Israel and the UAE: why now and whats next?
"Is the greatest advancements toward peace between Israel and the Arab world in the last twenty, six years and it marks the third formal peace between Israel and an Arab nation. The diplomatic, Reproche Mon to nounce between Israel and the United Arab, Emirates last week is not in and of itself quite as big a deal as its orchestrators wished to claim the two countries have never been to war with each other the official hostility to Israel such as it was usually sounded pretty phoned in done for foresake when other Arab governments let fly with the fire-breathing choruses of condemnation in Israel's direction.

This deal is a significant step towards building a more peaceful secure and prosperous middle. East US President Donald Trump is claiming credit for brokering this agreement but suggestions by his proxies and flunkies that this is somehow worthy of the Nobel peace prize he frantically desires. somewhat optimistic granted that President Trump's predescessor barrack Obama was just given. One is a sort of housewarming present but an exchange of ambassadors between Israel and the U. A is just not a seismic recalibration comparable with the peace reached between Egypt and Israel in Nineteen, seventy, eight or Israel and Jordan in nineteen, ninety, four, I say to the people of Israel and Jordan. Now. You must make this peace real. To, turn no man's land into every man's home. To take down the barbed wire to remove the deadly minds. To help the. wounds. Of War to heal. However via the normalization of Israeli, Emirati relations may not be big deal. It may portend things which are indeed it's the fact that it isn't a big deal which may be the really big deal here. Israel's only two previous such agreements with countries as referenced above were with Egypt and Jordan neighbors against whom they fought wars. They were extraordinary responses to extraordinary circumstances. The agreement with the UI founds a diplomatic relationship which seems more or less remarkable than say, a diplomatic relationship between Denmark and Malaysia Will Senegal and Peru.

Two significant shifts underpinning this realignment one is that in recent years Israel and the Arab states have discovered something they agree on Iran which regard as some combination of nuisance menace and existential threat. The other is that Israel and the Arab states have discovered something that they no longer disagree on at least old that much Palestine, which the rest of the Arab world seems less and less keen on pretending to care about a much ballyhooed component of the Israel you deal was Israel's promised to suspend its plans to annex the West.

So sinister, it is simply that Palestine is increasingly regarded in Arab capitals as yesterday's cause and as a baffling boring headache one of the hardiest diplomatic truisms is Lord Pompton Quip that nations have no permanent friends no permanent enemies just permanent interests right now to the UAE and other Arab states which may follow.

"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.
Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?
"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.

Pompeo addresses order to close China's Houston consulate
"Setting out clear expert ations for how the Chinese Communist Party is going to behave, and when they don't we're going to take actions that protect the American people. That was Secretary of State Michael Pompeo talking earlier today, over in Copenhagen, Denmark. This was in response actually at the United States closed the Chinese consulate down in Houston, We turn now to Bill fairies. He heads up our national security coverage for Bloomberg. So, Bill this was quite a dramatic announcement that most was well, two up to this morning. What happened here? Well, you know, there's been a drumbeat of tensions back and forth between us and China. The U. S. Says that this is in response to ongoing intellectual property theft by China. That Secretary Pompeo said, has cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. What we don't know if if there was, for instance of specific intelligence Operation going on that the US was trying to shut down. We do know that in the last year there have been two Chinese citizens in Houston, who have been indicted and convicted for trying Tio trying to steal trade secrets from the energy industry. So we don't know that specifically is related. But it is something that's obviously been on the U. S radar for a little while now. So in the terms of diplomacy, this is a pretty serious step for one country to kick out consulate out altogether, having a few years ago as I recall with Russia as well, what's likely to be the Chinese response. Well, Typically, it's a straight kind of protesting where the Chinese would look a U. S consulates in China at and close one of them with the same 72 hours notice. It'll be very interesting if they do something that's a little bit less than that, because that would signal on attempted de escalation. But the U. S has, I think five consulates in China And I would expect everyone who's based their eyes a bit on it now about whether they'll have to be going home this week. So, Bill, What's the endgame here is far as you can figure. I mean, do we think that the Chinese are going to change their conduct on intellectual property because we closed a consulate in Houston? The short answer is no. I don't think this will probably, you know, served. I think it's much more of a symbolic kind of moved by the U. S.

Reopening schools during the COVID-19 pandemic
"Now we have contributing correspondent. Gretchen Vogel she in two other science news staff Jennifer Cousin Franklin Megan. whalen worked on comprehensive story on reopening schools during the coronavirus pandemic. Hi, Gretchen Hi, this is a very complicated story and tell you the truth. I'm a little frustrated because I. Just WanNa answers, but there are so many unanswered questions out there about current Ivars in children for example, how likely are kids to get an infection if they're exposed to an infected person? Do we have any numbers on that? The story was was fascinating, but also really frustrating to work on because we kept saying. Why are these answers so? There are no hard and fast answers, but there is accumulating evidence that kids newborns up to for purposes, eighteen are less likely to be It's not clear why that is, but it does seem likely that children are about one half to one third as likely as adults to catch the virus in the first place. That's not one hundred percent clear, but let's consistently showing. Showing up in a lot of data then once we get past that question of how likely is a kit? Get infected. We ask the next question. It's still open, which is if they do get exposed to infection and they acquire it. Do they actually get sick? That is also not a number that we know in part because there's so little testing of people who don't. Don't show any symptoms and to find out if somebody is infected, but not showing any symptoms, you have to test a whole lot of people for the trifecta of unknown. How likely is a kid to transmit this infection? So there is some evidence out there saying that even if they do get infected, they are somewhat less likely to share it to other people. That's correct. Correct. There were a couple of intriguing case studies early on I was a kid. In France, who was infected, a family friend was in a ski chalet with his family, and t caught the virus. He tested positive, but didn't yet. No, that between the time he was infected, and and the time he was tested. He attended ski school and Language School in his regular school. Officials, tracked down more than seventy of his contacts and none of them ended up being infected. Even two of his siblings were uninfected. All three siblings shared other viruses, some minor cold viruses. They all had it was that they had contact with each other, but the coronavirus did not pass from this child to anyone else. They could find so that's really intriguing, but it's only one case right right, so it's hard to extrapolate from that. What our story talks about are some newer data from France that are also intriguing in a little town north of Paris. There was pretty large outbreak in high school early February. Teachers happened to get infected way before anybody knew that the coronavirus was circulated in France and so two weeks between the second of February and the fourteenth February when the school went on winter break, the virus had a chance to spread a few weeks later, when researchers looked at how many people had antibodies to the virus, they found that thirty eight percent of pupils, forty-three percent of teachers and fifty nine percent of non teaching staff had been infected, the also looked however at elementary schools in the town and there they found three kids who based on when symptoms had started, and the fact that they also had antibodies to the coronavirus. They figured these three. Three kids probably had been infected by their family members, and then attended school, because they weren't very sick, but they were infected, and they checked with all of their close contacts, and it did not look like they had passed it on to anyone. So this is getting at the idea that there is a sliding scale that younger students might be less likely to carry INS spread versus older students in the high school years. Certainly babies seem to be least impacted and toddlers, and then elementary school kids, and then as you get past the age of ten or eleven, the risk of both acquiring and passing on the virus does seem to increase and high school. School kids seem to be fairly good at both acquiring and passing on the virus be not quite as good as adults, but there does seem to be an increasing risk of both catching and passing on the virus as you age, but that's great news right if that's true, that is really good news for safety of babies for the safety of preschools, and for the safety of elementary schools we have now are setup. We have the limited knowledge we have about their risks of getting sick or infecting others, and then we are talking about reopening schools as the end of summer approaches. What parents would administrators governments are trying to do is balance the risks to. To the health of children and staff against the risk of not having their kids in school, what kinds of things that have taken consideration on that other side of the equation? What our kids missing out on besides actual learning? If they don't go to school in the fall, such a balancing act, because schools are really really important for kids and for society as a whole right, they go to school first contacts, and for their emotional and social development, and then lots and lots of kids and the world get a fair amount of their food at school. Especially, the most vulnerable kids are really dependent on some of the food programs that are at schools. Also sadly, schools are place where some of the most vulnerable kids who might be subject to abuse at home where some of those signs are picked up, and where other adults in their lives can raise red flags and say hey. Maybe something's not right here, so there have been signs that child abuse cases have also been going up as kids have been staying away from school. There's a lot of pressure to reopen schools, but there's. There's not a lot of information about how to do that safely. But as part of your reporting on this year team did some pretty extensive research into how all these different programs that have reopened have fared he. You talk a little bit about what you looked at and what you're looking for. We did to a lot of research. We're intrigued because I live in Berlin and Jennifer lives in Philadelphia and Megan lives in Washington DC. DC Jennifer and I, both have elementary and middle school aged kids Jennifer's were at home. Mine started to go back to school with other kids in Germany at the beginning of May. This part time just a couple of days a week. My fifth grader for example went four days the whole week part time, and then was two weeks off, and then again went four days, and then was two weeks off. They were trying to keep. Keep class sizes super small so that if somebody did happen to be infected and attend school, they would only infect portion of their class. Not Everybody and they tried to keep the desks spaced far apart, so they were trying to keep as few in the classroom as possible so that they can keep a distance from each other. That was my experience in Germany and we wanted to know how other countries had approached the question. We looked at everywhere from South Africa to Benin to South Korea and Japan and Taiwan and lots of countries across Europe. Canada had opened some schools. Most schools in the US had stayed closed in part because summer vacation tends to happen a little earlier in the US, so we took a look at what had happened in those countries that had opened up to different degrees, for example the Netherlands started back with their elementary schools I and small classes, and only part time, but then they gradually as. As things went well, and they saw very few outbreaks in schools gradually opened more and more than we at the same time checked to see if overall rates of infection in the country had changed and in many places we found they hadn't. There's a big caveat there. Though most of these countries had fairly low rates at the time that they open schools, and they had the system place when an outbreak maybe happened to detected and to identify context and isolate them for the two weeks that you. You need to isolate people to make sure they're not going to pass that on. So what is a common practice? When a student has positive for coronavirus, some places would close the whole school. If one student was infected, other places would only isolate the people who had been in direct contact with the student, so their classmates with a subset of classmates that they had been attending within their small reduced size classes, and then that teacher, or any other teachers. We didn't see a big difference in. In end outcome race between those approaches. What did seem to make a big difference when you looked at all these different schools what seemed to make the most difference was close a small, so the kids could stay separate and wearing masks. Now there were different approaches in different places for example, most places in Germany made them optional, although some in some schools, everybody had masks on it and others only when you came in or were in the bathroom or in the hallways. Did you wear your mask? Israel was one interesting example where they did not try and reduce class sizes, so they went back to their fairly large classes thirty to forty kids. But they really did mandate masks for everybody, and that seemed to go k, until it got super, Super Hot, and then it was just impossible to ask people to wear masks all day, and so the health department and the Education Department said Okay Fine. Let's leave the masks away, but then about two weeks later they had a humongous outbreak in one high school, and some other smaller outbreaks in other places as well so it it. It suggestive that asks. There were making a difference when they couldn't do. The distancing that were happening in other places like Denmark where they they went to great lengths, and even held classes, churches, or outside, or whatever to keep kids as far apart as possible and as much fresh air between them as possible I'm in Indiana and I actually have my daughter in daycare right now because I'm in a county with st low levels. I am very nervous about it, and we keep our eye on the numbers. Because that's what I see as really important gauge for whether or not, it's safe to have my kid go to a situation with six other kids. Do you feel like that background level what your community spread like is important for what's happening at your school. Absolutely, Yes, that is a huge caveat that cannot emphasize enough that the background level of community spread needs to be at A. A low enough place that you can identify outbreaks when they happened in noticed them, and that you can take measures to try and slow them down I. Think if that situation then the harm to kids. Keeping schools close vastly outweighs the potential risk of opening schools right now. Schools are closed colleges or closed, but once the university kids come back, and all the schools are open. We might see a very different background that we need to take into consideration. And Be Flexible. If school need to close again, absolutely universities are such a different situation than high schools elementary schools I mean as we talked about the risk increasing with age, so I think that's going to be a real issue in the fall as universities try to open back up. What do you think are the main takeaways from your review of all these different openings in different countries and in different schools? It's still a little unsatisfying, yeah. Is operatives data are really of still released sparse and it super frustrating, because it's such an important question. It feels like we should have better answers, but we simply don't yet. I do think the main takeaway is is you have to be flexible if to recognize that you can't go back to pretending that the viruses and there or if you do you're GONNA end up with big outbreaks and you're. GonNa have to shut everything down again. Like happened in Israel. One other interesting takeaway that I found was that when we looked at the outbreaks that had been identified, it was frequently teachers who were more affected than kids often. Often it was hard to tell because there were very very few cases where people had really carefully done the tracing that they did in that town in France, but it looked at first glances, or maybe the teachers were spreading it to each other more than to and from the kids. I think that's something that's important to keep in mind as we move toward reopening, because teachers are better able. I think than kids to do the physical distancing. I think it's it's helpful to realize that. Maybe adults are the bigger risk factor than the kids I know. A lot of teachers are super worried about going back for good reason we know as parents and teachers. The kids are generally really good at spreading germs. Happens every single winter exactly and so when the middle of pandemic where people are dying, and then somebody says well. You have to go back and stand in a classroom with even half of the normal kids. In contact with these lovely little people who you really enjoy being with, but you also see his German accelerators All, day long is definitely giving a lot of teachers. Pause for good reason, but I think one of the things that we did see emerging as a pattern was the teachers maybe should be wary of each other more than they need to be wary of their of their students I do think also that reducing class sizes and finding some sort of creative hybrid solution where kids. Kids are in school part of the time, but then doing the distance learning also part of the time. I think that's GonNa to be unfortunately the way forward for now until we get things a little bit more under control. We've talked mostly about anecdotal findings, so far are their studies in schools that are taking a look at this and going to give us some good. Good answers. That's another thing that the story mentions. There are a couple of real studies that are starting in the UK there researchers who have started projects at several schools where anybody who wants can be tested both for antibodies and active virus, and so they're hoping to get a better picture of when somebody's infected. How far it spreads in a school and in Berlin and in. In the state, German state of Bavaria also very projects have started all right. Thank you so much, Gretchen thank you Gretchen.

"Our second story today, the government of Denmark has decided not to stand in the way of true love Danish officials recently eased corona virus restrictions for travellers from other Scandinavian countries in Germany so long as they were visiting the country for a legitimate purpose, these new regulations have some interesting specificities. One is that they will now allow entry for people who are seeking to reunite with their spouse or fiance in Denmark. The easing also applies to other romantic couples as long as they've been in a relationship for at least six months. However, the partner who is attempting to cross the border has to present evidence of their relationship and the duration of this dalliance. Deputy police chief Alan Dowager Clawson told Danish broadcasters that the people attempting to enter can bring along a photo or a love letter. Also adds I realized that these are very intimate things, but the decision to let the partner in ultimately rest on the judgment of the individual police officer. Later, the government said that within a couple of days partners of residents of Denmark living across one of its borders would be asked to produce a written declaration to be granted entry. Justice Minister Nick. Hi Curb said if you say you are in a relationship and put it in writing. That's enough. We should note here. However that online relationships do not count. The police would acknowledge text messages or personal information as evidence. Most notably, the partners would have to prove that regular in-person meetings before the krona virus outbreak and the relationships that consisted of quote. Written or telephone correspondence would not be recognized in the context of current entry restrictions. Data should also said it was up to the visitor to decide what information would be presented to border officials. This move is not without controversy. In fact, some opposition lawmakers have already. Syphilis criticized the new procedure over privacy concerns. Kristen Hagar, Social Liberty Party, said I've never heard of a country where entry requires the showing of intimate tax or photos from a partner, we finally allowed couples to visit each other, but we did not abolish the right of privacy. It's not all star crossed lovers, however under the new rules, grandparents are also allowed to enter Denmark to visit their children. The list of people allowed entry includes students who were attending Danish. Colleges people who are traveling for medical treatment or to tend to funeral or to appear at a trial. Also, if you're a tourist, you can still get in. You are allowed to cross the border so long as you have a holiday home in Denmark and you intend to spend time there. If you are just trying to have a vacation in a rented property or hotel, the government will turn you away. The Danish government is also expected to present more comprehensive guidelines for tourists by the end of this week..

"Ten to thirty years is two point seven six percent that compares to the US thirty or mortgage rate on average of four point five five percent. Now in the US thirty year mortgages are based based on a tenure expected light because of the refinancing. So they're priced off ten year treasury. So that four point five percent is an apples to apples comparison with the two point seven six percent ten plus your mortgage rate in Denmark. Now, we have to look at what what what our government bond yields in Denmark, the ten year government bond is healing zero point one three percent compared to the ten year. Treasury yield a two point six nine percent in the US so mortgage borrowers households that bar are effectively borrowing in Denmark for two point oh seven five percent above the comparable government bond. Yield in the US that spread is one point eight six percent so mortgage borrowers for thirty year. Mortgage are barring the paying about one point eight six. More than ten year treasuries. So effectively once you just for the spreader what government bond yields are. Denmark. Danish borrowers pay about zero point eight percent more. For their mortgages, relative to the government bond yield than the US. How is it? That's not very much. Especially considering. That the government doesn't guarantee. Mortgages against default. Like, they do in the US, you would think that Denmark. Danish borrows we'd paying significantly more because of the higher cost of capital. Reflecting the credit risk that the banks hold. But they don't. And the reason why is the default rate on Danish mortgages is extremely low typically less than zero point two percent per year. Currently in the US the default rate on mortgages is three percent. A goddess high as eleven and a half percent in the first quarter of twenty ten. The low was one point four percent in q four two thousand four we compare that to Denmark for most for decades, it's been less than zero point five percent. The highest that I could find was nineteen ninety. It was one point five percent during the housing crash. The default rate on Danish mortgages was zero point two percent. And it's not the Federal Reserve. A report Federal Reserve Bank of New York report pointed out that Danish housing prices during the financial crisis they fail just like US prices and the Konami in Denmark is is is volatile. It goes through periods of contraction and expansion just like everywhere else the difference is in Denmark, the homeowner is personally liable for the mortgage loan if the borrower misses a payment foreclosure takes place within six to nine months. The Bank has the collateral of the house, but even after for closure, the borrower remains liable for any debt that goes unpaid and that obviously discourages delinquency. That's very different than US. If once you four if you get foreclosed on if you're underwater, the Bank cannot come after you, you're not personally personally liable. For that. Why? Because the US government is stepping in to protect the Bank or the the the.

"And that's what we aim for. So we aim for converting hearts and minds using the social pressures that they're using Denmark that encourages people to get jobs into work and to stay employed because almost seventy percent of the population in markets employed despite the fact that they have a massive social welfare system, seventy percent of the population is at any given time employed. In addition to that, if you are of were. Being age and able bodied and you don't have a job. The government will either require you to constantly look for one or they will assign you a job say, look, you're not working, but you got strong legs or strong back or you got a strong mind. We're gonna. We're gonna put you to work doing something for us because we're not gonna sit around and collected check. So my point here is that it's working in Denmark sort of now they admit already that this is not sustainable for them that they're gonna have to make some changes if the trends continue the way they're the way they're continuing. But my point is it's working sort of in Denmark now, but it would work so much better if they reduce their social welfare system and just made a couple of changes to move closer towards the free market. And that's, that's what I said from the beginning as you move closer towards liberty and further away from totalitarianism everybody benefits, wealth, prosperity, and opportunity. We grow for everyone. And as you move closer towards totalitarianism and stadium, things get worse for everyone. That doesn't mean that you can't have a society function with a big social welfare state and a very capitalist free market in the private sector that is technically possible. You can have high taxes and still have a vibrant free market. If you protect property rights, if you keep corporate taxes, low, if you allow if you keep regulation low so that people have the ability to move and adapt as conditions change. It's only when regulation is heavy and unknowable and constantly changing that companies have a problem adapting to it. Just like, look when when interest rates were at ten percent, people still bought houses here in America still happened right when interest rates where we had interest rates double digits and and inflation double digits. People still took out loans. The the world didn't come to the country and come to a grinding halt just because inflation was high and because interest rates were high, people still had to borrow money and they still had to grow companies. So as we make a switch and as things change what companies need, what individuals need is certainty they need stability, they need the ability to move and make changes, and they need to be able to take risk calculated risks in a market. We don't have that in America and what Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and Ottavio Cortez want is not democratic socialism as not Denmark style socialism. That's not what they want. What they want is everything Denmark does plus all the regulation plus the high a. plus the mandated unions plus the the free college plus the free medical care. They want all of that and then some. And that's why. When I ran through the numbers with you, you saw quickly how. Pointless. It is how utterly and completely ridiculous. The ideas that they're espousing are financially Denmark can barely keep it together. And over time they're going to have to make serious changes to either taxes are going to have to go up or benefits are going to go down. They admit this Denmark and America. The Bernie Sanders of the world. One everything they got in Denmark, and then the control and power centralized in the government as well. Now, let's take a little Lisbeth Warren here, for example, move on and talk about her next big grand idea right after I tell you about policy genius, speaking of doing the right thing and being a good Stewart of your money and making sure that you're providing for yourself both in life and in death.

"I think if people wanna come together and collectively bargain that they ought to be allowed to do that, I don't think anybody should be forced to join a union. I think it should be of your own free will. But I think if a union doing a good job of helping the people in the union and the people in the union are seeing a net benefit above and. On what they're paying dues, that they won't have any problem. There won't need to be a mandate to get people to join because there will be social pressure and also benefit pressure that will drive people to join. So in Denmark, they don't have a minimum wage, which is not a drag on the economy. And the only question is between labor and companies, what is the best? What's the best value that they can get for their money? And what have I always said, wages should be set by the employer and the employee. The employer, of course, wanting to pay the least amount they can for the most amount of work and the ploy wanting to get the most amount of money for the least amount of work. This is natural. It's it's an ebb and flow in all society. We as humans all want the same thing and it doesn't change in Denmark, the differences. They don't have that kind of thing. It's also very, very easy to fire a worker in in Denmark. You can get rid of workers making an a very giving companies, the. Ability to constantly fire and hire and and basically protect themselves. And what it allows them to do is be very flexible as needs changes. Technology changes, they can fire and hire as they need to in order to in order to stay afloat in order to stay profitable. There is not the sense. The obligation as there is in many cases here in America or the notion that the company exists to provide jobs to the worker that that is not at all how it is, and it doesn't make sense. The company's job is to make profit and and to then they can hire more workers, the more money that they make and the more value that they add. So they don't have that in. They don't have the, the heavy regulation on the free market markets are largely free, and the government tends to stay out of both labor disputes as well as hiring and firing, even. So even going as forest in terms of bailouts, it is almost unheard of in Denmark. Work for you to get a handout from the government companies either survive or fall on their own merits, and these are all things that kind of combined to showcase. Yes. And this is what I have always said about about socialism in these social welfare programs that everybody wants to promote. I say, if you want to have a large social welfare system, you can do that. If you want to have a very free market system, you can have that Denmark is an example of what happens when you combine aspects of a large social welfare state with extreme capitalism. Now, this is not what we would want as libertarians. What we would want is we would want the, we would want the responsibility of providing for the social welfare system to voluntary is not that we don't believe in there should be a social welfare system. We just believe it should be voluntary, not compulsory, and it's not one of the misconceptions that people have. About libertarians is that we don't care about the poor that we don't that we're not generous or not charitable when. In fact, it's the very people that we that we fight against every day, the Elizabeth warrens, the Bernie Sanders of the world who are truly the ones who are not charitable because they don't give their own money away. They only give other people's money away. And when you tack someone and then redistribute the wealth that is not you being charitable, that's you being a thief. When you open up your own wallet and you give your own free will that, of course, is charity..

"Let's talk about the Denmark. So Denmark is constantly put up by guys like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren as a model for which democratic socialist should follow. And if you if you want to look, he claims at a social, democratic socialist model look only towards Denmark because Denmark is the example that they use. And what you need to understand is that while Denmark has a very large social welfare system, there are several other things at play that allow Denmark to maintain that to me. To maintain that social welfare system. Very, first thing that you need to understand is it is not sustainable. Even the Danes admitted this point that it's not sustainable as they have a as they have a shrinking population, it's going to become more and more difficult for them to provide the type of healthcare and college tuition and all that stuff that they're providing now. So they recognize that higher taxes may be necessary in the future. And right now the Danes already pay. I believe it is forty. Nine percent of the highest bracket is fifty six percent of their income in taxes. It's actually about fifty five point eight. And I think when you look at all of it combined everything that comes in at somewhere around fifty, six percent. Now that does not include a twenty five percent value added tax on everything that you buy. I wanna give you a picture of what it's like to live in in in Denmark. So let's say you make a hundred thousand dollars a year and you. Wonderful and I don't have to pay for any healthcare and I don't have to pay for any college. I go to college for free. And if I if I if I lose my job or I become injured, they've got really, really powerful social welfare benefits for me that all sounds great. But let's say you spend a decade working and you don't really need to access any of that because you're pretty young pretty healthy. You're gonna make over the course of that ten years of you're making one hundred thousand dollars a year. Quick math. If you're in Missouri, that's a million dollars k you make yourself a cool million bucks over the ten years. Well, off of that, you can pull out five hundred fifty thousand dollars because that's what you're gonna pay in taxes so that somebody else can utilize the services that you are not currently using. So you take the million and you back out the five hundred and fifty thousand and that leaves you with what those of you Missouri. That's four hundred fifty thousand dollars. You could just remove zeros and use before five then it's it's too complicated. Don't worry about it. Missourians I'm going to do the math for you. So you got four hundred and fifty thousand dollars leftover. And if you died that by ten, we'll just do a year by year old easier. All you out there, east of them as a river. And we divide that by ten years. That's forty, five thousand dollars. So of the hundred grand that you initially earned forty, five thousand of it. You get to keep. Now let's say that about half of that has to go to pay things like rent and food. You actually have to expect to spend the balance of that money. Okay. 'cause you're actually going to spend most of it. Let's say you save ten percent, right? So we'll back out ten percent for your savings. That's forty,.

"I don't know. Maybe he is an idiot, but if he's an idiot, he knows how to cover his tracks. These. I don't think there's anything there. I don't think these guys have dirt on Trump if anybody would have it would be Cohen because Cohen was his dirty man for years. He was. He was the fixer for years for Trump. So if somebody's gonna know something, it's probably cone, but I don't know. We'll have to wait and see just time will tell. But as for right now, another story out by NBC news, you know, dangling a flag in front of me dangling the piece of meat saying, look, this is going to turn states evidence. Now he's not his. He's gonna cut a plea deal with prosecutors to tell them everything that he knows. He's probably gonna give him a little something in maybe dangle something in front of their faces. But I doubt very seriously that there's going to be anything there of any value. I just don't know that there's going to be a smoking gun. I think that if there was it would come out already if there was some sort of huge felony like Dow, oh, oh, Trump kill the guy once strapped him in the chest with a TRITON. You know, I just don't think that that's out there. Oh, yeah. He killed a bunch of hookers now. I do know that there is a TV series from vice. It's going to be coming out soon regarding the president and I know that they did in fact dig up some dirt on him. I can't relive revealed anything else to you, but I, I know that there is some stuff coming out. None of it of course is, well, I don't know. We'll have to see. I don't know everything that's going to come out, but there is going to be some stuff come out that people have been wanting and wondering about. For a long time, and the vice did come up with a lot of that stuff. So you guys can judge for yourself whether or not it rises to the level of any criminality. But anyway, so that's that. We'll talk about quip here. And then I'll tell you a little bit about Denmark and a model for American socialists. This is the the headline from zero hedge, and this.
