...for lobsters:

101-year-old fisherwoman still catching Atlantic lobsters after nine decades

Virginia Oliver picked her first snapping lobster out of the Atlantic in 1928 – and she’s still at it.

The 101-year-old has been looking for shellfish off the coast of New England since she was a little girl and still very much has her sea legs.

With the help of her son Max, 78, she continues to head out on the water, come rain or shine, and may just well be the oldest fisher in the world.

Opinions vary: I think the Supra looks better but the Z is a better overall value IMO based on the information I've seen so far. Plus, it's a real manual with a 3rd pedal and all unlike the fake dual clutch, pedal shifter, etc., ones so that's also a big plus IMO.

Hate attacks are up in Orange County, with a huge increase against Asian Americans, new report says

Hate crimes increased by 35% in Orange County in 2020, the largest annual jump in at least a decade, according to a new report.

Hate-motivated attacks that did not rise to the level of a crime — known as hate incidents — increased by 69%, driven largely by an 19-fold increase in attacks on Asian Americans.

The findings, released Friday by the nonprofit Orange County Human Relations Commission, mirror statewide trends.

A state attorney general’s report found that hate crimes reported to law enforcement rose 31% last year, with attacks against Asians up by 107%.

Money & Investment / Speaking "ceiling", what about the Bamboo Ceiling?

Asian Americans in Finance Say Racism Leads to ‘Bamboo Ceiling’

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in finance face structural racism that stymies career advancement, a recent survey found.

Nine out of 10 respondents said prejudice excludes them from consideration for senior or executive-level positions -- a challenge some call hitting the “bamboo ceiling,” according to a report by the Association of Asian American Investment Managers.

Asians often fall victim to the “model minority myth,” the view that they are diligent workers who have overcome discrimination to gain a solid foothold in the workplace, according to the AAAIM. As a result, Asians are often excluded from leadership roles, the group said, adding that almost 70% surveyed believe AAPI professionals aren’t perceived as good leaders.

The results of the report are “disheartening,” Gordon Liao, co-founder of 4C Capital LLC and board vice chair of AAAIM, said in a statement.

“We hope that this provides CEOs, HR leaders and managers in the industry with a reference point for what it will take to create a truly inclusive environment, so that we can continue to strive towards breaking the bamboo ceiling,” Liao said.

AAAIM surveyed 100 investment management professionals and interviewed more than a dozen executives for the report published on Sept. 14.

The best answer for that kind of answer is for one to answer for oneself after watching it. With that said, "Shang Chi" was a success at the box office:

'Shang-Chi' breaks Labor Day weekend record at the box office. The newest Marvel movie “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” brought in a whopping $94 million over the long Labor Day weekend.

'Shang-Chi' tops box office again with $35.8 million, best second-weekend gross of the pandemic

'I’ve honestly never felt more free': how Black Americans feel living in Japan

three women and three men from the Black American community in Japan who shared their views on sensitive topics such as police and racism in the U.S.

George Floyd’s killing had struck a chord among the interviewees, with some expressing concern that the same could happen to their loved ones back in the U.S.

LaTanya Whitaker, a gospel teacher and a restaurant owner in Japan, said it scares her that the incident is “something that can happen to my husband or to my son.”

Expressing the same fear, Rivonne Moore noted that racism in America has kept her in Japan. “Yeah, I did not intend to stay for 12 years,” she said. “But here I am.”

A worker in music and entertainment, interviewee Ebony Bowens moved to Japan immediately after graduating from university in New York. “You know, I can do things here in Japan that I can't do...back at home, in the U.S.”

Tamru Grant’s words seemingly echoed Bowens’ sentiments. He said that he found freedom while living in Japan because he felt targeted back in the U.S. “It's a really tense situation… when you see this white cop coming towards you, especially if it's two.”

Grant said about his experience in Japan: “Living in Japan, as an African American, I've honestly never felt more free.” He talked about how he can catch a cab without even trying, and that he can say “good morning” to an old Japanese woman and she will look him in the eye and say “good morning” back without any fear.

Henry Moreland Seals, who has been working in Japan for 24 years, shared stories of kindness from strangers he met in Japan. He recounted a story where he was walking and came across a garden. An old man who owned the garden invited Seals and his friend in. The Japanese man then offered them free vegetables, like tomatoes. Seals says, seemingly in disbelief, “He was just friendly and kind.”

He also noted that in Japan, “We didn't have to worry whether someone was gonna call the police on us. That we were going to get shot, that we were going to get assaulted,” whereas in the U.S. this is a present fear in many Black Americans’ lives.

Tyrone Jones II noted that there is black fear in the U.S. because they are viewed “less of a person, more of a threat.” He acknowledged, however, that since Japan is an extremely homogeneous society, he still sticks out “like a sore thumb.”

The interviewees noted that the media still plays a huge role in how Japanese view African Americans, and they are working to “dispel as many myths as possible.” They talk about how in the U.S., it’s racism but in Japan, it’s ignorance.

Grant says, “Have I felt racial bias in Japan? It’s hard to answer that question because not really.”

The whitest paint in the world has been created in a lab at Purdue University, a paint so white that it could eventually reduce or even eliminate the need for air conditioning, scientists say. The paint has now made it into the Guinness World Records book as the whitest ever made.

Things like this is the main reason why I don't care much for Politicians' words aka lies  ???:
