79 - Displaced Rohingya & Weird Silicon Valley

Part 1: Who are the Rohingya? The media cycle has forgotten about their presence in Myanmar, despite the ethnic cleansing reports. I present to you the history of the Rohingya, some issues of their current day struggle, and how big business & religion may be the shadowy forces pulling the strings on the whole fiasco.

Part 2: What's going on in Silicon Valley?  The invesments into blingy bizarre startups baffles the mind! The way the Silicon Valley people speak and the way they promote their products is like a maze for the blind at the center of some alien onion. I present some of the major investments into Silicon Valley for 2017 and explore the language they use.
