Kaisa Martiskainen: Product Owner collaboration, and the importance of building relationships in Scrum Read the full Show Notes and search through the world's largest audio library on Scrum directly on the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast website: http://bit.ly/SMTP_ShowNotes. In this episode of the podcast, Kaisa shares her experience as a rotating scrum master at the start of her journey. She was eager to be a good scrum master and saw every problem as an impediment she had to remove, which led her to act as a messenger between the Product Owner and the team. Also because the team was not comfortable with the Product Owner's communication style. Kaisa provides some tips for handling such situations, such as pausing and asking questions instead of immediately rescuing the team, and asking who is in the best position to solve the issue when the team asks for help. She emphasizes that in many cases, the scrum master is not the best person to solve the issues the team is facing. Kaisa also suggests building a relationship between the team and the Product Owner, such as by organizing a happy hour. She highlights the anti-pattern of communicating only asynchronously and recommends the use of synchronous communication methods to build better relationships within the team. Recovering from failure, or difficult moments is a critical skill for Scrum Masters. Not only because of us, but also because the teams, and stakeholders we work with will also face these moments!

Sitting in a room listening to a variety of presentations, most of them non-engaging with slides that looked like this. HUH? Then a physician stands up and begins to relay a series of statistics accompanied by stories. The suicide attempts among college girls have increased from 1% to 2%...a 100% increase in a 2-year span. Nearly 1 in 3 girls have contemplated suicide. We have a college-aged daughter and two college-aged sons…this woke me up. After the presentation, I waited until the presenter was finished shaking hands and walked over into a quiet corner where he was refreshing coffee and asked, “What happened?” His response, in paraphrase…” it is well documented that there is a two-year reversal in behavior among HS and college students in general…so instead of an 18-year-old dealing with 18-year-old things, you have an 18-year-old who is developmentally 16, trying to deal with 28-year-old things because of the unfiltered availability of information.” Thirty years ago, a small subsection of people in the lowcountry of South Carolina would have known of the intimate details of the Alex Murdaugh trial… now there are people in New York, California, and Indonesia whose lives have been impacted by a very very local story. That is 28-year-old Grown Adult information, being straight-veined into 16-year-old minds in New York City while also trying to deal with acne, prom dates, and asking, “Should I download Snapchat OR TikTok OR Tinder OR all three?” There is a narrative that we have heard around the country as we have spoken to groups in Tampa, CLT, ATL, Houston, Dallas, LA, and Vegas…. “Nobody wants to work anymore.” The business owners are looking at the labor pool, and looking at the modern “flexible work environment” and concluding… “Nobody wants to work anymore.” The key leaders are looking at the teams they are leading, and/or the people they are trying to hire and train and conclude… “Nobody wants to work anymore.” But let us reason together for a moment. Really ask, do people REALLY not want to work? REALLY? Do people REALLY want to wake up in a fog, sit around on the couch, indulge in meaningless things all day, eat dinner, watch Maury Povich and Dr. Phil, go to sleep, and do it all over again day after day after day? No. You know what people want? What YOU want?” MEANING You want to be-the-better you know you have the capacity to be! You want what you do to matter! You want what you do to move the needle! You don't want to stand around the cubicle wasteland and drone on and on about the TPS report. To do meaningful things, things that matter, there are 3 things that I want to reiterate, remind, and regurgitate… First, you need hard coachING and you need TO coach hard A reshaping is needed (chucks pottery example sermon 2/26) It offers mobility, portability… And yet, periodically needs to be reshaped and reformed. Pottery shifted an entire economic culture Allowed for portable societies The beauty of the pottery metaphor is that… Solid, hard coaching re-forms, both as you receive and give thoughtful coaching The alternative of this is to ignore coaching, the sound of which just sounds idiotic. Kyrie Irving/Kevin Durant (audio) Nothing good will be done that is done outside of wisdom and accountability Tech will change, languages will change, empires will come and go Wisdom and accountability have and will always be Instead of seeking principle wisdom, We PURSUE THE BEST books, conferences, podcasts, and new strategies to find non-caloric solutions that will run themselves so we don't have to work. THEY WILL NOT… We keep trying to buy the BEST project management software, CRM, billing system… The BEST software is the software that you will actually use!...it requires action The BEST town is the town you will actually live life in…it requires action The BEST car is the one you will actually drive…it requires action The BEST spouse is the one you will actually enjoy spending time with…it requires action ALL of these require YOUR choice, and YOUR action WHY did we see a regress of maturity and cognitive capability among a younger generation? Not realizing that solving problems IS THE JOB ROLE Because outside forces stepped in (including us in this room) and did not allow them to work the muscle of their own independence! What we touted as flexibility became inactivity and apathy…just waiting. We've done much the same in our business trying to remove people from the challenge of solving problems… We have a tool called the Ideal Weekly Schedule…it is among the SIMPLEST tools a BOP coach brings in their toolbelt. You want the adherence level of an Ideal Weekly Schedule is? 30 minutes of pre-work 2 minutes of review daily UNLIMITED discipline and implementation Parkinson's Law tells us that “work expands to the time allotted” Was challenged to do a duel The night before the duel, he wrote letters to friends… Then wrote his “Mathematical Testament” that changed the entire landscape of modern math…IN ONE NIGHT Annie Dillard - a weekly schedule is “willed, faked and so brought into being” Give yourself a week and you'll take a week…give yourself an hour and you'll take an hour EVARISTE GALOISE A POLITICAL ACTIVIST AND MATHEMATICIAN…and a man of turmoil Less than 20% if we're being very generous You know what an Ideal Weekly Schedule requires? A manufactured stricture of our time creates urgency Instead of the weekly schedule, we look at the sub-contractor, the vendor, the customer, our own team and point our finger at them blaming our haphazard week on outside forces. We assume all MEANINGFUL time means personal time Assuming you believe in creation, one of the very first things we as humans were created to do was to WORK There is MEANING IN WORK. THAT IS FULL TIME -> BEST EFFORT YOU OWN YOUR TIME, and YOU WANT THAT TIME TO BE MEANINGFUL within the helpful expectations your business has helped set for you Not to work ALWAYS Not to work SOMETIMES We were designed to work, and rest, and work, and rest…a rhythm When we surround ourselves with the accountability of coaching (internally and externally), we are pushed to work and rest When we lead a person who needs to BE coached, we surround them with the accountability to work and rest, work and rest REALITY: We are trying to rest, pass it off as work and excuse it as “flexibility” Our current narrative: “I need flexibility to interrupt the drudgery of work to take care of life” Let's reframe the narrative: “Technology has provided the flexibility to check in on life while I'm doing meaningful work, and to be fully present in life while I am resting from work” Coaching will hold you accountable so you can find meaning in both. By which YOU can now coach others to do the same. The Second reminder of meaningful work: happiness is elusive, joy is manufactured Full confession - I'm teaching this as a student…not the expert Hedonic treadmill: “these conveniences by becoming habitual had almost entirely ceased to be enjoyable, and at the same time degenerated into true needs, it became much more cruel to be deprived of them than to possess them was sweet, and men were unhappy to lose them without being happy to possess them.” - Jean-Jacques Rousseau TRUE STORY: We've achieved a lot of chaos-busting tools and coaching, and yet a failure that we have had at BOP since we started in 2015 is building an incentive compensation structure and coaching module that works for everyone A constantly rising tide that could go up…or down leaving the business in a tough spot if it doled out its reserves. We have never seen more than 10-15% of employees offer a sincere and non-expectant thank you for additional compensation received (bonuses, etc.) Why? The joy of possessing them was immediately rooted out by the numbness of expecting them Why have we pushed so hard against year-end, random bonuses? B/c the human psyche can't help but see it as a recurring expectation…joy is lost b/c the convenience was never found… FLIP THE NARRATIVE IN YOUR HEAD: “All joy…make it your in-front-of thought” James 1:2 - James was the son of an Israeli Construction worker who lived in a village town between Haifa on the Mediterranean and the modern Sea of Galilee When they were older, his brother was falsely accused of a crime, and murdered in public James was beheaded because of his teaching and his body buried in Spain What was the message he taught? “All joy…make it your in-front-of (first before any) thought” What is joy - a willful acceptance that a situation has brought you favor Testing leads to endurance Endurance leads to growth Growth leads to fullness Fullness is the opposite of emptiness which is what many of us feel now. Choosing Joy in hard things = Satisfaction and not emptiness WHY JOY? ACTION: A NEW QUESTION TO ADD FOR CHECK IN: “what hard thing happened this week that you can find joy in?” Third, your job is to swim in a pool of problems and solve them This was the wisdom of the great Vanilla Ice - “If you've got a problem, yo, I'll solve it…” Without a PROBLEM, there is no need for a solution, therefore no need for job roles…no need for services and products. Artif. Intel. can now perform both repetitive and non-repetitive tasks But they cannot solve problems with a human touch Your role exists b/c of PROBLEMS, so it is unreasonable for any of us to be convinced that your role will be without continuous challenge Fortitude: courage in pain and adversity…courage when problems persist A new training course at USC: How to Fail: A Resilience Building Workshop Universities across the country are seeing the need for proactive training in the area of a) identifying problems, b) learn from problems c) solve problems, d) endure thru problems We are in a space and time where we need to embrace the power both of the problem, and finding joy in solving the problem Billing glitch…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Sub-contractor no show…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Client won't follow through…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Marketing machine is not delivering leads…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Sales conversions hit or miss…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it It is time to boundary ourselves and get BACK to the work of solving problems where we can use Technology to allow for the flexibility to check in on life while I'm doing meaningful work, and to be fully present in life while I am resting from work Over the next two hours we have set the table for you to either wallow in a large, easy pool of pity…or to put your cape on, take a deep breath, and go to work to solve important problems that will change your life…and in turn, you will change my life. One of our 5 core values is WRITE IT DOWN…what is the ONE thing that jumps out at you, you want to work on?
Kings and Generals: History for our Future
Last time we spoke about the Gapsin Coup. Li Hongzhang snipped the bud of war before it could bloom after the Imo uprising and the Daewongun stole back power in Korea. The Daewongun was spanked and sent into exile yet again, but now Korea had become greatly factionalized. The progressives and conservatives were fighting bitterly to set Korea on a Japanese or Chinese path to modernization. This led radicals like Kim Ok-kyun to perform the Gapsin coup which was terribly planned and failed spectacularly. Japan and China were yet again tossed into a conflict in Korea, but China firmly won the day for she had more forces to bear. Japan licked her wounds and went home, learning a bitter lesson. That lesson was: next time bring more friends to the party. #48 This episode is the Assasination of Kim Ok-kyun & the Donghak Rebellion Welcome to the Fall and Rise of China Podcast, I am your dutiful host Craig Watson.

If you are still hungry for some more history related content, over on my channel, the Pacific War Channel where I cover the history of China and Japan from the 19th century until the end of the Pacific War. Now despite the Gapsin coup, Japan and China still tried to cooperate against the west. But Japan was learning much from the outside world, particularly by the actions of imperialistic nations. Britain had begun large scale operations in Shanghai, developing the international settlement there. King Leopold of belgium established the Congo Free state of 1862, and likewise France and Britain were also establishing colonies all over Africa. The Dutch held Java, but then they invaded Aceh in Sumatra in 1873 and other parts of Indonesia after that. The Russians were taking large swathes of land including Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, parts of the Sakhalin, even territory close to Korea in the region of Priamur. Once the ports of Wonsan and Inchon were opened up, Japanese manufactured goods began to pour in. By 1893 91 percent of imports into Korea would be from Japan while 8 percent would be from China. While China tried to keep Japan out, the Meiji restoration had created an industrial powerhouse that made goods, and China had not managed this herself. Of Korea, 49 percent went to China and 50 percent went to Japan. In the eyes of Koreans, even though she was not formally a colony of Japan, the way the Japanese were behaving looked imperialistic. Now in 1886 the Beiyang Fleet was responsible for protecting China's northern coastline and she would make a fateful call to Nagasaki. The purpose of this call was to show off her 4 new modern battleships she had purchased from Germany, the Dingyuan, Zhenyuan, Jiyuan and Weiyuan. These ships were far larger than anything Japan had at the time, a large reason because Japan was following the Jeune Ecole naval strategy. This strategy was developed by France basically to combat the British royal navy. It emphasized using small rapid assault craft, cruisers and destroyers to thwart the might of capital ships like battleships. For my fellow world of warship players, the idea was simple, instead of slamming money into large battleships to fight other large battleships, the French began to experiment more with the capability of torpedo technology. With faster, smaller ships, the French thought they could be used more like raiders, to attack the enemy and cripple them. The Jeune ecole doctrine also sought to use strongly armed fast ships, thus its kind of a glass cannon situation. Anyways the implicit message from China was to show Japan how foolish they would be to go to war with her. On August 13th, 500 Chinese sailors took a shore leave in Nagasaki and they went to the local red-light district. As you can imagine, one thing led to another and some altercations began with the locals. The locals claimed the Chinese sailors got drunk and starting causing havoc, regardless the Chinese sailors began fighting some Japanese cops apparently using swords they bought at some stores. One source I found says over 80 people died during this which is pretty nuts. The next day a conference was held by the governor of Nagasaki, Kusaka Yoshio and the Qing consulate Xuan Cai which led to an agreement the Beiyang navy would prohibit their men from going ashore for a day. Then on August 15th at 1pm, 300 Chinese sailors went ashore, some wielding clubs apparently and they attacked 3 police officers killing one. A rickshaw saw the conflict and tried to punch a CHinese sailor, and this all snowballed into a riot. More cops showed up, more fighting, and this led to the deaths of 2 more cops, 3 sailors and more than 50 wounded. It was a real shit show, and the Qing decided not to apologize for the ordeal. In fact the Qing made demands to the Japanese government that from then on Japanese cops would not prohibit Chinese from wielding swords and forced the Japanese to make a large sum of reparation payments. Now aside from the drunken debauchery, which in the grand scheme of things was not much of a deal, the real deal was the Japanese reaction to the Beiyang fleet. When the Japanese saw the Dingyuan, they basically went 100% in on the Jeune D'ecole doctrine to counter it. They IJN immediately decided to construct 3 large cruisers with firepower identical to the Dingyuan, basically this meant they were making battleship killers. While Japan was aggressively modernizing and pouring a ton of money into their navy by the late 1880s, in China the reconstruction of the summer palace was taking enormous sums of funding. The marble boat pavilion, as I mentioned, was taking funds intended for the Beiyang fleet thanks to empress dowager Cixi and thus no major investments would be made for the Qing navy in the last 1880's and early 1890s. To give more of an idea, 1/10th of the salaries of for civil officials and military officers in Japan was being deducted to add additional funding for the construction of naval ships and purchase of arms, Japan was not messing around. Now something that often goes more unnoticed is Japan's early efforts at gaining intelligence on China. Despite the Sino-Japanese relations falling apart because of the Korea situation, trade between China and Japan was growing in the 1880s. Japanese businessmen expected trade with China to only increase and in preparation for the expansion they began collecting information of Chinese market opportunities. But for those who know a bit about Meiji era Japan, the Zaibatsu driven system meant private business went hand in hand with the government of Japan and this led the Japanese government to ask the businessmen to look at other things in China. What sort of things, military installations, military dockyards, everything military. In 1879 Katsura Taro took a trip to China with 10 Japanese observers to survey Chinese military facilities. He would publish a book describing Chinese military bases, weapons and organization in 1881 and that book would be revised in 1882 and 1889. By the time of 1894, the Japanese military had access to detailed information about China's geography, her economy, her railways, roads, ports, installations, the whole shebang, thanks to Japanese journalists and businessmen. Of course amongst all of these were full blown Japanese spies, but for the most part China did not do enough due diligence to hide its military capabilities. Rather ironically, the Japanese businessmen who opposed military actions and just wanted to help develop China contributed a lot of information that would hurt China. On the other side of the coin, chinese reports about Japan were a complete 180. China's consul general in Nagasaki wrote reports on the ships coming and going within Nagasaki harbor. Alongside him, the Chinese ambassador to Tokyo, Li Shuchang who served from 1881-1884 and 1887-1890 sent some warnings about developments in Korea. Other than those two, Japan attracted virtually no interest from Beijing. Just before the war would break out in 1894, the Chinese ambassador to Tokyo Wang Fengcao, reported to Beijing that the Japanese were so obsessed with internal politics they were unlikely to be active externally. I think its interesting to point out, while Japan was indeed building up its IJA/IJN, she never stopped pointing that gun at Russia. China and Japan right up to the conflict we will be talking about had its tensions, its conflicts, its escalations, but they never gave up the chance at cooperation against the west. Take a legendary figure like Yamagata Aritomo, who led the development of the IJA and was the head of the Japanese privy council. In 1893 he publicly stated Japan should cooperate with China against their main enemies, Russia, France and Britain. Despite all the tensions in Korea, vast amounts of Japanese and Chinese scholars who studied the causes of the first sino-japanese war, came to agree it would not have occurred if not for two key events. The first one is a assassination and the second is a rebellion. In early 1894, Kim Ok-kyun was invited to visit Li Hongzhang in Shanghai. After living nearly a decade in fear of assassination, he accepted the invitation, perhaps believing this was his only chance to reclaim normality in his life. Well unbeknownst to him another Korean acquaintance of his named Hong Jong-u had actually gone to Japan in 1893 trying to hunt him down and he found out about the voyage. A source claims Hong Jong-u was working for King Gojong and went to Japan befriending him, while trying to lure him back over to Shanghai. Regardless Hong Jong-u got aboard and murdered Kim Ok-gyun by shooting him on March the 27th. Hong Jong-u was arrested by British authorities in Shanghai for his crime, but in accordance with their treaty obligations they surrendered the assassin over to Qing authorities for trial. The Qing instead freed him, whereupon he became quite the celebrity for his actions. Hong Jong-u would return to Korea and would be appointed to a high office position, giving credence to the theory he was working for King Gojong the entire time. When Kim Ok-kyun's body arrived to Korea it was shrouded in some cloth bearing the inscription “Ok-kyun, arch rebel and heretic”. On april 14th, King Gojong ordered the body decapitated, so the head could be displayed in Seoul while 8 other body parts would be sent to each of Korea's 8 provinces to be showcased likewise. His severed body parts were showcased in various cities in Korea to display what happens to those who commit treason. Kim Ok'kyun's father was hanged and his brother, wife and daughter were all imprisoned. Under Korean practice at this time it was common practice for the family of the guilty to be punished as well, that's some hardcore stuff there folks. The wife and daughter would become slaves to the governmental offices, a standard punishment for the female household members of rebels. It was during this time one of Kim Ok-kyun's traveling companions, a Chinese linguist for the legation in Tokyo claimed to reporters that Kim Ok-kyun had come to Shanghai by invitation from Lord Li Jingfang, the former minister at Tokyo and adopted son of Li Hongzhang. The Japanese public was outraged. Japanese newspapers interpreted all of this to mean Viceroy Li Hongzhang had planned the whole thing. It was also alleged Li Hongzhang had sent a congratulatory telegram to the Korean government for the assassination. Many others pointed towards King Gojong since the assassin claimed to be under direct orders from the king. Kim Ok-kyun had been a guest in Japan and the Qing authorities had seemingly done nothing to protect him and made no attempt to bring the assassin to justice. The Qing had likewise handed over the corpse, knowing full well what the Koreans would do to it, as was their custom for treason. From the Japanese point of view, the Qing had gone out of their way to insult the Japanese in every possible manner. From the Chinese point of view, Kim Ok-kyun had committed high treason and deserved his fate. Fukuzawa Yukichi led a funeral ceremony held in Tokyo at Aoyama Cemetery for Kim Ok-kyun. He had taught the man, and spoke in his honor reflecting Japan's respect for his efforts to modernize Korea. The Japanese press began to fill with public calls for a strong national response. The Chinese reaction during this time period reflected their deep-seated prejudices concerning the Japanese. Even with official communications, the Qing routinely referred to the Japanese as ‘Woren” which is a racist term meaning Japanese Dwarf basically. Wo is the word for dwarf, and the link to the Japanese was a racial term emerged during the times the Japanese were pirating the waters around China's coast, the “wokou”. By the way do not use this word today to refer to Japanese haha. During the upcoming war a Qing official expressed these types of racial attitudes, that this quote for example "It took them 48,000 years before they made contact with China, while in 3,600 years they still have not accepted our celestial calendar...illegitimately assuming the reign title of Meiji (Enlightened Rule), they in reality abandon themselves all the more to debauchery and indolence. Falsely calling their new administration a 'reformation' they only defile themselves so much the more." One Captain William M Lang, a British officer who helped train the Beiyang Squadron of the Qing fleet from 1881 to 1890 had noted this about the Chinese and Japanese. "treated Japan with the utmost contempt, and Japan, for her part, has the same feeling towards China." One German military advisor in China said “The Chinese looked upon Japan as a traitor towards Asia”. Thus before the war broke out, the Chinese for the most part considered the Japanese to be another inferior neighboring people, below the status of a tributary since Japan had severed that link to China. The more tense the situation got between the two nations saw the Chinese viewing the Japanese with more contempt. They would ridicule the Japanese for the communal bathing habits, the attire of their women and the way they imitated western culture. The Japanese as you might guess resented this a lot. In 1891 Alexander III issued a special imperial rescript announcing Russia's intention to build a trans-siberian railway. From the Japanese point of view, this amounted to a foreign policy manifesto equivalent to the monroe doctrine of the united states. Just as America had kicked out all other powers from the Americas, so to it seemed Russia would do the same with the Asian mainland. For the great Meiji leadership of Japan, it looked like Russia would seize control over Korea and thwart Japan's dreams of empire and the ever coveted status of a great power that came with it. Once the trans-siberian railway was announced the Japanese knew they had roughly a decade to resolve the Korea situation before the balance of power would be irrevocably changed and the door would be shut upon them. Yet as bad as the situation was for Japan it was even worse for China. The trans-siberian railway would allow the Russians to deploy troops along the Chinese border in areas that would prove difficult for the Chinese to do the same as they did not have a major railway. On top of this Japan was pursuing an increasingly aggressive foreign policy focused on the Korean peninsula. Qing strategists had long considered Korea a essential buffer for their defenses. With the Russians pushing from the west and the Japanese from the east, Li Hongzhang was hard pressed to take a more aggressive stance in Korea. Now as I said, two major reasons were attributed to the outbreak of the first sino-japanese war, the first being the assassination of Kim Ok-kyun, the second is known as the Tonghak rebellion. I can't go to far into the rabbit hole, but the Tonghak movement began around 1860 as a sort of religion, emphasizing salvation and providing rituals to achieve this. It was much akin to the Taiping Rebellion, a sect that was deeply upset with a corrupt government. It was formed by a poor member of the Yangban class whose father had been a local village scholar and it was largely created to give hope to the poor class. It had some roman catholicism and western learning associated with it, again very much like the Taiping. The peasantry class of Korea found this sect very appealing and the Tonghak influence was particularly strong in Cholla province, the breadbasket of Korea. Members of the sect were angry that corrupt Joseon officials in Seoul were imposing high taxes on them. The leaders of the sect were all poor peasants who, because of their inability to pay their taxes, had either lost their land or were about to lose their land. Their leader was Choe Jeu who described the founding of the Tonghak religion as such “By 1860, I heard rumours that the people of the West worship God, and caring not for wealth, conquer the world, building temples and spreading their faith. I was wondering whether I, too, could do such a thing. On an April day, my mind was unnerved and my body trembled... Suddenly a voice could be heard. I rose and asked who he was. "Do not fear nor be scared! The people of the world call me Hanulnim. How do you not know me?" Said Hanul. I asked the reason he had appeared to me. "...I made you in this world so that you could teach my holy word to the people. Do not doubt my word!" Hanulnim replied. "Do you seek to teach the people with Christianity?" I asked again. "No. I have a magical talisman... use this talisman and save the people from disease, and use this book to teach the people to venerate me!" The Joseon Dynasty quickly banned the religion and executed its leader in 1864 for “tricking and lying to the foolish people”. Regardless the tonghak spread across Gyeongsang province by the 1870's under new leadership. However in the 1870's the rice agriculture in Korea had become increasingly commercialized as Japanese merchants bought more and more of it to ship back to Japan. Korea was not producing enough to meet the needs of its own population as a result. Japanese merchants would begin to lend money to local Korean peasants and when the peasants could not repay the funds, the rice merchants confiscated their land. This obviously was seen as dishonest and exploitative, as it was and the Tonghak gradually became very anti-Japanese. The Tonghaks performed a series of lesser rebellions against excessive taxation. There were revolts in 1885, 1888, 1889, 1890, 1891, 1892 and 1893. By the 1890's the Donhak's began a petition to overturn the 1863 execution of Choe Jeu, to stop the ban on them, to expel all western missionaries and merchants and to kill corrupt officials, a tall order. So yeah King Gojong did not want to give in to such reasonable petitions and told them “go to your home, If you do, I may grant your plea”. A lot of the Tonghak wanted to march on Seoul, and they began threatening westerners and Japanese. Soon a group of over 80,000 Donghak believers led by a southern leader named Jeon Bongjun began marching with flags stating “expel westerners and Japanese”. Now this is a really confusing a large scale event, one of if not the biggest rebellion in Korean history. One thing to focus on though is that a particularly oppressive county magistrate named Jo Byeonggap in Northern Cholla, seemed to have provided the “straw that broke the camel's back”. The magistrate had forced young men to work on a water reservoir and then charged them and their families for use of the water. He overly taxed, fined peasants for dubious crimes including infidelity, lack of harmony, adultery and needless talents, no idea how that last one works out. He also sent spoiled rice sacks to Seoul while keeping unspoiled sacks from himself. Basically this guy was an embezzling scumbag, by today's standards we would refer to him as a member of the US congress. By march 22nd tens of thousands of Tonghak rebels destroyed the new reservoir, burnt down the governmental offices and some storage facilities in northern Cholla. They then occupied Taein by April 1st, and a few days later Buan. The local Joseon government sent commander Yi Yeonghyo with 700 soldiers and 600 merchants to quell the rebellion only to be lured into an ambush at the Hwangto pass. Many of the troops were killed, some deserted and the Tonghak rebellion spread further north. King Gojong panicked, because news spread the rebels were being joined not only by countryside peasants but by many of his soldiers! Worried that the Joseon military would not be able to quell the rebellion King Gojong called upon his Qing allies to send reinforcements. Now there are two narratives that come into play. The first involved the Qing responding quickly, on June the 7th following the Tianjin treaty's requirements that if one country sent troops to Korea the other had to be notified, they informed Japan they were sending 2000 troops to Inchon. The Japanese leaders, having bitterly remembered what occurred the last time they sent a smaller force into Korea did not make the same mistake this time. Within just hours of receiving the notification they dispatched 8000 troops to Korea and notified China of this. The other narrative has it that on june 2nd the Japanese cabinet decided to deploy troops to Korea should China do so. On june the 3rd, King Gojong under advice of Empress Min and Yuan Shikai requested the Qing aid. In doing so he gave Japan the rationale to deploy their own troops. On June 5th the first Imperial headquarters was established and the next day the ministeries of the IJA and IJN instructed the Japanese press to not print any information concerning warlike operations. China notified Japan on june th of their deployments, and within hours the Japanese sent their notifications for the same. There is evidence many Japanese leaders accused China of not sending the notification thus breaching the treaty of Tianjin, but it seems highly likely they did send the notification. Regardless what is a fact is that Japan had already been pre planning its deployment during the end of May, thus it all seemed a likely rationale to start a conflict. This conflict would change the balance of power in asia, and begin a feud between two nations that still burns strongly to this very day.

Manuele Piastra: Fighting Against Your Team, The Danger of Blindly Implementing Scrum Read the full Show Notes and search through the world's largest audio library on Scrum directly on the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast website: http://bit.ly/SMTP_ShowNotes. In this episode, Manuele discusses his experience working with a mobile team in a scrum environment. He points out that while scrum is a great methodology because it provides structure, teams may sometimes just go through the motions. As time goes by, teams may begin to drop aspects of scrum, leading to the loss of the entire process. Manuele identifies two ANTI-PATTERNS in which the leadership hires a scrum master without explaining the importance of Agile or Scrum to the team, and in which scrum or agile are superimposed on something else without that thing going away. Manuele failed to recognize the context of the team and was given specific goals to put the team on the path of scrum, leading to a fight between him and the team. He offers some tips for addressing this situation, including stopping the show and having an honest conversation with the team and stakeholders. Finally, he suggests doing personal reflection to determine if you are the right fit for the team. [IMAGE HERE] Recovering from failure, or difficult moments is a critical skill for Scrum Masters.

In the latest episode of the Empowerography Podcast, my guest is Jennifer Koch. Jennifer Koch is an International Style Coach and founder of Stylegasm. She helps people express their true essence through clothing and image. She fell in love with fashion as a little girl, her mom used to sew her special dresses for picture day - sparking her lifelong quest that everyday should feel like a picture day. It's been quite the style journey…. She dropped out of fashion school (because she hates to sew), went on backpack around travel around the world (via couchsurfing), become an entrepreneur at 25 years old in another industry - until she had her “awakening” - re-remembering her traumas of sexual abuse, and waking up to the fact that fashion IS her calling. She promptly did an “Emily In Paris” and moved to Paris, France to work in fashion, only to find herself instead having the “Devil Wears Prada” experience. After she got burnt out, she ate some humble pie and moved back home with her parents to regroup. She then started a new journey in Bali, Indonesia and launched a bespoke fashion brand. Last year she launched Stylegasm - culminating all of her unique perspectives around style with her intuitive abilities. She uses her Style Oracle deck as a guide, and she also brings in Energy Mastery tools into her work.

In 1949, women from across the world traveled to Beijing for the Asian Women's Conference to discuss how to combat the dual threats of colonial rule and a new post-war global imperialism. These activists developed a groundbreaking political strategy, which assigned different roles to women living in colonial nations and those still colonized, arguing that both had a part to place in creating a more just global peace. In Bury the Corpse of Colonialism: The Revolutionary Feminist Conference of 1949 (University of California Press, 2023), Elisabeth Armstrong looks more closely at the lives of the women who attended the conference. Their backgrounds in anticolonial struggles helped shape the work of the umbrella organization—the Women's International Democratic Federation—that supported the convening. The book profiles a range of women from Indonesia, Vietnam, the United States, France, India, Iraq, and China among others, who had been involved in armed revolution, antifascist resistance, and leftist party politics worldwide. In the preparations and travel that led to the conference they butted heads, but also built lasting friendships with each other through their activism. Their collective efforts helped create a framework for internationalist solidarity for women's emancipation in a world structured through militarism, capitalism, patriarchy, and the seeming impossibility of justice.

Analyse Asia with Bernard Leong
"I would say first of all Indonesia is probably one of the remaining opportunities in a huge market, that's more or less homogeneous with a population of 270 million. You have to look at the G D P per capita is around 4,000 and then the GDP (gross domestic product) growth itself: it's about 5%. So I think you are hard-pressed to find any other country that matches these three very promising criteria. I would say that secondly, on the technology side, a high level of digitization has taken place and internet penetration has grown very quickly, especially during covid. So we are about 70% internet penetration and the whole digital infrastructure is ready for companies to take advantage of them, by that I mean things like payments and logistics. Then I would say that there are other factors that make this market attractive more for the venture capital ecosystem. One is talent. I think you'll find the most number of entrepreneurs in Indonesia in the Southeast Asia region. Number two is you can find follow on capital. for early-stage investors, that's really important, right? Thirdly maybe most importantly, you can find a local exit market. So the IDX is open for iPOs and we've had three IPOs in the last two years. so I think those are the most attractive factors when you think about Indonesia as an emerging market." - Helen Wong Fresh out of the studio, Helen Wong, managing partner from AC Ventures joined us in a conversation about AC Ventures and the firm's investment thesis onto the largest economy in Southeast Asia: Indonesia. Helen began with her background story from how she started in Silicon Valley, then moved to China and witnessed the rise of the Chinese tech scene. Following on, she explained her mental model in how she evaluates and invests in founders from the Indonesian tech scene. Last but not least, she discuss what great would look like for AC Ventures in Southeast Asia.

Dangerous Assignment was an NBC radio drama starring Brian Donlevy broadcast in the US 1949–1953. It preceded the James Bond character and books and may well have inspired them. "The Commissioner" sent US special agent Steve Mitchell to exotic locales all over the world, where he would encounter adventure and international intrigue in pursuit of some secret. Each show would always open with a brief teaser scene from the episode to follow. After the intro, Steve Mitchell would be summoned to the office of 'The Commissioner', the regional head of an unnamed US State Department agency created to address international unrest as it affected U.S. interests. "The Commissioner" would give background information, explain the current situation and tell Steve his assignment. Steve's cover identity, in almost all his adventures, was that of a suave debonair foreign correspondent for an unnamed print publication — his assignments invariably involved deceit, trickery, and violence, all tied together into a successful resolution by the end of the episode.

Alison Zak is an author, yoga teacher, environmental educator and anthropologist, and in her self-written bio, she also adds, importantly, that she is an animal. Her new book Wild Asana launches June 27th and is a delightful mix of wildlife science, Hindu mythology, Eastern philosophy, and personal stories that help us draw connections between our bodies, our minds, and the animals that inspire our practices. As if writing and teaching doesn't keep her busy enough, Alison also founded the Human-Beaver Coexistence Fund, a nonprofit that educates the public about the benefits of coexisting with beavers and provides resources and address human-beaver conflict.Alison has a long history connecting with animals, and when her primate studies took her across the world to Indonesia, she learned firsthand how nuanced the relationship can be between humans and non-human animals, and she began to grasp the importance of deconditioning what we're taught through society—that humans are superior and that other animals are only worth saving if they provide value to us. Of course, if you take the time to learn about different animals, you realize that each species possesses remarkable traits and skills that are integral to the ecosystems they live in. And if you do want to look through the lens of value-to-humans, it can be argued that every animal provides value because we are all intricately connected within the cycles that create our planet, our food, water, air, and soil. This truth has been known since the beginning of time, and modern research continues to publish findings daily that remind us of our interconnectedness.Alison's creative outlets and offerings suggest powerful, yet incredibly simple ways that we can begin to connect with our fellow animals, not only to understand our true role in the greater interdependent ecosystem of the planet, but to also experience the often sought-after feelings of awe, wonder, and unity that we go looking for in spiritual practice, travel or relationship. In her new book, Wild Asana, she teaches people how to connect with and embody animals through the yoga poses that are named after them: scorpion, cobra, fish and downward-facing dog, to name a few. She uses the framework of the Three C's: Curiosity, Compassion, and Connection, suggesting that the last category of connection can be taken even deeper, practicing yoga with a capital Y, meaning union, and that if we can reach that state of union with another animal, there's no longer a question as to why this other being is important, because he or she is me. There's no separation.Come with us, into a wild and wonderful interview that will leave you feeling inspired to learn more about the animals you encounter in your everyday life or those you have a secret curiosity about. I guarantee that after listening, you'll want to go out into the world and experience it for the epic, magical place it is and remember that PLAY is one the most primal animal actions, shared by almost every species, certainly other animals like us in the mammal classification.Alison Zak WebsiteHuman-Beaver Coexistence FundSupport the showConnect with Feathered Pipe Ranch: FacebookInstagramSubscribe to our NewsletterCheck out 2023 Retreats

If it's not alright; it's not the end. 事情最终都会好的。如果不好，代表还不是终点。God doesn't give us what we want; he gives us what we need. 老天爷不会给我们要的；他给我们需要的。（English Interview from 9:23）What about love??? Lily2023年的爱情运势呢？Bella: That sounds like it makes sense. See what's going on currently with the planets. Oh, there'll be plenty of opportunities for love for you. Plenty. But they might not come right away, to be honest. You might have to wait a little bit. Let's see, you might have to wait a little bit. I think now you're really focused on, so when Capricorn season starts, you are gonna be shining. You're gonna be the best version of yourself. You're gonna be glowing because all the planets are moving into your first house of self. You're gonna have Venus there. So you're gonna look more beautiful. You're gonna be more radiant than ever. People are gonna be drawn to you. So this could be a good time for flirtation, for putting yourself out there for having fun. People will be very drawn to you and magnetized to you. So it could be a good thing.这听起来很有道理。查看行星当前正在发生的事情。哦，你会有很多爱的机会。很多。但老实说，他们可能不会马上来。 你可能需要稍等片刻。让我们看看，你可能需要稍等片刻。我想现在你真的很专注，所以当摩羯座季节开始时，你会发光。 你会成为最好的自己。 你会发光，因为所有的行星都在进入你的第一宫。 你会在那里有金星守护。 所以你会看起来更漂亮。你会比以往任何时候都更加容光焕发。人们会被你吸引。因此，这可能是调情的好时机，让自己尽情享受乐趣。 人们会被你深深吸引。 所以这可能是一件好事。But I would say that now you are gonna be focused on your business, very much so. You may have had… you may have felt like money wasn't flowing as easily as maybe you would want it to, or maybe as easily as it was in a pastime that's gonna change next year because you had something blocking your money house, which was kind of frustrating for you. So maybe you weren't getting cash flow as easily. But once this Saturn leaves your house of wealth, you're gonna start to see more abundance in your life, more success. You're gonna also wanna be thinking about putting down roots somewhere. Do you think that you're gonna keep traveling for a while? Or are you focusing on maybe staying in one place?但我要说的是，现在你将专注于你的事业。你可能有过这样的经历，你可能觉得钱不像你希望的那样容易流动，或者可能像过去一样容易流动，明年（2023年）会改变，因为你有一些东西阻碍了你的金钱宫，这让你有点沮丧。所以也许你没有那么容易地获得现金流。但是一旦土星离开你的财富宫，你就会开始看到你的生活更加丰富，更加成功。你也会想在某个地方扎根。 你认为你会继续旅行一段时间吗？ 还是你专注于待在一个地方？Lily: I'm going to travel. Yeah. Oh, I have listed all the countries that I want to travel next year already.我要去旅行。 是的。 哦，我已经把明年想去的国家都列出来了。Bella: Really? Oh, what are they? 真的吗？是哪些呢？Lily: Five, six countries in Asia. So I'm leaving Guatemala before Christmas. So I'm going back to Iceland for a couple days, hanging out with my friends, celebrating Christmas. And then I will go to Japan. And from Japan, three months in Japan, probably one or two months in Korea. I want to move down to Vietnam, probably Thailand a little bit. I heard it's a great place for digital nomads. And then mm-hmm , go to Indonesia, maybe visit the Philippines, maybe go to India.亚洲五或六国。 所以我要在圣诞节前离开危地马拉。 所以我要回冰岛几天，和我的朋友出去玩，庆祝圣诞节。 然后我会去日本。 而来自日本，在日本三个月，在韩国大概一两个月。 我想搬到越南，可能是泰国。 我听说这是数字游牧的好地方。 然后去印尼，也许拜访菲律宾，或者去印度。Bella: Well maybe I'll join you in one of these places. That sounds amazing. Oh wait, I just saw something. Okay. In May of next year. Can you wait that long? Yes. You have Jupiter moving into your fifth house of love and romance and Jupiter. Woohoo. Yes. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, of luck, abundance. You're gonna feel very flirty. You're gonna wanna have a lot of fun. This is the perfect time to go out to date. That's the best time for love when Jupiter's in the fifth house. So that's gonna happen around May. If you can wait six more months, I mean it could happen before, but then there's gonna be a very strong potential for it. This is gonna be a great time.好吧，也许我会在这些地方之一加入你，听起来很棒。 哦，等等，我刚刚看到了什么。 好的。 明年（2023年）五月。 你能等那么久吗？你有木星进入你的第五宫爱情和浪漫和木星。 哇哦。 是的。 木星是扩张、幸运、丰富的行星。 你会觉得春天来了。 你会想玩得很开心的。 这是约会的最佳时机。 当木星在第五宫时，这是爱情的最佳时机。 所以这将在五月左右发生。 如果你能再等六个月，我的意思是它可能会在之前发生，但之后会有非常强大的潜力。 这将是一段美好的时光。Lily: And I think so too. I think so too. I probably need a couple months to heal from the last one. I think May I will be very ready.我也这么认为。 我也这么认为。 我可能需要几个月的时间才能从上一次痊愈。 我想我会做好准备的。Bella: Oh yeah, no, it's really good that you're taking time in between relationships to heal, to kind of reflect on what you've learned. Because a lot of people just jump from one relationship to the next. And that's not the healthiest thing because you didn't really go over what you just learned and see how you've grown. And you just bring the problems from the old relationship to the new relationship without working on them in between. So I don't think that's the best way to handle it, but a lot of people do. So what can I say? 哦，是的，在情感关系之间花时间治愈自己，反思你所学到的东西，这真的很好。因为很多人只是从一种关系跳到另一种关系。 这不是最健康的事情，因为你并没有真正复习你刚刚学到的东西，也没有看到你是如何成长的。 而你只是把旧关系中的问题带到新关系中，而不在两者之间进行处理。所以我认为这不是处理它的最佳方式，但很多人都这样做。但除了无奈又能说什么呢？Lily: Exactly! I did that in my past. I'm not very proud of that. And now I just feel like, yeah, I need to change the approach, give myself enough time to process the feelings. And I think everybody has their own timing. It's not necessary to hurry. I hate when people saying that, oh, just get onto (under) the next one. Forget about the last one. And I know it wouldn't work for me. It's probably you would feel a little bit better at that time, but then afterwards you still feel like, ah, I still have a lot of shit to work on.确切地！ 我过去就是这样做的。 我对此并不感到自豪。 现在我只是觉得，是的，我需要改变方法，给自己足够的时间来处理这些感受。 我认为每个人都有自己的时机。 没必要着急。 我讨厌人们这么说，哦，忘记上一个的最好方式，就是继续下一个。我知道这对我不起作用。 可能那个时候你会觉得好一点，但是后来你还是觉得，啊，我还有很多个人的问题要处理。单词记忆：opportunities 机会 | opportunity 机会（单数）glowing 容光焕发的 ｜glow 发光radiant 发光magnetize 有磁性/力吸引 ｜magnetized 有吸引力的put down roots 定居list 列出、清单 ｜我的睡衣上的标语：Amazing in Bed 在床上很厉害 I can sleep for days (因为我可以睡好几天）、You're on my to-do list 你在我的待办事项上digital nomad 数字游民 ｜online entrepreneur 线上创业家 location-independant heal 疗愈 ｜heel 脚跟handle 处理approach 方法Bella 她的IG是：https://www.instagram.com/astrobellaluna/Email: Astrobellaluna@gmail.com加入5月22日开营的第三期迷你退休营：https://flywithlily.com/discover 或加主播微信：iflywithlily 验证消息：报名）我的IG/FB：flywithlily我的微信号：iflywithlily验证消息：祝福
Winning In Asia: A ZoZo Go Podcast
Drive the streets of San Diego and it will feel like the whole world is going electric. Here is a Tesla Model 3. There is a Hyundai Ioniq 5. Look at that Lucid Air. Or that cyber orange Mach E. Take your driving to the northern climes, like Detroit, Michiganor Green Bay, Wisconsin, and the picture looks totally different. There full-size pickup trucks and SUVs powered by gasoline engines rule the road. Electrics are simply hard to find, like some endangered species. What explains the dramatic difference? Why is California covered in EVs while people in the north are hanging onto their gasoline powered vehicles? For this week's Driving With Dunne episode conversation, we speak to Andy Minckler, a regular listener to the podcast. Andy lives in New Hampshire about an hour from Boston. He is tempted to go electric. But something is holding him back. What are his concerns? And what might make him change his mind? #DrivingWithDunne / #ZozoGohttps://twitter.com/Dunne_ZoZoGohttps://www.instagram.com/zo.zo.go/?hl=enhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-dunne-a696901a/
2% seems like a small amount, but it all depends on what it's a percentage of. Two percent of a dollar? That's 2 cents. But think about 2% of one trillion one hundred eighty six million dollars. That's a whole different story. And a whole different level of responsibility.Tanah Sullivan is the Group Head of Sustainability at GoTo, an ecosystem that contributes around 2% of Indonesia's gross domestic product and serves almost two-thirds of household consumption in Indonesia.

So, Tanah Sullivan has her hands full, and she takes the weight of her responsibility seriously.

VictoriaAmazonica Podcast with Lina Cuartas
We are, in fact, the ones we have been waiting for. I begin this episode with the words that ended the previous one. I celebrate two Victorias Amazonicas, great succeses for Rainforests that took place this week, one in Indonesia, the other in Brazil. Then I decry an environmental disaster in my own homestate, Texas. I conclude by inviting you to think like another living creature, introducing the Council of All Beings, and I share the Hummingbird's Fable, to spark committed hope.

Have you ever dreamed of having unparalleled access to the culture, people, and mouthwatering vegan cuisine of such faraway lands as India, Thailand, or Indonesia? Ever wanted to step off the beaten path and experience an exotic locale in an authentic way, generally reserved for locals? Today's guest can provide precisely what you're looking for and more. Zac Lovas is the co-founder of Vegan Travel Asia by VegVoyages. This vegan cultural adventure tour company brings you an immersive experience that will leave you enriched and forever changed. It's Zac's extensive background in the film industry that brought him to India initially, which brings us full circle because it's another reason why we're very excited to have him here—to discuss his work on Maa Ka Doodh, the gutsy documentary that takes an unflinching look at India's Dairy Industry. “Even to this day, about 20 to 30 percent, I would say roughly of our guests are nonveg, but they are vegan when they're with us. And they always say right at the beginning, because, again, preconceived notions people have that we don't really eat. Vegans really don't eat. You know? We only eat salads and side dishes, and it's all bland. And so they always come up, usually in the first day or so, and say, ‘Hey, you know what, look, I may have to duck out on a meal, or another meal,' and they'll go grab something, and by the time we get to the end of it, and I even will say, because we have one free night or something where people can go out on their own, and I say ‘this is your opportunity if you wanted to go out,' and they're like, ‘no way. Are you kidding?'” - Zac Lovas What we discuss in this episode: What it was like for Zac to move to India at the age of 18. How he transitioned from working in the film industry to creating a tour company. What differentiates his vegan tour company from others. The countries his company explores. How living abroad has changed his worldview. Zac's travel tips for first-time travelers to Asia. Insights into the making of the documentary Maa Ka Doodh, and the truth about what's happening to cows in India.
