    ‘The Way You Look (at me) Tonight’ Trailer

    October 22, 2019


    Claire: Hi, how are you doing? Good… [inaudible] Claire: This score we called peripheral fluctuation which is a term actually used by Bill Shannon. So as a disabled person, someone who looks visibly different, he’s very aware that people stare at me but as soon as he directly stares back, they tend to shift their focus, but on the periphery of his own vision, he’s aware that there is all this attention coming at him. So we’ve been playing with this score about trying to keep your attention on the person in your periphery. Jess: A way that you might experience this is if you look at your thumbs, put your thumbs up in front of you and then you slowly move your thumbs out to the side but keep your attention on them. Your peripheral vision is not just side to side. I actually am of the opinion that some of contemporary dance actually is a bit too mysterious so I just want to let you in, a little bit on what I’m doing. This is a score that Claire gave me that we call ‘Fuck Off Peripheral Hipster’ [Audience Laughs] The hipster involved is not actually a reference to any particular class of people it’s actually the verb to stir with my hip. In Claire Cunningham technique, one is not allowed to do movement repetitively that hurts. Alva: What is that person doing to that other person? Is she…hurting him? Is she… playing with him? Can you tell? by looking? What do we see when we see them? What do we notice? Claire: This body has not jumped in the air more than an inch or so. It has not ran on the beach. It has not fired a gun. It has not been in love It has not killed someone in a car accident. It has not played at skipping. It has not climbed a mountain It has not been arrested. It has not painted a ceiling. It has not run away. [Claire’s voice sings in the background] It has not sexually assaulted someone. It has not eaten caviar. It has not carried a coffin. [Claire sings ‘John Anderson, My Jo’ by Robert Burns]

    The High Speed Rail Revolution | China’s Future MEGAPROJECTS: Part 4

    October 21, 2019


    The Chinese aren’t just flying in record
    numbers, they’re falling in love all over again with the preferred method of travel
    in the 20th century, as hundreds of millions of Chinese acquire middle class status and
    the extra income to afford cars. This is presenting a relatively new challenge: heavy congestion
    on their motorways. So to tackle this problem, China has set itself apart from the rest of
    the world by embracing high speed rail at a breakneck pace. It’s goal to build a system
    with more than 35,000 kilometers of track is now more than half complete, making it
    one of the most expensive megaprojects in history. The other reason behind this plan is to allow
    people to commute to work from much farther distances than they could than if they had
    to drive, making high speed rail the key to urbanization. And because China has as much
    high speed rail as every other country combined, it will have more and more of the world’s
    largest cities. In fact, of the top 10 urban areas on Earth
    with more than 20 million people, three of them are in China—and those cities are growing
    so fast that two of the three weren’t in the top 10 last year. The explosion in high speed rail in China
    is especially mind-blowing when you consider that it was first introduced there in 2007,
    that’s less than a decade ago. Since then, daily ridership has grown from 237,000 to
    over 2.5 million. To accommodate all those passengers, it’s
    Railway Ministry has swelled, and now has the same number of employees as there are
    civilians working for the entire United States government. China got to this point under the heavy-handed
    leadership of Minister of Railways Liu Zhijun, or “Great Leap Liu,” who pushed his patriotic
    workers in shifts around the clock to plan and build rail lines as fast as possible.
    He famously said, “to achieve a great leap, a generation must be sacrificed.” Liu meant
    his workers, but when a poorly designed signaling system caused a dramatic crash on a viaduct
    high above a valley in 2011, it was clear that some of the first generation of passengers
    would be sacrificed as well. News anchor: “China’s railway system has
    been plagued with problems including corruption and quality concerns. Authorities have come
    under fire for the way they’ve handled the accident, especially when they buried several
    carriages before carrying out an investigation.” Bryce: But, despite the 40 deaths – and more
    than 200 injuries – in the Wenzhou train collision, the attempts of the government to cover the
    disaster up, and Great Leap Liu’s subsequent fall from grace, the high speed rail boom
    in China has roared on and the system is now considered to be among the safest modes of
    transportation in the entire world. It also leads the globe in annual ridership,
    has the longest single service at 2,400 km from Harbin to Wuhan and has the fastest commercially
    operated train with peak speeds of 430 km/h. Now, having successfully linked up much of
    its own country with high speed rail, China aims to do the same for the rest of the world.
    It is building systems in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and South America, and is bidding on projects
    in Russia, Brazil, Myanmar, and the United States. Thank you very much for tuning in. Until next
    time, for The Daily Conversation, I’m Bryce Plank.

    Income Inequality and the Effects of Globalization – Learn Liberty

    August 22, 2019


    Speaker 1: Lately there’s been a lot of discussion
    of the topic of income inequality. People are pretty upset about the widening gap between
    the top and the bottom of the economic heap in the United States.
    But inequality is a global issue, too, and globally, something fascinating has occurred.
    Over the last 20 years, income inequality worldwide actually has been falling. Recent
    economic growth in India, China, and other developing countries has driven a historic
    period of wealth creation. Billions of people who otherwise would live in poverty are now
    far better off. The globalization that many say contributes to inequality in the US has
    had the opposite effect on a global scale, bringing unprecedented levels of prosperity.
    As we grapple with income inequality in the US, we should be careful not to destroy the
    engines of prosperity that have improved the lives of billions. Globalization, free trade,
    and other foundations of the global economy have been and can continue to be the greatest
    equalizers the planet ever has seen. Learn more about income inequality with Learn Liberty
