Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Dienstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Myanmar lässt auf Asean-Druck Tausende politische Gefangene frei Die Militärregierung Myanmars hat auf Druck des Verbands Südostasiatischer Nationen (ASEAN) mehr als 5600 politische Gefangene freigelassen. Unter ihnen befindet sich auch der Parteisprecher der bisherigen De-facto-Regierungschefin Aung San Suu Kyi. Nach Angaben von Menschenrechtlern werden aber noch mindestens 7000 weitere politische Gefangene festgehalten. General Min Aung Hlaing, der das südostasiatische Land seit dem Putsch am 1. Februar führt, war vom jüngsten ASEAN-Gipfel ausgeschlossen worden. Südkorea meldet erneuten Raketentest Nordkoreas Das nordkoreanische Militär hat nach Informationen Südkoreas erneut eine Rakete getestet. Das Projektil unbekannter Bauart sei in Richtung Japanisches Meer abgefeuert worden, heißt es. Der Abschuss der Rakete erfolgte, als in Seoul die Internationale Luftfahrt- und Verteidigungsmesse (ADEX) eröffnet wurde. Nordkorea, das wegen seines Atomwaffenprogramms internationalen Sanktionen unterworfen ist, hat im vergangenen Monat durch eine Reihe von Raketentests für Unruhe gesorgt. Unter anderem hatte das Land nach eigenen Angaben eine sogenannte Hyperschallrakete getestet. US-Sonderbeauftragter für Afghanistan tritt zurück Der nach der Machtübernahme der Taliban und dem chaotischen Abzug der US-Truppen aus Afghanistan in die Kritik geratene US-Sonderbeauftragte, Zalmay Khalilzad, tritt von seinem Posten zurück. Außenminister Antony Blinken ernannte den bisherigen Stellvertreter Thomas West zum neuen Afghanistan-Sondergesandten. Khalilzad hatte sich nach Ansicht seiner Kritiker zuschulden kommen lassen, das Weiße Haus schlecht beraten zu haben. Der in Masar-i-Scharif geborene Diplomat sollte eine Friedenslösung für Afghanistan finden, um einen geregelten US-Truppenabzug zu ermöglichen. US-Regierung zieht gegen Texas vor Supreme Court Das juristische Tauziehen um das seit Anfang September im Bundestaat Texas geltende weitgehende Verbot von Schwangerschaftsabbrüchen geht weiter. Das US-Justizministerium reichte beim Obersten Gericht in Washington einen Eilantrag ein, um das Anti-Abtreibungsgesetz per einstweiliger Verfügung zu blockieren. In dem beim Supreme Court eingereichten Antrag heißt es, das Gesetz, das Abtreibungen etwa ab der sechsten Schwangerschaftswoche verbietet, sei "eindeutig verfassungswidrig". Auch werde ein Grundsatzurteil aus den 1970er-Jahren umgangen, das Schwangerschaftsabbrüche zur Privatsache erkläre. Borrell: Nicaraguas Präsident hat Diktatur aufgebaut Nach Beratungen der EU-Außenminister hat der Außenbeauftragte der Union, Josep Borrell, Klartext zur Lage in Nicaragua gesprochen: Nach seiner Einschätzung habe Präsident Daniel Ortega eine der "schlimmsten Diktaturen der Welt" errichtet. Ortega und seine als Vizepräsidentin amtierende Frau Rosario Murillo nutzten ihre Macht, um die politische Opposition zu eliminieren und jeglichen Widerstand im Land zu unterdrücken, um sich den Sieg bei der im November anstehenden Wahl zu sichern. Die bevorstehenden Wahlen seien Fake-Wahlen. Der 75-jährige Ortega strebt seine vierte Amtszeit in Folge an. Spahn für Ende der "epidemischen Lage" Bundesgesundheitsminister Jens Spahn ist dafür, die sogenannte epidemische Lage nationaler Tragweite Ende November auslaufen zu lassen. Ein Sprecher bestätigte einen Bericht der "Bild"-Zeitung. Demnach sagte Spahn bei Beratungen mit seinen Länderkollegen, das Robert-Koch-Institut stufe das Risiko für Menschen mit Corona-Impfschutz als moderat ein. Man könne daher von einem "Ausnahmezustand" in einen "Zustand besonderer Vorsicht" kommen. Zugangsbeschränkungen sowie Abstands- und Hygieneregeln würden in Innenräumen weiter benötigt. Andere Maßnahmen könnten dagegen möglicherweise entfallen.

On COI #176, Kyle Anzalone discusses the so-called “Havana Syndrome.” Since 2017, the supposed ailment – which has so far not been proven to exist as its own discrete illness – has been invoked repeatedly by deep state and corporate media pundits to demonize US “adversaries.” The Havana Syndrome has no known cause, and its alleged symptoms range from migraines, dizziness, nausea and vertigo, among other symptoms common to countless other existing diseases and disorders. Initially, the Trump administration used the issue to roll back Obama's diplomatic gains with Cuba. As scientists increasingly suggested the Havana Syndrome could be psychosomatic – or largely a psychological problem rather than physical disease – the MSM spun the Trump administration's lack of interest by tying the narrative into the broader Russiagate craze. Now, the deep state and corporate press are deploying the unproven theory again to demonize Russia and China, suggesting they are somehow behind the mysterious syndrome. Kyle breaks down recent news about Facebook after the Intercept released the social media giant's ‘blacklist,' which includes some 4,000 groups and individuals deemed “Dangerous Individuals and Organizations” on the platform. Among the blacklisted figures were politicians, writers and various other people of influence. The list helps explain how Facebook suppresses independent reporting on the empire, ensuring certain voices are never heard while elevating others as go-to ‘experts.' Kyle updates recent missile tests by North Korea. As with many previous launches by Pyongyang, the corporate media treated the test-fire as an act of aggression and allowed subsequent coverage to retain the same framing. Washington's regular joint war games Seoul – effectively simulating an invasion of the north – as well as its own periodic weapons tests are seldom mentioned in mainstream coverage. Kyle argues that the US should meet North Korea's missile tests with diplomacy, noting that South Korean President Moon Jae-in – a vocal proponent for improved inter-Korean ties – is giving Biden an ideal opportunity as he continues to push for an official end to the Korean War, which is formally still underway despite an armistice pact signed in 1953.

(Koo Hee-jin) In-Depth News Analysis: South Korea's high inheritance tax system has been under the spotlight again, after it was revealed last week that the Samsung Group family plan to sell 2 trillion won in shares of group affiliates to help pay off their 12 trillion won inheritance tax bill. Critics of the tax, the second highest among OECD countries, have said that it’s too high, and finance minister Hong Nam-ki said last week that the government is planning to reform the system. Professor Park Sang-in from Seoul National University’s Graduate School of Public Administration joins us on the line to discuss the issue. Korea Trending with Jung Ye-won: 1.

"Embrace it", "there's always a tomorrow" as hosts Bobby and Kristina discuss 2004's Dracula, The Musical and 2006's Lestat on episode eighteen of My Favorite Flop. ABOUT DRACULA, THE MUSICAL Based on the Victorian novel by Bram Stoker, Dracula, The Musical tells the story of the famed vampire as he lusts for new blood. Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray fall victim to Dracula's unnatural charm and, along with Doctor Van Helsing, must fight Dracula's supernatural powers. The musical features music by Frank Wildhorn and book and lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black. Following a record-breaking run at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2001, the musical finally opened on Broadway to mostly negative reviews 3 years later in 2004. Though this production was intended as a serious, dramatic interpretation of the source material, critics complained of a complete lack of emotion in general, and of suspense and horror in particular. Also, while the plot of the musical hits all the major points of Stoker's novel, critics felt it did so in such an obtuse way that audience members unfamiliar with the story may find themselves unable to comprehend the action. Despite failing on Broadway, the musical has gone on to become extremely popular throughout Europe and Asia. The musical made its international debut at Theater St. Gallen, Switzerland in 2005, with notable productions following in the UK, Tokyo, and Seoul. Original Broadway Cast Melissa Errico as Mina Murray Tom Hewitt as Dracula Stephen McKinley Henderson as Abraham Van Helsing Chris Hoch as Arthur Holmwood Kelli O'Hara as Lucy Westenra Darren Ritchie as Jonathan Harker Bart Shatto as Quincey Morris Don Stephenson as Renfield Shonn Wiley as Jack Seward Lena Hall as Second Vampire Melissa Fagan as Third Vampire Jenifer Foote as First Vampire Michael Herwitz as Child Pamela Jordan as Third Vampire (Alternate) Elizabeth Loyacano as Second Vampire (Alternate) Tracy Miller as First Vampire (Alternate) Matthew Nardozzi as Child (Alternate) Graham Rowat as Ensemble ABOUT LESTAT Inspired by three of the novels in Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles, Lestat tells the story of a man who escapes the tyranny of his oppressive family only to have his life taken from him by the vampire, Magnus. The musical features music by Elton John, lyrics by Bernie Taupin, and a book by Linda Woolverton. Officially the highest-earning pre-Broadway play in San Francisco history (beating out Wicked AND Cats), Lestat finally opened on Broadway at the Palace Theater on March 25, 2006 after a series of drastic revisions. Reviews of the Broadway production were uniformly negative. Ben Brantley famously described the show as a "musical sleeping pill" and Peter Marks of the Washington Post remarked that apparently "a gay vampire with a two-octave range can be just as dull as a straight one." The musical closed on May 28, 2006, after 33 previews and 39 performances. An Original Broadway Cast Recording was recorded by Mercury Records a week earlier, however, after the show's closing, Elton John's management stated "there are no plans to release the recording..." Lestat has not been seen again (at least officially) since its original run. Original Off-Broadway Cast Hugh Panaro as Lestat Carolee Carmello as Gabrielle Allison Fischer as Claudia Michael Genet as Marius Roderick Hill as Nicolas Drew Sarich as Armand Jim Stanek as Louis Rachel Coloff as Ensemble Nikki Renée Daniels as Eleni Joseph Dellger as Magnus Colleen Fitzpatrick as Ensemble Patrick Mellen as Ensemble Chris Peluso as Ensemble Dominique Plaisant as Ensemble Megan Reinking as Beautiful Woman Will Swenson as Marquis/Laurent Tommar Wilson as Ensemble
In this episode, Caro Fowler (Starr Director of the Research and Academic Program at the Clark Art Institute) speaks with Joan Kee, professor of art history at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Joan describes the influence of growing up in Seoul, Korea, but shares her uneasiness with centering a sense of self within art historical writing. She reflects on modes of description and their political resonances, and muses about the specific strengths and limitations of art history, particularly when it comes to categories like “global contemporary” or an assumption of a unified “we” within the discipline. Finally, she shares current projects, including one on Black and Asian artistic intersections from the early 1960s to the present.

For transracial adoptees and people of colour, the past 18 months have felt like an emotional gauntlet. At least, they have for us. From the murder of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, which saw a surge of the Black Lives Matter movement, to rising anti-Asian racism and the Atlanta shootings, to the disparate impacts of COVID-19 due to systemic racism and chronic underfunding in public health, there's been a lot to reckon with. To keep educating ourselves, and in the hopes of continuing and deepening some of our earlier conversations on race and the fight for racial justice, we reached out to our friend, Korean American adoptee Rebecca Kinney. Rebecca is an Associate Professor in the School of Cultural and Critical Studies and American Culture Studies at Bowling Green State University, Ohio. She is the author of numerous articles and the book Beautiful Wasteland: The Rise of Detroit as America's Postindustrial Frontier (University of Minnesota Press, 2016). She is a Fulbright Scholar Korea (2021-2022) and currently lives in Seoul. This is a thought-provoking, in-depth conversation that traverses the historical, personal, and political. First, she starts with a 20-minute primer on Asian American racial formation and settler colonialism - kind of like an audio lecture. Then Rebecca talks about finding her own ethnic identity as a Korean adoptee from the white working class suburbs of Detroit, before we discuss the barriers to solidarity amongst Asian Americans and POCs, and how we might confront anti-black racism as Asian adoptees. Finally, Rebecca talks about living in Korea and her current Fulbright research, before we end with an extended random question segment. We learned a lot from Rebecca and we hope you do too.

In any list of influential tech powers in the world, South Korea would undoubtedly be near the top. In this episode we delve into how the country achieved this status, transforming the nature of its economy and producing global industry leaders like Samsung and LG Electronics. But we'll also look to the future, and at how South Korea is working with the international community to build up the world's tech infrastructure. How is Seoul cooperating with other regions and countries when it comes to issues such as regulating the internet? How are issues of data collection and privacy being received in Korean society? Like most globally connected powers, South Korea is also highly attuned to the risk of cyber attacks - particularly given its volatile neighbour North Korea. We are delighted to have Dr Michael Reiterer, former EU ambassador to Korea, and now the distinguished professor for international security and diplomacy at the Institute for European Studies in Brussels, on the show. He has specialized in the EU's relations with Korea and Japan during his career, particularly in the security realm. Also joining us is Dr Robyn Klingler-Vidra, a reader in International Political Economy at King's College, London, whose research has focused on how east and southeast nations have developed their tech sectors. For this episode, we are once again partnering with the Centre for Security, Diplomacy and Strategy at the Brussels School of Governance.
Hello to you listening in Seoul, Korea!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.My friend and writing colleague Sue Heatherington - The Quiet Disruptor - offers a daily blog of writing, poetry and photography observing the ordinary things: spider webs, dew drops on a blade of grass, lichen on a tree trunk, and more.Aware of the ordinary things I might encounter as I walk the roads and shorelines here I take care to watch and listen: a ghost fawn with its mother slipping out of view, a juvenile coyote nose lifted head turned to the sound of my feet, flocks of birds circling off to the warmer south, fallen leaves moldering, and the occasional sand dollar left whole and intact in the retreating tide.Pema Chodrin says, “Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior's world.”Question: What complaint have you exchanged for everyday good fortune? This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories - stay for the magic.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Montag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Koreanische Staaten kommunizieren wieder Nach wochenlanger Unterbrechung haben Nord- und Südkorea ihre direkten Verbindungskanäle wiederhergestellt. Die Leitungen seien geöffnet, teilte eine Sprecherin des Vereinigungsministeriums in Seoul mit. Der Schritt sei ein Versuch, "dauerhaften Frieden" auf der koreanischen Halbinsel zu schaffen, meldete die nordkoreanische Nachrichtenagentur KCNA. Die speziellen Telefon- und Faxleitungen bilden die Grundlage für die Verständigung beider Staaten, die sich offiziell noch immer im Kriegszustand befinden. Nord- und Südkorea unterhalten keine Botschaft im jeweils anderen Land. Japanisches Parlament wählt neuen Premier In Japan ist der frühere Außenminister Fumio Kishida zum neuen Regierungschef gewählt worden. Die Abgeordneten im von der liberaldemokratischen Regierungspartei LDP dominierten Unterhaus stimmten erwartungsgemäß für die Amtseinführung des 64-Jährigen.

Bennett beklagt Gewalt unter israelischen Arabern Israels Regierungschef Naftali Bennett will verstärkt gegen Gewalt innerhalb der arabischen Gesellschaft im Land vorgehen. Das Problem habe "ungeheuerliche Ausmaße" angenommen, es sei jahrelang marginalisiert und vernachlässigt worden, erklärte Bennett. Seit Jahresbeginn sind rund 100 israelische Araber ermordet worden, häufig als Teil von Bandenkriegen. Der Staat wolle seine arabischen Bürger vor Verbrechen und illegalen Waffen, Mord und Schutzgelderpressung schützen, sagte Bennett. Die arabischen Bürger müssten verstehen, dass die Sicherheitskräfte nicht der Feind, sondern die Lösung seien.

Having been named by Sports Illustrated as the Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th Century, Jackie Joyner-Kersee's athletic credentials are unquestionably amongst the best ever in all of sporting history. A six-time Olympic medalist, including three Olympic gold medals, Joyner-Kersee dominated the Olympic heptathlon and long-jump events throughout her career which spanned four Olympic Games. Astonishingly, despite the advancements in technology and training used by athletes around the world over the last two decades, she still holds the World Heptathlon Record she set over 20 years ago at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea. In addition to her remarkable accomplishments on the field of competition, Joyner-Kersee has defined her post-athletic career as a philanthropist, a dynamic public speaker, and a tireless advocate for children's education, health issues, racial equality, social reform, and women's rights. In 1988, she established the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation as the vehicle through which she provides youth, adults and families with the resources to improve their quality of life.

On today's show I share my conversation with Therese Shechter, award-winning filmmaker and writer, and the founder of the feminist production company Trixie Films. Her work fuses humor, activism, and personal storytelling to disrupt what's considered most sacred about womanhood. She is a Canada Council for the Arts grantee for her documentary My So-Called Selfish Life which is having its World Premier this week at the Woodstock Film Festival. The film examines what it means to say no to motherhood in a society that assumes all women want children, and exposes what's at stake when women are denied the right to control their own reproductive lives. It is the third part of a trilogy which includes her films “How To Lose Your Virginity” (2013) and “I Was A Teenage Feminist” (2005). These documentaries have screened from Rio de Janeiro to Istanbul to Seoul, and her work is in the collections of over 300 universities, non-profits, and libraries.

Born in Seoul, Korea, raised in New Zealand (climbing trees, chasing sheep), to later settling, working in New York, she is a living embodiment of multi-culture.

It doesn't mean you're not changing. no matter how hard you try, you may never truly “fit in” (like me trying to be more Korean. I tried!) that's okay, cause we are all unique individuals we can only know things in hindsight the things that lead us to be who we are today it seems hard at the time, like maybe now, but looking back you'll most likely be better off The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle! trying to reconcile our form and racial identity with the pure consciousness that we are @Cheska's Insta@ChescafeHer StorySupport the show (http://maimtime.com/support)
Leveraging Virtual Data Rooms and Title Registry for Crypto Adoption, and Accounts from the PayPal Wars with Eric Jackson at TransitNet Eric M. Jackson Early-PayPal. Technology Executive and Serial Entrepreneur. Author of “The PayPal Wars.” Eric M. Jackson is a technology executive who played a critical role in building PayPal and subsequently created multiple successful businesses. An award-winning author and sought-after speaker, Jackson is part of the so-called PayPal Mafia that went on to found and develop some of the world's top technology companies. Early in his career, after a brief stint as a financial consultant, Jackson was recruited by Peter Thiel to join the startup team at PayPal. There he served as PayPal's first head of U.S. marketing and oversaw its initial product marketing efforts. At a critical moment when the young company was bleeding millions of dollars each month, Jackson was placed in charge of developing and implementing PayPal's transaction-based revenue model, which helped turn around its fortunes and lead it to profitability. During Jackson's time at PayPal, the company grew from 2,500 users to 25 million, went public, and was acquired by eBay. Currently, Jackson is the CEO and co-founder of CapLinked, a venture-backed technology company that develops cloud-based information control software. Dubbed the “go-to place for setting up and closing deals” by the Wall Street Journal, CapLinked's diverse list of global clients include Amazon, Ernst & Young, FTI Consulting, Roche, Founders Fund, Hess, KPMG, Takeda, and many others. Jackson is also the co-founder of TransitNet, a fintech company that provides tools to assist with title verification for cryptocurrencies. The company's title registry service allows parties to generate a trusted third-party record of ownership for crypto wallets. Additionally, following his time at PayPal, Jackson founded a venture called World Ahead Media, which he grew to profitability before it was acquired. He also served on the boards of a number of organizations and technology startups, including CritiqueIt, Inc., a collaboration software company that was acquired in 2018 by 2U, Inc. (Nasdaq: TWOU). His book, The PayPal Wars, which chronicles the tumultuous origins of PayPal, won the Writers Notes Book Award and was hailed by Tom Peters as “the best description of business strategy unfolding in a world changing at warp speed.” A frequent commentator on technology and policy, Jackson has appeared on Bloomberg, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC, and he has been quoted in publications ranging from The Economist to the New York Times. Jackson has spoken at conferences around the world, including the World Knowledge Forum in Seoul, the Lang Di Fintech Conference in Shanghai, and the inaugural Reboot Conference in San Francisco. He also served as the keynote speaker at events hosted by the Cato Institute, the Reason Foundation, and the National Federation of Republican Assemblies. Jackson graduated with honors from Stanford University, where he was editor-in-chief of The Stanford Review, studied overseas in Moscow, and served as a student representative on the university's Board of Trustees. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter.

In this episode of the Disputers for Good podcast, I speak with Alex Stephany, the founder of Beam, on solving homelessness using crowdfunding technology at scale.Beam is a crowdfunding platform that enables new career opportunities for homeless men and women. Beam uses technology and global citizens to help fund skills training and education to homeless individuals. With the Beam platform, you can help someone start a new career and leave homelessness for good.The platform works like this. Each person on the platform is referred to Beam by an established homeless charity or their local council. They receive a dedicated support specialist - a Beam employee who supports them all the way into their new career! The support specialists conduct basic security checks to make sure the referred person is mentally and physically ready to enter full-time employment. After that they help each person develop a tailored career plan, building on their unique strengths and interests.Once approved to be on the Beam platform, we as global citizens, can choose to help fund one person's training or fund everyone equally. You can choose support once or monthly. You'll get an email introducing you to a new person you're supporting every month and learn more about their individual storyThe founder of Beam, Alex Stephany, was inspired to build Beam after getting to know a homeless man at his local Tube station in London. The man had spent decades out of work. Alex would buy him cups of coffee and pairs of socks, but could see his condition going from very bad to even worse.When the man had a heart attack, Alex asked himself: “What could we do to make a real difference to that man's life?” The answer lay in giving him the skills to support himself. Alex knew that'd cost much more than a coffee. But what if everyone chipped in?Before Beam, Alex ran the parking app, JustPark, which he grew from 2 to over 40 people and still support as a Board Advisor. At JustPark, he had his first experience with crowdfunding when he led a record-breaking equity crowdfunding round - what was the largest crowdfunding round for a startup in history.He is also the author of a book on the sharing economy called The Business of Sharing, and also advised the city of Seoul as part of the Mayor's Sharing Economy Advisory Panel.Watch his TED Talk here.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Check out:Partner with us - Learn moreImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with Webflow

Krysta offers mindset tips all along the journey, and she shares with us her favorite way to process both the good and the bad so that she can keep coming back stronger. Krysta begins with her unique journey in sports, and reflects on coming back stronger from her recurring injuries, as well as how she ultimately found diving at the age of 20. She talks about transitioning her skills from trampoline to diving, working with her coach, Jianli You, to change certain habits, and entering the 2016 Olympic Team Trials following her graduation from the University of Nevada. Krysta tells Laura about a training trip to China that served as a turning point in her path to becoming an Olympian, as well as how her own experience as a coach has helped her as an athlete, and what she learned from competing in the 2017 and 2019 World Championships (her first international meet). She explains how her mindset to learn and grow from setbacks has helped her through the pandemic, and shares the moving story of receiving her Olympic ring from Laura.

Episode Highlights: Krysta's journey in sports, beginning with gymnastics and trampoline at a young age Coming back stronger from her heartbreaking injuries and finding diving at the age of 20 Transitioning her skills from trampoline to diving, changing certain habits, learning new dives on the fast track Entering the 2016 Olympic Team Trials following her graduation from the University of Nevada Her training trip to China in 2016, and how it brought her closer to becoming an Olympian The difference between platform and springboard diving, and Krysta's transition from platform to springboard Supporting her athletic training after college through coaching, and how this has helped her become a better athlete Her experience at the World Championships in 2017 and 2019 Learning and growing the most from disappointments or poor competitions How this mentality helped her make the most of trials and tribulations brought on by the pandemic Training through injuries and her family's support throughout her career Krysta's very special memory of receiving her Olympic ring from Laura Her unique experience at the Tokyo Olympics The importance of Krysta's faith The surreal and exciting experience of realizing she had medaled in Tokyo How Krysta continues to process her accomplishment and what the next season of her life looks like Continuing her education and studying toward an MBA Quotes: “At the age of five, when I was young, I really really had this lifelong dream of being an Olympian one day.” “You're always having to use your visual awareness to spot where you are. And make changes based on where you are. So I learned that through trampoline, and that actually really progressed well into my diving career.” “I've had two big struggles in learning how to make a proper entry. And also learning how to get the rhythm and the timing with the springboard, because also trampoline is very quick - quick twitch muscle work.” “I competed platform in the 2016 Olympic Trials because we weren't quite there yet with springboard. And my coach had always said, Give it time. Because springboard diving...you need time to develop the skill of it.” “I came into the team mid-semester, so in January. And I had to learn all my springboard dives for 1-meter/3-meter before Conference in February.” “I think the biggest thing was just trusting my coach [Jianli You], because I knew that she has the knowledge and the skill to teach me, whatever it is. I'm learning and I have the talent to try it. And it only takes me trying it to learn something new.” “That was the trip that made me stronger as a diver and as a person.” “I really gained a whole other level of respect for my coach at that time, because I really saw how respected she is amongst all the Chinese coaches and athletes.” “For me, it really made me appreciate my sport and my country and our freedom to choose to be able to do sports.” “I think that was the biggest takeaway for me from the trials is just feeling like I fit in. But I know that there's still more in me and I still need to learn more in order to get to that point.” “We really did take a step back from platform at that time. Then springboard started to pick up, and I was competing in it at all the Nationals and getting better and better.” “The springboard is very similar to trampoline, and I can do a lot of the same skills that I would typically do on a trampoline as well.” “I was coaching our club team. And that's really the majority of where I got money in order to survive and make a living. And so I was starting to see things from a coaching perspective, which actually helped me as an athlete as well.” “That's been a big learning lesson as I transition from a college athlete to now a professional athlete, is just to really pay attention to everything that surrounds me as an athlete, and what's going to help me achieve my dream.” “My first ever international competition was the World Championships in 2017.” “Coming back from that competition, I really had done a lot of processing and journaling, writing things down of what went wrong. What I learned was my mentality going into this event - I really learned that I had put a lot of pressure on myself. And nobody else did that. I was the one that did it to myself.” “I really needed to learn from that. And not necessarily get dragged down by the failure of it. But stepping into, kind of, that failure and learning from it, and then growing from it, and taking the next step into the next chapter, and facing what happened… These competitions were actually the ones that I've learned and grown the most from.” “I think my mentality through all my injuries really helped me through the pandemic, because it was really, Be stronger than you were before the injury. And coming into the pandemic, I could see it two different ways - I could see it as a disappointment and as a setback. Or I could see it as an opportunity and an area to grow, and another year of training, which is really beneficial for me because I'm still a new diver.” “I really chose to look at it that way and took that mentality from the injury standpoint and said, Hey, I'm going to be stronger than I was before the pandemic.” “For me, it's a performance. I love getting out there and just showing off what I love to do.” “That was just a beautiful, beautiful moment for me to receive [my Olympic ring] from you. And you're telling the story - I'm still getting chills because it's special for me.” “For me, what keeps me grounded is reading the Bible and getting my time with God.” “At that point, [Coach Jianli You] knew that I had medaled.
