Welcome to episode #828 of Six Pixels of Separation. Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #828 - Host: Mitch Joel. Laura Huang is a professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School. Laura's research examines interpersonal relationships and implicit bias in entrepreneurship and in the workplace. She is the creator and co-founder of Project EMplify, an initiative dedicated to addressing inequality and disadvantage through personal empowerment. Previously, she held positions in investment banking, consulting, and management, for organizations such as Standard Chartered Bank, IBM Global Services, and Johnson & Johnson. Her first book is entitled, Edge - Turning Adversity into Advantage, and it looks at how to find a competitive edge when the obstacles feel insurmountable. How do you get people to take you seriously when they're predisposed not to, and perhaps have already written you off? Through her deeply-researched framework, Laura shows how we can turn weaknesses into strengths and create an edge in any situation. She explains how an entrepreneur scored a massive investment despite initially being disparaged for his foreign accent, and how a first-time political candidate overcame voters' doubts about his physical disabilities. Special shout-out to Laura Gassner Otting for the introduction to Laura. Enjoy the conversation... Running time: 53:13. Hello from beautiful Montreal. Subscribe over at Apple Podcasts.

Over the past two years, people across this country were censored, suspended, and even banned from social media for questioning the potential side-effects of the vaccine. Many people were also fired from their workplace if they refused to take it. However, the FDA just released an official statement announcing that it will be severely restricting the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, due to serious concerns of a blood clotting disorder. Specifically, due to a disorder called thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), the FDA has decided to almost entirely shelve the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, except in special situations.

This week your hosts Steve Lowry and Yvonne Godfrey interview Michael A. Kelly of Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger (https://dicellolevitt.com/)   Remember to rate and review GTP in iTunes: Click Here To Rate and Review   Episode Details: Accomplished California personal injury lawyer Michael A. Kelly, a shareholder at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger and recent Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame inductee, shares how he secured justice for the first of thousands of victims of a defectively designed medical device. On December 5, 2007, U.S. Air Force veteran Loren "Bill" Kransky underwent hip surgery in Montana, receiving a DePuy ASR Acetabular Hip System orthopaedic implant. DePuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, first put the ASR Acetabular Hip System on the market in Europe in 2004, and soon after began receiving notifications from prominent surgeons that the device was flawed. Despite receiving these notifications, DePuy continued to market the metal implant as a low-wear product that required only one surgery and failed to report product issues to American doctors. On August 4, 2010, a recall was issued and the Depuy ASR Acetabular Hip System was labeled as defective, but the damage was already done for millions of patients, including Loren. Following the recall, Loren underwent revision surgery to have the implant removed because it was shedding metal debris into the tissue of his hip and bloodstream. In March 2013, a Los Angeles jury returned a verdict in favor of Loren, awarding $8,338,136.12 in damages for the pain caused by the defective design and ultimately helping to facilitate a $2.5 billion national settlement for all victims.  Click Here to Read/Download Trial Documents   Guest Bio: Michael A. Kelly Mike Kelly is one of the nation's top personal injury attorneys. For four decades he has protected consumers from corporate greed, medical mistakes, dangerous household products, unsafe medical devices, and motor vehicle accidents of every kind. He has tried, settled, and arbitrated more than 200 cases where the recovery by his client exceeded $1 million. In 2020 he helped negotiate the multibillion-dollar resolution of the 2017 California wildfire lawsuits brought against utility giant PG&E. Before that, his $8.341 million verdict in the first DePuy ASR/Johnson & Johnson metal-on-metal artificial hip litigation helped produce a $2.5 billion national settlement for all victims. In 2021 Mike was the number one vote-getter for the second year in a row on the 2021 list of Northern California “Super Lawyers”. A member of the prestigious Inner Circle of Advocates, Kelly was also included on the “Top 10” and “Top 100” list of lawyers in Northern California for the 18th time, as well as being selected by Best Lawyers to its prestigious roster for the 20th consecutive year. Recognized for his leadership in some of the most significant consumer protection cases in our state, Kelly made the list of the Los Angeles Daily Journal's 2021 Top Plaintiff Lawyers and was inducted into Lawdragon's Hall of Fame for his many years of pro-consumer successes, most recently demonstrated by his role in the litigation against the giant utility PG&E for the damage caused by the 2017-2018 Northern California wildfires and the devastating Butte County Camp Fire. When resolution by mediation or settlement fails, Kelly is ready to take his clients' cases before juries. Recent trials have produced a $4 million jury verdict against the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District for the death of a pedestrian struck by one of its buses, a $5.6 million jury verdict against a Super Shuttle driver for the death of a retired restaurateur, a $12.75 million recovery against a domestic automaker(auto rollover), a $10.5 million settlement for the wrongful death of a single mother, and a major 8-figure confidential settlement against Kaiser Health Plan for a catastrophically injured infant. His $8.35 million verdict on behalf of a construction worker who lost an arm showed his skill in work-site injury cases. His $23.2 million jury verdict in a birth injury medical malpractice case in Minnesota ranks among that state's largest verdicts for obstetrical injury. Beyond stellar results for his clients, Kelly is proud of his many contributions to the legal community. He is a speaker for 360 Advocacy for whom he chairs its annual Trucking Litigation program. He teaches regularly for NITA, The Rutter Group, ABOTA, the Consumer Attorneys of California, AAJ, SFTLA, and the Bar Association of San Francisco. He served for 10 years as the Director of Teacher Training programs for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy and remains a member of its Board of Governors. He has long been active in protecting the rights of the underrepresented, working for pedestrian and bicyclist safety, lobbying for compensation fairness for medical malpractice victims, and protecting the rights of the LGBT community.

Change doesn't have to be painful. Tamsen Webster dives into the power of helping clients find their Red Thread and narrowing your marketing message to reach the audience you want!      In this episode, Cathy and Tamsen a discuss:  What the Red Thread is and how to find your Red Thread Four qualities of a successful Red Thread for sales and marketing messages: Relevant - Answers the question how customers can get what they want Resilient - Must be able to stand up to rationalization of why they purchased Remarkable - Gives customers what they want in a way they don't expect  Repeatable- Have an easy way to state it and share it with other people  The importance of having a specific message and narrowing your target market  The value of understanding your audience's perspective of your products and services How to know if a red thread is viable:  Audience Goal - What your audience wants that your product or service can help them get  Problem or Perspective - Two part problem: Articulates and describes the current lens used to solve the problem vs. the lens you use to solve it   Truth - Assumption that you have about the world or how it works, that makes the new problem impossible to ignore Change - Big shift in thinking or behavior that your idea, product or service, or even you, represent What to know about marketing in the health and wellness industry vs. other industries  Taking the pain out of change and making sure the cure isn't worse than the diagnosis        Memorable Quotes: “The story, the things that you've done in your life, the different things that you tell yourself, all have common elements…the Red Thread is that common element that runs through all the things that you do.” “As counterintuitive as it may be, the narrower your focus in a particular message, the broader the reach because it's much more likely that it's going to be heard and acted on and talked about with other people.”  “One of the biggest shifts that the Red Thread is all about, it's looking at your products and services from the perspective of your audience…you'll end up spending a lot less time focused on features and benefits and a lot more time talking about and connecting how that product or service helps your audience achieve a particular outcome or solve a problem.”  “That's our job, particularly in health and wellness, is to figure out how to make sure that the cure is not worse than the diagnosis, that we're not asking them nor not asking people to do something that is harder for them mentally and emotionally.”    Tamsen Webster has spent the last twenty years helping experts drive action from their ideas. Part message strategist, part storyteller, part English-to-English translator, her work focuses on how to find and build the stories partners, investors, clients, and customers will tell themselves—and others. Tamsen honed her expertise through work in and for major companies and organizations like Johnson & Johnson, Harvard Medical School, and Intel, as well as with startups that represent the next wave of innovation in life science, biotech, climate tech, fintech, and pharma. She's a professional advisor at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship and a mentor for the Harvard Innovation Labs. She's also served for over eight years as executive producer and idea strategist for one of the oldest locally organized TED Talk events in the world (TEDxCambridge). She was a reluctant marathoner... twice, is a champion ballroom dancer (in her mind), and learned everything she knows about messages, people, and change as a Weight Watchers leader.

3 Questions for Anti-Vaxxers

I respect vaccine skeptics. They keep vaccine proponents honest. They force vaccine defenders to provide strong justifications. It's important to communicate with them with respect, not derision. If you think there's skepticism in the high-income, educated world, you should visit the rest of the world. It's higher. I'd like to respectfully address some of the concerns that vaccine skeptics have. Two-year anniversary The Coronavirus Pandemic has lasted for two years, which is the same amount of time that took for the Spanish Flu Pandemic to begin to die out. Are you fearful? I fear neither the Coronavirus nor its vaccines. Most people fear one or both. That fear pushes them to take a strong position. I don't take a strong position because I don't give a fuck what people do since COVID is no big deal unless you're old and/or fat. Answer these 3 questions 1. What is the percentage chance that you'll get COVID? 2. If you get COVID, what is the percentage chance that you'll get extremely sick or die? 3. What is the percentage chance that you will get extremely sick or die from getting a COVID vaccine? My estimates 1. 80% - if it's not already endemic, it will be in 2022. 2. Less than 1%. If you're old/fat, much higher. If you're thin/young, much lower. 3. 10-1000x less likely than #2. I took the vaccine because I figured that the odds that I would get hospitalized (or die) due to COVID was probably 1 in 1,000 since I'm old but not fat. Meanwhile, the odds of getting seriously fucked up from the vaccine was probably, at worst, 1 in 10,000. If my estimates are reasonable, the answer was clear. Neither poses a grave risk. I do many things that are far riskier. So I need not lose sleep over either the vaccines or COVID. Of the two highly unlikely events, getting fucked up from the vaccine was even less likely than the virus destroying me. What do anti-vaxxers say? Of course, anti-vaccine folks probably flip my estimates. Some flip them to a comical level. One friend claimed that if she took the vaccine, there was an 80% chance that she would be hospitalized, which is fucking hilarious. I'd advise you to research this, but the problem with the internet is that you can find a seemingly "reliable source" for almost anything you can imagine. I can "prove" that: the moon landings didn't happen the world is flat broccoli is bad for you When to question the majority If you don't want to take a vaccine, it's probably because you don't trust the standard news sources. And you don't trust over 90% of doctors and medical experts. I'm all for taking contrarian perspectives - I do it all the time. There's a famous line: Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain However, at some point, you might want to pause and reflect more carefully if you're in the minority. Why not be skeptical about whether murder, stealing, or Hitler are bad? The evil mainstream media, the powerful politicians, and the fat cat corporations are unanimously pushing the narrative that murder, stealing, and Hitler are horrible. Shouldn't that make you suspicious? Isn't obvious why that is? I'll tell you why: They're against murder because they want to keep the population high so that more people are competing for jobs and that brings wages down! They're against stealing because the prison and justice system makes fat profits from all the thieves - and powerful people don't want to cut into their ill-gotten gains! They're against Hitler because all those powerful entities are run by Jews and they don't want another populist to get elected! The point of my ludicrous arguments is that you can always take a contrarian viewpoint. You can always invent a conspiracy theory. However, believe it or not, the majority is usually right about most things.  Why should anyone care whether others take the vaccine? The libertarian in me doesn't give a fuck if someone doesn't want to take the vaccine just like I don't give a fuck if someone doesn't want to wear a seatbelt. The only problem I have is when taxpayers have to pay for the hospitalization costs of those who don't wear seatbelts. Unfortunately, it's too draconian to put a law that says, "No seatbelt, then the government will not cover your car accident costs." The same goes for vaccines. If people want to defy the conventional wisdom that vaccines and seatbelts are helpful, that's fine, but don't expect society to pay for your medical bills if you're wrong. Long-term side effects of vaccines? The skeptic fears the long-term side effects of vaccines. But those same skeptics have several vaccines in their bodies. Most of us have taken vaccines for typhoid, tetanus, rubella, measles, mumps, Hep A/B, and polio. If you've traveled to the tropics, you probably got the yellow fever vaccine. If vaccines are going to have nasty side effects, they always show those side effects hours, days, or weeks after the shot. It won't show up 5 years later.  On the contrary, vaccines get weaker with time, which is why we usually need booster shots. But what about mRNA vaccines? If you're worried about the dreaded new technology of mRNA, you can do what I did: take the Johnson & Johnson one-shot vaccine. Or the Chinese or Russian vaccines, which are based on traditional vaccine development methods.  If those vaccines haven't significant side effects after being out for over one year and having gone through 100 million shots, then they won't have side effects in five years. Every year, vaccines for typhoid, tetanus, rubella, measles, mumps, Hep A/B, yellow fever, and polio send people to the hospital due to horrible side effects. However, those are exceedingly rare events. If one in 100,000 people who get a vaccine get hospitalized due to the vaccine, that's 80,000 cases worldwide (assuming everyone gets the vaccine)! Imagine that! 80,000 potential news stories of people falling gravely ill due to a vaccine! And if kills one in a million, then that's 8,000 deaths from vaccines! Horrible, right? Not necessarily. You must ask yourself, are my odds of dying from the coronavirus lower than one in a million? Humans are poor with math and statistics. I hope this helps.  Share Share this post if you think it might help an open-minded person who is on the fence (if such a creature still exists).

More than 80% of strokes are caused by blood clots. These strokes are called "ischemic" because the clot block the flow of blood through a blood vessel, starving brain cells of oxygen and nutrients. My own stroke was ischemic. There are new treatments to clear the clot and restore blood flow and we talk about them a lot on this show. What we don't usually discuss is the nature of clots themselves and how that impacts patient recovery. So this episode is a little different. We go deep into understanding the biologfy of blood clots with Michael Gilvarry and Dr. Patrick Brouwer from Cerenovus, a Johnson & Johnson company. Cerenovus commits a lot of research and resources to understanding clots because they make equipment used in Mechanical Thrombectomy and reduce the impact of stroke on thousands of patients a year.

Before joining CERENOVUS as Head of Worldwide Medical Affairs, he served in senior staff positions for over 20 years as a neurointerventionalist at various university hospitals in Europe. As a key opinion leader in his field, Patrick has published close to 100 scientific papers and book chapters and lectured, including for invited professorships, on more than 400 occasions around the world on a variety of topics related to neurointervention. Patrick has additionally contributed by serving in various board positions across key societies, such as the European Society of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapy (ESMINT) and the World Federation of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology (WFITN). He received his medical degree, with honors, from the Free University in the Netherlands. Connect with Dr. Brouwer on LinkedIn.

With a distinguished career in research and development (R&D) spanning over 20 years, Michael leads the CERENOVUS campus in Galway which is a key hub for producing world-class leading research on stroke and clot science, as well as R&D for the business' product pipeline. He leads a distinguished team who informs new innovations and the development of medical devices to address real-world challenges faced by neurovascular physicians in the treatment of stroke. This work has led to many international research projects in collaboration with universities and hospitals in the field of acute ischemic stroke. He is the recipient of a Johnson Medal, the most prestigious award for R&D excellence within Johnson & Johnson, and is a named inventor on over 60 U.S. patents. Connect with Michael on LinkedIn.

Nature of clots Most folks who encounter clots only experience them on the surface of the body or when they come out of the body, but we don't think too much about their nature, especially wqhen they stay inside the body. At the most basic levels, the structure of a clot is determined by the ratio of fibrin to red blood cells. Clots that are high in fibrin tend to be "tougher" and more compact, thanks to the way platelets help tighten them up. That also makes them easier to remove with Mechanical Thrombectomy.  Clots that are higher in red blood cells may be softer and less dense, but they are also more fragile. Pulling one out of a blood vessel in one piece is a lot harder. An environment with higher sheer forces is more likely to generate a high-fibrin clot. What is a high sheer environment? Think about a river with a strong, fast flowing current. One way to get a high sheer environment is with high blood pressure. With high blood pressure, blood is coursing through less flexible vessels with greater speed and strength. A high red blood cell clot is more likely to be formed in a turbulent environment. AFIB, or atrial fibrillation is one such environment. A space where blood flows unevenly or pools can lead to a clot like this which can then travel to the brain. Clots can also be different shapes. It's not like they are just a disk that closes off a blood vessel. They could be in the shape of a cylinder blocking a blood vessel. The can easily be longer than 8 mm. Cerenovus recently presented a paper at the American Heart Association's International Stroke conference looking at the impact of clot composition on patient outcomes in mechanical thrombectomy. They showed that thrombectomy had better patient outcomes with high-fibrin clots. Of course, today there really isn't a way from a neuro-interventionist to know the type of clot before they go in to get it. In the future such information may help inform treatment protocols or refine the type of equipment used in the clot removal process. You can read more about the research paper here. What is AFIB? More than 12 million people in the US live with Atrial Fibrillation. It's a condition that can easily lead to stroke. Afib happens when the heart gets out of sync with itself. The upper chambers don't beat in the same rhythm as the lower chambers. That results in inefficient blood flow through the heart. Not all the blood that should leave on a beat actually leave. Bill's Zio Patch heart monitor is looking for signs of Afib. It did not find any. This results in blood pooling in the heart and creating a turbulent environment that is a breeding ground for blood clots. Eventually one of those clots will shoot out of the heart and lodge in the brain causing an ischemic stroke.  When I got home from the hospital, I wore a heart monitor for two weeks that looked for signs of Afib. It did not find any. Folks with Afib, and especially a history of Afib-related stroke may be put on a lifelong course of anticoagulant medication to prevent those clots from forming. There may be other treatments, as well. What happened to my clot? I had a wakeup stroke in 2017. As a result, I was outside the window for tPA and thrombectomy at the time. So what happens when the clot doesn't get removed? I just assumed it would break down over time and blood would start flowing through the dead brain tissue again. But that's probably not what happened. Because the blood vessel where I had my stroke is so small, it's likely still in place. That clot never went away. It simply became part of the blood vessel itself and that part of the system permanently collapsed. Basically, the cave collapsed and there's no way to dig it out. And now I'm imaging some sort of Fantastic Voyage/D&D crossover game to go explore that cave. Meade Musings I recently appeared on the Meade Musings Podcast sharing my story. We talk about my stroke  and the impact of Sleep Apnea on blood pressure. You can hear the episode here.

It's a weeklong cruise in the Caribbean with 1800 nerds, geeks, gamers, creators, and more. We chartered the Nieuw Amsterdam cruise ship for the journey and had a blast. The crew was great and my fellow cruisers were fantastic. Unlike a traditional cruise, the official programming is all done by the group that charters the boat, led by musicians Jonathan Coulton and Paul & Storm. They bring on a bunch of other well-known and soon to be well known musicians, writers, voice over folks, actors, and generally fun, nice, talented people. And then the attendees ourselves put together a bunch of programming. I ran a meet up for folks with neuro conditions, a professional networking session, a podcaster meetup, and a photoshoot for the stuffed animals people travelled with. I have lots of other thoughts and feelings about this year's cruise, but I'm having trouble articulating them in writing this time.

At first glance it seems those two things are in conflict, but in reality, they are not. Setting goals helps you build a plan for the future with tasks you can do today that can get you there.  The steps you take today are what will shape your future. And if the steps you take can get you there, there is fulfillment to be found in taking them. At the same time, we don't live in the future. We live in the present. It's the only reality we will ever have. We need to appreciate the world and the people around us and if we can't then we need to take steps to change that. And execute those steps while recognizing the sheer power of the here and now. Because before we know it, the here and know will simply be the past. Survivors who've come close to not having any more future on this earth can appreciate that more than most. Hack 2 Michael Gilvarry talked about adding additional therapy while doing other tasks. He suggested closing your eyes while you brush your teeth. It's something he found helpful while rehabbing his own knee. I like this approach especially for folks after stroke because it forces you to work on proprioception - the sense of where your body parts are in space. This is a challenge for many survivors. It's a skill we may need to develop. It also forces use to focus more on the balance in our core and affected leg while our unaffected hand is busy with the tooth brush.  This can be a good challenge after stroke. That said, do it safely. Make sure you can stand with your eyes closed without falling, first. Talk to a PT or OT before trying things like this. You want to challenge your brain with these balance tasks, but any fall could undo months of progress. So don't fall. Links Where do we go from here?

On February 25, 2022, Johnson & Johnson, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd., McKesson Corp., Cardinal Health, Inc., and Amerisourcebergen Corp. announced that they had agreed to finalize a reported $26 billion settlement to resolve approximately 3,000 lawsuits from state and local governments regarding the opioid abuse crisis. The private plaintiffs' trial firms representing the counties and municipalities filed the first lawsuit in California in 2014. The proposed settlement allocates approximately $2.3 billion for the plaintiffs' attorneys' fees and costs. The most controversial legal issue was whether the defendants' marketing created a “public nuisance.” The companies continue to face claims in Alabama, Washington, West Virginia and Oklahoma, where in November 2021 the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the state's public nuisance statute did not extend to the manufacturing, marketing, and selling of prescription opioids. On November 23, 2021, an Ohio federal jury found CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart pharmacies liable for recklessly distributing opioids in Lake and Trumbull counties in Ohio. Rite Aid and Giant Eagle settled in 2021. U.S. District Court Judge Dan Polster is scheduled to decide damages this spring. Please join us on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, at 2:00pm EST/11:00am PST, as John Shu, who has been following the national litigations, will hold a Zoom webinar to update us on the litigations in California, Oklahoma, and Ohio, and discuss their legal and strategic issues.

Bienvenido a La Wikly.Lo importante: la relación entre Estados Unidos y China pasa por un momento trascendental conforme el planeta intenta escapar del yugo pandémico y el mapa geopolítico se redibuja bajo presiones políticas, económicas y climáticas.Algunos lo tildan de guerra fría. Otros, de una entendible rivalidad entre las dos grandes potencias económicas y militares del mundo.Explícamelo: la confrontación entre EE. UU. y China se da a numerosos niveles geopolíticos, así que en esta newsletter queremos ver los distintos factores y estrategias que definen los bandos de la confrontación entre ambas potencias.💰 Aliados económicosEQUIPO USA🇺🇸Los principales aliados económicos de EE. UU. son sus países limítrofes y vecinos: Canadá y México. Este último se situó durante el primer bimestre de 2021 como su principal socio comercial, representando el 14.9 por ciento del intercambio internacional total de EE.UU.NAFTA. Ambos países son socios formales de EE. UU. desde 1992, cuando formalizaron la alianza económica mediante el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (NAFTA).El NAFTA propone una zona de libre comercio que permite reducir los costos para promover el intercambio de bienes entre los tres países.T-MEC. Estos lazos comerciales se reafirmaron mediante la firma del Tratado entre México, Canadá y EE. UU. (T-MEC) en 2018, una propuesta presentada por el expresidente estadounidense Donald Trump que mejoraba las condiciones de NAFTA.El T-MEC tiene una vigencia de 16 años y podrá ser sujeto a revisión en plazos determinados, haciendo obligatorias las normas y prácticas laborales establecidas por la Organización Internacional del Trabajo (OIT).Incluye acuerdos como los relacionados con la industria automotriz: para que un auto pueda ser exportado libre de aranceles, sea producido en un 75 por ciento en uno de los tres países del acuerdo.Además, entre el 40 y 45 por ciento del auto debe haber sido fabricado por trabajadores que ganen al menos 16 dólares la hora, preferentemente sindicalizados.EQUIPO CHINA🇨🇳 Los principales socios comerciales de China son EE. UU. y Japón, pero el Gigante Asiático ha ido cimentando relaciones económicas con infinidad de otros países en su expansión de influencia por Asia, Europa, África y Latinoamérica.La Iniciativa de la Franja y la Ruta, o la Nueva Ruta de la Seda, es un plan de infraestructura billonario lanzado en 2013 por el presidente Xi Jinping que abarca iniciativas de desarrollo e inversión que se extiende por todo el globo.China apoya a decenas de países en proyectos de infraestructura que de otra manera serían incapaces de financiar por sí mismos, creando vínculos comerciales importantes.Esos vínculos se traducen en deudas difíciles de sostener que, en algunos casos, obligan a los países a ceder a China el control de alguno de esos proyectos ya construidos.China llegó a firmar acuerdos de este tipo con casi 70 países, pero las controversias de corrupción y endeudamiento están poniendo frenos al sueño de Jinping —y el G7 ya ha ofrecido una alternativa, aunque ni tan barata ni tan poco enrevesada.La Asociación Económica Integral Regional es el mayor tratado de libre comercio del mundo y el primero de su estilo que incluye a China. Entre los firmantes están algunas de las mayores potencias económicas de Asia (Corea del Sur, Japón) y Oceanía (Australia).El acuerdo facilita las exportaciones entre los países miembro y asegura un marco comercial favorable para China en la región del Indopacífico.🗺 Aliados geopolíticosEQUIPO USA🇺🇸EE. UU. está buscando activamente mantener e incluso incrementar su influencia geopolítica en las zonas aledañas al Gigante Asiático. ¿Cómo? Aprovechando el temor de muchos países de la región a ser avasallados por China.AUKUS. Lo vimos recientemente con la alianza trilateral que incluye a Reino Unido y Australia. El objetivo principal es que Australia cuente con la capacidad militar suficiente como para frenar los avances chinos en el Indopacífico.Una situación que analizamos en detalle en esta edición de La Wikly.QUAD. También lo venimos viendo en los foros del Diálogo de Seguridad Cuadrilateral (QUAD) que desde 2007 convocan a EE. UU., Japón, Australia e India para coordinar ejercicios militares conjuntos.Diálogo que ha tenido su edición más reciente hace poco más de un mes, con Biden recibiendo en la Casa Blanca a los jefes de estado de estos países para discutir, entre otras cosas, sobre una región del Indopacífico “libre y abierta”.Los intereses superpuestos en la zona del Indopacífico es algo que analizamos en esta otra edición de La Wikly.EQUIPO CHINA🇨🇳China carece de una alianza multilateral del nivel de la OTAN, con lo que su influencia militar tiene que ver más con su poder naval en el Indopacífico y sus relaciones con Rusia, cada vez más cercanas.Indopacífico. Pese al poder marítimo de Pekín, es su envergadura económica la herramienta que mejor puede usar China para influir sobre sus vecinos, como concluyó la RAND Corporation en un informe publicado en 2020.La histórica presencia naval de EE. UU. en la región ha quedado diluida en los últimos años conforme los países cercanos han sopesado lo que significaría una represalia comercial por parte de China.Las hostilidades chinas en el Mar de la China Meridional, una región de intereses geopolíticos enfrentados entre multitud de países, acercan a EE. UU. a los países pequeños que necesitan de apoyo estadounidense para contrarrestar a Pekín (Filipinas, Taiwán).Rusia. Pekín y Moscú no tienen una alianza militar per se lejos del Tratado de Amistad que firmaron ambos países a primeros de siglo XXI y una hoja de ruta de cooperación militar acordada en 2017.Los intereses de Rusia y China confluyen en Asia central desde hace generaciones, como bien demuestran sus acuerdos multilaterales con algunos países de la región, pero sin duda el marco global de plantar cara a EE. UU. también forma parte de los acercamientos recientes.Muchos expertos aseguran que China y Rusia no han dado señales de estar coordinándose militarmente al nivel de la OTAN y otras alianzas se seguridad de EE. UU., pero la cooperación sí va en aumento.Y eso significa mayor compra de armas de China a Rusia y entendimientos en materia de defensa de misiles o submarinos nucleares.🤝 Aliados diplomáticosEQUIPO USA🇺🇸Como adelantamos a comienzos de año, la victoria de Biden en las elecciones presidenciales de 2020 supuso la vuelta de EE. UU. a algunos espacios de diálogo multilateral abandonados por Trump. Los ejemplos clave:Regresar al Acuerdo Climático de París después de que Trump lo abandonara en 2019, por ejemplo, fue una de las primeras medidas de Biden en esee sentido.Con el cambio climático ocupando un lugar cada vez más relevante en la agenda global, la próxima arena diplomática que EE. UU. podrá aprovechar para defender su liderazgo es la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático (COP 26) de la semana que viene.La gira por Europa que el mandatario realizó a mediados de año con el objetivo de recuperar vínculo con las naciones europeas, uno que sufrió un gran deterioro con las decisiones que tomó la administración anterior en materia de política exterior.Biden asistió el pasado junio a la cumbre de la Organización del Tratado Atlántico del Norte (OTAN), donde un comunicado posterior calificó a China como un “desafío sistémico”:“Las ambiciones declaradas y el comportamiento asertivo de China presentan desafíos sistémicos para las reglas en las que se basa el orden internacional y para las áreas relevantes en lo que respecta a la seguridad de la alianza”, declaraba el comunicado oficial publicado al terminar la cumbre.En esta entrega de La Wikly listamos las claves del viaje.EQUIPO CHINA🇨🇳Pese al ascenso meteórico de China en la escala global, cabe pensar que el Gigante Asiático se enfrenta a un momento trascendental en su afán por convertirse en la primera potencia económica global.El país carece de los recursos y de la población joven necesarios como para justificar su dedicación absoluta al crecimiento desenfrenado que ha experimentado en las últimas décadas.En resumen, no puede seguir agotando recursos y endeudándose solo por querer ser los primeros.En ese contexto, China está abrazando una política diplomática cada vez más agresiva para contrarrestar su desaceleración económica y el llamado ‘cerco estratégico’ que están ejerciendo EE. UU. y sus vecinos sobre ellos a nivel militar y comercial.Acuerdos como AUKUS y QUAD o la notable inversión militar de países como Indonesia, Vietnam y Filipinas solo hacen que confirmar esa amenaza al crecimiento chino.La lucha contra el cambio climático se ha convertido así en una de las pocas armas de Jinping para ejercer cierta influencia diplomática en el marco global, aunque las dificultades energéticas de su país —y su ausencia en la cumbre climática de Glasgow— ponen en riesgo esa postura.La promoción de su sistema político como ejemplo de éxito pese a las evidentes tendencias autócratas es el otro gran arma de Pekín, y una que suele tener menos cabida en los análisis geopolíticos pese a su relevancia para el futuro de las democracias.Líderes de todo el mundo pueden mirar con envidia la forma en la que China ha reprimido a sus críticos, sea en Tíbet o Hong Kong, o ha controlado la mala prensa de sus peores acciones, como en el caso de los Uigures en Xinjiang.Y más en un momento en el que EE. UU. pasa por una crisis existencial a nivel político evidenciada por las divisiones ideológicas internas y la inestabilidad que ha dejado la administración de Trump.🦠 Aliados pospandémicosEQUIPO USA🇺🇸El lema “America first” le robó a EE. UU., al menos en un principio, la ventaja de reforzar y conseguir nuevas alianzas mediante acuerdos para la producción y distribución de la vacuna contra el covid-19.La “carrera diplomática de las vacunas” estuvo liderada en principio por Rusia, con la vacuna Sputnik V, y China, con las vacunas Sinopharm y Sinovac.Sin embargo, la administración de Biden se fijó como objetivo lograr que el mundo tenga un 70 por ciento de vacunación en 2022. En mayo, Biden prometió una donación a países de todo el mundo de 80 millones de dosis de Pfizer, Moderna y Johnson & Johnson.De ese total, 60 millones se asignaron a países a través del mecanismo del Fondo de Acceso Global para Vacunas Covid-19 (COVAX). Los otros 20 millones irían directamente a los países considerados prioridades regionales para Estados Unidos.En septiembre, poco después de hablar en la Asamblea General de la ONU, Biden anunció una ampliación en su compromiso de compra de vacunas para países en desarrollo a 1.000 millones de dosis totales de Pfizer. Las donaciones que EE. UU. ha realizado a los países de América han contribuido a mantener su posición de liderazgo regional. Inicialmente, varios países de América Latina debían la mayor parte de su porcentaje de vacunación a Rusia y China.Algo que, como podemos apreciar en el siguiente gráfico, ha cambiado:EQUIPO CHINA🇨🇳 China no solo estuvo entre los primeros países que logró sintetizar una vacuna contra el coronavirus, sino que también supo diversificar el producto. Actualmente, comercia tres vacunas diferentes:Sinopharm, desarrollada por la farmacéutica estatal Sinopharm y el Instituto de Productos Biológicos de Pekín.Fue la primera en producirse, a finales de diciembre de 2020, y tiene la ventaja de que para su conservación solo es necesaria la temperatura de una heladera común.Sinovac o Coronavac, elaborada por el laboratorio Sinovac Biotech y con las mismas ventajas logísticas que la de Sinopharm.Convidecea o CanSino, producida por el Instituto de Biotecnología de Pekín y la farmacéutica CanSino Biologics Inc.A diferencia de las anteriores, requiere solo una dosis.A diferencia de EE. UU., China comenzó rápidamente a distribuir vacunas a gran escala. Según algunos cálculos, sus laboratorios vendieron o recibieron pedidos internacionales por más de 800 millones de dosis. El gobierno chino asegura que ya ha distribuido más de 1.100 millones de dosis a más de 120 países.Además, Pekín prometió 10 millones de dosis para el Fondo Global de Acceso para Vacunas Covid-19 conocido como Covax, herramienta para distribuir vacunas independientemente de los recursos económicos de cada país promovido por la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS).Esta iniciativa no sólo representó una oportunidad económica y de proyección internacional de los laboratorios chinos, sino que le permitió consolidar vínculos con países estratégicamente importantes que necesitaban acceder a las vacunas.Aunque en los últimos meses, muchos países que antes pidieron vacunas a China han priorizado la importación de dosis de Moderna o Pfizer debido a la pérdida de eficacia de las vacunas chinas contra la variante Delta.¿Desea saber más? En Brookings tienen un enfoque de lo que debería hacer EE. UU. para contrarrestar la creciente influencia de China en el marco geopolítico global. Y en Foreign Affairs analizan la desesperación diplomática de China para adelantarse a sus montantes problemas económicos.🎬 Una recomendaciónCon la colaboración de FilminMás allá de las montañas es una película china de 2015 dirigida Jia Zhang-ke. Sigue la historia de Tao, una joven de Fenyang que tiene que decidirse entre dos de sus mejores amigos de la infancia.Formó parte de la Sección Oficial del Festival de Cannes en su año y acabó llevándose el Premio del Público en el Festival de San Sebastián que se celebró meses después.Zhang-ke es un realizador muy dado a explorar los aspectos políticos de su China natal en las historias que cuenta y Más allá de las montañas es ejemplo paradigmático de ese estilo de narración. La película es al mismo tiempo un melodrama romántico y un estudio de las transformaciones que ha sufrido China a lo largo de 25 años.El inicio del filme, con los protagonistas bailando al ritmo de Pet Shop Boys, es una premisa tan icónica como reveladora sobre lo que viene después: una China que se mete de lleno en un mundo cultural y económicamente globalizado que los cambiará para siempre.Zhang-ke se vale del trío protagonista para establecer un triángulo amoroso, una pirámide social de desigualdad y un tríptico sobre cómo el paso del tiempo y la llegada de la nostalgia arremeten contra los personajes.Y lo hace sin ser sobreexpositivo y con decisiones narrativas que van desde lo sutil, por la puesta en escena, hasta lo evidente, por los cambios de formato y del aspect ratio en cada uno de los tres episodios.Una película imprescindible para viajar a China.Más allá de las montañas está disponible en Filmin.🌟 Un vídeo para entender Malik vs. HadidZayn Malik y Yolanda Hadid protagonizaron esta semana uno de los mayores escándalos de la farándula estadounidense en lo que va de año, siendo el exmiembro de One Direction el que peor parado ha salido de toda la controversia.Explícamelo: Hadid acusa a Malik de haberla golpeado durante una discusión en la casa del cantante en Pennsylvania, según documentos judiciales obtenidos por TMZ.Malik no disputó los cuatro cargos criminales de acoso por los que le imputaron y deberá pagar una multa, pero con condiciones: está en probatoria durante 360 días, aunque podría terminar antes si completa una clase de control de la ira y un programa de violencia doméstica.Contexto: Malik sale desde hace años con la supermodelo Gigi Hadid, hija de Yolanda, que a su vez es famosa por protagonizar uno de los realities de The Real Housewives (en resumen: un reality de mujeres adineradas).Malik y Gigi han tenido sus más y sus menos, pero volvieron a estar juntos a primeros de 2020, cuando ella se quedó embarazada. Dio a luz a la hija de ambos en septiembre de ese año. La llamaron Khai.Malik y Gigi habría vuelto a romper hace meses, según fuentes de US Weekly, aunque TMZ dice que la ruptura se produjo después del incidente a finales de este pasado septiembre. En cualquier caso, lo que sí es obvio es que ahora no están juntos.De hecho, Malik tiene prohibido contactar con Yolanda y con el guarda de seguridad que presenció el altercado.Malik niega rotundamente haber golpeado a Yolanda, pero los documentos judiciales obtenidos por TMZ leen que el cantante empujó a la madre de Gigi y la estampó contra un vestidor, “causando angustia mental y dolor físico”.El cantante también la habría llamado “jodida furcia holandesa” y habría añadido: “aléjate de mi puta hija”. Y también, aunque no entiendo muy bien por qué, “el puto esperma que salió de [mi] puto coño”.Según Malik, la discusión comenzó porque Yolanda se presentó en la casa de Malik en Pennsylvania pese a que Gigi estaba fuera desde hace semanas —nadie sabe con seguridad si la pareja había roto en ese preciso momento, aunque una pelea de Malik en Nueva York que se hizo viral hace unos meses pudo ser el detonante de la ruptura.En algún punto del altercado, Gigi estaba al teléfono desde París, donde se encuentra trabajando, y Malik supuestamente le gritó: “ponte unas jodidas pelotas y defiende a tu pareja contra tu puta madre en mi casa”.Tanto Gigi como Malik han pedido privacidad en estos momentos, pero parece probable que conoceremos más detalles en las próximas semanas sabiendo la clase de filtraciones que suele haber en familias como la Hadid.De nada por el salseo.⚡️ Un memeEn otro orden de cosas, este lunes es festivo pero intentaremos hacer un nuevo Lunes por el mundo para dar un repaso de los principales titulares del panorama internacional con especial foco en la cumbre del G20 en Roma.Puedes seguir el stream en mi canal de Twitch.Hasta la semana que viene, This is a public episode.
