User Coalition Fights To Keep Chinese App WeChat In U.S. Market
"President trump recently issued an executive order that would effectively ban the Chinese APP we chat in the United States starting. In September the order says the APP poses a threat to national security, but is a coalition of users who are trying to intervene. Here's NPR's John Ru which cloud you practices corporate and commercial law in the San Francisco Bay area most of his clients Chinese and they all use we chat so I maintain develop clients through. All, the time I. probably spend two hours each and every day. It's also how he communicates with his sister and eighty five year old mother back in China's Hunan Province. Her Mama when trump issued executive order Jew and other lawyers who also served the Chinese speaking community were alarmed. They discussed it in a we chat group naturally and decided to fight it in court. So they set up a nonprofit called the US we chat users. One of the lawyers from the we chat group she says, they plan to file a suit in the coming days. The group she says has no connection to the Chinese government or tencent the Chinese company that owns Wechat we are not interested in the politics behind us but one the government tries to resolve a problem they should try to minimize the harm. The executive order is the latest in a string of measures. The trump administration has taken against China in recent weeks. It prohibits quote transactions with which at and ten. The term is open to some interpretation, but legal experts expect that APP stores at the very least will have to remove we chat. Angus knee is a lawyer in Seattle. The executive arm is while with its rights determine that something is or is not a threat to American national security, but it's reasoning especially when it's actions have such a negative impact on such a racially kind of based minority needs to be well justified in while supported China's so-called great firewall blocks many Western communication and social media APPS making indispensable. But we chat sensors, sensitive messages, and like every other APP in China, it would be required to hand over information. Should the government ask they're definitely? Security risks to people using those technologies and we need to address that I just wish it was done. Really Ron. Debate is director of the citizen lab and Internet watchdog at the University of Toronto. What the trump administration did as a way I think almost like a nuclear option fighting in court will be tough though Bobby Chesney is a national security law expert at the University of Texas. Oh it's a hugely uphill battle. He says it'll be hard to win a case arguing that the executive order curtails free speech came without due process or amounts to the government taking away property or livelihood. The same holds for a case that says, the government hasn't supplied enough evidence of the risks that we poses a judge is also going to save them, but maybe that somehow helps them to different court bringing a suit raises the profile of the issue, and just might influence how the government interprets the word transaction and ultimately enforces the order. If the legal challenge doesn't pan out businesses like launchings restaurant chain easterly will have to make major adjustments. Hunan style eatery offers group deals, takes orders and stays in touch with thousands of customers in the bay area through we chat. With no dining in because of the pandemic Wong says, easterly is even more reliant on we chat. H. You misleading trembled for now he says they are scraping by without we chat he fears easterly will lose business and its connection to its customers

Commissioner as you wait. To September twenty six what are the the key? The key data points the key. Entry points however, you would like to describe them that you will be focusing in on aside from the student part of the play. We've been paying attention to ten formation. I've always been careful as I talk about data because they never want somebody to say well, they're looking only at that. It's it's really a broad array. And a piece of it has been our student athletes have adapted and our teams have adapted to this environment and recognition that Kovic going to go away and so the ability to support a healthy environment is absolutely the priority and and one of the mantra shared. It was actually on the president's call was to go slow so we can go fast so we can can ramp up and take time to play. We have looked at you know the public health information that that really anyone can access in our communities and our region and I've been with you before. generated a bit of stir on on another.

My Mom who's eighty five years old with an incredible mind for words plays every day. Unfortunately despite America's urgent need for things to pass the time right now, the folks Hasbro decided to kill ea scrabble. For most people. It stopped working on June sixth.

After ten you get to watch pure. Add for other silly games more suitable for children. I did my best to give scrabble go a fair chance, but even if you can get past the distracting graphics lighting up like a Vegas Casino, there are problems. I cost four dollars ninety nine cents a month to get rid of the ADS and get features that used to be free like seeing the best move that you missed. Sixty dollars a year is pretty steep. Second.

The Anthony Fauci controversy
"But we begin with doctor Anthony Fauci before the Senate and this cause all sorts of controversy not frankly I'm sort of perturbed at the controversy the reason being I don't think that she's a bad guy I don't think that algae is out to ruin the American economy I don't think they think that he's a malign influence on president trump I think the doctor felt she is up in the mail just and his job is the epidemiologist his job is to be a doctor of public health when it comes to pandemics his job is not to balance all of the risks and rewards when you go to a doctor you look for diagnosis usually the doctor puts before you a fair number of choices and it is now your determination as to which choice you seek right the doctor puts before you have cancer god forbid and the doctor says to you okay so you're the choices you could have a surgery here the rest and then the possibilities you have to know therapy here the rest of the possibilities are depending on your age maybe the best thing is to sort of let it take its course you're eighty five years old in your prostate cancer maybe the treatment is actually worse than the disease and I have a bunch of choices in front of you does not the doctor's job to make the final determination when it comes to public policy making our elected officials are reluctant to make exactly these determinations why well because they're answerable two weeks they are answerable to us there as we the people the fact that we are now looking to sort of delegate all decision making authority to the experts is V. is the tail end of the progress of the year a stupidity that suggested that if we just gave all power to the quote unquote experts in government and everything would magically we solved the experts are good for experts are good for exports are good for knowing a lot of things that one particular subject but they're not famous for knowing lots of things that lots of particular subject if you ask doctor about you about Keynesian verses Milton Friedman ask economics my guess is that he wouldn't know much more than the average guy but if you ask me about disease vectors and probably knows a lot more than the average guy asking him to be the sole policy maker is really foolhardy and even doctor felt she knows this and so we sort of moved from the left to appoint Dr founded in government when he's not head of government what to use him as a club to wield against elected officials again are answerable all of whom are answerable tossed right the fact that people must want to do that and the fact that the people on the right are responding to that by blending felt use the voucher is to blame for lawmakers abdicating their duty and just pointing to vouching on what he's going to solve all our problems it's stupidity frankly I think the doctor felt she would be the first person to say that it's stupidity he is there to provide medical knowledge and guidance and then it is up to us to determine what risks we're willing to undertake as a society what this means that when people I talk about you in public health experts testify publicly they're always going to testify on behalf of caution because their job is first do no harm on the public health level not an economic level not on the freedom level not a constitutional level not a governmental level the first job is to say how do we save the most lives well into middle of pandemic the easy answer if you're not looking at any of the other factors is stay home until we have some sort of therapeutic or until we have some sort of acting but of course there are other factors to take into account when it comes to public policy making such as the fact that we may never have that team or therapeutic may not be all that effective and the fact that thirty million people lost their jobs in the last six weeks and there are countervailing cost to people losing their jobs losing their livelihood a hundred thousand small businesses shutting out this is where it's at for public of our public officials the people who actually elect elected officials to weigh the evidence the doctor vouchers providing his advice but the evidence provided by economist with the values that we hold dear as a nation I mean it just takes a second for example for a second in a wartime what if you were to ask a public health expert in war time what is the best policy public health experts job is to save as many lives as possible so the public health experts say best strategy here is probably not to do the war right no war is good because that means few people are gonna get shot and killed but if you are not an official in his World War two you know that they're gonna be a certain number of people we're gonna have to risk their lives on the beaches of Normandy it is not to suggest that the public health experts are wrong about everything this is to suggest that everybody has their own specific area of expertise and we're this means a broad area of expertise is really foolish in a Republic we rely on the notion that a diffuse level a value judgment among the American population is gonna be better than any one individual's values the American people overall are going to be wiser about weighing all these factors in balance when they elect people then just one guy who's part of the bureaucracy we'll get to a doctor found had to say is it in that light I don't think what you had to say was all that controversial but I think they're politicians were completely looking to abdicate responsibility for their actual decision making role in American politics right now and simply shouting data and science and public health officials without you saying look what will brexit saying look at all the scientists are saying Hey that's not your only job is supposed to take all that into consideration and then you are supposed to wear all of the values that are currently under consideration plus you're supposed to determine the the level of certainty that public health officials are expressing about the view in the future about the future generally because experts maybe more expert than you but that does not mean that one hundred percent certain knowledge of the

Supreme Court Eyes The President's Power To Say 'You're Fired!'
"At the Supreme Court today the trump administration is trying to make it easier for the president to replace the heads of the country's independent regulatory agencies. The administration is asking the court to restrict or reverse a decision that dates back more than eighty years. Npr legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg reports in two thousand eight the. Us economy was on the brink of financial disaster. A rising number of homeowners quite simply can't pay their mortgages for closures have hit a record high. The National Association of Realtors reported the worst month dropping existing home sales since they started keeping track in the late nineties. Further meltdown in the mortgage market had investors. Heading for the exits in two thousand nine. Congress sought to reestablish oversight and regulation of the financial system among the remedies enacted was a law that consolidated powers from across seven agencies into one call the consumer financial protection bureau. It was placed in the offices that the Federal Reserve and funded by the Fed. The new agency was charged with preventing a repeat of two thousand eight financial crisis. Richard Cordray was its first director for the baby. Had two roles one was to try to prevent an economic collapse of that kind ever happening again. And that was done largely to putting in place rules that safeguarded the mortgage market and ferreted out. A lot of the irresponsible and ultimately failed lending that had occurred once in place. The bureau moved aggressively to protect consumers from bad actors in banking and other financial services also in the CFP BE SITES. Were Bill Collectors. Telemarketers and others accused of misleading practices among these was the Salem Law Firm in Los Angeles investigated for charging consumers illegal. Upfront fees for debt relief services the CFP as part of its investigation demanded certain documents from the law firm. The firm refused contending that the structure of the agency is unconstitutional. Because it's director cannot be fired by the president at will instead the bureau's director like the heads of other independent federal agencies can only be fired for cause meaning malfeasance inefficiency or neglect of duty lawyer? Andy Pinkus who represents the Chamber of Commerce explains the theory of our government is that the popularly elected president will appoint officials and remove them. They're not doing what he wants. So if you take away the president's power to remove someone Then you're drastically limiting the political accountability of that individual that view however lost in the lower courts and the sale affirm appealed to the Supreme Court backed by the trump administration central today. Argument is a case dating back to nineteen thirty five. When President Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to fire one of five commissioners on the Federal Trade Commission over his policy views. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously. That Congress created the FTC to perform quays judicial quasar legislative functions and that the president could not therefore dismiss its members the way he could members of his own administration the sale firm and the trump administration will argue that. The CFPB is different because the bureau's power was placed in the hands of a single director instead of a multi member commission again lawyer. Andy Pinkus multi member agencies the way they're structured our system have to have people from different parties. The president picks the chairman who has a lot of control about how it operates. The terms are staggered. So most presidents will have an opportunity to appoint a number of those people because the trump administration is not defending the CFP structure. The Supreme Court appointed lawyer Paul Clement to argue on behalf of the Bureau Clement notes that there are other single-member directors the government who cannot be fired by the president will among them the control of the currency and the director of the Social Security Administration. The constitution says nothing about the president's power to remove officers confirmed by the Senate pointing to that fact Clement notes. There are literally dozens of independent agencies. That control everything from monetary policy to the stock market to public health and Safety Clement says that the consequences of invalidating the CFP structure could be dire. The issue in this case is like the thread on the sweater. That if you start tugging on it and you tug on it hard enough. Potentially the whole sweater comes undone and the sweater here really is is the entirety of the whole alphabet soup of agencies that all have these four 'cause protections these agencies. He notes are often central to our economy. The Federal Reserve is a great sort of example of why Congress imposes these kinds of restrictions. Because there are certain issues in the world that we deal with the national level where it's nice to have a degree of installation for a discharging a particular duty where it's not GonNa Change with whoever's the president the trump administration however is willing to roll the dice in this case. It argues that if a single director agency cannot be distinguished from a multi member agency the court should reverse. The case decided eighty five years ago. That would throw into doubt not just the CFP B but independent agencies that comprise roughly a third of the government and not just those agencies but also potentially the rules that those agencies have laid down over the years
Neandertals Tooled Around with Clams
"Around one hundred thousand years ago in what what is now. Italy are nandor tall cousins. Wait it out into the shallow. Coastal waters of the Mediterranean Sea in search of clams. Big Grant the the molluscs from the sea floor and perhaps even died for them in deeper water and they also simply collect clams from the beach but the creatures weren't just food in a recent Study University of Colorado Boulder archaeologist Paolo Villa inner team report that neanderthals modified the clams hard shells into tools for cutting and scraping. The clam derived implements were found inside the grow today. Motion rainy a coastal cave. That was first rediscovered around eighty five years ago by examining wear and tear on the shells the researchers determined that about seventy five percent of the tool source material had been found found dead on the beach. These shows had been worn down from being battered by waves and sand but the remaining shells were smooth and shiny indicating that the clams lambs were still alive on the sea floor when they were gathered. These shells were also thicker and therefore might have made more durable tools so even though gathering clams underwater took more work than picking them up on the beach. The effort may have been worth it also found in the growth at any pumice stones volcanic eruptions that occurred to to the south of the site. Those stones may have been used by neanderthals as abrasive tools. The study is in the journal loss. One neanderthals else were making these tools than fifty thousand years before modern. Humans first arrived in Western Europe but neanderthal intelligence was dismissed by the scientific community. Munity during much of the twentieth century in recent years however evidence of their tool use and even artistic abilities has grown neanderthals hunted. That'd made cave art cooked with fire us boats and when fishing just last year for example research by villa and others found that neanderthals tolls living not far from the grocery knee.

What could you expect to see in terms of our our coverage this is the super bowl for business and policy leaders probably the greatest density of CEO's and government leaders in one place all traipsing through the snow together over the course of three or four days and a lot of the business leaders are engaging engaging conversations that are maybe a little bit different than what they're doing from a day to day basis we have a lot of discussions about about capitalism a lot of discussions about environmentalism mm-hmm about poverty around the world What kinds of conversations do you expect to hear? I think the single biggest topic you're going to hear about out this year is the idea of sustainability and. I know that is almost a cliche at this point. And it's a topic that's been addressed before Davos in really started To some degree at Davos however there is going to be a sea change in the way businesses operate and that real cost when when it comes to sustainability. You're looking at companies like Microsoft already that are charging their individual units for their carbon use. And I think you're gonNA see that in a very material way across the board so much of this is actually being led by Europe and some of the disclosure rules. And I think you're GonNa you start to see more and more disclosure around carbon emissions the cost of those emissions what companies are doing on. Es G. and it's just it's the the topic that is being talked about in the boardroom. Is it strange to talk about that. At a at a Swiss ski resort that people have to fly and in some cases take helicopters to get to. What's tell me about that? Disconnect people love to poke fun at Davos and think of it as you know speed dating and over Champagne. And everybody's flying there. I have never been fond of the argument that everybody should swim to Davos or otherwise. They're hypocrites if you really think about how. The dialogue and businesses changed around stakeholders and shareholders and purpose. And all of these things that have taken place place over the last twenty or thirty years they started Indaba. And so you know you can laugh if you want. But I I think that actually really the most meet some of the most meaningful decisions that are happening at the intersection of business and policy are happening there over the years. Joe Becky and Andrew have interviewed the likes of Bano J. P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon His Royal Highness. Prince William the Secretary General Role of NATO and so many more but a consensus favorite for the squawk box behind the scenes team Andrews conversation with conservationist Jane Goodall at last year's event. Here's what Andrew told me about that interview a year later. Can we talk about what might have been my favorite interview that we did last year and that is with eighty five year old soon to be eighty six year old. Jane Goodall Maybe one of my most favorite interviews of my career. Oh that's awesome. I think definitely my most favorite image age. Somebody took a picture of me kissing. Jane's on head. Who took that picture Andrew? I think you did I did. Hey I think you did anyway. it's it's just it's an indelible image. I have long been a great admirer of Jane Goodall. Integrate I've had a great love affair with gorillas and monkeys and The environment and and being able to spend time with her and Talk to her about her own journey and how she sees the world today was really quite something. It was a very charming interaction. Action that you had with her I think that doesn't happen very often. When you're interviewing people especially the CEOS of the business leaders that we talked to in Davos you the other piece of it is? It's very rare and maybe I'm completely jaded but it's very rare. We're sort of starstruck and I was genuinely genuinely starstruck. Buy Jingle Jingle Bells raised about two hundred and fifty million dollars for her foundation for conservation work and environmental concerns and also also education about our planet and about The way we coexist with animals and I thought that message was actually really fascinating leading to bring to a meeting of the global elite. You know I think that what she does. She adds a sense sense of humanity empathy to a conversation among business leaders. That oftentimes missing that piece. Okay this is awesome. Thank you appreciate it.

"Eighty five year old woman. Unwell misses work, not an earth shattering headline. But the woman in question is Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, she's had surgery for cancer and her job is that of US supreme court judge as the court reconvened after the break yesterday. She wasn't on the bench for the first time in her career as a Justice and this matters because she's only one of four liberal judges left. Well, his Jacob perky Lewis is deputy head of the US in America's program at Chatham house. Jacob thanks for coming in this morning. It's not the first time that Ruth beta Ginsburg has had about Ville health is it no in fact, last December just this month gone. She was briefly hospitalized after falling and cracking. A couple of ribs. Every time Ginsburg has some kind of health scare liberal Twitter has approximate because of course, if she were to die or retire her nominee her successor would. Renamed by Donald Trump who is not notably sympathetic to liberal values and has made appointing conservative justices, the cornerstone of his strategy to appease his wing base. So her her continued presence on the supreme court is a very important thing to the American left and centre-left what's wrong with her at the moment. Well, she's eighty five years old is the is the main problem she underwent cancer treatment for Najah lls in her lungs, which I understand not a sort of life threatening diagnosis. But when you're eighty five things that are and still working a fulltime reasonably demanding and high-profile job things that might not be a major issue for someone who's younger and hats bit more flexibility in their schedule are potentially more serious. I mean, we should say, of course, that she's working from home. She has Clark's helping we shouldn't actually write her off. No, no. Of course, not no. And she is an incredibly resilient person. She's been on the court for nearly three decades. And this is the first time she's missed work for us. I mean, that's that's an incredibly strong record. And you know, she she as we heard in. The intro does continue to do a lot of exercise. She has a sort of health routine. She has a personal trainer. She's in the kind of shape that many people Hafer age are not in. But again, the fundamental underlying factor here is that she is eighty five years old, you know, well into old age now some say that she should've left under Obama tenure to ensure that another liberal Tooker place. Do you think she was selfish to stay? I don't know if I'd characterize it as selfish if she were to have left. I mean when what we saw when Antonin Scalia died in two thousand and sixteen once the Republicans took the Senate into. Thousand fourteen they clearly weren't going to allow Obama to appoint anymore supreme court justices. So Ginsburg would have had to retire. No later than two thousand thirteen in order to ensure that Obama could appoint a liberal Justice, and the the Democratic Senate could confirm that person. And I think that would have required a kind of foresight that it's not really possible to have to assume that the Republicans would take the Senate in two thousand fourteen that Republican president would be elected. And again that the Republicans in the Senate would be so deeply intransigent on the subject of appointing liberal appointed supreme court Justice says I think. Is to ask too much of Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, circa two thousand twelve or two thousand thirteen. Yeah. No. I mean as he was saying if she's unable to continue. It means a complete shakeup of the supreme court and beyond that what all the consequences then for the country. So right now, you have five conservative justices appointed by Republican presidents and four liberal justices appointed by democratic presidents at the center of this. You have chief Justice John Roberts who now that Anthony Kennedy has been replaced by the much more reliably conservative..

"Flexible in your lifestyle. Professor, can you do that at the moment? He will actually I could. But then it affects my future. Well, even if you living income could you do that? No. But even if I'm not living on a fixed income if I'm living on a budget that requires a four or five percents distribution from my portfolio because that's what I want. I want to be able to travel. I want to be able to go see the grandkids. I want to go see great grandkids. Who knows whatever it is. I want to do the cruise I want to do that. And those all kind of take money, so I've been told and so the flexibility says don't go see the grandkids for their graduation. Don't help out the family if that's what you were looking to do in the first place. Don't do something with money because you need to be flexible because your portfolio need you right now. No other way around I need my portfolio to do what I needed to do for me. The portfolio should not be looking to me to prop it up by not living my life. Not a good now to good thing. Don't let the market dictate. What you wanna do? We say that all the time. Here's a third approach to reducing. They say sequence of if you're if you're going to insist on taking money money out of a volatile portfolio. They say reduce volatility when it matters most. When it matters most what I'm taking money out of the portfolio missing the point here. A portfolio volatility does not create sequence of returns risk that also doesn't create any return individuals, essentially, should not expect constant spending from volatile portfolio. Those who want upside and thus except volatility should be flexible with their spending. It should make adjustments other approaches reducing downside side risk that is volatility in the bad direction. Could also be considered. For instance, a writing a rising equity glide path in retirement could start with an equity allocation, that's even lower than typically recommended. Well, you know, increases you go along there are there are some school thought professor Plum that that you know, that may be a good way to go anyway. Well, almost by definition, you can have a rising glide path for equities. What does that mean? That means the percentage of your portfolio will increase the percentage of your portfolio allocated to stocks equities will increase as you get older that's from a purely financial standpoint. So when I'm sixty five if my retirement is sixty five that would be the lowest percentage of stocks that I have with my portfolio. But then as I go along seventy seventy five eighty eighty five at eighty five I can actually have a larger percentage of my portfolio in stocks. And in some cases, that it happens on accident because people have money in stocks personal. They don't wanna pay the taxes and they're getting eighty five ninety they say, you know, what I'll just pass these onto the heirs with a step up in basis. And so there as a percentage of stock portfolios becoming larger also because in many cases, what I've seen happen. They spend less money when they're ninety. Then when they did when they were sixty five and so as a portfolio, I was just but healthcare that's another issue. But. Eighty five year old can afford financially. Maybe not mentally, but financially they have more money in stocks than a sixty five year old why because sixty five year old probably has to provide for a thirty plus year time horizon, maybe an eighty five year old doesn't have to provide for thirty plus your time horizon for the most part very few people make it one hundred fifteen a lot of people make it to ninety ninety five hundred fifteen that's usually those French women that live in some. Village somewhere and they've smoked every day of their life and a shot a jacker. But it's one of those were they probably had very little stress throughout their lives. Okay. So that's the that doesn't work. I mean, it can work so fun. You're still taking money out of a volatile portfolio. The final category is to avoid selling it losses. Here's what they say. Manage sequence of return risk by having assets available outside the financial portfolio to draw from after market downturn. Like this. We have a bucket off to the side to draw from in the event the market drops returns on these assets should not be correlated with financial portfolio since the purpose of the buffer assets is to support spending when the portfolio is otherwise down being like a CD or something like that. Well, they said an old strategy is to maintain a separate cash. Reserve which can be a CD I suppose money market for tomorrow's money perhaps within two or three years of retirement expensive with two or three years of retirement expenses separate from the rest of the investment portfolio. Now, they said one disadvantage, here's at the cash. Reserve could have otherwise been invested to seek higher returns. Well, didn't we just talk about the reason why you're doing it? Well, the reason you're doing it is not to achieve higher returns. It's to provide for spending cash win the markets go down, and I did say win not if I just don't know when it's going to happen. Well, see and here here's one thing that I think they sorta get wrong on this over when we come back from the break. We'll tell you what you need to do. But here's where I think where they get kinda got wrong in this. First of all, the only two or three years taking a million dollar portfolio and putting one hundred thousand dollars in safety. So it doesn't go up much. It doesn't go up at all. Because it's earning point that you probably earn close to two percent in that portfolio. So it's going to earn. Close to percents not gonna lose anything. It's slowly ten percent of the portfolio. Even if it were to go up a lot didn't have that. Isn't that big of a drag on the portfolio, given the reason for having it is that if the market goes down, I've got some money to spend. Now, I think one hundred thousand in that particular issue two years two and a half years worth of cash is too light. It's too small while it is. And we'll tell you why. But then the other problem here is they're only talking about spending that cash when the markets are down. Well, I don't necessarily totally disagree with. But you know, reason you don't professor Plum is because value averaging might dictate that you're going to be pairing some off the top, exactly. And you're monitoring your managing your taking charge.
