Will the Fed Slow Down on Rate Hikes?
"I'm going to start off by jumping across into the fed article right here. Now, this was back on November 30th. So just so everyone is aware this has got nothing to do with the most recent price action obviously the last 24 48 hours. But it is a trend. We watch the fed minutes. We watch what they say and it typically becomes like a cruise ship. You know, it's a long way to turn. It stays its path for a long time. It takes a long time to slow down and change course. The fed came out and said that they're not going to be potentially raising rates as quickly. What do you guys been keeping up on this and how has it affected what you do when your day to today? What are your thoughts on the fed reducing the rate at which it is increasing rates, guys? when I see it. I don't think inflation has come down that much, just looking at some charts and some data, I don't think inflation has, it has slowed, but it's not to the point that they want. Whether it's just some bit of a relief from the bear market that we've been in. And we're seeing some money flow back into the traditional markets with the U.S. dollar getting a little bit weaker. But yeah. I'm not buying into it too much. It has affected me with House loans. It's a bit of a pain. But it is necessary to flush out, especially weight companies that have gone through an aggressive growth cycle, especially tech companies. I've got a few friends that work in tech. And the companies that they work with went through aggressive growth cycles and now they're just laying off staff, which will go into with by a bit laying a 30% of the staff, but I don't think that's that much compared while the companies out there.
A Meditation on Matthew 11:28-30 for Wednesday of the 2nd Week of Advent
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Matthew, chapter 11 versus 28 through 30. Jesus said, come to me, all you who labor and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me. For I am gentle and humble and heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden, light. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the lord saying to you?
Georgia Voters Share Why They Support Herschel Walker
"And what you guys to hear a couple clips from Georgia voters and what they believe as it relates to Herschel Walker and what they believe is it relates to Warnock, let's start with clip three. About a strong military gas prices can be set related to Herschel Walker, wrote a clip. Got to talk to some of my other friends. Let's go to Karen so Karen tell me your son is serving our country and you said that's one of the most important issues for you is having a strong military. Yes, a strong military, the price of the gas inflation is off the chain. We just need Herschel Walker in there. I'm a huge supporter for rehearsal walker and I just pray he gets in there. And so what's the number one issue for you and your family? Economy. I'm a small business owner. Been one for over 30 years here. Just means everything to my business. Everything, you know, crime, just everything. So, you know, I love the fact that Georgians are speaking out. I mean, I would love to hear what excuse somebody would give to support Warnock, but at least you can hear, you know, a lot of people, I would say normal human beings, right? But where did about the things that these people are talking about?
Jim Hanson and Will Chamberlain Are About to Fix the Internet
"And I senior counsel of the Internet accountability project are about to fix online content and all of it. So will we got like 5 minutes? Here we go. I think that there's an opportunity now to break the monopoly to the left has had on our information space because not just a Twitter files, which were anticlimactic, I think, on purpose. I think Elon held a lot back. But there's plenty of evidence and more will come out that the government has been colluding with tech and the left and the media to shut down ideas they want. So I think we're going to have an opportunity to fix that and to change that. So I won't just curious. Aside from now having a free zone in Twitter, what else can we do to try and force the leveling of the playing field? So I think the big change now you want to approach regulation is that before Elon bought Twitter, you kind of wanted to use every single tool at your disposal and whether or not they hurt the companies really badly or didn't provide as much benefit as they could have. It didn't matter. You just a hammer wasn't appropriate tool to deal with the fact that the entirety of big tech was arrayed against the conservative movement. And just take a section two 30 reform, for example, it's kind of a blunt instrument to use against big tech. But now we're in a unique situation where all of a sudden we have one of the big tech companies and not just a big one, maybe perhaps the most societally consequential one in Twitter. You can argue in my view compellingly that everything that appears on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube. It's usually derivative of what happens on Twitter because that's where the sort of public debate has had and resolved before people generate content on those other platforms. So we need to kind of look at regulation a little differently with more of a scalpel than a hammer. And so you're trying to find ways to still go after companies like Facebook and Google. And Instagram and TikTok and companies like that while making sure that Twitter isn't you're not opening up Twitter to severe litigation, which obviously the left would want to do now.
Jeff Katz: Richmond Restaurant Should've Still Served Christian Group
"Story involves a popular establishment in Richmond called metzger's bar and butchery, and the family foundation was a faith based group. They were going to have their big party there and what about 90 minutes beforehand Jeff cats. They canceled. They canceled on them. They did. And this is what is so crazy about this Todd. Victoria Cobb, who is the president of that group, has been a guest on my program. I can't even begin to tell you how many times and the family foundation of Virginia great organization really, really concerned with protecting innocent life and what a great people. They're just great people and they chose this particular place, metzger's. And as you say about 90 minutes before they were scheduled to show up for their dessert reception, they get a call that said, hey, we've decided you can't come in because some of our staff members are not going to feel comfortable or safe. Yeah, and according to, according to their press release, Victoria Cobb's press release, they said that some of the gay staff would not serve them. This is insane. What you do at that point is go up to your employees who refuse to do their job and you give them an ultimatum. Either either serve the rice krispie treats or hit the road. That's exactly right side. You know, I reached out to my brother who has spent the better part of 30 years as a chef as an executive chef. A number of big restaurants in places like San Francisco and South Florida. And I said to him, so what do you do? He says, well, if you don't have trouble getting staff, you tell the current staff, hey, listen, you do your job, or you get out, and if you really are thinking, my gosh, I don't know if I can replace these people, then you is the owner you as the managers you as the executive team take care of this party.
Dueling Parades in Texas Over the Meaning of Christmas
"A pastor organizing the parade at reverend Shane Allen responded that he was glad to see a group of Christians actually standing up for what the Bible says instead of bowing down to the culture. But critics piled on the mainstream media piled on The Washington Post and a reporter down to Taylor, Texas to document all of this, city council member Robert Garcia, who they point out as a Catholic army veteran, was very upset at the Christians. Mister Garcia, the councilman said Christmas is a time for all of us to put our differences aside and come closer together as a country and a community. No, sir, that is Independence Day. This is Christmas, a holiday celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Just want to throw that out there. So it goes on. So the city pulled out of the parade, the school district would not allow children to march in a Christian Christmas parade, so the city council decided the best thing they could do is create a second parade. So they literally had the two parades back to back on the same day with about 30 minutes in between each parade. The city council said their parade was going to be inclusive and tolerant, unlike the parade hosted by the pastors. As a matter of fact, they even renamed the parade. It was once known as the Christmas parade of lights, now known as the very merry holiday parade. Really which holiday. And by the way, just want to throw this out there. I'm just curious whenever they celebrate Ramadan down there in Taylor, Texas, and they have a big parade down Main Street and they're going to let the drag queens march on the Muslim parade? Going to be a big stink raised about that, ladies and gentlemen, I think not.
Sarah Fuller's Overhyped Kickoff Made 'History'?
"I wanted to talk about what happened the other day in the college football game between Missouri and agave eNOS Alma mater Vanderbilt university. In case you didn't hear, the amazing thing I'm about to say, well, here's what happened. A female soccer star on Vanderbilt's championship team was asked to kick off in the second half of the football game. And boy, the whole sports world was watching. And at the beginning of the second half, Sarah fuller ran on the field for the opening kick-off and she knocked the ball to the Missouri 37 yard line and then she immediately jogged to the sideline to get out of harm's way. And that moment was immediately hailed as history. Even ESPN SportsCenter, Twitter account, they claimed that her pick changed the game. Other people said she made history. She's the first woman to play in a power 5 football game, not only that, there are a lot of people who believe she broke football's gender barrier. Of course, the people who believe that are assholes who just want a virtue signal above all else, but what a cheap exactly do. She got a standing ovation for kicking a ball 30 yards, and then she ran her frail ass to the sidelines to be greeted by her winless coach who used her to try and save his job, it was a publicity stunt by a coach who knew he was a goner, and on the way out he decided, you know what? Let me do something that would mean nothing, but mean everything with the nonsense people, the people who don't know shit. And I'm not trying to knock Sarah fuller. It's a good athlete. An accomplished high level division one athlete. She's a soccer goalie for the Vanderbilt women's soccer team. But she was pushed into believing that competing against men was going to make her very important, and it won't.

A Timeless Podcast
"So I want to ask you, there's nothing like this and that's not a compliment. It's just a statement of fact. There are many wonderful podcasts. I never claim that my radio show is better than everybody else's or I don't think that way. I want to make a contribution. But if something is unique, it is unique. The openness and honesty and exploration of life. Not to mention the age difference which one would think on paper is significant and turns out to be essentially insignificant to both of us, which it's really beautiful. It's a human show. That's the best way to put it. So anyway, I wanted to ask you, you finally have begun your own show. You don't you're not calling it a podcast. Is that correct? I'm calling it a show because it's a live on YouTube, and then it also is on the Salem news channel. And then it's in podcast form. So it's a podcast or a show or a streaming show. So how long do you devote to each? I devote about 45 minutes and just like Dennis and Julie started off in the 30 minute to 45 minute range. I'm hoping that it will grow. But also, if I can be concise with the news in my commentary, I don't want to keep people longer than they would do. It's Tuesday through Friday. So Dennis and Julie's on Mondays and then the remaining days of the week I'm doing timeless.

In the midst of one of the worst implosions that the space has ever witnessed, LTC momentarily became vulnerable, plummeting all the way down to 49.58. But the cryptocurrency stood its ground, though, while the likes of Bitcoin and Ethereum were sent crashing to various monthly lows and eventually commenced its own rally to close November on a high note. As a result, litecoin exited last month with an index price of 76.52 and registered an impressive jump of 24 within a 30 day period.

"Visiting the cubs. I'm like, I like the reds on the money line plus one O 5. I like Graham ashcraft to earn a win at plus one 79. I like Kyle Hendricks to allow more than three and a half runs at plus one 15. Here's a situation at Wrigley Field. Temperatures in the mid to upper 80s, maybe even touching the low 90s, wind blowing out to left center at 15 plus miles an hour. And the reason why I like the reds in this game is because their picture Graham ashcraft, this season has a ground ball rate of 58% and a walk rate of 4%. Those are very important important metrics to have when the wind is blowing out it greatly. You don't want to put guys on base for free. That's the low walk rate. And you want to keep the ball on the ground. And the wind's blowing out, thus the high ground ball rate. As a matter of fact, in the triple-A in the miners before he was called up earlier this season, his ground ball rate was 71%. So this guy is an ace at keeping the ball on the ground. He also is a pitcher that has the best money line or money line win rate in baseball this season. He's number one in base money line one are money one betting on this pitcher when he earned his team when this pitcher pitches. So ashcraft has been really, really good for betters this season. His peripherals are perfect for the environment here. Meanwhile, Kyle Hendricks is the pitcher for the Chicago Cubs and just not what he once was. His ground ball rate is under 40%. That's too low in this environment, his hard hit rate is almost 40%. That's too high. He doesn't miss bats, the strikeout rate is well under 20% at 17.2. He's allowing 1.55 homers per 9 to season with the wind blowing out. I wouldn't be shocked to see him give up at least one or two long balls. So I like the reds. I like ashcraft versus Hendrix. I'll be targeting bats and Cincinnati side. More so than Chicago side, not that Chicago can't. You know, go deep and exploit the win in this environment, but I really do think the kitchen advantage much greater for the Cincinnati reds and ashcraft has been the most profitable pitcher trying to pitch to bed on so far this season of any in Major League Baseball and he hasn't pitched up here at all season. So definitely like that spot with the reds. And then the other game, again, not two really good teams, but Seattle. And the Oakland a's. Logan Gilbert is by far one of the best pictures you probably don't know about for the Seattle Mariners, has an 8 and three record 2.44 ERA this season. They are big, heavy favorites, more than $2 against Oakland. I like Gilbert to get the win at plus one 33. Him to hold the a's while he's out on the bump to under four and a half hits at plus one ten. Liaison offense, it's literally the worst and Major League Baseball. They're dead last an average on base slugging and OPS. They're a extraordinarily punchless offense and Gilbert as with his 8 three record of 2.44 ERA has been really, really good this season. Also one of the most profitable pitchers to bet on so far this year. So I love attacking the a's offense. That's one of my favorite things to do is look and see who the a's and the tigers are playing. And then on those pictures, the a's especially just a horrendous offense. So dig into Logan Gilbert and the Seattle manners tonight with Gilbert hopefully getting a win for me at plus one 33 and holding that a's offense under four and a half hits while he's out there. So a couple of games that may not be great for TV ratings, but certainly I think some spots to exploit based on what we're seeing at Wrigley Field and in Seattle tonight. Anytime you put money on a game, it's worth watching, right? Because I always tell people, you know, you gamble, it's like going to a movie, right? It's for the price of admission. It improves your viewing experience. It's really what it's about. That is a great point. You make a wise point. And it's also the emotions that come with that are fun, the highs, and the lows, you had a low, a couple nights ago. I had a tremendous low last night. I don't know if you know saw my bed beat. We went over what happened with the D backs and the Padres for you. On Tuesday night, but last night, I had a best bet of the cards Marlins under 6 and a half alternate total at plus one 60. It was three two in the 9th inning, cardinals were up three two, Ryan helsley comes in to close it out for the Cardinals. He entered the game with a 0.30 ERA in 29.2 innings pitched. And with two outs, he gave up a two run Homer to abi Garcia. To make it a four three game. So not only did I lose my best bet, but then I watched my team some of Cardinals fan lose a game they probably should have won to the Miami Marlins and failed to a complete sweep. So it was a bad bad night after Avi Garcia hit that two run shot for me at the betting window. All right, real quick. Let's move to the John Deere classic. We gave our favorite plays for that yesterday on the pod. Right now, the first round is about midway, so there's still a lot of guys that need a tee off, but you wanted to make note of JT poston who was 8 under through 14 holes. And I'll go ahead and throw a guy out there who is from my neck of the Woods, wildwood Missouri, his name was Chris naag. He qualified for the United States open and fared well there, got into the John Deere field, Chris nagle, is 6 under through 9. So we have a couple of really, really nice scores out there posting a nagel and I know posting with someone that you were interested in before this tournament started. Is there any way to get invested in him now that we've seen that we get off to a good start round one? Yeah, so again, just make note we're recording this podcast at 1220 this afternoon. So and we'll probably be posted sometime around one 32 o'clock. So keep that in mind. Right now, post in top of the leaderboard right now at 800 with a two shot lead, data golf has him as a 16.2% chance of winning the tournament. So right now you can put money down 5 to one for him to win this tournament. Also some good odds at plus one 30 for him to finish in the top 5 and I just share that just because when you and I both liked him coming in and he's off to such a phenomenal start and we talked about it yesterday on wager as well as the podcast, there's not a lot of big names playing in this tournament. A, they're taking the week off, they're getting ready for the open. Also, a lot of them are over in Portland, playing on the live tour, the 54 tour. So keep that in mind. So I think there's some value there right now we're posting off to such a great start. All right, that'll do it for the Thursday edition of it anyway to podcast.

"Thank you so much We appreciate that Well ahead of this fed announcement this afternoon We had some economic data this morning and retail sales they come in and I'm just going to come for all the across the board a little bit below consensus numbers So maybe for some coin to question the strength of this consumer but we'll certainly break it down with our next guest Andrew hoganson global managing partner of consumer goods retail and logistics at Infosys consulting which is part of the public traded company info cyst that on your Bloomberg terminal So Andrew you know when you saw the retail sales number this morning did they tell you anything would you take away Yeah thanks We expect that sales continue to decline I don't know that we fully expect it to decrease as you said we're below the consensus But I think most everything we saw in the numbers was not really a full surprise The shift the shift of spending to more services more experience Especially as COVID restrictions continue to relax and heading into the summer So I'd say overall on par with what we expected maybe a little faster maybe driven by again the inflation driven by the fed increasing rates other signals that consumers are getting that are causing the decrease in confidence to come a little sooner than maybe it wasn't anticipated What do you think about the idea that you know with this inventory buildup at the huge retailers Walmart target that we heard about a couple of weeks ago we're going to start to see prices really come back down Kathy wood was the first person to mention it to us at the up conference in Bentonville and now we just heard from Vince ignorant He thinks Also this is going to take care of some of the inflation Inflation momentum Yeah I agree I think first of all those retailers have to clear out that inventory right A lot of the seasonal inventory clearly has to be taken care of before we get into the back to school season especially in sectors like apparel and really the main mechanism they have to do that is promotional activity So I do think we'll see an increase in promotional activity which as you settle counter the effect of inflation At the same time a lot of the clients that we work with at emphasis have been focusing on efficiency mechanisms cost takeout approaches supply chain improvements which also will help reduce some of their expense side allowing them to continue to bring hopefully bring prices more in check So when we think about just the consumer and retail the consumer is still fully employed wages are going up There's certainly some positive things out there that when you think about retail sales and the health of the consumer certainly No absolutely But one thing we look at as we look at.

"Kings island was first opened in 1972 with the $31 million price tag. That's $214 million adjusted for inflation in 2022. In its first season, the Parker sage 2 million visitors. That was double what Coney Island had received in its final year of operation. King's island rides accredited with invigorating the love of modern day roller coasters. The ride, the son of the beast, will induce a weak feeling in the legs just at the mere sight of its dips and height. It was also the first ever amusement park to sell pizza. When the park first opened, many popular TV shows used it as a filming location, such as the partridge family and the Brady bunch. Even evil knievel, the coolest stuntmen in the history of the world, successfully jumped 14 Greyhound buses at kings island. Clearing a record breaking distance of 41 meters. A record which stood until 1999. Woody Harrelson used to work there and they even had Carmen Electra in the dance show. As we know through previous seasons of fairground fuck ups, while so many people go through the turnstiles of these parks and have a great time. Many of these parks have dark chapters to be uncovered. As we are about to find out, kings island has a dark chapter known as black Sunday. It's Sunday, June 9, 1991. 8 30 p.m. one part of kings island is October fest. A tribute to the German beer drinking festival. Opened with the park in 1972. The area resembles a German town with timber framed German style architecture. The first house building is its central attraction. Featuring live shows with several indoor eateries. Nearby is an outdoor bar that serves German beers and other drinks. With a portion of its seating area located above some water. Bordering October 1st Lake. At approximately 8 30 p.m. in the evening. Timothy benning, aged 22, and William heathcoat, aged 20. They will work colleagues and were there for a company picnic day. We're crossing a bridge when a freak accident happened. As they went over the bridge to go on one final ride, bending reached into a bubbling fountain to splash water on his friend. Once Ben in hand touched the water, he went into a convulsion. Losing consciousness before falling into the shallow water. His friend William heathcoat jumped in to pull him out. Immediately hath coat was shocked and convulsing. Upon hearing the screams, epoch security officer, Daryl Robertson, aged 20, who had recently won an employee award for his dedication to guest services. Jumped in, attempting to help and went into a convulsion as well. Within seconds, three young men were in the water, all unconscious, and fighting for their lives. Howard heath and two others heard screaming and went to help. Heath touched the water, but by now the circuit breaker had apparently tripped because he felt no electric current. Heath and two other men pulled the victims from the water. Heath's girlfriend Paula Earl's a nurse from Indianapolis, administered CPR on one of the victims and directed others to do the same. Emergency services arrived at the October fest zone of the park. Benning was taken to Beth as to hospital, where he recovered and was released in a couple of days. In a sad, cruel irony, the rescuers, heathcoat, and Robertson died. But benning survived, the person who first reached into the water. The October 1st area of the park was emptied immediately enclosed off. But this wasn't the only tragedy unfolding. It's now 9 45 p.m. one hour and 15 minutes after the incident at the October fest pond. Tragedy again struck. Candy Taylor, a 5 foot 5 tall, 32 year old mother of two, was visiting kings island with two friends. They'd been at the park all day sipping beers and riding almost every ride in the park. Candy's Friends rode the flight commander while candy finished her beer. When her friends were done on the ride, candy bordered the flight commander. An intimate flight trainer ride with multiple two person pods on the ends of articulated arms. The ride would rise up and spin for several minutes. To add to the fun, a joystick was inside each pod where you could control the movement. If you have the stomach for it, you could perform a full barrel roll. Witnesses indicated candy showed no outward signs of intoxication. Though her autopsy would show a blood alcohol content of 0.30. Which is three times the limit allowed for motor vehicle operators in Ohio. Candy entered top number four on the road and closed the shoulder harness and lap bar. Ride attendance check both bars to ensure that they were properly locked and the ride began its cycle. Witnesses claim that the ride made four full rotations and candy's tub made no maneuvers. Then a performed a slow roll to the left, rolling through two rotations. On the second rotation candy fell from the capsule. Striking the ground, head first. Here is witness Gary Oakley describing what he saw to local news. She rotated one time and on the second time she started to go around. She was she was rotating left. And as she was as she was rotating left when the spot halfway around the turn, it just slung her out of the ride. She went ahead first and three or about 30 to 35 to 40 feet away from the ride. She was rushed to Miami belly hospital via helicopter. Where she was pronounced dead of multiple body traumas. At ten 34 p.m. park employees were baffled by both incidents. Employees had been working in the pond where heathcoat and Robertson had died earlier that same day. How could the water have become so deadly in such a short space of time? How did candy Taylor fall out of the ride she was locked into? Meanwhile, at king's island near Cincinnati, the investigation continues into two bizarre incidents that left three people dead. A 20 year old Cincinnati man in a park security guard were electrocuted last night while trying to save a third man who fell into a pond near the German beer garden area. Officials are trying to figure out where that charge came from. Less than an hour later, a Toledo woman was killed when she fell or was thrown from the flight commander, a twisting, turning thrill ride. Riders on the flight commander are restrained by shoulder harnesses, the accident marks the first time since kings island opened 19 years ago that someone has been killed on a ride. The park was open today, but the ride itself was closed..

"Spanish economy growing by 0.3% in the first quarter the estimate was 0.6% This is really interesting because there's a lot of focus on inflation there has been for many months and a lot of people talking about whether central banks are behind the curve when it comes to fighting inflation Are we starting to see economies roll over is a key question and do we see economic headwinds ahead I say this in the context of Spain because we got some inflation data that missed estimates yesterday and now we have this growth number that is missing estimates The Spanish government trying to bring down energy costs in that economy of course And we have seen European highs for inflation coming out of Spain so that is a very interesting theme to explore But that's the Spanish growth story linking it in with the global themes Let's get to the data and where we are right now stocks in Europe then up by 7 tenths of 1% the FTSE 100 up by half a percent The cacao on top by three quarters of 1% the ibex and the FTSE may both making decent gains So we are much stronger We're stronger across the European equity space but not quite as strong as the futures had led us to believe Dax features were certainly up by more than 1% We'll see whether the Dax opens that strongly when it does open it still remains closed right now So we're focused on the earnings stories we seem to have been managing to put aside The tech difficulties that we've seen overnight from Apple and Amazon in the U.S. big tech space and focus instead on the better sentiment that's been coming through from Asia We heard comments from the Chinese Politburo the timing of which seemed to be designed to support market sentiment ahead of a long break over in China So that's certainly something that lifted Asian equities MSCI Asia Pacific up by 1.7% and hang saying tech stocks up by more than 8% as we get towards the end of the trading day over in Hong Kong That's the story around equities then we have the Brent price at one O 8 30 so we're edging higher still on oil prices back up to some of those recent high levels up by 7 tenths of 1% there We've seen a lot of volatility of course of late in FX markets and a lot of dollar strength today we take a break from that theme the dollar is a little weaker down by four tenths of 1% The yen also getting a bit of a boost after all of those losses of yesterday but still around the one 30 mark one 30 30 is where we trade the Euro at one O 5 the handle up by four tenths of 1% and the pound is up by 6 tenths of 1% one 25 35 both of those bouncing back from what was dollar strength and elsewhere weakness in yesterday's session So that's a quick look at where we are on the markets Let us get into some of the stocks that we're watching this morning and for that let's bring into the conversation Bloomberg's kit Reese who joins me here in the London studio Good morning Two U kids Let's start with Ben Giza and what they had to say we'd heard of course Unilever and P and G already Yeah so there's big story with these kind of stocks is whether they'll be able to pass on price increases given the inflationary backdrop So actually with record it had a pretty strong report This is another company which was in focus during the pandemic given it sold disinfectant and all those kind of things we use day to day And so it looks like it has been able to pass on the price increases and this has boosted sales But if we look at the shares it's not a huge reaction this morning just down .3% and kind of keeps its shares roughly flat on the year But again the inflation story is definitely something to watch with those stocks going forward Yeah they've been talking about asset sales as well haven't they And we'll look for further details on whether that develops Let's get to AstraZeneca then we got numbers through and there's always a focus on COVID of course COVID-19 but also a focus on the way that COVID-19 distracted us so much from other illnesses and suspicions of other illnesses And that has been sad for those involved really sad for those involved and has had an impact on anybody making cancer drugs Yes definitely And I guess the story here is kind of what's next for Astra after pose in a post COVID world And I thought this was interesting given that the company sees revenue from its COVID medicines business declining by a low to mid 20s percentage point But it was actually the demand for cancer drugs that boosted its profit which beats estimates But again the shares aren't reacting particularly strongly this morning down .4% but maybe that's because they're up 20% this year So maybe nothing too much to get excited about in the report there Let's focus on BASF then This German business and there's a Russia link here What's the story Yes so this is a real macro story So amid this sort of uncertain backdrop of the war in Ukraine and the zero COVID policies in China People are wondering whether this is going to impact the company which makes chemicals The shares are .2% It kept its outlook and I guess investors will be looking forward to see whether rising input costs those rising energy prices will affect it given that it uses a lot to make these chemicals Okay thanks very much kit Thanks for bringing us the latest on some of these stocks that are on the move this morning So we've had a host of earnings but also the bigger picture theme a lot of positive sentiment coming through from Asia and that is lifting sentiment here in Europe as well It would appear Thanks to kit Reese for an update there on our stocks on the move Let's get an update on our top stories and.

"To issue a patch on Super Bowl Sunday. I said Super Bowl, they didn't. Which they said is highly unusual. Sans sek, they wrote expects that mass scanning and exploitation will happen within the next 72 hours. I saw elsewhere people saying within a couple hours. Under implications in their posting, they wrote this vulnerability has a similar severity as the magento shoplift vulnerability from 2015. At that time, nearly all unpatched magento stores globally were compromised in the days after the exploits publication, and remember, this is PHP. It's a few lines of PHP. So it's not going to take a high end reverse engineering rocket scientist hacker to figure out what got patched. And since the cat's already out of the bag, Sam sex saw no need not to show the full patch in their announcement which they did. It's just a I looked at it. It's a regular expression in a loop, string replacement, presumably to sanitize some dangerous user controlled input to make it un dangerous. The patching advice itself is sort of interesting. First of all, the trouble affects versions 2.3 .7 P two and earlier. And 2.4 .3 one and earlier of both the magento and Adobe ecommerce platforms. They're the same thing, essentially. Apparently Adobe paid 1.68 billion to put their name on it. According to, who clearly understand what's going on, Sansa said, sites running magento 2.3 or 2.4 should install the custom patch from Adobe ASAP. Ideally within the next few hours. Sites running ASAP, all right. Yeah. During the game, I'd like to stop turn off the TV. You've got no time to get this in. They said, sites running a version of magento two between 2.3 .3 and 2.3 .7 should be able to manually apply the patch as it only concerns a few lines of PHP source. And they said, and sites running magento 2.3 point three or below are not vulnerable. So this was introduced after 2.3, but between 2.3 .3 and 2.3 point later. However, Sansa still recommends they wrote manually implementing the given patch. And why not? Just do what Adobe wants you to. Although you could probably safely, although apparently I said this, you could probably safely watch the big game first..

"I'm not sure where this 0.3% THC came from. But that's what's in the farm Bill so that's what we're going to stick with. We'll take a step back for all the listeners out there and we'll look at the cannabis plant. Cannabis sativa. That is one plant. And that's broken down into high THC or often called marijuana or low THC often called cannabinoids or things grown under the farm Bill. So the important differentiation or distinction is that 0.3% if it's 0.3% or below. It's legal to grow under the farm Bill. If it's more than that, it's considered a controlled substance and is illegal and oftentimes called high THC products. So we're talking about the hemp itself, the plant. This is how the plant is regulated. If you're growing hemp and it's under this threshold, it still considered him. If it's over that threshold, is it considered high THC hemp or does it convert it distinction into marijuana? Does it go so far as to do that? Good clarification. Over 0.3% THC is considered marijuana and would be considered illegal in the plant. So we're talking about the same plant and different levels of constituents, apparently can be somewhat controlled by the growers, the growers can focus on the seeds, perhaps it bring out this low THC that they're looking for. Is that how they start out as a grower looking for a particular seed or is it in the growing process that they actually start to control that? Yeah, good point. Primarily in the genetics, a grower wouldn't want to use a high THC or marijuana genetic and then try to with environmental measures, keep that THC below 0.3%. They would go bananas virtually impossible to do. So it all starts with the genetics. But as with all crops and with all agricultural products, environmental factors do play a role. So let's say that a farmer started with a low THC high CBD genetics, but then maybe it got really cold a few years ago, we had huge freeze right around harvest time in Colorado. That cold would stress out the plant and could actually kick that THC level up above that 0.3% threshold. And I am not a farmer at all. I grew up in downtown San Jose, California and Palo Alto. I don't know much about farming, but I do have a lot of farmers that I've got to know really grateful for that through Appa and through my business. And it's really difficult to control this potentially arbitrary amount of 0.3%..

"What are some of the main definitions we can go with and kind of distinguish between some of those things just so people can get it clear in their head. Absolutely. I think that's a great place to begin. So cannabis sativa is the Latin or scientific name for the plant that people think of as cannabis marijuana hemp, et cetera I'm going to just use cannabis as that's the proudest and most inclusive term scientifically and otherwise people also use marijuana, including some state laws. I tend to avoid this term both because of its link with the war on drugs, as well as the fact that it was used in some of the initial prohibitionists campaigns against cannabis back in the 1930s in the United States and has some great systems xenophobic undertones that I'm really not fond of. Hemp refers to cannabis that has less than .3% THC in it, and THC delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive chimeric psychoactive component in cannabis causing intoxication makes people sleepy sometimes produce E four also has some pain relieving properties. CBD that which is then the typically predominant cannabinoid found in hemp by contrast is not intoxicating. It has some anxiolytic effects, so it would be incorrect to call it not psychoactive. And the place that it has shown the most therapeutic promise at this point is actually in treating seizures for orphan epileptic conditions like Gervais syndrome and Lennox gastaut and in fact authorization by the FDA of Epidiolex, which is a plant based CBD product made by GW pharmaceuticals was for those orphan epileptic seizure conditions. So we've now covered cannabis marijuana hemp, CBD, THC, on the legal side of things, just so listeners know hemp products in the United States. So, again, with less than .3% THC, are pretty widely available. The 2018 farm bill made these products semi illegal under federal law remove them from the controlled substances act where CBD products had been previously, but they still exist in kind of a legal gray zone in which the FDA says they want to regulate them, but they're not doing, in my opinion, a very effective job of that. Products that contain more of .3% THC. These still qualify as schedule one drugs under the federal controlled substances act, which means that they're criminalized at the federal level and that schedule one designation also currently states that that means they have no accepted therapeutic value in a high potential for abuse and misuse, which of course classes with the state laws, which have legalized cannabis for medical and in many cases adult use purposes. So it's a really tricky and complex space, as you can tell. Yeah, for sure. And I definitely want to circle back to some of that complexity later in our discussion. For now, you've mentioned THC and CBD as these two primary cannabinoids of interest and I'm sure we'll look at much of the literature related to those. But of course, when we take cannabis broadly, there are many cannabinoids, probably hundreds of these cannabinoids. How certain are we that the primary effects we see from someone that is consuming cannabis is down to say THC and why are those the things that we look at as these are the cannabinoids that we're going to isolate and work with? How did we get to that point? Yeah, that's a great question..

Peterson ahead of the recent data we get at 8 30 this morning I want to put that into some perspective though because we know that sales are booming across the board Compare that dough to a 5 year chart where you start to look at the trendline And it's actually booming in a really big way The question is is the momentum waning because as Dana mentioned stimulus the effect of stimulus is coming down To describe this on radio kirti we got a trend We got a pandemic We got a recovery and then a pop Is that all a fiscal pop Did you say fiscal policy retail big This has everything to do with the savings rate And for our radio audience essentially you have this major dip in 2020 when everyone was kind of holding on to their funds putting their cash under their mattress And then this major pop ahead of this huge trendline the question here once again comes down to the savings rate which is recovering from the highest in history even higher Tom than The Great Depression era Now it's kind of coming back down to earth So the question is do we continue to see this boom in retail sales Pretty thank you so much and we drive there to her outlook released this morning 2022 Poem goyal joins us with Abby gilmartin and really diving into the state of retail Put him can there be a repeat to retail in 22 Like we saw Poonam you're backdrop I mean which Bloomberg officer you in Not sure I think it's not in the market John we got to take notes here I mean you and I need a green screen I mean I've been treatment about having a green screen The backboard and the bedtime Yeah you know it's great What would I be just wonderful You set a camera up at the end of the bed to wake up and just do the show That's what we're doing right now We're learning from you every day Teach us about 2022 retail What will be the distinction I think there will be two parts to 2022 The first half we think we will continue to see the boom that we saw in the latter part of this year However as you move into the second half I think retail sales could slow again because people will not be shopping in stores as you saw them this year We think the real shift will be towards online And it'll be more material next year So all in all if you start to see rates rise which we think will be a key indicator for consumer spending next year we think spending could derail a little in the back half The common idea right now is that consumers have looked through the inflationary push and continue to buy more and spend more in case there is any concern about a waning consumer appetite Are there any signs under the cover that that's starting to shift Right now no If through the holidays we've actually seen robust demand And the one thing I point to is promotions right Typically in holiday you're looking for a lot of promotions great deals larger discounts This year we didn't see that in stores They're very discounts but they weren't as high as they've been in And consumers are still purchasing And the trend from November as far as we've seen has continued into December Is there a bifurcation puna in the level of the items in terms of how expensive they are for luxury goods stores doing well and the walmarts and targets of the world having a harder time passing along inflation or is it very broad based Right now it's very broad based I mean we saw it in the number that Walmart and target recently top line has been off the chart across the board for retail The concern really is margin That's what we're all concerned about for four Q and moving into the first half of next year You've got an outrageous call that in three years we will have 50% of apparel will be online How does luxury do that How does for example Celine drive everyone to online So it's not luxury It's more apparel So if you think about the Macy's the Nordstrom the American eagles the lululemons those are the resources that we think will make a bigger push towards online And some of them are already there Nordstrom's at over 40% of their business is online So they're already making headway We heard from Nike 50% of their sales come from online over the next few years or so How does Amazon not so much defend against that but how does the Amazon do apparel if they haven't done it before They're already doing it Amazon fashion We don't know the numbers but we know that it's doing really well and they're gaining momentum Amazon across the board You know it's about convenience It's not about price It's about the third party provider bringing new inventory onto the platform every day And that's what

Santa's ban on mask mandates in schools as being banned ruling in by Judge John Cooper, also in sanctions against school districts, which instituted those mandates, at least for now. Discussing his ruling, Cooper said. The state is picking and choosing which part of its own law it wants to enforce. Every single witness who testified who is a practicing medical doctor in this case, said that Children Are at risk, and they provide at least some protection by masking. There's nothing in my final judgment that prevents the defendants from enforcing the fall. Bill of Rights. I'm just saying you can't enforce part up, which is what the evidence shows. It's a parent's bill of rights and how much did they say of protection and what's the danger? Or someone. For example, there's that study out that that cloth masks give you zero protection. And surgical masks. 11% protection. So you take that And you ask yourself what's the danger for a child and wearing a mask? You know, psychologically and etcetera, etcetera. And you've got to wonder if this guy is just, uh Cook.

"Politics. Joining me now is Dave Missed Ege, Senior reporter for West Virginia Public Broadcasting. Dave. Welcome to the takeaway. Good to be here. So I just characterized Senator Manchin is a little bit of a honey badger doing what it is. He wants to do being independent. But what does he in fact care about? I'm sure he cares about something. I mean, I think genuinely, he does care about the state of West Virginia. I mean, I I think that if you if you talk to talk to Joe, uh, Senator Manchin, you'll hear oftentimes I'm saying that You know, uh, he, uh, if there's a vote in in in Washington, he has to come back to West Virginia and explain the reasons for voting for it to his constituents. And I think that You hear that? Time and time and time again from him. Um, And while I think you know his voting record upsets a lot of people, including A lot of progressives here. Um, and even some, sometimes, you know, people in the middle here, um, you know, he He really genuinely does believe that he has to has to justify every vote that he that he takes here to the people. I feel it can be tempting, especially for maybe national observers and commentators to describe mansion is really lacking anything in common with Democrats, but that does feel and to see your insincere to me. I want to take a moment and listen to him talking back in March about the minimum wage on this week. President Joe Biden knows how to get a deal done, and the bottom line is there is not one Senator Olive 100. It doesn't want to raise the minimum wage. 7 25 is sinfully low. We must raise it. I agree with President Biden when he says, If you go to work every day, you should be above the poverty guidelines. Well, the poverty guidelines to be above that if you're going to work and working full time should be at $11 base. That should be your base. And then we index it with inflation. To make sure it never gets back in this political conundrum we have right now. It shouldn't be a political football. So there's a senator making a case for raising the minimum wage. But he's also making a case that kind of $15 an hour is untenable. So so is this about like mansion lacking political courage, or is it that everyone else is sort of lacking? Good political sense? Don't know. I mean, I think one way that Joe mentioned can be could be described at least, um, you know, in his own way of thinking is is that he tries to be pragmatic about everything. Um, I think that clip right there. Examples the way that Joe that Senator mansion. I guess it tries to, um Tries to hedge between two different sides and try to tries to find the middle between two different arguments. So I think that you know, that's just one example of many that you'd hear from him. So, Dave. I kind of love that. It's almost hard for you to keep calling him Senator Manchin that you slip into Joe because that suggests to me that he must be sort of. You know, I live near West Virginia, but not in West Virginia. It suggested he might be kind of a friendly guy. A pleasant person to be around is that part of his charm relative to you know the huge margins by which he is reelected regularly. Right. Well, I mean, I think that you know, and I've been trying to catch myself as a matter of respect her and I'm glad you pointed that out, but, uh, yeah. I mean, I think that you know, the senator is very personable. I think he's really approachable. Um You know, I think And you you mentioned these these large margins. I think it's it's important to point out that in 2018, you know, he had a primary challenger and Paula Jean Swearengin. Very progressive candidate who want to 0.30% of the vote. And I think that for a lot of people here in the state that was a moment where people realize that Maybe he wasn't able to be taken down in his in his seat. But there was definitely a realization that there was a movement. Um I guess in a direction other than him, maybe even against him so Um, you know when, when when people talk about? You know, uh, you know, Senator Manchin security in Washington and in the Senate. I think that you know, that's a That's a very complicated answer. And maybe not sort of a yes or no, whether or not he's saved. I'm wondering about this difference that we hear between kind of pragmatic, bipartisan reach across the aisle Senator mansion in the way that he self describes versus Senator Mitch McConnell saying, Look, 100% of our people are together and we are all trying to stop. Biden agenda from moving forward. Again. Does that suggest that that mentioned really is pragmatic or is he sort of not realizing the Senate that he's currently part of as opposed to, you know, maybe a Senate that operated differently 20 or 30 or 40 years ago? Well, I'm not so sure about that. I mean, again, back to the back to the beginning. It's like, you know, I said that you know, Senator Manchin has to come back and justify everything to the people of West Virginia. And I think It's important to realize that he is the only, you know. Statewide Democrat in the state. As of now, I mean West Virginia's extremely red state at this point and and leans conservative on most issues. And I think that you know, Senator Manchin has always kept in mind. Um you know what? What The will of Of West Virginia has been like, um, and the way that his constituency is leaned, Um That's not to say that, you know, he's voted, uh, counter to that at all or encounter, too. You know, a wider group of Democrats and their priorities, But I think it's important to keep in mind the way that the state looks here in West Virginia, Um And I think that you know, with all this national media attention on Senator mansion at this point, there's a lot of people that I see either on Twitter or I talked to in person, and they're kind of flabbergasted by the you know the amount of attention all this is getting because mansion Has always been a character to, um, to sort of complicate things or or to run counter to what most people would expect, you know, just given his political affiliation So I'm just wondering for West Virginians if it's also surprising to find yourselves as the fulcrum state, the focus of so much national attention. Yes, I mean, I think that you know, and I'll speak for you know other other reporters here. I mean, I think a lot of us feel like we're the The Joe Mansion whisperers when, when, at the same time. It's It's, uh, You know, it's not, um it's not as as complicated to people here as it is to the to the national media. But at the same time, that's not to say that there's not a lot of people here that are fascinated by the amount of power that he's wielded in the The effect that he's had on on.

Uh, yeah. Great day. I love Green Bay, but I think the only way it's gonna I'm going to run the table. I'm certainly on I'm on the Roger fan wagon. For sure. My problem is the A F. C because I really like three teams, one of which I pick before the season started, which was Baltimore who had their ups and downs during the season, but are taking up trending up right now, which is a good thing. That's what you want heading into the playoffs, So I'm Still holding out hope that they can make a run and get to the Super Bowl. Kensit. He has been a bastard. Mahomes had proven he can do it. Buffalo and Buffalo. Buffalo has been scary. Good. So any of those three teams can go a NFC I like certainly Roger's best. But if not Roger's more than your New Orleans more than Seattle. Brady is impressed me the last couple of weeks. I don't see them being better than the tops report Top two or three teams in their division. I tell you one thing you look at Ball from what they were. They weren't over of 11.5. And I like that. I made a move on that when they were six and five, I was already out of the wood. And then I looked at their schedule is and look at this. They're gonna run the table. And and make it to 11 and five with a full game winning streak in the end, because they weren't playing. You know anybody, but they also righted the ship. So yeah, I do see them as they Buffalo and Baltimore in different ways can attack and the city and give him a game of sea playoffs. You're gonna be great, Solly. I appreciate it. I'm going to run to that. You got it. I want to get Frankie up here before I get out of Dodge. Frankie.

Then then, then that Whiteside falls down the first down marker. And I'm saying to myself Well, is this was at the high 0.30 31 minutes to go. The Giants were away because I got so confident when I saw them down, 10. Not tonight. It was like a lead balloon because going and I said, well, the Giants He never waited Philadelphia so absolute used to Philadelphia Prime to you always winning. Here's the good news for you. Giant fans. You did two things here in the last couple weeks of the season, you beat Philadelphia. Who'd you lost 28 consecutive games. You beat the Cowboys. Would you had lost 27 confected of games?
