24 Burst results for "5.8 Million"
A highlight from Top 3 Reasons for Solana PUMP (Best Crypto of 2024?)
"Today we're talking about one of the top performing altcoins from the last bull run, Solana. With a token price of under $2 at the start of 2021, Solana ran all the way up to $260 in November of that same year. There's no doubt many crypto traders made life -changing money with this project. The question now is can Solana do it again? Should it be in your crypto portfolio today or has it been forever tainted by FTX and SPF? That's what we're going to answer in today's video. By now we all know the story of how this once mighty ETH killer took a brutal bankman -free beat down after FTX collapsed. But is it all over for Solana or is there still some fight in this thing? Now if you ask one of the many die -hard Solana holders out there, they'll probably tell you that there is no need for a Solana comeback plan because Solana never went anywhere. And while there is some truth to that, it's also true that Solana is a long way from its glory days. After Solana put in its all -time high of nearly $260 on November 6, 2021, and then crashed hard when FTX went belly up. Finally found a bottom when it hit $10 in December of 2022, but since then it's been more or less range -bound between $15 and $25, with the current price around $25 at the time of this recording. It's over 100 % recovery from its lows and still a 10x from its January 2021 price. However, it's still down 90 % from its all -time high. So today I want to tell you about three key areas where I see Solana making bullish moves. If you want to understand what these new buzzwords mean and why they are relevant for the next couple years in crypto, be sure to stick around until the end of the video and hit that subscribe button. Before we dive in too deep, what is Solana? Well, the short version is that Solana is a layer 1 smart contract platform that uses a unique consensus algorithm called Proof of History to validate transactions. It's designed to promote high scalability, throughput, and speed above all else, not the FTX speed. Now, although speed and scalability are really important, they often come at the cost of decentralization and security. Vitalik's famous blockchain trilemma poses these as competing objectives for any blockchain ecosystem. Remember, there's always trade -offs when it comes to network architecture and design. Different blockchains are designed to do different things. I won't get into the weeds on this, but I think it helps to know what Solana is designed to prioritize. It's no secret that Solana was the favorite crypto project of crypto made off a polyamorous Bahama Beach boy, Sam Bankman -Fried. Sam and a lot of other VCs were heavily invested in Solana. FTX and Alameda Research were holding a combined total of about 58 million Solana, or about 11 % of the circulating supply at the time FTX filed for bankruptcy. SPF was a particularly vocal spokesman for the project, even firing off tweet storms to defend the project when it experienced frequent outages in 2022. Okay, that's a little bit of the brutal history, but what's the rest of the story? And what's still happening with Solana today? As I said, they're hyper -focused on the scalability. Solana has such a high performance that they claim to be enabling new classes of applications that were previously impossible. The Fire Dancer upgrade, a new validator client being developed by Jump Crypto, will increase Solana's speed to over one million transactions per second. One million. The upgrade is expected to arrive sometime in late 2023 according to the Jump Crypto website, and that's got to be bullish no matter when they release it. Not only that, but by certain metrics, Solana hasn't had to sacrifice security in order to achieve these incredible throughput speeds and volumes. Masari published a report in June analyzing decentralization amongst different chains and gave Solana an aggregate Nakamoto coefficient of 1 .9, higher than many of its competitors. I know everyone still remembers all the outages Solana had in 2022, but those incidents haven't recurred in a long time, and the ecosystem continues to grow anyway. The Solana Labs team, led by Anna Tolley, also laid out a six -part plan to improve the network in February of this year, and it's been hard at work implementing the plan already. I'll drop a link down in the comments if you want to take a closer look. A big part of the plan is something they call DPEN, or Decentralized Physical Networks. And I want to start with this because it's one of the most ambitious and revolutionary things going on in Web3 right now. The objective of DPEN is to make Solana the leader of the new physical internet of things. They started building this by getting Helium and Render Network to migrate over to Solana, and by launching Saga, the famous Solana phone we've all heard about but probably haven't used. Okay, so what exactly does this mean? Well, Helium is a decentralized and distributed internet network of user -run nodes, and Render Network is a protocol for distributed GPU rendering. So the idea is to create a decentralized tech infrastructure to compete with the centralized legacy systems. That's right, this shot is aimed directly at the tech power players that run the internet today. I'll admit, this is a bit of a long shot. However, while it may be a large undertaking, it solves one of the world's largest problems of digital governance. If Solana pulls this off, they would have a blockchain -powered version of the internet, a rendering network, and Web3 phones. And again, they're just getting started on this. Hard not to be bullish on a suite of product offerings like that. Especially if these start to gain any market adoption in the next full run. Another innovation that Solana rolled out recently is something called state compression. State compression is a cost -saving data storage solution that makes Solana even cheaper to use. The technicals of how it works are pretty elaborate, but they use Merkle trees to make it possible to mint one million NFTs on Solana for about $110. This takes a lot of friction and costs out of the equation for NFTs and should make them a much more attractive technology for projects and legacy businesses to adopt. You guys know that I'm pretty big into NFTs personally and even minted on Solana over two years ago. So I'm excited to see if this kind of scalability will take things to the next level. The next area I want to touch on might be the simplest, but also the most important, payments. Solana co -founder and CEO of Solana Labs Anatoly Yakovenko discuss how he and Solana are focused on this in a recent episode of the Validated podcast. I'm actually more focused on trying to do stuff that's obvious today. I think that's just like really, really, really important to try to get users to go do the things that already work at scale. And those are payments, very, very simple kind of thing. Let's send money to each other in a cheap and fast way without, you know, like around the world. And it's just such a better experience for anyone that generates user content. So the problem though, is that because it's such a pain to deal with finance on the web, these platforms are able to aggregate it, aggregate power by like creating these rails for a large number of content creators. They own the content, they own the creator's financial relationship between the creator and the user. They own that rail and they own that connection. And once they own it, the creator doesn't want to leave. It's like a, it's a kick in their revenues, right? They're not like working for themselves or working for Twitter or for TikTok or whatever, because all of the financialization happens through these platforms. In August Solana announced that it integrated with Shopify for USDC payments. This is a huge deal because Shopify accounts for over 444 billion of global economic activity. The cost of a SolanaPay USDC transaction is 0 .00025, which is way cheaper than the one and a half or two and a half percent fees that credit card companies charge and way faster as well. About a month later, Visa announced that it was expanding its stablecoin settlement capabilities with USDC on SolanaPay. Visa started pilot programs with merchant acquirers, WorldPay and Nuve. These companies process debit and credit card payments for businesses globally, and their clients may now use USDC stablecoin settlement instead of receiving fiat currencies. Now, if all that isn't enough to convince you to start calling Solana the comeback kid, then maybe this will. Solana has integrated with ChatGPT. I know that sounds like the premise of a Black Mirror episode or something, but they did it. There is now a plugin that will allow the AI chat bot to check wallet balances, transfer tokens and even purchase NFTs. The plugin is open source and can be downloaded from GitHub, and I'm sure it will only be used for good things. The Solana Foundation also announced it would increase funding for grants exploring Solana and AI to $10 million and claims have already received over 50 applications. I can't wait to see what they come up with. If you can't get enough of all things Solana, I recommend you check out their conference. The third annual Breakpoint Conference is being held from October 30th to November 3rd at the Solana campus in Amsterdam. The event will feature developer workshops and tons of interesting panels as well as keynotes from the like of Google Cloud, Circle and Star Atlas. Sounds like a great place to learn even more about the great Solana comeback plan. Okay, I know that was a lot, and truth be told, we're really only scratching the surface here, so the question still remains. Will Solana be able to be a top performer again? We'll have to wait and see, but it's clear that Solana Labs and their developer ecosystem have been hard at work this bear market, which is what you want to see from a project. There are almost too many developments, improvements, and innovations to keep track of them all. It looks to me Solana is still very much alive, but it's not clear yet just how much market share they're going to be able to claim and defend in the next bull run. There'll be new challenges for sure, but Solana has a pretty impressive suite of offerings and a lot of fiercely devoted fans and a strong team of VCs and developers. It'll be really interesting to see how things play out for them. All that being said, I do feel Solana is worth holding in your portfolio and accumulating for the next bull run, especially in the current price range. It's one that I hold in my personal portfolio, and I have high hopes through 2025. Finally, I'd like to say do your own research. I highly recommend checking out BitLab Academy. That's all I got for this one. Let me know down in the comments if you think Solana will claim the title of comeback king. In fact, give me your next bull market prediction. That's all we got, and we'll see you at the top.
"5.8 million" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"The 5.8 million new business application filed nationally happen in the state of Florida. A lot of that happening in South Florida. We've got a breakdown of one of the hottest real estate markets in the country on the other side. This is Bloomberg. Bloomberg radio on demand and in your podcast feed. On the latest edition of the Bloomberg sound on podcast we speak with former ambassador Daniel fried about the Biden administration's decision to begin training Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets. It's not a U.S. led or U.S. only effort. The Dutch, the Belgians, the Danes and the British have been involved in this. The Dutch prime minister within the hour has just tweeted his appreciation of the U.S. joining. So this is this European group. So what you have here is not the U.S. hanging out all alone ahead of our reluctant allies. Sometimes in the case. You have the allies actually taking the lead in the U.S. backing them up. That's actually a good signal to send to the American people. We're not alone in this. The allies are European allies are putting their money where their mouth is. They're putting in the resources. This is a good thing. Yes, it will take a while to train the Ukrainians. But this war is going to last a while. And the significance of this move among other things is that Europe and the United States are not about to give up on Ukraine or push the Ukrainians into a bad negotiation on Putin's terms because we're tired or bored or moving on to something else. What's happened is the transatlantic alliance, the free world backing up Ukraine as Russia's military offensive fails and as Ukraine gears up for its own counterattacks. Guaranteed to

"When I'm cooking. I have the timer right here and I just bang. You know, three minutes a side of him frying some chicken steaks and so that's probably the main thing I use it for other than healthcare stuff, right? Tracking my sleep, tracking my heart rate. Second text though, it's a really cool, I don't know. I can see it becomes a bigger part. Can I ask you something? I want to go back to how you started that. Is this really Tim Cook's last hurrah? And do we need to start thinking about an apple post Tim Cook already? No one know. I don't think it's his last. It's one of his last. I think the last will probably be the car. And so no, I'm not already thinking. Of course, actually, I am thinking about a post Tim Cook Apple, but this is not something that's going to happen in the near term, right? I mean, he's in his early 60s ball buyers in his early 70s and he's still at Disney and you get the sense that they're built kind of similarly in terms of their desire to be part of the company, right? I would guess that if Tim Cook does eventually step down or win Tim Cook eventually steps down, he'll probably still be on the board or maybe they'll make them chairman or something, right? And he'll come back after a successor fails. Oh, I don't know if his successor will fail. I don't know who successor for sure will be. But I think that I would just guess that Tim Cook would do a better job than bob liger in terms of planning out a succession plan there, right? I mean, it felt like the bob Iger transition and his departure at the height of COVID was extraordinarily abrupt. I would imagine that apple's succession plan will not be as abrupt as. Who do you think, Mark? Who are the people in the running to be his successor? You know, there's four people right now that I have my eye on. Number one is Jeff Williams. He's the COO. He's in charge of all the health initiatives. Company-wide operations in the design team reports to him now and he led engineering for the Apple watch and he's quite intimately involved with this headset project as well. And he's essentially the chief decision maker on new products at Apple. And so he would be if Tim Cook were to step down in the next three years or something were to happen or they needed to do an emergency succession plan. You don't look further than Jeff Williams as the next CEO. A few other options on the executive team right now are Greg joswiak. He's an Apple life urban there for three decades, head of marketing, head of product management, a real key player, probably a top three or four key player on Apple right now. Deirdre O'Brien, she's been at Apple also for over three decades. She's been in many roles across the company from head of retail to head of human resources to senior executive on the operations team. She's also someone that I wouldn't be shocked if she were the new CEO. And then there's John Turner. John Turner, he comes up because he's the youngest member of the Apple executive team. So if Tim Cook weren't to retire for 8 more years, you want someone a bit younger and he's head of hardware engineering. That was Bloomberg news chief technology correspondent Mark gurman, with me and Matt Miller. You're listening to Bloomberg businessweek, coming up why a place long referred to as Manhattan south is increasingly living up to its nickname. We had 12% of the 5.8 million new business application filed nationally happen in the state of Florida. A lot of that happening in South Florida.

The diamond ways 10.57 carats, the color is actually purplish pink, Alexander eblin with auction house Sotheby's calls it ultra rare. The color itself is formed through a deformation of the crystal. It's a very mysterious process. The diamond was discovered in 2019 in a mine in Botswana. This is astound that is set to be the most valuable pink diamond ever sold at auction.

"Our worldwide audience, equity future 6.21, a little bit of a higher open this morning, but the stories in the yield space yields are steady ten year treasury yielding 3.93% the yield on the two year treasury is 5% for negative spread of 107 basis points that's the largest inversion since 1981. How about that on the commodity front WTI crude oil is lower? Just under $77 a barrel, gold a little bit lower just under $1820 an ounce and Bitcoin steady just above $22,000 per token coming up on the program. We'll get a market outlook from Amanda agadi of PNC asset management. Right now let's get some color on some of that pre market equity trading with Bloomberg stocks reporter Jess mint and Jess, what are you looking at? Well, there's a number of important individual movers this morning Paul, so the first one I'm taking a look at is Kimball chemical industrial company Occidental Petroleum that's ticker symbol. Now its stock is up more than 1% pre market after a new regulatory filing did show that Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway added to its already large stake in the company over the past trading sessions. And so the conglomerate bought nearly 5.8 million shares of the oil company and a few separate trades on Friday Monday and Tuesday that does mark the first time since Buffett hiked his bet since September on that company. So that is something to watch this morning. It's my attention. Exactly. Another one to watch looking over at Tesla ticker symbol TSA shares of the automaker they're down more than 1% pre market after Tesla was downgraded to hold from buy at Berenberg. The investment firm did say there was less room for disappointment after a heart start hot start to the year for those Tesla shares. Obviously, when you think of that doubling from that low it made in early January, another big mover today though, looking at cybersecurity company, CrowdStrike that's ticker symbol, C RWD. So the cybersecurity firm, it climb nearly 5% pre market, it did post stronger than expected earnings for the fourth quarter and it did give a first quarter forecast that was above analyst consensus estimates. And the reason it's important, there were a lot of concerns Paul lingering about how the cybersecurity market was cooling, especially after cash strapped companies were curbing their spending. Let's stock up nearly 20% this year, so seeing a big move with CrowdStrike. And then lastly, we did see, this is a smaller company, but it's WWE internationally formally known as weight Rogers. We saw a huge surge yesterday that was up nearly 80% yesterday that was its best gain since 2015, but if you're looking to day that stock down more than 10%, what happened was it was cut to sell from hold at Craig hallum. So they did say that that big rally we did saw yesterday. It was a surge in response to the company's acquisition of that telehealth provider sequence, but they think that that was basically an overreaction. So that stock down more than 10% pre market Paul. Oprah Winfrey owns 1.1 million shares away. She does. Indeed. Good to know. I don't even know what to make of it because Paul, I'm looking at it, and I mean, you know, it spiked twice over the last 15 years, but basically it's a hundred to 7. Yeah. Which, you know, I mean, it's not a Doug Jones component. I get that, but it makes a splash. Spiked on that, you know, back in was it 2018, I guess on Oprah, you know, taking a big investment. That's why somebody doesn't take it out or something. Exactly. It's a brand if nothing else. It's a brand. Yeah, unless someone billion. Okay. Just met. Thank you so much for that. Thanks, Jess.
Bird flu costs pile up as outbreak enters second year
"Is no end in sight to the current outbreak of bird flu. And that means no relief for the spike in prices for eggs, chicken, and turkey. As the bird flu outbreak enters its second year, consumers pay at the grocery checkout intensifies. Egg prices shot up to four 82 a dozen last month. More than double the year before. A pound of chickens nearly four 50. Nearly a dollar more, and turkey costs about 50 cents more per pound. An agricultural economist is estimating poultry farmers lost more than a $1 billion, and the government spent about half a billion, trying to address the bird flu, with some 58 million birds having to be slaughtered. One researcher says there is some hope for improvement this spring, with new turkeys and chickens, hopefully developing

"Traffic in the mall. Various voices weighing in on the situation in China, socks are taking a battering this morning. You will see when the futures are still negative and WTO has fallen to the lowest level since December of last year. Well that may not be the last test of Beijing's ability to adjust its COVID policy. Let's head out to Bloomberg opinion columnist Clara Ferrer Marquez. Clara in your opinion piece you start off with a concept known as Tucson and chess in a situation where you're forced to make a move, but every move actually makes it worse. Talk to me about the political tooth swung that the Chinese premier is facing. That's right. It's really a very problematic situation possibly the greatest test since he came to power about a decade ago. It's a political trap of his own making. He can not really very quickly ease COVID restrictions as a number of your guests have already said today because if he does that, you'll have hundreds of millions of infections with China is ill equipped to manage its hospitals are just not equipped. Of course, if he doesn't do anything, we don't maintain things as they are. You're likely to see the protests spread and the economy will continue to suffer. Yep, and we certainly have run the numbers at Bloomberg if they do step back from this COVID situation. You look at 363 million infection 5.8 million intensive car bad. So that is a big risk to roll.

"5.8 million" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"I'm also going to say, I took for me personally. I took the pacers and blazers off because I've talked about them kind of to the point of people are tired of it. Here, so I picked three different teams. So my first one, the Chicago Bulls. The bulls are 25 and ten. They are now two games up on both the nets in the box. They've won 8 straight in the east. They're starting to close in on the jazz sons and warriors just a little bit for the best record in the league. And the bulls don't look like they're going anywhere anytime soon. They look pretty pretty solid. And now I say that is, there may be a piece or two away from you starting to look at them as like, man, this seems legit. And they could contend. The other thing why I have my eye on the bulls is they have the ability to make kind of a big move without hurting their current production levels. Okay. Because you're not going to trade Lonzo, you're not going to trade. Derozan, not Caruso, those are kind of your key guys. Around those guys, though, this is some of their tradable salary that they could move. And then none of them individually is all that great. But you start stacking them together, they start to look pretty good. So I'm just going to kind of give them to you in alphabetical order here. But Tory Brown junior, 5.2 million, Derek Jones junior, 9.7 million, Kobe white, 5.8 million, and Patrick Williams, 7.4 million. And so I'll talk them in pieces. Brown and Jones combined, you're already at almost $15 million in alcohol and salary. That's pretty good already for two guys that are kind of fringe rotation, guys. They're in and out of rotation. But if you had Williams or white who are also value plays for an acquiring team as young players that at least have a couple more years left under contract especially Williams, now you've added not only matching salary, but you've added some value. They're a little shy on draft picks, that part is a little bit tricky for them to come up with. They got to get a little creative in the way they were those because it would have to be. If we've delivered to Orlando and delivered to San Antonio, then we could give you this. But that's something you can do with creative language on those, but I would think Williams is a guy know a ton of teams like. And if you're the bulls, I think you've got to look at it and say, do you want to try to live in two worlds or we're pretty good right now, but then we've got these young guys that can help us move them forward or do we really want to push in and go all in and go for it? We just talked about Jeremy grant. Another guy I think it would be great for them is Harrison Barnes. Yes. Very easily acquirable. Always. Every year. I know right in there some board is going to be for 20 teams this year. But acquirable guys because of their numbers. And their play in positional fit. Also important there in Chicago. Because I feel like they need one more, more true power forward sized player to help them out. So I have them at the top of my list. All right, let me add to it. The Atlanta Hawks..
"5.8 million" Discussed on Yanks Go Yard: A New York Yankees podcast
"I never considered this a possibility to be honest with you because I thought he always had value. He's making what like I think it's a projected 5.4 million. Somewhere between like 5.4 and 5.8 million, which is like not bad for a guy who's been above league average at the plate whenever Blake well above league average at the plate whenever he's healthy, but this is from Lindsay Adler of the athletic who's a trusted insider for the scheme. She's got a lot of insight. And her, quote, in the article about the Yankees shifting infield, there were a lot of things in there. So go read that from the athletic, you're gonna there's possibility of DJ layer becoming full-time first baseman. It's supposed to be possibility of DJ Lemay who becoming a full-time third baseman. There's a possibility of, you know, maybe Voight coming back. Like it's crazy, but her one quote was, quote, Voight was marginalized after returning from the injured list after the trade deadline and would seem to be a non non tender candidate as he's projected to make more than $5 million in his second year of arbitration. So and guess what? She did not preface this with Anthony Rizzo coming back. She did not preface this with another first baseman coming on board. She prefaced this just by Luke voigt existing. So that's why now I kind of have a concern about this because look, you're the Yankees. Perfect word there, marginalized. Voight was marginalized. He was healthy. They could have fit him in the lineup. They opted not to. He got playing time returned to him and Rizzo went on the COVID list. Proved himself that he could still perform then the Yankees still told him to kick rocks. And we're good, thanks. Yeah, they tried to trade him at the deadline. They didn't do it. Like, at that point, if there was even a consider, if you're looking ahead to the off season like at this point, you probably know your non tendering him or not at the end of July, right? Or like this thought process doesn't change in August and September because if the thought process were to change, boy would have changed your mind with not ten non tendering him because he performed well, aside from the times that you gave him four days off number like, hey, Luke, do you mind pinch hitting in the 8th inning? Us down by two with the bases loaded. That would be great. Thanks. We'll see what you could do. You haven't had enough bat in a week. Or even worse, we're down four nothing. And there's nobody on base. You want to go up and rip a Homer? Oh, you struck out trying to rip a Homer? You look like a big old loser. Yeah, thanks. Cool. So it would be a bad luck if he's not tendered because you can't tell me the guy doesn't have any sort of trade value. I'm not saying he's gonna fetch you a top ten prospect. I'm not saying he could get your reliever. This guy's a starting baseball player if he's healthy. I understand that the health is a big question, but health is a big question for a lot of key players, especially ones coming into this free agent class. So if you're talking about a cost effective first baseman who hits well above the league average when he's on the field, non tendering him would look so bad. He's not gonna be here next year. I think we can all agree on that. Whether Rizzo's here or not, the Yankees are gonna figure something else out. I think they go for a lefty here..
"5.8 million" Discussed on The Cedric Maxwell Podcast
"To play here. It's one of those things where if you're the New York Knicks, it's like if you don't spend it, you're gonna lose it and the fournier just made the most sense, right? So I guess I'm gonna say it's a good idea, you know? Yeah. At the end of the day. You told me I had to make a choice. I would say it would be a good idea. Agreed. All right, let's head back home. Set back home back. Is it back to Boston? Dennis Schroeder. Best contract going to leave if you ask me 5.8 million. One year. Yep. You guessed it. It is the big bag. It is not the big bag, but max is it a good idea for the Boston Celtics? Oh, yeah. To get a player who was reportedly worth 84 million and you get him off the junkyard for 6 million. All right, well, he's still young. The player. Let me add a caveat there to this, right? Because the report indicating that problems last season with the Los Angeles Lakers had a lot to do with him, you know? Without mentioning names, there was a report saying that he was a bit selfish and that he was a bit of a locker room problem in that. Come on, man. LeBron, you all know, we know LeBron runs that camp, Ron and AD, that's their basketball. I was thinking that I can't see an ancillary player coming in and being that disruptive to the Lakers system. I mean, come on, they just don't know. So don't try. Don't try to sell me that bill of goods. I mean, you lost your team beat you, beat your ass, and now all of a sudden you're trying to kick shriller into the bus as if he was that piece. They do not have jump shooters. There are a lot of guys. There are a lot of times we saw LeBron James not get back on the defensive end. Or we would call Anthony Davis. I love Charles Barkley's name street clothes, you know, he wasn't available to play. So that's just not blame that is true there for all that. Agreed. Agreed. And even if there's a little truth that I'm gonna go with the guy who wants to prove to the entire NBA that he's a max guy. Give me that guy, and then on top of that, the guy who used to idolize ray John.

"On Pulis and Covid. And you also had some really, really good reporting done by CPR Ben Marcus recently that ties into what I had some of the investigative reporters from the Gazeta and to talk about Before. Which is he folks? Colorado had the worst nursing home deaths in America. In December from Covid, and it's not just December we had a stretch. We had a stretch from November through January. Where are nursing homes were getting decimated, and I'll give you the numbers are nursing homes were getting Decimated and that was directly traceable. To a complete meltdown, a collapse by the police administration. In two critical areas. Testing and contact tracing and the contact tracing was so critical because when that collapsed and it collapsed in October, when that collapsed than people who had been exposed Two people sick with Covid weren't told about it. Which was part of this big explosion of covid in nursing homes, the breakdown in testing and obvious consequences and then some of the great reporting done by Ben Marcus. You know, expanding on what The Gazette had done earlier, because because that was on the show talking about how wait a second They were reporting that Jared Police Had gone for testing in Colorado at the end this critical time frame. Had gone to this 20 something college dropout. Who had started this This company. There was doing some testing and I would think that anybody just looking at how he was doing, it would have to say if this isn't going to work, and this was self administered mouse swabs for the most part. And, uh, yeah. How's that going to work out in nursing homes? Do you think but in any case Then you got to the issue of whether these tests from this this college dropout, you know whether these tests were even reliable and listen to this reporting. I think this is absolutely blockbuster and tells you everything you need to know. About police in his level of competence, and then it raises other questions. We need to tackle together, but Pulis ends up paying this failed company. Ends up paying this failed company. $90 million. For a few months of this testing $90 million What data? Ryan, You're super sharp mind. I'm sure you're going to go right to the number. Actually, you're not because you think very logically and logic will not lead you to this Promised land, Deng it What data? How many sample test From this new startup company by this college dropout. How many sample tested the police administration have access to before they committed Colorado's testing regime. To this start up company run by a college dropout and paid him 90 million bucks. How many did he have access to? When they committed in theory, you would hope all of it 100% total. Right? I asked support questions. So how many prior tests Conducted by this startup. It did. Police have access to Before making that commitment to all of them should have had access. But what number would you want to see? Like, how many tests would you want to have seen done by this startup and done successfully before his governor of the state of Colorado? You know what? I'm committing the lives. Of of Colorado, nursing home patients and other Coloradans and 90 million bucks for just the next short period of time to this startup, how many tests to see a statistically representative sample of the population of Colorado? Whatever that number is, and that's that's the Colorado's population about 5.8 million right now, so nobody could be critical of the governor for making that commitment after 100,000 tests. Maybe 50,000. I think that would be a little light at 50 myself. But of course, no one can be critical of 14. 14 Oh my 10 11 12 13 14 So Polish commits Colorado, Colorado's health. Colorado's testing. To this startup from some college dropout. Why? After 14 testers it was it to save money. I'm trying to get to motive here. Oh, great..

And it turns out that in April existing home sales across America surged 33% year over year and prices were up 19.1% year over year. The latest existing home sales report from the National Association of Real Tours also shows 2.7% dip month over month. Let's talk about the latest numbers now and what they mean to you with Lawrence Yun, the chief economist at the National Association of Real Tours, Lawrence, Welcome to real estate today. Hello is Stephen. Thanks for having me on the show? Well, Lawrence, we're so glad you're here, so we had a little dip month over month. But a huge surge year over year in existing home sales.

I mean, if we can hold at this level, it would mark the highest sells activity and 14 years, So it is a good level. But it is no longer that above six million annualized pace that we've been seeing an autumn of last year along with him in the winter, months after accounting positional factors So the situation is that we don't have enough inventory and therefore home cells are not clicking, and that is clearly reflected and this record pace of home price appreciation. Of course, that you said Lawrence, the biggest limiting factor is the number of homes for sale. And just the other day I was talking to the National Association of Homebuilders, and they say that they're getting better and better and better and building more homes. Will they be able to meet the demand the builders they are moving in the right direction. I've been hearing that there is some difficulty in hiring new people in the logging industry at the stall meals. So some of the production cause are rapidly rising, presenting some challenges for home builders, but nonetheless they are able to pass on those costs to the consumers. Just putting the escalation price had added cost to it yet there a still able to sell the home and the demand is still strong. About 33% of 40% of homes currently sold are above this price. This a phenomenal multiple offers price escalation. Demand is strong. We simply need more inventory.

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles and I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington. The U. S is racing to vaccinate as many people as possible against covert 19 about 31 million doses have been administered so far, which means the country still has a long way to go to contain the virus. And one limiting factor could be the supply of new doses. When we know the two companies that have emergency authorization so far, Fizer and Madonna they are supposed to deliver 100 million doses each by the end of March. That's according to the federal contracts. At the current rate, though both companies would have to ramp up production to meet that goal. NPR pharmaceuticals correspondent Sidney Lumpkin is here to tell us more, He said me. Good afternoon. Okay, So we have this goal 100 million doses each by the end of March. Can these companies meet that given? Neither is making enough right now. Well, according to the federal government, they're expected to reach that goal, but they're both going to have to make a lot more doses every week to do it. Last week, Each company released 4.3 million doses of vaccine to the federal government this week. Madonna is pulling ahead and releasing 5.8 million doses. That's according to allocation data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Meanwhile, Fizer is lagging behind at about 4.4 million doses on Lee 70,000 more doses than the previous week. And what is the holdup? Why are they liking So it's not entirely clear? But I asked a Wall Street analyst named Geoffrey Porges at Spb Lyric, he says Fizer has spread itself thinner than Madonna has. Visor is committed to delivering considerably more doses outside the US than Madonna in Europe. Visor had to cut back on weekly deliveries last month, which made some countries like Italy really angry, But porches told me he's still confident advisers ability to hit its goals, he said. It wouldn't be making these big commitments if it didn't think it could meet them. But again if Fizer is already behind now, and they're supposed to be ramping up, how's it gonna work? It's a good question, because if it keeps releasing the same number of doses at the same rate as this week, the company would fall around 30 million doses short of its goal. Even Madonna will need to start releasing more doses to the United States each week on top of the ramp up we've already seen. Andy Slavitt is a senior adviser for the White House Covert 19 response team, and he spoke about this at a briefing last week. Visor and Madonna are committed to delivering a total of 200 million doses by the end of March, with much of it coming at the end of the quarter. So will accelerate. So that is what the White House is saying. What about the company's? What do they say? Well, when I asked them for more details, they didn't say much. Madonna reaffirmed that it will hit 100 million doses on time, but didn't provide more details about production from week to week. Visor didn't respond to my questions. Historically, there hasn't been much transparency when it comes to vaccine supply. Here's Glen Nowak, a former director of media relations at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We saw this and I was at CDC in 2004. When we had a flu vaccine supply shortage. We had a hard time then getting accurate information about how much vaccine was going to be available went And they had sort of similar transparency issues in 2009 when the shingles vaccine was in short supply, and just real quick, the other vaccines in the pipeline. There are two more that just released data this week. That was pretty positive. Johnson and Johnson and Novavax AstraZeneca is expected to release data soon and we could be looking at if the FDA approves these three. You know, more supply coming. In the next months. All right, fingers crossed fingers, toes and everything that Sidney Lumpkin, NPR's pharmaceuticals correspondent, Thank you. Thanks for having me. Myanmar's military staged a coup today and detained the country's de facto leader on Song Souci. It is the latest turbulent turn in that country and a return to detention for sushi who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. She was put under house arrest after the military refused to accept the results of the previous year's election that saw her party win an outright majority. She later became the country's de facto leader after the military decided to loosen its grip on power in 2011, and well, she remains popular within the country internationally. Her reputation has suffered. Joining us now from war is Laurel Miller, director of the Asia Program for the International Crisis Group. Welcome. Thank you. So you know me. Amar had been on a path towards democracy. What? What exactly led to this military coup and this detention for Souci? Well, first, I think it's important to recognize that man. There was still evolving as a democracy, and I think we have to say it was Partial democracy in which the military already had enormous share of power in the country. So I think this makes your question even more pointed one in which we have to wonder. Why was the extent of control that the military already had? Over Myanmar. Not enough. I think we have to look Tioga Couple of factors won the November 2020 election in which young sons hooches party won. An overwhelming victory was a pretty stinging and perhaps humiliating defeat for the military on also, there is seems to have been perhaps a personal factor here with animosity between Young sons, Hoochie and Thekla Andr in chief who is scheduled to end his term in the middle of this year and perhaps thought that he would have some kind of landing pad in politics. Can you talk a little bit about Su Chi's history as a public figure in Myanmar and And what led to her initial detention Well. Her initial detention was sparked by the first time that her political party won an overwhelming electoral victory, and that was in elections that were held in 1990. That result was then nullified by the military, and she was put into house arrest for almost 15 years out of the period between 1989 and 2010. Then after the transition towards democracy began about a decade ago, her party then won a landslide victory in the next elections that were held in. These are huge. Victories that demonstrated her personal popularity. Aside from her political party's popularity, well internationally, Souci has come under very heavy criticism for what has been happening to the Rohingya in Myanmar. Can you talk about why So much of the international community lays the blame at her feet? Yeah, I mean, there is an enormous distinction between her enduring popularity at home and the demolish mint of her reputation internationally and in the West, in particular as a result of how she has handled the rigging issue..

Can these companies meet that given? Neither is making enough right now. Well, according to the federal government. They're expected to reach that goal, but they're both going to have to make a lot more doses every week to do it. Last week, each company released 4.3 million doses of vaccine to the federal government. This week, Madonna is pulling ahead and releasing 5.8 million doses. That's according to allocation data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Meanwhile, Fizer is lagging behind at about 4.4 million doses on Lee 70,000 more doses than the previous week. And what is the holdup? Why are they liking? So it's not entirely clear. But I asked a Wall Street analyst named Geoffrey Porges at SPB Lyric, He says visor has spread itself thinner than Madonna has. Visor is committed to delivering considerably more doses outside the US than Madonna in Europe. Visor had to cut back on weekly deliveries last month, which made some countries like Italy really angry, but poor just told me he's still confident advisers ability to hit its goals, he said. It wouldn't be making these big commitments if it didn't think it could meet them. But again if Fizer is already behind now, and they're supposed to be ramping up, how's it gonna work? It's a good question, because if it keeps releasing the same number of doses at the same rate as this week, the company would fall around 30 million doses short of its goal. Even Madonna will need to start releasing more doses to the United States each week on top of the ramp up we've already seen. Andy Slavitt is a senior adviser for the White House Cove in 19 Response team, and he spoke about this at a briefing last week. Visor and Madonna are committed to delivering a total of 200 million doses by the end of March, with much of it coming at the end of the corner. So will accelerate. So that is what the White House is saying. What about the company's? What did they say? Well, when I asked them for more details, they didn't say much. Madonna reaffirmed that it will hit 100 million doses on time, but didn't provide more details about production from week to week. Visor didn't respond to my questions. Historically, there hasn't been much transparency when it comes to vaccine supply. Here's Glen Nowak, a former director of media relations at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We saw this and I was at CDC in 2004. When we had a flu vaccine supply shortage. We had a hard time then getting accurate information about how much vaccine was going to be available went And they had sort of similar transparency issues in 2009 when the shingles vaccine was in short supply and just real quick, the other vaccines in the pipeline. There are two more that just released data this week That was pretty positive. Johnson and Johnson and Novavax AstraZeneca is expected to release data soon and we could be looking at if the FDA approves these three more supply coming. In the next months. All right, fingers crossed fingers, toes and everything that Sidney Lumpkin, NPR's pharmaceuticals correspondent, Thank you. Thanks for having me. Me and Mars military staged a coup today and detained the country's de facto leader on Song Souci. It is the latest turbulent turn in that country and a return to detention for Suki, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. She was put under house arrest after the military refused to accept the results of the previous year's election that saw her party win an outright majority. She later became the country's de facto leader after the military decided to loosen its grip on power in 2011. And while she remains popular within the country internationally, her reputation has suffered. Joining us now from war is Laurel Miller, director of the Asia Program for the International Crisis Group. Welcome. Thank you. So you know, Myanmar have been on a path towards democracy. What? What exactly led to this military coup and this detention for Souci? Well, first, I think it's important to recognize that man. There was still evolving as a democracy, and I think we have to say it was a partial democracy in which the military already had enormous share of power in the country. So I think this makes your question even a more pointed one. In which we have to wonder. Why was the extent of control that the military already had over Myanmar? Not enough? I think we have to look Tioga Couple of factors. One The November 2020 election, in which excellence hooches party won an overwhelming victory was a pretty stinging and perhaps humiliating defeat for the military on also, there is seems to have been perhaps a personal factor here with animosity between Young sons, Hoochie and Thekla Andr in chief who is scheduled to end his term in the middle of this year and perhaps thought that he would have some kind of landing pad in politics. Can you talk a little bit about Su Chi's history as a public figure in Myanmar and And what led to her initial detention Well. Her initial detention was sparked by the first time that her political party won an overwhelming electoral victory, and that was in elections that were held in 1990. That result was then nullified by the military, and she was put into house arrest for almost 15 years out of the period between 1989 and 2010. Then after the transition towards democracy began about a decade ago, her party then won a landslide victory in the next elections that were held. These are huge. Victories that demonstrated her personal popularity. Aside from her political party's popularity, well internationally, Souci has come under very heavy criticism for what has been happening to the Rohingya in Myanmar. Can you talk about why So much of the international community lays the blame at her feet? Yeah, I mean, there is an enormous distinction between her enduring popularity at home and the demolish mint of her reputation internationally and in the West, in particular as a result of how she has handled the Rohingya issue..
"5.8 million" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say how many winners we've had, But we did have winners four of the last five days on this program, including Jack from Franklin. Who was listening in the 9 A.m. hour. We didn't have much of a 10 A.m. hour on Friday, but in the 9 A.m. hour, Jack was listening. He texted in and his text was picked. At random. So Alex Lazaridis is, of course, mark last three son Well last week, he posts on Twitter that he was lucky. It was pure happenstance. It had nothing to do with the fact that he is a well known guy in the Milwaukee community. That is, Daddy has more than a billion dollars or anything like that was pure happenstance. You see his wife's Cousins, neighbors garbage man's third cousin's wife's friend's dog groomer. Knew another rabbi. Who just happened to have some other covert vaccine. It was the weirdest thing and out of all the people. I mean, apparently, there is nobody who goes to this synagogue who's over the age of 65. There is nobody who has any underlying health conditions that would make them more susceptible to covert vaccine. And there is apparently so much of this covert vaccine lying around that did you know? The emergency plan for distribution under I mean, nobody can figure out how exactly Evers is distributing that this vaccine. Nobody's quite sure what is getting criteria really is Nobody's quite sure where you go to get a covert vaccine. Nobody's quite sure where you get an appointment. But apparently the protocol is if you've got extra You give it to 33 year old billionaires, boys. I mean, this just makes sense, because what I have always said, is that the wealthiest and most powerful among us should have special privileges. I mean, that's how this country was literally founded, right? That the wealthy the landed gentry. What's amazing to me and was absolutely hysterical about this story. I mean, it should be maddening. And, of course, kidding about America being founded on People whose dads have a lot of money like Alex Lazarus being able to jump in line. I mean, for the love of God, Don't you think your own father should get it before you? You talk about the ultimate and selfishness. His wife's pregnant, So I don't think she's going to get it because there is some concern. Yeah, she denied the vaccine. Like the true gentleman. He is. Alex pushed aside every single senior citizen frontline worker teacher, everyone he knew. You know who Alex last reiz jumping in line to get this coded vaccine. He's the bad guy from Titanic at the very end, where he kidnaps that little girl so he can get in the lifeboat, he says. Please I'm all she has in the world. That's literally Alex Lazzari. Rich guy who is refusing to say women and Children for no, No, no. Me first me. Don't you understand? I'm important. I need this vaccine. Apparently, Alex Lazarus is the only human being in Wisconsin. Statistically speaking, who has gotten the cove it vaccine now, I'm not sure if he's gotten both shots, if if the rabbi's cousin's dog groomers college roommate Actually had two separate vaccines lying around. But you just I just imagined Alex Lazarus walking into a back alley. Kind of kitchen. Like a man. I'm desperate. You got any of them Covert vaccines. I'll make it worth your while. You want some bucks tickets? For 2023. We can we can actually have fans. My goodness. So apparently this guy, they this'd this is the saint literally the same guy who has been saying, You know what we all need to do better. We all need to be selfless, and then we can have fans back at Buck's games. We need to do better on Corona virus. I have never seen the self sabotage of the U. S Senate run before the guy even announced that he was running for Senate. He was on another radio station last week. And he was asked flat out. Hey, are you thinking about running for the Senate? He said, Yeah. You know what? You know People have approached me. They've approached me with offers to get the covert vaccine and I said yes, of course. How many covert vaccines? Do you think Alex Lazarus has Do you think he's like hoarding them? No, no, no. What I'm saying is, he's like it's like mad Max. Worries like riding around the tundra. Offering covert vaccine that he stole from this poor rabbi just waiting to sell him. He's like sitting there. You see his dad and Eden's Mallory Eden's with like machine guns guarding their horde of covert vaccines. Yeah, Of course. They think this is what you have to do, folks. This is the larger point I've been trying to make here on this program is you need to turn these people into the jokes that they are. Alex Lazarus is a joke. He is not to be taken seriously on anything. He is a nepotistic hire a nobody who would be doing absolutely nothing except living off the beach with Daddy's money. But Daddy decided, okay, I'm gonna buy him this toy this bucks. Franchise, and now this guy is seriously being talked about. Well, you know? You should run for Senate, Alex. There is zero chance. Yeah, I think with all the stuff that's going on with games stop right now. It's gonna look really great that a billionaire's boy is getting the covert shot before anybody in Wisconsin when I mean anybody, I mean anyone If I asked you How many people in Wisconsin as a percentage of the total state's population, which is about 5.8 million. How many actually have been vaccinated. That means a two shot cycle. Producer Dave says 4%. 1.7 Percent, and we just crossed the 1% threshold a couple of days ago. We have just crossed the 100,000 Mark. People getting the full cycle of shots to be vaccinated against Cove in 19. All right. 1.7% In a month. Wisconsin has been in the bottom three states. Based on data collected by Becker's hospital review for covert vaccination pretty much since the vaccines started being rolled out now. Initially, the Evers administration was blaming the Trump administration in early January for not providing enough vaccines. Hebrews gave an interview to reporters or a press conference press gaggle something like that where he said, We need more vaccine. We're not getting enough vaccine. Evers administration has managed to administer just 45.64% of the vaccines that they have been allocated the doses that they've been allocated. Just 9.3%. Of total Wisconsinites have even received one shot. When you break it down by age group The numbers are even more alarming because the people who are most susceptible to the virus people over age 65 33 year old Alex Lazarev, People don't realize this..
