The Virus Next Time | by Kevin Rudd - Project Syndicate

"The current crisis could still become much worse before it gets any better. We are already witnessing a breakdown of global supply chains, which will lead to terrible economic, political, and public-health outcomes." — Asia Society President Kevin Rudd writes in Project Syndicate

Echoing recommendations made by earlier commissions that studied the growing risk of pandemics and the inadequate global system for dealing with them, the Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response has released precisely the policy blueprint that we need. World leaders must not dither....

Michelle Zauner on the Insular Process of Writing 'Crying in H Mart'

"I found writing a book to be much more difficult than writing the albums. There's a lot more involved, a lot less to hide behind...writing a book felt like I was really feeling around in the dark. It's also a much lonelier, insular process."

Michelle Zauner, the musician behind Japanese Breakfast, recently spoke with us about her creative process, her favorite Korean comfort food, and what brings her joy right now.

The Japanese Breakfast front woman explains why writing her first memoir 'Crying in H Mart' was more difficult than producing her albums.

Please join us for A BAC online discussion with Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi Tuesday Nov 17, 7:30pm ET Where Do We Go From Here? Following a Long-Range Vision in an Age of Empty Promises and Instant Expectations. Those of us who adhere to progressive social and political ideals may feel discouraged when the political landscape looks bleak and the rules of the game prize expediency over integrity, empty promises over fundamental transformation. However, we cannot give up hope, while bearing in mind that hope in itself is not sufficient to bring about the fulfillment of our goals. We also need to clearly articulate our ideals, uncover the obstacles to their fulfillment, and advocate for the kind of long-range changes that will promote the emergence of a social order that corresponds to our deep aspirations. Join the online Zoom event Nov 17. using this link. https://columbiauniversity.zoom.us/j/91015099710?pwd=cWFnLzlFQS9yejhwZVRJbGJGdDFEZz09 See Facebook event link below: https://www.facebook.com/buddhistaction/posts/820217218740358
THANGKA WEBINAR 1.5 hour webinar in response to questions that monastics, scholars, collectors, museum professionals and meditators ask. Includes description of thangka form, history, usage, text/thangka relationship, safe storage, and respectful choices in preservation. Based on 50 years of thangka research. Further online thangka events will follow in October. This is a direct link to the webinar:
This original interview took place before MULAN started streaming -- before the reviews came out, and the attendant flurry of social media posts. As I told Jiayun, a lot can happen in a week! Suddenly the movie is coming under attack for reasons that have nothing to do with the actual content but with the collaborating parties. It's very challenging to be Asian American, particularly Chinese-American, these days. We have to prioritize and pick our battles. One minute we want to celebrate the flourishing of Asian talent on screen-- a tough battle where we have just begun to make great strides -- but the next, by doing so we may be called out for supporting police brutality or genocide. It's kind of a no-win situation.
So excited to have all these joyful, lucky ladies together on one screen, with Goddess Amy! Tune in tomorrow at 5PM PT.
May 20: Asia Society New York WEBCAST - Telling Stories: #CAMBODIANROCKBANDNYC's Francis Jue and Lauren Yee In Conversation With Diep Tran https://wp.me/p8ilTC-6s3 #aapi #aapiheritagemonth #apahm2020 #asianamericanplaywrights #asianamericanactors #asianamericanstories
I hope everyone from the Asia Society of New York is staying safe inside and practicing their social distancing. As a way to keep myself busy, I just subscribed to this movie streaming platform called Film Festival Flix. I have found so many interesting films to keep me as well as my family entertained during quarantine. One movie I definitely want to watch tonight is this Korean film called Poetry. I just watched the trailer and the storyline seems incredible. I would definitely subscribe to Film Festival Flix to watch Poetry as well as searching through other amazing movies on the platform.
I was there with my family tonight around 7:30 or so and why was the museum closed? The website does not say anything about the early closure of tonight (Friday night). There were no posted signs, nor recorded messages when I called in front of the museum. It was so strange and we were very very disappointed.
Why does Asia Society New York feel it is not important enough to organize & resist the Indian state’s (ala Nuremberg laws) unconstitutional, outright discriminatory CAA & the anticipated dehumanizing NRC. Have you made any effort that I may have missed? I don’t see any commentary or any events on your page. Who are we scared of? What is basic state-sponsored violation of human rights not important to you?
