Oakland, California. You know, I grew up a queer black girl, um, in a city that was gentrifying and, um, I experienced a lot of things that I didn't have the words for. I didn't know that there were terminologies that we're referring to my life chances and To the ways I was navigating the terrain around. I didn't know about these kind of notions of racial threat that scholars were publishing in 1949 and all of that on DSA. So for me what I really enjoy about the work and about being in community with the folks that I work with a gym forward eyes that it's really gratifying to be able to see parts of my life. On that have shaped who I am as a person and as a scholar and researcher reflected in such a meaningful way able to kind of use this platform and this work as a resource for communities that also our birthing young black queer folks, Young black quick girls, folks at multiple margins of identity. S so that's probably the most significant part of it for me, and I'm excited about what the young people are doing in their communities and how they have been reacting to the work that we're doing. I'm excited for what comes next. So are we and Dr Jackson. Thank you so much. Thank you. And thank you so much. Dr Wong. Thank you. That was Dr Jen.

Some investors clearly saw in announcement as a direct shot at intel with reported twenty six billion in revenue permits data center group in two thousand and twenty.

Was Godzilla vs Kong the Return of Movie Theaters?

"We spend all of the pandemic grousing about how movie theaters died and then movie theaters came back back back to life. Godzilla vs kong resurrected movie theaters. What are you have to say about this at true easter weekend. Right it's great. I'm glad that people went to the movies. I hope safely and had a nice time watching spectacularly dumb but in my opinion just like deeply deeply stupid in the best way whether this is like the return of movie theaters full stop forever is something i think you and i should discuss. He'll discuss it so three thousand movie theaters showed god's versus congress weekend it made forty eight point five million dollars domestically it also has done quite well overseas. So why did that happen. What was it about this dumb but fun movie. That we talked about last week was shay. What is it about is it is. Are we having a cultural human communal desire to get back into theaters. I know that. I have been having that and i've been talking about that for a year. Now is just that this was a movie that was incredibly legible to the broadest number of people literally it's called godzilla vs kong. These are very understood terms. What do you. What do you think accounts for this. It's a little bit of everything i think. Which is the boring answer but sure. Oh theaters are open again. They weren't in most places. Well i shouldn't say in most places. They were not in los angeles where i live. I can really only speak tim. My corner of the world as recently as a few weeks ago and so this is widely available.

"This is a story that for many on wall street or those who watch it closely while they say it defies logic before friday most people had never heard of arcos capital management. It's a family office managed by bill. He made headlines in two thousand twelve after paying a multimillion dollar fine to settle an insider trading case running tiger asia but other than that long flew under the radar so you can imagine the shock waves across wall street when it was revealed that his fund was going through the liquidation amounting to tens of billions of dollars now he had faced a multitude of margin calls from at least six of the prime brokers that he dealt with that caused for selling in many of those in the media and technology names as well as chinese internet names that you mentioned earlier. The financial times is reporting that he was able to amass positions with eight to one times leverage and in some trade that ratio skyrocketed to twenty two one. Now the report cites people familiar with wong's agreements that type of leverage though is practically unheard of its multiples higher than even the riskiest of funds out there and it means that even a small move downward can force significant pressure in this case once in a decade event as a source called it regardless of the idiosyncratic nature of arca ghosh's demise it's already raising questions about transparency the side load prime brokerage system and regulations governing family

Israel and the International Criminal Court

"Last weekend there was a major decision at the international criminal court in the hague that made it more likely that the body will try to prosecute israelis for alleged warcrimes. There's a lot to unpack here about the body itself. The charges against israel the players involved. And what it all means for the jewish state joining us now to help make sense of all. This is barack reviewed a correspondent for axios and the diplomatic correspondent at israel's while news barack. Thank you for joining us. Thank you thank you for having me. So first of all. I feel like the terms of the international criminal court. The is the hague they get tossed around as though everyone knows what they are. But i'm not sure that that's the case. The sec is part of the un is at a different international body. What exactly is its purpose. What is the i can tell you. For a fact that the vast majority of people have no clue and by the way. I don't blame. Anybody is not even for foreign policy. Wonks for international law wong's that's really a small sect in the world so it's not surprising that most of the people really don't know what to talk about. Let's explain the international criminal. Court was supposed to be established more or less after world war. Two as part of the lessons learned from that war but at the time the cold war was just starting and the tensions between the soviet union and the united states is not allowed to get a consensus to form such an international criminal court so instead they decided to form the international court of justice. Also in the hague. Many people get confused and mix up the to the international court of justice deals with more. Let's say principled cases between different countries while the international criminal court is like any criminal court. We know okay which means that it has suspicions. There are suspicions against a certain person for alleged war crimes and this person if he's indicted he's tried by the international criminal court. The international criminal court was only established in two thousand two. As part of the drafting of what is known as the rome statute the rome statute basically said what the international criminal court should investigate. What are the crimes that the food try people for and all the countries that negotiated destroyed at the end of the day had to sign it and approve it in order to be members of the international criminal court re in the us and you and israel have something in common probably many things in common in that neither of our countries signed the rome statute. So what explains that opposition. Why was the. Us opposed to joining the i c c so the irony is that israel was very involved in the negotiations leading up to the drafting of the rome statute and the establishment of the international criminal court. The reason the end of the day that israel did not join the icy and did not sign their own statute was because one of the things that several arab countries pressed very hard to include in the statute as grimes should be investigated by the international criminal. Court were issues that have to do with transferring population into an occupied territory. And as you know when israel built settlements in the west bank it moved its citizens into an occupied territory and for many many years. This was a main issue that israel did not see for example as a breach for geneva convention article. Forty nine in the fourth year neva convention is an article that israel decided that it doesn't agree with so israel. Basically defacto implements the fourth geneva convention other than in the west bank and gaza other than article forty nine because it has to do with settlements. Let me just ask this so one of the things that is illegal quote unquote under the rome. Statute is transferring members of population into occupied territory. And the reason that it's illegal is because like countries wanted to target israel for doing just that no the geneva convention okay from the late nineteen forties already at designated transferring of population into unoccupied territory. As something which is illegal okay. What happened here. was that at the end. You need to decide. You can't just decided okay. The icy sea will investigate any crime that we think at specific moment. It should investigate. No they wanted to Designate certain crimes that are. Let's say more serious. In order for the i c to be able to focus on the really most obscene acts of war crimes crimes against humanity crimes of those kind of things and when they negotiated the rome statute arab countries decided to press for adding this issue of of a population into an occupied territory as one of the things that constitute a crime that can be investigated by the court

The next of 1,000 cuts: Hong Kong activists on trial

"Rock. It's a scene. That's becoming ole too familiar in hong kong this week more pro. Democracy activists are on trial before appearing in court. One of the accused lee. Cheuk yan said hong kong's rule of law is deteriorating because he became a in some political him eight other profile figures have been charged with organizing and participating in an unauthorized. The charges stemmed not from hong kong's draconian new national security law but from the protests prior to its introduction in june twenty nine thousand nine millions of hong kongers began taking to the streets. They were opposing and extradition bill but they saw as a grave threat to the territory's delegate independence from the mainland government over months. The demonstrations escalated vandalism and violence were met with tear gas and rubber bullets. This week's training focuses on one particular protest so on august. Eighteen two thousand and nineteen mole than one million. People gathered to protest despite very heavy rain that day. Su lin wong is a china correspondent for the economist and is based in hong kong so the police had granted permission for people to protest in victoria park but they weren't granted permission to march on the streets but because there was so many people showed up inevitably people flowed out but the eight hundred august protests. Actually marks the first tig free weekend in a month so really was extremely peaceful. Compared to many of the protests that had come before it and so if that days protests remained peaceful wire or activists on trial for for being a part of it. They're nine high profile activists who on trial charged with organizing and participating in unauthorized and so they faced penalties of up to five years in jail. It's important to know that they haven't been charged under the national security law which was introduced after up. These protests occurred so the prosecution is accusing these group of defying police. Instructions encouraging crowds to watch and causing traffic disruptions. While the defense doesn't contest the facts that helped to organize and participate in the peaceful assembly. What they're arguing is that. The charges violate a basic right to assembly guaranteed under hong kong law and they are challenging the constitutionality of the polices ability to ban assemblies especially when the protests were directed at the police themselves. And you say that all the defendants are are high profile. Parts of hong kong's democracy movement. Yes so interestingly. This particular case is focused on an older generation of pro-democracy activists in hong kong who are generally considered to be moderate and who believe in trying to change the system from within by for example running for parliament in contrast to a younger generation of protesters who we saw take to the streets in two thousand nine hundred eighteen. So the fact that it's it's this group of older per democracy campaigners indicates the dominant is trying to crush the democracy movement as a whole as opposed to going after particular protesters who a particularly violent the two most high profile defendants in this case. Are martin land. Jimmy lai so muslim is considered the father of the democracy movement in hong kong. He's now eighty two years old. The other high profile figure is jimmy. Lai who is a media tycoon and runs a pro-democracy tabloid in hong kong and his despised by the chinese communist party. And so how do you think this trial will go so two of the nine have pleaded guilty to the charges and the remaining seven have pleaded not guilty to the sentence for the to pleaded. Guilty is expected next month and then the trial for the seven. He pleaded not guilty. Expected to last two weeks and so courts in hong kong still have a relatively high degree of autonomy and as a high standard of evidence it's expected in cases so people hoping that the courts will will still remain as independent as they were known to be prior to the protests as you say targeting these fathers and mothers of democracy in hong kong is quite telling so i think the outlook for democracy in hong kong is extremely grim and while some supporters did rally outside the court on tuesday since the national security law was introduced me last day. Her beam very few protests harshly because of covid restrictions but also because there has been a real layer of fear that is settled across the city. People have been arrested for holding up blank posters and slogans that we heard all the time on the streets in two thousand and nineteen have now being labeled seditious

Apple and Facebook are fighting over your privacy. What it means for you

"Apple and facebook are lashing out at each other in the debate over privacy. That could have huge ramifications on you. That's what this all means. Roger chang of this is your daily charge helping sort out this mess between apple and facebook is our social media reported queenie wong welcome queenie. You're having me so. This sort of the basis of this feud for us. What are apple facebook. Actually fighting about so apple is making this update to the software that runs. Its iphones sometime in the spring. And basically it's requiring app developers to get permission from users to track them across apps in websites that aren't owned by that company. So you would see this pop up. Come up in for the facebook app that says facebook with blake to track you across you know other apps and websites and the reason why for personalized advertising. And you'd have to click. I allow them to track me or doing. Allow them to track me on. Facebook really isn't happy about that change because it sees it as sort of an attack on their business model. How they make money right. I understand from a financial perspective y. Facebook would be so bothered by this. But what is the argument that they're making the how this might hurt consumers because ultimately at the face of things when i look at this for consumers having more transparency or having apple. Be more proactive. About how you're being tracked seems like a good thing. Jesus argument is small businesses. You know the really kind of pinning this more onslow. Businesses rely on ads in order to serve the right. Ask the right people you need all this data about who they are Sometimes ads are targeted based on your age or your geography and when consumers see ads they will buy these products from these businesses Fees argument is that if there is a movement away from personalized advertising than one. It would be harder for an app like facebook to offer. Its services were free without a subscription cost and then to these acts would be forced to make up. You know the money somewhere else in so that might be more in-app purchases that might be a subscription fees and bear four move in facebook's mind would make the internet more expensive for consumers essentially the arguments still is making now. It's interesting that they make that point especially calling in small businesses. Does that tactic. The amazon also uses about how damaging amazon also hurt small businesses. It's interesting how big tech likes to serve us. Small business as a shield for their arguments. What apple what. What are they saying about. The criticisms that facebook has lobbied against them. Apple has jim. is actually weighed in on this on twitter and he said you know dared is trying to give people more control over their data and facebook instill serve targeted advertising but they have to get permission from the users. So apple says this. Isn't you know about the making more money or you know making things more expensive for consumers or harming small businesses but this is more about giving users more control about for a over their data and so when they see this pop up bill now like this particular act tracks across multiple websites and other apps About like to you when you look at these arguments respective argument watts which one holds more water. Which or which one you think elliot's will will resonate more with the public. Well i think right now. Part of the issue is that for facebook. There is a reputational problem. I think that's part of the reason why. Facebook has come out swinging swinging against apple after the cambridge. Analytica scandal They've really had to sort of like repair. This image that they care about five ac- because that scandal was about data sharing and for the majority of people. Most people don't like to see ads unless it's during the super bowl and you know there's also these conspiracy theories facebook listens in on your conversations on to serve you ads because they're targeted advertising. So good i mean. I've even had an instance where like one time i was eating yogurt and i'm on facebook Vaccine brand of yogurt was on my facebook feed. So they're asking me pretty spot but they also can be somewhat creepy to her. So i can see why facebook is concerned but i it other companies have also weighed in and they're not saying the sky is going to be falling like facebook saying got it and ultimately how do you think this will actually affect consumers will want i think most people don't think about the business side of you know i get this app for free. Why you know what is sort of the trade off.

These are general spider facts. So sebastian gets to call on any spider. He wants which gives him a lot to choose from. There are like roughly forty five thousand species of spiders and to give you a sense of context. Think about an animal that we see all the time or type of animal mammals right there are only about six thousand or so species of mammals that covers literally everything from shrews to wales to rhinos compared to the forty five thousand as of spiders nest so many spy seen mammals.

Along in here is pretty much everywhere. See this is one of my favorite things about Planet earth is basically. Wherever i go. I can find a spider because they are spiders living everywhere from the inter titles on right at the ocean's edge to forests to dryest desert's where they build sand tunnels under the sand up on mountains not as regular mountains all the way up to the slopes of mount everest and everything in between a hold on he just said there are spiders that live on mount everest.

Did you know that there are multiple types of spiders who live at least part-time underwater. Like i'm talking seawater freshwater. They're out there. I mean you must find that amazing because you can barely swim. Wow wow wow. Wow emily everyone else was getting to talk. Smack didn't turn honestly fair but her full fare but herve okay. Okay so anyways. There's this spider that lives underwater called the diving bell spider and they basically make a sifi like underwater dome of air. That's their air pocket. Go there when they need to breathe and the rest of the time they just go out and they bring a little like bubble of air around their lungs which on a spider on the bottom of the abdomen. Bring a bubble of air around with that and they're just walking around underwater. They are catching food under their catching fish catching small insects and their entire life every part of their lifespan from birth to reproduction to death. Okay even i. A person who doesn't think about spiders will admit this incredibly cool that spiders are really living all over. The place got range qualm. They got rained. I don't mean like as a group of species. Some spiders legit have ranged. in fact many spiders can fly. I mean technically it's called ballooning but they're flying get out what they'll do is they. Basically will just release silk into the wind and it goes up and basically turns into like a kite. But when you're a light enough to be a spider something that's like a kite is basically like an air balloon out of here and okay. Here's the thing though. It's not just them catching the wind. There's evidence that spiders can sense earth's electric fields and take advantage of that to shoot up into the sky

COVID's Impact On Chinese Fine Wine Consumers

"I'm going to be talking about the impacts on china's why market on how those impacts affected consumers buying behaviors. First of all this year. The buzzword hearing is locked down on but in china and we talk about lockdown. It's in the strictest sense one household household can only allow one person to go out once a day to purchase all the necessities unlike in europe. Or in the us where you have the luxury to go out and to do a lot of chores. In china it's really strict on areas. That are most affected by the pandemic. You're not even allowed to go all. There's a community officer who is on standby just to send all the necessities to you to your door. So this is the contact where talking about when we want to understand kovic impact on china this is also the circumstance under which a lot of the business have to operate for three months from late january to april. So this is something i want to want. Everyone who's listening in to bear in mind to keep it in the back of head on back of a mind to understand the corvettes impact. So i upon. I'm going to talk about cova impact on china's wine imports. So what happened to win. By the end of january china had locked down the whole country as a result restaurants hotels essentially closed and miss the most important chinese new year sales for anyone wondering how big and how important is chinese new year for a lot of wind merge and a lot of the a lot of them who i talked to told me chinese new year wine sales account for roughly twenty percent or even up to thirty percents of their i knew sales so imagine seven day period was lots okay and then imagine. That period was attended for three months. That's the challenge facing a lot of the importers in china and of course logistics were delayed because quickly the pandemic spread from china to the rest of the world Even when china in may and june recovered from the pandemic countries are like ryan's italy and you were in the depth of the pandemic dot affected global logistics while because we have the latest figures from china customs at a showed import volume declined by thirty percent. Thirty point eight percent to three hundred forty seven million leaders in poor value declined roughly thirty percent as well to u. s. one point eight four billion. This is quite significant. Because i want to joe attention to the fact that last year china's one import value already declined. We saw roughly ten percent job in volume terms and one percent in value terms because of the economic slowdown and trade war between china and was so the downturn. We are saying this year is a continuation of what happened last year as well. So that's you know might have a projection for what is to expect on what's to calm right okay. So next one. I am going to talk about because of the job in wine. Imports and how it affected merchants consumers and the price points are was sane on the shelves merchants of course when you have stalks that are meant to be depleted for chinese new year. That a stew setting in the warehouse. What you do when you have uncertainties facing forward you'll become a more cautious your becoming more cautious with your spending what to buy how to budget. That's natural response. A market exit suddenly. We're seeing a lot of merchants exiting the market. Unfortunately one of the examples with sane is from jovial. Many of you guys familiar with jovial so basically joe view is a wine and agricultural importing company backed by the tech giant nenova. Five years ago when it entered the market to stop two important should be winds. It costs a lot of fanfare and naturally they had the peak around twenty key bruns. Included a the biggest Organic winery madonna in in chile. And also jong here moe's fabulous wines earlier this year due to the pandemic it's general manager said they're suspending the wine business. This is not a small one time importer. we're looking at a company. Dots actually has the scale. That's the direct impact of the pandemic. I'm coffee cards. Of course a lot of wineries and importers were having zero sales in february in particular consumers when you have job uncertainty because of the pandemic what are you gonna do. You're becoming more cautious with. You're spending your accounting or the non essential standings unfortunate wine is counted as numb- essential on like you know maybe in france or italy or in the us consumers of course they're trading down if they are buying winds at all. They are really budgeting what to buy. You know what is the best value. What is the most affordable wine outing the market this can be reaffirmed by the expert on expert data we just from burgundy from january to september export volume to china shop to by roughly thirty percent and in value terms jumped by roughly around twenty percent and we see some increases in areas where Or shop elise. Those kind of increases assertion guan crew premier cru in terms of red and whites that Racing price-wise wines priced under one. Hundred orrin be is the most popular category one hundred. That's about fifteen dollars. So what happened to on trade and why on trade matters like any other. Why importers in in the war in europe or in the us traditional ones heavily dependent on trade on restaurants and bars and hotels to win. The pandemic happened especially in china. Were the strictness of the lockdown is so severe on so carefully scrutinized at enforced restaurants bars were treated during the pandemic on china. We're talking about country that has ten million restaurants chinese new year. Like i said completely shot during the seven day. National holiday dining sector alone lost five hundred billion. That's seventy six billion. Us dollars lockdown. Measure of various strictness were enforced from end of january to april lasting three months. Even in some cases restaurants were allowed to open. Are you can only do delivery service delivery service it go to. It's a growth factor at a hall make makeup for what's lost from in dining services and heidi loud. That's another biggest restaurant chain. China lost to five billion to stirring saint periods just to give you an idea of the severity of on-trade unfortunately among all the alcoholic beverage categories. Wine was hit the hottest. This is not said by me. This is actually coming from one zooming secretary general of china alcoholic drinks association which is the official drinks association in china. That's regulate Anything related to alcohol in china. It's very powerful organ and he basically said homecoming function for wine was essentially non existent as heavily relies on social consumptions such as restaurants to the decline with shoppers. A wong stall too short before giving any thinkers on the decline. But we can guess it's melted doubled. It's not a single digit

"Sutherland Roll Wong Christian a lot of tech companies on the list, as there are every year I find it so interesting. That the companies at the top are so diverse number one would bein, which is a consulting firm. Number two is in video. Obviously, a tech company number three is in and out Burger what all three of these companies have in common. Yeah, it is. It is cool to say such great representation across different diverse industries and really shows you any company in any industry could be the best place to work. You know what we seen, particularly this year. That's bean. A new phenomenon and some key theme across all of our best place to work winners is that you know, with the pandemic, with clover going on employers who put their employees first and particular health Well being and safety first did really well in this year's list, you know, among among many other things that you know about this place is work with us have traditionally done

Interview With Dr. Laura Huang

"My wife is retired banker and She reads different things than i do. I'm going to pastor seminary professor and we tend to have this morning routine where we get our coffee and we go to respective wings of the house and we just start going through the news. One day in january. My wife comes to me which he never does and she shoves this article in front of me from the harvard business school. That's hard work isn't enough how to find your edge. And she says you need to get lower wong edged turning adversity into need to get on your podcast and this is coming from a spouse who never to my podcast. And so i go. This is unusual. And i read the article and let me tell you i was fascinated. My guest today is dr laura wong. She is an associate professor at the harvard. Business school before that she was assistant professor at University of pennsylvania's wharton business school. I am so delighted that we're actually having this conversation. I scored major points with my wife. Will i have your wife to think. Then here i was thinking that you wanted me on your podcast but thank you tour. Well i didn't know about you. let your book. But i teach leadership i'm entrepreneurial we're recording this in september while this ongoing pandemic and shutdown is going on and my wife and i one of the conversations we do have is. We're trying to kind of understand how different groups and individuals can thrive going forward. And i think that's what really caught her attention in this. That's one of the lessons. We've been married almost forty years. And i learned that listen very early. So who did you write this book for and why did you. Yeah i actually. I actually didn't intend to write this book. I mean it wasn't one of the things i mean in the back of my mind i was like. Oh maybe someday. I'll write a book but it wasn't actually something that i consciously thought about intil. Because i had been doing research for a really long time unsettling studying like disadvantage inequality and people who are underestimated. And i had been presenting a lot of this research. And i'm kept coming up to people coming up to me and saying you know like this is sort of. What can we do about this right because a lot of my research is is a little bit depressed right. He's like talk about disparity disadvantages. And how people have an how there's all this inequality bias in the workplace and entrepreneurship and just sort of been lies and so people would say like. Hey will this is depressing. What do we do about this and you know. How do we sort of level the playing deals and the thing is all the solutions that i that that that were out there that that i knew about from from research were all these sort of structural solution the system level solutions things. What i what. I mean by that is like you know. Let's have more nerdy critic. Hiring practice or west diversified the top management teams or have more diversity in terms of who gets to be mentors and and so it was like all these solutions where we had this sort of wait around for things to change right for the for the for the structures insistence more meritocratic so it was found that it like leaving people frustrated still because there were these outside in solutions of there were a lot of things that individuals could do as they were waiting around for for things to get better as they were waiting around for things to get more meritocratic and so the last couple of years of my research has been has has all been around like what can individuals do to sort of slip things for themselves to to empower themselves so that they can turn the perceptions stereotypes and the bias that have about them how they could flip them in their favor and create their own edge. And so that's really ridley. The thought behind this book came from and then as writing it was really very much more. I mean i kept thinking about you know people who do people who have sort of gotten to shutdown over and over and over again and people who just keep putting in the hard work by me because we've been taught from a young age like we're work hard work hard moving working hard but yet for whatever reason they're frustrated because they're hard work isn't leading them to the success in outcome that they were promised that they thought that they would achieve. And so how do we actually make our hardware requirements for us. Recognizing that accepts outcomes aren't really about hard work level there about the perceptions in signals in stereotypes of others.

This is the story of the samurai porn murders which is not the official name. Oh my god. This is everything. The valley samurai swords porn at the acting. The acting culture the real acting culture in l. a. gone horribly wrong. i can't wait. This was a subject i wanted to do earlier in the year. Opted not to based on the hotbed of los angeles. And i just didn't feel like getting into something. This strange and sad when ellie was in such an upheaval and i just chose not to put that out into the world. Even though i put other things out into the world via this podcast. sure. I just wasn't feeling it but i was kind of excited to discuss it. Yeah well it's a new year. New ballgame new weirdness. I'm ready for it. Stephen steve driver tom. Tom dong the stage named as they would like to be called in an entertainment context which we are. They were known as mopus. What is a mope. I'm assuming from what i've gathered that it's men that kind of hang around and mope around porn studios hoping to kind of get work. Well i've never heard this. I thought it was an acronym lake men on people everywhere like like the. I don't know. I don't know what i thought. It was the porn industry. And it's you think like oh this is. It's easy anyone could do this. It's really not and have a history from doing a different podcast where i've interviewed conversations with a lot of adult stars not necessarily about the sex part of it because that's pretty evident but personal lives. Would it was like how it affected their relationships and their families and what people thought and what it kind of takes to sustain it and it's very difficult industry and you can't just walk in do it m- although i mean if you're comparing it to being an astronaut maybe you have to jump through a lot less hoops. Yeah i think and again for my very limited time in sex work in people who worked in porn or worked in the sex industry for a limited time like there things. You don't like myself included. What is a mope. I don't know there are things that you don't consider. There's a culture around it that's both all enveloping an stigmatizing and like think about all the times that you're in a sexual situation and all the pressure that's put on to begin with in a personal sexual situation. Now add a bunch of other people time and money invested in your performance. Like it's fucking hard. It's it's difficult to end when you have people that are on the bottom end of that. The bottom of that ladder which you think this ladder is already a bottom. Depending on people's views about sex work the adult movie industry or the adults adult industry general. It's into be at the bottom of that. It's gotta be it's gotta be kinda tough so you have to be the kind of person that is waiting in the wings essentially to wait in the wings. Yeah for sure and also men's specifically in and again. I want to just acknowledge sex. Industry is run by men for like every type of structure of the top of it in the adult industry again. Please prove me wrong. I would love to hear. That is a man but to be a man in porn is like a tier. You don't get paid as much you're not needed as much like hangers on on a porn set gape wants a little bit different to even gotten there yet but that is you have to be very specific type of person like you said to do that and want to do that and just like show up to do that. I guess. Full disclosure uncomfortable for some reason with and that's fine if you are adult movies sex work. That's not important to the story. I'm not getting into too much detail with that. There's plenty of other strangeness. So just just want to warn people. You know me like i keep pretty square. Jason does not he. He's not going to give you the discuss details that maybe you desire or come back next week and you'll get some dirty details if you don't desire them. You're in a good place. I it's really not integral to the story but when this gets picked up by news outlets and you know it really it really umbrellas like what's going on. So it's it's part of the story but it's not important to it and i won't be getting into too much detail although i could the certain things i probably could get into but it's not important to the story so i'm just leaving it out and that's for you to kind of check out if you want to. But in case you're you're sensibilities are wherever they're at a new year's resolution that you don't wanna hear no samurai literature. We're not samurai stuff will stay. Okay okay if you are if you made a resolution that's short. Stop listening now. Steve driver. Tom dong they appeared in several movies together as mopus and they will see here. In the movie as the mope the turmoil is is not part of the movie itself. And that's just what you are. It's okay so you're just an actor in the movie but you are known as a mope until they like.

Applications and Impact of CRISPR/CAS9 in Bioprocessing

"Today. I'm joined by fanling. Wong director of cell line development and protein sciences and zane starkey wolf director of corporate development from wishy biologics. I'm excited to be speaking with both of you. Today about crisper cast nine technology and its possibilities in the discovery and development biopharmaceuticals. We will also conduct a deep dive on its potential impact on bioprocessing and bio manufacturing. Welcome fanling and zane to the podcast. Zinke randy glad to be here. Thank you brandy before we get too far and because of our audience is quite diverse with regards to their experiences in life sciences. Fenland could you please provide some background on. Crisper cast nine as molecular biology. Gene editing tool. Yeah sure so christmas. Nineteen action system is actually adapted from a natural procure arctic defense mechanism to bacteria to simplify. What could spec assistant can do is took leave the face she and i was. It has been incorporated into the bacteria routine on so that to keep the fate from reproducing. Crisper is actually akron stands for clusters servers regularly interspace. Shot had a dramatic repeats and kissed by the most well well-researched variant of the class outcasts nucleus. Which has been used within the gene editing function. So i think the research community have actually adapted this mechanism to revolutionize how we perform the genetic modifications Not only in pro arctic. But or so. You can arctic sales since the system was first published and zane i know from our previous conversations that you were saying that crisper casts has an intriguing origin. Would you be able to elaborate. Yes interesting research can be found on crisper that dates back to the late. Eighty s Other work has been conducted throughout the first decade of the two thousand however it wasn't until two thousand twelve that two pivotal research papers were published in the journal. Science one by jennifer down nov uc berkeley and manual shopping chair of the university of vienna and then another pianist by doctors cross unanimous and sickness at vilnius university. All demonstrating the use of bacterial. Crisper cast nine as simple programmable. Gene editing jewel. But i know that the story doesn't stop there does it no. It certainly does not in less than a year in two thousand thirteen. The labs of dr fung jong and will chong of the burden student. Mit dr george. Church's lab at harvard reported success in adapting. Crisper cast nine for genome editing in your area cells and both mouse and human cells. And i know that we could really spend an entire podcast. Just on the history of crisper so i wanted to stay focused on the technology here. There's been a lot of excitement since discovery about this molecular biology tool. Can you explain why. Sure the remarkable functionality of this tool is that it allows scientists to target specific locations within the genetic code of an organism to cut out or replace a segment of dna due to the high specificity and exactness of utility. The applications have far reaching potential. And it has already become a much to walks game changer. In many fields of life science because it enables efficient cost effective and precision gene. Editing that has a wide utility for development of biological therapeutics including so and gene therapy disease modeling diagnostics agriculture industrial biology and more. And this has me thinking just about alternatives to crisper casts altogether Are there other ways to edit genomes. And if so what makes a crisper cast so much better. Great question brandy many of the other gene editing systems utilize today such as zinc finger. Nicholas's talons the use of mega nick. Liaises or other by all vectors like a. Iv compared with christopher cast nine are in the end very complex and time intensive often requiring many more steps and thus are more costly as well also and this may be greatest benefit. Is that crisper chess. Nine as a low off target affects profile which again makes it an ideal gene. Editing tool justify along with that. I've read many Recent advances using crisper technologies. Could you elaborate a little bit on those. The advances are extensive and continuous. We speak one example includes crisper a crisper i which are techniques to up and down regulate gene expression using dead cast nine dead cast nine removed the nucleus capability of cast nine but still allows for the targeted binding to a double stranded. Dna sequence of interest using the highway. Specific guide are a that is one of the cornerstones of crisper genome editing. I'd like to add that another application. It's a using crisper for hamas directed repel or so called a the are so this technique in simple terms can repel a double stranded. Dna break which is very important for genus ability. But what does the crisper made. Sdr can do is that. It cannot only to repel a break. But or so crew. Eight the break and then replace it with a small mutation or as elijah sequences so this techniques have actually substantially opened ability or researchers to make gino added more quickly and more efficiently

"The connection of medicine and food. I think that's the fascinating is that is that connection that connection between medicine health cuisine and deliciousness. Do you feel like you've learned to understand chinese cuisine more. Can you give me some kind of a roundup of what you've learned so far what i've learned so far ultimately is very much i think that's it. That's the most important thing i've learned is that you know the more i dig into it the more i realize how little i actually know but what i do know is that you know. Food is is always being very central to chinese culture. So you ever you're the emperor or you a the clock or you just a normal household eating the ideal consolidate the idea together. That's always been a very very important central theme for us in china chinese culture and how that's kind of been interpreted over the years. I think that's really interesting fascinating discovery. I'm wondering notice. You have been taking policy in academic research. I'm wondering have you got some inspiration from their. Do you feel like thus giving you something some new ideas when you're working in the kitchen absolutely as a chef. The most difficult thing is trying to be remotely innovative in. I think we live in a very small globalized world. Now where you know. I click of a button on on instagram. You can look into everyone else's kitchen and so to be able to find ways of being innovative or coming up with new ideas is actually very very difficult in two thousand twenty.

The first treatments for aids were created as a direct result of her tireless research. Let's talk about. Dr flossie wong staal wondering if i did the right thing leaving home would i fit in what i be accepted. The united states is a country of immigrants and that people of diverse ethnic origins are one they welcomed into his fold. Flossie wong staal was born. Yee ching wong on august twenty seventh nineteen forty seven in china in the wake of the communist revolution. Her family fled to hong kong. Where flossie attended catholic school for girls there. Her teachers encouraged her family to change her name to something more anglicized. Her father chose to name her after a typhoon. That had recently hit the area. Flossy showed early academic prowess and many of her teachers encouraged her to pursue a career in science. Despite the fact that no women in fosse's family ever had careers of their own. Fossey's parents were also on board. The backing of teachers and family. Flossy path was clear at the age of eighteen. Flossy moved to the united states to attend the university of california los angeles. She earned a bachelor's degree in bacteriology with honors in just three years and then earned her. Phd in molecular biology from the same university in nineteen seventy-three flossy moved to maryland to work at the national cancer institute where she started researching retroviruses viruses that put their own. Dna into the cells of a host. She worked with prominent scientist robert gallo who was spearheading research on a mysterious disease that had just entered the american population aids in nineteen eighty one cases of rare illnesses like uncommon cancers and lung diseases or popping up in small numbers in the gay community of new york and california scientists linked these diseases to acquired immune deficiency syndrome or aids. But they still didn't know what caused aids flossy and robert gallo searched for the cause in tandem with a french research team at the pasteur institute in nineteen eighty-three both the national cancer institute and the past store institute discovered the virus that would later be named hiv though gallo claimed to have discovered hiv. The pasteur institute accused him of stealing samples for his research. This led to patent disputes and litigation. Clouded the discovery ultimately gallo admitted in nineteen ninety-one the samples he used in his research. Were tainted by samples sent to him by the french lab so the two groups were working from the exact same virus. Despite the controversy surrounding the discovery of hiv flossy continued her research and wrote dozens of groundbreaking. Papers in nineteen eighty-five she was the first person to clone. Hiv which led to the first genetic map of the virus and a method for developing blood tests. For the disease she continued to break down the viruses components to discover what each did which lead to treatments like the widely used easy. T- flossy move back to california in nineteen ninety to continue her research at uc san diego center for aids research and became its chair in two thousand two. Flossy co the biopharmaceutical company. Mu saw where she served as vice president and chief scientific officer for genomics. She shifted her focus to work on treatments for another pervasive and difficult disease. Hepatitis c. she also continued to work as a research professor of medicine at ucsd in two thousand nineteen flosse was inducted into the national women's fame. It's such an honor to be included in such a distinguished group of american women. I could never imagine this growing up in hong kong when the women of my parents generation really had the chance to go to college. And in fact i was the only one of the children who did so on july eighth twenty twenty. She passed away. She was seventy three years old.

"Guest. Today is joshua wong and joshua we want to welcome you to our podcast. You are like the quintessential kind of person we wanna talk to on this show. Well thank you so much for that nice introduction. Yeah now let me explain why i say that. It's not just hyperbole. You are clearly someone who has been gifted with immense creative artistic abilities This this podcast started to really showcase asian reckon creatives and you are that in spades my friend and in time you know as a lifelong christian myself and someone who was a pastor for more than forty years. I'm also intrigued with kind of your spiritual journey and wrong. Even who don't have a particular affinity towards christianity. What have you. I think they're also interested. They're curious to hear what those of us who have that that commitment and at the same time had had to kind of navigate various challenges and roadblocks to us. Still kind of being in in that lane. I think they're also curious to hear that so. I'm so excited that we get to have this conversation. Well good i. I am glad to be here. I'm glad to share with you. My journey well Let's start with the fact that you were born in another country and then how you ended up here sure. I was born in hong kong. And when i was four years old my family in nineteen sixty four Decided to immigrate to the los angeles. So i just Follow along basically as a four year old kid. It was interesting. I mean. I look back. And i definitely think there is it not only. Was it a journey across you know Part of the world but it also forever changed My identity from being both american. Us citizen and also retaining by chinese background. And you are able to utilize that whether they call bike bicultural and bilingualism in your profession quite well yeah you know. I grew up in a home where my father was a minister in the jellicoe church so That really helped me retain my chinese language ability. Even though i was i was i came at such an early age. And i don't write or read the way. My older siblings do but I was always my father's translator in church so the yeah so my father was a was a really really charismatic minister he always joked laughed and everybody loved him and because of how fast he speaks in how relevant his messages. It was really really hard to find an interpreter that could keep up with him so That helped me retain my chinese. So how old were you when. He roped you into being his interpreter. That's a very good question. I have to think back definitely. It was more around when i was around. Probably nineteen or twenty years old. Okay yeah yeah. So he burn through a lot of until he. yeah well. It was around that time that my father's church started having an english more of an abc congregation. American born chinese talk So because of that we had to have the two languages. But i think prior to that i mean this was this was you know he. He was He was a pastor in la. I think since the seventies so back then it was mostly a different world back then but when we started having a english more english speaking creation i had to pitch in. Okay see so. I'm kind of the reverse of new generation can't speak a word of chinese. I think of things in the moment have a manuscript right. And so the few times that i would have an interpreter. I would just have the worst time. They had the even worse time interrupters but ken. What's wonderful is the fact that i think that that is in itself a conversation because even to this day you find a very very different difficult Interpreter difficult time to find interpreters in chinese churches because because a lot of interpreter A lot of people are are not really raised in america. They are like still very chinese and so they interpret they are two lane fee and they don't go into the concept they just keep like being literal. So that's why even to the stay. It's frustrating to hear someone trying to translate. Yeah now is your dad. Still alive no no. He passed away about fourteen years ago. Oh okay What was his name is name. John wong john wong. What would the churches that he served. Shot chinese alliance. Yeah yeah i. I was friends with the english. Pastor of the one. Out in the valley larry remarked. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah. My father started that shirt. Oh my goodness really yeah. My father was the chinese billy graham. Oh in southeast asia. Yeah he he before he became a full-time evangelist at the end of his the latter part of his life he was a church planter. Okay well he started about. I actually my mother just wrote a book about him. And i'm translating the book but he is. He started about a dozen churches and one of them was in the san fernando valley. Okay yeah. I figured there had to be some kind of cross connection their dad. Yes i thought. So when i was thinking about you i thought you. There is some kind of you know. It's a small community. Yeah yeah so while you're doing this you're also ever since you were a little kid. You're showing this artistry right. This creative bent Was your dad or mom ever expecting you to follow in his footsteps and then by then you're at art center college of design in pasadena very good question because My father never never gave any of his children. Any pressure in the ministry. Yeah so There are five kids and none of us are in the ministry except for me going boards of professional up profession so No i felt like all ing about five eighty five years ago. I felt the calling. Because i i. I wanted to resist being minister because i saw on my father had to live his life and and the difficulty of being a pastor though. I really really appreciate. You can So i really do not want to be a east at all but my journey also took me to the piscopo church. Which was the. I never really thought of either. It was really my only choice because it was the episcopal church that accepted out. Bq people yeah. Yeah so was your father still alive when you came out and then we got married and and all of that yes part of it My father was a wonderful wonderful pastor. he was not your typical chinese pastor like stuffy pastor so in a out of five of june i think in i have had the most similar personalities so we got along really really well so when i Fought and fought inside my heart about coming out and thinking that god at booed change it didn't work then. I was ready to give god and i was on the brink of giving up god and.

"Alot from wonder media. Network. I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia will Manteca. Today we're talking about the first major American movie star. She openly criticized racist typecasting her accomplishments were groundbreaking and many of her critiques still. Ring true today. Let's talk about the prolific Anna. May Wong. Anna was born in Los Angeles in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five. Her birth name was Wong lead song. She initially attended a majority white school but transferred to Chinese school to. Escape racism she. From her classmates. Anna often skipped class to check out nearby film sets pushing her way to the front of the crowd to get closer to the cameras. She came up with Anna May Wong as her stage name by age eleven. And she was fourteen when she appeared in a silent picture, caught the red lantern. At Seventeen, Anna played the lead role in the toll of the sea one of the first movies and color. Anna's most notable early role was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, she played in the hit movie the thief of Bagdad. Though. This part was a stepping stone for her career. It's also emblematic of the problems with Hollywood casting that Anna would soon after vocally advocate against and interviews. In the thief of Bagdad, Anna played a treacherously in a subservient role wearing very little clothing. Anna appeared in more than fifty films throughout her life and she often struggled with subservient. typecasting Hollywood also repeatedly granted lead Asian roles to white actors and cast actual. Asian. Actors. As villains. After working in the United, states for several years, Anna had had enough of Hollywood's biased casting. So she moved to Europe. Europe was more receptive when it came to Anna's acting ability. She started films throughout the continent with reporters praising her transcendent talent. One notable appearance was in the British movie. Piccadilly in nineteen twenty. Nine After a few years in Europe and a decided to give Los. Angeles. Another shot she appeared in the famous nineteen thirty two movie. Shanghai Express opposite. Marlene Dietrich. I must confess I. Don't quite know standard respectability that you know newborn how But Hollywood hasn't really improved. It's racist casting methods. Anna, auditioned for the lead role in the gutter. A film based on the novel about a family of Chinese farmers despite Anna's film credentials and glowing reviews the role went to the white actress Luise Rainer who are makeup to make her look. Chinese Anna was devastated matters were only made worse when mgm asked her to do a screen test for an unsympathetic Bein role in the same picture and I refused. Frustrated once again, Anna left America and traveled to China, in an attempt to perform in traditional Chinese theater. But there she faced harsh criticism for her Hollywood work which was perceived as degrading to Chinese culture. Anna. Returned to America defeated at age thirty five. She took a break from making films for many years. then. In nineteen fifty one, she made history by becoming the first asian-american to play the lead in a TV series. The show was called the gallery of Madame Lute Song starring Anna as a mysterious detective art dealer for the show's ten episode run. You might notice lead character has Anna's birth surname. The role was truly created just for her. Unfortunately no copies of the series exists today. Anna hope to continue acting, but she faced several years of failing health. She passed away due to a heart attack when she was just fifty six years old. Though Anna. May Wong is often overlooked as an icon of early Hollywood. She was an incredible talent who never gave up her fight for equal casting. As always, we're taking a break for the weekend. I'm sad to be closing out leading ladies because it's been such a fun being this month. The good news is next month going to be great to. We're talking all about musicians.

"Yeah with the first person in your family of any generation to go to college and you began your studies at the University of Waterloo in Canada where you enrolled in the master's of accounting program why why accounting as opposed to engineering or being a doctor or a lawyer. I read that most of the CEO's in most companies back then anyway finance background and I just wanted to be the boss the top dog and actually the reason why I ended renoir blue. In their high school you visited like three universities or maybe just one college is not like it's crazy now where your kids go to. Twenty schools had three schools in mind and Canada and one was Western University and it was known as the Party School. And for anyone who spend your time with me. I like the party especially back then I was like I want to go to the Party School but I missed the bus to the school party. No Tonya harding. But for whatever reason I'm usually not but I missed the bus. The parties go and so the watching take off in front of the high school. There's another bus. I guess I'll take this boss. Necker hundred like where's this going to waterloo and that was an engineering school actually very famous engineering school. That a lot of Google engineers actually come from. We have an office there because there's so many great engineer. Donald Party School take one percent women. But that's that's what. I was thinking to be honest as a kid. That's all I wanted to. I want to go to this school working at fine cute girls and I got on this bus. Okay I'll just choice. There's no other bus and visit Waterloo and had this program. It was best an accounting. But they have this very progressive program. Where you go to school for twelve months straight. There's no summer and then you work for twelve months straight and school twelve months and in five years so three years of top one school and two years of full work. You get full paid. You get a master's degree very progressive. I don't know why every school maybe I was one of those kids. That didn't need summer. Whatever but I thought that was so cool and they had a very strong accounting program. That was good at math. I said okay. Well let's do that. That's how I ended up at Waterloo. But at the job you worked at while you're in school you were. It was a top accounting firm. You Gordon on the twenty fifth floor of one of the Black Tower in downtown Toronto. And I understand that you arrived every day with as you put it your little briefcase wearing a suit so Robert Wong in a suit what I would give for a picture of Robert Wong in a suit. You went to work in a seat every day but you know what it was like playing pretend a little bit like oh now. I'm a worker with a briefcase but I'm so excited about it. You had a stack of business card business card. I remember like Oh my God. I'm like adult but you're kind of a kid playing. No it was. It was actually. It was kind of cool and I do remember. I used to wear airing the day before had to go after an audit where had to visit a client. My partner pulled me into her office and said he just one thing. Maybe take off the airing when you go tomorrow and I remember saying no. I'm not GONNA do that. I mean they. They're harness for our brains. Say God there's no way why would I had? What's airing so I refuse to do it. Semi off anyway which testament to her but even though I was playing an adult the downside I was posted a little bit rebellious kid. You said that very shortly after you started you realize that you were falling asleep in classes and you've been studying accounting for all the wrong reasons. What were the wrong reasons? Someone once said people have three relationship. Work one is job one is a career and one is calling. Job is literally and there's nothing wrong no judgment against any of these three you literally just have to the paycheck to feed your family And then the career is usually more eagle driven where your self esteem comes from doing progressing. Get promoted do better than the next person but a calling is your work. What you do during the work actually provides us deep satisfaction or it's just translucent to you being and and you feel content. Doing that work. And I knew that accounting auditing even though I like math the day-to-day that was not satisfying. And then I realized well I should try to make sure I. I'm not just chasing this for profession to so by parents can be proud of me so I could afford to raise a family and not have to be like my parents who never saw because the opened the restaurant they had restaurants and they basically anyone who knows the restaurant business. No we're out of school and they're sleeping. They go to the restaurant at ten o'clock and they don't come home till midnight. By the time I'm asleep I saw them once a week. We had dim-sum. Noah's it so I didn't want that. I wanted to spend time with children in the models. I knew from watching all the shows like happy days and Brady. Bunch was that you have to get a job. You bring a suitcase and we're suit so that's already did but then you start reading articles and I'll tell you. I think there was a Vogue magazine. Article About Marc Jacobs. Who went to Parsons and fashion design? I'm like Oh you can do stuff. That's creative and make money and be famous so the so now you know how shallow. I really am boss. You know cute girls wjm. Yeah and money and you've got it all now right. Yeah but you know what's interesting? I told my mom when I asked them. I said Hey. Is it okay if I quit accounting and it was particularly? I'm probably proudest of that moment. In my life of all the decisions I've made because actually wrote some Jeanette tests and I was getting scholarships in the states for getting my MBA. Tad Tell my mom that. Hey I think I wanNA quit. Accounting and pursue more artistic career and and. I think the only reason why I was able to do this. I don't think I would have been able to do this at all if my parents at the time weren't financially kind of doing well so they're doing pretty well and only with that could have had the confidence even have it in my mind to do that otherwise it never would have done that so you did. You went to Parsons. We're following in immigrants. Who is very supportive to? I think that helped a lot. They may be because I was confident. Davor confident you know what maybe competent Imam. Actually another story coli forgot when I was in Holland. Seven years old. My mom one day. I don't know why she probably written horrible news that was happening in China Got Her upset and she kinda kneel down. I I to me Robert. China is fucked up what she was in English to know. When you grow up you have to go there and run their country Mike. Okay what a disappointment. I am But yeah so I think she fed me how confidence she believed her friends. I was the first born like could anything now. The thing about it. I'd probably give all the credit to my mom good. I like that. You ended up going to Parsons. You started as a fashion major. Is it true that you realize you had no desire whatsoever to make mattresses while you were in a draping class making dresses? That's absolutely true. Zero zero you know you have the idea of what something is in reality sets in and the first draping class anyone as you get. Muslim and you have a Mannequin. Draping stuff and you start cutting. I'm like I don't WanNa do. This aren't even close. I don't I don't even shop two years shoes so I'm not a fashion person whatsoever. But I was in foundation beer and which you do everything in photography illustration fine art and call a theory and it was amazing. I just loved every minute of every day at school and it would spend hours and hours in the library just eating up every photographer every artist every sculptor reading. I mean I never treat my whole life. Even though he studied hard I you know I always wanted to be very competitive. I just never doug that deep into education and self education. Yeah that's what I knew. I had to do something in the in the arts and in the story how how I got to be. A graphic designer was after freshman year. You have to pick your major and I remember sitting in the guidance. Counselor's office where you have to like industry. Also you to take your major and submit it and is now the last day I could pick. My major is five four fifty five at five minutes. I'm staring at this card with eight boxes. Fine Art Julia Design Interior Design Communication Design photography illustration and. I have no idea. I knew I didn't WANNA do fashion design but other than that I had no idea everything started amazing and then I just literally did crossing off the ones that don't care. Imagine you're love photography but do I want to do it every day until communications? I didn't know what that was. And it seemed like that's vague. Enough Open enough seems noncommittal. That's what I checked. And so I became a communication design major person and in that show up in the first year. I realize I'm dealing with type encouraging. I'm like we. I didn't know that's what this was. But but it's amazing and the end of the day you're in New York City. That's the other thing I wanted to go to Parsons. Because that's what Marc Jacobs went to school and I have to say like if I think back about how I got to wear it. Got To everything was not really well thought through or thought deeply through at all it was just you know random and you just try to do things you don't like and try to do more things you do like spend time with spend more time with you like and spend less time with we don't like and it was just feeling it through turned out pretty good understand that you had one of your first creative epiphanies while trying to buy an oral B..

"wong" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman

"At Design Indaba. We are in the art scape arena. We have been feted very properly and very generously by our hosts who took us out to a reception dinner Tuesday during which we had a nice little chat as we walked around the sculpture garden. And you said something. I've been thinking about ever since you told me that you had quite a lot of self confidence and it was something that you didn't know that you deserve to really have that. You had more self confidence than perhaps you should. And I'm wondering why you feel that way. I think it's true. I think there's two things maybe one is realizing that you're completely insignificant. Nothing really matters. Hold that truth I mean it really is the truth like you're really insignificant. We're actually going to come back to that. Then find on the other side. Also hold the truth that you are a miracle every single one of us that we're here. You are incredible miracle so kind of when you hold those things in your head and your heart. That's maybe that's where the confidence comes from starting to get to. I think maybe where it came from. As a child I moved around a lot as a child sooners born. I was emigrated shipped off to Holland. Hong Kong born in Hong Kong moved to Harlem no one when I was about four my parents. They were working Chinese restaurant and they weren't getting paid because a grandfather who owned the restaurant. House this house. My parents fed us as they weren't getting paid and he said well. I don't know we will never be able to open their own restaurant if we don't get paid so this shift me and my sister back to Hong Kong to live my grandmother while they went and worked and save money to restaurants so for three three and a half years went back to Hong Kong without my parents and I was pretty independent by myself. All this I was forty seven and memories of this. That's why I felt like my first bit of consciousness. Living in the little village the village is so little. When you think when you think of big city we lived in New Territories on the border of China. I could see China and this village is so old. Didn't have running water dirt floor kind of thing and the school was the church interesting story. I grew up Christian. Because that's all I knew and the class was every village with the classes of your six or year fourteen so it was literally a one room. Yes yes yes and then when I was seven the over the restaurant they save money. We're reunite with their parents to Holland. Holly was a small fishing village. Another interesting story there. Is that how Chinese people choose to open Chinese restaurant in Holland Anyway? Back then was get on the train off if this Chinese restaurant you get back on the chain until you get off the train and there's no Chinese restaurant you hop off and you end up getting there and then the my parents are crazy people. They're awesome They went to Canada for two week. Vacation in nineteen seventy six. At that time. I think Canadian dollars higher than American International City of the towers being built and they were invented. Oh well for kids. Have the best opportunity should learn English. They should we should Holland. Ten DID DECIDE TO EMIGRATE TO TORONTO. And so these emigrated in speaking English and so I moved around a lot and every where I moved. I'd had to sort of to not we devastated. Had the Khasi tell myself stories that I'm in school like okay? I try to be the attorney. Do the best math get good grades? 'cause telling Myself Okay. I'm smart. Oh I'm pretty good at running just for my ego probably to protect my ego. We'll tell help buoy up that sort of as insecure spirit. Yes insecure so I probably all comes from an insecurity and and also like when I was ten. I would go to the bank for my parents because they didn't speak English. Oh as a young age I was doing sort of going up things at the same time. I was telling myself all these stories about myself. The price up. So maybe. That's that's the real reason. Delusional Self Talk Eve said that the constant change as you were growing up helps you develop the ability to communicate without relying mainly on verbal exchanges. And what did you do instead of the verbal exchanges? Yeah I think I think you look you read physical cues. It's hard to imagine for most Americans. I mean that landing somewhere and you don't really understand someone you have to be with someone and survive two three eight hours at school in a foreign language so you just can't you constantly have to be looking for cues and you hear intonations so a lot of communication. I think happens at a subtext sub language level and actually interesting when it was in Holland had diary that I wrote in pictures and when I look at it now I have no idea what I wrote. I can't remember when writing but see the pictures I remember the memory. I have memories of conversations. I've had really detailed. They're all English but I know for a fact I didn't speak much at the time. So all the communications happening at this other level and I remember realizing that even people's expression of when you get hurt you know in in America you say Ouch in Holland you say ow and in China Chinese ego. It's all sort of similar but all very different So I think maybe that also may be realized how connected we are Eve stated that because you couldn't understand anyone and no one could understand you. You came to realize that most of the time whoever can listen the hardest is the best communicator. And I've had to learn that the hard way especially doing interviews now essentially for a living that in order to really communicate and have a conversation. You really have to listen and most people. Don't listen they just talk talk. Talk Talk for the other person to stop talking and then start talking again without having ever really listened. How did you train yourself to do that? I didn't learn a toll later told me that I think in my twenties that most people listen most people are have a little voice in their head. That's talking the time and while someone's talking that voices thinking about what you should say next judging filling in and assuming answer really listen you basically have the say shut up to that voice and really listen and it's so so important to relationship you kids parents coworkers. Enemies. Yeah more. People really really listened a much better place. That's part of the reason why I'm looking directly at you. But you're allowed to look a little bit at the audience because unless I'm directly interacting with the audience it becomes really distracting because I have to also not only monitor what I'm doing with you but also hoping that the audiences enjoying it very hard to be able to hold both at the same time and I also learned that my best interviews are when I am looking directly at the person if I do remote interviews which I rarely do anymore I usually will listen back and think. Why didn't I ask that other question? How obvious thing to have missed? And it's because I'm looking around and paying attention to other things which you can't help but do you know that I have this thing. I say I listen a lot horrible at actually. Remember anyone's names and I think it's because when I meet someone I think most people do this in the first couple of seconds and when they say their name. You're probably spending a lot of time. Just looking assessing here and your brain is actually doing all this other stuff and and really care about what your name was generally always ask after. We've had like a two hour conversations. Tell me Your name again. And then you have the space and time to actually absorb it as you were growing up Andrew Stand. You learned a lot about Western culture by watching television. What kind of shows were you watching? The most sublime best shows like Gilligan's island happy days Brady bonds. She was just what was on TV. But I'll tell you one thing when I grew up in Holland we had to TV stations and it programmed in start until ten o'clock nine o'clock or something in the morning and there was only on Saturdays so when a when is the cartoons on the weekend and curtains on every day. We really what you're talking about. Yeah what time did it start at six in the morning and I remember the first Saturday but didn't have school. I was so excited to watch cartoons ten years old. I woke up at five thirty in the morning except my alarm went downstairs waiting turn on TV and they had the bugs bunny and all that great stuff. You've said that even though your parents didn't exactly discourage you from a creative career in your family that option didn't actually exist. Why not so? My father was from that village. My mom was immigrant from China. She never went to school. Started working when she was ten years old was manager at a garment factory when she was thirteen. She got paid a dollar a week. I think and she lived in a room with a grandmother and the room had like three bunkbeds sickbeds twin size and they lived on the top bunk bed of one of the bunk beds and everything the rice cooker. Everything was there. And that's how the extreme poverty and my dad was and so for them. Making money was the was the only thing that was a career. There was no other goal. There was no self actualization to what you love any of that stuff. It wasn't until they actually sort of became middle class that I could even start thinking about that. Most people here lucky enough that you grow up and you think that you can pursue all these things but my mom would tell me stories instead of telling me stories about do something really moral or with convictions. Initiatives that Oh and this billionaire did this and it was all about heroes who are capitalist. And and so you know the professions. They know they're pretty ignorant. Was Like Doctors Engineers Lawyers Accountants and professors. I knew so. That's why actually studied accounting. I yes we'll we'll get to that in a moment you as an accountant you believed when you were growing up that you couldn't seriously pursued drying because that was for people who didn't get good grades yes more about that. Why did get good grades? So that's why you couldn't dry. That's why wouldn't become a pursue art. Yeah that's right but I just didn't know that they were professions for people who drew and so. Yeah with the first person in your family of any generation to go to college and you began your studies at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
