Apple Daily Increases Print Run as Hong Kongers Queue to Buy Paper
"We must press on, said the chief of Apple Daily newspaper as he was arrested. At the end of last week, the journalists on the best known pro democracy paper in Hong Kong carried on producing and writing. They also sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Some Hong Kong has elected to show their support by buying 10 at once and then just giving them away. But for how much longer Last week's actions by the Hong Kong authorities are making it very difficult for the newspaper to carry on to remind you, its owner, Jimmy Lai, is in jail, serving a sentence for unauthorized assembly and senior staff at the paper are being held at the moment, it's feared the paper may not survive for long, like a matter of days. Mark Simon is an adviser of the owner Jimmy Lai. The government has frozen the access to the bank accounts. They've frozen any interaction with the bank account, so they and they've informed Hong Kong banks not to deal with Apple daily. So basically the situation is the company is up, unable to operate its bank accounts, and that's basically that's as bad as it gets. But I mean, you're a large company, 600 employees and so on What's on the agenda for the board meeting, then right now that sounds like the agenda for the board meeting is going to be basically how to work to get the accounts on frozen and then what's the progress there? But it's not really a decision that I think Apple Daily is making. It's not really a decision that's on our side. That's really the decision on the government side at the Security Department wants to open, let The paper operate. That's fine with them. That's fine with us. If not, there's nothing we can do you It's they've cut off every every vehicle and every venue for us, they say if they don't if they don't unfreeze the bank accounts can you carry on operating? I don't think I don't see how nobody can carry on operating without financial, you know activity. In other words, if you can't conduct your business, how do you carry on operating? Uh, it's illegal action. It's illegal, also in Hong Kong. In other words, you can't contract for services or tell employees to work without the ability to

Jeweler Alex and Ani Files Bankruptcy After Rapid Expansion
"Jewelry company alex and ani has filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection the company which was known. Pretty much only for bangle bracelets. The company blames cova mostly and it's clear that's a factor like in twenty twenty. Their revenue fell forty percent but his company's financial struggles started long before this pandemic began. And i'm just going to tell you a tiny bit about things that happened because this has multiple layers so a couple of things that became roadblocks for this company. So in december of twenty eighteen bank of america cut off the company's line of credit. Oh and the day ah-ha yup and the following summer alex and ani sued for gender discrimination in claim that it had been treated differently because it was led by a woman that suit which was dropped a month after it was filed said that sales had declined around eighty million and the alex an anti couldn't pay vendors so there's a red flag even if they like settled this Alleged discrimination claim. There's a clear financial disconnect here. There was also illegal. Back and forth last year between the company's founder carolyn rafi allen and investment firm lion capital which owns the majority of the company. Apparently she borrowed five million dollars from line capital and never paid it back shift. You just sometimes forget to pay back five million lisa. She just forgot and to resolve the legal battle between them. She sold her remaining stake in the company to them which was thirty five percent. Holy mess so as of last year. The founder of this company was no longer involved so the company is also in a whole like metric ton of debt which is really what it comes down to like ultimately when you're filing for bankruptcy doesn't so much that you need to figure out they owe money to a bunch of landlords which makes sense you know malls and stuff during the pandemic they also more than one hundred seventy five thousand dollars to an entire town in rhode island

Why Are There Un-Indicted Co-Conspirators Regarding January 6 Charges?
"Is, if you read the charging documents with the people charged with this January 6th the trespassing charges up at the Capitol and some other charges that are more serious. When you read the indictments, there are a number of people in the indictments who are quote unindicted co conspirators. What does that mean? Why does it matter here? How does it relate to America? Harlan saying white supremacy is he number one threat to the homeland? Unindicted co conspirators. Who are they? Why are they unindicted if their co conspirators? I mean, if I'm a you know me, Mike and producer Jim, we're out. God forbid conspiring to rob a bank. And we all get arrested. We should all get indicted and go to federal prison for bank robbery Correct. So if you read a charging document in that charging documents laying out the case against me And it says, you know, Dan and producer Jim and unindicted Co conspirator three were on the phone. Well, why are Dan and Jim going to jail and unindicted co conspirators? Not Well, the most likely answer folks as people cooperate way the federal law enforcement operation works is when you arrest people you think you can use you can sign them up. You sign them up with their attorney to cooperation agreement. They agree to do a B and C Whatever a B and C maybe. Making recorded phone calls to other targets showing up with a wire on producing financial documents. And then the government agrees to engage in a plea agreement. Typically, I'll plead to a lesser charge or even no charges at all. Sometimes that's the way it works. So why are there so many unindicted co conspirators in these January six charging documents? It's not a conspiracy theory. You can read the darn documents yourself there right there in the revolver piece.

Bitcoin OG Explains How to Keep an Open Mind
"Our guys bang bang. I've got eric here with be doing. The sir makes me on for sure. let's just jump right into. I think was probably one of the most interesting things that you've been spending time on since last time we had you on the podcast which is shaped shift has essentially transformed itself. You've completely ripped out all the centralized infrastructure and you really turned into this new model Where it's an interface to all these decentralized protocols just like what exactly does that entail wide you do it and how's it going so far. Yeah so for. Most of our history shapeshifts was essentially an exchange or we would take one coin from one person in send a different coin from us trade with us and it was non-custodial and that we didn't hold any balance but we were essentially an intermediary to each trade and in twenty eighteen. That's what got us all caught up in all of the financial regulation in which we had to impose. Kyc and I would call highly unethical surveillance on people which we've been fundamentally opposed to So we've been searching for a way out of that you know we can't break laws but i also don't want to spy on people and i don't wanna be a branch of the government surveillance apparatus to how do you have you square that and the way we square. It is by integrating decentralized protocols now so we no longer are an intermediary in any way we do not trade with customers We are no longer a financial institution and that means that we do not need to. Kyc people it means that we do not need to act like a bank and we can let users trade directly against these decentralized protocols in a really really cool way so we've completed that transition now and as of april fifteenth tax day. Ironically we are fully fully out of that mess
Will a US Digital Dollar Protect Privacy?
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday june fifteenth. And today we're talking about a us digital dollar and specifically whether a future digital dollar will preserve privacy center bank digital currencies. Have been one of the key undercurrent of this show for basically as long as i've been doing it as i've said before and i'll say again. Ultimately the breakdown is about shifts in power particularly economic power. The question of central bank digital currencies is absolutely one of power and that question runs on a few dimensions. There is the question of the power balance between states. The best example of this is china whose digital yuan efforts are at least in part an attempt to extend the sphere of influence of their native currency to internationalize the r&b and claim a larger status as a global settlement currency and world reserve asset. Smaller nations are likely to as well looked to digital currencies chess piece and reimagining where they sit importantly this won't always lead them to their own native digital fiat's as we've seen in the case of el salvador there may be compelling reasons to instead look to a non-sovereign non-aligned independent money as well. But there's also a key question of the balance of power within states specifically between state and non-state actors is having the ability to create currencies in the first place. This is a power historically monopolized by the state however private actors sometimes companies more often now. Decentralized networks are taking on that role in an increasingly significant way. It was after all facebook's ill-fated entrance into the cbd's space with its libra announcement that acted like a global starting gun for every government to take seriously the future of their currency as digital and of the global powers. No one took that threat more seriously than china and it wasn't just facebook that they were concerned.
Republicans to Introduce Censor Resolution Against the Squad for Contributing to Anti-Semitic Attacks
"Group of Republicans This is from Breitbart will introduce a sensor resolution to condemn and censure the so called squad. For defending foreign terrorist organizations and using rhetoric, which contributed anti Semitic attacks across the United States. Now you would think this is not controversial. We're talking, of course about centering Omar. An AOC and Talib and Presley. But it is controversial because this is the heart and soul of the Democrat Party. And the Republicans. The group has led by Michael Waltz of Florida. Good guy Jim Banks, Indiana. Claudia, attending New York. She's great to remember they tried to steal the race from her. The resolution says the squad members of defended foreign terrorist or I didn't hear the attorney general talk about this. I didn't hear that fake phony fraud. Merrick Garland talk about this. As the late great Bob Grant would say. The central resolution says the squad members have defended foreign terrorist organizations. And inciting anti Semitic attacks across the United States. And so forth. The group of Republicans wrote in the resolution that Talib has accused the Israeli government ethnic cleansing and claimed Israel was promoting racism and the human humanization. The resolution meant his Omar calling the Israel military response to Hamas strikes an act of terrorism rather than self defense. She also accused the United States are backing crimes against humanity. This is why Judy Jazz, Ceron. I want you to listen media it. Your low IQ Cuba phones, media matters you low I Cuba phones.

Why Is the Fed so Boring?
"If we were grading on a curve these extremely boring and wooden speeches given by federal reserve chairs these actually represent shocking level of sharing and openness. This is according to sebastian mallaby author of the man who knew the life and times of alan greenspan if you go back to the early one thousand nine hundred eighty s. The central bankers almost didn't communicate at all with the markets and with the public. They were changing rates. They wouldn't even tell people there. Yeah there was near press conference.

Its super tempting. For central bankers to exercise the awesome power. They have when they do communicate with the market. And there are amendments when the economy is really in the dumps and the need to stimulate it but of course there are two sides to the open communication coin derian case in point the taper tantrum. The tape attention. It happened in two thousand thirteen years. After the worst of the housing crisis was the economy is growing. Jobs are coming back all of the money that the fed has been pumping into the economy for years. That have worked. Things were stable but then fed chair.

From latin america the middle east and it just hit me that while i was watching multiple a muffler content the ma languages which speaks some of them It occurred to me that. Why in the world are we dubbing movies in a higher actors voice rather than dubbing the movie in the original actors. What's good my thoughts in that. Well let me see if we advocated the actor's voice and make them speak as if they spoke that look language via the american actor and we we produce to the movie to europe in france or in italy. Why can't we make him speak. Italian or french in the is the original accent and that made me think about the well. Let's let's take it on. And i looked at the market i. I the markets with multiple providers including dubbing studios and so on and at influence identity the like the right timing and sure enough by the time we should point today. That is the i demand for this kind of application while certainly a love division Back then and i love the watched a lot of movies and always interesting when a voice gets dubbed over in. it's like it does not match right it's it's a great use case in a great example.

Solution is compared to others but That's what brought us to the banking in the and we have seen quite a bit of disability from multiple multiple multiple businesses for our solution would actually inactive conversation with the number of those you speak and not only that but also integrated with the likes of genesis media into their services and In order for us to buy out solution to the customer so we are actually out in the market with that kind of our with our technology for the banking industry and other a call center as well as a this assistance provided.

"It will shell out an extra one hundred million dollars a year on technology more mergers of regionals are likely Betsy grace egg an analyst at Morgan Stanley notes a death of banks with assets between five hundred billion dollars and seven hundred billion dollars. This leaves plenty of room for banks to merge and stay below the feds putative new threshold that said Mike mayo an analyst at wellsfargo believes there are few potential partners with an overlap that would yield the savings promised by the tea and some trust. Of course, even that deal has risks. Mr. mayo points out that attempts to merge incompatible back office systems have proven disastrous in the past.

They are one and the same back of America Merrill, Lynch coming out indicating that look make sure that you everybody continues to buy on the dip. So we gotta be buying. This is not a time to stop buying according to Bank of America, Merrill, Lynch. Now, what would you expect them to say stop buying? I mean think about this. I think it's even a little bit crazy that these headlines even appear stating the obvious that any brokerage is going to say, of course, they want to keep buying and they want you to buy on the debts. They want the fear I to set in. So that you will sell to drive the market's down. So that they in other institutional buyers will come in and buy on the dip. The question is will that happen during this tip? Do I think there's going to be another by? Being. Run here. Look one of the biggest problems right now. As far as I'm concerned as far as overhangs in the markets are going to be US, China trade U S, China trade or continued away very heavily on on the markets. Right now, the notion that President Trump yesterday, Sade President Trump said yesterday that he is does not think that there is going to be a meeting between he and president Xi of China before the March first deadline. Now, I can guarantee you unless the president comes out and says something. The volatility of the market is going to increase every day. We get closer to that. Mark March first deadline. The president needs to come out and say look the March first deadline was a goal for us to get negotiations complete. He needs to say it looks as though the goals. Here are not going to be met. This is a very complicated negotiation far more complicated than we had hoped. But we want to get a good deal and the right deal. So we are going to continue negotiating and in the meantime, we are going to postpone or delay. Again, these additional tariffs going into to affect. So we're going to take that March first deadline, and we're going to extend that to the end of March. To, you know, April whatever, but I think that would be just keep what little stability we've had in the markets would keep that stability there, which take out the uncertainty of could it be possible that we are going to allow these. This states come and put those twenty-five percent tariffs into effect. I sure hope not I don't believe that would be the right thing to do. But. I'm not the president. So I'm hoping that we see that. We did get a little bright spot coming out of the zone. German exports did increase a little bit in December. And I gotta tell you something that's about the only bright spot. We've got in the entire global economy is that German exports increased, but the four months drop their industrial production as far gonna that's gonna that's going to outweigh this particular number as markets dropped why they dropped on renewed worries over U S China trade offs. So as far as I know Steve Mnuchin lighthouse are negotiated still heading to Beijing for for talks next week. So we'll see what materializes rapid fire Friday. We'll be right back after this. Hi, this is DNC where you're from financial issues. Like every ministry, we need to raise support to continue in the work that the Lord has for us to do in ways that we do that is we ask you to support the ministry by becoming a partner with us in the ministry..
