They decided to cash it in in the twenty twenty Twenty twenty three. Nba draft pick is lottery protected. Twenty twenty four the pick. His top twelve protected. The twenty twenty-five pick is top ten protected and then if they want to wait if you want to wait all the way to twenty twenty six to pick his top aide protected then becomes two second rounders now. Jonathan fagin of the houston chronicle. He reported that westbrook wanted to go elsewhere so we can be himself on the floor man. Exactly what does that mean. what is he talking about. Clarify define a little bit more when he speaks about he wants to quote unquote be- himself. Are we talking about the wessel russell. Westbrook that won the where he averaged a triple double. Is that the himself. He wants to be at so that was income through the door and being that effective. I would like to see the be himself. Russell westbrook be the guy that the second year. When he was with paul george where george with the guy that was getting most of the shadow attempts that i wouldn't say was taking a backseat. But you know. He was starting to give more and more of the spotlight to paul george in terms of the acknowledgement that. Hey you know what. We're going to have the team that we want to have the best team that we can be. you know. i've got to be more than just sharing with paul george to give him a little bit more in terms of responsibility at least on offense with the oklahoma city thunder so with him going from houston with james harden and now moving over to play with bradley beal with the team.

The Crown season 4
"I am now joined by. Amanda dobbins our resident expert. Amanda thanks for joining me again. My pleasure your pleasure to watch these middle. Three episodes of the crown season four absolutely crushing. It this stuff. Is this really good. We're talking today about favorites fagin and taryn knowle's ands basically. It's the episode with all the kids. The episode with the guy breaks into the palace and the episode. Where charles and diana go to australia. And i have to say that i think four. I've seen a few people dating for here and there for some reason. Maybe because it's too too well kind of put too much of a bow on it. I think it's fucking extraordinary. Like if i i thought that favorites was a really like startling achievement in dramatic writing and just in terms of the amount of stuff that they burn through in the way that they bring all these characters. What did you. What did you think of that episode. I agree with you. And i have not seen any criticisms because i don't really consume social media anymore but anyone who thinks it's too neat or they put a bow on it. I guess find another show This is peter. Marin is a playwright. There is a lot of construction and intentional cinematic and exposition all dialogue and set pieces built into this. It's not. it's not that it's obvious but all of it is very crafted. So i agree with you that i thought episode four was tremendous in terms of the amount of like and setup that they managed to convey to you in a very effective way. Because we don't really know anything about two of the four children barely met any of them and has been kind of a side character and so there are four children who get their own scenes and moments and so you have to develop those characters. You have to develop the queen's relationship to all of them. You also have the margaret thatcher thematic connection of the of the children. And you're drying out a little bit about margaret thatcher's relationship to women as well which is an important larger thematic episode. And also you've got the falklands war. I mean it's and they do it definitely and i thought about something you say a lot. Which is the crown doesn't like doesn't waste a moment. They just pick the scenes they pick the lines. And you know everything you need to know. That is so hard and they nail it. I mean they do a lot of stuff that i think other shows would probably shy away from because it would feel too like they were showing you too many of their cards so i kept thinking about the scene between elizabeth and an you know they go riding out. This is the thing that they sort of both share this love of horses even though and is obviously phillips favorite. And that's like in the way that that gets conveyed in the beginning and their conversations heartbreaking you know like their conversation is legitimately breaking and i think you could look at what an says. She's like. I used to enjoy being the difficult on and scaring people and now i don't feel like have any control over that anymore and you could be like well like you might go your entire life and never have that level of self awareness. You know you may have to go through thirty years of therapy to find that out about yourself and this young woman just like sort of pops out off when confronted by her mother on iran day. But it's beautiful writing. It's just it's just like amazing writing. And i thought the performances specifically in that scene mostly because the three sons come off as absolute troll lords in this episode mean. Yeah but the scene in particular was was quite lovely thought. Listen i think that there are levels of emotional breakthrough and clarity in this. Show that it's never happened in real life and certainly have never happened in the uk and to anyone who is absolutely senior no country just a lot of time talking about salads in england too early because they get a lot of salad industry and how to their salads or just blue cheese and bacon their emotional relationships are blue cheese and bacon. Do they are not. They're not doing the the smart greens. Now i mean it's it's a tv show and we are projecting emotions and trying to figure out how these people felt about the facts that we know are true. That's what we think is so interesting about episode for which made me reflect a little bit of on the queen character in this season and an interesting thing is happening. We talked a little bit about this on the last episode. Where libya coleman is kind of popping out a little bit and coleman is one of the great actresses of time and also i find her personally hilarious so i think that that's great but i see moments where it nothing is on the page and it's just olivia colman giving it that sense of humor giving it that timing Or maybe even the character is being a little bit written to her strengths and that is also a little bit because the queen is not. i mean. she's not a side character but the way they're telling the story is about all of the other people and events who are kind of crowding into that character's life and how she's bouncing all of it but episode four is just it's about the queen and all of their writing it's character development that is in line with the past three seasons that we've seen and it's pretty extraordinary and i think libya coleman also does like a great job with the actual written script and the character and the reacting to like the horror show of her children. I mean they all are. Do you have a favorite of the four. Who is your favorite on the shore in real life. No on the show. I don't really i. It's shifted i think blassie's and it would have been charles and yeah and this season it's probably end. Although let me get to the end of it. I mean it's obviously not editor andrew. So yeah. I wanted to just quickly before we get into edward andrew charles. A little bit ask you you start this episode up. Did you expect the wedding. No if only because number one. I read some spoilers about how they don't show the wedding but i do also think in their when charles and diana yes yes. The most watched royal wedding. I think of all time. I i don't. I should have gotten this statistics. It was close to a billion people. Watch it. I mean that was everywhere and people taped it and watched it over and over again rate including me who. Dvr it when bbc america riera it before the wedding harry and meghan and it was part of their like twelve hour block of programming. I watched all of it i. It's pretty boring. They didn't really have their production values in one thousand nine hundred one that we expect from royal wedding now anyway but no. There was sort of finality to episode three and there was something intentional about the way they showed their rehearsal and kind of the real behind the scenes emotions where i was like. Okay this is an interesting choice and like this is what we're going to get and also i've seen it before was do because like they wouldn't be a lot of opportunity for people to be talking during that so unless there would be some fagin like wrinkle history that they wanted to explore not really sure what they would do their right. I mean it happened at such a scale that even it would defy the crown's siegi budget. I will say. I was surprised that diana disappeared for new episodes. We'll get episode five. But she is very briefly shown and she is heavily pregnant when she shown episode four. And she just won't come out of the room and in one way. That's really all you need to know. About how their marriage is going and how everything is you know how everything is is shaken out but on the other hand i was like uh this is a choice. Diana pretty popular. Yeah yeah no. I thought that the dow is interesting. Also the suggestion. That charles is starting to become under the influence of these gurus and like self help nutritionist. Which i didn't. I didn't know that about him. Oh yeah the the lawrence vander past reference. I only know about this from the tina brown book. But apparently he brought those books on their honeymoon and then tried to get diana who was twenty at the time of their wedding to read the books and discuss them over for dinner on their honeymoon. So that's how that went
The Interior World
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe. McCormick, and today we're going to be taking a look at interior space. Get Era Two thousand twenty brings to mind the old curse. May You live in interesting times and one of the factors here has, of course, been the corona virus cove in nineteen pandemic and in an effort to fight the spread of the illness, save lives and prevent overwhelming are hospitals. We've made a lot of changes to our lives and these range from the simple such as just wearing a mask when you're out in public and you can't so full. Distance from people to the harder choices about employment, and in life choices, we've all been social distancing and stay at home orders teleworking in quarantine have meant that we've all been spending a lot more time at home. Now depending on your home, this could mean a lot of things, but we want to explore what this means from a biological standpoint for the most part here. Now, make no mistake spending more time at home has absolutely been the right move. But just as it's forced you to focus more on, say that weird stain on your ceiling we wanted to focus on the other often unseen aspects of life in home right much the same way that being say on a Spanish galleon out in the middle of the ocean might have made you pay much more attention to the biology and behavior of of ship rats than you ever would have otherwise I. Think being at home more and more is forcing all of us to Turner is and maybe our microscopes and magnifying glasses to the corners and the cornices and the showerheads and the drain traps and all of the wonderful places in our house where life dwells. we're going to really get into the difference really between the natural world outside of our homes in the unnatural world inside and getting into some ideas about how how we could perhaps enable our interior world to be a little more on the natural side of things. But. Before we get into all that, I wanted to take a moment here to discuss the history of houses in general, you know just to get into the concept of what a house is. Our first and most important interior artificial environment. So you can certainly look at a home as an artificial cave to a certain extent indeed, we have lots of early evidence that early hominids sought out shelter in caves in the same way that many other animals do these can shelter one against the elements and against predators and as recently as one hundred, thirty thousand years ago cave-dwellers were already augmenting these natural interior environments with things like rough stone walls using timbers so So you know, even one, hundred, thirty, thousand years ago we were taking naturally occurring interior spaces and. A little less natural. And of course, on top of just the shelter caves can provide. It also seems that caves had a strong sacred meaning too many of these prehistoric peoples those might be important, but ultimately, proximity to water is far more important thus as Kate Spin Brian fagin point out in. In the section of the seventy grade inventions of the ancient world about homes, most early hominids lived out in the open near streams and lakes built temporary structures, and most of this has been lost a time. But some of the earliest evidence of potential structures for homes goes back a one point seven, two point seven, million years ago with Homo Erectus sites in southern Africa, and these were potentially contemporary with the domestication of fire. The have been temporary tents, but they still would have been artificial interior environments. Now, more secure evidence comes from the Ukraine roughly forty four thousand years ago the the mammoth bone structures from mullet ova with recently see us on the show actually yeah we did talknet these that would have been structures in one of the northernmost habitable regions of the earth the time because this was during a time of glacial. Advance where the polar ice caps from the north were coming deep down into Europe and Asia, and and so this would have been far far north way up among the ice and for some reason, humans were building these structures out of the bones of mammoth and we don't know that there are still things. We don't know about those structures like how how consistently they were inhabited and for how long and so forth. Right? Now beyond this, the history of human homes is is largely dictated by local resources and local climate. Long process of trial and error ends up leading to the development of regional and cultural building forums construction methods. Before nine thousand B C e we see evidence of clay houses and Palestine what is today Palestine and before seven thousand BC we see rectangular dwellings in Anatolia. But but a home is far more than just a shelter. As the authors here point out houses became key to social structure as well.
Here's Who Really Benefits From The Dominance Of The U.S. Dollar
"So Tracy. I hate to say that brought this whole crisis. There has been sort of one John of article or one genre of discussion. And I've never really been comfortable with. And that is people making really big picture forecasts or statements about sort of the future of the world. I Yeah I mean it feels like a little bit early to be jumping to discussing the second order effects right like there's so much to talk about right now as these things are actually unfolded. Yeah exactly and of course one of the big questions that's out there and that everyone wants you on and I'm GonNa give it to and I've written about it and I've talked about. It is what happens was sort of globalisation. What happens with future of the dollar the US's Preeminent role in the global financial system? We sort of talked about it a little bit with Adam to talk about it with other Other people as well and it's of course incredibly intriguing to discuss we still We just don't know anything. Yeah I think that's true and it definitely falls into one of those sort of big picture. Things that people are talking about at the moment. And it's something that we've sort of discussed on various episodes before right. Dollar dominance has definitely been a theme for the past year or so on our show. You little skeptical when I was like all. I don't think we should have these big picture. Future conversations. You seem a little skeptical of my now. I get it I mean. I don't think anyone really knows at the moment so a lot of it is speculation but also markets are always looking so I kind of get why people are naturally template to be looking at the big picture topics true. Yeah I guess you'd have to do so anyway. We're not going to make a big. We're not trying to make a big forecast here today. But as we talk about globalization as we talk about the dollar I do think it is useful to at least understand how it got to the current system what the current setup is. And what's actually yeah? Basically understand the the current world order and how we got her. Yeah I think that's a great idea and the dollar is so much a heart of the global financial system that we sort of take for granted. But it's definitely worthwhile to step back for a second and things like all. How did we get into a position? Where emerging markets are all like rushing to issue billions of dollars worth of dollar denominated debt? How did we get to a position? Where all of trade finances basically denominated in dollars. Why has that happened right exactly right and you know. There's a lot of misconceptions about all of this. How TRADE WORKS. Who benefits from the strong dollar or who benefits from the dollar permanent role we often hear of. Us ability to issue dollars as a privilege. But it's not. It's not really that a clear. We talked about this a little bit recently on an episode with met climb but the sort of the preference of different actors within the global economy regarding current arrangement is not as as clean as one might one might right and there is an argument that POPs up every once in a while but having the dollar so enmeshed in the financial system can actually be a negative for the US. And we've seen that crop recently with you know people talk about the Fed being the world's central banker does that sort of constrain. What it can do at times like this even before then so yeah definitely worth talking up okay. So today we are going to talk about that and we have a recent get. We actually talked about talk with him. Several weeks ago about Municipal debt when he is the CO author of a recent essay titled the Class Politics of the dollar system for the website. Phenomenal world is Yaacov Fagin. He's the associate director of the future. Capitalism program at the Berggruen Institute. And we're GONNA talk about how we got to this a the state how the dollar got to the state who really benefits from it. Who gets hurt from it and what it really means to preserve it so knockoff. Thank you very much for joining us. I should note that your co author. Dominick make it unfortunately today by glad we have you. What are you? Start by telling us what you The big picture of what your goal was with his essay. The class all its dollar system in sort of this essay was kind of a really long time coming And I really the person the two peop- The three people. I should probably think the most for kind of this happened are dominic who kind of got us to. Right. It's And the James Institute obviously for publishing yet but there's also someone else in the background of this essay. Is Nils Gilman? Who is my boss at the Berggruen Institute in over the years I've worked with him. We've had this very long conversation about we know. Why does the world use the dollar? And why is it a problem and he you know he's not specialist in international finance and this stuff is really technical and I spent like quite a long time kind of in a conversation with him like kind of pouring this stuff out right eventually told me you need to write this essay up right. You need to write an essay that just gives a literature review essentially of this kind of point of view of what the dollar system is politically. And why it's not necessarily you know very clear cut America versus the world story and so eventually this got written up right and that's the kind of story we're trying to tell is. It's very hard to pin down a national interest in the world that's hybrid as Perry Languid. Say Right it's a world in which there is a private system that's yearly inter mediating on an international level an a national in the system in which nations are essentially creating public goods called units of account right and that this international system mediates this hierarchy is of these units of account just as much as national power dynamics do so lucas through useless. Then talk about. The political system are around the dollar. What is that exactly? So argument is that it's actually class. Right is almost a or at least like social stratification as a kind of Meta politics right that the dollar is actually pretty good for a large cross section of people no matter what their position in the global value chain or where they're located and it's pretty bad for another other across sections again without considering international boundaries. That they are. It's pretty bad for a lot of people no matter where they're located or what part of the global value chain there
"We've got a great show for you today. A little bit of a slow week but that just means we have more time for your emails. So got lots of knows from you guys this week. Why is that funny?

There's not as much video game news Happening this week. Everyone's taking a ticket the Memorial Day week long weekend off. I Guess Fran but let's begin with what playing And I am in chapter twelve of final fantasy seven remake upscale enjoying it still enjoying it ten still plan to keep playing it from what I played so far. You know I'm not having finished the game But I am over halfway through from what I played so far Tom Scored Eight. Seems about right to me. That's the game mandate there. They gotTA stop well. I don't want to split anything but Back in sector seven and trying to stop a disaster from happening climbing stem Damon. What did you think of wall market in that whole section was so? That's stuff I wanted to bring that up because you said that was the best part of the game. Yeah I thought and I thought it was. You know cool but it didn't really stick out to when I got there I wasn't like Oh my God Justin was right. This is amazing curious about that too. Did you guys like the arena? Or what was it about that? Well it's an iconic part of the original game. I think people are really excited to see remade and it's sort of the game at its silliest you know with all the climax of how that section of the game ends and it's over the top and I think mark itself is just very atmospheric and I love how it's all just twisting alleys and like you know you're it's deliberately designed confuse you and make you lost and all the back alleys and I just I really really loved it. And it was like exactly what littler me pictured in my mind when I play the original game that sort of blown up into HD. And I just thought they really really good job recreating that atmosphere mcgahn felt like they made some of the cyclists harder to actually navigate in that area. Like a the in the slums. When you're I like China chase down cats kids and whatnot which seems to be a recurring theme. They actually highlighted on your map. They show you like you. I have where you're supposed to go but in Walmart it's totally different. You have to Kinda contractually go through stuff slash look up guides which I may have done agenda cough. I come as good guides. Good game. Yeah I guess it was cool and I do like how At first he is. You feel like you're getting lost within wall market but then by the time you leave. I feel like I know my way around. I can get where I want to go. I guess I just have so little memory of playing the original fantasy seven that I wasn't even like waiting for that moment to come up. You know they're all very short segments in the original Sam where you. I haven't played since we last talked fourteen or something. So you're catching up to me now. I regret fagin catch up. Yeah just waiting for you. Buddy recreate the entirety. Freegold watch and animal crossing cool. What how many do you have in there about sixty three? Wow each like ten thousand bells.

I was pretty impressed with the outcome. If you go to free. Gold watches INSTAGRAM. They put up a video for their fortieth anniversary. It looks really good. I feel like sixty.

Oh I'm sorry I followed. What looks like merchantmen. That explains it. Today is the great court market. You should visit after you meet with the Lord. I'll have to do that but next time. Do get an escort before you start wandering off. There's no need to follow Murchison. Of course the guard leads me. To cassandra where I get to have the honor of turning her down personally. She is quite displeased with me. I am very pleased with me. I do my best to make my lecture long enough for Australia and our team to get away while I'm at it. I sneak.

Abortion restrictions carry political risk for Republicans in 2020
"When Alabama state Senate passed the most restrictive abortion Bill in the country. It was Thursday. When governor Kay Ivey signed, it the reaction was fierce on Friday on Saturday. All human life is precious. I'm outrage I'm scared through all this President Trump was silent until yesterday in a series of tweets, the president calling himself strongly, pro-life yet, separating himself from those laws that make no exception for rape, or incest, and also mentioning the twenty twenty election at the same time. And if you thought this issue had run out of fuel, this is what we could see later today in a few hours, the supreme court could say, whether it's taken up one of several crucial abortion cases, these petitions to the court come from Louisiana and Texas and Mississippi this past Friday, the justices discussed in Indiana law. That would make it harder to abort a fetus based on potential disability. Ben later today thousand miles away in Missouri at the state house protesters. Effected to gather were governor Mike Parsons, stands poised to sign a Bill that would outlaw abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy. Many women do not know they're pregnant by then, and that's why President Trump's four day silence was so notable because as the temperature has risen outside of Washington is put Republicans and the president himself in an awkward position. We've got ABC's deputy political director, maryalice parks, along with GOP strategist, and ABC news, contributor, Sara Fagan, and maryalice. Let's start with you. As we look across the country this morning. What are the politics of abortion for President Trump and the GOP? There's a reason that it wasn't just President Trump. But actually number of leading Republicans that said they thought that this abortion law passed Alabama went too far even for them. Alabama just passed restrictive abortion law in the country. It goes further than I believe, yes, I believe there's been kind of a conventional wisdom across the country that even really conservative pro-life laws would largely include exceptions notable exceptions rape, incest, or life of the mother, there was exceptions. That's exactly what Republicans have voted on in this house. That's what our platform, says, and this one in Alabama at notably did not. And I think it's worth, I remember that President Trump already has a woman problem, and this might exacerbate that, you know, the last time that ABC polled on this issue nearly two-thirds of Americans and seventy percent of women said that they wanted a women's ability to get an abortion to be about the same or easier than it is now. And then you add on top of that the fact that the president's numbers, women have just largely cratered since election day in two thousand sixteen and you could see a moment leading up to twenty twenty where women just continued to rally behind Democrats. And feel even more motivated to do so because of this extreme push in the Republican party once Sarah Fagin, where does this put the Republican party going into an election year? The there is a challenge for Republicans when they don't message human life properly, and I think in some of the cases, particularly in this situation in Alabama, the narrative has gotten out a little ahead, a one point, had the impression that women were criminalized that's actually not true. It's doctors. I mean, that's what was being reported because that's sort of thing got out ahead of itself. If patients, not criminalised under this law, though, say or if they wanted to get an abortion, they couldn't get one legally, you'd think they'd feel penalized at least but to Marietta's point about numbers. I mean what are GOP strategist telling their candidates running for reelection. Well, first of all, I think the, the most important thing is to be authentic be who you are and, and being pro-life as a tenant of the conservative movement, is tentative, many Republicans and people should be proud to be pro-life but you've got. Plane it. And, you know, when you when you ask people, whether their pro-life pro-choice a slight majority will save their pro choice when you talk about the many issues that surround the development of human life. Whether it's, you know, a when a when a child feels pain, when a heartbeat is noticeable when a child could live outside the womb, all of these issues elicit a very much shades of gray in the mind of the public short conversations around some views on life on choice, you know, rarely and in a way that is positive for Republicans. This is a conversation that takes a lot of explaining maryalice is that something Republicans want to spend their time explaining is that Democrats. I mean what side would rather seize on this in twenty twenty right now? Democrats seem to think that this might be more of a rallying cry for them. There is an all out, assault and attack by the Republican party across this nation to undermine womens bay. Basic reproductive rights, basic civil rights, but I think that you're right. You're getting on something bigger, which is that Republicans were largely hoping to not run on social and cultural issues. Also speak about the economy, speak about the economy. But sometimes it's not as exciting to talk about the economy, right? They want to tout the strong economy. The jobs numbers we've seen mainstream. Republicans even kind of shiver when that seems like the president is doubling down on the immigration issue. We all know what's happening. It's all about rubbing up the base using fear to stimulate people coming out at the poll. They would like to make this much more about trade and jobs and income and taxes sort of the Republican strongholds where you're the Republican strategist you've got the stake in miss. Does what you're seeing right now serve the interest of the party in a my own view is just watching the debate unfold. Fold and Alabama and Missouri as while in many ways, you know, I personally a pro-lifer applaud these things, I, I think, pull move it was had made great strides. And this probably from a debate of took them backwards. It's what you said it was charged on both sides. We will see both sides in the spotlight today. And of course going forward. Sarah Fagin, maryalice parks. Thank you both.

The second item of white America is not moving toward renewable energy is basically most of your your your utility companies here in the United States, they're mostly capitalist. And they're there to make a profit. And so they think they're scared to death of solar energy because that's going to decrease their profits tremendously. And there isn't that incentive there, they they would much rather have in other words, basically solar energy wind energy and whatnot. Decentralize the power grid and the ownership and the prophets and the the the models utilities us right now is from the nineteen thirties where the power system is very centralized, and they control it, and they don't wanna lose that control. And the third item of why did America is not moving towards renewables. Is because I was reading article on white people were putting up solar panels, and basically, they had certain groups, and in particular, I read this article that the coke brothers in particular. We're trying to devise ways to discourage people from using solar energy. So what they did was they went around to the utility companies and say, this is how you screw up this idea. So people won't use solar. You basically put a lot of charges and peas and bureaucracy, and basically it'll be so complex, and it'll be so cost you won't be cost effective and people will just say, oh just not worth it and give up, and I don't know, which is they did this too.

But yeah, it's hard to separate the politics from it too. But a lot of it. I know like like Mr. Dyson said he's not afraid of losing his job. And I know a lot of that is funded from the government. And a lot of those guys have to be careful what they come up with with results because of the funding from the government in the in the grants, and that's a big part of it. And also, the what the guy said about the renewable energy or not we're not very yet on technology because if you look at the population of some of these countries that are supporting themselves with some of that, I mean eighteen million people is a population of Chile. That's that's half the population of California, there's not enough so fits area to support even a quarter of the country with solar energy. And that the fact and we're not there. Where yet with the technology even try that. And this the thing about the CO two is like what John Dyson said, it there has never been greener than it is now and the replacing trees more than the cutting down trees, there's more trees growing planted than there ever was compared to the trees were cut down. And and then the other thing is you can't take water vapor out of the equation because water vapor contributes up to eighty five or ninety percent of the warming part of the climate. And that's where you get into the into the science, and it affects the climate more than this. He'll to you'll Q is only about thirty percent of the climate warming effect and water vapor is up to ninety percent. So you can't take. That out of the question. So it's it's ridiculous. Bottom line. You're saying what Mark. Well, I think I like John Dyson says I think people contribute a little bit to the climate change. But it's not enough to make a big difference. And it's and we still don't know if it's really a negative effect because the trees and everything needs the O two it makes everything green. And so far. I don't see anything negative and prediction about us being underwater. Well, we're I'm not underwater yet now is twenty years ago. So I I think it's kind of a hoax, and it's I think it's kind of a it's a theory. But that's all it is. And you can't really go on the models the model they have for the for the climate change is ridiculous. You can't you can't base it on the model's almost underwater in Saint Louis, though. It's been raining like crazy. But Brian do you want to react to any of that? That's classic. He's still in classic climate change denial. I'll give I disagree with them. And I'd just like believe it like that. Okay. Fair enough. I mean, do you debate at all no, not if I can help it. Okay. Almost entirely to beating with people who have genders. No, nobody wins though on either side. No thing about a lot of this is if you believe that climate change is not is it was out of natural forces and the humans have nothing to do with it. Nothing. Any debater was going to say, it's gonna change your mind because you believe that it's rather like a religious faith is the human involvement called pollution or is that something else? Pollution is part of it was one of the contributing causes and you can depend define pollution. True. Let's go to port Charlotte, Florida. Hi, peter. Go ahead, sir. Hi too quick question. Surprised to learn that the Chinese better for the environment than America would information. We have the support that.

He has his net flicks. So, but we don't have it ourselves. Oh. Is that the end of that? Okay. Who says to what you were watching on Netflix, Amazon prime motivator watched the great British baking show, you watch that do watch. My wife's are all the box. That's sports.

I'm surprised she's pretty bright with all he was out shoveling this morning. Sure bad. We had to move the clocks forward. So if I'm going to work at six you gotta get out about quarter to six to shovel their clocks ahead, right? Yeah. The clocks ahead. That's good. That's the way it should be Dennis. Yeah. Right. Okay. So what happened on Wall Street? And if you look at the markets every day the market was down. If you look at the Dow was down every day of the week. The NASDAQ was down every day s and p Russell two thousand total marketing next down every day of the week shooting. And even on Tuesday. The Dow was down thirteen points, the total US total market was down forty four points to Russell two thousand one thousand seven and my point is is that it's just truly an indication of profit taking when the market was down a lot. You would expect all the major indices to be done a lot. But even when the market was down, you know. To to a minor extended. Dow was down a point oh five percent on Tuesday, all the major indices were down. So it's kind of a sign that was more profit taking than anything else. And after you know, eight or nine or ten or whatever number of weeks. In a row that the SNP up. It's not surprising that the market pulled back a little bit. At most major indices were down a couple of percents. Dow was down two point two percent. The s&p dumb. You know about the same. We really took it on the chin was the Russell two thousand which is the second third thousand largest stocks domiciled America was down about four percent. But still around thirteen percent year to date and all the major indices a more than nine percent year to date. So at this point in time, you know, I would consider profit taking more than anything else. Certainly the labor market was weak on Friday nonfarm payrolls, grew by about twenty thousand one hundred eighty thousand were expected three month average is still pretty strong. I think a lot of that has to do with the weather and be the government shutdown which kind of skews the numbers a little bit. But despite that the Dow closed down only twenty three points on Friday after being down quite a bit more than that down. You know, one hundred eighty or so so I. I would I would think that that that use these pullbacks, and I would I consider this a viable pullback with the market only lost two percent for the week. Dow down about five percent from its record high. But I would use any substantial back to your securities at your, you know, your equity equity side of your portfolio. I think on the flip side, or what what I saw this week where we saw this week that does bear. Watching yet. Treasury yields come down precipitously the two year treasury went from two point five five percent. Two point four five ten tenure from two point seven six to two point six two. That's a pretty major move. If you look at the ten year moving fourteen basis points are point one four percent. You know? That's that's, you know, five percent move to to the downside. So that bears watching other than that. You know, the market's not surprised we had a great run. I I think the other thing. However, I think other thing is we have ninety clips rolled high setback in you know. The latter part of September really October for the Dow's concerned. So you'd you'd like to see the market I drew its all time high and yet quite often when you have such a the move from the bottom that we've had since Christmas Eve or Christmas Eve low. I mean, it's not surprising that we have you know, a down week or down a little bit of a down. Stretched digest two games that we've had. All right. Well, listen, can you can you stay with us from it'll take a break. Yeah. Definitely. He'll go away. Dennis. No, stay right there.

"So I think that might be Cohen will only be ineffective witness to the extent he's independently corroborated either by other testimony, meaning verbal testimony or by documents or both because he's got an awful history. Now that doesn't mean that everything he says is ally. But what it does mean is that you have to corroborate him. And I think any any prosecutor at certainly someone as careful as skilled and as objective. As Bob Muller would never use someone as Michael like Michael Cohen unless he could crop rate them. And I think in general the same thing about the folks at the southern district, and she this this is the problem here. Remember, what all the spin was on bubbler going back only two weeks ago? We don't have to go that far back Democrats were saying that in the Manafort situation and the Coen situation in the Roger stone's situation that all of Bob molars allegations have multiple corroborating witnesses. All of Bob Mueller's charges or not based on one person. But on three four or five people that Cohen himself by himself as unreliable Cohen by himself could easily be dismissed as liar saying with Roger stone, Roger stolen could be dismissed buzz Aligarh Jerome Corsi, whoever. But there are multiple people who can paint the picture multiple people filling in the billings, multiple people back in each other up through separate independent investigations. So to have built that entire case into trotted out. Michael Cohen last week for Democrats to now be saying, hey, we gotta do this ourselves. Pretty big indicator.

I mean, that's I think it makes a lot of sensible financially, especially if they can get the Grizz to shake back night. Get join green and temple and cut money for next year. While also getting guys who can contribute this year, you'll greens not an amazing fit. You know, I think he's declined a little bit athletically. He struggled to stay healthy with a lot of lower body injuries in his three point shooting. He's shot the ball well in individuals seasons at ties with three, but he's not a high volume guy. Maybe that's something that they could really help, you know, having him in jail. It's on the same team. Again, you NS really hasn't been able to shoot the three. There's a hope that he could be more projectable from three. So, you know, maybe there's a reason why green doesn't shoot that many even though he shoots a an okay presentative sometimes up. But no, I mean, I think there might be targets out there. You know, we mentioned miratec who would fit better. I like him a lot better than green. But the rock is to get better on defense. They need more toughness. Green can provide some athleticism forum some force and would be a nice fit in they're switching system. So I think he he makes a lot of censor- to me.

You know, do they wanna take that extra salary will see here at one of their offers out there for those guys. Yeah. I'm not the biggest tomato green fan. I mean when his shot is going, it's nice. But it it. It's more of a you know, to me, I I've never really trusted his jump shot. Just personally, and he's had a couple of a couple of nights years as you said we can move onto question from will how do the rockets address Chris Paul's decline? In future years. It is very very difficult because Houston does not have a great asset base. Like, this is one of the differences. I mean, there are many between them and would say the Boston Celtics like Boston has all these other things that they can do they can throw at the wall. And maybe it's throw amended entity straight or something else Houston, they have their own picks, which aren't super valuable because they're very good team. And they're young talent development hasn't really borne much fruit. I mean, Hartenstein not really inspiring much. Gary Clark has a partial guarantee for next year. Go cheat. Joe she's already gone.

I know you guys have been Big Apple fans. Are you still hot on? Yeah. We are for a number of reasons. One is the amount of cash they have on hand. The second reason is I think you had expect almost like PC sales. If you're a member of fifteen or twenty years ago PC sales peaked and the average selling price of personal computers went down. I think you're saying the same thing with foams. I two billion people in the world have have cellular phones. And I think that's peaking. However. And also the average selling price went out on our apple their ecosystem is just getting stronger and stronger can think of migration from being a hardware company to more of a.

Citigroup's out with a report basically saying that they're looking for games this year. Lower valuations as a result of what's happened to pass you months working in their favor, and what the strategists Andrew how called a reasonably solid economic outlook. But yeah, there are some qualifiers in the mix too. And it's understandable. Because if you look the last ten years for the MSCI frontier markets index. Yeah. Let's do it. Jason. Well, the way it's described in my little explanation that goes with the chart lost decade. Now, it's it's remarkable compared to emerging markets or developed markets when you look at the world index just to give you the numbers the frontier index up just nine and a half percent from two thousand nine through twenty eighteen over that same time frame. The MCI emerging markets index up seventy percent the world tracking developed markets up one hundred and twelve percent incredible. The difference. Yeah. What happened really the frontier markets? There were popular in the mid two thousand then you had the bear market two thousand seven to two thousand nine they fell along with emerging markets and never really recovered from that. So we'll see if this year brings better fortunes for these frontier markets, go out of the more, folks. So many Email get you the chart goes with it. It and everything I do going forward. The Email address is dwilson at Bloomberg dot net. That's dwilson Bloomberg dot net. Stables and thank you so much. All right. So let's move to a story that Caroline. I both loved is one of the ones that we need right off the bat, and we came in this morning. We definitely wanted to talk about the headline Wall Street's bullish CEOs face reckoning. Oh, it's just love the words reckoning after stock selloff Lebanon. Win is here with us reporter for Bloomberg. She wrote this piece. Alright went on to what's going on. These guys have been talking it up. They have been talking it up. And I think investors are not buying it. Obviously investors are selling it. In fact, so we had a huge slump, obviously, the financial stocks in December. As well as the entire quarter. So as we head into earning season, it's really going to be difficult for these CEO's to be so bullish on the economy without I think acknowledging that we have a lot of concerns about growth, and what's going to happen the economy, but it's crucial. We always talk about an that ain't order for us to have kind of a healthier market. We need to hear from the banks and the Bank CEO's saying, hey, folks, I'm seeing loan growth. I'm seeing this. I mean, we could in terms of the equity markets thinking, we could see a big of a bit of a boost to the upside if we get a lot of positive words and results from these guys. Yes. Or we could see a lot of downside the other way around. So what Mike mayo from Wells Fargo was telling me, which I think is pretty smart is that there's a negative feedback loop that could potentially happen. Because if the CEO's don't talk about the risk of recession, if they don't talk about these potential storm clouds in what investors are really worried about right? They look tone-deaf. They have to address it. They have to address it. But if they do address it could that potentially lead to sell fulfilling cycle of negative sentiment. That's been. Really hitting the shares. Well, and as you point out in your story, there is some optimism out there from no less than Warren Buffett. This star air this stat really caught me off guard more than thirteen billion dollars. He piled into in terms of financial sucks in the third quarter. That's amazing. That's right. It's a huge bet on banks and the biggest banks as well. So it'd be interesting to see whether his vote of confidence in the banks has been backed up. I also am curious because we kept talking about in terms of a fed interest rates in the yield curve that we said, you know, all it's going to be a better and better environment from the banks. But we haven't really seen that play out. Have. We know the flattening at the flat yield curve has really hurt the bank's in terms of their ability to make money on higher interest rates. And so that is something that a lot of the analysts are saying is still putting earnings under- pressure going forward. I think it'll be interesting too. Because I feel like from the Wall Street strategists, we've heard different things about people, you know, risk off trades and people piling more into cash assets. And another saying this is a great buying opportunity. Yes. And december. Don't forget all that volatility that happened in markets was in December. So a lot of the clients of banks stayed on the sidelines because they didn't want to risk losing the money that they've made for the rest of the year. Yeah. It's a great piece on win finance reporter for Bloomberg here with us in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studio checkout her story on the visited. I'm very much looking forward to the analysis. You're listening to Bloomberg BusinessWeek. I'm Carol Massar along with Jason Kelly. Let's get a check on world and national news headlines.
Could We Build A Real Gundam?
"Hello earth. Actually. Hello universe. Yeah. We are here to tell you that. In addition to Tuesdays and Thursdays when you can get your regular stuff. You should know episodes. Just as you always have the last ten thousand years await tenure seniors. We're now adding a whole new episode of a spin off show. That's really the same show. It's just a shorter episode. It's called short stuff. Yeah. We said, hey, sometimes we have topics that maybe aren't robust enough to fill out a full forty five minutes stuff. You shouldn't episode though. We don't want to shortchange these topics these people, and so let's just make them short. Get over here. Short stuff and Trump in our feet, right? Exactly. It's kind of like the Roper to our three's company. Yeah. Or it's kinda like after mash to mash exactly, although it's like neither one of those. We're regular links. This is shorter everybody. Yep. So you can go to apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Or just look for it in your feet every Wednesday from your friends. Josh chuck. Jerry at stuff, you should know shorter is sometimes better. Welcome to bring stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff on Lauren vocal bomb. And if science fiction has taught us anything it's that giant piloted robotic humanoids will eventually be essential to the protection of everything we hold dear invading Taiji from another dimension, sending the acres rubies from planet, doomed better assemble voltron, and as James Cameron's aliens, toughtested nine hundred eighty six even a non-combat next suit can make all the difference against an extraterrestrial threat. Another influential example is our x seventy eight dash to Gundem the titular piloted giant robot entered the world in nineteen seventy nine as part of Yoshiyuki Tomino mobile suit Gundem franchise, which remains popular today. But could we build our own Gundem's? The simple answer is. Yes. In fact, scientists have been tackling various aspects of the technology since at least the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries during that time both Russian and American inventors explored the possibility of mechanically enhanced excess skeletons to eight humans in various. Physical movements since that time we've continued to see X skeleton advancements aimed at injury rehabilitation space travel industrial labor, and yes, even military combat and okay power armor is nice and all, but it's hardly a giant robot that stomps around and punches monsters in the face. What about true towering meccas? Well, the answer here is also a yes. Within the field of robotics. We've seen tremendous achievements in the creation of remote control autonomous and semi autonomous machines today. Military drones haunt the skies over various global combat zones and space exploration probes have delivered wheeled Rovers to other worlds, we've even given our wheeled robots arms for tasks from bomb dispersal to Martian soil, sampling and deep sea exploration. But none of these mechanical minions boasts legs, even the humanoid robot developed by Nasr's Lyndon, B Johnson space center didn't acquire climbing legs until its second iteration for proper Gundem's. One day walked the planet will need proper robot legs and this to his featured into the work of various robotics programs. The most famous of these is Boston dynamics military funded Walker programs such as big dog and cheetah and not just because they inspired the killer robots in the black mirror episode metalhead because while aerial and nautical robots can get by just fine without a leg to stand on terrestrial, robots are a different matter. A wheels are great on the road and unobstructed landscapes but legs provide the most versatility for diverse. Environments true. We like structures only rarely occur in biology such as the bacterial Jehlum a structure found in such species as the bacterium e coli legs on the other hand are natural selections primary solution to terrestrial transportation. So it makes sense to copy evolution in this regard. And biomedical engineers have looked to all manner of leg arrangements for inspiration from humans to millipedes. But here's the catch led to me. Movement requires a great deal of programming complexity and power it made feel easy for most of us. But our minds and bodies are highly evolved for the task even fully piloted Gunda say one where it's movements are mapped on those of the pilot would require a tremendous amount of biometric engineering and semi autonomous units would require the dexterity and spatial awareness to avoid the pitfalls of for example, the ED two oh nine in RoboCop which stomped around on two feet, but was incapable of navigating stairs. But the mecca dream is strong while various robotics companies continue to develop the necessary technology. Fi fans also go at it alone. Functional mecca suits have strolled the Playa at burning man and paraded at various conventions and Japanese engineer Masaaki Nagumo built a working life size model of a gun Gundem in two thousand eighteen the mecca dubbed L W Mona no FU stands twenty eight feet tall. That's about eight point five meters and weighs seven point seven tons or about. Seven metric tons. It's too. Big to leave the factory space that it calls home. But Ngubane rinse it and other meccas out for a little under a thousand bucks an hour. It's not protecting the world from alien attacks. But it's quite a hit for kids birthday parties. Though, one note here if alliens or giant monsters do attack well meccas might not be the best option. Anyway, as was pointed out in the magazine, popular mechanics, the acres from the Pacific rim films are entirely outclassed by existing aerial bombers and attack helicopters.

Welcome to bring stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff. I'm more in vocal bomb, and you've likely heard of Palio diet, the trendy regimens name is short for paleolithic and supposedly mimics the nutrition of ancient humans who lived about ten thousand years ago, cave, people eight meats, seafoods nuts and a few fruits and vegetables. Oh, and one other food source that doesn't show up on today's protein focused food, blogs other people archaeologists in western Europe have evidence that the precursors to modern humans eight their neighbors during the paleo ethic era. Most experts though have debated whether cannibalism was essential for the survival of these hominids, or whether it was part of ritualistic ceremonies to be classified as nutritional cannibalism, the people that paleolithic clans eight needed to be well nutritious. So just how many calories are in thi- or an ear. Archaeologist James Cole of the university of Brighton in England decided to find out Bing of the diagrams of cattle and pigs that illustrate. Different cuts of meat Cole mapped out the human body, then determined caloric count within each segment showing how much energy they would transfer. If consumed the results were published in the journal scientific reports a thi-, for instance, contains a hefty thirteen thousand three hundred fifty calories while the spleen is a modest one hundred and thirty overall the average human body has anywhere from one hundred twenty five thousand to one hundred and forty four thousand consumable calories. Some parts may take longer to digest you'll rack up ten thousand two hundred eighty calories from humans going alone. While others are snack size like the kidneys and contain about three hundred and eighty calories. The brain spinal cord and nerves were thinking Stu would be the most appropriate cooking method. Here will provide you with two thousand seven hundred calories and the bones contain about twenty five thousand bone. Broth is so untrendy right now after all despite all this talk of ancient eating habits coal concluded that other humans were probably not a nutritive meal of choice compared to competing. Available food sources one single willy mammoth, for example, containing a whopping three point six million calories would have given an entire tribe food for about eight weeks a human on the other hand would have provided enough calories for tribe to subside for only half a day, leaving everyone to wonder what's for dinner after just a few hours. Cole concludes that because of the relatively meagre calorie counts of the human body people. Eight other people for social or cultural reasons not for their health. So modern paleo dieters can breathe a sigh of relief there. Recipe. Books should continue to skip this particular ingredient.
