WHO Team Reconstructs Origins Of Coronavirus Outbreak In Wuhan
"Of World Health Organization researchers is back from Wuhan. After some delay, they gained access to the Chinese city where the Corona virus was first identified. Marrying Koopmans, a member of that team wanted to learn more about the origins of the virus. We have a much better understanding of what the situation was in December and Ron and we have some next step questions that can be addressed. The team found out that the virus was not widespread until late December of 2019. That timeline means a lot because Chinese authorities are littered the world soon after. Opens, is a Dutch for ologists and says disease is similar to this kind of Corona virus or usually introduced by animals in this case, likely of bat. But how did it reach humans? That was a question they asked in Wuhan. Let's listen. We really reconstructed every step in that initial outbreak to understand what the people that had done that had learned had seen had done and then had additional studies. So that's the process that we did Was this in a way the world's most important case of contact, tracing trying to get back to something like a patient zero. In my view, it is And trying to understand really the basis off it. It sounds academic, but I do think we have to learn from these events. Are you pretty sure that the market was the place where the virus made the leap from animals to people? So the first cases that were detected were linked to the market. But it's clear that s O. Now There's a bigger list off cases that are confirmed, and it's clear that not everyone is linked to the market. So what was also done on this trip is to try and get genetic sequences from patients on the market and elsewhere. And you there also see it's the market is not the whole story. The market has been One of those spreading events, But there also was circulation outside off aside from the market, and this is a long way of saying We really don't know so the market has amplified, but Even if you don't have a case that has not linked to the market because off this stealth mechanism off spread, it can still be linked somehow, but because someone picked up an infection from Another person that was at the market. So if there's a lot of evidence pointing to the market, but maybe not all the evidence necessarily pointing to the market. Is there any other location? That's a suspect in your mind? So other markets. Uh, that's that's clearly there. And the what? We have recommended this really to walk back from those markets. Follow the supply chains go to the farm, see where they are. And it's that's already uh don. That will be in the report that there is those supply change do lead to regions where there's also the hot spot for the the best coroner verse so that Z a line to follow. You probably also are painting at the laboratory hypothesis. I'll just raise it because people raised it. Is there any evidence or can you rule it out? You know they used for So from everything that we've looked at, and we've also visited three laps in in the loft and also three labs that work on these viruses. From that We have not been able to find any credible link there. How open and transparent where the Chinese once they let you in. Off course this is a topic and the mission that is their sensitivities around it, if only for the death, of course. Big political tensions that are around it, and that's something you cannot completely avoid. In a situation like this. But once we got out of our quarantine got into the face to face meetings. I think we've managed to get into real good scientific exchange with Steve discussions here and there because to start from different backgrounds and different fuse, But I tell them who on wait and read the report, and that's let's discuss them. But I think we managed together good. Outcome of this meeting. I think it was in that sense quite successful. Is there anything that you think it's necessary to know that you don't have access to Not really. So if you say did, uh, the Chinese colleagues hand over the complete raw data files? No, they did not. But then again, I did not expect that in a mission like this. Um, so we've seen a lot of information has been given a lot of information We've had Access to the people working on the data aggregating the data looking at work, Except question is that you use what does the data file look like? That to me, that is quite extensive data access. Marry in Cartman's a Dutch virologist just back from China. Thanks so much you're welcome.

Alfonso Gmez-Rejn Plugs Into The Right 'Current'
"Today's show Kenny and Cartman in the South Park kid It's are in the middle of a big bidding war then Alfonso Gomez Ray homes movie the current war went into limbo because of Harvey Weinstein's troubles but the director let it go I couldn't stop because it wasn't hadn't been ripped away from yet and is more Aziz right wing nationalism turning off a large part of his fan base all that coming up on the frame Bloomberg's Lucas Shaw is reporting on a potential landmark deal for the lucrative streaming rights to a long running animated series before we hear from Lucas here's a clip from the show that we're going to talk about that got it banned in China here's the character that is fair to say represents the Walt Disney Company you are fat diabetic bear and if the Chinese don't watch you then I don't either now as Mr Marsh that's me randy marsh who is I don't know you are you from Pixar from South Park what South Park do I all not no not yet not yet and probably not soon that as South Park it just launched its twenty third season all old episodes of the series have lived on Hulu for the past couple of years but now the show's owner comedy central is looking for a new home Lucas who's chasing it and what kind of numbers are we talking about they are training get about five hundred million dollars or as much as five hundred million dollars for a four or five year deal and have have half a dozen companies bidding on those right they hope to get a deal done by the end of the year and I would expect you to get announced well before okay I gotta stop half a billion dollars for a couple of years for South Park we've seen deals for friends for the office what is happening here because that money seems crazy you mentioned into the office Big Bang theory has gotten a big deal Seinfeld got a big deal the money for South Park is in the Ballpark of those the thing to keep in mind to south park has more episode than any of those so that both inflate the overall package but the price that has been paid per episode decided think about it is actually a bit smaller than the other ones but what's happening is you've got this this race to build all these new streaming services you have comcast at and T. Apple and Disney all creating new services all meeting properties that people will want to watch in between those originals and the case of South Park it's one that has been very popular on Hulu and has a passionate passionate audience I think a lot of people are figuring if you go out and you license South Park not only is that GonNa bring in some customers which is weird for reruns be of more than three hundred episodes for people to watch at any time they're very watchable we're talking Luca Shaw at Bloomberg about the potential big deal for South Park does this fall into the whole idea of kind of a loss leader because there is such an arms race for content right now Netflix earlier this week borrowed another two billion dollars and has more than thirteen billion dollars in debt they're spending a lot to create an acquire content when you're thinking about a show like South Park what is the appeal of it does it bring people in who might not subsist arrive does it make those people happy wherever it ends up what is the benefit for a streaming service if you're maybe actually GONNA lose money on the deal I think it's a bit of both I think for most of these reruns especially for shows like friends in the office you're not bringing in new customers with those programs nobody is subscribing to each Max v because they're friends just like nobody subscribed to Netflix because it had friends but they're really good for retention and keeping people there in the case of South Park again so many episodes it just is a lot for people to watch so let's say for example Hbo Max five the Rights That means that for review or maybe inbetween washing succession and watchmen they might binge watch a few episodes of South Park and then a Lotta this in in my opinion is just defensive what you've got is these companies I've seen net flicks build a massive audience with their properties and with big old TV shows and movies that they had seen as not as valuable and even though net flicks is now not renewing its deals for a lot of them they just they can't stomach the thought of seeing that vacuum up these properties and continue to build an audience they want to go out and get some of these big names get a lot of headlines and show that they're in the game and so I think you're seeing prices for all these things go way up in large part because these companies have to atone and make up for years of bad dealmaking with Netflix I'm wondering about branding because if you look at Zinni plus they have I think five distinct brands it's Disney Pixar Marvel Lucas and nat go they're probably not that interested in south park giving what the creators have said about their own company but are there certain shows that fit into certain models in terms of what the content is better than others yeah I can look every service is working to define what their proposition is to consumer you know you mentioned Disney plus one hundred percent right that is not a place for park but Hulu which is also owned by Disney is where South Park has been and does a little bit more into that brand offering HBO Max makes a lot of sense shows from HBO which are obviously you know John Oliver has no problem thumbing his nose at his new corporate parents that at and T. You could see south park fitting there does South Park's bid that's something like peacock which is the service coming from comcast that's hard to know because we don't really know what the identity is of comcast South Park feels like a stretch thing like apple I could be wrong maybe apple go in and buy it but apple has thus far not bid on a Lotta Library shows and apple similar to Disney is very sensitive of its end image and I'm wanting to be relatively family friendly apple also has a huge business in China so the fact that South Park has just offended the Chinese government make the topic proposition and let me ask you this one last question South Park even though it's not at the top of the ratings has been incredibly popular for comedy central does that mean that that audience could be equally big on a streaming service I think it could especially because South Park core audience is a young man I was speaking with the former Viacom executive earlier this week and we asked him have how big South Park was for comedy central and they said that South Park was the most important show on that network it was not only the most popular one for many years it might even still be now but it was the one that sort of fed into the other programming because it spoke to that core group and frankly young men are the customers that have been most likely to sign up for streaming services early there what the industry thinks of its early adopters and so if you've got a new service and you've got South Park near betting going to probably help them in getting some of the young men in the door

"Joined another law firm with the intent of effectively marketing assistance with this the law that he had created i mean that that seems to be kind of the modus operandi though just in general in government at least in the us and i assume and other places to is just that these are not what you would call silo institutions were people go in and decrease on government servants these are like career steps where you do something which then gives you the ability to leverage that something into a much more valuable private career and again and maybe even there's a revolving door where you come back in and go back out i cropping crease in i firmly remember how the system works right and this is how the system works this is what it means to gradually eroded until you completely discarded the concept of the rule of law and instead using governments to to further private interests and a you know it's not surprising that this is happening in the us is specially not surprising that this is happening in relation to financial services at the end of the day what this is more than anything else is not an attempt to protect consumers it's an attempt to protect incumbents from being disrupted and that's attempt will fail they will try to prosecute these eighty companies that they've subpoena door some of them to make example solve them in the end result will be that jurisdictions like switzerland's jurisdictions like singapore and hong kong that have decided to normalize the rules and provide avenues for legal operation of initial coin offerings and other types of fundraising activities will pull all of the activity in their direction and the us will become a backwater of banana republic politics for icy owes that's it they will fail in this attempt to stop disruption of incumbants all they will end up doing is disrupting productivity growth innovation jobs in the united states.

"So it seems to me that this thing would circle and also to a lesser extent my irritation with the things going on with the sec has a lot to do with who sets best practices because for a long time and cryptocurrency we kind of said that there are no best practices there are just first practices and some first practices works them first practices don't and people treat first practices that work like best practices because they're kinda the best thing we have released the closest thing to that that we have so in this case it seems like this new action leonard gives circled the ability to effectively set best practices here and similarly in the ico space where were it looks like going to see the sec start to crackdown it's been kind of interesting there because i you know i know i have mentioned over the last year kind of my journey with looking into how to actually legally do an ico four token lee and some of the products were creating and i gotta tell ya you know after having spent pretty much from june of last year through you know last month which would have been february the whole ico thing is a total trapped the way that it set up it's not at all obvious that it's a trapped when you first look at it when you first look at it as an entrepreneur it's like oh this is a really innovative way to raise money because i can effectively sell something that is different than equities or not giving up ownership in my company but i am able to raise money and maybe even raise more money than i could with equity because people are so excited about this product but what isn't properly communicated and really where i fought the sec quite substantially is it it is not very well communicated that none of these things are legal and that really the problem with fundraising has little to do with the token or the vehicle the tree using in order to do it at all it's simply has to do with the fact that there are a lot of laws that you need to comply with if you're going to be illegal company or legal individual even in order to fund raise any money for people and.

"That when venezuela said hey we're going to legalize mining just let us know all the mining equipment you have is any more positive a sign of the sec saying clean this up and then we'll let you have your exchange because they might stirred delisting legitimate projects when it comes to the law if a regulator did it they would apply to who law if they ask a private company to do it a private company gives them slows greenville of a buffer of conservativeness around the law and they would be more restrictive than anything that the law would have gotten away with because they have to protect their interests which basically subverts the rule of law completely i mean the whole point of law is that it's removes ambiguity and offers an equal level playing field for all outsourcing those decisions through prosecutorial discretion and special favours and protected industries to single private company is a complete bastardisation as a rule of law and is typical in the financial services and but it's also typical of crawfish you so for instance in a very fair way if i had something that i could only extend to people i trust and andrei psychology though you but let's say my brother a mock my brotherinlaw asked me to do exactly what you asked me to do he's family i implicitly trust him more sure i'd have a lower risk profile for what he wants to do with my assets than what you might want to do with my assets because he's family and that's how you end up in the latin america probable where you have these private people get state crafted authority and then just by the process of risk profiling there are obviously gonna risk profile the people they know with relation to the lower than other people and then you know you get in a situation where the only way you can do businesses if you're married to the guy who does business but the guy who's going to that until eventually you come full circle which is where hugh gets enough political power to appoint the very people at the sec who decide these roles and then we've gone full circle.
