Q. U. A. W. K. and that's a Bloomberg business slash Tom and John thanks so much room for on time king were focused on the markets will get to that in a minute right now we're thrilled on the seventieth anniversary of what my our ought to Meredith Sumpter with this of Eurasia group Meredith John I believe general I can't remember the blur the morning the president tweeting out congradulations president Jean on the seventieth anniversary translate that how is it treated by the Chinese and how is the president's congradulations given the span of seventy years in US Sino relations. the president's offer greetings and congratulations on the seventieth anniversary I'm sure will be warmly received in Beijing but it does not fundamentally change the underlining constraints of these the world's two largest economies finding some kind of reconciliation between their two economic models so look we're we're we're looking at the prospects for some kind of not a full fledged deal but even some kind of of modest agreement or arrangement when we'll hook comes to Washington next week that would at least sort of ease an armored escalation of tears that's what she's in pain is really focused on too he has is not interested in any comprehensive deal with president trump I he views president trump as weak beholden to the ballot box even further weekend after the the threat of impeachment and impeachment proceedings which Eurasia group believes will result in the house voting to impeach the president to replace at a seventy five percent probability on that so what we we see the Chinese doing essentially with and and I know Tom you in general so watches as well there's been reports that you China is going to move forward with some soy bean purchases they are moving forward with you know some further slight openness financial sector they're doing things to allow for an easing of current tensions but they're not interested in fundamentally coming to the table with the kinds of structural reforms that from Washington says is necessary for a long term agreement to take hold I think in Sumpter speech on that was called a complete cave by the United States Meredith would not be somewhat disappointing if that's what we do get after spending eighteen months to aggressively take on the Chinese to do what many people agree is the right thing to do to get them to open up to get them to level the playing field wouldn't be somewhat disappointing that they caved and absolutely achieved very late. tell. that's exactly right John and and and this is why we have this sort of paradox in Washington right now where you have a president because of the political risk from impeachment he is primed to find some kind of arrangement and keep in mind he's got to keep those Republican senators on his side I and they're telling him you need to stave off on the hour escalation of terror so he's got that on the other side he's got nothing from Beijing on the fundamental asks that Bob white Heiser has been putting on the table consistently since September twenty seventeen and Beijing is just waiting to see who's gonna be elected in November twenty twice so I think the risk here for investors is not so much was happening the trade space but the real game is going to come outside of the trade space because the trace basis kind of static right now so you got a look at the at the national security or the the non trade areas that's why the announcements on last Friday and you know continued over the weekend of potential increase US scrutiny of Chinese companies listing on US markets it's that kind of onboard escalation outside of terror of that we're gonna watching fourth moving forward I would suggest that maybe what we could do is is half the present throughout the first baseball at the brewers national game tonight that would be a good start. motive just to wrap things up I'll go to question with you is often to get insight as to what is happening with the Chinese press I'll be ready in three to find out from you just have this impeachment inquiry of speak plus he's playing in China right now what's the story the Chinese people being told and how's it resonating with the government. at in this week if the focuses less on the impeachment and more on the seventieth anniversary and so that there hasn't been as much speculation in Chinese press about it it do it's a very foreign concept I think for the Chinese people to look at what they would presume to be the most powerful political operator in the United States the most powerful country of the world being humbled in this way but you know if you talk to Chinese contacts in the negotiations around the negotiations this just further confirms for Beijing that time is on their side and that as you know president trump deals with these impeachment proceedings and the political embarrassment to him of being a peach even if it's not going to be removed from office you know from Beijing's perspective they're using this time to double down on economic resiliency so as you know tariffs go up with US they look for other ways to get tears to come down with other trading partners are looking for ways to reform their economy in in China's own view of how its economy should be reformed to strengthen it for a long term confrontation because they know regardless of what

China lays out official stance on trade talks with U.S.
"Asian markets were slightly lower this morning following steep falls in the US on Friday. But one thing that's cheering investors a paper published by the Chinese government over the weekend. It signals that the country might be willing to take a more conciliatory tone when it comes to trade negotiations from Hong Kong. Quentin Webb has more choice over the weekend released sort of government white paper, laying out some of the position on trade tensions. And I guess there's something for everyone in this, because on the one hand the optimists point to a certain kind of moderation in the tone. So we have had some quite vicinity comments in the Chinese press and elsewhere, recently, where the tension seems to be amping up a bit. And this actually does all of detail spent in this paper sort of toki, Matt, how the US and China can work together in a spirit of mutual cooperation, and everyone can benefit, so. It does look a bit more conciliatory. But I should say as well as being something for the optimist here. There's something for the pessimist too, which is that they very clearly reiterate these three conditions that they say have to be met for. That's be any trade deal one is that the US has to walk back all the tariffs they've imposed in the last year. Or so, the second is that the US has to be realistic about how much more China combine intensive extra goods on the third is that any agreement between the two sides needs to be balanced.

"To the world old world. John batchelor. Seventy seven w ABC. I welcome list because the markets these last days have shown an inclination go up and down, which is what markets do. However, in this instance, it looks like the up and down. This is related to the opinion of the China confrontation. We have news, almost every moment about either China being suspect of stealing or China whining that it's being bullied by the Trump administration or that Europeans claiming the Chinese are still stealing technology, enforced talk knowledge, transfers or the Chinese themselves pointing fingers at Donald Trump saying that he's not reliable as a leader of the United States. All these things are vailable to the market each morning, and that might be an explanation for why the markets go up and down. Liz, a very good evening to you. We're talking on the market update. Now, tomorrow could be down again who can tell. However. None of this looks profound. What was significant in these last days, I believe, is that whatever the outcome of the China trade, negotiation, there looks to be progress a with regard to the trade treaty with Canada and Mexico and there looks to be progress, or at least they called off the the end of the world with Europe. Good evening to live. Good evening. Yes. I think that's actually rather, rather encouraging that President Trump rolled back tariffs on steel and aluminum that had caused such friction with Canada and Mexico. And yes, I think I think the Democrats are going to have to go along with passing the US MCA, the rebooted NAFTA agreement, they have a cues Trump, of course of, you know, busting up all our international relationships and our treaties with other countries that are establishment, sort of icon, ick agreements around the world and here, they are standing in line in, in the way. Ratifying a pretty decent reboot of a long standing trade agreement, which I think all parties benefit from. So I think it will move forward as to be China situation. Yes. Every day, you know, traders race to see what President Trump tweeted overnight, and I'd have to say it, certainly hallway ban, and then sort of backtracking, on that, from the US government was. Apparently a negotiating ploy. The problem is, I think China is sort of digging in. And if you read the Chinese press, which I do from time to time and I did today, you know, the they're sounding pretty nationalistic pretty adamant. It's, it's not uncommon now to have pieces written about how president she will win, which is sort of the kind of language that President Trump might engage in, but you really haven't seen that coming from the Chinese side. So I don't know. I think a lot of it will depend on whether President Trump and presidency, actually sit down together, or have some kind of confrontation or meeting, at the G twenty at the next summit, and I would hope that they do because otherwise, it does not seem evident right now that we even to get the talks started again, and we're not going to get a resolution or even any progress towards the resolution until the until the side start meat. Eating, but, you know it, it is really too bad. It seems to me a lot of progress had been made. Now, people are talking about how the tariffs are really hurting going to be hurting American companies. And what's Trump doing it seems like the sentiment which was backing him when, when there was good progress being made or at least I've done, it'll be being made has returned now and I and that's too bad. We need to as a country support this effort, because it's important to the country, and just as in a war you expect everyone to be all hands on deck. I think it would be appropriate for at least for now for all parties Democrats included to show their support for this confrontation. They did until it got a little difficult, then they kind of ran for the hills. But you know they need to stand up on this. I was struck. However, Liz yesterday in the Wall Street Journal with a report from the Europeans calling the Chinese. On. Fourth..

We are halfway through the first weekday commute without the viaduct. Lisa van sice on the KOMO Newsline from the Washington department of transportation and well this morning had. Okay. Lisa. Are you seeing any late surge? Mid day from people might have delayed their commute. Well, we really have to say thank you first of all because it went fairly well this morning. We did have some delays from the north and the south and right now it looks like our slower spots for that eastside drive in. But only a couple of minutes slower than average so little bit of reprieve right now. But keep in mind the congestion started much earlier than normal this morning. So you fast forward eight or nine hours, and you're looking at an afternoon and evening commute that will likely be ramping up earlier than what is typical so big. Thank you. And if you've adopted any of those habits, we've been suggesting like carpooling van pooling teleworking, maybe biking in at least for part of your commute. This is not the time to get complacent and get back to normal and hop in the car tomorrow morning, please take this is a warning that we need these habits to be long-term habit. Not just for a day or two at time and habits have to be a little different in the afternoon. Right. Because all of a sudden everybody's here in the city and their congesting surface street. I'm trying to get back out to whatever freeway they were going to have to take us to the viaduct. Exactly, no matter where you are traveling. You're going to have extra company likely earlier. That's what we saw back in two thousand sixteen the last time the viaduct with closed for an extended period of time that included a weekday commute. And we saw those after noon commute start earlier and lasts longer. So starting earlier. Yes. But also lasting later into the evening to what about the impact of the weather returns Wednesday. Of course, you talked a little bit about complacency for drivers bracing for things to get a little squirrelly toward the end of the week. Whether it is certainly a factor. We're watching that very closely. And then when you look at just a normal week day Wednesday and Thursday is typically when we have more folks out on the roads. Anyway, so the folks who can work for ten perhaps taking a Monday or a Friday off we see things a little bit easier, especially in the mornings. Well, you turn around and Wednesday and Thursday typically looks a little bit busier. So yes, this is definitely a warning that we wanna keep whatever you did this morning. Pretty similar over the next couple of days. So that we can really minimize the amount of congestion we have on the freeway system in general. All right, good. We'll be in touch with Lisa, of course throughout this week..

What are the potential health benefits of gene editing?
"Last year. A Chinese scientists shocked the world by disclosing hit created the world's first gene, edited babies, and John Ahuja talks to Robin level badge a developmental biologist geneticist about the controversy and about the potential for easy to use gene editing, tools such as crisper Cas nine to revolutionize diagnostics, drug discovery and the treatment of disease. Everybody has become very familiar with the story of the gene edited babies that came out from China last year. So these were apparently, the world's first genetic babies created it really triggered a scandal. Do we know what's happened to the scientist and author the twin baby girls that have been born? We know nothing new particularly drunk you. Hey, all vote voters JK is currently in Shenzhen where here's university is. I think he's in a an apartment owned by the university and the stories in the Chinese press that the gods. What we don't know who those gods are whether the university outs police, whoever they are. We don't know whether he's under house arrest or whether he's free to move around. He actually emailed me and said, he's all. Fine. So the impression is I think he's trying to give me that he's not under arrest. So the goals may be that to protect him because I know he was receiving threats during the become fronts that we had last hole. I can say he's fine. About the welfare of the twin girls. Lulu a Nana be concern. We know nothing about that. Jake himself was very keen to stress that that privacy should be maintained that they should be protected and density, not known on. We'll this likewise their parents. There is an investigation being launched in China by the ministries of sciences on administrative health. They presumably will want to find out whether what he's claimed to have done is actually the case. And so they would need to take DNA samples from the two babies, and the parents, but I hope they do it in a sensitive way. These are just two little babies. They should be cheated just as that and not subject to anything bad at all. They have novel mutations in this, gene L five, which is known in some cases to confer protection, it mutations in that gene can confer protection against HIV. And that was the rationale behind the work. But Jake I did was to try and make these children immune if you like to HIV because having trophy in China of even being a member of a family where one of the family members house HIV as in this case, it's cheap very badly. Families the stigmatized the children wouldn't be allowed to play with other children simply because of that for example. So that also sized about another reason why the density needs to be protected because of that situation too. But we hope is that they will teach it to normal little girls. And that's it. They have mutations in the gene that novel mutations because of the way he did the dean of editing quite poorly. We have no idea what those mutations will do but all of us have mutations. Every new generation that forty two eighteen you mutations in genome. So just treat them like normal children. Keep a watching eye on them. See what happens say watch this space on the genus babies story. But of course, may scientists involved in genome editing, as you prefer to call it on not involved in trying to change the course of human evily Shen by creating these genetic mutations or changes that will then be passed on down the family line, as I understand it the real excitement for genome editing is in the lab working with adult patients, perhaps with single gene disorders also excitement with drug discovery and so on so let's talk about that. Because I know that you were involved as developmental biologist in the aren- decide of things does your work focused on the creek. We have a number protecting many projects, but let me decide about one of them jeans have to pulse to them. They have the part that encodes the protein is going to do its job for it. But it also has a part but controls when and where that gene is active so normal genes, right? Even all cells over time, they all cell type specific, and they can be. Stage of development specific they can be on the active of particular time in the embryo or any adult we've been using the genome editing methods to try and understand bisect light. This regulatory region for some jeans and one in particular, cold sulks nine so soaks nine is gene that has many roles in developing embryo, but one we'd been working on for a long time as its role in sex determination. So whether you become male-female soaks nine is really critical to give rise to the development of testes particular cell type was critical for making tested so mutations in soak nine can lead to sex reversal to give ex wife female development instead of male development. But it's a really complex gene is active in many different cells. And it turns out that it has an enormous regulatory region, which is really complex and we wanted to try and dissect that say you have specific sequences you can refer to enhance or sequences where other proteins transcription factors in Toronto. With those. To tell the gene to be active or silent. And so we had fun using variety of methods number of candidate regimes run home of for soaks nine in the process of making testes we had about thirty two different candidates. We started with and we use number methods to try and reduce that number down. We came down to four but looked like they were very promising, and we use genome editing methods to inactivate each of those in enhances and turn to basically delete each of those regions of DNA intern unfound one of them, which is located very long distance away from the protein, coding Potter, gene itself. Some six hundred fifty thousand base pairs away which is big distance. When we did he should that particular in Holzer it inactivates, the, gene. So we got X Y females. So even though you have this really complex regulatory region. Spread over many millions of base pairs and stuffed full of different regulatory regions. Turns out, but just one was essential for expression in the developing gonads said that they can rise to test. What's the next female? They are crumbs Emily mail voicemails scream saying about they've developed as a female in this case in the embryos. They are indistinguishable from normal females stabbed genotype female genitally. This is women. They have the mice. Not women they develop his females in humans, of course. Yes. You would also have cases where you have extra female development. So they look female, but chromosome Yuda male. They will be infertile because the germs house of the eggs in the next female that do very well, they get lost early on. So they will be infertile. But otherwise, they look and generally behave and all female month thing, I should ask you to do been is to explain very briefly. What's crispy cast Moines editing, as can you tell us how the crisper cast nine genome editing system works, very briefly, please, okay. It relies on making breaks in the DNA usually a double strand break in the day, and to do that you have an enzyme called cows nine, but you have to have a way of getting not enzyme to the right place in the genome. And that's the guide are a component. So the RA you design it part of the irony is designed to be complementary. So to match up with the DNA sequence that you want to cut the other part of the RA guide are on a has a sequence of interacts with the cows nine enzyme protein. So when you have both together, and you crisper is not linking crisper yours. Crisper is a shorthand term for the guide our nights for the irony. The name crisper comes from origin. Bacteria is not really relevant to. Use to the guy Rene takes the Cas nine enzyme to the right part of the genome. The enzyme an cups, the DNA and processes that occur in also to repair broken deny then jump in and try and repair it now in the simplest form of technology. You just making a break in the DNA actually, Germany making a mutation in a gene, you have a process called known homogeneous end joining horrible term, but it basically just tries to stick the broken ends DNA bound together again, but often you have a little mistake made and that can be sufficient to an activator, gene. This is incredibly useful in the lab for studying gene functions say rapid and easy. Now, if you want to make them more precise alteration in the genome sequence DNA sequence on that can be anything from a single letter up too, many many thousands of letters of code then you have to use a different DNA repair mechanism cold Hamasi directed repair. This requires a third. Component to be introduced to the time time, which we confined to his DNA template. So this has to pulse. Each end. You have a bit of DNA, but complementaries of that's the same as the gene in which you want to talk it. And then in the middle. You have a sequence that you want to replace the one that's in our ready with and if you have those three components together. Now, the cows names aren't the guide our day on the DNA template the direction repair mechanism will not work, and it will substitute. What was in old template into the gene it is quite an incredible technology in it? There's a third method which I wanted to tell you about which is really exciting, which is cold base editing. Now, this allows you to change one base pair one letter if you like in the code, but it works without making a double strand, cutting the DNA, it changes chemically if you like one letter to another then it's partner also then has to change. Change. Otherwise, you have a little loop in the DNA, and that relies on a different type of DNA repair maximum to do a little bit. But given that about half of single, gene disorders or calls. In fact, by single base pair changes mutations in the DNA, this new methods looks really promising because it doesn't come with the baggage that some of the other methods have of creating unwanted mutations. So you get just what you want. So it could well be about safer method at least when you're dealing with single based mutation. Tell me how genome editing is being used in the lab, and perhaps with patients, it's really exploded. In basic research. The use of genome entertain particular the crisp cows nine methodology, it's very easy to use. That's one reason relatively inexpensive to use. But it's just so powerful and it's a rapid. So we've had ways of altering genes in cells in coach. Uh-huh. Or in model animals that we use for research like mice methods to alter genes in many years for decades, but they will always very inefficient very slow to make a mouse carrying specific mutation in a particular, gene, it really used to take well over a year to do that we cannot do it in the motto of a couple of months. So it rapidly speeds up the way that we can do research to study the role of specific genes or pulse of genes during development in my case or for physiology over brain function, or in cancer, it's really speeded up things enormously and made it cheaper in terms of things like the possibility of using genome editing to treat patients who already have a genetic disease or council something like this again, that's really looking incredibly exciting. We've had some somebody, gene therapy. Also for decades, just explain what semitic therapies somatic cells are. Basically any sewn in the body apart from the jumps health germ cells being themselves who are going to give rise to sperm or eggs that would allow any genetic changed repulsed on to subsequent generations. So a typical somebody will be a skin owl muscle tell or bone cell brain zone. So there are whole ranger Nettie disease is that can compromise. The ability of particular cells to function or the politics function things that the blood'll sickle cell disease will be catalyse Mia, you have disease like cystic fibrosis or muscular dystrophy affect lungs muscles opticians, in many cases, these G two single mutations Chinga, gene. It's affected by small mutation affecting that, gene. So the genome editing methods can be used to correct, gene defects, or in some cases, find ways around of getting another gene to become active to replace the gene that's not working. There are now probably around twenty or so clinical trials that had been launched. Using the female amenity methods to try and treat individuals who have think disease of this soaks. I'm single, gene defects.

Let's talk about what's in the papers. Now you've chosen to talk about this banning of videogames. What said, what about all over the news in Chinese press today? Beijing is going to cut the number of new online video games being made and published, and also the government is going to a limited amount of time. Young people can play the games, no specific intricacies about how how the government is going to enforce this, but is going to be a measure to fight the spreading myopia in the country where a reason report shows and the five hundred million people in China's of a visual impairment and also the rate is rising. So this notice came yesterday issued by the education ministry and only after few days ago, Chinese president Xi Jinping coal for the greater national attention on the optical health almost impossible to police. How can you absolutely can contain that no idea, but it's read is surprise. Everyone and know nobody knows how how they're going to enforce that either. Did they penalize or the any penalty to on the parents or the schools and idea? Well, what's the? What's the specific and no timeframe is given, but is you know, definitely has set news what game is and but no, but the stock market is ready reacting to it because today the share price of tens and the leading tech giant in China rate drop almost five percent in Hong Kong market trading time today, and wiping out is a twenty billion dollars in market value. And other smaller game develop has also plunge in the Shenzhen exchange board. Let's move on now and Japan's defense budget because of course, Japan feeling very much under the cauti- with North Korea and China and now pouring money into that budget. Yeah.
