"This is not a fight that. Single individual or region of the world win without a global coordination severity with respect to w h you. I think our position is very clear that. The world has always been a safer place. Up Global, her problems have always been solved adequately only with the leadership and strong leadership, the United States of the world organization, absolutely no doubt about that. The. HIV AIDS crisis. It would turn. Fight Against HIV is only when the United States launched the president's initiative. To. Against HIV key Corp Pep in two thousand and two, thousand and three, and the continent of Africa has been. From that effort I think the United States has invested over seventy to eighty billion dollars in fighting HIV AIDS on the continent. Continent is extremely appreciative through. Verity Inc. the Global Fund was established in two thousand and one, two, thousand, and two, and it has been a game changer. A good example of how we should coordinate efforts to fight against Kobe nineteen, which is the greatest challenge? The world is having in the last one hundred years so I think. The stone who and a strong United States. Leadership is the key ingredient for us to come out of this. Extremely divest its in a crisis crisis. Dot Com Congress. In terms of the this issue of global solidarity with for years now we've seen a key feature of international. Trade agreements on that where the pharmaceutical companies and other corporations pushed the importance of intellectual property protections, obviously for patents especially of medicines, you believe given this crisis that there should be a suspension of these of this race to control a particular of vaccine, and in essence make it. Available. generically from the start to at least stem of this epidemic, with possibly five or ten years down the line companies, then trying to benefit once the the world situation has stabilized. Thanks very important Christian I think. We the Africa Centers for Disease Control and the African Union. Commission issued a statement in that regard just a few weeks ago to reverse Pacific on the twenty feet of June where we convene A. Continental. National Conference on on covid vaccine on that meeting was cheered by President. Of South Africa is Excellency President. I'm opposed and the cheer of the African Union Commission. Excellency Mussa. The. Essence of that meeting was clear that we have to discuss the issues related to intellectual property. We have to discuss issues related access to vaccines almost in a timely fashion variable for continent of one point, two one point three billion, and exactly what we in that communicate with we touch on the Doha Declaration, which speaks to this intellectual property. You just mentioned nothing. We always reminded. Always, reminded of what happened in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety six Wendy.
Leading the Gates Foundation Fight Against Coronavirus
"We have a really exciting opportunity today to talk to someone. That's helping lead the charge against the crow virus. Mark Suzman is CEO of the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who are putting a ton of resources behind looking for solutions right now and we're really grateful to have a few minutes of your time mark. Thank you for doing this. Great detroi- well. The Gates Foundation has a publication called the optimist which we think is exactly the kind of attitude that we need right now and we'll have time to talk about specifics of the virus in treatments soon but I in general terms at a high level. What's keeping optimistic right now? Well we do have publication called the optimistic with inter-regional you're listening to subscribe. It's a great publication that sort of sends out an US on a pretty regular basis actually comes from Bill and Melinda Gates who are like to call themselves impatient optimists we we decided not to call the publication. The impatient optimists and at times like this. It's sometimes challenging to to feel optimistic but on the real plus side one. We're seeing are really unprecedented progress in of the search for a vaccine that still going to be a wild but we're a pretty confident that they will be a successful vaccine you know unlike say with HIV where we struggle to find one up to more than thirty years. And it's going to be the foster. Sfaxien ever successfully developed in human history there already number of candidates in trials but we have a lot of scientists who look at that and feel pretty confidence and the challenge is going to be really about getting them through as quickly as possible getting them into distribution and manufacturing and trying to make sure that they are globally accessible. Because it's something the world's GonNa need so that probably the biggest one on the horizon. The second one is a cautious optimism. But it's also combined with a worry Which is so far. We haven't seen the kind of days in the developing world which we were very worried about probably off the levels we've seen in the US and Europe. We're working very hard and you. These places with very low and weak health resources to try and help with preparation still worries that there may be major outbreaks but again the steps that have been taken by these countries today despite their challenging circumstances have certainly a voted foul outcomes and that's being another bid relatively good news and I know that that global outlook is really important to the Gates Foundation. What are y'all doing to make sure that the work that you're doing is able to be used worldwide. Yes so that's something we do for like when we work extensively across the US obviously and we have carry lodge program. Which of being heavily disrupted and Writing educational opportunities for low income students and kids of Color in K twelve and post-second buck most by workers in global health and global development issues. And everything we do as informed by what he calls global access so we do a lot of research and development Some of that is in helpings like New Treatments. Or vaccines or things that are Diseases like malaria or tobacco. So I do think that disproportionately affect poor people and we have requirement whenever we make grunts that Any results Former global access. You know they need to be accessible and affordable globally and we support directly a number of organizations that help ensure that happens so the Global Fund to fight. Hiv Malaria Which was actually something where President Bush was the inaugural funded from the US and and was the counterpart to the pet. Far -Unding is a huge operation. That actually helps keep many millions of people on anti retrovirals but also that's bednets across the developing world to prevent Larrea to Berkey Laos's treatments. And what it does is it. Cools or sources including from the foundation many governments including the US which is the largest Funda. And then how? Purchase those at bulk because it is a crisis and then distribute them to the needy globally and we have the partnerships that do the same in areas like vaccines. So I know that scenario that we've worked together on before is in is in global health. We had Bill Melinda Gates recently at our form on leadership for them to talk about the work that they've done and Y'all done a lot of work with global epidemics previously like in global health. You've been very active. What did you learn from the worthy done previously? That's helping you today. So some of it is pretty simple stuff right. You need basic functional primary healthcare systems that that may sound and we're kind of used most people can excess at least minimal basic healthcare in the US effectively but You in very poor countries. That means often. There's barely a clinic with basic equipment or tools. But we need that. We make a lot of investments in trying to support those kind of experts if you have accessible primary care that's able to take early action than that helps prevent a whole lot of the health outcomes and then the car. Koga crisis where you're trying to Provide community engagement or involvement to help support challenges. Where you're often working in situations like crowded urban slums where it's very difficult to sort of isolate if you have symptoms we've seen countries like South Outta go for example which have extensive networks that have been set up to deal with HIV crisis actually being able to mobilize those network to help support Kobe or simply one of the talents we have. We are the largest. Funders globally the. Us is also very generous support of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative that unfortunately it had to be put on pause for why because we can't currently vaccinate children because it's the opposite of social distancing malaria polio vaccine. Excuse me drops that needs to be put in the mouth of a baby. That's held by their parents but we had big infrastructure that we've developed Without the partners over the years including Eunice and the World Health Organization Rotary that is very expert at surveillance and tracking and tracing Things which can now again be used in that Jacobin. So we've had a lot of those kinds of blessedness Which we wish. We didn't have to have them to help. But there certainly are helping with the current crisis
UN health agency leads collaborative bid to get 135 countries ready for COVID-19
"This is Matt Wells at US News. Well if you're an avid follower of curve in nineteen developments you may have wondered what the phrase PCR equipment means. Well it stands for polymerase chain reaction which is the process that labs use to check with someone with cub in nineteen symptoms has the new current a virus after taking a medical swap usually from both nostrils in line with World Health Organization voice to countries to test as many cases of suspected. Infection is possible the race is on to find enough. Pc MACHINES FOR EVERYBODY. And that's where poll molinaro comes in. He's the cool calm collected head of the -gistically the WHO which with other EU partners is part of a major new initiative to help kit out one hundred and thirty five countries trying to see off the pandemic. He's been talking to you and uses Daniel Johnson. So right now. It's trying to get US access to products that are in extremely short supply because of very high demand and be able to get access to those markets collectively on behalf of lowering committing come countries a quiet financed by and move those things to a platform from which we can deliver via aircraft managed by. W and others to the countries where those things are needed. How many countries are we talking about so it depends on the type of on what product I think unless count where anywhere between one hundred twenty one hundred thirty five. We all know that. There's massive demand and not enough supply for face masks gloves. But what's the other equipment that you really trying to get hold of in? Massive numbers diagnostic tests different types of high throughput automated or manual. Pr Systems is critical then in biomedical. It's mainly around provisions of oxygen so oxygen concentrator 's oxygen manufacturing machines ventilators CPAP machines oxygen giving set any sort of mass. That go with it. So it's the PCP around the protection for the health workers lab workers. It's the diagnostics to be able to identify intest who is infected and then for those unfortunate enough to hit the clinical frontline. Is the equipment needed to treat them? And where exactly is it going to go first? How do you prioritize need well? It's difficult so we have developed a model based on epidemiology based on a number of inputs that we make for each country on the attack rate that they're currently facing how many cases they have and then from that we get an estimation of how many bed spaces they would need if they were moving to a clinical environment and that also putting in terms of what other percentages of mild severe severe critical cases that we're experiencing averaged out so it is a little bit of a and had to be done with modeling at the same time. We have a matrix. Who is issued an updates regularly on the various risks and vulnerabilities of countries? Of course we also compare that to current case count and the rate of spread in each country to try and get a sense of where we should be going. I and with numbers. And let's just talk about demand for second you were saying in an earlier press conference that demand is one hundred to two times above normal totally unprecedented stuff. So is this a significant enough measure bringing together enough you and agencies and Non Union partners to make a real difference. Well it's what we can do. So certainly we start off with bringing our partners into the shop and coordinating and working with them in terms of trying to bring together the volumes and the financing that we can collectively get hold off and then approach markets which we have. I mean different. Entities have different experience in different markets. So we try and use what we're strong collectively at. And that I think just gives us a more coordinated approach again beginning off on those elements we work closely with so assist the UN agencies and then some of our larger NGO partners which have long term standing relationship and organizations like the Global Fund and financing institutions like the World Bank like Bill Melinda Gates Foundation to be able to frontload or bridge financing for us to acquire some of these quantities. But with the best will in the world when border start closing and country start hanging onto the food end-equipment that they need to withstand this cove in nineteen new corona virus pandemic. How do you overcome those barriers? And the concern I have is that the World Food Program said that does delays at the borders yourself mentioned that to UNICEF macy's some difficulties in distributing vital vaccines so. What's the prognosis. Wants the outlet? It's difficult and it is a big challenge. Now what we do is we do have a long track. Record of being able to circumvent some of these bottlenecks where humanitarian and disaster. The districts professionals. It's not new to us. It's something we do as bread and butter and we'll continue to do so now with the infrastructure and assets we put in place managed by WFP. That's another partner that we've worked with a lot in the past to to reach areas that are difficult to reach and then around the difficulties with I mean. Who has country representation across the globe so does UNICEF so does the U N D peace within entire UNC system? There are ways that we can advocate within certain governments. And if you see some of these export restrictions doing clued generally provision for exemption for humanitarian and medical movement. It's not always easy to navigate the exemption and it takes persistence and you do have to jump through hoops but again. Persistence is something where we do. Where you sit and so we push forward that way now where we get availability we will. We'll address any issues we we don't face it in all the old country. We do get specific exemptions that negotiated and we do see movements it could be more and certainly will continue pushing for that again with access to a schedule sort of cargo facility provided by WIP and with the know how that collectively we have as you and agencies and NGOs. We can circumvent this. And I guess very last question to you. There's reports that air travel is going to cost fifty percent more now presumably. That will have the same sort of knock on impact on your work. So how will you manage to keep the show going if you like? Well I think when it comes to putting back the passenger networks online. Obviously they're not gonNA be able to fill their planes with people so certain even when we're planning for the WFP passenger service you know. They're not going to be able to have a complete fool plane. I mean especially not at the beginning that going to need to be distant so any airline company is going to have to factor that in now will that same price go onto the freight animal of that that goes underneath the plane. Maybe it will be cheaper. You're not actually loading many twenty or thirty kilos sets of luggage into the hold. Maybe frees up some capacity full cargo on some of these things. One never knows certainly when we were trying to find. F. Rate from China when Chinese manufacturing was down it was very cheap when Chinese manufacturing came back online. It becomes more expensive. It's just the nature of supply and demand over capacity and under-capacity so as these airlines come online maybe a freight we'll get cheaper on certain routes certain segments. Maybe it's going to get more expensive. So sometimes these things can be a bit hard to predict certainly living in a topsy turvy world at the beginning. When a lot of countries were sending support to China every into China was expensive. Now it's the other way round coming back gone up.

"Seventy eight copies downloaded and it got a total of a whopping thirty pages. Read so the fact that my book. My crushes with kindle book kept my readers engaged and amassed nearly three thousand knpc number and that means that they kept reading it and that has walked excites me more so I had the biggest payday yet from Amazon both for the sales as well as from the Katie Peak Global Fund royalty distribution and as the number of books. You right goes up now. You're basically adding more books to the pool. And you have more chances of more pages being read that means a chances more sales and more pages being read and which means a bigger piece of the Pie and the cool thing is the pages. Fred also counts from anybody. Who has the kindle unlimited where they pay ten dollars a month and they can read as many books as they want and if you opted into Katie select that means you are also opting into the kindle unlimited program which which means that even if you don't get direct sales that means if somebody downloads yearbook as part of the kindle unlimited program they read books your book than the Pages Read Count Towards your knpc total so as a kindle author you can make money not just from sales but also by getting your books read and that is critical because that means choosing the right topic and keeping your book super engaging with minimum fluff and maybe when really short not just drag it too March and too much intro and background information and stuff will get more of your book? Read and more pages means bigger paychecks. And after after you have written a kindle book you don't have to stop there you can actually read it out loud and you can create an audiobook from that. Then you can use your kindle book has your starting point for say an accompanying video course which you can get for free or you can sell separately directly from your website. You can start a podcast gasp toward the subject and you can have a solo show or you can interview other guests in that same niche as your book and you can bring in guests from other a pedophile niches so they can create content for you. You become like the authoritative figure like an Oprah and then you use the content to create content marketing videos for social and on and on so you can repurpose the heck out of it from here till eternity but it all all starts with being able to collect an organize your thoughts and ideas and vision and your message. And they're simply no better way to do that than writing a kindle book and finally remember this the goal behind writing a book should not be to make money. Yes you will have some sales and you will get some small small royalty checks and those can add up over time the more books you're right and so on but still it meant never get to the point of being for your mortgage every month or maybe your car payment are your retirement so making money should not be the initial gold behind becoming an author. There are so so many other intangible unseen benefits to becoming an author the ability.
"global fund" Discussed on The Meb Faber Show
"To preserve and grow <unk> long time and can really afford to think like owners think long term and so that was going to be important part of the of the May call ethos of affirm that we did want to be chasing performance on some quarterly your annual basis where we're going to follow these principles in grow preserve this wealth over time so that's really the ideas behind the name woodlock house family capital until talk to me a little bit about what you guys look to invest in in. Is it something I know. You've talked a lot about concentrated investing benefits that what does the portfolio look like. A portfolio is concentrated right now. There's twelve positions. Editions Twelfth Stocks in about ninety five percent investors so I'd say the expedition's may be around twelve or thirteen percent and then there's a couple of ten percent so it's Kinda Chunky. It's Global Fund go anywhere somewhere and you have several stocks listed in Europe so we have ultimate flexibility to go anywhere really do any anything we WANNA do. Markelle capsized. We're not an enter any of those restraints only the self-imposed sort of restrictions that we put ourselves that I put on myself say manager meaning that I'm looking for things where there's some like inside ownership like align management teams so he looked fully. It's all things like that. I know you've written a lot about one hundred books talked about about investing all over the world and I know that bill also has talked about investing in all sorts of other assets gold etc.. I assume your mandate is largely long only fully invested or is it something that you get into other assets associates or other strategies as well now. It's long only and we talked a lot about that in the beginning but I told bill you know I think it'd be better to keep the fun more focused on owning equities for the long term. Let people decide how much they WANNA put gold rather than try to mix the try to say while this funds can do some goal in some fixed income in also have stocks. Let's let people decide how they went allocate their own capital and this is that sleep where they wanna go for long-term owner operators and that buy into that style investing so that's how we set it up. Bill does have about family does have quite a bit gold so they just talk about that destiny but he was read. Bill Bonner stuff knows he's a huge fan of Golden. He's got quite bit goal bill and they have real estate all the world businesses all over the world so that global outlook reflected to the find that when I wrote my letter all those times I did one of the buffets is I got to travel all over the world on my publishers nickel so better a book about that too world right side out which has a lot of my travels I mean when all through Asia on all through South America and I got to poke around and look for each thing ideas and learn about markets in different places so all that carries over into talk to me a little bit about your worldview today. Are you optimistic on opportunities you finding them hand over fist. Maybe talk a little bit about where they could be allocated across the world. What's the globe look like you today? In Twenty nineteen well a sort of resist trying to create some sort of narrative so I don't have some sort of giant macro view big picture view about how things are going to develop. It's really more picking through to these as they come. I think just looking at geographically I have alive exposure in western Europe in part of that is there seems to be a number of companies. They're undergoing different restructuring and change and that where the price is right. I've written about got some of these on my blog is well read about exit which stock we bought earlier in the year and they own pieces of Ferrari in Fiat Chrysler as seen eight global to holding company. It's partly owned by the Agnelli family or I should say. I think they own little over half the share so it's they're sort of family..
Global funds favouring bond over equity markets in the Middle East
"We took a look at the wider Middle East mocks with almond butter, managing director and head of Maine, equities at Credit Suisse. We spoke with State Street CIO at he said, maybe looking at deboned equity markets in the Middle East. It's like Mars and Phoenix Google funds. Heavy naturally pouring money into bonds on the other hand, we've seen the quitted dwindle into regions stock markets bond investors one yield and bones into region actually provide pretty good provide high quality secure. These governments and companies. And did you see, for example, have raised more than fifteen billion jobless selling bonds and Islamic securities in contrast the IPO's into region have raised a little bit more than seven hundred million dollars, and you sing the difference there on a crack in line from Rick KYW in terms of MAs and Venus, but this is about transparency on about market structures and that's really what Rick is referring to isn't that intensive putting money into the Beaumont bone invested us one yield? They won us. Doin' the dirty rice equity investor concerns about transparency corporate governance into region, and also similar decrees should driven by driven by retail investors, and someone that's in the in the region. And for the bond markets, who have the Gulf countries. Inclusion in did you Morgan? Indexes in January and that's expected to attract billions of dollars of money into division, and we're seeing more diversified range of issues in the region as well. We have Iran cough, costs, and on my who which is Saudi Gary operator. And also, we have the operator of office. Those in the middle of these much timing, democracy, recent to me. And so just because you look at what's happening with the bond pricing and Oman and Bahrain just continue to stand out on, on what clearly is the way investors are preceding. The risks on though. What are you hearing from investor? Right. We're seeing recent selloff in Oman's in buttering spawns as political tensions in the region rise. And also, we have the US and U S, China trade more into background and frisk quarter though, Oman in buffering, spawns outperform the region. It's nothing from me from Disney factually, underperformed, the JC media because of concerns over to finances, and we have Davis of Oman, slipping deeper into junk territory and your questions about behind ability to implement it was territory measures and eliminate its budget deficit. So some investors are saying that these the chance to lock in lower cost of funding because they don't expect us to revisit delusion that we saw earlier this year and high, barring cost actually put for.

Forty KCBS it's six twenty could, looking at our phones tablets and TV's slowly be making us go blind a new study finds that the blue light put out by our digital devices causes damage to. Our retinas overtime for more we're joined live on the KCBS ring central Newsline by the study's. Author. Dr Rajiv Coronado then an assistant, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the university of Toledo Dr thanks for joining us this morning. Can you tell us in layman's terms what is happening with the blue light and our retinas Good morning yeah So the this study shows that blue light interact with a molecule, in in our I. Just, call written now it's a small molecule that help before receptors. To sense light and so this blue light can interact with this molecule and. Then Produce some. Toxic chemical species that can damage signaling molecules including lipids and proteins important for. Survival so it's a lot going, on there all triggered by blue. Light, but not other wavelengths yeah so, we examine ranging from UV blue green yellow and. Red and so, this toxic reaction is induced by primarily blue light and UV light, but. One interesting fact is human i-it's I can. Reflect UV light however human is transparent to blue light so so that's why we wanted to investigate that so this he's I had. To, be cleared done in living cells in tissue culture dishes and. So we tested a different cell ties some of the sales are From derived from the? Retina some of the Kansas house? So this blue light was able to kill induce cell that in all these sell tight so. We need more investigations to make sure that this reaction is actually, happening in in retina. These. Photo receptor cells that ended up being, damaged, can, they be. Regenerated one sorta recept to sell the damage according to current knowledge of the. We don't think they can they, can be regenerated so let's talk. A, little about blue light in our. Environment not just outdoors in sunlight but indoors with. All the screens, we're looking at how much blue light are we being exposed to, how. Do we know we're getting too much what. Can we do about it Yeah so we met should be light emission. From where is electric devices and and and all the devices most of the electric devices Emmett, blue light I mean that's. Why we can see. Colori majors color pictures because dead generator from three basic colors, so what in this study, studies done with the artifice generated. Blue light current investigation is focused on actually examining how much light, is coming out of these electronic devices and? How harmful they can be so At this point we don't exactly know how much. Damage If any DC electronic devices, can be listed so when we exposed to them. Doctor we're almost out of time about thirty seconds, left but I notice in your report that you say, avoid looking at cell phones or tablets in? The. Dark does, a lighted room, make it helpful difference definitely you know TD win the room is lighted our pupils are actually contracted, so small, amount light is injuring. So but if you're looking at any. You. Know the bright light emitting light source if the surrounding us dock your people's are dilated and lot more light, is entering the is so in that situation the light at the I can can.
