"Just a cultural thing where we've been rates but with this revolution. A few weeks ago women stood up to the front lines and women have been standing up in this this revolution women have been on the front lines on. They've been showing men have been proving all these misogynistic men that they have the power they have like. They can do what these men are doing. and so they started going out on the protests that went out on the streets tied their sarongs to sticks and wave them. Slacks proudly up in the air They started tying the their loan. Jeez and their undergarments on the street. Polls because it's also a belief that Men are about to walk under underneath these skirts women's clothing items and stuff like that so these soldiers were actually hesitant to cross these lines because they were women's undergarments that were blocking away so they had to spend time taking them down which protesters time to run away from them. Hide from them So i'm just I just so happy with people's creativity. he's back home in the way with sweet protests. And how we do it so seamlessly peacefully an aaron about that issue of the a peaceful protests have long been a ethnic groups in different parts of the country that have resisted the the control of the central government and back into british colonial period the british actually pitted different ethnic groups within burma against each other. I'm wondering how use your sense. The the potential for these the armed groups of the the ethnic minorities to unite with the broader peaceful movement that has developed in the cities against the dictatorships correct Growing up We were all taught a we were all like the news media portrayed these ethnic on military groups as rebel groups right so until honestly up until the of the coup I also believe that to be true. I just thought that They had these rebel military groups Little did we know now that we're there speaking up about it on the now on there. Now we find out that this military like ethnic cleansing has been going on for way too long and the people of burma were unaware of it in the major cities but All they were trying to do is to protect their own people from the military And now all the So-called rebel groups but they are no longer rebel groups. They are fighting for us. They're fighting for the people of mir mar They have been joining together to form our military to serve under the crp. H which is the committee representing with. Look which is the democratic government. group that we the people of miramar elected in twenty twenty elections That happened over finally. Are you afraid for your family back in burma berry like i would. I would like to think that they'd be safe inside their own homes up until recently but just seeing videos and news of them just barging into people's houses with no respect for human life. It's just honestly like you'd never know what they will do. they're targeting any activists Any anyone honestly late who who would go into a house to murder seven year old child you know. Well i wanna thank you for being with us and for your bravery and speaking out burmese student. Who's come to the. Us for college is a senior. At the new york institute of technology we will link to your pieces in the manhattan globe among them misogyny silenced. Feminism amplified next up. Today is international trans day. Visibility will look at the wave of anti trans.

"Chaotic. Everyone's really worried for my family Our families but My family calm. They're saying safe at home staying indoors during our best during the tough times. And i'm wondering if you could talk. You mentioned your family your parents themselves. Have they talked to you about their participation ago in in the nineteen eighties in the democracy movement. Then what's different about this movement versus the The up the uprising of of young people. Back then right. So my i know. I know that my parents had they were a part of the ninety eight revolution As people so many people Marched the streets back then They've told me stories about their crackdowns by ben but the thing is on the also said that the protests back then they lasted for only about two months because there was a huge miliket military crackdown. But the difference. Is that back then. They didn't have telecommunications and the internet like we do nowadays were also connected of. There's a lot of young people who are also technologically more on smart That are like now that we have a better sense of like sharing information on know what to do like if we're planning to do a certain protests today are happening unlike back then when they had no internet connections or phone calls so they had to just hide it homes and like surrendered to the coup. But what's different about this This time is we're also connected and everyone's very angry where gonna stop protesting. We're not gonna Submit to this military regime. It's time that the and step down. And i wanted to ask you a little bit in terms of the history of burma because the military has dominated the life of of the country ever since it became independent but it was for one hundred and twenty years. A colony of the british empire and the burmese army was in essence sort of create. Wasn't it during the japanese occupation during world war. Two by the the japanese fascists. I'm wondering what's the responsibility of countries like the uk and the rest of the world as you are battling to reestablish democracy right so the military edge very deep rooted in our history of like you said it was formed during the japanese takeover in our country back then and basically they rose into power when we Quote unquote won independence from a from the british So what happened was after we received a dependence of our of father of independence Will johnson he was assassinated and the country kind of went into turmoil. There was no rulers so the military stood up and like they took over and they have not like given back the power to the people sense So it's very deep-rooted and i believe that Countries like the united The united kingdom and like japan all these countries like They do have a sense. They do have a sense of responsibility to appoint that. Are you know this is a very deep rooted issue and they should be supporting the people In this modern world that we live in today your piece in the manhattan globe. The new york technology newspaper begins. I remember as a young boy sitting in restaurants and neighborhood teashops hearing sh- amongst the voices of conversations and the clinking chaos of spoons and ceramic cups when police or soldiers presence was detected. People would stop talking and try to ignore these men in uniform but the intimidated by them. Talk about growing up there and what your parents would say to you about what could be talked about. And now as you desperately tried to reach your parents on the phone Yes so. I grew up under the military regime Basically born into a and the world was just thinking about it. it was a scarier time But then as a kid. I didn't understand anything right because we will be out in public on. Everyone's scared of soldiers. I was just. I just thought soldiers to someone to be scared of on not loved or appreciated like in other countries like the united states. Where marines and soldiers are like you know like congratulated and like everyone is like everyone even when you see military bug marines on the streets people say. Thank you for your service. But that's not the experience that i had in my country instead we were taught to fear them Democracy is definitely not a word back. Then when i was growing up to be talked about dawn sensor g like we couldn't talk about her. We couldn't bring up her name anywhere in public because you never know who's listening Back then undercover cops were huge thing so even in lake teashops in restaurants getting breakfast. it's a huge. It's a huge culture my country to go to teashops in the morning to catch up and talk about the daily news and stuff so they purposely would place these undercover cops in these teashops and restaurants so that they can listen to the citizens conversations Prosecute them at will if they may Yeah so it was very interesting growing up experience. If i look back to it now you also write about. The women led revolution which i don't think people hear so much about in burma. You talked about dogs song. You talked about on sun. Suci who was detained by the military on february first at the time of the military coup but the significance of. Who's in the streets right now. Erin yeah so a few weeks ago. We had the two main revolution to main as like a salon or a skirt by traditional sarong one by the women of mar and Our country has deep-rooted like misogyny Just culture wise We have this idea called pony. Which is a the topic that i talked about in the second article that i wrote for school poem which is like it's the idea that men have higher aura or like physical just like look right Ben women so this idea had been ingrained in all of us But than this has nothing to do with religion or anything. It's.

That doesn't get slow down by class to end. You're saying that's where we're this charango creation dumpster. Yeah I think about like a boat on a on a lake if you just dropped a rock into a lake then what happens you get. Ripples ripples move out from the Rock uh-huh but if you drop a series of rocks then you get a series of ripples now imagine you're dropping a series of rocks but you're moving faster than the ripples then you end up with this week behind the boat for example. That's why if you drive a boat quickly you get a wake behind the boat because you're moving faster than the waves that remade by your boot. And and they're building up their building up on top of each other and you're saying that that happens with light. Yeah and the same thing happens in the air if you move faster than the speed of sound and you get a sonic boom. It's like a wake in the air. All those sounds are adding up together to make you the this one big wave so all the noise of the airplane airplane from one second ago in two seconds ago and five seconds ago all arriving at the same time. Because it's moving faster than the sound is making like it's moving faster than the light can and get out of your way and so you sort of accumulate a whole bunch of air in front of you. That's kind of what the sonic boom is that the sonic boom is and you hear it when that wake washes ashes over you. If you're on the surface now the cool thing is if you move faster than light than you moving faster than the image that you make okay. So this is like an optic boom. Oh yeah like aluminum bloom. I don't know you should come up with a name for it but if that sounds like something you'd use in production election of a movie so I guess pay me through this. I'm you on or some other radio active particle in a moving through glass and a moving faster than light. So any light that you admit you are leaving it behind. And then if a second later you emit more light you're also leaving that behind so now the light is sort of spreading Out Behind you just the way a boat would when it's moving across the surface of a lake you moving faster than the light you're making as just the same way about makes awake or an airplane going faster than the speed of sound makes a sonic boom which is just a wake in the air. You're making a wake of light weight. I guess I'm not quite sure understanding understanding so let's say I wasn't going faster than light so I'm gone. I'm going through glass slowly. I hit a piece of glass and I- amid photon right. That's kind of what happens. And so that the Photon Just flies up in front of me or what you know if you're moving slower than light like most of his do most days than the any image you make any light you emit leaves you and you don't catch up to it right right and it's gone in front of me and God behind me. You emit light light in all directions right. You're not like a black hole on one side wins a nuance or similar. They can emit light any directions and when they move to a medium. They tend to radiate a little bit Okay when they emit light light sort of in every direction so imagine like circular wavefront leaving this mu on those photons shot out in every direction from you on but now the mmu on overtakes the ones that were going in the direction it was going and it makes another way front leading it. So this is like dropping another rock in the lake and that one adds adds up to the photons made previously and then it gets it catches up to those and passes those and makes another one and so add these ripples get larger and larger they adept this wavefront in that way front is the luminol bloom or more. Whatever you WANNA call it This week in light that it's making and that is the blue glow. Oh and because of the way they add up because the moon is going so fast it tends to happen more often at bluer frequencies and so it actually emits a turn off radiation at a whole spectrum of frequencies. You just mostly see the blue part because it happens more often in the blue range and so that's what trink off radiation is The the sonic boom for light. And that's what you're seeing when you look at a nuclear reactor you're seeing electrons that are kicked off from new from radioactive decay from nuclear reactions. Reaction's going faster than light Chan in that water or in that material that they're sitting Because they're getting kicked out really fast they're gonNA kick that really fast faster in life can go through whatever material they're sitting in I see a normal electrons like if I just want a current some water not recommended in your your bathtub but if I just cost short in like a body of water I wouldn't get this blue globe. You need electrons to be going really fast and and the same way if you took those same really fast electrons and you teleported them into space. You had that reaction happens base. You wouldn't get the blue glow. Because the blue glow only comes from beating the speed of those photons in that material and some vacuum. You can't be disputed. Those materials because in these nuclear reactions usually have these fuel rods embedded in some material to capture the energy etc to cool it than the electrons can go faster than the photons do through that cooling material which is usually some special kind of water because the industry in the nuclear reactor. It's it the electricity shooting off really really fast which is causing then the if that's what the water is four right. It's slow down the electric enough. I think so yeah. It gathers the energy from the neutrons electrons fly off and also I think it keeps the fuel rods from getting too hot and going critical from extensive research and watching in watching Scher Noble. From extensive. Research Watching Watchmen and Dr Manhattan and you can conclude that it is possible for a God to fall in love with a woman that's right and you know it really is true in real life that nuclear reactors glow blue. And I think that's why people associate that color with nuclear reactions. That's probably why. The artist for watchmen made Dr Manhattan Globe. Blue interesting and you. You've seen this with your own eyes. You do you like the tub of water glowing blue. Yeah you can go down the basement. One of the chemistry buildings here at UC Irvine have a working nuclear reactor and you can just look at any glows blue. Anyone from the street can just walk into nuclear reactor tell him Dana White's incentives details into the blue water and that sounds totally save. No you can't is down. You have to arrange a tour. And it's limited to thinks students in this. The SPF here at UCI which is awesome arranges a tour were of the nuclear reactor every year for the physics Grad students and undergrads. And so I- tagged along one time. All right so that's pretty cool that we can beat light in a foot race. I guess. Listen if you're ever inside with material and so that's pretty good bragging rights and also it's nice to just flaunt the loss of expect. Does that feel good. It does it does feel good to say you thought you can limit us. You can get what we want. Humanity can out lawyer U universe. We are better lawyers than you. It's like when your parents said no more than two cookies and then you eat ice cream instead and you said well you didn't say anything about ice cream adversarial. I'm sure your parents love. It was like the university hypothetical situation all right. So then what is it a besides Nice Blue Glow and sit of bragging rights. What what can we use this effect for.
