"You're clocking in at $1642. 52 cents. To enjoy three days. Mickey Mouse. We're the park hopper option. Gita people are paying these higher prices, aren't they? They are Paul and as you just mentioned, I mean, I just went to the first recently. It's absolutely jammed back. The lines, yes, the lines are still crazy, even though they have this new reservation system, even though they have this new Genie plus, which is your virtual assistant. This is actually helping them to manage kind of yield and to manage wait times. And they are reducing wait times so you can spend more on your food and beverages and buy all those. So if I spend $1600 for me and two kids, you know, I take vet Bill and kennel fee, that doesn't guarantee me a slot at Cinderella's royal table. Seriously, it doesn't. It doesn't, but it reduces your weight dye, I think. I feel great, Paul. Paul for Cinderella's royal table of availability begins August of 2024. I mean, it's just crazy. All right, Keith and let's talk about some of the other businesses. What did they say about the theatrical business, the movie business? They're number one in Hollywood. Are people going back to the theaters? What are they saying about that? People are going back to the theaters and we saw that from all of our results of the summer box office, all the blockbusters did really well. So they had Doctor Strange. They had Thor, which are both continuing to perform really well. Still haven't outpaced Top Gun though. But I think once Black Panther comes out, which will be in November this year. And then they have avatar. They just have a fantastic setup for their mobile. I have never turned on. They have just been years since average. It's not as long as Top Gun. Maverick, but it's been a long time since that Avatar. Did you realize it's Cindy? Cinderella's royal restaurant, the Mickey shaped waffle is gonna set you back $27 per child. Is that a sirloin sirloin waffle? No. You know, I mean, the last time I went with Michael Barr, you know, he was challenged on shrimp and grip, scripts, and I went for the Mickey shaped waffle. Yeah. That's gonna set you back some more. That's inflation down. That's price inflation. Food inflation. It's stunning. Every time I've gone, it's been like, are you kidding me? Yeah. People are passionate about it. Keith, to come back when they dropped their prices. He's been ranking off him. I'm absolutely amazed by it. I know. And as you say, it's packed. Yeah, the pent up demand that we see, again, Michael regents just talking about the cruise ships, the theme parks and it's just extraordinary. I had the shrimp and grits once it was actually phenomenal. With our news in New York City is Michael Barr. Sam Paul, thank you very much. Donald Trump says he invoked the Fifth Amendment and would not answer questions under oath in the long running New York civil investigation into his business dealings. Trump was at New York attorney general letitia James office, he sent out a statement saying he declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the U.S. Constitution. FBI director Christopher wray says he could not talk about FBI agents, searching Mar-a-Lago, the home of former president Trump. Ray did say that he is considering the threats to law enforcement that have been voiced since then. Violence against law enforcement is not the answer no matter what anybody is upset about or who they're upset with. And I think we have, in this country, had over the last few years, an alarming rise of violence against law enforcement. FBI director Christopher wray spoke from his field office in Omaha, Nebraska. Three people were killed when a house exploded in Evansville, Indiana. Almost 40 other homes were damaged in the blast, fire chief Mike Conway. My expectations are with lower gasoline prices, more people will start to drive in those prices are going to start edging up. That, by the way, is an analyst Phil Flynn. He was talking about gas prices, gas prices are now under $4. Personal inflation meter is a gasoline price. Yeah. And it's down. Yeah. It's amazing. So those gas taxes that have gotten the cuts from state and federal that is doing a great job. Here we go. Live from the Bloomberg interactive brokerage studios, this is global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts more than a 120 countries on Michael Barr and this is Bloomberg temple. The blue buttons there. It's my first day. Michael, have you done the Disney World thing? No, I have not. But $25 for a waffle? Yeah, 27. 27 per child plus tax and gratuity, they're not going to pay it in Bitcoin. And that's for a Mickey Mouse waffle. One waffle. You take a like two, but it's a shape of Mickey Mouse. And what do you do? The kid gets the kid gets to syrup on misses Keane's purse and ruin the ruin the bag. And, you know, I mean, it's Disney World. It's unbelievable. The best thing is the sports camps. Yes. You go for a week to sports camp. And then dad figures out that a week is four days. That's a Disney week. Right. It's a Disney week. I mean, it's not four and a half days. It's four days. Are they charging you extra for the syrup? I don't know about that. I might be all right. I might get all in price, but I tell you, they were just RevPAR revenue per available room that's the technical metric they use. It's just been going straight up over the last year. As Paul said, it's packed. Yeah, so. There were ships. Futures up 31 down futures up two 57. It is a buoyant buoyant market. We are, I think I could say this for myself. Shocked.

"Run like you're adding these proxies everywhere. Every call between a and B now has to go through two proxies. It's not just one, but two proxy. So that's gonna add latency. And things are going to consume memory and the consume CPU. But typically the real costs are the applications themselves. So usually the biggest source of CPU and memory and so on is the application. Or if you're running Prometheus, and that's what's called the membrane your cluster. Is there any interface between Prometheus and the service mesh? We expose metrics in Prometheus compatible fashion. And then we have a linker D vis extension. You can install the installs a little Prometheus and a little grafana and gives you the dashboard and stuff like that. So yeah, that's it's not critical. It's not required for the service mesh to run, but it's been kind of our default time series database and at least for the on cluster dashboard that you can get with linker D, just throw it in Prometheus and let Prometheus sort it out. Can you tell me more about your actual infrastructure and how buoyant cloud is deployed in architected? Yeah, so there was a little debate internally when we first got started. It's like, well, we don't really need microservices. We don't really need Kubernetes. It's going to be pretty straightforward application. Maybe we could just do something normal. On the one hand, and another hand's like, well, we also really wanted to dog food linker, which means we're going to have to use Kubernetes. And we're going to have to write things to services. And eventually, the dog fooding went out. So it's like, it's a little over engineered, frankly, because we really wanted to have it as a platform for running Lincoln. But it runs on Kubernetes. Comprises multiple services, they speak HTTP and GRPC. As I talk to each other, they serve up a web dashboard. I believe we use react on the front end. Use the actual, you know, the way you connect your cluster, the point cloud, as you add a link to the extension, you can add the little agent and the agent kind of like talk to a linker and reports what it sees back up to the point cloud. So it's not actually that weird or interesting. It's pretty straightforward, at least in the world of Kubernetes. But we try not to try not to make it particularly we're not actually doing anything that crazy. All of our real technical deep tech stuff is in Lincoln itself. And point cloud is pretty normal looking Kubernetes application. With one big action with one big exception, I take that back, because now I realize, we actually do have a lot of metrics data. So we have to do some fancy stuff to handle all the metrics data because one of the things we do is we take all everything that your proxies are doing. We report that home back up to point cloud. We host it. We separated it all out by customers, so no one's allowed to see anyone else with data and stuff like that. And we give you graphs and you can go back and time windows, and you can compare latency versus rollouts and a bunch of stuff like that. That part of it gets a little more sophisticated. Can you tell me about standing up a successful support program because you obviously have to service customers that have a wide range of issues? Do you have to build particular instrumentation that allows you to assist those people or build internal applications and yeah, how does your support strategy work? Yeah, this is great. So a big part of what we do for our enterprise customers as we help them run Laker D when we started doing that, we kind of adopted the same model that everyone else does, which is like, oh, 24/7 on call. And so if Lincoln breaks, you call us and you wake us up at three in the morning and then we have until this time to get back to you and then we're going to help you reboot your pods, whatever. And after a while, doing that and you're like, wait a minute. If we if we had a little more insight into what your application is doing and the save your service mesh, then things would be a lot better. That actually was the genesis of point cloud. So the reason why point cloud is management project is like a linker to the management product is because not only does it help you operate in liquidy, it also helps us. So if you give us access, we can log into your point cloud account, we can see the state of your alerts, we can if you have a very fancy support relationship with us, we can start calling you, and we can start being proactive. Hey, look, Jeff, you got a certificate that is going to expire next week. Here's what you need to do. X Y, and Z and then we flip the model around so instead of it being this reactive thing, it's like, you know, the emergency room, where, okay, wait till you break your leg and then you can come to us and we'll help you fix it. We can actually be proactive. We can say, hey, look, you got to eat your apples and your vegetables and you got to drink milk or whatever. Whatever. Whatever you're supposed to do to be healthy. Yeah, I'm looking for the days when linkerd can tell me what to do about my diet. We'll add, we'll add it as an extension. You just have to add the proxy into your bloodstream somewhere. You know, attach it to a 5G chip and you should be just fine. What's been your experience of going fully remote as a company? Oh gosh, it's been it's been interesting, you know, and I don't think we would have done it had the pandemic not trying to force our hand, but I'm really glad that we did, because it's actually been really, it's been really good for the company. Even before COVID hit, we had been hiring folks in all sorts of different parts of the world, which I love. I love that model for a company, but we were still pretty SF based. And then once the pandemic was going and it didn't seem like there was an end in sight, maybe it still doesn't we decided to bite the bolt and just be remote first. And it's meant, what does it meant? Well, it's meant that we're all spending a lot of time on Zoom meetings. Not great, but it's meant that, well, at least for me, it's meant that I actually have a lot more time than I can spend with my family and with my kids, which has been gratifying. I can see them throughout the day even if just for 60 seconds here and 5 minutes there. You know, they come home from school and I can say hi to them. So that part's been great. And then for the company, I think one thing that really helped us was a lot of the work that we're doing is asynchronous by nature anyways. Big community project. We've got maintainers who live in all sorts of different parts of the world. And so naturally, there's asynchronous lawsuit and actually change stuff that they're going cloud tend to be a lot more synchronous. And so we've shifted the model there, so we're having live conversations over Zoom or.

"Out. And I think doing a pretty good job on has been navigating that and knowing when to invest in community and when to start the sales conversation and when not to, because you don't want to try and sell something to someone who doesn't want to buy it. That's not what sales is. That's maybe like used car sales, right? But that's not what modern software sales is about. Bottom software sales is like it's a collaborative and helpful relationship. The way if you really want to be successful at this, yes, you're exchanging value, goods for value, but that value has to actually be valuable for you, especially since pretty much everything we do is on a subscription basis. So even if we manage to trick you into doing something for one year, well, if you go away the next year, that's not great. So we have to make you successful. So navigating that complexity between the open-source and sales probably is more has been more of a challenge to the company than just or has more defined the way the company works than just the fact that it's infrastructure or software, although certainly infrastructure means that there's a set of constraints instead of capabilities that the company has to develop. The other thing that's been really helpful for us, I think, is that attitudes towards open-source have changed. And I forget whether you and I have talked about this in the past, but I remember when I started in open-source, which was a long time ago, you know, we were passing around stacks of floppy disks. Installing Linux. We were installing slackware version, whatever, zero point, something or other. And open-source was the thing. It was like, we're sticking it to the man. You know, I don't have to buy windows anymore because I can just install Linux. Take that, Bill Gates. You know, and it was this real kind of almost anti corporate thing. And over the past, I'm going to give away my age being over the past 30 years or whatever it is, something like that. The relationship between the commercial and open-source has gotten a lot friendlier. And I think today, if you look at the really popular open-source projects, there's always a company behind them that is investing in those projects. It's not a knights and weekends thing. It's not volunteer. It's very rare for it to be like this volunteer only effort. Usually there's an economic engine behind the project that's powering the growth of the project. And once you get comfortable with that, you know, it's good for the project. It's incentivized. It gives a project oxygen. You have developers. You have maintainers. You have people who are being paid to make this thing better. And it can be done. It can be done in a way that is not anti community. Here's.

"Heterogeneous, as you've gotten a wider range of customers, presumably, some of them are on legacy deployment systems that aren't as standardized as just everybody doing Kubernetes. Has it become more difficult to serve the range of infrastructure use cases with the same user experience? Well, we certainly see an expansion in the sorts of workloads that link or do is exposed to. Even within the world of Kubernetes used to be well, you'd have a deployment and you'd have and you'd have a stateful set and you'd have whatever demon set, you know, and now there's much more sophisticated things like Argo rollouts and these other operators that are starting to come into the system that Lincoln has to be aware of. Kubernetes itself has some, I don't want to say words, but it has some sharp edges when it comes to things like container ordering. And so anyone who's using cron jobs, you know, like we have to do some special stuff for, and then the other thing we've seen a lot of is multi cluster. So that's been a big expansion in usage. And that has its own special set of concerns, especially as Lincoln tries to mediate, not just on cluster calls, but also calls between clusters, which could potentially be separated across the entire Internet. So yeah, even in the world of Kubernetes, the sets of workloads that link are these being exposed to is definitely growing. It's been manageable. So far, I think in part because Lincoln tries to be pretty basic in how attaches to the rest of Kubernetes and Kubernetes in turn, it's pretty good at being a platform on which things are built, but it's not getting easier. I'd love to know about some of the engineering challenges that you've encountered. Maybe organizationally or technically, as the company has scaled, you know, it's interesting to hear that the core technology has remained relatively stable. It's been pretty much the same core technology, but I'm sure there's stuff you have to fix day to today or various minor features you have to add. And managing that in tandem with a growing company has its complexity. So I'd love to know about how you're managing the company and how you're dividing up responsibilities. Yeah, so there's technical complexity and then there's organizational complexity in the two things. Sometimes have parallels, but often don't, you know, especially since organizational complexity involves human beings, which are kind of squishy objects. So I'd say on the technical side, what's the nicest, kind of the original model for linker, at least for two X is one of horizontal scaling. So yes, we've made the proxy itself a lot faster. We've made it able to handle much higher throughputs. We've done a bunch of investment there. And if you look at the benchmarks that we publish, you'll see the results of that effort. We've gone through and like tweaked the memory allocator in rust and things like that and done a bunch of experiments to optimize that. But the core design is one of horizontal scalability. And so as you add more, we're close to the system. Well, you get more proxies. And the control plane itself can scale up and you can run multiple replicas of the control plane. So we haven't really hit the on that side. We haven't really hit a bottleneck. On the organizational side, you know, not talking about buoyant the company, you know, I think one thing that we have started doing which we probably should have done a long time ago is having a really cohesive road map between Lincoln and buoyant cloud. It used to be that the two things were pretty separate. There was linker D road map and when at its pace and then there's a point cloud road map and it went on its pace nowadays. We've gotten a little smarter and as design and development goes into Lincoln, it's taking feedback from boy cloud. And obviously, as point cloud, it's developed or taking a lot of input into feedback from linker D and part of the reason why that's possible is because we run a linker to ourselves. So point cloud itself runs on liquidity. So we are not just creators. We're also consumers of dog food. And in fact, it feels like we're swimming in dog food. It's like, yeah, there's a lot of dog food. But that's actually been really helpful, you know? And having that kind of very direct connection has been gratifying because shipping open-source, man, it's like, it's like shipping CDs, you know? You know, you kind of release and then like you put it out there on a Friday and you're like, okay. You know, there it is world and then you go home and you come back the next week and people love bund reports or whatever. You don't get very direct feedback. And the feedback that you get tends to be pretty negative, right? If you can actually run your service mesh yourself. Then you start getting, you get some deep insight, you know, if you are suddenly on call for this thing that you're developing, but suddenly, very different relationship with your end user. That's been extremely helpful for the project. And I think Lincoln has gotten a lot better because of that. So can you give me more insight into what it's like to run an infrastructure company? I guess I'd love to know if there's some unknown unknowns from my perspective. What keeps you up at night? Is it ability to sell enough infrastructure software, ability to keep up with competitors, is it fear of technical outages or do you just feel like everything is running hunky Dory at this point? Everything's great. The self managing machine, I don't even have to do anything. Get to sit around and do podcasts. Now, the reality is it's a real balancing act. And it's not just in infrastructure companies. It's an open-source infrastructure company, which has its own set of very unique and difficult challenges. Because we have to balance two things, we have to balance, first of all, the open-source community and the needs of the community and we want that to grow and we want the link or the adopters to be happy and successful, ideally, publicly, loudly publicly, successful. And then, of course, there's the business, which has to make money and that money is coming from liquor to the adopters, but we have to do that in a way that doesn't sour the community. So a lot of that balancing act and this is what I spend a lot of my mental energy on and what we're fleshing out. And I think doing a pretty good job on has been navigating that and knowing when to invest in community and when to start.

"But your website doesn't actually care about my browser. It doesn't care what my identity is. That's handle through other mechanisms. For mutual TLS within a Kubernetes cluster on service a toss to service B, they're both validating each other's identity. They're establishing a secure connection, they're communicating across that connection. And then U as the operator as a platform owner, you now know that I have security communication and someone breaks into the cluster and they sniff the network. They're not going to be able to get that data, which is important. There's no special if you have sensitive data. And there's some other nice guarantees as well. So summarizing that very long essay, mutual TLS is a very convenient mechanism for getting encryption of data in transit especially within the Kubernetes cluster and a service mesh like linker to actually is a very nice way of giving that to you. In fact, we can do it, even though even though TLS is complicated and hard and annoying, we can actually give it to you in the context of a Kubernetes cluster without you having to do a whole lot of work. In fact, we enable it by default, so the moment you install liquor and you measure your pods, you actually have MTLS between all meshed pods. Right. And I'm curious, are there other things you could bundle into? I mean, MTLS just getting MTLS kind of thrown into the benefits of having a service mesh deployed to your cluster. It's pretty nice. Is there anything are there any other features that you're thinking of building to could be other nice to haves to kind of bundle in with the service mesh functionality? Yeah, so as soon as you have MTLS, one thing that you have is you have identity. You have this really cool cryptographic proof of identity on either side and on top of that identity, you can now start building policy. So you can say, well, it's nice that your service a and you're trying to talk to a service B and you want linker to encrypt that connection and authenticate and all that. But is a allowed to talk to B you know, so we now with the latest release of linker D and two 11, we give you mechanisms where you can control that. You can say a is not allowed to talk to B or only this type of communication is allowed to happen within the cluster. So that's built on top of the same mutual TLS identity. So it's not tied to network identity, it's all sorts of nice reasons why we want to do that. It fits into this model called zero trust security, where the pod itself is the enforcement point. So we're not relying on the host for not relying on the network. We're not relying on some centralized service. We're doing all of our security enforcement at the most granular level. So that's one big feature. Of course, this is not there's a lot to security beyond this. You know, and this allows you to capture connection level security, but there's also request level things you might want to do and request level policy that MTLS isn't really going to help you with. And other classes of things like that. But yeah, policy is a big one for us. Like I said, two 11 introduced that at the connection level and the two 12 is probably going to continue that thrust, especially looking at policy around outgoing connections and not just incoming connections. Are you still.

"Retail revolution one year later to find out what is next for this trade. Joining us now is mat course. It's got to be in the game. Some of these names use both a long AMC and GameStop. Matt always get to speak with you. Welcome back. Happy to be here. Thanks for having me. So I got to ask you about AMC. And as you know, every trade has an exit strategy. What is the exit strategy now that the stock is 77% below its 52 week high? I mean, if you're hoping for the mother of all short squeezes, the opposite has happened. Yeah, so I think I would look at that for a couple of different ways. And of course, these are just my own opinions. Obviously, I'm not a financial adviser. But since the start of 2021 until now, AMC is actually up over 700% fortunately, I actually got in at first around the $8 Mark. So I think it's good to kind of see where this entire saga has actually taken us. But for me, my personal risk, I put money on the table that I'm willing to let this go to zero because beyond just like in the company, I really like what it stands for from a symbolic nature, both AMC and Genie pretty much fighting for market transparency. Are you hoping for a mother of all short squeezes, though? I mean, what do you think happens? Do you think it ever gets that high again? Or is that just naive? I mean, I'm not Claire buoyant. I can't tell the future. I'm going to hold, obviously I want it to happen. I would love to make this money. And I think with it, its success could in one way or another, hopefully be tied with getting some sort of regulatory developments forward making the market a little bit more equitable for everyone involved in it. So is this become solely an issue stock for you or do you think that this is a stock? I mean, you've made money on it, but nobody actually makes money on a trade until you exit the trade. And you lock in profits. So at this point, is this just for the cause of AMC? I would say with both AMC and G me, there's a little mixer both. Yes, I think it's for the cause. And once again, this is just for me. Other people might be in just for the cause, just for making the opportunity of making money for me, it's a little bit of both. For example, with AMC, I was just reading that the newest Spider-Man movie, 1.7 billion in the box office. There's a good chance that this upcoming earnings actually might go positive. And then in terms of gaming stuff, we know that they're getting into the world of an NFT marketplace, clearly they have a very indentured, I guess, group of people who are enthusiastic about it. And in 2021, NFTs, they had a transactional volume of $44 billion in USD. So I think they have both interesting things coming down. The pipeline that more of a classic fundamental analyst would actually be paying attention to. All right, Matt we got a rap at their big day in the market today as you know. Thanks a lot. We appreciated Matt Coors, and he's got a YouTube channel, which you can check out if you want. Nadine, we always talked about the retail trader last year of sort of being the incremental dollar in the market that helped the markets go higher. And here we are in this period of volatility that retail traders may not have ever experienced before. Is that a worry for you in terms of the pressure on the markets lower? It's less so for that and much more, I think that they're seeking more professional assistance. Most retail traders haven't seen a macro environment like this where the growth of GDP decelerating. They've never really had a risk manage not just individual positions to the degree they've had to the last few weeks, but their entire portfolio. So we have been just getting inbound floods of calls of people who were managing their portfolios who now want assistance. So this isn't a marketing place. This is what happens. This is what happens when how people were working before isn't working today. And then they realized, okay, I need a framework. I need a process. So I don't really view it as anyone stock or anyone meme or the retail trader. It's about the fact that especially in these types of markets, you need a process. You have to have something that works. All right, coming up. Microsoft on deck, the tech Titan reporting results tomorrow after the close. That's got option traders getting in on the action. The details went fast when you returned..

It's kind of the same energy that i think helped propel pay pal and earlier in his propelled his his career. You know ever since to be armchair psychologist. Is there an alternate reality where he gets a boyfriend. Because he's he's he's gay is gay Or just more nurturing parents or a friend or a buddy and and just feels a little bit less apart and there's just an alternate reality. I mean maybe but one thing. I tried to resist. I really did try to resist. Am trying now even to resist kind of armchair psychology rising because i. I feel totally unqualified to do it. but but i i will say as i think that yes the anger of the bullying there. There are lots of ways to sort of psychology is Somebody like this. He was also really really ambitious. And if you're really ambitious if you want to be successful the things he was doing. We're really smart things to do if you want to be successful. So you know there's this moment at stanford where one of his close friends. Keith roy hurled a bunch of homophobic slurs at a stanford faculty member till defends him and roy buoyant healer both gay. Of course so. It's kind of tempting to like psychology that somehow and say. Oh well they were self hating which may be but maybe they were also ambitious. You know in the late eighties. The best A great way to kinda get ahead to say. Get an internship. In the reagan white house was to do exactly this kind of troll provocation. And that's exactly what happened for -til you know. He got an internship at the department of education under bill. Bennett was off to the races. So fast forward all the way to trump like his betting on trump is a bet. It's a saying you know if i lose. Faith trump loses as he's host lose. I lost a million bucks. Who cares if he wins in theory. There's a big payoff for. He's not he doesn't like trump. he's a carly fiorina guy at one point and probably more of ted cruz guy but places about on trump. because that's that's the w- the odds are good. I think it's i. He did like trump. i mean. And i think he does kind of like trump. Although there's like on a personal level maybe not. I think it's i think it's pretty complicated. One thing about trump. So so it's true you. You could tell like a really convincing story about how peter thiel. donald trump are just like the opposite trump. Is this You know like. I said reactionary. He's from new york. He's from the real estate industry. That's that's mark. yeah or you know. He's but he's he's always telling people he's really smart so he's basically the opposite of -til who's introverted in genius type who's from an industry that despises real. Estate despises the kind of or claims despise. Anyway the kind of like gossip mongering rise that is propelled trump. You know on the other hand trump's kind of like the core of his campaign promise. was you know. I'm going to say the things that people are afraid to say. I'm gonna say things that are kinda borderline racist sexist anti immigrant. Whatever because you know the politically correct police. And i think that when you really get down to like that was a big part of trump's appeal to core voters and i think it was a huge appeal for peter thiel who's really like if he if you asked them to rank the biggest problems in the world he would rank quote unquote political correctness. You know in the top. I don't know probably like the top three or something. Maybe the name even number. Why do bouncer. I mean if you keep bouncing around time here but if you do you know y combinator as a off shoot of some of A message called hacker news. And if you wanna get a good sense for sort of the strains that peter thiel created and we came out of a lot of it can you can see right there and you get the sense that the a lot of people who are commenting there just are enjoy intellectually provoking someone or asking questions as we say And they may not be horrible people they just they just don't know why you can't ask a question or posit something that everyone else finds upsetting right absolutely and it's the and there's kind of as valuable even like that the act of of same slightly controversial thing or often or just asking the question. Why if you can't ask the question you can't shift a paradigm you can't think outside the box I'm not. I don't want to go over the entire book so i'm going to skip the entire pal story but it's great and most people Many people In technology today came out of there as you mentioned I wanna skip ahead to facebook and that investment so at some point Teal has done well enough that he has five hundred thousand dollars to invest in facebook. Is that a random sort of bet on his part or did he have real deep insight in the mark zuckerberg could that have been any other entrepreneur and it doesn't become facebook and he does not become fabulously rich. I think it's probably halfway between those two. Polls i mean he was making other little investments at the time but You know i think. There's an investment in linked in an investment in friendster. So you know he was obviously thinking about social networks interested about social networks and you know this is where you start to see the the impact of the paypal. Mafia reid hoffman. Who was senior executive at pay pal starts. His company starts couple of social networks. And i think that's. I mean that's how -til finds way to this world but you gotta give him credit because i mean mark zuckerberg in two thousand and five doesn't look all that impressive. I mean yes like a facebook is growing but like he's a basically a guy who sort of somewhat successful guy who got in trouble for doing vaguely icky thing at harvard university. And i you know and and of course you could see why that would appeal to you because peter thiel loves you know messing with university administrators. It probably was the number one attraction and soccer berg. I think has a you know some some things in common teal. And i think one i mean one. Crucial thing that You know a lot of people already know this. But one thing that -til did in that facebook investment. I think he. He originally loans. October money converted equity after facebook restructured. Its company and restructured it. In a way that gave zuckerberg basically absolute control over the company which he still has today and so teals been a really important influence in facebook but of course soccer. Burg's you know. Been running the show and and that's partly because -til set it up that way. Yeah if you love this scene in the social network where at the end where to water severin confronts mark zuckerberg and sean parker slash justin timberlake. You've got an alternate version of that. The more accurate. It's very good So -til makes hundreds of millions of dollars through that through that investment but then could have made billions but basically sold off all his stock around the time of the ipo and he remains on the board of facebook but what is his connection to facebook. Sort of beyond making money and beyond being the token conservative on the board. I mean he played a hugh. I think he played a huge role in sort of shaping zuckerberg in terms of his approach to business for sure and and i would argue ideological. You've talked about the the former talked about teals influence on him interservice how he thinks about startups and stuff. I think you can kind of see it in zuckerberg's sort of philosophical approach to both business and to the extent that he's he's been political politics berg a speech at georgetown university two years ago kind of arguing..

Automotive Predictions for New and Used Car Sales in Australia

"Maybe just to start off with. Can you give us. What do you think all the intimate going to have the biggest impact on the market this coming year and the volume for the market. Well this is a question. John because right now we seeing for the first time in as many months as far as this year's consent some movement in the exchange lost jae saw some walled swings in exchange but it settled at that made seventy. Us dollar price point for this try and dole out and around that sixty five euro in the last two months with the uncertainty around the recovery and the potential longer locked ends in sydney and the slowing of the australian economy notice buoyant as it was in cuba. One and q two of this year. What we're starting to see is the australian doll awaken. So that dollar is now pushing down towards the seventy three seventy two. Us sense and the euro is pushing down to toward sixty cents and potentially allow most people in this country look at shines right unless they're traveling advocacy so most people are very much oblivious to it but the exchange right as a significant. Bogey given that everytime this country is imported. Now we've had higher prices because of demand and supply prices up and there's been very little discounting from oem's and very little discounting from dealers so there's been good margins because it's been good demand but with potentially softening economy going forward the never ending bullish feelings that we've all had for. The last eight months may infect dissipate next year and what might be more of a concern is if the pay starts lifting interest rates and moving writes up will help the currency but the consent is that if you have. Us economy and global european economies coming out of covered and rebounding strongly with low interest rates and stronger. They more likely to move writes up. Ilia which will make the currency stronger and that will then is bad news for straying importers and ultimately customers because even though we might be traveling as we're still overseas products and products will start to continue to go up.

Covid vaccine: PM to have AstraZeneca jab as he urges public to do the same

"When johnson talks about the uk's world-beating response to covid nineteen vaccine pogrom passes muster. It's been an unqualified success or one of the reasons. His conservative party are so far ahead in the polls over twenty five million brits have received their job so fall but the government unexpectedly announced show fall in the number of vaccines delivered in april juice. Supply issues and the debate has a geopolitical angle. To given the you struggling with its own vaccine rollout slovan the line. The european commission president on the block might even consider export controls. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis of the century. And i'm not ruling out any anything for now because we have to make sure that europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible so sarah. Let's begin with the overall state of the uk's vaccine pogrom based on what was set out in december. It's pretty much all going to plan fairly high levels of takeover ninety four percent i believe and the government is insisting that all over fifty will have had their first job by the middle of april. So what's the problem. Well a week ago we would have said. This was indeed the most Astonishingly amyloid success and a sign of vessel. Buoyant moved around it. Was that the with some very clear briefing to a couple of the saturday newspapers suggesting that we were actually going to move to the over forty's much sooner than expected so it was a bit of a jolt to find out on wednesday that in fact. Nhs people involved in the program had been told that they must hold booking any new appointments throughout april because the been a sudden very significant reduction in the supplies available so that really has put the first serious dent in the narrative which right from december the eight. I think it was the day. That william shakespeare became one of the first two vaccine as now suddenly. The government is in the unaccustomed position of having to explain what's happening and explain why some of the public expectations that they'd raised so hard may not be met to be fair to the government. They still absolutely insisting they're on track with the two big dates that they've set for this program that all over fifty should be vaccinated by the middle of april. And all adult britons. Who wants a job will have had it at the end of july. But there's no question that it's been a difficult political management problem for them this week and very much not the position that they'd hoped to be in the club. Let's have a look at why this might be happening and seven. I spent a lot of this week speaking to people. Whitehall trying to figure out exactly what was going on behind the scenes with matt. Hancock gave us a of clarity in the house of commons and the government is pinning own production issues. The first one is this batch of one point seven million jobs that we sent back for testing and the second thing is the supply from the soham institute of india which again the governor's put down to supply issues but others are saying that actions being blocked by modi's government from shipping out to the uk. Exactly it is pretty opaque what's happening. There are two elements. Here that can hold up. Supplies one is the genuinely technical difficulties in producing a complex biological process. I mean it's not straightforward zanu vaccine and a lot of the manufacturing sites haven't made this sort of marin a vaccine before it scale factor. You could say none of them have because this is the first one. That's the fiso won. The astra zeneca at novartis vaccine is also level to a complicated process. So there are technical supply issues and then there at the political ones. You alluded to and i don't know whether the serum institute of india supply has been blocked for political reasons because india was having rather a good downturn in covert cases. But that's turning up again. Unfortunately and there are feelings. That indian government wanted to have it at home. This is so. I think if we look at the context of this a lot of it is actually not that much of a serious problem that we were crunching the numbers this week and april is a significant moment in the vaccine program for the uk. Because yes they were vaccinated all over fifty which according to people like christie chief medical officer of england which uses ninety nine percents of deaths on messages the pressure on the nhc s. But eneko you have to install the second jobs. Really the po- gum began to scale up towards the end of january and eleven week window. The nhl is set between the first and second doses. That really kicks in april and but hancock said this week that really still going to be delivering about fourteen million jobs throughout april which is low though. It's been in march but it's still a pretty high number so it's probably good to keep it in context with feels really what's gone wrong. Here is expectations that the rogue briefing about forty s really feels like delivers come off the bush tourism bush. Johnson's tried to restrain for much of twenty twenty. One yes and i think some. Nhs officials were less than delighted about that huge raising expectations last weekend. In a way. I think this was always going to be a difficult point for the program. It was absolutely predictable that at the point at which second doses to scale up there was going to be a deep in first doses. So it's perhaps unfortunate that there wasn't more subtle public preparation. You're absolutely right international standards even in april. We're still going to be doing more. Vaccinations than many of our counterparts. So it's particularly unfortunate wasn't better preparation. Because i think in the minds of a lot of britain's the will now be a sense of this program isn't doing well it's stumbled. It didn't have to be this way that it could have been very differently presented. And after all as i said the government is still on track to meet those two deadlines that it says now clive. We need to put this in the context of europe as well and we heard from s. the von d'alene at the top. That and you still really struggling with its vaccine vo loud but the most baffling things. She's seen this week. Is the story about the astra zeneca job and how effective or side effects. That may have in this concern. Over blood clots we heard from the ama from the nhra in the uk from the world health organization. All saying there are no concerns about blood. Clots and ashes annika vaccine yet at didn't stop lawson countries from halting giving out the doses. It's a very complicated picture on side effects. At least the spotlight turned away from efficacy. Before countries in continental europe were worrying that the astrazeneca vaccine wouldn't work well enough to older people. I think the efficacy questions have more or less be answered now. The spotlight is on whether they're adverse side effects and a few of those have been discovered there. These two different sorts of blood disorders do with abnormal clotting thrombosis that have been detected in people who just been vaccinated in norway in germany elsewhere on continental europe. The numbers are tiny. I would say fewer than twenty around the continent. Investigation is still continuing. There's no proven link with the vaccine. But a lot of vaccine knowledge ists the might be a link. But that is no reason to stop the vaccination program when it's saving tens of thousands of lives probably and people have said that just by halting for a few days the astrazeneca vaccination and continental europe. This week until the european medicines agency said it was okay that would have cost lives. It loves cost lives directly because people weren't getting vaccinated and it also probably unfortunately of cost lives indirectly because all the publicity about ad side effects will just undermined confidence in the vaccine

"I don't really think we need to make other changes to boyne to improve it. But the problem is i'm drunk and rowing when i'm drunk is not the best idea especially because rowing you get dizzy. In the first place that was actually a part of my What if everyone is fear. Answer is that you don't like Outcome was that you're dizzy. And that there's like no way to combat that other than just get used to it Those basically my solution being busy. 'cause that's like what dancers ice skaters do. They just do it a lot until they get used to it. It's not really gonna work for drunk though because just everything's just gonna be a lot worse and spinning or rolling when trunk. I didn't think it was a good idea. So i wanted to see like is their wagon. Like mitigate this or something so that i can roll down the boeing louis. So i want to see a flake. Dizziness from being drunk is from the same mechanism as Spinning i wasn't sure I looked into that and just to recap the cause of dizziness from spinning. I covered in ninety. Eight is due to the vestibular. Say he said s to bueller hundred vestibular system. that's the buehler buehler. I probably struggles that in ninety eight as well. But it's a system in your inner ear so you're in area has like fluids move around and then do you have centers that Sense the motion of that fluid and feel dizzy. Because of the inertial effects on that fluids have you spin for a long time then that fluid starts spinning and then if you stop spinning that fluid keeps on spinning for a while. So still thinks spinning. Even though you aren't that's why you feel dizzy now. Drunken dizziness is a little different. So normally you have a structure in your ear. It's called the ambulatory cupula and this is neutrally buoyant in the fluids that are in your ear. Neutrally buoyant means that it doesn't sink or float just like stays where it is because the same density. And what happens when you drink. Alcohol is that the alcohol causes ambulatory cupula to be less dense than the fluid which makes it float and this means that all all the gravity and rotational acceleration becomes more sensitive to your inner ear so like all the effect just become amplified. Now they call this quote unquote the spins. It has really nothing to do with spinning but it does amplify the effects of dizziness from spinney and there are some ways to reduce the effects of this so people say that you can like the best thing to do is ground your senses with touch in sight so they recommend like touching something stationary or staring at something stationary. That should help mitigate the dizziness. The doesn't really help us because we need to be rolling so he can't touch something stationary scared something stationary when rowing and then like the rest of the advisers just alike. Reduce the effects of drunkenness. By like eating stuff like drinking less also doesn't really help us because we are just constantly drunk. We can't reduce our drunkenness. That was love when there's like an advice column for like. How do i reduce the disney getting drunk. It's like don't get drunk. That's not really the question. I was asking right. Yes i agree that would work. But that's not really what my situation is here. Well in real life you could work just not getting drunk but in this we cannot not get truck we are always drink so there really is no way to fight the dizziness. I think it's kind of lost cause to fight it so my idea was just to embrace it so we are drunk..

Ocean stratification and what it means for weather

"New, evidence, our oceans are changing faster than climate models predicted. I'M NPR chief meteorologist Paul Kutner here with climate cast. A new study out this week in the journal Nature Climate. Change finds. Oceans are becoming more stratified warmer surface waters from climate change mean less mixing from deep in the ocean, and that produces a range of impacts from stronger hurricanes to changing fisheries. So how does it all Work University of Saint Thomas? Professor John. Abraham is one of the studies co-authors John Welcome to climate cast. It's a pleasure to be on Pau. Your study finds the oceans are becoming more stratified. What does that mean? Well, Paul we're having this conversation in fall in Minnesota, and I know that there's a lot of hearty listeners out there that still like to swim in Minnesota. Lakes and they know what stratification is when you jump into a lake, this water near the surface is warmer. And the water near the bottom of lake is colder and what's happening is the lake forms layers of water that tend not to move. They tend not to rise and fall in the lake they tend to be stationary in that process stratification and that same process occurs in a major way in the oceans. Okay. That's a great analogy, and we know that those lakes and Minnesota turnover in spring and fall when the temperatures become more equal and that brings oxygen rich water down to the depths. Is that the same in the ocean wise that deep ocean mixing? So important? Deep Ocean. Mixing is important for two reasons I thinking about the water near the surface of the ocean. It's been heated up by sunlight month after month. In that tribes storms. So one of the reasons stratification is important, is it fuel storms? The other reason it's important when the water near the surface falls down to the bottom of the ocean that pushes bottom waters up and the bottom waters are cold and filled with nutrients. So when upward and downward motion happens, it's bringing nutrients to the surface so that see life can thrive. So it's important for. Weather and for life what impacts can we already see today from the climate change that's already occurring when the surface waters get warmer become more buoyant in so as we're warming, the oceans were heating up the surface waters even more than normal and that's keeping the near the surface they don't want to mix. So how do the warmer oceans affect larger ocean circulation patterns like the currents in the Atlantic Ocean? And the current and the Atlantic Ocean are so key for our weather and in fact, if you've ever wondered why is England, which is at about our latitude, why are they so much warmer in the winter than we are and it's all due to the ocean. What happens is warm waters off our East Coast in the tropics flow up to Europe and they keep their heat and that really makes the weather in Europe very very mild and as we warm the planet, we are putting at risk this natural ocean current. In. If we go too far, we could shut off that current and that would end up changing weather all across the planet especially in Europe what does your study say would likely happen to these ocean circulation patterns in the next fifty to one hundred years at this pace. We do not know right now whether the ocean currents will totally shut down however. Our results are telling us. We need to watch this carefully and take action very quickly to reduce global warming because it's global warming that is increasing the stratification of ocean waters and making our weather more while University of Saint Thomas Professor John.

True Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest

Plastic Island

"Welcome to kiss. Myths and mysteries signed your host, Kit Chrome today, myth or mystery, an island of plastic floats around the Pacific Ocean. You may have heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But what is it out? Did it start and how can we do anything about it? The Great Pacific Garbage Patch name for a collection of marine debris that accumulated over time. Time due to converging ocean currents called Gyrus Gyrus are unique forms of ocean current, because they are large systems that move in a swirling motion, leaving marine debris, caught in their path to move and be trapped in the calmer, more stable Middle Shera. Two segments of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch exists in the Pacific. Ocean the western garbage patch which closer to. To Japan and the eastern garbage patch, which is closer to southern California and Mexico, almost entirely comprised micro-plastics, small pieces of plastic that measured less than five millimeters long and discarded fishing gear, floating the water surface, the Pacific garbage patch formed due to the buoyant and durable nature, these materials which allow symptom float for years in the ocean without breaking down larger and. And heavier pieces of debris sink. Likely there's even more garbage below. Either the two patches. In fact, scientists recently found that about seventy percent of all marine debris eventually sinks to the ocean floor where all the debris that comprises the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, come from an estimated fifty four percent of debris swirling in the patch originates from land in North America. America and Asia while another twenty percent likely comes from boats, large cargo ships cruise ships and offshore oil rigs that either lose or intentionally discard debris into the ocean once they're debris will float along with current until it ends up trapped between Chiara's for an uncertain amount of time. Marine debris isn't just unsightly. It is harmful to the plants and animals that call. Call. The Ocean home from entanglement of large migratory animals like whales to be mistaken for food by Sea Turtles Fish and seabirds, marine debris causes physical, and at times lethal harm to marine animals, micro-plastics and other debris can also harm plankton and algae by blocking the sunlight. They need to be able to undergo photosynthesis and produce energy for themselves, which causes harm. Harm throughout the Marine Food Web. Surprisingly marine debris can also serve as a vehicle for species to travel too far off habitats and subtle a new ecosystems, meaning marine debris can promote the spread of invasive species throughout the ocean prevention of the marine debris, entering the marine environment is the best strategy to prevent growth of the great. Pacific Garbage Patch which you can. Can do it home by reducing your own dependence on single use plastic items in your life, but the question I asked us I researched this story was. How do we get rid of this fine? Let's use single use plastics. Let's not add to it. But how do we get rid of what is already there?

Desert Island Recordings - Iron Curtain Innocence by Bobb Trimble

"As idiosyncratic and hyperbolic as we absolutely always are. We certainly are not the only Bob Trimble apologists in the realm of music writing a quote from the Private Press Bible. Acid archives starts with this description by Aaron Molinski on Bob Tremble. I will make the bold claim that Bob Trimble's to albums are the best self released albums not just of the eighties and not just the psych genre but possibly in all of rock. Bob's music is able to bring a listener into a new and bizarre world in mere seconds while both his first album and his second harvest of dreams our other worldly masterworks of detached Psychedelia today with to focus on the first. There are so many amazing private press albums that are true. `Isolation Records Nineteen Eighties Iron Curtain. Innocence is a perfect example for this case study because of its utterly unique sound and the decent amount of information available about the record which helps us a lot. It's a story that can be told with realistic honesty whereas so many other private press record just rumors and tall tales. In the beginning Bob Dribble owned just three rock and roll records the Beatles second album more of the monkees and dot records oldies collection featuring the Classic Sea of love by Phil Phillips. These record carry a weight that would mold trimble sound the Beatles buoyant harmonies the Monkees Mirth full melodies Phillips's soul-stirring reverb growing up in central Massachusetts. Trimble would eventually play in bands in high school and would end up on the outskirts of Forster's worm town scene which was primarily known for punk music. Trimble worked at his dad's bicycle shop in poured all his money into studio recordings and eventually into getting his records pressed Iron Curtain. Innocence started its journey. When Trimble wrote a song that he thought would make for great single one mile from Heaven. He firmly believe it would be the track that brought him recognition. It was also one of the first songs he'd ever written. He went to a nearby studio called country. Thunder sound and recorded a couple of versions of the song a longer and more complete version and a shorter more radio friendly version. The song he recorded for the B. side was called killed the hands of an unknown Rockstar. When Trimble received the completed forty five. He was disappointed with a hollow tinny sound and decided not to release it dismayed he thought about hanging it up and stopped recording for about a year stating. I just didn't think my songs were original enough and different enough boy howdy. He came back with a redefined vision of originality. He went to a couple other studios and recorded an album's worth of material iron curtain. Innocence was recorded without a band. Despite the violent reactions being credited on the record sleeve is just Bob with a couple of the studio engineers helping out on Bass and drums the recording is rudimentary and Lo fi. But at the same time it is distinctly layered with Beatles soundtracks and sprinkles of Mug embedded throughout. The engineer seemed to be excited to fully humor all of the bizarre studio request as a break from their normal home desires of the usual patrons where the drums are obviously vanilla. The Guitar is very distinct. For young. Inauspicious musician Trimble. Truly had a remarkable guitar sound that is fully realized in instantly recognisable which is certainly an exception from the typical boilerplate instrumentation and most private press records. Hell even a lot of the major label stuff too for that matter. Triples voice is without question the most enticing factor on the record a Martian Siren. Song that has a exotic glassy feminine presence. That soaks a room in dizzying desperation. Reality Tearing beautiful for certain but also very cold it's much closer to Marc Bolan. Warbling as he's using his feather boa to restrict his air pipe during auto erotic fixation or severe trying his hand at opera than it is to any of his beloved sixties Silky vocalist. The lyrics reek of loneliness. But in a clove smoking teenage poet sense more than a man at the end of his rope. Tired tropes and tiny fragments of generic psychedelic. Forgeries are present but still packing a motive punch when joined with Eleftherios. Voice and the scintillating guitar originally called World of Lies Trimble settled on the title Iron Curtain. Innocence as a on the ever presence of the Cold War a theme. That never seems to come up in the actual lyrics. Trimble had five hundred. Copies pressed bought the first three hundred and disbursed them as best he could. By hawking them at local record shops getting them in the hands of college radio deejays and giving them to friends and Family

Coronavirus and the impact on airline industry

"Not looking good for Virgin Atlantic. Yes so they announced yes to that. Cutting third of the workforce lots more than three thousand jobs. They've also said that they're going to be exiting Gatwick. Which has been its London base for thirty five years? They are still maintaining that base up in Manchester And this company had already actually been struggling with profitability for several years. So it's perhaps not surprising that they're really facing issues now. The government refused to Baylor saying that I haven't looked hard enough. Other investors elsewhere in the line is basically said that it's now fighting for its survival and that more measures might have to be introduced in the coming months and years and I think the story shows a few things it really shows that the week affirms a feeling the effects fast in an industry aviation industry which is struggling as a whole. And then there's also the knock on effect on airports Gatwick received a COUPLA recently. Be a Saturday causing flights out of their needs. Airports really depend on airlines for these lucrative slots so this is going to be a big problem to several people up and down the chain but there is good news for Wizar- Yes a Wiza- which is one of the airlines which has proved surprisingly buoyant. They managed to keep a large amount of cash surplus which has helped to tide them over during this crisis. And they're actually already. They've already resumed. Flights from Luton to some eastern European countries mainly bringing the seasonal farmworkers for example they brought over about hundred people lost Friday and they will announce that they're going to be resuming flights to Greece and Portugal from around June July to start tentatively taking holidaymakers abroad. They said that they will stop obviously wearing gloves. And now handout mosques to people that they haven't said that they'll be keeping that middle aisle seat free If if there is enough demand to finit they said that there just isn't evidence that that will reduce the risk of Jumps being spread. I mean we're seeing lots of airlines for instance. Klm saying that That they will be saying that. Mosque wearing is absolutely mandatory. But it's hard to see Without that middle seat being taken out how social distance thing. An and virus control can happen on aeroplanes effectively. Yeah I completely agree I mean on one hand. You are just got your. You have people in fairly close quarters in an airplane. The airplanes not going to be redesigned overnight people all within a mutual two of each other. Anyway I think a lot of it will center around. Different cleaning. Practices was the not going to have the magazine. For example so fewer and fewer touch points for people to transmit things and regular cleaning processes and staff updated on those sort of procedures Right well with the with airlines ca beginning to fly again. Airbnb is seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Tell us more about that. Yes this is an interesting one because AIRBNB They started out their financials. And it's not looking great actually for the company that cussing about twenty five percent of the workforce and their revenues predicted to hard this year. So that's sir drop of about two billion. And but they have said that they they're starting to see a tends to rise in domestic booking so obviously international travel is still looking shaky and wizards one of the few people and Kalamazoo said to start offering this flights but in places like Denmark and the Netherlands. For example people are starting to look into kings and make bookings to travel and holiday within their own country. And I think this ties in with a trend that we're going to be seeing a lot sort of rise of the staycationing this year as people pass aren't quite sure if they're ready to get on a flight or take an international holiday but they do still want to have a break they do still want to get away from from home so this this works with something that airbnb has already been seeing in China which is obviously ahead of the curve a bit from Europe where people are starting to travel domestically and take holidays within the country. Those name quite a little publicity around the fact that there are very cheap. Airfares out there at the moment. And also very cheap hotel bookings But it comes down to what the insurance policy is because we can book holidays abroad or indeed at home But we may very well may have to cancel them exactly. I think there's still so much uncertainty for people you know. I think people are desperate for holiday. It's been it's been really difficult. Few months vote for Europeans and for people all over the world. But it's just not clear whether for example be another spike in cases in your home country or the country where you're going to whether there's lockdown measures will change we'll more travel bans be brought in so. I think people are still waiting to see how things pan out in the next few months.

Now I have teiken to note What's been going on in other markets as well of light and the reason that I've been watching What has been going on of light in other. The markets is quite simply that I want to say. Is bitcoin going to remain a correlated asset class to other markets over lit so to skew off and do it signed thing lock? It was a surprising. Ten suppose intended to do back in the During inception period so on one looking at now is You know a US. Market that is is very buoyant on the dyes obviously has big full. But we've got we've got things like the Dow is up five percent. The pay five hundred is a four point six percent. These are very very very significant gains on these markets that you might not sound think that five percent means very much. 'cause y'all use to crip die but it does. It remains an enormous amount because these much more difficult markets to move because they have so much more liquidity so much more value With in these markets than we have in Crypto. A lot going on out there at the moment golden. Do a great deal. I can tell you that. Now it's at one point five percent. Silva's up point three seven percent. It was a global indices. That really did have a big move throughout loss not session. So what does that mean with? Bitcoin well bitcoin also with both the Dow. And the S&P WILL. This is about the same sort of area but four point seven percent which is where we sit right now on. Bitcoin. I- thousand nine hundred thirty two dollars. We are Joss shy all that nine thousand barrier. Will we break through? This is what's going to become very interesting for me as we have had. This push Now I'll say the market go into this. Non Thousand Air Inlet daily cradles on and then decline once again all is this gonNA be working to their weekly trend loving talking. Of course a weekly trend will always say. There is a pool by into that cradles Excuse me and it's holding route smack bang in the middle of that so as a guide to continue on that I certainly hope so because if we do get this little pull back and we do push to when you high then we are in really really good territory on the weekly so coming back to the daily of course as I said we moving up towards dawn thousands. GonNa be very interesting. Dichotomy Cinema. Can't just go in a straight line more or less at It's done from Wolfowitz. Lo Let's just talk. She's three this. It's low is about eighty four hundred four dollars to the high We were up. You know moved up. Five hundred. Sixty dollars already has a pullback of look at the lower timeframe so interesting to say. I'll we're going to save him a blow cell or are we gonNA see continued on with theorem now. It's higher than Bitcoin is up. Two hundred thirty starts at two hundred thirty one dollars and thirty four cents up six point three two percent and once again holding its ground a pretty straight round straight up on that weekly shot which is robin focusing a lot of my attention recently. Because that's where the trends bane. The weekly chart is looking very very nice indeed right now but of course it is just the first day of the wake conqueror myself just yet if the Kennels close like these are the analytic one it will be very boring like attracting. I'll tell you that much but it's It's looking very very nice. Six point two two percent up there on a theme with move across to pay next time pay did have quite a slide. Lost Weight Down Twenty percent but now it's helps a little bit rough five point. Two full percentage starting to try and claw back some of what it gave wide. Twenty three point nine cents right now again. Nothing really tribal. They're familiar be staring at on. These low timeframe are moving on bitcoin. Cash that three hundred thirty six dollars and ten cents up seven point. Seven four percent in that cradles on on the weekly found some pretty solo support three hundred dollars on the noise And has since moved? You know a good thirty six dollars above the rage and we'll see how a guy if we do get a higher lower their little pullback Really need to really look for opportunities to try this via big win today Currently the largest move in the top ten at two hundred and fifty two dollars on fifty one sense. It's up ten point three four percents every little bit of the trend there and I will be keeping a close eye on that to save is Pharma so little module and tried long movie becky in and around that to full he region. I'm still at the saw a wedding. See how that shot comes about to set up but it certainly looking a little bit better than it has done for quite some time lot. Coin Perpetual Right now. Sixty one dollars six cents. It's up five point eight two percent. It's not the greatest looking chart on the lower timeframes to be fed. We have a low low in the high on county. Do much with that. He has petrol three dollars and sixty nine cents up five point three percent and a guy in back in that cradles on the way clay looking to see if that's going to play not much more to say because it doesn't look right. Barnett's is a nineteen dollars and ninety three cents up five point three five percent. An arsenal moved once again. Needs to kick on to get about twenty dollars really off for Mehta have any real interest to put that high in will give me something to work with them. We got cow. Don which beautifully sitting on that weekly cradles on its pulled back to that. Full point six cents Support it's held its ground. It is holding. Strong is up eight percent and as full point nine cents a therapy classic as one that. I'm looking for an opportunity for a long today. It's back in that cradles.

The Zimbabwean Mastermind: Paul Le Roux

"In early two thousand nine thirty. Six Year Old Paul Roux was just beginning to branch out from pharmaceuticals into into more ambitious criminal. Ventures larue was high on his own power but he was also getting paranoid. That paranoia was making him distrust. Trust even is most seasoned employees like Call Center Manager Moran Oz as had no idea that he'd somehow run afoul of Larue. In fact all signs pointed to Larue liking him after ause arrived in Manila larue drove him out to the coast in his own. BMW AM W on the way they stopped at McDonald's for breakfast. Oz knew that larue was a rich man but he wasn't surprised by the breakfast choice. In in fact is was more surprised that larue actually treated him usually win. Larousse employees met him at restaurants he would only order food for himself so their next stop was the Subic Bay Yacht Club where larue paid in advance for houses hotel room. Oz would stay here overnight tonight and then meet the other employees as he headed out to the island of Seibu. The next morning is entered his hotel room that afternoon feeling buoyant. Not only was his boss having him oversee and expansion of his company are limited but he was finally treating is like a peer paying for his food in high end lodging of course as was wrong the entire story about building an Rx limited call center in Sibu had been in a trap now as was in the open ocean with a rifle pointed at him. After a few seconds of gunfire fire. Oz took a breath of relief. He wasn't hit a voice from ondeck shouted down at him. That was to frighten off the sharks. Don't think think I missed the next time will be for you. Dave Smith the talkative British man finally relaid Larousse orders from the satellite phone. When he told is confess and will kill you? Keep denying it and will wound you and leave you to the sharks. Your choice is wracked his brain. What could he possibly need to confess to? He insisted that he done nothing wrong. He hadn't stolen Dolan from the company he would never do anything without Larousse permission. Smith said something into the satellite phone Struggled to stay afloat while larue rude determined his fate after a few more tense moments. One of the muscular men climbed down the yachts ladder. And pulled is back on board is never knew what Larue said on the other end of that phone. Perhaps he only meant to scare him that day or perhaps as had managed managed to talk his way into a stay of execution when Smith brought is back to Subic Bay Yacht club he left him with one final warning. He said we are like an octopus. We have tentacles all over the world. You need to understand that we can reach you everywhere aware. Even in Israel you are not safe anywhere. The following day larue picked up is to bring him back to Manila as got into the car hesitantly. He didn't know what to expect from his volatile boss but his ride with Larue was his only way back home to Israel Summoned the courage to ask why he'd been taken hostage and tortured larue shrugged. He claimed to know nothing about the incident but he also showed no signs of surprise or concern. Instead he told is that he couldn't be held responsible for what is partners might do he said you. Don't want to deal with these guys. They will find you do whatever they say this. This was emblematic of how larue like to handle as business. He rarely solved problems personally. Preferring to issue commands from his phone or laptop up he controlled the action from afar like he was playing a video game like he was God larue also like to use mixed signals and subterfuge fused to keep his employees off balance. No single person ever knew how their role fit into the larger operation and they never knew how larue through really felt about them lose. Employees were doing a wide variety of work all over the world from fielding customer service calls in Israel L. Transporting gold in the Congo to scouting real estate in the Philippines to assembling a militia in Somalia but despite their different skill assets. They all had similar impressions of their mysterious boss. One of Larousse. fixers tim them back as best described Larue as a constant threatening threatening presence he said it was almost like the guy never slept and you never knew which personality you get on the other end when he called he never said who he was but you knew it was him sometimes calm and other times irate and most of the time you never even knew why when Larousse employees finally met him. They didn't know what to expect because there were no photos of him on the Internet but the first thing they noticed was his size is he was white about six feet tall with an enormous girth. The source of Laura's girth wasn't a mystery. He was known to favour fast. Food food like Domino's McDonalds at his desk rather than going out to eat a steak in most aspects of life he prioritized efficiency over quality. He usually dressed in a T.. Shirt cargo shorts and flip flops. The effect was disarming. One employee said nobody has ever thought the the first time they met him that he runs global criminal Empire Larousse accommodation's reflected that as well. He owned a series of high. End condos in Manila Hilla. But all of them were mostly unfurnished aside from couch bid and television but they ran up unusually high electricity bills. That's that's because of course he was constantly running fleets of servers. We're larue was casual about his home and clothing he. He was obsessive about his computer setup. He worked off an ancient laptop operating Microsoft software over ten years. Old sounds announce counter intuitive but he preferred this setup because he was able to fully encrypt the entire hard drive the moment he closed the lid of the laptop laptop the contents would be unreachable by any outsider. Programming and encryption had preoccupied larue since his youth in fact act computers were his. I love Paul was born on December. Twenty Fourth Nineteen Seventy two in Bulawayo Rhodesia Asia today known as Zimbabwe as a child a relative said that larue quote was fought over. Everyone wanted him. Our grandparents grandparents worship the ground. He walked on when he was a teenager. Larousse family moved to South Africa in search of better education larue resented and having to learn Afrikaans. The local language spoken in school. He felt superior to his classmates referring to them as halfwits and and morons his elevation came in his first computer. As soon as Laura realized he could build entire worlds in code worlds were governed by his rules he was hooked. One of Larousse Cousins Remembers Teenage Larue as quote completely antisocial Dole. Every time we went there he was always hold up in his room. I remember going in and seeing lines and lines of numbers on the screen and it didn't take Kim long at all to figure out how coating could start bringing in money illegally of course in nineteen eighty nine. The police leased showed up at Laura's Johannesburg home and arrested the sixteen year old for selling pornography in these early days before the Internet it appeared heared larue had revolutionized pornography distribution by going digital but the specifics to his operation. Remain Murky to this day. What we do know for sure was that Paul's parents were appalled but he himself just laughed? When Larue retold this story with with a plumbing pride he would recall how silly the entire situation seemed to him? Everyone would have praised him if he'd found a new method of selling books or Lennon's all this fuss just because his commodity was porn chip as long as Larue was making money. He didn't care what he was selling and even as a teenager he didn't care about breaking the law he didn't care about exploiting others later on that instinct would have disastrous stress results. Not just for larue himself. But also for his employees and the entire country of the United States

Parliament backs Brexit deal in decisive step toward leaving the E.U. on Jan. 31

"Will looking ahead to twenty twenty and one thing we do know is going to be on the agenda again is brexit Britain's departure from the European Union and re elected conservative government in London is pushing full steam ahead for the political deal by the end of January and a full trade deal with the European Union by the end of the year one of the old Meredith crowding I think it's possible to get a trade deal done in eleven months the question is what it would contain and so I think a comprehensive trade deal is very unlikely it took Donald Trump two years to renegotiate the US Mexico Canada agreement and that was after they already had a very well established draft taxed so you know less than a year for U. K. seems very ambitious and I think difficult I think if they don't have a very comprehensive agreement if they limited to certain areas like trade in goods maybe a little bit of trading services and will be more likely that they can get it through my best prediction is that you know we will have a break set but that there will still be some negotiations going on to make more substantive longer lasting agreement is that your is that your instinct and from yeah I I totally agree I think I would add two points if the UK wants to stocks the rolled down to deregulate its own economy I think the instinct T. on this side of the channel in Europe would be no way we can agree on a comprehensive deal and the other point is if the U. K. was to sell its crown jewels to China and really stocks entering into a an intensive face off negotiations and even an opening up to what's China that's very comprehensive think the you will will also be extremely reluctant to come to a conclusion with the okay so the the you really wants the U. K. as a strategic long term partner and not as a competitor well I mean it sounds as though if the worst case scenario seems to be disappearing as a likelihood of around breaks in the European Union right around rocks and this is another reason perhaps from moderate optimism in more general macro economic terms I mean one thing we haven't yet discussed on the show is the more general state of the global economy a year ago you were here speaking to me meditating on the potential risks of a global downturn in twenty nineteen phone deal curves what kind of turning the wrong way when they that never really happened the stock market is actually been amazingly buoyant in the last few months when we were much more watered in August and and September and then with some of the noise on trade going away as well as the federal reserve turning fully back to accommodation that has taken off some of the risk off the table it is clear that the central banks have lost any appetite for normalizing in the near future they probably won't until they see inflation staring them up front and center so that risk has been taken off the table what does that leave us that leaves some of the issues we've talked about trade but also geopolitical wrist let us not forget that something drastic in Hong Kong or in some other parts of the world in Saudi Arabia could come back to hurt the rest of the world matter does it it's the first decade I was reading since the eighteen fifties the United States has not had a recession the first deck I mean that's that's kind of why now isn't it it is and I think the risks remain I just don't seem coming up immediately there is a lot of political uncertainty I think with the democratic side new US election it's not clear if that's going to become a more leftist government or more moderate centrist government but I think even on the US side one of the things that looks clear as I think whether you get a Democrat or Republican in the White House next the US is shifted its gaze in word and so that something also it's kind of looming on the longer term horizon of two or three years out that there's less interest in engagement with the world and that could lead to more political risk abroad the one area of climate change we haven't yet touched on Gregory Raj and you've written about this recently it's an an extraordinary area at the time when as mentioned where old governments appear to be kind of pulling in the the drawbridges and not really speaking to each other as they used to of course the world is clamoring it would appear the people on the streets so many of them all clamoring for more engagement when it comes to international agreement on climate absolutely and we need action on climate change now the problem of course as you just pointed out with the governments looking to make the country's great again but not looking to what what's what's the world we have two big issues in front of any climate agreement one the countries that are willing to take action through things like carbon taxes are worried that the rest of the world would not follow suit if I may reduce the amount of coal plants for example in Europe but China continues building coal plants then perhaps the action itself is being vitiated so is it what is it is it than just the the the the CUSIP nous of individual politicians countries that have just thought this tool out against doing climate action that is just undermining everything I mean you know we've got willing governments in Europe but no where else is that what we're saying and I'm not just that I mean I I think if you ask Americans for example a fair number would say yeah we think it's an important issue but everybody else should also be doing something there so I think there will be more support for a global agreement but of course the poor countries say without the guys who put the carbon in there why do you want us to take stringent action which limit our own groups of we need to resolve these and this is what has in a sense stored climate she'd actions so far good travel who we just overstated the importance of public anger we just need to sit and wait until the current generation of politicians disappear no I don't I don't think so I mean we can't sit and wait I mean this problem is urgent and needs to be resolved by our generation and not by the future generations the U. S. now trying to push forward a very ambitious agenda of course that would be lots of a position within Europe on this as well but I think one key element is how to deal with exports and imports and term the exports of the European Union already contain less CO two than the imports another rates we consume more calling **** site then then be produce and an additional takes domestic tex would of course increase that imbalance so one has to find ways of adjusting for it intensity of imports and exports at the border and so this couple border adjustment is one way of trying to also chief war global leverage so because I mean you're saying that if the E. U. takes the stand it will set an example to the rest of the world well it for sure on that it's more than an example I think it's also a kia cost it's almost like a tariff unless you really make your production as efficient as its standard mystically you will find it very difficult to do to compete in the European market and so in that sense it provides the key financial incentive also for other countries that do business with Europe to adjust at the border of course it's going to be extremely controversial and especially the port emerging economies will claim that it's unfair and will try to jeopardize that at the WTO but I think this is going to be one of the big debates in trade actually next year another debate in trade maybe the pan African free trade agreement provides a religion it formally comes into being in July twenty twenty of because it's been in the making for some time aiming to create a three trillion dollar market can we be that optimistic around Africa's prospects with free internal trade when we have been getting more and more optimistic this is a young continent and there are increasing examples of businesses that are successful across multiple countries in in Africa so I think this is a very very welcome development I think that Africa me in fact be the continent of the future but it's sick extremely important that some of the things they've done very well of reducing the amount of conflict it cetera continue because that creates the environment full full commercial growth and there are some examples of new businesses in Africa which often offer a lesson to some of the other emerging economies for example impasse so which is the more by payment structure in in some parts of Africa I have actually been translated into India and a full written example which in fact is increasing inclusion in India today endear itself of course has seen slightly reduced for costs for growth in recent months I mean are you bullish about India's prospects at the school of course its prime minister Narendra Modi's been reelected this year and tensions appear to be growing ethnic que in parts of the country I mean does that have an economic risk attached to it the thing program it undoubtedly undoubtedly has and I have been advocating a refocusing on economic development and economic growth rather than focusing on the political agenda which the government has been following and I'm hopeful over the medium term India will regain the foss growth that it has been known for finally it has been a generally prediction free look ahead I think today I've been very gentle and all three of you can I as I always do ask each of you to make a tangible full costs small or big if you will for twenty twenty control well I think one of the big media mega trends that will drive also twenty twenty is artificial intelligence and the tremendous progress we are seeing in computing power all in machine learning and the way that will reshape all economies services service sector at all daily work life balance daily work

Ocean Cleanup Project Finally Making Waves

"From time to time on this program. We've checked in with buoyant slot. He's the Dutch engineer and environmentalist who's been working on a contraption to clean the great Pacific Garbage Patch. That's that's the floating debris field and the Pacific where one point eight trillion pieces of plastic have collected well. After many many setbacks boy and slots ocean cleanup project had some success right so thank you for joining us this week slot and his team presented a press conference to an online audience in a small. Oh crap of journalists gathered at the group's headquarters in Rotterdam. I am very proud to share with you that we're now catching plastics. Yes there's only two fence in a room with great. It is great but surely not the reaction that slot expected when he first dreamed up his plan to clean the ocean here slot explaining his original concept the first time we spoke in two thousand sixteen I envisioned an extremely long network of floating barriers there like curtains floating in the ocean and because it's an v-shaped the plus it gets pushed towards the center and that's the spot where we can efficiently extracted from the seawater and stored before shipping it to land for recycling well as we know slots idea didn't quite work as planned the path of progress wasn't exactly a straight line and we begun to refer to these issues that we had along the way as unscheduled learning opportunities and we had quite a few I i 's lot explained at the press conference. His device floated along with the oceans current at the same speed as the debris. It was meant to capture causing the system. Actually nuts collect any plastics mystics then late last year part of the structure itself fell apart forcing us to toews system back to port after six more months of tinkering the modified fight prototype was redeployed to the floating garbage patch and at this week's press briefing slot was long last able to share pictures of what the system has captured an enormous abandoned fishing net hard hats office chairs plastic forks and Y- car-tyre nobody that ended up there but if you're missing a wheel is let us know. Oh Boy am slot acknowledges that this batch of trash is only a small first step but by twenty twenty-five the ocean cleanup project hopes to cut the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in half.

U.S. unemployment rate hits 3.5%; job growth moderate

"From the Labor Department today that the US economy added one hundred thirty six thousand new jobs in September signaling that despite a a dismal report about manufacturing earlier in the week the US economy remains relatively buoyant. Mike Reagan is senior editor of Bloomberg News Mike. It's good to speak with you. You Superior and president trump seems pretty pleased with these numbers today. Let's listen the unemployment. Numbers just came out three point five percent unemployment and that is a tremendous number the lowest that over fifty years and so that's the president. What are you taking away from. This report is the lowest unemployment rate in fifty years nineteen sixty nine but the growth of the job market is clearly slowing down a bit and he can't say that based on just one month's report like this but if you look at at the trend over the last three or six months we're talking about one hundred twenty two one hundred thirty thousand jobs on average added per month. That's actually like the slowest pace in more than seven years. It's among the slowest pace since the last recession but it is still growth in the recession at the worst of the recession. We were losing like eight hundred thousand jobs so it is enough to to sort of knock that unemployment rate down a little bit more and we noticed the increase in worker pay. Hey was also down yeah a little bit lower. you know after coming up to some of the highest levels in the of this business cycle down the doubt back down to below three percent so not the most fantastic sign either earlier this week the. Dow dropped five hundred points following a some news on manufacturing numbers that had a lot of people worried they showed showed manufacturing in this country is at its weakest level in ten years so help us understand. Why are those numbers so low but these job numbers don't seem to be as effective. I mean again as you say we still added one hundred thirty six thousand jobs to the economy so this sort of temperature her of the manufacturing sector comes from a report by the Institute for Supply Management and this is the second straight month that it's shown the manufacturing industries are actually actually shrinking and the thing about manufacturing is it's only about twelve percent of the economy the worry is that that weakness will all spread into the much bigger services sector of the economy and in fact the ISM's report on service industries actually was very weak still growing but just barely and falling to the lowest weakest level in about three years so it is starting to look like there is a a little bit of contagion from manufacturing into the services sector but it is still growing and it hasn't quite enough to really damage the job numbers to significant significant there are so many reports out there are so many statistics and you can read them in so many different ways it just it's like it's hard to make sense of what yardstick we should be using to measure the health health of this economy. I absolutely and you know I think you ask the question what was causing this weakness in manufacturing the ice report basically points at the trade tensions and that is such a big question mark for the economy because it's something that could be resolved instantly or near instantly and we just don't. I don't know if and when that will happen so you look at these numbers and you think while they're weak now but as soon as we reach a trade deal with China they'll turn around but but it's just so many unknown so much uncertainty surrounding when that may big picture tends to evolve over time and become more clear we'll see Mike Regan senior editor Bloomberg News. Thanks for your time. Thank spear

U.S. Officials Say Russian Aides Orchestrated Murder in Germany

"Reporting that. US officials now believe that Russia was behind a murder that happened in in broad daylight in Germany last month boy am Manchevski is in Berlin where the killing happened so buoyant walk me through what we're reporting here will basically would seem to have happened is a a man was executed in broad daylight in central. Berlin in a park full of people and it is believed by investigators that the killer was a Russian citizen who had been given a real passport with a fake identity by the authorities of Russia in order to be able to perform this murder. The the man who was killed is a former Chechen rebel commander. It's not clear who commissioned the murder but it would appear that it says similar setup like a number of other killings we have seen in the West and elsewhere that were basically by Russia or health by Russian security services services and you're right the one reason the killing is interesting is that it indicates that Moscow is ramping up an assassination campaign against. It's perceived enemies abroad ride. Can you explain will because there have been a number of similar incidents in the in the recent past I mean some of them are not that that high profile tree in Turkey there was one in Ukraine and then there was the really big one in England which attracted enormous amount of media attention also because of the method that was used obviously they used the military nerve agent so so basically Russia has four any even in two thousand six in any said Russia and the Russian government has made it legal to execute sort of enemies of the state their own citizens who who flee abroad so essentially they have good form in in doing these things in bumping off Russian citizens abroad and if this were to be a another case like that than it will inevitably lead to tension between Europe and Russia and especially between Germany and Russia and for now would be it it would appear that the Germans the one to to create the attention so they've been keeping a lid on the whole investigation. They've been trying to leak any details of this so I think our report will probably put some pressure on German authorities to release more information about what actually had happened so Russia has denied involvement. German officials are staying mum and meanwhile the US is saying that Russia's definitely behind it all. Where do we go from here think of is the Russia always denies these things and that's that's to be expected but what is important ear in this case is that the killer the suspected killer was arrested and easing in in custody in Berlin so investigation is ongoing and therefore inevitably evidence will come to light as to who commissioned him to WHO execute the victim and why that happened in how it happened so the details will inevitably come to light so even the Germans have been very discrete I think they will have little choice but to release new information about the investigation and eventually they will be trial. This is will inevitably during trial things come to light and I think essentially I think we'll hear much more about this case because Z. would-be in recent time for Russia to murder saw on the streets of in such a sort of obvious way okay so I think I think this has a potential to develop in in a in a sort of international scandal.

"Oh series lead calcium. I'm here in Victor Oladipo got medical clearance to leave Miami to attend tonight's game. So we. Is this some sort of win one for the gipper situation? Are we going to get an enthused Pacers team because of his appearance? Sarah. I think I think they were going to get a bump just from coming home. Anyway, I think the phone maybe puts it over the top a little bit for a little jolt of energy should be the building should be electric. I know people went down. I'm sure I wasn't the only one that's it Indiana's done. Don't see they're making the play offs. Or at least know, maybe this is an eight seat, and they performed way better than I thought they could have. I know they you'll like they left a ton on the table in the two games in Boston. Even though they left they let both games by double digit somehow in a series. You know, they felt even come close to scoring one hundred points. But it's what they do with it. You know last year they played a great game three here against Cleveland in the first round they end up losing that series and seven they're going to have to find a way to contain Kyrie Irving. If he's going to be the closer that we've known him to be the last two years that we saw him perform. About game to the other night. Yeah. You mentioned the low scoring being issued defensively they can hang. They don't really have a go to score with Ola depot out. Do you think somebody who is that needs to step up and be dominant? Or can they get it done with the team approach? Well, it may game three reference year ago buoyant buck dot of it went off. I mean, he was seven of nine from three scored thirty points. When old depot went down. He kind of picked up some of that scoring flack. So he may have to be the guy. I mean, west back has a history of having some big games over his outstanding career. But I think it's just a collection. They need guys to perform the way they performed the late demonise Savona who could be I don't think he'll win six man of the year, but will probably get top three boats somehow scored one point in game two and he headlines that second unit they gotta get scoring from him miles Turner. You know, hasn't been a high scoring dive advocates thirteen the game. And he's average. About six so far. So I think if they can if they can get the scoring from the guys who usually have stepped up they're going to be in a much better place. But it might be bagged on of who has to come to the rescue. If if we have Goto situations down the stretch tonight. Cast assurance Spain. And fits he'll be calling game. Three of Celtics Pacers tonight on ESPN radio. Coverage starts at eight eastern..

"Yup. And we'll so one thing that's not necessarily positive. But ultimately is is this this year next year night twenty nineteen twenty twenty. This is a these are this is a a rough transition period, and you know, their years after this. You know, we will look just like we look back at like, oh two thousand eight nine all dude. I got fired. I was out of work for nine months. You know, you'd be like that was rough, but you know, life continued after that. And so, you know, remember one of the ways to work with Saturn and Capricorn one of the things that's helpful about Saturn and Capricorn is it can be very good reminder to look at things in terms of cycles and to look at things historically and not to get sucked in to one point in time line to the point where your vision of that obliterates everything else that's a really good point Austin. And a you when I think back to two thousand eight the other point I like. To make a big difference between what happens collectively and what happens personally that. Yeah. There was a lot going on two thousand and eight. But I know for me that was amazing things that came into my life. There was huge transformation in that year. But there was also a lot of happiness and a lot of excitement. So. You know, that's pot of this this process. The other thing that we haven't touched on yet that I'm just going to throw in. He is since it's like super capital. And I mean as you clocking through the days, Chris once the sun back to Chris showing build up at like twenty two corn where like the mercury sun comes in. Yeah. That's a four plan conjunction all like twenty two Capra corn in in early to mid January. But before that, we get a solar eclipse on Christmas. Yeah. Yeah. So the one cultural movement that I'm watching that. I think really speaks to the south noting Capricorn and his amplified by all the other transits with planets moving through Capricorn is the minimalist movement and the idea of voluntarily reducing one's Stoffel ones positions that idea of purifying where we have the basics we have what we need. We have the essentials, but we don't have anything suppose superfluous or excessive. And I think that's I don't know. Maybe that's the Kelly Spain on this. Which is this is a great time for decluttering and poaching, whether it's physical possessions like you have too many pets genes or you have too many books a whether it's that you have too many commitments, and there is congestion in your schedule with your time. This is very much about coming back to basics coming back to core. Doing what really matters and not getting distracted by anything else. One hundred and. Making the most out of what you do have instead of focusing on what you don't have and maximizing that to to its fullest potential. I mean because I Jupiter in 'Capricorno, and I think that's a fine placement. Your known your buoyant Jupiter in nature. Exactly. So that is what what Jupiter and cabraha corn is like if if anybody needs an example, but but definitely taking advantage of of what you have available to you and learning how to get the most mileage out of out of that. That's great advice, Kelly, totally and let the the I couldn't agree more that Saturn south notes of says less is more very fatty cly. You know, you don't need to get stronger. So you can carry more you need to carry less and you'll feel stronger. Correct. Yeah. You don't need more organizing things from the storage shop, you actually need less things full stop and the idea of tiny houses..
