Los Angeles Lakers host Kendrick Lamar as part of 'genius series'
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The day after losing their season opener in Portland, the Los Angeles Lakers gathered in their film room and listened to a Pulitzer Prize winner talk to the team about sacrifice, preparation and releasing negativity.
Kendrick Lamar, the first rapper to win the Pulitzer for music, visited with the Lakers at their team facility on Friday as part of their "Genius Series." General manager Rob Pelinka started it last year when the team invited some of the most successful people in different industries to talk to the team throughout the season.

Josh Hart, LeBron James motivated by Kendrick Lamar giving Lakers a ‘Genius Talk’ - Silver Screen and Roll
Kendrick Lamar paid the Lakers a visit on Friday and a few players were blown away, including LeBron James and Josh Hart.
12-time Grammy Award-winning artist, 2018 Pulitzer Prize winner and lifelong Los Angeles Lakers fan Kendrick Lamar paid a visit to the UCLA Health Training Center on Friday for the latest installment of the Lakers’ “Genius Talks.”
The front office introduced these talks almost exactly a year ago, when Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk visited the team last October, and the team has continued the series with big names like film producer Jeffrey Katzenberg, Olympic champion Allyson Felix and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Live Transcript
This site is a fantastic little tool for if you've got no other way of transcribing speech to text. As always, you require an excellent sound source (so no laptop on the other side of the room from the speaker) and one person talking at a time, announcing their names as they talk, as otherwise the transcription is useless to other people!

Vietnam sentences citizen journalist on second anti-state charge
"On October 12, in a half-day trial, a Vietnamese court in the northern province of Bac Ninh sentenced Duong to five years in prison on anti-state charges of 'abusing democratic freedoms,' a criminal offense under article 331 of the revised 2015 penal code, according to news reports. News reports said Duong was convicted for critical reports he posted on Facebook about local corruption and land disputes. His defense lawyer, Ha Huy Son, told Radio Free Asia that the methods authorities used to collect evidence against Duong were not compliant with local laws and that Duong was innocent of the charges.

'Duong was merely doing his job as a journalist and should be immediately and unconditionally released,' said Shawn Crispin, CPJ's Southeast Asia representative. 'Vietnam's use of arbitrary and vague anti-state laws to jail journalists must stop.'"
