Facebook's own https://www.theverge.com/2018/11/6/18068104/facebook-business-social-responsibility-myanmar-report (investigation) into the situation also found fault with the company's practices, and made various recommendations for how it should develop a human rights strategy to protect against such things from happening again.  Today, we're going to hear from a refugee from the violence, who is with other Rohingya refugees in a camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, as well as three human rights advocates. And we'll learn about another complaint filed by sixteen Rohingya youth to Ireland's Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the OECD, that argues that Facebook violated the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises by allowing its platform to be used to incite violence against them and their community. The remedy sought by these refugees is for Facebook to divest from a portion of its 2017 profits and provide remediation for their community in the form of educational activities and facilities in Cox's Bazar. Please note that the connection to Cox's Bazar was not perfect- if you have any trouble making out a word here or there, you can refer to the transcript at the Tech Policy Press website.

The Catholic Church in Asia operates in ignorance. We don't really know ourselves or the world in which we are called to proclaim the Good News. There is a realm of research to which we must turn, the social sciences. They can tell us not only about the world outside the Church, but about ourselves as well.  Professional research in sociology and psychology would enable us to escape the trap of no-longer-effective answers to no-longer-existing problems.  Father William Grimm, who lives in Japan,  shares some thoughts on this.Produced by Binu AlexFor news in and about the Church in Asia, visit www.ucanews.com

Kenton Clymer joins the podcast to speak about his book, "A Delicate Relationship: The United States and Burma/Myanmar since 1945." In the waning days of World War II, Americans were primarily concerned with stopping the spread of Communism, especially after Mao's revolution, which thrust neighboring Burma into an important geopolitical position. Initially, the US thought that U Nu, Burma's first Prime Minister, was too Socialist-leaning, while Ne Win, the eventual dictator, was seen as an anti-Communist strongman. The 1950s were a challenging decade for the Burmese government. The country's ethnic groups were suspicious of a powerful central government—with some like the Karen actively fighting against it—and the Chinese and Americans were engaged in geopolitical maneuvering in the north of the country. After Ne Win's second coup in 1962, the primary concern on the American side was ensuring that Burma didn't fall into the Soviet or Chinese camp as a result. For the next 26 years, the US looked on as civil liberties continued to erode, the economy collapsed, ethnic groups pushed for greater rights, scores of Indians were exiled, and the country became increasingly isolated and shut off from the rest of the world. Besides Communism, the only other real area of American interest in Burma was the narcotics trade. As Ne Win was staunchly opposed to drugs, he accepted American support, including aircraft and intelligence sharing, to eradicate the poppy fields. However, it is uncertain how effective this collaboration was, and in fact human rights activists later discovered that the Tatmadaw used the chemical sprays on human targets in the country's ethnic regions. The perception of Burma, and the shape of US relations, changed irrevocably in 1988, with the violent crackdown on student protests and the nullification of the subsequent election. The anti-Communist prism through which the American government's Burma policy had been viewed for decades changed to one of human rights; Aung San Suu Kyi was its figurehead.   Clymer addresses some important developments in recent Myanmar history up to the NLD's electoral victory in 2015, when his book was published, and discusses what occurred since. While he sees recurring cycles at play in the current situation, he also has reason for optimism. He feels that the current group of Gen-Z activists will not put up with oppressive military rule like in the past.

Yasmeen Abutaleb, health policy reporter at The Washington Post, joins Steve Morrison and Andrew Schwartz for this 136th episode. The Biden administration struggles on multiple fronts, from systemic dysfunction within agencies to increased polarization of virtually every measures to mitigate Covid-19. The administration wants to invest in a long-term vaccine strategy that protects against multiple variants in advance -- but lacks the resources. Omicron taught us:  "You can't start buying stuff when the wave has started.” "The disinformation problem is so widespread"  that "… everyone in the Biden administration is going to be distrusted by half of America." The US government has not staged a powerful Covid-19 messaging campaign on social media, and a national commission on the pandemic, with real bipartisan leadership, remains out of reach.  Courts are exercising considerable sway over health security policy which require a careful political calculations. Would appealing federal Judge Mizell's April 18 injunction against the national mask mandate on transport ultimately leave the CDC in a weakened position? Americans continue to experience the pandemic in vastly different ways, depending on socio-economic profile. Many who have protections through vaccines and treatments may feel they will be exempt from infection, yet they make up a significant share of those experiencing severe illness.

How does queer life fit into Buddhism and ritual? What role do gay men and trans women play in the practice of spirit mediumship and how do queer spirit mediums mediate between Thailand's religious fields? How can we understand the increasing numbers of queer spirit mediums across mainland Southeast Asia? Peter A. Jackson and Benjamin Baumann provide important insights into their new book Deities and Divas, Queer Ritual Specialists in Myanmar, Thailand and Beyond (NIAS Press 2021). Deities and Divas is the first book to trace commonalities between queer and religious cultures in Southeast Asia and the West. The book details the very prominent roles that gay men and trans women are playing in the spirit medium cults rapidly growing in Myanmar, Thailand and beyond. Visit the NIAS Press Webshop to find the book. Peter A. Jackson is Emeritus Professor in Thai cultural history at the Australian National University. Over the past four decades, he has written extensively on religion, gender and sexuality in modern Thailand as well as critical approaches to Asian area studies. His ongoing research includes studying media and masculinity in Thai gay cultures and religion and ritual in Thai communities affected by HIV. Benjamin Baumann is an assistant professor at the University of Heidelberg. His ethnographic work examines rural lifeworlds, socio-cultural identities and local language games in Thailand's lower Northeast, focusing on how the ghostly structures the imagination, reproduction of social collectives and communal sentiments of belonging.

David Forest: Uranium Could Get Really Expensive Fast

Tom welcomes commodities expert and researcher David Forest to the show. David is a writer for Casey Research and CEO of Ivor Exploration. David discusses the super spike phenomena in commodities which happen at the end of other general bull markets. The phase that follows usually impacts energy prices and brings further economic issues. Energy commodities including coal are now doing quite well. The third phase is where the precious metals outperform. Europe is blaming natural gas prices but they were already moving quite high before the Russia-Ukraine conflict. The reality is that Europe just doesn't have enough energy to go around. Recently, markets have seen the first options trades for $300 oil. Uranium is the only metal that has a hockey stick production cost curve. Most of it doesn't cost much to produce in Canada and Kazakhstan. However, if more uranium needs to be produced it will need much higher prices for other projects to become economical. In this sense, the Sprott SPUT could be useful to help build new production with higher prices. It may help to smooth out prices for the long term. Uranium is increasingly likely to become a strategic metal that governments will want to source close to home. We see this with rare earths and it didn't need to be this way. We legislated production of these metals to zero and therefore mining migrated to China. He discusses the growing trend of green electrification and the increasing need for copper. We also require grid storage battery solutions. We could even see partnerships between major manufacturers and resource companies wanting to secure metal supplies.

This is a special Women in Politics series for the Australia-PNG Network, in which the Lowy Institute's Jessica Collins sits down with prominent women from Papua New Guinea (PNG) to discuss the deep-seated challenge of women's political representation in the country. In this third episode, Jessica speaks with Damarise Bonga, a female candidate in the upcoming 2022 national election. Damarise shares her experience of running unsuccessfully in a prior election, and talks about the broader challenges for women trying to represent their communities in parliament. She says a fundamental issue lies in how people (both men and women) perceive leadership in PNG, and how this continues to be a significant barrier to balanced representation in the country. “In politics, in PNG it's quite different … They think that the Parliament is … hausman in Tok Pisin, meaning that it's a house for man. And that's kind of bias, you know.” Join Jessica and Damarise as they talk about how women can be more successful in future elections, including Damarise's views on all-women political parties and decentralising women's political leadership development programs. Damarise Bonga is planning to contest Papua New Guinea's upcoming national election. Damarise recently graduated from Papua New Guinea's Political Leadership Academy for Women in Port Moresby as one of many students in its first cohort. She also served as the appointed women's representative to the Oro Provincial Assembly and supported the PNG Special Parliamentary Committee on their public sector reform and service delivery programs. Jessica Collins is a Research Fellow in the Pacific Islands Program and Aus-PNG Network at the Lowy Institute. Her research interests cover foreign aid and development policy in Pacific Island nations (particularly for Pacific women), Pacific migration, remittance policy, and Myanmar's humanitarian and refugee challenges. Prior to joining the Institute, Jessica completed a PhD in Anthropology at the Queensland University of Technology. Jessica also holds a Master of Global Development from Griffith University. Her Honours research project, completed at the Queensland University of Technology, explored diasporic life for Samoans living in Brisbane, and her undergraduate studies at the University of Sydney focused on the anthropology of the Pacific.

Topic: Woman cut rope holding painters 26 floors high A resident of a high-rise condominium in Thailand cut the support rope for two painters, apparently angry she wasn't told they would be doing work, and left them hanging above the 26th floor. 泰國一棟高層公寓大廈的一名住戶,剪斷2名外牆油漆工的支撐繩索,讓他們懸吊在26樓高,顯然是對未被告知施工一事動怒。 The woman is facing attempted murder and property destruction charges, and could face a prison term up to 20 years. 該名女性住戶面臨蓄意謀殺和財物毀損罪名,可能被判囚20年。 One of the painters, a Myanmar national named Song, told the Thai media that he and his friends had lowered themselves from the 32nd floor to repair a crack on the building. 其中一名緬甸籍宋姓油漆工向泰國媒體表示,他和朋友從32樓垂降,準備修復大廈的裂痕。 When he reached the 30th floor, he felt that the rope was heavier and when he looked down, he saw someone on the 21st floor open a window and cut his rope. He tried asking for help from other units, but nobody was in. The third colleague continued to support them from the top floor until a couple rescued them. 到達30樓外後,他感到繩索變重,往下竟看到有人從21樓打開窗戶剪斷繩索。他試著向其他住戶求救,但沒人在家,第3名同事則持續從頂樓支撐著他們,直到一對夫婦救了他們。   Next Article   Thai chain's cannabis pizza: trendy but won't get you high 泰國連鎖餐廳的大麻披薩:夠時髦卻不會讓人飄飄然 One of Thailand's major fast food chains The Pizza Company has introduced "Crazy Happy Pizza", an under-the-radar product topped with a cannabis leaf. It's legal but won't get you high. 泰國大型連鎖餐廳之一「披薩公司」推出一款擺上一片大麻葉的低調新品「極樂披薩」,這是合法的產品,並不會讓人飄飄欲仙。 "It's just a marketing campaign. And you can taste the cannabis and then if you have enough, you may get a bit sleepy," said the general manager. 餐廳總經理說:「這只是行銷方式,可以讓人品嚐大麻,只是如果吃太飽,可能會有點想睡覺。」 The Crazy Happy Pizza is a mashup of toppings evoking the flavors of Thailand's famous Tom Yum Gai soup along with a deep-fried cannabis leaf on top. Cannabis is also infused into the cheese crust and there's chopped cannabis in the dipping sauce. A 9-inch pie costs only 499 baht. 「極樂披薩」混搭各種食材,使人聯想到泰國著名的酸辣蝦湯,上頭再放上一片酥炸的大麻葉。不僅起司餅皮填入大麻,沾醬也加入碎葉片。一塊9吋披薩僅售499泰銖(約463台幣)。 Thailand became the first country in Southeast Asia to remove specific parts and extracts of cannabis from its controlled narcotics list in December 2020, and later allowed them to be used in foods and beverages. 泰國在2020年12月成為首個將大麻特定部位和萃取物移出致幻毒品的東南亞國家,之後更允許在菜品或飲料中使用大麻。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1499658 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1503512   Next Article   Topic: Parched fields force Thailand to look beyond rice Thailand has long served as one of the globe's main rice bowls, but chronic water shortages are pushing the country to move away from a grain that dominates its fields and has defined a way of life for generations. 泰國向來是全球稻米主要供應國之一,但長期缺水讓這個國家無法再固守單一作物,必須為往後的世代定義新的生存方式。 Laddawan has spent the past forty years coaxing rice from her plot in central Thailand, but she is tired of watching her farmland squeezed dry by increasingly severe droughts. 過去40年來,拉德旺一直在泰國中部的自家土地上細心照料水稻,但嚴重的旱災持續蹂躪這片土地,此情此景已讓她感到厭倦。 "I plan to replace some rice paddies with limes," she told AFP after attending a government-run workshop urging farmers to diversify their crops. 在參加完一場由政府舉辦、鼓勵農夫種植不同作物的農作坊後,她告訴法新社記者:「我打算不種稻米,改種萊姆了。」 At a workshop held in Nonthaburi province near Bangkok, Laddawan was sold the seeds fruit trees. 拉德旺在曼谷附近暖武里省的一場農作坊上買到果樹種籽。 These alternatives will drastically reduce water consumption but also break the monoculture that has deteriorated Thai soil for decades. 這些替代方案將大幅縮減用水量,也將打破數十年來造成泰國土質惡化的單一作物栽培模式。 "We have no choice, we need to adapt," Laddawan said, explaining that she used to plant three rice crops annually, but next year will only have enough water for one. 拉德旺表示,她過去每年種植3次水稻,但水資源只夠在明年種1次,「我們沒有選擇,只能改變。」   Next Article   Topic: Thai hotel brews up coffee from elephant dung 泰國酒店從象糞中煮出咖啡 For those who like their coffee with a strong nose Thailand could be the ideal destination, after a blend made from elephant dung was put on sale by an upmarket hotel chain. 泰國一家高檔連鎖酒店販售象糞製作的咖啡後,對喜愛濃咖啡的人來說,泰國可能是個理想去處。 The Black Ivory blend, made from coffee beans digested and excreted by Thai elephants, is billed as producing a particularly smooth cup. 這種「黑色象牙」咖啡,是由泰國大象消化並排泄出來的咖啡豆製成,號稱味道特別溫和。 But it is not cheap, with Anantara Hotels saying the "naturally refined" coffee costs a staggering $1,100 per kilogram -- making it one of the most expensive blends in the world. 但象糞咖啡所費不貲,安娜塔拉酒店表示,這種「天然精釀」的咖啡豆每公斤要價讓人咋舌的1100美元,是世界最貴的咖啡之一。 "Research indicates that during digestion, the enzymes of the elephant break down coffee protein," the Thai-based hotel group said in a statement. 這家泰國酒店集團在聲明中說:「研究指出,在消化過程中,大象體內的酵素會分解咖啡豆裡的蛋白質。」   Next Article   Topic: The Price of Recycling Old Laptops: Toxic Fumes in Thailand's Lungs 婦女們蹲伏在一間燈光昏暗的工廠的地上,整理被現代世界棄置的一些內容物:電池、電路板和成綑的電線。 Crouched on the ground in a dimly lit factory, women picked through the discarded innards of the modern world: batteries, circuit boards and bundles of wires. 她們或者用鐵鎚,或者徒手,拆解這些被稱作有害電子廢棄物或電子垃圾的廢品,再由男性工人鏟進一台鏗鏘作響的機器,以回收有用的金屬。有些男工用碎布包住臉來隔擋煙塵。 They broke down the scrap — known as hazardous electronic-waste, or e-waste — with hammers and raw hands. Men, some with faces wrapped in rags to repel the fumes, shoveled the refuse into a clanking machine that salvages usable metal. 當他們賣力工作之時,煙霧飄散至鄰近的村莊和工廠,居民對煙霧中有什麼物質一無所知—塑膠?金屬?誰知道!他們只知道聞起來很臭,讓人惡心。 As they toiled, smoke spewed over nearby villages and farms. Residents have no idea what is in the smoke — plastic, metal, who knows? All they know is that it stinks and they feel sick. 這間名為「新天空金屬」的工廠,是東南亞正蓬勃發展的電子垃圾業的一部分,是在中國大陸決定停止接收毒害其土地人民的全球電子垃圾後,應運而生。泰國特別成為這項產業的中心,過程中社運人士大力阻擋,政府則在公共安全與可觀的收益之間謀取平衡。 The factory, New Sky Metal, is part of a thriving e-waste industry across Southeast Asia, born of China's decision to stop accepting the world's electronic refuse, which was poisoning its land and people. Thailand in particular has become a center of the industry even as activists push back and its government wrestles to balance competing interests of public safety with the profits to be made from the lucrative trade. 去年泰國禁止外國電子垃圾進口,然而環境監控人員和產業專家說,新工廠仍然在國內各地開設,處理成噸的電子垃圾。 Last year, Thailand banned the import of foreign e-waste. Yet new factories are opening across the country, and tons of e-waste are being processed, environmental monitors and industry experts said. 「電子垃圾必須有去處。」以反對將垃圾傾倒至窮國為訴求的「巴塞爾行動網路」執行長吉姆.帕其特說,「中國就是把整個作業搬到東南亞。」 “E-waste has to go somewhere,” said Jim Puckett, executive director of the Basel Action Network, which campaigns against trash dumping in poor countries, “and the Chinese are simply moving their entire operations to Southeast Asia.” 他說:「賺錢的唯一方法,是用便宜、非法的勞力處理極為龐大的數量,而且大肆汙染環境。」 “The only way to make money is to get huge volume with cheap, illegal labor and pollute the hell out of the environment,” he added. 根據聯合國的統計,全球每年製造出5000萬噸電子垃圾,消費者習慣了丟掉前一年的機型,入手新款式。 回收這些小電器的觀念聽起來道德高尚:科技便利的無限循環。 Each year, 50 million tons of e-waste are produced globally, according to the United Nations, as consumers grow accustomed to throwing away last year's model and acquiring the next new thing.The notion of recycling these gadgets sounds virtuous: an infinite loop of technological utility. 但是,從廢棄的手機、電腦和電視中採集微量的金銀銅之類貴金屬,其實是骯髒且危險的工作。 But it is dirty and dangerous work to extract the tiny quantities of precious metals — like gold, silver and copper — from castoff phones, computers and televisions. 曾經有許多年,中國大陸大量接收世界各地的電子廢棄物。然後在2018年,北京對外來電子垃圾關閉了大門。泰國和其他東南亞國家看到了機會,因為它們環境法律執行寬鬆,勞動力剝削容易,而且商界和政府間關係緊密。 For years, China took in much of the world's electronic refuse. Then in 2018, Beijing closed its borders to foreign e-waste. Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia — with their lax enforcement of environmental laws, easily exploited labor force and cozy nexus between business and government — saw an opportunity. 「每一片電路板和每一條電線都能讓你賺不少錢,特別是毋須考慮環境或勞工時。」環境監督組織「泰國生態警示復甦」領導人潘重.沙也譚說。 “Every circuit and every cable is very lucrative, especially if there is no concern for the environment or for workers,” said Penchom Saetang, head of Ecological Alert and Recovery Thailand, an environmental watchdog.

Rick Hanson on Becoming An Ally

While our recent episodes have focused on the reality in Myanmar, this show explores the condition of allies outside the country who support the democracy movement. Although free from physical harm and living in basic safety, many find that they shoulder a heavy emotional burden by immersing themselves so deeply in the struggles and trauma experienced every day by the people of Myanmar, even if from afar. Rick Hanson is a mindfulness practitioner “interested in bringing a kind of Mahayana spirit of foregrounding and appreciation of notions of emptiness and sort of the unconditioned ground of all, combined with the rigor and the clarity, and the precision and the moral foundations that we find in Theravada Buddhism and in early Buddhism altogether.” He is a Senior Fellow at UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center and founding the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, as well as a best-selling author, penning Buddha's Brain among other important works. Rick suggests several good practices to become more grounded even in the most difficult of situations. First, there is mindfulness, which he describes as the “capacity to witness your experiences, rather than being completely consumed by them, completely swept along and hijacked by them.” He notes that the Buddha taught about the importance of balancing compassion with equanimity, and how strengthening the latter is able to build up the former. The second is a “feeling of heart,” which Rick characterizes as a sense of connection with other people, or perhaps any living being, or even nature. Third is in developing a more expansive physical perspective, such as gazing at the horizon or sky, which helps bring us into the present neurologically, and dissolves self-preoccupation. And, Rick advises us to be on guard against negative concepts that can easily become embedded in heart and mind.  For example, we can avoid becoming engulfed in the agony of the moment by recognizing the good that still exists in the world. Rick recommends as well that activists seek camaraderie among themselves, creating a community of mutual support, as well as to consciously imbue a sense of meaning and purpose into one's efforts. He strongly urges activists to engage self-care, such as finding time to rest. “You can't do this stuff 24 hours a day. You need a break!”

Dr. Larry Gostin is a professor of global health law and the faculty director of the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University. Dr. Gostin joins Steve Morrison and Andrew Schwartz for this 134th episode in the aftermath of the April 18 nationwide injunction to block government mask mandates on public transportation. In Judge Mizelle's opinion, the C.D.C. has exceeded its legal authority. But if the C.D.C. doesn't have the power to make someone do something as unintrusive as wearing a mask, what can it do? If this ruling stands, it changes the role of the government, and our regulatory institutions will lose the power to protect us. The C.D.C. has been in a weakened position since the Trump administration but is staffed by strong scientists who want to do their best for Americans. Dr. Gostin argues for a High-Level Commission to take a top-down and bottom-up review of the C.D.C. to determine what systems, data, scientists, funding CDC needs, and what powers are legitimate. He does have hope: the U.S. is approaching higher levels of immunity, and the darkest days of the pandemic may be behind us.
