Inflation and supply chain issues continue to drive up prices for Americans and agriculture is a sector that has been particularly hard hit. U.S. farmers growing many of the grocery store staples are being hit with higher costs for fuel, fertilizer, and chemicals. All of these costs are complicating business for farmers across the country while pushing American grocery bills up nearly 10 percent since last year. Danny Hicks manages his family's Sunnycrest Farm in Londonderry, New Hampshire. He joins the Rundown to explain how high prices for fuel, chemicals and fertilizers are making it difficult for him and fellow farmers to break even operating their business and why a recession poses an existential threat to the survival of smaller farms.   Last Saturday, an 18-year-old gunman opened fire in a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, carrying out a racially motivated attack that killed ten people and left three others injured, most of which were Black. Another mass shooting took place in Laguna Woods, California. A Chinese citizen opened fire in that attack targeting Taiwanese people, killing one and wounding five others. These attacks are the most recent forms of racially motivated violence as a rise in hate crime incidents has been recorded so far in 2022. Scott Shepherd was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan. He joins the Rundown to discuss how his abusive upbringing led him down that path, how he abandoned his hateful and racist ideology, and why he believes hate crimes are still so persistent in the U.S.   Plus, commentary by Democratic strategist and former Biden campaign surrogate Kevin Walling.  *|* Learn more about your ad choices.

Ethnic-hatred is nothing new. The wars of the nations are often based in this, whether it be Chinese, Taiwanese, Whites in America, or Hutus in Rwanda. Immigrants are often discipled by communists and Democrats, but the international flood into the nations offers better opportunities for Jesus's people to disciple the nations. We also discuss whether Western civilization will be saved by keeping immigrants out, or by humility and repentance before God among these Western nations.----This program includes-----1.

The suspect in the Taiwanese church shooting in Orange County was charged with first degree murder for what authorities say was a politically motivated act of hate. Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, President Biden met with families that have been torn apart by the mass shooting in a Black neighborhood supermarket in Buffalo. Another week, another spate of horrific mass murders. These last two seemingly motivated by political hatred and, in the case of the Buffalo shooting, racism. Is there anything America can do to bring an end to the world's worst rate of mass shootings, far beyond anything that happens in any other developed country, let alone, one of the richest in the world? As usual, we are hearing somber words from lawmakers, thoughts and prayers for the most part, and calls for renewed legislation to control guns and reduce gun violence. However, it's not likely any meaningful action will result, given the gridlock in Congress and the NRA's firm grip on the Republican Party. Many Californian political leaders have all called for more to be done to fight domestic terrorism, but what that really looks like, remains to be seen.  For more, KCBS Radio news anchors Patti Reising and Jeff Bell, spoke with  KCBS Radio political reporter and host of this segment, Doug Sovern.

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:   Taiwan's Employment Gold Card program has come up in several past episodes of Talking Taiwan. I've been wanting to bring someone on to talk about what it is, who might be eligible for it and how to apply for it. In this episode I spoke with Michael Fahey, an American lawyer who's lived in Taiwan for 30 years. He worked with the Taiwan National Development Council on Taiwan's Gold Card program. Michael is co-founder of Forward Taiwan, an organization founded to improve Taiwan's immigration laws as they pertain to foreign professionals.     Here's a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:   How people may consider Taiwan small but with its population of 23 million people it could be compared to one of the U.S.'s largest states or a mid-sized European country What is the Taiwan Gold Card How the Taiwan Employment Gold Card is a four-in-one card: visa, work permit, resident permit, and re-entry permit, that is valid for three years After three years Gold Card holders who have been in Taiwan for an average of 183 days can apply for permanent residency in Taiwan How there was an increase in Gold Cards issued during the pandemic The government of Taiwan's goal of getting to 10,000 Gold Cards issued by the end of the year and a long-term goal of having 100,000 foreign professionals in Taiwan by 2030 How to apply for a Gold Card The eight fields that people can apply to in order to obtain a Gold Card The special category of consultation for those who don't fit in to any of the eight fields What documentation needs to be provided in order to apply for a Gold Card The importance of providing objective evidence of your professional accomplishments (e.g. an award, a measurable accomplishment) 60% of Gold Card holders have qualified by meeting the salary qualification in the economy field The type of work that Gold Card holders can seek while in Taiwan Singapore's Employment Pass program and the backlash it's gotten from Singaporean citizens Recent changes to the Gold Card program including the requirement for applying for permanent residence was lowered from five years to three years and different tax incentives Changes to ordinary work permit requirements which previously required both a college degree and two years of related experience The American Chamber of Commerce Taiwan Business Topics publication Useful resources for people applying for a Gold Card including: the Taiwan National Development Council's website Foreign Talent, the Taiwan Employment Gold Card Office Help Desk, Taiwan EZ Permit The challenges faced by some Gold Card holders in finding employment in Taiwan It's not necessary to speak Chinese to live and work in Taiwan If there is something missing or incomplete with a Gold Card application, you will have 30 days to rectify it Currently Gold Card applications are taking 4-6 weeks to get approved What happens if someone's application for the Gold Card is not accepted The most competitive sub field under arts and culture is popular music/TV/movies Special considerations for people wanting to live and work in Taiwan Considering places to live in Taiwan other than Taipei Michael's work with Forward Taiwan How Forward Taiwan is working on access to dual nationality for people naturalizing as Taiwanese citizens How Michael is transitioning to working on migrant workers issues The most meaningful accomplishments of Forward Taiwan: an increased number of countries that Taiwan has working holiday agreements with, making it easier for graduates of Taiwanese universities to stay and live and work in Taiwan How the National Development Council came up with Taiwan's Gold Card program and modeled it after Singapore's Employment Pass program Taiwan's independent artist work permit   Related Links: To view all related links for this article, click link below: https://talkingtaiwan.com/michael-fahey-of-forward-taiwan-talks-about-the-gold-card-program-ep-182/

In this final episode of Season 2, Dr. David Tom Cooke interviews Dr. Ed Chen from Duke University in North Carolina. Described as an experienced leader with “exceptional maturity” and a reputation for “respectful and thoughtful engagement,” Dr. Chen generously shares his personal experiences and insight. While he is Taiwanese, Dr. Chen was born in Tokyo (where his parents were attending university), moved to Taiwan, and eventually landed in the US. His hometown? Athens, Georgia, he said, while sharing that he is a die-hard fan of University of Georgia football. Importantly, Dr. Chen explains that he is a “better person and surgeon” because he was able to travel and have different global experiences. Even as a young boy, he knew his future was in medicine. “I remember being fascinated with the circulatory system which was featured on this TV special called ‘The Body Human.'” In fact, his younger brother also became a surgeon. Dr. Chen credits good mentors with encouraging him to become a cardiothoracic surgeon. He attended Duke University School of Medicine, and 30+ years later, he has returned to Duke to lead cardiovascular and thoracic surgery. According to Dr. Chen, cardiothoracic surgery is thriving, but the specialty also is challenged by complex patients, changing training paradigms, and limited resources. “In order to survive as a specialty, we must be resilient, flexible, and collaborative—all while remaining committed to the patients and our learners,” he advises. Don't miss the stories, experiences, and valuable advice from this leading light in cardiothoracic surgery.

It is the late twenty-first century, and Momo is the most celebrated dermal care technician in all of T City. Humanity has migrated to domes at the bottom of the sea to escape devastating climate change. The world is dominated by powerful media conglomerates and runs on exploited cyborg labor. Momo prefers to keep to herself, and anyway she's too busy for other relationships: her clients include some of the city's best-known media personalities. But after meeting her estranged mother, she begins to explore her true identity, a journey that leads to questioning the bounds of gender, memory, self, and reality. First published in Taiwan in 1995, The Membranes is a classic of queer speculative fiction in Chinese. Chi Ta-wei weaves dystopian tropes—heirloom animals, radiation-proof combat drones, sinister surveillance technologies—into a sensitive portrait of one young woman's quest for self-understanding. Predicting everything from fitness tracking to social media saturation, this visionary and sublime novel stands out for its queer and trans themes. The Membranes reveals the diversity and originality of contemporary speculative fiction in Chinese, exploring gender and sexuality, technological domination, and regimes of capital, all while applying an unflinching self-reflexivity to the reader's own role. Ari Larissa Heinrich's translation brings Chi's hybrid punk sensibility to all readers interested in books that test the limits of where speculative fiction can go. Chi Ta-wei is a renowned writer and scholar from Taiwan. Chi's scholarly work focuses on LGBT studies, disability studies, and Sinophone literary history, while his award-winning creative writing ranges from science fiction to queer short stories.

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin: Paolo Lising shares his knowledge on starting a business in Taiwan. In February, I did a follow up interview with Paolo Lising, who I've had on as a guest previously along with Ramon Ray in episode 168, which was about solopreneurship. Paolo is the author of Startup Taiwan: Foreigners Business Guide, and the founder of MillionDC.com. Startup Taiwan is the second book written to help foreigners wanting to start a business in Taiwan after How to Start a Business in Taiwan, which was written by Elias Ek in 2013. Elias has also been a guest on Talking Taiwan.   I spoke in depth with Paolo about his early interest in entrepreneurship, what brought him to Taiwan, and how he transitioned from journalism to corporate life and the startup scene. We had an in-depth conversation about what went into his book Startup Taiwan. For those wanting the most up-to-date information they should subscribe to a digital version of Startup Taiwan, which Paolo regularly updates on his website StartupInTaiwan.com. He also has a podcast by the same name Startup Taiwan, that I'd recommend you check out.   Here's a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:   Paolo's background and upbringing Paolo's career as a journalist covering the Philippines energy sector and banking When and how Paolo became an entrepreneur Paolo's first business, which was an antique shop in the Philippines How Paolo decided to go from being a journalist to pursing an MBA How Paolo decided to go Taiwan to purse an MBA degree How the MBA program at NTU (National Taiwan University) is taught in English Paolo worked at ASUS and Rayliant Global Advisors in Taiwan before getting into the startup scene Paolo's current startup in Taiwan, MillionDC.com, which is a learning platform for entrepreneurs from developing countries The special needs of entrepreneurs from developing countries Where the name MillionDC comes from How his bosses at ASUS and Rayliant Global Advisors were supportive of Paolo's interest in starting his own company on his own time outside of his work hours How one of the problems for people in the Philippines is having stable internet connection and access to information What led Paolo to write Startup Taiwan How to Start a Business in Taiwanby Elias Ek How so much has changed since 2013 when How to Start a Business in Taiwanby Elias Ek was published and Paolo felt a need to write a book with up dated information How Taiwan has changed it policies towards accepting foreigners and allowing them to open up businesses The two ways that foreigners can enter Taiwan and start a business: entrepreneur visa and Gold Card visa The requirements for an entrepreneur visa include submitting a plan of what you will to do in Taiwan, and the growth potential of your business Incubators in Taiwan and the support they provide to entrepreneurs The Gold Card visa is for those with expertise in their fields, similar to an APRC (lien Permanent Resident Certificate) The requirements for a Gold Card The process of writing and doing research for Paolo's book, Startup Taiwan There are six steps to starting a business in Taiwan How Paolo's book includes interviews with entrepreneurs and case studies The KPIs (key performance indicator) for grants given by the government of Taiwan The difference and added value of Paolo's book, Startup Taiwan compared to Elias' book, How to Start a Business in Taiwan How the interviews in Paolo's book, Startup Taiwan offer some real life examples of what people go through in the process of trying to start a business in Taiwan How Taiwan is in general very technologically advanced, but its banking system is not Why there aren't many venture capitalists setting up in Taiwan How a chop aka seal aka stamp is still commonly used by Taiwan's banks as form of identification The inspiration behind the book cover art for Startup Taiwan The challenges that Paolo has experienced in doing business in Taiwan Common misperceptions that people have about Taiwan or doing business in Taiwan If any of the case studies from the book Startup Taiwanhave been translated into Chinese How Audrey Tang, Taiwan's digital minister has received a copy of the book and thought the recommendations were helpful informing policies to make Taiwan a startup hub in Asia How Paolo wanted the first version of the print version of Startup Taiwanto look like a coffee table art book with grey paper vs. white or off-white How there are three versions of the book, Startup Taiwan 1)the print book released in 2020, 2) the online version available at StartupInTaiwan.com which is regularly updated 3) the 2022 version which is available on Amazon Kindle and print (updated up to January 31, 2022)   If you go to StartupInTaiwan.com you can get a digital version of the book with real time updates based on current events and news How it is more challenging for foreign entrepreneurs in Taiwan to get access to funding than local Taiwanese entrepreneurs How helpful it is for startups in Taiwan to have at Taiwanese co-founder How Startup Taiwan includes both failed and successful case studies How Taiwan is a welcoming place for foreigners How foreigners need to do research to make sure they are prepared with realistic expectations before coming to Taiwan 9 out of 10 startups in Taiwan fail What opportunities there are for people who want to do business with Taiwan rather than to do business in Taiwan   Related Links: To view all related links for this article, click link below: https://talkingtaiwan.com/paolo-lising-startup-taiwan-author-shares-his-knowledge-on-starting-a-business-in-taiwan-ep-180/

James Kynge, the FT's global China editor, looks into the unintended consequences of the race for semiconductor dominance. We hear from Chad Duffy, a Taipei-based cybersecurity expert who helped uncover a major hack on Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturers. James talks to Dan Wang, an analyst with the Shanghai-based Gavekal Dragonomics, about China's chip strategy, and Stephen Orlins, a rare dissenting voice in Washington who questions the efficacy of a US blacklist of Chinese tech companies desperate for US-designed chips. Plus, Annie Ting-Fang and Lauly Li, who cover the semiconductor industry for Nikkei Asia, give us the inside track on how China has been scooping up Taiwanese semiconductor engineers.Check out stories and up-to-the-minute news from the FT's technology team at ft.com/technologyFor a special discounted FT subscription go to https://www.ft.com/techtonicsaleAnd check out FT Edit, the new iPhone app that shares the best of FT journalism, hand-picked by senior editors to inform, explain and surprise.
