We saw almost no influenza right personally. Did not see a single flu case has never happened in my career. Never but we were wearing masks.

And we're already seeing the value of people getting immunized in the downturn in the pandemic.

Well our thanks to dr greg poland.

New York Isn't Dead
"It was the headline struck at the heart of cities. During the pandemic new york is dead. Forever author investor james outdoors op-ed declared new york in a death spiral because quote businesses are remote and they aren't return to the office ended up leading jerry seinfeld to pen. His celebrated appeal declaring that new york. Sure as hell will be back so a year later. Who was right robert. Frank joins us with more robert. Good morning andrew jerry. Seinfeld's words still inspiring new yorkers year later with that hashtag. nyc is not dead and that of course was a response to all tutors. Op ed saying that. Remote work empty office. Buildings boarded up restaurants and hotels. Rising crime and high taxes would hollow out the city for years or decades. Now who was right. Well a year later on the residential real estate size that side that has rebounded sales more than doubling over the past year prices almost back to pre pandemic levels and do rentals having their best quarter in recent history. You look at restaurant traffic. That was down. Eighty nine percent a year ago from pre penned democ. Now it's about half of those prepaid pandemic levels. Mta subway ridership. It is improving but it is still about half what it was pre pandemic hotel occupancy now at around sixty seven percent that compares to about forty percent a year ago so improvement there as well. But new york's recovery future depends a lot on office workers and that is the big unknown. There was forty seven million square feet of empty office space in midtown as the first quarter and then if you look at rental rates they are down nine percent from a year ago a year ago only twelve percent of new york city workers were back in the office. Now it is twenty three percent and guys with the delta variant. We thought people would come back in right after labor day. Now we're looking at mid october. Maybe so until we get those office workers back until we know how many do come back. New york's recovery is still open to question

Failures Of State Review: The Inside Story Of Britain’s Battle With Coronavirus
"George and jonathan. Many thanks for for coming onto the show. This book came out of an article that you wrote. When did you first realize that. Actually this was being horrifically mishandled from the top. We were asked in a roundabout kind of the end of march. Actually less jia to have a look at why things to be so badly in the uk compared to other places why we seem to be the case. The infections arising Had ridden said quickly. We seem to be on so many deaths. And if you remember that time you know kind of everyone kind of looked across which you've been the first to be hit by the pandemic and they sort of said well whenever going to be a spot as easily and quickly and we were and we started off with the kind of question which was what was the prime minister during and what was his government doing to tackle the patent democ in those early days. And so we. We worked on this Our initial article review weeks and at the end of april. We rented story which was about the government's that gate lost days in In tackling the virus. And i think as we were going through the research It became clear clear and clearer time. The threats has not been taken seriously even the winnings with that and that we were in a very very pull state of preparedness anyway than people who claim that we were one of the best countries equipped to tackle a virus in in the world. We will fall from it because will years. We'll stay on t. And the kind of concentration on emergency planning for a noble brexit deal. It meant that we were actually wiki statement. It came so what what was vital was when when the news came out china it was awful virus which was spreading quickly and jamming hospitals in in china. Already that we needed to hit the ground running. And i think what we found in our initial research was government. Just didn't do
The Doomsday Clocks Historic Wake-Up Call With Rachel Bronson
"Forty five. The united states detonated two atomic bombs over hiroshima and nagasaki. It is harnessing of the basic power. The universe shortly after a group of manhattan project scientists at the university of chicago who helped build the atomic bomb but protested using against people started the bulletin of the atomic scientists. Huge choice is peace or total destruction. the atomic is yeah. They wanted to urge fellow scientists to help shape national and international policy to mitigate the risk of the nuclear technology that they themselves had helped create and they wanted to help the public understand the dangers of nuclear weapons. To the future of humanity world would not be the same. i remember anthony blind from hindu scripture. The by gerrad gita. Now i am become death. Despoil worlds are another in designing the cover of its magazine. The bulletin created something striking o'clock running out of time. It started as artistic piece created by chicago based marta lanes door. She was very to manhattan project. Scientists issues gender stood the scientists concerns about this new technology and the need for public engagement and they had asked her to create some sort of design that would engage the public on. How serious the threat of this new technology. And she said it seven minutes to midnight every year since then. The bulletin set the hands of its metaphorical clock in relation to how close to doomsday. We might be last year. The group moved it to a mere one hundred seconds to midnight. And at the time we got a lot of chiding like it's twenty twenty how come it so close. Do you really believe it's this close and then sure enough. We saw the massive wildfires right outta the gate in in australia. That got repeated in california this year but obviously covid and the inability of the global community to deal effectively with covid is was to us a clear indication of our inability to deal with existential threats. Known some ways you can make an argument that it should have been even closer to midnight this year because you had your existing threats then you had that real life pandemic which is continuing to affect us. How can we didn't go further to midnight. Yeah so in some ways You know we don't want to double count right and so a lot of the warning signs. Were what moved to one hundred seconds to midnight but it is a very dangerous in environment. And we'd we do want to acknowledge that hundred seconds to midnight is dangerous. We do see some bright spots and some opportunities so those bright spots helped us from moving forward but we weren't prepared to move it back. It may be tempting to look at the clock this year and take some hope from the fact that it didn't move closer to but remember it's still the closest to midnight that we have ever been and this year the bolton highlighted new threat one that they said is a threat multiplier to all the other problems that we face with the world health organization called a massive info democ he really grappling with what our trusted new sources. And how do you find them. And how do we share the so. We're all overwhelmed with data and information. But it's very optimistic. When it comes to share it information or what you and i know and so that becomes very disorienting and it becomes Quite dangerous right. It sets up the ability for authoritarian leaders to create their own information and different sites secrete. Their own information will get into the surprising. Ways that this info democ touches every threat factor to the doomsday clock but will start with the issue that was really the canary in the coal. Mine of this info dynamic climate change. The scientists have been warning us for decades and yet they're the ones who have experienced a lot of these issues in terms of misinformation and disinformation. I that denying climate science the marginalization of them the using of science which is kind of about uncertainty and evolution to dismiss what scientists have to say. All of. this was the global warming. And that it's a lot of it's a hoax hoax. Moneymaking industry okay. Climate change is not science. it's religion it pulls the rug out from under scientists and expert exactly the time when such expertise is actually needed and within the context of the us there could be real differences among republicans. Democrats or what you think about market versus regulation. Those are really really important questions that we should be debating fiercely right now that we can when it's being defined as climate change yes or no we can't even have the kind of real political conversations that we should be having
Tyler Perry’s absentee ballot never showed up, so he flew to Atlanta to vote
"Tyler perry wanted to vote in yesterday's runoff so bad that he hopped on a jet and flew all the way to georgia in person to cast his ballot because his absentee ballot never showed up after no door to senate candidate received fifty percent of the vo in november. The racist runoffs. If you aren't aware tyler said he waited and waited for more than a month for his. Absentee ballot never came so he was in jackson hole. Wyoming hopped on. His private jet flew to georgia. He was there yesterday. The election The latest on the election. Reverend raphael warnock the senior pastor of that big ebeneezer baptist. Church in atlanta will officially be the first black senator from georgia. Cnn projected that early this morning. He is the first georgia democrat to the senate in twenty years. Now control of the senate comes down to republican david perdue who still trailing in his fight to keep his seat against democrat. Jon ossoff and this is big because democ democrats excuse me will control the senate if ossoff wins if purdue wins republicans will maintain control and able to block. President elect biden's cabinet appointments judicial picks and legislative agenda. So we're still waiting on those
Byzantine Fault Tolerant Consensus
"Everyone this is ted. I'm from cornell university. I'm finishing up my phd now my fifth year. I also worked part time at avalanches which is in our startup. i co-founded with adviser. Tell me a little bit about your phd work. What are your specific areas of interest. Yes so i think for the a democ- part you know as a phd. I mostly were distributed systems and that sounds like a very broad topic so more specifically within the systems i'm mostly focused on consensus and within the consensus topic. They are also different kinds of consensus protocol. I mostly focused on so called. Byzantine fault tolerant consensus protocols or t protocols. We are nowadays very hot topics. Pickus people are interested in blockchain technology and walk. Chang's need such kind of consensus in order to work. We'll definitely spend some time. Talking about blockchain byzantine fault. Tolerance is not as newest blockchain. So it's a i guess. An older theory. Could you help some of the listeners with the basics. What is bef t absolutely so. Yeah indeed. I think there has been like misconception. Many people think of b. f. Some kind of new stuff especially in that community even when we're talking about blockchain's but to me when i started my phd at cornell this of t kind of consensus as the coolest consensus at heard of at a time. And before actually dive into that world so what is not so byzantine fault. Tolerance has a weird name. So what is byzantine is. Sounds like the name of the old empire in l. a probably medieval or or some time period and the reason that this kind of protocol got his name as thanks to leslie lamport so may have heard of this research. His very well known ing Systems community clothing his works on taxes all sorts of consensus stuff. The also proposed the name for this new career of consoles protocols to be. Fd consists and beat byzantine just is part of the story if you read his paper about the whole consensus. So let's forget about the name of paying so what this protocol is usually about as maybe you are familiar with the phnom visiting kind of consensus or you know people usually call them crash fault tolerant protocols such as taxes or rafts so those protocols they work great and they're widely adopted by the current industry. Google uses passes as a core for cloud service and the reason that we need to another category of consensus protocol is because this kind of protocol a does not assume malicious behavior by the participating machines nose so that means than those can only crash build knows can only like human beings they can always say. Oh i die and then you just shut down or crashed without creating any noise into the channel into the network so then people begin to think about how we should handle the case where there some node. That could go crazy. Say i'm an node than when i don. I don't die peaceful eight. But i crave bunch of noises. The noise could be interfering the entire natural and even worse. I could be you know. Some zombie not controlled by the x. Turno attackers so i could exhibit arbitrary behaviour visit lab. I'm like a you know the insider send on by some other parties. So i'm like spying this system. So how do you handle this kind of situation in a protocol. While at the same time you still want to achieve the same goal as the noun byzantine one usually call them or crush full tolerant protocols we want to achieve the same goal but was different assumption
UN Mideast Envoy Nickolay Mladenov; Celebrating Hanukkah
"In two thousand fifteen. Former bulgarian minister of defense and farm minister. Nikolai mladenov was appointed by then. Un secretary general bunk moon to serve as the special coordinator for the middle east peace process since then. Nikolai has served with distinction. Doggedly working to stave off conflict escalations to speak up against comas. terror and to speak up for palestinian needs. Nikolai will soon be leaving his post and he has graciously agreed to join us now on people of the pod to share his thoughts before he does nikolai. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having now. You and i recorded a podcast interview. Two and a half years ago at the ajc global forum two thousand eighteen in jerusalem. Your very first answer began. And i quote right now. There is practically no peace process because there are no talks were very far from the conditions. Which would make such talks meaningful and to add an additional complication to that the palestinians. The americans don't talk to each other unless i'm mistaken. You could answer this first question in a similar way today. What are the prospects right now for israeli palestinian peace. Well if i had to ended my answer two years later i will delete the word practically everything else stats because there is no peace process. I don't think either. The palestinian or the israeli side are in a position to initiate meaningful discussions on issues. That would actually lead to sustainable solution to the conflict. Of course the palestinian hopeful that was the new american administration. Coming in this will change. I would argue that. What is important are the conditions on the ground. Firstly leadership on both sides for their own reasons different reasons for their own reasons is not in a position to initiate such discussions. Secondly i think the region has shifted in a different direction with different threats. The region has identified as more of a priority. And thirdly i think demands a very serious effort by the international community to create the conditions that are necessary to sustain such meaningful negotiations. Would i were argue. Is that right now. Both sites needs to do unilaterally some positive confidence building measures so that some of the trust that is nice. Sue for negotiations to be meaningful can be rebuilt. And there's a lot of stuff that can be done by both. Israel is under postseasons to that when last we spoke. You also said that. The situation in gaza to which i know you've paid a tremendous amount of attention and invested a tremendous amount of time. You said that that situation was extremely desperate. Has life improved at all for the people living in gaza. I don't think i can say that. It has improved. I think it's actually on a number of fronts become much worse with covert democ now. In fact only a couple of weeks ago we came up with some new research which we published and tens of thousands of gaza have lost their jobs because of the economic socio economic crisis caused by the virus endemic. We've seen a rapid increase in the number of people who need food assistance and a healthcare system in gaza which is on the verge of collapse. It is only managing to do with the cases that now the coronavirus cases that it has because of the extensive assistance the un in coordination with israel and with the palestinians provides to hospitals. Be that ventilators face masks desk kids. Whatever is necessary but no live. there hasn't improved and the only way that you can see. Life in gaza. Improving is if you have a combination of the following factors. One is the legitimate palestinian authority. Government comes back in takes control from hamas islamic jihad not various militants. Dinner there so that they put weapons into their control and reduce the risk security risk on the grounds secondly that israel reopened some of the closings on gaza in terms of limitations. What can go in. Because of the fear that julius materials that go into gaza get used for rockets or other terror related activities. Pick and that is. How lights can normalize but sadly we're more in a state right now off preventing wards and actually trying to build a sustainable peace as far as gaza is concerned have been many attempts to restart internal palestinian negotiations. All of them sadly failed the title of the job that you are preparing to leave is special coordinator for the middle east peace process. I know that often middle east peace process refers just to this kind of one long running conflict in one corner of the middle east. So does your remit nikolai. Does it touch on any of this kind of news. Between israel and arab states. my job title was invented. I don't think there was any there. Were any other conflicts in the middle east and this was the goal to conflicts for everyone. Since then they've been too many. And i wish there would be a general middle east peace process if you wish that involves all the countries in the region from libya to yemen to iraq and lebanon syria. Whatever lives who have my remits currently is on the israeli palestinian fronts. Only however i think that if you look more strategically how to resolve this really frozen conflict if you wish between israelis and the palestinians you tune in to bring the arabs it and this is something that we've been arguing for way back before even president obama's time the quartet it's national quartet needs to open up and engage with the arabs more openly and more constructively and perhaps in the future that will be more possible because of the abraham accords. Andy situation which you have now. I've been a strong advocate of bringing in the arab countries because i think in the current strategic and geopolitical environment neighboring benefits to all sides and to the region as a whole their key to stability and to promoting tolerance in the middle east they are critical to creating economic opportunities of engagement between israel and the gulf states trade tourism culturally -education exchanges. Their critical if you wish to supporting the palestinian authority in terms of funding and donations the un's activities on the coronavirus on any as crisis that we have so their strategic partners and swap. My term care. I've spent a substantial part of my time. Travelling to the gulf to egypt to jordan to other arab countries constantly briefing them consulting with them and bringing them. It's just a few months ago. When the annexation was still an issue of public debates in israel. I made it very clear publicly. That israel has a choice either to go down. The road of annexation which would have been against international law would create all kinds of security and other problems on the ground and would have alienated the arab countries or go down the road of normalization which actually creates opportunities for the future. And really glad that that's where we are today.
There's no vaccine for lies about the COVID-19 vaccine
"There is still not yet a vaccine for lies about the co vaccine from american public media. This is marketplace tech. I'm ali would the coronavirus pandemic has gone hand in hand with an info democ of misinformation about everything from homemade cures to weather masks. Work spoiler alert. They do now. If possible. the misinformation stakes have gotten even higher as the covid nineteen vaccine begins to roll out. Doses are set to be administered in the uk as soon as today and disinformation researchers. Say there's a whole new wave of renewed activity spreading lies about vaccine safety and the origin of the virus. Joan donovan is the research director of the shorenstein center on media politics and public policy at harvard so over the past couple of weeks. I've had several doctors as well as a hospital librarians. Asking us for help because people are showing up having junk science at their back. Asking about vaccine. Safety and doctors are wondering. Why is it these questions. Why now at this scale. We also need to do quite a bit clean up online especially around very key. Phrases related to vet the vaccine ingredients vaccine harms. Because we have you know over a decade now of vaccine misinformation. That is just littered about the internet much of which has been waiting for this moment to burst into the public consciousness. Remember what do you think about some of the tools that the platforms have employed in the primary one seems to just be this labeling and linking to some vetted resource you've been a little bit critical of that in some instances as i click through those labels. They're not immediately relevance sometimes or they're not targeted enough in terms of pointing people towards accurate information that they've almost started to become at least in the right wing media ecosystem they start to become a bit of a joke or a badge of honor to some folks. I think something that triggers and all of us when we see a label as we assume that things that are not labeled may be more true than they are in some ways feels like a little bit of a groundhog's day conversation you know the platforms are never quite doing enough in there too. Big and there is no regulation. And yet i think we would still agree though you and i that we also don't necessarily want these platforms fully in charge of deciding what we see given their scale right. What i'm interested in really understanding is how are they going to describe and define what counts as misinformation on their platform and then instead of retroactively. Really trying to band aid the situation. What is their design solution. That doesn't allow monied interests and with political reach to turn those systems against society. So you're saying there's a big delta between what they're doing now and even then becoming publishers in the sense where they're liable for what goes up. Yeah and i think that you know one of the you know. It's it's again groundhog day. But a feeling like a fool's errand to really try to care deeply about any politician you know pulling the rug out by taking section to thirty away for instance when it comes to trying to get platforms to stabilize how they serve information. That's what the struggle is here When trump is saying that we got to get rid of two thirty it's because the information ecosystem is so unstable that he can't wheeled it to his advantage. But we have to be cognizant of the fact of who's calling for this removal and under what conditions but we're going to have a struggle over large centralized communication systems are world's continuously rioted. No matter what is done now. The problem is always going to be you know when it comes to centralizing our communications. Are these platform companies being responsible to the broadest public. Good and at this stage we can. We can demonstrate. No i wonder. I wanna ask you from your perspective as a professor in a weird way it seems like social media platforms at this size or something. We also have to build immunity to like. They're also relatively new and our brains and figure society has not figured out how to handle this new type of virus should curriculum. Be a part of that like should we be designing curriculum for schools for children to teach them how to recognize truth. I think our educators. Do a fairly good job of that. What's hard is is when you go on line and you see a company like google whose tasked themselves with organizing the world's information but then they don't show you how they organize it and so it becomes a really complicated question for younger folks to say well. I have access to more information than any human being in the history of the world. And yet i have trouble finding true things or accurate things. Let's let's maybe scale it down one philosophical notch and so. I do think though that we do need curriculum for understanding it just as we would teach people the practice of citations and why that matters we do need to help. People understand what it is that there are seeing when they searched for You know information on any of these platforms and then you know. It's it's a hard problem though. I mean back in my day. Not that old but wicked pedia was considered this big enemy of the university. Right how could they possibly have so much information on wikipedia and it all be true right and so teachers would say you can't cite wikipedia but it's really where we all began our exploration even if we didn't necessarily show it and i think at this point now we do also have to wonder about the flow of timely local relevant and accurate information and so one of the things that i think. We also have to redesign as we think about and scale of these platform is is to what degree then. We also try to open knowledge and try to make sure that the world's resources information resources scientific publications are also available for people to be able to explore and understand and by and large journalists are the ones who provide that window into science popular science anyhow and and it's hard because we've seen also as we see platforms taking control we see journalists losing resources and Audience
Designer Willi Smith: Life in New York in the 80s
"Today with my guest will be looking back on what life and the fashion scene was like in new york city in the nineteen eighty s and discussing legendary black american designer woody smits he's brand winnie way is currently in exhibition dedicated to his work. And he's all kinds will stay up through february two thousand and twenty one. It's sponsored by good chee. And it's the cooper hewitt smithsonian design. Museum in new york exhibition is the first of its kind to celebrate his work would he. Smith was regarded at the time of his death in nineteen eighty seven during the eighth democ as one of the most successful black designers of his time. According to vogue dot com curious spent two decades winnie where the company was launched in nineteen. Seventy six at a closed. Its doors in. Nineteen ninety in a time spent shorter than a decade willie smith while he was still alive in designing for the brand managed to create designs which conquered the american market at the height of his success is closed Edible in five hundred stores and was stopped by all the major department stores like macy's bloomingdale's was often the guest of daytime talk shows. But first and foremost would smith wasn't old american designer. He's closed appealed to every man and woman and have been described as being made for day but truly unique.

Trials show Oxford's COVID vaccine works well in older adults
"The coronavirus vaccine that's being developed by the university of oxford and astra zeneca was found to be safe and that triggers an immune response among all adults that's according to preliminary findings of peer reviewed phase two trial phase. Three trials are already underway. Matt news comes just a day. After the united states reached a total of two hundred and fifty thousand covid. Nineteen deaths joining us right now. Is marta leany. He's former aetna chairman and ceo an markets. Great to see you. It's been a while since we've talked to you but obviously the events that we've seen now you have an understanding of how things play out of developing those vaccines has been the really hard work but the next step isn't going to be all that easy either. We need to figure out how to safely. And effectively distribute the vaccine to millions of americans. And i know. Cvs is going to be playing a role with that. Aetna is going to play a role with that. Where where do you think we stand. What are the challenges that we face. And how do you think this will play out to see becky. Joe raw andrew. I think the real issue here is vaccines great. More the more than area. I think we need more innovation And it's been amazing but the pharmaceutical companies able to do but it's one part of an arsenal they're really goes back to a broader and democ mc framework. Where we i have to. I'd early identifies so get back into the wall. World health organization get get active there again. Secondly have the diagnostic antibody testing strategy the population. So whose immune we also know who we need to protect so that we can keep working while we protect americans that are at risk and then is the vaccines come along. You need to have the ability to track and trace diagnostics. Antibodies and the vaccine is because we don't know yet in any of these vaccines along the media's and when that immunity wears off you need to understand when it happens. What kind of booster shot. The people need a man. How do we keep that going over arm. So the amount the enormity of the data and the framework around doing that is going to be really important to build. We don't have that yet in large part because we don't have a national plan. There's a lot of things that we can kind of jump into their. I want to start with one thing. You said that we need to figure out who is going to be most affected by this. I mean i think that's part of the question. We know the demographic split that older people happen to be in worse shape with this that people with co morbidity have a worse time with this but are we any closer to being able to figure out why some people are so greatly impacted even if they don't have co morbidity even if they're younger while others seem to do just fine with it. I think we're learning more everyday day. Becky i'm i we'll continue to learn. It's gonna take a while you get a real deep understanding of this disease and of the vaccine impact. But i think it's important that is as long as we have a national framework around this. You begin to approach all the public health issues but even more importantly the capacity models we need to understand. Mpp e hospital beds skill sets and in ventilators and other things that along have a buffer economy. So we're not doing just in time. Responses depend as emerged. This is not spend Will have more mark. Were pretty long in the tooth in this pandemic at least feels like if you're sitting at home. Why do you think we don't have a better plan at this point at least for the testing and at least for contact tracing. We don't have a framework to do nationally across the board. We could be learning so much every part of the country if we had a way of aggregating the information or understanding. And who's sick why they're sick. What kind of. Antibodies are we seeing out there can be used for their units and as the vaccines developed our these vaccines working which ones are best for which population that requires a national database. A national way of looking at this information and we've decided to allocate up to the states. I think that's wrong headed.
Polls show Biden winning: Can you believe them?
"The polls predict that by Wednesday next week. Joe. Biden will be the next president of. The United States, how sound forecast this is however is still very much anyone's guess and we'll anything that Joe Biden or Donald Trump do or say this weekend make any difference to the way people will vote well to look ahead to the last few days of campaigning I'm joined by Jacob, parakeet us, affairs analyst, and associated the london-based think-tank llc. Ideas Welcome Jacob. Good Morning. So the last twenty four hours is very much a focus on Florida hasn't it was both candidates pushing hard in different ways. Yes. As usual, you have trump doing his big non socially distanced sort of pretend democ style rallies and Biden having adapted more to the pandemic world doing socially distance or drive in rallies being seen wearing a mask and that sort of thing. Florida is key for a number of reasons. One is that it's virtually impossible to imagine a trump win that doesn't involve Florida. If Biden wins Florida trump would have to not only win every single other state that he won in two thousand sixteen but pick off a number of states that Biden a Hillary Clinton won some quite comfortably. So if trump finish is Trump finished second in Florida then it's pretty much over for him and the other key thing about Florida is. Contrary to the what happened in two thousand with the endlessly delayed and contentious recount. Florida now counted spoke very very quickly. So we expect to know the winner in Florida probably by early Wednesday morning. So that would be an early indicator. Now, if Biden Loses Florida particularly, if it's a close loss that doesn't mean it's over and trump has one biden has numerous other paths to the presidency that don't involve Florida but especially given the. Value that trump has put on vote suppression and on trying to pressure the courts to shut down the legitimate counting of votes early, an early loss for him in Florida could take the steam out of that effort, which is why part of the reason why I think you're seeing his campaign put so much effort there. So what kind of narratives will be getting from both candidates with very very different campaigns Florida's Today. Well the trump campaign is trying to tie Joe Biden to. Latin America Socialism. Florida of course, has a very large Latino population many of whom come from Venezuela or Cuba. So trying to tie Joe Biden to be socialist leadership in Latin American countries. This been a recurring theme in the trump campaign I don't think it's necessarily a particularly accurate charge that might have worked as a campaign line slightly better against Bernie Sanders But that doesn't mean that it won't be effective in some quarters of the the mole lightining parts of the particularly the Cuban American population The counterweight to that and I think the reason why Biden has generally lead impulse in Florida albeit by a small margin is trump's management of covid nineteen has deeply alienated seniors and Florida is America's retirement heartland. So there are huge numbers of people over the age of sixty five who are also the most vulnerable to Covid nineteen and who've made up the bulk of the deaths and serious From the disease. So Biden has been losing ground with Latino voters, but he's also been making up that ground with seniors. And, show, you might see a slightly strange democratic coalition generally Republicans do well with older voters but because Biden missing is relatively unthreatening and because he's seen as more competent than handling. This disease, which predominantly affects older Americans. He might well more than make up his losses amongst the Latino voters we're looking at Biden being up in three of the key swing states which trump took last time, which is Wisconsin Michigan and Pennsylvania. What does that say about what the both candidates need to do this weekend? Well I think I mean the polling in those states particularly in Michigan Wisconsin? Has Really suggested that they're not as nearly as competitive as they were last time. The Biden has if not put them out of reach. Put them very close out of reach. Pennsylvania is a again like Florida really keyed polling. There has been a little bit closer. Trump has managed to keep Biden's average margin down to about five points verses seven, eight, nine as with the Upper Midwest. So, you could imagine a combination of voter suppression pulling error and maybe using the courts to fro out legitimate mailed in ballots on some weak pretext a big enough to bring trump over the over the top in Pennsylvania. Again. Though you know that could Pennsylvania's twenty electoral votes. It's bigger than Wisconsin or Michigan by a significant margin By also beating in Arizona in. The second Congressional district of Nebraska in the second. Congressional district main both of which award individual electoral votes he could in theory scout and electoral vote margin just on the basis of Michigan Wisconsin Arizona and the Individual Congressional district. So it's it's if anything even more key for both than. Than its Florida but Biden losing, it doesn't completely shut off Biden's path. We have widespread coverage of the number of people voting ahead of the ballot on the third of November some of predicting that with what I think eighty million votes have already cost and some predictions saying that it could be one hundred and fifty million people voting ahead of the of of Tuesday. What is that going to say about the way that votes are counted and will count come the closure of the polls There's not a single answer to that question because this is a state by state issue. Some states have relatively generous rules allowing the receipt of ballots up to suffer several days after the election as long zero postmarked before election. Day. The the issue of course is that under the supervision of trump's handpicked postmaster general mail delivery has slowed down considerably. But the impact of all this there's been a kind of you could call it a streisand effect I think of. All the attempts that trump has made to meddle with ill voting to meddle with attempts at expanding the franchise, and that has been to prioritize voting for in person early getting ballots in early the rates of receipt for. Nailed ballots amongst Democrats are very, very high. Now, there are specific places that the Democrats are worried about like Miami Dade County but that doesn't mean that they're necessarily going to lose their the fact that so many regular Democratic voters are getting their vote in early means that for these last. Few. Minutes the Party and its affiliated ideological pressure groups can focus on voters who are more regular. Maybe haven't turned in their votes yet and really focus on getting those people out to vote. So we won't know until the counting is done how that's shaped up some states give registration of voters breakdown. So we know for instance, how many Democrats have requested ballots how many Republicans are requested valid in Florida, but there's also a big population of independent some we have various polling that suggests how they might vote, but we don't know for sure and just the rates of early voting. They give us a hint as to what the ultimate vote count will be. But I think we have to be careful not over over overemphasize what we can know about who those votes four particularly there'll be a small but not insignificant crossover of people who have historically been Republicans voting for Joe Biden people who have historically been Democrat. But you'd have voted for Republicans for years but never bothered changed their party registration and that sort of thing. Finally Jacob. There's a question of peacefulness to do with this I mean. Donald, trump has already said that unless. There is a huge swing towards Joe, Biden then he will cry raked and then a whole new process begins.
Update On The Leadership Conference In Sweden
"The world is ripe and ready for restarting and looking ahead. So where better to get a clear and uninterrupted view than from the eastern Swiss Alps and that is the setting for the chiefs. Monaco's. Conference which welcomes visionaries, founders and industry leaders for look ahead how business and indeed the whole world could move forward from here well. Is, tyler lay and he students all through the day's event at Subaru in summer. It's and I'm delighted to say he's taken a moment out of the conference to join us now to tell us what is happening where he is tyler apart from the obvious attraction from the chairlift right to an Alpine dinner, it must feel good to bring people together again. Good afternoon. Good afternoon Emma absolutely, and I think that has been one of the probably. Comment people just feel so good to be out in the world again and just meeting people in a setting which feels pretty normal I. I don't think there's much going on here that would make you think otherwise that we are still in in the midst of course cases rising in Europe, we have Orrin teams being imposed and and and borders also going up as well. So I I think that is. One of the people are just happy to be together and be listening to great ideas and and and I think also to be challenged. A little bit as well. We'll Tennessee little bit more about these challenges because people are coming together facing momentous challenges. What is it the world trying to focus on here? Well number, we just had a failed bomb nora failed bomb is the CEO of vitro. Of course, one of the world's most respected design brands I imagine in many many listeners right now are right likely sitting on a beatrice AU faux or chair or stool or in front of a desk. Here's a business, which is which is completely focused on the topic of what is going to happen to our city centers you know will work from home account for fifty percent of the workforce is going to be twenty percent. So we tackle that issue. It. With her and it was interesting. You know she was talking about are we may be moving into a world of spoke Yes. They'll be a main office in a city that will there almost almost More like owned and operated co working spaces where people come together. So that was one topic but then we just had a our he's the head of the the intermeshed. With the Red Cross and the and he was looking at at the current crises. The fact that we have a pandemic Emma but of course, get thirty messy parts of the world is he talks about this hasn't gone away and he's just a literally almost fresh off the plane from a mission in Mali, And Burkina into Hell region. What I find interesting is is the names of the people you've gathered that. We oversee have world of of of of vitro, but then. We have the head of security policy in the Swiss Federal Department of Defence Civil Protection and sport you mentioned now we have the head of the red. Cross. These are figures from the world of dealing with emergencies. Does that reflect the kind of times that we're in? Will it does because you're going to have an informed view about about risk and where the world is going. Then I think you do need people who are at the pointy end that that point he and might be how is a small but very economically successful. Country like Switzerland, how is it going to navigate geopolitical issues that wide Switzerland potentially need forty new fighter aircraft at a time when people talk of drones and and country, which is known as being neutral, and at the same time, you also want to hear from someone who's the head of risk for one of the biggest banks who can of course, apply some of these elements as well to a of. Course, the end consumer, the person who wants to go in byproducts from that that bank and how does that impact your day to day? How are we able to look ahead at the moment I mean is what we're talking about today stuff that we need to deal with at that pointy end in the next six months to one year or is there any sense yet that people can sink a little further ahead? Well I think actually North Alabama interesting because someone else oppose a similar question about short-term. What are you doing right now with marketing just how do you look at advertising? How do you promote a brand right now how do you stay top of mind and then what you do long term and her response with where we're a family company from Basel we have time and and so of course, we continue to develop an invest in great furniture and we and we take we take a long-term view. And yes you also have to be mindful of of the realities of up today as well. I mean is she's a little later on the conference to be talking about. The chiefs as a future when you talk about sustainability. And yesterday, the president of the European commissioners of a funder line was saying that we will rebuild our way out as a covert pundit DEMOC following an entirely green agenda. But when you have things like you know you're orderbook isn't as full as it should be your staff coming back from furlough and you're thinking, how am I going to make it through the next six months and people are saying actually you need to be green a you need to think about this you need to think about that. The priorities become quite quite challenging they. Absolutely. And I think that you know that that is one of the topics I mean, how much does you could talk about sustainability all you want but you know does. Your does your program, which of course has the best intentions is that we need to take a back seat for because you know that was going to involve retooling your factory. You knew that it was going to actually mean of course, upping the prices or accepting a more expensive supply chain, and maybe that has to get not kicking the grass necessarily, but it maybe has to drift out maybe three years I according to your plan and i. think that is also something we've heard you today is well, if if you're going to do these things aren't easy a lot of his. Let's walk at first before we talk and try to either talk green credentials are sustainability agenda and I think actually on that probably the one thing that I think is really coming out of the conference so far I'm as is. Being a by the let's let's let's invest in things that last And it really interesting to hear. You have MS failed I'm talking about you know if you go and buy an eames chair and I believe you're probably sitting in an email chair right now if I know it studio you're in. Those comes with a thirty year guarantee. Extraordinary and you know that has to be now and again you know is the entire chair perfectly sustainable no but it's not going to be in in five years either it's absolutely not in it's been comfortable for very long time finally looking into this afternoon. You're taking the floor talking to us about a few things that have caught your eye that you like and that if it's inspired you I mean we we have to be lifted out of this somehow what are you talking about them? Well. After lunch I I do a spin around the world and of course, the look at some things that yeah. Basic things that I that I experienced in everyday life, which which I think are are interesting that we we might need we might need more of so and I think probably one thing I was going to slide them. And you'll appreciate this. There's a lot of Austria and they're the world maybe needs a little bit. You know even though of course I'm standing in Switzerland at the moment. But if I if I look across the the mountains look across the border I know that Austria lies beyond and there's definitely whether it's brands whether it's the urban interventions that the world needs a little bit more Austria it full of wisdom of real and I'm just Sitting next to our affairs at a Christian mccue is half Australian I've never seen warranties thumbs up in all my days time. Thank you so much.
Why is coronavirus not killing as many people?
"Phenomen. Some good news in Australia seems to be that the number of deaths from coronavirus is dropping and infect yesterday Victoria had no recorded deaths for the first time in about two months. So is this reduction in deaths here in Australia like sign of things to come or is it maybe just a bleep? What you're seeing here is the end of the second wave in Victoria and it's just fantastic that we're seeing the numbers of people dying going right down. As. You say it might go up and down a little bit but it will be very very low from now on the death right dropping the right of people dying compared to the number of people who have the disease at all I. Think you've got to look overseas for that Rob van in Australia and it's not easy to calculate. As we've said, many times on Corona cast because it depends on the number of people the proportion of the population being tested, and we really only know the accurate infection fatality rates from things like cruise ships you know the Ruby print says the diamond princess and so on. Because the of testing vary so much from country to country but people who've looked at this still think that the death rate is roundabout point four point five percent, and that's roughly what we've been talking about. Maybe point six percent in the past it's likely that it staying roughly the same but in some countries that does Lucas if it's dropping a fair bit even relation to the testing if you look as the number of cases is increasing, but the death threat doesn't seem to be following suit what's happening there well, one of the reasons is almost certainly that older people are changing their behavior. Keeping themselves to themselves. So while there might not there might be parties in Malaga in Spain and people are going out and having a good time. It tends to be younger people doing that and older people are tending to socially distance that seems to be the way it's going in Europe and elsewhere. So there is a change in behavior and people who are the most vulnerable. The other reason it's changing is that they've got much better at treating moderate to severe covid nineteen disease. So the nursing people in their TUMMIES, they're not jumping into ventilation as quickly and they're using decks methods on which. Reduces mortality rates and people who are who've got severe disease by about twenty percent. So things aren't getting better in terms of the treatment and I think all those things together have reduced the mortality rate from covid nineteen at considerable cost. So part of it is a true reduction in death right? If we're getting better at trading them but I mean people conscious look themselves up forever. How long are they going to keep this self correction for? Well, it's crystal ball stuff. We don't know that but there is a little bit of evidence now that that locking themselves up isn't working as well because. As young people get these large numbers infections in some of the countries they're starting to take them home and their parents and grandparents are starting to get the disease. So that low mortality rate that you're seeing now immediately may well not last. We actually had a question on this from rob which we've kind of covered a little bit but I'm just in the interests of closing the loop rubs asking with the numbers of positive cases in France. Spain and so on. Increasing rapidly and few debts did the first wave just kill all the vulnerable are we seeing case Democ now instead of a pandemic? No. It's it's certainly didn't. You if you just look even in Sweden where it was really bad h care homes, luckily, it did not kill all the vulnerable there. Still plenty vulnerable vulnerable people alive and remember vulnerability can just. Being over seventy or eighty, and there is another issue here too, which is the accuracy of death certificates, and whether we're attributing all the deaths to covid nineteen people who actually died of covid nineteen. So definitely, not an excuse to let our guard down and it could will see an uptick and that's the feature of this pandemic is that you can't relax can't change what you do because it will come back to bite you Israel thought the. Rebound. There were invulnerable obviously Spanish French, and others, and they're paying the price for
Notarize online without leaving home
"In a pandemic still have to get things notarized, but we don't want to go run out in see the notary in person well, pet consol has a solution for you. He's got an APP in a website called notarized Dot Com and he's here to tell us about getting notarized independent DEMOC. Hey, pat tell everybody how this works notarized dot com works just like a facetime call or any of the other apps that you're familiar with the chat with your family or your colleagues, and so you can download the APP store just called notarize or go to notarize dot. com.

You Chat You sign you get your PDF, and you're on your way and how much does this? It's twenty five dollars in how does that compare to seeing a notary in person It depends on the market you know summer five, summer twenty, summer fifty You know we like to compare it to the cost of having come someone drive to your house, which is a service you can pay for. That's typically hundred get two, hundred bucks. So it's it's twenty five dollars to have a notary in your pocket twenty, four, seven in less than thirty seconds alrighty, and there's a there's a notary on the other side of the facetime call like. We've got notaries across the country and they answer these calls and they they help you get your document notarized whenever you need it. How long have you been doing this? We've been this about five years now. All. Right. What what got you started. Yes I accompanied previously that I sold the twitter. It was a search business and You know after selling that I needed to get a document notarized I won't. Will I did a lot of people do which is I went down to the UPS store I gotTA notarized I sent it off and I got a phone call. And they said Hey the notary mess this up. So you got to go do it again and that was really what got me thinking about the problem I just I wanted something where I didn't have to go find a notary I wanted to work perfectly every time always be available. and now we've extended the product of businesses. So we've got a lot of really large enterprises on the platform that they use it to automate a really important process like selling a car on boarding a new private wealth Kleiner mortgage for buying a house whatnot how many people use your service daily? Or weekly whatever. tens of thousands. Daily. Weekly weekly Okay and have you seen boost during the pandemic? Yeah. So our business businesses grown about five hundred percent in the last one, hundred, twenty days which has just been incredible. You know in order to meet the demand, we've on boarded more than a thousand new notaries. Built new software so that they can pay get paid instantly. So if you're notary out there listening if you sign up with us, you can get setup serve clients and get paid same day. So twenty five dollars to you keep five or ten or has it work? It depends on the type of transaction in the client, but it's You know it's it totally varies. Okay well, I'm sure notaries out there would love to hear how you be more specific. So how can they make? Yeah. So on a basic transaction, it might be five in a real estate. It might be twenty five or fifty and we've got you know notaries that have been doing this only for a couple of months already made ten thousand dollars working out the platform. It sounds so perfect. I can't imagine why would want to do this in person any idea what the advantage of going in person is. I mean. It's hard to come up with honestly no You know people tend to love the service. If you read our reviews, we've got you know twenty, five, thousand, five star reviews average rating four point nine seven. Mike. That you know people say is we we save them time and people are busy irrespective of the pandemic and to be able to click and connect and get on with life is really compelling. Now is getting your document notarized as big a deal in today's world as it was ten years ago. I mean I I know about it for real estate are there are other uses that that people have to do daily? Yeah so there are some that are required legally and there's others that companies choose to have done. We're actually seeing a lot of companies opt into the process right now that even if they're not required to. It's really about fraud reduction, and if you think about the Internet now everyone's doing things remotely. If you're a business that's selling a car or mortgage or whatnot, you might not have the chance to sit down face to face with your clients. So how do they have the efficiencies of the Internet while still being able to trust the people that they're transacting with and a lot of people are turning to our service? So we think the markets we're seeing the market growing. Already notarize. Dot. com

As everyone is well aware dues with Ben Democ, are realities have shifted quite a bit so today we want go over some of the practice steps you can be taking since going back to normal is probably not going to happen for a little while. How do you think people are feeling right now? So I think the pandemic. A lot of people have been talking about how we can relate this to the stages of grief, and where we are on that spectrum, and in those step so I think what I'm seeing now is that a lot of us have moved to the acceptance? The acceptance that this is not going to be finite amount of time where it's over. It's not gonna be flipping a switch when we come out of isolation and so. So. It's really moving into acceptance and thinking about. How do I begin to navigate the world again? How do I begin to continue working on the goals? I had so that I don't feel like. I'm frozen for six months or a year right when it was three months or two months or two weeks, you have a different approach then looking at it now more than long term so accepting at its long-term in thinking about what can I do now? And for my side, even thinking about this in continuity framework where you're planning for unusual things to happen, you think about it in the context of response and recovery, as in something happens, you respond to it, and then you recover back to normal and I think many companies that I. Have worked with are all struggling with the fact that even though their plans were at quote, unquote indefinite period in this new reality, they weren't really set up for an indefinite period. That literally is indefinite and I think it's weighing on a lot of people. This is now how everybody needs to operate, and everything needs to adjust so in that sense. It's kind of overwhelming..

I don't think there's an expiration date on glasses yet. But it is an interesting question. So, you know, I'll revisit that again. When I have a little bit more time to, to really look at the, the oth-, Amal, and optometry literature. But it is interesting. We've got a great guest tonight from from RWJ Barnabus. Her guest is Dr sue Wang. She is the medical director for the center for Asian health at the Saint Barnabas medical center. She was recently appointed president elect of the world hepatitis alliance, which is a global patient centered advocacy organization, she's port, certified in internal medicine and pediatric and specializes in adult primary care, she received her medical degree from the university of Miami where it's nice and warm, and humid as she got an MPA master of public health degree from Hopkins. And then she completed her internal residency internal medicine and her pediatric residencies at Georgetown and very interesting. She served as a fellow in the epidemic intelligence service for the CDC now. That's a good one. I'd love to have a conversation with us someday about smallpox, Dr Wang, but she's committed to Asian health and wellness, as well as the clinical identification and treatment of hepatitis b. Including infections in pregnancy. She served on the executive board of alliance since two thousand fourteen and she's a long history a really long history of championing hepatitis B care, and underserved populations. And she's a very strong advocate for expanding hepatitis b and c services to doctors and nurse practitioners are right to start off, Dr Wang. How are you? Thank you for taking time on your Saturday evening. Great. Thank you. Thanks for having me, and thanks. Great untrue. Well, you know, you've got a great background. I would really love to talk to you. I got very involved after the World Trade Center disaster, and in on the bio, terrorism task force in New Jersey. So it's a subject that I'm very interested in. But anyway, just start off, how common is viral hepatitis. Tell us. It's one of the most common blow born diseases of the world, and it's actually the leading cause of liver cancer. And I think a lot of people probably have heard of various kinds of hepatitis, as I mean oftentimes, it's like a alphabet soup almost, you know, A B and C, the one, I'm going to be talking about today, or have b and c which both chronic infections. And that's where the problem comes is that product as opposed to have a, which is often you hear about outbreaks restaurants, and such the EMT are bloodborne in a, very common so happy affects two hundred fifty seven million people in the world, have see if x seventy two million, and in contrast HIV, only thirty five million viral hepatitis B, here, ten times, more common than HIV, but people are way not as aware of it in contrast to HIV, which is a lot of attention recently. So hepatitis, B endemic and the rest of the world. But had he not considering democ in the US? So often not talked about even though it is very. Evelyn insert groups. Yeah. So we've had a vaccine for a long time in the United States. I was in that experimental group in nineteen eighty one and got the hepatitis B so way back and I know worked. I was in a surgical procedure in Chicago. I'll never forget where about six weeks after the procedure. My, my two colleagues, who yeah they both turned yellow almost six weeks to the day after that. And the patient, turn out two weeks later to turn yellow, and I was just fine. So my hepatitis b vaccine, worked just fine. Well, so now may nineteenth was. That's a great story. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. Three of us in the operating room to turn yellow, the guy who had the vaccine did not, and we, you might know these burn cases. Yeah. You leave the operating room and go straight shower. We have blood all over you. It's wonderful thought the listeners out there. May nineteenth. It was the national hepatitis testing day. Now how can someone get screened for hepatitis and what, what should what hepatitis should someone get screened for BC? Tell me. Yeah. No, that's great question. So may trip Titus awareness month and may nineteenth national have to tell you this testing day. So and it's simple. It's blood test, which people are getting going to the doctor. It's done anyway. So we usually say, just make sure your doctor checks, you and the ones we're talking about getting checked for RBM. See. And so we I mean what I tell most of my patients, especially being seen him for the first time you should just know your status. I mean, I say that about HIV to he recommend everybody, no matter your risk factors. Get a one time HIV test, and I would say the same for being see, although the strict recommendations are that people at risk should be tested for hep B and had fee. So she is anybody born between nineteen forty five to nine hundred sixty five but we have some thought that CDC maybe changing that, right? Guideline to be everybody should have a one time, test and for happy in the US. It's largely people who are foreign born or from or. Children people who are born outside the US in endemic areas. And so, just as one example, for Asians whites, a hot topic in my population that I serve Asians make up to fifty percent of those with hepatitis b and a lot of them have never been tested. That's very, very interesting. We'll we'll tell us a little bit about the center for Asian health at Saint Barnabas medical center. How does the center provide individual care and support for for that population? Yeah. So what's interesting about our area is that where a very diverse area, the New York, New jersey area used to work in your city. New Jersey is almost just as diverse, we have the third highest and population following your California. And so I realized that the move to New Jersey there was a real meat here to provide services for this Asian population. And so my practice is a comprehensive practice on the center for Asian health. We're bilingual and Mandarin Cantonese and Korean, we also provide individualized navigation to help patients, get the services. They need we know in the US healthcare systems, very complicated and even more complicated. If English is not your first language, we also do a lot of community outreach who go out and do health fairs where out in the community we do free screenings. And then on the other side, we also do research grant based initiatives to help extend our reach, and we do that in areas such as Titus be so a lot of. Oh, combination of programs and also direct clinical care. So I actually wasn't aware that hepatitis B was so prevalent in Asian populations. Why is that? So nobody knows exactly why it's kind of like a chicken and egg. But because it's passed down from mother to child like thirty to fifty percent in the world. That's how people get it. So it gets passed on has passed down that way. And so it's not just Asia Africa, all of Africa's considered to make eastern Europe. A lot of Latin American countries the Caribbean. We've done a lot of screenings in the Haitian population. And so what I tell people it's like it's in the rest of the world. It just so happens that in the US, it's not considered endemic country. And so it's, it's, you know it's just one of those diseases that because pass through childbirth it, as you know, staying, but that's why the vaccine like you're talking about is like a huge game changer. And as a nineteen Ninety-one, because, like, not going after you did the trials, it became part of Chiltern, Bax nation. So anybody born after nineteen ninety one whatever seved at as part of the childhood vaccines. But that means the huge adult population that has not been vaccinated yet. So this is a great message that you. Just sent that it actually works in adults too. Oh boy, I'll tell you. It's a it's a sore subject now with all the people in the New York area. Not getting measles vaccine. It's crazy. We positions know that, you know, the vaccines are so say, again, I, I was in that first responder group to take the smallpox vaccine that went actually isn't so safe. But, but I would take it anyway rubbed up against an infected cow to get that after. Yeah. Anyway. My treatment for us. Yeah. And it word, it's, it's so important. So my guest this evening is, is a spectacular physician, Dr sue Wang, who's the medical director for Chinese the Chinese medical program at Saint Barnabas medical center, which is an RWJ Barnabus health facility of which there are a lot now. Now, I do want to get to the difference between hepatitis B and C because a lot of my patients, they come in, they tell me oh, I had hepatitis b or hepatitis, and they have no idea what kind of hepatitis and we test them, and it was a or something like that. So tell us what's the difference between Dan, see? So being seized. So the common, we'll go with the commonality. So they're both viruses. And they're both bloodborne transmitted which is different from a which can be transmitted, if you don't wash your hands so being not casually transmitted, which is, you know, the thing that the myth, we kind of have the debone that you can eat with people with the head fee can, you know hold hands. You can kiss you can like cough. It's like you're not it has to be through blood. So that's why in, in the in the in the in the previous generation where we weren't screening for during blood transfusions. That's how a lot of it was transmitted. So people who had hemophilia other transmissions or transfusions. That's how they got for happy or have see. But now it's those are all screen for we do universal precautions. So really, it's not transmitted that way. So the NFC both also over time and it's silent. This is why tell people even if you don't have symptoms you wanna to get. Tested because over time silently, that inflammation can lead to throw SIS in liver cancer..

You can see a sense of uncertainty in quite a few asset classes, maybe the takeaway from last week's trading action was that you had solid Chinese economic data yet progress on US China trade dodge tones from the fed that should have really spurred a rally in stocks. But we're not we're not seeing that is that a Radi priced in. Go and moaning. Yeah. I think that's an important question. Because I think you know, we'd sort of seeing this rally in the first quarter. Now, we're sort of in this polls period. Perhaps I think there's going to be a lot of focus on high profile corporate names, not just intangible they report, but perhaps more importantly how they think about the future. If there is a little bit more confidence about that future than I think, that's that that would be very supportive. I don't actually think there's been a huge amount of change in the underlying tone of the macro data. I think on balance things Amal generally better than they were. So I think that it's probably a little bit of waiting for some of the guidance that the culprits might give. So what's really needed here for the next leg up? The markets. Live team is asking the question of the day. What is the minimum needed from this week? Slew of tech earnings drive equities higher again, do they need earnings to beat or just more positive guidance. Well, we've gotten into the situation whereas ever it's very early days in the reporting season. But I think through the end of the business week last week, you don't eat had less than twenty percent of US companies or pull, but as usual three quarters of the beating. Revive estimates many of which have been revised down. And I think it's I think you're right. I think it's not necessarily about just beating the headline number. I think it's going to be about the guidance. I think some of the guidance in Q one was a little bit downbeat as companies reported the Q four innings, and I suspect that actually that might be a slight pick-up in tone because everything that we've seen in the last three months, just the lower those fears about global recession that was still with us at the time of year. I think a lot of those fears of abated, and they've culprits back that up until about growing that businesses talk about investing at cetera. Then I think that would be that would be the most encouraging thing. How do you read the European equity scene at the moment and move got news around Barclays plan to cut bonuses to investment bankers as division the performance? According to the financial times, are you are you defensive at the moment on European lenders in terms of European financials and banks. Yes, we've I'm afraid we've sort of go to. Secularly roll the skeptical view on European banks. I think there's a two issues one is that strategically I think a lot of the big banks. If had a really shoes around what their strategy is. They've been trying to get into compete with the American firms and investment banking seemingly for decades an rarely being able to pull that off unless face it the macro environment. In terms of where interest rates are in Europe is extremely challenging for good old fashioned banking. And I think we shouldn't forget that. So I don't see many great investment opportunities from the equities in in European banks afraid. We have a lot to get through waiver spilled dinning stays with me. So take a closer look at the commodity markets, specifically oil krill tear of the US announced. It's.

He's pointed out that the democratic response to Representative Ilhan Omar's remarks about Israel were handled quite differently than the way Republicans responded to Republican congressman Steve king's racist remarks the action we took with congressman Steve king was based upon what we heard in our own party saying that is not what this country believes in. It's not what the party of Lincoln stands for. We took action. We didn't have to take something to the floor. We didn't have to wake week weeks. We didn't have to water down our action at all we removed him from every single committee. I think it's an action that people would celebrate throughout the country. The difference.

"I started to show talking about the government shutdown over thankfully, gang. But really, we're not out of the woods. President Trump called spending negotiations that have restarted on Capitol Hill. He called him a waste of time in several Republicans in congress say that they do not want the president to follow through on his threat to declare a national emergency to build the wall. Anyway, no matter what congress says, meanwhile, house speaker Nancy Pelosi said there will be no money for a wall in this next round of negotiations. So that on Thursday, the president had this to say about speaker, Pelosi's refusal to fund that wall, and by the way, if you go to a one and you take. On that wall. You will have so many people coming into a country that dancy Pelosi will be begging for a walk should be thinking for a long. She will say Mr President, please, please give us a wall. Nancy Pelosi is not currently begging for a while. But there, but there are some signs of flexibility. I noticed Nancy Pelosi yesterday said no money for the wall will ever be spent, but the barriers or infrastructure might be order might be in order. The government is back open and funded now but funding for the government runs out on February fifteenth, and Jonathan part there's a cement game that starting with the wall here. I noticed where Nancy Pelosi said there will be no money for a wall. There might be barriers there might be fences. I like infrastructure Republicans on the hill say call it, whatever you want something that's going to be built and everybody seems to be getting ready to claim victory when something gets built just don't call it. The w word, right? And I would quibble with your characterization that the semantics games are starting democ-. Rats have been talking about border security for months now, they just are adamant about this. This idea of a wall in answer Pelosi has been very clear about that other Democrats been very clear about that. But they are talking about. Hey, what about more more enforcement officers? What about more drones, but about more technology? What about all these other things you could do to enhance border security Democrats have been clear about that? And if that's what it takes in order for them to come to a deal by February fifteenth great. But if the president keeps himself on this idea that he must have a wall, which we know from the New York Times is simply a device that the campaign came up for him to remember to talk about immigration if he insists on having a wall, then we could be in a situation where a national emergency is called. And we'll be in more uncharted territory. Read if we get to a place where infrastructure is built in politicians of different. Stripes. Call it what they want in order to claim victory that won't necessarily be anything new in Capitol Hill politics. But what about this this conference committee? This latest round in negotiations. Are are they intent on getting to a place where there isn't a shutdown again? Well, you've got a number of Republicans who are up Perea Lexington. Twenty twenty who saw the the political peril that the lead the thirty five day shutdown caused them and and cost President Trump and a lot of the members of the of the conference committee that are negotiating I mean, these are serious guys. They're appropriators. There's a Senator dick Shelby of Alabama the longtime appropriate or himself said something like, hey, let's, you know, let's stop the democratic and Republican talking points and let the appropriators do it which hearkens back to a time in in congress. When there were three parties there were the Democrats, the Republicans and the appropriators, and if that if those are the the guys who were coming up with some kind of deal, then yes, something can happen..

"I question your dismissing of the fact that that Scholtz, you know, if he is to run that that he wouldn't peel away some key Republican voters, or or or at least a significant critical mass of them again to quote your line that he could be beaten the president could be beaten by his softest supporters. I mean, just listen to what Howard Schultz himself said on Tuesday to CBS this morning because he actually sees his candidacy is potential candidacy as providing a home for some Republicans from publicans have a choice between a far left liberal progressive candidate on a democ-. Critic side or President Trump President Trump is gonna get reelected if I can get in the race. And I only need fifteen percent to be on the debate stage. I will provide the Republicans where the choice that they do that. They do not have David from. I mean, we're focusing on the impact that this could have on the Democratic Party. But but are Republicans to be concerned about it? If they want to see President Trump reelected, I don't I don't think. So I spent a lot of the first half Howard Schultz said in that comment is absolute right. If the choices between a far left democrat and President Trump President Trump will probably win that's the salutory lesson that Howard Schultz is pounding home right now. The Democrats don't go to the left. If after the second. Oh, look, I I spent a large part of my pre Trump Korea writing. But how there is among the people write checks, the Republican party that there is this vast constituency out there that wants to see more immigration, less healthcare. And as we said in the very first segment, that's not the most under represe-. Representative from the American public doesn't want to see more healthcare unless immigration and Donald Trump figured that out or into blundered into maybe didn't figure it out in two thousand fifteen and that's why he saw off a lot of people who were better at the game. Jeb Jeb Bush was a two-term governor of one country's most important states, really good at politics, and a very smart guy, and with with clear views, and he basically except on maybe the life issue, basically was in Howard Schultz is corner. And he could not win a Republican nomination. I I don't think I think she'll find that the people he's talking to are already sufficiently repelled by Donald Trump to open to a democratic message. If the democratic message is not too frightening. I see so then so that, but then that limits shelters potential constituency as we were talking about at the very beginning of the show lead. Druckman you've been waiting patiently here. Let me bring you bring you back in what's your response to what you're hearing from David Nira. Well. I think I I think David's right that that Scholtz will actually fade away pretty quickly. I think he's a he's a he's a hot Cup of coffee right now. But he leaves that cost. A while And then it it gets gets. it gets cold..

Democrats had power in California for decades and things have gotten worse for the middle class. What hoped you see in California? Now that new will be governor. Yeah. I mean, I'm not very hopeful actually, which is ironic because I love living in Los Angeles. And I can tell you that even in LA there has been and he's just becoming governor now, but the amount of homeless people has increased tremendously will last time. I was in Berkeley, our car got broken into on a pretty nice street Reta steak joined the cargo broken into basically in front of the state joint Borton stakeouts like a nice place and they stole stole my bag.

They literally ripped the rings off my brother-in-law's mother's fingers, pretty violent. I mean, she was bruised the whole thing. So I think there's some bad trends in cal-. Gornja for sure I mean in in San Francisco, they've got an app to tell you where human poop is on the street. I'm not making that up. I saw somebody shooting up in Berkeley on a on a side street. So there's a lot of trends that are bad in California. Newsome got good hair. He's got a nice smile as all the right things. But he's for big government. He thinks that government can resolve all of these things. And I don't think government, can I think government basically makes all of these things worse. So I'm not very hopeful. Unfortunately for California, which sucks because I I love living, California. And you can't beat the weather, and I really do like the people end in LA. There's a resurgence of some interesting political conversation happening. I mean, you know, Shapiro's here in LA and Dennis Prager here in L A and Peter Teal's here in L A in Sam Harris's ear in LA and plenty of other people are here in LA right now. So there is an interesting intellectual set happening in LA. And I, you know, it's just unfortunate. But if somebody wants made move to Texas. Make me an offer. I can't refuse. Okay. Let's see.
