‘Tenet’ Rollout Set: 70 Countries to Begin Opening by End of August, Followed by U.S. Over Labor Day Weekend

"What is the latest if I may ask on movies? So the latest update is that tenant is going to come out at the end of August worldwide but not in America because we haven't earned it yet, and because all the other countries across the globe have become much safer and have gotten to places where they can get bigger crowds into place like a movie theater. And we just jump in in there. Just a quick second. Do you know what countries have theaters open by country? Just about all of them, I think I think the plan is that it's going to go to seventy countries on the opening weekend situation and then the goal is for it to open in basically whatever theaters can take it in America on Labor Day weekend. According, according to the. Twitter posts that you met re tweeted it says that the territory's will include Australia, Canada France Germany Italy Japan Korea Russia Spain and the UK. And then that'll keep growing out from there. I think China's on the list to and. Yeah, and then Labor Day weekend it should come to America and there's a lot of people talking about like, oh well, how will they decide what theaters and what cities are going to get ten like it right now they're saying like select theaters will get it in America, but that's not gonNA. Happen. To like these are still one-third filled auditoriums If you have a wall and can protect tended onto it, you will get ten because they got. They're just GONNA like try to put this ever I bet you drive we'll get it. I bet you anywhere that can get tenant and make money off of it. They will give you ten at this point I imagine 'cause they can't. They can't hold on much longer, right? No, and they're not going to have New York L. A. Most likely when it comes out because those cities are still those those cities are still kind of locked down especially in group numbers. So they're gonna put it anywhere so. And at this point I don't think they can delay it anymore I think if they do it again, everyone's just going to be like just laugh. So can have a collective mental breakdown. So it's Technically Labor Day. New Movies. Or at least new movie singular well, new. New movie move. New Movie Labor Day Wins Labor Day not for a month.

Battling Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs

"We're GONNA start our show today by taking a trip back to the nineteen eighties when singer. Songwriter Billy Joel was at the top of his game and he released two. Song Allentown about the decline of the steel industry. In America steel factories were closing in steelworkers. Were losing their jobs. The song shed light on the challenges the workers faced and at the same time. It made allentown a city in Pennsylvania quite famous so now let's fast forward twenty or so years. Two Thousand and one and Allentown is in the news again but this time it's because of an insect an agricultural pest from Asia had somehow found its way to Pennsylvania. The insect called the Brown rated stink bug feeds on apples. Peaches figs mulberries citrus fruits and other crops. Well it didn't take long for these tough little bugs to spread and by twenty ten. They wrecked havoc on orchards and crops in various parts of the United States. And the really bad news. Is that Brown? Mom rated stink. Bugs are still here and there on the move and they may soon arrive to a fruit tree near you. So what can we do about it? I've invited Tracy Leschi to the studio today to find out. She's an entomologist. And by the way an optimist as you will discover in this interview today. She's also the director of the Appalachian Fruit Research Station at Cairns Ville West Virginia. Her research is focused on the development of behaviorally based management tools for invasive and native pest of fruit crops. But before we start chatting I would love to hear your stories and your questions during the show you can email those questions and stories to in-studio one. Oh one at g mail DOT COM and do remember to include your first name and the city. You're writing from so tell us. Have you seen these bugs in your fruit trees? And what have you done about it in studio one a one at g mail dot com is the email so now to Tracy Leschi. Thanks for coming on the show today. Thank you Susan for the invitation. I'm so glad to have you here. And hopefully you will shed some light on these mysterious bugs. Oh my goodness so. The Story Starts Allentown. Can you tell me a little bit about that discovery? What was happening around then here. So you know Brown Mama Rated Stink Bug as you've already mentioned is a species that is not native to North America. It's native to Asian countries including China Japan Korea and Taiwan. This insect is an excellent hitchhiker And we'll probably get to that in a little while but at some point in the to late. Nineteen nineties homeowners. In and around the Allentown region of Pennsylvania were Seeing some interesting invaders in the fall to their homes and in fact these were Brown. Mom rated stink bugs. Now the issue was is that they weren't properly identified until two thousand one when Karen Bernhardt who with Penn State cooperative extension in Pennsylvania collected some of these specimens from a homeowner and she ended up sending them to attacks honest Rick Holbeck at Cornell and he identified them as Brown mom rates. Think so this was the first official record of population in North America. So how on Earth would they have gotten there? How did they get to these people's homes right so one of the interesting things about Brown mom rated stink bug is that they are excellent hitchhikers as adults and that means is that they can sort of end up being concealed and hidden from view and sort of take a journey to somewhere else and this is related to what we as entomologist refer to as their over wintering behavior which is essentially like hibernation for insects. So when these insects hibernate more or less they crawl into cracks and crevices and hunker down and wait for spring. And if these cracks or crevices happens to be in some sort of shipment of goods or perhaps in your suitcase or who knows This is how often these bugs have been transported to new locations. Whoa so how quickly would they spread? So let's say or what a what a thought. Let's say it's in your suitcase. You've gone on holiday to China. Or whatever he brought back these little hitchhiking bugs So let's say you have one bug or two bugs what happens then. How quickly would they spread? Well if you found one or two bucks I'd tell you to kill them I but You know it's a good question. They have a pretty good Reproductive capacity that sort of what we say in terms of you know how quickly can a population build up? Based on the reproductive efforts of a female a single female can lay up to twenty eight eggs at a time in in an egg mass. And she can lay up to four hundred over her lifetime. So you can imagine if you know. Just a portion of those eggs survived to adulthood and then reproduce. You can see that. A population could build rather quickly so is is that what happened like You know how quickly did this problem spread? You said it started sort of in the late nineties. It was discovered two thousand and one. And then what happens? Well what happened? After that was it was a slow spread And it was a slow build up for a number of years so in two thousand and three I found the first specimen officially outside Pennsylvania in Maryland. Just south of Allentown Pennsylvania. I in in sort of central Maryland in a town called Hagerstown There was some. Also some official detections in New Jersey and then it continued to spread through what we refer to as the mid Atlantic here in the United States and to Virginia West Virginia You know parts of Delaware Into upstate or sort of well. I should say downstate New York so the populations continued to build Over a number of years and then you know really began to build quickly back in two thousand eight two thousand nine and in two thousand and ten throughout the region. We really experienced what we refer to as an outbreak population. So what did that look like Especially if you're growing cheese. Yeah it looked well you know. When we first began to detect problems in fruit trees from Brown mom raided stink bug and say two thousand eighteen thousand nine. The issues were confined really to the late season. Where just before harvest and this is really painful. If you can imagine your fruit just about ready to be picked from the tree almost ripe. We were seeing large numbers of adult invading the orchards in the fall and feeding on the fruit and this was causing for some of our local growers up to ten percent loss. Even back then but in two thousand and ten we saw the bugs invading earlier much earlier actually just after the fruit had formed just after pedal fall essentially in these orchards. In that early season feeding really set up our growers for significant losses. Where you know for our Peach Growers. Many growers lost their entire crops. Most lost half of their crop. And then it just went on from there. You know apples and Incurred ABOUT THIRTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS IN LOSSES. Thousand and ten just locally. That's terrible was the fruit. Not salvageable at all. I mean what what do these Brown marmalade stink bugs due to the fruit? Yeah they are you know. They are a typical stink bug species in that their mouth parts are essentially a straw and they insert that Straw into the fruit tissue and they inject some salivary enzymes that essentially helps break down that tissue and suck out the juice and so what they leave behind. Is this dry corky tissue beneath the surface of the skin as well as discolored display depressions on the surface now for peaches because the feeding Began so early essentially once you peel that fruit. The entire fruit was riddled with these deep pockets of dead comey tissue and you know. The entire fruit was essentially unsolvable. It was just a complete loss. For FOR APPLE. Growers some of the fruit could be redirected to From sort of a fresh market to juice market. But you know they're getting Cents on the dollar in terms of the value so in essence they're losing over. Ninety percent of the value of that fruit have normally gone into fresh market. So it was very

The Weaponization of China's Rare Earths

"Threatened to restrict exports of rare earths this group of seventeen obscure minerals on which the military and tech industries depend overwhelmingly produced in China. Katie Martin discusses, how the world came to be so dependent on one country for such an essential part of the industrial supply chain with Lucy Hornby and Henry Saunderson. So Henry, first of all, what exactly are these rare earths Serara, sir group of seventeen brother obscure minerals with funny names? They're not actually technically geologically rare, but China's over mass dominant position in the world's production of them, but they are critical than integral part of modern life. And they used in everything from our mobile phones, to satellite surveillance in the oil industry, even emergency rooms, and in scanners so life as we know it couldn't really continue without them. And they all suddenly thrust into the spotlight, right? I mean how have the markets reacted to China's threat? Markets have rather very quickly and both the prices for some railroads have shot up. But also share prices for rare earth companies listed in China have gone up a lot and also some companies outside China, for instance, this two listed in London show pices for those companies have gone up a lot. So the market is reacting, very quickly and hope for the rare earth, producers will see the benefits of higher prices, I guess, majorly so Henry mean give us some examples, you know, I'm wondering around with my mobile phone has back got this stuff in it. You walk through the ways that touch daily lines. Yes. So you're apple iphone does have lots of rare earths, and when it vibrates that's actually a little motor that contains rare earths, and there's rarest in the speaker in the camera and your apple has paid a lot attention to this. And I was looking at the report the other day and they said recycled supply Aurora's is not. Widely available so rare us the critical to Lord technology. But really, what people are focused on is rare earth, magnets. And that's because the growth area because electric cars uses powerful magnets in electric Motors. And also, they used them wind turbines. If you look at industries growing quickly, that's where people paying a lot of focus and also because China has not only dominant share producing rare us. But also producing these magnets over ninety percent share in these magnets. So these future industries of coming very reliant on China. Yes, an interesting point. I mean, how did China manage to make it self so dominant hair, and it's anything other countries can do to step up production in the event that supplies a withheld, there is some production outside China, and there are some emerging projects, but the problem has been capital, getting investment, and also competing with China on cost because China has the scale assuredly being low cost because of late. And environmental reasons, but also the last time a crisis over rarer throughout a lot of people go burned by new projects of investors got burn. So the question this time around is who's willing to put up the money. Can you compete with China and also will consumers pay a premium for non China supply? This is a huge question in the market, which is a consumer's willing to pay more to guarantee their supply chains on dominated by China. And so would it be possible for China to target only the US or will they send to be sweet? Other countries into the mix. China has a huge dominant share on the processing and the production of rare earth products. Most rare earths produced by China are consumed within China. So it'd be hard for China to just target rare earth exports to the US because they're in a lot of different different products, and probably harm Japan and other countries that doesn't want to harm. But China could cutoff, for instance, experts magnets, which would be hugely that. Mental to supply chains industries. So this is just raised the whole specter of China's dominance over these supply chains. How easy would it be for another supplier, just to step into the breach replace China? People are looking at sourcing production, but it's not as simple as just finding a rare earth mine digging it up. You know, it needs to be separated processed and not com. Be environmentally damaging. So you need to get environmental permits. We need to be processed separated, and then put into products. So it is quite a long supply chain, someone like apple would be quite a few steps removed from the actual mind. And I think people are just waking up now to China's dominance on this sort of intermediate section of the supply, chain, which is the processing, which can be energy intensive can use acid in the west just hasn't built these things, partly because as I said environmental permits, and things like that. But as a result, we waken off and China has huge dominance in this area. Area, and we kind of didn't see it coming. I think that's true. I think in the era of globalization in eighties nineties people in America were willing to ship all this stuff to China because they thought, well, we don't want the environmental liabilities and is more efficient for them to do it at a lower cost. And that was the whole theory of how markets work, right? But as a result in this era, where trade and other things that are weapon, these vulnerabilities, so Lee seen is thinking of this Chinese dominance, who's a strategic decision or is there a bit of luck involved? I think it was a bit of luck. Really? I mean back in the eighties China was looking to export anything they could to get hard currency. And so they had a lot of this stuff it's pretty toxic. And it's not that difficult to mind. So that's a combination that really lends itself well to all sorts of wildcat miners who don't have a lot of environmental or necessarily health protection around the people who work for them. So all of a sudden China was. Producing tons of this stuff at a lower price than anybody else. And so it swept into the markets there and pushed the few other minds of there were out of business. The other issue is that China initially was just exporting this as a raw material and you still had a lot of processing going on in Japan Korea, other Asian nations. But there was a face off starting around two thousand six and going through about two thousand ten two thousand eleven where China and Japan were at odds in during that time. China's attempts to cut raw material supplied to Japan ended up, meaning that a whole lot of the processing industry moved here to China. So it's really a case often of unintended consequences, what is it? That's provoked China into making its latest threat to restrict Expos. Is this the threat that we should take seriously was at a post, during I think there's a lot of posturing and a lot of overreacting whenever you get a situation where you have a super specific industry. Every and a lot of defense strategists weaving theories around it. So China is posturing a bit partly because they don't have necessarily as many retaliation nurtures against the US as the US does against China's. So this one then looks very, very tempting. It's very satisfying for nationalists in China to say, hey, you know, we can really hit you where it counts. But you also have Chinese nationalist and environmentalists, and patriots, who are pushing for experts to be stopped so that the environmental damage can be reduced. You know, they're very conscious of the fact that China takes it on the teeth for the sake of these consumers in the rich world, or even in rich cities in China. And so, they some of them feel that if they could only reduce the exports, they could also stop some of the really damaging mining that's going on. Meanwhile guaranteed people in the defense industries in strategic sectors in the US. Will immediately go into hyper drive over it as well. And then in between, of course, you have a lot of speculators. You know, people who wanna with the sup to get extra money from trading in these markets, because they're very small and very illiquid markets. So I think there's a bit of real threat, and there's a whole lot of posturing and hype, how is trying to use this dominance in rarest in disputes before. And you think this might be something that is an increasingly common tool this available to them. Well, I think you've seen ever since Donald Trump took office. You've seen a willingness by the US to use trade as a political and diplomatic weapon with other countries. Now, this is something that China does have a habit of doing, but I think when the US does it so overtly, it allows China to really double down as well. Is this a riskless exercise in the photo of China? What would be the risk to China to self putting this threaten to practice? Well, there's a couple of risks. I mean one. Is the law of unintended consequences, so, you know, you threaten to cut off the raw material. And then you get a lot of other people enthusiastic about starting minds elsewhere. You lose your monopoly another thing that has happened in the past is when China has made these threats or even when China has adopted policies to reduce its exports, what ends up happening is it helps catapult China up the value chain? That's positive if what you care about is China's industry and the value added of that industry. It's negative, if what you care about is trying to limit the extremely toxic mining practices, because it just increases the demand for this stuff. And of course, it's negative internationally because it leads to these very aggressive, very aggravated international disputes. And you know in a climate like this, you just really don't wanna play with that fire.

"If you call my peer Cheryl Sandberg at the time was running Atwood's online. And we had a virtual presence where advertisers could sign up right in any geo, effectively and publish ads on Google, but we had no physical presence. And you say, we'll why do you need a physical presence in these countries? And you need it for one of two reasons. Number one, you want to go get all the money, right? Like all the money. Go. Medium and large advertisers in countries. Not just a smaller, advertisers that you self serve. You want to get all the money and all the currencies against all the demand on Google search platform and the number to you expand into countries like, you know, C J, China, Japan Korea where inherently the consumer value proposition is different. And you may need a localized product and engineering team to think about how to build demand. And then, of course, go get the money, and so Larry and Sergei time of circa two thousand three basically said international, I think was less than fifty percent of Google's revenue, and they had an ambition for it to be more because they saw that search demand was already larger outside the United States and in it. And so they basically said go forth and multiply faster get us all the money faster, get us there faster. And at the time, I was responsible for Google, local and maps and a bunch of other business initiatives that Google and was asked to move over and build a. It out.

"Of its official process. The treasury department, putting out this report here at the top of the hour saying that although China's currency process remains, there's not a lot of transparency around it. They're saying that direct intervention by the People's Bank of China has been limited this year, so they're not naming China as a currency manipulator. In fact, they're saying that no country meets the threshold under the statute to be named as a currency manipulator. However, they are saying that there's a watch list to pay attention to in this report in addition to China, which is on that watch this, they're saying the monitoring list comprises Japan, Korea, India, Germany, and Switzerland. So those are the countries that the United States is concerned about. But officially according to the report here, Melissa, they're saying that no country meets the threshold as a currency manipulator as right now. Amen. In terms of being on that watchlist, is there some sort of a benefit and being on the watch list as opposed to actually being labeled and I've. China have actually labeled Carson manipulator. What would the US have done about that? Well, that's the really key question, right because we've seen escalating escalating tension between the United States and China, this trade war breaking out, it would be an emphasis point on the part of the United States to say, hey, you we're officially designating you, and we're going to take some action about that, but it looks like this administration not prepared to fully go there. Despite all the tension that we've seen earlier today, we did see the White House, take some other action that had some negative consequences for China that goes to the United States. And now that it's going to withdraw from a global postal union. They said the the administration said, was giving China too much of an advantage in terms of sending cheap packages into the United States, particularly for online retail. And also they said for opioids and drugs. So the United States signaling, it's willing to pull out of that global postal union in an effort to stem. Some of that incoming trade from China. The idea here is that that benefited Chinese export ex. Supporters and hurt American exporters who are trying to send packages to China. So they are willing to do some things in relation to China, but they're just not willing to go as far as

"European countries in the united states begin to look really intensely inward it doesn't mean the china japan korea all of east asia are not going to continue to aggressively build trade relationships with africa with latin america with south asia that's going to happen no matter what and so looking inward israeli the worst thing i think that the powerful oecd countries can do but you're right gene there there is a very strong a antiglobalization mood now my own sense of it is that that will continue until it becomes quite clear that that antiglobalization mood is not shared by the rest of the world and spaces start getting filled by others as as the oecd countries pull out i i don't know where this conversations going but what we're trying to do is just bring the reality of how the global economy works now to to to people i mean in the things like i think there are some people would say the or should be self sufficient we can close all our borders extremists say that if that were to happen we've actually that a calculation if we were to disclose borders and not and stop trade i mean it's hard to imagine but if we were to do that the purchasing power of the bottom forty percent would go down over 50 percent so there there would be a very rapid impoverishment of of poor people and you know wealthy people would would do as well as they always do so from my perspective in in in terms of our mission which is to engel and extreme poverty in the world globalisation has to increase and we have to get even more intense about figuring out how every single country will fit in to the global economy of the future and that's a really really difficult task because automation while automation's gonna have an impact the united states is going to have a much more devastating impact in develop in countries twothirds of currently existing jobs in low and middleincome countries will will be gone because of automation i'm going to take you back to your classmates here on facebook when you you noted that wait we haven't taken the skills gap cap seriously enough here if they were asking you today why are you going on for more school and pain fourth they be asking you why are you borrowing took out a score to.
