Rithy Panh also engages the history of French colonialism and the explores social difficulties of workers caught in neo-liberal development projects.

Mandarin From the Ground Up
Daily Practice Session - S2 - Lesson 06

README: How to use this recordingYou'll hear the dialogue from Lesson 06 twice.The first time, there will be a short pause after each line. During the pause, try to repeat aloud exactly what you hear.Repeating aloud is important, partly because you'll be training your speech muscles to make the sounds of Mandarin, and partly because you'll be getting feedback about how you sound (if you're listening with earbuds, I recommend practicing with one earbud out and one in, or else with both partially in, so that you can hear yourself better).The second time, there won't be any pauses -- try to "shadow" the sounds simultaneously as they are spoken, again aloud.This will help you practice stringing the sounds together and further reinforce the muscle memory speech patterns of Mandarin. If it feels way too fast, you can try shadowing only one of the two characters each time you listen. However, even then, don't expect to be able to keep up with everything at first.  It takes regular daily practice to start training your ears to have a more nuanced perception of the sounds, and to train your speech muscles to speak at natural speed.About the transcript:The transcript of the dialogue will be available once the next lesson is published. For now, just focus on the sounds, and try to see what new words, meanings, or sounds you notice with each new listen.

This weekend The Age will launch an important new series of stories about Truth Telling. Our series seeks to understand the impact of colonisation on Indigenous Victorians, how Indigenous peoples survived to tell their own stories, and to forge their own future on a path towards the nation's first Treaty. With many Indigenous languages already lost or dormant as a result of colonisation, the importance of preserving language, and for all Australians to learn it, has come into sharp focus. Today on Please Explain, Indigenous affairs journalist Jack Latimore joins Nathanael Cooper to discuss the importance of language.

There is no shortage of ecommerce companies popping up everywhere you look, especially in the U.S, where the culture of having a side hustle is making more and more people into entrepreneurs. Most of those companies sell products, and a lot of them also create or sell merch. That's where Printful comes into the picture. Printful offers on-demand printing and dropshipping so that companies of all shapes and sizes can design and deliver customized products all over the world. But, according to Raitis Purins, the Head of Marketing of Printful, that's not the main aspect of the company that has allowed it to grow to a $1 billion valuation.On this episode of Up Next in Commerce, Raitis explains that when it comes to serving burgeoning ecommerce brands, you have to do more than deliver products to them, you have to help educate them. Printful is only successful if the companies it serves survive and thrive, and so when 9 out of 10 new ecommerce businesses fail, that could spell trouble. Raitis explained that a lot of what Printful does is create content that not only helps the company rank on Google and bring in new customers, but also helps those customers figure out their footing in this crazy world of business. Enjoy this episode!Main Takeaways:Side Hustles As Printful's Main Hustle: Thanks to the culture of side hustles in the United States, there are more creators and entrepreneurs than ever before who all need merchandise. This audience is a fruitful place for companies like Printful and other personalization brands to lean into and deliver new products for.Encouraging Success: It is extremely difficult to create an ecommerce shop that stands the test of time. Success is hard to come by, and so if you serve those young brands, it benefits you to try to help them succeed. When they thrive, so do you, so if you have tips, best practices, or other lessons that you can share with those who come work with you, sharing what you know will create a mutually beneficial, and therefore loyal, relationship.Content, Content, Content: No one knows exactly what it takes to rank on Google, but there is consensus that content is king, and developing content around key themes, key words, and key phrases is one method that has worked before. In order to stay relevant and ranking, constantly be pushing out content around the keywords you identify as important, and build out that content in as many ways and languages as possible.For an in-depth look at this episode, check out the full transcript below.

Pieter Vanhove's World Literature After Empire: Rethinking Universality in the Long Cold War (2021), engages with the idea of ‘world' as it manifests in literary and philosophical studies. Taking an interdisciplinary and multilingual approach, Vanhove centers his discussion on literature and the arts, while drawing an important historical tableau of the Cold War that highlights the ways in which decolonization processes facilitated a multiplicity of ways to think of the ‘world'. His book engages at length with debates on world literature, postcolonial thought, and translation. In order to show the complex political and cultural tapestry of the Cold War, Vanhove engages in case studies on China and the Afro-Asian Writer's Bureau, Alberto Moravia and PEN International, Antonio Gramsci and Pier Paolo Pasolini, Jean-Paul Sartre and Patrice Lulumba, André Malraux, and Huang Yong Ping. In so doing, the Vanhove demonstrates how artists during the Cold War engaged in cultural discourse that was anti-imperialist, and whose questions centered on issues of race, sexuality, gender, and class. Vanhove's book argues for a process of deconstruction of the Eurocentric conception of the world, for a closer engagement with conceptions of the world in various contexts during the Cold War, and ultimately for using tools of deconstruction to “do justice to the untranslatability of cultural artifacts that call into question the logic of universalization.” Pieter Vanhove is an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Languages and Cultures at Lancaster University. He holds a PhD in Italian and Comparative Literature from Columnia University. Vanhove's publications include articles in Critical Asian Studies, estetica: studi e ricerche, Senses of Cinema, and Studi pasoliniani. Eralda Lameborshi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Literature and Languages at Texas A&M University Commerce. Her areas of research include world literature and cinema, Southeast European studies, Ottoman studies, postcolonial theory, and the global novel. Learn more about your ad choices.

Taking an interdisciplinary and multilingual approach, Vanhove centers his discussion on literature and the arts, while drawing an important historical tableau of the Cold War that highlights the ways in which decolonization processes facilitated a multiplicity of ways to think of the ‘world'. His book engages at length with debates on world literature, postcolonial thought, and translation. In order to show the complex political and cultural tapestry of the Cold War, Vanhove engages in case studies on China and the Afro-Asian Writer's Bureau, Alberto Moravia and PEN International, Antonio Gramsci and Pier Paolo Pasolini, Jean-Paul Sartre and Patrice Lulumba, André Malraux, and Huang Yong Ping. In so doing, the Vanhove demonstrates how artists during the Cold War engaged in cultural discourse that was anti-imperialist, and whose questions centered on issues of race, sexuality, gender, and class. Vanhove's book argues for a process of deconstruction of the Eurocentric conception of the world, for a closer engagement with conceptions of the world in various contexts during the Cold War, and ultimately for using tools of deconstruction to “do justice to the untranslatability of cultural artifacts that call into question the logic of universalization.” Pieter Vanhove is an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Languages and Cultures at Lancaster University. He holds a PhD in Italian and Comparative Literature from Columnia University. Vanhove's publications include articles in Critical Asian Studies, estetica: studi e ricerche, Senses of Cinema, and Studi pasoliniani.

Dane is a good friend and an even better storyteller. You can tell by the way he connects using language, talking about psychology, relationships, and development. His story starts at the Silicon Slopes, the rising tech mecha in Utah. While his high-level tech career was in an upward swing, he came to a crossroads. He chose Love and took the road less traveled. A path that ultimately led him to real estate. Dane lives his life like he tells his stories, with contagious pleasure. First off, he is the military spouse supporting his wife Kim, whose military career took them to the Land of the Rising Sun. Dane went from title running in a car dealership, to a director in tech speech and AI, to almost buying that same dealership, to a rebirth meditation that changed his life! All while living in Japan. He is every bit of the passionate storytelling character you could imagine with stories of Love and adventure that will fill your days. It is a pleasure to connect again with Dane in this episode. Listen to his storied path that goes from auto red lights to a green light Hugh. In this episode, we explore: From Tech to Real Estate Being a military spouse Love and Relationship Life in Japan Meeting Anthony The Power of Storytelling Connecting through Meaningful Language Golden buzzers are because of great stories About Dane: Over the past 6 years, Dane has been fortunate enough to work with some of the most amazing teams and some of the world's largest and most innovative brands, whilst supporting a navy spouse whose career has taken him across the globe. During that time, his strategic thinking and unyielding desire to provide value landed him in the center of executive sales roles, marketing and brand recognition, strategy, business development, artificial intelligence and machine learning, tech consulting, and personal coaching and mentoring. Living abroad in Japan, he had to completely reinvent himself, learn a new language, and develop a working knowledge of a complex culture that plays a major role in the world's global economy. It was one of the most challenging experiences of his life, yet one of the most rewarding both personally and professionally. At the beginning of 2021, he took the biggest chance of his life and moved to Missouri and partnered with a real estate investor named Hugh Carnahan as his chief operations and strategic officer where they are committed to building a 2-second lean company and buy and hold single family, commercial, and retail properties. His goal is to build strong communities through conscious real estate investing and use technology to enhance the human experience, whether that's in real estate or mentoring up and coming entrepreneurs, which lends to his overall mission of helping individuals and organizations tell their personal stories and share their unique visions with the world. The philosophy he lives by is: Action This Day! Snapshot Timestamp: 39:04 1. What is your number one failure in real estate? I didn't invest sooner 2.

In September-October 2021, SSEAC Stories will be hosting a mini-series of podcasts exploring the role that research plays in understanding and advocating for human rights in Southeast Asia. In the second episode, Dr Thushara Dibley talks with Professor Nick Enfield about how the field of linguistics intersects with human rights. They discuss some of the impacts that major hydro-electric dam projects in Laos have had on local communities, not just in changing day-to-day life, but in decreasing interethnic interactions, thereby eroding multiculturalism and multilingualism. In disrupting local indigenous exchanges, Professor Enfield argues that large development projects risk impeding the transmission of significant cultural knowledge, including traditional knowledge of biodiversity and environmental sustainability. The study of languages thus becomes a tool for understanding a broader set of human rights, from cultural to environmental rights. About Nick Enfield: Nick Enfield is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Sydney and director of the Sydney Social Sciences and Humanities Advanced Research Centre, and the Sydney Centre for Language Research. He is head of a Research Excellence Initiative on The Crisis of Post-Truth Discourse. His research on language, culture, cognition and social life is based on long term field work in mainland Southeast Asia, especially Laos. His recent books include The Languages of Mainland Southeast Asia (Cambridge University Press, 2021) and Mainland Southeast Asian Languages: A Concise Typological Introduction (Cambridge University Press, 2019). Nick has published widely in linguistics, anthropology, and cognitive science venues, and has written for The Guardian, the Times Literary Supplement, the Wall Street Journal, and Science. He is a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, the Royal Society of New South Wales, and the Australian Academy of the Humanities.
