2022.01.18 09:33 Throwawayacct1015 How China portrayed Americans in one of its blockbuster movies: The Battle at Lake Changjin
I already made a thread on this topic but I thought it would be relevant here.
The Battle at Lake Changjin was a Chinese movie that came out last year that was only second to Spiderman in box office. It was about the Korean war where they won an very important battle kicking out Americans from the North Korean region. This meant China would have it north border secure and would no longer need to worry about this attack point even up to now.
Anyway the western reviews say its one of those war propaganda films where my side good your side bad. The MC (starring Wu Jing) is the same guy from Wolf Warrior 1/2.
If you watch enough waaction films you notice its very sided most of the time. They only show what troops see from your side not the enemy side. This is dehumanize the enemy. A lot of time the grunts are just there like moving cannon fodder to make the hero look good. Only the general or notable commander stands out but even then they probably just give him one intimidating shallow scene to tell you THIS IS THE EVIL FINAL BOSS.
Except for a propaganda film, the Americans have a pretty good portrayal for an enemy force. You get to see things from their view, you see their generals making decisions, their soldiers following orders in a relatively normal way. And for most part the dialogue isn't cartoonishly retarded like how squid game portrays foreigners. The American general of the operation is honorable and cares about his troops and understand the bravery of any soldier regardless of side. He also doesn't die or even look stupid. The American soldiers are not some idiot stormtroopers and exhibit way smarter behavior than what you normally see of enemy grunts. At least until the last part where they had to wrap up the film and they started going Hollywood style coz they ran out of time/budget. I guess China still has a long way to go to getting the formula right.
Now had the roles being reversed, could I see Americans giving Chinese solders a decent portrayal? Probably not. They will all be faceless mooks acting retarded while our brave white navy seal/green beret/marine commando goes full rambo killing thousands as they charge towards him like L4D zombies. The main villain will be some 1d comically evil Chinese general who likes killing his own men for some reason. There will be this AF love interest for the MC but somehow she is super solder who wants to get revenge on the evil Chinese General for whatever reason. She will kill the big bad general together with the MC in a hilarious way while making some corny wisecrack joke. Then the MC and love interest will kiss while the screen pans up into the sunlight showing all the dead Chinese solders.
So how is this relevant to this sub? Its simple. China shows a mild portrayal of Americans that still somewhat in good light and the west loses their minds like this movie is "Triumph of the Will". Meanwhile lets look at James Bond, American Sniper, or countless other waaction films and see their portrayal of their enemies (esp non white ones). They don't think anything wrong with it.
So with such a mindset like this, how can you expect the west to want to give Asians good portrayal in Hollywood or whatever? Its already such a steep uphill battle.

2022.01.18 09:33 kivinlee A question about the economic model
Hi everyone, I have a question? I know that when the user gets TRU with ETH through the mint, the miner is paid with TRU, and the project side gets the ETH paid by the user to mint TRU. This makes me feel as if the 100$ the user paid was spent into 200$. Because I paid 100$ worth of ETH like the mint, and got the equivalent of TRU. Then I paid the equivalent of 100$ of TRU to the miner, and the project side got 100$ worth of ETH. In this way, it seems that I initially paid 100$ becomes 200$. Is there something wrong with my understanding? If so, I think there is something wrong with this economic model.

2022.01.18 09:33 Ben_Sano Anyone sell SaaS in the M&A market?
I have an interview tomorrow for a BDR roll at a SaaS startup that provides a deal sourcing networking platform for M&A advisors/firms. I made it through the screening process and am on to the cold call and presentation portion.
I'd really like to set myself apart during the interview by speaking more like someone who knows the ins and outs of the M&A market.
What are common pain points within the M&A industry?
Any vocabulary I can use to sound like I know what I'm talking about?
Any insight/advice from anyone in this specific market?

2022.01.18 09:33 flamedarkfire I Quit Over Text
Wish I had a juicy story for you all. But I just told them my mental health couldn’t take working through another Covid surge. I didn’t hate my managers, didn’t have any big blowup fight, and no mask off moment where they showed me how soulless the corporation was, just the whimper of a man who has been pushed to his mental limit. I enjoy helping people but I can’t stay worried and anxious I’m going to bring Covid home again while transporting at least one Covid patient a day now. I can’t say I feel relieved, as I just feel like I let my coworkers down. But there will be other EMTs, there always will be. I’m going to get some sleep.
