"Yeah, well, the funny thing about that, when you're talking about nature and talking about the Lord, you got to understand something with this, with the wolverine. And maybe God put that up for a reason. I had to, I had to put him down. Okay. But I wind up, he had three wolverine at three. They did. They have no more than three cubs, two or three. And, and after I put him down, it must have been a she, if she had cubs. Yeah. She was a she wolverine. Doesn't take care of them. Anyway, I found myself going back there every day, looking at those animals, looking at and wondering if they were going to die. And, and they were yipping and yipping and yipping for their mother. And I began to think, you know, they're, they're doing the same thing I'm going through, you know, they're suffering the same way that I'm suffering. And one day I went back there and they were dead. And I said to myself, this is what's going to happen to you. You're going to come on day. You know, I never, I never thought, and I'm not kidding. I never thought I would feel sad over the death of a wolverine, but you just managed to. I never did neither. I mean, but, but I tell you some happy moments when, like I said, I saw four generations of bird, a bird fell out the tree and I went back up to put it up. And from that encounter, that bird, the mother bird, they usually, they usually will, will abandon us if they smell human. Right. But for some reason I, I went back and I was, that was one of the trees that I would watch TV in and I just, the female bird, uh, got a feeling or something, a sense that I was not threatening. And she did deal with the birds and till the point that she went off, those birds flew to coop. They came and nest in the same tree and I was able to go there and pick up their babies without the mother even leaving. Uh, I went through that for four generations. Actually, that was the hardest part about leaving Canada was even my, the bird friends I had developed. Unbelievable. The only thing I had a feeling for was those birds. Yeah. So there's, there's moments, there's moments, you know, everything, everything, everything, sometimes things seem as bad, but it turns out good. Meaning that what I mean by that is that, you know, uh, of course, you know that Christian also, you know, you could, uh, God could, God could, uh, God can forgive you, but he doesn't necessarily have to restore you. Yeah. What I mean by that is you could be forgiven and still have to serve life in prison. Oh yeah. Okay. You understand what I'm saying? Well, it's like all those guys in Angola. I mean that, uh, you know, they, they loved a lot of guys there now. They love Jesus, but they're not, they're not coming out of there except, uh, in a, in a pine box. And that's what I mean. He could forgive you, but he doesn't necessarily have to restore you. In my case, he forgave me and restored me. Yeah. And, and I would be foolish not to do something with that gift.

While i was at google. I traveled a lot. I was always on the road. And i always said i wish that i could just be in one place and just have a slow paced life. And that's exactly what i gotta. I was able to read books. Do yoga all this other stuff. I rediscovered my love for writing for bringing people together and that's actually y triggered the growth of my coaching business. 'cause i i was only going to keep two or three of my clients because i wanted to travel and be focused on traveling and so while i was in ghana i started writing. More sharing started bringing people together in groups and that was the start of my group coaching. That was the start of like people got inspired from stuff that i wrote in reached out for one on one. Coaching and to speak at conferences workshops. So like my business thrived from that and then it also just helped My relationship with my husband because we were stuck in a very small room together all the time and we learned to work with each other in such a small environment. you know like. I'm so strengthened our relationship so that would be my one takeaway for everyone is no matter. What your situation or circumstance can you look for. What the gift opportunity is. I think that's fantastic advice and information. That always made me wonder during like kobe. Like with people that are married like you guys are no longer going to your jobs and be doing a a nine to five that your home with the people that you love and i.

"To get love when he grew up was by getting an a plus or making sports team or scoring point right and so he was so afraid of failing because he associated that. As if i fail my parents will not love me and so it was working around that relationship with his parents and on the positive side like his parents were still alive so having that conversation with his parents and really getting understanding because he would say all these things. Like gal Me they don't need they. Don't you know i don't look. How do you know that he's just do and helping. And so what we did was work on. Have those conversations with your parents taught. And what he did was he eventually did start having open conversations with his parents success achievement the pressures and for them they pushed in the way they they did because they came from nothing and they didn't want him to suffer in that way and so they always felt like education. Success had to come from like achieving in being the best and that was all they knew and that was their story right and so by him having those open conversations. This parents used able to heal those experiences that he had not notion of failure so with helping people that have those that experienced those issues with their parents is the realization with them. Kind of understanding. It's not their parents fault on why they feel with the feel. It's more of understanding that your parents did everything they could possibly do to help you become successful. And that's where the the gap is where people are missing is to understand that and then be okay with the fact of bad nature. Yeah and so for everyone you know. It's about empowering you to understand that you own your life you own the stories and that you can rewrite your story so on of the things that i work on a lot with my client is to identify the stories that they have about their life..

I mean yeah that kind of influence that kind of like that ability just to persuade. Just these were merchant people to act to me. I think that's fascinating. I completely agree and imagine if people had believed in him before he could've used that brilliance in a positive way rather than this negative crazy. 'cause he was latched onto his past. He didn't know how to work through those emotions and understand why things happen. And what he's looking back is i don't ripe his he's rationalized with with his adult mindset. Yeah so so that. That completely agree. And i know even when i talk about hitler and you like some people are like really gab. Like everyone has a story so while done what well a so after iowa. Go just after so after i got back. I didn't know what i wanted. I still do not the answer and this is this is the last part so A colleague told me about coaching. I didn't know anything about coaching before. And honestly i had my doubts about some like. How could somebody else helped me figure out what i wanna do in my life like i'm smart enough to figure it out but also desperate unlike whatever i'm willing to try it and so my coaches the person who helps me to appeal back the layers of onions although the layers of onions are the show right like people telling you who. You shouldn't be what you should do end to get to my core of my being on what it was that mattered and what i really wanted and so at that point. That was what. I made two decisions as.

I just wanna understand if we're going through that. What's missing and i've also. I've noticed that. I can connect this with the midlife crisis Topic that a lot of people aren't embracing the abilities as their authentic selves. Yes and that's why they kind of feel like something's missing. Like i had the job i have this. But why do i feel like i'm missing something and it's because you were afraid allowing your guards to be down you choose to wear a social massed you wear your your occupational mask when you're at work and then you barely show your loved one your real self. I could not agree more with you job. I had masks on. And i was protecting myself. And i had like different personas and i mean part of it is also. I just didn't know who. I was myself like i am.

I'm the strong independent women. I don't need your help. That's what i was saying to my husband at the time. I don't need your help. I love you. But i don't need your help because i'm a strong woman end so I learned a lot about just my way of being armor. How like the armor really wasn't actually strong. It was just a fake way of trying to protect myself. And so i got a lot of insight but i didn't. I went home without clarity of. Do i have babies now or do i go live my dream and travel.

"You're salvatore's live exactly and then there's the other side. Where the energetic early. The deeper with them the sage an end they are two different sides of your brain. As children we could leverage both the salvator is like the survival side Always looking for throng. If i were to put your brain under an rice skin as children we could use both. We knew how to use both both were active and under numerous scan. You could see. Both sides are activated as adults. Once we become adult guess which side quiets down in which gets louder the energetic energetic. What happens that one. He's going to be most active. Dr baiters and be kinda quiet. No adults darth vader gets louder. Only by the as you become an adult your inner darth vader though salvatore's the survival mechanism just gets louder louder and we can see that by putting brains under amar scan which has been done. And you'll see that survival brain gets stronger and on the other side is so quiet rage and that's what most of us do on an everyday basis. We're looking for what is wrong. We have between twelve to sixty thousand thoughts a day. Just one percentage is negative. You're gonna have to tell me this one. Eighty percent eighty percent of our thoughts are negative. Now let me ask you this. What is the percentage. Do we act on those eighty of what is the percentage that we act on those negative thoughts. So the thing is your your your thoughts in your beliefs feeding to your actions. So fifty percent are negative. It doesn't even matter whether you act or not. You're not gonna act on anything positive because that's dominating your mind exam and and the reason why people struggled to transform change is because.

"Knowledge and insight which is why reading books only got me twenty percent of the way there. It doesn't actually change you. You have that knowledge now but are you going to actually do something i. It's like when people say i wanna be healthier. Everyone knows what to do. Like you know you sleep Seven seven eight hours. You eat healthy workout yet. People don't act on it. It's true like the new year's resolution is go to the gym for a month and then they don't keep up with it's not a it's about understanding the definition of commitment and being disciplined. That's where your transformation happens yet. You can have a solid foundation and let nobody disrupted. You can make a transformation through anything. I completely agree and an a big a big element of like coaching. That i do. And an transformation is understanding your own obstacles because we all have different obstacles young so it's understanding your mind fat and what's in your way to be able to overcome those and dedicated enough to do that. I want to pause you here in your line of work. Was there a common theme. You came across with the different. You've worked with a lot of different. People of mass culture of people. Was there a common theme of obstacles that people encountered it was always fear based afraid of something right like everyone has different fears so some people. It's fear of clear or some some sort of a relationship with money. And there's this constant like but i need more money and i need more money to do all this stuff so i can't like quit my job to do this other thing so it could be money. It could be fear of failure. Because if i give up my current secure blanket and do this other thing that's unknown than what if i fail right. There's also for some people. It's just relationships with their parents and being accepted by their parents and fear. Of if i do this thing my parents disapprove so it's always some sort of a fear but it just depends on the person working with these These people is there like this. Need for money or this fear of failure. Is this rooted to something from within their childhood that they latched onto. Oh yeah it's it's it's it's a survival mechanism and this is like ymca. Fashion about mental fitness is because your mind was created for survival. It was not created for happiness. Right like your mind is it. Goes back to women caveman days. It is constantly looking for what is wrong. It is looking and it looks for patterns so that it could survive right like the trees russell ling and last time the trees rustled there was tiger. There i see the trees rustling. I better run rate like and that's just our our brains are wired. It is not wired for happiness at the same time you can learn to be aware of it and train your mind to see things differently and it's not like you can shut off that survival bring. It's a good thing because if a tiger is coming chasing after you you shouldn't be like oh totally little tiger. You should run but for majority of things in our life today. We don't have those tigers that we have to run away from. We should be aware of that. And then we can make better decisions and the thing with mental fitness is that there's actually there's two sides of your brain one. That's i like to call it the darth vader or where.

"On leaving the company and going to travel and volunteer. 'cause it's been a dream of mine since i don't even know when so when i started at the goal i was in my early thirties and i didn't realize how much changes in your life in your thirties. And how that's a pivotal point to make a lot of decisions. And so during those five years i got husband and for many people who are married or have been you know in a relationship. You know how much getting married to somebody changes. How make decisions. So that happened I had everyone around me asking me. Why would you leave google. Everyone's trying to get in. Are you crazy so downsizing and are going through a crisis or something. Yes yes especially my parents. They're like so. Why would you do that. You know like they're my immigrant parents and they came from nothing and they're like you're going to quit your job to go. Do volunteer work not get any money. But and why couldn't you just donate money. That was their mindset. And so that would you know. I heard a lot of those things. I heard a lot of you're getting old. You're exerting unique to decide or you can have babies or not if you want. Babies usually just do that right now and stop playing because everyone called volunteering traveling playing. Or they're like that's just luxury you're gonna regret it -cause by tiny get back. You'll be in your forty s. You're not gonna be able to have kids. That was another pressure point and then also. My parents were aging and the baby of three girls. My sisters both have kids so it was up to me to take care of my parents and so there was all this stuff happening. And i felt just so much pressure. I was also the breadwinner in my relationship with my husband. I felt like i needed to be the stability mike big money in income. And so my husband.

Is your transformation station with your host. Greg bossa amy hip. Welcome to your transformation station. I want you to be able to share with us your background and just paint a picture for audience who you are and what you do. Yeah of course Thank you for having me really excited to be here. So i am a life. Transformation and mental fitness coach. I am super passionate about mental fitness. Because it is what has helped me through my transformation. So i don't even know where to begin. I guess you worked at google. Does that yes. Okay and people will probably cringe when i say this but you left. Google after five years went off to volunteer. Yes okay. Can you you elaborate about sure. So in january twenty twenty. I sold on my belongings. I quit my job at google. And i took a one way flight to ghana to volunteer to breast cancer nonprofit and my husband and i it was our dream to travel the world so we had plans volunteer until may and then go travel the world and then there's that little thing in the world that game called it. Which kind disrupted our plans. So we ended up stuck in ghana until september of twenty. Twenty eight wi- volunteer. So i i've always been drawn to giving back and particularly to helping women and in ghana in particular breast. I focused on breast cancer for variety of reasons. One is my family has a history of breast. So that's one two is in ghana. Though women who are diagnosed with breast cancer their husbands will just leave them. Their families disown them because they have this notion that want to get breast cancer. You're going to die and there are also very religious so rather than seeking medical help. Women are told you need to go to prayer camps and the pastor will just crave for them and it's really sad because they will be in prayer cams for like a year. Their breasts will become twenty kilos before they go seek medical help and by then it's either too late or you know it's going to be a very challenging recovery for them and during that time there their families have just abandoned them right and so it's quite lonely. It's really sad and it's just due to misinformation. Until i was just really passionate about that and you know our workout. There was one supporting the women in giving them the love and care and community that dating get from their families and then the second thing was educating the small communities because they're still run by chiefs like really small communities run by chiefs going into the communities educating the chiefs on faces defiance.

"And that was a big aha moment for her role that kind of throws my fear out the window can now i should. I should frame the question that way. Can you give me an example of someone with The fear of failure. Can you repeat that sure Could you give me give us because you just gave us an example of someone you encounter with the need of money. Could you give me an example with someone that you've experienced and helped with the fear of failure yes and so this is specifically this person so the fear failure are our fears. The failure often come from different places. One of my clients His fear of failure team from growing up in a household where anytime he failed. He would just be lashed out at right. Like you're not good enough and so he associated achievement and success and beyond not failing as love from.

"Was i decided. I wanna be a coach because that just sought the last few years of my life right like not knowing what i wanted and feeling like. I couldn't talk to anyone about it and feeling stuck and so i went To coaching certification program for eight months studied. And after i finish studying. I always believe things happen for reason. The program that i went to They just happen to have a program that graduated december twenty nineteen which was my five year point google so right after i graduated. I left the company in january. Twenty twenty one hundred. I went off to ghana. So is there any difference with Being a certified life coach versus being like any other kind of coach. 'cause when i when i coach i i feel like embodies everything because everything is connected. I mean if. I need to improve my finances. Well i'm sure my finances would definitely improve if i would go to bed on time because start making better choices. If you can explain to me like the key aspects that your certification covers to help get people moving in the right direction. Yeah so breath. Coaching so coaching as is about helping you to go in the direction that you want it is about helping you to To change in the way that you wish and sometimes you don't even know what that changes or what direction is because it's about helping you to peel back those layers right. It helps you to see the choices that you have because oftentimes when you feel stuck you feel like you don't have a choice and so it's helping you to see those choices in helping you to feel empowered to make the change and take one of those choices even if it's uncomfortable and helping you to see what are those barriers in your way. I always like in myself to being the mirror for people so the mirror that you may not wanna look at or that you just don't see the peeling back. The layers of the onion you came across. We talked about earlier than need of money and then fear of failure. So how'd you. Those people get past those two different Issues if we were disabled like just put it down on paper in order to get asked this you have to do y. Z if you can share that with us so the the the other thing with coaching is it is not advice. giving at it's the exact you know like what we talked about earlier. An health and help health and well-being is one of those. Because i could tell you all the things you need to do. But it's not gonna like we all know what to do to be healthy but why does it not work because it might not be specific enough to like. It's not identifying what's in your way. Okay now i see yes and blaming the mindset but also knowing what what motivates. You hide the reason why.

"He was bullied. He was rejected. He was like there was all this stuff that happened in a not saying that justifies it. But it gives you a sense of Empathy for what he went through as a child he got beaten up all the time. And then right like it just kinda went to his head and he. Something flipped in his mind and this happens to a lot of people on so just even understanding people's stories. It doesn't justify their actions or behaviors at the same time. It helps you to build your own empathy skills for understanding. Everybody has a story that can kind of explain there. Being probably over the duties will nobody is. Nobody comes out from their mother's room. Saying i want to be evil. I wanna hate on people. I wanna be this angry person. This is the story of their life that has caused them to become a certain way and actually empathy and kindness is one of the greatest antidotes to helping people transform and shift into becoming a better person. I'm probably going to get a little negative backlash on this. But i don't care. Hitler definitely an asshole but at total genius to be able to get thousands hundreds of thousands of people to do what he wanted them to do. I mean yeah that kind of influence that kind of like that ability just to persuade. Just these were merchant people to act to me. I think that's fascinating.

I heard a lot of you're getting old. You're exerting unique to decide or you can have babies or not if you want. Babies usually just do that right now and stop playing because everyone called volunteering traveling playing. Or they're like that's just luxury you're gonna regret it -cause by tiny get back.

I mean you're not you're close to asia because you you're really part of just of having that market right there but but still Historically get get your products that are perishable anywhere else in the past. They all had to be frozen pretty much to be able to get it. Although there was some semi fresh and processed in cry at containers and so forth that were put on planes to to deliver but but now was is Chilled is what's referred to now is. Is that the form that most of the meat leaves australia and goes for your markets in in some sort of a chilled form. Yes well that's where we as a country spa as ran up. The is electrician. Percents rate is since of children because up until now we haven't had the systems to monitor and take that the quality of that perishable or by but now with this system we actually can and the here is chilled beef.

We can achieve having tried to just by adding that the monitor Laced to a premium product in a That very welcome to pay shield is kind of directly from saturday. Well let's explain children. Now as i've had it explained to me before it just like not quite frozen. I mean it's really really cold but it's just this size of frozen zandt ryan shaw. I think it's things one or two degrees or something and they win win. It's now frozen could be good for a couple of years and the technology of freezing in new zealand. Australia has really led the world. Because of you've had out of necessity. I think but but they really done a great job and being able to have the good frozen and technology but now this chill technology How long can the product last when it's when it's chilled package properly depending on the packaging nothing It can can last after nice Depending on the technology this us there's a lot of Fighting inside could see. If i sell a couple of in it's gonna be at the instigation old shelf after that does here you know when we have to be on the west coast and goes all the way the east coast takes four or five days to get there and then you only really got good.

Team Liquid wins ESL One Germany
"Esl one germany ended syndrome. Yip team liquid came out on top. They beat team secret. Well first of all mud columns beat team secret two in the upper bracket and then team secret got knocked down to the lower bracket alliance and then lost to team liquid who just ran out the lower bracket completely after going out in the first round and they ended up building navy. Three one in the finals. What did you think of That performance it was actually. It was a really interesting tournament to cover because like the storyline for the last half year has been secret. Beats everybody who's getting second place and then secret actually lost something so that already in itself made a very unique tournament But then the fact that not only did secret lose technically. The top three were not even projected to be in top three any of the three teams. The finals was liquid versus navy novel. Who have not really had a relevant top-placing in any international tournament for years. It feels like or very few anyway. and mud golem which is a new stack with fatah as captain those two teams got top three which was kinda crazy like they knocked out the teams that were knocked out by these teams. Were like no. It wasn't small squad got knocked out. Og got knocked out. 'nigma got knocked out secret alliance all of the big teams were knocked out and the best placement for all of the big was secret getting fourth. So kind of crazy stuff. It was really cool to see other teams catching up and playing better. And i'm very happy for for liquid for finally winning a tournament with this roster. It's been a long time coming and especially happy for my boy. Quake of course Click so i mean. He played really really well this tournament. I thank you very much. Deserved like the whole team played super. Well so yeah those. I have a general question for you Based on the performances we saw so mud gums. You mentioned fateh being the captain d. You think and they beat secret two zero. How much do you think fatah's experienced on secret with puppy. Played a part in them winning. Do you think that that matters a lot or is in kinda just whatever. It's been a lot of patches right since they but he was with them for long enough. I feel like he could have picked things up at the very least right. Maybe it's still a long time ago. I think i think more than anything. They did their stuff well. And one with that more than they specifically tailored a strategy around beating secret. They kind of picked similar stuff to what they had picked so far in the tournament. And if anything you can criticize secret for not being prepared enough for that for that match up In terms of their bands in particular. By like you know it's a classic thing that secret will do a lot of strategies they will give away heroes that your team lakes because they think they have the solution and this time they're just didn't for once so as far as intel goes this whole you played with this captain two years ago. So you know how they think. I feel like that's almost almost diminishing the complexity of the game right like just as as your own ideas and your thoughts can develop. So we'll those with the other captains so. I think it's largely irrelevant to be honest
Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong
"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.
Is a 'Dog Year' Really 7 Years?
"Lauren. Von here with another classic episode featuring our previous host Christian Sagar. If you're listening to this episode on the day it comes out and are in the United United States than puppy bowl is upon us and what better time than to answer the burning question do dogs really age seven years for every one human year. Hey welcome to brain stuff. I'm Christian Sager and you may have heard that dogs age differently from people at the old notion of a dog ear right. The idea that one year for humans equals about seven years for a pooch but is this true or just some tall tale a shaggy dog. Doug story if you will well yes and no and it's mainly no first. Let's talk about aging age isn't just some hard and fast measurement of chronology analogy. It's also a measurement of how time affects our bodies animals all age but at different rates by way of example. Let's look at this seven year myth. By that logic logic a fifteen year old dog would be an equivalent years a one hundred and five year old person but why do so many dogs live to or past fifteen in years old and so few people live to a hundred and five it. It just doesn't add up and this is because we can't make a simple one to one comparison. There's there's no concrete equivalency that applies across the board first dogs don't all have the same life expectancy and they don't age at the same rate either either. Think about it this way. A Chihuahua can live to be over. Fifteen people years old yipping at us the entire time however a larger breed like a great Dane. They have a shorter life-span on the order of seven to eight years so the size of a dog affects its life expectancy as does its breed and expected did adult weight. Generally we can make a good guess at a dog's age range based on these factors back to the rate of aging so dogs undergo a maturation curation process. Just like people a puppies first year on the planet equals about more than a decade of people years. But this rule doesn't apply for every every year of a dog's life afterward after about two years on earth a puppy officially mature able to sexually reproduce. And if it were a person hey hey it could buy booze it could vote and maybe it could register for the draft but in biological terms dogs also fall victim to the ravages of age just like humans as has a pooch ages. She or he may begin to develop arthritis poor hearing or vision and other ailments that are common in elderly humans and they appear

What expansion or more pinhead I believe so couple of Fridays ago when the s&p was out five and a half percent from that twenty nine forty all time high attorney Karen instead of think there's another seven or eight percent on a downside as you mentioned the s&p is down some nine and a half percent today. Given today's close I think we have another three or four percent. I think what we'll show an end to the selling. And by the way, you might have seen a little bit of today in the vix actually close on changed on a day, which I think is encouraging. Maybe that's something to do with the fact that it's Friday, I have no idea. But that's a good sign. I still think you have to see a day where the market really flushes. Maybe have it three percent day with a vix closes above thirty reverses. That's the body. I hear you saying you think we're not done. But ultimately is is the reason that we keep going lower. Well, now, we're planning back for Jerry, you're in the entire month of October. It just be a continuation of I'll answer that quick. Tore as I'd like to fed Powell, the fed is the reason we are here. I think we are confronting a Federal Reserve that at least since those fed minutes since that fed pal statement, I think it was on October second you've got her dynamic here. Third where the markets look at them. I mean, look at them from that point granted, there's some other parts of the market that we talk about whether it's industrials whether it's banks that have been struggling for a long time. But the broader the market and certainly the indices themselves and look at semi semi's you're down eighteen and a half percent on the month. Small-cap we noted that the star at the time of the show. So to me, this is really concerned that the fed is getting more at a time when there's data that's coming in right now. That's actually telling you the economy's getting stronger if anything we're running into headwinds, and whether that's true. But here's the thing. I mean, the fete defect was part of this. But to me, it was more that they lit a match and a dynamite factory. We had concerns over Europe. We had concerns over terrorists. They did not come over in fact that there was a slowing economy on the Fed Cup. Along and says, hey, you know, what I'm going to I'm gonna might raise rates. Then all of a sudden, everything starts self semi's. We're selling off before that. So there's a multitude of things you pick. What the reason was concern me this week, though, is we all talked about our earnings going to save the market and all of a sudden earnings come out, and they're not says matter either. So what's what's what's left to save it? So if you look at the fed is definitely the number one concern on investors minds knocked the market down October third FOMC minutes on October seventeenth knocked the market down. Again. We heard chatter about hawkish fed knocked the market down yet again. It's all rates. That's it. So I think so now if you look at why the market would stop it's fear, plus panic equals bottom. We've had fear. No, panic pitch elation. I mean, we had to be. That the lows of the session really feels awful day. Like that today, you know,
