Bipartisan Senators Reach Deal on Infrastructure Bill, but It Faces Hurdles

The group of ten senators didn't reveal details of the plan but people familiar with the proposal. Say it would spend nine hundred seventy four billion dollars over five years and one point two trillion dollars. If it continued over eight years to move forward those plans will need buy in from a broader group of lawmakers and the white house.

"Have to take a minute to go over coin basis. Insane q one numbers. We've always even spending a lot of time here this week. On coin base. They announced the date of their ipo last week. And it is slated for april fourteenth. Now part of the reason they delayed their ipo until q two was so that they could release their q. One numbers and boy were they. Monster in total coin base has over fifty six million verified users. Compare that for example to robin hood's thirteen million active users went from two point. Eight million in q four two thousand twenty to six point one million in q one twenty twenty one trading volume in q one was three hundred and thirty five billion compared to one hundred ninety three billion for all of two thousand twenty and total assets on coin base went from ninety billion to two hundred twenty three billion a one hundred and fifty percent jump quarter over. Quarter the craziest part of that one. And certainly validation of the institutional narrative was that one hundred and twenty two million of that two hundred and twenty three billion overall came from institutions. Now the number that people were most focused on was revenue. Revenue was one point eight billion for the quarter compared to one point three billion for all of last year and something that will be absolutely shocking to wall street. The company actually had a net income of seven hundred and thirty million to eight hundred million. Basically this is exactly what the crypto kids knew was coming but still caught. Many wall street analysts off guard. Da davidson raised their price. Target from one hundred ninety five dollars a share to four hundred forty that price target is a twenty x multiple on twenty twenty one revenue. They had previously estimated six hundred and fourteen million in q one revenue which was obviously about a billion dollars off this price target would put coin bases valuation at a whopping. One hundred and forty-four billion dollars

I the opportunity of joining amazon web services in its early days back when it was only a four billion dollar business in was part of the original team that was tasked with working with the security ecosystem and helping them that are understand how their value propositions could apply to public cloud customers in particular airbase environments so there is a big pivot that a lot of the scared ecosystem partners had to do to. You know how their current solutions that were typically built for data centers needed to evolve and kind of re architect and rethink around what value they can bring the public cloud and ultimately how they had architect solution to be Well architect for those types of environments so that tend to be a big pivot for a lot of customers so it was great to see the industry evolve you know from the very mature data center. Well established commercial solutions in how they pivoted to the startups. That took specific Look almost from scratch around what they can do uniquely. And that's where some of the very first cloud security posture management tools kind of popped up way back in two thousand fifteen. So yeah it's been great to see the industry of wall during that period. Yeah so it seems that you were well educated on how to secure the cloud and you're also doing some educating to the companies that we're using. Aws yes it was journeys eighty s platform evolved. And you know those. Those platform solutions became more mature. A lot of them kept adding incremental security capabilities which again created more friction and opportunity at the same time for a lot of the ice vs s are called independent software vendors to kind of rethink what value they can bring to customers ultimately how they can leverage some of those native services and the telemetry that comes with them to bring you unique security value

Gone Fishing

Why It Matters

Gone Fishing

"Can be tough to try and make lifestyle choices that will help build a healthier world over and over we find out that one of our habits is contributing to climate change inequality or the destruction of earth's bio-diversity even habits. We thought were healthy. Take seafood for years. We were told that fish were an important part of a good diet but now we are learning that many of the fish we are used to eating or threatened species. Seafood is the largest traded food commodity in the world and it plays an essential role in our global diet for some people. Fish are a luxury but in many of the world's poorest and fastest growing populations it's a matter of survival at the same time relentless industrial fishing methods are pushing many species to the brink. If things don't change our fishing habits could devastate ocean bio-diversity and deplete a resource that humanity needs in order to survive. Fish are in trouble but the solution may not be what you expect. I'm gabrielle sierra. And this is why it matters today. Will there always be plenty of fish in the sea. What's over seventy six percent of the world's fish now or fish fished capacity overfished or collapsing and fifty years. The earth has lost more than half of its life. We completely destroy the natural balance of fish in the world's oceans. So are we going to run out of fish. If the current way that humans are fishing continues in the current practices remaining unchecked. That doesn't set up a good scenario for our future. My name is michelle curic. And i'm the vice president for ocean policy at the world wildlife fund. In the united states the pressure the amount of fish the frequency the quantities. That fishermen are taking out a really causing many stocks to be in very bad shape in terms of their future viability. I mean fish is one of the most heavily traded food commodities that we have fishing really is a big business in two thousand eighteen. The global export market reached an estimated value of one hundred and sixty four billion dollars. Asia is the leading region in the fishing industry with china south korea japan taiwan and one outlier spain fielding the most vessels globally the european union the united states and japan or the three places that consume the most fish by volume. And it's really valuable. Many different species are very high. Cost so there is a lot of profit to be made in catching fish. We have these manmade causes. These drivers these threats that are caused by you know just better technology. Bigger boats better refrigeration easier methods of transport and we have some of the man induced natural factors like climate change which are also changing the water quality the composition the affiliation of the water. That fish call home and some species can't adapt that well they move to different parts of the ocean to have a more hospitable climate and that then raises lots of political issues about get to catch. And how many if you've ever gone fishing. You know the drill a rod align a hook some bait and maybe a boat but modern day industrial fishing looks nothing like that. The boats and many fishing fleets are essentially gigantic floating factories inside. They have all the machinery necessary to process freeze and package. Hundreds of tons of fish per day guided two schools of fish by sonar and spotter planes. Some of these ships dragnets that are over a mile long sneering whole schools of fish that thereafter and many that they aren't after to some of the methods are shocking take bottom trawling which involves dragging massive nets across the ocean floor in the hopes of sweeping up fish the process destroys coral and other ocean floor ecosystems that are essential for all kinds of life just for one catch s fish populations decline these fleets are having to travel further from land and drag their nuts deeper in order to reach their targets when it comes to fisheries. There are two things that are important to know first about one in three fish. Stocks is overfished at that means that we are catching more than the population is able to produce by his branch. I'm the director of fisheries at the foot and organiz ation of the united nations. And i'm also a professor at the university of exeter in the uk to have an analogy with john king. We are eating into the capital rather than just using the interest that doesn't mean that we collapsing. The population is just. This is not sustainable. We need actually to change that. But we see a dichotomy of what is happening. Between developed countries and developing countries in developed countries. We see increasingly an improvement in sustainability status in developing countries. We see the opposite. We see it decrease in sustainability increasing volume of problems. Those are not easy to resolve.

So hopefully this reopening story will spread to other retailers to in the weeks ahead yet definitely. I still remember when we first started hearing all these different stores that were closing. And that's when. I think hit me that this was really a big deal because obviously never hear stores closing. Even you know even like hurricane type stuff. Maybe that's maybe the only other time and even then you might still stuck open but to see like wholesale all these different businesses just had down was. I've never seen anything like it.

Biden addresses the Munich Security Conference, Rescinds Trump's Sanctions on Iran

"The biden administration wants to talk to iranian leaders about rejoining the twenty fifteen nuclear agreement. Let's recall here. Donald trump withdrew the us from that deal and restored sanctions on iran. That put the us at odds with us. Allies who remain part of the agreement along with other world powers today in his first speech to world leaders. President biden lays out his plan. Npr white house correspondent gordonia as is following this story. Good morning frank. Oh good morning. Well what do we expect to hear. President biden say about iran. Well senior officials told us yesterday that the united states is ready to accept an invitation from the european union to hold talks with iran about its nuclear program. Of course obviously the former president donald trump had quit the deal that was aimed at curbing. Iran's nuclear program biden said during the campaign that he was ready to take steps to rejoin the international pack but his team has repeatedly said that iran. I needed come. Back into compliance officials said yesterday that biden will not get into specifics about timetables but added that. He's keen to hear what iran has to say. And it's still really unclear if the run would even accept such an offer. They had demanded that sanctions be lifted. I but regardless. This is a big step toward diplomacy with iran which we have not seen in four years. I'm struck by the language that the us is ready to accept an invitation from the european union and it makes me wonder does biden have to convince us allies that we are prepared to work with them again. We will work with them again. I mean short. Yes i mean. We expect that biden today is really going to dig into his. America is back message. A senior official told us last night that the speech would be a quote confident. Clarion call for european allies to work together on global challenges. He'll talk about working together on the pandemic as well as other issues like arms control cyber hacking and climate change and to prove that commitment he plans to announce a four billion dollar contribution to kovacs. That's the international fund to help get covert vaccines to the poorest countries. The president will be making this speech to the munich. Security conference virtually. He won't be there in person. Of course who is going to be speaking to today you know. He is a very familiar face at this conference which is kind of who's who of people involved in national security around the world the leaders of germany france and the united kingdom will also be there.

A rare Botticelli portrait fetches $80 million in Sotheby's auction

"About cheddi portrait. This week smashed the auction record for the nasal artist. Portrait of a young man with a roundell hammered at eighty million dollars. Sotheby's in new york on ninety two point one million with fees. The previous record for was relatively low. Ten point four billion dollars set in two thousand. Thirteen by the so-called rockefeller madonna portrayed. A young man had lost come to auction in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and its attribution to put. A chill was doubted by everett. Fall by then. The director of new york's frick collection. Who declared to be by francesco. Totti cini a follow of botticelli for he apparently later changed his mind and now the work is widely agreed to be a botticelli but while that work the price it was expected to a small but luminous rembrandt painting abraham and the angels from sixteen forty six which had estimate of twenty to thirty million dollars was withdrawn at the last minute. As we recorded the podcast sotheby's not yet given an explanation for its withdrawal. I spoke to scott rayburn a contributor to the newspaper and the new york times immediately after the sale. About whether it's a risk to bring these works wash now amid the pandemic and what it tells us about the market for your masters in general scott before we talk about the particular. Lots came sotheby's today. I wanted to ask you about the old master market in general and obviously the fact that he are in the middle of a pandemic and we're in an economic crisis. Does it make sense to bring these kind of lots to watch it this time. Well this is how the b.'s. new york gets the big master cell. Everyone wants to consigned to this sale. This is the moment The markets dealers on people. I speak to in that world. Say new york is where everyone wants to sell their overly only one sale year evening sale and that was the time to sell uncles. The pandemic been going on for nearly a year now in terms of restrictions on auctions sotheby's created incredibly slick format for this hybrid livestream sale It seems to be working. Well the thing about losses of courses. This isn't contemporary art. It's an unfashionable collecting field and it was always going to be a real test for that collecting field in the current environment. That's the interesting thing is because of course the leonardo so and of course the leonardo salvator mundi was very very unusual. So we have to caveat everything with that sure but christie's when they sold that put that into the contemporary sale. Luckily and i wondered how you feel about whether old master lots might do better in more mixed fields versus the traditional roadmaster sale. And who dictates that but with the salvator mundi. My understanding was that it was just a brainwave by the genius auction air Loic gouzer Thinking well let's put it in a contemporary sale. It's such a strange object If it's an old master sale than people just pick it to bits and criticize it in a contemporary sale be would just be looking at the image. And of course christie's marketing machine went into absolute overdrive and they marked it absolutely brilliantly Using the typeface of the dan brown novel to promote it You know they pulled out every stop and it worked sensationally. Well whether you the extent to which you can do again is is really questionable. Because that is as you point out in uttar outlaw. They self-talk mundi in in every respect. But what was interesting about. The marketing of this sale at celebici's is once again. The sophistication of the marketing with every lot. The work was shown online hanging on a white wool in a contemporary style. Interior where you'd expect a damien hirst to hang on then there would be to further reassure the contemporary minded by will the asian bah. There was a very attractive. Cooley dressed asian girl standing next to the painting in a contemporary interior. I that all walking the hilarious thing about this marketing ploys that in both cases they weren't actually looking at the picture they were just standing there. It was clearly if he's of marketing to reassure contemporary art buys but it was very smart and slick and clever and they and they're pulling out the stuff that incredibly inventive about it

"Know.

I'm a fan of all the brands in Esports and especially Puma because they're led by Matt Shaw who happens to be one of my favorite people in all of these Sports on Sunday Puma announced a new major sponsorship Puma sponsoring ten cents king of league. If you haven't heard of the kpl the kpl is the top level of honor of Kings Esports, and I know you don't live in China on Earth Kings is called Arena of Valor in the West End is basically League of Legends mobile version including being published by 10 said now Riot games is actually in the process of creating wild Rift and official mobile version 4 league, but it likely won't take off in China because on Earth Kings is already huge and domination. Market, and it really really dominates that market as of March 2019 the game and brought in four point five billion dollars according to sensor Tower. I'll do something quick extrapolating math here. I found individual month's Revenue numbers from 20 20, which average I think this actually might be a conservative estimate another two hundred million dollars per month in revenue for honor of Kings. So if we take to walk 1 million as an average and multiply it by the 22-month separating March 2019 and January 2021, we get an additional four point four billion dollars in Revenue that would bring honor of Kings total halt to a point nine billion dollars since launch in 2015. That's a lot of money a lot of money this week the developer TV studios. Also announced another $154,000 would be invested in honor of Kings Esports with about six million of that going to prize pools for Puma. It's a huge win. The only other Esports League represented by Athletic Apparel birth. Like I said at the top is Nike and they have the League of Legends Pro league in China. And while the LPL is almost certainly the most important individual League contract and all of Esports honor of Kings K p.m. Is honestly not that far behind. It's just almost purely popular in China what Nike got with the LPL was also that International exposure that comes with worlds. Primarily Puma also offer deals with Cloud Nine and Gingy. I predicted the race for Esports assets from Nike Puma and Adidas would pick up and twenty Twenty-One and with Adidas already partnering with G2 and now Puma grabbing the kpl only in January. The race is definitely picking up steam already.

Qualcomm Putting Some Apple in Snapdragon!?

"Will you know that. Apple's been making a lot of progress with the silicon products. Put out and most. Recently people were talking about the m. One the mobile chip for laptops. And it'll probably make its way into desktop computers. They're pro stuff eventually some version of it they'll throw in exxon it number in there whatever. It is a bunch more course. So that's been the most recent thing that people have been talking about is kind of the performance. They've been able to achieve for a company that's so fresh to that market. But they're not really that fresh because they've been doing big things in the mobile processor department for a really long time with a series lineup culminating in the most recent version world away in a fourteen. Yes iphone twelve. Twelve pro Ipad air right has a version of that doesn't it. They put a different name on it. When it goes in the ipad honestly can't remember. Did they put an x. Or something huts in the okay. It appears to fourth generation ipad. Air as well okay. So anyways look. They're doing big things to the point. Where if you check the benchmarks. If you're one of these people apple just been crushing it for a really long time now. This doesn't always equate to being the fastest device. Interact with it. It really depends on the use case. Scenario and benchmarks are benchmarks. Take it for what it is but it does mean something. It means that that apple is doing big things in that department with the those engineers that work there and It's been a differentiating characteristic for them is not just the stuff has been an amazing performance perspective but also that they are so very integrated you know from the design and then the software and the The whole picture so it has kind of left people on the android side. Maybe a feeling a little little lacking now the necessarily me. Because typically. If i'm on the flagship snapdragon like not bumping into those performance barriers in most cases. But you know every company wants to have these bragging rights will listen to this. What took place today. Qualcomm hired a company. Called new via a nubia is a company which was a branch out of numb from a number of employees responsible for having worked on chips at apple. Okay these dudes new. They go out of their way. Like you know we can. We can do some stuff now if i. They were focused mostly on server side of things. They were not necessarily focused on mobile but obviously qualcomm saw something in their potentially whatever intellectual property exists inside of there while i hope not just their minds but also somewhere inside of their records and their designs or appease their you know whatever it is that they're working on qualcomm obviously thinks if they're gonna by the way they they spent one point four billion dollars qualcomm thinks they're going to extract some of that and potentially put it into their products via the snapdragon lineup. So this into this for a second okay. New was founded in two thousand nineteen and it was a a trio that were involved in the most important chipset companies from intel amd the api arm and broadcom and they worked at apple where they played a part in designing the high performance a series chips for iphones and ipads. That's the key line right there. And we've been talking about this in the other direction with apple and tesla apple out there grabbing some tests engineers tesla executives. It's like what do you know about it. Yeah it's a shakedown piece falling out there. That's how it works. You know they flip them upside down like the change comes out of the pockets. Yeah in cartoonish way. And that's how that's all they have to do and then they just send them on their way to go work. We got the change out. Your pocket. of course doesn't work like that. No i mean this stuff happens. How corporate world all right. That's how it goes so even though these guys aren't necessarily working a mobile chips right now qualcomm believes. There's something in there that there's a chance to do something. Big

"Deductible may apply all right let's go to some of the call is out there let us go to John Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania on the mark live in a go are you there are you doing today okay thank you I was discussing on the phone about the movement and specifically ask them for about the Chinese government and I was wondering why we've seen them changing policies were we pulled ourselves out of pushing into the economy here and we have situations where of the government of China has set up the government that their funding the fail so that their underlying contract or Sam well the where the latter I'm not understanding the former point can you say that again specifically we changed our our points of interest within these economy and aren't following through with specific now when you when you say we you mean our government has withdrawn from these economies what do you mean now we have a real during the bush two thousand two thousand six there were some initiative started that it seems that the current administration's but on one specific what are we talking about I don't I'm not familiar with this well we were talking about you know the government of China going I know that the government trying to what was it the bush was doing in these countries well they were developing the actual trade pact that make sure that the American interests within these economies is actually taking care of I mean a lot of local I. what China is doing is are going in and they're saying to a poor country African countries in particular but also in South America Hey look what do you need okay we need a four billion dollar loan okay we want that port as collateral knowing damn well that these corrupt regimes can't pay for it so they give the four billion dollars they can't pay for in China says thanks and they move a a carrier not a carrier but the move the battleship or something into that port and I'll take it over that's what's going on I don't know exactly how to respond to that but we need to do something they also have other other deals I've talked about it before they've contracted with that Panama to run both sides of the Panama Canal the Chinese actually run both sides of the Panama Canal so there's a lot we should be doing that we're not doing and I'll tell you one of the problems in response to John is as with the present the United States was under so much attacked domestically fighting for his survival quite frankly and that of his family each and every day that our enemies are thrilled about this our enemies are trying to wait about our energy and our enemies are trying to take advantage of it these people in Congress these Democrats in these people in the media these phony journalists they are truly harming this country at a very very dangerous time in our history I'm not familiar with what specific program you're talking about and I don't think you are because I've actually three times I'm really not sure but nothing prevents American businesses from going into these countries in trying to conduct business either all right my friend thank you for your call I appreciated Mike Charlotte North Carolina Sirius satellite go right ahead good evening mort good evening and talking about the Russians Russians the Chinese morning to move in and take it over and what they'll do is they will close the economic system there and the freedom of the economy and how long will it take The New York Times or one of these idiot socialist Canada clones democratic song to come in and say you're free at home he doesn't work here no I I I don't really think they would do that it's too obviously foolish I mean when somebody moves their military to a country crushes that I don't think the response is going to be see capitalism doesn't work stable to do the attack the president member anything anybody does sets evil or negative are troubling or whatever it's trumps fought so they'll say trump should have been stronger trump's relationship with G. isn't that good trump should have done this that and the other meanwhile the Chinese expanded massively under the Obama administration they moved into the South China Sea we're billing those phony islands they stole an enormous amount of our technology and trumpets stood up to them so I think they're more likely to attack the president the United States directly well I mean it it sounds okay in not one but you know one of the two was going home it's terrible and by the way have you heard a single one of these Democrats talk about any of this no one of one of the talking about talk about anything that Israel is now what what are they talking about trump the racist that's it that's it they don't want to talk about real things to they have no answers there are no answers about North Korea they have no answers about Iran they do more appeasement more appeasement with money you know pay off the terrorists what China they have absolutely no response they sell at the trying to before they sold out to North Korea before they Natalie sold out to the Iranians before they funded the Iranians thank you for your call they'll Savannah Georgia how are you Sir hello

"Runs the four billion dollar M capital group which specializes in active fixed income portfolios. So let's go back to nineteen eighty nine. You have this big set of tax changes how much of a game changer was that for launching a fixed. Income farm actually, the game changer for Olympic capital was the growth of a bench implants wanting minority managers the change in the nineteen eighties that became a stronger issue, but seen waters was that. They will Radi pushing for it. She stealing the in congress, and she's still doing the same the changing loss game for the handed worth individuals or foreigners not for Finnish plants. But there was this big push for hiring. My no. Not money managers. Actually, they were carving out smoke pieces from the guy locations from the piece the big funds always have been very biased towards using the beam Qasim one of the world's shirt black rocks. But there were saying desire to use African American Asian Hispanic companies. So we saw an opportunity there being a Hispanic firm to pick up some of that money. So that's the way we started. Now, they seek to merging managers. It's no longer minority. There was a court case that stopped the use of minority discriminatory. And by now where will be too big because emerging so we have to compete them performance. So well, that's that's not the worst thing in the world. So when you say RFP's by big institutions, your clients and potential clients are these giant funds? They put out a request for proposal, and you respond with repose, and that's the basis of either winning the business or not is that a fair way to describe. That's correct. They will get probably thirty to forty responses that will pick up five or six finalist. And then you they visit you and then pick up your Ford that present to the boards, and then the board the sites who gets the money. So what are those beauty contests says they've been called? What are they like when when a firm comes in and starts kicking the tires and looking around your shop? What's that experience? Like, it's an interesting experience because you have the numbers to show for performance. But they went to understand the process. They went to understand the people. They went to make sure you have the back coffee. To support it compliance has become so important. The most interesting part for me has being that almost all the teams. Luke identical three men. One woman. Everybody's seeks one waste two hundred three pounds. Whereas rooks Burr brothers, suits. And in our case where different I my accent doesn't. Well, if I don't think it hinders anything, but I'm not the peop- because presented that they normally have to joke with the boards and try to be more, casual probably when you are smaller firm, and you own the firm, you feel that you don't have to explain to anybody. Why you made it or you didn't make the cut or the win the business or not? So I like to enjoy the competition I like to I enjoy to to be fighting as big boys, hopefully, sometimes winning. So is that an advantage to be relaxed in casual and informal and joke around. With these people who are used to much more formal stiff the the group that you described sounds like they're all manufactured in the same factory. And maybe the factories Warton or Harvard Business School, but the fact that they all look so similar and speak. So similarly to give you a tactical advantage when you're presenting. I think maybe many cases does another's they expect to have that. And they want that tradition prison presenter, I most of product of the same base school. You know? So so then my partner in the business went through the to Annapolis. So you have the square American seeks one, blah, blah, this crazy Mexican coming gain in joking with the board. So I think becoming nation makes him laugh, and it makes you it makes you befriend in their eyes. And they remember you more memorable. Right. So I have a friend who's at pimco. And he always he's now retired. But he used to complain that he doesn't have time to to do anything or go to conferences, or what have you because they're so busy managing trillion dollars in fixed income, and I used to bust his chops by saying, yeah. But it's not stocks. It's bond. That's that's practically manages itself. Which is a joke in the middle of a giant bonds bull market, but the little tiny bit of truth in that is. Is how m- how much was it like shooting fish in a barrel during the fat part of that bull market. You had rates coming down from what fifteen percent down to practically zero. How challenging was it operating during that giant long term trends there to problems managing fixing one is making sure you don't step on a minus before that you don't by WorldCom bond or an Enron bond or Pacific electric on the other side, you have the matter of liquidity size. It's not easy to be being coking. You have quit you decide to move and you have to sell five hundred million or a billion dollars worth of a bond. You have to find another piece another buyer on the other side, it takes two to Tango. And for them to find the counterparty is very hard for a firm. Cowers? They do move within or twenty million dollars. You can always find the other site in transaction. And after the crises in Onen, they allocated much less capital. Two desks. So they don't have even Dory. So when you went to transaction you have to go out and bid in the market, and it's very hard to find a big chunk of of the same product. If you went to be half commonality, your performance, if you if you're a buyer what about if you're a seller sex story like my assumption is if I have a ton of bonds to sell I pick up the phone, I call black rock, and they buy whatever whatever's out there. They were not of the thing is they don't want to allocate money to bonds. They don't want to park money in bonds. So that will only do the transaction eve. They want them at that precise moment and the broker dealers will only do them if they find the buyer immediately, if not just tell you there is no market for your. Bonds right now, and we'll keep you in mind, and that might take three days or three weeks. So there's a little bit of an illusion of liquidity in bonds when it's actually harder to sell them than we tend to think, you're absolutely right. I mean, that's why they're no diamond sales importance. You never see in stocks. You can say I put in my order eleven fourteen in the morning gave me all the transactions between eleven fourteen and fifteen and your order has to be there. No time Stanford mono time stamping bonds, quite interesting coming.
