The Power of Mettā in Action
In looking back at the turbulent recent history of her country, Sayalay Chandadhika, a Burmese Buddhist nun based in Germany, sees a never-ending spiral of destructive patterns that continue to produce the same disastrous results. How to disrupt this disturbing trend? In her words, the response is clear: “We need another method, and I cannot see another method rather than mettā.” Speaking to us from Germany, Sayalay Chandadhika affirms that mettā, or the practice of loving kindness, is not merely some optimistic or naïve way to engage with a difficult situation like Myanmar’s present circumstances, it is actually the very spirit we are seeing right now on display during the country’s daily protests. As an example, she describes a particularly tense standoff between protesters and police, which was defused by civilians offering the officers cool water on a hot day. She notes that this wasn’t merely a clever tactic to trick the police towards gaining some tactical advantage, rather it was a simple and generous action borne out of a mind trained in mettā. Through examples like these, Sayalay Chandadhika describes something truly stunning: a people whose lifelong spiritual practice of cultivating wholesome tendencies now finds itself facing the aggression of a professionally trained military with just those positive qualities of mind, like mettā, as their “weapon” of choice for self-defense. In her description, we can see how the non-violent struggle of the Burmese people today —in large part grounded in their Buddhist practice and identity—has firm connections with the Civil Rights Movement in America and Gandhi’s crusade in India. A note about our mission here at Insight Myanmar Podcast. While it usually takes us several weeks at minimum to produce an episode, we feel that the current moment demands a faster turn-around, and we are working to get out episodes now within just days. However, this can be challenging for a primarily volunteer organization, especially one with limited funds. We hope to continue bringing interviews on this topic, but we need your support to do so.

Google SVP's tweet stokes the Chromebook hardware flame
This week on The Chrome Cast, we start our conversation out by highlighting the very-excellent Simplify Gmail Chrome extension that just hit version 2.0.  We reported on this earlier in the week and many, many people seemed very interested in the service and we get into a few of the reasons why this take on Gmail isn't just a good-looking change to the messy Gmail inbox, but a real productivity booster with tons of extra features for end users, too. In the second half, we delve into the tweet from Google SVP Hiroshi Lockheimer that teased upcoming hardware and software for Chrome OS fans in the 2021 calendar year.  As Hiroshi doesn't tend to tweet without quite a bit of thought going into what he has to say, I think we're safe to assume the things he mentioned in the tweet will likely come to pass.  Devices and software that are "fire" are on the way and we expect to see them soon.  There's obviously good reason to think this already with all the hardware we're currently keeping track on on the horizon, but this tweet just re-lit the flame. NOTABLE LINKS * Google SVP Hiroshi Lockheimer's tweet has us very excited for 2021 Chromebooks * Expect an absolute avalanche of Chromebooks in all shapes and sizes in 2021 [VIDEO] * Simplify Gmail v2 is here, it's beautiful, and you should be using it right now * After feedback, Simplify Gmail v2 has a simple pricing structure that looks great * There's another detachable Snapdragon 7c Chromebook tablet in the works * The ASUS Chromebook Detachable CM3 gets huge landing page and more official details * Chrome OS desperately needs a unified App Store ------- This episode is also brought to you by NordVPN.

Transcription Abner Li: And welcome to alphabet scoop episode one theme. This week, we are discussing everything. The thing about Android 12, which launched last as they unexpected which is a day or eight compared to the past five years or so. But we had a week to live with Android 12 and. We've we we've dived a lot into it. Android 12 Developer Preview launches [00:00:31] So just to get, to get out of the way, this is starting with a developer preview, there will be three of them followed by full betas and then the before final release, but Android 12 live now, as it is every year is just for developers. And this year Google with. And like 12, what for developers? They want to give them new tools for building great experiences for users. [00:01:03] That's the official quote. And we're definitely seeing that in notifications, for example, that may have been completely redesigned with bigger icons, the, a bit more friendly. Google has the, we arranged everything again. And. I think for the most part it's well, in the case of the media player, I like how they went back to enlarging the cover art after shrinking at this with Android, you Evan. [00:01:35] So there's some nice peaks, all lounge. We won't get to appreciate any of the changes until active app has stopped updating the apps, but so far so good. [00:01:47] Kyle Bradshaw: I don't know though. It seems interesting with the, that this that they're talking about tools to give to developers for, for great experiences. [00:01:54] And it just doesn't feel like that's the, that's not what I would describe as what we've seen with Android 12 so far, that seems to be the promise of Android 12, but it doesn't feel like what we've seen so far. None of the, the headline changes to Android 12 feel. Like their developer empowering or, or experience driving, [00:02:17] Abner Li: you know, I can see that, but I, I think in some ways what they mean about when they get in the case of notifications, it's I think putting the app, I caught, like there, it's kind of a big deal. [00:02:33] And in terms of that, the conveying that you're doing with an individual. Either, the notifications always felt a part of the system, but there's a level of theming here that that's, I don't know, empowers the developer to make it more of their own experience. [00:02:53] Kyle Bradshaw: Yeah. I can see that, especially with, by comparison to Android 11, which kind of lumped social apps together into that conversation's view. [00:03:02] I feel blank Android 12. With the way that it, you know, as you're saying, put the, the app icon on the side, it brings back that level of the division between apps. Like sometimes I'd, I'd get confused. What apps different notifications are, even from when I'm looking at the conversations view on Android 11, [00:03:25] Abner Li: but at the same time, It's I hope, well, it being able to put your own spin on something within limits is better than a wild West approach that pot, but it'd be fine the early days of the platform, but I hope it keeps it. Notification redesign [00:03:44] I hope this free, this free expression that Google's allowing apps and Android 12 notifications is still within limits. Yeah. So notifications, how, how either of you like this year is innovation on a lock on media notifications? [00:04:05] Ben Schoon: It looks visually a little bit nicer. It's minor, but it's nice. [00:04:10] Kyle Bradshaw: Yeah. [00:04:12] Iteration is all it needed. It, it, it was already kind of a revolution as it were last time. This was, it was nice to just have a new iteration this year. [00:04:21] Abner Li: Hmm. I don't know. They always change it from . That's like They always change it. Yeah. [00:04:29] Ben Schoon: It's not an Android release without a tweak to media and a tweak to notification. Camera and mic privacy toggles [00:04:36] Abner Li: That's fair. That's, that's pretty true. So, yeah. That's notifications and I think another big tentpole that we're starting to see is privacy with privacy toggles to block the kava and microphone. In practice. I, okay. So there's the urban myth, I guess, of people thinking that Facebook is listening to them, but Instagram is listening to them to serve. [00:05:06] And to be [00:05:07] Ben Schoon: fair, seems like it's happening even though it's not. [00:05:12] Abner Li: It's perfect. It's those moments. There has to be some. Psychological explanation to why those moments feel so, so visible, but yeah, and, and I doubt that Google is going to be that explicit that he's privacy toggles. Meant to mitigate that, but I like the idea of these toggles, especially with the microphone also that also than the Metabo. [00:05:40] Ben Schoon: Yeah. It just, it feels like a kill switch, which, you know, we've seen on a lot of laptops have like a physical switch to cut off the camera either with a privacy cover or with a it just cuts off the software. I mean, like one of the things I liked about it was there's been a lot of times where I've been tied into like a video conference from my phone and it's a time I really don't want to be seen this. [00:06:02] I'm always worried. Like I'm always checking, make sure I'm muted, make sure I'm that the camera's off, but it'd be nice to just hit a toggle and make sure that that definitely can't happen. So. I think it's, it's nice. It's a good, [00:06:15] Abner Li: yeah. So yeah, privacy. I'm sure we'll see more of that. Going forward and that's, I think there, there are quite a handful of user facing changes that are all of the UI and develop a pre-vis one. Emojis and text on screenshots [00:06:29]Mockup got a nice with a boost. You can now add emoji and tax a screenshots while it's also available. Not just a screenshot. So I think this is, it would be more comprehensive editor. What does Samsung do? Could they keep the mock up tool or do they have their own custom thing that they have their [00:06:48] Ben Schoon: own? [00:06:50] Yeah. They have their own, which is optimized for the S pe…

RSR286 - Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown With Roger Alan Nichols - the Making of the New Album Pressure
My guests today are Roger Alan Nichols and Tyler Bryant. Roger has been a guest on the show before to talk about producing great rock records with his band Dreaming In English and artists like Paramore, Seal, Larking Poe, and Steven Tyler and you can hear his story on episode RSR45. But today we are here to talk about the records he makes with the other Tyler of Nashville based rock band Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown. Tyler is a gifted singer and guitarist who has released four successful studio albums with his band. He has toured with such groups as Jeff Beck, ZZ Top, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Guns N' Roses and Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as playing several rock focused music festivals. The group's current lineup consists of Tyler Bryant (lead guitar & vocals), Graham Whitford (rhythm guitar), Ryan Fitzgerald (bass), and Caleb Crosby (drums). Recently Roger recorded Tyler and the band for their new record Pressure and powerful driving rock album that sounds like Audioslave, The Foo Fighters, and Tom Petty all wrapped up in one with killer guitar tones, Swampy slide playing, and soulful songs. Somehow they managed to pull off this record at a time when most of the world was hiding away or venting on social media. So it’s great to hear some creative fire come out of the speakers.
