How to Fill a Few Seats At The Cinema? Rent Them to Gamers

"March in the early throes of the coronavirus pandemic. We brought you a story about how a devastated movie theater industry found a glimmer of hope by turning to that old american classic the drive in movie theater that hope was short. Lived though as many drive ins were forced to close because of stay at home orders in some cities and cold weather and others. But now there's another small light at the end of the tunnel for an industry. That's been gutted by the pandemic this time. The story starts in south korea with movie theaters around the country closed or operating at a limited capacity and film releases largely on hold due to covid south korea's largest cinema chain. Cg v had a bright idea. the company started renting out. It's largely empty theaters to folks who might enjoy the use of a big screen and surround sound. You know video gamers gamers. Pay up to a hundred and thirty five. Us dollars to rent out a theater. Video games consoles and controllers not included and renters. Told the bbc that gaming in theaters pretty cool the sound quality is top notch and the graphics are almost lifelike turns out a. Us theater chain was already on the gaming in the theater trend after a gutting year for the cinema industry most us movie theaters shut down in march early on in the covid. Nineteen pandemic and while some chains opted to carefully reopen some locations. Last summer those were shuttered again. In the fall when cases spite put simply putting up two hundred people in a room while they sit on coke munch on popcorn at the screen. Well you know. It's just not safe so malka theaters which operates thirty-six cinemas in the southern. Us rolled out. Its malko select gaming at several locations. Last november up to twenty gamers can book a theater for one hundred and fifty dollars in play until they drop or until three hours is up. Whichever comes first. i'm thinking it might be. The latter malko also allows customers to book private film screenings for up to twenty people and sells food and beverage packages alongside the reynolds malkhaz twenty twenty revenue down ninety percent from twenty nineteen thanks to the covid nineteen pandemic and while renting out theaters to gamers film. Buffs is one way to avoid closing down completely. It's not making the chain much money. Karen melton malkhaz vice president and director of marketing told the bbc quote. It's gaining traction and becoming popular but nothing is adding to our profitability at this point on quote and that's the harsh reality for many theater chains. Amc theaters has spent much of the pandemic on the edge of bankruptcy after revenue fell ninety one percent. The chain managed to raise over nine hundred million in new equity and debt capital rap reported. The injection allows the chain defend off bankruptcy for now. Amc started renting private theatres last fall at around ninety nine dollars a pop for screenings though not for gaming although for an extra hundred bucks you can score a microphone to welcome your guests. Meanwhile screen rental from rival cinemark costs around one hundred dollars another chain. Alamo draft house offers private screening starting at three hundred dollars which includes tickets and food when you think of the average pre virus movie screening with around two hundred customers paying an average of a little over nine dollars for a ticket. That's eighteen hundred dollars that the theater brings end before even popping a single popcorn kernel at the often pricey concession stand private screenings and video game parties just can't cut into all that red still on the horizon for cinemas is. Well what is that. Hope as a million americans received the covid nineteen vaccination each day some theater chains are cautiously reopening at diminished capacity. Of course most amc theater locations are open in accordance with state and local guidelines and malka reopened several theaters in late january and earlier. This month of course strict guidelines are in place for one you can say goodbye to endless soda and popcorn refills and in theater service but still after the year that the cinema industry has had anything is better than nothing. Even if at anything involves a little. Mario kart

And on this podcast we're gonna be diving into the science behind beauty and the products that we are always talking about an testing at a lower. Today's episode is all about hydration. And because we're taking this deep dive into the world of k. Beauty hydration as possibly the most important topic. That's right michelle and in our previous episode on layering. You heard dermatologist. Marie jin talking about the importance of hydration and how layering can help lock in moisture. So how do we help. Hydrate our skin in the first place to answer that question and more with dr christine lee. A senior research and development manager with age see our partners in producing this episode. Christine can you introduce yourself and tell us a bit about your background and pristine lee on the senior. Rnd manager overseeing unilever space. care business. In north america. I received my phd in two thousand in physical chemistry from the university of florida. And then i joined. Unilever and of worked on the hd brown for about two years so christine agency is based in seoul south korea. And i know you work really closely there with researchers. What can you tell us about. What's trending beauty right now. So in asia a lotta. The skincare formulations can karan's really focused on achieving bright hydrated glowing skin in korea specifically hydrating formulas are really key to rejuvenating the skin so it looks and feels smooth and soft but in addition in asia consumers just are so familiar and comfortable with multi step routines really elaborate application techniques. Like they talk a lot about double cleansing deep massaging. They'll even talk about like rubbing product in with your knuckles. They talk a lot about slapping and patting and tapping. so they're you know they're just really familiar and comfortable with application techniques that we don't talk about in the us as much. The other thing too is really interesting. About the asian consumer is the way the words they use to describe the look and feel of their skin that they're looking for so they'll talk about or glassy or porcelain skin and that much of this is really foreign to the american woman but it just really shows kind of the level of involvement Asian women have in their skincare routine. It's like my perfect skin. Everything you're saying. I'm like yes. Yes yes more of that please. You mentioned hydration which is of course the topic of our episode today as basic as it seems. Can you just define hydration for us as it relates to skin. I mean short really. Hydration pretty much means increasing the skins water content really at the end of the day. Dry skin is more than just a lack of water. When your skin is dry or dehydrated it can start to appear flaky doll. It really starts to feel uncomfortable tight irradiated. It can start to feel like you're getting more sensitive. This really is indicating a much more fundamental breakdown in the Healthy biological processes that are intended to keep skin soft and supple and smooth skins normal renewal processes slow down in absence of sufficient hydration which then leads to further dryness than it starts to pull your skin into this downward spiral alright. I don't love where this is going. What happens in the downward spiral. Our skin's natural explanation processing slowed down which leads to an accumulation of skin cells on the surface and these kind of accumulated or aggregates of skin cells. Start to form flakes which are another indicator of dryness and drier skin surfaces also lead to increase surface texture roughness which traps light which causes the skin to lose translucence and appeared dull and lifeless whereas hydrogen scan on the other hand is smooth radiant feel softer more elastic. More comfortable touchable. So it's not religious the dry or white hydrated it's really kind of biologically related. Wait supposed to versus comfortable. Soft smith hydrogen.

Giving sources the power to tell their own stories

"Breeding is the deputy director of the global reporting center. The center has recently produced documentary series for pbs. Newshour called turning points which uses the empowerment journalism model. Britney's here to talk to us about that series and explain exactly what is empowerment journalism. Welcome to the podcast brittany. Thanks so britney you said before we turn to the that you had. You've heard our podcast and so you kinda know how we start out things. Could you tell us a little bit about how you got involved in journalism and how you ended up at the global reporting center so i think you're probably the first person asked me how i've gotten into journalism since my first day of journalism school but sometimes when i think back on it i'm not even sure how i ended up here but what i think happened was i graduated from undergrad with an english degree in fine arts degree and i was sure that i was going to be a teacher though. I moved to south korea just to sort of try it out and see what it was like to work as a teacher. I was teaching english as a second language. But in a funny way. I sort of missed being a student. I love reading and writing and losing myself in research and so i started to think really hard about what kind of career would lead me to new discoveries into an opportunity to spend more of my life learning and i think that that's really what led need to journalism and so i moved back to canada and enrolled in a master's degree at the university of british columbia. And they have this incredible program that was formerly known as the international reporting program is now known as the global reporting program and that really drew my attention and it gives you a chance to spend a full year working on enterprise investigative work of international journalism. And my year. We were lucky enough to travel to china to report on the emerging environmental movement. And it was just this amazing opportunity to really dig in and learn and after i graduated from my masters a new that daily news was not going to be my thing. I wanted to be somewhere where that freedom to explore a story to stay with it. And i know that those jobs are also a few and far in between but at the time one of our professors at u c was just starting to build a global reporting center and an adviser at the school had recommended me when our director. Peter klein was looking for someone to help out part time so i started working with him in twenty fourteen. Just right after graduating. And i was working part. Time will working some other jobs and just trying to fill out that full time schedule. Then when we launched in two thousand sixteen we had a lot of momentum. And so yeah. I've been with the goal reporting center basically ever since i graduated from a masters. And it's been a really wonderful opportunity in place to work because peter in the team are always willing to listen to new ideas and new projects in there's this openness to experimentation and i even working now with the golden pudding program as their multimedia producer so in some ways. My story is a bit full circle. Because i have both that career that allows me to discover learn but also one where i'm getting to work with students and help them grow in home their skill. So yeah it's been really great. And i i feel like i'm really lucky to have found myself where i am. We have peter klein on the podcast. A couple of years ago. And i remember having a really great conversation with him and he reached out to us about a month ago and said. Hey you should talk to the people about the turning points program that's being produced with pbs newshour. You know this is something interesting something different and had a chance to check out some of the The videos that you guys have produced for that project and it's really really powerful so before we get into that just could you explain what is the mission of the global reporting center. What are the types of stories that it does. Yeah of course so. We thought a lot about this. And i think i mean are small mandate are sort of one liner is global journalism done differently and then when you expand that in what that means split into three distinct areas so the first being the focus on collaboration so we work with journalists from around the world we work with a variety of media partners with researchers and scholars which we're lucky based on our position at the university to sort of have this wealth of scholarship around us an even now at this turning point project working roy subjects we. We don't generally work with fixers. We use journalists partners. So collaboration is really at the heart of what we do. And i think that that sort of sets us apart a little bit because you know. Journalism has been shifting for a long time towards less competitiveness. More sort of working together in this idea that we tell better stories when we're not silent off in working together in that something that we really take to heart and then the other sort of areas that set us apart. Are that experimentation innovation sort of area where we try to do our journalism in different ways. Were open to new methods and new methods. Don't always work out. Sometimes they fail and for us. That's okay because we just want to be able to experiment and try new things and see what works in take those pieces that are successful in and bring them to a new stage in the last focuses on our education avenue so on global reporting program and bringing on students every year to work with us when we have big projects in production like turning points. We like to give students opportunities to work on projects in meaningful ways and allow them in on the production process so that they really get that experience when they're going out into the world they have these pieces that you know they can point to and say that they worked on okay so now is a fair to assume that the the turning points is a collaboration that you're doing with the pbs newshour partnership with pbs newshour. We originally didn't bring on a media partner at the beginning and there were a couple of reasons why we didn't do that. I because we weren't really sure. This method is going to work empowerment journal. The model was very new to us. And so we wanted to make sure that we had that freedom and adaptability to sort of shift change and potentially fail if it was going to fail and so we didn't bring on a partner from the very beginning. We've actually been working on this project since two thousand sixteen

Cramer calls on U.S. to build factories to address chip shortage, unemployment

"As the pandemic gradually draws to a close. We've still got to national emergencies that we had to talk about a man money. A horrendously high unemployment rate and the semiconductor shorts is causing major problems for us manufacturing and competitiveness. We need more chips and we need more jobs so why. Kill two birds with one stone. It's time for our government to invest in building the biggest and best complex of semiconductor foundries. That's the factories in the world. And we can do this now. This kind of initiative went out of style decades ago but we know it works because the government just did it with operation warp speed the co vaccine program that got us to trick vaccines in less than a year. Were on a roll. Let's keep it. I don't need to explain. Employments national emergency but what south with the massive government back semiconductor foundry pro. Okay we just heard from general motors. They have all these new indian vehicles but they simply can't make them because they're sending books shortage and modern cars require a lot of tech ford said the same thing could cost them one to two billion this year bleed. You're gonna start hearing about this shortage. Constantly dan we the us really havoc with all sorts of industries and making us less competitive and perhaps even hostage country hostage to a bigger chip customer. The pr see. We got to get ahead of this. Now some of this shortages natural thanks to cova. We've got millions of new homes. That require a lot. Har- we're eating these chips like doritos at halftime. But some of you thanks to globalization are sitting been able to outsource their manufacturing most couple of huge asian operators taiwan's semi which is now the biggest samsung. These are both incredible mazing. Well run companies but they also get so production capacity that they have they hit the entire world including demand from china that hits american companies extra hard because new of our businesses run on just in time ordering. They don't want to sit in a lot of extra components it just by the chips when they need them. That's a quick way to make money save money until it's a shortage. Now that's where we find ourselves. Our companies can't get enough chips because there's not enough. Production were wide and that lack of chips is hurting all sorts of manufacturing including the formation. Gm and ford now. There are two ways to approaches. We can throw up our hands and baked samsung taiwan semi to build more plants. That's been our strategy or anywhere for that matter or we can roll up our sleeves. Like operation warp speed. Remember today when everyone get tested raw. Got javert here can roll up our sleeves and get this job done ourselves. If we're supposed to be the most powerful country in we'd be able to manufacture semiconductors for heaven's sake it's our industry so let me tell you what needs to happen. You might not know it. But america's best tech industry the most intellectual property that is anywhere in tech is in the semiconductor capital equipment space. That's lam research. Kelly tinker applied materials. They had machines that we need to make chips meaning while building gigantic simtek foundries can put more people to work and just about any other research project much more than a much than highway than a bridge. Why stop at roads and bridges and we re establish yourself as a whole new kingpin in manufacturing industry that used to dominate. And hey biden's pick for commerce secretary gina raimondo. She was a venture. Capitals governor of rhode island. I got into politics. She'd be the perfect champion for this project. We can take advantage of low interest rates to issue fifty year semiconductor savings bonds to raise the money for this project partner up with the private sector then. These businesses can pay back. uncle sam. Production gets rolling or chips. Defense ships all sorts of internet of things. Chips should be able to make this stuff domestically in the best in the world. Honestly it's insane. We outsource our semiconductor manufacturing to taiwan south korea. When they're within spitting distance of our biggest wattle china. I love taiwan. I love south korea but we ever get into a shooting war with the chinese. For heaven's sake they'll be right in the middle of it. Hopefully it never comes to that but why would even taking that chance. How much would this cost. We know semi spending up to twenty billion to boost its output. And they're very good at what they do. Let's say let's let's borrow one hundred billion dollars in savings bonds to make the us more semiconductor independent over the next few years but we have to start immediately to alleviate the shortage people intensive national imperative blueprint ready customer for the suppliers. Ready to help so soon. To be secretary raimondo. You've been on the show. Let's get the loan just chip ongoing going and put an end to this chip. Shorter's saving tens of thousands of jobs giving me economy a huge boost. This is what we used to call industrial policy. It worked for vaccines. And i know from work for chips to

South Africa suspends rollout of Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine

"Whether it needs to change its guidance around the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. This comes after South Africa decided to delay a vaccination campaign that was supposed to start next week. South Africa made that decision after a small study called into question whether the AstraZeneca vaccine works against a variant that is now the dominant strain there. So is this a setback for AstraZeneca? Is it a detour? Is it nothing at all? NPR's Jason Beaubien is here with hopefully some inside on all down. Hey, Jason. Hey, Mary Louise, So I think I have to start by asking the big question. Are these new variants mutating so fast that there rendering the vaccine useless before we can even get it out and everybody's arms. You know, that's what everybody's really worried about. I can tell you definitively that it's way too early to say that right now that this AstraZeneca vaccine isn't useless against the variant that's spreading in Southern Africa. But we are seeing some worrying signs. This was a fairly small study. It was predominantly of young, healthy South Africans, and it found that a reasonable number of people who got vaccinated still ended up getting mild cases of disease like nobody got sick, really, really sick. Nobody died in the study was even designed to test for that. But this was combined with some lab studies in Southern Africa that showed some other worrying signs and there's concern that you know, South Africa. Was supposed to be starting This mass vaccination campaign next week on bones would be the first mass vaccination campaign in all of southern substation in Africa on bit was going to be with the AstraZeneca shot in Salima dill cream. He's AnAnd visor to the South African government. He told the W. H o today that South African decided to put that campaign on hold. We don't want to end up with a situation where we vaccinated million people of two million people with a vaccine that may not be effective in preventing hospitalization and severe disease. So instead, they're going to switch to doing the mass vaccination campaign with Johnson and Johnson's vaccine into a much smaller distribution of the AstraZeneca vaccine that closely monitor that, And if there are higher rates of hospitalizations or cases among the South Africans getting AstraZeneca, then we'll deal with that, at that point Okay, so some important really important qualifiers you've given us this was a very small right study and AstraZeneca, which is not one of the vaccines being given out right now, in the U. S. Correct, So the guidance stands if you can get the vaccine when it's your turn. Get the vaccine. Absolutely in United States. This vaccine has not been been authorized yet. United States although the U. S has purchased some for down the road, okay, but But there are global implications to this. How big a deal is this development outside of South Africa. You know, there's sort of two parts to that one is that this very isn't as much of a problem outside of Southern Africa. You know, at least not yet It might become a some point time. But the expectation is the AstraZeneca vaccine will continue to be effective in other parts of the world. The second part is that this vaccine is an incredibly important part of the global efforts to get people vaccinated. Particularly in low and middle income countries, And if there are cracks with this vaccine and turns out, it doesn't respond to variants very well. Then that could really be problematic. Although why, because couldn't other countries switched to another vaccine, just like it sounds, South Africa is going to try to switch to Johnson and Johnson. That the problem is that right now, there just isn't enough vaccine out there or even in the pipeline, and AstraZeneca is a huge portion of both the current supply and the expected supply that's supposed to be coming in the coming months. On dis is also going to be. People are hoping sort of this vaccine workhorse. It would work well in low and middle income countries. It's cheap. You don't need some special super cold fridge to store it. You know, and it's currently being made in Europe and in India and South Korea. They're manufacturing in Argentina and Brazil in the WH Ose program to distribute vaccine equitably among 190 countries at the moment. It's plan was to depend almost entirely on the AstraZeneca vaccine. That is NPR's Jason Beaubien reporting. Thank you, Jason, You're welcome.

The Magical Language Of Others By E.J. Koh

"And welcome to books and boba a podcast between pittsburgh asian and asian american authors. My name is yet. And i'm re-re you and welcome to our first book club. Discussion of twenty twenty one. We're discussing your january twenty twenty one book club pick the magical language of others by ej co but before we get to the book rear. How has your twenty twenty one going. I mean we talk about this a lot. How time is just like a flat circle and it just feels like january has flown by. It has even though i mean wasn't there a coup. Wasn't there a lot of things happened politically. Obviously but i don't know like everything kind of feels like a fever dream and with the vaccine situation. The it's it's just been constant change degeneracy that antibac- sir shutdown vaccination site now. I did not hear about that. But i did hear about was how we have a how how we have like a vaccine shortage for like more than half of the country and not there's like a new variant of the covid nineteen screen. Yeah it's gotten really bad and it's like a question of of like wilda vaccine be able to stop the symptoms of the new strains and i am trying to stay as calm as possible. I've been staying at home as much as i can. Considering that like now like covid has been happening on the outskirts of inner circle. So it's just like. I'm just i'm just like people. Please stay home because now now it's like right outside my door stop and you're kind of terrified at this point. Well we're here today to talk about our january twenty twenty one book club pick so let's get to it As always as always we're gonna talk all about the book the magical language others so if you haven't read it yet read it i if you don't wanna get spoiled But if you want to listen to us first and then read it. And that's fine to do you. And i would like to give out the trigger warnings of of eating eating disorder suicidal thoughts. I guess like child neglect This there's a lot of sensitive topics in this book. So i would proceed with caution if if you are sensitive to those topics art. So let's get started. A rewrite won't start off with the book jacket description. All right the magical language of others is a powerful and aching love story and letters from mother to daughter after living in america for over a decade g. Cho's parents return to south korea for work leaving fifteen year old and her brother behind in california overnight. G finds herself abandoned and adrift in a world. Made strange by her mother's her mother writes letters in korean over the years seeking forgiveness and love. Letters engy cannot fully understand until she finds them years later hidden in a box as nj. Translate the letters. She looks to history her grandmother. June's ears as a love sick wife and tej on the horrors her grandmother. Kumiko witnessed during the island massacre and to poetry as well as her own lived experience to answer questions inside all of us. So right off the bat. I figure i mean i really enjoyed reading this book I'm not like literally trained person but Ej's pros is really beautiful very descriptive. Very there's a lot of stuff going on and a lot of really like beautiful descriptions. But i know that because i am a son of immigrants and not a daughter especially not a daughter of a korean immigrant. I know that your relation to this story might be a little more deeper than than mine. But what did you. How did you feel about this book. Man i how do i even answer that question. Is i knew that i knew going in that memoir was going to be very difficult for me to read. I'm a very emotional reader for those of you. Who haven't been listening to our podcast for for a while. But when i memoirs are supposed to be personal and it's supposed to tell the story of the author but for me when i was reading. Ej hose book. It seemed like she was holding up a mirror. I guess instead of her instead of just like listening and consuming her story. It felt like i was seeing kind of like this distorted reflection of my own childhood and my own adulthood and like you said like her prose is really gorgeous. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that she is a poet and she knows how to use each word to its maximum effect. Just like an example of her poetic prose. I highlighted a quote from her. I watched the sun come up like an egg cracked open underwater. It's yoke rising with listlessness.

Everyone is an Equal Contributor with Joseph Young

"Actually geeking out because you're in the tech space in like tech space. I have my own tech Consulting agency. I spent two decades as a computer programmer in corporate programming for major corporations. So you and i have some some kindred spirit going on there. What what i like most about you is. You're aware of what's going on in the world today and for the listeners out there i mean when you when you sent me. You're right up you sick you know. I'm a privileged white male in tech. And i was like wow he. He's aware because i'm a black woman. And tech and i have fought my whole career to be recognized as someone who won qualified in who brings value because it is a white male space. So let's talk about that. Let's talk about first of all. Let me backtrack. Let's talk about who you are and how you come to be joseph the founder of cuvee an endless talk about how you get this awareness that you're at shore So a lot of my experience Came from actually my military career. I spent nine years in the air force in a five of them were overseas the last five and As i'm sure you know a year. I sort of outside of america experience that opens up your mind to to to to the different cultures that exist in the world and and the way that the world sort of turns without always having you know. America first and foremost in in in in their minds of and that the cultures are are running beautifully and beautiful histories. And and and and you know don't need that sort of influence that americans tend to try to run into other countries and deliver of it. Was that experience. That sort of opened my mind. I was an air traffic controller in in the air force and so in both south korea in italy i was working alongside of south korean and italian controllers at basis that were owned by the respective countries and what i kept seeing Was this this attempt that we that that that that a lot of americans fall into when they travel overseas to make their space around them becoming available and be a what they're used to and so they tend to kind of used their might and use their power to override of the the way that things typically are wherever it is that they go or at least attempt to do so in every time i saw that happen and of course it's natural it's human nature especially as as far removed as we are from a from the rest of the world geographically. I kept seeing how ineffective that was when it came to allowing the space for every single person to kind of find their space to grow into flourish. And do the job that they're there to do. it's sort of. It's sort of stepped on people's toes in a way that that the americans were very blind to because as soon as they found that comfort they sort of set their kind of sat in. And just just just stop sort of listening to the other side. And so after seeing that for a while once i got into more of a supervisory position i decided to start running experiments and to do things in a different way and the way that i decided to do. Things was probably one of the easiest managerial techniques that you could ever think of which is essentially do nothing just kind of step back and and being in a position of power of any sort just kind of using that power to decide to step back and let things be as they are and let things and given the space to be as they are and allow the natural sort of humanness of every individual person. Define the workspace that we're in and i mean it was magical of it was it was it was very controversial In in italy has spent four years there and by the end of it. i was I was. I was getting sort of slapped on the hand with a ruler by by my american counterparts at the same time that is receiving awards for my italian counterparts for being one of the first people that came in and stepped back in the allowed them to be themselves. You know and so that that that taught me that i was sort of on something and coming in with kind of the american mind a position of power and and and being in a supervisor position also showed me the responsibility that people in power have to make that decision to get out of the way and the power that comes with getting out of the way for everybody else and so that's guided me. Ever since after. I'd left the military decided to do a change of career into software and i expected less bureaucracy obviously than the military which is obviously set up to be very bureaucratic for for many reasons of but i expected more leeway and more space in not so much politics. You know in things. Like that. And i was very surprised that the civilian world was you know every bit as competitive in every bit as sort of top down as the military was and I spent a few years fighting in that corporate world and worked my way up the ladder and But as soon as i got power there. I started trying the same thing. She no i i i would say okay. You're going to say that. I'm the manager of these people. I'm going to manage them in a different way by not managing them at all. I letting them be themselves of and and finally got to the point where. I realized that in order for me to really be able start accomplishing the vision that i really had. For the way that i felt workplace should be the only railway for me to be able to do that was to break free of the corporate world which is entrenched in their their typical ideas. And just start something on my own where i could have the space to run the kinds of experiments. That wanted to ride. And so that's why. I started cubie.

He repeats sharing with us. The work in a digital transformation and the recent ai breakthrough in ethics and trustworthiness at ross writes thank. You thought the bengals for joining us in the podcast today to be here for many of our listeners. dr bandou rose. Rice name has a long lasting romance and history going back to the first car built more than one hundred years ago but the motos business was separated out some time ago in nine thousand nine hundred seventy three. I believe and rose rises. Now in the business of pioneering the power that matters so tell us more about the journey business. That rose is in today and your role as the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose rice. Well has been rooted in engineering since we established in eighteen. Eighty four and this expertise has evolved the business to become one of the world's leading industrial technology company that we today and as the president for the region covering southeast asia pacific and south korea. I'm responsible for the regional strategy our external relations and governance of all our operations across the three businesses that we have civil aerospace is one of them manufactures of ever engines for large commercial aircraft on our regional jets and business aviation and we have decades of engineering expertise to take us through life through life. Service and support solutions for customers in the defense were market-leading aero-engines for military transferring control labor's including combat helicopter applications. I'm needles and power systems. Where leading provider of high speed reciprocating engines providing complete propulsion systems distributed energy solutions. So you can say that we. We have a diverse but volume that includes civil defense and power system and it is because w that our activities have tremendous impact on the world today and tomorrow we have always pursued clean safe and competitive solutions and we believe our technology will be fundamental in helping society transition to the low carbon future. And we're not going to do this on our own. We're going to do this. In partnerships and global partnerships to collaborate and co create solutions and with the regional hub. That we have here in singapore. We've developed collaborations with government agencies untucked -demia like a star and anti eu and us to pursue advanced research and technology in daytime smart manufacturing electrical systems. You touch on engine. That paolo many other products across the road strikes businesses. And i believe including aircraft of course and i imagine that you have been collecting analyzing the performance data of your engines for that case and in fact i see from one of your rolls royce presentation that you have been collecting data for some seventy trillion data points across twenty-sixth dimensions on your engines. So i think our listeners will be interested to know how you been. Harnessing that power data to make sense of this of information and into insight and action. And i believe in many ways is supplying the data to a machine learning throughout the life cycle of the engine from the initial stage of designed to manufacturing to maintenance repair.

Now we're able to monitor six thousand to eight thousand flights every day which is equivalent to monitoring three thousand engines in the sky at any one time so we have multiple sensors on board that continuously relay inflammation with were able to analyze five million data promises from our engines every day and we used to provide insights to our engineers for future development and services that we provide for our customers. But it's not just about the asian and the behavioral for engines. Current work includes applying a with a dedicated team that we have inside rolls royce school the day to labs to improve the risk management in supply chains predict market demand improved the efficiency of our operations and more recently nepal systems.

I guess so good. There's one resoundingly good thing that we have not yet a chance. You know so. So fans of the show know that we are. We are huge fans of the movie parasite Peres parasite parasite and this having this three weeks ago. Right but we are still feeling the glow off of parasites Huge died at the Oscars. The sweep it was. Yeah it was parasites just Night to shine in every major category was nominated was the story. I mean it was like the it was like this year's like every every Oscar. Your this is the story that comes out of it but it was like it's about this movie from South Korea coming and just blowing everybody away. I mean that's It's it's just an undeniably good film. And so I think it got. It's one of those. He's going Oscars where you know it. It was up all these major awards and certainly would get the foreign language or whatever. It's called the national feature right. Everyone's like that's you know that's a foregone conclusion but a lot of people were like. It should win best picture. It should win best director probably like maybe to invest director. But if there's probably not GONNA win best feature. That has never actually happened before right. We're going from never having seen a Korean film nominated for anything. Yeah right in the past and then all of a sudden having this one film win best picture best director best screenplay best original screenplay right and then also best or national feature and every single time the build continued with bond coming out again and again to thank everybody and probably get increasingly drunk. Charming is held by the way this guy I mean. He knew how to do award season like that whole circuit right but then every time we got up on stage is like through another charmer. Zinger at the audience. In Your Life. How can you give this guy all the awards you know? He's like unaffected. He's got a quirky sense of humor. I wanted to also shout out his interpreter and his interpreter. Sharon Choi is now the toast issues. I mean yeah she over. The course of the award season became also like a sort of minor celebrity in her own right right and so gained fan following. So I'm a fan. I'm if anybody else knows her we'd love to have her as a guest on the show hundred yet honestly I'm a fan of like just pretty much. Everybody who would anything into that movie? Yeah parasites key grips. Yeah best graphs. You know it's like it was. It was an end to end. Just glory of a film in so many ways and I think the thing that that it's most staggering for me is the degree to which I did not believe this was going to occur degree to which I was already pre apologizing on behalf of America and this this local awards show the Oscars because it seems so likely that the you know decades and decades of racist exclusion of Asian and asian-american stuff was going to continue and It just blew my face my skull. You know I I also was like I don't know by the time. Oscar night rolled around. I think people were pretty stoked about it about parasite a fever kind of hit the town And I'm speaking of someone who live in Los Angeles. So there's I mean like we marinate it. There's a there's they say that They're all these different. They're only there. Are there many seasons? But there's a war season so I was I was I don't know but I'd love allowed myself to feel like maybe this could happen. And then yeah and this probably setting myself up for complete crushing disappointment. And then I'd have something to complain about at the new Oscar but holy shit you know like at the end of the night and you're like Oh my God. There's a whole giant group of Korean setting on Stage Roy out. This is amazing. I believe Koreatown was was lit I mean my understanding is that bong the rest of the cast and crew did not make it to the Designated Party. That was until like one forty six. Am or something like that and then hit creatine afterwards. Yeah reporting is reported that they they shut down a restaurant and basically was there till six in the morning and well you know they deserved it and every every since I obviously was not an entirely undiluted moment of joy because you know it's something we talked about before but The awards went to Bong and went to the movie. They did not go to the actors deserved across the board. And the ensemble is so incredibly good and such a huge part of making this movie work yet. None of them were were recognized with a nomination individually right right right. I mean that's and that's been A. That's a trend. I mean any. Somebody pointed out that any any film that has been had nominated for multiple awards at the Oscars almost all of them have have been devoid of nominations for the actors right from Crouching Tiger to everything back to the last emperor saga millionaire life of Pi. It's like this is not. This is not a coincidence. Know what I mean so there is. There's something here where Asian performers Asian bodies are sort of like are invisible. Actually when it comes to sort of be recognized in this way I totally agree. I feel like there are a lot of reasons for it down to the sort of feeling in some ways that Asian films genre right even disregard. What kind of films are they actually are the the idea that Asian film is Genre? Not just Korean film or Japanese film attorneys when whatever but the Asian the relegates them to a category and a specific category that essentially flattens out the contributions required to make the film film right. Now I say this in part because I feel like the biggest reason these actors were not being reckoned. They're two huge reasons. Right one is that they were unfamiliar to Hollywood. Yeah as actress themselves we know. Hollywood is kind of a clubby place. Yeah if you've been nominated before you're more likely to be nominated again if you know. There's just a whole sense of expectation in the game right which is just like a crime considering someone like so gung. Ho is like you know. He's a national treasure. It right yeah. He's got a huge cannon of Eric shows an incredible amount of rain and yet I think the way they they see him as he did a great job in the sort of supporting actor role as part of an ensemble right like his own. Individual performance gets flattened out again. It's GonNa it's GonNa be funny because a lot of people are going to start like sort of discount on their path of discovering Korean cinema. Right this dude is in every movie for twenty years. But it's too late at least for for this award season but the other reason frankly is. I don't think that people know how to pronounce. People's names I or or write them properly and they've as a result and also frankly they don't speak English fluently in some cases loonies other people and it means that it takes more effort. You can actually give them press i. It was easier. I think for for Neon to sort of hype the film overall as a phenomenon. Then it was to actually try to do a serious effort to to get you know acting awards and I'm not putting it on them. Yeah Sort wasn't it wasn't a neon Yeah it would have been so you know. I'm not putting on them. But the way that the press works is Kinda need to be fed and if it's not easy for them to eat if they have to actually shell the shrimp Kinda pull the meat out of the crab legs. Then they won't eat it regards. How great the buffets metaphorically but they did walk away with the SAG. I mean they on some the Tom Board. Yeah but that's I recognize as actors. I mean it's recognizing their good actors is not recognizing collectively. That good acting happen right right. But it wasn't recognizing them as individuals being this stripping their individual Surv- identities outright. Yes it was applauding the Asians. Yeah and again. It's great and you know. I'm glad that they actually got that recognition collectively but let's also acknowledge that it's not just them but there were many performances by Asian actors in predominantly non English speaking films that effectively went right under the radar for the Academy Award Right Some couple of things. I WANNA point out like we also liberated parasites win it was a huge deal historic et CETERA. A couple pieces that came out immediately after sort of pointed out the fact that something we I mean we all I think most was kind of realized but is that like you know. This is a big win. Big The academy and it looks good for the academy to do this. It's not necessarily a huge win for Asian American cinema or Asian American filmmakers or actors which I think some people are going to surprise will recently. It's abuse Chrysler like. Oh these are different things. Welcome to the conversation. Like guess what we've had for very long time It sort of passes over something like and You know a very obvious example. This was this all came out in the year that the fair welcome out Which was completely ignored right. Yeah and so that that's the example that you could show that we're dealing with completely different issues here. It doesn't necessarily mean a a big win. Something like for for Asian markets cinema although me as as Korean as someone who is Korean. I'm all on board for this moment. You know what I mean totally. Yeah and yet I mean I would argue that. There is envelope stretching that occurs right that Asian faces Asian bodies like you said I mean something. Even if it's not translating directly into elevating asian-americans age marking talent I think indirectly it is. I would also argue that. You know the globalization internationalization of the film industry in general. It's something which how do I put this? It's something which I think.

I think <hes> eh china japan at south korea says the convergence of the two together and this is always there the problem that caused us to be that the country has different priorities particularly <hes> japan seems that it is more developed and it is <hes> <hes> as a in the pasta prioritize on a different sort of <hes> trading <hes> arrangements agent but now i think i believe that the older countries the countries including japan realized that this the sweet countries i have to work together close our way and the two nothing therefore the trilateral retreat our german but also more importantly really i think the <hes> all the regional coverage about this out about east asia economic community as being on the agenda and which is supposed to take i mean <hes> come into being twenty twenty and of course the commitment to complete the negotiations by the end of the year so economic issues trade issues that always on the big. It's very heavy on the top doc nagy. What's your take on the possibility of china japan south korea free trade agreement for i think a lot of the free trade agreement is probably not the priority of either south korea which and at this particular stage <hes> we've seen them invest more in terms of their negotiation nations strategies and and that the capital the regional comprehensive economic partnership <hes> their suggestions in the trade circles that they may pass some form of the regional comprehensive economic partnership on the end of the year at least chapters of it to say that hey listen that we've we've signed regional no comprehensive economic partnership <hes> and that was a way to bring on indian some of the more difficult partners within the okay please yet one of the main reasons why the trilateral free trade agreement is probably quite board <hes> has less to do with japan and south korea and more to do with <hes> the bilateral trade war between the united states and china at this stage <hes> japan south korea. We'll likely be pressured by the united states to not move forward in terms of the trilateral agreement and pressboard alternatives whether it's the regional comprehensive ah economic partnership or other economic partnership talking.

"Right yeah i think that's right i mean this ultimately gets to this bigger question of what the north korean and south korean missile programmes are and what challenges they pose because you know the by the point of the bilateral agreement in the 1970s was to allow the south koreans to develop a reasonable conventional missile capability that was not part of a nuclear weapons program and i i think if we're being honest about it and we look at the south korean system now i don't think anybody believes the increasingly capable series of hun move ballistic and cruise missiles are for nuclear weapons they are going to be conventionally armed and so the original rationale for the guidelines has disappeared en so i i do understand why it's hard to look at the south koreans and say no you can't have this particular missile system you want but then there is this other piece which is you know we do kind of have to look at it and ask i you know like even if we're sympathetic to the um the desires of the south koreans to defend themselves we're in this together and we have to ask whether this particular plan to defend themselves is it is a good or stabilising one yeah let me ask you about this because it gets back this dismissed this stability question is the one thing that came out of at least the news reporting and about trump's visit to south korea was this idea of collaboration on nuclear powered submarines as well and could you see something along the lines of conventional cruise missiles and nuclear powered submarines in south korea and houses fit into the stabilization thing that you just talked about yes tj up there did not.
