Open skip press conferences on the grounds of mental health. And how upsetting. These press conference proved for her mental health yesterday. Simone biles dropped out of the all around gymnastics competition because she felt she was not mentally ready. Bios who's arguably the face of the united states olympic games. And probably the best gymnast we've ever seen has done something. We used to seeing an olympic athlete. Do what she did runs counter to the sport ethic that elite athletes should play through. The pain should focus only on winning and adhere to a championship mindset. We're taking your cause. Asking what simone biles did. Yesterday was an act of that surpass what it takes to win a gold medal. The numbers eight seven. Seven three zero one three. Oh one eight nine. Seven zero eight seven seven three.

And we're a long way away but is perhaps recognizing the travails even know. These superstars helped to get us a little bit toward that parody again. Eight seven seven. Three one. Nine seven Oh what do you think jad for. I think this falls into a couple of different categories. One we as a society find ourselves having ownership of anybody who's in the public spotlight and especially olympians right now. We we expect. I think to some degree. I'm saying the collective we that we have this ownership of of individuals and we expect them to to to go out there and do what we expect of them. And so i think it's so incredibly brave. What simone biles. Naomi asaka have done. Because i personally think that part of athleticism a great part of this is your mental game Equate that to running marathons. And i would argue that. It's sixty percent mental and forty percent training and athleticism. Because when you get out there you just have to sustain yourself and we know from all facets of our life..

The events of the last few days from athlete mental health as josh said in the intro to news conferences at big sports events to the treatment of black and women athletes the way athletes express grievances on the way that sports authorities respond to them. But i want to start here with the observation. That is pretty banal. But i think encapsulates all of this. This whole episode just feels so profoundly sad and also so utterly avoidable. Yes i think you know first and foremost like everybody. I hope that now asakusa okay and on the road to getting better getting healthier and getting the help that she needs at this point. You'd have to say this seems to be much more about her health than media access. Post-match press conferences so clearly tennis can wait for another day.

What Are The World's Biggest, Baddest Jigsaw Puzzles?
"Even before. It became a popular way to while away the hours days and weeks during isolation putting together. Jigsaw Puzzles was a favourite family activity. But did you know that? Jigsaw Puzzles have their origin in education. Sir John Spills Berry an English engraver and map maker in the mid. Seventeen hundred is credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle in seventeen seventy six by attaching a map of the world to a piece of wood then cutting the country's out teachers used the maps to teach geography to their students and a recreational activity was born spills berry would hardly recognize his creation today in the early part of the twentieth century. Jigsaw Puzzles were used as marketing tools often given away or sold for mere pennies today companies. Still use puzzles for creative marketing. Take Kodak for instance. It's selling what it. Claims is the quote world largest jigsaw puzzle. We HAVE TO ADMIT. This thing is pretty huge. The fifty one thousand three hundred piece puzzle features twenty-seven injuries from around the world and when completed measures twenty eight point five feet by six point. Two five feet. That's eight point six meters by one point nine meters and this beast costs more than four hundred dollars but all due respect to the Kodak Jigsaw puzzle. The world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area. According to Guinness World Records was put together in Dubai in July of twenty eighteen. The puzzle was an honor of the year of Ziyad a year long tribute to the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. The late Shahid there are more than twelve thousand pieces in the puzzle which was an image of Zayed the official record size measured sixty five thousand nine hundred and five point one seven square feet which is six thousand one hundred twenty two point six eight square meters putting together. Jigsaw puzzles is a Greek group activity but one thousand six hundred students of the University of Economics Ad Hoc Human City in Vietnam took it to the next level. When they completed the jigsaw puzzle with the most pieces on record five hundred fifty one thousand two hundred and thirty two to be exact when it was finished the puzzle measured just over. Forty eight by seventy six feet about fourteen by twenty three meters. It took the students seventeen hours to create the massive puzzle which featured a lotus flower with six petals. But what about the hardest jigsaw puzzle? Ever it contains only nine pieces and it's called the puzzle nine it was designed by Asaka. It includes a small board. The nine pieces include right angles and curved edges. That fit together in several combinations. Think Tetris but way harder. The challenge is getting the last piece to fit. It's nearly impossible to fit all the pieces on the board. It took Chris Ramsey a magician video creator and master puzzle or two hours nine minutes to solve the ice nine and by his own description. He was completely exhausted. By the end of the experience. You Sokha created another equally. Difficult puzzle called the Jigsaw Puzzle. Twenty nine the challenge here is to fit twenty nine pieces into a five by five inch. That's twelve by twelve centimeter trae. It comes with five corner pieces. Just let that sink in. Then there's the largest hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzle Guinness record held by Dave Edmunds England. Who created a forty thousand seven hundred sixty three piece puzzle celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the puzzle which featured thirty-three Images of Jubilee celebrations was twenty by eight feet? That's six by two and a half meters. When completed though it collapsed soon after Evans completed it took him and force. More than sixteen days to rebuild the puzzle and move at Sandringham where it went on display and was confirmed as the Guinness World record holder. We spoke by email with Caitlin vesper records manager with Guinness World Records North America. She said one of the main criteria for all Guinness World Records titles is that they must be breakable. Every record titled S- monitored is open to being challenged which allows for all kinds of record breaking opportunities all over the world. The Guinness record for most Jigsaw puzzle pieces tattooed on the human body belongs to the aptly named enigma. Sometimes known as Paul Laurence. Who'S A sideshow performer? Actor musician originally from Seattle in two thousand eleven enigmas set the record for having two thousand one hundred twenty three puzzle pieces tattooed on his body from head to toe in no word on whether anyone comes close to second but many puzzle records are held by companies such as the record for the largest spherical jigsaw puzzle. It measured fifteen point seven feet. That's four point. Seven seven meters in circumference and it was made by unit industrial limited in Hong Kong and featured scene from Winnie the Pooh vesper said brands and businesses. Come to US looking to harness the power of record-breaking to commemorate anniversaries and celebrations or to highlight the launch of a new product. Whole communities can come together to attempt to record to a like in March of two thousand nineteen when more than one thousand seven hundred people formed the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece on record a I. The record raised awareness for autism spectrum disorder. The puzzle pieces the symbol for the autismspeaks organization. Vesper explained each Guinness World. Records title has a set of guidelines. That must be followed. The record for the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece is a great example to highlight. This is considered one of our largest human image categories and the idea is to have a group of people gathered together to form a recognizable image. We define a jigsaw puzzle piece as an oddly shaped interlocking and Tessa leading piece designed to be part of a larger picture. The human image to be created would need to be instantly recognizable as a puzzle piece and not an entire puzzle. This record title can be broken if another group creates same image with a larger group of people. Anybody up for the challenge.
Rumors point to a Resident Evil 4 remake
"A remake of resident evil four is already in production according to rumour I feel like the show has turned into a focused resident evil rumour reporting show in the last episodes. But I'm not really complaining. I like resin evil a whole lot in the last few rumors including this one have all seem to have some veracity to them. I like still emphasizing that. This is a rumor though but according to Andy Robinson reporting for video game chronicles. It looks like a remake of resident evil four is already in production over at Capcom Robinson writes multiple development sources have told Fiji. See that the resident. Evil for remake has now entered full production. An estimated release window in twenty twenty two development is being led by ASAKA based 'em to the new studio founded by former platinum games. Head Tetsuya Manami. Which has been preparing for the project since two thousand eighteen however similar to how twenty twenty resident evil three was directed by company. Read Works Cap. Calms internal teams and other external studios are likely to lend significant development resources? Some other details from Robinson's story. Shinji Mikami the renowned director of the original Resident Evil and evil four has apparently lent the project his blessing after declining the offer to work on the remake himself. This rumor has sparked a discussion on the Internet about remaking resident evil four. A game that many argue does not need to be remade. I played resident evil. Four on switch as recently as last year and it holds up remarkably. Well it was one of those games. I bought on sale for switch mostly just because I wanted a great portable version of the game but after playing the first hour or so. I didn't WANNA stop and ended up seeing the game to its conclusion. It's still plays great. It still looks great. So I understand those decrying a potential remake but I've always approach remakes and re imaginings 's with the reminder that a new version of something does not prevent the original from continuing to exist with that perspective. I would love to see a remake of Resin Evil Four. I love resonable four and if Capcom wants to create a new version of that game with modern visuals. I'm all about that. And if it doesn't hold up to the original resident evil four is still one of the most ported games of all time so it will be remarkably easy to find an play the original version on whatever platform you have. Robinson had a few other interesting small details in their report. The remake is apparently being directed by a resident evil newcomer and the studio creating it m to
Where will Tom Brady play in 2020?
"Asaka little Tom Brady. We did not speak about the report. Indian rappaport our guy has followed it up a few times that the Patriots are willing to pay Tom Brady thirty million dollars or more which which I think is very significant also reported by Ian. was that the chargers would show some interest in reported by. ESPN is that. Tom Brady made it to the free agent market that the raiders would be expected to show a ton of interest and all. That's fine but once I heard he and wrap Ian say the Patriots Patriots are willing to pay him thirty million dollars. I kind of was like that. That's a wrap like he's coming back to the Patriots defense. True not on purpose never made sense to me that this was for all of the prime of his career the last decade. He didn't care about money. He took pay cuts so the team could be stronger. You're all of a sudden at age. Forty three he's greedy and he only wants to be about money and you better pay me and Mike Giardi report makes a lot more sense to me that he cares much more about them. Upgrading grading the weapons around him breaking the bank on this contract. Yeah I'm with you this. I mean the idea of a money. Grab when you're within the marriage family structure that he's in money is not the first. There's the question of the night question with him as these reports and weeks have gone on is what is the level of interest in the Patriots treats especially bill belichick in in bringing Tom Brady back so the the idea that they would pay him. Thirty million would indicates me. It's high. It's it's high and and they're gonNA bring him back. I didn't I didn't know that and I feel like Ian. I thought there was like a chance they would go teddy bridgewater something like that. I really did. I think it's I think it has to do with what else is out there. And like Andy Dalton is not as. That's nice that people like to connect the DOTS and put Andy Dalton New England. And all this stuff by met no. It's flights it's flights out there people have little mentions of. Maybe Andy Dalton would be a fit for the cements exhaustion around this entire topic. It cannot be sealed up quickly enough either. figure it out just figured out figure. We're going to go. I don't WanNa hear another report about Klay. Biden wants to jump in I know he's he's Well he's not taking less money for the team narrative with with Brady well. But all taken it for I I mean I don't WanNa get too far in the conspiracy theories but I think Tom Brady is being compensated To the amount that he needs to to play for the New England Patriots I mean He. He owns a company. That is running and is operational and you can go. I do today At Patriot Patriot place. So that's not a conspiracy. That is I. Don't I don't know how that plays into your conspiracy. Do do think in terms of what Tom Brady wants Tom Brady wants to be wanted by the New England patriots. I I think he's a he's a guy that's obsessed with the way he's perceived with with bu the people that he works with and if they are willing to give him thirty million dollars in that says Tom we want you right once. We don't want Eighty Dalton. We don't want Hypothetically Cam Newton when we want you we love you Tom Bye. We will work out with your doctor. We will sell your wares feet away from the stadium. We love you. I mean al.. You are everything to fill. Its bill ballot check. He knows Robert Kraft wants wants to be new. England wants him. He knows Josh mcdaniels. It's the whole thing of does bill ballot L.. Check still want me. Does he still want him. I mean this is a guy. Bill ballot check who is ready to move forward with Jimmy Garoppolo of everything that came out of the whole Deflate Deflate Gate in that whole drama with Jimmy Jean after that the one. I think salient point to me as a patriots. Fan was ballots was very ready to just move forward with Jimmy Garoppolo and and so. That's in Tom. Brady's mine a couple of years later I would imagine that this guy might not want me. I still am not really sure but it might not be bill bell decision. It might be Robert Kraft decision. Let's move on.
The Revenge of the 47 Ronin - January 30, 1703
"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo. A high official named Kiyoshi NOCCO was in charge as master master of ceremonies for the visit US Nagano. A daimyo from echo was one of the daimyo assigned to receive the invoice kid s about training meaning him and another Daimyo in court etiquette but kit a allegedly treated poorly possibly because of inexperience or because the presence awesome offered. Weren't good enough either way us. No attacked Kita wasn't hurt badly but awesome knows action was considered a huge huge offence. Arsenault was ordered to die by Seppuku. or a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment after awesome knows death. forty-seven his Samurai right led by OAC Yoshiko toes to become Ronin and seek revenge by killing Kita. They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail. Oishi began to drink alcohol heavily and frequent Geisha the houses to alleviate suspicions and his agents began to think that the Ronin were harmless but on the night of January thirtieth seventeen o three the forty forty.

They then took it as head to Austin as grave at the Sangha cousy temple and the story of their revenge and spread. The ronin were praised by many for their loyalty and for killing Kibbe.

Climate Change Threatens the Future of Sports
"Week one of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne is almost in the books. There have already been surprises like cocoa goth knocking out defending champ. Naomi Asaka in the third round and there have been climate challenges to bad air quality because of the wildfires burning across southeastern Australia intense rainstorms. Even a blanket of red dust just from a sandstorm so what is an increasingly warm planet and the unpredictable weather that comes with it mean for tennis and other outdoor Sports Dave Ziren of the nation wrote wrote recently about how climate change is affecting sports. And he's with us now now studios in Washington. DC to talk more about it Davis Iron. Welcome back thanks for joining us. A great to be here so in your piece you describe the extreme dream weather conditions that we've seen at the open as the tip of an iceberg of a melting iceberg. In fact what did you mean by that. Well I meant that. This is an issue that sports needs to reckon with and so far it is not reckoned with it whatsoever. This is a very evocative example. Because it's a grand slam event and people are talking about it but this has been happening for years in sports on a host of smaller Mahler and other fronts like less days to play hockey in Canada. Because they're the rinks aren't solid ice. I mean they're melting rinks. In Canada other instances elect cardiovascular sports intense cardiovascular sports like cycling and like marathoning have been cut short because of heat outdoor skiing Is something that has has had to deal with the idea of having to store snow on heavy snow days because they can't be guaranteed snow throughout the year and that in and of itself leaves a tremendous carbon footprint so on a host host of different fronts. We're in a situation where climate change in sports are colliding you know. Sometimes the international sports entities have dealt with health challenges. It's like this echo virus in during the during the summer Olympics in Brazil. I mean there was open discussion about that. But you you've said that the sports world has really avoided having a conversation about climate climate change. Why do you think that is will because it puts the question of whether or not we should even be playing these sports right now under the microscope like in the context of a warming planet? Are there some sports that we should probably do away with when we're in a situation where it's possible that as many as half of all golf courses could be threatened by rising waters by the the end of this century it raises the question of should we be building more golf courses. Doing is asked to golf. Digest reported on this that of two thousand ninety out of one thousand. Roughly you want out of one thousand. Two hundred Outdoor courses that they looked at half of them are going to be affected by rising waters are sports organizations like Fida in soccer or the. NFL fell the National Football League or the International Olympic Committee. Are they built for talking about big issues like this. That's a great question. There definitely built for starting conversations nations which is what we need to do. I mean these aren't environmental emergency organizations. That can step up and do the kind of work that we need to help a warming planet but they are organizations that can start discussions in these discussions are certainly desperately needed at this point. You're going to see this summer in Tokyo. At the two thousand twenty Olympics they're expecting a rising heat and at the next world a cop which is going to be held in Qatar where it's going to be extremely hot And that's why they moved it to the fall instead of doing it. Over the summers traditionally do precisely because of the rising heat and so in these contacts can be discussions that can be had about how sports should operate. How can sports be more green? How can a sports not leave such an intense carbon footprint imprint think the Australian Open? And what's been happening. There opens the way up for all these discussions before you go. Who Do you think should take the lead here? I mean. Should it be these organizations that are supposed to look out for the interests of the players as well as the integrity of the sport. Do you think it's like the celebrity athletes. This is one of the subjects of your career as Islamic activism. And how how that affects. The athletes lives and careers. I mean this is something you've written about extensively for for many years. Now I mean what do you I think I think we're going to need The top athletes in their sports speaking out and speaking out on behalf of all players in treating it like a workplace safety issue. I think if they're able to do that. It provides an opening for speaking about the environmental impact and talking about the impact on the athletes themselves. I do not think we can trust the league's the higher ups in the leagues which are basically profit machines from actually actually trying to say well. Maybe we can't make as much money but also leave less of a global footprint. It's GonNa take the athletes to step up and make this thing happen. That's Davis Iron. Hey sports writer for worth a nation. That's the Progressive Magazine. He recently wrote about climate change and its impact on sports. Teams aren't thank you so much for talking to
Coco Gauff stuns Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open, taking a straight sets win in the third round
"Cocoa Gov. We talked about her the other day and how she comes back in matches says he dropped a set but then as the comeback. He's done incredible number of times the two years. She didn't need that today the fifteen year old over Osaka six three a six four defending champ. Kp what does it mean and are you willing to say the future is upon us of course futures are put us. You've got to love the cocoa right. Look what she did. She extinguished will stock of their. Who beat her? The last time out in a in a in a slam She got by Venus Williams earlier. She's advancing quicker and faster than anyone thought. We've had three sixteen year old winters winters. I believe in the women's side and Slams Austin and sellers and so that's what her opportunity is here. Right now with Serena out of the mix of course course is still there who beat her last time out so she's got to get over that and then some other really good players out there but this is a chance for history right what he page which you can see improvement. I mean she's the only player very joe neither side men or women to get to the third round and win in in three majors or I three majors so you could see the improvement. Let's look at her serve. I think that's the most important thing that I saw was that she was the last time she did lose. Who's she was around? Forty five percent of first serves seventy five percent in this batch. I mean think about the difference there that we're talking and her experience now that she's able to actually do more things because she has been here before he does not. She still has nerves. But we saw with a double-fault twice in a row except that she's going to improve on that as she goes along becomes. It's absolutely remarkable just historic the numbers. I mean she's the youngest player to beat a top five opponent on the tour and nearly thirty years that was Jennifer Capriati Serena who came forward but actually the number that jumps out to me. The most Tony was seventeen eighteen. That's the number of unforced errors. She had which was about half of what saga had. And I think signifies the level of poise. She's playing with which must be infuriating. ASAKA UH admitted. It was infuriating losing to someone that much younger than her. I know some of the fellow panelist today show. How about that Thursday? I'm just glad we're not talking about how Osaka might never win again. because she got beaten by someone that sheet so easily chip you and we're talking to mean to menas point Most of the players that are in the Australian junior open right now are older than cocoa golf off. That's how young she is. She's doing this at an age that we just haven't seen before and everybody's points are valid the poise. That's there the ability to play without too many errors in the future is
Lebanese Reaction To Nissan's Ex- Chief Fleeing Japan For Lebanon
"It's a Cliche to say this next story. Sounds like a Hollywood movie and yet former Nissan Chairman Carlos Goan had his passport seized. He was under twenty four hour. Our surveillance in Tokyo he escaped from Japan and then turned up in Lebanon. This means he will likely avoid going to trial in Tokyo where he faces financial misconduct charges charges. And it seems that Lebanon's government has welcomed him. So how did he get their Khloe. Cornish with the Financial Times is reporting out this story. She's on skype from in Beirut. Hey chloe I know so. You've been talking to people who have been talking to Carlos Jones family. Are we any closer to solving the mystery of how this man got Out of Japan. What are they telling you? I'm not I really to be honest at this point. Able to say how he got out of Japan and what what we do know at this point that he had a French possible in his possession which he was able to use what we do also know now this morning learning is that Turkish authorities are looking into how he was able to transit through techie on his way from Asaka in Japan to Ebanon which is what he seemed to have done. Sexual therapies at concerned that his entry and exit to the country wasn't registered That's interesting you also found out that he hired private investigators instigators right. What was their role in this so I just just to be fair? I didn't find that out but the so it's not private. Investigators I am but it's believed that a private security company was used to help orchestrate this this escape flight from Japan which clearly like took a lot. Uh Planning right as you say. Twenty four seven so they events you also reported that Lebanese officials had been pushing for his release. And I think this is one of the really interesting things things about Carlos going. This is what you might call a worldly man Can you explain to people why Lebanon is so interested in him in particular he has family roots roots. There right. Yes so call US Lawson which is how you pronounce? His name and Arctic is a Lebanese citizen. His his family are from Lebanon. He spent quite a large chunk of his childhood in Lebanon. He was he was born in Brazil and he has business interests here as well just sort of small business interests on the side of being one of the world's various automotive moguls and he's part owner of a winery and He he holds a Lebanese passport and the Lebanese government which which I found out yesterday had actually requested his extradition from Japan back in November last year in the formal formal letters to the Japanese government. And this was a request that was reiterated. Actually just a week ago in kind of coincidental timing When the Japanese foreign minister made an official visit to Beirut on some of the twentieth so at a meeting with The Lebanese beneath President and the Japanese far far Minnesota this file was was raised again. This request of Mr Corson's extradition was an for him to face trial in Lebanon rather than Japan was was raised again. I see in very quickly. What do Lebanese people ordinary people think of him for a long time on call us? Washington has been seen as a sort of August of successes. Eleven expatriate Lebanon has a very strong business culture and also has a huge population relation. But it's fair to say his is dimming. There's another I would think. Maybe he's maybe he is guilty. They don't they don't know financial supporter. khloe corners. Thanks so much thank you.
"asaka" Discussed on Toure Show
"Were you at the <hes> Serena Asaka U._S.. Open final. You know I was at the Serena do you. This is difficult question for you. As you probably don't want to answer this but do you think the chair umpire call Holbeck match fairly the chair umpire call the matches by the rule so for him he gave the warning she broke Iraq and it was a point she had an outburst that was <hes> negative towards him and it ended up being in a game.

Hong Kong Anti-Extradition Protesters Rally Again Near Government Offices
"In Hong Kong continuing over plans to introduce a controversial extradition, Bill that could see criminal suspects extradited to mainland China to face trial, the city states. Authorities of put their plans on hold. But there's still considerable anger about the measure, well, I'm joined on the line by Monaco's Hong Kong bureau chief James chambers, James. What's the latest there? Well, it's been a bit of a quiet week in comparison to the protests of a couple of weeks ago, but they're still ongoing, as you mentioned. They've become a bit splintered. So in the last few days have been more smaller protests outside the police station, but they've also spread to blockading the local kind of tax office. They've been standing outside the, the Justice ministry stopping the minister from accessing the office and they also went around to a lot of the g twenty consul-generals that are based in, in Hong Kong to try and raise awareness of the situation in Hong Kong to all of these countries that will be attending the summit that's going on right now in Asaka in Japan. So it's I guess they're trying to maybe internationalized the protests and they've been using some quite clever ways of raising awareness during during a lot of the big protests, there were people Ray. Raising money raise in a donation boxes. And one one person actually started a crowd funding project, too. And it raised over five million dollars, very quickly, which is about half a million pounds. And they used that to, to buy adverts in about ten inch national newspapers. Some some listeners from around the world might have seen these whole page adverts in places like the guardian Neil times, which with a massive headline that says you stand with Hong Kong think that this request that, I think, pro- Cain terminent, three the permanent to the still Schumer boom to, to raise this with China's president. She's in ping, at the g twenty do you think that, that's likely? Well, I guess a lot of our attention will be on the big meeting tomorrow between President Trump and seeking and see whether the US president actually brings it up. I guess we of us in a very, very surprised and impressed. It's the prime minister Shinzo Ave, permissive. Japan he raised it when he met with Xi Jinping yesterday. So all the reporting on that meeting is, is about the warming relations between China and Japan, you know, touristy to a poor relationship those two neighbors, and they're making a lot of progress to, to kind of patching that shop in preparing for presidency to make a statement since Japan. But despite that kind of loving prison, Abbott did actually raise the topic of Hong Kong as well as the way that China treats the weakest in, in western China. So I mean it's quite we'll impress that, that he did that. And I guess the owners will be on other world leaders who attending the G twenty to bring this up when they meet with. See, now we understand that reports have been circulating online about plans to disrupt the flag-raising ceremony, which marks Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule on July the first that protesters are planning something big for that.

What the G-20 summit means for currencies
"Joining us as mark mccormack head global head of f._x. strategy at t._d. securities mark thanks so much for joining us i wanted to start with the g. twenty and kind of how you think the various scenarios coming out of the g twenty could impact currencies kinda how are you positioning yourself there yeah thanks for having me to start but for the twenty i think it's it's interesting to think about that this is a part of an event ristic goes into a longer process of of the trade wars but to kind of think around some of the scenarios there's obviously the worst case which is escalating which is you know talks breakdown u._s. lapsed the additional three hundred billion worth of tariffs on china that seems seemingly unlikely at this point but the other scenarios are generally are base cases which is we agree to a framework to restart talks although we do not reach new deal so i think i think those are the two kind of most focused on outcomes and i would say ours is definitely the latter where it's agree to i guess to disagree but we're not reaching a deal anytime soon do you still or do you view the deputies yen as a safe haven in and around these talks that's historically been one of its attributes is that still the case in your mind i think it's it's a bit of a misnomer but i think what's really important about the japanese yen is if you have to think about the capital flows and if you think about avonex and quantitative easing and all the things that's happened in japan japan has the world's largest excess savings which for many years now has been deployed in the rest of the world equity market and also fixed income so what what really drives the yen on risk off is it's really the japanese bringing their money home so the fact that when when markets turn a bit sour and global equities have a lot of all tila ty- the japanese on strengthening because the yen flows are coming back into japan mccormick my wager is they say in england on the red sox let's painful right now i need to make some money back quick mark can you trade off asaka can you try Trade-off g twenty. i don't think so i think the problem is especially speaking with a lot of clients last especially the last couple of months is everyone kinda looks at a lot of these events is binary and even if we think about brexit and some of the other things that are kind of overhanging it's no one that we really kind of speak with that has investment thesis is really kind of comfortable deploying risk into vents you know they're tradeable we have trades of the week and and other ways we like to think about tactical trades but i think for some of the broader money managers these aren't becoming risks that there's just too much uncertainty and binary risks are just too hard to trade becomes a bit more of a gamble can we see big figure moves or is it more of a grind pair to pair i think we're getting to a point where we're going to start seeing big figure moves i think the last time i was on we talked about the outlook for the broad dollar and i think what we've seen the past couple of weeks is really reinforces that there's a top in the broad dollar and things that we had focused on earlier in the year was kind of return to the carry trade dollar that was weaker against emerging markets on reach for yield and i think what we're seeing now over the past couple of weeks is a major pivot not just for merging markets for the broad dollar but for the euro to start to strengthen for the yen to strengthen and for the the broad feds trade dollar to finally turn and start to re rekindle that bears trying to was on before it was disrupted last year so it's interesting mark so about the euro in particular to seems that the economic uncertainty in and around europe particularly southern europe persists what can euro do right here so i think you want to say about the euro kinda like this it's it's kind of an asset that's got a tremendous amount of bad news parts priced in it's especially on the u._s. dollar side of it it's the dollar seems to no longer responding well to i guess you would call it good news and i think the thing with the euro that's really important is that there's really not much more easy can do to try to weaken the euro they could try to cut rates that they have to have a tearing system but we're also dealing with the central banker who's a bit of a lame duck and i think in the in the second half of the year we'll know who the who's going to replace druggy but i think the important thing for the euro is the economy is is stabilizing it's no longer decelerating there's tremendous amount of bad news priced in our positioning evaluation models show that the market is extremely short euro and we showed that the euro's relatively cheap on a medium-term basis and i think what you're seeing if there's a broad base broad based anti u._s. dollar trade which i didn't this is why people are focusing on gold the euro along with the end become two very strong forms of reserve currencies that are that are also dollar traits well then let's pull that in your advantage at t._d. securities by your work with preah misery and if you fulled in her fixed income call with your foreign-exchange mix what does this signal for yield and particularly full faith and credit yield yeah it's a great question so what it is is it's the start of a fed easing cycle that extends into into next year and i think what you get is the fed essentially cutting rates if you think about where the u._s. ten year real rate is about thirty three basis points right now where's it going to be in a year it could be it could be back to close to zero but then why do we need that if we have cleared a solid economy well i think if you kind of look at the path of the yield curve what you're getting is is central banks are seems to be their cushioning for the potential downside that would manifest if the trade wars were to escalate and so i think what the yield curve in in the fixed income markets telling us that the central banks are taking out insurance but then what is good enough to to stabilize the economy where where central banks start to normalize and the next eighteen months or so so i think what what's really important is that we're kind of on the precipice right now especially with trade wars that the global economy could could get shifted into a negative feedback loop i would central banks are trying to do is stave off that worst case scenario and if they can do that then they can get that relation and so you know i think that's the impact where it's you know we think about the lags in acts of monetary policy this could kind of help cushion a slowdown as we move into twenty twenty record things t._d.

Top food guide says quality of French cuisine is on the slide
"The Bush fifty best restaurant guide has long been accused of being down on French restaurants said three years ago. French initiative list was set up described as a guide of guides. It ranks one thousand best restaurants in the world by aggregating millions of reviews from guides Michelin to newspapers and consumer websites. But in the latest edition published today the list seems to agree with the British guide by declaring the standard of French cuisine is dropping Richard vines is the chief food critic at Bloomberg in each planks coming in. So this is a scientific guide. It's getting all of this different information. It can't really be accused of bias. Can it is a scientific French guy? The ends up with two who've restaurant serving French foods is the best in the world. No, I quite understand how the friendships set by the world's fifty best and the latest twenty two fronts restaurants in the one is an Argentine chef in the south and the single Paris restaurant in the top twenty. I don't think anyone would accept that as reasonable least aggregate guys, which they wait depending on how reliable they find them. I suspect they find Mitch extremely reliable and the full list is out this morning. So if this is believed to be believed, what's the reason behind the slide of French cooking will it's the president of French guide saying it which surprised because other people being saying for years, I think it's a few things partly. He's talking mainly about outside. Parents. It's about the up front sue people leaving the countryside these beautiful little bistros. And so I'm and also French regulation where is so complicated setting up a business running a business employing people that. Enterprise isn't necessarily that much encouraged a French restaurant as you say they did come out on top came out and top. Anyone would seriously say that the French? Cuisine isn't just Britain's at its best. Did he won national cuisine apart from French that seems to Trump all Elyse well in the least top franchise atop cuisine is Japanese for the Chinese and then French which bitter surprise Japan is just sweeping the world. Now. I mean, they've always had that cuisine. But we've discovered Japan the rest of the discovered Japan in the past twenty thirty years, and we're all going crazy for that cuisine. Lou and intensive restaurants that are actually in Tokyo or in other parts of Japan. They ranking high because they are local Japanese or this perhaps French cooking in Japan knows definitely local Japanese cuisine, particularly in Tokyo, Asaka Kyoto. Incredible chefs emissions just going overboard, awarding three stars to fashioned restaurants in Japan. Now. There was also some discussion around Italian food, and the fact that that's taking the place of French because it's just so much easier to cook a chap from least says if you get. Some tomato sauce pastor, but parmesan cheese. You're set with its I mean cuisine where French is far more sophisticated. I think obviously, he's a slight French bias in that. But I have say French cuisine at its best. It's just brilliant, simple foods, probably Italian is easier to do. Now, the head of the guide made the point that the rise of Instagram's meant the look of food is become much more important people reaching with is quite interesting. He said, it's mainly women, which is the restaurants probably wouldn't say, I mean, I think is that you can't take out in. Let's driving people into restaurants and all the rest. No, that's I think is changing looker foods. It is getting pretty. But in a good presentation is all part of it. At least now as he was saying fifty to one hundred French restaurants closing every year in all the will. But actually in Japan, as well that closing this chap was in for my French invested to Japan, and he said, hundreds of gently French restaurants because in Japan. Japanese opening. I think we can anyone can see does the traveling around the world you go to the smallest town it almost any country. I was in Laos a few years ago and their Italian restaurants. Busy people really like it the food. So acceptable is not just sees.

"I'm Marco werman and you're with the world good to have you here. The US open. It gave my family. Plenty to talk about yesterday. Today. We here on the show are still talking about it. Naomi Asaka versus Serena Williams in the final score gave the win to Asaka, but the subplots in the match were distracting to say the least a couple of controversial calls, including the chair, umpire docking Williams, a whole game after she called the empire a thief. Here's Serena Williams afterwards. I seen other men call other unpire several things, and I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality. And for all kinds of stuff in for me to say, fief infirm, take a game. It made me feel like it was a sexist remark. I mean, like how he's never took a game from a man because I said, feet. Romy it blows my mind. Arguably, if you watch the match the mind that was most blown was Naomi or soccer's. She is the first person born in Japan to win a grand slam championship butter victory is now tangled up in what is a larger conversation about tennis decorum, sexism, misogyny, and race. In Japan, though Asaka win is at the top of the news agenda with a conversation about mixed race. Identity trailing far behind my took a rich as a reporter for the New York Times and joins us from Tokyo. So first of all, what's been the reaction in Japan to Asakusa win? What have you heard? Well, on the surface, it's been kind of overwhelming, yo straightforward, joy. There's a lot of pride. A lot of people said they thought it was impossible that a Japanese woman would win a grand slam. So soon they were completely taken by surprise. There was sort of media reaction is overjoyed and when I was out on the streets on Sunday and visited some tennis courts, people. Had all gotten out really early because it was like five in the morning here to watch the match. And they were really, really thrilled that she had one. But when you sort of take a step back and look at what this might mean for Japan, which typically had a very conflicted relationship with its own notion of what it means to be Japanese, which had the most conservative element is to to to think of being Japanese is kinda pure blooded s Nissim and race..
"asaka" Discussed on Hard Factor
"He gave her a third code violation for verbal abuse and penalized for a full game, which at that point in the match was just fucking normal. It's pretty much. Huge. Yeah. So she called down some supervisors and some w ta referees and brought the sexism card out saying, this is not fair. There's a lot of men out here that have a lot of have set a lot of things, but if they're men that doesn't happen to them. Yeah, the the crowds are, meanwhile, she's crying hysterically like only a woman would do in that scenario. Like a lot of men might say some things within they wouldn't try their mascara off their face in the middle of a match. Yeah, it was a scene. It was definitely a scene, so because I'm a woman. He's gonna take this away from me blow law. So after much crying, dramatics match, continued Asaka eventually one after the match Williams was fined seventeen thousand dollars ten for verbal abuse, four, four for coaching violation in three for racket abuse must have there. Yeah. No, that's nothing for her. But my favorite part there is the four thousand for the coaching violation. Just really emphasizing you did cheat, they just wanted to throw that in there. Yeah. I mean, the coach admitted to coaching her, so it's pretty much a new Honda Civic that they made her by, but three thousand for racket abuse. Like how is that a is? I was at a rule violation racketed again, it's your racquet. Yeah, it's just it's just the gentleman gentlemanly and lady of the game that's about standard for the kids. Tennis and golf have some funny rules, but the coach did admit, like you said. But he also said that every coach coaches, then he threw some coaches names out there like Rafael, Nidal's coach and someone else's coach. I'm watching them coach every play. Yeah, it's like it's like saying every shooter shoots shooters shoot. That's why the shooter's it's a coach. So going to internet sippy. Jacob says it was just shocking to watch aggressive behavior towards the empire, disregarding the opponent. She had shown no respect the unpire Asaka and the spectators and above all the sport was that commenters named sippy sippy TC to CPS. Yes, I p I. The sanctity of tennis. I still don't think Pat understands that you're not allowed to coach tennis. I don't think he's. I don't. I'm lost weight, coach your pouch. You're not allowed to coach during a match. What do you not get about this based on your comments during the segment? I don't think you still understand that I'm at a loss. So anyway, bad bad day for Serena, and then the Asaka gutter wind taken away from her by this controversy which suck too. So she didn't even get to enjoy her championship, which soured her first championship Schaefer. She'll get more chances though. All right. Let's connaitre to another store here. Former deputy Republican,.
US Open 2018: Serena Williams accuses umpire of sexism after outbursts in final
"Yesterday at the US open tennis finals, and it was it was really marred by a controversy of Serena Williams, your winner yesterday was Naomi Asaka of Japan. She made history last night winning her first grand slam event twenty year old and Serena went off like a like a five year old turn a temper tantrum in one impassioned phrase packed. With emotion. Serena says, I don't cheat to win. I'd rather lose than she got a second violation for smashing. Her tennis court racket on the pavement, costing her a point. And after that at one point she sitting on the chair on the sidelines, and she's arguing with the on the buyers, not responding not replying not engaging in that just pissed her off even more and the more she laid into him and the more he didn't reply the more. She just got angry as all get out. And finally, she looks up the empire says you stole a point for me. You're a thief. And that's all took the empire announced that he was finding Serena a full game. And at that point. Serena Williams was spent she was done some major championship. Just like Tiger Woods. Serena Williams plans her year round the US open. She's struggling in this match with an upstart twenty year old she's emotionally charged. And now she's in it with an empire feels that. She feels that he is penalized her for her actions. And she clearly believes it tennis officials have put up with more for male tennis players. Inner one John McEnroe for one MAC used to break tennis, rackets like like, we change underwear sometimes and Serena asked for different officials officials came out they had a heated conversation and one race voice. The when she raised her voice once she said, there are men out here who do a lot worse. And it goes on to say that the empire's finding her because she's a woman she literally said that I'm being fined because I'm a woman because a woman you're gonna take this away from me as she just breaks down and cries, and what's interesting is the fans in the stadium were supporting her they were rallying behind her. She was she was a good good girl last night. Being penalized by the bad guy in the chair now later after the match arenas coach was interviewed on TV and said that he was coaching. His quote was to be honest. I was coaching. I don't think she looked at me. I don't think she looked at me. So she never saw my signals. But I was like one hundred percent of the coaches one hundred percent of the matches. I was coaching today. The US Tennis Association released a statement afterwards saying that the chairs umpire's decision was final and not reviewable just this morning at about twelve thirty. It was announced. Serena Williams will be fine seventeen thousand dollars for violations during her open final yesterday. After after that, she did a press conference. And here's what Serena had to say in at the end of that. You gotta listen to the audio about how the reporters and the room respond. I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief because he thought he took a game from me. But I've seen other men. Call other umpires several things and I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff in for me to say fief in firm to take a game. It made me feel like it was a sexist remark. I mean like how he's never took a game from a man because I said. It blows my mind, but I'm gonna continue to to fight for women into fight for us to have equal coordination. Be able to take her shirt off without getting a fine. Like, this is outrageous. You know? And I just feel like the fact that I have to go through. This is just an example for the next person that has emotions and that want to express themselves, and they want to be a strong woman, and they're going to be allowed to do that. Because today, maybe didn't work out for me. But it's going to work for the next person. And at the end of that as you can hear the reporters starting to clap and gave her applause in the reporters in the room were supportive of Serena. And if you know anything about the world of reporting when you go into that environment and a sports environment you're supposed to stay neutral. You're not allowed to root. You're not allowed to support. You're not allowed to applause one way or another and show whether you support or disagree. That was stunning to me that the reporters in the room would applaud her and support her to really surprise me. So the question I posed to you is was that sexism yesterday was sexism involved because this man in the chair penalized. Serena Williams, did he unfairly penalised her because she's a girl did he unfairly lobby of finder. Her did the Tennessee association do that. I'd love to
