I don't understand it. Maybe someone can explain the significance.

RE: Penny business venture
So it sounds like a new podcast network is using its ties to China to differentiate itself from the Wonderys and Parcasts when it meets with advertisers, potential podcasters, and other industry people.

And they claim that Penny is signed on to provide content. No confirmation from Penny's side. But according to this, it seems Penny's new business (if his side confirms it exists) isn't the podcast network, but it is a podcast on the network.

He will need to put content up regularly, and I don't see him having the time to do that. But, who knows?

Exactly, Penny is a star on the "network" not the founder , he is probably getting a cut of the upside for his participation, all while building his brand around the world.

Chinese middle class folks in Hong Kong are having problems. The men can't afford to buy a house and the women won't marry them if they don't have a house.

They mad as hell

Too many have too little to lose. [Image: chinaprotest_zpsoyvfubva.jpg]'.



HONG KONG — Thousands of protesters shut down Hong Kong’s international airport Monday, defying an intensifying police crackdown, as China issued ominous warnings that described the protests as “terrorism” and began massing a paramilitary force in a southern border city.

Some of the protesters who had been occupying the airport’s arrivals hall swarmed into the departures area Monday, prompting authorities to cancel all flights and advise travelers to leave one of the world’s busiest hubs.

The action came in response to a sharp increase in the level of force employed by Hong Kong’s embattled police. Hours before the airport shutdown, two police officers elsewhere in the city had pinned a black-clad demonstrator to the concrete, one officer’s knee pressing the young man’s face into a pool of his own blood.

“I’ve already been arrested,” the man yelled as he cried for help. “Don’t do this, I’m begging you.”

RE: Penny business venture
No one is sure what's going to happen.

Mostly it's a horrendous wait-and-see game. The next two months are going to be very telling.

That ONE COUNTRY 2 SYSTEMS thing was doomed from the start, imo. It seemed obvious that those two ideologically opposed approaches to justice would clash...and rightly so.

Britain expects China to honor their signed contract, however. So the Hong Kong protesters have the 'backing' of GB..and the U.S.

Taking over the airport was prolly not a great idea, but it was a spontaneous reaction to police violence, and the Hong Kong folks did get their message across to more of the world. I didn't check how many flights were cancelled, but that is one huge hub of an airport.

The actual demonstrations involve as many as a million protesters at one time. Hong Kong police (under the command of a puppet Hong Kong government) are obviously in the minority; they are struggling therefore to keep order, often resorting to horrific violence which gets broadcast on social media--further inciting anger.

On the one hand, nothing gets hidden with social media driving the bus. On the other, you have to search for truth, or you'll get fed what the search engines think you want to hear, based on the data they've collected through your searches...lol.

The Hong Kong folks are putting their very lives on the line. They know their future is at stake, not to mention the future of Hong Kong itself. The Hong Kong 'system' of Justice is in danger of being co-opted by the Chinese Government. It doesn't help to have a Chinese puppet in charge of Hong Kong. She supports extradition.

Meanwhile, protests are also going on in Moscow. Police are brutal there too, as evidenced by the violent videos of their police pounding on protesters that went viral, which is why Russia is blaming Google, btw.
https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-europe...-in-russia

The masses don't like Putin as much any more. They want elections. He's worried.


I know this. If we have to watch the folks in Hong Kong get mowed down by the Chinese Army, it will be worse than heartbreaking. Same with Moscow.
